Democrat Reporter
In a recent School Board
meeting teacher Stephanie
Gray and teacher's union
president and teacher Sheryl
Daniels appealed to the
Board for teachers to get a
better pay raise this fiscal
year. Gray and Daniels re-
minded the Board that state
and national mandates con-
stantly increase, resulting in
more demands placed on
teachers and that teachers


er raises


should be compensated for
extra requirements.
Board Chairman Jerry Tay-
lor told teachers they were
appreciated and the Board
appeals to the state on their
behalf.
In an interview Daniels
said teachers have been of-
fered a 3 percent raise, which
is only half of a percent in-
crease from the 2.5 percent
offered last year.
"The Board promised they

Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
Described by a friend as a man "larger than life"' and a
"master of politics" who truly cared about people, former
state representative and senator Sherrill N. "Pete" Skinner
was laid to rest Nov. 7 in Lake City.
Skinner, 62, entered.the hospital Oct. 4 and died Nov. 3 in
the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Lake City after a short
battle with cancer.
A native of Suwannee County who was raised in McAlpin
on a farm, graduated from Suwannee High School, received
a political science degree from University of Florida and a
master's degree in history from Valdosta State University,
Skinner had lived in Lake City for many years before his

Second graders attend court


Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter
A recent walking field trip for local 7-year-
olds turned into a courtroom experience.
Lawanna Zimmermann's second-grade class
took a walking field trip through town visiting
various places, including the Suwannee County
Jail, courthouse and,post office Nov 4. While at
the courthouse the class pre-
sented the Live Oak Commu-
nity Organization (LOCO) a
check for $696.97 from a
fund-raiser Suwannee Prima-
ry School held tfor the organi-
zation.
Mayor Sonny Nobles and
oihei cominuliii'' ineiImbei~
origuiall. foinned LOCO to
donate clothing, food and
supplies to hurricane evac-
uees staying in the area. The
organization, housed at the
Live Oak Fire Department,
has since expanded to assist
any person facing crisis.
Zimmermann's class got to
tour the courthouse talk with
the judge and sit in on a pre-
trial hearing. The class wait-'
ed in a side courtroom down-
stairs While waiting for the "Judge" Jalor


judge to .arrive. Judge David Fina welcomed
the class: handed out candy and briefed stu-
dents on courtroom conduct.
Fina also gave the students a mini lesson
about what goes on in court and answered sev-
eral interesting questions from his young audi-
ence. Among the questions asked were: how
did you get all the people in jail? He explained

police arrest people who, do
bad things resulting in a court
trial. Another question was a
big one for a second grader:
what's the difference between
a civil trial and a criminal trial?
Fina explained a civil trial is
the result of someone suing for
money and a criminal trial is a
result of someone who has
committed a crime. Another
interesting question was: why'
are .there so many cameras in
this building? He explained
they were for safety purposes
and elaborated on the need for
courthouse safety.
Fina led students up his "se-
cret pathway" to the courtroom
where children sat through a
pre-trial hearing. After the
hearing the class made their
way back to the side room.
where students were allowed.
to try on Fina's judge's robe

the Vietnam War and served in
the Peace Corps in India. He
received the National Service
Award for his work in India
where he worked with the peo-
ple there to teach them the use
of salt tolerant varieties of rice
and wheat. Skinner also served
as a Foreign Service Officer
for the US government in the

Skinner, who soon became
familiar to voters by the khaki
pants and shirts he wore con-
stantly, was elected to the
House of Representatives and.
served Suwannee County and
surrounding areas, including
parts of Alachua, from 1974-

The trip was topped off with
a visit to Pizza Hut -- an all-
time favorite for kids.
Zimmermann said the field
trip gave students a first-hand
experience of the sentencing
process. 'At the jail students
saw an arrested person in a
holding room and later saw
him in the courthouse. While
entering the courthouse stu-

had become one of the most

while he served in the Senate,
was a brilliant man whose
ideas were always'worthy of

said Skinner ran a 30,000-acre
sugar plantation in the Do-,
minican Republic. Through it,
all, Hatch said, Skinner was al-.
ways thinking of other people
and ways he could help others.
."Pete was quite a character."
Hatch remembered Nlonday
just prior to attending, Skin-
ner's funeral. "You could go to
Tallahassee today and just
about everybody you would
meet would either have a Pete
Skinner story or have heard
one," Hatch remembered. "He
was just larger than life. lIfyou
had a problem, (and you knew
Skinner) you had a friend.".
Hatch said up until a few days
before he died, Skinner contin-
ued to help others, including
helping to get a family out of a
third world country and return-
ing them to America.
Hatch said once the two
friends were sent by the US
government to Haiti on a mis-
sion to gather soil samples and

"Pete asked me what did I

%we didn't have to worry' about

there would look after us be-
cause he was a senator." Forty-
five minutes later, hopelessly

they had made the decision to

"He was dedicated to the

Hatch said. "He was the only

COMMENTARY


Windfall profits


In the wake of high gasoline
prices.and high oil company prof-
its, House Speaker Dennis Hastert -
demands that oil companies ex-
plain why they are making so
much money, and what they plan to
do to bring down the cost of gaso- .,
line. Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., '
has introduced a 50 percent wind- 'l ,*
fall profit tax on every barrel of' '' ,2
oil selling for more than $40. Let's BY WALTE
talk about profits.
First, there's normal .profit,
which is defined as the minimum amount necessary to
keep entrepreneurial resources in their current usage in the
long run. Normal profits reflect the' opportunity cost of us-
ing funds to finance an operation, and they must be equal
to, or' greater than, the returns available elsewhere in the
economy. Normal profits are indeed a cost of business -
the payment to equity owners. .
Windfall or supernormal profits are any profits in excess
of normal profit and are above and beyond that necessary
to keep entrepreneurial resources in their current usage.
However, windfall profits are a vital component to a
smoothly operating economy, Windfall profits serve as a'
signal that there are unmet human wants. Let's look at it
with a simple example.
Suppose there's a disaster wiping out food resources in
Harrisburg, Pa., and I live in Philadelphia. Prior to the dis-
aster, bread prices in both cities were $2 a loaf. I buy a
truckload of bread, cart it to Harrisburg and sell it for $20
a loaf, earning huge windfall profits. When the word gets
out that there are profits to be made, what do you think
happens? If you said other people will start carting bread
to Harrisburg, bakers will start working overtime to pro-
duce more bread, people who formerly used their oven to
.bake cakes and pies will switch to baking bread, there'll
be bread conservation in Philadelphia and elsewhere and
eventually bread prices will start to fall in Harrisburg and
windfall profits would vanish, go to the head of the class.
S\\hile some might find people earning windfall profits ob-
jectionable, the result of their actions, getting more bread
to Harrisburg, is precisely what's desired.


What if politicians said, "People
A are profiting from the misery of
m ORI fry others, and we're going to impose
N 1 a bread windfall profits tax"? Say
VMIW they legislated a 100 percent tax,
taking all of the $18 of windfall
profits. Would you expect to see
people making all those efforts to
get bread to Harrisburg? Suppose
V05 Creators Syndicate there were huge startup costs for
R WILLIAMS companies to expand their 'opera-
tion or onerous regulations for
people to get into the bread busi-
ness, would that be good news 'or bad news for people in
Harrisburg?
What prevents a robust supply response to changes in
scarcity conditions in the gasoline market? U.S. oil refin-
ing capacity is now less than it was in 19'80, and since that
time there's been a 25 percent increase in demand. Be-
cause of costly, environmental regulations, it's been 30
years since a new refinery has been built. According to the
American Petroleum Institute, over the last 10 years, it has
cost the oil industry $47 billion to comply with costly and
sometimes useless environmental controls. There are re-
strictions on exploiting the huge oil reserves in Alaska, the
Gulf and the Atlantic and Pacific coasts.
Speaker Hastert said, ''These are extraordinary times
that call for extraordinary measures. We expect oil compa-
nies to do their part to help ease the pain American fami-
lies are feeling from high energy prices." Instead of
mouthing platitudes and beating up on oil executives,
Speaker Hastert should lead the effort to reduce restric-
tions on drilling and refinery construction. Sen. Dorgan
should review our 1970s experience with an oil windfall
profits tax that reduced American production and in-
creased our dependence on foreign sources.

Frozen fruits and vegetables


By: Meredith Taylor,
Suwannee County Extension
Service
Choosing, storing, peeling,
chopping, cooking sometimes
it can seem like a lot of work to
get your five-a-day. Make it easy
on yourself and try some frozen
fruits and vegetables. Besides be-
ing quick, they are flavorful and
nutritious. They're inexpensive,
too usually cheaper then fresh
produce and there's no. waste.
You can eat everything you pay
for! So stock up your freezer and
your .five-a-day will be moments
away.
Nutrition
There's no question that a diet
with plenty of fruits and vegeta-
bles is what we should be striving
for. "But do frozen foods count?
You bet! As amazing as it sounds,
frozen fruits and vegetables are
often more nutritious than fresh.
Fruits and vegetables destined for
freezer packages are picked at


their peak and frozen within
hours of being harvested. Most
nutrients and phytochemicals
hold up very well during freez-
ing, so that foods that have been
frozen are almost as nutritious
several months later as they were
the moment they were picked.
To get the maximum nutrition
from frozen fruits and vegeta-
bles, store them at OEF or lower
(check the temperature with a re-
frigerator/freezer thermometer),
use them within eight months,
and cook them quickly with min-
imal water.
Buying frozen foods
Look for clean packages with
no frost. Frost is an indication
that the package was. not kept
frozen at all times, which means
poorer quality and a chance of
spoilage. Take your purchases
home quickly and immediately
put them in the freezer.
Select frozen fruits and vegeta-
bles that have few or no added in-
gredients. Avoid fruits that are


packed in heavy sugar syrup and
vegetables with thick cream
sauces.
Thawing
Most frozen vegetables don't
need to be thawed before cook-
ing just follow the directions
on the package.
Fun with frozen fruit
Use your blender (a handheld
one works, too) to make a variety
of fruit shakes and smoothies.
Blend juice, yogurt, milk or
soymilk with frozen fruit to get a
refreshing frosty drink.
Stir frozen berries into a bowl
of hot oatmeal. The oatmeal
thaws the berries and the berries
sweeten and cool the oatmeal.
Yum!
Nibble on small pieces of
frozen fruit for a great snack.
(Don't give young children fruit
that is till frozen because they
might choke on it.)
Blend frozen fruit into yogurt
or vinaigrette for a tasty salad
dressing,.


Fold frozen berries into pan-
cake and muffin batters right be-
fore cooking.
Use frozen berries as minia-
ture ice cubes in sparkling water
or cold tea.
Versatile veggies
'* Substitute. frozen vegetables
for fresh or canned in soups,
stews and casseroles.
Cool a child's bowl of soup
by stirring in frozen veggies.
Add a 10-ounce package of
frozen winter squash to your next
pot of chili. It will thicken the
chili and give it a nutritious
boost. ;
Add frozen vegetables to the
pasta pot just before the pasta is
completely cooked. Drain them
together and add a sauce of your
choosing.

Hallow een in the outback
"as full of the "Spirits of
Fun" as the Wellborn Com-
munity Association (WCA).
sponsored a trick or treat
party for all the neighbor-
hood kids. The WCA offered
treats of free hot dogs. soft
drinks and bags of candy to.
those brave enough to dare
travel on a. night when
ghosts, goblins and ghouls
haunted our rural, country
village of Wellborn. Totally,
undaunted at the chance of
spooky encounters, the likes
of Spiderman, Cat Woman,
Superman,: Care Bears and a
possible future American
Idol. mingled with the likes
of 'Jason, Freddy and
Screamer. Oh my! I am
guessing that all the free
'treats were well worth tak-
ing the chance of a close en-
counter of a third kind.
Thanks goes to Beanie
Brooks for sharing pictures
of the occasion, Jack Gay-
lord for cooking the hot
dogs, WCA President Wayne
Brooks, Carol Johnson and
Linda Gaylord for their
helping hands. And thanks
certainly goes to the WCA
for 15 years of community
service. The WCA's annual
Thanksgiving dinner will be
held on Saturday, Nov. 19.

more details on this bounti-
ful feast.

Austin's mother, Keri
Shaver, holds a masters de-

school. Keri is a single par-
ent who, for the most part, 'is
raising Austin alone, al-
though she has, through the
years, had much 'help from
her mother, Austin's grand-
mother, Caroline Sha'er. I
talked with Austin at the
WCA Halloween party, and
am amazed at this young
boy's attitude and spirit.
I' e watchedd Austin grow up
in Wellborn. so it seems im-
possible how he has matured
in mind and sprouted in
height. He is on the A-B
honor roll, well-mannered,
respectful and. are you
ready for this, he has real a
job. Austin must be the
youngest person ever to
work for the Suwannee
County Parks Department
(SCPD). His duties are to
keep Wellborn Community

Austin Shauer
Park (WCP) on 4th Avenue,
clean. Austin gathers the
trash left by park visitors
and then deposits it in our
recycling center on CR 137.
For a job well done, he re-
ceives a monthly paycheck
from SCPD Director Greg
Scott. I believe a good job is
being done for all ... Keri,'
for,instilling in her young,
son the responsibilities of
earning and managing one's
.money ... Scott, for grasp-

positive influence in the life
of the youngest of us who
needs to feel accomplish-

tainly not least, Austin, who
shows a maturity and a

yond his youthful years.

AARP helps you sort out the facts about how new Medicare

Prescription Drug coverage can help you


AARP offers free
publication to help
consumers
The most important task for
Medicare beneficiaries this fall is
the selection of a Medicare D
provider. Beginning in January
2006, Medicare Part D will begin
to pay part of the cost ofprescrip-
tion drugs helping to provide af-
fordable and sustainable access to
medications for Medicare benefi-
ciaries. The new benefit is volun-
tary; however, Medicare benefi-
ciaries must enroll in order to par-
ticipate in one of the private plans
approved by Medicare.


Farmers and ranchers can
now re-enroll or extend their
Conservation Reser\e Pro-
gram (CRP) contracts expir-
ing,in 2007 through 2010,
announced Kevin Kelley.
State Executive Director for
USDA's Farm Sern ice
Agency (FSA). This effort
fulfills the commitment
President Bush made last
year to underscore the Ad-
ministration's commitment
to improving the environ-
ment and protecting the na-
tion's wildlife habitat, water
and natural resources. ,
S"We're offering farmers
and ranchers re-enrrollments
and contract extensions so
they can take full advantage
of the environmental bene-
fits of this program." said
Kelley. "Re-enrolling and
extending these contracts is
part of the President's plan
to fully use the nearly 40
million acres of CRP to im-
prove water quality as well
as wildlife habitat."
In order to determine who
might be able to re-enroll or
extend their CRP contract.
USDA's Farm Service
Agency (FSA) will use the
Environmental Benefits In-
S"--dex (EB) that was in place
when the contracts were -first
written. The EBI is a mea-
suring system that assigns
point scores to the contracts
and then nationally ranks all
CRP land enrollment offers.
Several environmental out-
comes factor into EBI point
scores such as improving
wildlife habitat, water quali-
ty, and air quality and reduc-
ing soil erosion.
The EBI- scores are based
upon a 100 percentile that is
divided into 'five ranking
tiers. In the first tier. CRP
producers ranking in the top
20 percent of the EBI can re-
enroll their land in new con-
tracts and farmers and
ranchers with wetlands in
this ranking can receive con-
tract terms of 10- to 15-
years.
CRP producers ranking
-within the. second tier, be- .
tween the 61-80 percent, can
extend their contracts for
five 'years. Farmers and
ranchers ranking within the
third tier. 41-60.percent, can
extend their CRP contracts
by four years..Those ranking
in the fourth tier. between
21-40 percent, can receive 3-
year extensions. And those
contracts ranking in the fifth
tier of the 20 percent of CRP
producers can extend their
contracts by two years.
As a result of, this land
conservation program, many
widespread environmental
benefits have evolved. For
example:
Reductions in soil ero-
sion are reaching more than
450 million tons per year.
thereby increasing air quali-
ty due to less airborne conta-
mination.
,*-" Sedi'ment and nutrient
'~"' inoff into rivers and
streams is improving.
The U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service estimates


Itis important for consumers to
have the tools and the right infor-
mation to make informed deci-
sions. To help the public navigate
the enrollment process, AARP is
providing a free guide, What You
Need to Know About the New
Medicare Prescription Drug Cov-
erage. The publication will help
educate consumers about the
Medicare drug program and the
decisions they will need to make.'
"One of the 'most important
roles AARP will play is providing
education to consumers about the
Medicare prescription drug pro-
granm. The more informed you are,
the wiser your decision," said


that CRP is increasing duck
populations by more .than
two million per year. Ring-
necked pheasant populations
in Minnesota, North Dakota.
South Dakota and Ohio are
rising by 200 percent.
CRP is increasing
grasshopper sparrow. lark
bunting and eastern mead-
owlark populations
The long-absent prairie
chickens in Texas are reap-
pearing.
CRP is helping Colom-
bian sharp-tailed grouse re-
cover.
New bird habitats in the
Northern Great Plains are
emerging.
Western state popula-
tions of big game elk. mule
deer, white-tailed deer and
pronghorn antelope are in-
creasing.
In spring 2006, FSA will
write to CRP producers with
contracts expiring Sept. 30,
2007. to discuss whether
those contracts are eligible
for re-enrollment.or exten-
ston. Farmers and ranchers
will confirm their contract
interests at that point and a
compliance check will be


Florida AARP State President,
Judy Thames. "Our role is to make
sure our members have accurate,
unbiased information to help them
make wise choices about this new
benefit"
Currently, 16 million Medicare
beneficiaries do not have any pre-
scription drug coverage. Yet
roughly 50 percent of older Amer-
icans take four or more prescrip-
tiondrugs per day. AARP believes
the Medicare prescription drug
program is an important step to
.provide better access to affordable
prescription drugs for older Amer-
icans and those with disabilities.
Individuals with lower incomes,


necessary.'
Fifteen-year contracts ex-
piring Sept. 30. 2007. are
not eligible for re-enroll-
ment or extension. During
the nest several months FSA
- will update the CRP rental
rates to better reflect local
market rates for cropland on
new contract re-enrollments
and will review cropland en-
rollmtent limits on a county-
by-county basis.
CRP is a voluntary pro-
gram for agricultural pro-
ducers, which help them
protect environmentally sen-
sitive land. Producers en-
rolling in CRP plant long-
term, resource conservation
covers with USDA provid-
ing rental payments and
cost-share assistance.

A geat and unique man has

state Legislator Pete Skinner died
last week after a month-long bat-

don't drink of people like Pete
Skinner having cancer, let alone
brain cancer, but it does happen. I

a state senator. I went to %work for
the newspaper in 1978 and our
paths crossed on many occasions
as I covered e\ ents in the area. He

Need A Road!
SKBJ.&o ad! .


For the last twenty years the residents of 173rd Place (the old
Biggs Road) have been trying to get a road. It has been a long,
trying and frequently frustrating journey. However, they have
finally come together as a community to achieve their goal.
On November 1st of this year the county commissioners agreed to
adopt this road, recognizing that this is truly an issue of safety for
the residents and not just a case of bumps in the road. However, to
comply with the requirements involved, the residents must pay for
survey and abstract title costs. This is a community that consists of
retired, disabled and families with children. The monies needed are
not readily available here.
Not ready to give up the fight, this community has come together
to organize fund-raisers to get the money they need. On November
10, 11 and 12 they are holding a 12-family yard sale at Jesse
Caruthers house 17325 on 76th Street. Just follow the signs, right
hand side of Mitchell Road. All monies raised will go to the Biggs
Road Fund.
They are also raffling off tickets for 50 gallons of gasoline
(generously donated by Penn Oil). Tickets are available from any
resident on J173rd Place and also available from Penn Oil, the
drawing of which will be held 11/30/2005. Also available are raffle
tickets for a quilt (generously donated by Larie Manning).
Numerous items, appliances, refrigerators, stoves, etc. Please come
out and -help support their efforts. Sincerely, the- 19 family of
173rd Place.Tor more information, please call 364-5007. .,,

how much the state appropri-'
ates for the District each year.
"The Board receives funds
based on the number of stu-
dents in the system," Daniels

said. "With the extra money
this could bring a raise of at
least 2 percent more than
what was offered."
Daniels said at the first ne-
gotiation meeting for this
year, after teachers were of-
fered an increase of 1.5 per-
cent she went back to the
school and worked,
until 9 p.m. in her
classroom.
"I left people, '..
there at 9 o'clock," i-l
she said. "Many dc
teachers work well
into the night; can
many of us work wh
weekends." ;'
Daniels said she be
understands raises raiS
for teachers can't the
be a priority all of
the time, but they
haye not been pri-
ority in a 'long time.
"The budget
money the Board is
handed, can be used for em-
ployees if they want to make
them first choice," she said.
"We just want fair compensa-
tion for what %\e do."
School Superintendent
Walter Boatright said he
doesn't recall the Board mak-
ing any promise to teachers'
for a better raise this year.
"This would not be a wise
move, because we don't know
from one year to the next the


amount of funds generated
from the state," he said, ex-
plaining the state gives the
District an amount for operat-
ing costs from which teacher's
raises are negotiated.
School Board Personnel
Director Dr. Bill Brothers
said while the Board receives
a, certain amount for raises
for instructional staff, some
of those funds will go toward
other things. Implementing

Boatright said despite the
FTE count being up 150 stu-
dents, many factors deter-
mine whether the District ac-
tually receives the full funds
for student counts, and even
if the District does receive
the full amount it will be Feb-
ruary until the money is re-
ceived.
Brothers said negotiations
are yet to take place to decide
whether Board mem-
bers will get a pay
raise this year.
y Boatright said he
has declined receiving
a pay raise until the
issue is settled with
Dr the teacher's raise ne-

"Teachers are his-

Brothers said.
"There's no way we

however I believe a 3

fair in light of all the

The teacher's union has de-
clared an Impasse, which
means they will not agree

to come in and handle the is-
sue.

Secrets to success as a student


Part 2
By Marie Dooley
Awareness of eventual
place in society
Each person is of great
value to the whole organ-
ism, Planet Earth. The stu-
dent must understand that
he/she will take his/her
place in society, for good or
evil. That place may seem
humble, but the person fill-
ing that niche can elevate it
to great heights. Abraham
Lincoln's mother was "just
a mom" who held a lowly
place on the social ladder.
It was how she did her job
as a mother that made all
the difference. The world
cannot survive without all
the hard workers taking
more pride in their work
than they do in the size of
their paycheck.
Study skills
The first thing every'
child needs to learn to do is
read for meaning. This can
be reinforced at home and
should be a long-term goal.
A student must be able to
find the main idea of any-
thing to be read, retain that
idea, and identify important
supports for that idea.
The, parents of a student
should have some aware-
'ness as to how he/she learns
best. The students can be
made aware of this and en-
couraged to "play to their
strengths." Some people are
auditory learners, some vi-
sual learners and .some
kinesthetic "hands on"
learners. Knowing your
learning style ,helps you to
select study tools. If a stu-
dent needs to "hear a story.
as well as read it to him-


self/herself, then that can
be planned.
Study styles differ too.
Many people need perfect
silence when they are con-
centrating. Many like music
to study by. Most people
take short breaks after 20 or
so minutes and that keeps
them fresh as they continue
to study or work on a pro-
ject. Some young ones like
to loll all over a floor with
their tools and materials
scattered around them,
some opt for a quiet corner
with a desk and a great deal
of structure.
One important study skill
is self-discipline. If parents
teach this skill and encour-
age it from an early age,
and schools reinforce it,
they do not have the prob-
lems with homework and
assignments that too often
disturb the peace of house-
holds with children. Moms
and dads should NOT be
diving into a six-week pro-
ject for little Jimmy the
night before it is due. The
first time a parent caves to
this pressure, the die. is
cast. Let your child take the
weight for the mistake of
procrastinating. If. it is a
lesson that needs learning,
it needs learning in child-
hood before the habit solid-.
ifies.
Know where to go
for help
The teacher is a students
first stop if he/she has trou-
ble with an assignment. If
the teacher, for whatever
reason, is not an option, a
fellow student with a good
grasp of the requirements is


the next possibility. Anoth-
er good source of informa-
tion is the Internet. Learn-
ing to "Goggle" a topic is
fun and informative. The' li-
brary is another resource.
If the problem is of a more
general nature, about, acad-
emic planning or general
trouble 'with the curriculum,
the Guidance, Counselor is a
student's first line of de-
fense. Sometimes parents
are the best allies in getting
help for these problems.
Freshen the mind
and body
Life is to live, and no-
body knows this better than
a child. Unstructured play
and recreation freshen and


revive the body and mind.
Parents and educators
should plan in blocks of
time when the students can
let their hair down a bit. Or-
ganized sports are valuable
to many, but even those stu-
dents like time to recreate
occasionally in a more ran-
dom way. (It is not encour-
aging laziness. People
come back from a bit of
personal time ready to
work, with body and mind
refreshed.)
Knowing the value of
an education.
An education is not just
the ticket to a great job,
though this is a valuable
goal. The human personal-


ity can be uplifted to its
natural heights only with
knowledge. The mysteries
of the universe can be un-
derstood through education
the perfection of math, phi-
losophy and civilization.
We are ennobled when, we
can understand the stunning
clarity of thought of an Ein-
stein, a Shakespeareor a
Whitman. Our inner life is
richer and we like our own.
company, better when the
big thoughts of these sub-
lime thinkers become a part
of who we are.
Students should be taught
early that the greatness of
America lies in honoring all
.of its inhabitants with an


education. They need to
know that legions of chil-
dren around the globe
would gladly give up food,
shelter and clothing for the
chance to attend school.
American parents pay. for
this great opportunity with
hard-earned taxes, and the
United States government
never ceases to plan how to
make this privilege even
sweeter. Students can honor
this gift best by making
good use of it and becom-
ing the informed, enlight-
ened citizens of the great
country that nurtures them.

2849 CHEETAH seven
months old, black and white,
female. This is. one CHEE-
TAH that won't scare you.
On the contrary, she will give
you a million kisses and
show .off from daylight to
dark to win your approval
and hopefully, your love.
2621 KIRA one year
old, tri-color, female. As en-
thusiastic and full of fun as a
new clown. MISS KIRA will
charm and delight you. It will
be a happy day when some
lucky person says, "I'm go-.
ing to choose this lovely
girl."
2827 JENNIFER 11
weeks old,, dark brown, fe-,
male. There is no0 such thing
as an unlovable puppy, but
this one goes way beyond
just being cute and sweet.
She is a big-time winner in
all departments and you'll
recognize it the minute your
eyes meet hers.
2811 COPPER six and a
half months old, brown and
black, male. A big-beautiful
specimen of pure DOG, he is
full of unabashed .affection
for human-kind and is eager
to have a home of his own.
2820 PETE one and a
half years old, white and
black, Jack Russell mix,
male. Could ha e been called
Frisky or Hip-hop or maybe


Tornado. He is all for play
and petting; good food and a
warm bed ... will settle for all
that plus love and a Frisbee.
CATS:
,3856 LACEY five and a
half weeks old, grey and
white, female. "Oh, isn't that
the sweetest thing you ever
saw?" is the usual reaction to
LACEY. And why not? ... she
IS the sweetest thing your
ever saw. Think I'm funning
you? Come see for yourself.
2854 TOBY four weeks
old, black, male. Just in time
for Halloween, your very
own Black Cat. A little small
for a witch's companion, but
he grows a little every day ...
in sweetness, in friendliness,
in lovability. You'll lose your
heart.
2822 ERNIE three
months old, orange, male.
This is one precious young
man and I suspect he thinks
so too ... so you see he's also
very smart as well. There is
just so much to tell about
how lovable he is that I think
I need more space to even'be-
gin. For now, please take my,
word ... he's wonderful.
2741- SIERRA six
months old, black with win-
ter white feet, .female. 'Lady
of the. Manor, Queen of the
Hill: she rules over all- our.
hearts with a friendly twitch


of the tail and a sly look of
love in her eyes. A loving
home will be hers if there is
any justice in the world.
2730 LUCAS one year
old, tabby, male. An unflag-
ging belief that the world is
just the most interesting and
delightful place that' one
could ever find to live in is
the hallmark of this remark-
able sweet cat. He is content
with us, but I suspect in his
heart.of hearts a home of his
own would be just right.

Use ICE for emergencies.."


Cell phone users are be-

acronym ICE, an abbrevi-
ation for "in case of emer-
gency,' before the names
of people they want to be
contacted on their behalf
in an emergency. The idea
i..deQpeloed,. by a
Britishparamedic, 'nd the
idea is spreading across
the nation.


This simple step could
help emergency workers
ensure you get proper
medical care and at the
same time quickly connect
you with your family in
an' emergency.
An ICE entry could be
"ICE .- Ann," or "ICE -'
"Morm," ICE 1, ICE 2 etc.

FROM THE PAGES OF THE TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1981 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT

SSTwo years in federal prison


"Poss" Lee sentenced


Grover Lamar "Poss" Lee of
Live Oak was sentenced last week
to two years in federal prison for
his involvement in a plan to sell
marijuana.
Lee was convicted in August by,
a federal grand jury in Jackson-
ville of conspiracy to distribute
about 1,600 pounds of marijuana.
Lee, then an investigator with
the Third Circuit Public
Defender's Office was arrested in


1977 following an investigation
by the Suwannee County Sheriff's
Department and other law en-
forcement agencies. Lee was first
convicted that same year, along
with former Circuit Court Judge
Sam Smith of Lake City.
Lee, 43, appealed that convic-
tion and was subsequently tried
two more times.
Lee was found guilty of acting
as a go-between in a scheme to


move confiscated marijuana from
the Suwannee County Jail into
the hands of dealers.
U.S. District Judge John Reed
sentenced Lee to two years in
prison for conspiracy. He was
also given a suspended two-year
sentence and two years probation
for using a telephone to further
the plan.
The prison sentence begins Oct.
23.


Gaylord improving


Melvin Gaylord, the 17 year old
Wellborn youth who sustained a
7,200 volt shock several weeks
ago, is reportedly doing well in
the burn unit of Shands Teaching
Hospital'in Gainesville and will
soon undergo more skin grafts
MelbA Law, a spokesman for.
the Gaylord family, said he will
receive skin grafts to his right

i,4 in poud condition and .sp;rit. -
Gavlord is clear of internal in-
juries, Mrs Law said. She added
his heart, lungs, and kidneys are
doing well.


Gaylord received the 7,200 volt
shock when a metal pole he was
using to loosen hardened chicken
feed from atop a metal bin touch-
ed a power line.
He was rushed to Suwannee
County Ho-piial and from there
transported to Alachua General
Hospital in Gainesville by
helicopter. He was later taken to

Something was nipping at.
Monica Smith's heels Sunday
evening, and it wasn't Jack Frost.
After surviving a car accident
Friday night, Miss Smith was
cornered by a killer guard dog,
Saturday at Mott Buick until the
Suwannee County Sheriff's
Department and Live Oak Fire,
Department could come to her
rescue.
Miss Smith, 16, of Route 4, Box
145, climbed over a barbed wire
fence at the car. dealership, while
her mother watched, to examine,
her 1980 Toyota which she had
damaged-in the accident. .
Apprently un wn .to Miss.,
St m a tkndhlermother a specially
trained Doberman pinscher was


behind the fence to guard against
such intrusions.
"It's a trained killer," Sheriff's
Deputy Bob Robinson said.
"When those dogs get hold of so-
meone, they don't let go. If that
dog had gotten hold of her, she
would be in bad shape or dead."
When the dog started coming
toward her, Miss Smith leaped on
top of a car and stayed there until
help could arrive.
Robinson said he was patrolling
the area when he saw Mrs. Smith
on top of her own truck outside
the fenced-in lot. While she
wanted to throw a pipe to distract
the dog so Miss .Smith could,
make a run for itI' hinson decid-
ed other measures were needed.


Reinforcements were called ini
and in a short time another
sheriff's deputy, several Live Oak
policemen and the fire depart-
ment were on the scene.
As deputy Halford Harris
stood watch with his shotgun
ready to fire on the dog, a ladder
from a fire truck was extended in-
to the lot to pluck Miss Smith
from atop the car.
Once sately outside the reach of
the dog's jaws, Miss Smith was a
bit shaken but was not injured.
The daughter of Florida
Highway Patrolman Bud Smith,
Miss Smith received, inr n-1
uries in the auto accidbtniriday
night. -


Teenagers hurt in wreck


Several teenagers received
minor injuries in a Friday night
auto accident that appears to
have been caused by horseplay.
. Monica Gayle Smith, 16, Route.
4, Box 145, lost control of her car
and smashed through a fence on
White Springs Road causing
minor injuries to herself and two
passengers, according to the
Florida Highway Patrol.
Also receiving minor injuries


were Lyn Lewis, 14, and Karen
Tucker. 15. In the car but not in-
jured were Michael Lloyd, 16, and
Joey Barclay, 15. All are from
Live Oak. ,
According to FHP reports.
Miss Smith's dining was in-
terferred with by Miss Lewis,
who was grabbing and pulling the
driver's arms while seated in the
back.

trol of the car and it skidded off
the road, did one complete turn
and ran through a fence. She was
driving at an estimated speed of
55 m.p.h.
The accident caused an
estimated $250 worth of damage
to the fence.
Those injured were taken to the
Suwannee County Hospital for

released.


Fire partially destroys house


A Saturday evening blaze
started by a gas leak totally
destroyed a portion of a house
and caused considerable damage
to the rest and minor injuries to
its occupants.
The fire at the home of Bob
Crone, Route 7, Box 27, started in
a utility shed adjoining the house
as Crone was reportedly readying
a barbecue.
Fire Chief Howard Wright said
the fire may have been started by
a gas leak in a water heater in the
shed.
Crone's wife Jean and son Tom,
20, reportedly received first, se-
cond and third degree burns to
their hands and feet as they mov-
ed furniture out of the house and
tried to extinguish the fire. They
were not hospitalized.
"Everything went up so fast,"
Tom Crone said. "The whole attic


is gone. It burned the rafters and
burned through the roof com-
pletely on one end."
Crone said they were able to get
most of the furniture out of the
house but added a new upright
freezer, refrigerator-freezer, gas
stove and washing machine in the
shed were destroyed.
There are no estimates yet as to
the total amount of damage caus-
ed by the fire.
Wright said the fire department
had little trouble extin 'guishing
the blaze when it arrived on the
scene and added the investigation
into the cause is not complete.
"It appears to have started.
from a small leak in an LP gas'
water heater that ignited with
something," he said. "There is
heat and fire damage, but the
main part of the house is O.K."

Two fumbles and an
interception could not
stop Suwannee
If you were a Bulldog fan, Fri-
day night's game against Hamil-
ton County was a scary affair.
Hamilton scored first with a 34-
yard field goal and those three
points could have spelled disas-
ter for Suwannee if Hamilton
had managed to score one more
time. The final tally was 21-18
with Suwannee winning by
three.
Suwannee won the toss to
start and elected to receive after
the half. It turned out to be a
smart move. The Dog defense
came out strong in Hamilton's
first possession and held the
Trojans to three and out.
The fans received their first
scare of the night when the Dogs

Last week the SHS Lady,
Bulldog soccer team hosted
a preseason classic as a tune-
up to the regular season,
which begins play this week.
In addition to the Lady
Dogs, the Columbia Lady
Tigers, Santa Fe* Lady
Raiders and the Taylor
County Lady Bulldogs were
participants in the tourna-
ment. Suwannee won both
of their matches, shutting out
Columbia 6-0 on Tuesday
and then besting Santa Fe 3-
1 on Thursday. Other game
scores were Santa Fe 3 Tay-
lor 2 on Tuesday and Taylor
6 Columbia 0 on Thursday.
Suwannee came out strong
against the Lady Tigers from
Columbia, scoring three
first-half goals and adding


three more in the second
half. Getting goals for the
Lady Dogs were Katie Pre-
vatt, Nicki Johnson and Ash-
ley Harris. Kelsey Bowen
picked up .a, hat-trick by
scoring three, one in the first
'half and two in the second
half. Suwannee's defense
limited the Lady Tigers to
only one shot on goal for the
game.
Thursday night Suwannee
squared off with the Lady
Raiders of Santa Fe, a new
district opponent this year,
renewing a rivalry that began
when Suwannee was just
starting soccer several years
ago. The Lady Dogs domi-
nated play in the first half
and went ahead on an Ashley
Harris goal 23 minutes into
the half, but were only able


to take a 1-0 score in at the
half.
The second half would be
more of the same, with Santa
Fe getting few scoring
chances but providing a stiff
defense. ,The lead was ex-
. tended when Kelsey Bowen
was fouled in the box and
awarded a penalty kick just
three minutes into the half,
which she calmly placed in
the back of the net.
Harris added an insurance
goal less than ,two minutes
later when she put in the
third goal of the evening. As
the Suwannee bench started
to clear and several players
changed positions, Santa Fe
was able to penetrate the
Suwannee defense and put

giving Hamilton the ball on the
Dog 31. Dustin Doe, playing his
old teammates, sacked the Tro-
jan quarterback for a big loss on
the 15. The Trojans brought out
the field goal team and kicked a
good one for those three crucial,
points.
.Suwannee bounced right
back with a 40-yard kick off re-
turn by Keith brown. Suwan-
nfee's special teams looked a lot
better against Hamilton. Jarrett
Yulee ran the ball to the 10 for a
first down and then scored from
10 yards out: The touchdown
was called back for one of many
stupid penalties incurred by
Suwannee, Then the Dogs fum-
bled on the 17 and Hamilton re-
covered.
Once aaain the Dog "D" held
Hamilton to three and out. The
punt gave the Dogs great field,

half, the Dogs led 7-3.
The Dogs held Hamilton to
three and out again on the Tro-
jan's next possession. Then
Suwannee caught a special
teams break! Keith Brown hur-
ried the Trojan punter, the ball
went about 12 yards toward the
sidelines. Hawthorne picked the
ball up and scampered into the
,eid zone for'another Dog touch-
down with 8:31 left in the half.
Ridgeway's PAT was good.
Suwannee was up 14-3.
Taj Roundtree hrevt an inter-
ception in the last minutes of the
first half. Hamilton was able to
capitalize on this Suwannee er-
ror and at the half the score was
14-10.
Suwannee received after the
half. The Dogs drove hard to the
Hamilton nine but could not
score. Coach Bobby Bennett
opted to try for a score from the
nine instead of getting the field
goal and the Dogs were unable
to penetrate the Hamilton de-
fense. Hamilton took over on
downs on the four yard line.
With 5:24 left in the game,
Yulee ran dihe ball in for Suitan-


nee from the 10. Ridgeway's
PAT was good and the Dogs
were up 21-10.
But Hamilton drove hard in
their next possession. Hamilton

went for the two-point conver-
sion, and made .it. The score
went to 21-18 and stayed that
way through the rest of the
game.
This was the final game of a
very strange season of football.
Suwannee fans had a new coach
to adjust to as did the students. It
was rough and the Dogs' season
record a miserable 4-7 if you
count, the Kick-Off Classic. If
you count the Spring Jamboree,
Bennett's record as a Dog coach
is 4-8.

FWC seeks more feedback on

Florida's wildlife legacy initiative


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission recently invited further
public comment on the final
submission of Fhoida%'s first
comprehensive wildlife strate-
gy, an action plan for conserv-
ing all of the state's fish and
wildlife and riarwuil places. The
51i.l.-pli. page document, a
com.ponient of Florida's
Wildlife Legacy Initiative, is
part' of one .of the largest qon-
servation planning efforts in the
nation. Each state has devel-
pped a proactive action plan to
conserve wildlife before the:,
become more rare and more


costly to protect.
Florlida's action plan can help
ius fulfill our responsibilities to
conserve wildlife and the'
places they live. The' health of
wildlife is often an early indica-
tor of disease and pollution that
affects us all. Florida's action
plan will conserve v. ildlile. anid
natural places io th,:. benefit of
our health and enji,,' metii, and
for ftirure icnert.!ioins.
'The action plan is a living
document. The FWC is com-
-mitted to. reviewing and revis-
ing the plan with continued
public input. The FWC is plan-
ning a workshop or series of


workshops early in the new
year and til-tihg spring 2Q006,.
with a conference in the fall.
"The strategy is a work in
progress that will continually
be updated, revised and im-
proved based on the input of all
those interested in wildlife con-
servation," said Thomas Eason,
leader of FWC's Species Con-
servation Planning Section.
"Working together, Floridians
are shaping a future filled with
wonderful wildlife resources
and providing for the enjoy-
ment, recreation, and livelihood
of its residents and visitors."
The public review process is


open Sept.16 Dec. 16. Florid-
ians can provide coipents, and
suggestions on the FWC's Web
s i t e
www.MyFWC.com/wildlifele-
gacy.
Florida's Wildlife Legacy
Initiative is the FWC's long-
term approach to secure federal
funding, leverage that funding,
and implement and revise the
conservation strategy. The suc-
cess of the initiative depends on
partnerships throughout. Its
goal is to avert future declines
of native wildlife with a goal to
keep common species com-
mon.

equipped with mufflers. Ac-
cording to FWC's Maj. Jim
Brown, flex pipe alone no
longer is acceptable to help
reduce sound levels. The fi-
nal hearing on the policy
will be at the Comnission's
Nov. 30 Dec. 2 meeting in
Key Largo.
Commissioners also want
staff to hold .an additional
workshop with stakeholders
to discuss implementing a
muffler policy, written code
of ethics and guidelines for
courteous airboat operation.
The FWC already has in-
stalled' mufflers on all of its
airboats and established
guidelines for courteous
airboat operation.
The decision to require
mufflers on airboats came
after a presentation today
by Dr. Stewart Glegg, a re-
searcher at Florida Atlantic
University Engineering De-
partment, whose group re-
searched airboat sound and
produced a report on its
findings for the FWC. Oth-
er experts have reviewed
the report, titled "Measure-
ment and Characterization
of Sound Generated by Air-
boats," to ensure the study
can stand up to public
scrutiny and provide fully
*credible, objective and sci-
ence-based solutions aimed
at reducing airboat sound

al language that allows in-
dividual counties to restrict
vessel sound to 90 decibels
at 50 feet, but that is not a
statewide requirement.
Both the propeller and the
engine contribute to .the
sound airboats produce. At
low revolutions per minute
(rpm) the engine produces
the most sound, but at high-
er rpms the loudest sound is
from the propeller.
This report suggests that
mufflers do reduce airboat
sound levels at moderate
operating speeds, but even
muffled boats exceed. 90
decibels 'at maximum throt-
tle. However, airboat opera-
tors generally don't run at
maximum throttle for long'
periods.
Researchers examined
sound levels produced from
different styles of mufflers,
including both exhaust arid
intake manifold mufflers,
and differing propeller de-
signs, 'operating speeds, and
distances from an observer.
They believe that each of
these components, used to-
gether, could provide the
needed "incremental im-
provements" to reduce air-
boat sound levels signifi-
cantly.
Historically, most law en-
forcement agencies have
accepted "flex pipe" (flexi-.


eff



00 O


r airboats

ble tubing that diverts en-
gine exhaust to behind the
boat) as a reasonable device
for muffling sound. It does-
n't muffle as effectively as
a traditional muffler, but 20
years ago, nobody really
complained since airboats
generally ran in remote ar-
eas.
"However, times have
changed, and the sound of
airboats on lakes, rivers and
wetlands has become a con-
troversial subject in Florida
in recent years," Brown
said. "Increased develop-
ment in these areas, in part,
has resulted in increased
sound complaints from
homeowners and outdoor
enthusiasts."
In 2003, the Florida Leg-
islature considered a bill to
restrict airboat sound levels
statewide to 90 decibels at
50 feet. At the time, the
Senate Natural Resources
Committee amended the bill
and proposed to give the
FWC rulemaking authority
to adopt a uniform munici-
pal code to resolve the air-
boat sound issue.
However, instead of the
bill moving forward, legis-
lators asked the FWC to
host public workshops to
get citizen feedback about
airboat sound and work out
a non-regulatory solution to
the problem. The agency
hosted three such work-
shops in September 2003,
and about 300 people at-
tended and provided com-,
ments.
The FWC is, developing
an outreach campaign to en-
courage airboaters to apply
new and improved technol-
ogy for quieting airboats.
The campaign also will en-
courage. changes in air-
-boater attitudes and operat-
ing procedures to he sepsi-
tive to others who live
around or share the water-
ways.

(NAPSA)-The holiday
season is often a time for
serious eating. In fact,
research suggests that
Americans will most likely
gain one pound during the
holidayseason and those
pounds accumulate,
through the.years. Making
simple lifestyle and
cooking changes will
promote good health
without sacrificing
traditional food and
festivities.
Chef Kathleen
Daelemans, best-selling
author and host of the
Food Network's "Cooking
Thin," is an expert at
making simple changes in,
the kitchen to create
healthy but.satisfying
recipes during the holidays
and year-round.
Daelemans has offered
several tips to aid people
in a healthier holiday
season without forgoing
their favorite dishes.
Daelemans suggests
building holiday menus


around naturally healthful
ingredients. When using
meat or protein, make the
cuts lean; try sweet
potatoes instead of regular
potatoes; and when
incorporating dairy, make
it low fat. Also, fill people's
plates with. lots of fruits,'
vegetables and whole
grains to encourage'a well-
balanced but delicious
holiday meal.
SIn addition, rather than
cooking with solid fats, she
recommends incorporating
vegetable-based liquid oils
like diglyceride-rich
(DAG).oil and canola oil,
as well as olite oil. Clinical
studies show that less
DAG oil is stored in the
body as fat when
compared to traditional
cooking and salad oils.
DAG oil is available as
Enova brand oil
(w ww.enovaoil.com) in
supermarkets nationally.
Enova oil is made from
natural soy and canola oil.

Have A Warm And Natural Holiday


(NAPSA)-This holiday season
some of the most delightful ways to
deck the halls include two
traditional favorites: candles and
flowers.
Here are a few hints from Jill
Slater, head designer, flowerpos
sibilities.com. For fine floral design,
there are five things to consider.
1. Give it a Home. Before
designing, know where your
creation will live-by the bedside, on
a desk or window sill-wherever.
Then choose a container that best
suits the situation, for example, a
recycled blue water bottle might
match your bath towels.
2. Simple Color Combos. Stick to a
simple color theme, three colors
max; two are better and hues of one
color may be best.
3. Select Multiple Shapes. Use a
variety of flower shapes: round, face
flowers such as daisies or
chrysanthemums and cone-shaped
roses or bell fringed freesia.
4. Conditioning Counts. When you'
get your flowers home always re-cut
the stems and set them in water
treated with floral preservative.
5. Handy Tools. Sharp floral
clippers make for a clean and ,
precision cut that lets flowers drink


Give your holiday table a special glow with a
centerpiece created of candles and flowers


the combination, consider these
tips:
Pillar candles look great
with fresh flowers inserted around


them.
*


Float flowers and floating


candles together in a bowl.
Small votive cups filled
with one or several flowers are
simple and easy to create. You can
alternate them with votive candles
down the table or on the window
sill.
Fill miniature gourds with
either flowers or tea-lights. Thenr .
line 'em up.. .
Tall narrow candles (tapers)
are lovely iin long and low
arrangements. Insert two tall tapers

From Infancy to Elderly:
Top 10 Ways to Maintain Your Brain
(ARA) Time and again,
i studies have shown how
important exercise, regular
mental stimulation and balanced
nutrition are to growing minds
during childhood. In fact,
scientists used to think all crucial
i i development occurred between
infancy and 'the teenage years.
.- GCurrent research, however,
A indicates that our brains continue
a, to make new connections well
ou into our senior years, and we
now understand more than ever
... the value of nurturing our brains
St through every stage of our lives.
Babies, for example, are
synaptic sponges. Each time you stimulate a baby's mind --with singing, talking oreven cuddling -- its
busy little brain cells make another of the synaptic connections so critical to healthy development. As a
child grows and learns to walk, talk, read, do math and socialize, even more synapses, or connections,
are made.
Amazingly, the same activities continue to build our brains as we age. People young and old can'
incorporate these 10 tips into their daily lives to help maintain better brain health and ensure peak
performance:
1. Get mental exercise: Read. Write. Take up a new hobby. ,
Mentally stimulating activity strengthens brain cells and the connections between them, and may even
create new cells. Children experience this almost constantly, but as we get older we need to deliberately
challenge our brains. For example, don't just read a book; join a book club to discuss what you've read
and share yourexperiences with others. Also, try a new hobby, like knitting or doing crossword puzzles.
2. Get physical exercise: It's about circulation.
Physical exercise oxygenates the blood, maintains good blood flow to the brain, and encourages the
formation of new brain clIs. If you can afford a gym membership or a personal trainer, then do so.
Running or walking outside can also prove equally beneficial if you make it part of your daily routine.
3. Adopt a brain-healthy diet: Use your head while browsing the supermarket.
Shop the outer ring of your grocery store -- you'll find yourself buying fresh foods, fruits and
vegetables, and eating a more brain-healthy diet. A diet considered brain-healthy is one that reduces the
risk of heart disease and diabetes, encourages good blood flow to the brain and is low in saturated fat,
cholesterol and calories. Studies have shown that high intakes of saturated fat and cholesterol lead to a
higher risk of Alzheimer's disease.-
4. Incorporate DHA into your diet: Get to know the good fats in your life.
While it is often said that Americans consume too much fat, we actually aren't getting enough of the
fats that are good for us. Adequate levels of Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), the omega-3 fatty acid found
in the brain, eyes and heart, is critical for optimal brain development and function in infants, and ongoing
brain function in adults. DHA has also been associated with reducing the risk for Alzheimers disease,
dementia and age-related macular degeneration, a major cause of blindness.
Fatty fish is the primary dietary source of DHA, making it difficult for most people to get enough of this
important brain nutrient from diet alone. (Experts recommend about 220 mg a day for adults). There is
also concern about the environmental contaminants found in some fish and fish oils. Fortunately, there is
a non-fish, vegetarian alternative -- DHA from algae, also known as Martek DHA. Today dietary
-supplements and fortified.foods.with DHA from 4lgae are beoomingoincreasinglyavailable. ,.,
5. Be aware of toxins: Keep your bloodstream clean.
Avoid exposure to environmental toxins, including tobacco smoke and stress. It is also important ;o be
mindful of the toxins that may be in the foods you eat. For example, certain fish may be extremely high in
mercury, leading the U.S Food and Drug Administration and EnvironmentalProtection Agency to caution
pregnant and nursing women, as well as children, to limit their fish consumption. All of these elements
can contribute to the formation of free radicals that, if left unchecked, will damage brain cell membranes.
6. Make sure you get enough antioxidants: Eat your fruits and veggies. .
Antioxidants help provide the body with tools to neutralize harmful free radicals, and are directly
involved in the process by which the brain makes its energy. Good sources of antioxidants can be found
in the produce, frozen fruit, vegetable and whole grains sections of your supermarket.
7. Monitor your homocysteine level: Ask your doctor about the state of your mind.
SAnother area important to cognitive function is your homocysteine level. Homocysteine, found naturally
in your blood, is an amino acid that can negatively affect your cognitive functioning if present in excessive
amounts. Your physician can perform a simple test to determine your homocysteine level and recommend
ways to lower it if necessary.
8. Prevent diabetes: Educate yourself about living a healthy lifestyle.
According to the Alzheimer's Association, there is overwhelming evidence linking high blood pressure
and diabetes with dementia. Insulin resistance, high blood sugar and other unknown factors in people
with diabetes lead to deposits in vessel walls that inhibit blood flow to the brain, heart and other parts of
the body. The American Diabetes Association has found that 30 minutes a day of moderate physical
activity, coupled with a 5 to 10 percent reduction in body weight, resulted in a 58 percent reductionof
type II diabetes.
9. Wear a helmet: Protect your head. It's the only one you've got.
It seems obvious, but too many people arrive in the hospital with irreversible brain injuries, that could
have been prevented if they had only worn a helmet. When participating in contact sports or riding a bike
or motorcycle, always wear a helmet.
10. Seek out.positive emotional experiences: Laughter is the best medicine.
Studies have shown that adults who lead stimulating lives -- are social, have lots of hobbies and laugh
a lot -- develop more neurons, more connections between neurons and more efficiency in using their
brain cells than those who lead sedentary lifestyles.
