Democrat Reporter
When Firefighter/EMT Adam McCook arrived at the scene
July 8, 2004, he thought it was just a car fire. "We were called
out for a car fire," McCook said. "We started a fire attack, and
a bystander came up and said there was someone inside."

"The car was fully in-
volved, then I heard there
was someone inside," Mc-
Cook's partner that night,
Firefighter/EMT David
Brickel, said of the car
fire. "I thought this would
just be a recovery, and
then he started talking."
Trey Townsend was se-
verely injured that night
when the truck he was dri-
ving hit a tree. Almost
everyone in Live Oak
knew of the accident and
its terrible results. Trey
and his family, mom
Shelly, dad Lee, sister
Kate and brother Amos,
are working together to fa-
cilitate Trey's long journey
down the road to recovery.


I'm hoping

to get back

on the farm,

My ultimate

goal is to be

able to run

and drive a

TREY TOWNSEND POPS A WHEELIE AS HE ROLLS ONTO THE ROAD TO RECOVERY: Trey was severely injured in a car fire
last July resulting in the loss of his legs. Since, he has fought a tough battle to win back the life many thought he would not
have. Trey is determined to run again with prosthetic legs. He and his dog, Snoopy, pop a wheelchair-wheelie for the camera.

County there are two chapters.
The newest, Fun Reds of Live
Oak, talked Mayor Sonny No-
bles into proclaiming May 9,
2005 as Red Hat Day.
The Red Hat Society started
when Sue Ellen Cooper im-
pulsively bought herself a
bright red fedora for no other
reason than it was cheap and
she liked it. Two years later
she read the poem "Warning,"
by Jenny Joseph.
It begins:
When I am an old woman, I
shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't
go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pen-
sion on brandy and summer
gloves
And satin sandals and say
we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pave-
ment when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in
shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the
public railings


And make up for the sobri-
ety in my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers
in the rain
And pick flowers in other
people's gardens
And learn to spit.
Cooper started the first Red
Hat Society chapter and since
it's spread all over the world.
The only thing Cooper asks of
her members is that they wear
purple dresses and red hats
when they meet to announce
their freedom and to celebrate
this new stage of life.
There are two basic pre-
cepts that all Red Hat Chap-
ters adhere to.
One: there are no rules be-
cause this is a generation of
women who lived by the
rules. And frankly, we're tired
of them.
Two: the Red Hat Society
has no official purpose, no re-
sponsibilities. Cooper said,
"We've all raised families and
volunteered until we're blue in
the face."

The accident: happened
when Katie Michelle Smith,
17, of 3181 US 90 east, Well-
born, was northbound on
Houston in the rain, the re-
port said. Katie Smith said
she met another car and the
lights of the oncoming car
caused a glare on her wind-
shield due to the rain. As the
car passed, Katie Smith said
she saw two people on bicy-
cles directly in front of her


and hit her brakes. The car
began to slide, and Katie
Smith's 1995 Jeep struck
Tyreese E. Smith, one of the
bicyclists, the report said.
The report said Katie
Smith \x as n'ot i'lt'ault 'inthe
accident., Howevei,' the bicy-
clist was at fault for not hav-
ing the proper equipment, the
report said.. The report said
both Tyreese E. Smith and a
companion were riding their
bikes at night and wearing
dark colored clothing at the
time of the accident. Tyreese
E. Smith's bicycle had reflec-
tors only on the pedals, and
there were no lights on the
bike, the report said.

adhere to those precepts. "We
have no agenda," said founder
of the Fun Reds Joan Blake.
"All we do is go to lunch."
The Fun Reds was formed
by Blake on May 9, 2004, and
since have lunched all over
Suwannee County into Hamil-
ton and Columbia County,
stopping at all the really great
luncheon locations.
Blake's title is Queen Bee
and the group is not accepting
new members at this time.
SSo, all you ladies who'd like
to be a Red Hat, bunch up and
form your own chapter. Then
you too can where a red hat
and purple dress and go out in
your slippers in the rain and
pick flowers in other people's
gardens.

came over and tried to get me
out," he recalled. "I couldn't
get my foot out. It got hotter
and hotter. I could feel my
blood boiling. It was a weird
feeling," Trey said as he spoke
of his experience.
Trey remembers thinking,
"God, this really hurts." He re-
members it was too hot for
anyone else to get close. He
remembers pulling himself
back into the truck so he could
die from smoke inhalation in-
stead of burning to death.
The young farmer and col-
lege student was burned in the
wreck from the top of his
chest to the bottoms of his
feet.
"We tried to pull him out by
hand, but his foot was caught.
We had to use extrication
equipment. It took 12-13 min-
utes to get him out," McCook
said. "We didn't think he was


going to make it. It was one of
the hardest scenes I have ever
been to. I've known him all
my life. We go to the same
church."
But Trey did make it. "I re-
member Adam's voice. I re-
member being put on a
stretcher. I remember the
thump of being loaded into the
helicopter."
Trey also remembers the
doctor saying, "Son, we're go-
ing to have to take your legs
off. If we don't, you're going
to die."
"Do what you got to do,"
was Trey's answer.
Trey's legs were amputated
approximately eight inches
below the joint of his thigh.
He has extensive burn scars
over his chest and back and a
few on his arms. But he's
alive, and he's glad. His atti-
tude is slightly irreverent and
cheerful. He has a great sense
of humor and an optimistic


History


outlook for the future.
"I've been getting better,"
Trey said. "I pretty much go
anywhere I want to."
Trey's parents, Lee and
Shelly, spent 16 nights sleep-
ing in the Intensive Care wait-
ing room after Trey was first
injured. They had to make the
tough decision to have their
son's legs amputated. At the
time, they didn't know the
doctor had spoken to Trey and
received his permission.
After the surgery, Trey was
in a drug-induced coma for six
weeks. When he woke up he
was addicted to narcotics.
"Part of my recovery was I
was physically addicted to
pain medicine," Trey said. I
had a lot of trouble coming off
the medicine. I won't take nar-
cotics anymore."
When Trey woke up for the
first time, his friends brought
him the newspaper with the
story of his wreck.
Trey is learning to walk
again. He said they start dou-
ble-leg amputees on short legs
called stubbies. Gradually, the


legs are lengthened. Trey said
he has reached a height of
5'4". He plans to get legs long
enough to send him back to his
full height of 6'2".
Trey is driving as well. His
truck has been fitted with
equipment that allows him to
drive. He is free to go any-
where he wants. He also trav-
els around the family farm on
an ATV, and he swims.
"I had to learn to swim
again in 15 minutes," Trey
said, "or drown. It's hard to
tread water."
"I'm hoping to get back on
the farm," Trey said about his
plans for the future. "My ulti-
mate goal is to be able to run
and drive a tractor."
Trey's recovery has been
long and difficult. He had
seizures, 10 gallons of blood
transfusions, a lot of pain,
more than most people will
ever endure, narcotics with-
drawal, over a dozen surgeries
within three months and more
in his future. He struggles with
phantom pain in his feet and
toes. But he's a scrapper, intel-


ligent and strong-willed. He
goes to therapy three times a
week.
"I really want to be fully in-
dependent of any kind of med-
icine," he said.
Trey attributes his recovery
to his friends and his mom.
"Sometimes I feel down. I
don't know what I would do
without my mom," Trey said.
"I don't think about it too
much. I've had to distract my-
self."
When Trey was injured in
that wreck, all of Suwannee
County prayed for him. His
mother said Trey was on
prayer lists all over the coun-
try. He received cards from
everywhere.
"I want to thank everyone
who's contributed and helped
my family," Trey said. "My
friends have really stuck with
me. And I want to send a spe-
cial thanks to my friend
Mikey."
Trey continues on his long
road to recovery. He's deter-
mined. "I'm not going to let
this hold me back at all," he


said.

OPINION


Medicaid Reform

is Doublespeak for

Medicaid Cuts
By Anne Swerlick
Florida is flush with billions of dollars of surplus rev-
enues. So why is the Governor (and the Legislature)
proposing to terminate Medicaid for 77,000 elderly and
disabled Floridians? These are not wealthy individuals-
they are poor, living on just $591 to $702 per month. Many
of their families are already serving as caregivers to keep
them at home. For some, cutting Medicaid will trigger a
nursing home placement. Ironically, this will be covered
by Medicaid.
Medicaid covers 2.2 million Floridians including seniors
and people with severe disabilities. These individuals are
too poor and in such bad health that private insurance is
not an option. Congress created the Medicaid program in
1965 after recognizing the moral value of providing cost-
effective health care coverage to these individuals.
Yet, 30 years later the program is under serious attack for
costing too much money. However, the facts show other-
wise. Medicaid is a great deal for Florida taxpayers. Near-
ly 60 cents of every dollar of Medicaid funds comes from
the federal government. Not only do these funds provide
life-saving health care services, they support local hospi-
tals and health clinics and generate substantial business ac-
tivity-175,000 jobs and $6.5 billion in wages.
Contrary to popular wisdom, Medicaid costs are not "out
of control." Notably, the July 2004 policy brief by the Win-
ter Park Health Foundation, "Florida's Medicaid Budget,
Why Are C.os .Going ip?.'" concludes tha Mtidicaid costs
have.been. growing, at a substantially slower rate than pri-
vate insurance premiums, despite the fact that Medicaid
covers an older and sicker population.
Cutting Medicaid will not reduce health care spending-
it will merely shift these costs to employers, insurers,
providers and local government. Uncompensated care
costs will increase and Florida's lost federal funding will
flow to other states.
Which brings us back to the original question: Why are
our leaders proposing to eliminate Medicaid benefits for
77,000 Floridians? Here is their stated reason: Because
these individuals are "dual eligibles," meaning they also
have Medicare coverage, and they will be eligible for the
new Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit effective
January 1, 2006. Therefore, they will no longer need their
Medicaid.
Yet, the state's own numbers demonstrate that this ratio-
nale is flawed. Budget projections from the Agency for
Health Care Administration show that the state is spending
nearly $40 million of Medicaid dollars (more than half
federal dollars) for services other than prescriptions. These
Medicaid "wrap around" services are not covered by
Medicare. They include home health, medical equipment,
transportation and dental services.
Patients with kidney disease will suffer a double wham-
my. They will lose coverage for transportation which many
dialysis patients need up to three times per week. They will
also loose coverage for nutritional supplements that are
currently covered by Medicaid, but will not be picked up
by the new Medicare drug benefit. Dialysis patients fre-
quently suffer from malnutrition that puts them at in-
creased risk of infection and hospitalization. Yet, spending
hundreds of dollars per month on nutritional supplements
is not an option when you have just $600 per month to live
on.
Governor Bush has proposed a Medicaid reform pilot
project with the goal of controlling Medicaid costs. Many
in the Legislature, particularly in the Senate, have ex-
pressed the need to move cautiously to avoid unintended
consequences. Yet, legislators are recklessly rushing for-
ward to balance the 2005-06 budget on the backs of these
77,000 "dual eligibles." Let's not fool ourselves. If this
budget cut is implemented these folks will be the first vic-
tims of "Medicaid reform.." In a year of a $5 billion plus
revenue surplus, such a cut is shameful.

COMMENTARY

Economics for the Citizen


WALTER WILLIAMS
�2005 Creators Syndicate


Part ten of a
In 10 short.articles, there's no
way to even scratch the surface
of economic knowledge. I'll sim-
ply end the series with a discus-
sion of a few popular sentiments
that have high emotional worth
but make little economic sense. I
use some of these sentiments as a
teaching device in my undergrad-
uate classes.
Here's one that has consider-
able popular appeal: "It's wrong


to profit from the misfortune of others." I ask my students
whether they'd support a law against doing so. But I cau-
tion them with some examples. An orthopedist profits
from your misfortune of having broken your leg skiing.
When there's news of a pending ice storm, I doubt whether
it saddens the hearts of those in the collision repair busi-
ness. I also tell my students that I profit from their misfor-
tune - their ignorance of economic theory.
Then, there's the claim that this or that price is unrea-
sonable. I used to have conversations about this claim with
Mrs. Williams early on in our 44-year marriage. She'd re-
turn from shopping complaining that stores were charging
unreasonable prices. Having aired her complaints, she'd
ask me to go out and unload a car trunk loaded with gro-
ceries and other items. Having completed the chore, I'd re-
sume our conversation, saying, "Honey, I thought you said
the prices were unreasonable. Are you an unreasonable
person? Only an unreasonable person would pay unrea-
sonable prices."
The long and short of it is that the conversation never
went over well, and we both ceased discussions of reason-
able or unreasonable prices. The point is that whatever
price a transaction is transacted at represents a meeting of
the mind of both buyer and seller. Both viewed themselves
as being better off than the next alternative - not making
the transaction. That's not to say that the seller wouldn't
have found a higher price more pleasing or the buyer
wouldn't have been pleased with a lower price.
How about your parents' admonition that "Whatever's


10-part series
worth doing is worth doing as well as possible"? That's
not a wise admonition. I tell my students, often to their
amazement, that it might not be worth it to try to get the
best grade possible in economics. Let's look at it. Say they
have biology, physics, English and economics classes.
They work their butts off in economics, earning an A, but
spending so much time studying economics takes time
away from other classes, and they wind up earning an F in
biology, a C in physics and a D in English. That makes for
a semester grade point average of 1.75. They'd be better
off, in terms of grade point average, if they spent less time
studying economics, maybe earning a C, and allocating
more time to biology and English and thereby earning a C
grade in all their subjects. They'd have a higher grade
point average (2.0) and wouldn't be on academic proba-
tion.
Another example: You ask your wife to have the house
as neat and clean as possible when you return from work.
You return, and the house is immaculate. You compliment
her, saying, "That's a great job, honey. What's for dinner,
and where are the kids?" She responds, "I don't know
where the kids are, and there's no dinner prepared, but the
house is immaculate." Just as getting the best economics
grade possible is non-optimal, so is doing the best job pos-
sible cleaning the house.
Then, there's "You can never be too safe." Yes, you can.
How many of us bother to inspect the hydraulic brake lines
in our cars before we start the engine and head off to
work? Doing so would be safer than simply assuming that
the lines were intact and driving off. After all, prior to
launching a space vehicle, the people at NASA make no
similar assumptions. They go through a countdown of all
systems, taking nothing for granted. Erring on the side of
over-caution is costly, and so is erring on the side of un-
der-caution, though for a given choice, one might be cost-
lier than the other.

volunteers
Volunteers are critical to the
success of many organiza-
tions. Volunteers at Hospice of
North Central Florida, part of
the Hospice of North Central
Florida network, give numer-
ous hours in order to help oth-
ers.
The HNCF network covers
16 counties and includes
Gainesville and Alachua
County. More than 20,000 vol-
unteer hours were spent work-
ing directly with patients and
their families.
"All of our hospice volun-
teers selflessly help patients,
their families and the commu-
nity. It is inspirational working
with such a committed, com-
passionate group of people,"
said Monica Monahan, man-
ager of volunteer services.
These dedicated individuals
were honored recently at the
annual Hospice of North Cen-
tral Florida Volunteer Appreci-
ation luncheon held in con-
junction with national Volun-
teer Appreciation Month, in
April. Certain volunteers were
recognized for their service
hours (approximately 50 plus
hours), their special contribu-
tion (not monetary) to the or-
ganization or a special service
performed for a patient or fam-
ily.
Special recognition went to
the following volunteers:
* Mary Wetherington, recip-
ient of the Alliance-Lake City
Chapter Award.
* Beverly Davis was the re-
cipient of The Fay Knight Vol-


honored

SUWANNEE HIGH SCHOOL PROM: Students from the ESE Department at SHS attend the Suwannee High School prom.


We would like to take this
opportunity to thank some
very generous and caring peo-
ple for an event that a group of
"special students" will never
forget. The event that we are
referring to is the Suwannee
High School prom. "Ren-
dezvous in Paris" was a magi-
cal event because of all the
hard work and imagination of
these individuals.
First, let me say thanks to
the parents of these "special
students" for allowing their
child to be a part of this fun
tradition and making sure
their child was dressed in their
evening best and on time.
A very special thank you to
the members of the Suwannee
River Woman's Club for pur-
chasing, preparing and serv-
ing our pre-prom dinner.
These special ladies are: Tara
Brock, Marsha Brown, Shan-
non Buzby, Tenille Cantella,
Karen Fraley, Tammy Mobley,
Tina Nobles, Megan Slemp,
Suzanne Tillman and Heather
Thompson. These ladies also
transformed one of the porta-
bles at the Suwannee-Hamil-
ton Technical Center to look
like a Parisian Caf6'. Please
forgive us if we have mis-
spelled anyone's name.
Thanks to Mrs. Wescott for
the use of this building.
Thanks also to Elverda Dun-
away for her part in decorat-
ing and lending an extra hand.
Among others who had a part
in this event are: Suzie's for


lending us the beautiful plants
used to decorate our special
cafe and David Napier of So-
lutions for donating his time
and talents on the beautiful
job he did on some of the
girls' hair. Thanks to all of
those who donated dresses

Lake City Medical Center


hosts Service Awards Banquet


SLake City Medical Center
Honored the dedication of 47
.employees March 29 during
tits annual Service Awards
'Banquet held at the Quality
iInn.
S"We just wanted to take
this opportunity to thank our
employees for their loyalty,
for their tireless efforts in
Promoting health in our com-
munity and for their dedica-
tion to making Lake City
,Medical Center the best med-
rical facility it can be," Direc-
-tor of Human Resources
-Scott Parton said.
11 The employees were
,'awarded for five, 10, 15 and
20 years of service, and all
combined the group of hard-
-working, loyal employees
have provided over 425 years
of service to HCA and/or
Lake City Medical Center.
Numerous employees were
awarded for perfect atten-
"dance in 2004.
"I like to classify this
'group of people as corporate
,knowledge," Parton said.
I"They've seen the good, and
they know the history. They
are the ones we can count on
'because of their consistency
'in their dedication to the hos-
pital."
Parton said maintaining
long-term, loyal employees
are important to Lake City
Medical Center. It is the
long-term employee who be-
comes a valuable resource
and asset in more than just
their medical know-how.
"As the medical needs of
the community change, these
people are known by the peo-
, ple in the community so
there's a relationship already
,built," Parton said. "They're
-Lthe friends, neighbors, hus-
8'bands,, wives, brothers, sis-
'[ters of the Lake City commu-
�-nity, and because of that
-j there's a sense of trust there."
-(, That sense of trust, is ex-
'jitremely important in the
medicall profession, Parton
pointed out. "Our employees
-,are our most valued re-
-osource," Parton said.
;~ It is that valuable, intangi-
;ible.resource that makes Lake
snCity Medical Center work to
rfireward and encourage
irnlongevity through good bene-
-ifit plans.
,sr "These are the people who
hi have grown up with the com-
,nrpany as the company has
rhlevolved," Parton, said. "It's
eiivery important to the compa-
'riny to retain employees be-
cBcause they know what works
oland what doesn't work, and
-ythey are able to look at things
r~from a different perspective."
-mr In addition to recognizing
ilthe longevity of employees,
-asake City Medical Center
Zailso recognized several em-
'iployees who took part in the
fllfitness incentive program.
D"'These six individuals used
ruour incentive program to lose
weightt or maintain their
i'weight and to promote health
svwithin the hospital and out in
s.the community," Parton said.
s' A recent letter from a pa-
lctient who spoke of the out-
,!compassion of the staff mem-
bers brought one more round
sof recognition during the
awardss banquet.
H "We get letters like that all
a'ithe time, but this one came in
rirecently and stood out, and
we felt those individuals
mentionedd in the letter de-
served to be honored," Parton
-'said.

Raymond James responds to fee-based brokerage account settlement with NASD; affirms fee-based business permanence


Raymond James Financial,
Inc. recently issued the follow-
ing statement regarding recent
settlement with the National
Association of Securities Deal-
ers regarding fee-based broker-
age accounts.
Raymond James is satisfied
to have resolved this matter
with the NASD. While we con-
tinue to believe that fee-based
accounts represent a sound way
of providing service to clients,


after three years of experience
with a fee-based brokerage al-
ternative it represents only two
percent of Raymond James
clients. We have decided that
these accounts are best re-char-
acterized as fee-based advisory
since this structure allows us to
provide advice to clients with-
out any question regarding the
nature of the advice. Accord-
ingly, we are recommending
that all clients with existing fee-


based brokerage accounts con-
sider transferring to fee-based
advisory accounts or commis-
sion-based accounts as appro-
priate, and we will only be pro-
viding advisory accounts in the
future for clients who prefer a
fee-based pricing alternative.
It's important to note that
Raymond James will no longer
offer fee-based brokerage ac-
counts but will continue to offer
fee-based advisory. We are not


exiting the fee-based business.
To the contrary, we expect to
maintain a leadership position
in innovative asset manage-
ment alternatives.
Raymond James Financial
(NYSE-RJF) is a Florida-based
diversified holding company
providing financial services to
individuals, corporations and
municipalities through its sub-
sidiary companies. Its three
wholly owned broker/dealers,


Raymond James & Associates,
Raymond James Financial Ser-
vices and Raymond James Ltd.
have more than 5,000 financial
advisors serving 1.3 million ac-
counts in 2,100 locations
throughout the United States,
Canada and overseas. In addi-
tion, total client assets are cur-
rently over $136 billion, of
which more than $25 billion are
managed by the finn's asset
management subsidiaries.

Suwannee softball district runner-up Johi
Suwannee softball faced Madison W C
on Wednesday, April 27 in a do-or -
die situation. They had to win to ad-
vance to the championship round of . A
the district championships. A loss A th l
would send them home, season
over. The Lady Dogs were up to the
challenge. They defeated Madison
in a nail-biter of a game 5-4.
SHS Lady Dog softball was the
number-two seed going into district
play. Because of their seeding, the
Lady Dogs received a bye for the
first round of district play. That
meant they only. had to play two _..~'� ,
games to advance instead of three. .
Lea Schenck was the starting
pitcher for Suwannee. Schenck :
pitched the entire game giving up
four hits, walking one and striking
out seven.
Suwannee had defeated Madison
during the regular season, 11-1 and
6-3. But the team knew they could-
n't take Madison lightly. And they
were right. During the first inning, , : ,
Madison jumped on the board with .... .....
two runs. Suwannee answered back
with only one run.
In the second inning both teams . - . ,
went scoreless. Schenck settled in'
and Madison went three up, three
down. For Suwannee, Jenna Jordan
started the inning with a single, - JOHN JANOUSE
Katie Smith was hit by a pitch, named WCJB TV
Cortney Ross was walked but with Astengo at the S
bases loaded, Suwannee could not .- .. . ...
bring them in to score.

the entire game, but with one out in the bottom of
the seventh host team. Florida High, managed to
-score the t mng run on a NMdison error.
Suwannee has stuttered against Florida High
this season, losing once-on Forida High-s- turf
and winning once in the Dog House. T-he F!rida
High fans make \\inning in Tallahassee tough.
But whether or not the Dogs defeat Florida High,
they are still in the regional play-off. Look for

Swing" and, as you suggested, I calculated my
strength and weakness profile. I was surprised to
find out that I lost many of my shots from the 55-
to-65-yard range. I was surprised because I
thought my full gap wedge (53 degrees), which I
used from that distance, was one of my best
shots. I want to get better from this distance. Do
you have any suggestions? -

you use a swing with fewer
moving parts for more accura-
cy Here is what to do:
* Grip the club 1 inch down
the handle (shorten the club
length).
* Narrow your stance.
* Start with more weight an-
chored on your front foot.
* Swing with minimal weight
transfer, but take care to turn
your shoulders behind the ball.
* Finish with almost all your
weight on your front foot and
your belly button facing the tar-


get.
* This stroke requires an early "wrist set" -
by the time your hands are hip high on the back-
swing, the club head should be directly above
your hands.
The key is to start, swing and finish on your
left foot. Fewer moving parts equal more consis-
tency You can use this finesse swing to create
special shots with all your irons (5 through the
wedges).
Once you have the technique, experiment with
various clubs to learn the different trajectories
and flight/roll ratios. Mastering this shot will
surely lower your handicap.


THE GOLF DOCTOR
The truth about lies
The lie angle of a club is measured by a line
from the center line of the shaft to the ground
when the club is soled correctly.
There are two aspects to lie angle: One is the
lie angle that's created as the club sits unmoving
on the ground. The other is the effective lie an-
gle, which chians asyou swing because the :
shaft bows downward, causing the toe of the
club to get closer to the ground. This is the dy-
namic aspect of lie and it is the reason why
irons are fit with the toe slightly up in the air.
The club head is called "flat'" when the toe of
the club moves downward toward the ground;
when it moves toward the sky, it's called "up-
right." When you physically add length to your
club shaft, the club head gets more upright (toe
up) as you stand farther away from the ball. As
you shorten the club, you stand over the ball
more and the toe flattens.
The rule of thumb is that adding half an inch
of length makes the club more upright by about
1 degree. But you can also influence the lie of
your clubs by how far you stand from the ball
without altering the length of the shaft.
Simply standing farther away from the ball
raises the toe in the air, so you will need to use
irons with flatter lie angles. When the toe of the
club is too far off the ground, the heel of the
club will have a tendency to get "caught" by the
grass at impact. This will send the ball off to the
left. And even if the heel does not get caught,
the toe up at impact causes a slight pull left.
On the other hand, standing close to the ball
forces the toe into the ground, so you'll need a
more upright lie or the ball will leak to the right
of the target even with a good swing.
The truth about lies is that because your
stance and the lie of your clubs are intimately
related, don't change one without changing the
other. Visit your PGA teaching pro and make
sure that the distance you stand from the ball is
correct, then have your pro check your lies.

COMMENTARY


JAY JANNER / Cox News Service
Tom Jenkins was one of about 50 players who chose to ride carts last week at The Hills
Country Club. Heat and humidity caused the tour to temporarily lift the ban on carts.




Senior golfers taking




up sides on cart path


By KIRK BOHLS
Cox News Service

Austin, Texas
he heat index x as a s\ up last
Friday

So was the blood press.,r- of
some of th- golfers.
More than half of the ;i 7, llei 5
in the FedEx Kinko's C l.l. ,: ,ar Th'-
Hills Country Club got their v. heel.
back for the first time all \ear. but
only because the rising temperia-
tures, stifling humidity rand the he Ia
under Ed Fiori's collar were high
enough to temporarily lift the sea-
son-long ban.
After players had a ticket to ride
for 24 years, golf carts were banned
on the Champions Tour in this sil-
ver anniversary season for these
golden oldies of golf.
And that has gone over about as
well as you'd expect with a group of
wheezers with arthritis and back
problems and artificial hips.
"They're trying to run the older
guys off," charged Fiori, who rode
in a cart during Friday's first
round. "About 11 of 'em have retired
since they pulled the carts. Guys
like Chi Chi Rodriguez and Miller
Barber. They can play and they
want to play, but physically .they
can't do it. I don't think much of
the rule, but that's my opinion."
Some would say1the olderguys
are running themselves off or are
just aging, although it's impossible
to substantiate Fiori's claims. Wel-
come to Barry Bonds' world. Except
for Roger Clemens, few athletes can
play a sport forever.
Still, the issue has created
volatile camps in both corners and
led to 19th-hole acrimony
"I liked the cart rules the way
they were," said Bruce Lietzke, an
avowed walker who'd like to see the
Rodriguezes and Barbers stick
around. "I haven't seen any heated
arguments, but it's divided the play-
ers some."
That's not likely to change. Poten-
tial litigation has been mentioned.
According to recent surveys, up to
80 percent of the players on the
plus-50 tour favor the use of carts.
About 50 in the 78-player field rode
at this weekend's event.
"I could come up with a survey of
my own that says they don't,"
groused Hale Irwin from the anti-
cart camp.
The Champions Tour, of course,


Pete Oakley and his caddy
also took advantage of the
usage of carts last week at
the FedEx Kinko's Classic.


has commissioned yet another sur-
vey, one that will exhaustively inter-
view golfers, sponsors, fans, doc-
tors, probably even the BCS com-
missioners.
No one is exactly clear on the ra-
tionale behind the ban, whether it
was done for aesthetic or competi-
tive reasons or both? Did the Tour
kick the tires off the course to pro-
duce a cleaner look and project a
healthier image or did it do it to
kick the over-the-hill golfers off the
, course altogether?
Don't tell the sponsors these are
' meaningless exhibitions. Not with
$51 million in purses and more than
20 different winners for 14 straight
seasons.
Trouble is many fans don't care if
they see carts. They just want to see
Lee Trevino. But many in the field
want to see no-advantage competi-
tion.
"The right thing is to get rid of
the carts,"Joe Inman said. "At one
point, it's time to move off the stage
and let somebody else on, but
there's got to be a balance. In the
long run, if you want to live to be
100, you got to keep walking."
Chi Chi's not already 100?
But how in the name of Casey
Martin can any senior golfer in
good conscience give his blessing to
these motorized accessories, what
with all the howls over that disabled
golfer's lawsuit seeking the right to
use a cart?
Without question, walking is a
crucial part of the game. It could be
the one thing that gives golfers any
claim at all to being a real athlete.


Besides, no one has yet written a
book titled, "A Go:.d Cart Ride
Spoiled "
No less a golf authority than
Jack Nicklaus vehemently opposed
Martin or any other handicapped
goulfh from hitching a ride. To play
18, he and others cried. you must
walk 18. It's hard to have it both
ways
Even Nicklausi, knows he is no
longer competitive and in April an-
nounced his retirement from the
NMasters Arnold Palmer, too, has
stopped playing at Augusta, and it
didn't take a letter from the green
jackets for him to step back.
As hot as it was, though, the
Tour acted on the side of safety and
allowed carts. Sure, there's still a
14-club maximum, and the Tour
may have to start looking into a 14-
shirt maximum if the cart ban con-
tinues.
Some don't care at all.
Craig Stadler said he couldn't
care less. Dana Quigley called the
relaxation of the rule "a stupid
change." Wayne Levi prefers walk-
ing and said there are "too many
overweight people in the world."
Larry Nelson, last year's Kinko's
champion, remains up in the air .
but thinks walking would increase
viewership. Nothing like checking
out Morris Hatalsky's backside to
boost ratings.
Asked if he favored carts or
walks, tour rookie Mark Johnson
contemplated it and said, "I'm in fa-
vor of my being out here."
Good answer. And this is a guy
who drove a beer truck out of
Barstow, Calif., for 18 years, and he
doesn't mind walking.
Mike McCullough made his own
statement when he rolled up his
green slacks high above his bare
calves, knickers-style, for some ven-
tilation. And he's from Scottsdale,
Ariz.
"I have the legs for it," he said.
"But we're not allowed to wear
shorts."
Shorts? Careful, Mike. Carts are
one thing. But if the tour wants to
be punitive, it could order you guys
into corduroy trousers.
Oh, and if the tour really wanted
to get serious, it would take away
the golfers' smokes.
"They haven't done anything
about that," Floridian Don Reese
said, puffing away on his cart ride
to the putting green. "That's when
we go to court."

Schenck gave up only one
hit in the third inning, but de-
fensive mistakes allowed two
runs to score putting Madison
up 4-1. Steph Starling led off
the inning for Suwannee. She
hit a single but no one else
was able to get a hit that in-
ning so Suwannee was still
down 1-4 at the end of three
innings.
Schenck held Madison
scoreless through the seventh
inning. The Lady Dog hun-
kered down and did a great
job of not allowing Madison
to add to their score.

In the fifth inning Deanne
Wainwright led off with a
base hit and advanced to sec-
ond from an overthrow. Star-
ling hit a ball to the Madison
third baseman, who over-
threw to first, allowing Wain-
wright to score. Starling
scored as well, making it 3-4
after five innings.
Jordan led off the sixth in-
ning with a big double and
scored tying Madison at 4-4
going into the seventh.
Once again it was Wain-
wright with a lead-off single.
Al Cash hit a triple and
Deanne scored the winning
run.


Suwannee won 5-4, ad-
vancing to the championship
game and clinching a spot in
the regional championships.
Suwannee now had to face
Wakulla, the number-one
seed in the district on Friday,
April 29.
It was a tight game. The
Lady Dogs discovered they
could rattle Wakulla's star
pitcher, Lovestrand. Loves-
trand was not happy with the
seven hits she gave up.
Lovestrand also walked sev-
en and hit two batters.
Katie Smith pitched 5.1 in-
nings for the Lady Dogs giv-
ing up two hits, walking five


and striking out seven. Smith
struggled in the sixth and was
relieved by Lea Schenck who
got the last two outs of the
game.
Al Cash led off with a sin-
gle in the first inning, but was
left on.
Wakulla scored one run,
putting them in the lead with
the home advantage.
In the second, Lea Schenck
singled scored Suwannee's
first run. Suwannee had three
more baserunners on base
when George Foster and
Cortney Ross both singled
and Katie Smith walked. But
all were left on base when the

Keaton Beach
Trout are really liking the warmer weather
and trying to respond to the plugs in 3.5 to 4 ft.
of water.
My charter, Craig Clark of Ocala and his
buddy Chuck Hudson of Leesburg had trout
and four Spanish fishing with jerkbaits from
3.5-4.5 and about a third of the keepers com-
ing in on live pinfish fished under Cajun Thun-
ders in 4-5 feet of water. If the W-I-N-D
would blow they would hit, if not... no.
The reds were happy with the southwest w-
i-n-d last week but hating the northeast of this
week. NE winds blow the water off the hill and
the reds sull up or go back in the creeks.
Wednesday, I had Monty Lewis of
Thomasville, Ga. and Bill Torrey of
Brunswick, Ga. and we managed 13 trout, two
blues, a Spanish and an nice seven-pound red
for Bill. All our fish were caught on live pin-
fish under Cajuns. Monty had a trout just over
four pounds!
Thursday, I took out Ed Lawrence of Destin
with Jerry Thomas of Inverness, who caught
their limit of trout and one red with live pinfish
under Cajun Thunders.
Friday, I had John Saevo, of Santa Rosa
Beach and Tom Matysik of Inverness out and
we had our limit of trout which weighed 24
pounds and three reds. We caught our reds on
the new Thunder-Spin spinnerbaits from Ca-
jun Thunder maker Bill Hall. We used Space
Guppy and red/gold shiner color Assassin sea
shads on our Thunder-Spins.
I was cleaning my fish last Thursday when
a young man next to me (sorry I didn't get his
name) had four flounder. I asked him, "What
did you get your flounder on?"
He answered, "On those Thunder-Spins you
wrote about!"
Good deal! He was using the red/gold pat-
tern in less than three feet of water.
Friday, I had an 11-inch flounder I had to re-
lease on red/gold Thunder-Spin also ...
Mark and Sonja Sedberry had their limit of
trout last week using Assassin's Electric chick-
en under a Cajun Thunder.
Curt and Jayne Pylant of Sycamore, Ga. had
nine trout Thursday, last using live shrimp and
pinfish under a Cajun Thunder in five feet of
water.
Bob and Debbie Edwards of Live Oak
caught their limit of trout (as usual) on Live
pinfish under a Cajun Thunder.
Danny Lastinger and Bill Barnett of Perry
with Robbie Lastinger ofTallahassee had their
limit Friday fishing three hours with Candy
Corn Sea shads, live pinfish, and live shrimp
under Cajun Thunders from 4-5 feet of water.
TGIF charters took Rev. Charlie Walker of
Mayo out Thursday and Friday and limited out
,both days in, 3-4 ft. of water using Berkley
"Gulp" 400 X shrimp
Bill Mobley with Mitzi and Joe Phillips on
board had 15 trout and six Spanish Friday from
four feet of water using live shrimp and candy

MILITARY NEWS


Local sailor serves aboard Civilian Redgie 0. Remmer


Navy's newest destroyer


Matt Grills and
Christopher Okula
Special to the Democrat
When skills great and small
are called together in the spirit of
unity and purpose, truly awe-
some feats are
accomplished. Today, the world
marvels at Egypt's pyramids and
their mysterious precision. The
world of tomorrow, however,
may find U.S. Navy ships like
the newly commissioned USS
Nitze (DDG 94) equally amaz-
ing.
The destroyer is home to Petty
Officer 3rd Class James Davis,
son of McAlpin resident Sandra
Snow.
"It brings me a great sense of
pride to be a part of the first crew -'
on board USS Nitze. It's very re-
warding to see everything come
together," said Davis, a fire con-
trolman. PLAN
Davis and his more than 300 NITZI
shipmates have been preparing serve
for the busy years ahead of the sharir
Navy's latest high-tech destroyer Naval
ever since the fleet took posses-
sion of the vessel in December
2004. Nitze, like all Navy ships, required
months of attentively detailed work and
testing before the commissioning ceremo-
ny held March 5 on Norfolk Naval Sta-
tion.
"As one of the Navy's most advanced
and powerful ships, USS Nitze is outfit-
ted with the next generation in combat-
weapons systems. Capable of firing sur-
face-to-air missiles and Tomahawk cruise


K OWNER ON THE NEWLY COMMISSIONED USS
E (DDG 94): Petty Officer 3rd Class James Davis
s as one of the first Sailors to crew the USS Nitze
ng with his fellow crewmembers the time-honored
tradition of being plank owners. - Photo: Submitted


missiles from forward and aft vertical-
launching systems, USS Nitze also hous-
es port and starboard torpedo tubes and
.one five-inch gun.
At the heart of Nitze's many levels of
cutting edge technology is the unique ex-
perience of actually living aboard one of
the Navy's smaller vessels.
"I look forward to going on deploy-
ment and doing my job. I want to serve
the ship that protects my country," said
the 2002 graduate of Columbia High


School in Lake City.
USS Nitze holds a technologi-
cal edge over older destroyers in
its class as well. The new de-
stroyer sports a helicopter
hangar and a remote mine-hunt-
ing vehicle system. When de-
ployed, the 23-foot mine-hunt-
ing vehicle can detect, classify
and identify moored and bottom
mines in deep and shallow water.
Since one of the greatest threats
to today's naval battle group is
mines, this mine-hunting capa-
bility gives the Navy a distinct
advantage in hostile regions.
As the first Sailors to crew the
ship, Davis and his shipmates
have the distinguished honor of
being plank owners. This time-
honored naval tradition gives
each Sailor aboard the right to
call a piece of the vessel their
very own someday.
"When I first enlisted, I never
knew what it meant to be a plank
owner. Now, as a proud partici-
pant in this age-old tradition, it
will remain forever as a point of
pride in my naval career," he
said.


Just as Davis and his fellow
crewmembers share a familial bond as
plank owners, the nation's newest war-
ship is now an official part of the Navy
family. Through the dedicated effort of
hundreds of American sons and daugh-
ters, USS Nitze is realized in a time when
our nation needs her most.
"A new destroyer symbolizes the pow-
er and control we as a nation can have
over the sea. We're ready to protect our
country against all enemies."


Civilian Redgie D. Remmer, son of Amber L. Wallace of
Mayo recently enlisted in the United States Navy under the
Delayed Entry Program at Navy Recniiing Dilrnm, Jack-
sonville.
Remmer will report for active duty to undergo basic train-
ing at the Navy's Recruit Training Center. Great Lakes. III.


Navy Seaman Recruit

Daniel R. Patrick


Navy Seaman Recruit
Daniel R. Patrick, son of
Michelle I. Boyd of Wellborn
and Dan R. Patrick of Vidalia,
Ga., recently completed U.S.
Navy basic training at Recruit
Training Command, Great
Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week pro-
gram, Patrick completed a va-
riety of training which includ-
ed classroom study and practi-
cal instruction on naval cus-
toms, first aid, firefighting,
water safety and survival, and
shipboard and aircraft safety.
An emphasis was also placed
on physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot


camp is "Battle Stations." This
exercise gives recruits the
skills and confidence they
need to succeed in the fleet.
"Battle Stations" is designed
to galvanize the basic warrior
attributes of sacrifice, dedica-
tion, teamwork and endurance
in each recruit through the
practical application of basic
Navy skills and the core val-
ues of Honor, Courage and
Commitment. Its distinctly
"Navy" flavor was designed
to take into account what it
means to be a Sailor.
Patrick is a 2004 graduate of
Vidalia Comprehensive High
School ofVidalia, Ga.


Navy Petty Officer
2nd Class James F Beard


Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class
James F. Beard, son of Lawan-
na G. and David L. Beard of
Live Oak, recently returned
from a routine scheduled de-
ployment, while assigned to the
aircraft carrier USS Harry S.
Truman, homeported in Nor-
folk, Va.
Beard and more than 7, 600
of his fellow shipmates of the
Truman Carrier Strike Group
(CSG), deployed in support of


the global war on terrorism.
Carriers like the Harry S.
Truman are deployed through-
out the world to maintain U.S.
presence and provide rapid re-
sponse in times of crisis. They
serve as a highly visible deter-
rent to would-be aggressors,
and areequipped with the most
versatile and powerful weapons
and aircraft available.
Beard joined the Navy in
September 1998.

Last night a fellow said
to me, "When I die I want
to be buried in an air-con-
ditioned coffin."
"Why?" I asked.
"Where I'm going," he
explained, "I'll need it."
But, wouldn't you rather
go to heaven where there is


gain, not pain; joy,
not sorrow; flow-
ers not fire?
I "Yes," you say,
SR' "but how?"
It's not by pray-
.ui.ld ing, or paying, or
s" plugging. It's by
receiving the Lord
Jesus. Say to Him, "Dear
Lord, I receive Thee."
As you take Him, He'll
take away your sins and
transform your life.
Then you'll be heaven-
bound because you've been
heaven-born.

Half right but mostly wrong


Derek Maul.
maulhall @aol.conm,
Sunbelt Newspapers
My friends David and
Cheryl work with third grade
students. Recently, putting to-
gether a science project, one
budding empiricist penned the
following conclusion. "I was
half right, but I was mostly
wrong."
Would that such sage heads
prevail in the ongoing schem-
ing up in Tallahassee regard-
ing the wonderful world of
Florida education.
Florida voters said "yes"
when offered a constitutional
amendment limiting class size
in our public schools: We
were half right but mostly
wrong.
Governor Bush is leading
an effort to repeal the class-
size amendment because he
insists we cannot afford to fol-
low through. The president's
brother is half right but most-
ly wrong.
Essentially, there is no such
thing as a legislative "fix" for
what ails Florida education.
Lasting success in any en-
deavor can only follow grass-.
roots passion and conviction.
Late one night our cat
(Darth Maul) woke me re-
garding some small detail of
his life that demanded imme-
diate attention from the
household staff (his opinion).
I clicked on the TV at the con-
clusion of a 1970s vampire


movie. After an extended
struggle the hero pulled out a
cross and held it in front of the
advancing evil.
The villain momentarily re-
coiled then quickly -recovered
his composure, a menacing
smile blooming to full grin.
"It only works," her sneered
triumphantly, "if you be-
lieve."
Being the 1970s, the vam-
pire sank his teeth into the
victim's neck and the final
credits rolled.
Here in Florida, education
will only move forward to the
extent that each citizen choos-
es to believe. There needs to
be a sea-change in our hearts
and minds if we are going to
see any substantive progress
toward long-term solutions. It
only works if we believe.
I'm not talking about mon-
ey here. The fact that school
districts throughout our state
face increasing teacher short-
ages has less to do with class-
size or salary than it does a
culture of disinterest and ig-
norance that devalues both
teachers and their calling.
What good is a vote for
smaller class sizes when we
are unwilling to invest in
qualified professionals to oc-
cupy the rooms we are reluc-
tant to build? Half right but
mostly wrong.
We watch TV and shake our
heads at violence and disre-
spect, but the moment our


child is disruptive we under-
mine the teacher and blame
the school. Half right but
mostly wrong.
We circulate e-mails that
put down public schools as
"godless institutions" while
we ourselves neglect to teach
our children substantive faith.
We demand results in the
classroom but skip family
mealtimes in favor of constant
video games and unsuper-
vised TV. We insist teachers
train our children to be re-
spectful yet we disrespect
teachers at every opportunity.
Not even half right; more than
mostly wrong.
It only works if we believe.
Right now I say "repeal the
class size amendment." Be-
fore we try again we must first
make serious strides as a cul-
ture. I'm talking about active-
ly valuing education, support-
ing our neighborhood schools,
reorganizing our own priori-
ties, and holding children ac-
countable at home so they are
ready to learn.
If we fail to do this then
who in their right mind is go-
ing to volunteer to take all
those new teaching jobs? We
can't even fill the ones we
have.

We often take for granted the talents and
abilities that mothers must possess in
order to raise their children and run their
household successfully. And, being a
good mother and housewife requires i :'; '
Constant attention to the needs of her
family, and most often before any
consideration is given to her own
needs. Although these attributes may
seem to come naturally, this special ability
to put others first is usually a labor of love /
that is continually honed during the passing
years of motherhood. Many household
responsibilities including preparing meals,
washing clothes and making beds, may
seem to be thankless chores, but are
performed without reservation because of her
love for her family. Good mothers are aware of the challenging
responsibility of parents to raise their children to become good,
kind, and honest adults who know the importance of devotion and
commitment to God and to family. The constant concern and prayers
that mothers have for their children are never-ending, and the
admiration and respect all mothers deserve in return are reflected
by our love and affection for them.
Honor your father and your mother,
as the Lord your God has commanded you,
that your days may be long...
New K.J.V. Deuteronomy 5:16

Q HIS


Developing a Loving RelationshipThe Bible tells us that "God is Love, and he who
abides in love abides in God, and God in him" and that "We love
Him because He first loved us" (1 John 4:16,
19). These verses are true not only between
our Heavenly Father and us, but also when
we are involved with others. Children will
develop a love for their parents because of
the unselfish love their parents have for
them. Also, a wife or husband will develop
a stronger love for each other when their
love is returned to them. When someone
dislikes us or offends us, it is a natural
instinct to distance ourselves from them;
however, when someone is loving and kind to
us, we have a tendency to want to draw closer to
0 them. God's perfect love for mankind is
exemplified by His giving of His only begotten Son
to die for our sins. And, just as His forgiving love is
always extended to us, we should also be forgiving of
others. True forgiveness breeds love, and discovering
the good in others, and discounting their faults, are
essential for developing a loving relationship.

He who does not love does not know God,
for God is love.

The Diet

Celebrity cal
By Charles Stuart Platkin
With prices on the rise and
the health of the economy
questionable, bargain hunting
is back in vogue. We look for
bargains in clothing, electron-
ics, food and.travel - just to
name a few. We go to discount
price clubs and wait until
things go on sale so that we
can get more for less. We want
to spend wisely so we know
we're getting the most for our
money.
What if we were as cost-
conscious about our calorie
consumption as we are about
our spending?
Unfortunately, we have a fi-
nite number of calories in ohr
bodies' budgets, just as we
have limited funds in our
pocketbooks. So how can we
be sure we're making good
use of the calories we con-
sume? The answer: Look for
Calorie Bargains. Calorie Bar-
gains are foods that are rela-
tively low in calories but still
taste great and satisfy your
strongest temptations. You use
these "cheaper" foods to re-
place others you eat regularly
that are more calorically "ex-
pensive." But remember, if it
doesn't satiate you, a Calorie
Bargain can easily turn into a
Calorie Rip-off, which means
you'll end up eating more
food, consuming more calo-
ries and gaining more weight.
You can find your own
Calorie Bargains with just
three easy steps.
Step 1: Think of a food you
typically eat each day. .It
might be a guilty pleasure or
simply a high-calorie food
you think might be worth re-
placing - if you had a good
substitute.
Example:
The food I eat now that I'm
willing to change: Lay's regu-
lar potato chips, 150 calories
per serving.
Seiving sizeI would eat in a
'it~lcal sitting (Be honest!):
Three servings, about four
handfuls.
Total calories: 150 x 3 =
450 calories..
Step 2: Now, try to think of
a substitute for that food. It's
got to be something you think
you might like, and it's got to
have fewer calories.
Example:
My potential Calorie Bar-
gain: Air-popped popcorn, 25
calories per serving.
Serving size I would eat in a
typical sitting (Be honest!):
Three servings, about four
handfuls.
Total calories: 25 x 3 = 75
calories.
You just saved a whopping
375 calories. So, if you nor-
mally eat chips three times per
week, and you replace them
with popcorn, you could lose
as much as 15 pounds in a
year!
Step 3: Is this Calorie Bar-
gain worth it? Is it a good
choice? Why do I think it will
or won't last?
I've spent years finding
Calorie -Bargains for myself
and getting tips on others
from readers, so I began to
wonder what health "celebri-
ties" do to create the Calorie
Bargains that help them stay
fit. Here are a few notables:
Mike Huckabee, governor
of the state of Arkansas, lost
more than 100 pounds and
made healthy living a priority
for his administration.
Used to Eat: Premium ice
cream, 2 cups, 550 calories.
Calorie Bargain: Yarnell's
"Carb Aware" guilt-free ice
cream made with Splenda.


"You can't tell the difference
between this and regular pre-
mium ice cream, which it has
replaced in my diet. Yarnell's
is amazingly- good, and it's
what we serve at the gover-
nor's mansion..Guests are
shocked to find out it's a sug-
ar-free, low-fat, low-carb
product." 2 cups, 250 calories.
Calorie Savings: 300.
Bobby Flay, chef/restaura-
teur, cookbook author and
television personality. Forth-
coming book "Bobby Flay's
Grilling for Life" (Scribner,
May 2005).


Detective

orie bargains
. Used to Eat: "When I was
younger, I loved eating break-
fast sandwiches consisting of
fried eggs, bacon and cheese
every morning on my way to
work." 440 calories.
Calorie Bargain: "Now I
prepare healthy smoothies for
breakfast or yogurt with fresh
fruit." 16-ounce low-calorie
smoothie (no sugar), about
150 calories; low-fat yogurt
with fruit, 220 calories.
Calorie Savings: About
250.
Denise Austin, fitness ex-
pert, author, fitness DVD per-
sonality (star of more than 40
exercise videos and DVDs).
Most recent release is "Denise
Austin's Personal Training
System."
Used to Eat: Baked potato
(100 calories) with 2 table-
spoons of sour cream (about
120 calories) and 1 tablespoon
butter (60 calories) for a total
of 280 calories. Frappuccino
and whipped cream at Star-
bucks, 390 calories.
Calorie Bargain: "I've re-
placed the sour cream and
butter with 2 tablespoons of
salsa for 30 calories. And you
can make your own coffee
treat with a lot less calories.
SUse ice cubes, 1/2 cup skim
milk (about 50 calories) and
1/2 cup decaf coffee. Froth it
up and blend it."
Calorie Savings: 150 for the
potato extras; 340 for the cof-
fee drink.
Drew Nieporent, renowned
New York City restaurateur
(Tribeca Grill, Nobu, Nobu
London and The Coach
House), lost more than 100
pounds.
Used to Eat: Cheeseburger
and fried onions, 550 calories;
potato chips, 300 calories.
Calorie Bargain: Now it's
grilled salmon with arugula,
450 calories; pickles, 20 calo-
ries.
Calorie Sat ingi: 100 for the
Burger, 280Tfdie{l c-li d
Anne Russell, editor-in-
chief of "Shape"-magazine.
Used to Eat: Pretzels or
chips for snacking, 300 calo-
ries. "Chips and other pre-
pared snack foods weren't im-
portant to me in a nutritional
sense, but they were extreme-
ly important to me in a recre-
ational eating sense. Between
meals, especially in the after-
noon, I crave a fun snack -
.something that has a lot of
crunch and strong flavor."
Calorie Bargain: "My fa-
vorite substitution is half a
bag of sugar snap peas, 100
calories. The peas, which you
eat whole in the pod, are
crispy, a little sweet and, with
a little salt, are far more satis-
fying than chips. Veggies like
radishes and carrots are also
good substitutes."
Calorie Savings: 200.
Charles Stuart Platkin, nu-
trition and wellness advocate,
author, columnist and Ph.D.
candidate, lost 50 pounds and
has kept it off for 10 years.
Used to Eat: Chips, cookies
and ice cream in the evening,
600 calories.
Calorie Bargain: I have
loads of Calorie Bargains -
that's how I lost 50 pounds -
but I guess .one of my fa-
vorites is pan popcorn. I don't
love air-popped corn, so I
started experimenting and
found a way to use regular
kernels, a skillet and cooking
spray. Put the kernels in a
deep pot that has been lightly
coated with vegetable cooking
spray, cover and turn on the
heat. Make sure to open the
lid slightly from time to time


to release the steam. Shake the
pot during cooking. After a
number of burned batches I
was finally able to get it right.
5 cups (popped): 100 calories.
Calorie Savings: About 500.
Charles Stuart Platkin is a
nutrition and public health
advocate, author of the best
seller; "Breaking the Pattern"
(Plume, 2005) and "The Auto-
matic Diet" (Hudson Street
Press, 2005) and founder of
Integrated Wellness Solutions.

Let's celebrate conservation


ulation. Districts often have
minimal budgets and may not
be able to meet their conserva-
tion goals without volunteer
help. Volunteers in education
can help youth (like me) learn
to be responsible stewards of
the land by having activities
such as demonstration projects,
speech contests, educational
workshops and farm tours.
Florida Conservation Dis-
tricts are making efforts to pro-
tect, conserve and provide for
the wide use of its soil and wa-
ter resources to serve'the needs
of today as well as those of to-
morrow. It reflects the contri-
butions of time and effort by


countless citizens who love and
respect the land.
Let's CELEBRATE CON-
SERVATION! In almost every
way, our lives are richer and
fuller than at any other time in
history. People live longer and
enjoy better health. We can eat
an incredible variety of fresh
foods any time of the year.
Overall air and water quality
continues to improve. Our for-
est resources grow abundant
and healthy. People have the
ability to produce, travel, learn
and play more than anyone
would have thought possible a
generation ago.
Many of these improve-


ments in our lives come direct-
ly from good conservation
practices. Along with our peo-
ple, our nations greatest trea-
surers are our abundant and ex-
cellent soil and water re-
sources. Good conservation
helps make sure we have the
essentials of good food and
clean water. With our basic
needs fulfilled, we can spend
our time making better lives for
ourselves, our families and oth-
ers.
As we celebrate conserva-
tion, we should pause to con-
sider and thank the many peo-
ple who work every day to pro-
tect, manage, and improve our


natural resources. I applaud
the pioneers of conservation
and encourage those who con-
tinue to explore its frontiers to-
day.
I marvel at the most incredi-
ble growth of knowledge about
our world that allows us to con-
serve resources wisely. We still
have much to learn and we will
face many resource challenges
and new problems will arise.
However, as we learn, grow
and adapt, lets give thanks for
this great life. And as we re-
view the many things for which
we have to be thankful, let us
CELEBRATE CONSERVA-
TION!!!!!


New SECC forecasts help southeast


farmers reduce production risks


On May 13, 2001, upon sign-
ing the farm bill, President
George W. Bush made these
sound remarks, "American
farm and ranch families em-
body some of the best values of
our nation, hard work and risk
taking, love or the land and
love of the country. Farming is
the first industry of America.
The industry that feeds us, the
industry that clothes us and the
industry that increasingly pro-
vides more of our energy. The
success of American farmers
and ranchers is essentialto the
success of the American econo-
my. Later he commented,
there are no better stewards of
the land than those who rely on
the productivity of the land."
I echo these words of our
President, agriculturist are the
true leaders and protectors of
our great land. For they know
the importance of protecting
our natural resources. Con-
serving our natural resources is
an obligation shared by every-
one. Clean water and produc-
tive soils are important to our
quality of life now and in the
future. This year Stewardship
week is April 24 through May 1
the theme is "Celebrate Con-
servation." I believe this will
be a good time to reflect on the
achievements of early conser-
vationists and on what we can
do for future generations.
In the early 1930's along
with the greatest depression
this nation ever experienced
came a disaster known as the
Dust Bowl. Following a severe
drought in the Great Plains, the
regions soil began to erode and
blow away creating huge black
dust storms that blotted out the
sun and swallowed the coun-
tryside. On Capital Hill, while
testifying about the erosion
problem, soil scientist Hugh
Bennett threw back the curtains
to reveal a sky blackened by
dust. Congress unanimously
passed Legislation declaring
soil and water conservation a
National Policy and Priority.


Since about three fourths of the
continental United States is pri-
vately owned, Congress real-
ized that only active, voluntary
support from landowners
would guarantee the success of
conservation work on private
land. In 1937, President Roo-
sevelt wrote the governors of
all states recommending legis-
lation that would allow local
landowners to form soil and
water conservation districts.
Over 70 years have changed
the landscape. Farmers use
new technology to improve
crops and livestock productivi-
ty while practicing environ-
mental stewardship. Wide-
spread conservation practices
like: planting trees and leaving
crop residue on fields to pre-
vent soil from blowing and
washing away. Land managers
have changed their practices
from the way they till their
land, to the crop they plant and
how much fertilizer they use to
protect the natural resources we
all depend on. Although
weather still acts as both friend
and foe to the farmer, the Dust
Bowl has taught everyone a
distant but valuable history les-
son.
Fortunately, natural resource
management is well in place in
our great state of Florida.
Through Soil and Water Con-
servation Districts, community
leaders, together with state and
Federal experts have developed
conservation programs that
will help protect our natural re-
sources well into the next cen-
tury.
People are the key to the suc-
cess of conservation. Volun-
teers, whether serving on dis-
trict boards or participating in a
river cleanup are important be-
cause local people offer exten-
sive expertise and personal in-
terest regarding the best ways
to take care of their own natur-
al resources. Effective man-
agement of natural resources at
the local level reduces the need
of outside intervention and reg-


of drought this summer, so
chances are good that crops will
have adequate moisture," he
said.
Stooksbury also said that,
with the variability associated
with day-to-day weather during
the neutral phase, a cold spell or
two is still possible across much
of the Southeast.
SECC's Web site, http://ag-
climate.org, is available to the
public and provides monthly
forecasts of rainfall and temper-
ature for all counties in Alaba-
ma, Florida and Georgia.
It also allows farmers in some
counties to get personalized
predictions of the probability
that their yields for peanuts,
potatoes and tomatoes will be
good, average or poor. Users
can tailor their crop yield fore-
casts based on the soil type of
their land, whether or not they
irrigate and their average yield
in the past.
The Web site's highly specif-
ic forecasts are important be-
cause what a producer is experi-
encing frequently is quite dif-
ferent than what's happening in
neighboring counties, said John
Bellow, an SECC extension
specialist at FSU.


"We hope that more growers
will use our Web site when they
plan their planting and harvest-
ing, and prepare for freezes,"
said Clyde Fraisse, an extension
specialist and SECC researcher
at the University of Florida's In-
stitute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, or UF/IFAS, in
Gainesville. "Growers also can
use it to link to other informa-
tion about climate, crop man-
agement and crop insurance."
Jim Jones, a distinguished
professor of agricultural and bi-
ological engineering at
UF/IFAS and SECC researcher,
said additional crop data is be-
ing added to the site to help
farmers.
SECC member institutions
are the University of Florida,
Florida State University, Uni-
versity of Miami, University of
Georgia, Auburn University
and University of Alabama at
Huntsville.
SECC is funded by the Na-
tional Oceanic and Atmospher-
ic Administration (NOAA), the
USDA Cooperati "States Re-,
search, Education and Exten-
sion Service (CSREES) and the
USDA's Risk Management
Agency.

Farmers in the Southeastern
United States can now learn
about changes in seasonal cli-
mate patterns earlier than ever,
thanks to a new long-term fore-
casting system developed by the
Southeast Climate Consortium
(SECC), a partnership among
six universities in Alabama,
Florida and Georgia.
SECC researchers are using.
data that has been collected dai-
ly for the past 50 years from 214
weather stations in Alabama,
Florida and Georgia to make
county-by-county forecasts that
farmers can view on the Inter-
net. The SECC, which produces
its forecasts at Florida State
University in Tallahassee, has
issued the first in a series of
quarterly forecasts aimed at
helping farmers reduce risks to
their crops and increase their
odds of a successful growing
season.
The SECC's new spring out-
look indicates that unseasonably
heavy rain in March has
recharged soil moisture, thereby
allowing crops to flourish.
"March rainfall was up to
three times above normal in
Georgia," said David Stooks-
bury, a SECC researcher and
state climatologist at the Uni-
versity of Georgia in Athens.
"By the middle of April, soil

moisture across most of Geor-
gia is ranked near the 80th per-
centile for this time of the year.
This means that in 80 out of 100
years we would expect soils to
be drier in mid-April than they
currently are."
Recent heavy rains have also
reduced the risk of wildfires this
season, the SECC spring out-
look said. The outlook is based
on the Keetch Byram Drought
Index, which provides a month-
ly assessment of wildfire risks
in the Southeast.
"The SECC approach to fore-
casting is based on climate
phases and works great during
an El Nifio or a La Nifia phase,
but it's less useful during what's
called a neutral phase," Stooks-
bury said.
"For the past two years, the
Southeast has been in a neutral
phase," said Jim O'Brien, direc-
tor of the Center for Ocean-At-
mospheric Prediction Studies at
FSU. "People often assume that
a neutral phase will bring aver-
age weather."
But, he said, that's not true.
"Weather can be all over the
place - from dry to wet or aver-
age - in a neutral phase. Still,
there's currently no indication

IrIfllA NA IVIAT DV 3 SUWNNE DOAL


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 -L
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
comments 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.


Tm








Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


@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 gets
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 in 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.

FRIDAYMAY 6 2005


RightOn 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.)

Taste everyday meals with turkey

Lose the guilt - not the flavor -

with "the perfect protein."


Here's heart-healthy and tasty news at the
start of a new year: Eating healthy doesn't
have to be unsavory! A side-by-side
comparison of meats from the USDA
National Nutrient Database shows that
turkey (3.5-ounce portions) can shave up to
150 calories per meal - sometimes even
more. With healthy, delectable meals
featuring turkey, "the perfect protein," you
can lose the guilt, not the flavor.
"When properly incorporated into a
balanced approach to physical fitness,
weight management and overall nutrition,
turkey can help people attain their goals,"
says Dr. Rob Wildman, R.D., director of
nutrition at Bally Total Fitness.


"Many cooks still look at turkey as
limited to whole birds and aren't aware of
all the products available in their local
grocery store's meat case year-round," says
Chris Seib, Honeysuckle White and Shady
Brook Farms brand manager.
Products include turkey breast cutlets,
tenderloin, sausage, bratwurst, ground
turkey and more.
"With turkey, families don't have to give
up their favorite meals like spaghetti,
burgers, salads and pizza," says Judie Byrd,
Certified Turkey Diva.
