LIVE OAK FIRE: TEN YEARS LATER


lab busted

* Seven arrested


ABOVE, On the 10-year anniversary of the fire in downtown Live Oak, the-corner destroyed in the blaze has made a significant turn-
around. Through donation of land, grants and private donations,.the city of Live Oak was able to build a beautiful city park com-
plete with stage and landscaping on the site of the fire on Oct. 20, 1995. The city park, named the Lynnette Ricketson Millennium
Park, is a bright spot where once devastation reigned.
BELOW, Downtown Live Oak was ablaze 10 years ago when a fire swept through five businesses. Fire units from Live Oak, at
least three county volunteer units and a Lake City unit-were brought in to battle the blaze.

MagnoliaFest means lots of great Roots Music


* Music festival celebrating
nine years in North

A full-blown music festival industry has
sprouted during MagnoliaFest's nine-year
existence. Few would've imagined the
growth to come back in 1997 when Jack-
sonville based Beth Judy and Randy Judy
created the MagnoliaFest and sister music


festival Suwannee Springfest. Since then,
scores of behemoth music festivals have
sprouted forth, offering up literally hun-
dreds of bands, countless hours of perfor-
mances and drawing crowds in the hun-
dreds of thousands. That MagnoliaFest and
Suwannee Springfest were last year listed
among the top 25 Music Festivals in the
Southeast by Creative Loafing magazine is

Dear Editor:
It's time for Suwannee and Lafayette counties to join us in
Madison, Jefferson and Taylor counties in opposing the coal
plant slated for Taylor County.
Because this proposed 800 megawatt monstrosity, with 700-
foot high smokestacks; uses the pulverization method of pro-
ducing electricity from coal, it is guaranteed to affect most of us
in these five Big Bend counties.
We'll be hit with acid rain and highly toxic mercury, which to-
gether produce a wide range of health problems as well as de-
stroying our property values.
And the sad thing is, it's not necessary. The powers that be just


aren't interested in getting serious about conservation and effi-
ciency which, alone, could solve the increased projected energy
needs used as the rationale for this plant.
That's why I and some fellow Madisonians are going to Tal-
lahassee every weekend up until the Nov. 17 voter referendum
deadline to canvass neighborhoods. To let them come face to
face with the human beings - health and quality of life for the sake of this plant that will pro-
vide their additional electric power for only two years.
If anyone cares to join us, call us at 850-973-3351.

Just how, many of us are
happy to see this cooler
weather? It is really beauti-
ful this time of the year ...
with all the different, glori-
ous colors the outback dis-
plays along its country
roads. I do miss my hum-
ming birds ... they are usual-
ly gone by mid-September,
.headed for the warmer cli-
mates of Central and South
America, where they nest for
the winter. Each year I look
forward to their return ... al-
ways in awe as God's tiniest,
winged flights of fancy sud-
denly and mysteriously reap-
pear again in our yard; al-
ways in search of the sugar,
water I prepare for them ... it
certainly can fill one with


wonder ... how these tiny
creatures survive their long
journey over open ocean wa-
ters ... then their return
again the following spring
... usually sometime in
March. You can mark the be-
ginning of a new spring by
their return.
Speaking' of flights of 'fan-
cy, Jinny and Jack Wilson
have finally returned home
to Wellborn from all of their
adventuring. I hope to one
day, in the near future, sit
down with Jinny to glean
some of the fun things she
and Jack enjoyed during
their travels that took them
far beyond the borders of our
outback. As soon as I hear
their exciting stories, I will

certainly be sharing the ad-
ventures of Jack and Jinny
with all of you.
This past week-end, Don
and I went to Renninger's
Antique Fair, which is held
on the third week-end of the
month in Mt. Dora. We en-
joyed visiting with old
friends, seeing some beauti-
ful antiques and collectibles,
and eating at the always
great Dixie Cross Roads
Restaurant. The weather was
perfect for just such an event
... the food delicious ... and
as always, it was good to
visit with old friends. We
had a.great time.
Our grandson Kaleb, who
is in the first grade, recently
experienced one of life's ma-
jor milestones ... one that
we have all faced during our
youthful, formative years ...
that of losing his very first

It must be fall as the
weather has finally gotten
cooler. Mornings are just
heavenly, but 'afternoons
are still a little too warm to
be comfortable...but that
will change. On Monday,
Oct. 16, it was below 50
degrees in the morning,
which is just right for jog-
ging, walking or biking
and/or snuggling under-
neath those covers for an
extra 15 minutes before
having to get up and go to
work or school.
Because the weather is
changing from the brutal
heat to a nicer climate, I
worked in my yard all day
last Saturday planting aza-
leas, moving red tips, wa-
tering and putting out pine
straw. I had hoped to get
some top soil brought in to
make new beds at the front
of our home, but I just
couldn't accomplish mov-
ingwhat little is there now
in preparation for the new
soil. Hopefully that will be
accomplished in a -couple
of weeks. There's just
something about gardening
that makes you feel .so
good. I think part of it is
communing with God
while you're working the
dirt,' fighting the multitude
of ants.that thrive in our
yards and then getting a
chance to sit down outside
and isten to God speak to
us through the birds, the
squirrels and in my case
this weekend, a huge owl
who put on quite a display
for me about noontime. No
phone, no people, just you
and God working. the earth
and talking. Before the day
was over, I went to a local


nursery and purchased
some Muley Grass to put
out in the front. Now, Mu-
ley Grass is that elegant,,
flowing,. wispy grass
you've seen at White
Springs at the new state
tourist office at the corner
of CR 136 at the stop sign.
It blooms with a pinkish or
purple bloom that is just
gorgeous, and would be a
welcome' addition to any
garden anywhere. Just ask
your nursery....they'll
know what you are talking
about and probably have it
in stock.
I was very surprised to
see Evelyn Downing Vann
and husband Jerry'Vann of
North Georgia at West-
wood Baptist Sunday
morning. Evelyn is a long-
time family friend with
whom I communicate by e-
mail. She had been, to
Mayo for her-class reunion
over the weekend and then
came to church with her
brother, Clint Downing.
They were planning to vis-
it Jerry's father, in the af-
ternoon, who was ill. It
was really good to see
Evelyn and Jerry after such
a long time.
Another friend, Sandee
Arozqueta, who used to
live next door to me on
66th Street, 'emailed -me
this week to, say she's
moving to Tennessee from
OHlando. If you know
Sandee, you probably
don't know she plays a
mean bass fiddle in various
bands all over and lives to
play her music. She's
played at the Florida Folk
Festival the last -two or
three years and plays iAi

Jacksonville often. Sandee
and I get along so
well...it's like we've
known each other all our
lives. Although she'll be
far away, we'll still com-
municate by email.
A special thank you to all
who have called, stopped
me and spoken to me or
just let me know in some
way how sorry you' were
about the passing of Jim-
my's brother, Albert Lamb.
Again, thank you.
With advent of cooler
weather, it's got me think-
ing about the holidays
coming up,. having the fam-
ily together for Thanksgiv-
ing, putting up Christmas
trees, buying presents and
cooking. Of course, right
after all that, it's January
and in nmy mind, that means
SPRING! so I can start all
over again gardening big
time! I'm hopeless. Know-
ing I'm without any flow-
ers at all in my new yard
except those I potted and
brought with me, several of
my friends have offered to
let me come over and dig
up extras at their houses.
Now, those are true friends
and I've already accepted
their offers and plan to do
that soon so next year my
yard should begin to re-
semble a real yard. Life is
so grand!
By the way, at Westwood
Sunday morning, the youth
pastor, Jonathon Reavis,
preached his first sermon
to "big. church" as he put it.
As I opened my bible to
mark the passage he used
to preach on,, I noticed two
verses below I had also
marked those following
verses to read as follows:
Bro. Herb Reavis, 1/31/88,,
last message at Westwood
Baptist Church. God works
in such mysterious ways.
Who would ever have
thought that a father and
son would be on staff at the
same church 17 years apart
and preach on the same
book in the bible only sev-
eral verses apart! And, both
did a fine job of preaching
the twb different sermons.

store employee and immediately called her
dad Mac. "I passed several cars getting there,"
elaborated Mac, who lived about three miles
from the store. Daughter Natalie and husband
Wes had been to Steinhatchee celebrating a
family birthday. Natalie said, "When we got
back in the car and heard it on the radio, I.
started crying and couldn't stop all the way
back to Live Oak."
"It's nothing more than smoke damage,
we'll be OK," said a hopeful, yet frightened
former Democrat Publisher Michael Coulter
when he arrived and before the flames slowly
crept into the walls of the Suwannee Democ-
rat from a nearby building.
Where there's smoke, there's fire. And this
would be a big one, one of historical propor-
tions.
After the smoke was traced to Holiday
Treasures and Gifts, no one thought the fire
would end up spreading to four adjacent busi-
nesses, no one knew one-half of a city block
in downtown Live Oak was doomed.


"I can't believe what I'm seeing," said a
worker staring in shock as the smoke began
boiling out of the building.

A community convenes
The phone calls started soon after and resi-
dents gathered to watch a sad chapter in Live
Oak's history.,
Still photos showed flames shooting into
the night sky as firefighters from two counties
and even some Valdosta, Ga. firemen who
were just passing through town that evening,
battled the flames;
Democrat pressmen Jim Ramsey and David
Hall, who arrived on the scene while daylight
faded, had driven the forklift out of the build-
ing, but-nothing else was saved, as safety,
wouldn't permit it. Despite the chaos, busi-
ness owners and workers held out hope each
building would survive the fire..
"I was going home after getting pizza and I
could see the smoke, all the way from 51. I
turned around and headed back toward town
and stopped at the Jiffy Store and asked what
was burning, and I was told the Democrat,"

the FCAT.
"Can we find a style of
teaching to reach these kids?"
r Owens asked. "When our mi-
norities fail, I feel like we are
all failing."
r The Board agreed and Jones
said the school would work in
juggling time and teacher
' planning.
Suwannee Elementary
K School 'Principal Betty Ann
Sumner said the school is fo-
cusing on boosting the grades
of minority and'economically.
'disad antaged subgroups.
"Onhl 38 percent of our sub-
groups last year scored at or
above grade level in reading,'
Sumner said. "This is unaccept-
1c able. Our goal for this year is to
see 50 percent of this group
make the grade."
Sumner said the school is
implementing sensiri\ity train-
ing, which will help teachers
understand minority groups
w which might help boost grades.

in reading from 2004-05 but
decreased three percent in
math. Economically disadvan-
b taged students stayed the same


in reading (35;percent) but de-
creased two percent in math.
The two groups stayed the
same or improved in writing.
All other subgroups either
-made AYP or were considered
not applicable based on popu-
lation size.
. "I'm hearing that African
American students are failing;,
what can we do as a district to
bring kids up?" Owens asked.
"This question needs to be
asked out in the community
and among everyone," Sumner
said.
The Board and several prin-
cipals discussed community or-
ganizations who help African
American students improve
'grades. Among them are
churches and other groups who
offer tutoring and parents who
implement homework night at
schools. .
"You have to start teaching
children when they're little
through reading and vocabu-
lary." Jones said. "We need to
tri and get academic stan-
dards to parents in Kinder-
garten." .. ..
Owens agreed explaining
when teachers provided infor-
mation about skills her son
needed to know by Kinder-
garten, it seemed like a lot of
material.
"Churches need to help."
Steele said. "We can give them
some things off the computer.
We need community help."

cal Center Principal Dianne
Westdott said 26.8 percent of'
ages 25 and older in Suwannee
County have no high school
diploma.
"We are dealing with an un-
dereducated population," she
said. "I want to support
'younger children before they
enter college."
Citing the findings from a
study from the University of
Oregon that revealed the im-
portance of vocabulary and
reading in the home, Westcott
said children of poverty only
hear 600 words from parents,
most of which are negative.
Middle class children hear
more words, words that are
more positive and some phras-
es. Children from professional
families hear about 22,000
words per day, many which are
Saffirmative.
"My institution's mission is
to change the legacy of these
children," she said.
Any group or individual in
the community can make a dif-
ference by reading'to children,
lielping children with home-
work and implementing mater-
ial sent home by teachers. See,

said Dee Freeman, Democrat Composing
Manager. "It was the most amazing disaster
I've ever witnessed or care to ever witness
again."
While firefighters battled the flames, ordi-
nary folk pitched in to carry supplies and pro-
vide, support.
"During that time, the community came to-
gether to help out everybody," Lamb recalled.
Few could believe what they were seeing.
But still, they stood and watched as a piece of
their heritage burned to the sky. Employees
consoled each other and -tears rose in the eyes
of many as near midnight the roof of the De-
mocrat, the building farthest from the start of
the fire, burst through in a glowing ball of
flame. Destroyed were the Suwannee Democ-.
rat, but also Suzie's, Holiday Treasures and
sandwiched in the middle Bruce's shoe repair
shop. ,

The day after
The sun rose Oct. 21, 1995, to reveal a
charred hull of what had been the cornerstone
of news and information to thousands of
Suwannee Countians.
Remnants of filing cabinets and their
charred remains were all that was left of the
Suwannee Democrat, which stood at the cor-
ner of Pine and Conner for nearly a hundred
years. The signs outside the building remained
unscathed.
Firefighters sprayed hotspots in the burned
out buildings for hours following the Oct. 20,
1995, fire. Smoke could be seen up until four
days after the blaze. In all, four buildings
were lost. Five businesses and dozens of busi-.
ness people were displaced.'
The community answered the call as the
good people of Suwannee County and the city
of Live Oak responded to the public servants
doing their jobs. People who just wanted to
help gathered in the parking lot across from
the smoldering rubble.
By noon Saturday, Oct. 21; 1995, investiga-
tors were combing through the blackened de-
bris. By Friday, Nov. 3, they had determined
the cause Arson!
Suzie Skipper had this to say at the time
concerning the arson to then State Fife Mar-
shal Bill Nelson, "I happen to have three 3-
year-old grandchildren, and since you believe
this to be arson, I feel that they had no way of,
knowing that those children weren't inmy
building or if there were other people in other
buildings, and I am personally delighted to
know that this will be prosecuted and taken to
the fullest extent of the law"

Businesses rebound
The Suwannee Democrat found temporary
quarters in the. old doctor's office complex on
5th Street (next to the old hospital that has
since been demolished to make way for a
housing development). By Thanksgiving
weekend a new press had been installed for
printing in the current building housing the
Democrat at 211 Howard Street. After one
year of renovation, the Democrat moved all its
employees into the spacious 10,000 square-
foot building. At the grand re-opening of the
Suwannee Democrat, former Live Oak Mayor
Buddy Nott said he had followed the Democ-
rat for over 50 years and had seen it come
through flood and fire. Many obstacles were

placed in the way of rebuilding the newspaper,
Nott said, but the Ricketsons (owners Tom
and Lynnette) never lost sight of their goal to
rebuild. "You had confidence in us, and we
have confidence in you," Nott said.
Suzie's re-opened at first in a much smaller
store at the old Live Oak Barber location on
East Howard Street and later moved to her
current location at 109 North Ohio Ave. Two
buildings, one owned by John Arnold next to
Holiday Treasures and Bruce's between
Suzie's and the Suwannee Democrat were al-
ready closed. Both buildings were destroyed
when the burned ones were demolished. Only
two of the five businesses destroyed by the
fire ever re-opened.
Suzie Skipper was pleased with the commu-
nity response to local business people during
the aftermath of the fire but wants to continue
looking forward. "The community really
pulled together after the fire, for which all of
us that were affected will be forever grateful,"
said Skipper. She added, "After the fire and all
that it did to us, it is important to focus on the
positive and look to the future."

Arsonist pleads guilty
On November 17, 1997 after two years of
investigations, the trial of the arsonist came to
an abrupt halt when he pleaded guilty to 11
charges relating to the burning of the Suwan-
nee Democrat, Suzie's and Holiday Treasures
in' downtown Live Oak. The arsonist served
time in state prison and has since been re-
leased.

A new day
Months turned into years and after lots of
planning and negotiations and through dona-
tion of land, grants and private donations, the
city,of Live Oak was able to build a beautiful
city park complete with stage and landscaping
on the site of the fire on Oct. 20, 1995. The
city park, dedicated on November 25, 2003 is
named the Lynnette Ricketson Millennium
Park after the former owner of the Suwannee
Democrat.
"I'm proud of our park. It's a great asset to
our community," said Mayor Sonny Nobles.
He added, "It was a great community effort,
with a FRDAP grant, donated land and other
private contributors. And, I'm glad to see it
being used more and more."
This month each Friday you can enjoy
the Downtown Getdown, an event planned
simply to allow the community, to enjoy the
beautiful park as it is today.
Organizers of the eient hope those who
attend-during the 11 a.m. dunil I p m. tihne
will be downtown workers and shoppers
who will walk to Millennium Park at US
90 (Howard Street) and Pine Avenue to at-
tend each remaining exciting Friday Oct.
21 and 28. Just bring those tennis shoes to
work with you and slip them on at
lunchtime and walk on over to the park
where, you'll find 'food vendors, maybe arts
and crafts, music and even scarecrows!
Yes, in conjunction with the Downtown
Getdown, the third annual scarecrow con-
test'will also be part of the Fridays in Oc-
tober starting Oct. 21.
On the 10-year anniversary of the fire in
downtown Live Oak, the comer destroyed
in the blaze has made a significant turn-
around and Millennium Park, a bright spot
Where once devastation reigned, is a great
example of a community coming together
to make something good come from some-
thing so devastating. The park will always
be a beautiful reminder to generations to
core that fire destroyed the body but not
the soul, and rising up from the charred
ashes was clear evidence the Suwannee De-
mocrat and the community that surrounds
and upholds it is very much alive.

In every genre of music,
there are artists whose impact
is so great, they become syn-
onymous within the genre it-
self. Their music becomes the
epitome of its class, and an ex-
ample by which one can use to
define the greater whole. Yet,
only a few have made a lasting
impression as a group of men
that originated some 25 years
ago from Dahlonega, Ga. call-
ing themselves "Gold City."
, Twenty-five years since
their beginning, Gold City is
still thrilling listeners and con-
cert-goers with numerous hit
songs and- records. Gold City
has had many number one sin-
gles, won over 60 "Singing
News Fan" awards, including
six consecutive Group of the
Year honors, Album of 'the


Year, Song of the Year, and in-
dividuals of the year awards.
They are regularly featured on
national television ministries
such as TBN, INSP, 700 Club,
Cornerstone Church with John
Hagee and many, many more!
Gold City's mainly known
for their hit songs, "Midnight
Cry," John Saw," In My Robe
of White," and most recent
song, "It's Just Another Red
Sea." From the classic era of
Tim Riley, Mike Lefevre, Ivan
Parker and Brian Free to the
line-up of today consisting of
Bill Lawrence, Daniel Riley,
Jonathan Wilburn and Steve
Ladd, Gold City has been
blessing souls with their songs
and testimony all over the
country.
The Singing Reflectsons is a
group coming from the small
town of Trenton. The Reflect-
sons are known for their ex-
citement and enthusiastic pre-
sentation that appeals to audi-
ences everywhere they minis-


ter. The Singing Reflectsons is
in its 14th year of singing as a
family group. During these
years, the group has won
many awards. The readers of
The Gospel Post voted them
several times as their favorite
Group of the Year, Band of the
Year, and other individual
awards. Recently, Relectsons
released its first national sin-
gle, "There's Gonna Be a
Change," from its new album
titled "Prayer Changes
Things."
The Singing Reflectsons
consist of Dale Thigpen-lead,
Glen Thigpen-keyboard-bari-
tone, Leslie Thigpen-alto,
Bryant Thigpen-bass guitar
and Tommy Lee Thigpen-
drums.
You are invited to experi-
ence this unforgettable night
of Southern Gospel Music at
its best! For additional infor-

It was a must-win situation
for the Bulldogs. They came
through for themselves and the
fans, beating district opponent
Baker County 18-9. Even
though Suwannee is now 2-6
for the season, the win puts
Suwannee in a good position in
district play. The Dogs are tied
with Bishop Kenny and Jack-


son at 1-1 in district play.
Raines is top district dog with
an undefeated district record
and the district championship
pretty well sewed up. Baker
drops into the district cellar
with an 0-3 district record. That
leaves Suwannee's Friday
night game against Bishop
Kenny as a crucial factor in de-
ciding who will be district run-
ner-up. District runner-up will

Democrat Reponer
It was the last game of
the season for the Suwan-
nee JV Dogs. The\ starled
out slow but have steadily\
improved' "winning two of
their last three games. The-
Ninth-grade Dogs beat
GHS 19-12 Tuesday, Oct,
11 in the Dog House.
A good crowd turned out
to Watch Suwannee play
GHS. The junior Purple
Hurricanes came out run-
ning, showing some .speed
and making several first
downs in a row. But the JV
Dog defense got 'their act
together and stopped GHS
when Suwannee sacked the
GHS quarterback for a loss
and #71 'Larry Allen made
a critical tackle to force
GHS (to turn over the ball
on downs.
La'Tarus Haynes had a
great evening as Suwan-
nee's top running back.'
Haynes racked up a 25-


yard gain for a first down
and .Clay Kinard hauled
the ball to/ the two-yard
line. Kinard scored and 'the
PAT was good. Suwannee
went up 7-0 in the first
seconds of the second
quarter.
GHS fumbled the kick-
off and Suwannee's #56
Bryne Allen recovered on
the 15-yard line. Haynes
scored with 6:22 left in the
half. The PAT was wide
left and Suwannee went up
13-0.
Brandon Stratton had a
fine night. Stratton de-
flected a GHS pass in the
Purple Hurricanes next se-
ries followed by Suwannee,
sacking the quarterback.
The Dogs fumbled.the
ball close to the Goal line
and GHS" recovered in
Suwannee's next posses-
sion. GHS scored off the
mistake making it 13-6 at
the half.
Haynes had an awesome
punt return earl in the
third period, returning the


ball to the GHS .20, a 50-
yard ramble. Haynes got a
great block in the next play
and carried the ball to the
two-yard line for a first and
goal. Kinard scored with


2:31 left in the third,
, Suwannee went up 19-6.
The point-after attempt
was no good.
GHS scored again late in
the game but could not get


ahead of those Dawgs.
Suwannee won the game
19-12. This is the last JV
game of the season. Look
for several JV players to be
elevated to varsity soon.

where they turned it over on
downs.
A 30-yard pass play from
Tajhuane Roundtree to Kenny
Clayton put Suwannee on the
Baker 38-yard line. Yulee got a
first down for the Dogs on the
11-yard line, but the Dogs lost
the ball to a fumble. Baker
-scored off the Suwannee mis-
take and tied the game at 6-6
when Collis Givens blocked
the PAT.
Suwannee was penalized for
having 12 men on the field for
the Baker kick-off. This hap-
pened two times during the
game. Jason Cherry carried the
return to the 40 and then rushed
for a 54-yard gain. Mario
Hawthorne snagged a
1.oundtree pass in the end zone
for another Dog TD with 9:00
left in the half. The Dogs tried
for two points and failed. The
score went to 12-6.
Baker fought back, but in a
tremendous goal-line stand,
Suwannee held the Wildcats
and forced them to kick a field
goal. Michael "All Night"
Wright made a great tackle on"
third down to stop Baker's for-
ward progress. The field goal
was good from 33 yards, and
with 2:04 left in the third, the
score went to 12-9 with Suwan-
nee hanging on to, a narrow
.lead.
Tempers flared in the third
quarter. A Suwannee and a
Baker player got called for
fighting and each was ejected
from the game. The fourth
quarter began with the score
still at 12-9.
A great Ridgeway punt put
Baker on their own two-yard
line. The Wildcats struggled to
gain yards on the ground and
failed. Baker had to punt from

their own end zone. The Dogs
had a first 'and 10 on the Baker
34. But the Suwahnee offense
could not capitalize on this
good field position. Baker got
the 'ball back on their own 27.
Suwannee iced the winning
cake when Jason Cherry made
a game-winning interception
with 2:50 left to play. Cherry
intercepted the Baker pass on
the 50-yard line and ran it all
the way to the -13. Mario
Hawthorne caught a Roundtree
pass in the end zone and scored
with two minutes left in the
game. The two-point attempt
failed and the score was 18-9.
Baker fumbled the kick-off
and Chris Bevel recovered the
fumble. It was all over with
Suwannee winning the game
18-9.
First Federal Offensive Play-
er of the Game was #50 Tyler
Branche. Branche is the center
and works hard to win it on the
Line.
First Federal Defensive Play-
er of the Game was #9 Jason
Cherry. Cherry rushed for 64
yards and made the crucial,
game-winning interception in
the final moments of the game.
The Dogs travel to Jack-
sonville to Bishop Kenny Fri-
day to take on BK in a district
match. This game could be the
most important game of the
season for Suwannee. Take the
trip to the St. John's River and
cheer for the Bulldogs. Go

BIGFOOT is a true America
-success story, known and loved
across the country and around
the world!
It all began in the mid-1970s,
when Bob Chandler, then a St.
Louis, MO, construction con-
tractors, owned a FORD F250
4x4 pickup truck. Chandler used
his tough FORD truck on the job
and for off-road family ftin on
the weekends. But he found
ways to break even the toughest
of trucks, and that led to the dis-
covery that there was no place in
the Midwest to get 4x4 parts and
service. Recognizing a potential
market, the Chandlers started
Midwest Four Wheel Drive.
They still used their Ford 4x4 as
a work truck, and partly as a pro-
motional tool for their business.
They tried out new parts on the
truck, and kept making it bigger

Soon the truck itself became an,
attraction. In 1979. it did its first
paid e\ ent. a Denver'car show.
Truck pulls in arenas and stadi-
urns soon followed.
Then. n 1981, Chandler tried
something that fore\ er charged
the monster truck concept. It fiu-
eled an explosion of fan interest
and'led to a legion o nfujnigators'.
I He decided, just for ftun, to see if
lie could dri-e' BIGFOOT o er
a couple of Junk cars. A fe%\
months later, he duplicated the
stunt in a stadium shows. The rest
is histQri. In 1983. BIGFOOT
began a sponsorship association
%uth Ford Motor Company. In
that time. the BIGFOOT fleet,
has grown to 16 monster ma-


SR 51, US .129 and Mitchell
Road in" Suwannee County; and
CR 136, CR 152, CR 143, CR
249, CR,137. CR 251. CR 146,
CR 135;:CR 141, CR 150, CR
145 and US 41, SR 6, SR 25 in
Hamilton County. Recognizing
the danger presented to the pub-
lic by defective vehicle equip-
ment, troopers will concentrate
their efforts on vehicles being
operated with defects such as
bad brakes, worn tires and defec-
tive lighting equipment. In addi-
tion, attention will be directed to
drivers who would violate the
driver license laws of Flonda.
The Patrol has 'found these
checkpoints to be an effective
means of enforcing the equip-
ment and driver's license laws of


chinries and the Ford F series
pickup has become the world's
best selling vehicle.
Inspired. by the success of
BIGFOO)(-)T, ntrierous imitators
came forth in the middle 1980s.
Car crushing became a staple of
major truck pulling and.mud
racing events. But by 1987, car
crushing \\as no longer the hot
new thing. Gicen the strong au-
dience appeal of monster trucks,
the logical mo\e was to start
raidgt [he'm. Racinic\,iickly re-
placed exhibmnon car crislung.
Today multiple points series
take place across the country
and are witnessed by millions in
a w\eekl television series. ,
Chandler immediately leaped
to the forefront of monster truck
racing b\ using computer aided
design technology to create a.
new, generation of race trucks.

A healthy diet is a key component to controlling the blood sugar levels in
pregnant women who have gestational diabetes.
According to the American Diabetes Association,.
about 4 percent of all pregnant women in the United
States, are diagnosed with gestational diabetes. It is a,
type of diabetes that starts during pregnancy (usually
between the 24th and 28th week) when the body is
unable to make and use all the insulin it needs for
pregnancy. And without enough insulin, glucose (blood
sugar) cannot leave the blood and be changed to energy,.
causing a dangerous situation for both mother and baby.

Most women with gestational diabetes have no
symptoms indicating the presence of the disease, though
it's possible to experience extreme hunger, thirst or
fatigue. You are at increased risk if you are over age 30,
obese, have a family or personal history of diabetes or
previously gave birth to a baby who weighs more than 9
pounds or was stillborn. That's why you'll probably be
screened for gestational diabetes between the 24 and 28
week of pregnancy, when gestational diabetes can begin.

If you have gestational diabetes, here's what's
'happening inside your body. Your glucose levels
continue to rise from inadequate production of insulin.
The extra glucose can pass through the placenta to your
fetus, subsequently causing high sugar levels in your
baby. Receiving more energy than it needs at this stage
in life, your baby stores the extra energy as fat, creating
a larger-than-nornial baby, or macrosomia. These babies
may grow so large that a vaginal delivery becomes
unlikely. In addition, they may have jaundice, low-
glucose levels land be at higher risk for breathing
problems..

Treatment for gestational diabetes needs to be started
immediately. It may include a special diet, regular
exercise, insulinjections and/or regular blood tests.
Your doctor will devise plan that is safe and healthy
for you and your unborn baby.

Gestational diabetes usually goes away after
pregnancy. But it does put these women at a higher risk
for developing diabetes in their next pregnancy and later
in life. The best ways to prevent the future onset of
diabetes are to lose weight, eat a healthy diet and
exercise regularly

Dear Classified Guys,
When I started answering personal
ads I was really nervous about whom
I would meet. So I made up a "secu-
rity name" and fake occupation. I
used the name Zoe, my childhood
cat, and the last name Branch, the
street I grew up on. I also said I was
a flight attendant rather than an
office manager. My Zoe Branch iden-
tity was working out well until last
Saturday night. My date went so well
that we closed the restaurant and
continued talking over late-night cof-
fee. I should have taken the opportu-
nity that first night to tell him my little
secret, but I got scared when he said,
that he had major trust issues. The
doubting little voice in my head said
to wait. Now we are three glorious
dates later and he still calls
me Zoe. I have to tell him, t'.
but when and how? I don't ,
want him to dump me.

Cash: Well Zoe, although ,our
cat may be proud to know her name lives
on, your date may hat e a different opin-
ioin. If you were looking for an honest
relationship, this probably w wasn't the best
approach. '
Carry: Unfortunately, the future of this
relationship probably lies in his hands. It


Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze \


w


will depend on how well he takes the,
news of your little deception.
Cash: Short of legally changing you
name, you will have to be honest with
Mr. Right. Considering you've avoided
the conversation for three dates, it's not
very wise to wait any longer. I'm sure
he'd appreciate the news sometime,
before getting to the alter.
Carry: When ou schedule oiur next
date, maybe you should bring him some
flo\ ers and.candN. That typically seems
to work for us married guys when we do
something wrong
Cash: When you actually do sit down
to talk with yotu date, make sure your


new-found honesty shows through. He
needs to know that you are serious about
pursuing an honest and upfront relation-
ship with him.
Carry: Considering you have had
three "glorious" dates, there must be a
. spark between both of you. Explain your
apprehension about using your real name
and occupation. He's probably had expe-
riences through the personals as well so
he may be understanding of your per-
spective.
SCash: But if for some reason it doesn't
work out, at least you can tell him you
have to leave town on your next "flight
attendant" duty.


Truth or Dare
Most people who lie typically exhibit
a body language associated with not
telling the truth. To spot a liar, look for
their arms or legs to be crossed in a
defensive pose or see if they are avoid-
ing eye contact. The pupils of their
eyes may narrow, since lying is stress-
ful, or their speech may speed up. Liars
typically want to get it over with quick-
ly. You may also notice that their hands
approach their face, especially their
mouth, as if to hide the lie.

Name Dropping
Most of us use the name's given to us
at birth, but some famous people have
chosen to change names for their
careers. The famous 50's singer,
Chubby Checker, was born as Ernest
Evans. Rock star Elton John is really
Reginald Kenneth Dwight. Cher short-
ened her given name of Cherilyn
Sarkisian LaPierre. And rock star Alice
Cooper may not have made it to stage
as Vincent Damon Furnier.

Picture This
As a Classified Representative, I
take most of the calls from people
wanting to place personal ads in our
newspaper. The woman who called
me the other day had difficulty
conveying what she wanted in her
ad.
We started with the basics of her
age and interests, but she kept
changing her mind about what to say
then it came to her appearance.
"You'll have to excuse me," she
said. "I'm ha\ ing difficulty trying to
describe myself."
"Don't worry," I reassured'her
"Just try to be honest."
"That's the trouble," she
explained. "If I w anted to be honest,
I would have jus' sent in rni picture."
