|ASK DR. MANTOOTH|


Q: Are there other reasons besides oral
health for good dental practices?
A: Yes. For one thing, brushing and flossing
your teeth could help lower your risk for
heart disease. Gum disease, also called
periodontal disease, is characterized by
inflammation of the gums and a buildup of
bacteria. The bacteria produce toxins that
destroy the bone that supports the teeth. It
is possible for the bacteria to get into the
bloodstream and settle in other parts of the
body, including the 'blood vessels of the
heart. This potentially fatal Infection is
called endocarditis. And it's a reason why
the American Heart Association has had
guidelines in place for decades for the
administration of antibiotics prior to dental
treatment for people who may be
susceptible to the spread of bacteria.
Research has shown that people with
periodontal disease are twice as likely to
suffer from coronary artery disease.
Periodontal disease. Is painless and
progresses slowly. The best way to keep
from getting it and eliminating any
possibility of the bacteria spreading is to
practice good dental hygiene at home and
visil your dentist regularly

"I cannot release case details,"
McCullers said when asked if a
person in Suwannee County
had died of this disease. Due to
policy that prevents the Health
Department from identifying
victims of diseases, McCullers
could not specify the area of
Suwannee County where the
disease was encountered due to
state police.
It takes from 4-10 days after
the bite of an infected mosqui-
to for an individual to develop
symptoms of EEE, McCullers
said. These symptoms begin
with a sudden onset of fever,

Lowe's and the post office will

Because DDJ has voluntari-

property along US 129 into
the city recently, both projects
are in the city and the city will
handle all permitting.
Live Oak Public Works Di-.
rector Bob Farley said Lowe's
has submitted preliminary site
plan that calls 'for a 137,933
square foot building with a
garden center. This size, ac-
cording to others involved in
the project, is approximately
the size of the Lowe's in Lake

DOH continues to advise the
public to remain diligent in
their personal mosquito protec-
tion efforts. These should in-
clude the "5 Ds" for prevention:

Avoid being outdoors when
mosquitoes are seeking blood.
For many species, this is during
the dusk and dawn hours.
3. Dress -- Wear clothing that
covers most of your skin.
4. DEET -- When the poten-
tial exists for exposure to mos-
quitoes, repellents containing
DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-tolu-
amide, or N,N-diethyl-3-
methylbenzamide) are recom-
mended. Picaridin and oil of

COMMENTARY

What is The Suwannee County Economic Alliance?


This is the last of our articles to explain
the structure and workings of the four or- C
ganizations that make up the Suwannee
County Economic Alliance. We have ".
explained the Chamber of Commerce, .
the Council for Progress, and the Devel-- .
opment Authority. Today we'll explore ,
the Suwannee County Tourist Develop- &
ment Council.
The Tourist Development Council
works with our local tourism-related in- BY DENI
dustries to promote Suwannee County.
We are all aware of and enjoy the leisure Suwannee County Ec
activities that our beautiful county offers,
and the TDC has the fun job of telling
others about it. The Suwannee River provides the backdrop for many
outdoor recreational activities in what the travel industry calls The
Original Florida. We don't have to tell you about hunting and fishing,
and swimming in the springs and these are only a few of our attrac-
tions. The Suwannee.River Wilderness Trail is continuing to develop
and is enjoyed by more and more visitors every year. Horseback rid-
ing, bird watching, bicycling, many and varied concerts and events
and the Suwannee County Historical Museum add to the list of our
tourism offerings.
The TDC assists financially with many events in Suwannee Coun-.
ty through grants and sponsorships. These events include the Miss
North Florida Scholarship Program, the Branford River Reunion, the
Live Oak Christmas Lights Committee (planning now for the up-
coming Christmas season), the Suwannee River Jam and other activ-
ities at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, the Suwannee Coun-
ty Fair, the 2004 Fall Harvest Festival and Scarecrow Contest,
Christmas on the Square, and building and upkeep of the county's'
springs. An application must be made'to receive a Tourist Develop-
ment Fund grant or a sponsorship. More information and forms are
available at the, Chamber office. Also available at the Chamber are
new maps of Suwannee County that the Tourist Development Coun-
cil has funded. .
The Tourist De% elopment Council comprises Chairman Dick
Calitt and board members Millie Griswold, Judy Honeycutt, Billy
lMa.x ell, Sonny Nobles, Don Owens, Norman Protsmart, ,and
Charles Thomas. You guessed it: another set of bosses! New mem-

bers are recommended by the existing
council and appointed by the County
Commissioners.
The Tourist Development Council is
intent on increasing the number of visi-
tors to Suwannee County, their length of
stay, and their economic impact. The
Council's funding source is the county
bed tax fund.
Our website, suwanneechamber.com,
has tourist information and a calendar of
local events for your convenience. Be
sure to watch for information on the up-
coming Downtown Getdown, coming
every Friday in October at Millennium,


Park!
The TDC is always looking for any organization that has a festival
or event to publicize. Your information can be mailed to the Chamber
of Commerce at Post Office Drawer C, Live Oak, or you can drop by
the Chamber office at 816 South Ohio and have your brochures or fly-
ers placed in the information rack.
This concludes our articles on the structure and tasks of the Alliance.
We are going to continue submitting an article about once a month to
keep you informed about the progress of each of these organizations.
Our purpose in writing these articles has been to inform you about
who is doing what to help increase the future well-being of Suwannee
County. Now that you know, we invite you to get involved. Become
a part of the Chamber of Commerce and the Council for Progress.
Your ideas and input are welcomed by all four of the organizations that
make up' the Suwannee County Economic Alliance.
,We ha e' often said that giox th is.coming and I believe we now
have to change that and say that it's here! It is our job (and that in-
cludes you) to make the noht decisions no,% that %%ill allowthe growth
to be beneficial to all ofus, but not ruin the area in which we were bom
or have chosen to li\ e and raise our children or relax in our retirement
years. It is our goal to keep our rtural integritN but embrace the changes
that will give us better schools, better medical care, and increase the
quality'of services and comforts of life!
Again, to contact any of the groups of the Suwannee Cotunt Eco-
nomic Alliance, come by or call the Chamber office at 362-3071. You,
too, can be one of my bosses!

Dear Editor:
Fire assessment meeting.
I attended this meeting Aug. 16 and departed after an hour. I
had signed up to, speak as required. The moderator (Johnny Woo-;
ley) was well spoken and thoroughly explained the solid waste
proposal that was first on the agenda.
-I departed because nobody made an effort to control this un-
ruly mob for an audience. The moderator should have put an im-
mediate stop to the endless speakers' personal problems, but he
did. not. There were certainly some good points raised by indi-
viduals, but we were NOT there to discuss anything other than
the lowering of the assessment. These other subjects should all
have been handled at a regular commission meeting or privately.
I departed without speaking because of the lack of control or
discipline exhibited by anyone in authority that was present. I
have seen more order in a children's greased pig catching con-
test.
My remarks were basically, how does a fire truck get to the
scene of a fire on our lousy roads? Taxpayer dollars are wasted
on paved sidewalks, paved bike paths, traffic lights at non-exis-
tent cross-roads, pedestrian crossing lights across non-existent
roads, a Live Oak bypass road from US 129 to Houston St. that
connects to US 90 about 1,000 feet west of the US 129 US90
intersection. All of these wasted taxpayer dollars could be re-
pairing the impassible 180th St. between CR 49 and CR 137; or
184th St. between CR 137 and Columbia County (CR 242); or
264th St. between CR 49 and CR 247; or McAlpin Road; or
192nd St. west of CR 49. Reader, you can add your own gripe


list in addition to these lousy roads.
Next time you commissioners decide to hold an open forum
for the public, hire inme to be sergeant at arms. I'll keep order!
Steve S. McDonald

Dear Editor:
Please print this 'as a public apology to Suwannee County
Commissioner Udell for allowing my frustration with the Board
of. County Commissioners as a whole to be'vented upon, Mr.
Udell personally. My remark directed to Commissioner Udell
was inappropriate in a public forum and certain\ did not well
represent the Lord whom I serve. For this I offer my public apol-
ogy.
Sincerely,
Bob Richardson

Dear Editor,
September is a very busy month for the American Flag and for
us to show our pride and respect for it. It is to be flown on: Sept.
5, Labor Day; Sept. 11, Patriot Day (1/2-staff until sunset); Sept.
16, POW/MIA Recognition Day; and Sept. 17, Constitution Day.
Please remember, the flag should never be left in the dark. If
you wish to fly the flag after dark, flag protocol. dictates that it
be illuminated.
Respectfully,

OBITUARIES


Today, I waive my chance to
talk and ask that you read this ar-
ticle sent to me by one of my
friends. I need not explain fur-
ther if you promise to read every
word...
Seventeen-year-old Brian had
only a short time to write some-
thing for a class. The subject
was what heaven was like. "I
wowed 'em," he later told his fa-
ther. "It's a killer. It's the
bomb. It's the best thing I ever
wrote." It also was the last.
Brian's parents had forgotten
about the essay when a cousin
found it while cleaning out the
teenager's locker at his high'
school. Brian had been dead
only hours, killed when his got
out of .his wrecked vehicle and
stepped on a live electrical wire
from the power pole his vehicle
had struck.
The teen had handwritten the
essay two months earlier
about encountering Jesus in a,
file room full of cards detailing
every moment of
the teen's life. But it was only
after Brian's death that his par-
ents realized their son had de-
scribed his view of heaven.
Brian's Essay:
The Room...
In that place between wake-


fulness and dreams, I found my-
self in the room. There were no
distinguishing features except
for the one wall covered with
small index card files. They
were like the ones in libraries
that list titles by author or sub-
ject in alphabetical order. But
these files, which stretched
from floor to ceiling and seem-
ingly endless in either direction,
had very different headings. As
I drew near the wall of files, the
first to catch my attention was
one that read "Girls I have
liked." I opened it and began
flipping through the cards. I.
quickly shut it, shocked to real-
ize that I recognized the names
written on each one. And then
without being told, I knew ex-
actly where I was.
This lifeless room with its
small files was a crude catalog
system for my life. Here were
written the actions of my every
moment, big and small, in a de-
tail my memory couldn't
match. A sense of wonder and
curiosity, coupled with horror,
stirred within me as I began ran-
domly opening files and explor-
ing their content. Some brought
joy and sweet memories; others
a sense of shame and regret so
intense that I would look over.

my shoulder to see if anyone
was watching.
A file named "Friends" was
next to one marked "Friends I
have betrayed." The titles
ranged from the mundane to the
outright weird. "Books I
Have Read," "Lies I
Have Told," "Comfort I have
Given," "Jokes I Have Laughed
at." Some were almost hilarious
in their exactness: "Things I've
yelled at my brothers." Others I
couldn't laugh at: "Things I
Have Done in My Anger,"'.'
"Things I Have Muttered Under
My Breath at My Parents." I
never ceased to be surprised by
the contents.
Often there were many more
cards than I expected. Some-
times fewer than I hoped. I was
overwhelmed by the sheer vol-
ume of the life I had
lived. Could it be possible that I
had the time in my years to fill
each of these thousands or
even millions of cards? But
each card confirmed
this truth. Each was written in
my own handwriting. Each
signed with my signature.
When I pulled out the file
marked "TV Shows I have
watched", I realized the files
grew to contain their con-
tents. The cards were packed'
nghtly, and yet after two or
three yards, I hadn't found the,
end of the file. I shut it, shamed,
not so much by the quality of
shows but more by the vast rime
I knew that file represented.
When I came to a file marked
"Lustful Thoughts," I felt a chill
run through my body. I pulled
the file out only an inch, not
willing to test its size, and drew
out a card. I shuddered at its de-,
tailed content. I felt sick to think
that such a moment had been
recorded. An almost animal
rage broke on me. One thought
dominated my mind: No
one must ever see these
cards! No one must ever see this
room! I have to destroy them!".
In insane frenzy
I yanked the file out. Its size
didn't matter now. I had to emp-
ty it and burn the cards. ;But as I
took it at one end and began
pounding it on the floor, I could
not dislodge a single card. I be-
came desperate and pulled out a
card only to find it as strong
as steel when I tried to tear it.
Defeated and utterly helpless, I
returned the file to its slot.
Leaning my forehead against
the wall, I let out a long, self-
pitying sigh.
And then I saw it. The title
bore "People I Have Shared the
Gospel With." The handle was
brighter than. those around it,
newer, almost unused. I pulled
on its handle and a small box not

Jackson Hewitt Computerized

Income Tax Course Starts September
Our self-paced program will teach you how to prepare tax returns!


wr


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."
CIIC students meet twice a week with trained tax
professionals who apply adult learning theories to
teach participantshow to complete'the forms aitd
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 ani offer nor a
guarantee of employment. Additional training or
experience may be required. Most offices are ,
independently owned and operated. T

more than three inches long fell
into my hands. I could count the
cards it contained on one hand.
And then the tears came. I be-
gan to weep. Sobs so deep that
they hurt. They started in my
stomach and shook through
me. I fell on my knees and
cried. I cried out of shame, from
the overwhelming shame of it
all. The rows of
file shelves swirled in my tear-
filled eyes. No one must ever,
ever know of this room. I must
lock it up and hide the key. But
then as I pushed away the tears,
I saw Him.
No, please not Him. Not
here. Oh, anyone but Jesus. I
watched helplessly as He began'
to open the files and read the
cards. I couldn't bear to watch
His response. And in the mo-
ments I could bring myself to
look at His face, I saw
a sorrow deeper than my own.
He seemed to intuitively go to
the worst boxes. Why did He
have to read every one? Finally
He turned and looked at me
from across. the room.
He looked at me with pity in His
eyes. But this was a pity that
didn't anger me. I dropped
my head, covered my face with
my hands and began to cry
again. He walked over and put
His arm around me. He could
have said! so 'many things.
But He didn't say a word. He
just cried with me.
Then He got up and walked
back to the wall of files. Starting
at one end of the room, He took
out.a file and, one by one, began
to. sign His name over mine on
each card. "No!" I shouted rush-
ing to Him. All I could find to
say \\ a "No., no." as I pulled the
card from Him.. His name
shouldn't be on these cards. But
there it was, written in red so
rich, so dark, so alive. The name
of Jesus covered mine. It
was written with His blood.
He gently took the card
back. He smiled a sad smile and'
began to sign the cards. I don't
think I'll ever understand how
He did it so quickly, but the next
instant it seemed I heard Him
close the last tile and walk back
to my side. He placed His hand
on my shoulder and said,."It is
finished." I stood up, arid He led
me out of the room. There was
no lock on its door. There were
still cards to be written.

"I canrt do all things through
Christ who strengthens me."-
Phil.4: 13

"For God so loved the world
that He gave His only son,. that
whoever believes in Him shall
not perish but have eternal
.life."

Fire and rescue paramedics receive cross training


Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter

It pays to go to school.
Suwanee .County Fire and
.Rescue recently 'sent para-
medics Stephanie Whitehurst
and Shawn Hillengas to'Flori-
da State Fire College in Ocala
for a 12-week fire fighter-
paramedic training. The two
went to school with their tu-
ition paid, a continuing salary
and a raise awaiting them
when they got back to work,
all compliments of the depart-
ment.
Chief Murel McDonald said
Whitehurst and Hillengas are
the 10th and 11th fire and res-
cue employees in Suwannee'
County to be crossed trained.
About 18 out Of a staff of 21
are trained as fire fighter para-
medics.
"Ultimately, we're working
on everyone being cross
trained," Whitehurst said.
"This way when we receive
fire calls the paramedics will
know what to do on a fire
scene, and if it's a car wreck


fire fighters can help out med-
ically if there are numerous,
patients on the scene."
Hillengas said an experi-
ence in the Marine Corps in
North Carolina led him to pur-
sue the EMS field.
With military search and
rescue Hillengas worked a
life-flight call where he
helped pull out a man from a
horrible car wreck. Hillengas
remembers the man having se-
vere head injuries and little
chance of survival. Three
weeks later the squad got to
meet the man again and wit-
ness his 100 percent, recovery.
"He was walking and talk-
ing and out of the hospital,"
Hillengas said. "It was be-
cause of the medics. The im-
pact we had got me interested
in the field."
Whitehurst shares the same
enthusiasm for the job.
"The first time I went to a
sick person and was able to
turn the situation around, I fell
in love with the job," White-
hurst said.
Hillengas headed for Lake
City Community College to

New cholesterol-lowering drugs
Hyperlipidemia is a medical term referring to abnormally high levels of fat
like cholesterol and triglycerides in the bloodstream. If these levels remain
high they can lead to health problems such as coronary artery disease, heart
attack, and stroke. Cholesterol is "packaged" naturally with blood proteins to
form what is called lipoproteins. Cholesterol car-ried by LDL (low-density
lipoprotein), commonly thought of as "bad cholesterol", greatly increases the
risks of health problems. HDL (high-density lipoprotein) can, actually have
benefits of lowering the risks of health problems, thus it is sometime called
"good cholesterol".
Recent years have led to several new cholesterol lowering drugs. Crestor
(rosuvastatin) is a newer member of the station family. Drugs in this class
block the natural synthesis of cholesterol in the liver during sleep. Crestor has
similar side effects to others in this class, such -as muscle breakdown. Zetia

cholesterol in the foods one ea., :,nr 'important sourcee in thoe .s'.e h high
cholesterol. Vytorin (ezetimibelsimva-statin) combines a drug in the station
family with Zetia (ezetimibe), attempt-ing to lower the cholesterol by two,
different methods at the same time. Talk to your pharmacist if you have
general questions related to choles-terol drugs. 189941-F

medic after he completed his
military, training. He lias been,-
, itth the department for about
two ,ears. ,
'Whitehurst has been with
the department for almost five
years and received EMT and
paramedic training in Jack-.
sonville.
"I love the excitement: the
not knowing what's gomng to
happen the next minute,,'
Whitehurst said about the job.
Agreeing, Hillengas said,
"It's not a Monday through.
Friday' show up and do the
same thing everyday job."
The cross training has en-.
abled the fire fighter paraj-
medics to continue to serve
medically for EMS calls aind

calls. Hilleneas ,x ill still serve

other hand, will equally fight
fires and serve medically.
Hillengas said pre ious to
the cross training he experi-
enced being on a fire scene
twice.
"I felt lost," he said. "Now
when I'm called to a fire I can
play a'role whether that means
operating a truck or a hand
line (hose)."
Whitehurst said the depart-
ment plans to send two more
employees to be cross trained
in January. .

Florida's State Song

"Staismee Ribber"
(Old Folks At Home)
By Stephen Collins Foster

Way down upon de Suwanee, Ribber,
Far, far away, ..
Dere's wha my heart is tirnirig ebber,
Dere's who de old folks stay.
All up and down de whole creation
Sadly I roam, .
Still longing for de old plantation,
And for de old folks at home.

All de world am sad and dreary,
Ebrywbere I roam;
Oh, darke.vs, how my heart grows weary,
For from de uld folks at home.

All round de little farm,T wandered
When I was young,
Den nmany happy days T squandered,
Many de song I sung. .
When I was playing wid my brudder
Happy wns ;
Oh! take me to my kind old'mudder,
. Dere let me live and die.
One little hut among de bushes,
One dat I love,. '
Still sadly Lo my memory rushes,
No matter where I rove.
When will I see de bees an-bhumming
All round de comb?
When will I hear de banjo strumming,
Doin in my good old home?


Song Published As "Old Folks


At Home" In October 1851

Billad Lives In The Hearts Of Men
It has been wrillen thit the Suwannee River' is hot a'
long river. ,It is not a mighty river like the Amazon, a
commercially important one like the Missi-sippi. or a his-
torical one like the Nile, -
But the Suwannee which rises froni the Okefenokee
swamp Ip South Georgia and songs came to him. Together with
wanders 250 miles through Plor- his brother, Morrison, he search-
ida to the Gulf of Mexico Is the ed an atlas for the name of a
world's best-known and most southern river which would be


*i sutng about, river.
It is an internationally famous
river because Stephen Collins
Foster, the American Troubadour.
more than a hundred years ago
wrote a song about it-a song of
such universal appeal Lhat it is
played or sung countless times
around the world every day.
"Way Down Upon The Suw.l-
nee River" was heard on the USS
Missouril when Japan surrender-
ed to end World War H; it was
played when Roosevelt and Stalin
met at. sea during the war; it was
played to welcome General StJl-
well and his troops to India; it.
was heard during the Grace Kel-
ly-Prince Ranier wedding cele-
bration in Monaco. It will be
played today in Capetown. in
Moscow, In Singapore, and in
hundreds of other places far re-
moved from the United States. It
will be suung n many languages
and with deep feeling, for it, is
probably the world's most fami-
liar melody. 'j
The man who wrote it also
composed at least 200 other songs,
several of them almost as famous
as "Suwannee River"..
The song was published under
the title "Old Folks At Home" on
Oct. 1, 1851 and is, today more
commonly known as "Suwannee
River".
Stephen Collins Foster was 25-
years of age when the inspired
music for the most famous of his


musical enotih to fit his ions.
He came across the name of a
little river in Florida, the Suwan-
nee, and shortened the name to
two syllables by dropping the
"u" and "n" and the song was
soon on the road to great and
lasting fame.
When first publislWd, it bore
the name of the famous minstrel,
E. P. Christy, as the writer and
composer. Stephen sold this right
to Christy for a mere fifteen dol-
lars.
It. was not until 1879-more
than a quarter of a century later
-that Foster received credit for
his greatest work.
In 1935 the legislature of the
State of Florida designated "Way
Down Upon The Suwannee Riv-
er" as the state song. Thus Pos-
ter ir. the only composer of two
state songs, the other being "My
Old Kentucky Home",.
Containing 160-words. the song
was immediately popular and
rapidly spread in popularity to
every corner of the globe to be-
come one of the world' most uni-
versal and beloved songs.
Although it is believed that
Foster himself never saw the riv-
er which he was to make world
famous--his music made its
winding course, tree laden banks
a nostalgic dream for men the
world over. It is a song of the
people, capturing for each s01c-
ceeding generation something df
the past and a dream ever new.

Wakulla too much for Dogs


MARIO HAWTHORNE MAKES HIS FIRST TD: Hawthorne, a great Bulldog basketball player, made
his first touchdown as a football player Friday against Wakulla. Hawthorne was also named First
Federal Offensive Player of the Game. Photo: Paul Buchanan


DUKE DOE IS THE REAL DEAL! Dustin "Duke" Doe showed his stuff Friday night against Wakulla.
Doe is an awesome force on defense, a good punter and made a great end-zone catch. It would have
been a touchdown, but was called back for a holding penalty. Doe was named First Federal Defen-
sive Player of the Week. Photo: Paul Buchanan SEE ADDITIONAL PHOTOS PAGES 2-3B


Janet Schrader
Democrat Reporter
The talk on the radio was
that the Dogs showed they
could play with anyone.
Wakulla had the speed and the
quarterback and it took
Suwannee half of the game to
figure out, how to stop those
elements. But they did, shut-.
ting Wakulla down in the sec-
ond half. The final score was
the same as the half-time
score, 7-19.
Wakulla came out throwing
as the Dogs knew they would.
With 8:06 left in the first quar-
ter, Tanner Jones connected


with one of his speedy wide
receivers and Wakulla tacked
six points onto the scoreboard.
The point after kick hit the
crossbar, but amazingly it was
good, and the score went to 0-
7.
The Dogs came back with
sophomore quarterback
Tajhuane Roundtree leading
the pack. Mario Hawthorne
carried for Suwannee in the
first set of downs, gaining nine
yards and change in his first
run. The Dogs were running
out of the I-formation, some-
thing never before seen in
Suwannee. At least Tom
Daniels, color announcer for
Q98, said he couldn't remem-


ber it being used.
Roundtree ran an option
play and Suwannee had anoth-
er first down. Brandon Allen
and Jarred Yulee moved the
ball closer to the endzone for
the Dogs. Then a second down
pass from Roundtree to
Hawthorne put six on the
board for Suwannee with 5:14
left in the first period.
Cameron Ridgeway came out
and booted the point after. It
was good and the score was
tied at seven.
Wakulla threw a 70-yard
pass on the first play of their
next series scoring with 1:21
left in the first quarter. The
point after kick was no good,


but Wakulla was ahead 7-13.
Roundtree threw an inter-
ception in Suwannee's first
possession of the second quar-
ter. Wakulla capitalized on the
mistake, scoring off another
long pass with 9:39 left in the
first half. The score went to 7-
19 after Wakulla's unsuccess-
ful two-point conversion at-
tempt and that's where it
stayed until the end of the
game.
Dustin Doe caught a
Roundtree pass in the endzone
in the second quarter, but the
touchdown was called back
for a holding penalty.
The Dogs came out of the
field house after the half with


a few defensive changes.
These changes featured Dustin
Doe in many capacities. Doe
proved himself to be the real
deal against Wakulla. He was
everywhere. He caught a
touchdown pass, ran the ball
and hammered the Wakulla of-
fense all night with some hard-
nosed tackles that made the
fans cheer Doe also did the
punting duties until he got a
leg cramp. Duke Doe showed
his value Friday night and why
he's going to the University of
Florida after he graduates.
In the third quarter Nate
Herring, another Bulldog bas-
ketball player, snagged an in-
terception. Herring had anoth-


er INT in the fourth quarter but
the officials ruled him out of
bounds when he caught it. Eli-
jah Flowers came into the
game in the fourth quarter and
ran the ball for several first
downs. Patrick Brown, anoth-
er new face for the Dogs,
made some great gains in the
fourth. Coach bobby Bennett
put in the second string late in
the fourth. He had said he
would allow all players that
earned the right to play, time
on the field and he kept his
word. Back-up quarterback
Keith Brown took over in the
final moments of the game

Preston Hart going to


Cumberland University

PRESTON HART GOING TO CUMBERLAND UNIVERSI-
TY: Hart shows the way he masters his opponents in
the wrestling arena. Hart went undefeated two years in
a row in regular meets, won the state championship in
2004 and was' state runner-up in 2005. Photo: Janet

Democrat Reporter
Suwannee's Wrestler of
the Year two years in a row,
Preston Hart, is going to
Cumberland University in
Kentucky on a wrestling
scholarship. Hart took home
the state championship in his
weightclass in 2004 and was
state runner-up in 2005 on
the state runner-up Suwan-
nee Bulldog wrestling team.
"His parents and family
are super proud of him," said
Tara Hart, Preston's step-
mother.
Preston and his family did-
n't think the scholarship was
going to pan out. Preston
went to a wrestling camp in
the spring after being offered
the scholarship and injured
his knee. He and his parents
thought Preston would have
to wait to attend school until
his knee was rehabilitated.
But Preston worked hard
over the summer and his
knee is now 100 percent. So,
Preston will be leaving for
school this week.
"He's real excited about
going," Tara said. "But it's
so far away, he's a little ner-
vous."
Cumberland has a new
wrestling coach, Andrew
Medders. Tara said Medders
told Preston he believed Pre-
ston would make All-Ameri-
can in his first year.
"The coach is a super nice
guy," Tara said.

only TD, catching a Roundtree
pass in the .endzone.
Hawthorne is playing his first
year of Suw'annee football as a
senior. He's been a leading
force on the Bulldog basketball
team and was a state qualifier
in the 100-meter dash last year.

Hawthorne this year.
The Dogs came out and
made some costly mistakes.

and the ability to learn. Wakul-

2 at this point. Chrissy
Traydon got a single, Haejin
Choe doubled and Brianna San-
terfeit tripled off a great hit over
centerfield. Brooke Wainwright
was still hot and scored in the
fourth inning as well. Flagler
got one run in the top of the
fifth, but Suwannee answered
back with a great bunt by Ruby
Segura, a double by Daycia
Brady and a triple by Caitlyn
Hunt that scored Ruby and
Daycia. Haejin Choe got a great
lhit to score Caitlyn Hunt. In the
bottom' of the, sithli,- Morgan'
iL.:,dhdltz hit a triple and scored
off Brodke Wainwright's triple..
Final score Suwannee 12 Fla-
gler 5.
Brianna Santerfeit received
the game ball for her tremen-
dous hit, the most powerful hit
of the tournament
Game two Suwannee vs.
Middleburg (16-4)
Suwannee's second game
was against Middleburg. They
were a very young team just
like Suwannee was last year.
Suwannee's team had improved
greatly over the -year 'and they
showed it during this tourna-
ment. Suwannee's first four bat-
rei ;, Caitlyn Hunt. Shayla Kick-,
lighter, Chrissy Traydon and,
Haejin scored off base hits in
the first inning. Shelby Wadford
and Morgan Loadholtz also
added runs in the first inning.
Middleburg scored, one run in
the top of the first. Suwannee's
second bat added five more
runs by Ruby Segura, Daycia


Brady. Caitlyn Hunt, Shayla
Kicklighter and Chrissy Tray-
don. Shyla Hollan, Dallas
Smith, Ruby Segura, Chastity
Thomas and Caitlyn Hunt all
scored in the bottom of the third
bringing the score to 16-1.
Middleburg came back in the
top of the fourth and scored
three runs.. But it was not
enough to stop the 10 run rule
from ending the game. Brooke
Wainwright was, awarded the
game ball for a great play from
outfield to second base. Her
quick reaction surprised the
lMiddleburg team and got the
force out at second base.
Game 3- Suwannee vs. St.
John Storm (5-19)
Suwannee was still in the
winner's bracket when they had
to face the returning State
Champs from last year- St.
Johns. This game was played.
early on a Saturday morning af-
ter a rain delay prevented play
on Friday. St. Johns was very
strong defensively and offen-
sively. Suwannee had seen
them in an earlier tournament,
which St. Johns won 9-5.
Suwannee started off with a
double by Kicklighter in the
first inning and was hit in by
Choe. St. Johns came up to bat
and' Suwannee just couldn't
'stop them. St. Johns went on to
win the game 19-5.
Game 4- Suwannee vs.
Oveido (12-9)
,Suwannee had to come back
and pla. Oviedo after an hour
and a half break. Suwannee was
discouraged after their first loss,
in the tournament; and an ugly.


loss at that. They made a huge
turnaround in their quality of
play and their attitudes, reflect-
ing on the truest sense of the
word team. The Suwannee
Stars definitely showed up to
play for the Oviedo game!
Oveido was first up to bat and
scored three runs. Suwannee
answered back in a big way
with triples by Hunt, Kick-
lighter, Choe and Santerfeit.
Traydon got on base with a bunt
and scored Santerfeit. Brady got
a single that scored Traydon.
Wainwright hit a double that
,scored Brady but was tagged
,out at third. Suwannee got
Oveido out in a hurry with three
up and three down. The Suwan-
nee bats were still hot in the sec-
ond inning and scored another
six runs. Oveido scored three in
the third and two in the fifth, but
Suvannee held them 12-9.
Game balls went to Shayla
Kicklighter and Shelby Wad-
ford. Shayla's big plays from
third base, from her outs at first
to an .exciting run down from
third to second earned her the
game ball in this exciting game..
Shelby Wadford was also
awarded a game ball for hier
tremendous play at shortstop.
Game 5- Suiwannee vs.
S MSA (10-9) ,
Suwannee had to play their
third game of the day against,
Mandarin Softball Association
(Jacksonville). Many fans from
other teams had questioned if,
the Suwanneq team was the
same one that played St. John's
that morning, they were so sur-,
prised by the girl's turn around.


Now THAT'S Something

To Smile About!


Happy 1st Birthday

In fact one parent mentioned
something about small town
Suwannee and big city MSA,
but we won't go into that.
Coach Suzanne Hunt told the
girls that their actions on the
field (and off the field too)
speak louder than words. This
was just one of those instances.
Suwannee held MSA scoreless
until the fourth inning, while
scoring six runs in the first in-
ning with triples by Hunt and
Kicklighter, a great. bunt by
Wadford and doubles by Choe,
Santerfeit; and Brady. Hunt,
Kicklighter and Wadford scored
off base hits by Choe and San-
terfeit bringing the score to 9-0.
At this point Suwannee was
looking at the possibility of the
10-run rule, but things changed
quickly when MSA woke up
and scored seven runs in the top
of the fourth. Hunt got a base hit
in the bottom of the fourth and
advanced to second off a sacri-
fice bunt from Kicklighter.
Wainwright hit .a double to
score Hunt and the score was
10-7;
MSA came back and scored'
three runs in the top of the fifth
tying the score at 10-10. Brady
got a base hit .and .scored off
Waminwright's double for the go
ahead run. MSA's first batter in
the top of the sixth hit a triple
and scored on a fielder's choice
tying the game yet again.
Suwannee rose to the occasion
once again and shut down
MSA's hitters even though
MSA was at the top of their
lineup. Suwannee's first two
batters each hit down third base
line only to be thrown out at
first by MSA's hot third base-,
man. Chastity Thomas, Kickin'"
Kevin 'and Loretta Thomas'
daughter, stepped up to the plate
with a tied ball game, two outs,
bottom of the sixth. Overcom-
ing the tension of the moment,
'Thomas calmly got a base hit
and advanced to second and
then on to third on overthrows.


Coaches, teammates and par-
ents couldn't, believe it %when
Thomas missed the hold-up sig-
nal from third base Coach Da
Choe and rounded third for
home as MSA's por erful third
baseman, picked up the over-
thrown ball. The dugout and
bleachers erupted in screams as
Thomas scored the winning run
following a wild throw by the
third baseman. Needless'to say,.
Chastity Thomas' outstanding
base running earned her the
game ball.
Game Suwannee vs. At-
lantic Beach (4-11)
The semifinal game was
against Atlantic Beach (Jack-
sonville) district victors over St.
Johns. Atlantic Beach started it'
offwith three runs in the first in-
ning. Atlantic Beach scored
their runs while having two.
outs, a trend that continued dwur-
ing the remainder of the game.'
Suwannee got. on the score-
board in the third inning, when
Brady got a base hit and scored
offa hit by Hollan. At this point
the score was 6-1 with Atlantic
.Beach's three Iadditional- runs
coming in the top of the third.
Thomas scored in the bottom
of the third off a double by
Wadford. Atlantic Beach was
hot again and scored five runs in
the top of the fifth. In the top of
the sixth. Suwannee looked as if
, they would ralls as they sent At-
lantic Beach to the dugout with
a three up-three down defensive
action. Loadholtz doubled and
then scored off a double by Se-
gura. Thomas' base hit brought
Segura in for Suwannee's final
run of the game. Atlantic Beach
moved into the finals with a
score of 4-11. The heat, three
grueling games the day before
and a strong Atlantic Beach'
.team overcame Suwannee's
race for the championship.
Catcher Chrissy Traydon's
great plays at the plate when she
tagged the runner out coming
home earned her 'the game ball..


Chrissy has really\ matured at
the catcher position and we look
for great things to come at the
next level of play.
The team returned home to
Live Oak proud of their third
place finish in the state! The.
girls celebrated with a party at
Columbia Skate Palace where
they were joined by Mike
Smith. father of- right
fielder/catcher, Dallas Smith.
with Mike sporting this year's,
latest fashion mistake, a blight'
pink dress with fish net hose
and high heels! It seems that
N like had made a friendly wa-
ger dunng the District Tourna-
ment in an effort to get the team
fired up and it was time to pay
up! It takes a special kind offa-
ther to wear a dress just to en-
courage his daughter's Softball.
Team but Mr. Mike fulfilled his
promise. We had a great group
of parents and the girls want
them to know just how much
they appreciate them!

Outdoor passions switch wildlife show to an August venue


By Dwain Walden
dwain.walden@gaflnews.com
MOULTRIE, GA. It s
been said that South Geor-
gians and North'Floridians
have a passion for hunting
and fishing. That s only nat-
ural since the area is cov-
ered with thousands of
ponds and lakes, hundreds
of creeks and several rivers.
As well, there are vast
woodlands and hundreds of
thousands of acres of crop-
lands that provide a wide
variety of wild game.
The field and stream her-
itage so common to this
area becomes much more
evident toward the fall as
crop debris begins to draw
droves of doves to peanut
and small grain fields. Not
long after that, crisp morn-
ings draw deer
hunters into the woods
and around the edges of
fields, waiting for that tro-
phy buck to step into the
clearing. Come late August,


some of these enthusiasts
may be downright giddy so
it s fitting that The Southern
Wildlife and Outdoor Expo-
sition at Spence Field in
Moultrie has moved from
its previous February set-
ting to coincide with the im-
pending excitement.
Dove season opens just a
few weeks after this event
and so does deer bow- hunt-
ing season. Meanwhile,
fishing and camping is a
year-round sport in this area
although summer and fall
are favorites for these out-
ings.
So if you re an avid fly
fisherman, a quail hunter or
if you want to see the latest
in deer stands, this event is
scheduled for Aug. 26, 27
and 28. You will also find
experts and equipment for
many other outdoor activi-
ties.
There will even be a rock
climbing wall for those who
dare to embrace that spe-


cialty of nature one-on-one.
And we really need
South Georgia s participa-
tion to make this thing
grow, said Expo chairman,
Bob Swadel. If we have
big attendance, then we get
more sponsors and the show
continues to grow.
The expo, sponsored by
the Moultrie-Colquitt
County Chamber of Com-
merce, has experienced
very wet springs which
dampened turnout in the
first three shows. This first
August show will take on
much greater dimension,
said Swadel.
This year, the Georgia.
Department of Natural Re-
sources is partnering with
the wildlife show which
Swadel said adds to the
credibility of the event.
As well, this gives DNR
a much larger crowd for its
Outdoor Adventure Days ...
larger than they ve ever
had, he added.


The most recent DNR
Adventure Days event was
held at Lake Blackshear.
Chamber executive Dar-
rell Moore said DNR will
make use of the Maule Air-
craft pond at Spence Field
to provide family fishing.
Moore said grass-eating
carp have been placed in the
pond to clean it up, and the
pond will be partitioned off
with catfish stocked for
fishing on those three days.
This show gives DNR an
audience for its many edu-
cational programs, includ-
ing wildlife/land manage-
ment, firearms safety and
boating, etc., said Moore.
Moore said the show is
designed to appeal to the
entire family, noting that
there will be something
children and the housewife
can enjoy as, well.
There will be skeet
shooting areas as well as
archery and BB guns, said
Moore. And there will be


lots of arts and crafts.
Moore said Chip Blalock,
executive director of the
Sunbelt Agricultural Expo,
which leases Spence Field
from the City of Moultrie,
has been very accommodat-
ing to allow the show to
take place in late August.
The nation s largest farm
show follows shortly after-.
ward in mid October.
The wildlife show will be
held, ini several buildings,
including the Morton
Building, Chevron Build-
ing, Exhibitors Lounge,
the Family Living Building
and on the adjacent out-
doors areas.
We ve planned, this
show to be interactive,
said Moore.
So far, 96 exhibitors of
outdoor equipment and ser-
vices have signed up for the.
2'005 eent.
The endorses will be
demonstrating and selling
their wares in what is billed


as an instructional and en-
tertaining venue.
As well, some 20 artists
will have their outdoor life
works on display for view-
ing and sale. This year, the
featured artist will be for-
mer Moultrian
Bucky Bowles, who now
resides in Columbus, Ga.
Committee membere. Harvie
Ann Cox is heading up
those exhibits and a pre-
view of the art work is be-
ing scheduled.
At least 10 food.vendors
will be serving the crowd,
and anyone with a military
identification can get in
free'. The admission fee for
adults is $6.
For children under 12, the
tickets are $4.
The gates will open at. 10
a.m., on Friday 'and will
close at 6 p.m. On
Saturday, the gates are
open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
on Sunday.


Deer-dog training season nears; register your dogs now


Hunters who use dogs to
hunt deer on private lands in
Florida must now register,
their deer-dogs for the 2005-
06 hunting season.,
This new statewide, no-
cost registration program is
not only mandatory during
any open deer-hunting season
when taking deer with dogs is
permitted, but also during the
upcoming deer-dog, training
season.
The deer-dog training sea-
son opens Oct. 1 and runs
through Oct. 20 in the central
and south hunting zones. In
the Northwest Hunting Zone,
the training season runs Oct..
29-Nov. 17.
Registration may be issued
to hunting clubs or landown-
ers for anyone who wants to
hunt deer.with dogs, on a par-,
ticular tract of land. A unique
registration number. will be


issued from the
Florida Fish and-
Wildlife Conser-
vationi Commis- .....l
sion (F \C), and
that number must
be affixed or at-
tached to the col-
lars of dogs used
to hunt deer on
registered proper-"
ties.
To comply with
this new rule, a
representative
from each hunting
club must com-
plete the appro-
priate application
which is available
from regional
FWC offices and
at MyFWC.com/hunting.
Proof of landowner permns-
sion or a copy of the written
lease agreement music be pro-


vided along with a general Hunters r must possess
map of the property shove ing 'copies. of their registration
boundary lines and a legal de- while they are hunting, and
scription. ., they must keep their dogs on


registered properties,
as required by the
Hunter Responsibility
Rule.
This new
statewide registration
program is a direct re-
sult of last year s suc-
cessful pilot program
in northwest Florida,
where our commis-
sioners tried to bal-
ance the rights of
' property owners
while preserving the
long-standing tradi-
tion of deer-dog hunt-
ing in Florida, said
Nick, Wiley, director
of the Division of
L .Hunting and, Game
Management.
Seventy individual prop-
erties, representing 55 deer-
dog hunt -lubs,, participated.
Those properties ranged from


40 to 31,000 acres and.were
situated in 14 of the 16 coun-
ties within the FWC s North-
west Region, Wiley said.
X\ith the pilot program in
place, complaints dropped 27
percent, compared to the av-
erage of the previous four
hunting seasons. More im-
portantly, only five com-
plaints were associated with
registered deer-dog hunting
clubs.
In comparison, a review of
last season s complaint data
for the North Central and
Northeast regions, where reg-
istration was not required,
showed an increase in deer-
dog hunting complaints from
the average of the previous
four hunting eason :

Know% Nour Deductible in

policies in Florida now list a

While this looks like a small
amount, in reality it may be

the homeowner is responsi-

would be responsible for the

Hurricanes are a way of life
here in Florida. but with ade-
quate and early preparation, you
can effectively safeguard your
family and property from dev-
astating losses.
Over the last eight months,
my office has been helping
Florida residents recover from
the fury of Mother Nature. In
order to learn lessons from last
year's' storms and share them
with all Flondians. I recently
traveled the state and met with
more than 3,000 Floridians dur-
ing town hall meetings in Flori-
da's hardest-hit areas. My office
has also fielded more than
350,000 consumer assistance
requests based on last year's
storms. By combining the in-
valuable testimony collected,
with my experiences in dealing
with Hurricane Andrew and
Hurricanes Charley, Francis.
h an. and Jeanne, my office is
able to make the following hur-

Exhibit shows

19th century

"Printed Florida"
INVERNESS An exhibi-
tion of printed images of
Florida's past will be on dis-
play in the Old Courthouse
Heritage Museum through
August 31.
The Printed Florida Illus-
trated Newspaper Images,
1860-1900 exhibit will show-
case 25 original, Florida-
themed prints from Harper's
Weekly and Frank Leslie's Il-
lustrated Newspaper. The
prints show the state from the
perspective of the illustrators
who explored Florida before
the Civil War, during the Re-
construction and in the days
that followed.
These publications became
household favorites in the
days before photography be-
came widespread in periodi-
cals, relying instead on draw-
ings to convey ideas. As such,
the exhibit not only represents
Florida's past, but also the
past of the publishing indus-
try. The telling images and en-
gaging stories of these papers
appealed to the nation's bur-
geoning middle class.

10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each Mon-
day Friday and from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
The museum lies within the
Citrus County Courthouse,
which appears on the Nation-
al Register of Historic Places.


Admission is free.
The Citrus County Board
of Commissioners built the
courthouse in 1912 to provide
expanded services during the
extensive phosphate, citrus,
lumber and dry-goods trade
of the early 20thi century. It
has since received extensive
restoration and was featured


in the 1961 Elvis Presley film
Follow That Dream.

will be a valuable reference
after a storm.
Invest in preventive mea-
sures. Studies prove most
hurricane damage is caused
when openings like garage
doors and windows give way
and allow further damage to
occur. Reinforce your prop-
erty with a storm-resistant
garage door, reinforced win-
dows and other approved
windstorm-ready items.

tained in 2004, now is the
time to find out about the
discounts your insurance
company offers for specific
wind-resistant building ma-
terials and construction
methods. Following Hurri-
cane Andrew, Florida passed
a law requiring, all insurance
companies to offer discounts
on construction measures
that are proven to reduce
windstorm damage. A web-

fered by each company for
specific \ measures is avail-

Know the status of your
escrowedd" insurance poli-
cy. If the cost of your insur-
ance policy is included in
your monthly mortgage pay-
ment, your mortgage compa-
ny pays for the policy out of
your escrow account. How-
ever, you are still responsi-
ble for ensuring that the pol-
icy is paid for. Don't ignore
notices from your insurance
company that your policy is,
delinquent. This is a red flag
that the insurance may not
be paid for.and could lapse.
If this happens, the mortgage
company will purchase a
"forced placed" policy
which is usually more ex-
pensive and features much
less coverage. Forced place,

Innovations help those

with arthritis stay active


The season of cleaning, gardening and golfing is upon us, but many with
arthritis avoid simple housework and outdoor activities for fear of
aggravating their condition. However, these activities can actually help
131390JS-F relieve some of the pain and stiffness associated with arthritis and there
are some innovative products that are available to help keep you out and
about. ______


"It is alwayvs
important for
people with
arthritis to
remain as active
as possible,"
said Dr. John


Klippel,
president and
CEO of the
0 Arthritis
iF Foundation.
"Exercise can
r lessen pain.
increase range of
movement,
T reduce fatigue
s and help them
feel better
overall."

Physical activity
can help ease
arthritis
symptoms by
keeping the
muscles around
| the joints strong
and more
Flexible. Ik can
also help prevent"-
|' further,
deterioration of
the bone and
cartilage.

Housecleaning is an example where someone with arthritis may benefit
from customized tools to make work easier.

Oreck offers a vacuum, the Oreck XL, that's lightweight and features a
special handle that helps reduce'stress and strain on hands, wrists and
elbows. .,

iA number of options are available to those' wanting to do some
gardening.

One product that can help is'the Bionic Gardening Glove, which helps
prevent loss of hand power allowing people to maintain better grip
strength. Fiskars" PowerGear line of hand pruners and loppers are also
helpful because their ergonomic design and special gear mechanism
helps increase cutting power.

Those heading to the driving range have a few extra items for the golf
bag that can help with their arthritis and maybe even their golf game.
Golf Pride's Whisper and Dual Durometer family of grips helps players
with arthritis relieve tension and joint pain, while giving them better
control over their club. Bionic also offers a golf glove with anatomical
relief pads in the palm and fingers that can help with clubcontrol.

"There are tools that can help make living with arthritis or other chronic
conditions much easier," adds Klippel. "Take advantage of them and get
active."-

No matter what your plans are, there is plenty of help available to help
you take on that extra work- and play.
