Suwannee County Sheriffs
Office. Roberts radioed ahead

by Sheriff "Lt. Wayie Mus-
grove. The passenger in the
vehicle had been reported,
missing and there was also an
open warrant for her arrest,
according to the Sheriffs Of-

deputy determined she had
been held captive by White
for approximately three weeks
and had been unable to notify
anyone of her situation, ac-
cording to the Sheriffs Office.
The victim told the deputy
that when she attempted to es-
cape, White hit her in her right
eye, causing it to turn black,
and threw a portable clock at
her, according to the Sheriffs
Office. Roberts said he ob-
served a small bump and cut
on her forehead.
White was arrested and
transported to the Suwannee
County Jail where his bond'
has been set at $5,000.

sor oversaw the count. The
money was then taken by
FDLE, SCSO deputies and
OALE officers to Tallahassee
to the state FDLE office where
the process of getting the mon-
ey turned over to the agencies
involved with the seizure and
the case has already gotten un-
derway.
The driver of the semi,'
Emilio Arevalo Quintero, 24,
of Humble, Texas, was de-
tained until the money count
was complete and also ques-
tioned, Cameron said.
Cameron said Quintero denied
any knowledge of the money,
its existence or ownership.
The brand new trailer
loaded with the marble was re-
leased to the owner, Cameron
said.
Since no one claimed the
money, the state can seek and
likely will get the money re-
leased for distribution to the
agencies involved. And how
will that distribution happen?
The division of the money will
be decided at a future date.
Cameron said the money
was seized through the coop-


eration of several law enforce-
ment agencies, including the
SCSO, which is assisting the
other agencies with the case.
In addition to the Live Oak
seizure, OALE officers at the
Interstate 95 inspection station
near Jacksonville used a gam-
ma ray machine ,to check a
truck headed to an Apopka ice
cream plant late Friday night,
Dec. 9 with a load of concen-
trated creamer and found hol-
lowed-out portions of wooden
pallets. Further investigation
led to the discovery of 361
pounds of marijuana con-
cealed in the hiding place, ac-
cording to the FDA. The street
value of that marijuana is be-
lieved to be nearly $2.2 mil-
lion, according to FDA.
: The driver of that truck, Al-
bert A. Omane, 49, of Bramp-
ton, Ontario, Canada, was
charged with trafficking in ex-
cess of 25 pounds of marijua-
na, a first-degree felony, ac-
cording to FDA. He' was
booked into the .Nassau Coun-
ty Jail.
The weekend incidents cap
a busy two years at the De-
partment of Agriculture and
Consumer Services' 22 Inter-
diction Stations, where dur-
ing that period OALE offi-
cers have recovered an esti-
mated $13 million in nar-
cotics, stolen goods and con-
traband at the locations, in-
cluding $7 million cocaine
seizures, $600,000 in stolen
medicines, 60 large-screen-
televisions and a truckload of
pilfered computer chassis.
Much of this was found in
Suwannee County at the 1-10
station.

Organization (LOCO) over the
summer to help victims of Ka-
trina and local residents in
need. When the needs, had
been met, there were tons of
clothing and other articles left
over so the yard sale idea be-
came a reality with the assis-
tance of the building's owners.
By 7:30 a.m. last Saturday;
about 35 people were in line
awaiting the doors opening to
begin their shopping. By the
time the day was over, the
event had been deemed a huge
success but .still, there were
many items of clothing left and
still more yard sale items were
expected this week. So, once
again, the LOCO >.ard sAle ill

be held from 7:30 a.m. until
3:30 p.m. this Saturday. If you
are looking for a bargain with,
all items at just 50 cents each,
this is your yard sale.
The .wrestling boosters will
again provide refreshments
with .hot dogs, hamburgers
and soft drinks available in the
parking lot. The boosters need
the money for trips and en-
courage your stopping by and
doing business with them
also. Even if you don't want to
attend the,yard sale, come by
and have lunch with the boost-
ers to help local youngsters.
Organizers say many, many
people assisted in the fund-
raiser, jocLuding dithe LOFD,


Suwannee County Sheriffs
Office, building owners and
many others too numerous to
name, including :those who
donated items for the sale. A
big thank you goes to one and
all who helped especially the
LOFD fire fighters who stood
by all day for assistance.
Help a fellow resident or
perhaps a traveler who falls on
hard times; attend the yard
sale Dec. 17 at the old Kmart

from Publix. You'll be glad
you did.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

One day at a time Christmas


Dear Editor:

The Christmas season is
like no other season in histo-
ry. It is observed around the
world by young and old, rich
and poor, the mighty and the
meek, saint and sinner. It
crosses racial lines and na-
tional boundaries. It is a sea-
son for all ... Christmas is a
special time-when families
come together, reaffirming
well-loved customs and fun-
damental beliefs. It is a joy-
ful time for the little chil-
dren, rich with make-believe
and laughter, and for their
elders, a time of joy, of
memories past and hope for
things to come. Yes, Christ-
mas, is all of this and more,
a time of gratitude, compas-
sion, hope and faith.
Did you ever stop to ask
what it would be like if there
had never been a Christmas?
Each Christmas season we
are reminded once again of
the hope that entered history
with glad tidings of Bethle-
hem. From the Gospel of
Luke, we hear again of the
"Heavenly host praising
God and sayhiig,'-Glory to
God in the highest, and
peace on earth to men of
good will ..."
Christmas is the feast day
of the birth of the
Christchild. He came into'
the world to save men from
their sins, to teach them to
love their neighbor, and to
reveal to them a way of life.
that leads to eternal happi-
ness.
In ways of its own, Christ-
mas fills our hearts with sen-
timents of peace *on earth
and good will toward men,
sentiments especially need-
ed today.
The abiding spirit of
Christmas season comes to
us in many ways, in the joy-
ous eyes of the little child, in
the music of the Yuletide, in
extending a helping hand to
those less fortunate and in
all the enduring traditions
that reflect the goodness of


its appeal to the goodness of
man. The spirit of Christmas
offers eternal hope, for it
-will come again and again
until that time when all
mankind will understand
that only through love of
God and man can there be
peace and good will on
earth.
The spirit of Christmas is
expressed in love and
thoughtfulness to others. It
is by bringing happiness into
the lives of, others that our
own happiness is increased,
thus affirming through the
practice of-doing good that it
is really more blessed to
give than to receive. The
spirit of Christmas is doing
more than the law requires,
such as, walking that extra
mile, forgiving another's
mistake not just once but
many times. The spirit of
Christmas emphasizes the
life of love, not the love of
life. Let our light shine
through this Christmas sea-
son through our love of man
by radiating good will, good
cheer and good works.
Merry Christmas to you
and yours,
Jack Briggs

Dear Editor:
My husband and I moved
to Live Oak just one year
and two days ago. We really
love the atmosphere bere,
especially the friendliness of
the people.
I want to compliment the
Suwannee Democrat on .the
wonderful article by Pam
Campbell in -the Dec. 1 is-
sue, "GOOD NEWS:
CHRISTmas." It was well
done and very uplifting, es-.
pecially now with so. many
politicaly correct" people
trying to take Christ out of
CHRISTmas and that is im-
possible, to say the least.
THANK YOU AGAIN AND
KEEP UP. THE GOOD
WORK.
JESUS IS THE REASON
FOR THE SEASON.
Doris Conklin

Florida Park Service
is first two-time
winner of the Gold
Medal Award
Governor Jeb Bush and
the Florida Cabinet honored
Florida's award-winning
state parks recently with a
resolution for receiving the
Gold Medal from the Na-
tional Recreation and Parks
Association. The Gold
Medal, a second for Flori-'
da's park system, was pre-
sented at the 2005 National
Recreation and Park Associ-
ation Congress and Exposi-
tion to the nation's best park
service.'
"Florida's State Parks are
a portal to the State's un-
touched natural, recreation-
al and historical resources,"
said Florida Department of
Envir6nmrenal Protection
Secretary Colleen M.
Castille. "The State com-
mends the dedicated volun-
teers and professional staff
that provide an enjoyable
experience for millions of
visitors annually."
The Florida Park Service,.
managed under the Florida
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection, was a finalist
in the National Recreation
and Parks Association Gold
Medal award in 1997, and
won "the Gold Medal in
1999.-This year, the Florida
Park Service's first opportu-
nity to reapply since 1999,
is the: only time a state
agency has won the Gold
Medal twice. Florida com-
peted with state park sys-
tems from Missouri, North
Carolina and Tennessee for
the award.
"This award represents
the dedication of the park
rangers and management
staff who are the foundation
of this prestigious award,"
said Florida State Parks Di-
rector Mike Bullock. "Flori-
da's state parks protect nat-
ural Florida land and
wildlife, and provide open
space and recreational activ-
ities for families to enjoy."
Florida's state park sys-
tem is one of the largest in
the country with 159 parks
spanning more than 723,000
acres and 100 miles of
sandy white beach. From

Growing number of Floridians turn to Internet librarians


A growing number of
Floridians are finding au-
thoritative, reliable answers
to their questions on-line us-
ing a free reference service,
Ask a Librarian. The service
extends" the reach of tradi-
tional library reference ser-
vices ,by. linking Internet
users to live, one-on-one li-
brarian assistance. Ask a Li-
brarian features live chat
and the ability .to navigate
the web together. Usage of
the service is rapidly in-
creasing, topping 2,000 ses-


sions each month and grow-
ing.
"Ask a Librarian is a great
service for anyone who has a
question or who needs help
finding information on the
Web," notes Vince Mariner,
the service's Statewide Co-
ordinator. "There is no cost
to use the service, and it's
staffed by librarians who are
skilled in finding informa-
tion. Students, small busi-
ness owners, seniors, home
schoolers, teachers, anyone
can benefit from this invalu-


able resource."
Librarians from 88 public,
academic and special li-
braries throughout Florida
are available for live chat at
www.askalibrarian~org be-
tween 10 a.m. and 10 p.m.,
Sunday through Friday, and
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Satur-
day. Without ever leaving
their homes, schools or of-
fices, Floridians with Inter-
net access can ask a librarian
almost any question imagin-
able. In addition to live chat,
users can submit questions


via e-mail 24 hours a day,
seven days a week.
Ask a Librarian is part of
the Florida Electronic Li-
brary, which is a collection
of free databases and live
reference services available
to all Florida residents. Ask
a Librarian is a collaborative
service jointly administered
by the College Center for Li-
brary Automation (CCLA)
and the Tampa Bay Library
Consortium (TBLC). It is
funded through a Library
Services and Technology


Act (LSTA) grant adminis-
tered by the Florida Depart-
ment of State Division of Li-
brary and Information Ser-
vices.

would take notes from con-
cerned raw milk advocates
and consumers at the meeting
to take back to the capitol.
Facilitating the meeting was
Lake City Community Col-
lege Vice President Charles
Carroll. Representatives of the
Agriculture Department Chief
of Bureau of Compliance
Monitoring Dale Dubberly
and Deputy Commissioner of
Food Safety Dr. Joanne
Brown were present. Also pre-


sent were a room full of raw
milk advocates and consumers
coming as far away as Califor-
nia to speak at the meeting.
Organic Pastures Dairy
Company owner and operator
Mark McAfee who came from
California to support the issue
made a strong distinction be-
tween the safety of raw cow's
milk grown in a conventional
environment and milk grown
in an all-natural environment.
McAfee said raw milk from
a conventional dairy system
where cows are fed antibi-


otics, hormones, piles of ma-
nure and lots of grain contains
pathogens and can be unsafe.
"Unnatural production prac-
tices create unnatural milk;
this is not the milk we are
talking about today," he said.
"We are talking about natural-
ly produced raw milk from an
organic farm or pasture-
grazed natural facility."
"I think data shows that nat-
urally grown raw milk is safer
than pasteurized milk," he
said after quoting findings-
from a study done at DSK

labs, which found that listeria,
E. coli and salmonella will not
grow in naturally produced
raw milk.
"The told story of milk is
unnatural produced raw milk
has made many people sick
and pasteurization makes
'filthy milk safe," he said. "The
untold story of milk is the raw
milk that the Mayo clinic used
to cure many diseases and was
from a clean and green envi-
ronment."
Stoltzfoos said his farm has
never had any complaints with
people claiming to be sick-
ened but rather many people
have claimed health benefits
from the milk.
"We feel there should be an
exemption for the small
farmer to milk a few cows and
share the milk with people
who want it," Stoltzfoos, said.
"There should be freedom of
choice for the consumer to be
allowed to drink the milk they
choose."
Many other farmers and raw
milk consumers spoke giving
the Agriculture Department a
message that they are tired of
being ignored and that the is-
sue will not go away. Many
.consumers voiced claims of
raw milk curing or improving
allergies, arthritis, fibromyal-
gia and other.ailments as well
as improving the immune sys-

temn.
Raw milk consumer and
registered nurse Diane Land,
who traveled from St. Peters-
burg to speak on the issue, said
she has. seen an improvement
in the health of her family as a
result of the milk.
"As a registered nurse I have
the opportunity to understand
i lot more about bacteria than
the average lay person," she
said. "Before drinking my first
glass of rawmilk three years
ago I researched and discov-
ered if cows are outside eating
grass, especially fast-growing
green grass, it will produce
healthy and safe raw milk that
is nutritionally dense." .
Land said when listeria is
found in raw milk from grass
fed to cows the other helpful

bacteria will destroy the listria.
Land said people who drink
raw milk will only do so after
asking the farmer these ques-
tions: Is the cow grass fed?
How do you milk? How do
you bottle? What do you sup-,
plement your cows with?
Where do you get your feed?
"As raw ,milk drinkers we
are active and informed con-
sumers who want the best for
our families,", she said, asking
the Department to.not think of
families like hers as criminals*
who are forced to buy raw
milk labeled as pet food.
Raw milk consumer Julie
Abbot said due to our fast-
paced lives food has been
processed and denatured re-
sulting in a large rise in health.

concerns and health problems.
"There is a growing number
of people who will only con-
tinue to grow in knowledge
about the issue," she said.
"There's a large number of
health benefits to eating nutri-
ent dense foods that people are
experiencing first hand."
Abbot showed a picture of
her twin niece and nephew
who were born prematurely
who she says could not stom-
ach any type of food the hospi-
tal tried to give them.
"They were literally starv-
ing," she said. "After getting
farm fresh milk to make for-
mula, the children's' systems
responded and they left the
hospital healthy."
"I will provide myself and
my family with nutrient .dense
food no matter what," she said.
"There isn't any way I'm going
to allow anyone to take my
right to do that away from
me."
Many other concerned peo-
ple spoke, as well as farmers
who explained their farming,
practices. Among them was lo-
cal farmer Bubba Kurtz who
uses a low temperature pas-
teurized system. He said his
cows' diet is 90 percent grass
and clover and 10 percent sup-
plementation.
Carroll asked Kurtz how he
transports the milk to people.
Kurtz said he delivers locally.
"I would like to conduct. my
tfarming practices a little dif-
ferentlN. but this is the closest I
can get, to producing raw- milk
legally," Kurtz said.
Dubberly asked farmers
about the difference between
organic and natural.
"Organic means you pay an
inspector, to 'come in and in-,
spect the facility, and the facil-
ity is under rules about having
no fertilization," Kurtz said.
"Natural means the way nature
intended. ,The difference .is,
money and power."
"Rawy. organic and natural
milk can be different, it sounds
like," Stansel said. "So Ithink
the issue at hand is whether the
milk is pasteurized or not pas-
teurized."
Bought up was the issue
about raw milk being safe or,
unsafe depending on farm
practices.
"There's a difference be-
tween customers who, have a
relationship with their farmer
and know his practices and
those who don't," said Pete
Kennedy, an attorney repre-
senting Stoltzfoos. "If raw
milk is made legal in Florida,
people must then become in-
spectors for themselves."
Both representatives from
the Agriculture Department
sat silent through the presen-
tations, saying only at the
end they appreciated each
comment and would take
them to the. commissioner
for review.
Stansel said they did not
know yet whether legislation
would have to change to make
raw milk legal to local con-
sumers.
"If legislation is involved, it
will take time," he said. "In the
meantime, you can get on
www.mnyflorida.com and get
in contact with your legislators
to.express your concerns."
Brown commented later say-
ing they would be in touch with
Stansel on the status of the is-
sue. She said it might be the
first of the year until Stansel
hears from the Department.

O'Nei

Editor's note: Jim O'Neal
is a Suwannee County resi-
dent who is chief of Station
33 volunteer fire group,
serves on the Suwannee
County Fire Board and is a
community worker. He's
currently in New Orleans
working for the govern-
ment helping to get that
area ready for its residents
to return.
I wish I had time to write each
and everyone of you and wish
you all a happy holiday but
unfortunately one e-mail to
all of you will have to suf-
fice. It is a bit hard being here
in New Orleans during the
holidays not being close to
family and friends but consid-
ering that there are many oth-
ers here who will not be hav-
ing dinner with their loved
ones I guess I can tough it
out. The people here have
been very nice and many of
our firefighters were invited
to local peoples homes for
Thanksgiving dinner. Myself
and seven or so more fire-
fighters were asked by one of
the hotel staff if we would
come and have .dinner with
her anid her family in Gretna,
just over the Mississippi Riv-


I repo
er, and we readily agreed.
Their hospitality was over-
whelming. And the food was
out of this world.
Several other groups of
firefighters got together and
put on meals in order that
there were none of us who did
not have the opportunity to
have a meal with someone to-
day. There is nothing worse
than spending the holidays
alone. And, if all else failed,
the chow line at the local
"tent city" put out a Thanks-
giving spread as well.. Some
of the firefighters had the op-
portunity to go home for a
week or so for Thanksgiving
and others will be rotating out
for Christmas. I will be going
home to .Suwannee
County for several days either
. the second or third week in
December but must be back
before Christmas. Myself and!
some of the "older" firefight-
ers have agreed that the
younger guys and those with
young children need to go
home'to be with their fami-
lies. .But, I'll be celebrating
the beginning of a New Year
here in New Orleans with my
wife Rena and several friends.
I'm sorry the updates have
been lacking but there has
been so little time to write of


rt

our experiences here. Four-
teen of our firefighters, in-
cluding myself, have been de-
tached from Task Force 83
and assigned to the Associate
Field Office (AFO) as inspec-
tors. Our primary mission is
to ensure that temporary
housing set up for returning
families is set up properly,
power, water, sewer, etc, and
that families are placed in a
timely manner. Myself, my
son Jimbo and several other
firefighters are working the
Plaquemines Parish area. If
you look at a map of
Louisiana and look directly
south of New Orleans you
will see what appears to be
fingers sticking out into the
Gulf of Mexico. THATS
'WHERE. WE ARE!!!! Plus
the entire Parish is split down
the center by the Mississippi
River. Needless to say, these
folks got a lot of water during
both Katrina and Rita. As
they, say here in, Louisiana,
there is beau coups damage
everywhere. I'mi not sure
how long we are going to be
here but there is a possibility
that I might be spending next
Thanksgiving here as well.
God Bless

BOYS RANCH RESIDENTS ARE GUESTS OF ALHAMBRA THEATRE: A group of young men from Ihe
Boys Ranch recently had an opportunity see Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carole due to the gen-
erosity of Jack and Todd Booth of the Alhambra Dinner theatre in Jacksonville. This holiday favorite
has been an Alhambra Christmas tradition for over twenty years.- This production, based on the
Charles-Dickens classic story, brings to life one of literature's most famous penny-pinchers, Ebenez-
er Scrooge. Fun for the entire family, A Christmas Carole is a memorable musical voyage to Vict0-
rian England to find out how a miserly skinflint discovers the true meaning ot Christmas in a most
unusual way. A Christmas Carole will be playing through Dec. 24. Photo: Submitted in Jacksonville


'Twas the night
TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS, HE LIVED ALL ALONE,
IN A ONE BEDROOM HOUSE MADE OF PLASTER AND STONE.

I HAD COME DOWN THE CHIMNEY WITH PRESENTS TO GIVE,
AND TO SEE JUST WHO IN THIS HOME DID LIVE.

I LOOKED ALL ABOUT, A STRANGE SIGHT I DID SEE,
NO TINSEL, NO PRESENTS, NOT EVEN A TREE.

NO STOCKING BY MANTLE, JUST BOOTS FILLED WITH SAND,
ON THE WALL HUNG PICTURES OF FAR DISTANT LANDS.

WITH MEDALS AND BADGES, AWARDS OF ALL KINDS,
A SOBER THOUGHT CAME THROUGH MY MIND.

FOR THIS HOUSE WAS DIFFERENT, IT WAS DARK AND DREARY,
FOUND THE HOME OF A SOLDIER, ONCE I COULD SEE CLEARLY

THE SOLDIER LAY SLEEPING, SILENT, ALONE,
CURLED UP ON THE FLOOR IN THIS ONE BEDROOM HOME.

THE FACE WAS SO GENTLE, THE ROOM IN SUCH DISORDER,
NOT HOW I PICTURED A UNITED STATES SOLDIER.

WAS THIS THE HERO OF WHOM I'D JUST READ?
CURLED UP ON A PONCHO, THE FLOOR FOR A BED?

REALIZED THE FAMILIES THAT I SAW THIS NIGHT,
OWED THEIR LIVES TO THESE SOLDIERS WHO WERE WILLING TO FIGHT.

SOON ROUND THE WORLD, THE CHILDREN WOULD PLAY,
AND GROWNUPS WOULD CELEBRATE A BRIGHT CHRISTMAS DAY

THEY ALL ENJOYED FREEDOM EACH MONTH OF THE YEAR,
BECAUSE OF THE SOLDIERS, LIKE THE ONE LYING HERE.

I COULDN'T HELP WONDER HOW MANY LAY ALONE,
ON A COLD CHRISTMAS EVE IN A LAND FAR FROM HOME.

THE VERY THOUGHT BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYE,
I DROPPED TO MY KNEES AND STARTED TO CRY.

THE SOLDIER AWAKENED AND I HEARD A ROUGH VOICE,
SANTA DON'T CRY, THIS LIFE IS MY CHOICE;

I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM, I DON'T ASK FOR MORE,
MY LIFE IS MY GOD, MY COUNTRY, MY CORPS.

THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER AND DRIFTED TO SLEEP,
I COULDN'T CONTROL IT, I CONTINUED TO WEEP.

I KEPT WATCH FOR HOURS, SO SILENT AND STILL
AND WE BOTH SHIVERED FROM THE COLD NIGHT'S CHILL.

I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE ON THAT COLD, DARK, NIGHT,
THIS GUARDIAN OF HONOR SO WILLING TO FIGHT.

THEN THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER, WITH A VOICE SOFT AND PURE,
WHISPERED, "CARRY ON SANTA, IT'S CHRISTMAS DAY, ALL IS SECURE."

ONE LOOK AT MY WATCH, AND I KNEW HE WAS RIGHT.
Ei MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIEND, AND TO ALLAGOOD NIGHT,,'"

This poem was written by a Marine stationed in Okinawa, Japan.

First Step to the
Future: Don't. Drop Out of High
School

When I start thinking about new topics
for this column, I sometimes take it for
granted that students will finish high
school. Then I run across information that
reminds me that far too many teens drop
out of high school before earning a diplo-
ma.
The U.S. made steady gains in high
school graduation rates until about 20
years ago. Now we're losing ground.
Around three in ten high school students
will drop out before graduation, accord-
ing to research based on data from the.
National Center for Education Statistics:
A recent report from the Organization
for Cooperation and Development says
the U.S. is now ninth among industrial-
ized nations in the proportion of young
adults (25-34 years old) with a high
school diploma. Korea, Norway, The Slo-
vak Republic, Japan, The Czech Repub-
lic, Sweden, Canada and Finland are all
graduating more of their young people


from high school than does the United
States.
It is important that we, as parents and as
citizens, figure out how to:
keep more students in school,
graduate more students from high
school, and prepare every student for
further training or education beyond high
school.
We need to encourage and support ef-
forts at the national, state and community
levels. To get ideas of what your schools
can do, read "Getting Serious About High
School Graduation", a new report from
the Southern Regional Education Board.
(You can download the report free from
their website at www.sreb.org.)
The reasons students drop out are var-
ied and often complex. The biggest hur-
dle seems to be the ninth grade. More stu-
dents fail the ninth grade than any other
grade. Students who don't develop strong
academic, study and social skills in the
earlier grades are often overwhelmed by
ninth grade.
And many times these students are at
or near the age where they're no longer
required to attend school.
There are also things that each of us can
do on a personal level. I know a young


man who dropped out of high school sev-
eral years ago after a serious accident
caused him to fall behind in his studies. I
truly regret not stepping forward and do-
ing more to encourage him and to help
him stay in school. I could have done
more.
What can you do to help students stay
in school? If you have a child or know a
young person who is at risk of dropping
out, talk to him. Tell him how important it
is to stay in school. And offer to help. If
you don't personally know a-student in
need, volunteer. Middle schools and alter-
native high schools are full of students
who are at risk of dropping out and these
schools desperately need volunteers.
Consider the following things you might
do:
Complete non-teaching classroom
tasks, so teachers can spend more
individual time with students.
Baby-sit for young mothers,, so they
have uninterrupted time to study.
Tutor individual students.
Get a "reading buddy," a teenager
with whom you can read and discuss
books. Several of my co-workers at
ACT do this.
Let a student shadow you in your job,


and talk to her
about high
school gradua-
tion being the .
first step to en-
tering your ca-
reer. .
Hire a "4
young person
to work for e
you; schedule
work* hours
around school-
work and keep Rose Rennekamp
tabs on how
things are going in school.
Every adult in this country has a role to
play in solving our dropout problem.
Take time to let a young person know that
the first step to his or her future is to earn
a high school diploma.

"Older than dirt!" "Nine
days older than kerosene!"
How many times have you
heard these two expressions,
especially when used in refer-
ence to someone's age? But
have you ever wondered.just
how old older than dirt really
is? Or, what someone who is
"nine days. older than
kerosene" really looks like? If
ever there was. anyone who'
would have a reasonable un-
derstanding of either it would
definitely have to be the Bibli-


cal patriarch, Methuselah ...
because, according to chapter
5, verse 27, of the book of Gen-
esis, Methuselah lived to 'be
969 years old: That is 969
birthdays ... how would you
like to try to blow out the can-
dles on one of his cakes?
I'm sure my friend, Linda
Gaylord, who recently cele-
brated her birthday on Tuesday,
Dec: 6, had no trouble blowing
out the candles on the birthday
cake she won from radio's 98.1
and the Live Oak Dairy Queen.


I told her I was going to let
everyone in the outback know
that she had recently celebrated
another birthday. When I asked
her how many years young she
was, she said, "Just tell them
I'm older than dirt." So, here's a
happy birthday greeting to my
"older than dirt" friend, though
I believe Methuselah has her
beat by a few centuries. I will
say this in her defense ... she
definitely does not look nine
days older than kerosene. Psssst
... I won't tell if ya'll won't tell
... but rumor has it that 1941
was a very good year to be
born, especially for those who
are "older than dirt."
The Wellborn Community
Association's (WCA) pancake
breakfast was held Saturday,
Dec. 3. Not being much of an
early bird: I-:didn't make the
scene until a couple of hours
past the WCA's 7 a.m. starting
time. But when I did arrive I got


a chance to visit with lots of old
friends and to meet some new
ones. The Gaylord and Fralick
families of Wellborn and the
Sutton family. of Fort Myers
took up the better part of two
tables. They were hla\ ing a
fantabulous gathering, so when
I was given the opportunity to
join them, I managed to over-
come my usual shyness and eni-
joy ed the moment.
This large extended family
became one when Nikki Fral-
ick, daughter of Ted and Goldie
Marie Gaylord Fralick, married
Anthony Sutton, son of Tony
and Susie Sutton. Nikki and
Anthony meet while both were
students at Flagler College in
Saint Augustine. The 'couple
were married in Saint Augus-
tine on Jan. 22, 2005. They
now reside in Jacksonville,
where Nikki is an accountant


for Warner Brothers Television
Station and Anthony is a pro-

MSC's Mulch Selection Guide
This mulch selection guide %was developed b\ the members of the Mulch and Soil Council to
assist consumers in selecting the proper mulch product for your intended use. In addition to the
guidelines shown on the selection guide table, consumers are advised to consider the following
additional criteria for product use:
Depth of Application: For most outdoor application purposes (especially 'eed control and
moisture conservation) mulch products should be applied at a depth of 2 to 4 inches.
Bed Preparation: Proper preparation of the planting area before using mulch products is
highly recommended.
A.) Soil Conditioner: Remove grass and weeds from the bed surface. Loosen the soil with a
shovel or spade to a depth of 6 to 8 inches. Coer the bed with 4 to 6 inches of aged, shredded
mulch and till into the sod thoroughly
B.) Weed Control: Remove grass and weeds.from the bed surface. Cover the bed with 2 to
4 inches of shredded mulch. If larger decorative mulch \\ill be applied o\ er the shredded mulch,
reduce the shredded mulch base to I to 3 inches.
Avoid Excessive Mulch Buildup: Remulching beds over several years may raise the bed
level too high for shrubs and perennials. When bed depth rises aboe the base of shrubs, re-
move 2 to 3 inches of the underlying mulch material and save it for other planting uses. The
humus created by decomposing bark mulch is an excellent planting medium for pots and
planters.
Nitrogen Adjustment: Mulches may tie up nitrogen as they decompose. This is a normal
process and may be easily compensated for by gently working a. specially formulated fertilizer
(such- as-a 2-1-1 ratio like.-16-i24l-8- ~ -.2 r-'2,0441n'to'th'e soil beforemtnuchnig-Fr
tilizer application rates depend on the type of mulch used. After applying fertilizer and
mulching, follow recommended fertilizer programs to maintain good plant growth.

4 8 Pounds 2.5 5.0 Pounds 1.4 2.8 Pounds
Hardwood mulch Cypress mulches Pine nuggets
Pine mulch Pine mini-nuggets

Look for low wood Acontent: Bark decomposes slower than wood, maintains its color longer, and
presents a unifonn product appearance. When selecting your bark mulch products, look for quality
materials containing less %wood content.

Today I am taking a back
seat to a much higher pow-
er as I share this special
email I received this week:
Dear loved ones,
As you will know, we are
getting closer to my birth-
'day. Every year there is a
celebration in my honor and
I think that this year the cel-
ebration will be repeated..
During this time there are
many. people shopping for
gifts, there are many radio
announcements, TV com-
mercials, and in every part
-of the world everyone is
talking that my birthday is
getting closer and closer.
It is really very nice to
know, that at least once a
year, some people think of
me. As. you know, the cele-
bration of my birthday be-
gan many years ago. At first
people seemed to under-
stand and be thankful of all
that I did for them,, but in
these times, no one seems to
know the reason for the cel-
ebration. Family and friends
get together and have a lot
of fun, but they don't know
the meaning, of the celebra-
tion.
I remember that last year
there was a great feast in my
honor. The dinner table was
full of delicious foods, pas-
tries, fruits, assorted nuts
and chocolates. The decora-
tions were exquisite and
there were many, many
beautifully wrapped gifts.


But, do you want to know
something? I wasn't invit-
ed. I was the guest of honor
and they didn't remember to
send me an invitation. The
party was for me, but when
that great day came, I was
left outside, they closed the
door in my face .... and I
wanted to be with them and
share their table.
In truth, that didn't sur-
prise me because in the last
few years' all close their
doors to me. Since I wasn't
invited, I decided to enter
the party without making
any noise. I went in and
stood in a-corner. They were
all drinking; there were
some who were drunk and
telling jokes and laughing at
everything. They were hav-
ing a grand time. To top it
all, this big man all dressed
in red wearing a long white
beard entered the room
yelling Ho-Ho-Ho! He
seemed drunk. He sat on the
sofa and all the children ran
to him, saying: "Santa
Claus, Santa Claus" .. as if
the party were in his honor!
At midnight all the people
began to hug each other; I
extended my arms waiting
for someone to hug me and
... do you know ... no one
hugged me. Suddenly they
all began to share gifts.
They opened them one by
one with great expectation.
When all had been opened, I
looked to see if,


maybe,there was one for
me.
What would you feel if on
your birthday everybody
shared gifts and you did not
get one? I then understood
that I was unwanted at that
party and quietly left.
Every year it gets worse.
People only remember the
gifts, the parties, to eat and
drink and nobody remem-
bers me. I would like it this
Christmas if you would al-
low me to enter into your
life. I would like it if you
would recognize the fact
that almost 2,000 years ago
I came to this world to give
my life for you on the cross
to save you. Today, I only
want you to believe this
with all your heart.
I want to share something
with you. As many didn't in-
vite me to their party, I will
have my own celebration, a
grandiose party that no one
has ever imagined, a spec-
tacular party. I'm still mak-
ing the final arrangements.
Today I am sending out
many invitations and there
is an invitation for you. I
want to know if you wish to
attend and I will make a
reservation for you and
write your name with gold-
en letters in my great guest
book. Only those on the-
guest list will be invited to
the party. Those who don't
answer the invitation will
be left outside.
Be prepared because
when all is ready, you will
be part of my great party.

See you soon.
I Love you!
Jesus

P.S.
Please share this message
with your loved ones before
Christmas.

Cell phone users are being asked to put
the acronym ICE, an abbreviation for "in
case of emergency." before the names of
-pebple-they want to be contacted on their
behalf in an emergency. The idea %was de-
veloped by a British paramedic, and 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 %% ith ,our family in an emergency.

Treatment for Iron Deficiency Anemia
Anemias are a group of disorders that are characterized by a reduction in the
blood's ability to carry oxygen..Iron deficiency anemia is just one type. It can
be caused by malnutrition, hookworms, and diets with limited meat, fresh
fruit, or fresh vegetables. This type of anemia often has no symptoms and is
best diagnosed by a blood test done at a physician's office.
The treatment for iron deficiency anemia includes iron supplementation
with diet and iron preparations. There are multiple iron supplement products
available with and without a prescription. Iron supplements come in several
forms that include: ferrous sulfate, ferrous gluconate, ferrous fimnarate, and
polysacaride iron complex. The differences in these formulations ,rest in how
much iron can be absorbed from the product. To get the most iron from any
iron supplement, use a non-sustained release product, take the supplement
about and hour before meals, and do not use a combination product such as
antacids. Iron products are sometimes difficult to tolerate and can cause
stomach upset. To increase tolerability, take the supplement in 2-3 divided
doses daily and take with food if given approval by a physician. Report any
difficulties in tolerability or for questions about your iron supplement,
consult your pharmacist. 222603-F


An ICE entry could be "ICE Ann," or
"ICE Mom." ICE 1, ICE 2 etc.
This one simple act could sa-e para-
medics, police and firefighters valuable
time trying to figure out which name-in a
cell phone to call if you are unable to com-
municate \ ith them.
Do it today, not for yourself, but for
your family who would want to know if
you are hurt or too ill to communicate per-
sonally.

through the auction contribute
toward this year's annual com-

round; so local residents and
businesses are encouraged to
keep this annual event in mind
when they have items to con-

night Suwannee took the short
trip north across the river to
face Hamilton County and
again ended the game early
with an 8-0 victory.
Suwannee had little trouble
with Bradford as the Lady
Dogs tallied 12 shots on goal
and scored 11 times. The mer-
cy rule ends the game when
one team has an eight-goal ad-
vantage, but the, entire first half
must be played. Kelsey
Bowen scored three goals and
had one assist, Ashley Harris
scored two with two assists,
and Katie Prevatt and Cortney
Ross both added two goals
each. Amanda Mendez and
Alicia Cash each scored a
goal, Blair Clayton had two as-
sists and Nicki Johnson had
one.
The Lady Dogs knew they
were in for a fight against Mid-
dleburg, a team they beat 6-1
the week before, when the
Lady Mustangs marked both
forwards and seemed deter-
mined to keep the score low.
Kelsey Bowen was able. to get
Suwannee on the board 15
minutes into the game when


Josh


she fired a 25-yard shot that
went through the keepers,
hands and into the goal. That
would be the only score of the
match as both defenses domi-
nated, limiting their opponent
to only a couple of shots for
the remainder of the game.
Middleburg won two comer
kicks with less than one
minute in the game, but the
tenacious Suwannee defense
turned both dangerous kicks
away and secured their third
district win.
The match against Hamilton
County in Jasper proved to be
tougher than the 8-0 score
would indicate. The Lady Tro-
jans have improved consider-
ably this season and never
gave up, playing a swarming,
physical defense that made it
difficult for Suwannee to pos-
sess the ball for any length of
time. Ashley Harris scored
three goals in the first half,
with assists from Tori Wood,
Katie Prevatt and Mary Bad-
gerow, and she assisted Aman-'
da Mendez on the fourth goal
of the first half, giving Suwan-
nee a 4-0 lead at half-time.
In the second half Kelsey
Bowen scored an unassisted


,goal and had an assist on one
of Katie Prevatt's two goals,
the other assist coming, from
Prevatt's sister, Jennifer. Mon-
ica Todd scored the final goal
of the match with 13 minutes
left on the clock with Blair
Clayton getting the assist.
Coach Kathy Wood praised
her. defense for the three
shutout wins. "They are start-
ing to come together as a unit,
plus our bench is getting
stronger each game. Our
keepers, Alicia Cash and Erica
Sparks, are both playing well,
and our three freshmen de-
fenders, Kelsey Shirah, Nic-
hole Williams and Dee Sardina
have been remarkable."
Coach Wood also noted that
Brook Ross and Amanda
Mendez have also been strong
contributors on defense.
Suwannee's next home
match will be on Monday,
Dec. 12, ,when the Taylor
County Lady Bulldogs come
to town. Taylor currently has
an 8-1 record and is always a
fierce opponent, so come on.

|ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: What are sealants?
A: A sealant is a liquid plastic applied to a
tooth to protect it against decay. The
precaution is often used on molars, the
back teeth that bear the brunt of the work
of chewing. The sealant is applied to the
occlusal, or chewing, surface of the tooth.
Pits and grooves can develop in these
teeth, as they can in .all teeth, and that's
where cavities can begin. Generally,
though, if a person has made it into his or
her early 20's without cavities having
developed in those pits and grooves,
they're not likely to develop cavities after
that point. The procedure for applying a
sealant is simple, safe and painless, calling
for no drills or needles. The dentist dries
the tooth and then etches the surface to be
sealed with a milk acid that puts
microscopic ridges on the tooth. The
dentist then puts the liquid plastic over the
area and it seeps into the etched surface.
Some sealants harden by themselves in
less than a minute. The sealant effectively
blocks bacteria from entering the tooth.
Talk with your dentist about whether
sealants are right for you or your family?

Recognizing the danger presented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, troopers will concentrate their efforts on
vehicles being operated with defects such as bad brakes, worn
tires and defective lighting equipment. In addition, attention
will be directed to drivers who would violate the driver license
laws of Florida. The Patrol has found these checkpoints to be
an effective means of enforcing the equipment and driver's li-
cense laws of Florida while ensuring the protection of all mo-
torists.

For aging adults, depression does

not need to be part of the picture
Depression does not go hand in hand with aging. In fact, older adults who are able to
stay engaged in day-to-day living and find simple joys to fill their days can go a long way
toward avoiding the debilitating effects of depression.
As Dr. Kathie Bates, associate professor of psychology at Argosy University/Tampa
explains, "Positive activities and experiences for older adults should be a part of each day,
and they can be as simple as enjoying watching birds outside the window, to more
effortful pastimes such as finishing a craft or household project." The key, says Bates, is to
accomplish small tasks successfully and put aside more difficult ones until they no longer
seem so challenging.
The best way to find out what makes an older adult happy is to be a good listener.
"Listening to the person's concerns and providing support rather than advice or
ultimatums generally has a more positive influence," she says.
According to Bates, listening includes identifying what an older adult is concerned
about as well as what they would like to be doing to feel better, rather than imposing a
family member's ideas and values on the person. For example, an individual who has led a
rather-solitary life is more likely
.i. t respond to an'offer to pick up
a book on tape for them from
Sthie library than an offer to take

OF Ai< a lo-;, of roles (for example,
bei the Mom or Dad), loved
S" U Ones and sometimes physical
A.. c.,1pabilities, and with these
I losses t-here is often
.ild urderstandable sadness. But,
S.' a,'. Dr Lynn Horne-Moyer,
: = '" :" director of clinical training and
S.- a.;ssociiate professor at Argosy
University/Atlanta, "most older
adults adjust to these difficulties relatively quickly." .
When older adults do become depressed, they often express it differently than younger
adults. They may complain of fatigue or lack of interest in usual activities rather than
displaying tearfulness or crying. For these reasons, depression is often under-diagnosed
because its symptoms can overlap with those of other illnesses that become more common
in late life. -
The most common signs of more serious depression, according to Home-Moyer, are,
sadness, irritability, hopelessness, worthlessness, dropping activities, pessimism or a.
preoccupation with death. All of these, she explains, should be treated very seriously and
aggressively, with a mental health professional contacted immediately.
Unfortunately\. manr older adults feel that there is a stigma attached to seeking help --
Sev\enithrough support groups. According to Bares, mentaLlJealih services designed solely_
for older adults are rare, which may further discouile them froni seeking help. For mild
levels of depression, psychotherapy, support groups, or both together, can help in avoiding
the need for medication. Once the depression symptoms reach a severe le\ el medication is
often needed .
There is some research to suggest, Bates adds, that the way in which older adults cope
with the challenges of aging may be best predictor of how susceptible they will be to.
depression. Individuals who stay flexible and adapt to their changing needs fare better. In
fact, positive planning for retirement, which includes activities and interests to focus on,
as well as staying an active and involved member of the community, can be very
beneficial to healthy aging.
With the right support systems in place, most older adults can find considerable joy and
satisfaction in this new stage of life. Pere are several expert recommendations for helping
older adults live happier, healthier lives:
Family connections are most important for most adults, including a spouse, and
children and- siblings. Extended family plays a more vital role in minority families, with
more help provided by elders and for elders within the family.
Physical activity/exercise has been shown to be helpful in combating depression for
those who are able to do so. A medical doctor should always be consulted before
beginning any exercise program.
Avoid excessive TV viewing.
Local area agencies on aging are a good source of information for older adults and
their families. They can provide lists of resources available for at-home care, food
delivery and companionship. In addition there are local senior centers, hospitals and
wellness centers.
Private case management services offered .by social workers in many communities,
and counselors and therapists may be located -throutgh state psychological associations,
counselor associations and associations of social workers.

Drug Benefit

(ARA) During the enroll-
ment period for the Medicare
prescription drug benefit, the
Medicare Rx Education Net-
work is encouraging
Medicare beneficiaries to
contact their local state
health insurance assistance
program to speak one-on-one
with a counselor. Every state
has such a program, though it
may be called by different
names (e.g., SHIP, SHINE,
CLAIM, HICAP).
Beneficiaries can find a
state's health insurance pro-
gram by contacting the Elder-
care Locator at (800) 677-
1116. Eldercare Locator is a
public service of the U.S. Ad-
ministration on Aging and
connects older Americans
and their caregivers with
sources of information on se-
nior services. The service
links those who need assis-
tance with state and local
area agencies on aging and
community-based organiza-
tions that serve older adults
and their caregivers.
Open enrollment for the
Medicare prescription drug
benefit continues for six
months (through May 15,
2006). The Network's educa-
tional campaign to inform
beneficiaries about this new
insurance continues through
events, advertising and train-
ing.'
Counselors at state health
insurance assistance pro-
grams are prepared to answer
questions about the Medicare
prescription drug benefit, and
help seniors review their
choices. The Medicare Rx
Education Network advises
beneficiaries to prepare be-
fore speaking with a coun-
selor by putting together a
list of the medications cur-
rently being taken (including
dosage, frequency taken, and
cost for each), preferred
pharmacies, and by noting
current prescription, drug
coverage (if any).
