Mother, boyfriend indicted in child's neath


Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
It took more than two years for authorities to
charge Marion Faye Cason and Fredrick Lynn Ste-
gall with murder but that day came July 28 after a
grand jury handed down an indictment that
charges them both with felony murder in the first
degree and other charges in the death of Cason's
daughter, Serinity Nicole Miller.
Serinity was less than a month away from her
third birthday when she died Jan. 2, 2003. Cason
and her boyfriend, Stegall, were indicted for first-
degree murder and aggravated child abuse. Cason
was additionally indicted on two counts of neglect
regarding Serinity and Cason's one-year-old son
who was removed from her custody after the little
girl's death.
! Cason, 26, whose address is 132 SE Hanover
Place, Lake City, was, arrested July 30 and placed
in the Suwannee County Jail. There is no bond on
a first-degree murder charge.
Stegall was already in the Suwannee County Jail
on violation of probation charges that were filed
after he was arrested in 20.03 on the child abuse


charge involving Serinity, according to the Live
Oak Police Department. He was processed at the
jail and is being held without bail on the murder
charge.
The indictment said that on Jan. 2, 2003, both
the mother and the boyfriend "unlawfully and
while committing the felony of aggravated child
abuse upon Serinity Miller, a child, did murder
Serinity Miller by striking, beating or otherwise
traumatizing Serinity Miller in some manner and
by some means to the Grand Jury unknown, there-
by inflicting upon Serinity Miller mortal wounds
and injuries or mortal sicknesses of and from
which said mortal wounds and injuries or mortal
sicknesses, Serinity Miller died."
The indictment adds that both Cason and Stegall
for a period of time beginning on or about July 15,
2002 through the day the little girl died did "com-
mit an aggravated battery" upon the child "and/or
did knowingly and willfully torture or maliciously
punish Serinity Miller," causing great bodily harm
and/or permanent disability to the child.
According to the indictment, the mother ne-
glected the little girl and failed to protect the child

Stegall, according to the
Live Oak Police Department
when the child died, had a
criminal record dating back to
1985 that included aggravated
child abuse, grand theft, ag-
gravated stalking and bur-
glary. When Serinity died,
Stegall had been out of jail
about 11 months and was liv-
ing with Cason and her two
children at 638 Washington
Avenue in the city of Live
Oak.
Stegall, who had lived in
Branford upon release from
jail, was the one who ran next
door to a neighbor that Janu-
ary day at about 11:10 a.m.
carrying Serinity and asked
for help. After calling 911, the
neighbor and a friend gave. the
child CPR, which was contin-
ued by EMS when they ar-
rived. However, once at the
hospital, Serinity Miller was
pronounced dead. Cason was
not at home at the time but
had left her son and daughter
with Stegall, police said.

the biggest possible dreams
but also achieve them, like
Keysha did."
After learning of her high
scores, Keysha's parents of-
fered to take her to Disney
World or meet the Governor
to celebrate her hard work
and great achievement.
Keysha chose to meet Gov.
Bush.
"Many times our highest
performing students do not
receive the accolades they
deserve for all their hard
work. Scoring well on the
FCAT is no accident-it
shows determination and fo-
cus on academics. Keysha is
to be congratulated for a job
well done," on hearing of
Keysha's strong academic
performance, Education
Commissioner John Winn
said.
"Keysha Horn is truly a
model student who exempli-
fies all the characteristics of
a student who desires to
learn," Suwannee Superin-
tendent of Schools Walter
Boatright said: "She has a
thirst for knowledge and her
family is to be commended
for instilling in her the im-
portance of an education.
Keysha's teachers admire
and support her desire to
learn," Boatright said.
"Keysha's reward for her
academic success came in
the form of realizing a wish
that she expressed to meet
and spend time with Gover-
nor Jeb Bush. The reward
for Suwannee District
Schools is to proclaim
Keysha as one of our own
students."
According to Branford El-
ementary Principal Carol
Risk, "Keysha has attended
Branford Elementary since
it -opened in December of

sions in the case of Kelo v
City of New London, there is
concern that this most funda-
mental freedom may be in
jeopardy," he added. "Howev-
er, the court did not recognize
that state legislatures can and
should set clear guidelines for
when eminent domain is ac-
ceptable. Therefore, the Flori-
da House will take the appro-
priate steps to ensure that in
Florida, eminent domain is
only asserted in situations


'where the public necessity
.and the public benefit are very
clear."
The committee is charged
with reviewing Florida's Con-
stitution, statutes, case law
and any other relevant rules or
ordinances in order to recom-
mend necessary action. Meet-
ing times, locations and other
details will be announced as
they are finalized.

1999. In addition to being an
outstanding student academ-
ically, Keysha is a very in-
volved student. She serves
on the Branford Elementary
Student Council and has
been a student representa-
tive for the last two years."
Keysha is an avid reader.
This year she was rewarded
for her love of reading with
an end of the year trip to
Lake City for lunch via lim-
ousine. Piano and twirling
are two talents at which
Keysha excels. She has per-
formed in front of the ele-
mentary school and during
parent night as part of the
annual Student Council Tal-
ent Show. Keysha also is the
varsity mascot for the Bran-
ford High School cheerlead-
ing squad.
Keysha's superior grades
have earned her a job as a
peer counselor for a first
grade class. She visits the
class and helps the teacher
present lessons to the stu-
dents. She tutors and works
one-on-one with the chil-
dren in the classroom.
"Branford Elementary is
very fortunate to have a stu-
dent of Keysha's caliber, and
we hope she will serve as an
example for the rest of the
student body," stated Risk
upon learning of Keysha's
visit to the Capitol. Next
year, Keysha and other out-
standing students will be
honored throughout the year
by Branford's Stars and Su-
perstars Program. Each
month students who accom-
plished a certain score on
the fourth grade test are rec-
ognized during lunch with a
small reward. Risk said,
"We hope Keysha's success
will help our student body
realize that hard work and
diligence are their own re-
ward."

OPINION

Why reporters must

be able to keep

confidential sources

confidential:

The case for a federal shield law now
By the California First Amendment Coalition
Across the land, freedom of the press-that is, the
freedom of American citizens, through the press, to be
kept informed about the affairs of government-is un-
der assault. The threat comes not from the left or the
right, from the Administration or Congress, but from
federal judges, prosecutors and litigants who no longer
feel constrained by law, ethics or policy from demand-
ing that journalists disclose their confidential sources.
It is estimated that during the past year more than 70
journalists and news organizations have been involved
in disputes with prosecutors and litigants in federal
court over access to unpublished, confidential informa-
tion. Dozens have received subpoenas demanding
records or testimony; one journalist, Jim Taricani, a tele-
vision reporter in Rhode Island, has already served a
sentence for refusing to identify an anonymous source;
and at least nine journalists have been held in contempt
and currently face the threat of imminent incarceration
or heavy fines (or both), including New York Times re-
porter Judith Miller, who was ordered jailed recently.
(Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper, explaining
that his source had expressly relieved him of his secre-
cy obligation, announced recently that he would coop-
erate with the Special Counsel.)
The threat against the press is not hew in American
history. During British colonial rule, writer John Peter
Zenger refused to reveal his sources while serving a sen-
tence for libelingg" the governor of New York, and Ben-
jamin Franklin declined to name the confidential
sources for stories appearing in his brother's newspaper
in Philadelphia.
What is new is the pervasiveness and intensity of the
threat. We have moved from a climate in which federal
courts were, under a variety of legal theories, protective
of reporters' confidential sources, to a climate in which
a wave of federal court subpoenas now places the inde-
pendence of the press in jeopardy.
At stake is the American people's right to know about
the uses and misuses of power in high places. If jour-
nalists cannot promise confidentiality to a source-and
have that source believe that his/ her identity will never
be revealed-the public will lose news reports of the
greatest importance and consequence for public policy.
These include reporting on corporate malfeasance, na-
tional security, and government corruption-all subjects
for which confidential sources are not merely desirable,
but indispensable. The best example in contemporary
history is the reporting by Washington Post reporters
Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein that uncovered the
Watergate scandals. The secrecy surrounding their most
valuable confidential source, FBI official Mark Felt
(aka "Deep Throat"), lasted more than 30 years and was
lifted only recently by Felt himself.
The judicial threat is almost uniquely federal. Forty-
nine states and the District of Columbia, through legis-
lation or court decision, have adopted "shield laws" pro-
viding an evidentiary privilege for reporters-much like
the privileges enjoyed by clergy, lawyers and psy-
chotherapists-to keep secret information given them in
confidence. Although some federal judicial circuits also
recognize such a privilege, most do not, and the
Supreme Court's recent decision not to review a crucial
contempt ruling against reporters Miller and Cooper
leaves no room for hope that the federal courts will, on
their own, end the assault on press freedom.
Accordingly, we look to Congress for action on this
urgent matter. Congress now has before it several bills
to establish a reporter's evidentiary privilege in federal
proceedings. We urge members of California's Congres-
sional delegation, Democrats and Republicans alike, to


come together and support.the most promising of these
bills. The issue is no longer whether a federal "shield
law" is needed; the issue, rather, is how soon it can be
enacted. Freedom of speech, upon which all our free-
doms depend, hangs in the balance.

OPINION


Human rights v.
In the wake of the U.S.
Supreme Court's recent 5-4
ruling in Kelo v. New London, 1.
statements have been made .
about property rights that are '
demonstrative of the paucity of
understanding among some
within the legal profession.
Carolyn Lochhead's July 1st A 2
San Francisco Chronicle arti- BY WALTE'
cle, "Foes Unite in Defense of
Property," reports on the coalition building in Con-
gress to deny federal funds to cities that use laws of
eminent domain to take private property for the ben-
efit of another private party.
But it's the article's report on a statement made by
a representative of People for the American Way,
lead opponents to constitutionalists being appointed
to the U.S. Supreme Court, that I'd like to address.
According to Ms. Lochhead's article, "Elliot
Mincberg, the group's legal director, said the case
[Kelo v. New London] had been brought by the Insti-
tute for Justice as part of an effort by conservatives
to elevate property rights to the same level of civil
rights such as freedom of speech and religion, in ef-
fect taking the nation back to the pre-New Deal days
when the courts ruled child labor laws unconstitu-
tional." To posit a distinction between civil or human
rights on the one hand and property rights on the oth-
er reflects little understanding. Let's look at it,
My computer is my property. Does it have any
rights - like the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit
of happiness? Are there any constitutional guarantees
held by my computer? Anyone, except maybe a
lawyer, would agree that to think of property as pos-
sessing rights is unadulterated nonsense.
So where do property rights come in? Property
rights are human rights to use economic goods and
services. Private property rights contain your right to
use, transfer, trade and exclude others from use of
property deemed yours. The supposition that there's
a conflict or difference between human rights to use
property and civil rights is bogus and misguided.
Let's go back to my computer example. Suppose
someone steals my computer. Hasn't he violated my

OPII

The Supreme Coi
June 23 was a typical hot,
steamy summer day in Washing-
ton, D.C. The 84-degree tempera-
ture had made all those marble- A
mantled monuments to democra-
cy and justice warm to the touch
and sent thousands of tourists '
scurrying for shade. But on Capi-
tol Hill, in the rarefied air inside
the U.S. Supreme Court, some- BY JACK F
thing happened that sent chills
running down the spines of American property owners,
especially those who own and operate small business-
es.
-By a 5-4 decision, the court re-interpreted the 214-
year old Fifth Amendment of the Constitution, giving
local governments the right to seize private property
for public use in the name of "economic development."
Known as the "takings clause," the last few words of
the amendment emphatically state that private property
cannot be taken away when needed for the public good
without fair compensation.
Americans have long understood the concept of em-
inent domain. Without it, we would not have a nation-
al interstate highway system or effective electrical en-
ergy grids.
But in ruling against homeowners whose properties
stood in the way of a New London, Conn., economic
revitalization project, the high court has set a danger-
ous precedent that could set off a land-grab by local
governments all across the .country. All local bureau-
crats and politicians now need to do to snatch private
property is declare that a parcel stands in the way of
their idea of economic development.
Even properties not considered blighted could now
be condemned to make way for public projects, such as
sports arenas and shopping malls, based on a promise
that they will create jobs and generate taxes.
It is baffling that Justice John Paul Stevens, who

puter that's violated your hu-
man rights; it's I. Why? Be-
cause I've used my computer in
>5 Creators Syndicate
a fashion that infringes on your
R WILLIAMS human rights to your property.
That it's bogus to make a dis-
tinction between human, civil and property rights can
be seen in another way. In a free society, each person
is his own private property; I own myself and you
own yourself. That's why it's immoral to rape or
murder. It violates a person's property rights. The
fact of self-ownership also helps explain why theft is
immoral. In order for self-ownership to be meaning-
ful, a person must have ownership rights to what he
produces or earns. A good working description of
slavery is that it is a condition where a person does
not own what he produces:. What he produces belongs
to someone else. Therefore, if someone steals my
computer, he's violated my ownership rights to my
computer, which I earned through my labor, and
therefore my human or civil rights to keep what I
produce.
Creating false distinctions between human rights
and property rights plays into the hands of Democrat
and Republican party socialists who seek to control
our lives. If we buy into the notion that somehow
property rights are less important, or are in conflict
with, human or civil rights, we give the socialists a
freer hand to attack our property.
As President John Adams (1797-1801) put it,
"Property is surely a right of mankind as real as lib-
erty." Adding, "The moment the idea is admitted into
society that property is not as sacred as the laws of
God, and that there is not a force of law and public
justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence."

But don't expect the nation's entrepreneurs to stand
back and let the bulldozers come rolling through. With-
in hours of the court's misguided re-writing of the
amendment, an effort was launched to help the justices
more clearly understand the law of the land as handed
down by the Founding Fathers. According to the Insti-
tute. for Justice, at least 25 states are considering
changes to eminent domain laws, and in Washington,
D.C., Sen. John Cornyn of Texas has introduced the
Protection of Homes, Small Businesses and Private
Property Act of 2005 (S. 1313), designed to protect
Americans from having their property confiscated un-
der the guise of public use. Sen. Cornyn's bill would
apply to all exercises of eminent domain power by the
federal government and all .exercises by state and local
governments using federal funds.
The Supreme Court has taken the Fifth Amendment.
Property owners are looking to Congress and the states
to take it back and return it to the American people.

Heat, downpours, fender
benders, heat......you know
the word....frustration! It's
been one of those weeks. But,
hey, everyone else has simi-
lar problems so there's not
much to do but go forward.
It's certainly been exciting
at the County Commission
budget hearings, I hear. I
wasn't involved but for a few
minutes one day but I heard
these hearings last week were
better than a soap opera on
daytime TV. You know, they
are open to the public and
trust me, you will learn so
much more than sitting home
watching TV. This stuff is
real, folks, be sure to attend
any time there's a meet-
ing...you'll be shocked. And,
that goes for the city meet-


ings too....they're just unreal.
The common folk out there
just doesn't .know how our
government is being run be-
cause you never go down
there and oversee it during
these open meetings that peo-
ple shed blood to achieve for
you years ago. But, then
again, if you just don't care
or just don't want to be enter-
tained, who am I to try and
encourage you to do your
civic duty!
Our very deepest sympa-
thies to the Mike Harris fam-
ily in the loss their 11-year-
old son last week.. Our hearts
break for them and this
tragedy that will never leave
their thoughts. May God
bless you as I know He can
and will and may you draw


your family and friends to
you to give you comfort.
A grand lady of Madison
passed away last week - Mat-'
tie Kelly Bums, mother of
T.H. (Rosalie) Burns of Live
Oak. Miss Mattie was a grand
lady who never missed a
church service as long as she
could drive or find someone
to stop and pick her up as
they passed her home on the
way to Hopewell Baptist
Church. She was involved in
everything that went on, an
avid participant in family
gatherings and one of the old-
est Kelly family members at-
age 95 to have participated in
the legendary Kelly-Lamb
family reunions held each
June at Hopewell. She will be
missed, and she leaves be-
hind a large family to mourn
her passing and memories of
a wonderful Christian
woman.
The Suwannee County An-
imal Control would like you
to know they have lots and
lots of dogs and cats there at
the Animal Control facility'
on Landfill Road off US 129
south who need a loving
home. This facility is NOT a
no kill shelter. Although


those involved would love
for it to be a no kill shelter, it
just can't happen at this time.
Donations are accepted and
because the shelter's board
has set up a 501(C)(3) chari-
table organization, you can
get tax credits for your dona-
tions. Just as important,
adopting an animals if you
can will save a life. The
monthly numbers are getting
larger and larger and the need
continually increases for
more homes for these ani-
mals. There's not money at
this point to build an en-
closed facility, but the one
that's been provided through
'the generosity of the county
has so far met the needs. The
time is already upon us when
the need cannot be met any
longer with the size and type
of the facility or the two em-
ployees who handle animal
control problems. As the
county grows, the needs of
all county agencies increases,
as it is with the animal shel-
ter. Help if you can... adop-
tion is needed. If you have
animals, please have them
spayed or neutered...it's the
best way to control the in-
creased needs at the shelter.

Daniels Funerals Homes, Inc.
of Live Oak is in charge of all
arrlTangements.


Jinny and Jack Wilson are
still enjoying their summer
of mini-vacations, relishing
their freedom to come and
go as they please, doing and
sharing those things most
important to all of us, that of
spending time with the fami-
ly and friends we love. I
can't think of two people
more deserving to enjoy
their lives than these two
wonderful, caring and giving
people.
When Jinny decided to
take the summer off so she
and Jack could do some seri-
ous, uninterrupted traveling,
she honored me with the
wonderful opportunity to
write the Wellborn News for
the Democrat, so Jinny fans
must suffer with me a while
longer, until such time as the
Wilson's periodic visits
home to the outback will
end, and they will be back
home, hopefully, permanent-
ly.
Jinny, you are a hard act to
follow ... I hope I have done
you proud. In your travels
may you and Jack be shel-
tered beneath the wings of
God ... and know that you
are loved by all your friends
in the outback ... we look
forward to your returning.
Remember the Wellborn
Community Association's
(WCA) monthly pancake
breakfast is on the first Sat-
urday of the month at the
WCA center on 8th Ave.,
Wellborn. Breakfast is
served from 7-10 a.m. Come
out and enjoy delicious blue-
berry or, if preferred, plain
pancakes, sausage, juice and
, coffee.... all for i nl, i-,4.peri'
. adultand $2,per child.., :: .
Wellborn's local Girl
Scouts will also have a yard
sale at the WCA center on
the same day of this month's
breakfast, which will be
Aug. 6.
Everyone interested in be-'
coming a member of the'
WCA is invited to the
monthly members meeting


held on the second Tuesday
... meetings begin at 7 p.m.
Light refreshments are
served afterwards. For more
information call 386-963-
4486 or 386-963-3412.
Don't forget the Wellborn
Neighborhood Watch Block
Party on Aug. 12. It will be
at the Blake Lowe Commu-
nity Center on 4th Ave. This
will be a fun evening for the
entire family. The party will
get started between 5 p.m.
and 6 p.m. That should give
everyone enough time to get
home from school, work or
whatever you do on that Fri-
day ... then come on out to
Wellborn ... dine on ham-
burgers, hot dogs, a variety
of salads, and cakes for
dessert. Covered-side dishes
are allowed, so bring an ex-
tra one if possible. Be sure
to bring your lawn chair so
you can sit while enjoying
the food and entertainment
... don't forget to buy your
drawing tickets for the BIG
prize donated by The Spirit
of The Suwannee Music
Park and Campground, Live
Oak ... two nights that in-
clude dinner-for-two, horse-
back riding and canoeing
down the beautiful, world
famous Suwannee River.
I tell you ... if Wellborn
gets any more continental
we will no longer be able to
call ourselves the colonial
outbackers of Suwannee
County.
It's time to say 'bye ... be
sure to pray for our troops
and their families, be kind to
a stranger, help your neigh-
bor, and tell those you love
...you love them.it;.,..remember.,
,the words .,of:,Joan:, O'Hara '
who said ... "The work will
wait while you show the
child the rainbow, but the
rainbow won't wait while
you do the work."

News, the Huntsville First

rectly listed. We apologize
for our mistake.


HEALTH BRIEF

Maintain bone density after

stopping hormone therapy


By quitting combination
hormone therapy, post-
menopausal women avoid the
drug's risk for breast cancer,
heart attack, stroke and de-
mentia.
However, since estrogen in-
creases bone mass, women'
also increase their risk for os-
teoporosis when they stop
taking the combination of es-
trogen and progestin.
"Fortunately, it is not neces-
sarily the end of the line if you
cannot take estrogen," said
Dr. Ronald Young, an associ-
ate professor of obstetrics and
gynecology at Baylor College
of Medicine and a co-investi-
gator of the Baylor Clinical
Center of the Women's Health


Initiative. "There are many
options for women to main-
tain their bone density."
Many medical experts ad-
vise taking combination hor-
mone therapy only for short-
term relief of the symptoms of
menopause, based on the re-
sults of the Women's Health
Initiative study, which' found
health risks associated with
the use of estrogen and prog-
estin.

state.
"From providing jobs and
collecting sales tax for the

Recognizing the retail in-

multi-dimensional global en-
terprises, the award categories
were based on annual sales.

Q: What's the difference between direct
and indirect dental restorations?
A: A direct restoration is a filling that your
dentist places into a prepared excavation
of a cavity and the procedure is
accomplished in one visit. Materials used
in a direct restoration include certain
composite fillings, dental amalgam, glass
* ionomers, and resin ionomers. In the
case of a direct restoration, the dentist
prepares the tooth, inserts the filling and
adjusts it all in one visit. An indirect
restoration generally requires two or
more visits. Indirect restorations include
crowns and bridges made with gold,
ceramic, composites or base metal
alloys. Inlays, onlays and veneers also fall
into the category of indirect restorations.
When an indirect restoration is called for,
a patient's first visit to the dentist is for
preparation of a tooth and/or for creation
of an impression of the area to be
restored. If an impression is needed, the
impression goes to a dental laboratory for
creation of the restoration. At a
subsequent appointment the dentist will
install and adjust the restoration.


couple still has that first Lake
City superette plus two gro-
cery stores and more than 40
convenience stores located in
eight counties throughout
North Florida. Committed to
community giving, Scaff and
S & S Food Stores contribute
generously to a number of
causes plus annually sponsor
a major fundraiser to benefit
Shands Children's Hospital in
Gainesville. Scaff's company
is one of the few remaining in-
dependently-owned conve-
nience store chains in the na-
tion.

Mentors change lives


Tammie Wagner



Chatisa Lett

Tammie Wagner is with
the Suwannee County
School system and mentors
Chatisa Lett, a senior at
Suwannee High School. "I
think it is important for a
student to have someone
that will listen without
judging them. There are so
many positive things about
Chatisa, she is very deter-
mined and studious. She
has overcome situations
that have made her stronger
and I am very proud of
her," Wagner said.
Lett is an honor roll stu-
dent and says, "I feel this
program is important be-
cause you become motivat-
ed to keep your grades up
and give you an opportuni-
ty to go to college. One
thing I like about my men-
tor is she keeps it real,
there are no pretenses with
her. Having a mentor helps
me realize how important
my life and school is. She
really does make a differ-
ence in my life and she's a
positive role model."

Why does my furniture seem to
disappear in the room?
-Everyone want their furninrce, walk' and drapes to "match."
But itmember if all your furnishings match too cloely. the,
end up canceling each other oui Furniture arid drapes that
blend right int.: the . jl. heo..,mc in'.-itblc, rjater ilmn
adding design interest to a room. To highlight furnishings,
instead, try to play light colors against dark, since light
colors will seem to move toward the eye, and dark colors
will recede into the background. A handsome armchair
upholstered in a light fabric, for example, will look
spectacular against slightly darker walls, while light drapes
will leap out against darker or wooden trim. For more great
advice come by and see the experts at Live Oak Paint Center.

classroom, have a center that
meets state standards and have
at least four children registered.
One teacher can have up to 10
children, but two teachers are
required for each class of more
than 10 children. Classes can
have up to 18 children.
The state has also created a
VPK summer program that
starts summer of 2006.
VPK begins this Friday, Aug.
5. Children may still register
even after the program starts.
Also, any provider may still
register to start the program.
To register a child or register
as a provider, call the Early
Learning Coalition of Florida's
Gateway at 866-752-9770. To
register a child you will need
proof that you're a Florida resi-
dent and that your child will be
four years old on or before
Sept. 1.
Early Learning Coalition of
Florida's Gateway Executive,
Director Dr. Thomas Logan
said the program is funded by
the state and was created in re-
sponse to voters requests in
2002. The VPK program offers
an academic pre-school experi-
ence for all four year olds, not
just to children with disabilities
and low-income families.
"This gives all parents a
chance for their children to ex-
perience a program with state
standards before kindergarten,"
Logan said.
VPK will not replace the
School Readiness Program, the
existing pre-kindergarten pro-
gram. Both will be implement-
ed this year.
The School Readiness Pro-
gram targets at-risk children
with disabilities or children
from low-income families. The
program will still serve chil-
dren of all ages during a regular
school-hour day. The school
system serves three and four-
year-olds and other providers
accept infants, toddlers and af-
ter-school children.
The VPK program offers ser-
vice to all families with four-
year-olds, but only funds 540
hours per school yedr, equaling
about three hours a day. Chil-
dren will attend school from
8:30-11:30 a.m. However, if
parents want their children to
stay a full day, they can apply


for School Readiness Program
funds or pay a fee for the addi-
tional time.
Board Member Julie Ulmer
said the main difference be-
tween the new pre-k program
and the existing program is that
VPK will be based on Sunshine
State Standards to address
school readiness.
Logan said the School
Readiness Program included
academics also, but VPK is
specifically directed toward
school readiness, particularly
early literacy. The program is
part of the Emergent Literacy
Initiative, which is geared to-
ward emerging literacy in chil-
dren who are not reading and
writing yet, he said.
"This comes in response to
the need for more focus in the
area of reading," Logan said.
"FCAT and other tests have
shown that children entering
kindergarten lack basic skills
necessary for reading."
The state has written Sun-
shine State Standards for four-
year-olds in math, literacy and
science. Instead of the teach-
ing, testing and assessment
process older children endure
to implement and assess the
success of learning standards;
VPK children will be assessed
differently. Representatives
from the Early Learning Coali-
tion will work with and observe
teachers, and children will be
tested upon entering kinder-
garten to assess skills learned
in VPK..
Logan said VPK will still
provide children with some
center time as the School
Readiness Program does. How-
ever, centers will be more
structured and teachers will
work with children more di-
rectly.
"The standards and develop-
mentally appropriate practice
will be implemented," he said.
The state has a budget of
$2.7 million to fund the pro-
gram. Salaries for teachers are
included in this even for private
or faith-based providers. Fund-
ing will be dispersed to each
school or provider based on the
number of children registered
in the program.

Help for smokers who want to quit
What can be done for a loved one who smokes? Educate them with-out
criticizing them? Or do so for yourself. Smoking is considered the single
most preventable cause of death and disease. Cigarettes cause more
deaths than cocaine, auto accidents, AIDS, alcohol, heroin, fire, suicide
and homicide combined. If you or your loved one have tried to quit
smoking and failed before, take comfort in the fact that most smokers fail
several times before quitting successfully. Past failures teach us how
difficult it can be, not that it is impossible. The next time you try to quit
smoking, the problem is you are only trying. Next time, be determined.
The nicotine patch and gum are available over-the-counter at most any
pharmacy. These are not cigarette substitutes. They merely replace some
nicotine that the body is accustomed to. By prescription, Zyban oral
tablets (also known as Wellbutrin, an anti-depressant) and Nicotrol, a
nicotine inhaler, are other options. Those who want to quit should seek
the guidance of someone who has successfully beaten this habit. Phar-
macists can help by discussing the over-the-counter and prescription
options that are available. The National Cancer Institute provides a smnok-
ing quitline (toll-free: 1-877-44U-Quit). 188941-F

Branford News Publisher
Terry Brown retired this
summer following 31 years
of service in the field of ed-
ucation, most of that being
at Branford Schools. Brown
was director of bands and
music instructor from 1977
until 1989 at BHS. In 1989-
90 Brown took a one-year
sabbatical to work on a lead-
ership-supervision and ad-
ministration at Florida A &
M University. That same
year Brown came on board
to work with Oscar Munch
in the field of guidance and
when Munch retired, Brown
stepped into that position.
In 1991, Brown earned his
masters in Guidance and
counseling.
When the new Branford
Elementary School opened
in January 2000 with Carol
Risk as principal, Brown
moved to the new school in
guidance and counseling
where he remained until his
retirement on June 15.
Brown said he worked un-
der four school principals
and five superintendents
from 1977-2005, and" all
four principals were excel-
lent to work with.
"You khoi\ there is al-
ways room for improvement
in all areas of the school
system: in math, in reading,
in writing and in the FCAT,"
Brown said. "Practice, prac-
tice, practice is the key to
improving. A good school is
a short cut to learning. The
master teacher can teach
you faster than you can
teach yourself."
Brown is married to

"I have enjoyed my 28
years of service in Suwan-
nee County," Brown said.
"My years in the school sys-
tem have been a challenge
and a privilege."
Brown said teaching and
counseling have been re-
warding careers, and he has
made many unforgettable
memories and made many
friends along the way.
He thanks the Branford
Schools for their profession-

He commends educators
to keep up the excellent
work.


"Educators are in the
business of helping, caring
and sharing in the lives of
children; this is good medi-

said.
Brown shows his love for
music and dancing and their
positive affects.
"Music is the universal
language," he said. "Guid-
ance has a lot of meaning in
it - G-u-I-dance. Let God
lead in the dance of life.
Positive people are God's

Brown encourages facul-

ents to think before they act,
look ahead of trouble, be
proactive and think positive

Cary A. Hardee




Suwannee County Earmer Elected Governor


From a farmer to the chief executive
of this State of Florida was the record
established by the late Cary A. Hardee,
the only Suwannee County resident to
serve as Governor of the Sunshine
State.
Cary A. Hardee was born on Nov. 13,
1876 four miles north of Perry. His
boyhood was spent on the farm and
because of his duties as a farmer's son
and limited opportunities for educa-
tion, he attended school only four
months of the year.
' Later he attended the Perry school,
but it was then only a grade school with
no high school courses. In these schools
he received the foundation for his
education, but the greater part of his
learning was acquired by determined
study on his own initiative.
While still a youth he prepared
himself as a teacher and at the age of 17
applied for and obtained a teacher's
license. He held positions in the schools
of Taylor, Jefferson and Madison
Counties. Despite the fact that he had
acquired sufficient knowledge to teach
others, Hardee knew there was a great
deal more he needed to learn and he
kept up his studying at nights and on
Sunday. This time he applied himself
to the study of law.
Finishing his school duties one
Friday afternoon in 1899, he applied
the same afternoon for admission to the
bar and was passed. He began the
practice of law in Madison and
immediately made a success of his
profession. His practice paid well and
he obtained many clients of means and
influence.
On Feb. 7, 1900 he married Miss
Maude Randall of Madison and soon
afer moved to Live Oak. Soon after he
moved here, he became attorney for
the First National Bank upon its
organization and held this position until
President Charles H. Brown resigned.


after which Hardee was elected
president of the institution,
The first public office that he held
was that of state attorney for the Third
Judicial Circuit, serving from 1905 to
1913. He was elected to serve in the
Florida House of Representatives for
the 1915 session and the freshman
legislator was immediately named
Speaker of the House. He was
reelected as representative and was
unanimously elected speaker again for
the 1917 session.
His ability as a legislator
undoubtedly drew statewide interest
for he was widely hailed when he
began his campaign for Governor. He
was elected to that office in 1920.
On Jan. 4, 1921 he took the oath of
office of Governor of the state in
Tallahassee and served through 1925.
It was under Hardee's administra-
tion that the first state highway
system was begun. Among the lasting
contributions which his administration
made was that of erecting historic
markers and monuments to preserve
the history of his state.
Following his term as Governor, he
returned to Live Oak and his position
as president of the First National Bank.
In 1926, he left the First National Bank
of Live Oak and for years was the head
of this institution. He served as
president until 1950 when he became
board chairman and his son-in-law,
Leus J. Day, assumed the presidency
of the bank.
Special activities of the Governor
included service of secretary of the
Governor's Conference for eight years,
during which time he visited all
sections of the nation. In the early
years of the Roosevelt administration,
he served in Washington, D.C. as
receiver of closed national banks.
Mrs. Hardee passed away in October
1953.

Courthouse Remains the Same
The Suwannee County Courthouse remains the center of county
government in 1979 as it has since its construction. The photo
above was taken in the mid 1950's before several additions were
built.


Civil War Damage



Minimal in County


When the year 1868 dawned,
Suwannee County was only two years
old and still in the process of founaug
its institutions. However, the, people
seemed prosperous. Then the ominous
*shadow of war spread across the
United States as brother fought
brother in the Civil War.
. Florida joined her sister states of Ihe
South in this war on the side of thOw
Confederacy with the signing of t'
Act of Secession on Jan. 11, 18f..
Among those signing was James '1
Newman of Suwannee County, sWoi
served as a county commissioner from
,1859 through 1865.
The war passed Suwannee County
over rather lightly so far as damage is
concerned with best estimates being
that Suwannee County furnished 250


men for service in the Confederate
Army, less than 15 per cent of the
population.
The Confederacy desperately needed
supplies from Florida and being unable
to ship them through the ports of
Jacksonville and Pensacola, construce-
tion of a railroad from DuPont, Ga. to
the railroad crossing in Suwannee
County was started. This perhaps can
be designated as the one single event
leading to the development of a city to
be named Live Oak.
Completion of the rail route provided
an outlet for the much needed supplies
to the rest of the South. It was at this
junction that the station to become
Live Oak was to build and a town to
spring up.

1960 Train Wreck


The Seaboard Railroad train wreck of 1960 is shown in the above
photo, taken about a mile west of Live Oak. The wreck took place a
few yards east of the L.O.P. & G. crossiA).


April 24, 1878
dealt with the law enacted by the
legislators of 1869 specifically setting
forth the requirements and measure-
ments under which a city administra-
tion must supply its charter.
Ordinance No. 2 dealt with "The
Mayor's Court."
It would mean'a jail sentence, the
ordinance said, for anyone to disregard
any summons or orders coming from
the sanctity of the court. Records,
however, indicate that the city did not
even have a jail.
Ordinance No. 3 placed a fine of $2 to
$5 on profane language on the streets,
or the exhibition of distribution of
indecent literature within the city
limits. The ordinance also carried a
clause which pli ed a fine on the
needless hammering of pots at hours
when most residents were asleep.
The council also passed an ordinance
which made it illegal for the shops,
toese, saloons, or cafes to remain open
on Sunday.
Ordinance No. 5 specifically set forth
that there was plenty of hitch-rack
room in Live Oak on the streets. And
because there was plenty of hitch-rack
room it would become necessary for
the Mayor's Court to impose a fine
against anyone who tied his horse or
mule to aiy private fence, tree, front
door or to any, other object which
would allow the horse or mule a radius
by which he could stand upon the paths
or sidewalks of the city.


Prizewinning Hound

Former Suwannee County Sheriff Hugh
Lewis is shown here pinning a deputy
sheriff's badge on his prize tracking hound,
Beulah, back in 1955. Beulah' was much
in the news in the early part of this decade
for her sleuthing led to the arrest of nearly
100 lawbreakers.

Twenty years following the
establishment of Suwannee County by
the Florida Legislature, the citizens of
Live Oak determined to incorporate
their town and establish a municipal
government. On March 21,1878 a call
was made for a public meeting to be
held at the Courthouse in the town of
Live Oak on April 24,1878to form such
a municipality,
The call was signed by 42 qualified
electors of the town.
The record reveals that there wsr,.-
39 present for this organizational
meeting and these voted unanimously
to,.r-ani ac . ,muo;,ip-l government for
,I he me, cri which was apparently
attended by all of the* leaders of ithe
community for that day was presided
eocr by Major, H A Wyse, who acti-,
as ,.ha.rmin Th. . ,rly records of th,-
community reveal that the Major was a
leading factor in the early political lif.
here and used his influence on mnnus
occasions.
Those who signed the petition for the
first meeting were:
T. C. Carter, C. K. Dutton, A. J.
Brinson, A. J. Gresham, II. M Wood, J.
T. Carroll, H. F. Dexerr, Tlhos.
Mudden, M. Dotson, J. A. Furicher, R.
R Mo.Nre S. W. Hicks, J. S. Hankins.
Jno. W. Hall, W. W. Clark, H. A. Wyse,
J. C. Baisden, L. D. Greene, D. M.
McAlpin, H. A. Blackburn, W. D.
Greene, V. M. Hollman, W. W.
Hankins, Jno. Fraser, T. S. Blackburn,
W: F. Bynum Jr., A', J. Faulk. .1. F.
.Sigo, C. Remington, W. R. Bennett. Joe
Blount, Alex Garner, J. R. Sessions and
W. S. Ilambry,
The notice for the meeting was
posted at "Dutton's," believed to be a
popular gathering place for the people.
With Major Wyse in charge of the
meeting things began happening soon.
T.C. Clark was named secretary and
the major immediately called upon
Professor M.M. Blackburn, afterwards
a figure in city politics, to explain
to those present just why the meeting
had been called and what 'i.rh.'sfi
could b . mpected.
I ilr.-irn i [ic o01ie A hhri :igihrn,id
the anmunLion- ou f th-* re-identi. L,
passed which officially established the


seal for the city. It was the engraving
of a giant Live Oak, with the words
"Live Oak, Florida," inscribed at the
bottom.
The next in order was a call for
nominations for the office of mayor.
Records fail to reveal the amount of
oratory, simply confining remarks to
the official votes on the first official
election ever announced in Live Oak.
The results for Mayor were: A. L.
Woodward, 21; H. M. Wood, 1; C. K.
Dutton, 4: M. M. Blackburn, &a.
Everyone present voted.
The aldermen were next nominated
and voted upon. When the oratory
ended, there were 17 of the 39
nominated for the five positions open
as aldermen.
Those who were elected and the
votes they received are as follows: H.
A. Blackburn. 26: H. M. Wood, 35; C.
K. Dutton, 34: H. A. Wyse. 22; and
Thomas Thompson, 15.
Joe Blount was named clerk and city
treasurer without apparent opposition.
In the selection of the first peace officer
of the day, S. W. Hicks was named as
marshal and tax collector;. He
afterwards resigned and a number of
administrations went into the history
before any one man held the office of
marshall and collector for longer than
one year.
At the meeting the official boundary
line of the city was set as described in
the following 'notes:
"Boundary line to include and to
begin at a stake in the center of the
street running between the residences
of Thomas Lloyd and Neil Remington
and to about 200 yards west to the
northwest corner of the city and south
2300 feet, thence west 3530 feet to a
stake, thence 2300 feet, south 86 chains
to a stake, thence north 2300 feet, and
east 3530 feet to a stake, west 2300,
then north to the beginning corner.
It is quite possible that those who
followed the surveyors had these limits
in mind as it appears there are too
many "easts" and "wests" without
Intermittent directions running the
other way. , '

Feeding


alligators


takes its toll
A vehicle accident in the
early morning hours recently
prompted a multi-agency
search for the truck in the
Paynes Prairie Preserve State
Park.
According to Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) Law En-
forcement Officer John Dun-
can, Alachua County, the dri-
ver lost control of his vehicle
on Highway 441 and the
truck sank into the canal.
The Florida Highway Pa-
trol (FHP)investigated the
accident and called upon the
Alachua County Sheriff's
Office Dive Team and FWC
to help recover the vehicle.
FWC officials also per-
formed another function at
the site: alligator control.
"When we arrived on the
scene, there was an extreme-
ly aggressive alligator that
definitely showed all the
signs of having been fed by
people," Duncan said. "The
gator showed none of the
natural fear of people that a
gator should exhibit and ac-
tually tracked us as we
walked back and forth on the
retaining wall."
A nuisance alligator trap-
per was called and the 11-
foot alligator was captured.
i"Unfortunately, because it
was so aggressive, we had to
put the gator down for the
safety of the divers in the
water," said Duncan.

Couple

arrested

on charges

of feeding

alligators
On Friday, July 22, Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) Of-
ficers arrested a Charlotte
County couple for deliberate-
ly feeding an alligator. An of-
fense that the agency alligator
experts say is often associated
with fatal attacks against hu-
mans.
James Johnny Jones,
D.O.B. 9/21/69, of 8124 Al-
fred Blvd., Punta Gorda, and
Jackie L. O'Neil, D.O.B.
5/21/70, also of the same ad-
dress, were charged with
feeding alligators, a second
degree misdemeanor punish-
able by up to $500 and/or 60
days in jail.
"When fed, alligators
quickly lose their natural fear
of people and begin to associ-
ate human presence with a
feeding opportunity. This al-
tered behavior creates a sig-
nificant danger* that jeopar-
dizes the safety of anyone
who may come into contact
with that animal,' said Harry
Dutton, head of the FWC alli-
gator management section.
FWC Officers Donna Caro,
Jason Forker and Investigator
Larry Jernstedt acted on a tip
from an anonymous source
who had witnessed a man, a
woman and two children
feeding an alligator from a
boat on the Peace River.

"Bailey & Buddy"

scores in the field

and during certification


As the truck pulled into the.
open field, the yellow Labrador
in the vehicle kennel began
panting.
"Hear how excited he's get-
ting," asked Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) Law Enforce-
ment Officer Leonard "Cricket"
Bailey, from Taylor County.
"This dog knows he's going to
work. He loves his job."
In the tall grass, bobwhite
song serving as background
music, Bailey paced out a
"track" for the dog to follow
with a chew toy marking the
end.
He returned to the truck to re-
lease "Buddy," a 31/2 year-old,
who has been part of the FWC's
K-9 program for two years.
Buddy wiggled impatiently


as Bailey fastened the dog's
working harness.
"Hang on. I want to go too,"
Bailey said to the dog as the of-
ficer snapped the 30-foot lead
to the harness.
Bailey commanded Buddy to
search. The dog took off like a
shot with Bailey in tow and
headed directly for the chew
toy. Grabbing the toy, Buddy
ran back to Bailey and placed it
at the officer's feet.
"Good boy, good boy," Bai-
ley praised. "Go ahead. Have
fun." '
The dog took off, chew toy in
mouth, running circles around
the field.
"That dog is a tracking fool,'

Hunter Cason, the smallest
and youngest at 65-pounds
lost one match and placed
third. But Hunter also quali-
fied for the National tourna-
ment to be held at in Virginia
Beach, Va. at the Convention
Center June 26-30.
The quest for All-Ameri-
can status was now a priority
and mat time was a must for
the first-year wrestlers. Be-
tween weekend camping
trips with their families, the
boys practiced three, four or
five days a week and wres-
tled all day on Saturday.
The four boys competed
in numerous tournaments
throughout the state of
Florida and Georgia includ-
ing USA State Freestyle


Championships at Martin
County High. Once again the
boys brought home the hard-
ware. Twelve-year-old Bob-
by Cason and John Willis
placed third in the 75 pound
and 145 pound weightclass.
Jerry Willis won his second
state championship title in
the 125 weightclass.
Although failing to place
in the USA tournament,
Hunter Cason would prove
to be the first All-American
of the four. When he compet-
ed at the Brandon High
School in the Russ Cosart
Classic placing seventh, he
became a Brute All-Ameri-
can.
By June 25, each of the
wrestlers had won over 50
matches each and were on
their way to the NHSCA Na-


tionals in Virginia Beach
where 1200 wrestlers would
compete for All-American
gold.
The tournament was long.
The boys wrestled in Bull-
dog style never giving an
inch according to their coach
David Laxton. While Hunter
was only able to win one
match, his brother Bobby
was only one match away
from All-American. He lost
by only three points in his fi-
nal match of the tournament.
Jerry and John Willis both
placed as NHSCA All-Amer-
icans. Jerry pinned his oppo-
nent and placed sixth. John
lost by a decision and placed
second in the nation in the
145 weightclass.
Congratulations to all the
new 2005 All-Americans.

feed one, you are effectively

other problem was we could-

humans.
"When fed, alligators
quickly lose their natural
fear of people and begin to
associate human presence
with a feeding opportunity.
This altered behavior creates
a significant danger that
jeopardizes the safety of
anyone who may come into
contact with that animal,"
said Harry Dutton, head of
the FWC alligator manage-
ment section.
FWC officers operated on
a tip from an anonymous
source who had witnessed a
man, a woman and two chil-
dren feeding an alligator
from a boat on the Peace
River. When they received
another call from the anony-
mous source that the couple
had returned, officers staked
out the area and were able to
video and photograph the
feeding. FWC trappers were
dispatched immediately and


removed two aggressive alli-
gators, 8 foot 9 inches and 5
foot 11 inches in length,
from the area.
The complete news release
regarding this arrest can be
viewed at:
http://myfwc.com/what-
snew/05/statewide/alligator-
feeding.html.
These arrests come in the
wake of an unrelated fatal al-
ligator attack that occurred
in Port Charlotte a week ear-
lier. On the evening of July
15, Kevin Albert Murray, 41,
of North Port, was swim-
ming in a canal off the
Myakka River when a 12-
fo.ot-2-inch alligator' at-
tacked and killed him.' Resi-
dents of the area claimed that
alligator had been fed.
It is illegal to feed alliga-
tors and the FWC strongly
recommends not feeding oth-
er wildlife where alligators
rihight be present. Feeding


ducks, turtles or throwing
fish scraps in the water
where alligators can associ-
ate humans with a feeding
opportunity, is tantamount to
feeding an alligator. Infor-
mation on how to prevent
problems with alligators is
listed in the FWC's "Living
with Alligators" brochure
found online at
MyFWC.com/gators

about the feeding of alliga-
tors is urged to report the in-
cident to the toll free

reporting violations may re-
main anonymous and be eli-
gible for a reward.

be reported to the FWC Alli-
gator Hotline by calling toll

When they received another
call from the anonymous
source that the couple had re-
turned, officers staked out
the area and were able to
video and photograph the
feeding. The arrests were
made at about 1:30 p.m. on a
portion of the river known as
Jim Long Lake. FWC trap-
pers were dispatched imme-
diately and removed two ag-
gressive alligators, eight
foot, nine inches and five
foot 11 inches in length, from
the area.
Jones is a legally licensed
commercial crab fisherman.
A check revealed Jones had
an active warrant from Char-
lotte County for unspecified
charges. He was transported
to Charlotte County jail for
those, charges by a sheriffs
deputy.
Jones' and O'Neil's arrest
comes in the wake of an un-
related fatal alligator attack
that occurred in nearby Port
Charlotte a week earlier. On
the evening of July 15, Kevin
Albert Murray, 41, of 1763


Stimmel St., North Port was
swimming in a canal off the
Myakka River when a 12-
foot-2-inch alligator attacked
and killed him. Residents of
the area claimed that alliga-
tor had been fed.

"Bailey & Buddy"


Continued From Page 1B

Bailey said. "He can find any-
thing. Did you see how he
alerted on the track even before
I asked him to search? He's a
good dog."
Bailey should know. Buddy
is the third dog Bailey has
trained and worked in the
agency's K-9 program. Bailey
has been a law enforcement of-
ficer with the Game and Fresh-
water Fish Commission and
now FWC for the past 19 years.
He's been a part of the K-9 pro-
gram for more than 16 years
and has had Buddy since the
dog was six weeks old. Bailey
began training the dog when
Buddy was 14 months old.
"We were part of the first
FWC K-9 academy two years
ago. We graduated from that
and have been working ever
since," Bailey explained.
"My other two dogs, Wise
Guy and Reba, both worked in
the K-9 program about seven
years each before I retired
them. Both were great trackers.
I've got another one with Bud-
dy," Bailey said.
To prove that point, Buddy
recently completed a five-day
certification program in Punta
Gorda.
"Our dogs have to be certi-
fied once a year in tracking and
detection. The U.S. Police Ca-
nine Association sets course
standards for police dog certifi-
cation," Bailey explained.
Former U.S. Secret Service
trainer Raymond Rhienhart led
the teams through the June 20-
24 certification course in track-
ing and detection.
According to Bailey, the de-
tection course consisted of five
vehicles set up with two deer
hides hidden in two of the vehi-
cles and three rooms with two
hides hidden in two of the
rooms. The requirement was to
find at least three of the four
hides.
For the tracking portion of
the certification, three tracks
were laid out with an article
hidden-on,each track and an ar-...
ticle to be found by the dogs at
the end. of the track. The tracks
are "aged" for 30 minutes be-
fore the dogs begin working.
"Buddy located all the arti-
cles on the tracking course. I
think he got a perfect score,"
Bailey said. "This was the Po-
lice Dog 1 course and we were
certified. However, since we
scored at least 165 on this
course, we were able to go to
the next level, the Tracking Ex-
ceptional course which is set
aside for the more experienced
teams S' the advanced track-.
ers," Bailey explained.
"We had five FWC K-9
teams complete the Tracking
Exceptional course," Bailey
said. "This is the first time
since 1993 where an FWC dog
has completed the Tracking Ex-
ceptional course. The last time
was when I worked Wise Guy


through it. Now we have five
teams who have completed it.
That's quite an accomplish-
ment."
The four other teams that
proved exceptional in the
course were Jeff Gier and K-9
Bubba, Avery Tubbs and K-9
Jack, Tim Miller and K-9 Jake,
and Wayne Hargabus and K-9
Madison.
"Buddy is certified in track-
ing and the detection of deer
and turkey meat. He's also
trained in area searches and
search and rescue missions,"
Bailey explained.
The FWC K-9s do not re-
ceive aggression training.
"When we're called out, we
don't know what we'll be do-
ing. It's different every time. It
all depends on the case," he
said.
According to Lt. Bruce
Cooper, Bailey's supervisor,
"From a patrol supervisor's
standpoint, it's an enormous as-
set to have such an exceptional
K-9 team working for you. On
numerous occasions, we have
had people give up rather than
attempt to flee, knowing we
had Officer Bailey and Buddy
available to conduct a search."
Bailey said, "About six
months ago, a gas station in
Perry was robbed. We were
called out to see if we could
track the subject. Buddy
tracked him all the way down
the shoulder of Highway 19
into a neighborhood. That dog
went through about 80 people
who were watching the events
unfold during this search. I was
amazed. I didn't know how
he'd react to that many people
milling around. I was afraid the
track would be contaminated.
"But he stayed focused, kept
on the track and eventually
found the clothes and the
weapon the suspect had used in
the robbery. The suspect's jack-
et, mask, pants and weapon had
been discarded in the bushes.
The authorities were able to
pull DNA off the mask and
identified the suspect who was
later arrested. 1 was very proud
of him for helping put that case
together," he said.
Bailey explained that the
most important thing for a K-9
handler is to trust the dog.
"We were working one case
where someone was involved
in a car chase with law enforce-
ment. The suspect left the car
and we were able to track him
into the woods. Buddy kept go-
ing back to this particular
house, but the occupant insisted
that the suspect had run through
the yard and she didn't know
who he was or where he was
located. But Buddy kept alert-
ing on that house. We found out,
later that the suspect had been
in the house and was known to
the resident. Buddy knew it,"
Bailey said. "That suspect was
later arrested."
Buddy isn't perfect, howev-
er, and Bailey is quick to tell


stories about him.
"On one of his first tracking
jobs, we had been called out to
search for a suspect who had
run into a wooded area. Buddy
was working hard, doing exact-
ly what he was supposed to do.
I watched him work the area
and head into a bunch of pal-
mettos," Bailey said.
"I could hear him roaming
around in the underbrush when
suddenly I heard him give a
loud 'Yelp.' My first thought
was he had a run-in with a
snake. He came charging out of
the brush, running toward me
for all he was worth. When he
got closer, I discovered what
the problem was. He had come


up on a skunk and gotten
sprayed," he laughed. "What
was worse was I had a two-hour
ride back to Perry with him in
the truck. That dog stank!"
With the chew toy still in his
mouth, Buddy jumped back
into his truck kennel for a well-
deserved drink of water.
"To get a drink, you're going
to have to drop that thing," Bai-
ley told the dog. "I'm not going
to take it away from you."
With thdt reassurance, Buddy
dropped the chew toy and be-
gan lapping the water, keeping
a close eye on his toy.
Bailey patted the dog's head
and told him, "You're a good
dog."

Lake Wales, Fla.- As the
world has grown more com-
plex and its pace more hurried,
there is one spot in the heart of
Central Florida where time
stands still and a sense of
peace and tranquility prevail.
for more than 75 years, His-
toric Bok Sanctuary has of-
fered some of Florida's most
remarkable experiences.
Through its historic landscape
gardens, unique Singing Tow-
er and palatial 1930s winter
estate, the Sanctuary offers
visitors unparalleled opportu-
nities for artistic, cultural, per-
sonal and spiritual enrichment.
Located approximately 55
miles southwest of Orlando
and 60 miles east of Tampa
near Lake Wales, the nearly
250-acre Historic Bok Sanctu-
ary was originally one man's
gift to the world, and today is
the perfect gift for everyone to
give to themselves. When Ed-
ward Bok left Den Helder,
Netherlands at age six and im-
migrated to America, he did
not understand the language,
customs, or culture of his
adopted country. Through de-


termination and hard work,
Bok became a highly success-
ful publisher, Pulitzer Prize-
winning author, respected hu-
manitarian and an advocate of
world peace. His grandmother
told him to "make you the
world a bit better or more
beautiful because you have
lived in it," and he did that
throughout his lifetime.
During visits to his winter
retreat in Mountain Lake Es-
tates near Lake Wales, Bok be-
came enchanted with the beau-
ty, dramatic sunsets and vistas
at nearby Iron Mountain locat-
ed on peninsular Florida's
highest point.
Awed by the tranquility of
the area, Bok wanted to create
a special place that would
"touch the soul with its beauty
and quiet," and he believed it
would be the perfect setting
for a bird sanctuary. He pur-
chased multiple lots that were
destined to become residential
sites and commissioned the
world's most renowned arti-

round the flag
its campus and all five cen-
ters. That number grew when
the college decided to put
flags in instructional labs as
well.
In the end, the Collegiate
\eteians Society bought 300
flags and metal wall brackets
for Santa Fe. Almost $1400
was donated by college stu-
dent,, faculty and staff. Ad-
ditional funding came
fro in the Alachua Coun-
t, ty V veterans Memorial
Committee which
helped the coun-
ty's schools
meet the state
et mandate.
" h e
SFCC Colle-
giate Veterans Society is
very proud of this initiative
and President Sasser's trust
in the society to raise the
needed funding," said Santa
Fe Veterans Advocate John
Gebhardt, Gebhardt attended
college on the GI Bill after
serving in the Army and is
now advisor to other veter-
ans completing their educa-
tion the same way.
Now that they have led
Santa Fe to meet the flag
deadline, the veterans are fo-
cused on another fund-rais-
ing project. They have thus
far raised $6,000 of $20,000
needed for two brigade size
(20 feet by 30 feet) U.S.
flags and a 92-foot flag pole.
Clements said that two
flags are needed because of
wear and tear-one flag is
flown while the other is be-
ing mended. The flag is to be
lighted and flown 24 hours a
day on the Interstate 75, or
west side of the campus.
"This is to honor all veter-
ans," said Clements. "There
are lots of memorials for
combat veterans, but this
flag would honor all those
who serve, including those in
the future." CVS members
hope to complete the project
with a dedication on Flag
Day, June 14, 2006.

Protect your child

against SIDS
SIDS, or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, is the sudden death of an apparently healthy child
under one year of age. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), SIDS is the third
leading cause of infant mortality in the United States and the No. 1 cause of. death among
infants under the age of one. While experts do not know exactly what causes SIDS, there are
steps that you can follow that have been shown to reduce the risk of it happening to your child.
SIDS RISK FACTORS
There are certain infants who are more predisposed to SIDS than others. Risk factors include
the following:
* A baby who is born prematurely or at a low birth weight.
* Infants who were exposed to cigarette smoke in the womb, or those exposed to secondhand
smoke after they are born.
* African-American
SbabMale infants are . .
more susceptible than
their female
counterparts.
Infant care starts
even before your
baby is born. Visit an
obstetrician within
the first three months
of your pregnancy,
and follow with ."
regular checkups to
baby in good health.
Be a healthy mom-to-
be by not smoking or .
drinking during .
pregnancy, and avoid li
other. smokers. And
stay off the cigarettes r
after your baby is

Your baby spends a bassinet that is free of blankets and stuffed animals.
lot of time asleep, and
how he sleeps can
affect his risk of SIDS. You, your caregiver and anyone else who watches your baby should
place your baby on his back when he is sleeping. In fact, since the "Back to Sleep" campaign
was initiated 10 years ago, sponsored by the National Institute of Child Health and Human
Development, the Maternal and Child Health Bureaui, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the
SIDS Alliance, and the Association of SIDS and Infant Mortality Programs, the number of
SIDS cases around the world has steeply declined.
While doctors are still unsure of why babies who sleep on their stomach are at a higher risk
for SIDS, most surmise that it has to do with these three lea.sons.
* In the prone (stomach) position, babies achieve a deeper sleep and arie less likely to'awaken
themselves should they momentarily stop breathing (sleep apnea).
* On the stomach, infants increase their likelihood'of rebreathing exhaled air that is trapped
between the mattress and their face.
* Infants who may not yet be able to lift their head steadily or turn over cannot roll
themselves if they've put themselves in a dangerous position (up against a crib bumper or
tangled in a blanket).
Infants who sleep on their sides are also at risk because, they can roll over into the prone
position, but not to the extent that children who are put directly on their stomachs can.
SLEEPING ENVIRONMENT
Protect your little one by creating a safe sleeping environment. His crib or bassinet should
have a secure, tight-fitting mattress covered with a sheet. Don't put a baby to sleep on sott
surfaces like sofas, chairs, beanbags, pillows or waterbeds; he can suffocate on these surfaces.
Remove all loose bedding and stuffed toys, including comforters, quilts and blankets, which
can hinder breathing. And don't let your baby sleep in your bed or with other siblings. As
much as both of you may like it, a baby can suffocate in pillows and comforters, or if you
accidentally roll on top of him, or he may get stuck in between the bed frame and the wall
(look into a safe cosleeper bassinet if you prefer to keep your little one within arm's reach).
Overheating can also contribute to SIDS. According to the CDC, infants can overheat if they
are overdressed, are covered with blankets, or are in a room that's too hot. Set the baby's
nursery at room temperature - between 68 and 72 degrees. Don't put him directly next to a
radiator or other heat source. If it's cold outside, don't overbundle him in heavy clothing or
blankets or pump up the heat. Instead, dress him in a sleeper or a "wearable blanket" known as
a sleep sack. During warm weather, dress your baby-in lightweight sleepwear, and cool the
room with an air conditioner or fan.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Common questions about SIDS answered:
* Many pediatricians have received calls from parents desperate for a night's sleep who have
said, "My baby doesn't like to sleep on his back. Can I put him on his stomach?" In most cases
the answer is an emphatic "no," A young child will learn to accept the back position over time
and should not be put at risk so his parents can get some shut-eye.
* There are an array of sleep positioners that are designed to prevent infants from rolling over
onto their stomachs. These are not recommended for use and can actually ensnare an infant
who is strong enough to roll over.
* Your infant can be placed on his stomach during supervised "belly time." This means when
you or a caregiver are watching him when he is playing. This strengthens neck muscles and
prepares your child for becoming mobile.
* Some infants will develop a flat, bald spot on the back of their head from back sleeping. It
is not permanent and will likely clear up when your child gets older and spends more time in a
sitting position.
While there is no known cause for SIDS, you can indeed do everything in your power to
protect your baby from it.

As people, we have been given a wonderful opportu-

those in turmoil, joy to the sad, lonely, or depressed,
nourishment to the hungry and love to those needing

-onal relationship with the very God who created
us all.
God has given us animals to care for, a world
full of great beauty shown in mountains,
streams, rivers, beaches, oceans, lush green
grass, full tall trees, flowers in every color,
freshly fallen snow, blue skies, sunny days, a
spring rain shower, a rainbow, a little kitten,
a bunny hopping across the yard, a beautiful
bird in flight, a sunrise or sunset, so much
beauty around us, all for God's people to en-
joy! Have you ever thought about the differ-
ence in the things that are Godmade and the
< things that are manmade? Only God, our cre-
ator, has the master plan or design. People can
try to make something great, but it pales in
comparison to God's creations. In this world
we are living in there are people who will tell
you God does not exist. There are people who
believe they will become a god someday. There
are people who think everything just happened.
I tell you when I look at the beauty of a new-
born baby or the birth of a new calf in the field,
or see the intricate details on a little humming-
bird, I believe. You see, God does not make things up
a- He goes. He does not need to ask anyone for help,
iHe already has all things in creation planned before
the\ are in sight. He knows every person who lives, has
lied and all those yet to be born.
Nothing about you is an accident, God saw you be-
fore you were born. He knew what you would look like,
% here you would live, what you will do in your life, and
he knows how long you will live. God has a reason for
everything. He creates each person to be a unique in-
dividual. There are many types of people, some who
live in fear, some who get angry, some who are only
happy when they get what they want. There are givers
and takers, some are loving, kind and full of joy, main-
taining a positive, upbeat attitude in all circum-
stances. Yes, the world is full of different people. What
kind of person are you? Do you live to serve God and
others, or do you live to be served? Revelation 4:11
says "You created cer)ithing, and it is for Your plea-
sure that they exist and were created."
You see, God created people to commune with Him.
He does take pleasure in His people, especially those
who are living for Him, and take time to know Him, to
worship Him, to seek His face, to find out what pur-
pose He has for their lives.
We have an awesome place in this world,living as
God's people, enjoying God's beautiful creation and
loving His animals and hopefully all of His people.

Wow, as people we have the awesome opportunity to
talk to, live for and worship the creator of the uni-
verse!
Now for some big questions concerning our lives as
people. What example do we set for the other people
in this same world? Do the people around you see Je-
sus in you? There is a song called "Can the World
See Jesus in You?." How about you, can the waitress
or waiter in the restaurant see Jesus in your words
and actions? When you are waiting in a long line at
the store, does your behavior to others in line and to
the cashier reflect the love of God? When your fami-
ly or friends don't do as you want them to, when
things are not going your way, can they still see Je-
sus in you? We are all people, but are we all people of
God?
Do we treat all people regardless of the color of
their skin, or how tall or short, overweight or thin,
rich or poor that they may be the same? God does
not see color. He is not affected by someone's height,
weight,or financial status. He created ALL people,
and He loves ALL people. God loves all people the
same,and He will always answer the prayers of all of
His people. This world is full of all kinds of people,
some are kind and loving, some are hateful and
mean, some are always pleasant to be around, and
some are not.
In this world there are people who are serving God
and there are people who are serving another master.
They are the ones who are lost and need to see Jesus
in our lives. They need the only hope available for
salvation, Jesus. As people, we can brighten some-
one's day with a simple smile, a hug or a sharing a
cheerful word of encouragement with someone.
Each day we live we have the opportunity to be hap-
py and determine to live a life full of joy, to go with
the flow, choose not to complain, but rather be
agreeable, be pleasant, be a joy to be around, or we
can choose to be sad, full of complaints, miserable
and make everyone around us feel miserable also. As
people, each of us has an affect on the people around
us. Whether it is positive or negative is up to us. I
know from experience thow I respond to situations.
How I approach different things that come my way
really does affect those around me.
Recently, I'had the opportunity to see first hand how
much nicer a day can be when I just went with the
flow, let the worry go and determined to enjoy the day
and be a joy to all around me whatever came my way.
My family noticed the difference, and it was really
proof to me that we can change the way we deal with
things. We can smile and not complain. We really can
live each day with the joy that comes from Jesus. Yes,
I know sometimes we don't feel well, things may -be
falling apart around us, we don't know the answers,
we are confused or hurting, but always remember that
as long as you have breath, you have life! Think about
it, does our complaining ever stop the rain? People
who are alive should always cherish each day they live
and make memories full of joy and happiness with all
those around them. "Do everything possible on your
part to live in peace with everybody," Romans 12:18.
We are living in a world where people are looking for
answers. Sometimes they find what they think is a an-
swer in the wrong places. Let us always be sure our
lives are lives that should someone follow our steps,
they will be following Christ. "The steps of a good man
are ordered by the Lord: and He delighted in His way."
Psalms 37:23.
Think about it, can the world, and your family see
Jesus in you?

Hey Kids! Back to school


Can you believe summer is al-
most over and school is starting
again? Some of you kids may be
happy you get to go back to
school. Some of you wish summer
would never end, and some of you
will go to school at home, but the
truth is school will start soon. Of
course, you can enjoy some of the
summer fun after school and dur-
ing weekends as the weather will
still be hot for a long time yet.
Also, you and your families can
still spend time together in the
evenings and on the weekends.
Now is the time to get serious
about school, do your very best,
and remember to ask for help if
you need it. If you have a prob-


lem, tell your mom, dad, or
teacher. Don't ever be afraid to
ask for help, and remember that
everywhere you go, even at school,
God is right there with you. He
will protect you, and He will be
your best friend. You can talk to
God at school. All you need to do
is talk to Him silently in your
mind; He will hear you, and He
will answer you.
If you don't like school, think *
about this: there are children
in many other countries who
have never had the chance to
learn to read or write, or who
are without enough food to eat
and houses to go home to.
Learning is a privilege,


whether it is in a public, private or
home school setting, so be thank-
ful you have a place to learn and
books to read. You are very
blessed to live in America!
When you have to get up early to
go to school, be thankful you woke
up and ou can learn! Remember
to read God's Word. God promises
in Isaiah 54:13 "And all thy chil-
dren shall be taught of the Lord;


and great shall be the peace of thy
children." If you learn God's word,
you will have a wonderful life filled
with His peace. This peace will
help you succeed in school and in
every part of your life.
Treat your moms, dads, and
teachers with respect and love.
They are there for you, and God is
always there for you too. Have a
great school year!


Five Kids
It was late one restless night; I couldn't get to sleep.


I started dwelling on five kids, a memory in my heart to keep.

Five kids I went to church with, five kids I used to know.

Circumstances took their lives; too soon they all went home.

A reckless drunken driver, a disease that had no cure.

Unseen accidents up ahead, left families hurting and torn.

Donna had six children, Wendy she had three.

Laura had one boy, these kids meant a lot to me.

Josh was then in high school, doing very well.

Adam was in his 20s, loving Gators, all could tell.

They all have met the Savior, through the preaching of God's Word.

And many times they practiced the things they had learned.

When they ascended into heaven, their weary souls set free.

Being absent from the body, to live eternally with thee.

Remembering these five kids, there is reason for great joy.

For memory is one gift of God, that death cannot destroy.

Thank You Lord

Kathy Wilson

Dedicated to the loving memory of: Donna Barfus Johnson, Wendy Ivey
Cummings, Laura Fraddosio Tate, Josh Shepherd and Adam Wilson.

Dear Classified Guys,
I need your help. I advertised my
old car in the newspaper for $3000,
'and continued to drive it until my
new car arrived. While going to
work, I accidentally spilled coffee
on my lap, swerved off the road
and crashed through some bush-
es. My car finally stopped when it
hit a Jesus statue on the front lawn
of someone's house. Aside from
having to pay for the bushes and a
Snew statue, I now have a car with
$1500 worth of damage. I don't
know what to do. Should I repair
the car and then sell it or just lower
the price and hope someone
buys it? Now that my new
car is here, I'm looking for .
ideas. i


Cash: Have you considered
that running into a religious statue might
be a sign from above? Maybe you're
meant to give up drinking coffee on the
way to work.
Carry: Whether you received a mes-
sage or not, your options really depend
on the damage to your car and your insur-
ance coverage. From your circunm-
stances, it seems you didn't have collision
insurance. In that case, repairs to the
property and your car come out of your
pocket.


.5-


Duane "Cash" Hoize
& Todd "Carry" Holze


W 7/31/05
@2005 The Classified Guys@


Cash: The next question is how bad
was the damage to your car?
Considering the high cost of repairs, a
few scratches and a dent from a statue
could easily rack up $1500 worth of
repairs.
Carry: If the damage is simply cos-
metic, try selling the vehicle without hav-
ing the repair work done. Believe it or
not, there are a lot of people who will buy
a good running car with a dent or two,
especially if you adjust the price accord-
ingly.
Cash: I just bought a car last week-
end that has a dent in the passenger-door.
It seems the owner's daughter sideswiped


a fencepost on her first driving lesson.
I'm just glad I bought it before she tried
parallel parking!
Carry: Since you already have your
new car and are probably looking for a
headache-free conclusion to your situa-
tion, try selling your car without invest-
ing a lot of money. Even if you had all
the repairs done, your car may never
regain its full $3000 value. Although it
depends on the extent of your damage,
the most economical solution is to accept
the loss and sell the car as it is.
Cash: And even if you're not a reli-
gious person, you may want to take your
new car to church next weekend!


Staying Focused
It's one thing to see an accident while
driving on the highway. It's another to
think that turning to look could cause you
to have a collision of your own. Believe
it or not, rubbernecking at accidents,
people or other distractions is a leading
cause of the 6.3 million accidents every
year. Driver fatigue, cell phones, other
passengers and adjusting the radio also
rank among the leading causes of crash-
es. So the next time you're driving, be
safe and keep your eyes on the road.

One Stop Shopping
"It's just a quick trip to the store. I
don't need to wear my seatbelt." It's a
common excuse that could prove fatal.
Wearing a seat belt is not only the law,
but also a safe habit we should all have.
Surprising, only 68% of all drivers wear
their seat belts. While most of us never
plan on a collision close to home, three
out of four accidents happen within 25
miles of home..And approximately 40%
occur at less than 40 mph., That sounds
just about the speed and distance of a
quick trip to the store.

Soaked
There's a small pond on the corner
of my road that cars can accidentally
slide into when the road is wet and
slippery.
Last rainstorm one driver took the
turn too fast and skidded his new car
right into the water. Fortunately, the
pond is only a few feet deep so he
escaped unharmed and the police
quickly arrived at the scene.
As the gentleman watched a tow
truck pull his car out of the pond, the
officer explained how he would have
to write a citation.
"What for?" asked the gentleman
still in his dripping suit and tie.
Jokingly the officer replied, "For not
having any boat registration."
