Legislators hear



area needs



and concerns

Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
State Senator Nancy Argenziano and
Rep. Dwight Stansel held a Legislative
hearing in Live Oak Jan. 6 at City Hall to
hear what citizens have on their minds re-
garding the upcoming Legislative session
that begins next month.
Stansel, of Wellborn, chaired the hearing
before a large crowd of citizens, including State Senator
elected officials from all branches of gov- Nancy Argenziano
ernment who were on hand to as for sup-
port for projects they're hoping to get funded during the session,
while others just wanted the two elected officials to hear about
matters that concern them.
Concerns ranged from securing a new school for Suwannee
County, to giving state employees better raises, supporting veter-
ans, working on the Medicaid funding for-
mula, helping to get the prison for Suwan-
nee County funded and also assisting to get
a sewer plant for Wellborn so Wellborn
could provide sewer and water to the prison
_ and to helping nursing homes and not al-
. lowing the Florida Department of Correc-
tions (FDOC) to make employee changes
that would take away high-risk retirement
for many employees who work with the Pa-
role and Probation units.

Bush applauds new


tax relief for Floridians
Governor Jeb Bush recently applaud-
ed the implementation of a new federal
ta i law\ that allows Floridians to deduct
state sales ta\ on federal income ta. re-
S.. turns. Benefiting residents of Florida
and six other states without state per-
.... sonal income tax, the 2004 American
Jobs Creation Act, endorsed by Gover-
nor Bush. authorizes the sales taxL relief
as an added option for taxpayers itemiz-
Gov. Jeb Bush ing deductions.
"This new law extends to Floridians
the same tax benefits long enjoyed by residents of states that
tax personal income;" said Governor Bush. "Allowing resi-
dents to deduct state sales taxes on federal returns w\ill put
more money back into the pockets of hard-working families."
Americans in most states have long been able to deduct
state income taxes from their federally-taxable income when
calculating how much of their earnings are subject to federal
income tax. Since Florida and six other states -- Alaska,

FDLE warns of Tsunami

e-mail scams


The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement is warning
citizens to beware of one of
the latest e-mail phishing
scams, this one using the
Asian tsunami tragedy as a
ploy to bilk people out of
monetary donations and steal
their identity in the process.
Phishing scam e-mails are
designed to trick the recipients
into disclosing personal infor-
mation authentication data
such as account usemames,
passwords, credit card num-
bers, social security numbers,
and home addresses. Most of


these e-mails look official and
as a result, recipients often re-
spond to them, resulting in fi-
nancial losses, identity. theft,
and other fraudulent activity.
Recent news reports indi-
cate thlat phinhiig e-mails i'ima\"
be circulating which attempt
to exploit people's concerns

to be a charitable relief fund.

injured in a truck and mini van crash at about 12:12 p.m. Jan. 11 at the intersection of CR 349 and 101st Street (Fletcher Road).
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the pickup truck, driven by Joseph A. Johnson, 19, of Durante, ran the stop sign at 101st
Street, and collided with the minivan, driven by Archie J. Thornton Jr., 60, of O'Brien. Both Johnson and a 13-year-old boy in his
truck were ejected, and his truck overturned. The minivan, also overtuned, trapping Thornton inside the minivan. Thornton was tak-

When his father passed away
from emphysema in 1980, it
was Joe and his mother who
kept the business going.
"If it wasn't for Joe, I would

Phillips also admits, "We

get along. If we need help or
run out of something, we all

it should be!" Phillips states
there is enough business for
everybody.
"Things have changed quite
a bit since we first began in this
business. Phillips recalls, "To
alter a pair of pants used to cost
only 35 cents, it was $1 for
suits, $5 for a box of coat hang-

only $15 for a whole gallon.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Dear Editor:
This is the beginning of another year that alcohol does
not control my life, and does not produce the problems it
once did.
I am 49 years old. Alcohol took two houses, four cars,
three jobs, my wife and children and friends. It almost took
my life several times in the past 30 years.
Tried to stop drinking myself several dozen times, but I
could only stop for a week or two or maybe a month. Then
I'd take a drink and it would start all over again. One drink
led to another. I could not have just one drink. I could not
control my drinking. I was addicted. I was sick and tired of
being sick and tired. My health and relationships were fail-
ing. I wanted to quit before it killed me. I wanted out.
Then I found Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) and found a
new freedom without alcohol. A new way of living. No
more fear or depression'. Peace and happiness were now
mine.
I recently went through the loss of a dear friend which
was the hardest trial of my life. I did not drink. I felt a great
loss but got through it without alcohol. When I drank to try
to get rid of the pain, afterwards I had more pain and more
problems. Alcohol caused many of my problems, and hurt
many relationships.
I no longer cause pain for others and my loved ones, be-
cause alcohol is no longer a part of my life.
Thank you A.A. You saved my life!

COMMENTARY

A simple formula for small-business growth


I


If there is one character trait
that stands out among America's
entrepreneurs, it is optimism.
Starting a small business de-
mands more than a desire to con-
trol one's destiny and a willing-
ness to take risks, it calls for a
positive outlook.
When the NFIB Small Busi-
ness Economic Trends survey BY JACK FARIS
was tallied in December, the op-
timism index among small firms soared four points to tie
a 30-year-old record. What sparked that upbeat report? Ex-
pectations of good times ahead.
With all the challenges facing the nation, there is no bet-
ter time to sweep away obstacles that prevent existing
small businesses from growing and new ones from start-
ing, and thus creating more jobs. That is the message small
business is delivering to Capitol Hill as the 109th Con-
gress begins to craft its legislative agenda.
It's just common sense. To raise the optimism of small-
business owners and those who want to start a business,
the formula for success is simple: subtract the complex tax
code, excessive regulations and frivolous lawsuits and add
affordable health care.
For nearly two decades, taxes have ranked among the
top concerns of small-business owners. According to The
Tax Foundation, the total effective tax rate in 2003 - which
encompasses the total tax burden from all levels of gov-
ernment - was more than 28.5 percent, a figure higher than
at any time during World War II. Taxes on the average
household are now greater than the cost of food, clothing,
shelter and transportation combined.
Unlike the nation's confusing tax code, the plea from
small-business owners is quite uncomplicated. Plainly
stated, they want Congress to simplify the code and reduce
taxes.
Among the greatest burdens on small firms is that of
having to decipher and comply with the current tax laws,
which potentially challenge owners with 200 different re-


OPINION

Floridians: This year resolve to save more


By Tom Gallagher
Florida's Chief Financial Officer
We all aim to\ save, but many of us just don't follow
through on our good intentions. I encourage Floridians to
make 2005 the.year that they resolve to thoroughly review,
their finances and find ways to save more money;.Small
measures can make a big difference in your financial mat-
ters. Don't leave your finances to chance.
Here are a few ways to save money and reduce the like-
lihood of identity-theft in 2005:
* Lower the cost of your outstanding liabilities.
Review interest rates on all of your credit cards and
loans. Do research to see if you are paying a higher rate
than the current average. If you are, contact your creditors
and negotiate a new rate.
* Make additional monthly payments.
If you decide to keep your current credit card debts or
mortgage loan, consider making affordable pre-payments.
Using a mortgage loan as an example, sending in $25 ex-
tra a month can save you thousands of dollars in interest
and shave years off of the term of your loan.
* Review your bank account to determine if it is the best
product for you.
Review your monthly bank statement to see exactly
what fees you paid during the last billing cycle. You may


find you can save money by simply changing from one
type of account to another or by consolidating multiple ac-
counts into one.
* Pay bills on-line.
, Today, "most major businesses and service providers, in-
cludingutilities and phone companies, have websites for
their customers. With the cost of a postage stamp now at
37 cents, it may be worth your while to pay recurring debts
over the net.
* Change your computer passwords.
With identity theft now the number-one fraud in the
country, you can't be too careful when it comes to safe-
guarding computer passwords and personal information.
Most of us don't change our passwords frequently enough..
Take the time to change all of your passwords.
* Check Your Credit Report.
Make it a New Year's resolution to check your credit re-
ports on a. frequent basis and address any discrepancies or
errors. By correcting any errors, you may save money on
loans and other types of credit.
The Department of Financial Services has launched a
statewide campaign to promote financial literacy in Flori-
da among all age groups. For information on the campaign

quirements. It's no wonder that
more than eight-of-10 small-busi-
ness owners are forced to rely on
professional tax practitioners to
prepare their tax returns - a costly
and time-consuming practice.
Optimism, hence small-business
creation and growth, can also be
sparked if Congress takes meaning-
S j ful steps to reduce the load of ex-
cessive regulation and intrusive
laws. Instead of devoting all their time to satisfying cus-
tomers, these entrepreneurs spend an inordinate amount of
their daily schedules grappling with unclear and confusing
government instructions, a steadily growing mountain of
paperwork and duplicate information requests.
That small-business owners have any optimism at all is
somewhat amazing when faced with the fact that lawsuit
filings have tripled in the past 30 years. Frivolous lawsuits
and out-of-control, lottery-sized damage awards are
steadily raising the threat to small firms. Within just the
past five years, more than one-tenth of owners have been
sued or threatened with liability litigation.
Do you want to see small-business growth and job cre-
ation take off? Congress can make it happen.by passing
legislation to allow associations to offer health insurance
to their small-business members; expand options for indi-
viduals to buy their own insurance; oppose health-care
mandates and permit the self-employed to deduct health-
care costs.
It's a simple formula: optimism plus entrepreneurship
equals small-business growth.

of Independent Business), the nation's largest small-busi-
ness advocacy group. A non-profit, non-partisan organiza-
tion founded in 1943, NFIB represents the consensus views

Children'SEar Infections and Antibiotics
In the US, children experience an estimated 12 million ear infections each
year. Most occur in children under the age of 5 years, and most involve at
least one visit to a doctor's office. Pediatricians usually divide middle ear
infections into two groups, acute otitis media and otitis media with effusion
(meaning there is fluid present in the middle ear that usually contains
bacteria). In many instances antibiotics such as amoxicillin, erythromycin,
and combination products such as Septra and Pediazole are prescribed. For
the most part antibiotics kill organisms that cause ear infections and help
such infections heal better than if they were not prescribed.
Antibiotic use for-ear infections increarsd considerably in recent years.
However, physicians became aware of the problem of antibiotic resistance
(organisms causing the infection became resistant to the effect of the
antibiotic). Many; are now being cautious in prescribing these and other
antibiotics to children. In the mid 1990s the American Academy of Pediatrics
published guidelines for the treatment of ear infections with effusion in
children. These guidelines called for a more cautious approach such as
observation (a watch and wait approach) or prescribing antibiotics in
otherwise healthy children from I to 3 years old with this type of ear
infection. 133235JRS-F

Terry Lowe admits he is
still catching up from the
Christmas/New. Year's
whirl. Me, too. Many of us
are in the dust settling phase
of holidaying. We are grate-
ful to anticipate recognizing
the goodness of ordinary life
in our hometown again.
Friends and neighbors met
at the January Blueberry
Pancake Breakfast Saturday.
Terry Lowe and family have
done lots of work beautify-
ing both inside and outside
the home where Blake and
Virginia Lowe lived for
many years. We lose track of
the sequence of home im-
provements going on in our
hometown, but Jack Gaylord
thinks maybe it's contagious
and that is a good thing. He
and Linda gave newness of
life to the old Martha and
Winston Johnson home
place next door to Lowes.
That was when the Gaylords
purchased it so as to move
from outlying acreage on
CR 49 into downtown Well-
born. Pasco and Loretta
Jarvis' home on 6th Avenue
sports a forest green roof
and shutters contrasting
with the sparkly white house
newness. When you add the
hundreds of coriopsis in
their season it is pure joy to
behold across the street
from the WCA Community
Center. Then, there is Lyn-
wood Brown's on C-10 and


down by the curve of C-10
Christine, Whitmore's. All
these and probably many
more local homes start this
new year with a new look.
Enjoy! Dr. Terri Hardee ate
her cereal at home on Blue-
berry Breakfast Saturday but
picked up. a carry-out to
make it a Blueberry Lunch
Saturday instead. Betsy
Billups opted for a half
stack at breakfast and the
rest at lunch. "Microwave
does wonders," 'says she.
Wellborn Methodist Pastor
Tim Plant and son Alex were
seen at the breakfast and just
missed meeting newly or-
dained the Rev. Judith
Wilkinson and her husband
Carl. The Wilkinsons and
Ron Peabbles make a
singing trio who call them-
selves "Sweet Mercy." They
minister in song at nursing
homes locally and to people
in the Suwannee County
jail. They are a swell addi-
tion to Wellborn's Bernice
and Jack Sobscyk and Mari-
lyn Kranz Great Harvest
ministry team at the jail
Wednesday. "Sweet Mer-
cy" wants you to know they
feel led, to expand appear-
ances and therefore they are
open to invitation to give a
program or be part of one
you may be planning. FYI

Suwannee River Woman's Club


celebrates 50 years of service


By Tracy Brantley
The Suwannee River
Woman's Club (SRWC), for-
merly the Live Oak Junior
Woman's Club, celebrated 50
years of service to Suwannee
County in 2004. The SRWC is
a non-profit organization es-
tablished in 1954. Through
various fund-raisers and the
hard work of its members, the
SRWC gives generously of
their time and donations to the
local community.
The SRWC sponsors the an-
nual Miss and Little Miss
Suwannee Valley Pageant,


which produces the bulk of the
funds raised by the club, as
well as many other fund-rais-
ers and donations given by lo-
cal businesses and individuals.
The SRWC gives back to
the community in many ways.
Four scholarships are awarded
annually, including the winner
and first runner up of the
pageant; an art scholarship, as
well as, an academic scholar-
ship. The club also helps to
sponsor a young woman to at-
tend Florida Girls State each
year, and gives generously to
local schools, including dona-


A"u


tions given to APT to help pur-
chase extra supplies for the
children of our community.
The SRWC donates food
and gifts to families in need
during the holidays. With the
help of the children's dona-
tions of canned goods, from
the primary and elementary
schools, the club was able to
stuff and wrap more than 40,
boxes of food for families in
need at Thanksgiving in 2004.
Also, with the help of the Elks
Lodge, the club was able to
purchase food and gifts for
more than 15 families in need
for Christmas in 2004. These
are just a few of the donations
given annually. The SRWC
gave in excess of $10,000 in
donations this past year alone.
The SRWC would like to
give a special thanks to its
members, local businesses, or-
ganizations and individuals
that help with these projects
throughout the year. The kind-
ness and gratitude that you
have shown throughout the
past 50 years is what has made
this club what it is today, and
what makes this community
such a special place to live.
The SRWC will be holding
a membership drive in Febru-
ary of 2005 and would wel-
come any woman who would
like to attend and become a
part of this organization.
Please watch the Suwannee
Democrat for further details
on the upcoming event.


The weather has been just
perfect! It's like spring al-
ready, but we who live in
North Florida know it's only
for a short time... it will get
cold again, even if for only a
short time, so don't rush out
and start putting seeds in the
ground or warm-weather
plants in the ground. How-
ever, it's a good time to
clean out the flower beds,
get the garden site ready and
plant trees, shrubs and other
such types of plants that
won't be harmed by further
cold weather. So many peo-
ple wait until spring really
does get here to plant new
,shrubs and trees, which is
actually not the best time,
but it's OK for then. Now,
they'll have a chance to get
adjusted to their new home
before the really hot weather
begins and will be hardy.
Trim .back the roses, any-
thing else that's in need,
make mulch piles (or contin-
ue) and continue the fight
against dollar weed. If you
get everything ready now,
when those beautiful plants
are ready at the nurseries in
the spring, all you have to do
is go pick out what you want
and put them in the ground
or the pots. If you don't put
in a little time now, you'll
never be ready in time! Re-
member, don't fertilize just
yet and DO NOT TRIM
BACK YOUR AZALEAS
YET! Wait until after they
bloom, and then go for
it...trim or move them if you
like before it gets hot weath-
er. You're not supposed to
trim them after July 4 either

Local H & R Block own-

title after passing a two-day,
four part exam and passing
all categories.

for the past 10 years and pri-

parer, said she's always

wanted to take the exam. "I
have always wanted to take
the enrolled agent examina-
tion offered by the Internal
Revenue Service," she said.
"The exam is given in four
parts, taking two days, each
part having a time limit of
three hours." And, that's just
what she did Sept. 22-23 in
Jacksonville.
An enrolled agent is one of
three professionals who are
allowed to practice before
the IRS. The other two are
CPA and attorneys, Howard
said. "Although the name en-
rolled agent is not yet a
household name, it has dras-'
tically increased in the popu-
larity," Howard stated.


Howard said the public is fi-
nally being educated about
the qualifications of an en-
rolled agent and in the near
future,, people will rely more
,on the assistance of an en-
rolled agent than on any oth-
er professional to assist them
with their tax matters.
After taking the exam,
Howard waited several
weeks before she learned she
had passed all four parts of
the exam. "The title df
"E.A." is a status I feel will
give all our clients a little
more security knowing the H
& R Block office in Live
Oak has one now," Howard
said of her new title.
Howard said that in addi-


I nwhnaSaSei


its 50th year in busine
tion to her gaining the "E.A." Block's 50th anniversa
title, she feels her office has it continue to be' a,
a wealth of experience and company," Howard
training to serve the public, proudly. "Our mission
as evidenced by 36-year tax help our clients achieve
veteran Mr. Marion White financial objectives' by
who is employed with her of- ing as' their tax and fin
fice, as well as herself. partner," she added. "M


"This year is H & R


very client focused."


Now that I've got that over
with, I hope everyone is
noticing how the work
downtown in Live Oak is
coming with the street reno-
vation project. The west side
of Ohio is practically done
with sidewalks in, beautiful
street lights in and shrubs
planted. I fear we will have
rocks everywhere except
where they were placed
around the shrubs, but, that's
ar by something we'll have to
h such watch for. I think it looks so

If you weren't at the
Suwannee/Baker Bulldog
basketball game Friday
night, you missed the best
game of the year:
Suwannee came out slow
and Baker had the Dogs'
down by 12 points, 20-32, at
the half. Things looked bad
in Live Oak., But the Dogs'
superior conditioning was
the name of the game in the
second half. The Dogs scored
26 points in the third period
and held Baker to 15. The
boys from Baker wore out
trying to keep up with the
Dogs.
In the final quarter, Baker
tried to make a comeback,
tying the game several times.
At one point the Dogs had
Baker down by 10. But Bak-
er closed to within two in the
last seconds and the fans
held their breath. Baker
fouled Jevon Smith, who
missed both free throws. But
Suwannee got the rebound
and Baker fouled Nate Her-'
ring, who put away both free
throws.

Suwannee wrestlers slam Godby in opener


Janet Schrader-Seccafico
Democrat Reporter
Suwannee wrestling'opened
with a huge win against the
Godby team. The final team
score was 57-17. Godby scored
six of their 17 points because
Suwannee had an open weight
class. Several Suwannee
wrestlers "wrestled up." That
means they wrestled in classes
that were heavier weights from
their actual weight.
Preston Hart wrestled up
from 152 to the 170 weight
class. That was the most dra-
matic difference. Heavy weight
Suwannee wrestler Kris Kerns
wrestled a Godby heavy weight
that had to weigh at the mini-
mum 50 pounds more 'than
Kerns. Both these Suwannee
wrestlers pinned their man to
the cheers of the large crowd in
attendance.
Only three Suwannee
wrestlers lost their matches.


Greg Jones did a great job
fighting off a Godby opponent
that was a state qualifier in
2004. Caleb Sanders showed
his great conditioning by com-
ing back from a deficit in
points at the end of the match.
But Sanders still lost 5-8. Justin
Mowls fought a fairly evenly
matched , opponent until the
last, receiving points for a great
take down. .But Mowls lost on
. points in the end 4-12.
The meet began with Jones
in the 145 weight class. Jones
lost 1-11.
Next up for Suwannee was
Lee Laxton in the 152 weight
class. Laxton pinned his man in
the first round.
Nate Smith was unopposed
in the 160 weight class which
added six points to the Suwan-
nee team score. After three
matches, Suwannee was 'up 18-
4.
Hart wrestled next in the 171

Danny Hales
Special to the Democrat
On Dec. 28th 'Suwannee
and seven other high school
teams began play in the Co-
lumbia Ft. White Christmas
Tournament. Suwannee's
first match was with Newber-
ry High. Newberry brought
unpleasant memories to the
Suwannee team; as in last
years game Reggie Johnson
suffered a severe leg injury
due to the reckless play of the
Newberry squad.
The match began on a clear
warm afternoon at the Colum-
bia Youth Soccer Association
fields. Play was brisk by
both squads. Early in the
game Billy Moran moved the
ball forward from midfield
and passed to an advancing
J.D. Hales. Hales quickly
crossed to the breaking Reg-
gie Johnson, who easily
punched a shot into the right


in Lake City
side of the net for Suwannee's
first score.
Both teams moved the ball
but not until midway of the
first half was another score
made.. At that point Suwan-
nee keeper Nathan Moses
made a strong punt that car-
ried past midfield. Reggie
Johnson headed the ball for-
ward to a speeding Cullen
Boggus, who drove the ball
toward the keeper and firmly
struck Suwannee's second
goal into the far side of the
net.
Newberry answered very
quickly. On the following
kick off, a Newberry player
on the left side received a pass
and successfully slipped a
shot behind the Suwannee
keeper. With 10 minutes re-
maining in the half, Newberry
was awarded a penalty kick
after a throw-in resulted in a
foul near the goal. The New-

Suwannee was up by four
with 13 seconds left to play.
Baker missed their last op-
portunity, Quaramos Ross
got the rebound and Suwan-
nee scored. The final score
was 65-59 Dogs, and what a
game it was.
Starters for the Baker
game were Quaramos Ross,
Nate Herring, Mario
Hawthorne, Jevon Smith and
Philip Clark. Baker came out
running and gunning and
blew Suwannee's doors off.
The Dogs didn't score until
the final two minutes of the
first period. Baker had the
Dogs down 2-14 at the end
of one period of play.
But the Dogs began to hit
their stride in the second pe-
riod. Quaramos Ross led the
charge as the Dogs fought
back. Baker was dominating
the rebounding situation, but
Clark finally found some


space and snagged some re-
bounds. Hawthorne began
nailing his outside shots, hit-
ting two three-pointers in
the second period. The Dogs
were able to keep pace in the
second, losing no ground but


gaining none
either. At the
end of the
half, the
Dogs were
still down by
12, 20-32.
The Bull-
dogs superior
conditioning
began to
show in the
third. The
Dogs came
out of the


points in the first moments
of the third period. The Dogs
closed to within one' point
and then Baker moved
ahead. The score was 34-41
with 3:38 left in the third.

ing. This is exactly what the
Bulldogs did. Suwannee

point goal and Ross. hit a
three-pointer. Suwannee
went ahead in the last sec-
onds of the third 45-43.
Baker tried to hang on in
the fourth, but it was plain
the 'boys from Baker were


pooped while Suwannee still
had plenty of gas. Baker's
sharp shooters even began
missing free throws. After
three unanswered baskets by
the Dogs in the early min-
utes of the fourth, the Dogs
surged ahead by
seven.

berry player was successful
on the kick, tying the score 2-
2. Suwannee wasted no
time in responding to the tie
game. Corey Bridges settled
the ball near midfield and sent
a pass forward to J.D. Hales.
Hales broke free of his man
and sped to the goal. The
keeper came out and Hales
easily booted Suwanneeis
third goal into the lower right
hand corner of the empty net.
The 3-2 score held up as the.
half ended.
Play resumed in the second
half with Suwannee advanc-
ing frequently but not scor-
ing. Ten minutes into the half
however Newberry was again
awarded a penalty kick after
the seemingly untouched
Newberry player fell to the
turf in the box. The second
penalty kick was booted in to
tie the score.at 3-3.
Once again Suwannee ral-
lied quickly. Reggie Johnson
took a corner kick and re-
ceived an assist as Billy
Moran gathered Johnson's
kick and angled in Suwan-
nee's fourth and final goal of
the day. Suwannee then ad-
vanced on its 4-3 victory to
play the winner of the Ft.
White/Arnold High match.
Suwannee's second game
was in the morning on Dec.
29th against Pensacola
Arnold.
The Suwannee v. Arnold
game proved to be a defen-
sive test for both squads.
Neither team was able to
mount many serious threats,


as both defenses continually
thwarted offensive efforts.
Midway through the second
half Suwannee finally broke
through. J. D. Hales, who en-
tered the game after sitting
with an injury for the first
half, sent a ball up field, split-
ting two defenders, to fellow
forward Billy Moran. Moran
advanced on the breakaway
and deftly booted in Suwan-
nee's lone goal of the match.
Arnold was never able to pose
a serious threat and the game
ended in a victory for Suwan-
nee on the single Moran goal.
The Bulldogs advanced to the
finals to play neighboring ri-
val Columbia County, which
had also won both of its
matches.
The finals match began at 4
p.m. later that day, with a
good crowd assembled to
support both teams from Lake
City and Live Oak. Suwan-
nee had played Columbia on
Columbia's field only a few
weeks earlier in regular sea-
son play, and had suffered a
4-0 loss. Coach Johnson was
disappointed in that loss and
looked forward to a rematch.
Unfortunately Columbia
again seemed to be in control.
Although Suwannee had ad-
vances they were unable to
capitalize in the first half.
Columbia however was able
to score midway through the
first half on a throw in that
was deflected into the top of
the net. Suwannee continued
to have several good shots on
goal stopped by the CHS
keeper. Just prior to the half
Columbia managed once


again to score and took a 2-0
lead into halftime.
That score held up in the
second half as Suwannee and
Columbia continued to seek
goals to no avail. With about
20 minutes left in the game,
Columbia advanced up the
left side for a goal, taking a
commanding 3-0 lead. The
Bulldogs however didn't quit.
The Suwannee fans urged
them on and even though
down three goals, their play
seemed to rally following Co-
lumbia's third goal. With
only 15 minutes remaining in
the match, Will Posey sent a
long ball to the open field.
Reggie Johnson gathered the
pass, cut behind the Columbia
defender and booted a long
arching shot over the keeper
to finally score for Suwannee.
The goal seemed to further in-
vigorate the Suwannee fans
and players, even though time
was running out.
The energized Suwannee
team continued its aggressive
play. J.D. Hales, only min-
utes following Johnsonis
goal, took the ball at midfield
and advanced up the left side-
line. He broke free from the
Columbia defender and struck
a long shot. A Columbia de-
fender tried to deflect the ball
just in front of the goal, but
the shot glanced off of him
and settled into the net for
Suwanneeis second score.
The remaining few minutes
saw several advances by the
Suwannee squad and a differ-
ent looking Columbia effort,
as they seemed to be just
waiting for the end of the


game. The last minutes saw a
strong shot by Hales just miss
the right side of the net, a
Moran advance and strong
kick collected by the keeper,
and finally a last second shot
by Reggie Johnson that was
deflected by the Columbia
keeper. Normally that would
result in a corner kick, but the


officials cut the play short and
ruled that the game was over.
The final score of 3-2 gave
Columbia County the cham-
pionship. Following the
match Suwannee was present-
ed with the runner-up trophy.
From Suwannee, Billy Moran
and Miguel Rodriquez were
both named to the All-Tour-


nament Team. Coach John-
son, following the tourna-
ment, was pleased with the
two days of play overall. He
still is looking for more con-
sistency in effort and intensi-
ty from his team, and it will
really be needed as they ap-
proach a demanding January
schedule.

system, a static vat solids separator,
a 4.7 million gallon HDPE plastic lined waste
storage pond and 530 acres for wastewater irri-
gation. The wastewater system is designed to
contain a 25-year 24-hour storm and 14 days
of waste storage, based on a 4.3 acre produc-
tion area. Clean water from roof run-off is di-
verted away from the waste collection system.
The treatment system is designed as follows:
The wastewater is directed to the sand separa-
tion system for the collection of sand for reuse
in the freestall barns. From the sand separator
the wastewater flows into the static vat solids
separator. Wastewater then flows to the waste
storage pond. Wastewater from the final treat-
ment pond will be pumped to 9 sprayfields, to-
taling 530 acres, for use as irrigation water.
Solids re-moved from the solids separator will
be spread on forage fields onsite or hauled off-
site for land application at agronomic rates. The
facility is lo-cated at latitude 30�19'27" N, longi-
tude 83�5'53" W on 16540 68th Place, Live

Q: When should a child first visit a
dentist?
A: The American Dental Association
recommends a visit to the dentist within
six months of the eruption of a baby's
first tooth, but no later than the child's
first birthday. On that first visit the
dentist will examine the child's mouth,
teeth and gums and explain to the
parents how to effectively clean and
care for the child's mouth. The dentist
also be able to evaluate the impact of
any habits the child may have
developed, like thumb sucking. The
dentist will also be able to recommend
what sort of fluoride needs the baby
may have. The dentist will also
recommend 3 schedule for dental visits

"The Old Farmer's Almanac Gardener's Companion AII-Seasons Garden Guide"

- Offering all-time favorites for all year long -


The editors of "The OldI
Farmer's Almanac" have
chosen, the cream of the crop,
from the archives of th(e
"Gardener's Companion" arid
compiled them together to of-
fer the best of the best in; gar-
denirig guidance for all four
seasons.
Hitting store shelves on
Jan.' 18, "The Old Farmer's
Almanac Gardener's Com-
panion All-Seasons Garden
'Guide" features a landscape
of useful tips, trends, and in-
formation to keep you in-
spired throughout spring,
summer, and autumn.
Inside this stunning, full-
color publication, discover


how.to:
Improve your landscape
* Create miniature plots -
Tight on space? Grow up in-
stead of out with cucumbers,
pole beans, and squash on lat-
tices using just a square foot
of ground space.
* Combine edibles and or-
namentals - Fill border gar-
dens with brightly colored
fruit, herbs, and. vegetables
such as blueberries, sage, and
peppers to add interesting
shades and, flavor.
* Buy dirt - Soil is a pre-
cious commodity (it takes
500 years for nature to make
an inch of it!). Get top-notch
dirt by making sure you know


where the soil comes from
and what's in it. When you
bring your new.topsoil home,
be sure to mix it with your ex-
isting soil rather than just
spread it on top.
* Grow a garden room - Se-
lect vines to create a "room"
by growing flowering parti-
tions or blooming walls. Fire-
works of color can continue
all season long by planting a
variety of climbing plants.
Enjoy color throughout the
season
* Dazzle with dahlias -
Give your garden an extra
burst of color late in the sea-
son with dahlias. These in-
credible beauties, with some
varieties modeling hundreds
of petals on each flower, pre-
fer a. slightly cooler tempera-
tures and do best in late Au-
gust to September.
* Have fun with hydrangeas
- You'll find the tips and tech-
niques in this detailed article
a great help in adding the col-
or and charm of hydrangeas
to your garden space - or in
improving the hydrangeas
you already have. These irre-
sistible blooms will catch
everyone's eye!
Plant foods you love to eat
* Start seeds successfully -
Choose seeds carefully based
on your climate and plant
them indoors, keeping in
mind that they'll, need to
slowly adapt to life outdoors
before being transplanted.
Before' plopping seeds or
seedlings into the ground, test
your soil to see if it's ready
for planting. (Hint: When

good indication of healthy

* Produce succulent straw-
berries - Build a bed in an
area with direct sunlight and
enough. space to -stagger "or
rotate plants (strawberry
plants yield only for two to
three years) so that you'll
have a bountiful harvest each
year. Deter pests by spread-
ing sand or crushed eggshells
around plants and keep birds
away with balloons or Mylar
tape.
* Grow delectable and


healthy heirloom vegetables -
Plant a wide assortment of
heirlooms to determine
-which variety will grow best
in your region and at the end
of the season,. save the seeds
from your successes to use
year after year.
* the tropics home - Save
the seeds, pits, or crowns
from your favorite fruit, such
as oranges, mangoes, or
pineapple, and then grow
warm-weather treats indoors
to be enjoyed all year long.'

Fast, facts on farming today


Want to learn more about
farming and gain a better under-
standing and appreciation of
the vital .role agriculture
plays in your daily life? The
following are some "fast
facts" to help you out. They
are taken from "Farm Facts," a
booklet produced by the Ameri-
can Farm Bureau Federation,
the world's largest voluntary or-
ganization of farmers and ranch-
ers.
- There are 2.16 million farms
dotting America's rural land-
scape. About 99 percent of U.S.
farms are operated by individu-
als, family partnerships or fami-
ly corporations.
� In 2001, $53 billion worth of
American agricultural products
were exported around the world.
The United States sells more


food
and fiber to world markets than
it imports.
- More than half of America's
agricultural producers intention-
ally provide habitat for wildlife.
Deer, moose, fowl and other
species have shown significant
population increases during the
past several years.
. -Modem farming techniques
such as biotechnology, global
positioning satellites and conser-
vation tillage have enabled

America's farmers and ranchers
to produce more food on fewer
acres.
� More than 24 million
American workers (17 per-
cent of the total U.S. work-
force) produce, process and
sell the nation's food and fiber.
* Farmers and ranchers re-
ceive 19 cents of every dollar
spent on food at home and away
from home. The rest goes to
wages and materials for produc-
tion, processing, marketing,
transportation and distribution.
In 1980, farmers and ranchers
received 31 cents.
� U.S. farm policy under the
'2002 farm program costs each
American 4.4 cents per meal and
accounts for little more than
one-half of 1 percent of the U.S.
budget.
* Ethanol and biodiesel fuels
made from com, soybeans and
other crops benefit the environ-
Sment by promoting energy secu-
rity.
* America's farmers and
ranchers bring a variety of edu-
cational experiences to their
agriculture businesses. For ex-
ample, most farmers and ranch-
ers have been trained and certi-
fied in the use of agricultural
chemicals.
� Technology is increasingly
used on today's farms and ranch-
es. USDA statistics show that 43
percent of U.S. farms have Inter-
net access and 55 percent have
general access to computers. A
survey of young farmers and
ranchers shows that nearly 87
percent use a computer and
more than three-quarters have
access to the Internet.

FAMILY FEATURES EDITORIAL SYNDICATE

cooking to freshen up
winter meals? Think
Florida citrus. There's
no better way to add a
healthy zip to family
dinners than with the sweet, juicy
taste of citrus.
Fresh Florida citrus delivers a
powerful nutritional punch in a deli-
cious package. Not only are oranges
and grapefruit a fat-free treat, but
studies show the concentration of
nutrients in citrus may help reduce
the risk of heart disease
and some forms of cancer. Oranges
and grapefruit also provide more
than a full day's supply of vitamin
C, a powerful antioxidant that helps
boost the immune system.
Oranges and grapefruit have ver-
satile culinary uses, and their juicy
goodness enlivens many a sweet or
savory recipe. Try dressing up
broiled or poached fish with a de-
lightfully delicate fruit sauce made
of fresh Florida orange sections,
grapes and lemon-pepper seasoning.
You also can create a festive side
dish by drizzling a platter of ruby
red grapefruit and orange sections
with a luscious (and fat-free!) rasp-
berry sauce.
Fresh-squeezed citrus juice can re-
place the oils in salad dressings,
making them lighter and zestier. Up-
: , date your balsamic vinaigrette with a
blend of tangy orange juice, mixed
with grapefruit, oranges and other
winter fruits, and toss with fresh
greens for intense flavor. Use fresh-
squeezed grapefruit juice as a full-
bodied base for a zesty, fat-free
dressing that pairs well with grape-
fruit slices and black beans for a re-
freshing replacement to the standard
salad.
Chase away the winter blahs ...
take advantage of fresh Florida cit-
rus season and freshen up old
recipes. Who knew good health
could be so scrumptious?

Sectioning Sweetness
Orange and grapefruit sections add an easy elegance to any
recipe. Here's how to make them: First, remove peel and
hold fruit over a bowl to catch the juice. Next, cut between
one fruit section and the membrane, cutting to the center of the
fruit. Turn the knife and slide it up the other side of the section
next to the membrane. Repeat with remaining secuons.
