"It was a labor of love, and I believe if I
could sit down right now and play it for my
father, he would say it was done the way he
would have done it," said Jeanie Stanley

Democrat Managing Editor
It was a bad day for two Talla-
hassee residents April 28 when
they ended up in the Suwannee
County Jail. Law enforcement of-
ficers say it was a stinky situa-

, � c 2005 Creators Syndicate
BY WALTER WILLIAMS

Only in America
Let's talk about the rich - those people who, according to for-
mer Congressman Richard Gephardt, are "winners in life's lot-
tery." Or the people whom director Michael Moore preaches, in
his book "Dude, Where's my Country?" got rich off the backs of
the poor.
Farrah Gray was raised in a predominantly black Chicago
neighborhood. At age 8, he started a lemonade stand business, lat-
er a venture capital business, a food business and a magazine. By
age 17, Farrah Gray was a millionaire, had been chief executive of
four companies, and had offices on Wall Street, and in Las Vegas
and Los Angeles.
While becoming a millionaire by age 17 is rare, eventually be-
coming a millionaire isn't. According to TNS Financial Services'
2004 Affluent Market Research survey, there are an estimated 8.2
million American households with assets, excluding primary resi-
dences, worth over $1 million. That's a 33 percent increase over
the 6.2 million millionaire households in 2003.
Who are these people portrayed either as winners in life's lot-
tery or who got rich by exploiting the poor? One thing for sure is
that they're not the sons and daughters of the Rockefellers, the
Kennedys or the Vanderbilts. According to Drs. Thomas Stanley
and William Danko's research published in their book "The Mil-
lionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America's
Wealthy," 80 percent of today's American millionaires' are: first-,
generation'rich.- ' "
Drs. Stanley and Danko listed other characteristics of these 8.2
million millionaire households. Fewer than 20 percent inherited
10 percent or more of their wealth. More than half never received
as much as a dollar in inheritance. Fewer than 25 percent received
"an act of kindness" from a relative greater than $10,000, and 91
percent never received, as a gift, as much as $1 from the owner-
ship of a family business.
Being first-generation rich is not new for Americans. Drs. Stan-
ley and Danko say, "More than 100 years ago the same was true.
In The American Economy, Stanley Lebergott reviews a study
conducted in 1892 of the 4,047 American millionaires. He reports
that 84 percent were nouveau riche, having reached the top with-
out the benefit of inherited wealth."
This points to one of the most unique features of our nation. Just
because you know where a person ended up in life is no guaran-
tee that you can tell where he started. In other words, there is so
much economic mobility in our society that starting out with mod-
est means or even being dirt poor does not prevent one from end-
ing up at the top.
According to IRS tax data, 85.8 percent of tax filers in the bot-
tom fifth in 1979 had moved on to a higher quintile, and often to
the top quintile, by 1988.
Here's my question for you: What are we to make of people
who preach pessimism and doom to people - telling them that
they're poor because others are rich or telling blacks that they'll
never make it because of societal racism? What are we to make of
politicians, media pundits and college professors who preach the
politics of envy - telling people lies that the rich became rich off
the backs of the poor? I grew up poor in a housing project in North
Philadelphia, and those weren't the lessons prevalent a half-centu-
ry ago. My mother used to preach that "We have a beer pocket-
book but champagne tastes." And my stepfather used to admonish,
"If you want to make it in this world, you have to come early and
stay late." Those messages are far more beneficial to a poor per-
son than those of victimhood and pity. Personally, I like evangeli-
cal minister Reverend Ike's response when asked what should we
do about the poor. He said, "The best thing you can do for the poor
is not become one."

this week in the democrat


Once a month I tell you about my fa-
vorite things in the Suwannee Democ-
rat, either that day or coming up in the
weeks ahead. But do I ask you enough what you
like or what you want? Could we be doing more
of something and less of others? I would love to
hear from you on any suggestions you might
have to help us improve what we have to offer,
from story ideas to how we can better deliver
your paper. We need.your ideas on how we can
better serve you now and in the future.
Here are my favorites from this issue, please
let me know yours!
Cartoons! In an effort to bring you more each
week, we are introducing a comic page in to-
day's edition of the Suwannee Democrat. In-
cluded on the page is Cathy, which debuted in
newspapers in 1976. The strip chronicles the tri-
als, tribulations and humor in the life of Ameri-
ca's favorite single woman. Following Cathy is
The Elderberries ... let's face it. . everybody's
aging and as the baby-boomer generation strolls
Into senior citizenry this comic strip will address
the bittersweet and comedic elements of aging.
For Better Or For Worse, the number one family
comic strip in North America as selected by
comic fans, has its place on our page as well.
For 25 years, this strip has captured hearts of
newspaper readers as they have viewed the joys
and frustrations, the happiness and losses in this
chronicle of the Patterson family. Who's the
wisecracking, nap-taking, lasagna loving, Mon-
day-hating, dog-punting, spider-whacking, mail-
man-mauling fat cat? He's Garfield . . . the
world's most hilarious feline, and he's included
each week in our comic page for your reading
enjoyment. Last, but certainly not least, is Pooch
Cafe. Pooch Cafd is the story of a cheese-loving,
squirrel-fearing, kibble-desiring, break dancing;
toilet-drinking mutt named Poncho who is the
ringleader of a group of dogs that hang out at the
"Pooch Cafe." Look for page 6D and sit back,
read and enjoy, I did, and I hope you will too?
Also included inside today's Suwannee Demo-


crat is a special section that introduces you to
the future. The Class of 2017 or the kindergart-
ners of 2005 are highlighted in a photo feature
section that includes the stars of the future, our
children. The children all tell what they want to
be when they grow up . . . the traditional re-
sponses are there, teacher, fireman, mom, but
some want to be bucking bull riders, skate board
men and even a dinosaur bone finder is includ-
ed. Take a look, in 12 years you'll see these same
faces in a graduation section as they head to the
future!
The monthly edition of Good News may be
found on pages 6-8C. This month's theme is
hope. Hope in a living Christ is the message and
you may enjoy the theme in several ways in-
cluding a word search for kids, but hey, aren't
we all kids at heart!
Don't forget your mom this Sunday, May 8, on
Mother's Day. I'm treating my mom to a day of
beauty; everything from hair styling to. toenail
painting will be included. It's the least I can do
for the woman who cared for me from head to
toe as a child and loves me unconditionally even
now. I love you Momma! If you can't think of
what to do for your mom, Friday's Suwannee
Democrat will have ideas galore, watch for it.
May has just begun and already the banquets
and end of school year activities have started.
Watch the Suwannee Democrat each week for
your favorite student and their activities. Our
pages will be chock full of student related events
until the end of the month and even up into June.
Graduation for Suwannee High and Branford
High students is in just two weeks and, of
course, we'll cover those events and others lead-
ing up to the big day. Graduation sections will
run May 19 in the Branford News and May 20 in
the Suwannee Democrat for SHS grads.
If that's not enough to keep you busy, Memo-
rial Day will be here before you know it. We'll
have a special page honoring veterans.
Until next time, keep reading and let me know
what you think!

Teachers say best reward is when parents get involved

Educators share tips on how students and parents can honor teachers


National Teacher Appreciation Week is here, but some ofAmer-
ica's best teachers aren't hoping for apples or flowers. 'They say
that the best present a teacher could ask for is also the best method
to improve a child's education-parental involvement in school.
"The best way to recognize teachers is to become an active par-
ticipant in the school," said JeffThompson, a kindergarten teacher
at Evergreen Elementary School on the Fort Lewis, Wash., mili-
tary post, and the current Disney Teacher of the Year. "What I tell
my parents is that the most important thing they can do is get in-
volved, and model to their child the importance of education."
Thompson faces an extra challenge to involving his students'
parents: the majority of his kindergarteners have a parent serving
overseas in the military. He works hard to keep them a part of his
classroom by using the internet to allow his kindergarteners to
communicate with parents in Iraq and Afghanistan. "It's really
difficult for the soldiers who are away to communicate, so we
keep in touch through the website," said Thompson. "They can
log on to my site and see pictures of their kids working in class."
Thompson and other current and former winners of the Disney
Teacher Awards are joining with The Walt Disney Company this
week to raise awareness about the importance of parental in-
volvement in schools. The awards are among the highest honors
a teacher can receive, and average more than 150,000 nomina-
tions each year.
"Teachers are local heroes who we believe should be honored,"
said Terry Wick, vice president, Disney Worldwide Outreach.
"National Teacher Appreciation Week is a time to shine the spot-
light on these people who are such an important part of children's
lives every day."
Dozens of studies from institutions like Yale, Columbia and the
University of Illinois have demonstrated that children learn best
when parents participate in their education. At Fort Lewis,
Thompson makes that happen by having individual Parent-
Teacher Partnerships where he meets weekly with parents to track
how they work with their children at home. Thompson also holds


night classes where he teaches successful parenting techniques. "I
do parenting classes and try to have them involved in the class on
a weekly basis," Thompson said. "The main purpose of the class
is to guide parents on how to raise responsible kids who can make
good choices."
"Teacher appreciation is a week, but it needs to become a
lifestyle," said high school journalism teacher Leslie Nicholas, a
Disney Honoree and the 2004 Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year.
"Parents can't just turn their kids over to teachers and expect them
to do it all, just like you don't take your kids to the dentist and for-
get about making sure they brush their teeth. We're in this to-
gether, and if you get invested in your child's education, that's the
best way to appreciate teachers."
Here are a number of suggestions from top educators for ways
parents can get involved in their children's learning:
* Keep in contact with the teacher-Parents who stay informed
by talking regularly with teachers have children who excel in class
and have fewer discipline problems, says Disney Honoree Rober-
ta Patterson of Long Beach, CA. Parent/teacher conferences and
PTA meetings are the traditional ways to keep in contact, but reg-
ular email conversation is a convenient and effective way to keep
in touch.
* Volunteer-Teachers are always in need of chaperones, field
trip drivers, guest speakers, and even classroom assistants. Every
parent has a talent they can.use to help the class learn. Elaine
Malone ofAtlanta, GA volunteered to direct her daughter's school
play, and now three decades later she is a Disney Honoree and one
of America's best drama teachers.
* Do homework together-Working together is a great way to
make sure a child is learning and a chance to spend some time to-
gether., Parents shouldn't be intimidated if an older child is learn-
ing something they don't understand-they can have the child teach
it to them. Several Disney honorees say that having students

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Dear Editor:
I was happy to read Tallahassee WCTV Channel 6 came to Live
Oak to give the weather report. I called several times this past year
and talked with meteorologist Mike McCall regarding the lack of
weather coverage in the Live Oak area. At the time neither Jack-
sonville or Tallahassee were giving adequate weather coverage for
our area.
One night last summer channel 6 reported a tornado on the ground
near Live Oak then never said anymore. I switched to Jacksonville
station and they were covering their tornado touch downs but noth-
ing about Live Oak. I called Channel 6 and told Mike McCall we
needed to know what happened to the tornado. As it turned out he
said the warning was dropped. I explained to him the information
was crucial since I was caring for two elderly bed bound parents and
needed to know whether to get them in the hall for safety.
Live Oak seems to be in the "in-between zone." After that incident
we also had the hurricanes with again very little television coverage
for our area. I hope one station will commit to covering the area so
residents can be better informed and prepared!

Dear Editor:
On Friday, April 15 I had the privilege of serving as the auction-
eer at the Suwannee Elementary School honor roll assembly.
Wanda Chambers is the teacher who came up with this program
and, with the help of her staff, has come up with an excellent way to
reward the students who have achieved honor roll status for the year.
She pulled the event off perfectly.
The way it works is that for each "A" a student earns four points
and each "B" earns three points, for a possibility of 24 points. Each
point is then worth one coupon, which can then be used to bid on
merchandise that was donated by "many local businesses." Now I
don't mean just junk. This merchandise was nice, including watch-
es, bicycles, passes to Wild Adventures, and much more. If a student
wasn't the winning bidder on a prize, there was plenty of other mer-
chandise that the students could redeem their coupons for at the end
of the auction.
There was just about as many parents in the audience as students,
the entire school administrative staff was there, Mr. Bass, Mr. McK-
night and Mrs. Udell, along with Walter Boatright and his wife and
Sheriff Tony Cameron and his wife. I'm convinced that what makes


Suwannee County a great place to live is the people who care.
No one stands as tall as the one who stoops to help a child.
A hundred years from now it will not matter
what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind
of car I drove ...,
but the world may be different becauselI was important in the life
of a child."
- Author Unknown -
Now, for those of you who might be concerned about our schools
and our young people, let me assure you that if you had witnessed
what I witnessed Friday, you too would be confident that the future
will be in good hands.

Graduations set for May 6


Lake City Community College


This year marks a new and
exciting format for the graduat-
ing nurses' "pinning" and the
collegewide commencement
ceremony at Lake City Com-
munity College (LCCC) with
both being held this Friday. In
the past, each ceremony was
held on separate days. To better
coordinate the nurses' pinning
ceremony and increase the ease
of their participation in the gen-
eral commencement cere-
monies, the two have been com-
bined in one single day. The


pinning ceremony will be held
on Friday, May 6 at 2 p.m. in
the Howard Gymnasium. A re-
ception will follow in the Bar-
ney E. McRae Jr. M.D. Medical
Technology Auditorium. From
3-4:30 p.m., cookies and
lemonade will be served in the
Pine Square Pavilion for early
arriving collegewide graduates.
At 5 p.m. the collegewide grad-
uation ceremony will also be
held in the gym. Graduates,
families and friends are invited
to attend.

_ he Masonic Lodge and
yard swarmed with
Brannon folks on Sun-
day. Allene sat on the porch
and directed me to her sister
Colleen as the one with the
story of who is whom as this
family gathers to enjoy each
other. Colleen Brannon Bork-
lund has been bitten by the ge-
nealogy bug and has shared
her research with us for the
"Wellborn My Hometown" lo-
cal history book. It was
Colleen who produced one of
the best photographs in that
memento book. It was of her
daddy, Bob Brannon, and her
brother Stafford (about three
foot tall at the time, 1933)
standing by the converted
pickup truck that had School
Bus painted across the tail
gate. Brannon kids and other
kids were carried from outly-
ing farms to Wellborn School
in that converted pickup and
Bob Brannon was the driver. I
missed getting to know Bob
Brannon, but I treasure my
own memories of Katie Bran-
non, his widow, and the moth-
er of Stafford, Howard,
Willard, Joe, Colleen, Wayne
and Allene. Katie was the first
Brannon I met when we trans-
planted ourselves to Wellborn
25 years ago. She and Mittie
Ruth Bailey and I did church
calls from Wellborn Methodist
Church together. There should
have been a chapter in our
book for stories Jinny heard on
those visits, especially the sto-
ries about snakes. Both Katie
and Mittie Ruth have been pro-
moted to the heavenlies now
but were remembered last
Sunday , i a special way as I
admired children and chil-
dren's children to the third and
fourth generation. Colleen also
came up with a wonderful pic-
ture of her grandfather, Brince
Brannon, when our local histo-
ry paperback was being as-
sembled. Brince had two
wives, two offspring from the
first wife and eight from the
second wife. Many Brannon
descendants live in our area
and the family tree is full of
well known names here like
Brannon, Brannen, Neeley,
Gaylord, Gaylard, Bailey,
Howell, Deese, Geiger,
Stansel and Godbold. The
turnout looked good to me but
Colleen thought it was small
compared to what it might
have been if a day could be
found when ALL the descen-
dants and cousins by the
dozens came together.
Connie Hogan Knotts is to
be honored upon her retire-
ment after 30 good years at the
LCCC. You are invited to drop
in at Connie's on campus
bookstore on Friday, May 6,
between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. as
she closes a chapter of her
life's adventures in order to
start a new one.
Bob and Paula Arnold's
grandchildren stole the show
when the guest gospel group,
Tabitha Singers, invited the
kids to take a mike and sing
along at Wellborn Methodist
homecoming. The middle
child is kindergartner Brittan-
ny McCleod. She is a natural
performer who did a perfect
imitation of the practiced four-
some guest gospel group.
School age big brother Austin
surprised grandma Paula by
saying he'd be a preacher
when he grows up.
Blueberries are plentiful but
they are still green. We are one
month from the June 4 Blue-
berry Festival. George Scott
remembers that a year ago
Bonnie picked hands full of
ripe blue blueberries in this
first week of May. Other grow-
ers agree that the season could
be about two weeks behind.
Blueberry bushes do okay with


the excess of water we have
had, though. The slimmest
year for blueberries was the

1 . ,


year we had suffered nearly
drought conditions and even
then we had enough berries to
see us through the festival. We
dare hope supply will meet de-
mand this year too.
This is the time of year that
Pasco Jarvis hopes the road-
side mowing crew will spare
the black-eyed-susan (coriop-
sis) surrounding his home.
Priscilla Williamson's home is
nestled between coriopsis beds
now. Our "Don't Mow" part of
our yard produced flocks of
phlox first and now the coriop-
sis are showy. I had a golden
bouquet of them on my dining
room table for a meal with
guests on Saturday very satis-
factorily. Jacks says I could
have seen an indigo bunting or
maybe it was a blue grosbeak.
They are both migrating
through here now. It's a differ-
ent blue than the bluebird, but
just as startling and wonderful.
We have identified the summer
tanager's song so we watch for
our first sighting.
Special day this week is
Thursday, National Day of
Prayer: One nation under God.
AMEN! Saturday Wellborn
Community Association hon-
ors all vets with an invitation
to eat FREE at this month's
Blueberry Pancake Breakfast.

Baby Girl


Continued From Page 1A

children of Carter and his beloved wife, Mary, Jeanie was
only four when her daddy died. She doesn't remember a lot
from those dark days, but a photo on the front of the album of
the father and daughter together tells it all. The pretty little
wide-eyed girl, Jeanie, stands in her daddy's lap, her arm
wrapped around her daddy's neck with a look of pure satisfac-
tion on her face. Theirs was a connection that has carried
Jeanie through 43 years of life, a life that has experienced tur-
moil and pain at times. But through it all, when the going got
rough, the burning desire to do something to honor her
father's wonderful legacy is what kept her going.
When she was in her 20s, Jeanie took up the guitar and
taught herself to play, something she never thought she had
a talent for. Doubtful she could sing, she began singing
along with her playing. It was soon obvious that Carter
Stanley had left behind a talent in his baby girl. It was just
a matter of time before Jeanie, encouraged by family and
friends, left behind her job, her home and the town she
grew up in, Live Oak, Florida, and headed to where Blue-
grass abounds on every mountain side, Virginia and Ten-
nessee. She formed a Bluegrass band, scheduled dates and
began showing the world she was a Bluegrass talent worthy
of the Stanley name. But, it wasn't for herself. It was all for
her beloved father. When personal problems brought the
budding career to an end in 1994, Jeanie returned home to
Live Oak and re-evaluated her life. Several years and a di-
vorce later, she found the love of her life, Davey Allinder,
in Lake City, and the two were married. With Davey's love
and encouragement, she began thinking about doing this al-
bum to honor her father. Now, it's a reality.
Jeanie's brothers, Carter, Bill, Bobby and sister, Doris
Stanley Bradley, all have supported her in her efforts to
complete the album to honor their father, although none of
them had a desire to follow their Stanley heritage in the
music business.
After their father's death Dec. 1, 1966, the Stanley family
continued to live in Live Oak where their father had per-
formed on the Suwannee River Jamboree for years, a Blue-
grass radio program that went out to 26 states and was pro-
duced from a tobacco warehouse in downtown Live Oak.
When their mother, Mary, passed away Nov. 4, 1990, they
took her home to the mountains of Virginia where the Stan-
ley Brothers were born and buried her beside her beloved
husband, Carter. Jeanie says losing her mother was the most
difficult time of her life, an experience that likely has ma-
tured her to the point where she can now sing the mountain
Bluegrass songs her father wrote with deep understanding.
Of the 14 songs on the tribute album, Carter wrote all but
"Dream Of A Miner's Child," Jeanie states. Because she
wanted to recreate as closely as she could the way her fa-
ther sang Bluegrass, she rehearsed the songs on the album
for nearly a year before going into the recording studio at
Maggard Sound Studio in Big Stone Gap, VA in August of
2003, particularly one special song. "I tried to do it as close
to the original way the Stanley Brothers did it back then,"
Jeanie said of "The Fields Have Turned Brown," a song on
the alburn tha&e hoes-the haunting soundsiof mountain'.: .-',
Bluegrass' The song itself reflects the plain way mountain
folk speak of life, saying that mama and daddy are now
dead and the fields of their home place have all turned
brown, meaning life is much dimmer now. "I figured if that
was the way he wanted it, that was the best way," she said


of the way her father sang the music she recorded.
Jeanie said she's been told the album will be a hit, partic-
ularly with songs like the Bluegrass honky tonk rendition of
"Two Sides To A Story." Carter wrote this song, scratched
on an old threadbare, faded piece of paper, but it was never
published or recorded, just like "Jesus Is Precious," a
gospel song with a Bluegrass flavor. Jeanie, accompanied
by Ralph II sings "Two Sides To A Story." It's clear on this
song that Jeanie is ready to sing with the best of them as
she sings lead with Ralph II harmonizing with her on this
song that talks about cheating that's not so one-sided. Fami-
ly friend Joe Isaacs put the melody to the words. Ralph.
sings "Jesus Is Precious" a cappella with a haunting, moun-
tain-born voice that has the listener betting that anyone who
can sing a gospel song with that much sincerity must surely
know God on a very personal basis. "We all just stood there
with our mouths wide open while he sang that song," Jeanie
said of her beloved uncle's solo performance on the previ-
ously unrecorded song.
"Lonesome River" features Jeanie with Ralph and Ralph
II singing harmony, the only song on the album where all
three sing together. It's a perfect example of the natural-
born ability to harmonize with one's close blood relatives in
a way no others can. Just a who-she-is-type-of-girl, Jeanie
has a way'of saying things that reflects her heritage. "I had
to kill two cats and a goat to get that high baritone!" she
says as she laughs while describing her efforts to reach the
high baritone notes to harmonizes with her uncle and cousin
on this one, something she seems to accomplishes easily on
the album.
As you listen to the banjo, fiddle, mandolin and guitar
music and the songs sung in the Bluegrass, plaintive words
of a man who came to the music world from a Virginia
mountainside, it's sometimes chilling. You begin to
feel you've been picked up and whisked awiay to
some unknown time on the side of a mountain as
soulful songs pour out the unchained emotions of
the mountain-born Carter Stanley. The feeling is
exhilarating, yet mystic, and it leaves you A wanting
more and more as you play the album over and
over, savoring every song, every word, know ing
you are experiencing something remarkable. When
Jeanie sings with her father's voice from a li\ e
recording The Stanley Brothers made at the Uni\ersity
of Chicago Folk Festival in February of 1961. \ on feel
the warmth, the sense of the two finally being to-
gether after all these years. It's an experience
Jeanie said she waited her entire life for. "I \ as
so nervous singing with him on that song,"
she said. "Listen to that voice, it's live,
not out of a recording studio," a tear in
her voice as she brags of her father's
silky smooth performance back in the
days when musicians and singers per-
formed live and never got a second
chance to hit the right note and mixing
studios were unheard of. "I'm so proud
of this," she says, adding, "My father
been killed thb most natural Bluegrass lead
singer Bluegrass music history has ever ,
known." a':,
As the album comes to an end, Jeanie speaks to her fa-
ther...."Daddy, this album is dedicated to you..." she says as
she continues her conversation with her father who died and

It's not you, it's me. OK, it's you. Like the fact that you didn't give
me an automatic minute credit for dropped calls. I mean, it's
your network. And what about letting me change plans without
extending my contract? We had a good run and all, but I really
didn't appreciate you tying me down to such a commitment.
Shouldn't I be allowed to change my mind? And why didn't you
give me unlimited calls home from my cell phone? You know
how important my family is to me.

I just can't go on like this anymore. I've found another company
that understands my needs and treats me with respect. I mean,
once you find that, what's not to love?

left her 39 years ago.
"I am just grateful to God I finally accomplished what I
wanted to do for such a long time," Jeanie says of the expe-
rience. "I've lived through divorce, trials and tribulations to
get this done, including the loss of my mother, which was
probably the worst time of my life. " I don't know what I
expected when we went into the studio, but I'm totally
pleased and thrilled with the outcome," she said with satis-
faction. "We were not alone in that studio, Carter Stanley's
presence was right there with us. He was right there in that
room!" she said.
Jeanie said she doesn't think she could have done the al-
bum justice until this point in her life.
" I am accustomed to a routine type life, and I like to
sleep in the same bed every night. If this album begins a
new career for me in music, so be it," she says. "If it does-
n't, that's OK too. I've done what I set out to do, honor my
father." She says "It's all about my father, this is for him!"
Produced by Joe Isaacs for CMH Records, the album will
be available in stores June 21. Be sure to get yours quickly.
Jeanie will be attending the 34th Annual Carter Stanley Fes-
tival in Virginia held in Carter Stanley's honor and hosted
by Dr. Ralph Stanley on Memorial Day weekend. Jeanie
will be there in person to sing some of the songs from the
album. A website is in the process of being created at this
time, soon to be finished, www.jeaniestanley.com. that will
tell you where the album can be purchased. Albums are also
available at Ralph Stanley concerts.

whiff of what Nobles said he
thought was a marijuana
smell, it led to two arrests.
According to a report by
Nobles, he asked Strickland if
there were any drugs in the
car but Strickland wouldn't
answer. Nobles asked Strick-
land's passenger, Altrice
Mashan Mitchell, no age giv-
en, also of Tallahassee, who
also refused to answer. A
search of the car led to the dis-
covery of two small plastic
bags between the front seat in
the console, Nobles said. The
substance inside is believed to
be marijuana, Nobles wrote in
his report.


Both Strickland and
Mitchell were arrested and
charged with possession of
less than 20 grams of marijua-
na after officers from the
Suwannee County Sheriffs
Office, Florida Highway Pa-
trol and Office of the Agricul-
ture Law Enforcement divi-
sion worked the case. Deputy
Scott Sena discovered more
than $2,500 in cash inside the
vehicle, which was taken into
custody as evidence.
Oh, and the accident was
cleared after several hours and
traffic returned to normal.

Plentifuls Show

Abundant Fall

Harvest

Gainesville - October plen-
tifuls reflect an abundant fall
harvest. The USDA Plentiful
Foods List includes apples, po-
tatoes, rice, dry beans, pork,
and cheese. Here's a quick pre-
view of production prospects
for these foods in October from
the Florida Agricultural Ex-
tension Service.
APPLES - The nation's new
apple crop is expected to total
nearly 120 million bushels or
5,426 million pounds. This is
slightly above last year's har-
vest but more than 8 per cent
less than average.
POTATOES - October is
the chief harvest month for
late-summer and fall potatoes.
Shoppers can select from an
estimated 246.6 million hun-
dredweight of potatoes. This is
5 per cent below last year's
large crop but 7 per cent more
than average.
RICE - Production is indi-
cated at 111,563,000 hundred-
weight. This is 24 per cent
above the 1967 record crop and
50 per cent above the recent 5
year average.
DRY BEANS The harvest of
dry beans is forecast at 18.4
million hundredweight. This
crop will be about 19 per cent
above a year earlier and slight-
ly more than average.
PORK - Hog slaughter will
increase seasonally this fall
and prices are expected to de-
cline from. summer levels.
CHEESE - Production of
all types of cheese made from
whole milk totaled 1 billion, 33
million pounds in the first 6
months of the current year.
That's almost 1.8 per cent
above a year ago. Conimercial
holdings of cheese on July 31
were 407 million pounds.

Johnson takes second at state


Janet Schrader-Seccafico
Democrat Reporter
Three Suwannee track stars
traveled all the way to Coral
Springs to compete in the state
track meet Saturday, April 30.
Bruce Johnson took second
place in the 110 high hurdle
event. Johnson took home two
medals. He also placed fourth in
the long jump.
This was Johnson's second
trip to state to compete in this
event. Last year it rained off
and on all day, creating a slip-
pery track. Johnson suffered a
fall in the finals after winning
the preliminary heat and did not
place. This year was different.
Johnson placed second with a
blistering time of 14.34. This
beat his time of 14.40 in region-
al competition.
.Johnson took home fourth
place honors in the long jump.

hold summer camp-Harmony in the Streets


The local Police Athletic
League will be working in
conjunction with Florida Sher-
iffs Youth Ranches to host a

in the Streets. Suwannee's lo-
cal PAL was chosen as one of
the sites for the camps which

Harmony in the Streets pro-
gram is to teach children
healthy ways to resolve dis-
putes, to build respect between
different groups of children
and to reduce violence


The camp is for kids be-
tween the ages of six and 12.
Sign up soon because they are
only taking the first 60 kids.
The camp will be at the Dou-
glass Center gym. Florida
Sheriff's Youth Ranches will
provide the instructors. There
will be many activities and


games including sports, out-
door activities, environmental
education, arts and crafts and
life skills.
The camp will run from 8-5.
You can sign up at the Dou-
glass Center gym between 4
p.m. and 6 p.m. or call PAL at
364-2906.

Osteoporosis Prevention and Treatment
While no cure exists for osteoporosis, there are steps to prevent it or to
slow or stop its progress. An imbalance in the bone cycle causes bone
loss that eventually leads to osteoporosis and fracture risk. Adequate
calcium, vitamin D, appropriate exercise and, in some cases, medication
are important for maintaining bone health. Currently, bisphosphonates
(Fosamax, Actonel, and Boniva), calcitonin (Miacalcin), estrogens, par-
athyroid hormone (Forteo) and raloxifene (Evista) are approved by the
FDA for the prevention and/or treatment of osteoporosis. The
bisphosphonates (alendronate and risedronate), calcitonih, estrogens and
raloxifene prevent bone tissue from dissolving, and bone density may
increase over time. Forteo, a form of parathyroid hormone, is a newly
approved osteoporosis medication. It is one of the first osteoporosis
medications to increase the rate of bone formation, the other path to
higher bone density.
People cannot feel their bones getting stronger or weaker, so it is
important as we age to monitor our bone status. If you have questions
about any of these precentative/treatment therapies, including the newer
Boniva and Forteo, talk to your local pharmacist or physician on your
next visit. 163609-F

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: Are women more susceptible to gum
disease than men?
A: There are certain times in a woman's
life when she may be more susceptible to
gum disease. The changes a woman
goes through, puberty and menopause
among them, pregnancy and menstrual
cycles also, cause hormonal changes in
the body. Those changes may require a
woman to adjust heidiet and exercise
patterns. For instance, as we all know,
pregnant women tend to snack a lot. It's
important for them to avoid sugary, sticky
snacks. The changes can affect many of
the tissues in-the body, including the
gums. The gums can become unusually
sensitive and can react strongly to
hormonal fluctuations. All this can leave a
woman vulnerable to gum disease.
Studies have also shown that pregnant
women with gum disease are far more
likely to deliver pre-term, low birthweight
babies. If you are a woman, talk to your
dentist about any special steps you
should take to maintain good oral health
while going through the different periods
of your life.

Keaton Beach


Seems lately the weath-
er is the object of conver-
sation rather than the fish-
ing.
Can we get a break, Or
what?
It would be nice to get a
few days to fish without
having a 25 knot w-i-n-d
thrown in to stir every-
thing up so. Much less a
weekend?
This week's warmer
weather should greatly im-
prove the trout bite with
fish still expected to be
holding in 4-5 feet on aver-
age.
Between storms a few
folks have caught some
fish.
The trout are pretty
much holding around 4-5
feet trying to commit to
shallower water, yet afraid
they will be disappointed
and have to move back out
again. It is hard to find a
reliable "bite" inside of
three-and-a-half feet of
water.
Friday, Phil and Karen
Hemdon ofAdel, Ga. had
eight trout in 4-5 ft. using
Assassin's Calcasieu
Brew, Space Guppy and
Chicken Bone split tail
shads and sea shads.
Last week C.J. Alex and
Chris Johnson of Valdosta,
Ga. caught their limit of
trout on jigs under Cajun
Thunders.
Marshall and Kay
Hughes were down from
Valdosta, this weekend
and managed a limit of
trout from 5-6 feet of water
using candy corn sea shads
and live shrimp under Ca-
jun Thunders.
Sunday, Bob and Deb-
bie Edwards of Live Oak
had their limit using live
pinfish under Cajun Thun-
ders in 4-5 feet of water.
Sunday and Monday
Craig Bozeman and his
buddy Pat Johson of Grif-
fin, Ga. were down and
they had a limit of trout
throwing Bomber Long
A's size 15 in several pat-
terns. Craig said they
caught and threw back
over fifty shorts on Mon-
day with no fish over 20
inches in two days. He
said he had yet to catch a
fish in less than three feet
of water. He surmised the
moon tides must have the
trout "upset?"
I took brothers, Dick
and Luther Bessemer of
Oldsmar and Tarpon
Springs out, Monday
and we found all our
trout cooperative to
hit a live pinfish or a
pinfish strip under a


Cajun Thunder in four plus feet,
never in over five feet and never
under four feet.
Last week, opening day of red
snapper season, was Thursday,
and Terrell Smith of Perry, Allen
Smith ofArabi, Ga. and I went
with Billy Pillow of the Woods
'N Water TripleFish Team Tri-
ton boat and caught our limit of
red snapper, to five pounds (Ter-
rell), seven black snapper, to
seven pounds (Alan) and seven
gag grouper to 18.75 pounds
(Terrell again). We fished with
live pinfish, frozen cigar min-
nows, mackerel, and squid in ..
. well, if I told you I'd have to
kill you so let's just say 45 feet
of water, on squid of course.

Gordon Guns for
third straight
Daytona win
Jeff Gordon is accustomed
to etching his name in rac-
ing's record books. During
the 47th annual Pepsi 400 on
Saturday, July 2.at historic
Daytona International
Speedway, the 2005 Daytona
500 champion will have an-
other opportunity to put his
name in Daytona Interna-
tional Speedway's record
books right next to racing
legend Cale Yarborough.
The driver of the No. 24
DuPont Automotive Finishes
Chevrolet will be gunning
for three-in-a-row at "The
World Center of Racing" in
the exciting mid-summer
classic under the lights.
Gordon has won the previ-
ous two NASCAR NEXTEL
Cup Series points events at
the legendary 2.5-mile tri-
oval - the 2004 Pepsi 400
and the 2005 Daytona 500.
The only driver who accom-
plished three straight victo-
ries at Daytona was Yarbor-
ough, who won the 1967
Pepsi 400 and the 1968 Day-
tona 500 and Pepsi 400.
"With this team that I have
behind me and the momen-
tum that we have on restric-
tor plates, I know that when
we come back here no matter
what car it is, we're going to


have a shot at winning this
race," Gordon said. "We're
certainly on a roll. What I
love about Daytona is it be-
comes a handling race track
as well. Especially in July, it
gets warm and the track gets
-slick even though it's a night
race. I think one thing we
pride ourselves in is great
handling cars, not just fast
cars. Certainly I'm looking
forward to coming back here
but we've got a lot of racing
to do until then."

Elliott Sadler and
Scott Riggs Earn
Budweiser
Shootout
Starting Berths
Elliott Sadler and Scott
Riggs were the latest drivers
to have qualified for the
2006 Budweiser Shootout.
After missing this year's
Budweiser Shootout, Sadler
secured his invite by win-
ning the pole at Bristol Mo-
tor Speedway while Riggs
earned his first Budweiser
Shootout starting berth with
a pole at Martinsville Speed-
way.
Other drivers that have
won pole positions during
the 2005 season and quali-
fied for the 2006 Budweiser
Shootout include Jeff Gor-
don, Dale Jarrett, Kyle
Busch and Ryan Newman.
Past Budweiser Shootout
champions eligible are 2004
Daytona 500 winner Dale
Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie John-
son, Tony Stewart, Mark
Martin, Rusty Wallace, Ken
Schrader, Bill Elliott and
Terry Labonte.

mission (FWC) is relaunch-
ing the agency's official
magazine and is set to dis-
tribute the first regular issue
in May.
"This has been an exciting
return to tradition," said
Roger Chapin, chairman of
the magazine's advisory
council. "On every page, we
have tried to convey the


beauty and highlight the
recreational opportunities
Florida has to offer."
The FWC published the
last issue of the magazine in
late 2003. Florida Wildlife
had been in circulation since
June 1947, but it was discon-
tinued due to lack of fund-
ing. 'That changed during
the 2004 legislative session
after Rep. Andy Gardiner
and former Rep. Joe Spratt,
championed the effort to res-
urrect the publication.
"The Florida Wildlife
magazine has promoted our
state's unique natural beauty
and wildlife for more than 56
years, and I felt it was im-
portant to continue the tradi-


tion," Gardiner said.
The FWC will publish the
revamped magazine bi-
monthly. Readers will find
its 36 pages packed with arti-
cles devoted to hunting and
fishing, as well as boating,
camping, wildlife viewing
and other forms of outdoor
recreation available in the
state. Kelly Broderick,
Florida Wildlife editor, said
it's this-focus on Florida that
sets the magazine apart.
"Florida has so much to of-
fer, from its breathtaking
landscape and wildlife to its
talented pool of photogra-
phers, artists and writers,"
Broderick said. "We really
try to showcase these assets
with our selection of content
and contributors, so don't be
surprised if you see your
neighbor's name in our
pages."
Previous subscribers will
notice something new among
the pages - advertising. By
including paid ads, the FWC
will offset part of the cost of
publishing Florida Wildlife.
People who wish to sub-
scribe should call 1-866-967-
5600 (toll-free) or visit the
magazine's Web site, Flori-
daWildlifeMagazine.com.
Until June 30, subscriptions
will cost $15 per year. After
that, an annual subscription
will cost $19.95.

AGRICULTURE NEWS

New UF/IFAS study shows double-digit increases for most Florida farmland values


By Chuck Woods,
April 4, 2005

352- 378-8966,
JohnR @nrpsfbresters, corn
The value of agricultural
land continued to increase in
all areas of the state last year,
buoyed by a population boom
and strong nonagricultural de-
mand for land, according to a
new University of Florida sur-
vey.
"Following recent trends,
the market for agricultural
land was very active this past
year, and the rate of increase
in land values was particularly
high in the southern'regions of
the state," said John Reynolds,
a professor emeritus with UF's


Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences. "ln most land-
value categories, we recorded
double-digit increases."
He said the most prominent
changes occurred in South
Florida where the value of
cropland increased by 58 per-
cent and pastureland values
jumped by 76 percent. The
largest increases were in the
Indian River area, Okee-
chobee County and the Gulf
Coast counties.
Cropland and pastureland in
other regions also experienced
substantial increases: 19 to 25
percent in the central region of
the state, 10 to 19 percent in
the northwest region and 9 to
15 percent in the northeast re-


gion.

He also measures the value
of transition land - acreage be-
ing converted or likely to be
converted to nonagricultural
sites for homes, subdivisions
and commercial uses. Coun-
ties were divided into metro-
politan and non-metropolitan
-ii" -- counties, and transition land
.values were estimated for each
. - region.
. . , The value of transition land
within five miles of a major
town in metropolitan counties
increased by 7 to 13 percent in
northern regions of the state
and by 6 to 52 percent in
southern regions. In dollar
amounts, the value of transi-
S tion land in metro counties
ranged from $14,082 to
$24,983 per acre, except in the
southeast region of the state
.... where transition land values
were $62,500 per acre.
The value of transition land
more than five miles from a
major town in metro counties
ranged from $7,950 to
$14,352 per acre, except in the
southeast where the value was
$36,250 per acre.
In non-metro counties, the
rsity of Flori- value of transition land within
valuess survey five miles of a major town
nues to push ranged from $4,793 to $6,778
per acre. Transition land more


than five miles from a major
town ranged from $3,921 to
$5,446 per acre.
For the 2004 study, six
counties were reclassified.
Reynolds said the changes in
the northwest include moving
Jefferson and Wakulla coun-
ties into the Tallahassee met-
ropolitan statistical area
(MSA), which is a federal des-
ignation for urban or urbaniz-
ing areas. In the northeast re-
gion, Gilchrist County was
moved into the Gainesville
MSA, and Flagler County was
removed from adjacent MSA
counties. In the southern re-
gion, Indian River County was
designated as the Vero Beach
MSA.
"It is important to empha-
size that the value of a specif-
ic tract of land may vary sub-
stantially from the survey esti-
mates because of the physical
characteristics of the tract, its
location and the economic or
institutional factors that re-
strict its use," Reynolds said.
"The survey measured land
values up to May 2004, and it
does not include any changes
in land values that may have
occurred after last year's hur-
ricane season."
The 2004 Florida Agricul-
tural Land Value Survey also
shows:
* Last year, the value of
cropland and pastureland in
the south region increased
from $1,100 to $1,400 per
acre. The value of improved
pasture was higher in the cen-
tral region than in other re-
gions. The lowest agricultural
land values were reported in
the northwest region, ranging
from $1,450 per acre for
unimproved pasture to $2,193
per acre for irrigated cropland.
* The value of irrigated
cropland was $3,901 per acre
in the south region, $3,709 in
the central region, and $3,428
in the. northeast region. The
value of non-irrigated crop-
land was $3,237 in the central


region, $2,657 in the northeast
region and $1,983 in the
northwest region.
* The value of improved
pasture ranged from $3,608
per acre in the central region
to $1,783 per acre in the north-
west region. The value of
unimproved pasture ranged
from $2,605 per acre in the
south region to $1,451 in the
northwest region.
* The value of farm woods
increased by 18 percent in the
northwest region of the state
and by 16 percent in the north-
east region.
Survey respondents were
asked if they expect agricul-
tural land values to be higher,
lower or remain unchanged
during the next 12 months.
Eighty-five percent of the re-
spondents in northern areas
and 67 percent of the respon-
dents in south region expect
land values to increase during
the next year. Only 2 percent
expect lower land values dur-
ing the next 12 months. Re-
spondents in the southeast re-
gion said that they expect land
values to increase by 30 per-
cent, primarily because of
strong urban demands.
The annual food and re-
source economics department
survey, which Reynolds start-
ed in 1985, was compiled
from information provided by
190 respondents from around
the state. Respondents includ-
ed property appraisers, farm
lenders, real estate brokers,
farm managers, land investors,
federal farm-assistance and
conservation staff, UF/IFAS
extension agents, and others
who develop and maintain in-
formation about rural land val-
ues.

ues to Increase" (FE 545), are

FAMU will hold Viticulture Day

in Tallahassee May 25


The FAMU Grape Growers
Field Day has traditionally
been a time when the Florida
and Southern Georgia grape
growers could come to FAMU
to see first hand the various re-
search and technology ad-
vances being made in the grape
industry. However, during the
past two or three years the Tal-
lahassee and surrounding com-
munities have become increas-
ingly interested in learning
more about the viticulture pro-
gram from a family perspec-
tive. Additionally, because the
August time frame tends to
conflict with a busy harvesting
period for growers, this year the
field day has been split into two
events, Viticulture Day, May 25
targeting growers and Grape
and Small Fruits Field Day,,
Aug. 19 focusing on the fami-
ly/community oriented format.
Information on the August
Field Day will be announced
later.
The Viticulture Field Day
will be held from 8:45 a.m.-3
p.m., Wednesday, May 25 at the
Viticulture Center in Tallahas-
see.
Horticulturist/Plant Breeder
Dr. Bobby R. Phills, Coordina-
tor, will open the meting in the
conference room at 8:45 a.m.
followed by greetings and re-
marks from various officials at

vationist, USDA-NRCS will
discuss conservation program
opportunities for Florida grape
growers at 9:15 a.m.
Vineyard Field research and
demonstration plots will follow
in 20 minute segments begin-
ning at 9:30 a.m.:
Plant Breeder/Molecular Ge-
neticist Dr. Jiang Lu will re-
view promising grape breeding
lines and process for releasing
new varieties;
V!uculturist Biotecinologist
Dr. Violeta Colova will present
perspective grape training/trel-
lis management practices and
growth tendency of Cynthiana
grape cultivar in Florida; and
Entomologist/Chemical Engi-
neer Dr. Raymond Hix will dis-
cuss the Viticulture Spray Pro-
gram Guide.
After a break from 11-11:30
a.m., a discussion of the most
frequently asked questions will
begin in the conference room at
11:30 a.m. and continue with a
working lunch break from noon
until 1 p.m. (bronze bag) and a
sampling of Florida industry
wines.
Viticulture presentations con-
tinue at 1 p.m. with Plant
Pathologist/Bacterial Physiolo-
gist Dr. Breno Leite presenting
an overview of Pierce's disease
and other common vineyard
disease in Florida; followed by
Biochemist/Biotechnologist Dr.
Mehboob Sheikh with a presen-
tation on genetic variation in
xylem composition and neu-
traceutical compounds among
grape genotypes.
A tour of laboratory facilities
and on-going experiments by
graduate student tour guides
will begin at 2 p.m. with ad-
journment at 3 p.m.
The goals of the field days
are:
* To familiarize and promote
greater understanding about the
Viticulture Center's mission,
goals and objectives to Florida
grape growers and processors;

AGRICULTURE NEWS
Brevard law enforcement officer charged
with setting fire Bronson announces


Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson today an-
nounced the arrest of a Brevard
County deputy sheriff in an in-
vestigation arising out of a
string of wildfires in the coun-
ty beginning two months ago.
Charged with intentional or
reckless burning of lands, a
felony, and illegal possession
of an incendiary device, a mis-
demeanor, was Deputy Henry


Schook, 28. He was booked
into the Brevard County Jail on
$5,000 bond and immediately
placed on administrative leave.
According to investigators
with Bronson's Office of Agri-
cultural Law Enforcement,
Schook was arrested at about
2:30 this morning, after both
air and ground surveillance
watching his moves spotted
him setting a fire while on pa-
trol. The fire was set by a flare


that the suspect pulled out of
the trunk of his patrol car, offi-
cers said. ,
Bronson said his Office of
Agricultural Law Enforcement
has been investigating the offi-
cer since shortly after the de-
partment's Division of Forestry
reported that an indeterminate
number of suspicious wildland
fires occurred in the Townsend
Road area of the country in ear-
ly February. While the current


charges against Schook involve
only a single fire set earlier to-
day, evidence from previous
fire scenes has been collected
and currently is being analyzed
at the State Fire Marshal's lab
in Tallahassee.
The Brevard County Sher-
iff's Department assisted in the
investigation and helped Bron-
son's agency gather evidence
in the case, the Commissioner
said.

Tire Mart joined the TireStarz
program just three years ago
and has been enjoying success
ever since.
Tire Mart is located on US
90 West.
In the past three years, busi-
ness has grown more than 20
percent each year.
In October, 2004, owner Jim
Burke decided it was time to
take his business to a new lev-
el.
Burke built a 9,000-square-
foot warehouse to hold his in-
creased inventory of Bridge-
stone, Firestone, Fuzion and
Dayton tires.
The warehouse has plenty
of room for wheels, trailer
hitches, lift kits and other high
demand items that were not
stocked in the past due to
room constraints.
Tire Mart also doubled its
nine-bay store into an 18-bay
super center during the six-
month construction phase. The
store now has an extended bay
for motor home access.
Two express bays are used
for oil changes or to mount
and balance a complete set of
four tires in less than 25 min-
utes.
After opening the extra nine
bays, Tire Mart's business in-
creased an astounding 30 per-
cent over 90 days and gross
profit is up almost 50 percent
for the same time period.
Tire Mart's second location
in Chiefland has been success-
fully operating for more than
four years, and Burke is cur-
rently looking for other
growth opportunities in the
North Florida market.
Burke gives credit to
TireStarz for his success:
"TireStarz was the partner we
needed to become the success
story we are today."

CNHI News Service
Cinco de Mayo is here and with it
yet another way to get friends to-
gether for a relaxing evening in the
back yard or on the deck. t
For many May 5 means margari- , .
tas and beer at the center of the
celebration. For others it means an-
other reason to get out those fa-
vorite Mexican recipes or stop by
the family's favorite Mexican restau-
rant.
Many of the recipes used for Cin-
co de Mayo utilize the avocado. Av-
ocados are the' perfect choice for
celebrating, whether you are plan-
ning to cook with them or use them n
drinks. Avocados are a delicious addition.
They may be eaten with just lemon juice
and a sprinkling of salt, or they can be used to
add flavor to a main dish or garnish to other dishes.
Amidst the Mariachi music, beer and margaritas.
37.6 million pounds of avocados are expected to be con-
sumed this Cinco de Mayo, mostly in the form of guacamole,
according to Haas Avocado Board.
Guacamole is the No. 1 way to en,oy avocados, but certainly not
the only way. Avocados are the perfect addition to a variety of Cinco
de Mayo dishes like tacos, burritos, lostadas and nachos.
Try topping chicken, fish or steak with avocado and black-bean sal-
sa, or add the delicious green fruit to a blender of margaritas to make
the "AvoRita," a'creamy twist on the traditional margarita.
Avocados add luxurious texture and lively color, transforming other
wise ordinary dishes into culinary fiestas.
Fabulous Fiesta Guacamole can be made easily at home and differs
from most guacamole recipes with its additions of corn, cilantro leaves
jalapeno Jack cheese and red peppers.
And if there is any room left after consuming all the chips and mar-
garitas one can stand for one evening, a recipe for a special ending to
any Mexican meal, the Flan, (a Spanish egg custard) is included.
So break out your sombreros and serapes, and let's eat!

cheese and cilantro, and they're ready to pass around.

Salsa Cruda
Salsa Cruda means "uncooked" salsa. You can vary the amount of
heat in your salsa by either increasing or decreasing the amount of
jalapenos. Remember that most hot peppers contain their heat in their
seeds, so less seeds in the finished product, less heat.
Ingredients
1 tablespoon minced garlic
4 large tomatoes
2 bunches, chopped cilantro
2 large onions
1 small green bell pepper
2-3 (more or less to taste) chopped jalapefio peppers
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
Directions
If using a food processor, puree 1 tomato and the garlic together. Add
other ingredients and process to a coarse chop.
If not using a food processor, chop all ingredients and mix together.
Serve salsa as a relish, garnish or a dip for tortilla chips.


SQuinoa-Corn Salad
Ingredients '
1 cup raw quinoa*, well rinsed
1 cup thawed frozen corn kernels

How to find an
Obstetrician-Gynecologist
Deciding who should be your obstetrician-gynecologist (OB-GYN) is a decision that
shouldn't be taken lightly. After all, this person will be bringing your baby into the world, so
you want to trust, feel comfortable with, and like this person.
One way to learn about OB-GYNs in your area is to call your local hospital's labor and
delivery department and ask to speak to the labor and delivery charge nurse, according to a tip
from the forum on OBGYN.net, an online resource for women's health, obstetrics, gynecology
and infertility. A sonographer on the forum advises that once you have the nurse on the line, tell
her you're new in town and ask her for several references.
Mark Lawson, a sonogarpher, says that you should also call back and speak with the other
charge nurses to hear their references. Any matching referrals are likely to be good doctors. You
can also call the chief residents of the OB-GYN department at the hospitals near you and ask
who they would choose to see if they had your condition. Other options are checking with
family and friends to see who they've used and if they would recommend them again.
If you don't come up with any good names on your own, try calling the American College of
Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) at (202) 638-5577, or visiting their Web site at
www.acog.org, to get names of board-certified OB-GYNs in your area.
Once you have some names, you need to set up an introductory in-person interview with each
doctor so he or she can answer any questions you may have. Call all of your references directly
to set up a time to meet. At this time, it's also advisable to check if the doctor accepts your
insurance plan. This will help you narrow down your choices. Remember, most physicians have
only about 10 to 15 minutes to spare for an interview. If the interview takes longer, some
physicians may charge a consultation fee. Always call to confirm your appointment the day of,
as the doctor may have
been called away to
deliver a baby.
Here are some
questions you may want
to ask during your
interview.
S .. THE BASICS
SHow long has the doctors
' ' practiced obstetrics?
I-'. L .Approximately how
many babies has the
Doctor delivered?
SHow much time does
..'. :. -&1*' 'f he/she allow for each
prenatal visit?
S How long is the average
. 1 W office wait?
S. What percentage of his
own patients does he
� , perform deliveries in any
given month?
There are many How can you reach the
doctor in an emergency?
SIs the doctor in a solo or
group practice? If solo,
who. covers fbr him when
he's unavailable? If
group, how often will
you see other doctors
within that group?
PRENATAL CARE
SWhat tests does she
routinely perform during
a pregnancy?
. How much experience
There are many factors to consider when choosing an OB-GYN. While does she have with high-
referrals are always helpful, it's best to do your own research and risk pregnancies?
meet with the doctor in person. That way, you can determine whether . What kind of childbirth
or not this person makes you feel comfortable, classes does she
recommend?
LABOR AND DELIVERY
SDoes he or one of his partners meet you at the hospital when you're in labor?
- At what point in your labor does he come to the hospital, and who will be in charge of your
care until then?
- What does he suggest to help you deal with labor pain?
SWhat procedures does he.routinely perform at the hospital (i.e. enemas, continuous fetal
monitoring, IVs, episiotomies, etc.)? What if you want something else, can he do that as well?
SWill he help you develop a birth plan?
SIf you have complications or need a cesarean, who is the backup obstetrician?
SHow often does he perform c-sections? What is the frequency of this procedure for the group
as a whole?
- Does he perform VBACs (vaginal births after cesareans)? What is his rate of success with this
procedure?
After the interview, here are some questions you need to ask yourself.
SDid you feel comfortable with the doctor?
� If your partner went with you to the interview, did the doctor make an effort to include him or
her as well?
Is the office convenient for you to get to?
SHow long did you have to wait?
* How helpful were the nurses and support staff at the office?
If you have a serious medical or obstetrical problem that will require attention above and
beyond the usual prenatal care, consider seeing a perinatologist. A perinatologist is a specialist
in maternal-fetal health.
Only after you figure out what your needs are, which OB-GYN can provide you with the right
coverage, and which one fits best with your personality, can you feel confident in your choice
and make that first appointment.

The Spiritual


Tsunami
It was a dreadful day,
December 26, 2004.
The Tsunami came without notice.
The ocean ripped and tore.
No warnings, no lookouts,
no specials on TV
As huge and ravaging waves
came forth out of the sea.
Not a soul was ready,
and many wondered why.
In the distance could be heard,
the sound of bitter cries.
The victims of the tsunami were caught
completely off guard.
It happened right here on our earth,
thousands wounded, killed and scarred.
But there's a spiritual tsunami,
why can't our witness tell.
When the lost from Christ are gathered,
in that raging, burning hell.
Strange reasoning, don't you think?
How you know God's Holy Word.
And when you try to share the truth,
not a single heart is stirred.
Hell comes without warning,
to those who know not Jesus Christ.
And they'll be separated from God,
for eternal life.
You can't be good enough or rich enough,
or do anything of your own.
The way to heaven is ONLY JESUS:
He's the one who takes you home.
We must give folks the warning,
so they can have a choice.
It's proven: some will listen,
to the witness of our voice.
Thank You Lord,
Kathy Wilson

HOPE
By Pam Campbell
Sometimes in our lives we wonder if we are
going to make it another day for many different
reasons: sickness, finances, family situations,
too many responsibilities, school problems,
problems on the job or lack of a job, stress, wor-
ry, fear or many other things that happen in a
person's life. No matter what is happening in
your life, or to those around yoti, God has
promised you hope. Hope for today, hope for
tomorrow, and hope for eternity. God is our
only hope, but He is all we need; His hope. is
more than enough! In John 10:10 we read: "The
thief comes to steal, kill and destroy; but I have
come that they might have life and life more
abundantly." You see, all of us live in a world
where the devil is trying to destroy people's
lives, but Jesus came.so that we can trust in him
to give us his abundant life. Jesus speaks of
himself as. the only hope. He is the ony hope
for the lost world we live in, the only hoe for
our families, our friends, our health, job situa-
tions, school problems, finances, stress, worry,
fear, the only hope for our churches, ard the
only hope for our lives. He is the hope for every
problem. Sometimes we get tired, or discour-
aged, but God promises us in Isaiah 40:31:
"those who hope in the Lord will renew their
strength. They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary, they will
walk and not faint." He will always be our help
and our hope.
You may say Pam, I know that God promises
us that He will renew our strength and that we
can hope in him; but what about me, I worry so
much about the future that I just can't seem to
find any peace. Where is my hope? God
promises us that he is there, He is always with
you, and He will be there in your future. You
can find that promise in Isaiah 41:13: "For I am
the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your
right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will
help you." You see, God promises us that He
will be there, that He will hold our hand, and
that we do not need to be afraid! We live in a
world full of troubles, but we need to put our
hope in God, and become a real witness to oth-
ers by proclaiming His hope while there is still
time.
Many of the people you know need to hear
about the hope of salvation that is in Christ Je-
sus. They may be looking to you for hope to-
day. When they look at your life, will they see
Jesus, the only hope, or will they only see your
troubles, worries and fears? Let's look in our
Bibles at Romans 5:1-5: "Therefore, since we
have been justified through faith, we have
peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom we have gained access by faith
into this grace in which we now stand. And we
rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only
so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because
we know that suffering produces perseverance;
perseverance, character; and character, hope.
And hope does not disappoint us; because God
has poured out His love into our hearts by the
Holy Spirit, whom He has given us." Some-
times the suffering or trials that we are going
through may be for our good; we may be learn-
ing how to persevere, or be building our char-
acter, which will give us more hope! Some-

times we as individuals, or even as a church,
will go through trials when we may wonder
what is going on and wonder if all hope is gone.
That is when we must remember to stand on
the word of God; God's promises are true and
they never change! There is a very exciting de-
scription to illustrate this in 1 Peter 1:3-7:
"Praise be to God and the father of our Lord Je- H
sus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us
new birth into a living hope through the resur-
rection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into
an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or
fade-kept in heaven for you, who through faith
are shielded by God's power until the coming
of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in
the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, though
now for a little while you may have had to suf-
fer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come
so that your faith - of greater worth than gold,
which perishes even though refined by fire-
may be proved genuine and may result in
praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is re-
vealed." Even if you have trials, worries, or
problems, God will shield you with His power,
and He will use them to make your faith j I
stronger. He has not forgotten you; He has not
taken away your hope. Instead, He is your
hope.
In dosing, I would like to share with you a
story about John Newton, the great hymn I
writer. John Newton wrote the song "Amazing
Grace." Many people today have heard the
popular myth about how and when he wrote
this great hymn. Many people believe it was
written right after he was saved on a wave of
emotions, but in reading his biography you will
find that he was a man who really knew God "
and studied His word. He was a man who was
writing the song the way he felt that God saw
him ard all people. He wanted to convey in
song that God's grace would help everyone
who trusts in God to be able to persevere
through all trials in their lives, and to show that
God's grace really gives the only real hope for
anyone. John Newton felt his own life was
nothing, but that serving Christ with his life
was everything. Yes, John Newton had the
hope that is available to all of us, the hope that
comes from serving Jesus Christ. Let us always
remember the words to this great hymn, as it
will help us on those days when we feel we
don't have any hope, or when we feel every-
thing is hopeless. Sing it, hum it, say it, think
and remember his grace is amazing and His
hope is always there!
"Amazing grace-how sweet the sound, that
saved a wretch like me! I once was lost but now
am found, was blind but now I see.
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and
grace my fears relieved; how precious did that
grace appear the hour I first believed.
The Lord has promised good to me, His word
my hope secures; He will my shield and portion
be, as long as life endures.
"Through many dangers, toils and snares,, I
have already come; 'tis grace hath brought me
safe thus far, and grace will lead me home."
"When we've been there ten thousand years,
bright shining as the sun, we've no less days to
sing God's praise than when we'd first begun."
Song written by John Newton

AND THE GOSPEL MUST -E .-UBLISHED AMONG ALL NATIONS - MARK 13:10


Suwannee Valley


SBy Aunt Pam
Hope for kids! Wow!
That does sound like
something important,
don't you think so? But
what does it mean?
Well, it means that all
kids, no matter who
they are, where they
live, how old they are, or
what the look like, all
kids have HOPE! Have
you ever gone to church
and not understood
what was being
preached? Do you some-
times feel like you can't
find any answers to your
questions? On days
when everything seems
to go wrong, maybe you
are feeling sick, or some-
one in your family is
sick, or maybe you are
having a hard time in
school. Maybe you are
just really tired of trying
so hard, or just feel sad.
Whatever problem you
have, whatever prob-
lems your family might
have, cheer up! God
promises you hope!
God has promised to
help you whatever the
problem is. God wants
kids to understand that
He loves them and He
will help them just like
He will help adults.
God has answers to
ALL of your questions
in His Bible. If you look
in the Bible, you will
find what God says
about hope. If you need
help finding the verse,
ask your mom or dad, or
someone older than you,
I am sure they will be
glad to help you. The
verse I am talking about
is Isaiah 40:31 "but those
who hope in the Lord
will renew their
strength. They will soar
on wings like eagles;


they will run and not
grow weary, they will
walk and not faint."
You see God has
promised can have hope
in the Lord, and He will
help us, even if we are
tired, worried or sad.
Sometimes I have kids
ask me how to know if
things are going to work
out okay and how to not
worry about things in
their future. I tell them
God already knows their
future, and they need to
trust in him. The Bible
has a wonderful answer
from God. You can find
that answer in your
Bible in Isaiah 41:13 "For
I am the Lord, your God,
Who takes hold of your
right hand and says to
you, Do not fear; I will
help you." You see, God
promises us He will be
there, He will hold our
hand, and we do not
need be afraid!
When you live ,for Jer
sus. He will alwaysigive
you hope, He will never
leave you helpless, and
you never need to feel
like anything is hope-
less. Kids who trust in
God have lots of hope!
So next time you or
someone in your family
is worried or afraid, or
things seem to be going
wrong, or you feel sad or
sick, remember Jesus is
your hope. Talk to Him,
tell Him you want His
help, and He will fill you
with His peace, His hap-
piness, and His hope. I
pray you will be filled
with God's hope!.
Hey Kids! You can e-
mail Aunt Pam with
questions or ideas for

"Your attitude should be the same as that
of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something
to be grasped, but made Himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a servant, being made
in human likeness. And being found in
appearance as a man, He humbled Himself
and became obedient to death-
even death on a cross! "

Dove Awards' Diversity Showcased by Other Multiple Winners Casting Crowns, Jeremy Camp, Nicole C. Mullen and Israel & New Breed


NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
April 13, 2005 - San
Diego alt rockers and
mainstream break-
through band Switch-
foot and southern
gospel's Kentucky-
bred The Crabb Family
painted a striking pic-
ture of gospel music's
diversity and youth as
the two groups
emerged among the
most honored artists at
the 36th Annual GMA
Music Awards, pre-
sented tonight at the
Grand Ole Opry House
in Nashville. Joining
them in receiving mul-
tiple Dove Awards
were pop band Casting
Crowns, gospel wor-
ship artist Israel &
New Breed and
singer/songwriters Je-
remy Camp and Nicole
C. Mullen.
"I love the fact that
Switchfoot and The
Crabb Family share top
Dove Award honors
this year because it
powerfully reveals the
variety of cultural ex-
pressions of the Gospel
through music," said
John W. Styll, presi-
dent of the Gospel Mu-
sic Association (GMA)
and executive produc-
er of the 36th Annual
GMA Music Awards.
"These two groups
could rot be more dif-
ferent culturally and
musically and yet, the
message of the Gospel
is evident in both of
them. Casting Crowns,
Jeremy Camp, Nicole
C. Mullen and Israel &
New Breed share with


Switchfoot and The
Crabb Family the
unique ability to create
music that reaches
across cultural, reli-
gious and generational
divides to encourage
the gospel music faith-
ful and in-
spire a new-
er genera-
tion of mu-
sic fans."
These six
artists were F(
among the
nearly 40
different Song
artists re-
ceiving
Dove stat-
uettes on gospel mu-
sic's' biggest night of
the year. Thanks to Mel
Gibson's blockbuster
"The Passion of the
Christ" film, some un-
expected names are
among this year's Dove
Award recipients. Lau-
ryn Hill, Brad Paisley,
Sara Evans, Scott Stapp
and MxPx represent
the eclectic mix of rock,
pop, gospel and coun-
try artists receiving
Dove Awards for Spe-
cial Event Album of the
Year for The Passion of
the Christ: Songs., The
Passion of the Christ
Original Motion Pic-
ture Soundtrack was
named Instrumental

ing Gibson a Dove
Award for his produc-
tion on the John Deb-
ney-composed project.
Switchfoot earned a
total of four Dove
Awards along with one

Cinco de Mayo
Continued From Page 2C

To assemble the Aztec Platter, transfer the quinoa-corn salad onto a
large platter and spread evenly to within an inch or so from the edge.
Pushing the salad outward from the center, make a well in the center
of the platter, about 5-inches in diameter. Mound the bean salad into
the well, and sprinkle it with a handful of pumpkin seeds. Arrange olives
and pepper strips around the edge of the platter.

About Quinoa
Probably the most nutritious grain available, quinoa is considered a
complete protein as it supplies all eight essential amino acids as well
as other essential nutrients.
Quinoa is also lower in carbohydrates than most other grains.
The small bead-like grains cook in half the time of regular rice. The
grains expand to 4 times their original volume when cooked. Use
quinoa as a more nutritious alternative to rice or couscous or add to
soups, side dishes, main dishes, casseroles or anywhere else you'd
use grains like rice or couscous.
You can easily find quinoa in most any health food store and most
supermarkets.

Spoon an equal amount of the tomato salsa into 6 margarita or wine
glasses.
Surround with chilled shrimp, dividing evenly.


Mexican Style Slaw
This spicy slaw is a perfect picnic food (it uses no mayonnaise) and
a unique change to traditional cole slaws. Use more or less jalapeno,
depending on how spicy you like your foods..This slaw gets better if it
has a chance to sit for a few hours before serving, and it's even good
the next day.
Ingredients
1/2 head green cabbage, shredded
1/2 medium jicama, shredded
1 large carrot, shredded
3 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
1-2 minced, seeded jalapenios
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
Dressing
Ingredients
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste
Directions
Combine all salad ingredients and mix well.
Combine all dressing ingredients and toss well with salad ingredi-
ents. Refrigerate until ready to serve.


Low Carb Fajitas
Serves 8.
This recipe works equally well for flank steak, chicken or even
shrimp.
Traditional fajitas are served, of course, with tortillas. In order to
Make this a low carbohydrate recipe, use leaves of butter lettuce or Ro-
maine (ask your produce manager) to wrap up the Fajita fillings. Still
delicious!
Ingredients
3 pounds skirt or flank steak
OR
3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
OR
3 pounds shrimp, cleaned
2 large yellow onions
2 green bell peppers
1-2 red bell peppers
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cups grated cheese
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
2 cups sour cream (optional)
1-2 head butter lettuce
Marinade
1 cup lime juice
1 tablespoon pepper
2 tablespoons garlic, minced

Pico de Gallo
Ingredients
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
Directions
Combine marinade ingredients in a large dish. Combine all marinade
ingredients and add meat and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4
hours, preferably overnight for steak or chicken.
To prepare the pico de gallo, simply combine all of the ingredients in
a small serving bowl.
Slice the onions into 1/4-inch slices, and cut each slice into a semi-
circle, chop some cilantro and set aside.
Grill the meat until it is cooked slightly less than the way you like it.
You can also grill the onions and peppers, or if it is easier, saute
them in the oil until they are soft, using a large frying pan.
After removing the meat from the grill, slice it into strips that are cut
across the grain. The strips should be 3-4 inches long and 1/4 inch
thick.
Combine meat with the onions and peppers.
Place all ingredients on the table.

Each person makes their own fajita by taking a lettuce leaf and
spooning some of the meat onto it, then adding their choice of each of
the other ingredients in whatever combination they like.

Cilantro Chicken
Ingredients
1 small onion, cut in large chunks
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 can (28 ounces) whole tomatoes
1 can (4 ounces) whole green chilies, cut into 1" strips
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup flour.
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
Directions
SSaut6 onions and garlic in 1 tablespoon olive oil until softened, about
4-5 minutes. Add tomatoes, green chilies and cilantro.
Bring to a boil then lower heat and simmer for about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix together flour, salt and pepper and place in a plastic food bag.
Shake chicken breasts with the flour mixture to lightly coat.
Saut6 chicken in remaining olive oil until golden brown on both sides,
about 5-6 minutes per side.
Transfer chicken to a baking dish, cover with sauce and bake for
about 45 minutes. Serve over rice.
(Recipe was created by Mark Shelton, chef at Tucson, Arizona's
Tanque Verde Guest Ranch'.)

Abuelita's Flan
(Spanish Egg Custard)
Since you only use egg yolks for it, you can save the egg whites and
make angel food cake. Flan is really good after it's about 4 or 5 days
old as it gives a chance for the flavors to really blend.
Serves 12
Ingredients
12 large egg yolks
1 quart (4 cups) of milk
1 stick of cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 to 1/2 cup Cream Sherry, you may substitute Southern Comfort
for the sherry
Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Pour one quart of milk in heavy saucepan with one stick of cinna-
mon. Heat at medium to medium high and remove from the burner just
as a skin forms across the top.
While milk is heating, melt and caramelize 1/2 cup of the sugar in a
non-stick skillet over medium heat.
Carefully spoon the very hot sugar into 12 individual custard cups or
ramekins. Don't worry about coating the bottom evenly, it will automat-
ically do that while the custard cooks.
In a large bowl, whisk the egg yolk with the other 1/2 cup of the sug-
ar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the sherry. Slowly (to avoid scrambling the
eggs) pour the cooled milk into the egg mixture, stirring constantly.
Pour the custard mixture into the 12 custard cups and place the cups
into a large roasting pan. Add enough water into the pan until it comes
about half way up the cups. Bake for about'40-45 minutes. The custard
will appear set when'done.
(Recipe from Carlotta Castillo Moulder's grandmother, Alicia Este-
ban Castillo who was born in Madrid, Spain, n 1905.)

Dear Classified Guys,
I've always been last. It's been
the story of my life. I've always
been tall for my age so when
they lined us up in school, I was
last in the line. In gym class I
had no coordination so I was the
last one picked. Now that I'm
grown up, it's no different. I call
to get concert tickets and
they're all sold out...even when I
know the band! The same is
true when I call a classi-
fied ad for something I
want. It's always gone --' .
or someone else is
already planning to come
look. How does a guy like .-
me get to the front of the
line?
* * *
Carry: I'm only guessing from your
cormnents that your last name started
with a "Z". That would put you at the
back of the class for sure.
Cash: Although when it comes to
the classified, "The early bird catches
the worm." In order to get the best
deals, you need to be out front. And
despite what you might be thinking, it
is not that difficult to do.
Carry: If the items are already gone
by the time you respond to the ad, then
you're not responding early enough.

@2005 The Classified Guys@


Consider buying a subscription to your
newspaper and read it first thing in the
morning.
Cash: And turn to the classified sec-
tion first. If you see something of inter-
est, call right away. Don't wait. If the
seller's not home, leave a message with
a phone number where you can be
reached during the day and evening. A
seller does not want to return your call,
only to get your voice mail.
Carry: When they call you back,
you need to be willing to visit at the
seller's first opportunity, even if it
means getting up early before work or
visiting during your dinner hour. The
more flexible you are, the better your


chances.
Cash: If you leave a message and
the seller doesn't return your call, call
them again. Sometimes it's just in the
timing. If you're the first to call when
they walk through the door and you
offer to show up right away, the seller
may not even return the messages on
their answer machine.
Carry: Also, a quick sale is always a
motivating factor. Be sure to let the
seller know that you can come look
right away and you're willing to take
the item home with you.
Cash: As for being first to get those
concert tickets, maybe you should con-
sider buying a CD instead.


Proverbs Returned
For those of you who are not early
risers and never subscribed to the
phrase, "The early bird catches the
worm", here are a few thoughts to make
you feel better about sleeping in:
"The early bird may catch the
worm, but the early worm gels
caught!"
"The early bird may catch the
worm, but it's the second mouse
that gets the cheese!"

Try, Try Again
In the world of classified shopping,
timing & persistency pays. When you
call an ad and no one answers, always
leave a message. However, consider
calling the seller again at a time you
would expect them to be home. The
best times are early mornings before
work or shortly after work around din-
nertime. If you still can't get ill touch
with the seller, at least you can be
assured that they will receive your
message.

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.


Right On Time
When I needed to sell my car, I did
like most people and placed an ad in
my newspaper. Since they charged
by the number of lines, I abbreviated
everything, skipped words and made
my ad as short as possible.
However when my ad came out, I
received a call at the crack of dawn
from a gentleman who wanted to
come look right away. Having just
crawled out of bed to answer the tele-
phone, I glanced at the clock and told
him that he was crazy to be calling so
early.
Rather confused he said, "Your ad
said to call between 5 and 6 o'clock.
"I know," I replied, "But I meant
PM."
(Thanks to Sander G.)
