settles

with Union

N Teachers to vote

Vanessa Fultz
Demrcral Reporter

After the second .media-
tion meeting to negotiate
teachers' raises, the Sui'an-
nee County School Board
and the teacher's union are
closing the books on the is-
sue.
The bargaining teams set-l
tied last week on three stipu-
lations: teachers' raises set at
3 percent across the board,
effective Jan. 1; a one-time
bonus equal to 3 percent of
salary received for July 1
through Dec. 31, 2005 and
creation of a sick leave bank
to provide employees emer-
gency sick leave for illness
or injury beyond that avail-
able under provisions gov-
erning sick leave.
President of United
Teacher's of Suwannee
County Sheryl Daniels said
though she feels the agree-
ment is unfair, the union is
tired of fighting the Board
this late in the school year.
"We see the Board isn't
going to budge. Why waste
time and energy on some-
thing that's going to cause
unrest for everyone,"
Daniels said. "This is as
good as it's going to get, and
we're tired."
Daniels said though the
union didn't get the raise
they wanted she feels satis-
fied because the union suc-
ceeded at getting raises
retroactive.
"Though they're calling it
a bonus, the pay amounts to
the same as raises being

Premature Birth:


Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter
Every.10 minutes polio claimed
another victim in-1952. Every
three minutes today a baby is born
with a birth defect. Every minute
of every day a baby is born pre-
.maturely.
These and other facts were out-
lined at a March of Dimes execu-
tive luncheon Jan. 19 at Tucker's
Fine Dining in Lake City where
sponsors and organization leaders
discussed the upcoming WalkA-
merica'fund-raiser.
March of Dimes North Central
Florida E(ecuti'e Directr Lynda
Knight said the organization began
because of the epidemic of polio.
","Most of these children and
young people born after 1960
don't know anN thing about polio
except from a history book be-
cause they've received the gift of
two generations of volunteerss \\ ho
were killingg to work for the
cause," she said. calling for moti-
vation and mobilization from or-
ganizations, businesses, churches
and the community .
Knight said there are over
500,000 cases of prematurity per
year, an epidemic 10 times greater
than that of polio. Premature birth
is a national crisis'resulting in
death or serious health problems
including cerebral palsy, blindness


and mental retardation. And pre-
maturity cases are up 33 percent
since 1980, she said.
Several families who have been
affected by prematurity attended


the luncheon, including Eric and
Sarah Musgrove of Live Oak. The
Musgroves lost their daughter a
few years ago when Sarah suf-
fered from preeclampsia during


pregnancy, a common cause for
premature births. Their daughter,
Hannah, was born between 23 and

Suwannee County

Sheriff's Office report

Michigan man charged with
making a false report of a crime
On Friday, Jan. 20, Suwannee County Sheriff's Deputy Lee
Willis arrested Robert Wayne Poling, Jr., 31, Jackson, MI. Pol-
ing was charged with making a false report of a crime.
At approximately 10:45 p.m. Deputy Willis was dispatched
to the McDonald's at CR 136 and Interstate 75 regarding some-
one being kidnapped from their home in Michigan and being
transported to Florida by his captors, according to the Sheriffs
Office. Poling told the deputy that two men had kidnapped him
from his residence, beaten and robbed him on.their way to
Florida and then dumped him out nearby. As the deputy ques-
tioned Poling he kept changing his story and eventually he ad-
mitted that it was all made up. He told the deputy that he and a
friend had driven to Florida, according to the Sheriffs Office.
They had gotten into an argument that escalated into a fight and
the friend had dumped him out of the vehicle and left him
alongside the road, according to the Sheriffs Office.
Poling was arrested and transported to the Suwannee Coun-
ty Jail. His bond has been set at $2,000.

Woman charged with
disorderly conduct
On Friday, Jan. 20, Suwannee County Sheriff's Deputy
Tanya Rodriguez arrested Linda Bass, 41, transient. Bass was
charged with disorderly conduct.
At approximately 4 p.m. Deputy Rodriguez was dispatched
to the Nut House Bar on CR 136 regarding an alleged intoxi-
cated woman who was causing a disturbance in the street and
trying to stop a school bus, according to the Sheriffs Office.
When Deputy Rodriguez arrived, the woman had moved on to
a residence near the bar. She was yelling and flailing her arms
at the resident that lived there, the Sheriff's Office said. When
asked to stop she began shouting'profanities, according to the
Sheriffs Office.
Bass was arrested and transported to the Suwannee County
Jail where she was released later by Circuit Judge David Fina
for time served.

School District negotiations

long and difficult
After several months of negotiations,
union members wearing protest shirts
to schools, school officials saying they
were strapped for funds and couldn't
give large raises, the teachers' union
and the School District have come to a
meeting of the minds.
Somewhat.
Teachers will have the last word
when they vote on this agreement next
week. It is expected to be approved by
staff and that the School Board will
ratify the agreement.
Both sides won and lost.
The School Board maintained it
could only give 3 percent raises, the
union wanted 6 percent. They got 3
percent.
The School Board said it wouldn't
pay the raises retroactively. The union
said it would. Although it has another
name bonus staff will get that mon-
ey retroactive.
And, it only cost how ,many hours of
worrying, negotiating and dealing,
with this issue?
It's time the raise issue was dealt
with, as this type of situation only
serves to cause disruption among
School District employees and unfor-
tunately, can even filter over into the
classroom. It's hard for teachers and
other staff to keep their minds on their
duties while worrying about whether
their salaries will meet cost of living
increases and can cause breaches in
the relationships and trust between
School District headquarters staff and
teachers and other staff members.
This was the first time since 1996
that the union and School District
went to impasse and even then, it was
not over teachers' raises.
While School District employees
were expecting these raises before
Christmas, they were disappointed
when they did not receive 'their de-
served increases in time for the holi-
days.
It can be disappointing to watch
these negotiations take place among
adults who are in charge of our chil-
dren's education and who are to set
examples for our children.
There must be a better way for em-
ployees to get raises than to publicly
demonstrate by wearing their protests
into the classroom.
There must be a. better way for the
School District to handle these issues
than to plead poverty and ignorance
about what's available, yet in 'the end
give exactly the raise ,they said they
would give plus the "bonus."


Kudos to those 'who made the deci-
sions to offer and accept and end the
pain.... for another year.

There is an old saying that when God shuts a door, he opens
a window. It's true.
Last year, I lost two;good dogs. My blind Australian shepherd,
Okie, died of old age. Salebam, my much-loved working dog
who had survived being run over by a feed tnrck and shot through

of his body.
I went to my family Thanksgiving dinner where I learned my
cousin Bully's good border collie had just delivered a litter, of
pups the day before. Even better, the pups'daddy is a short-haired
border collie well known for his ability. He belongs to Mike An-
drews, a western artist of note who is from my hometown.
By Dec. 30 when my parents came to visit, that litter of pups
was 37 days old. I think that's a little green to pick a pup but
when they arrived in a carrier in the back of the truck was a black,
and white ball of hair sized just to fit in my two palms put to-
gether.
I don't know \wh. people make the grand declaration they will
neverr get so attached to another dog." That's the whole point of
having a dog to work with you and/or be a lifelong companion.

dog I knew. She belonged to my good friend.Curtis Capps who

the working dog his was, she will have accomplished a great
deal.
Right now, she's just a kid.
M. Imom has a compulsion to prune mi bushes. Probably be-
cause I never seem to get around to that chore. So even though
the wind was blo%\ing 60 miles an hour. one day Mom w ent out
.' witb both long and short-handled pruners to shape up a big aza-
Slea, a giant lilac, a wild rose. whichh had shown up in between,
and two saplings I didn't even know where in that mess.
My job was to load the cuttings on the \wheel barrow and roll
Stem into a small draw in the pasture. That task would've been
difficult enough since it was hard to keep the stuffin the wheel
barrow in a wind storm, but it was made much more interesting-
by the fact that the wheel barrow tire was almost flat. My air tank
went (insert co\\ parts here)i up sometime ago, so I just had to
make do.
Add to the wind and flat tire a very small pup tangled-between
your feet aridyou've got a recipe for a wreck. Somehow. I man-
agedto make many trips w without squashing the pup, but twice the
load blew off.
Why, you may ask, didn't I just pen the pup somewhere, or put
her in the trailer? Because, she'll have to spend her life knocking
my tracks out. I can spot her a few now.

Suwannee County awarded $13,675


Suwannee County has been
chosen to receive $13,785 to
supplement emergency food
and shelter programs in this
area.
The selection was made by
a national board that is chaired
by the Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA)
and consists of representatives
from the Salvation Army;
American Red Cross; United
Jewish Communities;
Catholic Charities, USA; T4a-
tional Council of the Churches
of Christ in the U.S.A.; and
United Way of America. The
board was charged to distrib-
ute funds appropriated by


Congress to help expand the
capacity of food and shelter
programs in high-need areas
around the country.
A local board made up of
representatives of the Ameri-
can Red Cross, Another Way,
Catholic Charities, Salvation
Army, Suwannee River Eco-
nomic Council, United Way
and representatives of local
government and the faith
coinmunity will determine
how the funds awarded to
Suwannee County are to be
distributed among the emer-
gency food and shelter pro-
grams run by local service
agencies. The local board is


Money comes from
Emergency Food and Shelter
National Board Program


responsible for recommending
agencies to receive these
funds and any additional
funds available under this
phase of the program.
Under the terms of the grant
news from the national board,
local agencies chosen to re-
ceive funds must: 1) be private
voluntary non-profits or units
of government, 2) have an ac-
counting system, 3) practice
'nondiscrimination, 4) have


demonstrated the capability to
deliver emergency food and/or
shelter programs, and 5) if they
are a private voluntary organi-
zation, they must have a volun-
tary board. Qualifying agencies
are urged to apply.

Chase Conway Bowling Tourney to

provide youth scholarship funds


The law firm of Brannon,
Brown, Haley & Bullock,
P.A., takes great pride in join-
ing Dennis Conway and his
wife, Tara Conway, in spon-
soring the Lake City Youth
Bowling Association with a
scholarship contribution of
$7,000 to benefit local youth
bowlers in the upcoming
Chase Conway Bowling Tour-
nament. The Chase Conway


Bowling Tournament will
guarantee contributions into
the "Smart Account" estab-
lished by the United States
Bowling Association for many
youth bowlers in the Columbia
and Suwannee County area.
The purpose of this account is
to provide scholarship funds to
aid community youth in
achieving their education

support, the dream is now be-
coming'a reality."
The groundbreaking cere-
mony will begin at 3 p.m.
with a reception to follow at
the site Jan. 26. The site is lo-
cated west of Lake, City at
6037 US 90. This is approxi-
mately four miles west of In-
terstate 75. The facility will
serve Columbia, Hamilton,
Suwannee, Lafayette and
Union counties, as well as a
portion of Baker County. The
public is invited.
'Whlen 'we'say the commu-'
nity ias u.ippored this cam-
paign, we really mean the
community," said Krista
Mitchell Cornell, associate di-
rector of development for
Haven Hospice.
In November 2004, the
leadership phase for the capi-
tal campaign to raise $3 mil-:
lion to construct the facility
began. Since that time, more
than $1 million has been do-
nated or pledged.
Some of the donors include
Mercantile Bank, Columbia
County Bank, First Federal
Savings Bank and the Forrest
Lake Land Trust, comprised
of 10 individuals who wish to
remain anonymous.
Challenge grants have also
been made to encourage resi-
dents to give. The Suwannee
County Commission pledged
matching funds up to
$200,000 for residents or
businesses of Suwannee
County, Columbia County
Board of County Commis-
sioners has pledged matching


funds up to $350,000 for any
resident or-business of Co-
lumbia County who donates,
the Lake Shore Hospital Au-
thority issued, a $250,000
challenge pledge to Columbia
County as well.
Suwannee County Haven
Hospice board member Mar-
jorie Carmichael is thrilled
about the new facility. "If
your family has never needed
Sto use Hospice, you just can't
understand how important
this facility is," Carmichael
said. Carmichael and local
Realtor Ronnie Poole ap-
proaclied : :the' Suwannee
' Coiity Commission about
matching $200,000 she and
Poole hope to raise locally.
After a few weeks of think-
ing it over, the commission-
ers, agreed. Carmichael said
she has personal experience
Using Hospice and can't say
enough about the work they
do.
"With this type of commu-
nity support, we are now able
to move with confidence to
the construction phase of the
building," Bowen said.
The facility will have 16
private rooms. Family mem-
bers and patients will be able
to stroll through beautiful
memorial gardens and spend
quiet time in a chapel. The
Mercantile Bank Community
Room will also provide space
for larger gatherings and cele-
brations.
For those who would like
more information on donating
to the campaign, please call
Krista, Mitchell Cornell at
800-727-1889.


The history behind the con-
tribution to the scholarship
fund arises from Dennis and
Tara Conway's son, Chase,
and his enthusiastic involve-
ment in the Lake City Youth
Bowling Association. The
community was shocked re-
cently when Chase was killed
in an automobile accident in
Suwannee County. Following
legal representation by the
Brannon, Brown, Haley &
Bullock law fire, a settlement
was reached in which the at-
torney's, Bill Haley, Tom
Brown and Steve Bullock
were so moved by the passion
of the Conway family that
they agreed to donate to help
fund the Lake City Youth
Bowling Association tourna-
ment along with Dennis and
Tara Conway. "Although we

never personally met Chase
Conway, in speaking with his
family, friends and the manag-
er of the Lake City Bowling
Alley, we are proud to partici-
pate and are honored to be in-
volved in promoting the youth
tournament in the name of
Chase Conway," said Haley,
president of the Brannon,
Brown law firm. "We encour-
age all the surrounding youth
bowlers to participate in this
year's annual Chase Conway
Bowling Tournament which
will be held this spring at the
Lake City Bowling Center and
to remember Chase for his en-
thusiasm and love of the
sport," said Haley.

Live Oak man arrested on

drug charges in Chiefland
A Suwannee County man was arrested in *
Chiefland Jan. 21 on a felony drug posses-
sion charge after the Chiefland Police De-
partment's K-9 unit stopped his car for a .
possible traffic offense.
According to police reports, Jason Dal-
las Shanes, 18, of 859 Southwest Mary-
mac Street, Live Oak, was arrested at Jason Dallas
10:50 p.m. at the intersection of South Shanes
Main Street and Southeast First Avenue
on a felony marijuana possession charge and a misde-
meanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Officer Jay Bolton, who handles the drug-detecting dog
Delta, stated that while he was waiting for dispatchers to
process Shanes' license and registration information, he told
the suspect that.if he had a misdemeanor amount of mari-
juana in his car, it would be in his best interest to be honest
about it.
Shanes then told Bolton that he had a "sack" underneath
his seat, according to the report. However, when Bolton re-
trieved the drug and conducted a field test, it was found to
weigh 28.8 grams, reports show, 'an amount well over the.
felony threshold of 20 grams.
Bolton also reported that Shanes showed him where two
drug pipes were located in the car, and both of them tested
positive for the presence of marijuana.

Q: What is pericoronitis and what causes
it?
A: Pericoronitis is a painful infection and
inflammation of the gum around a tooth
that is only partially erupted. It usually
occurs with the eruption of the mandibular
third molars, more commonly called the
"wisdom" teeth. Wisdom teeth normally
erupt during late adolescence. What
causes the condition is an accumulation of
food particles and bacteria in the space
between the teeth and gum combined with
impact on the gum by an opposing tooth.
Once a bacterial infection has begun, the
pain and fever will be constant. Don't
ignore any pain in your mouth. In the case
of pericoronitis, the infection can spread
into surrounding tissue and become
dangerous. See your dentist. A dentist can
irrigate the gum flap with a soothing,
cleansing solution, and prescribe
antibiotics that will cure the infection
quickly. The dentist may be able to cut
away loose tissue and fully expose the
crown of the tooth, which will help prevent
infection from recurring. Talk with your
dentist about ways to avoid the unpleasant
experience of percoronitis.

Mama,
You were the epitome of love. Love for God, your
family, your neighbors, our church family, and love for
strangers. You always taught us to be loving and
charitable to others. There was always room in your
heart, in your home, and at your table for anyone who
happened by. Thank you for leaving your grandchildren
a legacy of love that was always unconditional. You
will forever be in their hearts. You have left a void in
our hearts and our life that is hard to fill. Each day stirs
memories that brings smiles and sometimes tears. We
have lost a mother and best friend; however, we are
sure that God has his arms around you, Buddy, Ricky &

We love and miss you,

24 weeks weighing 11 ounces. Hannah
lived for one hour.
Robin and Karen Green shared their
heart-breaking story of how prematuri-
ty resulted in the death of their twin
sons.
Twelve-year-old Luke Parrish, a
March of Dimes youth ambassador,
shared his story about the numerous
surgeries and health problems he's en-
dured because of being born premature-
ly.
Though Eric Musgrove shared the
moving story about the loss of his
daughter, he also brought to the meet-
ing his.son, Alex, also born premature-
ly. Sarah Musgrove also suffered with


preeclampsia during her pregnancy
with their son, yet the couple has a
healthy toddler today.
"Alex is two and a half and healthy
with the exception of sinus allergies,
and he would have gotten that anyway,"
Eric said.
"The research the March of Dimes
has done is partly the reason Alex is
here -- that he made it," Sarah Mus-
grove said in an interview later.
She explained that she was able to
take shots to increase Alex's lung de-
velopment before he was born, a proce-
dure that could then be done at 23
weeks. She was also given surfactant
treatments, which prevents the baby's
lungs from sticking together.
Sarah Musgrove said with new tech-


nological advancements, hospitals now
have breathing tubes that would have
been small enough for her daughter,
Hannah.
"We. support the March of Dimes to
help find an answer for the cause of
premature births and a cure for
preeclampsia," she said.
Eric Musgrove and the Greens are
2006 honorary WalkAmerica co-chairs.
The community is asked to come and
"walk for someone you love" Saturday,
April 8 at Olustee Park in Lake City.
Those Interested may register online at
www.walkamerica.org or by phone at

retroactive," she said.
School Board Business
Manager Rick Norris said at
the first mediation meeting
teachers would be offered a 3
percent raise but it would not
be retroactive but effective Jan.
1. Usually, teachers' raises are
retroactive from July 1.
The two bargaining teams
settled at the mediation meet-
ing at the School Board office
Jan. 19. Teachers will be asked
to vote on the agreement Jan.
31 at each school site. Once the
information is passed on to the
School Board, the Board will
have a final meeting to ratify
the decision.
Daniels said she suspects
teachers will vote in favor of
the decision because they are
tired of fighting the Board.
The decision follows a long
battle between the teacher's
union and School Board over
teachers' raises, which began
in the fall. The union fought
for a 6 percent raise, whereas
the Board maintained their 3
percent stance on raise offers.
Though Norris has repeated-
ly reminded the union about
the 1.26 percent step increase

4.26 percent, Danie

Shelby County, Alabama on a
fugitive warrant from Florida.
Local officials were expecting
to bring 'Mixon back to
Suwannee County for arraign-
ment, but learned after the ftct
that she had been released on
bond in Alabama.
Mixon is now slated to be
arraigned Feb. 8 in circuit
court in Live Oak at which
.time she must make an ap-
pearance before the judge.
Mixon is charged, by the
Third Circuit State Attorney's


cause only a fraction of staff
are eligible for step increases.
Daniels also maintained that
the School Board's decision to
accept a raise increase of 4.26
percent in order not to exceed
the amount teachers were be-
ing offered, is actually more
than what the majority, of
teachers will receive due to
step increase eligibility.
Norris said instructional
staff is paid the step increase
out of the general fund, and
239 out of 368 of those staff
members received step in-
creases this year. Also, many
more non-instructional staff re-
ceived the step increase, he
said.
According to Daniels, em-
ployees who did not receive
step increases include 25 per-
cent of instructional staff, 57
percent of non-instructional
staff paid from Fund 100, 54
percent of food service work-
ers and 37 percent of other
non-instructional staff.
Norris said he did not have
the numbers for the amount of
non-instructional staff who re-
ceived step increases.
"I'm glad we were able to re-
solve the issue. We can now
move on to other things," he
said.

Treatment for Iron Deficiency Anemia
Anemias are a group of disorders that are characterized by a reduction
in the blood's ability to carry oxygen. Iron deficiency anemia is just one
type. It can be caused by malnutrition, hookworms, and diets with
limited meat, fresh fruit, or fresh vegetables. This type of anemia often
has no symptoms and is best diagnosed by a blood test done at a
physician's office.
The treatment for iron deficiency anemia includes iron
supplementation with diet and iron preparations. There are multiple iron
supplement products available with and without a prescription. Iron
supplements come in several forms that include: ferrous sulfate, ferrous
gluconate, ferrous fumarate, and polysacaride iron complex. The
differences in these formulations rest in how much iron can be absorbed
from the product. To get the most iron from any iron supplement, use a
non-sustained release product, take the supplement about and hour
before meals, and do not use a combination product such as antacids.
Iron products are sometimes difficult to tolerate and can cause stomach
upset. To increase tolerability, take the supplement in 2-3 divided doses
daily and take with food if given approval by a physician. Report any
difficulties in tolerability or for questions about your iron supplement,
consult your pharmacist. 230925-F

Suwannee wins Billy Saylor Invitational


Janet Schrader
Democrat Reporter
The wrestling was hot
and the weather was cold
for the first-ever Billy Say-
lor Invitational wrestling
tournament Saturday, Jan.
14, hosted by Suwannee
High wrestling. The compe-
tition was just as tough as
SHS wrestling coach David
Laxton hoped it would be,
with Suwannee edging out
Bradley Central, visiting
from North Carolina, for
the win.
It was Michael Wright's
fabulous pin in he final
round that put the Bulldogs
into the winner's circle.
Wright's pin in the 215
weight class, was the only
pin in the championship
round. The six team. points
Wright earned for his pin
put Suwannee up 161 to
156 over Bradley with
Bradley scheduled to wres-
tle for the championship in
the 275 class. But Univ.ersi-
ty Christian's wrestler de-


feated Bradley's heavy
weight and Suwannee won.
A pin for Bradley in that
last match would have put
them up by one point.
The tournament was cre-
ated to honor Suwannee
High wrestler Billy Saylor
who died in ??? Teams from
all over the South were in-
vited and showed up for
this prestigious meet. There
were teams from Pratville,
Ala., Coppell, TX., Valdos-
ta High from Ga., and
Bradley Central High
School from North Caroli-
na. Many Florida teams
showed up to wrestle as
well, teams from Lincoln,
Clay, Wakulla and Clewis-
ton among them. In all, 11
teams participated in the
Billy Saylor Invitational.
Suwannee had two tour-
nament champions. Michael
Wright and Caleb Wain-
wright went undefeated to
earn the medal and the title.
Wainwright wrestles in the
125 weight class.

Suwannee men's soccer wins two more Two Suwannee boys advance to


Suwannee 8-0 over Lafayette and 3-2 over


:'.I,


Taylor


By Sheila Hiss
The Suwannee Bulldogs took on the Lafayette
County Hornets in Mayo on Tuesday, Jan. 10, in a re-
match of a mid-December game. This is the first year
for soccer at Lafayette County, but the 1-5-1 Hornets
have tied Taylor County and defeated Jefferson Coun-
ty.
Suwannee led off the scoring at minute 13 on a foul
kick. After lining up, first JD Hales, then Corey
Bridges ran over the ball, and Billy 'Moran kicked.
Meanwhile Hales circled around in front of the net and
left-footed Moran's kick into the goal.
The Hornets stuck tight to the Bulldogs, trying to
win the ball whenever possible. The Bulldogs scored
again six minutes later as Jay Stachowicz booted in a
shot from the right side with an assist from Tyler Har-
ris.
Mayo had a couple of comer kicks later in the'half,
but the Suwannee defenders deflected both. The Hor-
nets stood their ground and keeper Josue Licea had
several nice saves. At the half the Bulldogs were up 2-
0.
In the second period Suwannee was able to take over
the scoring, wearing out the young but feisty Hornet
team. In the 44th minute, Billy Moran scored on a
booming left-footed kick with an assist from Corey
Bridges. Ten minutes later, JD Hales passed to Cullen
Boggus, who shot, rebounded the ball, shot again, and
found the mark. The Hornet keeper came out of the net
on a charge in minute 58 and Moran tapped the ball in
behind him from the left side.

Suwannee men's soccer wins two more


Suwannee goal


Photo: Paul Buchanan


Soccer


Continued From Page 1B

On a Hales comer kick a few
minutes later, Stachowicz belted
the ball into the goal. Lafayette
County had a direct kick and a
comer kick, but was unable to
get the ball behind the Bulldog
defenders. The Suwannee scor-
ing was rounded out when Josh
Hanusek converted his stolen
ball and Andrew Cundiff cor-
ralled a loose ball and rocketed
it into the goal from midfield.
That kick made the score 8-0
and turned out the lights.
Two nights later, Suwannee
met the Taylor County Bulldogs
at home in a totally different
game. Taylor had been a district
rival in past years and the two
teams were evenly matched.
In mid-November, Suwannee
had bested Perry 2-1 on their
'field. Suwannee struck quickly
in the first minute of the game as
they took control of the ball and
passed downfield, where Josh
Asuncion crossed to Billy
Moran. The Taylor goalie came
out to challenge, but Moran's
kick slowly rolled into the net
behind the astonished keeper.
In the next 28 minutes,
Suwannee had three runs down-
field and three close misses.
Fate was also against them as
keeper Matt Yanossy dropped a
Taylor kick from the comer,
which was tapped into the net in
the 29th minute. Suwannee
ratcheted up the pressure at the
end of the half but was unable to
convert. At the break, the score
was tied 1-1.
In the second half, the pace
picked up, as did the roughness
of the play. Suwannee found it
hard to complete passes as Tay-
lor crawled all over them. In the
54th minute, in a demonstration
of beautiful teamwork, Billy


Moran passed downfield to JD
Hales who crossed to Jay Sta-
chowicz. Stachowicz belted it
in, and Suwannee went up 2-1.
As play continued, the refer-
ees seemed to lose control of the
game and roughness, puzzling
fouls, and frustration increased.
None of the direct kicks from
fouls resulted in a score for ei-
ther team. However, in the 75th
minute, a Taylor forward drove
a through ball downfield and
faced keeper Matt Yanossy. The
Taylor player faked, pulled
Yanossy to the side and drove
the ball behind him into the far
comer of the net, tying the score
2-2.
Suwannee rose to the chal-
lenge and three minutes later,
the ball ricocheted .among a
cluster of players in front of the
opponents' net. The Taylor
keeper came out to grab it, but a
quick acting Tyler Harris
popped the ball into the net be-
hind him. Suwannee hung on
for two more minutes and came
out on top 3-2.
Coach Frank Johnson was
pleased. "It was ugly," he said.
"But any win over Taylor Coun-
ty is great! We had a lot of pass-
ing and good opportunities, but
could not convert. Several
times the team could have lost
their composure, but they all
kept their heads up and hung in
there. The disappointing part is
that we ran Taylor County into
the ground the first half, but they
got back in it the second half af-
ter their goal. We out-hustled the
other team. Yeah, we bent, but
we did not break!"
After an away game this
week, the men's district soccer
tournament is here at Langford
Stadium on Jan. 24. Come out
to cheer the team in the difficult
district matches ahead!

Music starts at 2 p.m.
Is it country? Or is it rock? Depends on
who you ask if inquiring about the sounds
of Vari Zant. But everyone agrees on one
thing- whichever you want to, call it, the
music is phenomenal. Come listen to
what happens when the siblings of
Southern Rock's first family come
together and give it all they've got on
Saturday, Jan. 28 at Wild Adventures.
.r The Van Zant name is one.synonymous
with great Southern Rock. Johnny has
sold millions of records, played
thousands of shows and charted
numerous hits as one of the charter
members of the legendary Lynyrd
Skynyrd. Donnie is the voice and face of-
38 Special, another well-known band to
rock fans. And, of course, both were
influenced by brother Ronnie, whose life
was cut way too short at the height of
Lynyrd Skynyrd's fame.
In a way, it was his death that brought
about the life of Van Zant, as
the brothers realized that
family is important and time
can be short. Playing, together
is all about being brothers.
Okay, not completely about
!!" being brothers. It's also about
the music. The gritty, searing
guitar riffs, pounding drums,
hit-it-where-the-blue-collar-
nman-\\orks music. And the
music gets started at 2 p.m.
\ ith opening act Laney
Sirickland. The show is
included in park admission, so
bring your lawn chairs to set
up and enjoy the show.

Popular teen singer/actress Jillian
Wheeler will make an encore appear-
ance in Florida with daily perfor-
mances at the Florida State Fair Feb.
9-20.
New England's beloved teen rocker
Wheeler has been busy winning
hearts across America over the last
several months, particularly in Flori-
da. Following her debut Florida ap-

ful Things," which will be released

started' a smaller version of the event
on the grounds of his Tampa Bay Ho-
tel in downtown prior to 1900. In
1904, on that same site, T.J. Laud-
Brown captivated the community
with his enthusiasm and revived the
concept of the fair in conjunction
with the first annual Gasparilla cele-
bration. In 1977, the fair moved to its
current 350-plus acre site at Inter-
state-4 and US 301, where it contin-
ues to attract over half a million vis-


itors annually. For more details on the
Fair, visit
http://www.floridastatefair.com/statefair.asp

Wheeler will be performing at the Florida
State Fair daily as part of the exclusive
World's Fair For Kids preview exhibit locat-
ed in the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center. The
World's Fair for Kids, in partnership with the
Orlando Con'ention and Visitor's Bureau, is
the cornerstone event of the 2)006 Orlando


FLORIDA STATE FAIR: Popular teen singer/actress Jillian
Wheeler will perform daily Feb. 9-20 at the fairgrounds at

Family Spring Break and will be held in Or-
lando from April 15-23. During the Florida

iances by their National SpokesKid, Wheel-

S'kIr. m 1


Though cancer is claiming more and more victims each year, heart disease remains the
foremost cause of death in Americans. According to the American Heart Association, 70.1
million Americans suffer from some type of cardiovascular disease, with roughly 10 percent
Sof those sufferers being victims of a heart attack and nearly 5 million of those suffering from
22,577-F congestive heart failure.
Perhaps the most difficult obstacle to overcome with respect to heart failure is making
Il people know they have it. Despite the implied totality of its name, heart failure does not
mean your heart just stops. Rather, heart failure gradually develops and taxes your heart to
the point where it needs to work especially hard just to maintain normal function, such as
pumping your blood. It is typically the result of a heart attack or an extended period of high
blood pressure.
There are distinctive characteristics that act as indicators of heart failure. For instance,.
trouble breathing when resting or lying down, and waking up breathless in the middle of the
night can be signs.
Another symptom not to take lightly is fatigue. Those who might be on the doorstep of
I;, heart failure tire more easily than is normal for someone their age and might experience
ne. edema, a swelling of the feet, ankles or legs. If you find yourself or a loved one to be tiring
Knees, despite a lack of activity, consult.a physician and ask for a cardiovascular examination.
Snd Excessive coughing is also a telltale sign of heart failure. A hacking cough when lying in
sdics, bed or a cough that produces ample and continuous mucus is a sign that heart failure might
be setting in. While each of these symptoms might seem commonplace in the elderly, they
all imply something worse than just "getting old," and further attention is necessary if you or
someone you love is exhibiting these symptoms.
26573-F Though heart failure is typically not recognized until its more advanced stages, there are a
number of precautions one can take to limit one's risk of heart failure.
-ns.O.D. One such precaution is exercising at a rate and frequency prescribed by your doctor.
Consult with a physician, as opposed to an athletic or personal trainer, and work with him or:
her to develop ian appropriate routine.
Another thing to do is watch your weight. Large fluctuations in body weight can be-
extremely taxing on your heart, whether you're dropping pounds or gaining them.
Maintaining a steady weight or, if you're trying to lose,weight, dropping pounds gradually
I allows your heart to tackle a more predictable workload.
Limiting your intake of salt can also go a long way in reducing your risk for heart failure.
Sodium has long been linked to high blood pressure, something that is a direct cause of
heart failure.
It is wise to remember the prevalence of heart failure Though its name might imply fatality,
e there are a number of steps you can take to lower your risks of falling victim to heart failure.

Mrs. Cofins, Spirituawist

Heafer, Reader, Advisor
All w ho are unsuccessful, unlucky, dissatisfied, let the woman who know s help ou. She removes e il influence. If husband or wife is unfaithful,
see her now. She settles lovers quarrels, helps you gain the lost love and affection of the one you love and shows you the way to happiness.
She names friends and enemies and tells you if friends are true or false. She locates lost & stolen property. She does not claim to be God. She is just
a servant of the Lord who was brought here to help humanity. If you have any problem concerning the past, present, future, love, marriage,
business, lawsuits, finances, health; if you are in trouble, sick or in love, there's no problem so great that she cannot solve.

How to Create ** and enjoy ** lower.sugar desserts


(ARA) Those who
choose to or have to
monitor their sugar intake,
or carbohydrate-conscious
confectionary lovers, can
often find it difficult to bake
and enjoy desserts without
compromising healthy
eating habits -- or
sacrificing taste.
One way to find balance
is to prepare sweet treats
that are more healthful and
satisfying as possible.
Consider baking a dessert
made with sugar-free
chocolate or candy products
such as Hershey's Sugar
Free Candy to avoid
sacrificing flavor, texture
and overall "sweet
satisfaction."
Hershey's Sugar Free
Candy is a welcome
alternative to regular
Hershey's Candy. It has the
same high quality and
famous taste--but without
the sugar. The candy is
sweetened in part, with
sugar alcohols, sugar
replacers that cause only a
slight rise in blood sugar
levels. But remember:
making a healthier dessert
doesn't mean that you can
eat as much as you want.
With all desserts, you
should practice moderation
and limit portion sizes.
Before selecting a dessert
recipe, it is important to
review nutrition guidelines
that are designed to keep
you and your family


healthy. Check out the
.USDA food pyramid -- it's.a
great place to start and
provides a health of
information. Calculate a
plan tailored to you and
learn more at
www.pyramid.gov.
Below are two easy-to-
prepare desserts made with
Hershey's Sugar Free
Candies that can provide
great taste for the whole
family.

Peppermint Pattie
Pudding

Made with York Sugar
Free Peppermint Patties

4 servings

8 York Sugar Free
Peppermint Patties

1 package (four-serving
size) sugar-free vanilla
cook-and-serve, reduced-
calorie pudding and pie

1 tablespoon Hershey's
Dutch Processed or
Hershey's Cocoa

2 cups low-fat 2 percent
or 1 percent milk
Frozen reduced-fat
whipped topping, thawed
(optional)
Additional York Sugar
Free Peppermint Patties for
garnish (optional)
Remove wrappers from


peppermint patties; cut into
pieces. Stir together
pudding mix and cocoa in
medium saucepan.
Gradually stir in milk; cook
according to' package"'
directions. Remove from
heat; stir in chopped
peppermint patties. Stir
until melted and mixture is
smooth. Press plastic wrap
directly onto pudding
surface to prevent formation
of skin. Refrigerate several
hours or until chilled.
Remove plastic wrap; stir
and divide evenly into 4
parfait glasses. Garnish with
whipped topping and
peppermint pattie.

Panna Cotta Coconut
and Reese's White
Peanut Butter Cups

.4 servings

1 teaspoon pure vanilla

2 teaspoons gelatin

1 bag Reese's White
Sugar Free Peanut Butter
Cups, cut into 1/4 pieces

In the top of a double
broiler, combine the fat-free
half and half, coconut milk,
sucralose blend and vanilla.
Heat liquid over medium
heat, stirring until smooth
and hot. Remove from
double broiler and add
gelatin. Stir for 5 minutes or
until gelatin dissolves. Add
half of the Reese's White
Sugar Free Peanut Butter
Cups and continue stirring
until incorporated. Pour into
4 ounce custard dishes and
add remaining diced
Reese's White Sugar Free
Peanut Butter Cups on top
of custard. Refrigerate for 4
hours or overnight.

How to motivate kids to exercise


(ARA) Video games.
School vending machines.
Internet surfing. It's all
helping create a new
generation of unhealthier,
more sedentary youth.
Experts partly blame low
participation in sports, cuts in
physical education and less
walking and biking to school.
There are so many
distractions found in new
television, computer and
video game technology,
without strong motivation
adolescents are at risk of
becoming inactive. So what
motivates teens to exercise
and stay healthy?
Two new studies in
Archives of Pediatrics &
Adolescent Medicine explore
the reasoning behind kids'
and teens' choices about
exercise and dieting.
Researchers at the State
University of New York at
Albany surveyed 200 middle
school students on their
motivations for exercising.
They discovered that both
boys and girls were most
likely to say that personal
enjoyment or wanting to be
fit was their main motivation
to exercise, a finding that
surprised lead researcher,
Katie Haverly, M.S.
"You might expect that
adolescent girls would be
motivated, to be physically
active for the purposes of
weight loss or weight
maintenance, but we did not
find that to be true." Haverly
stated that the students who
were motivated by personal
enjoyment exercised or
played sports because it felt
good, to be healthy and to
improve their skills "We
were just surprised that
.adolescents would report that
they felt that wa\ about
physical activity."
But the researchers also
found that a child's
motivations changed
depending on their abilitmes.
Students who felt ihe>
weren't skilled at sports % ere
less likely to be motivated by
personal enjoyment than
those who were more
athletic.
Haverly suggests that
stressing the health aspects of
physical activity, instead of
athleticism and competition,
could encourage participation
by kids who feel less
confident in their abilities.
"These students would be
most motivated to be active if
they could improve their
skills while being active, if
the activity is enjoyable and
if the activity improves their
health and fitness," Haverly
says.
In addition to requiring
physical education in
schools, Haverly
recommends that
administrators promote a
wide variety of fun, skill-
building activities. "An
environment that offers
different choices or ways to
be active would be helpful,
because not all adolescents
will find the same activities
fun, rewarding or
motivating."
Research has also shown
that a child's parents have an
effect on the way they think
about exercise and dieting.
Children not only imitate
their parents' habits, good or
bad, but also respond to what
they believe is important to
their parents. In a second
study in the same issue of
Archives of Pediatrics &
Adolescent Medicine,
researchers questioned over
9,000 teens and their mothers
about weight and dieting.
They found that girls were
much more likely to think


about being thinner if they
thought it was important to
their mothers. Interestingly
enough, whether or not a
mother actually wanted her
daughter to be thinner had
less of an impact than the
daughter's perception of her
mother's opinion. The
researchers also noticed an
association between a
I I


mother's repeated attempts at
weight loss and her
daughter's dieting.
Mothers were found to
have less of an effect on their
sons' ideas about weight.
Only sons who. correctly
guessed that their mothers
thought weight loss was
important were more likely
to think about being thinner.
The study's lead author,
Alison E. Field, Sc.D., of


Harvard Medical School,
warns that parents should be
careful when talking to their
children about weight issues.
"Parents are justified in not
wanting their adolescents to
be overweight. However, it is
essential to strike a balance
between promoting a healthy
weight and not placing too
much emphasis on the
importance of weight."
The researchers suggested


that parents should be role
models to their children by
incorporating exercise and
healthy eating into their
everyday lives, rather than
imposing these strategies on
their kids. Doctors who treat
overweight adolescents
should be sure to promote
exercise for benefits other
.than weight loss, such as
improving self-esteem.
