three high schoolers


arrested for drug


possession

Democrat Reporter
Five Suwannee County Schools stu-
dents were charged in incidents involv-
ingmarijuana, including three Branford
Students arrested Feb. 1 and two Suwan-
nee Elementary School fifth graders
who were arrested Feb. 2 and charged
with possession of marijuana at the
school.
In the SES incident, School Resource
Officer Kim Lane received a tip that
drugs were on campus and questioned
one of the students. That student pulled
out a small bag of what appeared to be
marijuana from his pocket, according to
Lane's report. The
student stated he
was going to
bring $15 to
school the next
morning to pay
for the "weed."

will continue, and he'll be appointed
to Judge Kennon's unexpired term of
two years.
That will be up to Florida Gov. Jeb
Bush who has 60 days from the day
the three candidates were certified as
qualified Jan. 30 to make an appoint-
ment to fill Judge Kennon's unexpired
term.
Fina, 48, has lived in Live Oak
since 1984 when he became an assis-

year. With the exception of one year
working for the Shelby County Dis-
trict Attorney's Office in Columbiana,
Ala., while in his last year of law
school, Fina has practiced his entire
career in Live Oak with the Third Cir-
cuit State Attorney's office. During
this time, he's tried about ,every type
criminal case possible, including two
recently where men convicted of sex
crimes against children were sen-
tenced to chemical castration at Fina's
request. He currently is a member of

.LOPD arrests two for obtaining

,property with worthless checks
On Jan. 18 Live Oak Police Sgt. Jason
Rountree responded to the Radio Shack at 305
Pinewood Way to investigate a report of some- ,
-one passing worthless checks. It was reported ,.
that on two occasions, two individuals pur- ,- '
chased stereo and TV equipment using checks. .;,'.4 .
The checks were later returned from the bank '".. ,
marked "account not found." .
Sgt. Rountree continued the investigation
Which resulted in the suspects being identified Robert Brewer
'as Robert Brewer, 42, 14219 97th Road, and
Eugene A. Bates, 33, who also lists his address
as 14219 97th Road, LOPD said.
On Feb. 1 Sergeant Rountree made a traffic
stop of a vehicle which contained the two sub-
jects. It was then learned that Bates had an out-
standing warrant in Suwannee County for writ-
ing worthless checks. He was immediately ar-
rested on the warrant. Sgt. Rountree continued
thie investigation which resulted in both sub- Eugene A. Bates
jects being charged with obtaining property
wjth worthless checks. He further learned that the subjects sold
the items they obtained from Radio Shack; therefore they were
also charged with dealing in stolen property.
Furthermore, Bates was found to be in possession of cannabis
a. nd cocaine, so additional charges were placed upon him. Both
,mnen were transported to the Suwannee County Jail, LOPD said.

Tobacco


Continued From Page 1A

the tobacco quota buyout will
'be the key topic at the annual
'district meeting this year.
"'Ample time will be provided
for comments and discussion,"
Dasher said.
Arnold Hamm, the assistant
'general manager of Flue-
Cured Tobacco Cooperation
Stablization Corporation, will
be the speaker.
Dasher said the law signed
- by President Bush Oct. 22,
K2004 authorizing the buyout.
".We're probably looking at a
payout sometime in September
or October, with partial pay-
outs to be paid out over a 10-
year period based on your
,;002 allotment." Dasher said
the Farm Service Agency of
Athe United States Department
of Agriculture (USDA) was
given six months from the time


the law was signed into effect
to implement the plan.
Dasher said the role of stabi-
lization was to a~dmiiii'ster the
tobacco program, which is no
longer in existence so it will
now provide an alternative
market to contract marketing
with companies for the farmers
who wish to do so.
Dasher, presently Suwannee
County Clerk of Court and a to-
bacco farmer, said he is going to
grow tobacco this year and see
if he can make a profit under the
current rules, but if not, he's
through growing the golden
leaf. "Farmers have a lot of de-
cisions to make regarding to-
bacco and most of them have al-
ready got their minds made up,"
Dasher said.

TWO VEHICLE ACCIDENT IN WELLBORN SENDS THREE TO THE HOSPITAL: A two vehicle accident
occurred on US 90 in Wellborn Feb. 4 at 7:23 a.m. Below, a 1993 Chevy Blazer driven by Carla Federi-
co of Wellborn was entering US 90 from a private driveway to travel west, according to the Florida
Highway Patrol. Above, a 1997 Ford pickup truck driven by Chong Champion of Live Oak was travel-
ing east on US 90 when Federico entered US 90 into her path. Champion's truck struck Federico's left
side and both vehicles came to rest on the north shoulder of US 90. Federico stated her window was
fogged over and she did not see the approaching traffic. Federico was sited for failure to yield the right
of way. Neither Federico or her passenger Joshua Teague, also of Wellborn, were wearing their seat-
belts and were taken to Shands at Lakeshore Hospital for medical treatment. Champion was taken to
Shands at Live Oak for treatment of her minor injuries and charged with possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana. Suwannee County EMS, Fire Rescue and the Florida Highway Patrol responded to
the scene. Photo: Yvette Hannon

THE
.BOYD
REPORT




BY CONGRESSMAN ALLEN BOYD

"Keeping our

promise to retirees"
Social Security provides income support to 46 million
retirees, including 111,000 in the second district of Flori-
da, as well as survivors, dependents and disabled work-
ers. Keeping this vital program intact, for those who de-
pend on it today and in the future, is a commitment I will
not ignore. In his State of the Union Address, President
Bush effectively laid out the long term problems facing
Social Security, and I commend him for tackling the cru-
cial task of reforming the Social Security system. I have
cosponsored the Bipartisan Retirement Security Act with
Jim Kolbe (R-Ariz.) to preserve and sustain the Social Se-
curity program, and I am pleased the President has em-
braced many of the principles of our plan.
While modernizing Social Security is absolutely essen-
tial, no plan should affect current retirees or those nearing
retirement. My plan, the Bipartisan Retirement Security
Act, does not affect anyone 55 years of age or older. The
Social Security program needs to be reformed so that fu-
ture generations can enjoy the benefits of this invaluable
program, and therefore, only future generations should
feel the effects of reform. We have a moral obligation to
protect the benefits that have been promised to current re-
tirees, and our plan recognizes this responsibility and ful-
fills"hi'spromise ."
Let,.me .tell you what our plan does no.t do:
Our plan does not reduce benefits for anyone near re-
tirement (55 or older) or current retirees.
Our plan does not increase payroll tax rates.
Although we cannot ignore that structural reform of the
Social Security program is necessary, any changes to So-
cial Security must preserve the full benefits promised to
current retirees and near-retirees. The Kolbe-Boyd plan
does not make any changes to the benefits promised to
current retirees or those nearing the retirement age.
Now let me tell you what our plan does do:
Our plan preserves existing benefits for current and
near-retirees.
Our plan increases the rate of return for all workers by
establishing the opportunity for all Americans to create
wealth.
Our plan strengthens the government safety net for
low-income workers through a minimum benefit provi-
sion.
Our plan provides individuals with ownership of and
control over part of their retirement assets-including the
freedom to invest in safe, risk-free Treasury securities.
I will not support any plan that alters the benefits that
current retirees expect and are entitled to. The Kolbe-Boyd
Bipartisan Retirement Security Act is a plan to ensure that
tomorrow's retirees have a secure future, and in no way af-
fects current retirees or those nearing retirement. Current
retirees and those nearing retirement should be guaranteed
every penny of their promised Social Security benefits.
They paid for their benefits and they should receive them.
Current retirees and near-retirees have spent a lifetime
putting a part of their income into Social Security with the
belief that this money will be returned to them upon re-
tirement. We must honor this commitment.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Dear Editor:
I have never read such a good article as the one under
"Our View" in your paper, Jan. 28. The person covered all
aspects of the public, carelessly, making the highways and
roadside such a shameful and ugly sight.
US 90 looks so much nicer after the crews have picked
up the trash bags, boxes, papers, beer bottles, soda cans,
fast food containers, blown tire pieces and "road-kill" an-
imals. Within a few days, the litter is back.
People should have some pride in their own hometown.
Live Oak has made so many improvements new side-
walks, benches to rest on, waste receptacles and shrubbery
- to beautify the city. Wouldn't you think this would en-
courage the citizens to want to keep it beautiful?
We live on Lowe Lake Road and this is an area that sad-
ly needs some crews to "pick-up."
Lowe Lake Road is a well used road and does not get
any attention. We are tax payers, too.
It is a shame that more citizens don't have pride in their
world.
Norma Cummings

Fame and hopefully for-
tune will ,soon belong to
longtime friend and former
co-worker Jeannie Stanley
Allinder. Jeannie, or "Baby
Girl," as her famous father,
Carter Stanley, always called
her, has finally settled on a
record company to produce
and distribute her one and
only tribute album to her late,
great father. Jeannie called
me last week with the big
news, and she was so excit-
ed! She says CMH Records
will have the tribute album
on the market in May or June.
Entitled "Baby Girl, A Trib-
ute to My Father, Carter
Stanley," the album will be a
unique tribute which will
honor her daddy, a bluegrass
icon. Jeannie says many of
his songs have been recorded
over the years by many coun-
try artists, but this one, well,
it's very special because his
youngest daughter will sing
those songs. For one thing,
two of the songs on it are pre-
viously unrecorded, unpub-
lished songs she inherited
from her daddy and learned
to sing. Now, folks, I'm here
to tell you, Jeannie never
thought she could sing when
I first knew her. But, she de-

we are "Americans" a patch-
work quilt made by those
whose lives have added to her
beauty. A quilt crafted by
hands that were black, white,
tan, coffee, caramel-colored
and everything in between.
Hands that labored in cotton
fields, in factories, in sweat-
shops, on the seas, on battle-
fields and in offices around
America. While we continue
to try to master the art of di-
versity, we respect its enrich-
ing quality and openly consid-
er the gifts that it has be-
stowed on our culture. This
quilt reflects the greatness that
is America, that shining jewel
of democracy that so many
admire and yet so few have
been able to replicate, that
precious entity that we all
love and fondly call home, our
open society so envied and ad-
mired around the world.
We hope you will join us in
viewing black history as part
and parcel of American histo-


Feb. 19
ry. Whatever your heritage,
hundreds of thousands of
men, women and children of
all ethnicity's, races and class-
es have from the beginning
and continue to contribute to
the American tapestry. To
learn and teach this precious
heritage is our responsibility
for the future generations.
African American History
month's founder, Dr. Carter G.
Woodson captured the thought
so beautifully when he said,
"We have wonderful history
behind us and it is going to
inspire us to greater achieve-
ments."
Please join the Suwannee
County Community Black
History Committee on Satur-
day, Feb. 19, at 6 p.m. as they
host this year's black history
program. The program will
take place at Ebenezer AME
Church located on the comer

ton Avenue. We hope to see
you there.


cided she must have some of
the family talent since her
daddy could sing up a storm,
and her equally famous un-
cle, Carter's brother, Dr.
Ralph Stanley, is a Grammy
award-winning bluegrass
singer, song-writer and fix-
ture in the world of blue-
grass. Wouldn't you just
know it, she really could sing
like everything and began
working toward this day.
Well, Jeannie enlisted the
help of Uncle Ralph (I've
heard him called this for so
long, if I ever get to meet him
I know I'll call him Uncle
Ralph!) to accompany her on
the album, his son, Ralph
Stanley II, Joe Isaacs, Stacy
York and her uncle's band,
the Clinch Mountain Boys.
With the help of long-time
family friend Joe Isaacs, who
produced the project, an al-
bum was produced that is
hoped will sell world-wide
with a great clamoring to pur-
chase it. Jeannie is going up
to Uncle Ralph's for his
Memorial Day festival in the
mountains of West Virginia
and hopes at that time to have
available copies of the new
album. Don't you know that
Carter Stanley will be look-
ing on from above with the
greatest of pride as his "Baby
Girl," born right here in Live
Oak and now living in Lake
City, sings with all the Stan-
ley talent and enthusiasm as
she shares with the world her
daddy's treasure of songs he
wrote before he passed on.
What a day that will be! And
those of us who know her
will say, "well done, Jeannie,
you deserve this moment in
time to honor your daddy you
loved so much."
When the album is set to be
on the market, we'll let you
know so you can go out and
purchase this tribute album
this is certain to be a necessi-
ty to your musical collection
if you love bluegrass like the
Stanleys sing it.

Billy Maxwell is County
Commission Chairman now.
His three goals for accom-
plishment on his watch are all
related to the imminent
growth and development we
all see looming ahead for our
hometown and, indeed, for
Suwannee County and for all
of North Florida. Billy
Maxwell opened a workshop
meeting focused on Land De-
velopment Regulations with a
good prayer and the pledge of
allegiance. These make us
aware of how blessed we are
to live where people ask
God's blessing and thank Him
that we live here and that
there are folks willing and
able to give required hours to
defining terms and reaching
consensus in order to prevent
the catastrophe we see in
South Florida. Paid govern-
ment employees and volun-
teer people assembled in the
meeting room at Water Man-
agement at 9 a.m.on Feb. 3. It
will take a lot of caring and a
lot work to maintain our en-
joyable life in Wellborn.
Many have already discov-
ered why we like it here and
more are coming all the time.
We have Land Development
Regulations. They are in a
very thick book with a cheery
yellow cover. Changes made
to these rules and regs must
match those in the County
Comprehensive Land Use
Plan. Maxwell WHISPERed


an invitation to his con-
stituents to be "The Public" at
the meeting Feb. 3 and every
couple of weeks thereafter
until the regulations meet
everyone's approval.
Sue Lamb urged atten-
dance, too. A developer has
already been approved to de-
velop, one dwelling per five
acres, some of Wellborn land
along Little River that had
been classified environmen-
tally sensitive and limited to
,one dwelling per 20 acres.
The alarm flag is raised. We
plain folks were the smallest
group. It is an opportunity to
learn who is whom and how it
all works and to encourage
those involved in the process.
I'm glad I went.
Several of the regular Blue-
berry Pancake breakfasters'
brought visiting friends. Kate
and Ed Collins from Franklin,
N.C. were guests of Ellen and
Tony Picardi. Our favorite
vet, Dr. Teri Harty, introduced
her visiting sister Bonnie and
her adorable baby niece, Tay-
lor Rianne, who was indeed a
picture. She is a child in arms
peeping out from under a
white cowboy hat. Dr. Teri
used her camera. A first timer
was the new pastor at Church
Of God, Wellborn, Bro. Den-
nis McMillan and his wife,
Sister Barbara. They enjoyed
meeting and greeting the Rev.
Judithanne and Bro. Carl
Wilkinson. The Wilkinsons

istry" which is a singing min-

tions, 386-963-3909. Jim and

Thirty-eight agriculturally
minded students came to
Wellborn on a drizzly cold
Thursday lately to visit the
Clowsers Farm on CR252.
The kids impressed hosts Na-
talie and Bill Clowser with
demonstrated skills in soil
evaluation and with their con-
servation knowledge. It was
an educational and competi-
tive day with scores kept and
an over all winner for the day.
It was a day of nostalgia too

self.

scribed in "Rolling Stone" mag-
azine as "an American artist
standing forth, voice 'well
trained', in narratives, in fun, in
irony, himself branch and root of
the entwined true vine."
Seeger was raised in a family
of musicians, including his half-
brother, American folk music
legend Pete Seeger. Mike has re-
ceived six Grammy nominations
for his own recordings and those
of the New Lost City Ramblers,
the band he founded in 1958. "I
was raised on field recordings of
Southern rural music and my
parents' singing of these songs
to me and their friends. We al-
ways sang around the house,"
Seeger recalled. By his late
teens, he had developed a re-
markable degree of virtuosity on
a wide variety of instruments,
including guitar, fiddle, auto-
harp, banjo, mandolin, dulcimer,
mouth harp and dobro. In the
mid 1950s his interest began to
shift from the urban folk music
popular at the time to the coun-
try and bluegrass styles of the
rural South. The Ramblers sub-
sequently produced a series of
recordings that became a prima-
ry source for a new generation's
developing repertoire of blues,
ballads, bluegrass, and songs of
labor and love.
The concert is part of a three-

In 1926, Carter G. Wood-
son, African American scholar
and historian founded Black
History Month as a vehicle to
hand down information about
African Americans that had
previously been altered, dis-
missed, or ignored. The more
educated Woodson became,
the more he noticed a trou-


e r





bling pattern in the history and
literature books. Hence, he
founded Black History Month
so that African Americans
would have their rightful place
in the history of the world. In
celebration of Black History
Month, Lake City VA Medical
Center will host its 12th Annu-
al Prayer Breakfast on Friday,


Feb. 11 at 6:30 a.m. in the

Boyd hosts forum on the


future of rural telecom


Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-North Florida), Co-Chair-
man of the Congressional Rur-
al Caucus (CRC), recently
hosted a forum to discuss the
future of rural telecommunica-_
tions and the Universal Service
Fund (USF) in rural
America. This is the second in
a series of forums hosted by
the CRC to address the chal-
lenges telecommunications
carriers face in providing af-
fordable, modem services to
rural customers. These issues
are especially important as
Congress prepares to re-exam-
ine the 1996 Telecommunica-
tions Act.
"Rural America cannot be
left behind when it comes to
national policy decisions, and
this forum is a step to ensure
that rural America has a voice
in developing telecommunica-
tions laws for the new millen-
nium,"''" said Congressman
Boyd. "We must have fair
prices for high-speed Internet,
not only to retain and attract
good jobs in rural America, but
also to improve the overall
quality of our lives."


ASK DR. MANTOOTH

The science of dentistry has come a
long way since ancient times when,
believe it or not, people thought dental
decay was caused by tiny creatures
they called tooth worms. A Sumeria text
dated to 5000 BC mentions them.
Between 500 and 1000 AD, you'd have
to find a monk they were considered
the brightest people of the day to treat
any dental problems. Around the time
of the America Revolution, Paul
Revere, better know for his services as
a dentist. Revere, in fact, is the first
person known to use dental forensics,
to identify the body of a colonial colonel
killed at the -Battle of Bunker Hill. In
1840 the world's first dental school
opened in Baltimore. In 1859, 26
dentists met a Niagara Falls and

visits to your dentist should be part of
your overall plan for a healthy lifestyle.

The Universal Service Fund
is a federal subsidy program
that improves access to tele-
phone services and helps pro-
vide resources to rural areas
that have previously only been
available to larger cities. The
USF affects such services as
medical facilities, schools and
libraries.
Forum panelists included
Fred McCallum of BellSouth,
which services North Florida,
as well as other rural telecom-
munications industry repre-
sentatives.
"Programs funded by the


Universal Service Fund are
very important to rural com-
munities," Congressman Boyd
stated. "When we re-examine
the Telecommunications Act
in the 109th Congress, re-
forms related to keeping the
USF intact must be ad-
dressed. This outstanding set
of panel members offered
their insight to help us do
this. I look forward to working
with my colleagues in the year
ahead to ensure that rural
America is better served by
our nation's telecommunica-
tions laws."

Shaking: A Side Effect of Certain Drugs
Involuntary shaking or quivering can be annoying, embarrassing, and
sometimes physically debilitating. Essential tremors are the kind
commonly experienced by the elderly because they progresses with age
and is commonly seen in different family members. A shaking that
intensifies with action such as picking up a heavy object are known as an
action tremors. Resting tremors occur when the person affected is at rest.
Causes of tremors may, include alcoholism, drug withdrawal, thyroid
conditions, and heavy metal poisoning. Some tremors can occur as a side
effect of drugs, and therefore, may be treatable when a drug is stopped.

Resting tremors may be caused by antipsychotic medications like halo-
per idol (Haldol) or olanzapine (Zyprexa). Action tremors are reported to
occur with different medicines including thyroid medications, lithium,
certain seizure drugs, theophylline, and many antidepressant medicines.
Tremors associated with antidepressants can occur with normal drug
doses. When a tremor is thought to be drug-related, the prescribing
physician may decide to stop the suspected drug change the dose, or
switch to a different drug.. 140407JRS-F

World famous illusionist Andre Kole will perform at the First Baptist Church Family
Ministry Building on Friday, February 18 & Saturday, February 19 at 7:00 p.m.! Considered to
be one of the great magical entertainers of our time, Andre Kole has performed in 78
countries of the world for millions of people. In addition, he has appeared on national
television in over 40 countries.
Kole is also a leading inventor of magical effects and for a number of years owned a
successful business that built and marketed magical inventions that he had developed. In
addition to holding the highest award from the Academy of Magical Arts in Hollywood, Kole
is a creative consultant for David Copperfield, probably the best known magician in the
world today.
Years ago, Kole was challenged to examine the miracles of Jesus Christ from the
standpoint of an illusionist and a skeptic to determine if the miracles of Christ could have
been the work of a master magician. In making his investigation, he says, he made some
discoveries that changed the course of his life, and he will share some of these findings
during his performance.
The program is being sponsored locally by First Baptist Church. Tickets are $5 each and
may be purchased at the church office located at 401 West Howard Street, as well as the Bible
Book Store, Cheek & Scott Drugs (both Live Oak locations), W.B. Howland's Home
Improvement Warehouse, the Live Oak Christian Outlet in the Wal-Mart shopping center,
Live Oak Pest Control, and the Dixie Grill. A nursery will be provided for pre-school age
children.

LOPD Officer Alfredo
Moreno was called to 604
King Street to investigate a
report of a disturbance. Once
there, McLeod said, several
individuals told the officer a
man was shooting into their
residence.
Moreno saw a suspect on
the west side of the residence
in a wooded area and ordered
him to stop after noticing
something shiny in his hand.
However, the suspect later
identified as Armando San-
tana Santiago, 38, ran into
the woods. A short time later,
the suspect returned to the
house where Moreno found
him, sitting on a bed holding
a jacket. Santiago refused to
obey commands of Moreno
and other offices who ar-
rived on the scene and was
subsequently tased, McLeod
said. After the officers had
Santiago in custody, they
discovered a handgun in


Santiago's jacket pocket.
Santiago was taken to the
Suwannee County Jail where
he became aggressive and
threatened to kill Officer
Moreno, McLeod said. "Due
to his aggressive behavior
toward the officers, it be-
came necessary to tase San-
tiago a second time,"
McLeod said. Once at the
jail officers found a small
baggie of marijuana in Santi-
ago's possession, McLeod
said.
Santiago was charged with
four counts of aggravated as-
sault, burglary, using a
firearm under the influence,
corruption by threat against
law enforcement officers,
two counts of resisting a law
enforcement officer without
violence and introduction of
contraband into a detention
facility.

on Jan. 17 she was announced
the winner.
Allen was recognized at the
Florida African American Ed-
ucation Alliance's Annual
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
celebration, honoring African
American students, educators
and community leaders. The
event was held in Orlando
with Governor Jeb Bush as the
keynote speaker.
"I thank God for giving me
the gift of teaching, which has
been one of the most reward-
ing experiences of my life,"
Allen said. "This award is one
of the greatest achievements
of my professional career."
Currently, Allen is the Lead
Educator for Seminole Work
and Learn Center, a juvenile
residential commitment facili-
ty in Tallahassee. She has
worked independently to de-
velop a "system that works"
for at-risk youths for the past
five years. This population of


youth consists of all boys
ranging from 13-18 years of
age. Most of these students
have been suspended from
their home schools for crimes
committed within their com-
munity.
Allen is a strict disciplinari-
an, and has inspired many at-
risk students who had previ-
ously been truant and dropped
out of school to continue their
education. For example, a
sixth grade student comment-
ed, "Ms. Allen believes in me.
She always gave me positive
feedback and constructive
criticism. When I first came to
this, program, I was perform-
ing on a 3.6 (third grade) level
in math. Now I am excited


about education. I passed the
FCAT, Writes Upon Request,
and increased my academic
performance level to an 11.1
(11th grade) in math. Now I
want to finish school."
"I share your beliefs and ap-
plaud your accomplishments
in providing a learning envi-
ronment that ensures quality
education for all students,
your ability to understand stu-
dents' needs and effectively
engage them in meaningful
learning experiences speaks
greatly to your level of dedica-
tion and positive outlook on
teaching," Gov. Bush stated in
a correspondence to Allen.
Allen was also recognized
by the Florida Center for


Teachers/Florida Humanities
Council for her passion for
learning and commitment to
excellence in education. She
was selected form a statewide
pool of applicants to attend a
seminar designed to recognize
and reward Florida's Best
Teachers.
Allen's family was there to
salute her for her exceptional
accomplishments in life when
she received the award from
Gov. Bush.
Allen is the daughter of Ma-
halia (employee of Suwannee
County Schools) and Johnnie
Allen, sister of Angelia
Demps (Tallahassee), Marcus
Allen (Philadelphia, PA), and
Johnnie Allen, Jr. (Kentucky).

dent, Lane said, told her he
knew it was against the law and
he realized he was going to jail.
Lane said she and SES As-
sistant Principal Lila Udell then
went to a classroom where they
talked with the student suspect-
ed of having brought the mari-
juana to school. That student
told Lane and Udell that he had
found the marijuana by his
house and admitted to bringing
it to school in his book bag
with the intention of selling it
for $15.
Because they are minors and
the charges are misdemeanors,
the names of the students can-
not be legally released. Howev-
er, both were charged. One was
charged with possession of less
than 20 grams of marijuana
while the other was charged
with distribution of less than 20
gr.ImT,. o" n'marinulana Both
charges are misdeineanors
The students were released
into their parents' custody after
being processed at the Suwan-
nee County Jail, according to
the Suwannee County Sheriffs
Office.
The fifth graders' legal case
will be handled through the De-
partment of Juvenile Justice,


according to the Sheriffs Of-
fice.
"This is a tragedy to know
we are experiencing this type
of behavior at such an early
age," Suwannee County School
Superintendent Walter Boa-
tright stated.
Suwannee Elementary Prin-
cipal Steven Bass will make a
recommendation to Boatright
regarding what actions to take
against the students. A decision
for suspension or expulsion
from school will be brought
before the school board and ac-
tions may be forthcoming.
In the Branford case, three
students at Branford High
School were. arrested for pos-
session of less than 20 grams
of marijuana and drug para-
phernalia Feb. 1. According to
the Suwannee County Sher-
iff's Office report filed by
Deputy Robert Morris, some-
one reported to the school ad-
irinisrration that someone had
been smoking a marijuana pipe
on a school bus that morning.
One student, a juvenile, later
admitted to smoking a pipe
containing marijuana on the
school bus on the way to
school, the report said. Accord-
ing to Morris' report, the pipe
was brought on a school bus


that morning by Jeffrey Crow-
son, 18, of Wellborn. It was
there, the juvenile said, that he
smoked the marijuana.
As the investigation grew,
another student was found
with the pipe and also charged.
That student, a juvenile, said
he was hiding the pipe under
his desk so the other person
wouldn't get caught with it.
Both juveniles were charged
with possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana and pos-
session of drug paraphernalia,
according to Morris' report. A
field test was performed on the
pipe, which tested positive for
marijuana. The pipe, its con-
tents, and the field test was
sent to the FDLE crime lab for
further testing.
The three students were ar-
rested and taken to Suwannee
County Jail where Crowson
was also charged with posses-
sion of less than 20 grams of
marijuana and possession of
drug paraphernalia. The juve-
niles were released into their
parents' custody and Depart-
ment of Juvenile Justice was
notified.

Huron, SD. Currently, eight ex-Bulldogs
attend Si Tanka and play for Wheeler. As
Assistant Football Recruiter for Si Tanka,

to do that."

Earlier this year Wheeler
was promoted to Defensive
Coordinator. When his head
coach resigned over the
Christmas vacation, an inter-
im coach was appointed.
When he also resigned,
Wheeler got the job.
"Right now, I plan to focus
on recruiting in-state,"
Wheeler said. "But I will be
traveling around to Texas and
Florida, tapping into my
alumni base looking for re-
cruits."
Wheeler is a real Suwannee
success story. SHS football
coach Richard Allen remem-
bered him from middle-
school days. "He was mean,
short-fused in middle school,"
Allen said. "He changed some
when he went to high school
and played for Mike Pittman.
He's a real success story. He's
one you never would have
guessed would be in the ca-
pacity he is in today."


According to Allen, Wheel-
er's goal had always been the
NFL. "He didn't make it. But
he didn't quit," Allen said.
Wheeler played defensive
end for Suwannee in 1995 as
a senior. After high school,
Wheeler attended Westmar
University in Iowa for two
years then went to Si Tan-
ka/Huron University, to play.
Wheeler was a two-time All-
American linebacker.
Wheeler's mother, Ernes-
tine Wheeler lives in Live
Oak. He has a wife, Kenya
Wheeler and two girls Kelis
and Katey.
There are several boys from
the 2005 graduating class that
Wheeler has his eye on for Si
Tanka. He plans to visit Live
Oak in February and shop
Suwannee again. Congratula-
tions Shane.

she wouldn't be able to finish
the 800," Vickie said.
LeBlanc placed sixth over-
all in the seven events. She
placed fourth in her favorite
event, the hurdles, threw 30'
in the shot put which was a
good score for her and placed
second in her heat in the 800.


Her high jump was a little
short, according to Vickie, just
4'8". She jumped 17' in the
long jump.

FWC removes minimum


acreage requirement for


farmers needing to control deer


In Panama City Beach to-
day, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife.Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) approved a
new rule that will grant
small-acreage farmers the
same latitude larger growers
have in controlling nuisance
deer on their property during
the hunting season.
Previously, only landown-
ers with more than 640 acres


could get permits to take
antlerless deer during the
hunting season. Antlerless
deer include does and bucks
with visible antlers less than
five inches long.
The new rule will enable
the FWC to issue antlerless
deer permits to farmers who
received deer depredation
permits for crop damage
within the previous 12


months regardless of the
amount of acreage owned.
Beginning July 1, persons
possessing this permit and
associated tags can take
antlerless deer during the
muzzleloading, archery and
general gun seasons while
on their property.
For further information on
this rule change, visit
MyFWC.com.

David Green back on track after kidney stone


David Green wasn't able
to get on the track on his first
day of Busch Series testing
in preparation for the sea-
son-opening Hershey's Take
5 300.
While doing a morning in-
terview session in the infield
media center, Green, driver
of the No. 27 Kleenex Ford
for Brewco Motorsports,


could not take the pain any-
more in his side and was tak-
en to the Halifax Medical
Center where he was diag-
nosed with a kidney stone.
"There's nothing like that
kind of feeling," Green said
during the lunch break of the
final day of January testing.
"The hospital is the best
place for you and they could-


n't get me there fast enough
after I left here. Aaron Fike
drove my car a little bit. We
had tested Talladega, so I
had driven both of our cars,
down there and was very ex-
cited about our new Ford
Tauruses. I was geared up
and ready to go.
"Out of all winter long for
this kidney stone to hit, why


did it pick the first day of
testing? But, at least it's be-
hind us now. I got in the car
at one (on Saturday) and
made one single run and then
went out and drafted. (Team-
mate Greg) Biffle drove my
car prior to lunchtime, and
he liked how it felt, so when
I got in it it felt good to me,
too."


Old faces, fresh faces ready to mix it up


in Florida Dodge Dealers 250 at Daytona


When Carl Edwards cap-
tured the inaugural nighttime
running of the Florida Dodge
Dealers 250 NASCAR Crafts-
man Truck Series race during
Speedweeks 2004 at Daytona
International Speedway, he
parked his No. 99 Superchips
Ford on the start/finish line and
treated the crowd with his tra-
ditional back flip and cart
wheel.
Said Edwards of his first
Daytona victory: "We're here.
We're at Daytona. I'm standing
in Victory Lane. I'm living the
dream of every racer on the
planet."
Edwards, who will make the
move to the NASCAR NEX-
TEL Cup Series and Busch Se-
ries in 2005, is not expected to
return on Friday night, Feb. 18
to defend his victory, but
there's plenty of new competi-
tion on the scene that will fight
with the best of the Craftsman
Truck Series in the 100-lap,
250-mile race.
Ron Hornaday, who captured
two Craftsman Truck Series
chatipiotnsliips with Dale Earn-
hardt Inc., returns to the series
fulltime in 2005 driving the


No. 6 GM Goodwrench
Chevrolet for Kevin Harvick
Inc.
"It's pretty cool to be coming
back to the NASCAR Crafts-
man Truck Series," Hornaday
said. "I just enjoy it. I've got a
lot of wins over there and kind
of made it my home. When
Dale (Earnhardt Sr.) gave me
that call seven or eight years
ago to come back to North Car-
olina and drive his truck, it was
pretty cool. Right now, to have
Kevin Harvick and GM Good-
wrench on the side, to come
back and run the Craftsman
Truck Series is going to be fun.
"It's going to be cool to race
at Daytona. That's where the
season is supposed to start.
That's a big deal. Daytona's the
neatest track there ever was,
and the trucks definitely put on
the best show there, so I'm re-
ally looking forward to it."
Homaday is expected to re-
new rivalries with three-time
Craftsman Truck Series cham-
pion Jack Sprague and Mike
Skinner, who won the inaugur-
al Crafisnai.u Truck Series
championship in 1995.
Newcomers to the series in-


clude Roush Racing's Ricky
Craven and Todd Kluever and
Billy Ballew Motorsports' Ker-
ry Earnhardt. Craven, who is a
veteran of the NASCAR NEX-
TEL Cup Series, is excited
about the prospects of racing a
truck underneath the lights at
Daytona.
"Racing at Daytona period is
exciting," said Craven, who
will wheel the No. 99 Super-
chips Ford formerly driven by
Edwards. "It's a dream for any
young racer and as you get old-
er, the dream sort of transfers to
the reality. Being successful
and actually winning an event
at Daytona will be my focus in
February."
The returning cast of drivers
to the Craftsman Truck Series
includes 2004 Craftsman Truck
Series champion Bobby Hamil-
ton, 2003 Florida Dodge Deal-
ers 250 winner Rick Crawford,
Ted Musgrave, Dennis Setzer,
Raybestos Rookie of the Year
David Reutimann and David
.Starr.

of the Crown Royal IROC


XXIX, the 25th consecutive
year that the Crown Royal Se-
ries has opened its season at
Daytona International Speed-
way.
The Crown Royal IROC Se-
ries features 12 of the best dri-
vers in the world in identically
prepared IROC cars in a four-
race season that showcases the
skill of the drivers involved.
In last year's 40-lap event,
Ryan Newman slipped past
Kurt Busch on the last lap to
capture his second career victo-
ry at "The World Center of
Racing." Newman won the Ad-
vance Discount Auto Parts 200
ARCA RE/MAX Series race in
2001.
Entering the tri-oval, New-
man ducked his No. 12 car un-
derneath the yellow line to pass
Busch's No. 97 car. Officials
ruled the pass legal because
Busch blocked Newman's at-
tempt to pass.

Sixth-generation Corvette to pace the 47th Annual Daytona 500

Pace car unveiled on national TV morning show


Dale Earnhardt Jr., the 2004
Daytona 500 champion, un-
veiled the all-new 2005
Corvette that will pace the
47th annual Daytona 500
NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Se-
ries season opener during the

tigious event at historic Day-
tona International Speedway.
"The all-new 2005 Corvette
brings more power, more pre-
cision and more passion to dri-
vers than any Corvette in his-
tory making it a natural fit to
pace this historic race," said
Brent Dewar, Chevrolet gener-
al manger.

sands of fans."
The 43-car field that will be
led by the Chevrolet Corvette
pace vehicle will be battling
for a record purse of
$17,623,980, the richest in
stock car racing history. Ash-
ton Kutcher, the popular star
of FOX's "That '70s Show"
and the star of the upcoming
feature film "Guess Who,"
will serve as Honorary Starter
and wave the green flag to
start the Daytona 500, which
will be televised live on FOX.

Green, the 1994 Busch Se-
ries champion and the pole
winner of the Hershey's Take
5 300 in 1991, always has
penchant for arriving early at
Daytona International
Speedway for Speedweeks.
Many times, you'll find him
roaming through the garage
at least a week before the
Hershey's Take 5 300.
"I think one reason why I
like it is because I've been
coming down here a long
time and it's a time to get the
wheels rolling for the sea-
son," said, Green, who ex-
pects to begin staying in
Daytona on Wednesday, Feb.
9. "When I missed (Satur-
day) because of being in. the
hospital, I really felt like I
was a day behind yesterday.
I felt like I missed my flight
and I got here late. By get-
ting down here early for the
race weekend, you really get
in tune with it."
Assistant Principal Turns
Racer: Kim Crosby said
during a break in Busch Se-
ries testing that she has quit
her job as an assistant princi-
pal to running a full Busch
Series schedule. Crosby re-


signed from Slidell Junior
High in Slidell, La., to focus
driving the No. 24
Boudreaux's Butt Paste
Chevrolet in the 2005 Busch
Series season.
."I ran five Busch races last
year along with being a prin-
cipal at a junior high
school," Crosby said. "Try-
ing to do both of those I did-
n't feel like I was doing both
professions justice. The
school system was very sup-
portive, but I just felt like I
needed to make a choice and
follow my dream and go into
driving full-time."
Crosby and her GIC/PSE
team have modest goals for
their first full-time season
together.
"A good season for me a
great season would be to
qualify for every single race,
on speed," Crosby said. "Re-
gardless of. the finishes,
making the field is very im-
portant to myself and the
team."

Huge crop of Florida tomatoes remains unpicked in
field while public perceives a shortage Bronson says


I el ft 0


Acres of Florida tomatoes
remain unpicked while the
general public still perceives a
shortage, Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson was told by growers
during a tour of South Florida
tomato farms recently.
"I was shocked to see acre
upon acre of unharvested
tomatoes," Bronson said after
visiting tomato farms in
Homestead. "The perception
of a tomato shortage still re-
mains in the mind of the pub-
lic. As a---result, consumers
aren't buying tomatoes, retail
grocers and restaurants aren't
placing orders, and our grow-
ers are facing disaster because
they can't sell their crop."
Bronson said that, while
there was a short-term shortage
of tomatoes immediately after
the state's destructive hurri-
cane season, Florida's farmers
replanted and there now is ah
abundance of fresh tomatoes.
"Florida's tomato farmers
worked hard to get back in
business following the hurri-
canes, but are now frustrated as
their crop remains in the field
because they can't find buy-
ers," Bronson said. "Even
with this abundant tomato sup-
ply, we're still hearing stories
that some restaurants and fast-
food establishments are still
limiting tomatoes or not serv-
ing them at all." t
Retail grocery prices for
tomatoes, which had peaked at
nearly $4 per pound in October
and November, have begun re-
turning to more normal levels.
Bronson was told by growers
that they are receiving 15 to 20
cents per pound for their toma-
toes.
Bronson told growers he has
directed his Division of Mar-
keting and Development to as-
sist them in moving the current
tomato crop into the market-
place.
"We want American con-
sumers to know that Florida is
back in the fresh tomato busi-
ness," Bronson said. "We en-
courage corporate buyers for
grocery chains and restaurants
to move swiftly to help satisfy
consumers' pent-up demand
for this delicious and healthy
product."
Florida's devastating hurri-
cane season which destroyed
tomatoes in the field and de-
layed planting of new crops -
had contributed to a short-term
shortage of fresh tomatoes in
much of the country. The situ-
ation was exacerbated by prob-
lems in other tomato-produc-
ing areas (heavy rains during
the harvest season in Califor-
nia and a continuing pest prob-
lem in Mexico). As a result,
many consumers saw empty


tomato bins in their grocery
stores or restaurant menus in-
dicating that tomatoes were
available only by special re-
quest or, in some cases, not at
all.
An unprecedented four ma-
jor hurricanes Charley,
Frances, Ivan and Jeanne -

for last week's Speedfest and
the World Series of Asphalt
Stock Car Racing, jumped to
the early lead over Fontaine,
Daryl Shelnut, Mike Garvey
and Travis Kittleson. Kittleson
wasted no time moving into
third then second as Kittleson
was on a mission to honor his
late Crew Chief.
Mac Johnson brought out the
caution on lap 6 as he spun on
the backstretch but was able to
get going fairly fast. Landis
holds the point on the restart
followed by Kittleson, Garvey,
Shelnut and Fontaine.
Now it is Justin Drawdy who
is on the move with the same
goal in mind as Kittleson, to.
honor his late Crew Chief and
friend Pete. Drawdy moves
into the top five just as the sec-
ond caution comes out for Chris
Fontaine who has spun on the
frontstretch.
Drawdy, who set fast time,
once again found the "monkey
on his back" as he had to with-
draw from the race on lap 36
with mechanical problems.
Daryl Shelnut brought out the
third caution as he spun in turns
1 and 2. The race was then red
flagged to check all the cars for
leaking as there was fluid on the
track. It was determined that
Shelnut was leaking as he re-
tired from the race disappoint-
ed. Shelnut has not run at New

Smyrna Speedway for some
time and it was great having
him back again. Hopefully we
will see more of him in 2005.
After leading for the first
fifty laps, Landis sees Travis
Kittleson take over as Garvey
goes into second and Landis
third. It looks like Kittleson
will finally get his biggest de-
sire but 49 more laps are left
still to race.
Lap 64 Mac Johnson and Jay
Middleton get together on the
backstretch. Both are fine and
return to the race in the rear of
the field. Kittleson holds the
point on the restart but Garvey
finds himself going side-by-
side with Jeff Choquette, win-
ner of the last three races at
New Smyrna. Choquette
shows "he's the man" and takes
over second.
Lap 79 sees i Daniel
Webster get a flat coming off
turn 3 and goes into the turn 4
wall. Webster is fine but his car
is not as he retires into the pits
for the night. Kittleson holds
the point on the restart followed
by Choquette, Garvey, Landis
and James Powell III.
Lap 92 Mac Johnson brings
out the caution as he spins in
turns 3 and 4. The race goes
back green with Kittleson in the
lead but Choquette is on the
move. Kittleson is fighting
hard to retain the lead but gets

as Kittleson settles into third.
Choquette takes his fourth win
in a row at New Smyrna fol-
lowed by Mike Garvey, Travis
Kittleson, Jack Landis and

Choquette never knew Pete Orr,
he understood the importance
of this win to Kittleson and
Drawdy.
In other action at New Smyr-
na, Chad Akins took the win
over Scott Bishop in the Quick
Kids.
Steve Smith had the pole for

lowed by Alli Owens, David

Ripley..

burned right in front of him.

May who took the lead over
Murphy followed by Lee

Glaucoma

What you don't know

can blind you
Did you know that you could be at risk for glaucoma, an eye disease that has virtually
no early symptoms, but can cause vision loss or even blindness? According to The
American Academy of Ophthalmology, glaucoma is one of the leading causes of
blindness in the United States, and the most common cause of blindness among African
Americans. It affects more than 3
million people in the United States
"l ^ ^ alone. As many as half do not even
know they have it because there are
i no symptoms in its early stages, when
.,, .' treatment is the most effective and
r vision loss can usually be prevented.
SSo read on about this disease to
educate yourself.
What is glaucoma? Glaucoma is a
4.. i. disease of the optic nerve, which is
the part of the eye that carries the
images we see to the brain. It is made
5. of many nerve fibers, like an electric
:: cable containing numerous wires.
SWhen the natural fluid in the eye
drains improperly, pressure within the
eye usually increases, damaging the
optic nerve. As optic nerve fibers are
If left unchecked, glaucoma will cause permanent damaged by glaucoma, small blind
vision problems, including blindness, spots begin to develop which are not
noticeable at first. Often called the
"sneak thief of sight," glaucoma usually does not cause pain or other symptoms, but it
will cause permanent vision loss -- including blindness -- if left unchecked.
Who gets it? People who are at the greatest risk for developing glaucoma include:
Immediate family members of people with glaucoma
People of African ancestry
People who are age 50 or over
Family history of glaucoma and race are major risk factors for glaucoma. The
American Academy of Ophthal-mology reports that African Americans are four times
more likely to have the disease than Caucasians, but only half as likely to be treated for
it, and it often occurs earlier in life. Studies show that African American's between ages
45 and 65 are 14 to 17 times more likely to go blind from glaucoma than Caucasians in
the same age group who have the disease. Although glaucoma can occur in people of all
ages, it primarily affects older adults.
How is it detected? Because glaucoma typically does not cause noticeable vision
problems, one of the best ways to prevent vision loss is to have a regular glaucoma eye
exam by an ophthalmologist, which may include:
Questions about your family's medical and eye history
Measurement of the pressure in your eye (however, a pressure test alone is not an
adequate glaucoma test)
Examination of your optic nerve (which may require dilating your pupils)
A test of your field of vision
How is it treated? Glaucoma cannot be cured, but it can be controlled with proper
medical treatment. Unfortunately, vision loss from glaucoma cannot be restored.
However, glaucoma treatment helps slow or prevent further damage by reducing
pressure in your eye. If you are found to have glaucoma, your ophthalmologist may
treat it with eye drops, medication, laser surgery or incisional surgery.
How often should I have an eye exam? The American Academy of Ophthalmology
recommends you get an eye exam every two to four years if you are age 30 or over, and
every one to two years if:
A family member has glaucoma o l Fo~e 0.O :...AA. mark A. .oom.,111, O.D.
You are age 50 or over Kimberly M. Broome, O.D. Julie L. Owens, O.D.
You are of African ancestry and are age
40 or over
Are you at risk for glaucoma? In addition r t
to your family history, race and age, people
who are diabetic, very near-sighted, use
steroid medication or who have had past eye I
injuries may also be at higher risk for oia
developing glaucoma. If you have any of
these risk factors for glaucoma, if your
vision is sometimes blurred, you see halos
around lights or have eyeeye pain, The y eC a re
American Academy of Ophthalmology
recommends that you schedule an eye exam Examination and Treatment of the Eye
with an ophthalmologist as soon as possible. Examion andTreatnt the Eye
