Gas prices soar


Highest in history

Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter
Two things in life are
certain heat rises and so
do gas prices.
Citgo is currently
among the least expensive
gas in Live Oak at $2.56
for unleaded, $2.64 for
mid gradb and $2.74 for
premium.. Currently, Texa-
co is among the most expensive at
$2.73 for unleaded, $2.91 for pow-


er supreme and $2.72 for diesel.
Wal-Mart, Jiffy and BP are among
those that fall in
the middle.
At the pump
Monday, a cou-
ple of people
expressed their
concerns. One
man said while

gas mileage, it

The second drowning within
10 days at Telford Spring has tak-
en the life of a 17-year-old Live
Oak resident.


Ricardo Gamino Biltrain, 1405
Duval St., NE, drowned after
stepping into the rain-swollen
spring. Biltrain was at the spring
with family members when the
accidental drowning occurred,
according to the Suwannee
County Sheriffs Office.


Biltrain was a recent immi-
grant from Mexico and was liv-

Oak, according to the Sheriffs
Office. Some family members

98.1 FM recognized for 50

years of weather coverage

Vanessa Fultz -W .


Democrat Reporter
WQHL (98.1 FM) was recognized
by the National Weather Service for
providing 50 years of weather cov-
erage Aug. 9.
Former station owner Norm
Protsman, who bought the station in
1949, approached the weather ser-
vice about providing weather cover-
age in 1955.
"We called up the weather bureau
and asked if we could become their
weather reporting station in this
area," Protsman said. "They said
yes. You'll need to have our equip-
ment, and we'll bring it out."
Protsman said the equipment to
record the temperature and rainfall
is completely different now.
The station started out measuring
the temperature through a small
square box standing on metal legs
that was placed in the yard in front
of the station. The box had two mer-
cury thermometers, one to measure
the high temperature and one to
measure the low temperature. The
weather reporter had to go outside
and record the readings and spin the
thermometers to reset them.

The spring is located on pri-

have been made over the years
to stop the public from enter-
ing the property to no avail ac-
cording to officers.
According to a narrative
by Suwannee County Deputy
David Poole who investigat-
ed the drowning, he was sent
to the scene by a phone call
to 911 from a cell phone
caller regarding the drown-
ing at about 4:05 p.m. Aug.
14. By that time Deputy
Scott Senea was already on
the scene, along with Florida
Wildlife Commission offi-
cers. Witnesses at the scene
told Poole that Biltrain had
been drinking beer and
,standing in waist deep water
where the spring meets the
'Suwannee River. The wit-
nesses also said they thought
Biltrain could not swim and
had been drinking all after-
noon. The witnesses told
Poole that Biltrain apparent-
ly stepped forward into deep

water, went under and never
came back to the surface.
Because of recent heavy
rains, the river is flooded and
has flooded the usually clear
spring, making it dark as the
river, Poole said. Due to the
darkness of the water, no one
could see Biltrain when he
stepped into the deep water,
Poole said.
Florida Wildlife Commis-
sion officers Matt Tyre, Rod-
ney Boone, Dennis Sharpe
and Dwain Mobley were
dragging the river in search
of Biltrain when Poole ar-
rived and quickly recovered
the body.

RECOGNITION FOR WEATHER COVERAGE: National Weather Service Data Acquisition Program Manager Michael McAllister, le

Continued From Page 1A

Data Acquisition Program
Manager for the National
Weather Service Michael
McAllister said the station
now records the temperature
by a Maximum Minimum
Temperature System
(MMTS). The structure stands
on a pole about eight feet high
and has a censor in it to mea-
sure the air temperature. A
display is located inside the
station for the weather re-
porter to take the readings.
Quite a change from the years
gone by when the radio an-
nouncer had to brave the ele-
ments to give the weather up-
date.
Rainfall is measured
through a copper "can" as
'Protsman calls it. Located in
the station's back yard, it has a
funnel on top that flows into
an inside cylinder encased by
an outer container. The cylin-
der holds two inches of rain
and when rainfall exceeds this
amount, the inside cylinder
spills over into the outside
container, forcing the weather
reporter to dump the cylinder
and pour the excess water into
the cylinder to get an accurate
measurement. A measuring
stick is used to measure the
rainfall.
The rain instrument, which
McAllister said is probably
the original gauge, is still
used.
McAllister said updated
rain gauges are made out of
aluminum, have a fiberglass
funnel and. have a plastic
cylinder inside. The rain
gauge at 98.1 is completely
copper.
The weather report" covers
the high and lows and the rain-
fall. At the end of the report a
comment will be made about
any unusual weather if there's
thunderstorms or tornadoes in
the area. The station has an
EAS machine, which alerts the
station of unusual weather.
The first weather reporter
was the late Bill Savitz. He
was a long-time Q98.1 em-
ployee who was assigned to do


the weather.
"Bill Savitz loved doing the
weather," Protsman said. "He
just ate it up."
After Savitz, Mark
Schmucker took over the
weather coverage. Current
weather reporter Marion Cata-
lano has been covering the
weather at the station since
1987.
The station still has the first
book of temperature and rain-
fall numbers that Savitz first
recorded. Catalano has caught
up all the numbers and kept
them preserved.
"Bill Savitz was very metic-
ulous about recording all the
numbers," she said.
Catalano calls in the read-
ings daily through the tele-
phone and sends out reports
monthly to the National
Weather Service in Jack-
sonville. After the weather ser-
vice looks over the report, they
send it to the National Climat-
ic Data Center.
Catalano said she often gets
calls from residents and busi-
nesses requesting the weather


readings, especially from peo-
ple putting in claims for hurri-
cane or flood damage.
Recently, she was able to
advise the people in charge of
the Suwannee County Fair to
move the date back because of
rainfall typically occurring at
the time of year the fair date
was originally set.
McAllister said the readings
taken by the station go
through a quality control
process. The National Climat-
ic Data Center publishes,
archives and certifies the num-
bers and records them on a re-
gional temperature precipita-
tion table sheet. The table
sheet compiles the highs, lows
and the average of the temper-
atures; the heating and cooling
degree-days; the precipitation
and the monthly averages. The
form records the numbers for
the entire year.
"If an industry was looking
to move to Live Oak and
wanted to know what the
weather was like, they could
get the record for the whole
year," McAllistei said. "Or


someone might want to
what their heating and c
costs would be if they 1
this area."
Protsman said the mI
teresting call about the
er was when a man ca
Savitz for advice about
ing a garden.
"The guy was going t
tomatoes or some
Protsman said. "He cal
Bill and asked, 'what t

it's about the midd

'can you guarantee their

March?' Bill said to him
no, I'd have to call the n
stairs for that."'

McMullen told the board
the district is proposing sever-
al .actions to improve school
performance grades.
Schools will emphasize the
L Time on Task Program, which
is an effort to minimize inter-
ruptions that interfere with in-
structional time. Administra-
tors will conduct more obser-
vation of benchmark instruc-
tion. A benchmark calendar
will be distributed to teachers
to improve collaboration be-
ft, pre- tween teachers and adminis-
atalano, trators. Schools will ensure
that teaching materials coin-
cide with benchmark instruc-
tion, 'testing. and re-testinig.
Weekly W it4ng,,activities wil

Popular cancer drug carries risks
Breast cancer deaths have fallen sharply, and the anti-cancer drug
tamoxifen has,played a large role in this. This drug helps prevent the
cancer coming back after initial surgery to remove a tumor. Tamoxifen
blocks the female sex hormone estrogen. This hormone influences the
growth of cells related to female reproduction, such as those in the breast
or the uterus. If there is too much estrogen in the system, cell growth can
accelerate to the point where tumors start to develop. Given in tablet
form, a patient will typically stay on the drug for several years. Often the
woman's cancer will be tested to see if it is sensitive to the amount of
estrogen in the person's system. If the cancer is estrogen sensitive,
tamoxifen is often prescribed.

Surprisingly, women who take tamoxifen run an increased risk of con-
tracting uterine cancer. The drug may also induce symptoms similar to
those of menopause, such as hot flashes and night sweats. Other com-mon
side effects include vaginal dryness, irregular periods and weight gain.
But experts stress that all the studies conducted on the drug so far show
that the benefits far outweigh the disadvantages. 188941-F


"Are we putting results back
into action by testing so
much?" Board Member Julie
Ulmer asked.
Board Member Jerry Taylor
questioned if all the testing
and re-testing' taking place
was necessary.
McMullen said most of the
testing done by the schools is
mandated federally and by the
state.
Taylor asked McMullen to
consider whether additional
testing that's not required
could be eliminated.
The board also had concerns
about the lack of time allotted
for extracurricular activities
and how to balance academics,
with a fun school experience
for students.
McMullen said the schools
have cut back on pep rallies
and field trips to emphasize
academics, but the district also
wanted to provide a healthy
learning environment.
Board Member Muriel
Owens pointed out that school
should be a fun time for chil-
dren, and was concerned about
how to get students motivated
toward academics.
"We should encourage inter-
ests to help children and par-
ents buy into academics such
as reward or incentive trips,"
Suwannee County Superinten-
dent of Schools Walter Boa-
tright said. "But this eats into
instructional time. It becomes
a vicious cycle."
Risk said test results and as-
sessments tell teachers what
direction to steer students in
and how to move them along.
The assessments are especial-
ly useful for teachers to be
able to individualize instruc-
tion.
"We're not talking about
classrooms anymore, but deal-
ing with individual children,"
Risk said.
District Director of Elemen-
tary Education Nancy Roberts
said research shows that
through test assessments
teachers can utilize results to
change instruction'Ts!u:" .t
"The asse..e.s,mr.',i,. show
teachers which students are at
risk or have weaknesses,"
Roberts said. "This helps
teachers to change instruction
to target certain students. Em-
phasis on testing and re-test-
inr is there for :a good, solid
.leason."
The board will have a fol-
T56i'-up' workshop in October
after their irst nine weeks of
,'school to discuss, the success
of the proposed. changes.

thinking, 'these two men must
get to know each other.' It
seems they are interviewing a
minister for the position of
minister of youth and family
care who would live in Dowl-
ing Park. The man, his wife
and their two girls, are from
North Carolina currently. His
name is the Rev. Randy Lamb!
Now, you who know me know
my son's name is the Rev.
Randy Lamb and he lived in
Suwannee County most of his
life until he moved off to ac-
cept a church ministry in Cen-
tral Florida and then later in
Georgia! They are not the same
person! I emailed my son so he
would know there is another
person in the world with his
same name doing God's work
just like he is. Who would ever
have thunk it! If the Rev.
Randy Lamb does become a
part of the ACV, I know he'll
have to spend time explaining
who he is to lots of local folks.
Lots of local folks got a let-
ter last week from a California
company that disturbed them
regarding delinquent property
taxes. I understand those who
have been cleared up and you
should be receiving a letter
from the same folks correcting
that. Please open that letter and
read it if you got more original-

By the time you read this,

hand in case of a hurricane emergency.
First every household should have an emer-
gency plan for when a hurricane is imminent.
Have a portable radio and flash lights on hand
with fresh batteries in case of power outages.
Clear your yard of all loose debris. Be sure to
store enough food (non-perishables) and water
(three gallons per person) for seven-10 days.
Make sure to fuel up your vehicles and extra fuel
cans.
If you do not have a household emergency
plan, this plan may help you:
1. Post emergency numbers by the phone (fire;
ambulance, police). Teach children how to call
911 for help.
2. Teach responsible family members how to
turn off the utilities in your home.
3. Identify family meeting places outside your
neighborhood in case you are separated. Be sure
everyone is clear about these locations.
4. Plan and be familiar with escape routes in
case you need to evacuate your neighborhood.
5. Be sure to include pets in your family disas-
ter plan. Pets are usually not allowed at all pub-
lic shelters.
6. Know where the public shelters are located.
Before a hurricane strikes, plan a safe evacua-
tion route, and identify safe shelter space within
your area. Those in a flood zone or in less than

Live Oak Police Officer Jason
Rountree was talking with the

he was intoxicated and armed

the high prices, he decided to
go with unleaded.
"I don't know how my car
will run with unleaded, but I
guess I'm about to find out,"
he said.
Another couple at the
pump expressed concerns.
They are from Georgia and
said the $40 they spent on
filling up the tank was the
most they have ever spent on
gas.
BP Manager Diane Thomp-
son said gas prices are outra-
geous. "I've had three drive-
offs in the last two days," she
said.
BP's policy is to have cus-
tomers pre-pay before filling
up, but Thompson said some
of her new employees' failure
to enforce this policy is creat-
ing more drive-offs.
"My new people turn the
pump on, and they're gone,"
she said.
Thompson said if they
don't turn on the pump right
away. People will come in to
give a dollar just to get the
pump turned on, or they leave
to find a place that doesn't re-
quire them to pre-pay.

According to a report by
LOPD, the man told Rountree
he was going to take his own

According to Foxworthy, a
redneck is someone with "a glo-
rious absence of sophistication,"
and the title isn't just reserved for
Southerners. While performing
in Detroit in the early years of
his comedy career, it became ap-
parent to Foxworthy rednecks
can be found anywhere. "The
club I was playing was attached
to a bowling alley that had valet
parking. That is redneck." Fox-
worthy promptly wrote 10 red-
neck jokes and performed them
the next night. There was an im-
mediate connection with the au-
dience and the rest, as they say, is history.
Foxworthy went on to become the largest sell-
ing comedy-recording artist in history, a multiple
Grammy Award nominee and the best selling au-

.Aug. 22-26 will be revival
time at Wellborn's Allen
Chapel AME Church. The Rev.
Duval of Tallahassee will bring
the message each night with
services beginning at 7 p.m. in
the church's sanctuary. Re-
freshments will be served at
the conclusion of the revival's
final service on Friday night.
Allen Chapel is located on C-
10 and 5th Ave., Wellborn.
My friends, Andrea Haller
and Joe Schomburg, owners of
Wellborn Quarter Horse Farm,
recently took a month-long va-
cation, part of which was spent
driving cross-country and
along the Pacific Northwest
coastline to parts of Washing-
ton State and Oregon. Joe said
they traveled 8,600 miles to eat
oysters and crab and to hear
the Tsunami/Volcano test
warning that blasted every
Monday afternoon promptly at
4 p.m. 'through the camp-
ground where they were stay-
ing. Being visitors to the area
and not used to such, Joe said
they never knew if Helen the
Volcano was preparing to blow
or if the Pacific Ocean was on
the rise. This past May marked
the 25th anniversary of the ex-
plosive eruption of Mount St.
Helens. Andrea said they also
got to see the as-of-yet unfin-


ished monument of Crazy
Horse, which is being carved
out of a mountain. She said the
monument will be absolutely
awesome, the size of the an-
cient Phoenix once it is com-
pleted, and a must-see on any-
one's list of national monu-
ments to visit.
A good time for a good
cause was had in Wellborn this
past Friday. Wellbom's Neigh-
borhood Watch (WNW) held
its yearly block party at the
Wellborn Community Park on
4th Ave. The fun began at 5
p.m. and was still going strong
when I left around 8 p.m. De-
spite the heat the crowd stayed
strong throughout the event,
maybe because of the ham-
burgers and hot dogs WNW
Coordinator Russell Smith and
Bruce Campbell were busy
cooking up, or maybe for a
piece of the delicious red vel-
vet cake Cindy Macy brought.
I had a piece and it made my
taste buds happy. If any one
went away hungry, they did so
by choice, not lack of food of-
fered. The table was laden with
a bountiful selection of side-
dishes, salads and desserts.
Everyone enjoyed the cooler
full of hot boiled peanuts
brought by State Rep. Dwight
Stansel and wife, Glenda. Ice


cold soft drinks and water
helped quench our thirst.
No good cause can be com-
plete without special guests.
The WNW knows how to get
the big ones to come out. Em-
cee for the event was Chief
Deputy Ron Colvin, who intro-
duiced the speakers, including
his boss, to the crowd. Suwan-
nee County Sheriff Tony
Cameron, along with District 4
County Commissioner Billy
Maxwell, Stansel and WNW
Coordinator Russell Smith
were all given the opportunity
to speak to those present. Each
speaker spoke on issues that
were relevant to the occasion,
crime and prevention.
Suwannee County Deputy
John Zimmermann, Deputy
Tommy Roberts 'and Deputy
Mary Maxwell were also pre-
sent. Deputy Zimmermann and
Deputy Roberts were* in uni-
form and patrolling the Well-
bom area. They stopped by for
a brief visit before returning to
their duties of keeping the law
in the outback and the lawless
out. Deputy Mary Maxwell
was off duty and was there as
number one supporter for hus-
band, Commissioner 'Billy
Maxwell.
Thanks to Power Country
102's Craig Chewning for
keeping the crowd entertained,
to all the businesses that donat-
ed prizes for the ticket draw-
ings and to all the members of
the WNW for their dedication
to keeping the Wellborn com-
munity safe.
Pray for our troops and their
families, be kind to a stranger,
help your neighbor and tell
those you love you love them.
Remember to be an encour-
ager, not a discourage.

Chief Joe Si
Sergeant First Class Joseph
Subic Jr. has received nearly 30
military awards and decorations
during his service in the United
States Army, the Florida Na-
tional Guard and the United
States Army Reserve. On Aug.
2, Subic again demonstrated his
ability to stand up under pres-
sure as Major General Karol A.
Kennedy, Commanding Gener-
al of the 99th Regional Readi-
ness Command, presented him
with a Bronze Star Medal for
his actions in Iraq.
SFC Subic, locally known
as White Springs Police Chief
Subic, served an extended
tour of duty in Iraq that lasted
18 months because the lead-
ers there requested he stay
longer due to his outstanding
skills.
The ceremony at the Stephen
Foster Folk Culture Center State
Park Museum in White Springs
opened with the posting of col-
ors by the Hamilton County
High School JAFROTC. After
White Springs Mayor McKire
welcomed the guests, Veterans
Service Office Herbert Lump-
kin offered an invocation.
Colonel Richard B. Davis Jr.,
Florida National Guard State
Judge Advocate and Hamilton
County Judge introduced Maj.
Gen. Kennedy, who presented
the Bronze Star Medal to Subic.
Kennedy who began her mili-
tary career in 1963 as an enlist-
ed officer, said that she felt priv-
ileged to be able to present the
medal to Subic before she re-
tired in 10 days.
"Soldiers like Joe are not
compelled to serve, they choose
to serve," Maj. Gen. Kennedy
said. "It is no accident that
America produces soldiers like
Joe with the heart and courage
to serve their nation."
Maj. Gen. Kennedy ex-
pressed her pleasure at meeting
Chief Subic's family wife
Valinda, daughter Ashley, son
Joey and father Joseph Sr. and
thanked them for sharing him
with the U.S. Army Reserve.
As guests and participants
dried their tears, Maj. Gen.
Kennedy pinned the Bronze
Star Medal on Chief Subic. The
Bronze Star Medal is awarded
for heroic or meritorious
achievement or service in con-
nection with military operations
against an armed enemy. Subic
as the Personal Security Officer
for the Deputy Commanding
General, Multi-National Force-
Iraq and the Commanding Gen-
eral of Task Force 134 and his
team came under fire repeatedly
during the course of their duties
in Iraq.
At the conclusion of the cere-
mony Amber Lee sang "God
Bless America," and Rev. Ron
Thompson, pastor of First Bap-
tist Church in White Springs,
offered the Benediction.
During the reception follow-
ing the ceremony, Chief Subic
said, "Let's continue our prayers
for those overseas and get our
troops home." His wife, Valin-
da, said, "Our family is very
proud of Joe and appreciates all
the prayers and help of every-
one. I don't know how we
would have made it without
their support."
As the guests departed, the air
was filled with peals of carillon
bells playing a selection of pa-
triotic songs.
Chief Subic joined the Army
in 1974. He was one of 51 sol-
diers who was captured by Iran-

1981, Chief Subic has worked
as an administrator in various
sheriff's offices throughout the

When asked about his future
plans, Chief Subic replied, "I
love White Springs and will

for as long as possible."

FROM THE PAGES OF THE 95TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20, 1979 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT





Steamboats: A Way Of Life On The Suwannee


The deep throated whistle of the
paddle wheelers created the most vivid
of the legends which surround the
Suwannee River. For 75 years the
steamboat was a way of life to the
citizens of the Suwannee River country
- providing communication, supplies,
transportation of farm produce and
even recreation.
The steamboat was "king" of the
river, exciting the wonder and
admiration of all who came to the
landing places or heard the haunting
Sound of their whistles as they made
the journeys to and fro along the
stream.
The years have erased the records of
the first steamer which surged into the
channel of the river, searching for a
channel through the shoals and
shallows of its upper reaches. From a
musty record of the Army is revealed
the first recorded trip of a steamboat
on the river and this may have been the
first time that the proud streamers cut
through the waters of the Suwannee.
During the Seminole Indian War,
183542. an Army fort at Suwannee
Springs was crowded with soldiers and
the families of the settlers. Conditions
were bad as extreme high water in the
river had cut off the fort from supplies
of any kind.
Water levels started dropping in the
winter of 1836-37 and a steamer from
the Army base at Cedar Key ventured
up the river bringing much .needed
supplies to the fort. It is possible that
this boat had made other trips on the
river before this, but there is no record,
of it.
The Steamer Madison has perhaps
created the greatest legend of the river
boats. She was a familiar sight on the
river in the decade before the Civil
War, as her captain, James M. Tucker,
sailed the river, operating the boat as
a floating country store,


Captain Tucker left Cedar Key once
a week and steamed as far up the river
as conditions would permit-usually to
Colubmus (Ellaville).
Since her sinking in 1863 a legend
has grown around this river boat until
today it is believed that she was a
Confederate gunboat which was sunk
in battle in Troy Springs, but such was
not the case. The true stories state that
she was an old gunboat, and it did
serve as a gunboat at one time, but
when it was sunk in Troy Springs, it
was done so purposedly with the
intention of raising it after the Civil
War and using it again on the river-but.
she was stripped down as she rested in
her watery grave and probably it made
salvage too expensive for what was left
of the vessel .
John Caldwell of Jasper helped to
sink the old vessel and in later years
wrote of this experience in the Jasper
News. His article revealed much of the
life of the steamboat era, it is quoted
below.
Caldwell wrote that "Many persons,
especially those living in the interior,
on visiting seaport towns, go to the
docks to see the vessels. Some are
arriving, other departing, and others
still, moored to the docks, taking on or
discharging cargoes.

"And great boats some of them are
too: 'mighty leviathans of the deep,'
'floating palaces,' 'Ocean greyhounds,'
which excite wonder and admiration.

"But none of them has ever excited
more interest than the Steamboat
Madison did to us scattered crackers
along the Suwannee River in the days
before the advent of the railroads, or
the beginning of the Confederate War.


"The Madison was owned and
operated by Captain James M. Tucker
and ran from Cedar Key as high up as
the river as the height of water would
permit. The Madison made one round

trip every week from Cedar Key. She
always went as high as Crab, two miles
above Troy, or what is now the

Suwannee side of the river and where
Nathaniel Bryant operated a store,
Postoffice, and farm. Where the water
was high enough that the boat would

go as far up the river as Columbus,
which was then a small town of
considerable importance and stood
across the Suwannee River from where
Ellaville is now located.


"On one occasion the Madison made a
trip as high as White Springs. A
number of persons, Captain Tuircr
among them, were anxious to have the

Suwannee River declared a navigable
stream as high up as White Springs,
but the necessary legislation could not
be obtained, because no boat had ever
navigated .the river higher than
Columbus. When this state of affairs

was reported *'- 'p'in Tucker he
swore that he'd be damned if he didn't
put the Madison in White Springs if he
had to run her up there on wheels. Just
here was an instance where 'fortune
favored the brave,' for Tucker didn't
know what the word 'fear' meant. It

began to rain, the river began to rise,
and it kept on raining and the river
kept on rising until the Suwannee


The Three States, above, was the largest of the steamers that operated on the Suwannee. Owned by
Captain Bob Ivey of Branford, who also owned the Belle of the Suwannee and the City of Hawkinsville,
the boat ran the run from Cedar Keys to above Luraville in the late 1800's.

The most famous of the river steamers on the Suwannee River was the "Belle of The Suwannee," built
at Branford in December 1889 by Captain R, A (Bob) Ivey and put into service in December of that year.
The craft operated up the river as far as conditions would permit and along the coast from Cedar Key to
Steinhatchee. The Belle floundered during a hurricane off Deadman's Bay on Sept. 29, 1896 and a number
of passengers were killed.


on the river and the boat would tie up a
a landing and stay as long as the people
wanted to trade and then move on to
the next landing.
"the Madison had a whistle that
could be heard for ten miles and this
whistle was blown at intervals to give,
the people time to reach the landing
with their produce.

"When the Confederate War began,
Capt. Tucker raised a company of
Confederate soldiers and took them
aboard the boat. The company slipped
out of the river one night on the
Madison and captured a federal
gunboat. Finally orders came to
Captain Tucker and his company to go
to Virginia where the company was
afterward known as Company H, 8th
Florida Infantry.

"It was about September, 1883,"
Caldwell wrote, "when the Madison
was abandoned by Capt. Tucker and
he was going to sink her in Old Troy
Springs, intending to raise her when
the war should cease. A number of
citizens living near Troy wanted the
boat to bring a load of corn up from Old
Town and Capt. Tucker turned her

were cut up into convenient lengths
and used by neighboring farmers in
their sugar furnaces. Her cabin was
torn up and the lumber used by

In his research on the history of the
county, E. K. Hamilton found this
further reference to the Madison in the
book "Soldiers Of Florida" which he
said "Details from Companies F & C of
the 2nd Florida Regiment under
command of Capt. Walter B. Moore, on
July.4,1861, took the Steamer Madison
and captured three schooners loaded
with railroad irons. On June 25, 1861, a
levy of 20 men from the companies of
Captains Williams and Moore,
afterward Companies B and C from the

and recaptured four schooners, which
had been taken by the United States
Steamer Massachusetts, a few days
before, and sent them, with Lt.
Seldon, U.S.N., and 19 Marines, the
prized crew, into Cedar Key."


Shortly after the war was ended in
1865, steamboats became nurn,-r..u .n
the river. Captain R. A. (Captain BobI
Ivey built several at Bran ford and
operated them on the river and at
nearby coastal points.
Most famous of Captain Ivey's boats
was the "Belle Of The Suwannee,"
launched in December 1889. She hauled
freight and passengers and had several
staterooms, one of which was designed
as the "bridal chamber., She gained.

Expansion of the railroads and
development of the automobile
sounded the death of knell for the boats
sailing the Suwannee River. One by
one they began to disappear-most ol
them tied to the banks and allowed to
sink.
In 1923, the "City Of Hawkinsville,"
last of the boats to operate on the river,
tied up to, the bank at Old Town and
soon settled to the river's bottom.

When the year 1868 dawned,
Suwannee County was only two years
old and still in the process at founomuig
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 the
South in this war on the side of the
Confederacy with the signing of fi
Act of Secession on Jan, 11, 1i84,
Among those signing was James ':
Newman of Suwannee Counity, '~ h
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
J-.:l.sonvile and Pensacola, construc-
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 outlei 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.

Deer-dog registration program

goes statewide for 2005-06


In Daytona Beach today, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
voted to expand statewide, a
registration program for deer-
dog hunting on private lands
for the 2005-06 hunting sea-
son. The decision was based
on the overall success of a pi-
lot program adopted last hunt-
ing season in the Northwest
Region in lieu of more restric-
tive measures.
According to a report pre-
sented by Lt. Col. Mike Wiwi,
deputy director of the Division
of Law Enforcement, the addi-
tional time and costs associat-
ed with administering this pro-
gram across the state will be
minimal and manageable for
current FWC staff and bud-
get.
Wiwi said 70 individual
properties, representing 55
deer-dog hunt clubs, partici-
pated in the pilot program.
Those properties ranged from
40 to 31,000 acres and were
situated in 14 of the 16 coun-
ties within the Northwest Re-
gion.
With the pilot program in
place, complaints dropped 27
percent, compared to the aver-
age of the previous four hunt-
ing seasons. More important-
ly, only five complaints were
associated with registered
deer-dog hunting clubs. In
comparison, a review of last
season's complaint data for
the North Central and North-
east regions, where registra-
tion was not required, showed
an increase in deer-dog hunt-
ing complaints from the aver-
age of the previous four hunt-
ing seasons.
At the conclusion of the
2004-05 hunting season, the
FWC conducted a survey of


all participants of the pilot
program to determine levels of
satisfaction associated with
registration requirements and
to identify any concerns with
the program or process. Al-
most half the participants re-
sponded, and all said the
process of completing the ap-
plication, registering and com-
plying with the new require-
ments was easy or very.easy:
Nearly 90 percent said they
experienced no problems with
affixing their assigned identi-
fication numbers to their dogs'
collars, and almost 70 percent
thought the new registration
was a valuable tool for helping
manage deer-dog hunting on
private lands:
During May, the FWC con-
ducted six public meetings
across the state to make cer-
tain hunters and other interest-
ed groups: -were fully aware
of the proposal for statewide
registration,
*had the opportunity to ask
questions to better understand
the specifics of the proposal,
and-could provide comments.
These meetings helped clar-
ify some common misunder-
standings about the proposal
and fostered broader support
from hunters and other stake-
holders, Wiwi said.
This new statewide registra-
tion program will require no-
cost registration for anyone
using dogs to hunt or pursimt
deer on private lands in Flori-"
da during the deer-dog train-
ing season and during any
open deer-hunting season
when taking deer with dogs is
permitted.

this new statewide deer-dog
registration program, visit'

ASK DR.MANTOOTH

Q: What should I do for a toothache?
A: A toothache is not normal. It's a sign
that something is wrong. You can
address the pain of a toothache with an
anti-inflammatory drug like aspirin or
ibuprofen, but you should call your
dentist immediately to set up an
appointment. One word regarding
aspirin: never apply aspirin directly to a
sore gum. The acid in aspirin can burn
and severely irritate gum tissue. In
some cases a toothache could be
caused by nothing more serious than a
particle of food stuck between teeth. Try
flossing and rinsing your mouth with
warm salt water. If that doesn't succeed
in dislodging the particle, don't try to
force the particle out yourself. Call your
ttentist. When a tooth starts to ache-
and that throbbing pain can get pretty
intense-it's more likely that decay and
infection has reached the tooth's pulp,
the sensitive, soft tissue inside the
tooth. So the tooth is going to need the
attention of a dentist. The best way to
avoid a toothache, of course, is to
Brush, floss and visit your dentist
regularly.

FWC offers unique hunting opportunities


In addition to regular and
special quota hunts, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) is offering sportsmen
some unique hunting oppor-
tunities for the coming sea-
son.
The FWC is providing


The fans and drag racers
were treated to an aircraft fly
over during the opening cere-
monies of the NHRA Division
II drag race at South Georgia
Motorsports Park this past
weekend. The crowd cheered
as the members of the Third
Flying Training Squadron from
Moody AFB soared above dur-


sportsmen mobility-im-
paired hunts, supervised
youth hunts, a family hunt,
quail hunts and track vehicle
and airboat hunts on wildlife
management areas (WMAs).
Applications will be avail-
able June 30 from FWC re-
gional offices and online at


ing the National Anthem. The
members from Moody include
Capt. Ryan "Sloth" Corrigan,
Lt. Col. Mark Hess, Lt. Nathan
Owen, Lt. Justin Sime, Lt. Bai-
lyn Beck, and Lt. Chris
"Lager" Peter.
The flight crew was posed
here with a Super Comp drag-
ster driven by Jimmy Stahl of


www. wildflorida. org/hunt-
ing/quota_hunt/default. html.
The application period for
submitting applications to
be included in the random
drawing is July 13-29. Like
the regular and special quota
hunt applications, these ap-
plications must be submitted


Boone, NC. Stahl posted a per-
fect reaction time of .000 sec-
onds just after this photograph
was taken. South Georgia Mo-
torsports Park wishes to thank
all the fans, drag racers and
Moody AFB for their participa-
tion. South Georgia Motor-
sports Park is located in Cecil,
Ga.


through the internet, at tax
collector offices or at any li-
cense agent. Applications
are no longer accepted by
mail.
Mobility-impaired hunts
are for persons who require
special equipment. These
hunts are not intended for
hunters who have Florida
Disabled Person Hunting
and Fishing Certificates, but
rather those who are perma-
nently confined to a wheel-
chair, persons who require
the use of mechanical aids
(crutches and walkers) to
walk or those with complete
single-leg amputations.
Another unique hunt is for
hunters 8-15 years old. Two
WMAs in the North Central
Region (Camp Blanding and
Andrews) offer opportuni-
ties for non-hunting adults
to supervise young hunters
on public hunting areas
where the number of hunters


and the hunting areas are
rigidly controlled to provide
an optimum learning experi-
ence and maximum safety.
These hunts are popular, and
the number of applicants ex-
ceeds the number of spaces
available each year.
The new Matanzas WMA
will offer a family hunt this
year. Applicants age 18 or
older may apply for a per-
mit. The permit holder is re-
quired to bring from one to
two children ages 8-15. Un-
like the youth hunt, the fam-
ily hunt allows the adult su-
pervisor to hunt with the
children.
Wildlife management ar-
eas in the southern part of
the state offer hunters an un-
usual challenge because of
their open-marsh landscape.
Hunting these areas requires
special vehicles, and the
FWC has established quotas
on the number of vehicles


allowed.
Permits to operate track
vehicles on the Rotenberger,
Everglades and Holey Land
WMAs and permits to oper-
ate airboats on the Ever-
glades and Francis S. Taylor
WMAs are issued in two
random selections.
A quota hunt permit will
be required to hunt quail on
the Blackwater WMA Hut-
ton Unit and Blackwater
Field Trial Area in the
Northwest Region. There
are seven two-day hunts
available on the Hutton Unit
and two four-day hunts on
the Field Trial Area. The
quota is two groups per hunt
on the Hutton Unit and three
groups per hunt on the Field
Trial Area. A group may
consist of up to three
hunters. Shooting hours end
at 3 p.m., and the bag limit
is 12 quail per group per
day.


FDOE approves NFCC's Educator

Preparation Institute for teachers


North Florida Community
College (NFCC) was among
eight community colleges ap-
proved to provide teacher
training for paraprofessionals
and others through Education
Preparation Institutes the
Florida Department of Edu-
cation (FDOE) announced
recently. Other community
colleges are: Brevard, Indian
River, Lake City, Manatee,
Pasco-Hernando, Pensacola
and Polk.
FDOE Commissioner John
Winn wrote President Morris
G. Steen, "We are encour-
aged by the interest our insti-
tutions have shown in pro-
viding teacher training and
eager to get the Educator
Preparation Institutes (EPI)
running. I am pleased to in-
form you that your model for
providing teacher training
through.an,Eductor Prepara-
tion Institute has received
state approval. "
The educator institutes are
a result of the 2004 legisla-
ture's response to the teacher
shortage in Florida. Commu-
nity colleges are seen as ide-


al venues for delivering pro-
fessional development and
teacher training quickly and
efficiently to local con-
stituents.
NFCC began its first phase
of training for 21 teachers to
meet education and training
requirements, called the Al-
ternative Teacher Certifica-
tion Program, on July 18..
This first cohort will com-
plete training in January,
2006.
In September, NFCC will
create a second cohort of new
teachers to meet education
and training requirements.
This second cohort will com-
plete training in May, 2006.
NFCC also offers this route
to certification to mid-career
professionals and college
graduates who were not edu-
cation majors but want to be-
come certified teachers. ,
"NFCC's EPI program
must meet the same stan-
dards and same accom-
plished educator practices as
any four-year teacher educa-
tion program. Those EPI pro-
gram participants completing


their coursework and passing
the required state examina-
tions will receive their
teacher certification from the
Bureau of Educator Certifica-
tion," said Dr. Phillip
Mantzanas, director of the
EPI program.
A major component of the
EPI project is NFCC's part-
nering with K-12 school dis-
tricts served by the college:
Hamilton, Jefferson,
Lafayette, Madison, Suwan-
nee and Taylor counties, to
design programs that meet
the needs of each school dis-
trict. Training for the pro-
grams will occur both on and
off the NFCC campus.
NFCC is now accepting
applications from teachers
with temporary certification
and non-education college
graduates for training which
begins Sept. 12.,

Revel's book rescues from
historical neglect the stories
of the women of Florida who
suffered Civil War traumas
and privations commensu-
rate with women throughout
the Confederacy. Revels
drew in large part on prima-
ry source discoveries as she
recounts the experiences of
wives and widows, Union-
ists and secessionists, black
female slaves and their plan-
tation mistresses, business
owners and refugees. Revels


writes that no matter their
political allegiance, these
women lived dual lives, di-
vided in their loyalties be-
tween what they often per-
ceived as the competing in-
terests of their nation and
their families.
Revels holds a Ph.D. in
history from Florida State
University and is also the
author of "Watery Eden: A
History of Wakulla
Springs." She lives in Spar-
tanburg, S.C..

learned the basics of using a
sewing machine, which in-
cluded how to thread and use
the machine. They made
aprons and quilt-pieced star-
pattern' pillows. They also
made a picture frame with the
same fabric they used to make
their pillows. The extension f
office furnished a picture of
each of the girls making their ..
pillows for their frames. There

Where Girls Grow Si


By Mary Check-Cason
Can you believe that sum-
mer is over and it's already
time to go back to school? I
know I'm always saying this
but really, where DOES the
time go? Seems like only
yesterday I was planning our
Memorial Day picnic and
summer day camp and now
recruitment time and school
is here.
Speaking of recruitment,
sign up night for girls in Live
Oak will take place on Tues-
day, Aug. 16 and Thursday,
Aug. 18 at the Suwannee
County Coliseum. Both
events will begin at 6 p.m.
and finish around 8 p.m.
Girls and their parents are in-
vited to come by and experi-
ence the upcoming year of
activities planned for Live
Oak. There will be games,
snacks, displays and crafts to
make and take home. And to
add to the excitement, The
Council Shop will be at the
Coliseum on Aug. 18 with a
display of all the new Girl
Scout uniforms, program
supplies and fun stuff. Come


early and stay late and do all
of your shopping for the
coming Girl Scout year. You
can even call the shop toll-
free at 800-768-6289 and
place your order. They will
save you the postage by
bringing your order right to
Live Oak!
Some of the activities
planned for this year include
The World Caf6 International
Festival; The Big Chill Thrill
Campout; Live Monopoly
2006 and of course our annu-
al cookie sale beginning in
January. I have a group of
girls interested in animal res-
cue during times of hurricane
emergencies and these girls
will be working hard to learn
all there is to know about
providing for the animals we
so dearly love.
There will also be recruit-
ment events in Branford
from 6-8 p.m, Monday, Aug.
15 at Hatch Park; Aug. 19
and 20 at the Lake City Mall-
Friday from 6-9 p.m. and
Saturday from 11 a.m.-3
p.m.; and from 6-8 p.m.,
Thursday, Aug. 25 in Jasper


Beginning August 1 thru August 31
Season Tickets will be on sale for $35. After Aug. 31,
all remaining seats will be open to the public.

CIVIC SUWANNEE


Sonshine Ministries report to Lions Club


I LOVE CHILDREN!! This was the cen-
tral theme of a talk given by Margie Miller
and Barbara Coulthurst at the Lions Club
meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 9. Miller and her
husband, Robert, moved from South Florida
to Suwannee County a few years ago and
purchased 20 acres near Dowling Park.
These two ladies stated the ministry,
called Sonshine Youth Ministries, was es-
tablished to provide positive influences to
teenage girls. They provide a safe place for


the girls to go for a week at a time. They are
provided wholesome recreation such as
horseback riding. Miller stated that many of
the girls had never seen a cow. They are also
given spiritual guidance.
Barbara Coulthurst, who is a CPA, gives
instruction in such things as personal hy-
giene, balancing a checkbook, handling
credit and budgeting income.
Suwannee County is indeed fortunate to
have such a program.

SCHOOL


Boatright completes


Sunshine State Library


Leadership Institute


Kay Boatright, catalog and
interlibrary loan librarian at
North Florida Community
College (NFCC), was among
the first class of the Sunshine
State Library Leadership Insti-
tute to graduate July 22. The
Institute is sponsored by the
Florida Department of State,
State Library and Archives of
Florida, under the direction of
Secretary of State Glenda E.
Hood.
"It was an excellent leader-
ship training program," said
Boatright. "The multiple ses-


sions allowed us to explore
many aspects relating to lead-
ership. The state library of
Florida did a great job select-
ing participants from many
different libraries public,
special, and academic. We
were able to get many differ-
ent perspectives relating to the
profession."
The purpose of the institute
is to develop and enhance the
leadership skills of Florida's li-
brary staff. The year-long se-
ries of sessions focuses on de-
veloping diverse leaders to


serve in administrative roles at
local, regional, state and na-
tional levels, as well as reener-
gizing staff currently employed
in the library and information
management profession.
Thirty-four completed this
year's 10-session program.
The participants, who repre-
sent public, academic, special
and school libraries, were
chosen from applicants
statewide.
Boatright and her hus-
band, Robert Hogan, reside
in Live Oak.

with excitement as she invited
the 17 million full-time resi-
dents and the 40 million annu-

sion and Krystal Lambert of

enth-ninth grade division of

and Lambert each won $50

warded to the national con-
test where winners will be
announced and on display at

Conservation Districts Annu-
al Meeting in New Orleans in

Prescribed burning helps
prevent devastating wildfires.
In 1978, the U.S. Forest Ser-
vice used prescribed fire to
burn 35,170 acres in Florida.
That year, Florida wildfires
burned 36,747 acres of USFS
land. In 2004, the USFS in
Florida burned more than
162,000 through land man-
agement programs and wild-
fire claimed only about 3,300
acres.
Since 2002, the NWTF has
spent more than $182,000 on


gulf waters

Grouper bag limits in state
waters haven't changed; in fed-
eral waters in the Gulf of Mexi-
co, they have.
Federal waters begin nine
nautical miles offshore in the
Gulf. A nautical mile is
6,076.115 feet as opposed to a
statute mile, which is 5,280 feet.

During the last year, the

state and federal agencies
fund prescribed burns.

federal waters in the Gulf allows
three grouper, only one of which
can be red. Also, Gulf federal

Jackson Hewitt Computerized


Income Tax Course Starts September

Our self-paced program will teach you how to prepare tax returns!


Each year, more and more enroll in the Jackson
Hewitt Tax Service" Computerized Income Tax
Course (CITC), a six week multimedia program
offered each fall in Jackson Hewitt Tax Service
offices nationwide. CITC combines instructor-led
training with a self-paced computer application that
objectively tests each student's progress in the
program.
Formal education in mathematics or accounting is
not required to take the Jackson Hewitt Computerized
Income Tax Course. In fact, most students enroll in
CITC simply to broaden their tax knowledge and
improve their computer skills.
"My only experience was preparing my own taxes
for more than 30 years," said David Smith of Little
Rock, AK, who took the Jackson Hewitt
Computerized Income Tax Course to learn the basics
of income tax preparation.
"I was very impressed with the course. I could go at
my own pace," said Smith, a professional business
writer. "I don't think I could have received any better


training than I did with the computer class."
C1TC students meet twice a week with trained tax
professionals who apply adult learning theories to
teach participants how to complete the forms and
schedules necessary to file an income tax return. A
detailed tax manual provides students with substantial
tax information to use as a reference guide as they
complete each module of the user-friendly, self-paced
computer application.
The Jackson Hewitt Computerized Income Tax
Course has helped college students, military spouses,
stay-at-home parents and retirees enhance their
computer skills while they acquired the tax
knowledge necessary to prepare tax returns for
themselves, their family and friends. Many even go
on to work as Jackson Hewitt tax preparers.*
For more information, please call 362-1633 or visit
us online at www.jacksonhewitt.com
*Completion of this course is neither an offer nor a
guarantee of employment. Additional training or 2
experience may be required. Most offices are g
independently owned and operated.

Are your


kids too

busy?
By Stephanie Overton
Whether it's after-
school activities, soccer
practice, music lessons,
karate 'lessons, a part-
time job, chances are
your kids are running to
keep up with loads of ac-
tivities. But how much is
too much? Even summer,
a time once sacred for
lazy days and unstruc-
tured activity, has be-
come just another thiee
months on the calendar
for those super kids and
their parents % ho would
be remiss without a day
planner or PDA in their
reach. We're left won-
dering, "Whatever hap-
pened to free time?"
There are many advan-
tages to keeping your
kids involved in activi-
ties, particularly those
that provide regular
physical exercise The
childhood obesity rate in
the U.S. is of serious
concern, so getting your
son or daughter off the
couch and in motion has
many health related ad-
vantages. Then there are
the developmental as-
pects of participating in
organized activities, such
as sports, dance, or mu-
sic-social skills are de-
N eloped as %%ell as physi-
cal coordination. Re-
search indicates that kids
who are involved in
sports or other activities
are more likely to stay in
school; males are less
likely to get in trouble
with the law; and fe-
males are less likely to
have teen pregnancy\
These are all positives
and great motivation to
keep your kids moving
from one activity to an-
other.
What's too much 'or
not enough is unique to
each child; the key is
finding balance and set-
ting realistic expecta-
tions. Dr. Steve Lerch, a

to what they talk about. He
asks, "Do your kids ever talk
to you about things outside

they're not overwhelmed,
staying busy can be good.
The results of an annual
study performed by the Co-
operative Institutional Re-
search Project reports that
more than 25 percent of en-
tering college frchmen said
they felt overwhelmed as se-
niors in high school. Lerch
says, we should think about
where this begins. For some,
it may begin as early as that
first little league season that
was coupled with piano
lessons and Tai Kwan Do
twice a week. Add to that a


regular school day with
homework, and you have a
child who's on the clock and
trying to keep up with a
schedule that would be con-
sidered hectic even for an
adult.
"The real danger is if the
child's relationship with the
parents becomes dependent
on her performance in what-
ever activity she is in-
volved," adds Lerch, "Par-
ents' expectations can be so
high that anything other than
performance at the highest
level is considered a failure
to them. What's the motiva-

playing a sport or spending a
lot of time in any one activi-

very disappointing. If the
child doesn't receive the re-

were expecting, there could
be a negative effect on him
and his self-worth.

New do's and don't for

protecting the heart
Making the right decisions about heart health is a complex task made even harder by the
rapidly evolving advice that emerges from medical research. To help consumers make the
hard decisions they face in trying to shield their hearts, the independent, unbiased health
experts at Consumer Reports on Health (CRH) have reviewed the recent findings and
medical evidence behind new recommendations.
For example, an advisory panel recently recommended that the government strengthen its
already aggressive cholesterol guidelines, a move that could put millions of Americans on
cholesterol-lowering
medication and cause
those already taking it to
boost the dosage or
switch to stronger,
potentially riskier drugs. ""
The new guidelines make 1.
lifestyle changes more .#
essential than ever, since
they can minimize the .
need for high doses or .. .
possibly let people avoid .: ..
medication entirely. Here '.":i .. ,
are some highlights --
and trusted advice -- from
the July issue cover
report, "The New Do's
and Don'ts for Protecting
your Heart."
Do's and Don'ts for the .
New, Aggressive
Recommendations for
Lowering Cholesterol
R Do consider CRP: .
strengthened the ( ..
connection between heart s uc.
disease and C-reactive .
protein (CRP), a marker
of arterial inflammation.
CRH's m e d i c a I-' wt
consultants say that
knowing your CRP level
can help you make the
decision about how best
to follow the n ew, Diet and exercise are more important than ever since they can help
re ssive nations for people reach the new LDL levels with only moderate drug doses.
relowering cholesterol Some disciplined individuals with a high LDL might get, by;with
lowering cholesterol non-drug steps alone. Do work out regularly and control your
levels. Medical evidence weight
shows that an elevated
CRP pushes people into a higher-risk group that justifies more aggressive cholesterol-cutting
therapy. Most people with moderate or high coronary risk should consider getting their CRP
levels tested. The CRP test requires a small blood sample and costs less than $50.
Do get the right cholesterol-cutting drugs: Virtually all people who need to get their LDL
("bad" cholesterol) down to the lowest level will need medication. Many others will too if
lifestyle steps don't suffice.
Don't let ads mislead you. Conflicting drug-ad campaigns can confuse consumers and
possibly produce inappropriate choices.
Do start with generic lovastatin in most cases. People who require just a moderate LDL
reduction (less than 40 percent) should usually start with lovastatin,'which has the longest
safety record and lowest cost ($28 to $40 per month) of any station.
Do consider stronger medicine if necessary. Individuals who need larger LDL reductions
(40 percent or more) or have very high coronary risk because of factors such as heart disease
or diabetes should generally take the more powerful drug atorvastatin (Lipitor). It costs $117
per month, but it has a longer safety record than another station with comparable efficacy plus
a proven ability to reduce both heart-attack risk and total mortality.
Don't overlook the last resorts. If moderate doses of atorvastafin don't suffice, you could
either try the highest dose or switch to combination therapy.
Do watch for adverse effects. That's especially important if you're taking a station at a
high dose or together with other cholesterol-cutting drugs. Call your doctor immediately if
your muscles become achy, tender, or weak, because in rare cases stations harm the muscles,
releasing a protein that can fatally damage the kidneys.
Do get the right blood-pressure medication: Recent studies have caused some experts to
urge that treatment guidelines be revised in favor of newer drugs, but CRH's medical
consultants say that's premature.
Do start with a diuretic in most cases. People with high blood pressure should usually
start drug therapy with a diuretic, such as hydrochlorothiazide.
Do add another drug if necessary: If the diuretic doesn't reduce blood pressure enough, a
second drug is needed: usually a beta-blocker or ACE inhibitor; although a calcium channel
blocker or other medication is sometimes appropriate.
Do/diet and exercise: It's more important than ever since it can help people reach the
new IDL levels with only moderate drug doses. Some disciplined individuals with a high
LDL/ might get by with non-drug steps alone. Do work out regularly and control your
wei, it. Don't overlook omega-3s: Those fatty acids-supplied primarily by fatty fish-can
rel ece heart attack risk. Do consider soy and sterols, which can reduce LDL.
SDo manage your emotions: Maintaining good emotional health-by treating depression,
curbing anger, relaxing, and even just laughing-may be nearly as important for preventing
heart attack and stroke as proper diet and exercise.
CRH provides a table to help people find their LDL treatment plan, based on risk factors
from high to low, and summarizes our recommendations based on a government advisory
panel's suggestions and growing medical evidence.
