Statewide
Movement to
Unseat
Mockingbird as
Sate Bird

Flagler County joined St.
Augustine and St. Johns
counties in passing reso-
lutions that will be for-
warded to Tallahassee to
evict the Mockingbird as
the Florida State Bird in
favor of the Scrub Jay.
Scrub jay populations
have declined 90 percent
in the 20th century, due
largely to the snowbirds
who have relocated in
Florida and the toll the
increased population has
taken on the bird's habi-
tat. As the scub jay is in-
digenous, and five other
states use the mocking-
bird as their State Birds,
the movement is finding
substantial support.

Cullymont Farm in Dixie sponsored the
first sheep dog trials in Dixie County
on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The
Border Collie is the dog of choice for se-
rious dog trials, and it can take up to
four years to get a dog properly trained.
The dog handler controls the dog with
his or her body and a whistle that tells
the dog to turn left, right, back up, go
wide, or any one of
over twenty commands,
in an effort to encour-
age sheep to go over a
course, through gates
and finally into a pen.
Contestants are judged
on how well the dog
and sheep complete the
course. Entrants came i
from all over the south- '"
east to compete.

Wrestling was his gimmick
In professional wrestling, it was once consid-
ered important for an athlete who aspired to top
billing and the resulting remuner-ational benefits to
have what was known in the industry as a "gim-
mick."
What defined a gimmick could be almost any-
thing. A mask, for example. Why did a wrestler wear
a mask? Maybe he was someone the fans would recog-
nize, once he was unmasked (as nearly always hap-
,pened at some point), after which his career would
get a shot in the arm. Other shots in the arm included
steroid injections, which account for the gargantuan
muscular development of some of today's big names.
I personally helped one wrestler get over his
fear of snakes by letting him handle a harmless hog
nosed snake. He later graduated to a boa constrictor.
Another wrestler secured a permit to hunt alligators
(something I've never done, you understand), cap-
tured one alive and led it to the ring on a leash.
Most wrestlers who had any trace of Ameri-
can Indian heritage would come to the ring wearing
an elaborate Indian headdress. That meant they were
all "chiefs," perhaps giving rise to the expression,
"Too many chiefs, not enough (rank and file) Indi-
ans."
Earlier this month, we bid farewell to a re-
tired pro wrestler named Don Curtis, who had a "gim-
mick" that was getting a little hard to find when he
was an active participant, and which has all but dis-
appeared from the game since. That "gimmick" is
wrestling.
I have reference to a form of wrestling that is
solidly based in the amateur ranks, in which Don ex-
celled while attending college at Buffalo, NY. He was
also an excellent football player and was offered a
contract with the Baltimore Colts (yes, the Colts used
to be in Baltimore), but he turned it down to take up
pro wrestling at the urging of the late Lou Thesz, one
of the sport's legendary champions dating back to the
days when wrestling ability was a major factor in
qualifying for championship status.
I was doing PR and a variety of related tasks
for the Tampa wrestling organization at the time, and
I remember that, when a young newspaper reporter
made some condescending comments about the game,
he was invited to put his physique where his printers'
ink had been. Surprisingly, he accepted the invita-
tion.
Any pro wrestler could handle a similar situa-
tion in a ring, a bar, or wherever, but he might actual-
ly hurt the guy in the process. We wanted to con-
vince this fellow that there was a lot more to pro
wrestling than the put-downs that were occasionally
penned by sports columnists on a hung-over Monday
morning, but we didn't want him writing from a hos-
pital bed, demanding that pro wrestling be outlawed.
This was a job for Don Curtis, who was a mas-
terful public relations man as well as being an extra-
ordinarily capable wrestler, in whose semi-retire-
ment, could still have "stretched" most of the guys in
the business if he wanted to. The idea was, Don was
good enough that he could tie the novice up in knots
without actually injuring him. He always put the fin-
ishing touches on his subject with the "sleeper" hold,
in which one's opponent experiences unconscious-
ness in mere seconds. (Not an amateur move, I might
add.) What happened was we got a really great news-
paper story out of this young reporter. Don Curtis
handled PR about as well as he did wrestling and
could even do both at the same time.
Don promoted wrestling at the Jacksonville
Coliseumh for many years, and later managed that fa-
cility for the city He was an excellent pilot, dabbled
in real estate, and remained in top physical shape as
long as he lived.
Unfortunately, professional wrestling has pret-
ty much relegated athletes of Don's caliber to the
pages of history But I'll always remember Don Curtis
as a great athlete and most of all as a great friend.

In memory of Eddie Brown
03-15-2008


I met Eddie Brown the way most deputies meet what
some people would call a problem child.

He and his father "Herbie" were having not so typical
father and son difficulties; I was dispatched to the res-
idence in order to assist them with their issues.

The first time I saw Eddie, I saw a smart-mouthed,
hard-headed, know-it-all, with a bad attitude.

I saw his father as a hold over from a generation
past, with a hair trigger temper.

What I saw was me thirty some odd years ago.

A kid with no self esteem, and no hope for tomor-
row, his father a man who had a thousand questions,
no answers, and a burning desire to be a good dad.

Nobody went to jail that evening and neither was
charged with a crime. I took an unusual step and en-
couraged Herbie to enroll Eddie in the martial arts
(karate).

For the past several months Eddie and Herbie never
missed a night of class.

Eddie resisted the discipline, and the tough love pro-
vided by Mr. Taylor, the assistant instructors, and his
new martial arts family for a while.

However he slowly developed into a martial arts stu-
dent. He stumbled a few times, and even fell on a few
occasions, however, he never quit on us or himself.

Eddie still had his share of problems, he and Herbie
still butted heads.


The last time Eddie and I had a conversation, he told
me that he was tired of being in trouble; he wanted to
get out of "jailschool", and he wanted to learn to love
his dad and himself.

Eddie confided to Mr. Taylor and me that he had a de-
sire to be on the competition team. He trained hard to
develop the discipline and fighting skills, he and his
dad stayed over every class night to work on his skills.
Eddie's brother, Sam, was there too, offering encour-
agement along the way

Eddie died on Saturday as the result of a traffic acci-
-dent that he, his father Herbie, and another driver
were involved in. Eddie was only 14 years old. The ac-
cident is still being investigated, and I am not here to
pass judgment.

I am here to say that I will forever miss the kid I met
by chance or maybe fate
I am sorry that I only got to see a glimpse of the
young man he was slowly becoming.

I hope he knew that there was a group of people that
loved him and truly cared about him. We now pray
that his father and the driver of the other vehicle heal
from their injuries.

Eddie was scheduled to compete in his first tourna-
ment in Gainesville on March the 22nd.

in motorcycle accident
On February 16, 2008 at 3:50 PM. two motorcycles col-

Medicaid Fraud

Control Unit Retrieves

More Than $41,000

Through Civil

Settlement

Victim reimbursed $10,000,
TALLAHASSEE, FL Attorney General Bill McCol-
lum today announced that his Medicaid Fraud Con-
trol Unit has reached a civil settlement with a Tampa
company which provides personal care assistance,
companion services and supported living services.
The settlement resolves allegations that an employee
of We Care, Inc. improperly billed the Florida Medic-
aid program for services never provide to mentally
disabled Medicaid recipients. The fraudulent billing
resulted in a loss of more than $41,000 from the Flori-
da Medicaid program.

Investigators with the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit
began investigating the company after receiving a
complaint from a disabled adult who reported that he
had not received the services described on his expla-
nation of benefits. Authorities discovered more than
$41,000 worth of billing fraud which had been com-
mitted by an employee, who also stole more than
$10,000 from a victim's savings account. The employee
was arrested and charged criminally for his actions.

Under the civil settlement reached with the Attorney
General's Office, We Care will reimburse $41,636 to
the Agency for Health Care Administration. In addi-
tion to the civil settlement, We Care reimbursed the
victim of the theft $10,000.

MIKE JOYNER, FIU AMBASSADOR AT LARGE AND
E. WAYNE DICKEY, FIU INTELLIGENCE
COORDINATOR
The Florida Intelligence Unit, better known through-
out the state as "FIU" recently celebrated its 47th
year in existence. What started out as 25 law enforce-
ment agencies throughout the state gathering togeth-
er to share information regarding criminal activity,
has grown to an organization of 225 agencies, includ-
ing the Dixie County Sheriff's Office, who gather
three times a year throughout Florida in order to
share information regarding criminal activity, orga-
nizations and trends.
During his tenure as Sheriff of Citrus County, Sena-
tor Charles S. Dean recognized the importance of FIU
and not only did his agency become a member of FIU,
members of his staff played a key role in the intelli-
gence sharing and conference training. Senator Dean
has long been a proponent of law enforcement issues
enabling law enforcement to better serve the public
they represent. His long history of support for FIU is
continuing long past his tenure as Sheriff because of
his well founded belief that by working together, law
enforcement can have an even greater impact on the
lives of the people they serve.
On Thursday March 13, 2008 the FIU Executive Board
presented tokens of appreciation to Senator Charles
S. Dean for his tireless and dedicated support of pro-
moting the exchange of criminal intelligence and law
enforcement training for over 21 years to the men and
women proudly and unselfishly serving in Florida's
law enforcement agencies.

Spotlight On Dixie


Thursday March 20, 2008


Sturgeon returning to

Suwannee River

The Gulf sturgeon are beginning their annual migra-
tion back into the Suwannee River, and the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
reminds boaters to
slow down and be
aware these fish are
jumping. BE AWARE

Nine people were in-
jured in accidental col-
lisions with jumping "
sturgeon during 2007.
A fatal incident oc- Boaters have been seriously
curred after a sturgeon injured from impacts witi
jumped in front of a these jumping fish
boat. The boat opera- "s' '", ," ..."
tor swerved abruptly to F
avoid a collision, caus-
ing two people to be
ejected into the water,
with one of the men
drowning. i
"We certainly don't -
want a repeat of last
year," said Maj. Lee Beach, regional law enforcement
commander for FWC's North Central Region, based
in Lake City "Just one person getting hurt is too
many. We want people to be aware that the sturgeon
are returning, and the risk of injury to boaters does
exist."

In 2006, FWC officials began working on a public
awareness campaign to alert boaters to the risks of
jumping sturgeon. "We have posted signs at each
boat ramp along the Suwannee, explaining the risk of
impacts with these fish," Beach said. "We will be
checking those boat ramps this month to ensure all
the signs are still in place."
What's the best course of action for avoiding a colli-
sion? "We recommend boaters reduce their speed to
reduce the risk of impact and to give people more
time to react if they do encounter a jumping stur-
geon," Beach said. "The FWC also recommends that
all boaters wear their life jackets."

The Suwannee River appears to support the largest
viable population of Gulf sturgeon. Biologists esti-
mate the annual population at 6,500 to 7,500 fish, each
averaging approximately 40 pounds. Adult fish spend
eight to nine months each year in the river spawning
and three to four of-the coolest months in Gulf wa-
ters. Sturgeon tend to congregate in deeper and cool-
er waters with moderate currents and sand and rocky
bottoms.

Biologists are unsure why sturgeon jump.
"Scientists are still attempting to figure that out,"
said Dr. Jeffrey Wilcox, FWC Fish Taxa coordinator.
"The latest theories include that the fish jump to com-
municate, or it may be a dominance display No rules
require all jumps to -mean the same thing.


"I have seen these
collisions referred to
as 'attacks.' Howev-
er, these fish are in
no way 'attacking'
when they jump.
They are simply do-
ing what they have
been doing for mil-
lions of years ...
jumping. They aren't
targeting the
boaters," Wilcox said.
However, Gulf stur-
geon can get quite
big, exceeding 7 feet
and 170 pounds.
"They have five rows of

rock-hard 'scutes' along their


sides, back and belly. When sturgeon and boaters col-
lide, the results can be devastating," Wilcox said.
Sturgeon are a protected species and may not be har-
vested. "Sturgeon are protected by state and federal
law, just like bald eagles, panthers and sea turtles,"
Beach said.To report sturgeon collisions, call 1-888-
404-FWCC (3922).

The Neverending (Flu)

Story Strikes Dixie


"Shauna got it at school, now I'm getting it,"
said Michelle Clark, the latest of a long line of
county employees coming down with the flu bug
that's been downing students, parents, and employ-
ees throughout the county Candace Norton at the
Board of County Commissioners has it, the editor
of the Advocate has it, the EMS guys have it; it
seems like everyone you talk to has it, had it, is get-
ting it or is getting over it.
According to the Centers for Disease Con-
trol, the influenza epidemic is declining every-
where, nationwide, except for Florida, where it's in-
creasing at an alarming rate. Even though people
who got flu shots will get over it faster, this year the
flu shot formulation missed the mark a bit, and it's
not working as well as it could. The flu shot usually
works against three strains of flu, two 'A" strains
,_ and a milder "B" strain. The one that seems to be
1 going around locally may be a newer strain that ar-
rived from Australia, too late to be included in the
,ts flu vaccine. Doctors are also reporting that this
it particular strain often includes, gastrointestinal
symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, and diar-
rhea: not ailments that come to mind when think-
ing of the spring flu.
d During the 9th week of the "flu season", the
ence. last week of February, the number of patients re-
porting the flu was double the number of last year.,
from 1.8 percent to 3.6 percent this year. Northeast
Florida reported the second highest level of flu ac-
tivity in the state.
How to avoid the flu plague if you're one of
the lucky few who don't have it yet? Doctors rec-
comend that you get a flu shot (no matter how late
in the year), ask your doctor for an anti-viral drug
if you are exposed to the flu, like Tamiflu or Relien-
za. Wash your hands often, especially after handling
food, animals, or when someone in your house is
sick. Disinfect toys, refrigerator handles, phones,
television remotes, toys, doorknobs, toilet handles
and light switches that are handled frequently
Teach your children to cough into the inside of
their elbows or into a tissue instead of in their
hands. If you're already infected, it's best to stay
home and avoid unnecessary contact with people to
avoid spreading the germs to others.

NOTICE
From: Dr. David. R. Shneck,
DMD

I just wish to inform the people of the Tri-
County areas, and other areas, of the fact
that I am no longer employed
at Cross City Dental. I am
not on a leave of absence.
My written contract was
terminated Tuesday, March
su 4, 2008, due to a personal is-
sue between myself and the
owner of Cross City Dental.

The issue has nothing to do with anything
illegal, patient care, dentistry, or the female
staff at the office.

The female office staff currently are, and
have always been dedicated to providing
the best dental care for you, the public.

I am seeking future employment, but due to
the current economy (as it affected the
Georgia Pacific Plant, particularly) and my
age (62), I am unsure of when that might
occur.

I do I do graciously thank all of the pa-
tients I have been able to service at Cross
City Dental the past 9.5 years. It was a plea-
sure, and honor to have served you.

Thank you,
David R. Schneck

ELECTRIC METER READER
It's not what you think it is.
Very few people can handle the
day-to-day rigors of this job and
stay with it. You must be dedi-
cated, hardworking and physical-
ly tough enough to handle the
fast pace and all the obstacles
that ony a rural electric meter
reader can face. Every day you
will face the elements of the
weather, various types of insects,
bad dogs and other aggressive
animals. During the first six
months of your employment you
will be required to study and
complete a series of job-related
lessons. Also, you will be expect-
ed to learn how to use our line

e WITH CVS OVER IMPROPER

s BILLING

- Nationwide settlement addresses dosage
. switching of generic antacid ~
s
TALLAHASSEE, FL Attorney General
Bill McCollum announced today that the
Florida Medicaid program will receive more
than $186,000 from a $36.7 million multistate
settlement with CVS and Caremark Corpora-
tion. The settlement with the United States,
23 states and the District of Columbia
resolves allegations that CVS violated vari-
, ous state and federal statutes and regula-
tions by switching dosage forms of an
- antacid medication commonly prescribed for
- Medicaid patients. Florida's civil case was
d handled by the Attorney General's Complex
- Civil Enforcement Bureau (CCEB) which is
- part of the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
r
n "The State of Florida will ensure that
s Medicaid services are not undermined by
the greed of others," said Attorney General
- McCollum. "The Attorney General's office
S ill not tolerate actions perpetrated against
our Medicaid program and its recipients."


Y The settlement follows a joint federal and
p state investigation into allegations that CVS
switched Medicaid recipients' dosages of
ranitidine, a generic form of Zantac which
f is a commonly prescribed anti-ulcer medi.a-
s tion. The investigation showed that these
switches caused Medicaid programs nation-
i wide to reimburse CVS substantially more
t than otherwise necessary. Additionally, the
- switching of the dosages from April 1999
" through 2006 violated various federal and
- state statutes and regulations.
t

The substitutions allegedly violated Flori-
da's pharmacy laws which require that
drugs must be validly prescribed and that
the same dosage form and strength is neces-
sary for valid substitution and/or drug
equivalency CVS was also alleged to have vi-
olated Florida's state Medicaid requirements
for pharmaceutical cost-savings and phar-
maceutical
medical necessity by filling prescriptions
with the switched dosage form.


In addition to paying the $36.7 million to
the state and federal governments, CVS has
agreed to the terms of a Corporate Integrity
Agreement (CIA) with the Office of Inspec-
tor General of the United States Department
of Health and Human Services. The agree-
ment will include provisions to ensure CVS
does not switch dosage forms of medications
if the result would increase the cost to third-
party payers, including Medicaid.

Saving the Easter Bunny

A man was driving along the
highway, when he saw the East-
er Bunny hopping across the
middle of the road. He swerved
to avoid hitting the Bunny, but
unfortunately the rabbit jumped
in front of his car and was hit.
The driver pulled over to the
side of the road, and got out to
see what had become of the
Bunny carrying the basket.
Much to his dismay, the colorful
Bunny was dead. A woman dri-
ving down the same highway
saw the man crying on the side
of the road and pulled over. She
stepped out of her car and
asked the man what was
wrong."I feel terrible," he ex-
plained, "I accidentally hit the
Easter Bunny and killed it.
There may not be an Easter-be-
cause of me. What should I do?"
The woman told the man not to
worry She went to her car
trunk, and pulled out a spray
can. She walked over to the
limp, dead Bunny, and sprayed
the entire contents of the can
onto the little furry animal.
Miraculously the Easter Bunny
came to back life, jumped up,

The Rules of Chocolate

If you get melted chocolate all
over your hands, you're eating
it too slowly

Chocolate covered raisins, cher-
ries, orange slices and straw-
Sberries all count as fruit, so eat
as many as you want.

The problem: How to get two
pounds of chocolate home from
the store in a hot car.
The solution: Eat it in the park-
ing lot.

Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar be-
fore each meal.
It'll take the edge off your ap-
petite and you'll eat less.

A nice box of chocolates can
provide your total daily intake
of calories in one place. Isn't
that handy?


If you can't eat all your choco-
late, it will keep in the freezer.
But if you can't eat all your
chocolate, what's wrong with
you?

If calories are an issue, store
your chocolate on top of the
fridge. Calories are afraid of
heights, and they will jump out
of the chocolate to protect
themselves.

Money talks. Chocolate sings.

Chocolate has many preserva-
tives. Preservatives make you
look younger.

LCCC Hosts Its First College
and High School Science &
Mathematics Olympiads



BY LORI HOLDREN, LAKE CITY COMMUNITY COLLEGE ASSOCIATE
PROFESSOR OF MATHEMATICS

Since this past September faculty members of
the Science and Mathematics Departments at Lake
City Community College (LCCC) have been busy plan-
ning two Science & Mathematics Olympiads.
Mustapha Kane, LCCC science professor, applied for
and received funding for these events through the col-
lege's mini-grant awards.
Kane, along with fellow LCCC science profes-
sors and associate professors, John Rowe, John
Hawes, James Givvines, Scott Greenhut, and Juan
Guzman have been hard at work organizing the in-
house Olympiad. It will be held on Wednesday, March
26, 2008. Students who are currently enrolled at
LCCC and hold at least a GPA of 3.0 are eligible to
participate. The competition will involve up to six
teams of up to six students. Due to the limited num-
bers, priority will be given to students with higher
GPAs.
The college Olympiad will consist of six cate-
gories. In the morning, students will compete in
Mathematics, Biology, and Earth Science (Geology).
In the afternoon, the students will compete in
Physics, Chemistry, and Anatomy & Physiology Each
team member will compete in each subject area for
thirty-minute periods.
Winners will be announced around 4 p.m. on
the day of competition at a reception to be held at
Pine Square. Prizes and certificates will be handed
out by Charles Hall, LCCC president. A total of $700
will be awarded in prizes to first, second, and third
place winners.
The high school Science & Mathematics
Olympiad has been organized by Matt Peace, Erin
Scarcelli, and Lori Holdren. It will be held on Thurs-
day, March 27, from 8 a.m.- 4 p.m. at LCCC. High
schools in the district LCCC serves, Baker, Columbia,
Dixie, Gilchrist, and Union, are invited to participate.
Though similar to the College Olympiad, the high
school competition has a different schedule. In the
morning there will be three thirty minute individual
completion sessions. Mathematics and Anatomy &
Physiology will be in the first session, Biology and
Earth Science will be in the second session, and
Chemistry and Physics will be the third session.
Each school may send up to four students to compete
in each of the same six subject areas as the College
Olympiad. Students may participate in more than one
competition area provided they are in different ses-'"
sions. In the afternoon, teams will participate in an
exciting Quiz Bowl competition which will have ques-
tions from all of the subject areas.
Prizes totaling $750 will be awarded at the end
of the day to first, second and third place winners of
each of the six subject areas and for the winner of
the Quiz Bowl. All participants will receive certifi-
cates.
Faculty from the Science and Mathematics depart-
ments are working on creating questions for both
competitions. LCCC is excited to host these competi-
tions and looks forward to making them annual
events.
For more information on the College or High
School Olympiad contact Holdren by e-mail at hol-
drenl@lakecitycc.edu or by calling (386) 754-4464.

Florida Legislature Proposes

ban on all pit bulls


Rep. Perry Thurston, a Democrat from Plantation, is
spearheading an effort to overturn an 18 year old ban
on "breed specific" local regulations on dogs. Al-
though Miami-Dade is the only County that currently
bans pit bulls, fans of the pit bull are heating up in-
ternet blogs and lawmakers' email inboxes in an ef-
fort to fight the legislation.

Politicians from Broward and Palm Beach counties
say they'd like to completely ban dangerous dogs, par-
ticularly pit bulls, or at least keep them out of public
areas.

Kristine Snodgrass was quoted by WITN as saying
"Well, then there's a question of what are you going to
do with all the pit bulls that they take away? Are they
going to lock 4hem all up somewhere in a big pit bull
factory? Are they going to kill all the pit bulls? What
are they going to do with them?"


Public Education Materials
for the Control of Lead
IMPORTANT
INFORMATION ABOUT
LEAD IN YOUR DRINKING
WATER.
Suwannee Water & Sewer District found ele-
vated levels of lead in drinking water In some
homes/buildings. Lead can cause serious
health problems, especially for pregnant
woman and young children. Please read this
Information closely to see what you can do to
reduce lead In your drinking water.
INTRODUCTION
The United States Environmen-
tal Protection Agency (EPA) and Suwannee
Water and Sewer District are concerned
about lead in your drinking water. Although
most homes have very low levels of lead, In
their drinking water, some homes in the com-
munity have lead levels above the EPA action
level of 15 parts per billion (ppb), or 0.015 mil-
ligrams of lead per liter of water (mg/L). Un-
der Federal law we are required to have a
program In place to minimize lead In your
drinldking water by April 1, 2008.
This program includes corrosion control treat-
ment, source water treatment, and public edu-
cation. We are also required to replace each
lead service line that we control If the line
contributes to lead concentration of 15 ppb or
more after we have completed the compre-
hensive treatment program. if you have any
questions about how we are carrying out the
requirements of the lead regulation, please
give us a call at (352) 542-7570. This
brochure explains the simple steps you can
take to protect you and your family by reduc-
ing your exposure to lead in drinking water.


main, you may have to flush the water for a
longer time, perhaps one minute, before
drinking. Although toilet flushing or showering
flushes water through a portion of your
home's plumbing system, you still nped to
flush the water In each faucet before using it
for drinking or cooking. Flushing tap water is
a simple and inexpensive measure you can
take to protect your family's health. It usually
uses less than one or two gallons of water
and costs less than $1.70 per month. To con-
serve water, fill a couple of bottles for drinking
water after flushing the tap, and whenever
possible use the first flush water to wash the
dishes or water the plants. If you live in a
high-rise building, letting the water flow before
using it may not work to lessen your risk from
lead. The plumbing systems have more and
sometimes larger pipes than smaller build-
ings. Ask your landlord for help in locating the
source of the lead and for advice on reducing
the lead level.
Try not to cook with, or drink water from the
hot water tap. Hot water can dissolve more
lead more quickly than cold water. If you need
hot water, draw water from the cold tap and
heat it on the stove.
Remove loose lead solder and debris from
the plumbing materials installed In newly con-
structed homes, or homes in which the
plumbing has recently been replaced, by re-
moving the faucet strainers from all taps and
running the water from 3 to 5 minutes. There-
after, periodically remove the strainers and
flush out any debris that has accumulated
over time.
If your copper pipes are joined with lead sol-
der that has been Installed illegally since it
was banned in 1986, notify the plumber that
did the work and request that he or she re-
place the lead solder with lead-free solder.
Lead solder looks dull gray, and when
scratched with a key looks shiny. In addition,

are mixed with water. The EPA estimates that three business days of receiving the results.
drinking water can make up 20 percent or Acceptable replacement alternatives include
more of a person's total exposure to lead. copper, steel, Iron, and plastic pipes.


Lead Is unusual among drinking water conta-
minants in that it seldom occurs naturally in
water supplies like rivers and lakes. Lead en-
ters drinking water primarily as a result of the
corrosion, or wearing away, of materials con-
taining lead in the water distribution system
and household plumbing. These materials in-
clude lead-based solder used to join copper
pipe, brass and chrome plated brass faucets,
and in some cases, pipes made of lead that
connect your house to the water main (ser-
vice lines). In 1986, Congress banned the
use of lead solder containing greater that
0.2% lead, and restricted the lead content of
faucets, pipes and other plumbing materials
to 8.0%.
When water stands in lead pipes or plumbing
systems containing lead for several hours or
more, the lead may dissolve Into your drinking
water. This means the first water drawn from
the tap in the morning, or later in the after- .
noon after returning from work or school, can
contain fairly high levels of lead.
For more information, call us at (352) 542-
7570, for more Information on reducing lead
exposure around your home/building and the
health effects of lead, visit EPA's website at
httpJ/www.epa.gov/lead or contact your
health care provider.
STEPS YOU CAN TAKE IN THE HOME TO
REDUCE EXPOSURE TO LEAD IN DRINK-
ING WATER
Despite our best efforts mentioned earlier to
control water corrosivity and remove lead
from the water supply, lead levels In some
homes or buildings can be high. To find out
whether you need to take action in your own
home, have your drinking water tested to de-
termine If it contains excessive concentrations
of lead. Testing the water is essential because
you cannot see, taste, or smell lead In drink-
ing water. Some local laboratories that can
provide this service are listed at the end of
this booklet. For more Information on having
your water tested, please call (352) 542-7570.
If a water test Indicates that the
drinking water drawn from a tap in your home
contains lead above 15 ppb, then you should
take the following precautions:
Let the water run from the tap before using it
for drinking or cooking any time the water in a
faucet has gone unused for more than six
hours. The longer water resides in your
home's plumbing the more lead it may con-
tain. Flushing the tap means running the cold
water faucet until the water gets noticeably
colder, usually about 15-30 seconds. If your
house has a lead service line to the water


Have an electrician check your wiring. If
grounding wires from the electrical system are
attached to your pipes, corrosion may be
greater. Check with a licensed electrician or
your local electrical code to determine If your
wiring can be grounded elsewhere. DO NOT
attempt to change the wiring yourself because
Improper grounding can cause electrical
shock and fire hazards.
The steps described above will reduce the
lead concentrations In your drinking water.
However, if a water test Indicates that the
drinking water coming from your tap contains
lead concentrations In excess of 15 ppb after
flushing, or after we have completed our ac-
tions to minimize lead levels, then you may
want to take the following additional mea-
sures:
Purchase or lease a home treatment device.
Home treatment devices are limited in that
each unit treats only the water that flows from
the faucet to which it Is connected, and all of
the devices require periodic maintenance and
replacement. Devices such as reverse osmo-
sis systems or distillers can effectively remove
lead from your drinking water. Some activated
carbon filters may reduce lead levels at the
tap, however all lead reduction claims should
be Investigated. Be sure to check the actual
performance of a specific home treatment de-
vice before and after Installing the unit.
Purchase bottled water for drinking and cook-
ing.
You can consult a variety of sources for addi-
tional Information. Your family doctor or pedia-
trician can perform a blood test for lead and
provide you with information about .the health
effects of lead. State and local government
agencies that can be contacted Include:
Suwannee Water & Sewer District at (352)
542-7570
can provide you with Information about your
community's water supply, and a list of local
laboratories that have been certified by EPA
for testing water quality;
Dixie County Building & Zoning Dept. at (352)
498-1236 can provide you with information
about building permit records that should con-
tain the names of plumbing contractors that
plumbed your home; and
Dixie County Health Dept. at (352) 498-1360
can provide you with information about the
health effects of lead and how you can have
your child's blood tested.

Springhouse Quilters' News


Springhouse Quilter's participated in the National
Quilt Day Antique and Vintage Quilt Festival this
past Saturday This was an outdoor festival with all
quilts
hanging ..
from
buildings
on North ; .
Main ",
Street in
Trenton. -
There .
were ap-
proxi-
mately
250 quilts hanging from windows, awnings, walls and
the old railroad depot for public viewing. The streets
were filled with visitors to Trenton viewing the festi-
val. It was a relaxed happy time to be able to walk
the sidewalk and enjoy the quilt display. Everyone
seemed so happy and interested in the quilts on dis-
play. Many of the Springhouse Quilters served as
hostesses for the festival and wore early American
costumes. Even though the day was long for all the
volunteers working the festival, it was a wonderful
time to view the old quilts, and visit with the many
quilters in the tri-county area. A National Quilting
Association certified quilt appraiser was available
and appraised 39 of the quilts upon request of the
owner. It was surprising to see the actual value of
many of the "old" quilts and to learn some of the his-
tory behind the quilts. As the quilts get older, some
become museum pieces and are a very valuable pos-
session. Many of the quilts have been passed down to
family members who have no idea of the history of
the quilt.

A special thanks is extended to everyone visiting the
festival but most of all thanks is extended to the
many volunteers who assisted in hanging quilts and
working on the festival. The City Manager of Trenton
and City Commission was a wonderful help in assist-
ing with the festival. Even though the quilts were the
feature of the festival, it was really nice to see all of
the business so busy with customers.The show was a
special attempt to bring visitors to Trenton and let
them enjoy what we know is the very best place in
Florida. For information on Springhouse Quilter's,
