gunpoint

Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
A downtown Live Oak business was
robbed at gunpoint Aug. 3 by three men.
All three robbers escaped with the mon-
ey but Live Oak Police said no one was
injured in the robbery.
According to Live Oak Police Chief
Nolan McLeod, three men walked into
the Florida Cash Advance store at 106
North Ohio Avenue at about 5 p.m. One
of the men was armed with a handgun,
LOPD said. The suspects ordered the vic-
tim to give them the money and then left
the area in an unknown direction, accord-
ing to LOPD.

COMMENTARY


Tie your pants legs


and look fierce
I was watching the Discov-
- ^ & ery Channel the other night,
and some archaeologists were
maneuvering deep inside the
i ---- tiny crawl spaces of a pyramid.
I got the heebeejeebies just
imagining anyone crawling in
such tight spaces under mil-
, '.: ' ; lions of tons of rock.
..:The heebeejeebies came
upon me as I recalled that day
not long ago when I crawled
under mom's house to fix a
Speaking pipe. Curiously, there
'Dwain W n isn't as much room under there
Dwain Walden
as there was when I was a kid.
Much like my jeans, the space had shrunk. That's probably
the same kind of logic politicians use when they convert
their pre-conceived notions into mandates from the public.
Anyway, I had to shovel out some dirt to wiggle underneath.
Then I had to slide beneath the floor seals on my back, head
first.
There I was, struggling with a pipe wrench, sweat in my
eyes, saying to myself that houses should be built higher off
the ground when something licked my ear.
Now I am on my back with my feet pointed toward the
opening. The floor seals are right down on top of me. You
can't scoot very fast when you are in that position.
Something licked my ear again.
They. say that when you know that you are about to die,
your life flashes right before your eyes. I don't know if that's
true or not. I had visions of things I would like to do before
I part this good earth. Maybe my software needs jiggling.
It licked my ear again.
I also discovered that in this position, one's peripheral vi-
sion is not really good.
I finally concluded that I would have to attempt to turn
over on my side and confront this issue.
Now I don't know why I was gritting my teeth so hard
when I made my move. I guess I wanted whatever it was be-
hind me to see me looking fierce. They say when you hap-
pen upon a grizzly, don't let it know you are afraid. I would
suggest, though, to first tie your pants legs around your an-
kles - if you don't want the bear to see any evidence that
you are scared.
When I rolled over and looked up, I was nose to nose with
mom's puppy, Buffie. She was smiling at me. Then she
licked my face.
Little did I know that when I had gone back to the truck to
get my tools, she had come out of nowhere and had gone un-
der the house through my little trench. And because I had to
slip under there on my back and backwards, I was totally un-
aware of her presence.
On that first lick, I'm not sure what I thought it might have
been. One's mind goes wild when you are in tight spots like
this. I had run down a short list and ruled out most conven-
tional creatures that might do me harm. There just wasn't
enough room under there for them.
But what if there was some creature that time had forgot-
ten, and it had been living under mom's house all these
years? You see what I mean by one's imagination running
wild. Sitting in the porch swing, with the wind on my face
and 20 acres to turn around in, those kinds of thoughts nev-
er occur to me. This, I think, is a study in cause and effect.
When you can't move, you think more. Funny, I never put
myself in such a position to study algebra. Might have
worked.
Anyway, Buffie and I got the leaking pipe fixed. Actually,
she was a big help. She kept licking the sweat off my face.
Fat boys under a house sweat a lot.
Now back to those guys in that pyramid. I wondered what
kind of desert creatures might be in those crevices, aside
from the legends that there might also be age-old curses in-
volved in crawling around in some ancient fellow's tomb. Of
course when I'm sitting in the swing, with the wind on my
face and 20 acres on either side to turn around in, I don't be-
lieve in curses.
Now I've mentioned before that singer Jimmy Buffet says
there is a fine line between Saturday night and Sunday morn-
ing. So where is the line between archaeology and grave rob-
bing? I know where the line is between being slightly star-
tled and having the heebeejeebies.

OPINION

Making intelligent errors


We're not omniscient. That
means making errors is unavoid-
able. Understanding the nature of
errors is vital to our well-being.
Let's look at it.
There are two types of errors,
nicely named the type I error and
the type II error. The type I error
is when we reject a true hypothe-
sis when we should accept it. The
type II error is when we accept a
false hypothesis when we should


.1


.D- '2005 Creators Syndicate
I BY WALTER WILLIAMS


reject it. In decision-making, there's always a non-zero
probability of making one error or the other. That means
we're confronted with asking the question: Which error is
least costly? Let's apply this concept to a couple of is-
sues.
The stated reason for going to war with Iraq is that our
intelligence agencies surmised Saddam Hussein had, or
was near having, nuclear, biological and chemical
weapons of mass destruction.' Intelligence is never per-
fect. During World War II, our intelligence agencies
thought that Germany was close to having an atomic
bomb. That intelligence was later found to be flawed, but
it played an important role in the conduct of the war.
Since intelligence is always less than perfect, we're
forced to decide which error is least costly. Leading up to
our war with Iraq, the potential errors confronting us
were: Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction
and we incorrectly assumed he didn't. Or, he didn't have
weapons of mass destruction and we incorrectly assumed
he did. Both errors are costly, but which is more costly?
It's my guess that it would have been more costly for us.to
make the first error: Saddam Hussein had weapons of
mass destruction and we incorrectly assumed he didn't.
Another example of type I and type II errors hits closer
to home. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials,
in their drug approval process, can essentially make two.
errors. They can approve a drug that has unanticipated
dangerous side effects (type II). Or, they can disapprove,
or hold up approval of, a drug that's perfectly safe and ef-
fective (type I). In other words, they can err on the side of
under-caution or err on the side of over-caution. Which


error do FDA officials have the
greater incentive to make?
If a FDA official errs by ap-
proving a drug that has unantici-
pated, dangerous side effects, he
risks congressional hearings, dis-
grace and termination. Erring on
the side of under-caution pro-
duces visible, sick victims who
are represented by counsel and
whose plight is hyped by the me-


Erring on the side of over-caution is another matter. A
classic example was beta-blockers, which an American
Heart Association study said will "lengthen the lives of
people at risk of sudden death due to irregular heartbeats."
The beta-blockers in question were available in Europe in
1967, yet the FDA didn't approve them for use in the U.S.
until 1976. In 1979,.Dr. William Wardell, a professor of
pharmacology, toxicology and medicine at the University
of Rochester, estimated that a single beta-blocker, al-
prenolol, which had already been sold for three years in
Europe, but not approved for use in the U.S., could have.
saved more than 10,000 lives a year. The type I error,
erring on the side of over-caution, has little or no cost to
FDA officials. Grieving survivors of those 10,000 people
who unnecessarily died each year don't know why their
loved one died, and surely they don't connect the death to
FDA over-caution. For FDA officials, these are the best
kind of victims - invisible ones. When an FDA official
holds a press conference to announce its approval of a
new life-saving drug, I'd like to see just one reporter ask:
How many lives would have been saved had the FDA not
delayed the drug's approval?
The bottom line is, we humans are not perfect. We will
inake errors. Rationality requires that we recognize and
weigh the cost of one error against the other.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR


Dear Editor:
I would like to publicly thank Rhonda Sherrod, administra-
tor of Shands at Live Oak, for the expert and attentive care I
received during a recent visit to the emergency department.
All persons with whom I had contact, in both the emergency
department and radiology, were professional, competent and
friendly. The medical care provided by Dr. Erin Buzzella and
nursing care provided by the emergency department nurses
could not have been better.


As residents of Live Oak and Suwannee County, we are
very fortunate to have access to the high level of medical,
nursing and supportive care provided by professionals who
staff our hospital. I do not believe that my care for this;injury
could have been better at any other hospital than that re-
ceived at Shands at Live Oak. Ms. Sherrod, thank you and
your staff for the quality services that you provide to our
community.

for us to ensure the survival of our families,
our loved ones and ourselves."

James Financial Inc. reports third quarter results


od increased to $1,475,647,000
from $1,334,547,000 the previ-
ous year. Diluted earnings per
share were $1.41 versus $1.30
for last year's comparable peri-

"Reflecting vibrant business
activity across the firm, gross
revenues and net revenues in
our third fiscal quarter in-
creased 17 percent and 12 per-
cent, respectively, over last
year's comparable quarter,"
stated Chairman, and CEO
Thomas A. James.
"Although the nine percent
increase in net income was re-


spectable, net additions to legal

"While litigation costs asso-

number of complaints," James
said. "An improved investment
climate, as well as recruiting
success in our brokerage sub-
sidiaries, augurs well for the fi-
nal- quarter. We have participat-

Also avoid salt tablets un-

Eat small amounts and
eat more often. Avoid high-
protein foods, which in-

Slow down. Avoid stren-
uous activity outside. If you
must do strenuous activi-
ties, do it during the coolest
part of the day, which is
usually in the morning be-
tween 4 and 7 a.m.
Stay indoors when possi-
ble. If air-conditioning is
not available, stay on the

shine. Remember electric
fans do not cool, they sim-

Hunt continues

for second

robbery

suspect

Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter
Police are still looking for
a second suspect in a robbery
of the Lake City Howard
Johnson's on July 18.
Suwannee County Sheriff
Tony Cameron said so far the
other suspect hasn't been ap-
prehended but the search
continues.
The two men fled the scene
of the robbery and led police
on a chase. They wound up
in Wellborn, crashing their
vehicle in a woman's yard
and fled on foot into the
woods.
Sheriff Cameron respond-
ed to the scene immediately
where Tyre Tyrone Taylor,
25, CR 250, Wellborn, was
eventually apprehended after
the area was cordoned off
and tracking dogs were
brought in from Columbia
County Sheriffs Office and
Hamilton Correctional Insti-
tute. Taylor lives in the area
where the crash happened.
The two men allegedly.
robbed the Howard Johnson's
Motel with a gun. After-
wards, they put,the clerk into
a bathroom and fled the area.
A witness outside the motel
gave police a description of
the vehicle, which led police
to two suspects and a chase
from Columbia County into
Suwannee County.
Taylor, who Sheriff
Cameron said left his ID in
the car, was jailed in the Co-
lumbia County Jail on
charges of robbery, fleeing
and attempting to elude a law
enforcement officer, reckless
driving and driving with a
suspended driver's license.

quately communicated to the public." And, Maxwell
added, he will recommend the County Commission
reinstate the previous year's fire assessments when
the board meets next Tuesday, Aug. 16, at 5:15 p.m.
at the Suwannee High School Auditorium for a pub-
lic hearing on the matter.
Maxwell said " the new fire assessment pro-
posal has not been adequately communicated to
the public, therefore he will recommend that the
board of County Commission reinstate the previ-
ous year's assessment."
Maxwell said he will also recommend that "the
board only consider assessments for fire and
household garbage collection at the Aug. 16 pub-
lic hearing. Those fees will be lower than last
year's assessments."
Maxwell indicated the proposed ordinance is
too confusing and there's too much the board and
the public does not understand about its workings.
The board is considering putting into action a
new fire and solid waste assessment that lowers
the solid waste assessment from $115 per house-
hold to $114.38 and the fire assessment from $50
to $45.91 on dwellings. A public hearing on the
matter is set for Aug. 16 to'establish those rates.
The ordinance would additionally assess open
land for the first time in the history of the county.
While open land has the most fire calls each year,
those who own dwellings/and or commercial fa-
cilities are the only ones who have paid for the fire
service. Property owners who did not own a
dwelling in Suwannee County paid nothing.
The board has discussed these issues for many
years and eventually began to see there may be an

inequity in this system. The board hired Florida
law firm Nabors, Giblin and Nickerson to write a
legal ordinance based upon their findings after
studying the.county's legal records. That report
was recently presented to the board.
Nabors, Giblin and Nickerson said at the Aug. 2
meeting that chicken houses and outbuildings
such as storage units and such will be taxed addi-
tionally at 9 cents per square foot ONLY if they
are placed in a "feature" file in county records.
Suwannee County Coordinator Johnny Wooley
said Tuesday "those type buildings are never in
the feature file. He said the ordinance has already
been passed by the commission, but the public
hearing was called to determine the amount of the
assessments. At the meeting, Wooley said the
Commission can lower the assessments, but not
raise them, and can delete any of the assessments
they choose. However, Wooley said if the board
does not approve a fire and solid waste assess-
ment, there will be no non-advalorem money to
fund the two in the coming fiscal year since it
would take another year to restart the ordinance
process. Wooley said the only way the solid waste
and fire services could be funded at that point
would be to reduce other county operating bud-
gets.
According to the amended ordinance that will
be considered at the hearing, a cap will be put on
the number of units that can be taxed of property
owners. "It is the board's intent to only.charge
those buildings located on assessed property that
are designated as the primary features on the tax
parcel. Accordingly, outbuildings, such as small
sheds, detached garages and agriculture buildings
that are located on a tax parcel with another pri-

mary use building and that are not considered the
primary property. feature, SHALL NOT be as-
sessed."
In paragraph C, Page 4 of the proposed amend-
ed ordinance, it reads "Notwithstanding the fore-
going, any tax parcel that contains in excess of the
maximum number of assessable units, 33.33 units,
shall be assigned a total of 33.33 units in calculat-
ing the fire protection assessment applicable to
that tax parcel." This would apply to buildings
such as motels, hotels and camping facilities.
The ordinance says no fire assessment will be
imposed upon a building located on a parcel of in-
stitutional property exempt from taxation under
Florida law.
The ordinance approves a fire assessment being
levied against any property where a building per-
mit is required after the assessment is approved.
The following property use categories are includ-
ed in the proposed ordinance:
Residential (per dwelling unit) ..........$45.91
Non-residential (per square foot up to 40,000) .$0.09
Transient Occupancy (per unit) ........ .$164.82
Land
Land (under 160 acres) per parcel ........ $14.63
Land (more than 160 acres) per parcel ... $0.11
Before the Aug. 16 public hearing at SHS Audito-
rium at 5:15 p.m. citizens may call the Suwannee
County office at 364-3400 to discuss the proposed
ordinance, clarify any issues and check to see if your
: property is properly listed.on the tax records. Coun-
ty employees are available daily to assist you with

GFWC Woman'


Club of Live Oak


holds new member orientation


On April 22, the GFWC
Woman s Club of Live Oak
conducted an orientation
for new members. A buffet
brunch of fresh fruit, break-
fast casserole, croissants,
jams and butter, fruit
punch, coffee and tea was
served to the women prior
to the presentation.
Doris Van Jahnke told the
women some interesting
facts about the history of
the General Federation of
Woman s Clubs (GFWC).
It was founded in 1890 and
is one of the world s oldest
nonpartisan, nondenomina-
tional women s volunteer
service organizations. The
GFWC traces its roots back
to Jane Cunningham Croly,
an accomplished New York
newspaperwoman, who
wrote under the pen name
of Jenny June. She and oth-
er women were denied ad-
mittance to a banquet hon-
oring Charles Dickens in
1868 at the all-male New
York Press Club simply be-
cause they were women.
She decided to organize a
club for women only.
The GFWC motto is Uni-
ty in Diversity because
members try to enrich each
other by varied experi-
ences.
GFWC was an important
force in founding Ameri-
ca s first national parks
with each state establishing
a park within their state.
By 1933 GFWC had
founded 75 percent of
America s public libraries,
as well as pioneered the
idea of bookmobiles.
Over the years GFWC
had programs for several
safety measures including
campaigns for seatbelts in
all cars, streetlights on

HEALTH BRIEF


'Super glue' seals bypass
grafts
Got a broken teacup, an
art project, or a leaky blood,
vessel? Super glue it.
Surgeons at Baylor Col-
lege of Medicine in Hous-
ton are studying whether a
liquid sealant, similar to
common household super
glue, forms a tight seal
around blood vessels used
in vascular graft surgery.


When you sew blood
vessels together for a graft,
they sometimes leak, said
Dr. Alan Lumsden, chief of
the vascular surgery section
of the Michael E. DeBakey
Department of Surgery and
principal investigator for
the clinical trial. In this tri-
al, we will seal that leak, or
basically super glue it to-
gether.
Doctors currently use the


glue to close skin wounds
instead of using sutures,
and are now studying it for
vascular grafts. The sealant,
manufactured by Closure
Medical Corporation, is de-
signed to provide a strong
physical seal that 'remains
in place longer than the
graft takes to heal naturally.
Over time, the seal will
break down into smaller ab-
sorbable fragments.

Suwannee's





First School



uilt in 1868


The evolution of the Suwannee
County school systems has been a long
and complex process.
The first school house mentioned in
Live Oak was in the building built by
John Parshley around 1868 which was
built for a Baptist Church and school
house.

�"'Mrs. W. B. Parshley wrote in her
history of Live Oak that "until 1887
there was no public school building.
Professor Jones and others taught
school in hired houses, at times in the
Methodist or Baptist Churches, and
received a certain sum from the
county. This was supplemented by
gifts from the patrons. In 1887 Mrs.
John Parshley gave the present
,location of the school and the first
building was erected. For a time the
children had to carry the drinking
water from the Courthouse cistern to
the school and this was a little outing
much sought for in spite of the labor
involved. Finally Major Porter bored a
well and then the children carried
.water from that whenever the pump
was in working order... "

This first school building consisted of
one large room upstairs and two
downstairs. There were three teachers
and the principal.

Before this, however, an article
relates to school irr one of the homes or
churches as written about by the late
Chapman H. Tedder who noted "The
early school in the city was about 25


strong, occupied by one room and one
teacher and lasted about three months.
Many of the pupils walked two, three,
or four miles to and from school to their
homes. A ride on a wagon on a dusty
road was a lucky event, and the teacher
of these days was generally of a
nervous temperament, and on arriving
at the school room had to thrash at
least one boy to start the day's
business right off... but that was the
beginning of the school system.
It was in. 1869 that the Florida
Legislature created a State Depart-
ment of Education with county school
boards and county superintendents
authorized. The first official meeting of
the Suwannee County School Board
took place on July 9, 1869 with John G.
White, chairman, Thomas A. Cariuth
and John W. Brock as members.

The board met only briefly on that
day to organize and it was noted that
the first superintendent, John I.
Taylor, began his duties.

Six days later the board met again
and set the salary of the
superintendent at $5 a day for services
rendered and expenses included.

Six teachers were approved at $40
per month for three months. The
budget showed $720 for teachers, $200
for books and the superintendent's

salary. Taxes were assessed at
one-fourth of a cent on the assessed

valuations. Two schools were listed at
Wellborn and Live Oak and
arrangements were made to take into
the system some private schools in the
county and to organize two black
schools.

By January 1870 there were seven
schools listed as applying to come into

the system listed as New Hop.,
Houston, Telford,
Macedonia. Live Oak,
with Pine Grove not acted
upon.

Five years later the county school
system was growing with 26 schools
listed.. These were: Lake Butler,
Freedman Forest, Mt. Pleasant,
Providence, Live Oak,
Calvary, Rosemary, Mt. Zion,
New Hope, Clayland, Little River,

Macedonia, Magnolia Springs, Well-
born, Rocky Cut, Houston, Pine Grove,


Freedman; Suw.innee Sprnngs and
Rocky Sink.

Each little community school was
geared to fit the needs of that
community. Not all of the schools in the
county, for example had the same
months for their terms, depending
upon the tr..t-s of the area.
The number of one teacher schools
grew some after the listing made above
in the county. It was not until
comparatively recent years, however,
that they vanished from the scene.


This structure housed the first public school
in Live Oak until after the turn of the century.
The original part of the building was a three
room structure which was constructed in 1889


and a large addition added in the last part of the
century, This building served the school system
in Live Oak until 1917.

"Sawanny River" on trading expedi-
tions.
The United States purchased Florida
from Spain in 1821 and Gen. Andrew
Jackson was appointed military
governor with steps taken to set up a
government. Two .counties were
formed with the Suwannee River as
the dividing line. Escambia in the west
and St. Johns in the east.
The following year, on Aug. 12,
Duval County was formed which
included all of present Suwannee
County, taking in the lands between
the St. Johns and Suwannee
Rivers-with the county seat at Cowford
(Jacksonville).
Increasing trouble with the Seminole
Indians in Florida cause the Army


concern over ane poor communications
between the capital at Tallahassee with
Pensacola and St. Augustine. This
concern resulted in a bill passed by
Congress to build a milyiry road
connecting the three cities on the route
of the Old Spanish Trail.
Ruben Charles knew where the trail
crossed the Suwannee River; as it was
now known, and must have reasoned
that here would be a fine place for a
trading post and ferry. Consequently
he was granted a charter to operate a
.ferry in 1824 at this place, which is now
known as Charles Springs and located
some five miles south of Dowling Park.
He was, with his family, the first
permanent white settler in the area of
Suwannee County.

A: That question is one"{fhat`h-ag
become more widespread in this time of
AIDS. But dentists are extremely
cautious in their practices to prevent
any sort of possible infection. The
Center for Disease Control has
numerous guidelines for the sterilization
of tools and flushing of waterlines
between patients. Bear in mind that
much of the dentist's equipment
sterilization machinery and procedure
may be out of patients' sight. Our
immune systems routinely protect us
from the garden-variety microbes we
encounter. However, if you have an
immune system that's been
compromised by age, smoking, heavy
drinking or by being a cancer or
transplant patient, be sure to inform
your dentist, just as you should inform
him of any other medical condition. The
best way to establish and maintain a
productive relationship is to ask your
dentist any questions that come to
mind, whether that question is about
infection control or a procedure.

At the time, Stovall stated this
area of the state had more tro-

Stovall's buck may be the
headliner of a very successful

there have been many others
who have shared special and
unique experiences throughout
the past eight years the pro-
gram has been in place.
Special-opportunity hunts
offer hunters vast areas, abun-

ty big thunderstorm to hit the

and flashed lots of light-
ning. The skies cleared
though before the tourna-
ment started. There were
teams that came from Mary-
land, Florida, Georgia, North
Carolina, South Carolina,
Texas and Kentucky to test
their catfishing skills for the
tournament. It seemed like
e eryone' caughtt ft:fishl but
some just couldn't get any
big ones to bite. Most of the
fisherman said they had to
pretty well keep check on
their catches to keep them
alive due to the scorching
heat. Nevertheless, teams
come in with some very nice
stringers.

at 114.90 lbs and they won
$1200.00.

Boatright attends summer leadership conference

Alumni scholarship awarded


John-Walt Boatright of the
Suwannee Middle FFA Chapter
Attended the 2005 Washington
Leadership Conference (WLC)
on July 19-24, 2005 in the na-
tion s capital. The conference
is an activity of the National
FFA Organization in coopera-
tion with the U.S. Department
of Education.
The weeklong program helps
FFA members build their lead-
ership skills while preparing
for roles in their chapters, com-
munities and future careers.
- They attend workshop sessions
on persuasive communication,
character leadership,building
relationships and participate in
"discussions on citizenship.
Participants attending the con-
ference are sponsored in part
by the National FFA Alumni
Association.
We live in an increasingly
competitive world, says Dr.
Larry Case, National FFA Ad-
visor and Coordinator, Agricul-
tural and Rural Education with
the U.S. Department of Educa-
tion. Tomorrow s leaders
must develop skills in these ar-
eas to effectively compete.
Every student leaves WLC
with an advantage, because it
gives those young people cut-
ting-edge leadership skills and
valuable insight for productive
citizenship.
The National FFA Organiza-


tion coordinates WLC, which
attracts participants from
across the country. This sum-
mer, more than 2,300 FFA
members will attend one of the
conference s six weeklong ses-
sions.
Students also increase their
understanding of the nation s
heritage with visits to Mount
Vernon, Arlington National
Cemetery, the Jefferson, Lin-
coln, and Roosevelt Memorials
and other historic sites in
Washington, D.C.
Some highlights of the week
included a visit with Congress-
man Allen Boyd. Boatright
also participated in a communi-
ty service project that harvested
and loaded over 40,000 pounds
of vegetables for the homeless
and food banks in the surround-
ing areas.
FFA is a national youth orga-
nization of 476,732 student
members preparing for leader-
ship and careers in the science,
business and technology of
agriculture with 7,223 local
chapters in all 50 states, Puerto
Rico and the Virgin Islands.
FFA strives to make a positive
difference in the lives of stu-
dents by developing their po-
tential for premier leadership,
personal growth, and career
success through agricultural
education. Visit www.ffa.org
for more information.

USDA announces new, streamlined


Loan Deficiency Payment Application


Florida Farm Service
Agency State Executive Direc-
tor, Kevin Kelley announces a
new three-page form to make
applying for loan deficiency
payments (LDP's) easier. The
new form CCC-633EZ, Loan
Deficiency Payment Agree-
ment and Request, is available
today to producers and County
FSA Offices.
The new CCC-633EZ incor-
porates field direct and basic
LDP requests in to a single
three-page application form.
The first page of the form indi-
cates the producer's intention
to receive an LDP. This form
must be completed annually.
Page 1 of the form only needs
to be filed out in one County
Office, for producers who farm
in two or more counties. The
second page of the form is used
to request a payment. LDP's
must be filed before beneficial
interest is lost in the commodi-
ty. This form is effective for the
2005 and subsequent crop
years. The form covers all
quantities the producer has


beneficial interest in on the
date page one is completed and
received in the County FSA
Office. CCC-633EZ form does
not negate the producer's abili-
ty to obtain a marketing assis-
tance loan (MAL).
Producer's must:
Complete and submit Page
one of the CCC-633EZ to the
local County FSA Office be-
fore the loss of the beneficial
interest,
File Page two of the CCC-
633EZ by crop, to the local
County FSA Office, by the fi-
nal loan availability date for the
applicable crop, to receive pay-
ment.
For the 2005 crop year
ONLY, FSA will honor any
CCC-709's, Direct Loan Defi-
ciency Payment, and CCC-633
LDP, Loan Deficiency Pay-
ment Certification and Appli-
cation, forms filed before the
availability of CCC-633EZ.
Beginning with the 2006 crop
year, the CCC-633EZ and
eLDP requests will be the only
methods by which to obtain


LDP benefits.
The CCC-633EZ may be
filed in person, by mail, fax or
through eForms. The CCC-
633EZ will be available in the
near future on the following

Small forest landowners workshop


Helping small forest
landowners is the focus of an
upcoming workshop for
landowners in Suwannee,
Hamilton and Columbia
Counties. "Growing trees is. a
very solid enterprise with ex-
cellent investment potential
on your land," says Suwannee
County Forester Brian Cob-


ble. "However, many
landowners are not realizing
the full benefit from their
land. As a result, thousands of
acres are growing up in under-
brush that has little or no val-
ue."
Another issue concerning
small landowners is estate
planning. FAMU Extension


Service Small Farm Manage-
ment Specialist Phillip Petway
said it is very important for
landowners to leave a written
will. Unfortunately, many do
not, resulting in "heir proper-
ty" that complicates manage-
ment for those inheriting the
land. "About 50 percent of the
people who die each year do

not leave a written will. This
creates tremendous problems,
as forest ownership is split
among many people who of-
ten cannot agree on what to
do." Petway said this is partic-
ularly important for minority
landowner, and that solutions
to this problem will be ad-
dressed in the workshop.

Female landowners also
face special problems. Be-
cause females traditionally
outlive their spouses, and hus-
bands have traditionally been
more active in managing their
forestland, many widows are
faced with significant deci-
sions when a spouse passes
away. Incorrect decisions can
erase years of hard work and
planning, resulting in the
landowner getting perhaps
half of the value of the timber.
The workshop will identify
common problems faced by
many landowners, including
minorities and females, and
suggest possible solutions.
Topics will include forest
ownership issues, environ-
mental issues, and the eco-
nomics of forestry. A ques-
tion-and-answer session will


occur at the end of the work-
shop. Speakers will include a
tree farmer, an attorney and
consulting foresters.
The Small Forest Landown-
er Workshop is scheduled for
Aug. 25, from 6-8:30 p.m.,
sign-in and registration is
from 5:30-6 p.m. Space is
limited to 80 landowners, who

Some drugs can cause dizziness and falls
A fall may damage more than a person's pride. We may know some-one
who's been injured, disabled or even killed by a fall. As one ages, time
takes its toll on the organs and systems in our bodies. Age-related
conditions that may affect our balance include diabetes, hardening of the
arteries (atherosclerosis), memory loss and confusion (dementia),
Parkinson's disease, stroke and numerous conditions affecting the ner-
vous system and thyroid. Eye diseases such as glaucoma and cataracts,
and joint diseases such as arthritis may severely restrict mobility. Since
osteoporosis weakens bones, it increases the risk of serious injuries from
a fall, and may even cause a fall if the bones are so thin that one breaks
spontaneously.
Many medications have side effects that can affect brain function and
lead to dizziness or lightheadedness. Examples include some medi-
cations for high blood pressure, heart disease, allergy, insomnia, excess
stomach acid and depression. Taking multiple medications; or combin-ing
prescription drugs with alcohol, or with over-the-counter antihista-mines,
sleeping medications, painkillers or cough suppressants; magni-fies the
risk. Pharmacists can help explain the medications that tend to carry the
most risk. 188941-F

FWC uses

cutting-edge

technology in

Florida bear

road-kill

impact study


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has released the results
of an assessment of road im-
pacts using genetic analysis of
nearly 5,500 bear hair samples
snared from barbed wire amid
Florida's six major bear popula-
tions. FWC conducted the study
for the Florida Department of
Transportation to learn more
about the impacts of roads and
bear road kills on bear popula-
tions in the study areas.
While the study wasn't done
in Suwannee County, Suwannee
County has had sightings of
bears, including one several
years ago where a mother bear
and her cub were sighted around
town for several days and then
found in a tree across the street
from the Suwannee Democrat.
They were severely dehydrated,
but were safely extracted and re-
turned to Taylor County where
it is believed their habitat is.
The study examined six bear
populations (Apalachicola,
Ocala, Osceola, Big Cypress,
Eglin, and St. Johns River) from
February 2001 to June 2005.
Scientists set up 7,000 snare
sites made of barbed wire
strands encircling a lure. Barbs
snared clumps of hair from
bears as they climbed through
the wires to get to the lure.
Biologists then sent the hair
samples to an outside lab where
state-of-the-art genetic tech-
niques were used to determine
the sex of the bear and a DNA
profile. They used these data in
population models to generate
population estimates and to cal-
culate impact of road kills on
bear populations.

The Wildlife Foundation of
Florida provided funding for
the genetic analysis component
of the study.
"The study showed that, on
average, road-kill mortality
rates for Florida black bear
populations are similar to those
for American black bears in
other eastern states," Tim
Breault, director of the FWC's
Division of Habitat and Species
Conservation, said. "The prin-
cipal conclusion of this study is
that while road-related mortali-
ty impacts the status of bear
populations, the current level of
road mortality appears to be
sustainable, and does not pose
an immediate threat to the sta-
tus of the population segments
studied."
Breault said similar mortality
rates don't necessarily mean
they have similar impacts on
bear populations, however.
Breault said the study enabled
FWC scientists to use cutting-
edge technology to generate the
best population assessment to
date for bears in these areas.
"It will be useful in assessing
the magnitude of the threat to
populations posed by motor ve-
hicles," he said. "The study
shows that, on average, road
kills do not pose a threat to
Florida's bear populations,
based on current population es-
timates. However, if habitat de-
creases and new roads lead to
increases in mortality rates, we
would need to re-evaluate these
conclusions."
The Florida black bear is on
the state's list of imperiled
species as threatened. It is not
listed on the federal endangered
or threatened species lists.
"The Florida black bear, a
unique sub-species that occurs


primarily in Florida, once was
widely distributed throughout
Florida. Bears require large
home ranges and need ample
habitat to ensure a healthy pop-
ulation. Several factors, such as
urban development and an in-
crease in human population,
have reduced bear habitat. The
bears that once roamed across
the entire state have been frag-
mented into isolated sub-popu-
lations," Breault said.
In Florida, the last bear hunt
was conducted in 1993. The
season was closed in 1994, and
FWC staff is not recommending
resumption.
This study focused on road
kills and did not directly address
issues such as nuisance bears
and bear hunting, Breault said.
"There is a wide range of opin-


ions regarding bear conserva-
tion. To gain a better under-
standing of public attitudes,
opinions, and perceptions re-
garding bears and bear manage-
ment, the FWC will begin a sur-
vey in Florida later this year."

ports.htm. For more informa-
tion about the Florida Black
Bear and living in bear country,

The estimated populations for
each studied area are:
Apalachicola: 438 - 695 bears
Big Cypress: 516 -878 bears'

Ocala: 729 -1,056 bears

Chickenpox vaccine may

be a good idea for many
It used to be that getting chickenpox was just a childhood rite of passage. The
disease is quite common in childhood with most cases occurring in children
before the age of 15. While chickenpox is usually a mild illness that causes itchy
sores that often clear up on their own after a few days, it can trigger problems
like brain swelling, pneumonia and skin infections, on, rare occasions. Each case.
of chickenpox is unique, meaning it could be more severe for some and less so
for others. The good news is, once you get chickenpox, it's unlikely you'll catch
it again.
WHAT IS
CHICKENPOX?
Chickenpox causes
very contagious sores
that resemble water
blisters that 'develop
anywhere on the body -
even in the mouth or
eyes. It can easily be
spread from one person
to another through
direct contact with a
blister or the liquid
from a blister.
Chickenpox can also be
acquired if a person
comes in contact with
the saliva of an infected
individual. In addition,
it can be spread through ...
the air from someone
who is coughing or . .:
sneezing. That's why it ,, .
is important for those . 'i , bu t
who have a case of the .te g
chickenpox to stay . i
home from school, ..,
daycare or work. In Chickenpox can now be prevented by the varicella vaccine.
addition, parents of
children suffering from chickenpox will have to stay home to care for their sick
children. A relatively minor illness has the potential to impact the family greatly
if the disease stretches on for its typical four- to five-day duration.
Chickenpox is an itchy nuisance. However, scratching or picking at blisters can
lead to scarring or infection. Calamine lotion can help relieve the itch, but the
only way to make the blisters go away is to' let the outbreak run its course.
ILLNESS PREVENTION
Doctors now have a weapon in their arsenal against chickenpox: the varicella
vaccine. The vaccine is named for the varicella-zoster virus that causes the
disease. More than 20 states have passed requirements that children entering
child care and school must have a history of chickenpox, serological (blood)
evidence of immunity or evidence of receiving chickenpox vaccine. Many other
states are in the process of enacting such requirements.
Children typically receive the vaccination between the ages of 12 to 18
months. Adults who work with children (such as teachers, day-care workers, or
those in health care), should also obtain the shot as a preventative measure if
they have not yet had chickenpox.
POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS
The vaccine is about 90 percent effective against chickenpox outbreaks, says
the American Academy of Pediatrics. However, some people will get a very mild
case of chickenpox one or two weeks after they get the vaccine. They will most
likely have fewer than 50 blisters, which can be treated with calamine lotion. As
with any vaccine, there may be some redness, swelling or pain at the place
where the needle enters the arm or leg.
There are some people who should not get the varicella vaccine. These include
pregnant women who could pass on the disease to their unborn children, those
with a compromised immune system, or those receiving high doses of steroids
for another problem.
If you have any questions or concerns about the varicella vaccine, consult your
family physician. You can also learn more about it at www.cdc.org.

Dear Classified Guys,
While planning my wedding, I quickly
learned that the guest list wasn't
about whom I wanted to invite. It was
more about my mom shaking the old
family tree and seeing who fell out.
When she asked me to invite her
long-lost rich cousins, I expected the
mystery relatives would at least
bring a nice gift. However, when we
unwrapped the gifts, we found a
shocker. Their gift was a beautiful
crystal punch bowl, but when 1
turned it over, I found a bright green
$5 price tag that was obviously from
a yard sale. We paid $125 per plate,
and she gave me a $5 punch bowl.
My husband said I should let
it go, but don't you guys --,
think spending $5 on a
wedding gift from a yard
sale is ridiculous?

Cash: Of course spending $5 on a
crystal punch bowl is ridiculous. Your
relatives could have at least haggled it
down to $3!
Carry: Although I can understand
your frustration with your new-found
relatives, it seems you had the wrong
expectations. Regardless of whom your
Mom shook out of the family tree, you
should have been delighted that they


attended your wedding. Anticipating an
expensive gift in return was an error on
your part.
Cash: Now I have to agree that leav-
ing the price sticker on the punch bowl
was a major oversight and one that might
be offensive.
Carry: It seems the problem was not
the fact that your relatives purchased the
gift at a yard sale, but that they actually
got caught. By your own admission, the
crystal bowl was a beautiful gift.
Cash: It's difficult to say whether eti-
quette would discourage giving a wed-
ding gift from a yard sale. There are
many who would say that if the bowl


^F


@2005 The Classified Guys�


was still new and in the original box, the
gift is perfectly fine. That is, if the price
sticker is first removed.
Carry: Personally, I wouldn't know
what to use a crystal punch bowl for
unless it's to change the oil in my car.
Yet other people may find it to be the
perfect wedding gift.
Cash: As a newlywed, you may want
to start considering your husband's
advice and let it go. Send your relatives
a nice thank you card for attending the
wedding and bringing a gift.
Carry: Besides, if it's like many wed-
ding gifts, you'll try selling it at your
next yard sale.


THE

CLUSSnmED

Wrapped Up
How much did you spend on the last
wedding gift you bought? Although the
relation of the bride or groom does play a
role in many people's decision, the aver-
age attendee spends $85 on a wedding
present according to The Association of
Bridal Consultants. To top off the occa-
sion, the association claims that a wed-
ding couples average 100 gifts from the
ceremony. Aside from hours of unwrap-
ping, that makes for a lot of handwritten
thank you cards.

Gift Giver
When is it okay to regift? Some may
respond, "Never!", but according to a
survey commissioned by ebay, 64% of
people admit to regifting, or secretly giv-
ing away unwanted gifts to others. That
means most are not alone in the process.
To avoid any embarrassment, it's advis-
able to make sure the item is actually
new and not from a company that went
out of business. If the idea of regifting
makes you uncomfortable, you can save
all those items for your next yard sale.

Keep Giving
I find all sorts of items at yard
sales, sometimes brand new and
never used.
At the last sale, I came across a
beautiful sterling silver picture frame
and thought it would be perfect for
an upcoming wedding I had to
attend.
When I went to pay for it, the
woman explained that it has been
passed around many times.
"Someone regifted it to me at my
wedding," she said.
"That's amazing," I replied. "But
how did you know?"
She laughed as she replied, "They
Forgot to change the names on the
Gift tag."

t started as a morning cup of joe. However,
Over time America's love affair with coffee
has moved beyond the mug to inspire sever-
al coffee-flavored products such as ice
cream, sauces and spirits.
SIn fact, Chef Paul Vandewoude of the Miette
Culinary Studio in New York credits this coffee
trend with inspiring a variety of new cooking
recipes featuring coffee-based products.
"Chefs love to try new and different flavors
and ingredients in everyday recipes. So when
additional coffee-based products became avail-
able, the culinary world jumped on the opportu-
nity to experiment," said Vandewoude. "From
appetizers to desserts, more coffee-inspired
recipes are popping up on menus across the
country. Recently, I created a barbeque sauce
that I think many coffee lovers would enjoy."
Many noted chefs, like Vandewoude, use
coffee
to put a new twist on traditional recipe fa-
'. ,_r ' .

coffee finish

tional ingre-
dients, such
as vinegar,

horseradish.
According to
Vande-
woude, it
tempers the
Recipe with a
familiar aro-
ma, flavor
and color.
Vandewoude
satisfies his
sweet tooth
by baking a
coffee-in-
spired
chocolate
molten cake.
Along with chefs, the latest group to jump
on hoard the coffee trend is bartenders. Like
their culinary counterparts, they too have creat-
ed a wide range of coffee- Inrpired recipes. From
mixed drinks to martinis to modern-day Man-
hnttans, these drinks are appropriate for all oc-
casiulls.
In fact, the mi\ability and versatility of Star-
bicks Coflee Liqueur allow bartenders to com-

While chefs and bartenders may create the
recipes that lead this trend, coffee lovers pan try
all these recipes in the comfort of their own
homes. For more recipes featuring the ultimate
cocktails for Starbucks coffee lovers, visit

Liqueur is not available in Starbucks stores,
rather where fine spirits are sold.
