will feature a host of fun and
manly things, though women
may enjoy them as well. The


conference is on Friday, April
1-Saturday, April 2.
The conference has an-
nounced that the region will
get the rare opportunity to


view Wayne Pearson's World
Record Exhibit. This exhibit
travels around the country and
has on display trophy game
animals and fish.
Pearson, a veteran out-
doorsman, with over 25 years
experience in producing TV
shows for ESPN, assembled
this very impressive array of
world record trophies to help
promote his Outfitters Associ-
ation of America. This organi-
zation is dedicated to provid-
ing services to professional
outfitters and guides.
The exhibit features the
Hansen buck, the world
record typical whitetail, the
Missouri Monarch, the fa-
mous hole-in-the-horn buck,
as well as many more world
record class big game ani-
mals and sport fish.
"We are extremely lucky to
have this coming," Boyette
said. "This man usually
charges $1,700 a day for this
exhibit, but he's not charging
us."
On Friday at 7 p.m. Glen
Chappelear, founder of the
Sportsmen's Outreach and pro
bass fisherman, will speak.
"He uses his fishing rods
and reels and baits and things
in his ministry," Boyette said.

non Jr. who retired this month,
leaving the position open. A
nominating committee ap-
pointed by Gov. Bush nomi-
nated Fina, Assistant State At-
torney Bob Dekle of Lake
City and Madison attorney
Tom Stone.
"I am very pleased with the
Governor's choice." Fina said
,Monday as he made prepara-
tion to take office. "There
were some very qualified can-
didates to choose from," he
said of the 15 who originally
applied for the judgeship. Fina
added that he is looking for-
ward to the challenges ahead.
"I plan to work hard and do
the best I can," he said.
Fina said he appreciates his
family and their support of
him in his career and in this
endeavor.
Fina will assume the office
within a few days once the pa-
perwork is complete.
Fina's appointment to this
judgeship means the judge-
ship, which has been seated in
Suwannee County for the past
30 years, will continue to have
its office located in Live Oak
in the Suwannee County
Courthouse.
The Third Circuit consists
of Columbia, Suwannee,
Hamilton, Madison, Taylor,
Lafayette and Dixie counties
and circuit judges can and do
serve in any of these counties
as needed.
Currently, circuit sitting
judges are John Peach, Hamil-
ton County; Jim Roy Bean,


Taylor; while Judges Collins,
Vernon Douglas and Paul
Bryan reside in Columbia
County.
Fina, 48, has lived in Live
Oak since 1984 when he be-
came an assistant state attor-
ney in November of that year.
With the exception of one
year working for the Shelby
County District Attorney's Of-
fice in Columbina,. Al while
in his last year of law school,
Fina has practiced his entire
career in Live Oak with the
Third Circuit State Attorney's
office. During this time, he's
tried about every type crimi-
nal case possible, including
two recently where men con-
victed of sex crimes against
children were sentenced to
chemical castration at Fina's
request. He currently is a
member of the Special Prose-
cutions Unit and handles pros-
ecutions of the most danger-
ous criminals, handling com-
plex cases and working with
the most vulnerable and help-
less victims, including homi-
cides, white collar crimes,
identity theft, embezzlement,
crimes against children and
crimes against senior citizens.
He has also tried civil cases
involving commitment of vio-
lent sexual offenders, Baker
Acts and bond forfeitures.
Fina has received many ex-
ecutive appointments from the
Governor's Office to handle
cases involving conflict in
other circuits. He's served in
the First, Second, Fourth,
Eighth and Fourteenth Judi-
cial Circuits handling these

Gout Can Be Managed With Medications
Gout, a condition occurring throughout the body, is caused by the
buildup of uric acid in the joints. Excessively high levels of uric acid
result from either overproduction in the liver or consumption of a rich diet
in red meat, cream sauces, sardines, liver, scallops, and red wine. Over
time, uric acid crystallizes in joint spaces causing inflammation, swelling,
stiffness, and pain. Surprisingly, diabetes, obesity, kidney disease, and
sickle cell anemia all raise a person's risk of developing gout. Regular
alcohol consumption interferes with removal of uric acid from the body
and makes the condition worse.
The two most common drug treatments are allopurinol or occasional
colchicine. One causes less uric acid to be produced by the body. The
other enhances the elimination of uric acid that is already present. Both of
these drugs rely heavily on the kidneys for elimination. Therefore, they
may need decreased doses in persons with kidney disease. Commonly
forgotten, avoiding alcohol and rich foods may also help the condition, as
will drinking plenty of water, regular exercise, and maintaining a healthy
weight. Talk to your pharmacist if you have questions about gout or the
drugs used to treat it.

types of cases.
Fina served as a sports cor-
respondent for the Suwannee
Democrat from 1991-95, writ-
ing baseball stories about his
favorite team, the Atlanta
Braves. He's been a delegate
to the Governor's Florida Fo-
rum for Legislative Session in
1995, received the Guardian
Ad Litem Child's Best Friend
Award in 1999, was named
the Third Circuit State Attor-
ney's Attorney of the Year for
2004, and has done extensive
educational workshops and
lecturing. He's a member of
various legal professional so-
cieties, the Live Oak Kiwanis
Club, served on various com-
mittees, including as president
and secretary of the local Bar
Association and Domestic Vi-
olence Prevention Task Force.
He's an active Bulldog Boost-
er member, an elder at the
First Presbyterian Church of
Live Oak and is a husband and
father of two children, one in
college and another in high
school.
In his application for the
judgeship, Fina said his great-
est asset to serve as a circuit,
judge "would be my ability to
work in harmony with oth-
ers."
Fina had sought appoint-
ment to a circuit and county
judgeship previously, as well
as running for election for
Suwannee County judge.

SUMMARY

City Council

March 8 meeting
At the March meeting of the Live Oak City Council meet-
ing, the following items were addressed:
1. Began the first step of amending Ordinance 1083 so
that when the 15th of month falls on a weekend and the fol-
lowing Monday is a holiday, all city utility bills will be due
the following day, Tuesday, by 5 p.m. This allows city resi-
dents to have more time to get their bills to City Hall due to
holidays. Late fees won't be assessed until the next morning
beginning at 8 a.m.
2. Opened bids for the Conner Street Stormwater Project
from Associated Construction Services of Live Oak, Com-
mercial Industrial Corp. of Reddick, J.B. Coxwell Contract-
ing, Inc. of Jacksonville and Entech Enterprises, Inc. of Tal-
lahassee. A decision was to be made at a later date.
3. Heard from Live Oak Police Chief Nolan McLeod that
he is applying for a Justice Assistance Grant in the amount of
$11,186 for a community outreach project.
4. Held a first hearing on Ordinance 1084 regarding haz-
ardous fences (barbed wire) in the city. This ordinance will
carry a permit fee for altering or erecting fences within the
city plus one percent of the cost in excess of $500 of the
fence. This ordinance makes it illegal to erect a barbed wire
fence within the city, but does not apply to barbed wire used
as security wire within a commercial business an and placed
at the top fences six feet or higher on brackets vertically
mounted or installed an angel, provided that security barbed
wire installed at an angle toward a public walkway or public
street shall not extend over or beyond any portion of public
walkways or public streets. The ordinance also makes any
electrified fences illegal in the city unless it's for bonified
agricultural purposes.

COMMENTARY

Minimum wage, maximum folly


Senators Edward Kennedy, D-
Mass., and Rick Santorum, R-Pa.,
both introduced proposals to in- -
crease the minimum'wage from its ....
current $5.15 an hour. Sen. .'
Kennedy's proposal would have -
raised the minimum wage to $7.25
in three steps over 26 months, while
Sen. Santorum's would have raised � 20
it to $6.25 in two steps over 18 BY WALTE
months. Two weeks ago, both mea-
sures failed passage in the Senate.
Sen. Kennedy said, "I believe that anyone who works 40
hours a week, 52 weeks a year, should not live in poverty in
the richest country in the world," after telling fellow senators
that minimum wage workers earn $5,000 below the poverty
line for a family of three. Sen. Santorum said, "I feel very
comfortable that our proposal keeps the balance between the
ability of lower-skilled employees to enter the work force at a
wage in which they are compensated for the skills they bring
to the job."
The idea that minimum wage legislation is an anti-poverty -
tool is simply sheer nonsense. Were it an anti-poverty weapon,
we might save loads of foreign aid expenditures simply by ad-
vising legislators in the world's poorest countries, such as
Haiti, Bangladesh and Ethiopia, to legislate higher minimum
wages. Even applied to the United States, there's little evi-
dence suggesting that increases in the minimum wage help the
poor. Plus, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only
2,2 percent of working adults earn the minimum wage.
The crucial question for any policy is not what are its inten-
tions but what are its effects? One of its effects is readily seen
by putting yourself in the place of an employer and asking: If
I must pay $6.25 or $7.25 an hour to whomever I hire, does it
make sense for me to hire a worker whose skills enable him to
produce only $4.00 worth of value per hour? Most employers '
would view doing so as a losing economic proposition. Thus,
one effect of minimum wages is that of discriminating against
the employment of low-skilled workers.
For the most part, teenagers dominate the low-skilled work-

er category. They lack the maturity,
skills and experience of adults.
Black teenagers not only share
those characteristics, but they are
additionally burdened by grossly
fraudulent education, making them
even lower skilled.
Bureau of Labor Statistics unem-
ployment data confirms the eco-
nomic prediction about minimum
wage effects. Currently, the teen
unemployment rate is 16 percent


for whites and 32 percent for blacks. In 1948, the unemploy-
ment rate for black teens (16-17) was lower (9.4 percent) than
white teens (10.2 percent). Plus, black teens were more active
in the labor force.
How might we explain that? How about arguing that there
was less racial discrimination in 1948, or back then black
teens were more highly educated than white teens? Of course,
such arguments would be nonsense. The fact of the matter is
that while there was a minimum wage of 40 cents an hour pri-
or to 1948, it had been essentially repealed by the post-World
War II inflation; however, with successive increases in the
minimum wage, black teen unemployment rose relative to
white teens to where it has become permanently double that
of white teens.
If the minimum wage law has these effects, then how does
it pass political muster? The current Social Security debate
over private accounts gives us a hint. In the political arena,
you dump on people who can't dump back on you. Few politi-
cians owe their office to the youth vote. Despite the "concern
for the children" malarkey they spout, it's voting age adults to
whom politicians are beholden. It turns out that adults benefit
from the discriminatory effects of minimum wages, and older
adults benefit from Social Security intergenerational transfers.

Boyd receives "Spirit of Enterprise" award

- U.S. Chamber honors Congressman Boyd for backing business -


Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North Florida) recently re-
ceived the "Spirit of Enterprise" award from the United
States Chamber of Commerce for his strong support for a
pro-economic growth legislative agenda in the second ses-
sion of the 108th Congress.
"It is such an honor to receive this award from the U.S.
Chamber of Commerce," said Congressman Boyd. "The fed-

economic opportunity for our businesses, and I am proud to
work with the Chamber of Commerce to promote more eco-
nomic growth. Our communities are stronger because of the
work and dedication of the local chambers and their mem-
bership, and I will continue to support our chambersiand the
issues that are important for the economic development of
North Florida."
The Chamber awards the "Spirit of
Enterprise" based on rankings it gives
1 members of Congress for key business
votes. Among the key votes counted by
the Chamber in 2004 were votes on
medical liability reform, the U.S.-Aus-
tralia free trade agreement, pension re-
form and tax relief.
"As America's economy strengthens,
we are clearly seeing the benefits of
supporting pro-growth policies in Con-
gress," said Chamber President and
CEO Thomas Donohue. "On key issues
like cutting taxes, trade and health care
reform, this award recognizes the law-
makers who are paving the way for our
continued economic expansion."
Chamber-designated "key votes" are
recorded floor votes on issues estab-
' lished as priorities by the Chamber's
board of directors and on which the

Good Samaritan's Purse

collect Easter shoeboxes


This Easter season,
Samaritan's Purse is spon-
soring a special Operation
Christmas Child collection
of gift-filled shoeboxes for
girls'and boys who survived
the tsunami.
Because these children
have lost virtually every-
thing, shoeboxes should con-
tain a new T-shirt, school
supplies, toys, hard candy,
cuddly stuffed animals, and
hygiene items.
As there is no local collec-
tion site, shoeboxes should
be mailed directly to Samar-
itan's

Thank you
Pinemount Baptist Church
would like to thank everyone
who participated in the holi-
day gift fund-raiser. Thank
you for all of your support
and contributions. We would
also like to congratulate the
Gift winners. First prize, a
$200 Thomas Kincaid print
went to John Fraddosio of
McAlpin. The $100 cash sec-
ond prize was won by
George Kelton of Live Oak
and the $100 Mary Kay pam-
pering basket was won by
Loretta Box of Live Oak.
Pinemount Baptist Church is
currently in the midst of the
construction of a youth
AWANA building and a new
sanctuary. All proceeds from
the holiday fund-raiser bene-
fited the building fund.
Thank you again for all of
your support during this en-
deavor. We also extend an
extra added thank you to
George Kelton who in the
true meaning of Christmas -
GIVING - gave his winnings
so a child in the community
would be able to celebrate
Christmas.

The Refuge Tabernacle
church family was busy last
Saturday transforming the old
Wellborn Baptist offices and
Sunday School rooms building
on CR 137.
Lovely stained glass double
doors are in place at the north
entrance. All the inside walls
have been removed creating a
beautiful big sanctuary that
dreams of seating 200 worship-
pers. Maybe more! Three car-
penter guys were happily at
work but stopped long enough
to allow me to give them a stack
of FoodSource Ministry news-
papers to distribute on Sunday.
From the old fellowship hall
wing we could hear piano music
and little kids were out-of-doors
enjoying the play yard. Rejoice
and be glad for this patch of con-
secrated ground in our home-
town is vibrant again with new
life. Worship style is Pente-
costal.
Wellborn Masonic Lodge
yard was full of cars and trucks
Saturday afternoon. A Farewell
Party for SPC Gerald Roach
landed at the lodge. The first in-
vitation e-mailed to family and
friends revealed plans to meet at
Mt. Beulah Baptist Church but
the oopss" second invitation
switched location to the Lodge.
Carver family reunion reserves
Mt. Beulah Baptist, Wellborn,
on the third March Saturday as
an annual event. This year Carv-
er folks gathered at Mt. Beulah


with special thanksgiving on ac-
count of improving hospital re-
ports about Maxine Downing
who has been a mainstay of
Carver reunions through the
years.
SPC Gerald Roach volun-
teered and received orders to be
mobilized, March 21, with the
53rd Support Battalion of Tam-
pa which is headed for
Afghanistan. The reason for the
gathering makes an old lady like
me feel weepy. Gerald is very
handsome. He and his wife
Dawn embody the best of who
we are in this country. Their son
Jacob is almost waist high now
and goes to pre-school kinder-
garten in Live Oak and was into
the party's socialization oppor-
tunity in a big way. Daughter
Taylor is knee high and by par-
ty's end she had opted for her
grandmother Colleen Cody's
lap. I wrote birth announce-
ments for both these babies and
it seems like only yesterday.
Gerald's dad said to me "This is
what young men do, Jinny, and
we are proud he wants to defend
our way of life." His momma,
Patty said "I'm OK with his de-
cision most of the time but the
emotion seems to roll over me in
waves." Dawn's grandma Pat
Cusic admitted she was grateful
that Gerald isn't going to Iraq
and she is glad to have trans-
planted herself from Miami to
her home in nearby Live Oak,
especially now. Dawn has a day

job and two children and many
family and friends. Maybe we
are enough to make up her own
support battalion on the home
front. Saturday gave us a chance
to eat with each other and to hug
Gerald and Dawn, for family
reminiscing and to write love
notes for them to read later. We
promised continuous prayers of
protection. This is what we
homefolks do, It matters.
Joyce Taylor shared news that
our retired County Commission-
er Robert's gifts and graces are
at work on our behalf again. He
completed a three-month course
to qualify him as a Certified
Court Mediator and can be
found in that role on the second
Friday each month.
Goldie Marie and Ted Fralick
welcomed home all three of
their children, college son Chad
(U. ofF.) and Nicky and Antho-
ny Sutton from Jacksonville.
Fred Gaylard and son Melvin
fried the fish at their home and
Goldie Gaylard was the cheese
grits expert.
All this and more was a ripple
effect. from Christie Kirby's
wedding at First Baptist Church,
Live Oak.
Saturday night County Fair
entrees earned at least five blue
and red ribbons for Wellborn,
Linda Young admitted. Melba
Duval's hog raising stories were
fun to be in on especially when
it was time to persuade pig,
grown into a perfect weight hog,
to hop into the trailer to transport
him to the County Fair at the
Live Oak Coliseum. Melba's
hog sold for $4.25 a pound and
that makes for almost $1,000!
It's enough to make everyone
smile in approval.
. A week from Thursday is
March 31 and Sheriff Tony
Cameron comes to Wellborn
Neighborhood Watch. Plan
on it at Blake Lowe Building
at 7 p.m.


Eligible producers may sign-
up for the Crop Disaster Pro-
gram (CDP), a program that au-
thorizes crop loss assistance for
producers who suffered 2003 or
2004 and certain 2005 crop
losses from damaging weather
announced Kevin Kelley, State
Executive Director of the Farm
Service Agency. Sign-up began
March 14. The closing date for
this sign-up will be announced
at a later date.
"We are pleased to be able to
provide these benefits to pro-
ducers as quickly as possible,"
Kelley said. "Drought, floods
and hurricanes are unpre-
dictable weather events that put
farmers and ranchers at risk in
producing a dependable and af-


fordable national food supply."
Eligibility for CDP is similar
to that of the 2001-2002 Crop
Disaster Program. Producers
suffering a greater than 35-per-
cent production loss and/or
more than a 20-percent quality
loss are eligible. The payment
rate for CDP has been increased
to'65 percent of the established
commodity price for insured
crops and noninsured crops, and
60 percent of the price for unin-
sured commodities. Previous
disaster assistance provided
payments of 50 percent of the
established commodity price for
insured and non-insurable crops
and 45 percent for uninsured
crops. The payment limit is
$80,000 per person for' all


2003/2004/2005 CDP. pay-
ments.
Producers may apply for
CDP for any crops that are eligi-
ble for coverage under the Fed-
eral Crop Insurance or the Non-
insured Assistance Program.
This program results from Con-
gressional passage last October
of the Military ConstructionAp-
propriations and Emergency
Hurricane Supplemental Appro-
priations Act, 2005 (the Act).
As part of the CDP imple-
mentation process, USDA has
prepared a fact sheet that con-
tains information about the dis-
aster assistance programs. For
more, information on these is-
sues, visit USDA's website at

Work on Hal
Adams Bridge
will require
24-hour lane
closures
The repainting of the Hal
Adams Bridge on State Road 51
north of Mayo was scheduled to
begin Monday, March 21 and
will require 24-hour lane clo-
sures, according to the Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDOT).
Traffic over the bridge will be
reduced to one lane, which will
be controlled by temporary traffic
signals at each end of the bridge.
The southbound lane is sched-
uled to be closed so traffic will be
diverted to the northbound lane,
and northbound traffic will be
stopped by a traffic signal to al-
low the safe passage of south-
bound motorists. Later, the north-
bound lane will be closed.
The project is estimated to take
seven months to complete. VHP
Enterprises, Inc. is under contract
to FDOT to do the work at a cost
of $731,917.
The repainting will protect the
steel frame of the suspension
bridge which was built in 1947.
The open travel lane will not
be reduced in width to cars and
pickup trucks but if larger vehi-
cles and especially wide loads
used the bridge and both lanes to
cross, they will no longer be al-
lowed because the contractor's
equipment will be parked in the
closed lane. Wide loads should
use US 129 in Suwannee County
or US 221 in Taylor County.
Any questions about the work
should be directed to the FDOT.

proper use of land.
The conservation prac-

our soils healthy. Soil is a
basic but most important
resource affecting individ-
uals and the national
economy today.
Florida's rapidly grows

challenges in conserving
our natural resources.

I was wondering if you can paint over wall
paper. I have a cottage that I need to paint
and it has wall paper now. The paper is
stuck on the wall VERY well and I would
like to just paint over it. Can I do that?

Tf the paper is -tn'ck uW 'O( good. -es
)OLI could palm o'et it. This isn'i ieall\
recommended though. It is always better
to remove the wall paper, clean up and
smooth out the wall and paint the wall so
you know the whole thing doesn't start
peeling on you.

ing is a wonderful gift to give a student.
This program is very important because it
gives students the chance to have someone
help them achieve their goals and to be their
friend. I am very proud of the accomplish-
ments that Frankie has made this year,"


Mitchell said.
Frankie Jones is involved in ROTC and
says, "My mentor is someone to talk to when
you just need to talk. This program is great
because it gives me the chance to get a high-

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 23, 2005 * SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK PAGE hA


The fair has come and gone
with lots of rain accompany-
ing it but reports are it was
good in spite of the dampness.
There certainly was lots for
folks to do at the Suwannee
County Fair last week.
This week, there is still lots
to do. SpringFest kicks off
Thursday evening, March 24,
at the Spirit of Suwannee Mu-
sic Park at 4 p.m. with the
New Traditionals, followed by
the Biscuit Burners, Old
School Freight Train, The
Waybacks, The Duhks and
ending the evening with Don-
na the Buffalo on the Meadow
Stage. Over on the Music Hall
Stage the events begin at 7 p.
m. with the 2005 Suwannee
Springfest Song Contest fi-
nals, followed by the song
contest winner and then Keith
Frank and the Soileau Zydeco
Band. After that, Friday
through Sunday, it's back to
back music and entertainment
on every stage including
workshops with some of the
most famous musicians today


performing. For more, see to-
day's story on the front page
and go to musicliveshere.com,
click on concerts and events,
then go to SpringFest sched-
ule. You won't' want to miss
what SpringFest has to offer in
the way of entertainment.
Some of the best in today's
music world will be perform-
ing. Folks, you can't live any-
where in the world and get
better entertainment this close
to home with the top people in
entertainment except right
here in Suwannee County.
If you're a man and like
sports (well, duh!), the place
for you to be next week is
Mt. Olive Baptist Church in
Wellborn for that church's
outreach that is truly amaz-
ing. The event will feature a
special speaker, a traveling
sports show and lots more,
including food, food and
food. One of the main
movers and shakers in this
event is Don Boyette so you
know it's being done right.
See today's story on the front


page to get the details.
Sunday is Easter and will be
observed around the world.Let
us not forget what Easter is all
about. It's not about bunny rab-
bits and Easter eggs, new
dresses and going to church for
the only Sunday in a year or
even visiting grandma and
grandpa. It's about Jesus
Christ, the Son of God, arising
from the dead on the third day
after he was cruelly put to
death on the cross on Good
Friday for the sins of the
world.Christ still lives today as
he did on that third day as He
said He would. Let us set aside
time to praise God for His Son
and all His blessings during
this very blessed time of the
year.
The azaleas at my house are
finally beginning to bloom as I
hear storms are approaching
that could blow all those
blooms away! Hasn't this been
an unusual year? Hope you got
your caladiums on Saturday
but remember, don't plant until
you read the directions. Cala-
diums like warm ground and
it's just not there yet. However,
there are lots of plants ready to
grow and the area nurseries are
filled with beautiful flowers,
lots of them new to me, gor-
geous pots and garden acces-
sories to get you buying and
planting and ideas galore. Get
our there, spend a little money
anfd get those hands dirty!
You'll be glad you did.

especially banjos, mandolins,
fiddles and back to the roots
music that tears at your soul

talents right here in Live Oak
that have included Dr. Ralph
Stanley, Del McCoury, Nitty
Gritty Dirt Band, the Byrd's
Roger McGuinn and Chris
Hillman, as well- as folk icon
Doc Watson and others. The
festival draws a diverse and
ever-growing audience which

magnificent moss-draped oaks
along the Suwannee River
where the 500 plus acres of the
Spirit of Suwannee Music Park
are located just north of Inter-
state 10 on US 129 north near
Live Oak.
Festival organizers Beth and
Randy Judy developed the

brought significant benefit to
this area in economic benefits.

will be held March 24-27.

It's Almost Spring,
For some spring is the most welcome
season of the year. It ushers in the warmer
sunshine, the longer days, the flowers and
new life of another year. Spring of 1970 is
almost at the door.
It begins always On the 21st, or within
forty-eight hours of it, when the sun shines
exactly half the twenty-four hour day. This is
known as the Spring Equinox, It means the
Summer Solstice is only three months away.
Spring seems to be, as much as any-
thing, a time of hope. It was the time of the
Resurrection. It is the time for new life by the
plants and flowers and trees. It is the time
for students and scholars to get the "fever,"
and long to get into the outdoors again.
To those who weary of winter, spring
is a joyful world. To baseball fans, fisherman,.
athletes, students, and many others, it is
something special. Perhaps the over-enthusi-
astic gardener is the best personification of
the lines: "Hope springs eternal in the hu-
man breast." Spring ignites in him a frenzy.

Suwannee High girls
weightlifting competed in a
much tougher venue this year.
For the first time the clean and
jerk was a girls' event. This
difficult lift is hard to master
and can be dangerous. Two
Suwannee High lifters mas-
tered the clean and jerk and
competed at the state meet in
Deland this year. Danielle
Smith and Kayla Gandiana


competed at state in their re-
spective weightclasses. Smith
placed sixth and is determined
to win next year.
High-point Award and Out-
standing Lifter went to
Danielle Smith. Smith was
first in all Suwannee's regular
meets and placed sixth at state.
The Pound-per-Pound
Award went to Kayla Gandi-
ana.
Outstanding Freshman went
to Tildra Howard.

T. Hayden, Haskovec captured Daytona wins


Tommy Hayden, of Owens-
boro, Ky., put on a dominating
performance aboard his No. 1
factory Kawasaki to claim vic-
tory at the Pro Honda Oils Su-
persport final at historic Day-
tona International Speedway.
Hayden's margin of victory
over second-place rider Jamie'
Hacking was 3.723 seconds,
the largest margin of victory in
the Daytona Supersport race
-since 1998.
"Since we got here we made
very few changes," Hayden


said. "The bike was really
good. I definitely couldn't ask
more out of my bike, I mean the
thing was unbelievable, easy to
ride and super fast. I got the
pole and I think I led every lap
so I couldn't ask for anything
better.
"You come in with a new
track and a new bike and you
never know what to expect. Ob-
viously this is how I wanted it
to turn out. I've been here many
times on slow bikes so it felt re-
ally good when I got out there


and had the fastest bike."
This year's Pro Honda Oils
Supersport marked another
heartbreaker for second-place
finisher Hacking, who has now
finished runner up at Daytona
in major events three times. Ja-
son DiSalvo nosed out Suzuki's
Ben Spies for third place.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: What are some of the risk factors for
osteoporosis?
A: Osteoporosis is a condition
characterized by decreasing bone mass
and density. It is a condition that usually
develops later in life and can lead to
tooth loss if the bone that supports the
teeth loses density and can no longer
support them. People suffering from
osteoporosis also are at higher risk for
bone fractures. Risk factors include
being female, Caucasian, Asian, having
a slender build, smoking, heavy daily
alcohol intake, life-long low calcium
intake, a sedentary lifestyle and a family
history of the condition. Experts
recommend that all women over age 65
should be screened as well as any
postmeonopausal women who have
suffered bone fractures or have one or
more of the above mentioned risk
factors. Pre-menopausal women with
any of the risk factors should talk with
their physician about a bone scan. If you
think you may be at risk for osteoporosis,
talk to your physician and your dentist
about steps you should take.

Tips to help women establish
overall good health habits
(MS) - Every spring, people revive their New Year's resolutions
long enough to get themselves in shape for summer sports and
swimwear. As national organizations recognize Stress Awareness
Month, we are also encouraged to focus on our bodies for reasons
other than the competitive or aesthetic. But, with so much noise
about improving yourself physically, it's often difficult to remember
that your main goal should be having good health.
Dr. Barbara North, medical director for Instead, Inc., a company
devoted to developing better alternatives for women's health, says
women have distinct
needs when it comes to
' attaining and
maintaining good
health. Dr. North says
" " "feminine health is
.. ..often neglected, but
F. that it is key to overall
Good health. She offers
'fc the following tips to
help ensure it is not
overlooked.
Washing and
washes: Everyday
cleansing is crucial to
feminine hygiene, but
certain feminine
" washes can actually be
harmful to your health.
moStudies have shown
douching can increase
Se the risk of pelvic
,,~ ,, inflammatory disease
and cervical cancer. In
fact, the American
C o e g e of
Obstetricians and
FEMININE HEALTH is an essential part of overall good Gynecologists
health.
S.,, . recommends women
avoid it because it can laide symptoms of an infection or push the
infection farther up into their reproductive tract.
Preventing infections: Women can contract urinary tract
infections (UTIs) from seemingly harmless sources. Typical culprits
can be bubble baths, infrequent urination, tight clothing or improper
wiping. The best protective measures are drinking plenty of water
and cranberry juice, and keeping clean with mild soap and proper
wiping. It's also important to use the restroom as soon as you need
too - waitingtoo long can be both harmful and painful to your
body.
Managing cycles: For some women, tampons and pads can cause
more problems than they solve. From
irritation caused by fibers or chemicals, to risks of Toxic Shock
Syndrome (TSS), the traditional choices are not always the best
solutions. One option is the Instead Softcup feminine hygiene
product, which eliminates the threat of TSS by collecting, rather
than
absorbing, flow, while also promoting comfort. It's available at
www.softcup.com.
Achieving balance: Taking antibiotics can alter the balance of a
woman's system, often resulting in a yeast infection. When killing
the body's "bad" bacteria, antibiotics suppress the naturally
occurring "good" bacteria that control yeast fungus. Women who
take oral antibiotics or steroids should consult their doctors to
determine the best course of action for continuing treatment.
Women need to know how to achieve and maintain good health
on a daily basis - both through nutrition and with feminine
hygiene. Dr. North says that a thorough understanding of feminine
hygiene may be the key to helping more women achieve good health
this spring. ~I

Cheesecake certainly looks luscious,
but it's the taste and texture that are the
true hallmarks of this dessert. Cheesecake
can take on just about any palate-pleasing
flavor, from citrus, berry or orchard fruits

silky smooth texture that is the real stand-
