Tax holiday for consumers
Vanessa Fultz. 1;


Democrat Reporter
Parents, get the kids dressed and buckled
down in the car - it's time to go school
shopping.
Governor Jeb Bush and the Florida Legis-
lature have declared a Sales-Tax Holiday for
Florida beginning this Saturday at 12:01
a.m. through midnight on July 31. Clothing,
shoes and books retailing for less than $50
per item and school supplies less than $10
per item are exempt from sales tax. There is
no cap on the amount consumers may spend.
All students, including college students will
benefit.


Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
Suwannee County
Commissioners have ten-
tatively set the millage
rate for the upcoming fis-
cal year of 2005-06 at 10
mills.
The commission may
reduce the millage rate
between now and Septem-
ber. However, because of


state statutes, they cannot
raise it above the tentative
rate once the tentative rate
has been set. In thc case
of Suwannee County, it
couldn't be raised anyway
because the millage is al-
ready set at the highest it
can go, 10 mills.
A tentative public hear-
ing on the millage rate is
set for Sept. 6 at 5:15

Tax


Continued From Page 1A

On school supplies, the tax
exemption covers items less
than $10 even if it's the same
type of item. For example, if
you buy 10 notebooks total-
ing $10 or more, you'd still
receive the tax break, provid-
ed each individual notebook
was less than $10. This does-
n't include items that are
packaged together. The same
is true for clothes, shoes and
books.
Consumers can also take
advantage of layaway. Pro-
vided they purchase eligible
items during the Sales-Tax


Holiday, they will not be
charged with tax even if they
pay off layaway after the
holiday. Customers can also
purchase eligible items with
a valid gift certificate re-
gardless of when the certifi-
cate was purchased. Howev-
er, items purchased with a
gift certificate that is pur-
chased during the tax holi-
day are taxable after the hol-
iday.
Julie Jacobs, Live Oak
Wal-Mart store manager,
said they usually get a huge
response. She thinks giving
parents a tax break is
tremendously helpful.

"The expenses of putting
children through school can
be great," Jacobs said. "Just a
little help with these expens-
es is greatly appreciated."
. Beall's Outlet customers
Leslie Sardo and daughter
Olivia take advantage of the
tax holiday each year.
"I have to because I have
two daughters to buy school
clothes for," Leslie Sardo
said. "I can get myself some
work clothes, too."
Leslie Sardo said that in the
past .the Tax-Free Holiday has
been well worth it for her
family because she is able to
buy a couple of extra outfits
with the savings. During the
last tax exemption period she
recalls spending about $500
and saving about $70-$100.
The Tax-Free Holiday in-
cludes exemption from state
and local sales tax, which


means consumers will save $7
for every $100.,The nine-day
tax break on books and school
supplies is expected to gener-
ate $38 million in savings for
Floridians.
The tax break for Georgia is
set for July 28-31. Tax-free
items include clothing and
shoes retailing less than $100
per item and school supplies
less than $20 per item.

Recent flooding caused
by rainfall from Hurricane
Dennis has prompted

Management District to
close the following prop-
erties--Steinhatchee Falls,
Steinhatchee River public
access points, L. A. Ben-
nett Road (South Canal
Road) from SR 51 to the

county bought for the current
year but this fiscal year's bid is at
a higher price.
The new policy bid by BCBS
will cost the county $302.87 for
employees who take the HMO
Plan 15 or $280.33 for those
who choose the PPO Plan 317.
Retirees who have the health in-
surance will pay the same as the
county pays for its employees.
Harrison said Wayne Ed-
wards of Edwards Insurance
Agency, who had the second
lowest bid, based on an
AVMED plan, recommended
the county take the BCBS bid.
During a meeting on the insur-
ance bids last week, Edwards
said he believes the best thing
for the county to do is accept the
BCBS bid because he couldn't
meet the bid Parks Johnson
Agency, headed by Tyson John-
son, had submitted.
Edwards said at the commis-
sion meeting that while he had
the contract for nine years, the
county did bid it out three of


those nine years but didn't get a
lower bid than AVMED's be-
cause the bidders thought they
might not get the contract a sec-
ond year.
Commissioner Randy Hatch
argued the insurance compa-
nies caused the problem by not
getting the new fiscal year pro-
posed contract prices to the
board at an appropriate time for
the board to work those prices
into the next fiscal year's bud-
get. And, it was pointed out, the
county saved more than
$100,000 on the current year's
health insurance plan by bid-
ding it out.
Both Edwards and Johnson
suggested at the committee
meeting last week the county
may be hurting itself by bid-
ding the insurance
each year. They
said this keeps the
bids higher be-
cause insurance Employee o
companies don't (paid by cot
want to be left in Employee p
the hole if the Employee p
county goes to an- Employee p


other bidder the next year. They
both said at the committee
meeting that two or three year
contracts would be the best
way to get a lower bid.
County Commissioner Jesse
Caruthers said that last year
during the bidding for the coun-
ty's BCBS contract representa-
tives from insurance companies
told the board a two or three-
year contract wouldn't make
any difference in how the com-
panies bid.
When the board found out the
BCBS contract wasn't based on
the fiscal year, they reconsid-
ered their earlier vote for BCBS
and voted to table the matter un-
til the next meeting Aug. 2. The
board indicated it wants the con-
tract to agree with the county's

Suwannee Democrat's legal
advertisements in the B sec-
tion Wednesday, July 27.
Meanwhile, copies of the
proposed assessments are
available at the county of-
fices at 224 Pine Avenue in
Live Oak.
The County Commission
hired a law firm a year ago to
begin studying the county's
assessment ordinance. The
firm was asked to correct ex-
isting legal problems in the
ordinance and do a survey to
determine how to properly
assess all properties, includ-
ing open land, for fire as-
sessment, what would be as-
sessed and to notify property
owners of the impending fire
and solid waste assessment
changeo. As a result. 24.000
prgVprty o.wiers.in Suwan-'
nee County will begin -'re--
ceiving certified notices
from the county later this
month about the proposed
changes to the assessments
and the public hearing date
and time.
"The assessment is calcu-
lated using the established
rates by the Board of County
Commissioners and applying
those rates to the tax roll us-
ing the same Department of
Revenue Codes the Property
Appraiser and Tax Collector
use in reporting to the state
of Florida," County Coordi-
nator Johnny Wooley said.
"The non-ad valorem roll
will be prepared by the con-
sultants and not the Property


Appraiser or Tax Collector,"
Wooley said.
The base fire assessment
will be $45.91 per year for
residential (currently it's
$50) per dwelling. Buildings
not attached to a dwelling
will be assessed at nine cents
per square foot up to 40,000
square feet.
Hotels, motels and RV
parks will be assessed at
$164.82 yearly.
Property will be assessed
at $14.63 per year on open
land up to 160 acres. Proper-
ty 160 acres or more will be
assessed at 11 cents per acre,
plus the base rate of $14.63
for the first 160 acres, ac-
cording to Wooley.
"Over 50 percent of your
calls are on land," said
Heather Encinosa of Nabors,
Giblin and Nickersunt, .the
Tallahassee l a firm that has
been handling seeing up
these -assessments for the
county.
Commissioner Ivie Fowler
protested the way the assess-
ment is set up. He said he
will see a 250 percent in-
crease on a river lot he owns.
As it turns it, the total yearly
assessment for that lot will
be $14.63 under the pro-
posed new fire assessment.
Previously no assessment
was levied on the property
for fire protection.
"It's not too much when it
might benefit someone," said
Suwannee County Develop-
ment Authority Chairman
and local businessman Tim
Alcorn.


Suwannee County Tax Col-
lector George Burnham
pointed out there hasn't been
a fire assessment on agricul-
tural land previously "even
though they've been receiv-
ing the benefit." Burnham
questioned what it will cost
him for his eight chicken
houses that sits on 160 acres.
He was told that -Nabors,
Giblin and Nickerson can tell
all property owners what
their fire assessment will be.
If there are disputes, those
disputes will be handled by
Governmental Services
Group, an agency that works
with the law firm in conjunc-
tion with the county to make
all corrections and changes
once the proposed assess-
ment is finalized.
During this same meeting
the board voted to tentatively
,approve the Master. Service
Ordinance which authorizes
the county to collect assess-
ments for providing solid
waste 'and fire service. The
county also tentatively ap-
proved setting the solid waste
assessment at the 5-year av-
erage of $114.48 per year per
household. Once adopted af-
ter the final approval, the sol-
id waste fee can't be raised,
but can be lowered. It was
pointed out by Encinosa that
while it was originally
thought each household used
about two tons of solid waste
per year when the assessment
of $115 per year was set, it
was found the actual amount
is 1.03 tons per year per
household. This is turn led to

OPINION

Protecting Florida


from drillers and

developers
By US Senator Bill Nelson
Floridians have reason to be concerned'- and not just
about the threat of more storms this hurricane season.
We should be worried about oil drillers and property
developers because actions of the Congress and the
U.S. Supreme Court could leave the state vulnerable.
Earlier this summer, I helped win a hard-fought
agreement with Senate leadership to maintain a mora-
torium on oil and gas drilling off the coast of Florida.
It even includes a large area of the Gulf, known as
Lease Sale 181, that previously was unprotected by the
ban.
While we prevailed against the drillers in this in-
stance, Floridians must remain vigilant. Despite our
opposition, drilling proponents in the Senate were able
to get language in a broad energy bill that allows for an
inventory of oil and gas resources in the Gulf of Mexi-
co - widely considered a precursor to drilling. Such ef-
forts jeopardize Florida's $50-billion-a-year tourism
industry andi also encroach on milirar) pilot training
operations in %waters off our state.,
And beyond our beaches, I intend to help protect
Floridians' private property. A recent Supreme Court
decision expands the right of government officials to
force the sale of citizen's homes. Historically, the right
of eminent domain has been invoked for critical pro-
jects, such as roads and schools. Now the High Court
says officials can seize property for private economic
development projects, like building condominiums or
shopping centers.
I think our homes should be safe from the govern-
ment. And it's why I sponsored legislation aimed at
preventing the government from seizing Americans'
private property on behalf of developers.
We only can prepare and respond when Mother Na-
ture sets her sights on Florida. But when it comes to
drillers and developers, we can continue fighting to-
gether to protect our beaches and our homes.
Bill Nelson is the senior U.S. senator from Florida.

I did not intend to write the
Mayor's Corner this week.
However, with the issues that
have been raised concerning the
beer sales ordinance, I felt it
necessary to try to give some
explanation to this matter.
First, a "Memorandum of Un-
derstanding" addressing several
issues was presented to the
Council for consideration. Two


of these issues were the annexation and beer sales is-
sue. It was clearly understood that if the Memorandum
was not passed that the request for voluntary annexa-
tion would be withdrawn. The sale of beer on Sunday
is permitted under current county ordinance. They
would continue to operate under this current county or-
dinance and not annex into the city. I have had several
people comment that the City Council was trying to
keep this issue quiet and ho-do the public. This is not
true. Notice of these ordinances was properly and
legally noticed to the public in a newspaper of local
circulation. To say this about the Council is not fair.
Not one person came to either of the meetings and pub-
lic hearing to voice an opinion, much less opposition.
Several have stated that it should have been put in the
newspaper. Again, it was put in the paper as required
by law. I know that residents rely on our local newspa-
per to keep them informed but the newspaper is not
owned, operated or controlled by the city. The city
does not dictate what is or is not reported.
The city's interest in all of this is to expand the lim-
its of the city to the interstate exchange and beyond.
Our interest was to encourage economic prosperity to
our community. These businesses will provide more
jobs for our people. It will bring increased revenues
and a broader tax base to relieve our current residents
of some of the burdens now and later. Annexation can
only occur when properties to be annexed are "con-
tiguous" or next to a parcel that is already within the
corporate limits of the city. You can't just jump around
and pick out pieces of property to annex. If the proper-
ty in phase one is not annexed, then properties beyond
them cannot be annexed. Annexation of this area and
the other two areas proposed for annexation would be
dead.
Many have said that the developers are only interest-
ed in making a buck. I suppose that is why we spend
most of our adult life working, trying to make a buck.
I don't think this is being fair to them. These folks have
invested literally millions of dollars in this property. :If.
they don't make those bucks, their next step could very,
well be bankruptcy court.
Now, I will attempt to clear up some of the other
statements that I have heard. The ordinance does not
provide for the sale of hard liquor. It only provides for
the sale of alcoholic beverage with less than one per-
cent of alcohol by weight, what ever that means? I as-
sume it provides for the sale of beer and maybe even
wines if it meets the criteria. Only on-premises con-
sumption is allowed. No take outs. No, folks won't be


able to go into a convenience
store and purchase beer on Sun-
day. Sale is limited to businesses
having 750 square feet of service
area and equipped to serve at
least , 60 persons full course
meals at tables at one time. To
qualify, at least 51 percent of its
:gross revenues must be derived
from the sale of food and nonal-
coholic beverages. This ordi-


nance is the same ordinance the county passed last
year.
I'm not sure what the implications would be should
this ordinance be rescinded or overturned. It would
certainly open a messy and complicated can of worms.
The city may be liable for some sort of legal retribution
especially if contracts signed by them have been con-
summated based on the passage of the ordinance. The
"Memorandum Of Understanding" states that the de-
velopers would be entitled to recover costs and attor-
neys fees. Also, I think I could predict with a certain
degree of accuracy that the developers' would ask the
Council to rescind the annexation ordinance. They
would then be able to sell beer on Sunday under the
county ordinance. Annexation to that area would be
halted.
There are four options that can be pursued. The
Council can revisit the issue and draft another ordi-
nance nullifying the ordinance. The other three fall on
me. I can sign or veto the ordinance or let it become
law without my signature. According to the City Char-
ter, I have until the next regular council meeting to
make a decision.
Now, none of my previous discussion matters if I
base my decisiori strictly on my religious convictions.
I am burdened with the thought of the sale of alcohol
on the Lord's Day. Do I compromise my convictions
for what is perceived as being good for our communi-
ty? I can remember when grocery stores started selling
beer. The churches and many in our community were
up in arms. Many vowed to never shop in stores that
sold beer again. Today, few people probably think
about that. Do I or we compromise our convictions
when we pay our dollars to food establishments or gas ,
stations that sell beer or hard liquor on Sunday or any
other day? I have a real dilemma, don't I? Again, do I ,v
compromise my convictions and jeopardize some good -!'
things that could happen with annexation or do I affirm 3i
my personal convictions?,,As you can imagine, I have d
, spent some sleepless nights lately ponderimghis issue.
The purpose of all this.explanation is notto condone
or defend or to condemn or justify but to clarify this is-
sue. I have put my thoughts which have burdened my
heart to pen ahd paper so that hopefully you can un-
derstand what has and might happen with this issue.
Please try to stay in touch with what is going on in '^
your community. Contact your elected representatives
and or better still, come to the meetings so that your
voice can be heard before decisions are made. On your
way to City Hall, wear those seat belts.


OPINION

What I found in my mail today


Dwain Walden


Today I got a promo-
tional package from a
company that gives sug-
gestions to keep kids busy
during the "dog days" of
summer. I thought to my-
self, "hey that's a great
idea."
But then after reading
the recommendations, I
. . realized that I obviously
have passed through a
time warp or some kind of
terminology vortex. This
promotion listed things
like organizing pool par-


ties, day trips, video parties, movie outings, picnics and
mall trips.
Now I realize a lot of water has passed under the bridge
since I was a kid. And a lot of flotsam has lodged on the
pilings. The word "busy" here is spelled the same as back
then but the context seemingly has done what they call a
"one-eighty."
I don't want to be considered an old fogey yet. I think
kids ought to have some fun. I just initially perceived
"busy" to mean something other than complete playtime.
I have a question, if this is what will keep them busy
during "dog days," then what were they doing up until
then?
Nowhere in this promotion was there a mention of mow-
ing the grass, washing the car, vacuuming the house,
cleaning the garage or painting the utility shed, any one of
which I would have switched for hoeing peanuts, digging
sassafras out of the fence row and unloading a barn of to-
bacco at four in the morning.
Again, I know that latter part doesn't happen today, and
I'm not attempting to suggest that we bring it all back be-
cause times have changed and there just aren't that many
fence rows left.
I guess at some point in my ramblings I eventually
would use the term "old school" as those before me have.
And I want to be careful in doing so because I never had
to walk to school nor did I write on a slate. But the con-


cept of "busy" I think should still carry some. similar DNA
as back then. . .
Based on these new standards, I guess if they had
caught me I could have been charged with some form of
child abuse because I required my son to work at a pay-
ing job as soon as he was legally old enough so as to pro-
vide his own spending money and to help defray his up-
coming college costs.
Much of it was physical labor, ranging from working at
tobacco warehouses and cotton gins to bagging groceries, ,,
washing airplanes and working with a logger.
During that time, I guess I was the most perplexed when
I was exploring financial aid for this college'and applied
for one particular program that I thought was a sure thing.
As it turned out though, the lady in charge told us that our
son earned too much money during the summer to qualify.
I was kind of quiet for a few moments .because this all
had to process through my rural-bred mental software. :
"Let me get this clear," I said. "He made too much money
working this summer to qualify?" I asked. "That's correct,"
she said. 4
I thought a bit more and then I said,"Let me see if I've
got a good grasp on this logic. If our son had laid around
the pool all summer, played golf every day, hung out at the'
mall and mostly was a bum, then he would have quali-
fied?"
Then she was quiet just a moment. "I guess you could,
look at it that way," she said.
So I said, "Well let's don't tell him that because I think
what he learned working is. more valuable than some of the
courses he will be taking in college."
Of course I didn't blame this lady for what I perceived as
a system that rewarded laziness. . knew she was just fol-
lowing a plan that some jarhead had put together.
And so if this is the new wave of thinking~ if the definition
of "busy" has gone through some kind of metamorphosis. I
guess we can toss out that old expression, "busy as bees."
But then busy as a video junky has no ring to it at all, yet.
it certainly gives greater connotation to that old expression .
of just "looking busy."

HEALTH BRIEF

Keeping swimmer's


ear at bay


If you've ever had swim-
mer's ear, chances are
you've wanted to pull the
plug on the pain.
"When water is trapped
in the ear canal for a long
time, the skin barrier is
weakened," said Dr. Jeffrey
Vrabec, an associate pro-
fessor of otorhinolaryngol-
ogy at Baylor College of
Medicine in Houston.
"Bacteria can then enter the
skin, causing an infection
that can become very
painful."


~7 ~,


I . -~ *'T


Swimmer's ear, or otitis
externa, is an inflammation
of the outer ear that is most
often caused by the accu-
mulation of excess mois-
ture from swimming or dai-
ly showering. Symptoms of
swimmer's ear include
swelling, redness, itching,
muffled hearing and/or dis-
charge from the ear. Antibi-
otic drops are used to treat
the condition, and pain can
be lessened by applying a
warm cloth to the ear or by
using a heating pad.

The financial-services firm
Edward Jones was named the
No. 1 full-service broker in the
August edition of SmartMoney
magazine, according to Keith
Scott, the Live Oak investment
representative.
The firm placed ahead of
seven other firms and received
the highest possible ranking in
all four categories surveyed by
the magazine: stock-picking,
customer satisfaction, trust sur-
vey and customer statements.
"Thousands of one-man
offices welcome accounts of
all sizes and win high marks
for customer satisfaction," the
magazine said. "Conservative
stock picking helped during the
downturn."
"I'm honored by this latest
ranking from SmartMoney
magazine," said Scott. "We are
committed to a long-term
investment philosophy that
emphasizes quality and diver-
sification and believe that rela-
tionships with our clients are
key. We meet face to face with
our clients to build strong rela-
tionships."
This year, SmartMoney gave
brokerage clients a greater
voice by adding the results of a
customer-satisfaction survey
from J.D. Power and
Associates and a trust survey
from Forrester Research.
Edward Jones ranked first in
J.D. Power and Associates'
annual survey of customer sat-
isfaction among full-service


investors. The ranking,
released as the 2005 Full-ser-
vice Investor Satisfaction
Study, placed Edward Jones
ahead of 19 other firms.
For the second consecutive
year, Edward Jones was among
the best advocates for its cus-
tomers, according to a research
study of U.S. financial-services
firms conducted by Forrester
Research, an independent
research company.
Edward Jones earned an
"excellent" designation for its
comprehensive, yet easy to
read and understand client
financial statements, according
to a recent evaluation of cus-
tomer statements by the Dalbar
2004 Trends and Best Practices
in Brokers Statements.

firms giving advice to individ-
ual investors exclusively and

ments, including certificates of

High School (SHS), Pate
displayed tremendous lead-

well with students from

Live Oak community.
HOBY Leadership Semi-
nars bring together a select
group of high school sopho-
mores to interact with
groups of distinguished lead-
ers in business, government,
education and the profes-
sions to discuss present and
future issues. The goal is to
provide the youths a stimu-
lating forum for learning
about critical issues while
broadening their understand-
ing of their leadership poten-
tial and quest for self-devel-
opment. HOBY leaders are
also challenged to return to
their communities to per-
form at least 100 hours of
community service within 12
months following the semi-
nar.
"The seminar challenged
me to think about the world
around me and what we, as
the future leaders, have to do
to positively influence busi-


ness, government and soci-
ety," said Pate. "I also better
understand that my goals and
dreams are important and
that leaders have extreme re-
sponsibilities in whatever
walk of life they pursue."
Hugh O'Brian Youth Lead-
ership was established in
1958 by the popular actor
Hugh O'Brian following a
visit to Africa where he was
inspired by a meeting with
Dr. Albert Schweitzer.
"One of the things
Schweitzer said to me was
that the most important thing
in education was to teach
young people to think for
themselves," O'Brian said.
"From that inspiration, and
with the support of others
who believe in youth and the
American dream, I started
HOBY to seek out, recognize
and develop outstanding
leadership potential among
our nation's youth."
Further information about
HOBY activities and spon-
sorship opportunities is

NFCC pays tribute to Congressman Boyd's

support of Green Industries Institute


Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-North Florida) was hon-
ored recently with a tree plant-
ing ceremony hosted by North
Florida Community College
(NFCC) at the Green Indus-
tries Institute for Professional
Development in Monticello.
NFCC President Morris G.
Steen Jr. recognized Boyd for
his assistance in securing
funding for the Green Indus-
tries program over the past
several years.
Congressman Boyd was
joined by his wife, Cissy
Boyd, Green Industries Insti-
tute Director Gale Allbritton,
as well as staff of NFCC and
Green Industries during a re-
ception following the tree ded-
ication. Also attending were
the Superintendent of Jeffer-
son County Schools Phil
Barker, and board members
Beverly Sloan, Fred Shofner
and Franklin Hightower. Fred
Beshears represented the nurs-
ery industry. A plaque com-
memorating the occasion was
provided by the NFCC Chap-
ter of the Florida Association


of Community Colleges.
Green Industries Institute is
an educational partnership be-
tween North Florida Commu-
nity College, Florida A & M
University, the University of
Florida and the nursery, land-
scape and arboriculture indus-
tries. Since October 2003, the
Institute has served 523 stu-
dents throughout the state and
internationally via profession-
al development and college
credit classes.
The one-of-a-kind facility
meets the educational and
training needs of horticulture


professionals through on-line,
correspondence courses, on-
site classes and business site
workshops. The Institute is en-
dorsed by the Florida Nursery,
Growers and Landscape Asso-
ciation, the Association of

signers, the Professional
Landcare Network and the In-
ternational Society of Arbori-

As the early childhood
work force ramps up for vol-
untary prekindergarten this.
fall, many teachers and
providers have questions
about the state's require-
ments for training. On July 1
the Children's Forum, under
contract with the Department
of Children and Families
(DCF), opened the Child
Care Training Information
Center (CCTIC). The call
center will serve as the infor-
mation and technical assis-
tance unit.
"Ensuring that children
have high quality early learn-
ing opportunities begins with
the teacher," says Phyllis'
Kalifeh, president and CEO
of the Children's Forum. "By
helping educators understand
state and local training re-
quirements and helping them
locate the training they need,
we improve outcomes for
children."


The CCTIC toll-free line is
888-FL-CCTIC 888-35-
22842). Call center special-
ists will answer calls Mon-
day-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. (EST) and will be able
to accommodate English-,
Spanish-, and Creole-speak-
ing callers. Early childhood
teachers and providers can
call the center to find out
what training is necessary,
articulation of previously
earned college credits, and
how to access local training
courses and competency ex-
ams. Because state-mandat-
ed introductory courses pro-
vide fundamental informa-,
tion on child development,
health and safety and class-
room practices, these cours-
es serve as an early child-
hood professional's first ed-
ucational experience in

A few hours later, the fire
rekindled and LOFD re-
sponded again. This time the
fire was in full force.
State Fire Marshall investi-
gator Chris Scovotto said that
though the investigation is
pending, it appears either
some papers in the attic above
the kitchen stove, were smol-
dering and rekindled the fire
or the fire was hidden in the
soffit area above the cabinets.
Scovotto said there was
also combustible material in
the, attic.
Croft said the 2,000 square
foot, three bedroom, two
bathroom house was burned
beyond repair. The brick is


still standing, but the trusses
were weakened extensively,
he said.
Croft expects the inspector
to condemn the house.
Fekule was fully insured,
investigators said.
Fekule and her mother
were in the house when it
caught fire the first time, but
were staying at the Best
Western when the fire rekin-
dled.
Eleven city fire fighters
and five fire vehicles re-
sponded to the fire, as well as
Suwannee County Fire/Res-
cue and the Live Oak Police
Department.

Homeowner hurricane preparation


Homeowners preparing
for hurricanes should begin
thinking now about the
steps they may need to take
for recovery after the
storm passes.
Allstate and Allstate
Floridian Insurance Com-
pany customers whose
homes or automobiles are
damaged or destroyed can
contact Allstate through
The Good Hands Network
by calling their Allstate
agent, dialing 800-ALL-
STATE, 800-54-STORM,
or logging on to
allstate.com.
10 Tips For Storm Re-
covery
1. Make sure your home
is structurally safe. Be ex-
tremely careful inside your
home. Debris may be haz-
ardous and the potential
for collapse may exist. If
you're told by authorities
to stay out, stay out.
2. Make temporary re-
pairs to prevent further
damage, keeping receipts,
for materials.


3. If your home is unliv-
able, find out what living
expenses your Allstate
Floridian policy may cov-
er.
4. Be patient and assist
claims adjusters assigned
to your case. Small losses
may be settled quickly; ex-
tensive claims will take
longer.
5. Notify creditors if
bills have been lost or
you're unable to pay.
6. Ask your utility com-
pany to stop billing if your
home is unlivable or has
been destroyed.
7. Report your claim to
Allstate Floridian prompt-
ly. Be aware, if a wide-
spread disaster has oc-
curred, the company may
set up special procedures.
8. Prepare to file an in-
surance claim by gathering
all relevant policy num-
bers.
9. Inventory your home
for damaged or lost items
before your adjuster ar-
rives. This will speed up


your claim process.
10. Work with a quali-
fied tax expert to find out
about tax breaks you may
be eligible for because of
your losses.
Allstate Floridian Insur-
ance Company and Allstate
Floridian Indemnity Com-
pany are independent sub-
sidiaries of The Allstate
Corporation and are the
primary providers of per-
sonal lines property insur-
ance in Florida for the All-

HEALTH BRIEFS

Check for diabetes


at age 10


By the time your children
are learning their multiplica-
tion tables, they may need to
be screened for diabetes.
According to researchers at
Baylor College of Medicine
(BCM), overweight children
who have two or more risk fac-
tors for the disorder should be
screened starting at age 10.
"Signs that parents can look
for include frequent urination,
constant thirst, weight loss
and/or a darkening or "ring"
around the neck," said Dr.
Siripoom McKay, an assistant
professor of pediatrics, en-
docrinology and metabolism at
BCM.
The American Diabetic As-
sociation reports that prior to


1990, type 2 diabetes account-
ed for less than five percent of
diabetes in children. Today,
over 20 percent of all newly di-
agnosed diabetic children have
type 2 diabetes.
According to McKay, physi-
cal activity among children has
decreased due to changes in
society, school and lifestyle. In
addition, the prevalence of
obesity has" been steadily in-
creasing in children and adults.
"Neighborhoods are not as
safe as they used to be, so chil-
dren are often confined in-
doors where they watch TV
and play video games instead
of exercising outside," she
said.

Suwannee football meets tractor tires


Janet Schrader-Seccafico
Democrat Reporter
What happens when you
mix husky football players
with tractor tires? Fun, compe-
tition and a stiff workout,
that's what. At Suwannee
High, new head football coach
Bobby Bennett has taken a
page from the University of
Florida tire workout and incor-
porated it in his summer train-
ing program. Suwannee Bull-
dog football players are using
tractor tires to increase their


strength and agility while they
work hard and have a little
fun.
According to Bennett, it's a
mini tuffman contest. "I saw
this in Lakeland," Bennett
said. "They got it from Flori-
da."
There are three different ex-
ercises using tractor tires. The
players push them in teams
and alone across a 20-foot
stretch. Two teams compete
for the fastest time. The push-
ing is designed to help the

it was to be ex-
pected, Since his
best British Open
U..1ppo'rltitil as tile
h:il\\; N leader in
2001, Monty has
dropped out of the
top 80 in the world
and withstood a
divorce and a
rules violation


controversy
M. career has been longer than
most," Monty said, "and it's nice
-. -i. having a little bit of resur-
gence now after three years really
in the-':lde-:t- ne -z "
St.'ur I":, was his best finish in a
British Open, ,. iing up in second
at 9-under-par 279, a shot ahead of
Spa itn J -e Maria Olazabal and a
surprising Fred Couples, who
closed with a 68. By bringing the
same attitude he takes to the Ryder


Cup, Mlont:oImt.'ieri.-' 4 Ip liin.al
clearly gave hope to the man who
had trouble even :,ailing on the
course as the winner of seven con-
secutive European money titles but
who has not been able to win a ma-
jor.
The favorite whipping boy of the
tabloids, Monty certainly needed a
week in the spotlight, playing along-
side Woods on Saturday, and playing
only a shot worse than the champi-
on for the weekend, 142 to 141.
"I feel with putting better and
with my life better, I supposed, sort-
ed out, that I can contend in this
championship, wherever it might
be," he said.
The gains were sizeable. Second
at the Smurfit European Open two
weeks ago, Montgomerie also quali-
fied for next year's Masters with his
runner-up finish. "I suppose I'm on
course" to his goal of getting back
into the top 25 in the world, he said.

players gain strength and learn
to get that, low leverage.
At another tire station, the
players are hitched to a huge
tractor tire with an inner tube
around their waist and a rope
running to the tire. Two play-
ers compete against each other
pulling the tires like a mule
hitched to a plow. This pulling
exercise is 'designed to in-
crease each player's speed.
At the last tire station, the
players flip heavy tires end
over end. Two players com-
pete across another 20-foot
stretch. The flipping exercise
is designed to work the hips.
The players have to drop,
open their hips, then lift and
close their hips. This will help
each player become more
flexible and strong in those ar-
eas and is especially helpful
for lineman. They put a lot of
stress on the hip joints.
Reese's BP gas station do-
nated some of the tires along
with Gil's Tire Center.

Dogs
Continued From Page 1B
through the next six innings,
giving up a homerun in the
fifth.
Down 0-7 going into the
second inning, Suwannee
had a tough come-back bat-
tle in front of them. Suwan-
nee fans thought they would
do it, as the Dogs chipped
away at the Paxon lead right
up until the last inning. Ross
Aretino hit another homerun
making it over 20 homers
for the summer season.
Aretino had a, great game
hitting two singles and the
two-run homer in the fourth
inning.
Michael Keene doubled in
the second, followed by
Reppert hitting another dou-
ble followed by Nathan
Moses hitting a double. The
Dogs scored two runs in the
second.
In the third Gabe Gal-
loway got a base hit fol-
lowed by Zack Davis hitting
a double. Suwannee scored
one run in the third to make
it 3-7.
In the fourth, Moses hit
another double and Aretino
drove him in with his home
run. After four it was 5-7 and
Suwannee had hope.
Davis singled in the fifth
but no runs scored. Aretino
singled in the sixth but no
runs scored. The Dog offense
fizzled and the final score was
5-8 with Paxon moving up
and Suwannee going home.
This was the last game for
the Summer Dogs..They had a
great season.

Well Keaton took a surge hit of one to
three feet, depending on exactly which
way your house faces.... canal, gulf, bay
etc. at the beaches here in Taylor County.
I have lived at Keaton . . . . and my
thoughts go out to those dwelling on the
ground floor.
The conditions of the Gulf, as of Tues-
day, July 12 is as follows. The water right
in front of Keaton and Dark Isle was rela-
tively clear with a medium tannic stain.
However, as you proceed south towards
Piney Point the water had a very heavy
tannic stain which was probably a result of
a combination of the Steinhatchee River,
Dallus Creek and a bunch of other tribu-
taries south dumping their 5-10 inch rains
from the swamps back into the Gulf.
The actual effect of this stain, on the
fishing, will probably be negligible as Bil-

other as fast as you could "get it out there"
for bait today, Tuesday, to go offshore on

We saw several fish "busting the sur-

FWC takes next step in

review of imperiled species


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife, Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) is moving
forward with its review of
listing petitions for four
species. At its meeting today
in Daytona Beach, the Com-
mission approved staff-rec-
ommended biological review
panels and established dead-
lines for completion of bio-
logical status reports for the
bald eagle, gopher tortoise,
manatee and Panama City
crayfish.
The biological review pan-
els -will be responsible for
conducting a biological as-
sessment of their respective
species. They will bring to-


gether the most up-to-date
data and run that data
through the state's recently-
updated imperiled species
listing criteria to determine
whether a species should be
classified as endangered,
threatened or species of spe-
cial concern. The biological
review panels will also ex-
amine threats to the species
and, when biologically justi-
fiable, may recommend a
different classification.
Panel members include bi-
ologists knowledgeable of
the species from ihe FWC,
other federal and state agen-
cies, universities and private
groups. and


organizations. An FWC biol-
ogist will chair each biologi-
cal review panel.
"FWC staff searched for
qualified, impartial candi-
dates representing a broad
base of experience," FWC
Chairman Herky Huffman
said. "As a result of their ef-
forts we have a set of high-
quality, well-diversified bio-
logical review panels."
The panels will complete
their biological status re-
ports by June 2006.
More information about
the imperiled species listing
process is available on the
Web at MyFWC.com/imper-
iledspecies.

heavily stained. When the water quits com-
ing back out of the woods the gulf will be-
gin to clear back up. How many days? de-
pends on how much rain is still in the
woods?
Back to fishing:
Friday, before the hurricane came into
the Gulf, I took Bob Emmett and his two
sons, Zach and Jeremy, all of Thomasville,
Ga. out and we limited out with 20 trout to
23-inches which combined for a total
weight of 34 pounds. We also landed (Bob)
two fine reds just over six pounds
apiece. We caught our fish on live pinfish
and pilchards fished under 2.5-inch oval
Cajun Thunders. Note: we started our trip
. at 10:30 a.m. and fished til 2:30 p.m. Many
folks think you need to go early to catch
summer trout? that just ain't so. Fish the
incoming tides, now, for your best results.
I simply don't have any other fishing re-
ports, as the hurricane kept everyone off
the water over the weekend. Hope to have
some great reports for you next week . ..
until then though, if you did manage to slip
offshore ... I would believe in my heart of
hearts that you should try to get you some
grouper in say, 45 feet of water on squid. .
. . of course!

State Farm supports student service

for disaster prevention in Florida


The State Farm Companies
Foundation is providing
$125,000 to support student
advocacy and information
campaigns to raise awareness
about the importance of build-
ing codes and disaster prepara-
tion. Florida schools, from
kindergarten through higher
education, can receive State
Farm funds to have students
learn about these issues and
educate the broader public
about them.
According to Joe Formusa,
State Farm Senior Vice Presi-
dent in Florida, the program s
student focus is intentional.
The best way for young peo-
ple to learn about protecting
their homes and communities
is through real-world experi-
ence and practice. Today s
students are tomorrow s home-
owners, community leaders,
builders, and legislators.
The four hurricanes that


struck Florida in 2004 impact-
ed all 67 of the state s coun-
ties. This project is intended
to generate participation
across the state. In addition to
learning more about building
codes and disaster preparation,
students will implement ser-
vice-learning activities to ed-
ucate and influence their
peers, parents, and communi-
ties. Activities will promote
student citizenship and civic
engagement.
Student projects will take
many forms. For example,
students can create products
such as brochures, videos, tip
sheets, models of disaster-re-
sistant homes, or disaster
preparation kits that teach
about building codes and dis-
aster preparation, mitigation,
response, and recovery. Stu-
dents can help seniors prepare
their homes for disasters,

Do you want ,




blessings?

I believe the Lord is continually blessing
each of us every day. Sometimes, because of our
attitudes or outlooks on life, we either do not
recognize our blessings or we take them for
granted. A blessing may be as simple as
receiving a kind word from a friend, or as -~
wonderful as awakening each morning to a
new day. We may feel that some individuals
receive more blessings from the Lord than others;
however, perhaps they may be just more aware of
God's goodness toward them. Just as "beauty is in.
the eye of the beholder," blessings are in the eye
of the receiver. Those who can recognize God's
blessings, may ask, "Why am I so blessed?" The
answer is simple: God loves us. He asks for
nothing in return except our love and for us to live
our lives as He would want. People who can
recognize God's blessings are more content and
happier with their lives. They can accept the good
times and the bad, and they always know that God
is with them, no matter what each day may bring.

Encouraging



Words
Everyone needs encouragement at times, and the Bible
tells us that we should encourage one another and build
each other up. When we encourage someone with either
our actions or our words, we are giving someone hope
and support by letting that person know that he or she is
regarded as a valued and respected friend. Sometimes, it
seems much easier to discourage rather than encourage
someone. We can always find fault in someone;
however, we should be looking for the good traits or
behavior that one may possess. A wise person can
correct and encourage with such skill so as to not
destroy the desire or ambition of another individual.
Being an honest, encouraging person can be habit
forming, and people enjoy being around someone whose.
comments are positive and nonthreatening. God gives
all of us encouragement by His words that He loves us
and will never forsake us.

By Charles Stuart Platkin
No doubt about it - water is
critical. It constitutes more than
two-thirds of your body weight,
95 percent of your brain, 82 per-
cent of your blood and 90 per-
cent of your lungs. However, as
it turns out, you might not need
to work as hard as you thought to
get enough. Here are answers to
the most common questions
about keeping our bodies hydrat-
ed.
Q: Do I really need to drink
eight glasses of water every day?
A: No. According to a key re-
view in the "Journal of Physiolo-
gy" by Heinz Valtin, M.D., a kid-
ney and hydration expert and
professor emeritus at Dartmouth
Medical School in Hanover,
N.H., there is no evidence to sup-
port the necessity of drinking
eight glasses of water each day.
So how much water do you re-
ally need? According to the Insti-
tute of Medicine of the National
Academies, women should con-'
sume 91 ounces of water a day,
and men need 125 ounces - a
good deal more than the 64
ounces (8 cups) generally recom-
mended. Here's the catch: We get
most, if not all, of that water
without heading for the tap or
uncapping a bottle of Evian even
once. The main reason? We get
the water we need from a variety
of sources, including food and
other liquids.
"Approximately 45 to 50 per-
cent of daily water intake comes
from drinking fluids, about 35
percent from eating food and the
rest from metabolism," says
Stephen Rice, M.D., Ph.D.,
M.P.H., a sports medicine spe-
cialist at the Jersey Shore Med-
ical Center in Neptune, N.J.
Vegetables and fruits are the
most hydrating, with such veg-
gies as lettuce coming in at 95
percent water. But we also get a
lot from meat, as well as liquids
like soup, juice, soda, milk and
even coffee. So while our water
intake does need to be fairly
high, it's a safe bet that as long as
*we're' eating and drinking some-
thing, it will be as high as it
needs to be.
Q: 'How long can I go without
any liquids?
A: "That depends on a myriad
of factors, including body size,
sweat rate, amount of activity
and environment," says Douglas
J. Casa, Ph.D., A.T.C.,
F.A.C.S.M., director of athletic
training education and associate
professor of kinesiology at the
University of Connecticut at
Storrs.
"In a desert, a person could die
in a day, while those in ideal sit-
uations and climates could po-
tentially live without water for
two weeks," says Valtin.
Q: If I'm thirsty, am I already
dehydrated?
A: No. "If you are thirsty, you
are underhydrated, not totally de-
hydrated. Thirst is a signal that
your body would like more flu-
id," says Nancy Clark, M.S.,
R.D., Boston-area sports nutri-
tionist and author of "Nancy
Clark's Sports Nutrition Guide-
book" (Human Kinetics, 2003).
Hydration is measured by blood
concentration (e.g., the concen-.
tration of sodium in your blood)
- the higher the concentration,
the more dehydrated you are.
When this concentration increas-
es by just 2 percent, you get
thirsty. "Thirst is a warning
mechanism, letting you know
that dehydration is lurking
around the corner. But to escalate
to actual dehydration, the blood
concentration must rise by 5 per-
cent," says Valtin.
Rice also points out that, "Al-
though body temperature doesn't
start to rise dramatically until
one is a little further dehydrated,
deficiencies in athletic perfor-
mance are detected very early in
the process." So, thirst is no
cause for worry, but if you're an
athlete, it's important to drink
during activity.
What about "storing" water
(i.e., drinking a lot before you go
out and sweat)? "That doesn't


work," says Valtin. "Most liquids
we drink will be out of our bod-
ies within a half-hour. You can't
store up your liquids." So grab a
glass of water when your body
signals thirst, but don't force
yourself to chug a gallon to ward
off thirst you don't feel - be-
cause it probably won't help.
Q: Are sports drinks better
than water?
A: Sometimes. "Sports drinks
arc designed to be taken during


exercise that lasts for more than
an hour. They contain a little sug-
ar to fuel the muscles and the
brain, as well as a little sodium to
enhance fluid absorption and re-
tention," says Clark. Sports
drinks are helpful for athletes
such as marathoners and cyclists
who need to rapidly absorb fluid
to reduce their risk of becoming
dehydrated from heavy sweat
losses. "Construction workers
and school kids have no need for
sports drinks in their lunchboxes.
Water can rehydrate them just
fine, and the salt in their
lunchtime foods (e.g., pretzels,
ham, cheese, mustard, etc.) can
replace sodium losses," says
Clark.
Q: Are coffee, tea and other
caffeinated drinks dehydrating?
A: Absolutely not, says Casa.
"They provide fluids just like
any beverage. A slightly greater
percentage of the ingested fluid
may be urinated, but it's still pro-
viding water."
In fact, a preliminary study
conducted at the Center for Hu-
man Nutrition in Omaha, Neb.,
found no difference in hydration
between subjects who drank caf-
feinated beverages and those
who drank beverages without
caffeine, suggesting that either
the diuretic effect of caffeine is
not overwhelmingly significant
or that the amount of water in
caffeinated drinks compensates
for the liquid that is leached from
the body (remember, both coffee
and tea are 99 percent water).
"People who are used to drinking
caffeinated beverages get accus-
tomed to the caffeine and do not
urinate more fluid than they con-
sume via their coffee or tea,"
adds Clark.
Q: Do we need to get our hy-
dration from a variety of
sources?
A: "It's not necessary. Your
body will get the water it needs
from what you consume," says
Casa.
Q: Is water an effective ap-
petite, siippressant"
A- "Thbere's no real evidence
of this. However, people often
mistake thirst for hunger, which
means you could be eating food
when you actually don't need it,"
advises Clark. So how can you
tell the difference? Finish off a
tall glass of water when you feel
a snack attack coming on, and
then decide if you still need some
food after that. Nevertheless, ex-
tensive research completed by
Barbara Rolls, Ph.D., a professor
of nutrition at Penn State, found
that eating soup and other liquid-
based foods at the beginning of a
meal helps reduce hunger. -
Q: Is cold water better for your
body than water at room temper-
ature?
A: No. "The reasons that
cooled liquids (55 degrees
Fahrenheit) are recommended
for rehydrating - specifically
for athletes - are several-fold,
including the facts that they emp-
ty the stomach faster than room-
temperature fluids, cool the body
down a little and may increase
the willingness to drink," says
Rice.
Q: Is it true that you can never
get too much water, or any bev-
erage for that matter?
A: According to Rice, you def-
initely can ingest too much water
- resulting in hyponatremia
(water intoxication). "This is
most commonly seen in
marathoners who run so slowly
that they don't generate much
temperature rise or sweat yet are
drinking water excessively," says
Rice.
But don't worry. Someone
who is healthy couldn't really get
to this point, says Valtin. Though
reluctant to give an exact num-
ber, he estimates that it would
take almost 15 liters of water for
most people to reach hypona-
tremia.
Q: If you're very thirsty, can
you drink salt water?
A: No. "In order to gain true
water balance from drinking sea
water, we would have to excrete
the salt and retain true water, and


our organs cannot do that," says
Valtin.

Lightning Season is here, and you need
our protection: --_

SURGE PROTECTION PROGRAM: This

homes and sensitive electronic equipment from
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
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.

362-1734 CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE 1-800-525-4182


Dear Classified Guys,
Help! I'm finally moving across the
country. I've packed all of my stuff
and hired a moving company to pick
it up. The only thing left is my pet
turtle, Bob. I've had him for almost
five years and I don't know how to
get him from Colorado to
Connecticut. He can survive up to a
week without food or water, but he
has a terrible habit of peeing when
he's scared. I used to just put him in
my pocket when I flew, but with
today's security, I'm afraid I'd be the
one picked out for a search. I can
only imagine Bob being detained by
airport security. I was wonder-
ing if I could convince the ,
moving guys to keep him - )
in the front seat with them '. 7
during the trip. It's not like
he'd be much trouble.
Carry: The moving guys may not
mind as long as Bob doesn't keep ask-
ing to stop and use the restrooms!
Cash: Most moving companies try
to work with their customers, so it
never hurts to ask. However, before
you impose upon the drivers, we have a
few other suggestions that may work
for your situation.
Carry: Generally speaking, turtles


THE

CLASSInE






Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


@2005 The Classified Guys�


are among the easiest pets to move.
Most animals need to travel in special
pet carriers and fly in the cargo section
ofplanes. Turtles, however, can some-
times get a first class ride.
Cash: Check with your airline about
taking Bob on the plane with you. I'm
sure they won't recommend putting him
in your pocket, especially considering
his nervous habit, but some airlines
may permit him to travel onboard with
you. They typically request that a turtle
travel in a small pet carrier that can fit
under your seat.
Carry: If you find that bringing Bob
on the plane doesn't work out, you can


always overnight mail him to
Connecticut. It's not a joke. Believe it
or not, overnight mail is one of the easi-
est ways to transport turtles.
Cash: To ensure a safe.trip, pack
your turtle in a well-cushioned
Styrofoam box with air holes and line it
with soft grass or leaves. The box
should be large enough for him to
extend his legs and head. Include a
damp cloth for moisture, and write
"This Side Up" and "Fragile, Live
Animal" on the box.
Carry: For Bob, it's a first class trip
and he won't have to check his luggage
at the airport.


Goodbye Turtles
If you haven't seen baby turtles in the
pet store lately, we're not surprised.
Since 1975, The US Food and Drug
Administration has banned the sale of
most baby turtles. Medical research
found that some baby pet turtles carried
the bacteria that caused salmonella poi-
soning. In an attempt to curtail children
from becoming infected, a federal regu-
lation was passed to ban the sale of tur-
tle eggs and turtles under four inches
long.

It Takes All Kinds
All turtles are created equal. Well,
not necessarily. Today, there are over
250 species of turtles, each one differ-
ent from the next. One freshwater
species that lives here in North America
can outrun a human being on level
ground. Another species, the
Leatherback Sea Turtle, which breed in
the Florida region, can grow up to eight
feet long and weigh as much as two
thousand pounds. Those may be a bit
large for your home aquarium.

Got a question, funny story, or just want to give
us your opinion? Let us hear it. Leave a
message toll-free at (888) 242-3644 or send to:
P.O. Box 8246, New Fairfield, CT 06812.


Detailed
Two weeks ago while on a camp-
ing vacation, my eight-year-old son
caught a small turtle and decided to
keep it. Since then, he's been
obsessed with "Harry the Turtle",
taking it everywhere we go.
The other day when we went to
the auto store, I insisted he leave it
at home in the tank. However, that
didn't stop him from going on and
on about Harry. Even while we
walked around the store, he won-
dered what else his turtle needed to
be happy.
It came to him while we were
standing in the checkout line. With
a tug of my shirt, he looked up at me,
and said, "Dad, can we buy Harry
this turtle wax?"
(Thanks to Henry S.)




Wonder how long it took him?

FAMILY FEATURES EDITORIAL SYNDICATE


A re you a mom on the front lines
of.the snack challenge? Kids and moms often disagree on what makes a smart snack when pack-
ing back-to-school lunches. Be a winner by serving snacks that strike a balance between "tastes
great!" and "good for you."

Balance is the key to smart snacking: Find foods that both taste good and make you feel good, and fit snacks
into an overall balanced
daily diet.
Kudos Milk Chocolate Granola Bars offer wholesome granola nutrition as an excellent source of calcium
with great taste. With a perfect balance between pleasure and goodness, this granola bar makes an excellent
choice for mothers who like to give their kids a little something extra. Available in chocolate chip and peanut
butter flavors, the non-chocolate-enrobed varieties contain only 100 calories per serving. This delicious snack
also is available in a Snickers and M&M'S variety. And if you're following the Weight Watchers POINTS
plan, you'll be glad to know these bars count for only two points.



Stacking up smart snacks

Depending upon their age, size and amount of physical activity, kids may need a snack every few
hours. Whether you're packing their lunch, letting them choose an after-school snack or helping
them make smart choices at the supermarket, here are some tips for smart parents and savvy kids:


fitness is child's play

For good health, kids need to move! But today, too many don't get
enough activity, spending hours in sedentary pursuits in front of the
TV and computer monitor. Inactivity is a factor in the rise of child-
hood obesity, which can place kids at risk for serious disease.
By motivating children to be active and providing a well-bal-
anced diet, parents can help kids maintain a healthy weight, im-
prove overall health and well-being, and develop good eating and
exercise habits that last a lifetime. Remember that healthful eating
and being active are key components of a healthy lifestyle!
* Do as I do. Be a role model! If you're involved in a physical ac-
tivity that you enjoy, you're showing your child that exercise is a
priority. Whether you enjoy kite-flying or in-line skating as a
family, or simply go for walks or ride bikes, it's the example
you're setting that will motivate your kids.
* Daily dose. Most kids need at least an hour of activity every day.
Make sure they get the opportunity to do chores around the
house, walk the dog, wash the car and take part in other everyday
activities-they won't realize they're exercising!.
* Team up. Give kids the opportunity to exercise their interest in a
team sport, or in an individual sport like swimming, gymnastics,
tennis or track.
* Tbrn off the electronics. Replace sedentary pastimes with nature
walks, a game of catch or even indoor activities like hide-and-
seek.
* Purposeful play. As appropriate, encourage kids to participate in
group or individual activities for a cause, such as shoveling snow
or mowing grass for elderly neighbors, sponsoring a car wash or
walking to raise money for charity.


* Take your kids shopping and let them help you choose snacks that they'll enjoy.
* Create an "approved snack" place in the kitchen, such as a cupboard that kids can access
safely at snack time.
* Put snack foods where kids can reach them. Keep foods that are only for occasional treats
in less convenient and hard-to-reach places.
* Buy food in single-serving packaging for grab 'n' go snacking.
* Choose snacks from
all the food groups. For greatest variety, try to incorporate whole grains, vegetables,
cheese, yogurt or beans into kids'
snack-eating plans.
* Include sweet snack choices that you can feel good about serving to your kids, like
fruit or granola bars.


Model good habits: Monkey see, monkey do!


Children learn their habits by watching others. Parents: Examine
your food choices and lifestyle habits to make sure you send a
,healthy message to your kids for making food decisions. Fol-
lowing are some tips 'from the American Dietetic Association
for a healthy school year:
* Keep a regular meal schedule. When meals aren't regular or
are missed, children tend to snack more throughout the day
and so
are less hungry at mealtimes.
* Empower your kids. Involve kids in planning meals and
snacks. Let your kids try new foods, without forcing or brib-
ing them.
* Don't skip breakfast. Breakfast provides much of the day's
nourishment and energy for active kids. Studies have shown
that breakfast can help children perform at peak capacity in


the classroom.
* Eat as a family. Aim for all family members to eat together
at least once a day. Cook fast and eat slowly, allowing time for
you
to pay attention to your meal and to each other.
* Diversify your menu. Balance meals with a wide selection of
kid-pleasing choices from all food groups.
* Snacks can be healthy. Snacks can supply nutrition that may
be missing from the rest of the day's meals. Offer snacks at
least two hours before meals so kids will be hungry at meal-
time.
* No food is taboo. Prohibiting candy, fast food or other high-
calorie snack foods makes these items seem very desirable. If
you allow them occasionally, they lose their strong appeal.
