Board of County Commissioners


Emergency services to get back up crew


Joyce Marie Taylor
joycemarie.taylor@gaflnews.com
Emergency services for the county
became the main focus of a June 13
county commission meeting with in-
put from board members and
fire/ rescue personnel.
Public Safety Director Donnie


Land asked the board to send a thank
you letter to Suwannee County
Fire/Rescue for their assistance in
helping to put out the fire at Bass As-
sassins on May 27.
With only one ambulance serving
the county, and state statutes requir-
ing patients be transported to the
nearest hospital, which is in Live


Oak, it was stated that it becomes a
serious issue if and when another
emergency arises and that lone am-
bulance is miles away in another
county. Fire/rescue and EMS person-
nel for the county are all voluntary
and many times those people are
simply not available for a variety of
reasons, officials said.


It was suggested that a backup
crew for EMS needs to be available
24 hours a day, seven days a week.
It was stated by several in atten-
dance that there have been instances
lately where more than one critical
accident and/or medical emergency

Flames and smoke could seen shooting from delivery truck

A delivery to a lo-
cal business fell
short July 15 af-
ter the tractor-
trailer hauling a load of
freight from Live Oak to
Mayo blew the engine turbo,
leaving a trail of flames and
thick white smoke as it trav-
eled south on SR 51 just
north of 174th Street.


Car wash

minus

the suds
Joyce Marie Taylor
joycemarie.taylor@gaflnews.com
One local farmer offered a
free car wash June 15. He just
didn't know it at the time.
Motorists along SR 51 were
treated to a free car wash from
a large stream of water from a
nearby farm irrigation sprin-
kler system that was shooting
across both lanes of SR 51, just
south of 181st Street, drenching
the windshields of passing mo-
torists.






6 97113 07521 8


The flames and smoke
subsided as soon as the dri-
ver of the FedEx truck
pulled off onto the shoulder
and turned off the engine.
"The turbo blew out on
the engine," said the driver,
who declined to give his
name.
An Agricultural Law En-
forcement Officer was first
to arrive on the scene in re-
sponse to a phone call from
someone who observed the


flames and smoke coming
out of the engine's exhaust
stack. The officer was on
duty at a nearby inspection
station.
"Somebody called me and
I looked in the binoculars
and I seen, when you come
around the corner, all I seen
was fire," the officer told the
driver. "I hung up the
phone. I don't know who it
was, but I hung up on some-
body. I threw the phone


down and ran out the door."
The driver of the truck
stated he had just come from
Pilgrim's Pride down a back
road onto SR 51 and was on
his way to make a delivery
to Bass Assassins in Mayo at
their new location.
The officer told the driver
he was lucky he wasn't in
the backwoods when the
flames began shooting out.
"You'd have probably lit
every tree on fire," he said.

PAGE 2A -~ THE MAYO FREE PRESS, Mayo, FL THURSDAY, JUNE 23, 2011


Recently while eating
out, I overheard two
young women nearby
lamenting the hardships
of being married, reciting
quite an impressive list
of their husband's short-
comings. I couldn't help
but grin over their mutu-
al conclusion that men
are clueless...and know-
ing that if these hus-
bands were asked what
would make their wives
happy, they probably
would agree with the
clueless verdict!
"Long ago, in a primi-
tive culture, it was re-
quired that before they
married, the young men
had to bargain with the
girl's father for her. The
fathers of the village de-
manded payment for
their daughters generally
in the form of cows.
Three cows could buy an
above-average wife, and
four or five cows a very
beautiful wife!
Johnny, the brightest,
strongest, and most
handsome man in the
village loved Sarita.
Sarita most generously
could have been de-


scribed as being plain.
She was not truly ugly,
but neither attractive.
She was shy and older
than most girls at the
time of marriage.
The villagers' loved to
gossip about the bargain-
ing price of a girl. Some
said Johnny might offer
two or three cows. Oth-
ers said Sarita's father
might take one cow since
nobody was interested in
her.
Johnny went to meet
with Sarita's father and
offered ten cows for her.
Everyone was aston-
ished! That was the
highest price ever paid
for a bride in their vil-
lage! Soon, Johnny
herded ten cows to his
future father-in-law. The
wedding was held that
same evening.
Time passed, Sarita
changed. Her eyes daz-
zled, and she moved and
spoke with striking grace
and poise. People who
came to the village and
had never seen Sarita be-
fore remarked that she
was the region's most
beautiful woman.


Much later, someone
asked Johnny why he
paid such a high price for
her. Why offer ten cows
when he could have had
her as his wife for less?
Did he make such an of-
fer to make her happy?
"Yes, I wanted her to
be happy, but I wanted
more than that. The most
important thing that
changes a woman is how
she thinks about herself.
Sarita believed that she
was worth nothing.
Now she knows she is
worth more than any
other woman in the vil-
lage." Johnny concluded,
"I loved Sarita and no
other woman, and I
wanted to marry
her...but I also wanted a
ten-cow wife."

June 1 marks the start
of another hurricane sea-
son in the U.S., even as
the recovery from the
historic tornado out-
breaks continues in the
southeast. NOAA's Cli-
mate Prediction Center
has estimated six to 10
hurricanes this season,
with three to six of those
expected to be Category
3 or above. FEMA is pre-
pared to respond to the
needs of states in hurri-
cane-prone areas, but
any federal response
needs to be paired with
citizen preparedness- in
businesses and at home.
"You can't know far
ahead of time when it
will be your community
in the path of a hurri-
cane. If you wait until
the storm is bearing
down on you, you may
forget important things,"
said FEMA Regional Ad-
ministrator Phil May.
"Plan ahead, stay safe
and stay informed."
Being prepared makes
a big difference in disas-
ters, but it doesn't have
to come at a big cost. A
quick look around your
house or apartment can
get you almost every-
thing you need to build
an emergency supply
kit, which should in-
clude three days of food
and water, prescription
medication, battery-
powered or hand-crank
radio, flashlight, spare
batteries, first aid kit, can


opener, local maps,
moist towelettes, toilet
paper, garbage bags and
plastic ties for personal
sanitation. A complete
list of recommended
items for an emergency
supply kit can be found
at www.ready.gov,
FEMA's emergency pre-
paredness website.
Having the proper
supplies early in a disas-
ter is vital, but so is hav-
ing a communication
plan to stay in touch
with family members.
Your family may not be
together when disaster
strikes, so it is important
to know how you will
contact one another, how
you will get back togeth-
er and what you will do
in case of an emergency.
You should also share
your evacuation plans,
so others know that you
are out of harm's way.
Learn about the emer-
gency plans that have
been established in your
area by your state and
local government, such
as shelters and evacua-
tion routes. Have differ-
ent sources of informa-
tion in case one is not
working- don't rely on
just TV, radio, or the in-
ternet. A smartphone
can be a great resource
as well. FEMA's mobile
site, m.fema.gov, allows
disaster survivors to ap-
ply for assistance, locate
Disaster Recovery Cen-
ters and Red Cross shel-


ters.

Finally, know your
risk in a disaster. While
FEMA assistance can
help you get back on
your feet, it won't make
you whole. To protect
your investment in your
home and possessions,
you need insurance and
an understanding of
what is and isn't cov-
ered. A typical home-
owner's policy may cov-
er damage to your home
from winds, but it won't
cover damage due to
storm surge and inland
flooding. A separate
flood insurance policy
can be purchased, often
from the same agent
from whom you get your
homeowners insurance.
Flood insurance can be
bought separately for a
structure (home or busi-
ness) and personal pos-
sessions (contents)-so
renters can purchase
flood insurance, too.
Go to www.floods-
mart.gov and learn
about your flood risk
now. It takes 30 days for
a policy to take effect, so
don't wait.
FEMA's mission is to
support our citizens and
first responders to en-
sure that as a nation we
work together to build,
sustain, and improve
our capability to prepare
for, protect against, re-
spond to, recover from,
and mitigate all hazards.

Watch for manatees in Santa Fe River


A pod of Florida manatees has
been spotted on the Santa Fe Riv-
er, and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) needs boaters' help to
keep these animals safe.
"Water levels on the Santa Fe
are extremely low," said Capt.
Roy Brown, area supervisor.
"We're asking boaters to be extra
vigilant when enjoying the river,
especially where this pod of man-
atees has been seen."


The FWC said boaters should
scan the water near, and in front
of, their vessel for swirls resem-
bling large footprints, a repetitive
line of half-moon swirls, a mud
trail or manatee snouts or tails
breaking the surface.
Boaters can help manatees stay
safe by:
Wearing polarized sunglasses
to improve vision.
Using poles, paddles or trolling
motors when in close proximity

way.
"If you think you see a mana-
tee, give it plenty of room, be-
cause it may not be alone. It may
have a calf or be traveling with
other manatees," Brown said.

Day


Working and enjoying
it. This "Farmer Brown,"
(yours truly) has a veg-
etable garden for the
first time in years. It feels
good to step out the back
door and gather food
from your garden. There
is no worry how it was
grown or what it was
grown in or what was
put on it to make it grow.
I planted, okra, squash,
collards, radish, toma-
toes, eggplant. Believe it
or not we have had sev-
eral good meals from
these vegetables. Fol-
lowing the summer har-
vest time I plan to begin
mulching and building
the soil for a fall garden.
"If you have never
grown a garden, try it,
you will enjoy watching
it grow and produce.
The bonus is, you eat
well."

Buy American made
products. They are hard
to find. Someone told me
yesterday, that you can
purchase an American
flag, made in the USA, at
Home Depot. If you
know of other items,
please drop me a note,
give me a call or an
email so I can let our
readers know. This will
help create, much need-
ed jobs. I plant to go to
Home Depot to get my
next flag.

This is really powerful
and makes one think!!

A few years ago a
group of salesmen were
sent to a regional sales
convention in Chicago.
They had assured their
wives that they would
be home in plenty of
time for Friday night's
dinner. In their rush,
with tickets and briefcas-
es, one of these salesmen
inadvertently kicked
over a table which held a
display of apples. Ap-
ples flew everywhere.
Without stopping or
looking back, they all
managed to reach the
plane in time for their
nearly missed boarding.
ALL BUT ONE!! He
paused, took a deep


lailbox
* m


breath, and experienced
a twinge of compassion
for the girl whose apple
stand had been over-
turned.

He told his buddies to
go on without him,
waved good-bye, told
one of them to call his
wife when he arrived at
their home destination
and explain his taking a
later flight. Then he re-
turned to the terminal
where the apples were
all over the terminal
floor. He was glad he
did.

The 16 year old girl
was totally blind. She
was softly crying, tears
running down her
cheeks in frustration,
and at the same time
helplessly groping about
her spilled produce as
the crowd swirled about
her, no one stopping and
no one to care for her
plight.

The salesman knelt on
the floor with her, gath-
ered up the apples, put
them back on the table
and helped organize her
display. As he did this,
he noticed that many of
them had become bat-
tered and bruised; these
he set aside in another
basket.

When he had finished
he pulled out his wallet
and said to the girl,
"Here, please take this
$40 for the damage we
did. Are you okay?" She
nodded through her
tears. He continued on
with, "I hope we didn't
spoil your day too bad-
ly."

As the salesman start-
ed to walk away, the be-
wildered blind girl
called out to him, "Mis-
ter..." He paused and
turned to look back into
those blind eyes. She
continued, "Are you JE-
SUS?" He stopped in
mid-stride, and he won-
dered. Then slowly he
made his way to catch
the later flight with that
question burning and
bouncing about in his
soul. "Are you Jesus?"
Do people mistake
you for JESUS? That's
our Destiny, is it not? To
be so much like JESUS
that people cannot tell
the difference as we live
and interact with a
world that is blind to
HIS love, life and grace.
If we claim to know
HIM, we should live,


walk and act as HE
would. Knowing HIM is
more than simply quot-
ing scripture and going
to church. It's actually
living the Word as life
unfolds day to day. You
are the apple of HIS eye,
even though we, too,
have been bruised by a
fall, HE stopped what
HE was doing and
picked you and me up
on a hill called Calvary
and paid in full for our
damaged fruit.
Sometimes we just
take things for granted,
when we really need to
be sharing what we
know.
*************
This year our theme
for Vacation Bible School
is; "The Big Apple"
Emphasis is: Admit,
Believe, Confess
In our books I found
some very interesting
fact about New York
City, thought you might
enjoy them.
To prove the Brooklyn
Bridge would not col-
lapse, P.T. Barnum, co-
owner of Barnum and
Bailey Circus, led a herd
of 21 elephants across the
bridge in 1884.
Central Park is the
most visited urban park
in the United States
An average of 4.9 mil-
lion people ride the New
York City Subway every
Weekday.
Visitors must climb 354
stairs to reach the crown
of the Statue of Liberty.
(That leaves me out from
going to the lookout).
According to studies,
yellow is the easiest color
to spot. That's the reason
New York taxi cabs are
yellow.
There are 6.374.6 miles
of streets in New York
City. This is truly amaz-
ing. In 1903 there was
only 40 miles of paved
roads in the United
States.

Regular meaning of
ASAP - As Soon As Pos-
sible

Christian meaning -
Always Say A Prayer

Campfires currently
prohibited on
SRWMD lands
Campfires are prohibited on Suwannee River
Water Management District (District) lands un-
til further notice, due to increased fire danger
resulting from drought conditions.
Open campfires are normally allowed only
for those canoe camping along rivers.
The District urges persons recreating on Dis-
trict lands to exercise caution during all outdoor
activities. Sparks from vehicles, equipment and
cigarettes can start a wildfire.
Drivers on District roads are encourage to pay
special attention to vegetation conditions. Tall
grass and vehicle exhaust systems are a volatile
mixture and a fire can start in a matter of min-
utes.
Persons spotting a wildfire on District lands
should call 911.


NOTICE
Effective July 1, 2011, the Suwannee County
Health Department Branford clinic will be closing.
All services will continue at 915 Nobles Ferry Road
in Live Oak. Appointments can be made at the Live
Oak office by calling 386-362-2708. Closure of the
Branford clinic is due to state budget cuts and is nec-
essary so that the Suwannee County Health Depart-
ment can prioritize limited resources.

MAKE SURE YOU GET

THE RIGHT AMOUNT


By Kay Louder
Social Security District
Manager, Lake City, Fl
At Social Security,
our goal is to make sure
you are paid the correct
amount, on time, every
month.
Some things have
made that job easier
over our more than 70
years of paying bene-
fits, such as direct de-
posit and electronic ap-
plication systems. But
some of the factors that
determine your pay-
ment amount still de-
pend on good old-fash-
ioned human interven-
tion. And in some cas-
es, getting the correct
payment amount de-
pends on you.
You certainly don't
want to be paid less
than you're entitled to
receive. But what can
be even more difficult,
in the end, is to be over-
paid - in which case
you'll probably have to
pay us back, cutting
your payment down
each month until the
debt is repaid.
What can cause an
overpayment? Some-
times an overpayment
(or even an underpay-
ment) occurs because
the person receiving
benefits did not report
a change to us.
For example, if you
receive Social Security
retirement or survivors
benefits and are under
your full retirement age
and working, we usual-
ly ask you to estimate
your earnings for the
year. If you realize your
earnings will be higher
or lower than you esti-
mated, let us know as
soon as possible so we
can adjust your bene-
fits.
If you receive Social
Security disability ben-
efits, you should tell us
if you take a job or be-
come self-employed,
no matter how little
you earn. You also need
to report if you begin
receiving or have a
change in any worker's
compensation or other
public disability bene-
fits - or if your dis-
abling condition im-
proves.
If you receive SSI,




Working


you need to report any
changes that can in-
crease or reduce the
amount of your benefit,
such as changes in ad-
dress (even if you get
electronic payments),
changes in living
arrangements, income,
or increased savings
that inch over the re-
source limit ($2,000 for
an individual, $3,000
for a couple). Any
changes in your living
arrangements, income,
or resources could
change your SSI pay-
ment amount.
Learn more about the
kinds of things you
need to report when
you receive Social Secu-
rity retirement and sur-
vivors benefits by read-
ing our online publica-
tion: HYPERLINK
"http:/ /www.socialse-
curity.gov/pubs /10077

rity.gov/pubs/10077.ht

fits here: HYPERLINK

rity.gov/pubs/10153.ht

things to report when
you receive SSI by
reading this online
publication: HYPER-
LINK "http:/ /www.so-
cialsecurity.gov / pubs /
11011.html" www.so-
cialsecurity.gov/ pubs/
11011.html
If you're underpaid
in any given month,
once we verify the in-
formation that caused
you to be underpaid,
we will send you any
money you are due. If
you're overpaid, read
our online fact sheet to
learn what happens
next: HYPERLINK
"http:/ /www.socialse-
curity.gov/pubs /10098
.html" www.socialsecu-
rity.gov/pubs/10098.ht

With your help and
by diligently reporting
any applicable changes,
we'll achieve a goal we
can all agree on: paying
you the right amount,
on time, every month.

Florida's Minimum Wage


The Florida minimum wage is
$7.31 per hour, effective June 1,
2011.
Florida law requires the Agency
for Workforce Innovation to calcu-
late an adjusted minimum wage
rate each year. The annual calcula-
tion is based on the percentage
change in the federal Consumer
Price Index for urban wage earners
and clerical workers in the South
Region for the 12-month period
prior to Sept. 1, 2010.
On November 2, 2004, Florida
voters approved a constitutional
amendment which created Flori-
da's minimum wage. The mini-
mum wage applies to all employ-
ees in the state who are covered
by the federal minimum wage.
Employers must pay their em-
ployees the hourly state mini-
mum wage for all hours worked


in Florida. The definitions of "em-
ployer", "employee", and "wage"
for state purposes are the same as
those established under the feder-
al Fair Labor Standards Act
(FLSA). Employers of "tipped
employees" who meet eligibility
requirements for the tip credit un-
der the FLSA, may count tips ac-
tually received as wages under
the Florida minimum wage.
However, the employer must pay
"tipped employees" a direct wage.
The direct wage is calculated as
equal to the minimum wage
($7.31) minus the 2003 tip credit
($3.02), or a direct hourly wage of
$4.29 as of June 1, 2011.
Employees who are not paid the
minimum wage may bring a civil
action against the employer or
any person violating Florida's
minimum wage law. The state at-


torney general may also bring an
enforcement action to enforce the
minimum wage. FLSA informa-
tion and compliance assistance
can be found at:
http: //www.dol.gov/dol/com-
pliance / comp-flsa.htm.
Florida Statutes require employ-
ers who must pay their employees
the Florida minimum wage to post
a minimum wage notice in a con-
spicuous and accessible place in
each establishment where these
employees work. This poster re-
quirement is in addition to the fed-
eral requirement to post a notice of
the federal minimum wage. Flori-
da's minimum wage poster is
available for downloading in Eng-
lish and Spanish from the Agency
for Workforce Innovation's web-
site at: http:/ /www.florida
jobs.org/workforce/posters.html.

! Jasper - Two Division
of Forestry firefighters
from Columbia County
S working to contain a
Hamilton County wild-
fire lost their lives Mon-
day afternoon after be-
Josh Burch coming trapped by
flames, officials say.
Two other firefighters, one from Jasper,
were injured after trying to rescue the
two.
Josh Burch, 31, of Lake City and Brett
Fulton, 52, who has a White Springs
address but lives in Columbia County,
died around 4:47 p.m. Monday as they
fought to contain the reignited Blue
Ribbon Fire in Hamilton County, offi-
cials said. Both men were Division of
Forestry rangers with the Suwannee
Forestry Center in Lake City.
Two other rangers, Robert Marvin of
Jasper and Stephen Carpenter of Madi-
son were injured after an attempt to
rescue the two men. They worked with
the Live Oak Forestry Station.
Hamilton County Sheriff Harrell
Reid said four tractors were plowing
fire containment lines when one of the
tractors apparently got stuck on a
stump Monday afternoon.
"Another tractor went to help and
the fire got to them," said Reid. "They
were able to run a distance from the
fire, but they were consumed."
Burch was a forest ranger who lived
in Lake City with his wife and two chil-
dren. He worked with the DOF for
more than 10 years. Fulton began as a
professional welder with DOF 12 years
ago. He had been a forest ranger with
the DOF for more than nine years. Ful-
ton leaves behind a wife and two
grown children in White Springs.
Marvin and Carpenter were taken to
area hospitals. Both were treated for
smoke-related injuries and released.
The Blue Ribbon wildfire on CR 6,
about 14 miles east of Jasper, was ini-
tially sparked by lightning on Thurs-
day, June 16, according to officials. The
fire was declared contained early on
Monday, but extreme fire weather con-
ditions caused it to flare up again that
same day. At 3:13 p.m. the call came in
to the Hamilton County emergency
dispatch that the fire had reignited and
crews were dispatched to the scene.
The Suwannee Forestry Center has
been actively working the fire since
early Monday afternoon.
As of mid-afternoon Tuesday the fire
had been, once again, contained to


about 12 acres of the
206 or so burned.
Reid stated that aer-
ial photos will be tak- ',
en soon to assess the
area and it will be at
least one week before
all the investigative
work on the fire will Brett FL
be done.
