U.S. 90 flooding

71. Local officials are work-

major flooding area on U.S.

Suwannee River Water
Management District's De-

CP. Dinges said the intersection
of U.S. 90 and Houston is

jor flooding area on U.S. 90 in Live Oak. File Photo Bob Farley said he thinks


the flooding problem is as
bad as the problem area re-
cently addressed at the inter-
section of U.S. 90 and Con-
ner Avenue, which was an
$800,000 project.
"When it floods it's a safe-
ty.issue," Farley said. "U.S.
90 had to be shut down sev-
eral.times, and during hurri-
cane season a couple of
years ago several cars were
flooded along that area."
The project will include
installing more storm drain
inlets to capture Storm wa-
ter, additional pipes in the
ground to channel water and
an expansion of a nearby
storage pond to hold water.
Engineers are. also evaluat-
ing the existing piping sys-

Q Q Do hardwood floors
last longer???

Hardwood lasts longer than
other flooring options and can
S be refinished several times
(solid hardwoods can be refinished an
unlimited number of times) -- or even
restained to change their appearance.
Today's polyurethane finishes allow
installation in kitchens and half baths, as
long as you take precautions to
minimize water spills. Engineered
woods are considered more stable for
kitchen and bath applications. Wood
flooring is available in strips, planks,
and parquet squares.

"handymen" from doing any
work, and Commissioner Bil-
ly Maxwell said it would pre-
vent owners from working on
their own homes and rental
property. The ordinance will
be reviewed for wording
changes. The public hearing
for the matter will be held at
the Feb. 21 meeting.
> 7. Approved a special per-
mit to add four poultry houses
with the requirement that
neighbors of Andrew J. and
Nan Roberts Snider approve
the construction within 100 or
182 feet of their property line.
If the neighbors do not ap-
prove, the permit will not be
granted. County rules prohibit
building intensive agriculture
structures within 300 feet of a
property line.unless owners of
the adjoining property agree
to waive that rule and the
County Commission ap-
proves.
8. Agreed 4/1 with Chair-
man Ivie Fowler against to ad-
vertise to vacate 62nd Circle.
Fowler said the property had
been sold after the request was
made to vacate. He objected to
the county spending the mon-
ey to advertise and hold a pub-
lic hearing and felt the owners
should be responsible. A pub-
lic hearing will be held in the
near future.
> 9. Agreed 4/1 to advertise to
vacate Troy Street, 3rd Street
and a utility alleyway in
O'Brien. Fowler objected to
this also. Commissioner
Randy Hatch said the streets
were never opened and "mag-
nificent pecan trees" now
grow where those streets
would have been since no one
ever requested that they be
opened. He said it would be in
the best interest of the county
to waive the $500 fee to ad-
vertise and for the board to
pay for the advertising and
saler Ip aner,pnce and for;
alldue to the cost of removing
the trees.
> 10. Approved the final plat
for Jackson Heights Subdivi-
sion, an 80.75 acre subdivi-
sion of 15 lots developed by
Daniel Crapps off 129th Road
with paved streets.
S11. Heard a staff report
from County Coordinator
Johnny Wooley regarding sev-
eral issues, some of which
dealt with dairy manure spray
fields and computer technolo-
gy fees.
0 12. Appro ed the sole
provider purchase of a used
fork lift for the count 's miain-


tenance department.
0 13. Approved several mat-
ters for Public Works Director
Jerry Sikes dealing with waste
tire removal, approved adver-
tising for a canopy for the new
fuel depot at Public Works and
discussed upgrading a road
that leads to a radio tower
where the county has its law
enforcement, fire and EMS
antennae. The property is pri-
vately owned, but the county's
fuel provider is refusing to
travel the road any longer to
put fuel into the backup gener-
ator that insures the county
has radio contact at all times
in the event of an emergency.
The county will continue to
look into this matter to find a
way to resolve the issue.
> 14. Approved the bylaws of
the County Fire Board.
15. Approved the lease of a
T-Hanger at the Suwannee
County Airport
> 16. Heard an issue for Well-
born fire fighter Bill Walters
regarding priority for repair of
fire trucks at the Public Works
garage. Sikes assured Walters
the matter would be resolved
the next day to Sikes' satisfac-
tion.
> 17. Approved an Economic
Development Transportation
Fund application for Greency-
cle North Florida
> 18: Approved payment to

MYRA C. REGAN Members of the Suwannee
Publisher Democrat editorial board are Myra
C. Regan, publisher, and Susan K.
SUSAN K. LAMB Lamb, managing editor. Our
Managing Editor View is formed by that board.


OUR VIEW


We alute:

From time to time, the Suwannee De-
mocrat salutes individuals and groups
from our community and area for spe-
cial achievements or accomplishments.
We recognize these special people for
working to help make our community a
better place to live, work and play.
This week we salute:
Suwannee River Water Management
District for all the good it does in this
community and others. Its projects are
well thought-out, reasonable and serve
the public well. Its project in conjunc-
tion with the city of Live Oak to fix the
flooding along Howard Street are long
overdue projects the city could not have
done without SRWMD's assistance.
Keep up the good work, SRWMD!
,First-term Suwannee County Sheriff
Tony Cameron for the leadership he's
shown in steadying an office that was
ripe with strife when he took over.
Sheriff's Office employees say they are
contented and confident in their sheriff.
Cameron has been as good as his word
to constituents during his effort to be
elected...he's been the sheriff and is
clearly visible to the voters, out with his
deputies, handling situations himself,
listening to constituents and there when
needed. No county resident or Sheriff's
Office employee needs to ask who's re-
ally in charge...Sheriff Tony Cameron
is, whether you approve or disapprove!
Suwannee County Commission, Dis-
trict 5 County Commissioner Randy
Hatch and retired Fire Board Chairman
Walt Sage for their dedication to mak-
ing changes in the county's volunteer
fire service. Itwas a long and rocky
road, one that still has a lot of rough
spots to be smoothed out and kept
smooth, but progressing into a safer
road to the future with great promise.
Hatch carried the project to the board
and others while Sage was the mover
and shaker behind the changes that
lead to a Fire Board, which just this
week saw its bylaws approved, which
is a real accomplishment. Along with
that approval is the earlier approval
this month of five new brush trucks and
two tanker trucks that will take the ca-
reer fire department and the VFS to a
new level of service.
Is there an individual or organization in
our community you feel should be. saluted?
If so, please send us their name and why you
think they should be recognized. We must

"She is the prom queen. I'm in the marching band.
She is a cheerleader. I'm sitting in the stands.
She gets the top'bunk. I'm sleeping on the floor.
She's Miss America and I'm just the girl next door."
-Saving Jane

It all starts in high school. There is a smdll group who
are popular and the rest who are not.
The outsiders go through life resenting the insiders.
"The Girl Next Door" is climbing the Billboard charts.
The band Saving;Jane is hot as they were able to capture
class envy in a three-minute song. I play the song con-
stantly and it connects with anyone who has ever been on
the outside.
I've always been an outsider. Most of my friends are
trial lawyers and journalists, which are classic outsider
fields.
Outsiders go into journalism. Insiders go into public re-
lations. .
That is the way it always works.
It is easy to extrapolate the high school world to what
happens in the larger world. When I think of Americans
as the ultimate insiders, it make me understand why oth-
ers would resent the privileges Americans have.
Suddenly, I realize I am an insider. I am well fed and
have economic opportunity. I can vote for my leaders
and do it without being shot at.
There is line in the song that says, "Everybody loves
her, but I just want to hit her."
It describes ho\\ man) people feel about Americans.
Like the "Miss America" of the song, most Americans
are clueless about \\-orld resentment, anger and envy.
I've not traveled extensively and don't really know
what other people think of Americans. I suspect they are
not crazy about us.
It's been a long time since another country sent a gift,
like the Statute of Liberty: I'm not holding my breath
waiting for the sequel.
Especially from France.
I doubt popular kids in high school really thought
about why they were popular. It just happened. In many


ways, it cursed the rest of their lives.
Several years ago, I read a book called, "Is There Life
After High School?" The book said that people who nev-
er faced adversity in high school had.a tough time the
rest of their lives. They never developed toughness from
getting knocked down and getting back up.
Things came too easily to them' When times got bad,
they were unable to cope.
The person who loses a race for class president is more
likely to be president of the United States tharn the person
who won.
The loser has something to prove. The winner doesn't.
Almost all presidents lost an election on the way to the
top. Abraham Lincoln lost a bunch.
Losing made them figure out what they did wrong and
work harder the next time.
When I start thinking about the world through the in-
sider-outsider view, lots of things make sense.
I do business with people in developing countries and
most have a.tremendous work ethic.
I know plenty of hard-working Americans, but the
people from developing countries have an edge to them.
They will work longer and harder.
Like a high school outsider trying to show up the in-
siders.
Somewhere in life, the outsiders start to take over. They
have that extra motivation that someone with privilege
doesn't get. When you think of Americans as the ultimate
insiders, it does not bode well for our long-term future.
We need to get our mojo back.
Im also starting to understand why the insiders don't
relate to the outsider's angst. The insiders do not realize
that it exists.
I don't want to be hated for being an American. I did-
n't ask to grow up in a country of plenty. It just hap-
pened.
The world view suddenly makes sense when I put it
through the prism of high school popularity.
As far as the world is concerned, we are all '"MNis
America" and the rest of the world sees itself as The Girl
Next Door."

Probably most of us want to be
really good'at something. I've al-
ways wanted to play the guitar as
well as Jose Feliciano. You would
think it wouldn't be all that hard.
There are only six strings and they
are always in the same place. Fur-
thermore, Felciano is blind and
can't even see what he's doing.
. Some people would like to be re-
ally good at painting, singing, play-
ing golf and other conventional as-


pirations.
Then comes Chris Lyons. Last week in Sydney, Aus-
trala, he recited the first 4,400 digits of pi. He did this at
the World Mind Sports Games in two and a half hours.
My first thought was, that's two and a half hours he can
never get back.
If you don't, know, pi is the formula for calculating'the
area of a circle. Most of us laymen only know pi as 3.14.
The formula is pi multiplied by the radius squared.
In other words, if the rathole that our government toss-
es money down had a circular opening that was 100 feet
across, the area of that opening would be roughly 7,850
square feet. ,1 don't think they have a formula for how
deep that hole is.
But Lyons isn't even close to wearing the championship
belt in this regard. Nosiree bob. In July, a Japanese psy-
chiatric counselor recited pi to 83,431 decimal places.
So does this ability produce energy? Does it clean up
polluted streams? Does it bring peace? Will it'help cure ill-
nesses? Did it impact world hunger? Did it enlighten any-
one? And how many people committed suicide while-lis-
tening to these people practice?
Based on what I found orf the Internet, there must be a
large group of people fascinated by pi.
There are books written about pi and apparently there
is\a movie, too. Pi has been traced back to the Old Testa-
ment to 1st Kings and the building of Solomon's Temple.
I'm not trying to be sacriligeous here, but maybe rat holes
go back that far as well at least as they involve "sacred

COwVS."
There are pi clubs and pi conventions. Boy I bet they are
a rowdy bunch after a couple of drinks.
Maybe being able to remember and reciting all those
number, is just the surface of much greater skills. The
news 'tory that described this prowess did not allude to
any other skills, but maybe when these guys are out on a
date they can impress their girlfriends with reciting "War
and Peace" or maybe "Gone With The Wind." But I
would guess some young lady would say, "Frankly my
dear, I don't give a damn."
I think good memory is valuable. But only, if you are
remembering stuff that has practice application like who
borrowed your hedge trimmers last and where did you
put your cordless drill. Certainly remembering directions
is a great asset, especially if you are in downtown Atlanta
where the streets are laid out like a bowl of .spaghetti.
I've noticed that as we get older, we can remember
more long term stuff but short term events may elude us.
SI don't know why that is so. I can remember who I sat be-
hind in first grade and what I paid for my first ball glove,
but in recent weeks I bought a package of fish lures and
now I can't recall where I put them.
I don't see any socially redeeming value nor any practi-
cal application for being able to recite pi out to so many
decimal points. Actually, being able to name all of the U.S.
presidents in order has very little marketable value either.
And there's only 42 of them. If you need to know, just go
to google.com and type in "how many U.S. presidents?"
It will also tell you what their favorite books are. Or per-
haps in one instance, what his only book was.
But recently, I read in a health magazine where, as we
get older, we should actually practice memory skills to
keep us sharp.
This makes'sense in the "use it or lose it" bureau. Of
course I already know all those pi numbers stretching
from here to Selma. I just don't know their order. I won't
even attempt to go thousands of decimal points. For me
that truly would be "pi in the sky.'

Legislator
State Senator Rod Smith
has been named Legislator of
the Year by the Florida Devel-
opmental Disabilities Council
for his work to ensure that
healthcare services to Flori-
da's disabled population are
not reduced by recent Medic-
aid reforms.
During the 2005 Special
Session on Medicaid, Senator
Smith was at the forefront in
staving off a backdoor attempt
to expand mandatory HMO
enrollment to every Medicaid
recipient in the state. Further,
Senator Smith championed ef-
forts to protect services -to
Floridians with developmental
disabilities by excluding them
from the reform's new spend-
ing cap.
"When I'm given the choice
between doing what's in the
best interest of the HMO or
the healthcare consumer, the
choice is pretty cut and dry,"
said Senator Smith. "We
should all remember who los-
es when we throw our most
vulnerable to HMOs who are
out to maximize their profits."
"'Senator Smith has been a
true champion for the, devel-


of the Year


Senate aj~are of the issues that
impact the developmentally
disabled. We are fortunate to
have such a tireless and pas-
sionate advocate as Senator
Smith on our side."

Football receipts fall in 2005


Two Suwannee Lady Dog lifters qualify


Janet Schrader-Seccafico
Democrat Reporter


Bulldog football is a major deal in
Suwannee County. Gate receipts affect
every sport at Suwannee High. In good
years when the fans are
thick, gate receipts high and Gat
there are play-off games G
for the Dogs, there is extra
money for all the other f
sports at Suwannee High. f
This year Suwannee's gate
receipts were off by
$1,300.
"Football provides the
majority of the money for
all sports at Suwannee
High," said SHS athletic
director Randy Ethridge..


"If football receipts are up, the extra
money becomes part of the. athletic operat-
ing budget," said SHS principal Dawn
Lamb. "If football is really well attended,
the extra money goes into the athletic fund
and can be used for non-revenue sports.
But if gate receipts are down, football is
the sport that feels the real impact. Football
depends on gate receipts for uniforms and
many other necessities."


Non-revenue sports at Suwannee High
include tennis, golf and bowling. These
sports do not charge admission so do not
generate any income for themselves. But
they still need uniforms, traveling money
and other money to operate.
Ethridge said basketball should be in the

thousands of fans to fill the
bleachers and cheer for the
Dogs. With gate receipts off
and no play-off games, the
over-all budget for athletics


at Suwannee High has little extra. Last sea-
son \ as the second season in a row Suwan-
nee did not make the playoffs. Play-off
money is often the extra money the athletic
programs are looking for. /
"Play-off games provide a windfall and
the extra money goes to other sports,"
Lamb said.

Manhattan Piano Trio to perform tonight at St. Luke's


Three graduates of the Juil-
liard School decided there is
too much of this country for
New York City to hold the
lion's share of classical music.
So, they started touring differ-
ent parts of the country in a
minivan in search of new au-
diences for their music. An
odd endeavor it might seem
for a pianist, violinist and cel-
list, but for these members of
The Manhattan Piano Trio, it
is a passion if not a mission.
If you .have plans tonight,
you might want to change
them. These three young and
renowned chamber musicians
are currently on a three week
tour of the South and are com-
ing to Live Oak. They will
perform at St. Lukes Episco-
pal Church tonight Jan. 20 at
7:30 p.m.
The Manhattan Piano Trio
(MPT) is rapidly gaining
recognition as one of the most
versatile and exciting emerg-
ing ensembles coming out of
New York City. The trio com-
prises Milana Bqhl (piano),
Dmitry Lukin (violin) and
Dmitry Kouzov (cello). The
two "Dmitrys" are from St.
Petersburg, Russia and met
Milana, the founding member
of MPT, literally "on the
steps" of The Juilliard School
during January of 2004.
The Trio members have per-
formed at some of the leading
concert halls in the world. Just
the past 18 months has seen
them give over 100,concerts
along the eastern seaboard, in-
cluding their debut perfor-
mance at Alice Tully Hall at
Lincoln Center in NYC.
"It is the obligation of
chamber musicians to intro-
duce their music to a new au-
dience," Reggie Bahl, the
New York based manager of
MPT, said. "Not many people
follow classical music. The
idea is to appeal to such folks
and at the same time keep, the.
true classical music lovers in
mind. .Our program in Live:
Oak will be showcasing solo,
duo and trio repertoire, some-
thing you will not get in a typ-
ical chamber music concert,
Bahl said. "I know music


Q.


h no o


.lovers here will share my ;en-
thusiasm for these musicians."
The program is billed as an
"Enchanted Evening of Mu-
sic" and the musicians would
be performing captivating


works from different musical
periods.
St. Luke's Episcopal
Church is located at 1391 SW
Eleventh St. For tickets and
more information about the


concert please contact the
church at 386-362-1837.

You may think that because
the temperature has been a lit-
tle cool lately, there isn't


i. nuch you can do in your
.-" Larden at this time of
ear. However, here in
S Florida there is always
something we can
do. Now is a good
Time to begin trans-
planting plants that
you want to move
in your landscape.
SYou will need to replant
them as soon as possible and
keep them watered well. Do
not use fertilizers or do any
major pruning on the plants
you are transplanting. You can
remove diseased or dead ma-


trial at this time. You will
want to finish your transplant-
ing by mid-February.
February is the time to
prune your roses. You can
cut them back by 1/3 the size
of the plant. Remember to
remove any diseased leaves
from the plant and clean up
any leaves that have fallen
on the ground around the
rose. Dormant shade and
fruit trees can be pruned at
this time also. You do not
want to prune spring-bloom-
ing plants at this time. Plants
in this group are dogwoods,
redbuds, azaleas, spirea and
fringe trees. Don't be in a
big hurry to prune the dead
portions on your perennials.
We may still have some cold
weather, so waiting until the
end of the month or early


March would be good.
You can begin to plant some
seeds indoors to be planted in
March. Some plants to try are
peppers and'tomatoes. It usu-
ally takes about four to six
weeks to have plants large
enough to plant outdoors.
Even at this time of year there
are plants we can be adding to
our gardens. Annuafs you
might want to, try are carna-
tions, pansies, petunias, snap-
dragons, delphiniums, lark-
spur, dianthus, viola, fox-
gloves, baby's breath and
dusty miller. Vegetables to
plant now are beets, broccoli,
cabbage, carrots, cauliflower,
celery, mustard, bunching
onions, English peas, potatoes,
radishes, lettuce, collards and
turnips.
It is also time to get your


ny, create e programming and
collaboration. For more infor-
mation please visit their web-
site at http://www.manhattan-

spring garden ready. Plan your
sites and get the ground tilled
at least two weeks before
planting. Use raked leaves and
grass clippings that have com-
posted as an excellent organic
material to add to your garden
soils. If you have a major
problem with weeds, mid-Feb-
ruary may be the time to apply
pre-emergence herbicides to
control them. When to apply
depends on the soil tempera-
ture so remember to read and
follow the instruction careful-
ly.
So get your pencils and
pads out, plan your spring gar-
dens and plant the seeds you
want to add to your dream
garden in a few weeks. Enjoy
these lazy days of winter, for
when spring arrives, there is
no resting for a gardener.

tem to ensure the pipes are
large enough.
The District's Project
Manager Patrick Webster
said there are not enough in-
lets and the ones that do ex-
ist are located in the wrong
places.
Currently, the water in the
area is being channeled to the
large retention area close to
Langford stadium, and Dinges
said a larger storage pond is
needed because the current
one is beyond capacity.
Webster said the project will
call for the water to be chan-
neled into the retention area at
the comer of Duval Street and
Scriven Avenue. However, the
holding pond will need to be
expanded to keep up with the
capacity, he said.
Eutaw Utilities, Inc. has
contracted with the city of
Live Oak to design the pro-
ject. When the plan designs
are about 60 percent com-
plete the Department of
Transportation (DOT) will


" *


handle the land acquisition
to obtain property around
the retention area to expand
the holding pond.
Webster said DOT is
scheduled to begin land ac-
quisition around April if
everything goes as planned.
"It could take DOT up to a
year to complete the land ac-
quisition, and then construc-
tion on the project will begin
by next spring or summer, if
everything goes as sched-
uled," Webster said.
Once the construction be-
gins, it should take 60 to 90
days to complete the project.
Webster said the District
is providing $135,000 for
the design and construction
of the project-- which is half
-of the cost -- and the city of
Live Oak, is paying the oth-
er half. DOT will purchase
the parcels for the holding
pond expansion.
The U.S. 90 and Houston
Avenue project is part of the
Live Oak Storm Water Utili-
ty Project designed to ad-
dress flooding problems in


the city of Live Oak over the
next five years.
Farley said the city passed
a storm water fee to raise
funds to address the 28 ma-
jor flooding areas in the city.
The District is providing
$100,000 annually over five
years to address the areas,
and the city of Live Oak will
match those funds.
The city has also gotten a
low-interest loan from the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection to fund
the $2.7 million project, Far-
ley said.
"Live Oak is in a bowl; we
have no place for the water
to drain," Farley said. "DOT
and the District is stepping
up to the plate to address the
issue. This is good for the
citizens of Live Oak."
Farley said he hopes all of
the major flooding areas in
Live Oak will be address
within five years.

Cub Scout Pack 408 members present Christmas


cards and sing carols at Suwannee Health Care


Article by Al Plymel and
Tom Burnett.
Cub Scouts have long been an
active part of the communities
in which they live, and for our
local Pack 408, they are no dif-
ferent. We live in an age where
we need to slow down for a re-
flection of what's important.
We are so fast-paced in our
progressive society that we of-
ten fail to remember those in
nursing homes who were so
much a part of yesterday's
life. The Cub Scouts did.
Scouts and some family
members visited Suwannee
Health Center, 1620 E. Helven-
ston Ave., Live Oak on Dec. 22
to sing carols and present the
residents with home-made
Christmas cards. Wolf Den
Leader Al Plymel organized
the event. The group met at the
center at 5:30 p.m., just prior to
the residents' dinner hour, and
setup at one end of the dining
hall.
In addition to Cub Scouts, a
Girl Scout joined the group.
She provided a needed strong
voice as most of the Cubs sang
softly. Also joining the group
was Patricia Peaden, a seventh
grader at Suwannee Middle
School.
This was the second year for

the ensemble to entertain the
residents, and it was difficult
to tell just who enjoyed it
more!
During the short intermis-
sion, the Cub Scouts walked
around the room as well as in
the hallway. They gave each
resident a hand-made
card. Additionally, two scouts


knocked on doors to give cards
to those that are restricted to
their rooms. Many 'smiles,.
hugs, and handshakes were ex-
changed.
The Cub Scouts, a few of
them only a young age of,6 or
7, learned the real reason for
the season: TheiChristm~s Sto-
ry of Christ being borri. They


also learned how to share that
gift with others. They only
needed to take the time to do a
good deed or share a kind word
to share that gift.
God and Country are the
backbone of scouting and young
scouts taking a few moments to
share with the ones in nursing
homes should, make both

Thomas Robley Burnett,
Webelos den leader
Cub Scout Pack 408 held
its December pack meeting
and Christmas party at the
First Presbyterian Church,
421 White Avenue, during
which time many of the boys
received awards earned dur-
S ing the prc ious month. i
Bradley Moore's parents
were on hand to see him re-
ceive the rank of Webelos.
He is a member of the Cobra
Patrol and is in his second
year of the, Webelos pro-
gram. Moore has now begun
working toward earning the
Arrow of Light award. The
Arrow of Light is the high-
est award available in the
Cub Scouting program: It is
the only rank that can be

worn on the uniform when
in Boy Scouts. The only oth-
er Cub Scout recognition
that can be worn as a Boy
Scout is his religious award.

Elder Floridians to gain
convenient access to
legal advice and referrals
toll-free, 888-895-7873
Department of Elder Affairs
(DOEA) Secretary Carole
Green recently announced the
kick-off of the statewide Senior
Legal Helpline. The helpline is
funded through a two-year fed-
eral grant from the Administra-
tion on Aging within the U.S.
Department of Health and Hu-
man Services in the amount of
$150,000. Bay Area Legal Ser-
vices, Inc., of Tampa, in part-
nership with f.OEA, has devel-
oped the new toll-free helpline
to increase access to legal ad-
vice and referrals for under-
served Florida seniors.
"The Senior Legal Helpline
is a great resource for Florida's
older adults who have questions
about legal issues," said Secre-
tary Green. "This helpline will
be a convenient way for seniors
to get connected to information,
no matter where they live in the
state."
"Our experience in running
the Legal Aid Line in a five-
county area gives us valuable

home games do not provide
as much extra money as
away play-off games because
FHSAA and the other team
get a large cut of the rev-
enue. If the team has to trav-
el for the play-offs, Suwan-
nee football gets a cut of the
gate receipts plus traveling
money.
Lamb also stated Suwan-
nee sports are in good
health. A large part of the
reason for that is the hard
work put in by various
booster clubs affiliated with
Suwannee sports.
"Booster clubs are really
important," Lamb said.
"They create a lot of oppor-
tunities for kids they other-
wise would not have."
Booster clubs run most of
the concessions stands.
Wrestling, baseball, softball
and volleyball depend on
sales at the concessions to
help fund team travel, feed
the players at away games
and pay for award banquets.
Lamb said football conces-
sions are run by the
NJROTC And the Suwannee

The Dogs began the
fourth quarter on a 9-0 run
and jumped out to an eight-
point lead. The Bullldogs'
were up by four with only a
minute and a half left in the
game. According to Martel-
lo, the guys controlled their
own destiny.
It was 51 to 47 Suwannee
with a minute and a half left.
The Dogs turned it over and
Ridgeview hit a three to cut
the lead to a lonely one
point, 51-50. Suwannee
missed their try and
Ridgeview took the lead 51-
52. The Dogs countered
with a score and led 53-52:
.But Ridgerie\e scored the
tinal basket of the game
with about 30 seconds left.
"We played well, but ob-
viously, we were two points
shy of playing well enough
to win," Martello said.
Nate Herring led the scor-
ing with 18. Jevon Smith
scored 10. Mario Hawthorne
scored nine points. Dustin
Doe scored seven. Ryan
Hight had four, TJ Brinson
three and Keith Brown
scored two points.
"We. took Ridgeview to
overtime at their place,"
Martello said. "They shot a
phenomenal 24 out of 27
free throws for the game
that night to beat us. I think
we outplayed them tonight.
A couple of guys didn't
shoot the ball like they are
capable and'we threw the
ball away too many times.
"I believe we are one of
the most "talented teams" in
the state," Martello said.
"That's different than being
one of the "best". Hopeful-
ly, we will become one of
the best teams before the
state playoffs begin the sec-
ond week of February. I be-
lieve we will."

old friend.
TNT Fitness was opened
by Tony and Trey Chauncey
(hence the name TNT) seven
years ago in what is known
as The Plaza. Tony, along
with his wife Stacey, ran the
facility with a members first
philosophy. We all remem-
ber the good times had in
this small facility in the
Plaza and. also how the
heavy rains would flood the
floor. It did not matter,- we
kept coming and told our
friends, to follow.
Soon the choice was made
to move to 209 West Howard
Street. We all simply gave
directions to our gym by
saying look for the Wrigley
Spearmint sign.
This is where. I came in.
Tony offered me and my
wife the chance to own the
place. Since I was a TNT
gym rat I could not refuse.
The gym was not the decid-
ing factor to buy, it was the

people. It was kinda like be-
ing asked to help serve your
family (no one could turn'
that down). I simply tried to
pick up where Tony and
Stacey left off, by putting
the members first.
This is where I was truly
blessed, those I thought I
was taking care of were ac-
tually taking care of me.
Here are just a few exam-
ples.
One month after taking
over the place, Holly. deliv-
ered our second child. This
meant I would have to be at
the hospital and away from.
the gym for a few days. Tim
and Sue Roberts (paying
members) volunteered to
take the gym towels home
and wash and fold them for
us. These same two people
gave us Our family Christ-
mas tree when I told them I
.was headed to Wal-Mart to
pick one up. They never
asked, for anything and
would not let me pay.
One time all three tread-


mills were not working at
the same time and the repair
man was stalling. Very few
complained and many of-
fered to help but everyone
remained members. This al-
lowed me to purchase four
new ones. One final exam-
ple was every day my
daughter and I would come
by the gym before school
and straighten up as well as
pick up the towels. We
could always counton Nicky
Tsacrious (sorry for butcher-
ing your last name) to be
there with kinds words for
my daughter.
While the people served
the facility, the facility was
also able to serve us. It not
only gave us a place to im-
prove our health, meet new
friends, and get away from
day to day life, it did more.
Remember when the big
hurricane came and turned
everyone's electricity and
water off? For some reason
our friend never lost power
or water and became=almost
i ,,'"


a shelter. Many of our mem-
bers brought their families
for showers and to watch
TV.
These are just a few exam-
ples of how this community
takes care of people. There
is no way I could ever name,
them all. While closing the
doors I was able to reflect on
these and many more things.
I came to the following con-
clusions: (1) Live Oak is a
great place to live. (2) Our
members deserve the facility
they now have and they are
the reason it is now here. (3)
Treat people, fair and they
will bless you more than you
can ever dare to dream. (4)
TNT has not gone awa,y it
has simply evolved into
Suwannee Health & Fitness.
(4) I can never say thank
you enough to our members.
It is my hope and desire to
keep these same principles
intact as I run our new gym.
Hopefully in time I will be
writing about having to ex-
pand once again.

ing Eastside a 2-0 half-time
lead. Eastside would get
their third and final goal
early in the second half as
the Suwannee keeper chal-
lenged a Lady Ram forward
that had broken through the
defense, nearly stealing the
ball off her feet, but the ball
got past and Eastside was
up 3-0. Suwannee had a
few scoring chances but
were unable to put up many
quality shots against the
stingy Eastside defense. "I
thought we played a decent
game, given the quality of
the opponent," said Coach.
Kathy Wood. They have a
solid defense, an awesome
keeper, and dangerous for-
wards. They just had too
many weapons for us to
handle tonight."

"The light
It sure is a good feel-
ing when "the light"
comes on! Have you
ever read some direc-
tions (maybe directions
on. how to program a
cell phone) and had a
problem understanding
Them but all of a sud-
:, '.den you said, "O, I
David H. Matier see!" You didn't mean
you saw with your eyes
but you now understood. You were frustrated
trying to figure out the directions and then "it
came to you;" it brought a sense of happiness.
In Nehemiah 8 the leaders of the people
read God's Word "distinctly, and gave the
sense, and caused them to understand the
reading" (verse 8). In the same chapter (verse
12), you will note, the people went away hap-
py "because they had understood the words
that were declared unto them." These people
had heard the Law for the first time! Now
there are many reasons why God's Word
should bring you joy and many of these rea-
sons are set forth in Psalm 119 (the first word


" came on
of the Psalm is "blessed" a synonym for hap-
py).
As a person understands the Bible it will
help him to clean up his act; helping him to
avoid sin as he applies the Word to his life
(Psalm 119:9, 11). As your understanding of
the Word develops you will have many an-
swers to questions others will ask (Psalm
119:42-the Holy Spirit will bring the answers
to remembrance but you can't remember
something you haven't studied-John 14:26; II
Timothy 2:15). Knowledge of the Bible helps
you to understand the "why" of problems that
will come intoyour life (Psalm 119:71).
God's words taken in give "light" and "un-
derstanding" (Psalm 119:130). The more
knowledgeable you become of the Word of
God the more awestruck you will be by its
contents (Psalm 119:161). And these verses
just begin to scratch the surface of the reasons
for the joy that comes from having an under-
standing of the Scriptures.

The Desired Mark


Are you in need of turning over a new
leaf or a new beginning? You see, too
many people have sought year-after-year to
turn over a new leaf only to find failure
each time because they set before them-
selves humanly impossible tasks.
Everyone has good intentions. Someone
has said, "The road to hell is paved with
good intentions."
"I'll never do that again," they say, and
go right out and do the same thing again
right away! Good intentions will not fit a
person for heaven for that very reason;
very seldom, if ever, are they able to live
up to all those good intentions (Romans
3i23, sin = missing the mark as an archer
misses the bull's eye, the well intentioned
person who turns over the new leaf doesn't,
not because of a lack of good intentions,
but because of inability, hit the desired
mark).
Oh, to never have a sinful thought! It
would be wonderful to never lose oneis
temper! It would be nice to have complete
control over your.mouth fi not only what


goes in but what you let gush forth out of
it (James 3:2, 8-11).
This is why Christ died for you some-
one had to pay the difference (Romans
6:23; John 3:16). You couldn't, no matter
how well intended, keep up the 'good
works' you couldn't achieve the goal (if
you could there would have been no need
of a sacrificial death on your behalf).
Mankind missed the mark, Christ paid the
price, making a new beginning possible -
but note: it is a "new beginning" not just
turning over a new leaf. Jesus said, "Ex-
cept a man be born again, he cannot see the
kingdom of Godi (John 3:3). The new birth
takes place when a person comes to the re-
alization that he/she can not manufacture
the experience and simply resigns his/her
life in simple belief in the death, burial and
resurrection of Jesus Christ (I Corinthians
15:1-4).

can. But then .again they also
tend to repeat loudly and often
how turning 40, "Doesn't both-
er me at all." Methinks they
protesteth too much..."
Then, right in the middle, a
new group wakes up each day
to discover we are 50.
"Fifty," I read recently in a
business journal, "is the new
40." Essentially, and my infor-
mal observations seem to con-
firm the theory, the 50s have
eclipsed the 40s as the "Power
Decade." Fifty is where it is
happening today. Fifty is the
epicenter of the boomer world.
Productivity, achievement,
influence, and personal mar-
ketability are shifting into the
50s right along with the

..Tis is such a simple question, and yet its
... simplicity obscures its depth. In the
context of ordering dinner at a restaurant
yoU n t there is nothing particularly profound
-about this question. But in the context of
our lives this is perhaps the deepest and
most important question we can ask
ourselves. Do we want fame or fortune,
or a simple life devoted to ser ing God?
^ DDo we want to share our life with just one
person or do we want a big family ?
And, can we even answer this question
without knowing what others may w ant
for us? In other words, is it important to
4 know what our family and friends want
~. for us, or can we decide wbat w e ant on
our owvn? Is it important for us to know
what God wants for us, and from us?
Hlow we answer this question certainly
speaks volumes about us. Whilen %we are
hungry, we are likely to \want food, and
-when we are spiritually hungry, we are
likely to \want God. We should think long
and hard about this simple question and
ever harder about its answer, for they have
the power to transform our lies.

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of
fine pearls, 'iho, oh finding one pearl of great value, went
and sold all that he had and bought it.
-R.S. V. Matthew 13:45-46 t

SStart the day right

If you want to have a good day and who doesn't? it
helps to start your day with a positive affirnnation, such
Sas: "Today is going to be a great day," or "It's great to be
alive." Better yet: "Thank you God for giving me this
\\v / / wonderful day." Whether we actually feel this way or not.
saying it will help put us in a more positive frame of
mind. It is well-established that the simple act of smiling
activates certain neural pathways that make us feel
happier, while the act of frowning activates pathways that
can make us feel depressed. Jumping out of bed in the
morning with a happy heart and a big smile on our face
will make us feel happy and energetic. whereas moping
around and mumbling about how lousy we feel will
understandably make us feel lousy, and perhaps
depressed. We must act first, and then the appropriate
feeling \\ill come, not the other way around. That is, if we
Swant to be energetic \we should start moving and acting
energetically. If we sit around waiting for the energetic
felling to come, we will probably be disappointed. We
should start acting happy and energetic, and soon \\e will
discover that we truly are.

A Cheerful heart is a good medicine, but a Downcast
spirit dries up the bones.

'Hue'


Interior design tips for selecting the right


paint color
(ARA) Although walls can't
talk, the colors you choose for a
room say quite a bit about the
space and how it feels to your
family and friends. Color. can
enhance creativity, provide a
feeling of warmth and coziness,
or create a sense of relaxation.
But how do you select the
perfect paint color to bring out
the personality you want your
room to convey?
Dutch Boy color specialists
field many questions from home
decorators, interior designers
and homeowners like you
regarding the basics of color and
paint selection techniques. Here
are some of the most frequently
asked questions (and their
answers) to help you get started
on your next weekend project.
How do I determine the
amount of paint needed for a
particular job?
Measure both the height and
width of your walls. Then, add
the width of all the walls in the
room together. Multiply this sum
by the height of one wall from
floor to. ceiling. Take this'total
number and subtract the total
area of your doors, windows,
Sarchways; etc. to get the exact
Area of wall space you will paint.
A good rule of thumb to follow
is that a flat surface usually
requires one gallon for every
400 square feet.
According to the Paint
Coatings Research Panel, the
typical paint project requires
2.38 gallons. For the perfect
project-sized paint container, try
the new Ready to Roll from
Dutch Boy which comes filled
with 2.5 gallons tinted to the
color of your choice. The
container has a built-in roller
tray which eliminates the
continual pouring of paint into a
separate roller tray which is so
easy to step in and spill over.
Just dip the roller in the paint at
the bottom of the container, roll
it along the built-in tray and you
are ready to paint. Plus, a built-
in roller tray makes clean up a
snap as you just snap back on
the lid to either store the paint or
recycle the unit.
How do I select the best color
for my room?
The first step is to examine
your furniture, window
treatments, and other
accessories. From the colors
represented in these items,
choose your favorite colors and
visit your local retailer to obtain
coordinating color chips. Put the
chips in the room and look at
them both in the daylight and at
night to see the effect lighting
has on the colors. You may want
to even buy a quart of your top
choice and test it on one of your
walls.
According to Donna
Schroeder, Color Specialist for
Dutch Boy, because painting is
simple and inexpensive, you
may want to experiment with
daring colors that you might not
choose for more costly items
like furniture or room
furnishings. '"Try out one of the
bold paint colors that are the
latest trend in room design such
as a brown, blue or red," says
Schroeder.
For those who are a bit
intimidated about using a bold
color on all four walls,
Schroeder notes it can always be
used for an accent wall. "This
would allow you to introduce a
small area of bold color and then
as your comfort level increases,
begin incorporating a larger
number of dark colors into your
room."
How do colors affect
a room's size?
Strong, warm colors like reds,
oranges and yellows have the
tendency to close a space. Called
advancing colors, these hues


to bring personality to your room
or hunter green, also tend to may want to consider choosing What color should I

Chilly outside? Warm up with some comfort food!


By Jamie Oliver
(ARA) When it gets
chilly outside, my wife Jools
goes mad for this stew and the
kids love it, too. A side of
braised spinach with
chocolate clafoutis with
caramelized oranges for
dessert are the perfect comfort
food companions for this
delicious meal.
The beef stew is pretty
straightforward, but I've
added squash and Jerusalem
artichokes, which partly cook
into the sauce, making it
really sumptuous with an
unusual and wonderful flavor.
Don't worry if you can't get
hold of either of these
ingredients. You can add

various root vegetables and
swap the potatoes for pearl
barley or butter beans. And if
wine doesn't happen to be
that close to home then a little
stock, water or even a mild
beer or Guinness can be really
good substitutes.
The other great thing about
this stew is that it gets, put
together very quickly. This is
partly to do with the fact that
I don't spend any time
browning off the meat. Even
though this goes against all.of
my training, I experimented
with two batches of meat and
I browned one first before
putting it in the stew and just
used the other batch straight
in the pot. The latter turned

with Daniel Crapps Agency


out to be the better stew, so
I've stopped browning off the
meat for all my stews these
days.
A lovely thing to add when
serving the stew up is a
sprinkling of gremolata. This
is a mixture of lemon zest,
garlic and rosemary, and as
soon as it hits the warm stew
it really brings the flavors to
life, so do try it.

-Beef Stew Serves 4
Olive oil
Knob of butter
1 onion, peeled and
finely chopped
1 handful of fresh sage
leaves
1.75 pounds
stewing steak
or beef skirt
Sea salt and freshly
ground black pepper

2 parsnips, peeled

4 carrots, peeled
and halved
Optional: 1/2
butternut squash,
halved, deseeded
and diced into
2-inch chunks
Optional: 1 handful
of Jerusalem artichokes,
peeled and halved
1 pound new potatoes
Optional. 2 to 3
artichokes, peeled
and quartered
2 tablespoons tomato puree

1 cup beef or \
vegetable stock

onion and
all of the
sage
leaves for
3 or 4
minutes.
Toss the
meat in a
little
seasoned
flour, then
add it to
the pan
with all
the
vegetables,
the tomato
puree,
wine and
stock and
gently stir
together.
Season
generously
with black pepper and just a
little salt. Bring to a boil,
place a lid on top, then put
into the oven at 320 degrees
until the meat is tender.
Sometimes this takes 3 hours,
sometimes 4. This can depend
on what cut of meat you're
using and how fresh it is. The
only way to test it is to mash
up the meat, and if it falls
apart easily then it's ready.
Many times when I haven't
got time to make dinner in the
evening, I just put this in the
oven after breakfast, then
clean up and go out for the
day knowing that, I'll be
coming home to a lo' el\
dinner. Or, I just program the
cook time and temperature for'
the beef stew on the
"Favorites /Cycle" on my.
Amana range. That way, Jools
can get dinner started with the
push of a button.
Once it's cooked, you can
turn the oven down to about
200 degrees and just hold it
there until you're ready to eat.
With my Amana range, I just


put the meat in the separate
warming oven and it keeps it
at just the right temperature
while I prepare the rest of my
meal.
The best way to serve this
is by. ladling big spoonfuls
into bowls, accompanied by a
glass of French red wine and
some really fresh, warmed
bread. It's lovely when torn
up and shared. Sprinkle some
of the gremolata mix over the
stew before eating. Just the
smallest amount will make a
world of difference -- and
:remember, you can always go
back for more so don't go
over the top.

Perfect raised Spinach
The simplest way to cook
spinach is in a pan with a
little olive oil, butter, a
grating of nutmeg and a tiny
Squeeze of lemon juice with a
lid on to let it steam. This will
taste great, and it goes with
just about anything -- pasta,
fish or meat. If there is any
excess moisture when the

Maximize your tax return tiS


(ARA) There are two
approaches to doing taxes.
One is to wait until the last
minute and rush through
them, crossing your fingers
that you don't owe the
government an unexpectedly
large chunk of money.
Judging from the lines at post
offices across the country at
midnight on April 15, there
are many, many people who
take this approach.
Considering that a little
advance planning can save
you money and headaches,
the second approach being
organized and taking control
of your taxes is a better way
to go.
"It's also important to know
that when taxes go unpaid,
the IRS can place a lien on
your assets. Unpaid tax liens
can remain on your credit
report for up to 15 years,
while paid tax liens can
remain on your credit report
for seven years from the date
paid. Both have a negative
impact on your.credit score,"
said Maxine Sweet, vice
president of public education
for Experian, the national
consumer credit reporting
company.
Having time to pull
together the information you
need, analyze it and calculate
your taxes means you won't
be frantically scrambling to
find your W-2 form the day
before taxes are due. Starting
early also gives you time to
double check your tax return
for any mathematical errors,
and to make sure you've
claimed all the deductions for
which you qualify.
Tax laws and people's tax
situationschange from year to
year, so you may be entitled
to different deductions this
year than last year. Major life
changes often trigger a
modification of deductions, or
there may be deductions that
you have missed in past
years.. Here are a few
examples of common, but
often-overlooked,; deductions --,
Check with your financial
advisor if you have questions,
or you can get more
information from the IRS
Web site or helpline.
State and local sales tax -
If you itemize your taxes, you
may choose to deduct state
and local sales taxes instead
of state and local income
taxes. While this deduction
mainly benefits taxpayers
with a state or local sales tax
but no income tax, it may
give a larger deduction to any
taxpayer who paid more in
sales tax than income taxes.
Charitable donations -
You can deduct financial
contributions as well as "in
kind" donations of things like
clothing and household items.
Education expenses A
variety of education-related
costs may be deductible,
including student loan interest
and education costs incurred
to maintain or improve job
skills.
Disaster or theft -
Unfortunately, lots of people
may be using this deduction
on their 2005 taxes. If your
home was damaged by floods,
ice storms, earthquakes, other
natural disasters or theft, you
may be able to deduct what
your insurance doesn't cover.
Job search expenses If
you were job hunting this
year, you can deduct most
expenses related to the
search, including cost of
resumes, phone expenses,
postage, career counseling
and travel to and from your
interviews.
Medical expenses The
threshold for deducting
medical expenses is high, but


if you've accrued a lot of
medical bills you may
qualify.
Tax preparation You
can claim the cost of tax
preparation software or the -
cost of having a professional
do your taxes.
Real estate Your
mortgage interest is
deductible, and if you
refinanced this year, you may


be eligible to deduct some of
the costs associated with the
loan. If you sold your main
residence, you may be able to
exclude up to $250,000 of
gains ($500,000 for married
taxpayers filing jointly) from
your income tax return.
These are just a few of the
legal tax deductions; there
may be others you can claim.
"Be sure you have proper
documentation to back up any
deductions you claim," says
Sweet. And remember, while


it may seem like a windfall to
get a large tax refund, your
goal should really be to break
even. If you're getting a
refund, you've basically been
loaning the government
money without interest.
While you're focused on
financial issues, take a few
more minutes to check your
credit report and make sure
you're on track with your
financial plans. Web sites like
www.experian.com give you
quick and easy access to your


credit report and credit score.
Make sure all the information
on your credit report is
accurate. If you notice
anything questionable, such
as accounts you don't
recognize, or payment
disputes, resolve those issues
by contacting your creditors
and the credit reporting
companies.
For more information on
checking your credit report,
visit www.experian.com.
