LETTER TO THE EDITOR


Dear Editor:
It's time for Suwannee and
Lafayette Counties to unite in
supporting the proposed coal-
fired, 800-megawatt electric
power plant. The plant will be
required to opera,. ... "?or-
dance with all of the state and
federal permitting conditions
which are suppose to protect
both human health and our
environment.
Energy use throughout the
country is increasing, and
having a coal-fired plant's


operation will be unaffected
by the availability of oil sup-
plies. While no one wants a
plant "in their backyard," but
they have to be somewhere.
Florida's population is in-
creasing, and with it. the de-
mand for energy to live and
worn,

throughout his long life. He be-
gan farming on the family farm

ver, he met his future wife, Lu-
cille Lyons,, who was a teacher
at Central School. They were
married for over 60 years until
she preceded him in death in
1996. They moved, to Live Oak
soon after their marriage and
lived there for almost 60 years.
His ,strong belief in being a
productive citizen of the com-
munity led him to become a re-
spected businessman and politi-
cal leader' in Li\ e Oak.. He
owned and operated Vann's
Sausage Company., a neighbor-
hood grocery store, for many
years. As adult residents of the
county can tell you, a trip to
"Mr. Vann's Store" wasn't just
to buy sausage. The\ can recall
their time as children filling
small brown bags with just the
nght mix of penny candy while
their parents shopped and visit-
ed. He also ran a successful pig-
farming operation in the Hous-

resident of Carter House. His
special way of connecting \vith
people quickly earned him the
- -unofficial nickname of "The
Mayor" of Carter House. Vann
had a true zest for living and
loved being around people and,


talking. As one of his many
friends stated, "Henry's person-
ality was like a magnet. People
were naturally drawn to him
adults and children alike. Sim-
ply sharing a bit of his good hu-
mored banter made people feel
better about themselves and the
world for the rest of the day."

volve a ball, of sorts, that flies through the air
when thrown, or otherwise, hit by the person or
persons playing. The fly ball relay, race that I.
speak of is one that has really gone to the dogs ...
the sport for man and his four-legged best friend.
'Wellborn has become the hub of activity on Tues-
day afternoons when the Suwannee /Columbia
Counts team. Too Hot to Handle, meet, at 6 p.m.,
at the Wellbom Community Association (WCA)
property next to C- 10.
Fly ball is nationally sanctioned through the
North American Fly Ball Association (NAFBA).
It is a family-oriented sports activity that gives
dogs and their owners an opportunity to partici-
pate and.excel together. For more information on
this exciting sports activity, contact Ralph or

ical this time of year ...
of course ... isn't that
how it always seems to
be. The unusually
warm weather delayed
the spectacular, fall fo-
liage that comes with
Indian Summer and


cooler temperatures. And, though the last nine
days of their vacation were filled- with a cold,
soaking rain, six inches to be exact, Beanie said
there was a bright spot ... they got to eat lots of
Maine lobster and New England clams. But all
said and done, Beanie and Wayne are mighty glad
to be back home in sunny Wellborn ... after all,
they are Floridians now. Welcome home, Beanie
and Wayne.
Ghosts, goblins, and ghouls will be haunting
the outback Monday night, Oct. 31. WCA Presi-
dent Wayne Brooks would like to invite all of
Wellbom's neighborhood kids to dress up in their
favorite Halloween costumes and come trick or
treat with the WCA from 6:30-8 p.m. The WCA
is located on 8th Ave.
Jane Campbell would like to thank all those
who ha3e contributed money, food, medicines
..and other supphes towards the care and rescue of
animals that were effected by Hurricane Katrina.
Though much has been accomplished, Jane says
there are animals still in dire need. For informa-
tion concerning a contribution of food, money,
shelter or other needed supplies, call Jane Camip-
bell at 386-963-3196.
It's' that time ... keep our troops and their fam-
ilies in prayer ... help those in need ... the way-
faring stranger ... your neighbor ... tell those you
love you love them ... I leave you with the words
of British actor Peter Ustinov, who said, "Life is
unfair, but remember, sometimes it is unfair in
your favor."

Swaziland is a land-locked
country in Southern Africa
bordered by Mozambique and
South Africa. It is the last ab-
solute monarchy in Southern
Africa ruled by His Majesty
King Mswati. South Africa is
four hours by road and 45
minutes to an hour by plane.
Swaziland is a small coun-
try of 1.2 million people, but
more than 40% of the popula-
tion is infected with HIV.
That is why the
mother/daughter team did the
large scale HIV/AIDS pre-
vention, education and de-
stigmatization summit there.
The Kingdom of Swaziland
has the unpleasant distinction
of having the highest rate of
HIV/AIDS in the world; be-
ing ranked number 1 since.
December 2004.
The women chose to be
driven to The Kingdom of
Swaziland so Manning could
see the country side since
Williams is no stranger to the.
county, having served there
previously, and wanted her
mother to see, the beautiful
countryside.
While in Swaziland, South-
ern Africa, Manning was in-
strumental in working with
the youth from the'USA and
Africa in the first annual
HIV/AIDS AfricAmerica
Youth Summit.
The Youth Summit was a
three-day event that had
games, HIV awareness class-
es, safety classes and feed
back sessions. Over 100 stu-
dents from different schools
were brought to a hotel con-
ference, center to stay for
three days with room. and
board provided with funds
raised by The AfricaAmerica
Youth Summit committee,
made up 'of Americans and
Africans working together.
The summit culminated with
a 10K HIV/AIDS Awareness
walk and an HIV/AIDS
awareness concert at the Roy-
al Swazilan d National Stadi-
um withh famous singers.
dancers, poets, rappers and,
comedians from Southern
Africa.
W\illiams was the host of
the concert, along with Pastor.
Bongani of Swaziland.
While in Swaziland, Man-
ning and all the members of
Project Africa Global Interna-
tional met with the Minister
of Health and Social Welfare
and Her Majesty Inkhosilati
(means Queen) Lantentesa, a
wife of King Mswati III.
Manning and the Project
Africa Global team visited an
orphanage, Camp Monarch,
that was adopted last year by
Project-Africa and delivered
toys, books, back packs,
shoes, a sewing machine and
treats. for the children. Man-
ning says this trip was one of
the most important events in
her life. She made many won-
derful friends while in South
Africa and the Kingdonm of
Swaziland. She also visited'
HIV/AIDS patients in hos-
. pices while in Swaziland.
Manning said she really en-
joyved the church services on
SSundays. .
NMarming also worked as '
Support staff for the nurses
and doctors to make life easi-'
Ser for the workers after they
,finished working around the'
Countryside' each day.
Williams said there were sutr-'
igeons performing surgery at
hospitals, ob-gyn physicians
delivering babies and doing
surgery and nurses working
along side these American'
andAfrican physicians.
The group shipped 14 pal-


,.lets of medicines, .medical'
supplies, toys, clothes, shoes,
wheelchairs, crutches, can-
dies, books, school supplies,
quilts. eyeglasses, 'sewing'
machines and so much more
for the people of Swaziland,
Williams said. "My mother
:.assisted us in delivering the
products to the different orga-
nizations that needed them,"
she ,added.. ,
"This trip was a; very..im-
portant trip, and my 'mother
said it taught her to be so very
thanfikful for the small plea-


sures she has available to her
each and every day," Williams
noted.
Manning assisted her
daughter by going to meetings
to help with fund-raising in
the Kingdom of Swaziland.
Once there, they met with the
Chinese ambassador, the di-
rector of the Global AIDS
Fund, the United States Em-
bassy and the Emakhosikatis
(Queens of the Kingdom of
Swaziland), all of whom con-
tributed to 'the AfricaAmerica
Youth HIV/AIDS Summit.
"My mother and I went with
Queen Lantentesa to a rehabil-
itation center, Cheshire
Homes, that the Queen has as
a pet project for the dedica-
.tion," Williams said. "She has
asked us to be involved with,
her in getting support for this
center. We were able to donate
a sewing machine, crutches,
walkers and hand made quilts
;for the residents living there
who have had strokes, neuro-
logical accidents and
HIV/AIDS," Williams, said.
"They have asked if we could
bring speech therapists, physi-
cal therapists and occupation-
al 'therapists on our next mis-
sion to work at Cheshire
Homes and 'teach the staff in-
novative ideas from the
USA."
The mother/daughter team
was in Southern Africa from
Sept. 2 until Sept. 20 and both
are looking forward to return-
ing again next year.

DRIVER FLIPS CAR AND LOADED TRAILER ON NOBLES FERRY ROAD: Leroy Christopher Toske was driving his Geo Tracker

Many Uses for Blood Thinners
Anti-coagulants, also known as blood thinners, are prescribed to millions
of people to treat and prevent life-threatening effects when clots block
blood vessels. Blood clotting, the mechanism by which components in the
blood stick together to, form small solid clots, is a natural and vital
function of the body. More than 30 substances in the blood are known to
affect clotting and it is essential to get the balance of substances right.
Several widely-used drugs stop clots from forming. These are prescribed
to people who are known to be at risk, including people with artificial
heart valves, who have had a heart attack, who have had, a stroke, who
have had or are at risk of deep vein thrombosis, suffering from atrial
fibrillation, undergoing orthopedic surgery, and people tu ith angina. The
blood's natural anti-clotting substance, heparin, is given by inection.
while warfarin (Coumadin), the mostly widely presLnbed ant-coagulani. is,
taken orally. Anti-coagulants help pre% eni ne% clo s from forming or ian
existing clot from getting larger. The main side effect of taking anti-
coagulants is increased likelihood of bleeding Talk to your doctor or
pharmacist if you have questions about your anti-coagulant medications.

Rain....it's been raining a little
over the weekend. Thank you,
Lord. The water is much needed,
although I sure wouldn't like to
be getting what's been flowing
down in Southern Florida this
week and in Cancun last week.
What a terrible mess.
Did you ,see all those semi
trucks going to the old Badcock
distribution center last week to.
pick up millions of bottles of wa-
ter for the folks in South Florida?
Our governor isn't always right,
but he has gotten it down pat how
to deal with, hurricanes! Every-
thing is done in advance and help
is set and ready to go the moment
it's safe to move in...no fighting
between mayors and govemors
in Florida over getting help to the
citizens. Jeb Bush has certainly
impressed me with his ability to
.select people to do the job in the
emergency area and there's
seemingly no rock unturned
when it comes to finding out
what needs to be done to be ready
at the right time and then getting
it done.
Tragedy has hit the family of a
local man who was hit and killed
on Helvenston early Sunday
morning and left dead beside the
road. His body was found early
Sunday morning but no identifi-
cation was found on him nor was
the persons) found who either
intentionally or accidentally hit
him. Although the Hispanic man
was obviously here working, he
has family somewhere who are
going to be sorely grieved when


they learn of their loved one's
death. May God bless the griev-
ing family in their time of need.
The weather has been perfect
for planting flowers this past
week and hopefully this week
will be also. I'm out there dig-
ging, planting, watering and
messing around in the yard every
chance I get. It just feels so good!
Now is the beginning of the best
season for planting most shrubs
and trees so head on over to your
favorite place to buy plants and
grab a truckful, plant them and
watch them just thrive with wa-
tering. When spring comes, they
will already have their feet at-
tached firmly to the earth around
them and be ready to jump start
the season. Remember, most
plants basically sleep the first
year, creep the second year and
leap the third year. It's true, check
it but. Now's a good time to find
nice lower azalea limbs, scrap the
limb, dig a trench underneath it,
bury it with dirt over it and put a
brick over the top of the limb to
hold it firmly while it takes root
By next fall, you should have a
nice new azalea plant
gro\Ming...just cut off the limb be-
tween the new root and the old
limb! See, it's simple to grow
stuff. If you haven't already
mulched Nour plants for winter,
especially azaleas. get to it right
away. Pine straw is great and
lea% es just add to the protection.
Once they're protected, you can
just about forget about them for
the winter. They'll be just fine.

HUNTER
Baxter, will submit progress
reports at 30 day intervals to
Public Works Director Willard
Hewiett.
City Manager Hugh Williams
prefaced the council's
unanimous vote by endorsing
the plan.
"We felt strongly that the in-
spections department found cer-
tain things but it came to light
that Mrs. Hunter.is not running
that type of an operation
anymore- she wants to run a
residential boarding house."
Williams said
"Our ultimate goal is to pro-
vide a safe environment for
these old folks. I feel we have ac-
complished what we set out to
do."
Mrs. Hunters problems with
the city began when she applied
for a license to operate an Adult
Congregate ',Living .Facility.
(ACLU) with the Department of
Health and Rehabilitative Ser-
vices (HRS). Part of the review
process required city and county
inspectors to visit the home.
Hewiett. County Sanitarian
O.J. Baker, Fire Chief Howard
Wright and HRS inspectors
visited the home in February
and March.
Baker concluded 'that the:
facility was an institution
because he observed three pa-
Lients either confined to beds
and wheelchairs, .,.
Baied -* Baker's report.
Hewiett found seven building
code violations in the home.
Violation four stated that. "a
Type VI construction building
(wood frame) cannot.be used for
institutional occupancy."
Chief Wright inspected the
home on March 15"'and listed 19
fire code violations, also based
on Baker's conclusion that the
facility was being used as an in-
stitution.
Mrs. Hunter's application for
an ACLF was denied. The city
held a hearing and gave Mrs.
Hunter 30 days in which to
make a good faith effort to com-
ply with the residential building
codes or have her occupational
license revoked.
That hearing grew into a semi-
formal proceeding on May 6.
Slaughter objected to letters
from Baker and Wright being
read because the two men were
not available for cross examina-
Ltion. He also contended that the
conditions which the three men
had observed no longer existed.
The hearing became emotional
at times, with proponents of
Mrs. Hunter defending her con-
duct.
"People can't get in other
homes and they need the care,"
Martha Crawford said. "A need
the place. I love Mrs Hunter."
City Attorney Ernie Sellers
concluded at the end of the hear-
ing that there was ample
evidence for the council to vote
either way.
In other action, the council
heard from Jim Pittman. a
Department. of Transportation
representative. Pittman told the
council that according to the
functional road classification
plan, which goes into effect July
' 1. 1982. the city will own all of
Walker Avenue within the city.
The city and county have been


ConUnued

at odds over who should replace
a potholed portion of the road
south of the Suwannee County
Mall.
City Manager Hugh Williams
reported that the city has receiv-
ed the $9.400 from HRS to in-
stall fluoridation equipment. He
said the system, which is next to
foolproof, should be operational
by July 1. The money will pay
for the equipment and a two
year supply of the chemical.
The council upheld the zoning
board's denial of a zoning
change for Clyde Granville.
Granville wants to change 21
acres he owns west of Railroad
Avenue from single family
residential to general in order to
build a mobile home park. The
council said GraniDlle had a
good argument for rezoning the
area for a higher density, but
that general zoning was inap.
propriate since the area is
dominated by single family
dwellings.
The council approved the pur-
chase ol two more used highway
patrol cars and announced that
monday there will be a
workshop on the Planned
Residential Development which
is scheduled to be built on
Newbern Road.

acres of cropland each year in a,

The Ross's combine is equip-
ped with a mulching machine at-

pulverizes the residue. The crop
residue is then disced (once) into

soybeans are planted, fertilized,

Janet Schrader
Democrat Reporter
With Suwannee's win Friday
night over Bishop Kenny, the
Dogs drew one step closer to
snagging a spot in the playoffs.
In spite of two critical Dog
mistakes that gave Bishop
Kenny two touchdowns, the
Dogs prevailed and won 21-14.
Thirty minutes before the
game was due to start, a mon-
soon broke over Jacksonville
sending floods of rain pouring
out of the sky for over an hour.
Players, cheerleaders, fans and
officials hovered under shelter
as the skies darkened, lightning
flashed .and rain hammered'
down. The game was a crucial
district match. The officials
wanted it played.. So everyone
waited. At 9:30 p.m., a full two
hours of rain .delay, the game
started.
The crowd was thin on both
sides of the field. The weather

winning touchdown for the Dogs in the fourth 'quarter. Photo: Paul Buchanan


scared away all but the
staunchest fans. Suwannee's
head coach has finally settled
on an offense for the Dogs.
Working out of an I formation,
the Dogs ran the ball for most
of the night, a good choice with
. the field a sloppy mess. The
Dogs used Jarrett Yulee and
Brandon Allen as their two
workhorse running backs.
The Dogs had the field first
and immediately began mov-
ing the ball downfield. Taj
Roundtree took the ball in for
Suwannee's first touchdown.
With 9:16 left to play in the
first quarter, the Dogs had
struck. Cameron Ridgeway's
point-after kick was good..
Suwannee led 7-0.
Coach Bennett had stated
prior to the game that Bishop
Kenny would run the ball.
Contrary to this expectation,
BK came out in their first pos-
session throwing. Bishop Ken-
ny moved the ball rapidly

down field with a series of
short passes. Suwannee's Kei-
th Brown picked off a BK pass
and ran for 20 yards. The Dogs
had.the ball on the BK 35.
A quick Roundtree pass to
#81 Brandon Cook landed
Suwannee on the 15. BK held
and Ridgeway tried for a field
goal. The field goal was no
good and the Dogs turned the
ball over to Bishop Kenny on
the 12 as the first quarter end-
ed.
Michael Wright and a host
of Suwannee defensive backs
began to put pressure on the
Bishop Kenny quarterback.
BK SquitErbjack s-perit a lot of
time pushing up sod during the
game. Wright sacked him for a


loss forcing a punt. .
After the punt, Suwannee
had great field position on the
BK 35. Yulee gained three and
Allen got the first down on the
20. Roundtree was sacked but
came back and tossed one to
Mario Hawthorne for 16 yards.
It was a fourth and 12 situa-
tion. Roundtree passed to
Shaun Brewet: It was good for
a first down on the 10. Allen
carried the ball to the one and
Yulee scored with 4:21 left in
the half. Ridgetwa 's PAT was
'good. Suwannee was up 14-0.
Bishop Kenny .fumbled in
their next possession. Terrell
Roman recovered it for the
Dogs, on the BK 35. Suwannee
was unable to capitali2e"on the
fumble and turned the ball over
to BK on downs. Lee Laxton


sacked the Bishop Kenny
quarterback once again and the
half ended with Suwannee in
the lead 14-0.
Bishop Kenny, playing out
of the shotgun, came out
throwing after the half. Wright
and Starling caught the Bishop
Kenny quarterback in the.
backfield again. Laxton sacked
him after that. Bishop Kenny
carried the ball to the Dog 20
and tried for a field goal. It was
no good and Suwannee took
over. But Suwannee couldn't
advance and gave the ball back
to Bishop Kenny on downs.
Once again Suwannee's de-
fense took it to the BK quarter-
back. Terrell Roman :arid
Derek Philpot sacked him.
Then Brewer threw him for a
huge loss after a bad snap.


Bishop Kenny was on their
third down with 26 yards to get
a first. They punted.
Suwannee's offense fumbled
and BK recovered on their own
47. Bishop Kenny's quarter-
back went down to three dif-
ferent Dogs three different
times and Bishop Kenny had
to punt again. But Bishop Ken-
ny intercepted a Roundtree
pass in the closing seconds of
the third quarter and scored in
the first seconds of the fourth.
In Suwannee's; next series
they fumbled and Bishop Ken-
ny recovered on the Dog eight-
yard line. BK scored. With 10
minutes left in the game, the
score was tied at 14.
The Dogs did not take their
misfortune lying down. In the
next series, the Dogs made a


steady trek downfield. Yulee
made a 37-yard run for a
Suwannee first down on the
Bishop Kenny 20. Roundtree
got a huge first down on the
five-yard line. Allen carried
the ball in for a Dog touch-
down with 7:-15 left to play.
The PAT was good and Suwan-
nee was once again in the lead
21-1,4.
The Dogs held Bishop Ken-
ny for the remainder of, the
game. The final score was 21-
14. This was a huge win for the
Dogs. Friday they play Jack-
son in the Dog House: Jackson
beat Raines last Friday to
change everything in our dis-
trict. Raines is 3-1. Bishop
Kenny is 2-2. Suwannee and
Jackson are both tied at 2-1 go-
ing into the Friday night game.


Baker is in the district cellar at
0-4 If Suwannee beats Jackson
Friday, Raines is the district
champ and Suwannee is the
runner-up. If Jackson wins,
they take the district champi-
onship and Raines is the dis-
trict runner-up,
First Federal Offensive
Player of the Game was Bran-
don Allen. Allen was a work-
horse for Suwannee as a run-
ning back and scored the win-
ning touchdown.
First Federal Defensive
Player of the Game was Keith
Brown for his crucial intercep-
tion.
Come out and support 'the
Dogs as they play this critical
district -match Friday mniht
against Jackson. Game time is
7:30 p.m. Go Dogs!

ing seniors to pay for fishing
and hunling licenses.
"Florida's seniors are
among the FWC's most val-
ued partners. Many of them
support our fish and wildlife
conservation efforts by do-
nating their time and con-
tributing mone\ by voluntar-
il purchasing licenses."
FWC Executive Director
Ken Haddad said. "We ap-


preciate their efforts and
their continued support. We
have no interition of placing
an undue burden on seniors
who can't afford to pay." '
In an effort to plan proac-
tively for fish and wildlife
conservation programs,
FWC began developing a
business plan .to ensure the
financial stability of its pro-
grams for 'the next five
years. Throughout this
process, the agency has been
exploring all possible solu-
tions and has worked with


Floridians to get their per-
spectives on how to deal
with funding shortfalls.
A large portion of FWC's
budget comes from user
fees, primarily licenses, per-
mits and specialty license
plate fees. One of the sug-
gestions the FWC received
was to consider repealing
the senior exemption, be-
cause federal-matching dol-
lars are, in part, tied to the
number of paid license hold-
ers.
"That federal funding is


important, but we believe we
can come up with a creative
solution that will enable us
to capture those dollars
without having to charge se-
niors directly," Haddad said.
Haddad added that the
agency will continue work-
ing with residents to ensure
Florida's fish and wildlife
conservation programs re-
main financially stable. The
FWC does not plan to sub-
mit any exemption or fee in-
crease proposals during the
2006 legislative session.

SHunters taking migratory
game birds in Florida are re-
quired to have a no-cost migra-
tory.bird permit either checked
or attached to their Florida
hunting license. In order to re-
ceive this permit, hunters have
to fill out a short questionnaire'
when they purchase their hunt-
ing license." The information
they provide helps the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service get a
better assessment on how
many birds are harvested each
year. .
IThe FWC suggests hunters
peruse the "2005-06 Florida
Hunting Regulations Hand-
book" and the "2005-06 Mi-
gratory Game Bird Regula-

Dove hunting, one of Flori-
da's favorite hunting sea-
sons, began recently, and
other migratory game bird

corner.
Hunters may take mourn-
ing and white-winged doves
during three hunting periods
statewide. First phase runs
through Oct. 24, second
phase is Nov. 12-27 and
third phase runs Dec. 10. -
Jan. 8. Shooting hours for
the first phase are noon to
sunset, and for the second
and third phases, shooting'
hours are one-half hour be-
fore sunrise to sunset. The
daily bag limit is 12, but
only four may be white-
winged doves.
Snipe season is Nov. 1 -

ing hours are one-half hour
before sunrise to sunset.

In addition to having a
hunting license, a migratory
bird permit is also required
to take migratory game birds
in Florida. In order to re-
ceive this permit, hunters
have to fill out a short ques-
tionnaire when they pur-
chase their hunting license.
The information they pro-
vide helps the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service get a better
assessment on how .many
birds are harvested each
year.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) suggest
hunters peruse the 1-2005-
06 .Migratory Bird Regula-
tionsE .brochures and the
112005-06 Florida Hunting
Regulations handbook at

TAYLOR COUNTY,
Oct. 9, Officer Matt
Reynolds responded to a com-
plaint of dogs running deer on
private property without per-
mission. When Reynolds ar-
rived at the property, the own-
er of the, property had already
caught the dogs and he imme-
diately turned the dogs over to
Reynolds. The landowner
gave Reynolds an affidavit
stating the dogs were running,
deer. In a short time, Reynolds
located the owner of the dogs
and the subject was, issued a
citation for violation of the


hunter responsibility rule.
Oct. 12, Officers Reynolds
and Billy Giles worked a night
hunting detail in Steinhatchee
Falls WMA. Over the' last sev-
eral weeks, the officers have
been seeing several big bucks
feed, in new clear-cuts off of
the highway. During their sur-
veillance of the clear-cuts,
they watched a truck shine the
clear-cuts for over 20 minutes
and allowed the truck to leave
ihe area without making a
stop. After approximately 30
minutes, the same truck re-
turned and. shot at a deer ap-
proximately 100 yards away
from their position. The offi-
cers immediately initiated a
stop, and during the search,
but was unable to locate a
firearm. The subject was be-
ing uncooperative so the offi-
cers called K-9 Officer
Leonard Bailey and his dog
Buddy to do a search of the
area. After a very short period
of time, Buddy-located a .223
rifle in the thick brush adja-
cent to the subjects vehicle.
The officers also located- a
spent .223 shell. After the
above evidence was located,
the subject confessed to shoot-
ing at a deer and was cited for
attempting to take deer with
gun and light, possession of a
gun in a closed WMA, and in-
terference with a Fish and
Wildlife Officer during an in-
vestigation.

ASK DR. MANTOOTHI


0: What is an inlay?
A: An inlay is a tooth filling that is made
outside the mouth and then inserted into
a prepared tooth. It is considered a
permanent' filling as opposed to a
temporary' one. The difference between
an inlay and an amalgam filling is that
your dentist installs the. amalgam right
into your tooth while you sit in the chair.
An inlay is made at a dental laboratory
based on 'an Impression or mold taken
from an excavated tooth. Cast gold is
one of the standard materials used in
inlays. It makes n extremely strong inlay.
Its strength is far more than that of an
amalgam filling. A drawback to an inlay is
that it is fitted to the tooth with cement. If
the inlay has been at all mismeasured,
any gaps are filled by the cement, which
can wash out over time and leave a leak
in the restoration. Bonded composite
inlays made of plastic materials have a
better seal but may not be as durable.
Talk with your dentist about whether an.
inlay is right for you.

VIALS OF LIFE: Live Oak Kiwanis club members work together to assemble Vial of Life kits. The kits
provide emergency medical personnel in an emergency situation with information about any med-
ications you are taking, allergies and past or present medical conditions. They look for a sticker
placed on your door and at eye level on the refrigerator which alerts them to find the vial. The in-
formation inside alerts them which procedures to follow and relay to hospital staff: For more infor-

Florida Farm Bureau hails


Rural landowners are
cheering a judge's decision
that confirms a Brevard
County family's ownership
of land it has farmed, paid
taxes on and occupied for
generations.
A Brevard County Circuit
Court judge ruled against the
state's attempts' to oust
David Smith and his family
from land that borders on
Lake Poinsett to which they
hold record title based on a
1906 deed conveyed by the
state.
In 1995, the State of Flori-
da sued Smith and his fami-
ly, alleging that much of the


land in question lay below a
boundary commonly known
as the ordinary high water
mark. Monday, Judge Bruce
W. .Jacobus ruled the state
was wrong in claiming the
high water mark extended
almost three miles from
what "a person of common
intelligence would clearly
recognize as the boundary of
the lake."
In fact, Judge Jacobus
ruled that, using the state's
definition of the high water
mark, an existing subdivi-
sion would be sitting on sov-
ereign land o'f the state of
Florida.

UF experts help bring agriculture to classrooms


To help Florida school-
children understand farm-
ing and its impact on their
lives, University of Florida
experts are contributing to
a' statewide program that
enables teachers to incor-
porate agricultural educa-
tiot0 in a variety of courses.
Florida Agriculture in the
Classroom,' or FAITC, of-
fers free or nominally'
priced materials suitable
for students from pre-K to
through grade 12 to public,
and private school teach-
ers, said Lisa Gaskalla, ex-
ecutive director of the.pro-
gram. Although the pro-
gram is houLsed at UF's In-
stitute of Food and Agri-,
cultural Sciences, or
UF/IFAS, it is an indepen-
dent organization funded,
by sales of the agricultmire
specialty license plate, and
supported by UF/IFAS,
Florida agriculture industry
organizations and the
Florida Department of
Agriculture arid Consumer
Services. .
"Many children think

food comes from the gro-


cery store," Gaskalla said.
"Farming may be in a fam-
ily's background,, but it's
generally two or more gen-
erations back. For us, the
challenge is to make agri-
culture relevant to these
kids, and provide informa-
tion in a form that's practi-
cal for teachers to use."
FAITC offers an array of
grade-specific lesson plans
that use agricultural topics
to teach language arts,
math, science and social
studies lessons, she said.,A
typical examplel.gives stu-
dents citrus juice produc-
tion data and teaches them'
about percentages by ask-
ing them to calculate how
much production has
changed from one year to
another.
The, program includes
four other 'features,
Gaskalla said. One, pro-
vides grants to pay for,
school gardens and agricul-
tural field trips. Another
brings small. lending li-
braries called Ag Learning
Barns to school where
teachers can check out


agriculturally themed
books, puzzles and videos
for students.
The third feature, AgriS-
marts, has officers from
The National FFA Organi-
zation visit schools to dis-
cuss everyday items that
come from the farm, she
said. The fourth, Ag Litera-
cy Day, brings FFA offi-
cers, farmers, ranchers and
industry representatives to
schools to read a designat-
ed children's book about
agriculture to students.
During the 2004 calendar
year, FAITC reached more
than 5,800 teachers and
more than 229,000 stu-
dents, a 71 percent increase
in teachers and a 26 per-
cent increase in students
reached compared with
2003, Gaskalla said.
Primary funding for the
program comes from. sales
of Florida's agriculture
specialty license plate,
known as the Ag Tag, one
of more than 100 specialty
license plates created by
the state legislature and
used to raise funds for


charitable causes, she said.
The Ag Tag costs $22 more
than a regular tag, $20 of
which goes, to FAITC. In
2004, 16,346 Ag Tags were
sold, generating about
$327,000 for the program.
"The state funds are a
starting point, but volun-
teers really make .the pro-
gram what it is," Gaskalla
said. "They compound the
impact of the Ag Tag dol-
lars many times over."
Volunteers from
UF/IFAS help write the
curriculum materials, serve
on FAITC's board of direc-
tors, work in outreach pro-
grams, build and transport
the Ag Learning Barns, and
host teacher. workshops,
she said.
UF/IFAS extension staff
find the Ag Learning Barns
are a great way to reach
schools, said Monica
Brinkley, an extension
agent in Liberty County
and 'county facilitator for
FAITC. The Ag Learning
Barns are sets of book-
shelves built to look like
small, red barns; volunteers


move them from school to
school during the year.
"I applied for and re-
ceived funding to build an
Ag Learning Barn last
year," Brinkley said. "Once
the barn was placed in a
school, I offered training to
the teachers on how to use
the curriculum materials
and incorporate agriculture
into lessons in science, lan-
guage skills, math and his-
tory. I had a lot of teachers
sign uIp, and some of them
went on -to apply for grants
themselves."
Teachers like the lesson
plans because they are con-
venient, including informa-
tion for the teacher and
readings and worksheets
for the students, said
Cyanne Williams, a teacher
at Archer Community
School near Gainesville.
"The materials are so
practical," Williams said.
"My kids can study .Florida
history and practice their
reading skills using the
handouts we receive. When
we talk about crop produc-
tion then and now, my stu-


dents use math to compare
crop values. When we went
on a field trip to a working
farm, part of our lunch was
grown in our pioneer gar-
den at school, using infor-
mation from FAITC."
The program is a state
version of a national pro-
gram, Agriculture In The
Classroom, created in 1981
by private and public enti-
ties to promote agricultural
literacy on a national scale,
said Larry Arrington,
UF/IFAS dean for exten-

sion. Each state runs its
own independent program;
Florida's began in 1986.
"It is critical that our
youth understand where
their food comes from and
the important role that
agriculture plays in our
state's economy," Arring-
ton said. "FAITC is one of
our most effective allies, in
connecting with youth on
ag awareness."

only been since the late

have always had the most ad-

had the choice of buying
poor quality golf equipment

professional quality equip-

that golf equipment should
be fit to the individual golfer
is a relatively new idea.

What happens when you are
Service manager for a large
North Florida car dealership
and your service department
has excelled as one of the best
in the Jacksonville Division?
1' qI If you are service manager
"',' Harold Bundy of Eddie Accar-
di Chevrolet-Mazda in Lake
City, you go to the Richard
Petty Driving Experience at
Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Bundy and parts manager
Mike Cason were part of eight
dealers who were rewarded
with a trip to the driving expe-
rience.
"We were very pleased with
out efforts by our whole ser-
vice department," said Bundy.
"We were high achievers in
employee training and certifi-
cation, customer sales and sat-
isfaction and accessory sales.
Bundy and his parts manag-
f er began the driving experi-
r Harold Bundy is ence school at 7:30 a.m.
Personnel. It was an all-day event
which featured 1 1/2 hours of
classroom instruction and 4 1/2
[H hours of track time.
A total of 18 laps were run.
Bundy's top speed behind
the wheel of his 600 horse-
powered stock car was 142
miles-per-hour; Cason's high
speed was 136.
"We ran iron cast engines in
the cars that provide a longer
life expectancy than the 800
horsepowered aluminum en-:
gines used by NASCAR,"
Bundy explained.
S "We were running these
stock cars at 75 percent of
their.potential.
"Speeds at Atlanta run in the
lower 190s. for the profession-
als for an average lap."
Bundv went o( to saN that
there was much more to dri-
ving laps at Atlanta than is

11TH STREET "I have a new-found respect
Z for the professional drivers,"
SL he stated.
- "At my top speed, I had to
:" 7 take most of the track to make
-, my turns.
"NASCAR drivers can go
into the turns much faster and
. -..-- run side-by-side with other
competitors. .
"I was. also surprised at the
| endurance driving requires.
After completing my laps, I
'i was very tired and sore from
the bouncing of the race car
against me.
"The professionals are true
athletes."
Bundy explained that the
whole Richard Petty Driving
>Experience program was "top-

"The 18 to 20 employees of
the RPDE were very accom-

S "After the day-long class
was completed, the partici-
pants filled out forms that
would judge the school.
"There concerns were the
same as ours at Eddie Accardi
Ford F-I 50 about CSI (customer satisfac-
: ~tion index).
!'"They wanted to know what
rE they could change differently

ence, "he said."

In the. 1990s, the popularity
of golf as a game and the tran-
sition of the sport to an every
man support instead of a sport
for the elite caused an explo-"
sion of the number of compa-
nies offering golf, equipment
for sale as well as the number
Sof offerings of different styles
"models; and sizes of equip-
mnent.-Todai,. golf club profes-
sionals have been joined by
professional club makers and
club fitting technicians to offer
the widest variety of brands,
models, sizes and materials
ever in an effort to fit golfers
with the proper set of clubs.
Whether the golf club is
bought new or used, the most
important factor in club selec-
tion is whether it fits the indi-
vidual for shaft flex, length and
head design. Before you buy
your first or next set of golf
clubs, consider a visit to your
local golf professional or pro-
fessional club maker to be fit-
ted. It's much more economi-
qal to buy the right club or set
of clubs one time than to buy

Will be in Concert on Sunday, November 6 at 7:00 p.m.
At Live Oak First Baptist Church :


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
manutaciurer's guidelines and instructions.
* To avoid CO poisoning, never use a generator indoors or in
attached garages. Only operate the generator outdoors in a
well-ventilated, dry area from air intakes to the home.
* To avoid electrocution, plug individual appliances into the
generator using heavy duty, outdoor rated cords with a wire
gauge adequate for the appliance load.
* If connecting into the house wiring is necessary on a
temporary basis, homes must have a transfer switch
installed by a licensed electrician. A transfer switch allows


your house to receive power directly from a portable generator
as opposed to through the main circuit breaker normally .
supplied by SVEC. Transfer switches isolate the circuits
supplied by the generator and prevent backfeeding -
inadvertently energizing circuits in both systems. ;
*Backfeeding can most commonly occur when a generator i
connected directly to the electric panel or circuit in a home.
Feeding power back into the utility system during an outage will
energize the transformer serving the house and could pose a
serious threat to line and service and tree crews working to
restore power in the area who may not know they are working
with an energized line.


If you desire to obtain a transfer, switch for residential
use the cooperative has approved a meter socket
based transfer switch by GENERLINK model number
MA23-N or S. Member would purchase the transfer
switch through GENERLINK (1-800-886-3837 or
www.globalpowerproducts.com) and contact the
cooperative to schedule installation at no charge.


Tickets for "Greater Vision" are S".50 each and may be purchased at the church office located
at 401 West Howard Street. as -\ell as the New Life Bible Bookstore. Cheek & Scott Drugs

W When you need an obstetrician to deliver your baby, or a
neurosurgeon in an emergency situation, will you be able to find
one? More and more, doctors are becoming dissatisfied with their
careers and are encouraging their children to follow other career
paths, leaving large holes in certain specialties, including obstetrics
and neurosurgery.
According to a .recent survey by The" Doctors Company, the
nation's largest physician-owned medical liability insurance
company, more than two thirds of the physicians surveyed said they
would not encourage their children to pursue a career in medicine.
The reason is simple:'Doctors want to protect their children from the
stress of a career in medicine that offers fewer and fewer rewards.
A generation ago, things were very different. Two-thirds of doctors
surveyed who had physician parents were encouraged by their
parents to become a doctor. Where once doctors were revered, now
they are more likely to be sued, and in 80 percent of cases, it's not
because they made a mistake, but because the outcome was not what
the patient had hoped, despite the physician's best efforts,
The ultimate result is that the people we could once count on to go
to medical school and tend to our health may no longer be there.
Even more disturbing, those 'who do enter the medical profession are
being encouraged by their parents and mentors to follow the safest
path and pursue specialties that aren't weighed down'by a flood of
lawsuits.
Obstetrics, neurosurgery and emergency medicine are some of the
areas hardest hit, simply because patients seeing these doctors most
frequently have bad outcomes due to the severity or complexity of
their conditions. In fact, 63 percent of doctors surveyed said they
would not encourage their children to become OB,'GYNs. On the
other hand, low-risk specialties like dermatology have seen an influx
of practitioners.
.The culture of litigation that is embraced in the U.S. has made a
profession that was once every, family's dream for their children an
inidesirable pursuit," says Dr. Richard Anderson, chairman and CEO
of The Doctors Company. "If people want to continue to have access
to the medical care they've come to expect, limitations are going to
have to be placed on lawsuit awards. Without such limitations, the
future of medicine, for doctors and patients, looks bleak,"
-.However, there is hope. Caps on jury awards for pain and suffering
can provide long-term relief for doctors while ensuring injured
patients are appropriately compensated. In Texas, for example, signs
of life have returned to the profession in the few months since voters
passed a constitutional amendment allowing the implementation of a
cap on pain-and-suffering awards. As a result, almost every
-4malpractice insurer in the state has announced a rate decrease, and
obstetrics practices that had closed are reopening.
-Reforms, such as caps on non-econoic damages, can help to
bring relief to physicians. These caps limit intangibles, such as pain
and suffering, but not economic losses, such as medical care or lost
wages. They will also encourage the development of a new
generation of doctors and ensure that the most critical types of care
are available in the future.

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


Dear Classified Guys,
With the price of gas so high, I decid-
ed to search the classified and look
for an economy car to drive back and
forth to work instead of my SUV. I
was hoping to find one of those new
hybrid cars, but I guess they are in
high demand. However I did find a
guy who was selling a diesel car that
ran on leftover oil from the deep fat
fryers at local restaurants. At first I
thought it was a joke, but when I
called I realized he was serious. I
was stunned and didn't know
what to say. How do these -
cars work and why don't -
more people have them? \/
Help me out here guys. I'm
feeling real naive right now.

Cash: You're not alone. Many people
have never heard of running a car on
vegetable oil. However, much like some
people, your car can also become vege-
tarian.
Carry: These vegetable oil systems
have been around for years, but have
gained popularity as gas prices soar
higher. Basically, a conversion kit is
used to change the fuel system of a
diesel engine to let it run, on vegetable
oil as well as diesel fuel.
Cash: The conversion kit can cost


Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


w
I. ii


between $500 and'S800 and can be
added to almost any diesel engine vehi-
cle including passenger cars and trucks.
This system adds a second fuel tank to
the vehicle that is used to store vegetable
oil. You start the car as usual, but once
the engine is warmed up, you can flip a
switch on the dashboard that allows the
vegetable oil to be delivered in place of
the diesel fuel.
Carry: As you may imagine, the sys-
tem can have a cost savings on gasoline,
but does require the need to find alterna-
tive fuel sources. It's not like there are
many fuel stations serving vegetable oil.


Cash: Most people make a. deal with
local restaurants to collect the vegetable
oil used in deep fat fryers. Since the
restaurant typically pays to dispose of
the old oil, they are more than willing to
give it away.
Carry: Aside from cleaning a fuel fil-
ter, there is very little additional mainte-
nance on the car. Although since you
are buying vegetable oil, you may
notice the smell of fried food.
Cash: But since you're producing
lower emissions and saving on gasoline
prices, you.may not mind driving a car
that smells like french fries.


Going The Distance
With today's gas prices, many people
are focusing on a car's fuel economy.
The vegetable oil system receives about
the same mileage/gallon as standard
diesel fuel, and diesel engines are typi-
cally 40% more efficient than their
gasoline counterparts. In addition, veg-
etable oil is known to reduce vehicle
emissions and act as a better lubricant
than diesel oil. With a two-tank fuel
system, converted cars can travel
extended distances before needing to
refuel.
High Class Ride
While many people may think con-
verting a vehicle to run on vegetable oil
is reserved for older model cars, noth-
ing could be further from the truth.
Today the conversion kits can be used
on all types of diesel engine cars
including Mercedes Benz, Chevy, Ford,
Volkswagen and more. In fact, there
are some businesses that have convert-
ed their entire fleet qf delivery trucks to
use a vegetable oil system to save thou-
sands of dollars every year in fuel.

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


Moo-Shoo
My neighbor is very unique. On
any given Saturday, you can find him
in his garage tinkering or inventing
something for around the house. His
recent project was converting an old
diesel pickup truck to run on veg-
etable oil.
I stopped by one day to see how he
was doing on the project. Proud of
his new vehicle, he hopped in the
front seat and started it up so I could
see it in action. A few minutes later I
noticed the smell of Chine'se food.
"I get the vegetable oil from the
Chtnese restaurant in town" he told
me;
."Are there an) side effects?" I
asked.
He laughed and replied.
"Occasionjll\. hlien it backfires it
spits out egg rolls."

Prepare The Fireplace Now


A cozy time by the fire can be easier to achieve than many
homeowners realize.


(NAPSA)-Homeowners
should act now to bring
warmth and ambience
when cold weather
arrives. Whether it's
maintaining an existing
fireplace or freestanding
stove, enhancing its
appearance, or shopping
for something new, a
jump on the "burn"


season usually means a
better deal, as well as
faster service.
For those with existing
hearth products, the time
to start refurbishing and
cleaning is now.
According to a survey by
the Hearth, Patio &
Barbecue' Association
(HPBA), 10 percent of


fireplace and stove
owners plan changes
involving new
accessories, mantels or
surrounds.
Maintenance should be
completed well before the
first cold snap. Hire a
professional to inspect
the chimney and clean it
if necessary. Log on to

I WE FE


the Chimney Safety
Institute of America web
site at www.csia.org to
find a certified chimney
sweep in your area, or
inquire about one at your
local hearth retailer.
If the chimney doesn't
have a cap, install one to
prevent debris or animals
,from falling inside and
creating a blockage. Keep
the area around the stove
or fireplace free from
furniture and flammable
materials. For added
safety, have both a smoke
detector and a carbon
monoxide detector
installed.
For a gas fireplace,
clean the logs and adjust
the "embers" for
maximum effect. Clean
the fan, air passages and
glass screens. Be sure
any vents are
unobstructed. Consider
contacting a specialty
retailer who is trained in
servicing gas fireplaces to
get a comprehensive
maintenance plan.
If a new hearth product
is on your "to do" list; the
sooner the better. The
HPBA survey indicates
that more than three
million new. fireplaces
and freestanding stoves
were installed in 2004-a
number that has more
than tripled during the
past 10 years. Certified
hearth installers will
become increasingly busy
as the cold weather gets
closer.
Whether adding a
fireplace to a living room,
the master bedroom, or
another room in the
-L i. i 4
home, there are a number
of options from which to
choose.
After selecting the
location, choose your
fuel-wood, gas, electric,
coal or pellet. Feel free to
"mix and match" as well-
a wood-burning fireplace
might be preferred in the
living room, but perhaps
a gas or electric fireplace
in the bedroom would be
more convenient.
After deciding which
type of fuel to burn,
choose a style that
complements your home.
Leaf through magazines,
visit specialty hearth
retailers and home
improvement stores, and
talk to friends about their
experiences. Some
specialty retailers will
make house calls to help
homeowners choose the
right product for their
space and lifestyle. There
is a wide variety, of
designs, styles and,sizes
of fireplaces, so it will be
easy to find the perfect
one.
Regardless of where
you buy your hearth
product, hire a National
Fireplace Institute(r)
(NFI) Certified Specialist
to install it. An NFI
Certified installer has
passed a rigorous exam
covering important safety
codes, venting, and.
installation guidelines. To
find a specialty retailer
with NFI Certified staff,
visit www.nficertified.org


or visit www.hpba.org to
find a retailer with.
certified installers.
For more information
about the wide variety of
hearth products, as well
as maintenance and
safety tips, visit
www.hpba.org.
