Imagine for a moment, a nearby event
that combines the re-enactment of Florida's
most significant Civil War battle,, living his-
tory'programs to educate and entertain,
hefty dose of area talent on stage, foods to
whet the appetite of the most' finicky eater,
high quality arts and crafts of every genre,
and, yes, even lots of things for the kids to
do.
Imagine no more. All this and more,
much more, will be available during the
weekend of Feb. 17-19 as the nation's sec-
ond largest annual Civil War re-enactment
is hosted at the 30th Annual Olustee Battle
Re-enactment and 28th Annual Olustee Bat-
tle Festival in Lake City.
For those new to the area, the event com-
memorates the 142nd anniversary of the
Battle of Olustee which happened on Feb.
20, 1864 as a force of approximately 5,000
Confederate troops confronted 5,500 Union
Army forces, which included three regi-
nients of black soldiers, including the 54th
Massachusetts, the regiment whose earlier
exploits at South Carolina's Fort Wagner
are detailed in the movie Glory.
The Confederate victory at Olustee was
the primary reason that Tallahassee re-
mained as the only southern capitol that
didn't fall to Union forces during the Civil
War.
During the week of Olustee, re-enactors
portraying President Abraham Lincoln and
Confederate General Robert E. Lee are
providing living history programs at area


schools. The Lake City/Columbia County
Historical Museum will present a program
entitled 'Angels of Mercy' during the festi-
val weekend as the heroics of the group are

BRRRRRRRR! IT'S BEEN REALLY
COLD! Sunny Florida has lived up to
its name only part of the time lately
in Suwannee County where it was
cold and rainy on Saturday, sunny
on Sunday and then the tempera-
tures dipped, going all the way
down to 24 degrees Feb. 14. Ice
could be seen on car windows, back
porches (photo above) and outside
waterers until the sun warmed
things up a bit. Will it continue?
Nope! The forecast is for warmer
days into the weekend. Photo: Staff

Bicycle ride nets man
arrest for drug possession
A Live Oak man was arrested Feb. 10 at about 11 p.m. after
Live Oak Police Sgt. Keith Davis observed him riding a bicycle
into an area that is known for illegal drug activity, according to
the Live Oak Police Department (LOPD). Paul Joseph Gibson,
45, was further observed making contact with a person in the
area and an apparent exchange took place, according to LOPD
Chief Nolan McLeod. Sgt. Davis made contact with Gibson,
who had in his possession crack cocaine, McLeod said. Gibson,
who resides on 109th Lane, was taken to the Suwannee County
Jail.
Man charged with possession.

LOPD Det. Aubrey Land conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle
Feb. 10 at about 10:15 p.m. that was being driven by Steven
Gain, 46, according to the LOPD. As a result of this contact it
was discovered that Gain had in his possession cocaine and
cannabis, LOPD Chief Nolan McLeod said. He was subsequent-
ly arrested. Gain, who resides at 4429 Tower Road, was trans-

OPINION

AIDS virus outruns


efforts to combat it
CNHI News Service -
The Valdosta (Ga.).Daily Times


To live in denial about one's medical con-
dition is bad enough. What compounds the
tragedy is that the majority of new infections
are transmitted by people with HIV who
don't know they are affected.
The United States is fortunate in some re-
spects when it comes to the virus that causes
AIDS. In the early 1990s, Secretary of Health
and Human Services Donna Shalala predicted
the HIV virus would so decimate the popula-_
tion that the United States would be unirecog-
nizable by the start of the new millennium.
That dire prediction has rot come to pass -
but the United States is still not where it should
be in combating the AIDS epidemic. Govern-
ment health officials set the goal of "breaking
the back" of the epidemic by 2005. Instead,
more than a million Americans are believed to
be living with HIV.
Officials with the Centers for Disease' Control
and Prevention cited a denial factor among
Americans. More than a quarter of the people
living, with HIV have not been diagnosed --
and don't even want to know whether they
have the disease. About a third of the people
who tested positive at CDC-sponsored sites
throughout the country did not return to get
their results.
To live in denial about one's medical condi-
tion is bad enough. What compounds the
tragedy is that the majority of new infections
are transmitted by people with HIV,who.don't,
know they are affected.
We live in an age where information about
AIDS and access to disease-preventing re-
sources are more readily available than ever.
There is no excuse for the statistics we continue
to see on the HIV front. Government can -
and should continue efforts to educate the
public about the dangers of unprotected sex.
Ultimately, combating the AIDS epidemic
comes down to the choices each individual
makes with their health.

awaiting further action.
The bills would require insurance compa-
nies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital
stay for patients (male or female) undergo-
ing a mastectomy. Supporters of the bill say
-it's about eliminating the "drive -through
mastectomy" where women are forced to go
home hours after surgery against the wishes
of their doctor, still groggy from anesthesia
and sometimes with drainage tubes still at-
tached. All because insurance won't pay for
patients to stay longer for this surgery.
US senators Olympia J. Snowe (RE-ME)
and Mary L. Landrieu (D-LA) and U.S. Rep-
resentatives Sue Kelly (R-NY) and Rosa De-


Lauro (D-CT) introduced The Breast Cancer
Patient Protection Act-of 2005.
For those facing breast cancer, these bills
would provide:
*A second opinion this assures every pa-
tient would receive a second opinion if diag-
nosed with cancer
*That health providers cannot limit hospi-
tal stays for a mastectomy or breast-conserv-
ing surgery to less than 48 hours.
*Provides that a patient having lymph
node dissection can stay hospitalized at least
24 hours
Requires coverage for radiation therapy
for patients undergoing lumpectomy. This
allows patients to make their decision on
what type of surgery they will have based on
need, rather than cost.
The lack of proper coverage for women in
this situation has led to much controversy
and pain and suffering by women. It's time
for discrimination of women in these situa-
tions to stop. Lifetime Television has put this
bill on its web page with a petition drive to.
show support.

national spotlight with a
stellar career. Altogether,
they have 17 #1 singles,
five of the Top 100 Christ-
ian radio singles of the
past decade and more than
two million albums sold.
But more importantly, they
are getting the Christian
message out. Hundreds of
thousands have been led to;
make decisions for Christ
at their concerts and New-
Song is one of the largest
spokespersons for World
Vision, acquiring thou-
sands of scholarships for
needy children around the
globe.
This year,, the Winter
Jam Tour has some. famil-
iar names, as well as some
newcomers to the-toul. to-
'b\MNac i. back with his
band, Diverse City, and the
Newsboys have been on
the' tour previously as well.
The. red-hot band ZOEgirl
joins the tour for the first


time, as well as Hawk Nel-
son and Krystal Meyers._
Before the concert, there
will be an amazing demon-
stration by the Sphere of
Fear motorcycle stunt
team.
This all-star concert is
included with park admis-
sion and guests are encour-
aged to bring lawn chairs
and blankets. Covered re-
served seating in front of
the stage is also available

The concert joins more
than 100 rides and attrac-
tions, including nine roller
coasters. Come face-to-
face with more than 500
exotic animals set in natur-
al habitats throughout the
park or take in one of the
dazzling daily shows. Wild

All of us know the Bible
story ... Eve ate the forbid-
den fruit from the tree of the
knowledge of good and evil,
and finding it pleasant to her
taste buds she offered Adam
a bite ... and thus, throughout
history; the apple, though not
actually mentioned by name,
has come to represent the
wormy worst and the shin-
ning best of mankind. Chil-
dren are the apple of their
parent's eye. Snow White
had her moment with the ap-
ple, and it has been said an
apple a day will keep the
doctor away (don't we wish).
Even Hollywood has jumped
on the apple wagon with a
movie star naming her child
after the fruit ... which gives
a whole new meaning to
mom's apple pie. And last,.
but certainly not least, apples
have, become synonymous
with education ... the fruit of
choice for generations of
school children to polish and
present to their favorite
teacher ...

Wellborn, it does have a
state-of-the-art elementary
school, which can now lay
claim to Columbia County's
Teacher of Year, Rebecca
Brown. I spoke with her just
a few days before the
awards ceremony, and she
told me that she didn't ex-
pect to win, but felt truly
honored just to be corisid-
ered, along with her fellow
educators, for such a won-
derful and prestigious
award. Well, Miss Becky, I
can't think of a more de-
serving recipient than you.
You have dedicated 20
years of your life to educa-
tion, first as a fourth grade
teacher, and now kinder-
garten, and, if'that's not
enough, you are also an af-
ter school tutor for first-
third grade students. Wow!
For setting such a positive
example, Rebecca Brown
receives an A-plus from the
outback folks in her home-
town of Wellborn.
Sweetness' comes in the
name of Priscilla Redman
Williamson, who celebrated
her birthday on the biggest
sweetheart day of the year,

woman she moved to Clear-

I ASK DR. MANTOOTH

:W a I. S d I D hv o d e t


Q: What should I have on hand lor dental first ai'd?
A: Every home should have some basic items on
hand for dental first aid. Here are some of them:
*Plain table salt or baking soda to dissolve in
warm water as a soothing mouthwash.
*Ice, for use in cases that involve pain or
swelling. Put the ice in a plastic bag and wrap inn
a moist cloth to create an effective cold pack.
*A mild pain reliever, like aspirin or an
acetaminophen, like Tylenol.
*Some sterile gauze pads to control bleeding
and for swaddling and knocked-out tooth.
*Dental wax, which your dentist will give you. It
is most often used by orthodontists to cover a
protruding part of newly installed braces, but you
can also use it to prevent irritation from a
damaged bridge.
*Clean cloths to use as a compress for a cut to
the face or mouth. (Black or red cloth will
minimize the amount of visible blood)
*Toothache drops made from the oil of cloves.
Except for the ice, of course, you might keep the
above items in a kit suitable for travel.
Ask your dentist about other first aid items you
should have on hand.

returning, in 1987, to her
childhood home community
of Wellborn. During the
1950s,while residing in
Clearwater, Pricilla was an
active member of the Amer-
ican Red Cross Grey
Ladies, and for many years
served on the board of di-
rectors of. The Community
Pride Nursery School.
Priscilla speaks with great
fondness of her former
church family at Clearwa-
ter's Mount Carmel Baptist,
where she was a member for
37 years. In years past
Priscilla was an active
member _of the Wellborn
Community Association
(WCA) and is past recipient
of the WCA's Wellborn Cit-
izen of the Year Award. She
still attends community
functions when time allows,
and, like the rest of us in the
outback, especially likes to
attend the monthly blueber-
ry pancake breakfast, where
she enjoys visiting with all
her friends. Happy birthday
to this dear, sweetheart of a
lady.
It is time ... remember
our troops and their families
in prayer. Pray for America
and her leaders ... be kind
to the wayfaring stranger,
helpful to a neighbor in
need, and tell those you
love you love them while
you have the chance ...for
who knows of tomorrow.

SRWMD welcomes new employee


Steve Minnis has recently
joined the resource management
home team at Suwannee River
Water Management District as
the senior resource development
coordinator. He is responsible
for coordination and implemen-
tation of alternative water supply
projects.
Minnis graduated from the
University ofAkron with a bach-
elor's degree in political sci-
ence/criminal justice and a mas-
ter's degree in urban
studies/public administration.
After graduation, he moved to
Florida and started his profes-
sional career working for an en-
gineering consulting firm as a
planner.
The next professional career
step for Minnis was to take a po-
sition with Southwest Florida
Water Management District
(SWFWMD) where he was em-
ployed for approximately 20


years. Initially, he worked for the
SW District as a planner review-
ing developments of regional
impacts and other land use is-
sues. Minnis then took the op-
portunity to open the SW Dis-
trict's southern satellite office,
which is known today as the SW
District's Sarasota service office.
Minnis was responsible for di-
recting the SW District's ap-
proach in addressing natural re-
source issues in the Myakka Riv-
er basin. This was the first time
the SW District partnered with
the agricultural community. One
aspect to the approach included
the establishment of two surface
water exchange projects with the
agricultural community. This ap-
proach has been embraced by all
affected parties. It was instru-
mental in establishing a coopera-
tive relationship wit the agricul-'
tural community, environmental
community, governmental enti-


ties and private landowners to
work in a collaborative manner
to resolve an environmental is-
sue.
Also, in conjunction with
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services,
Minnis established and directed
the SW District's Facilitating
Agricultural Resource Manage-
ment System, a/k/a FARMS.
The FARMS program is a pub-
lic/private* partnership program
which is water quantity and qual-
ity based. The FARMS program
was a critical component of the
SW District's Shell, Prairie and
Joshua Creek Reasonable Assur-
ance Plan as well as a major
component in offsetting ground
water withdrawals in the South-
ern Water Use Caution Area.
Minnis and his wife are in the
process of moving to High
Springs where they will reside
while they build a home in Bell.


SRWMD r
Brian Kauffman received
a B.S. degree in agricultur-
al engineering from Uni-
versity of Florida in May,
1999. Upon graduation, he
worked as a project engi-
neer with Yoder Brothers,
Inc., a privately owned
worldwide farming corpo-
ration.
Since 1996, Kauffman
has worked for Suwannee
River Water Management
District as a water re-
sources engineer. He start-
ed in environmental re-


'ecognizes
source permitting and
moved into project man-
agement. As a project man-
ager, Kauffman worked
with local governments on
cooperative engineering
projects to enhance the
community's water, waste-
water and stormwater in-
frastructure. Due to the
success of several innova-
tive projects, the govern-
ing board in .1998 devel-
oped the Quality Commu-
nities Program and dedi-
cated half a million dollars


Kauffman
annually for these activi-
ties. As a program leader,
Kauffman helps to orga-
nize and coordinate Dis-
trict staff with local gov-
ernments, consulting engi-
neers and regulatory agen-
cies.
In 2002, Kauffman
moved into the land acqui-
sition and management de-
partment where, his main
responsibility is to oversee
the restoration and man-
agement of Mallory
Swamp.

"It's: just simply not true.
They are exempt," Wooley
added.
Wooley said state law re-
quires that if the handyman is
to be paid $1,000 or more per
job, that he/she has a contrac-
tor's license. "That we can't
change," Wooley stated. Woo-
ley said if the owner of a busi-
ness wants to build a place to
do business, they must hire a
contractor, but that same own-
er can build his/her own home
no matter what the cost. The


owner can build or repair oth-
er buildings, including com-.
mercial buildings, on their
property when that property is
not put up for sale within one
year of the work, the ordi-
nance says.
The ordinance deals with
fines and penalties, sets up a
construction board and deals
with all issues relating to con-
struction in Suwannee Coun-
.ty.
A controversy arose over
the new ordinance after the
county was required to make
changes in County Ordinance


97-18 to eliminate criminal,
charges for violation. The
Third Circuit 'State Attorney's
Office said it would no longer
prosecute those cases without
charging the county. Thus, the
county had to change- the
criminal charges to civil fines
and penalties by changing the
ordinance, Wooley said. Vio-
lators will receive a citation
and appear before a judge,
much like a traffic violation.
When the new ordinance
came out before the county
was to pass it at the night
meeting in January, a number


of people were present to
protest, saying the new ordi-
nance prohibited them from
working as hands men. The"
Commission tabled the deci-
sion until Feb. 21 at 7 p.m. to
study it further, saying they
didn't want to pass an ordi-
nance that would prohibit
handymen from being em-
ployed nor a potential home-
owner from building his/her
own home.

Suwannee High's varsity soft-

rest.
Suwannee scored one run in

Democrat Reporter
It was Senior Night for Bulldog bas-
ketball and Suwannee was up for the
game against Jefferson County. The JV
Dogs and the Bulldogs both ran their
games into overtime. The Big Dogs
won their game 68-60 while the JV
Dogs lost 67-69.
"Jefferson was coming off a loss to
Madison, which broke a 10-game Jef-
ferson County winning. streak," said
Coach Chris Martello. "We knew they
had been improving throughout the sea-
son and would be looking for the up-
set."
Three Bulldogs saw little playing
time in the game due to rules infrac-
tions.
"I'm serious about team rules and
policies. Mario, Jevon and Dustin
chose to test the rules today and
tonight," Martello said. The specific
rule was, players are to dress up on
game days and facial hair must be kept
to a minimum. "All Mario Hawthorne
and Jevon Smith had to do was to clip
their facial hair and go back in. It took
them until the fourth quarter to make
that happen," Martello said. "Dustin
Doe came to the game in jeans and ten-
nis shoes, with no tie. He didn't agree
with the penalty for his rules infraction
- removal of playing time and chose
to leave the team in the third quarter. I
wish the best for Dustin. He has great
athletic prowess and can achieve great
things at Florida and possibly beyond."

Josh Hingson hits Hole-in-One


It was a nice afternoon for
golf. Josh Hingson, a former
Bulldog golf team member,
was playing a round by him-
self. "I was just out there re-
laxing," Hingson said. "I
didn't have anything else to
do."
Hingson's day with noth-
ing to do, turned out to be
one of the best rounds of golf
in his life. He hit a hole-in-
one on hole number-five at
the Suwannee Country Club.
"I was speechless," Hing-
son said. ,,J always thought
I'd be different, but I was-
n't." He may have been
speechless, but Hingson had
the presence of mind to grab
a witness, in this case Trey

ing behind him. Hingson

along with Australia, Mexico,
Canada and other countries. The
PBR has plans to hold 12 events
in Mexico and Canada, 25 in
Australia and 40 in Brazil this
year. Pro bullriding is a big
money venture with many fans
around the world especially in
China and the Middle East.
"That's why we can say if we
win the World Championship
that we are the World Champi-
on," Porter said. "It's an interna-
tional deal."
Porter is originally from Ke-
nansville in Central Florida.
He's always wanted to be a bull-
rider. He remembers something
he wrote in kindergarten. "I
want to be a bullrider when I
grow up," he wrote. This Flori-
da cowboy was raised on a
ranch and climbed on a calf
when he was just five. He was
riding steers at age 8 and bulls at
11. Porter competed in high


school rodeo bullriding and in
1996 rode his first PBR bull. His
greatest bullriding accomplish-
ment he said was winning the
2000 PBR World Finals. Porter
was the only cowboy that year
to cover all five of his bulls dur-
ing the event.
Porter won't say what the
name on his birth certificate is.
He just said his name is "Tater."
He said he doesn't work out to
keep in shape. He said he does-
n't practice. "Bullriding is more
finesse than strength," he said.
Porter plans to keep on riding
as long as his health holds out.
He's coming off six weeks of re-
hab for a broken leg in the
World Finals. "I got on three
bulls with the broke leg," Porter
said. "But I didn't do that good."
He said he kept riding with a
cast on.
"I'm gonna do this as long as
I can keep it together," Porter
said. "I don't show up unless I
expect to do."

start. The Dogs ended the
first period in the lead 13-
10. But the second period
was harsh on the Dogs. Jef-
ferson moved into an eight-
point lead with 3:27 left in
the half and Suwannee was
down 20-33 at the half-time
recess. But the Bulldogs
came roaring back in the
third period, pulling to
within one point 41-42 and
played point for point in the
fourth to end the game tied.
at 58. For the second time in
one night, the fans watched
a game go into overtime.
In the four-minute over-

time period Jefferson had to
play without their two best
players, both having fouled
out in the fourth. Keith
Brown scored first for
Suwannee. Mario
Hawthorne put two points
on the board and the Dogs
were in the lead 62-58.
Suwannee nailed the coffin
shut. with a Nate Herring
lay-up and the Dogs won the
game 68-60.
For the JV Dogs Knowe
Matthews and Sharrod Lee
led the scoring with 14
points. T. Brown scored 10
points along with Darnell
Presley. Butler and Fountain
both scored four points.
Chambers scored three and
Bryant and White both
scored two points for
Suwannee.

picked up the slack, Martel-
lo said, scoring a season and
career high, 32 points.
"Nate really picked up the
team tonight on both ends of
the floor," Martello said.
"We were down by three af-
ter the first quarter and
dovwn by 13 at the half.
Nate realized the urgency of
the situation and responded
with a 16-point third quar-
ter."
Martello added, "Hope-
fully we can learn from this
ad\erse situeiation. W1len \ e
play with that kind of sense'
of urgency and effort, we're
very hard to beat. Champi-
onship teams not only have
that kind of intensity in
games, but in practice as
well. Most teams have to
give that kind of effort from
tip-off to buzzer to be suc-
cessful. Very few teams can
rely on talent alone. "
Ryan Hight and Jevon
Smith both had 10 each.
Mario Hawthorne ended
with nine points, six of
those in overtime. Keith
Brown ended the game with
four, Michael Richard had
two and Chris Bevel one.
"We're very inconsistent
at the free throw line,"
Martello said. "Some nights
we're pretty good, others
horrible. Tonight, horrible -
11-29. We made 11 and
missed 18, 38%. Good
shooting teams are consis-
tently above 65% as a
team."

FWC moves to



protect alligator gar


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has strengthened protec-
tion for alligator gar.
The action by FWC Commis-
sioners, during Wednesday's
meeting at Gainesville, means
that effective July 1, no one will
be allowed to take or possess al-
/ligator gar in Florida waters
without a special permit. Alliga-
tor gar, which get their name
from having the body of a typi-
cal gar and a head that some-
what resembles that of an alliga-
tor, occur in rivers and brackish
waters -across the southeastern
United States from Florida to
Texas and into Mexico. Howev-
er, in Florida they do not exist
farther east than the
Choctawhatchee River, which
empties into the Gulf of Mexico

at Destin.
Alligator gar can exceed 300
pounds and grow to more than
six feet long, according to Fred
Cross, an FWC fisheries biolo-


Cross said alligator gar and.
other gar species are important
to their ecosystem and play a
role in the healthy ecological'
balance of fish communities.
"Their role in a healthy river"
system is just as important as
any other native species," he:
said.
Cross said alligator gar need
protection in Florida, because
sampling methods over the past
couple of years "suggest the
population has declined substanz
tially."
He said trends in other states
reflect similar conditions. Ir'
some areas of its historic rang'
the fish is now gone. iRecen(t
studies in Alabama, Mississippit
and Louisiana suggest alligator.
gar are very susceptible to over-
fishing.
Cross said the action by the"
Commission could result in spe-
cific research in the future di-.;
rected at alligator gar.


A crossbow hunting sea-
son for private lands is in
the works for 2006-07. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Coniet a1tioni Commission
(FWC) adopted new rules
to establish the new hunting,
season during its meeting
Wednesday in Galne'vile."
The new season will pro-
vide additional hunting op-
poIIunlties- for crossbow
hunters. It will also length-
en the overall hunting sea-
son and extend the nurfiber
of days conventional'
bowhunters can use bows to
take game, since bows will
be legal during crossbow

The added season is lim-
ited to private lands and re-
stricts harvest to bucks
only. These changes will
not affect the wildlife man-
agement area system.
Rule changes also pro-
vide that bows and cross-
bows will be legal during
muzzleloading gun season
and during the Northwest
Hunting Zone's special
archery/muzzleloading sea-
son, beginning next year.
"We wanted to create
more opportunities for
hunters who use crossbows
but. strived to balance that
with the interests of avid
bowhunters," said Nick Wi-
ley, 'director of FWC's Di-.
Vision of Hunting and
Game Management. "The
change gives private
landowners more options,
for managing game on their
property and provides addi-
tional early-season hunting


opportunities. "
Beginning' in October,
there will be a five-day.
crossbow season between,
the ex\i.iing archery season;
and muzzleloading gun sea-
son in the Central and
South hunting zones. In the
Northwest Zone, the cross-
bow season will be seven.
days long and will open the
Monday following Thanks-
giving.
During the new crossbow"
season, legal game will in-
clude deer, hog, bearded
turkey,, gray squirrel, quail;,
rabbit, raccoon, opossum
c~-;, ..te, nutria, skunk and
hea\ er. Howeverz-turkeys-
will not be legal game i,'2
Holmes County during anyik
fall or winter hunting sea-_
son.
As during the muzzle-"
loading gun season, only'.
bucks with at least one.
antler five inches or more-
in length may be taken dur-.
ing the crossbow season.,
The daily bag' limit for:
,antlered deer is two during-
the crossbow and muzzle-
loading gun seasons.
During both periods,:
antlerless deer may be tak-
en only by hunters who,
hold antlerless deer per-'
mits. Regardless of the"
season or number of per-,
mits, the bag limit will be'
two deer per day.
For. more information,
about the new crossbow
season, interested hunters:
can call Tony Young at'
(850) 488-7867 or visit

Gaylard Farm joins

membership of

American Angus

Association


Gaylard Farm of O'Brien
is a new member of the
American Angus Associa-
tion, reports John Crouch,
executive vice president of
the national breed registry
organization in Saint Joseph,
Mo.

ciation, with more than
34,000 active adult and ju-
nior members, is the largest

tion itz the world. Its com-
puterized records include
detailed information on
more than 14 million regis-


tered Angus.
The Association records

and mate the best animals in
their herds to produce high
quality, efficient breeding
cattle which are then record-

Association. Most of these
registered Angus are used by
the U.S. farmers and ranch-

beef for U.S. consumption.


BUSINESS

Raymond James Financial, Inc. reports

record results in first quarter


Raymond James Financial,
Inc. recently reported a 15 per-
cent increase in unaudited net
income to a record
$45,109,000, or $0.60 per dilut-
ed share, for the first quarter
ended Dec. 31, 2005, on net
revenues of $526,536,000. In
comparison, the firm reported
net income of $39,243,000, or
$0.52 per diluted share, for fis-
cal 2005's first quarter.
"In spite of the fact that the
first fiscal quarter of 2006 was
comprised of 13 weeks con-
trasted to 14 last year, revenues
increased by 10 percent," stated
Chairman and CEO Thomas A.
James.
"A 62 percent increase in
gross interest income accounted
for the majority of the increase,


supplemented by increases in
investment advisory and invest-
ment banking fees. Commis-
sions and fees were up 3 per-
cent, even though there were
fewer production days.
"Aided by a $10 million in-
crease in net interest, quarterly
net income exceeded $45 mil-
lion, resulting in the second
consecutive record quarter,"
James continued: "Diluted earn-
ings per share reached $0.60.
While corporate earnings
growth shows signs of slowing
down and oil prices continue at
record levels, the economic out-
look is still generally positive,
suggesting a benign environ-
ment for the financial services
industry, as it appears that tight-
ening by the Fed is nearing an


end."
Raymond James Financial
(NYSE-RJF) is a Florida-based
diversified holding company
providing financial services to
individuals, corporations and
municipalities through its sub-
sidiary companies. Its three
wholly owned broker/dealers,
Raymond James & Associates,
Raymond James Financial Ser-
vices and Raymond James Ltd.,
have more than 4,800 financial
advisors serving approximately
1.2 million accounts in 2,200 lo-
cations throughout the United
States, Canada and overseas. In
addition, total client assets are
currently over $156 billion, of
which approximately $28 bil-
lion are managed by the firm's
asset management subsidiaries.


To the extent that Raymond
James makes or publishes for-
ward-looking statements-re-
garding economic conditions,
management expectations,
strategic objectives, business
prospects, anticipated expense
savings, financial results, antic-
ipated results of litigation and
regulatory proceedings, and
other similar matters-a variety
of factors, many of which are
beyond Raymond James' con-
trol, could cause actual results
and experiences to differ mate-
rially from the expectations and
objectives expressed in these
statements. These factors are
described in Raymond James'
2005 annual report on Form 10-
K, which is available on ray-
mondjames.com and sec.gov.

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

Seeing Is Enjoying:

Tips for Healthy Eyes
A telltale sign that you're not as young as you used to be is when your senses start to diminish. Whether you're
not hearing things as well as you once could or you've noticed your vision is no longer as sharp as it once was,
dealing with diminishing senses can be a difficult adjustment to make. While such changes are inevitable, there
are steps you can take to lessen the blow, especially if you've yet to reach an age where your senses have
begun to lose a step.
Since March is Save Your Vision Month, here are a few steps, Gourtesy of Prevent Blindness America, the
country's leading eye health and safety organization, that people of all ages can take to minimize how much their
vision diminishes.
Schedule regular visits to the eye doctor. Eye checkups are just as .important as overall health checkups.
While not everyone needs to go every year, those 55 and older should go at least once every other year, or once
a year, if possible. It's also important not to wait until something bothers you to see your eye doctor. Even if you
feel as though your vision is fine, if you haven't visited an eye doctor in a while, it's still a good idea to get your
eyes checked. Many eye afflictions offer no noticeable symptoms in their early stages, requiring a trained eyecare
professional to recognize an illness.
Also, since vision changes frequently, getting your eyes examined on a regular basis is important to make sure
you're still wearing the most appropriate prescription.
Make some easy lifestyle changes. If you've never been one to wear sunglasses, you might want to start.
According to the Radiation Safety Committee at Australia's Charles Sturt University, sunglasses protect people
from solar ultraviolet radiation, something that can be very damaging. Ultraviolet-B radiation (UVB) can be
especially damaging and has even been implicated in inducing skin cancer in addition to being harmful to a
person's vision. While sunglasses should be worn year-round, when it's light out, they should be particularly worn
during summertime, when UVB radiation is three times as high as it is during winter.
Another easy lifestyle change is to improve lighting around your house. If you've always been fond of dimly lit
rooms, it's a good idea to add more lighting now, as better and more well-lit rooms are an aid to diminished
vision.
Take care of yourself. Proper healthcare is especially vital to maintaining strong vision. One of the most
damaging side effects of diabetes is visual impairment. Avoiding diabetes can be done with proper diet and
ample exercise. Monitoring your blood pressure regularly as well as your cholesterol level is good for overall
health and can help you avoid diseases such as diabetes that may ultimately affect your vision in a negative way.
Taking care of yourself is also essential even for those people who have already begun to experience
diminishing vision. Any -medications you might be prescribed should not be taken lightly, and dosage.
recommendations should be strictly followed. If you wear glasses, make sure you always have them with you or
wear them wherever you go if need be. Also, take note of any vision aids that might be helpful. These can include
a magnifying glass if you're reading something with smaller print, such as a newspaper or magazine, or high-
intensity reading lamps that will help you see the words on the page more clearly. Also, many bookstores now
carry large-print editions of popular books that can make reading a lot less stressful on your eyes. If-a bookstore
doesn't carry such books, a visil to the store's Web site nf it's a large chain) or even a phone call to the book's
publishing rchouse will let you know it the book comes in large prinnl. "

A sweet and healthy dessert to start the new year right


(ARA) Now that the
holiday season is over,
you may be feeling a bit
guilty about all the
cookies and cake you ate.
According to the USDA
Human Nutrition
Research Center on
Aging at Tufts
University, 51 percent of
annual weight gain
happens during the six-
week holiday season.
So what do you do
now? Stick with your
New Year's resolution to
start eating better; but
that doesn't mean you
have to starve off the
sweets. Instead of
preparing desserts with
calorie-laden ingredients,
use nutritionally
beneficial foods such as
the sweet potato.
The sweet potato
contains vitamins A, C
and B6; four times the
recommended amount of
beta-carotene; iron,
potassium and fiber.
Sweet potatoes are also
low in fat and sodium. In
fact, the Center for
Science in the Public
Interest named sweet
potatoes the most
nutritious vegetable.
An excellent dessert
recipe that is low in fat is
-Sweet Potato Flan. This
flavorful, nutritional dish
is the perfect addition to
any meal, particularly
one at a social gathering.
Sweet Potato Flan is
light, decadent and easy
top prepare. For the
sweetest of sweet
potatoes, try using fresh
or canned Louisiana
sweet potatoes to prepare
this recipe.
*Sweet Potato Flan
(makes 8 to 10
servings)
Ingredients:
1/2 cup sugar
.1 (15-ounce) can sweet
potatoes, (yams) drained
and mashed or 1 cup
mashed fresh sweet
potatoes
1/4 teaspoon ground
cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 (12-ounce) can fat free
evaporated milk
1 (14-ounce) can fat free
sweetened condensed
milk


3 eggs
2 egg whites
1 tablespoon


vanilla


extract
berries for garnish

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325
degrees. Place sugar in a
heavy saucepan. Cook
over medium heat until
sugar dissolves, stirring
frequently, for about 5
minutes.
Immediately pour into
a 9-inch round cake pan
coated with nonstick
cooking spray, tipping
pan quickly until
caramelized sugar coats
bottom of pan. In food
processor or mixer, mix
together sweet potatoes,
cinnamon, nutmeg,
evaporated milk,
sweetened condensed
milk, eggs, egg whites
and vanilla until blended.
Pour into prepared pan.
Place in baking dish
large enough to hold the


9-inch round pan and
add hot water to dish
until one inch deep.
Carefully place in oven
and bake for one hour to
one hour and 15 minutes
or until knife inserted in
center comes out clean.
Remove' pan from
water, cool .pan
completely on a wire
rack. Cover and


refrigerate for at least
three hours. Loosen edge
of flan with a knife and
invert flan on larger
serving plate. Pour the
remaining caramelized
syrup over the flan.
Garnish with berries.

potatoes, visit

Acquiring reading strategies:


What parents


can do to boost student success


(ARA) With students'
achievements now firmly
tied to high-stakes testing, it
is more important than ever
for parents to help motivate
their children to read, not
just during the summer
break but all year long.
Reading strategies allow
kids to understand their
textbooks, complete
homework and even follow
test directions properly. By
understanding the
individual reading strategies
a child needs to learn, and
becoming an active
participant in acquiring
these skills, parents can
help pave the way for.
ongoing academic success.
Research shows "the
importance of the role
parents play in providing
children with early language
and literacy experiences
that foster reading
development ."(Center for
the Improvement of Early
Reading Achievement
(CIERA) (2001). Put
Reading First: The Research,
Building Blocks for.
Teaching Children to Read.
Jessup, MD: National
Institute for Literacy at ED
Pubs).
National standards are a
good place to start in
understanding the skills
each child needs to acquire
at a given age. The
International Reading
Association (IRA) Web site
lists the standards for
English language arts
developed by both the IRA
and the National Council of
Teachers of English. Visit
the Web site at
wwwreadiggorg,',fy
the keywords "language arts
standards" into the search
box. Parents can also use'
free resources, such as those
found on Curriculum
Associates' Web site
(www.curriculumassociates.
corn) to view detailed
reading skills as described
in Curriculum Associates'
program STARS (Strategies
to Achieve Reading
Success) and to download
sample activities.'
Also, request that your
school use a reading


assessment in the beginning
of the year and
communicate the
assessment results to you.
Traditionally at-risk
students have been tested in
reading by a diagnostician.
Today a three-step approach
within the classroom is
possible -- and
recommended --
empowering the teacher to
differentiate instruction for
ALL students:
1. Assess to identify the
strategies students have
mastered, and those needing
to be reinforced.
2. Tailor instruction to
teach or strengthen
strategies based on
students' individual needs.
3. Re-assess to measure
progress and plan the next
instructional steps. This
method guides students
through'their trouble spots
and is effective in
producing successful
readers.
An example of this
approach was used in Sky
Ranch Elementary School in
Oklahoma City, OK.
Teachers used the three-step
process with 69 students in
grade five. The students not
only gained an average of
two grade levels in one
school year, but the school
also had a 90 percent
passing rate on the state's
PASS (Priority Academic
Student Skills) test, earning
it the rank of second highest
among 20 district
elementary schools.

joining them in reading or
discussing the books they
choose. Since different
types of text are read-in
different ways, encourage
your children to, read a
variety of genres:
biographies, folk tales,
poems, articles and so on.
Knowing what words
mean does not
necessarily lead to actual
comprehension of the
text, so keep in mind 14

"Research indicates that
effective or expert readers
are strategic. This means
that they have purposes for
their reading and adjust
their reading to each
purpose and for each
reading task. Strategic
readers use a variety of
strategies and skills as they
construct meaning. "(Paris,
S.G., Wasik, B.A. & Turner,
J. C. (1991). The
development of strategic
readers. In R. Barr,

640). New York: Longinani'i
Help your child practice
these strategies by asking
tlem.'u qufess._nsi ,For '"
example, to help them find
the main idea of a piece, ask
them "What was the


poem/story mostly about?"
Or, to have your child
examine cause and effect,
ask "What happened and
why?" You can also have
your child retell the story in
terms of chronological
events or as a summary.
When you're asking
reading comprehension
questions, use short reading
passages as your material so
that your child can-
concentrate on the strategy
rather than the text or
unfamiliar words. As kids
use the strategies, explain
why their answers are correct
or incorrect so that they get a
-better uiiderrtanding i ofwhat
the% are JoId m ''*'
You can also help children
improve their strategy skills


through "think alouds." That
simply means you verbally
walk through the process that
you used to arrive at the
answer. For example, to
model prediction, you could
say, "I think this book will
be about a frog. who has
dinner because the title is
'Froggy Eats Out.'" When
your child seems
comfortable with the
process, have them do their
own think alouds.
By understanding what is
required of young readers
and how.to help, you'll arm
yourself with the information
needed to enable kids to
