"I just don't know what I'm
going to do," Mrs. Sherron
Davis told the Advocate.
They've always let the elder-
ly people who depend on our
checks to come in on the
third pay their electric bills
when their checks come in.
Now they're threatening to
cut us all off today! What
about the elderly people on
oxygen?"

Central Florida Electric Cus-
tomers throughout the area
got letters this week stating
that iftheir bills were not
paid by the 29th of Decem-
ber, that they faced immedi-
ate interruption of their
electric service. Customers
who called the office and
who were able to get through
were told that the policy
passed by the current board
willonly allow one exten-
sion every six months.

The Advocate attempted to
contact Central Florida Elec-
tric Cooperative for com-
ment and was'forwarded to
the voice mail for a Tim
Hastings, who did not return
the call deforei pesstime.

"We don't have any money to
help with electric bills right
now," said a representative
of United Christian Ser-
vices: "It's the Christmas
season and we've spent most
of our funds on our Christ-
mas boxes."


The only available program
to assist residents is appar-
ently at the Suwannee River
Economic Council. To apply
there for electricity assis-
tance, a person must present
photo identification, a social
security card, birth certifi-
cate and income documenta-
tion for each person in the
household and a electric or
gas bill.

A CFEC customer who came
into pay her bill at the office
in Cross City was told that
Friday Jan. 2 would be.the
final day for payment before
power was cut off for anyone
whose bill was not paid. The
CFEC employee told her that
she should save the money
out of her check to pay next
months' bill, too, because
there would be no grace peri-
od at all next month. The
customer asked that her
name not appear in print,
but said that her daughter is


AtpeJL.ng a uavuy Daly aInIIU.LtL
now and is on bed rest, her
son is disabled. Her $600 dis-
ability check will not arrive
until Friday Without power
to run their water pump, the
family, like most who depend
on CFEC, will not have wa-
ter, either, causing health
hazard issues. She also won-
dered how the family would
pay for food if they had to
pay last month's electric bil
and save money for next
month's out of their single
disability check. "Progress
Energy always works with
people," she claimed,"why
won't Central Florida? What
are we going to do? This is
really slamming usright af-
ter Christmas."

The lady said that she had
applied with the Suwannee
River Economic Council for
help, but was told that there
would be no more assistance
funds available until
January.

prosperous New Year.

There's a new Mayor in Town


I am very honored to be cho-

Florida.

Most of the communities

ing World War II in the U.S.
and on Okinawa. I received
an honorable discharge in
1949. Thereafter, I met and

Morrar Glanton from Hele-
na, Arkanasas. We were
blessed with three lovely
children, Johnny Frank Ju-
nior, Ronald Cornealus, and
Faye Everette Glanton. We
enjoyed a very happy life to-
gether. I am currently very


happily married to Deborah
Buggs Glanton and I have

How I survived a minor mishap


It was Monday, November 24th, a nice day for a short
ride on a motorcycle, right? Wrong, at least in my
case. I hit the pavement while parking the beast and
broke a hip in the process. All of which indicates to
me that I am getting a bit too old for this mode of
transportation.

The hip required surgery, which required a combined
hospital and rehab stay of about a month,, owing to ,
some complications I won't get into at the moment.
But I'm home now, and while I feel somewhat like a
three-legged mule in the Kentucky Derby with my
right leg virtually useless until the healing process is
further along, I can always set my sights on the
Wheelchair Olympics, and meanwhile I have a
month's worth of opinions stored up and plan to be
sharing them with you on a weekly basis as before.

And talking about opinions, there was no shortage of
material during the month of December. One of the
most bizarre items involves a California doctor who
had a thriving practice making diesel fuel out of fat
removed from patients through liposuction. Dr. Craig
Alan Bittner, formerly of Beverly Hills, was process-
ing the human lard removed from his clients and us-
ing it to power his SUV and a vehicle belonging to his
girlfriend..

That's right up there with Willie Nelson's tour bus,
which runs on used cooking oil that he scrounges
from restaurants when he's on the road again. Of
course, Willie is too skinny to have any fat of his own
to contribute to this effort, but he's a pioneer in the
field nonetheless.

It sort of makes you wonder why they bothered mak-
ing diesel fuel out of crude oil in the first place.
Diesel, which has traditionally cost less than gaso-
line, shot up to over five bucks last summer when gas
was costing $4.50, and even at today's far more ratio-.
nal pieces, it costs more than high-test: Just think, all
this time, they could have been making it out of blub,
ber.

And speaking of blubber, that was the source of the
whale oil that people used for lighting lamps bapk be-
fore the days of the internal combustion engine.
Whale hunting has about gone the way of the black &
white TV, but according to exerts in the field, Ameri-
cans are generating plenty of blubber through im-
proper diet and exercise.

Dr. Bittner apparently had that in mind when he
started using human fat to power his diesel engines,
but he failed to check out one important thing: Was
there a law against it? After all, if it's something
you're doing in California,, it's probably illegal, or at
least you need a permit and it will be heavily taxed.

As the good doctor discovered, California has a law
against using "human medical waste" to power mo-
tor vehicles. I guess they were having a real prob-
lem with that at one time, though it seems funny we
never heard about it.

Anyway, Dr. Bittner has moved to South America
where he's doing volunteer work at a clinic.

The year 2009 lies before us, and I hope it turns out
to be a good one for each and every one of you. Hap-
py New Year.


The stories you never heard '08


y Kathy McKinney


I mentioned a few weeks ago that the only reason people do
"the best of" lists at the end of the year is because they
don't have anything else to fill up the space. OK, I 'fess up.
In the words of Colonel Jack O'Neil of Stargate SG1, "I got
nothin'." It's silly to re-cap the major news stories; every-
body heard those. Some of the more interesting news items,
though, flew under the mainstream media radar. So, I hope
you'll bear with me as I share with you a few of my favorite
news stories from 2008 that never really'got picked up

1. Something strange Is afoot. This one has been driving me
crazy.all year. I can see a short story ora hovel in it..;maybe
one about clones held captive, chained by a single foot...I
just have to write it. Anyway, seven (SEVEN!!) single sev-.
ered feet, all in white tennis shoes, have washed up on the
shores of British Columbia this year. The first
four or five were statistically improbably all "Youth
rightfeet, and were washed up months apart.
No obvious pattern could be found; no ship allowed
wreck or plane wreck could be .pointed to as
the source of the travelling body parts. Final- on I
ly, two of the feet have been linked to one man
through DNA testing. No other body parts Midd
have been found. Just feet. All in sneakers.
Very, very weird. yol

2. No, she's no relation. Joyce McKinney got a lit-
tle news because she paid $30,000 to clone her
dead dog, Booger. It made so much news, that
somebody started making connections and
pegged her as the former Miss Wyoming who
held a Mormon missionary in mink handcuffs, chained to a
bed in a remote house After she chloroformed him on the
church steps back in the 70's. (I'm omitting the obvious
adult details here, you make the connections.) This woman
was really a piece of work...the more you read about her, the
weirder she gets. (OK, maybe she is related.) She spent a
while hiding out in Atlanta, dressed as a nun but was finally
re-arrested in the airport where her former victim was
working. She had ropes and handcuffs in the trunk of her
car at the time.

3. Nobody can eat just one. We lost lots of great and important
people this year; but nobody else went out in style (and
freshness) like Frederick J. Buer. Mr. Bauer invented the
can for the best potato chip of all time, Pringles. After he
died in May, he was cremated and buried in a ....wait for
it...Pringles can.


A letthf, to ih&f edito 1'
concerning the
new practices of
Central Florida Electric

I'm 62 years old and I have
early stage COPD. My late
husband Benny also had
COPDi We receive our in-
come on the 3rd day of each
month. Since my husband's
death my income has de-
creased greatly

Now I'm faced with another
issue, that effects all of the
elderly as well as myself. We
all recieve our checks on the
third of each month, but now.
CFEC is saying that our elec-
tric bills must be paid at the-
time we receive our due no-
tice, and can no longer wait
until our checks come in on
the 3rd, or that our lights'
will be disconnected, and
will have to pay a reconnec-
tion fee on top of that.


What are we going to do


FINANC

CHIEFLAN


about the elderly Who depend
on oxygen? Medicare and
Medicaid only allow for so?
much. What are the elderly
going to do for cooking and
other things that require
electricity? Now they're say-
ing that you can only have an
extension one time every six
months.

When I asked customer ser-
vice at Central Florida Elec-
tric who made this decision
about thismatter, she stated
to me that the Board did.
Why was no one notified
aboutthis in advance?

Are they trying to do away
with the elderly or has the
company gotten so big that
they don't care about the lit-
tle people that helped them
getbig? I think that every-
one who is affected by this
should speak out or they
won't care what happens to


3. The Force is strong with this one. Arwel Hughes drank a half-
gallon box of wine, dressed up like Darth Vader and went all
Ninja on a couple of members of "The Jedi Church." No,
I'm not making this up. In England, "Jedi" is listed as an of-
ficial religion and has almost 400,000 members...almost 1
percent of the population of the country Apparently there's
not much to'do in England except watch Star Wars over and
over. Hughes jumped over the wall of the Jedi Church and
whacked the two men with a crutch, pretending it was a
light saber. He was sentenced to two months in jail.;.hope-
fully in a cell with a Wookie.

4. Sentenced to the Copacabana. I've been telling my sister this
forever, but listening to Barry Manilow songs is now recog-
nied as a form of punishment. In Fort Lupton, Colorado,
Judge Paul Sacco sentences people who violate the noise or-
dinance to a solid hour of listening to Barry Manilow
songs...or the theme song from


is when you're Barney..your choice. I'm sure that it's
only a matter of time before this judge is
to stay up late defrocked as imposing "cruel and unusu-
al" punishment. I mean, REALLY, exe-
lew Year's Eve. cute me already, just don't make me lis-
ten to "Mandy" again!
lie age is when
u're forced to" 5. When ya gotta go, ya gotta go. A drunk
driver was leading cops oh a 80mph
chase through San Antonio, Texas when
he crashed his car into the house of
Bill Vaughn Blanca Trevino-Koester. Unfortunately,
Ms. Trevino-Koester was on the potty at
the time. "The impact knocked me off
the commode," she said. She said an officer entered the
house to arrest the driver. "He had his gun drawn and he
was yelling and screaming instructions to the driver, not to
move and to let him see his hands," Trevino-Koester said.
I'm sure the start of a Post-Traumatic-Potty-Disorder law-
suit is only a matter of time.

6. Don't be fuelish. Jose Cruz was charged with battery on a
police officer in Clarksburg, West Virginia. He was Stopped
for driving without headlights, but after failing thee sobri-
ety tests, Patrolman T.E. Parsons took him in for a breatha-
lyzer. During the test, Cruz allegedly scooted his chair to-
wards the cop, lifted his leg and "passed'gas loudly".''..and
then fanned the gas towards Parsons. "The gas was very
odorous and created contact of an insulting or provoking
nature with Patrolman Parsons," the complaint alleged.
The lesson behind this story is, if you're going to drink and
drive, don't eat beans. Happy New Year, ya'll!

Consumers Encouraged to

Remain Vigilant in Wake of

Data Breaches

TALLAHASSEE, FL The Attorney General's Office to-
day issued a consumer advisory urging consumers who
may have been affected by data breaches this year to re-
main vigilant in monitoring their credit reports, bank
accounts, and other personal information to detect any
improper activity as quickly as possible. Data breaches
can expose millions of consumers' personal informa-
tion, including Social Security numbers, bank ac-
counts, mortgage information and credit and debit
card numbers.
Recent data breaches include breaches at the Agency
for Workforce Innovation, the University of Florida's
School of Dentistry, Countrywide Financial and the
Bank of New York Mellon. The Attorney General's Of-
fice regularly receives complaints and inquiries from
concerned consumers and companies alike on this is-
sue.
In the wake of a data breach, affected consumers are
encouraged to take the following precautions to protect
against identity theft:

Carefully review credit and debit card state-
ments and monitor all transactions. If unauthorized
activity is detected, consumers should immediately
contact their card company and/or bank.
Request a copy of his or her credit report. The
only official source for free annual reports is
http://www.annualcreditreport.com. The website
works in conjunction with the three national credit re-
porting companies.

If fraud has occurred, consumers should report
the incident to the fraud department of the three major
credit bureaus; contact the fraud department of each of
their creditors; contact their bank or financial institu-
tion; and report the incident to law enforcement.

Contact the entity which experienced the
breach. The company or agency may be offering credit
monitoring service or other assistance to affected indi-
viduals.

In Florida, businesses and government agencies are re-
quired under Florida Statutes Section 817.5681 to notify
any affected individuals if a data breach has exposed
personal information. The Attorney General's Office
also urges the breached entity to immediately contain
the breach to ensure personal information isn't further
compromised and to implement remedial steps to ad-
dress information:security including issues implicated
by the original breach.

Consumers whose personal information may have been
affected may file a complaint by calling the Attorney
General's fraud hotline at 1-866-9-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-
7226) or submitting the information online at
http://myfloridalegal.com. Additional information
about identity theft, tips to protect individuals and re-
covery information is available online at:

He who blinded by
ambition, raises
himself to a
position whence he
cannot mount
higher, must
thereafter fall with
the greatest loss.

U.S. Cocaine Market Disrupted

Prices Continue

21-month Surge
(Washington, DC)-The prices of cocaine and methampheta-
mine in the United States have risen significantly over the
past 21 months, while purity of the drugs has decreased, ac-
cording to continued analysis of cocaine and methampheta-
mine seizures by the Drug Enforcement Administration
(DEA).
From January 2007 to September 2008, the price per pure
gram of cocaine increased 89 percent, from $96.61 to $182.73,
while purity decreased 32.1 percent, from 67 to 46 percent.
During the same timeframe, the price per pure gram of
methamphetamine increased over 23 percent, from $148.91 to
$184.09, while the purity decreased 8.3 percent, from 57 per-
cent to 52 percent.
"For almost two years the illicit drug market has been
showing signs of distress," said DEA Acting Administrator
Michele M. Leonhart. "These price and purity trends are not
just an immediate reaction from a single enforcement opera-
tion, but the result of continuous and persistent progress
DEA is making in concert with our international and domes-
tic partners. Across the United States, Mexico, and Colombia
and the transit zones in between, we are crippling.the world's
leading drug networks, and these prolonged trends confirm
that we have disrupted the illicit drug supply chain and U.S.
market for cocaine and meth."
These positive numbers illustrate the effectiveness of DEA's
collaborative efforts with Mexico and Colombia, working
hand in hand to cripple drug cartels by depriving them of
their profits. Since assuming office two years ago in Mexico,
President Calderon has taken on corruption and drug traf-
ficking at every level, and has ordered the extradition of un-
precedented numbers of drug criminals to the United States
from each of the four major cartels. Simultaneously, Colom-
bian President Uribe has taken on the FARC and AUC at un-
precedented levels, expelling AUC leaders and taking the
fight to the FARC.
Colombia continues to remain the number one extradition
partner of the United States and Mexico is extraditing drug
criminals in record rates.

"These successes illustrate the unprecedented cooperation
we enjoy with Mexico and the United States in battling
against international drug trafficking and violence. We can-
not battle these sophisticated drug organizations without the
collaborative efforts of Colombian, Mexican and U.S. law en-
forcement and the sharing of information and resources. As
a result of this increased success, we have seen more
seizures, more arrests, and more extraditions of drug crimi-
nals than ever before," said Colombia Vice Minister of De-
fense Sergio Jaramillo Caro.

"The Mexican government has emphasized the significance
of downgrading the drug traffickers' ability to generate in-
come by targeting not onlytheir command and control struc-
ture, but additionally their logistics for smuggling drugs,
cash and weaponry," said Mexican Attorney General Eduardo
Medina-Mora. "With less money available to corrupt or in-
timidate authorities and their communities, drug traffickers
will eventually revert back into a law enforcement problem,
dealt with by regita pdI ce forces as opposed to being the
threat they currently are to Mexico's national security Mexi-
co is committed to this struggle, and maintains a mutually
beneficial cooperation with law enforcement institutions
from other nations particularly in the U.S. -- to combat drug
traffickers' activities with the ultimate goal of eradicating
their pernicious and illegal trade."

FLORIDA SUPREME COURT RULES
ON SMARTER PETITION
Hands another major setback to "Hometown Democracy" disciples

(ORLANDO, FL December 18, 2008) The Florida Supreme
Court today gave the green light to a constitutional amend-
ment proposed by Floridians for Smarter Growth. The deci-
sion agreeing that the Smarter Growth Petition meets all
legal requirements is a major win for business leaders
who have supported the Floridians for Smarter Growth pe-
tition as a more reasonable alternative to the so-called
"Hometown Democracy" amendment.

S"We are pleased by the court's decision,' said Ryan Houck,
Executive Director for Floridians for Smarter Growth. "At a
time when many Floridians are concerned abbut our state's
fragile'economy, Hometown Democracy is simply not worth
the risk. Our amendment is proof positive that there are
better ideas out there."

Although Florida Hometown Democracy has often cam-
paigned on the idea of "empowering-voters" by giving them
a say on land use decisions, lawyers for the group (labored
endlessly to keep the Floridians for Smarter Growth peti-
tion from reaching the ballot.

S"Their hypocrisy continues," said Houck. "They pretend to
Sstand for the 'will of the people' and then promptly try to
Keep the people from voting on our amendment."

: Unlike Hometown Democracy, the Floridians for Smarter
' Growth petition would not place all minor and technical
comprehensive plan changes oq the ballot. Instead, voters
would be able to hold a vote on major issues by collecting
petitions from 10 percent of the electorate. Florida has aver-
aged 10,599 comprehensive land use plan changes each year
for the past four years under Hometown Democracy, all of
them would have been on the ballot.

Floridians for Smarter Growth was' founded by Sunshine
S State community and business leaders to fight extreme spe-
cial interests bound to destroy Florida's unique quality-of-
life under the guise of the Hometown Democracy amend-
ment. Please visit ww.Florida2010.org for more informa-
tion


CONDITIONS ARE DRY,
CAUTION URGED

The combination of recent hard freezes in north central
Florida along with an average drought index of 619 has cre-
ated higher than normal risks for wildfires. The index is
based on a scale from 0 to 800 with readings in the winter
months over 540 considered severe. And hard freezes kill
and dry-out grasses and other light vegetation that helps
spread fire. Wildland fire officials are urging citizens to use
caution, especially on New Year's Eve when many will cele-
brate with outdoor cooking fires, bon fires and fireworks.

While yard debris burning is allowed in most outlying
county areas without a permit, citizens must follow very
specific guidelines to burn safely and legally.

Backyard Burning Guidelines

Check with your local fire department and the Division
of Forestry (DOF) to make sure it is legal to burn in your
area.
Burners must comply with county/city as well as DOF
fire ordinances
Make sure you meet the required setbacks: 25 ft. from
your house and forested areas, 50 ft. from a public paved
road and 150 ft. from other occupied buildings
Burn only yard waste, no household garbage (includes
paper products and newspapers)
Don't burn on windy days
Never leave a fire unattended
Keep a water hose or shovel handy in case your fire es-
capes
Make sure your smoke does not obstruct visibility on
nearby roads
Be sure your fire' is completely out before you leave
Use solid waste pick up in the city limits
Remember...If your fire escapes, you may be liable for costs
of suppression and damage to the property of others.

For those who need permits, the DOF will issue authoriza-
tions on a daily basis depending on the weather conditions.
For more information on burn permits, call the DOF at
(352) 955-2010 or visit www.fl-dof.com.

ANNOUNCES
TOP TEN

CONSUMER
COMPLAINTS

FOR 2008

TALLAHASSEE -- Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson-is an-
nouncing the top ten list of
complaints for calendar
year 2008. It's no surprise
that the no sales solicitation
category continues to rank
number one, however com-
plaints are up substantially
this year. After dropping by
nearly 500 complaints in
2007 to 4223, the Do Not Call
law generated 5006 written
complaints in 2008. Bron-
son also says the depart-
ment was able to provide
more than 7.6 million dol-
lars in refunds in the form
of cash, goods and services,
3 million dollars more than
last year.

The department's Division
of Consumer Services is the
clearinghouse for consumer
complaints in Florida, regu-
lating 11 industries and at-
tempting to mediate prob-
lems with unregulated busi-
nesses. Complaints against
industries that fall in anoth-
er agency's jurisdiction are
forwarded to those agencies.
Bronson releases the top ten
list every year. to ensure
consumers know where the
biggest problem areas lie
and can take steps to pro-
tect themselves.

"While I am proud that we
have been able to provide
more than seven and a half


million dollars in redress to
consumers, the fact is it is
better to avoid having prob-
lems in the first place,"
Bronson said. "It is stress-
ful and time consuming for
the public to take action
against a business, so know-
ing the pitfalls can help peo-
ple make educated decisions
in all aspects
of their dai-


ly lives."
There were
37,227 total
complaints
filed with
the depart-
ment in 2008.

New Year with their pet,"
says Tompkins. "I guess it's
that pure joy and uncondi-
tional optimism that ani-
mals have that people love to
be around."

More people will kiss
their pet at.midnight than
will kiss a friend.

Women are 4.5 times
as likely to spend New. Year's
Eve with a pet than men are.


Democrats are more
likely than Republicans to
spend New Year's Eve with a
pet.

As has been true since 1908
when the first ball dropped
in Times Square, many
Americans will be celebrat-
ing at home with family or
friends watching the festivi-
ties in Times Square on tele-
vision. "In a very unique
way Americans throughout
the country are united at
midnight as we watch the
Ball Drop and countdown
the final seconds of 2007 to-
gether,"' said Jeff Straus,
President of Countdown En-
tertainment.

TINA FEY vs SARAH PAUN

When it comes to who they
would rather spend New
Year's Eve with, respondents
were split down the middle,
with Fey and Palin each
drawing 39% of the vote.

AND GOOD RIDDANCE
TO...

Participants were asked an
opn-ended question about
the one thing from 2008 to
which they would most like
to say "Good Riddance." "Pol-
itics was clearly on people's
minds," said'Straus, with
more people wanting to say
"Good Riddance" to George
Bush than to anything else;
he was mentioned more
than twice as often as the
second item, which was the
2008 election. Economic is-
sues (high gas, economic
collapse, stock market) were
not far behind, capturing 4
of the top ten spots. Where-
as "war" was the #1 item
people wanted to say "Good
Riddance" to a year ago, it
was #16 on the list this year.

Five Points of Life Kids

Marathon enjoys growth

spurt
Race day isn't until Feb. 21, but the Five Points of
Life Kids Marathon has already reached one milestone,
passing 2008's record registration.
The race is part of the Five Points of Life Race
Weekend that features the Kids Marathon and the 5Points
K on Saturay,.Feb. 21, and thFigPoints,.ofe fle
Marathon an Half Marathon '1 SSunday, Feb.22.The races"
are part of a
program coor-
dinated by
LifeSouth
Community
Blood Centers
that aims to
raise aware-
ness for five
different life-
saving dona-
tions blood,
apheresis,
marrow, or-
gan/tissue
and cord
blood.
Five Points of Life Program Manager, Brite
Whitaker, says registration for the Kids Marathon has al-
ready topped 650. This is 100 more than 2008's final total.
Participants from kindergarten through eighth grade run
or walk 25 miles prior trace day keeping their mileage in
a log sheet. At the race, they complete the final 1.2 miles to
reach the marathon distance of 26.2 miles,and all children.
who participate receive a medal and T-shirt.
"Maybe by reaching our third year, word-of-mouth
has helped spread the word," Whitaker said explaining the
growth. 'Also the kids will often wear their T-shirts and
medals to school on the Monday following the race, and that
created a buzz that carries over to the next year."
Whitaker said many of the runners will be logging
their miles during the holidays, so it won't be unusual to
see youngsters burning off some energy in neighborhoods
around Gainesville. She says in some instances the kids
have recruited their parents to jdin in the training.
"Our primary goal is to make this event fun,,but it
also promotes fitness and goal setting. Several of our area
schools have incorporated the race into their fitness pro-
grams," Whitaker said.
And there is still plenty of time to register. You can
find a link to online registration at www.fivepointsoflife.org,
and many local stores that cater to runners also have regis-
tration forms. The cost is only $5 through Feb. 18.
"Seeing the excitement on the faces as they cross the finish
line and receive their medals, it's really something,"
Whitaker said.

Many retail stores carry
inkjet printers. These
printers are usually sold
at a phenomenally low
price. Especially when
you consider the cost of
their manufacture.

To the unitiated,'selling
an expensive to produce
product at little-to-no
profit sounds like bad
business. Boy are the
uninitiated wrong...

The manufacturers fully
intend to make their
money, and lots of it, by
selling you ink for that
printer at a hugely inflat-
ed price. This is called a
razor blade scheme. It is
similar to the way certain
shaving accessory compa-
nies sell you a razor-han-
dle with one blade at an
incredibly cheap price,
and then sell packages of
blades for the handle at a
huge profit.

The plot, as it tends to
do, thickens... Ink is, for
some reason, excluded
from the Fair Packaging
and Labeling Act. This
enables the manufacturer
to sell you a great big car-
tridge of color ink that is
only partially filled. Were
not talking potato chip
bag partially full, (also
keep in mind that the
potato chip bag has the
weight of the product
clearly marked on the
front), we're talking
could be 2/3rds empty
kind of partially filled.

According to a study by
the American Consumer
Institute (www.theameri-
canconsumer.org) found
that "giving all con-
sumers more information
on the cost of printing
and printer ink would
help them to make well-
informed purchasing de-
cisions and save $6 bil-
lion per year." Among
other things.

How much do you think
ink costs? Let's compare
it with a product whose
price you may be familiar
with: gasoline. First,
we'll have to reduce our


edneck Tech

&

quantity of gas, as ink is
pretty much sold by the
milliliter. One gallon of
gas is equal to 3,785.4 ml.
So, figuring that gas costs
around $2.00 per gallon,
we divide $2.00 by 3785.4
to find the cost of gaso-
line per ml, OK my calcu-
lator comes up with
about 0.053 cent per milli-
liter for gasoline. That is
actually very cheap,
when you look at it that
way Now, lets look at a
price that The American
Consumer (www.theam-
ericanconsumer.org)
came up with for the cost
of multicolor ink per mil-
liliter: $5.14. Wow! That is
a lot of money for a sin-
gle drop of ink. Lets do
that math backwards now
with this new data and
see what a gallon of ink
at that price would cost.


$5.14 X 3,785.4 =
$19,456.96!! That's nearly
twenty large for a gallon,
of ink at the rates that
some companies are
charging.

Certainly some car-
tridges are better than
others. However, until
such a time as the Fair
Packaging and Labeling
Act requires inks to have
a clearly marked label
displaying their volume,
or until some right-think-
ing company starts pro-.
ducing cartridges that ac-
tually tell you what their


expected life is, there is
no real way of knowing
without finding out for
yourself, which could get
pretty expensive.


In the meantime...

Until some more scrupu-
lous businesses begin to
supply the consumers of
America with clearly
packaged and labeled ink,
there are a few thinks
that you can do to help
keep your printing costs
down.

First, shop wisely before
you buy a printer, do
some research on it. Do
you NEED a color print-
er? If you just want to
print documents, and lots
of them, a laser printer
may be the option for
you. Although the initial
cost of a laser printer is
higher than a inkjet,
you'll print more black
and white documents
cheaper than you would
with a inkjet, as the cost
of ink, and the amount of
ink.consumed, is much
lower in a laser printer.


Another thing to look
into if you're in need of
color printing is refilla-
bility Check to see if a re-
fullable cartridge kit is
available for the model of
printer that you wish to
purchase. If not, you may
want to consider another
model. Refilling your old
ink cartridge can be a bit
of a hassle, and you'll al-
most certainly stain your
hands/clothes a few
times, but at the rate that
your photo printer will
consume that highly-
valuable ink, it will be
worth it in the long run.


(ARA) What is your resolution
this year? To eat better, weigh less,
exercise more, to spend more qual-
ity time with your friends and
family? The majority of Ameri-
cans have not ranked paying down
debt as their top New Year's reso-
lution. But given the current eco-
nomic landscape, many con-
sumers should focus more on im-
proving their credit standing in
2009 than ever before.

"While losing weight is typically
at the forefront of Americans'
minds as they enter the, newyear, man-
aging credit health should take prece-
dence for consumers this year," says
Lucy Duni, vice president of consumer
education at TrueCredit.com by Tran-
sUnion. "Consumers who play a more
active role in managing their credit will
establish important lifelong habits that
can enable them to have a truly holistic
view of their finances."

Here are five easy tips to help keep
Americans on the right path with their
credit resolutions in 2009.

Tip 1: AlWayS pay your bills on time.

While it may sound like a no-brainer,
making payments on time is essential
whether consumers are trying to boost
or maintain their credit score. Yet,
TrueCredit's 2007 survey revealed that.
one in four (25 percent) respondents
had missed making one or more on-
time bill payments.,

Tip 2: Don't overspend.


Keep debt below 35 percent of your lim-
its. Although it can be tempting and
easy to overspend, it's important for
consumers to keep their credit card bal-
ances low and not to max them out.
Part of a lender's evaluation includes
reviewing a consumer's available credit.
If consumers are nearing or have over.
extended their credit; it may impact -
their ability to be approved for a loan at
a competitive rate.

Tip 3: Keep tabs on your credit report.

In order to maintain a "healthy" credit
score and to position yourself best with
creditors, it's important for consumers
to monitor their report regularly to pro-
vide an up-to-date view on.credit card
activity and debt. It also enables con-
sumers to identity possible signs of
fraudulent activity, as the potential for
identity theft remains high.

Tip 4: Monitor leases and loans closely
where you are the co-signer.

When consumers open a joint account
or co-sign a loan, they are taking on le-
gal responsibility for the account. Any
activity on these shared accounts, good
or bad, will be reflected in both credit
reports.

Tip 5: Long-standing credit card ac-
counts can help your credit score.

Consumers should be cautious when
thinking about closing credit card ac-
counts where they have been making
punctual payments over a long period of
time. In addition to lowering your avail-
able credit, canceling old credit ac-
counts can also ultimately lower your
credit score by making your credit his-
tbry appear shorter.

regular basis. Make it part of your regular
routine,jusl like brushing teeth.

Think Smart...
...Heads Apart


Head Lice Dead Lice
What can I do if someone in
my family gets head lice?
Check the hair of everyone in the house (don't
forget the hair behind the ears and at the back
of the head).
Pick out all lice and nils (eggs) using a special
nit comb or your fingernails. Bright light is
needed to see them clearly.
Put stuffed animals, dolls and smallpillows in
a plastic bag for at least two days.
Soak all combs and brushes in HOT water for
at least 10 minutes.
Wash clothes won in the last two days,
blankets, sheets, etc. in HOT water:aid dry
in a HOT dryer.
If you use lice shampoo or creme inse, read
the label and follow directions carefully.
Vacuum all furniture and rugs. Avoid the use
)of lice sprays..
Research shows that you must comb and
check hair for nits EVERY DAY FOR 25 DAYS
to stop the life cycle of the louse.
The best treatment is the COMPLETE
removal of nits and lice.
If your child gets lice over and over, you
probably didn't get all the eggs out. Remaining
eggs can hatch and cause a reinfestation.


Just the Facts
Most children who gel head lice,
do not get them in school.
Lice prefer to stay in the hair,
not the environment.
Licedo not causedisease.
Lice cannot stay alve in schools and on school
buses on the weekends, because they cannot
live without human contact for more than
48 hours.
SResearchers have been unable to hatch
lice eggs off the head, even in ideal
laboratory conditions.
Kids might goe head lice at sleepovers, while
at group or club activities, family gatherings,
babysiting, playing sports, watching TV or
playing video games together.
Head lice can spreadil
two heads are together.
Lice cannot jump.
They have no hind legs!
Lice do. not have wings and cannot ly.
According to national research, the reason lice
seem more prevalent alter school breaks is
because lice are a community problem, and
children have mre lose contact with each
other during breaks.
The color of the louse depends on when it had
it's last blood meal
Pets do not get head lice.
Head lice can happen to anyone.


Heads Up For New Ideas
The National Pediculosis Association markets
the LiceMeister comb. It works very well and
is available atarea pharmacies.
Hair Clean 1;2,3 is a natural, safe product
with anise oil. You can buy it at some health
food stores.
Soaking all the hair with mineral oil or a
mixture of half vinegar and half mineral oil will
suffocate the lice. Leave it on for six to eight
hours. Comb out the lice and nits, and
shampoo hair thoroughly '
'Not Nice io Lice" and other enzyme products
may help dissolve the nit casing and make
removal easier.
S heck your child's homework
SCheck your child's hair-

Remember:
Schools don't get lice, people do,


For More Help
Contact your School Nurse
or Clinic Assistant.
Ask your doctor, pharmacist,
or your local health department
office for information.
The National Pediculosis
Association has a lot of useful
information about head lice.
Their website is www.headlice.drg.

MOMS ASK MATTEL FOR
ACCOUNTABILITY

Can Parents Return Controversial Doll That Says "Is-
lam Is The Light"?

MATTEL Puts Audiofile Back Just As Christmas Buying
.Season Ends!

December 26, Washington DC: In a policy reversal of their
earlier policy reversal Mattel has re-posted their October 13
public statement about the "Islam is the Light" doll at their
website. Mattel's public statement admitting the controversy
about the doll went back up at their website just before
Christmas Eve and at the end of the Christmas gift purchas-
ing season. This is the second time Mattel has reversed their
public position about releasing information to the public
about the toy, a talking doll that advocates for Islam to chil-
dren without any disclosure to parents that it says "Islam is
the light.' Mattel and retailers have NOT announced their
post-Christmas policies on giving a refund to parents who re-
turn the doll to stores.

TO REVIEW:
On October 13, Mattel was FOR communicating about the
controversial doll to the public;,before they were AGAINST'
communicating about the doll on December 5, which was be-
fore they changed their mind and are now FOR communicat-
ing about the doll just as the Christmas gift purchasing sea-
son ends.
On October 13, 2008, Mattel posted a statement on their
"Investors and Media" corporate website, stating that The
only scripted word the doll says is 'mama,' and posted an au-
dio soundtrack that they alleged was from the doll.
On December 2, 2008, audio research by the MAMA orga-
nization and by volunteer parents nationwide exposed a
striking difference between the alleged Mattel soundtrack:
and the audio soundtrack recorded from actual dolls. A di-
cussion of the research can be found at http://www.labelthat-
doll.com/audio-comparison/. MAMA sent letters to the Fed-
eral Trade Commission, Mattel and the Securities and Ex-
change Commission regarding the lack of disclosure to par-
ents that the doll was advocating for Islam, a material risk to
girls in particular because of Shariah the discriminatory
and barbaric Islamic legal doctrine. MAMA also notified the
FTC and SEC of the striking difference between Mattel-
soundtrack and actual doll recorded audio. See the December
2 press release, "New Parents Group asks Mattel to Remove
"Islam is the Light" Doll from Stores."
On December 5, 2008, Mattel abruptly and with no further
public comment removed ALL statements and the soundtrack
referring to the doll from their.website. See the December 5
press release, "COVERUP OR RETREAT?
Mattel Inc. Pulls ALL Statements About Doll from web-
site..."
Just before Christmas Eve, December 24, 2008, when par-
ents and grandparents had already purchased their gifts and
the controversial toy lay wrapped under Christmas trees na-
tionwide, Mattel put their public statement and the alleged
soundtrack from the doll back on their website.

Moms Ask Mattel for Accountability asks retailers and Mattel p provide full
refunds for parents who choose to return the doll, whether they have a receipt
or not, whether they purchased the doll themselves or received it as a gift from
relatives or friends. MAMA founder Denise Lee said, "Parents and grandpar-
ents purchased this doll without any disclosure that at least iklf of the dolls
on shelves at Target, Kmart, Toys R Us, some Walmarts and ether retailers still
have the sound chip that says 'Islam is the light'. This is deceptive advertising
by omission, by the FTC's own regulations, and the least retailers can do is give
parents a full refund when they return the doll."

MILK INCOME LOSS
CONTRACT PROGRAM
SIGNUP BEGINS
DECEMBER 22

Gainesville Florida De-
cember 23, 2008 USDA's
Farm Service Agency (FSA)
announced that signup for
the Milk Income Loss Con-
tract Program (MILC) be-
gins Dec. 22, 2008 and will
continue through the pro-
gram's expiration date, Sep-
tember 30, 20.2.

The 2008 Farm Bill reautho-
rizes the MILC Program,
which operates similarly to
the counter-cyclical payment
program for crops, and
makes three key changes in
program operation. Under
the 2008 Act, the MILC pay-
ment rate and the per-opera-
tion poundage limit are
modified, depending on.
when the milk is produced.
In addition, a "feed cost ad-
juster," -is introduced over
the file of the 2008 Act,
which adjusts the $16.94 per
hundredweight (cwt.) bench-
mark price upward depend-
ing on the cost of feed ra-
tions. When available, MILC
payments are based on a
payment rate percentage
that is multiplied by the dif-
ference between a now-flexi-
ble target ($16.94 per cwt. or
higher) and the specific
month's Boston Class I price
of milk

Lawrence I. Brock


Lawrence I. "Larry" Brock age 90 passed away at 8:00 pm on Decem-
ber 16, 2008 at Cross City Rehabilitation and Health Center.

He was born in Peoria III. on May 12, 1918, the el-
dest of three children born to Lawrence I. Brock
Sr. and Rose Ann Colvin Brock. His sister Ly-
dia Ebert preceded him in death in 1949
and his brother Lyle Brock expired in
2007. His brother-in-law Howard
Rexstrew and wife Dorothy preceded him
in death in the early 1990's.


In 1939 he married June Adams, the
mother of his children. They divorced in
1949. In 1968, he married Pauline Polly,
who expired in 1974.


L


He is survived by his son James Brock and
wife Rita, his daughter Bonita Aerne and hus-
band Dennis., and grandchildren David & Lisa
Aerne, Sabrina & John Baker, Angela Brock, Andrew rock and
Thomas & Lori Brock, and 7 great-grandchildren. He is also survived
by his special friends Lucille McQueen and Peggy Dalton of Moultrie
Georgia, several nieces and nephews including Charlotte Edwards,
Lyle Brock Jr, Lee Ann Johnson and Mary Madewell.

As a young man Larry served in the C.C. Corps in Idaho. He worked
during the W.W.II effort in the manufacturing of ammunitions at the
Kingsbury Ordinance Plant in LaPort, Indiana. In the years prior to re-
tiring he was manager of Northern Electric in South Bend, Indiana .
In 1973 at the age of 54 he and his wife Pauline decided to sell their
home in South Bend and their cottage in Michigan and move to
Suwannee Florida permanently. They had discovered Suwannee on a
vacation with brother Lyle and found the area so attractive they wanted
to live there full time. Larry thought it seemed the perfect place to pur-
sue his favorite sport of fishing. They purchased three lots on a newly
dug canal at the corner of Leon and Canal Streets where they built
their home. For many years Larry worked at the Village Hardware in
Suwannee, he enjoyed visiting with customers, swapping fishing sto-
ries and news of the latest fishing spots. Larry had many 'favorite' fish-
ing holes that he shared with anyone interested. He and Jon Farmer,
Monroe Shaver and other special fishing buddies of their era had
some wonderful adventures fishing the River and the Gulf.

A special thanks to the friends and caregivers at Cross City Rehabilita-
tion and Health Center for all their loving care. Our heart felt apprecia-
tion to Doctors William J. Mott and Charles B. Stoer for their skills and
kindness.

A visitation will be held on Friday, January 2, 2009 from 5-7 pm, at the
Rick Gooding Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held on Satur-
day, January 3, at 1 pm at the Suwannee Baptist Church officiated by

First Baptist Church of Steinhatchee

The CHRISTmas gifts have been opened, the sweet desserts are eat-
en, the turkey and ham is now into sandwiches, all of our friends and *
families have laughed, joked, reminisced, and shared together making
precious memories that will always remain for this year of 2008! Where
do we go from here? Did you not find the "perfect gift" this year? Let us
remember: HE is "THE PERFECT GIFT" and HE is here at First Bap-
tist Church of Steinhatchee!!
Brother Leon preached out of the Book of Ecclesiastes Chapter 5!
Verses 4-6 tells us: It is better not to make a vow, to begin with, rather
than make a vow and then break it! Maybe we better be careful when we


make our New Years resolutions!
Avow is simply a promise! Have
you promised a holy vow to GOD?
Did you fulfill that promise? Are
you serving HIM today? Maybe
we made that holy vow in the past
and our life circumstances have
caused us to take another path, or
make different choices! We just
did not keep that promise, well
this is the beginning of a new year
and a good time to re-new those
promises! Start" 2009" serving
GOD! Not only going to church but
working and serving in HIS House
(the church). Maybe we promise
our children certain things, then
we do not do itl When we make a
promise... then we should try out
very best, to keep it, right? Are
we one of the 80% of the people
that says Yes... I am a Christian!
But, we are not walking the path
that GOD wants us to trod? Are
we serving HIM? We are not
keeping that Holy Promise? Yes,
it is timell Your "2009" will be "just
fine" if you make the right.... New
Years choice this time! Is GOD
waiting to hear your New Years
Resolution??
Our FBC Choir gave a second
performance of our CHRISTmas
Musical..."The Gift Goes Onl"
during the morning service! Great
job to all our musicians and choir
members! Also we heard a special
by Janice Morrow, Harry Gatlin
and Kenny Morrow! They sang:"
Where Could I Go but the
LORD?" And Leon Holden III
sang "I Give My all to HIM."
We continue praying for those
traveling, the Pitts Family, Freddie
Hires, Marcia Craig, the Jeff Tuck-
er family, Wayne Craig, Stephen
Reed, Timmy Southerland and the
unspoken request, plus all the
names called off the weekly
prayer list! And our constant
prayers for all our service men
and women serving abroad and
here at home in all branches of
the armed services, especially Bil-
ly Blakely serving in Iraqi
As you and your friends cele-
brate the New Years, let's remem-
ber these words... "Just beware of
the high cost of low living!!" May
GOD go with you and all your
friends!! This is our New Years
wish for all of you.....May all the
days of all the years that GOD
may have in store for you, be
filled with joy, peace, blessings
and love from up above! May the
happiness of "2009" be in your
heart to stay, and brighten all
your moments long after New
Years Day!
Always Sandy Coleman
