Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
Suwannee County wants the
state to pay $12.5 million to build
a new elementary school in Live
Oak. .,-
The request is part of an ongo- .'"I
ing, statewide effort to imple- . .
ment the class-size amendment -. .-
which was approved in 2002 by . V
Florida voters. The amendment '
calls for a reduction of two stu- '
dents per classroom per year.
That means that by the 2010-11
fiscal year, public school class-
rooms throughout the state will
be capped at:.
*18 students in each pre- . .. ~
kindergarten through third-grade
classroom,
*22 students in each fourth
through eighth-grade classroom,
and
*25 students in each ninth :
through 12th-grade classroom.

Dick Jenkins can ride any-

"Once I'm on a horse, I'm on
him. I tell you what, I'm the
best."
Allaire du Pont certainly
thought so. When she moved
her thoroughbred farm, Wood-
stock Farm, to Kentucky in the
late 50s, Dick Jenkins, or
Dickie as she called him, went
to work for her riding her hors-

cowhunter and a heck of a rid-
er. The recent book "Kelso,"
written by Steve Haskins, fea-
tures Dick Jenkins and tells of
the days he spent working for
du Pont and riding her most
famous horse, five-time Horse
of the Year, Kelso.
The book tells the story of
Kelso. According to Jenkins,
Kelso's story is as good or bet-
ter than the story of Seabis-
cuit. He also said he has been
approached by people wanting
to make a movie of Kelso's
story, and they want to include
Jenkins.
Jenkins lives outside Live
Oak. He's retired now and
lives with his wife on Glen-
brook Farm. He has a fantastic


barn on his property where he
sometimes hosts the Budweis-
er Clydesdales and riders from
the Tallahassee Redhills
Horse Trials.
Jenkins still keeps horses.
He has nine head on his
farm. Most of them are thor-
oughbreds. He has two colts
currently on the track at
Caulder. Busman Jack has
four wins under his belt.
Slick Jack is new to racing
but Jenkins has high hopes
for him.
Working for the du Ponts,
Jenkins rose from exercise
boy for the famous stallion to
stallion manager.
"I was in charge of $183
million worth of stallions,"
Jenkins said.
Jenkins chose to retire in


Live Oak. Most people told
him they thought he would
choose Ocala.
"I didn't want to go to
Ocala," Jenkins said. "There's
too many people there that
don't know nothing about
horses."
If you'd like to read the sto-
ry of Kelso, it's number 21 in
a series called Thoroughbred
Legends. Other titles in the se-
ries are Man o' War, Nashua,
Spectacular Bid, Seattle Slew,
War Admiral and
Affirmed/Alydar. The books
are published by Eclipse Press
out of Lexington, KY.

According to Department
of Education records, Suwan-
nee County classrooms were
in compliance with the state's
mandate this year at all grade
levels except grades fourth
through eighth.
This year, Suwannee
County's fourth - through
eighth-grade classrooms av-
eraged 23.11 students - 1.11
students more than mandat-
ed. However, last year, those
classrooms were in compli-
ance with 21.87 students. In
the 2002-03 academic year,
the average class size at that
those grade levels was 25.28
students per class.
According to Cheryl Et-
ters, information specialist
for the Florida Department
of Education (DOE), Suwan-
nee County school officials
requested $12.5 million for a
new school by way of the de-
partment's Special Facility
Construction Account.
In previous years, Suwan-
nee County has received
funds by \�ay of ihis account
The, county received about
$8.6 million in 1988 for the
construction of Suwannee
Middle School. In 1994 the


state approved more than
$4.4 million for the renova-
tion and expansion of
Suwannee High School.
Last year, the state divvied
up roughly $51.9 million by
way of the Special Facility
Construction Account be-
tween three counties for the
construction of three new
schools.
State education officials
have recently expressed con-
cerns about implementing
the class-size amendment.
Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said
in his state of the state ad-
dress that state officials are
working on implementing
the amendment, "but at a
tremendous cost."
"Complete implementation
will turn our teacher short-
age into a crisis, and eat up
resources we need to recruit
and retain quality educa-
tors," Bush said.
Bush said that the state has
spent more than $2 billion on
putting the class-size amend-
ment into action. He predicts
that next year "the figure will
'rise to $3.8 billion, and
we're on track to spend
$22.2 billion" by the 2011
deadline.
Education Commissioner


John Winn has also ex-
pressed concerns that the
class-size amendment might
be forcing schools to rethink
their available classroom
space - citing the possibility
that classrooms once used
for music and art classes
might be used for regular
academic instruction
instead.

OPINION

THE

=. B BOYD

S- REPORT




BY CONGRESSMAN ALLEN BOYD

"Enhancing retirement

for all Americans"
As our nation's largest entitlement program, Social Security, is
founded on the principle that all Americans, regardless of income,
should be able to live comfortably and above poverty once they re-
tire. It is this premise that has made Social Security one of the most
recognizable and popular programs ofteifederalbgovemment and
one of the most trusted. Over the years, Social Security'has provid-
ed a consistent level of benefits to America's retirees, but changing
demographics will challenge the system's ability to pay these bene-
fits faithfully in the future. With Social Security reform necessary in
the coming years, I believe that an essential aspect of any reform plan
is the need to maintain a strong, defined Social Security benefit, es-
pecially for low-income workers.
Americans with higher incomes are able to take advantage of nu-
merous retirement programs such as 401(K) plans and Individual
Retirement Accounts (IRAs) to build wealth. Low-income workers
are typically dependent on Social Security as their sole source of in-
come after retirement, and any Social Security reform plan should
not make things more difficult for these workers. When developing
a Social Security reform plan, we must take into account the needs
of all workers so we can effectively and fairly modernize the Social
Security system for tomorrow's retirees.
Protecting low-income workers is one of the main provisions of
the Social Security reform plan I have cosponsored with Congress-
man Jim Kolbe (R-AZ). The Bipartisan Retirement Security Act re-
stores solvency to the Social Security program and does so without
reducing the defined benefits for low-income workers. Under Kolbe-
Boyd, low-income workers actually do better than under current
law. Our plan does this through a minimum benefit provision and
new savings strategies to encourage all workers to plan for their re-
tirement.
Currently, nearly 8 million seniors below the poverty level receive
Social Security benefits. Under Kolbe-Boyd, no individual who
works a full career will have to retire in poverty. The Kolbe-Boyd bill
strengthens the safety net for low-income workers through a mini-
mum benefit provision. An individual who has worked 40 years will
be guaranteed a Social Security benefit equal to 120 percent of the
poverty level. A low-income worker is defined as anyone making
$30,000 or less annually, and the minimum benefit provision allows
these workers to increase their retirement income by more than 10
percent. The minimum benefit provision is so strong that it makes
personal accounts a bonus for these workers.
As their pennies are stretched thin every month, understandably,
many workers find it difficult to save. Publicly-administered per-
sonal accounts under our plan would expand savings opportunities
for workers in this circumstance. The Kolbe-Boyd plan provides a
savings subsidy or "match" for low-income workers who make vol-
untary contributions to their personal accounts. Any qualified work-
er who makes a $1 voluntary contribution to his or her personal ac-
count will receive a government match of $150. The government
would match 50 percent for each additional dollar up to $600 annu-
ally. Workers who are eligible could designate their'Eared Income
Tax Credit refund for this purpose and qualify for the additional tax
credit. For the first time in Social Security's history, low wage earn-
ers will be able to accumulate significant accounts to pass on to their
families.
Most American workers rely on a guaranteed benefit from Social
Security and our plan strengthens this benefit for the workers who
depend on it the most. While Social Security has kept millions of old-
er Americans out of poverty, it has failed to offer low-income Amer-
icans the ability to accumulate assets and create real wealth that can
be passed on to their families. Saving strategies are an important el-
ement of the Kolbe-Boyd plan that will give these hard working
Americans the tools to prepare for their retirement in ways previous-
ly only enjoyed by higher wage earners. As we discuss ways to re-
form Social Security, we must not forget about the workers who in-
vest proportionally larger amounts of their income to Social Securi-
ty. These hardworking Americans do this with the belief that they
will be financially safe and secure upon retirement, and any reform
plan must foster this belief through a strong, defined Social Security
benefit.

with these events. Set some rules and guidelines for them to
follow. Some tough love measures are certainly in order for
their protection. I know, you can't hover over them and dictate
everything they do. Just talk to them about some of the dangers
they might encounter. Encourage them to use some common
sense in their activities and of course, wear those seat belts.
The sewer line extension out 129 North is now complete.
This will enable six of the existing businesses out there to con-
nect to city services. Two of the business have balked on pay-
ing their share of these lines. They will eventually pay up since
they are required by DEP to connect if sewer is available. This
line extension will also bring us to the Interstate 10 overpass
and enable the city to extend to the north of the I-10 in the fu-
ture. Most of the costs of these expansion projects that are tak-
ing place are paid for by the developers, not the public. This is
important for you to know because I get the idea the public
thinks the city is footing the bill for these extensions. You are
not paying for these projects. The developers are. The city
works with these developers to try and lessen the financial load
on them and make things work as smoothly as possible.
The project extending the water line on the west side of US
129 will begin soon. This will add approximately 4000 feet of
new line from the I-10 area south to the city limits. Develop-
ers on this project are required to install only an eight inch line.
Public works feels it is important to continue the existing 12
inch line. The city will pay the difference in the cost of 12 inch
pipe as opposed to the required eight inch. The city will also

Prostitutes charge servicemen higher
prices than their indigenous clientele. Gasoline stations on inter-
state highways charge higher prices than those off the interstate.
What are we to make of all of this discrimination? Should some-
body notify the U.S. attorney general?
The fact that sellers charge people different prices for what of-
tenf appear to be similar products is related to a concept known as
elasticity of demand, but we won't get bogged down with eco-
nomic jargon. Think about substitutes. Take the reggae song's ad-
vice about not taking a pretty woman as a wife. Pretty women are
desired and sought after by many men. An attractive woman has
many substitutes for you, and as such, she can place many de-
mands on you. A homely woman has far fewer substitutes for you
and cannot easily replace you. Hence, she might be nicer to you,
making what economists call "compensating differences."
It's all a matter of substitutes for the good or service in ques-
tion. Business travelers have less flexibility in their air-travel
choices than tourists. Women generally see themselves as hav-
ing fewer alternatives for emergency auto repairs. A man might
have more knowledge about making the repair or be more will-
ing to risk hitchhiking or walking. A prostitute might see a sailor
on shore leave as having fewer substitutes for her services than
the area's residents. Motorists traveling from city to city are less

Nothing moi

Derek Maul, Sunbelt Newspapers, April 2005
I doubt that I am the only commentator to have noted the cur-
rent media obsession with death.
The networks documented the Terri Schiavo tragedy in excru-
ciating slow motion. Within hours of her passing, attention shift-
ed to Pope John Paul II. Cameras hovered on St. Peter's Square
and newscasters seemed unwilling to talk about anything else lest
they miss their opportunity to broadcast news of the pontiff's last
breath in real time.
More than simply morbid curiosity I believe the excessive in-
terest also reveals an honest inquisitiveness based on the fact that
death is so difficult for us to understand - or maybe so difficult to
accept.
In observing the circus-like atmosphere of Terri Schiavo's final
days and the deep sense of personal loss revealed by the growing
crowds in Rome, millions of viewers have addressed a real cu-
riosity regarding one of the bigger question-marks in life. For
those who lack faith, it has amounted to a kind of collective
whistling in the dark.
I asked some friends about death, and what they shared was
very revealing.
"Death is not the end," Lou said, "its more of a beginning."
"Nobody can tell you about it first hand," Roy added, "you have
to have faith."
The sense of assurance and conviction these men shared was
iron-clad, unequivocal. "We're not talking about wishful think-
ing," someone else explained, "but reality."
The conversation lacked the "pie in the sky," quality too many
associate with religious belief. They all agreed we were talking
about the kind of faith that is based on real, tangible, evidence.
"When you are with someone who dies," Gill pointed out, "it is
obvious that we are spirit; you can absolutely tell when they are
gone."

account. Monies in this account are
earmarked for these types of projects
NOBLES and can only be used in the TIF pro-
ject area.
Finally, the installation of the traffic signal on US 129 at
Winderweedle is underway. This has been anticipated for
several years. Hopefully. this red light will make this inter-
section safer and more convenient for travelers.
It appears the insurance agencies now are the busiest places
in town with all the folks filing claims for hail damage. Man
that was something. Diane and I jumped out of bed and I
snatched on a pair of pants and moved my truck under cover
next door. It was too late. It got me. One good thing about the
storrm was that we got to see our neighbors. I think everyone
in my neighborhood was up and outside. The rain we have re-
ceived this past week has given us a fit. The city has been
pumping some of the retention areas and streets that are un-
der water. The problems we experienced this week points out
the need for the storm water utility program that the city has
under consideration.
I encourage you to empty outside receptacles that hold wa-

property for jars, flower pots and other things that serve as

likely to have information about cheaper choices than local res-
idents.
Politicians seem to ignore the fact that when the price of
something changes people respond by seeking cheaper substi-
tutes. New York City raised cigarette taxes, thereby making a
pack of cigarettes $7. What happened? A flourishing cigarette
black market emerged.
In 1990, when Congress imposed a luxury tax on yachts, pri-
vate airplanes and expensive, automobiles,. Sen. Ted Kennedy
and then-Senate Majority Leader George, Mitchell crowed pub-
licly about how the rich would finally be paying their fair share
of taxes. But yacht retailers reported a 77 percent drop in sales,
and boat builders laid off an estimated 25,000 workers. What
happened? Kennedy and Mitchell simply assumed that the rich
would behave the same way after the imposition of the luxury
tax as they did before and the only difference would be more
money in the government's coffers. They had a zero-elasticity
vision of the world, namely that people do not respond to price
changes. People always respond, and the only debatable issue is
how much and over what period.
This elasticity concept is not restricted to what are generally
seen as economic matters; it applies to virtually all human be-
havior. When a parent asks his child, "How many privileges
must I take from you to get you to behave?" that's really an elas-
ticity question. In other words, how high must the punishment
price be for the misbehavior in order to get the child to take less
of it? It's easy to see how elasticity applies to law enforcement
as well. What must be done to the certainty of prosecution and
punishment to get criminals to commit less crime?
My next article will focus on property rights, a non-economic
concept that has a heavy impact on economics.

re than dust
My wife Rebekah has shared many last moments with people
who are in the process of dying. She told me that she can literal-
ly feel the presence of assurance when she enters a room where
faith helps to define life. Confidence regarding the future is pal-
pable; likewise with uncertainty and fear.
The New Testament writer Paul did a good job of explaining
the relationship between body and spirit.
"When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable,
and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written
will come true: 'Death has been swallowed up in victory.'
'Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your
sting?'" (I Corinthians 15:54-55)
Jn the end, the most important questions for me are going to
have less to do with the timing of my death than with the convic-
tions of my heart. Why would I need my body to be kept alive in-
definitely by artificial means when the truest part of me has al-
ready been clothed with the imperishable?
I love this life; I deliberately engage all the potential and the
promise with a sense of abundance and commitment. At the same
time, I would be missing the entire point if didn't also tell you that
my joy is grounded in eternity. That is good news, not only now
but well after this 49 year old body is nothing more than dust.

Myrtice Chauncey turns 80
The afternoon of Feb. 12 started out to be business as usual for Myrtice Chauncey
who turned 80 years old on this date. Chauncey was told it had been arranged for her -
to go by the First Baptist Church to get her picture made for Valentine's Day. She was
very surprised when she walked in to a surprise birthday dinner given for her by her
family.
Chauncey was toasted, as well as roasted, with some of her closest friends and fam-
ily members telling some of their memorable stories of Chauncey from over the years
and the local Suwannee Valley Barber Shop Chorus stopped by and sang "Happy 80TH
Birthday" to her. Myrt
Chauncey's children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as well as about 50 of birth
her close friends, were in attendance. Needless to say this was very memorable was
evening for Chauncey as it is hard to pull anything over on her!

National Crime Victims' Rights Week,


Silver Anniversary, April 10-16

Justice isn 't served until crime victims are


Twenty-five years ago,
President Ronald W. Reagan
declared the first National
Crime Victims' Rights Week.
The mission of National
Crime Victims' Rights Week is
to provide a time of nation-
wide remembrance, reflection
and re-commitment for crime
victims and survivors and
those who serve them in order
to raise individual awareness
about the rights and needs of
crime victims, the challenges
that victims face in seeking
help and hope in the aftermath
of crime, and the positive im-
pact that individuals and com-
munities can have by provid-
ing services and support to
victims and survivors of
crime.
In commemoration of the
25th anniversary of National
Crime Victims' Rights Week,
the State Attorney's Office,
Victim Services Program, Co-
lumbia County Sheriff's Of-
fice, Victim Services Program,
Vivid Visions, CARC and the
Suwannee County Task Force
would like to invite all of the
citizens of Columbia, Dixie,
Hamilton, Lafayette, Madison,


Suwannee and Taylor Couni-
ties to join us in remembering
victims and their families by
taking part in the following
"Community Night Out" com-
memorative event. This event
will be held on Monday, April
11, 5-8 p.m. at Olustee Park
(Columbia County Court-
house) in Lake City. The
keynote speaker for the event
is Sharon D'Eusanio. She will
tell about her life changing
victimization. Within a year
after the attack, D'Eusanio be-
gan speaking about her horri-
fying experience and what it
took to rebuild her own life.
D'Eusanio is currently Deputy
Director for the Division of
Victim Services and Criminal
Justice Programs for the Of-
fice of the Attorney General,
Charlie Crist.
There will be many other
agencies and organizations
participating in this commem-
orative event. In addition,
there will be free chicken pilau
dinners and drinks provided to
those in attendance.
We can make this asuccess-
ful event, if we understand
that crime isn't "something


that happens to somebody
else." It is our family mem-
bers, loved ones, neighbors,
friends, colleagues and busi-
nesses who are profoundly af-
fected by crime and victimiza-
tion.
For further information re-
garding the event, please call
386-362-2320 or toll-free 800-
262-9799 and speak with Fab-
ray Wiggins, Victim-Witness
Coordinator for the State At-
tomey's Office.

Florida Department of
Health (DOH) Deputy Secre-
tary Nancy Humbert, M.S.N.,
A.R.N.P., recently joined the
American Lung Association of
Florida, Inc. (ALAF) to com-
memorate World TB Day-an
annual event held worldwide
to raise awareness and educate
the public on the prevalence of
TB, particularly in foreign-
born cases, and the steps nec-
essary to control the disease.
"In the past decade,' efforts
to stifle,tuberculosis in Florida
have met great success, yet we
know there is much to be
done," said
Humbert. "Through the imple-
mentation of culturally-sensi-
tive partnerships and services,
we continue to aggressively
address the issue of TB in our
state, with a tightened focus on


the rise in foreign-bom cases."
"The American Lung Asso-
ciation has been fighting TB
for more than 100 years and
aggressive efforts have led to
the successful decrease of TB
in our state over the past
decade," said ALAF Assistant
CEO Brenda Olsen, RN.
"However, TB is a global
threat requiring continued
monitoring, outreach and sup-
port to those most affected."
. : From 1994 to 2003, Florida-,
saw a steady decrease of re-
ported TB cases; however in
2004, the state experienced an
increase of three percent In
addition, although TB cases
have decreased in the state for
almost a decade, foreign-born
cases in Florida have in-
creased. Last year, 48 percent

actively pursuing solutions to
TB among foreign-bom popu-
lations by using evidence-
based interventions, and inter-
state and international partner-
ships, to address the impact of
the global TB epidemic in the
state.
Florida's county health de-
partments continue to act to
S'ptevent and control TB ini their
local communities., TB nurses:
and front-line responders face
challenges on a daily basis in
performing this vital task.
The Southeastern National
TB Center, funded by the Cen-
ters for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), has been
established to ensure that pub-
lic health professionals main-
tain proficiency in TB-related
issues, and that practitioners
throughout the region have on-
going access to experts in TB
care.
In addition, the A.G. Holley
TB Hospital is a leading spe-
cialized treatment center for
advanced and drug-resistant
TB in the U.S. today. The hos-
pital treats the most complicat-
ed forms of TB, and has
achieved a 93 percent cure rate
since its establishment in
1950.
The acclaimed Florida State
Laboratory System has also
been successful in the fight
against TB. Through the use of
diagnostic testing, the lab can
provide rapid identification of
Acid Fast Bacilli (AFB), as
well as DNA fingerprinting to
determine any potential links
between TB cases.

Gateway Surgical Group grand opening

Where compassion meets technology


With the grand opening
of Gateway Surgical
Group on March 10, the
doors opened on a facility
whose doctors and staff
are committed to combin-
ing the compassion of the
medical past with the
technology of the medical
future.
Public officials, mem-
bers of the medical staff
and the community gath-
ered at Lake City's newest
addition to medical care
to welcome two new sur-
geons to the medical com-
munity, Alex Soler, MD,
FACS and Edwin Gonza-
lez, MD, FACS. Located at
3140 NW Medical Center
Lane, Lake City Gateway
Surgical Group promises
to take its place among re-
spected, trusted, skilled
medical professionals in
the area.
Guests were invited to
tour the offices and take a
look at the state-of-the-art
equipment available to
give patients the best
medical science has to of-
fer. Dr. Soler and Dr.


Gonzalez are excited
about offering the com-
munity quality, compas-
sionate care in the area of
general surgery, treating
a wide range of condi-
tions from hernias and
varicose veins to diagno-
sis and treatment of
breast cancer and colon
problems.
"We are eager to be-
come a permanent part of
the community so we can
offer them quality, per-
sonalized care," Dr. Soler
said. "We genuinely care
for our patients, and part
of that means caring for
the community we serve
as a whole."
Dr. Gonzalez and Dr.
Soler are fluent in Span-
ish, and that, they believe,
opens the doors of com-
munication with the com-
munity in a positive way
because they can serve
the Hispanic community
without concerns about
misunderstandings be-
cause of a language barri-
er.
"We pledge to grow


with the community and
the patients we serve," Dr.
Gonzalez said. "We are
dedicated to getting to
know the community and
the people who make up
our new home as much as
we are dedicated to stay-
ing on top of medical in-
formation and advances
so we can better serve our
patients."
The two go hand in
hand, Dr. Gonzalez and
Dr. Soler agreed, and the
duo is excited about mov-
ing forward in Jheir ca-
reers with the people of
Lake City and surround-
ing areas.
The event was catered
by Lake City Medical
Center's Lighthouse Cafe,
which is earning a name
for itself. Guests who
gathered for the grand
opening of Gateway Sur-
gical Group were treated
to a magnificent array of
hors d' oeuvres prepared
by the Lake City Medical
Center's Director of Food
& Nutrition Services, Kirk
Churchill, and staff.


Office staff


Catholic Charities has an-
nounced the expansion of
its services to include a
homeless drop-in center.
The drop-in center, named
"A -Hand Up-: Center,"
opened March 28. The cen-
ter is funded by a grant the
charity was recently award-
ed. The center will assist
homeless individuals with
numerous services.
In addition to the services
Catholic Charities currently
provide, such as assistance
with food and eviction is-
sues, clients who use the
center will have access to a
shower and laundry facili-
ty. The center will also have
staff on hand to provide
case management and assist
homeless individuals with
the completion of paper-
work for benefits for which
they are eligible as well as
the use of a telephone and
fax for contact with poten-
tial employers and family
members. Homeless indi-
viduals can also use the ad-
dress of the center to receive
mail.
The center is staffed by
manager Pam Knighton
and Andrea Lumpkin.
Suzanne Edwards, director
of Catholic Charities of Co-
lumbia County states, "We
are thrilled to bring A Hand
Up Center to the Suwannee
Valley region to expand our


agency's services to those
who are homeless. The sup-
port available includes as-
sistance with eviction is-
sues, food, showers and
laundry facilities. The'pro-
gram seeks to remove as
many barriers as possible
for each person to be able to
provide for their own fami-
ly."
A Hand Up Center is lo-
cated at 262 NW Burk Ave,
Lake City, directly behind
the Catholic Charities office.
The hours of operation for
the center are Monday
through Friday, 9 a.m. to
noon. The center can be
reached by phone at 386-
758-4263 or by fax at 386-
758-4221.
The drop-in center was
developed as part of the
Homeless Coalition of
Suwannee Valley's Contin-
uum of Care Plan. The need
for a homeless drop-in cen-
ter was identified in the
Continuum of Care plan as
one of the major needs of
the homeless community.
Through the combined ef-
forts of United Way of
Suwannee Valley and
Catholic Charities, grant
funding was received
through the Florida Depart-
ment of Children and Fami-
lies.

Principals and school psychologists will provide answers


Anyone can speak directly,
but anonymously, with a school
principal or school psychologist
April 17-19, when the National
Association of Elementary
School Principals (NAESP)
holds its 16th annual Ask-A-
Principal Hotline. It's a yearly,
toll-free phone and e-mail ser-
vice in English and Spanish for
parents, grandparents or anyone
with a question to ask about
schools, children and education.
Approximately 125 educators
will staff the phones and com-
puter terminals while they are
attending NAESP's annual con-
vention. Their purpose is to ease
difficulties and encoirIage con-
structive communication be-
tween schools and families.
Family members who are curi-
ous, troubled, or simply need
some reassurance regarding


their child's education may
speak confidentially with a prin-
cipal or get specialized advice
from a school psychologist from
the National Association of
School Psychologists (NASP).
Call toll-free, 800-944-1601,
or e-mail the Hotline by access-
ing www.naesp.org during the
following days and times in

users may e-mail on Saturday,
April 16.)
Eastern: 1-7 p.m., Sunday,
April 17; 7 a.m.-7 p.m., Mon-
day, April 18; and 7 a.m.-1 p.m.,
Tuesday, April 19.
Co-sponsored by the NAESP,
C)AOL.iSchooll'", "Familh Cir-
cle" magazine and the NASP,
the Hotline averages more than
1,000 calls each year from the
continental U.S., Hawaii, Alas-
ka, and Canada. Callers ask


about a variety of topics, includ-
ing children's reading problems,
school discipline, special educa-
tion policies, testing, learning
difficulties, kindergarten en-
trance and school safety. Calls
on any subject are welcome.
The 2005 Hotline originates
from Baltimore, M.D., where
approximately 5,000 K-8 princi-
pals will attend the NAESP an-
nual convention. Educators vol-
unteer in two-hour shifts.
Callers may also request free
copies of parent-friendly

On being "Related"

in Suwannee County


It never fails. I come
home from work and tell the
man of the house I met so-
and-so and the questions
start.
"Are they related to the
Dick So-and-so's that lives
off 136? I think I know that
guy. Is he the sister's moth-
er's cousin of Daryl So-and-
so?"
The reason for the ques-
tions is simple. In Suwannee
County, everyone's related
to someone you just have to
know. The questions will
continue until some obscure
connection is discovered.
The man is now happy and
the questions cease.
The man of the house is
not the only one who does
this. In my office, it's the
same. Any name that's
brought up is extensively
discussed until all an-
tecedents have been uncov-
ered and all connections re-
vealed. And it's not just my
office and my husband, this
is a county-wide obsession.


Now you can't pick your
kin. Someone just told me
that the other day. Every-
body's got a blacksheep in
their family somewhere and
a skeleton in the closet. The
thing about living in Suwan-
nee County, everyone
knows about them. But then
the other thing about living
in Suwannee County, people
care and everyone under-
stands about the complexi-
ties of family life.
There are other interest-
ing family-related things in
Suwannee County as well.
Family reunions are plenti-
ful and often non-members
are invited. These family re-
unions can run to very large
gatherings and last for sev-
eral days.
Large family-get-togeth-
ers are as common in
Suwannee County as fleas
on a dog and can occur for
lots of different reasons.
Graduation is coming up
and families love to cele-
brate the success of their


Janet Schrader-Seccafico
young people. Then there's
cane grindings, birthdays,
weddings, peanut boils and a
host of other country-style
occasions for families ito
have a party.
It's a small world and rn
even smaller county. Enjoy
your family and your rela-
tives. Family is what life. is
all about, especially ,In
Suwannee County.

WHICH IS MOST APPEALING?
If you are considered undergoing
a mild skin-rejuvenating procedure
that does not require a lengthy
recovery period, you may be
considering either
microdermabrasion or a skin peel.
Recently, a study was conducted
that compared microdermabrasion
and a glycolic-acid peel.
Researchers administered both
treatments to the forearm skin of 13
women , ages 23-30, the glycolic
acid was evaluated in
concentrations of 30.%, 50%, and
70%, which reflect the strength of
prescription products. Five hours
after the procedure, peeling and
redness were less obvious with
microdermabrasion. In addition,
these side effects disappeared after
one day for microdermabrasion,
compared to 3-4 days with glycolic
acid. Both treatments are effective,
but the glycolic peel p reduces
better results while
microdermabrasion provides the
shortest recovery.
Microdermabrasion is a popular
rjon-surgical cosmetic procedure.
This treatment is effective in
reducing fine lines, such as "crow's
feet", age spots and acne scars.

Remember your 2005

financial resolutions?

- Simple, immediate steps to improve .

your finances all year long -


By: Meredith Taylor,
Suwannee County Extension
Service
Many people welcomed in
the new year with a burst of
energy to do things different-
ly. A lot of this gets focused
on personal finances. Resolu-
tions were aplenty, however
they often came with what
some folks would call the
"but firsts." You want to save
some money, "but first" pay
off credit cards. The "but
firsts" make it hard to change
anything at all.
The Institute of Consumer
Financial Education suggests
simple, proven and effective
ways to do things differently
with personal finances.
1. Become a comparison
spender. There are two forms
of overspending. There is the

borrow and spend crowd.
But, the biggest group of
over-spenders in America
pay too much for things.
Comparison spending will
put a quick stop to that finan-
cially bad practice.2. Be-6
come a regular saver. Some
folks never seem to get start-
ed. A regular saver is one
who saves a portion of all in-
come received. Becoming a
regular saver is quick, sim-
ple, something most people
can and should do everyday.
Start right now by taking a
dollar bill and all of your
pocket change and set it
aside. Do this every day,
even on the weekends. An
extra incentive to save a little
more is to take all the folding
money with your initials on
the serial number, and save
those $1, $5, $10, $20, $50
and $100 bills.
3. Extend the value of your
income. Get more bang for
your bucks whether they are
invested, being spent on en-
tertainment or real estate or
yourself. Part of becoming a
rRgular saver is looking for
ways to save money in every
part of your life.
Example: 30 cents of every
take-home dollar is spent on
household and grocery
items. One great way to ex-
tend the value of household
dollars is to :tse coupons, re-
bates and special sales. Now
folks will say they don't


have time to clip coupons
Time is money; so, if it take
15 minutes to clip coupoA
out of the Sunday paper ad
grocery flyers in the mailbox
and you save ten percent,
$10 on a hundred dollar ta
that is equal to $20 per hoi
4. Increase your net wor i
Increasing net worth is do
by accumulating money. a c
other assets (as opposed to
piling up the debts). You cai
also pay down debts. Coh4
sumers are building up pr
tearing down their net worti
with every financial thiAig
they do. So for 2005, keep
building your net worth up.:i

IT'S GOOD FOR YOUR GAME


Leave 'trotters'


at the track

By T.J. TOMASI
Universal Press Syndicate
An age-old question in golf is whether the
golf swing is a pushing or a pulling mo-
tion. The answer is that a good swing has
both kinds of action; however, problems occur
when there is a misuse of the pushing action,
such as when the player tries to push off of the
right foot at the beginning of the downswing. The
right side is not used like this in a sound swing,
which is why a player like Casey Martin, who has
a withered right leg, can play at a very high level.
You probably remember Casey as the man who
won the right to use a golf cart on the PGA Tour
and the Nationwide Tour (the PGA Tour's devel-
opmental tour) under the Americans with Dis-
abilities Act. Martin has a rare circulatory disor-
der (Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome) that
makes his right leg extremely weak. Yet for five
years his driving average on the Nationwide Tour
was about 290 yards - always in or near the top
10 in that category. If a push-off with the right leg
was necessary, he could never have attained such
power numbers.
Instead, in Casey's swing, as with all sound
swings, the right foot is drawn off the ground
onto its inside rim by the pull of the left hip as it
rotates around the left hip socket.
I'm demonstrating the proper sequence in the
accompanying photos. In the first photo, I have
just completed my first move from the top of the
backswing. My left hip, slightly lower than my
right at the top of the backswing, has returned to
the same level as my right hip because my weight
has shifted into the left hip socket. Note that even
though I've started my downswing with a weight
transfer, my right heel remains on the ground
while the space between my knees increases.
Many golfers at this point have already pushed
off of their right leg, causing the back knee to
move upward rather than toward the target. I call
this "trotter knees," in reference to the prancing
ponies at the racetrack. Leaping off your back
foot forces the club head to move out toward the
ball, preventing you from slotting the club.
In the second photo, I have continued to aggres-
sively turn my left hip, which pulls my right foot
to its inside rim, shuttling my knee toward the
target. I had these photos taken at 45 degrees to
the target line because it's the best angle to see
how much the left hip should move after its ini-
tial action, as documented in the first photo. No-
tice how this action has allowed me to release the
club from inside the target line - a prerequisite
for power.


My aggressive left hip turn (bottom
photo) pulls my right foot to its inside
rim, shuttling my knee toward the target.

After beating Phil Mickelson in a head-to-head duel at Doral in early March, Tiger Woods
has had mediocre performances at Bay Hill and The Players Championship.

Golf's best on stage at the Masters


By CRAIG DOLCH
Cox News Service
or the last half-century,
Arnold Palmer has been as
much a part of the Masters
as the azaleas and dogwoods. He has
played in each of the past 50 Masters,
a record that may stand longer than
the Eisenhower Tree.
But this year, Palmer arrived at
AugustaNational on Tuesday with-
out his clubs.
"This is a Masters," Palmer said,
"I'm going to enjoy watching."
It's easy to see why
On paper, the 69th Masters shapes
up to be unlike the previous 68 when
it comes to star appeal and hype. Cer-
tainly not in recent history have there
been so many top players who come to
Augusta National on such a roll that
they could don the green jacket with-
out it being considered a surprise.
How often has that happened since
Tiger Woods' historic win in 1997?
Call it the Big Three, the Fab Four
or the Fantastic Five (or more), but no
longer is it a question of whether
Woods will continue to dominate the
season's first major. He has company
at the top, plenty of company. And
they're all bringing their "A" game.
For the first time since 1999,
Woods won't even drive up Magnolia
Lane as the world's top-ranked player,
despite two victories on the PGA Tour
this year. That's because No. 1 Vijay
Singh has a win, two seconds and a
third to go with his- nine-win season
of a year ago. No. 3 Ernie Els could
become No. 1 next Sunday for the first
time in seven years if he wins, thanks
-to back-to-back victories in Dubai and
Qatar last month.
"It's great for golf to watch, be-
cause the No. 1-ranking guy is just in-
terchangeable right now, and they're
all very capable of winning or domi-
nating every week," said Fred Funk,
the surprise winner of last week's
Players Championship.
And don't count out No. 4 Phil
Mickelson, the defending champion
who has already won three times this
year, including Monday at the Bell-
South Classic, and twice posting
rounds of 62 or lower. Even though he
lost to Woods at the Ford Champi-
onship at Doral, their duel brought


LOUIE FAVORITE / Cox News Service
Phil Mickelson's muted
celebration upon winning
Monday's BellSouth Classic
speaks to his focus on re-
peating as Masters champ
this week at Augusta.
about stellar TV ratings and a buzz
that can't be measured.
There's also No. 5 Retief Goosen,
the reigning U.S. Open champion who
has finished worse than 13th only
once in six starts this year. And there
is No. 6 Padraig Harrington, who
came from seven shots back to win the
Honda Classic for his first PGA Tour
win.
And there's... well, you get the pic-
ture.
"I can't remember a time when golf
was in this position, where you've got
that many guys right at the top of the
World Ranking and playing consis-
tently well going into the start of the
year," said Thomas Bjorn of Den-
mark. "When you go back to 2000,
2001, everybody thought Tiger is so
much ahead and it's very difficult to
get to that level. But now, there's five
or six of them playing at that level."
The last time there were this many
players near the top was in the mid-
1970s, when Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevi-
no, Johnny Miller, Raymond Floyd,
Gary Player and Tom Watson took


turns dominating.
"It reminds me of the glory days of
the '70s, when we had almost 12 players
that were just guns," Miller said re-
cently. "You've got so many top stars
now. It's almost impossible to pick
who's going to be the gun. It's an excit-
ing time."
The Big Three of Nicklaus, Palmer
and Player also had their way in the
1960s. At one point, one of them won
seven consecutive Masters from 1960-
66.
Don't look now, but that's just about
happening again. Woods, Singh and
Mickelson have combined to win four
of the past five green jackets. And Els
could have won last year had Mickelson
not birdied five of his last seven holes.
That brings us to another reason
why this Masters figures to be must-see
TV: Augusta National officials learned
a valuable lesson last year when they
softened their back-nine setup so play-
ers could charge with birdies and ea-
gles instead of falling back with bogeys
or worse. All of a sudden, players were
making holes-in-one at No. 16 and hol-
ing out from the fairway at No. 11 while
producing the type of theater seldom
seen in sports.
The big names always rise to the top
of the leader board here. But don't
think this is just a six-player champi-
onship.
"There's a heap of players who are
just waiting to bust through and win,"
said Nick Price. "If David Toms or Ser-
gio (Garcia) were to win at Augusta,
that wouldn't surprise anyone."
Imagine if Woods and Mickelson
could duplicate their duel at Doral, that
would make for the most electric final
round of any Masters since Nicklaus
won his sixth green jacket in 1986.
"This is the kind of thing you want
to see more and more of," Palmer said.
"This is kind of what it was like 30 or 40
years ago."
The stage is such that even blas6 golf
pros not at Augusta who rarely watch
their sport on TV will make time this
weekend to see what Phil and his bud-
dies will do next.
"Those top players that we talk
about week-in and week-out, they are
definitely doing the business now," said
Els, sounding as if he's on the outside
looking in. "It should be one of the
more exciting years in golf."

their research, said scientists
are puzzled by the mother's
abandonment of the kittens,
especially since it occurred
so soon after giving birth to
them.
"We have monitored more
than 180 kittens and have
never seen any kind of aban-
donment," Land said. "The
field sign suggests the moth-
er went back into estrous
(the condition of being re-
ceptive to mating) three
weeks after giving birth."
Usually, the mother would
not go back into estrous until
the kittens are a couple of
years old or something hap-
pens to them.
"The hormone changes
that initiate estrous stop milk
production and prevent the
mother from being able to
care for the kittens," Land
said. "What triggered these
changes is unknown."
Karl Kranz, director of bi-
ological programs at the zoo,
said the kittens probably will
not return to the wild.
"But they could very like-
ly resurrect the Florida pan-
ther captive-breeding pro-
gram at some point if state
wildlife officials decide to
undertake such a program,"
Kranz said.
Land said the kittens lived
in the northern part of the
Florida Panther National
Wildlife Refuge. Their


mother, a 5-year-old, full-
blooded Florida panther
known to researchers as
FP107, was unsuccessful in
raising two previous litters.
Male panthers FP119 and
FP131 are possible sires of
the two newborns. FP107
was in the company of
FP131 when she abandoned
the kittens last week.
When researchers first
suspected FP107 had aban-
doned the kittens, they
placed monitoring equip-
ment at their den site to con-
firm whether the mother re-
turned to tend the kittens.
FP107 did not return to the
den between March 14 and
S ." -,

- . .


March 20, and the kittens
lost 20 percent of their
weight during that period. At
that point FWC biologists
rescued the kittens and
placed them in the care of
the Jacksonville Zoo and
Gardens, which has the re-
quired permits and expertise
to care for Florida panthers.
"For more than 90 years,
the Jacksonville Zoo and
Gardens has been dedicated
to inspiring the discovery
and appreciation of wildlife
through innovative experi-
ences in a caring environ-
ment," .said zoo spokes-
woman Jennifer Vrban. "The
Jacksonville Zoo and Gar-


dens offers over 2,000 rare
and exotic animals and over
1,000 unique plant species.
The zoo is a non-profit orga-
nization and is an accredited
member of the American
Zoo and Aquarium Associa-
tion (AZA)."
More information about
the zoo is available at
www.jacksonvillezoo.org.
More information about
Florida panthers is available
at the FWC's Web site,
MyFWC.com.
The Florida panther is the
official state animal. Scien-
tists believe fewer than 100
of them still exist in the
wild.

lieved.Radford in the fourth
inning with runners on first
and third, with one out and
Suwannee clinging to a 2-0
lead. Keene put away both
hitters he faced to end the
threat and then cruised the
rest of the. way. Keene pre-
served the win and the
shutout and picked up his
second save of the year.
There was little offense for
the Dogs against Columbia.
Junior right-hander Brian
Pittman held the dogs down
for most of the day. Howev-
er, Ross Aretino led off the
game by hitting the first of-
fering by Pittman over the
left field wall for an early 1-
0 lead. Stovall followed
with a hard hit single past
the third baseman and later
scored on Rheed Baldwin's
two out single. That would
be all the scoring until the
bottom of the sixth. Moran
opened that inning with a
walk. Stovall hit a hard ball
to third again, this time tak-
ing the third baseman's
glove off and putting runners
on first and second. Again,
it was Baldwin who deliv-
ered as he singled to right
driving in the third run of the
game. Stovall later scored
on a passed ball giving
Suwannee the final run.
Suwannee is now 10-5 on
the season and 2-2 in the dis-
trict with 12 games in the
month of April.

introductions were made and
the drivers were ready to go
for 125 laps of racing action.
The cool night air had made
the track surface cool and
when the green flag was
thrown, Brock Oglesby's tires
were just not warm enough to
stick. Oglesby got loose com-
ing off four causing one big
traffic jam. Involved was
Rich Pratt, Oglesby, Jeff
Scofield, Patrick Conrad, Jay
Middleton, Fain Skinner, and
Scotty Crockett.
All but Oglesby, who drove
off with a badly damaged
front end, and Scofield, who
had to go in on the dreaded
hook, were able to pit and
make repairs. For the second
time, the field was reset for a
fresh start.
As the green flew, it was
Wayne Anderson taking the
lead over Choquette, Boyd,
Daniel Webster and Keith Za-
vrel. By lap 4, Foster had tak-
en over fifth as Zavrel slides
backwards. On lap 6, Pratt,
who had a very good car, re-
tired from the field with steer-
ing problems due to the early
accident of the race.
Choquette is like glue on
Wayne Anderson fighting for
the lead when coming down
the frontstretch, Anderson and
Choquette actually rub tires
and smoke is seen. Choquette
backs off to control the car
and Anderson maintains the
lead. Lap 17 Patrick Conrad
brings out the yellow as he
spins down the backstretch.
Conrad goes in for some crew
attention leaving now 12 cars
in the field.
Anderson maintains the
lead followed b, Chiquqenc.
Boyd, Webster, and Foster.
Then on lap 26, Scotty Crock-
ett brings out the yellow as he
spins coming off four. Conrad
returns to the field with a new
modified as Robbie Smith
goes in for crew attention.
SLap 32 sees the restart with
Anderson, Choquette, Boyd,
Webster and Foster. On lap
41, Crockett gets under Mid-
dleton but Middleton holds
strong and does not lose the


car as they fight for position.
Choquette once again charges
Anderson on lap 44 but An-
derson is not giving in. Cho-
quette then finds a hard charg-
ing Boyd going side-by-side
with him but Boyd cannot
make the pass as he slides
back to fourth.
Ryan Foster taps Boyd
sending Boyd spinning off
turns one and two. Both Boyd
and Foster are sent to the rear
for the restart on lap 51.
Anderson once again gets
the jump on the field as he
leads the way over Choquette,
Webster, Mac Johnson, Fain
Skinner, Jay Middleton, Scot-
ty Crockett, Keith Zavrel, Don
Hale Jr., Boyd, Foster and
Patrick Conrad. Johnson
leaves the field on lap 58 but a
caution is thrown for debris
which allows Johnson back on
the track on lap 58. Also re-
turning to the field is Robbie
Smith.
Lap 60 once again sees
green with Anderson, Cho-
quette, Webster, Skinner,
Middleton, Crockett, Zavrel,
Hale Jr., Boyd, Foster, Con-
rad, Johnson and Smith in the
field. Skinner has sheet met-
al flying but it does not both-
er his determination to go for-
ward. Boyd has now worked
his way back to seventh and
is heading for the front.. Lap
68 Boyd is right on Crockett
for sixth when Keith Zavrel
brings out the yellow for a
spin off turns one and two.
Restart lap 73 as Anderson
leads the way. Lap 77, Cho-
quette once again charges
Anderson on the outside but
is not able to make the car
stick for the move. Anderson
holds strong as Choquette
falls back to third and Web-
ster takes over second. Cho-
quette wants second back and
tries Webster which gives
Fain Skinner the perfect op-
portunity to take over second
as Choquette slides to fifth
and Webster sixth. The top
five are now Anderson, Skin-
ner, Middleton, Boyd and
Choquette..
Lap 100 sees the sheet
metal from the passenger side
of the 92 come off giving


Boyd some good air condi-
tioning although tonight, the
air was already cool. The cau-
tion comes out to pick up the
debris and the field sees green
on lap 104.
The restart sees Anderson,
Skinner, Middleton, Boyd,
Choquette, Webster, Crockett,
Johnson, Foster, Zavrel and
Don Hale Jr. all fighting for
position. Lap 118, Johnson
and Hale Jr. get together
sending Hale Jr. into the hard
walls of Bronson. Both cars
are too damaged to return to
the race and retire for the
night.
Anderson holds the point on
the restart and takes the
checkered for his second win
of the 2005 Sunbelt Super
Late Model Series. Following
Anderson was Fain Skinner,
Jay Middleton, Jason Boyd
and Jeff Choquette.

pending on how much
money they raised. This

grand total of
$10,383.53!!! On the day
of the event, students
jumped rope while listen-

Navy Seaman Appren-
tice Kristopher L. Hughens,
son of Jacki L. Hughens of

Hughens of Live Oak re-
cently completed U.S.

During the eight-week
program, Hughens com-
pleted a variety of training
which included classroom
study and practical instruc-

aid, firefighting, water
safety and survival, and
shipboard and aircraft safe-

The true value of life is determined
more by our outlook than the external
circumstances of our life. And
although everything can be looked
at in various ways, those people
who are genuinely the happiest are t
usually the people who maintain a
positive attitude despite the
difficulties of their life. The stoic
philosophers were fond of saying
that it is not things which disturb us, but
our view or judgement of things. - t
When we simply change the way -
that we look at things, amazingly the
things themseJves will change.
Ultimately, we should ask ourselves
how we view $he universe and our
place in it. Do we see it as a hostile or a
friendly universe? This is perhaps the most fundamental question in
determining our perspective on life, and we would do well to
consider that God is in control and that events are unfolding exactly
as they should, despite external appearances to the contrary.

Count it alljoy, my brethren, when you meet
various trials, for you know that the testing of your
faith produces steadfastness.

GjHIS


It is very difficult, if not impossible, to understand
how God responds to various situations. God is
love, and we know that He wants us to always
do good and be the best that we can be.
However, it is so difficult at times to understand
why we are burdened with problems. Although we
know that God answers prayer, sometimes we pray
o diligently for something that doesn't turn out like we
think it should. During such times, we have to
:- remember that God's ways are not always our ways,
* and that God's ways
Share always to perfection. "Thy will be done" is
for our edification, and when we accept and
Understand that God always does what is best for His
*people, we can have peace with God through our Lord
0 Jesus Christ. Without problems, we surely wouldn't fully
appreciate our blessings, and for those who trust and
believe in our Lord, their blessings far outnumber their
* problems. In the Bible, our Lord tells us that in this
world we will have tribulation; but we should be of
good cheer; because He has overcome the world
S (John 16:33).

Many are the afflictions of the righteous:
but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
K.J.V. Psalm 34:19

don't know the specifics. of how it
works, Jean-Yves Reginster,
M.D., Ph.D., director, World
Health Organization Collaborat-
ing Center for Public Health As-
pects of Rheumatic Diseases, Uni-
versity of Liege, Belgium, claims,
"Glucosamine has been shown to
reverse several of the negative ef-
fects ofinterleukin-1 (IL-1) on the
joints. IL-1 promotes both the
joint-inflammation and joint-de-
struction processes in osteoarthri-
tis by activating genes that carry
the message for the synthesis of
pro-inflammatory mediators and
tissue-destructive mediators."
DOES IT WORK?
None of the studies provides a
definitive answer, and researchers
are split. Skeptics claim current
research is invalid, that conclu-
sions are flawed due to short-term
follow-ups and dismal sample
sizes. Supporters stand by the
promising results. Past studies
show that some people with mild
to moderate OA taking either glu-
cosamine or chondroitin sulfate
reported pain relief similar to that
of nonsteroidal anti-inflammato-
ries, such as aspirin and ibuprofen.
Some research also indicates that
the supplements might slow carti-
lage damage in people with OA.
In fact, the Arthritis Foundation
believes there is emerging evi-
dence that glucosamine is an ap-
propriate treatment for people
with OA of the knee, providing a
number of benefits, such as symp-
tom relief, improved function and
a slowdown in the progression of
cartilage damage.
According to Reginster, the
original crystalline glucosamine
sulfate 1,500-milligram once-a-
day formulation, approved as a
prescription drug in Europe and
available as a specific, branded
nutraceutical in the United States,
"has been shown to be effective
[in treating OA of the knee] in two
separate, long-term -clinical trials
of three years duration. Besides
symptom control, these two trials
showed that the compound was
able to delay the joint structural


IS IT SAFE?
One thing about glucosamine
no one disputes is that it's general-
ly safe. The journal "Food and
Chemical Toxicology" recently
reviewed its effects on glucose
metabolism, side effects and safe-
ty considerations and found, "Glu-
cosamine is safe and does not af-
fect glucose metabolism."
"It seems to be a very safe
agent, and I do not discourage
people from taking it," says
Anisur Rahman, Ph.D., a senior
lecturer in rheumatology at Uni-
versity College, London. There
are, however, a few populations
for whom it's not recommended,
including women who are preg-
nant or breast-feeding and people
with liver disease. Also, if you're
allergic to shellfish, you should
probably avoid it.
WHAT'S THE RIGHT DOSE?
Glucosamine advocates can't
agree - some suggest 1,500 mil-
ligrams once per day; others say
500 milligrams three times per
day. Glucosamine sulfate is sug-
gested over glucosamine hy-
drochloride for best results. "The
latter has been studied insuffi-
ciently in clinical trials, and the
few studies conducted show fewer
benefits than the original glu-
cosamine sulfate," says Reginster.
And what you see isn't always
what you get. An independent
' study by ConsumerLab.com
found that some manufacturers
were putting less glucosamine and
chondroitin in their products than
stated on the labels. Of the 25
brands tested, one-third failed.

sumerlab.com/results/gluco.asp.
BOTTOM LINE
If you have OA, especially OA
of the knee - why not try it?

At-home medical
test cannot
replace doctor's
appointment
Leave the do-it-your-
self approach to home re-
pairs. At-home medical
tests can't replace a trip
to the doctor, say experts
at Baylor College of Med-
icine (BCM) in Houston.
Home medical tests
sold over the counter and
on the Internet should
not keep patients from
visiting a doctor for diag-
nosis, said Dr. Clifford
Dacso, a professor of
medicine at BCM.
Some examples of at-
home medical tests claim
to detect thyroid abnor-
malities, diabetes, male
infertility, pregnancy,
drug presence, HIV and a
number of other ailments.
The main problem with
at-home medical tests is
misinterpretation. People
who take these tests must
consider false positives
and false negatives as
well as the sensitivity of
the testing environment
and variance in how di-
rections are followed.
"A controlled environ-
ment is necessary if you
take the do-it-yourself
approach," Dacso said.
"These tests only work
under the most optimal
conditions and with qual-
ified supervision."
If a patient suspects he
or she has a disease such
as Alzheimer's, further
patient care such as coun-
seling or education is
necessary.

SCHOOL


New competition highlights high school students' masonry skills


Marcia Miller


Special to the Democrat
from the Bradford Telegraph
"This is what organized
chaos looks like," said one
observer as students
poured over schematic
plans, scurried around
gathering materials, and
tools and held hurried dis-
cussions with instructors.
When the competition ac-
tually began, however, that
organized chaos turned
into efficient and profes-
sional-looking activity that
might have been found at
any construction site. High
School students from Brad-
ford and Suwannee-
Hamilton counties faced
off against one another
March 18 in a first-ever
competition designed to
highlight the skills of par-
ticipants in the masonry
programs. Students from
the Suwannee-Hamilton
Technical Center emerged
as winners of the Region II
Masonry Showcase
Award, which will mean
they can go on to compete
at the state level. Winners
at state go on to compete
on the national level. Stu-
dents from the Bradford-
Union Vocational Techni-
cal Center in Starke missed
the winner's circle by only
a handful of points. Al
Herndon of the Masonry
Apprentice and Education-
al Foundation (MAEF) said


the scores of both teams
were very close. Two of
four individual awards
went to each team after the
scores were compiled. The
competition required stu-
dents to build a specialized
brick and block wall to pre-
cise dimensions outlined in
a set of professional build-
ing plans. Both speed and
accuracy were required in
the timed competition that
was judged by professional
contractors from all over
north Florida. Bradford's
Teddy Harkin and Brad
Dunlap each earned an in-
dividual award. Jeff Sim-
mons and Charles Ward of
Suwannee-Hamilton also
won individual awards.
Simmons and Ward were
joined on the competition
team by Kegan Nettles,
Brandon Gwinn and alter-
nate Michael Hale..
Bradford's Harkin and
Dunlap were joined by
Michael Cornwall, James
Eric Griffis and alternate
Andrew Jackson. Jerry
Wilkison assisted with the
set-up. Adult students
from the two programs -
David Louis from Brad-
ford, and Alonzo Lee and
Bryce Johnson from
Suwannee-Hamilton -
competed in an exhibition-
only division of the con-
test. Perhaps the big win-
ners of the day, however,
were three high school se-
niors who were offered


jobs after graduation by
the contractors who were
judging their work. Those
students will be earning a
minimum of $10 per hour
straight out of high school.
If they sign up for a three-
year apprenticeship pro-
gram that combines on-
the-job training with class-
room instruction, they will
earn a minimum of $12 per
hour. After the three-year
apprenticeship is complet-
ed, a journeyman mason
earns an average of $18-$20
per hour in Florida, said
Herndon."Masonry con-
tractors don't mind paying
good money to the people
who help them make mon-
ey," said Herndon. He said
the numbers he quoted
were minimums and many
experienced masons make
salaries well above those
levels. Herndon said the
demand for masons in
Florida far outstrips the
number of people who are
being turned out of train-
ing programs like those in
Starke and Live Oak. The
industry needs more than
300 new skilled masons in
Florida each year and all
the Florida training pro-
grams put together turn
out only 40-55 per year.
Carlton-Walker Masonry,
Florida Rock, Painter Ma-
sonry and Masters Con-
struction provided judges
for the contest. Florida
Rock donated the materials
