AADC honors



'Live Oak's finest people'


Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter
A warding scholarships to
1 minorities and recogniz-
ing those who make a dif-
ference in the community
is what the African American Devel-
opment Council (AADC) is all
about. ,
The AADC recognized five resi-
dents for their contribution to the
community at the organization's 10th
Annual Roast.and Toast Feb. 4 at
African Baptist Church Annex.
Honorees Edna Ford, Daisy Eagle,
Willie McClendon, Rosa Ford and
the Rev. A. Lee Ford' were roasted
and toasted by family and friends.
They were also showered with gifts
and presented with a plaque of ap-
preciation for their service.
Several kind comments were
made while roasting and toasting the


honorees.
"You've known me before I knew
myself," Donnie Allen said as he
roasted and toasted Edna Ford.
"Your life has always been about
helping others.''
Wanda Ford, daughter of Edna
Ford, said her mother taught her
how to be a friend and a Christian.
"My mother's my best friend," she
said.
"Whatever was set before her she
didn't stop until she got it done,"
Juanita Grimmage said while honor-
ing Daisy Eagle.
Annie Herring said Eagle, a nurse,
took care of her mother and grand-
mother.
"I would say, 'mother what can I
do for you?' 'Call Daisy,' she would
say," Herring told the crowd.
"He's one of the finest men I
know. Very few times a pastor can

Boyette told him there was no
need the Council unani-
mously supported the project
and they voted unanimously
to approve final approval
without Strcula having to
even begin his presentation.
The approval was for the
preliminary plat with the ap-


proval for the final plat ex-
pected March 16. Final
drawings are already in the
hands of the city and no ob-
stacles are foreseen at this
time,, officials said.
Strcula said he expects the
project to get underway in
about six week. He added
the store hopefully will be
ready before Christmas.


Lowe's, one of the first ma-
jor chain stores to locate in
Live Oak since Wal-Mart,
will be located at 72nd Trace
(currently marked as 77th
Trace), the new bypass road,
and US 129 north on the
southeastern side. Lowe's will
be located directly behind
three commercial lots that
front US 129, with ample

and the three commercial lots
will be three other commer-
cial lots that front on US 129
and a stormwater retention
pond required by SRWMD
that will serve all seven lots.
Although no announcements
have been made yet, the six
remaining commercial lots
are expected to be filled with
new businesses.
Strcula said Lowe's is run-
ning water and sewer lines to
the site where the new postal
facility hopefully will be lo-
cated sometime in the future.
Currently, it's on hold due to
a nation-wide freeze on
building new government
buildings.

incidents where they had been
told about or seen students
who were crossing all along
the road on PineWood Way in-
.stead of using the crosswalk.
Students were also stepping
out onto the road without ever
looking and expecting vehi-
cles to stop for them.
Suwannee Hamilton-Tech-
nical Center Principal Diane
Westcott said the problem was
a combination of drivers and
students who were not being
cautious.
-ulThA Salhoql, Board dis-
cussed several possibilities in-
cluding speed bumps along
the road, signs with flashing
caution lights or a fence
around the Technical Center
to funnel student traffic.
After School officials con-
tacted City Manager Bob Far-
ley, the City Council quickly
responded to the concern. The
Council approved to extend
the 20 mph speed limit, previ-
ously in effect during the be-
ginning and end of the school
day, throughout all school


hours. The new speed limit on
Pinewood Way went into ef-
fect Feb. 15.
Additionally, the Council
approved a resolution to allow
the School District to add
flashing lights onto the cur-
rent caution signs in that area.
School Board Maintenance
Director Mark Carver said the
District has already ordered
two sets of lights for the signs
which will be installed
promptly. Though the District
is footing the bill for the lights
-- a project of about $2,500
for each set -- the District is
doing its part. in a joint effort
with the City 'to: address the
problem, he said.
The District sought help
with the funding from the De-
partment of Transportation,
though they were unsuccess-
ful, Carver said.
Carver said when the lights
are installed the District will
repaint the road's lines which
designate the crosswalk.

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


LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Dear Editor:
We are faced with losing irreplaceable photographs,
letters, documents, artifacts and other memorabilia from
World War II if we don't act soon. ,
As you may know, thousands of the World War II gen-
eration are leaving us daily. While movies, books, and
more recently, the. National Memorial in Washington,
D.C., have all attempted to say thank you, the Institute on
World War II and the Human Experience at Florida State
University, has something else in mind: a "living memo-
rial." This is a place where scholars and students, can
come and study the actual documentation and artifacts of
the war period. A museum and repository of artifacts, let-
ters, diaries, photos, oral history transcripts, and most of
all, memories of veterans and Home Front participants.
Since 1997, the Institute has been collecting and is
continuing to find and save the materials of the human
experience of the war era before they are lost to the trash
heap or buried in a closet for another sixty years.
In June 2001, NBC News Anchor Tom Brokaw donat-
ed over a hundred boxes overflowing with letters, pho-
tographs, manuscripts, and books he received from veter-
ans for his own research on the "Greatest Generation."
More recently, a concerted effort to collect the memories
of African-Americans who served in a segregated mili-
tary has reaped dozens of interviews. Also, the Institute
has reached out to the thousands of women who served in
the military, the nurse corps, or participated on the home
front. Everyone's story is important.
And, the Institute on World War II has seen its collec-
tions put to good use; producers for the highly successful
17-part series, on The History Channel, "The Color of
War," extensively used the collections, as have numerous
authors and scholarly researchers. Often, students prepar-
ing projects for History Days travel, to view the collec-
tions.
To donate documents, photographs, artifacts, and other
wartime memorabilia, to make a monetary contribution
or gift in honor/memory of someone, or for more infor-
mation,, contact the Institute at4 850-644-9033, e-maij
ww2@ww2.fsu.edu, or write the Institute on World War
II & the Human Expenence, Florida State tlni\ersaty,

All of this modem technology
such as computers, fax machines
and the like is wonderful as long
as it works properly. Well last


week it did not. The Mayor's Cor-
ner didn't get to the paper as de-
sired. This week's article is really
last week's article. My next article .
will hopefully be the real article
and not the article for the week be- BY SONNY
fore. I'm glad I got that cleared up.
Yeah, right.
Well, we're in the money again. I have tried to keep you
abreast of the progress in getting financial aid for the build-
ing of the new sewer plant. Last year, the city applied for a
Community Development Block Grant to assist in the
building of the facility. The estimated cost of the plant., is
$8.5 million. The exact cost of the project will soon be
known. Hopefully it will be somewhat less. The project bid
requests have gone out and the pre-bid conference was
held Feb. 8. It's not too late to get in those bids. I againen-
courage local contractors to take advantage of this project
and turn in your bid. We need to keep this money local.
Oh yeah, we received notice last week that we were suc-
cessful in getting the grant and will receive $700,000 to be
applied to construction. We have developed a strategy to
hopefully build this plant without having to spend any lo-
cal dollars. If everything falls in place like we plan, we will
be in good shape on our sewer plant finances.
Everything is progressing smoothly in getting a traffic
signal, (red light), at the intersection of Duval Street and
Houston Avenue. The by-pass road has added a tremen-.
dous number of trips on Houston. Last week, a traffic
count was conducted at the intersection. From 7:30 to 8:30
a.m., 815 trips were counted. From 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. 968 ve-
hicles traveled those two roads. Over 1,300 of those were
north and south trips on Houston. The city hired a firm at
a cost of $22,000 to do the engineering. That sounds high
but another company quoted a price of over $30,000. It's
impossible to do anything, anymore without studies, engi-
neering and permits. Sometimes the cost of studies can be
more that the cost of the project. That may be the fact here.
DOT has already given us the signal heads and hopefully
we can get the controller box donated as well. This has
proven to be a very dangerous intersection with many ac-
cidents. Signs were put up which seems to have helped
some. Will a traffic signal help reduce accidents? The prob-
lem is that drivers run red lights just like they disregard
stop signs. The project is being pushed to get this intersec-
ton, signalized as soon as possible. ... .
.I proclaimed Feb. 10 as LOVE INC DAY. Love INC (In
the Name of Christ) is a Christian based organization
funded and supported by area churches. It ministers to the
needs of those in crisis and serves as a clearinghouse to re-
duce the duplication of services. It also directs those in
need to other agencies for assistance. Love INC operates
with volunteers from area churches. I know firsthand the-
good deeds this organization performs in the name of
Christian service. A big THANK YOU goes out to Execu-
tive Director Ginny Peters and the many volunteers and


supporters that provide this min-
istry. We are truly a caring commu-
nity.

0 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK


DPAf- A A


ties were- rather mundane com-
pared to many. To tell you the truth,
-. I didn't really care who played or
won. That would not have been the
case not too many years ago. It's
qOBLES funny how my interests have
changed over the years. Diane was
at the grocery store during the evening and said the chick-
en wing and party platter line was long. Most of my sec-
ond half viewing was done lying on my back and from be-
hind my eyelids. I did check the game out during com-
mercial breaks from another show I was watching. To say
'the least, the commercials were rather interesting. Whats
amazing is the $2.5 million price tag for a 30 second com-
mercial spot. That would have added up to a pretty good
hunk of change considering all the commercials that ran. I
would have had a lot more interest in the game if the
Browns were playing. I could have watched Andra Davis
perform his magic against the opposing team. Writing of
Andra, a.special weekend celebration is planned in June to
recognize his accomplishments. I'll tell you more as that
time approaches.
I was told that school personnel are posted at the en-
trance of the student parking lot each day to make sure
that students are buckled up when they leave school. What
a great thing to do. It will never be known how many seri-
ous injuries or even deaths this act may have prevented.
Now we just need to get the rest of you to do the same.
Buckle up! It's the law and could very well save your life.
Has your business or organization formed your Ameri-
can Cancer Society Relay For Life team? Relay For Life Cel-
ebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Monies raised go to-
ward cancer prevention programs, detection, research, and
patient services. Many are survivors or have had their life
extended due to the work of the Relay For Life program. If
you do.not plan to sponsor a team then give generously to
those who do have a team. What a wonderful sound it is
to hear someone say, "I am a survivor."
St. Valentine's Day was Tuesday. I remind you each year
and beg you not to forget, if you know what's good for
you. My grandson got into a little trouble the other day
and was sent to the bedroom to think about his transgres-
sion. After a few minutes he came back to the living room
and told me he had learned his lesson. If you forgot this
year, you probably learned your lesson also. Hopefully
you expanded your show of love and affection to others
rather than just your family members or loved ones.
Maybe you even went out of your way to show some kind-
ness to others, maybe even someone you may not like. Boy
that would have blown their mind.
Now, I wish everyone a belated happy Valentines Day. I
thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the
opportunity to serve as your Mayor. It has been a very re-
warding and satisfying experience. I work very hard every
day and night to protect the trust you placed in me.
Thanks.

The Dogs have a new de-
fensive coordinator. Tommy
Chambers, the coach picked'
by eight members of the.
search committee for head
football coach in 2005, has
applied for and been named
Suwannee's new defensive
coordinator.
Chambers is currently
Dean of Students, but in a
past life, Chambers was
head football coach at'
Branford High for six
years. Chambers said he
missed coaching, missed
football and missed the
kids.
"I enjoy working with
student athletes and I love
football," Chambers said.
"When you coach football.
for 25 years of your life,
it's a little hard to get out
of your system."
Chambers has a solid


football background. He
played,defensive back at
Mars Hill College in North
Carolina. After graduating,
Chambers took up coaching
at his alma mater Pisgah
High in Canton, NC. Cham-
bers was the JV coach for
two years there and then the
defensive coordinator for
two years before he moved
to Branford.
Chambers coached at
Branford High for 15 years
and was head football.
coach from 1986 to 1991.
He moved on to Suwannee
High where he was defen-
sive coordinator from 1996
to 1999. Yes, he coached
the Dogs on their trip to the
state championships in his
last year as defensive coor-
dinator.
"I don't care about
records as much as what
athletics does for kids, what
it did for me," Chambers
said. "Athletics makes bet-
ter people when the kids

become adults and enter the
community."
Head football coach Bob-
by Bennett said he's excited
about having Chambers on
his staff as the defensive
coordinator. "I believe I've
developed a good relation-
ship with Coach Chambers
over the last year. Coach
Chambers has a good rela-
tionship with the kids and
brings a lot of experience to
the job."
Chambers said he went to
Bennett when the job
opened up and asked Ben-
nett how he would feel if he
applied for the job. "Coach
Bennett was very support-
ive and the administration
was very supportive,"
Chambers said.
Chambers also said his
family is very supportive.
"My wife loves it," Cham-
bers said about wife Wanda.

Suwannee men's soccer season ended Jan.
24 in the district tournament against the state-
ranked Middleburg Broncos (14-2-3).
Suwannee started strong with good defensive
play and two solid shots on goal. However,
Middleburg scored early on a PK from a Bull-
dog foul in the box. Shortly after a Suwannee

Farm Bureau and Ronald McDonald


House celebrate Check-Out Day


Food Check-Out Day
2006 was celebrated, Feb. 2,
at Ronald McDonald House
in Tallahassee. To celebrate
the event, local Farm Bu-
reau's donated over $800
worth of fresh, Florida-pro-
duced fruits, vegetables,
meats and dairy products to
the charity. During Food
Check-Out Week, Farm Bu-
reau members across the na-
tion creatively mark the
time when most Americans
have earned enough dispos-
able income to pay for all
the food they eat, both at
home and away from home,
for the entire year.
Suwannee County Farm
Bureau President George
Poucher stated, "The bounty
of safe, affordable food pro-
duced by America's farmers
and ranchers benefits con-
sumers, who pay less for
food than citizens of any
other country in the world."
On average, Americans
spend just 9.5 percent of
their disposable income on
food, according to United
States Department of Agri-
culture statistics. This,
means it takes only 35 days
for most Americans to earn
enough money to buy their
groceries for the entire year.
Poucher added, "Tax
Freedom Day, which is, the
total number of days this
same family has to work in
order to pay for all the dif-
ferent taxes that the average
family incurs each year,
doesn't happen until May."
"The recipient of the free
groceries was Ronald Mc-

Donald House, which is,'a"
great charity." said Poucher.
"We have worked with
Ronald McDonald House
for 10 years.. to ,celebi-ate
"Food Check-Out Day."'
There were several mem-
bers of the board of direc-
tors of Ronald McDonald
House in Tallahassee pre-
sent to receive the gift. Farm
Bureau prepared a meal for
all the directors as well as
several families staying at
the House who have chil-


dren in local hospitals in
Tallahassee.
"We need to tell our story
at every event we can. Peo-
ple need to understand, that
food in America is the safest
supply of any in the world.
They also need to be told it
is abundant ,as well as af-
fordable. We've got a great
story to tell: Food is a great
bargain in America,'" Pouch-
er went on to say.'
When you consider the
average price increases


Americans have absorbed
for vehicles, gasoline and
other consumer products
over the past 20 years, the
cost of food seems like a
real bargain. "Our nation's
increasing standard of living
would certainly be reduced
without our safe, abundant
and affordable domestic
food supply," said Poucher.
. Food in America remains
affordable any way you slice
it, thanks to the farmers and
ranchers who produce it.

questing assistance. The organization provides a food pantry,
financial assistance, transportation and other opportunities for
those in need. The ministry also implements a follow-up pro-
gram and counseling to help people climb out of poverty.
Love INC Executive Director Ginny Peters said the pro-
gram, under the umbrella of the United Way, works a couple
of ways. An individual can call in asking for assistance and
Love INC will contact different churches requesting donations
to meet the need.
"I may call a church saying, 'I have a single mom trying to
pay her power bill,' and ask if they can donate $40 toward the
bill," Peters said, explaining Love INC collects small dona-
tions from different churches in the organization until the need
is met.
Churches can also refer people in need to the organization.
Love INC receives referrals from the White Foundation and
other organizations.
Barbara Hodges, who has been a volunteer for Love INC
for several years, said the organization gets a lot of clients
who only need help on a one-time basis.
"A lot of people are just in a pinch. They have lost their jobs
or have had a medical emergency," Hodges said.
For clients who have a history of poverty, Love INC works
hard to help them break the cycle.
"A couple from one of our churches may sit down with a
family and teach them how to set up a budget," Peters said.
"Many people in these situations just need a few life skills and
a little guidance."
The organization partners with Employment Connections to
provide help with employment. They also can provide refer-
rals for housing.
Those requesting assistance complete an application and re-
quests are screened, Peters said.
The organization operates on a volunteer basis. Churches,
organizations and agencies contribute financially, providing
service through volunteer work and donate resources.
At Love INC's annual corporation meeting recently, church
and organization leaders met together to discuss the organiza-
tion's goals and successes throughout the year. Love INC re-
ceived 6,036 requests for assistance in 2005 and met 5,767 of
those needs through assistance or referrals. The organization
provided $355,745 in financial assistance in 2005.
Live Oak Mayor Sonny Nobles declared Feb. 10 as Love
INC day.
"I feel strongly about recognizing groups that help people in
the community," Nobles said. "Love INC has helped people
get their lives back together again."
Nobles said the organization played a role in assisting evac-
uees during the 2005 hurricane season and supports other or-
ganizations such as Vivid Visions.
Peters said Love INC is important because it helps the com-
munity pool together its resources, reduces duplication of ser-
vices and helps clients better use the system and prevents
clients from abusing the system.
"When the organization first started 15 years ago we got
two to three calls a day; now some people can't get through,"
Peters said.
in ,; i 1The organization is in need of another phone line and more
Svolntueers to anr,\ er calls, she said. : .
"It's a worthy organization and a charity that could use the
help of more churches," Hodges said.
Individuals needing assistance or churches, organizations or
agencies wanting to partner with Love INC can contact the or-
ganization at 364-4673 between 9 a.m. and noon Monday
through Friday.

OM THE BUSINESS FkOT- -


ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Your Chamber Board of Directors met along with the Board
of Directors for the Council for Progress, Suwannee County
Development Authority and the Tourist Development Council
in the first ever joint meeting of all the organizations that make
up the Suwannee County Economic Alliance. The purpose of
this meeting was to discuss the structure, areas of responsibili- E 9
ty and the total focus of the Alliance.
The Council for Progress and the Suwannee County Devel-
opment Authority continue to work on numerous projects with
companies considering establishing their business in our area.
With the many prime locations, rail, interstate and major high-
way availability established in Suwannee County, companies
continue to seek information and details about relocation to D
Suwannee County. This process can be extremely competitive Dennis Cason
and time consuming working. Customizing details to each spe- Economic Alliance
cific business inquiry as well as considering the potential to im- President
prove the job availability and skill levels for employers and em-
ployees alike involve many private, local and state organizations to work together. Thank you
to all who have attended these meetings, offered their input and assisted in the many ways in
putting information together for these projects.
As spring begins to arrive we encourage you to get out and enjoy the many outdoor activ-
ities Suwannee County has to offer. If Susan, Laura or I can be of any assistance we welcome

NATIONAL FRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH


Pastor's life proves trials can only strengthen your calling


Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter

Called into the ministry at a young age, the Rev. Clifton
Riley will tell you he has found his purpose in life.
But, "it didn't happen overnight," he said.
As a child Riley would have visions of what he de-
scribes as a far away place and a bright city. The same vi-
sion would appear to him from time to time growing up,
but at 26 years of age the vision came with a new twist. It
was the same but in it he saw Jesus shining brightly before
him telling him to go and preach the Gospel.
And that he did. In the last 25 years Riley has pastored
five of the eight AME churches in Suwannee County. Cur-
rently he is pastoring St. Hebron AME Church in Quincy.
Riley said before he was called into the ministry people
would often ask him if he was a preacher. "I would deny
it," he said, admitting preaching wasn't what he wanted to
do at the time. Later, after Riley accepted the calling, he
realized it was his purpose.
"Looking back God was molding me and preparing me,"
he said. "I was always somewhat of a leader in the midst
of my peers though I didn't realize it."
Helping people find hope, strength and direction in Je-
sus Christ is Riley's heart for the ministry. With these
goals in mind, he plans to expand several facets of his
ministry to reach youth, senior citizens, couples and sin-
gles. He is also in the process of preparing to build a new
church facility in Quincy.
For black history month Riley narrowed his favorite
black leaders down to three men of influence. And
though they are not nationally known, .they are known to
Suwannee County. Three AME Church ministers have
mentored and encouraged him to become the man of
God and minister he is today.
The Rev. Lee Ford had the privilege of being the
first African American to sit on the School Board in
Suwannee County. He also had the privilege of pour-
ing hope and encouragement into Riley.
"Rev. Ford is an inspiration to me," Riley said.
"He's always encouraged me to do well, to persevere
and to go on in spite, of opposition."
Another leader who impacted him was the late
Julius Allen, who was a presiding elder in the church.
Riley said Allen was his father in the ministry.
"He directed me in every aspect of the ministry,"
Riley said. "He encouraged me and allowed me to
grow."
Another leader who imparted wisdom into Riley
was the late Rev. Henry Smith, a man whom Riley
says was something like a philosopher.
Riley said once he and Smith were in attendance at a
large funeral another minister was conducting. Smith
said to him, "Young man. .a .service of this magnitude is
too much for the flesh. You ha\e to rely upon the Spirit of


God."
Riley knew the wise minister was teaching him
he could not rel\ on -elf as a pastor
"He \%as sa ing to me the nininstr, is bigger
than self. Those \\ord.v \'ll sta\ th me all of
my life." Rile s.,aid
During black historN month Rile\ is taking
the opportunity, to recognize outsai.nding
leaders in the black connmmunit\ and icach lus
south h about leaders, \ho ha e impacted
fields such as education, science and tech-
nolog..
"\\e \\ill probably focus on the late Coretta

Scott King and what she contributed to the
Civil Rights Movement," he said.
During February the church will also be
celebrating the international Founder's
Day of the AME Church.
Concerning race relations, Riley said
God isn't pleased when different races in
the Christian community don't come to-
gether.
"Because of race we find ourselves sepa-
rated during worship," he said. "God is our
Father so that makes us related. If we all
would come together, America would
change."
Riley said he has seen integration im-
prove race relations from the time he was
in school.
"The younger generation doesn't see or
feel that division like we did because of
the opportunity children have to experi-
ence being around other races," he said.
Though Riley's generation was reminded
constantly they were different, the younger
generation doesn't as easily accept this
mindset because of the opportunities all
youth now have.
"My son said to me one time, 'Dad we're
no different,'" he said, emphasizing the
difference between the mindsets of pre-
and post-integration times.
Remembering the past, Riley said though
his parents always told him he could be suc-


cessful in life if he
worked hard, he was al-
ways reminded in the
home he was different.
"Because we weren't
allowed to drink out of
the same water fountain
or use the same
restrooms our parents
had to constantly remind
us who we were so we
wouldn't forget and step
out of line," he said.


Riley remembers standing up on public buses to surren-
der his seat to white folks, playing in the street because
blacks weren't allowed into public recreation parks and
never having the opportunity to "eat out" because only
whites were allowed in restaurants.
"We just did without," he said about the missed opportu-
nities of those difficult times.
Riley recalls being in the ninth grade when the public
schools integrated. He said there was a period of time be-
fore the schools were not yet fully integrated where chil-
dren had a choice of where to attend school. His parents
sent him to the school with white children before his
friends were sent. He remembers it being a lonely place
with no friends and no one to lean on.
"It was awful. There were very few blacks at the school
and the ones who were there were all to themselVes," he
said.
Riley remembers the teachers and students being friend-
ly, yet his school experience was never the same. The cel-
ebrations and school events that were culturally engaging
were left behind at the Douglass schools where all blacks
attended during segregation.
Though times were hard and racial equality was slim Ri-
ley acknowledges that hard times served to build his faith
and make him a stronger person.
"We were taught to trust God even in times of lack. Be-
ing without, but still having enough we never lost our fo-
cus on God. We were survivors," he said.
During his childhood years though Riley knew he was
seen as different in an intolerant society he said, "We did-
n't feel we were less. We had a lot of pride and respect for
each other."

NATIONAL AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH,,


Business owner's



tailoring career spans


almost 30 years


Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter

Paulene Allen, of Allen's Fashions, is
where she is today because of two ladies in
the community who cared enough to push
her to attend college. The result was Allen
finding what she really loved and becoming
a business owner in downtown Live Oak.
In 1968, a recruiting team from Florida
A&M came to what was formerly Douglass
High School to recruit underprivileged peo-
ple in the area for a training program. Allen
had already finished high school and was
working at Suwannee Health Care Center at
the time. Two women who she described as
"ladies of the community" came to the hos-
pital and told Allen she would be a good
candidate for the program.
"They (Mrs. Fuller and Gladys Jones)
came to the hospital several times to make
sure I'd signed up. The day before the dead-
line they came and asked me if I had gone. I
said, 'No.' They said, 'Get in the car you're
going,'" Allen. recalls.
The two ladies took Allen to register for
the program on a Thursday afternoon and by
that Sunday she was leaving Live Oak to at-
tend FAMU.
At the university Allen went through the
Manpower Program to pursue the tailoring
trade. She wanted to go into the accounting


field but the program had already become
full.
Though Allen had a decent job at Suwan-
nee Health Care, she was thankful for the
two ladies who encouraged her to get extra
training because she recalls that times were
hard.
"Even in the 60s it was real bad," she said.
"Mostly around here (Live Oak) there was
just field work at that time."
Allen didn't get to pursue the field of her
choice, but as it turned out she would fall in
love with tailoring, doing alterations and
renting tuxedos.
After college, Allen again found her life
guided by people who cared. As she was job
hunting there were a couple of well-known
families who managed department stores in
downtown Tallahassee who were willing to
help her any way they could. She landed her
first job as a tailor in downtown Tallahassee
where she was brought on staff to fill in for
the tailor who was on leave for three
months. The store owner told her after his
employee returned to work he would find
her a job, and he did. She worked doing tai-
loring and alterations at different places
downtown and at what was then the North-
wood Mall in Tallahassee.
After the Tallahassee Mall moved into
town, Allen was there browsing when she
saw a shop with what she called "beautiful
clothes."


away as the Alabama line to measure cus-
tomers for tuxes.
During her time in Tallahassee she had the
opportunity to fit many dignitaries and peo-
ple of interest, including a lieutenant gover-
nor, a president of the Board of Regents of
Education and many legislators and judges.
"When they, would go in Legislatile ses-
sion, the Legislators would come to us to get
their tuxes ready," she said. "I also had the
opportunity to fit (news anchor) Frank Ran-
icky and (sports announcer) Gene Decker-
hoff."
The most memorable fitting session Allen
remembers is when she measured several


JORKS guys in a wedding for a Tampa Bay
aulene Buccaneers football player. Several of
ions in the guys were players on the team and
Works Allen said they were "huge."
a "They had big legs and arms and
ess small waists. I had to basically take the
for uoes apart to fit them," she said.
Allen said she has become so good at
i hat she does, she can almost deter-
mine the tux dimensions before she
e\ er even measures. She can also tell if
a garment is stained just by feeling
the fabric.
Being so skilled at her trade fell
to her benefit when a man who
didn't speak much English came
in to be fitted for a wedding and
to order the rentals for the

provided no measurements for
his groomsmen, she got all the
,measurements correct without
... understanding much of anything
A- he said.
Allen moved back to Live
Oak and soon after opened her
business downtown after her el-
derly mother began needing her
assistance.
Allen said her mother's grand-
mother, Elizabeth Williams, was a
slave who walked from Virginia to
Florida with her child after the
slaves were freed. Her great-grand-
mother met her great-grandfather on the
Suwannee River and the couple had 13 chil-
dren.
The only thing Allen really knows about
her great-grandmother was that she liked to
sew.
"Sewing just comes natural to me," she
said. "They told me my great-grandmother
made all her children's clothes. I guess that's
what we have in common."
"I often wonder why my great-grandmoth-
er didn't go north," she commented.
Allen gained strong ;values and a solid
work ethic from her mother who taught her
that hard work and dignity pay off.
"Mother told me, 'You might not be a leader
at anything, but whatever you do, do it well. If
you only make 50 cents a day make it honest
and be proud of that,'" Allen said.

"I would pass by the
shop and admire the
clothes," she said. "They
weremen's clothes. Didn't
realize they were tuxedos
at the time."
Allen was hired at the
very shop she admired --
Squires Limited, which she
wound up managing for
more than 20 years before
moving back to Live Oak.
During the time she was
in the tailoring business in
Tallahassee, Allen regularly
visited the fraternity hous-
es at Florida State Univer-

tuxedos. She also traveled

say this honestly," the Rev.
H.J. Boone said as he honored
Willie McClendon.
McClendon's son-in-law,
Henry Betsy, said his father-in-
law is a father figure who has
helped guide him in leading his
own family.
Jennifer Copeland, grand-
daughter of Rosa Ford, said her
grandmother has been an exam-
ple of God.
"I love to be in her presence.
She has an awesome way about
her," Copeland said.
"If Sister Ford said, 'move
this mountain,' it would fall
down into the valley because
she is for real," County Com-
missioner Doug Udell said.
Ozell Ford, nephew of the
Rev. A. Lee Ford, said his uncle
has done more than his share in
furthering race relations, as he
was the first African American
to sit on the School Board in
Suwannee County.
"He taught me how .to work
and live and .to do the right
thing. He had a profound effect
on my life," Horice Ford said
about his uncle, the Rev. A. Lee
Ford.
During the event the crowd
enjoyed entertainment from
several singers and the youth
dance and praise team from
Gethsemane Church of God in
Christ. All enjoyed a wonderful
meal of chicken or ham and
dressing with all the trimmings.
AADC President Yvonne
Scott said in an interview later
the Annual Roast and Toast
serves as a fund-raiser for the
organization to fund scholar-
ships for minority students.
"Though we haven't counted
the total funds raised from tick-
et sales, we know we made
about $2,000 at the door," she
said.
Scott said the 31-member


AADC organization gave more
than $10,000 in scholarships to
students in Suwannee County in
2005. The scholarships are
funded through donations and
fund-raisers.
Additionally, some of the
members have scholarships set
up in their names or names of
family members. Scott has one
set up in her husband's memory
and one in memory of her son
who died of a drug overdose.
The scholarship in her son's
memory is a spring board to go
into the schools and talk about
the dangers of drugs.
AADC goes into the schools
in Suwannee County each year
in April to recruit applicants and
awards scholarships in May.
Scott said some scholarships
consider students' GPAs as a
qualification, but a certain GPA
isn't a pre-requisite to be a re-
cipient.
"If you have the mind and
will to do something, GPAs
won't stop you," she said.
AADC Vice President the
Rev. Clifton Riley said his son
received a scholarship from the
organization to attend school at
Florida State University in the
summer. The funds opened
doors for him since his Florida
Bright Futures scholarship
wouldn't cover summer school.
"This was a beginning for
him. It meant so much, he's now
a contributor to the organiza-
tion," Riley said, explaining his
son finished college and is now
working as an engineer at Pep-
siCo in Kissimmee.
Scott said AADC was found-
ed by Alphonso Philmore 10
years ago to provide opportuni-
ties for minorities in the com-
munity.
"At the time not many
African Americans were receiv-
ing scholarships at Suwannee
High School, and we wanted to
change that," she said.

Battle Of Olustee Re-enactment Potbellied cathead basket


features medical history


The rigors of a poorly trained
medical corps working in field
hospitals lacking even basic
sanitation during the American
Civil War will be featured in
living history demonstrations at
the Battle of Olustee Reenact-
ment from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.,
Friday through Sunday, Feb.
17-19, at Olustee Battlefield
Historic State Park, Olustee.
The park is located on US 90,
15 miles east of 1-75 and Lake
City and 50 miles west of Jack-
sonville and 1-95.
Surgeons and medics treated
more than 10 million cases of
disease and injury during the
four years of armed conflict.
Their experiences marked the
birth of modem medicine in the
United States, bringing im-
provements in the tools and de-
livery of medical care, and sig-
naling the entry of women in
the medical profession.
More than 600,000 men per-
ished during the Civil War from
disease and injury. Maily of the
wounded were hit by the "min-
nie ball," a .58-caliber iron slug
fired from a high-velocity,
muzzle-loading rife. The min-
nie ball shattered bones and


usually proved fatal if it lodged
in the head or abdomen. Yet
three-fourths of the wounds in-
flicted during the war affected
the body's limbs. Historians es-
timate that 75 percent of all op-
erations performed during the
war were amputations, and 75
percent of those patients sur-
vived. Women volunteered
their time and energy to care for
the wounded, incidentally cre-
ating the nursing profession.
More than 2,000 living histo-
ry enthusiasts gather each year
at Olustee Battlefield Historic
State Park to present lifelike
and historically accurate por-
trayals of the war's toll on both
civilian and military life. Med-
ical demonstrations are planned
twice daily on Saturday and
Sunday. Period music concerts,
military camps and reenactors
portray drills and the lives of
both white and black civilians
during the war. The living his-
tory weekend features a Civil
War-era battle reenactment on
Saturday, as well as the reenact-
ment of the Battle of Olustee on
Sunday. Saturday's battle be-
gins at 3:30 p.m. and Sunday's
battle is at 1:30 p.m.


The Battle of Olustee was
fought on Feb. 20, 1864. Full-
scale artillery, mounted cavalry,
and three African American
regiments, including the 54th
Massachusetts took part in the
fighting that day. The Battle of
Olustee was Florida's largest
Civil War battle, resulting in
2,807 casualties and a Confed-
erate victory.
Educational programs are
planned for Friday's School
Day when both public and pri-
vate school students are invited
to attend the reenactment, free
of charge. School groups may
contact Mitzi Nelson at 386-
397-4461 to register for the
event. Admission on Saturday
and Sunday is $4 for adults and
$2 for students'. Children age 5
and under are admitted free of
charge. Food concessions will
be available. Pets are not al-
lowed at Olustee Battlefield
Historic State Park during the
reenactment.. For more infor-

Branford FFA


FFA was founded in 1928 and brought forth a
spectacular up rise in the world of agriculture by
putting students, teachers and businesses together
with agriculture. Branford High School FFA has
been strongly established since the 1930's, actively
promoted agriculture and has participated in
many contests involving agriculture through FFA.
With hard work and dedication our chapter, takes
precedence in all that it does. The Branford FFA
Chapter has participated in many events this year


"Growing Every Day"
including harvesting, seedless watermelons and
strawberries. From selling chicken dinners to
washing cars our chapter has done very well with
National Convention fund-raisers. We have at-
tended State and National Conventions and have
competed in several different career development
events including: Farm Judging, Forestry Judging,
Ag Mechanics, Dairy Judging, Farm Business
Management, Tractor Driving, Horse Judging,
Creed Speaking, Prepared Speaking, Extempora-


neous Speaking and Parliamentary Procedure. For
National FFA Week we will be participating in
many activities including: Ag in the classroom,
breakfast for teachers, a membership drive, giving
boiled peanuts out during middle school and high
school lunch, Ag-Related dress up day, hat-day,
presentations to the middle school classes and
also a door decorating contest throughout the
school.

Coach David Laxton was

Chambers said he really
missed a lot about coaching
football, the kids and the
camaraderie among the
coaches. "I miss the rela-


tionship with the other
coaches and even the op-
posing coaches." Chambers
added, "I know the staff. I1
feel we have a very experi-
enced bunch of coaches and
I know we want to get
Suwannee football back to

Bennett said he feels
Chambers has the same phi-

does. "We come from a:
similar standpoint," said
Bennett.
"I told Coach Bennett he
doesn't have to worry about

Chambers.

another close shot at six min-

McDonald, who has been re-
cruited by top-ranked Clem-
son, scored again on a pin-
point kick at 70 minutes of
play.
The rest of the game saw
many offensive drives, one
by Cullen Boggus and JD
Hales which was stopped by
the keeper on the goal line of
the net. The Suwannee de-
fense repelled attack after at-
tack, with many skillful saves
by Matt Yanossy. The end of
the game was marred by an
altercation and a yellow card

At Olympics, WMU team to


convey More Than Gold


By Erin Curry Roach


TURIN, Italy (BPi-A
team of 11 women from
Woman's Missionary Union
will travel to Italy Feb. 18-26
with the goal of sharing their
faith as they interact with
people from all over the
world at the 2006 Olympics
inmTurin.
The volunteers will partner
\\ith More Than Gold, the
organization that coordinates
evangelical efforts during the
games, with most of their'
work involving street evan-
gelism.
"There are all kinds of ac-
tivities that go on around the
Olympics, so we'll get in
lines and go into, the activi-
ties and talk to people," An-
drea Mullins, publisher for
WMU's New Hope book di-
vision and team leader for
the trip, told Baptist Press:
"We'll be doing face paint-
ing and balloon art to engage
people. I have one friend
who sometimes goes as .a
clown, and we, all work
around her, networking the
crowd that she gathers."
The women expect to be
out on the streets most of the
time, walking alongside peo-
ple and initiating conversa-
tions, Mullins said, and one
of the easiest ways to start
talking is to trade' Olympic
pins.
"There are millions of
Olympic pins, and every
Olympic year they come out
with specific pins for that
year," she said. "You can go
on the website and see some
of them. Some of them are
very expensive; they have
movement and everything
, else."
The WMU women from
various states will offer to
give away More Than Gold
pins, which have been iused
at previous Olympics and are
specially designed to foster a
presentation of the Gospel.
"We'll say, 'I have a pin
that represents my organiza-
tion. I'd like to give it to
you..' Our pins are just beau-
tiftil, and no one ever turns
them down," Mullins said.
"When we give it to them,
we'll say, 'Can I tell you
what it means and what it
stands for?' And they always
say, 'Sure.'"
Along with the More Than
Gold pins, volunteers will
distribute Gospel tracts pro-
duced specifically for the
Olympics, complete with a
list of the venues and a place
to keep track of the scores
and results. Information


about some Christian ath-
letes also. is included,
Mullins said.
"The driving emphasis be-
hind what we do is the theme
More Than Gold, so as we
share Christ, the way it's de-
scribed in the pamphlet is
that these gold medalists
have discovered there is
something worth more than
gold, and that is a relation-
\:ship with God, through His
Son J esus, Christ," she said.
"We use that as the little
nugget that connects us to
the Olympics."
WMU uses only Olympic-
themed witnessing materials
when they travel to the"
Games, Mullins said, and
they're very high quality and
attractive so that people will
be interested in reading
them.
"We will also have New
Testaments in both English
and Italian, and our tracts are
in both English and Italian,"
she said. "The Olympics are
mostly in English, but some-
times you have the opportu-
nity to engage someone in
their native language,. and
we're focusing our materials
mainly on the Italians.
"There are many volun-
teers that come that speak
other languages and they're
used in different settings. We
have some volunteers that


are .actually in the Olympic
Village working with the ath-
letes, and usually they might
be chaplains or people with
certain language skills," she
added.
This will make Mullins'
fifth Olympic trip and her
fourth time, to lead a team.
She went by herself to the
Salt Lake City Olympics and
worked alongside other
Southern Baptists there..
."The incredible ,thing
about the Olympics is that
you actually. have an opporL
tunity to share the Gospel
with people from all over the
world, and because they're at
the' Olympics they're more
open," she said. "You can
just walk up and talk to any-
one in a way that you're just
not normally free to do....
[A]t the Olympics people
want to talk, they want to
meet other people. They're
there to engage the experi-
ence."
Another exciting element,
Mullins said, -is that each
time she has taken a team,
she has seen how Christians
are able to use their gifts for
God's glory. i
"I love to lead teams of
women because when it's
just women on the team, they
are freed up sometimes to do
things that they always kind
'of stand back and let the

If someone from our past has done
something to us which really caused
us pain, there is a good chance that
we may still feel some bitterness
toward that person \\1iether it wa:s a
painful ending to a relationship,
some particularly harsh or
humiliating words, or someone
taking from us something that was
rightfully ours, in these situations it
is perfectly natural to feel bitterness.
Hlowetef, the dilemma is that this
bi tterne a,.s.. i O ^ t-
energy."
reseatme

our mind, reusing to orgive or
forger, in much the same wav as we
repeatedly probe a cut on the inside
of our mouth with our tongue: it
hurts, and vet we are drawn to probe
this sensitive area again and again.
There may be some wisdom in
remembering the words and actions
of those who ha'e harmed us so as to
avoid similar future situation which
would allow them to harm us again
And yet, we really must forgi'i. them
or we will toreter be engulfed in
bitterness. Simpy stated, the more
people there are whom we cannot
forgive, the more our life will bc
awash in bitterness And, the greater
our capacity for forgiveness, the
more love and joy that will fill our
life. So, forgi e always, e'en if we
cannot forget.

With Valentine's Day here and gone,
our thoughts naturally turn to
romance and love, and we might
wonder whether it is possible to
actually be more romantic. Happily,
the answer is yes, and what I am
going to tell you works for both
romantic love and for its more
platonic versions as well. The advice
is simply this: take a genuine
interest in Vour beloved. Instead of
focusing your it'-f
on yourself, foedtisA
them questions BH|
and draw themrit o
comfortable telling you about
themselves. Everyone has ideas and
feelings about numerous things, and
our showing an interest in those we
love indicates our hearing and love
for them. Although often
unintended, too many of us insult
our friends and spouses by never
bothering to inquire about their
thoughts and feelings. (Conversely,
the French essayist La
Rochefoucauld said that "Lovers
never get tired of each other,
because they are always talking
about themselves." So, if we take a
genuine interest in the lives of our
spouse and loved ones, perhaps their
response to us may be surprising.

Continued From Page 1B

we could close ranks and
play quality ball even with-
out the two starters we lost
last week."
In addition to Dustin Doe
leaving the team, Mario
Hawthorne was unable to re-
cover in time to return to the
team. He turned .his ankle
before the Columbia Game
Saturday.
"It was a poor third quarter
that really did us in," said
coach Chris Martello. "We
were doubled on the score-
board that period, 7-14."
Other than that period, the
Bulldogs outscored Bradford
by four points.
"A good warm-up after the
half-time break is essential
to setting the tone for the
second half," Martello said.
"I have to admit that I didn't
notice the quality of the post
half-time warm-up. I would
like to have had the team run
through some offensive sets
during that time."
Bradford, the district host,
should be given its due. "We
beat them twice in the regu-
lar season an overtime win
by five at our place and a
come-from-behind win in
Starke, 68-60.
"I scouted an early season
game where top-seeded
Ridgeview mercy ruled
Bradford in Bradford," said
Martello. (The "Mercy Rule"
forces a running clock when
a team is leading by 35 or
more.) "Bradford definitely
improved from the beginning.


of the season to the end."
Jevon Smith was the
game's high scorer with 19
points. Nate Herring pitched
in 13, Keith Brown nine,
Ryan Hight eight and Chris
Bevel hit a lone three-point-
er.
The Bulldogs were down
by two points after the third,
down by as many as nine ear-
ly in the fourth, but fought
back and cut it to one, 52-53
with about a minute left to
play.
"We had several attempts
to take the lead with about 30
seconds left, but we couldn't
get it to go in," Martello
said.
Down by one, the Bull-
dogs fouled on the other end
and Bradford hit both free
throws to go up by three.
With 12 seconds left, the
Bulldogs were actually able
to get off two 3-point at-
tempts before time expired.
"It was a disappointing end
to an otherwise good season.
We felt we were good
enough to bring home the
school's first district champi-
onship in a number of sea-'
sons and are disappointed we
fell short," Martello said.
"It's time to start work on
bringing home that champi-
onship with next year's
team."
The boys and girls basket-

Alapaha riverbed off limits


to ATV's other vehicles


According to Suwannee
River Water Management
District, law enforcement
officers soon will begin is-
suing citations to persons
who operate ATVs and other
vehicles in the Alapaha
riverbed and on its banks, in
violation of Suwannee River
Water Management District
rules.
The District will post
warning signs at locations
known to be entrance points
for riders, including near the
bridge at SR 6 and US 41 in
Hamilton County.
Until signs are posted, of-
ficers will explain the rule
to violators, issue warnings
and ask riders to leave the
area.
The rule banning motor-
ized vehicles was adopted
by the District governing
board in late 2004 and
amended earlier this year
following publication of a


Department of Environmen-
tal Protection (DEP) report
describing ecological dam-
age associated with the use
of vehicles in the dry
riverbed and on its banks:
Damage cited in the report
includes destruction of veg-
etation, significant bank
erosion, and smothering of
habitats important for fish
and wildlife. The report rec-
ommended that motorized
vehicles be kept out of the
entire river system, includ-
ing the flood plain, river
banks, and riverbed to pre-
vent further environmental
damage.
The rule has been incor-
porated into Chapter 40B-
4.3040, Florida Administra-
tive Code and states: "It is
prohibited for any person to
operate any motorized vehi-
cle within a work of the
[water management] district
that includes the channel of


q stream as defined by the
normally recognized bank.
Law enforcement officers,
during the normal course of
their duties, are exempt
from this rule."
Chapter 373 of the Florida
Statutes authorizes the Dis-
trict to make such rules, and
section 613 states that a vio-
lation of the rule is a second
degree misdemeanor, pun-
ishable by a fine of up to
$500 or up to 60 days in jail.
"District lands are open
for recreational opportuni-
ties such as hiking, biking
and fishing, and we even al-
low limited ATV use at Mal-
lory Swamp during non-
hunting season," said Jon
Dinges, District director of
resource management. "But
our highest priority is the
protection of our natural re-
sources and in most cases,
ATV use is not compatible
with that goal."

selves, "The SMS Puzzlers."
Every day since the begin-
ning of school, these seventh
grade students have come in
early from their lunch period to


put together jigsaw puzzles
ranging from 100 piece puzzles
to 1,000 piece puzzles. Their
sponsor, Melissa Brinson,
could not bear the thought of
tearing apart the puzzles after
cminpklli Ii. so she contacted
area businesses for support to
help frame the puzzles so they
could be hung in and around


SMS.
Area businesses that have
been so gracious in helping to
frame the puzzles include: The
Frame Shop and Gallery, Rain-
bow's End, McCall's Construc-
tion, Suwannee Glass, Ben-
nett's Glass and The Live Oak
Artist's Guild.
These businesses have been


very gracious in their donations
of time, materials and support
to help make this club's goals
achievable. The club wishes to
express a sincere thanks to each
of these businesses who have
been so support xe.
Working on jigsaw puzzles
has been researched and results
have shown that students who


engage in these activities will
increase their ability to critical-
ly think, reason and engage in
eye-hand coordination..
At the present time, there are
17 framed jigsaw puzzles hung
at Suwannee Middle School.
The puzzles are 'mostly science
content theme puzzles.

Home sch(

(ARA) As more
families learn of the many
benefits of home
instruction, the number of
families turning to home-
schooling to educate their
children continues to
grow. More school-age
children in the U.S. are
being home-schooled than
ever before -- more than 2
million -- and that number
,will increase throughout
this school year as more
'children leave public and
private schools for the
home-school
environment.
Home-schooling is
appealing to families who
:have concern for a child's
academic performance, a
conflict with a teacher or
other students, or the need
for more individualized
pacing to maximize the
child's learning potential.
"Families who see that the
current educational
setting isn't working need
tan alternative," says Jean
C. Halle, president of
Calvert Education
'Services, the home-school
division of the Calvert
Schqol, based in
Baltimore, Md. "Home-
schooling appeals to them
as an immediate solution,
often during the school
year."
About half of Calvert
School's 20,000 students
leave another educational
setting to enroll in the
private school's home
instruction program,'
Halle notes. The school
welcomes students
throughout the year.
"Families can start our
program at any time of
the year," she says.'
When Dr. David Morris
found his home in Jasper,
Texas, and the
surrounding area severely
damaged by Hurricane
Rita and its aftermath in
September, he needed an
educational solution for
his grandson, Yuma, 11, a
sixth-trader. He chose to
home-school.
Like many communities
devastated by recent
hurricanes, Jasper was left
uninhabitable. It lacked
electricity, water, sewer,
food, fuel, and schools --
and officials estimated
partial recovery would
take three to seven
months. Morris, whose
family was evacuated to
Lafayette, La., didn't want
to place his grandson in a
school for a few months
only to leave it to return to
;Texas at some future date.
SHe chose to.enroll Yuma
in Calvert School. The
home-school curriculum
provider sends families
,daily lesson plans in all
subjects, along with all
;textbooks and supplies, so
parents can become
effective teachers of their


I children. Morris, who'
taught two sons using
'Calvert School more than
30 years ago, knew that
,the home-school course
would remain constant as
the family rebuilds and
relocates in the coming
.months.
Children tend to
flourish in a supportive
.home environment, where
focused, one-on-one


)oling offers stability and success

instruction, coupled with increasingly courting and they know when it 4


flexibility in scheduling,
enables them to learn at
their own pace. They also
tend to perform well in
standardized testing. A
recent study found that
home-school students
score up to 30 points
higher on the Scholastic
Achievement Test (SAT),
and colleges are


homeschoolers because
they are .highly motivated
and self-directed learners.
Halle says the school
hears from parents
throughout the year
concerned about their
child's inability to succeed
educationally. "Parents
want their children to
succeed educationally,
i


isn't happening. In those
situations, home-
schooling can provide an
immediate and effective
solution."

school program, call (888)
