County passes new




lire assessment 4-1

Susan K. Lamb. . ,
Democrat Managing Editor -


- In a recessed hearing at
Suwannee High School in
Live Oak beginning at 5:15
p.m. that lasted less than
three hours Aug. 23 and ran
smoothly from beginning to
end, the Suwannee County
Commission passed a new
fire ordinance 4-1. The fire
service assessment will be at
85 percent of the original
proposed ordinance and will
be "fair and equitable" some
commissionerss said.
The motion to adopt "the
parcel methodology" and
that all new monies raised
through the new assessment
be used to bring the volun-
teer fire departments up to
par with training and equip-
ment was made by Commis-
sioner Rand) Hatch and sec-
onded by Commissioner
Douglas Udell just before 8
p.m. Voting for the motion
was Hatch, Udell, Commis-
sion Chairman Billyl
Maxwell and Commissioner
Ivie Fowler. Commissioner
Jesse Caruthers voted
against. A second motion by


Hatch, seconded by Udell
and voted the exact same
way was to adopt an en-
abling resolution to com-
bine parcels that are con-
tiguous (touch each other)
and are under common
ownership and that does not
exempt timberland from the
fire assessment.


Under this new ordi-
nance, parcels that meet the
above test will be combined
on an assessment roll held
only by the county, not the
property appraiser's office,
and will not affect the prop-
erty appraiser's assessments

tration is at 8 a.m. and the event be-
gins at 9 a.m. The theme for the
fundraiser this year is "Please Take
My Hand Not NI\ Life."
Director for the centers, Mary
Sue Fulghum, said the fund-raiser
brings in about half of the centers'
annual operating costs, and its suc-
cess is vital since the centers are
operated 100 percent by donations.
Participants can pick up a' regis-
tration form at the Live Oak center
at 112 Piedmont St. or at the Lake
City center at 227 S. W. Columbia
Ave. Participants are encouraged to
get forms now to get as many spon-
sors as possible and/or get extras to
give to friends, family and co-
workers.
Fulghum said participants aren't
sponsored per mile; s.ponso'rs can
give a flat amount.
Participants who wish to con-
tribute don't have to walk or run,
they can stand on the sidelines
cheering, or relaxing in a chair.
Food and drinks will be awaiting
participants after the \Walk Run.
Those who have 14 or more spon-
sors are eligible for prizes, including
restaurant and jewelry gift certifi-
cates and Wild Adventures passes.
Those who raise $150 or more will
receive a T-shirt with the "Take My
Hand, Not My Life" logo.

in any way nor does it com-
bine property on the property
appraiser's tax rolls.
Under the new assessment,
everyone will pay an assess-
ment, as many of the citizens
who spoke during the hearing
Tuesday night asked for. And,
under the new assessment
that will begin Oct. 1, citizens
can rest easy that fire service
will continue in the county,
alleviating the fears of many
that there would be no fire
service and insurance would
be non-existent or escalate.
The meeting began Aug. 16
and lasted more than six
hours before being recessed
until this week. During that
meeting, attended by more
than 400 citizens who ex-
pressed their outrage loud
and often over many issues,
control became an issue.
Many people left because of
the climate in the meeting, in-
cluding large business repre-
sentatives who expressed the
opinion the meeting was out
of control. The large majority
of those citizens did not at-
tend this week's meeting. But,
when the meeting began,
Chairman Maxwell let it be
known he would stand for no
outbursts and deputies would'
remove those who chose to
do so.
Public comment was re-
opened and a number of peo-
ple spoke. Some volunteer
fire fighters expressed the
need to pass the assessment
and not set any exemptions.
Another pointed out that just
that morning a triple-wide
mobile home had been saved
because of volunteers. That
home suffered minimal dam-
age after a refrigerator the
family had been notified the
day before was on recall
erupted in fire. One commer-
cial businessman said the
people in agriculture were
laughing because they would-
n't have. to. pay assessments

home yet because she doesn't
have a car seat," Fulghum
said.
SThe centers also provide
free pregnancy tests, counsel-
ing and education about the
development of unborn ba-
bies.
i "We have them as young as
13 years old coming in think-
ing they're pregnant," Ful-
ghum said.
; Fulghum said the centers
never encourage or do refer-
rals for abortions. Rather they
inform girls about alterna-
tives, such as adoption and
provide support -for having
the baby.
, "We don't give out medical
advice, but we do know that
the baby is a real person be-
cause the heart is beating,"
she said. "To stop that by
abortion is taking the baby's
life. It's not the quick, easy
fix of getting rid of a blob of
tissue."
SFulghum said that most
abortion clinics won't tell
@Vomen the truth about the
reality of life within them
simply because of the mon-
ey involved for the clinic.
However, the Pregnancy
Crisis Centers services are
free of charge.
"We're here because we'
care," she said.
'The centers teach women


What babies look like at each
stage of pregnancy and how
they are developing.
Fulghum held a model of a
10-week old, unborn baby in
her hand explaining that a lot
of babies are this large once
the woman finds out about
the pregnancy. Pointing to its
hands, feet and eyes she said,
"That doesn't look like a blob
of tissue to me. It's got every-
thing; it just needs to grow
and develop."
The center encourages
women to view videos that


teer fire departments, but what
we're looking for is fair and
equitable," he told the board.
O'Brien Volunteer Fire De-
partment Chief Donald Hayes
said he's not only a fire fighter
but a landowner, too. He sup-
ported the assessment and the
training that is currently being
given to volunteers to upgrade
the volunteers. Hayes said
without the fire service, land
prices would plummet. Hayes
said although timber owners
were asking to have their
lands exempted so the Florida
Division of Forestry could
handle their fires, there's no
good way to determine initial-
ly between a house fire and
timber fire because fires in
pine trees spread to homes
and/or businesses.
One man demanded to
know why the commission
wasn't spending what he said


was left over money from the
fire budget on the volunteers.
He had obtained a county
budget printout Aug. 8 that
showed about $110,000 left in
that budget. However, it was
pointed out to him the fiscal
year doesn't end until Sept. 30
and salaries and other expens-
es had to be paid from that
money.
After hearing all the testi-
mony, each commissioner had
an opportunity to express his
views before any motions or
votes were taken. Fowler, who
had said last week he would-
n't vote for new taxes, said
he'd gone back after the initial
meeting and spoken to many
of those he had earlier
promised he wouldn't vote for
new taxes. He said those vot-
ers had said to him they
wouldn't hold it against him if
he voted for the assessment


because it's "redistributed
funds." Fowler said the initial
assessment just wasn't fair to
anyone.
Caruthers said he hadn't
heard a lot at the meeting that
he agreed with. He said he
didn't like the unfairness of
the one acre verses the 160
acres and felt the county
should pay the fire budget out
of the county's general fund
for the next year and study the
issue more as he felt he didn't
have enough time to study the
issue. He said the county is
expected to have a little more
than $2 million left over after
the budget year and the mon-
ey could come from there.
Maxwell said he had "lost a
lot of sleep, agonized over,
and prayed about" the issue.
He said the board had to make
a decision, and it had hired
the best law firm in the state to


advise them on what to do, al-
though the assessment as writ-
ten wouldn't be fair to every-
one.
Udell said he had studied
the issue thoroughly and his
worry was that a school bus
would wreck and there would
be no trained people to cut the
injured out: He said the coun-
ty needs someone for that and
to respond to-fires at churches,
even though they don't pay the
assessment, or to the little old
lady whose mobile home may
be destroyed in a fire but her
life saved by the fire fighters.
"Nothing is ever totally fair,"
he added, and taking the mon-
ey from the general fund
would not be a smart'move.
Hatch said the board had at-
tended numerous workshops,
hired the best law firm in the
state to come up with the best
legal and fair assessment ordi-


nance possible. "It costs just
as much to put out one pine
tree on one acre as it does to
put out one pine tree" on larg-
er acreage, he stated. "The as-
sessment we had before was
fine before the Supreme Court
ruling" that changed all that,
he added. Hatch said the
banks would likely call in
loans, insurance would be un-
attainable and home and
acreage loans would be non -
existent if there is no fire ser-
vice in the county. "I wouldn't
sleep too well if that hap-
pened," he said. Hatch said he
had heard a lot of people say
they didn't want to pay their
fair share while others said
they didn't mind.

dures and baby development.
One such video features doc-
tors, who have performed
abortions in the past but no
longer do so, who are telling
women the harsh truths about
abortion.
Some of the information
given about abortion is the
health risks and mental and
emotional depression that
follows the procedure.
The centers also counsel
women and their families in
an effort'to build a support
system around the one preg-
nant. Pregnant women are en-
couraged to stay in school or
at woik and are provided re-
wards for doing so. The cen-
ters also do medical referrals
or referrals for any other ser-
vice needed they don't pro-
vide. If necessary, women
can be placed in a Shepherd-
ing Home, which will meet
direct needs.
All services are free of

sexual offenders who might
gain access to schools through
employment with outside ven-
dors.
Suwannee County School
Board Attorney Andy Decker
said the new requirements
deal with contractual person-
nel who are permitted on
school grounds when students
are present, who have direct
contact with students and who
have access to or control
school funds. Decker made
his comments during the regu-
lar School Board meeting this
week where the board dealt
with how the new law will af-
fect the local school system:
Contractual personnel is de-
fined as anyone who is com-
pensated by the district for
services provided. Such peo-
ple include food service ven-
dors, repair maintenance con-
tractors, office supply ven-
dors, office supply repair per-
sons and even fast-food deliv-
ery people.
Decker said even if the
school orders pizza for a staff
meeting when children are
present, that fast-food em-
ployee would need.to be fin-
ger printed prior to being al-
lowed into the schools.
While they do have to be
screened, volunteers, visitors,
mentors, chaperones or the
general public are not subject
to being fingerprinted.
The law requires contractu-
al personnel to meet level two
screening requirements,
meaning the person in ques-
tion must be fingerprinted and


be screened against the sexual
predator national registry be-
fore being allowed into the
schools. Fingerprints will be
sent to Tallahassee, and the
state will provide a report
whether that person has been
adjudicated or found guilty of
any number of violations ac-
cording to a list of about 45
crimes. The law also requires
the district to check and see if
the person' has been convicted
of a crime involving moral
turpitude.
"This is difficult, because
there's no list to determine or.'
define _iuch crimess" Decker
:,'i&d "For this we would d have
to make a case-by-case deter-
mination."
The school district must,
conduct the fingerprinting
process using its Originating
Agency Identifier (ORI)
Code. Individuals, companies
or vendors can't conduct fin-
gerprinting on their own. The
district can use the ORI code,
to submit the records to the
FDLE and get a report back. If
a person is listed on the sexu-
al predator list -- having been
found to have committed one
of the 45 crimes, he or she
will be told by school officials
not to enter school property.
Florida law already pro-
hibits a sexual predator from
working or volunteering
where children are. According.
to Florida Statutes, it is un-
lawful for any person who has
been convicted of a violation
of state law involving sexual
battery regardless of whether

adjudication has been with-
held, in which the victim of
the offense was less than 16
years of age, and where the
crime occurred on or after
Oct. 1, 2004, to reside within
1,000 feet of any school, day
care center, park or play-
ground.
School Board Personnel Di-
rector Dr. Bill Brothers said
screening can take place on
district property or at a. loca-
tion designated by the district.
The district will pay for em-
ployees to be re-fingerprinted
"tb get them into the new 'sys-
tem. but othei indi\ iduals and
x endorse in contractulI 'rela-
tionship with the district will
have to pay the cost. The ini-
tial cost for fingerprinting is
-$61, and annual renewal fees
to maintain the database are
$6. Additionally, after the first
five years, $30 will be paid to
the FBI for re-assessment.
Decker said some districts
are charging a one-time fee of
$100 to cover the initial fin-
gerprinting, renewals and re-
lated costs.
Decker said one problem
with the new requirements is
that vendors who deal with
many districts don't want to
have to be stuck paying the
$100 for every district.
"There's no state-wide
database at this time," Deck-
er said. "That may develop
down the road, but not ini-
tially,"
Decker said the district can
enter into a regional compact
where schools in the same re-


gion can share the informa-
tion through a common data-
.base to alleviate some of the
cost.
In addition to the hassle and
cost of the requirements,
Decker said a bigger problem
is monitoring who has been
cleared.
Some schools have a photo
ID badge system in which vis-
itors have driver's licenses
scanned to ensure they are
who they sa\ they are, and to
make sure they are cleared.
The system will print out an
ID badge so school ,piqi rnh,
will ensure that people walk-
ing do\ Ii, school"h'Wdl''tl"fe"rt-I
thorized to be there.
For Suwannee County, once
people are cleared, they will
get an authenticated or sealed
document from FDLE to pre-
sent to school officials along
with their driver's license.
This document will allow
them to pass at different cam-
puses.
In the event it's discovered
that a parent of a child in the
school system is found to be
on the sexual predator list,
that parent is not welcome on
school grounds.
Any individual or vendor
who is in a contractual rela-
tionship with the district
should call the School Board
at 386-364-2601 to schedule
an appointment for finger-
printing before Sept. 1.

OPINION





FOCUS

BY JACK FARIS


A bigger game
The great annual spectacle is underway. Pre-season
televised professional football games are already
whetting the appetites of millions of Americans who
are eager to witness countless hours of blitzes,
bootlegs and buttonhooks-all leading up to the game
of games, Super Bowl XL in February. By the time
the season officially kicks off Sept. 8, fans will have
enjoyed more than five dozen games.
The audience will no doubt include millions of
American small-business owners, their families and
their employees who, deservedly, find in the sport a
welcome break from the day-to-day challenges of
running a small firm. But this seemingly pleasurable
pastime could distract those business owners from
keeping their eyes on the ball \vhen a much more im-
portant contest gets underway in early October.
The hype and hoopla generated when Green Bay
squares off against Carolina on Oct. 3 will certainly
overshadow the opening season of the United States
Supreme Court, which begins its annual session ear-
lier that day by hearing oral arguments on cases it
will consider and rule upon the following spring. Not
to diminish the prominence of football, but the argu-
ments made before the Big Bench will ultimately
have a greater impact on the bottom lines ofAmeri-
canibusinesses than the audibles yelled at the line of
scrimmage.
While most of the news coverage of the Supreme
Court today centers on potential nominations of new
justices and social issues, small-business owners
should pay careful attention to the court's docket. A
significant number of the cases reviewed and ruled
upon concern matters that affect virtually every as-
pect of free enterprise.
Just recently, the Supreme Court upset decades of
standing property rights law by expanding the power
of local governments to use the Fifth Amendment of
the Constitution to condemn private property through
the process of eminent domain, and delivered that
property into the hands of another land-owner, who
promised to use it to boost "economic development."
In recent sessions, the High Court has also handed
down decisions that will make small employers liable
for age discrimination if they create an employment
policy that even unintentionally affects older work-
ers. Additionally, the Supreme Court ruled that inde-
pendent small-business truckers have no recourse
against states that want to impose even greater regu-
latory burdens on them than the federal government
has established.
These rulings come on the heels of past Supreme
Court sessions where justices have offered opinions
that instantly and almost permanently change the
rules of the game of entrepreneurship. Punitive dam-
age awards, pensions, taxation, product liability and
regulations of even the most mundane, nature are ap-
pearing on the court's docket with alarming frequen-
cy.
It's an unfortunate fact that most Supreme Court
justices, while experts in constitutional law, have vir-
tually no experience with, and little understanding of,
the trials ard tribulations associated with starting and
building a successful small business.
:It won't be nearly as, entertaining as televised
sports, but watching every play the court makes and
pointing out offside moves to Congress is a task that
small-business owners must undertake right away.
This game is for keeps.,

COMMENTARY

Heart pine pews and deep thinking


BIBLE VERSE
" It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are
hot consumed, because his compassion
fail not." Lamentations 3:22


By Dwain
Walden
I had just
turned the televi-
sion off a pro-
gram where
some fellow was
talking about
how. decadent
and ungodly our


nation has become and that we are in
the latter days.
I got into my car, turned on my ra-
dio and pushed the scanner button. It
stopped on one of those religious
rock stations where some fellow said
we are on the verge of a great spiritu-
al revival in this nation. Two opposite
ends of the spectrum, I would say.
And so I thought to myself, every-
one seems to have his agenda when it
comes to religion, and he's trying to
sell it in some fashion. What I real-
ized was, I've been hearing this same'
stuff since I was a small kid polish-
ing my Red Camels on heart pine
pews and singing all stanzas of "Just
As I Am." In fact, I sat so near the
church piano and heard that song so
much, it was the first song I learned
to play on the piano. The second was
"Cold, Cold Heart."
The fact is, times have always
been bad and they have always been
good. What's that famous line from
the novel "A Tale of Two Cities?"....
"These were the best of times, these
were the worst of times." I think
there always will be people who will
steal you blind and' those who will
find your lost wallet and return it
with all the cash still inside - which
may or may not have anything to do

On its 70th birthday, put

Social Security out of our misery


By Alex Epstein
This month marks the 70th birthday
of Social Security. In the program's old
age, many politicians are worried
about its health and debating about
how to cure it. One side, led by Presi-
dent Bush, says that Social Security is
in mortal peril, and must be saved via
"partial privatization." The other side
says that Social Security is just a little
sick, and needs only a little tinkering to
be restored to health.
Both sides, however, agree on one
absolute: Social Security should be
saved. While it may have financial
problems, they believe, some form of,
mandatory government-run retirement
program is morally necessary.
But is it?
Social Security is commonly por-
trayed as benefiting most, if not all,
Americans by providing them "risk-
free" financial security in old age.
This is a fraud.
Under Social Security, lower- and
middle-class individuals are forced to
pay a significant portion of their gross
income--approximately 12 percent--
for the alleged purpose of securing
their retirement. That money is not
saved or invested, but transferred di-
rectly to the program's current benefi-
ciaries--with the "promise" that when
current taxpayers get old, the income
of future taxpayers will be transferred
to them. Since this scheme creates no
wealth, any benefits one person re-
ceives in excess of his payments nec-
essarily come at the expense of others.
Under Social Security, every aspect
of the government's "promise" to pro-
vide financial security is at the mercy
of political whim. The government can
change how much of an individual's
money it takes--it has increased the
payroll tax 17 times since 1935. The
government can spend his money on
anything it wants--observe the long-
time practice of spending any annual
Social Security surplus on other enti-
tlement programs. The government
can change when (and therefore if) it
chooses to pay him benefits and how
much they consist of--witness the cur-
rent proposals to raise the age cutoff or
lower future benefits, Under Social Se-
curity, whether an individual gets


twice as much from others as was tak-
en from him, or half as much, or noth-
ing at all, is entirely at the discretion of
politicians. He cannot count on Social
Security for anything--except a mas-
sive drain on his income.
If Social Security did not exist--if
the individual were free to use that 12
percent of his income as he chose-his
ability to better his future would be in-
comparably greater. He.could save for
his retirement with a diversified, long-
term, productive investment in stocks
or bonds. Or he could reasonably
choose not to devote all 12 percent to
retirement. He might choose;to work
far past the age of 65. He might choose
to live more comfortably when he is
young and more modestly in old age.
He might choose to invest in his own
productivity through additional educa-
tion or starting a business.
How much, when, and in what form
one should provide for retirement is
highly individual--and is properly left
to the individual's free judgment and
action. Social Security deprives the
young of this freedom, and thus makes
them less able to plan for the future,
less able to provide for their retire-
ments, less able to buy homes, less
able to enjoy their most vital'years,
less able to invest in themselves.
And yet Social Security's advocates
continue to push it as moral. Why?
The answer lies in the program's ide-
al of "universal coverage"--the idea
that, as a recent New York Times edi-
torial preached, "all old people must
have the dignity of financial security"-
-regardless of how irresponsibly they
have acted. On this premise, since
some would not save adequately on
their own, everyone must be forced
into some sort of "guaranteed" collec-
tive plan--no matter how irrational.
Observe that Social Security's whole-
sale harm to those who would use their
income responsibly is justified in the
name of those who would not. The ra-
tional and responsible are shackled
and throttled for the sake of the irra-
tional and irresponsible.
Those who wish to devote their
wealth to saving the irresponsible from
the consequences of their own actions
should be free to do so through private


charity, but to loot the savings of un-
told millions of innocent, responsible,
hard-working young people in the
name of such a goal is a monstrous in-
justice.
Social Security in any form is moral-
ly irredeemable. We should be debat-
ing, not how to save Social Security.
but how to end it--how to phase it out
so as to best protect both the rights of
those who have paid into it, and those
who are forced to pay for it today. This
will be a painful task. But it \\ill make
possible a world in which Americans
enjoy far greater freedom to secure
their own futures.

LETTER TO

THE EDITOR
Dear Editor:
Suwannee County
Can you remember an incidence-
where the folks in Suwannee County)
did not bicker, fight and fuss over an
issue? It seems to me that the'
Suwannee Democrat is always anx-)
ious to print such nonsense. Could
we have more information on the
growth of Suwannee County? Surely,
you can find something interesting to,
print rather than a blow-by-blow de-
scription of the fighting of the Coun-
ty Commissioners and the rude re-;
marks made by folks attending the
meetings.
When I first moved to Suwannee
County over six years ago, I sub-
scribed to your paper. After several
years, I gave up reading the paper be-
cause I discovered that the Suwannee
Democrat printed the same stories
each week, i.e., the bickering of the
County Commissioners, etc.

with religion.
I learned a long time ago not to ar-
gue religion. When I get asked, I
might give my view, but if anyone
wants to challenge it, my typical re-
sponse might be ..."whatever."
Now both of these aforementioned
commentators could be right if we
break all of this down to the individ-
ual. For instance, some individuals
might very well be on the brink of
spiritual demolition while others
might just be breaking ground for a
new building. There's a lot more of
us than there used to be, so depend-
ing on where you are standing and
looking, you might find great evi-
dence for either of these views. As
was pointed out in the classic movie
"Jaws," it's only an island if you
look at it from the sea.
Perception.
I think religion is alive and well in
our nation. When I was growing up
and we got our first television, we
could only pick up three channels.
Occasionally there would be a re-
ligious program on Sunday like Oral
Roberts.
Nowadays, with cable, we have 24-
hour preaching and 24 hour gospel-

range from evangelists dressed up
like Roy Rogers and Dale Evans to
faith healers whose high voltage
from heaven is knocking people over

der how many in the audience have
actually met the preacher.
And when I was growing up, out-
reach programs were non-budget
items. Today, youth groups arp
deeply involved in Centrifuges, spir-
itual camps of a wide assortment,
choirs and various associations de-
signed specifically for them.
They travel places on buses and
come back full of purpose.
We have lots of denominations of
faith and some of.them are so big
there are subsets of theology within
them. And sometimes they get st
odds with each other.
We have some churches that prao-
tice what they preach and actually`
get out and do stuff as a visible co�r-
gregation of believers. We have
some who might just send money.
We have "high churches" and "other
churches." We have fundamental-
ists, moderates, liberals and some
that have fascinations with snakes.,'
Now I would never begin to sug-
gest who is right and who is wrong
when it comes to religion - except
maybe with that thing about the
snakes. Simply put, I know what
works for me and what won't work.
But I don't think freedom of reli-
gion in our country has taken serious
hits.
And as I have summed up in some
other tnusings on religion, I just
hope God grades on the curve. And
please forgive me if those people
with the snakes are the ones doing it
right.

When I was growing up, I
learned to ride in Virginia.
Virginia is the home of fox
hunting in the United States
and a bastion of the English
kind of riding. So, horrors!,
I learned to ride English. I
don't get the big deal?? Rid-
ing is riding. It doesn't mat-
ter what kind of saddle your
butt is glued to as long as
it's glued.
The basic difference be-
tween English and Western
riding is the size of the sad-
dle.. An English saddle


weighs about 20 pounds and
the average Western saddle
weighs a lot! The ones most
favored in these parts weigh
about 60 pounds.
We have four of those big
boys and I can't lift one high
enough to saddle my horse.
Now I know, you're sup-
posed to sling it, stirrups,
cinch and breast collar a-
flapping, up on the horse in
one smooth motion. Well, I
haven't mastered the art of
the slinging yet and my
horse is absolutely terrified


OBITUARY


of the flapping parts. This is
.okay by me. It means some-
one else has to saddle my
horse. What a bummer!
Another basic difference
between an English and a
Western saddle is the horn.
Western saddles have a
handy dandy handle to hang
on to. In case of emergency,
grab horn. Actually, the horn
wasn't designed as a handle.
It was designed to dally up.
Translated, that means to
wrap the rope after one has
lassoed a steer to hang on to
the jumping, wriggling crea-
ture. Pretty handy, just keep
the thumb out of the way.
The horn is not necessary to
English riding and would re-
ally get in' the way going
over a five-foot fence. Ooof!
The two best-known types
of English saddles are the
hunt-seat ahd dressage. The
hunt-seat is deeper, with
larger knee rolls. The dres-
sage saddle is .flatter. Hunt-
seat usually calls for shorter
stirrups while dressage rid-
ers prefer A longer stirrup.
Western saddles come in


Healthy Dozen List


Toddlers - part 3


By Meredith Taylor
County Extension Director
The Suwannee Extension
Service provides the third of a
series of three articles as pa4t
of "The Year of the Healthy
Child" agenda. The Surgeon
General, Dr. Richard Car-
mona, is looking at ways to
keep children healthy and safe.
He states, "Each phase of a
child's life has its own series of
potential hazards, and we're
trying to shine a light on pre-
venting those illnesses, in-
juries, and deaths that are pre-
.%er7able. Byiapp.reciqting what
parents do e\er' a' and get-
ting the best infdriffiion out to
parents and children, I hope
every child will grow up
healthy, happy, and able to
reach their potential."
The Surgeon General's
Tips to Keep Toddlers
Safe and Healthy
- continued
9. Fully immunize your
child. Make sure your child
gets all immunizations on
time. Immunizations have pre-
vented death and disease for
millions of children through-
out the United States and the
rest of the world. Talk with
your child's primary health
provider about keeping up to
date on all vaccinations.
10. Learn child first aid and
CPR. Be prepared. Know how
to call for help, including poi-
son control. The national toll-
free line for poison control is
800-222-1222. Also, learn
child first aid and CPR. We
hope you will never have to


use these skills. But if you do,
the life you save could be your
child's.
11. Practice prevention and
safety. Teach your child safety
tips, including always swim-
ming with a buddy, and wear-
ing a bicycle helmet. Teach
your child about sun safety, in-
cluding wearing a hat outdoors
and frequently applying SPF30
sunscreen. Also, a growing
child will come into potential-
ly dangerous situations or may
become separated from a par-
ent or caregiver. Be sure your
older.toddler know s his or het
name. parents' names,' and
phone number. Help him or her
to recognize police and fire of-
ficials as trusted individuals,
while raising caution to other
strangers. Get your child's fin-
gerprints taken and keep a re-
cent photograph in your wallet.
12. Have fun. Hug, talk,
read, explore, and play togeth-
er. Parenting is the most,diffi-
cult job in the world. As much
as you love your child, it can
be stressful to be a parent. Be
patient, manage your stress,
and ask for help. All parents
sometimes feel overwhelmed
and frustrated as they tackle
the challenges involved with
parenting. If you feel so
stressed that you feel unable to
cope with the demands of par-
enting, get help.

English riding is a lot
more critical of position,

riding. But having learned to
ride English, I can honestly
say, I learned a lot of tech-
niques and riding basics that
many Western riders just
don't get exposed to.
The first time I rode West-
ern, I had someone toss one
of his two-ton saddles up on
my dressage-trained gelding
and off we went on a! trail

spoiled by the comfort and
perceived safety of the
Western rigging. And as
long as I can get'someone
else to saddle up for me, I'm'

_ Have you heard: Pale skin is coming Back in


Spirit


.Sarcasm


BVANESAFUT


This summer I opted not to
lay out in an effort to protect
.my skin from the sun's
harmful rays. I made a pact
with myself in late spring, so
I'd not have to break the
habit during summer. (It's
always easier not to start a
!habit than to break one.)
I admit, it was pretty hard
;to let go of that bronzed look
.this summer, but I am
healthier for it. While many
people this summer - many
of them women who claim to
want healthy skin and want
to retain their beauty for as
long as they can -.were


baking, I was giving my skin
a chance to heal itself from
previous damage and pro-
longing early wrinkles by at
least one year. And, my sis-
ter-in-law made the com-
ment that pale skin is com-
ing back in. Ya know, she's
right. Have you bronzed,
leathered babes seen any
models lately? Aren't the
girls in LA the ones who are
supposed to set the trends
anyway? And remember
Snow White? She was a pale
chic, and she made it into the
fairy tales, didn't she?
Turns out, I'm a pretty


smart girl. After surfing the
web, I've found so many
confirmations that I did the
right thing this summer.
Michael Appleman in his
article "Sun Damage: Pre-
venting and Treating" said a
tan is proof that UV has
damaged some of the skins
cells (www.burnsur-
vivorsttw.org). CBN News
Producer Darla Sitton in her
article "Skin Cancer Wakeup
Call: New. Test Pinpoints
Sun Damage" said one mil-
lion Americans will find out
they have skin cancer this
year. People who have had
five significant sunburns
double their risks of devel-
oping skin cancer. Beaches
fill up every year with those
who have been cautioned
about the sun's harmful rays.
It's clear people are not lis-
tening (www.cbn.com).
I wonder if sunbathing


kills brain cells too? It's
amazing how we are willing
to sacrifice our health for
our appearance.
Though there are guys
who obsess about this, too,
I'm mostly talking to the
girls when I say if you
choose to bake, you do so at
your own risk. A tanned face
now, means a pruned face
later. Not to mention skin
cancer, skin damage from
the sun can result in early
wrinkles, blotches, sagging
skin, rough skin tone and
cataracts -among other
things. What good is it to
have a healthy bronzed glow
now if it results in wrinkles
later?
My mother-in-law says
when we're young we abuse
our bodies, and when we get
old we pay for it. This is true
mainly because young, peo-
ple usually can't grasp the


correlation between actions
and consequences. A young
generation takes risks be-
cause they have an I'm-
gonna-live-forever attitude.
Those of us who are in our
late twenties, early thirties
need to see the signs of the
times (and those of you tee-
ny boppers need to realize
you'll be our age very:
soon!). We're not spring
chickens anymore or sum-
mer babes. Let's act our age
and take care of our bodies.
Being healthy is cool; dam-
aging your skin is not.
That healthy glow is really
not healthy at all. Women, if
you're really concerned
about beauty, realize it can
only be achieved by being
healthy. And the healthier
you are 'now, the longer
you'll be able to retain your
beauty later.
It may be' hard to be seen


at the beach with pale skin
alongside your bronzed
friends, but maybe some of
your brilliance will rub off
on them. Why get sucked
into the everybody's-doing-
it hole. Is it really that hard
to be different? Instead of
making a fashion statement,
just make a statement. One
that says: ya know, this is
how God created me and I
like it.

According to Head Football
Coach Bobby Bennett, Columbia
has a tough defense.
"The front three on Columbia's
defense are good. They have a:
good nose tackle and some big
kids on defense: The defensive
backs are good. Defense is their
strength." Bennett said.
Columbia has a new coach who
is really their old coach. Danny
Greene, gone for one year, is bal t
again. Suwannee Cowuty knod\
ho% good Greene is.
Offensively, Columbia is not as
strong as they are defensively, ac-
cording to Bennett.
"Otffensivel. they have some
speed. I don't think they're going
to throw much," said Bennett.
To combat Columbia's tough
defense, Bennett hopes his team's
Conditioning will outlast the Tigers'.

IT'S GOOD FOR YOUR GAME


Hitting the draw

By T.J. TOMASI
Universal Press Syndicate
T here are several things you must do if the
draw (a ball that curves right-to-left for a
right-handed player) is your shot of choice,
-'and it all begins with your setup.
SThe idea is to create the correct geometry at,
address and then allow that geometry to work by
simply swinging down the line of start rather
than the target line.
First, aim your club face at the target, then
align your body to the right of target in a slightly
closed position. Because you've pulled your right
Foot back, adjust your ball position by moving.it
forward about one ball width in your stance.
SAt this point, your club face points where you
want your ball to finish (the target), and your
body points in the direction you want the ball to
start (line of start).
Next, swing your left arm across your chest,
allowing a bit of forearm rotation so that your
left wrist and forearm form a straight line at the
top'of your swing with no bowing or bending of
the hand.
Most golfers have trouble hitting a draw
because the club face is open at the top of the
swing. In the photos, you can see that a cupped
left wrist opens the club face (first photo) while a
flat left wrist provides a face position that's
square (second photo), a condition necessary to
curve the ball right-to-left.
With your face in the correct position at the
top of your swing, you can make a downswing
along your shoulder line that results in a soft
draw. Your finish reflects a fully released club
head with your club head pointing left of the tar-
get.
Reminder: Griping the club too tightly at
address will prevent the correct wrist set at the
top of your swing and will also ruin the release of
your forearms and wrists, so keep your pressure
at about five on a scale of 10.
To produce the right-to-left curve of the draw
shot, you'llhave to deliver an aggressive blow
where the toe is rotating over the heel of your
club head. Note that this is not done by flipping'
your wrists at the ball, but by allowing the
momentum of your club head to rotate your fore-
arms, pulling the right over the left through
-impact.
"- The characteristic marking of the draw swing
is in the finish, with the back of your right hand
-looking at the sky and the shaft of your club tilt-
Ped to the left of the target.
'Three keys to the draw
S1. Set up correctly, thep take the club away
along your foot line and let geometry do its job."
'*-2: At the top: The back of your left wrist is in
line with the forearm.
S3. At the finish: Your right forearm and hand
are on top of your left with your right-hand
lkuckles to the sky, indicating a full release of
Sthe hands and arms through the hitting zone,
.with the toe of the club rotating over the heel.
SThe.club is tilted away from the target line with
\ th1 club head pointing well left of the target.

Slow play just






won't go away


By GLENN SHEELEY
Cox News Service

Atlanta
Mike Reid, a Champions
Tour player at age 51,
suggested a decade ago
at a Players Championship
meeting that a shot clock was
the answer. Put one behind
every green and force lagging
players to pull the trigger in
time or face a buzzer in their
backswing.
"It was a joke," Billy
Andrade said, "but he was kind
of serious. He wanted to see
guys get their act in gear."
"I guess it was just my puck-
ish humor coming out,.because
we were near April and the
NCAA basketball tournament,"
said Reid, who competed at
Baltusrol recently as the
Senior PGA champion.
But here's what's no joke. In
2005, scientists can make the
golf ball fly out of sight by
adding titanium, but they still
can't make tour players get the
lead out.
More evidence surfaced at
the 18th tee at the PGA
Championship, where more
than a hole was open in front of
the group that contained slow-
play poster boy Ben Crane.
When Crane, a two-time PGA
Tour event winner, fidgeted
and fussed over the ball, taking
52 seconds to launch his drive
- compared to 19 seconds from
John Daly hours before - hot,
sweaty fans behind him were
groaning.
"Hey, while we're young,"
one said. "Hit the ball."
"Geez, you're putting' me to.
sleep," another said.
S"It's just getting ridiculous,"
said Andrade, who claims a
lethargic playing partner in
the 1996 U.S. Open was so irri-
tating that Andrade made a few
late bogeys that cost him a spot
in the 1997 Masters.
"We had a little chat after-
ward," Andrade said.
The most recent ugliness
came in June at the Booz Allen
Classic, when South Africa's
Rory Sabbatini played ahead of
partner Crane, holing out
before he even reached the
green.
"He's one of my best friends
on tour," Stewart Cink said,
"but he needs to play faster,
and he knows it."
While Crane says he's trying,
Sthe numbers don't lie. He even
took 28 seconds Friday just to
hack a ball out of rough. The
good news? The Bible'
Scriptures stuffed into Crane's
yardage book are read only at
idle times, not before he hits,
as one player had heard.
"That's absurd," Crane said.
What's the solution? What if
a pace monitor were stationed
on every hole, with the authori-
ty to add a stroke to a guilty
player's score, possibly even
without warning, using on-the-
scene observations, not merely
a timefigure, which often
hides the blame?
"It would scare players,"
Paul Azinger said. "It would
scare me, and I'm a fast play-
er."
With so much money avail-
able on the PGA Tour these
days, even the $20,000 fine for


CURTIS COMPTON / Cox News Service
Ben Crane, celebrating his win at the 2003 BellSouth
Classic in Atlanta, has developed a reputation as one of
golf's slowest players.


"(Ben Crane) is one of
my best friends on tour,
but he needs to play
faster, and'he knows it."
STEWART CINK

10 clock violations, as incurred
last year by Brent Geiberger, is
fairly meaningless. Still, veter-
an Jay,faas adds: "That still
would be a pretty tough check
to write. It's not like it's 20
grand for a new TV or stereo."
Strokes are the only serious
deterrent, the pros say, espe-
cially if dispensed on the spot
by an independent observer.
Getting the frugal PGA Tour to
agree to such an expense is a
separate issue.
"Nobody wants to get a
penalty stroke; I know that,"
Cink said. "I can't say it would
fix all the problems, but it's a
lot easier to take a fine than a
penalty stroke."
Although the PGA Tour on
paper beefed up its official poli-
cy last year to supposedly
apply a one-stroke penalty if a
player does not speed up after a
first warning, the plan obvi-


ously isn't working.
Typically, a player speeds up
when on the clock, but many
times the damage already has
been done to the oe field.
As it stands, when a three-
some is put on the clock -
.rather than the guilty player
nabbed - it puts pressure on
everyone.
"That's why a lot of the fast
players get mad," Tim Herron
said, "because now they're try-
ing to speed up more when
they're already fast,. so they're
playing-out of their game. ,
Then if you happen to need
more time for a trouble shot,
you might not feel you can take
it."
Azinger would love to see
someone drop the hammer on
violators but fears it might cre-
ate "an abuse of power."
"I could see that happening
if the guy hits it off line and
he's got a situation," Azinger
said. "There's times when it's
OK for a guy to take longer
than his time. You can have a
justifiable bad time."
What can't be justified, they
Essay, is for a few players to ruin
the product.
"There's about a dozen or 15
players who are notorious,"
Cink said. "They know who to
watch."

"Camp was very beneficial to us. Hopefully we
will win the fourth quarter," Bennett said.
Bennett is also hoping to be able to protect the,
passer. Columbia has a good pass rush. To win,
Bennett said the Dogs will need to be able to,
throw the ball.
"Defensively, we're going to be okay," Bennett
said. "We're going to have to do a good job pro-
tecting to get some throws off. Columbia expects


to get you with pressure. We need to keep the
pressure off."
Bennett spoke about the Wakulla game at the
recent Suwannee Quarterback Club meeting.
"Overall, the second half was decent," Ben-
nett said. "In the first half, we didn't do a very
good job of covering. We've got to get better.
We wanted to see a good thrower and I think
we saw one; We made some personnel changes
and I expect a great effort Friday against Co-
lumbia."

Just keep me away from power tools


Derek Maul.
derekmaul@gmail.com,
Sunbelt Newspapers
My credentials as a
handyman - or lack thereof
- are already well-docu-
mented in this space. We all
know I am not Home and
Garden-TV material.
Not that that stops us at
Maul Hall.
Our bathroom is the latest
project. It is amazing how
quickly linoleum, cabinets,
sinks, tile, and even dry-
wall can disappear when
you are married to a danger-
ously enthusiastic tool-
woman who finds demoli-
tion especially satisfying.
Stuff does not go back up
quite so easily. It is remark-
able, however, how quickly
average homeowners can
learn. If necessity is the
mother of invention, then
three plumbing contractors
in succession failing to
show up is the mother of, "It
can't be that hard; I'll just
do it myself."
That would be "herself,"


of course. All I did was
make several trips to the
hardware store, carefully re-
view our homeowner's in-
sirance policy, and enjoy
the following priceless
quote from our incredulous
son: "Oh my gosh, .Dad, I
can't believe you're letting
mama use a blow-torch."
Fact is, you don't "let" a
woman with a lighted blow-
torch do anything. It's more
like that joke: "What does a
woman with a lighted blow-
torch do?" The answer, of
course, is, "Anything she
wants."
My wife's tile-work in the
shower is incredible, de-
tailed and precise; the new
backer-board is seamless;
the plumbing not only
works, it looks great. The
cabinets are still in our
garage, as are the new sinks,
and the floor is waiting in
another box. We even have a
large rectangular hole in the
wall full of glass blocks.
If you program in the fact
that the first fateful tile.


came loose back in January,
then we are well on the way
to a successful project, and
hope to be brushing teeth
back at our end of the house
again by Thanksgiving -
2005.
\ Somehow though, even
with such a fine example from
my tool-empowered spouse,
handyman work still tends to
cause me trouble. I tried pres-
sure-washing the house, but as
usual with something I have
never done before, the learn-
ing curve was exceptionally
steep.
"Be careful," a friend
warned me, "if you get too
close you can take the paint
right off." He doesn't know
the half of it. The one I was
using removes stucco too.
I found out fairly quickly
that you can't pressure-wash
a hibiscus, that screening
doesn't do a lot to keep wa-
ter out of an open window,
and that our cat doesn't like
to be disturbed during his
morning nap on the porch.
Before long I had also es-


i


tablished how easy it is to
punch a hole in the soffit.
I also discovered that,
once you clean the first
three inches of a sidewalk,
you're pretty much commit-
ted to completing the entire
thing.
Bottom line turns out to
be that I can't accomplish
too much in the way of ex-
tensive damage with a pres-
sure washer on the outside
of the house. Give me a
lawnmower, a leaf-blower, a
garden hose, maybe a vacu-
um cleaner on the inside.
Those are my kind of pow-
er-tools.
As for the bathroom; I've
been a big help hauling out
debris, carrying boxes of
tile, strapping backer-board
to the roof of my car, mak-
ing coffee. Fact is, there's
been enough in the way of
demolition already.

Seeds from The Sower
Michael A. Guido, Metter, Ga.
Years ago some experts were sent to Australia to explore
the possibilities of gold being found there. They released a
lengthy bulletin that gold was in a certain section, but no
one was interested.
One day some shepherds came to town with gold.
"Where did you find it?" begged the people. "Upcountry,"
they replied. And the gold rush was on;
Our talking about the gospel treasure doesn't always
cause others to search for it. But if they see the gospel
nuggets in our lives, they'll want it.
Every Christian should stand out like a piece of gold
against a rough background. Do you make others want to
become a Christian by the life you live?

Difficult Questions


Some questions that are often
asked are, "Why do bad
things happen to good
people?" and "How could
God let this happen?" Surely,
these are difficult, if not
impossible questions to
answer, especially for.
someone who has just
experienced a tragic event.
And although it is ridiculous
for us to think that we will
never encounter problems in our
lives, we still have the tendency to
wonder why certain bad things
happen. It seems that we more
often' question God for the
seemingly bad things that happen to us, but


neglect to praise or thank Him for all
of the good in our lives. Prayer
is as important in our lives
during good times as it is in
difficult times.
It increases our faith and
builds a relationship with our
Creator. Because we cannot
truly know why God permits
certain unpleasant events to
happen, and in order to have
peace in our hearts, we should
focus on what we do know.
God is our Heavenly Father,
and He wants us to love and
trust Him.


Give yourself to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will help you;
Good News Bible Psalm 37:5

Live Oak Learners 4-H
Group has formed a robotics
team, RoboDogs, to learn
about building and program-
ming LEGO robots that will be
used in the FIRST LEGO
League Competition this fall.
FIRST LEGO League is an in-
ternational robotics competi-
tion for teams of six to 10 chil-
dren ages 9-14. The competi-
tion requires the team to build
and program, in eight weeks, a
LEGO Mindstonns Robot to
complete a series of tasks for-
points. In addition, each team
also gives a research presenta-
tion, has a technical interview
and is judged on its teamwork
and team spirit. For more in-
formation, visit www.firstle-
goleague.org and www.us-
first.org.
The actual project will be-
gin in September. Florida has
both district and state competi-
tions. The state competition is
typically held early in January
at Florida Institute of Technol-

Lightning Season is here, and you need our protection:

SURGE PROTECTION PROGRAM: This
program is aimed at helping to protect members
homes and sensitive electronic equipment from. ,
lightning strikes and other types of power surges
and spikes. Power surges are sudden powerful
increases in voltage which can damage or destroy
household appliances and electronics like , computers,
televisions, telephones, and more. Power surges or spikes can be
caused by lightning strikes, birds, animals and trees interfering with
power lines.

This package includes a surge protection device which attaches to the
base of the electric meter to reduce high voltage spikes and surges before
they enter the home. An additional level of protection is provided from
surge suppressers to be used inside the home. This kit is designed to offer
a basic level of protection for a household. Obviously, however, specific
needs will vary from family to family and members enrolled in this
program can lease additional surge protectors to suit their individual
requirements.

The cost of the basic package is $6.00 per month, with a one time $120.00
installation fee. The installation fee covers properly grounding your house
and installing the protection device within your meter base.

You are obligated to participate in this program for a minimum
three years.
Call 362-2226 for details.

Hokies on the hot seat


A 11 eyes ', ill be on quarterback M arc usaVick as Virginia
Tech tries to defend is -tlanuc Coast Conference
championship and contend for a national title this season.
Mlan. expected one of the Big East interlopers to end Florida
State's strarnglehold on the league on he n last year, and the pre-'
season favorite was Miami. But after knocking oIf si \h-ranked
West Virginia 19-13, on the strength of a 74-yard blocked field-
goal return for a touchdown, the Hokies went on an:eight-game
winning streak, culminaung in a 16-10 victory over Miami to end
the regular season and give Virginia Tech theACC championship
and a BCS bowl bid.
Although the Hokies lose five important defensive starters, they
won't be able to sneak out of the pack like last year. The defensive
unit should remain solid, but Miami is still Miami, and the rest of
the newly formed Coastal Division will be taking their best shots
at the Hokies.

alienating football fans across the Southeast.
More than three %,ears after bolting the Linisersity of
Florida for the Washington Redskins and the chance to see if his
,style would \\ork in the NTL. Spurner comes back to the
Southeastern Conference. Aid much to the dismay of Gator
Nation, he'll be prowling the sideline at South Carolina's
Williams-Brice Stadium, not Florida Field.
Absent from coaching for a season after spending only 32
games with the Redskins, Spurrier was the overwhelming favorite
of Florida fans to return when Ron Zook was fired following an
embarrassing loss to Mississippi State mid\.a\ through last season.
After deciding not to pursue a return to Gaines\ ille. Spurrier
Replaced his good friend. Lou Holrz. at South Carolina
' Justas he tormented anyone associated - ith the naval Tennessee
and Georgia programs dunng a 12-year run at Flonda that included
six conference championships, Spurrer % ill get under the skin of
the Gators. Itjust won't be this year. This %iill be a painful
rebuilding season for a Gamecock squad that finds itself in college

PAGE 6C * SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 2005


362-1734 CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE 1-800-525-4182


Dear Classified Guys,
I thought that banishing all smokers to
the far end of the parking lot was
unfair, but my company's new "no-
smoking" policy is downright evil. As
of Friday, there's a new company poli-
cy that requires us to quit smoking at
work and home within 12 months or
find new employment. To cushion the
blow, they offered to enroll us in a
stop-smoking program. But the last
time I tried to quit, I gained 20 pounds.
My first thought is to find a new job,
but as I check the ads, I see some
companies advertising for non-smok-
ers. What should'l do, quit smoking
and gain weight, or look for a
new job and chance finding
the same problem at the
next company?
0 * a
Carry: I'm sure it seems like
your company is butting in where they
don't belong, but your situation is one
that many employees have faced.
Cash: The trend ofbusinesses trying
to limit their employees from nloking
started about ten years ago. The idea
came about when health care costs start-
ed soaring and companies looked for
1ay s to lower their preniunms. It rumrns
out that that smokers cost employ ers
more n health benefits than non-,mokers.
almost 1500 per \ ear for each enplo\ ee

Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


- . -, . c.- I - 1.T '


according to some surveys.
Carry: So much like your company,
businesses started requiring their work-
ers to quit the habit. It's actually more
cost effective for them to offer stop-
smoking programs than pay the i
increased health benefits.
Cash: Banning smokers'from
employment did not violate any discrim-
nation acts at the nime since It r as con-
sidered a Idfest le choice. Although
since then, some 29 states ha\e adopted
law s to project � workers from smoking
discrnminadon
Carry: If \ our area has n ot adopted
such la s, it is posltble that iou can
encounter tuis problem \ Ith another


employer.
Cash: But before you quit your job,
you may consider the idea of giving up
smoking. What seems like a disturbing
company policy, could actually be a
great opportunity.
Carry: Since you've already tried quit-
ting once before, you obviously consid-
ered it worthwhile. Take advantage of
the ne% colnpany program. Not only
could it change N our hie. but Nou don't t
hase to look for a new job.
Cash: There are methods to quitting
smoking \% Rhout gaimng those 20
pounds. But \\ ho knows. if too man\
people gain \\eight. may be N our
comnpanm ill put in a gy m'


Smoke Screen
* Smoking can be costly to more than
just your health. Businesses lose mil-
lions every year due to costs associated
with employees who smoke. Surveys
estimate that smokers take more than
twice the sick days than their non-
smoker counterparts costing millions in
lost production. Increased health care
costs and added workman's compensa-
tion claims make the idea of a smoke-
free staff rather enticing.

Teen Smoking
What is the best way to stop smok-
ing? Don't start. Each day more than
4,000 teens try smoking, according to
the American Cancer Society. Almost
half of them become daily smokers.
Talk to your children before they get
started. Tobacco ise can stant by age 11
with many\ children becoming addicted
by 14 earss old. It's recommended to
start discussions with your kids around
age 5 or 6 and continue talking \ ilh
them about tobacco use throughout
high school.

Got a question, funny story, or just want to give
us your opinion? Let us hear it. Leave a mes-
sage toll-tree at (888) 242-3644 or send to: P.O.
Box 8246, New Fairfield. CT 06812.


Smoke Free
The other da\ I ran into an old
friend and fellow business owner
that I hadn't seen in years. As we
caught up on recent events-, we final-
Iv got around to discussing our busi-
nesses
I told him that 1 was considering
instlitutinig a ne" no-smoking policN
and \%as looking for,\ard to seeing
the results.
He quickly interrupted and told
me that he had to sell his company
shortl after instituting a similar
policy
When I asked him \ hy he replied.
'W\thout nicotine. all the employees
were too cranky to w\ork \w ith."

rIFn MTi AULUOi' strategies: What parents Uan .. .. bN .st stDenL sO Pcess


Acquiring reading strategies: What parents can do to boost student success


(ARA) - With students'
achievements now firmly
tied to high-stakes testing, it
is more important than ever
for parents to help motivate
their children to read, not
just during the summer
break but all year long.
Reading strategies allow
kids to understand their
textbooks, complete
homework and even follow
test directions properly. By
understanding the individual
reading strategies a child
needs to learn, and
becoming an active
participant in acquiring
these skills, parents can help
pave the way for ongoing
academic success.
Research shows "the
importance of the role
parents play' in providing
children with early language
and literacy experiences that
foster reading development
."'(Center for the
Improvement of Early
Reading Achievement
(CIERA) (2001). Put
Reading First: The Research
Building . Blocks for
Teaching Children to Read.
Jessup, MD: National
Institute for Literacy at ED
Pubs).
National standards are a
good place to' start in
understanding the skills each
child needs to acquire at a
given age. The International
Reading Association (IRA)
Web site lists the standards
for English language arts
developed by both the IRA.
and the National Council of
Teachers of English. Visit
the Web site at
www.reading.org and type
the keywords "language arts
standards" into the search
box. Parents can also use
free resources, such as those
found on Curriculum
Associates' Web site
(www. curriculumassociates.
com).. to view detailed
reading skills as described in.
iCurriculum - Associates'
program STARS (Strategies
to Achieve Reading Success)
and to download sample


activities.
Also, request that your
school use a reading
assessment in the beginning
of the year and communicate
the assessment results to
you. Traditionally at-risk
students have been tested in
reading by a diagnostician.
Today a three-step approach
within the classroom is
possible -- and
recommended
empowering the teacher to
differentiate instruction for
ALL students:
1. Assess to identify the
strategies students have
mastered, and those needing
to be reinforced.
2. Tailor instruction to
teach or strengthen
strategies based on students'
individual needs.
3. Re-assess to measure
progress and plan the next
instructional steps. This
method guides ..students
through their trouble spots
and is effective in producing
successful readers.
An example of this
approach was used in Sky
Ranch Elementary School in
Oklahoma City, OK.
Teachers used the three-step
process with 69 students in
grade five. The students not
only gained an average of
two grade levels in one
school year, but the school
also had a . 90 percent
passing rate on the state's
PASS. (Priority Academic
Student Skills) test, earning
it the rank of second highest
among 20 district
elementary schools.
Kids love doing activities
with their parents, so you
can help them improve their
. reading skills at home by
visiting the library and
joining them in reading or
discussing the books they
choose. Since different types
of text are read in different
ways, encourage your
children to-read a varietyy of-
genres: biographies, folk
tales, poems, articles and so
on.
Knowing what words


mean does not necessarily
lead to . actual
comprehension of the text,
so keep in mind 14 key
strategies for reading
comprehension:
* Finding the main idea
* Recalling. facts and
details
* Understanding sequence
Recognizing cause and
effect
* Comparing and
contrasting
* Making predictions
* Finding the meaning of.
words through context
* Drawing conclusions
and making inferences
* Distinguishing between
fact and 'opinion
* Idemif.ing author's
purpose
* Interpreting figurative
language
* Reading pictures (grades


1-2)
* Distinguishing bevteen
real and make-believe
(grades 3-4)
* Summarizing (grades 4-
8)
"Research indicates that
effective or expert readers
are strategic. This means
that they have purposes for
their reading and adjust their
reading to each purpose and,
for each reading task.
Strategic readers use a
variety of strategies and
skills as they construct
meaning."(Paris, S.G.,
Wasik, B.A, & Turner, J. C.
(1991). The development of
strategic readers. In R.'Barr,
M.L.Kamil, P. Mosenthal, &
P.D. Pearson (Eds.).
Handbook of. reading
research (Vol. 2, pp. 609-.
640). New York: Longman).
Help your child practice


these strategies by asking
them questions. For
example, to help them find
the main idea of a piece ask
them "What' was the
poem/story mostly about?"
Or, to have -your child
examine cause and effect,
ask "What happened and
why?" You can also 'have
your child retell the story in
terms of chronological
events or as a summary.
When you're , asking
reading comprehension
questions, use short reading
passages as your material so
that your child can
concentrate on the strategy
rather than- the text or
unfamiliar words. As kids
use the strategies, explain
why their answers are
correct or incorrect so that:
they get a better
understanding of what. they


are doing.
You can also help children
improve their strategy skills
through "think alouds." That
simply means you verbally
,walk through the process
that you used to arrive at the
answer. 'For example, to
model prediction, you could
say, "I think thisbook will
be about a frog who has
dinner because the title is
'Froggy Eats Out."' When
your child seems
comfortable . with the
process, have them do their
o%% n think alouds.
' By understanding what is
required of young readers
and how to help, you'll arm
yourself -.w' ith - the
information needed- 'to
enable kids to overcome
learning pitfalls and gain
confidence and success.

especially if they have not taken tips:
the time :to revise their family
budget. Review Your Benefits


Expectant mothers often
spend more time decorating. the
nursery than evaluating how
their growing family will impact
their health benefits. In! fact, a
new national survey conducted
by Aetna and the Financial
Planning Association (FPA)
found that 71 percent of
expectant mothers say they've
spent practically no time
reviewing their health benefits.

"It's important for expectant
and new parents to thoroughly
review their health benefits and
family budgets. Pregnancy is the
ideal time for combing through
the details of their health plans,
for example, to make sure all the
bases are covered. Fortunately,
there are resources and experts
available for new moms and
dads to get great advice planning
for their future," says Sandy
Jones, co-author with Marcie
Jones of "Great Expectations:
Your All-in-One Resource for
Pregnancy & Childbirth."


Know what your plan covers
during ..pregnancy to fully
maximize your health benefits.

* Schedule time to look
closely at your coverage, in
between reading baby-related
books and magazines and
shopping for baby accessories.

* Find out if your health plan
covers genetic counseling and
other new, cutting-edge services
as well as traditional services.

Revise Your Family
Budget

While health insurance may
cover many medical costs, there
are other expenses to consider.
Don't forget that these additional
expenses should also be
included in your overall family
budget.

* Create a new budget to
include baby-related expenses.


expenses .'such -as . health
insurance, non-covered medical
expenses, life insurance,
additional doctors'
appointments, deductibles,
premium costs, coinsurance and
co-payments.

* Speak with your doctor
about the cost of a normal
delivery vs. a complicated one
and what your insurance will
cover.

Plan forYour Health

.Expectant parents can visit
PlanforYourHealth.com,
featuring a newly expanded
"Family" 'section, with tips,
checklists and tools on health
and financial information on
bringing home baby. The tools
and information include:

parents estimate the cost of
pregnancy and their new baby in
