Susan K. Lamb.
Democrat Managing Editor
'It took a 3-2 vote Tuesday, Jan. 11 to move
forward on a plan that could bring a Wal-
Sg~reens drug store to Live Oak at the old
Kiuart site that has been vacant for years.
It was not an easy vote and left the council
president unhappy, and was not what Council
Attorney\ Ernie Sellers advised the Council to
- do. "You cannot vote to remove restrictions,"
Sellers said. "You wouldn't be doing this if
the developer didn't need it" he added. Sell-
ers said the project is not for a public pur-
pose, while Lake City Attorney Austin Peele,
attorney for. Columbia Investors, argued the
project is a public purpose.

"painted" newspaper coin racks


Janet Schrader-Seccafico'
Democrat Reporter
Look for four specially painted Suwannee Democrat coin racks
to be appearing in the neighborhoods ofSui annee County soon.
Four Suwannee County artists painted scenes of the county onto
the sides of the coin racks. Churches, barns and greenery were
painted in loving detail onto the sides of the coin racks in oils.
John Rice, local award-winning artist painted one. Eileen Bo\.
newly elected president of the Lihe Oak Artists' Guild painted one
along with Wally Reichert, the ne\ ly elected treasurer of the Li e
Oak Artists' Guild, and art student Connor
Billups. Dawn Strickland, last ear's
president of the Live Oak Artists'
Guild his a box on which she is ., - '
currently working.
The request for the special
newspaper coin racks came' '
from Suwannee Democrat
Publisher Myra Regan. Regan
said, "I wanted the newspa-
per's coin racks to be an asset
to the places they occupy. What
better way to make them an as-
set than to beautify them?
That's where these talented .
artists came in. They painted
beautiful scenes from this won-,
derful county we live in on the
coin racks, which are displayed
bfor all to see."
.The coin racks, were given a
base of white paint and delivered
to Rice at his studio and frame
shop in downtown Live Oak, the
Frame Shop aird Gallery former '
known as Lawson's Studios. From
there the coin racks went to the "
artists to paint .
There is a painted coin rack going to
the Live Oak Dairy Queen. Another \\ill


soon be in place at the offices of the SunIaimnee Democrat.
There will be, one at the Subway in near 1-10 on US 129 North.
The location of the final painted newspaper coin rack is still be-
ing decided.
Check out the beautiful artwork painted on the sides of these
newspaper coin racks soon and, of course; get yourself a copy of
the Suwannee Democrat while you're doing it.


Suwannee County should see showers ending in the
morning, then partly cloudy in the afternoon. Cooler
temperatures are returning. For up to the minute weath-

The matter came before the
City Council in December be-
cause the Florida Department
of Transportation had in-
formed the investment group
they. could not use the old
Kman site without providing
a new, safer entryway, accord-
ing to Ann New land, who is
providing architectural draw-
ings for the project. Newland
told the Council in December
that FDOT would not allow
the current entry lanes to be
used due to the traffic conges-
tion but wanted the,group to
find a way to extend
Piriewood Way across US 129
to make entry. 7
The only thing :standing in
the way of the extension is re-
moval of the restrictions on
the McMullen home and pur-
chasing the Jiffy :Store, both
have agreed to sell, according
to investors.
McMullen was present this
week. at the City Council
meeting and said she supports
'the project. McMullen said
she can't back out of her dri-
veway because of the traffic
on US 129. She said it's dan-
gerous and "if this. doesn't go
/through, I want you to fix my
red light!" McMullen said no
matter when she tries to back
out of her driveway on a red
light, there's always a green
light., allowing traffic to flow,
which doesn't allow heria safe
exit.
Paula McMillan, a resident
of Sherwood Forrest, whose
property and home were
flooded in the recent hurri-
canes, said s6e wants the wa-
ter problems in that area
solved, something Blake said
could happen if the project
goes through. McMillian,
however, said she wants the
residents of Sherwood Forest
to make the decision to re-
move the restrictions on Mc-
Mullen's property, not the city.
Another Sherwood Forrest
resident who lives near Mc-


Byrd's farm. -


Mullen, also spoke, saying
she supports the project and
thinks it will be great having
Walgreens right next door.
Allison Scott, who is a part
of Columbia Investors, told
the Council neither he nor the
other members of the group
ever planned for the project to
cause problems. "If it's the
wish that we go door to door,
we will do that," he told the
Council. "We're not Kmart
people from somewhere else,
we're right here. We're not try-
ing to force an issue,".he said.
Scott said later that as a resi-
dent of Live Oak, he is con-
cerned about doing the best
thing for his community with
the project and believes it will
benefit the public.
Blake said he has no prob-
lem with forcing the issue and
letting a judge decide whether
or not to remove the restric-
tions, some of which refer to
the color of a homeowner's
skin. This particular issue,
which Sellers said is not en-
forceable because of Supreme
Court rulings.
Boyette objected vehement-
ly to the vote, saying the
Council has never listened to
anyone in the past that came
asking to have deed restric-
tions lifted.
On: Thursday Scott said
upon the suggestions made by
cit. attorney Ernie Sellers, in
lieu of voluntary conveyance
or "friendly condemnation" as
approved by the council, the
developers plan to seek ap-
proval from the majority of
homeowners in Sherwood
Forrest. The developers are
preparing a document for ap-
proval by the majority of
homeowners in Sherwood
Forrest that will remove the
deed restrictions on this lot
only, Scott added.

Many people just drive up to
her door to see the donkeys af-
ter passing Byrd's 160 acres on
CR 49.
"They see the donkeys and
come in to have a look," Byrd
said. "Many of the kids that
come here have never seen a
donkey. When they find out
how\ sweet and gentle they are,
the, .want one."
Most of Byrd's current ba-

list of folks who are waiting.

OPINION

Greedy or ignorant
"The Dog and His Bone"
A is one of Aesop's many in-
1MVINORITY structive fables. It's about a
dog carrying a bone in his
VIEW mouth. As he was crossing a
footbridge over a stream
and happened to glance into
the water, he saw his own
reflection. Thinking it was
S another dog with a bigger
bone, the greedy dog
growled and said to himself,
"I'll get that bone, too."
When he opened his mouth
BY WALTER to take the bone, his own
WILLIAMS bone fell into the water,
� 2005 Creators Syndicate never to be seen again.
You say, "Williams, that's
a nice story; but what's the relevance?" Its relevance has to;
do with the myths and some of the discussion about what to'
do about our health-care problems. The recently published
"Miracle Cure," by Sally Pipes, president of the San Fran-
cisco-based Pacific Research Institute, exposes health-care
myths while explaining why the sometimes-touted Canadi-
an style health care isn't the answer. Myth: Uninsured indi-
viduals have no access to medical care. Fact: It turns out
that in 2004 uninsured Americans received $125 billion of
health care, of which $41 billion was provided totally free
of charge.
Myth: Skyrocketing prescription drugs are driving health-
care spending up. Fact: According to the Bureau of Labor
Statistics, as a whole, Americans spend about 1 percent of
theirincome on drugs. Seniors spend about 3 percent on
drugs, less than the amount they spend on entertainment.
Spending on drugs, as a percent of total health-care spend-
ing, was 10 percent in 1960. It's roughly the same today.
The fact of business is, pharmaceutical spending actually
lowers total health-care spending. It often replaces expen-
sive and invasive surgical procedures and the time spent in'
the hospital. For example, in a yearlong disease-manage-
ment program, Humana Hospitals studied 1,100 congestive
heart failure patients. While pharmaceutical costs increased
by 60 percent, the medications reduced hospital costs by 78
percent - a net savings of $9 million.
Among other myths exposed in -"Miracle Cure" is the
myth that our health-care problems derive from the fact that
we have a free-market health-care system. Little can be fur-
ther from the truth. The government has been the largest
participant in our health-care system since the 1960s. To-
day, -the government directly pays for 45 percent of health-
care spending. Government intervenes in. the form of tax
subsidies and costly regulations on private insurers. Regu-
lations imposed on medical practitioners are oppressive.
According to a study by PricewaterhouseCoopers, for every
four hours that a physician devotes to caring for a Medicare
patient, hospital administrators spend 30 minutes on
Medicare paperwork. For emergency room care, it's one
hour spent on paperwork per one hour spent caring for a pa-
tient. ,
Is Canada better? In her book, Sally Pipes reports the case
of 58-year-old Canadian Don Ceiniz, who noticed blood in,
his urine. It took three weeks to get his first test and anoth-
er month for an M RI, and treatment for his cancer didn't be-
gin until six months. later. According to the Vancouver,
'British Columbia-based Fraser Institute's yearly survey of
medical waiting times, Cerniz was-lucky: "The median wait
for an MRI across Canada was 12.6 weeks. Patients in
Prince Edward Island experienced the shortest wait for an
MRI .(six weeks),' while Newfoundland residents waited
longest (33.5 weeks)." Overall, Canada's total waiting time
between referral from a general practitioner to treatment av-
eraged about 18 weeks in 2004,, . .
Americans shouldn't imitate Aesop's dog by looking to
Canada's socialized medicine as a solution to our health-
care problems and lose what we have. A much smarter.
move is to repeal previous government-created "solutions"
that have marched us nearer to socialism in the provision of.

COMMENTARY


I hope everyone had an enjoy-
able holiday season. The city
looked really nice this year with (
all the neighborhood decorations.
Coliseum' Avenue did their usual
street light display. It, along with
the many other house decorations *
sure did make for a very enjoy-
able ride. I must also recognize
Mrs. J. L. "Kitty" McMullen, BY SONNY
Mrs. Christmas as she has been
designated some years ago by the city. .She had her beau-
tiful decorations up for everyone's enjoyment. Our com-
munity has enjoyed Ms. Kitty's decorations for many
years. When I was a boy, I can distinctly remember our
family riding by the McMullens and just sitting out front
gazing at the decorations. We did the same with our kids.
Thousands enjoyed the Spirit of the Suwannee's annual
light display again this year. The music park donated sev-
eral nights of their Suwannee Lights gate admissions to
various community service organizations this year. A big
THANK YOU goes out to everyone for their efforts in
brightening our holidays.
Our community's response to the needy was over-
whelming this year. I am aware of many instances where
churches, organizations and individuals opened their
hearts and pocketbooks to help make this holiday more en-
joyable for 'the less fortunate in our community. I desig-
nated Ashley Wildman as a "Christmas Hero" for forego-
ing her Christmas and sending presents to an Indian fami-
ly out West. Ashley was still able to enjoy her Christmas
because of the generosity of Bobby Corbett of Bobby Cor-
bett's Mobile Homes of Live Oak. I also wanted to recog-
nize employees at City Hall for supporting the gift tree
placed at City Hall by the Country Living 4-H Club. Just
about every tag was selected from the tree. Another big
THANK YOU goes out to you all for your generosity. Wq
are truly a caring community.
Another group of elected county officials were sworn in,
last week. Some of these public servants have held office
for so long it may be more appropriate to say that they
were inaugurated. The citizens of Suwannee County have,
been very lucky to have the caliber of officials that have
served us over the. years. They are recognized for their
dedicated service to our community. We at City Hall look
forward to working with. these dedicated servants in the
years to come. I was very impressed with the picture of
these officials in the Suwannee Democrat last week. It was
a very professional photograph. -


IAYOR'S
CORNER


A goodly number of private citi-
zens and public officials met with
our Legislative Delegation at City
Hall to heap praise on and ask for


their continued support in the up-
coming Legislative Session. Rep-
. ,resentative Stansel and Senator Ar-
genziano were very responsive to
the needs of Live Oak in the last
NOBLES session. They were instrumental in
getting the city a DEP appropria-
tion of $750,000 to go towards the construction of the new
sewer plant that has to be complete in 2007. We are very
appreciative of their help and we look forward to their
continued support in 2005.
'In the coming weeks of the Mayor's Comer, I will give
you a year end report of the activities of the various de-
partments of the city. I will start with the Live Oak Police
Department. The LOPD is one that is danged if you do and
darned if you don't. Some citizens comment that the po-
lice should be working more traffic and writing more cita-
tions for speeding. Then there are those that ask why they
are out there writing speeding tickets when they should be
performing more important duties. You can't have it both
ways, can you? The LOPD wrote over 1,820 reports on ac-
tivities they handled. They made 844 criminal investiga-
tions with 537 arrests. The LOPD investigated 437 traffic
accidents and processed 537 affidavits that were filed.
They also issued 1,102 citations for traffic violations. An-
imal control received 2,101 calls and impounded 664 ani-
mals. These statistics tell us that department was very busy
this. past year. Over the last two weeks the LOPD has
solved cases involving a rash of break-ins that has oc-
curred in the City. Chief Nolan McLeod gives the public
much of the credit for solving these cases through tips that
were received through the CRIME STOPPERS hot line.
Congratulations to Officer Derek Slaughter for being se-
lected as Officer of the Year. Animal Control Officer Sal-
ly Roman was chosen as Civilian Employee of the Year.
The citizens of Live Oak are extremely-lucky to have the
quality of law enforcement the Live Oak Police Depart-
ment offers.
The City of Live Oak will honor Dr. Martin Luther King
Jr. and the many social changes that his leadership brought
about. City Hall and other departments will be closed in
observance of his birthday. The annual parade will take
place Jan. 17 beginning at 10 a.m. in the morning. Don't
.forget to wear your seat belt as you travel to and from or
even if you ride in the parade.

however. The rest of the time, skin
should be protected against the sun's
ultraviolet rays, which bear down on
us in all seasons. Sunscreen use is.
especially important high up on the
ski slopes. Higher elevations and
exposure to reflective snow increase
the risk of sunburn and eventual sun
damage (wrinkles, premature aging,
"and skin cancer). A full-spectrum
sunscreen with a sun protection
factor (SPF) of at least 15 should be
used.
In addition to wearing sunscreen,

DOCK TALK
By: Damon Wooley
Walter Starling:
Poultry Farmer/
Bass Professional
Live Oak has been called
home by a number of profes-
sional athletes over the years.
Andra Davis (professional
football player), Jake Green
(baseball) and David Burch
(softball) just to name a few.
But because tournament bass
fishing is not often recognized
as a sport, I doubt if anyone
knows that Live Oak is also
:home to at least one profes-
sional bass fisherman.
Walter Starling was raised in
Suwannee County where his
family was involved in farming
and after graduating from
SSuwannee High in 1983 he
served a short stint in the Unit-
ed States Air Force before
opening his own automotive
repair, business in Longview,
Texas. While living and work-
ing in Texas, Starling was in-
vited to join a local bass club
where he was introduced to
tournament bass fishing.
In 1990 Starling purchased
his first bass boat and began
fishing local tournaments on
Texas' Lake of the Pines. It
only took Starling a couple of
years to realize that he may
have missed his calling in life.
By 1995 Walter Starling or
"Walt" as his fishing buddies
referred to him, was recog-,
nized as one of the most domi-
nant local tournament fisher-
men in Longview. Starling

Thursday night the Lady

Suwannee was able to put one in
When Ashley Harris scored 18
minutes into the game, giving
the Lady Dogs a 1-0 lead at half-

The second halfwould belong
to the Lady Dogs, who took
over the game and scored seven

game early with an 8-0 advan-

Friday the Lady Dogs trav-
eled to Perry to play Taylor

Five minutes later, Harris

later Debra Craig scored on an
indirect free kick that was just
out of the keeper's reach and
then Katherine Wilding scored
with a high, arcing kick off a
Kate Townsend long throw-in.
Jenna Jordan ended the scoring
in the first half when she scored
the fifth goal for SHS. Brook

BIRDIES AND BOGEYS
Super shot of'04
Phil Mickelson's 18-foot putt for
birdie on the 72nd hole of the Mas-
ters, to win by one stroke over Ernie
Els, was the super shot of 2004. It
completed a back nine of 31, it was
Mickelson's fifth birdie in seven
holes, and it got rid of the "best play-
er to never win a major" label that
Mickelson had carried for years. For
added drama, the putt even teetered
on the left edge before curling in.
"One-putt iltt"
In the category of "it couldn't have
happened to a nicer guy" is the new-
found fame of Stan Utley, tour player
and short-game guru.
Utley, never a big winner on tour, is
becoming a sought-after putting and
chipping instructor. He holds the
record for putts for nine holes in a
PGA Tour event with 6, and led the
tour in the putts-per-round category
in 2003 with 27.6.
He espouses arc putting - opening
and closing the club face like a door
on a hinge - a la Ben Crenshaw and
Brad Faxon (not bad putters them-
selves). Utley has coached Jay Haas
so well that Haas is postponing his
fuill-time entrance onto the Champi-
ons Tour even though he has passed
the magic qualifying age of 50.
Utley was one of the presenters at
the recent PGATeaching and Coach-
ing Summit and joked that, "Maybe it
(his success) was God's way of say-
ing, 'Wow, you need a job after play-
ing bad all those years.'" Note that
players seek him out for the short
game, not the full swing.

IT'S GOOD FOR YOUR GAME


Placing a 7-iron behind my back, I warm up I'm practicing hitting to a target, so my entire
my "coil muscles" by swinging back and focus is on the flag. I'm thinking about where I

T he secret to golf for a pro-
Sfessional player is found
L "in the dirt,' a quaint way
of saying that to be good you've
got to practice.
Pros spend most of the day
on the practice tee because golf
is their job. But if you're like
most golfers, your life simply
doesn t allow such large chunks
of practice time. You must find
a way to use what practice time
you have wisely
A decent swing is within
your grasp if you can do two
things: (1) steal the odd 30 min-
utes now and again for practice,
and (2) have a definite goal in
mind for those 30 minutes.
It does you no good to simply
dump a bucket of balls on the
ground and fire away When
you're not.engaged in a goal-di-
rected activity, your mind wan-
ders, making it much too easy
to tinker yourself right out of a
good golf swing.
.There are four basic goals for
any practice session, and you
can use them in any combina-
tion, depending on how much
time you have or what type of
mood you're in. Just make sure
to use at least one goal per ses-
sion.


ABOUT THE WRITER
Dr TJ.Tomasi is
director of instruc-
tion at Lyman Or-
chards Golf Club in
Middlefield, Conn.
To ask him a ques-
tion about golfe-
mail him at: TJIn-
sider@aol.com.

The four goals are:
1. Warming Up: Never
swing full throttle unless you've,
done some stretching and hit a
few balls at half-speed.
In the first photo above, I've
placed a 7-iron behind my back
to warm up my "coil muscles."
In this position, I'll swing back
and through four or five times
in a constant motion - gently
2. Fundamental Practice:
Every golfer has to work on the
fundamentals, such as gripe
stance, posture, aim anda aign-
ment. Even experts like Tiger
Woods need to hone the funda-
mentals at the start of every
season to make sure that no im-
perfections have crept into their


form.
* 3. Target Practice: The
third goal is focusing exclusive-
ly on hitting to a target. Prior
tp striking any ball in this type
of practice, you should work
through your entire pre-shot
routine, including the very
powerful element of visualiza-
tion. This type of practice is
the vital link that helps you
take your game from the range
to the course.
The rule of thumb is that
when you're practicing me-
chanics, no target; when you're
practicing target no mechan-
ics. In the second photo, I'm
practicing hitting to a target, so
my entire focus is on the flag.
I'm thinking about where I .
want the ball to go, not how I'm
going to get it there.
* 4. Practice Playing. You
actually play a-round of golf
right there on the practice
range, using your imagination
to lay outthe course, going.
through your pre-shot routine,
and hitting the shots required
given the situations you create
in your mind. More than a few
tour players do this prior to tee-
ing it up in a competitive
round.


THE GOLF DOCTOR


Ithe e master of your swing
When you're trying to build a
swing, you can't let the ball be your
master. This is what happens when
you make changes in your swing
based on the ball flight of your last
shot.
When the ball is your master you
make random alterations, changing
something that's wrong to some-
thing that s right and vice versa,
never knowing the difference. The.


cycle continues on ad infinitum,
condemning you to tinker with your
swing forever. .
Instead of this constant tinkering,
you should establish a model swing,
break it up into manageable chunks
or tasks and learn your swing one
chunk at a time. Your evaluation
system then must be based on how
well you match the model, not on
how well you're hitting the ball.
This attention to task perfor- ,
mance is the hallmark of a good


learner. It's also why lessons are so
important. The instructor can rate
you on how well you perform a par-
ticular task so you won't be con-'
trolled by the ball flight. -
Once you've built your swing, then
the ball flight becomes the teacher,
i.e. the ball flight allows you to diag-
nose what's right and wrong with
your swing. But while you're learn-
ing ignore the ball flight and work
on the task. It's hard to do, but you'll
learn much more effectively


TEEING OFF


A good


teacher


isn't .hard


to find
T here are many good golf teach-
ers who are happy to help you
hone your game. Finding one is
not difficult, but it does take a bit of
research.
Before you take a lesson, you
should verify your potential teacher's
professional status; for example, is he
or she a member of any organiza-
tions that certify teachers, such as
the PGA, LPGA or USGTF (U.S. Golf
Teachers Federation)?
Beyond the credential, you should
interview your teacher before jump-
, ing in with both feet. Find out how
many years he has been giving
lessons and how often he teaches.
Does he have experience teaching a
student at your level, and does he'
have a certain method of instruction
that can be easily explained?
If you do schedule a lesson, ask
what his plan is for improving your
swing - short term and long term.
Any instructor worth his or her salt
will be glad to share this type of in-
formation with you.
In addition, ask if video will be
used in the lessons. Teachers who use
video do a much better job of in-
structing than those who trust the
naked eye. There may be some teach-
ers who are just as good with or with-
out video, but I haven't found them
yet.
If your teacher tells you that he
doesn't need all these new-fangled
"bells and whistles," find a new
teacher, just as you would a ditch a
doctor. who made fun of MRI technol-
ogy. It's not that your instructor
needs to use video at every lesson,
but he should have it available when
he needs it.
, When you finish your sessiprtn.be
sure to ask how long an incubation
period there will be before you see
positive results. Of course, this time
frame will depend on several factors,
such as how much time you have to
practice between sessions and what
kind of change you're working on.
In any event, the teacher should be
able to give you some sort of mean-
ingful time frame for your learning.
And then, based on the results (or
lack thereof within the allotted time),
you can make another decision:
Should you stick with this teacher?
Remember the definition of insanity
S- finding something that doesn't
work and sticking to it.


ASK THE PRO
Q: Whenever I play, my back
hurts, especially on the back nine.
I'm 65 years old and in good shape
except for my disc problem. Is there
anything I can do? - George, from
the Web
A: It's no fun playing golf with
a bad back, but depending on your
problem there are ways to swing
around it. The key is to avoid the re-
verse-C position where your back is
bent backward through impact.
A 12-ounce club swung at 100
miles an hour has an effective
weight of about 30 pounds. Bending
backward while swinging such a
heavy weight can pull a muscle or
squeeze a disc until it herniates -
and that spells pain.
It's bette r your back if you
swing into your follow-through with
a more upright spine angle. Swing
more around your spine with arms
that never rise above your shoul-
ders. '
Let your arms and hands stay
close to your body and feel as if you
are approaching the ball from inside
the target line, with level hips so
your trail side doesn't dip or tilt as
you come through the golf ball.
As always, before you try any of
the above, consult your physician.

Running off one last time
at the computer ..........
What in the world happened
to the Oklahoma Sooners in
the Orange Bowl? That was
down right embarrassing.
That National Championship
game reminded me of a game
about ten years ago involv-
ing a team from the state of
Florida and a team from Ne-
braska. I wonder what OU
head coach Bob Stoops
would say if Florida and Je-
remy Foley called now?
.......... As for which confer-
ence is tougher, the ACC or
SEC, we will have to wait
until next year. Both confer-
ences finished bowl season
with three wins and three
losses. With Auburn finish-
ing the season at 13-0 and a
Sugar Bowl victory that
should clearly give the SEC
the edge! ....... Beginning
next season, the ACC will
play football aligned into
two six-team divisions,
which will be called the At-
lantic and Coastal. Teams
will play all five opponents
in their division, plus one
primary crossover opponent
every year and two rotating
opponents from the opposite
division. The divisional
champions will meet in the
league's inaugural football
championship game, which
is scheduled to be held in
Jacksonville, Florida, on Sat-
urday, December 3. Without
a doubt, FSU is in the easier


division, considering they
will only have to beat Boston
College and N.C. State to
make it to Jacksonville. On
the other hand, Miami will
have to beat Ga. Tech, Vir-
ginia, and Virginia Tech.
With Florida State being in
the Atlantic Division and Mi-
ami being in the Coastal Di-
vision, both teams could now
wind up playing two times a
season, which will probably
result in two Seminole losses,
if Bobby still lets his son call
the plays. Junior is an overall
0-5 against the Canes .........

215 pounder, Eli Edwards.
Michael wrestled a great
match against Edwards, but
lost some very close points at
the edge of the mat and at the
buzzer.
Four champions arose for
the Bulldogs.


Caleb Wainwright at 119
pounds. Barney Wainwright at
135 pounds. Both handled
their opponents with authori-
ty.
But that wasn't the case
with Lee Laxton or Preston
Hart.
Laxton took a lead of 4-2
going into the third period.
But he was hit for stalling
three times and had to finish
the match in his own tradi-
S tional and breath-taking
style of over-time, defeating
his opponent 6-4 to win the
145 pound weight division .
Preston Hart also had an
exciting finish in his fi-
nal match. When
attempting to
pin his foe,


Hart slipped and fell to his
back giving every one in the
gym a heart-stopping mo-
ment. But in championship
style, Preston regained his
composure, took command
and defeated his opponent to
win the 160 pound weight
class.
Other point-getters were:
130 pounds-Tyler Townsend
140 pounds-William McCrimon
171 pound- Casey Osborne
189 pound-Justin Mowls
275 pound- Kris Kearns
"Our conditioning is no
longer a factor in the third pe-
riod," Laxton said. "It now be-
long to us. We still have some
fundamental skills to work on,
but they are getting better."
The next wrestling match at
home is on Jan. 17 against
" Wakulla. The wrestlers
hit the mat at 3 p.m.

Bulldog soccer loses big

to powerhouse Bolles


By: Sheila Hiss
The Suwannee Bulldogs (9-
2-1) hosted the state power-
house Bolles Bulldogs (8-4-3)
on a very mild Tuesday
evening, Jan. 4. Bolles wasted
no time advancing on the goal,
and had seven shots on goal in
the first 10 minutes of play;
The Suwannee keeper Nathan
Moses was kept busy stopping
five of them. and the other two
were wide of the net.
Bolles continued to shoot at
will, but none found their
mark. Their passing was more
successful, almost mesmeriz-
ing, as the players knew exact-
ly where their teammates were
and moved the ball around the
field with pinpoint accuracy.
Twenty-eight'minutes into the
game, Bolles broke away with
a long kick do\\ n the rightiside


toward the goal. Suwannee's
keeper came out for the ball
and the Bolles attacker kicked
it behind him right toward the
net. This almost sure point
was foiled by a speedy Miguel
Rodriguez who streaked
across in front of the net for a
beautiful running save.
But the Bolles offense was
too good and late in the half
they managed to head in their
first goal, and headed in an-
other, literally, seconds before
the end of the half. The half
ended respectably with Bolles
up 2-0.
In the second half Bolles
continued to control the play,.
scoring first on a comer kick,
and then again from a crowd
in front of the goal. Suwannee
mounted several challenges
with comerikicks near the� end


of the game. The Jacksonville
team did finally manage to ac-
tually kick the ball into the net
after a long boot over the play-
ers' heads. Bolles squeezed in
one more goal seconds before
the end of the game to win it
6-0. Suwannee fought hard
but the superiority of the visit-
ing team prevailed.
Coach Johnson noted that
Suwannee played very tenta-
tively in the first half instead
of their usual assured play. He
also observed that Bolles
played very well and that it
was a good experience to play
such a skilled team.
The next home soccer game
for the Bulldogs is against
Taylor County on Jan. 20.
Game time is 8 p.m. Come out
and watch some great soccer.

Jesus told his potential followers that whoever of you
does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple *
(Luke 14:33). And Jesus advised the ruler who asked I l
him what he must do to inherit eternal life that he should
sell everything he had, distribute the money to the poor, E
and come follow Him (Luke 18:22).
Just as this was very hard for the rich ruler to hear, so it *
is hard for us to imagine giving everything we have to the -
poor and following in Jesus' footsteps. Despite the fact that
there are millions of Christians, very few have been able to
do this. Those few who have chosen to follow the monastic
life may take vows of poverty, but even so, they often have access to all the
modern comforts of hearth and home. For most of us, we simply enjoy our
possessions too much to imagine giving them all away. And, we can justify
our non-adherence to this particular precept by saying as long as we are not
too attached to our possessions, we are abiding by the spirit of the gospels.
Or, as long as we tithe and give to the poor and needy, we are trying-to be
good Christians. These may be convenient rationalizations, and it may
even be true that we can do more good by continuing to work and amass
wealth which we can then give to charity; however, we have to be honest
enough to admit that most of us do not live up to this gospel precept.,
Sell your possessions, and give alms...For where your
treasure, there will your heart be also.
R.S. V. Luke 12:33-34

Usually, it is easier to find fault in someone, rather than to appreciate the good qualities
that they may possess. Constantly criticizing a person will only weaken their incentive to
do their best, or to be a better person: however, constructive encouragement
. bolsters a person's enthusiasm and ambition. Parents, teachers, and
employers who use the "encouragement approach" usually achieve
\ Figl- � good results, and having a good attitude is essential to doing a good
o - job. Everyone likes to feel good about themselves, and giving an
, honest compliment to a friend or stranger will help lift a person's
A spirit. I once knew an owner of a business who would never
compliment his employees, because he thought if he told
them they were doing a good job they would ask for a
. � raise in pay. With this kind of attitude it is difficult to
Keep loyal and good employees who feel that they
Share contributing to the business; and in fact, they may
� � actually feel that they are being taken advantage of. God
s wants us to treat others as we want to be treated, and sharing a
kind word of encouragement to those we come in contact with
reflects God's love and good will.

But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called "today,"
that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.
R.S.V Hebrews 3:13

By Charles Stuart Platkin
Recently researchers report-
ed in the British medical jour-
nal "The Lancet" that people
who ate fast food twice a week
gained 10 pounds more over
15 years than those who did so
less than once a week. And the
Cleveland Clinic has made at-
tempts to remove McDonald's
and other fast-food conces-
sions from its hospital campus.
OK, so fast food is un-
healthy and can make you fat
- but almost any food you eat
too much of can make you fat.
And yes, it can be difficult to
eat healthfully at a fast-food
restaurant, but it can be done.
Here are a few tips, as well as
some foods you can actually
eat.
GO TO THE NET
Don't just walk in, look at
the menu board and start pick-
ing. Almost every fast-food
restaurant has nutrition infor-
mation available on-line, so
check the Internet and have
your order ready in your mind
before you get to the register.
Also, mentally prepare your-
self for suggestions by the
counter person - get ready to
say, "No, thanks."
WATCH THE WEIGHT
Just because a food is low in
calories doesn't mean it's a
bargain. Check the serving size
and look at the grams to com-
pare the weight with that of
other foods you normally eat.
Look to see how much of the
'food you have to eat in order to
feel satisfied. And make sure
you don't deprive yourself -
eat a real meal, which is about
350 to 600 calories for lunch
or dinner depending on your
gender, height and weight.
THE BASICS
- Say no to mayo, tartar
sauce, creamy dressings and
extra cheese. Don't be shy-
ask questions about prepara-
tion.
- Use mustard, ketchup, salt,
pepper or vinegar as fat-free
ways to season your food.
- For salads, watch the nuts,
croutons and other add-ons.
- Chicken and fish can be
good choices - but ONLY if
they are grilled or broiled,
NOT breaded or deep-fried.
- Instead of cheese, opt for
lettuce, tomato and onion. Re-
moving just one slice of cheese
can save you about 100 calo-
ries.
- Order a salad or broth-
based soup to enjoy before
your main meal.
DON'T TAKE
THEIR WORD
Even if an item is labeled
low-carb or "healthy," don't
take their word for it - review
the information. Ask yourself:
Is this lower in calories than
what I would normally choose
to eat? And don't be fooled by
menu items you'd think would
be healthy but aren't, like the
Taco Bell Fiesta Salad, which
packs 870 calories and 47
grams of fat. ,
MAKE BETTER
CHOICES
Look below for some of the
better choices at your favorite
fast-food restaurants.
Taco Bell
- Two Fresco Style Chicken
Ranchero Tacos: 340 calories,
8g fat, 40g carbs, 24g protein.
- Fresco Burrito Supreme
(chicken): 350 calories, 8g fat,
50g carbs, 19g protein. The
steak version has just 1 more
gram of fat and 2 fewer grams
protein.
- Fresco Style Steak Soft
Taco with Fresco Style Mexi-
can Rice: 330 calories, 1 g fat,
45g carbs, 14g protein.
Fit Tip: Order everything
"Fresco Style" - meaning
with salsa and without cheese
or sauce.
* McDonald's
- Chicken McGrill sandwich
without mayonnaise: 300 calo-
ries, 4.5g fat, 37g carbs, 27g
protein.
- California Cobb Salad with


Grilled Chicken (before dress-
ing): 260 calories, 1 lg fat, 10g
carbs, 32g protein.
- Caesar Salad with Grilled
Chicken (before dressing): 200
calories, 6g fat, lOg carbs, 28g
protein.
Fit Tip: Always choose
grilled rather than crispy
chicken, and hold the mayo.
Newman's Own Low Fat Bal-
samic Vinaigrette is the best
dressing at 40 calories for 2


ounces, compared with 120
calories for Cobb dressing or a
whopping 190 calories for
Caesar.
Wendy's
- Ultimate Chicken Grill
Sandwich: 360 calories, 7g fat,
44g carbs, 31g protein.
- Plain 10-ounce baked pota-
to with Country Crock spread
and a side salad with fat-free
French dressing: 445 calories,
7g fat, 87g carbs, 9g protein.
- Two quarter-pound Classi-
cal Singles with no buns and
nothing on them except
ketchup: 415 calories, 26g fat,
4g carbs, 38g protein.
- Mandarin Chicken Salad
with almonds (no noodles) and
fat-free French dressing: 400
calories, 14g fat, 40g carbs,
27g protein. You can also have
the salad without the almonds
and save another 130 calories.
Fit Tip: Be wary of the "re-
duced-calorie" dressings at
Wendy's: They're still a bit
higher than those at other fast-
food restaurants. Use them
sparingly.
Pizza Hut
- Two 12-inch Hand-Tossed
Veggie Lover's slices: 440
calories, 14g fat, 62g carbs,
20g protein.
- Two 14-inch Thin &
Crispy Cheese Slices: 380
calories, 16g fat, 40g carbs,
18g protein.
Fit Tip: If you don't go for
the Fit 'N Delicious selections,
at least avoid deep dish or
stuffed crust, and ask for only
half the cheese.
Burger King
- Chicken Whopper Sand-
wich (on a small bun without
mayo - ask for it): 320 calories,
7g fat, 31g carbs, 35g protein.
Without the bun (but with let-
tuce and tomato), it's only 160
calories.
- Veggie burger, no mayo:
300 calories, 7g fat, 46g carbs,
14g protein.
- Angus Steak Burger - low
carb: 260 calories, 18g fat, 2g
carbs, 24g protein.
- Fire-Grilled Chicken Gar-
den Salad (before dressing):
210 calories, 7g fat. 13g carbs.
26g prote'n.
- Fire-Grilled Shrimp Gar-,
den Salad (before dressing):
200 calories, lOg fat, 12g
carbs, 20g protein.
Fit Tip: Keep in mind that
even the lowest calorie dress-
ing - the fat-free honey mus-
tard - has 70 calories per 2
ounces, which is pretty high.
Order anything low-carb and it
comes without mayo, ketchup
or a bun, saving a bundle of
calories.
Subway
- 6-inch Veggie Delite sand-
wich: 230 calories, 3g fat, 44g
carbs, 9g protein.
- 6-inch Savory Turkey
Breast sandwich: 280 calories,
4.5g fat, 46g carbs, 18g pro-
tein.
- Minestrone soup (1 cup):
90 calories, 4g fat, 7g carbs, 7g
protein.
- Roasted Chicken Noodle
Soup (1 cup): 60 calories, 1.5g
fat, 7g carbs, 6g protein.
Fit Tip: Order your sand-
wich without mayo or other
special sauces - opt for vine-
gar or mustard instead. If you
want a bag of chips, choose
Baked Lays. And if you're re-
ally hungry, ask for a double
meat 6-inch sub: roast beef
(360 calories), turkey (340
calories), or ham (380 calo-
ries).
KFC
- Tender Roast Sandwich:
390 calories, 19g fat, 24g
carbs, 31g protein.
- Caesar Salad without
dressing or croutons: 220 calo-
ries, 9g fat, 6g carbs, 29g pro-
tein.
Fit Tip: If you take the skin
and breading off the Original
Recipe chicken breast, you'll
save a whopping 240 calories
and 16g fat! And if you want a
side, choose green beans (50
calories) or corn on the cob


(150 calories).

won numerous tournaments on
various Texas lakes including
Sam Rayburn, Lake Fork,
Toledo Bend and his home
lake, Lake of the Pines.
Starling recently shared sev-
eral of his fondest memories
from Texas with me. Like the
day he weighed in the heaviest
five-fish limit ever recorded
on his home lake (Lake of the
Pines) of 30.43 pounds (that
lake record still stands, by the
way). He also told me a sto-
ry of a Specialty Bass tourna-
ment he was competing in on
Lake Sam Rayburn, when he
had camera crews from TNN
outdoors in the boat with him
filming for a show that actual-
ly aired during prime time pro-
gramming hours. That tourna-
ment he captured the $5,000
first place prize and the cam-
eras were there to capture it
all!
Then there was the time that
Starling recorded a second
place finish in a tournament on
the world famous Lake Fork.
Starling said that although he
didn't win that tournament, it
was one of the most memo-
rable days of fishing that he
has ever experienced. Only
three bass were allowed to be
weighed-in instead of the tra-
ditional five on Lake Fork and
Starling said he caught five
bass over six pounds in his
first five casts!. He was .actual-
ly flipping to an opening in a
hydrilla bed that was no bigger
than the hood of a truck. He
was able to cull a three-fish
limit of 20.43 pounds. from
that honey hole!
During his tournament days
in Texas, Starling also often
partnered with another skilled
Texas angler, Kevin
Blasingame. Together the two
anglers dominated the local
team tournament trails. In
1995 Starling 'was actually
leading the Arigler of the Year


point standings for the Spe-
cialty Bass Tournament Trail
in both the individual and team
divisions. It was at that time
that he and his family decided
to move back to Florida.
Starling estimates that be-
fore his move back to Live
Oak he had won over $50,000
in tournament cash and prizes
fishing the various tournament
trails such as Operation Bass'
Red Man (now FLW Outdoors
Wal-Mart Bass 'Fishing
League), Specialty Bass and
other local tournaments in
Texas. Starling moyed to
Live Oak in July 1995& and af-
ter he and his family Had set-
tied in, he decided to enter the
B.A.S.S. Eastern Invitational
tournaments for the 1996 sea-
son. These tournaments were
not your average weekend
warrior fishing derbies. They
were professionally run and
operated by the Bass Anglers
Sportsman Society.
That year Starling was in
competition against the na-
tion's best bass professionals.
He was subjected to a tourna-
ment format that was totally-
new to him and it took some
adjustment on his part. The
Invitational format paired two
professional anglers together
in one boat and the two com-
petitors had to share the boat
and daily fishing time with
each other. This new format'
combined with the fact that
Starling had little to no experi-
ence on many of the tourna-
ment waters made for a hum-
bling experience.
Starling failed to cash a check
in any of the six Invitational
tournaments that he fished that
year, although he knew it was
not because of his lack of abil-
ity or skill as an angler.
After his disappointing sea-
son fishing the Eastern Invita-
tionals, Starling decided to
"cut back" on fishing to spend
more time with his familN. His
two children,. Stephanie and


Walter Starling in front of his trusty bass boat.


Justin (now 17 and 15) were
beginning ,to become actively
involved in competitive sports
and he wanted to insure that he
was involved with their en-
deavors as much as possible.
Starling grew up playing
sports and was (and still is) ex-
tremely competitive, which
was the driving force that
eventually led him back to
competing in bass tourna-
ments. Although Starling did
not compete in any national
tournaments over the next few
years, he did join the local bass
club (the North Florida Bass-
masters of Wellborn) and- has
since won several club tourna-
ments as well as the big bass
of the year honors for the club.
The key, Starling says, to
being able,to, stay competitive
in tournament bass fishing. is

simply to spend time on the
water. Starling was able to
spend a lot more time on the
water than most anglers while
living in Texas. He said that
his time and experiences
played a key role in his tourna-
ment successes during his first
years of competitive bass fish-
ing. As his family grew, the
demands on his time increased
and his time on the water de-
creased tremendously.
In 2000 Starling began a
new "competition," however.
I view it as more of an occupa-
tion than competition, but
Starling saw his new career as
just that. The name of the
game was "grow chickens and
grow them big" and he wanted
to be the best at it. He had four
chicken houses constructed
and the dedication Starling put


into competitive tournament
fishing obviously filtered into
his poultry farming. During his
first two years as a poultry
farmer he was awarded the Top
Grower of the Year Honors by
Gold Kist Farms. Realizing he
had a knack for his new occu-
pation, this prompted Starling
to invest in four additional
chicken houses. Starling uti-
lized the help from his family
and together, they were able to
stay on top of the daily de-
mands of operating eight poul-
try houses.
Fast forward to January
2002. Starling had an old,
.competitive itch that needed to
be scratched. It had been over
six years since he had fished in
a large bass tournament and his
competitive nature got the best
of him. I convinced Starling to,
travel with me down to Lake
Okeechobee to compete in a
Florida B.A.S.S. Federation
Regional Qualifier tournament
and that was all it took,: The
competitive fire had been lit
and after fishing various tour-
naments throughout 2002, he
decided to compete in the 2003
Gator Division of the Wal-
Mart Bass Fishing League.
Four of the five tournaments
in the Gator Division BFL
were held on Lake Okee-
chobee and though his experi-
ence on the lake was some-
what limited, Starling still
managed to finish in 19th place
in the Angler of the Year stand-
ings. Starling's top 30 finish
qualified him to compete in the
FLW Outdoors Everstart Se-
ries Tournament trail for the
2004 season. The Everstart
Series is a very tough trail. It
is a semi-pro trail, meaning
that there are at least 50 per-
cent of the anglers who com-
pete that are full time touring-
bass professionals and 50%
"weekend warriors" (those
who have regular full time jobs
they work). This season on the
Everstart Tour Starling visited


Lake Okeechobee, Lake Eu-
faula, Lake Guntersville and
Lake Sante Cooper.
Starling posted strong show-
ings this year and finished the
regular season in 10th place
overall. He recently traveled
to Kentucky to compete in the
Everstart Championship and
he will have priority entry into
the 2005 FLW tour. The FLW
tour boasts the largest pay-
backs of any tournament trail
in the nation. Starling says
that he considered passing up
the opportunity to compete on
the FLW tour this year but he
was encouraged by his long-
time friend Jim Tutt, who is
also a professional fisherman
on the FLW tour and member
of the Kellogg's fishing team,
to take the opportunity. while
he had it.
No doubt, Starling will have
his hands full with the high
level of competition he will
face from the other 199 bass
professionals competing on the
FLW Tour plus the responsibil-
ity of maintaining the daily op-
erations' of his poultry farm.
He says that his family will
help to manage the farm while
he is away at tournaments this
year and because the FLW
Tour has tournament destina-
tions around the nation, he will
probably fly to several of the
tournament sites to pre-fish
rather than drive.
Did I mention Starling is
also a pilot? This past week-
end, Starling flew his single-
engine Gruman Tiger down
to Clewiston to practice a lit-
tle for. the FLW season open-
er. Starling's first tourna-
ment is only a couple of
weeks away, where the sea-
son opener will kick off on
Lake Okeechobee. The final
weigh-in will be broadcast
live at Wal-Mart on closed
circuit television. Otherwise,
you can catch the FLW Out-
doors TV show on Fox Sports'
every Sunday afternoon.

SEC East rank at stake


. 17.5 C oming off a valiant effort against Kentucky at Rupp Arena
17.3 and a blowout victory at home over Georgia, South
. 17.0 Carolina comes to the Colonial Center on Saturday to face
. 16.7 Tennessee in a crucial battle for positioning in the SEC East.
. 16.5 Early-season losses on the road to nationally ranked Kansas
. 16.2 and Pittsburgh prepared the Gamecocks for Rupp Arena, where
they led Kentucky 41-35 at the half before falling 79-75. South
Carolina rebounded by destroying Georgia 74-54 last Saturday.
6.9 South Carolina won 23 games last year and earned an at-large
S55 bid to the NCAA tournament, but was still a .500 team in league
. 5.4 play. For Dave Odom's squad to establish itself among the best in
4.8 the SEC, it has to defend its home court.
*4.6 Tennessee, one of two league teams with four returning starters
4. this season, just cannot seem to gel. There's plenty of talent, led by
4.0 Scooter McFadgon, C.J. Watson and Brandon Crump, but it hasn't
IS translated into a significant number of wins.
The Volunteers finished the 2003-04 campaign at 15-14 after a
loss to George Ma.son in the first round of the NIT. Although
.-t.* Tnsee haiss struggled this year, abig road in on Saturda)
S88 . could'help the Volunteers get on the right track.
17.2 * Records: Tennessee 8-6 (1-1 SEC East); South Carolina 9-4
17.2 (1-1 SEC East). M Coaches: Tennessee's Buzz Peterson (160-98);
16.8 - T f p
16.6 South Carolina's Dave Odom (344-220). U Tip-off: 7p.m. ET

Saturday. M TV: Fox Sports Net/Sunshine Network.
Keys for Tennessee: Establish Brandon Crump inside,
11.5 something the Volunteers didn't do last Saturday against
. 9.5 Vanderbilt.... Don't give up easy layups. Vanderbilt hit 18
. 8.6 3-pointers, but also converted several gimmes.
S8.1 Keys for South Carolina: Continue to use its defense to
6,8 generate offense. The Gamecocks blocked a season-high 10 shots
6 .and registered 11 assists against Georgia last Sunday.... Get solid
contributions from the bench, which gave the Gamecocks a big
. 615 boost against Kentucky and Georgia.

The Rest of the Matchups


.51 Kentucky at Georgia

868 U Records: Kentucky 10-2 (1-0 SEC East); Georgia 6-6 (0-2 SEC
868 East); M Coaches: Kentucky's Tubby Smith (325-116); Georgia's
863 Dennis Felton (122-74). I Tip-off: 1 p.m. ET Saturday. TV:
833 Jefferson Pilot.
812 Keys for Kentucky: Put it away early. Tennessee and South
797 Carolina outscored Georgia by a combined score of 86-57 over the
first 20 minutes.... The front line of KelennaAzubuike, Chuck
6.2 Hayes and Randolph Morris has to get better shots after going a
5.6 combined 8-of-35 from the field in last.Sunday's loss to Kansas.
5.4 .Keys for Georgia: Felton and his staff will have to find ways to
5.0 negate Kentucky's height advantage.... Leading scorer Levi
4.9 Stukes has- to knock down the mid-range jumper. Stukes was
4.5 4-of-8 from the 3-point line against Tennessee, but only 1-of-10
inside the arc.
2.8 Arkansas at Mississippi State

2.1 M Records: Arkansas 13-2 (1-1,SEC West); Mississippi State 14-2
2.0 (2-0 SEC West). U Coaches: Arkansas' Stan Heath (64-43);
1.9 Mississippi State's Rick Stansbury (140-66). S Tip-off: 2 p.m. CT
1.6 .Saturday. U TV: None.


Keys for Arkansas: Come out hot. The Razorbacks shot 37.5
and 37 percent in the first half against Ole Miss and Florida.
... Challenge Mississippi State All-American Lawrence Roberts
and get him in foul trouble. Roberts had one foul in 28 minutes
against Auburn and two in 34 minutes at Ole Miss.
Keys for Mississippi State: Continue to be efficient offensively.
The Bulldogs have shot more than 50 percent in each of their first
two SEC games and are scoring on close to half of their
possessions.... As he has done early in the conference slate, point
guard Gary Ervin has to shoot well, pass and rebound.

Florida at Vanderbilt
1 Records: Florida 9-3 (1-0 SEC East); Vanderbilt 11-4 (2-0 SEC
East). E Coaches: Florida's Billy Donovan (213-107);
Vanderbilt's Kevin Stallings (219-136). Tip-off: 3 p.m. ET
Saturday. N TV: Jefferson Pilot.
Keys for Florida: Win the battle down low. Vanderbilt
outscored Florida in'the paint by 26 points in tWo meetings'last
season...,. Get, a hand~in Mario Moore's face'every Itime he takes-
a shot. In Vanderbilt's 86-72 win in Nashville last year, Moore was
5-of-6 from behind the 3-point arc.
Keys for Vanderbilt: Good perimeter defense. Florida is
capable of hitting at least 50 percent of its shots, but the
Commodores have held their last seven opponents to 40 percent or
less from the field.... Keep Florida off the line. The Gators were
35-for-39 from the free-throw line in last year's 10-point victory
in Gainesville.

Ole Miss at Auburn
0 Records: Ole Miss 9-6 (0-2 SEC West); Auburn 9-5 (0-1 SEC
West). Coaches: Ole Miss' Rod Barnes (122-82); Auburn's Jeff
Lebo (124-68). N Tip-off: 4 p.m. CT. Saturday. N TV: Fox Sports
Net/Sunshine Network.
Keys for Ole Miss: More touches for Londrick Nolen, who had
19 points against Arkansas and scored 12 points on 5-of-8
shooting in the loss to Mississippi State.... Start knocking down
3-pointers or quit taking so'many.The Rebels were 11-of-47 from
behind the 3-point line in last week's setbacks.
Keys for Auburn: No lapses. Mississippi State closed out the
first half ofithe conference opener with a 17-4 run and iced the
game with a 21-6 second-half run..... A breakout SEC game for
freshman Toney Douglas, the conference's leading.scorer, who
was held to 14 points in his first league contest

Ohio State at LSU
N Records: Ohio State 12-3 (1-1 Big Ten); LSU 6-5 (0-1 SEC
West). M Coaches: Ohio State's Thad Matta (114-34); LSU's John
Brady (215-174). U Tip-off: 7 p.m. CT Saturday. 0 TV: None.
Keys for Ohio State: Use Terence Dials, who had 22 points in
the Buckeyes' 81-69 victory over Iowa, to open up the outside "
game. Ohio State was 12-of-28 from 3-point range against Iowa.
... The Biuckeyes can't let the Tigers beat them off the dribble, as
Illinois did in the Big Ten opener.
Keys for LSU: More shots for Antonio Hudson, who is
shooting 48.6 percent this season. Hudson is averaging 10 shots
per game, but took only six against Alabama last Saturday.
... Take better care of the basketball. The Tigers committed 18
turnovers and dished out only 13 assists in the loss to the Crimson
Tide..

I MtiBAMA Senior guard Jason Reese
has not seen action for the
Crimson Tide since returning to the team on
Jan. 1. The 6-foot-2 Reese, a former walk-on
and two-year letter winner in basketball,
played football this fall and rejoined the
basketball team following Alabama's 20-16
loss to Minnesota in the Music City Bowl.
t .mrANSAS For the second straight
year, the University of
Florida was lights-out from the floor against
the Razorbacks. The Gators hit 59.5 percent
of their shots, including 77.8 percent in the
second half, last Saturday and gave Arkansas
its second loss of the season, 82-74.
IM URN Senior guard Ronny
LeMelle will apply for a
medical hardship through the SEC at the end
of the season. LeMelle, who suffered three
injuries to his right leg, averaged 6.0 points
in four games before an injury sustained
against Wofford early last month ended his
season. If granted the medical hardship,
LeMelle will be able to play next season.
i RlIDA The Gators learned last week
that they will lose leading
scorer Matt Walsh for 4-6 weeks. Walsh is
wearing a protective boot on his left foot
after suffering a syndesmotic ankle sprain,
which includes torn ligaments between the
fibula and tibia bones, in a Dec. 29 practice.
JteIRGIA According to a study
conducted by the Athens
(Ga.) Banner-Herald, Georgia has the
youngest squad in the nation. The Bulldogs
had eight freshmen, five sophomores and
one junior when practice began last October.
"I can't remember even seeing any team,
including anybody else's team, in our
position," Georgia head coach Dennis Felton
said.
'VmNTruc'g Y The Wildcats used 13
players in the first half of
last Sunday's 65-59 loss to No. 2 Kansas. "I
think without question it will help us down
the road in NCAA play and also in the
' Southeastern Conference," said Bobby
Perry, who set career highs in points,
rebounds and assists. "It was important that
our players could get in the game and see
some quality minutes. That experience will
pay off."
Leading scorer Brandon Bass was
held to 10 points as the Tigers fell
to Alabama last Saturday in their league
opener. Bass scored LSU's first eight points
of the second half, but didn't score in the
final 16 minutes and six seconds of the
game. The loss was LSU's fourth in five
games.
SISSIPPI After a one-game
absences Tommie
Eddie returned to the lineup and had 18
points in the Rebels' loss to Mississippi State
last Saturday. Eddie missed the conference
opener, a 69-46 loss at Arkansas, because of
academic issues. He was cleared last Friday
to play the rest of the season.
sNS STATE Guard Winsome
Frazier sat out the final
32 minutes and 23 seconds of last Saturday's
87-76 win at Ole Miss after injuring his left
foot. The day after the win, Bulldogs head
coach Rick Stansbury didn't know the
severity of the injury. Stansbury, whose team
trailed by 10 when Frazier was injured, said,
"Where the soreness is at, and the swelling is
at, it's not a good sign."
OfIAROLINA Sophomore Paulius
Joneliunas will transfer
to American University in Washington,
D.C., after receiving his release from South
Carolina. The 6-foot-11 center from
Lithuania played in three games this season
for the Gamecocks.
l9iBNNESSEE Charles and Cathy
Watson, the parents of
Volunteers point guard C.J. Watson, were
ejected athalftime of Tennessee's 72-65 win
at Georgia. The Watsons were seated among
Georgia season ticket-holders, and Stegeman
Coliseum officials asked them to move after
receiving complaints about the pair's
behavior. According to Georgia officials,
they began swearing and were ejected.
tMN nDERBILT The Commodores set a
School record with 18
3-pointers and won their seventh straight
with last Saturday's 88-63 victory at
Tennessee. Vanderbilt hit 12 3-point shots as
it defeated Alabama 70-56 in the conference
opener for both squads.
