,Rhoda Crews is Teacher of the Year


*. Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
She's bright, beautiful, loves children and
teaching, but on Jan. 27, Rhoda Webb Crews
*was totally shocked when she was told she
% ill represent Suwannee County as the 2004-
'05 Teacher of the Year.
SCrews, who teaches kindergarten at Suwan-
nee Primary School, could not believe it when
she looked up and saw Superintendent of
Schools Walter Boatright in her classroom
Thursday morning, there to tell her she had
been selected from among six county teachers
of the year as the district teacher of the year.

Presented with flowers, Crews shed
tears of joy when she received the news
in front of her class.
Among those there for the occasion
were Boatright, Suwannee County Ex-
cellence in Education Foundation Ex-
ecutive Director Nancy Daniels and
Foundation President Nelda Croft.
As part of the award, Crews will re-
ceive local prizes from businesses as
well as $1,250 from Burdines and the
State of Florida.
Crews taught sixth grade in 1986-99
and then began teaching kindergarten,
a job she says she truly loves. She said
her "greatest contribution is being and
educator who is diverse in her teaching
philosophy and methods." She adds in
her application for the teacher of the
year that she. likes to accept new ideas
and suggestions and is willing to make
changes in her teaching style to provide
strategies for all the learning abilities
of her students. Crews said if she were
selected as teacher of the year, she has
a message for her peers and the com-
munity. "I would like to emphasize that
teachers, parents and the community
need to work together to educate the
minds of students with love and pa-
tience, but above all, with respect and cou

the students to become well-rounded, p

running ear to ear, Suwannee Primary School kindergarten teacher Rhoda Crews, holding flowers she was

an information center will be

"He rarely spoke to any-
one," Jones said. "He wasn't
arrogant or too proud, he was
just shy."
Jones spent 10 years work-
ing close to Carson. Jones was
a casting agent for NBC. His
shows aired in the studio
across the hall from the
"Tonight Show." . Jones
shared the hallway, and the
same wardrobe, dressing
room and make-up room with
Carson. "He'd come in to
work around 2 or 3:30. Every-
day I'd see him and say hello.
And he always said hello to
me."
Jones didn't think anything
of this until Joan Rivers' as-
sistant saw Carson say hellp
to him. She said Carson must
like him because he rarely
spoke to anyone. Jones later
discovered that Carson, from
the Midwest, liked his Live
Oak accent.
"I didn't know him person-
ally," Jones said. "I knew him
on a professional basis. But
he never changed from being
a Midwestern, Nebraska boy."
"There wasn't any joke or
humor that was safe from Mr.
Carson or the "The Tonight
Show" staff writers," Jones
said.
"It wasn't uncommon for a
joke that one of us told in the
hallway prior to taping, to end
up in his monologue," Jones
said. "Mr. Carson taped
"skits" for each show in the
early afternoon, Jones, would
stand a few feet away await-
ing "playback" on the moni-
tors, to see if Mr. Carson was
happy with the results.

All in all, 2005 is beginning
to look like a very good year
for economic development
with more projects in the plan-
ning stages, including a west-
ward bypass off US 129 north,
new businesses planned for
the area, and a new state
prison that hopefully will be
funded by the Legislature this
session that is expected to
bring with it more than 300
good-paying jobs.

songs for that night's show.
They would rehearse their
songs 15 to 20 times making
changes to fit into the allotted
time. When one of Mr. Car-
son's sons died in 1991, he
paid special tribute to him on
camera by showing off his
photography work and saying
how proud he was of him. Mr.
Carson teared up, as did
everybody in the studio" Jones
said.
Jones said he and the build-
ing security guards at NBC
used to go onto the Tonight
Show set after taping for the
day was over. They'd clear off
the sheets, and he'd sit at Car-
son's desk while they played
quarters.
According to Jones, Car-
son always drove himself to
work. He didn't have a
chauffeur, a limo or a body-
guard. He was independent.


For a while when Carson was
being stalked, Jones said the
Burbank Police Department
would escort him onto the
freeway every evening after
work to see him safely home.
Jones said Carson gave a
lot of stars their start by
inviting them to guest-host
his show. "We used to joke
that he was the only man in
show business who made
$30 million a year and only
worked three or four days a
week," Jones said
Carson was host of the
late-night talk show from
October 1, 1962, to May 22,
1992 with 4,531 episodes.
Carson took over from Jack
Paar and when he retired, he
turned over the show to long-
time guest host Jay Leno. He
was born in 1925, in Corn-
ing, Iowa and is survived by
his fourth wife, Alexis. Car-


son had three sons, Christo-
pher and Cory from his first
marriage to Joan "Jody"
Wolcott, and his third son,
Richard, who died in a car
accident in 1991.
Jones said he got back to
his home in Los Angeles
Tuesday, from a trip to Live
-Oak to visit his mother,
Grace Jones. Jones is the son
of Vincent and Grace Jones
of Live Oak. When he got to
his home he had condolence
calls from people who knew
he worked with Carson 10
years ago. Jones has two
brothers in Live Oak and a
sister who lives in Ft. Laud-
erdale. He plans to move
back to Suwannee County
some time in May. to start a
business.
"Mr. Carson was down-
home, natural and unaffect-
ed," Jones said.

petition, she will receive more
than $10,000. All of these lev-

and hope that those who gra-
ciously stepped aside will
now receive a flu shot," Ag-
wunobi added.
Parents of children aged 6
months and older should con-
tact their pediatrician or local
county health department for
information about vaccina-


tions. Children who have re-
ceived their first flu shot
should seek an appointment to
receive a second dose.
In addition to vaccination,
continue following a few sim-
ple steps to reduce the proba-
bility of contracting respirato-
ry infections:
* Clean hands often with
Ssoap and water, or an alcohol-
based hand cleanser.
* Avoid touching your eyes,
nose or mouth.
* Stay home when you are
sick and keep sick children


home.
* Avoid close contact with
people who are ill, if possible.
* Do not share eating uten-
sils, drinking glasses, towels
or other personal items.
* Cover your nose and
mouth with a tissue vWhen you
cough or sneeze.
For more information about
vaccine distribution, contact
your local county health de-
partment. For information,

VIEWPOINTS & OPINION


BIBLE VERSE

But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on His law he meditates day and
night. - Psalm 1:2

Managing Editor


Members of the Suwannee
Democrat editorial board are Myra
C Regan. publisher, and Susan K.
Lamb. managing editor. Our
View is formed by that board.


OUR VIEW


Hear the thump!
Hear that thump! Thump! Thump! It's the
heartbeat of Suwannee County beating faster
and faster as 2005 gets underway, anticipating
the new year and all the good things it's going
to bring our way.
Realtors say their inventory of land and homes
is way down...they've sold almost everything
that was listed and need more to meet the in-
creased demand of those wanting to move into
Suwannee County or move up to bigger homes
or pieces of property.
Chamber of Commerce officials say this year
could be a booming year for new businesses to
locate in Suwannee County. Officials are wait-
ing anxiously to see closure on many new pro-
jects expected to bring to this county many,
many new and high-paying jobs this year.
Suwannee County Commissioners and Live
Oak officials are among those anxiously await-
ing news that funding had been approved for the
new prison just east of Live Oak that will bring
with it hundreds of jobs and millions in eco-
nomic impact when it's being built.
Developers are bringing in new sub-division
plats every month to the county for approval.
That may or may not be a good thing as the
Slonod o.fal !.: Y . ' f l .ol
Scuny has begun it's long trek towards chang-
ing the land development rules to reflect the
current needs for protecting the county and pro-
viding the right message to the business world
that Suwannee County is progressive and wants
new business. Some of these sub-divisions
aren't exactly what the county wants to see but
commissioners have chosen not to put a morato-
rium on new subdivisions at this time.
New people are moving in daily. Title closings
are taking place at a rapid pace.
New businesses are moving toward north US
129 and south US 129. The city is being asked
on a regular basis to consider changes and new
ideas for projects that had not even been
dreamed three years ago.
It's all a pace that is hard for the Chamber, the
city, the county, the developers, the people to
keep up with. But, it's not going to change. It's
going to move even faster as the exodus from
South Florida grows larger and larger this year,
bringing to North Florida those who want the
country life just like Suwannee County, but
want the amenities of the city life they are leav-
ing also.
While the city is struggling to move forward
at a pace that will catch the city up on prepar-
ing for the future, many difficult decisions have
to be made, and made quickly. County Commis-
sioners find themselves in the same situation.
All must move slowly enough to evaluate the
situations carefully, yet fast enough not to lose,
out on great projects for this county.
We applaud both the city and county for the
strides they are making, for working closely
with the Chamber and Legislators to bring about
needed changes in small, rural counties and
small cities and encourage an even better work-
ing relationship in the future as they all work to
keep that Thump! Thump!-Thump! moving even
more rapidly.

COMMENTARY


The Christmas lights have
been taken down and stored
for another year. The way
time is passing so quickly,
it won't be long before they
will be up again. I must thank Suwan-
nee Valley Electric for putting up and
taking down the lights for us each year.
We appreciate the employees of Suwan-
nee Valley for their assistance in taking
on this task. Suwannee Valley is a very
important business and community
partner. Through the efforts and leader-
ship of Jerry Martin, Suwannee Valley
supports many projects that benefit our
community. We appreciate Jerry and
Suwannee Valley for their continued
support.
Congratulations to the teachers who
were chosen as Teacher of the Year in
their respective schools. Teachers are
the "unsung heroes" in our communi-
ty and don't get the credit and recog-
nition they deserve. Look for a way to
show your appreciation to your child's
teachers. They are all Teachers of the
Year.
The streetscape or downtown rede-
velopment project is going well and is
ahead of schedule. The disruptions in
traffic and the downtown businesses
were kept to a minimum. The city im-
pressed on the developer to be con-
scious of theses factors as the work pro-
gressed. They have done this. You are
getting a professional and high quality
job from the J. B. Coxwell Cbmpany.
The new street lights are very impres-
sive. When the existing street lights
were removed, DOT required that the
new lights provide the same amount of
lighting that the old lights gave. The
fact that the poles are shorter, the new


MAYOR'S
CORNER


BY SONNY NOBLES


lights stand out much more than the
lights that were taken down. This pro-
ject is a great asset to the look of our
downtown. We will all be proud of the
improvements when this project is
complete. A big THANK YOU goes out
to the downtown businesses for their
patience during construction.
The city is in the process of replacing
many stuck water meters. We are noti-
fying residents either personally or by
door hangers that your meter is being
changed. If your meter is replaced, you
may experience some brown water due
to rust being stirred from the installa-
tion. If this occurs, run your water until
it clears. Be especially careful about
washing clothes. After flushing your
other pipes, you may want to run your
washer through a quick cycle so that
clothes will not become discolored.
Thanks for your patience and under-
standing.
The new housing development
planned for Silas Drive has taken an-
other step toward becoming a reality. I
understand that the land has now been
purchased and the development is mov-
ing forward with site and engineering
plans. Housing is one of the big prob-
lems we have in our area. Rental units
are very scarce. Hopefully, this new 110


NS



unit development will help alleviate
some of our housing needs. We haye
been in talks with other developers who
are also planning to develop new hous-
ing in the city.
In 2003 and 2004 the city building
department issued 835 building per-
mits. During 2003, the construction in
the city was valued at $4,728,000 arid
in 2004, values totaled $3,795,248 for a
whopping $8,523,248 in construction
cost values. With all the activity we
have been having at City Hall, it ap-
pears that 2005 will be another busy
year for building. Just last week a coln-
tractor came in and applied for a permit
to build a medical office. This project
was valued at over $500.000. As I am
sure you have noticed, oursleepy little
village is beginning to awaken. We
need growth in our community. O'ir
goal at City Hall is to ensure planned
and managed growth in Live Oak. The
Chamber, with the support of your city
and county governments, has been
working with several 'businesses that
are interested in locating here. These
will be extremely important in provid-
ing jobs and improving our tax base.
Hopefully some good news will be
coming soon concerning these busi-
nesses.
The deadline for making application
for Florida Healthy Kids insurance pro-
gram is Jan. 29. This public/private in-
surance program provides affordable
insurance to eligible children 18 years
of age and younger. You can't beat this
deal. Time is an issue in applying. Call
toll free at 1-888-540-5437 for more ih-
formation. Another way to protect your
child's health is to have them buckle
up. It's the law.

OPINION

Small business serves more than customers


You know some of them as your
neighbors and friends. You rely on some
for quality products and services. You
see their names on Little League uni-
forms; their banners fly high over com-
munity picnics and their brands sponsor
high school yearbooks.
But it is unlikely that .you will read
about them in the newspaper or see them
on the evening news. They are small-
business owners and they play a far
greater role in the community than one
might imagine.
American small businesses may not be
big in size but they are enormous con-
tributors to their communities, giving
roughly $40 billion over the past year
alone, according to a poll conducted for
the NFIB Research Foundation.
There is no reason for you to know
that. News coverage of business activi-
ties is dominated by high profile, nega-
tive stories such as corporate scandals or
bankruptcies. But for every company
that runs afoul of the law, there are mil-
lions that quietly go about their business,
abiding by the laws, paying more than
their share of taxes and fending off over-
zealous government regulators while
still managing to create jobs and feed
their families. And, while doing all of
that, they contribute on a large scale to
their communities.
You won't see much news coverage of
a Saturday morning car wash at the local


filling station or hear interviews of folks
who volunteer long, hard hours at chari-
ties, but many of those activities would-
n't take place if it weren't for small-busi-
ness owners.
It is no secret that they serve' as job
generators, innovators, creators of niche
products and a buffer to the constant up-
and-down business cycles. But rare is
the media report that details the signifi-
cant role small business plays in build-
ing and sustaining the civic and charita-
ble foundation of America's communi-
ties.
In the past year, more than nine-of-10
small employers contributed to their
communities by volunteering and pro-
viding in-kind contributions or cash do-
nations, the poll found. More than two-
fifths of those contributed in all three
ways.
Seventy percent of respondents made
cash contributions and one-in-10 of
those donated more than $10,000. The
average cash donation was $3,600. A


similar number made in-kind contribu-
tions averaging $4,000 each.
The 74 percent who say they volup-
teer for community and charitable actiy-
ities spend, on average, more than 18
working days a year lending their con-
siderable management and leadership
skills to local organizations.
Why do small businesses give to their
communities? Not to attract more busi-
ness, the survey determined. Those re-
sponding said they did it primarily fbr
personal satisfaction and fulfillment.
Least important to them was any direct
business benefit. Some indicated they
gave to create a better business climate,
others said their community activism
was done to make their communities
better places to live.
Small-business owners are not alohe
in contributing their time and resources
to their communities, but it is important
to recognize the contributions they ha''e
made, quietly and with little notice in the
news.
Jack Faris is president of NFIB (the
National Federation of Independent
Business), the nation's largest small-
business advocacy group. A non-profit,
non-partisan organization founded mn
1943, NFIB represents the consensus
views of its 600,000 members in Wash-
ington, D.C., and all 50 state capitals.

receives scholarship


A Lake City Community
iCollege student received a
scholarship from the Hospice
of North Central Florida net-
work. Kendra Hosford, 23, a
registered nursing student
from Lake City, received $500
for the Spring semester.
- Hosford said she is interest-
ed in nursing because she
likes helping people and their
families.
S "I hold hospice close to my
.heart because my grandfather
iwas cared for by a hospice
program 14 years ago," she
said. Tim Bowen, executive
i-director of the Hospice of
cNorth Central Florida net-
;Work, said the scholarships al-
'low' nursing students to focus
jnrn their training. "It is our
!-way of supporting their edu-
cation," Bowen said. "We are
-helping nurses in our commu-
Imities gain expertise in pallia-
2 tive care, which focuses on
.quality of life, to help them
-care for patients and families
--ithroughout their careers."


Recipients of the scholarship
must be enrolled in their sec-
ond year of a registered nurs-
ing program and have a mini-
mum grade point average of
2.8. Financial need and acade-
mic performance are also con-
sidered. They also attend a
Hospice of North Central
Florida network orientation.
Hospice of the Suwannee Val-
ley, in Lake City, is part of the
Hospice of North Central
Florida network. Linda Her-
man, a 43-year-old St. Johns
Community College nursing
student from St. Augustine,
also received a scholarship
from the Hospice of North
Central Florida network. Hos-
pice of the Suwannee Valley,
part of the North Central
Florida network, serves peo-
ple and their communities af-
fected by life-limiting illness
and loss by providing compre-
hensive, compassionate care,
while respecting each per-
son's needs, beliefs and wish-
es.

On Jan. 1 Wayne- Allen
Young Sr., 41, may have saved
a life when he discovered a
young woman on Interstate 10
whose car had wrecked and
trapped her for some time
without anyone discovering
her. When Stephanie Downour
was found by Young, he
helped her from her car, held
her hand and prayed with the
young woman (who was in ex-
cruciating pain) while they
awaited an ambulance that
would take her to have her
very serious injuries treated.
Last week Downour put a

an "unforgotten hero." Young
was so proud, he showed it to
everyone. Wayne Young died

269th members escape
harm in rocket attack
Phone calls and e-mails
quickly alerted area families
of the 269th Engineer Com-
pany this week when rockets
hit the quarters of the 269th
Engineer Company stationed
in Balad, Iraq. The first rock-
et landed right in the middle
of the 269th Engineer Com-
pany living area at about
9:10 a.m. Feb. 3, coming
though the tent roof of the
269th Equipment Platoon
and through the bed of a
269th soldier and lodged in
the wood floor of the tent!
However, no one was in the
bed and the rocket didn't go
off! No one was hurt in what
could be described as a mira-
cle. A second rocket did go
off in another area, but it did
not injure any member of the
269th. The unit has been un-
der the protection of God
since they left Live Oak al-
most a year ago, family
members say.

A local teenager who was
driving a car last year that
overturned and killed a 13-

guilty and been sentenced to
juvenile prison. Aimee L.

sistant State Attorney David
Fina. In a plea bargain with
the state, Belcher was com-
mitted to a level six facility
for juveniles where she will
remain under the Department
of Juvenile Justice until she's
19, according to Fina. Her dri-
ver's license was permanently
revoked and she will not ever
be allowed to have another
driver's license in Florida, he
said. Also she must pay a fine
of $500, pay restitution of
$5,000 for funeral expenses
for the victim and also pay
court costs of $326. Belcher is
already 18 and will be eligible
for release next year. Fina said

Sperring cleared in
Department of Education
investigation

Principal Clyde Sperring will
remain in his administrative
job with the Suwannee Coun-

month that it found no cause
to suspend or revoke his
teaching certificate. Wyman
Harvard was ordered in Octo-
ber of 2002 to suspend Sper-


ring from his job as principal
at SHS. That order came
down after DOE's Profession-'
al Practices Commission be-
gan an investigation into alle-
gations that former SHS band
director Jason Hilliard had
been involved sexually with
some students. Sperring was
Hillard's supervisor. Hilliard
later entered into a plea agree-
ment on sex charges and his
teaching certificate was sur-
rendered.

Guard unit was scheduled to
arrive late'last night (April
13) at Fort Stewart, Ga and
families were to be on hand to
greet them. However, not all
of the 269th soldiers returned
with their unit on that flight
that left Kuwait early Monday
morning. About 23 soldiers,
three from the Well Drillers
Unit and about 20 from the
269th, were left behind to
load equipment for the trip
back to Live Oak, according
to family members. Those
soldiers are expected to fol-
low quickly, perhaps within
the next two weeks. Florida
National Guard Chief of Pub-
lic Affairs Lt. Col. Ron Tittle
confirmed Monday morning
.th unit was scheduled to ar-
rive Tuesday evening first at
Hunter Army Airbase in Sa-
vannah and then be bused to
Fort Stewart about two hours
away. The Democrat is await-
ing confirmation on the date
of the 269th unit return to
Live Oak. Although a wel-
come home event for the unit
is being planned for Saturday,
April 17, that date possibly
will change, as has been
stressed for the past month.

269th is home!
They came from every-
where. They were every-
where. The people. The flags,
the heart-warming signs lov-
ingly crafted. by families
whdse loved ones had been
overseas in war-torn Iraq for
more than year. Yes, the scene
was set for April 18 for the re-
turn of the Florida National
Guard's 269th Engineer Com-
pany based in Live Oak and
all but 25 of the unit did re-
turn home, but thousands
upon thousands of people
come to Live Oak to let them
know how proud Americans
are of them. Under a beauti-
ful, clear, sunny sky and led
by more than a dozen law en-
forcement officials from that
many agencies in North Flori-
da, two buses loaded with
members of the unit arrived at
about 12 p.m. Sunday at the


old train depot as friends and
family standing on US 129
started screaming and cheer-
ing a welcome that could be
heard blocks away. Soldiers
literally jumped from the bus,
looking about to see ifa loved
one was near by. Some were,
some were farther away
awaiting their first glance of
their returning soldier. Amid
tears of joy, the soldiers got
hugs, handshakes, did a few
quick radio interviews and
then snapped to attention in
formation as they moved out
to complete the last leg of
their tour of duty that lasted
for more than year serving in
Iraq.

MAY
269th's last soldiers
return to America
No homecoming event
will be held at their request
On Sunday evening the last
of the 269th Engineer Com-
pany and Well Drillers De-
tachment returned to Ameri-
can soil to the delight of their
families. Although there were
only 10 Florida soldiers on
that plane with the 269th, it
didn't matter to the wives,
children and parents of those
soldiers who were at Fort
Stewart to greet them. The
soldiers had been in America
nearly 12 hours before they
could reach Fort Stewart to
see their families due to flight
scheduling. Local soldiers in
the group have asked that no
homecoming celebration be
given for their return. The sol-
diers will return home indi-
vidually with family mem-
bers, as they requested. After
three days of going through
paperwork, physical and oth-
er military obligations to get
mustered out of the regular
Army and become a National
Guardsman again, the sol-
diers are scheduled to return
tomorrow, May 6, to their
homes.
Turn-out for city
elections is very low
City Council elections for
the city of Live Oak last night
went smoothly with 293 vot-
ers turning out to vote for
their, favorite candidates in
two city districts. Winning the
two City Council seats were
incumbent District 2 City
Councilman Bennie Thomas
and incumbent District 3 City
Councilman Ken Duce.
Thomas, an 18-year City
Councilman representing Dis-
trict 2, received a total of 88
votes to defeat his opponent,
the Rev. Tommie Jefferson,
who had a total of 53 votes.
Duce, who ran two years ago
for the unexpired 2-year term
of now mayor Sonny Nobles
and won, regained his seat,
this time for a 4-year term,
defeating challenger Don
Allen 117 to 35 votes. In the
District 2 race, Jefferson re-
ceived 50 votes, while
Thomas received 73. Jeffer-
son had three absentees while
Thomas had 15. In the Dis-
trict 3 race, Allen had 26
votes with Duce getting 97.
Allen got nine absentees
while Duce got 20.

-2-year drowns
in family pool
In a tragic event this week a
2-year-old boy drowned in the
family pool. Dylan Potter, 2,
son of David and Stacy Potter
of 7128 Wiggins Road, was
found face down Tuesday,
May 25, by his 6-year-old
brother in the above ground
pool in the family's yard. The
victim's brother jumped into
the pool and brought his
younger brother to the surface
and pushed him onto the steps
adjacent to the pool as he sent
his 4-year-old brother to get
their mother, who was inside
the house, according to a re-
port filed by the Suwannee
County Sheriffs Office.

JUNE
Former President Reagan
passes quietly
He had an unsinkable opti-
mism and he transformed the
country and the world, chang-
ing the self-image Americans
had of themselves after Viet-
nam, Watergate, and what pre-
vious President Jimmy Carter
called a "malaise" and in set-
ting in motion forces that
crumbled the Soviet Union.
That's the way some Republi-
cans remember Ronald Rea-
gan, America's 40th president,
who died Saturday at age 93
after a long battle with
Alzheimer's Disease. In 1994,
Reagan informed the nation
by letter that he had
Alzheimer's disease. A pas-
sage from his note read,
"When the Lord calls me
home, whenever that day may
be, I will leave with the great-
est love for this country of
ours and eternal optimism for
its future."
Nearly $2 million in
cash seized on 1-10
Nearly $2 million in cold,
hard cash was found stashed
in the cargo area of a tractor-
trailer on Interstate 10 early


yesterday by Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services (FDACS) of-
ficers. The question now is,
whose money is it, why was
nearly $2 million in cash' be-
ing stored in the truck, and
who will end up with it! The
truck, transporting television
sets, was heading to Califor-
nia when officers with the
FDACS searched the tractor-
trailer shortly before 5 a.m. at
the station west of Live Oak
due to irregularities on its bill
of lading. Interspersed among
the TV sets were two large
duffel bags containing $1.895
million in cash in various de-
nominations ranging from $5
to $100 bills, all wrapped in
shrink-wrapped clear plastic.
The bags were so heavy, each
bag required two men to haul
it off the truck.
O'Brien man drowns
in private pond
An 83-year-old O'Brien res-
ident was found dead in a
pond about 100 yards from his
home late June 8 on 73rd
Road. No foul play is suspect-
ed. Wayne L. Hayes, 21225
73rd Road, O'Brien, was
found in the pond late Tues-
day evening by his grandson.
Hayes' wife, Dorothy, had
sent the grandson to search for
his grandfather after she no-
ticed Hayes had not been seen
since about 3:30 p.m., accord-

idents' complaints in the
113th Road area of unex-
plained sickness and high lev-
els of arsenic in the bodies of
some, the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
and Florida Health Depart-
ment have concluded there is
no smoking gun connecting
those illnesses to an unli-
censed dump in that area and
that multiple investigations
and testing of the area and
residents do not show any-
thing highly unusual. This
message was given to the me-
dia first Wednesday night and
then later individually and
overall during an "informa-
tion" session held at Suwan-
nee River Water Management
District's board meeting room
with the state agencies, State
Rep. Dwight Stansel, State
Sen. Nancy Argenziano,
Suwannee County Commis-
sion 'Chairman Jesse
Caruthers and residents of the
northwestern Suwannee
County neighborhood.

Local woman
killed on SR 51
A 70-year-old Suwannee
County woman died as a re-
sult of a two-car crash July 3
on SR 51. Imogene Downing,
70, 5864 221st Road, was
leaving the Suwannee County
recycling site on SR 51 when
.the accident happened. Ac-
cording to the Florida High-
way Patrol, Downing, driving
a 1973 Ford pickup truck,
made a left turn onto SR 51
from the recycling site and
traveled into the path of a
northbound 1998 GMC SUV
driven by Stewart Clark
Retherford, 20, of 504 4th
Ave., Wellborn, where the two
.. cjllidqd4, Downing suffered
n�,rahead`trauma'rin the accident,
SrFhyileRelherford and his pas-
senger, Dustin Price, 23, 428
Lee Ave., were not injured.
No one in the accident was
wearing their seat belts when
the accident happened, ac-
cording to FHP.
Fire board approved,
members ready to begin
It's been a long time coming
and a tough road to travel for
all concerned, but this week
the. Suwannee County Fire
Board (SCFB) finally became
a reality when the Suwannee
County Commission -unani-
mously voted to accept five
board members and one alter-
nate and set the stage for
changes in the volunteer fire
department service for the
county. Interim chairman
Walt Sage said after the com-
mission meeting that he is try-
ing to find the right place to
meet since members on the
board come from every corner
of the county. "We may not
serve but six months after
they see what we're going to
bring back to them," said a
smiling Sage of the commis-
sioners. Serving on the SCFB
with Sage, of the Ranchettes
VFD, will be Cleatos Mc-
Cook of Falmouth VFD, Jim
O'Neill of West Suwannee
VFD, Paul Gamble of Lurav-
ille VFD and Bill Walters of


Wellborn VFD. Ronald Cook
of McAlpin VFD will be the
alternate. The board members
will serve terms of two years
and three years to stagger the
changes of board members,
should any current board
member resign or be replaced
by the County Commission.

A 19-year-old Suwannee
County teen was critically
burned in a truck crash July �8

to the Florida Highway Pa-
trol, Donald Lee "Trey"

St. was driving a 2000 GM(

from US 27 east of Branford
all the way north to Blue Lake
Road ended when the driver
rolled the rented SUV and es-
caped on foot. A woman po-
lice said was a passenger in
the SUV was treated at the
scene for minor injuries. She
was later interviewed at the
Suwannee County Jail and
then released.
County seeks answers
why prison has not been

,.'After years-'of controversy
oversiting a state ,prison in
Suwannee County, the issue
was put to rest several years
ago when the county pur-
chased a suitable site and
gave it to the state to build the
prison on. The state in turn re-
funded half of the money to
Suwannee County in a friend-
ly gesture. While county offi-
cials and prospective employ-
ees anxiously awaited word
on when the multi-million
dollar prison would be built,
time slipped away into years
as the Florida Department of
Corrections told officials
Suwannee County would
have the next sited prison.
Now, County Commissioners
have decided to aggressively
seek a state prison to be con-
structed here. If that doesn't
work, Commissioner Doug
Udell wants the land back and
plans to pursue a federal
prison.
Local businessman Dan
Chandler will be greatly
missed
Services will be held this
morning at 10 a.m. at First
Presbyterian Church on White
Avenue for a man Suwannee
countians have known
through the years as a good
community servant and excel-
lent businessman, Daniel F.
"Dan" Chandler, 89, of Live


Oak.'
Local man charged with
attempted homicide
A local man arrested July
27 and charged with attempt-
ed homicide and carjacking
after another man was stabbed
repeatedly. The charges were
filed against Roderick Leron
Stoudemire, 21, of 210 Home
Ave. after the Suwannee
County Sheriffs Office was
called to Shands at Live Oak
in regards to a man who had
been stabbed.
Local woman
killed while filling
dive tank with oxygen
A steamy hot summer after-
noon in Suwannee County
turned into a nightmare July
27 when a local woman was
filling a dive tank at Cave Ex-
cursions Dive Shop in Lurav-


Sara Frances "Fran" Slaughter

killing the woman and injur-
ing three others. Sara Frances

her body by the full impact of
the explosion, suffering mas-
sive abdominal trauma, ac-
cording to a report by Suwan-
nee County Sheriffs Deputy

549 pounds of pot seized
on 1-10 valued at $600,000,
officers say
Quick-thinking Florida De-
partment, of Agriculture Law
Enforcement officers last
week discovered a hidden
compartment in a truck on In-
terstate 10 where 549.2
pounds of marijuana was
found and confiscated. The
$600,000 seizure took place
after the eastbound rental-
type truck failed to stop for
inspection at the eastbound
inspection station near the
Suwannee River in Suwannee
County at about 10:55 p.m.
July 30, according to Major
Jerry Bryan, chief of uniform

Ivan the Terrible strikes
Florida/Alabama
SHurricane Ivan, dubbed
"Ivan the Terrible," has lived
up to its name as it made
landfall early yesterday in
the Pensacola area, leaving
streets flooded, windows
broken out, street light de-
molished and at least one
brick building looking like a
bomb had exploded inside.
Locally yesterday the
Suwannee County area was
tnder a tornado watch and
Strong thunderstorm warn-
tngs. Although local resi-
dents are sad that others are
experiencing such devasta-
tion, they are breathing a
sigh of relief this terrible
hurricane did not come
through Suwannee County
as had been expected several
days prior to it making land-
fall. After Hurricanes
Charley and Frances,
Su% annee countians are
)ready for some relief, no rain
and clear skies. Suwannee


County Emergency Manage-
ment Director Johnny Woo-
ley and his staff are breath-
ing a sigh of relief also. 'We
have fortunately dodged two
bullets here recently with
major hurricanes hitting the
state," Wooley said. "Our
state is in a major state of
crisis, and we obviously
have another hurricane
threatening the state. Every-
one should continue to mon-
itor their weather service as
hurricanes do not, as we've
seen, go where they are sup-
posed to go," Wooley
warned. "We will continue to
monitor the rising of the
rivers and those in low-lying
areas should also do the
same."
City to fix flooding with
SRWMD and FDOT help
After a lifetime of flood-
ing on east Howard Street in
front of where the Suwannee
Democrat has been located
for the past eight years, the
city of Live Oak has secured
funding from the state and
Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District to alleviate
the problem. Work is expect-
ed to begin on Conner Street
that runs east and west along
the CSX tracks behind the
Democrat and other busi-
nesses along this street.
Once problems are corrected
there, more work will be
done on east Howard Street
(US 90).

RESCUE OPERATION GOES SMOOTH AS SILK: There's no good time to have a heart attack, but this California man, pictured on the
stretcher being lowered on a ladder, can be thankful he was in Live Oak when he had his. The man, estimated to be at least 6 ft. 6
inches tall, was safely removed from the eastbound Amtrak that was headed to Miami Monday afternoon at US 129 by Suwannee
County EMS, Suwannee County Fire, Live Oak Fire, Live Oak Police and others who stopped to help while a train employee, left, watch-
es in awe the smooth operation that may have saved the passenger's life. Immediately after the man was loaded in an ambulance, the
train pulled away and continued on its way while the ill passenger was taken to Shands at Live Oak. - Photo: Yvette Hannon


wet reminder that many re-
member today, Hurricane
Frances, which hit the Flori-
da east coast early Saturday
and was downgraded to a
tropical storm by the time it
hit North Florida twice, slow-
ly crept across the county,
leaving flooded streets, yards
and other areas, downed trees,
debris strewn everywhere and
more than half the county
without electricity for days.
After it struck North Florida
Sunday evening, it moved off
shore into the Gulf then struck
land again at St. Marks, bring-
ing with it more winds and rain
to Suwannee County by Mon-
day evening. And, in the mid-
dle of Hurricane Frances, the
Suwannee County Sheriffs
Office lost its communica-
tions and had to operate on
several school channels and
by cell phones. That loss has
created a situation where the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement came in Sept. 7
and set up a complete com-
munications system to see
the county through until the
very serious matter can be
addressed, said Suwannee
County Coordinator/Emer-
gency Management Director
Johnny Wooley. Still work-
ing on a limping system
Tuesday morning, Sept. 7,
the county was hit by flood-
ing and numerous vehicle
crashes on Interstate 10, in-
cluding an eight-car pileup
and a three car-wreck on
133rd Road, all at the same
time with limited communi-
cations.
Rotary to build picnic
pavilion
Rotary International will
soon be celebrating its 100th
anniversary, and Live Oak
Rotarians will celebrating by
building a huge picnic pavil-
ion at the First Federal
Sportsplex. Live Oak Rotari-
an Ronnie Poole was a the


Live Oak City Council bud-
get hearing to make sure the
city had included Rotary in
the 2004-2005 fiscal year
budget for the project. Ro-
tary had asked for $20,000
from the city, as it did other
local agencies and govern-
ment entities to assist in the
project to benefit the com-
munity. Poole said Rotary
International will be 100
years old this year and the
local Rotarians, as well as
Rotarians around the world,
have been asked to do some-
thing impressive for their
communities to celebrate.
Live 'Oak Rotarians have
asked for and gotten a com-
mitment from the Suwannee
County Commission and the
Tourist Development Coun-
cil for $20,000 each to assist
in building a covered and
screened, 40 x 60 picnic
pavilion at the First Federal
Sportsplex. The city was also
asked to provide $20,000,
but chose to give $10,00
from the upcoming fiscal
year's budget. Poole said lo-
cal Rotarians will raise
$40,000 themselves to help
build the $95,000 building.
"We would like to see you do
$10,000 next year," Poole
told the Council.
Councilman Ken Duce
said some people had told
him they don't want the city
to spend tax dollars for the
project. However, the city
unanimously agreed to pro-
vide the $10,000 this year.
Tony Cameron is new

Dirt from contaminated
site causing commissioners
concern
The possibility that contam-
inated dirt may have been re-
moved from' the'1 Sttwihnee
County Public W'orks ,Depart-
ment's fuel spill cleanup at
13150 80th Terrace next to the
Suwannee County Airport and
dumped on 153rd Road is
causing county commission-
ers grave concern. And, it's
causing residents in that area
equal concern. The matter
came up Oct. 19 when Public
Works Director Jerry Sikes
brought it up at the night com-
mission meeting. Sikes said
dirt that was cleared by
MACTEC Engineering and
Consulting Company of Talla-
hassee, a company the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection chose over one the
county wanted for the cleanup
job, was "non-contaminated."
Sikes distributed a letter. from
MACTEC that said "All soil
removed from the site (Public
Works cleanup site) as "clean"
was confirmed with off-site
laboratory analytical data."
At least some of that soil was
delivered to a site at Railroad
Street and 153rd Road (Mt.
Olive Church of Christ Road)
west of Live Oak where some
residents believe the soil may
be contaminated.
City flooding issues
considered
Flooding is still a big issue
with the city of Live Oak but

YEAR IN RE
HEADLINING SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT STORIES AND PHOTOS FROM 2004


EW


Bob Farley is bringing in the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation to assist the city,
along with Suwannee River
Water Management District,
in getting a handle on the
flood area and how to correct
the problem. And, one city
resident was on hand Oct. 12
to suggest to the city that her
flooding problems in Sher-
wood Forest are because a
main drain has been sealed up
by city workers, causing her
home to flood during Hurri-
cane Jeanne.
Early voting begins
Monday at 10 a.m.
Voters can get an early start
by showing up Monday, Oct.
18 at 10 a.m. and casting their
vote for the Nov. 2 general
election. That's right, early
voting is something new this
year that many voters experi-
ence in the primary Aug. 30.
Voting gets underway at the
Suwannee County Supervisor
of Elections Office on Pine
Avenue in downtown Live
Oak at 10 a.m. and continues
each day from 8:30 a.m. until
5 p.m Monday through Fri-
day. On Saturday Oct. 23 and
30 the office will be open
from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. to al-
low voters to stop by and cast
their early votes.
Suwannee overflowing
The Suwannee and Santa
Fe rivers are rising, homes are
flooded and every public boat
ramp on these rivers is closed
for the duration. In an effort to
control the flooded rivers and
keep damage and theft to a
minimum, the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement has
set up a command post in
Branford next to City Hall,
and in Mayo and Fanning
Springs to assist counties dur-
ing this emergency. Suwannee
*C6'uit C6mmissioners voted
Oct. 5 to recommend that all
who reside in the flood evac-
uate immediately. Officials
estimate that at least 300
homes are flooded at this time
in Suwannee County along
both rivers. That number will


grow as the river continues to
flood, according Suwannee
County Coordinator/Emer-
gency Management Director
Johnny Wooley. Suwannee
Springs in Suwannee County
at US 129 north is expected to
crest today at 71.3 feet. Flood
stage at Suwannee Springs is
67 feet.
ACV to launch $5 million
additions campaign
During a gala dinner this
week Suwannee Valley com-
munity leaders were intro-
duced to Advent Christian
Village's 90th Anniversary
Capital Campaign where $5
million will be pledged for
new construction and renova-
tion. During the, dinner Oct. 5
at the ACV's Phillips Dining
Room, ACV President Jim
Humbles announced the $5
million campaign is already
well under way with $3.8 mil-
lion pledged, leaving $1.2
million remaining to be
raised. Humbles revealed ar-
chitectural drawings for two
new buildings and also reno-
vations to Phillips and Smith
Centers. The centerpiece of
the campaign is a new
Copeland Clinic located adja-
cent to Good Samaritan Cen-
ter and Dacier Manor. The en-
larged clinic will include a
cardiac testing room, in addi-
tion to the usual x-ray, Dexa-
scan testing and an expanded
dental clinic.

NOVEMBER
, Republicans take
the White House
- Bush to serve four
more years
It took until the next day
but the results are finally in
from the general election Nov.
2 and Republican President
George W. Bush will lead the
nation for another four years.
In Suwannee County where
72 percent of the registered
voters turned out, Bush was
the favorite son by a vote of
11,145 for Bush to 4,513 for
,Kerry. Suwannee County has
a total of 21,924 registered


TEEN HONORS MAN WHO GAVE SO MUCH: Paige Thomas may
be just a young teenager, but she's got a lot on the ball, including
a burning desire to.honor aman who for the past six years bought
her entry in the Suwannee Valley Youth Livestock Show and Sale.
To accomplish her goal of creating a memorial for Wayne Nobles,
a generous man who helped youth at every opportunity who died.
last year of pancreatic cancer, she took her project to the highest
level recently, the Suwannee County Commission. Commission-
ers assisted her financially in achieving her goals to give to the

voters. Of that number,
13,922 are registered as De-
mocrats and 5,894 as Repub-
licans. There are 2,308 regis-
tered as "other." Bush's chal-
lenger, Democrat John Kerry
of Massachusetts, gave his
concession speech on the af-
ternoon after the election.
Kerry had been told by exit
polls taken at polling places
around the country that he
would be the next president, a
promise that never came true.
Shortly after Kerry gave his
speech, President Bush gave
his victory speech.
Judge orders chemical
castration for second
sex offender
SThe message is out - it's not
safe to be a child molester in
Suwannee County. This mes-
sage was strongly given to
convicted child sex molester
Harold Ray Boone this week
by Third Circuit Judge
Thomas Kennon when Judge
Kennon sentenced Boone to
chemical castration along
with four consecutive life sen-
tences. Boone is the second
convicted child molester in
Suwannee County within the
past month to receive a chem-
ical castration sentence along
with multiple life sentences.
The.prosecutor, Third Circuit
Assistant State Attorney
David Fina, had asked for the
sentencing in both cases.
Boone was recently convicted
by a Suwannee County jury of
10 counts of capitol sexual
battery on a child under the
age of 12, one count of at-
tempted lewd exhibition in
the presence of a child, one
count of lewd molestation on
a child, one count of sexual
performance by a child, two
counts of lewd conduct on a
child and possession of child
pornography. This conviction
came after a relative of one of
Boone's victims discovered a
videotape of Boone engaging
in sexual acts with children
and turned it over to authori-
ties. One of the children who
had been molested brought
the videotape to her uncle,
who "plugged in the video
and got the shock of his life,"
Fina said.
Clyde's Place
seized by feds
It took years, but several
murders and dozens and
dozens of drug arrests later,
Clyde's Place at 1700 Rail-
road Avenue will no longer
be a thorn in the side of law
enforcement after federal
marshals seized it yesterday
at about 10:45 a.m. With an
entourage of Live Oak Po-
lice Chief Nolan McLeod,
LOPD Capt. Buddy
Williams, Suwannee County
Sheriff Alton K. "Al"
Williams Jr., Suwannee
County Drug Task Force
members LOPD Investigator
Aubrey Land, Florida De-
partment of Law Enforce-
ment Special Agent Robin
McDaniel and Sheriffs Of-
fice Sgt. Robbie Sammons,
US Marshals Don Exum and
Ken Staub drove to the bar
where a pile of trash awaited
them at the door. Nearby sat
a barrel filled with empty al-
cohol bottles not far from
signs that read "no loiter-
ing," and "No Drugs Al-
lowed on Premises." After
easily breaking through the
door, the US Marshals
checked the building before
having it boarded up and
signs placed there that for-
bids anyone from trespass-
ing under penalty of federal
arrest and imprisonment.

HONORING A FALLEN OFFICER: These law enforcement officers proudly stood as honor guards
outside First Baptist Church of Live Oak Dec. 27 when services for a fellow officer, Josh King, 31,
were held. They were joined by dozens of other officers from Suwannee, Hamilton, Columbia and
Taylor counties to participate in the services at the church and later for the interment.

upcoming retirement
After more than 40 years in
law enforcement and eight
years as sheriff of Suwannee
County, Alton K. "Al"
Williams Jr. was honored Dec.
28 at the Suwannee County
Courthouse upon his impend-
ing retirement. Also being

road deputies during
Williams' administration.

Group hopes to
bring Walgreens
to old Kmart site
A development group is
hoping to bring Walgreens to
the old Kmart site on US 129
in the near future. The only
problem standing in its way
may be the Live Oak City
Council. Columbia Investors,
a group consisting of business
people in North Florida that
includes Realtor Daniel
Crapps, brought a plln 'to the
City Council last week.
Local man charged with
murder in North Carolina
Live Oak Police have ar-
rested a Live Oak man on a
North Carolina murder war-
rant. Randy Jerome Locklear,
53, of 520 Scriven Ave., was
arrested Friday, Dec. 17 at
about 12:26 p.m. at the Reddy
Freddy on Walker Avenue by
LOPD Det. Chuck Tompkins.
Tompkins arrested Locklear
after receiving assistance
from several citizens in locat-
ing the suspect, LOPD said.
Locklear is charged with the
murder of his wife Katherine,
in Maxton, N.C. in Robeson
County about 4-5 months ago,
LOPD said. Maxton is located
near Laurinburg, N.C.

on a charge of solicitation to
commit murder. Lundy is 'a
Live Oak businessman in the
septic tank business, accord-
ing to authorities. Lundy was
arrested in Suwannee County
Tuesday evening and booked

Child dies in fiery
two-vehicle crash
A three-year-old McAlpin
boy died Dec. 13 in a fiery
truck and car crash when the
vehicles hit head-on on CR 49
at 200th Street at about 4:25
p.m. Monday, Dec. 13. And,
those at the scene said it was a
miracle that anyone survived
this horrific crash. Several
passersby stopped and helped
get the drivers and two other
children, including a baby, out
of the vehicles, which erupted
into flames and were totally
consumed. The Florida High-
way Patrol said a three-year-
old in the left rear seat of the
Dodge Durango could not be
rescued due to the flames and
died in the fire that consumed
both vehicles. The three-year-
old was identified as Vaughn
Alexander Simmons, three
years and 10 months old, who
resided at 17611 53rd Rd,
McAlpin, with his parents,
Amy and Vaugh Simmons Jr.,
according to FHP and the
Suwannee County Sheriffs
Office. The two other children,
their mother, who was the dri-
ver of the car they were in and
the driver of the truck were all
seriously injured but survived
due to the efforts of three
men, one who was the first on
the scene and performed hero-
ically to save their lives.

S The Florida Department of
QHealth (DOH) recently an-
nounced that Florida
,SHOTS, the State Health On-
line Tracl.ingS S/stem. for.im-
bmunizatiqns. is now available
lto private health care
providers throughout the
,.state.
. "The growing complexity
bof immunization schedules
,makes it difficult for health
.care providers and parents to
.keep track of which vaccines
,are due and when," said DOH
,Secretary John O. Agwunobi,
bM.D, M.B.A., M.P.H. "We
bs.tand committed to providing
.the resources and efforts
,needed to educate on the im-
,portance of early childhood
Immunization, as well as the
[benefits Florida SHOTS pro-
,vides in this endeavor."
Florida SHOTS was devel-
epped by the DOH to increase
.,childhood immunization lev-


els and eliminate vaccine-
preventable diseases. The
Florida Legislature autho-
rized the free, statewide elec-
tronic immunization registry,
which,is, beneficial .to both
parents and providers. Addi-
tioially, Florida SHOTS
helps interpret complex im-
munization schedules, and
will soon help manage vac-
cine inventories and generate
reminder recalls.
All children need 18 to 23
immunizations by age six to
protect them from serious but
preventable diseases. The
goal of Florida Shots is to
meet this challenge by in-
creasing the number of chil-
dren age 0 to 6 enrolled in a
fully functional immuniza-
tion registry to 95 percent by
the year 2010.
The registry is accessed via
the Internet through the
Florida SHOTS Web-based


system. Enrollment and on-
going support for providers
are provided by a full-time
staff, as well as statewide
trainers and regional coordi-
nators. , .,
"The entire Florida
SHOTS staff is firmly com-
mitted to maintaining suc-
cessful public and private
partnerships for system par-
ticipation," said Florida
SHOTS Director Susan Lin-
cicome, "It is very rewarding
to be part of a project that
will have a positive impact
on the health of our most vul-
nerable and valuable re-
source-children."

Florida SHOTS, or to enroll
in the system, visit

So....where did you come from?


I'\e had a fc-% people coin-
iIinl on ni\ onrguis -ul.ui'e I slart-
ed writing this column. Some
seem think I came from up north.
I have never lived up north. My
father was in the Marine Corps,
and I've lived everywhere but up
north. I even spent 15 years in
Hawaii. But, for the last 21 years,
I have lived in Central and North
Florida. Sinp-emaqedto Live
Oak, I've discovered there are
few folks who live here over the
age of 30, who actually were
born here. So, where did you
come from?
One common origin that ab-
solutely baffles me is Davie.
There are hundreds of people that.
live in Suwannee County who
came from Davie. I know this be-
cause the man of the house is
from Davie, and he knows a
good many of them. He was born
in Dade County, but worked cat-
tle and lived in Davie back when


it \.\is co%% counn.
N la\ be it's Kbc.iise tie ilan of
the houiise originates firm Dai ie
ithat I'%e co'ile to realize there are
so mania t insplanted Da\ ie-ites
here in Su'an1nee Coiun'. The
really weird thing is, the Davie
migration seems to have originat-
ed in a one-by-one manner. What
I mean by that is, all these folks
just up and decided to move to
Suwannee County one at a time.
I've spoken to many and that
seems to betieth . ay it~ happened.
There was no massnmigration.
One day, each transplant woke
up and said to him or herself, "I
think I'll move to Live Oak."
And here they are.
One transplant told me. she
thinks they started moving up
here when Davie stopped being
cow country and started being an
extension of Ft. Lauderdale. This
lady was once in the rent-a-horse
business in Davie.
A few at a time, they trickled
north and ended up here. With
them, they brought hay business-
es, cattle ranches, roping savvy,

Garden Club celebrates Mardi Gras


Yvette Hannon
Democrat Reporter

The Live Oak Garden Club
held its annual candlelight
dinner at the clubhouse Jan.
14. Dawn Strickland deco-
rated the dinner tables with a
Mardi Gras theme, complete
with Mardi Gras beads,
masks, coins and candles.
Vice President Velma
Cooksey was in charge of
programs and members were
treated to some down-home
foot stompin fiddlin' music
by Patt Slaughter, Eilene Box
and Jan Pierce on fiddles,
Margaret Howard on har-
monica and Nancy Allen on

piano.
Jean Howell and her
helpers provided a delicious
cajun meal complete with
jumbalaya and key lime pie.
Co-President Ella Carter wel-
comed the members and their
guests and thanked all the
members for all their hard
work.
"We are celebrating a col-
orful affair with the theme of
Mardi Gras, even though it is
the wrong time of the year!"
Carter said. Carter quoted
some facts on the origination
of Mardi Gras and some of
the interesting data regarding
this southern festival.
The garden club member-
ship includes 29 night


bloomer members and 52 day
bloomers. Sheryl Kirby an-
nounced it was time to take
calladium orders again and
reported that last year mem-
bers sold over 27,000 bulbs.
Gwyn Herrington lit a can-
dle in memory of past mem-
bers stating, "These members
were symbols of life whose
love was shown through their
appreciation of beauty."
New members Lisa Long,
Jean Cheeseman, Linda Roui
and Kay Boatright were in-
ducted into the garden club
by Gwyn Herrington. Each
member was pinned with a
crocheted yellow rose and
given a beautiful rose to com-
plete the ceremony.

A NEW WRINKLE IN
BOTOX INTEREST
In recent years, Botox, the
commercial name for botulinum
toxin A, has received a great deal
of attention for its ability to
temporarily remove wrinkles by
paralyzing the muscles that cause
expression lines. While women
seem to comprise the majority of
Botox users, men are fast gaining
ground. Part of the appeal of
Botox to men is that they do not
have to miss work, and the therapy
requires almost no recovery time.
On the other hand, recent research
shows that men require doses that
are about twice as high as those
that women receive in order to
achieve the desired results. Prior to
this study, nearly all of the studies
on Botox, to date, had involved
female patients.

Get in the know about



'Groundhog Day


SGroundhog Day on Febru-
aary 2 is centered around a
rcenturies-long legend: If the
,groundhog sees his shadow,
it's six more weeks of winter
*and he retreats into his hole.
If he doesn't see his shadow,
spring is on its way and he re-
ni.-iii above ground.
SThe tradition dates back to
the day of early Christians in
.Europe. For centuries, the
,clergy blessed candles and
'distributed them to people on
Candlemas Day, marking a
milestone in the winter
weather. Romans brought the
tradition to the Germans, who
decided that if the sun came
"but on Candlemas Day, a
*hedgehog would cast a shad-
pw ... meaning that there
|Would be six more weeks of
,ad weather.
SPennsylvania's earliest set-
tlers were Germans who
Tound a proliferation of
groundhogs in the state. They


likened the
groundhog to the
European hedge-
hog and contin-
ued the legend
that if the sun came
out on February 2
the groundhog would
see its shadow :iiid
there would be i.;
more weeks of win-
ter.


Punxsutawney,
Pennsylvania,
is the site of the first North
American Groundhog Day
and also home to one of the
most popular groundhogs in
the world, Punxsutawney
Phil. Various "Phils" have
played meteorologist since
1886, the date of the first
recorded Groundhog Day in
the area. Early observances
were conducted privately in
the woods near the town. The
day gained widespread fame
with the 1990s film,


. -- -2-


- -.


"Ground-
hog Day," starring Bill Mur-
ray. And Phil himself has be-
come a pop culture icon of
sorts, having visited former
President Ronald Reagan arid
appeared on The Oprah Win-
frey Show. Today, tens of
thousands of visitors from
around the world visit Punx-
sutawney each year to await
Phil's meteorological verdict.

GAME OF THE WEEK
Kentucky at Arkansas


Illustration by Bruce Plante � 2005



'Cats face hopeful Hogs


Sn the fourth game of a brutal stretch of five road games that
. will determine whether the University of Kentucky will win
the Southeastern Conference championship outright, the
Wildcats visit Arkansas on Saturday in a battle of the top
defensive teams in the league.
Kentucky, the only team left undefeated in conference play, is
tops in the SEC in scoring defense (57.6 points per game) and tied
for first in field-goal percentage defense (38.6). Only two of the
Wildcats' first 16 opponents shot more than 50 percent, and
Kentucky gave up only 50 points against Ole Miss on Jan. 19, the
fewest points scored by an opponent in nearly two years.
Arkansas will be back home at Bud Walton Arena, where it
snapped a four-game conference losing streak with a 95-59 victory
over Auburn last Saturday. The Razorbacks, who are looking to re-
emerge as a contender after going 4-12 in the SEC last year, held
the Tigers to 35.6 percent shooting and forced 18 turnovers.
Arkansas is tied with the Wildcats as the SEC's top perimeter
defense, limiing iru opponenri, to 28.8 perLent ol their 3-point
sho0i The Razorback.s :lso kad the league In biI.ked shots, with,
just over six per game, and steals, with more than 10 per game.
Stan Heath's squad has been unable to beat conference foes on
the road, and an upset over Kentucky is crucial to Arkansas'
NCAA tournament hopes. The Razorbacks have to prove that they
are capable of playing with the nation's best.

Kentucky at Arkansas
- Records: Kentucky 14-2 (5-0 SEC East); Arkansas 14-5 (2-4
SEC West). N Coaches: Kentucky's Tubby Smith (329-116);
Arkansas' Stan Heath (65-46).N Tip-off: 2:30 p.m. CT Saturday.
0 TV: CBS.
Keys for Kentucky: Knock down 3's. The Wildcats missed
their first 12 attempts from behind the arc in a 53-50 win over Ole
Miss on Jan. 19, but hit a season-high 11 3-pointers in last
Saturday's 31-point win over LSU . .. More minutes from
starting center Randolph Morris, who is averaging 15.8 minutes
per game in conference play.
Keys for Arkansas: Ronnie Brewer has to stay active on the
defensive end. Brewer is averaging a league-high 3.5 steals in six
SEC games.... Don't let Kentucky run away in the second half.
The Wildcats have outscored their opponents in the second half by
average of 11.1 points.


The Rest of the Matchups

South Carolina at Florida
B Records: South Carolina 10-6 (2-3 SEC East); Florida 11-4 (3-1
SEC East).N Coaches: South Carolina's Dave Odom (325-222);
Florida's Billy Donovan (215-108).M Tip-off: 1 p.m. ET
Saturday.i TV: Jefferson Pilot.
Keys for South Carolina: Compete on the boards. Florida is
averaging 38.5 rebounds per game, while the Gamecocks are
averaging a league-worst 27.8 rebounds in conference games.
'.,.. Feed the ball to Carlos Powell, who is shooting a conference-
best 65.5 percent from the floor on just 11 attempts per game.
Keys for Florida: Someone to help Anthony Roberson to carry
the load. After back-to-back 30-point performances, Roberson was
9-of-26, including 5-of-18 from 3-point range, in an 83-76
overtime loss to Tennessee on Jan. 19.... Take care of the
basketball. The Gators are averaging 15.5 assists compared to 16.0
turnovers in SEC action.


Mississippi State at LSU'
E Records: Mississippi State 16-4 (4-2 SEC West); LSU 9-6 (2-2
SEC West). E Coaches: Mississippi State's Rick Stansbury
(142-68); LSU's John Brady (218-175). Tip-off: 2 p.m. CT
Saturday. B TV: Jefferson Pilot.
Keys for Mississippi State: Avoid foul trouble. Lawrence
Roberts was on the bench during a 16-5 run against South
Carolina after picking up his fourth foul.... Jamall Edmondson,
who is back in reserve role after two starts at shooting guard, has
to provide energy. Edmondson hit 3 of his 6 shots in the South
Carolina game and showed outstanding hustle.
Keys for LSU: Brandon Bass-and Glen Davis must win the
battle inside against the Bulldogs' Roberts and Marcus
Campbell. ... Better shot selection. The Tigers hit 5 of 22
3-pointers (22.7 percent) in last Saturday's loss at Kentucky.

Ole Miss.at Vanderbilt
e Records: Ole Miss 11-8 (2-4 SEC We.sti, Vanderbilt I I-7 i (3 .v.!
SEC East).B Coaches: Ole Miss' Rod Barnes (124-84);
Vanderbilt's Kevin Stallings (219-139). E Tip-off: 3 p.m. CT
Saturday. N TV: None.
Keys for Ole Miss: Finish. The Rebels let halftime leads
against Kentucky and Alabama slip away last week. ... Employ a
zone defense and make the Commodores chuck it from the
outside. Stallings said after his team's loss to Florida on Jan. 15
that they had no inside presence.
Keys for Vanderbilt: Mario Moore has to find his touch. Moore
has hit 10 of 38 attempts in Vanderbilt's last three games, all
conference losses. ... Be tough on the defensive boards. Georgia
grabbed 14 offensive rebounds and got 14 second-chance points
last Saturday.

Tennessee at Auburn
0 Records: Tennessee 10-8 (3-2 SEC East); Auburn 9-8 (0-4 SEC
West).E Coaches: Tennessee's Buzz Peterson (162-100);
Auburn's Jeff Lebo (124-71). Tip-off: 5 p.m. CT Saturday.
S TV: Fox Sports Net/Sun Sports.
Keys for Tennessee: Don't fade. Louisville killed Tennessee
with a 24-2 run in the second half last Saturday.,... Big games
from Major Wingate, who had a career-high 13 points and eight
rebounds against Louisville, and freshman Chris Lofton, who led
the Volunteers with 15 points.
Keys for Auburn: Win the first five minutes. Tennessee is 2-7
when tied or trailing at the first media timeout of the game.... Hit
at.least 10 3-pointers. Vanderbilt hit 18 3-pointers against the
Volunteers, and hitting.from the outside may be undersized
Auburn's best chance to win.

Georgia at Alabama
B Records: Georgia 7-8 (1-4 SEC East); Alabama 15-3 (4-1 SEC
West).1 Coaches: Georgia's Dennis Felton (123-76); Alabama's
Mark Gottfried (202-102). Tip-off: 7 p.m. CT Saturday. 0 TV:
Fox Sports Net/Sun Sports.
Keys for Georgia: Hound Alabama point guard Ronald Steele,
who has an assist-to-turnover ratio of plus-4.83 in conference
games.... Get the most out of trips to the line. Georgia is last in
the league with a free-throw percentage of 61.5 (198 of 322).
Keys for Alabama: Take advantage of Georgia's perimeter
defense. Bulldog opponents are sitting 45.7 percent from the
field.... Play tough defense. The Crimson Tide is forcing a
league-worst 11.4 turnovers per game.

MsBAMA Crimson Tide head coach
Mark Gottfried picked up
his first win at Ole Miss' Tad Smith
Coliseum as his team rallied from an eight-
point second-half deficit to post a 66-58
victory over the Rebels.
WIMCANSAS The SEC released a
statement last Thursday
on the Razorbacks' 66-63 loss at LSU on
Jan. 19. Miscommunication following an
apparent 3-pointer by Michael Jones'with,
1.8 seconds left cost the Razorbacks their
first SEC road victory in 12 games.
Following a desperation heave by LSU at the
buzzer, the officials replayed Jones' basket
and the evidence was inconclusive. The
basket counted for two points and forced the
extra session. "One official signaled a
2-point shot as the shot was taken, and
another signaled a 3-point shot after the shot
was made," the statement said. "The official
who signaled a 3-point goal never
communicated his call to the other official.
As a result, in the judgment of the official
who had signaled a 2-point goal, the ruling
on the floor at that time was that the shot was
a 2-point goal."

ILBURNN Head coach JeffLebo put
the sneakers back on and
participated in the Tigers' practice last
Thursday. The 38-year-old Lebo, who was
anAll-ACC performer at North Carolina and
played one season with the San Antonio
Spurs, practiced with the team to
compensate for the loss of Brett Howell,
who is battling mononucleosis.
ISNRIDA Junior Matt Walsh returned
to the lineup sooner than
expected after tearing ligaments in his left
ankle. Walsh was supposed to be out 4 to 6
weeks after suffering the injury on Dec. 30,
but made his return in the Gators' 83-76
overtime loss to Tennessee on Jan. 19.

~BiRGIA Despite playing without
leading scorer Levi Stukes,
the Bulldogs picked up their first SEC
victory with a 68-59 win over Vanderbilt last
Saturday. Walk-on guard Kevin Brophy, a
freshman from Australia, started in place of
Stukes and scored a career-high 19 points.
Stukes suffered a sprained ankle in practice
last Thursday.
m I rTUCHKY Joe Crawford returned
after a three-game
absence and scored five points in the
Wildcats' 89-58 victory over LSU last
Saturday. Crawford, who had thought about
transferring from Kentucky, was welcomed
back after apologizing to his teammates and
coaching staff.
l f The Tigers shot 33.3 percent and
committed 18 turnovers in last
Saturday's loss at Kentucky. "We gave up
too many easy baskets off of our turnovers,"
said Tigers head coach John Brady, whose
, program suffered i-s "iorst SEC lo:s. in ihree
es sonr
lbIa SfGISSPPI Brian Smith, a
freshman walk-on and
the son of University of Kentucky head
coach Tubby Smith, didn't play against the
Wildcats on Jan. 19. "It's emotional, because
you care about your son, you care about
coach Barnes, and you want to see them do
well," Tubby Smith said prior to the game.
- twHS S STATE The Bulldogs
mn rebounded from their
most lopsided loss in 12 seasons with a
73-65 victory over South Carolina last
Saturday. Alabama handed Mississippi State
a 98-49 setback on Jan. 18, the program's
worst loss since a 115-58 loss to Arkansas
during the 1992-93 season.

I -AROLINA Last Saturday's loss to
Mississippi State
dropped the Gamecocks to 0-4 against
ranked teams on the road this season. "We
think were a great basketball team, but
we've just got to put all the keys together
and win a game on the road against a high-
caliber team," South Carolina senior Carlos
Powell said heading into the game.

H SINNESSEE Forward Brandon
Crump played only
two minutes before suffering a sprained
ankle in last Saturday's 85-62 loss at
Louisville. "It is really frustrating,"
Tennessee head coach Buzz Peterson said.
"The timing isn't good, since we are in
conference play."
i0RNDDERBILT The Contmodores
converted only two
field-goal attempts over the final five
minutes and 30 seconds in last Saturday's
loss at Georgia. "They certainly made more
plays than we did. They played with a better
energy level than we did," said Vanderbilt
coach Kevin Stallings.

the Dogs district record to 5-
4 and a sure second or third
seeding in the district playoff
games. Suwannee takes on
district foe Madison County
in the Dog House tonight for
their second meet of the year.
This is a very important game
and will determine the final
seeding for the district play-
offs.
Suwannee took on district
foe Taylor County at home
Thursday, Jan. 20. Once
again, the Dogs took the lead
from the first basket and kept
it throughout the game. The
final score was 67-48.
Starting for Suwannee
were Nate Herring at guard,
Mario Hawthorne at forward,
Quaramos Ross at guard,
Jevon Smith at forward and
Philip Clark at center. The
Dogs came out shooting and
scored first. But the Taylor
defense was tough and at the
end of the half the score was
only 31-25. Suwannee in the
lead. Herring topped the
boards in the first half with
seven rebounds. Clark was a
close second with five. The
Dogs shot 12 of 31 in the
field during the first half.
Taylor came out charged up
after the half-time break.
They had several plays they
pulled out, but the Dogs pre-
vailed, running up the score
to a 10-point lead, 37-27 be-
fore the third period was
over. When the third period
ended the Dogs had Taylor by
13 up 45-32.
Suwannee ran their lead up
by 17 in the fourth period 51-
34. Taylor pressed hard but
Suwannee held on. The Tay-
lor Bulldogs scored eight
unanswered points bringing
the score to 51-40.
The Dogs hammered Tay-
lor in the final two minutes.
Mario HaT., thorne.hit two lay-
ups in a row. Jevon Smith


made a steal and Herring
dropped the basket in. Sud-
denly the Dogs were up by 15
with 1:41 left to play.
Hawthorne scored once more
and then Philip Clark broke
away with the ball and slam-
dunked it. The crowd roared
and Taylor gave up and
walked off the court as Clark
did a repeat and dunked the
ball again. Suwannee fans
were on their feet as the Dogs
won-again at home 67-48.
In the second half, Suwan-
nee went 12 for 29 shooting,
while Taylor went 6 for 29
with nine turnovers. Herring

will determine the final seed-
ing for the district playoffs.
So make sure you come out
and support the team. The
fans are always the sixth man
on the floor for the Dogs.
They need your help!
It's a basketball marathon

a start with JV girls playing at
3:30 p.m. followed by JV

astic fans. Come out and sup-
port the boys from Suwannee.

on the hapless Taylor Lady
Bulldogs' heads.
At the half Suwannee was
in the lead 39-18. At the end
of the third the Lady Dogs
were up 66-30 and the mer-
cy rule kicked in. The clock
ran continuously, stopping
only when the officials
called a time out or for in-
juries. Even with the clock
racing, the Lady Dogs were
able to rack up 11 more
points to make their final to-
tal 77-30.
Topping the charts in scor-
ing for the Lady Dogs was
Erin Russell with 28. Russell
has developed a nice little
lay-up that never misses.


Coming in a close second
was tall-girl Cheretta Ross
with 25 points. Shasmin
Montique had nine points.
Dominque Reed scored six
points. Getoria Clayton had
five points and Angela Jelks
scored two points.
The Lady Dogs take on
Madison County's Cowgirls
at home tonight, Friday, Jan.
28 at 6:30 p.m. The Cowgirls
always bring a pack of en-
thusiastic fans with them.
Come out and support the
Lady Dog basketball team.
Go Lady Dogs!

Lady
Continued From Page 1B

Tuesday night, the Lady
Dogs hosted the Columbia
Lady Tigers in Langford Sta-


dium. The game, senior night
for the Lady Dogs, would
prove to be a very physical
match as the Lady Tigers
tried to slow down the


, ,,, *
^. - ,- ,-

Suwannee offense. But the
Lady Dogs got on the score-
board in the 11th minute
when Jenna Jordan took the
ball to the left of the goal and
crossed the ball back in to
forward Ashley Harris, who
made a sliding touch on the
ball to send it past the keeper.
Less than two minutes later
Suwannee won a corer kick
and Debra Craig sent the ball
in to Katherine Wilding, who
put up a high shot that went
over the keeper and just un-
der the crossbar. Craig got
her second assist of the night
10 minutes later when she
sent a pass over the defense
to Jenna Jordan and Jordan
beat the keeper with a low
shot to the right corer of the
net. That would end the scor-
ing for the game, but not the
action. The remainder of the
first half and the entire sec-
ond half would be a battle for
possession 'of the ball, with
numerous fouls being called
against both teams. Suwan-
nee out shot the Lady Tigers


15-2 but couldn't put in an-
other goal and the game end-
ed in a 3-0 shutout.
Thursday night the Lady
Dogs traveled to Gainesville
to face the Gainesville High
Lady Canes. Gainesville got
on the board first early in the
match when one of their for-
wards split the Suwannee de-
fenders and shot past keeper
Alicia Cash. Kate Townsend
evened the score for Suwan-
nee when her shot from 20
yards out was just out of the
keeper's reach. GHS went
up again 4 minutes later when
their speedy forward got past
the defense and put in anoth-
er one.
Ashley Harris pulled the
Lady Dogs back to 2-2 when
she beat two defenders, then
eluded the keeper to put a
shot into the open goal. Katie
Prevatt gave the Lady Dogs
their first lead of the game
when she headed a free kick
that bounced off the left post,
got the rebound and slipped it
past the keeper.
Suwannee was able
to hold the lead until
about 15 minutes into
the second half when
the Lady Canes tied it
up again. As the clock
wound down it ap-
peared the game would
end in a tie, but with
less than 2 minutes left
in the game a GHS
player got an open shot
at the top of the box
that went past the
keeper and broke the
Lady Dogs' hearts. The
final score was 3-4
with GHS taking home
', the win.
The next night
Suwannee had to get


back on the bus to
Gainesville to play the East-
side Lady Rams. Eastside
beat the Lady Dogs 6-1 in the
season opener back in Octo-
ber, their largest margin of
loss all season. Eastside
would benefit from an early
mistake when normally sure-
handed keeper Al Cash let a
long shot slip through her
hands and roll into the goal,
giving Eastside a 1-0 lead
with less than a minute gone
in the game. The Lady
Dogs recovered and put up
some shots of their own, sev-
eral narrowly missing the
goal, but Eastside scored an-
other goal with' 23 minutes
left in the first half. Suwan-
nee couldn't get on the board
before the half and went in
down 2-0.
The second half was very
evenly played with neither
team getting many shot op-
portunities. Suwannee final-
ly got on the scoreboard with
eight minutes left in the game
when an Eastside free kick
was volleyed back by defend-
er Candace Goodman, then
headed by midfielder Kelsey
Bowen to Jenna Jordan, who
volleyed the ball over two
Eastside defenders. Forward
Katie Prevatt split the de-
fenders, caught up to the ball
and shot from just inside the
box.
The keeper stopped the
shot but couldn't hold onto
the ball and Prevatt followed
her shot in and poked it into
the goal. Suwannee tried
desperately to tie the game,
but with three minutes left
Eastside was awarded a free
kick after a foul about 20
yards in front of the Suwan-
nee goal. The free kick was


perfectly placed over backup
keeper Erica Sparks' reach
and that put Eastside up 3-1.
Coach Kathy Wood was
very upbeat about the week's
games. "We knew this would
be a tough week, but the team
played well in all three
games. It would have been
easy to give up after going
down by a goal early in our
last two games, but they
fought back in each game and
we had a chance to win or tie
with minutes left in the game.
All three games were very
physical and we can take this
experience into the district
playoffs next week and hope-
fully use it to our advantage.
The "second season" begins
next week with the playoffs
and our win/loss record does-
n't mean anything. We have
to win Tuesday night to make
it to the district championship
on Thursday night. After that
it's simple: you're three wins
away from being regional
champs and five wins away
from being state champs.
We're taking it one game at
time, though, and have to
take care of business in the
district playoffs before we
can move on."
The Player of the Week last
week was sophomore for-
ward Ashley Harris. Harris
had two goals for the week,
bringing her season total to
20. She leads the team in
scoring and her tenacious
play up front sparks the Lady
Dogs' offense. She has the
ability to take over a game,
but contributes in many other
ways in addition to scoring.
Look for the results of the
girls' soccer district champi-
onships in next Wednesday's
Suwannee Democrat.

CHURCH


Cedar Key United Methodist


Church to celebrate


150th anniversary


The Cedar Key United
Methodist Church will mark
the 150th Anniversary of its
founding at its Annual Home-
coming, Sunday, March 13, at
the church. The Rev. Charles
Weaver, Assistant to the Bish-
op, Florida Annual Confer-
ence, will deliver the sermon.
Founded in 1855 on the is-
land ofAtsena Otie, where the
original city of Cedar Key was
located, the first church build-
ing was built in 1857-1858 ac-
cording to a .book written by
an early Methodist circuit rid-
er, the Rev. Jeremiah Rast. His
mission included all of Levy
County, and parts of Marion
and Alachua Counties. There
were about 27 preaching stops


on the circuit. So weekly ser-
vices were not possible.
Later, when the city was
moved back one island to Way
Key, due to hurricane damage,
the present church was con-
structed in 1889. The church
was heavily damaged in the
1896 tidal wave and was re-
built. It was again damaged in
the hurricane of 1950 when it
was moved off its foundation,
the parsonage destroyed, and
most of the church records
were lost. Over 60 pastors
have ministered to the congre-
gation since its founding. Its
current pastor is James
Howes, formerly of Live Oak.
In recent years the church
has expanded its fellowship


hall, purchased the adjacent
building for Sunday school
space, a community food
pantry, and a community teen
center. In 2001 the church in-
stalled the 11th and last of a
series of stained glass win-
dows designed by local high
school students and handcraft-
ed by local artist, Don Joyce,
owner of Haven Isle Gift &
Glass. Each window depicts a
biblical scene on top and a
Cedar Key scene in the bot-
tom panel. The congregation
is also currently midway
through its "Growing Togeth-
er With God" capital cam-
paign.
The public is invited to at-
tend the celebration.


Gripe, gripe, gripe!


Listen. What do you
hear?...in the grocery
store?...at the Library?...over
at the Laundromat?...on the
job?...and even in the church
of all places?
Mom used to say, "If you
can't say something nice,
don't say anything." "Out of
the same mouth proceedeth
blessing and cursing. My
brethren, these things ought
no so to be." (James 3:10).
"And when the people
complained, it displeased the
Lord: and the Lord heard it;
and his anger was kindled..."
(Numbers 11:1). "But," you
say, "That is in the Old Tes-
tament." Do you really be-
lieve God is any less dis-
pleased when His people


complain today?
If your church is to have
an effective ministry it must
have the Lord's blessing. If
it is going to have His bless-
ing it must be pleasing in
His sight and in order to
please Him it must be
purged of griping! How?
Determine to be the starting
point in your church by
complying to Paul's direc-
tive: "Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are hon-
est, whatsoever things are
just, whatsoever things are
pure, whatsoever things are
lovely, whatsoever things
are of good report; if there
be any virtue, and if there be
any praise, think on these


David H. Matier
things" (Philippians 4:8).
Replace the negative with
that which is positive!

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWERS

Michael A. Guido
Metter, Georgia


Walking through a ceme-
tery, a boy saw this inscrip-
tion: "Sleeping, not dead."
"Wow," he said. "he ain't
foolin' nobody but himself."
But according to the Bible
death to a believer is sleep.
Sleep is delightful, not
S dreadful; pleasurable, not
painful. So is death to a be-
liever.
Sleep keeps out pains and
problems, sorrow and suf-
ferings. So does death to a
believer.
To sleep is to rise again.
So at death, the believer's
soul goes to be with the
Lord. But the body sleeps in
the grave to rise at the resur-
rection.
The inscription is true for
the believer: "Sleeping, not
dead."

^W 7�n~^ (^w a (K� 1

Developing friendships requires patience and nurturing. It's true that
the old saying, "a friend in need is a friend indeed" is
quite appropriate.
A good friend is considerate of your feelings and
problems, and they
are there for you when you need help. - -.,
An act of kindness and friendship may
be as simple as visiting someone when
they are ill, driving someone to an
appointment, or just visiting and * *
spending time with someone. The
Bible tells us that we should not
forsake our friends and that a friend
loves at all times. Christ has always
been our supreme friend. He told us 4
that He would never leave us or
forsake us. He has been our friend
and helper more than we will ever
know. When Christ died on the cross
for our sins, He demonstrated the
Ultimate act of love for us. Although we may not be
Asked to give up our lives for our friends, our Lord's example of love
Sand compassion should be reflected in our daily lives.
At times, everyone needs support and help, and sharing God's love
with others reflects the love that God has for us.
Greater love has no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends.

We all have to realize that each of us has flaws and shortcomings, and we
should accept others as they are, and in turn, hopefully, others will accept
us as we are. However, this does not mean that we should not
try to continually improve ourselves. We should always act
and behave as God would want us to, and treat others as we
would want to be treated.
It is really a blessing from God to know oneself;
however, it seems that we can usually find fault with ,
others much easier than we can with ourselves.
Seeing faults in others should induce us to
correct our own weaknesses and help us strive to
be more understanding and patient with those
around us.
Only God is perfect, but if we seek His will
and try to be the best that we can be, we can each
become better persons and more pleasing to our
Heavenly Father.
Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye but
do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
R.S.V Luke 6:41

The Diet


Soup
By Charles Stuart Platkin
Unless you're one of the
lucky ones who live in a
warm climate, a nice cup of
hot soup probably sounds
like a great idea right now.
But soup can do a lot more
than warm you up - it can
also fill you up and help
you lose weight. A recent
study published in the jour-
nal "Physiology & Behav-
ior" found that soups re-
duced hunger and in-
creased fullness as much as
solid foods. And total calo-
rie intake was lower when
participants ate soup rather
than drinking similar quan-
tities of ordinary beverages.
"Soups have a water base,
which keeps the calories
down..They tend to make
you feel more satisfied, so
you eat less," says Barbara
Rolls, Ph.D., professor of
nutrition at Penn State Uni-
versity and author of the
forthcoming book "The
Volumetrics Eating Plan:
Techniques and Recipes for
Feeling Full on Fewer Calo-
ries." Dr. Rolls led the origi-
nal groundbreaking re-
search that found that eat-
ing soup prior to your meal
could reduce mealtime con-
sumption by as many as 100
calories. However, "The
soup itself must be fairly
low in calories to be the
most effective - otherwise
you end up eating two
meals," cautions Rolls.
Here are a few tips to help
you choose the right soup.
FRENCH ONION
VERSUS BROCCOLI-
CHEDDAR SOUP
If you skip the bread and
cheese topping (which can
add 350 calories), your best
bet is French onion soup,
made with sherry, onions,
butter and beef bouillon, at
about 100 to 200 calories per
cup, depending on ingredi-
entsi. For instance, Au Bon
Pain's has 80 calories per
cup (keep in mind, the serv-
ing size is 12 ounces),
whereas Panera Bread's has
220 calories per cup. And
Applebee's French Onion
Soup au Gratin has only 150
calories per cup, including a
crouton and reduced-fat
cheese.
On the other hand, broc-
coli-cheddar soup, often
made with heavy cream,
has about 175 to 275 calories
per cup; Au Bon Pain's has
230 calories. Try to avoid
cream and cheese soups in
general.
CHICKEN NOODLE
VERSUS CHICKEN
VEGETABLE
While both are good
choices, chicken vegetable
is a bit lower on average be-
cause it's missing the noo-
dles.
- Campbell's Kitchen
Classics Chicken Noodle
Soup (1 cup): 90 calories, Ig
fat, 13g carbs, 6g protein,
870mg sodium
- Homemade chicken
noodle soup, from scratch
(1 cup): 300 calories, 7g fat,
28g carbs, 30g protein,
1,430mg sodium
- Campbell's Chunky
Soup, Hearty Chicken with
Vegetables (1 cup): 100 calo-
ries, 1.5g fat, 14g carbs, 7g
protein, 790mg sodium
BLACK BEAN VERSUS
LENTIL SOUP
This one's a close call. The
only thing that really makes
lentil a better choice is the
sour cream that's often


served on top of the black
bean soup (60 calories for 2
tablespoons). Both of these
legumes offer health bene-
fits, including significant fo-
late, magnesium, antioxi-
dants, fiber and protein,
with very low calories and
fat. One additional benefit
of black beans is the amount
of iron, a nutrient many
Americans tend to lack in
their diets.

- Coco Pazzo Tuscan
Lentil Soup (1 cup): 220
calories, 6g fat, 30g carbs
(16g fiber), 15g protein,
610mg sodium
MINESTRONE VERSUS
SPLIT-PEA SOUP
Peas are an excellent
source of fiber, folate and
potassium, but split-pea
soup is usually the loser
calorie-wise. It can be made
a variety of ways, and when
the peas are pureed, they're
sometimes combined with
butter and cream, which
boosts the calorie and fat
content. Minestrone, made
with an assortment of veg-
etables, including leeks, car-
rots, onions, celery, pota-
toes, zucchini, tomatoes and
beans, is consistently the
better choice. One cup is
generally in the 100- to 180-
calorie range, depending on
the amount of beans and
whether pasta is added.
- Campbell's Kitchen
Classics Minestrone Soup (1
cup): 110 calories, 0.5g fat,
22g carbs, 4g protein,
840mg sodium
- Health Valley Organic

- Au Bon Pa n's Split Pea
with Ham (1 cup butserv\-
ing size is 12 ounces): 140
calories, Ig fat, 23g carbs,
10g protein, 680mg sodium
CLAM CHOWDER
VERSUS LOBSTER
BISQUE
You might think all clam
chowders are equal, but the
Manhattan version is toma-
to-based, whereas New
England clam chowder is
made with milk or cream,
which makes it higher in
calories. But lobster bisque,
typically made with heavy
cream, can be the highest of
all, coming in at 260 calories
or more per cup, depending
on the amount of butter,
heavy cream and lobster
used in the preparation.
Bisque, after all, means
thick and creamy, so what
would you expect?
- Progresso Manhattan
Clam Chowder (1 cup): 110
calories, 2g fat, 17g carbs, 6g
protein, 880mg sodium
- Campbell's Kitchen
Classics New England
Clam Chowder (1 cup): 240
calories, 16g fat, 20g carbs,

- Boston Chowda Lob-
ster Bisque (1 cup): 260 calo-
ries, 19g fat, 12g carbs, 9g
protein, 1,400mg sodium
HOT AND SOUR
VERSUS EGG DROP
VERSUS MISO SOUP
All these soups are excel-
lent choices. P.F. Chang's
Hot and Sour Soup (made
with chicken and bean
curd) has only 56 calories
per cup. Egg drop soup has
only about 60 calories per


cup, and traditional miso
soup has only about 40 calo-
ries per cup. Just stay away
from the fried noodles that
come with your soup!

BIRDIES AND BOGEYS
He can't get no respect
After his $10 million season, Vijay
Singh has changed caddies. Dave Ren-
wick, Vijay's former caddie, says he
will wait to see if Singh needs him
for the Players Championship and the
Masters, but it may be a long wait.
There are three prime characteris-
tics of a good caddie: show up, keep
up and shut up. Renwick violated the
latter big-time by saying: "I just was-
n't getting the respect I deserve; it
was either nothing or a negative if he
did speak to me. Being courteous is-
n't too much to ask. There's only so
much of that stuff you can take no
matter how good the money is."'
And the money was very good. If
Renwick received the usual
player/caddie deal; he made over $1
million last year, based on Singh's to-
tal. When I caddied, we were told to
just say, "Yes, sir," "No, sir" and
"Thank you, sir." May I add that
when given $1 million, you should
say, "Thank you very much, sir."
A heap of relief.
Whether this story is a birdie or a
bogie depends on who you talk to.
The Tiger Woods Foundation is giv-
ing $100,000 to tsunami relief (and
the PGA Tour is donating a matching
amount). But some say it's a bogie -
it's not enough. They point out that
Tiger's mother is from Thailand (one
of the countries most affected by the
tsunami) and say he should give a lot
more. They point to auto racing's For-
mula One champion Michael Schu-
macher, who pledged $10 million.
The Insider's take: While it is true
that Tiger makes a lot of money,
$100,000 is a good piece of cash. And
Tiger and his foundation do a lot for
charity Outsiders shouldn't worry
about how much he gives to any par-
ticular cause; it's none of their busi-
ness. Kudos to Michael Schumacher,
but kudos to Tiger as well.


According to a former caddie,
Vijay Singh is rarely courteous.

GOLF BY THE NUMBERS


3
Tiger Woods had three of the longest top
10 drives in the recent Mercedes Tourna-
ment of Champions in Hawaii. No one
else had more than one drive in the top
10. And he recorded the longest in the
field, a 407-yard smash onthe 12th hole..
The reasons for his return to mega-long
drives can be attributed to three
changes he has made: (1) a more on-,
plane golf swing, thanks to Hank
Haney; (2) a much larger head on his
driver with a graphite shaft, thanks to
Nike; and (3) a golf ball that perfectly
matches his swing characteristics, once
again via Nike.


21
The number of tournaments Vijay
Singh is scheduled to play in by La-
bor Day weekend in 2005, more
than Tiger Woods plans to play in
all year. As Chi Chi Rodriquez once
said of Jack Nicklaus, "He has be-
come a legend in his spare time."


37
The average number of tourna-
ments per year Dana Quigley plays
on the Champions Tour. At the start
of the 2005 golf season, Dana
Quigley had played in 262 consecu-
tive tournaments for which he was
eligible. The streak is seven years
in the making and counting.

Hip rotation n is



for everyone


I'm often asked what is the
biggest difference between the
pro and amateur swing, and
my answer is hip rotation. Moder-
ately skilled players typically ex-
hibit less than half the hip rota-
tion of skilled players.
The efficient use of the hips is
the major reason professionals hit
the ball such prodigious distances
with so little effort. With the prop-
er rotation, you achieve power by
transferring energy from one
body segment to the next (from
the ground up), not as most ama-
teurs do, by "muscling the ball"
with their hands and arms (hit-
ting from the top down).
To get an idea of how active the
hips should be, look at the accom-
panying photos of LPGA Futures
Tour player Jill Finlan. At the top
of her backswing, Jill's hips have
turned from where they were at
address (parallel left to the intend-
ed line of flight) to their current
position - a turn of 45 degrees.
At impact - and here is where
most golfers fail - her hips are
now 45 degrees open (turned left
of the intended line of flight) for a

Tests show that this 90 degrees of
rotation is absent in the swings of
most amateurs.
To develop 90 degrees of hip ro-
Station, get yourself a mirror and
swing in slow motion, stopping in
these two positions (the top and
impact) to check out your hip rota-
tion. Repeat until you can match
Jill. This will give you the feeling
of how and when you should move
your hips.
The key is that your hips must
start the downswing before any-
thing else moves (arms, hands,


THE GOLF DOCTOR
Elusive expectations
Many golfers believe they're just one golf tip away from
finding the secret to a great swing. The problem is that be-
lieving there is a secret to golf is a barrier to learning the
game because it encourages you to waste valuable time in
the ill-advised search for something that doesn't exist.
Looking for the secret is a lazy golfer's burden - it's the
easy way out. You can't buy a good golf game, and you
can't afford to aimlessly adopt the tip of the day as you tin-
ker with your swing, searching for a magic cure.
Learning the game is a stepwise procedure. You should


etc.) and they must keep rotating
unimpeded all the way into your
finish. However, don't overthink
the process. Copy Jill's positions
and swing at ever-increasing
speeds to feel the correct energy
transfer, preferably under the
watchful eye of'a competent teach-
ing professional.
And be patient. If you're like
most golfers, hip rotation is very
hard to change, so this is not
something you'll be able to accom-
plish overnight. Depending on
how much time you have to devote
to practice, making such a'change
couldltake s-everal months.- -
Onq final thought: Take another
look at Finlan's position at the top
of the backswing. She has turned
her hips 45 degrees from where
she started at address, however,
notice that Jill's shoulders have
turned twice as much as her hips.
This differential between the
shoulder and hip turn is known as
"coil." If you turn everything the
same amount there will be no dif-
ferential. Remember this phrase:
There is a turn in every coil but
not a coil in every turn:.


develop a blueprint for your swing, put the pieces in place
as the foundation for that swing, and develop your mental
ability to control your brain while you play
Ben Hogan talked about a "secret," but it was just the
last piece he put in place to complete a swing foundation
that was 10 years in the making. He had a blueprint that
he developed and followed meticulously, along with the
ability to control his brain while he was playing.
So don't waste your time chasing the "secret of the
week." The secret is: develop a blueprint one piece at a
time, refine it on the practice range, then go play

TEEING OFF


Fundamental

practice:

The setup
ere's a stat that might sur-.
prise you: 80 percent of in--
swing errors are the result
of a lack of attention to the details
in setup. The setup writes the
script for the swing, and when you,
practice fundamentals your setup
should always include the big
three: aiming the club face, align-
ing the body and ball position.
Simply assuming that aim, align-
ment and ball position are correct
today because they were correct
yesterday is a sure way to lose your.
swing. For example, studies show
that 90 percent of right-handed
players unintentionally aim and
align to the right of the target.
Many of them then develop a
swing that comes "over the top" in
an attempt to pull the ball back to
target.
There are many other serious
problems lurking when the big
three are in disarray, most of .
which can be eliminated by sett n
up a practice station to train yo url
self to do two important things: (1)1
look where you should be aiming, -
and (2) aim where you should be
looking.
To set up a station, lay three
clubs on the ground as follows: ones
club about 4 inches outside of and:.
parallel to your target line; one "
club parallel to the first club, lying
*along the tips of your toes; the A-
third club lying between your feet.
so it points to the ball.
Use the first club to check the :
aim of your club face; use the sec-,;"
ond club to check the alignment of
your feet, parallel to the target lin(
use the third club to ensure consist
tent positioning of the ball. (Tee "
each ball so you don't have to
change your station to avoid div-
ots.)
ASK THE PRO
Q: I'm very happy with my ball
striking, but my putting is not up
to the rest of my game. I'm not the
world's worst, but it is definitely
holding me back.
To give you an idea, I'm a 2 hand-
icapper who got a lot out your '
book, "The 30-Second Golf Swing,"'
including the part where you
talked about making out a
"Strength and Weakness Profile" (I
was a 6 before reading it). But now
my only glaring weakness is
putting.
My stroke "wavers" going back
and starting down (it goes straight
back and then inside at the transi-
tion - just like my full golf swing).,
I have fooled around with grip pres-
sure and various grips - left hand
low, in the palms more, claw, etc.,
but nothing changes it. It has done
this all my life, starting as a junior
golfer. Do you have thoughts or sug-
gestions?
- Tom P. from Cedarhurst, N.Y.
A: It's nice to hear from some-
one who's happy with his ball strik-
ing. Congratulations.
Now about your putting: Stand
in front of a mirror placed behind
your intended line of roll and take
your normal putting stance. Check
to see if an imaginary straight line
extending from the butt end of the
putter will pass through the inside
edge of your forearms. If not, ad-
just the handle so it is more in your
palms than your fingers.
If the imaginary line is still be-
low your forearms (I suspect that it
will be), arc your wrists downward
until the imaginary line moves up
and passes through the inside edge
of your forearms.
At this point the heel of your
putter may be off the ground. If it
is, you will have to change the lie
angle of your putter to get it to sit
flat again. The goal behind allof
this is creating a one-lever system
(forearms and club shaft) that will
make your stroke more stable and
put an end to your "wavers."

4-H Afterschool supplies after-school staff
with professional hands-on learning activities
for the kids. As a result, 4-H clubs in after-
school programs are popular because young
people learn how to be good leaders and
citizens, think clearly, make decisions and
apply the knowledge they learn in school. The


JCPenney Afterschool Fund is the national
presenting sponsor of 4-H Afterschool. Visit
www.4hafter school.org to learn more about
4-H Afterschool or www.4husa.org to join 4-
H youth development clubs and programs.
In sports ranging from Greco-Roman
wrestling to marksmanship to the modern


pentathlon, Army Olympic athletes excel in a
variety of events. This year's U.S. Olympic
team featured 14 soldiers, including two
wrestlers, two modern pentathletes, one
rower, one track & field athlete and eight
marksmen. For more information on Army
Olympians, go to GoArmy.com.
