Svian Starlin receives

Boys Ranch


Alumni Our


Friend Award


Presented at
48th Annual
Bovs Ranch


Long-time Boys Ranch employee Vivian Starling is all teary-eyed after being named the
recipient of the most prestigious award given by the Boys Ranch alumni, the Our Friend
Award, during the Oct. 8 alumni banquet at the Boys Ranch.


Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor


She's worked there nearly 25 years
anniversary while raising her own family and has
given her heart and soul to the job of
turning around young boys and teenagers who needed a direc-
tion in life. Last week the Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch Alumni
Association surprised her by thanking her for all she's done in a
very special way. During the 48th annual birthday celebration
of the Boys Ranch, the alumni gathered for their annual,ban-
quet and awarded Starling the "Our Friend Award," the highest
award given by the alumni.
Starling cried when the announcement was made.
Admittedly totally unaware she had been selected to receive
the award even though she's the alumni coordinator for the
Boys Ranch as well as the receptionist, Starling had to spend a
bit of time wiping away those tears of joy and gratitude while

Janet Schrader
Democrat Reporter
Could it be the record num-
ber of named storms that has
caused one Suwannee County
resident's yard to be overrun
with hurricane lilies?
"I've never had them like


this," said Steve Hall about
the lilies. "Oh my! They're
going nuts."
Hurricane lilies are also
called spider lilies, naked
ladies and surprise lilies.
They pop up in lawns and
gardens out of nowhere in

What to do about fatigue
Many reasons exist as to why people suffer from fatigue, Pushing a
deadline and studying for an exam are common examples of the many
potential causes. Anytime the body responds to infection, it draws upon
internal energy stores to build a response, leaving the individual feeling
sluggish. Too much or not enough sleep will both cause a generalized
feeling of fatigue throughout the day. Medication can also play a huge role
in fatigue-like symptoms. Check your prescription bottle or the back of any
over-the-counter medication packaging for warnings to this effect.
Additionally, poor nutrition and dehydration are common causes of
weakness and tiredness, as well as more serious health problems.
A suggested first step is to correct the cause of fatigue on your own.
Generally, you can. Stop staying up late. Start getting up when you should.
Alternate caffeine-free soft drinks with regular soft drinks as a way of
reducing yotir over all caffeine intake. Most people say they begin to feel
better as they reduce the amount of caffeine they take in. Give yourself the
chance to feel well. Consult with your pharmacist if you feel you need a
multi-vitamin or some other type of assistance that may be available without
a prescription.

Avian

are various influenza strains,
which vary considerably in
severity. Some are devastating
to domestic poultry. Recent in-
formation indicates an Asian
strain can infect people and
there is concern that the virus
may mutate and allow for peo-
ple-to-people spread. Current-
ly, the Asian strain is spread to
people by infected birds. In-
fected birds shed flu virus in
their saliva, nasal secretions
and feces. It is believed that
most cases of bird flu infection
in humans have resulted from
contact with infected poultry or
contaminated surfaces. Symp-
toms ofbird'flu in humans have
ranged from typical flu-like
symptoms including fever, sore
throat and aches to eye infec-
tions, pneumonia and severe
respiratory diseases
"Its important for the public
to know that this Department is
aggressively looking for any
signs of dangerous strains of
avian influenza and has an on-
going outreach program to edu-


cate the industry and poultry
flock owners about these dis-
eases," Bronson said.
The Department's Division
of Animal Industry is increas-
ing its collection and testing of
samples, but the division has
had a testing program for more
than 20 years. Samples are reg-
ularly collected and tested from
backyard flocks and commer-
cial poultry breeding flocks.
For the period of August 2004
through August 2005, the De-
partment tested approximately
4,000 birds from over 300
premises or farms. Starting
October 2005, the Department
is implementing two enhanced
programs. The first is a surveil-
lance program that will involve
increasing the number of birds
tested at small animal sales
sites, live bird markets, county
fairs and exhibitions and botan-
icas. Under this program, it is
projected that 6,000 birds will
be tested. The second program
is a surveillance program that
will target the commercial
poultry industry.,
This program is projected to

test an additional 7,800 birds
from 36 laying complexes and
25 broiler and pullet premises.
All together, it is estimated that
15,488 birds, representing
commercial and backyard
flocks throughout Florida, will
be tested by the Department, a
387 percent increase from the
previous year. While the
stepped-up testing is not direct-
ly related to the recent outbreak
of Asian flu, Bronson says it's
important that Florida take
every step possible to prevent
the introduction of bird flu in
this state.
The United States does not
permit the importation of poul-
try from areas of the world with
serious strains of avian influen-
za. Florida requires all poultry
coming into the state to have a
permit for entry and to origi-
nate from avian influenza-free
flocks in addition to meeting
other import requirements.
The Department has 35 au-
thorized agents trained to col-
lect samples and conduct test-
ing at two diagnostic laborato-
ries. Veterinarians and others
working with birds are also re-
quired to report diseases sus-
pected of being influenza.
Quarantine and other emer-
gency plans are already in
place to quickly eradicate such
a disease should it be found in
Florida.

Influenza, visit the Depart-

12-18 inches in height.
This year named storms
have just about run through the
21 letters allowed. We've made
it all the way from Arlene to
Vince with Wilma being the
one last remaining unused
name. After all 21 names are
used; the National Hurricane
Center uses the Greek alpha-
bet. The next hurricane after
Wilma will be Alpha, Beta,
Gamma, Delta, etc.
In 1933, the hurricane sea-
son saw 21 storms, but that
was before the naming started.
This has been the second
busiest storm season since
1933 and there are still some
weeks left. There is a current
disturbance close to Puerto
Rico right now that could be-
come Tropical Storm Wilma
and that would tie 1933.
Hurricane Vince made the
season even more strange. It
was a short-lived storm but
was the 11th hurricane of the
season. There have only been

A Biblical Perspective of Halloween
PastorBrad Bailey & Bible Baptist Church .
There is really no need fo',r speculation or conjecture when it comes 0 Ithe Bible and Halloween
Scripiure is clear concerning the subject of any of the saianicaily influenced holidays or rituals
that .ermreate our culture A malor concern that our church has faced in the past has been the
fact tha ever tre unsaved are more prone to lake a stand against tihe evils of Halloween before
some churches anp denominations do Even the lost knoWthat Halloween is out-of-bounds when
it comes io lairh
Halloween costumes, decorations and paraphernalia have become a malor money making
commodity in recent years. It is almost understandable that naive kids would blindly seek such
garb, but recent statistics prove that more and more adults are buying as well There is no debate
that it is a hot money-making enterprise, but where should Christi ins stand on the issue? The
short answer to the question is with the Bible.
In Romans one, the Bible speaks of those who are not known to God The Apostle Paul
describes them as vain in their maginations and foolish of heart and even darkhearted. He then
states that they changed the glcry of the uncorruptible God into an Image made like to corruptible
man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things (Romans 1023). In other words, when left to
himself, lost man imagines the things of God, and even holidays, to be better suited with stand in images
rather than the incorruptible God. The Bible refers to the degeneration of man's view of holy days as
corruptible man (i.e. Santa Claus), birds (i.e. turkey day), fourfooted oeasts (i e. the Easter Bunny) and
creeping things (i.e. Halloween). Any reasonable thinking Christian can clearly see the shift of emphasis in
Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter from the divine to the deplorable. Yet we celebrate these sacred qdys
like the rest of the world does,
Then there is Halloween. It is neither about God, nor is it a holy day. With the advent of Harry Ponter.'and
multiple TV series that glorify witchcraft and make light of the evils of sorcery, Halloween has become on of'
the favorite holidays of youngsters and adults alike. Sadly, even believers are participating in the purchase of'
costumes, "Potter-mania" and the craft. Let me be clear, to involve yourself or your children in such evils is by
no means innocent, but rather ignorant.
Halloween is the highest and most sacred of all satanic holy days. On October 31st there will be animal
and human sacrifices, Black Sabbaths, cultic induction ceremonies, and filthy.religious activities that would
turn the stomach of the most brave-hearted. Informed Christians have no business commemorating such
evils.
Two years ago I followed the leadership of God to-begin informing our church of the evils of the occult,
Harry Potter, Slayer, Ozzy Osbourne, Marilyn Manson; And other fads that are prevalent today. The
information that I uncovered and presented to our church stirred up a spiritual hornet's nest. Witches began
making surprise visits to our assembly without warning, along with the admittedly demon-possessed. We
aired a series of sermons on the The Old Time Religion Broadcast here on a local station and our national
radio ministry. The response was irritatingly evil The phone calls and letters came from everywhere. Threats
to interrupt services, vandalize our property, and even harm my family and myself were routine. It was the
most stressful and toilsome time I have ever had as a pastor. We came to church service after service
wondering what kind of demon crazed activity would be next. The uncertainty was startling, but yet eye
opening. Demonic activity is not just local to the pagans of South and Central America or the Voodoo stricken
tribes of Africa, but alive and well here in our own county. The research that I have conducted as a pastor for
the benefit of our congregation is conclusive: Halloween is evil to the most extreme degree.
Our stand is as fresh today as it was two years ago, and we are still unafraid, We are not mavericks or
wranglers looking for a fight, just a concerned church hoping to inform our local community and the world if
possible of the wickedness behind the scenes of Halloween. '
Or Monday Oclober 31 2005, we are planning to begin a week-lorig revival meeting in our church The
theme ol Ihe meeting is NOT Halloween, but the Devil has hijacked too many of our religious holidays, and we
are determined to strike back by conducting a five-rnight revival meeting starting on his big day We know thai
this will again open our church up lo spiritual warfare bul we are still on the tiring line. Come and join the fight
with us
Just a final rote for unresolved believers the Bible is our textbook II is the final authority in ALL matters of
i alth and practice Whal the Bible says about Halloween and other evils is what Christians ought to believe
about il Too many have abided by a convenient, utilitarian view of Scnplure (i e they believe what suits their
I lifestyle besli Chrislians, do you believe what the Bible says or not? Read it for yourself. It's In the book.

Adults need immunizations too


Despite the many advances
in modern medicine, each year
--thousands of people in the
U.S. die from diseases that are
easily prevented by safe and
effective vaccines. That is
why the Suwannee County
: Health Department recently
promoted National Adult Im-
munization Awareness Week
;(NAIAW). NAIAW from
Sept. 25 Oct. 1, which is in-
tended to raise awareness
about the importance of adult
and adolescent immunization.
Although most adults real-
iie that immunizations play an
important role in keeping in-
fants and children healthy,
man', are unaware that readily
available vaccines offer a safe
and cost-effective way to pre-
vent serious illnesses and
death among adolescents and
adults.. As many as 50,000
adults in the U.S. die each year
from vaccine-preventable dis-
eases or their complications..
By preventing illness, vacci-
nation saves many healthcare
dollars by keeping people
healthy and avoiding the ex-
pensive therapies and hospi-
,'talizations needed to treat ill-
nesses like influenza and
pneumococcal disease. Immu-
nizations help reduce absences
at work, school and social
events, and decrease the
spread of illness in the home,
-workplace and community.
Influenza causes more than
100,000 hospitalizations and
San average of 36,000 deaths
each year in the U.S. Individu-
als with chronic medical con-.


editions such as diabetes, asth-
ma, or heart disease are partic-
ularly at risk of influenza in-
fection, as are people in nurs-
ing, convalescent, or other in-
stitutional settings. People 50
years of age or older are urged
to get the influenza vaccine
annually.
This year, influenza immu-
nization will be available in
October for those people and
will be available beginning in
November for all others seek-
ing protection from influenza
and its complications. People
65 years of age and older and
those with certain other med-
ical conditions are also at
higher risk for severe illness
caused by pneumococcal dis-
ease. More than 40,000 people
in the U.S. die each year from
this. disease. The risk of pneu-
mococcal infections and com-
plications can be reduced or
eliminated with the pneumo-
coccal vaccine. The costs of
both the influenza and pneu-
mococcal vaccines are cov-
ered under Medicare Part B.
The Suwannee County Health
Department reminds all adults
and adolescents that safe and
effective vaccines are avail-
able to protect them against
other potentially life-threaten-
ing diseases such as tetanus,
diphtheria, hepatitis A, hepati-
tis B, measles, mumps, rubella
and varicella (chickenpox).
For more information on
adolescent and adult immu-
nization, contact Suwannee
County Health Department at
386-362-2708.

Happy birthday once more to
Brother Wilmer Cribbs ... who
turned 86 years young on
Wednesday, Oct. 5 ... not Mon-
day, Oct. 5, as was printed in last
week's column. Monday was
Oct. 3 ... sorry about the confu-
sion ... which only goes to show
that we all have our senior mo-
ments from time to time ... even
yours truly ... usually perfect in
most every way ... unless, of
course, you happen to ask some-
one in my family ... but it is
most likely that their opinion
shouldn't always be counted as
absolute truth, as it may be
somewhat biased ... according
to whether they are pleased with
me on the particular day of your


asking.
Our condolences go out to
Jack Gaylord and family on the
death of sister-in-law, Dean
Gaylord, who passed away this
past Saturday, Oct. 8, after a
long battle with cancer. She was
the widow of Jack's late brother,
Ike Gaylord and was a licensed
auctioneer who for many years
held auctions at Beachville, just

Classmates Give Back to Community


Class of 1985 volunteers at the Dowling House


Twenty years after graduation,
the Class of 1985 gathered to
reminisce over the past, share the
present and celebrate the future.
Amidst the festivities of the re-
union, several classmates and
their family members took the
time to volunteer at the Thomas
H. Dowling House on Duval
Street.
Classmate Tracy Andrews
Forest, chairman of A.C.T., Inc.,
conducted tours for volunteers as
they arrived to help with some of
the finishing touches. In atten-
dance were Angel Robinson
Dean and Graeme Dean, Lori


Robinson Evans and Mark
Evans, Valerie Bigbie and Chase
Faircloth, Laura Ann Fouraker,
Gary Caldwell, Mike Houghton,
Adrienne (Lord) and her daugh-
ter, Leslie, along with friend
Carter, daughter of Janice Dees
Baucom. Also lending a hand
was Tracy's family, Fred and Flo-
ra Andrews and Callie and Sarah
Forest, along with neighbor
Grace Hill. Everyone helped
clean, caulk, 'prime, paint and
more while catching up on the
past 20 years. "Where are you
now? What are you doing? How
is your family? Do you have chil-


dren?" echoed throughout the
rooms. The work day became a
first for the house serving as a
place to provide people with op-
portunities to reconnect to the
past while helping to prepare for
the future.
The community center and
restaurant is dedicated to the res-
idents of Suwannee County and
will offer self-improvement and
enrichment opportunities for
children, youth, adults and se-
niors while networking with ex-
isting programs in the area to ac-
complish common goals. The
restaurant will offer a unique din-


ing atmosphere with southern so-
phistication, and will help fund
various programs at the center.
This project has involved
many years of planning, fund-
raising and hard work, but the
support of many volunteers and
donors is finally paying off! The
restored facilities will soon be
open to the public, offering a va-
riety of services and activities for
residents of Suwannee County
and beyond. For mote' informa-

Here's some important fire safety tips
from the state for the home:
Burn candles in a sturdy holder and keep
them away from children, pets and curtains.
Use flashlights, not candles, in jack-o-
lanterns.
Use a flashlight instead of candles during a
power outage.
Keep an approved fire extinguisher in the
kitchen.
Do not use frayed extension cords and do not
place extension cords under a rug or near a heat
source.
Do not overload electrical outlets or exten-
sion cords.
If you smoke, do not smoke in bed and never
walk away from a lighted cigarette.
Keep ovens, broiling pans and kitchen ex-
haust fans clean.
With small children in the house, turn handles
away from the front of the stove.
When frying foods on stove, do NOT leave the
stove unattended.
Do not wear loose or flowing sleeves when
cooking.
If a fuse or circuit breaker should blow or
keeps tripping, find out why.

to teach students fire safety
the entire month. The SCFD
will also participate in the fall
festival Oct. 20 at the First
Federal Sportsplex for
kindergartners through fifth
grade from 5 8 p.m. and will
be at Branford schools Oct.
12-13 for fire prevention
safety programs and will visit
various day care centers in
Branford this month, accord-
ing to SCFD's Lt. Eddie
Hand.
Live Oak Fire Department
(LOFP) Training and Safety
officer Allen Bedenbaugh
said that today kindergarten
through fourth grade classes
will visit the Live Oak Fire
Department where they will
see the equipment and tour
the fire station. LOFD will at-
tend the Oct. 20 fall festival at
the First Federal Sportsplex,


During Fire Prevention Week,
Floridians are asked to:
Plan escape routes from every room and floor to an
outdoor meeting place. Be sure everyone in the family
knows and practices them. If there is only one exit from the
upper floor, have slides or rope ladders available and prac-
tice proper use.
Install smoke detectors on every floor and in hallways
leading to bedrooms.
*Test smoke alarms and change smoke alarm batteries
when changing the clocks for daylight savings time in the
spring and fall months.


which is a special event for
kindergartners through fifth
grade from 5 8 p.m. where
the LOFD will put on a safety
program. Bedenbaugh said for
the entire month LOFD will be
putting on fire safety classes at
the station and at various
schools. Beginning this week,
Bedenbaugh said the LOFD
has available for senior citi-
zens (55 and up) 200 nine volt
batteries for home fire alarms
on a first come, first serve ba-
sis. If you live in the city and
are a senior citizen who needs
someone to bring the batteries
to your home and install, Be-
denbaugh said the LOFD fire
fighters will be happy to
oblige. "We're going to be
pretty busy throughout the
whole month with fire safety
education," Bedenbaugh said
of this month's activities.
Most fatal fires haplien in
homes and at least half of
those are preventable, accord-
ing to statistics from the State
Fire Marshal's Office. Having
a working smoke alarm is a
must when it comes to fire
safety, said State Fire Marshal
Tom Gallagher, but equally
important are practicing an es-
cape plan and avoiding fire
risks.
Gov. Bush and the Cabinet
have passed a resolution desig-
nating this week as Fire Pre-
vention Week. All Floridians
are urged to check their smoke
alarms and rehearse an escape
plan during the week.
"If a fire occurs, you may
have only a few seconds to es-
cape," Gallagher said. "That's
why it is critical to have a plan
that you have practiced and
memorized."
Last year, 415 people died in
Florida and 790 were injured
due to fires. While the very
young and the very old are
typically the most vulnerable
to death or injury from fire, the
highest number of 'deaths in
2004 was among men between
the ages of 41 and 50.
The leading causes of fires
in homes are cooking, heaters,


electrical overloads, worn or
damaged wiring, smoking and
candles. In fact, the number of
fires caused by candles dou-
bled nationwide between 1980
and 2002, when 130 people
died and 1,350 were reported
injured as a result of candle
fires. In Florida last year, can-
dle fires were blamed for two
deaths and 42 injuries.
The National Fire Protec-
tion Association has made
"Use Candles With Care" the
theme of its national efforts
during Fire Prevention Week.
Statistics show the majority
of candle fires begin in a bed-
room after the occupant has
fallen asleep. Common caus-
es of candle fires are com-
bustible material coming too
close to the candle, the candle
being left unattended, or
someone (often a child) play-
ing with a candle. The num-
ber of candle fires in homes
has been noted to double in
December.
That is why you should nev-
er leave a candle burning un-
attended and should put it out
before going to bed.
"We want people to under-
stand that conditions exist-
ing around their homes
could bring a wildfire to
their doorstep," Florida
Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson said in
relation to Fire Prevention
Month. "Many Florida
homes are in danger because
in our desire to live 'close to
nature,' we have created a
residential landscape of
highly flammable plants and
shrubs."
Bronson reminds Floridians
that everyone can help prevent
fires in Florida's forests and
wildlands. "Several wet
months have temporarily less-
ened the wildfire danger in
some portions of our state,"
Bronson said, "however, a few
weeks of dry weather can


quickly increase the wildfire
danger.
So far this year, Division of
Forestry has responded to
1,469 wildfires on 23,763
acres and saved 783 homes
and other structures.
As an alternative, Division
of Forestry recommends a
Firewise home. "A Firewise
home is a safer home," Bron-
son said, "because it has a de-
fensible space around the
home that is carefully land-
scaped with plants known to
be less flammable, a roof con-
structed with fire resistant
class A asphalt shingles, tile or
metal roofing, spark arrestors
in all chimneys, and raised
decking or porches that are
screened underneath to keep
out hot embers or fire brands
from a wildfire."
Additional things home-
owners can do to protect their
homes from wildfire include:
Keep the roof cleared of
flammable debris like pine
straw, dead leaves and sticks.
Keep road shoulders
cleared from overhanging veg-
etation, allowing access for
larger emergency vehicles.
Landscape within the
home's zone of defensible
space with widely spaced trees
(at least 15 feet apart) and
prune lower limbs of trees near
the home up to a height of 10
feet so the limbs won't act as
ladder fuel and bring fire up to
the soffits and roofline.
Be sure that the home ad-
dress is clearly posted at the
street or drive from both direc-
tions so emergency vehicles
can find the home in the event
of an emergency.
"Homeowners wishing ad-
ditional information on wild-
fire safety can contact the local
office of the Florida Division
of Forestry," Bronson said.
The State Fire Marshal's Of-
fice offers seasonal and holi-
day fire safety tips on its Web
page at www.fldfs.com/sfm.
There also are pages for kids,
parents and' teachers:, at
http://www.fldfs.com/SFM/SF
M_ForTheKids.htm. Since
2001, the State Fire Marshal's
Office, the FederalAlliance for
Safe Homes (FLASH) and the
Florida Fire & Emergency
Services Foundation have
teamed up to provide more
than 12,000 smoke detectors
that have been installed for
free in at-risk home in commu-
nities throughout Florida.

from the audience of former
Boys Ranch employees and
ranchers who gave her a round
of applause and cheers.
The beautiful plaque was
presented to Starling by out-
going association president
Marlin Hall. A number of
alumni came forward to talk
about what Starling had meant
to them through the years, in-
cluding some who actually
graduated from Suwannee
High School with her. Star-
ling's husband Rufus, mother
Pearlie Mae Walker, and sons
Branson and Will were on
hand for the event. Will Star-
ling read a letter from his sis-


ter, Amber Anderson who was
unable to attend, congratulat-
ing their mother on the award.
After completing 20 years
with the Boys Ranch, Starling
worked as a reporter with the
Suwannee Democrat for sev-
eral years before working
with the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement for three
years. She returned to the
Boys Ranch and has been
there for the past three years.
She also serves as the co-coor-

and construction on the new
facility will begin summer of
2006, with completion slated
for 2009.
The new facility is sched-
uled to have six to eight stories
and include an 800-car parking
garage. An above ground walk

"Bed space is an issue,"
Shands Healthcare Marketing
and Public Relations Officer
Lance Skelly said concerning
the need for the new facility.
"We want to expand our cancer
services to serve more of our
population."
Skelly said diagnosis and
therapeutic oncology care and

other existing services will
continue to be provided at the
new facility, but the new hospi-
tal will put more services un-
der one roof.
"We want to provide patients
as many services as closely to-
gether as possible," he said.
"Patients can receive surgery,
treatments and checkups at one
central campus."
Skelly said the cancer hospi-
tal will expand but not.replade.
services offered by UF Cancer
Center, which provides primar-


ily outpatient care. He said the
Cancer Center's trauma center
and emergency room will be
moved to the new facility.
There is only one National
Cancer Institute (NCI) in the
state of Florida -- the Moffitt
Cancer Center & Research In-
stitute in Tampa. Shands and
UF officials are considering
strides toward being designat-
ed as an NCI.
Skelly said for the new facil-
ity to be designated as an NCI
a number of items will be con-
sidered, such as bed space, re-
search capacity and treatment
options.
The hospital will tentatively
be named Shands at UF Can-
cer Hospital, subject to philan-
thropy-related naming oppor-
tunities.
About 1,000 new employees
will be hired for the cancer
hospital, including nursing
staff, critical care staff, clerical
staff and environmental ser-
vices staff.
Skelly said currently the
project is projected to cost
$250-300 million. About $40-
60 million is hoped to be raised
through philanthropy-related
gifts, with the rest provide
through loans.
"The new hospital, should,
'have a huge impact. econoami-

said.

Elks Lodge One Of Strongest


Local Lodge Rechartered In

1937; Has 314 Members


Active Supporter Harry-Anna Home
The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks is a fra-
ternal organization with declared purposes to practice its
four cardinal virtues, Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and
Fidelity. Among the strongest small lodges in the nation
is Live Oak Lodge No. 1165, B. P. 0. E.
The primary object of the Or- .
der is to practice charity in its [-
broadest significance, not merely '.'t,
that of alms giving, but service '
in this wide field which necessari-
ly involves a diversity of actiItles
which naturally are influenced byA
local conditions.
The Qrder of Elks was formally
organized on Feb. 18, 1868 in the
City of New York. Its full cor-I
porate name is "Benevolent and 1
Protective Order of Elks of the
United States of America".
The organization remains
strictly an American institution s
with lodges in every state in the
nation. The animal from which
the Order took its name was cho-
sen because of anuatiber of its
attributes were deemed typical of
those to be cultivated by mem-
bers of the fraternity.

Ruler in 1954-55, before being ele-
vated to the State Presidency in
1956-57. Following his year in this
office, he accepted the manager-
ship of the Harry-Anna Crippled
Children's Home in Umatilla.
J. L. McMullen served as state
vice president in 1940-41 and as
District Deputy Grand Exalted
Ruler in 1944-45. John S. Flood
held this latter position in 1958-
59 after an outstanding record
for two years as state chairman
of the Trust Fund Certificate
program for the Harry-Anna fa-
cility.
The local lodge has jurisdiction
over Suwannee, Lafayette, Ham-
ilton, and Madison Counties.
The meetings were held over
the quarters of Glass Motor Co.
on N. Ohio Ave. after reorganiza-
tion until May of 1939 when the
lodge bought the wooden building
on W, Conner St. which had been
built for the Elks Lodge, had been
lost when the original lodge fold-
ed and then used as offices for
the Standard Lumber Co.
This building was nearly des-
troyed by fire in' 1950 and the
old pants factory building on E.
Howard St. was purchased for a
lodge and renovation started. In
1954 the building was completely
renovated and air conditioned
and is now a handsome meeting
structure.


Closest to the hearts of local
Elks is the Harry-Anna Crippled
Children's Home which is sup-
ported by contributions and a $3
a year assessment of members of
lodges in the state. Wholly owned
and operated by Florida Elks, it
is for the treatment of indigent
children who are crippled whose
medical record indicates they can
be helped.
For the past five years the local
lodge has led the state in per
capital purchase of Trust Fund
Certificates, $100 gifts to the
home.
Locally the lodge sponsors Cub
Pack 86 and numerous other
charity works, like the annual
Christmas Party at the American
Advent Christian Home & Orpha-
nage at Dowling Park.
.TheElks 'were instrumental in
getting the land for the Florida
Sheriffs Boys Ranch and in sup-
porting this project.
Numerous events are staged by
the lodge each year, as their Flag
Day ceremony, Mother's Day
ceremony, and Elks Memorial
service. In addition, the lodge of-
ficers participate in the ritual
competition, having won the dis-
trict title several times.

The present Courthouse of Su-
wannee County was constructed

'Fishing Report
October 7-8, 2005
This last week's trout fishing
was great, before the W-I-N-D
showed up, and fair despite the
High w-i-n-d-s. Assassin's five-
inch shads accounted for some
limits in Native Shrimp and their
new color "Gold Fish" a clear
bait with gold and apricot-cop-
per glitter. I had a 22.5-inch trout
Monday on the 'Goldfish" col-
or! (our best trout) Candy corn
eels were also taking some good
fish in the stained waters to the
north. Of course live pinfish un-
der Cajuns were also taking
plenty of trout in 4-6 feet of wa-
ter. Some sand trout were still
around but not in the numbers
we saw the week before. They
will hit a variety of colors of As-
sassin sea shads (glow/green my
favorite) and Bill Stinchcomb
even caught one (14") on his
chicken gizzard while fishing for
bait!
Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday David and Danny Childs
of Griffin, Ga. had their limit
each day using Bill Lewis Slap-
sticks (pink/chrome), gold
DOAs and Assassin's Native
Shrimp colored five-inch shads
under 2.5-inch oval Cajun Thun-
ders. David said they did best in
3.5-4.5 feet of water.
Jim Searcy and his partner,
also of Griffin, Ga. had their lim-
it each day also Wednesday
through Friday, using Assassin's
Native Shrimp and Goldfish col-
ored Assassins under Cajun
Thunders in 3.5 to 4.5 feet of
water.
Friday, I took Mac, his broth-
er Tom and his Dad, Paul Mc-
Neal all ofValdosta, Ga. out and
we brought in a limit of 20 trout,
a 20-inch red and one 21-inch
Spanish which weighed a total
of 41 pounds! We had three
trout over 20-inches long. They
caught the fish on live pinfish
under 2.5 inch oval Cajun Thun-

New head football coach
Bobby Bennett has not had a
very impressive start to his
career at Suwannee. Friday
night, Bennett's Dogs were
shut out by Trinity Catholic
and the first running clock
ever in Suwannee football
history was okayed for the
second half. The final score
was 0-41 with Trinity

Trinity Catholic was im-

It was homecoming for the
SMS Bullpups. The strong
Pup team took on Jasper in the
Dog House. Jasper was hit
hard by the Pups who romped

Every kid got time on the field
for Suwannee as the Pups
scored eight touchdowns. One
of the touchdowns was made
by Donte Jordan scored the

Xavier Perry, who also com-

Josh Martin scored two touch-

scored a touchdown. Dillon

Travis Laxton scored the last

Frank Snead was the start-

trict. Raines beat Bolles 34-
21 Friday night at Bolles, a
tremendous feat that marks
their status as a tough team.
Suwannee also lost to Madi-
son, another undefeated
team, Columbia County and
GHS. All teams that are ei-
ther rated at the top of their
classification or in higher
classifications. The proof
will come this Friday night
when Suwannee takes on
Baker County.
Baker County lost Friday
night to Union County 41-
21. This Friday could be the
Dogs' chance to come out of
the cellar and start fresh by
making some big Ws.
The Dogs showed spunk
Friday night. Suwannee had
to play most of the game
without their "everywhere
guy" Dustin Doe. Doe left
the game early due to an an-


is romp
Nick Bracewell before the
first quarter was over. The
Pups were up 20-6 at the end
of the first quarter. At the end
of the half, the score was 42-6.
Time flew in the second half
as the clock ran continuously.
Rachard Thomas made an in-
terception of a Jasper pass in
the third quarter. BK, Brandon
Clayton, carried the ball to the
Jasper 20-yard line and with
2:08 left, in the third, Kirby ran
it in. Frank Snead, Jr. made the
two-point conversion to run
the score up to 50-6.
In the final moments of the
game, Brad Beamus got a first
down for Suwannee and
Travis Laxton carried it in for
the TD. The two-point conver-
sion was no good. The final
score was 56-6 Suwannee.
This win puts the Pups at 4-
2 for the season. The Pups
have one more home game on
Thursday, Oct. 20 against

Catholic their first touch-
down with 6:23 left in the
quarter.

the Dogs' next series. But
the drive fizzled on the Trin-
ity Catholic 32.
In the final seconds of the
half, Roundtree connected
with Mario Hawthorne on a
40-yard pass play, but the
half ended before any more
plays could be made.
For the first time in
Suwannee High history, a
running clock was started in


the second half with the
score 24-0.
Terrell Roman made a cir-
cus catch in the third quarter
for a Suwannee first down.
Roman also combined with
Doe in the third for a great
quarterback sack, one of the
high points of the game.
Suwannee's pass defense
held Trinity Catholic quar-
terback John Brantley to 11


of 23 for 125 yards. But the
Celtic quarterback still
threw for three touchdowns.
The Dogs managed 163
yards of offense. It would
have been more, but sacks
and lost yards get subtracted
from the total yards of of-
fense.
The First Federal Offen-
sive Player of the game went
to ruining back Jarrett

Yulee. Yulee carried the ball
most of the night for Suwan-
nee at the running back posi-
tion.
First Federal Defensive
Player of the Game was
Marc Broxey. Broxey made
some great plays on pass de-
fense for the Dogs and was
instrumental in keeping the
score as low as it was (Trin-
ity Catholic did not get their


50-points-per-game aver-
age) and containing the
Celtic's throwing game.
This week, Suwannee
travels to Macclenny to play
Baker County. It's a district
contest, and the Dogs have a
good chance of winning.
Take the short.drive to Mac-
clenny and be the 12th man
on the field for Suwannee.
Go Dogs!

Recreation Department football news


Janet Schrader
Democrat Reporter

Recreation Department
football is in full swing. There
were four games Saturday,
Oct. 1.
In Junior football action the
Packers hosted the Cowboys
for the first game of the day.
The Cowboys prevailed, win-
ning 18-8.
Next on the play bill was
another junior game. The Dol-
phins faced the PAL Bulldogs.
PAL won the game 14-6.
The Dolphins struck first.
Star running back for the
Dolphins, Austin Poppel,
had a great run setting up
Tyler Stratton's touchdown.
The point-after attempt was
no good, and the Dolphins


led 6-0.
But PAL struck right back
when their star running back
Randy Bennett scored. Then
with 45 seconds left in the
first quarter Bennett made a
crucial interception for the
Bulldogs.
PAL quarterback Jonathan
Godwin ran all over the field
to avoid being tackled and fi-
nally launched a pass caught
by Bennett, who ran 40 yards .
for a touchdown with 38 sec-
onds left in the half. The
point-after kick was good,
making it 14-6. The second
half yielded no points for ei-
ther team, and the final score
was PAL taking home the win
14-6.
The next game up was Pee
Wee Gators versus the
Tarheels. The Gators scored


off the kick-off return when
Gators' star running back
Lavare Williams scampered
down the entire field to score.
The point-after attempt by
Williams was also good and
with the entire rest of the
game to play, the score was 7-
0 Gators.
Williams scored again the
first quarter. The point-after
attempt was no good and the
Gators led by 13-0 at the half.
The final score for that game
was Gators 26-6 over the
Tarheels.
The final game of the day
was between the undefeated
Hurricanes and the Wolver-
ines. The Wolverines strug-
gled offensively, and the Hur-
ricanes retained their unde-
feated status, winning the
game 27-0.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: What foods are good for my oral
health?
A: You probably know what types of food
you shoulidavoid if you're concerned
about dental health: sugary, sticky items
like soda and cookies and candy,
immediately spring to mind. Nuts and
vegetables are far healthier snack items.
Some foods contribute to your oral
health. Lean meat, poultry, fish and
beans provide iron and protein that are
important for your overall health. They
also are rich in magnesium and zinc,
both of which are essential for healthy
teeth and bones. Dairy products like milk
and cheese provide calcium and vitamin
D, which also are important for strong
teeth and bones. Cereals and breads
have iron, which contributes to healthy
blood and, in turn, to healthy gums. The
vitamin C found in fruits and vegetables
is also important for healthy gums.
Studies have shown that increased
levels of vitamin C intake help prevent
plaque and tartar buildup. If you take
vitamin C tablets, it's best to swallow
them rather that suck on them. The
ascorbic acid in vitamin C tablets can
erode tooth enamel.

Sunday, I had Chris Dodge
and Trey DeSantis of
Thomasville, Ga. and they got
their limit of trout using live pin-
fish under Cajuns, despite the
horrendous w-i-n-d.
Jen, Leonard, and Rusty Tay-
lor with Marilyn Kiaupa of Lee
had their limit of 20 trout, four
sand trout, one mackerel, two
black sea bass and five blues,
while fishing jigs and cut bait in
7-9 ft. of water, Monday in the
18-22 knot w-i-n-ds. Way to Go!
A great mess of fish on a lousy
day!
Offshore Report: Friday,
Toby and Jason Wilkes, Roger
Brady, Brandon Byrum, and
Bradley Burnham, (sounds like a
law firm "Wilkes-Brady-Byrum
and Burnham") sony. . had
their limit (15) of grouper fi-om

ing fi-ozen cigar minnows and
Northern Mackerel.
That's it . no reports of
redtide off Keaton (Taylor coun-
ty coast fi-om other boats which
went! Outstanding!) So it looks
like we got real lucky. The
bloom was contained to a small
area and didn't last too long.
Good Fishing!

Slowing traffic in neighborhoods


Each year, thousands of
neighborhood residents -
many of them children are
struck and badly injured or
killed while walking or cycling
on streets in their own neigh-
borhoods.
"Many of these injuries are
caused by motorists speeding
on what were once low-speed
neighborhood streets," said Bill


Wilkinson, executive director at
the National Center for Bicy-
cling & Walking, a not-for-
profit organization based in
Bethesda, Maryland. "There is
a growing movement across the
nation to slow traffic within
neighborhoods, giving the
streets and sidewalks back to
the residents who live there."
To assist community mem-


bers who want to make their
neighborhoods more walkable
and bicycle friendly for resi-
dents of all ages, a new web site
has been launched. The Active
Living Resource Center web
site contains a number of ideas
for making neighborhoods
more livable places to be, in-
cluding how to slow traffic. The

Speeding neighborhood traf-
fic is not a problem limited to
the United States. David Eng-
wicht, director of Creative
Communities International
based in Bardon, Queensland,
Australia, notes similar prob-
lems "down under."
"As traffic speeds have in-
creased, residents have retreat-
ed from their own streets by not
walking, not allowing their
children to walk or play in or
near the streets," said Engwicht.
"Each step of this psychologi-
cal retreat from the street not
only has eroded the quality of
neighborhood life and sense of
community it has also en-
couraged the traffic to go even
faster."
Traffic doesn't have to be
traveling very fast in a neigh-
borhood to pose a real threat to
pedestrians. Studies completed
in Australia, the United King-
dom, and the United States
have demonstrated that a pedes-
trian struck by a motorist going
20 miles per hour has a 95 per-
cent chance of survival. If the
automobile is moving at 30
miles per hour, the 10 mph in-
crease decreases that chance of
survival to only about 50 per-
cent. Add another 10 miles per
hour, and the chance of survival
for the pedestrian decreases to
only 15 percent'
Many residents ask for stop


signs as a way to slow traffic,
but Wilkinson noted that this
can be a mistake. "Stop signs
will work in some instances,
but residents in many situations
are not going to be happy with
the constant screeching of
brakes and engine noise as mo-
torists quickly stop and then ac-
celerate away from the new
stop sign. If your street 'sends
the message' that it's okay to
drive fast in the area, then
you're probably going to attract
motorists who simply 'run' the
stop sign."
Methods to slow neighbor-
hood traffic have become col-
lectively known as "traffic
calming.". These methods in-
clude inserting miniature "traf-
fic circles" or roundabouts at
neighborhood intersections,
narrowing overly-wide streets,
and extensions of sidewalk
crossings into the street at inter-
sections called "bulb outs"
- to lessen the time a pedestri-
an spends crossing traffic lanes.
In Seattle, Washington, the
miniature traffic circle has met
with huge success., "We weren't
sure the residential traffic cir-
cles would be accepted," said
Peter Lagerwey, pedestrian and
bicycle coordinator for metro-
politan Seattle. "We installed a
few temporary traffic circles in
neighborhoods to see if they
would be successful. Residents
liked them so much that we had

to start a waiting list for neigh-
borhoods that wanted the circles
installed.
Lagerwey notes 'that during
the past four years, hundreds of
these traffic calming elements
have been installed on Seattle
neighborhood streets, and
there's still a waiting list for
new installations. "And," he
adds, "we have yet to receive a
request to remove one of the
roundabouts."

Center web site has links to sev-
eral useful guides for residents
who want to investigate ways to
slow traffic in their neighbor-
hoods. These include The

Transportation Alliance in New
York City, and the Pedestrian
User's Guide from the Federal

Waterproof matches.
Special items for babies,
such as baby food, formula

"One of our strongest tes-
timonials is from a woman
whose husband had just un-
dergone major heart
surgery," says Steve Vetori-
no, inventor of the NightStar
flashlights manufactured by
Applied Innovative Tech-
nologies. "Shortly after
coming home from the hos-
pital, they were hit by Hurri-
cane Isabel, which left them
without power for a week.
Unlike their battery flash-
light that failed when they


needed it, NightStar always
worked and helped get them
through a difficult time."
The advantages of having
a magnetic force flashlight
in your storm preparedness
kit are that they never need
batteries or bulbs, and are
always ready when you need
them. By briefly shaking the
NightStar flashlight, it pro-
vides 20 minutes of light on
a single charge. When Thak-
en, a high-strength magnet
passes back and forth


through a wire coil. The
electrical energy generated
is stored in a capacitor that
be recharged repeatedly, will
work in extreme tempera-
tures and will never corrode
-- even in humid or salty en-
vironments. NightStar flash-
lights now have state-of-the-
art LED technology that
puts the flashlights' beam on
par with conventional bulb
flashlights.
Even if you are at home
when disaster strikes and


your home is well-stocked,
you may still need the storm
emergency supplies in your
car. If your home becomes
unsafe to enter, such as after
an earthquake, your car may
be one of your most impor-
tant resources after a disas-
ter.
Think of your car's trunk
as a big steel supply cabinet.
Keep your storm emergency
supplies in the trunk along
with tools, jumper cables
and a spare tire.


Always keep your gas
tank full -- fill it when it
reaches a half-tank. You'll
be grateful for the full tank
if you are stuck in a traffic
jam during bad weather.
Keep your car mechanically
sound and ready to use.

PORTABLE GENERATORS!

Many residents who lose power may turn to
emergency generators to ensure a continuous flow
of electricity to refrigerators, freezers, lights, fans
and other appliances. SVEC urges residents to
exercise extreme caution. While generators are a
convenience in keeping appliances running during
storm-related outages, they can also create hazards
for homeowners and electric utility workers.

When operating a generator:
* Always operate a generator in accordance with your house to receive power directly from a portable generator
manufacturer's guidelines and instructions, as opposed to through the main circuit breaker normally
supplied by SVEC. Transfer switches isolate the circuits
* To avoid CO poisoning, never use a generator indoors or in supplied by the generator and prevent backfeeding -

People with
diabetes need to
give their feet an
extra dose of TLC.


--.-~


People with diabetes are more susceptible to foot problems
because the disease damages nerves and reduces blood flow to the
feet. Even the most ordinary of foot issues can lead to serious
problems -- in extreme cases -- foot or leg amputation.

If you are a diabetic, it's important to examine the tops and
bottoms of your feet each day for a number of foot ailments.

Dry skin: The nerves that control the oil and moisture in the foot
don't work in diabetics, making the skin of the foot susceptible to
peeling and cracking. Wash feet each day in lukewarm water and
mild soap (test water temperature with your elbow, not your foot).
Pat feet dry and cover tops and bottoms with a thick coat of plain
petroleum jelly or an unscented cream or lotion. Do not put oils or
creams between the toes or soak the feet for a long period of time:
All the extra moisture can dry the skin. --

Corns and calluses: Corns and calluses -- a buildup of hard skin -
- occur more often on the feet of those with diabetes. If not-
trimmed, they can get too thick and turn into open sores (known as
foot ulcers). Don't try to cut them yourself, or treat with over-the-
counter medicines which can burn the skin. Instead, have them cut
by your doctor. To control calluses, use a pumice stone daily.

Shoes and socks: Never walk barefoot -- even at the beach or
around your home. Bare feet can make your feet susceptible to
cuts, falls and infections. Always wear thick and soft socks and
avoid pantyhose or legwear which can constrict circulation to the
feet and legs. Don't wear open-toed sandals, high heels or shoes
with pointed toes. Shoes should be comfortable and fit well. (They
shouldn't require time to break in, though you should wear them
for short periods of time at first). The inner lining of the shoe
should be smooth and have no rough areas. If needed, your
insurance may cover special shoes.

Poor circulation: The blood vessels in the foot and leg narrow
and harden in diabetics. Poor blood flow can make it harder for
your foot to fight infection and heal. To control blood flow, don't
smoke, and control your blood pressure and cholesterol. If your
feet get cold, put on warm socks. Promote leg and foot circulation
by wiggling your toes, moving your ankles up and down and not
crossing your legs.

Nail problems: Nails may become infected with fungus, getting
thick, brittle and possibly crumbly. Fungal nail infections may be
treated with topical medication or oral antibiotics. You also want
to avoid ingrown toenails, where the edges of the nail grow into
the skin. Prevent ingrown toenails by trimming them straight
across and filing with an emery board once a week. If you can't
reach your toes, have someone else do it for you or ask your
doctor to help you.

Athlete's foot: This fungal disease causes itching, redness and
cracking. Problems start when germs enter through the skin's
cracks and cause an infection. Your doctor can treat it with a pill or
cream.

Proper footcare can help you prevent severe foot ailments from
occurring.
