Tallahassee office in the case.
"Based upon the findings of
fact and conclusions of law, it is

mission on Ethics issue a final
order and public report finding
that George Blake did not vio-
late Section 112.313(6), Florida
statutes, and dismissing the
complaint filed against him,"
Hooper wrote in his recom-
mended order. "Taking the evi-

found that Mr. Blake's actions
were corrupt," Hooper said in

Lake City Medical Center upgrades patient meal service


Donates food
service prod-
ucts to United
Way agencies

Lake City Medical Center
recently implemented a state-
of-the-art induction heat
process to improve patient
meal service and donated
their former food service
products to United Way of
Suwannee Valley, which pro-
vided the dinnerware to Co-
lumbia County Senior Ser-
vices, Love INC, Another
Way domestic violence center
and Corner Drug Store's
youth shelter to aid the agen-
cies in their food service pro-
grams.
Lake City Medical Center


transitioned to Aladdin's Heat
On Demand which pro-
vides instant heat, eliminating
hours of warm up time; is
compact, requiring little space
at the head of the tray line; re-
quires fewer pieces to handle,
wash and store, saving space;
and creates no extraneous
heat in the kitchen. In addi-
tion to its quick heating time,
food remains hot for a period
up to one hour, which ensures
patient meals arrive at opti-
mum serving and taste pleas-
ing temperatures. The new
system also uses 50% less
electricity to heat each meal.
Kirk Churchill, Lake City
Medical Center director of
food and nutrition services,
thoughtfully considered the
community non-profit agen-
cies that provide meal service


in selecting an agency to re-
ceive the hospital's former
food service dinnerware.
"When he advised the United
Way office of the availability
of the dinnerware, the agen-
cies were informed and the
hospital's former dinnerware
was requested and put to use
by community agencies," said
Rita Dopp, executive director
of United Way of Suwannee
Valley. ."It was extremely
thoughtful for Mr. Churchill
to arrange for the donation of
the former meal service prod-
ucts."
"We are very pleased to
have the used service ware we
can use for our seniors. These
are items we would have to
purchase, but now we don't
have to which saves money
for additional services," said


Debby Freeman, executive di-
rector of Columbia County
Senior Services.
Walter Disbrow, adminis-
trative assistant for Comer
Drug Store's NW Shelter in
Lake City picked up dinner-
ware for his agency's use. "I
know Rhonda (regional coor-
dinator) was very apprecia-
tive of the dinnerware-as was
Johnnie (senior youth care
worker). The kids even no-
ticed the new dinnerware and
were excited," said Disbrow.
"We appreciate the dona-
tion of the dinnerware. These
types of donations are items,
which are always needed in
our shelter as well as for fam-
ilies, which are beginning, a
household," said Donna Fa-
gan, executive director of An-
other Way.

construed to conflict with S.
104.31" which addresses elec-
tion and does not apply to this
case."
In his order, Hooper says to
conclude that Blake violated
Section 112.313(6), it must be
proven that:
a. Blake was a public officer
or employee of an agency and
that.
b. he used or attempted to use
his official position or any prop-
erty or. resource which was
within his trust or performed his
official duties such that ,
c. his actions were done with,
an intent to secure a special
privilege, benefit or exemption
for himself or others and .
d. that Blake's actions were
done "corruptly," that is,
1. done with a wrongful intent
and also
2. done for the purpose of
benefiting from some act or
omission, which was inconsis-
tent with the proper perfo'r-
mance of public duntes.
Hooper found that Blake used
his official position to affect the
employment status of Chris-
tensen, there, proving the first
two elements "by clear and con-
vincing evidence" and that al-
though he secured no special
privilege or exemption for him-
self or others, "he did however,
secure a benefit. He obtained re-
venge, therefore, the third ele-
ment is proved," Hooper said.
However, Hooper said Blake
sought and got .City Attorney
Ernie Sellers' opinion prior to
acting to try and get Christensen

four days City Administrator.
Myron Holmes had approved
until Christensen could get his
home sold in Umatilla. "Advice
of counsel, when based on a
proper statement of the facts, as
this was, is not necessarily a
complete defense in this case,"
Hooper said. "Nevertheless, Mr.
Sellers' opinion tends to prove a
lack ..of wrongful intent on the
part of Mr. Blake."
Hooper said although "Blake
was a. vociferous opponent of
Mr. Christensen and had a per-
sonal desire to be rid of him, he
was not alone in this desire.
There was a constituency in the
commununity, which opposed the
continuation of Mr. Chris-
tensen's employment. There
was a confluence of desire on
the part of certain citizens and
Mr. Blake to rid themselves of
Mr. Christensen. Therefore, Mr.
Blake's actions were consistent
with the proper performance of
his duties."
Both sides have 15 days from
the filing of the final 9rder to
subririt rinen e6ceptiog*s \\ ith
the Commission on Ethics. The
Conmmssionv will schedule' the
case for a hearing and make its
decision.

For many months, Chris and
Kim at Noble's Greenhouse
have adorned Nott Circle with
flower arrangements. Recently,
you have seen another pleasing
addition to the Circle, land-
scaping by Land Creations and
Landscaping. A soon to be
fountain donated by George
Corey of G & G Enterprise is
on the way. One of my goals as


T,
BY SONNY


mayor is to make our city more
attractive and pleasing to residents and visitors. Beau-
tifying the entry ways to the city. is a goal of mine.
Terry Land of Land Creations Nursery 'and Landscap-
ing approached me about doing a project to make our
city more appealing. I suggested to Terry that the me-
dian or island at the intersection of US 90 East and
Helvenston Street be taken on as his project. We got
with DOT about doing the landscaping there but due
to line of sight issues that idea had to be scrapped.
Terry suggested Nott Circle would be a good'project.
I concurred, and we went to work doing the prelimi-
naries. DOT gave their blessing and work was begun.
This project is a joint effort between the city of Live
Oak, Land Creations, G & G Enterprise, Suwannee
Parks and Recreation and our 269th Engineering
Company. Money were raised several years ago to
build the memorial to our 269th Engineering Compa-
ny in the circle. These funds were not needed at that
time to complete the. memorial. Mr. Earl Bembry, who
spearheaded the project, remitted $900 to the city.
These funds will be used in this project to enhance the
look of the memorial and the circle. By partnering the
expense of this project, we will have a beautiful addi-
tion to our city without costing any one group a large
amount. I'm sure you will like what you see when the
project is complete.
I was finally able to touch base with representatives
of the US Postal Service to discuss the status of the
new post office. The news was not good. According to
a spokesperson, all new construction, not just in Live
Oak, has been put on hold. I was told that our facility
was number three on the list. It was not known i.f that
was in our region or the entire country. I went through
my spiel about parking, traffic hazards and handicap
accessibility. They were understanding and sympa-
thetic. None of this mattered as funds are not avail-.
able to build new facilities according to them. Short-
falls in revenues from first class mail, the fact that the
Feds owe the postal service a billion dollars and hav-
ing to pick up the retirement of military personnel
working for the postal., service were reasons cited for
the shortage of dollars. I \\as aso told, by.' Congress-
man Boxd's office that the postal system has d\e'l-'
oped a ne\\ package sorting system-and 'that.less floor-
space is needed for new post offices so they are
downsizing buildings. Your guess. is as good. as mine
as to the real reason for the delay. Maybe the two cent
increase in rates will provide the funds needed. Hope-
fully, it won't take a tragedy or major law suit to
boost the building of a new post office. Sooner or lat-
er, a new facility will be built. I'll stay on top of it.
City Hall had new heating and air conditioning units
installed recently. The old units were constantly giv-
ing problems. Replacing these worn out units has
been delayed for years. Due to the high cost of the ex-
tensive repairs needed, it was not reasonable to con-
tinue to fix them. Council budgeted $47,000 this year-
to replace three of the units but due to the low bids,

COMMI
Diets: 'And there
There's not a day -goes
by that. the news wires
don't have something
S about diets, obesity or new
findings about certain
foods.
SThe other day I read
about the "Mayo Diet."
The best I can tell, this is
another one of those diets
where you can eat all you
I want of one type of food as
long as you don't mix it
-. with other types. And one
Dwain Walden might suspect that the
Mayo Clinic had some-
thing to do with it, but apparently not.
Then came the story that says you can't be obese and
healthy. This doesn't exactly explain why some skinny
people die and their pallbearers are very overweight.
And now comes a survey and they are a dime a
dozen that says Americans don't find obesity being
as unattractive as they used to.
Over a 20-year period, the percentage of Americans
who said they find overweight people less attractive
steadily dropped from 55 percent to 24 percent, the
market research firm NPD Group found.
With about two-thirds of U.S. adults overweight,
Americans seem more accepting of heavier body
types, researchers say.
Heck, I've always known that it's difficult to get
people to talk about themselves. This is a matter of ba-
sic math and mirrors.
While body image remains a constant obsession, the
national preoccupation with being thin has waned
since the late 1980s and early 1990s, said the NPD's
Harry Balzer. (I have no idea what NPD stands for.)'
The AP story noted that those were the days when
fast food chains rushed to install salad bars. In 1989,
salads as a main course peaked at 10 percent of all
restaurant meals. Today, those salad bars have all but
vanished.
Probably what happened with the salad bars is that
they are sort of a moot point if they accompany a 16-


q A' -T we were able to replace all five
units. The low bid was $27,584,
'OdR NE R which was $4,000 cheaper than
the next lowest bid. With the re-
bates and the energy savings
from the more efficient units, we
Figure they will pay for them-
selves in a few years. Due to the
fact that these units were old and
on the roof, they were also- very
NOBLES noisy, annoying and distracting
during meetings. The new units
have noise restricting pads which make a tremendous
difference in the noise level. We have also begun
changing out the lighting in City Hall to a more effi-
cient system. Plans are to retro-fit the new police fa-
cility with a more efficient lighting system as well.
The cost savings in taking these energy conservation
measures will be considerable over the coming years.
I have been remiss in not recognizing your new
Public Works Director, Tommy Cundiff. Tommy was
formerly the city's Code.Enforcement Officer and fa-
miliar with and involved in city programs and opera-
tions. He is doing an outstanding job in his new posi-
tion. A new code enforcement officer has bee hired
to replace Tommy. Tony Owens, an old home town
fellow, has taken over this position. Tony has a lot to
learn but has shown great interest and energy in his
first month on the job. We are sure these two men',will
serve you well in the future. *
Last week was filled with activities in celebration
of Martin Luther King's birthday. Many programs,
gatherings and a parade highlighted the event. Dr.
King brought about many social changes in this coun-
try and around the world that benefited every one of
us, not just African Americans. I suppose the biggest
issue, in Suwannee County during those turbulent
years when Dr. King was striving for social change
was the school integration issue. There were a few
marches, in Live Oak, but the integration of our
schools did not.have to be forced. From my recollec-
tion, things went very well. Except for a few bumps in:
the road, race relations in our community have been
pretty good.
I give business owners a heads-up in that you may
be approached by a promotional company, CGI. The
city and Suwannee County Chamber of Chamber are
working with this company to develop professional
promotional videos to appear on the city of Live Oak
web site. They will also donate to the city 25 WEL-
COME TO LIVE OAK type banners similar to the
Christmas banners that were recently hung. CGI will
give area businesses the opportunity to put advertise-
.mentso n these banners for;a fee. This program is sim-
'ilar to the advertising benches that are,;round town.
!These four videos will enable the city to present itself'
to website viewers. This is a great opportunity to pro-
fessionally proMote the city of Live Oak and present
all the opportunities that our city offers. This program
is sponsored and promoted by the Florida League of
Cities. Many cities in Florida have already taken ad-
vantage of this venture. Businesses are by no means
obligated to place advertisements on these banners. It
will however, be an opportunity to promote our city
and show the support of area businesses.
I heard on TV the other day that a person is 40 per-
cent less likely to be killed in a traffic accident if
seatbelts are worn. I like those odds.. How about you?
Wear yours, it's the law and it could also save your
life.

ENTARY
are no easy runs'
ounce New York strip, mashed potatoes, gravy and
sour dough bread. Just a hunch on my part. Doesn't in-
volve.math.
It's always been very difficult for me to just eat a
salad and leave it at that. And when I made a salad, it
probably wasn't what the doctor would have ordered
because I didn't stop with carrots and beets. There was
also macaroni and garden pea salad, potato salad,
chunks of cheese and other stuff.
You see, lettuce really has no nutritional value. But
I figured God went ahead and made some because He
knew one day that someone would invent blue cheese
dressing. And they did. And it's my favorite. Praise
the Lord!
Now back to that thing about the public's greater ac-
ceptance of fat folks. I suppose since there are more of
us, then it just stands to reason that the bar has been
raised maybe so we can get under it.
I'm not sure if it's about physics or an optical illu-
sion. The more people you have that are the same size
(in this case bigger), then the less comparison there is.
Remember chief Brody in "Jaws?" "It's only an island
if you look at it from the sea." Life is much about per-
spective anyway. Depends on how you view it.
Now please don't think that I'm making light of peo-
ple's efforts to lose weight. Nosiree Bob. I, too, have
weight issues. I can testify to how hard it is to lose it
and keep it off. And I'm kind of tired of hearing disc
jockeys .telling how much weight they have lost by
taking the latest in diet pills. They make it sound like
it just falls off right there in the hallway, and you'll
trip over it if you're not careful.
Strangely enough, I think the challenge to lose
weight is summed up in a country song of 35 years ago


- a truck driving ditty in which Dave Dudley pro-
claimed, "There are no easy runs." The song had
nothing to do with losing weight but somewhat poeti-
cally about moving lots of weight along treacherous
roads. Country music can get really deep, I'm telling
you, no less than the blue cheese dressing on my sal-
ads.

I walked out after a heavy rain.
Being cooped up was driving me insane.
I began to think of you as I saw the rainbow in the blue skies.
I fell to my knees, no longer could I hold these tears in my
eye's.
I miss my sweet Serinity so.
I looked up and knew that is Serinity's Rainbow.
Red for the blush in her perfect little cheeks.
Orange was her favorite color marshmallow peeps.
Yellow was the color of her favorite doll's hair.
Green was the color of her first bear.
Violet was the flowers on her pretty dress,
Indigo was the color of her bedtime bear's vest."
Blue was the color of her sparkling eyes.
Now I run out after the rain to look at the skies. ,-
God knows I miss my sweet Serinity so.
That's why He gave me Serinity's Rainbow.

Service members, veterans


The United States Navy
Memorial, located on Penn-
sylvania Avenue, in Wash-
ington, D.C., is a national
memorial which honors
those who served, and are
serving, in America's Sea
Services Navy, Marine
Corps, Coast Guard and
Merchant Marine.
The focus of the U.S. Navy
Memorial is not a particular'
type of ship, battle or con-
flict, but rather the individ-
ual whose service and sacri-
fice is honored and celebrat-
ed.
The heart of the U.S. Navy
Memorial is the Navy Log.
The Navy Log is the per-
manent public registry
where Sea Service members
and veterans can record
their service information -
name, duty stations,
awards, photos and memo-
ries. The Navy Log may be
viewed at the U.S. Navy
Memorial, or via the Inter-
net at www.lonesailor.org.
The goal of the memorial is
to record the service history
of all eligible uniformed in-
dividuals and veterans.
Now through the end of
July 2006, all members and
veterans of the Sea Services
- active duty and reservists
- are able to enroll in the
U.S. Navy Memorial's Navy
Log without charge and
without any obligation.
Family members and
friends can record service
information for veterans
who are deceased or .those
who are unable to record
their own information.
STo emioll \our iiiforn1.i- -

Raymond James Financial (NYSE-RJF) is a Florida-based diversified holding company provid-
ing financial services to individuals, corporations and municipalities through its subsidiary compa-
nies. Its' three wholly owned broker/dealers, Raymond James & Associates, Raymond James Fi-

To the extent that Raymond James makes or publishes forward-looking statements (regarding
management expectations, strategic objectives, business prospects, anticipated expense savings, fi-
nancial results, anticipated results of litigation and regulatory proceedings, and other similar mat-
ters), a variety of factors, many of which are beyond Raymond James' control, could cause actual
results and experiences to differ materially from the expectations and objectives expressed in these
statements. These factors are described in Raymond James' 2005 annual report on Form 10-K,

Mrs. Vickers' class makes


donation to hurricane victims


Students in Mrs. Vickers'
class at Suwannee High
School have been studying
about victims of hurricanes.
The students decided they
would like to help out in
some way. They started sav-
ing money in several differ-
ent ways. The students
picked up all the money on
the grounds around the cam-
pus. They brought in cans to
recycle and saved the money
from the sale of the cans. The
class also did a fund-raiser
with part of the money going
to the hurricane victims.

Jones and Moseley a check for
$950 for SPS night at Dairy
Queen. The Association of Par-
ents and Teachers coordinated
the fund-raiser. Funds will go
directly into teachers' class-
room budgets. PrFoi varne,

The class was lucky
enough to have a family from
Hurricane Katrina visit their
class. The students decided
that was the family they
wanted to help. Each of the
students wrote a letter to the
family expressing their con-
cern for them and that they
hope the money will help
them.
A call was made to Nicky
Williams and they asked her
to come and visit the class.
The students were very proud
to present her with the $75
they earned for them.

e How is carpet made?


A There are four main methods of carpet
construction Construction itself is not an
indication of quality and performance.
A*
Machine Woven: Include well known constructions
such as Axminster and Wilton. In both instances the pile
yarn and the backing yarn are made into a carpet at the
same time.
Tufted: The tufted construction utilises a prewoven
backing cloth into which yarns are tufted.
Bonded: Several methods are used to bond either
individual yams or a bat or web of fibres onto a pre
woven backing.
Hand Knotted: Mainly used to produce rugs and carpets
(called squares) and predominantly from the middle and
far East.

ton Counties. This is a service
BEC provides at no charge to the
community.
If you have a product or ser-
vice to sell, it's probably some-

buys. Each year, GSA-the Fed-
eral Government's business
manager, buyer, real estate de-
veloper, telecommunications
manager and computer solutions
provider-contracts for billions
of dollars worth of products and
services. Because it provides the
workspace, supplies, equipment
and support that other agencies
need to do their jobs, GSA is one
of the Federal Government's
biggest buyers.
GSA rents, builds, furnishes
and maintains government of-
fices and buys products ranging
from pens to state-of-the art
computers. Here are are a few exam-
ples of the thousands of products
and services the agency buys:
general-purpose supplies, equip-
ment and services; building con-'
struction, repair and 'mainte-
nance; and federal information
technology solutions and net-
work services.

Suwannee Valley
Builder's Association re-
cently completed a commu-
nity project to build a much
needed handicap ramp for
Viola Hendricks.
The builder's association
became aware of this need
through Cindy Erskin, Hen-
dricks' Hospice care
provider.
On Sept. 7, 2005, a work
crew consisting of associa-
tion members met at Hen-
dricks' home and construct-


ed the ramp. Shirley
Gomez, Hendricks' daugh-
ter was present and provid-
ed refreshments for the
work crew. She stated both
she and her mother were
thrilled the builder's associ-
ation did this for their fami-
ly because her mother loves
being able to get out in the
back yard and enjoy nature.
She had been unable to do
that for some time, due to
her condition and the need
for the ramp.

Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida), co-chairman of
the Congressional Rural Caucus
(CRC), today joined his col-
leagues in the CRC to unveil the
telecommunications priorities
for 2006. As Congress prepares
to re authorize the 1996
Telecommunications Act, the
CRC will work to ensure that all
Americans, regardless of where
they live, have access to afford-
able and reliable communica-
tions services.
"Rural America cannot be left
behind when it comes to nation-
al policy decisions," said Con-
gressman Boyd. "As we re-ex-
amine the Telecommunications
Act this year, we must encom-
pass the needs of all types of
communities so that all Ameri-
cans can have access to ad-
vanced broadband services at
affordable rates."
Additionally, the CRC will
host a series of Member briefin-
gs to promote fair and afford-
able access to telecommunica-
tions services across the coun-
try.
*Strengthening the Universal
Service Fund (USF) to improve


access to telephone services and
other resources in rural areas
*Improving intercarrier com-
pensation to help utilize more
networks
*Enhancing network access
and interconnection
*Expanding access to ad-
vanced broadband in rural ar-
eas-essential for rural America
to remain competitive
"We must have fair prices for
high-speed Internet, not only to
retain and attract good jobs in
rural America, but also to im-
prove the overall quality of our
lives," Boyd stated. "The small
telecommunications providers
in our rural districts represent
the sense of community and en-
trepreneurial spirit that made
America great, and I will work
with the CRC and Congress to
ensure that these companies
have .a voice in developing
communications laws for the
21st century."
The CRC is a bipartisan col-
lection of more than 140 mem-
bers of the House of Represen-
tatives committed to strengthen-
ing and revitalizing rural com-
munities across America.

It's "a new wrinkle to an old
trick," said Third Circuit As-
sistant State Attorney Robert
L. "Skip" Jarvis Jr. who han-
dles these type cases for State
Attorney Jerry Blair. The "in-
ternational lottery" company
proposes to send you the bal-
ance of funds less the advance
amount listed on the check, or
so it says, according to Jarvis.
Jarvis says smart consumers
won't deposit the check or
cash it. Instead, they will con-
sider:
1. Whether you have en-
tered such a lottery. You can-
not win a contest you have not
entered.
2. Take note of the docu-
ments presented. A legitimate
company will not send you a
zeroxed winner's notification
or a prize award, certificate
printed on a home printer. In
light of the amount of money
they are claiming, they should
have first class printed sta-
tionery and forms. Additional-
ly, a legitimate prize notifica-
tion would be mailed first
class mail, not. "bulk rate."
3. Consider what they are
asking you to do to receive
your prize. They do not need
your banking or financial in-
formation in order to send you


a check. While a legitimate
company may possibly need
your social security number to
report your winnings to the
Internal Revenue Service,
they will make that plain up
front.
4. Check them out. It only
takes a telephone call to check
out the background of the
business contacting you. If
they are legitimate, they will
make every effort to provide
you with information about
their company. Check with the
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services to see
if there have been any com-
plaints against this company
(you can find these sites at
myflorida.com). '
5. Ask law enforcement
whether they have any infor-
mation.on the company. Often
a local agency may not have
any information, but they can
do some follow-up to find out
what they can.
6. Never, never, never give
out your banking, personal or
financial information to any-
one you are unfamiliar with.
Do some digging into who
they are and why they want it.
7. Don't be rushed into re-
sponding to the notice. If the
company is legitimate, they


will give you ample time to
confirm their information. .If
they are unwilling to give you
that time, be forewarned they
have some motive for denying
ample time.
8. Consider whether they
will give you a full name for
any individual you are dealing
with. Often, you will only get
a "Sarah"or "Mr. Fields" in-
stead of a full name.
9.Consider whether they will
give you a firm name and ad-
dress for their office. If they
cannot or will not do that, you
are forewarned that you will
not be able to find them when
and if problems arise.
10. Remember that with
globalization and the Internet,
the individual you deal with
may not be in Atlanta or New
York, but may actually be in
eastern Europe or Asia. Once
you have become a victim, it
is very unlikely you will ever
be able to recover your losses.
Jarvis, who handles these
type of cases regularly, warns
that people should not chose
to be victims. "Ask questions.
Demand answers and check
out those answers before you
respond," he advocates. "You
are the first line of defense
(and often the last) if you have


dealt with the wrong people."
"The State Attorney's Of-
fice in Live Oak has an Eco-
nomic Crime Unit that will be
happy to discuss these matters
with you in order to better
protect you from scams and
consumer fraud. The more
you know, the better off and
safer you and your money will
be."

the changes at the next meet-
ing.
Assistant Superintendent of
Administrative Services Bill
Yanossy has been working
hard on additions and revi-
sions to the policy manual,
many of which will .affect stu-
dents.
One proposed addition af-
fecting students is to establish
a wellness program which
calls for nutrition education,
physical activity and other
school-based activities to pro-
mote wellness for students
and employees. Also involved
would be nutritional guide-
lines for foods provided at
each school and the designa-
tion of a wellness coordinator.
School Food Service Coor-
dinator Rhonda Lepper and
School Health Services Coor-
dinator Margaret Wooley have
established a committee to
collect data and set the new
policy for the state to review
before it goes to the Board.
"We are looking at provid-
ing food choices high in nutri-
tiontal value yet attractive to
students," Lepper said.
The new policy will go into
affect in the upcoming school
year.
Another new policy pro-
posed is to provide a safe en-
vironment tfor students by
adding a bullying, threats and
intimidation policy for stu-
dents who participate in such
acts to be disciplined in accor-
dance with the Code. of Stu-
dent Conduct and Florida

It does not take long for +he five year old and the fifty year old to be captivated by the music of Warren
Barfield! The passion that is displayed as Warren plays his guitar, and sings his original heart-fel songs,
is contagious. Warren began singing and playing the guitar as a child in North Carolina, where he grew
up as a pastor's son. As he reached his early teen years, he began traveling more extensively, wherever
the doors were opened. 1+ has now grown into a full fime ministry. Warren admits, "It's unreal fhat I get
to go places and sing songs fhaft 1e gave me while I was praying about something fhat I was going

Board member Muriel

counter with a student cross-

she said.

"Speed bumps are usually
reserved for residential neigh-
borhoods," he said.
Farley said some of the
things that might be done is
placing caution lights along
the road, channeling pedestri-
an crossing and placing
school guards at certain loca-
tions.
"We will see what we can
do to ensure our streets are
safe, but it will have to go be-

When road issues arise the
city consults its Uniform

which provides guidance for
what needs to be done under

meet Sammi, who will charm
you and then graciously accept
your invitation to make her
home with you.
2886 RILEY Seven
months old, tan, male. Riley is
the newest addition to our clan.
He fits right in; friendly, play-
ful and a real dog's dog. How-
ever, that doesn't mean he
wouldn't rather belong to his
own human family. It's what
we wish for all our boys and
girls; it's what they all wish for
too.

Female. Well, a special pet.

he is absolutely adorable and a

yearned to have a slinky living
fur piece to drape around your


er.

new and VERY adoptable new
resident. If you've never
waltzed with Matilda, now's
your chance; the lady is game
if you are. She would be such
a nice addition to anyone's
home, but like most coy ladies
she'd like to be coaxed, so
come make your best offer.
2786 WHISKERS One
and a half year old, white with
black, male. Well, who would
suspect that such a macho
looking, handsome and manly
fellow would be such a cud-
dle-bug? A hard shell with a
soft and sweet inside, just like
a favorite candy. This is truly a
lovely and lovable boy.
2855 SATIN Three
months old, black with white,
female. Now this is a cat who
has a perfect name. A satin doll
with a'*personality that shines


like the evening star. If there is
room in your home for a little
touch of pure glamour and
room in your heart for just a lit-
tle more love, we want to intro-
duce you to our Satin.

Senior catcher signs with NFCC

_______ .. Taylor Abercrombie to play at the next level


Janet Schrader
Democrat Reporter
Suwannee's senior catcher, Taylor
Abercrombie, has signed with NFCC.
Abercrombie was last year's Defensive
Player of the Year and allowed only two
passed balls all season. According to his
dad Tommy Abercrombie, Taylor has
been catching since his days as a Bullpup
at Suwannee Middle School.
"I'm excited about him getting a schol-
arship," Tommy Abercrombie said. "Tay's.
worked real hard. He's never missed a sin-
gle game through injury."
Taylor played baseball for the Tallahas-
see Titans during the fall this year, and it
was his play for the Titans that drew'
NFCC coach Steve Given's notice.
"He emerged as the Titans' number-one
catcher and hit really well, too," said mom
Angela Abercrombie. Givens noticed Tay-

lor when the Titans played NFCC.
"I'm really excited about getting tq
play for Coach Givens," Taylor said. "The
Panhandle Conference is probably the
most competitive in the state, so it will be
fun. I'd like to thank my coaches, team-.
mates, and dad for helping me reach'this
goal."
"We've had a lot guys get an opportuni-
ty to play at the next level, but I could not
be happier about it happening for Taylor,"
said Suwannee High baseball coach Ron-
nie Gray. "When you're the younger
brother of a good player, it, casts a long
shadow, and Taylor is now out from under
that. Taylor had the opportunity to attend
Tallahassee Community College and
chose North Florida, and I personally
think this is going to be a great fit for Tay-
lor. We are expecting and need a big year
out of Taylor from a catching and offen-
sive standpoint if this team is going to
reach it's full potential."

Ladly Dog Soccer -"a i'i"""W. 'khip

for third straight year


By Jon Wood
The SHS Lady Bulldogs soccer team has
earned a spot in the FHSAA Girls Soccer
Champions-hip for the third consecutive
season, this )ear as the district 3-4A runner-
up. After a hard fought 1-0 victory over
Middleburg in the district 3-4A semifinals
or \\ednesdax, the Lady Dogs faced
Ridgeview on Friday for the district cham-
pionship, Suwannee played well but could


not overcome the two tirst half goals scored
by the Lady Panthers and lost 2-0. Suwan-
nee (14-7-1) will travel to Jacksonville to
face Stanton Prep (17-6-4), the district 4-
4A champion, on Thursday in a regional
quarterfinal game.
In the district semifinal match on
Wednesday the Lady Dogs had their hands

Senior Cheretta Ross had a game-high
20 points with junior Shalisa Cuyler scor-
ing 12 points connecting on four three-
pointers. With the win, the Lady Dogs
locked up the third seed in regular season
district play and will most likely play
Middleburg (sixth seed) for a chance to
advance at the district tournament.
The Lady Dogs traveled to Baker Thurs-


day, Jan. 19 for their final district game of
the season. The girls took on the Bake
Lady Wildcats on their senior-night. The
team was coming off a disappointing loss
to state-ranked Shekinah Christian Acade-
my. Suwannee coaches didn't know how
the Lady Dogs would respond to Baker af-
ter the defeat.
According to Lady Dog coach Philip
Petway, the defeat to Shekinah showed in.'

was a high-scoring 82-71 contest including
24 points from three-point baskets.


The game began with Ryan Hight, Nate

Doe was in Gainesville and Jevon Smith was

Keaton Beach fishing report


Trout were cooperative
before the blow over the
weekend. Several boats
had limits of trout last
Thursday and Friday be-
fore the W-I-N-D kicked
up Saturday.
James and Kim Bethea
of Perry took MirrOlure
Catch 2000s out in two
feet of water and had a
blast catching Big trout.
Kirh said they managed
four in the slot and two
over 25 inches and threw
back the rest due to them
all being over 20-inches
long. Great problem to
have. Her son, Lucas went
out later the same day and
caught his one-over-20, a
trout 24-inches long and
had to release the rest. He
also fished the Catch 2000.
Mickey Wheeler, of
Thomasville, Ga. and his
buddy Terry Scott of Har-
ris Bluff, Ga. had six keep-
ers Friday fishing Bite-A-
Bait fighter plugs. Terry
had his three on his secret
plug he calls "Dirty Mul-
let" It's a plug by Bass Pro
Shops..is all I have right
now?
Several boats went off-


shore in the fog last week,
including Billy Pillow and
I on the Team Triple Fish
Triton. We made it to 68
feet and managed a cou-
ple of keeper grouper and


ten triggerfish. We had a
.blast catching trigger on
ten pound test Triple Fish
Perlon. The short grouper
were all that really want-
ed to play, as we must


have caught over 2 dozen
out there.

Lady Wildcats outplayed
Suwannee 8-11 by the end
of the first. But the second
quarter belonged to the
Lady Dogs as Ross and
Cuyler took charge scoring
eight and six points respec-
tively, including three
three-point baskets. With a
couple of free throws from
junior Dominique Reed
and sophomore Jasmine
Jefferson, the Lady Dogs
outscored Baker 16-9 in
the second quarter. Suwan-
nee was up 24-20 at the
half.
The third quarter was all
Lady Dogs as they built a
10-point lead behind Ross'
eight points and a three
pointer from Cuyler in the
third. At the end of three
quarters of play, Suwannee
led 37-29.
But the Bake County
girls were determined to
play hard until the end for
senior night. Petway said it
showed in the fourth quar-
ter as they closed on an 11-
6 run and pulled to within
one point with less than a
minute to play in the game.
Petway said rebounding
saved the Lady Dogs. They
came up with two huge of-
fensive rebounds while
miss-firing on trips to the
free-throw line. With 3.9
seconds left, Suwannee
missed two free throws
giving Baker one last
chance at a desperation
shot from half court. The
Lady Wildcats missed that
shot as time expired on the
game clock. Suwannee
won the game 43-42.
Cheretta Ross led the
scoring with 20 points.
Shalisa Cuyler had 12. Jas-


~1


mine Jefferson scored five
-points. Shasmin Montague
scored three. Laronda But-


ler scored two points and
Dominique Reed scored
one.

boys soccer undefeated

The Suwannee Middle School boys'
and girls' soccer teams played Lake
City the second week in January.
Bullpup soccer is undefeated and has
had a spectacular year. The Pups de-
feated Lake City Middle for the sec-
ond time this year 4-1. The girls lost
to Lake Citv by a score of 0-3, but the
coaches felt giving up only three
goals to Lake City Middle was a defi-
nite improvement over theirf'last
meeting. No goals were given up in
the second half.

Beware your


self-serving

bias


* 3-


Why do you see the speck that is inl
your brother's eve, but do not noticeL
the log that is in your oi'lln eve?
R.S.V Luke 6:41


We tend to have a self-serning bias in
mnany areas of daily life. To illustrate
this, the comedian George Carlin
once said, "Why is it that everyone
driving slower than me is an idiot and
e\erVone driving faster than me is a
maniac?" The reason for this is our
self-serx ing bias. We tend to see
things our way, and to assume that
others are just wrong. Consider how
we tend to judge ourselveP ,
others: we often judge-othe
in exactly the same circu
where we would judge ou '"
charitably. For example, when we
give a small tip at a restaurant, we are
likely to rationalize that it is because
of poor service: however, when
someone else leaves a small tip. we
are likely to judge that the person is
cheap. Our judgements., whether r
about ourselves or others, tend to be
rationalizations,
which are essentially defense
mechanisms designed to protect our
ego. And that. in the final analysis,
may be the reason we have this self-
serving bias: to protect our egos. \We
are naturally selfish creatures, and the
sooner w\e realize this, the easier it is
to overcome our self-serv ing biases.

Georgia boy comes to Florida and takes monster buck


RECORD BREAKING BUCK: Cody Thomas of Savannah, Ga. takes
monster deer in Leon County and places 10th in the Florida Buck
Registry of white-tailed deer taken in Florida. Photo: Submitted


Cody Thomas of Sa-
vannah, Ga. had no idea
he would be harvesting
Florida's 10th-highest-
scoring deer when he ac-
cepted an offer to go


hunting with his girl-
friend's brother, but that
is exactly what hap-
pened.
Thomas took the tro-
phy buck Nov. 20 on pri-


vate land in Leon Coun-
ty at the beginning of the
general gun season. He
then anxiously awaited
the official score of the
buck's antlers to come
back from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission
(FWC) to learn how his
deer would stack-up
against the biggest deer
ever taken in the state as
listed in the Florida Buck
Registry. The registry,
established in 1982, pro-
vides an opportunity for
hunters to register antler
scores and other infor-
mation about white-
tailed deer taken in'
Florida.
Thomas was invited to
Monticello for a week-


end of deer hunting by
Brad Benners of Talla-
hassee. Benners, who is
listed twice in last year's
Florida Buck Registry
for taking two monster
deer off the property the
year before, knows the
tract has superb genetics
and offered his sister's
boyfriend a great oppor-
tunity to take his first
quality whitetail.
The previous week-
end, Benners set Thomas
up in a box stand, over-
looking a one-acre field
planted in oats, where
Thomas took his first
buck ever a nice nine-
point. Then, on that
memorable afternoon,
Thomas was again sit-
ting in the same stand


LAKE CITY, FL Dennis
Conway and Randy Sears, Sales.
'Mtdngerts 'f: Sunbelt' Chtryler-
Jeep-Dodge, announced plans
today for a great new way to
buy cars that's simple and inex-
pensive. This unique sales
event, also known as the
"Automotive 'Insider' Sale,"
has been sweeping the U.S.
Customers who come to this
sale are on the 'Inside' to great
savings on the new or used
vehicle of their choice, all for
just a low initial down payment
of only $29* based on lender
approval, and creditworthiness.
The event will be held for just
five days, from Thursday,
January 26th thru Tuesday,
January 31st, regardless of
weather.
Conway offers a simple expla-
nation for this unprecedented
sale, "As one of the largest
dealerships in the area we're
overstocked with high quality
vehicles from lease turn-ins,
program car trade-ins, new
vehicle duplications and more."
He adds, "I can't remember the
last time so many rare opportu-
nities were available to us at
one time so we decided to let
our customers take advantage
of these incredible values
rather than sell them to whole-
salers or strangers at the auc-
tions." During "The


where he contemplated
harvesting another huge
deer that had appeared
around 5:15 p.m. With
the use of a two-way ra-
dio, Thomas described
to Benners the 10-point
buck he was looking at,
and Benners said,. "It's
still early," and suggest-
ed he wait and see if
something bigger came
out.
Just a half-hour later,
around 5:45 p.m.,
Thomas' trophy deer
stepped into the field.
With just one shot,
Thomas had his second
deer within a week, sec-
ond buck of his lifetime
and the s'econd-best deer
on record ever to come
out of Leon County. The

235-pound deer even
dwarfed the 215-pound
Thomas, a football play-
er at Valdosta State Uni-
versity. The deer's
antlers had 13 scorable
points with the inside
spread measuring 19.5
inches.
Don Francis, FWC bi-
ologist at Joe Budd
Wildlife Management
Area took the official
measurements and gave
the deer a gross Boone
and Crockett score of
165-4/8 and a net score
of 154-6/8. The net score
earns Thomas a tie for
the state's 10th highest-
scoring, typical white-
tailed deer on record.
Jesse Roberts, who took
a' 12-pointer from Jeffer-
son County in 2002,
shares that record.
"That hunting trip
gave me a much-needed
break and was a great re-
ward for all the hard
work I had put in at foot-
ball practice and with
my studies. I'm very
grateful for what Brad
has done for me,"
Thomas said.
So far, Thomas' buck is
the front-runner for this
hunting season's high-
,est-scoring deer. Need-
less to say, Thomas en-
joyed a great Thanksgiv-
ing as his finest Christ-
mas present ever, came
early. "' '
Dr. Robert Vander-
hoof, biologist and
leader of the FWC's Deer
Management Program,
said the northern-tier
counties like Leon pro-
duce the majority of
Florida's record deer.
"It starts with the soil,"
Vanderhoof said. "Many
of Florida's northern
counties share the same
fertile clay soils found
throughout Alabama
and Georgia."
These fertile soils pro-
duce more nutritious
deer forage than the
sandier soils of central
and south Florida.
"The second factor,"
Vanderhoof said, "is
abundant and consistent
rainfall. North Florida's
average annual rainfall
is significantly higher
and more evenly distrib-
uted throughout the year
than in the rest of the
state."
Consistent rainfall gen-
erates a better food sup-
ply than in areas where
prolonged dry spells are
more common. Fertile
soils, plus consistent fre-
quent rainfall equals
abundant nutritious for-
age, the fundamental
precursors to growing
larger deer.
The minimum antler
score eligible for Flori-
da's Buck Registry is 100
Boone and Crockett
points for typical antlers


and 125 for non-typical.
Hunters who may have
harvested such a deer
can get it registered by
contacting an FWC re-
gional office or visiting
MyFWC.com / hunting.

ing as his lyrics paint the
picture of a believer's on-
going relationship with
Christ.
Barfield began singing
and playing the guitar as
a child in North Carolina,
where he grew up as a


pastor's son. As he reached his early teen years, he began
traveling more extensively, wherever the doors were opened.
It-has now grown into a full time ministry.
Barfield seems equally comfortable doing hundreds of
dates a year playing at churches and camps across the coun-
try. He has also captivated crowds of thousands during events
such as national, regional, state and local youth conferences,
and at various schools and colleges. Bafield has also had the
privilege of opening for a number of top Christian artists in-
cluding Clear, Russ Lee, Scott Krippayne, Anointed and
Crystal Lewis.
Barfield is a talented singer, songwriter and musician, but
these abilities alone do not define him. He is an anointed
young minister who regularly stops strumming his guitar in


concert long enough to relay Biblical truth. He also enjoys the
time away from the stage, where he makes friends of his lis-
teners. This has made him a favorite ofboth youth and youth
workers around the country. His grounded advice seems to go
well beyond his 23 years of life experience. "When I was
growing up, I always said I would do something for God
when I was older," Barfield explains. "But God taught me
that I didn't have to wait, that he has a ministry for me now
and that He has a ministry for everyone, no matter how old
or young they are. It's amazing how God has proved that to
be true in my life."
Barfield admits, "It's unreal that I get to go places and sing
songs that He gave me while I was praying about something
that I was going through. And I get to see these songs that I
thought were just for me minister to others from all walks of
life. That's what keeps me going-I know God's involved!"

ERSON: Making evangelism good news again


By John Avant
-Well, everything
changed for our family over
the holidays. My first-born
child, my sweet gifted and
a beautiful daughter, Christi,
is now engaged.
It happened while we
were on vacation. We
Jo.Avant, brought Christi's boyfriend,
John Avant, Matt, with us so he could
Baptist Press have some time with our
whole family. Now, Matt is a wonderful young man.
Responsible, a strong and growing Christ-follower,
and deeply in love with my daughter. But it still al-
most took my breath away when he told me on the
first night of our vacation that he wanted to spend the
rest of his life with my daughter and asked my per-
mission to propose to her. When I regained my com-
posure, I prayed a blessing over him and helped him
get ready for a treasure hunt that sent Christi to each
member of our family before finally ending up with
-. N artti. ,',ddie .' ->;,'ktix j, ek5 -and uJ.p ..pc'd As
she said yes, we all were secretly watching from a
distance and began to cheer. What a moment!
Since then, how difficult do you think it has been
for me to tell people about my daughter's engage-
ment? Do you think I have been afraid to tell any-
one? Have I been'too busy?.Or felt like it was some-
one else's job or not my gift? Of course hot! I have
wonderful news to 'tell. A wonderful man loves my
daughter and has committed his life to her. I can't
wait to talk about it!
That's how evangelism is meant to be. A wonder-
fuld Man loves my daughter... and my whole family,
and the entire world even me. And He has com-
mitted His life to us forever, even to the point of dy-
ing for us. Yet now He lives with life, passion,
purpose and ultimate love to give. His name is Jesus,


and I intend to tell everyone I can about what He has
done. Why would I not? Should I be afraid to talk
about Him? That would be so silly, only the devil
himself could convince me of that. Is that what Sa-
tan is doing to you? Well, don't put up with it any-
more!
It is so important for us to make new friends who
don't know Christ and stop spending all our time

with other Christians. We are a mission force, not a
club. When we do this, God brings such joy into our
lives. Christmas Day was a reminder of this for me.
We got back from vacation on Christmas Eve, and I
opened the mail the next day. There was a letter from
a friend I met while working out in a fitness center.
We hit it offand he came to faith in Christ as I shared
with him while we were lifting weights. He wrote to
thank me and let me know he was doing well. '
He wrote, "Isn't it interesting that two guys
opened their minds to each other while we worked
out our bodies so my soul could be changed!" Wow!
That same day we shared Christmas dinner with
some of our best friends in the world, a couple I led
t (lt-vilt v. hen she :..- a Bt iluhi.r, and he.r"I an
atheist. No%' she is pteginat, and \\e feel this child
will be a part of our family. What unequaled joy! I
,just can't describe how much I want thisjoy for you.
It is so easy to share good news with friends. And it
is the essence of the authentic Christian life. It is my
passion and my mission in the year ahead to help
Southern Baptists live this good news life.
I'll also be telling all who are interested about the
joy of an upcoming marriage in our family. Have a
wonderful New Year making evangelism good
news again.

Bring back the best moments of childhood

- -Parenting Expert Stacy DeBroff Provides Simple Tips for Recreating the Best Moments of Our Own Childhoods for Kids of Today


) Many of today's
parents grew up in a
more leisurely time
when parents and their
children would bond
over simple, everyday
moments. But today's
families are so busy
and rushed that they
have often lost the art
.* of creating laugh-filled

P s y '~ ~ ~ -


moments with their
kids.
Luckily, with a little
creativity, it can be
easy to recreate those
lost moments of
yesterday for kids of
today. "Too often, we
get caught up in the
hustle and bustle of
daily life, and we


forget to make time for
our loved ones," says
Stacy DeBroff, best-
selling author and
parenting expert. "If
we take advantage of
the simple moments
that life provides us,
we can create warm
moments that our
children will remember

for years."
* We all know
schedules are busy -
between soccer
practice, ballet lessons
and music class, it's
often challenging for
families to spend time
together. Pick one night
a week and make it
family night no
excuses! Consider a
classic movie night:
pop popcorn and watch
a movie that was one of
your favorites growing
up. Or play a board
game or simply read
part of a long book
together.
Consider an indoor
picnic with the little
ones. Keep it simple by
ordering pizza and
eating off paper plates
while sitting on the
floor. It's not the meal
itself that matters, but
'the family togetherness
that will be special.
Go for a walk after
dinner with the whole
family. Pick a
discussion topic
beforehand and get
everyone involved in
the conversation plus,
the exercise will be
good for you.
* And we can't forget
the tradition of
laughter! Many of
today's parents grew
up using Georgia-
* Pacific's Dixie Riddles
for Kids cups: a time
when riddle-telling
after teeth-brushing
was as much a tradition
as storytelling after
dinner. Now these
family bathroom
favorites are back in
stores with a new look,
and cracking kids up
with their kid-friendly
brain-teasers and smile-
inspiring graphics.
For more ideas thatwill
help you bring back the
best moments of
childhood for today's
kids, visit
