0Q:What are some of the warning signs for oral
cancer? .
A: Smokers, naturally, are fair Ti.:.re Ielv iv:,
develop cancer in the mouth ri. ir,,ci.ci iru,',
non-smokers, but we all have to be on guard
for the telltale signs of a cancerous or pre-
cancerous condition. You can help yourself by
l.er,',,:ln,: aly ,'hnr..] a .:,W ,T, .rnahn ,n h ,rl ,jl
2i nTnror H ,.-i : .- :, vn iring v,, w .:ri io ,'
A sore that doesn't heal or bleeds easily.
A white'or red patch patch anywhere in the
mouth.
A change in color to the tissue in your
mouth.
Trouble swallowing, speaking, chewing, or
moving the jaw or tongue.
Any sort of lump or thickening in the cheek
or tongue.
If you notice, any of these warning signs,
contact your dentist immediately for a
professional' assessment. In addition to
smoking, the risk of developing oral cancer
increases with the rate of alcohol
consumption. And the likelihood of developing
oral cancer is far greater for people who
smoke and drink than it is for those who use
either alcohol or tobacco alone. Talk to your
dentist about ways to reduce your risk for oral
cancer.

about 4:30 a.m. at a resi-
dence on Sixth street where
officers had previously tried
to arrest Lee but he had fled.
Working on this evidence,
officers again 'went to the
residence and brought K9
tracking dogs with them.
When they had surrounded
the house, Land went to the
door and knocked, asking the
woman who answered if Lee
was there. He was and
agreed to surrender, which
he did.
Authorities had been look-
ing for Lee for several weeks
on a variety of local warrants
and charges he had abscond-
ed from supervision of the
Florida \DepartmeIt -of Pro-
bation, according to LOPD
Chief NTolan McLeod. Dur-
ing one recent attempt to ar-
rest Lee, McLeod said Lee
fled from officers, resulting
in a vehicle crash.
According to McLeod, Lee
was first found and stopped
at about 1 a.m. Dec. 4 at 800
Pinewood Drive where po-
lice had received a tip that
Lee could be found. The tip
included information that
Lee was in possession of a
handgun, McLeod said.

vehicle and Det. Land or-
dered Lee to get out of the
.vehicle, McLeod said. Lee
ignored the officers' demands
and instead, drove the 1999
Nissan truck toward Det.
Land, striking the officer's
left leg with the vehicle's
front bumper, McLeod said.
At this point Det. Land
fired several rounds from his
department issued'45-caliber
Glock handgun at the left
front tire of the vehicles,
McLeod said. Even though
several tires were flat, Lee
continued fleeing north on
Walker Avenue, McLeod
added. Officers pursued the
vehicle, Nwhich was being dri-
ven at a high'.rate of speed,
until Lee abandoned the ve-
hicle at the intersection of
Scriven Avenue and Orchard
Street, McLeod' said. Inside
the vehicle officers found a
loaded 22-caliber handgun,
McLeod said
In addition to narcotics
warrants, Lee is charged with
aggravated battery on a law,
enforcement officer, aggra-
vated fleeing and eluding ar-
rest, resisting arrest with

US 129 (Ohio Avenue) to get
their "special" spot secured.
By 5 p.m., traffic on US 129
from US 90 to south of South
Oaks Square had slowed to a
crawl as cars drove carefully
through the streets, their dri-
vers aware of the spectators
and their children who were
just inches away excitedly
awaiting the event that has
taken place for nearly 25 years
in Live Oak to help usher in
the official Christmas season.
When the first sirens were
heard, excitement rose to its
height, causing children to
shriek with delight, parents,
grandparents and family to look
toward the sounds that alerted
them the long-awaited parade
was coming. They weren't dis-
appointed with what they saw
for the next two hours.
This year's parade featured
covered wagons, horse-drawn
wagons, old tractors, a two-.
story high truck, kids, dogs,
bands, beauty queens, dancers,
golf carts, .fancy cars, horses
galore, fabulously decorated
floats and entries, all lit up
with Christmas lights.
Local businesses along the
parade route were very busy
with customers before, during
and after the parade, as were'
many .downtown businesses
during the arts and crafts festi-
val during the day.
Cars could be seen parked
as far away as four-five blocks
from the festival. New owners


of a fabulous old Victorian
mansion just down the street
from the festival on Pine Av-
enue, formerly known as the
McDowell House, held an
open house to announce the
beautifully renovated historic
building is on the market.
More than 250 people stopped
by to ooooh and aaaaah over
this Live Oak treasure and it
was all part of Christmas on
the Square 2005.

Occasionally I write about our language
and 'how it sometimes gets molested be-
cause some people convolute what they
write and say.
Actually, there is another area that one of
S my readers has pointed out to me that should
^ be covered in this venue. And I'm very care-
ful with this subject because it involves
women. But since it has been passed on to
me by a female, I feel comfortable and even
compelled in sharing it with you with only
Dwain Walden limited side commentary. ;
In essence, this lady is telling us that language can be simple and.
yet complex when it comes from the female's vantage point and
,hen it is directed toward the male.
Here goes:
".Fine" This is a word women use to end an argument when
they, are right and you need to shut up.
My personal note:. I've also heard it used as a phrase as in "fine...
whatever."
"Five rinttes" If she is getting dressed, this is half an hour.
Five minutes is only five minutes if you have. just been given five
more minutes to watch the game before going out for dinner.
My personal note: When it comes to time ultimatums, my wife di-
vides time into real 'ime and football time. realizing that five min-
utes left in a game generally means about 20 minutes unless both
teams have used all their time outs. The key here, however, is to nev-
er "ask" your wife if she is talking about "real time" or "football
time." \You don't \\ant to suggest options.
"Nothing" 'This is the calm before the storm. This means
"something" and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin
with "nothing" usually end in "fine.',
My personal note: There also is some body language that accom-
panies 'nothing." Body language is a silent accent that cannot be ac-
counted for \% hen you are diagramming sentences.


By Mark Parker : '
CNHI News Service

-- The Top 10 reasons you need to ,be at the coffee shop
every morning:
10. The intellectual stimulation of listening to the global
geopolitical' assessments of someone who hasn't been out of
the county since the 1983 State Fair.
9. If you don't show up you know they're going to be talk-
ing about you.
8. It's the perfect place to, show off your new pickup.
7. It's good to be somewhere everyone can find you in case
the Publisher's Clearinghouse people are looking for you.
6. To avoid doing what you're supposed to be doing.

"Go ahead!" This is a dare, not permission. Don't do it.
My personal note: You can do it, but make sure the boat and trail-
er are already hitched to the truck so that you can leave quickly. In
other w ords, don't let football time get involved here.
"Loud sigh" -Although not actually a word, the loud sigh is of-
ten misunderstood by men. A "loud sigh" means she thinks you are
an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and
arguing with you over "nothing."
My personal note: Never mistake the loud sigh as your wife just
being out of breath. Give it the benefit of the doubt. The loud sigh is
al so sometimes interjected with bod\ language. Hands on the hips,
lips pursed and eyes squinted. The loud' sigh is powerful stuift'hath"a
cannot be conjugated.as you would conventional verbs.
"That's okay" This is one of the most dangerous statements
that woman can make to a man. "That's okay" means that she wants
to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay
for your mistake.
My personal note: Again it's good to have the boat and trailer al-
ready hitched to the truck.
"Thanks" This is the least used of all w ords in the female vo-
cabulary. If a woman is thanking you, do not question it, just say
you're welcome and back out of the room slowly.
M\ personal note: If I interpret this correctly. I saw a parallel in a
movie the other night. A group of explorers had wandered into a
cave and suddenly stumbled upon a mountain lion resting on a
ledge. The big cat let out a guttural sound and showed its fangs but
did not pounce. Although the group was armed, the leader whispered
softly, "Back out slowly ... don't make any sudden moves."
Perhaps someone has already written a "tongue and cheek" book
along these lines. And although I have not seen such a book, if it
does exist I would think that it would be titled, '.If You Don't Know,
I'm Not Going To Tell You." And the first chapter likely\ would be,
"Sure You Are.'"
(Dwam in \'lden is ediuor.'pnbhshe, of The Moultrie Observer, 229-
985-4545. E-mail: dwain.walden@gaflnews.com.)


5. You don't have to waste time withnewspapers or televi-
sion news because somebody there knows pretty much
everything that's going on.
4. You save a lot offuel by staying in one spot all morn-
ing.
3. If you want to'geta rutimo started, that's the place to do
it., : .
2. To find out what all those poor farmers are doing so you
can do the opposite.
1. They actually serve pretty good coffee there, too.

W.R. "Doc" Hughes
June 6, 1913 -
Dec. 2, 2005

R. "Doc" Hugh-'
//fes, 92, of Live Oak,
passed away Friday,
Dec. 2, 2005 in' Suwannee
Health Care Center, Live Oak.
He retired after 40 years .as
owner of \V R. Hughes Dental
Lab in Fort Lauderdale where


I relish this crisp weather
we are having ...especially
the change of colors it brings
to our outback and neighbor-
ing areas. The trees are all
ablaze with the glorious
hues of north Florida's Indi-
an summer ... giving all of
us leaf peepers a chance to
enjoy the beautiful land-
scape mother nature has
painted in the colors of au-
tumn... bright oranges,
golden yellows, and reddish
browns set against a clear
blue sky. It is one of the
pleasures of living in' north
Florida ... we get to experi-
ence a change of seasons. If
only it would stay just like
this until spring ... but of
course it won't. Remember
the old television commer-
cial that use to say "you
can't fool mother n.uatre?"
Well, you can't control her
either ... sooner or later her
winter's chill will arrive to
shiver our bones.
Welcome home to our
friend Barbara Bartlett.
When Barbara lost her hus-
band,,Joe, this past June 23,
she decided to take her
daughter, Lori Sluder, up on
Lori's invitation for Barbara
to visit Fairview, N.C.,
where Lori and her family
live. After an extended stay,
Barbara has returned home
to Wellborn. Barbara and a
friend stopped by to see me
last week. During their visit
Barbara shared with me how
very much she had missed


Wellborn and all the friends
that she and Joe had made
since their move to our area.
Though Joe is no longer with
us, we all remember how
community-minded he was
in the short time we were
blessed to have him as mem-
ber of our outback commu-
nity. Joe was a very active,
on-hands member of both
the Wellborn Community
Association (WCA) and the
Wellborn Volunteer Fire De-
partment (WVFD). Barbara
plans to resume her active
participation in the WCA. I
know her WCA friends will
welcome her back with open
arms.
Wellborn Neighborhood
Watch (WNW) held their an-
nual Christmas party on
Dec. 1 at Wellborn's Blake
Lowe Center. The outback's
globe trotting travelers, Jack
and Jinny Wilson were there,
having just recently returned
from a trip to Texas where
they enjoyed Thanksgiving
with family members who
reside in the Long Star state.
Other guests, besides yours
truly, included Bob Murphy;
Jodie Stern, Joe and Becky
Gaylord who brought
daughter Emiley Maynard
and grandson, Robert;
Latasha "Moo" Crary and
daughter, Diana; Romaine
and Tydius Sheats and their
twins, Malachi and Mariah;
and District 4 Suwannee
County Commissioner Billy
Maxwell. WNW members


present for the festivities
were Russell Smith, coordi-
nator; Betty Barnes, co-coor-
dinator; Jane Campbell, sec-
retary-treasurer, Bruce
Campbell; all-around volun-
teer; and new member Pastor
Jim Messer of Wellborn's
First United. Methodist
Church. Before we sat down
to eat Pastor Jim offered the
blessing of thankfulness for
the banquet of delicious
foods, desserts and bever-
ages WNW provided for the
occasion. Jane Campbell
won the door prize ... which
I desperately did not need
but wanted anyway ... a very
large box of chocolate candy
that the WNW gave to the
lucky winner whose name
was drawn at-the end of the
night's festivities. Good fel-
lowship, food and fun was
enjoyed by all.

nition of this is the begin-

Today is Pearl Harbor
Day, a day in infamy re-
membered by all who were
alive and old enough to un-
derstand the. actions that
took place that day, Dec. 7,
1941, at Oahu, Hawaii, 64
years ago when the Japan-
ese Imperial Army struck
the US, killing more than
2,000 of our. service men
and women and damaging
or sinking almost every
ship the US had in the har-
bor at that time. It was pure
chaos, pure slaughter. In
just a short few hours, we
lost as many men and
women as we've lost in
three years in Iraq. Just 51
days later, I was born to a
father who had served, in
France as a medic in WWI
and was then continuing his
career as what we would
call today a paramedic and
to a mother who was an RN
just three months short of
getting her degree when
they kicked her out of nurs-
ing school because she had,
oh my gosh, MARRIED my


I-


father! How times have
changed and what an injus-
tice they did to my mother.
Mama and Daddy lived in
New Orleans, a place that
soon became the medical
facility for many wounded
US soldiers as they were
brought into the port and
cared for on ships there,
safe from the enemy (most
of the time, anyway).
Mama and my brother,
Steve, soon took a train to
Madison for me to be born
there, but as I look back, I
think it may have been also
for the safety of small town
America and Daddy proba-
bly insisted she take us to
safety.
Pearl Harbor Day is a
subject I just don't feel
qualified to write much
about since it's almost sa-
cred ground. Daughter
Kathy'visited the site of the
bloody slaughter of our
troops several years ago
and brought back a cop\ of
the newspaper from that
day. How they got so much


Dec. 9 & 10 8:00 am until
Lots of toys, little girls clothes
and misc. household goods.

Scooter, battery operated
child's car, strollers, car seats,
ride-on train for toddlers, high
chair, key boards and more.

news together and in print
in those days with what
they had to work with, I'll
never know. I searched the
Internet by putting in the
words, "Pear Harbor Day"
and found loads of informa-
tion that includes info, pho-
tos and much more. It's a
time we should never for-
get, should always honor
those who served, those
who survived and those
who lost their lives that
day. It was an, uncon-
scionable act by a country
that is now our "friend,"
from' whom we buy many,
many things that fill our
lives. Yet, for those fami-
lies who experienced the
slaughter, the horror, the
losses, it will remain a. day
in their memories and those
of their generations after
them, that will never be for-
gotten.
That day we should have
learned never to downplay
information that seems out-
landish, yet is 100 percent
correct. We were warned it
was coming, but we
laughed it off...not going to
happen, we're too power-
ful, 'no one would dare try
that...we said. Hah! Guess
we had to learn the hard
way, didn't we. Those who
ignored the warnings
should have been given the


full punishment. for their
lack of action. Why? Back
then, there was a media to
look after America's inter-
ests, but they didn't have
the ability to communicate
as quickly as we do to-
day... news is instant. I can
put any story I want on the
Internet seconds after it
happens and it can be on
CNN, Fox, CBS, etc. within
minutes. Back then, it was
gopher slow. Back then the
media knew their calling
and their obligation. .If we
had the same communica-
tions back then as today,
could we have stopped the
slaughter? Perhaps, but it is
all history now, a history
we honor today as we look
back and take a moment of
silence to honor those he-
roes who rescued others,
gave their lives for America
and fought bravely for
America's flag. We stand in
awe of their pride, their
duty-bound actions, their
sacrifice.
Next year will be the 65th
anniversary of Pearl Harbor
Day but this year, take a
moment to honor those he-
roes who died, those who
. survived. Most of them are
gone on to their reward now
due to age, a few still are
alive and they must be so
proud they are Americans.

Fessler said iriost people
who take a flight for the first


time usually enjoy the ride.
In the flight training stu-
dents learn basic aerody-
namics and learn how to ma-
neuver and control the plane
and how to take off and land.
Students study maps to pre-
pare for cross country skills
which teach how to navigate
the plane from one point to
another. Learning to read in-
struments is taught as well
as basic aviation terininolo-
gy.
"The basic terminology is
almost like learning a for-
eign language," he said.
"Once students get the ter-
minology down they are
ready to control a plane."
In learning to read instru-
ments students learn, the
three controls on the air-
plane that are maneuvered
by the hands and feet. Main-
taining altitude keeps the
plane steady vertically,.
maintaining the heading
keeps the plane steady hori-
zontally and maintaining the
rudder keeps the plane from
skipping or slipping.
"In the air you're in a 3-D
aviation environment, and it
takes all these skills to fly,"
he said. "However, though it
seems difficult. anyone can.
learn to fly. Really, the hliid-
est thing about fl. ing is de-
ciding whether to go up or
not in certain weather."
Flight students can obtain
a private flying license in as
little as a couple of months
or a year depending on how
rigorously they train. Stu-
dents learn the basics in the
ground .school; complete a
minimum of 40 hours of
flight time and take a written
and flight test.
Attending. flight school in
Bolivar, Tenn., Fessler has
been a pilot 'foi' about 15
',ea;s ii d hai been flying'
most of his life. He %sJ
taught by his dad, Jim, also'.a

Smith's crew often worked
overtime and weren't paid for
the extra hours, but their' didn't
mind because they were offer-
ing their service for their
country.
Before the war Smith was a
machinist in New Orleans
making 20 cents per hour. In
the U.S. Navy he had a
monthly income of $84.
"During the war every re-
cruit station was crammed,"
he said explaining the .draft
Was enforced. "There wasn't
even enough people to train
them."
During World War II Smith


said at least 85 percent of the
country supported the war,
and most enlisting were vol-,
unteers. However, some
protest groups against the war
did exist.
. "Besides patriotism, Ameri-
ca wanted to stop Hitler from
taking over the world," he
said.
Smith said America highly.
speculated they would have to
go to war about four years be-
fore Pearl Harbor's Attack on
Dec. 7, 1941.
"It wasn't just the Jews who
were being persecuted, it Was
anyone who was associated
with them," he said. "And
there were Jewish synagogues


in the south."
After Smith served for three
years in the war he came back
to the states to serve as a ma-
chinist instructor on a military
base. He was later reassigned
to duty. .
He served six years in the
Navy and two years in the.
Navy Reserves. He has since.
then served as commander for
the Live Oak American Le-
gion and is currently serving
as a member of the Veterans'
Cemetery Committee in Live

Pacific, and cut off the ship-
ment of oil and other raw ma-
terials to Japan.'
Because' Japan was poor in.
natural resources, its govern-
ment viewed these steps, es-,
pecially the embargo on oil as
a threat to the nation's sur-
vival. Japan's leaders respond-
ed by resolving to seize the re-,
source-rich territories of
Southeast Asia, even though
that move would certainly re`
sult in war with the United
States.
Admiral Isoroku Yamamo-
to, commander of the Japan-
ese fleet, devised a plan to im-
mobilize the U.S. fleet at the
outset of the war with a sur-
prise attack.
On Dec. 7 the six Japanese
carriers launched a wave of
181. planes composed of tor-
pedo bombers, dive bombers,
horizontal bombers and fight-


ers. An alert operator of an'
Army radar station at Opana
spotted the approaching first
wave of the attack force. The
officers to whom those reports
were relayed did not consider
them significant enough to
take action. The Japanese air-
crews achieved complete sur-
prise when they hit American
ships and military installations
on Oahu shortly before 8 a.m.
Of the more'than 90 ships at
anchor in Pearl Harbor, 'the
primary targets were the eight
battleships anchored there.
Twenty-one ships of the' U.S.
Pacific Fleet were sunk or
damaged. Aircraft losses were
188 destroyed and 159 dam-
aged, the majority hit before
they had a chance to take off.
American dead numbered
2,403. There were-1,178 mili-
tary and civilian wounded.
Japanese losses were com-
paratively light. Twenty-nine
planes, less than 10 percent of


the attacking force,' failed to
return to their carriers.
The Japanese success was
overwhelming, but they failed
to damage any American air-
craft carriers, which had been
absent from the harbor., They
neglected to damage, the
shoreside facilities at the Pearl
Harbor Naval Base, which
played an important role in the
Allied victory in World War
II. Most importantly, the"
shock and anger caused by the
surprise attack on Pearl Har-
bor united a divided nation
and was translated into a
wholehearted commitment -to
victory in World War II.

ers of record Jan. 3.
"As a product of the fa-
vorable results over the last
two years and our view of
the company's future
prospects, the board voted
to increase the dividend by
50 percent for the January
payment, explained Chair-
man and CEO Thomas A.

"Paul brings a broad
range of relevant experi-
ence to our board," stated
James in making the an-
nouncement. "He offers
global experience and a
strong accounting back-
ground, complemented by
financial expertise. And as
Raymond James' growth
continues, Paul's in-depth
knowledge related to at-
tracting qualified execu-
tives aud -other high-level
personnel will also prove
beneficial."
Reilly, who resides in St.
Petersburg, began his
tenure as chairman and
CEO with Korn/Ferry Inter-
national,'a premier provider
,of executive search and
leadership development so-
lutions, in 2001. Prior to

overall strategy and imple-
mentation of the firm's
products, services and in-
frastructure on a global ba-
sis.
Reilly is currently chair-
man of the. board at

and serves as a board mem-
ber for Students In Free En-
terprise (SIFE), the Nation-
al Leadership, Roundtable
on Church Management
(NLRCM), 'the Mendoza

the College of Science Ad-
visory Council at the Uni-
versity of Notre Dame.
He earned both his bache-
lor's degree in preprofes-
sional studies and an MBA
in finance from the Univer-
sity of Notre Dame. ,
Reilly joins the Raymond
James Board as an indepen-
dent director. Lead director
Jonathan A. Bulkley of

opened huge with a win
against' Valdosta High

wrestler wins when he has 16
more points than his oppo-
nent.
Four Dogs pinned against
Valdosta. Michael Wright,
wrestling in the 215 weight-
class, had the. fastest pin.

in the first round. Caleb
Sanders als6 pinned his op-
ponent along with Barney
Wainik right and Justin
Mowls. Caleb Wainwright
won by a technical pin.
Other winners for Suwan-
nee were David Sanders,
William McCrimor and
Greg Boyle.


The match started with
Caleb Wainwright in the 130
weight class. Wainwright
placed second in state last
year and kicked off this sea-
son with a technical pin
when the score hit 17-1.
Suwannee went up 5-0.
Next on the mat was Peter
Kyne. Kyne, a state qualifier
from last season, fought hard
but lost on points. The score
went to 5-4.

next in the 140 weight class.
Willy Mac won on points and
the score went to 8-4 Suwan-
nee.

.a successful trip to the state
meet last year where he took
fifth, wrestled in the 145
weightclass. Boyle won by
points and the score went to
11-4.
Barney Wainwright,
wrestling in 152, also did
well at state last year going
4-1 to take second. Wain-

Laxton gave it a great fight but
lost the match on points. The
Suwannee score went to 17-7.
; Octavious Grandville, up
I from JV last year, wrestled in
the 161 weight class.
Grandville gave it his best but
lost on points. The team score
. went to 17-7, with Suwannee
holding on to a 10-point lead.
Justin Mowls is another
Suwannee state qualifier from
last year. Mowls had by far the
most interesting match of the
evening. Mowls had a strong
opponent who looked good
early in the match. But Mowls,
apparently ?n better condition,
held up and pressed the Geor-
gia boy hard in the last round.
The Valdosta ,wrestler bit
Mowls on the hand as things
grew heated in the last minute.
The official ruled it.accidental


and the mlitch ient on fM'l's
immediately pinned his man.
The team score went to 23-10.
Michael Wright, another
state qualifier from last year,
was up .next in the 215 weight
class. Wright manhandled his
opponent. Wright's speed and
strength outclassed the Valdos-
ta wrestler. The match was over
in little over a minute. Wright
got the pin and the Suwannee
lead advanced six more points
to 29-10.
Jon Snyder, wrestling for the
first time in his life, was
Suwannee's entry in the heavy
weight class. Snyder had a ban-
ner year as a football player.
He's big and strong, just inex-
perienced. The crowd cheered
for Snyder as it looked like he
would win early in :he game.
But Snyder's inexperience al-'
lowed the Valdosta wrestler to
get the upper hand and Snyder
was pinned. The score went to


29-16
The wrestling moved from
giants to the light weights.
Suwannee's 103 weight class
wrestler was Merritt Burris.
Burris,-new to wrestling hung
on but was eventually pinned
by a much more experienced
wrestler. The score went to 29-
22 with Suwannee up only by
seven.
Caleb Sanders wrestled for
Suwannee in the 110 class.
Sanders was quick and deadly,
pinning his opponent. Suwan-
nee went up.-35-22.
Levi Wainwright, another
Suwannee state qualifier from
last year, lost his match on
points in the 125 weight class.
The team score went to 35-25.
The .last wrestler up for
Suwannee was David Sanders.
Sanders, another state qualifier
form last year, won his match
on points. The final score was a

Now for the upcoming

Chambliss made the rota-
tion but according to head
FSU baseball coach Mike
Martin, Chambliss will be
either number-one or two
in that rotation. Martin'
said returning starter
Bryan Henry will be either
number-one or two de-
pending on Chambliss.
Martin also said if
Chambliss can get out and
throw his fastball where it
needs to be thrown, he can
be one of the top five
pitchers in all of college
baseball. Chambliss' domi-
nant pitch is his curve ball.
martin said he needs to get
his fastball operating.
"It will be a great battle
all year to see who pitches
on Friday night between
Henry and Chambliss,"
Martin said.

Products for contact lens care
Over 30 million Americans wear contact lenses, arid 90% wear such
lenses for vision correction. At the present, there are more than 100
nonprescription products available for contact lens care, which makes
maintenance and care of lenses confusing. Three types of contact lenses
exist: hard lenses, rigid gas permeable lenses, and soft lenses. Each type
of lens requires different methods and products for maintenance; therefore
it is important to ensure familiarity with the specific contact lens type a
person may be wearing.
Care of soft contact lenses includes daily cleaning, disinfecting, and
weekly enzymatic cleaning. Daily cleaners remove dirt and dust that has
gathered on the lens during the day. Weekly enzymatic cleaners further
remove tough particles. Saline solutions are used for rinsing and storing.
New to the market are multipurpose products that contain various
combinations of daily cleaners, disinfectants, and saline solutions.
Multipurpose solutions are best used with disposable lenses and are not
intended for extended wear soft contact lenses. Consult a pharmacist or
eye care professional for help in choosing the appropriate, products to
ensure that lenses are comfortable and lasting. 222603-F

Three hunting accidents in



four days mar deer season


Submitted

The general gun hunting
season has started, and al-
ready investigators from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) North Central Region
are investigating three hunt-
ing accidents.
The most recent accidents
both happened Nov. 22, at
around the same time of day,
4:30 p.m., but on different
coasts one in Duval Coun-
ty, the other in Levy County.
The first accident of the gen-
eral gun deer hunting season
was on Nov. 19 in Hamilton
County. All three involved
hunters pursuing deer' with
dogs. Luckily for the vic-:
tims, all of the accidents
were not life-hlii.iter.niri'-
In. Duval County, two
boys, ages 10 and 14, were
hunting with dogs in the


West Fiftone Hunt Club near
Baldwin. The 14-year-old
shot at a deer with his shot-
gun and a stray pellet struck
the 10-year-old boy who was
standing along the same road
about 100-150 yards away.
The pellet hit the boy in the
upper chest, penetrated his
clothing and broke the skin.
He was life-flighted to
Shands Hospital in Jack-
sonville, but luckily his thick
clothing prevented the pellet
from penetrating his chest
cavity.
Farther southwest in Levy
County, on the same day, an-
other hunter using dogs to
hunt deer in the Gulf Ham-
mock Wildlife Management
Area suffered another pellet
injury. The man was hunting
with a group of dog-hunters
from the Gulf Hammock
Hunters Association when
one of the hunters shot at a


deer and a stray pellet struck
the victim in the ankle. The
man sought medical treat-
ment, but his wound was mi-
nor.
Saturday, a hunter was
struck by buckshot at the
Hickory Island Hunt Club in
Hamilton County. The acci-
dent happened around 2
p.m., while about a dozen
hunters were pursuing a deer
using dogs. The deer ran
across a road between the
shooter and another hunter
who was standing by his
truck. The victim and his
truck were both hit by pel-
lets. Both hunters were wear-
ing bright orange hats as re-
quired by the club's rules for
safety and high visibility.
The victim was transported
by another hunter to Trinity
Hospital in Jasper and later
transported to Shands Hospi-
tal in Gainesville where he


was treated and released.
Both the victim and shooter
were back hunting at the club
the next day.
All three hunting accidents
are under investigation by
the FWC.
"This is a good time to re-
mind hunters of two of the
most important safe hunting
rules," FWC spokesperson
Officer Chris Jones said.
"Those are, number one,
know your target and, num-
ber two, know what's beyond
your target before pulling the
trigger. All three of these ac-
cidents could likely' have
been avoided if those in-
volved had followed the ba-
sic rules."

FWC proposes amendments


to blue crab management


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) recently pro-
posed a series of blue crab rule
amendments, intended to ad-
dress requests from commer-
cial fishermen regarding the
new blue crab effort manage-
ment program.
Last April, the FWC ap-
proved a rule to control
growth. and over-capitaliza-
tion of the commercial- blue
crab fishery, by managing the
number of fishers and traps.
The rule, recommended by
FWC's Blue Crab Advisory
Board, establishes a blue crab
limited-entry eiidoi cniemint


program, that limits the total
number. of commercial blue
crab fishermen and allows
each qualified fisherman to
use up to an equal number of
traps.
This program includes cer-
tain qualifying criteria (based
upon reported blue crab land-
ings over a specified period)
for fishermen to obtain an en-
dorsement, which allows them
to commercially harvest blue
crabs.
The program also requires
all blue crab traps to. be tagged
and allows the transfer of en-,
dorsements to other persons
under specified conditions.


More Suwannee


Lady basketball


Fees to support this program,
which begins in the 2006-
2007 license year, require ap-
proval by the 2006 Florida
Legislature.
To address requests re-
ceived from commercial fish-
ermen, the FWC is proposing
additional rule provisions that
would allow qualified fisher-
men affected by the 1995 net
limitation amendment, stone
crab fishermen, and shrimp
fishermen who have harvested
blue crabs as bycatch, to' ob-
tain .a non-transferable Blue
Crab Limited Entry Endorse-
ment.
This will allom displaced
net fisiheirmen to iiue tip to 100
traps to hardest hard shell blue
crabs, and allow shrimpers
and stone crabbers a daily by-
catch of 200 pounds of blue


crabs. The FWC also intends
to work with its Blue Crab Ad-
visory Board to consider
whether these fishermen
should be required to use their
endorsements for a specified
period of time in order to keep
the endorsement.
In addition,. blue crab har-
vesters would be allowed to
obtain permission from the
FWC Division .of Law En-
forcement to let another per-
son transport, deploy or re-
trieve their traps. on a short-
term basis under certain condi-
tions for reasons of hardship.
A final public hearing on
these rule amendment prppos-"
als will take place ,at the
FWC's Nov. 30-Dec. 1, meet-
ing in Key Largo, and the rules
would take effect July 1, 2006
if approved.


Keaton Beach Fishing

Report Dec. 2, 3 2005


Gosh? I guess some folks will
have a hard time believing me,
but the four days from Thursday
thru Sunday were simply unbe-
lievable trout fishing on board
my boat, and Mickey Wheeler's
Sunday!
Cal Beanblosssom, of
Sylvester, Ga. and I caught trout
and reds every where we fished
Thursday and threw back 12
trout over 20 inches long.
Then Friday and Saturday I
had charters with Arthur and
Ellen Eidson, and we caught and
threw back over 25 trout over
20-inches long and caught and
released 15 keeper reds from 2
to 2.5 ft. of water before moving
to deeper water 3-4 ft. and
caught a trout on every cast Fri-
day. Saturday we had half as
many Big fish early, but several
over five pounds caught and re-
leased. We caught our fish orn
Assassin five-inch shads fished
un-weighted on 5/0 worm hooks
on Triple Fish X rated copoly-
mer ten pound' test with 25
pound test Triple Fish X line
leaders. We switched to Mir-
rOlure Catch 2000's when the
water wag 2 ft. or deeper and
then went to live shrimp later in
the mornings. AwesomeFishing
as the Yankees would say!
Sunday, Mickey Wheeler and
I released so many trout from
four to five pounds you would-
n't believe it? Suffice it to say
we fished three hours and only
had two' fish less than 20-inches
long. Mickey and I fished
Bomber Long A's and Mir-
rOlure Catch 2000's and Catch
Jr's in 2 3 feet of water.
Saturday, TGIF charters with


captain Edward Thomas took
Jim Hardee and Casey Hardee
of Plant City out with Kevin
Taylor of Orlando and they lim-
ited out on trout using shrimp
under Cajun Thunders. Their
largest trout was 22-inches long
and they had one redfish 21-
inches long.
Frank Jennie and Drew Ruti-
nger of Valdosta, Ga. had 14
trout and a bunch of shorts Sat-
urday, using live shrimp under
Cajun Thunders.
Dan, Danielle, Megan and
Zach Greene all of Gray, Ga.
had their limit of trout Thursday,
Friday and Saturday while fish-
ing with Bass Assassins under
Cajuns in 2-3 feet of water.
Joey Landreneau, of
Gainesville weighed in a live 6.5
pound trout in the Marina Sun-
day. He also had a 5.5 pounder
both released with a half dozen
others all over 21-inches long.
Joey was fishing Catch 2000's
in 2-3 feet of water.
Jack Haugton and Bob Pen-
nington of Warner Robins, Ga.
had some small keeper trout Fri-
day when I saw them and I gave
Jack a half dozen worm hook
and a handful of Assassin five
inch shads and told him he was
fishing too deep in three feet of
water. The next time I saw the
two of them they had a beautiful
catch of trout all over 19 inches
and two around four-and-a-half
pounds! They started over an ex-
tra day just to fish the Assassin
flukes in red/Gold shiner in two
feet of water for another limit of
big trout Sunday. Bob said they
threw back a dozen over 20 each
day!


Grouper fishing rules differ in
State-Federal Gulf waters
Grouper bag limits in state wateis haven't changed; in federal
waters in the Gulf of Mexico. dhe\ ha\ e.
Federal \ aters begin nine nautical mnules offshore i the Gulf. A
nautical tule is 6.0')7 115 feet as opposed to a statute mile. which
is 5,2MS feet.
In Gulf state waters, the daily bag minit for grouper is five, only
two of thiucli can be red giouper. The new bag limit in federal wa-
ters in the Gulf allows three grouper, only one of'whihl can be red.
Also, Gulf federal waters are closed to grouper har est ttrough-
out November and December. but there is no closed season in
state waters.

GFWC Woman's Club volunteers put on aprons


GFWC Woman's Club of Live Oak volunteers don aprons
Aug. 5 to assist kindergarten students at Suwannee Primary
School (SPS) during their lunch periods for the first week of
school.
The first few days of school are full of new experiences


for the children. Lunch time can be a little scary. The women
helped the youngsters find the proper table, then aided hem
in opening those pesky mustard, ketchup and mayonnaise
packets. And, opening milk cartons can be a challenge as
well. The children enjoy having the ladies close by to help


them when they need it.
The women volunteering were GFWC Woman's Club of
Live Oak president Nancy Allen, Gail Mills, Opal Hoffman,
Janet Theriault, Lynn Rutherford, Eileen Box, Rita Haynes
and LaVerne Jernigan.

mer Debbie Owen.
Chip worked with his par-
ents until he and Debbie pur-
chased the funeral home in
1983. Debbie worked along-
side her husband as his secre-
tary and took great pride in
helping those in need
through very difficult times
in their lives.
Historically speaking:
Brody C. Harris Jr. started
working with the (original)
Suwannee Funeral Home
and for Fred Green, the own-
er, in 1943. Henry Grant was
then the manager, 'until his
death in 1953. At this time
Brody was promoted to man-
ager and remained so until
he and his wife, Dorothy,
started Harris Funeral Home
sometime after 1964. Chip,
Brody's oldest son, at age 14
began working as an ambu-
lance attendant at night and
on weekends and working
funerals after school and on
weekends.
In late 1983, Chip and his
wife, Debbie, purchased Har-
ris Funeral Home from his
parents and continued to op-
erate as such until they -old
to the Loewen Group in De-
cember, 1992: They stayed on


as manager and secretary un-
til May, 2000.
In November, 2005 they ac-
cepted the opportunity to re-
turn to the funeral profes-
sion. Chip and Debbie want
you to know how humble
and honored they are to be
able to serve you, the families
of Suwannee County, once
again. ,v.ith thoughtful, dig-
nified and personalized ser-
vice.

Chicken Soup and Wet Heads:

The Truth About Cold and Flu Myths
At some point when you were a child, your mother may have told you not to leave the
house with a wet head. "You'll catch a cold, the minute you walk out that door," she
would say. As children we laughed it off, but now as adults we sometimes wonder, was
what she said true?
With every winter season comes a barrage of sniffles, sneezes, coughs and colds.
However, most people don't run to the doctor for every hint of a cold or flu. Instead, they.
turn to the age old motherly wisdom that's been passed down through the generations. You
know, those tales that supposedly can help prevent or treat common cold weather
ailments.
But which ones are really valid? Can you actually catch a cold from not drying your
hair before going outside in the winter?
"Many of these adages actually do have some truth to them," says Phyllis Brown,
JS-F CRNP. "Ho everi..lt as many of those sayings are purely fictitious."
To help demystify these long
established sayings, here is a list.
of common myths and the real-
trttih that lies within them.
W Cold weather makes it easier
;4 to catch a cold.
Fiction. Cold weather has-
nothing to do with catching a
cold. Many people become ill
S l r h due to the fact that we tend to
t spend more time indoors in"i
E. o. close contact with other people
Sin heated homes. Because of the
heated close quarters, germs are
"26- more easily passed from person
4, to person.
You can catch the flu from.
getting a flu shot.
Fiction. The flu vaccine is
: made from an inactivated virus,
S:. so \ O cannot catch the flu from
S. a flu shot. However, it's not
S inon to experience some
soreness at the point where the
injection was administered, and
on occasion some people can
S feel a little under the weather

In Fiction and fictiort. "This is
definitely not a good idea in
either ca-e," says Brown. "'It is
3.4 F ,extrenmel ,important to sta \,exll
b.drated 'whfi you're sick.
Starving a cold by not drinking
S ;plenty of water and juice could
do even more, damage."
Likewise, overeating when you have a fever is not ideal either. It is important to eat, but
you should not overindulge. Eat enough to satisfy your appetite, and make sure to drink'
plenty of fluids.
Herbal remedies are helpful for treating colds.
Fact. An herbal remedy will not cure. your cold, but in many cases an herbal remedy can
alleviate many cold symptoms and allow you to feel better. For many people, head and
chest congestion are the most irritating aspects of being sick because a stuffy nose' and
,,, heavy head make it very difficult to sleep.
Humidifiers utilized in conjunction with an herbal aroma can provide substantial relief
0.D. from head and sinus congestion as well as help soothe an itchy or scratchy throat. The
0.D. Ultra Sonic Personal Humidifier from Mledisana is one humidifier hat actually comes.
with a eucalyptus cold therapy to specifically combat congestion and throat irritation.
Chicken soup will help you feel better.
Fact and fiction. It is true that warm chicken soup will make a sore throat feel better.
However, chicken soup does not have any special medicinal healing power to cure a cold.
Along with chicken soup, the notion that hot toddies will provide relief is absolutely false.
When you're sick, it is definitely important to avoid alcohol. Beverages containing
alcohol contribute to dehydration, which can compound the effects of a cold or flu.
It's easier to catch a cold if you go outside with wet hair.
And the answer is: Fiction! The only way to catch a cold or flu virus is if you come in
contact with one. Having a wet head or wet feet will not make you more susceptible to
catching a cold. Wet hair in chilly -\ weather can sometimes lower body temperature and
make you feel colder, which in turn can reduce resistance to a virus or cold, but you will
not get sick purely from having wet hair in cold weather.
ye So, was your mother right?.Well, not always, but she was trying to make sure you were
healthy. Knowing the truth behind the myths will help you better prevent and treat any
cold or flu bug, and that will definitely keep mom happy.

Tips for preparing the perfect holiday turkey


(ARA) Holiday feasts can.
often end up more draining
than enjoyable. You know the
typical scenario; waiting eight
hours for the turkey to cook,
taking up all the room in the
oven for rolls and pies.,
Worrying about how things will
turn out. All that effort, only to
sit down at the table and bite
into a dry, tough turkey breast.
Never again! Let these
simple tips from TV chef Bryan
Woolley help you prepare the
perfect poultry feast moist,
juicy and full. of holiday flavor.
All while freeing up time for
baking warm rolls and pies in
the oven., Roasting a gourmet'
turkey can be simple and easy.
First. choose a bird, that's the
right size. The standard for
holiday cooking suggests one;
pound of meat: per person. Get
a slightly% larger bird if you
want to allow enough meat for
some leftover sand\ iches while
watching the game later. Frozen
turkeys m ill require a couple of
days to thaw in the fridge
before cooking. To avoid
contamination and spoilage, do
not thaW your holiday fowl on
the countertop.
"I like to follow three tips for
ensuring a delicious, moist
turkey," said chef Bryan
Woolley, host of the TV
cooking series Eat, Drink and
Be Merry. "First, I inject the,
meat \% ith a syringe. Then, I rub
the skin to create a flavorful
'eal .\nd fiiall',. I cook iith a
moisture-infusing process to
speed up cooking time and
keep all the moisture inside the
bird."
The night before the feast,
inject your turkey using a meat
injector. Convenient and 'simple
to use, these large syringes
allow you to infuse the flavors
of your favorite white wine,
beer or lemon-lime soda to
create added flavor. Be sure to,
infuse about 1/3 cup of liquid
into each breast and a small
amount into the thigh and leg
areas. While the bird rests in the
fridge overnight, the juices will
marinade deep into the meat.
Prepare your bird with a
coating of dry spices arid
seasonings; creating a skin full
of rich flavor that -permeates
into the meat while roasting.
Most dry rubs have a high salt
content, which helps create a
seal. around the turkey, ensuring
moist and tender results.
"A variety of new cooking
tools are available that
guarantee a ,fast and juicy
holiday turkey," Woolley said.
"Using a product that forces
steam up inside the cavity helps


keep the meat tender and juicy."
The Turkey Cannon is
fashioned after the popular
'beer can chicken' craze, which.
uses a can of beer under a
squatting chicken to speed-roast
the bird in any outdoor grill.
However, ,the Turkey Cannon
takes the concept a step further,
allowing cooks to use the item
on the grill or in the kitchen
oven.
The concept works, like this.
First, pour a cup of white wine
(beer, soda or other liquid
mixture if you prefer) into the
cylinder of the Turkey Cannon.
After rubbing dry seasoning
onto the bird, place the turkey's
cavity over, the reclined
c linder, breast up. Hole. in the
top of the cylinder % ill allow
the steam from the liquid to
infuse deep .into the breast meat.
This process not only speeds up
cooking time, but also adds
flavor. A 12-pound turkey roasts
in.only a couple of hours. Tip:
When cooking in the oven,' be
sure to use a cookie sheet or
tray under the Cannon to catch
any drippings for gravy.
Another concept that gets the
turkey out of the kitchen and"
onto the patio is the Keg
Roaster. This unique dome
looks like a large beer keg,
holding the turkey upright over
a can of your favorite beverage.
First you must drink out half of
the can's contents. An
unopened can could explode; a
full,can \ ill spill Iquid all over,'
and an empty can doesn't add
flavor or moisture while
cooking. The liquid steams the
turkey from the inside while the
heat from the included single-.
burner cooker roasts the bird on
the outside. Cook about two
hours for a 12-pound turkey.
The meat is tender and full of
juice.. Tip: Add a handful of
soaked wood chips under the
'turkey to infuse- excellent
smoke flavor into the meat.
Juicy turkey is always easy
when using the cast iron


I"


Ultimate Turkey Ronstei by
Camp Chef The natural
properties of cast iron
cookware seal. in the moisture
and add flavor. This roaster sits.
atop any kitchen range top por
outdoor burner. A center cone
enables the unit to work like a
convection oven, forcing, heat

to circulate rapidly throughout
the roaster and speeding up
cooking time.
Pouring a cup of liquid into
.the bottom of the Ultimate
Turkey Roaster steams the
flavors deep into the bird. A 12-
pound tLrke\ cooks in less than
,two hours on a standard
outdoor burner ol about 4 hours
on an electric stove 'top. Either
way, the oven is available for
baking any last minute treats.
Tip: Always cook turkey to 170
degrees F when checked with a
calibrated meat thermometer.
When cooking any poultry,
ensure maximum food safety

by consistently washing your
hands and preparation surfaces
with dish soap and hot water.
"Do not allow utensils to cross
contaminate with other items
and cause potential sickness,"
said Woolley.
Dry, tasteless turkey is
finally a thing of the past.
Every holiday feast can be full
of ; delicious memories by
.injecting marinade, applying a
dry rub and roasting with a
moisture-infusing accessory.
