Digital Bean,


making gaming pay


Janet Schradbr-Seccafico
Democrat Reporter
In downtown Live Oak there is a place where kids can
go, wire themselves into a computer and be entertained
for hours. It's like something out of the future, only the
future is now. It's called a gaming center. Live Oak's own
gaming center is the Digital Bean.
"We started it up and surprisingly, it's doing well," said
Bean owner Rick Marler. Marler has been into the com-
puter scene in Suwannee County for some time as own-
er of Lightning Access. A gaming center made sense to
him because they have a lot of wasted band width.
"We have enough high-speed to supply service to
everyone in Live Oak," Marler said.
Marler was surfing the Internet and saw a gaming cen-


ter website. After 150 hours or so of intense research,
which included calling gaming centers around the coun-
try, Marler decided it was do-able..
He contacted the owner of Gamer's Asylum in
Gainesville, Lee Perez, drove to Gainesville and got the
grand tour.
"He showed me what to do and what not to do," Mar-
ler said.
Setting up the Digital Bean proved to be a lot more ex-
pensive than Marler had thought. Deep in the depths of
the Bean there are 14 computers, the fastest Dell makes
and sells. For each of these computers, Marler had to
purchase a commercial copy of every game along with a
commercial license for every game.
"You can't just go to Wal-Mart and buy a game," Mar-
ler said. "They're licensed for residential use only. You
have to get games that are specially licensed for com-

Fire meeting is



real "fire fight"

Susan K. Lamb


Democrat Managing Editor
The meeting held Tuesday evening,
July 25, at City Hall was to be a workshop
to determine the exact duties of the
Suwannee County Volunteer Fire Fighters
Governing Board. It turned into a gripe
session with everyone pointing fingers at
each other to place blame why the year-
old board has not been able to function as
expected.
Much of the finger-pointing was toward
county employees that members of the
governing board said are putting stum-
bling blocks in front of the County Com-
mission-appointed board of five experi-
enced fire fighters from around the coun-
ty. Some governing,
board members corn-
mented that a barrier
existed between get- ..
ting information I
from the governing
board to the County -
Commission. Others

Manure happens: waste

testing lab helps farmers


According to the "Poop Scoop"
newsletter-published by the University
of Florida to help farmers manage waste
from thousands of dairy cows and mil-
lions of chickens - manure can be a good
thing.
"We try to take a light-hearted rear
view of the problem, but managing all

that waste to protect the environment is
no easy task," says Cliff Starling, coordi-
nator of nutrient management programs
at UF's, Suwannee Valley Livestock
Waste Testing Laboratory in Live Oak.
The lab, which is the first of its kind in
the nation, serves livestock producers
throughout the state. In the environmen-
tally sensitive Suwannee River basin of
North Florida, there are about 25,000
dairy cows and 38 million chickens.
Statewide, there are about 142,000 dairy
cows.
"After all the jokes about it, manure
actually has a lot of good things in it,"
Starling said. "These include valuable
organic matter and nutrients that can be
applied to crops to reduce fertilizer costs
and protect water resources.:"
The price of fertilizer is increasing
rapidly, arid the goal of the lab is to help
change animal waste into a valuable re-
source by analyzing it for different nutri-
ents, he said.
The cow manure and chicken litter-
which contain valuable plant nutrients
such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potas-
sium-can help farmers save money by
reusing and recycling nutrients. Use of
animal waste may also lower production
costs by reducing the need for commer-

The governing board had
asked to meet with the Com-
mission to have outlined ex-
actly what the governing
board is being asked to do by
the Commission and also how
to accomplish those goals.
When the meeting was
over, not much had been de-
cided. Commission Chairman
Billy Maxwell did appoint
Commissioner Jesse
Caruthers to bring back a re-
port to the board within 30
days regarding why fire
trucks are not being repaired
at the county road department
when taken in, why prices as
high as $5,000 are being quot-
ed by the county's public
works mechanics shop for
these repairs when one gov-
erning board member said he
ended up taking back his
truck after the $5,000 quote
and a three-week delay and
got the truck running again
for only $27.50. Caruthers
was told to investigate other

problems that were mentioned
that may have kept volunteer
fire trucks off the road need-
lessly. Caruthers said he was
ready to get the problems
solved and indicated he would
find answers.
As the evening wore on,.
governing board members, in-
cluding Walt Sage, Cleatus
McCook, Paul Gamble, Ron-
nie Cook and.Jim O'Neil all
spoke on the governing board's
issues. These men brought
with them complaints that
when they try to get a purchase
order (PO) to buy the parts
needed to fix equipment and
fire trucks, they face major
problems getting the PO. The
men said they can't get cooper-
ation from county employees,
specifically Wooley and
Howard, and cannot carry out
what they thought their duties
were. Now, they said, they
need the Commission to define
the governing board's role and
then make sure no more obsta-
cles are placed in its way of
operating.
Sage, chairman of the gov-
erning board, apologized ini-
tially because he said he knew
he would make some people
mad when he spoke. "Some-
times we get nothing, some-
times we get a little," he said.
"Some of our recommenda-
tions were changed, some ig-
nored. If we can't get your co-
operation, there's no way this
(governing board) will work,"
Sage told the Commission.
"There are some out there who
don't want it to work. If you
want it to work, give us direc-
tions but also give your people
directions so we're all on the
same page!"
O'Neil said if the governing
board can have the authority to
deal with the volunteer fire
fighters without interference
from county employees, the
system the Commission has
said it wants will work. Other-
wise, it won't, he stated."We
need you to tell us what we can
and cannot do." O'Neil went
on to say the volunteers have
such poor equipment that most
of "the fire trucks they're using
should be on display in a muse-
um." O'Neil said he wants to


put two new fire fighting appa-
ratuses at each volunteer sta-
tion through a lease-purchase
plan. "We need it all at the
same time. When you buy it
along and along, something
will be different every year,"
he said. "If volunteers have the
same as the county, we'll all
know how to operate all the
equipment."
Commissioner Doug Udell
told O'Neil that if the chain of
command is not clear, the gov-
erning board won't have the re-
spect it needs from the volun-
teers to run the service. If the
volunteers have to go through
Howard some of the time and
the governing board some of
the time, it just won't work,
Udell said."We must first es-
tablish the chain of command,"
he said, indicating the govern-
ing board would be first in that
chain.
Commissioner Randy Hatch
said the board has caused some
of the problems. "We've sent
conflicting messages." And, he
added, there is a "divisive
group out there" that wants the
effort to make the volunteer
fire fighters into a fully
trained, well-equipped group
that works under a chain of
command and strict rules to
fail.
Commissioners agreed by
the end of the meeting that the
volunteer stations must be re-
duced to six or seven in order
for the county to provide prop-
er funding. Gpveming board
members agreed on the num-
bers, but some said how to
come up with that reduction
must be worked out. ,
O'Neil said one of the cur-
rent problems are that the
county still doesn't own all the
fire trucks at the volunteer de-
partments, 'most of which are
30 or 40 years old. At one or.
two stations, he said, they have
newer equipment and if they
don't like what the governing
board says, they can do as they
please."Mr. Fowler attends
these (governing board) meet-
ings but I don't know what he
brings back to you, but we're
not getting it to you," O'Neil
said. "If you'll let us, we'll pro-
vide you the best service."
Commissioners discussed
this issue and how to deal with
it to bring the fire service into
one cohesive group working as
trained volunteers under rules
set down by the state where all
the equipment and the stations
will be owned by the county.
Wooley told the board the


"volunteers have had the inde-
pendence so long they want to
keep it." But, he added, "we
have to follow rules, the gov-
erning board has to go by
rules." Wooley added that
county employees are frustrat-
ed with the situation also and
nothing is clear to them either
about what the governing
board should be doing.
McCook said the county
can't have a good' volunteer fire
service with the old equipment
and said all the good volunteers
are quitting or getting too old to
fight fires. "It's kind of a thank-
less job to go out there in the
middle of the night and put out
a house fire or dig someone out
of a wrecked vehicle." But, he
said, "you go out there to help
your fellow man, not to see the
glory."
"We don't need new taxes,
Lord no! But, this new assess-
ment will help," said Gamble.
Cook said he can't get his fire
truck serviced or inspected by
the county. He also said the
new rules ,say a truck that sits
outside can't be replaced but
the one he drives has been out-
side 15 years and helped to put
out many a fire.
Maxwell said volunteers
shouldn't have to take their fire
trucks to Live Oak to get them
serviced or , inspected or
shouldn't have to drive to Live
Oak to pick up new batteries or
other equipment when the
county pays employees and
gives them free gas to deal with
such situations. "I've. hollered
on this already and nothing's
been done!"
Commissioner Ivie Fowler
said he had "lost my cool at the
Public Works over some of
these very problems." At one
time, he said, seven volunteer
fire trucks were grounded but
the mechanics at Public Works
said the\ couldn't fix �the
trucks. "Now we're taking them
back to Ronnie (Cook) to fix.
Maxwell said he believes
"someone's been storying to
us" about the issues in the vol-
unteer fire departments and
that he intends to get to the bot-
tom of it.
Commissioners indicated
they will bring the governing
board together with the Com-
mission as soon as budget hear-
ings and the Aug. 16 public
hearing on the new fire assess-
ment is over.

mercial use."
There's no cheating in this
matter either. Every Friday
night, the Digital Bean's sys-
tem is opened up to the gam-
ing software companies so
they can check and make sure
everything is legal.
The Bean has 14 computer
stations with head phones and
comfortable chairs. There are
two X-Box TVs along with a
wide screen TV hooked into
an X-Box for tournaments.
Yes, there are tournaments.
On a day to day basis, the
Bean provides kids and adults
alike with a chance to play
each other and to go on line
and play people from out of
the state and even out of the
country. Gaming centers hold
tournaments and play each
other.
"The kids were bragging
about how good they are,"
Marler said. "We played
Gainesville and they whipped
us 3-18."
The Bean holds lock
downs where kids can go
and play all night long. Lo-
cal parents have found this
to be a pretty good deal. Ac-
cording to Marler, they drop
the kids, go out on a real
date or maybe go shopping.
Players have special user
names they log on with like
Pop Crazy, Pop Corn, Angel,
Anti-human Guitar Player.
Parents who wish to monitor
their children, see what
they're playing or even if
they are really where they're
supposed to be, can log onto
the Bean's website


"www.thedigitalbean.com",
find their kid's user name and
check what they're playing.
There is a voice server so par-
ents can even listen in to their
children
The Bean has games like
Counterstrike, Battlefield II,
Call of Duty, Guild Wars and
the Warcraft series. The com-
puters even have copies of Mi-
crosoft Office so if there is any
real work or homework the
kids need to do, they cani get it
done' as well.
Everything is completely
automated. Each player has his
own account. There are mem-
berships available that make it
cheaper. Players or parents can
prepay, minutes are deducted
as used automatically. And
there is always an adult pre-
sent in case of problems,
though Marler said there
haven't been any so far.
The cost for a member is $3
an hour. Memberships for one
year cost $40. Anyone can
walk in and game. It only costs
$5 an hour.
One kid, a self proclaimed
skater (skateboard rider) with
the user name of Rocker, said
he always sits at station num-
ber-four. His favorite game is
Battlefield II. "My parents
think it's great," Rocker said as
he donned his headphones and
plugged himself into the com-
puter. Rocker has been playing
on computers since he was
four-years old.-"These are the
fastest computers you can
buy," he said of the Dells in
the Digital Bean.
Another user, Dustbunny,
said, "We have a fun time. We
game on the internet, start up a


local game and get everyone
in here playing." Dustbunny
got started with computers
when he was six or seven. "My
parents are fine with this,"
Dustbunny said. "They like
that I'm where it's supervised
and I can be safe."
The Bean is available for
birthday parties. The kids play
and the parents relax.
The Digital Bean is not just
for kids. Marler said there are
three basic groups that game
at the Bean and about 500
customers. "We have one
group that is 13-16 years old,
then there is the 18-21 group-
and we have another group of
the 35-40 year olds," Marler
said.
Marler is always thinking
and always coming up with
new ways to use computers.
His newest idea is a "data cen-
ter." He plans to kick this off
Sept. 10. The data center will
have the capability of backing
up every server in Live Oak
remotely. The center will pro-
vide secure, 24-hour access,
power backups with batteries
and generators and even lease
servers. This will give compa-
nies a way of backing up the
information on their servers,
save them costly data loss and
even save space.
The Digital Bean is open
from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. and
has occasional 24-hour lock-
downs. Check upcoming is-
sues of the Suwannee Democ-
rat for a complete schedule of
Bean activities.

cial fertilizer, he said.
In North Florida, careful
application of manure to
crops also helps reduce the
movement of nutrients into
ground and surface waters in
the 13 counties that com-
prise the Suwannee River
Water Management District.
Because of the region's
porous soils and active hy-
drology, every effort must be
taken to protect water re-
sources from pollution by
animal wastes as well as hu-
man wastes and fertilizers,
Starling said.
"In order to apply manure
to crops at the proper rate,
farmers need to know what
levels of nutrients are pre-
sent in the waste, and our lab.
can provide them with that
information," he ,said. "The
actual nutrient concentration
in manures may vary from
one livestock operation to
another, depending on the
animal feed, season of the
year and design of the waste
collection system."

ther and son owners of C&C
Farms in McAlpin, said they
rely on the lab to test chick-
en litter for various nutri-
ents.
':By having the lab test our
poultry waste for nutrients,
we know what rates and
amounts to apply to crops
such as corn, hay, oats and
sorghum," John Carter said.
"As a result, we have been
able to reduce our fertilizer
costs by about 90 percent."
Starling said manure
should be sampled at the lab
-before each field application
is made,,or at least twice a
year, preferably. in winter
and laiet summer to measure
seasonal nutrient .variations
in the waste. The free lab
service is provided by UF's
Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences.
"Our lab repol t,. which
ta ke; a, bqw t\yo o I three,
weeks to' prepare, pro\ ides
detailed information that can


be used in the overall nutri-
ent management program of
any farm operation," Star-
ling said. "In addition to pro-
viding the analytical results
and nutrient availability esti-
mates, the report includes
fertilizer recommendations
for the selected crop as well
as supplemental nutrients
that are needed and the eco-
nomic value of the waste be-
ing utilized."
To use the lab's services,
farmers can contact their lo-
cal county extension agent to
discuss their manure man-
agement system and arrange
for waste samples to be ana-
lyzed. At the request of local
county extension. agents,
Starling also educates indi-
vidual farmers about their
waste management pro-
grams.
In addition to coordinating
the lab's nutrient manage-
ment programs, Starling
conducts education pro-
grams, workshops and tours
for farmers and other resi-
dents who want to utilize or-
ganic wastes on crops, pas-
tures and pine trees.
He said many conditions
affect the use of wastes on
crops. Nitrogen, for exam-
ple, is the most abundant nu-
trient in waste, and the nutri-
ent must be broken down by
microorganisms in the soil
before it can be used by
plants. This process - called
mineralization - is affected
by the type of soil as well as
soil moisture, soil tempera-
ture and microbial popula-
tions. As the temperature in-
creases during the summer,
microbial activity increases.
All of these environmental
factors are considered by the
livestock waste testing lab,
which is located at UF's
North Florida Research and
Education Center. The center
also works closely with the
Suwannee River Partnership,
which includes local, state
and federal go' eriimentri
agencies [ h r'[",:: f j'ipiig
farmers de� elop strategieS-
for" mioiit6ring and maInag-


ing waste and fertilizer in the
basin.
Nitrogen, phosphorus and
other nutrients in waste can
degrade water quality in
rivers and springs, causing
algae blooms that consume
oxygen needed by fish and
other aquatic animals. High
nitrogen levels can also af-
fect human health.
George Hochmuth, direc-
tor of the UF research and
education center in Live
Oak, said the partnership is
being coordinated by the
Florida Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Ser-
vices and the Suwannee Riv-
er Water Management Dis-
trict in cooperation with UF,
the U.S. Department of Agri-
culture Natural Resources
Conservation Service, the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection, the
Florida Farm Bureau and
other agencies, agricultural
producers and related associ-
ations.

Let's Talk about letters

Tips on sharing your opinions in the paper
Newspaper readers love letters to the editor. For that matter
newspaper editors love letters to the editor.
Letters let us know what you think. Letters provide great
reading. Letters offer valuable feedback.
Lately, readers of the Suwannee Democrat have been send-
ing us plenty of letters, and we encourage you to keep them
coming. All letters will be read. Not all letters will be pub-
lished. Let us offer a few letter-writing suggestions:
* Keep it short. We all prefer reading shorter items that get
to the point. An ideal range is between 150 and 200 words.
* Don't rant. Nothing turns readers away like a misguided
rant. Aim for a persuasive, rational argument supported by
facts and figures.
* Be topical. Know the issues that are in the news. Letters
focused on issues, particularly local issues, are the best read.
* Expect to be edited. Although the Suwannee Democrat
makes every effort not to, all newspapers should reserve the
right to edit. The editor should not alter the writer's point of
view. Well-written letters require less editing.
* Be legible. If you don't have a computer or a typewriter,
please write clearly. If need be, print. The Suwannee Democ-
rat also requires letters to include the writer's name, address,
telephone number and written signature. The telephone num-
ber will not be printed but is used for verification.
This newspaper will not run unsigned letters.

POINT OF VIEW


Florida's Growth Management Follies


Robert F. Sanchez


By Robert E Sanchez
Florida's growth manage-
ment debate heated up this
year, but it still boils down to
two basic issues: how to reg-
ulate growth and how to pay
for it.
I'll skip the regulatory is-
sue except to note that 20
years after advocates of cen-
tralized planning passed the
Growth Management Act of
1985, the law's failure has be-
come, ahem, growingly evi-
dent.
Even the law's advocates
now concede that it hasn't
curtailed growth or even


steered it to the "urban in-fill" areas favored by the planning
elites. Instead, the government's ham-handed interference
has made homes more costly - so much so that planners are
now fretting about "the lack of affordable housing."
While the complex debate over how to "manage" growth
rages on, the debate over how to pay boils down to a simple
tug-of-war between state and local officials. Each side wants
the other to pay more. In sorting through this, it's helpful to
look toward an improbable spot: Jefferson County, which
has at least two unique distinctions.
One distinction is geographic: It's the only county that
stretches all the way from Georgia to the Gulf. Moreover, its
marshy shore isn't lined with pricey homes and ritzy resorts.
Instead, it's a federal wildlife refuge. It's beautiful, and a rar-
ity in coastal Florida, but it adds, relatively little to Jefferson
County's economy and nothing to its tax base.
Yet Jefferson's more remarkable distinction isn't geo-
graphic; it's demographic: It is the only Florida county
whose population is lower now than 125 years ago, when the
1880 census counted 16,065 residents there. Jefferson's
2005 tally was 13,998.
That 1880 census found only 257 residents in Dade Coun-
ty, whose boundaries then encompassed an area that now in-
cludes four counties - Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach,
and Martin - with a combined 2005 population of 5,644,583.
As Southeast Florida grew, it also prospered while Jeffer-
son County languished. At present, for instance, Florida
Trend magazine reports that Palm Beach County's per capi-
ta income of $48,081 is nearly twice Jefferson's $24,317.
Jefferson's poverty may account for the comparatively
poor performance of its schools, which lag state and nation-
al norms. Result: Families are reluctant to move there, and
the boom that has buoyed real estate values and the tax base
in many other counties has been tame in Jefferson, where lo-
cal officials often face a tough challenge to fund basic ser-
vices.


Meanwhile, the same counties that courted or counte-
nanced rapid growth - and prospered as a result - are now
complaining that "the state" should pay more for the roads
and schools they need to cope with traffic congestion and
rising school enrollment.
When they say "the state," of course, they mean revenue
derived from taxing every Florida resident and visitor. But
why burden residents of poor, slow-growth counties to fund
roads and schools for affluent, fast-growth counties? After
all, the fast-growth counties have the potential resources
necessary to pay for their own infrastructure needs - some-
thing they managed to do in the past, when their growth was
even faster.
The current real-estate boom has enriched the property-
tax base. Many counties are also receiving record numbers
of visitors and, as a result, more revenue from local-option
taxes on sales and gasoline. And some counties are also ex-
torting outrageous impact fees from developers, enriching
their coffers while inflating the price of housing.
By borrowing against these revenue sources, Florida's
fast-growing counties could build roads and schools now
and pay for them later, when the dollar will be cheaper and
their taxpayers presumably more numerous.
Unfortunately, instead of investing their revenue wind-
falls in tangible projects such as roads and schools, local of-
ficials in many of Florida's fastest growing areas too often
yield to public employee unions' strident demands for high-
er wages, costly benefits, excessive pensions and other
perquisites. This type of political pandering is consuming
revenue that could be used to build local roads and schools.
Granted, there are some highways that provide a
statewide or regional benefit and thus require state revenue
or a state-local partnership. Likewise, there are some edu-
cational facilities - public universities and community col-
leges, for instance - that are also principally a state respon-
sibility.
However, in pondering how to pay for local growth,
Florida should rule out imposing higher statewide taxes that
would force residents of poor, slow-growing counties to pay
more to save rich, fast-growing counties from the conse-
quences of the bad choices they have made.

.NEW TOPICAL TREATMENT
FOR BASAL CELL CARCINOMA
More than one million people
develop non-melaoma skin
cancer each year, and about 75%
of these cases are thought to be
basal cell carcinomas. Recently,
the FDA approved Imiquimod
cream as a treatment for this
common form of skin cancer.
While the standard of care fro
this type of skin cancer is surgical
excision, Imiquimod cream may
be an option for select basal cell
cancers. It is open used for small
cancers on the body, neck, and
arms. The cream is applied once
a day for several weeks.
According to one study, 66% of
patients who used the drug five
days a week for six weeks had no
evidence of cancer twelve weeks

Live Oak community
helps reduce the
risk of stroke
Residents living in and
around the Live Oak communi-
ty can be screened to reduce
their risk of having a stroke.
Life Line Screening will be at
the Live Oak Garden Club on
Aug. 5. The site is located at
1100 SW Eleventh Street, Live
Oak. Appointments will begin
at 9 a.m.
A stroke, also known as a
"brain attack", is ranked as the
third leading killer in the world,
and the second among women.
Through preventive screenings,
the risk of having a stroke can

Screenings are fast, painless
and low cost. They involve the
use of ultrasound technology,
and scan for potential health
problems related to: blocked ar-
teries which can lead to a stroke,
aortic aneurysms which can
lead to a ruptured aorta, and
hardening of the arteries in the
legs, which are a strong predic-
tor of heart disease. Also offered
for men and women, is a bone
density screening to assess their
risk for osteoporosis..

USDA has extended the dead-
line to nominate eligible candi-
dates to serve on USDA Farm
Service Agency (FSA) county
committees to Aug. 15, an-
nounced Kevin Kelley, Florida
Executive Director for USDA's
Farm Service Agency (FSA).
The nomination deadline was
previously scheduled for Aug. 1,
2005.
"Our goal is to have as many
eligible candidates nominated to
serve on FSA county committees
as possible, especially minorities
and women," said Kelley. 'This
two-week extension will give
USDA personnel, community-
based groups, farmer organiza-
tions and others more time to
continue their outreach efforts so
FSA county committees can tru-
ly reflect America's agricultural
landscape."
Committees apply their judg-
ment and knowledge to make
decisions on county commodity
price-support loan eligibility, es-
tablishment of allotments and
yields, conservation programs,
disaster programs, employment
and other farm program-related
issues.
Individuals may nominate
themselves or others as a candi-
date. In addition, eligible candi-


dates can be nominated by com-
munity-based and other organi-
zations in the county where the
election is being held before the
close of the nomination period,
especially groups representing
socially disadvantaged farmers
or ranchers. Nominations and
elections are open to all eligible
candidates and voters without
regard to race, color, religion,
nation origin, age, sex, marital
status or disability. The nomina-
tion form (FSA-669A) is avail-
able at USDA Service Centers
and on-line at:
http://www.fsa.usda.gov/pas/pu
blications/elections.
Producers should keep in
mind several important dates re-
garding the upcoming county
committee elections. Producers
can request, fill out and submit
nomination forms up to Aug. 15.
Ballots will be mailed to eligible
voters by Nov. 4. The deadline
to return ballots is Dec. 5. Elect-
ed committee members and al-
ternates take office on Jan. 1,
2006.
For more information about
FSA county committees, visit a
local USDA Service Center or

who own at least 10 acres but no
more than 5,000 acres of land in
Florida and who have a practice
plan will be eligible to receive
funding assistance under FLRP.
A maximum of $25,000 will be

GAME FACE ON! These participants in the recent Bulldog Football Camp have their game faces on as they learn fundamentals of Bulldog football.

The first ever Bulldog football camp
for kids was a huge success. Thirty-
eight kids of all ages swarmed the
practice football field at Suwannee
High to learn all about Bulldog foot-


ball.
"We taught them the offensive and
defensive positions form a fundamen-
tal level," Suwannee High head foot-
ball coach Bobby Bennett said.
The camp was aimed at kids from
eight to eighth grade. It was a joint ef-
fort between the Bulldog coaching
staff and the Bulldog football players


to get kids interested in football. At the
camp's completion, the kids received
brochures from the Suwannee Recre-
ation Department so they could sign up
to play Rec football this fall.
"The kids seemed to really like it,"
Coach bill Brewer said. Brewer was
instrumental in organizing the camp.
"We had a great turnout."


The camp not only taught the kids
fundamentals, but entertained them as,
well. IHighlight films of last year's sea-
son were shown as well as the film of
1988 state championship game the
Bulldogs won. John Palmer, quarter-
back from that 1988 team, gave a mo-

IT'S GOOD FOR YOUR GAME


The Love wall
By T.J. TOMASI
Universal Press Syndicate
If you're hitting it short and not striking
the ball solidly, it may be because you
don't create a wall to hit over. Most
golfers simply slide their hips laterally
toward the target and don't rotate them near-
ly enough, so there is no resistance to hit
against. When you slide the hips without
rotating them, your release will be forced and
jerky, a mere flick of your wrists at the ball.
One reason a tour swing looks so smooth is
that the release is caused by hitting the front
wall and not by a conscious manipulation of
any part of the body. The release is "passive,"
a key that will allow you to create power and
accuracy without trying to.
In the first photo below, PGA Tour player
Davis Love demonstrates the formation of
the front wall perfectly. Using an aggressive
arm swing, Love establishes his front wall
(left side) early and then hits across it like all
good players do.
Look at Love's left hip. Were you to estab-
lish your left side as he does, your release of
the club head to the ball would be passive,
the result of hitting the wall. It's just physics:
Slam on the brakes correctly and everything
that isn't tied down (your arms, right hip,
right knee and, most important, your club
head) shoots forward automatically with a
powerful slinging action.
Compare Love's swing to the one I'm
demonstrating in the second photo. Here I'm
simulating a meltdown of the left wall. I
don't want to swing this way unless I like
short drives.
In a nutshell: You don't MAKE a good
release happen, you LET it happen."
So firm up that front leg and never allow it
to buckle or bow out toward the ball. Your
left knee begins to straighten as your hip
turns behind you, and while your leg doesn't
have to go ram-rod stiff, it must be firm
enough to provide resistance.
The good player hits across the lower front
leg just as the home-run hitter does. So get to
your left side (right for left-handers) to start
your downswing, and then rotate that front
hip behind you.


Firm up your front leg, like Davis Love
(above), and never allow it to buckle or
bow out toward the ball, like me (below).

PHIL SKINNER / Cox News Service
Arnold Palmer has played in only five Champions Tour tournaments this year and is
averaging 81 strokes per round.





Arnie's still the





main attraction


Palmer probably
won't make cut, but
is still looking forward
to U.S. Senior Open
By BUCKY ALBERS
Cox News Service
Dayton, Ohio
A star-studded field will tee it
up this week in the 2005 U.S.
Senior Open, but no player
among the 156 starters will attract
half as much attention as a man
who has no chance to win.
Arnold Palmer, also known as
The King, already has treated golf
galleries to 50 years of fond memo-
ries, and he will give a new genera-
tion of fans an opportunity to
enjoy his regal presence this week
at NCR Country Club in Kettering,
Ohio.
If doesn't matter that the 75-year-
old Palmer hasn't won a tourna-
ment in 16 years. It doesn't matter
that he hasn't had a top 25 finish in
eight years and hasn't made the cut
in the Senior Open in six years.
Arnie is Arnie, and the fans are, no
doubt, delighted that he chose to
play in the Senior Open for a
record 25th year.
"It was questionable," Palmer
said at a press conference recently
"Since I haven't played much (com-
petitive) golf this year, I decided to
give it a go." Palmer has played in
only five Champions Tour tourna-
ments this year and is averaging 81
strokes per round.
I He doesn't have fond memories
of his only other tournament at
NCR Country Club.
"My first appearance at NCR
wasn't very good," he said, alluding
to the fact that he was forced to
withdraw from the 1969 PGA
Championship after encountering
a hip problem during the first
round. While trying to reach the
green in two with a 1-iron at the
548-yard par 5 sixth hole, Palmer
pulled something out of place.


U.S. SENIOR OPEN

Thursday-Sunday.

Club, South Course (7,055

a one-stroke victory over
Hale Irwin at Bellerive in
St. Louis.,Jacobsen was
playing only his third
Champions Tour event.
* On the Web:
www.ussenioropen.com


Jeff Wise, who caddied for
Palmer as a 16-year-old, still
remembers hearing something pop.
He said he could tell that Palmer
was in great pain.
Palmer struggled to an 11-over-
par 82, which was his highest score
as a professional, flew home the
next day and took a long respite
from golf.
"It was my hip, but it was related
to a back problem I had," Palmer
said. Palmer's longtime publicity
man, Doc Giffin, said Arnie first
injured his back in the 1966 New
Orleans Open.
Although he was able to play
only one round in the 1969 tourna-
ment, Palmer had played a signifi-
cant role in the fact that there even
was a PGA Championship that
year. In 1968 the touring profession-
als, who had been a part of the
Professional Golfers Association,


threatened to separate from the
PGA and form an independent tour
to be called American Professional
Golfers.
Late in 1968 the Tournament
Players Division split from the PGA
of America and hired Joseph C.
Dey as its first commissioner. That
organization became the modern-
day PGA Tour.
For a time the sponsors weren't
certain the 1969 tournament would
be played, but Palmer and Jack
Nicklaus represented the players in
brokering an agreement with PGA
President Leo Fraser and the tour-
nament was on the 1969 schedule.
Though Palmer has reduced his
formal tournament schedule to
about seven or eight a year, he is
quite busy doing charity work and
building golf courses.
."I have a lot of things to do," he
said. "I still enjoy the golf course
design business. We're getting
more stuff to do, which is nice."
Palmer spends the winters at his
Bay Hill Club in Orlando, Fla., and
the summers at his home in
Latrobe, Pa. He plays golf almost
daily at the Latrobe Country Club,
where he grew up. He goes to the
office in the mornings, answers
mail and makes business calls.
After lunch, he looks for a golf
game with his buddies.
A pilot who once held a world
aviation record, Palmer enjoys fly-
ing the 11-passenger Citation X jet
that will bring him to Dayton this
week. "I have about 18,000 hours,"
he said. "That's a lot of time in an
airplane."
* Palmer's wife, Winnie, died in
1999. He was remarried in January
to Kit Gawthorp. He said he is
enjoying having a companion
again.
"It's wonderful," he said. "If my
golf game was a little more sub-
stantial it would make life even bet-
ter."
With that, Palmer excused him-
self. "I'm going to go work on my
game and see if I can make it
respectable," he said.

off with a triple and then
scored off Shayla Kick-
lighter's hit to second. Brianna
Santerfeit and Shelby Wadford
hit triples in the fourth. Shelby

Wainwright's home run.
The game was completed in
four innings when Brooke

scored Dallas Smith. Daycia
Brady got a base hit and
scored off Caitlyn Hunt's dou-
ble. Shayla Kicklighter got an

with a final score of 12-1.
Shayla Kicklighter was
awarded the game ball for
tagging out the runner on a
great throw from first to third
from Haejin Choe.
The championship game
was a nail-biter with no score


going into the third inning.
Dallas Smith hit a triple and
scored off Ruby Segura's
base hit. Suwannee held their
opponent scoreless until the
fifth inning, but Suwannee's
bats were hot in the 4th in-
ning as Haejin Choe, Brianna
Santerfeit, Shelby Wadford,
Morgan Loadholtz and Shyla
Hollan all scored and contin-
ued in into the fifth inning as
Shyla Hollan scored the final
run in the championship
game off a great hit by Cha-
sity Thomas. C h a s i t y
was awarded the game ball
for hitting in the winning run.
The final score was 14-4
making Suwannee the Dis-
trict Champs and advancing
them to the Babe Ruth State

month. Following the tour-
nament, Coach Suzanne Hunt
invited the Stars to a pizza
and pool party despite re-
ceiving the traditional
coach's ice water dousing
following their big win! The
team, coaches and parents
appreciate the. support of our
many sponsors.

Surrendering

Yourself
When a man and woman are joined
together in matrimony and become
one, they are in a sense
surrendering their lives to each
other. They are making a
commitment to love and devoting
their lives for the betterment of each other.
A loving marriage is more "we" and less ]
"I," and each partner should act and behave
for the good of both. A loving relationship
involves many aspects of acceptance,
understanding, and most of all, supporting each
other to make the bonds of love stronger. Just as
a husband and wife should yield to each other,
we should also surrender our lives to our
Heavenly Father. We are called to be witnesses
and ambassadors for our Lord, and the way in
which we behave and live our lives should be a
good example for the glory of God. We should all
try to exhibit "God-like qualities" that reflect
God's love for us. God wants us to have a
successful life, and when we are submissive and
include Him in our activities, He will bless us
eternally with His everlasting love.

Underestimating



God

God has given us the ability to analyze almost any
situation that we are faced with and to determine what is
within our realm of capability. However, we sometimes
may incorrectly transfer our human way of thinking and
apply it to God. At times we may believe that some
problems are too big or that some situations are too
insignificant to concern our Heavenly Father. The Bible tells
us that with God, nothing will be impossible (Luke 1:37), and
that we should pray about everything (Philippians 4:6). I am
always amazed at how God answers prayer. It seems that
when we ask our Lord for help with all of the different
problems we encounter, they often get resolved in ways that
we have not considered. We have to remember that God's
ways are not always our ways, and that His ways are always
perfect. We don't always have to understand what happens to
us, we only have to have faith and trust in God 'that He loves
us and wants what is best for us. God is true to His word and
all things are possible according to His will.

By Charles Stuart Platkin
Spices are a wonderful way
to add flair and improve taste
when taking on new eating
habits and cooking healthier.
Not only that, but they have a
long history of medicinal
use. "There have been many
recent studies validating the
historic habit of using spices
for health benefits," says
Donna Tainter, a food tech-
nologist and author of
"Spices and Seasonings, A
Food Technology Hand-
book," (Wiley-Interscience,
2001).
Although the amounts we
consume in any given meal
are tiny, spices can add up to
big health gains. Their key
health benefits lie in their
pigments, which may help
stabilize damage to our cells.
"However, their potency
rapidly declines when
ground. Plus, we still don't
know what would be consid-
ered an effective dose,"
warns Mary Ellen Camire,
Ph.D., professor of food sci-
ence at the University of
Maine.
Nonetheless, one of the
clearest benefits spices pro-
vide is flavor, which allows
you to use less butter, oil and
other fattening extras.
Which spices are healthi-
est, tastiest and simplest to
add to foods? Here are a few
that are particularly notewor-
thy.
CINNAMON
Background: Cinnamon
comes from the dried brown
bark of the cinnamon tree.
There are more than 100 va-
rieties of this fragrant, some-
what sweet spice.
Purported health perks:
- Anti-clotting Action: De-
creases unwanted clumping
of blood platelets.
- Anti-microbial Activity:
Stops the growth of bacteria
as well as fungi, including
the yeast Candida.
- Blood Sugar Control: In
December 2003, a study in
the journal "Diabetes Care"
suggested that 1-6 grams of
cinnamon a day significantly
reduce blood-sugar levels in
patients with type-2 diabetes.
In addition, the study showed
cinnamon reduced triglyc-
eride, LDL cholesterol and
total cholesterol. A number
of studies suggest that as lit-
tle as half a teaspoon a day
can improve the insulin re-
sponse of individuals with
type-2 diabetes. And a recent
study suggests cinnamon
may stabilize blood sugar
even when eating foods high
in sugar.
- Antioxidant Activity: Of
all the spices, cinnamon is
among those with the most
anti-aging, disease-fighting
antioxidants, according to a
Norwegian study in the
"Journal of Nutrition."
- Brain-Boosting Function:
May improve cognitive pro-
cessing.
Nutrients: Manganese, di-
etary fiber and iron - all
typically lacking in our diets.
Two teaspoons have about 12
calories.
Uses: Sprinkle on cappuc-
cino, coffee or toast, or, for
an interesting twist, on chick-
en or mix into ground meat.
CAPSICUM
Background: The capsicum
family includes red and green
chilies that add "heat" to all
kinds of foods. Paprika is a
ground form of capsicum.
Purported health perks:
- Antioxidant Activity:
Capsicum has beta carotene,
which is beneficial to the mu-
cous membranes, eyes and
skin and wards off infection.
It also has antioxidant prop-
erties that neutralize the free


radicals that damage tissue
and cells, and it promotes
cardiovascular health by cut-
ting blood pressure.
- Anti-inflammatory Ac-
tion: Topical creams with
capsaicin (the "heat-produc-
ing" property of capsicum)
may reduce joint pain. Cap-
saicin also helps treat eczema


topically by drawing blood to
the skin, and it is in many
over-the-counter heat patch-
es.
Nutrients: Great source of
vitamin A and beta carotene.
Two teaspoons of dried red
chili peppers have 25 calo-
ries; dried cayenne pepper
contains 11 calories in 2 tea-
spoons.
Uses: Common in Mexi-
can, South American and
Asian cuisines to flavor
meats, poultry and vegeta-
bles.
TURMERIC
Background: This yellow
spice has been called the
poor person's saffron and is
the main ingredient in curry
powder. It has a warm, slight-
ly bitter, spicy taste.
Purported health perks: It
contains high concentrations
of the potent antioxidant and
anti-inflammatory curcumin,
which has been said to inhib-
it tumor growth and help
treat rheumatoid arthritis and
cystic fibrosis. In addition,
curcumin has been associated
with reduced risk of child-
hood leukemia and improved
liver function.
- Antioxidant Activity:
High levels of curcumin, the
yellow pigment in turmeric,
inhibit cancer cell growth. It
has been shown to slow the
growth of prostate cancer and
prevent the activation of
genes that cause cancer.
"Curcumin shuts off the mas-
ter switch which controls tu-
morigenesis (tumor growth);
it specifically works against
skin and breast cancer metas-
tasis," says Bharat B. Aggar-
wal, Ph.D., a professor of
cancer medicine at The Uni-
versity of Texas M. D. An-
derson Cancer Center.
- Anti-inflammatory Activ-
ity: The antioxidants in
turmeric fight the free radi-
cals responsible. for joint in-
flammation and damage.
- Alzheimer's Disease: Re-
cent research at UCLA indi-
cates that eating food with
low doses of curcumin
slashed the accumulation of
Alzheimer's-like plaque in
the brains of mice by 50 per-
cent.
Nutrients: Turmeric con-
tains calcium, magnesium,
dietary fiber, vitamin B6,
iron, potassium and man-
ganese. Two teaspoons have
16 calories.
Uses: Enhances the flavor
of chicken, rice, meat and
lentils.
GINGER
Background: Popular
Asian spice, one of the first
traded in Western Europe.
Purported Health Perks:
- Gastrointestinal Relief:
Certain properties in ginger
seem to ease motion sick-
ness. It has been shown to in-
hibit vomiting. Its nausea-
fighting properties can be
helpful for people suffering
the side effects of chemother-
apy.
- Anti-inflammatory Activ-
ity: Inflammation is believed
to be a contributing factor in
cardiovascular disease, can-
cer, Alzheimer's and arthri-
tis. Like aspirin, gingerols -
compounds found in ginger
- are said to thin the blood
and help reduce pain.
- Antioxidant Activity:
Ginger is high in disease-
fighting antioxidants.
Nutrients: Potassium. One
ounce of ginger root has 20
calories.
Uses: Minced fresh ginger
is great with all kinds of
meat, poultry, vegetables,
sushi and, of course, many
desserts. It's also used in tea.

The Ocean Conservancy

presents the 20th Annual

International Coastal Cleanup


Local Events in 55 U.S. States
and Territories are part of a
Global Effort for Cleaner
Oceans
What: Hundreds of cleanup
events on beaches and inland
waterways as part of the 20 th
Annual International Coastal
Cleanup
When: September 17, 2005
(with additional cleanup
throughout September and Oc-
tober)
Where: Across the United
States and around the world - in-
cluding locations near you. Con-
tact The Ocean Conservancy or
visit www.CoastalCleanup.org
for more information.
Background:
Calendar editors, enmiron-
nmenrii[ writers and conmmunin i
reporters should be advised - as
summer draws to a close, the ar-
rival of the 20th Anniversary In-
ternational Coastal Cleanup
draws near. From modest begin-
nings, the International Coastal
Cleanup has grown into a major
worldwide event. Last year,
over 300,000 international vol-
unteers lent a hand to clean up
litter and marine debris from the
shores, lakes and rivers of nearly
90 nations, from Argentina to
Vietnam. And in many of those
countries, the effort is growing.
The Cleanup is an expression


of individuals' commitment to
clean and safe beaches and wa-
terways - it's about doing some-
thing responsible for the envi-
ronment and finding solutions
for the debris problem, which
can kill thousands of wildlife
and fish each year, and damage
sensitive underwater habitats.
Participating in the Cleanup is a
way to get involved locally with
an international effort, and join
thousands of individuals who
are working together to clean up
their shores-and have fun in the
process.
"It's a really good feeling, not
only doing something that con-
tributes to better health for the
ocean and the environment, but
also knowing that you're doing
iliis alongsidee both , our own
neighbors and people around the
world. It's really powerful," said
Seba Sheavly, Director of the In-
ternational Coastal Cleanup and
The Ocean Conservancy's Of-
fice of Pollution Prevention and
Monitoring in Virginia Beach.
Even the U.S. Commission on
Ocean Policy's 2004 report rec-
ognized the connection, noting,
"While marine debris is a global
problem requiring international
cooperation, many of its nega-
tive impacts are experienced at
the local level and require local
involvement."


But the Cleanup isn't just
about picking up trash and de-
bris. Cleanup volunteers also
collect information about the
items they find, and this data is
given to The Ocean Conservan-
cy. The Ocean Conservancy
then compiles and studies the
data in order to learn more about
the global debris problem, edu-
cate the public, and find solu-
tions. These solutions include
Congressional legislation like
the Marine Debris Research and
Reduction Act of 2005; interna-
tional agreements like the MAR-
POL Conventioi, which deals
with pollution from ships in in-
ternational waters; and initiatives
*from the private sector for waste
management.
Changing human behavior is
the best prevention, since human
fingerprints are on every piece of
trash we find in the ocean.
"Making sure people act respon-
sibly is the crucial component,
and not just during cleanup but
year-round, too," said Sheavly.
"Changing our behavior is the
key to solving pollution prob-
lems that plague the world's
oceans and waterways."
Interested individuals can visit
the official International Coastal
Cleanup Web site (www.coastal-
cleanup.org) for more informa-
tion.

license, refunds


Will Kendrick (D-Carrabelle)
and Sen. JeffAtwater (R-Palm
Beach County) created the li-
cense that covers $83.50
worth of license and permit
fees.
"We hope this new license,
in some small way, sends a

risk their lives to protect
America and preserve our
freedom," Kendrick said.
The Military Gold Sports-
man's License is available at

Dove club permits on sale


Each year, the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) offers ex-
ceptional dove hunting oppor-
tunities throughout the state.
The FWC manages nine spe-
cial-opportunity dove fields
through its Dove Club, the
agency's Special-Opportunity
Dove Hunt Program.
Beginning at 10 a.m. (EDT)
July 1, sportsmen can apply to
purchase Dove Club Permits
at any county tax collector's
office, authorized license
agent, online at
MyFWC.com/dove or by call-
ing 1-888-HUNT-FLORIDA
(486-8356), toll-free from
anywhere in the United States
or Canada.
Dove Club Permits, which
are available on a first-come,
first-served basis, allow one
adult and one youth (under age
16) to participate in all sched-
uled hunts for a designated
dove field (up to 8 days).
These half-day hunts cost
$150 and enable the permit
holder and the youth to both
take a daily bag limit of birds.
Dove hunting opportunities
are in high demand, and these
special hunts offer the perfect
.setting for friends and family
to hunt together in a friendly,


social atmosphere. Hunters
who purchase these annual
permits will save themselves
more than half off the cost of
daily permits for the season.
There are two new special-
opportunity dove fields that
,will be open this coming sea-
son. A 31- acre dove field has
been added to the Bayard Pub-
lic Small-Game Hunting Area
(PSGHA) in Clay County, and
50 acres has been created as a
dove field at the Fussel Road
PSGHA in Polk County.
Seven additional special-op-
portunity dove fields are prob-
ably already very familiar to
some hunters, as they were
open last year. They are:
Schneider Farms (Escambia
County), Parker Road
(Alachua County), Caravelle
Ranch (Putnam County), Dex-
ter/Mary Farms Unit (Volusia
County), Hilochee (Polk
County), Allapattah Road
(Martin County) and Frog
Pond (Miami-Dade County).
Dove Day Permits also are
available at a cost of $35.
These daily permits enable
one adult and one youth (un-
der age 16) to hunt together,
but only allows one bag limit
of birds to be harvested be-
tween the two.


Additionally, there is an op-
tion to buy a $10 Youth Permit
at the same time a Dove Day
Permit is purchased. The
Youth Permit enables one
youth, while hunting under the
supervision of the adult Dove
Day Permit holder, to harvest
an additional daild bag limit of
birds. The Dove ,Day and
Youth permits go on sale at 10
a.m. (EDT) on Sept. 18, and
they are transferable..
Interested hunters are en-
couraged to purchase permits
early as demand for these
hunts often exceeds their
availability. For more infor-
.mation on these great dove
hunting opportunities, visit
MyFWC.com/dove.

Young farmers and ranchers take leadership to the next level


Young farmers and ranch-
ers from across the state
gathered at Walt Disney
World to share ideas on tak-
ing leadership in the agricul-
tural industry to the next lev-
el at the 2005 Florida F'arm
Bureau Federation State
Young Farmer and Rancher
Conference.
The event opened with an
address by Mason Smoak,
president of the Young Farm-
ers and Ranchers leadership
group. Smoak stated that in


its beginning stages Farm
13ureau leaders recognized
the need to provide opportu-
nities for educational and
leadership development for
younger members. The
YF"&R program gives Farm
Bureau a continuous source
of strong leadership for the
agricultural industry, an in-
dustry which is the backbone
of the nation.
"As agriculturists," Smoak
said, "we understand above
all the value of the American


farmer and the role of agri-
culture as it relates to our na-
tion's national security,
health, environment and
economy. America ,,.i i-
culture provides 1i1 '
consumers with r1,,
safest, most afford. -
able and abundant
food supply in
the world. We
do have a
great story
to tell."
Speakers emphasized the


0 w
rVANII


I I


need to help the world rec-
ognize the value of agricul-
ture - from the farm gate to
the consumer plate.
'.'..Ii l ops included
-..I ocating Agricul-
lui." and "Better
i'lofit Through Bet-
ier Management."
As a grass-
roots organiza-
tion, Farm
Bureau has
been highly successful with
a long list of accomplish-


ments. In fact, Forbes maga-
zine continues to rank Farm
Bureau in the Top 20 of
America's most effective
lobbying organizations.
Shawn Crocker, a member
of the leadership group, said
Farm Bureau's success can
be traced to the exceptional
leadership found among its
members. In order for the or-
ganization to maintain this
heritage, Crocker said it is
vital for new leaders to be
developed to guide the orga-


nization in the future.
The event was held at the
Coronado Springs Resort at
Walt Disney World. Partici-
pants enjoyed an evening at
Pleasure Island, billed by
Disney as an island of enter-
tainment in an oasis of fun.
Before venturing on their
own, the group had dinner at
the Adventurer's Club, an
audience-participation come-
dy club set in .1937 filled
with tall tales of adventures
by a cast of explorers.
The Young Farmer and
Rancher program promotes
three contests which are de-
signed to recognize leader-
ship and involvement. They
are the Outstanding YF&R
Contest, the Excellence in
Agriculture Award and the
Discussion Meet. Winners
are announced at the FFBF
annual meeting in October.
The Florida Farm Bureau
YF&R Leadership Group in-
cludes men and women be-
tween the ages of 18-35. This
is a dedicated group of indi-
viduals who have committed
to a two-year program which
offers educational, profes-
sional and leadership devel-
opment. The primary objec-
tive of the program is to
build a more effective orga-
nization, which will help to
preserve this nation's her-
itage of freedom and expand
opportunities in agriculture.
The Florida Farm Bureau
Federation is the state's
largest general-interest agri-
cultural association with
more than 150,000 member-
families statewide. There are
Farm Bureaus representing
64 counties in Florida, where
agriculture comprises a sta-
ble, vital leg of Florida's
economy, rivaling the
tourism industry in economic
importance. Headquartered
in Gainesville, the Federation
is an independent, non-profit
agricultural organization and
is not associated u ith aniy
arm of the government. More
information about Florida
Farm Bureau is available on
the organization's Web site,

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? AL
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


Duane "Cash" Ho(ze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


0w 7124105
@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
pfippy, 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, 1/4 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.

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.


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.

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.

FAMILY FEATURES EDITORIAL SYNDICATE
Creamy, crunchy Green Bean Casserole
has been a "must have" on America's
holiday menus since its introduction in
1955. This classic side dish is a combination
of three popular items: green beans, Camp-
bell's Cream of Mushroom soup and
French's French Fried Onions. Today, over
30 million households will enjoy Green Bean
Casserole as part of their holiday feasts.
Created by Dorcas Reilly, former manager
of Campbell's Kitchen, 2005 marks the 50th
anniversary of this iconic recipe. Reilly said
her inspiration for Green Bean Casserole
(deemed the mother of all comfort foods) was
to "create a quick and easy recipe around

Swiss Vegetable Medley
A saucy variation of the classic Green
Bean Casserole.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell'q
Condensed Cream ..

Soup . . ,


things most Americans always had on hand in
the 1950s: green beans and Cream of Mush-
room Soup." Like so many great recipes,
Reilly's creation requires a minimal number
of ingredients (just five), doesn't take much
time to prepare (only 10 "hands on" minutes)
and can be customized to deliver a wide
range of variations.
One reason that the Green Bean Casserole
has stood the test of time is its versatility.
With just a few simple modifications, the
recipe can easily be transformed to reflect the
changing tastes and trends of the times. Swiss
Vegetable Medley is a sophisticated and saucy
spin on the classic recipe that features the
zesty combination of sour cream and Swiss
cheese. In the Holiday Vegetable Bake,


1/3 cup sour cream
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 bag (16 ounces) frozen vegetable
combination, thawed and
drained
1 1/3 cups French's French Fried
Onions or French's Cheddar
French Fried Onions
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese,
di ided


N I . soup, sour cream, black
pepper, vegetables, 2/3 cup
tried onions and 1/2 cup
: cheese in 2-quart casse-
role.
Bake at 350�F for
30 minutes or until
hot. Stir. Sprinkle
\ with remaining
cheese and onions.
Bake 5 minutes.
Serves 6


a variety of vegetables are mixed with
Cream of Broccoli Soup for a creamy and
colorful twist on the original dish. The
casserole, as we know it today, is a uniquely
American dish that first became popular in
the 1940s when men were fighting abroad
and women were left to take over their jobs
while still preparing meals at home. The
one-dish casserole was a quick and easy
way to get a wholesome, balanced meal on
the table. In addition, many early sources of
casserole recipes featured condensed soups,
like Campbell's Cream of Mushroom, as the
sauce that bound all the ingredients together.
All of these factors conspired to establish
the casserole as an integral element of the
American table.

What small animals and reptiles can teach your kids


When your youngster comes
home from school all excited
about having a class pet and begs
you for an animal of their own,
you may want to give their request
some serious consideration.
Numerous studies have shown that
animals teach children lessons
they'll carry with them for a
lifetime: responsibility,
friendship, compassion and
respect for nature.
While cats, dogs and fish are
the most popular pets, they are
also a lot of work, which may
explain why small animals like
mice, rats, hamsters, gerbils,
snakes and lizards are gaining in
popularity. According to the
American Pet Products
Manufacturer's Association
(APPMA) National Pet Owners
Survey, 9.7 million U.S.
households now have a small pet
in them -- 4.1 million of them are
reptiles.
If you're considering joining the
crowd, here's a guide that will get
you started, starting with some
basic information about the
animals.
* Lizards
Lizards are very quiet, have
virtually no odor, and are easy to
take care of with a minimum
amount of cleaning. You can even
miss a feeding occasionally and
not worry about it.
* Snakes
A snake won't come .when you
call it, or fetch a ball for you, but
watching it explore, eat and sleep
has a strange, soothing effect on a
lot of people. Many snakes eat
rodents, frogs, insects, or other
snakes. Smaller ones can also eat
prepackaged foods.
* Mice
Mice make great, low
maintenance, fun pets. They are
tame enough to be handled by
humans and clean enough that
their cages only require cleaning
once a week. They are docile and
won't bite unless stressed.
* Rats
Despite their reputation for
being mean and dirty, rats are
intelligent, affectionate and bond
strohgl)% with humans due to their
social nature. They groom
themselves with their paws and
tongues like cats do so they stay


t..


very clean; and they can be
trained to respond to their names,
sit, beg, run a race and even
navigate a maze.
* Gerbils
While they're considered the
most docile of the small furry pets
and easily tamed, gerbils are
energetic and friendly. Since they
have no real enemies in the wild,
they seldom scratch or bite and
are not easily frightened. Gerbils
can be trained to come to your
hand, and you can pick them up
and hold them, even put them in
your shirt pocket and take them
for a trip outside their cages. They
like the attention.
* Hamsters
Hamsters are good pets for kids
with inquisitive minds who like to
watch and ponder; but if you're
looking for a pet that will bond
with your child, avoid getting one.
Hamsters are very solitary
animals. If disturbed at the wrong
time by a youngster who just
\.antin to play, they will bite.
Care Needs
Care needs for any of the
rodents are similar. In addition to


food, water and shelter, they need
a safe place to exercise and play.
Reptiles need food, water and
shelter as well as exposure to
ultraviolet light, heat and
humidity.
Instead of running around the
pet store and gathering up all the
supplies you'll need for your pet
habitat one-by-one, these days
you can find starter kits that take
all the animals', needs into
consideration. A kit that's earning
lots of praise from the pet care
industry is made by Critter
Adventures of Colorado Springs,


Colo. "We designed our kits
specifically for kids just getting
started with the goal of making
the process as easy as possible,"
says Nancy Reed of Critter
Adventures.
The company's small animal kit
includes a plastic tank with an
easy-access, ventilated lid; a
colorful hideaway house for
comfort and privacy; a safe, quiet
eight inch exercise wheel for
entertainment; a suction-cup water
bottle with a friendly duck refill
reminder; a durable, colorful food
dish; and a care tips booklet.


Their reptile kit includes a
plastic tank with an easy-access,
ventilated lid; a terraced terrain
for basking, exercise and play; a
water lagoon for cooling and
refreshment; a hideaway cave for
comfort and privacy; a nurturing
UV and basking light fixture; a
food dish shaped like a rock;
decorative foliage; safe,
environmentally friendly bedding
and a care tips booklet.
"Not only do these kits include
most everything you'll need to get
started, they can be personalized,"
says Reed. There are four
different three-piece backgrounds
available that attach to the tank
using Velcro. Caveman Adventure
features a prehistoric look
including Woolly Mammoth, palm
trees and rocks; Dinosaur
'Adventure transports your pet to
'the forest as a pterodactyl flies
overhead; Backyard Adventure
features giant insects, flowers and
grasses; and Carnival Adventure
puts the animal in a circus like
atmosphere with a roller coaster
and circus tent in the background.
As you set your pet habitat up,
remember not to place it on an
unstable table, dresser, chair, or
bed where it could tip over easily.
It's also important to pay close
attention to the amount of sunlight
coming into the room. Some
animals cannot tolerate direct sun;
and be sure to seek out a place
where your pet will be protected
from drafts and extreme changes
in temperatures. Critter Adventure
Habitats are not available in
stores. Call (800) 750-5279 or log

for more information or to place
an order.
