The home of a former Broward fire
chief, Don Todd, in Wellborn, was a
stinking mess this week as it and the
family's car lay in total ruin after a fire


early June 4 completely destroyed the
home and car. The unmistakable smell
of burned materials was in the air, soot
was on the ground and in a neighbor's
yard and pool and one of the family's
white dogs was now gray from investi-

her retired fire chief husband, Don, shared that was lost in the early morning hours

City public works employees vote to join union


Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
After a 34 - 2 vote June 2 to
unionize, public works employees


of the city of Live Oak cheered and
hollered, then went out to dinner to-
gether along with their families to
celebrate their victory.
The unionization vote may pre-
vent the privatization of the depart-


ment, or it may not have any effect
at all. And, that decision could come
sometime after 7:30 p.m. June 14 at
the city's monthly meeting where it's
expected a decision will be made on
whether or not to accept a proposal


by OMI to take over the public
works department and run it at a cost
savings to the city.
Some of those same city workers

who voted the union in indi-
cated they will be at the meet-
ing and plan to ask to be heard
on the issue of privatization.
Of the 37 eligible workers
who voted at the city's mainte-
nance garage, 34 voted to go
with the union, two voted
against and one ballot had no
markings and was not count-
ed. Anyone who has an objec-
tion to the outcome of the
election has 15 days to file
those objections to the vote,
but none was obvious as the
jubilant city workers shouted
and congratulated each other
after the vote was announced
by Desmond Fields, an elec-
tions specialist with Public
Employees Relations Com-
mission (PERC).
The affirmative vote makes
the union the bargaining agent
for the workers, according to
Jeff Henderson, business
agent for the Local Union
1205, International Union of
Electrical Workers of
Gainesville, who was presents
for the vote.
Soon to be five-year city
employee William Sanders,


who described himself as "a
ringleader in getting the
union," sat at the table along
with Henderson, Fields and
another city worker, David
Hester, a supervisor. There
was no celebrating or talking,
until the final vote count was
announced. "We needed some
representation down here,"
Sanders said after the vote.
Sanders made his statement as
he immediately sat in a chair
so his wife and daughter could
shave the beard he said he
grew from February to pro-
mote the unionization. A hair-
cut was also promised for the
coming days after he said he
grew his hair long also in pro-
motion of the union.
If the city agrees to accept
the proposal made last week
by OMI to privatize the pub-
lic works department, the
union is expected to file a pe-
tition for union representa-
tion for OMI, according to
Henderson.
Henderson said the petition
to hold a union election was
filed in February. It was then,
he said, that the city brought
in OMI to consider privatiza-
tion, something Henderson


said could be a violation of
state laws. "We're going to
fight them with the privatiza-
tion," Henderson stated mo-
ments after the vote was final-
ized June 2 at the city's main-
tenance garage.
Henderson said the presen-
tation by OMI last month put
the city employees in a bad
light. "The problem was with
city management, not the city
workers," Henderson stated.
Henderson added that because
the union now is the bargain-
ing agent for the city public
works department, he doesn't
feel OMI can guarantee the
price they gave the city last
month to take over the depart-
ment.
"I've got no problem with
the union," said Councilman
Ken Duce. "It's their peroga-
tive to do it, and on a personal
basis, not speaking as a coun-
cilman, I have no problem
with it." Attempts to reach
several other councilmen for
comments before press time
were unsuccessful.

Two others in the vehicle
received incapacitating in-
juries, FHP said.
According to FHP, Johnny
Telsume, 57, and Louissaint
Pierre, 52, both of Belle
Glade, died in the 2:10 p.m.
crash five miles west of Live
Oak on Interstate 10.
The crash happened as the
1993 Toyota driven by Tel-
sume was westbound on I-10
and a left rear tire separated,
causing the driver to lose
control of the vehicle, FHP
said. The Toyota left the
roadway onto the north
shoulder, where it over-
turned, striking a sign with.
the roof as it rolled, FHP
said. The van came to a final
rest on its roof facing south-
east, FHP said. .

OPINION

Regarding

Opportunity

Scholarships

S- By Gov. Jeb Bush

S"As the Florida Supreme
Court hears arguments for
S' and against Florida's Oppor-
- tunity Scholarship Program,
t- . I would like to reiterate how
the program has given hope
to parents and students by
offering meaningful educa-
tional choices.
"Opportunity Scholar-
ships have given hundreds
Gov.' eb Bush of Florida parents the
chance to send their child to
a school they believe improves their child's chances for
success. These students can choose to attend private or
public, secular or religious schools - or stay in their
own school.
"Today more than 700 students have taken adv. 'age
of these educational choices they could only dream
about before. Of the 719 Opportunity Scholarship stu-
dents currently enrolled in private schools, 61 percent
are African-American and 33 percent are Hispanic stu-
dents whose parents cannot afford to send them to pri-
vate schools. We want to give every student a chance
to succeed, not just those whose parents can afford to
send them to private or parochial schools.
"Florida has a uniform system of public education'
and every child in the state of Florida, whether they
currently attend private or public schools, has an op-
portunity to participate. The Opportunity Scholarship
Program does not detract from the free public school
system - it is simply an additional option for students
who otherwise lack meaningful choices.
"The Opportunity Scholarship Program provides real
choice to students - while also driving greater student
achievement in low performing public schools. Inde-
pendent studies have demonstrated this. And since the
program began in 1999, the percentage of African-
American 4th grade students reading at grade level or
higher has increased from 23 percent to 56 percent, and
of Hispanic students from 37 percent to 66 percent.
"The bottom line is the Opportunity Scholarship Pro-
gram gives parents options and empowers them to
make the best decisions for their child's education. I
firmly believe this improves our children's overall
achievement.
"Today, thousands of children attend private schools,
including hundreds of non-religious schools, under
Florida's choice programs. Their parents have chosen
these schools, and we should honor that choice."

OPINION

Victimhood: Rhetoric or reality?


If you listened to the rhetoric
of black politicians and civil
rights leaders, dating back to the -.
Reagan years, you would have --
been convinced that surely by
now black Americans would be
back on the plantation. Accord-
ing to them, President Reagan,
and later Presidents Bush I and ', 2
II, would turn back the clock on BY WALTE
civil rights. They'd appoint
"new racists" dressed in three-piece suits to act
through the courts and administrative agencies to re-
verse black civil rights and economic gains. We can
now recognize this rhetoric as the political equivalent
of the "rope-a-dope."
As my colleague Tom Sowell pointed out in a recent
column, "Liberals, Race and History," if the Democra-
tic party's share of the black vote ever fell to even 70
percent, it's not likely that the Democrats would ever
win the White House or Congress again. The strategy
liberal Democrats have chosen, to prevent loss of the
black vote, is to keep blacks paranoid and in a constant
state of fear. But is it fear of racists, or being driven
back to the plantation, that should be a top priority for
blacks? Let's look at it.
Only 30 to 40 percent of black males graduate from
high school. Many of those who do graduate emerge
with reading and math skills of a white seventh- or
eighth-grader. This is true in cities where a black is
mayor, a black is superintendent of schools and the ma-
jority of principals and teachers are black. It's also true
in cities where the per pupil education expenditures are
among the highest in the nation.
Across the U.S., black males represent up to 70 per-
cent of prison populations. Are they in prison for
crimes against whites? To the contrary, their victims
are primarily other blacks. Department of Justice sta-
tistics for 2001 show that in nearly 80 percent of vio-
lent crimes against blacks, both the victim and the per-
petrator were the same race. In other words, it's not
Reaganites, Bush supporters, right-wing ideologues or
the Klan causing blacks to live in fear of their lives and
property and making their neighborhoods economic
wastelands.

MINORITY

VIEW

R WILLIAMS


What about the decline of the
black family? In 1960, only 28
percent of black females be-
tween the ages of 15 and 44
were never married. Today, it's
56 percent. In 1940, the illegiti-
macy rate among blacks was 19
percent, in 1960, 22 percent, and
today, it's 70 percent. Some ar-
gue that the state of the black
family is the result of the legacy


of slavery, discrimination and poverty. That has to be
nonsense. A study of 1880 family structure in Philadel-
phia shows that three-quarters of black families were
nuclear families, comprised of two parents and chil-
dren. In New York City in 1925, 85 percent of kin-re-
lated black households had two parents. In fact, ac-
cording to Herbert Gutman in "The Black Family in
Slavery and Freedom: 1750-1925," "Five in six chil-
dren under the age of 6 lived with both parents." There-
fore, if one argues that what we see today is a result of
a legacy of slavery, discrimination and poverty, what's
the explanation for stronger black families at a time
much closer to slavery - a time of much greater dis-
crimination and of much greater poverty? I think that a
good part of the answer is there were no welfare and
Great Society programs.
Since black politicians and the civil rights establish-
ment preach victimhood to blacks, I'd prefer that they
be more explicit when they appear in public fora. Were
they to be so, saying racists are responsible for black
illegitimacy, blacks preying on other blacks and black
family breakdown, their victimhood message would be
revealed as idiotic. But being so explicit is not as far-
fetched as one might think. In a campaign speech be-
fore a predominantly black audience, in reference to so
many blacks in prison, presidential candidate John
Kerry said, "That's unacceptable, but it's not their
fault."

COMMENTARY


Hey guys! Those
In the annals of dumb crim-
Sinals, there's one particular es-
capade that always ends badly
for the culprits. One would
think that by now even the se-
S._ verely cerebrally deficient
thieves would learn from oth-
.e' .rs' mistakes.
At least once a year, some

a home by climbing down the
S chimney. Hey you nitwits!
"The Three Little Pigs" was a
Dwain Walden fairy tale! Santa Claus and the
chimney.is folklore!
Oh well, like politicians getting caught compromising
their oath of office, it will happen again and again. The
most recent such event took place in Webster City, Iowa.
Javier Torrez, 20, was charged with trespassing after he
got stuck in a chimney while trying to break into a house,
police said. I'm surprised he was only charged with tres-
passing. But they couldn't charge him with stupidity. That's
not a crime.
A neighbor heard someone calling for help near a vacant
home and police found Torrez in the chimney in the base-
ment of the home.
All they could see was Torrez's legs and feet sticking
out.
Police said Torrez had climbed onto the roof and slid
down the chimney before getting stuck. That's safe deduc-
tive reasoning. What I mean is, I don't think he would
have robbed the house and then tried to escape up the
chimney. Wiggling your nose won't actually propel you up
that chute.
I guess what most of these airheads don't realize is that
most modem chimneys have dampers in them just above
the fireplace. And the throats of most fireplaces are very
small spaces. Not only that, most chimneys are built with
flue liners which are very small. Not even Barney Fife
could slide down those. Just ask any brick mason.
Of course, I would think the police hope the bad guys


were fairy tales!
keep trying this. That way, they don't have to chase them,
and they have what is often referred to as prima facie evi-
dence. Prima facie is Latin for "Ladies and gentlemen of
the jury, here's a picture of the. idiot dangling in the fire-
place."
But then in California, I suppose a person caught in a
chimney could come up with excuses that a jury would
consider plausible, and who knows about that verdict?
"Yes, your Honor, those indeed are my legs dangling in
that fireplace. You see I was considering trying out for
Santa in this year's Christmas play at the community the-
ater, and I just wanted to rehearse a 'bit in advance. My
house doesn't have a chimney, so I drove around until I
found one. And, yes, I know I should have gotten permis-
sion to rehearse there."
As a kid, we had a fireplace in our house. It smoked
more than it heated so my dad closed up the fireplace and
hooked a wood-burning heater into the flue. I knew even
way back then that Santa wasn' t about to come down that
chimney. He might climb in through the kitchen window,
choosing splinters over soot.
In fact, most of the fireplaces I recall in my childhood
were' small and shallow. I was told that it was a real art to
build a fireplace that would draw correctly and roll heat
into the room. Back then, that room was often called the
fire room. By the way, the Latin for fire room is "keepus
warmus."
Now back to that thing about fairy tales and reality. I re-
alize some people have trouble with the transition, a dis-
tinction that seemingly is a problem in many venues and is
bipartisan sometimes when it comes to Republicans and
Democrats.
I recall as a teenager observing where a flood had washed
out a bridge, and a fellow standing nearby said, "Well I
guess that took care of them damned old trolls." Of course
he was just joking. At least I think he was joking, although
he spoke kind of "gruff." I never heard of him playing San-
ta Claus and actually trying to come down the chimney.

In Loving Memory of

Lisa Neal
From my heart these words I say to you,
Believe and trust - everyone is true.
. When I close my eyes for evenings end,
Thoughts of you, the rest I spend,
.I think of your smile, your laugh, you talk
and if I think rel heard, 111 see you walk.
In my dreams I can see you so clear,
You re so far away and yet so near.
.Kisses and hugs are how we greet each
, other, this is all we need from
. a daughter to her mother.
Maybe one day when I get there
we can once again be the duo, the team,
the pair. But until that day comes
I will meet you in my dreams,
Lisa and Tab, the duo, the team.
Happy Birthday, LeLe!
I miss you so much!

All my love to you,

gating the fire site.
Although the home is about a
mile from the Wellborn Volun-
teer Fire Department -and the
county's Fire/Rescue is nearly
12 miles away, the first people
to arrive on scene, the family
said, was two deputies about a
minute after the 911 call was
made, then County Fire/Rescue
followed by Wellbom's volun-
teers. From there, the family
said, it was a blur of activity and
people, but still the home was


lost.
While the family thought it
took more than 30 minutes for
help to arrive, according to
County Fire records it took 17
minutes from the time the call
arrived at county dispatch until
the county units were on scene.
"If I had only had a water
hose, I could have put that fire
out," said homeowner Don
Todd this week as he mourned
the loss of his home and life's
possessions. But, Todd and his
wife, Jo, admit, they are blessed
beyond description because

If your estate, including your home, is at least $100,000, you should
know about Living Trusts. Many estates are not settled as intended.
Heirs often receive far less than expected due to probate, wills, estate taxes
and court controlled guardianship. Consider these problems:
* Wills can lead to costly probate, lengthy delays of estate
distribution and public access to your estate records.
* At incapacity or death, without proper planning, the courts or
someone other than your choice could make your healthcare or
guardianship decisions.
* Estates over $1,000,000 could be subject up to 50% taxes which may
require heirs to use inheritance to pay them.
Trusts are an effective planning tool to eliminate or minimize
these problems. This Seminar will show you how trusts work and help
you determine if your estate, however modest, is properly planned.

they, their precious 4-year-old
granddaughter and their animals
were all spared. Still, the cou-
ple, married 46 years and in
their 60s, said some of the ef-
forts of volunteer fire fighters
appeared to them to be less than
professional as the Todds
watched their home bum while
they said mistake after mistake
was made in the fire fighting
process early Saturday morn-
ing. "If you have ever watched
Keystone Cops, it was here!"
Todd said, shaking his head
with tears in his eyes.
The couple both said they'
thought they called 911 on the


cell phone at 3:30 a.m. because
as they escaped the house the
clock showed that time. The
house phone was not working
because the power was off, they
said. As it turns out, the electric-
ity had been disrupted due to the
fire and the call actually came in
at 3:58 a.m., according to.
Suwannee County Fire records.
No electricity is the reason
Todd, a veteran fire fighter,
could not put the fire out, he
said.
The Todds said while their
granddaughter was spending
the weekend with them, she was
sleeping with Jo, and Don Todd
slept in the room they had pre-
pared for the child. That
arrangement may have saved
the family's lives. Todd said be-
cause he's a light sleeper and
was in the child's room, he
heard the familiar crackling
sound of fire in the early mom-
ing hours and knew instantly
what was happening. He imme-
diately awakened his wife and
granddaughter and hustled them
down the stairs, grabbing two
baby kittens they were caring
for and got out of the house. "If
my husband hadn't been in the
little granddaughter's bedroom,
we would have all died," said Jo
on Monday.
Still, the Todds say some of
their belongings, which includ-
ed a large doll collection, an-
tiques, coin collection and Jo's
family heirlooms, could have
been saved if more profession-
alism had been shown. "This
county commission and this
(volunteer) fire service cost me
my home," Todd said.
Todd said the career fire
fighters arrived on scene first
and did a great job of knocking
down the fire. "Those boys
went up stairs and knocked that
fire down," he said. But, he said,
while fighting the fire, they ran
out of water.
According to County
Fire/Rescue reports written by
Lt. Eddie Hand, he instructed
Tanker 51 (Wellborn) to supply
his engine with water and then


BY SUSAN K. LAMB
Democrat Managing Editor


Summer is truly here and
the weather is warming up
and folks are getting out and
enjoying all the summer ac-
tivities. We're still trying to
get caught up and get all
your events published. Don't
despair, it will happen, it just
takes time.
My moving plans are mov-
ing right along...just not fast
enough. Hopefully, by the
end of the month all will
have transpired and the.
move will have taken place
and our new life experience
begun. I'm excited and real-
ly looking forward to it. You
know, new chance to plant


new trees and plants and
things that make my heart go
"thump" just by thinking
about it. I'm glad my hubby
doesn't read my column, he
wouldn't like to hear that I
can't wait to plant more
stuff! Please don't tell!
Although it's hot, it's not
the usual summer heat we've
been having. But, it can still
burn and cause cancer so be
sure to use sunscreen if you
are outside.
I have seen several old
friends lately that I just
haven't run into in a while
and was very glad to chat
with them. Among them,


\\e x\anit to thank everyone who remembered us in an\
a ay, food. \ sits, caids, calls and pra', eis. on the death of our
belov ed husband and brother. God bless each one of \ ou.
Reba Binmon and Opal Hoffman


three county fire fighters went
into the home. Meanwhile, a
propane tank next to the garage
began venting and Wellborn
volunteers were instructed to
cool down the tank and start ex-
tinguishing the car fire. As the
three fire fighters inside the
house made good progress and
there was no longer any danger
of fire spreading from the
garage, Hand said in the report
the three went to the second
floor where the men "continued
making progress extinguishing
fire." It was then the water in
Engine 1 of County Fire/Rescue
ran out of water. Hand went out-
side to find out about the water
supply situation and told Station
51 (Wellborn) "to hook .to our
truck now as we were out of
water" and it took approximate-
ly 20-30 minutes to get water
supplied to Engine 1, Hand
wrote in the report. Hand said in
the. report that there were prob-
lems with Station 51 personnel
getting the truck to pump and
"delays" were a factor in fire
suppression.
Todd said he's upset that he
pays fire assessment and when
-he needed it most, there wasn't
enough training and proper
equipment to save his home.
'We're paying our hard-earned
money to be able to sleep in our
beds at. night without burning
up!" he lamented. Todd said he
wants to know why the county
hasn't used the increased fire as-
sessment money to make im-
provements. "What is that tax
money going for?" he asked.
"I've paid my share and by God,
I want to know where it's gone!"
Even though the family is
devastated over their loss, Jo
Todd said she appreciates so
much the kindness of their
neighbors who donated money
to help them get clothing and
personal items the next day, and
for the help of the American
Red Cross.
A call to Wellborn Fire Chief
Tom Maynard Tuesday after-
noon was not returned by press
time.

County EMS Director Murel
McDonald said the delay in get-
ting the water connection be-
tween the tanker and Engine 1
came because "the person on
the apparatus did not know how
to accomplish refill of the coun-
ty truck so they (the county) ran
out."
"Bottom line is, the volun-
teers refused to get the training
they needed and now this fami-
ly is homeless," said County
Fire Coordinator Johnny
Howard and McDonald agreed.
"We only have four profession-
al fire fighters on duty for each
shift - two which are paid out of
EMS budget - that's not
enough," Howard said. "If the
County Commission will give
us control of this fire service,
we'll resolve the problems - all
it takes is a vote."
McDonald and Howard said
although the fire assessment
was raised from $35 to $50 re-
cently, the increase was eaten
away by increased costs in pro-
viding the county service. And,
during a fire board meeting last
week, "Volunteers said they
don't want to do 160-hour train-
ing," McDonald said. "Some
are not physically capable of
undergoing the training, and
some said they aren't capable.
They have decided to only take
brush fire training and remain
volunteers."
State law requires that any fire
fighter who goes into a burning
home be fully equipped and ful-
ly trained with the 160-hour
state training, something the
county has stressed for the past
two years to county volunteers.
"Three votes is all it takes to
stop this," said Howard and Mc-
Donald.
"Had the tanker pumped wa-
ter, the house could have been
saved so personal effects could
have been saved," Suwannee
County Coordinator Johnny
Wooley said.

Daughter Kathy and several

Aruba (no, they didn't see
what happened to the 18-year-
old!) and Bonaire where they
went diving. The video from
their activities is beautiful and

sense of humor due to his cre-
ation of some of those sea
creatures! Among those on the
trip were Jim and Dana Mc-
Coy, Kathy, Tessa Ferreira and
her mom, Patti. Dad, Blaze
Ferreira, stayed home to watch
over the animals while the rest
of his family traveled. Little
Miss Tessa has become a sea-

and now a trip by air to the is-

THE BLESSING
My wife invited some peo-
ple to dinner. At the table,
she turned to our six-year-
old daughter and said,
"Would you like to say the
blessing?" "I wouldn't know
what to say," she
replied."Just say what you
hear Mommy say," my wife
said.Our daughter bowed her
head and said, "Dear Lord,
why on earth did I invite all
these people to dinner?"

The Wellborn Blueberry
Festival was a smashing suc-
cess. The Wellborn Commu-
nity Association (WCA)
President Jack Gaylord said
this year's festival was en-
joyed by one of the largest
crowds in the festival's histo-
ry. The pancakes were sold
out by 10 a.m. but not before
1,000 breakfasts were served,
and not just local folks came
to experience the wonderful
down-home hospitality Well-
born is so well known for.
During the Dessert Bake Off
Contest Friday night I had the
pleasure of meeting Donna
and Hardy Bryan from St. Pe-
tersburg. Hardy was kind and
generous enough to use his
camera expertise and take
pictures of the activities. Sue
Lamb, who was to be a com-
bination bake-off judge and
photographer was under the
weather and couldn't make it.
I felt great relief that Hardy
was kind enough to pinch hit
for us. Hope you're feeling
better, Sue, and thanks a mil-
lion to Hardy. Dessert Bake
Off winners were ... first
place Carol Johnson won a
blue ribbon and. $50, second
place Beckey Gaylord won a
red ribbon and $25 and third
place Gerri Kunze won a
white ribbon and $15. Judges
for the bake-off were District
4 County Commissioner Billy
Maxwell, Fran Martin and
Jackie Tatman. Everyone en-
joyed the tasting party after-
wards.
The Lonnie Jolson Band
entertained on Friday and
took the stage again several


times throughout Saturday's
activities. I joked with Lon-
nie, the band's namesake and
founder, about the types of
engagements the five member
band plays. He told me they
will play for most any gather-
ing, from Bar Mitzvahs to
Weddings. These guys like to
entertain people with their
laid-back, country style of
picking and singing. Looking
for great entertainment for
your special event? Contact
them at 386-776-1882.
The crowd enjoyed a sur-
prise visit from Elvis, a/k/a
Fred Perry of Lake City. Fred
does a marvelous imperson-
ation of the late, great King of
Rock and Roll. Fred's singing
is always a favorite attraction
each year for those attending
the festival. Steven Lee, an-
other local favorite, also en-
tertained the festival crowd.
The food is always my fa-
vorite, and there was plenty
to choose from. My favorite
booth, if I were judging, be-
longed .to Tim "Stump"
Hartsfield and his wife
Cassie. Stump and Cassie are
from Crawfordsville and
have worked Welltlorn's
Blueberry Festival for 12
years, giving them the honor
of the longest returning ven-
dor. Some of their specialties
include ... fried green toma-
toes, blooming onions, curly
fries, sweet potato curly fries
w/butter and cinnamon sugar.
But my very favorite is
Stump's hand-dipped, foot-
long hot dogs and Cassie's
funnel cakes. I ate one of
each. Linda Gaylord's fa-


PAGE 9A
vorite is Stump's fried green
tomatoes. I'm already looking
forward to next year's festi-
val. Maybe I'll try some of
Linda's favorite fried green
tomatoes.
The newly crowned Miss
Wellborn Blueberry Queen is
Dixie Randolph and Little
Miss Wellborn Blueberry is
Serena Touchton. Shannon
Gaylord presented the contes-
tants, and last year's Miss
Wellborn Blueberry, Jessie
Lewis, crowned this year's
winners. Each winner re-
ceived a gift package valued
at $85. Shannon wanted to
say thanks to all the sponsors
of this year's pageant ... Gay-
lord's Land Clearing, Joni's
Cakes, Diamond W Land
Clearing, and a special thanks
to Power 102 for their on-air
sponsorship.
Jessie Henderson won first
place, $25 in the Pie Eating
Contest, second went to
Francheska Barrett, $15 and
Andrew Carlucci placed third,
$10. Everyone had pie from
head-to-toe. And speaking of
pies, the country store sold
out of their 80 pies before
noon and by day's-end was
out of all the jellies, jams,
cookies, cobbler, ice cream,
candles and stuffed toys. The
Country Store has been newly
decorated and displays a
plaque in memory of Mary
Andrews who was a great
supporter of the WCA.
Float winners well...first
place, All Springs Animal
Clinic, $25; second was
Suwannee County 4-H Club,
$15; and third place went to
the Red Hats Society Suwan-
nee Valley Sweet Vixens, $10.
The winner of Power Coun-
try 102's Talent Contest and
$1,002 was Caitlyn Eadie.
Grand prize generator winner
was Pearl McEroy, and the
winner of the $1,000 Cow
Plop was Mike Johnson.
A BIG THANKS to all the
area SPONSORS who helped
make this year's Blueberry
Festival a HUGE SUCCESS.

Summer Dogs shut out Madison in double header


V.V'.


JOSH WIGELSWORTH MAKES A HUGE HOME RUN: Wigelsworth has never homered as a Bulldog so this was a first home run for him. It was
a three-run homer and ended the Madison game when Suwannee's run total equaled 10 runs in the fifth inning. - Photo: Janet Schrader-Seccafico


Not only did the Summer Dogs shut

out the Cowboys twice, 10-0,

both games were ended by a

home run and both games were

ended by the 10-run rule early.

Janet Schrader-Seccafico
Democrat Reporter
The Suwannee High Summer Dogs started the
season off with a bang Tuesday, June 1. The Dogs
shut Madison down. The Cowboys were unable to
score any runs in two games. Not only did the Sum-
mer Dogs shut out the Cowboys twice, 10-0, both
games were ended by a home run and both games
were ended by the 10-run rule early. Game one end-
ed in the fifth inning when Josh Wigelsworth hit a
three-run homer to make the score 10-0. It was also
Wigelsworth's first home run ever as a Bulldog.
Matt Yanossy hit two home runs in the double
header. His second homer ended game number two
in the sixth inning. The final score for that game
was 10-0 also.
Suwannee used a slew of pitchers. The Summer
Dog team is fat with varsity Bulldog ball players.
Six pitchers took turns on the mound, getting valu-
able experience and innings under their belts.
Ross Aretino pitched the first three innings in the
first game and took home the win. Billy Moran
started things for the Suwannee offense with a short
hit into the infield that he outran for a base hit.
Rheed Baldwin hit a double off the first pitch
putting Moran on third. Gabe Galloway singled
scoring Moran.
It was three up, three down for Aretino in the sec-
ond. Marc Radford was up first and singled into
center field. Michael Keene walked and Aretino
singled. Radford scored off Moran's base hit. After

Governor's All-Star


Rheed Baldwin has been
chosen a Governor's high
School All-Star for 2004-05.
This award recognizes Flori-
da students who exemplify
excellence in Florida public
schools.
"The Governor's High
School All-Stars are shining
examples of Florida's bright
future," Governor Bush
said.
Baldwin is not only a
scholar but an athlete. He
played football and baseball
in 2004-05 and is currently
playing baseball as part of
the Summer Dog baseball
team from Suwannee High.


The All-Star program is in
its sixth year and honors one
junior from each school dis-
trict in Florida. Criteria for
being chosen includes acad-
emic performance, .disci-
pline records, leadership,
extracurricular activities
and community service.
Baldwin was chosen by a
panel comprised of at least
one teacher, one administra-
tor, one parent, a community
member and two high school
seniors. They decide which
junior intheir district best
meets the criteria set by the
s ta te . ' '
"Governor Bush and I ap-


plaud these students for
their dedication," said Lt.
Governor Toni Jennings.
On April 1, Baldwin and
the other award winners met
with the Governor and the
Lt. Governor in Tallahassee
in the House Chamber. Later
they lunched at the Gover-
nor's Mansion, held a
round-table discussion and
visited the Capitol where
they participated in a mock
senate session.

"What's going to happen at
the virtual workshop is we're
going to give a presentation, so
everyone can learn about the
strategy. They'll be able to in-
teract with us through chat,
questions and answers and
some instant polling. Then
they'll be able to provide com-
ments about what they think
.about the strategy."
Florida's Wildlife Legacy
Initiative is a far-sighted ap-
proach to link conservation
plans to a distinct funding pro-
gram. Its aim is to avert future
declines of native wildlife, with
a goal of keeping common
species common. Public partic-


The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services has teamed up with
Wal-Mart and the Produce for
Better Health Foundation to
encourage children to eat
more fresh fruits and vegeta-
bles for a healthier lifestyle.
Families who visit Wal-Mart's
1,700 Supercenters and
Neighborhood Markets on
June 25 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
will find produce sections fea-
turing characters and themes
from the upcoming "Fantastic
Four" 'children's action
movie. The movie, which will
be released on July 8, is based
on the classic comic book
strip that focuses on astro-
nauts who have become super
heroes."These popular comic
book heroes will help capture
children's attention about the
importance of healthy eating,"
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
said. "Attracting children to


ipation is a crucial element in
developing this plan.
"It's important for everyone
to be involved in Florida's
wildlife initiative, because the
strategy is such a broad under-
taking that no one person,
group or governmental agency
can carry out all of it and make
it a success. It's our hope that
anyone who has an interest in
Florida's wildlife will come out
and help us build a blueprint for
conserving our natural re-
sources into the future," Eason
said.
Congress has challenged
each U. S. state and territory to
develop a comprehensive
wildlife conservation strategy
and to work together to create a


the grocery store produce sec-
tion and encouraging them to
sample fresh fruits and veg-
etables can help them discov-
er that healthy eating can be
fun, too." The Florida
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer -Services is
providing free samples of
fresh Florida watermelon, a
traditional summertime fa-
vorite, in 107 Florida Wal-
Mart Supercenter produce
sections during the June 25
event. The "Fresh from Flori-
da" logo will also be featured
on point-of-sale and display
materials promoting water-
melon and another Florida-
grown produce. The Pro-
duce for Better Health Foun-
dation's "5 A Day The Color
Way" encourages young peo-
ple to get their five daily serv-
ings of fresh fruits and vegeta-
bles. During the Wal-Mart
event, children will receive an

Some Drugs Increase the Risk of Sunburn
The summer months are upon us, and for many, vacations have been
planned. Usually, vacations come with outdoor activity and sunburn.
Protecting your skin from the sun is very important. Many people are not
aware that some drugs increase the risk of sunburn. In clinical terms, this
is called photosensitivity.
Let's do a quick rundown of the most common medications that cause
photosensitity: diuretics such as furosemide and hydrochlorothiazide;
acne medications such as tretinoin, other topical creams, and generally
anything that dries the skin; antibiotics - most commonly doxycycline or
any of that family, and SMX/TMP (Bactrim); antihistamines such as
diphenhydramine (Benadryl, also in Tylenol PM) and Claritin; antican-
cer drugs like methotrexate, 5-FU; diabetes agents such as glyburide and
glipizide; antiemetics like promethazine (Phenergan) or prochlor-perazine
(Compazine); typical antipsycholics such as haloperidol. There are other
medications that can 'cause photosensitivity, especially some similar to
those listed above. Take a look at your prescription bottle for a sun
sensitivity warning label. If you have questions your pharmacist is always
available. 172644-F


nationwide approach to
wildlife conservation. Florida's
Comprehensive Wildlife Strat-
egy is one of 56 being devel-
oped by every U. S. state and
territory. As a strong incentive
to get states to develop a plan,
Congress made it a requirement
for participating in the federal
State Wildlife Grants program.
Florida's Wildlife Legacy Ini-
tiative could lead to millions of
dollars of federal funding for
our state's wildlife and habitats.
Everyone interested' in at-
tending the online workshop
must pre-register before June
9. To get signed up, go to
MyFWC.com/wildlifelegacy
and follow the instructions to
register. .Complete information


kid-friendly recipes. Parents
will receive the "5 A Day The
Color Way" guide, which in--
troduces them to the benefits
of choosing a variety of
health-promoting fruits and
vegetables from each of the
five color groups, and pro-
vides other helpful informa-
tion including a serving size
guide. "Our goal is to edu-
cate families about the new
Dietary Guidelines for Ameri-
cans' recommendation to eat
more fruits and vegetables
than any other food group -
about half your plate," said

"It's our goal to have every-
one participate through the vir-
tual workshop, but for those
who can't make that we're go-
ing to have several other av-
enues available to receive their
comments. They can write us
directly. They can send us
e-mail comments. We'll also
have an open house in Tampa
for people to provide us .com-

If your child plays or played
Recreation Department sports in
Suwannee County, it's highly
likely they played on a team
supported by Suwannee Sal-
vage. The Lewis family owns
and operates Suwannee Salvage
and they have been supporting
the kids of Suwannee County
since the business started. Larry
Lewis is the front desk man for
his family business, and he said
he's seen grown men walk into
the front office at Suwannee
Salvage and recognize a team
photo of themselves on the wall
when they were little.
"We don't do it for the recog-
nition," Larry Lewis said. "We
do it for the kids."
Larry's father, Dan, started
Suwannee Salvage in 1974
along with his brother, Dan Jr.
Brad Lewis, the youngest broth-
er also helps run the business.
Larry said they have been spon-
soring teams for so long, he
can't remember what year they
started. Suwannee Salvage had
rec ball teams on the field back
before there were team photos,
back when Little League base-
ball was the only rec sport go-
ing.
"In the old days, they called
you on the phone, you sent a
check, and that was it," Larry
Lewis said.
The Suwannee Recreation
Department now honors the
sponsors with a commemora-
tive plaque with a team photo.
Suwannee Salvage's walls are
loaded with these plaques. They
have so many, they've had to
box up some and pack them
away.
Suwannee Salvage supports


all the Rec Department sports.
There is a Suwannee Salvage
football team, soccer teams,
softball teams and T-Ball teams.
They currently sponsor Saddles
and Spurs Riding Club, Suwan-
nee Quarterback Club,
Wrestling Boosters, FFA and
they always buy an ad in the
SHS yearbook.
"It's hard to say no to the
kids," Larry said. "There have
been some years when we just
couldn't afford it, but we're a
pretty soft touch when it comes
to kids. We aren't looking for
recognition."
But the recognition comes
anyway, and it doesn't hurt.
"It gets your name in with
young people," Larry -said.
"When you're here a long time,
it's important to have a good
name."
Budget Storage, also owned
by the Lewis family, supports
Rec Department sports teams as
well.
Larry Lewis has six kids of
his. own. All of them played
Suwannee, Recreation Depart-
ment sports. He still has two
girls playing softball aged seven
and 10. Brad Lewis, the
youngest Lewis brother, spon-
sors and coaches soccer.
Supporting Suwannee Recre-
ation Department sports: is a
family tradition at Suwannee
Salvage, and it's one they plan
to continue for a long time into
the future.
"We do it to help the kids."

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: Is a mouth guard useful for a child
playing sports?
A: A mouth guard can be an absolute
necessity, depending on the sport. For
heavy contact sports like football and
hockey, for instance, a mouth guard is
essential to protect the player's teeth and
mouth. Recreational activities like
skateboarding and mountain biking can
also pose the danger of a spill. The ADA
recommends that youngsters and adults
alike wear a mouth guard when engaging in
an activity that poses risk. A properly fitted
mouth guard can absorb some of the force
of a blow that might otherwise break teeth
and injure the jaw, lips, tongue or face. A
mouth guard can also help prevent
concussion. The three main types of mouth
guard are the custom-made, which is made
by a dentist or laboratory; a ready-made
type that can be bought at a sporting goods
store; and the type that a user can mold to
his or her teeth by letting it harden in the
mouth. Talk to your dentist about your
lifestyle, and that of your kids, and find out
whether a mouth guard-and what type-
might be right for you and your family.

Deadline nearing to apply for

2005-06 special-opportunity hunts


The deadline to apply for
2005-06 special-opportunity
hunts offered by the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is June 15.
Special-opportunity hunts
offer hunters vast areas, abun-
dant game, low hunter quotas
and excellent chances to bag
quality deer, hogs and released
quail on select wildlife man-


agement areas throughout
Florida..
To apply for these permits,
visit any license agent or tax
collector's office or submit an
application online at
MyFWC.com.
Demand for these hunts is
typically greater than the num-
ber of available slots, so a ran-
dom drawing is conducted to


select hunters. Hunters can im-
prove their chances of being
selected by submitting as many
non-refundable $5 applications
as they want. The cost of the
hunts for selected applicants
ranges from $50 to $175.
Visit MyFWC.com/hunting
for more information on how to
apply for special-opportunity
hunt permits.

Crist recently issued a fraud

a $100 fee - be submitted to
any outside entity including the

businesses are asked to submit
the minutes and a check made

Changes in

Medicare
From coverage for pre-
scription drugs to cancer
screening, Medicare has such
a wide array of benefits that
we can all use a little help
keeping up with new services
and changes to the program.
Changes in Medicare, a free
new package of publications
from the Centers for
Medicare & Medicaid Ser-
vices and the Federal Citizen
Information Center, gives
you a better.understanding of
new Medicare services such
as prescription drug plans
and preventive benefits.
Beginning this year,
Medicare covers three new
preventive benefits: a "Wel-
come to Medicare" physical
exam for people new to
Medicare, a cardiovascular
screening, and a diabetes
screening that can help you
find out your cholesterol and
blood sugar levels and then
make a plan to keep them in
check. Learn more about
when to schedule these ex-
ams and what other informa-
tion you need to bring to the
appointments with the free
Changes in Medicare pack-
age.
What other changes in
Medicare will affect you? In
2006, prescription drug plans
will replace Medicare-ap-
proved drug discount cards
which will be phased out by
May 15 of that year. The new
plans will provide varying
levels of coverage for your
prescription drugs. If you
join, you'll pay a monthly
premium and -a share of the
cost of your prescriptions.

Joey Logano turns 15... now it's time to make history


Youngster gets big birthday present - clearance to make his Pro Cup debut


Joey Logano is getting
used to celebrating his
birthdays in grand style.
The teenaged race car dri-
ver, with talent that stretch-
es far beyond his years, has
been busy testing in antici-
pation of his USAR Hooters
Pro Cup Series debut. Se-
ries officials would not
clear the young driver to
enter a race until he reached
the age of 15.
Logano turned 15 on
Tuesday, so that means
he'll make Pro Cup history
this weekend as the
youngest driver ever to
compete in the series when
he wheels his #51 Ford


around Jennerstown Speed-
way (PA). Logano couldn't
be happier about his birth-
day present.
"Man, I'm ready to go
racing," Logano said. "I've
been waiting for awhile and
it's time to go racing."
This is not the first time
that Logano has had to wait
before racing a particular
series. Just last season, he
had to miss' the early-sea-
son events of the ASA Na-
tional Tour because that se-
ries would not allow him to
compete before his last
birthday.
"It was like this last year,
because they made me wait


until I was 14 to race ASA
and we only got to do half
the season. Now I have to
be 15 to run Hooters Pro
Cup. So. it's like this every
year it seems. I should be
used to it by now."
To prepare for his Pro
Cup debut, Logano and his
#51 Logano Motorsports
team attempted to test at the
track earlier this week.
However, Mother Nature
had something else in mind.
"We went up there and it
started raining, so we only
got about 12 laps in. It was
a waste of time basically
and a long ride for noth-
ing."


Well, almost. nothing.
Logano did get a quick feel
for his car.
"We learned a little bit.
We were able to take six or
seven hard laps before it
started raining heavy. I
think that the car was pretty
good. We aren't really sure
what kind of time we should
be running there with that
car, but it was handling
good, though, so it should
be alright."
Jennerstown is not a new
track for Logano. He com-
peted there in an ASA race
last August and made it to
the finish in that event on a.
night when many of the se-


ries veterans got caught up
in wrecks. Although the two
cars are completely different
from each other, Logano
thinks that having laps at the
track is to his advantage.
"It helps for sure. Run-
ning laps at any track in any
car really helps. Being at a
track where we ran last year
in the ASA car helps. I
know the groove and what
will happen in the longer
runs."
Although just getting ex-
perience would make for a
successful weekend, the
racer in Logano has set his
goal for Jennerstown just a
little bit higher.


"I put a lot of pressure on
myself," said Logano. "I'm
probably the worst on my-
self out of everyone actual-
ly. I'm hoping for at least a
top-10 finish. I think that
we should do pretty well at
Jennerstown."
The Hooters Pro Cup Se-
ries Naturally Fresh 250 is
set for Saturday night, May
28th, at 7:00pm.

Joey Logano, please con-
tact Jeremy Troiano at

It was during the early 60s
that 'Lynn began to sing lo-
cally in the Tacoma, Wash.
area. It was during one of the
performances that she was
spotted by Norm Burley, who
was so impressed he founded
Zero Records just to record
her. With a recording of "I'm
a Honky Tonk Girl" under
her belt, she and. her husband

*CONSUMER ALERT*

Free annual

credit reports

and credit repair
Your credit record can deter-
mine a lot about your financial
future from how much credit
you get to whether you are of-
fered a job. A new law starting
June 1 lets consumers get free
annual credit reports.
Take advantage of the free
annual credit reports now
available to Florida consumers
that can be requested fiom each
of the three major credit report-
ing services under the federal
Fair and Accurate Credit Trans-
actions Act. Once each year
Floridians get to review their
credit reports at no charge due
to this change in the law..
Credit reports contain nu-
merous types of information-
details about debt such as mort-
gages, consumer loans, credit
cards and bankruptcies. Re-
questing a report will give the
consumer the opportunity to
find any inaccuracies and cor-
rect them. Mortgage lenders
and credit card issuers rely on
credit reports to make credit

tention will be directed to
drivers who would violate
the driver license laws of
Florida. The Patrol has found
these checkpoints to be an ef-
fective means of enforcing
the equipment and driver's
license laws of Florida while
ensuring the protection of all
motorists.

decisions and to assign interest
rates. Now insurance compa-
nies and potential employers
are using the reports to decide
whether to issue insurance or
make job offers.
Make it a habit to check
your credit reports on a fre-
quent basis and address any
discrepancies or errors that
may exist. Reviewing and
managing your credit is im-
portant for two reasons. First,
if someone has stolen your
identity you will know be-
cause you will see inquiries
and new debt on the report that
you didn't initiate. Second, be-
cause many creditors use cred-
it reports to rate your credit-
worthiness and establish an in-
terest rate, if yours is correct
you may save money on loans
and other types of credit.
If you find discrepancies in
your report, keep these tips in
mind when trying to correct
information in your credit re-
port:
* It is common to receive
mail, telemarketing pitches


and e-mail from credit repair
businesses offering to help up-
grade credit ratings, remove
bad credit or even acquire a
new Social Security number.
These promises are aimed at
getting more money from
those of us who can least af-
ford'it - people already in fi-
nancial trouble.
* Be cautious of companies
that want you to pay for credit
repair services in advance or
that recommend against con-
tacting a credit bureau directly.
* Be wary of a company that
suggests you try to invent a
"new" credit report by apply-
ing for an employer identifica-
tion number to use instead of
your Social Security number.
* Understand that there are
possible crimes related to
credit repair. For example,
you can be charged and pros-
ecuted for mail or wire fraud
if you use the mail or tele-
phone to apply for credit and
provide false information., It
is a federal crime to make
false statements 6n a loan or
credit application, to misrep-
resent your Social Security

How to find the

right gym for you


I i I









Find a gym that's right for you. Consider a few factors before signing up for a
membership.


fitness club


The time has come. You hate how you look in your clothes, don't want to be out of
breath every time you walk up the stairs and are tired of feeling out of shape. You've
decided to take the plunge and join a gym. But you shouldn't join the first one you
see. With so many options available, you need to find one that meets your needs and
lifestyle. Here are some tips to help you make the right choice.
* How busy is it? Tour the club at the time you'd workout to see how crowded it is.
Are clients waiting a long time to use equipment? Are the classes so full you'll barely
be able to move about? Is the locker room packed?
* Is it clean and well-maintained? Bathrooms, showers, pools, saunas and the
equipment should be cleaned frequently. Look at the cleanliness of the locker rooms
and the condition of the machines. You want to ensure that hygiene and maintenance
are the gym's top priorities.
* How is the staff? The gym's staff should be interested in your needs and goals as a
customer. They should be well-trained and knowledgeable in personal training and
the classes that they teach. *: . . ' * :
* What are the environment and equipment like? You want a gym with an
environment that you feel comfortable in'and that motivates you. Look at the
clientele to see if they are hardcore gym enthusiasts or a bit more laid-back in their
workout regimens. Also note the equipment
and how modern it is. Ask how often
machines are upgraded. t THE MEMBERSHIP CONTRACT

Dear Classified Guys,
My wife and I are about to move and
sell our house. But before we do, we
wanted to give the walls a fresh coat
of paint to make the inside of the
house look new to prospective buy-
ers. The problem is that my wife and
I disagree on colors. I'm of the mind-
set that everything should be painted
white. It matches everything!
However, my wife thinks that white is
for hospitals. She's been �,
watching all the home _.r
improvement shows and -'-
wants to use some fancy
colors. Any ideas on what
would look the best to .
prospective buyers?
Cash: If there's one thing we've
learned over the years, it's to never get
involved in a disagreement between a
husband and wife. Unless, of course,
you plan on siding with the woman!
Carry: Before you decide on what
colors to choose, take a look to see if
your house really needs painting.
Although a fresh coat can make the
worst walls look like new, you may only
need to give them a quick washing.
Cash: Painting rooms like the kitchen
or bathroom can take a lot of effort. It
may be to your benefit to focus on areas


Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


02005 The Classified Guys�


of the house that have seen a lot of wear
and tear like the hallways or living room.
Carry: Other rooms may just need a
quick touch up on trim or doorways to
give them a newer look.
Cash: As for colors, the choices are
very subjective. Walk into any paint
store today and you'll find an unlimited
amount of colors.
Carry: And choosing white will not be
easier. Just wait until you see how many
shades of white are available.
Cash: Before you pick out a new
color, whether its white or something
"fancy", decide if the existing room color
is acceptable. It may be easier to use the


same color and avoid multiple coats to
cover the old color.
Carry: If you plan on showing the
house while you still live there, then
choose colors that go with your current
decor. There's no benefit in using accent
colors that clash with your furniture.
Cash: Since you do plan on moving,
it may not be the time to get creative.
Many buyers tend to have their own style
in mind. It's possible to give your house
a good presentation with almost any
color.
Carry: Besides, the less painting you
have to do, the more time you'll have to
watch home improvement shows.


Second Coat
The old saying goes, "If it doesn't
move, paint it." It seems more of us are
following that advice everyday.
Consumers are buying paint by the gal-
lons. In fact, the National Paint and
Coverings Association estimates
Americans spent more than 6 billion dol-
lars on paint for architecture such as
houses and walls. With that much paint,
everyone could use a few more friends to
help.

Get the Lead Out
Although the hottest selling colors
keep changing, paint has been around for
centuries. The Romans created it using a
lead base and added ingredients like wine
or vinegar. Later discoveries used a
white lead paste and added ingredients
like linseed oil, turpentine or colored pig-
ments. Today all those types of paint are
banned due to the toxic ingredients. In
fact, paints sold in the US must contain
less than 0.6% lead by volume, which
means you can add that second coat
without worrying.

Finishing Touches
When I took on the project of reno-
vating a few rooms in our house, I
quickly realized it was a big job.
I spent an entire month of evenings
and weekends installing new hard-
wood floors to make sure they were
just right. But when it came to paint-
ing, I decided to hire a high school
neighbor to help me out.
The morning he showed up I told
him to go paint the entire bedroom
and I'll work on the living room.
About an hour later, he came back and
told me he was all done. "That's
great," I said. "Let me go check it
out."
To my dismay he replied, "Just be
careful. The floor paint is still wet!"
(Thanks to Jay S.)

There's a doctor out there for
just about any kind of ailment.
Doctors who specialize in
throats. Doctors who specialize
in stomachs. Doctors who spe-
cialize in hearts. The list goes on
and on. You see these doctors
because you aren't feeling right
and need expertise in your par-
ticular area of concern.
But what do you do when you
just have "pain?" Are there doc-
tors for that? In fact, there are.
Pain specialists' who often work
at pain centers or pain clinics,
are experts in understanding and
managing the condition of pain.
There is no single preferred
approach to dealing with pain.
Some clinics may focus on one
type of treatment, such as a
steroid injection, while others
may combine treatment options
such as physical rehab or med-
ication management. And, a spe-
cialist or program may focus on
a specific type of pain like a
backache or headache, or offer
more comprehensive services.
If you don't know what is
causing your pain, you need to
get a diagnosis. The right diag-
nosis will help you get the most
effective treatment, and you can
make sure your pain isn't being
caused by an infection or some-
thing else. Visit your primary-
care physician, who can exam-
ine you and refer you to a spe-
cialist or pain center (note that
many pain programs or special-
ists require a referral from your
physicians). Other referral
sources include members of
your local pain support group,

Don't put up with agony! Pain
specialists can help you deal
with a variety of types of pain.

your local hospital, your state
medical board, your health in-
surance carrier or organizations
like the American Pain Society,
the American Academy of Pain
Medicine, the American Pain
Foundation, and the American
Academy of Pain Management.
Once you get a list of special-
ists or programs, do your home-
work. Visit the clinic or special-
ist and ask for a consultation.
Find out what treatments are ad-
vocated (surgery or long-term
drug use for example), if the pro-
gram and staff are certified, what
their hospital affiliation is, what
their success rate is, if followup
care is provided, and what the
costs are. The specialist should
put you at ease - he should en-
courage you to ask questions, be
a good listener, and genuinely
want to help you.
Hopefully, the process of find-
ing a pain management special-
ist is now ... a little less painful.

Delicious Summer


On the islands of Hawaii, its
translation is "mamaka kaiao."
On the mainland, it's a summer
staple for any picnic, afternoon
outing or family gathering. In
Hawaii, it's often served with
fresh mahi mahi or kalua pork.
On the mainland, it's often or-
dered with ham and cheese or
peanut butter and jelly. The item
in question, of course, is the
sandwich.
Why the references to
Hawaii? Once dubbed "The
Sandwich Islands" by early
British explorers paying
homage to The Earl of Sand-
wich -- the English lord for
whom the dish is named --
Hawaii holds a special place in
its history for this kitchen clas-
sic.
Most mainland historians and
foodies alike won't be sandwich
sampling this summer from
beachfront bungalows on the
"Sandwich" isles, but King's
Hawaiian has created a few easy
and tasty summer sandwich tips
and recipes to bring some exotic


flavors into your kitchen, sea-
sonal party or dinner table.
The following are some tips
for savvy sandwich creation:
* Avoid S.S.S (soggy sand-
wich syndrome). If you're
preparing sandwiches well
ahead of time, consider placing
a slice of cheese or bed of fresh
baby spinach or lettuce on the
bottom slice of your bread (be-
fore the meats and toppings).
The cheese and greens will ab-
sorb the moisture from your oth-
er sandwich elements and pre-
vent the bread from getting
mushy.
* Make a Must-Go. While a
simple concept, sandwiches
lend themselves to great culi-
nary creativity with leftovers.
Meatloaf, turkey meat and pork
roast are among many entree'
items that work well as a base
ingredient for tasty summer
sandwiches.
* Go Continental! Give your
sandwiches some international
flair with special spreads. Con-
sider adding sesame oil or black


sandwich


bean sauce for Asian tastes. To
add a Mediterranean element,
consider mixing capers with
your mayonnaise. And to bring
the perfect touch of aloha to
your sandwich-loving palates,
consider pineapple rings as a
topping.
* Get Saucy. If your sandwich
fillings are especially saucy (e.g.
barbeque chicken, kalua pork),
consider toasting the bread.
Hint: King's Hawaiian bread is
excellent for heavy sandwiches
when toasted. Lightly brush
both sides of the King's Hawai-
ian bread and briefly place it on
a grill or skillet until golden
brown for an interesting addition
to your sandwiches.
The following sandwich
recipes offer quick dining solu-
tions that will make some exotic
additions to you summer meals:
King's Hawaiian Grilled
Flank Steak Sandwich with
Blue Cheese Crumbles
4 (1 inch thick) center slices
