,pistol was discovered sev-
!ral blocks from where the
,hooting occurred. The
weapon, casings and
rounds were sent to the
:'Florida Department of Law
.Enforcement (FDLE) lab to
"'determine if the weapon
was the one used in the
shooting, McLeod said. The
,'investigation continued for
'several months as LOPD
Det. Chuck Tompkins inter-
viewed numerous possible
''witnesses and suspects.
:'On June 1 Det. Tompkins
!interviewed Jonathan Mc-
' Caskill, 24, regarding his
'possible involvement in this
, crime. At that time Mc-
Caskill denied having any
' knowledge or involvement
'in the shooting of Johnny
-"Hurst, McLeod said. How-
"ever, during-this interview
'it was learned .that Mc-
Caskill was in possession of
-'*a shotgun which is a viola-
-tion of his probation,
'-McLeod said. Det. Tomp-
-kins continued this investi-
I nation and took possession
"bf a 12-gauge bolt action
'shotgun, McLeod said. The
*"barrel and stock of the
'weapon had been cut


down, and further investi-
gation revealed this
weapon had been stolen
from Brownsville, Tx,
McLeod said. On June 13
Det. Tompkins arrested Mc-
Caskill on charges of viola-
tion of probation and pos-
session of a sawed off shot-
gun, McLeod said.
A break in the Hurst
shooting case came when
Suwannee County Sheriff's
Sgt. Chris Fry received in-
formation about the shoot-
ing. McLeod said Sgt. Fry
talked with someone who
was present when the
shooting occurred, and this
person provided other
names of people who were
present and also named the
shooter.
Sgt. Fry and Det. Tomp-
kins interviewed several
people and made the deci-
sion to charge McCaskill
with shooting Hurst.
On Dec. 15 Sgt. Fry and
Det. Tompkins traveled to
the Calhoun Correctional
Institute and interviewed
McCaskill, McLeod said. In-
formation charging Mc-
Caskill with attempted mur-
der will be forwarded to the
Third Circuit State Attor-
ney's Office, McLeod said.

known reason crossed over the
center line and struck
Sawamoto's Mazda in the left
front with the left front of Re-
sor's Buick. Resor's vehicle
started a counter clock-wise
spin and overturned onto its
roof, FHP said. Sawamoto's


vehicle spun clock-wise and
came to a final rest on the
south shoulder, according to
FHP.
Sawamoto's 13-year-old
grandson, Nichlaus Charles, a
passenger in Sawamoto's vehi-
cle, was not listed as having
any injuries and the FHP re-
port said he had his seatbelt on
during the crash.
Traffic on US 90 was


blocked due to the crash and
had to be re-routed for several
hours while rescue and FHP
worked the scene. About a half
dozen FHP accident and fatal-
ity investigators were on scene
investigating the crash for
some time.
One person on scene de-
scribed it as one of the worst
accidents she had seen.

Every year Humbles has to
find a theme. "You can't
change the story, so you find a
new format to present it,'"
Humbles said.
This year's theme was called
S"Lift Your Eyes...Your Salva-
tion Comes!" and is taken from
I Psalms 121, which reads: "I
will lift up mine eyes unto the
hills, from whence cometh my
Shelp. l Ji help(icotmethii from

tata is always an inter-genera-

drama with speaking parts and
music.
This year the drama featured
Will Ohms and his brother, Jor-
dan Harmon, as the Magi and
his son seeking the new king.
The featured soloist was Lani
Clark of Wellborn, a senior at
Branford High School and a
talented singer and musician.

gether the music. Humbles was

COMMENTARY


MAYOR'S CORNER





BY SONNY NOBLES
The Live Oak City council made some decisions this past week that
will have important and far-reaching effects on your city and its future.
The Council approved borrowing $8.6 million to build the new waste-
water sewer plant. More accurately,. the Council voted to establish a line
of credit in that amount. As I have relayed to you before, the city has a
plan to get grant and legislative appropriation monies to paN for this fa-
cility. We already have approximately $2.5 million that could be used..
The city is under a consent order to begin building the plant immediate-
ly. We must have the money in hand to begin construction. The Council
also agreed to establish a $2.5 million line of credit to build an elevated
water tank north of town. This is imperative for future growth and ex-
pansion of the city. Many businesses require sprinkler systems for fire
protection. The new Lowve's facility will use up our system's fire flow ca-
pacity, which means that no other businesses requiring this service would
be able to connect The city will require those that need this additional
protection to pay for it. It is the position of staffland the Council that this
additional'sernice should be paid for by those who require it and not paid
for by residents. We will aggressively seek alternative funding to go to-
wards the water to%%er. An application for a Community Development
Block Grant for $700(.00 is in the works to go towards building con-'
struction.
The city recognized two retired employees for their niany years of ser-
vice to the city and citizens of Li% e Oak. They gave 68 years of combined
service. Ronnie Harrell worked for the city for 43 years. Tyrone "Chuck"
Carter served us for 25. These men %were dedicated and valued employ-
ees. Often. they performed their jobs in the worst of conditions. The cirt
presented them with certificates of apprecianon and a gift for their ser-
%ice. These were very small tokens of appreciation considering what they
have done for the city of Live Oak. A big THANK YOU goes out to Ron-
nie and Chuck for their many years of service.
The cit~officially hasa new. park with the dedication of-Baker Park last
week. Most of the park Zwas financed with a DEP grant inbthe anidunt of
$50.000: Others played important roles in the building of the park. The
city assisted with staff and labor support. Shannon Court, project special-
ist with the city, wrote the grant and did most of the administrative work.
Suwannee Parks and Recreation also gave valuable help. Greg, Earl and
his helpers were instrumental in bringing the park to life. Jeremy and Julie
Ulmer of Ulilmer Construction provided the labor, at no cost, to build the
pavilion. Julie was the inspiration and driving force in getting this new fa-
cilitv. A big TI-lANK YOU goes out to all who played a pan in making

I encourage you again this \ear not to advertise your gifts. Crush or bag
gift boxes rather than just putting them on the street for everyone to see
what's new in your house. Keep those bicycles and other gifts out of sight
or locked. 1 suggest you write down serial numbers for those items that
have them such as bikes and computers. Protect yourself and your prop-
erty. Also. please drive safely. There was a rash of auto accidents last
week, four in one day. Everyone's in a hurm during the holidays. School
is out for the next rtmo weeks so watch out for those little Christmas list
makers. Be merry and happy but be safe. As always. w ear those seat belts.
The Live Oak Fire Department went LOCO again this past week. For
the second %weekend. the department held a yard sale to raise funds to help
those in need in our community. The yard sales raised $3,800 to benefit
the Live Oak Conununity' Organization. .LOCO). A big T-LANK YOU
goes out to Safety Officer Alan Bedenbaugh, the firefighters and volun-
teers of the Live Oak Fire Department. Thanks to Pam and Mandy Be-
. denbaugh and Sue Cundiffl for their assistance. I also recognize the Sher-
iff's Office for providing inmate help through the jail. Christmas is a time
Sfor caring and giving. Thanks to everyone for their efforts in serving those
in need in our community. We are truly a caring community.
I recognize those who had a hand in getting our Christmas decorations
up this year. Thanks to the Tourist Development Council for providing
the money to purchase the new banners. Jay McCosh, Kay McCosh and
Shannon Court spent countless hours replacing bulbs in our lighted dec-
orations. The efforts of Suwvannee Valley Electric, Alliel and the Live Oak
Fire Department for putting up the hangers, banners and lights are great-
ly appreciated. Linda Hartsfield and her staffat Live Oak Florist donated
many hours in making the bows and putting them on the decorations. An-
other big TI-HANK YOU goes out to all for their efforts in brightening our
city for the Christmas holidays.
I received information this week that the building of a new postal fa-
cility promised Live Oak for the past years has now been halted. Need-
less to say, this is a little upsetting. I am in touch with Senator Bill Nel-
son and Allen Boyd to verity this as fact. We should know something def-
inrte soon. We may need to let our voices be heard when Sen. Nelson


comes to town.
Sen. Bill Nelson will be in Live Oak at the Live Oak City Hall at 2:45;
on Jan. 5 for a town hall meeting. Hopefully our community will turn out
and welcome the Senator. All are encouraged to come and express any
opinions or concerns you mayhave
I'll take a few weeks off for the holidays. I wish everyone a Merry
Christmas and happy holidays.

New International Version (NIV) ,

The Birth of Jesus
1 In those days, Caesar Augustus issued
a decree that a census should be taken of
the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the
first census that took place while Quirinius was
governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to his own


town to register.

4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee
to Judea, to Bethlehem the towit of David, because he belonged to
the house and line' of David. 5 He went there to register with'hMary.
who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6
While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born. 7 and she
? gave birth to herfirstborn, 'a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed himn
in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. ,

The Shepherds and the Angels
8 And there were shepherds livingut in ithe fields nearby. keeping watch over their flocks at
Night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them. and the glory of the Lord shone around them,
iand they were terrified. 10But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. Bring you good news
of great joy thai will before all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been
born to you; he is Christ [a] the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to yoi:ou iu will find a baby
wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.

13 Suiddenly a great company of the heavenlyy host appeared with the angel, praising God and
saying, 14 "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another;
"Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has.told us
about."

16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the
manger. 17 When they had seen hi'i, they spread the word concerning ,what had been told them
about this child, 18 and alfl w'ho heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19
But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds re-
turned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just
as they had been told. . .

Jesus Presented in the Temple
21 On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise him, he was named Jesus. the name the '
angel had given him before hie had been conceived.

22 When the time of their purification according to the Law of Moses had been completed,
Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord 23 (as it is' written in the ,
Law of the Lord, "Every firstborn male is to be consecrated to the Lord"[b]). 24 and to offer a
sacrifice in keeping with what is said in the Law of the Lord: "a pair of doves or two voung pi-
geons. [c]

25 Now there was a man in Jerusalen called Simeon, who was righteous and devoii. 'He was
waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 It had been revealed
'to himn by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord's Christ. 27 Moved
by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus.to do
jfor hit/ what the custom of the Law required. 28 Simeon took him/ in his arms and praised God,
saying: 29 "Sovereign Lord. as you have promised, .you now dismissed] your servant in peace.
30 For my eyes have seen your salvation, 31 which you have prepared in the sight of all people,
32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel."

33 The child's father and mother man'eled at what was said about him. 34 Then Simeon
blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: "This child is destined to cause the falling and ris-
ing of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, 35 so that the thoughts of
many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too."

36 There itwas also a prophetess, Anna. the daughter of Phanuel, of the ribe ofAsher. She as
very old: she had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage, 37 and then was a
widow until she was eight-four.[e] She never left the temple but Worshiped night and day, fast-
ing and praying. 38 Coming up to them at that very moment, she gave thanks to God and spoke
about the child to all who were looking fonvard to the redemption of Jerusalem.

39 IWhen Joseph and Maan' had done everything required by iie Liaw of the Lord, they re-
turned to Galilee to their own town of Nazareth. 40 And the child grew and became strong; he
1was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him.

She Boy Jesus at the Temple
41 'Every year his parents went.to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover: 42 \\'hen /ie was
twelve years old. they went up to the Feast, according to the custom. 43 After the Feast was'
over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they'
weree unaware of it. 44 Thinking he was in their company they traveled on for a day. Then t/he'y
began looking for him among their relatives and friends. 45' Ihien they did not find him, they
went back to Jerusalem to look for him. 46 After three days they found him in the temple courts,
sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. 47 Everyone who
heard him was amazed at his understanding and his allswers. 48 When his parents saw him,
they were astonished. His mother said to him. "Son, ivhy have you treated us like this? Your fa-
ther and I have been an.xious/vly searching for you." ,


49 "Why were you searching for me?" he asked. "Didn't you know I had to be in my Father's
house?" 50 But they did not understand what he was saying to them.

51 Then he went down to Nazarethi wit them and was obedient to tiem. But his mother trea-
sured all these things in her heart. 52 And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in javor with
God and men.

During the meeting Putnam
reminded the teams she was
there only as a facilitator, not
as a decision-maker.
"I'm here to facilitate the
settlement, and that's for you
guys to make the decision,"
she said.
' She also reminded the group
that everything discussed in
caucus was confidential.
Representing the School
" District's bargaining team at
the first meeting was School
I Board Business Manager and
chief negotiator Rick Norris
and Assistant Superintendent
, Bill Yanossy. Representing the
teachers' union was chief ne-
gotiator George Bowen, union
president Sheryl Daniels,
union vice president Rashonda
Herring, teachers Steve, Camp-
bell and Anmiette Kinsey and
paraprofessional 'Frankie
Allen.
"The.issues that separate us
is the union's proposal of 6
percent for teachers' raises for
all bargaining employees,
which- include instr ctional
"' and non-instructional employ-
ees, and the Board's position
of 3 percent," Bowen ex-
plained to Putnam.
*' Bowen said the other issue
regarding compensation was
' the union's proposal for
-' changes in the instructional
f' schedule to increase the pay of
teachers with advanced de-
grees by $800 for each ad-
S vanced degree. The Board's
position was to maintain the,
current supplement for teach-
-' ers with advanced degrees.
S' Bowen said that $675,000
was the difference that t.epa-
) rated the proposals.
"Based on my calculations,
the way I see the difference in
- terms of dollars based on a
v' three percent raise is $144,000
. for non-instructional employ-
b ees and $530,000 for instruc-
a tional employees,'i he said ex-
L 'plaining these' atfiotiits are;
c coming from the operating
'* budget. "Including what we're
n proposing for an advance for
& teachers with advanced de-
a grees, the total' comes to
$675,000.",
Norris didn't dispute or
-* comment on Bowen's figures
-i but only said he didn't have
those calculations off the top
._ of his head.
5 Norris reminded the union's
tr bargaining team they offered a
ijf 3 percent raise across the.
1-. board for teachers but also al-
. ready-gave a step increase of
0 1.26 percent. He also added
n, that the raises would not be

tended but would go into ef-

did the calculations at the be-
ginning of the year with the
funds they had, in order to of-
fer the 3 percent they had to
dip into the Board's contin-
gency fund of $500,000.
"However, since the begin-
ning of the year class-size re-
duction mandates have forced
us to hire four new teachers for
the middle school which costs
us $167,000," Norris said.
"We also had fuel costs double
this year because of gas and
diesel going up, which also
means utilities have gone up
more than we budgeted for.
With all those increases we
will still be able to offer the 3
percent, but it will not be
retroactive."
Bowen asked Norris if the
decision to not have the raise
increase retroactive was decid-
ed in executive session.
"Was this something the
Board just wanted to do?"
Bowen asked.
"It's what we've got to do as
a result of the changes that
have occurred at the beginning
of the year," Norris said.
Bowen said based on this
comment that changes things
quite a bit.
"The 3 percent I calculated
was based on a full year, not
on a half year," Bowen said.
"The amount on the table
when the impasse was de-
clared was 3 percent retroac-
tive to July 1, so basically
what we have on the table
amounts to about a percent
and a half for the year. So this
changes things quite a bit."
Bowen asked Norris if his
calculation of $675,000 was
accurate. Norris responded he
had not done the same calcula-
tions.
"The last estimate I did was
1 percent across the board,
whichh costs about $252,000,
but this was on all employees,
not just bargaining unit em-
ployees," Norris said.
. Bowen explained his calcu-
lations onl5 included bargain-
ing employees since these are
the only employees he is nego-
tiating for.
Norris said the Board al-
ways gives administrative em-
ployees the same amount as
bargaining employees.
Bowen asked Norris if the
School Board's raise was
retroactive. Norris said it was-
n't, but that it runs from De-
cember to December.,
After the discussion the bar-
gaining teams broke up into
'caucus in which Putnam fur-
ther heard arguments from
both sides. As of yet, the teams
have not come to a settlement.

Christmas on Sunday
Have you ever looked for op-
portunities to honor the Lord?
Well, this Christmas you are pre-
sented with a natural! You have
an available opportunity, in all of
the business of life, the hubbub,
of the holiday season, to stop and
display to the Lord just how
much He means to you.
God's' word Says, ... let us
consider one another to pr6ooke '
unto love and to good works:
Notforsaking the assembling of David H. Matter
ourselves together, as the man-
ner of some is; :but exhorting one another: and much the
more, as ye see the day approaching." Hebrews 10:24, 25)
God tells you, through the inspired author of the epistle to
the Hebrews, that you encourage others to do,the "right
thing" by your faithful anendance at your church and you
are encouraged to be more faithful in attendance as the Sec-
ond Coming of the Lord approaches. You hae an opportu-
nrity to honor God and encourage others on Christmas Day
by your attendance at a Bible believing, New Testament
church.
Though Dec. 25 is probably not the actual birth date of
Christ, it is the date the world has set aside to celebrate the
birth of Christ: the incarnation of the Lord of Glory (John
1:1, 2,. 14). As a Christian your attendance, or neglect of at-
tendance, at a church that faithfully holds forth thetruths of
the Word of God reveals to others your priorities. What an
opportunity to point them to Christ!
Where will you be Sunday morning, Dec. 25?

first RN class prepares for classes to begin Jan. 5


NFCC'S FIRST RN CLASS ORIENTATION: Pictured, I to r, first row, Tracy Gniewick, Michelle Miller,
Kelly Fullwood and Mary Holt; second row, Alicia Smfith and Kim Spencer prepare for upcoming RN
classes at North Florida Community College, Madison. Photo: Submitted


North Florida Community
College (NFCC) is gearing up
for its first ever registered
nurse (RN) class beginning
Jan. 5, 2006. In an orientation
held Dec, 6, 2005 RN staff
met with the 20 prospective
RN students who will -pilot
the RN Program.
NFCC has been working
toward bringing the associate
degree in nursing to rural
north Florida residents for
four years, the program will
undergo a two-year process
before obtaining full state
board of nursing approval sta-
tus which will be granted af-
ter this round of students
graduate and pass national
examinations.
"I am so excited that these
students have been selected to
pilot the RN program here at


NFCC," said NFCC Allied
Health Programs Director
Nita Fico. "I look forward to
a busy academic year. We
will have three full days of
RN classes a week including
8-12 hour clinical shifts at
area hospitals and nursing
homes.."
The RN program began at
NFCC in response to the ex-
panding nursing shortage that
estimates 125,000 vacant
nursing positions in the U.S.
NFCC began developing a
plan for a registered nursing
program in 2001. The goal is
to train nurses for six of the
most rural counties in the
state Hamilton, Jasper,
Lafayette, Madison, Suwan-,
nee and Taylor counties. A
survey of health care facilities
and physicians in NFCC's


six-county service district
area showed that 310 addi-
tional health care profession-
als are needed over the next
few years to meet increasing
demands.
For more information con-
tact the NFCC RN Program '

day Dec. 19 from 3 to 5 p.m.
Free food was served by smiling

ulars" and several of the servers
shared laughs with customers.
Dixie Grill owner Myra
Thomas said the servers make
some of the goodies and the'

Dixie Grill owner Charles
Thomas said they've been doing


the customer appreciation day
for about 10 years and each year
it has increased.
"Our customers look forward
to it; for some folks it's like a
Christmas party," he said.
The servers providing some
of the goodies and drinks gives
them a chance to show their ap-
preciation to customers who are
so faithful to them, Charles
Thomas said.
"It's a joint effort between the
restaurant and the servers to do
something personal for our cus-
tomers," he said.

Ross outstanding farmer


By Jim Senterfitt
J.D. Ross, Jr. was named
Outstanding Conservation
Farmer by the Supervisors of
the Suwannee River Soil and
Water Conservation District at
their May 6, Board meeting.
J.D. will be presented with the
Florida Bankers Association
Conservation Award in recoeni-


tion of .his outstanding conser-
vation program.
In making the announcement,
J.C. Copeland, Chairman of the
Suwannee River Soil and Water
Conservation District com-
mented, "It is with much
pleasure that we named J.D. as
the recipient of our 1982 Conser-


vation Award." J.D. and his son
Daniel plant some 1,000 or more
acres of cropland each year in a
double cropping system with
small grains and soybeans under
a minimum tillage program.
The Ross's combine is equip-
ped with a mulching machine at-
tachment. As the straw,
(residue), is sifted out of the
back of the combine the mulcher
pulverizes the residue. The crop
residue is then disced (once) into
the top, surface of the soil leav-
ing much of the residue on the
surface to provide cover and pro-
tection fromweather and wind
erosion. Following the discing,
soybeans are planted, fertilized,
and herbicide applied.
Cultivaiton is carried out as
needed to control late weed
croPs.
J.D Ross, Jr. is the son of the
late J.D. Ross, Sr. who was a
charter member of the Suwan-


nee River Soil and Water Con-
servation District Board of
Supervisors serving from 1942
until his death in July of 1968,
better known as J. Dan Ross,
"The Father of Soil Conserva-
tion movement in Suwannee
County."
It seems only fitting to men-
tion this, Copela nd said, "I was
privileged to have served three
and a half years on the Board
with J. Dan Ross. He was truly
dedicated to the Soil and Water
Conservation movement and
contributed much of his time
and efforts toward the pioneer
movement of Soil and Water
Conservation."
The Outstanding Conserva-
tion Award will be presented to
Ross at the Farm City Barbecue
sponsored by Suwannee County
Farm Bureau, Thursday evenin-
,g at 7 p.m. at .the Farm Bureau
meeting room.

Reginald H. Scott, Jr., has
recently returned from Daytona
Beach.'Fl. where he attended the
31st Annual Training Con-
ference for the County Veterans
Service Officers.
Mr. Scott has served Suwan-


nee County as the County Ser-
vice Officer for over 10 years,. He
was re-elected President of the
County Veterans Service Of-
ficers Association of Florida, for
a third term.


Track team


ends season


Strong South Florida teams
ended the state championship
hopes of the Suwannee Bulldog
track team in Winter Park;
The Bulldogs nevertheless
managed a respectable 29th
place finish out of 75 teams at
the Class AAA state track meet
Friday.
The team title was won by
Rockledge High School. Glades
Central High was second and
Lake Wales was third. followed
by Tioub.illf- and Tallahassee
Lincoln.
Kenny Paul Williams. who set
a school and regional meet
record in the mile a week ago,
arrame within six tenths of a se.
ccnd of duplicating t.he perior-
m.anie. finishing third in 1-24 7.
Thie winning time was 4 19.1
Williams was the only Bulldog
to score points in the meet.
High jumper Kenny L.
\ illiams let a neA school record
with a leap ot .'2" but did not
qualify tor the finals The winn-
ing jump was 610' .
PNg-y VMartin bettered her
quarter mile time and equalled
hei 22ii yard dash locking from
rth repgonals hut could do no
better than eighth place in the
220 and ninth in the 440.,
She ran a 60.9 quarter mile
.and a 2f, 7 in the 220
Reginald Ford, who a week
ea tier had run a school record
22 2 in the 220 vard dash, Fri-
day ran a 23, 0 and didn't make it
to the finals. Like,,,ise, his 21 6
fool broad jump effort didn't


land him in the finals. The winn-
ing leap was 214'0 .
Quarter miler Kenny Jennings
ran a second slower than in the
regionals, finishing in 51.9. The
winning time was 48.9.
.The relay teams, considered to
be Suwannee's best hope for a
run at the state title, didn't
come close to their best times.
The mile medley team, ranked
fourth byh the Orlando Sentinel
Star, ran 6.9 seconds slower
than its best time and finished
in 3:40.9.
The mile relay team ran seven
seconds off its best effort,
finishing in 3:31. The event was
won in ,3:1a 9. Suwannee's best
time would have been good for
third place.
"It was a combination of
things," Coach Marion
Chishoim ?aid. 'The teams from
South Florida were unbelievable
and all our times were off."
Chisholm said that overall, the
year has been a very successful
one.
"Overall, we had a super
year," he said. "We achieved an
enormous amount for a small
team. We were big in heart.
mall in numbers and real
tough."
The track team stayed in
Winter Park Friday and toured
Disney World Saturday before
returning home. Their trip was
sponsored by the Suwannee
Bulldog Football Boosters,
several churches and in-
dividuals. Chisholm said,

overcome with glee.


System a

themselves and Suwannee Coun-

new 24-hour call-in system
begun last month by county of-
ficials.
Under the system, potential
jurors can readily find out
whether or not their case is still
scheduled for court by calling
362-4683 the day before and
listening to a pre-recorded
message.
The 24-hour answering service
was installed in an effort to help
prevent jurors from appearing
for jury duty unnecessarily
when a case has been settled on
the day or the night before the
scheduled trial.
According to Circuit Court
Clerk Jerry Scarborough, the


LidS jurors
system has proved to be more
successful than the old method
of calling all jurors individually
when a case was disposed of
before the scheduled court date.
."So far it's been really en-
couraging," Scarborough said.
J"Last month everyone called in
except for two people out, of
125.
The main problem with the old
system was that many times of-
ficials were unable to contact
,jurors in time when a case was
settledithe day or night before it
.was scheduled to go to trial,
Scarborough said.
"This is a savings to the tax-
payers because when jurors are
not needed and they appear
anyway, we have to pay them."
he said.

ners-up. The Wizards be-
came the only undefeated
team in Rec Department bas-
ketball with a final record of
11-0.
High point ,scorer for the
Wizards was Jarvis Johnson,
a natural player with 23
points. Deangelo Ross
scored 14 points. Tyler
Jerkins scored two.
Nate Nelson was the coach
for the Wizards. He had yet
another championship game
on the line with. the Junior
teams.
The Junior game between
the Pacers and the Heat got
off to a rough start with a
coach-parent being ejected
from the game in the first
moments. The parent object-
ed to a call and threatened to
remove his kid from the
game. The crowd booed and
the player stayed. The parent
left.


After the scuffle, the game
resumed with the Heat tak-
ing two technical foul shots.
The Heat and 'the Pacers
were fairly matched with an
even number of tall players
and two talented shooters on
each team. Both teams had a
girl on the roster.
The game stayed close
through the first half. At one
point, the Pacers led by only
one 22-21. But the' Pacers
began to pull away as the
half drew close to an end and
led at the half by 14, 37-23.
The third quarter saw an-
other scuffle. One of the
Heat players took a punch at
a Pacer and was removed for
a personal foul. That play-
er's parent proceeded to
cause a disturbance in the
stands between several moi e
parents. The Heat coach
wanted to concede the game
but play continued. At the
end of the third the Pacers
had a commanding 54-33
lead ,.i, . *.; ...., ;.- ....,
At the end of the game, it
was Nate Nelson's secor.d
win of the day. The Pace: s
took the championship 63-
57.
"It feels wonderful to ham e
two championship teams."
Nate Nelson said. "I'm
proud of the kids. If it wasn't
for the kids, we wouldn't be
here."
Brandon Raines led the
scoring with 24 points, Jere-
miah Ross, a killer from the
three-point line, scored 21
points with four three-point
baskets. Jordan Law scored
16 points and Kaylee Dunn
scored two.
The Heat took the runner-
up position with Kyle'
Thompson scoring a whop-
ping 39 points. Jarrod
Glasper scored nine, Allison
Broxey scored four, Abra-
ham Robinson scored three
and Murphy Chancey scored
two.

tant to you."
."Surround yourself with
the right people," Hall said.
"There 'is so much talent in
this to n, but they hang out
with the wrong people."
Hall spoke of his long-
standing relationship with
Kelly Jennings and Jarvis
Herring. The three football
play er-. all attending Divi-
sion I schools, :have been
friends since middle school.
"Stick together," Hall said.
"That's what we did. We
looked out for each other.
We knew each others
dreams. We had the same
mind set, same focus. We
had to step out and be differ-
ent. Get your friends and
look out for each other."
Hall said he. wasn't the
fastest football player or the
strongest, but he works
hard.
"There is no substitute for
hard work," Hall said. "Be
the hardest worker. Be first
in line. I wanted to be a
leader. I always knew there
was a guy right behind me
that wanted my job."
Hall said it all starts in
middle school with hard
work. He urged the kids to
believe in themselves.
"You've got to believe in
yourself," Hall said. "Many
people told me I couldn't
make it. They said I wasn't
fast enough or didn't, hit
hard enough. I just believed
in myself. I love it when
people tell me I can't do
something. It makes me
work harder and become
more determined."
Hall closed with "Stay
humble. No matter how
good you get, work hard.
Things will turn out your
way."
PAL Offensive Player of
the Year was Randy Bennett.
PAL Lineman of the Year
was Allison Broxey.
PAL Defensive Player of

Each year we celebrate the birth of a helpless child: Jesus the
Lord, the King of kings, the Messiah, the only Son of God.
However, the significance of this special gift, given to
Sus by our Heavenly Father, often becomes secondary to
all the other things that the Christmas season has to
offer. During this time of year, we are also thinking
about all of the gifts that we may receive and all
those we have to purchase for our loved ones and
friends. Surely, decorating our homes, buying
gifts, and all of the holiday preparations can
become quite hectic; nevertheless, most
everyone enjoys doing these things for this
special holiday. Also, because of Christmas, most
places of worship have special events scheduled
during this time of year that we should try to
attend and take part in. God wants us to enjoy all
of the wonderful things during this blessed time,
and to be mindful of the great love that He has
for us. His love is uniquely exemplified by giving
us eternal salvation in a helpless Child, lying in a
manger, wrapped in swaddling cloths.

Glory to id 1i the highest, and oi Earth peace,
goodwill toward ien. .

What do you want for Christma?,


If you ask children what they want for Christmas, they will
probably tell you about all of the latest toys and games on o
the market. For most well-cared-for youngsters, I guess it o 0 io
is the material things in their lives that give them the
most joy and happiness. Children, as well as adults, often
desire the luxuries of life, and we tend to take for granted
all of the blessings that we have been given. However, I am o
sure it is not that way for the needy, less fortunate
children in the world. For Christmas, these children would 9
probably ask fQr something like a new pair of shoes, or a
warm coat, or perhaps a sweater. The true Christmas spirit o
should be more about giving than receiving, and sharing
what'we have with others. The Bible tells us that the
generous person is blessed by God, and that God will not
forget the good works and labors of love which have been
performed in His name.

He that hath two coats,.let him impart to him that
hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.
K.J.: Luke 3:11

The first Suwannee 4-H RoboDogs' Robotics LEGO


Competition was successful and a lot of fun!


"Who let the dogs out?" -
Suwannee County 4-H Ro-
boDogs were cheering on
Nov. 19 at McNair Magnet"
School in Cocoa Beach at the
First Lego League (FLL) Re-
gional Robotics Competition.
The FLL theme this year
was Ocean Odyssey. The
competition consisted of: (1)
four matches (2.5-minute
rounds in which the robot was
to perform nine missions on a
vinyl mat four feet by eight
feet); (2) three meetings with
the judges to discuss pro-
gramming, technical aspects
and exhibit teamwork; and (3)
research presentation.
The other teams at the com-
petition were only using time
sensors on their robots. The
RoboDogs, however, pro-
,rammed their iob: 10b t u s
rotational, lihht and touch
sensors to progress [hroLigh
the mirssiorns and re-orient it-


self on the mat. In spite of
their outstanding program-

on to state competition at
Florida Institute of Technolo-
gy, they did receive a trophy
for "Most Creative Research
Presentation." It is unusual
for a rookie' team to come
home with any awards their
first year.
Quotes from team members
"The tournament was so
much fun! There were kids
runnlin g around yelling, play-
ing and programming the
. bt." .It as so, exiting
wieni the official would call
ou't \ho 'as in the next
iound'." "W'V had a great time,
e'.en if our pri,:grams. didn't
\\ ork quite right and our robot
W wouldn't al., aii goC straight!"
"\\i now"'hate a lot of great
ideas for next year."
The team learned a lot
about Ioboiics- ,'.lle piep.i!-
im.nt tbor tie competition. The,,
learned it program the robot
to do \\lhat ithe;, earned it to


do, first by using time sensors
(as the variable). For accura-
cy, they switched to counting
rotations and then added light
and touch sensors to fine tune
the robot's performance. They
learned about different gears
and traction, and built robots
using many different designs
for speed, stability and con-
sistency.
"For the mo-s part, it [being
a member of the RoboDogs]
*was fun, until we were doing
it every da) Then it became
work. I made new friends.,
learned a lot and' found out
how important teamwork is"
- Jared Lahgell .
