ASK DR.MANTOOTH


Q: What do I need to know about
toothpaste?
A: The first thing to know is to buy
toothpaste that displays the ADA seal of
acceptance. This means the American
Dental Association has cleared the
product both for safety and effectiveness.
You want to make sure the toothpaste
has fluoride, which remains the number
one anti-cavity ingredient for both children
and adults. Approved toothpaste will also
contain a mild abrasive to help remove
plaque. Some toothpaste is labeled for
tartar control, which can help prevent
tarter from forming above the gum line.
Look on the label for triclosan, which can
help combat gingivitis, which is the early
stage of gum disease. If your gums have
already receded a bit, you might look for
toothpaste that contains a desensitizing
ingredient, namely potassium nitrate, that
will reduce any pain you might feel when
your teeth are exposed to hot or cold food
or liquid. Approved toothpaste might also
include a whitening agent.
Talk to your dentist about choosing the
toothpaste that's right for your needs.

subject "in a defensive man-
ner to distance" himself from
McEndree and deployed his
air Taser, striking McEndree
in the chest area. During this
time Watson called dispatch
and asked for assistance.
McEndree fell to the ground
then got up and pulled the
probes from his body and
headed towards the deputy,.
Watson said, at which time
Watson said he used the touch
phase of the Taser to stop
McEndree. Watson said he
took the man to the ground
where McEndree continued to
resist and pulled the deputy's
transmitter mike off his uni-
form shirt with his hand and
McEndree placed the mike
underneath him, preventing
the deputy from calling for
further assistance. Watson
was finally able to get control
of the subject, handcuffing
him and taking him into cus-
tody and then recovering his
mike.
Both the deputy arid the de-
fendant received minor in-
juries during the incident.
Deputy Watson arrested
McEndree on charges of bat-
tery on a law enforcement of-
ficer, resisting an officer with
violence and depriving a law
enforcement officer of his
means of communication.


McEndree was placed in the
Suwannee County Jail by
Live Oak Police Officer Al-
fredo Moreno where his bond
has been set at $20,000.

Guests for the very warm,
personal and often humorous
ceremony seemed to feel at
ease as they gathered to wish
Fina well in his appointment
to the Third Circuit judgeship
for the next two years. Florida
Gov. Jeb Bush appointed Fina
to the job March 18 after long-
time circuit judge Thomas J.
Kennon Jr. retired. Fina will
have to run for the office in
2006 for a full six-year term.
Each guest was handed a
special keepsake program as
they signed the guest book at
the door to the courtroom
where the line snaked down
the steps to the first floor. By
3:15 p.m., the courtroom was
filled and the balconies then
filled, as well as the stairs
leading to the two balconies
and guests also stood around
the room.
With nearly a dozen county,
circuit and appellate judges, a
state attorney and public de-
fender, along with at least four
sheriffs and other elected offi-
cials in attendance, security
was evident both outside and
inside the courthouse.
The event began with
Suwannee County Sheriff
Tony Cameron officially
opening the session, followed
by Third Circuit Chief Judge
Julian Collins who presided
over the hour-long event with
dignity and humor, putting
everyone at ease to enjoy this
once-in-a lifetime event with
the Fina family. The Rev. Jim-
my Deas, pastor of Yestvoopd
Baptist Church, offered the in-
vocation, followed by the
pledge of allegiance lead by
Third Circuit Public Defender


Dennis Roberts and special
music by Larry and Susan
Roush.
Third Circuit State Attorney
Jerry Blair had many kind
things to say about Fina and
the job he's done for the past
20 years as one of Blair's as-
sistant state attorneys. Blair
said he was extremely proud
of Fina and his accomplish-
ments. He presented Fina with
a plaque from the office for
his achievements with the
Third Circuit.
Fina's mother, Polly Fina,
was on hand with Fina's wife
Michelle, son Wesley and
daughter Natalie and other
family members, to officially
help her son put on the Robe
of Office after it was present-
ed to him by Third Circuit Bar
Association President Nancy
Fields.
A very special moment
came when Lake City attor-
ney Leandra Johnson read re-
marks on behalf of Third Cir-
cuit Judge Paul Bryan wishing
Fina best wishes and present-
ed Fina with a bible from
Judge Bryan to use in Fina's
role as a judge. Bryan was
present but recovering from
surgery and was unable to par-
ticipate.
Third Circuit Senior Judge
Thomas J. Kennon Jr. admin-
istered the Oath of Office to
Fina as Fina's wife, Michelle,
held the bible and his children
and family proudly watched.
A roar of. approval erupted
from the crowd as Fina com-
pleted the oath.
First District Court of Ap-
peals Senior,Judge and former...
Third Circuit judge and state
attorney L. Arthur Lawrence
presented Fina with a special-


ly engraved nameplate and
told a funny story associated
with his own nameplate when
he was a circuit judge in
Suwannee County.
Former Third Circuit State
Attorney's Investigator O. J.
Lake, a close friend of Fina's
and former co-worker, invited
Fina to stand on Lake's left
and Blair to stand on his right
as Lake read Psalms 23.
Then, it was Fina's turn to
say a few words. Fina thanked
his friends and colleagues for
attending, and spoke of his de-
sire to not just be a judge, but
to serve in his new role as a
circuit judge.

GUEST COMMENTARY


Guardian ad Litem

volunteers make a

big difference in

children's lives

Could you be one?
By Suwannee County Judge William R. "Bill" Slaughter and
Third Circuit Judge David Fina
Volunteer advocates are often the difference for children in
foster care limbo
Rarely a week passes without the media reporting how the
foster care system has failed another child-often with tragic
consequences. The nation's foster care system was created to
protect children who are not safe in their own homes. For many
children, foster care is literally life-saving. Yet, for many more,
what should be short-term refuge from abuse or neglect be-
comes months and years of uncertainty while their lives are put
on hold.
Nearly half of the more than 500,000 children in foster care in
the United State today will spend at least two years in care. Even
in the Third Circuit where hundreds of children are in foster
care, too many count their time in years, not months., Many
move repeatedly from home to home, their displacements so fre-
quent and unexpected that one former foster child recalled his
time in care by saying, "Every day, when I came home from
school, I would check to see if my bags were packed."
It is clear that too many children spend too long in foster care.
The Pew Commission on Children in Foster Care, a natior.a.,
nonpartisan entity committed to improving the lives of children
in foster care,-reports the average child'staysin' foster care tor
three years apd is moved at least three-ti mes.during that time
This kind of turbulence and uncertainty can have lasting corn-
sequences. Moving from home to home while in care often
means switching schools, missing doctor's checkups, losing
contact with friends, relatives, even brothers and sisters--jt
times without any explanation. A former foster child, now a col-
lege graduate, told the Pew Commission, "I felt like I was just
being passed around and not really knowing what was going on.
No one explained anything to me."
The little things most children experience as part of growing
up-school trips, family vacations, sleepovers at friends' hous-
es--are made nearly impossible by bureaucracy and paperwork.
The longer they are in foster care, the more foster care children
miss out on normal experiences.
These fragile young spirits desperately need to anchor their
lives but instead are set adrift. While many find the safe, per-
manent, loving family they need and become well-adjusted chil-
dren and adults, too many never recover. They end up troubled
and too often in trouble.
The Pew Commission last year recommended reforming fed-
eral financing and court oversight of foster care. They urged
courts and agencies to share information, that children and par-
ents have a voice in court and that state court leaders act as
champions for the children in their courts.
The National Court Appointed Special Advocates Association
(CASA), with more than 70,000 volunteers spread across all 50
states, has been remarkably effective for many years as legally
recognized advocates for foster children. Judges overseeing
some of the most challenging foster care cases appoint CASA
volunteers, known in Florida communities as volunteer
Guardians ad Litem (GAL), to help the court become more
knowledgeable about a youngster's life. More GAL volunteers
willing to be the difference in a young child's life are needed so
far more children could reap the benefits of being heard.
GAL programs depend on local volunteers who are willing to
acquire special training and then make an important commit-
ment to a child. The volunteers take on the responsibility of be-
coming very knowledgeable about the life of the child they are
assigned. From that knowledge, they make recommendations to
the court that focus on achieving the child's best interests. This
unbiased perspective is immensely valuable to judges, whose
decisions will affect the rest of the youngster's life.
Unfortunately, there are only enough GAL volunteers to work
with about one half of the children in foster care. More caring
and committed individuals should step forward. Our society
would greatly benefit if the GAL program could be expanded.
When children in foster care have a voice in the court pro-
ceedings that will impact their lives, everyone benefits, but most
especially the children because the quality of the decisions be-
ing made about them improves. To learn more about becoming
a GAL volunteer, please call the Live Oak GAL office at 1-386-
364-7720 or Sandra Tice, GAL Volunteer Recruiter/Trainer, at
1-386-758-1170 ext. 105 or e-mail her at sandra.tice@gal.fl.gov
Judge Slaughter has been a Suwannee County judge for many
years and works very closely with the GAL program and foster
care to serve the children of Suwannee County. Judge Slaughter
has handled hundreds of cases involving children since becom-
ing an elected county judge.
Judge Fina was recently appointed to the Third Circuit as a
judge after serving for more than 20 years as an assistant state
attorney in the Third Circuit where he's dealt with many cases
involving children either as victims, in foster care or as witness-
es in criminal cases.
Both Judge Slaughter and Judge Fina are highly supportive of
the GAL program.


OPINION

Stupid airport security III


Several airport security screeners
have sent me polite letters criticizing
some of my comments in my last two n.
columns, prompting this question to
you: In managing our personal secu-
rity, should we guard against possible
or probable threats? Consider the
measures and the resource expendi-
tures I might take to guard Mrs.
Williams and me against all possible '- '2
threats to our security. BY WALTE
Even though I live in Pennsylva-
nia, well outside of tornado alley, I'd construct a tornado shel-
ter because it's possible for a tornado to strike anywhere. I'd
no longer get into my car and drive off without doing a thor-
ough check of my car's hydraulic brake system for leakage. I'd
build an iron-reinforced roof to guard against the possibility of
a meteor. I'd also purchase a metal detector to do sweeps of my
property, to guard against the possibility someone might have
buried a land mine. I'd hire a detective and forensic accoun-
tant. Even though Mrs. Williams and I have been married 45
years, it is possible that she might be stashing some of my
money into a Swiss bank account.
Were I to take those measures, I'm sure the average person
would label me as either paranoid or stupid. Why? It would
take resources away from guarding against more probable
threats to our security, such as burglary..While my focusing on
all possible threats wouldn't be smart, it would make me a
prime candidate to become a Transportation Security Adminis-
tration (TSA) official. Their vision of airport security is to fo-
cus on the possible as well as the probable.
It is indeed possible for an 88-year-old man crippled with
debilitating arthritis to be a terrorist. It's possible that one of
our Marines returning from Iraq for stateside reassignment,
carrying ID and official reassignment orders, is also a member
of al Qaeda ready to take out an airplane. It's possible for a
mother accompanied by her four children, or a 92-year-old
woman, to be "mules" paid by terrorists to bring something on
board to blow up the plane. It is also possible that a pilot plans
to blow his plane up with a shoe bomb. That's reason for mak-

ing him take his shoes off. It's poss
ble that a blind person carrying
cigarette lighter will give it to a te..
rorist accomplice to light a shq:e.
bomb in flight. There are other poe
sible security threats. Women
stockings and underwear, as well a
men's ties and belts, can be used a
garrotes for strangulation. Sod
straws can be used to blow poiso:
darts.
While these are all possible


threats, the question is, how probable are they? Resource ex
penditure on security threats just because they are posibll
means that those same resources cannot be spent on those fa
more probable. Moreover, if there were full implementation o
the program to permit pilots to be armed, the more probabli-'
threats would become less so. In other words, arming pilot,
and some crew members would lessen a whole class of securi
ty threats.
The TSAs determined opposition to passenger profiling is iti
itself a threat to airport security. Take their additional screen
ing. They have every incentive to be politically correct. Bu'
suppose the TSA had to pay $1,000 to each passenger they se!
elected for additional screening who was found to be no securi-
ty threat. You can bet they'd develop a screening method that
made more sense, and it would include some sort of passenger
profiling, including racial profiling. And, by the way, liberals
shouldn't fret, because the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled in
several affirmative action cases that provided there's a com-.,
pelling state interest, race can be used in decision making.
It's my opinion that sensible TSA security measures would
allow us to reallocate resources away from policing against
possible but improbable threats to policing the far more prob-
able source of threats - one being our border with Mexico.

COMMENTARY

We must protect our children


S* By Charlie Crist, Attorney General
There is a change in Florida.
While we have made great strides in
our fight against crime in the last 10
years, the tragic events of recent
S^,.., months raise new concerns about
our safety and security. It began in
- .i- . . .Sarasota last year with.the kidnap-
i .. ... . . '.i: ing and murder of 11-year-old Car-
lie, Brucia. A few months later, six
i young people in Deltona were blud-
Sgeoned to death with baseball bats.
S',r.. In March, we learned of the kidnap-
Charlie Crist, ing, rape and murder of nine-year-
Attorney General old Jessica Lunsford in Homosassa.
Now we are learning the tragic
details surrounding the death of 13-year-old Sarah Lunde in
Ruskin, near Tampa.
These nine young people had their entire lives before them,
only to have them robbed by criminals with prior records of vi-
olence. The common thread linking these murders: the abuse of
probation. Those accused of being responsible for each of these
heinous acts were probation violators with prior convictions for
violent crimes. Put simply, these criminals were out of jail en-
joying the privilege of probation but are accused of turning
around and again committing violent acts.
Those of us who serve you as your elected representatives are
obligated to do everything possible to prevent such senseless
outrages. We have a chance to do that with an important piece of
legislation before the Florida Legislature that would give judges
the authority lock up these violent criminals.
Senate Bill 608/House Bill 451, known as the Anti-Murder
Act of 2005, would require an immediate'"danger to the com-
munity" hearing before a judge when these prior felons violate
probation. The judge will have the opportunity to review the


felon's entire record, and if he or she finds the probation viola-
tor to be. a danger to the community, the criminal goes back to
prison. In order to release the violator, the judge must document
in writing that the offender is not, in fact, a danger to the com-
munity.
This important public safety legislation enjoys the endorse-
ments of the Florida Sheriffs Association, the Florida Police
-Chiefs Association, the Florida Prosecuting Attorneys Associa-
tion, the Florida Police Benevolent Association, the Florida
Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the National Rifle Asso-
ciation and the Unified Sportsmen of Florida.
While these bills have unanimously passed every House and
Senate committee that have heard them, inexplicably they have
not yet been placed on the agenda of some other committees.
Time is running out, for the 2005 session ends soon.
The Anti-Murder legislation was proposed within the context
of a $61.6 billion budget, but now we know that Florida will
have $2.2 billion more in the budget than originally thought.
Our experts project the cost of the Anti-Murder Act at $56
million for the coming fiscal year. Our proposal would account
for just two-and-a-half percent of the budget windfall - out of
an entire budget of $63.8 billion, this would be less than nine
one-hundredths of one percent!
Ultimately, the question is not whether we can afford to pass
this legislation, it is whether we can afford not to. Our commit-
ment to the safety of our citizens, our children, is being tested.
Already nine young Floridians have lost their lives.
Our proposal is more than a budget line item, it is a lifeline. I
urge the Legislature to take up and pass the Anti-Murder Act
sponsored by Senator Rudy Garcia and Representative Bruce
Kyle, and co-sponsored by more than 100 of Florida's 160 leg-
islators. Our children's lives depend upon it.
Please note that Florida has a broad public records law, and
that all correspondence to me via email may be subject to dis-
closure.

A week ago Jack and Linda
Gaylord and Kenny and Sherri
Gaylord traveled to Eustice to
visit Linda's daughter, Gina Lu-

granddaughter Reagan Lucas'
second birthday. The 15 admir-

Morales. Gaylords always have
fun when they gather. This time
everyone agreed that the wrap-
ping paper and ribbons were the
best part of birthday from Rea-

was blessed with glorious
weather and a meal at Cracker
Barrel Restaurant there and of
course, Linda and Jack found
some yard sales to check out.
At the Wellborn School Re-


union this Saturday there was a
round table full of Jack Gay-
lord's kin who went to school
here. The annual Wellborn
School reunion is at Wellborn
Baptist Church on the third Sat-
urday in April. Denward Mor-
gan and Helen Cribbs co-chair.
One year it landed on the Satur-
day of Easter weekend. Another
year everyone enjoyed warm
sunshine in the church yard for
visiting and photos. That was at
the old Baptist Church on
CR137. This year Irene Jemi-

from 10th grade here in 1938)

her fireplace at home that mom-

The Tobacco Transition Payment:


Program (also called "Tobacco Buyout").




You've heard about it.


Now be a part of it.


This is it. The Federal tobacco marketing quota system is over. No more plant-
ing restrictions. No more marketing cards. No more price support loans.
Instead, the USDA's new Tobacco Transition Payment Program will provide
money to eligible tobacco quota holders and producers to help in this transi-
tion that ends the old system. But sign up now or you will not get a 2005 payment.


) Did you own a farm as of October 22, 2004, with a 2004 basic
marketing quota?

) Are you an owner, operator, landlord, tenant, or sharecropper who
shared in the risk of producing tobacco anytime between 2002 and
2004?

S) Do you grow Flue-cured, Burley, Fire-cured, Dark air-cured, Virginia
sun-cured, or Cigar filler/binder tobacco?


Please sign up between March 14, 2005, and June 17, 2005,
at your local USDA Service Center.

Avoid a stroke in just 10 minutes

Live Oak community helps reduce the risk of stroke


Residents living in and around
the Live Oak community can be
screened to reduce their risk of
having a stroke. Life Line
Screening will be at the Commu-
nity Presbyterian Church on Fri-
day, April 22. The site is located
at 830 Pinewood Way SW in
Live Oak. Appointments will be-
gin at 9 a.m.
A stroke, also known as a "
brain attack" , is ranked as the
third leading killer in the world,
and the second among women.
Through preventive screenings,
the risk of having a stroke can be
greatly reduced.
Screenings are fast, painless
and low cost. They involve the
use of ultrasound technology,
and scan for potential health
problems related to: blocked ar-


teries which can lead to a stroke,
aortic aneurysms which can lead
to a ruptured aorta, and harden-
ing of the arteries in the legs,
which are a strong predictor-ofL
heart disease. Also offered for
men and women, is a bone den-
sity screening to assess their risk
for osteoporosis.
" It saved my husband from
having a major stroke." William
and Harriett West - Zephyrhills.
Each screening requires 10
minutes or less to complete. A
complete vascular screening
package, including the
Stroke/Carotid Artery, Abdomi-
nal Aortic Aneurysm and Ankle
Brachial Index (hardening of the
arteries) screenings is
$109. Sign-tip for a complete
vascular package; include the


osteoporosis screening and pay
only $129.
Life Line Screening was es-
tablished in 1993, and has since
become, the nation's leading
provider of vascular
screenings. Over 45 ultrasound
teams are on staff to travel to
your local community, bringing
the screenings to you. These
non-invasive, inexpensive and
painless, ultrasound tests help
people identify their risk for
stroke, vascular diseases or os-
teoporosis early enough for their
physician to begin preventive
procedures.
For more information regard-
ing the screenings or to schedule
an appointment, call toll-free
800-697-9721. Pre-registration
is required.

mitted, "They almost dropped
J.L. on the ground in the trans-
fer from automobile to wheel-
chair." Another special fonner
Wellborn School student was
Wallace Nichols whose sale of
a camping facility in Cly-
attsville, Ga. will now enable
him to become a regular at-
tendee. He and Denward Mor-
gan did simultaneous military
service traveling from Wellborn
to Camp Blanding to overseas.
The best part of the shared rem-


iniscing was the part about the
two Wellborn soldier boys who
lost track of each other overseas
but imagine the thanksgiving
when it was with Wallace
Nichols at the top of the gang
plank to welcome Denward
Morgan aboard the home going
vessel. The Nichols farm was
north of downtown Wellborn.
Sister Louise and brother J.C.
shared a Wallace family and
friends table. It is tradition to
light a candle and toll a bell for
all those who have departed this
life since the last reunion. There
were 11. At Frances Bullocks'
registration table everyone had
opportunity to sign a card for
Bernice Wilson Regan, who to-
gether with Helen started the
Wellborn School Reunion but
was unable to come this year. A
second card was for Lauretta
and Wilbur Hogan whose acci-
dent last Sunday .prevented
them from attending.
A Bicycle Safari group was


also running a 25th anniversary
event for 356 riders in all. A sag-
wagon stop was established op-
posite Wellborn Post Office for
about 25 who chose the route
that gave them our roadsides be-
decked in wild flowers and our
hometown niceness to enjoy.
They were a picture with their
day-glo outfits and their good
health and high spirited cama-
raderie of folks out for adven-
ture. The high energy snacks
spread out for the resting bicy-
clists by a couple from Orlando
were orange segments, whole
wheat bread made into peanut
butter and jelly sandwiches,
pretzels, nuts, Gatorade, bottled
water and there was an original
goody. It is a Titoreo (the Titos
are the Orlando couple who do
this every year). A Titoreo is a
chocolate oreo sandwich cookie
topped with a layer of peanut
butter with a slice of banana
added. The new item was well
received.

Drugs used to treat enlarged Prostate
Benign prostatic hyperplasis (BPH) also known as "enlarged pros-tate",
is the most common benign tissue growth in men. The peak inci-dence
tends to occur between ages 63 to 65. Urination becomes difficult and
symptoms progress with disease. Drug therapy can be of two types:
testosterone blockers and alpha blockers. Finasteride (Proscar) blocks an
important testosterone reaction in the prostate. This drug can shrink the
prostate up to 25%, but it can take up to 6 months for benefits to become
apparent. Alpha blocker drugs, on the other hand, work much faster. This
group of drugs, which include terazosin, doxazosin, and tamsulosin,
relax the muscles in the prostate and neck of the bladder. They do not
affect prostate size. Some of these can cause low blood pressure since
they are also used to treat hypertension. Tamsulosin (Flomax) is the only
drug in this group that does not affect blood pres-sure.
Men with BPH should talk to their doctor about drugs that make BPH
symptoms worse. The list includes pseudoephredine, phenylephrine,
antihistamines (of the drowsy type), tricyclic antidepressants like ami-
triptyline, and anticholinergic drugs (used for intestinal spasms and
Parkinson's disease). 157544AS-F

about why the band's popular-
ity has endured.
In 1977, a plane crash killed
\Van Zant's brother, Ronnie,
and two other Lynyrd
Sk~ nyrd band members. And
recently, bassist Leon Wilke-
i on died. Through all the
ti rgedies, the band keeps on
tr.ckin'.
"It's the music, faith in
God and knowing there's
a better place to go," Van
* Zant said about how they
.i.j held up through all that's
happened. "We always
seem to fall back on the
S music. Music is a great
V healer."
Johnny Van Zant
and his brother Don-

May 10. According to Johnny,
there are some real traditional
country songs on the album along
with some country rock. He said
there was nothing on the album
Lynyrd Skynyrd couldn't play
comfortably.
Johnny said the band will be
playing many favorites as well as
some of the music from newer al-
bums like Vicious Cycle, and even
some stuff off the soon-to-be-re-
leased album.
"We always know what we're
going to open and close with,"
Johnny said about what they're go-
ing to play. He added what happens
in the middle is often based on
what the crowd wants and seems to
like the most.
Johnny said he is excited about
playing at the Spirit of the Suwan-
nee Music Park. He said he'd heard
about the Spirit of the Suwannee
but never played here. It's close to
his home in Jacksonville.
Johnny Van Zant currently lives
in Jacksonville with his wife and
daughters. He has four daughters
23, 21, 13 and two.
Make sure to get your tickets for
this year's Country Jam at the Spirit
of the Suwannee Music Park. The
event likely will sell out and you
won't want to miss Lynyrd Skynyrd.

FWC moves to

expand deer-

dog hunting

program

In Tallahassee today, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) voted to move for-
ward in developing a
process to expand
statewide, a registration
program for deer-dog hunt-
ing on private lands for the
2005-06 hunting season.
Commissioners based the
decision on the overall suc-
cess of a pilot program in
the Northwest Region dur-
ing the 2004-05 hunting
season.
According to a report pre-
sented to the seven-member
Commission by Lt. Col.
Mike Wiwi, deputy director
of the Division of Law En-
forcement, Commissioners
determined that adopting
rules to require deer-dog
registration statewide could
help maintain the tradition-
al sport by reducing con-
flicts between hunters and
landowners.
FWC staff reported the
additional time and costs
associated with the pilot
program were manageable.
Due to the program's effec-
tiveness in addressing con-
flicts between landowners
and deer-dog hunters, and
the positive feedback re-
ceived from everyone in-
volved, including la;i en-
forcement personnel, FWC
staff recommended
statewide expansion with
no significant rule changes.
The report stated that 70

The sectional meet was a tough one for Suwan-
nee's lifters. Several lifters that should have:

the 129 weight class. Kelly lifted 200 on the
bench, 195 in the clean and jerk for a total of
395.

competes in the 169 weightclass. This is Beck's,
second trip to state. Beck qualified for state this'

The Suwannee Bulldogs are 14-5 overall and
5-2 in district play as they head into the last

hammering Lafayette in front of the students
Tuesday, April 12, 12-2.
"It was a great game Monday night. It was
nice to see a pitcher go out and dominate the
game the way Billy Moran did. He was in con-
trol all night, even in a couple of the innings were
he created himself some problems," said coach
Ronnie Gray.
Moran started on the mound and went all the


way, throwing a two-hit complete game shutout.;
Moran struck out 12 Wakulla hitters.
"This was a crucial district game, which bar.,
ring something unforeseen sets up a showdown
for the number-one seed in the district next Tues-'
day night in Madison," Gray said.
Suwannee had a very solid offensive night ac-

of six hits, some well exe-
cuted bunting and base run-
ning to score eight runs.
Two in the second, two in
third, two in the fifth, and
two in the sixth.
Moran and Baldwin both

ning.
Centerfielder Ross
Aretino ended Suwannee's
night offensively with an ex-
clamation point as he hit his
fourth homerun of the year,


as


a two-run shot to leftfield.
Defensively, Suwannee
played errorless baseball.
and turned several big dou-
ble plays in the game.
Michael Keene started on
the mound for the Dogs
against Lafayette. The stu-
dent body filled the stands to
cheer as the Dogs hit three
home runs, numerous dou-
bles and a triple.

t FWC wants all boaters to be safe boaters


FWC wants all boaters to be safe boaters


It's a beautiful day. You're
on your boat, enjoying the
weather and doing a little
fishing. However, when you
decide to return to shore,
you discover you're out of
fuel. Hope you remembered
your cellular phone and you
can get a signal.
Warmer weather means
more folks will be on the
water in their boats. With
the total number of regis-
tered vessels in Florida at an
all-time high with 982,907
registered in 2004, there
could be a lot of people on
the water at any given time.
However, before enjoying
the water, you should take
the time to make sure your
vessel is prepared for the
trip, according to Maj.
Calvin Adams, regional
commander for the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission's (FWC)
North Central Region.
Boating safety is one of
the core responsibilities of
the FWC Division of Law
Enforcement. The officers
who are on Florida's water-
ways every day say statistics
could be much better if peo-
ple would observe the most
basic safety guidelines.
"People have been inside
all winter and are anxious to
get back on the water. How-
ever, they don't always do
what they need to do to en-
sure the boating trip is safe.
"If boaters would do a
safety check and make sure
they have all the equipment
they need before leaving the
house, it could save a great
deal of aggravation later. If
you run out of gas in the
Gulf, it's too late," Adams
explained.
Adams suggests boaters
should:
* Start the motor to make
sure it will crank:
Perform preventative
maintenance on the engine
to make sure it's in good
working order or take it to a
mechanic and let them check
it over.


SEnsure spare parts are
available, such as a prop and
shear pins.
� Take enough fuel to get
where you're going and
back again.
* Ensure the boat's equip-
ment is in good working or-
der. For instance, make sure
the line on the anchor isn't
rotten and that all running
lights are in working order.
SMake sure the required
safety equipment is onboard,
including U.S. Coast Guard-
approved life jackets, fire
extinguishers, sound-pro-
ducing devices and visual
distress signals. At the
FWC website,
http://myfwc.com/boating/s
afety/vessel_class/require-
ments.asp, the minimum re-
quired safety equipment for
recreational vessels by class
is listed.
"Always have life jackets
that fit everyone on board.
An adult-sized life jacket
will not protect a child.
Florida law requires chil-
dren under 6 years old and
all people using personal
watercraft or water skis to
wear life jackets," Adams
explained. "All boaters
should wear life jackets. If
you think they're too hot
and uncomfortable, consider
purchasing the U.S. Coast
Guard-approved inflatable
life jackets. "
* Be weather wise. Know
the weather before you be-
gin your outing.
� Don't overload your boat
with people or equipment.
. Everyone 21 years old or
younger is required to com-
plete a Commission-ap-
proved boater education
course to operate vessels
powered by 10 horsepower
motors and over. The FWC
encourages all boaters to
take a safe-boating course.
Information on course avail-
ability is at
www.myfwc.com; click on "
Boating."
SCarry a cellular phone,
and be sure your VHF radio


is working properly.
"However, in a large area
along the Gulf coast, cell
phone signals are unreliable.
We've had several incidents
this year where people got
into trouble and couldn't get
a signal," Adams said. "One
good device to have with
you is a pocket-sized Per-
sonal Locator Beacon (PLB)
that works off weather satel-
lites. With literally hundreds
of square miles of water to
search, it's easy to see why a
PLB would be a life saver.
With a functioning PLB,
searchers can go straight to
a boater."
"Another important thing
to do is file a float plan so
someone knows where you
are and when you're sup-
posed to return," Adams
said.
For outings on the water,
leave a float plan with a rel-
ative or friend or at least a
local marina.
-Describe the boat, its reg-
istration number, size, make,
horsepower and engine type.
* List where you are going,
the detailed route, and your
expected return time.
* Describe each leg of the
trip including locations of
all stopping points and dates
and times.
* Give the number of pas-
sengers, their names and ad-
dresses, and a contact in
case of emergency.
For shorter daytime out-
ings, at a minimum, you
should:
*Contact a responsible
person before you go out
and tell him or her where
you will be boating and
when you plan to return.
� Leave a phone number of
the local authorities that this
person should contact if you
are overdue.
-Contact this person again
when you return or if you
decide to extend your time
out on the water.
"This is important,"
Adams explained. "If your
contact knows when you're


supposed to return and you
don't, they can contact the
FWC and we can begin
searching for you sooner."
Drinking and boating
don't mix either.
"Alcohol was the leading
primary cause of fatal boat-
ing accidents in 2004. Im-
paired boaters come off the
water and often become im-
paired drivers, further en-
dangering public safety.
Don't drink and operate a
boat or vehicle," Adams
said. "Have a designated
driver so you can enjoy
yourself and keep everyone
safe."
What about someone op-
erating a boat recklessly?
According to Adams, "If we,
as concerned boaters, see a
careless operator or some-
one taking risks while on the
water, report the situation to
the FWC. Give us the FL
number and a description of
the boat and we'll check it
out."
FWC law enforcement is
on duty 24 hours a day and
can be contacted at 1-888-
404-3922 or #FWC on a cell
phone.
Fast Facts on Florida's
2004 Boating Accidents
S 743 boating accidents
occurred in 2004.
- A boating accident is de-
fined as an accident that re-
sults in $2,000 or more in
damages or an injury requir-
ing treatment beyond first
aid, missing person or death.
� Monroe County reported
the highest number of acci-
dents and injuries with 98
and 57 respectively.
� Pinellas County reported
the highest number of fatali-
ties with seven.
* Palm Beach County re-
ported the highest property
damage figures with
$8,693,289. This was one
accident where a 150-foot
yacht was destroyed by fire.

This proposed program
would require a no-cost reg-
istration for anyone using
deer-dogs statewide during
the deer-dog training season
and during any open deer-
hunting season when taking
deer with dogs is permitted.
Wiwi said verifying own-
ership of participating prop-
erties in cases where some-
one other than the landown-
er is applying was one of the
few, components needed to
improve the program.
The FWC will focus on
making sure the public is
fully informed about the


new registration program by
doing a comprehensive
mail-out to all involved par-
ties. The agency also plans
to solicit input and feedback
during future public meet-
ings that will take place in
May. All comments submit-
ted at these public meetings,
along with a final report,
will be on the agenda for
consideration at the FWC's
June 15-17 meeting in Day-
tona Beach.

hunts now is automated
through FWC's Total Licens-
ing System (TLS). To apply
for these permits, visit any
license agent or tax collec-
tor's office or submit an ap-
plication online at
MyFWC.com. Applications
will be available beginning
April 20 from FWC regional
offices and online at
MyFWC.com.
Special-opportunity hunts
offers hunters vast areas,
abundant game, low hunter


quotas and excellent chances"
to bag quality deer, hogs and:
released quail on select
wildlife management areas
throughout Florida.
Based on past years, de-
mand for these hunts is
greater than the number of

lect hunters. Hunter can im-
prove their chances of being
selected by submitting as
many non-refundable $5 ap-.
plications as they want. The
cost of the hunts for selected
applicants ranges from $50

iThe Marines
S from the recruit-
ing sub-station of
Valdosta, Ga. and Lake City
will be representing the Unit-
ed States Marine Corps
(USMC) at this weekend's
Suwannee River Jam (April
21-24) at the Spirit of Suwan-
nee Music Park.
USMC will be conducting
a recruiting promotional tour
that will feature the "Pull-Up
Challenge."
" F o r
those that ADDITIONAL
feel they PHOTOS PAGE 3C
have
what it takes to take part and
those who want to help pro-
mote the pull-up challenge,
they represent the intangibles
that the Marine Corps offer,"
stated Marketing and Public
Affairs Rep SSGT Will Price.
"Those tangibles are chal-
lenge, courage, poise, self-
confidence, self-reliance as
well as discipline."
The "Pull-Up Challenge"
g tracks both young and old,
according to SSGT Price.
There will be t-shirts; key
chains; lanterns, etc. that will
be given away according to
the participant's number of
pull-ups.
This is a challenge t4at in-
tegrates the ability to accom-
plish something tough; both
S mentally as well as physical-
ly, explained SSGT Price.
S "We will have a booth set
up for those who want to stop
by and take part in the "Pull-
iUp Challenge" or just say
Shello" stated SSGT Price.
The USMC will also be
available to answer any ques-
tions from those that are in-
terested in becoming one of
the worlds finest.
"We understand there is a
lot of things going on in the
world today," he said, "and it
takes a "Proud Few" to carry
the torch of freedom to those
in this world who have never
experienced it."
"We look forward to meet-
ing with anyone and'every-
one who stops by."
Representing the USMC at,
the Jam will be SSGT Price.

Simplify your summer with easy, nutritious, kid-friendly meals.


FAMILY FEATURES EDITORIAL SYNDICATE

family vacations, swimming,
soccer, reunions, little league
cookouts and other summer
breaks leave little time to relax.
Adding to the summer stress is the chal-
lenge of finding the time to cook a nutri-
tious family meal your kids will actually
eat. By starting with healthy, versatile in-
gredients, you can make wholesome,
kid-friendly meals easy.


For example, U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish
can be ready to eat in as little as 10 minutes,
which makes it the ideal meal solution for
families with busy summer schedules. Tacos
or kabobs prepared with grilled catfish are
an excellent source of protein and are low
in calories and saturated fat. U.S. Farm-
Raised Catfish has a mild taste, so even kids
who usually turn up their noses at fish will
enjoy its subtle flavors.
For the healthiest option, pair U.S.
Farm-Raised Catfish with heart-healthy
canola oil. Canola oil offers the best


source of omega-3 fatty acids of any lead-
ing vegetable oil and using it in a marinade
can help your family avoid unnecessary
saturated fats. The light flavoring of canola
oil makes it extremely versatile. It is perfect
for salad dressings, stir-fry or in any recipe
that calls for cooking oil.
Quick-and-easy recipes with canola
oil and U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish make
summer meals simple and nutritious.

www.canolainfo.org.

Tipf Ue&r 4




Canola oil is the healthiest option for achieving the tradi-
tional fried taste of cattish.
Use heart-health) canola oil and your catfish will fry
up hght and crispy to give you maximum satisfaction from
your occasional fried treat.
Eliminate deep-frying disappointment ...
* Maintain a frying tenmprature of 375F. If the oil is too
hot, the coating ~ ill burn from the direct heat of the oil
before the food cooks.
* Preheating the oil to j temperature 15�F higher than its
optimal deep-fr)ing temperature allows the oil to be at
its ideal temperature when cold catfish is added.
* Do not add salt to ctfish before deep-frying as it draws
moisture to the food', surface, which will splatter when
the catfish is added to the hot oil. Salt also lowers the
smoke point.

Five foods that are
good for your heart
There is no better time than now to start thinking about your heart.
Exercisie, find new ways to reduce stress and take a good hard look
at your diet.
We all know our best defense is a diet low in saturated fats, but
according to the American Heart Association, incorporating certain
foods into your diet can dramatically improve your cardiovascular
health too. Here's a primer to help get you started:
* Go nuts -- Although nuts have earned a bad reputation because of
their high fat content, it turns out they're actually loaded with heart-
friendly monosaturated and polysaturated.fat and low in the
unhealthy saturated kind. According to the American Heart
Association, people whose diets are high in these types of fats have
lower levels of bad cholesterol. One caveat -- nuts are high in
calories, so if you're watching your weight, beware.
* Eat chocolate
guilt-free -- Yes, 3..o "
it's true, this
guilty pleasure
can actually
work wonders
for your heart.
Researchers at
the University of b-
California Davis
found that
chocolate
contains
flavinoids,
which are
chemicals that
thin the blood
and help prevent
clotting. Cocoa
also contains
antioxidants that
help stave off
disease and it's
high in healthy
monosaturated
fat. Indulge in
darker varieties,
which have more
pure cocoa. And ' :
remember, while ,
this finding is ',
good news for By eating foods that are good for your heart, you can live to that 82nd
chocolate lovers, birthday and beyond.
you don't want
to get carried away -- moderation is key.
* Go fishing' -- Omega-3 fatty acids are essential components to any
healthy diet and can be found in abundance in fish such as salmon,
tuna, mackerel and herring. They may lower the risk of abnormal
heart rhythms and reduce the cohesion of blood cells, which make
them less likely to form clots and block arteries. Omega-3's seem to
be particularly beneficial to people already at risk for heart disease
and those who have experienced a heart attack. In a recent study of
heart attack survivors, those who consumed a diet high in omega-3
fatty acids from fish had a significantly lower risk of a second heart
attack. Aim for at least two servings of fish a week or talk' to your
doctor about taking fish oil supplements.
* Munch on oats -- Not only are oats low in saturated fat, but
they're high insoluble fiber, which reduces cholesterol. Just three
grams of fiber from oatmeal daily could greatly reduce the risk of
heart disease, so try to pack in a punch at breakfast.
* Drink a cocktail -- A drink a day could keep a heart attack at bay.
New research suggests that having a glass of alcohol at least three
days a week could lower your risk of heart attack by one-third.
Scientists speculate it's because like chocolate, alcohol keeps the
blood thin, preventing clots. Drink several glasses of wine or beer in
a week, but don't go overboard -- it's not license to drink heavily.

NORTH FLORIDA FOCUS - APRIL 20-21, 2005, PAGE 11C



Choose sunglasses with style and substance


Sunglasses should do more than just look good on your face.
They should provide protection from UVA and UVB rays, which
can be particularly dangerous when participating in water sports
or other outdoor activities.


Sunglasses are not just a
fashion accessory synony-
mous with summer. They
protect your eyes from sun
glare year round. Sunglasses
can be helpful when you're
boating, playing water
sports, sunning on the beach,
or just enjoying the great
outdoors. That's why you
should purchase your next
pair with extra care.
With such a huge selection
of prescription and nonpre-
scription sunglass styles,
prices, and features, some-
times choosing the "right"
pair can be overwhelming.
Don't fear: You don't have to
spend much money to get an
effective pair of sunglasses.
Get the facts about sunglass
product components so you
can choose the right pair for
you.
� Style - The shape of the
lenses and frames is up to
your discretion. If you al-
ready wear prescription eye-
glasses and are happy with


how they fit your face, look
for similarly shaped sunglass
lenses. You may also be able
to purchase snap-on lenses or
magnetized sunglass attach-
ments that can fit over your
prescription lenses.
� UV Protection - Look for
glasses that provide protec-
tion from ultraviolet light, a
component of sun exposure
that can lead to eye disease.
The FDA oversees sunglass
manufacturing and sales in
the United States and recom-
mends that you look for sun-
glasses with lenses that block
99 to 100 percent. of UVA
and UVB radiation (100 per-
cent is best). Look for label-
ing that reads "UV 400" or
"100% UV protection."
� Lenses - Lenses come in a
variety of colors, materials
and with special coatings.
Polycarbonate is a durable,
lightweight plastic very com-
monly used for sunglass
lenses.
CR-39 is a plastic used


mostly in prescription-grade
lenses. Another option is
glass, which is durable but
much heavier to wear. When
selecting lens colors, keep in
mind your activity and how
you will rely on your sun-
glasses for optimum visual
ability.
� Gray reduces brightness,
but will not distort color.
� Brown and amber reduce
glare. These tints can distort
colors.
� Yellow tints reduce the
haze from the blue light in
the spectrum of sunlight bet-
ter than browns, so you'll ex-
perience a sharp view. But
they cause color distortion.
* Green lenses reduce glare
and filter out a portion of the
blue light. They provide
good contrast between ob-
jects.
� Rose lenses offer good
contrast for objects viewed
against blue or green back-
grounds, so they are ideal for
water sports or other outdoor


activities.
You may also want to con-
sider anti-reflective coatings,
which reduce the reflection
caused by light that hits the
back of lenses, preventing
the light from bouncing into
your eyes. These coatings
can be applied to prescrip-
tion sunglasses at an optical
store, or over-the-counter
styles may already feature
antireflective options.
While fashions go in and
out of style, rest assured that
the style of sunglasses does-
n't change that dramatically
from year to year. So if you
find your perfect pair, you
should be able to enjoy them
for quite a while if you prop-
erly care for them. One sure
way is to purchase a case to
store your sunglasses in so
they won't get scratched or
damaged. Also, keep your
sunglasses free of smudges
by cleaning them frequently
with a lens cloth and a lens-
cleaning solution.


Protect your baby from the sun


- i

, .'ic. " -





Don't let your little one get a sunburn! Hats and sunblocks will
help prevent the sun's rays from harming your baby.


There's nothing worse than
the sound of a crying baby --
except a crying baby with a
sunburn. While you can
change a dirty diaper or feed
a hungry baby, you can't just
make the sunburn disappear.
That's why it's much easier
(and quieter) to prevent your
baby from getting too much

Agency. A baby's skin is
thinner than adult skin, so it
burns more easily. Also, if
the skin is.damaged from the
sun at such a young age, it
can cause skin cancer later in
life.
But don't panic and hastily
cancel your summer vaca-
tion to the beach just yet. If
you keep a few things in
mind, you can protect your
baby from the sun and still
enjoy the outdoors together.
* Keep your baby out of
the sun from 10 a.m. to 4
p.m., the hours when the
sun's rays are the strongest
and can cause the most skin
damage. Even on cloudy
days, you might not be able
to see or feel the sun, but the
UV rays are still getting
through. Remember that ba-
bies under 6 months of age
should always be kept out of
direct sunlight regardless of
the time of day.
* Apply sun lotion that is
formulated specifically for
babies. Baby Blanket or
Coppertone Water Babies
contain a high SPF (usually
above 35) and won't irritate
your baby's skin like adult
sun creams can.
* Dress your baby in pro-
tective clothing. A light-

weight, long-sleeve T-shirt is
best (as long as your baby
won't swelter in one). Avoid
tank tops since they don't
cover shoulders, which are
very susceptible to burning.
Also choose shirts in a tight-
ly knit fabric. If you hold up
a shirt in a store and can see
the fluorescent light getting
through, then the sun's rays
will definitely be able to
penetrate it.
A hat is another must-wear
item for babies. Choose the
style carefully. That Yankee
baseball cap may look cute,
but it only shades the front
of the face. A wide-brimmed
or legionnaire-style hat will
cover both your baby's face
and neck. Also make sure the
hat fits your baby comfort-
ably; otherwise, you'll spend
much of your time strug-


gling to keep it on your
baby's head. It's also a good
idea to get child-size sun-
glasses with UV protection
that will help shield your
baby's eyes.
* Keep you baby in the
shade as much as possible.
Bring an umbrella to the
beach or pool. Nylon beach
canopies like Sun Stop'r
Qwik Cabanas offer protec-
tion for the whole family and
come with a bag for easy
portability. When walking
your baby at the beach or
pool, attach a parasol to the
stroller (some brands such as
Inglesina's Swift Stroller
come with them, but univer-
sal umbrellas that attach to
all strollers are also avail-
able). Mesh covers, which fit
over the front of the stroller
much like rain guards, are


another great option for
keeping out the sun.
* All this talk of shade
doesn't mean that your child
can't enjoy the water. Just
make sure he's wearing a
waterproof sunscreen and a
T-shirt too. Once he comes
out of the pool or ocean,
change the wet T-shirt, since
it's easier for the sun to pen-
etrate through water, and
reapply sunscreen.
* And if your baby does
get too much sun, here are a
few hints: Give him water
-and juice to avoid dehydra-
tion, soak him in cool water
or apply aloe vera lotion to
soothe his skin, and keep
him out of the sun until the
sunburn is completely gone.
If the burn blisters or doesn't
seem to be getting better,
call a doctor.

N CLASSIiFIED MARKETPLACE - SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA


Parrp: gn APRIL 20-21. 2005 - NORT FLO)RIDA FOCUS









U CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE - SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA NORTH FLORIDA FOCUS - APRIL 20-21, 2005, PAGE 3D


Dear Classified Guys,
I run a house cleaning service that I
named after myself, "Al's
Housecleaning". Kind of catchy, I
thought. Since my name began with an
"A", I expected to be listed at the top of
the business service directory in my
newspaper. Boy was I wrong. Everyone
else named their business "ABC
Housecleaning" or "AAA
Housecleaning". Last week I even read
one that said, "AAA111222333
Housecleaning". Are they kidding me?
How important is it to be listed at
the top of the classified col-
umn? And any suggestions ,
on how I can get there?


Cash: It's too bad your parents
didn't think to name you AAAlbert. Then
maybe you'd be right at the top of the page.
Carry: Many businesses like to be at the
top of the column in hopes of being selected
first. While that can be true in some cases, it
starts to negate itself when the business
names are drastically altered to get there.
What reader can choose between "AAA
Housecleaning and "AAA 111222333
Housecleaning"?
Cash: When so many businesses are
fighting for the same space, it may make
more sense to be unique in your approach.


-.5


Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


Consider advertising at the bottom of the col-
umn. Believe it or not, I know a lot of people
who read classified from the bottom up.
Carry: Of course, then you're competing
with "ZZZ's Holsecleaning".
Cash: But I hear they fall asleep on the
job.
Carry: While location may make a differ-
ence in the response to your ad, there are
other approaches that can be equally produc-
tive. Consider advertising in a small display
ad in the business directory of your paper.
Readers may be more prone to respond to
your display advertising than sort through all
the listings.
Cash: Since you are competing with


. ,- ,,

@2005 The Classfied Guys�

many other businesses, its important you
focus on the writing of your ad. Offer some-
thing the other businesses do not in order to
catch the reader's attention.
Carry: Determine the aspects of your
business that customers appreciate most.
Then make sure yod have those keywords in
your ad. For instance, "flexible hours" or
"bonded and insured" may be a few phrases
that readers like to see.
Cash: If you're not getting the response
you expect, change your ad slightly each
week until it's working perfectly. You may
find that listing "reasonable rates" works, but
"free estimates" gets the phone to ring off the
hook.

Mr. & Mrs. Clean
What type of cleaning personality are
you? According to a survey by the Soap
and Detergent Association, people fall
into one of five cleaning personalities.
The "Clean Extremes" are the types who
clean where people don't see. The "Mess
Busters" don't even think about cleaning,
they just do it. "Mop Passers" like a clean
home, but they hire someone to do it.
"Strugglers" are those of us who don't
consider housework to be an important
part of our day-to-day lives, and "Dirt
Dodgers" clean only when it is absolutely
necessary.
Cleaned Out
Today with both parents working 40
hours a week, the average household is
busier than ever. Most families can bare-
ly find time to make dinner, let alone
clean the house. The average household
spends 10 hours per week on miscella-
neous housework and the vast majority
of that falls to the woman of the house.
It's no wonder that 20% hire some.sort of
housecleaning service. Though, it does
lead us to ask the question: "Husbands,
are you helping out your wife around the
house enough?"
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.

Sell Your Car for "Top Dollar"

0 CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE - SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA


Suck It Up
When I was in college, I took all
sorts of odd jobs. One summer I even
became a door-to-door vacuum sales-
man. While most people closed the
door on me, one older woman was
very happy to invite me in.
After I demonstrated the model on
her living room carpet, she asked if I
would try it on her tiled kitchen floor.
Happy to oblige, I demonstrated the
hardwood floor setting and vacuumed
the area.
When I asked for her thoughts, she
told me to try it on her bedroom car-
pet. Rather confused I asked, "Is your
bedroom carpet a different type?"
"Oh no," she replied honestly, "But
if you do the last room, I can cancel
the housecleaner this week."
(Thanks to Marlene G.)
