NOTHING LEFT BUT A MANGLED MESS WHERE TWO DIED: There was not much left of a 2002 Mercury-car that met head-on
with a county dump truck early Thursday on US 129 north of O'Brien where a father and his 8-year-old son died. Volunteer
fire fighters put out the resulting fire but it took hours to investigate the crash, the deaths and then get the road cleared for
traffic. - Photo: Janet Schrader

Susan K. Lamb

It's a new day between
city and county government
and that was never more ev-

voted earlier this month to
approve a joint agreement
that will allow the city and
county to work together to
improve economic progress.
- The city had already ap-
proved the agreement.
"The bounds of city and
county overlap so that some
things the city can't do with-
out the county, especially in
the north section of the
city," said Live Oak City
Council President Don
Boyette. Boyette said the

Uncle arrested after

having 14-year-old

niece hide cocaine


On March, 14 at about 5
p.m., Live Oak Police Offi-
cer Derek, Slaughter ob-
served a vehicle leaving an
area that is known for illegal
drug activity. The officer
had observed activity that
led him to believe a transac-
tion had taken place, accord-
ing to Live Oak Police Chief
Nolan McLeod. Officer
Slaughter began an investi-
gation and made contact
with the driver, Brian E.
Cascaddan, 39, of Mayo, ac-
cording to McLeod.
Passengers in the vehicle
included Mathew Cascad-
dan, 18, and a 14-year-old
juvenile. The officer had ob-
served the juvenile attempt-
ing to hide something in her
pants, McLeod said. Investi-
gation revealed that Brian
Cascaddan had just pur-


chased a baggie containing
powder cocaine and had git."'
en it to his niece to hide for
him. It was also discovered
that Brian and Mathew \\ ere
in possession of cannabis.
according to McLeod. 3,
Brian Cascaddan was ar;,i
rested and charged with pos-
session of over 20 grams of,,
cannabis, purchase of cot
caine, possession of cocaine,,
and knowingly driving with
a suspended driver's license,.
An additional charge of"
child abuse may be forth-
coming, McLeod said.
Mathew Cascaddan was',
arrested and charged with'
possession of over 20 grams,.
of cannabis and possession,
of drug paraphernalia.,
(Rolling papers).
The juvenile was released,
to her father.


Suspect


Continued From Page 1A

Derek Slaughter initiated a traf-
fic stop on a vehicle that was
being driven by Ray Anthony
Duncan, 19, of 612 N. Ohio
Avenue. McLeod said Slaugh-
ter stopped the vehicle in the
yard of 217 North Walker Av-
enue, which is at the comer of
Second Street and Walker Av-
enue.
McLeod said Duncan exited
the vehicle and immediately
began yelling at the officers
and dialing a cell phone while
walking toward the residence
located at that site. As the offi-
cer was attempting to deal with
Duncan, Duncan called for the
crowd of people who were at
the residence. When Officer
Alfredo Moreno arrived to as-
sist, he attempted to handcuff
Duncan. The officer was suc-
cessful in getting one handcuff
secured on the suspect before
Duncan pulled away.
Duncan was told to place his
hands behind his back or the
TASER device would be used.
Duncan continued to resist and
Officer Slaughter used his
TASER 'device on Duncan.
Duncan still refused to place
his hands behind his back and
the TASER device was de-
ployed a second time by Offi-


cer Slaughter, after which te
officers were able to complete
the handcuffing procedure.
However, McLeod said the in-
cident still wasn't over and Of-
ficer Slaughter was forced to
deploy his TASER device a
third time when Duncan broke
free and headed toward the
crowd that had gathered in a
semi circle around the officers
and suspect.
According to reports filed by
officers, some people in the
crowd became upset over the
officers trying to make the ar-
rest and were yelling at the of-
ficers and appeared hostile.
"During this incident, Dun-
can was calling for the crowd
to help him," McLeod said.
"About 30 to 40 people were in
the crowd by the time Duncan
was finally arrested and se-
cured. The crowd gathered
around and most were hostile
toward the officers," McLeod
stated.
Duncan was charged with
possession of less than 20
grams of cannabis, resisting an
officer, inciting a riot and dri-
ving with a suspended driver's
license.

.,.well as in other situations.
1. The request to move the
book came more than a year
ago from a young Live Oak
,mother, Jennifer Jernigan,
who went to the Suwannee
iRiver Regional Library in
Live Oak and discovered the
h bok when her five-year-old
son retrieved it from the book
shelf and brought it to her.
Jernigan never asked for cen-
sorship, only to have the book
:'moved to a location where
young children could not ac-
cess it by themselves. That
simple request turned into a
year-long incident that ended
When all five county commis-
sioners in Suwannee County
voted to have the book placed
in the adult section. All five
*said it was the biggest issue
j they've handled in recently
memory and outweighed road
problem requests by a huge
Inargin in the last few weeks.
During the hearing, Jerni-
gan said "This is not an issue
of censorship. The book
should be moved." She added
that moving the book would
x! lt be any more censorship
ihan having movies rated. "If


TV at 11 p.m. can't show it on
TV, why put it in the library?"
she asked. Jernigan also ques-
tioned the question that was
put to the committee appoint-
ed by the board to decide
where to place the book. Al-
though the commission ap-
pointed the committee to de-
cided on placement of the
book, the committee was pre-
sented with the question of
whether or not Hales had act-
ed according to policy in plac-
ing the book initially, to which
the committee answered yes.
Some committee members ex-
pressed concern later to the
media and to the board about
this.
After the decision was
made, Jernigan was over-
whelmed with congratulations
from friends and supporters.

Jernigan said she never
meant for her concern over the
book's placement to mean she
was attacking the library. "I'd
like to also make it clear that
this was not, in any way,
meant to be an attack on the li-
brary or its' director and staff,"
she said. "They did their job
based on the current library
policies, and I disagreed be-
cause of something I believed
in. I also felt sure there would
be overwhelming community,
support in this instance and,
thankfully, I was right." She
said she pursued the matter for

the two struck head-on.

Commissioner Doug Udell
said if any of his grandchildren
brought the book into his
home he would take the appro-
priate action to make it clear
that was not acceptable read-
ing material. Udell said the
drawings "defy my imagina-
tion, and I'm almost 60 years

During the hearing, one
mother, Karen Carter, said "if
my children were to bring this

Another woman, Susan
Perez, questioned who owns
the library if associations and
groups in other areas are
telling locals where to shelve
the books. She suggested
Suwannee County must decide
what Suwannee County needs.
She said the American Library
Association, which approves
of the book, thinks "everything
is censorship when complaints
are filed" as Jernigan had
done.
Hales said the book had
been checked out 27 times to
families, and he had no com-
plaints until Jernigan's. Hales
said he never said the issue
was censorship. He added that
he went by standards to shelve,
the book and defended those
decisions. He said the library

doesn't shelve books by age as
stated in the. Democrat. Hales
said he's turned down many
books to go into the library, in-
cluding Madonna's sex book
and a book by Howard Stern.
"I personally didn't pick this
book but the buck stops here,
just like the buck stops with
you," he told the commission.
Hales also said the Gainesville
libraries had not moved the
book to a section other than ju-
venile non-fiction.
Udell said the commission


needed to solve the issue and
get on with business and stop
breaking up the entire county
over the issue. With that, he
made the motion to move the
book to the adult section, sec-
onded by Hatch, and unani-
mously agreed upon by the en-
tire board as the audience that
filled the room applauded.

OPINION


BY JACK FARIS


Moonlighting in

self defense
Moonlighting - working two jobs to make ends meet -
is more than a time-honored American tradition; it's a
necessity for a substantial share of the nation's work-
force. According to the most recent employment-situa-
tion summary released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics,
7.2 million Americans hold more than one job.
The federal government doesn't collect statistics on
how many of the nation's 25 million small-businesg
owners are forced to juggle the equivalent of two jobs
most of the time. They don't do it to earn extra income,
but to protect what they've already gained against a nev-
er-ending list of government regulations, tax schemes
and ill-conceived, but politically popular programs that
gnaw incessantly at their cash registers and bank ac-
counts.
And while these late-night-oil-burning entrepreneurs
are certainly not eager to add anything else to their time-
crunched schedules, President Bush's State of the Union
message was a clear call for them to put in some extra
hours. Only this notice from the nation's chief executive
was a plea for help to roll back some of-those anti-free-
enterprise initiatives that have gobbled up far too much
of the American business sector's precious time and fi-
nancial resources.
Fitting a third job into their already long days won't be
easy, but by becoming grassroots political activists at
every opportunity between now and Election Day 2006,
small-business owners can have a major, favorable im-
pact on their struggling enterprises.
The president has made it very clear that he under-
stands the important role of entrepreneurs in the nation's
economy. Announcing his Fiscal Year 2006 budget, he
specifically pledged to boost small-business owners and
their employees, calling on Congress to make health care
more affordable and accessible to Americans through the
enactment of Small-Business Health Plans (formerly
called AHPs).
These plans are a key priority for the National Federa-
tion of Independent Business (NFIB). Passage of legisla-
tion such as the Small Business Health Fairness Act
would make health insurance more affordable for small-
business owners by allowing them to band together
across state lines through bona-fide trade associations to
buy insurance at lower premium costs for themselves
and their employees. Main Street supporters U.S. Reps.
John Boehner of Ohio, Sam Johnson of Texas, Nydia Ve-
lasquez of New York and Albert Wynn of Maryland, re-
cently introduced the Small Business Health Fairness
Act in the U.S. House. U.S. Sens. Olympia Snowe of
Maine, .Jim Talent of Missouri and Christopher "Kit"
Bond of Missouri have introduced companion legislation
in the Senate.
The cost of health insurance has been ranked the No. 1
problem for small-business owners since 1986, accord-
ing to the NFIB Research Foundation's "Small Business
Problems and Priorities." which reports on the most
pressing issues facing small business. While very impor-
tant, it is just one of the issues that need attention.
The president also promised to focus Congress's atten-
tion on the pressing need to make permanent the tax cuts
that were passed in 2001 and 2003, to repeal the "Death
Tax," and to reverse the upward trend in frivolous law-
suits.
By moonlighting as letter writers, e-mail messengers
and visitors to their elected officials' offices to help them
promote these crucial small-business agenda items,
America's over-worked, excessively-taxed and red-tape
tangled entrepreneurs could, in the long-term, reduce the
moonlighting they're now required to do to hold the gov-
ernment at bay.
Jack Faris is president of NFIB (the National Feder-
ation of Independent Business), the nation's largest
small-business advocacy group. A non-profit, non-
partisan organization founded in 1943, NFIB repre-
sents the consensus views of its 600,000 members in
Washington, D.C., and all 50 state capitals. More in-
formation is available on-line at www.NFIB.com.

March came in like a lion this year.
The weather we experienced the oth-
er night got a little scary. We had quit
a bit of damage throughout the city.


Over on my side of town, I think we
even had some tornado action. We
experienced some damage around
my house that did not even happen I
during the hurricanes. That's just
what I needed, a few more things to BYSONN
add to my honey-do list. We sure did
not need the rain during fair week.
The weather men and the Fair Association must be on the outs.
If my memory serves me correctly, we have had rain during
this week in previous years. Anyway, we are thankful for the
needed rain and the beautiful days we have had between show-
ers.
I hope every one had a nice St. Patrick's Day. Evidently you
don't have to be Irish to celebrate this day. Green clothes, food
and drink could be seen everywhere. I'm really not sure what
St. Patrick's Day celebrates. I think it has something to do with
St. Patrick driving the snakes out of Ireland. If he did, he needs
a special day. I wonder if there are snakes there now? Maybe
Janet or Yvette could investigate these questions and let us
know the answers in one of their articles in the Suwannee De-
mocrat. Some green foods may be okay but I would not eat any
green meat or mayonnaise!
Last week the city and county governments passed a joint
resolution of cooperation along with the Suwannee County
Economic Alliance agreeing to work together to improve the
economic situation in Suwannee County. This was a giant step
in city and county relations and in bringing greater economic
prosperity to our county. As economic opportunities arise, oth-
er agreements will be necessary. The city looks forward to
working more closely with our brothers in government for the
benefit of you, the residents of our city and county community.
I understand that Suwannee County is getting closer to being
designated a HUB Zone (Historically Underutilized Business)
Zone. Only part of the county will have this distinction due to
some of those crazy requirements and criteria that we have to
work with all the time. This designation gives businesses that
are in the zone preferential treatment when it comes to bidding
on federal contracts. This can lure businesses that do business
with the feds to our community. It's not a done deal, nor do I
want to jinx it, but it looks good at this time. I have been told
that the announcement could come as soon as next week.
I keep mentioning the sewer plant and the funding that we


In the last lecture, we discussed
S,, three of four kinds of behavior
that can be called economic be-
' :. ' havior: production, consumption
and exchange. We'll turn our at-
tention to the fourth - specializa-
tion.
Specialization is said to occur
when people produce more of a
WALTER WILLIAMS commodity than they consume or
plan to consume. Specialization
�2005 Creators Syndicate can occur on an individual, re-
gional or national basis. Here are
examples of each. Detroit assembly-line workers produce
more crankshafts than they consume or plan to consume.
Californian citrus growers produce more navel oranges than
they consume or plan to consume. Brazilian coffee growers
produce more coffee than they consume or plan to consume.
There are two requirements for specialization. There must
be an unequal endowment of resources and trade opportuni-
ties. The unequal endowment part means that an individual
has the skills or a region or nation has the kind of resource
endowment of land, labor, capital and entrepreneurial talent
whereby it can produce certain things more cheaply than
another individual, region or nation.
For example, while it's possible to grow wheat and corn
in Japan, it would be an expensive proposition. Why? Be-
cause crops like wheat and corn use a lot of land, and Japan
is relatively land poor, and its land is expensive. By con-
trast, the United States is land rich; hence, grain production
is relatively cheap. Therefore, it makes sense for the Unit-
ed States to take advantage of what it can do more cheaply
- specialize in grain production - and for Japan to spe-
cialize in what it might produce more cheaply - say cam-
era lenses.
In order for specialization to occur, there must be trade
opportunities. It wouldn't make sense for U.S. farmers to
produce more grain than they consume or plan to consume
if they couldn't trade it. Neither would it make sense for
Japanese producers to produce more camera lenses than
they consume or plan to consume. That's why trade oppor-
tunities are necessary in order for people to take advantage
of specialization.
Imagine that the Japanese government imposed trade re-


have been pursuing. We encountered
several road blocks in acquiring help
for this project. Our consulting engi-
neers, Eutaw Utilities, have put to-

strictions on U.S. grain imports. Japanese farmers could
charge monopoly prices and enjoy higher income, and
Japanese consumers would pay higher prices. Would you
deem it an intelligent response for the U.S. government to
retaliate against Japan's trade restrictions by imposing
trade restrictions on Japanese camera lenses, thus allowing
American lens producers to charge monopoly prices and
American consumers to suffer higher prices? Put another
way, is it a smart response for the U.S. government to harm
American consumers because Japan harmed its consumers?
Specialization and trade make people dependent upon
one another for their everyday wants. How many of us
make our own eyeglasses, cars, houses, clothing and food?
We get all those goods by specializing in what we do well,
getting paid and trading with others for what they do well.
Through specialization and trade - we might call it "out-
sourcing" - we enjoy goods as if we actually produced
them. By the way, those who call for independence indi-,
vidually, regionally or nationally are asking us to be poor-
er. It makes no difference whether they're calling for ener-
gy independence, clothing independence or coffee inde-
pendence.
Let's look at just a few misleading statements about in-
ternational trade. The United States, trades with Japan.
Does anyone really think that it is the members of the U.S.
Congress who trade with their counterparts in the Japanese
Diet? It's really individual Americans trading with individ-
ual Japanese through intermediaries.
What about fair trade? If you purchase a Japanese-made
camera lens on mutually agreeable terms, you'd probably
conclude that it was a fair trade, or else you would have
kept your money. An American camera-lens producer might
call it unfair because he couldn't sell you his lens at a high-
er price. Economic theory can't answer a subjective ques-
tion like whether it would be fairer if you had to pay a high-
er price; it can say that a higher price would result your hav-
ing fewer dollars for other things.
The next article will focus on one of the most important
economic concepts - costs.

gether an application for a Rural De-
velopment Disaster Grant for $7.5
million. Tammy Ray, president ofEu-
taw, tells me that just about every
member of her firm spent two i% eeks
NOBLES putting this application together. It
was thicker than a New York City,
phone book. Tammy feels very good
about our chances of getting this monetary help. Money is there
and few have applied because it is such an undertaking to make
application. If the city of Live Oak is successful in getting ihese
monies, they will go a long way in solving our problem in pay-
ing for the plant and save the residents of Live Oak millions out
of our own pockets. Keep your fingers crossed.
Nothing was reported about the city's participation in the
mock disaster exercise held last week so I'll do it myself. I un-
derstand the Live Oak Police and Fire Department, with the as-
sistance of other city departments, received high marks in their
performance during this mock disaster. I know you might get
tired of me always bragging on our city departments and per-
sonnel but I just can't help it. We have good employees, no, not
perfect people, working for you in our community. When you
get a chance, give them a big THANK YOU for their efforts.

In Lovin9 Memory of Our Daddy

Cfittis Freming


God saw they were their happiest and
Someone woufdnot let that be.
So He put his armnns around them anduwhispered
"Come with Me".
With tear fiffed eyes we watched them
Suffer and fade away. Although we
loved them deeply, We could not
make them stay.
A golden heart stopped eating
Hard working hands put to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.

Daddy, it has been year since you left
But you will be in our hearts forever.
Love, your
Cfhidren and Grandchicdren,
And The Rest Of Your Family.

Spring Planting info
and needed chores
March-
This is the time to fertil-
ize your landscape trees,
lawn and shrubs. Prune
and fertilize spring
blooming plants, as soon
as they are finished
blooming. Once new
growth begins, prune
dead or damaged branch-
es of plants hurt by cold.
Always prune back to a
bud, another branch, or a
main trunk.
A large variety of flow-
ers can be planted now,
especially some favorites
such as pentas and salvia.
Another special plant
for March is the Chinese
Ground Orchid. This or-
chid produces two inch
pinkish purple or elite
blooms. Plants will grow
1,to 1.5 feet tall and have
"lug' narrow leaves.
Flower stems appear in
late spring to early sum-
mer and last about six
weeks. They are attrac-
tive container plants and
make long lasting flow-
ers.
Orchid Care
Chinese grotind orchids
are easy bulbs to grow in
pots in the ground in rich
well-drained organic soil
and filtered sun or partial
shade. Plant them a foot
apart with tops of the
bulb one inch below the
soil surface. Water regu-
larly and taper off when
leaves start to yellow in
the fall. Stop watering
when leaves dieback.
Clumps may be divided


GARDEN CLUB HOLDS CALADIUM COUNT: Garden Club mem-
ber Mena Tull along with other members gathered together Sat-
urday, March 12 to count and sort caladium bulbs for delivery.
The caladium supplier suffered through numerous hurricanes
last year and the Garden Club is thankful for their strong effort to
still be able to meet the demand for their fundraiser.

ADDICTED TO TANNING?
Those who find it difficult to keep
out of tanning salons may have a
dangerous habit. According to new
research, "ultraviolet light
addiction" involves habitual
patronage of tanning parlors for the
purpose of boosting mood. Experts
speculate* that endorphins ("feel-
good" chemicals released in the
brain during exercise) may be
released when the body is exposed
to ultraviolet (UV) light. Previous
laboratory studies have shown
endorphin release with UV light
exposure. This finding is confirmed
with human subjects' preference for
tanning lights that emit UV rays
over placebo lights. The problem is
the UV radiation induces mutations,
some of which lead to skin cancer.
Exposure to radiation from a
tanning booth may be even more
risky than exposure to natural
sunlight.
Over time, the effects of too much
UV exposure can lead to eye
damage, changes in your immune
system, cataracts, wrinkles and
premature aging of the skin, and
skin cancer. A safe alternative to
tanning salons is to use a bronzing
spray or lotion. A dermatologist is
an excellent resource for further
recommendations. To schedule an
appointment, contact
GAINESVILLE DERMATOLOGY
& SKIN SURGERY. We are
conveniently located at 114 N.W.
76th Drive. New patients are gladly
accepted. Please call (352) 332-
4442 to schedule an appointment.

Do your heart some good in March


March is Florida Heart
Healthy Month, an opportunity
for Floridians to learn more
'about heart health, heart attack,
stroke prevention, and the im-
portance of regular cardiovas-
cular screenings.
Florida Department of
Health statistics show that more
than 48,000 Floridians died of
heart disease in 2003; almost
one in three Floridians has di-
agnosed high cholesterol and
one in four lives with hyperten-
sion fi meaning Floridians need
to take better care of their
hearts.
Heart Healthy Month in-
cludes free blood pressure and
cholesterol screenings at the
Florida Capitol and in other
cities throughout Florida. As-
traZeneca, a leading pharma-
ceutical company, is sponsoring
the Tallahassee screenings in,
conjunction with the American
Heart Association. In other lo-
cations around the state, As-
traZeneca is partnering with
Humana, one of the nations
largest publicly traded health-


benefits companies. As-
traZeneca through its partner-
ship with the PGA Tour also is
distributing heart-health infor-
mation at select tournaments in
Florida.
According to Dr. Terry
Smith, a chief medical officer
for Humana, South Florida,
Heart Healthy Month is intend-
ed to save lives.
"This month-long initiative is
a great opportunity for your
community to do a heart-health
inventory and check for possi-
ble cardiovascular risk fac-
tors,"said Smith. healthyy
lifestyles, screenings, and treat-
ing conditions like high blood
pressure and high cholesterol
are critical to preventing and
managing heart disease and
stroke."
American Heart Association
statistics show that cardiovas-
cular disease is the leading
killer of American adults; it is
estimated that nearly 2,600
Americans die of cardiovascu-
lar disease every day; an aver-
age of one death every 34 sec-


onds.
Diet, exercise, risk factor
identification, health screenings

Poole Realty, Inc.
hosted its annual
awards banquet Febru-

Copeland Center in
Dowling Park honoring
Realtors for their hard
work during the 2004
year and discovering
their employees often
have untapped talents
to share.
Ronnie Poole present-
ed 10 awards to his em-
ployees during the
course of the evening,
with the Number One
Top Producing Agent
award going to Kellie
Shirah.
"Kellie earned this top
honor with a combina-

her dynamic personali-

is a great asset to Poole
Realty." But Shirah did
not earn the award
alone, noted Poole Real-

olyn Spilatore. "Poole
Realty is truly a family
organization with over
20 agents working, to
help and support each
other. Kellie is a big
part of that family, and
we are all proud to
award her that honor
this year."
And Spilatore's com-
ments must be true, be-
cause Poole Realty, Inc.
is one of the most moti-
vated and professional
Real Estate companies
in Suwannee and sur-
rounding counties.
Ronnie Poole believes it
is the family atmos-
phere that keeps a
healthy, competitive
edge within the compa-
ny, and that helps drive
the individuals to
greater success. Six real-
tors were named to the
President's Club with
sales of $3 million plus.
Those include: Anita


Kent Handy, Glenda
McCall, Kellie Shirah,
Enola Golightly, Irvin
Dees and Vicki Prickitt.
Five realtors joined the
Multi-Million Dollar
Club with sales of over
$2 million. Those in-
clude: Jan Fessler, Rhon-
da Dykes, Carolyn Spi-
latore, Jay Wetzel and
Brett Deutsch. And two
realtors joined the Mil-
lion Dollar Club - Rhon-
da Miller and Patti
Wolfe.
And of course, the
night wouldn't have
been complete without
the families of'the real-
tors being present to
support and honor them
for their hard work.
"The families are the
backbone behind these
successful agents,"
Poole said. "Vacations

comments of his fellow

TASER DEMONSTRATION: Live Oak Police Department Captain Buddy Williams gave a demonstration about the TASER device now part of the issued equipment for LOPD to, the Live Oak Rotary Club
March 7. Williams told the group that the TASER device is under scrutiny by various law enforcement organizations, but he finds the TASER device an excellent source of officer safety as well as "bad
guy" safety. Each TASER device costs $899 and was purchased through a grant. Each projectile used costs $21 and is capable of having information stored in it downloaded for record-keeping and re-
view purposes. Williams said the TASER devices have only been used approximately 17 times.since LOPD received them. 1) Williams displays the old-style TASER device. 2) Williams, right, places the
metal probes on LOPD Officer Kevin Hurst, second from right who volunteered for demonstration purposes as Live Oak Rotary Club President Jeff Lee, left and Live Oak Rotary Club.President-elect Russ
Stapleton look on. 3) TASER device is deployed, which causes immediate loss of Hurst's neuromuscular control. Hurst required the help of Lee and Stapleton to keep from being knocked down from the
jolt.4) President Jeff tells Hurst he's glad lie's OK. - Photos: Staff

Lucky chickens


In Suwannee County, due to
the presence of so many chick-
en farms, there is a phenome-
non called "the lucky chicken."
Every time the broilers get
harvested, there are 10 or 11
"lucky chickens." These lucky
guys are the ones left in the
barn that they just can't catch.
Often they end up processed,
but sometimes they find new
homes and get to live out their
chicken lives clucking, digging
in the gravel and doing all the
other things happy chickens do.
I heard about some lucky
chickens from a friend who
told me, in the strictest confi-
dence mind you, that her neigh-
bor had just given her a small
flock of chickens. I said where
did they come from and she
whispered, "A chicken house."
I said, "Did you steal them?"
She said no, the farmer's
wife had delivered them in the
dark of the night and told her,
"Take the chickens, but I was
never here."
I bet there are folks all over
Suwannee County with flocks
of lucky chickens.
I found me a lucky chicken
one day. I was driving down the
road and there this fluff of
white feathers sat in the middle
of the tarmac. It had a stunned
look on it's face and when I got
out of the car, (remember, I
brake for squirrels and most
small animals) and walked up
to the chicken it didn't move. I
thought it was hurt but it was
only stunned.
Apparently, it had come fly-
ing off a chicken truck. I took
my lucky chicken home and in-
stalled it in a dog cage with wa-
ter and food. It wasn't long be-
fore it was up and eating. I was
ecstatic. I had me a lucky
chicken.
I decided to let it out and see
how it felt about touching grass
and dirt for the first time in its
life. It got out, slowly circled,
unsure of what to do. Then its
chicken instincts took over and
it began chirping and scratch-
ing. I felt great and promptly


named him (it was a rooster)
Lucky.

Cub Scouts Pack 408 celebrates 75th birthday


at the annual Blue and Gold Banquet


Thomas Robley
Burnett
Webelos den leader
The Cub Scouts became
an official part of the Boy
Scouts of America (BSA)
program in 1930, and
everyone presently in-
volved is celebrating its
75th birthday this year.
BSA has made special


patches available for those
scouts, parents, leaders
and packs which meet cer-
tain requirements. The
complete history of the
Cub Scout program can be
found on the Internet at
www.geocities.com/-pac
k215 /hist-cshistory.html.
At the unit's most recent
Pack meeting, everyone
gathered for a potluck
dinner. The Dixie Grill
-- - r; -w-


prepared 80 pounds of
good, Southern chicken
as well as provided the
delicious beans and
coleslaw. Seventy-fifth an-
niversary desserts were
made by the scouts and
auctioned. Numerous
desserts were extremely
well designed and deco-
rated; almost looking pro-
fessionally made!
Awards and ranks


earned during the past
month were presented to
the scouts. For those
earning a rank, they were
given a pin to put on each
parent's shirt or lapel.
Several dens presented
skits during the meeting.
The quality of the skits
have improved greatly
since the beginning of the
school-year program!
The next big event is 10


a. m., Saturday, March 19,
at the Lake City Mall.
Those scouts that were the
top-three racers in the
pack-level Pinewood Der-
by race will be racing the
winners in the other packs
within the Suwannee Riv-
er District. The winners
from this race will com-
pete at the Council-level
race, April 23, located at
the New Northeast Flori-


da Equestrian Center near
Cecil Field in Jacksonville.
The Cub Scout activities
involve both the scout and
his family. For additional
information on the pro-
gram for boys in the first
grade through 18-years-old,
visit the pack's web site at:
www.pack408.net, or con-
tact the Cubmaster John
Good, 386-362-3953, e-mail,

Faculty Commission presents


Professor of the Year award.


By Will Benedicks, Talla-
hassee Community College,
Faculty Commission Chair
Congratulations go to Paula
Cifuentes of Lake City Com-
munity College (LCCC), re-
cipient of the 2004 Florida
Association of Community
College's (FACC) Faculty
Commission Professor of the
Year Award for Teaching Ex-
cellence.
Kickin' it up a notch was
the order of the day at the
FACC Faculty Commission
Exemplary Practice Presenta-
tions for the Professor of the
Year. Three finalists chosen at
the Spring Faculty Commis-
sion meeting at Tallahassee
Community College vied for
the-honor. The winner was se-
lected by the five regional
judges: Region V- Dorma
Gottlieb (MDC), Region IV -
Bev Grundset (SPC), Region
III - Gary Sligh (LSCC), Re-
gion II - Larry Gunter
(LCCC), Region I - Randey
Burnette (TCC).
Special thanks go to Nancy
Myers and Laura Wilson from
McGraw-Hill. For the second


year in a row McGraw-Hill
has sponsored the Professor
of the Year Award for Teach-
ing Excellence and provided
the award monies. Professor
Cifuentes was presented with
a McGraw-Hill $1,000 check
along with her award.
In one of the closest votes
in recent history, Professor
Cifuentes, mathematics pro-
fessor at Lake City Commu-
nity College, edged out the
competition. Her "Show Me
the Money" presentation us-
ing mathematics to determine
the best investments to make
for the highest dollar yield
wowed both the audience and
the judges.
Professors Enid Mazzone
of North Florida Community
College (NFCC) and Melanie
Wagner of Lake Sumter Com-
munity College (LSCC) were
named Distinguished Profes-
sors and received $250
checks. Professor Mazzone's
presentation was entitled,
"True Gambler" and defined
the characteristics of the en-
trepreneur along with the
benefits and drawbacks of


owning a business. Professor
Wagner titled her presentation
"The Missing Key" and fo-
cused on one of the tech-
niques she uses to dispel the
myth that readers have to
hold "one special key" to be
able to effectively analyze lit-
erature.
FACC members in the
packed session room were re-
sponsive to and appreciative
of the fine work and level of
excellence demonstrated by
the three finalists. The collec-
tive opinion was that there
were only winners in the
room - both on the podium
and in the audience.
The Faculty Commission
encourages all interested fac-
ulty to apply for the 2005
Professor of the Year Award
for Teaching Excellence. The
forms are available on the
FACC website, under the
Faculty Commission. The
deadline date is Jan. 31. Each

Butterbean Wooten takes first at Bulldog Invitational


Janet Schrader-Seccafico
Democrat Reporter
-The competition was tough
at this year's Bulldog Invita-
tional Weightlifting Tourna-
ment. The winning team was
a Class 3-A school Buchholz
and the runner up was last
year's 1-A state champions
Blountstown. The Suwannee
lifters did well, placing fourth
behind Palatka.
. "I like to make the compe-


tition tough," Coach Dan
Marsee said. "We don't have
too much competition in our
own area."
Three time World's
Strongest Man, Bill Kaz-
maier, opened the meet with
an motivational talk and
strength demonstrations. Kaz-
maier wowed the crowd by
rolling up a frying pan like a
sausage and bending 5/8"
steel into interesting shapes.
He also broke a 3/8" steel bolt
- just snapped it in half.


But the real focus of this
huge event was the lifting.
There were 10 schools in at-
tendance; Blountstown, Ft.
White, Columbia, Buchholz,
Bradenton Bayshore, Palatka,
Hamilton, Union, Trinity
Catholic and Baker. Suwan-
nee lifters put in a lot of great
individual performances.
In the 129 weightclass, Joe
Kelly placed fourth lifting

It was another one-sided
game for the Suwannee soft-
ball Lady Dogs. The Lady
Dogs hammered the hapless
Ft. White team, mercy-ruling
them in the fifth with the
score 14-0.
Katie Smith struck out sev-
en on her way to a fifth
straight victory on the mound.
While Suwannee's defense
fielded a perfect game com-
mitting no errors.
The bats were hot for the


Lady Dogs. The team
snagged 11 hits off the Ft.
White pitching staff. Al Cash
remains Suwannee's hottest
man at the plate hitting a dou-
ble and a triple while going 3
for 3. Cash scored three runs
and had one stolen base.
Lea Schenck hit a triple as
did Jenna Jordan. Kate
Townsend logged in a double.
Suwannee got off to a good
start by scoring four runs in
the first inning. They fol-
lowed that with two more in

IT'S GOOD FOR YOUR GAME


Chipping is


forgiving

By T.J. TOMASI
Universal Press Syndicate
W hen you barely miss a green on your ap-
proach shot, you have landed in the
chipping zone - an area within five
yards of the green. The object of chipping is to
keep the ball in the air just long enough to clear
the rough and fringe around the green with a
low shot that lands about a yard onto the green
and then rolls the rest of the way to the hole like
a putt. �
The shot is relatively simple - almost too sim-
ple, in the sense that you can reach some degree
of proficiency even with bad technique. This is
unlike the full swing where bad technique usual-
ly leads to such poor results that you realize very
quickly something is wrong.
The bad technique I see most often in chipping
is too much backswing, an error that causes a de-
celerating "scooping" action at impact where the
club head flips past the hands. An out-of-control
backswing violates the basic tenant of good, con-
sistent chipping, i.e., that the ball is struck with
a descending, slightly accelerating'blow. All good
chippers hit the ball this way and the good news
is that the correct way is just as easy to learn as
the wrong way.
In the photos here I am working with a stu-
dent on the root cause of her chipping problem
- the out-of-control backswing. In the first pho-
to, I hold a club so the grip end of it will restrict
her backswing. In the second photo you can see
that it has done just that. The motion should
mimic the word: "chip" - short and staccato in
its pronunciation as well as its execution.
Shortening this player's backswing to only a
third of its original length will force her to
change her downswing from a decelerating flip
to an accelerating chip. Note also that the ball is
positioned off her right ankle, where it needs to
be to ensure a descending blow.
If you have this out-of-control problem (and
many do), have a friend restrict your backswing
as I am doing here until you get the feel.
One final thought: The first priority is to get
the feel of the proper technique without regard
to distance, so don't chip to a specific hole. Once
you have the proper technique you can begin to
gauge the flight/roll ratios of the various clubs
to a target.
Obviously, a 6-iron rolls much farther than a 9,
but the only way to be a consistent chipper is to
practice until your "feel system" is programmed
to choose the correct club. Of course, if your
technique is flawed, these calculations are mean-
ingless, so work on your technique first (sans tar-
get) and your touch second (add target).


Shortening this player's backswing
will force her to change her downswing
to an accelerating chip.

This weekend will be
another clash of golf's
titans as many of the
world's best compete
at Bay Hill"'
By GLENN SHEELEY
Cox News Service
Orlando, Fla.
W hat's happened to 'Arnie's
Army" noW that 75-year-
old Arnold Palmer virtu-
ally has retired from competition?
It used to be fans lining fairways
to watch Palmer in his prime and
long after it. Now the Army is mea-
sured in marquee PGA Tour play-
ers assembled to play at his Bay
Hill Invitational.
This week's Bay Hill has nine of
the top 12 players on the world
rankings plus a heavyweight three-
some - No. 1 Tiger Woods, No. 3
Ernie Els and No. 5 Retief Goosen
- playing together Thursday and
Friday.
Not bad for continuing the Flori-
da Swing excitement that moves to
The Players Championship next
week and then into Georgia for the
BellSouth Classic and the Masters.
"You always expect a good field
here and next week," said Sergio
Garcia, ranked eighth. "The better
the players, the more exciting the
tournament is, not only for the peo-
ple, but for us, too."
So far, Florida has been quite the
state of thrills after a couple of
soggy, less than sensational weeks
on the West Coast.
First, Woods outlasted Phil
Mickelson at Doral in an event that
held near-major excitement, push-'
ing Woods back to No. 1 in the
rankings. Then Ireland's Padraig
Harrington, who has moved to No.
6 but isn't playing Bay Hill, won a
playoff at the Honda Classic Sun-
day when No. 2 Vijay Singh missed
a 30-inch putt.


Padraig Harrington beat Vijay
Singh in a playoff at last week's
Honda Classic. Players ranked
in the top 10 have already won
eight events this year.


Woods, as a four-time Bay Hill
champion; and Els, who has won on
consecutive weeks on the European
Tour; are probably the co-favorites
this week. With rain that has soft-
ened Bay Hill's sometimes brick-
hard greens and added to the al-
ready lush rough, it promises to be
yet another rewarding week for
long hitters who can keep it fairly
straight.
"It's a great field again," Woods
said. "It will be just another good
test. You're going to have to make a
lot of birdies."
With a win, either No. 2 Singh or
Els could take over the No. 1 spot if
Woods finishes outside the top two.
"But it's not about the No. 1
ranking," Woods said Tuesday.
"That's not what drives me. It's
about winning golf tournaments.
The rankings, the player of the
year awards, the money list - all of


2005 WINNERS
This year's PGA results with
winner's current world ranking:
* Jan. 6-9: Mercedes Champi-
onships (Stuart Appleby, No.
12)
* Jan: 13-16: Sony Open (Vi-
jay Singh, No. 2)
* Jan. 20-23: Buick Invitational
(Tiger Woods, No. 1)
*.Jan. 26-30: Bob Hope
Chrysler Classic (Justin
Leonard, No. 22)
* Feb. 3-6: FBR Open.(Phil
Mickelson, No. 4)
* Feb. 10-13: AT&T Pebble
Beach National Pro-Am (Phil.
Mickelson, No. 4)
* Feb. 17-20: Nissan Open
(Adam Scott, No.:9)
*,Feb. 23-27: WGC-Accenture
Match Play Championship
(David Toms, No. 7)
* Feb. 24-27: Chrysler Classic
of Tucson (Geoff Ogilvy, No.
53)
* March 3-6: Ford Champi-
onship at Doral (Tiger Woods,
No. 1)
* March 10-13: Honda Classic
(Padraig Harrington, No. 6)


these things will be taken care of by
winning tournaments.... I guess it
(No. 1) might be interesting for the
fans, but I'm not a fan. I'm a com-
petitor. My whole idea is to win a
tournament."
So far, the PGA Tour season has'
been all about quality, with players
in the top 12 of the rankings - ex-
cept for Geoff Ogilvy (53) at Tucson
- winning all of the official PGA
Tour events. Woods and Mickelson,
who likely will share the Masters fa-
vorite role with Els next month,
each have two PGA Tour wins.
"We had years where it was all
about first-time winners, and then
years where it was all about the old
guys winning," said Stuart Appleby,
the two-time Mercedes champion.
"Predominantly if you want to look
at averages over the years, the best
players are going to win most of the
events. That's why they're the best."

Suwannee baseball loses to Florida High 10-15


Janet Schrader-Seccafico
Democrat Reporter

"We lost 10-15 in what I
think was the ugliest game
I've been a part of in eight
years," coach Ronnie Gray
said about the recent
Suwannee versus Florida
High game in Tallahassee.
Last year's game at Florida
High was marred by bad of-
ficiating and rude Florida
High fans. According to
Gray, because of last year's
trouble, they brought in a
three-man officiating crew.
The home plate umpire was
one of Florida State's home
baseball officials.


"We swung the bats good
enough to win," Gray said.
The Dogs scored 10 runs.
But Gray said they should
have scored 20.
Gray said the pitching did
not go well but commended
Michael Keene for coming
in as relief. Gray said
Keene was the only pitcher
that showed any real effec-
tiveness. Even so, Keene
gave up three hits and three
runs and walked one.
Gray also said the defense
did not play well either,
failing to make an out on
four different sacrifice
bunts.
"We are I feel getting bet-
ter at competing, but we


still have room to improve
in that area," Gray said.
Ryan Stovall started on
the mound and walked sev-
en and gave up seven hits.
Stovall was relieved by
Mark Radford who walked
four, gave up three hits and
allowed five runs. Michael
Keene walked one, gave up
three hits and three runs.
Gray said you can't beat
the district champion team
walking 12 hitters.
"We fought to overcome
those walks offensively as
we out-hit Florida High and
scored 10 runs, but in the
end all those walks would
just provide the other team
with too much offense,"


Gray said.
Offensively, Ross Aretino
continued to swing a hot bat
going 2-5, with two runs, a
triple and one RBI. Billy
Moran went 3-3 with three
runs scored, a double and
an RBI. Rheed Baldwin
went 2-4 with a run scored.
On the day Suwannee col-
lected 13 hits and 10 runs.
Look for more Bulldog
baseball at home against
Bishop Kenny on Wednes-
day, March 23 at 5 p.m. Go
Dogs!

survivors and their families the
opportunity to see what "Dad
flew during the war!"
Senior groups frequently
visit, remembering Life maga-
zine and Movietone newsreels
showing these ' aircraft in ac-
tion. Some few may have built
planes or otherwise participat-
ed in the war effort.
Young people with little ex-
posure to this time in their his-
tory books are excited to see
these "old planes" bristling
with machine guns and hearing
a veteran telling a story or two.
Some want one more ride on
what they remember to be reli-
able machines that brought
their crews home even after
sustaining heavy battle dam-
age.
One old pilot took his wife
of over sixty years on a flight
so that she might finally under-
stand what he had been
through. They told me later
that this had been one of the
most significant events that
they had ever shared!
The "Wings of Freedom"
tour will be at the Tallahassee
Regional Airport at 10 a.m.,
Monday March 21 through 1
p.m. on Wednesday March 23.
Walkthrough tours are $8 for
adults and $4 for children un-
der twelve. Group discounts
are available by reservation
only.
The Collings Foundation is a
supporter of the Library of
Congress Veterans History
Project (VHP). This project is
conducting interviews with
veterans, and others with war-
time experiences. Qualifying
veterans, civil defense and de-
fense workers who register for
a VHP interview will be given
free admission with advance
registration.
Group reservations and VHP
interview registration must be
made with Marty Steiner, Her-
itage Resources Group at
229.985.7503. Two "Wings of

have been established. They
are 850.558.3051 or

Flight experience rides must
be reserved directly with the

Abomi


"Abomination" is a word
seldom heard in our modem
world of relativism. (Is any-
thing considered abominable in
a world where everything is
considered relative?) The Bible
enumerates several acts/per-
sons that are considered to be
"abominations unto the Lord."
Proverbs 6:16-19, for example,
gives a list of seven abomina-
tions to the Lord.
The Bible records abomina-
tions from offering children as
sacrifices to false gods
(Deuteronomy 18:10) to using

What?


false weights and measures
(Deuteronomy 25:13-16). It
tells us that sex for hire is an
"abomination unto the Lord thy
God" (Deuteronomy 23:18).
God's Word condemns the
practice of men that would
dress to look like women and
vice versa, homosexuality and
adultery (Leviticus 18:20, 22,
23). Everything doesn't "Go"
with God! The Bible does
teach a RIGHT and a WRONG
and it is up to your church to
set forth the difference: to
make a difference in the com-


munity.

One of the prime requirements for an\ successful business are
satisfied customers. Those in the business %world
are keenly aware that a satisfied customer will '.
most likely return to them in the future, and that -
they \\ill recommend their products and
services to others. To be a satisfied satisfied
customer. we need to be treated fairly and
honestly, and in a civilized manner: \\e do not
like being taken advantage of, cheated or
ridiculed in any \\a\. Likewise, on a personal . /
level, \\e should also strim e to ha\e satisfied /
customers. Everyone \\e come in contact with is
some\\what of a customer and we should be selling
our friendship. good\ ill and cheerfulness. The
Bible tells us to treat others as we want them to
treat us, and when dealing \with others this Golden
Rule" is necessary for us to have and keep enjo\ able
relationships. Dissension in one's family, or in the
w workplace, or with anyone w\e deal w ith, is contrary to the
Sway our Lord \ants us to live our lives. And although it is not
always easy to reflect God's goodwill to others, when we are
cordial to others, we receive enjoyment and we are blessed b\
extending God's love.

-j' Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this
is the Law and the Prophets.

The Diet Detective

Food ambiance


While out to dinner with
friends last weekend, I had a
strange feeling that I was being
seduced into overeating -
which was partially true. Our
surroundings affect the amount
we eat and how much we enjoy
it, but I never thought lighting,
music, color, menus or the serv-
er's charm played such an im-
portant role. In fact, "Your envi-
ronment affects how much you
enjoy eating even more than
taste," says Herbert Meiselman,
Ph.D., senior research scientist
and food expert for the Army.
Being aware of your surround-
ings, both at home and in a
restaurant, just might save you a
few calories.
LOCATION, LOCATION,
LOCATION
Traditional restaurant settings
relax you and increase your en-
joyment of meals. As a result,
you stay longer and end up eat-
ing more. Brian Wansink, Ph.D.,
of the Food and Brand Lab at the
'University of Illinois, demon-
strated this when he created a
dining room within a fast-food
restaurant. The room. that was
created had curtains, tablecloths,
soft music, indirect light and
table service. People randomly
invited to eat in the new dining
room stayed for about 43 min-
utes, over 50 percent longer than
the typical 27 minutes for the
regular fast-food diner. And
while they ended up eating
about 20 percent less of their
main meal, a whopping 60 per-
cent ordered dessert when asked
- negating any calories saved
by eating less of their main
course.
WATCH WHAT YOU READ
Menus are designed to tempt
us, taunt us and get 'us to buy
more. According to Wansink,
reading the menu doubles the
likelihood that you'll order
dessert - so think twice about
your reply to the ubiquitous
question, "Would you like to see
a dessert menu?" If you do feel
like having dessert,..give. your-
self a few minutes for the 'main
course to settle; you might end
up skipping it or at the very least
ordering something lower in
calories. Also be wary of extras
on the menu, like fatty appetiz-.
ers and fancy, high-calorie
drinks.
DON'T GET SOLD
Servers are trained to use col-
orful, enticing language to de-
scribe dishes. Their tips are
based on a percentage of food
sales, plus they often get bonus-
es if they sell the most non-en-
tree items: appetizers,, drinks
("liquid calories") or desserts.
For example, instead ofjust say-
ing, "Hey, would you like some-
thing to drink?" the server might
ask, "We have a superb chardon-
nay that goes beautifully with
your halibut - may I get you a
glass?"
The tendency for us to get
"sold" on consuming more than
normal is especially high when.
it comes to dessert. Perhaps the
conversation is lively and you
want to continue to enjoy the
"good company," or maybe you:
don't want to make your dessert-
ordering guest uncomfortable,
or you get sucked in by a friend
or family member pushing you
to "share." Just say no. Wansink
suggests putting in a "stop br-
der" \\ ith the server - tell him
or her you don't want dessert
and he or she shouldn't even
bother with the menu or dessert
cart.
Recent physiological evi-.
dence suggests that seeing a
tempting food can enhance
hunger by increasing the release
of dopamine, a neurotransmitter
associated with pleasure and re-
ward, Wansink adds.
In other words, seeing the
dessert makes you want it. Just
look at this quote from National
Restaurant Association's "How


To Teach Servers How to Sell"
training guide (www.restau-
rant.org/business/howto/sell.cf
m): "Don't just tell customers
about your food and beverages:
Show them. For example, bring
a dessert tray to the table so cus-
tomers can see the decadent
choices. It's a lot harder to refuse
'Chocolate-Raspberry Truffle
Cake' once you've seen it up
close. In addition, when bring-


ing desserts out to customers,
servers can stop along the way at
a couple of their other tables to
point out the items."
Take control of your meal in-
stead of letting it control you.
LISTEN UP
If you listen to fast music, you
end up eating faster. However,
when you listen to slow music,
you decrease your chewing in-
tensity, and you enjoy your food
more. "Your nervous system
slows down. You're more re-
laxed and simply eat slower. Yet,
you can end up eating more be-
cause you sit at the table longer,"
says Nanette Stroebele, Ph.D., a
researcher at the University of
Colorado's Center for Human
Nutrition. "But even if you sit
longer, eating slower still has an
advantage because it gives your
brain a chance to recognize that
your body has actually con-
sumed food. Otherwise you
might keep eating even though
you're not hungry," adds Stroe-
bele. Pay attention to the music
at restaurants, and remember
you might be sitting for longer
than you normally would.
MAKE IT COLORFUL
"Colors seem to have an ef-
fect on not only mood but also
biological processes - increas-
ing blood pressure or producing
heat, hunger or thirst," says
Stroebele.
Brightly colored rooms create
angst or tension and are used to
encourage quick dining, while
muted colors are calming. "The
choice of color depends on
whether the restaurant is aiming
to increase consumption by in-
creasing turnover or by encour-
aging greater consumption by
each patron," says Lisa Klein
Pearo, Ph.D., a professor at the
Comell University School of
Hotel Administration in Ithaca,
N.Y.
THE NOSE KNOWS
Ah, the aroma of good food!
Smell enhances our tasting ex-
perience. In fact, studies in nurs-
ing homes found that adding
'"eat-sinellinR' foods to a menu
increased consumption. "Sim-
ply seeing or smelling a favor-
able food can increase reported
hunger and stimulate salivation,
which can be correlated with
greater consumption," says
Wansink. Aromatic food can
jump-start your taste-buds. This
might translate to you eating too
much regardless of how hungry
you are.
GO LIGHT
Research shows that bright
light can cause you to eat faster
and is typically used in fast-food
settings, where you can con-
sume large amounts of high
calorie foods quickly. We also
tend to eat more, but for differ-
ent reasons, in the more roman-
tic, dimmer light. It seems that
the low light decreases our inhi-
bition for eating as well as re-
ducing our ability to pay atten-
tion to what we're eating, says
Stroebele. How many times
have you gone to the movies and
felt more comfortable munching
popcorn because no one was
looking? Make sure to maintain
focus and awareness of what
you're eating when the lights go
dim, reminds Stroebele.
HEATUP
"People consume more dur-
ingprolonged cold temperatures
than during hot temperatures be-
cause of the body's need to reg-
ulate its core temperature. In
prolonged cold temperatures,
more energy is needed to warm
and maintain the body; there-
fore, more food is eaten. In pro-
longed hot temperatures, the
body must be cooled and main-
tained; therefore, more liquids
must be consumed," says
Wansink. Try raising the tem-
perature of the room to help you
eat less. You'll probably want to
drink more fluids, but be careful


- don't drink more liquid calo-
ries, warns Wansink. Stick to
calorie-free or very low-calorie
beverages such as diet sodas,
water and unsweetened iced tea.

SEC captures 5 bids


t's been nearly five years since the Southeastern Conference had a
representative in the Final Four, and the last team to make the trip
to college basketball's center stage is the league's best hope to
return this year.
The University of Florida leads a pack of five SEC teams into the
nation's best sporting event, in which anything can happen.

Florida Gators


. . . . . . . . . . . . 4.. .O
. . . . . . . . . . . . 4.5 0 Seed: No. 4, Syracuse Regional. Record: 23-7 (12-4 SEC
. . . . . . . . . . . . 4.4 East). FCoach: Billy Donovan (227-111). First-round
. . . . . . . . . . . . 4.3 opponent: Ohio (21-10,11-7 MAC); Nashville, Tenn.; Friday,
. . . . . . . . . . . . 4.2 11:25 p.m. CT (CBS). 3Winner faces: Villanova or New Mexico.
. . . . .. . . . . . . 3.3 Outlook: The Gators didn't get much respect from the national
pollsters throughout the season, but they are definitely the
S ' .. .. conference's hottest team at the most crucial point of the season. ,. ,
CORING 'lorida he.d. inieo the tournarcrit rindng a six-game winning

n, Alabama. . . . . 17.8 the 1999-2000 season rest on the Big Three - Anthony Roberson,

Lrkansas . . . . . . 16.2. quarterfinals. However, he was unable to find his shot in the final two
3OUNDING games of the SEC tourney, going a combined 8-of-26. Walsh, the
s, Miss. State . . . 10.9 most valuable player of the SEC tournament, averages more than 14
s, Miss. State . . . 10.9 points per game, and is the second-leading 3-point shooter in the
SU . . . . . . . . 9.0 league. Lee, the lone senior on the team, has been a monster on the
S8.7 boards, including a 17-rebound performance against Kentucky in the

. . .... 865 Outlook: Looking to avoid the same fate that befell them last
.. 846 season, when they lost in the second round, Smith and his staff will
see . . . .828 have to find a way to re-energize the Wildcats.
. . . . . .813 Fatigue played a major factor in Kentucky's loss to Florida in the
. . . . . .809 SEC championship game, as they were 0-of-11 from behind the arc in
. . . . . .789 the second half. Another area of concern for the Wildcats is
rebounding, as they have lost the battle of the boards in 10 of their
last 12 games.
. . . . . . 5.0 While Kentucky can play 13 guys, it doesn't use its depth to push
. . . . 4.8 the tempo and seems more content to battle in the halfcourt. This is
......4. not the same type of Kentucky team that Eastern Kentucky head

. . . . . . 43 coach Travis Ford played on and served as an assistant coach on
......4.0 during the Rick Pitino era.
Assuming the Wildcats get past the first round of the tournament,
they can't afford to look ahead.


Alabama Crimson Tide
3Seed: No. 5, Chicago Regional. Record: 24-7 (12-4 SEC
West). 0 Coach: Mark Gottfried (211-106). 0 First-round
opponent: Wisconsin-Milwaukee (24-5; 14-2 Horizon); Cleveland;


3rolina .


Thursday, 12:25 p.m. ET (CBS). Winner faces: Boston College
or Pennsylvania.
Outlook: Unlike last season, when it went from eighth seed to
the Elite Eight, Alabama won't be able to sneak up on teams in this
year's Big Dance.
Each member of the Crimson Tide's starting five earned some
form of all-conference recognition. Freshman Ronald Steele, a two-
time Mr. Basketball in Alabama, has been an effective floor general
this season. Leading scorers Kennedy Winston and Earnest Shelton
rank second and sixth, respectively, on the league scoring list.
Jermareo Davidson and Chuck Davis combine to give the team an
average of 14.5 rebounds per game.
Unfortunately, Alabama plays in one of those upset-waiting-to-
happen No. 5-vs.-No. 12 games in the first round of the tournament.
The 12th seeds have had a knack of pulling the shocker, and the
Crimson Tide hope to avoid an early exit...... ....

LSU Tigers
0Seed: No. 6, Chicago Regional. a Record: 20-9 (12-4 SEC
West). N Coach: John Brady (229-178). First-round oppo-
nent: UAB (21-10; 10-6 Conf. USA); Boise, Idaho; Thursday, 7:40
p.m. MT (CBS). gEWinner faces: Arizona or Utah State.
Outlook: LSU really started to turn the corner midway through
the month of January with a pair of overtime victories over Ohio
State and Arkansas, and capped its season with a 7-1 record in the
final eight games to claim a share of the SEC West Division
championship.
The Tigers' journey begins in Boise, Idaho, where they will take
an Alabama-Birmingham team that claimed one of the final at-large
berths into the tournament. Alabama-Birmingham was the team that
played spoiler with its upset of Kentucky in the second round of the
St. Louis Regional last year.
The Blazers like to press and shoot 3-pointers, which could
present a problem for a team that ranked 11th in the SEC in 3-point
field-goal percentage defense. LSU will have to prevent the Blazers
from forcing the tempo, and get the ball early and often to its big
men, Brandon Bass and Glen Davis.

Mississippi State Bulldogs
*Seed: No. 9, Austin Regional. 3 Record: 22-10 (9-7 SEC West).
,Coach: Rick Stansbury (148-74). First-round opponent:
Stanford (18-12; 11-7 Pac-10); Charlotte, N.C.; Friday, 9:45 p.m. ET
(CBS). BWinner faces: Duke or Delaware State.
Outlook: At least one Mississippi State player will have extra
motivation this weekend in Charlotte.
Shane Power, a transfer from Iowa State, wanted to play for either
Stanford or Duke coming out of high school. Instead, Power will
settle for the chance to knock both out of the Big Dance.
Unfortunately, Power is the latest Bulldog to sustain an injury,
hurting his ankle during the SEC tournament. Winsome Frazier
missed some time due to foot injury, and wasn't expected to be
playing at this point in the season, Marcus Campbell played only four
minutes in the SEC tournament because of a strained calf, and point
guard Gary Ervin is battling a hip pointer.
For the Bulldogs to get past the first weekend tournament, they
will have to rely heavily on Lawrence Roberts, an All-America
forward last season, who averages nearly 17 points and over 10
rebounds per game.

-Irl ;


i BAMA Guard Earnest Shelton
knocked down eight
3-pointers in the Crimson Tide's 69-52 victory
over Ole Miss in the conference tournament
quarterfinals, tying the tournament record and
school record for most 3-pointers in a game.

SS ANSAS Following his team's 65-46
loss to Tennessee in the first
round of the conference tournament, Arkansas
head coach Stan Heath announced that his team
would not accept an invitation to play in the
National Invitation Tournament. "As I look at how
we closed the season, I can see in my team's
eyes, we are emotionally and physically tired.
That does not translate well for a team that should
be going into post-season:' Heath said.

tIMBURN After an 89-58 loss to LSU in
the conference tournament
quarterfinals, Tigers head coach Jeff Lebo said
he was proud of the way his squad handled this
season's 14-17 campaign. "I told our seniors that
they have nothing to hang their heads about:'
Lebo said. "As a team, they maximized everything
they had. They didn't make excuses or finger-
point at each other."
Wi", mIDA Matt Walsh scored 26 points
and helped spark a 21-2 run as
the Gators claimed their first postseason
conference tournament championship with a
70-53 victory over Kentucky last Sunday in
Atlanta. "It feels good:' said Walsh, who won
tournament Most Valuable Player honors.
"Kentucky really is a great team who's been here
many times before. We wanted to take down the
champion."
W IRGIA The Bulldogs'eight wins this
season were the fewest by a
Georgia team since the 1974-75 squad went
7-18."There is a lot of things we can take from
this season, and a lot of it will be experience.We
are not happy that we are done, but we are
anxious to get started:' said Georgia center Dave
Bliss, who scored 14 points in a 76-6510ss to
Mississippi State in the first round of the
conference tournament.
O 'TUCKy i The Wildcats' loss to the
Gators was the program's
first loss in an SEC Tournament title game since
an 84-73 setback to Mississippi State in 1996.
The 17-point margin was also Kentucky's worst
loss in SEC tournament history, and the 53 points
were the fewest for a Kentucky team in a SEC
tournament game since 1984.
LSU head coach John Brady feels that
his team's 79-78 overtime loss to
Kentucky in the semifinals of the SEC tournament
will pay dividends in the NCAA tournament. This
Kentucky following is amazing, and for our team
to come in and play as well as it did in this
environment, it has to help your team even in
losing," Brady said.
MNiSISSIPPI Rebels head coach Rod
Barnes received a new
four-year contract, which will run through the
2008-09 season. "Rod has made positive
changes in the direction of our basketball
program:'," Ole Miss athletics director Pete Boone
said.

IS .S STATE Forward Lawrence
Roberts was held to eight
points and five rebounds in the Bulldogs' 80-64
loss to Florida in the conference tournament
quarterfinals. It marked only the third game this
season that the All-America candidate didn't have
double digits in points or rebounds.
06 AROLINA ATre Kelley basket with
1.9 seconds left in the first
round of the conference tournament game
against Ole Miss was originally scored as a three-
pointer, but the officials reviewed the play after the
Gamecocks came up with a steal with 0.9
seconds left, and ruled the basket was worth two
points. "We looked at four different angles, then
we looked at it twice from all four angles:' said
lead official Gerald Boudreaux following the
Rebels' 53-52 victory.

1BNNESSEE Despite the support of
Peyton Manning and
legendary Tennessee's women's coach Pat
Summit, Volunteers head coach Buzz Peterson
was fired last Sunday. In four years as
Tennessee's head coach, Peterson was 61-59.

OIMNDERBILT Shan Foster, who was
the first Commodore in
three seasons to be selected to the All-SEC
Freshman team, scored all 19 of his points in the
second half of the first round loss to Auburn.
Foster hit5 of 8 shots in the game.
