Hurricane Katrina comes ashore.


Killer Hurricane Katrina may not have
struck Suwannee County, but it still had a lo-
cal impact when the state of Florida asked the
local Emergency Management Office to open
a shelter for those fleeing the storm.
Although the Suwannee County Commis-
sion met in an emergency meeting at 4 p.m.
Aug. 26 to declare a 7-day state of emergency


in the event the storm, did turn toward North
Florida, the Category 5 hurricane continued
in a more north westerly route
until it crashed into
Louisiana east of New
Orleans Monday,
Aug. 29 as a Catego- 5
ry 4' hurricane with
what. the media is call- ,
ing catastrophic results. By
the morning after the hurricane struck,
deaths in Mississippi had risen to 30 in one


N


apartment building with estimates of more
than 55 dead for that state. Officials in New
Orleans say their city is devas-
ttated and the death toll
will be high. Bodies al-
S' j ready have been seen
Si1atiotng in the flood-
waters and buildings
are on fire in some areas
with no way tor rescue offi-

One family of six from

Bill Jollie's wife, Paulene,
children, grandson and fu-
ture son-in-law were at the
shelter. They were folding
up blankets, thankful for a
place to sleep.
Paulene Jollie said this is
the third storm ihe '"e had
to evacuate for this year.
One pf them had gone with-
out power for five weeks
due to Hurricane Ivan last
year.
"During the storm (Ivan)
I had been in the hospital

cials to reach those fires. At
least 80 percent of parts of the
city of New Orleans is under
water, according to New Or-
leans Mayor Ray Nagin.
After the Suwannee County
declaration, Suwannee Coun-
tians waited and then breathed
a sigh of relief as the-storm,
more than 200 miles across,
crashed ashore along the
Louisiana, Alabama, Missis-
sippi and West Florida coast-
lines with the eye coming
ashore just to the east of the
historic city of New Orleans,
causing flooding, broken lev-
ees, damage to homes, busi-
nesses -and the Super Dome
where nearly 10,000 people
had sought shelter, along with
electrical outages. In Missis-
sippi, some evacuees had to
be moved ,from shelters that
became too dangerous to stay
in.,
In New Orleans, martial law
has been declared and water
was rising Tuesday morning
on Canal Street with no
potable, water available and
the ability to move about to-,
tally shut down.
One shelter was opened in
Live Oak 'at 9 p.m. Sunday
night, Aug. 28, at the Exhibi-
tion Hall II at the fairgrounds
where the American Red
Cross manned the shelter for
evacuees from other states..
At about 4 a.m. NMonda',, a
family of six arrived from
Foley, Ala., grateful to find a
shelter open after such a long
ride to escape the storm. No
others arrived to seek shelter
and the local shelter was
closed Monday after the fam-
ily left..
Suwannee County. declared
a state of emergency, as did
many other counties along
the possible path of the
storm, to be ready to receive
help from the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency

tion will end Friday, Sept. 2,

water and several boxes of
snacks and Meals Ready to
Eat (MREs). The shelter had
about 31 cots. Christenson
said if needed the\ could have
meals brought in from local
restaurants.
Explaining the MRE meals,,
Christenson .said they are
complete meals in pouches.
Adding water creates a chem-
ical reaction, which 'heats the
food.
"You just add water and
voila, hot food," he said.
"We've eaten a many a one
of them," Bill Jollie said
about,the MRE rheals.,
S"And, we've drunk gallons
'and gallons of bottled water,"
Jollie's soon to be son-indlaw
Lonnie Snider said.
Though there was only one
family at the shelter Monday
morning Christenson antici-
pated others coming, later; He
said the shelter would stay
open as long as there was a
need. Christenson said the
shelter was well stocked, but
if more supplies were needed
they could call for more.
By the end of the day the
shelter had closed when no
others arrived. .
The shelter was trying to
provide as many services as
possible ..
"People will just be down
and out," Christenson said.
"The further people get away
from where the storm is, the
less money they have. Gas is a
real burden."


to extend it. As part of that
declaration, the Emergency
Operations Center (EOC)
opened Sunday at noon and
began assisting other coun-
ties when. possible, in addi-
tion to other states.
Trucks began rolling into
Suwannee County on Friday
to begin loading thousands of
pallets of bottled water stored
at the old Badcock building by
FEMA to. be taken into the
stricken states as soon as the
storm passed and it was safe.
Hundreds of other trucks
staged at the old farmer's
market on CR 136 at Inter-
state 75 over the weekend,
ready to take their cargoes of
supplies into the stricken,


zones. Some of those trucks
were utility company trucks
loaded with workers who had
now been dispatched into
various.states to begin recon-
necting power.
Suwannee County Coordi-
nator/Emergency Manage-
ment Director Johnny Woo-
ley said he's glad he's not fac-
ing what the emergency
workers in the stricken states
are facing today. "Obviously,
with the destruction that's go-,
ing in the other states, it
should heighten everyone's
awareness that you can't pre-
pare too much," he said. "You
prepare for the worst and
hope the worst doesn't hap-
pen. It takes a lot of people


coordinating to answer a dis-
aster such as they've had out
in Louisiana, Alabama and
Mississippi and it will con-
tinue up into Tennessee and
on up the country, taxing the
resources of those states and
the federal government to
handle it."
Now, gas prices are expect-
ed to rise rapidly due to the
Gulf oil producing rigs having
to be shut down as the storm
approached. 'At press time,
there was no word on.whether
those rigs survived the mas-
sive hurricane.

Treatment Courts are tough,

"I live on a dead end road.
No one down here owns a
horse trailer," Murphy said.
"So seeing one down here was
strange."
Nervous over the horse-
trailer sighting, Murphy was
unable to rest Friday night.
Shel said she fed the horses
ii:llnd m -p.n1 and at S p.m.
they weIe-..fine .But anxious
and unable to sleep, Murphy
went out to check on her geld-
ing and mare around 1 a.m. At
that time, she said she couldn't
find them.
"I hollered and hollered and
got no response," Murphy
said
She lumped in her truck im-
mediately to search the horse's
pasture. She discovered the
fence was cut and her horses
were gone.
Murphy called 911 right,
away and a Su% rannee County


Sheriffs Office deputy came
out to investigate.
Deputy Arthur Robinson
said he saw the fence had been
cut, found many hoof prints
but could locate nro human
tracks. According to the. Of-
fense Incident Report, Deputy
Robinson said the northwest.
fence facing Interstate 10 had
been cut fiorm top to bottom
ith some unkno%,,1n object ,
At approximately 4 a.m. 1
Murphy got a call from a
neighbor who said the horses
were in his yard.
Murphy's brown mare had a
piece ofha:, string tied around
her neck.
"I think the\ were led off by
hay string," Nlurph. said.
She added that the mare
hates to be led b:, the neck and.
probably broke away from the
thieves. "I think she busted
loose and once she was loose
the other one is going to go'
with her." said Murphy.


Murphy's neighborhood has
had problems before with 'cats
and dogs, being killed .or
maimed and said she and her,
neighbors were trr ing to form.
some kind of neighborhood,
.watch. Her animals are very
'important to her.
"My horses are just regu-.
lar family -horses," Murphy
said. "But theN.'re like m
LiS.,,Bec'ause I don't ha e
a13 kitls." "

Hairdresser


Continued From Page 1A

"After school I stayed with.
the business until I got my li-
cense in September," Land
said.
"I thought. 'well I might just
as well work awhile.'"
Land never went back as a
bookkeeper, because she de-
cided she, liked hairdressing
so well..
"When I was away at
school, I did a lot of the girls'
hair," Land said. "I just liked
to fool with hair anyway,, so I
decided to stay with it. But I
never intended to stay this
long."
In her profession as a hair-
dresser, Land owned her hair-
dressing business "The House,
of.Beauty" for 40 years, oper-
'ating out of several shops lo-
cally. She declared she \\as re-
t'iAi -g a',-. 4e1., 7 i'n 1.9d'lold her'
* stlplid*WzSeauditokle.Iewant--,,
ed, to buy the business. After
she quit, a local 'hairdresser'
persuaded Land to come work
under her business. She cur-
rently works for Reflections
on Suwannee Avenue.
During her career Land has
had the opportunity, to sit-le
hair for Lip to three'genera-
tions in one fainily.' Some-
times Land sees people on the
street who tell her sh ie as the
first person to give them a per-
manent, and some of these
people are',great grandmnoth-


her's now.
"I had one, customer that
told me she hoped I 'did her
hair, as long as she lived,"
Land said. "One customer
who's in her earl' 8(Os.'I think,
enjoys telling people she's got
an 89-year-old hairdresser. It
amuses her to tell people this."
In the 60 years Land has
been a hairdresser, she's only
been out twice with health
problems worse than the com-.
mon told. A couple of years
ago she was out for two
months recovering from brain
tumor surgery. About 10 years
ago. she had a hernia opera-
tion. .
"Ernestine had her ,hermia
operation two weeks before I,
had m\ gallbladder surgery."
Hairdresser Theresa Harville
,aid. "And she recovered
quicker than I did!"
*;;: -W-em k"b

because it gets her out and
among people.,
.Land contributes her men-
tal sharpness and good health
to a stead\ temperament and
a happy and pleasant attitude.
After asking Land if she's
sure she will retire in Decem-
ber. \k ith a pun she said, "I'm
thinking about it: it's not all
cut and dried yet."

COMMENTARY


Make plans to attend


On Tuesday, Sept. 6, at 5:15 p.m.
one of the most important meetings
.,L,.,'your local, .goye.rnmp4t.Iwill be
held. The Su%% annee Counts Board of
County Commissioners will hold its
tentati\e budget hearing at Live Oak
City Hall and each of you are encour-
aged to attend this meeting.
The turnout for the two fire assess-
ment public hearings recently
demonstrated that many of you are
committed to voicing your concerns
about issues that affect you. In order


to promote open communication and a greater understanding
about how your county government functions,. it is vital that*
you understand how the commissioners raise revenue and,
most importantly, spend your tax dollars.
Hundred of hours have been invested in the preparation of
the proposed budget, and as the :county's budget officer I
.,strongly encourage you to attend and participate in the tenta-
tive budget hearing. My staff and I have met with each depart-
ment head, each commissioner, made re% visions to earlier drafts
of the budget and will be presenting the commissioners %\ ith a
tentative budget for their consideration.,This tentative budget
hearing is your opportunity to ask questions of your commis-


sioniers and share your concerns
about thii annual spending plan.
''., You should also note and plan to
attend the final budget hearing
which is scheduled for Monday,
Sept. 26, at 5:15 p.m. at the Live
Oak City Hall. Your attendance at
both these meetings will assure you,
and the commissioners, of a greater
appreciation for the tremendous re-
sponsibility your commissioners
face each year in approving the bud-


get for Suwannee County govern-
ment. The more you learn about this process, and the more in-
formed you are as a citizen, hopefully, the more, involved you
become in the process that will help when you are expressing
your needs to the Board of County Commissioners.
If you have any questions regarding hot the budget is pre-
pared, please give me a call. It is an honor and privilege to
ser' e you as your Clerk of the Circuit Court. If you need addi-
tional information or oould like to tour our offices, please give
me a call at 386-362-0500.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR


Dear Editor:
Why is the gorgeous old historic post office building being
abandoned downtown? Surely an elevator is cheaper than
buying property) at the interstate and building a new building!
Thereis also adjacent gas station property\ that could possi-
bly be purchased for additional parking.
. How many people are going to be ad\ ersel', affected by
placing the post office so far out from town? The elderly,
Business owners, citizens with limited, oi no transportation
and people who check their mailboxes daily are just a few.
Traffic is fierce out by the interstate and will become even,
worse in the future!
\ h', not put a branch by the, interstate" and leave the old
post office downtown to serve Live Oak's diverse group of
citizens. Besides, if gas gets any higher the cost will prohib-
it many people from going to the interstate to check their.
mail everyday.


Superintendent
or Schools


And last but not least, those steps should be viewed as
steps to save your life! In my opinion, the forced exercise by
walking those post office steps is desperately needed by
many Sitwannee Countians whose health could greatly bene-
fit from their daily use!
With so much grow th in Suwannee Count) it is imperative
to ha% e good planning. It appears to mre with the new post of-
fice decision someone had some land to sell by the interstate.
PLEASE no more multi-million:dollar, disasters like the jail
'downtown!
The library and jail in my opinion are the result of poor
planning. As' in Leon County, the prisoners should be out
from town and the library dowt nto\wn.
As a taxpayer in Leon and Suwannee County, I am very
concerned with decisions that are being made in Suwannee
County!
Jill Elmore

For those of you who
missed my column last
week, sorry there wasn't one
... and for those of you who
didn't miss it ... well, I'm
back either way.
Like yard sales? Linda and
Jack Gaylord recently spent
their vacation enjoying the
daddy of all yard sales. From
Aug. 4-7, sellers set their
merchandise up along US
127, from Gadisen, Ala. all
the way to Corrington, Ky.,
... offering 450 miles of
trash and treasures for sale.
Linda,said there were hun-
dreds of yard sales and thou-
sands of people hoping to
find that one true treasure
amidst all the genuine trash.
She said the real fun was try-
ing to find a motel to stay in
or a restaurant to eat at. This
year was her and Jack's fifth
year along the dusty yard
sale trail ... and as always;
they had fun seeing old
friends, making new ones
and finding new treasures.
Little Man (LM), their pet
pooch, didn't get to go. Jack
was afraid LM .would get
dog-napped ... and fearing I
would keep him for good if
he stayed with me, he left
LM with friends Wayne and
Donna Hopkins. I tried Little
Man ... but your daddy
would have nothing to do
with our plan. He knows you
love me best. We'll try again
next year.
Congratulation to the


Latasha Donnie "Moo"

Brown, during which we
spoke fondly of our former
classmates, those who are
still with uis and those who
are now forever in our mem-
ory. Lynwood and I graduat-
ed from Columbia High in
Lake City, Class of 1964.
This time last year we were
enjoying our 40th class re-
union at Camp Weed, It was-
n't long afterwards that Lyn-
wood suffered a life-threat-
ening heart attack and had to
undergo several hours of
open heart surgery. His wife
Becky took a leave of ab-
sence from her teaching job
to be by his side in South
Florida where he was hospi-
talizepI for several weeks.
Today, Lynwood is living

His name. Stop by again
Lynwood, my friend, you are
always welcome. Happy

I don't know about the rest

the leaves begin to turn col-

and we gripe because we
have to rake them in big
piles 'so the wind can blow
them across the yard again
as the acorns make a pinging
sound when they hit the
barn's tin roof ... and I say,
thank God I'm a country
girl!,
It's that time ... remember
to pray, for our troops and
their families, be kind to a
stranger, help your neighbor,
and tell those you love you
love them. Remember what
Erma Bombeck said, "It
goes without saying that you'

Joe Chamberlain is chosen


for a national position


Joe Chamberlain, executive
director of Camp Weed and
the Cerveny Conference Cen-
ter, has been chosen to serve
as the director of member ser-
vices for a national organiza-
tion, Episcopal Camps and
Conference Centers, Inc. He
will continue to serve in his
position as executive director
of Camp Weed and will add
this to his list of duties.
Chamberlain has been an
active member of ECCC, Inc.
since the early 80s and served
on the board for three years
and later as president for an
additional three years. ECCC,
Inc. serves the 90 Episcopal
Camps and Conference Cen-
ters across the United States
and offers educational, con-
sultative and networking ser-
vices.
Chamberlain said, "The
current executive director of
ECCC, Inc., The Rev. Jack
Andersen, is retiring, so the
board of ECCC, Inc. is filling
his position with two people
working in a part-time capac-
ity." There will be an execu-
tive director, Canon Peter
Bergstrom, in California and
Chamberlain will be the di-
rector of member services in
Florida. Between the two,
they have the country cov-


My heart goes out to those
people in Louisiana, Alabama,
Mississippi, West Florida and
other states northward experi-,
encing Hurricane Katrina. The
beautiful city of New Orleans,
which apparently suffered cata-
strophic damage during the Cat-
egory 5 storm that made land-
fall early Monday, Aug. 29, is
where I lived with my parents
for a short time. My mama
made the decision to travel back
to Madison for my birth, mak-
ing me a Madison County na-
tive instead of a New Orleans
native. My dad is buried in New
Orleans, and I await news that
damage was not done at ceme-


teries as predicted. I know many
of you out there have friends
and family there or are very fa-
miliar with the historic city and
you, too, are concerned. We will
await together news of how the
city and its people fared while
we pray for the best outcome.
Labor Day is next Monday
and most everyone will have the
day off. It's the holiday to honor
the American worker (that's me
and you!) with a day off. Have a
grand day off and do something
for -ourself....you deserve it.
Tomorrow September be-
gins.....where has the year gone!
Only four more months left in
2005! That means Christmas is


just around the comer, not to
mention Thanksgiving! Time is
moving too fast.
Lots of exciting things will be
happening at the Spirit of
Suwannee Music Park this fall
so check out its schedule at mu-
sicliveshere.com to find out
what you want to attend. Partic-
ularly popular'will be the Sept.
2-5 Labor Day Picnic this week-
end with fireworks, Oct. 5-8 Fall
Suwannee River Jubilee and the
Oct. 20-23 MagnoliaFest. Fall
in North Florida is beautiful and
a good time to get out and enjoy
our wonderful area. The Music
Park has the events you don't
want to miss.
THE BLESSING
My wife invited some people
to dinner. At the table, she
turned to our 6-year-old daugh-
ter and said, "Would you like to
say the blessing?" "I wouldn't
know what to say," she replied.
"Just say what you hear Mom-
my say," my wife said. Our
daughter bowed her head and
said, "Dear Lord, why on earth
did I invite all these people to
dinner?"

Chamberlain went on to
say, "Camp Weed has directly
benefited from the services
offered by ECCC, Inc., and I
look forward to doing my


part to help other camps and
conference centers do as well
as Camp Weed."
Chamberlain will begin his
new role for ECCC, Inc. in
December.

lence in Education and Take Stock in Chil-
dren is proud to announce the addition of

tor. Hillary is a life-long resident of.
Suwannee County.

sive program that helps low-income chil-
dren succeed by providing college and vo-
cational scholarships. Each child selected
receives a four-year, college tuition or yo-
cational scholarship purchased by the
Florida Prepaid Tuition Program. Students
receive their scholarships if the\ have ful-
filled the terms of the contract and when
they have graduated from high school.
;Each child in the program is assigned a


caring adult mentor who meets with the
student at his/her school for 30 minutes
each week. These volunteer mentors are re-
cruited, trained, supported, monitored and
evaluated by the Take Stock in Children lo-
cal lead agency. Mentors provide tutoring,
motivation, guidance, friendship and sup-
port and are encouraged to continue their
service over a multi-year period.

cational partner or a Take Stock in Chil-
dren mentor please contact Hillary at the

surfaces that require more than a s imple coat of paint. On, surfaces like
sheet rock or plaster, a primer helps to even out the porosity and keeps the
paint from being absorbed unevenly. If a primer is, not used, the more
porous areas will "flatter" than the non-porous areas and theover-all
appearance of the topcoat will' suffer enormously. As well.as enhancing the
Fop coat's appearance, specific primers can provide corrosion resistance on
metals or alkali resistance on masonry. The best primers to choose from are

Fishing

Report
This week's report is
both wonderful and horri-
ble all at once!
Inshore, trout fishing is
fantastic! My One More
Cast charters landed 84
keeper trout in 6 days
of flats fishing. We also
caught Spanish, blues and
reds. Saturday, I had Keith
and Lorraine Cullefer and
Bobby Cooper of Colum-
bus, Ga. out and we got
into some great jump-fish-
ing. The birds were having
a blast feeding with lady-
fish, Jack Crevalle, Span-
ish, and blues which were
feasting on schools of
thousands of tiny glass
minnows and herring no
longer than three inches.
Loraine fought and landed
a four-foot, 38-pound
Blacktip shark as well! We
finished with 16 trout,
seven Spanish, six blues
and the shark.
A clear bubble rig with
a Clark Spoon was deadly
on Mackerel and Assas-
sin's clear/gold sea shads
rigged under Cajun Thun-
ders accounted for it's
share as well. Several of
the largest trout hit candy

The two Suwannee Bulldog football
players recently enrolling at Suwannee
High from Hamilton County, have popped
in on the Gainesville Sun's Super 11.
Dustin "Duke" Doe made. the list as a
linebacker and Leon Daniels, Suwannee's
big man on the O-line, made it as an of-
fensive lineman and as a defensive tackle.
Union County had four players on the
Super 11 list. One player each from Co-
lumbia, Buchholz, P.K. Yonge, Santa Fe
and Bradford County filled out the 11.
Doe also made the Top 50 Seniors in
the state of Florida listed by the Sun.


Doe is 6'l", weighs 208 pounds and
last year benched 300 pounds and clean
and jerked 305 in the 199 weightclass. He
can run the 40 in 4.55 seconds.
"My primary interest is defense," Doe
said. "Last year I had 77 tackles."
Doe also made an appearance on the
Jacksonville Times Union Super 11. This
list contains what the Times Union feels
are the top college prospects in a 48-
school area around Jacksonville. In 2004,
Suwannee's Bruce Johnson made the list.
Johnson is listed as a possible starter for
the University of Miami this year at cor-
nerback.
Doe has already verbally committed to
attend the University of Florida as a de-
fensive linebacker.

ASK DR.MANTOOTH


Q: What is scaling?
A: Scaling is the procedure your dentist
or hygienist will use to remove
accumulated calculus from the tooth,
either below or above the gum line.
Hand scalers are small instruments that
can be shaped at their ends like a
curved spoon, a sickle, a hoe or a file,
depending on the task at hand and the
preference of the dentist or hygienist.
The person doing the scaling will gently
insert the instrument beneath the gum,
press it firmly against the tooth and pull
toward the crown to remove the
hardened plaque. It doesn't always
come off in one piece, so the scraping
may have to be repeated a few times.
Scaling, even below the gum line, does
not necessarily hurt. The instrument is
,pressing against the tooth's enamel,
which has no sensitivity. There can be
some discomfort, though, when the
instrument presses against the gum. If
the procedure is hurting you, tell the
dentist or hygienist. He or she may be
able to apply a topical anesthetic to
ease the pain. Talk with your dentist
about how often you should have your
teeth scaled.

Turkey Shoot brings fun, family and fellowship to Georgia


More than 600 shooters
from across the U.S. descend-
ed on the Meadows National
Gun Club in Forsyth, Ga., Au-
gust 19-21 to compete for
$100,000 worth of cash and
prizes in the National Wild
Turkey Federation's 12th an-
nual Turkey Shoot sporting
clays competition.
The. NWTF's Turkey Shoot,
is one of the largest sporting
clays competitions in the na-
tion.
Shooters competed in a
number of events, including
the 200-Target Sporting Clays
Championship, the 50-bird
Briley Squaded Sub-gauge
competition and the Ladies Di-
vision.
"Turkey Shoot continues to
grow every year in prestige
and size," said Rhett Sim-
mons, .NWTF special events
coordinator. "This year the
competition was tough, but the
competitors like it that way,"
Wendell 'Cherry of Red
Boiling Springs, Tenn., took
High Overall National Sport-'
ing Clays Association division
by breaking'187 out of 200
clays.
In theHunter division of the.
sporting clays competition,


David Velton of Weyers Cave,
Va., won first place with an
impressive round of 167 out of
200 clays while the coveted
2005 Winchester Ladies Cup
went to Linda Joy of Midland,
Ga., with a score of 170 out of
200 clays.
"We had more than 800 en-
tries Friday in the sub-gauge
competition, 12 gauge special
events and 5-stand comtpeti-
-tions," Simmons said. "Every
year the Meadows throws
some really hot targets and
we're planning' on making
them even hotter next year."
One major change from last
year's competition was that the
Still Target Competition was
not held during the Turkey
Shoot. Instead, The Outdoor
Connection, Inc, World Wild
Turkey Still Target Champi-
onship will be held Oct. 7-9 at
the Wild Turkey Center in
Edgefield,;.S.C., because of the
growth of both events.
Proceeds from the 2005
Turkey Shoot benefit Wheelin'
Sportsmen NWTF, an outreach
program that .provides people
\\ith disabilities the opportuni-
ty to enjoy the outdoors
through NWTF chapter events
nationwide.'

the way to the Columbia three-
yard line. The Dog offense was
unable to score from there,-
even after they managed to
claw their way to the one-yard
line. Cameron Ridgeway came
in and booted the field goal for
Suwannee's three points.
The Suwannee defense was
'just as stingy during the first
half as Columbia's. Columbia
managed little in the way of of-
fense during three quarters of
play. But the Dog "D" was
whipped after being on the
field most of the game. The fi-
nal quarter told the story as the
tired "D" gave up two touch-
downs to the Tigers in the
fourth quarter.'
The.Dogs did not go quietly
into the night. Suwanmee
fought and scrapped until the
bitter end. In the third, Suwan-
nee staved offa Columbia field
goal, blocking the kick arid
causing a fumble that Doe
scooped up on the Suwannee


18-yard line. After several suc-
cessful runs by newcomer to
Suwannee, #17 Patrick Brown
a running back that can't weigh
more than 125 pounds, the'
Dogs had another first down.
But'the series fizzled with more
lost yards and Columbia had
the ball again. In. the entire
game, Suwannee was only able
to make four first downs and to
get off only' 40 plays. Brown
was the only successful running
back for Suwannee with four
carries for 28 yards.
The score gbing into the
fourth quarter was still 3-0
Suwannee. But Columbia
scored in the first seconds of
the fourth and again tox% ard the
end of the game. The point-af-
ter kick was no good for the
Tiger's last touchdown and the
final score was 3-13.
The Dog offense did manage
'74 total yards andecommitted
no turnovers. Taj Roundtree
-was 3-12' in the passing depart-
ment for a total of 35 yards.
Terrell Roman caught the
longest pass for a total gain of
.15 yards.
It was a defensive battle until
the end. Columbia took home
the Oaken Bucket.
The First Federal Offensive
Player of the Game was place-
kicker #43 Cameron Ridgeway.
This was Ridgeway's first-ever
.score as a football player.
Ridgeway is a soccer Dog.
The First Federal Defensive
Player of the Game was #55.
Lee Laxton. Known only by his

If you're shopping around
for a used car, consider buying
from family. Uncle Sam* sells
more than 40,000 well-main-
tained vehicles each year, and
buying a vehicle pre-owned
by the Federal Government
can be easy and convenient.
You can choose from a vari-
ety of quality Ami'erican-made
cars, trucks, vans, or SUVs. To
find out how.to purchase one
of .these economical vehicles,
get a copy of "U.S. Govern-

http://www.autoauctions.gsa.g
ov to locate an auction, search
inventories, or bid on vehicles.
At the auction house, regis-
ter for the sale and use the in-
ventory list to preview the ve-
hicles on the lot. Choose sev-
eral vehicles to bid on and be
prepared to bid on several al-


ternatives in case your first
choice is bought by someone
else. Determine the maximum
amount you are willing to bid
before the auction
begins. Guides such as the
NADA or Kelly Blue Book
Used Car Guides will help you
calculate the anticipated price
for your vehicle.

Three different types of Pink Eye
The most obvious symptom of pink eye is exactly that the pink or red color
is due to inflammation. The eye may also hurt or itch. How the eyes feels will
sometime give clues as to which type of infection is .present. Bacterial
conjunctivitis normally affects both eyes and causes a heavy discharge,
sometimes greenish. Viral conjunctivitis usually affects only one eye and
causes excessive eye watering and a.light discharge. Allergic conjunctivitis
affects both eyes and causes itching and redness in the eyes and sometimes
the'nose, as well as excessive tearing.
Both viral and bacterial conjunctivitis spread easily to others. Tips to help
control pink eye include washing your hands frequently, and avoid touching
or rubbing your eyes. Don't share washcloths, towels or pil-lowcases with
anyone else, and wash these items after each use. Don't share eye drops or
cosmetics such as eyeliner, eye shadow or mascara. To avoid re-infection,
replace the cosmetics after you're healed. Your optometrist may recommend'
that you discontinue contact lens wear dur-ing this time or replace your
contact lenses after you're healed. See your doctor for a diagnosis before
using any eye drops in your medicine cabi-net from previous infections or eye
problems.' 1B8941-F

Cub Scout Pack 408 celebrates the end of summer


with a swim party and picnic


By Webelos 2 Den Leader
Thomas Robley Burnett
Photos by Alan Stefanik,'
committee chairman
Cub Scouts, their parents
and siblings took a chance
on a recent Saturday. The
group attending the after-
noon/evening swim party,
with dinner, had been ex-
pecting scattered thunder-
storms. They were not dis-
appointed! Even though it
rained for the first hour,
scouts waited for it to pass
so they could swim and
cook out. Actually, the
,- .. .... ; :


adults did the cooking while
the kids played.
The inside activities in-
cluded board games, a really
great movie about a girl
having to solve a mystery to
get the $2 million prize;
and, for the older siblings, a
short lesson in math. They
did not like having "school
work" while at a party!
Two older siblings be-
longing to Boy Scout Troop
693 took the opportunity to
pass on some requirements
for the Swimming Merit
Badge. Pack 408 is the feed-
-:.. ;'':. ^ *


er unit for Troop 693.
The parents and
parent/leaders had time to
socialize and renew friend-
ships before the new year
begins. Several families had
taken exciting vacations to
places like Alaska. There
was talk about the upcoming
school year, teachers, class-
es and anticipated home-
work. There was a discus-
sion about the upcoming
Roundup.
The 2005-2006 Cub Scout
Roundup is scheduled for
the evening of Aug. 18. This
:,_; ; f<' ,..-.


is the time for interested
parents and boys to inquire
about the scouting program
and join a pack. The
Roundup will be held from
7-8 p.m. at Suwannee Ele-
mentary School. Current
Cub Scouts and their leaders
will be on hand to explain
the programs, to answer any
questions and to accept
membership applications
from. both boys and their
parents.
Tiger Cubs have the op-
portunity to meet twice a
month during the school-


year. Wolf Scouts, Bear
Scouts and Webelos Scouts
meet weekly during the
school year. There is a
monthly pack meeting. Dur-
ing the pack meeting the
dens perform skits and the
scouts receive awards
earned during the previous
month. The Cub Scouting
activities involve both the
scout and his family. The
Tiger Cub (first grader, or
seven-years old) must have
his adult parent/guardian
with him during meetings,
camping and any other ac-


tivity. The older scouts (sec-
ond-fifth graders) do not.
First through third graders must
have a parent/guardian along
for campouts. Fourth and fifth
graders (Webelos scouts) may
camp without a
parent/guardian. For additional
information on upcoming activ-
ities, visit the pack's Web site at:

Tick Bite


Fact Sheet


Summer is a time when
many people spend more
time outdoors, so it's impor-
tant to remember how to pre-
vent tick bites.
Some species and some life
stages of ticks are so small
that they can be difficult to
see, but all hungrily look for
animals and, sometimes, peo-
ple to bite. Depending pn the
species, you can find ticks in
various environments, often
in or near wooded areas. You
may come into contact with
ticks \\hen talking through
infested areas or by bn.shing
up against infested vegetation
(such as leaf litter or shrubs).
Ticks also .feed on mammals


and birds, which play a role
in maintaining ticks and the
pathogens they carry.
Protect yourself from
tick bites:
Avoid tick-infested areas.
'Many local health depart-
ments, parks and cooperative
extension services have infor-
mation about the areas most
infested with ticks. If you are
in a tick-infested area, walk
in the center of the trails to
avoid contact with vegeta-
tion.
Wear liglt-colored cloth-_
ing, \inluch allol s you to see
ticks that are crawling on
your clothing. Tuck your pant
legs into your socks so that


ticks cannot crawl up inside
of your pant legs. Some ticks
can crawl down into shoes
and are small enough to crawl
through most socks.
Use chemical repellent
with DEET or permethrin and
wear protective clothing. Re-
pellents containing perme-
thrin can be sprayed on boots
and clothing. When used in
this manner, the repellent will
be protective for several
days. Repellents containing
DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-tolu-
ainide' can be app.liedto the
skin, but they protect for only
a few hours before reapplica-
tion is necessary. Parents
should apply this product to


their children, avoiding the
hands, eyes, and mouth. An
alternative to DEET, pi-
caridin, has recently become
available in the United States.
Picaridin has limited data
published for tick repellency,
but it may provide suitable
protection.
Check your body for ticks
after being outdoors, even in
your own yard. Conduct a
body check upon return from
potentially tick-infested areas
by searching your entire body
for ticks. Use a hand-held or
full-length mirror to view all
parts of your body and re-
move any tick you find.
Check these parts of your


body and your childis body
for ticks:
Under the arms
In and around the oars
Inside belly button
Back of the knees
In and around the hair
Between the legs
Around the waist
Check your children for
ticks, especially in the hair,
when returning from poten-
tially tick-infested areas. See
the list above for the places
on your childis body to check
for ticks. Remove any tick
you find on your childis body.
Check your clothing and
pets for ticks. Ticks may be
carried into the house on


clothing and pets. Both
should be examined careful-
ly, and any ticks that are
found should be removed.
Placing .clothes into a dryer
on high heat effectively kills
ticks.

partment of Health Web site

Do you forget?


By Aunt Pam
I have a question for you kids! How many times do
you forget to thank God for all that he does for you?
Have you ever even thought about that? I know all of
you are probably real busy with things like school,
church, sports, clubs, watching TV, homework, going
lot's of places, doing your chores, and so much more,
but what about God?
Have you ever prayed for God to help you with
something and then forgot about it. Did you think to
thank God when he answered your prayer?
You see God does so much more for us than we have
ever even asked him for, he protects us everyday, he
heals our bodies when we are sick, he watches over


our families and keeps them safe, he provides food
and a home and so much more. I know sometimes,
you may feel like there is too much to do, or that you
are too rushed, but it is God that holds you and your
family together.
Have you thought about what God has done for
you today,, or did you forget about all that he does for
you each day that you live? God has given all of us
someone to love,, mom's, dad's, grandparents, other
family, friends, people that care about you. Be sure to
take time spend with them, to let themknow you love
them while the\ are still in yourlife. life is very pre-
cious, don't ever forget to love each other. .
I am sure that you have been sick with something


The greatest act of God
A monster is lurking in the sea, it's given, different names.

No matter what they call it, the destruction is all the same.

EVACUATE is the word that's heeded, go find a place of shelter.

Before you're blown clean off the map,
as your worlds turned to helter-skelter.

It shows up red on the radar, while moving to the north.

There's frightened tears in many eyes, be prepared to trust your source.
:Storms of this intensity, in three words "acts of God"

But they know not what they mean, as upon this land they trod.

For the "act of God" was made perfect, about two thousand years ago.,, ,,.

When he sent his blessed son, for everyone to know.

Jesus came to rescue all of us, certainly, not to destroy. .

He came to bring salvation, to fill believer's hearts with joy.

Don't ever blame the father, for damage such as this,

Your thought go this direction, if God's only son you've missed.

The LORD might want to score the ground, to plant His precious seed.

So man may learn the way is Christ, to know He's all we'll ever need.

Still in all, the, Master speaks: make ready the land for harvest.

Get barrened down and hammered in, and trust the LORD to do His best.'

Those that hold solid to their faith, and put their only trust in Him.

S KNOW that God's the maker, the keeper of the wind.
Thank you Lord

Kathy Wilson


sometime in your life,
or we know someone
that has either been
:sick, or is sick now. We
know that God is al-
ways right there with
us and he. will heal us,
and anyone that asks
him for his healing.
Have you ever asked
God to make some-
thing that was hurting
you go away, like a
/-cold or a headache, and
God took it away? Did
you remember to thank
him for answering your
prayer?
Before you were ever
born, God knew that
you wouldd be right
where you are right
now reading this article
mn Aunt Pam's Corner!
God's love is so awe-
some. Have you ever
taken time to look up at
the sky at night and'
seen all the beautiful
stars twinkling, or
looked at the sky on a
sunny day and noticed
the beautiful shades of
blue in the sky with the
white puffy clouds?
Our God, really shows
us how much he really
cares!
Over and over, every-
day our God protects
us, helps us, meets all
of our needs,, answers
our prayers and loves
us, even if we forget to
thank him. How often
do we take time to tell


him we love him, or to say thank you for all God does
for us? You see even if you forget to tell him, God still
loves you.
Today, I want to share the first part of a scripture
verse with you. It is Deuteronomy 7:9a "Know there-
fore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful
God." It is really important to take time to learn to talk
to God about anything and everything concerning our
life. He really cares about you.'He is a\I a s \\ith you,
and he will never forget you, so try to take time to tell
him thank you; God is too important to forget!

Hey Kids! Can You find these words in
the puzzle? Look in all directions, and if
you find a word circle it! Have Fun!

How many times do we forget?


By Pam Campbell
I have a question for you today. How many
times do each of us forget all that God has done
for us. How many times have you prayed for a
need and God answered your prayer, but you nev-
er even remembered to say thank you? Think
about the times when he has provided for you fi-
nancially, or opened a door just in time for that
job that you desperately needed. How about all of
the times he has protected you from harm, on the
roads, while working, at school, or out at night,
things that we will never know about, yet he does
them just the same. I know that sometimes our
lives seem too rushed, we may have way too much
to do, so many places we are supposed to be,
many people depending on us, it may sometimes
seem like our life is out of control. But always re-
member that it is God who holds you together, he
helps you in every area of your life.
Have you given any thought to how much he
has helped you today or have you been so busy
that you forgot?
Think about your family and friends, the love
that you share, does that just come by accident?
No, it is God who brings all of you together with


his love, and blesses our lives with times together
that make us a family, and we make beautiful
memories for years to come. Have you thought to
take some extra.time lately to thank God for your
family and friends, and maybe pray for them, too?
Don't take for granted anything in this life, life is
very precious and it goes by very quickly. Don't
put off time with your family and friends, take
time to enjoy them while you still have them.
Most of all, remember not to take God's love,
protection, grace, mercy, healing, and salvation
for granted. The Bible says in 1 Chronicles 16:11-
12 "Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face
continually. Remember his marvelous works that
he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of
his mouth." Think about all of it, and remember,
to thank God for it daily.
I am sure that most of us have been sick at some
point of our lives, a cold, a headache, a sore
throat, earache, migraines, the flu, a broken bone,
or maybe something more serious, such as dia-
betes, gout, a stroke, pneumonia, lung, heart, or
blood pressure problems, digestive disorders, can-
cer, whatever sickness or injury either you or
someone. in your family has been through, or may


What is Praise and Worship?
In most churches today you will walk in, sit down in Think of it this way, if your children were to ask you
a large area of the building, and then proceed to sing a for something and were cold and unthankful about it,
few songs before the pastor or speaker stands to give a would you want to give them anything? Take those same
sermon or message. That is the typical Sunday morn- kids and let them say, "Daddy, I love you." or "Daddy,
ing routine that thousands of Christians do every Sun- I really appreciate you" you would break the bank to
day morning. The only problem is that in the routine give them whatever they needed. Jesus said in Mat 7:11
we have lost a great part of the power and presence of "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto
God that we so desperately need every day. That part your children, how much more shall your Father which
is praise and worship. is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?" If
It does not matter if you sing hymns, Southern we want to give the best to our kids, how much more
gospel, contemporary worship, or something in-be- does God what to give to us if we would just praise Him.
tween, the time of praise and worship in the service is When the American church today understands what
not just singingsongs. It is not a prerequisite to a ser- praise and worship is, then we will impact our city,
mon. It is not a "time filler" while we wait for all the county, state, and nation with the presence and power of
late people to get to church. Praise and worship has a God. S6 the next time you are in your service remember
purpose. The time for praise and worship is the time that you are not just singing a song, but you are giving

be going through, God is always there to help you'
and all who need help. Remember, he is the healer,
the great physician, he heals so many times and in
so many ways that we don't realize, let us always
take time to thank God for his healing, for the
health that we have. God wants to uphold us and
help us, to heal us, to always be our strength.
Before we were ever born, God knew that we
would live,. he knew about each one of us and
where would be right now while we are reading
this article. God'slove is so amazing, his greatness,
the vastness of his universe is so awesome. How
long has it been since you took time to remember,
to stop all that you are doing, thinking, or worry-
ing about, and just said thank you God. Look up
at the sky, it really is an amazing sight, the multi-
tudes of stars on a beautiful moonlit night, the gor-
geous hues, of every shade of blue along with many
amazing shapes of white puffy clouds on a sunny
afternoon. Yes, just look up at some of our God's
handiwork and realize just how much he really
cares!
Over and over, day after day, night after night,
God continues to answer our prayers for healing,
protection, finances, help in school, help to get
things done, we are always asking, always taking
for granted that God will be there for us, and he is.
Over and over and over again, God moves in our
behalf, and we go on to the next thing in our busy
lives, and again we forget to say thank you. You
see God never fails us, he will always remain faith-
ful, even when we forget. He continuously forgives
us, he always loves us, though we may sometimes
take God for granted, he knows that people forget.
Take comfort in knowing that God never forgets!
I would like to close today with this scripture
from God's word, "Know therefore that the Lord
thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keep-
eth covenant and mercy with them that love him
and keep his commandments to a thousand genera-
tions:" Deuteronomy 7:9. You see God will never
forget us, let us try to remember to thank him.

Growing up versus

growing out

For parents, there is ri q "
nothing more i! i
exciting than
welcoming a new t. I'I
baby into the world O|i
little oe grow as the7
weeks and months
progress. From the
very first breath to ', ,
their first steps, new
parents count every
new inch of growth
or ounce of weight as
a sign that their little
ones are growing into
healthy toddlers. .. .
However, with more
than 15 percent of all
children in the.U.S.
overweight, parents
may be asking
themselves how
much growth is too
much in their i- 'i
children's early i
years? ,. ... .
New science
presented during the a s .r
annual meeting of
The Endocrine ..
Society showed that a s P
rapid increase in a
child's rate of growth
during his or her first six months, of life is associated with a higher body mass index
(BMI) at age two. BMI is a standard measure of weight in proportion to length/height
and an indicatorof obesity. The results of this study suggest that a child's growth rate
maybe an indicator for their fituive 1rght., ,, I
Because excessive weight gain iin childhood is linked with an increased risk for
developing conditions like Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and hypertension, it is
important for parents to know they are not alone if they are concerned about their
child's weight.
"These findings show that rapid increases in a child's growth from birth through the
first six months ofginfancy may result in a higher BMI when he or she is a toddler,"
says Dr. Andrea Dunaif, President of The Endocrine Society and Chief of
Endocrinology at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine. "Parents
can discuss with their pediatrician whether an infant's growth pattern is appropriate or
a cause for concernn"
In addition, the study showed that the infants who were considered smallest in size
at birth had the highest increase in BMI at age two. This suggests that even for parents
with children who are small at birth, monitoring growth and tracking any rapid
increases with a doctor is useful. Parents who are concerned about their children's
growth rate or weight should ask the following questions of their doctors:
Talking to Your Doctor ,
Is my child's weight, length/height and growth rate appropriate based on standard
growth measurement percentiles?
Based on family history, is my child at risk for any conditions associated with
excessive weight gain?
When should I follow up with you to assess my child's growth again?
"Parents often come into my office asking whether or not their child's weight is
'normal.' This study seems to show that addition to a comparing a child's weight to
that of their peers, we need to be assessing whether the rate of growth is appropriate,"
says Dr. Henry Anhalt, a pediatric endocrinologist with The Endocrine Society's
Obesity Advisory Board and Saint Barnabas Medical Center. "If you notice that your
infant is gaining weight rapidly, consult your pediatrician. They can assess the
situation, and if necessary, recommend a specialist who can provide guidance."
Working together with a pediatrician,
parents can monitor their children's
growth through these. early stages toA M H
ensure that each new milestone is a e

Shrimp

Continued From Page 1C light picnic or host a neighbor-
hood pool party, you can use
Florida ocean caught shrimp as
an appetizer, the main course or side dish. The Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer Services offers the following
tips for hosting a Labor Day gathering, including festive ways to
ihcorporatW" -caught Florida shrimp. .
1) RANi'g and entertaining outdoors is a standard sum-
mertime activity so why not chill out with a picnic? Dinner out
in the open is perfect for those warm and lazy summer nights.
Shrimp and veggie quiche can be cut into convenient single
servings and easily toted along with the rest of the traditional
picnic fare, such as fresh Florida fruit and cold beverages. Be
sure to bring a blanket (or two!) large enough to seat your entire
dinner crew. And don't forget to practice food safety. Thorough-
ly chill or warm the food before you leave and store it in appro-
priate containers a cooler with plenty of ice for the cold food
and an insulated container or bag for the warm food.
2) Summertime weather especially in Florida is often
unpredictable. Have a back-up plan in case you need to move
the gathering inside. Florida shrimp on the backyard grill can
easily be toted indoors and fried, sauteed, boiled, broiled or
baked in the kitchen.
3) Be the host with the most by preparing your dishes in
advance. Cold food like zesty shrimp gazpacho is always wel-
come in hot weather and best when prepared ahead of time.
4), If you're the host, relieve stress by letting your guests
help out. By making the grill a central aspect of your party, you
can allow your guests to take a turn rotating the shrimp on the
grill without taking away from their time to socialize. This is an
effective way to keep their interest and taste buds fully en-
gaged while decreasing your workload.
5) Take advantage of all the fresh ingredients available
this time of year. Get creative and mix seasonal specialties with
a universal favorite shrimp and sweet corn saute. This is one
example of mixing shrimp with the season's finest.
6) Themed parties are always fun why not try a
Caribbean theme? Give your guests a taste of the islands with
shrimp bigarrade with Caribbean ratatouille or coconut fried
shrimp.
This Labor Day, enjoy the warm weather and extra free time
that the holiday brings by hosting a get-together with family and
friends. With your favorite people, these party tips and Ameri-
ca's favorite seafood, your gathering is sure to be a sizzling suc-
cess for the last big summer soiree. For more wild and wonder-
ful recipes using ocean-caught Florida shrimp, please visit

STORMS & OUTAGES
Long before a storm or hurricane threatens, SVEC stands ready to respond.
When the storm hits, our employees roll up their sleeves and go to work to
restore power interrupted by the sorm's fury.


Customers who lose power should
contact SVEC. When the call is
answered, the location of the outage is
recorded automatically by SVEC
automated outage-reporting system.
Customers can also speak directly to a
company representative if available.
SVEC brings in additional employees
to respond to customer calls during
major storms, and it has dramatically
increased the number of incoming
telephone lines for its outage-
reporting system. But customers may
experience busy signals and longer-
than-normal waits during times of
high call volumes.

Here are a few tips to follow for your safety:
* If someone In your home Is dependent on medical equipment
requiring electricity, make arrangements In advance for and
alternative power source for emergencies.
* If rising water threatens your home, turn off the power at the
circuit breaker panel or fuse box before water enters your home.
Have an electrician Inspect your system before turning the power
back on after flooding.
* Never replace a fuse or touch a circuit breaker with wet hands, or
while standing on a wet or damp surface.
* If you see a downed power line, call SVEC to report Its location.
* Avoid driving over downed power lines. Avoid puddles near
downed power lines..
* Plug only Individual appliances Into portable generators. Never
connect a generator to wall outlets, building wiring or your home's
electrical system.
* If you require transportation assistance during an evacuation,
reg ster In advance with the Civil Defense and Office of Emergency
Management In your county.

*To prepare for outages, It is wise to have plenty of fresh batteries
for flashlights and radios.
* If you have a gasoline-powered electric generator, use It In well-
ventilated areas and only plug In Individual appliances. Never
connect a generator to a wall outlet of your home or building's
electrical system since that can cause damage to your equipment
and can be a life-threatening danger to your family, neighbors and
repair crews. Be sure to have adequate fuel for your generator and
manage consumption by running It for only a few hours at a time.
* Prepare a list of essential items you would need In case you are
evacuated from your home and have them readily available. Some of
these Items could Include medications, Insulin, contact
lenses/supplies, extra eyeglasses and denture needs.
If your power goes out, wait at least five minutes before
reporting it to SVEC office In order to give our
automatic equipment time to restore power.
Listen to your local radio and TV stations for
weather updates and Information from SVEC.
