Hurricane Dennis brings tornadoes


Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
Hurricane Dennis was an unwel-
bome visitor to the state over the
weekend that left behind the results
of several tornadoes in Suwannee
County. Other than the tornadoes,
the weekend was fairly normal for
a Category 4 hurricane to be near-
by, Suwannee County Coordina-
tor/Emergency Management Di-
rector Johnny Wooley said.
The Suwannee County Commis-
sion acted early and declared a
state of emergency July 8 at about
4 p.m. in an emergency meeting
just ih case the hurricane were to
affect the county over the weekend.


- no one hurt


Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter
A tornado spawned from Hurri-
cane Dennis touched down about
five miles east of Live Oak Saturday
night damaging several homes and
property. The twister touched down
on an island on Peacock Lake, went

Local officers are taking to the
streets.
Nolan McLeod, Live Oak Police
Chief; Joe Daly, LOPD lieutenant
and Stephanie Laidig, LOPD direc-
tor of victim and communications
services, walked through the
neighborhoods of Dexter, Barclay
and Hawkins streets July 7. The


That declaration allows the county
emergency officials to take specific
actions if needed.
As Dennis approached Florida's
Gulf Coast near Pensacola on Sat-
urday night, a tornado tore through
Suwannee County at about 10:45
p.m. east of Live Oak, doing thou-
sands of dollars in damage to the
home of Ron and June Moss on
Peacock Lake. Not'only was the
roof demolished over part of their
living room that faces the lake, but
dozens of old oak trees were up-
rooted or snapped off in the sec-
onds it took for the tornado to pass
over, Ron. Moss said. The couple
was awakened when the pressure
rose in the home and they heard
the sound of shattering glass, June


uphill and hit a house, moved
through Camp Weed, tore through
the Lundy Lane area and hit Gay-
lord's Outdoor Equipment. No in-
juries were reported.
The twister reaped havoc on the
property of Ron and June Moss.
June Moss said she got up Satur-
day night to take some Tylenol for an
injured knee and went back to bed 20
minutes before the twister hit.


Chiefs Neighborhood Walk and
Talk Program builds partnerships
with the community and addresses
citizens' concerns.
The LOPD began implementing
the walk several years ago as a
community outreach. The goal is to
reach all neighborhoods in the city
limits each year.
McLeod said rather than sitting
behind a mound of paperwork

Moss said. "It only took seconds
for it to pass over," June Moss said.
What was left was a house with
shattered glass everywhere, water,
a tree limb sticking through the
roof, the railing gone from the dock
built out to the boat house that was
also severely damaged, plantings
destroyed and the list goes on and

on. But, said the couple, material
things can be replaced, their lives
cannot.
The tornado moved on westward
over the home of Wayne Law,
downing only a couple of trees
away from the house, then dropped
down at Camp Weed where there
was extensive damage to very old


trees and one cabin received dam-
age. Executive Director Joe Cham-
berlain said the path of destruction
was about 50 yards wide. Cham-
berlain said the trees picked up by
the tornado were dropped among
cars and cabins at Camp Weed but

LIGHTNING IGNITES CITY GAS LINE: A severe lightning strike July 11 struck a tree, ran down the
tree into the root system which was over a city gas line and ruptured the two inch gas line. Live Oak
Fire Department rushed to the scene on Ruby Street from the Suwannee Democrat where another
severe lightning strike had set off the burglar and fire alarms but no damage was done. The Ruby
Street situation was corrected without any injuries or incident after the residents were evacuated
safely, according to LOFD Safety Officer Alan Bedenbaugh. - Photo: Submitted

"I was drifting off to sleep
and started feeling pressure in
my ears," she said. "I thought,
'my knee is hurt and now it's my
ears!'"
"Ron, something bad's get-
ting ready to happen; 'Jesus
Protect us, '" she screamed at
her sleeping husband who was
then became very awake and
alert. Later, when she entered
the living room, the ceiling was
gone and glass was everywhere.
June Moss said she felt a hu-
mid, hot draft when she opened
the bedroom door and went into
the main part of the house. The
tornado had ripped off half of
the Mosses' living room roof,
shattered several windows and
damaged the fireplace. Also,
rain from the storm was pouring
through and later leaked
through the first floor, damag-
ing the basement ceiling and
fireplace.
In spite of all the damage, a
treasured chandelier given to
June Moss by her husband
many years ago was almost un-
scathed and still hung from the
high ceiling with only one light
bulb missing. She said it was a
treasure that was irreplaceable
because her husband gave it to
her when they were younger
and still struggling to make
their mark in the world, and he
wanted her to have something
pretty.
Ron Moss said he was asleep
when the tornado hit. It didn't
take him long to get wide
awake.
"It sounded like a giant vacu-
um cleaner," Ron Moss said.
"I'm still dazed."
At the same time the tornado
hit, the alarm system went off,
security people began calling
and the rain was falling heavily

through the gaping hole in the
ceiling. It was a moment not
soon to be forgotten by the cou-
ple. Soon after, friends and fam-
ily arrived at the house to help
with the clean-up. Suwannee
River Log Homes furnished a
clean-up crew for the yard and
is overseeing re-construction.
Damage assessments are still
being done but damages will be
high.
The Moss property also sus-
tained damages to the deck and
boat house, to patio furniture
and to dozens of old oak and
sycamore trees. However, the
couple is thankful no one was
injured. "I look around and
smile and say, 'thank you,"' Ron
Moss said.
"We are blessed - we can re-
place material things, but our
lives can't be replaced," June
Moss said as she looked around
at her husband working with
others to reclaim their once
beautiful yard.
The twister also ripped
through Camp Weed on 75th
Road. Several huge trees were
destroyed, taking out power
lines and striking.cabins Bishop
E. Hamilton West and Yerkes
.Hall. Joe Chamberlain, execu-
tive director of Camp Weed,
said about 20 counselors were
staying in Yerkes Hall when the
twister struck. Windows were
blown out and a few trees fell
on the roof, but there were no


structural damages and no one
was hurt, he said.
Tri-County Tree Service, Inc.
and the youth group from St.
Mark's Episcopal Church in
Jacksonville aided in the clean-
up.
The twister split several trees
on Jim and Craig Willis' proper-
ty on Lundy Lane.
"One tree took out my shed,
and another one took out my
water tank," Jim Willis said.
* Minor damages were done to
the Willis home. A branch bent
the roof overhang and tore off a
piece of the back of the roof. No
one was injured.
Lewis and Mary Mehaffey's
property near Lundy Lane sus-
tained heavy damages.
"When the storm hit, I was
watching television and the
door started vibrating," Mary
Mehaffey said.
The twister tore the roof and
railing off the back porch, leav-
ing the Mehaffey's caged birds
with no shelter. Tree limbs
smashed their vehicle, barn and
rental house. Numerous trees
and power lines were down on
the property.
While walking around the
yard viewing the damage,
Lewis Mehaffey pointed out the
tin from the roof laying around
and pointed at the barn and said,
"That limb over there is all the
way throughout the barn."
No one was injured.

thinking about the need to vis-
it the community, the program
gets personnel out there.
During the walk, officers
invite residents to walk with
them and have a one-on-one
chat. Citizens are asked about
neighborhood and community
concerns which the LOPD lat-
er addresses.
The LOPD identifies issues,
examines problems and devel-
ops remedy plans and time
frames for plans to be carried
out. Later, they evaluate plans
and apply alternate solutions
as necessary.
"(The program) provides an
avenue for issues to be
brought up," McLeod said.
Residents express concerns


varying from crime reduction
to garbage collection issues,
depending on the neighbor-
hood. Officers also occasion-
ally get crime tips.
The LOPD often receives
complaints about the speed
and amount of vehicles travel-
ing through neighborhoods,
McLeod said.
Joe Horne, resident on
Bynum Avenue, said that
LOPD's visit to the neighbor-
hood benefits the welfare of
the community and helps keep
crime down.
Other than a bike being
stolen occasionally in the
neighborhood, Home said the
area is pretty safe.
Jewel Harrell, resident on
Bynum Avenue, said officers
regularly patrol the area.


CHIEF NOLAN MCLEOD TALKS WITH RESIDENT: Live Oak Police

Officers came to check on
Harrell during a storm in
March where a pine tree
snapped and fell on her house.
"One (officer) stopped
with me out there the night of
the storm to see if I was
okay," she said. "I think it's
great for them to get to know
you on a one-to-one basis
other than just passing you
on the street."
According to an LOPD uni-
form crime report, crime in
Live Oak has lowered since
the department's inception in
1996. From last year, violent
crimes were down 51 percent
since the first statistics calcu-
lated in 1997. From last year,
non-violent crimes were down
41 percent during the same
time span.
"Community police philos-
ophy is very firm with crime
and holds these people ac-
countable," McLeod said.
Anyone who has a crime tip
can call crime stoppers at 386-
208-TIPS. Callers report
anonymously.
Chief McLeod and other of-
ficers will be walking the.
streets each Thursday at 5
p.m. Tomorrow the depart-
ment will cover the areas of
Georgia Avenue and Duval,
McGee and Bryson streets.
The program will be imple-
mented through August.

GUEST OPINION

Catering to kids:

Is it in their best interest?
From: The Florida Education Monthly: July 2005
A Project of The James Madison Institute
According to a report in the Orlando Sentinel, several
schools in Florida are turning their focus to cafeteria
themes and design.
One cafeteria was described as follows; "The adobe fire-
place could raise a few eyebrows, along with the
Caribbean-themed murals. And it probably will be hard not
to notice the three life-size pirate mannequins standing on
a platform next to the lunch line or the wig-clad skeleton
that will ride a cannon set on top of a powder keg."
"This is what we have to do now because, this is what
kids are used to," said artist Tom Galvin, who has worked
on the decor of the above-described'cafeteria of Matanzas
High School in Flagler County.
And Osceola County is looking at employing the same
artist to create an innovative cafeteria in its new alternative
ninth-grade center.
This school will be used to give freshmen who do poor-
ly on the FCAT a chance to improve their scores with a
year of intense course work.
But without sports teams, clubs or other extracurricular
activities, some say there isn't much about the school that
will make the students excited to be there.
But is all this worry about whether kids are excited caus-
ing their education to suffer?
One educational expert thinks so.
Paul Zoch, author of "Doomed to Fail," suggests that our
educational philosophy is the real reason American stu-
dents are unable to keep up with their peers in other coun-
tries because it focuses on everything but one thing: stu-
dent effort.
In a review of Zoch's book, George Clowes of the Heart-
land Institute, quotes the following passage,
"American educational philosophy ... expects teachers to
provide stimuli that will overpower the students' sense of
boredom or so inspire the students to learn that they will be
swept up in a torrent of educational ecstasy and learn nat-
urally without having to experience stress and discom-
fort."
Clowes adds that Zoch contrasts this approach 'with
Japan's, where students do not expect learning to be "fun"'
or "exciting" but instead anticipate it will be difficult and
involve some suffering.
But one Superintendent in Florida, referring to a new
cafeteria, said "We wanted to do something like the envi-
ronment that most kids like to be in, and that's a mall."
Zoch may say this is the wrong kind of thinking, "Stu-
dents must understand that going to school is their job."

British Prime Minister Tony
Blair is pressuring the rich nations
of the world to give more foreign
aid to Africa - to the tune of $25
billion a year by 2010. The U.S. al-
ready gave $3.2 billion last year. In
the wake of this pressure, we might
ask ourselves whether it's foreign
aid that Africa needs most for eco-
nomic development.
A standard myth is there's a "vi-


cious cycle of poverty" that makes economic development
virtually impossible for the world's poor nations. This
myth holds that poor countries are poor because income is
so low that savings cannot be generated to provide the
kind of capital accumulation necessary for economic
growth. Thus, it is alleged, the only way out of perpetual
poverty is foreign aid.
Let's examine the "vicious cycle of poverty" myth and
whether foreign aid is a necessary ingredient for econom-
ic development. The U.S., Britain, France, Canada and
most other countries were once poor. Andrew Bernstein of
the Ayn Rand Institute wrote in an article titled "Capital-
ism Is the Cure for Africa's Problems" that pre-industrial
Europe was vastly poorer than contemporary Africa.
A relatively well-off country, like France, experienced
several famines between the 15th and 18th centuries as
well as plagues and diseases that sometimes killed hun-
dreds of thousands. In France, life expectancy was 20
years, in Ireland it was 19 years, and in early 18th-century
London, more than 74 percent of the children died before
reaching age 5.
Beginning in the late 18th century, there was a dramatic
economic turnabout in Europe. How in the world did these
once poor and backward countries break the "vicious cy-
cle of poverty" and become wealthy, without what today's
development experts say is absolutely necessary for eco-
nomic growth - foreign aid handouts, World Bank and
International Monetary Fund loans, and billions of dollars
of debt forgiveness?
The answer is simple: Capitalism started taking root in
Europe. Capitalism is an economic system where there's
peaceable, voluntary exchange. Government protects pri-
vate property rights held in goods and services. There's
rule of law and minimal government regulation and con-
trol of the economy.

A small byproduct
Not long ago I was eaves-
dropping on a couple of guys
who were discussing their an-
cestry. One of them said he
thought he might have some
Cherokee blood and if so, he
wondered if there were any
. benefits to that lineage. He
*lj ' said he might want to open a
S casino somewhere.
I tried to picture him as a
-* Native American. He had on
blue jeans, a slightly-soiled
Hawaiian flowerdy shirt, a
Dwain Walden sweat-stained baseball cap
which shaded a crew cut. He had a large tattoo on his arm.
So in keeping with the theme of the conversation, I tried
to put an Indian name on this character. The best I could
come up with was "Bubba Who Changes Oil Frequently."
When I was a kid, I always wanted to discover that I had
Indian blood in me. I've always had much respect for the
original inhabitants of our family farm. I collected arrow-
heads and. pieces of pottery and romanced the idea that
where I stacked peanuts, a young brave once faced down
a cougar with a spear. And except for a few inches of top-
soil gone, that I stood exactly where he stood.
Maybe if they sifted this very soil and did some DNA
analysis, they would find traces of blood from that cougar,.
or from that young brave - depending, of course, on how
that story ended.
Anyway, I found that both sides of my family came
from Ireland so there was little chance that I could put my
ear to the ground and tell how much change my dad had in
his overalls pocket.
There was Indian blood in my family by marriage. My
uncle Frank, who married my mom's oldest sister, came
from Lower Creek lineage.
When I watched cowboy and Indian movies, I always
found it interesting, how they chose names. Early on, I
don't think there were any Indians named Larry or Jeff.

that economic liberty and the wealth of a nation and its
peoples go together, not to mention greater human rights
guarantees.
Some economic development "experts" attribute
Africa's troubles to its history of colonialism. That's non-
sense, because some of the world's richest countries are
former colonies, such as the U.S., Canada, Hong Kong and
Australia. In fact, many of Africa's sub-Saharan countries
are poorer now than when they were colonies, and their
people suffer greater human rights degradations, such as
the mass genocide the continent has witnessed.
One unappreciated tragedy that attests to the wasted tal-
ents of its peoples is that Africans tend to do well all
around the world except in Africa. This is seen by the large
number of prosperous, professional and skilled African
families throughout Europe and the United States. Back
home, these same people would be hamstrung by their cor-
rupt governments.
The worst thing that can be done is to give more foreign
aid to African nations. Foreign aid goes from government
to government. Foreign aid allows Africa's corrupt
regimes to buy military equipment, pay off cronies and
continue to oppress their people. It also provides resources
for its leaders to set up "retirement" accounts in Swiss
banks.
What Africa needs, foreign aid cannot deliver, and that's
elimination of dictators and socialist regimes, establish-
ment of political and economic freedom, rule of law and
respect for individual rights. Until that happens, despite
billions of dollars of foreign aid, Africa will remain a bas-
ket case..

of eavesdropping
depicting a strength or an event.
My guess is, they had less trouble remembering names
than we do because of the word association. Take Buffalo
Hump. Now I wonder how he got that. name. Was it be-
cause he flung himself onto a charging buffalo and stabbed
it in the hump with his knife, or did he have a really bad
case of osteoporosis?
Then we have Crazy Horse. Probably he chose a pony
from the herd that only,he could ride. Or maybe he got into
the firewater one day, and when asked how much he had
to drink, he pawed the ground to add it all up.
Now obviously having names that describe an event
could have its drawbacks. Imagine 'singing "Happy Birth-
day" to One Who Finds Fresh Water. And if you've ever
tried to get your more conventional name on a little dotted
line on a government form - well, you can see the issue
here.
Now some of the Native Americans had shorter names
like, Cochise, Sitting Bull, Geronimo, Red Cloud, etc.
These were noted warriors and chieftains. Shorter names
were practical in that venue. Imagine a scout running back
to the war party all out of breath after having stumbled
across the 7th Cavalry.
"One Who Slays Bear With Knife! One Who Slays Bear
With Knife! One Who Slays Bear With Knife! Guess
who's coming up the canyon?"
Other than taking their land and adopting popcorn as a
great snack, the American settlers didn't embrace much
else from the Native Americans, especially the naming
process. There was just too much information involved.
I tried to imagine though, had we emulated such, it
might have gone a little like this during a field trip to the
U.S. Capitol.
"...And this is the office of Stands Tall Like A Redwood.
Over here 'is the office of Honest As Day Is Long. On

Retired Educators Association
(FREA) meeting in Orlando to
work on what we need to do in
order to reach our goals of im-

ucators in our local areas as
well as the state.
The 2005 FREA Annual As-
sembly and Convention met
May 25-27 at the Hilton Hotel
in St. Petersburg. In order to
get there easily a bus was
chartered. Retired educators
from all districts from Pen-
sacola to Gainesville were
picked up along the route on
Tuesday, May 24, so state offi-
cers would be able to go to the
executive meetings that night.
District 3 held their own


needs, goals and accomplish-
ments. Virginia West, the state
director, also met with us.
A banquet was held on
Thursday night with a great
band playing. District 3 mem-
bers spread out in order to
meet more retired educators
and enjoy.
The final meeting included
a memorial for all the educa-
tors who passed away during
the last year and presentation
of awards and plaques for all
nine districts in the state.
The educators greatly ap-
preciate The Suwannee Demo-
crat, Branford News and
Mayo Free Press for allowing
us to share about our retired
,educators. Thanks again!

Tahitian Noni ... ever
heard of it? Me neither ... un-
til my friends Suzanne and
Donald Bridge moved to
Wellborn several years ago. I
have since heard all about it
from Suzanne. It's promoted
as a health drink and is made
from the noni plant that
grows on the island of Tahiti.
Tahitian legend says drinking
the juice made from this plant
can help cure almost any
thing. Personally diet, caf-
feine-free Pepsi does the trick
for me, but then I am, after
all, a country girl at heart ...
unschooled in the more so-
phisticated ways of the world
when it comes to curing al-
most anything.
Suzanne sells Tahitian
Noni and, along with sister
Jacqueline Morosani, recent-
ly returned from a week-long,
all-expense-paid trip to the
worldwide convention for
Noni distributors. The con-
vention was in Salt Lake
City, Utah. They stayed at the


Grand American Hotel, got to
meet Noni distributors from
around the world, heard great
testimonies, ate delicious
foods and attended the final
celebration ... The Black
Pearl Convention Grand Ball.
Suzanne said they had a mar-
velous time.
The American Legion Post
(ALP) 132 of Wellborn in-
vites all veterans seeking
membership in a local ALP to
come and visit with ALP 132
members on the second Tues-
day of the month. They meet
at 7 p.m. at the Wellborn Ma-
sonic Lodge, located in

137. Anyone interested in

It's raining, it's pouring,
the old man is snoring ... you
know the rest. Mother Nature
is once again visiting her
wrath upon us and the season
has just begun with a boy
named Dennis. Which brings


me to this ...
When Dr. Minshuw, minis-
ter of Wellborn Baptist,
moved his family to Well-
born, Jinny Wilson asked him
to write an article of introduc-
tion to the community in the
Wellborn Whisper. Before
moving to Wellborn, Dr. Min-
shuw wrote, he and wife Car-
ol had been missionaries for
14 years, traveling to share
God's word to some of the
most remote areas of the
world. Their son Dennis was
born in Bulgaria and is seven
years old. Now anyone with
an active seven-year-old can
appreciate the words Dennis'
dad wrote in his article. Dr.
Minshuw said that he and
Carol had brought with them
the first Hurricane of the sea-
son and his name is Dennis. I
met Dennis when his mom
Carol brought him to visit my
shop and found him to be the
typical curious seven-year-
old, a handsome young boy
with beautiful brown eyes. He
went home with a large, beau-
tiful sea shell I gave him. I
showed him how to hold it up
to his ear so he could hear the
sound of the ocean. This past
week the ocean roared and
prophecy has been fulfilled.
. It's that time ... Pray for
our troops and their families,
help a neighbor, be kind to a
stranger, and tell those you
love you love them. God
bless.

N SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK


WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, 2005


A very special happy birth-
day to granddaughter Katie
Burnette who turns seven to-
day! Have a happy day, Katie!
Glad to know everyone sur-
vived Hurricane Dennis locally.
We did have a few scary mo-
ments with two tornadoes
touching down in Suwannee
County...one Saturday night
and one Sunday afternoon. Al-
though no one was injured, Ron
and June Moss suffered a huge
loss at their beautiful home.
June has put so much into her


yard and her wonderful home
but woke up Saturday night to
find a tornado has just passed
over and left a huge hole in the
roof and plenty of damage to
the house and dozens upon
dozens of trees demolished.
June said all of that is replace-
able, and she's grateful to God
that she and Ron's lives were
spared. Others in their neigh-
borhood lost some trees, some
lost a little more but no injuries
were reported. One mobile
home was empty when a tree


smashed across it. Another
family almost lost their caged
birds and did lose some trees
and had damage to their mo-
bile home...and the story goes
on. The tornado Sunday didn't
hit any homes, only some trees
across from Rosemary Baptist
Church.
If this past weekend is any
evidence of things to come this
hurricane season, I hope we are
all buckled down, groceries
that will come in handy when
the lights are out are pur-
chased, and plenty of sodas,
juice and water has been put
away in your pantry along with
the flashlights, battery operat-
ed radio and plenty of batter-
ies. I know we all pray that
God will have mercy and spare
all of us damage to our homes
and injury or loss of life in any
future hurricanes.
I saw an amazing thing dur-
ing the storm....no streets


flooded in downtown Live Oak!
I was shocked, but pleasantly
so. My compliments to Bob Far-
ley...the author of so many good
things in our great city of Live
Oak. Hey, it didn't even flood in
front of the Suwannee Democ-
rat although the new flood pre-
vention system is not complete-
ly done yet. I'm just not used to
this!
Please help us welcome
Vanessa Fultz to the Suwannee
Democrat. Vanessa is a recent
graduate of Valdosta State Uni-
versity Nx ith a degree in journal-
ism. We welcome Vanessa and
hope you will :make her wel-
come. Vanessa is married and is,
from Mad i son.. '
If you have some time Satur-
day morning, stop by the
Suwannee County Animal Con-
trol facility off US 129 on the
landfill road and enjoy free
food, a pet adopt-a-thon, music,
a live radio personality and
much, much more. All this is to
get you out there to adopt an an-
imal, get to our great facility and
encourage people to volunteer
and support the work that is be-
ing done there by a great staff.

Hurricane


Continued From Page 1A

no serious damage was done.
Episcopal youth groups from
Tallahassee and Jacksonville
assisting with the cleanup that
is expected to take about two
weeks, Chamberlain said.
The tornado then dipped
down among mobile homes
on Lundy Lane where several
mobile homes received dam-
age. One mobile home was
seen underneath an oak tree
that fell across the end of the
empty dwelling. Other resi-
dences suffered various de-
'grees of damage, mostly from
fallen trees in that area.
Wooley said about 10 min-
utes prior to the Wellborn tor-
nado, another one was spotted
in'the Suwannee Springs area
but it did not touch down and
went on into Madison County.
A third tornado dipped
down in the area west of Live
Oak along CR 249 Sunday af-
ternoon at about 5:15 p.m. in
front of Rosemary Baptist
Church. A report was called to
the Suwannee County Emer-
gency Operations Center by
an eyewitness who said it took
out some trees then skipped
the river into Hamilton Coun-
ty. Further investigation found
this summary to be correct
with no structural damages or
injuries to humans, according
to Wooley.
Wooley said the wet week-
end led to several accidents on
Interstates 10 and 75 but other-


wise the Suwannee County
Emergency Operations Center
(EOC) operated on partial acti-
vation for the duration of the
emergency. "All departments
checked in regularly because
we didn't need full activation
unless the county was going to
experience tropical force
winds," Wooley stated. That
never happened. As always,
the EOC and its personnel
were ready and on hand to
make sure the residents of
Suwannee County were safe.
Two Florida Highway Patrol
troopers were injured in acci-
dents on Interstate 75, one in
Columbia County and one in
Hamilton. County, Wooley
said. Trooper Brian Creech
was injured in Hamilton Coun-
ty when his patrol car with
flashing lights on was struck
from behind by a vehicle.
During the accident, two oth-
er crashes happened as a re-
sult. According to FHP,
Trooper Creech got out of his
vehicle and went to the fe-
male driver, 18-year-old
Brooks D. Tolbert of Warner
Robbins, Ga., and found her
in pain from injuries to her
face and foot and unable to
exit her vehicle and move to
safety. Trooper Creech, in-
jured himself, picked her up
and carried her off the travel
lanes of 1-75 to safety. Both
Trooper Creech and Tolbert
were later taken to the hospi-
tal for treatment of their in-
juries, FHP said.

FROM THE PAGES OF THE WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5, 1983 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT


Pioneer turns 90


Bulldogs take state wrestling crown
..-


All things considered, the dapper
gentlemen with the silken white hair and
morning-sky blue eyes owes a debt of
gratitude to the persistence of his uricle
D.O. Henry.
One hot day, while young J.D. Henry
was out planting in the hardscrabble
fields of his father's farm in Tennessee,
uncle D.O.-Henry was bending the ear of
J.D.'s father under the old shade tree.
Eventually, D.O. Henry made J.D.'s
father promise to allow J.D. to live with
him in Live Oak for one year, in order to
get a little bit of an education.
"That was the greatest thing that ever
happened to me," J.D. Henry says
without hesitation.
Considering what he has done in 90
years, that's quite a conviction. But con-
sidering his destiny had he remained with
his five brothers and sisters in Tennessee,


J.D. Henry and J.D. Henry Jr.


it's easy to see that coming to Live Oak in
1908 at the age of 15 opened boundless
vistas for the poor country farmer's son.
"We grew corn, tobacco and Irish
potatoes.," Henry recalled, almost as if he
were taking inventory. "We had plenty to
eat. We worked six days a week and went
to Sunday School and church on Sundays.
We were just plain country folks."
The man who has lived the history of
Live Oak celebrated his 90th birthday
last Tuesday. He was given a party by his
son, J.D. Henry Jr., his wife Billie and
their two daughters Elise and Patricia.
Henry was apprehensive about the par-
ty, worried that no one would come. But
200 did, to honor the man who has pro-
bably garnered more awards than even he
can remember.
Henry was named in 1974 the first Paul
Harris Fellow in the Live Oak Rotary
Club. He has been a Mason since 1917,
served on the Selective Service Board
from 1942 to 1967, served in France dur-
ing World War I, was president of the
Rotary Club in 1928 and served as
secretary-treasurer of the First United
Methodist Church for 40 years, stepping
down in 1959.
But the greatest honor he has ever
received, he said, was after the church
basement was gutted five years ago by a
fire.
When 'he renuvat ion was complete, the
congregation named the new room the
J.D. Henry Fellowship Hall, honoring he
and his wife Elise, who had been a
member of the church since 1905.
Elise died three years ago, on Dec. 21.
Henry met Elise Haile in high school in
1910. From that day forward, other
women became invisible to him.
"She was the only one I ever looked
at," Henry said. "I married her in 1919
when I came home from World War I. We
had J.D. Jr. in 1928."
Henry began his merchandising career
at the Wortl 'Stephens Co.; which was
located downtown in the building which
eventually housed the Pic 'N Save store.
The owners of the store were some of
the original cotton buyers in the county.
Henry worked on Saturdays from 7
a.m. until midnight. He was paid $1.
"I can remember on Saturdays, wagons
would be half a block deep waiting to be
unloaded," Henry said.


LeDew, Board battle on


For those who don't have the
time to watch soap operas but
still enjoy following the trials
and tribulations of others,
there is the relationship bet-
ween the. Suwannee County
School District and former
school administrator Thomas
LeDew.
LeDew began 1982 by hav-
ing his position eliminated by
the Suwannee County School
Board* He then instigated a
Suwannee County grand jury
investigation, of the district.
LeDew then requested and was
supposed to receive unemploy-
ment compensation. He re-
quested reinstatement - which
he didn't get, and is now suing
in federal court the school
board and Superintendent
Frank Stankunas.
In a classic tale of friendship'
gone sour, Stankunas and
LeDew were once close pals
who supported one another
through elections and job pro-
blems.
LeDew worked for and finan-
cially backed Stankunas' 1980
election bid.
When Stankunas was
elected, LeDew was appointed
director of lunchroom services,
personnel, certification and the


beginning teacher program.
While there were whispers of
inadequacy on the job, LeDew
maintained his position until
February when some
maneuverings by the school
board led to the elimination
of LeDew's position and thus
his job.
This occurred at a meeting
when Stankunas was out of
town. When he returned the
battle heated up.
Stankunas vowed to fight for
LeDew, either getting his old
position back or creating a new
one. The board, he said, had no
authority to eliminate LeDew's
position.
By March, Stankunas made
an abrupt about- face and re-
quested LeDew's resignation
for gross insubordination."
The cause of this insubor-
dination was LeDew's discus-
sion with Live Oak State At-
torney Jerry Blair about the
possibility of having a county
grand jury investigation into
alleged school board il-
legalities.
LeDew tendered his resigna-
tion, reportedly after a heated
argument with Stankunas.
A grand jury was eventually
called and cleared the school


board of illegal activity,
although it did find some pro-
cedural discrepancies.
LeDew filed for and got
unemployment compensation
of $125 a week for one year on
July 6. Stankunas, alone at the
meeting while LeDew reported-
ly had a lawyer and board
member Ed Smith to support
him, bolted from the hearing
because LeDew claimed he was
fired.
Smith has come to the
defense of LeDew several times
at meetings, visibly irritating
Stankunas.
The question of unemploy-
ment compensation is now
under appeal by the board and
LeDew is not receiving any
compensation,
LeDew then dropped another
bomb on the school board and
Stankunas this fall when he fil-
ed suit in federal court against
them.
Job reinstatement and
monetary, damages are re-
quested in the suit.
School Board attorney.
William Slaughter said he will
represent both the board and
Stankunas for the time being
and added the case could span
several years.


County loses commissioner


Suwannee County was sad-
dened for the second time in
four months when it was an-
nounced that County Commis-
sioner Francis Lynn "Jabo"
Johnson died of cancer on Sun.,
Jan. 10.
Johnson, 51, the District 3
commissioner, had been re-
elected to his third term in
1980.
:District 2 County Commis-
sioner Mark E. Chauncey died
of lung cancer on Sept. 24,
1981.
Johnson, a Luraville farmer,
had undergone knee surgery in
July, 1981. Later that summer,
after being thrown from a
horse, he began to have chest
pains, his wife recalled.


Johnson learned he had cancer
on Oct. 22.
Johnson was remembered
fondly by his fellow commis-
sioners.
"I could always depend on
him," Commissioner Claude
McDonald said.
"The biggest thing I liked
was that if he .told you
something, you didn't need his
signature, Commissioner
Hansel "Bubba" Ross added.
On Feb. 1, Gov. Bob Graham
appointed Verneil Johnson to
serve as the District 3 commis-
sioner until the September
primary election.
According to Florida Law,
because there were more than
24 months remaining in
Johnson's term when he died,


the appointee could only serve
until the next-election.
Mrs. Johnson was picked
from a list of five candidates
sent to the Governor's Office
by the Governor's Advisory
Committee for Suwannee
County.
Those seeking the appoint-
ment in addition to Mrs.
Johnson were Ivie Fowler, Jim
Senterfitt, James Franklin
Hingson and Donald Lan-
caster.
Mrs. Johnson chose to run
for the seat herself in
September. Lancaster and
Fowler were eliminated in the
primary. Mrs. Johnson went on
to defeat Marcus Durham in
the runoff.


The Suwannee grapplers became State Champions In 1982.
-i�eiir-,' to present the state trophy to Coach David Laxton, Prin-


1982 was nearly "S" perfect.
for the rappers of Suwannee
High School.
Losing only one duel meet,
that to Bishop Kenny High
School, the grapplers went on
to win the District, Region II
and Slate Class 3A titles ont
successive weekends.

secutive district title on Feb. 6.

County gets potted


'F $ ,


Cashing in

Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents display some of the more than $500,000 in
cash confiscated from a July 9 maria uana sting operation, the biggest of its kind in Suwannee
County and the region. The money, if those arrested are convicted, will be split between several
law enforcement agencies.,.


.It was a wonderful year for
Suwannee County law en-
forcers and a not-so-good year
for area drug growers and
sellers.
The crowning jewel for the
law community was a dazzling
summer sting operation that
netted the Suwannee County
Sheriff's Department and the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) more
than $500,000 in cold, hard
cash.

Arrested were four men,
none from Florida, who alleged-
ly thought they were going to
buy 10,000 pounds of pot as
the first installment in a $6.9
million, 30,000 pound deal.
After a month-long in-
vestigation by undercover
FDLE agents, two of the alleg-
ed buyers went to a stash site
at Sheriff Robert Leonard's
home and, after the previously
confiscated pot was displayed,
agents came out of the woods
and made the arrests.
Two others were arrested
near 1-75 while they were
allegedly waiting to help
transport the pot.
Before the prying eyes of,
-television cameras, jail in-,
mates, courthouse employees,
librarians and curious
onlookers, agents opened two
suitcases in the parking lot of
the Suwannee County Jail,
revealing more cash than most
people see in three lifetimes.
, Arrested and pleading not


guilty were Steven Oswald, 29,
of Minniesota; Kurt Calabrese,
32, of Illinois; Karl Owens, 25,
of Georgia and Harold Hennis,
34, of Illinois.
* The men have yet to stand
trial.
While that bust was certain-
ly the most spectacular made
by law enforcers this, year, it
was not the only one that kept
area authorities busy.
Other busts, some through
sting operations, were made
and Live Oak State Attorney's
investigator Al Williams was
in the air spotting a number of
pot fields which were later dug
up.
In the courtroom, one of the
longest, most complicated and
potentially expensive drug
trials in the county finally
came to an end with the convic-
tion of several men for drug
smuggling activities.
If residents had never heard
of RICO -- Racketeer Influenc-
ed Corrupt Organization Act --
before last year, they probably
have by now.
The efforts of defense
lawyers, who filed endless mo-
tinns challenging everything
trom the jurisdiction of the air
over Florida to the judge
presiding over the case even-
tuallv paid off as their clients
were allowed to plead no con-
test to substantially reduced
charges in return for short jail
sentences and heavy fines.
The men were originally in-
dicted by a statewide grand


jury for 13 counts of drug
smuggling activity in violation
of the RICO act.
When it was over, the judge
who list presided over the case
-- there were three in all -- said
the case should set an example
on how not to prosecute
suspected RICO violators.
Pleading no contest to the
charges were Billy Dekle,
Michael Hudson, Thomas Stin-
son and Lathan Nelson, all of
Lake City, and Jorge Santos
Abuchabie of Colombia.
In the biggest growing find
of the year, the sheriff's depart-
ment in October unearthed 256
high-quality sinsemilla plants
and arrested Joe Hughes
Green, 40, of Wellborn.
The greenhouse pot farm had
been spotted by Williams and
yielded about 550 pounds of
cannibis.
To close out the year,
Sheriff's Deputy Jesse Tucker
wastold by a confidential in-
formant that some pot was bei,
ing unloaded at a McAlpin
airstrip.
Although on vacation at the
time, Tucker arrived in
McAlpin la lind .it-1
ting in a truck with
about 600 pounds of pot which
they had allegedly just flown
into the county.
Arrested were Charles Ray
Baldwin, 40, of Pensacola, and
Brian John Hirst, 22, of
Hollywood.
Seized was the pot, a Cessna
aircraft and a truck.

Suwannee wrestling has taken over the
area. Eight Suwannee wrestlers made First
Team All-Area, four made Second Team.
The only weight class Suwannee did not fill
on the two teams was the 103 class. The
Dogs had a representative from Suwannee
wrestling on either First Team or Second
Team in every other weightclass. It's a great


honor to be named to one of these teams. It
means that wrestler is the best in his weight-
class in the area.
It was a good year for the Dogs. Suwannee
took Runner-up in the State this year and
went undefeated during regular season dual
meets. The eight wrestlers listed on the First
Team All-Area were Lee.Laxton in the 145
weightclass, Caleb Wainwright in the 119
weightclass, Preston Hart in the 160 weight-
class, Barney Wainwright in 130, David
Sanders in 125, Peter Kyne in 135, Greg


Boyle in 152 and Kris Kerns in 275. All
eight of- these Suwannee wrestlers made
First Team All-Area.
Coach David Laxton was named Coach of
the Year for the 2005 season. Laxton re-
ceived this honor in the first year of his re-
turn to Suwannee High as the head wrestling
coach. Laxton took over the team and led-it
to state runner-up.

It was frying-pan hot as the Summer
Dogs took on Columbia County's summer
team Thursday, July 7 in Lake City. The
sun baked the field and the players wilted.
Suwannee split, the double-header with
Columbia, taking the first game 10-9 and
losing game two 0-3.
The high point of game one was Ross


Aretino's 18th home run of the summer
season. The homer came in the bottom of
the third inning. It was a grand slam,
adding four runs to Suwannee's tally,
making the total score 10-2..
Michael Keene started on the mound for
Suwannee in the blazing heat. Keene gave
up two runs in the second inning and was
relieved by Aretino in the fifth. Columbia
wailed on Aretino, chalking up six runs.

Protect yourself from swimmer's ear
Swimmer's ear, a painful infection of the outer ear canal, is seen most
often during the warm, summer months. Frequent exposure to excess ear
moisture makes the ear more likely to become infected. Bacteria and even
fungi can flourish in this damp environment. This can set up an infection
that causes irritation, itching, and swelling. In some cases, there is severe
pain that can worsen when the ear lobe or external part of the ear is
touched or pulled upon. Minor injury to the ear canal from scratching can
make the infection worse or make one more likely to develop swimmer's
ear.
Dropping a few drops of rubbing alcohol into the external ear canal
immediately after swimming or using ear plugs can be effective. Once the
symptoms have started, a person should avoid swimming and see their
doctor. Acetic acid eardrop products like Domeboro or Acetasol can make
the car less desirable for organism growth. In severe cases, swelling can
accompany other symptoms. Acetasol HC, another formulation, includes
hydrocortisone to reduce swelling and inflammation. Several products
exist to help with symptoms. If you need assistance, ask the pharmacist
who is usually familiar with these products. 179965-F

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: What does the dentistry emblem
represent?
A: The American Dental Association
adopted the emblem, or insignia, it uses
in 1965. The black triangle is actually
the Greek letter delta, standing for the
first letter of the word 'dentistry.' The
gold '0' is the Greek letter omicron,
standing for odont, or tooth. In the
insignia's center, a serpent coils around
an ancient Arabic cautery, a hot iron
that would be used to sear tissue and
stop bleeding. The serpent represents
Aesculapius, the Greek god of
medicine. In the design's background
are 32 leaves and 20 berries,
representing, respectively, the
permanent and temporary teeth. The
background color is lilac, which is the
profession's adopted color. It was
adopted, by the way, in 1987 and now
shows up on graduation caps and
gowns and numerous other
paraphernalia associated with the
profession. It is an emblem that, when
you see it, should remind you of the
training and collective wisdom that
today's dentists bring to their work.

One Dozen
Hurricane Season
Tips
1. Following a power out-
age, unplug all of your large
appliances and electronics to
prevent power surges when
electricity is restored, which
can often damage equipment
and create fire hazards.
2. Remember the "three
don't" when using genera-
tors: don't run a generator in
the house; don't run a gener-'
ator in the garage; and, don't
plug the generator directly
into your home's main elec-
trical system. The first two
can lead to asphyxiation and \
the third can send an electri-
cal charge back into the pow-
er grid, posing an electrocu-
tion hazard to utility work-
ers.
3. If your home is flooded,
turn off your electrical power
until a professional inspects
it thoroughly.
4. If you smell gas, evacu-
ate immediately and contact
your gas company's emer-
gency number. ,
5. Make sure you have
current identification. You
may have to pass through
identification checkpoints
before being allowed access
to your home or neighbor-
hood.
6. After the storm, check
to see if your home's weath-
erhead is damaged - it is lo-
cated above the electric me-
ter. Utility workers cannot
reconnect service if this
piece of equipment - which
is ihe home, ner's responsi-
bility - is damaged. If your
weatherhead needs repair,
please contact a licensed
electrician.
7. Utilities ofteir cannot
respond to customers with
special needs during or im-
mediately after a storm.
When warned of an incoming
storm, make an early deci-
sion to evacuate people with
special needs. Know the lo-
cation of special needs shel-
ters in case you are unable to
evacuate. If you or someone
in your family has special
electrical medical equipment
needs, notify your electric
utility prior to a storm's ar-
rival.
8. Visit www.FloridaDis-
aster.org to determine your
hurricane evacuation route.
9. Capture water in your
water heater by turning off
power to the unit and closing
the water valves. If you lose
water pressure, you will have
about 40 gallons of fresh wa-
ter stored in the tank. Store
additional water in your
bathtub and fill the washing
machine with water. This wa-
ter supply can be used for
cleaning or to operate your
toilet.
10. Clear your patio and
yard of lawn furniture, toys,
potted plants, and other de-
bris that could blow around
in high winds and cause
damage or injury.
11. Prior to the storm,
identify the places around
your home where to shut off
your gas, water and electrici-
ty. In an emergency, you'll
want to be able to turn them
off quickly.
12. Create a hurricane sur-

"After last year's devasta-

preparation for a storm can
be, as well as using caution
during and after," said Barry
Moline, executive director
of FMEA. "We strongly en-
courage Floridians to use
these tips. They will help
protect the lives of loved
ones and make life a little
easier to bear if a hurricane
strikes again."
-- FMEA's extraordinary ef-
forts in the aftermath of last
year's four Florida hurri-
canes provided a showcase
for the emergency response
of municipal electric utili-
ties both large and small.
Utilizing the network of 32
Florida municipal utilities
(now 33 with the June 1,
2005, addition of the City of
Winter Park), FMEA mem-
bers worked together to help
one another rebuild their lo-

How to be a

healthy

vegetarian
People become vegetarians for an array of reasons. Some are
against the use of animals for food. Some do it to lose weight.
Some cite health reasons, as studies show vegetarianism can
prevent some types of cancer, high blood pressure and heart
disease. Others adopt the lifestyle for religious reasons. And
some people who just don't like meat decide to give it up
altogether.

Regardless of the reasons for becoming a vegetarian, it's
important to still maintain a healthy diet. Since many vegetarians
do not eat any meat, including chicken, beef, pork or fish (some
eat animal products like eggs, milk or bees' honey), it's crucial
for them to eat fruits, vegetables and whole grains to get the right
amount of vitamins and nutrients. They should also avoid an
overload of eggs, cream, butter, cheese and other milk products
with high fat contents. Sources of protein like nuts and seeds are
also high in fat if consumed in large quantities. But by adhering
to some guidelines, it is possible to maintain a healthy vegetarian
lifestyle.

Milk: If you drink dairy products, choose fat-free milk. If you
use soy milk, drink a reduced fat, fortified version.

Cheese: Eat cheese sparingly, and when you do eat it, opt for
low-fat versions.

Fruits and vegetables: Eat as much food as possible in the raw
state since fruits and vegetables lose many nutrients during
cooking.

Protein: Since you aren't eating meat, you have to get your
protein in other ways, .Legumes,
tofu and tempeh will fill the
void. You can have nuts and
seeds like almonds, hazelnuts,
sesame seeds, sunflower seeds
and pumpkin seeds. Just don't
eat more than a handful a day.

Snacks: Munch on snacks like
fruit, raw vegetables or dried
fruit. Avoid ones that are high
in fat or sugar.




of mayonnaise, sour .
cream, butter or .
margarine.


Zinc: Whole grains,
fortified cereals, soy
foods and: legumes
can give you this
vitamin, which
promotes growth and
a healthy immune
system.

Iron: Iron is good for .
the blood. It is found in
beans, seeds, soy foods,
fortified breakfast
cereals and dark green
leafy vegetables like
spinach and kale.

Calcium: Calcium builds
absorb iron. Look to citrus
dairy products, dark green
foods for calcium.


strong bones and helps the body
fruits like oranges and grapefruits,
leafy vegetables and fortified soy


Vitamin D: Build strong bones from fortified dairy products and
soy milk.

Lightning Season is here, and you need
our protection:

SURGE PROTECTION PROGRAM: This V /
program is aimed at helping to protect members
homes and sensitive electronic equipment from j .
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.

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
suppresses 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.

Suwannee Valley Electric is owned by those we serve. 179384-F

healthy lawns often overlooked


By Jim King
(ARA)
Across Ameri-
ca, nearly 20 .
million acres of ,'
lawns provide a --
soft landing for ' .
kids at play, a
blanket for fam-
ilies to picnic
and a cushion
for bare feet to
roam.
Yet the great-
est benefit of
healthy grass --
what it means to
the environment
-- is one that is
nearly always
overlooked. In- - ''5 "
deed, turf is
about much .%-,,.
more than aes-
thetics. For
most of subur-
ban America,
it's the founda-
tion of the
neighborhood's . . .
ecosystem.
"As a society '. .!
we tend to take .
the benefits of
grass for grant- '"
ed," says Jim
Beard Ph.D., '
one of Ameri- n -
ca's leading turf 0 *1.
experts and the *; '
chief scientist at
the International
Sports Turf In-
stitute. "Be-
cause it's
around us every day, people
don't think about the fact that
a healthy turf generates oxy-
gen for improved air quality
and controls runoff and ero-
sion. Most homeowners don't
.realize noise and air pollution
are reduced in most suburban
areas because the grass
ecosystem serves as a natural
filter ..for . the .,environment.,
The.,scientif.c. eyidenceLcijr-
ly shows that a healthy subur-
ban lawn is good for the envi-
ronment."
Specifically, Beard and oth-
er scientists say a healthy
lawn provides the following
environmental benefits:
* Clean air: Grass not only
creates oxygen but improves
the quality of the environ-
ment by removing pollutants
and other particles from the
atmosphere.
* Decomposes organic pol-
lutants: Turf organisms are
active in the decomposition
of organic waste and hydro-
carbons, which leads to soil
improvement.
* Lessens global warming:
Grass can absorb and, se-
quester carbon dioxide green-
house gases.


" " . .


16


* Cooling: Lawns have
substantial cooling effect via
evaporation.
* Noise filter: Grass and
other ornamentals help ab-
sorb sound, potentially reduc-
ing noise pollution in some
areas by 20 to 30 percent.
Perhaps the benefits of turf
are largely unnoticed since
the suburban lawn as we
'know ittoday is.a relatively
new phenomenon. At the turn
of the 20th century, lawns --
where they existed. -- were
the product of sweepings
from haymow and were filled
with weeds that were diffi-
cult, if not impossible, to
control. But in 1907, an
Ohio-based, entrepreneur
named O.M. Scott began of-
fering grass seed by mail that
was relatively weed-free for
its time. It wasn't until the
1920s that Scott began sell-
ing grass seed in retail stores.
O.M. Scott's small-town
operation eventually became
The Scotts Company, which
is still based within a few
miles of its origins in
Marysville, Ohio. The com-
pany, now 136 years old, has
grown to become the world's


largest marketer of branded
products for consumer lawn
and gardens.
Throughout its history, the
company has continued to in-
novate and has developed
grasses that are easier to
grow, more resistant to dis-
ease, tolerant of drought and
virtually free of weeds.
Scott' other innovations in-
clude the first controlled re-
lease-lawn fertilizer, first pest
control product for lawns and
the first lawn spreader.
"It's true that most home-
owners are making large in-
vestments in their lawns be-
cause they take pride in the
beauty associated with
them," said Dr. Karl Dan-
neberger. a professor of Hor-
ticutltue and Crop Science at
The Ohio State Uriiversity.
"But it's important for home-
owners to know that the beau-
ty they're creating actually is
helping to support the envi-
ronment."
Turf scientists say one of
the best ways to achieve these
benefits is to maintain healthy
turf, which means feeding it
on a regular basis with a fer-
tilizer that contains nitrogen,


Drug-free relief for allergy season


. (ARA) - As retailers pull al-
lergy and cold medicines con-
taining pseudoephedrine off
store shelves to help stop the
production of the illegal drug
methamphetamine, consumers
are looking for other ways to al-
leviate their allergy symptoms.
Dr. Diane Heatley, a Madi-
son, Wis., ear, nose and throat
physician says, "There are
several alternative ways to


help treat itchy nose, sneezing
and sinus congestion this time
of year without the use of
drugs."
Dr. Heatley suggests the fol-
lowing:
Maintain a sensible/well-
balanced diet -- A balanced
diet refers to the intake of ap-
propriate types and adequate
amounts of foods and drinks to
supply nutrition and energy

for the maintenance of overall
body health. According to the
U.S. Dietary Guidelines
(RDA), there are three guide-
lines to follow in order to
maintain a healthy diet: Eat
three meals a day, do not skip
breakfast and follow a sensible
eating plan.
Exercise regularly -- For the
greatest overall health bene-
fits, 20 to 30 minutes of aero-
bic activity three or more
times a week is recommended.
Additionally, some type of
muscle strengthening ,activity
and stretching at least twice a
week is also important to over-
all body health.
Wash your nose -- Call it
spring cleaning for your nose.
A scientifically-proven reme-
dy that is gaining popularity
for sinus congestion and aller-
gies is also one of the oldest: A
warm saltwater rinse of the
nasal passages called nasal
wash. The drug-free treatment
can be used as often as needed
and is recommended after ex-
posure to known allergens. For
example, one should wash
their nose after mowing the
lawn if allergic to grass. Visit
http://www.sinucleanse.com
for more information.


Reduce exposure to dust
mite allergens -- Keep uphol-
stered furniture and carpet to a
minimum in your, home. En-
case your mattress, box
springs and pillows in wash-
able zippered encasings. Use
an air purifier to help control
odors, dust, pollen, mold and
other bacteria. If you are ex-
posed to these allergens, try
washing your nose immediate-
ly.
Reduce exposure to pollens
-- Stay indoors during peak
pollen allergy seasons. You
can research pollen counts in
your. area by visiting
www.pollen.com. Keep win-
dows and doors closed; all that
fresh air can aggravate your
symptoms. Caulk and seal
windows and replace filters on
air conditioning systems to
stop pollen and dust filtration.
"In addition to helping to re-
lieve allergy symptoms, alter-
native treatments will not have
the side effects that come with
some OTC drugs," says Dr.
Heatley. "Alternative reme-
dies can also be beneficial for
allergy sufferers who don't
like the idea of taking medi-
cine."

Schmenk, director of Envi-

Scotts Company. "We cer-
tainly don't want to see the
environmental benefits of
healthy lawns diminished by
improper use of our products

Schmenk urges homeown-

instructions for both the use
and storage of fertilizers and
other lawn and garden prod-
ucts. Homeowners who are

Dear Classified Guys,
I'm an avid fan of the TV show,
Extreme Makeover Home Edition, but
building a house in seven days, let's
be real. If you want to call it a reality
show, feature a couple trying to build
it by themselves within seven years!
I've been staring at an unfinished
edition to our house since we started
it in 1998. We'd love to hire a general
contractor with a crew of 300 to fin-
ish it, but who can afford that?
Maybe if we opened a lemonade
stand on the corner, we could raise
$50,000 from the neighbors
to help out. Do you guys N-- 1
have any realistic thoughts (72..J
on how to hire a contractor
to finish what we started? i

Carry: That better be some really
good lemonade to raise $50,000.
Cash: I'm guessing that's why they
call the show "extreme". Where else
would someone be happy when 300
screaming people showed up on their
doorstep with sledgehammers?
Carry: As you've determined in the
past seven years, adding an addition can
be an overwhelming task, especially
when you take it on yourself.
Cash: There are a lot of options on
how to proceed with the construction,


THE

CLASSIED.






Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


W' 7/10/05
@2005 The Classified Guys�


but all of them depend on how you
budget for the project. The first thing
you might do is determine your finances
and cash flow for finishing the project.
Carry: Since you started the renova-
tion yourself, we assume you have the
skills to finish it. However after seven
years, it's probably more difficult to find
the motivation. Once you've set a budg-
et for completing the project, your next
step may surface. If you find you have
enough money, you can hire a general
contractor to finish the entire job.
Cash: More likely though, your
budget may reveal your need to finish
the project using a combination of hired
services and your hard work. You can


do some of the work as time permits
and hire a professional to finish jobs
that are time consuming or overwhelm-
ing.
Carry: For instance, we both try to
avoid finishing sheetrock. We don't
mind hanging the wallboard, but when
it comes to spackling, we find it quicker
to hire the professionals.
Cash: As your own general contrac-
tor, you can organize the time line of
when projects need to be accomplished
and then hire the appropriate service for
each of the jobs.
Carry: And just think, when the job
is done, you'll have more time to enjoy
all that lemonade.


How'd They Do That?
According to Newsweek Magazine,
the producers of "Extreme Makeover
Home Edition" have added a twist to the
story to help homeowners with the tax
burden of receiving such a large prize.
The show leases the participants' homes,
paying $50,000 for 10 days' rental. Since
the IRS allows tax-free rentals of less
than 15 days, the homeowners avoid the
taxes on the $50,000. And by renting the
home, the producers believe the renova-
tions are tax-free under a "leaseholder
improvement" loophole that allows them
to make non-taxable renovations while
renting. So that's how they do that!
Think Big
According to the Guinness Book of
World Records, the most expensive house
ever built is called Hearst Castle in
California. William Randolph Hearst
started its construction in 1922 and fin-
ished in 1939, costing more than $30 mil-
lion. Today that's equivalent to over $276
million. The estate has over 90,000 sq. ft.
of living space including 56 bedrooms, 41
fireplaces, 61 bathrooms and 19 different
sitting rooms. And we thought it was dif-
ficult to keep our houses clean.

Living Large
I am a store clerk at one of those
huge home improvement centers and
I'm constantly amazed at how crazed
people are about fixing up their
homes.
Last weekend, I watched one couple
come in and pick out all sorts of high-
end items. The woman hunched over
the carriage as her husband went crazy
looking through the aisles.
"We can add crown molding," he
said. "Oh wow," he continued, "How
about hardwood floors?" Then I could'
tell his wife had finally had enough.
As she reached into the carriage to
put stuff back, she corrected her hus-
band, "Honey what's wrong with you?
We're just building a tree house for
SBobby!" (Thanks to Jason P)

For dessert with a built-in "wow" factor, give it a swirl! When you use these new milk
chocolate morsels swirled with caramel or peanut butter and semi-sweet chocolate morsels
swirled with white chocolate, you can make edible works of art all your own.
With a package of Swirled morsels on hand, you can use them just like semi-sweet chocolate
chips in dessert recipes of all kinds. But let your inner artist come out! Dress up your peanut butter
cookies with chocolate and peanut butter swirls. Make your bar cookies or cakes even more deca-
dent with chocolate and caramel swirls. Give chocolate and vanilla cheesecakes or other creamy
desserts a "black tie" sophistication with semi-sweet chocolate and white chocolate swirls.
Customize cakes, cookies or brownies from a mix when you stir these morsels into the batter
and create your own swirled polka dot design on the top. Make your favorite homemade or chef-
style desserts look just as fabulous as they taste with a sweet swirl of magical chocolate.
