A 17-year-old Live Oak youth
lost his life in a one-vehicle acci-
dent west of Fort White early Sun-
day morning where authorities say
alcohol was involved. Two passen-

juries, including the driver of the

Water levels on the Suwannee and
Santa Fe Rivers have risen to the
point where "no-wake zones" are
now in effect, according to the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC).
FWC, in conjunction with the
Suwannee River Water Management
District, have been monitoring the
river levels. FWC officers have been
patrolling the affected areas of the
rivers to ensure the no-wake zones
are enforced.
According to FWC's Lt. Donald
Buchanan, area supervisor, "When
the water level at Branford reaches
26 feet, a no-wake/idle zone goes
into effect on the Suwannee River
from the US 27 Bridge in Branford
south to Fowlers Bluff, and on the
Santa Fe River from the mouth north

ses life in Fort White crash


Sunday at Shands at UF.
A passenger, Johnny Railey, 25,
formerly of White Springs but now
a resident of Fort White, suffered
minor injuries. According to FHP,
Railey was arrested after the crash
and charged with providing alcohol
to a minor.
The driver of the 2000 Chevrolet
pickup truck, Ronald David Shaw,
19, Fort White, suffered minor in-


jures in the crash. Shaw, FHP said,
fled the scene immediately after
the crash and was arrested a short
time later at a residence of Fort
White. Shaw has been charged
with leaving the scene of death or
injury, violation of community
control on Columbia County
charges and providing alcohol to a
minor, according to FHP. He re-
mains jailed in Columbia County,


according to FHP's Mike Bur-
roughs who said other charges will
likely be filed against Shaw once
the investigation into the crash and
fatality is complete.
None of the four in the accident
were wearing seat belts when the
crash happened, FHP said.

Chevrolet.
The SRWMD staff dis-
cussed the project with one or
more contractors and stated
the project can be completed
within the allotted funds and
not to exceed $110,000.
The low bid of $181,000 ex-


ceeded the amount budgeted
by the city for this project. The
city requested the SRWMD to
assist with the rebidding
process rather than have the
city go through the timely re-
bidding process again.
The excavation project was
awarded to Blu Rok Inc. from
Perry. Blue Rok Inc. has 60
days to complete the project.
Approximately 63,000 cubic

was at 26.68 Monday."
"At the present time, we're
asking boaters to stay off the
rivers in these affected areas
until conditions improve and
the water levels decrease.
There are underwater naviga-
tional hazards which can
cause problems for boaters,"
Buchanan said.
"The wakes caused by the
boaters running through the
areas cause damage to the
property along the river


front," Buchanan explained.
"Boaters need to know that
they will be held responsible
for their boat wake and ac-
tions."
FWC officers are citing
those boaters who do not obey
the no-wake zones with care-
less operation.
"FWC officers are also pro-
viding law enforcement secu-
rity in these affected areas and
will be on the lookout for sus-
picious activity," Buchanan
said.

develop the detention facility,
which began March 16.
Live Oak Director of Public
Works Bob Farley, stated the
notice of award for the con-
veyance part of the project was
issued to Entech Enterprises
Inc. of Tallahassee.
Currently the city is waiting
on permits from the Depart-
ment of Transportation and
CSX Railroad, which Farley
states, takes about 30 days.
Farley hopes the project can
be conducted with little disrup-
tion to any local businesses
and/or street closings on and
around the downtown Conner
Street area.
' Farley said the project will
consist of digging trenches and
laying pipe around the Suwan-
nee Democrat facility and will
be completed in 90 days.
"We are going to do the best
we can to try to provide access
without shutting anything
down," Farley said. Farley stat-
ed the project is expected to be
totally complete sometime in
June.

One lane of 1-75 still closed


Work continues at MM 400


Work continues on repairs
to Interstate 75 (1-75) where
a sinkhole developed in the
outside southbound lane in
north Alachua County and is
requiring that two lanes be
closed in the southbound di-
rection, according to the
Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT).
The southbound center
lane at mile marker 400 was
closed about 1 p.m., Tues-
day, and will remain closed,
along with the outside lane,
while workers begin prepa-
rations to replace the asphalt


on the outside travel lane.
Because the work is so close
to the center lane, the clo-
sure will keep the workers
safe and keep the motorists
away from the area where
the hole developed.
The FDOT's contractor
who was hired to fill the
cavity with grout finished
their work on Tuesday at
noon. Now, the FDOT has
hired a paving contractor,
Hipp Construction Company
of Alachua, to finish the job
by filling the top layer with
concrete and placing asphalt


on top of that.
A fast-drying compound
added to the concrete has-
tened the curing time and the
travel lane was scheduled to
be ready to pave by late
Tuesday afternoon. Rain
may affect the schedule but
the FDOT should have all
southbound lanes open by
Friday.
To avoid traffic backups
on the interstate, motorists

MVINORITY

Ic, 2005 Creators Syndicate
BY WALTER WILLIAMS

Stupid airport security
For most of my professional life, I've traveled frequently
- sometimes boarding a commercial flight two, three or
four times a month for lucrative speaking engagements.
Over the past three years, the frequency has fallen to an av-
erage of once or twice a year. The reason is simple. I don't
want to be arrested or detained for questioning some of the
senseless airport security procedures. Don't get me wrong.
I'm for security but against stupidity. Let's look at some of
it starting off with a hypothetical question.
You're a detective. A woman reports a rape. How would
you go about finding the .perpetrator? Would you confine
your search to males or would you include females as well?
You say, "Williams, that would be stupid to include fe-
males!" But not if Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta
were your supervisor. You might be ordered to investigate
females and males as possible suspects to avoid committing
the politically incorrect sin of sex profiling.
With regard to airport security, Mineta said, "While the se-
curity procedures are not based on the race, ethnicity, reli-
gion or gender of passengers, we also want to assure that in
practice, the system does not disproportionately select mem-
bers of any particular minority group." That means Ameri-
cans \\ho fit np terrorist profile - mothers with children,
blind and disabled people, elderly couples - are frisked,
groped and hassled. What's even more stupid is that pilots
and flight attendants face similar screening. Here's my ques-
tion to you: If a pilot is intent on crashing a plane into a
building, does he need to carry anything on board to do it?
On several occasions, having gone through screening
without setting off any alarms, I've been pulled aside for ad-
ditional screening. Imagine that you're there with a Trans-
portation Security Administration (TSA) supervisor and I'm
being subjected to additional screening. You offer him a bet
whereby if Williams is discovered to be in possession of
something that endangers security - a knife, gun or bomb
- you'll pay him $5,000, and if I'm not, he'll pay you $100.
Do you think he'll take your offer? I'm betting he wouldn't.
What about the TSA confiscation of "dangerous" person-
al items such as tweezers, hat pins, sewing scissors, knitting
needles, etc.? I hope I'm not giving the TSA ideas, but I've
watched a number of television shows featuring supermax
prisons like California's Pelican Bay. Among the items pris-
oners fashion into lethal weapons are ballpoint pens, belts,
eyeglass temples, glass containers and toothbrushes, all of
which the TSA permits on airplanes. So what's the TSA's
reasoning for allowing ballpoint pens on planes but not
tweezers?
Most hijackings and recent terrorist acts have been com-
mitted by young Muslim extremists. That's not to say that all
or nearly all Muslims pose a threat to security. But if one is
looking for potential terrorists, the larger proportion of re-
sources should be spent screening Muslim passengers.
Screening the blind and disabled, mothers and children, and
senior citizens is not going to have much of a payoff unless
the goal is not to have tweezers or a G.I. Joe doll holding a
rifle on the plane.
If I were a terrorist, I'd appreciate the fact that the TSA
treats every passenger as having an equal likelihood of be-
ing a security threat. Fewer resources would be available to
screen me. When law-abiding people are the subject of pro-
filing, it's unfair, and they are insulted - and rightfully so.
The true source of the injustice they face are those responsi-
ble for making "Muslim" near synonymous with "terror-
ism."
Even if I don't fly commercial anymore, I care about the
TSA's waste of resources. There are potential terrorist tar-
gets in many areas such as ports, railroads and infrastruc-
ture, but roughly 90 percent of TSA's funding is spent on air-
ports operating under the assumption that every passenger
and every bag have an equal likelihood of being a security
threat. That's stupid.

Kathryn "Kitty"
McCarn McMullen
August 13, 1915 -
March 30, 2005

athryn "Kitty" Mc-
Cam McMullen, 89,
11 of Live Oak, a gra-
cious southern lady, passed
away peacefully on Wednes-
day, March 30, 2005, in her
beloved home surrounded by
her loving family.
Born on Aug. 13, 1915, in
Pinkard, Ala., she grew up in
Jacksonville where she gradu-
ated from Lee High School in
1933. On May 1, 1935, she
married John L. "Mac" Mc-
Mullen of Live Oak, where
she moved and resided. May
1, 2005 would have been their
70th wedding anniversary.
After the tragic death of
their seven-year-old son, Geri,
in 1945, she dedicated her life
and God-given talent to her
garden in his honor. Mc-
Mullen transformed her bare
wooded lot into an exquisitely
beautiful garden by creating a
lush palette of colors and tex-
tures through the use of flow-
ers, trees, grass and shrubbery.
"Miss Kitty's" garden, known
throughout the south, has been
one of the most viewed and
photographed private gardens.
She received recognition in
newspapers, magazines and
on television. The Suwannee
Democrat named her "Live
Oak's Garden Angel" and
Mayor Noes. proclaimed her,
"Mrs. Christmas" for her 60-
plus yeArs of outstanding
Christmas decorations.
McMullen touched count-
less lives through her generos-
ity, kindness, compassion and
love of her family and fellow


man. She upheld her strong
convictions to high standards
and values throughout her life.
McMullen leaves a wonderful
legacy to the world.
She was a member of many
civic and community organi-
zations. McMullen was a
member of the First United
Methodist Church. In her later
homebound years, she and
husband "Mac" were lovingly
cared for by the pastor and
members of the senior adult
ministry of First Baptist
Church.
Survivors include her hus-
band, John L. "Mac" Mc-
Mullen of Live Oak; daughter,
Jill McMullen Elmore (son-in-
law Gary) of Tallahassee,
granddaughter, Amy N. El-
more of Tallahassee; grand-
son, Kirk B. Elmore of Tampa;
niece, Mavis Brooks Powell
of Jacksonville; nephews Ken
Towe of Tennile, Ga., Rolf
Towe (Neely) of Greenwich,
Conn. and Teri Towe of Wick-
ford, R.I.
She was preceded in death
by her son, Michael Gerald
(Geri) McMullen, sisters,
Mairs McCarn Brooks of
Jacksonville, Elizabeth Mc-
Cam Towe of Greenwich,
Conn. and parents, Charles Er-
win and Carrow Dowling Mc-

ple in the South as Live Oak's
most prolific gardener whose
yard was always a showplace
all year, died at her home
March 30 after a long illness.
"Miss Kitty," as most people
knew her, had over the years
developed her home's garden
to such an extent of beauty that
people would drive from miles
and miles away just to see
what she had blooming.
At Christmas, her home's
exterior would be lighted with
special effects and decorations
and her very special angel
would delight all who drove
by. She was named by the city
of Live Oak as, Mrs. Christmas
for her beautiful Christmas
decorations that kept long
lines of cars driving by her

While her gardening ability

tragedy, Miss Kitty once said.
After moving to their home
where very little grew, the Mc-
Mullen's son, Geri, was killed
in a tragic accident while rid-
ing his bicycle. Although she
seldom spoke about the
tragedy, Miss Kitty once con-
fided that for years after that
she never slept and finally de-
': cided she had to have some-
' thing to do to take her mind off
the loss of her son. Gardening
became her escape, her chance
,. to give to others. Thus was

nurture beauty from bare roots
and bulbs and a packet of
seeds.
Kitty McMullen moved to
Live Oak in 1935 after mar-
rying J. L. "Mac" McMullen
of Live Oak and the couple
settled in to raise their fami-
ly. Later, when daughter Jill
McMullen Elmore was
grown, she and her husband,
Gary gave Miss Kitty and
Mr. J. L. two wonderful
grandchildren whom the Mc-
Mullens adored.
While Miss Kitty loved
everything about being a
homemaker, she also was in-
volvied in many civic organiza-
tions in the community to
serve others. She never met a
stranger and often would send
a small gift, mail a card or just
make a phone call to let some-
one know how special they
were to her. Her beautiful
southern accent was unmistak-
able when the phone would
ring.

this is the first real recognition
I have ever received, and it is a
real honor," said Hannon upon
hearing the news of her
statewide win. "Especially
with a picture that shows our
emergency personnel doing
what they do best, .saving
lives," she added.
Democrat reporter Janet
Schrader-Seccafico, a long;
time award-winner at the De-
mocrat, racks up two more
wins. This time Schrader-Sec.
cafico won in the Feature Pic-
ture and Religion Writing cat-
egories. Schrader-Seccafico
was named a winner in the
Feature Picture category for
her captivating photo of a
child kissing an Alpaca enti-
tled Alpaca smooch. The pho-
to came about while this pho-
tographer was interviewing a
family of Alpaca owners. �
Schrader-Seccafico also
won in Religion Writing fo&
her article on the perils of 'a
McAlpin missionary who min-
isters in Haiti. The article, en-
titled "Haitian missionary es-
capes the revolution,." de-
scribes the missionary's har-
rowing escape from the Hait-
ian revolution little more than
a year ago and his continued
work against voodooism, thq
predominant religion in Haiti.:
"Working for the Suwannee
Democrat has allowed me .t6
develop talents and skills I nev,;
er knew I had. The Democrat
also gives me the opportunity,
to compete in this contest, and
win. It's a huge thrill to see my'
name and the Suwannee Demo-'
crat in the winner's column for
the Florida Press Awards,"
Schrader-Seccafico said.
The finalists in each catego-,
ry have been named. How they
placed will not be known until,
June 11 when the awards will
be presented at the annual
2005 FPA/FSNE Convention'
in Key West. The Democrat'
will be represented at the;
awards ceremonies.
Regardless of the place:
ment, the newspaper and all
three editorial staff members
are winners. They have earned,
the respect of their peers
across Florida by being named,
winners in the 2004 Better
Weekly Newspaper Contest.

Glucose testing important for gestational diabetes
Seven months into her pregnancy, a woman is told by her doctor that
she has gestational diabetes. Should she be concerned? Absolutely.
Affecting about 4% of pregnant women in the late stages of pregnancy,
gestational diabetes can hurt the unborn child if untreated or poorly
controlled. Too much blood glucose gets to the baby causing increased
insulin production and consequently fat storage. Macrosomia (also
known as "fat baby") can lead to shoulder damage during birth and
breathing problems. In addition, the baby will often have trouble in the
transition from the sugar-rich environment of the womb to the outside
world. Very low blood sugar results are found in ne% born babies be-
cause they have become accustomed to dealing \ ith large amounts of
sugar daily.
Treatment involves keeping your blood sugar as close to that of
pregnant women without gestational diabetes. Daily glucose testing and
insulin injections are equally as important as special meal plans and
scheduled physical activity. Talk to your pharmacist about daily glucose
testing and insulin injections if you or a family member has questions
about I-hi condition . ... i-^5 - f

' The Saturday of Easter week-
end found many Wellborn folks
gathering at the Quality Inn in
Lake City. Patricia Redmon
King just retired from Jackson
Memorial Hospital in Miami
and she was surprised to be one
of the reasons for the gathering.
She is the oldest of 10 children
so there are many relatives, and
also many friends, who were
glad to celebrate together.
Priscilla Redmon Williamson
estimated 150 came. Three mil-
itary family members were hon-
ored at that same party and were
added reason to give thanks and
celebrate together. They are
SFC Sandra Chapmon, United
States Army stationed in Ft.
Lauderdale, Sgt. Valerie Tamika
Jones, United States Army on
three weeks leave from active
duty in Iraq and BM2 Bruce D.
Jones United States Navy cur-
gently stationed in Jacksonville.
Sheriff Tony Cameron and
our Wellborn deputies, Bryan
Barrs, Scott Gamble, Tommy
Roberts and Lee Willis were the
featured celebrities in Wellborn
on the final Thursday March
meeting of the Wellborn Neigh-
borhood Watch (WNW). Sixty-
four signed in at the Blake
Lowe building and who knows
how many, besides me, could
not get there because of washed
out driveways. The rain deluged
here mid-week and inconve-
nienced many homeowners.


County Commissioner Billy
Maxwell is a regular at the
WNW and this time he and his
pretty wife helped with the
questions and answers time.
People met Ron Colvin who is
our liaison with the Sheriff's of-
fice. Wellborn folks gave sug-
gestions to the Sheriff and
deputies and the exchange was
lively and healthy. WNW coor-
dinator Russell Smith was all
smiles when the donuts and the
people came out so nearly even.
Smith is grateful to have shared
his own vision of what a Well-
born Neighborhood Watch
group can do in our hometown.
Stay tuned for future WNW ac-
tivity.
First Saturday Blueberry Pan-
cake Breakfast was the next
good happening in Wellborn
that I could not get to on ac-
count of the water flowing
across Bailey Road (29th Rd.)
which made a scary trench.
Cooks this month were Bonnie
and George Scott who kind of
hoped that it would be canceled
as did Barbara and Joe Bartlett
and Beanie Brooks and Don
Bridge. The day before George
Scott had rescued a neighbor
who did not heed the "Turn
Around Don't Drown" warning
George pulled him out of the
ditch by tractor. The Wellborn
Community Association
(WCA) workers have devel-
oped a "The Show Must Go

On" mentality and it really paid
off April 2. More folks came
than ever before and the dollar
profit rose accordingly. Bud
and Carol Johnson were the
welcomers and they reported
103 tickets sold.
Easter vacation has come and
gone for the school set in Well-
born. Melinda Hvojnik took her
day off from Penney's Hair
Styling salon and bought a year-
ly pass at Wild Adventures for
herself and her kids. "We'll go
five or six times and maybe
more," she explains and she
continues, "We don't do sum-
mer camp, although this is the
summer for my second child to
go to church camp with Well-
born Baptist kids her age. The
oldest one went last year. Wild
Adventures season tickets gives
us reasonable family fun day-
trips all summer long." Mildred
Dancy's grandson Josh Dancy
was home for Easter. He is Ker-
ry and Sabrina Dancy's son who
is stationed in Alaska. Mildred
reminisces well about how she
and Sam raised five children in
Wellborn and now she is enjoy-
ing family gatherings centered
on the grandchildren.
Linda Young was a grandma
visited by her red-headed
daughter's children and they did
a trip to the Butterflies at the
Natural History Museum in
Gainesville.
Pastor Tim Plant, wife Terri
* and Rachael and Alex got some
sun and beach while visiting in
Tampa. Lawrence Whitmore
meanwhile in Wellborn was
caregiver for their dog Sox.
Dusty Miller gave the sermon
for vacationing Pastor Tim.
Dusty read a love note of
thanksgiving from his across the
street neighbor, Betty Swain.
We rejoiced and promised con-
tinuing prayers covering her
treatment.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: Can my allergies have an impact on
my dental health?
A: The answer is "yes," especially if you
take antihistamines for relief.
Antihistamines can sometimes cause a
dry mouth. That means saliva is not able
to wash away food particles, which in
turn can cause a buildup of plaque and,
eventually, cavities. If you use an
antihistamine, your dentist will likely
recommend that you drink plenty of
water or suck on sugar-free candy to
keep your mouth moist.
Another concern is that if you are
allergic to one substance, you may be
allergic, or become allergic, to other
things. It's important for your dentist to
know of any allergies you have,
particularly if you are allergic to any
drugs. Penicillin, for instance, is a drug
to which many people are allergic.
Substitutes are available. Allergic
reactions can be mild-itchy eyes and a
runny nose, for instance. They can also
be severe, however. So discuss your
allergies with your dentist.

O'Reily USCS set for new venue at South Georgia Motorsports Park on April 9


The O'Reilly United Sprint
Car Series Asphalt Thunder
Tour will visit a new venue on
Saturday night, April 9 at South
Georgia Motorsports Park in
Cecil, GA. The half-mile paved
oval is one of the newest tracks
in the country, and three O'Reil-
ly USCS drivers recently got a
sneak preview of the facility.
The 2000 O'Reilly USCS Na-
tional Champion and 2003
O'Reilly Asphalt Thunder
Champion Kenny Adams of
Malabar, FL took some practice
laps along with his teammate
and stepson Bryn Gohn of Mal-
abar, FL, and Matt Tiffany of
Daytona, FL. Both 18-year-old
Gohn and 16-year-old Tiffany
are 2005 Reilly USCS Rookie of
the Year candidates.
Adams gave the track high
marks after putting his Goodson
Farms Shaw/Ott through its
paces at SGMP.
"The track is smooth, fast, and
I think it's going to be real
racy," Adams said. "It's like a
big Lanier National Speedway
in Braselton, GA, and I know
the fans are going to see some
great racing."
The competition is tight
among the O'Reilly USCS As-
phalt Thunder drivers, as they
prepare for round five of the 65-
race season. Pound-for-pound,


the winged outlaw sprint cars of
the O'Reilly USCS are the most
powerful short track racing cars
in the world, and should easily
turn the fastest speeds ever
recorded at SGMP.
The cars weigh 1,300 pounds
and are powered by 700 horse-
power fuel-injected, methanol-
buming V-8 engines. The wings
on the top of the race cars pro-
vide maximum down force to
increase comer speeds.
It takes a rare breed of race car
driver to control a winged out-
law sprint car. The O'Reilly
USCS has an interesting mix of
seasoned veterans with impres-
sive resumes, and the Speed-
Mart "Young Guns," a talented
group of drivers under the age of
25 full of desire and courage.
After the first three O'Reilly
USCS Asphalt Thunder Tour
events, three drivers shared the
point lead. Four-time and de-
fending O'Reilly USCS Na-
tional Champion and defending
Asphalt Thunder Champion Ter-
ry Gray of Bartlett, TN shared
the point lead with third-genera-
tion driver Wayne
Reutimann Jr. of Zephyrhills
and 18-year-old Ryan Myers of
Eldorado, OH.
Gray was still looking for his
first win of the season, but as his
previous series titles have


shown, his consistency has been
the key to his success.
Reutimann has one win to
help his drive to the top of the
point list. Known as a dirt track
specialist, Myers is a newcomer
to pavement racing, but has a
couple of second-place finishes
in his first three asphalt runs.
The series winningest driver
Adams shares the fourth spot
with a rookie driver with a well-
known name in sprint car racing.
Adams won the season opener
in Pensacola, but the second race
in Mobile, AL was won by 16-
year-old third generation driver
Kevin Swindell of Bartlett, TN.
Swindell, who has also set
two new track records this sea-
son, is the son of three-time na-
tional sprint car champion Sam-
my Swindell.
Last year's O'Reilly USCS
national championship runner-
up 18-year-old Danny Martin
Jr. of Sarasota is tied for the sixth
spot in the points chase with vet-
eran Brian Thomas of Auburn,
GA. Tiffany is in the eighth spot
followed by 40-year sprint car
veteran Wayne Reutimann Sr. of
Zephyrhills, Gohn rounds out
the top ten, with 18-year-old
Stephen Darvalics of Venice just
a few points behind.
Along with the O'Reilly

Outdoors-Woman workshop April 8-10 has vacancies


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) still has
room for women who want
to spend a weekend learning
a variety of outdoor skills
April 8-10.
The FWC invites women,
18 and older, to attend the
Becoming an Outdoors-
Woman camp to improve
their outdoor skills and enjoy
a few recreational activities.
In four, four-hour sessions,
workshops teach skills asso-
ciated with hunting, fishing
and other outdoor recreation


at all levels of physical ac-
tivity.
The Becoming an Out-
doors-Woman program of-
fers a fun and supportive at-
mosphere to experiment and
enjoy the camaraderie of
others who want to learn
about Florida's great out-
doors. Although it is de-
signed with women in mind,
the camp is open to anyone
who wants to learn in a com-
fortable, non-threatening,
non-competitive, hands-on
atmosphere. The camp's in-
structors strive to make par-


ticipants feel at ease.
"Patience is the secret to
the success of our Becoming
an Outdoors-Woman pro-
gram," said Lynne Hawk, di-
rector of the program. "Our
instructors are here to guide
people through the activities.
There is no intimidation."
The workshop will take
place at Camp Wallwood on
Lake Talquin near Tallahas-
see. Sessions will begin Fri-
day morning and end Sunday
afternoon.
The cost is $175, however
a limited number of partial


scholarships are available for
low-income participants,
single parents and college
students. The workshop is
limited to 100 participants
on a first-come, first-served
basis.
Session topics include:
* Introduction to Pan-Fish-

Register now for summer camp in the Ocala National Forest


Do your children long to
spend their summer days in
the great outdoors? Would
they love the chance to learn
about wildlife from the ex-
perts, or swim, hike and ca-
noe with other children their
age?
Then it's time to sign them
up for the Ocala Outdoor
Adventure Camp at the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
(FWC) Ocala Conservation
Center in the Ocala National
Forest.
The summer camp is for
boys and girls ages 10-15
and is based on wildlife con-
servation, firearm safety and
outdoor skills. This year the
camp offers five one-week
sessions with all-new pro-
grams beginning June 19.
The primary goal of the
camp program is to provide
children with the necessary
skills and knowledge to be-
come better sportsmen and
women, while instilling an


awareness of firearm safety,
conservation and wildlife
stewardship. In addition,
campers will fish, canoe,
swim, hike and participate in
many other outdoor activi-
ties.
Tuition is $295 per camper
per week and includes lodg-
ing, food, program materials
and instruction for each ses-
sion. Each week-long ses-
sion is divided into four
groups based on their indi-
vidual focus: Wild about
Wildlife, Wet and Wildlife,
Hunting and Hunter Safety
and Expedition. All pro-
grams are new or signifi-
cantly revised in format and
scope from previous years.
"Campers in Wild about
Wildlife, a new program this
year, will have a chance to
go wild exploring nature,"
said Cardinal Collins, direc-
tor of the Ocala Conserva-
tion Center. "They will
learn about wildlife manage-
ment and enjoy many camp


activities including basic
wilderness survival and field
first-aid training, canoeing,
fishing, hiking, shooting
sports and other hands-on
outdoor programs."
For those who simply
can't resist the water, the
camp offers another new
program, aptly named Wet
and Wildlife.
"This program gets into
the fun of fishing, marine
ecology and boating safety.
In addition to the traditional
camp activities already de-
scribed above, Wet and
Wildlife campers will have
the opportunity to become
certified in the FWC's
Boater Safety Course,"
Collins said.
For the intermediate level
camper, the camp offers the
Hunting and Hunter Safety
group.
"These campers will learn
about wild game and its
habitats, and apply this
knowledge to developing


ethical hunting skills. Then
they will have a chance to
get their hunter safety certi-
fication. They will receive
firearm safety as well "as
shotgun and rifle shooting
instruction from National
Rifle Association-(NRA)
certified range safety offi-
cers. And, they will receive
archery instruction from Na-
tional Archery Association-
certified instructors, while
participating in numerous
shooting range activities.
They will also have a chance
to participate in many camp
activities including basic
wilderness survival and field
first-aid training, canoeing,
fishing, hiking, and other
hands-on outdoor pro-
grams," Collins said.
The final program is for
advanced campers who have
already completed a hunter
safety course.
"The Expedition group is
designed for the camper with
an avid interest in the out-

made two arrests for hunting
turkey over bait. Jordan en-
countered a male subject
who had just shot a turkey
and was coming out of the
woods. The subject attempt-
ed to show Jordan where he
had shot the turkey, but Jor-
dan saw no signs of turkey in
the area, or any sign of a
hunt earlier that morning.
Jordan continued to search
the area and found a ground
blind, a feeder and fresh
feathers on the ground. The
blind was approximately 30
yards from the feeder and the
feathers were approximately
10-15 yards from the feeder.
Jordan questioned the
hunter, who admitted to ly-
ing about where he had
killed the turkey. The hunter
admitted that the blind was
his and it was also where .he
had killed the turkey. Jordan
charged the hunter with
hunting turkey over bait.
Officer Jordan went to a
second bait sight where he
found a vehicle parked 'on
the side of the road and
could hear someone calling
for turkey nearby. Jordan
went to the area of the turkey
call and observed a man and
his son calling turkey over
some hand-thrown corn. Jor-
dan identified himself and
walked to the area where the
two were hunting. The man
admitted to throwing out the
corn to attract the turkey.
Jordan issued the man a cita-
tion for hunting turkey over
bait.
Officer Jordan also re-
ceived a compliant of a tres-
pass hunter hunting on pri-
vate hunt club land. Jordan
arrived on scene and ques-
tioned the trespasser about
where he was hunting and if
he knew it was private land.
The hunter admitted to
knowing it was a private
hunt club and showed Jordan
where he was hunting and


where he had set out his de-
coys. Jordan charged the
hunter with trespassing on
posted property.
Office ' Zachary '"Clark
made two arrests for hunting
turkey over bait. After arriv-
ing at a known bait site, he
observed two parked vehi-
cles, several turkey decoys
and a jake that had been tak-
en prior to his arrival. Clark
heard some turkeys calling
in the woods, as well as
someone calling turkey. A
short time later, Clark saw a
hunter walking out of the
woods to the parked vehi-
cles. Clark confronted the
hunter and shortly after, an-
other hunter emerged from
the woods. Both showed
Clark where they had been
hunting turkey and Clark no-
ticed corn and bird seed on
the ground. Clark asked the
hunters about the bait and
the two admitted to hunting
turkey over the bait. Both
subjects were charged with
hunting turkey over
bait. One of the two hunters
was issued a warning for no
turkey stamp.

CITRUS COUNTY
March 23, Officers Laird
Canfield and John Jones re-
sponded to a single vessel
airboat accident in the Ho-
mosassa River. The accident
involved a commercial air-
boat river tour business. The
vessel ran into the river bank
causing the airboat to take
on water and partially
sink. Eight passengers re-
ceived minor injuries includ-
ing lacerations and abra-
sions. The vessel captain
was interviewed along with
the witnesses. The U.S.
Coast Guard became in-
volved due to licensing is-
sues with an inspected ves-
sel. A blood sample from the
operator was sent to the
FDLE lab for analysis. The
vessel was retrieved
on Wednesday showing a
significant breach in" its hull
seam. The investigation will


be completed pending
the lab results.

HAMILTON COUNTY
March 26, Officer Dwain
Mobley began checking sev-
eral baited sites that he and
Officer Spence Yon had
found. Mobley approached
the first site and observed
two individuals calling and
hunting turkeys. After issu-


ing the citations for hunting
over a baited area, Mobley
proceeded approximately
two miles to the next loca-
tion. "The turkey calling
sounds emanating from this
blind seemed especially con-
vincing, almost life-like. The

making unusual movements
in the blind. Upon approach-
ing the blind, the reason be-
came apparent. One of the
hunters was using a recorded
game and turkey call. The
system was complete with

er. The one individual was
issued citations for hunting
over a baited area and utiliz-
ing recorded game calls. The
second individual was issued
a citation for hunting turkey

On September 20, 'f'il I
purchased one cow and one
heifer from Andy Carter
from Lake Park, Ga.
On January 2, 2003. I had
the Angus Cross cow and the
Angus cross heifer artificial-
ly inseminated. I chose a
sire by the name of Heat-
seeker (ChiXShortX-
MaXAngus) for my cow. I
went with the recommenda-
tion made by Scott Randall
from Southeastern Semen
for my heifer, using Road-
runner a black Limousine
that has been proven for
years to produce smaller live
first calves.
On September 6, 2003 my
heifer gave birth to a healthy
bull calf. Only nine days
later my cow gave birth to a
large healthy bull calf. What
are the chances of that hap-
pening? I had not one, but
two bull calves to pick from

chose the Heatseeker calf
because he had more bone
than the Roadrunner calf.
I sold the Roadrunner calf
to Tori Lyons from Mayo
and she showed him at the
North Florida Livestock
Show and Sale in Madison.
On February 21, 2005. He
weighed in at 1240 pounds
and ended up placing second
in his class to the Grand
Champion steer.
This year was an extra
special year for me to show
at the Suwannee Valley
Youth Livestock Show and
Sale because I was showing
a homegrown steer. On
Thursday, March 17, "Black
Jack" #21 weighed in at
1234 pounds. There were a
total of 10 classes and we
were in the seventh class. I
was anxious to see how well
he would place in his class
and to hear the remarks that
the judge had to make about


steer with a lot of good qual-
ities about him but the first
place steer was wider across
the back. Next, was the
Homegrown Grand Champi-

only eight were homegrown.
The judge praised us all on a
job well done and that we
should all be proud to have
raised such top quality
steers. Then he announced
me and Black Jack as the
winners of the Homegrown

-I was very excited to have
won this award because it
was a lot more complex than
I ever imagined it would be.
I needed to get a show qual-
ity steer born at the right
time of year to be able to
show at the SVYLSS.
In October 2003, I pur-
chased four more heifers to
add to my herd. I searched
for just the right sire to have
each one artificially insemi-
nated to. I had that done the *

Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
has launched a historic pilot
project with the Seminole
Tribe of Florida that will
track cattle from birth to gro-
cery stores. Bronson will
meet with representatives of
the Seminole Tribe at
Brighton Indian Reservation
near the town of Okeechobee
for a demonstration of the
project on Thursday, March
31, 2005, at 11 a.m.
The project involves
putting electronic tags on
about 10,000 head of cattle
so they can be traced
throughout their lifetime.
The tags will allow officials
to trace the movement of any
animal diagnosed with cer-
tain communicable diseases,
including BSE and foot-and-
mouth, disease within 48
hours.
The United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture (USDA)
stepped up its efforts to cre-
ate a national animal identi-
fication program when a cow
in Washington state tested
positive in December 2003
for bovine spongiform en-
cephalopathy (BSE), widely
referred to as "mad cow dis-
ease." The cow was traced
back to Canada and no addi-


itive for BSE in the United
States since then. However,
a lack of a national animal
ID system made it more dif-
ficult to quickly determine
exactly where the infected
cow had been to find out if
other cows in herds where
the animal had been located
were also infected; The
USDA has been working
with various states on pilot
animal ID projects which
will be used to assist in de-
veloping a national system.
"I appreciate the willing-


nole Tribe of Florida to work
with us on this very impor-
tant project," Bronson said.
"We are hopeful that this pi-
lot program will enable us to
work through any potential
problems or shortcomings in
the ID system so that it be-
comes a premier example of
a program that achieves its
goal while not being burden-
some on cattle ranchers."
The project is being fund-
ed by a USDA grant of
$95,600. The Florida.De-
partment of Agriculture and


pated in a cooperative train-
ing program for Seminole
Tribe herd owners in mid-
February to introduce the
new ID system.
Proponents of animal
identification systems say
they will improve consumer
confidence in the domestic,
market and assist in main-
taining and opening interna-
tional markets for U.S. beef.
Animal identification is vol-
untary but may be required
by the federal government
by 2007.


First Equine West Nile


virus case reported;

Bronson urges vaccinations for horses

and precautions for people


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
says this year's first case of
Eastern Equine Encephalitis
has been reported in Union
County and he is urging
horse owners to have their
animals vaccinated against
mosquito-borne illnesses.
The three-year-old horse
was seen by a local veteri-


narian who suspected East-
ern Equine En-
cephalomyelitis (EEE). On
March 22, lab testing con-
firmed the diagnosis of EEE.
The testing also revealed an
exposure to the West Nile
Virus (WNV), which may
have complicated the horse's
condition.
"Horse owners have done
a good job in getting their


animals properly vaccinated
over the past few years and
we have seen a significant
drop in the number of equine
WNV cases," Bronson said.
"But it is critical that we
don't become complacent.
Mosquito season is upon us
and the chances of contract-
ing these diseases have, of
course, increased. Horse
owners are reminded that
their animals' vaccinations
must be up to date, including
the necessary booster shots."
In 2004, there were 48 re-
ported cases of EEE in hors-
es and six confirmed equine
WNV cases. That compares
with nearly 500 reported
WNV cases in 2002. A vac-
cination against WNV be-
came available in the sum-
mer of 2001 and EEE vacci-
nations have been around for
years.
Bronson is also urging
Florida residents and visitors
to take precautions against
mosquito bites to reduce the
chance of contracting mos-
quito-borne illnesses. Peo-
ple are urged to avoid being
outdoors at dusk and dawn
when mosquitoes are most
active and, if they must be
outside at those times, to
wear loose-fitting, long-
sleeve shirts and pants. Peo-
ple are also urged to use
mosquito repellent contain-
ing DEET. Residents should
'take steps to eliminate mos-
quito breeding grounds on
their property by removing
standing water from bird-
baths, kiddie pools, old tires
and other items where water
can accumulate.

State agencies work together to close the door on "backdoor"seafood sales


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) is stepping
up efforts to keep the Sun-
shine State's seafood mar-
kets safe and fair. As part of
"Operation No More Back
Door," the agency has part-
nered with the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture and
Consumer Services (DACS)
and the Florida Department
of Business and Professional
Regulation (DBPR) to target
people and businesses ille-
gally buying, selling, pack-
aging or mislabeling seafood
products.
"For years, FWC officers
have worked on the illegal
backdoor sales of regulated
fish to ensure only licensed
fishermen are selling prod-
ucts," said Lt. Col. Don Hol-
way, FWC deputy director of
law enforcement. "Partner-
ing with other agencies re-
sponsible for regulating the
wholesomeness and integrity
of seafood products makes
sense for businesses and con-
sumers."
Snagging fishermen or
dealers illegally selling or
buying their catch often re-
quires covert operations in-
volving long hours and addi-
tional manpower. FWC in-
vestigators may pose . as
recreational fishermen and
attempt to make a backdoor
sale or purchase and perform
DNA testing on fishery prod-
ucts suspected to be misla-
beled. During these covert
investigations, FWC officers
can uncover violations that
are outside the agency's
purview, so they will pass
that information on to DACS
or DBPR for action.
"We are confident this
partnership with other agen-
cies will prove to be an ef-
fective use of state resources
that will benefit our Florida
fifsheites : aid& 'c qi - in mie rs,'
said Maj. Gary Strickland,
FWC statewide investiga-
tions coordinator. "This will
ensure commercial fisher-
men receive a fair market
price for their products and
consumers get what they pay
for."
DACS is sending food
safety inspectors to super-
markets, fish stores and other
establishments that sell fish
on the retail level to check
delivery boxes for accurate
labeling of fish species, ac-
cording to Florida Agricul-
ture Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson. Samples can be
tested for species identifica-
tion at the department's food
lab or at FWC's facility.
At the same time, Bron-
son's Office of Agricultural
Law Enforcement, which in-
spects commercial vehicles
entering or leaving Florida,
has scanned documents in-
volving more than 500 ship-
ments of seafood transported
through DACS's interdiction
stations at 1-10, 1-75 and I-
95. The documents are ac-
cessible to the FWC and pro-
vide a snapshot of the
seafood entering and leaving
Florida.
DBPR reminds its li-
censees that all food for sale
must be obtained from
sources that comply with the
law.
"DBPR verifies that food
is obtained from the proper
sources during the inspection
of food service establish-
ments," said Geoff Luebke-
mann, DBPR's Division of
Hotels and Restaurants di-
rector. "Operators purchas-
ing seafood products from
unlicensed individuals, re-
tailers or wholesalers are in
violation of Florida law."
Seafood products must be


commercially and legally
caught or harvested, and pur-
chased only from licensed
commercial fishermen or
certified aquaculturists.
Recreationally caught or har-
vested shellfish may not be
received for sale or service
by food service establish-
ments.


Operators should also be
particularly attentive to food
descriptions. Any means
used to promote or advertise
food items for sale - includ-
ing menus, "blackboard" or
"specials" listings - must be
accurate and truthful.
Seafood species cannot


legally be substituted for
one another and must be ac-
curately and truthfully pro-
moted and sold using the
correct species name.
"Failure to accurately and
truthfully offer food items
for sale, such as undisclosed
substitution of one type of


fish for another, also vio-
lates Florida law," Luebke-
mann said.
Stone crab season, from
October 15 through May 14
each year, also provides an
opportunity to be alert for
unlawful sources, labeling
or misrepresentation. Only


two. species of stone crab -
Menippi adina and Menippi
mercenaria and their hy-
brids, harvested in Florida,
other Gulf Coast states and
the Caribbean - may be la-
beled "stone crab."
Operation No More Back
Door began in mid-February


and will continue for several
months.
Anyone with information
about these or any other re-
source violations can call
Wildlife Alert at (888) 404-
FWCC or visit MyFWC.com
to report them. They may
qualify for rewards.


A study released today by
the Florida Forestry Associ-
ation and the University of
Florida Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences re-
veals that Florida's forests
and forest products industry
are among the largest agri-
cultural commodities in the
state, with total output above
$16.5 billion. The findings
were announced by Agricul-
ture Commissioner Charles
Bronson and the Florida
Forestry Association.
Titled, "Economic Impacts
of the Forest Industry in
Florida," the landmark study
also shows that the industry
supplied Florida with over


133,000 jobs in 2003. In ad-
dition to providing jobs,
Florida's forestry communi-
ty manages forests that pro-
vide wildlife habitat, clean
air, clean water, recreation
and more than 5,000 prod-
ucts that we use daily.
"The report confirms what
those in the agricultural in-
dustry have always known -
that our forests and products
derived from them have a
tremendous economic bene-
fit to Florida," Bronson said.
"And the recreational value
they provide, as well as the
clean water and air, make the
millions of acres of forests
in Florida one of the state's


most treasured resources."
The forest industry contin-
ues to grow in Florida. Yes-
terday, Georgia-Pacific Cor-
poration announced it ex-
pects to open its newest ori-
ented strand board (OSB)
mill in Hosford, Florida, this
summer. The operation will
employ more than 100 peo-
ple and will bring more rev-
enue to Liberty County
through taxes, utilities and
local businesses. Keeping a
healthy forest products mar-
ket is essential to keeping
Florida green. Florida's for-
est industry constantly
works to sustain the state's
forests, ensuring that the re-

"The Nature Conservancy
has always recognized the
important ecological value
of Florida's managed
forests," said Vicki
Tschinkel, The Nature
Conservancy's Florida di-
rector. "This study confirms
the economic benefits of
those ecological values,
which are best maintained
by preserving productive
forest lands for future gener-
ations."
Forests also have a signif-
icant impact on tourism and
recreation in Florida. Over
half of all Florida visitors


engage in some type of na-
ture-based activity during
their visits, with most of
these activities taking place
in Florida's forests. Outdoor
recreation in Florida has 'a
total economic impact of
over $22 billion, with $6 bil-
lion directly tied to forest-

SFishing Report


By Pat McGriff One More
Cast guide service
Trout fishing has been
great, at least considering the
conditions, for me since
Monday.
Bert Deener and his Dad,
Herbert, of Waycross,
Ga.and I'went fishing Mon-
day, when we had two reds
and 15 trout, which we
caught on Assassin Glow
/Chartreuse Tail Eels under a
Cajun Thunder. Bert caught
the reds on Precision Tack-
le's New Thunder-Spins. We
fished 2.5-3 f4t of water in
15-20 knot wi}Vds.
Tuesday, we also had 15
trout and two reds. This time
I caught a red on a Thunder-
Spin and so did Bert. Herbert
caught 10 of the trout on As-
sassin Limetreuse eels under
a Cajun. The W-i-n-d was do-
ing close to 25 knots when
we came in. Herbert not only
caught the most, he had a 27-
incher which weighed 5.7
pounds!
John and Timothy Bell of
Moultrie, Ga. had their limit
of trout Sunday with ,a 24-
inch trout, their largest. This
pair used Cordell Redfins in
less than two feet of water to
land their string.
Ed and Terry Revels of
Adel, Ga. had their 10 trout
Sunday using plugs and live
shrimp in 2-3 feet of water
Lester Thomas of Cedar Is-
land, Ga. had a limit of trout
Saltwater Assassin electric
chicken under a Cajun Thun-
der.
Andrew Bass and Drew
&Bass Live Oak had 10 trout
also using electric chicken in


five feet of water.
Offshore Report:
Burt, Brenda and Hunter
Fletcher of Valdosta, Ga had
nine grouper Saturday
trolling Mann's Stretch Thir-
ty Plus plugs in 53 feet of
water.
The Henderson and Bur-
nette families of Madison
had 22 grouper, 106
sheepshead, 100 pink mouth
grunt and four black bass on
cigar minnows and shrimp on
the Steinhatchee reef and off-
shore in 65 feet of water.
Joey and Trey Sands of
Valdosta, Ga. had six
grouper and one A.J. fishing
Saturday at the crane using
live pinfish.
Steve Hendly and Jed
Allen with Mike Farmer, all
of Valdosta, Ga. had grouper,
triggerfish, black sea bass all
caught on dead cigar min-
nows and Spanish Sardines
in 45 feet of water.
Shannon Millinor and Ron
Hedges of Perry had six
keeper grouper from 45-56
feet of water using pinfish,
squid, sardines and you-
name-it.
TGIF charters Captain Ed-
ward Thomas had the Remily
family of South Dakota out
and they brought in eight
grouper, four amberjack.
Rusty Smith, Bubba Bur-
nette and Steve Bradford, of
Madison had 15 grouper to
15 pounds from 54 feet of
water Saturday, March 19.
Torey and Eric Wingate
had four grouper using squid
and Thread Herring in A5 feet
of water?......sounds like 45
feet of water on squid again.


PCSports seeking memorabilia

Spring is officially here!
As local residents dive into
their spring cleaning pro-
jects they can help Florida

years of football, communi-
ty and service in central

FCSports is seeking dona-

bilia collected over the last
59 years at the organiza-
tion's various events includ-
ing the original Tangerine
Bowl and Florida Citrus
Bowl games (today known
as the Capital One Bowl).
In addition, items from an-
cillary events surrounding
the bowl game will be wel-
comed as well. Those events
include parades, road races,
hot air balloon races, sailing
regattas as well as basket-
ball, golf and tennis tourna-
ments.
"We're looking for just


about any souvenirs people
have collected over the
years - shirts, buttons, pins,
old Zonies hats - you name
it, we are looking for it,"
said FCSports 60th Celebra-
tion staff coordinator Janelle
Burch.
Historical items can be
donated or loaned for the
year-long celebration. Those
wishing to donate or loan
items can bring them to the
Florida Citrus Sports office

Marlins' pitcher

seeks a godly life
-. "Still, there are things
you come across" as a
baseball player, especially
on the road, he said.
"You've got to be care-
fut."


Todd Jones
By Tim Ellsworth
Baptist Press
Sports columnist
JUPITER, Fla. (BP)-His
teammates may be out after
games going to popular night
spots, but you won't find
Florida Marlins pitcher Todd
Jones there.
That's because Jones
knows how serious of a
temptation women can be.
*- "I don't puttyself in those
situations because I don't
know how I'd react," Jones
said. "I just try to stay out of
the situations - stay in my
room, play a lot of Xbox, eat
a lot of room service. That's
how I live, because I love my
family. I love my wife, and I
don't want to do anything
stupid."
The measures Jones takes
don't come just from a devo-
tion to his family. They also
cbme from his devotion to
God. As a Major League
Baseball player, Jones wants
to do his best to live a godly
life, and he knows sexual sins
don't have any place there.
"Like any other guy,
Women are probably the
biggest stumbling block," he
said.
Jones and his wife have
been married for 15 years,
and Jones has remained faith-
ful to her.


. Jones is in his first sea-
1 son with the Marlins. He
L spent most of last year
with the Reds before being
traded to Philadelphia late
in the season. He's already
established himself as one
of the team's chapel and
Bible study leaders.
He says his role as a
Christian and a baseball
player isn't really that dif-
ferent from anyone in an-
other walk of life, but adds
that his status may give
him a greater opportunity to
talk to others about his be-
liefs.
"We have a better opportu-
nity to witness to people,"
Jones said. "We can witness
to the public because of the
fact that I play with pretty
cool people, people like Car-
los Delgado and Dontrelle
Willis. I can get to the public
like that, by being a profes-
sional ballplayer."
Jones can also witness to
his teammates because of the
sheer amount of time he
spends around them during
the season. They can see how
he lives his life and where his
priorities are, he said.
This season, especially,
Jones has made a commit-
ment to be more accountable
for everything he does -
from how he talks to how he
handles adversity on and off
the field. Jones isn't one to
go around preaching to his
teammates on a regular basis,
but he's hopeful that his ac-
tions will draw them to him
and give him the opportunity
to talk about Christ.
"The people that you're
going to have the opportunity
to influence are going to
come to you," he said.
"They're going to ask you.
They're going to see a differ-
ence in me."

Floridians to vote for the state's "Most Congested Road"

- FBT launches public awareness effort to "Get Florida Moving" -


Florida's worst roads will be
revealed in a new on-line sur-
vey that allows citizens to vote
for the state's "Most Congest-
ed Road." Though not a scien-
tific study, the contest will
give citizens a chance to ex-
press their concerns in a mean-
ingful way. The effort also will
provide background informa-
tion for "Get Florida Moving,"
a campaign developed by
Floridian's for Better Trans-
portation (FBT) designed to
focus attention on Florida's se-
rious and growing transporta-
tion problems.
The campaign's primary
component is an interactive
Website, www.GetFlori-
daMoving.org, that enables


drivers to share their own ex-
periences and post photos of
poor traffic conditions. The
Web site was created with the
goals of educating Floridians
about road safety issues and
encouraging drivers to let their
legislators know how this
growing problem is affecting
their daily lives. Motorists can
also stay informed by signing
up to receive e-mail updates
and reading the latest trans-
portation news.
"In order to end the gridlock
on our roads, we first must end
the political gridlock in the
Legislature," said Doug Call-
away, president of FBT. "We
want lawmakers to understand
the level of frustration that ex-


tive Ali ,,,,,, e +

ists on our highways and high-
lighting the worst roads is a
good place to start."
The findings of a recent
statewide Mason-Dixon sur-
vey commissioned by FBT in-


dicate that motorists are aware
of Florida's transportation
problems since most drivers
experience those problems
firsthand. Out of the 625 regis-
tered voters polled, 76 percent


reported spending 30 minutes
or more in their automobile
each day. Two-thirds of re-
spondents spend an average of
at least 15 minutes per day in
congested traffic. Additional-


ly, 60 percent of those polled
agree that, "Traffic flow is a
big problem in my communi-
ty."

For twice the petal power, try Double Wave
petunias which are great in landscapes,
containers or hanging baskets.
It's that time of year again:
Spring, Mother's Day and time
JTl to plant the garden.
UL . "Each year gardeners have
great intentions to try new
plants," says Brooke Place, re-
ering tail brand manager of Ball
choose Horticultural Company, the
inbow world's largest breeder-pro-
of ducer of ornamental plants.
;, pots "But when they walk into the
iem so garden center they are over-
e your whelmed with all the choices
sure! and end up buying what they
with a know they can grow."
ance The good news for people
e from! who want to update their gar-
WlorS den look with something new
this spring is that there are now
"brands" of flowers and plants
that are "goof-proof."
These flowers are easy to
grow and care for because they
have been selected by experts
REET who recognize super-perform-
i ers. This should be music to
0 the ears of millions of garden-
a ers who have been left feeling
frustrated by poor garden re-
Ssults.
"Ball knows that breeding is
what separates the strong from
the weak. When a gardener
picks out plants in the garden
center, it's not always obvious
which plants are going to do
L* well over the season. A well-
bred plant will resist disease,
'05 tolerate more variations in the
ilniac weather and growing condi-
Ville tions, and be heartier and full,"
explains Place. "We grow Sim-
ply Beautiful plants because
!8_ they are strong, vigorous
plants that deliver easy garden
I/ 1Y i success. The combination of
good breeding with our high
standards for growing finished
plants should make it easier for
) gardeners to select plants that
11 they can expect success with".
This spring look for a wide
range of Simply Beautiful
plants including these six
goof-proof annuals:
"".... - TWICE AS NICE: If you
want twice the petal power, try
double flowers like Fiesta
Double Impatiens or Double
Wave petunias. The Fiesta
Double Impatiens are one of
the easiest plants to grow in
ve the shade and they spread with
twice the flower power. These
plants are covered with double
"rose- like" blooms that will
-make people think you are

don't need to pinch to keep
them lush and full. Fiesta
Rose is the new hot color this
spring..
For sunny spots, try the
Double Wave petunias. These
blooming machines spread up
to 3 feet in a season and are
great in the landscape or in
containers! Colors range from
lilac to deep rose.
EXPLORE THE EXOT-
IC: Tropical looks are all the
rage. Update your containers
with Fusion Impatiens in hot
new iridescent colors that re-
ally smolder -- Glow, Heat,
Infrared, Radiance, and Sun-
set. Mix and match colors or,
go monochromatic, the piz-
zazz is dazzling. These huge
flower heads are held high
above the foliage for a striking
show of hot colors that are
sure to grab your attention.
Plant them in beds, baskets, or
anywhere you'd plant tradi-
tional impatiens.
BOOM ../, WITHOUT
BLOOM: Foliage' is hot this
spring, and the bigger the bet-
ter. New from Simply Beauti-
ful is Kong Coleus, the big
boom without the bloom.
When you see it you'll want to
call it "King" Kong Coleus!
It's fabulous foliage, the
leaves are as big as a gorilla's
hand and the colors are amaz-
ingly vivid and rich, newly re-
leased tri-colored Kong Mo-
saic is a show-stopper! Kong
loves the outdoors in full


shade but can also be used in-
side in bright light conditions.
SOPHISTICATED SUM-
MER SNAPDRAGONS: An-
gelMist Angelonia are free-
flowering beauties with or-
chid like blooms that look like
old fashioned snapdragons.
But, unlike snapdragons, they
thrive in wet and dry condi-
tions and love the heat. Try
the unique mounding trailing
basket variety; it'll quickly fill
your baskets and containers to
their brims and overflow with
a cascading cachet of color
growing 6 inches tall and
spreading to 16 inches.
The upright AngelMist is
perfect update; for beds, bor-
ders or even as a'home garden
cut flower. Their large orchid-
like blooms show off a bounti-
ful mist of sophisticated, stat-
uesque style growing 24 inch-
es tall and spreading up to 12
inches. AngelMist trailing va-
rieties are available in Basket
White and Basket Purple. The
AngelMist upright varieties
are available in many col-
ors...new thius spring are
Lavender Stripe, and a white.
PERPETUAL PETUNIAS:
Tired of pinching and pluck-
ing your petunias? Wishing
they'd spread and fill in more?
Try Easy Wave Spreading
Petunias and watch them mul-
tiply! Easy Wave is more
mounded than their sister
Wave and you can plant them
earlier in the season than oth-
er petunias.' Easy Wave
prefers full sun, moist soil,


and a good feeding with an
all-purpose fertilizer every
two weeks, especially-When
planted in containers. Look
for the brand new Easy Wave
Red, the very first true red
Wave petunia. If you want
perpetual petal power, pick
Easy Wave Petunias!
GLORIOUS GROUND-
COVER Flowers Galore!
Each Simply Beautiful Land-
mark Lantana plant spreads up
to 2 feet by almost 2 feet! This
gorgeous groundcover was
bred specifically for landscape
use. Landmark is a blooming
landscape lovely, with flower
heads similar to small gerani-
ums., It's perfect for mass
pl'intingi, maintaining con-
trol, mounding and filling in
beautifully with a bounty of
color. Plant in any sunny spot,
Landmark loves the heat and
also performs well in cooler
climates. Try new Flame Im-
proved and new White.
Most people know a gar-
dening guru-type, but the ma-
jority of gardeners are admit-
tedly 'shy to try new plants, or
blathe themselves for less than
stellar results. Simply Beauti-
ful hopes to change that and
give gardeners flowers that
get great results with mini-
mum fuss.
To add new twist and a little
"spring" to your garden, see

and care tips, or find places to

The Christian's warfare


By Rev. Harold B. Bennett
In I Samuel 17:47 David
reminds us that "the bat-
tle is the Lord's ... and the
strength is the Lord's.
"We (the believers) are
but the vessels God
chooses to use. We fight
the "good fight of faith"
by His strength. REMEM-
BER our Lord's words,
"Apart from Me you can
do nothing." The objec-
tive of "the battle" is His
name and His honor. It is
for His glory to see right-
eousness established
upon the earth. The
preaching of the gospel is
the means which accom-
plishes this ... not neces-
sarily on a global scale,
but on an individual scale
... one on one. Those will-
ing to repent of their sins
and to turn their lives
over to God's control are
both saved and changed.
The ungodly are unwill-
ing to do this, therefore
they are in opposition to
God ... thus the conflict
that results when the
gospel is pronounced be-
comes the "battle" and
we, the Christians, are
God's warriors. He has
commanded us to fight ...
to bring the news of His
kingdom to all mankind.
Wi are 6b'6 Hisf Witne- s
es ... in word AND deed.
We need not fear the op-
position. God once said,
"Do not fear men who can
only take your lives, but
rather, fear God, who de-
stroys both body and
soul." We need not fear
the opposition simply be-
cause it is God in the be-
liever that is fighting the
enemy ... and who can
stand against the Lord
victoriously? NO ONE!
Not even Satan and his
forces. Some may say, "I
am weak." Never fear, for
"He is strong." As a mat-
ter of fact, He often uses
our weaknesses to prove
that it is by His strength
we are victorious. Martin
Luther's strength was


Part 1 of 3
seen in the way he laid the
burden of the reformation
upon the Lord. He would
pray again and again,
"Lord, this is Your cause,
not mine. Therefore dear
Lord, do Your work ... for
if the gospel does not
prosper, it is your name
that will be dishonored."
Matthew Henry, a Bible
commentator, once said,
"It is not the will of God
that God's people be
timid" ... humble yes, but
not timid or afraid be-
cause the Lord is our
strength.
We must choose to use
God's weapons in this
battle, not Satan's. God's
weapons are love, truth,
zeal, prayer and steadfast-
ness. These God will use
with great success. Our
task is to allow Him to
fight the battle by being
totally yielded to His
Holy Sprit, so that He can
express himself accord-
ingly. THEN we can be
confident of victory.
WHY? Because NO ONE
can overcome the Lord.
We must make our wit-
ness and the battle God's
cause. Not what -we can
gain (be it larger congre-
gations or larger offer-
ings), but what God can
gain- in lstl s6uls ..'' for
that is His primary pur-
pose for this age. Let your
motives be pure. Aim for
His glory and honor. Nev-
er be dishonest, devious
or underhanded. Do
everything in God's way
and through God's
strength. Let your faith (
or trust) in God prevail.
Will you trust God to
fight His battles in His
own way through your
life? In the early annals of
the Friend's Church, it is
written as a consequence
of severe persecution
against them ... "Say not,
who am I, but rather,
WHOSE am I that I
should fear?" We, the
church, must move out by
faith to do God's will ac-


cording to God's strength
and by God's methods.
Let us begin by being
willing to let God be our
encouragement and
strength. Let us walk in
the light of God's word,
being obedient subjects to
His known command.
God's strength will be our
victory. In Romans 8:28
we read a marvelous pas-
sage ... one filled with
hope, comfort and two
important conditions. It
says, "And we know that
all things work together
for good to them that love
God, to them who are the
called ACCORDING TO
HIS PURPOSE." This
verse applies ONLY to
those who love God and
to those who are called ac-
cording to His purpose.
How are we to know
who truly loves God?
Anyone can (and usually
does) say they love God ...
but is it real? How is love
to God expressed? The
Lord Jesus said, "If a man
loves Me he will keep My
words (or command-
ments) (Read John 14)." In
I John 4:21 and 5:3, John
the apostle said "And this
commandment have we
from Him, that he who
loves God loves his broth-
er also,"' a d 'Foir this is
the love of God, that we
keep His command-
ments." The Lord also
identified his true follow-
ers when He said, "A new
commandment I give to
you, That you love one
another, as I have loved
you, that you also love
one another. By this shall
all men know, that you
are My disciples, if you
have love one to another
(John 13:34-35)." This is
not a hypocritical, make-
believe, Sunday go-to-
meeting love ... but the
kind of love that is real
(read I Corinthians 13 for
a true definition of love.)

Future Now ministry update


By Chris & Terri Musgrove
We prayed for God to
open some doors and
boy did He! March was
just barely half over and
we had finished our
*fourth school. The first
week in March we were
in Shanksville, PA, inci-
dentally that is where
Flight 93 crashed during
the 9-11 terrorist attacks.
We saw almost 300 stu-
dents there during the
day but had to move to a
church that next day to
do the Christian rally be-
cause they wouldn't let
us do a Christian rally in
the school that night. The
night we were able to do
the Christian rally was
the school's basketball
play-off, so the turn out
wasn't very good, but a
few kids got saved and
some made recommit-
ments and it opened the
door for some ministry
there in the future.
We hit the ground run-
ning when we got back
to Florida on Sunday
March 6. Our first of
three schools began on
that Friday March 11,
and we had lots of work
to do to get ready. We
started setting up on
Thursday afternoon at
Valdosta Middle School
and the next day wedid
three assemblies' and the
students really respond-
ed well. That Friday af-
ternoon we tore down
and loaded everything
up in the trailers and
truck and parked it until
Sunday afternoon where
we set up at J.L. New-
bern Middle School for
three assemblies on Mon-
day. I think this was the
most active group that
we saw that week. They
really laughed at the
skits and really got into
the music but they lis-
tened when the real life
stories where told.
After tear down we
loaded up to get ready
for set-up the next day at
Valdosta High School.

We worked until almost
11 p.m. to get ready for
the two Wednesday as-
semblies. These were by
far our biggest assem-
blies with 1,000'students
in each assembly. It was
noisy at times, but we
got control, and they
seemed to be listening,
although the acoustics in
the gym were not the
best, to say the least.
That night we had al-
most 2,000 people return,
and'we saw 305 students
make some type of deci-
sion to Jesus. Glory to
God!
After tearing down
that night and with a few
follow-up meetings the
next day, and return of
all the rental equipment,
needless to say by the
time I got home Thurs-
day night I was pretty
worn down. We actually
did four schools and saw
over 4,000 students in a


little over two weeks.
God is Awesome and He
gets all the Glory!
Please pray for us and
if your not supporting us
on a monthly basis we
could use your help. We
need to hire our lighting
guy (Chad Moore) imme-
diately, he just helped us
on the Valdosta schools
and is a major blessing,
and we can't do it with-
out him. We also didn't
reach our budget for the
Valdosta schools, but we
still have to pay our bills.

payable to Future Now.

No Other Plan
When Jesus ascended to heaven,
He met Gabriel in the air.
The angel asked a question:
"Are you all finished down there?"


You weren't gone very long, Lord,
For all you planned to do.
You left only 12 disciples,
That truly believed in you.


Do you think Lord,
They'll accomplish,
The work of fishing for men.
They'll probably sit and rest a lot,
And your work will be at an end.


Oh, tell me lord, what if it fails,
To bring the lost to you.
What then, is there a loophole?
Another thing to do?


Jesus took a moment,

And looked down upon the land.
He said, my dear Gabriel,
I have no other plan.


Just give me a few good men,
And my work will soon prevail.
And it all will be worth
Every timber, every nail.


He wrote then this message,
On every believer's heart.
That we'd proclaim forever,
All the things that He did start.


HOW IMPORTANT
ARE YOU TO JESUS?????

Thank You Lord

Jesus gave all that He had


By Pam Campbell
Blessed, have you ever
thought about what it
means to be blessed?
Many of us have received
so many blessings we
may not even realize how
blessed we are. Quite of-
ten I hear someone an-
swer the question "How
are you?" or "How are
you doing today?" with
the answer " I'm Blessed."
I wonder sometimes if
any of us Christians and
those who are not Chris-
tians really realize what
we are saying.
Do we really realize for
example how blessed we
are to live in America? I
received a phone call the
other day from a mission-
ary in Honduras, and it
made me realize what a
blessing and privilege it is
to be living here in the
greatest nation in the
world, America. This mis-
sionary and his wife,
along with another mis-
sionary, are living on a
small island on the coast
of Honduras where they
are raising 14 children in.
an orphanage after al-
ready raising five chil-
dren of their own. You re-
alize this includes all of
the things that many of us
do such as laundry, cook-
ing, feeding, bathing,
clothing, teaching and
sharing, playing with
them, taking care of them
when they are sick, every-
thing we would do. for
our children, but for 14
children! They are even
home-schooling them un-
til God sends the orphan-
age a teacher.


Im addition to raising
the children, they run
Child Sponsorship Inter-
national, have an out-
reach ministry that has
Bible Schools for over 500,
Little League teams,
youth groups, a commu-
nity outreach where they
feed, clothe and share the
Gospel with hundreds on
the island and meet many
needs of the people of this
poor island. They work
with the island school and
give anything extra they
receive to other children
on the island who are in
need. One of the children
in the orphanage is Ana, a
precious child with Down
Syndrome, who was
abandoned by her moth-
er, and then kept in a
chicken coop with live
chickens before God sent
her to the orphanage in
Roatan, Honduras.
There is a lack of med-
ical help and very little
education for the Hon-
duran people and many
mothers abandon their
children. Most orphan-
ages in Honduras are only
able to meet the basic
needs of the children, like
food, shelter and clothes,
but this orphanage is like
a big home filled with
God's love, with added
blessing.s such as' an edu-
cation.
Think about all the oth-
er things you do during
an ordinary day, fixing
things, buying groceries,
taking care of your bills,
the list goes on and on.
They' do it all without
complaining because they
are called by God to


serve, because they care.
How many times a week
do you think you have too
much to do, or that you
feel overwhelmed? We re-
ally have an easy and
blessed life here in Amer-
ica. No, maybe we don't
have all we think we need
or want, and maybe we
do have too much to do,
but think of all the things
we have that make our
lives so much easier. We
have electricity that is
pretty reliable. On this is-
land, the electricity is
very poor, and the school
in the town is an open
grass hut without any
electricity and only one
teacher for all ages. The
orphanage just recently
was without power for so
long they ran out of can-
dles and were not able to
get any on the island so
they had to melt the chil-
dren's crayons to make
candles to have some
light! Most of us have
enough money we can
use togo to the store and
buy groceries or clothes
when we need them and
we don't realize what a
blessing that is. How
many times do we run to
a Wal Mart, or a grocery
store to grab a couple
things and end up buying
a cart full? That, is a real
blessing. There are many
people throughout the
world that have not ever
seen a grocery store.
When we grab a pizza to
take home for supper, we
have been blessed. Would
you like to be cooking for
17 people everyday?
When you grab a hand-
ful of your favorite candy,
you are blessed. When
you tuck your children in
bed at night in a safe, dry,
home in America ,you are
blessed. If you have a lit-
tle child still in diapers,
thank God you can find
diapers in their size. In
Honduras they can't. I
wonder how many of us
would really be willing to


leave all the comforts and
safety of our home, the
life we are accustomed to
and go live on foreign soil
to serve God as a mission-
ary?
Think about our ser-
vicemen and women who
are serving our country
overseas. They are away
from their families, their
homes, the blessings we
have each day, doing
without and living in
what we would consider
horrible conditions to de-
fend this great nation and
keep her free.
What about the people
who were in the Tsuna-
mi? So many lives were
lost, so many children are
left without a family, with
nothing or no one to call
their own. I received a let-
ter from Franklin Gra-
ham, which many of you
may also have received
concerning packing shoe-
boxes for Easter to be sent
to the children affected by
the Tsunami. Just as I feel
every time I pack shoe-
boxes for Christmas, that
same feeling is here at
Easter. You think about
the little things that get
packed in the shoebox,
simple things such as
soap, a toothbrush, a few
small toys, some hard
candy, just little ordinary
things that we take for
granted in most of our
lives and you realize that
this is all the child receiv-
ing it may own. That is
quite humbling when you
think about all we take for
granted on a daily basis
here in America.
In Psalms 68:19 we firnd
these words about being
blessed. "Blessed be the
Lord, who daily loadeth
us with benefits, even the
God of our salvation."
Yes, God does load us
with His benefits. So
many blessings, so much
love; we need to be thank-
ful daily.
Are we humble Chris-
tians, do we really care

about other people and
how they feel and not just
about ourselves? We need
to follow the example set
by Jesus in Philippians: 5-
7 where the Bible says
"Your attitude should be
the same as that of Christ
Jesus: Who being in very
nature of God, did not
consider equality with
God something to be
grasped, but made Him-
self nothing, taking the
very nature of a servant,
being made in human
likeness, And being found
in appearance as a man,
He humbled Himself and
became obedient to death-
even death on the cross!"
Jesus gave all He had,. He
was God in the form of a
man, He had the power of
God,He did not have to
stay on that cross, but He
knew this world needed a
Savior, and He gave all
He had, He shed His
blood for you and I that
we may have eternal life.
Jesus did not hold any-
thing back; He was obedi-
ent till He died for us.
We are so blessed to be
reading this Good News
article in a newspaper in a
nation where we have the
freedom to print the
Gospel. Never take for
granted all of the bless-
ings of family, friends,
jobs, homes, health, mon-
ey, success, beauty, free-
dom, whatever your
blessings are enjoy them
now, share them now, for
someday you may not
have them.
Do we thank God for all
our blessings. Do we real-
ly appreciate all God does
for us every day we live?
Sure, we all have prob-
lems, and we all have
days when everything
seems to go wrong. But
,think what it would be
like to live in some of the
other places of this world,
think about missionaries
all over the world living
with hardly anything and
some risking their lives to


help others in need. Think
about the people in places
like Iraq or Afghanistan.
Think about all the people
around you who don't
have some of the bless-
ings that you and your
family have, think of
those who have been for-
gotten in a nursing home,
those who are homeless,
people who have never
found the only true God
and His son, Jesus. Be-
lieve me, whatever your
day is like, there is always
someone having a harder
time than you. Not
everyone has even the
blessings you have. If you
have good health, thank
God. I you have a strong
sturdy house on solid
ground, be thankful. If
you have a job, it is a
blessing. There are so
many people that can't
find one.
If you want to. find real
happiness and really en-
joy God's blessings,you
will want to share your
blessings with someone
else. Jesus tells us in His
word that we should help
others whenever we have
the opportunity. "There-
fore, as we have opportu-
nity, let us do good to all,
people, especially to those
who belong to ,the family
of, believers." Galatians
6:10
Try to help others, try to
share some of your bless-
ings with someone in
need. When a woman in
the crowd, yelled to Jesus
that His mother was
blessed, he answered her
with these words "But He
said, "More than that,
blessed are those who
hear the word of God and
keep it!" I ask you to look
at your life today, to real-
ly think about ALL the
blessings you have, and
then ask yourself this, am
I keeping the word of
God? I pray that God's
continued blessings will
be upon you and your
family always!

The quiet


example

JBe sincere

and serious
in your
teaching.
Good
News
Bible
* Titus
i 42:7
Sometimes we may tend to force others to accept
God's love, or perhaps we may have a religious ex-
perience that we strongly believe would be benefi-
cial to them. The quiet example of our faith is like-
ly to have a bigger and more lasting impact than
our words. For example, parents are aware that
teenagers frequently resist almost anything they
are told, but this doesn't necessarily mean that they
are not listening. A parent's example is usually a
much better way of teaching a child what is best for
them. No one likes to feel that they are being
forced, so the motto "actions speak louder than
words" is a good adage for everyday living. If we
live our lives in a manner that is righteous and hon-
orable, we are reflecting God's love. Our Heavenly
Father wants us to be His disciples, and when we
do feel the need to speak to someone about God's
love and righteousness, we should be gentle and
kind with our words.
The Bible tells us that we should be compassion-
ate and kind to one another, and that we should do
good to all people.In all things you yourself must
be an example of good behavior.

"1ST BE P"ILISHED A LL NATIONS ~ .ARK 13:10
Suwannee Valley


Aunt Pam's Kid's Corner
By Aunt Pam


Blessed


I have question for all
of you kids today. What
does it mean to be
blessed? Some may
think that only rich peo-
ple are blessed, or only
adults are blessed, some
may think that being
blessed means having it
all. I want you to know
that when I say the
word blessed I am talk-
ing about everyone,
boy, girl, young and
old, everyone who is
alive, anyone living to-
day is blessed! You see,
life is a blessing from
God. Your mom and
dad, grandparents, oth-
er family and friends,
they are blessings from
God. Everyday, even if
things go wrong, you


are still blessed.
There are children in
other parts of the world
that don't have a family
or a home, they don't
even have a toothbrush
or a toy or even enough
food to eat. There are
children who have lost
their parents in a terri-
ble storm, all they have
is a little shoebox with
some soap, a few tiny
toys, a shirt or a book.
There are children liv-
ing in orphanages who
don't have electricity,
children who don't even
have anywhere to live,
children who are sick
and alone and many
children who have nev-
er slept in their own bed
or even had food like


pizza, candy, a cookie
or milk. I know about a
little girl who had nev-
er had a bed, but now
she has a family and
every night she prays
and thanks God "that
everyone sleeps in their
own bed." Many people
in our world have never
even seen a grocery
store, a school or a real
house. A lot of children
live in fear and loneli-
ness everyday and
night, without anyone
to love them. There is a
little girl named Ana, in
Honduras who was put
in a chicken coop to live
with live chickens until
missionaries found her,
and God blessed her
with a home with them


at the orphanage where
they take good care of
her and love her.
Now, I ask you again,
what does it mean to be
blessed? I see now you
understand. You realize
that being blessed can
be described as your
life! You are blessed to
live in America, to have
family and friends,
health, a home, a
school, a church, food,
toys, freedom and so
much more. The Bible
says In Psalms 68:19
"Blessed be the Lord,
who daily loadeth us
with benefits, even the
God of our salvation."
Yes, God does load us
with His so many bless-
ings, so much love; we


need to be thankful
everyday!
You have the opportu-
nity to know Jesus and
serve Him; you have the
chance to help others
like Jesus did. One real
good way to help others
is to pray for them, you
can also find out what
someone needs like
clothes or food and see
if you are able to give
them whatever it is, or
if, you can help them
with something they
need done, like helping
them with chores, or
carrying something for
them. You might want
to help children who
don't have all the bless-
ings you have by shar-
ing some of your toys or


clothes with them.
When we help others,
we are doing what Jesus
wants us to do.
Jesus died on the cross
for us, He did not have
to because He was
God's son, but He did it
so that we can have
everlasting life. He gave
all that He had, His life.
We are so blessed here
in America, and we
have so much. Kids can
serve Jesus, and they
can help others. All of
you kids have so many
blessings; always re-'
member to be thankful
for them, and to share
your blessings with oth-
ers. I pray you will con-
tinue to be blessed by
God!

Understanding menopause
Menopause is a time in a woman's life after which she can no longer reproduce. For
many, it is a time of uncertainty, adjusting to changes in the body, and trying to make
sense of everything. It may be a time of sadness or relief. Whatever the case,
recognizing what's "normal" may help make coping that much easier.
MENOPAUSE STAGES
According to doctors and experts, the word "menopause" is often misused to describe
the entire transition from reproductive years to a
woman's nonreproductive state In fact.
menopause refers only to the completed
state; it is something a woman me.iclihes. .
not something she "goes thr0tthg"l.-
Menopause is only one of se %eral
stages in the reproductive live; of
women. Here are the others:
* Premenopause -- The
reproductive years, from a filrS
period through menopause.
* Perimenopause -- The stage
directly before menopause. It "
is marked by accelerated -'-
physical changes due to
dropping hormone levels.
Menopause -- When a
women has experienced 12
months without a period, she
is said to have reached -
menopause. use .
* Postmenopause -- This
refers to life after the final
menstrual period. '
TRANSITIONAL
SYMPTOMS
Jtst like any other stage of
female development
menopause is accompanied by a
host of possible symptoms. Not
everyone experiences the same
symptoms to the same degree.
The following are probable
symptoms and their causes.
Consult with your doctor it
anything seems abnormal.
* Due to decreasing levels of
estrogen and possibly increasing
levels of stress, it is typical to be
forgetful or have minor bouts of c
memory loss. Rest assured that this Is
common and not a precursor to
Alzheimer's.
* According to, The Merck 'Manual of
Diagnosis and Therapy," nearly 85 percent of
women will experience hot flashes, or hot flushes as
they're sometimes called. Their precise cause is unknown, but fluctuating hormonal
levels can be a main contributor. Usually, hot flashes are the first sign of impending
menopause, even before irregular menstruation begins.
* As a result of hot flashes and night sweats, occasional insomnia may occur. Stress,
anxiety and other factors may compound sleep problems. If lack of sleep becomes a
concern, ask your doctor if he or she can prescribe a sleep aid or give you some
relaxation tips.
* Hormonal changes may also trigger headaches and mood swings. Their severity
ranges among women.
* Vaginal dryness, which, can cause discomfort and itching, is common when estrogen
levels wane. Over-the-counter lubricants may help provide some relief.
RELIEF AND TREATMENT
According to The Hormone Foundation, the public education affiliate of the
Endocrine Society, you can choose hormone therapy or other treatment to help
alleviate symptoms.
* Hormone therapy (HT) involves administering both estrogen and a form of
progesterone called progestin, which relieves many symptoms.
* Estrogen therapy (ET) increases the risk of uterine cancer if taken alone. Therefore,
this therapy should only be attempted by women who no longer have a uterus.
If you have a family history of breast cancer or have survived breast cancer, you
probably should not take estrogen or HT, although not all studies support this (consult
your doctor). You also should not take estrogen if you have had cancer of the uterus,
liver disease, history of blood clots, heart disease or unusual vaginal bleeding.
* Clonidine is a blood-pressure-lowering drug that reduces the frequency and severity
of hot flashes.
* Medroxyprogesterone acetate and megestrol acetate, progesterone-type drugs, may
be used to treat hot flashes.
* SSRI (Selective-Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor) drugs treat depression and hot
flashes.
* Calcium replacement can help prevent bone loss and osteoporosis.
* Counseling or support groups may help you handle the depression or confusion you
may be feeling as your body changes.
For further questions concerning menopause, speak to your doctor. It is never too
early to learn about the changes that may be in store when your body goes through the
stages of menopause, and what you can do to alleviate these symptoms.

flavors. American Lamb's availability at the grocely slotc and buLtihcr
allows the creative cook to dish up trendy tastes year-round. If you
don't find the cut you're looking for, just ask - and preorder when pos-
sible. USA-grown peanuts, tremendously versatile, flavor-packed and
widely available as well, are both familiar and exotic, making them a
critical component in these inspired dishes.
Spicy Lemongrass American Lamb with Peanuts in Lettuce Cups can

of contrasts between crunchy peanuts, tender American Lamb and
