During the 57th Annual Suwannee
County Chamber of Commerce Meeting
and Installation Banquet Feb. 10, more
than 200 guests enjoyed a delicious meal
at First Baptist Church's Family Ministry
Building and honored award winners.
Selected as the Citizens of the Year were
George and Betty Poucher, local farmers
who have been very active in the commu-
nity and in the local and state Florida Farm
Bureau. Rep. Dwight Stansel was selected
to introduce the Pouchers and say a few
words about them. Stansel said if he didn't
already a great mother and father, he
would be proud to call the Pouchers his
parents. The Pouchers moved back to

Police chase ends with arrests


Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
A drug-deal allegedly gone bad yielded
a wild half hour police chase through
Live Oak and east of the city at about 3
p.m. Feb. 15 then finally ended near US
90 and Interstate 10 with the arrest of two
people.
No one was seriously injured in the
long chase, although the suspect drove
through yards and never stopped at any
stop sign nor obeyed any speed limits, po-
lice said.
The incident began after Live Oak Po-
lipe O'~fler Derek l. i. i-litLi said he ob-
served a man hand something to a person
inside a pickup truck at Irvin Avenue and
Ninth Street, an area known for narcotics
activities, he said. When Slaughter drove

Crist warns consumers


of new twist on old scam ....

IMPORTANT CONSUMER ADVISORY -


Attorney General Charlie
Crist today advised consumers
,of a new and aggressive finan-
cial scam that leaves no Florid-
,ian immune from attack - in-
Scluding the Attorney General
-.himself. Last week, Crist re-
ceivedtwo cashier's checks to-
-taling $21,000 attempting to
draw the AttorneyGeneral into
- the latest variation of a familiar
- scam.
For more than two decades,
authorities have battled an in-
ternational mail scheme com-
monly known as the "Nigerian
SBank Scam." In its traditional
form, the scam involves a
Promise that an individual will
pay the victim from a large
..pool of money being held
'overseas, if the victim first
sends a smaller amount of
:.money as "security." The vic-
tim sends the money but then
never again hears from the
', sender.
Recently, a new twist on the
old system has emerged. In this
variation, the victim receives a
cashier's check in the mail or
-via overnight delivery. The
.check is for a large sum of
.money from what appears to
.be a nationally recognized
banking institution. No expla-
nation accompanies the check,
but the victim may attempt to
deposit it into his or her bank
account. Should the victim's
bank accept the deposit, the
check is routed to the financial
Institution of origin, where it is
, discovered that the account has
been closed. The check is then
forwarded to the original hold-
er of the closed account, who

now has the victim's banking
information. It can take some
time for the victim to realize
that the integrity of his or her
bank account has been com-
promised.
"The audacity of these crim-
inals is breathtaking," said
Crist. "It's clear that these
scam artists will stop at noth-
ing, and spare no one, in their
shameless ploy to make a
quick buck. This is a vivid re-
minder that if something
sounds too good to be true, it
probably is. It is important that
all Florida consumers are
aware of this threat."
Crist is a leader in efforts
against identity theft and other
scams, and immediately recog-
nized that the cashier's checks
were of dubious authenticity.
He contacted the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement
to alert them to the scheme.
FDLE confirmed that the
checks are indeed part of a
scam, and said it appears to be
a variant on the traditional
Nigerian check scam. FDLE is
now investigating this new de-
velopment.
Consumers who receive any
type of similar cashier's check
or solicitation to participate in
an advanced pay scheme
should immediately contact
their local U.S. Secret Service
office. Attorney General Crist
also offers these suggestions to
avoid becoming the victim of
such a scheme:
- Avoid providing your per-
sonal or banking information
to any unknown person or
business.

Tuition and fees deduction: Who qualifies and how?


Those facing skyrocketing
college tuition bills will want to
learn as much as possible about
how the tuition and fee deduc-
tion can lower their tax bills.
Before filing your 2004 tax re-
turn, read the Florida Society of
Certified Public Accountants'
(FICPA) responses to the most
common questions about this
deduction.
* What is the tax benefit of the
tuition and fees deduction?
This deduction can reduce the
amount of your income that is
subject to tax by up to a maxi-
mum of $4,000 on your 2004
tax return - that's up from


$3,000 in 2003. The tuition de-
duction is taken as an adjust-
ment to gross income, which
means you can claim this de-
duction even if you do not item-
ize.
* Who is eligible for the tu-
ition deduction?
You may be able to deduct
qualified education expenses
paid during the year for your-
self, your spouse, or a depen-
dent. The amount you can
deduct depends on your modi-
fied adjusted gross income
(MAGI). You are not eligible
for the tuition deduction if an-
other person can claim an ex-


emption for you as a dependent.
Also excluded are married per-
sons filing separately.
* What is the amount of the
tuition and fees deduction for
2004?
For 2004, you qualify for the
maximum deduction of $4,000
if your MAGI is not more than
$65,000 for single filers and
$130,000 for married taxpayers
filing jointly. If you're a single
filer and your MAGI is more
than $65,000 but not more than
$80,000, your deduction is lim-
ited to $2,000. The $2,000 de-
duction also applies to joint fil-
ers whose MAGI is higher than
$130,000, but not more than
$160,000. No tuition and fees
deduction is allowed if your
MAGI exceeds $80,000 for sin-
gle filers and $160,000 for joint
filers. The $4,000 maximum de-
duction remains in effect in
2005 after which it is scheduled
to expire.
* What education expenses
qualify?
Qualified expenses include
tuition and fees but not books,
personal or living expenses,
such as room and board. The
costs of course-related books
and supplies are not considered
qualified education expenses
unless these expenses must be
paid to the institution as a condi-
tion of enrollment or atten-
dance.
* What if 1 use funds from a
Coverdell Education Savings
Account to pay for tuition and
expenses?
When you pay your tuition
with tax-advantaged education
funds from a Coverdell Educa-
tion Savings Account or a state
tuition plan, or with the interest


on U.S. savings bonds, these
amounts must be subtracted
from your qualified expenses to
arrive at the deductible amount.
The same rule applies to any
nontaxable employer-provided
education benefits you receive.
* What about graduate
school?
Graduate or undergraduate
level college courses can be de-
ducted and you don't have to be
a full-time student to qualify.
However, the educational insti-
tution must be eligible to partic-
ipate in the student aid programs
administered by the Department
of Education. Virtually all ac-
credited public, nonprofit and
proprietary postsecondary insti-
tutions are eligible.
* What if I have two children
in college at the same time?
The tuition and fees deduc-
tion is $4,000 total per year, re-
gardless of.how many depen-
dents are in school at the same
time.
* Can I take either the hope or
lifetime learning credit and the
tuition deduction?
No, you cannot claim the tu-
ition deduction if you also take
the Hope or Lifetime Learning
credit for the same student in the
same year. Be aware that credits
are typically more beneficial.
So, before you take the tuition
deduction, determine whether
you can qualify for either of the
two education credits.
* Where can I get more help?
Check the Internal Revenue
Service Web site at www.irs.gov
or consult with a Certified Pub-
lic Accountant if you would like
to learn more about how the tu-
ition and fees deduction can
save you valuable tdx dollars.

OPINION

Like ducks in

a shooting gallery?
There are
few cere-
monies as
impressive
S as the inau-
Sa d g B duration of a
president.
Regardless
BY JACK FARIS of one's po-
BY JACK FARIS litical views,
this awe-
some tradition is reassuring to all who truly believe
in a democratic government. But on Inauguration
Day, the roar of the cannons had hardly stopped
echoing on Capitol Hill before it was displaced by
the plinking of partisan potshots. The reverential at-
mosphere quickly reverted to a carnival-like air.
Small-business owners, their spirits lofted by the
historical demonstration, suddenly found themselves
like the ducks in a shooting gallery when anti-small-
business lawmakers floated an amendment that
would raise the federal minimum wage to $7 an
hour.
Already bobbing and weaving to survive a wither-
ing fire of rapidly-rising health-care costs, excessive
government regulations and oppressive taxes, these
entrepreneurs are struggling mightily to maintain
their self-images as eagles of free,.e.neprije. U nfor-
tunately, while they see themselves soaring on wings
of hard work, determination and passion for the
American dream, too many politicians view them as
targets for an ill-conceived social agenda.
Few elected officials have ever experienced the
roller-coaster thrills of starting a small business.
True, there are lots of ups-and-downs, but the opti-
mistic nature of those who dare to take risks and
start a business is such that they believe they can not
only survive the initial wild ride, but also direct the
coaster so that it goes in only one direction-up to-
wards success.
Far too many of these elected officials don't have
a clue that their misdirected ideas are dangerous ob-
stacles tossed onto the tracks of free enterprise.
They can derail the sector of the nation's economy
that generates the greatest share of new jobs and in-
troduces future generations of entrepreneurs to vir-
tually unlimited opportunities.
"Step right up," the politicos yell like side-show
barkers. "Take yer chances and raise the minimum
wage to seven dollars. Pay no attention to the fact
that an overwhelming majority of economists say
such a step will kill jobs. Don't worry about manda-
tory pay increases reducing employment opportuni-
ties for those people with the lowest skills."
"Take good aim and bull's-eye this wage hike," the
carnies bellow. "These small businesses can survive
a 36 percent increase in labor costs on top of every-
thing else that they're targets for. Don't worry about
a ripple effect on the nation's economy. Don't be
concerned over the inevitable cutbacks in health-
care coverage that will follow-just because small
firms are already facing 15 percent to 20 percent in-
creases in their health premiums is no reason to
fret."
Plinking away at the ducks in a shooting gallery
may seem like fun, but lawmakers who think small
businesses are easy targets might want to mark their
calendars for Election Day, 2006. That's when mil-
lions of American entrepreneurs will step right up
and have their turn at the politician-dunking booth.

I hope everyone had an enjoy-
able Valentine's. I saw a lot of
sweetheart activity going on that
special day. Hopefully you took
care of yours in an acceptable
manner. If not, it could be as
cold around your house ,as that
old well diggers shovel.
The city of Live Oak has nev-
er looked as nice, clean and at- BY SONNY
tractive as it does now. The street
sweeper has been busy lately. All paved streets should
be routinely swept. The city is trying to clean around our
own doorstep while we ask you to clean yours. Should
you see city property that needs some attention, let us
know. Is there something that can be done to your prop-
erty whether residential or business that can help beau-
tify the city of Live Oak? Step back and take a look at
your property. Does your storefront need painting or
maybe a good pressure washing. Maybe your flower
beds need cleaning and some new plants or flowers. The
appearance of your business can be helped by just pick-
ing up the paper and bottles in front of your store that
have been discarded by those inconsiderate litterbugs. I
look out my office window and see Raleigh and his em-
ployees at the Lantern policing their premises everyday.
An attractive and pleasing look can draw spenders or at
least shoppers to your business and put a little more jin-
gle in your register.
The final inspection was done on the downtown
Streetscape project. A punch list was compiled earlier of
things that needed to be completed or corrected by the
contractor. I continue to hear good things about the new
look. During a meeting I attended in Lake City I had
positive comments from folks over there. I just hope a
pilot does not get Ohio, M L K Avenue confused with an
airport run way and land on the street.
The traffic signals, red lights, at US 129 north and
Winderweedle will finally become a reality. The utility
and paving construction conference was held last week
and other preconstruction conferences will be held on
March 2. The project should begin soon after these
meetings. This "five legged" intersection is dangerous
and frankly a pain to maneuver through. I am surprised
that more accidents have not happened there. With the
new development and increased traffic on 129 N., this
-project is a must. The city has worked with FDOT to try
and re-configure this area but because of the way the
streets intersect 129, this is just not possible. The cost to
make these changes, was upwards of $1 million. DOT
cannot justify putting that much money in the project.
Don't forget you can avoid this intersection by using the
new by-pass road.
Speaking of the by-pass road, it has increased the traf-
fic considerably on Houston Avenue. There were 12 ac-
cidents at Houston and Duval Street this past year. At
their last meeting the Council approved proceeding with

WALTER WILLIAMS
�2005 Creators Syndicate


Part one of a
Last fall semester, I didn't
teach for the first time in 37
years. No, I haven't retired. It
was my semester-off reward for
two terms as department chair-
man at George Mason Univer-
sity. A break is well deserved
after a chairmanship - a job
not unlike that of herding cats.
During fall semesters, I typi-
cally teach our first-year Ph.D.


microeconomics theory course. Out of a love for teach-
ing, I've decided to not completely take off but deliver
a few lectures on basic economic principles to my read-
ership. We'll name the series "Economics for the Citi-
zen."
The first lesson in economic theory is that we live in
a world of scarcity. Scarcity is a situation whereby hu-
man wants exceed the means to satisfy those wants.
Human wants are assumed to be limitless, or at least
they don't frequently reveal their bounds. People al-
ways want more of something, be it: more cars, more
food, more love, more happiness, more peace, more
health care, more clean air or more charity. Our ability
and resources to satisfy all those wants are indeed lim-
ited. There's only a finite amount of: land, iron, work-
ers and years in a lifetime.
Scarcity produces several economic problems:
What's to be produced, who's going to get it, how's it
to be produced, and when is it to be produced? For ex-
ample, many Americans, and foreigners, too, would
love to have a home or vacation home along the thou-
sand miles of California, Oregon and Washington
coastline. Shipping companies would like to use some
of it as ports. The U.S. Defense Department would like
to use it for military installations. There's simply not
enough coastline to meet all the competing wants and
uses. That means there's conflict over coastline owner-
ship and its uses.
There are several methods of conflict resolution.
First, there's the market mechanism - let the highest
bidder be the one who owns and decides how the land


ten-part series
will be used. Then, there's government fiat, where the
government dictates who gets to use the land for what
purpose. Gifts might be the way where an owner arbi-
trarily chooses a recipient. Finally, violence is a way to
resolve the question of who has the use rights to the
coastline - let people get weapons and physically
fight it out.
At this juncture, some might piously say, "Violence is
no way to resolve conflict!" The heck it isn't. The de-
cision of who had the right to use most of the Earth's
surface was settled through violence (wars). Who has
the right to the income I earn is partially settled through
the threats of violence. In fact, violence is such an ef-
fective means of resolving conflict that most govern-
ments want a monopoly on its use.
Which is the best method, to resolve conflict issues
surrounding the questions of what's to be produced,.,
how and when it's produced, and who's going to get it?
Is it the market mechanism, government fiat, gifts or
violence? Before you attempt an answer - which I'll
give in the next lecture - be advised that it's a trick
question that easily traps many of my teeny-bopper
sophomore students and even a few graduate students.
I personally believe that economics is fun and valu-
able. People who say they found it a nightmare in col-
lege just didn't have a good teacher-professor. I became
a good teacher-professor as a result of tenacious men-
tors during my graduate study at UCLA. Professor Ar-
men Alchian, a very distinguished economist, used to
give me a hard time in class. But one day, we were hav-
ing a friendly chat during our department's weekly fac-
ulty/graduate student coffee hour, and he said,
"Williams, the true test of whether someone under-
stands his subject is whether he can explain it to some-
one who doesn't know a darn thing about it." That's a
challenge I love: making economics fun and under-
standable.

R S the possibility of placing a traffic
A.L .l., signal at this intersection. Since
CORNER Houston is a county road, the city
will be asking the county to con-
tribute to the cost for this signal.
It is estimated that it would cost
approximately $100,000 to install
the traffic signal. Public Works
Director Bob Farley has been
NOBLES scavenging and has acquired the
signal heads and controller box at
no charge. This should bring the cost down consider-
ably.
The School Traffic Taskforce that was formed several
years ago met this past week to address the traffic situa-
tion in the area of the schools. It is comprised of School
Board member Jerry Taylor, Commissioner Jesse
Caruthers, Recreation Director Greg Scott and myself.
DOT representatives were present at the meeting and
agreed to update the traffic study that was done several
years ago. This update is necessary due to the new
school and other ,developments planned in the area.
Hopefully we can keep the ball rolling and develop so-
lutions to help lessen the traffic congestion in the area.
The annual meeting and installation banquet of the
Suwannee County Chamber of Commerce was a very
nice affair. The food and entertainment was excellent.
Congratulations to those who won awards and received
recognition for their service to our community. You may
get tired of me heaping praises on the Chamber, but I
can't impress on you enough how hard they work and
what they do for our community. It's only through much
dedication and hard work that Dennis and Susan get
everything done that is placed on their plates. We are
lucky to have them and the Chamber Board members
that labor on your behalf.
Members of our Congressional Delegation will be vis-
iting our community in the near future. Congressman
Allen Boyd will be in City Hall on Feb. 21 from 9 a.m.
until 10:30 a.m. Sen. Bill Nelson will be here on Feb. 28
from 1 until 2 p.m. Make plans to welcome them and ex-
press your thoughts and concerns.
Don't forget the Black History Program at Ebenezer
AME Church on Feb. 19 beginning at 6 p.m. in the
evening. This is the 21st year the committee has spon-
sored the program. Make your plans to attend.
Looking for something new and different for enter-
tainment this weekend? The First Baptist Church of
Live Oak is sponsoring Christian Illusionist Andre Kole
this Friday and Saturday night. Kole uses magic trickery
in presenting his Christian ministry. I will participate in
the show Saturday night by having my head cut off. I
hope the equipment is functioning okay. I've never had
my head cut off before but on several occasions I have
managed to put both feet in my mouth at the same time.
There is nothing magic about how wearing your seat-
belt can save your life. Wear yours. It's the law

IT JUST ISN'T FAIR
If you think the deadliest form of
skin cancer, known as melanoma,
just poses a threat to fair-skinned
people, be advised that it is even
deadlier for African-Americans.
This may be partly due to the fact
that few dark-skinned people
expect it. The fact is that nearly
two-thirds of melanomas among
African-Americans occur in areas
of the body that get little sun
exposure, including the feet,
palms, and toenails. Other areas
that may unexpectedly be the site
of melanoma are the inside of the
mouth and nose. With this in
mind, if you see a suspicious
lesion on your body, bring it to the
immediate attention of a
dermatologist. With early
intervention, melanoma has a
95% cure rate.
If you would like further

SCommunity College.
- Photo: Submitteda
The North Florida Domestic
Security Task Force, com-
prised of local, state and feder-
al law enforcement, fire and
rescue, health and emergency
management agencies, held its
quarterly meeting at the North
Florida Community College
Career and Technical Center
Jan. 6 with more than 100 in
attendance.
According to Mike Ellis,
special agent supervisor for the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, the NFCC cam-
pus provides an ideal meeting
site for members of the Region
II North Florida Domestic Se-
curity Task Force, which
serves 13 counties in North
Florida spanning from Colum-
Sbia to Gadsen County includ-
"'ing the counties of' Madison,
Jefferson, Suwannee, Taylor,
Hamilton and Lafayette. The
task force is one of seven such
organizations in the state. Its
goal to meet quarterly helps
various agencies share infor-
mation, access needs and pre-
pare for domestic security
emergencies.
S Ellis commended NFCC for
he offering its facilities and for
da additionally hosting training
opportunities for law enforce-
ment and emergency
agencies.
In June 2004 NFCC hosted
an informative anti-terrorism
continuing education course
"Suicide Bombers and At-
tacks: What Law Enforcement
Needs to Understand" in
which Ellis and Leon County
Sheriff Larry Campbell, co-
chair of the Region II Domes-
tic Security Task Force, also
participated.
For more information, con-
tact the NFCC Criminal Jus-
tice Department at 850-973-
9405. To reserve NFCC facili-
ties, contact Claudette Alexan-
der at 850-973-9429.

posted a record of 4-6. The
previous season his team post-
ed a winning 7-4 season and
went to the first round of the
play-offs, according to Carroll
High Principal Laura
McBride. McBride was con-
tacted by phone Thursday
morning.
According to McBride, she
had a good working relation-
ship with Bennett. McBride
said she knew Bennett had
been searching for a new posi-
tion and had made two or
three contacts, including
Suwannee.
Bennett went to Ozark from
Desoto High School in Arca-
dia where his best season ever
was in 1998. He was named
the Highlands Today/Tampa
Tribune Coach of the Year in
that season where he led his
team to the third round of the
state championship.
Bennett is a Florida native.
He grew up in Arcadia, where


he also coached from 1995-
2000. He left Arcadia in
2001 to become the athletic
director and head football
coach at Carroll High
School. At Carroll High, his
teams made the state play-
offs in 2003 and 2004, ac-
cording to Suwannee County
Schools Personnel Director
and head of vocational adult
education Dr. Bill Brothers.
Bennett said he was very
sad to be leaving good kids
and such a great community.
"But I'm extremely excited
about coming to Live Oak,"
Bennett said. "It's a great
place to raise kids, and it has
a good football program."
Bennett said he plans to
run a spread shot-gun-type
offense. "I want to keep it as
similar as we can so the kids
won't have so much to learn
and will have as little change
as possible," Bennett said.
Bennett hosted a Wing-T
clinic at the Ozark Civic
Center Jan. 28 (ilavarsity.ri-


vals.com, click on messages
and check the coaches mes-
sage board for Ozark Wing-T
Clinic).
Bennett is currently the
athletic director for the
Ozark City School System
and the head football coach
for the Carroll High School
Eagles. Bennett graduated
from Desoto County High
School and participated in
football, golf and baseball.
He attended Georgia South-
ern and Warner Southern
College where he played
football as a wide receiver,
kicker and punter and ob-
tained a degree in physical
education.
Bennett is married and his
wife Amy teaches fifth-and
sixth-grades at East Gate
Middle School. The couple
has four daughters, Taylor
Anne, 12, Brooke and Brit-
tany, 7-year-old twins, and
Abby, 6.

folio reflects his dedication

up, the man on foot ran, but
Slaughter went to the truck
and questioned the driver
about what was going on.
When the driver, David Paul
Hester Jr., 32, showed the of-
ficer that he had money and
what appeared to be crack
cocaine in his hand, the offi-
cer said he grabbed for the
evidence. Hester hit the gas,
and Slaughter barely man-
aged to escape serious injury
as the truck pulled away
while the officer was still
partly inside the door's win-
dow. As Hester sped away
with passenger Susan Olson
Garrison, 41, both of 4274
85th Place, Slaughter called
for assistance and gave
chase. Hester then drove
south on Irvin, then east on
Orchard Street, south on
Scriven A~ enue across
Eleventh Street and onto
Bynum Avenue, then west on
Marymac Street, north on
Irvin Avenue, ran through


Nott Circle, north on Walker
Avenue, then west on Fifth
Street, west on Howard
Street, south to 133rd Road,
west on 80th Street, north on
139th Drive approaching
Mitchell Road. The vehicle
then entered a yard, striking a
utility pole and going back
south on 139th Drive to
Newbern Road and into
Emerald Forrest subdivision,
Slaughter wrote in his report.
Hester drove through the
back yard of a residence and
then headed back to Newbern
Road when he went west-
bound, then north on 161st
Road, east on US 90, north
on 139th Drive and onto
155th Drive. It was here,
near I-10 and US 90, that he
struck a small tree at the dead
end of this road and fled on
foot into a wooded area.
Suwannee County Sheriffs
Office Detectives Jeff
Cameron and Chris Fry were
monitoring the chase and
went to the area they thought
Hester has gone and spotted


him running barefoot. They
made the arrest without inci-
dent of both Hester and Gar-
rison. Others involved in the
chase quickly arrived on
scene.
Hester was charged with
violation of probation, aggra-
vated battery on a law en-
forcement office with a mo-
tor vehicle, purchase and
possession of cocaine, de-
struction of evidence, aggra-
vated fleeing and eluding a
law enforcement officer and
resisting an officer without
force.
Garrison was charged with
conspiracy to purchase co-
caine.
Both were taken to .the
Suwannee County Jail where
Garrison posted $2,500 bond
and was released. Hester re-
mains jailed without bond.
Slaughter's police cruiser
suffered mechanical prob-
lems resulting from the
chase, including minor dam-
age to the front bumper, the
officer wrote in his report.

Hands employee rewarded with



tickets to the


Super Bowl


Janet Schrader-Seccafico
Democrat Reporter
Twenty-five pairs of tickets to
Super Bowl XXXIX were
awarded to the most deserving
employees of Shands Health-
care. In the entire system, 25
lucky people got a pair of tick-
ets to attend., 25 lucky and de-
serving employees. Willie
Woodson was the lucky guy
from Shands at Live Oak that
was nominated to go to the Su-
per Bowl.
Woodson said he had the time
of his life. He sat next to Snoop
Dog, a popular and extremely
famous rap star, got invited to
go clubbing after the game with


Snoop and was even chauf-
feured in the Dog's hummer-
limo.
But the high-light of the day
was the Super Bowl itself. The
honored employees attended a
pre-game reception at Shands at
Jacksonville where he met
Shands Healthcare CEO Tim
Goldfarb. Woodson is a
Philadelphia Eagles fan. His
brother-in-law, John Jones, was
the man he took with him. Jones
is a New England Patriots fan.
The two cheered for their in-
dividual teams and Woodson
was the disappointed one, the
Eagles lost.

Woodson is a floor technician at
Shands at Live Oak.


"He was nominated for his
outstanding service," said
Shands at Live Oak Adminis-
trator Rhonda Sherrod. "He
doesn't do it for the recognition.


If there's something that needs
doing he does it. He's one of
those people who always helps
out wherever he's needed. He
always goes the extra mile.


We're fortunate to have him. It
was a very difficult decision to
make, we have many deserving
employees. I wish we had tick-
ets for everyone."


"My dad always said if it's
worth doing, it's worth doing
right the first time," Woodson
said. "All of us at Shands are

Speedweeks 2005 in grand
fashion at historic Daytona

infield. Besides enjoying the
thrilling side-by-side racing
on Daytona's legendary 3.56-

light." The Joy Club of First
Baptist Church in Live Oak
was visiting a church under
construction in the small town
of Lcc.
The city limit sign said,
"small but proud." The Joy
Club members pulled in front
of the new construction site
where they found the workers
in the fellowship hall taking a
break, but the workers were
soon back at work.
The members of the Joy
Club were taken on a tour of
the building and were a bit
surprised by the size of the
church in such a small town.
The front platform and choir
loft were huge, but the Joy
Club members were told that
the congregation hoped the


some of the women members
of Campers on Mission.
Among other things they were
making bibs for nursing
homes.
Campers on Mission, as the
Joy Club members learned, is
an organization of men and
women who travel in their
RV's from place to place help-
ing to build churches plus sev-
eral other things needed by lo-
cal churches. Their labor is
free. The only request is a
place to park their RV's with
water and electricity. Some
churches also provide sewer
drops. Some couples travel
great distances to work.
Don Ridgway is supervising
construction of the project at
Lee. -Ie and his wife, Nita, are


sion as well as several other
churches in surrounding coun-
ties.
Several local people have
been to a number of states
from Florida to Montana on
construction projects. Some
couples spend from a few
weeks to several months
working. Several are retired
people who are looking for
something useful and mean-
ingful to do with their spare
time.
:The people involved are
short on publicity and long on
hard work. Like the nomads of
old, when the job is finished,
they will roll up their awnings,
unplug the electricity and steal
quietly away to their homes or
the next project.

CHURCH


The Promise fulfilled in 2004


The greatest historical story
of all time - Christ physically
fulfilled his promise of salva-
tion by sacrificing His Son to
die on the cross to pay our sin
debt and save us from eternity
in the pits of Hell. For the sec-
ond year in a row, the church
body of First Baptist Church of
Live Oak brought this story to
life for our community to enjoy
by enveloping those in atten-
dance with a world-class the-
atrical production of "The
Promise."


It was another magnificent
performance, which transported
the audience back in time to
recreate beyond doubt the ex-
ceptional gift of life that Christ
has given all of us an opportuni-
ty to join Him for eternal life in
heaven. The outstanding cast
earned standing ovations for
their acting as they resourceful-
ly utilized the glorious staging,
period costumes, a dazzling
light show and concert sound to
present an uncompromised
stage production. The costumes


and set designs were inspired,
and the music was breathtak-
ingly uplifting. It was truly a
team effort from hundreds of
church members to present this
outstanding portrayal of the
birth, life, and death and most
importantly the resurrection of
our Lord Jesus Christ.
"We wanted to inspire people
with the Word of God through a
musical drama. Our goal was
for the members of the audience
to truly experience the life of Je-
sus," First Baptist Church Di-
P �....-me -


rector of Music Alan Lott said.
"People came from all over to
see the performance, from out-
lying areas and as far away as
Tallahassee and even Atlanta,
Georgia."
Preparations for the perfor-
mance began in August with
choir rehearsals and drama re-
hearsals started in September.
Every Tuesday night in October
members of the cast gathered to
practice. Beginning Dec. 5
through Dec. 13, the church
parking lot was full every night
with choir and cast members,
audience members, or both.
"We added an extra night to


the presentation this year be-
cause after the overwhelming
response from last years show,
we didn't know what to ex-
pect," Lott said. "Last year, we
had a packed house every night
and a waiting list of nearly 300
people. We didn't want to have
to turn people away this year."
Lott estimates the performance
touched at least 1,500 lives not
including those of our congre-
gation that tirelessly worked to
ensure the show went off with-
out a hitch. "We were very
pleased with that," Lott said.
Lott said the church family
hopes to be able to offer this gift


to the community every year.
"Our goal is to help people re-
member exactly what the true
reason for the Christmas season
actually is," Lott said. "Even in
the midst of all the busyness
during this time of year, an
event such as this that touches
people with the reality of the
God's gift to us is literally the
true meaning of Christmas.
Even if only one person chose
to accept Christ as their savior
as a result of this program, all of
the hard work and effort is ab-
solutely worth it," Lott said.
"That reality is, without Christ,
there simply is no Christmas!"

Mlan thinkers. both secular and religious
ha\e remarked upon the fact that the belief
in God or godsi and in some kind of \
afterlife. seems to be present in %irtuall -
e ery culture kno\\n to us. both past and
present. Secular thinkers. like Freud.
consider these religious ideas to be a kind
of universal illusion. But. religious
thinkers ha\e always been more inclined '
to see this as a kind of imprint of the
Creator upon the creature. the brushstrokes of JL
the diline artist, if not his signature. Indeed, it GOD
\would be a cruel cosmic joke theory if the
idea of eternmt\ \ere implanted in us but
signified nothing more than an illusion.
Fortunately . the cruel cosmic loke theory i\
has a serious logical fla\\. That is. if there is
a cosmic joke being pla ed on us. there 'i
must be someone pla ing the joke. and the ---
- existence ofa cosmic prankster effecti\el
negates the idea that God tor eternity is
illusory \We are made in God's image, and \ e
Ssee this both in the idea of eternity w within us.
Sand also in our acts of loving kindness.
He has made everything beautiful in its time: also He has put
eternilt into matn's mind. yet so that he cannot find out what God
has done from the beginning to the end.

In the Bible, Jesus asks His disciples, "Which of you
who has a friend will go to him at midnight and say to
him, 'Friend lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine
has arrived on a journey and I have nothing to set before
him'; and he will answer from within, 'Do not bother me;
the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed;
I cannot get up and give you anything'? Yet because of
his importunity he will rise and give him whatever he
needs" (Luke 11:5-8). This example that Jesus gives us is
a good reminder of how we should be persistent in our
prayers. And although I have heard it said that once we
pray for something, we can forget about our prayer
request because we have turned it over to God, this
attitude may not be appropriate in all cases. Because, like
the man requesting the three loaves, we should be
persistent with our prayers when we are faced with a
concerning situation that remains with us. Praying for
months or even years for various situations is sometimes
necessary. For example, because of their love, many
parents will pray a lifetime for their children's safety and
well-being. We should always be aware that we are God's
children and He is faithful to those who love Him and
seek His help in prayer.

But for thee, 0 Lord, do I wait; it is thou, 0 lord my God, who wilt answer.
R.S.V Psalm 38:15

that the consumer may not see
(like popcorn, tomato products,
spices, raspberries, blackber-
ries, strawberries, peppers,
mushrooms, cornmeal, tree nuts
and dry legumes). The list conm-
piled by the FDA includes about
105 foods.
RANDOM FOODS
When you look at the list, it
seems almost random. But ac-
cording to the FDA, these foods
are picked "whenever it is nec-
essary and feasible to do so,"
which basically translates to the
foods that come up with prob-
lems most frequently. Does this

The Diet

The unwelcome
By Charles Stuart Platkin
Have a weak stomach? Don't
read any further. OK, you've
been warned. Did you know
that you're eating insects, rat
hair, rat excrement and insect
fragments every day? And that
it's OK with the U.S. govern-
ment?
It's true. The Food and Drug
Administration sets "food de-
fect action levels," the maxi-
mum levels of natural or un-
avoidable defects in foods -
like how many insects or rat
hairs are permissible.
WHY ALLOW ANY
DEFECTS IN FOODS?
The action levels were creat-
ed because it's "economically
impractical to grow, harvest or
,process foods that are totally
free of safe, naturally occurring,
unavoidable defects," says Bar-
ry Swanson, Ph.D., professor of
food science and nutrition at
Washington State University in
Pullman.
In fact, the FDA action level
defect guidelines say: "The al-
ternative to establishing natural
defect levels in some foods
would be to insist on increased
utilization of chemical sub-
stances to control insects, ro-
dents and other natural contam-
inants. The alternative is not sat-
isfactory because of the very
real danger of exposing con-
sumers to potential hazards
from residues of these chemi-
cals, as opposed to the aestheti-
cally unpleasant but harmless
natural and unavoidable de-
fects." In other words, to have
no defects, you would have to
use more chemicals, and foods
would be less healthy.
EATING INSECTS
It's been estimated by an
Ohio University fact sheet that
we actually eat 1 to 2 pounds of
insects each year, unintentional-
ly.
"They're actually pretty
healthy," says Philip Nixon,
Ph.D., an entomologist at the
.Uiversity of Illinois. Insects
are, a regular part of a balanced
diet throughout most of the
world, with the exception of Eu-
rope and North America. They
have nutrients, are high in pro-
tein and low in fat. And, "If we
were more willing to accept cer-
tain defect levels such as insects
and insect parts, growers could'
reduce pesticide usage. Some of
the spraying that goes on is di-
rectly related to the aesthetics of
our food," adds Nixon.
ARE THESE 'DEFECTS'
DANGEROUS?
"Not at all," says Manfred
Kroger, Ph.D., a professor of
food science at Pennsylvania
State University. They're basi-
cally processed filth, meaning
they have been sterilized. "Let's
face it," he says, "much of our
food comes from nature, and
nature is not perfect." And that
means it has some level of con-
tamination (mold, insects, ro-
dent hairs or excrement). How-
ever, "This is more about how
the food looks and what people
think than about health," says
Stephen Pintauro, Ph.D., a pro-
fessor of food science at the
University of Vermont.
IS ORGANIC THE
ANSWER?
"Organic food is probably
worse," says Kroger. "Think
about it. When you're using raw
animal waste as fertilizer and
less pesticides, it's much more
difficult to keep organic foods
free of defects."
WHICH FOODS ARE
AFFECTED?
These defect guidelines cover
any foods exposed to biological
contamination, as well as foods
attractive to insects or microbes

food "additive"
mean that other foods don't
have defects? No. "Almost all
foods have defects. In fact, the
only food that might have virtu-
ally none is infant formula, be-
cause of the way it's
processed," according to Pin-
tauro.
ONLY 10 PERCENT
"Action levels" are the point
at which the FDA starts an in-
vestigation and decides what
action is warranted. But if these
are the upper limits allowed by
law, what can we expect to find
in our food? Well, that depends
- if you ask the FDA, it's
about 10 percent of the action
levels, but other experts argue it
could be as high as 40 percent.
THE FOOD DEFECT
ACTION LEVELS
Here is a small sampling of
foods from the guide. You can

BLocaLs ooredy Afican merican Deve meant Council

Locals honoredby African American Development Council


Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor

The annual African Amer-
ican Development Council
held its annual roast and
toast banquet Feb. 5 at Sh-
eryl's Buffet in Live Oak
where four local people were
honored.
Honored were Vinnie
King, Percy L. Owens, Cora
Owens and Pete Sneed.
Honorees were seated at
the head table in the hall dec-
orated elegantly for the
evening event.
Taking part in the pro-
gram were emcee and Coun-
ty Commissioner Douglas
Udell; praise and worship in
song by Minister Chekita
Lewis and her daughter,
Shai Williams; with scripture
reading by AADC Member
Bill Leithead, greetings by
AADC President Yvonne
Scott and Marlon Ivey mak-
ing the presentations of
plaques to the honorees.
Special guests for the
evening were NFL football
player Andre' Davis and UF
Gator football player Jarvis
Herring, both grandsons of
honoree Presley Owens.
After a delicious dinner,
various people spoke about
those being honored.
Speakers about Vinnie
King said she is precise in her
actions and always knows
the direction she wants to
take. King was said to be
well regarded in the commu-
nity and as a minister's wife,
always was in church with
her children, always loyal to
her church and always
friendly and caring to mem-
bers of the church. Many of
King's family members at-
tended this special event.
In -accepting her plaque,
King gave "all glory to God"
and said she "thanks God
that someone saw something
in me to honor."
Elaine Dolly said King, her
aunt, is such a wonderful
person with a sweet spirit, is
the best aunt and perhaps
best of all, is one of the best
cornbread and biscuit bakers
around!
Emcee Udell said he loves
to hear Percy Lee Owens Sr.
sing a song about wrestling
with the devil. He added that
Owens himself always says
that, "grandpa may be the
backbone, but grandma is
the heart beat," true, Udell
said, in the case of Owens
and his wife, Louvella.
Both Davis and Herring
spoke fondly of their grand-
father, honoring him for
helping to raise them in a
fashion that led them to
where they are today in the
world. "He used to instill in
us that a lot of people are
looking up to us and for us to
keep on (moving higher),"
said Herring. Davis spoke
highly of his grandfather,
saying he remembers as a
child growing up watching
Owens working at his pro-
fession of lawn care, some-
thing that instilled in Davis a
desire to do his best.
Both Davis and Herring
took time from the Super
Bowl weekend activities of
which they were a part to be
in Live Oak to help honor
Owens when they could
have been in Jacksonville, a
lesson to others that was not
missed by those present.
One speaker said Owens
was superintendent of Sun-
day School at this church,
New Bethel Methodist Epis-
copal Church, for many,
many years and is a man
who really takes pride in


everything he does.
Marlon Ivey said when he
and his sister were growing
up that Owens "made a sig-
nificant contribution to our
lives" when their mother
didn't have baby sitter be-
cause Owens' wife, Louvel-


la, and he would watch over
them. "No body messed
with us," Ivey joked of that
arrangement.
"I did all I've done because
I love everybody," Owens
told the audience. "In earlier
days whatever you said to a
child you stick to it."
Cora Owens, a retired
teacher, was also honored.
Owens' family members
spoke of her motto, "Just Do
It!" Her daughter noted it
did no good to say she didn't
want to go to school, she
knew she was going to not
only elementary, middle and
high school, but college as
well. Described as "a unique
Christian woman," she was
also described a woman de-
termined to move forward
by learning more and more
every day and followed the
lesson of "follow or get left
behind," something she in-
stilled in her children and
grandchildren. Cora Owens
was also described as a "fear-
less leader" who had no lim-
its and couldn't be contained
or would not allow "a lid to
be put on her."
Others described her as a
diverse, generous and loving
woman who "tells the funni-
est stories." Recalling her
days as a teacher, it was not-
ed she had been known to do
an excellent impression of
Diana Ross on some of the
special days at school where
teachers would entertain stu-
dents. It was also pointed out
that Owens was known for
her excellent basketball abili-
ty and singing ability.
Dorothy DePass gave a
beautiful speech on how


Cora Owens had lived her
life as an example to others..
Cora Owens thanked all
who came to honor her.
Pete Sneed was also hon-
ored. Emcee Doug Udell
said when he first came to
Live Oak a local man didn't
take a liking to him and
Udell said he knew he was
going to "have to whip him."
However, when that day
was apparent, Sneed, a large
man, drove up, Udell said he
told the other man he would
go over and get his "brother"
indicating Sneed was he
brother. Naturally, no fight


took place and the problem
was settled!
Sneed was born in High
Springs but eventually
moved to McAlpin where
he's lived all these years. As
a boy Sneed moved from
relative to relative and end-
ed up on the farm of an un-
cle, who taught him to farm.
A member of Bethlehem
AME Church, Sneed has al-
ways been a hard worker in
his church and a good
farmer, said a family mem-
ber. Although he didn't
have the opportunity to go
to college, he made sure all

which obtained master's de-
grees. It was noted that
Sneed spends many long
hours working at his church
and that he's been a school
bus driver for many, many
years.


Sneed said he was hon-
ored to receive the plaque
and thanked all for the hon-
or.
The Rev. Clifton Riley
gave several remarks before
giving he benediction to end
the event.

African Americans for their

ture and our history," said
Brenda Reid, Publix Manag-

ries of each of these notable
individuals with our cus-
tomers. American culture is
very rich in stories of food
and family recipes passed
down through the genera-
tions. We hope through


these stories that our cus-
tomers will be encouraged
to explore the importance of
food in their own family his-
tories."

sponse-s when addressing white peo-
ple.

BIRDIES AND BOGEYS
Michelle's Fanny
Michelle Wie's father recently an-
nounced that with the recommenda-
tion of her teacher, David Leadbetter,
Michelle will have Fanny Sunesson tot-
ing her bag at the Safeway Internation-
al tournament in Arizona in mid-
March and at the Kraft Nabisco Cham-
pionship at the Mission Hills Country
Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif., the fol-
lowing week.
Fanny one of the best in the busi-
ness, caddied for Nick Faldo for years
before moving on to Sergio Garcia for
a brief period, after which it was back
to Nick. She is reported to be the first
caddie to top the $1 million mark in ca-
reer earnings, making her the Cadillac
of all loopers.
Fanny is used to the pressure and
will be a stabilizing influence on the
young teenager. If a few putts drop,
they could make a little history at Mis-
sion Hills.
But that's not the only reason
Michelle and Fanny are a perfect fit;
Wie is a "professional" shopper and
Fanny has her own clothing line -
and on the LPGA Tour, these are the
ties that bind.

Quiz masters
Which name doesn't belong: Jack
Nicklaus, Bobby Jones, Walter Hagen,
Tiger Woods, John Ball, Ben Hogan,
Gary Player, Arnold Palmer, Tom Wat-
son?
If you said John Ball, I wouldn't
blame you, but you would be wrong.
Actually, this is a trick question. All
the names belong because the list con-
tains the names of the players with the
most major championship wins (men's
pro and amateur combined), ranging
from the most - Jack Nicklaus with 20
- to the fewest - Palmer and Watson
with eight. John Ball won nine majors
(one British Open and eight British
Amateurs) over a 22-year period from
1888 to 1912.

With his 41st win on the PGA Tour
this winter at the Buick Invitational,
Tiger Woods is halfway to the all-
time tournament wins record of 82
held by Sam Snead.

The number of shots David Duval
missed the cut by at the Bob Hope
Chrysler Classic at the end of Janu-
ary The main culprit was his driver.
He hit less than 50 percent of the
fairways in regulation and only two
in the third round (on his way to an
85 at Tamarisk). To add to his woeful
stats, Duval had an 82 on the Palmer
course, the course where he shot 59
to win the Hope in 1999 - that's a 23-
shot difference.


IT'S GOOD FOR YOUR GAME


Your chest should be your point of concentration because it is the "master mover," meaning
that when you move your chest, your arms and shoulders move. Your chest must move from
its original position (left) straight back about 6 inches until it is over your back instep (right).


Push-back dr

he first move you make with
your golf swing is the most im-
portant. Make a mistake here
and you'll have to compensate else-
where during your swing to make it
right.
Several mistakes are possible on the
first move. You can reverse pivot - an
error where you transfer weight to
your front foot instead of your back
foot. You can roll your arms too much
- turn your lead forearm over the
trail forearm.
You can experience arm "runoff"
where you move your arms first with
little or no shoulder movement. Or
you can lift the club head too soon, us-
ing your arms and hands exclusively
with no body coil.
The "push-back drill" cures all the
above mistakes. That's why I like it:
Tee up a ball and place a two-by-
four on the target line directly behind
it, leaving enough room for the club

THE GOLF DOCTOR

Handshake etiquette
Renowned golf instructor Bob Toski says: "A firm hand-
shake doesn't reveal a thing about character. All it tells me is
you're probably going to hold the club too tight." Good point;
Toski said this to emphasize the importance of
keeping your grip pressure soft enough to allow
for the proper setting and releasing of the hands
during the golf swing.
But according to a recent study at the Universi-
ty of Alabama, published in the Journal of Per-
sonality and Social Psychology, a firm handshake
is indeed related to some aspects of a person's
personality The study finds that those with firm ,
handshakes are more extroverted, open to experi- - W
ence and less neurotic and shy than those with
less firm or limp handshakes.
In the junior golf program at my club (Lyman Orchards, in
Middlefield, Conn.), a firm handshake is part of golf etiquette
education. We emphasize to the youngsters that when they
join a group of golfers on the first tee, the first impression is
important.
We use the Post etiquette recommendations (first Emily, and


do in the second photo.
In order to push the board back that
far you will have to move your chest.
Your chest should be your point of
concentration because it is the "master
mover," meaning that when you move
your chest, your arms and shoulders
move. Your chest must move from its
original position in photo 1 straight
back about 6 inches until it is over
your back instep as mine is in photo 2.
When done properly, you should be
able to notice these key points: Your
lead shoulder has moved back 6 inches
(the same amount as the center of
your chest), while moving out toward
the camera about 2 inches and drop-
ping 6 inches. Also, your trail arm is
higher than your lead arm.
Use a board and a mirror to practice
this move (also called the "takeaway")
until you own it. It is a fundamental
building block of a sound, consistent
swing.


now her grandson Peter):
* Look the other person in the eye.
* Repeat the person's name and say you're
pleased to meet him or her.
* Give him a firm handshake, but don't "bone
crush" him.
Unfortunately some of the people you meet in
golf may not have gone through our junior pro-
gram, so beware the "bone crushers" (especially if
you have arthritis.in your hands). Hall-of-fame
golfer Gary Player has a special handshake to
avoid injury: He slides his hand deep into the palm
and locks in on the thumb area. This prevents the
squeezing of his hand at the middle joints of his fingers.
Or you could send the Posts packing and politely refuse to
shake hands at all, a la Donald Trump or author James Joyce.
When a fan once asked if she "could kiss the hand that wrote
'Ulysses,'" Joyce declined, saying that his hand had done
much more than just write "Ulysses."


TEEING OFF


Sleep learning

can help with

golf problems

Studies show that babies can learn
while they sleep. Researchers from
Finland, using a technique that
records mental activity associated
with the brain's learning center, have
found that babies can distinguish
sounds they have been taught while
asleep.
The research did not cover how
adults learn in their sleep, but it is
true that in adults, part of the brain
stays alert while sleeping as it per-
forms its main function - problem-
solving. '
Sleep learning goes back to the ear-
liest Babylonian cuneiform writing.
The custom of "sleeping on a prob-
lem" comes from the ancient Greeks
("enkoimesis": sleeping in the sanctu-
ary). I'm a firm believer in the power
of sleep learning and I often recom-
mend it to my students when they
have a particularly difficult golf prob-
lem to solve.
A case in point: I experienced this
for the first time as young pro, teach-
ing a Vermont dentist who had prob-
lems with his hip action. I spent some
time kneeling by his left hip (he's a
right-handed player) as he hit golf
balls, tugging on his left belt loops as
he completed his backswing. The idea
was to give him the feel of starting his
downswing by turning his hips to the
left before he had uncoiled his shoul-
ders.
He understood what we were work-
ing on intellectually, but was having a
hard time putting it into practice until
one day he showed up and excitedly
proclaimed: "I've got it. It came to me
last night in a dream."
He went on to tell me that for days
he had gone to bed thinking about
turning his hips, but nothing hap-
pened. One night he dreamt he was
playing basketball and the feeling he
was looking for was the same one he
h:ld h-ld in hi.lih iclorl. v.hen ibe f~_Ed--
a defender to the right and then took
him off the dribble to the left. His
brain had figured it out while he was
sleeping, and his handicap, which had
been stuck at four, dropped quickly to
one and stayed there.
If there is something in your golf
swing you need to figure out, write it
down and read it before bedtime. In
two weeks, if it's solvable, you'll have
your answer.

ASK THE PRO
Q: Over the last few years, I've
played with some really long hitters.
No matter what I do, I cannot keep up
with them and I've come to grips
with it. My problem is that no matter
how hard I swing, my ball comes out
of the gates smoking, but dies and
drops fast. Whereas most people's
golf balls continue to bounce forward
when they land, mine generally stop
where they land. Can I correct this?
- Kyle D., from the Web
A: Without getting too technical,
I can tell you this: No matter how fast
you swing the club, you will hit it far-
ther if you can launch it higher with
less backspin. To accomplish this, try
the following:
* Move the ball up in your stance,
directly opposite your front big toe.
* Tee the ball much higher - use
one of those new long tees (4 inches).
* Set up with your back shoulder
slightly lower and place more weight
on your back foot.
* Take care to keep your head be*
hind the ball through impact.
* Flatten your swing plane by
swinging the club more around you.
* Use a more flexible shaft with a
lower kick point.
* Use a deep-faced, big-headed dri-
ver.
Hitting the ball a long way involves
attention to a number of factors, the
most important of which are your
launch angle, your spin rate and the
solidness of contact. When you have
these under control, you can go after
the ball as hard as you want.

SEC East meets Wes


,' 1, n what will be a historic day for the Southeastern
Conrtereince. the University of Kentucky could add to its
legjc:, - ih a victory over Mississippi State on Saturday.
The Bulldogs-Wildcats game is one of six interdivision
matchups that day. It will mark the first time since the SEC
expanded to 12 teams and went to the divisional format during the
1991-92 season that the six West Division teams will face off
against their East Division counterparts on the same day.
Kentucky finds itself unbeaten in conference play through the
first 10 games and essentially holds a four-game lead over Florida.
With a victory over the Bulldogs on Saturday, Kentucky could
claim its 11th divisional championship and move a little closer to a
record 43rd outright conference championship.
Mississippi State has been a disappointment this season. A team
that once appeared to be invincible on the road, the Bulldogs are
1-4 in conference road games this season.
Rick Stansbury's squad will most likely earn an at-large bid
into the NCAA tournament, but they have to prove to themselves
that they are able to play with top-20 irogramis. A victory atRupp
Arena would give the Bulldogs a boost and an opportunity to stay
in contention for the West Division championship.
The league is billing Saturday as "SEC East-West Challenge."
This season, the series between the two divisions is deadlocked at
11-11. The East has dominated the West during the decade,
winning 110 of 180 meetings from 2000-2004.
� Records: Mississippi State 18-6 (6-4 SEC West); Kentucky
19-2 (10-0 SEC East). Coaches: Mississippi State's Rick
Stansbury (144-70); Kentucky's Tubby Smith (334-116). , Tip-
off: 9 p.m. ET Saturday. Bi TV: ESPN.
Keys for Mississippi State: Lawrence Roberts has to
establish himself early on. In last Saturday's win over Vanderbilt,
Roberts scored all 15 of his points in the second half.... The
reserves have to contribute. The Bulldogs got only two points
from their bench in the Vanderbilt game.
Keys for Kentucky: Come out ready to play. Smith made
several substitutions early in last Saturday's win over Georgia in
an effort to get more energy.... Be active defensively. The
Wildcats had 13 steals against Georgia.


The Rest of the Matchups

Florida at LSU
Records: Florida 15-6 (7-3' SEC East); LSU 13-8 (6-4 SEC
West). Coaches: Florida's Billy Donovan (219-110); LSU's
John Brady (222-100). Tip-off: 2 p.m. CT Saturday. \ TV:
Jefferson Pilot.
Keys for Florida: Better perimeter defense. Tennessee hit 50
percent of its shots in last Saturday's loss to the Gators ... Shut
down the Tigers' two big men, Glen Davis and Brandon Bass.
Keys for LSU: Better shot selection. The Tigers were 5-of-19

PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENTTO ISSUE AIR
CONSTRUCTION PERMIT MODIFICATION

Florida Department of Environmental
Protection
Suwannee American Cement LLC
Suwannee American Cement Plant - Branford
Suwannee County
DEP File No.: 1210465-011-AC (PSD-FL-
259F)

The Florida Department of Environmental
Protection (Department) gives notice of its
intent to issue an Air Construction Permit
Modification to Suwannee American Cement
LLC (SAC) to increase production, inject fly
ash into the calciner, and install additional
nitrogen oxides controls at the cement plant
located on U.S. Highway 27, in Suwannee
County. A new Best Available Control
Technology (BACT) determination was not
required. The permitted's name and address
are: Suwannee American Cement LLC (SAC),
Post Office Box 410, Branford, Florida 32008.

The plant started up in February 2003, is
presently operating at or near full capacity
under the provisions of its active construction
permit, and has demonstrated compliance
with the current BACT limitations. The
company submitted an application for a Title V
Operation Permit that is being processed by
the Department.

Raw materials include sources of calcium,
silica, aluminum, and iron such as limestone,
sand, bauxite, clay, fly ash, iron ore, and mill
scale. Allowable fuels are natural gas for
startup, coal, tires, and petroleum coke. Tires
and petroleum coke have not yet been burned
at the facility. At the present time, the plant
production capacity is limited to 105 tons per
hour (TPH) of clinker.

SAC requests an increase in its hourly clinker
production limit from 105 to 120 TPH and in
annual production from 839,500 tons per year
(TPY) to 965,425 TPY. SAC also proposes to
inject fly ash directly into the calciner instead
of introducing all of it with other raw materials
at the preheater. This will make it possible to
increase the amount of total raw materials
entering the process, thus producing more
clinker. The fuel use limit will be increased
from 364 to 458 million BTU per hour.

Pollution control equipment consists of a fabric
filter system (baghouse) for particulate
emissions from the kiln; an electrostatic
precipitator on the clinker cooler; absorption of
sulfur compounds and metals into the product;
raw materials selection and combustion
controls for volatile organic compounds (VOC)
and carbon monoxide (CO); indirect firing,
multiple burn points and a staged combustion
calciner for nitrogen oxides (NOX); and
baghouses for particulate emissions from
other process emission units. SAC will add an
SNCR system to inject ammonia solutions into
the calciner exhaust gases to provide
additional NOX control flexibility.

The Department previously issued permits to
SAC to conduct clinker production, fly ash
injection and SNCR tests. The tests were
conducted during the last quarter of 2004.
The results of the test programs were
submitted to the Department in support of the
present request.

The Department is already required by the



Classifieds


previous construction permit to set final
emission limits for sulfur dioxide (S02) and
NOX. The final limit proposed for NOX of 2.4
Ib/ton of clinker (30-day basis) is one of the
lowest in the country. The 24-hour NOX limit
of 2.9 Ib/ton of clinker will be maintained. The
3-hour S02 limit of 0.20 Ib/ton of clinker is
also one of the lowest limits issued to-date in
the country. It reflects the use of raw materials
that are inherently low in sulfur, very efficient
scrubbing of combustion gases by finely
divided lime in the calciner, and injection, as
needed, of hydrated lime into the preheater.

The company proposes to reduce the CO
emission limit from 3.6 to 3.34 Ib/ton clinker;
however the annual emission limit will
increase by 99 tons. There may be small
increases in PM/PM10 emissions due to
increased production. Actual test data
indicate that emissions are much less than
presently allowed and SAC has proposed
decreases in the PM/PM10 limits from
0.13/0.11 to 0.11/0.09 Ib/ton of feed to the
preheater. The PM/PM10 emission limits from
the clinker cooler will also be reduced from
0.07/0.06 to 0.06/0.05 Ib/ton of feed. The
proposed production increase will not result in
significant net emissions increases and a new
evaluation under the rules for the Prevention
of Significant Deterioration (PSD) is not
required.

SAC has continuous emission monitoring
systems (CEMS) for NOX, S02, visible
emissions, control equipment temperature,
and total hydrocarbons with real-time
transmission to the Department. Key data are
available at:
"http://www.suwanneecement.com".

Following are the net annual emission limit
increases and decreases from the kiln and
cooler compared with the original permit.
Pollutant Permitted Emissions (TPY)

The Department will issue the Final Permit
Modification with the attached conditions
unless a response received in accordance
with the following procedures results in a
different decision or significant change of
terms or conditions. The Department will
accept written comments concerning the
proposed permit action for a period of fourteen
(14) days from the date of publication of this
Public Notice of Intent to Issue Air
Construction Permit Modification. Written
comments should be provided to the
Department's Bureau of Air Regulation at
2600 Blair Stone Road, Mail Station #5505,
Tallahassee, FL 32399-2400. Any written
comments filed shall be made available for
public inspection. If written comments
received result in a significant change in the
proposed agency action, the Department shall
revise the proposed permit and require, if
applicable, another Public Notice.

The Department will issue the Permit
Modification with the attached conditions
unless a timely petition for an administrative
hearing is filed pursuant to Sections 120.569
and 120.57, F.S., before the deadline for filing
a petition: The procedures for petitioning for a
hearing are set forth below. Mediation is not
available in this proceeding.

A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the proposed permitting decision
may.esn rr a auini-raiveproe-uii-


may petition for an administrative proceeding
(hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
W o ! F.S. The petition must contain the information

Sthe Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth

r*, , r , .


Department for notice of agency action must
be filed within fourteen (14) days of receipt of
that notice or the date of publication of the
public notice whichever occurs first. A
petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to
the applicant at the address indicated above
at the time of filing. The failure of any person
to file a petition within the appropriate time
period shall constitute a waiver of that
person's right to request an administrative
determination (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, FS., or to intervene in
this proceeding and participate as a party to it.
Any subsequent intervention will be only at the
approval of the presiding officer upon the filing
of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, F.A.C.

A petition that disputes the material facts on
which the Department's action is based must
contain the following information: (a) The
name and address of each agency affected
and each agency's file or identification
number, if known; (b) The name, address, and
telephone number of the petitioner, the name,
address, and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if any, which shall
be the address for service purposes during
the course of the proceeding; and an
explanation of how the petitioner's substantial
interests will be affected by the agency
determination; (c) A statement of how and
when petitioner received notice of the agency
action or proposed action; (d) A statement of
all disputed issues of material fact. If there are
none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A
concise statement of the ultimate facts
alleged, including the specific facts the
petitioner contends warrant reversal or
modification of the agency's proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes
the petitioner contends require reversal or
modification of the agency's proposed action;
and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the
petitioner, stating precisely the action
petitioner wishes the agency to take with
respect to the agency's proposed action.

A petition that does not dispute the material
facts upon which the Department's action is
based shall state that no such facts are in
dispute and otherwise shall contain the same
information as set forth above, as required by
Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Because the
administrative hearing process is designed to
formulate final agency action, the filing of a
petition means that the Department's final
action may be different from the position taken
by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial
interests will be affected by any such final
decision of the Department on the application
have the right to petition to become a party to
the proceeding, in accordance with the
requirements set forth above. ,
