Local woman is first to


receive new treatment


Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter
A new breast cancer treatment is being offered in
North Florida. Live Oak resident Beverly Reagan
found out she had breast cancer i4 January and was
the first person in the North Florida area to receive
the treatments called MammoSite treatments.
The MammoSite method is an alternative radia-
tion treatment that targets the tumor area and only
takes five days.
Reagan had a mammogram done at the Shands
at Lake Shore in Lake City last December a week
before Christmas. The mammogram came back
positive for cancer and the next week she was sent
to Gainesville to have some biopsies done. The
tests came back showing cancer in the right breast.
Reagan said her friends were worried about her
having to make the trip to Gainesville alone if she
found out she had cancer. The day of the visit she
went in optimistic thinking she would be able to
handle the news.
"The doctor told me I did have cancer and they
wanted to take it out as soon as possible," Reagan
said. "He then went on and on about options, and
at the end of the visit he said, 'You've not heard a
word I've said since I said cancer.'"
The news was a shock because she expected the
doctor to tell her that she had a fibroid cyst since
she has had several of these cysts in the past. Rea-
gan managed to hold it together until -she got


home, but she broke do'.in \'lhile IM
phoning her husband vith thei
news. .
"I was told that my optin I .
would be a complete mastecto-
my or radiation, and I was
given five days to " ", i
make the decision."
Reagan said. "I prayed
about it and talked -
with friends and fami- "
ly before I made the
decision."
Reagan chose the ra-
diation and was given
the option to receive
the MammoSite treat-
ments. She was then
referred to Dr. Paul
Schilling in
Gainesville at Com- '-
munity Cancer Center Beverly Reagan, the first b

Reagan had her first cancer with God's help," s
cancer surgery in Jan-
uary to insert a balloon and tube to attach the radi-
ation. Every time before the treatments the doctor
does a CT scan to make sure the balloon hasn't
moved.
After the first surgery she found out she had
lymphatic cancer for which she is currently taking
chemotherapy. Since then she's had a total of sev-

Reagan took the MammoSite treatments twice a
day at seven-minute intervals for five days. Regu-

seven weeks. During her treatments, Reagan's hus-

Assessment letters begin arriving today


Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
Property owners in Suwannee
County could begin receiving letters
today notifying them of a proposed
increase in the county fire assess-
ment and a lowering of the solid
waste assessment, along with the
hearing date on the issue.
The letters are a requirement of
state statutes to make sure all proper-
ty owners know about the proposed
changes to both assessments. While


the solid waste assessment will actu-
ally go down from $115 per house-
hold to $114.38, the fire assessment
will go up based upon a survey Tal-
lahassee law firm Nabors, Giblin and
Nickerson did for the county. In ad-
dition, while only dwellings and
commercial buildings have been as-
sessed in the past, the new proposal
will levy the fire assessment addi-
tionally on open land and hotels/mo-
tels and RV Parks.
The money is needed, the county
says, to provide its volunteer and
county fire departments with training


and proper equipment.
A public hearing will be held Aug.
16 beginning at 5:15 p.m. at the
Suwannee High School Auditorium
where citizens may attend and ad-
dress the issue. If the proposal is
passed, it will take effect Oct. 1,
2005.
The proposal, the first in the histo-
ry of the county where open land
will be assessed for fire protection, is
expected to bring in about $1.2 mil-
lion the first year for fire protection.
Currently citizens pay a $50 fire
assessment. The proposed fire as-


sessment will be $45.91 per year for
residential and $45.91 on open land
up to 160 acres. Owners of 160 acres
or more will also be assessed 11
cents per acre for all property over
160 acres.
See the following Q and A to learn
more. If you need more information
after reading the Q and A, you may
go by the county offices at 224 Pine
Avenue in Live Oak, the, Branford
Library or you may call 386-364-
3400.

Suwannee County
FY 2005-06 fire
assessment program
questions and answers
Suwannee County has com-
pleted a review of its existing
assessment program for Fire
Protection Services. The
County is considering the im-
position of a restructured fire
protection services special as-
sessment program to provide
funding for the County's fire
protection services and facili-
ties for all properties located
within the County excluding
properties located in the
Cities of Live Oak and Bran-
ford. With this brochure, you
have received a notice of your
proposed fire protection ser-
vices assessment that con-
tains the legal information re-
quired by State law. The in-
formation in this brochure has
been prepared to clarify the
legal information in the no-
tice and to answer some of the
questions you may have re-
garding the county's fire pro-
tection services assessment
program and how it will affect
you this year.
Q. What is the purpose of
the proposed fire protection
services special assessment?
A. The proposed assessment
will be used to pay for a por-
tion of the costs of,providing
fire protection services to
properties in the unincorporat-
ed area of Suwannee County.
Q. How does the restruc-
tured fire protection assess-
ment program differ from
the current fire assessment
program?
A. The restructured fire pro-
tection assessment program
has been carefully crafted to
meet the legal tests for fire pro-
tection assessment programs, in
Florida and is based on actual
historical demand for fire pro-
tection services in Suwannee
County.
Q. How are the assessment
rate categories different
from prior years?
A. Within the Fire Assess-
ment program in previous
years, there were two assess-
ment rate categories, residen-
tial and non-residential. This
year, the assessment methodol-
ogy was revised to provide for
four rate categories including:
residential, non-residential,
Hotel, Motel/RV Parks and
land.
Q. How do these revised
categories affect my assess-
ment rate for fire services?
A. In previous years, the res-
idential rate category was
charged a flat rate per dwelling
unit and the non-residential
category a per square foot
charge for buildings situated
on the parcel. This year, resi-
dential rates will continue to be
charged on a per dwelling unit
basis, and rates for non-resi-
dential properties will continue
be charged on a square footage
basis. However, this year com-
mercial buildings will be as-
sessed for a maximum of
40,000 square feet. Rates for
; the hotel/motel/RV Park cate-
S gory will be based on per room
i or park space, and land catego-
I ry assessments will consist of a


flat rate for the first 160 acres
with a per acre charge for
parcels in excess of 160 acres
up to a maximum of 640 acres
per parcel.
Q. Why is the special as-
sessment on the tax bill?
A. "Piggy-backing" with the
annual property tax bill is
known as the tax bill collection
method and it (1) saves money
for everyone by reducing the
administrative costs of the pro-
gram, (2) results in a stable
revenue source to fund fire ser-
vices, and (3) is more fair to
property owners who pay on
time as well as those who may
be delinquent in their pay-
ments.
Q. What period, of time
does the assessment cover
and when will the assessment
be payable?
A. The assessment is im-
posed annually and initially
covers the period October 1,
2005 through September 30,
2006. It will be payable, as part
of your tax bill, each year be-
tween November 1 and March
31.
Q. What benefits will the
program provide to property
owners in the County?
A. The fire protection as-
sessment program will provide
a cost-effective and financial-
ly-stable means of funding fire
protection services and facili-
ties for years to come, stability
in insurance rates, protection
of public safety, enhancement
of property value and better
service to property and its oc-
cupants.
Q. What will happen if I do
not pay the assessment?
A. Because the County is us-
ing the tax bill collection
method, Florida law requires
that all ad valorem taxes and
the accompanying fire protec-
tion services assessments be
paid at the same time. If you do
not pay your taxes and the as-
sessments, a lien will be placed
against your property equal in
rank and dignity with the liens
of all state, county and munici-
pal taxes and special assess-
ments.
Q. I don't pay taxes now


due to homestead exemption.
Will I have to pay the special
assessment?
A. Yes. Special assess-
ments are different from tax-
es and the special assessment
applies to all property uses
regardless of homestead ex-
emption.
Q. What if I am concerned
that I cannot pay the full as-
sessment amount at one
time?
A. If you make monthly
mortgage payments, it is likely
that this amount will be es-
crowed by your mortgage
holder much like property tax-
es and your monthly payment
will include this assessment.
Alternatively, if you would like
to make installment payments,
you might wish to contact the
Suwannee County Tax Collec-
tor at (386) 362-2816 by April
30, 2006, to arrange to partici-
pate in the quarterly install-
ment program for the payment
of taxes and assessments for
the next year.
Q. I receive a discount for
early payment of my taxes.
Will I receive the same dis-
count for my special assess-
ment?
A. Yes. The same discounts
and penalties applicable to ad
valorem taxes also apply to
special assessments collected
on the tax bill.
Q. I currently claim a de-
duction for property taxes on
my income tax return each
year; can I claim a deduction
for the fire protection services
special assessment?
A. This is a question for your
tax adviser. However, general-
ly a special assessment against
your residence is not a valid in-
come tax deduction. However,
if you own rental property or a
business, the special assess-
ment may be deductible when
computing your income taxes.
Please contact your accountant
or income tax preparer for in-
formation regarding your spe-
cific situation.
Q. I have a tenant in my,.
house. Should the tenant pay
the assessment or will I have to
pay it as property owner?

band took off the week to be with her, and they
were also keeping their grandchildren at the
time. If she had opted for regular radiation,
Reagan could have received the treatments in
Lake City but Gainesville is the closest city in
the area that offers MammoSite treatments.
"I'd have my first treatment at 8 a.m. and the
next one around 2 p.m.," Reagan said. "Be-
tween the treatments, we'd take the kids to
McDonald's and go to the park for a picnic."
Reagan did not experience any of the typical
side affects from radiation like hair loss or
nausea. And because she is allergic to all pain
medication other than Tylenol, she has gone
through all of her surgeries and chemotherapy
without any medication.
Reagan said friends will drop by and tell her
how strong she is. "I won't give up," Reagan
said. "I feel if I give up, that's it. I'm going to
overcome this with God's help."
Reagan said her doctor told her the success
rate of the MammoSite treatments is about the
same as traditional radiation.
She was fortunate to catch the cancer at an
early stage. After her chemo treatments for the
lymphatic cancer are completed in September,
she will have a PET scan to see if she is can-
cer free. . . .
Reagan said she was excited to be the first
patient in North Florida to receive the Mam-
moSite treatments. Through her procedure the
surgeon now knows that after the actual cancer
surgery, patients who are a candidate for the


procedure can have the balloon inserted in the
doctor's office.
Senior Account Executive for Schwartz
Communications, Inc. Marisa Dulyachinda
said that historically, following a lumpectomy,
standard'external radiation treatment is done
to kill any remaining cancer cells around
where the tumor was and often requires six to
seven weeks of daily treatments. The lengthy
process, coupled with the fact that some
women have to travel hours to a radiation cen-
ter, can be burdensome and jeopardize the
health of women who can't afford to devote
this kind of time to treatments, she said.
Dulyachinda said with MammoSite, a full
course of radiation therapy can be delivered
directly to the area from inside the tumor cav-
ity through a single balloon catheter in just
five days because the radiation is targeted to
the area where recurrence is most likely. This
method also minimizes the exposure of
healthy breast tissue to radiation, she said.
MammoSite received FDA clearance May
2002 and since then has been used to treat
thousands of women. Dulyachinda said stud-
ies have shown that MammoSite, a partial
breast irradiation method, produces similar re-
currence rates to whole breast radiation.
The Community Cancer Center of North
Florida in Gainesville is the only treatment
center in the area that is licensed t" 'iliiiiiit'
MammoSite treatments.

OPINION

Something small


businesses can


take to the bank










BY JACK FARIS
Anytime the United States House of Representatives ap-
proves legislation by a margin of 424 to 1, that's a clear in-
dication that the lawmakers believe some aspect of American
law should be changed. Such a resounding declaration oc-
curred in May when lawmakers heeded small-business own-
ers' pleas to remove a 70-year-old ban on allowing interest
payments for business checking accounts.
It will probably come as a surprise to many Americans that
a law dating back to the Great Depression bars banks from
making interest payments to business checking accounts. It
certainly made Sarasota entrepreneur Ed Pinto take a new
look at an institution he had long regarded as a friend of
small business.
Flabbergasted that such an archaic prohibition still exists,
Pinto recently took his story to the U. S. Senate Committee
on'Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs in hopes that sena-
tors would join their House colleagues in passing the Busi-
ness Checking Freedom Act H.R. 1224. The act passed in the
House in two previous sessions of Congress with strong and
significant bipartisan support.
Under current law, small-business owners are forced to
choose between non-interest-bearing accounts and more
costly "sweep" accounts, which require a much higher bal-
ance than ordinary checking accounts. Many small busi-
nesses do not have the financial resources necessary to main-
tain a "sweep" account, so they are forced to deposit their
hard-earned cash in accounts that can't pay one cent in inter-
est.
"When the company was started," Pinto testified, "I can
recall my astonishment at being told that a business could
not earn interest on a checking account." He opted instead
for an interest-bearing "sweep" account, which not only
lacked Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation protection,
but also came with high fees and confusing accounting rules.
"Sweep" accounts, Pinto quickly discovered, were not
small-business friendly at all. They are specifically designed
for larger companies that can afford in-house accounting
professionals and have the financial staff resources neces-
sary to track the flow of funds through a company's multiple
accounts.
Big banks have consistently opposed repealing the ban on
interest checking for business accounts, Pinto said, "but in
their efforts to insulate themselves from free-market compe-
tition, they're hurting small businesses."
Hurting small business is something Congiesswoman Sue
Kelly (Dist. 19 - N.Y.) says she won't abide, which is why
she reintroduced H.R. 1224 in March 2005.
"In our 21 st Century economy, no American should be los-
ing the option of earning interest on their own money simply
because they own a small business," Kelly said. "Yet our
small-business owners across the country are unfairly losing
potential interest income on a daily basis until the Business
Checking Freedom Act becomes law."
The act would not require banks to provide interest pay-
ments. It would merely remove the official sanction against
doing so and give banks the option to offer such checking ac-
counts to small firms.
Even the Federal Reserve supports changing the law. Sen-
ators now have an opportunity to vote on something that
small businesses can really take to the bank.

tion of Independent Business), the nation's largest small-
business advocacy group. A non-profit, non-partisan organi-
zation founded in 1943, NFIB represents the consensus views
of its 600,000 members in Washington, D.C., and all 50 state

Much ado in our country and Eu-
rope has been made about alleged
mistreatment and torture of suspected
terrorist prisoners. First, there were
stories and hand-wringing over the '
treatment of prisoners at Iraq's Abu
Ghraib prison.
More recently, Sen. Dick Durbin,
D-Ill., equated our military's treat-
ment of captured Taliban and al-Qae- - ' '
da terrorist suspects, held at Guan- BY WALTE
tanamo Bay, with something that
would have "been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or
some mad regime - Pol Pot or others - that had no concern
for human beings." That statement not only demonstrates igno-
rance of the horrors committed by the Nazis, Soviets and Pol
Pot, but it supplied ammunition for people seeking to destroy us.
Regardless of how we feel now about the treatment of terror-
ists, and suspected terrorists, I can envision a day when Ameri-
cans will care less about interrogation techniques used in the
quest to get intelligence about terrorists. That day will be when
there's a chemical or biological attack in one of our cities that
kills and injures tens of thousands of Americans. If that day ever
comes, you can bet the rent money that the Dick Durbins, the
Nancy Pelosis and others who've undermined and attacked our
interrogation efforts, complaining about our not treating interna-
tional cutthroats humanely, will blame the attack on President
Bush. The last thing they'll do is blame themselves for sabotag-
ing our efforts to get intelligence that might stymie terrorist
plans.
It's tempting to invoke the Geneva Convention protections
that are afforded prisoners of war. Geneva Convention protec-
tions did apply to Iraqi soldiers captured during our war with
Iraq, but they do not apply to terrorists or even soldiers who are
out of uniform. In earlier times, when common sense prevailed
and we had the will to defend ourselves, that fact was under-
stood and appreciated.
During World War II, German soldiers captured not wearing
their own army's uniforms were lined up and shot. In 1942, a
German submarine landed eight Nazi saboteurs on the beaches
of New York and Florida. Two months after a secret military tri-
bunal, convened by President Roosevelt, six of the eight were

our country depends on our reputation and how we are viewed,
especially in Germany"? If you substitute "the Muslim world"
for "Germany" in that statement, you have House Minority
Leader Nancy Pelosi's, D-Calif., statement.
Here's my question to you: If there's a biological or chemical
terrorist attack, killing and wounding tens of thousands of Amer-
icans, how much would you care about "our reputation and how
we are viewed in the Muslim world"? What will you think of
leftist politicians, intellectuals and news media people preoccu-
pied with whether we're treating Taliban and al-Qaeda detainees
at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, according to the Geneva Conven-
tion?
Let's be clear about one thing. I'm not suggesting that we treat
captured terrorist suspects the way the Japanese treated Ameri-
can POWs during World War II. While harsh interrogation tech-
niques are by no means a guarantee that useful information will
be acquired to thwart a deadly attack, our interrogators should
be permitted to employ every method at their disposal.
There's an important terrorism issue for Muslim communities,
especially those residing in Western countries. They should be
concerned about backlash and retaliation against Muslims in the
wake of a large-scale disaster. Muslims must in no uncertain
terms make it clear, as have spokesmen for the Free Muslim
Coalition (www.freemuslims.org), that the terrorists do not
speak for them, and they must report terrorists within their com-
munities.

Q: What can. I advise.- gently -.my
teenager about oral hygiene?
A: We all know, that teenagers live a
hectic lifestyle: fast food on the go,
sugary snacks between classes and
practices, lax habits when it comes to
brushing and flossing. You can not only
advise, but also help. If you're involves in
putting their lunch bag together, send
them off with a supply of teeth-friendly
snacks like popcorn, raw vegetables,
plain yogurt, sugarless gum and candy,
cheese and nuts. Explain to them that
snacks like these will preserve their oral
health - and that all-important smile -
through many prom seasons to come. It's
an unfortunate fact that some three-
quarters of 13- to 17-year-olds have
gums that bleed. This is not to say that
your teen can't have the sugary snack he
or she wants. But will minimize the impact
of the sugar on teeth enamel. Also,
remind your teen to brush, or at least
rinse with water, after every meal.
Whatever your advise, insist on regular
visits - at least every six months - to a
dentist, and ask your dentist to talk to
your son or daughter about oral hygiene.

Certain drugs can help treat tremors
Tremors are involuntary shaking or quivering. People can be embar-
rassed by a tremor they cannot control. In extreme cases, they become
physically debilitating, limiting daily activities. Two types of tremors ex-
ist, essential and resting. Essential tremors are age related, generally
progress with the passing years, and results when someone uses muscles
to move a limb. Resting tremors appear to be the same, but occur while
the body is at rest. Alcoholism, drug withdrawal, thyroid conditions,
heavy metal poisoning, and medication can cause either type of tremor.
Essential tremors can be related to thyroid medication, lithium, anti-
seizure drugs, theophylline, and some antidepressants. Resting tremors
may be caused by antipsychotic medications like haloperidol (Haldol)
and olanzapine (Zyprexa). When an individual is very prone to tremors,
even normal doses of these drugs may hasten symptoms. Other medica-
tions can cause this phenomenon. Your pharmacist can assist you with
.more information if you think one of your medications could be causing a
tremor. However, before changing a dose or discontinuing a drug, con-
sult with your physician.

Live Oak has experienced
temperatures near 100 de-
grees over the past week.
WCTV Channel 6 TV weath-
er showed 97 one evening
last week. I know it had to
be that on a number of other
days also. The heat has been
so bad it's been stifling.
Hope it gets a little cooler
* soon. It's no fun when you
can't get outside and be
comfortable.
Hope everyone is enjoying
the tax free holidays through
July 31 at midnight on cer-
tain back-to-school items. A
similar holiday is going on
in Georgia. It's a good way
to save some real money so
get on out there and shop!

It doesn't seem possible the


summer is over .already. Of
course, the school vacation
summer used to last a month
longer until the day after La-
bor Day, but now the schools
let out earlier, as in mid
May. It's too hot to do much
anyway with the heat so I
guess the kids don't mind
too much.

Sheila Hiss, North Florida
Community College (NFCC)
Director of Library and
Learning Resources, attend-
ed the Fifth Annual Chancel-
lor's Leadership Seminar in
Tampa recently. Hiss was se-
lected by NFCC President
Morris G. Steen Jr. to attend
the three-day seminar which
trains future community col-
lege leaders.
The program was estab-
lished in 2000 by David A.
Armstrong, Florida's Chan-
cellor of Community Col-
leges and Workforce Educa-
tion, to groom current ad-
ministrators on the path to
assume greater leadership
roles. Over the past five
years, more than 140 leaders
have attended the train-
ing. According to Armstrong,
seminar participants will
keep in contact after they re-
turn to -their respective col-
leges, serving as a resource
and 'think tank' for the com-


munity college system.
"Hearing about the experi-
ences of various community
college presidents was eye-
opening," said Hiss. "I have
a much greater appreciation
for the challenges faced dai-
ly by our community college
leadership."
The seminar, held in his-
toric Ybor City just outside
the Tampa metro area, boast-
ed an agenda filled with na-
tionally-renowned speakers,
Florida Education Commis-
sioner John L. Winn, current
community college presi-
dents and former seminar
participants who each shared
their unique leadership expe-
riences.
Hiss and husband, Danny
Hales, reside in Live Oak.
They have two children:
Nina, 22, and J.D., 17.

Sandra Skipper is self-em-
ployed and has been a mentor
-for several years. Skipper
mentors Aida Caceres, a
tenth grader at Suwannee
High School. "I have always
had a desire to work with
young people and the Take
Stock in Children program
seemed a great way to get in-
volved. I may be the adult in
the mentoring sessions, but I
have always learned some-
thing from Aida. I have
gained such a sense of pur-
pose and a renewed faith in
our young people through
mentoring. Aida has so many
wonderful qualities, she is
honest and has a desire to
succeed in life. She has a
very close relationship with
her mother and a great love
for her family. Mentoring
has really changed my life!"
Skipper said.
Aida Caceres works the
concession stand at football
games and says, "This pro-
gram is important because it
inspires me to make some-
thing of myself, not only for
me but for my family and my
mentor as well. One thing I
love about my mentor is that
she is an active listener, she
always pays attention to what
I have to say. She is not only
my mentor, but a good friend.
I have someone to encourage
me and has made a difference
in my life."

formation about mentoring,

If you're interested in
knowing about the volunteer

county wants them run, you
can attend a workshop at
Live Oak City Hall at 7 p.m.
tomorrow night, July 28 be-

Also, see a Q and A in to-

If you own property, you
should get one of these in the

here just for good measure.
This is a huge issue because
of the lack of training and
equipment for the volunteers
and the special needs of the
county fire department. We
never know when we'll need
these folks and trust me, if
you do, you will be ever so
glad to see any of them com-
ing your way. Let's just hope
that new fire equipment for
the volunteers and county
fire will be gotten with the
increase if it passes. If that
doesn't happen, not many
property owners will agree to
any more increases and
rightfully so.

Gallup conducts pro-life survey

to sway Supreme Court


NASHVILLE, Tenn.
(BP)-If abortion is a key is-
sue during the next Supreme
Court confirmation battle,
then pro-lifers may have an
edge with the American pub-
lic, a new Gallup poll sug-
gests.
The poll of 1,005 adults
shows that pro-lifers are
more likely than pro-
choicers to believe that the
next Supreme Court justice
must agree with them on
abortion. Although there is
no opening on the court,
many observers believe
Chief Justice William Rehn-
quist will step down this
summer.
Gallup asked the public
"how important" it is that the
next nominee to the high
court share their views on
abortion. Forty-five percent
said "very important," 31
percent "somewhat impor-
tant," 15 percent "not too im-
portant" and 8 percent "not
important at all."
Among the group saying it
is "very important," 53 per-
cent are pro-life, 39 percent
pro-choice. That could prove
significant when pro-life and
pro-choice groups ask their
constituents to contact their
senators.
"Clearly, pro-life support-
ers have the edge in terms of
their interest in the abortion
position of future Supreme
Court nominees," Gallup's
Lydia Saad wrote in an on-
line. analysis. "... Theoreti-
cally, this should translate
into more pro-life communi-
cation to members of the
U.S. Senate, larger pro-life
rallies supporting or oppos-
ing a nominee, and more pro-
life support at election time."
But Saad added: "[T]he
pro-choice contingent that
cares about these appoint-
ments is not insignificant,
and it will undoubtedly wage
a pitched battle of its own."
Among all adults, 48 per-
cent say they are pro-choice,
44 percent pro-life. Never-
theless, the pro-life camp ap-
pears to have more energy.


Women comprise 61 per-
cent of the "very important"
group. Among those women,
55 percent are pro-life, 39
percent pro-choice - a find-
ing that counters claims that
women tend to be over-
whelmingly pro-choice.
Among the men in the "very
important" group, 50 percent
are pro-life, 39 percent pro-
choice.
Abortion is at the heart of
the current debate over Sen-
ate judicial filibusters. In
1973 the Supreme Court, in a
7-2 ruling, issued its land-
mark Roe v. Wade decision
legalizing abortion. Since
then pro-lifers have been
working to see it overturned.
Currently, pro-lifers have
three solid votes on the court
- Rehnquist, Antonin Scalia
and Clarence Thomas. A
fourth, Anthony Kennedy,
has sided with pro-lifers on
some issues. Rehnquist,
though, is battling thyroid
cancer and may retire this
year. Others may follow in
the near future. Including
Rehnquist, two justices are
in their 80s and two more are
in their 70s.
Even though a plurality of
Americans consider them-
selves pro-choice, pro-lifers
appear to have made
progress in the past decade.
The partial-birth abortion de-
bate may have played a sig-
nificant role.
In the poll, 53 percent said
abortion should be "legal un-
der certain circumstances,"
23 percent "legal under any
circumstances" and 22 per-
cent "illegal in all circum-
stances."
But in September 1995, the
numbers were much different
- 31 percent saying abor-
tion should always be legal
and only 12 percent saying it
should always be illegal. Lat-
er that year, the House and
Senate passed a bill banning
partial-birth abortion, which
was vetoed by President
Clinton in April 1996.
The debate over the grue-
some procedure may have


swayed some minds. By July
1996, the numbers began to
change, with 25 percent - a
drop of six percentage points
- saying abortion should al-
ways be legal. Since then,
the "legal under any circum-
stances" category hasn't
reached 30 percent - even
though it was in the 30s in
every poll between 1990 and
1995.
Partial-birth abortion is a
practice whereby an unborn
baby is partially delivered,
feet first, tiftil only the head
is left in the birth canal. The
baby's brains are then suc-
tioned out, killing the child.
Gallup did not mention
partial-birth abortion as be-
ing a cause for the changing
numbers but did note the
shift in public position.
"[T]he percentage saying
abortion should be illegal in
all circumstances has been
inching up in the last few
years - from 15 percent in
2000 to 22 percent today -
but this is the first time since
1985 that this extreme anti-
abortion view has been es-
sentially at parity with the
extreme pro-abortion rights
position," Saad wrote.
She added that the country
views abortion differently
than it did the last time a Re-
publican president nominat-
ed a justice for the Supreme
Court.
"[T]here is no doubt that
the landscape has changed
since the last two times a Re-
publican president filled a
Supreme Court vacancy -
in 1990 and 1991, when
President George H. W. Bush
nominated David Souter and
Clarence Thomas, respec-
tively," Saad wrote. "Com-
pared to the early 1990s ...
Americans today are much
less likely to say abortion
should be legal under any
circumstance, and more like-
ly to say that it should be il-
legal in all circumstances.
The poll was conducted
May 2-5.

Remember when the outback
had a video store? It started out
in the small rental apartment in
Miss Selma Hicks Blackmon's
large home located on the
southwest comer of CR 137
and CR 10-A, the two super
highways that run directly
through Wellborn. There was
such a boom in business that
the video empire moved to the
northeast comer of the same
crossroads, into the building
where Blake Lowe had, in days
of yore, owned and operated a
combination gas station and
grocery store.
Ernie and Nan Cawby were
the managers of the video
store. Ernie even had a selec-
tion of archery supplies for
those who liked to shoot things
with arrows. The store eventu-
ally closed, but the friendships
that were made have remained.
Ernie and Nan recently cele-
� brated their 55th wedding an-
niversary. I was among the
many guests invited to help
them enjoy their special day.
Friends and family gathered at
the Cawby home located just
off US 90, on the banks of
Lake Lona, east of Wellborn.
We enjoyed a day of fellow-
ship, delicious food and music
by the Columbia County Jam-
boree Band. At Nan's request, I
sang a couple of songs with
the band. Being shy as I am, it
was not easy but some how I
managed ... oh yeah! It was
an honor to be with these two
very sweet, special people on
their most special day. Ernie
and Nan, you know who
loves ya! I do.
Assistant Superintendent of
Suwannee County Schools Bill
Yanossy will be the guest
speaker at the Wellborn Neigh-
borhood Watch (WNW) meet-
ing on Thursday night, July 28.
Yanossy will speak on the pre-


paredness of our county
schools in the event of a disas-
ter. The program will begin at 7
p.m. at the Blake Lowe Com-
munity Center on 4th Ave. in
Wellborn. Refreshments will
be served afterwards.
Remember the WNW Block
Party to be held Friday, Aug.
12. The WNW will serve ham-
burgers, hot dogs, salads,
desserts and beverages at no
charge. Steve Lee will headline
entertainment. But please re-
member to bring your own
chairs and, if possible, a cov-
ered side dish would be greatly
appreciated. There will be a
raffle drawing for a two-night
stay at The Spirit of the Suwan-
nee Music Park and Camp-
ground in Live Oak that in-
cludes, dinner-for-two, horse-


back riding and a canoe trip
down the world famous
Suwannee River. This prize
package is donated by The
Spirit of the Suwannee Music
Park and Campground and will
be the year's fund-raiser for the
WNW. So be sure to buy as
many tickets as possible. Who
knows? You may win a fabu-
lous prize and help a very wor-
thy cause at the same time.
Last, but certainly not least,
condolences go to the family of
Joyce Taylor who recently
passed away at her home in
Taylorville. Her husband
Robert, former Suwannee
County Commissioner for Dis-
trict Four, was the love of her
life for 52 years and she was
his rock of support. She will be
missed greatly, not only by her
family, but also by the many
friends that were privileged to
know her, and I count myself
as one of the privileged. May
her family find comfort from
the heavens above.
It's that time ... pray for our
troops and their families, help
your neighbor, be kind to a
stranger and tell those you love
that you love them. Remember,
things worth cherishing begin
in the heart not the head.

2004 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
The Wellborn Water System
We're very pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is
designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our
constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water We want you
to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect
our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water Our water source is a
single well that draws ground water from the Floridan Aquifer, a local water source.
The Department of Environmental Protection has performed a Source Water Assessment on our
system and a search of the data sources indicated no potential sources of contamination near our
well. The assessment results are available on DEP Source Water Assessment and Protection
Program website at http://www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.
We are pleased to report that our drinking water meets all federal and state requirements.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Mr.
Pasco Jarvis at (386) 963-3641. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their
water utility.
The Wellborn Water System routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water
according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this
report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2004.
Data obtained before January 1, 2004, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing
done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand
these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in
drinking water MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment
technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below
which there is no know or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or

On Saturday, April 30, Lesley Fry's and Dr. Channing that engaged the imagination
DeeDee McManaway's second grade classes and the senses.


from Suwannee Primary School took an awe-
some field trip to Epcot at Walt Disney
World.
The students began their day with a visit to
the Universe of Energy, a fast paced explo-
ration of the forces that fuel our lives and the
universe itself.
Students then took a ride with Bill Nye the
Science Guy. Mission Space was a thrilling
ride to find out what it feels like to be an as-
tronaut. Each student was a pilot, navigator,
engineer or commander on this white knuck-
le mission to.Mars.
At Innoventions the students witnessed
how science and technology enhance our
lives at ever-changing, hands-on exhibits.
Where's the Fire is America's largest fire
safety and prevention exhibit.
The breathtaking attraction, Living Seas,
the children were able to gain a better under-
standing of mankind's dependence on the
seas, our past relationship with them and the
role they will play in the future.
At Spaceship Earth the children boarded a
vehicle and witnessed milestones in commu-
nications vital to man's survival from Cro-.
Magnon cave paintings to electronic space
communications.
We ended with a tour of Future World in
Imagination. Imagination was a journey with


After lunch the children toured the second
half of Epcot, World Showcase.
World Showcase is made up of twelve
countries all over the world.
In Mexico, the children viewed traditional
wood carvings of Oaxaca and sailed on" a boat
through El rio del Tiempo.
In Norway we took a boat ride back to the
era of the Vikings and Japan had a exhibit of
over 350 tin toys.
Each country had replica architecture com-
mon to that country.
The students dined on pastries at the bak-
ery in France while viewing the Eiffel Tower.
When the children entered World Show-
case they were able to participate in Kidcot
by receiving a blank mask. Kidcot is a
hands-on program that teaches multicultural
awareness and appreciation for each country.
Each time they visited a country they could
decorate their mask with paper symbols and
colors representing that country. At the end
of the day each mask was beautifully deco-
rated and ready to be worn.
The day ended with IllumiNations: Re-
flections of Earth, a fireworks display, in the
World Showcase Lagoon. Mrs. McManaway
and Mrs. Fry would like to thank all the peo-
ple that made this field trip a fun and educa-
tional experience for the students.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams,
ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the
ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in same cases, radioactive material, and can
pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment
plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result
from urban storm water runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas
production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban
storm water runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are
by-products of industrial process and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations,
urban storm water runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas
production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the
amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must
provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small
amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the
water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be
obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-
426-4791. . .. .. . . . . . . . .

Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year In
order to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, we sometimes need to make improvements
that will benefit all of our customers. These improvements are sometimes reflected as rate structure
adjustments. Thank you for understanding.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general
population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing
chemotherapy, person who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other
immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk infections. These
people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC
guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Crytosporidium and other
microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (1-800-426-
4791).

improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring
the quality of your water If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided,

help from Snider.
The International Cat Asso-
ciation's 2004-05 International
Best of Breed Bengal in the
World is IWSGC Suwannee
Fudge Ripple, a Bengal male
cat bred at Snider's home in
rural Suwannee county and
hand-raised lovingly by Snider.
Snider said Ripple got his
name rightfully. When the cat
was seven weeks old, Snider
turned the litter loose in his liv-
ing room to watch them play
while he enjoyed a bowl of
fudge ripple ice cream. "He
went nuts trying to get some
ice cream, and it was Fudge
Ripple ice cream!" Snider
laughs. Thus, the name Fudge
Ripple. And, Snider said, it's
that name and the cat's coloring
and demeanor that has made
Ripple known throughout the
country. "When I arrived at a
show in Texas recently one of
the participants asked me if I
had brought Fudge Ripple!"
Snider said. Snider said the
cat's popularity at the shows
has not only made the cat well-
known, but Suwannee County
has been put on the cat world's
map because everyone knows
he's from Live Oak in Suwan-
nee County, Florida.
A cream and brown Bengal
cat, better known as Ripple,
became the number one TICA
International Best of Breed
Bengal this year. TICA has
shows all over Europe, Ar-
gentina, Brazil, Japan, Aus-
tralia, Holland, Belgium, Swe-
den, Denmark and Switzerland
and had one in Israel last year.
Snider will host a party at the
TICA annual show in Syra-
cuse, NY on Labor Day week-
end to honor the cat which has


achieved the highest status in
TICA's Bengal show he can
achieve. Snider said it's tradi-
tion for the owner or breeder of
the world champion to host a'
cake and ice cream party at this
event. Of course, says Snider,
the choice of flavor for the ice
cream will be Fudge Ripple!
Snider said he recently went
to the South Central Regional
Show and Awards Banquet in
Arlington, Texas, where he was
awarded a certificate making
him an honorary member of
the South Central region that
includes Texas, Oklahoma,
Mexico and Costa Rica. Snider
said it was a real honor and
only a few of these honorary
memberships have been given.
Snider has been breeding
cats since 1995 and entering
shows as far as west Texas,
New York and areas in the
North and in the South. Snider
showed Ripple in 30 shows this
year and last year and the cat
was the top Bengal in 28 of the
30 shows.
"Bengal is probably the most
popular breed at the shows,
which means there are proba-
bly more of them entered than
in any other category," Snider
stated.
"I never dreamed in my life
to have the number one Bengal
and for him to be a snow mar-
ble...I just never imagined,"
Snider said this week.
"When Ripple won, he was
at the Safari Show where the
cream of the crop is shown
from all over the world.... 182
Bengals showed......everyone
one of them the top of the line,"
Snider said.. "They give rib-
bons to the top 10 cats in each
of three rings...when it was
over and done, Fudge Ripple
won!" Snider said.


US 90 West (Next To 84 Lumber) Lake City, 386-752-93031 TICA 04-05 Best of Breed Bengal in the world Fudge Ripple.


Ripple's breed is not the cud-
dly type, but he has a personal-
ity that attracts people and the
champ loves to go to the shows.
"He shows in my lap most of
the time rather than in a cage,"
Snider said. "Some cats are just
natural born showmen."
Snider describes Ripple as a
snow Bengal. "He's a seal
mink....he's the first "snow"
Bengal in the world to ever be
number one in TICA," Snider
said. "Spectators come by his
cage at the show and they've
never seen one like him and
they just googly-eye him be-
cause they've never seen any-
thing like that," Snider said.
Snider has had 17 regional
winners but most of them are
rescue alley cats. But, Ripple's a
pure-bred, one of the 48 recog-
nized breeds of cats. Snider

Attorney General wins lawsuit over sale of phony insurance bonds


Attorney General Charlie
Crist announced his office has
won a lawsuit against a state
of Washington-based compa-
ny that sold fraudulent bonds
purporting to eliminate the
need for standard insurance
coverage, a false claim that
cost 425 Florida victims $300
per person, for a total loss of
$127,500. Leon County Cir-
cuit Judge Jonathan Sjostrom
entered a final judgment


against Global Healings Soci-
ety and owner Joseph Michael
Gardinier, requiring the defen-
dants to pay restitution as well
as fines of $1,000 per victim, a
total of more than $550,000.
"This judgment marks a vic-
tory for Florida consumers
and sends a clear message that
fraud of this type has no place
in our state," said Crist.
"Floridians depend on insur-
ance offered by reputable


agents to protect them from
significant financial liability,
and those offering phony al-
ternatives face serious legal
consequences."
An investigation conducted
by the Attorney General's Eco-
nomic Crimes Division re-
vealed that Global Healings So-
ciety was selling what it
claimed were "financial bonds"
over the Internet. Gardinier,
owner and caretaker of the or-


ganization, directed its activi-
ties and was responsible for the
various bond programs spon-
sored by Global Healings. The
bonds purported to protect the
bearers from financial responsi-
bility in the event of any inci-
dent that would warrant an in-
surance claim. Not only were
the bonds fraudulent, but there
was no money available for the
injured party in the event that a
claim was filed against a bearer


of the bonds. Types of bonds of-
fered by Global Healings in-
cluded an auto bond, a health
bond, a home equity bond, a
student bond, a "Benefit for
Life" bond and a community fi-
nancial bond. The organization
was not licensed to do business
in Florida, nor was it an autho-
rized insurer in the state.
The Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Ve-
hicles determined that the orga-


nization's auto bond card was
not valid to prove insurance
coverage as required by law. In
response, Gardinier conducted
a series of conference calls to
members of the organization
soliciting donations to cover the
cost of suing the State of Flori-
da. Similar solicitations were
made in Montana and Washing-
ton, where Global Healings has
already been prohibited from
conducting business.

19th Century Writer's View of Suwannee County


This year the Suwannee Democrat'
traces its origin from 1884.
Ninety-five years have passed since
that time and great changes have taken
place in Suwannee County. What was
Suwannee County like in 1884?
In.1885 Wanton S. Webb edited and
compiled a book entitled "Webb's
Historical, Industrial And Biographical
Florida."
This article is reprinted below as it
appeared in that book.
"Suwannee County - area, 660
square miles or 422,400 acres.
Population in 1880, 6,072.
In geographical position Suwannee
County is probably more pleasantly
and advantageously situated than any
other portion of the State of Florida.
Occupying very nearly a central
position and lying just at the northern
extremity of the peninsular, it is
sufficiently distant from the coasts of
the Atlantic on one side and the Gulf on
the other to be comparatively free from
the gales which are there of frequent
occurence and so productive of damage
to farming interests.
The county is bounded on their n'6rth,
west, and partly on the south by the
Siwannee River, by which it is
sopamratd from the counties of
Hamilton, Madison, and Lafayette; on
the east by Columbia: and partly on the
�,,.uh -. i. -r ... * P*,,, . - rh


point of shipment on the coast, besides
the local demand for it.
The soil is generally a fertile sandy
loam, with a subsoil of clay, easy of
cultivation and well adapted to the
retention of fertilizers. There are very
little waste lands or such as cannot be
easily made available.
The marketable productions of
Suwannee County, in common with
other counties of the state, have here
before consisted chiefly of cotton, corn,
and sugar, the climate and soil being
admirably adapted to the sea-island or
longstaple cotton and sugar cane.
Where the culture of the orange has
been tried it has been successful.
The culture of the grape is destined
to become one of the leading features in
the horticulture of Suwannee. The
Scuppernong grape has been for
several years successfully cultivated,
and large number of this variety have
been planted and are now growing
finely. Recent experiments with other
varieties, as the Catawba, Isabella, etc.
have demonstrated the practicability of
producing them in great abundance
and of fine quality. The forest abounds
with the wild Fox grape and
Muscadine, from which a very delicious.
wine is manufactured.
There is no portion of the state and
I,-. r.,'a' , llh, JiJ. I,1 the Urnied


there can be no uncertainty as to the
profits resulting from vegetable-
culture. Asparagus, beans of every
variety, beets, cabbage, carrots,
cauliflower, celery, corn, cress,
cucumbers, egg plant, leek, lettuce,
melons of every kind, okra, onions,
peas of every description, pepper,
potatoes , sweet and Irish, pumpkins,
radishes, rutabagas, squashes, toma-
toes, and turnips produce abundant
crops.
The Florida, Central and Western
Railroad enters this county. at
Columbus, the confidence of the
Suwannee and Withlacoochee rivers,
thence running east through the heart
of the county to'Wellborn, a distance of
25 miles. The Savannah, Florida, and
SWestern Railroad from Live Oak runs
due north and south through the
county, thus giving lines of railroad
connecting it with Tallahassee, the
capital of the state, 83 miles;
Jacksonville, on the St. John's River,
80 miles; Fernandina, on the Atlantic
Coast, 100 miles; and upon the Gulf
Coast with Cedar Keys, 150 miles; St.
Mark's, 100 miles distance; and with-
Savannah, Ga., 180 miles distant; and
by way of the Macon and Burnswick
Railroad with Macon, Atlanta, and the
great west.
With all these advantages tof soil,

Railroad at Dowling Park, The bridge was torn down a number of years ago.


separates it from Alachua.
The Suwannee River being navi-
gable for steamboats the greater
portion of the year, gives almost the
advantages of the seacoast, and affords
fine facilities, for the transportation of
timber and heavy freights throughout
all that portion bordering on it.

No county in the state can surpass
Suwannee in the quantity and value of
her timber. The large supply (almost
inexhaustable) is very easy of access by
means of the Suwannee River and the
railroads. At many points on the

Suwannee and Santa Fe Rivers, and
the creeks running into them,
water-power of the finest capacity may
be obtained, and steam saw-mills can
biade profitable at almost any point
the railroad for converting .this
9 er into lumber, and a ready
et can be found for it almost any


States where peaches can be raised
more successfully than is this county.
The character of the soil' being
especially adapted to this delicious
fruit, its increased production as an
article of export will very soon be a
source of very considerable profit to
the producers.

Strawberries also are successfully
raised, of fine quality and abundant
yield, while in many portions of the
county are growing wild 'in the woods
large quantities of delicious black-
berries, and whortleberries.
The cultivation of vegetables for
market in this county, already a
success, is destined to supersede the
cultivation of cotton to a very
considerable extent. With the facilities
for cheap and rapid transportation
from almost any portion of the county
to the markets of the whole country,


educational facilities, and the means of
quick transportation it can offer very
great enducements to immigrants; and
assure all good men, from all sections of
the country, a cordial welcome and
cheerful assistance in finding homes in
the county.

Branford is a thriving village of 300
inhabitants, located on the banks of the
famed Suwannee River about 25 miles
south of. the flourishing town of Live
Oak. Branford sprang into existence
upon the completion of the Savannah,

Florida,. and Western Railroad
Company's line to this point in 1882,
since which time its progress has been
remarkable. The scenery in the vicinity
is very fine. Transportation is easy arid
frequent; 'there are six regular daily
trains, and a streamer each week to
and from Cedar Keys. Among the
leading business houses are Messrs.


Ruff & Swearengen and S.
Timmermon, general merchandise; R.
D. Bigelow and Win. Simpson,
physicians and druggists; Brantley &
Dempsey, confectionery, etc.; W. W.
Harrier, livery stable; R. A. Ivey,
Branford House; Julian Harper,
restaurant; J. J. Painter, market; A.
M. Ingersoll, lumber mill; Ruff. &
Swearengen, grist mill and cotton gin;
B. A. Brantley, postmaster; and others
Rev. McK. F. McCook is pastor of the
M. E. Church. There are good schools
and several excellent private boarding

houses. The climate is generally
healthy, and the tourist will do well to
pay a visit to Branford.
Houston is located on the Florida
Central and Western Railroad. The
time to Jacksonville is three hours and
a half; fare, . 3.45. The village contains
a population of 150 has one church.


Methodist, Rev. Gasques, pastor; good
common schools; and a post office in
charge of G. R. Thralls, Esq.
Ichtucknee is a postoffice town
located near the head of the river of
that name. The nearest large town is
Suwannee, 26 miles distant and
accessible only by a day's travel by'
private conveyance. It was settled by
the postmaster, Mr. M. J. 'Sandford, in
1875, and now numbers 23 families.

Little River is located .about 17 miles
southeast of Live Oak and near the
' dividing line between Suwannee and
Columbia counties. It is six miles from
Wellborn Station, on the Florida
central and Western Railroad, and
seven from Pine Mount and McAlpin,
on the Live Oak and Charlotte Harbor
Branch of the Savannah, Florida, and
Western Railway. Rev. R. F. Rogers,
pastor of the Baptist Church and


village postmaster, is extensively
engaged in fruit culture, and has an
exceedingly fine orchard of "Honey"
peaches. A belt of fine timber
surrounds the town, and the natural
advantage of the place ,can hardly e
enumerated.
Live Oak, the county seat, is located
in the center of a fertile district, and in
about the center of the county, at the
junction of the Florida Central and
Western, the Savannah, Florida, and
Western Railroads, 82 miles west of
Jacksonville. There is a turpentine
distillery here, steam cotton ginning
establishments, corn mills, a new hotel,,
about 20 stores, large steam saw mills,
the Florida Bulletin, the Florida
Intelligence, both weekly news-
papers; and the Florida Baptist, a
monthly. Live Oak is surrounded by
several fruit farms, is an important
shipping point, and rapidly increasing
in importance.


Seventy Years Ago Ethel House Was Live Oak Attraction


Now only a memory, but once a show
place in the little community of Live
Oak was the Ethel House of more than
70 years ago. Here the Jacksonville.
drummer displayed his wares, young
couples honeymooned or residents and
travelers gathered for heated discus-


sions back in the eighties of the last
century,
It was erected in 1886 under the
direction of Mrs. Nancy M. Parhsley,
widow of a pioneer of the community
who owned much of the land on which
'Live Oak now stands.


Mrs. Parshley ran the hotel for only
a short time, later leasing it. It was
later knovin as the Conner House.
After the rule of the Conners it had
many owners and lessees, and in its
final existence was used merely as a
lodging house without the dining room


being operated.
Back in the nineties it was the scene
of many a heated educational argument
as many parents went there to explain
to teachers about what had gone wrong
in school that day, for it was here that
many of them lived.


Like practically all of the hotels, it
was built as close to the railroad station
as possbile for in those days practically
all travelers came to town by rail. The
location was opposite the present
station.
The old landmark Caught fire one


night in November 1915 and was
almost destroyed. Guests were able to
flee from the building without injury.
The following March it was sold to H.
W. Taylor who revealed that he
expected to construct several small
buildings on the site.-

SUWANNEE BASKETBALL COACH CHRIS MARTELLO. . .,


Janet Schrader-Seccafico
Democrat Reporter
For the first time, Suwannee
has a summer basketball program
that includes many local area
teams. The Summer Bulldogs
played Branford, Ft. White, Lake
City, Perry and Mayo in a sum-
mer filled with good workouts
and lots of time on the court for
both JV and varsity players.
"It takes everybody working
together to make it work,"
Suwannee basketball coach Chris
Martello said. "This is the first
year with Branford and Mayo
participating. If all the coaches
work together we can do this
thing."
The Dogs took on Mayo at
home Monday, July 18 in a two-
game series that started at 6:30
p.m.
Suwannee won the first game
60-51 with a combined varsity
and JV team. The Dogs took the
second game in almost an identi-
cal score, this time 61-51.
Each game consisted of two
20-minute halves. The score was
30-29 in the second game at the


end of the first half. Mayo pulled
ahead once, but Suwannee came
away with the final victory.

Janet Schrader-Seccafico
Democrat Reporter
With an amazing score of 85
points, Alex Favos took home a first
place win at the recent Bull Bash and
Barrel Race in the Saturday night ses-
sion. Favos rode the second bull of
the night all the way past eight sec-
onds and left the bull in a perfect two-


point landing. Brandon Chastain,
aboard a bull named Droopy, placed
second with a score of 74 points.
Zack Jordan took home third with 73
points riding a bull named Midnight.
Friday night's winner was Wayne
White out of Georgia.
The action was fast 1
and furious Satur-
day night with a
large crowd on hand


to watch. It was bulls 20, riders three
after 23 riders had competed. Local
Junior Rodeo Association bullriding
champ Josh Skeen was hurt, when he
was stepped on after his ride.

Hamilton County sent two groups
of riders to entertain the fans. The Ju-
nior Quadrille and the Senior
Quadrille performed Saturday night.
Fifteen women ran barrels for a
jackpot. Friday night's winner was
Cookie Morton. Saturday night,
Melissa Hart took home the win
* with a time of 16.513.
The rodeo was put on in
- conjunction with Walt's Live


Oak Ford sponsorship and Georgia
Rodeo Productions and The Southern
Rough stock Association. Bulls came
from all over. Many were PBR bulls.
A percent of the money raised from
the Bull Bash went to support Suwan-
nee County schools.

FWC offers classes on alligator


hunting; permits available
l;i:'^







� ofer ..ase on .alligator
hunting -.rmits .,a.v.ailable- .,.. _ .


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) is offering al-
ligator hunters no-cost, three-
hour classes to help prepare
them for the coming
statewide alligator harvest,
which runs Sept. 1 through'
Oct. 8.
This is an opportunity for
hunters who have never par-
ticipated in the states alliga-
tor hunts to learn what hunt-
ing alligators is all about.


The class topics include:
preparing for the hunt; hunt-
ing techniques and safety;
harvesting and processing;
caring for your alligator skin;
and alligator rules and regu-
lations.
Classes will be offered at
the following locations:
* Saturday, July 30, 1 - 4
p.m., Okeechobee County
Civic Center, I.5i'Ii.S. Hwy.
98 North, Okeechobee. For

FWC offers unique hunting opportunities


In addition to regular and
special quota hunts, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) is offering sportsmen
some unique hunting oppor-
tunities for the coming sea-
son.
The FWC is providing
sportsmen mobility-impaired
hunts, supervised youth
hunts, a family hunt, quail
hunts and track vehicle and
airboat hunts on wildlife
management areas (WMAs).
Applications will be avail-
able June 30 from FWC re-
gional offices and online at
www.wildflorida.org/hunt-
ing/quota_hunt/default.html.
The application period for
submitting applications to be
included in the random draw-
ing is July 13-29. Like the
regular and special quota
hunt applications, these ap-
plications must be submitted
through the internet, at tax
collector offices or at any li-
cense agent. Applications
are no longer accepted by
mail.
Mobility-impaired, hunts
are for persons who require

Computer

special equipment. These
hunts are not intended for
hunters who have Florida
Disabled Person Hunting
and Fishing Certificates, but
rather those who are perma-
nently confined to a wheel-
chair, persons who require
the use of mechanical aids
(crutches and walkers) to
walk or those with complete
single-leg amputations.
Another unique hunt is for
hunters 8-15 years old. Two
WMAs in the North Central
Region (Camp Blanding and
Andrews) offer opportunities
for non-hunting adults to su-
pervise young hunters on
public hunting areas where
the number of hunters and
the hunting areas are rigidly
controlled to provide an op-
timum learning experience
and.maximum safety. These
hunts are popular, and the
number of applicants ex-
ceeds the number of spaces


available each year.
The new Matanzas WMA
will offer a family hunt this
year. Applicants age 18 or
older may apply for a permit.
The permit holder is re-
quired to bring from one to
two children ages 8-15. Un-
like the youth hunt, the fam-
ily hunt allows the adult su-
pervisor to hunt with the
children.
Wildlife management ar-
eas in the southern part of
the state offer hunters an un-
usual challenge because of
their open-marsh landscape.
Hunting these areas requires
special vehicles, and the
FWC has established quotas
on the number of vehicles al-
lowed.
Permits to operate track
vehicles on the Rotenberger,
Everglades and Holey Land
WMAs and permits to oper-
ate airboats on the Ever-
glades and Francis S. Taylor


If you ,are Iookin for.
a great l d with an
infectious smile and a
caring personality, look no
further than Riley. Riley is
a bright, imaginative child
who is looking for a family
who %\ill lo\e him and
keep him safe forever. An avid reader, R4ley does
well in school and works hard to earn gqo.d grades.
1-is favorite activities include practicing:karate and
playing with his helicopter, which is his favorite toy.
He looks forward to being able one day to take real
karate classes and wants to pass on these skills to an
adoptive family.

WMAs are issued in two ran-
dom selections.
A quota hunt .permit will
be required to hunt quail on
the Blackwater WMA Hut-
ton Unit and. Blackwater
Field Trial Area in the
Northwest Region. There
are seven two-day hunts
available on the Hutton Unit


S...

Don Hale Jr. and Fain Skinner do well in feature race at New Smyrna Raceway


Anderson, Bass and Deschamps top Clyde Hart Memorial Night at


The bottom dropped out just
as the Super Late Models were
getting ready to qualify for the
7th Annual Clyde Hart Memo-
rial. After almost an hour and
a half rain delay, vehicles were
sent out to dry the track. With
the after rain humidity that
only Florida seems to have, the
track was dried and it was done
to business.
Twenty six Super Lates,
twenty eight Mini Stocks and
12 Pro Trucks qualified for
what turned out to be a per-
fecWat race night. The on-
track autograph session was
cancelled due to the rain delay
but fans were not disappointed
as Tater Porter, Grand Mar-
shall, put it a different way to
start the race. As Porter stood
in front of the fans and the cars
lined up on the track in a Bull
Rider's standard safety wear -
his hat - the command "Gen-
tleman - GET r DONE" was
given.
Wayne Anderson, defending
champion of the 2004 Clyde
Hart Memorial, set on the pole
with his fast time of
18.096.followed by B.J.
McLeod 18.121, Mac Johnson
18.128, Jason Boyd 18.150
and Brian Finney 18.173.. The
field was set, last minute
warm up laps were made and
the track was dry, time to race.
Anderson set on the pole but
on the green it was B.J.
McLeod who pulled to the lead
over Anderson, Johnson,
Boyd, and Choquette. Boyd
took no time in passing John-
son for third but on lap 3,
McLeod began to slip back-
wards as. he seemed to get
loose in lie-rear-end. McLeod
gathered it back up but found
himself instead of first, eighth.
After having one good car, a
car that would have been hard
to beat, B.J. McLeod goes into
the pits with a broken rear-end.
Anderson assumed the lead
followed by Boyd, Johnson,
Choquette, Scofield and
Finney. With Florida's sum-
mer heat, cars can do strange
things as Mac Johnson looses
all power in his steed coming
off turn 2 on lap 16. Joining
Johnson in the pits is Jody
Turner from Jacksonville who
needs some crew attention and
Mario Gosselin who's crew
determines that he is done for
the night.
The race goes green again
but Don Hale Jr. brings out the


yellow as he spins in Lake
Turn 2. Hale is fine and maybe
a little cooler from the lake.
Chet Morrison has now gone
into the pits.
One more try and it is green
again as Anderson, Boyd, Cho-
quette, Scofield, Finney, Cope,
Pierce Froelich, Warren, and
Etheredge lead the way. Cope
passes Finney taking over fifth
as Finney settles into sixth.
Suddenly the fourth place car
slows and begins to crawl
around the backstretch to the
pit entrance. The race goes
yellow as Scofield sees what
would have been a top five fin-
ish go down the drain.
Once again the green comes
out with Anderson, Boyd,
Choquette, Cope and Finney in
the top five. But it is a short
green as David Froelich brings
out the yellow as he spins
down low on the track in the
water and hits the wall.
Froelich now retires to the pits.
Lap 55 goes green as Ander-
son is in control followed by
Boyd,, Choquette, Cope, and
Finney. The action is heating
up as Finney chases Cope and
Choquette is right ono Boyd.
Shelnut, who wheeled the red,
white and blue car for the ocas-
sion, retires into the pits with
mechanical problems as Cho-
quette continues to let Boyd
know "I am here".
Steve Weaver, who races at
Hialeah Speedway, brings out
the yellow as he spins coming
down the frontstretch but does
a great job of saving the car
from the wall. The race re-
sumes on lap 74 as Choquette
continues to let Boyd know he
is there. Warren passes Pierce
for sixth as Pierce goes back to
seventh. Fain Skinner retires
from the race into the pits.
Boyd does a valiant job of
holding off the hard charge of
Choquette but Choquette sees
an opportunity and takes over
second as Boyd goes to third
followed by Cope and Finney.
The yellow comes out, as one
car spins in the top of turns 3
and 4 wth Bobby Fleckinger,
Patrick Conrad and Dalton
Zehr all up in the turn wall but
not really hurt. Sixteen cars
are left on lap 84 as Anderson
leads the way over Choquette,
Boyd, Cope, Finney, Warren,
Pierce, Foster, Wayne Morris
and Chris Fontaine. Fontaine
lets Morris know that he is
there as he tucks neatly under


Morris but Morris holds.
Finney is now all over Cope
for fourth but Cope "Mr. Ex-
itement" is holding on. The
yellow comes out as three cars
try to go three wide in turn I
which does not work. Morris
spins in the trio and rejoins the
field in the rear of the lead lap.
With only a few short laps
to go, Brian Finney's engine
decides enough is enough and
quits moving Warren into the
fifth place spot. Cope passes
Boyd for third and Choquette
for second but does not have
enough time to catch Ander-
son.
Anderson takes the check-
ered flag followed by Jimmy
Cope, Jeff Choqcp,uette, Jason
Boyd and Jacob Warren. In
tech, Choquette was dq'd due
to weight changing the top five
to Wayne Anderson, Jimmy
Cope, Jason Boyd, Jacob War-
ren, and Martin Pierce.
Brandon Johnson had the
pole for the 50 lap Pro Truck
race but it was Sean Bass who
quickly took the point over
Johnson, Matt Martin, George
Gorham and fast qualifier Dal-
ton Zehr. Gorham puts the
heat on Martin and takes over
third as Martin settles into
fourth. Suddenly Johnson
finds his hands full of a hard
charging Gorham who is tak-
ing over second as Johnson
goes to thrid. With very few
cautions, it is a very exciting
race as young Chad Akins
moves his way from the rear of
the field towards the front.
The race goes smooth up until
lap 38 when David Castello
spins coming down the
IflIo.-[Inechi. . Ca eilio is.
pushed into the pits and done
after a very good race for the
Mini Stock driver.
Bass continues to lead the
way on the restart followed by
Gorham, Zehr, Jamie Skinner,
Matt Martin and Akins.
Dawayne Barrus gets little
sideways coming off four with
Marty Wolf giving him a little
push as he had no where to go
as Barrus turned sideways.
Wolf finally is able to slow and
Barrus is fine. Wolf and Bar-
rus rejoined the field in the rear
for the restart.
With no more cautions, Bass
continues to lead the field al-
though Gorham tries over and
over again to take the lead but
Bass is on a mission for the
win. Bass takes the checkered


followed by George Gorham,
Brandon Johnson, Dalton Zehr
and Jamie Skinner.
Raymond Folwell had the
pole for the 50 lap Mini Stock
event but there was trouble on
the start as a mass pile of Mini
Stocks piled up in turns 3 and
4 when one spun and all the
other joined trying to avoid
each other. It was a total
restart with Ronnie Larson
leading the way over Folwell,
Gary Roebuck, Tom Zimmer-
man, and Chris Hooker. But
once again it was a short green
as Josh Hermann, Mark Mo-
niz, Andrew Robertson, and
Billy Carlbert meet in turn 4.
Hermann goes in for crew at-
tention but the others were ba-
sically done for the night.
Larson holds the point on the
restart followed by Roebuck,
Hooker, Folwell, and Robbie
Yoakam. Folwell falls out as
Robbie Storer comes into the
top five in fifth. The yellow is
thrown again for Larson and
Roebuck who have gotten to-
gether in turns 2 with Chris


Thornton coming in on the
hook with a severely damaged
car. Larson and Roebuck re-
join the field in the rear but
Thornton is done.
Chris Hooker now leads the
way followed by Yoakam,
Storer, Folwell, and our Geor-
gia driver Billy Chancy. The
caution comes out for Ronnie
Hicks who has spun coming
down the frontstretch. The
races goes back green with
Hooker, Yoakam, Storer, Fol-
well and Chancy in the top
five.
Suddenly Joshua Robertson
spins coming down the
frontstretch with Wayne Wells
and Hicks tangling in with no
place to go. All the drivers are
fine but towed in for the night.
Once again another restart as
Hooker has the point but Keith
Roggen has problems and is at
a dead stop -up in turn 4 and
Storer goes in with problems.
Thus another yellow comes
out.
Hooker holds the point fol-
lowed by Robbie Yoakam,

Since 1988, the FWC has
offered alligator hunts,
which provide a thrilling,
hands-on, face-to-face hunt-
ing adventure that is unlike
any other hunting experience
imaginable.
Sale of alligator permits
began June 6, but more than
2,000 Alligator Harvest Per-
mits are still available on a
first-come, first-served basis
through Sept. 20. Permit
holders are authorized to take
two alligators from designat-
ed areas during specific har-
vest periods. Alligator har-
vest areas are listed at
MyFWC.com/alligator under
Alligator Harvest Permit
Availability.
Applicants have their pref-
erence of applying at any
county tax collectors office,
license agent (retail outlet
that sells hunting and fishing
licenses), online at
MyFWC.com/license or by
calling toll-free 1-888-
HUNT-FLORIDA (486-
8356) from anywhere in the
United States or Canada.
To reserve a permit, appli-


cants must submit payment
for an Alligator Trapping Li-
cense and two alligator-hide
validation tags, or provide
proof of a valid Alligator
Trapping License (must be
valid through Oct. 8) plus
pay the fee for two hide vali-
dation tags. No other hunt-
ing licenses are required.
The cost for a Resident Al-
ligator Trapping License and
hide validation tags is $272,
and non-residents pay
$1,022. Any hunter who
takes an alligator must com-
plete and send in an Alligator
Harvest Report Form. The
information gathered from
these forms enables FWC bi-
ologists to monitor popula-
tion trends and impacts of the
annual harvest.
An Alligator Trapping
Agent License is also avail-
able for $52, which allows
the license holder to assist a
trapper in taking alligators,
but only in the presence of
the permitted trapper. All
persons seeking a harvest
permit must be at least 18
years old by Sept. 1, and only
one harvest permit per per-
son will be issued.

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

SURGE PROTECTION PROGRAM: This
program is aimed at helping to protect members
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.

Suwannee Valley Electric is owned by those we serve.

Long-term

care options
Most people envision themselves as young and healthy. No one wants to think that
someday they may be unable to eat, bathe or get dressed on their own, or that they
could have a disease like Alzheimer's. Long-term care is what you'd need to help
you perform daily activities if you had an ongoing illness or disability. You may be in
your home, an assisted living facility or a nursing home. In fact, about 60 percent of
people who reach 65 will need long-term care at some point.
But of course, it comes with a price. According to the Federal Long-term Care
Insurance Program, the average nursing home stay is 2.6 years and the national annual
cost of a semi-private room is $52,000. Nursing home costs go up about 5 percent
each year. By the year 2030, they are estimated to reach nearly $20.0,000.
So who will pay for it? Your adult children may be financially unable. Medicare
covers only a limited amount of care after a hospital stay, and Medicaid will apply
only when your savings run out. Health insurance covers medical care for illness,
injuries or hospital stays. Disability insurance replaces only the income you lose if
you can't work after an accident or injury.
However, there is help available. Long-term care insurance can cover the cost of this
care and protect your assets. Once you qualify, you'll remain eligible as long as you
pay your premiums. Apply as soon as possible; the premium is based on your age
when you get the insurance, and it usually stays at that rate. In most cases, you cannot
qualify for long-term care insurance if you are already ill. Remember -- long-term
care insurance claims may be paid 10 or 20 years after the policy is written. That's
why it's a good idea to choose a stable insurance company with a history of writing
long-term care policies. Check with ratings services before making a choice. When
shopping around, look for a policy that you can customize with the right combination
of benefits for you such as:
* Location of care: in your home, in a nursing home, in an adult day center or in an
assisted living facility
* Type of care: skilled nursing care, custodial care, home health aides
* Options for benefits (pay monthly or daily) and length of coverage
* Flexibility in applying benefits
* The number of days that you pay before your policy benefits begins, (ranging from
30 to 365 days)
* Coverage of mental illness such as Alzheimer's
It's a difficult thing that you likely don't want to think about, but getting long-term
care insurance now will save you headaches and hassles when the time arrives later.

Summer Meals on the Grill in Minutes
Summer Mea....on the Grill in Minutes


FAMILY FEATURES EDITORIAL SYNDICATE
Steak your claim to the best backyard barbecue ever! Go beyond basic hamburgers and hot
dogs or traditional steak and potatoes, and venture into the mouthwatering world of garden-
fresh asparagus and zucchini, tender and juicy filet mignon or well-marbled ribeye, even suc-
culent peaches or pineapple on the grill. With a little sizzle, smoke and spice - and a few
easy grilling tips and recipes - you can become the resident grill gourmet.
First, the signature steak. For the best taste and texture, start off with grain-fed Midwestern beef
that is well-marbled, hand trimmed and aged to perfection. Next, enhance the natural goodness of the
beef with a select seasoning. Create a little culinary magic by sprinkling a savory blend of herbs and
spices on the steak itself. Or serve fabulous dips, sauces, marinades or salad dressings to complement
whatever you grill.
Grill trimmed spears of asparagus or lengthwise strips of zucchini, brushed with a little olive oil and
sprinkled with a seasoning blend, right along with your steak. While the grill is still hot, brush peeled
peach halves or fresh pineapple rings with melted butter and sizzle on both sides until warmed through.
Serve the grilled fruit with a scoop of ice crc 111 I ., ,; .1 ; .: i,... .:.. . ii.nal summer meal.

Propane Safety
M ore than 75 percent of American households have a grill - the majority of.thegl fu-,
eled by propane. That's because propane grills offer homeowners a wide variety
of benefits. They are, for example, equipped with convenient on/off switches, allowing for
instant heat, easy temperature adjustments and quick c:...1-:. n r, itne- .'d because there
are no burning embers, propane grills don't throw sparks or require messy cleanup.
Before the grilling begins, however, here are some important safe grilling tips that will
help ensure that you and your family have a healthy and enjoyable grilling experience this
summer:


* Always follow grill manufacturer's in-
structions on lighting the grill and make
sure the grill top is open.
* Always use or store cylinders outdoors
in an upright (vertical) position. Do not
use, store or transport cylinders near
high temperatures (this includes storing


spare cylinders near the grill).
* When the cylinder is refilled, have the
supplier check for dents, damage, rust
or leaks.
* Before connecting or lighting a propane
gas grill, use a leak-detection solution
to check connections for tightness. Do
not use matches or lighters to check
for leaks.
* After filling or exchanging, take the
cylinder home immediately. Keep the
vehicle ventilated and the cylinder
valve closed and capped.
If you suspect a gas leak, call the fire
department immediately.
* Do not allow children to tamper or
play with the cylinder or grill.
" Do not smoke while handling a propane
cylinder.
* Never pour an accelerant such as lighter
fluid or gasoline on the grill.
* When not in use, grill burner controls
should be turned off and cylinder valve
closed.

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


Dear Classified Guys,
I recently saw an ad for a pet skunk
in my newspaper? At first I thought
it was a joke. Then, I started thinking
about it and figured that a skunk
could make a great novelty pet. I
mean who wouldn't notice
when I took him for a walk .-
down Main Street. The
question I have though, is
do skunks make good pets?
How do I train him not to spray
everyone? My dog was sprayed
once and I don't think he's ever fully
recovered!
Cash: If you think your dog will
have trouble adjusting to the skunk,
just wait until your family comes to
visit.
Carry: The question of whether a
skunk makes a good pet or not really
comes down to an individual's view.
There are some people who believe that
wild animals should not be domesticat-
ed. On the flip side, a domesticated
skunk can be a very gentle and affec-
tionate pet to own.
Cash: Before you rush out to get
one though, here are a few things to
consider. First, check to make sure that
pet skunks are legal in your state. If
they are allowed, your area may require


T






Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


W* 7/24/05
@2005 The Classified Guys�


a special permit.
Carry: Your next challenge will be
to find a reputable breeder. Skunks are
born in the spring, typically in the
month of May. And believe it or not,
many breeders have a waiting list of
customers. Since you already found an
ad, you have a good start on finding a
reputable source.
Cash: As for the skunk's scent or
concern about spraying, breeders have
the scent glands removed at about 4 to
6 weeks of age. Then, much like a
puppy, a skunk will be offered for
adoption when he is about 6 to 8 weeks
old.


Carry: Skunks can be trained not to
bite and to use a litter box in the corner
of your house. However, you should be
aware that skunks are considered a
high-maintenance pet. They are very
playful, but demand a lot of attention.
As a newborn they need to be held as
much as possible to get acquainted with
you and your family. The more you
cuddle and play with the skunk as a
baby, the more docile it will be when he
grows up.
Cash: Of course, if you're looking
for a protector of the house, there's
almost nothing more deterring than a
"Beware of Skunk" sign.


Color Choices
When most people think of a skunk,
they picture a black animal with a white
stripe on it's back. But hold your nose,
because skunks come in a variety of col-
ors and patterns. Besides the traditional
black and white, skunks can be seen in
brown and white, gray and white, cream
and white or the occasional albino. Their
markings also vary from the classic white
strip as well. Many of them have pat-
terns such as spots or swirls. Regardless
of their coloring though, be sure to notice
which direction their tail is pointing!

Got Sprayed?
It's every dog owner's fear, having
their dog sprayed by a skunk. While the
traditional thought is to soak your pet in
tomato juice, that isn't the best remedy to
remove the smell. Instead, mix one quart
of 3% hydrogen peroxide, 1A cup of bak-
ing soda and one teaspoon of dishwash-
ing detergent. Apply this to your dog,
taking precautions to protect their eyes
and ears. After a few minutes, rinse with
,normal tap water. Both you and your dog
will have some relief.

Stinking Party
When we moved into our new
house, a small skunk decided to move
in with us and took up residence under
the back deck. Since I knew he would
eventually pose a problem, I tried to
evict him several times, but with little
success.
On the night of our first house party,
my friend wandered outside after a
few too many drinks. He returned
smelling like the skunk.
As he stumbled by us in the living
room, my wife asked him, "What hap-
pened to you?"
Still holding his beer, he turned to us
and slurred, "That's the last time I try
to pet your cat."
(Thanks to Anthony P.)



Too bad the dog
doesn't smell like his name.
