State crime is lowest in 34


Governor Jeb Bush, Attorney
General Charlie Crist and Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
Commissioner Guy Tunnell have
released the state's 2004 Annual
Uniform Crime Report and an-
nounced Florida's index saying
crime has reached a 34-year low,
Suwannee County's crime rate ac-
tually went up.
The state index crime rate


dropped by 6.0 percent in 2004,
compared to 2003.
In Suwannee County, crime was
up with no murders, 19 forcible sex
offenses, 17 robberies, 153 aggra-
vated assaults, 405 burglaries, 596
larcenies, 81 motor vehicle thefts,
with a total crime index of 1,271.
According to the FDLE statistics,
the 2004 crime rates is 3.7 percent
higher than in 2003.


"Florida has been a national
leader in criminal law reforms,"
said Governor Bush. "The continu-
al decrease in our crime rate illus-
trates the effectiveness of the
state's tough stance on crime."
The number of reported violent
crimes in the state fell 0.4 percent
in 2004, while the volume of non-
violent crimes dropped 4.0 percent
from last year. Compared to 2003,


the rate of violent crime (murder,
forcible sex offenses, robbery, and
aggravated assault), calculated as
the number of crimes per 100,000
residents, decreased by 3.0 percent,
while the rate of non-violent crime
(burglary, larceny and motor vehi-
cle theft) decreased by 6.5 percent.
"The continuing decreases in vi-
olent crime, including domestic vi-
olence, is good news for the citi-


TS


years
zens of our state," said Attorney
General Crist. "The efforts of law
enforcement and the passage of
tougher laws continue to pay divi-
dends in public safety. Florida has
made real progress in our fight
against crime, and there is always
room for improvement."
The rate of reported index crime,

The Vestpakz comes in
four sizes, 14 colors, water-
resistant and durable.
Wooley developed the
Vestpakz as a science project
for sixth grade, in 1999 at
the tender age of 11.
"I just wanted to get a
good grade," Wooley re-
members.
Wooley approached
Suwannee Mlddle School
teacher Melissa Brinson's
challenging classroom as-
signment with great enthusi-
asm.
"Why not try to solve an
everyday problem?" Wooley
thought. "Every day stu-
dents have to lug around 40
poufids of books, without a
locker, plus their personal
gear. It wears on your back!"
Wooley turned her science
project into an award win-
ning product.
At the age of 15, Wooley


found a manufacturer,
patented her product and be-
gan to enter invention com-
petitions.
In October, 2003, Wooley
made a television appear-
ance on the Oprah Winfrey
Show's "Million Dollar Idea
Challenge."
Wooley continues to mar-
ket and sell her VestPakz
product through mail order
and the internet.
"I am so proud of her!"
said Wooley's mom, Cheryl.
After graduating last
month, Wooley now plans to
attend Lake City Community
College and is undecided on
a major.
This year marks the fifth
anniversary of the Girls Go-
ing Places� Scholarship

measures in hiring workers
that that will give the board
assurance no criminal will be
have access to the students,
particularly at Branford
where an elementary school
already exists. Superintendent
Walter Boatright said he re-
cently attended a superinten-
dents' meeting in Tampa de-
voted to the finger printing is-
sue. Fingerprinting and pic-
ture identification are just
some of the additional safe
guards initiated recently by
FEMA to maintain the safety
of school children.
Wood assured board mem-
bers his company is very aware
of state laws to protect school
children and would be more
than happy to have his contrac-
tors, subcontractors and work-
ers fingerprinted, wear identi-
f� iig stickers on hard hats,
have FDLE background
checks, and meet whatever
guidelines outlined and ad-


dressed in the general contract.
"Occasionally it is neces-
sary for a worker to cross the
line to hook up lines, pipes
and such, but they would be
accompanied by arn onsite PPI
employee." Wood assured the
board.
PPI Construction Manage-
ment's construction examples
include: the Alachua County
Courthouse, University of
Florida Ben Hill Griffin Sta-
dium Expansion and the Uni-
versity of Florida Basketball
Practice Facility.
Starting July 5, PPI will be-
gin the process of advertising
for bids and pre-qualifying
contractors. Final bids will be
accepted until July 26. Once a
(GMP) Guaranteed Maxi-
mum Price contract is accept-
ed, construction is expected to
begin Aug. 16, 2005 and be
complete by Aug. 2, 2006.

PAVEMENT SAGS, UNDERGROUND UTILITY AT FAULT: About 9 p.m. Sunday, June 26, workers
were called out to repair US 90 (Howard Street) across from Millennium Park. An underground wa-
ter leak caused the pavement on US 90 to sag. Workers are busy in this picture fixing the problem
while police re-route traffic. Mayor Sonny Nobles was on hand early and throughout the repair. He
told one bystander he likes to be called whenever there is a situation like this so he can be informed
and involved in helping early. - Photo: Mic Twain

Certain drugs may help with bedwetting
Bedwetting (nocturnal enuresis) is the accidental and repeated night-
time urination by a sleeping child who is old enough to be expected to
awake on their own. Bedwetting is a common problem that affects an
estimated 5 to 7 million older children in the U.S. Up through'the age of
5, about 20% of children will experience this problem. As children get
older, the problem gradually disappears. However some believe as many
as 3% of 12-year olds still have the problem.
What can a parent do? If bladder or kidney infections, diabetes, or
emotional problems are causing bedwetting to occur, then the physician
should address these causes. Alarms have been used effectively to wake
the child creating a sense of awareness. Some medications can be help-
ful. As some children have low amounts of antidiuretic hormone, an
unusually high amount of urine can be produced at night. Desmopressin
, I i 'j raises the hormone levels to normal, but may be expensive. It is
very effective, as is imipmi minue ( . .. i i i'ii. .- - ' l", iighiern-

Confiscating property


Last week's U.S. Supreme Court 5-4
ruling in Kelo v. New London helps ex-
plain the socialist attack on President
Bush's nominees to the federal bench.
First, let's look at the case.
The city government of New Lon-
don, Conn., has run upon hard times,
with residents leaving and its tax base
eroding. Private developers offered to
build a riverfront hotel, private offices
and a health club in the Fort Trumbull
neighborhood. But there was a bit of a
problem. Owners of 15 homes in the
stable middle-class Fort Trumbull
neighborhood refused the city's offer to
buy their homes, but no sweat. The city
turned over its power of eminent do-
main - its ability to take private prop-
erty for public use - to the New Lon-
don Development Corporation, a pri-
vate body, to take the entire neighbor-
hood for private development. The city,
condemned the homeowners' proper-
ties. The homeowners sued and lost in
the state court, and last week they lost
in the U.S. Supreme Court.
The framers of our Constitution gave
us the Fifth Amendment in order to
protect us from government property
confiscation. The Amendment reads in
part: "[N]or shall private property be
taken for public use, without just com-
pensation." Which one of those 12
words is difficult to understand? The
framers recognized there might be a
need for government to acquire private
property to build a road, bridge, dam or
fort. That is a clear public use that re-
quires just compensation, but is taking
one person's private property to make it
available for another's private use a

public purpose? Justice John Paul
Stevens says yes, arguing, "Promoting
economic development is a traditional
and long-accepted function of govern-
ment."
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor dissent-
ed, saying, "Under the banner of eco-
nomic development, all private property
is now vulnerable to being taken and
transferred to another private owner, so
long as it might be given to an owner
who will use it in a way that the legisla-
ture deems more beneficial to the pub-
lic." She added that "the words 'for pub-
lic use' do not realistically exclude any
takings, and thus do not exert any con-
straint on the eminent domain power." In
other words, state and local officials can
now take your home for another private
person to use so long as they can manu-
facture an argument that the latter use is
more beneficial to the public.
Let's look at a few examples of how
this might play out. You and your
neighbor have two-acre lots. Your com-
bined property tax is $10,000. A nurs-
ing home proprietor tells city officials
that if they condemn your property and
sell it to him to build a nursing home,
the city would get $30,000 in property
taxes. According to last week's U.S.


COMMENTARY

SCHOOL CHOICE:

The Civil Rights Issue of the 21st Century


By Clark Neily
On June 7, the Florida, Supreme.
Court heard arguments in a'case that
could decide whether Florida continues
to lead the nation in true education re-
form or joins the ranks of states where
"reform" means business as usual.
The question the justices were asked
to decide is whether Florida's constitu-
tion prohibits the state from giving
scholarships to parents whose children
are stuck in failing public schools so
they can transfer those kids to private
schools of their choice.
Opponents claim the program results
in impermissible "aid" to religion be-
cause it allows scholarship recipients to
send their children to religious as well
as non religious private schools.
A major problem with that argument,
however - and one school choice op-
ponents have steadfastly refused to
squarely address -is what implica-
tions that argument has for Florida's
three dozen other social and education-
al aid programs that, just like Opportu-
nity Scholarships, allow participants to
freely choose among religious and non
religious providers.
On the education side alone, more
than 200,000 Floridians receive pub-
licly funded scholarships through a va-
riety of state aid programs, all of which
permit scholarship recipients to attend
religious schools if they choose. This
includes more than 100,000 college
students using Bright Futures and other
higher education scholarships, nearly
15,000 K-12 students attending private
schools through the McKay Program
for Students with Disabilities, and
12,000 K-12 students in the Corporate
Tax Credit program.
Moreover, starting this fall, any-


where from 90,000 to 150,000 pre-K
students are expected to .enroll in the
new universal pre-kindergarten pro-
gram, and, like Opportunity Scholar-
ship recipients, they will, enjoy a full
range of religious and non religious op-
tions.
Besides educational aid, many state
and local agencies contract with orga-
nizations such as the Salvation Army to
provide a wide range of services in-
cluding prison counseling services,
drug rehabilitation, and aid to the
homeless. Likewise, religious hospi-
tals receive public money through the
Medicaid program. Does that count as
"aid" to the churches that run those
hospitals? Fortunately, the answer to
that question is no.
Florida has a long history of neutral-
ity when it comes to allowing religious
organizations to participate in all man-
ner of social and educational aid pro-
grams.. Why doesn't it count as aid to
religion when a Bright Futures scholar-
ship recipient decides to attend a school
like Hobe Sound Bible College or
Florida Christian College? It's because
the "aid" is to the student, not the par-
ticular school he or she happens to at-
tend. Same thing with Medicaid; even
though state money ends up in going to
a religious institution, the aid is to the
patient who chooses that hospital, not
the hospital itself or the church that
runs the hospital.
The same is true of Opportunity
Scholarships. When the state of Florida
gives parents an educational lifeline -
when it gives them, for the first time in
their lives, a choice of where to send
their children to school - that is aid to
those parents and their children. It is
not aid to whatever schools they hap-


pen to choose.
School choice is the civil rights issue
of the 21st Century. Nothing l:inre
starkly divides the haves and the have-
nots in this country than the question of
who has the ability to ensure educa-
tional excellence for their children by
choosing where they go to school, and
who must simply take whatever their
local public schools have to offer, no
matter how clearly inadequate.
Florida is on the right side of that de-
bate and the right side of history. While
many states promise all students a high
quality public education, only Florida
delivers by saying to parents, "If we
can't get the job done, we'll give you a
scholarship so you can find someone
who will."
Now that is accountability.
The Opportunity Scholarship pro-
gram is a.true education reform that
has already enriched the lives and fu-
ture prospects of hundreds of chil-
dren. And, as verified by a new Har-
vard study, it is also a means of inject-
ing into education a little healthy com-
petition - -something from which
public schools have been all but im-
mune until now.
As the Harvard study notes, competi-
tion is even motivating the public
schools to improve. Nothing in the
state constitution forbids the state from
continuing this vital reform. The par-
ents and children of Florida deserve
nothing less.

Institute for Justice, is an adjunct
scholar with the James Madison Insti-
tute, a Tallahassee-based policy center
Mr. Neily represents Opportunity
Scholarships in the case before the
Florida Supreme Court.


LETTER TO THE EDITOR


Dear Editor:
The big brown eyes looked up at
me with a pleading kind of stare.
Only three or four months old and it
seems so unfair. But I knew the day
was coming when it would be true,
the needle would be injected and his
life would be through. "Little guy I
wish I'd left you out there in the
woods. But now I'm forced to take
you where nobody should. Your tail
was mostly hairless and my, the
fleas you had. Why did you have to
look at me with eyes that were so
red? I took you home thinking,
maybe, I could find you a home. But


no one seems to want you, you're
still all alone. I know your days are
numbered like so many other ones.
I've already called the shelter,
they're already full. So little pup I'll
take you and give you one last bone,
but what I really wish for you is just
a happy home."
Found at Charles Springs, June 3,
2005-three stray dogs. Found at
Charles Springs, June 15, 2005-two
mother cats with seven kittens.
These are only a few of the many
that are left homeless. Please take
the time to spay or neuter your pet.
This article is not intended to criti-


cize animal control. They have a job
and from all I've seen, they do their
best to help place homeless pets be-
fore euthanizing them. If there is
someone you know who wants a pet,
I urge you to visit animal control.
They are located off US 129 just be-
fore the county land fill or call 386-
208-0072. If the county could se-
cure a grant or some funding was
made available, they could possibly
make available a spay and neuter
clinic. I hope our county officials
will keep this issue in the forefront
with all the other growth planning.

Supreme Court ruling, this plan would
be construed as beneficial to the public,
and you'd have no recourse. Similarly,
an environmental group might descend
on public officials to condemn your
land and transfer it to the group for a
wildlife preserve. Again, a contrived
public benefit for which you'd have no
recourse.
The Court's decision helps explain
the vicious attacks on any judicial nom-
inees who might use framer-intent to
interpret the U.S. Constitution. Ameri-
ca's socialists want more control over
our lives, property and our pocket-
books. They cannot always get their
way in the legislature, and the courts
represent their only chance. There is
nothing complex about those 12 words
the framers wrote to protect us from
governmental property confiscation.
You need a magician to reach the con-
clusion reached by the Court's majori-
ty. I think the socialist attack on judicial
nominees who'd use framer-intent in
their interpretation of the Constitution
might also explain their attack on our
Second Amendment "right of the peo-
ple to keep and bear Arms." Why? Be-
cause when they come to take our prop-
erty, they don't want to risk buckshot in
their butts.

I'm a few pounds lighter
(Yea!), feeling like I can do
anything now that I've accom-
plished the move, but I ab-
solutely do not want to ever
move again! I'm about dead!
Not to mention those who
helped with the move. I can
never thank Dwight Law and
his people enough, nor my son
Randy, daughters Kathy and
Sherry, granddaughter Shelly
and grandson CJ enough for all
they did. Now, if I can just find
somewhere to put all that stuff
in those boxes that have the en-
tire 'floor covered at the new
house. I dream of the yard I will
create in the coming years and
am overwhelmed over the dif-
ference in being 13 miles from
town and now it's just two
miles! It's something that
makes me very happy to be in
town in just a couple of minutes
after the 15 to 20 minute trip all
these 27 years.
Our sympathies go out to all
those local families -who have
lost loved ones in the past sev-
eral weeks, particularly the
Starling, Davis and Allen fami-
lies. Our prayers are with you.
If you haven't noticed, US 90
in front of the Democrat is
closed this week. Those huge
pipes they are putting under-
neath the road will elevate the
historical flooding in this end of
town and there's nobody happi-
er than the people who work in
this section of town, not to men-
tion those who live here also. It
will be great NOT to have pho-
tos of people wading in water to
unstop water flow sites and
NOT to watch drivers speed
through the flooded streets as
they ruin adjacent businesses.
My dear, longtime friend
Mary Alice Dedge, formerly of
Perry,but now of Cocoa, whose
son, Wilton, spent 22 years in
prison for a crime he did not
commit and was exonerated by
DNA testing last August, has
never lost her zeal for life and
laughter. She sent the following
to me this week. Consider the
words as you remember that
she and her husband visited
their sofi every month for 22
years in whatever prison he was
being held in the state at that
time and spent every dime of
her husband's retirement to


prove Wilton Dedge's inno-
cence.
To my sisters:
A young wife sat on a sofa
on a hot humid day, drinking
iced tea and visiting with her
mother. As they talked about
life, about marriage, about the
responsibilities of life and the
obligations of adulthood, the
mother clinked the ice cubes in
her glass thoughtfully and
turned a clear, sober glance
upon her daughter. "Don't for-
get your sisters," she advised,
swirling the tea leaves to the
bottom of her glass.
"They'll be more important
as you get older. No matter
how much you love your hus-
band, no matter how much you
love the children you may
have, you are still going to
need sisters. Remember to go
places with them now and
then; do things with them. And
remember that "sisters also
means your girlfriends, your
daughters, and other women
relatives too. You'll need other

When you have to walk that
lonesome valley, sisters will be
there for praying for you,
pulling for you, intervening on
your behalf, and waiting with
open arms at the valley's end.


Sometimes, they will even
break the rules and walk beside
you. Or come in and carry you
out. Our sisters bless my
lives! The world wouldn't be
the same without them and nei-
ther would we. When we be-


gan this adventure called wom-
anhood, we had no idea of the
incredible joys or sorrows that
lay ahead. Nor did we know
how much we would need
women who help make our
lives work.


women. Women always do."
What a funny piece of ad-
vice!' the young woman
thought. 'Haven't I just gotten
married? Haven't I just joined
the couple-world? I'm now a
married woman, for goodness
sake! A grownup. Surely my
husband and the family we may
start will be all I need to make
my life worthwhile!"
But, she listened to her moth-
er. She kept contact with her
sisters and made more women
friends each year. As the years
tumbled by, one after another,
she gradually came to under-
stand that her mom really knew
what she was talking about. As
time and nature work their
changes and their mysteries
upon a woman, Sisters are the
mainstays of her life. After
more than 50 years of living in
this world, here is what I've
learned:
* Time passes.
* Life happens.
* Distance separates.
* Children grow up.
* Love waxes and wanes.
* Hearts break.
* Careers end.
* Jobs come and go.
* Parents die.
* Colleagues forget favors.
* Men don't always call
when they say they will.
BUT sisters' are there, no
matter how much time and how
many miles are between you.
A sister is never farther away


On June 29, from 9-3 p.m.,
at The Dixie Grill and Steer
Room, an expected 50-75
prominent men and women
will be arrested by the Muscu-
lar Dystrophy Association and
charged with having a big
heart for JerryDs Kids.
These men and woman, also
known as jailbirds, will be as-
signed various times through-
out the day to be apprehended.
Once the officer, a.k.a. the dri-
ver, arrives at the jailbirds
pick-up location, they are then
taken to The Dixie Grill and
Steer Room to be booked and
to receive their sentence. Their
mission is simple: to call their
business associates and friends
and let them know they have
been arrested by MDA and


they need their help to raise
bail.
This particular lock-up
raised $6,000 in 2002. This

revealed crime volume, the
actual number of reported
crimes, decreased 3.5 per-

"Although we are experi-

in 34 years, we cannot let
down our guard. Law en-

24 hours a day, seven 'days a

Florida, we must continue to

In 1999, Governor Bush
signed the "10-20-LIFE"
crime bill into law, requiring a
minimum 10-year sentence for
crimes committed with a gun,
a 20-year sentence for firing a
gun during the commission of
a crime and 25 years to life if
the bullet fired causes death or
injury. Since 1998, the vol-
ume of crimes committed with
guns has decreased 18.6 per-
cent, while the rate of gun
crime has gone down 30.3 per-
cent in that same period.
The number of reported do-
mestic violence offenses de-
creased 0.8 percent, and ar-
rests for these crimes de-
creased 1.5 percent from last
year. Spouses and cohabitants
continue to account for more
than half the victims of domes-
tic violence crimes. Domestic
violence offenses accounted
for 26.3 percent of comparably
reported violent crimes.
Slightly less than one-fifth
(19.5 percent) of all murders
were domestic violence-relat-
ed incidents.
This year's report includes
data submitted by 408 local,
county and state law enforce-
ment agencies, including all
67 sheriffs' offices.

HENDON FAMILY BOOK: Suwannee Valley Genealogical Society member James Hendon conducts

copy of the book is available for others to look at and also to help with their research.

The Suwannee Valley Ge-
nealogical Society (SVGS)


knows how hard it is to re-
search oneDs family. Members
have been helping people re-
search and trace their family
S lines since 1992. Better known
as SVGS, the organization is
proud to announce over 600
family books have been donat-
ed to its library. SVGS has a
staff of volunteers ready to help
anyone who comes in quest for
researching their family lines.
Resources on hand are main-
ly for the Suwannee Valley
area, but the SVGS library does
have books, quarterlies and
other materials for different ar-
eas of Florida, plus other states.
SVGS has access to paid pro-
grams that are on the Internet to
help in researching family
trees. The orL.aniz.ilion has
been tr� ing tlo enlarge "its


African-American and Native
American section in order to
help these groups of people in
their research. The SVGS is
proud to say it has several ac-
tive members locally and from
out of state who have had suc-
cess in tracing their family her-
itage. This can be a difficult
task with both African-Ameri-
cans and Native Americans due
to the poor records that have
been kept in the past on these
groups. So much of their her-
itage has been lost unless their
family had a way of keeping up
with this other than word of
mouth.
SVGS member James Hen-
don has been researching his
family heritage and recently
completed his family book.
SVGS is proud to announce
that Hendon recently turned in
his family book; It has been


copied and is on the shelves for
others to look at and also to
help them with their research.
SVGS is a non-profit organi-
zation operating strictly from
membership dues, donations
and books offered for sale. It
charges a small fee for copies
and research time on the com-
puter. Business hours are every
Tuesday and Thursday from 9
a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m.,
closed for lunch from noon to 1
p.m. Members meet once a
month at 7 p.m. on the first
Thursday. The president of
SVGS is Jinnie Hancock.
You are invited to stop by
and visit and let members help
you with your search for your
family heritage. The office is
located at 224 Wilbur Street,
SW, near Paul Langford Stadi-
um. For more information, call

Four Bu


dogs make All-State


Ryan Stovall Billy Moran


Janet Schrader-Seccafico
Democrat Reporter
Four Suwannee Bulldogs have been
named to the Florida Sports \\ nitc , Associ-
ation All-State teams. Rheed Baldwin made
the All-State third team as a utility player.
Ryan Stovall and Billy Moran made All-
State honorable mention as infielders. Ross
Aretino made All-State honorable mention
as an outfielder.
Only three teams statewide placed more
players on the FSWA All-State team than


Suwannee, class 3A state champion Key
West, 3A runner-up Orlando Bishop Moore,
and final four participant Pensacola
C.hiliolic
Stovall is the only senior. Baldwin, Moran
and Aretino will be back as Bulldogs next
year.
This is the first time Baldwin has made
the All-State team. It's a first for Moran and
Aretino as well. Stovall, the only senior on
the team this year, made his third appear-
ance on the All-State team as an infielder.
Stovall was a four-year letterman for the
Suwannee Bulldogs and has been short stop


for three straight seasons.
"With the selection of these players it con-
tinues a long streak of Suwannee baseball
players who have garnered state wide recog-
nition over the past eight years," head base-
ball coach Ronnie Gray said. "In those eight
years 23 Suwannee baseball players have
been selected to the state's top team, which
is selected and voted on by sports writers
across the state."
Other local baseball players selected in-
cluded First Team All-State class 4A selec-
tion senior Michael Kirkman of Columbia
County. Kiikman was not only First Team


All-State. but was selected in the fifth round
of this year's major league draft right out of
high school, and is now pitching for the
Texas Rangers minor league affiliate in Sur-
prise, Ariz. Madison senior Brian Bass
a, Pensacola Junior College signee, and out-
fielder Lucas Rutherford, a Tallahassee
Community College signee, were class 3A
honorable mention selections. Tallahassee
Florida High's senior first baseman Bryant
Elkins was selected as well.

This year's free volleyball
camp at Suwannee High had
a great turnout. Girls of all
ages and all experience levels
worked on basic volleyball
skills and more refined tech-
niques. SHS Coach Cissy
Witt taught the girls attend-
ing along with help from
some of her graduated se-
niors. Kyla Serrano and
Heather Benson were there to
coach the players and work
along with them.
Coach Witt said the camp

seemed to be enjoying them-
selves while learning.

With the football season draw-
ing ever closer, Suwannee Bull-
dog football is still without a
quarterback. During Suwannee's
7-14 loss 'to Williston in the
Spring Jamboree, the Dogs
played Ryan Hight and Tajuan
Roundtree. Neither of these two
quarterbacks attended the recent
Quarterback Camp at Valdosta
State on June 16-18. Nick
Bracewell, Casey Brewer and
Shean Brewer were Suwannee's


candidates for quarterback at the
camp. Coach Bobby Bennett said
Roundtree is still recovering from
a back injury he sustained at the
Williston game and Hight is out
of town. Bennett said two quar-
terbacks transferred into Suwan-
nee from Georgia. He said one of
them broke his hand the first
week practicing but is a viable
prospect.
According to Bennett, the Dog
passing squad that participated in
the Passing Tournament after the
Quarterback Camp lost two

Kerry Earnhardt subs for Dale Earn hardt Jr. in Daytona Test


Having friends willing to go
drafting with you is always,
important at superspeedway
tracks such as Daytona Inter-
national Speedway, and Kerry
Earnhardt hopes his one-day
testing session in his brother
Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s Busch Se-
ries ride earns him a favor.
"I'll think I'll have one this
coming Daytona," said Earn-
hardt when asked if he'll have
any drafting friends. "I'll have
a couple of them here actually
with (Dale Earnhardt Inc. dri-
ver Paul) Menard and Junior
both. I know they'll work with
me quite a bit. We've done it
in the past and I know it'll
happen this time. I believe
that's the only ones that are
going to be out there."


Kerry Earnhardt shook
down the No. 81 Menard's
Chevrolet that Earnhardt Jr.
will wheel in the Winn Dixie
250 presented by Pepsico
Busch Series race on Friday,
July 2. Also testing Busch Se-
ries cars on Monday at the
Speedway were Jeff Spraker
(subbing for Mike Bliss in the
No. 30 Ski Motorsports
Chevrolet) and Clint Bowyer
(No. 2 Richard Childress Rac-
ing Chevrolet).
NASCAR veteran Joe
Ruttman was testing the No.
09 Phoenix Racing Chevrolet
in preparation for the Pepsi
400 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup
Series race o0 Saturday night,
July 2.
When Earnhardt returns for


the Pepsi 400 Weekend on
June 30-July 2, he'll be
pulling double duty. He'll race
Michael Waltrip's No. 99
Aaron's Chevrolet in the Winn
Dixie 250 presented by Pepsi-
co as well as the No. 33 Bass
Pro Shops Chevrolet for own-
er Richard Childress in the
Pepsi 400 on Saturday, July 2.
Earnhardt drove a second
Michael Waltrip Racing
Chevrolet earlier this year at
Talladega in the Aaron's 312
Busch Series race and chal-
lenged for the victory before
settling for a fifth-place finish.
The lack of drafting partners
at the end of the race played a
factor in Earnhardt's fifth-
place finish. He's looking to
deliver a different story in


Waltrip's car during the up-
coming Winn Dixie 250 pre-
sented by Pepsico.
"He jpst asked me if I like to
drive Daytona and of course
you don't turn it down as a dri-
ver especially as bad as I want
to get back in the seat," said
Earnhardt, who sat on the pole
at Daytona during February's
NASCAR Craftsman Truck
Series race.
Racing at the legendary tri-
oval of Daytona International
Speedway is something Earn-
hardt loves to do.
\"Daytona really puts on a
great show," Earnhardt said.
"Race is a race. I love them all
but Daytona and Talladega
both are very special. The su-
perspeedway races are very


challenging. You have to be
mentally prepared as much as
physically. You have to know
when to make the right moves
drafting at the right time."
Bowyer, a native of Empo-
ria, Kan., was strolling
through the new NEXTEL
Cup Series of Daytona Inter-
national Speedway with an ex-
tra spring in his step. He
earned his first career Busch
Series victory a few weeks
ago in Nashville, Tenn.
"It was good to get that
monkey off of our back with
that first win," said Bowyer,
who earned his first Busch
victory on his 32nd career
start. "It was a long time com-
ing. We got close a couple of
times but for whatever the rea-


son we couldn't get it done."
Bowyer, who was testing a
brand new Chevrolet from the
Richard Childress Racing sta-
ble in preparation for the Winn
Dixie 250 presented by Pepsi-
co, hopes more victories will
be around the corner.
"I don't know what it is
about that first win," Bowyer
said. "Even when I was racing
dirt cars back home. You race
and race and race and you don't
win. Then finally once you get
that win you can click more off.
It's like you see the light. You
figured it out after that."

Weekend are available online

IASK DR. MANTOOTHI


Q: How many teeth should I expect to lose
as I get older?
A: If you follow some relatively simple
guidelines, you should expect to not lose
any. It used to be that people would expect
to lose teeth, but with constantly improving
dental care techniques, that's really no
longer true. Here are some fundamental
tips to keep in mind: Stay away from sugar.
The average American consumes almost
150 pounds of sugar a year. Plaque, the
clear, sticky substance that accumulates
on your teeth every day and can cause
cavities and gum disease, loves sugar.
Stop smoking. Smoing.moking is one of the
leading risk factors in the development of
gum disease. Smokeless tobacco is bad,
too. Its use significantly increases the risk
of developing oral cancer. Speaking of
plaque-be sur remove it every day. Try
to brush your teeth after every meal. The
long food residue stays in your mouth, the
more contact it has with teeth. Brush with
an American Dental Association-approved
fluoride toothpaste. And floss every day.
Remember to rinse after flossing to wash
away dislodged food particles. Follow these
guidelines and you should keep a healthy
smile all your life.

Don't look at weather radar
because if you do, you may just
see the wrong thing. The radar
looked very, very bad. Black
clouds looked like the bottom
was going to just fall out but
New Smyrna Speedway lucked
out for a second week in a row
and was able to get the full pro-
gram in. Because of the rainy
weather that has covered the
state of Florida, heat races were
canceled and only features ran.
Today it is very hard on
everyone, economy wise, and
when the weather looks as bad
as it did, a lot of racers just don't
come thinking they will spend
all that money getting to the
truck only to be sent home with-
out one lap down due to weath-
er. You can't blame them, gas is
just too precious today. But
there were a few brave ones
even some desperate ones from
Orlando Speed World, who nor-
mally only race there, who
needed a racing fix after four
weeks of nothing but rainouts.
This was the last race for the
Super Lates before the big July
3rd event in which they could
check out and fine tune their
cars. B.J. McLeod had the pole
for the 25 lap feature and proved
to himself and the fans that he
can still put on one heck of a
show.
B.J. held off the hard charge,
and I do mean hard charge be-
cause that is what David Rogers
is best at, of David Rogers lap
after lap to take his first check-
ered flag for the 2005 season.
Crossing the checkered behind
McLeod and Rogers was David
Froelich, "Hottie" Scotty
Crockett, and Jared Allison.
Dave Riley of Melbourne came
in sixth in his brand new Super
Late which is a very nice look-
ing car and still being fine
tuned.'
Mark Smith had the pole for
the Late Model feature but
found his hands full right off the
bat with Rusty Ebersole. Eber-
sole and Smith went side-by-
side as Ebersole finally took the
lead followed by Smith, Alli
Owens, Charles Kopach, and
Duane Schubert.
Kopach passed Owens for
third with a very fast Sam Watts
coming from the rear for fourth
and Owens in fifth. A.J. Curre-
li was making his presence
known as Watts passed Kopach
for third. The caution came out
for Schubert and Curreli as they
got together in turns 3 and 4.
Both were fine but done for the
night and went into the pits. ,
Ebersole took the point on the
restart followed by Smith,

Kopach, Watts, and Owens. But
it did not take Watts, winner of
last week's Late Model feature,
long to pass Kopach and begin
to reel in Ebersole for the point.
Watts finally made his move
and took over as Kopach came
with him putting Ebersole in
third. Watts took the checkered
for his second win in a row over
Charles Kopach, Rusty Eber-
sole, Alli Owens, and Mark
Smith.
Ted Helmes had the pole for
the Open Wheel Modified fea-
ture but it was Art Kunzeman
who took the lead on the green
followed by Bobby Blake, Ted
Helmes, Alan Bruns and Tank
Tucker. Tucker wasted little
time coming up and taking over
third from Helmes as Helmes
went to fourth. By WATCH
OUT, Jerry Symons has now
shown his face and is in fifth.
The yellow is thrown when
Helmes loses his motor in turn


4. Helmes goes into the pit and
done for the night. On the
restart, here comes Tucker who
quickly takes the point over
Blake, Jerry Symons and Brad
May. Rob Partelo brings out the
yellow. as he visits the front
stretch wall. Partelo is now
done for the night.
Tucker holds the point on the
restart followed by Bobby
Blake, Jerry Symons, Brad
May, and Chuck Burkhalter
(now that is a top five). Symons
puts. pressure on Blake who
fights but can't hold off Symons
as Symons takes over second.
Then Brad May shows his pow-
er and passes Blake for third as
Blake settles into fourth with
Burkhalter now behind him.
Burkhalter does not want fifth at
all and puts the pressure on
Blake and takes over fourth.
Tucker does not yield and
takes the checkered for yet an-
other win at New Smyrna


Speedway followed by Jerry
Symons, Brad May, Chuck
Burkhalter and Bobby Blake.
Pro Trucks are also getting
ready for Sunday, July 3rd, as
they go 50 laps. Ron Dubeau
has the pole for the feature but
it is Marty Wolf and Bill Stacy
who go side-by-side right off
the bat. But a spin by Vic
Slacker on the front stretch
brings the field under yellow.
On the restart, it is Wolf, Stacy,
Scott Reeves, A.J. Curreli and
C.J. Calabrese in the top five.
Reeves, who debuted his new
truck last weekend, proved he
did a lot of homework over the
week as he takes over second.
Curreli goes along with Reeves
taking over third as Stacy goes
to fourth followed by Calabrese
in fifth. Suddenly Curreli be-
gins to slow and must pull his
truck into the pits after a very
good run. The yellow comes
out to check the track and once
again, the field is realigned.
Wolf takes little time taking
the point over Reeves, Stacy,
Slacker, and Calabrese. But it
is obvious that Calabrese is


fighting a loose truck as he
slides in the comers. Dubeau
takes advantage of this problem
and takes over fifth with Cal-
abrese going to sixth. Wolf
takes the checkered for his first
feature win followed by Scott
Reeves, Bill Stacy, Vic Slacker,
and Ron Dubeau.
Bruce Wingate had the pole
for the Super Stock feature but
spun going into turn one bring-
ing out the yellow before the
first lap was down. Several
cars had flat tires and had to pit
bqt..v' ere able to rejoin the field
foi the green. On the second
green it was Josh Wronkowski
who took the point followed by
Bill Wingate, James Adams, Ja-
son Foster, and Faris Crews.
Crews passes Adams and
takes over fourth as Adams
settles into fifth. The yellow
comes out again for Crews
and Wingate who have gotten
together in turn 3. Once again
Crews has a flat tire and must
pit for a change. The race
goes green with Wronkowski
on the point followed by Fos-
ter, Barber, Bruce McGonigal


Speedway
Jr., and JT Tippins who has a
slightly damaged front from
the first caution of the race.
Wronkowski holds on and
takes the checkered followed
by Jason Foster, Ed Barber,
James Adams and JT Tippins.
Mike Wofford had the pole
for the Strictly Stock feature
but it was Jose Rivera who
took the point over Maureen
Dahm, Ray Tanguay, Nick
Boley and Jeremy Hoven-
camp. Hovencamp was shak-
ing down the car which his
sister will race in the Strictly
Stock division. Tanguay takes
over second with Boley in
'third followed by Hovencamp
and Dahm. Andy Richards,
who runs the Strictly Stock di-
vision at Orlando Speed
World, makes his presence
known as he takes over fifth.
Ken Walker brings out the
yellow on lap 10 when he
spins and goes in for the night.
Rivera holds the point for
the restart and takes the
checkered followed by Ray
Tanguay, Nick Boley, Andy
Richards, and Chris Ridley.

Recent rainfall spikes mosquito


populations and disease;


Bronson urges horse owners

and public to take precautions


Heavy spring rainfall has
triggered major increases in the
state's mosquito population and
resulted in a spike of Eastern
Equine Encephalitis (EEE) cas-
es among horses, Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson reported today.
As a result, Bronson is urg-
ing horse owners to make sure
their animals are vaccinated
against the disease and advising
all Floridians to take precau-
tions to minimize their expo-
sure to mosquitoes.
"It's critical that the public
take notice that we are experi-
encing large increases in Flori-
da's mosquito population and
begin taking steps to protect not
only their horses but them-
selves, as well," Bronson said.
"Many common mosquitoes
are capable of carrying a nunm-
ber of potentially dangerous
diseases."
As of today, 51 horses in 22
Florida counties this year have
contracted EEE - a virus that
results in brain swelling and is
generally fatal in horses, and
sometimes fatal in humans. No


human cases of EEE have been
detected yet in 2005, according
to health officials.
By contrast, only 45 cases of
EEE were recorded for the en-
tire year in 2004, leading some
to believe that this year's cases
could approach the approxi-
mately 200 recorded in the two
heaviest years in recent history
-2003 and 1982. On average,
Florida records about 62 cases
of EEE each year.
Bronson said this year's
numbers make it all the more
important that horse owners
check with their veterinarians
to make sure that their animals
have been vaccinated against
the disease and to make sure
that booster shots are up to
date. While no West Nile Virus
cases have yet been reported
this year, horses should be vac-
cinated against that mosquito-
borne disease also, Bronson
said.
While no human cases of ei-
ther disease has been detected
in Florida this year, the fact that
mosquitoes carrying EEE are
present in at least 22 counties
means people are also vulnera-

ble to contracting the disease.
Among precautions that resi-
dents should take are avoiding
the out-of-doors at dusk and
dawn, when mosquitoes are
most active; wearing protective
clothing - including long-
sleeved shirts, pants and socks
- when venturing outside dur-
ing those hours; and using an
insect repellent containing ei-
ther DEET or Picaridin.
Homeowners should also re-
move standing water from their
property, as stagnant water in
bird baths, plant saucers, old
tires and kiddie pools make ex-
cellent breeding grounds for
mosquitoes.


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) is offering
hunters a great opportunity to
take part in its annual statewide
alligator harvest, which runs

a thrilling, hands-on, face-to-
face hunting adventure that is
unlike any other hunting expe-
rience imaginable.
This. season, more than
4,000 Alligator Harvest Per-,
mits will be available on a
first-come, first-served basis.
Permit holders are authorized
to take two alligators from des-
ignated areas during specific
harvest periods.
Sale of these permits begins

collector's office, license agent
(retail outlet that sells hunting
and fishing licenses), online at
MyFWC.com/license or by
calling toll-free 1-888-HUNT-.
FLORIDA (486-8356) ,from
anywhere in the United States
or Canada.
To reserve a permit, appli-
cants must submit payment for
an Alligator Trapping License

tion tags, or provide proof of a
valid Alligator Trapping Li-
cense (must be valid through
Oct. 8) plus pay the fee for the
two hide validation tags. No
other hunting licenses are re-
quired.
The cost for a Resident Alli-
gator Trapping License and

Florida preserves Panther Glades

--562-acre acquisition protects wildlife habitat-


The State of Florida recent-
ly closed on 562 acres of nat-
ural Florida bordering Ameri-
ca's Everglades with the help
of The Nature Conservancy.

sition in


the endangered Florida pan-
ther.


onserves "This purchase preserves
habitat for land buffering the Everglades
including and increases protection for
the famed River of Grass,"
said Department of Environ-
mental Protection Secretary
Colleen M. Castille. "By cre-
ating continuous natural cor-
ridors through purchases like
this, we are conserving di-
verse ecosystems that support
threatened and endangered
wildlife."i
Part of the 57,600-acre
Panther Glades Florida For-
ever project, the 562-acre
parcel was preserved through
a perpetual conservation
easement, allowing the prop-
erty owner to continue using
the land while protecting it
from development. More
than 26,600 acres of the con-
servation project are now in
public ownership.
Located in Hendry County,
the large watery landscape
adjoins the Big Cypress
Seminole Indian Reservation
and includes portions of the
Big Cypress and Kissimmee
Billy Strand. The mosaic of
forested uplands and wet-
lands supports a variety of
protected, species, including
the crested caracara, wood-
stork, hand fern and delicate
flower orchid, and provides
nature-based recreation op-
portunities such as hiking,
camping, fishing and trail rid-

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION NOTICE OF INTENTTO
GRANT VARIANCE

The Department of Environmental Protection
gives notice of its intent to issue a variance un-
der section 403.201 of the Florida Statutes
(F.S.) from the provisions of rule 62-
302.530(31), Florida Administrative Code
(EA.C.), to Scott Cleveland, of A Mining
Group, L.L.C., Post Office Box 1829, Lake
City, Florida 32056, File Number 0229548-
002-EV, to allow water within the reclaimed
mining pits at the CR 252 Limestone Mine to
not meet the standard for dissolved oxygen in
the lower layers of the pits.

The project area includes land owned by two
separate property owners. The definition of
"waters" provided in subsection 403.031(13),
F.S., includes water bodies owned by more
than one person. At the completion of mining,
two property owners will jointly own the re-
claimed lake and therefore the water quality
standards listed in rule 62-302.530, F.A.C. will
apply.

Water quality studies conducted at other lime-
rock mines in the state indicate that the water
within the lakes is expected to be vertically
well mixed during the wing the winter months. However,
during the warmer summer months, the lakes
are expected to stratify and dissolved oxygen
required by rule 62-302,530(31), EA.C. This
condition was anticipated by the Florida Legis-
lature in paragraph 373.414(6)(a), F.S., which
states that "Where such mining activities oth-
erwise meet the permitting criteria contained
in this section, such activities may be eligible
for a variance from the established water qual-


Suwannee Legals


ity standard for dissolved oxygen within the
lower layers of the reclaimed pit." A petition for
a variance pursuant to section 403.201, F.S.
was received on April 29, 2005.

Low dissolved oxygen levels in the lower lev-
els of the mine lakes are not expected to result
in any adverse on-site or off-site impacts. Oxy-
gen levels in the upper layers of the lakes are
expected to be adequate to support the fish
populations of the lakes during periods when
stratification occurs. It is not expected that the
low dissolved oxygen water from the lower lev-
els of the lakes will be exchanged with off-site
waters.

The situation could be eliminated by the con-
struction of deep-water dikes that would effec-
fively separate the property parcels into sepa-
rate lakes. This approach was rejected in favor
of a variance for four reasons. Construction of
dikes would provide no environmental benefit,
would require permanent maintenance, may
reduce the habitat value of the area by re-
stricting the movement of water, nutrients, and
fish and wildlife between the lakes and the
surrounding habitat. In addition, the dikes
would provide potential vehicle and pedestrian
access to the area, which may encourage
dumping and other activities harmful to the
habitat value and water quality of the lakes
and surrounding areas.

There is no practicable means known or avail-
able to prevent the low dissolved oxygen lev-
els at depth within the mining lakes. Therefore,
the Department intends to issue a variance in
conjunction with this permit, pursuant to para-
graph 403.201(1)(a), F.S., for dissolved oxy-
gen in the lower layers of the reclaimed lakes.

The Department's file on this matter is avail-
able for public inspection during normal busi-
ness hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday
through Friday, except legal holidays, at the
Florida Department of Environmental Protec-
tion, Bureau of Mine Reclamation, 2051 East
Dirac Drive, Tallahassee, Florida 32310-3760,
Telephone: (850) 488-8217.

Under this intent to issue, this variance is
hereby granted subject to the applicant's com-
pliance with any requirement in this intent to
publish notice of this intent in a newspaper of
general circulation and to provide proof of
such publication in accordance with section
50.051, F.S. This action is final and effective of
the date filed with the Clerk of the Department
unless a sufficient petition for an administra-
tive hearing is timely filed under sections
120.569 and 120.57, F.S. as provided below. If
a sufficient petition for an administrative hear-
ing is timely filed, this intent to issue automat-
ically becomes only proposed agency action
on the application, subject to the result of the
administrative review process. Therefore, on
the filing of a timely and sufficient petition, this
action will not be final and effective until fur-
ther order of the Department. When proof of
publication is provided, if required by this in-
tent, and if a sufficient petition is not timely
filed, the variance will be issued as a ministe-
rial action. Because an administrative hearing
may result in the reversal or substantial modi-
fication of this action, the applicant is advised
not to commence construction or other activi-
ties until the deadlines noted below for filing a
petition for an administrative hearing or re-
quest for an extension of time have expired
and until the variance has been executed and
delivered. Mediation is not available.

A person whose substantial interests are af-
fected by the Department's action may petition
for an administrative proceeding (hearing) urn-
der sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The pe-
tition must contain the information set forth be-
low and must be filed (received by the clerk) in
the Office of General Counsel of the Depart-
ment at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.

Under rule 62-110,106(4), F.A.C., a person
whose substantial interests are affected by the
Department's action may also request an-ex-
tension of time to file a petition for an adminis-
trative hearing. The Department may, for good
cause shown, grant the request for an exten-
sion of time. Requests for extension of time
must be filed with the Office of General Coun-
sel of the Department at 3900-Commonwealth
Boulevard,'Mail Siation 35, Tallahassee, Flori-
da 32399-3000, before the applicable dead-
line. A timely request for extension of time
shall toll the running of the time period for fil-
ing a petition until the request is acted upon. If
a request is filed late, the Department may still
grant it upon a motion by the requesting party
showing that the failure to file a request for an
extension of time before the deadline was the
result of excusable neglect.

If a timely and sufficient petition for an admin-
istrative hearing is filed, other persons whose
substantial interests will be affected by the
outcome of the administrative process have
the right to petition to intervene in the pro-
ceeding. Intervention will be permitted only at'
the discretion of the presiding officer upon the
filing of a motion in compliance with rule 28-
106.205, E.A.C.

In accordance with rules 28-106.111(2) and
62-110.106(3)(a)(4), F.A.C. petitions for an ad-
ministrative hearing by the applicant must be
filed within 21 days of receipt of this written
notice. Petitions filed by any persons other
than the applicant, and other than those enti-
tled to written notice under subsection
120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within 21 days of
publication of the notice or within 21 days of
receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs
first. Under subsection 120.60(3), ES., howev- -
er, any'person who has asked the Department
for notice o(f agency action may file a petition
within 21 days of receipt of such notice, re-
gardless of the date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition
to the applicant at the address Indicated
above at the time of filing. The failure of any
person to file a petition for an administrative
hearing within the appropriate time period
shall constitute a waiver of that person's right
to request an administrative determination
(hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57,

Florida tops America's Best Beaches List


Sunshine state's sand and surf takes three spots on Dr. Beach's Famous Top 10


America's Best Beaches,
the famous annual top 10 list
by world-renowned coastal
expert "Dr. Beach" (a.k.a.
Dr. Stephen Leatherman),
ranks a Florida beach as No.
1 in the nation. Additionally,
three Florida beaches are fea-
tured on the top 10 list of
premier swimming beaches;
a distinction making waves
just in time for summer at
this popular vacation desti-
nation.
Fort De Soto Park's North
Beach, located near St. Pe-
tersburg on Florida's central
west coast, takes the top hon-
ors on the Best Beaches 2005
list. "North Beach and Fort


De Soto Park just have so
much to offer," shares Dr.
Stephen Leatherman. "In ad-
dition to its great natural set-
ting," Dr. Leatherman
claims, "Fort De Soto Park
offers something for every-
one; there's great fishing,
boating, canoeing, kayaking,
bird-watching, camping, bik-
ing, walking trails and a dog
park. There's even a 105-
year old fort on-site that's a
landmark of Florida history."
Florida's Gulf Coast
scored high on Dr. Beach's
2005 list with the No. 4 pick
- Calades'� Island State
Park, Dunedin - also a short
drive from St.

Florida International Univer-
sity professor has issued his
annual list of top 10 beaches
in America. Each list com-
prises the best swimming
beaches in the country, based
on criteria evaluating scien-
tific and ecological factors,
as wdll as facilities and man-
agement. Once a beach is de-
clared No. 1, it is retired from
the Best Beaches survey.
Florida is home to several
previous national winners:
St. Joseph Peninsula State
Park (2002), St. Andrews
State Recreation Area (1995),
Grayton Beach State Recre-
ation Area (1994) and Bahia
Honda State Recreation Area
(1992).
With more than 1,200
miles of coastline to explore,
Florida's beaches are among
the best in the world. Ac-
cording to Dr. Beach, "Flori-
da beaches are great because
there are so many to choose
from, with so many varieties
of activities. Wherever you
are .in the state, there are
beaches relatively close by
with ample accommodations
for vacation visitors and day
trippers. This state is blessed
with so many days of sun-
shine, overall such perfect
beach weather, and the dedi-
cation of communities and
beach administrators who
work diligently to care for
these important resources."
A record-breaking 76.8
million visitors came to
Florida last year and this
summer's travel forecast
seems promising. VISIT
FLORIDA, the state's offi-
cial source for travel plan-
ning, reports Florida tourism
was impressively strong in
the first quarter of 2005.
From January through March
2005, Florida hosted 23.8
million visitors. This reflects
an increase of 11.5 percent
over the same period last
year, equaling an increase of
2.5 million visitors.
Additionally, the Travel In-
dustry Association of Ameri-
ca (TIAA) predicts a record
number of Americans will
travel this summer, taking an
estimated 328 million leisure
trips, with Florida as a pre-
ferred destination. TIAA an-
ticipates two-thirds of those
Americans will be headed to
the beach and/or visiting
small towns.

Best Beaches, log on to

Lightning Season is here, and you need
our protection:

SURGE PROTECTION PROGRAM: This V I
program is aimed at helping to protect members
homes and sensitive electronic equipment from j t
lightning strikes and other types of power surges and '
spikes. Power surges are sudden powerful increases in
voltage which can damage or destroy household appliances and
electronics like computers, televisions, telephones, and more. Power
surges or spikes can be caused by lightning strikes, birds, animals and
trees interfering with power lines.
L

This package includes a surge protection device which attaches to the base of
the electric meter to reduce high voltage spikes and surges before they enter
the home. An additional level of protection is provided from surge
suppressers to be used inside the home. This kit is designed to offer a basic
level of protection for a household. Obviously, however, specific needs will
vary from family to family and members enrolled in this program can lease
additional surge protectors to suit their individual requirements.

The cost of the basic package is $6.00 per month, with a one time $120.00
installation fee. The installation fee covers properly grounding your house
and installing the protection device within your meter base.

You are obligated to participate in this program for a minimum
three years.
Call 362-2226 for details.

Recognize and overcome
postpartum mood disorder
As a first-time mother, you're faced with many new experiences. The first 2 a.m. feeding. The
first smile. The first time your son or daughter says "Mommy."
When your newborn arrives, you expect it to be a difficult, but rewarding journey. What you
may not expect is to feel an emotional detachment from your baby, sadness, inadequacy ... or
worse ... a crippling depression.
A baby is supposed to bring great joy to your life ... or so all the parenting magazines, your
family and friends say. However, according to Postpartum Support International, approximately
15 percent of all women who give birth will experience postpartum mood disorder - a period of
feeling sad, hopeless and desperate (although some experts estimate the statistics are even
higher). While these mood disorders are quite common, they're rarely if ever mentioned to
expectant mothers by doctors or family. Oftentimes you don't learn about postpartum mood
disorder until you're in the throes of it and wonder why you aren't feeling quite like a happy
mommy.
ALL MOOD DISORDERS ARE NOT THE SAME


Depending upon
depression as a
result of your
pregnancy:
baby blues,
postpartum
depression or
postpartum
psychosis.
Here's how you
can recognize
each type.


your degree of symptoms, you may be experiencing one of three types of


Baby Blues: W

depression that
typically peaks
three to five
days after

can last a few

after childbirth. After the novelty of having a new baby wears off, many women find themselves in the throes of
Baby blues is postpartum mood disorder. Fiecognizing the signs and getting prompt treatment is key to

periods of
irritability,
fatigue, tearfulness and increased sensitivity.
Postpartum Depression (PPD): PPD takes those baby blues to more extreme levels. It refers to a
major depressive episode that occurs usually about four weeks after delivery. Some people think
PPD is a "special" form of depression, which isn't the case: It's a normal depression that just
happens to occur after childbirth. Common symptoms of PPD include feelings of helplessness,
detachment from the baby, changes in eating patterns (whether eating more or less), weight gain
or weight loss, trouble sleeping or sleeping too much, seclusion and more.
Postpartum Psychosis: This is the most serious of the postpartum mood disorders. It is
diagnosed by the same symptoms as PPD, but also by the mother's feelings of suicide or hurting
her baby. Experiences of delusions, hallucinations or other episodes of this nature may also be
common. If you are thinking about hurting your baby or yourself, contact a doctor or emergency

1. The first step in treating postpartum mood disorder is recognizing that you are suffering from
something real, and that it isn't jtist in your mind. Pregnancy hormones are powerful and can set
your body. off kilter. Although there is no specific cause of postpartum mood disorder, experts
'attribute it to plummeting estrogen and progesterone levels after delivery, which can affect mood
and the hormones that keep you feeling upbeat, like serotonin; Factor in lack of sleep from caring
for a newborn and the upheaval to your life as you knew it, and it's easy to see why these
disorders are so common.
"I had an easy pregnancy and delivery," says Janet Moore, 28, a new mom in New Jersey.
"After my son was born, I guess I had unrealistic expectations that his fitting into my life would
be just as easy. However, after a few weeks of being home, I started to experience severe mood
swings. I had insomnia - even though I was exhausted. I didn't want to care for my son, who
didn't feel like a person to me. I felt so helpless - second-guessing everything I was doing. I
started to wish I never had a baby. That's when I realized something wasn't right, and I started to
look for some answers."
2. Your next step should be talking to your family practitioner or your obstetrician. He or she
can evaluate your symptoms and chart the best course of treatment. This may include a referral to
a therapist or psychiatrist who specializes in postpartum issues; a prescription for antidepression
and anti-anxiety medication; or a combination of both. Since someone suffering from the baby
blues is more likely to progress to more advanced stages, starting treatment as soon as possible is
key.
3. Talk about it. There's no shame in feeling depressed after delivery, nor does it make you a
bad mother. You will rebound faster if you talk about your feelings with others who have survived
these mood disorders. Even a successful, well-educated woman can experience these problems. In
fact, actress Brooke Shields recently released a book about her experiences with PPD titled
"Down Came the Rain: My Journey Through Postpartum Depression" (Hyperion). Join a support
group (contact your hospital's maternity ward - they may have a group that meets there), or
search chat rooms online. Also, don't forget about family and friends who can provide the support
you need.
4. Knowing that postpartum mood disorder isn't permanent can help you get through the rough
spots. Although these feelings can continue up to a year after your baby's birth, early treatment
can reduce that time greatly. You'll soon discover that the worst is behind you, and you can, once
again, care for your baby as you had hoped to.
"My obstetrician was a lifesaver and really cared about my well-being," says Janet. "After he
recommended treatment, including therapy and antidepression medication, I started to experience
great changes in my mood and behavior toward my son. It wasn't long before my baby's first
smile and recognition of me coincided with my feeling better. I had finally started to feel that
having a family was all worth it."

HeaTer, Reader, Advisor
All who are unsuccessful, unlucky, dissatisfied,
let the woman who knows help you. She
removes evil influence. If husband or wife is
unfaithful, see her now. She settles lovers
quarrels, helps you gain the lost love and
affection of the one you love and shows you the
way to happiness. She names friends and
enemies and tells you if friends are true or
false. She locates lost & stolen property.
She does not claim to be God. She is just a
servant of the Lord who %was brought here to
help humanity. If you have any problem
concerning the past, present, future, love,
marriage, business, lawsuits, finances, health;
if you are in trouble, sick or in love,
there's no problem so great that
she cannot solve.
