After striking a culvert, the vehicle overturned. Rescue arrived on the scene and removed the driver and the nine-yearold female passenger, also of Live Oak, from the vehicle. Both were transported to Shands UF by ambulance as a precautionary measure. Rumors abounded following the wreck that there were fatalities in the crash.

New Location: 163 W. Main Street, Suite 500 Service Schedule: Sun. Morning Worship.....................10:00 a.m. At New Beginnings there's always "a place for you." www.newbeginningschurchmayo.com 644291-F Now that the fireworks are over, lets continue to celebrate Americas birthday by considering the freedom we enjoy as citizens. Freedom is a powerful thing, and like anything powerful, it brings with it a measure of risk and uncertainty. Having freedom means that no one makes our choices for us, but it also brings the liability of those choicesƒwhether they produce blessing or suffering, the results are ours to claim. Given that the driving force behind Americas birth was religious freedom, it is strange that while our country is associated with independence, Christians have long convinced the world that we are anything but free. It is the common perception that Christians have a long list of impossible rules to live by, (hence their sour dispositions.) In his book A Scandalous Freedom,Ž author Steve Brown tells the following story: Abraham Lincoln went to a slave market. There he noted a young, beautiful African-American woman being auctioned off to the highest offer. He bid on her and won. He could see the anger in her eyes and could imagine what she was thinking, Another white man who will buy me, use me, and then discard me.Ž As Lincoln walked off with his property,Ž he turned to the woman and said, youre free.Ž Yeah, what does that mean?Ž she replied. It means that you are free.Ž Does that mean I can say whatever I want to say?Ž Yes,Ž replied Lincoln, smiling, it means you can say whatever you want to say.Ž Does it mean,Ž she asked incredulously, that I can be whatever I want to be?Ž Yes, it means you can be whatever you want to be.Ž Does it mean,Ž the young woman asked hesitantly that I can go wherever I want to go?Ž Yes, it means you are free and can go wherever you want to go.Ž Then,Ž said the young woman with tears welling up in her eyes, I think Ill go with you.Ž Galatians 5:1 says, It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm then and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.Ž God gives us freedom because He wants us to choose Him. Picture this newly freed young woman living and perhaps even serving in Lincolns homeƒnot because she must, but because she chooses, out of gratitude and for her own protection. In her world, there would always be one waiting to take her back to slavery...she would not stay free on her ownƒneitherHeart Matters will we. Our culture and our own desires will lay the same trap for us, so if we want to stay free, we too will stay close under the protection of the One who grants our freedom! God is after a relationship with you and meƒnot a list of rules. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.Ž (2 Corinthians 3:17) Healthy relationships always reflect freedom rather than bondage. Experience real freedomƒits your choiceƒbecause your heart matters.

These are funds that would have been paid by property owners if the SRWMD had not purchased the land. Payments in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) is explained by the SRWMD on their website as follows: When private property does become public property, it is taken off the county tax roll. Although the impact on county revenues is minimal … only 0.2 percent annually … the Legislature established a payment in lieu of taxes program in 1992 to reimburse local governments for the loss of revenue. Twenty-five percent of all Save Our Rivers land management funds are set aside to pay for the program. To qualify for this program, a county in which the District has purchased land must have a population of less than 150,000. Payments are made each year for the previous year's taxes.Ž Eleven counties within the SRWMD have received a total of $326,314 in PILT funding this year in comparison to the $177,012 they received last year.Lafayette County g ets a bi g check fro m SR W M DContinued From Page 1AHealth and the Management Experts, LLC.

Because it could happen anytime.Ž Picard said the drill turned out to be pretty much of a success considering Lafayette County is small in comparison to others in the state. This was a virtual test of our readiness,Ž said Picard. Such as with the volunteer department, how many people can actually show up on a given Wednesday at 12 oclock in the afternoon?

Ranch in Mayo recently to speak to potential new members who were invited to the facility in order to learn about Rotary and hopefully join the organization. Club president Leenette McMillan explained there are two branches of Rotary Rotary International and the Rotary Foundation. Rotarian Ricky Lyons read aloud the mission statement of Rotary International, which is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through its fellowship of business, professional and community leaders.Ž Thats like us,Ž McMillan told everyone, regarding the local group in Mayo. This is very basic,Ž she continued. Rotary International is us and then there is the Rotary Foundation which is our charity bank account basically.Ž Rotarian Tom Lashley then read the mission of the foundation, which is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education and the alleviation of poverty.Ž The basic motto of Rotary is service above self, McMillan said. It was then time for announcements and Rotarian Joey Pearson reminded everyone about the Annual Hornet Classic Golf Tournament coming up on Saturday, July 30 at Quail Heights Country Club off Hwy. 247 in Lake City beginning at 8:30 a.m. A 4-man team entry fee is $200 and prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams, as well as longest drive. There will also be a drawing for prizes. If you would like to play or be a sponsor for this event, contact any Rotary Club member. The tournament is being put on by the Rotary Club of Mayo and the Mayo Quarterback Club. The funds will go toward the Salina Land Pearson Memorial Scholarship, the Rotary Interact Club Scholarship, club community projects and it will also help the Mayo Quarterback Club provide support for the Lafayette High School Football Program. Next up was an overview of Interact, a service club within Rotary International for young people ages 12 to 18 that are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs. The last item on the agenda was a fun game of Mayo Rotary Family Feud led by McMillan. The audience was split into two groups and the object of the game was to pick the top 10 things that the Rotary Club of Mayo has done this year. The top 10 were the Veterans Dinner, Purple Pinkie (where $1,000 was raised toward Polio Plus), Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) for Logan Luse and Sara Kolvinsky, the Golf Tournament, the Teacher Luncheon, Interact Scholarship, Dictionaries for an elementary school in Costa Rica, the Family Basket (which turned out to be a truckload of items for a family whose house burned), Sponsoring Interact and Candidate Speaking in Town Park.

The meals will be served until Aug. 1 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This program is provided by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service and is geared toward geographical areas of need. During the school year many children receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch through the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. When school lets out these children many times suffer from a lack of nutrition. Hunger can cause not only illness and health issues, but can also prevent these children from being able to concentrate on learning. By utilizing the Summer Food Service Program, that nutrition gap can be filled. All children 18 and younger are eligible for these no-charge, nutritionally balanced meals during summer vacation, regardless of race, color, sex or national origin. The Summer Food Service Program will provide meals to all children in the immediate vicinity, in addition to those enrolled in summer school.Su mm er m eal p ro g ra m in Mayo

The Chamber of Commerce is under new leadership and would like to take this time to reach out to the citizens of Lafayette County for ideas to bring this event back to a pioneer day theme. We have been working diligently in the past few months to make this happen and are making progress in doing so but would welcome any input from you the citizens. On Friday night, October 7, we will be having Southern Gospel Night with two wonderful groups; Southern Revival and Crimson Flow. Saturday's entertainment is lining up to be a wonderful day of entertainment. We have approximately 6 spots left open at the present and if you are interested in performing on Saturday please call Leta Hawkins at 294-2301. Saturday, October 8th, is lining up to be a great day with vendors selling only handmade crafts, food vendors, demonstrators, and games for the children. We will be having Civil War reenactors with their cannons, blacksmiths, and hopefully many more demonstrators and events leading back to the pioneer days. If any of you ladies and gentleman would like to secure a booth to sell your homemade jams, jellies, pickles, etc., please contact the Chamber at 2942705 Monday through Friday from 10 AM until 3 PM for an application. Please do this as soon as possible as this year we are avoiding having many of one kind of vendor so as to be fair to the vendors. We would like to have demonstrations of candle making, and butter churning. Demonstrators will not be charged for a booth rental if they are only demonstrating but if selling a product will be charged the normal rate. Our parade will be on Saturday morning beginning at 10 AM with line-up at the Assembly of God at 9 AM. Please contact the Chamber if you would like to be in the parade or be in the line-up at 9 AM. Following our local emergency vehicles and Lafayette High School Band it will be first come, first serve in the parade.

We’re proud to serve!Sports L Lafayette will try to bring a home a state title this weekend when it competes in the 12-under Babe Ruth North Florida State Tournament. Photo: Paul Buchanan (SuwanneeSports.com)By Corey Davis LIVE OAK-Thirty teams begin their quest to not only win a state title but advance to the Babe Ruth Southeast Regionals by competing in the Babe Ruth North Florida State tournament this weekend at the First Federal Sportsplex. The weekend consists of three separate tournaments held at the First Federal Sportsplex and Suwannee Highs Booster Field. Competing in the 12-under 50/70 Division is Atlantic Beach, Lafayette, Marietta Bullsbay, Madison County, Melrose, Myers Park, Orange Park, Santa Fe, San Jose and host Suwannee. The tournament is divided into two pools American and National, with Atlantic Beach, Melrose, Madison County, San Jose and Myers Park in the American Division and Lafayette, Marietta Bullsbay, Orange Park, Santa Fe and Suwannee in the National Division. Each team will play every team in its division once for a total of four pool games, The top two teams in each pool advance Sunday to a single elimination championship round. Madison went 5-0 to win the District 6 title June 23-26 in Live Oak with wins over Taylor 18-1, Wakulla 5-2, Jefferson 144, Lafayette 9-5 and Lafayette again 14-9 in the championship game. Lafayette was the District 6 runner-up after finishing 3-2 with wins over Hamilton 13-8, Suwannee Valley 18-7 and Lake City 8-1, with both losses coming to Madison. As the host of the state tournament, Suwannee earned an automatic berth into the state tournament despite finishing 1-2 at the district tournament. Competing in the 15-under tourney is Bradford County, Clay County PAL, Dinsmore, Fort White, Jacksonville Beach, San Souci, Tallahassee and host Suwannee. Like the 12-under division, the tournament is divided into two pools American and National, with Fort White, Bradford, Tallahassee and San Souci in the American Division and Dinsmore, Jacksonville Beach, Clay PAL and Suwannee in the National Division. Fort White went 3-1 to win the 15-under District 6 title June 23-26 in Live Oak with wins over Suwannee 7-5, Lafayette 11-3 and Suwannee 8-3 in the if necessary title game. Suwannee was the district runner-up finishing 42 with wins over Jefferson 17-7, Jefferson 9-4, Lafayette 7-6 and Fort White 13-6. In the 12-under 40/60 Division, only two teams North Central Florida and Meyers Park out of Tallahassee, will compete. The two teams will face off in a best of three series beginning Saturday morning. Until recently, there was one state tournament with teams coming from all over the state. However, as more and more associations and parks decided to switch from Little League to Babe Ruth there became a need to split the state into half and have separate North and South state tournaments.

Several days of rain forced the tournament staff to move part of the tournament to another facility to try to get all of the necessary games in. The double elimination tournament for 8-under, 10-under, 12-under, 14-under and 16-under teams at Davis Park started last Wednesday with opening round games. With clear skies the tournament was able to get in several games the first two days before bad weather Friday, Saturday and Sunday forced teams to sit as many as three days before playing there next game. Suwannees 14-under team coached by Troy Watson made it to the semifinals before falling to the eventual state runner-up Clay PAL 4-2. The team opened up with a 10-0 win over Waldo to advance to the winners bracket quarterfinals, where they fell 5-1 to eventual state champion Ocala. Fighting out the losers bracket three days later thanks to the rain delays, Suwannee fought off elimination with a 3-1 win over Oviedo before being eliminated in the next game. Ocala went undefeated in the tournament 4-0 with wins over Fort White 7-0, Suwannee 5-1, North Central Florida 6-2 and Clay PAL 12-0 in the championship round. Branfords 16-under team coached by Ladon Terry didnt fare as well losing their first two games of the tournament to be eliminated. In the opening game, the Lake City Sliders handed the Branford Bucs a 15-2 loss last Wednesday to drop them into the losers bracket, where Altamonte eliminated Branford 11-4 in the ensuing game. Lake City went 4-0 in the tournament with wins over Branford 15-2, Mandarin 12-0, Ocala 10-4 and 14-3 to win the state title. The Sliders will join the 14-under state champions the Ocala Shockers at the Southeast Regional July 21 in Richmond, VA. The winner of the 16-under Southeast Regional will advance to the World Series August 6-13 in Lamar, Colorado. Branford fell short of a state title this past weekend in Ponte Vedra Beach.

So when the City of Monticello approached them with the prospect of using reclaimed water to irrigate, the choice was simple. Nearly 30 years ago, the nursery designed a system to capture stormwater and irrigation runoff to be reused for irrigation. That system continues to recycle water today. Tarps and liners placed under potted plants catch irrigation and stormwater, and the system directs that runoff into holding ponds to be stored and reused. Thad Beshears, whose family has owned the business for 36 years, remembers his father, Fred, taking the lead on creating the system. The ground was contoured, swales were built, culverts and pipes were installed … all to recycle water. We considered this project cutting edge at the time,Ž said Thad. My dad knew that water was a precious asset then, and we continue to practice environmental stewardship today.Ž Now Simpson Nurseries has taken the concept of using recycled water a step further. In addition to making good use of runoff, they now use highly treated wastewater for irrigation, thanks to the Citys newly established reclaimed water program. With grant funding from the Suwannee River Water Management District (District), the City of Monticello upgraded its treatment plant, built a reclaimed water reservoir, and installed pipes and a pump station to send water to the nursery. The business once supplemented runoff with groundwater. Now by receiving reclaimed water, they have offset much of their groundwater use. Simpson Nurseries currently receives 400,000-500,000 gallons of reclaimed water daily to irrigate 800 acres of trees and shrubs. Previously, the Citys treatment plant discharged into a series of wetlands. The system was costly and maintenance-intensive. Joe Miller, of George & Associates Consulting Engineers, the company that designed the system for the City of Monticello, said the new reclaimed water system is cost-effective and good for the environment. The Beshears are also pleased with the outcome. The District has contributed $1.5 million from its Water Protection and Sustainability Trust Fund toward the $2.2 million project. The reclaimed water program was a cooperative project between the District, the City of Monticello, the Department of Environmental Protection and the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Reclaimed water … highly treated wastewater … can be reused for irrigation, toilet flushing, clothes washing, and other non-potable uses. The District considers reuse water a proactive approach and an effective tool to solve water supply issues. Reclaimed water has been identified as an alternative water supply to help meet water demands over the next 20 years. The District is working with municipal water suppliers within its 15county region to update their wastewater treatment plants with the capacity to produce reuse water. The District will expand its reuse program to other areas within its region when funding becomes available. The City of Monticello hopes to expand its capacity to produce and distribute reclaimed water to additional customers in the future, including a local ball field and a golf course. Thad Beshears is appreciative of the emphasis his father has placed on protecting the environment.Monticello nursery is first customer of Citys reclaimed water programTABE testsMonday Thursday at 5 p.m. (by appointment): TABE (Test of Adult Basic Education) at NFCC Testing Center (Bldg. #16), Madison.
