Raises set for School Board


lVanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter

In a School Board meeting
Dec. 13 raises for School
Board members-were set.
Chairperson Barbara Ceryak
told the Board that Superinten-
dent of School Walter Boatright
had recommended the Board
adopt the salary of $25,333 for
the succeeding 12 months.
"The proposed salary is rec-"
ommended by the Florida
School Board's Association
and is calculated in accordance
with the formula for compen-
sation of elected county con-
stitutional officers as required
in chapter 145 Florida
statutes," Ceryak said.
School Board member
Muriel Owens moved for ap-
proval for the recommenda-
tion, and Board member Jerry
Taylor seconded the motion.


Mladaim chairman, I recom-
mend' the salary. we adopt
would be $25,319 as opposed
to the constitutional formula,'
because this is pin lined with
what we are able to do for our
:employees across the board
anid with step increases," vice
chairperson Julie Ulmer said.
"So this amount reflects the
4.26 percent offered to teach-
ers?" Taylor asked.
Ulmer responded in the af-
firmative.


"I move to amend the mo-
tion to reflect U liner's figures,"
Board member J.M. Holtzclaw
said.
Owens.seconded the amend-
ed motion.
The ,Board then voted to
adopt the $25,319 salary for
the School Board's December
2005 to December 2006 year.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR


Dear Editor:
Jan. 5, 2006 at 2:45 p.m. is
an important day for Live Oak
and the surrounding areas. On
that date and time Senator Bill
Nelson will be at city hall and
the main topic will be securing
a new post office.
You may.recall about 1999,
as mayor, I began a serious
crusade to secure a new facili-
ty to replace our 1915 post of-
fice. Entering the parking lot
is dangerous, walking through
it is precarious and the handi-
capped must ramp up to the
back door for service. Nothing
has changed.
Letters were written to pub-
lic figures, phone calls were
made and newspaper columns
written. Finally we were as-
sured that 2005 would see
planning finalized and con-
struction begun 'in 2006.


Along came Katrina and Rita
and plans were frozen. Then
further encouragement was
given and again everything
was put on hold, which is
where we are now.
The present building is 90
years old and we need the in-
fluence of Senator Nelson to
get this very needed facility
moving toward construction.
The city has done its part by
annexing the proposed site
and it has zoning board ap-
proval. Mayor Nobles has vig-
orously pursued this matter.
Now let's do our part by pack-
ing the council room at 2:45
p.m., Jan. 5, 2006. Please at-
tend this meeting and show
the senator we need help,
Mark your calendars now for
2:45 p.m., Jan. 5,,2006.
Sim erely..

Food Safety



and Avian Flu


By Meredith Taylor,
Suwannee County
Extension Service
USDA Under Secretary for
Food Safety Richard Ray-
mond has noted that if Avian
Influenza (AI) were detected
in the U.S., the chance of in-
fected poultry entering the
food chain would be ex-
tremely low.
Nevertheless, proper han-
dling and cooking of poultr,
provides protection against
AI. Handling and cooking
poultry correctly already
protects us against other
viruses and bacteria, includ-
ing Salmoniella and E.coli.
Practice safe food handling
and preparation every day
by:
Washing hands before
and after handling food;
Preventing cross-contam-
ination by keeping ra% meat,
poultry. fish and their juices

Just a reminder to all, the
Wellborn Neighborhood
Watch (WNW) will not have
a December meeting. The
next WNW meeting will be,
on Jan. 26, 2006 Their guest
will be Suwannee County
Sheriff Tony Cameron, who
will speak on his first year as
Suwannee County Sheriff,
the challenges he has faced,
and the progress he feels the
Suwannee County Sheriff's
Office has made under his
leadership. Stay turned for a
New Year's update on this
most anticipated WNW
meeting.
It's that time ... please re-
member to pray for our
troops and their families ...
help the wayfaring stranger,
the less fortunate among us,
and the neighbor in need ..
love may be a second hand
emotion but without it who
among us feels complete? As
the old year begins to wane
and give way to the coming
new year it is my hope that
each of us will take time to
reflect on what we can do to
make our community a better
place for all who live within
the borders of where we call
home ... whether home is the
Wellborn outback, Live Oak
or Lake City. The repairing
of our world is possible, but
it takes the efforts of us all
... some efforts may be less
than others, but some effort
is better than no effort at all.
Merry Christmas, Happy
Hanukah and Happy Kwan-
zaa. And, as Tiny Tim would
say, "And God Bless Every-
one!"

What factors should I consider
when selecting gloss?


dint~io... Iith .1 Nrc,.., Bu~riminiiii


A Overall appearance: the. lower. gloss
finishes giVe a softer, smoother look.
Higher Gloss tends to amplify minor dents
A dings drn\\all seams. But some degree of
gloss on woodwork, tends to add to the detail.
Ease of use: For the inexperienced user lower gloss
paints are recommended for most walls & ceilings.
Serviceability: the higher gloss finishes tend to resist
marking & clean better than the, but, flat paints tend
to touch up. the best.
In general use flat finish paints on the ceiling, flat or
low gloss on walls, low gloss or semi gloss on trim &
woodwork. Save the high gloss for you car, avoid flat
paint in mildew prone areas.

Drug and non-drug therapies for dry eye
Dry eye can be caused by a multitude of things and is characterized by
red eyes that feel gritty. There are several remedies that can be used to
alleviate this condition. Non-drug therapies for dry eye can be used
alone or in combination with drug therapy. Environmental control, such
as avoiding dry, dusty, and windy spaces, is usually helpful.
Humidifiers in the home or office can help to moisturize eyes, and
prolonged viewing of a computer screen should be avoided when
possible.
Nonprescription drug therapies include artificial tears and eye
ointments. Artificial tears help to stabilize the tear film and slow the
evaporation of tears. These products are easy to use and are usually not
messy. Eye ointments contain petrolatum, lanolin, mineral' oil, or a
combination, and these products help to lubricate the eye and prevent
tear evaporation. Although very effective, these products can be messy
and more difficult to use. Due to the many products, it may be difficult
to choose the best treatment. A pharmacist or eye care professional can
help in choosing the best drug and non-drug therapies for treating dry
eye. 222603-F

BY SUSAN K. LAMB .
Democrat Managing Editor

Christmas has come and to help those who have a
gone once again, leaving need.
most of us with wonderful New Year's Day is Sun-
memories. Some families day. We will start. a new
are sorrowing over losses year in our lives...a year
in their families, illnesses that. no doubt will bring
or other tragedies. Keep surprises good and bad in
those families in your our lives. Some will be pre-
prayers but most of all, put pared, some will not, to
feet to those prayers where meet these challenges. It is
you can and do something my prayer you will be


ready for whatever comes
and that your year will be
filled with much happiness.
As we enter this new
year, let us all have positive
expectations for our own
lives, for our governmental
agencies and for great
things to happen in the
coming year for our city
and our county. We live in a
wonderful community that
is growing by leaps and
bounds and change is upon
us, but then change is what
makes us better.
Fire Chief Jim O'Neil
sent the following to me
and I run it in his honor as
he works in New Orleans
helping to put that -great
city back together again af-
ter Hurricane Katrina and
the awful tragedy of the


flood waters that came af-
terward, shutting down that
city.
A Dad's Poem
Her hair was up in a
pony tail, her favorite
dress tied with a bow. To-
day was Daddy's Day at
school, and she couldn't
wait to go. But her mommy
tried to tell her, that she
probably should stay home.
Why, the kids might not un-
derstand, if she went to
school alone. But she was
not afraid; she knew just
what to say, what to tell her
classmates of why he was-
n't there today. But still her
mother worried, for her to
face this day alone. And
that was why once again,
she tried to keep her daugh-
ter home. But the little girl


went to school eager to tell
them .all about a dad she
-never sees, a dad who nev-
er calls. There were dad-
dies along the wall in back,
for everyone to meet. Chil-
dren squirming impatiently,
anxious in their seats. One
by one the teacher called a
student from the class to in-
troduce their daddy, as
seconds slowly passed. At
last the teacher called her
name, every 'child turned
to stare. Each of them was
searching, for a man who
wasn't there. "Where's her
daddy?" she heard a boy
call out. "She probably
doesn't have one," another
student dared to shout. And
from somewhere near the
back, she heard a daddy
say, "Looks like another
deadbeat dad, too busy to
waste his day." The words
did not offend her, she
smiled up at her mom and
looked back at her teacher,
who told her to go on. And
with hands behind her
back, slowly she began to
speak. And out from the
mouth of a child came
words incredibly unique.
"My Daddy couldn't be
here because he' lives so
far away. But I know he
wishes he could be, since
this is such a special day.
And though you cannot
meet him, I wanted you to
know all about my daddy,
and how much he loves me
so. He loved to tell me sto-
ries, he taught me to ride
my bike. He surprised me
with pink roses, and taught
me to fly a kite. We used to
share fudge sundaes, and
ice cream in a cone. And
though you cannot see him
I'm not standing here alone
'cause my daddy's always
with me, even though we
are apart. I know because
he told me he'll forever be
in my heart" With that, her
little hand reached up and
lay across her chest. Feel-
ing her own heartbeat be-


Smart cleaning:



frequently asked


questions


By Meredith Taylor,
Suwannee County
Extension Service
Q What's the most ef-
fective way to remove
stains?
A Always treat and wash
stains promptly. The longer
stains sit on a fabric, the
more difficult they may be
to remove. Here's more
about removing stains:
A -Pretreat stains. This
means treating and some-*
times completely removing
the spots and stains before
laundering. Some common
methods are:
1. Using a prewash soil
and stain remover
2. Applying and rubbing -in:
a. A liquid detergent or
b. A paste of water and
granular detergent
A -Prewash stains.' This
takes less time than soaking
and is useful for garments
with heavy or greasy soil
that might not come out in a
single, regular washing.
Some washers have a pre-
wash cycle. A detergent
should be used in a pre-
wash. Follow with a regular
wash using detergent ac-'
cording to label directions.
A -Soak stains. Whether
it's done in a basin, laundry
sink, or washer, this can ef-
fectively loosen heavy
soils. A detergent should be
mixed in water or added to
wash cycle before the
clothes. Follow label direc-
tions for the detergent.
Generally, they call for a
30-minute or longer soak-
ing period in warm or cool
water.
A -Use an in-wash stain
remover during the wash
cycle. It works with your
regular detergent to lift


stains faster and efficiently.
Q If I use more stain re-
mover product, will it be
more effective at removing
stains?
A -Adding more stain re-
mover than recommended
doesn't necessarily gener-
ate better performance. Fol-
low the directions on the
product label to help deter-
mine the appropriate
amount of product to use.
Q Will stain removers
work as well on older, set-
in stains?
A -Stains that are' older,
and set in may require more'
than one application. Some,
set-in stains may be impos-
sible to remove.
Q How can I prevent a
stain from becoming per-
manent or impossible to re-
move?
A -Treat and wash stains
promptly; Always check 'to
make sure that stains have
disappeared when removing.
items from the washer and
before drying or ironing
clothes.
Q Should I use a laun-
dry stain remover on my
carpet?
A -Only if the label says
you can. For best results,
read the product label to de-
termine its proper use.
Q If I have a question
about a particular stain re-
mover, who should I con-
tact?
A -Always contact the
manufacturer. Most labels
contain a toll-free phone
number or Web site.

neath her favorite dress.
And from somewhere in the
crowd of dads, her mother
stood in tears. Proudly
watching her daughter, who
was wise beyond her years
for she stood up for the
love of a man not in her
life. Doing what was best
for her, doing what was
right. And when she
dropped her hand back
down, staring straight into
the crowd. She finished
with a voice so soft, but its
message clear and loud. "I
love my daddy very much,
he's my shining star. And
if he could, he'd be here,
but heaven's just too far.
You see he was a fireman
and died just this past year
when airplanes hit the tow-
ers and taught Americans to
fear. But sometimes when I
close my eyes, it's like he
never went away." And
then she closed her eyes
and saw him there that day.
And to her mother's amaze-
ment, she witnessed with
surprise a room full of dad-
dies and children, all start-
ing to close their eyes. Who
knows what they saw be-
fore them, who knows
what they felt inside. Per-
haps for merely a second,
they saw him at her side. "I
know you're with me Dad-
dy," to the silence she
called out. And what hap-
pened next made believers
of those once filled with
doubt. Not one in that room
could explain it, for each of
their eyes had been closed.
But there on the desk be-
side her, was a fragrant
long-stemmed pink rose.
And a child was blessed, if
only for a moment, by the
love of her shining star and
given the gift of believing
that heaven is never too far.
They say it takes a
minute to find a special
person, an hour to appreci-
ate them, a day to love
them, but then an entire life
to forget them.

Soccer opens with

Jamboree Jan. 7

Suwannee Recreation Department
soccer opens with a huge jamboree
Saturday, Jan. 7. Come out and enjoy
all the fun. Games start in the morn-
ing.


Lady Dogs Soccer extends win streak to eight

The Lady Dogs remain "

unbeaten in their district I


The SHS Lady Bulldogs soc-
cer team won their seventh and
eighth consecutive games last
week, defeating Taylor County
3-1 and district foe Bradford
13-0, to boost their record to 10-
3-1. The Lady Dogs remain un-
beaten in their district.
The Lady Bulldogs of Taylor
County came to town on Tues-
day sporting a one-loss record
and looking for a win against
their former district rivals.
Matches between Taylor and
Suwannee typically feature
very physical play and are usu-
ally low scoring affairs, and this
game would be no different.
Both teams were in the same
district for the last two seasons,
but when the FHSAA realigned
the soccer classifications Taylor
stayed in class 3A and Suwan-
nee moved to class 4A.
Suwannee would get on the
scoreboard first in the 14th
minute on a Nicki Johnson
throw-in to Ashley Harris, who
fired a shot into upper left cor-
ner of the goal. Taylor struck
back quickly when they scored
an equalizing goal two minutes
later on a breakaway. The game
would remain tied until Harris
headed a pass to Katie Prevatt,
I who chest-trapped the ball for-
ward and blasted a rocket shot
that went between the keeper's
legs to gp. e Su'.aninee the 2-1
lead with fotIu minute remiin-


ing in the half.'
Shortly after the.second half
got underway a Taylor player
went down after a collision with
a Suwannee defender and in-
jured her neck. The ambulance
was called, and after a 45-
minute delay, the player was
taken to Gainesville on a life
flight helicopter. She would lat-
er be determined to have a neck
sprain and wasn't seriously in-
jured.
When play resumed Taylor
played with a renewed intensity
and had several opportunities to
tie the game, but the shots went
just wide of the _ioal. Suwan-
nee put the game away with two
minutes remaining when Katie
Prevatt headed in a corner kick
from Kelsey Bowen for a 3-1 fi-
nal score.
Bradford is a district 3-4A
opponent that hasn't won a
game and has yet to score a goal
against another district team. In
this Friday night match, Suwan-
nee scored early and often,
scoring eight goals' in 20 min-
utes. But the entire 40 minute
half had to be played, and
Suwannee added five more
goals in the remaining 20 min-
utes. Kelsey Bowen, Alicia
Cash, Blair Clayton, and Aman-
da Mendez had two goals
apiece, and Ashley Harris,

think one sign of a good team is
that they can play below their
potential and still win. Obvi-
ously we as coaches want them
to play up to their potential

The Raymond James & As-
sociates' equity research de-
partment has released its pop-
ular Best Picks list for 2006.
The list, according to David
Henwood, chief investment
officer at Raymond James &
Associates, highlights indi-
vidual stocks that Raymond
James' analysts expect to pro-
duce superior overall results
during the upcoming year.
This year's Best Picks list
includes 11 stocks that have
undergone a rigorous screen-
ing process.
"Although past perfor-
mance does not guarantee fu-
ture results, as of Dec. 9,
2005, our Best Picks list for
2005 (priced on Dec. 10,
2004) has returned 22.2 per-
cent, versus gains in the S&P
500 of 7.7 percent," Henwood
stated. "The S&P 500 is an
unmanaged index of 500
widely held stocks that is gen-
erally considered representa-
tive of the U.S. stock market.
That's why our Best Picks list
generates so much interest;
over the last five years, it has
returned an average of 19.6
percent annually."
Since 2000, a total of 60
stocks have been recommend-
ed through this list. Of this to--
tal, 46 advanced and 14 de-
clined within the recommend-
ed holding period. An investor
would incur commissions to
transact these recommenda-
tions;
According to Henwood, list
submission is limited to ana-
lysts with significant research


experience and a minimum of
three years following the rec-
ommended industry as lead
analyst or five years of total
sell-side experience. Analysts
choose to participate and may
submit only one stock for the
list, which may only contain
one company from any specif-
ic industry.
In addition, because this is a
static, one-year list, only
those companies with a
"Strong Buy" rating from a
Raymond James analyst qual-
ify.
"Each company must also
have a market capitalization
of at least $500 million and a
stock price greater than $10,"
Henwood continued. "If the
stock price is under $20, the
company is required to show
market capitalization of at
least $1 billion. Other condi-
tions, such as trading volume
per day of at least 300,000
shares based on, the last two
months of data, are also con-
sidered."
Henwood reminds investors
that individual results will
vary and transaction costs re-
lated to investing in these
stocks will affect overall per-
formance. There is no assur-
ance that the Best Picks will
achieve the results expected
and investors may incur prof-.
its or losses.
"The best strategy is to in-
vest for the long term. Al-
though incorporating stocks
recommended by our Equity
Research Department into an
overall portfolio may be a


good idea for many investors,
investing in individual stocks,
particularly small- and mid-
cap issues, is not for every-
one. It takes a strong risk tol-
erance, not to mention a good
understanding of market cy-
cles, to keep perspective in a
down market."
"For most investors, only a
small portion of their portfo-
lios should be invested in
more speculative individual
issues. A more conservative,
professionally managed allo-
cation for the rest of their
portfolios should help balance
paper or real losses in individ-
ual issues," Henwood con-
cluded.

Remind yourself. Visual

Stay positive. Negative

Don't overextend yourself.
In short, don't make too many

want to accomplish.
Plan. Think about how you
will achieve your goals, and.,
plan for them accordingly. If
you want to give up your
morning donut, keep cereal
on hand for breakfast instead,
Set realistic goals. Make
resolutions that you can really
attain. Break them down into
small steps, and assess what
steps can be taken to reach
those goals.
Achieve goals slowly. You
don't have to give up smok-
ing and coffee on the same
day. Take small steps over the
course of time.
Remain flexible. Don't just
give up on a resolution if it is-
n't working. Modify it. If you
can't exercise five times a
week, try to exercise three
times a week. It's okay to
make adjustments to your res-
olution as long as you still
stick with it.


Drink and

sing to times

gone by
A tradition of New Year's
celebrations is sipping cham-
pagne at the start of the new
year. In addition, many join in
chorus to sing "Auld Lange
Syne," a song which has be-
come synonymous with the
holiday. And while the song is
quite famous and known
around the world, only a hand-
ful actually know the words,
(humming along and joining
in for the chorus), and far few-
er actually know the signifi-
cance of the song's message.
The song is actually a tran-
scription by poet Robert Bums
of an old Scottish ballad. The
lyrics are written in a classic
dialect and basically com-
memorate friendship, fellow-
ship and hope. The song is
sung at gatherings where the
past is remembered and a good
future is anticipated. Auld
Lang Syne roughly translates
to old long ago.
If you are interested in
singing along this year with
the rest of the crowd, follow-
ing are the first few verses to
"Auld Lang Syne" from
Bums' version of the ballad.
AULD LANG
SYNE
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,,
For auld lang syne,
And surely ye'll be your pint stowp!
And surely I'll be mine!
And we'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
For auld larg syne.

Baby Boomers:

Learn about Osteoporosis
Until recently no one gave much thought to the topic of bone health.
Occasionally you would hear of someone who broke a hip and was never
the same again. As more and more research is being conducted, doctors
are passing on the word to patients that it is vital to take preventative
measures to ensure bone health, ,to preserve quality of life and increase
life expectancy.
RECOGNIZING THE DISEASE


Osteoporosis affects both men and women and is not just a
131392JS-F.
"grandmother's disease." It is a condition characterized by a decrease in
'bone mass and
density, causing
bones to become F
fragile. Those
ar suffering from
osteoporosis are .-
S much more likely
a than others to break
bones following even . .,,
minor. bumps and
falls. The disease can.
limit mobility, and
.com lead to a downward
spiral in physical
5050 health and the quality
131384-F
of life. The ability to
walk, stand up or take /
S care of oneself may
be lost following an
osteoporotic fracture.
According to a-
National Institute of
Health report, one in '
five patients dies.

PREVENTATIVE MEASURES
There are many steps you can take to ensure bone health. Here are a few
recommendations from the Surgeon General and Wallach Surgical, the
distributors of Sunlight Omnisense, an ultrasound-based osteoporosis
testing device:
Eat a diet high in calcium and Vitamin D. Calcium can be found in
dairy products like milk, cheeses, and yogurt and in green leafy
vegetables and soybeans. Vitamin D is produced in the skin by exposure
to the sun, but can also be found in fortified milk and other foods.
Supplements may also be beneficial to boost calcium and Vitamin D
intake.

Inactive individuals are at risk for osteoporosis because exercise is
important to maintain healthy bones. Exercise regularly about 30
minutes per day and include weight-bearing exercises in your fitness
routine to improve strength and balance.
OSTEOPOROSIS SCREENINGS
Your physician'should regularly look for the warning signs of
osteoporosis, including low-trauma bone fractures and back pain from
findetected vertebral fractures. A bone-density test with a device approved
for bone monitoring should be performed regularly. It is not advisable to
wait until age 65 for such testing since every year left untreated increases
the risk. '
Screenings can typically be done in the privacy of your doctor's office.
Diagnostic instruments such as the Omnisense bone sonometer are non-
invasive, involving only a small ultrasound device that sends a
soundwave across the bones in your wrist or finger. The speed' of the
ultrasound wave indicates bone strength, and your osteoporosis status. No
radiation is present, and the procedure is painless. Your doctor will be
able to view a full-color report and share the results with you within 1.0
minutes at a cost of $40 to $50 for those under 65. If you are over 65, the
procedure is covered by Medicare in most cases. With the treatment
options available today, your doctor can set you on a path to improve your
bone strength. It's a small price to pay for adding years of healthy bones
to your life.

Onnisense technology, visit www.healthyboneintbfo.com.
