HOW HIGH'S THE RIVER RISING?: The Suwannee River continues to rise and at the Luraville bridge, aka Hal Adams Bridge, on SR
51 where Suwannee County and Lafayette County are divided by the mighty Suwannee River. The water was several feet below the
tall bridge this week. The river is beginning to crest and by next week, barring any further rain, should crest at all points and begin
to slowly recede. However, the receding will take weeks and weeks. - Photo: Staff

SUWANNEE HIGH SCHOOL PROM 2005 'RENDEZVOUS IN PARIS':This year's Suwan-
nee High Prom was held in the school's gym. The gymnasium area was transformed into
the streets of Paris complete with a replica of the Eiffel Tower, sidewalk cafes and a
French mime. A 'Rendezvous in Paris' was the theme as a cobblestone path, fresh flow-
ers and greenery lined the entryway courtesy of Land Creations. Limos began to arrive
and soon the streets of Paris were packed with students dressed in their finest dresses
and tuxes. Pictured front is David Stacy. Back row, Jessica Kingsley, Xenia Davidoff, Lo-

to show consideration for
property owners by voluntari-
ly maintaining reasonable
speeds, whether no-wake
signs are posted or not.
The Suwannee River Water
Management District does not
institute or enforce no-wake
rules. Enforcement of the no-
wake rule now in effect on
rivers is the responsibility of
the FWC. Questions or com-
plaints regarding boating ac-
tivities on lakes should be di-
rected to county sheriffs or
FWC.
Residents who are unable to
reach their homes due to road
flooding or other access issues
should contact their county
emergency management coor-
dinator or sheriff.
Rain-swollen rivers create
dangerous conditions for nav-
igation and for property own-
ers. Wholly or partially sub-
merged objects such as trees
and stumps, telephone and
electrical wires, docks, and


dwellings pose a hazard to
boaters.
Vessels traveling above
idle speed pose a threat to
private property along the
riverfront and local lakes.
The no-wake rule is meant to
protect homes, docks and
seawalls on or near the river
from additional flood dam-
age. The rule also offers pro-
tection against environmen-
tal damage including ero-
sion, degradation of water
quality, introduction of pol-
lutants into the river system,
and the undermining of trees
and other vegetation.
The Suwannee River at
White Springs was expected
to crest April 11 at 80.7 feet,
and the Alapaha, Aucilla and
Withlacoochee rivers all have
crested.
River levels and crest predic-
tions are available by calling

Stupid airport security II
Hundreds of readers responded to last week's column about air-
port security. These were letters from Americans who fit no terrorist
profile - airline pilots, mothers traveling with children, disabled
people, elderly and other law-abiding Americans - and yet were
frisked, groped and hassled. The Transportation Security Adminis-
tration (TSA) behaves as if all passengers and all baggage pose an
equal security threat, and that's stupid, because not nearly all pas-
sengers and baggage pose a security threat. They've seized articles
such as tweezers, toy soldiers, hat pins, sewing scissors and other
items they deem as threatening to flight security.
I've solved my problem with the TSA. They have their proce-
dures, and I have mine. Mine include minimizing my exposure to
stupidity. Therefore, where I used to board a commercial flight three
or four times a month, over the last three years, I've reduced it to
once, maybe twice, a year.
Some of the letters reported more stupidity on behalf of the TSA
than I imagined. I'll highlight some of them. One person wrote that
he, his wife and son were stopped, questioned and searched at length
by TSA and FBI officials. It turned out there was a terror alert for a
person named Harry Smith (not the true name). The couple's five-
year-old son's name was also Harry Smith. How much brains do
you think it requires for the FBI and TSAto immediately realize that
their five-year-old son was the wrong Harry Smith? i
Another writer wrote about his 88-year-old, hunched over, arthri-
tis-ridden father, barely able to walk, being searched, questioned and
scanned and, as a result, brought to tears. Airline pilots going
through security are searched and asked to empty their pockets, even
though they wear photo identification tags and the TSA accepts the
fac~t tlhtitey're iindeedgpilgt., Here's my,quteso� ! IfW a pilot wanted
to fly a plane into a building, would he need weapon to do so?
There's little threat of another 9/11 hijacking event. First, sky mar-
shals are randomly assigned to flights. But more important than that
is if a hijacking occurred, passengers, knowing they were being
flown to their death, would subdue the hijackers. Giving them
greater incentive to do so is the likelihood of an F-14 fighter jet fly-
ing up to shoot the plane down. The greater threat to airport securi-
ty is the placement of a bomb onboard. The TSA practice of seizing
harmless personal items from passengers is a waste of resources.
Fortunately, the TSA now permits some items formerly prohibited,
such as knitting needles, corkscrews and cigar cutters.
Let's apply a bit of economic analysis to the TSA. There's little
cost bore by the TSA for harassing passengers. Screeners have an
eight-hour-a-day job. So if you have to wait in long lines, be ha-
rassed and miss your plane, what's it to them, considering the docile
passenger response? Many Americans accept the TSA policy, say-
ing that it makes them feel safer. I'd ask those Americans how much
safer they would feel seeing an 88-year-old arthritic man, barely
able to walk, given the treatment. Asking the question whether every
passenger is a security threat is similar to a munitions manufacturer
asking whether every hand grenade is good. A munitions manufac-
turer wouldn't pull the pin on every hand grenade to see if it was a
dud. He'd devise a test, otherwise he'd bear huge costs by assuming
each hand grenade had the equal probability of being a dud. Simi-
larly, the TSA should devise a test to determine which passenger
poses the higher probability of being a security threat. A good start
might be to establish passenger characteristics of previous terrorist
attacks.

this week in the democrat


Who did you used to be? That
question was asked of me this
week as I was talking to one
of the senior members of our community.
What he really wanted to know was whom
was I related to. I told him my former
name and also added that I wasn't born
here.
But, despite that fact, this is the place I
call home; this is the place my children
were raised and now my grandchildren.
Home of the heart, I think they call it.
Suwannee County, how I love ya!
As I was riding through the county Mon-
day, I thought, wow, what beauty we have
here. I happened to be coming from Mayo
on 51 and thought, we should have people
send in photos that they think represent the
best we have to offer here in Suwannee
County. I framed photos in my mind as I
passed brown and black cows grazing in
green fields as pink phlox gently blew in
the breeze by the side of the road. I also
took a mind picture of this huge silver irri-
gation system spread out for hundreds of
feet, framed by the golden sun, blue skies
and green crops. There was an American
flag painted on a fence gate and a little
white country church. Was I dreaming?
Not all these beautiful reminders of God's
glory could be right before my eyes! No, I
wasn't dreaming, this is Suwannee County
... If you have the.perfect photo that just
screams Suwannee County, send it to us,
we'll print it, and you, too, can tell your
friends and neighbors - - - Suwannee
County, how I love ya!
We've passed April Fool's Day and re-
membered to spring our clocks forward so
far this month. Here's what's in store for
the rest of April in the Suwannee Democ-
rat:
April's Dowling Park Gazette featuring
the groundbreaking for the new Copeland
Clinic is featured inside today's Suwannee
Democrat. The long awaited day arrived
for members of Advent Christian Village
as the community gathered to break ground
for the W.B. Copeland Clinic March 13. A
product of the 'Progressing with Purpose'
$5 million capital campaign, this clinic


will enrich the lives of Village residents
and help many generations to come.
Next week the Suwannee Democrat will
bring you the much-anticipated Suwannee
River Jam supplement. This supplement
will highlight all the Country Music artists
coming to this huge event at the Spirit of
the Suwannee Music Park. You can sub-
scribe today online at www.suwanneede-
mocrat.com to be sure to get your Suwan-
nee Democrat next week. You don't want
to miss this one!
What do you want? I don't know. What
do you want? Do these questions come up
at your house each evening when trying to
decide what's for dinner? I know they do
at mine. Well, your Suwannee Democrat
thinks of everything for you, right down to
what to have for dinner. Coming in the
April 27 edition of your Suwannee Demo-
crat, we'll help you answer those questions
with a Restaurant and Dining Guide. This
little newsprint book, small enough to keep
in the center console of your car will be
full of restaurants and dining ideas, so,
when the question comes up, you'll have
the answer at your fingertips!
Then there's May - May is jam-packed!
Here's a taste of what's to come. Good
News, Kindergarten Graduation special
section, delinquent tax rolls, Suwannee
High School Seniors 2005 graduation sup-
plement and of course, regular coverage of
all the end of the school year events.
Back to that special senior gentleman I
started talking about at the beginning of
my column. He was none other than the
Rev. Clare Parker. The Live Oak Rotary
Club honored the Rev. Parker for his spe-
cial service to others this week. His story
will appear in the Friday Democrat, watch
for it. His love for the people of Suwannee
County is evident, that's why Rotary chose
him for its most prestigious award!
Until next time . . . keep reading and re-
member Suwannee County, how I love ya!

Dear Editor:
Live Oak and Suwannee County lost one of its most "out-
standing" and public minded citizens March 30 with the
passing of Mrs. J.L. "Kitty" McMullen. There are many in-
dividuals, I am sure, who could relate personal stories and
testimonies abut the graciousness of this very great lady who
was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, as well as a cher-
ished friend to many in our area, including me.
Mrs. McMullen epitomized the "ideal" Southern lady in so
many ways - her slow, mellifluous speech, her manner of
putting everyone at ease in her presence, and her undying
support and love for those who were important to her.
She leaves behind a legacy of beauty, graciousness, and
generosity.
Through the years, I drove past her lovely home on
Suwannee Avenue on any number of occasions to enjoy the
beauty and bounty of her beautiful gardens. Truly, the home
and garden of Mr. and Mrs. McMullen was an official, unof-
ficial place of interest for all who were fortunate enough to
drive past and enjoy the beauty of the many flowers and
plants growing there. Their gardens, year round, were a bow-
er of beauty that were enjoyed by so many individuals, in-
cluding me.
The generous spirit and hard work that "gave" our Suwan-


nee River Valley such a marvelous gift is a legacy that will
live on in our hearts and minds for many years to come. On
a more personal note, I can recall that Mrs. McMullen gave
my parents a large number of roses that were arranged and
used in our home for their silver wedding anniversary in
June of 1981. She was a close and special friend of my ma-
ternal grandmother, the late Mrs. J.B. "Aninie" Taylor of
Live Oak.
Those of us who are citizens of this part of the state of
Florida can learn some valuable lessons from those pos-
sessed of the true sense of altruism such as 'ie late Mrs. J.L.
McMullen. She knew, full well, the important lesson that
many of us never master. God doesn't expect us to be per-
fect, but He does expect us to use the talents we have to pos-
itively benefit those around us. Mrs. McMullen had a "green
thumb" and a love for the beauty of plants and flowers. She
knew how to make beautiful plants and flowers grow and
thrive, and she shared the beauty of her gift with countless
thousands through the years. What a legacy of beauty-what a
gift. The Suwannee River Valley has lost one of its most out-
standing and altruistic daughters with the passing of Kitty
McMullen, but "A thing of beauty is a joy forever."
With sincere appreciation,
Johnny Bullard


GUEST COMMENTARY

America celebrates the silver anniversary of National Crime Victims' Rights Week


Justice isn't served until crime victims are
By Jennie Lyons, Executive Director, Vivid Visions,Inc.,
386-364-5957, vividv@alltelnet
Crime in America has a devastating impact on victims and sur-
vivors, neighborhood and our society as a whole. Crime in Amer-
ica continually threatens our individual and collective sense of
safety and security. And crime in America creates a universal
sense of indignity through the realization that any of us, at any
time, can be victimized by violence.
April 10-16 is the 25th anniversary of National Crime Victims'
Rights Week. It is a time to pay tribute to victims and survivors
of crime and those who selflessly serve them, and to reflect upon
the many accomplishments of the past quarter-century that have
made victims' rights and services a reality in our nation. It is time
to recognize that justice isn't served until crime victims are.
In proclaiming the first National Crime Victims' Rights Week
in 1981 and then establishing the President's Task Force on Vic-
tims of Crime, President Ronald W. Reagan stated, "Our com-
mitment to criminal justice goes far deeper than our desire to pun-
ish the guilty or deter those considering a lawless course. Our
Please address letters to:
Letters To The Editor, Suwannee Democrat,
PO Box.370, Live Oak, FL 32064.
Please include your name, full address and daytime
phone number. We ask this so we can varify your letter
and discuss any questions about it with you.


laws represent the collective moral voice of a free society - a
voice that articulates our shared beliefs about the roles of civi-
lized behavior. Both the observance of Crime Victims' Week and
the creation of this Task Force are entirely consistent with prin-
ciples that lie at the heart of our nation's belief in freedom under
law."
In 1981, there were few victims' rights that offered informa-
tion, protection, and assistance to those who were hurt by crime,
and only one state had a "victims' bill of rights." Today, there are
over 32,000 federal and state statutes that define and protect vic-
tims' rights, and every state and the District of Columbia today
have a "victims' bill of rights."
There was no federal funding for crime victims that supported
the provision of quality victim services. Since then, the Victims
of Crime Act (VOCA), the Family Violence Prevention Act, and
the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) have provided billions
of dollars to support a wide range of crime victim services that
address victims' needs for information, protection, counseling,
and help in exercising their rights throughout the criminal and ju-
venile justice systems.
The handful of victim assistance programs established 25 years
ago has grown to include over 10,000 community- and justice
system-based programs that help victims of sexual assault, do-
mestic violence, stalking, drunk driving, elder abuse, child abuse,
hate violence, terrorism, identity theft, and survivors of homicide
victims, among others, including Vivid Visions, the North Cen-
tral Florida Sexual Assault Center, the Live Oak Police Depart-


ment Victim Advocate, the Suwannee County Sheriff's Offices
Victim Advocate and the State Attorney's Office Victim Services
Office.
While these accomplishments are indeed impressive, there re-
main today many challenges to ensuring that crime victims are
treated with respect, recognized as key participants within our
systems of justice, and afforded services to help them in the af-
termath of crime. There are still crime victims who are not in-
formed of their rights, nor engaged as active participants in our
justice system. There are still crime victims who remain unaware
of a variety of supportive services that can provide help, hope
and healing in the aftermath of crime. There are still crime vic-
tims who suffer immeasurable physical, emotional and financial
losses, who still wait and wait to receive court-ordered restitution
payments from their perpetrators.
Justice isn't served until all crime victims are ti-ated with dig-
nity and compassion by our criminal and ju' mnile justice sys-
tems.
Justice isn't served until crime victims' most basic needs are
identified and that efforts are made to meet these important
needs.
Justice isn't served until crime victims are informed of all their
rights throughout the justice process - rights that empower them,
give them important choices, and offer them opportunities to
have voices and choices in their cases, and in their future.
Justice isn't served until crime victims car be assured their of-
fenders will be held accountable for their crimes.

How much is two hours .a
week worth? Most of us
waste more than that just try-
ing to decide what we might
watch on TV, listen to on the
radio and what clothes we
may want to wear.
For others just two hours a
week can create life-chang-
ing events.
What can two hours a
week do? If you are a volun-
teer literacy tutor, two hours
per week can help someone,
read and understand 'their
medicine instructions, learn
how to use a map to obtain
directions, to read and follow
a recipe and to learn the nu-
tritional value and impor-
tance of a healthy meal or be-
ing able to help your children
understand their homework

Successful diabetes

program will end April 30


Rural residents suffering
from diabetes and high blood
pressure might be looking
elsewhere for disease man-
agement control as the grant-
funded program SMART
could be in its final weeks of
existence.
The Self Managing Aware-
ness Rural Team, or SMART,
developed under the Rural
Health Partnership of North
Central Florida (RHP), offers
free home-based education
and self-management of dia-
betes and high blood pres-
sure. SMART targets individ-
uals who were recently diag-
nosed with diabetes or high
blood pressure and/or are ex-
periencing trouble coping
with their disease. Rural, mi-
nority or medically under-
served residents within Brad-
ford, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamil-
ton, Levy, Suwannee and


Union county directly benefit
from SMART.
The mission of SMART is
simple: to decrease morbidity
due to diabetes and high
blood pressure of residents in
the SMART service area.
Since the program's inception
in 2002, over 1,000 residents.
have been screened for dia-
betes and high blood pres-
sure, and over 400 residents
have completed the SMART
program.
The continued efforts of
SMART since 2002 has
helped to reduce hospitaliza-
tions by 68.6 percent and a
survey of SMART clients
showed 98.9 percent feel they
are better able to handle their
disease.
SMART was created by
RHP and administered by

The three-year grant period
for SMART ends April 30.
Desiree Hayes, director of the
SMART program, has been
mobilizing to raise money for
the continuation of the pro-
gram.
"Clearly, the goals of
SMART are being met and we
are encouraged by the fact
that rural physicians continue
to refer patients to our pro-
gram," Hayes said.
Substantial contributions
have been made to the pro-
gram. AvMed, a member of
Santa Fe HealthCare has com-
mitted $20,000. Trenton Med-
ical Center and Lake Butler
Hospital/Hand Surgery Center
have each committed
$10,000. Suwannee River
AHEC has committed $2,000,
and ACORN Clinic has com-
mitted $1,000. The program is
still in need of an additional
$30,000 to fund SMART in'
five counties.

Louise Herman came to see
"Mr. AARP Tax Aide" G. Jack
Wilson in his remote office lo-
cated here in the woods. She
was on an inconie tax errand be-
fore Friday's deadline. Her car
looked as though she had been
mudboggin.' Bailey Road (29th
Rd.) had a washout and our dri-
veway has some new lakes in it.
Challenges like this have devel-
oped all around Wellborn. Bill
Clowser is a rain gauge record
keeper, and he reports that the
first 12 days of April brought
14-1/2 inches of rain. Clowsers
have sonrqe new ponds on their
acreage off of SR 252, too. "Just
the same," said farmer Bill, "It
is good to see everything green-
ing up so beautifully. It looks
good, and it surely has not
slowed down our calving." Last
Sunday's birthing was a first
time heifer, and Bill helped all
that was humanly possible but
the bull calf died in the birth
canal. It has only happened one
other birth this season and that
was a male, too. Bill has almost
lost count of his healthy calves
this season. He and Natalie are
grateful it is so.
Cherileigh Dawson is a re-
peat visitor to Wellborn. She
came with her mom and dad,
Dendy and Chuck Dawson,
from Daytona. Her aunt and un-
cle are George and Bonnie Scott
who are also splashing through
their newly formed ponds at the
Scott Blueberry Farm. George


reports there are tiny green
berries on the blueberry bushes
along with some blossoms, and
the bees have not finished their
job of pollination yet. Cher-
ileigh thinks it would be just
about perfect to come back and
work at the Blueberry Farm this
summer. Sounds good to Bon-
rie and George, too. Blueberry
season needs willing workers,
even when it is primarily a U-
PICK.
A University of Florida IFAS
mailing answered some specu-
lation at our house. The letter
tells that it is Greg Poucher who
has planted seedlings in wide
apart mounded rows that are
covered with plastic. We were
guessing strawberries or water-
melons or tomatoes. The land is
on CR 10-A, a mile from CR
137, and it is watermelons! It is
an on-farm demonstration of
how to refine drip irrigation
scheduling, and we welcome
the study in our hometown.
Currently, though, there are new
little lakes on that land, too, so
they'll wait a while before it is
time to irrigate.
Too much water puddling on
top of the ground can be seen,
but water movement in the soil
is not easily seen and the object
of this trial on farm demonstra-
tion is to periodically inject
blue soluble dye into the irriga-
tion tape when irrigation is
needed again and track the
movement of the blue dye as


the irrigation system is used.
The dye demonstration can
help growers to save water and
fertilizer and therefore save
money. It will be fun to watch
and learn through this water-
melon growing season.
Carl Moses has lived in Cali-
foria, Montana and currently
lives in Live Oak. He read
about Wellborn's Neighbor-
hood Watch meeting and Sher-
iff Tony Cameron has invited
him to bring his experience of
successes in other Neighbor-
hood Watch groups to share and
inspire our Wellborn group.
Carl Moses was cruising
around Wellborn wishing he
and his wife could find a just
right house to live in. This cer-
tainly is a good time to be dis-

Ted Fralick's new beard is
becoming. With a sparkle in his
eye, Ted says, "Enjoy it, it
might be going instead of be-
coming." Ted and Goldie
Marie, Fred Gaylard and Mari-
lyn Kranz and two Wilsons rep-
resented Wellborn at Falling
Creek Chapel's homecoming. It
is always the second April Sun-
day, and this year the Rev.
Cheryl Pingel's parents came
from Wisconsin. Our North
Florida weather showed off
beautifully, and Ruth and Ed
Pingel chose to sit in the sun.
They loved it. They liked all the
nice things people said about
their daughter, too.
This Saturday is the Wellborn
School reunion, a noon time
meal, covered dish, at the Well-
born Baptist Church. It is al-
ways the third April Saturday.
Helen Cribbs and Denward
Morgan co-chair. Nostalgia
reigns. Centenarian Naomi
Dennard plans to be there.
Everyone with an interest in
Wellborn School is very wel-
come. It-is a good happening.


Annual Wellborn School reunion will be held April 16


Come join the fun at the annual Wellborn
School reunion on Saturday, April 16, from 10
a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Wellbom Baptist Church
as schoolmates, friends and teachers gather to
reminisce by-gone days, patch up on what's hap-
pening and to hold its memorial service for de-
ceased classmates. It's a time to partake of some
good old fashion cooking, great fellowship and


an opportunity to share photos from early school
years and past reunions!
Be sure to bring your favorite dish and dessert
to share at the luncheon which begins at noon.
Don't forget to wear your school colors ... -urple
and gold! ,."

away April 8, the day after
her 68th birthday, at her sis-
ter's home after a long illness
and thousands of hours of
commitment to her state, her
county and the victims of
drunk drivers.
Lewis was named several
years ago by the national
MADD office as one of 20
people across America who
made a difference, was an
avid volunteer for MADD.
Not only did she organize the
local group, but one in
Hamilton County also. She
was a tireless volunteer who
never knew any limits when
it came to her passion of vol-
unteering with MADD.
A victim of a drunk driver
herself, Lewis suffered se-
vere injuries in an accident in
Alabama when her truck was
hit on a winding mountain-
side. Riding with Lewis that
day were her four nieces who
she and her parents were rais-
ing after their mother had
been killed in a domestic vio-
lence incident. All were criti-
cally injured. Lewis carried
the results of those injuries
with her until the day she
died. A broken hip in that ac-
cident, coupled with Scolio-


sis of the spine, led her to
spend her life unable to
straighten up and in the last
few years, she used a walker,
and later a wheel chair. Still,
it never deterred her from go-
ing to court to be with fami-
lies at trials who had lost
loved ones to drunk drivers or
from going to the homes of
the victims to comfort their
families, with little regard for
her own health. Regardless of
how much pain Lewis felt,
she kept her commitments to
hold candlelight services for
victims of drunk drivers, par-
ticipate in traffic blockades
by law enforcement to look
for drunk drivers or to hold
MADD Victim Impact Panels
where convicted drunk dri-
vers were required by the
courts to attend and listen to
this humble Christian woman
talk about her life being
changed by a drunk driver.
The defendants also had to
face families of many who
were killed by drunk drivers
and see them show photos of
their beloved one as they told
of the tragedy and how it had
effected their lives. Many
tears were shed in the pro-
grams by the families and of-
ten by the defendants. Lewis
once told a reporter that after


one of these programs, a man
who had been charged with
DUI and was required to at-
tend came to her and thanked
her for what she was doing.
Lewis was heavily in-
volved in the state MADD
activities and participated in
many of its activities at the
state level until her health
simply would no longer allow
her to travel. She groomed
many people over the years to
carry on the MADD pro-
grams in Suwannee and
Hamilton counties, knowing
the day would come when
she could not. She had no ve-
hicle and had to depend upon
friends and relatives to get
her to events. Her friends and
family stepped up to the
plate.
"She was a real strong ad-
vocate for folks who were in-
jured as a result of drunk dri-
vers," said Suwannee County
Judge Bill Slaughter. "She
was the driving force that got
us to start doing the Victim
Impact Panels here in Suwan-
nee County. That has really
been an extremely effective
part of the DUI sentencing,"
he said. Judge Slaughter said
Lewis was a driving force not
only here in Suwannee Coun-
ty, but statewide. "She will be


missed," he said. "She was
committed, and that's putting
it mildly," he added. "Some
of the responses from those
required to attend the Victim
Impact Panels have told us it
was a real eye opener, that
they didn't think about the
damage that could be caused
as a result of their drunk dri-
ving until they went to this
meeting." Judge Slaughter
said in the beginning when
Lewis proposed having the
Victim Impact Panels, he
wasn't sure it would work. He
said he soon found it was one
of the best tools he had ever
seen for dealing with DUI
drivers.
Judge Slaughter said Lewis
was a dynamo of energy in
her work for MADD. "You
couldn't say no to Barbara
Lewis," Judge Slaughter
agreed. The judge said he
hopes her work will continue
on as it's had a huge impact in
his court.
A Lake City native, Lewis
moved to Suwannee County
from Addison, Al years ago
to make her home near her
sister, Jennie Lee. "She
planned her own funeral,"
said Lee of Lewis. "It's not
going to be a funeral, it's go-
ing to be a party!" Lee said
Lewis requested balloons in-
stead of flowers and lots of
music and cheerfulness to
celebrate her homegoing.
Lewis was a member of the
Apostolic Church in Well-


born.
Services for Lewis were
conducted Tuesday, April 12,
at First Baptist Church of
Branford at 2 p.m. with the
Rev. Billy Davis, the Rev.
Bryan Jones, the Rev.
Richard Whitman and Eric
Lewis officiating. Interment
was in Mt. Pisgah Baptist
Church Cemetery in
McAlpin. The family re-

make a donation in her mem-
ory make it to MADD, atten-

W�fLNFlA APRIIIL� 13 2005 U- SUANE EOCA/IV A


One of the most wonderful
people from our community has
gone on to her reward in Heav-
en with her Lord and Savior, Je-
sus Christ. Barbara Lewis, who
many of you knew personally or
at least through the many stories
we've done on her and her life's
work, died at her sister Jennie
Lee's home April 8. Barbara
helped established the local
MADD (Mothers Against
Drunk Driving) unit here years
ago. Barbara had a reason for
being vitally interested in this
volunteer organization. She and
her "adopted" children were the
victims of a drunk driver in Al-
abama as they returned home on
a mountain road from church
years ago. Hit head-on, Barbara,
nearly lost her life, and she and
the four children were all in-
jured. It left her with serious in-
juries that caused her a lifetime
of pain and suffering. In Barbara
Lewis' case you could easily say
that although the injuries were
devastating, she did not let it
handicap her. She spent the rest
of her life bent over, partially
from the injuries and partially
from a back problem she al-
ready had, suffering in great
pain, yet never would she say no
to anyone who needed her. Nev-
er in my life have I met a person
with such drive, such love for
her fellow human beings, such a
need to spread the joy of being a
Christian, such a need to share
her story not only with those
who suffered at the hands of
drunken drivers, but with those
very people who caused such
devastation by their actions.
When Barbara Lewis could
barely drag herself through her
day with her physical handi-
daps, she would find a way to
make it to MADD candlelight
services for victims of drunk
drivers, drag herself to meetings
where people convicted of DUI
had been ordered by local
judges to attend. There, Barbara
would carefully explain in a
way none of us could as she
stood, bent over and humble in
front of these offenders as she
worked to get the message
through to them....don't drink
and. drive or you will kill or
main someone like me if you
haven't already.
There's just no way to de-
scribe this humble, Christian
woman who was selected by the
national MADD office as one of
20 people across the nation who
make a difference. There was
nothing she wouldn't dojto help
stop drunk (and drugged) dri-
vers from being on the streets. I
personally was with her once
when she attended an event on
US 90 at night where law en-
forcement from everywhere
gathered and initiated a traffic


blockade for hours to check for
drunk drivers. It was absolutely
freezing that night but she was
there to help provide coffee and
other refreshments to those men
and women as a sign of encour-
agement. She didn't need to be
out in that type of weather, but
Barbara felt a call that came
from within to do her part, to be
there to encourage these officers
to do a good job or someone
could end up dead or severely
injured if a drunk driver got
through. She never backed
away from going to families
who had suffered the loss of a
loved one by the act of a drunk-
en driver. She stayed in touch
with these wounded families,
comforting them, guiding them
through the court process, being
there for them when they had to
testify in court as the offender
was being sentenced. Barbara
saw through color barriers, age
barriers and offered her warm,
loving prayers and assistance
when it was needed...a shining
light in lives filled with dark-
ness after such tragic losses in
their lives. She did it all because
she was God's child no matter
.what the calamity that happened
to her. She knew who she was
and what her job was here on
earth, in her work with MADD,
and in her work in caring for
"her" children. The four chil-
dren she and her parents raised
were her sister's. Barbara once
told me how'her sister had been
killed in a domestic violence in-
cident and Barbara had taken
the children and raised them.
She also raised about a half
dozen other children years ago.
She never complained about her
'plight in life...it was her duty
and she got right to.the job with
God on her side, which was just
the way she saw life.
Barbara didn't have many
earthly possessions. She lived in
Branford in an apartment in her
last years. It didn't matter to
Barbara, she was happy wher-
ever she was. She had no car but
her friends helped by providing
a means of travel when she
needed to go to others and do
her work with MADD. She was
grateful. Her friends and family
were many and faithful.
There was another side to
Barbara that few knew. She was
a singer of gospel music,
writer of more than 100 gospel
songs, a person who could
laugh at herself. She once told
me while laughing heartily
about the time she was in Talla-
hassee for a huge MADD event
and the elastic in her skirt broke
and she lost her skirt....in front
of many, many people. While
most of us would have died of
embarrassment and hidden in
shame, Barbara grabbed up her

skirt and carried on, laughing
about the entire incident even
after it happened.
We could all take many
lessons from this saint of a
woman. She was humble, she
was grateful, she was faithful.
Less than two months ago she
was talking to me, worrying
about getting information to me
about the next MADD event, in-
formation she herself prepared
carefully in hand-written form
without a single mistake almost
every time. A woman who had
had five heart attacks, Barbara
never let any illness keep from
accomplishing her goals.
Barbara is gone from among
us now, a person who should
have been named Suwannee
County's Citizen of the Year but
never was. A person who
should have received state


recognition for all she did...but
never did. A person who didn't
belong to clubs and organiza-
tions, but belonged to God. To-
day, she stands tall again, never
to walk bent over, never in pain,
and in Heaven where she now
resides, Barbara Lewis walks
among kings and queens, com-
mon folks like you and I, all
who now have no earthly titles
but who are the same in Heav-
en, and best of all, she's in the
presence of Jesus, where she
longed to be. Goodbye, Barbara
Lewis, we will miss you and the
standard you set for giving of
one's self to help others in need.
If just one person gives more of
themselves to help others be-
cause of Barbara Lewis, this
world will be a better place be-
cause of the example she has set
during her life.

Blood Centers is in emergency
need of type O blood donors.
As of Thursday, April 8, the
blood center reported they
have 25 percent of their normal
supply of type O, more than
300 units less than optimum,
throughout their 16 regions in
Atlanta, Florida and Georgia.
About 44 percent of the pop-
ulation is either O-positive or
O-negative and it is a critical
blood type for hospitals, espe-
cially trauma centers, to have
available to treat emergency
patients. The shortage is the re-
sult of an increased demand
from many Life-South-served
hospitals and weak donations
due to spring break and weath-

S The Orthopaedic Institute at UF&Shands is one of the premier facilities of its kind in the
nation Not only do we have an outstanding team of top UF orthopaedic physicians, we
are now home to the Human Motion Lab. Here. specialists use a motion capture system
comparable to that used by major animation studios to analyze a patient's gait and more
accurately diagnose orthopaedic problems. The results are more effective treatment
and shorter recovery times. With this kind of leading edge technology, perhaps we
should be the ones saying "Hey. watch this!" the SCIENCE ol HOPE

Chambliss

improves

his record

to 5-1, 1-0
Tyler Chambliss, a sopho-
more at FSU, has improved
his pitching record to 5-1, 1-0
for the current season. Cham-
bliss pitched his last game as
a Bulldog in 2003.
Chambliss picked up a win
against Clemson Saturday,
April 2, during a double-
header. The Seminoles won
the game 5-4.
Chambliss also picked up a
save in the series with Clem-
son. Coming in to pitch in the
ninth, Chambliss put a couple
of runners on before a pop fly
and a strikeout ended the
game.
FSU is currently ranked
sixth in the nation, has a 29-6
overall record and a 7-1
record for ACC play.

The trout have recov-

weather of the past week-

are doing nicely for those

By Ken Cook
One of the most exaggerat-
ed things I often hear said
when anglers are discussing
screen images displayed on
their fishfinders is the need for
a perfect arc to indicate the
presence of fish. Although this
is a widely held truth among
many novice fishermen 'it is a
complete myth. In order to un-
derstand why this statement is

too. It was a great game with
Suwannee taking home the
win 8-7 in the last inning.
"It was a nice honor to
have someone like this come
and broadcast, as well as
market your program out of
all the high school teams in
the state playing on this
day," Coach Ronnie Gray
said about Schwarze and the
broadcast.
Both teams played well,
but Suwannee prevailed,


scoring the winning run in
the bottom of the seventh in-
ning.
The game was punctuated
by five home runs. Three
came from the Florida High
bats. Gabe Galloway hit a
long homer in the fifth and
Matt Yanossy smacked one
over the center field wall to
win the game for Suwannee
in the bottom of the seventh.

As the Bulldog baseball
team was in a tense battle
with arch-rival Florida High,
the Lady Dogs were busy
embarrassing the Florida

High in five innings 10-0.
The game was called for the
mercy, ten-run-rule, after
five innings.
Lea Schenck pitched for


the Lady Dogs. She went all
five innings, had 11 strike-
outs, gave up two walks and
no hits.
Offensively, the Lady

10 runs.
Stephanie Starling hit a
double and had two RBI's.
Courtney Ross went 2/2
with a double and a single.

Billy Moran started on the
nliill'r'd "lr'-' ti e' ''-),gf ' W rAn
held on until the sixth in-'
ning. Rheed Baldwin came
in as relief in the seventh.
The Dogs got off to a great
start in the first inning. Dog
second-baseman Zack Davis
combined with short stop
Ryan Stovall and first base-
man Michael Keene to put
together a fantastic double
play. Moran picked off the
runner at first for the third
out.
At the end of one inning
the score was 0-0 and it
stayed that way through the
second.
In the third, Moran gave
up a single-run homerun to
make the score 0-1.
Matt Yanossy walked and
Moran singled into center
field to get things rolling for
the Dogs in the third. Ryan
Stovall singled up the mid-
dle with a lucky ball that
hopped over the pitcher and
the second baseman and
scored Yanossy who slid
into home base in a cloud of
red dust. Rheed Baldwin
singled scoring Moran who
also slid into home. At that
point Florida High had the
first of many mound confer-
ences.
Gabe Galloway got a hit
but was out at first. Baldwin
advanced off the hit and Sto-


vail scored. At the end of
three, the Dogs were in the
lead 3-1.
Moran got into trou-
ble in the fourth, he gave up
four runs. The Dog batters
came out in the bottom' of
the fourth down 3-5.
But Suwannee bounced
back. Yanossy, hot all night,
doubled. Moran hit a high
fly that three Florida High
fielders stood and watched
fall to the ground. Yanossy
showing some real hustle
scored. Florida High had an-
other mound conference.
Stovall walked to load the
bases with two outs. When
Baldwin stepped up to the
plate, Florida High trotted
out a new pitcher. The in-
ning ended with the score 4-
5.
Moran blew threw in a

Catch a little "Bass fever" at these large mouth fishing areas


When the going gets tough,
the tough go fishing. And
those looking for a challenge
Pse their bait to tackle Flori-
da's best known freshwater
fish, the largemouth bass.
This monster of the freshwa-
ter-world can weigh in at 20-
plus pounds and has become
the Sunshine State's most pop-
ular freshwater game fish.
"People like its aggressive
attitude. Largemouth bass will
go after almost any kind of ar-
tificial lure or live bait, and
they strike with explosive
force," said Wes Porak,
FWC's largemouth bass spe-
cialist. "In fact, the value of
the largemouth as a sport fish
has prompted a movement to-
wvard catch-and-release fishing
in many areas."
, Porak said spring is the best
time of year to catch bass,
when fish move into shallow
water to spawn. Spawning
may occur as early as January
in extreme south Florida and
as late as May in the panhan-
dle, but March and April are
peak months.
You can find these "bucket-
mouths" and other black bass
species in almost every body
of freshwater in Florida, so
with more than 7,500 lakes to
choose from, anglers face a
tough decision about where to
fish. To help narrow down
that list, FWC fisheries biolo-
gists recently selected their top
black bass fishing holes for
2005. They are, in no specific
order:
* Lake George: The sec-
ond-largest lake in the state,
Lake George is one of the pre-
mier largemouth bass fishing
lakes in central Florida. Hot
spots on the lake include Ju-
niper, Salt and Silver Glen
Spring runs along the western
shore. You can reel in trophy
bass during the spring spawn-
ing season using live shiners,
or try deep-diving crankbaits
near old dock structures along
the northeast shore and off
Drayton Island.
* Stick Marsh/Farm 13
Reservoir: This 6,500-acre
reservoir has become synony-
mous with trophy bass fish-
ing. Located near Fellsmere,
west of Vero Beach, it has be-
come one of the hottest bass
lakes in the country. Plastic
worms, spinnerbaits,
crankbaits, soft jerkbaits and
top-water propeller baits are
sure to catch any largemouth's
eye, but wild golden shiners
are the top choice for anglers
looking to reel in a trophy
fish. For bass, Stick
Marsh/Farm 13 Reservoir is
catch-and-release only.
West Lake
Tohopekaliga: This 18,810-
acre lake grabbed national at-
tention in 2001 when profes-
sional angler Dean Rojas

Federation, 800-THE-NWTF
This spring, deer, wild
turkey and other wildlife will
have a nicer, greener home on
5,000 acres in Starke, after
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission fire
crews use helicopters to com-
plete a controlled burn.
The Florida State Chapter of
the National Wild Turkey Fed-
eration donated more than
$2,150 to fund a controlled
burn project on Camp Bland-
ing, the Florida National
Guard's primary training facil-
ity. During the project, a FWC
helicopter crew will drop aeri-
al ignition devices, or plastic
spheres the size of pingpong
balls, filled with flammable
chemicals. After the balls
leave the helicopter they fall to
the ground and 20 to 30 sec-
onds later start to bur unwant-
ed waste vegetation that
chokes out new growth.
"Traditional methods of pre-


broke the all-time B.A.S.S.
tournament record for a total
weight with a catch of 108
pounds of bass. Anglers tar-
geting trophy bass will find
success in the spring using live
golden shiners inshore near
native vegetation or topped-
out hydrilla. North Steer
Beach, Brown's Point and
Goblet's Cove are popular
fishing spots on the lake, and
fishing Shingle Creek and St.
Cloud Canal can be outstand-
ing when flow is present
through these tributaries.
* Lake Kissimmee: This
35,000-acre lake is sure to
give your rod and reel a work-
out. A 2004 survey showed
anglers experienced an excel-
lent catch rate of 0.54 fish per
hour in spring. Strong winds
associated with last year's hur-
ricanes cleared vegetation
from some areas of the lake,
which allows anglers to fish
areas that had been inaccessi-
ble. The shoreline between C-
37 canal and the Pig Trail and
Lemon Point and Grassy Is-
land are examples of some of
the areas impacted by the
storms. Fly fishermen will en-
joy success wade fishing long
the miles of shoreline sur-
rounding this central Florida
lake.
* Rodman Reservoir: Dri-
ve east of Gainesville and
south of Palatka to access this
prime largemouth bass habi-
tat. The best technique for
catching trophy bass is to use
wild shiners, but anglers will
find success using a variety of
baits around river channel
bends from Kenwood to Cy-
press Bayou, as well as areas
in the main pool.
* Lake Tarpon: Fish rang-
ing in size from 12 to 16 inch-
es are plentiful in this 2,500-
acre Pinellas County lake, but
quality and trophy fish are pre-
sent in good numbers too. An-
glers will find most success
flipping or pitching plastic
worms along canal and bul-
rush edges. Offshore bass
fishermen who target ledges,
humps, coontail and eelgrass
beds can lure in some fish us-
ing shad-imitating jigs,
crankbaits, jerkbaits and top-
water baits.
SLake Weohyakapka:
Commonly know as Lake
Walk-in-Water, it could be re-
named Lake Reel-in-a-Lot.
Anglers frequently catch up to
25 bass a day, with several
ranging from four to eight
pounds. The lake also pro-
duces many trophy bass ex-
ceeding 10 pounds a year.
Pitching live wild shiners and
flipping soft plastic baits in the
bulrush ("buggy whips" or
"round rush") and cattails in
the northern and eastern areas
of the lake works like magic
through springtime. Spinner-

Q: I have arthritis and sometimes heave
trouble holding my toothbrush. Any
suggestions?
A: Arthritis is just one of the conditions
that create difficulty for people in caring
for their teeth. An injury, a cast, tennis
elbow or any one of numerous
circumstances can make brushing your
teeth something of a challenge. If gripping
the toothbrush is a problem, here are
some steps you might take: Try making
the handle bigger by wrapping it with tape
or an elastic bandage, like an Ace
bandage. Or you might tie a sponge
around the handle. You can also make the
handle longer by tying the toothbrush to
something like a Popsicle stick, tongue
depressor or ruler. For flossing, a number
of devices are available that make it
easier to manipulate the floss around and
between teeth. You also can tie floss into
a loop to make it easier to handle. Using
an electric toothbrush is another way to
ease the process of brushing. Talk to your
dentist about creative ways to make the
process of brushing and flossing easier if
you're struggling with a painful condition.

Electrofishing surveys found
bass concentrated in those ar-
eas during fall 2004. There is
a 15- to 24-inch protective slot
limit for bass on Lake Weo-
hyakapka.
* Lake Istokpoga: Al-
though bass fishing is excel-
lent throughout the year on
Lake Istokpoga, April and Oc-
tober are the best months for
anglers looking for cooler
weather to fill a cooler full of
bass. From January to April,
anglers will find spawning
bass in bulrush, cattail and
around the lake's two islands,
Big Island and Bumblebee Is-
land. Try flipping soft plastics
during this time of year. \Top-
water lures and jerkbaits work
best over the top of hydrilla
and pondweed in the south
half of the lake during spring


and summer. There is a 15- to
24-inch protective slot limit
for bass on Lake Istokpoga.
SDeer Point Lake: Those
looking to land some large-
mouths in the panhandle
should take a trip to Deer
Point Lake, where bass fishing
becomes red hot in April and
May. Anglers unfamiliar with
Deer Point should try fishing
in the old creek channels of
Bear, Cedar and Econfina
creeks with plastic worms,
diving crankbaits or rattle-
traps. Bayou George and the
flats area at the confluence of
Bayou George and Deer Point
Lake are also popular large-
mouth bass sites.
* Suwannee River: Al-
though this waterway isn't
known for trophy largemouth
bass, anglers can expect good
catch rates and quality-size
fish. The smaller, but feisty,


Suwannee bass is plentiful
along most of this 213-mile
river system, and bass large
enough to qualify for FWC's
"Big Catch" Suwannee bass
certificates have been reeled
in on the Santa Fe.
Everglades Water Conser-
vation Areas 2 and 3: The
Everglades Water Conserva-
tion Areas (WCAs) are south
Florida marshlands intersected
with over 200 miles of canals.
WCA-2 has 210 square miles
of marsh, and WCA-3 covers
approximately 915 square
miles of marsh. Originally de-
signed for flood control and
water supply, the area pro-
vides some of the most leg-
endary largemouth bass fish-
ing in the country. The best
fishing is typically found in
the spring, when dropping
water levels concentrate fish
in canals. Anglers can hit their


peak in April with catch rates
as high as 4.1 bass per hour in
the L-67A canal.
Crescent Lake:
This 15,725-acre lake borders
the east side of Crescent City
on the Putnam/Flagler county
line. Crescent Lake flows into
the St. Johns River via Dunns
Creek on its north end. Past
electrofishing samples for
largemouth bass revealed one
of the highest catch rates
recorded for areas on the St.
Johns River. Largemouth bass
up to 20 inches long were well
represented in the sample, and
.good numbers of 8-pounds-or-
larger fish were collected.

FWC releases 2004 boating statistics


Florida's 2004 boating sta-
tistics are out, and again they
are sobering.
The number of registered
boats in Florida is at an all-
time high of 982,907 in 2004,
compared to 978,225 in 2003.
Boating fatalities jumped to
68 in 2004 from 64 in 2003. In
fact, fatality numbers have in-
creased slowly since 2000
when Florida had its lowest
number of boating fatalities in
many years.
Monroe County reported
the highest number of acci-
dents and injuries, 98 and 57
respectively. Pinellas County
reported the highest number
of fatalities with seven. Palm
Beach County reported the
highest property damage fig-
ures at $8.69 million, includ-
ing one incident that account-
ed for $8 million of that total.
The second-highest property
damage occurred in Miami-
Dade County with $1.2 mil-
lion.
Even the good news wasn't
really good. The statistic that
recreational boating accidents
dipped to 743 from 1,005 in
2003 reflects a change in the


amount of damage an accident
has to involve before it
counts. In 2003, an accident
had to involve $500 damage
to be included in the statistics.
They had to involve $2,000 in
damage to make the cut in
2004 due to a change in the
law.
Statistics indicate experi-
enced boaters may fall prey to
a false sense of security. In
fact, more than half the boat
operators involved in fatal
boating accidents last year
had more than 100 hours of
boat operation experience.
The typical boating acci-
dent victim is not a child or
adolescent. He's a 22- to 50-
year-old male with many
hours of experience in operat-
ing a vessel. In most cases, if
he sustained an injury, it was
not life-threatening. If he did
not survive the accident, most
likely he drowned, because he
thought it uncomfortable, un-
becoming or unnecessary to
wear a life jacket - even if he
couldn't swim. Drowning
continued to be the leading.
cause of death in Florida's
boating accidents (65 per-


cent).
FWC boating safety offi-
cials and officers encourage
boaters to consider life jackets
to be similar to seatbelts when
it comes to their life-saving
potential. New types of inflat-
able life jackets - especially
the waist-pack variety - are
lightweight and hardly notice-
able when worn.
"It simply makes sense to
wear one when you're on the
water," said FWC Capt.
Richard Moore. "It's like the
seatbelt in your car. If you
aren't wearing it when you
find yourself a few seconds
from a collision, you may
have waited too late."
Also, excessive alcohol use
continued to be the leading
cause of boating fatalities in
2004. The effects of alcohol
may be even greater on boat
operators than vehicle opera-
tors because the combination
of wave action, hot sun and
physical exertion from being
on the water compounds the
influence alcohol consump-
tion can have on people.
"As with cars on land, it's
always best for boats to be op-


rated by someone who hasn't
been consuming alcoholic
beverages," Moore said.
"Designated drivers can save
lives on boats, just like they
do on highways."
Moore said other sugges-
tions for having safe experi-
ences on Florida's waters in-
clude taking a boating safety
course, filing a float plan with
a friend or relative each time
you take to the water and
making sure you have the
proper safety equipment in
working order. For boat oper-
ators age 21 or younger, the
boater safety course is a re-
quirement - not merely a sug-
gestion - for legally operating
a vessel with 10 or more
horsepower in Florida.

FWC launches Portions of the Hickory Mound Unit of the


new hotline


for alligator


complaints


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) has launched
a new toll-free telephone
number to report nuisance al-
ligators. That number is 1-
866-FWC-GATOR (1-866-
392-4286) and should be the
primary telephone number
for alligator complaints,
available to customers
around the clock.
Alligators have shared
marshes, swamps, rivers and
lakes with humans for many
centuries in the southeastern
United States and are found
in all of Florida's 67 coun-
ties. There have been in-
creased interactions between
alligators and humans as
more and more people are
seeking homes on waterfront
property.
The FWC annually re-
ceives more than 15,000 alli-
gator-related complaints. The
agency removes more than
5,000 alligators each year
when the reptiles pose a
threat to humans or their
property.


There are many precau-
tionary measures people
should take to reduce the po-
tential for conflicts with alli-
gators. To learn more of the
"dos and don't" of dealing
with alligators, download the
"Living with Alligators"
brochure from
MyFWC.com/alligator.
Many Floridians have an
appreciation for these ancient
crocodilians and have
learned to coexist with them.
However, if you do encounter
an alligator that poses a
threat to people or property
and is more than four feet in
length, the FWC urges you to
call the new Nuisance Alliga-
tor Hotline. All alligator
complaints will be forwarded
to this new dedicated hotline.
Alligators are an important
part of Florida's heritage and
play a valuable role in the
ecology of the state's wet-
lands. Visit MyFWC.com/al-
ligator for more information
on alligator behavior and

ment Program.

Big Bend WMA to close for improvements


Access to the impound-
ment on the Hickory Mound
Unit of the Big Bend Wildlife
Management Area (WMA)
located in Taylor County will
be closed, beginning as early
as mid-April, for improve-
ments to the dike, according
to Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) officials.
"The reconstruction of the
impoundment dike is de-
signed to allow this structure
to withstand a 50-year storm
event by drastically reducing
the number of breaches that
have occurred in the past,"
explained David Nicholson,
District Biologist at the FWC
Big Bend Field Office in Per-
ry.
The major portions of the
construction project will in-
clude the installation of two
1,000-foot concrete geoweb
spillways, four 5' by 5' box
culverts, one aluminum water
control structure, and the
placement of approximately
8,672 tons of rip-rap material
to reinforce the dike in areas
that have been susceptible to


storm erosion in the past.
"These upgrades will also
allow biologists to have bet-
ter control over the flow of
water into and out of the im-
poundment, allowing FWC
staff to better manage for wa-
terfowl, and other wildlife
species. This increased man-
agement ability should allow
for higher quality recreation-
al opportunities in the fu-
ture," Nicholson explained.
While active construction
is taking place, the FWC will
need to close some roads on
the WMA beginning as early
as mid-April. The roads will
be closed for approximately
six months. These roads will
include portions of Coker
Road (south from the junc-
tion of Swartz Tram), Cow
Creek Grade (south from the
junction of Swartz Tram),
and Swartz Tram (between
Coker Road and Cow Creek
Grade) Nicholson said.
"The actual date of the clo-
sure is unknown," Nicholson
said. "We don't want to close
access to the area until the
contractor is on-site, which is


dependent on weather and
contract legalities. Once we
get a firm date, we will pub-
licize that.
"Locked gates will be in-
stalled to prohibit unautho-
rized vehicles from entering
the area. These road closures
will prohibit any vehicular
access to the Hickory Mound
Impoundment. Anyone
wanting to access the western
portion of the Hickory
Mound Unit must do so by
entering from County Road
14. Anyone wanting access to
the eastern portion of the
Hickory Mound Unit must do
so by entering the area via
Cow Creek Grade," Nichol-
son explained.
These road closures will be
necessary to ensure the secu-
rity of the contractors' equip-
ment and for the general safe-
ty of the public. The dike,
which also serves as the
perimeter road around the
impoundment, will be
breached in numerous points
throughout the project mak-
ing it impassable by foot or
vehicles, creating a potential


safety hazard. It should also
be noted that during active
periods of construction,
heavy traffic flow of equip-
ment may be observed along
Cow Creek Grade.
According to Nicholson,
this project is being funded
by FWC, Ducks Unlimited,
Taylor County, the National
Fish and Wildlife Founda-
tion, and a grant received
through the North American
Wetlands Conservation Act
(NAWCA).
"We realize that this WMA
is a high use area for crab-
bers, fisherman, hunters, and
other outdoor enthusiasts. As
such, we regret the inconve-
nience that our users will
have to endure, but we hope
that the improvements ob-
served in the future will out-
weigh any short-term incon-
veniences," Nicholson said.

mation on the Hickory

My "One More Cast" char-
ters have limited out the last
three days Sunday, Monday
and Tuesday fishing with live
shrimp, Assassin eels, and
live pinfish under 2.5-inch
CajunThunders with a 24-
inch leader, while fishing in
4.5-5.5 feet of water.
The Emerald Isle Assassin
eel accounted for 2/3 of our
fish, last Wednesday, when I
took Steve Kirkpatrick with
Tim and Aaron McCulley of
Cartersville, Ga. out and we
managed 14 keepers in 20+
knot W-I-N-D-S.
Sunday, live shrimp
'took o'er ,; tilhei" Tt of
choice, in the dirty water fol-
lowing the HOWL Saturday,
and produced a limit of 20
trout for Harry Hall of Per-
ry and this sons, Jeff from
Raleigh, North Carolina and
Mark of Orlando. We fished
the shrimp under a 2.5-inch
oval Cajun Thunder. The
falling tide produced the ma-
jority of our fish.
Monday and Tuesday, I
took Jeff Bloodworth of
Madison with his nephew
Brian Kent of Bethlehem,
West Virginia out, and we
limited each day. Monday we
had 15 trout weighing 23
pounds, while Tuesday, we
greatly improved our average
with 15 weighing in at just
over 33 pounds. The Cala-
casieu Brew eel by Assassin
and live shrimp took all our
trout Monday. Tuesday, we
landed several better fish, in-'
cluding one four-pound trout


for Brian on live pinfish,
again fished under the Cajun
Thunders.

the difference between them.
I believe Art is the first-
ever person I have met from
Idaho? So, I don't think any-
one will be very upset about
it? I can't really say I thought
anyone really lived there, un-
til now, as I don't know of
any colleges up there, or any
presidents from Idaho? Or
anyone who recalled a story
about Idaho. Or anyone who
moved here or anywhere from
Idaho ... If it wasn't for their
potato who would even know
about Idaho?
Anyway, Art, the guy from
Idaho, (right) caught 15 trout
and released them all from
four feet of water using Salt-
water Assassins and had a
blast too, while landing a
23.5-inch trout to top off his
catch!
Jason Grover and Beth
Baker of Madison had eight
keepers using candy corn As-
sassins under Cajun Thunders
from 4-5 feet of water Sun-
day.
Monday, Marshall Hughes
with Randy and Bert Hiers of
Valdosta, Ga. had 34
sheepshead caught on fiddler
crabs at the Steinhatchee
Reef.

a myth you must first have a
basic knowledge on what
functions are talking place
when using a fishfinder.
Conventional bottom-find-
ing sonar uses a transducer to
send ultrasonic sound waves,
'or pings' down through'water.
The pings bounce off the bot-
tom, and objects such as fish,
and are received back by the
same transducer. The trans-
ducer measures the amount of
time it takes echoes to return
from the ping and a built-in
computer organizes all of this
information and shows it on
the display screen.
Depending on the fishfinder
you use the transducer will
produce either a wide or nar-
row cone angle. Thinner cone
angles allow great target sepa-
ration and can detect greater
detail on underwater structures
but cover less water area. A
wide cone angle allows you to
scan more water as you move
in your boat but also lumps
readings together, making it
impossible to distinguish one
fish from the structure.
Imagine sitting in an an-
chored boat with' your fish
finder turned on. Picture in
your mind the transducer's
cone-shaped scanning area un-
der your boat. In order to print
a perfect arch, a fish will have
to enter the edge of the cone,
swim directly across the mid-


die, and pass out of the cone.
Instead of looking for the per-
fect arc I suggest concentrat-
ing on the length 6f the line as
well as it thickness when
searching for fish.
Bottom Line strives for the
best of both worlds by using a
transducer with a medium
cone angle and automatically
manipulating receiver sensi-
tivity and echo filtering to pro-
vide wider coverage in shal-
low water and narrower, more
detailed coverage in deeper
water.
One of the most underused
features on fishfinders is the
zoom button. The zoom fea-
ture allows you to separate
fish from the bottom or from
other underwater structures.
As discussed in the previous
article when determining be-
tween hard ands soft bottoms
the zoom feature can be a per-
fect aide. Fish hiding in isolat-
ed brush piles or between
rocks on the water bottom can
easily be seen when using the
zoom feature.
Once again practice and
choosing the right product for
you needs are the keys.
While the Bottom Line
NCC 5300 depth finder is a
perfect fit for me during tour-
naments a smaller unit may
suit your needs better. Famil-
iarize yourself with your
equipment and its capabilities
and you'll be catching your
limit every day.

Treatment for too little or too much thyroid hormone
Hormones from the thyroid gland affect virtually every organ system of
the body. In children, thyroid hormone is critical for normal growth and
development. In adults, the primary role of the thyroid is to maintain
normal metabolism. In most instances, substantial reservoirs of thyroid
hormone in the thyroid gland and blood provide consistent availability.
However, hypothyroidism (low thyroid) occurs when the reservoirs drop
to very low levels. Common symptoms of hypothyroidism include
weight gain, cold intolerance, dry skin, and depression. The goal of
therapy is to fine-tune oral dosing and restore normal levels of thyroid
hormone. Many types of oral tablets exist, but the most commonly
prescribed are Synthroid and Levoxyl.
Hyperthyroidism, when the body is exposed to too much thyroid hor-
mone, can be caused by a number of things. Recognizable symptoms
include an enlarged thyroid gland, extreme fat loss or abnormal distribu-
tion, and exopthalmos (protruding eyes). Treatment of hyperthyroidism
includes surgery, radioactive iodine or antithyroid medications (PTU and
Tapazole). Talk to your pharmacisct if you have questions about any of
these thyroid medications. 157544RS-F

The Racing Zone


Fain Skinner places eighth in Sunbelt Super Late Model 125 feature


Not too hot, not too cold,
blue skies and smiling faces
greeted the racers and fans
Saturday night at Ocala
Speedway. Twenty one of the
finest Super Late Model dri-
vers in Florida and Georgia
were in the pits for the 125 lap
Sunbelt Super Late Model 125
feature.
Only one car was not able to
qualify for the feature which
was Patrick Conrad of Cler-
mont.
Conrad had just bought the
car and was having problems
with handling when the rear-
end began acting funny. Parts
were needed but Conrad and
his crew decided it was better
to not race and take a chance
on damaging the car further
and instead get it ready for
Lakeland in two weeks.
Brian Finney of Merritt Is-
land, driving the Merritt Is-
land Air and Heat/Bob Steele
Chevrolet. was 12th out in
line to qualify and 12 was the
lucky number of the evening
as Finney ran a fast lap of
14.750. Fain Skinner of Live
Oak was second fastest with a
14.864 followed by Wayne
Anderson of Wildwood with a
14.902, Jason Boyd of Orlan-
do with a 14.960 and Jay Mid-
dleton of Lake City with a
14.971.
The cars were teched, the
top five stood, and Finney
pulled the 5 pill for the inver-
sion putting Jay Middleton on
the pole.
The crowd sent the racers
off to the green flag with a


huge wave and the race was
on. On the green Boyd
jumped out to the lead over
Middleton but it did not take
Middleton long to gain back
control and lead the pack fol-
lowed by Boyd, Wayne An-
derson, Fain Skinner and Bri-
an Finney.
A caution on lap 3 re-
bunched the field and the race
goes back green on lap 8 as
Middleton leads the way over
Boyd, Anderson, Skinner and
Finney. Lap 20 sees Kevin
Bryant of Dade City retire his
ride to the pits with mechani-
cal problems followed by
James Powell of Astor two
laps later retiring his ride into
the pits for the night. Eighteen
were now left in the feature.
By lap 27, Finney who was
running fifth as passed both
Anderson, Boyd and Skinner
for second and is setting his
eyes on Middeleton for the
lead. Top ten are Middleton,
Finney, Anderson, Boyd,
Skinner, Pratt, Jonny Kay, Jeff
Choquette, Scott Grossen-
bacher and Scotty Crockett.
Finney continues to reel in
Middleton for the most want-
ed spot "the lead" as it is evi-
dent that Travis Kittleson of
Merritt Island, not driving his
famous Bob Steele Chevy but
the Armstrong No. 57 Super
Late, is having problems with
the 57. Kittleson, whose en-
gine was not ready for the
Ocala race was offered the
Armstrong ride for the night,
Kittleson tried but went a lap
down on lap 41 and gave up


the ghost on lap 49.
Ryan Foster brings out the
caution on lap 48 as he spins.
Foster quickly corrects the car
and the race goes back to
green as Middleton still holds
the lead over Finney, Ander-
son, Boyd, Pratt, Kay, Skin-
ner, Choquette, Grossenbach-
er and Crockett.
Choquette puts the heat on
Skinner and takes over sev-
enth as Crockett follows thru
in eighth and Skinner slides
back to ninth. Lap 62 sees the
yellow as Jeff Scofield retires
to the pits for some crew at-
tention. Just as the green flag
is shown to restart the race,
Scofield returns to the racing
groove causing the leaders,
Middleton and Finney, to spin
wildly to avoid Scofield's car.
Middleton rips off a tire and
breaks an A-arm and is done
for the night after leading for
over half the race. Finney has
a little sheet metal dents but is
fine to go and Scofield is sent
to the pits for the night since
drivers were told at the dri-
ver's meeting that they could
not return to the track under
green since it is too danger-
ous. They have to wait for a
yellow flag to return.
The race goes back green on
lap- 79 with Finney, Ander-
son, Boyd, Pratt, Kay, Crock-
ett, Johnson, Choquette, Web-
ster and. Grossenbacher in the
top ten. Johnson puts the heat
on and takes over fifth as Kay
slides back to seventh. But
Crockett then finds some mus-
cle taking over fifth from


Johnson. Now it is Finney,
Anderson, Boyd, Pratt, Crock-
ett, Johnson, Choquette, Web-
ster, Grossenbacher, Skinner
and Kay.
The track is heating up and
the action is getting very tight
as Scott Grossenbacher spins
on lap 94. The race is red
flagged since one of the cars is
dripping oil and the track
needs some crew attention.
The okay is given that "all oil
is up" but on the restart, it is
evident that oil is still on the
track as the leader first gets in
it followed by Anderson. The
cars are slipping in turns 1 and
2 and the race is red flagged
for the second time to inspect
the cars and the track.
Ryan Foster definitely is
dripping oil and is sent into
the pits for some crew atten-
tion. The track is once again
given the okay to race as
Wayne Anderson leads the
way over Boyd, Pratt, Finney,
and Crockett.
Anderosn and Boyd are get-
ting hot and heavy at each oth-
er for the lead and over in
turns 1 and 2, Finney makes a
big move seeing this action
and passes both cars and sails
away in the lead. No one was
paying attention to Finney but
watching Anderson and Boyd
going hot and heave. Once
again, Brian Finney has taken
back the lead with Anderson,
Pratt, Boyd and Crockett in
hot pursuit. Lap 113 sees the
caution as Jonny Kay and Mac
Johnson get together coming
off 4 sending Kay hard into


the frontstretch wall. This was
Kay's first race for the 2005
season with a really outstand-
ing new paint scheme and Kay
was not happy. Kay was
towed off the field after giving
Johnson a few "why's".
No more caution laps are
counted and we are down to
the last 10 green flag laps.
The race goes back green on
lap 115 as Finney maintains
the point over Anderson, Pratt,
Boyd and Crockett.
Pratt finds the pedal and
pushes it to the metal and
passes Anderson taking over
second. Pratt is fast but not


fast enough to catch Finney
who takes the checkered for
his first win in the Sunbelt Su-
per Late Model Series.
Finney, who is an elemen-
tary school teacher at Tropical
Elementary on Merritt Island,
was joined in Winner's Circle
by his family and crew but
also by one of the students at
Tropical who was all smiles.
This was the moment both
Finney and the student had
wanted for some time.
The Sunbelt Super Late
Models return to action April
30th at USA International in
Lakeland, Florida.

FWC seeks public input

regarding tide swamp WMA


At the February meeting of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC), commissioners ap-
proved changing the Spring
Creek Unit of the Big Bend
Wildlife Management Area
(WMA) from a dog hunt area
to a still hunt area.
Because of that loss of pub-
lic land available for deer-dog
hunting, commissioners were
asked to consider allowing
deer-dog hunting on the Tide
Swamp Unit, located in Taylor
County. The commissioners
directed staff to work with peo-
ple with an interest in this issue
to determine if the change is
feasible.
The first step in the process
was to send out a mass mailing
to everyone who had applied
for a quota hunt permit on the
Tide Swamp or Spring Creek
units for the 2004-2005 sea-
son. The letter, sent to more
than 650 hunters, explained the
process and requested input.
"I want to emphasize that
this is an information collect-
ing process. Nothing has been
decided at this point," said
John Ault, FWC North Central


Regional Public HuntingAreas
Coordinator. "We aie looking
for public input on this issue."
"FWC is aware there are
hunters who oppose allowing
deer-dog hunting on the Tide
Swamp Unit and others who
support it. Everyone's views
on this issue are important to
the Commission," Ault ex-
plained. "No one is excluded
from this opportunity to pro-
vide input, even if you didn't
apply for a quota hunt permit
on either area.
"We're asking for people to
indicate whether they would
support or oppose allowing
deer-dog hunting on the Tide
Swamp Unit. It's important
that folks list their reasons for
either supporting or opposing a
change," Ault said.
"Responses will not be con-
sidered as votes, but will be
used to help the Commission
better understand the public's
point of view," Ault explained.
"Our next step will be to
compile two lists of the re-
sponses (supporting deer-dog
hunting and opposing deer-dog
hunting) and present them at
two 'open houses.' We are


planning on an open house in
Perry and in the Pinellas/Hills-
borough County area. Approx-
imately 60 percent of the
hunters who received a Tide
Swamp quota hunt permit in
2004, reside in Pinellas, Pasco,
Hillsborough or Polk County.
.The dates, times and locations
for these open houses have yet
to be determined," Ault said.
"All the data collected
from the responses and from
the open houses will be used
by staff to develop their rec-
ommendations, which will be
presented to the Commis-
sioners at a future meeting.
If any changes are adopted,
they would become effective
July 1, 2006, for the 2006-
2007 hunting season," said
Ault.
Please send your input to:
John Ault, Regional Public
Hunting Areas Coordinator

Conservation Commission

Lake City, FL 32055

Q:





A:


I have laminate wood flooring that always
looks dull and shows everything...streaks,
dog prints, etc. What can I use to protect a
nice sheen on it without every little thing
showing and not having it look so dull?

I have to wonder if the problem is a film
lhat has dCCtllmtljted I'Ot w\a'.hing the lhoo
with soap and water. If you have tried to
use a laminate floor cleaner, and have had
no success. It may be time to have the floor
inspected by a Live Oak Paint Center rep.
It may be a warranty issue.

cost prohibitive on bums this
large," said Larry Perrin,
FWC wild turkey programs
coordinator. "With the help of
the NWTF, we're able to use a
helicopter to do a large bum in
a short period of time."
Before technicians can start
a prescribed bur conditions
have to be near perfect.
Prescribed burning is most
effective during late March
and early April when shrubs
and saplings start to bloom.
These months are also prime
for spring turkey hunting and
when turkeys are starting to
nest. A common mispercep-
tion is that prescribed bums
are detrimental to wild turkey
populations because they bum
lots of wild turkey nests.
However, studies indicate oth-
erwise.
"Research in northcentral
Louisiana shows that most
hens nest somewhere less
brushy than areas selected for
burning," said Brian Zielinski,
NWTF regional biologist in
Florida. "Hens prefer to nest
in grassy, open areas where
they can blend in and feel
safe. They really like to nest in
prescribed burs that are two
or three years old."
While it is true that some
nests are lost during pre-
scribed burs, in general, the
benefits of improved habitat
outnumber the few burned
nests. In fact, even if a nest is
lost, hens will likely renest.
"Up to two-thirds of hens
that lose their nests will ren-
est," said Zielinski. "There's
no real reason to believe that
prescribed burning will hurt


wild turkey populations. Real-
ity is that prescribed bums im-
prove wild turkey habitat and
that helps populations."
Prescribed fire also makes
forests safer from wildfire, be-
cause it removes waste plant
build up from the ground in a
controlled manner. If plant
build up is not removed, con-
ditions can become right for
large wildfires that threaten
wildlife, homes and humans.
"Prescribed burning is a
great way to keep large wild-
fires from happening," said
Dennis Daniel, national coor-
dinator Making Tracks with
the Forest Service. "Managing
our forests with cool-burning
prescribed fires makes better
wildlife habitat and keeps our
neighbors safe. This is a great
example of what can happen
when conservation groups
unite forces with state and
federal agencies."
Since 1985, the Florida
State Chapter has spent nearly
$1.6 million on a variety of
conservation, education and
hunting projects. Last y6ar,
they spent nearly $236,000 to:
* Enhance wildlife habitat.
* Introduce children to hunt-
ing and the outdoors.
* Offer scholarships to high
school seniors interested in
hunting and conservation.
* Provide education boxes
to teach conservation and the
comeback story of the wild


turkey to schools.

About the NWTF: In 1973,
when the National Wild
Turkey Federation was found-
ed, there were an estimated
1.3 million wild turkeys and
1.5 million turkey hunters.
Thanks to the work of wildlife
agencies and the NWTF's
many volunteers and partners,
today there are 6.8 million
wild turkeys and nearly three
million turkey hunters. Since
1985, more than $193 million
NWTF and cooperator dollars
have been spent on over
29,000 projects benefiting
wild turkeys throughout North
America.
The NWTF is a nonprofit
organization with nearly
525,000 members in 50 states
and 12 foreign countries. It
supports scientific wildlife
management on public, pri-
vate and corporate lands as
well as wild turkey hunting as
a traditional North American
sport.

eration, call 803-637-3106,

ian Do you suffer

re from a sleep

disorder?
Sleep: We all need it, want it,
crave it, but never seem to get
enough of it. Most sleep re-
searchers say that the average
number of hours a person
needs each day is between 71/2
to 81/2. Yet, most of us fall
short of that number and sur-
vive on much less, which can
make us tired, cranky and irri-
table. Other, more serious con-
sequences related to lack of
sleep include problems with
concentration and memory, be-
havioral, learning or social is-
sues, frequent infections,
T blurred vision, and the inability
to tolerate stress.
ve What's the culprit for lack of
sleep? The most common and
ill obvious reason is living a hec-
tic lifestyle. Most of us are so
overworked and over-sched-
uled these days that there are
never enough hours in the day
for unwinding, much less
sleeping. Other reasons range
from bringing home a new
baby, to getting in that last
workout before the gym closes,
to drinking caffeinated or alco-
5 holic beverages before bed-
ia C time. And let's not forget about
be the stressful events or crises we
endure in our lives -- the loss of
a job, the death of a loved one,
a divorce, etc. -- which are
common causes of insomnia, a
type of sleep disorder. Whatev-
er your reasons are for not get-
ting in your full eight hours, the
fact remains that you are sleep
deprived, and sleep deprivation

ph.sicLil drain on the body if
left tlnaddressed.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
If oau feel you aren't getting
enough sleep and have any of
the aforementioned symptoms,
keep a log that contains signs
and symptoms and their dura-
tion, situations affecting your
sleep, medications you are tak-
ing, your diet, etc. See your
doctor if symptoms persist --
you may have a sleep disorder.
Sleep disorders are often over-
looked because the\, have com-
mon symptoms -- snoring,
waking up feeling grqggy,
sweaty or with a headache --

that can easily be explained by
other possible factors. If left
unchecked and untreated,
sleep disorders can cause seri-
ous health problems. Treat-
ments for sleep disorders vary
but can include psychological
counseling as well as medica-
tion.
TYPES OF SLEEP
DISORDERS
To familiarize yourself with
what constitutes a sleep disor-
der, here is a rundown of the
more common ones and their
symptoms, courtesy of Sleep-
net.com, an online informa-
tional resource on sleeping.
* Sleep Apnea: a breathing
disorder during sleep due to
lack of oxygen. Accompanied
by loud snoring, it consists of
brief periods throughout the
night when breathing actually
stops. There are two types:
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (the
most common) is due to an ob-
struction in the throat during
sleep. Bed partners notice
pauses of approximately 10 to
60 seconds between loud
snores.
Central Sleep Apnea is
caused by a delay in the signal
from the brain to the lungs.
With both obstructive and cen-
tral sleep apnea, you must
wake up briefly to breathe,
sometimes hundreds of times
during the night. Usually, there
is no memory of these brief

awakenings.
* Insomnia: having difficul-
ty falling asleep, having no
problem falling asleep but dif-
ficulty staying asleep, or wak-
ing up too early. There are
three basic types: Transient in-
somnia (lasting for a few
nights); Short-term insomnia
(two to four weeks of poor
sleep); and Chronic insomnia
(poor sleep that happens most
nights and last a month or
longer). Transient and short-
term insomnia generally occur
in people who are temporarily
experiencing stress, environ-
mental noise, extreme temper-
ature changes, sleep schedule
problems such as those due to
jet lag, and medication side ef-
fects.
Chronic insomnia is more
complex and often results from
a combination of factors, in-
cluding underlying physical or
mental disorders. One of the
most common causes of chron-
ic insomnia is depression.
However, chronic insomnia
may also be due to behavioral
factors, including the misuse of
caffeine, alcohol, or other sub-
stances; disrupted sleep/wake
cycles; and chronic stress.
* Narcolepsy: a chronic dis-
order affecting the brain where
regulation of sleep and wake-


fulness takes place, causing an
irresistible need to sleep. Nar-
coleptics can fall asleep while
at work, talking, or driving a
car. These "sleep attacks" can
last from 30 seconds to more
than 30 minutes. Narcolepsy is
caused by hereditary along
with some environmental fac-
tors.
* Sleep Bruxism (nocturnal
bruxism): a movement disor-
der characterized by grinding
or clenching of the teeth during
sleep which may cause abnor-
mal wear of the teeth.
* Hypersomnia (excessive
sleepiness):. an excessively
deep or prolonged major sleep
period that may be associated
with difficulty in waking be-
lieved to be caused by the cen-
tral nervous system. Symp-
toms include long sleep peri-
ods, excessive sleepiness or
excessively deep sleep.
* Restless Legs Syndrome
(RLS): a discomfort (crawling,
tingling or prickling sensation)
of the legs, which is relieved
by movement or stimulation of
the legs. Symptoms occur
when riding in a car, watching
TV, reading, sitting (in a movie
theater for example), or by pe-
riods of inactivity -- like when
lying in bed trying to fall
asleep.

nizing the danger presented to
the public by defective vehi-
cle equipment, troopers will
concentrate their efforts on
vehicles being operated with
defects such as bad brakes,
worn tires and defective light-

Reduce stress and go
gaga over Yoga
Jaime Blanda works long hours as an accountant in New York City. Instead of
vegging out in front of the tube or wolfing down a pint of ice cream to release
stress, she turns
to yoga.
"It's an opportunity to unwind and indulge your body and mind simultaneously,"
Blanda says.
Young and old, male and female, yoga has become the "it" workout. It makes
sense - this physical and spiritual workout exercises tl body, clears the mind
and controls stress. Some styles of yoga focus on holding postures for a long time
and others link postures into one flow. Regardless, all styles combine physical
postures called "asanas," breathing exercises called "pranayamas," and meditation
to promote a calm mind and strong body.
Christina Hartman of Washington, D.C., has a stressful job at a nonprofit agency.
But, she finds that yoga relaxes her, even after the craziest of days. "Doing yoga
with a group of people lets me feed off the positive energy of others," Hartman
says. "The effects of that are amazing - I feel so open and lifted inside and out."
It's easy to get started. Take a yoga class at your local gym or yoga center. When
choosing a class,
observe it and speak
to the instructor.
Make sure you like
the teacher, the class
fits your personality
and it's a classroom
that you can get
comfortable in. Once
you've chosen one,
give it a dry run
before committing
since being a
spectator is different .
than actually
participating in the
class.
Get gaga over yoga
by educating yourself
Hatha yoga is a
general term
referring to all the
styles of yoga; each
style has a different
name and emphasis.
Styles vary in their
focus on body .M. .
alignment, breathing RELAX YOUR body and mind With one of the many styles of yoga.
rituals and breathing
coordination with postures. The style you choose depends on your psychological
needs and physical abilities.
Ananda - A classical and gentle style that seeks to awaken, experience and
control the energies, ananda emphasize breathing and deep relaxation. Those
energies are then used to harmonize the body, mind and emotions.
Anusara - This yoga is spiritually inspiring, but grounded in a knowledge of
outer and inner body alignment.
Ashtanga - This athletic and intense style has participants jump from one posture
to another to build strength, flexibility and stamina.
Bikrams - Shbw how much you can sweat in this style. The heat is turned up to
90 to 100 F to help soften muscles and ligaments. More than 25 asanas are done
twice, making for an intense workout.
Integral - This style combines postures, breath control, prayer, chanting and
meditation into a single approach. It's a series of gentle postures followed by deep
relaxation, a breathing sequence and ending with meditation.
Iyengar - Standing is so simple but requires more concentration than you think;
it's harder than you may imagine to keep your body on top of your legs. This style
emphasizes proper alignment of the spine and placement pf the hips and feet and
focusing on the individual needs and physical limits of each person.
Kripalu - Focus on breathing, alignment and coordinating the two with this
"yoga of consciousness." Each style features different intensities of the poses,
ranging from gentle to moderate to vigorous.
Kundalini - This highly spiritual style involves classic poses, breathing, chanting
and meditation and the
coordination of breath, movement and meditation. It seeks to unify mind and body
as students attain a higher sense of consciousness.
Power - This vigorous and athletic style seeks to build energy from its
demanding poses.
Sivananda - This style starts with a forceful beginning and offers an overall
moderate workout. It follows a set structure of pranayama, classic asanas and
relaxations.
Svaroopa Yoga - Learn different ways of doing familiar poses by beginning at
the tailbone and progressing through each spinal area, promoting healing and
transformation of the body and mind.
Viniyoga - The name literally means "an organized course of yoga." Postures are
customized to the physical needs and limits of these student. Seeking to offer a
deep respect to the individual and his body, postures focus on the spine and
breathing.

When it comes to keeping family connected, women take the lead


She's the granddame of the
family -- the family matri-
arch. Tradition paints her as
the dignified, commanding
and senior female head of the
family. She's the grandmoth-
er whose house we travel to
for roast turkey and pumpkin
pie. She's also the young
mom with a camera in hand
and a toddler slung on her hip
or the baby boomer sister
with a flair for fun and a high-
speed modem. When it comes
to crowning the family matri-
arch, only one quality is
clearly necessary - an unde-
niable desire to preserve fam-
ily relationships and keep the
family connected.
Why women?
It would be an injustice to
men to say that they have no
interest in gathering and com-
municating with their extend-
ed family. Nevertheless, there
seems to be something to
those stereotypically female
multi-tasking, emotional
qualities that prompt more
women than men to be the
family relationship caretakers
and organizers. On average,
studies have shown that
women communicate more
often with family. Women are
also more likely than men to
initiate gatherings.
"Generally, it is true that
women are more interested in
organizing family communi-
cations, reunions and gather-
ings," says Laurence Basiri-
co, Ph.D., professor of sociol-
ogy and interim dean of Inter-
national Programs for Elon
College in North Carolina.
"Despite the growing rate of
two-income households,
women still feel the emotion-
al responsibility pf handling
the family stuff. And most
women enjoy it and are good
at it."
According to a poll con-
ducted by Harris Interactive
for Modern Woodmen of
America, a fraternal benefit
society offering-financial ser-
vaide. thie mniaori, of mien


and women at-
tend holiday
events (93 per-
cent); howev-
er, women are
more inclined
than men to -
gather with ex-
tended family
at other times -
during the
year.
"While men
and women
both agree that
relationships
with extended
family mem-
bers are im-
portant, the 3 .
survey shows
that women i '"
have an edge
over men *
when it comes
to attending family functions
and pursuing communication
opportunities," says Sharon
Snawerdt of Modern Wood-
men, which promotes strong
family relationships through
member programs as well as
its Web site, www.gather-
ings.info. "For instance, 55
percent of women in our sur-
vey attended family gather-
ings seven to 11 times a year,
compared to 40 percent of
men."
This difference in the sexes
is not something new, accord-
ing to Basirico.
"In contemporary society,
we are socialized into think-
ing that women should fulfill
the role of keeper and orga-
nizer of the family relation-
ships," says Basirico, author
of "The Family Reunion Sur-
vival Guide: How to Avoid
Problems with Your Family
without Avoiding Your Fami-
ly," and the most recent plan-
ner of his own family re-
union. "For many women, the
connection between them and
their children is different than
the connection between the
father and the children. This
coimeis roiom. literally, having


given birth to them. Even
women who don't feel this
connection may feel the pres-
sure to take on this role, even
if they are not the best at it."
Women who take
the lead and love it
Who's the matriarch? Ac-
cording to Basirico, today's
matriarchs appear to be obliv-
ious to age and experience.
"I don't know if, anymore,
there are any real characteris-
tics that mark a person as the
matriarch," he says. "These
days it is more a matter of
who is willing to do it. Who
has the time, the interest and
the resources?"
Mary Connelly Kegelman,
of Wilmington, Del., is one of
those women who excels at
being the caretaker of the
family connection and is def-
initely qualified as the matri-
arch of the family. Her hus-
band Matthew agrees with
her in the importance of host-
ing family gatherings, but
when it comes down to man-
aging the details, Mary takes
the lead.
"We are both retired," says
the 74-year-old Kegelman
'who was named the liiii-'


Mother of the Year by Ameri-
can Mothers Inc. "Together
we keep the family get-to-
gethers going, but I am the in-
stigator. My husband is in-
valuable in supporting me."
She laughs, "He is the one
that gets to move tables and
chairs around."
Their brood of 10 children
and 20 grandchildren gather
at least once a month at the
Kegelman's home to cele-
brate birthdays and holidays.
"These gatherings are real-
ly the mechanism for keeping
our family close," says
Kegelman. "They are very
important to us."
While Amy Anderson of
Boerne, Texas, is not the fam-
ily matriarch, she can see her-
self assuming a more active
role in planning family gath-
erings and communication
activities as the years go by.
The parents of 18-month-old
Benjamin, Anderson and her
husband Nathan delved head
first into the family reunion
business this past fall. With
her husband's sister, they are
in charge of the 30th annual
reunion of her mothe'r-in-
'IW's t'amil\, whichh typically


attracts about
40 family
members and
will take place

of 2005.
",-" - A n d e r s o n
relies on Web
S .,- sites such as
S www.gather-
ings.info to
generate ideas
and organize
the details.
Rallying the
family
around the
matriarch(s)
Because
families are so
S:'busy, today's
matriarchs
must be flexi-
ble and strate-
gically utilize
the talents found among other
members of the family.
Rule 1: Have a plan and
delegate, delegate, delegate
"I couldn't do it alone,"
says Kegelman. "I do a lot of
the cooking, and we usually
host the event at our home,
but my husband, children and
grandchildren all contribute."
It helps to keep the details
simple and predictable. Some
family matriarchs generate a
schedule for rotating the re-
sponsibility of who hosts the
Christmas dinner or reunion
every year. Others create a
standard plan for who pro-
vides what, on the menu for
every gathering. Still others
designate family members as
official photographer or game
planner.
"Each person has one thing
they do best, whether it is a
special dish or game," stress-
es Kegelman. "We have a for-
mat that works well."
Rule 2: Make fun
the priority
Kegelman feels being the
matriarch doesn't mean she
has to be controlling. "I try
not to give orders or advice
until asked;"' she says. "1 got a


lot of that as a young mother
and I remember how I felt.
My children and grandchil-
dren make their own choices
in life. I need to respect that.
That is the key to being re-
spected in return."
Anderson and Kegelman
both acknowledge that while
organization, timelines and
delegation of responsibility is
important, they strive to keep
it all in the context of fun.
For Anderson, planning the
next family function is the
opportunity to let the creative
juices flow.
The Modern Woodmen
survey indicated that women
are the great communicators
in the family. According to
the results, women are more
inclined to keep on top of
family news and use the
phone, letters and email more
often than men. In fact,
women are using technology
to their benefit for this pur-
pose. Eighty-one percent of
women see email, the Inter-
net, family bulletin boards or
Web sites as ways to stay in
touch with extended family
members as compared to 67
percent of men. Internet
providers' marketing strate-
gies corroborate this finding.
Women are their biggest tar-
get market group in promot-
ing the communication value
of the Internet. Even senior-
aged women have mastered
the technology to use it to
stay in touch with their fami-
lies.
A merry matriarchy
Whether you're the matri-
arch, a matriarch-in-training
or simply a family member
standing able and ready to as-
sist the woman (or women) in
charge, remember to keep the
ultimate goal in mind: Work
together to keep the family
together.
"The food and everything
else is important," concludes
Kegelman. "But the best part
is just having the opportunity
to talk and laugh together."

Dear Classified Guys,
I run a family owned business and
contrary to my first impression, I
hired my son-in-law as the Shipping
Manager for our company. It wasn't
long before his poor performance
started showing. Many of my cus-
tomers were calling to complain of '
incorrect orders or late delivery. Now
I find myself in a dilemma. I placed an
ad in the newspaper for his replace-
ment and found a much better appli-
cant. I even had my son-in law
interview the guy hoping he would
get the idea, but that backfired. Now
he thinks he's being promoted. Any
ideas on how to let him know he
should start looking for
another job?
Cash: That depends.
How well is the marriage to y.u
daughter going?
Carry: To be honest, it sounds like
you took a risk with your sonn-ilaw
from the beginning. Then, placing an
ad in the newspaper and hoping he'd
get the hint when interviewing the
applicant was not a very professional
way to handle the situation.
Cash: If your son-in-law doesn't
realize that he's about to be fired, he
probably has no idea that he's doing a
poor job at your company either.
Before you replace him, you may want


TE







Duane "Cash" lHoze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


rF


,P4/10/05
�2005 The Classified Guys�


to discuss his job performance so he
can understand what he is doing
wrong.
Carry: Considering he's part of your
family, he's certainly deserving of that.
Maybe he can correct his erroneous
shipping methods.
Cash: As the owner of the company,
it's important you set a good manage-
ment example. For starters, you should
be handling your son-in-law as you
would any other employee. Give him
specifics on what's going wrong and
how to improve. Let him know what
you expect from him in his position.
Carry: Put the expectations in writ-
ing so it is clearly understood. That


way if he still doesn't perform the job
functions, it is much easier to discuss in
the future.
Cash: And make sure what happens
at the office stays.at the office. Avoid
bringing up his job performance at
home or over a dinner table.
Carry: You may also find from your
conversations that your son-in-law has
talents in departments other than ship-
ping. Find out what his goals are and
maybe you can have him work some-
where else in your company instead of
letting him go.
Cash: However, if he is truly prone
to making mistakes, certainly don't put
him in your accounting department.


Family Matters
Thinking of hiring family into the
business? It's done more often than you
think. You don't have to look far for
examples. Donald Trump hired his chil-
dren into the family real estate business.
Dr. Phil helped his son find ajob in
Hollywood. And names like the
Kennedy's or George Bush are self-
explanatory. Adding family employees
often results in stronger family bonds and
offers dedicated workers or successors.
Stock Up
Wal-Mart, Ford and Motorolla.
Combined they have annual sales
exceeding 400 billion dollars and are
traded daily on the NY Stock Exchange.
However, they have even more in com-
mon. All of them started out as family
owned and are still family run today.
Wal-Mart was started by San Walton
and is run today by his son Robson, age
59. Ford Motor Company is on its fourth
generation of family headed by William
Ford Jr. And Motorolla, founded by Paul
Galvin, is now run by'his grandson,
Christopher, age 51.
Got a question, funny story, or just want to give
us your opinion? Let us hear it. Leave a
message toll-free at (888) 242-3644 or send to:
P.O. Box 8246, New Fairfield, CT 06812.


Ship Shape
I work for a small manufacturing
company and for the past few weeks we
have been plagued with shipping prob-
lems. First we shipped a large order to
the wrong location. Then we missed an
important deadline for a brand new cus-
tomer. Worse, we accidentally shipped a
customer's product to his competitor.
So one Monday morning it was nice
to hear the president of the company get
on the PA system and say, "I'd like to
thank everyone. Last week, we shipped
all of our orders with absolutely no
errors."
As the employees cheered, the presi-
dent then added, "And to our Shipping
Manager, Joe, I'd like to thank you for
being on vacation last week."
(Thanks to Chris H.)


Wonder if this should
be in the personals section.

A few tips for


drying up home


moisture problems


It's an enemy many
homeowners continuously
battle. An intruder that can't
be seen or heard but is felt
lurking throughout their
homes...moisture. Homes
with excessive moisture are
susceptible to musty odors,
peeling paint, stains on walls,
damp floors, and
condensation on windows and
cold surfaces. But more
importantly, the health of the
home's occupants is at risk
due to possible exposure to
allergens that can bring about
a variety of ailments.
One of the major causes of
excessive home moisture is a
lack of ventilation.
Homeowners are sealing and
insulating their houses so
tight the natural exchange of
air on each side of the wall is
being eliminated, trapping
any condensation that might
arise from temperature
changes and providing an
ideal breeding ground for
moisture related bacteria.
Consider taking the
following actions so you can
enjoy a well-ventilated, dry,
healthy living environmerit:
* Open windows and doors
when possible to air out your
house.
* Use fans and exhaust
vents to circulate air and
reduce condensation. Due to
high levels of water usage,
showers, kitchens and laundry
areas should all be equipped
with outwardly vented
exhaust fans.
* Choose building or
remodeling products designed
to regulate moisture. One
such product is Crane
Performance Siding's
CraneBoard Solid Core


Siding. This alternative to
natural wood or fiber cement
exterior siding features the
company's new, patent-
pending SmartTrack
technology, an enhancement
to their time-tested Solid Core
backing. Crane's Solid Core
backing insulation is
breathable -- moisture
evaporates as it passes
through the panel. SmartTrack
channels now add an extra
level of assurance. This
diagonal series of grooves
guide any excess moisture
away through "release-holes"
at the bottom of the panel.
* Check the condition of
your roof at least twice a year.
Look for the slightest
punctures, cracks or breaks
that may result in future
problems. Also inspect rain
gutters, downspouts and
extensions for leaks.
* Regularly inspect
windows, doors and
foundations for excessive air
infiltration or any water
seepage. Be sure to repair or
replace damaged or worn
caulk, weather stripping,
glazing, window seals or door
seals.
* Purchase a dependable
portable dehumidifier with
humidity control. Be sure to
clean the unit regularly to
prevent mold growth.
Taking these simple steps
can help protect your home
from cosmetic moisture
damage, and eliminate an
environment where allergens
can flourish.

\Vh\ not (Lne \our trjdiltional baking recipe-
and stgir. deser- a "inmjkeoer?'" W\\'hen \uu're looking
for great tasting treats with less sugar that your family can bake togeth-
er, try a new baking blend.
This combination of sugar and sucralose, a sweetener that is 600 times sweet-
er than sugar, can be used like sugar in cookies, cakes, mousses and desserts of
all kinds. When you use 1/2 cup of the new baking blend in place
of 1 cup sugar, you will have results that have the same sweetness as a full
sugar recipe as well as great texture and taste. Yet, you'll have fewer calories
and carbohydrates and often a "lighter" nutritional profile.
Now that sweet treats can be prepared with less sugar, your family can happily
make and enjoy the desserts they love. Get your kids in the kitchen to learn a
new way to make cookies and other goodies with a Splenda delicious touch.
