Melissa Brinson is District Teacher


Susan K. Lamb,
Democrat Managing Editor

Vanessa FultZ, Democrat Reporter

Eight outstanding teachers in the
Suwannee County Schools District
have been chosen to represent their
schools as teachers of the year for the
school year 2005-06. One has already
.been named Suwannee County's


Teacher of the Year.
Suwannee Middle School Teacher
of the Year Melissa Brinson was sur-
prised Jan. 27 when school and Dis-
trict officials walked into her class-
room to tell her she had been named
the 2005-06 Suwannee County
Teacher of the Year. Brinson was tak-
en back by her selection to the presti-
gious honor but humbly accepted the
congratulations and gifts of flowers
she was presented by all present.


"I was completely surprised be-
cause the interviews for the selections
were done Wednesday, two days be-
fore I was notified," Brinson, a sev-
enth grade science teacher at SMS,
said.
When Brinson saw Superintendent
Walter Boatright enter her classroom
it didn't occur to her the Teacher of
the Year decision had already been

Goat does not taste like chicken.


According to local meat-goat pro-
ducer Janet Sampson. it tastes a lot
like venimon. According.to FAMU
Small Farms Management Spe-
cialist Phillip Petway, goat has a


good. lean. meaty taste and is not
fatt) at all. Meat goat farms are
popping up all over the state.
These fanners are hoping to make
goat a regular part of e% er.,one's
diet.
According to the U.S. Depart-
ment of .griculture, there are
more than 1.700 farms raising ,
goats in Florida. Right here in
Suwannee Counnt Petw\ay said


Meat goats are a
growing industry in
Suwannee County
there are 10.to 12 big meat-goat
producers raising between 75 -
100 head of goats and an innu-
merable number of banners and

What will Suwannee County look like in the year 2020?


JESSIE SAMPSON AND LEVI: If you've been to. the Suwannee County Fair or
own meat goats, you probably know about Levi. Levi has sired more meat
goats in Suwannee County than any other herd sire. Levi has a gentle tem-
perament which increases his desirability. Photo: Janet Schrader

Answers to this question were
explored by business owners and
public officials at a Suwannee
River Water Management District
(SRWMD) report luncheon Jan.
26.
SRWMD Executive Office Ex-
ecutive Director Jerry Scarbor-
ough discussed the need for eco-
nomic growth in Suwannee Coun-
ty while presenting facts, figures
and graphs. In a powerpoint pre-
sentation, Scarborough quoted the
United States Department of Com-
merce and Bureau of Economic
Analysis in 2003 showing $30,098
as the per capital income for Flori-
da and $20,439 as the per capital
income for Suwannee County.
"There's no doubt we need eco-
nomic growth in Suwannee Coun-
ty," he said.
Scarborough illustrated growth


in the county by showing the dras-
tic increase of pennits obtained
since 1994. Quoting the Florida
Statistical Abstract from 2004 and
the Enterprise Florida Regional
Profile from 2004, he said the


population projections for Suwan-
nee County for 2004 was 37,681.
For 2020 the projections are
50,500, an increase of 34 percent.'-

GUEST COMMENTARY

Bush strikes confident

tone in address to nation

Bush rallies country in

State of Union speech
CNHI News Service The Eagle-Tribune.,
,North Andover, Mass.

This was a speech that began with a tribute
to a civil rights leader, Coretta Scott King,
who'd passed away, that morning, and ended
with a call to make this "a compassionate, de-
cent, hopeful society'."
The temptation for President Bush Tuesday
might have been to complain, as Queen Eliza-
Sbeth did in 1992, of an "annus horriblis," for'
the first year ofhis second term has not been
a particularly good one.
War continues to rage. in Iraq. His plan for
reforming Social Security failed to gain trac-
tion, and the much-touted Medicare prescrip-
tion drug has created more confusion than
celebration among the nation's elderly. Re-
publicans i "Congress'fret about 'the fallout'
from a burgegn Tcand l, ,nd ,sh's
favorability rating, which stood at 84 percent
when he addressed the nation at this time in
2002, was down to an" anemic 39 percent, ac-
cording to the Wall Street Journal/NBC.News
poll released this week.
Yet it was a confident, determined and
sometimes even defiant George Bush who ad-
dressed the joint session of Congress Jan. 31,1'
urging Americans to continue their leader-.
ship role on everything from the quest for.
peace in the Middle East to the eradication of
disease to the development of new energy
technology.
"In this decisive year, you and I will make
choices that determine both the future and the
character of our country," Bush declared. "We
will choose to act confidently in pursuing the
enemies of freedom, or retreat from our duties
in the hope of an easier life.We will choose to
build our prosperity by leading the world
economy, or shut ourselves off from trade and
opportunity.,
Having just that morning won Senate ap-
proval for his appointment of Samuel Alito to
the Supreme Court, the president appeared
upbeat as he mounted the podium in the
House chamber, then sought to rally the na-
tion to the several formidable challenges that,.
face it in the years ahead.
For the advocates of terror, he had this mes-
sage: "We love our freedom, and wve will fight
to keep it.", To critics of his national security
policies, he said, "We will not sit back and
wait to be hit again."
Whether voters heed his plea to stay the
course, both here and abroad, will not be
known until November when the results of
the 2006 congressional elections have been
tallied. But Bush made clear in his State of the
Union speech that he is not conceding any-


thing to anyone at this difficult juncture in his
presidency.

CNHI News Service The Lebanon (Ind.) Reporter

Air Force Technical Sgt. Jamie Dana could give
Cindy Sheehan some lessons in dignity and decorum.
Dana brought her dog, Rex, to the halls of Congress
Tuesday. Sheehan brought a T-shirt. Rex brought
more class.
Both were in the audience before President George
Bush gave his fifth annual State. of the Union address.,
Dana was a guest of First Lady Laura Bush. Sheehan
was in the House of Representatives gallery but
not for long.
Sheehan, the anti-Iraq-war mom who camped out at
Bush's Texas ranch for weeks, insisting on a personal
meeting to find out why her son died in Iraq, was
ejected from the building after she doffed a blouse,
unveiling a T-shirt with an anti-war slogan.
Such exhibitions are not permitted in the House,
Sheehan was told before she was carted off in hand-
cuffs.
Had she simply sat there, politely applauding at the
appropriate moments and folding her hands when
the President spoke of Iraq, Sheehan could have made
a profound impact.
She opted for tacky, and was gently tossed out
on her ear.
Until a roadside bomb in Iraq blew Dana into a
coma last June, she and Rex were a team that
searched for explosives. They'd done the same job in
Afghanistan and Pakistan, before being transferred to
Iraq.

. The Air Force spent $18,000 training Rex to find
bombs before they go off. He probably would have
sniffed out the one that put Dana in a coma, but they
were riding in a Humvee. The bomb went off under-
neath her seat.
Rex suffered a burnt nose, cut paw and a bump on,
his head. Dana's back and pelvis were broken and
both lungs collapsed. She was in a coma for a month.
* The last thing Dana said before passing out was, "Is
my dog dead?" Medics told her he was. "That broke
my heart," Dana told reporters.
The gallant Rex survived. Dana has recovered and
plans to become a veterinarian after she is dis-
charged.
Rex has been discharged, too, but it took an Act of
Congress sponsored by Rep. John Peterson,. R-Pa. to
allow Dana to adopt her canine partner. The Air Force
wanted to keep Rex for another five years, because it
had invested so much money in his training.
Sometimes, practicality deservedly runs second to
sentiment. -
So Dana and Rex and others, including the family of
Marine Staff Sgt. Dan Clay, 27, were with the First'
Lady. Rex even had an assigned seat, in the aisle. Sgt.
Clay couldn't be there he was killed in action on
Dec. 1 in Fallujah.
Sheehan had a ticket given her by Rep. Lynn
Woolsey, a California Democrat.
It was the only ticket Woolsey had to distribute.
Hopefully, she won't waste the next one.

The suspect, Theryon Coy Jones, 27,
9507 102nd Street, was arrested after
deputies tracked him to his home where he
confessed to the crime, a report on the inci-
dent said. Jones was arrested on charges of
sexual battery of a person over 65 years of
age and burglary. He was placed in the
Suwannee County Jail where his bond has
been set at $75,000, according to jail
records.
- According to a report filed by Suwannee
County Deputy Ben Sears, a 911 call took
him to the victim's home Tuesday where the
victim told him an unknown white male
broke into her residence through the front
door and shoved her to floor and began at-


Goat


tacking her. The woman apparently put up a
fight, giving the attacker reason to want to
get away from the victim, who called 911 as
soon as the attacker left the home.
Deputy Sears found shoe tracks during his
investigation, which led Deputy Scott Gam-
ble to a residence where Jones was found
and admitted to the assault, the report said.
The report said Jones told officers he made
his way to the victim's home with the intent
of sexually battering her and "watched her
'through the window for some time until he
decided to break into the home."
The victim received injuries that required
medical attention, Sears said in the report.

sometimes-farmers raising just a few. Samp-
son said there are at least 15 producers with
more than 40 head.
Sampson said many people get into raising
goats because it-requires less land and less ef-
fort than cattle. Beef farmers are retiring from
the cattle business and raising themselves a
small herd of goats.
There are many benefits to having goats on
land. They are more related to deer than sheep
or cows which makes them browsers.
Browsers eat mid-range growing things. Goats
will turn up their noses at grass and scarf up
weeds. At Sampson's farm, where she has 40
breeding adults due to kid in March grazing a
60-acre hay field, there wasn't a weed to be
found. Sampson said they eat sand spurs, bri-
ars and they love kudzu vines.
If you want to raise livestock, goats are a
good alternative to cattle. The animals are
smaller than cows, gentler, easier to handle
and let's face it, the kids are as cute as they
can be.
"You can generate more revenue with goats
on small acreage than with beef," said Exten-
sion Agent I, Commercial Agriculture Jason
Chandler. "It's a growing small farm crop or
livestock crop. There is an increasing interest
in meat goats as an option to beef cattle."
On the Sampson goat farm, they raise regis-
tered Boer goats. Boer goats are those muscu-
lar, mid-sized white goats with brown mark-
ings you see grazing all over the county. The
Sampsons sell replacement stock to breeders
and bucklings for eating. Sampson's daughter
Jessie, a senior this year at Suwannee High,
has handled the goat operation as an FFA pro-
ject for several years. In 2004, Jessie won the


state FFA Proficiency for Small Animals with
her meat goats. She hopes to win the national
award this year.
"We sell most of our bucklings in bulk,"
Sampson said. "We ship 10 or 15 at a time to
Miami."
The greatest market for goat meat is still
with various ethnic groups Sampson said.
"Hispanics, Arabs, Muslims, Jamaicans and
Haitians are the top goat consumers." She said
Tampa has a large market for goat with the
Arabs and Muslims. Because the numbers of
ethnic people in the US is growing, the goat-
meat market is growing, too.
There is also a local market for goats. The
North Florida Livestock Market in Ellisville
holds a goat market on the fourth Saturday of
every month. The only catch with taking your
goats to market is they have to be tagged for
Scrapies. Scrapie is a disease of sheep and
goats and the USDA requires official identifi-
cation on all sheep and goats before they cross
state lines or are commingled with other ani-
mals at shows or markets.
Sampson said there are several good local
butchers who can take care of processing your
goats. Goats are butchered similarly to deer.
The backstrap, rump roasts and shoulders are
the best portions. Many local goat-meat
fanciers purchase a whole buckling and barbe-
cue it like they would a pig.

ty Extension office at 386-362-2771 or check

The population increases for the state of Flori-
da for the same time period are projected at
36 percent.
Scarborough said for the first time in more
than a century more people are moving to rur-
al areas than away from them for various rea-
sons, including a slower pace of life, more af-
fordable property and abundance of natural
resources.
"It's very important we look at how we can
grow in a manner that's going to be beneficial
to our environment and our economy; the goal
is to balance the en\ ironment and the econo-
my," Scarborough said. urging businesses and
local government to partner n ith the DistrictK
to make the process of growth run smoothly.
In discussing the environmental challenges
accompanying growth, Scarborough outlined
several areas the District targets.
The agriculture community is a key objec-
tive, he said, discussing the economic impact
of agriculture on the District.
Scarborough said the market value of agri-,
culture in Suwannee County for 2002 was
$136 million with the top five commodities
being eggs and poultry, dairy, vegetables. cat-
tle arid tobacco.
The District is working on getting farmers
to implement best management practices to
protect the environment through the Suwan-
nee Ri% er Partnership.
Another area discussed was the Suwannee
River Wilderness Trail, a program designed to
set up cabins and river camps along the
Suwannee River to accommodate tourists and
others, which plays a role in elevating the
economy. The District is restoring area
springs, which Scarborough said draws lots of
tourism to Florida.
The elimination of erosion to springs is
one of the major improvements the District
has been involved with over the last 10


years, he said.
Another area the District is working on is
the water supply issue. The District is looking
for land to relocate Live Oak's wellfields to
protect the source.
"Most of the wellfields are built downtown.
When enough.growth and development takes
place, there will not be any protection for the
source," Scarborough said.
The Stormwater Utility Project, is another
area of interest where the city of Live Oak
and the school system has been partnering
with District in its efforts.
Scarborough showed slides of several areas
\ ith pre\ ious drainage problems the District
has corrected by placing retention ponds and
ground pipes.
"As we look forward to the future we need
to remember building better relations for a
better community is a two-way street," he
said. "Business and .government must work
side by side to protect the environment and
expand the economy."
After the presentation Live Oak Major Son-
ny Nobles spoke in-support of the District's
efforts, saying "One of my goals has been to
spur economic growth.,"
School Superintendent Walter Boatright
said student enrollment for the 2005-06
school year was up 150 students over the
last fiscal year, explaining schools are al-
ready feeling the effects of growth in the
county.
"We have a good environment, and we have
to protect the environment. The District is do-
ing a good job at that," County Commissioner
Randy Hatch said.
The luncheon was part of SRWMD's efforts
to meet with every chamber of commerce in
its 14-county District to discuss development
issues.

It does not fake long for the 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 hearl-felt 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. If has now grown into a full time ministry. Warren admits, "It's unreal that I get
to go places and sing songs that Jie gave me while I was praying about something ihat 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!"

FWC seeks public input on


Camp Blanding proposal


An open house to gather pub-
lic input on a draft plan for re-
opening the south post of Camp
Blanding for hunting is sched-
uled for Tuesday, Feb. 7 from
6:30-8:30 p.m., at the Clay
County Fairgrounds, 2497 SR
16 West, in Green Cove
Springs.
The Camp Blanding Joint
Training Center and the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) have cre-
ated a proposal that could re-es-
tablish access to the south por-
tion of the post for hunting.
Since Sept. 11, 2001, the lands
in the Camp Blanding Wildlife
Management Area lying south
of SR 16 have been closed by
the Department of Military Af-
fairs. These lands, needed for
training exercises and troop
mobilization, are under tight se-
curity that prohibits recreational
access under the current -hunt-
ing format.
While the closure resulted in
the loss of all recreational ac-
cess to'the south post, "hunting
has been allowed in traditional
hunting areas on north post,"
said Col. Ben Nelson, Camp
Blanding Joint Training Center
commander. He .:said Florida
*Department of Military Affairs
and FWC staffs have main-
tained communications in an
effort to reopen the closed area.
"It is the intent of the Florida
National Guard to consider the
interests of our citizens while
also satisfying our state and
federal mission requirements,"
Nelson said. "Our agency 'has
been proactive in formulating
this proposal which reflects the
Florida National Guard's pos-
ture in being supportive of the
interests of our citizens."
According to Roland Garcia,
director of FWC's North Cen-
tral Region, based in Lake City,
"Camp Blanding is still under
heightened force protection and
will re-ain so for the foresee-
able fitire. This mjkes it unac-'
ceptable for the public and their
equipment (including dogs) to
encroach on sensitive areas of
the post, including the artillery
impact area and the closed por-'
tion of the post that lies south of
SR 16 and west of D Avenue.
For this reason, it is necessary
to relocate the deer-dog hunting
area from' its previous location
if we are to proceed with re-
opening the south post."
.The proposal to reopen the
south post for the 2006-07 hunt-
ing season would require
changes to rules and hunting.
formats, including locations of
current still and dog hunt areas
and locations where special
quota hunts would take place.
The. proposal provides for the
same types and amount of hunt-
ing da) s that currently exist for
still hunting, while adding the
deer-dog hunting format back
into the hunting scheme.
On Dec. 23, 2005, FWC staff
mailed a "request for com-
ments" to approximately 1,050
individuals who had applied for
-quota permits for the Camp
Blanding WMA. The purpose.
of the letter was to request pub-


lic comments on
a proposal to
switch the dog
and still hunt ar-
eas. As of Jan.
18, Commission
staff had re-
ceived 119 let-
ters and e-mails;
90 (75 percent)
supported tlme
proposal, 9 (8
percent) sup-
ported the pro-
posal but sug-
gested changes,
and 20 (17 per-
cent) did not
support the pro-
posal. Staff also
received two pe-
titions, one with
27 signatures
and another with
58 signatures,
supporting the
proposal.

"This plan retains all of the
current still-hunting opportuni-
ties, reinstates deer-dog hunt-
ing, is acceptable to FWC from
a biological perspective, is ac-
ceptable to Camp Blanding
from a security perspective and
reopens the south post," Garcia
said. "We are fast-tracking the
process for these changes so we
can provide the new format for
next hunting season. If this pro-
posal is not acceptable to a sig-
nificant portion of* our con-
stituents, FWC will need addi-
tional time to rework the pro-
posal."
That would mean necessary
changes would not take place in
time for reopening the south
post for the 2006-07 hunting
season.
"\Ne hope the hunters who
want to use the area..\ Ill sup-f,
port this proposal. We strongly
believe this plan is in the best
interest of all concerned parties,
especially the hunting commu-
nity. All comments and sugges-
tions received will be used by
staff to develop a final recom-

FWC staff will present an
overview of this proposal to
Commissioners at the Feb. 1-2
Commission meeting in,
Gainesville.
"We plan to present staffs fi-
nal recommendation at the
April 5-6 Commission meeting

adopted, they would become

Suwannee High baseball is packed to
the brim with seniors this year. Suwannee
baseball will be sporting 10 senior players
for the 2006 season, many bringing multi-


Catcher Taylor Abercrombie is a senior
this year. Ross Aretino, who was hitting
one and sometimes two homeruns a game
during the summer season, is a senior.
Rheed Baldwin, returning from the injured
list, is a senior. Zack Davis, who will re-
place 2005 graduate Ryan Stovall at short
stop, is a senior. Chad McGalliard is a se-
nior. Billy. Moran, who picked up where
Rheed Baldwin left off as starting pitcher
last.year, is a senior. Left-handed pitcher
Mark Radford is a senior. Another pitcher
doing well in practice this year Nick Rep-
pert,'is a senior. Josh Wigelsworth is a se-
nior, as is Matt Yanossy.
"Being a senior-laden team is either the
best or the worst thing," said head base-
ball coach Ronnie Gray. "The team's
biggest enemy is themselves. We've got to
fight thinking we've arrived."
All these seniors make Suwannee one of
the top pre-seasoh teams in the area. The
Dogs will be the team to beat in Suwan-
nee's ne\v district.
"I think by the time all the newspapers'
preseason articles are written, we'll have
a bull's-eye on our backs," said Gray.

The old-fashioned chemical peel
may seem downright low-tech

laser resurfacing and
microdermabrasion. However; light
peels are quick and effective, giving
those with sallow skin, tired tans,

old skin cells over several sessions,
a single superficial peel sweeps
away old skin cells and leaves skin
baby-smooth with a glow that lasts
for weeks. A series of five peels,
three to four weeks apart, repeated
twice a year, will equalize slight
skin variations and minimize fine
lines. Light peels may also improve
superficial acne scars. Those with
sensitive skin are advised to have a

and Baker County are both
part of the Dog's new dis-
trict. Filling out the district
are Middleburg and
Ridgeview.
Gray said Santa Fe and
Ridgview are fairly talent-
ed. Gray said Middleburg,
Santa Fe, Ridgeview and
Bradford have similar base-
ball traditions at their
schools. Baker will be the
unknown. Baker just re-
hired John Staples, the
coach who built Baker's
baseball program. He's
been out of coaching for
several years.
"We should be the team
to beat in the district,"
Gray said.
As usual, Gray believes a
good team lives by its


coaching staff.
"We'll be as good as we
pitch," Gray said. "We
need consistency, and we
need to improve. Maturity
should be the key to-that."
Suwannee has six pitch-
ers ready for the upcoming
season, along with Rheed
Baldwin returning from
surgery to his shoulder in
2005. Dog pitching in-
cludes returning starter Bil-
ly Moran, Nick Reppert,
left-hander Mark Radford,
junior Daniel Tillman, ju-
nior Austin Brewster and
senior Ross Aretino.
"Rheed is about 50 per-
cent," Gray said. "We're
hoping he can start."
Suwannee baseball has a
tradition of producing great
pitchers. Gray said he felt
Tyler Chambliss, currently


starting in 2006 for FSU,
will be drafted into the ma-
jors in the first round. Gray
also feels Hunter Aber-
crombie, pitching for a col-
lege out of state, should go
to major league baseball as
well.
There to is a lot to look
forward in the 2006 Bull-
dog baseball season. The
Dogs should provide some
really interesting viewing
for the fans. Laden with se-
niors and in a new district-
the baseball action should
be hot and exciting.
"We're either going to -
play good together or be a
complete flop," Gray said.
"I think we have a good
team, but the decision will
be made at the end of the
year."

CHURCH


FIRST-PERSON: 'Welcome Home,' 4 months later


By Joe McKeever


Sunday morning, two of our
churches in the devastated area
of New Orleans held worship
services for the first time since
Hurricane Katrina.
At 9 a.m., I worshipped with
25 members of Elysian Fields
Avenue Baptist Church, meeting
in the home of Bob and Linda
Jackson, a block behind the
church. The area still has no
electricity and the Jacksons'
home had been gutted down to
the bare floor and wall studs.
'With the temperature outside
in the high 40s, everyone bun-
dled up and warmed one anoth-
er. The Jacksons, now teaching
at New Orleans Baptist Theolog-
ical Seminary, are former mis-
sionaries to Africa. "We're used
to this," Linda laughed. "No
building, no heat. This is how we
did it for years."
Pastor Ken Taylor, also an
NOBTS faculty member, wel-
comed everyone, and k ith tears
in his eyes brought everyone up
to date on the church's situation.
"It appears that our church
buildings will be a total loss," he


told the members. "We had no
flood insurance, and we do not
know what kind of settlement
we'll get.
"We're hoping to be able to
build a smaller church, one more
suitable to our needs," he said.
With the large sanctuary and a
small congregation, they had
gone to worshipping in the fel-
lowship hall in recent months.
Interspersed between the spir-
ited worship choruses, members
gave testimonies. Paula Stringer
told of entering her devastated
home and finding paper scat-
tered everywhere. "One page
that stood out from the rest," she
said, "contained Psalm 77." She
read some of the Psalm, particu-
larly the final verses, as everyone
marveled at their relevance to
our situation. "The clouds
poured out water, the skies gave
forth a sound ... the sound of thy
thunder was in the whirlwind,
the lightning lit up the world,
the earth trembled and shook."
"No one saw your footprints,
but you were there," Paula fin-
ished, "You led your people like
a flock."
Pastor Ken invited me to say a
few words, after which I left to
make the 10 a.m. service at Sub-
urban Baptist Church, some
three or four miles to the east.
Pastor Jeff Box and the Subur-
ban folks were meeting with Vil-
lage de l'Est Baptist Church and
pastor Thomas Walters for the
first post-Katrina service for ei-
ther. There must have ,been a
hundred or more in attendance.
To my surprise, they had elec-
tricity. No gas, so the church's
heaters weren't working, but one


little space heater and the
crowd warmed up the fellow-
ship hall. The projector flashed
an image of a dove in flight on
the wall in front with the words
"Welcome Home." People were
hugging and laughing; it was a
grand occasion.
Jeff introduced guests vol-
unteers here to help restore the
church from Oregon, Wash-
ington and New York. Several
came from Manhattan and a
number from Long Island. Gary
Frost, executive director of the
Metropolitan New York Baptist
Association, greeted everyone
and expressed appreciation for.
those from our area who came to
Manhattan after 9/11. "It's our
turn to minister to you," he said,
as he handed a check to Pastor
Jeff.
Pastor Walters from Village de
I'Est Church added his welcome
to everyone and led us in some,
hymns. His people added a high
level of joy and enthusiasm to
the service. Pastor Jeff preached
on Joshua 1:1-9. "Puring the
evacuation," he said, "I was
hearing all these terrible things
about what was happening in
New Orleans and was wonrrying
about what we would do and
what could I do. God led me to
this Scripture and I saw it wasn't
what we were going to do; it was
what He was about to do."
"Moving into the Future" vas
the title of Jeff's sermon. "You
understand that I haven't
preached to you in a long time,"
he said. "Usually my sermons
have three points, but today it
has five": that we move into the
future with God's promises,

God's power, God's providence,
God's provision and God's pres-
ence.
During the evacuation, Jeff re-
counted, he was invited to
preach in a church in a neighbor-
ing state. Just before the service,
the town's mayor said to him,
"Katrina was the judgment of
God on New Orleans. It was his
judgment on a filthy city, on
filthy people, who' do filthy


things.... Furthermore, God sent
Rita to rinse away what He had
washed with Katrina."
Jeff thought to himself, "The
mayor is a great argument for the
separation of religion and poli-
tics!" and next thought, "Lord,
give me strength."
Jeff's message that day, by the
way, was drawn from Luke 13:1-
5 where. Jesus mentions some
well-known disasters and says,


"Do you think those people were
worse sinners than you for such a
fate to befall them? I tell you, no,
but unless you repent you will all
likewise perish."

McKeever (at www.joemckeev-

Coup de grace: shredding as personal therapy


Derek Maul,
derekanaul@gmail.com,
Sunbelt.Newspapers
I'm proud to announce I now
own my own personal shredder.
My new office is complete.
My'Aurora AS1015CD is a
matt-black bad-boy and it may
well be my new favorite toy. If
you don't have one of these, sat-
isfying gadgets there's a good
chance you won't understand
what I'm so thrilled about. If
you do then you already know
the adrenaline rush of gratuitous
chopping and mincing.
The menacing sound generat-
ed when an annoying piece of
paper goes through the initial set
of steel teeth is pure music. Bet-
ter still an unopened envelope or
an invitation to borrow money.
The sweet resonance of obliter-
ation. I never knew destruction
could be so fulfilling.
I'm seriously thinking about
buying a long extension cord so
I can install my new toy out at
.the street, right by the mailbox.
Better yet I could fix a red flag
on the side and our letter carrier
could -save a step and stuff the
mail right in.
But why limit the fun? The
joy of shredding has potential
applications well beyond, the
World of junk mail and old bills.
How about a shred button for
incoming e-mail? Such a feature
would be a lot more sarisfvinp
than.the simple "de.leIt" e\\all
use now. A nice fierce graphic
along with appropriate sound
effects would be a fitting end for
some of those urban legends
and chain letters people pass


around. "Forward this to at least
15 people?" How about forward
it directly t6 the shredder!
Back when I taught school
around 90 percent of the paper-
work invented by 'the state of
Florida was redundant or irrele-
vant. It should be shoveled di-
rectly into a nice big shredder.'
And that's probably giving too
much credibility to the remain-
ing 10 percent.
I still remember the classic
exchange I had with my princi-
pal the year I turned in my box
o.f yellow chalk and hung out
my shingle as a writer.
"Given an hour of my time
and the opportunity to chose," I
asked, "would you rather I
worked with actual children or.
spent those 60 minutes complet-
ing, another ream of mind-
'numbing paperwork so we
could send it in to the state?"
My question wasn't fair, and
e both kne?\ it. He looked per-
plexed. Mostly because he is a
good man and a bona fide acad-
emic who deeply values: peda-
gogy and cares about children.
He worked, however, for the
lords of minutia and the
denizens of documentation. He
was at their mercy in this regard
and his hands were tied. ,,
"I'd have to say we'd love to
see those forms promptly filled
out," he said hopefully.
To the shredder, I say, all of it.
A heavy-duty model \.ould.
make the perfect gift for your fa-
vorite teacher any time of the
year.
Then there's the income-tax
code. Let's shred every page.


How about the health insurance
industry's "wall of paper," their
de-facto defense against fair and
timely payment? We could have
a party. I'm all about some seri-
ous shredding only we'd need a
machine the size of the Ray-
mond James stadium.
Next I'd enjoy the opportuni-
ty to shred every dollar ever
slipped into the back pockets of
politicians and judges who like
to work a little graft.
Shred those complimentary
country-club memberships de-
signed to skirt sunshine laws
and equal representation behind
the closed doors of privilege.
How about shredded luxury-
box tickets to NFL games,
shredded invitations to exclu-
sive vacations, shredded paper
directorships with hefty salaries
and no responsibility beyond a
leveraged vote?
I'd finish up my shredding
&enz? ith] the sermons oftele-
vangelists who reduce the cur-
rency of faith to cold hard cash.
I'd feed their prosperity prevar-
ications right through the heart
of my' trash-munching ma-
chine, along with their designer
shoes and hand-made Gucci
suits.
Quite simply, shredding is
good therapy. You should try it.
If you still believe I'm crazy
then you can write and com-
plain. i'l! kno0\ just where to
put the lenetr. i ,

Being able and willing to accept
where we are in our lives can
benefit our peace of mind and add
to our personal happiness.
If we can begin each new day with
an attitude that reflects how blessed
we are, and realize that we have so
much to be thankful for, our
emotions will also be more
positive. We all know that life is not

It is probably only human nature for
each of us to want to be productive.
However, in our pursuit of higher levels
of productivity, we often take on more
than we can realistically handle. In
addition to full-time employment, many
of us take on part-time jobs or volunteer
to assist good causes. The problem
arises when we can no longer meet our
expectations, or those which others may

that I can, and my best will have to
suffice," or, we can start to relinquish
some of our obligations, in effect,
unburdening ourselves of the lower
priority items. The first way is
tantamount to changing out attitude to

The second way is tantamount to
changing our life to fit our attitude, or
adjusting to fit our life, in other words,
if our life is making us miserable, then

by all means, we should adjust our life

Two big bucks bagged in local managed timber


The pictures tell the sto-
ry. White-tailed deer, such
as the ones in the pictures;
are good proof that quality
wildlife can be found in
conjunction with tracts of
managed timber.
Both deer were harvested
from privately managed
timber tracts that incorpo-
rate wildlife management
strategies in with their nor-
mal timber management
routines. One white-tail


was harvested in a tract of
mature hardwoods on a
morning hunt with Ronnie
Herrington. The area is co-
operatively managed with
adjacent landowners and
hunters in an effort to pro-
mote quality wildlife on the
property.
The bigger of the two
deer was harvested in a
stand of recently thinned
pines on Ironwood Planta-
tion in an afternoon hunt


with W.F. Messer.
This area is managed as a
private hunting preserve,
with intensive wildlife
management strategies in
place.
"This was my best hunt-
ing season yet, and I be-
lieve it can be attributed to
the different strategies that
both landowners were ap-
plying on their land," said
Suwannee County senior
forester Brian Cobble .

Keaton Beach Report


Trout have been tough
though a few boats got their
limit while several caught no
keepers. The trout seem to be
mostly in deeper water and
probably can't decide whether
to go. in or out due to the
weather swings of late.
Here are a few who did man-
age a limit.
Cor' .Keeter. Juan Deltoro,
and Junior Gonzalez, all of
Tifton, Ga. had their limit of
trout, while fishing in six feet
of water, using Assassin's can-
dy corn and electric chicken
sea shads bounced on the bot-


tom.
Randy Bright's boat, from
Valdosta, Ga., had a limit with
two others on board Saturday.
But just where and how we
don't know? He used shrimp
and a Cajun Thunder. that
we do know?,
Offshore: Dowling
Granberry and two others from
Griffin, Ga had nine grouper
Sunday from 38 feet of water.
Rusty Smith and four others
from Madison had eight
grouper Sunday and fished
"Hard" to get those.
Monday Jay Ricketson, Eric


Woods, and Keith Brooks all of
Perry had 15 grouper with two
over 20 pounds. (I just write
what they tell me folks.) Six of
their fish came on Mann's
Stretch Thirty Plus plugs while
the balance came in on dead
bait. The "Bad Habit" boat
fished 60 feet of water to dand
their 15 grouper.
That's the iep:.t forit!us
week ... I would look for fish-
ing to improve with the
warmer weather, for this week-
end, the last weekend before
trout season closes for a month,
'til March first.


While hunting with his father,
17-year-old Casey Phillips, of
Bay Lake, harvested the sec-
ond-highest-scoring deer on
record ever taken from Florida's
nearly 6 million acres of public
hunting lands.
Phillips, a junior at South
Lake High School in Grove-
land, took the 16-point, non-
typical buck Nov. 21 on
Richloam Wildlife Manage-
ment Area (WMA) during the
general gun season. Tim Farley,
a senior wildlife technician for
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) took the official mea-
surements and gave the deer's
antlers a gross Boone and
Crockett score of 163 6/8 and a
net score of 156 5/8.
James Stovall currently holds
the top spot for his monster 25-
point buck that he took on near-
by Green Swamp West WMA
in 1999, which scored a whop-
ping 206..
According to the Florida
Buck Registry, Phillips' deer is
,the highest-scoring non-typical
deer taken on public or private
land since 2000, when Lee
Cre is took a lo-pointer from
Al1.ichu1 County with a net
score of 179. The registry, es-
tablished in 1982, provides an
opportunity for hunters to regis-
ter antler scores and other infor-
mation about white-tailed deer


taken in Florida.
Casey was prodded by his fa-
ther, Brian Phillips, to go hunt-
ing that afternoon.
"It was a very cold and windy
day, and a storm front had just
moved through the area. Casey
wasn't feeling much up to get-
ting out in it either;" Brian said.
After a little convincing, fa-
ther and son made it out to
Richloam WMA, ,within sight
of their home in Lake County.
Even though the entire manage-
ment area allows deer-dog hunt-
ing, the Phillips practiced still-
hunting and were set up in two
different ladder-stands near
each other along a stretch of a
hardwood hammock.
The trophy buclk came into
Casey's view at around 5:15
p.m., and Casey took the time to
line up his shot and downed the
195-pounder with his 7mm ul-
tra magnum rifle.
"I heard the shot and knew it
was Casey, so I climbed down
from my stand and started mak-
ing my way toward him," Brian
said. "As I was walking, I actu-
ally jumped a 172-pound six-
point and took him with one
shoi I thought I'd done real
good until I saw what my son
had."
"I'm real excited," Casey
said. "I've taken a buck almost
every year out of Richloam
since I was 8 but nothing like


this one. I never put one in the
registry before, and now I find
out I've got the second-best
buck taken off public land."
"I've hunted Richloamn since
1974 and never came close to
taking a deer like that. My wife
and I are real proud of him,"
Brian said.
Thus far, Phillips' buck is cer-
tainly in the running for this
season's highest-scoring deer.
"Richloam is 58,146 acres of
palmetto and pine flatwoods
and is popular with the dog
hunters," FWC regional public
hunting areas biologist Jason
Burton said. "After the first
nine days of the general gun
season, all one needs to hunt
deer and hogs on Richloam is a
hunting license and WMA per-
mit."
The minimum antler score
needed to qualify for Florida's
Buck Registry is 100 Boone
and Crockett points for typical
antlers and 125 for non-typical.
Typical antlers have points
growing off the top side of the
main beam only. Non-typical
antlers are rarer and have points
either growing off the underside
of the inain beam or br.ciiichin:
off other points.
If you think you may have
harvested such a deer, get it reg-
istered by contacting your re-
gional FWC office or visiting
.MyFWC.com/hunting.

Starting and managing a
business takes motivation,
desire and talent. It also,
takes research and planning.
Like a chess game, success
in small business starts with
decisive and correct opening
moves. Although initial mis-
takes are not- fatal, it takes
skill, discipline and hard
work to regain the advan-
tage. To increase your
chance for success, take the
time up front to explore and
evaluate your business and
personal goals. Then use this
information to build a com-
prehensive and well-


thought-out business plan
that will help you reach
these goals. The process of
developing a business plan
will help you think through
some important issues that
you may not have consid-
ered yet. Your plan will be-
come a valuable tool as you
set out to raise money for
your business. It should also
provide milestones to gauge
your success.

Making new fitness resolutions and keeping them


(ARA) Time and time
again, people resolve to get
in shape and to live a
healthier lifestyle. But this
,is the number one
resolution most often
broken and typically
within just a short six
weeks! Why is having a
healthy mind and body
easier to talk about than to
achieve?
Life Time Fitness, a
national operator of sports
and athletic, professional
fitness, family recreation,
and resort/spa centers,
offers these suggestions for
making and keeping a
realistic resolution about
your health.
Appreciate Your
Accomplishments
Although we continue to
make resolutions
concerning good health, we
give up early in the game.
Before you get too down on
yourself for having let go of
previous fitness
resolutions, it is important
to realize that health and
fitness goals are
continuous, involving a
process of assessment,
commitment, feedback, and
follow-through.
Even if you have just
begun considering health
and fitness a priority, you
are much better off than
you think. Shifting your
attitude about your health,
making smarter, more
nutritious choices and
increasing your knowledge
about fitness will build
momentum for you to
accomplish your resolution
this year.
The First Steps are the
Hardest
SIt is not just about
acknowledging what you
need to do to get in shape,
but also about formulating
a plan of action for getting,
there. Visualize how you
want to look and feel,
research health and fitness
!routines, and then set
personal growth and
development goals.
Start by researching and
.exploring fitness facilities
that foster your new
commitment to a healthy
way of life. "The more a
fitness center matches your
goals and expectations, the
more likely it gets used,"
,says Jeff Zwiefel, senior
,vice president, Life. Time
Fitness. "But more than
getting to the gym, a
healthy lifestyle needs to be
a part of every aspect of
your daily life."
Making small
improvements in your diet
can help to make a big
difference. Shop healthy,
take an interest in your
nutrition by becoming
more informed, be aware of
your eating habits, make
good daily choices, and
include your family in your
pursuit of a healthy and
nutritious lifestyle.
Now is the Time to Get
Started
You have come to terms
with past broken
resolutions, and you have
set realistic ones moving
ahead. Get in' the right
frame of mind. A positive
attitude will make all the
difference in your ability to
stick with it. Do not


important health tips to
remember:
Maintain a good diet: In
a guidebook provided to its
members, Life Time Fitness
dieticians recommend that
instead of a big breakfast,
lunch and dinner, people
eat several small balanced
meals and a few small
snacks throughout the day.
Balanced meals include
protein, complex
carbohydrates, fruits and
vegetables. Start taking
supplements and vitamins
on a regular basis and
drink plenty of water.
Rest and reward
yourself: As you work
toward your fitness goals,
remember to reward
yourself for progress along
the way. Treat those
hardworking muscles to a
massage, or pamper your
feet with a pedicure.
Make exercise fun:
Keep track of healthy
habits with a friend! It


might be easier to stick to
your routines and good
habits if you have someone
to answer to. Choose a
friend or family member
who will offer
encouragement while also
setting an example for you
to follow. Use motivators
such as music, new
workout clothes and a
positive attitude.
Max out your
membership: Get your
money's worth! Get to
know all the classes that
your club has to offer. Get
oriented to the club, its
instructors, deals and
offers, and free
assessments. They are there
to help you achieve your
-fitness goals. Maximize
your time and variety of
activities at the club and
your monthly
membership will more
than pay for itself.
What to Do When Your
Resolution Needs Rescuing


Permanent lifestyle
changes take time to
accomplish. When you
are feeling like your
health and fitness are
suffering at the hands of
your other daily tasks
and obligations,
remember to relax.
Research where you
might have gone wrong,


and determine vwhere you
need to make changes. Be
realistic about what you
can accomplish. Review
and adjust your routine
to find out what works
for you and what does
not. Get back into your
routine. It is never too
late to get in shape.
Good luck with your


resolutions this year, and
remember that you are in
.charge of making them
happen!

abandon your goal just
because you missed one
day of workout or diet.
