As a result of the Suwannee Democrat
coverage on the code red alert called for the
entire school system a couple of weeks ago,
several family members -- wishing to re- '

Suwannee Primary School at the time. They

The small town of Greenville
became the site for a huge, unfor-
gettable event to honor music leg-
end Ray Charles Feb. 18.
The city of Greenville held a
ceremony to unveil a life-size
bronze statue of Charles in Haffye
Hayes Park located next to US 90
in Greenville, Charles' childhood
home. Dignitaries and several of
Charles' family members attended
the event, along with several
members from North Florida

to Suwannee County Fire/Rescue. Units responded from Dowling Park and Falmouth.
When they arrived at the home located at 18763 104-tn Street, it was already 40 percent
involved. The home belongs to Joan Hollie. She said it is her family home, and she has
lived there off and on all her life. Photo: Janet Schrader


Hollie family home lost to fire


Janet Schrader
Democrat Reporter
"When I saw the black smoke, all I could
think was, oh my God, oh my God," said
Joan Hollie. Hollie's family home burned
Monday, Feb. 20. Hollie was in town on
her day off and saw the smoke as she was
heading home.
The Hollie home is located at 18763
104th Street, locally known as Mattress
Factory Road. According to Hollie, it is the
family home and she's lived in it off and on
her entire life. Hollie said Suwannee Coun-
ty Fire/Rescue told her the fire was proba-
bly caused by faulty electrical wiring. She


said the wiring in the house was old.
"They are telling me it's a total loss,"
Hollie said. "But there might be some stuff
I can save in the front of the house."
When Suwannee County Fire/Rescue ar-
rived at the fire, they said they found a
wood frame structure that was approxi-
mately 40 percent in olh ed. The fiie was
venting from the roof and the windows of,
the east bedrooms, they said. Fire/Rescue
listed the fire damage in its report at 74
percent and the cause of the fire as under
investigation. Fire/Rescue was able to de-
termine that there were no human factors
contributing to th6 fire. The State Fire

paint a ceiling


A builders rarely include cro..'n molding in a new home
these days HIomeov.'ners cart install it themsekei as
c decoran'.e accent or they can paint a border at the
ceiling line as tlhe de_,igner cdios- to do in ihe II.ing
A room, rr,-a.ier bedroom r and ziudy of the hoiue T., pain a
ceiling border in a room of your house:
Prime the ceiling and walls.
Measure the border using a wooden yardstick to ensure a straight
line. Mark the outer edges with a pencil or chalk. (Our living room
border extended two inches onto the ceiling and three inches down
onto the wall. In the master bedroom .and study, the border extended
two inches onto the ceiling and four inches onto the wall.)
Cover the sections of the ceiling and wall adjacent to the border
with plastic tape. (We suggest using a plastic tape designed for painting
racing stripes on automobiles. Unlike paper masking tape, the special
tape will not allow paint to seep beneath its edges. It can be purchased
at well-stocked paint stores or auto supply stores.)
Paint the border in your choice of interior wall paints.
Allow the border to dry, then remove the tape from the ceiling and
walls.
Tape the border for protection while painting the walls and ceiling.
Remove the tape when all walls have dried.

CNHI News Service

The first six weeks of 2006 indicate ethanol
is creeping into the mainstream U.S. fuel mar-
kei. That growth .includes an announcements
by automakers General Motors Corp. and
Ford that they intend to increase their com-
mitment to E85. .Together, GM and Ford,
worki ng with VeraSun Energy a renewable
fuels company ,and fuel retailers, will sup-
port the addition of dozens of E85 stations.
E85 is currently available at 600 stations in
the United States.
"We're expecting an increase of an addi-
tional 2,000 in this year alone," Michelle
Kautz, director of communications for..the
coalition; 'said:
In reponse, the at makers say they'll also
produce 650,000 more E85-compatible cars,
known as flexible-fuel vehicles, in 2006. Sev-
eral domestic-model "flex cars" (which also
can run on regular gasoline) already are on.
the roads. Consumers can find a list of those
at the Web site www.e85fuel.com.
E85 burns cleaner, is biodegradable and
doesn't taint groundw-ater. And, generally, it
does not.cost more than gasoline, which often
contains: just .10 percent ethanol. E85 has
downsides, though.; Mileage can drop 20 to 30
percent per gallon.
The trade-off remains worthwhile, though,
especially if it gives, the nation a cleaner,, less
politically volatile alternative to oil.
President Bush vowed to commit greater re-
sources to ethanol development in his State of.
the. Union address last month. The Energy
Bill, which took effect Jan. 1, offers fuel retail-
ers a 30-percent tax credit up to $30,000 for
the cost of installing E85 pumps. And on Feb.
2, Senators-, Richard Lugar of Indiana and
Tom Harkin of Iowa called for oil companies
to remove logistical obstacles for retail sta-
tions to include E85 pumps alongside those
for regular gas.
Let the momentum continue.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Dear Editor:
A recent letter offered that author's tribute
upon learning from the Democrat's Web site
of the passing of C.G. Howell. From that let-
ter I in turn learned about Howell.
Last year my wife, Susan, arid I met Mr.
and Mrs. Howell at the renovated Royal
Spring. We were instantly charmed by this
gracious couple. As Mrs. Howell gazed on,
smiling, Mr. Howell shared a brief history
of their life in Suwannee County and, lean-


ing on his cane, revealed that his initials,
"C.G." actually stood for CAN'T GO!
What a wonderful man,
John H. Bell

GUEST EDITORIAL

There's no place like home


By Freeman Gallmon, M.Div; Ph.D.,
Haven Hospice Chaplain
Each year, hundreds of thousands of Americans die in
pain without adequate care or attention. Have you ever
wondered who would take care of you if you had a life-
limiting illness?
In our culture, it's a common desire to remain at home
and to. rely heavily on our family and .community for
support and assistance. While care for those with life-,
limiting illnesses can be complicated and require med-
ical expertise, the care does not, have to be provided in
a hospital setting.
Hospice care is available to patients in their own
home, whether that is a private residence or a long-term
care facility. The goal is to provide a family-centered
concept of care with experienced, skilled professionals
who can be trusted to handle your medical needs. Hos-
pice assists patients and families in creating a dignified,
nurturing environment in the place of your choice.
According to the National Hospice and Palliative
Care Organization, 98 percent of the more than one mil-
lion people with life-limiting illnesses that were served
by a 'hospice program in 2004 were cared for in their
own home.
While African Americans suffer, from the highest
mortality rates from cancer and other chronic illnesses,
they represent less than 10 percent of patients who re-
ceive hospice care. This statistic is unnecessarily dispro-
portionate because the African-American community
may not be properly informed by doctors, clergy or sup-
port groups about.the range of options available to help
patients and families cope physically and psychologi-
cally. Haven Hospice, north Florida's leader in end-of-
life and palliative care, does not want anyone to need-
lessly suffer because they did not know about the avail-
able services. To gain a better understanding, let's re-
view some of the myths and truths about hospice ser-
vices:
Myth: Hospice is a place.
Fact: Hospice is a concept, not a specific place of care.
Hospice care usually takes place within the comfort of
your own home, but can be provided in any environ-
ment in which you live, including nursing homes, as-
sisted living facilities, and residential care facilities.
Myth: Hospice is only for people who can accept
death;
Fact: Hospice is a generic term for a unique system of
medical care and support provided for individuals and
their families dealing with a life-limiting illness. Hos-
pice services focus on maximizing quality of life by.ac-
tively and aggressively managing pain and other phys-
ical symptoms, while simultaneously providing emo-
tional and spiritual care for you and your loved ones.
Hospice care is about providing you with choices in
how. you live your life. Hospice care neither prolongs


life nor hastens death. It helps you balance benefits ver-
sus burdens related to the type of care you receive.
Haven Hospice welcomes inquiries from families
who are unsure about their needs and preferences.
Myth: Hospice care is expensive.
Fact: Hospice care is covered by most insurance carri-
ers; including Medicare, Medicaid and private insurers..
If you do not have health insurance, you will still be el-
igible for hospice care. At Haven Hospice, no patient is
turned away based upon their ability to pay for ser-
vices.
Myth: You can't keep your own doctor if you enter'
hospice.
Fact: Hospice care is provided through an interdisci-
plinary team approach, and your primary care doctor is
part of that team. The team also includes the hospice
medical director, registered nurse, licensed social work-
er, aide, volunteer and chaplain.
Myth: Hospice is only for people with cancer.
Fact: More than one fifth of hospice patients nation-
wide have diagnoses other than cancer. Haven Hospice,
provides care for adult and pediatric patients with a
range of life-limiting illnesses, including, but not limit-
ed to cancer, heart disease, stroke, lung disease, liver
disease, kidney disease, multiple sclerosis, ALS,
Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and AIDS.
Myth: You can only access hospice bereavement ser-
vices if your loved one was in hospice care.
Fact: As a family centered concept of care, hospice fo-
cuses as much on the grieving family as it does on the
patient. Haven Hospice also provides grief .services to
the community at large, serving schools, churches and
the workplace.
Not-for-profit Haven Hospice began serving mem-
bers of the community in 1979 as Hospice of North Cen-
tral Florida. The organization was founded because of
the need for better end-of-life care services in our com-
munity. In October 2005, the organization changed its
name to Haven Hospice because it better represents the
mission of the organization-to act as a caring, compas-
sionate and clinically competent HAVEN for residents
of our communities, and their loved ones, when they
are dealing with a life-limiting illness.
Haven Hospice is a not-for-profit hospice network that
serves the following counties in north central Florida:
Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Clay, Columbia, Dixie, Duval,
Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Nassau, Putnam, Union
and Suwannee counties. The end-of-life organization special-
izes in providing a network of services to patients in long-
term care facilities, hospitals, four Haven Hospice care cen-
'ters, or in their own home. Haven Hospice also provides on-
going grief and bereavement support services, pediatric sup-
port programs, home medical equipment and educational
programs for those affected by life-limiting illnesses. For
more information, visit www.havenhospice.org or call toll-
free 800-727-1889.

Bullying

incident her daughter began
fearing school.
"She would leave for
school in tears and come
home crying," the mother
said.
The parents said their
daughter was not -a problem
at school and she made good
grades and previously loved
going to school.
"On the playground three
boys took off their shoe laces,
tied the girls to the monkey
bars and told them if the girls
moved, they would kick
them," the father said.
The day of the incident'the
second grader came home
and told her mother what had
happened, and the next day
the mother went to the school
to speak with the teacher.
The mother said the
teacher had no knowledge of
the. event and told her there
were more than 100 kids on
the playground at one time,
and they couldn't all be
watched. When she asked
the teacher if the boys would
be disciplined and how the
situation would be handled,
the teacher told her she
could not discuss .the
school's disciplinary action
with her, the mother said.
One of the family members
said the grandfather was so
mad the day after the mother
spoke with the teacher that he
called the school telling offi-
cials he might come to the
school with a shotgun to
straighten things out. Accord-
ing to local law enforcement
officials this caused school
officials to declare a code red
alert.
At the time of the code red
alert, School Superintendent
of Administrative Services
Bill Yanossy said the entire
school system was in lock
down for about an. hour, pro-
aibiting anyone from enter-
ing or leaving any campus
grounds and prohibiting stu-
dents from leaving the class-
room until the situation was
declared safe by law enforce-
ment. The alert was declared
for all the schools because of-
ficials were uncertain
whether there were other
children within the family at
other schools, Yanossy said.
At the time of the code red
alert law enforcement offi-
cials said the grandfather did
not attempt to go to the
school, and the matter was re-
solved quickly. Also that day,
the parents went to the school


peaceably to remove their
daughter from the school, the
parents said.
Though the school princi-
pal or assistant principal were
unavailable at the time the
parents came to the school,
the mother said SPS Principal
Marilyn Jones called her later
apologizing and telling her it
would never happen again.
Jones also promised her .the
boys would be dealt with, the
mother said.
At the time of the code red
alert, officials at the School
Board Office would not dis-
close why the alert happened
nor did they mention the bul-
lying even.
Jones, contacted after the
parents talked with the De-
mocrat, said the family's ac-
count of the incident was-
fairly accurate.
She said the incident was a
wake-tip call and, school 'ad-
ministration, teachers and
school resource officers are
working diligently to handle
the situation.
"Not a sole on our staff
would condone this .behavior.
This is unacceptable," Jones
said. "Providing a safe envi-
ronment is imperative for
learning."
Jones said school officials
interviewed the boys several
times to determine what hap-
pened.
"It was a game of cops and
robbers that got out of hand,"
she said.
Jones said the boys are go-
ing through behavior coun-
seling in and out of the class-
room. As a part of character
education teachers are focus-
ing on bullying and intimida-
tion.
Jones said she is. disap-
pointed that only one of the
girls who was tied up came.
forward about the situation.
"We are working on teaching
kids to listen to teachers
Rather than bullies and to
watch out for one another on
the playground by telling :lhe
teacher when something like
this goes on," she said.
Jones said teachers are also
working on developing a re-
cess schedule to prevent hav-
ing too many children on the
playground at one time. They
will also have designated ar-
eas for different classes to
provide more structure, she
said.
"No school is completely
satisfied with its policies but
is constantly working to im-
prove them," she said, em-
phasizing the school's efforts

Cullen; his son Corey Robin-

Other dignitaries sat behind
Charles' family at the ceremo-
ny, including several town of-.
ficials and the statue's sculp-
tors, Bradley Cooley Sr. and
Brad Cooley Jr.
Jim Parrish, who acts as city
manager for Greenville, said
Charles learned to play piano,
from the owner of the Red:
Wing Cafe in Greenville
while growing up.
"Ray Charles pioneered
soul music, -hough there '.as
not any genre of music he did-
n't attempt," Parrish said.
Greenville Mayor -Elesta
Pritchett quoted Charles, who.
said, "Music for me is a ne-
cessity like food and water,, a
part of me like my organs."
Pritchett said Charles tri-
umphed over his disability of
blindness and the color of his
skin through his musical ge-
nius. .
"His talent knew no bound-


fort to address the bullying
and harassment that took
place on the playground.
"If steps we're taking aren't


aries. He was an American
icon who left an indelible
mark on our culture," she said.
Pritchett explained to those
in attendance that she and
Charles were neighbors and
playmates growing up.
"I am 23 days older than he.
This is how close we are in
age," she said.
She said despite his blind-
ness,. Charles would ride the
bus system, and after getting
off the bus he could nake it
home on his own.
"He knew how many cross-
ings he had to cross to get
home," she said.. "He -%ouild
get off the bus in the dark, but
of course it didn't /natter to
.him."
In an interview after the
ceremony,' Pritchett said
Charles would walk from his
house to hers, hitting' his hand
on his leg to make rhythm.
"He had the music in him,"
she said.
In interviewing his family
members at the reception,
Charlei' oldest daughter Eve-
lyn Robinson said she didn't
realize the enormity of who
her father was until she began
noticing how the public react-
ed to his presence.
"When he picked me up
from school everyone would
freak out," she said.


enough to resolve the issue,
we are prepared to bring in
outside counseling and assis-
tance," he said.


Sheila Ray Charles said it
was somewhat difficult being
the daughter of someone so fa-
mous;
"We got to know him as the
public got to know. him," she
said. "It made it hard because
of the love we had for him."
Charles inspired many of
his family members musically,
including three of his daugh-
ters who are vocalists, and his
great grandsonri.
Shelby Robinson 'said when
he visited his great grandfa-'
ther he would entertain the
family by playing the key-
board. Charles taught some of
the family to play and inspired
them toward music, Robinson
said .

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2006 U SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK PAGE 7A


I have a picture of me,
when I was a lass of seven or
eight, wearing my favorite
cowgirl outfit, a red skirt with
matching vest, trimmed with
white fringe, a white western
shirt, sharp-toed boots (none
of those square-toed ones for
this cowgirl), and a white
cowgirl hat atop my blonde
curls. I wanted to be just like
my idol, Miss Dale Evans,
queen of the cowgirls, who.
pinned the most famous of all
cowboy songs ... "Happy
Trails."
Bobbi and Jerry Fenderson,
along with friends and fellow
horse lovers, Beanie and
Wayne Brooks, recently
packed up their horses and
dogs, and headed out for their
own version of the happy
trails experience. The four-
some left the outback for a
three day camping and trail-
riding adventure in Weirs-
dale, where they stayed at
Continental Acres, a beautiful
400-acre, privately-owned
farm. The farm is owned by
Gloria. Austin of Weirsdale,
and it is definitely\ not your
usual farm. Along the farm's
open trails are paddocks that
hold a variety of horses
owned by Austin. Bobbi said
most of the horses are -Euro-
pean bred and imported for
use in team and four-in-hand
carriage driving. Guests en-
joy spectacular views of wa-


terfalls, ponds, and statues of
many different animals as
they ride along the open
fields, winding trails and
rolling hills. The farm even
has a section of wooded trails,
through a citrus grove. Conti-
nental Acres features a first
class Carriage Museum that
houses both American and
European carriages. The
farm's two-legged guests
have their choice of accom-
modations, depending on
how adventurous they feel, of
lovely cottages or open-air
campsites. ,with hook-ups.
And of course.all four legged
guests are treated to, large
turn out areas and first class
stalls, along with, I'm sure,
the best hay and oats that
even Mr. Ed would enjoy.
Bobbi said the week-end
weather was cold and blus-
tery, but everyone had a won-
derful time along the happy
trails.
Bonnie and George Scott
recently enjoyed a tour of Is-
rael and several other differ-
ent areas throughout the Holy
Land. Live Oak's Westwood
Baptist Church offered the
tour through their Education-
al Opportunity Program. It.
was at their son's suggestion
they should go, so Bonnie
and George joined some
members of Westwood. Bap-
tist Church for what can sure-
ly be one of life's greatest ad-


ventures. The tour group left
on Jan. 24 from New York
aboard an ISRAIR jet. Their
adventure began in Tel Aviv,
Israel's capital, and continued
throughout Israel and points
beyond. Bonnie said their
group visited many of the
world's most famous religious
sites, such as. the Church of
the Nativity, the Church of the
Holy Sepulchral, Nazareth,
Jericho, and Tiberias, which
is near the Sea of Galilee.
where Jesus ministered for
three years to the crowds of-
people who followed Him and
where many of His miracles
,where performed. The group
also visited Israel's Holocaist
Museum, and was left with
true visual realization of what
man's inhumanity has done
and, in some parts of the
world, is still doing to their
fellow man. She said they
stayed at a kosher hotel,
-which definitely meant no
pork, or shellfish, and for the
younger tour members among
them ... no cheeseburgers. But
despite the menu. setbacks,
Bonnie said the food was very
good. The group spent seven
marvelous da visitingng man\
sites of the Holy Land. I'm
sure. everyone had a fantabu-
lous time and brought home
many wonderful memories.
Bonnie said she and George
will definitely be going back
for another Holy LandAdven-
ture.
It's that time, when I too
must hit the outback trail ...
remember to keep our troops
and their families in prayer ...
pray for America and her
leaders ... be kind to the way-
faring stranger ... help a
neighbor in need ... and be
sure to tell those you love you
love .them. May the trails of
life you travel be happy trails.

This won't be the first
time Montgomery Gentry
has played the Suwannee
River Jam and wowed fans,
not to mention packed them
in like sardines to see these
non-conformists entertain in
a way only they can. Their
current hit "She Don't Tell
Me To" is,at Np: ,10 on the
Billboard charts. They were
the Country Music Associa-
f tion for the Duo of the Year
in 2000, and also received
that year's American Music
Award for Favorite New
Artist Country. Some of
their other hits include "Hill-
billy Shoes," "Lonely And
Gone," "Daddy Won't Sell
The- Farm," "She Couldn't
Change Me," "My Town,"
"Speed," and "Hell Yeah."
Miranda Lambert, an
Epic Recording artist, just
got her best Christmas ever
when her album, Kerosene,
was certified gold. The al-
bum earned her a number
one Country album on her
first release, but Miranda
wants to do more and more.
She's already one of the top
selling Country Artist of the
year for 2005 and wants to
better that in 2006.
John Anderson, a long-
time favorite with country--
music fans, is known for his


smash hits "Swingin,"
"Money in the Bank" and
"Seminole Wind." John An-
derson has been a favorite of
fans at the JAM and will
certainly bring out his many
fans this year. His presenta-
tion, his voice and the words
to his songs hold wow the
audience and keeps them
coming back for more and
more.
John Berry has one of the
most powerful and4 distinc-
tive .voices in country music.
With multiple gold and plat-
inum albums and nomina-
tions from the Country Mu-
sic Association, the Acade-
my of Country Music, and
. the Grammys, he has clearly
forged an appreciation from
the music industry and fans
alike. Some of John's hits
include "Your Love Amazes
Me," with "She's Taken a
Shine" and "Standing on the
Edge of Goodbye," "If I
Had Any Pride Left At All,".
"Standing On The Edge,"
and "Kiss Me in the Car."
Jason Aldean has made it
to the top with his hit song,
"Hicktown." In the summer
of 2003, Jason was ready to
throw in the towel. But just
weeks later an offer was on
the table, and in January
2004 Jason signed with Bro-
ken Bow Records. Hits like
"Amarillo Sky" and "Why"
followed along with "Hick-
town." Jason is sure to be a

crowd pleaser at the Suwan-
.nee River Jam.
Mel McDaniel's primary
goal in Music City was to
succeed as a songwriter. He's
come a long way since that
time. Mel's "I Thank God
She Isn't Mine," was fol-
lowed by "All The Sweet"
and "Gentle To Your Senses
(Easy on Your Mind)," a top-
20 chartmaker. His second al-
bum, Mello, spawned
"Louisiana Saturdqy Night."
And don't forget Mel's num-,
ber one single "Bab)'s Got
Her Blue Jeans On."
Ray Scott's album, "My
Kind of Music," is a tribute
to his song-writing ability.
He wrote or participated in
writing 13 ;of the songs on
the album. Scott, who has the
Johnny Cash sound, will be
another crowd pleaser this
year at the Jam. Once in
Nashville, Ray cut some
tracks with veteran producers
Norro Wilson and Buddy
Cannon, but a record deal did
not materialize. Then he,
landed a publishing deal with
Tom Collins and had his
songs cut by Randy Travis
("Pray for the Fish") and
Clay Walker ("A Few Ques-
tions"). However, it was his
own song, "Plowboy," that
convinced Warner Bros. to
sign him as an artist.
Cledus T. Judd will be at
the Jam to show his singing
ability and his comedian side.
He'll likely perform some of
his parodies of famous Country
songs, such as "My Crowd" -
a parody of Montgomery Gen-
try's "My Town;" "New Car" -
a parody of Kenny Chesney's
"Big Star,"" and Where's Your
Mommy" a parody of Toby
Keith's "Who's Your Daddy?"

one more announcement to

Freddy Cole in concert at LCCC LakeCitycelebrates Black
T ir 0 A 1 A A f- *


Appearing at the Alfonso
Levy Performing Arts Center
on Friday, Feb. 24, at 7:30
p.m., masterful vocalist and
pianist, Freddy Cole will cap-
tivate listeners with his ele-
gant presence, subtle phras-
ing, and intimate singing
style.
This is the fifth event in
Lake City Community Col-
lege Lyceum Series sponsored
by First Federal Savings Bank
of Florida.
Although he has been
charming audiences in the
states and abroad for over 40
years, Freddy did not find
wider acclaim until the 1990s.
Having a family member al-
ready in the limelight has its
mixed blessings. For much of
his career, Freddy was- over-
shadowed by the larger-than-
life persona and legendary ca-
reer of his brother Nat King
Cole. He had to struggle to
find his own niche in the jazz
world.
Lionel Frederick "Freddy"'
Cole, born Oct. 15, 1931, in
Chicago, Ill., was the fifth
child to bless the harmonious
household of Edward and
Pelina Cole. By the age of
five, under the benevolent
guidance of his father, a min-
ister, and his musically in-
clined mother, he started to
play the family piano.
A natural musician, Freddy
was also a gifted athlete with
professional aspirations.
However, when a high school
sports injury put an end to his
budding football career, he
decided to pursue music, issu-
ing his first recording, "The
Joke's On Me," in 1952.
Freddy continued his music
education, first at Chicago's
Roosevelt Institute, and later
at the Juilliard School of Mu-.
sic in New York. After earning
degrees from Juilliard and the
New England Conservatory
of Music, he hit the thriving
jazz s fie 6f N6fw York City,
taking hate er work he
could find and learning the
ropes from influential men-
tors.
During his formative years


LCCC LYCEUM SERIES CONCERT: Freddy Cole will be in concert in Alfonso Levy Performing Arts
Center on the' LCCC campus at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 24. Photo: Submitted


in New York, Freddy listened
closely to the way horn play-
ers formed phrases in their so-
los and cultivated a sparse,
swinging vocal style that
would become his signature.
In the mid 1970s, Freddy
built an international fan base
with a series of European
recordings. His album, One
More Love Song, went gold
in Brazil. Because his inti-
mate singing style resembled
that of many Brazilian bal-
ladeers, the Brazilians em-
braced him like one of their
own.
Throughout the 1980s,
Freddy continued playing
clubs and inspiring up-and-
coming musicians, but garner-
ing minimal commercial suc-
cess. Finally, his perseverance
paid off when producer Todd
Barkan began working with
him at Fantasy Records.
With Barkan in the booth,
Freddy recorded a series of
stellar CDs throughout the
1990s. With each project,
Freddy's popularity in the
U.S. gained additional mo-
mentum. Barkan also paired


the crooner with other cele-
brated jazz artists such as sax-
ophonist Grover Washington
Jr. and guitarist Russell Mal-
one.
Today, Freddy Cole feels
"blessed" to be doing what he
loves best telling stories
through music, reaching peo-
ple with his exuberant warmth
and inexorable talent. We
should consider ourselves
equally as .fortunate to hear
more from this jazz great with
the panache of Duke Ellington
and a voice like "raw silk."
. I "My brother was a very tal-
ented man and he used his tal-
ents well. I am talented and I
had to learn to use mine. I had
to learn to be strong enough to
withstand a lot of temptation
and not to get beaten down
mentally."
Dinner will be served at the
Lobo Cafe at 6 p.m. before the
performance. Dinner will be
roast beefor chicken marsala,
broccoli, red jacket potatoes,
assorted breads, dessert and
beverage. Cost is $8 including
tax.

World Water Monitoring Day


Ninety-one students partic-
ipated in the first Water Moni-
toring Day at the Suwannee
River State Park recently. Pre-
sentations were given by De-
partment of Environmental
Protection, USGS, Suwannee
River Water Management Dis-
trict, Twin Rivers State Forest,
Gold Kist, Progress Energy
and Karst Divers.
World Water Monitoring
Day was established three
years ago as an international
event to involve the public
with the challenge to clean
water resources. At the event
students participate with staff
from public and private
groups who use and monitor
our water resources.
The Friends of Suwannee
River State Park sponsored
and organized this event and
hope to make it an annual
event at the Park.
Students collected water
samples from Lime Sink Run


that they tested for four prop-
erties. This data will be
recorded on the World Moni-
toring Internet Site and be
available for comparison with
reading in future years at this
event.
The park encompasses
Suwannee, Hamilton and
Madison Counties and stu-
dents from schools in all three
counties were invited. Due to
'increased gas prices many
schools were unable to partic-
ipate. Madison Central, Madi-
son Academy and' Madison
High had the most students in-
volved. They got to do hands-
on projects and have a better
understanding of their role in
water use and responsibility.
The Friends of Suwannee
River State Park provided a
pizza lunch. The help of the
park staff, volunteers, the'
agencies giving presentations
and Lundy's Septic made the
program possible.

Vo-Tech Classes Build Ramp


For Students In Wheelchairs


Suwannee-Hamilton Area Vo-Tech masonry and carpentry
students recently completed a wheelchair ramp at the school to
accommodate handicapped students.
The Vo-Tech hopes to attract those handicapped who would not
otherwise receive a vocational education.
THE MASONRY CLASS ALSO recently completed a brick
veneer project at the Greater Bethel AME church in Live Oak,
one of many such projects that Vo-Tech classes engage in to gain
experience and to benefit non-profit organization.'
Vo-Tech classes often receive telephone calls from residents
who would like them to build fireplaces, patios, barbecue grills


and other things.
Only nron-profit organizations are eligible for free work by the
classes, masonry instructor Henry Stephens related. He said that
he'll be glad to give any information to persons who are planning
masonry projects.
VO-TECH INSTRUCTORS TRY TO GET a variety of jobs for
their students' experience, Stephens said. If the live project
relates to the subject the class is studying, it's much better than
classroom simulation, he said,
The masonry class is presently brick veneering its storeroom
and the Vo-Tech horticulture class storeroom.


Members of the Suwannee-Hamilton Vo-Tech school's (second row) instructor Henry L. Stephens, Charles Jackson,
masonry class who were brick veneering the Greater Bethel Michael Ellis, Joe Clayton, James Jackson, Doug Monroe and
AME church in Live Oak last week are Doug Wilson (first row, 1- Roy Cundiff, Absent were Michael Savitz, Donald Platt, William

Georgia Florida Youth Rodeo



held in Live Oak twice in '06


Janet Schrader
Democrat Reporter
For the second time this year, the Geor-
gia Florida Youth Rodeo has held a rodeo
in Live Oak. The weather was nasty,
windy, cold and pouring down rain, but the
event went off as planned under the lovely
roof of the Bob Holmes Rodeo Arena.


Cowboys and cowgirls competed in all
major rodeo events except rough stock.
The youth Rodeos do not feature bullrid-
ing or bronc riding. There is calf roping,
team roping and chute doggin' along with
break-away roping, barrel racing and pole
bending.
Point-leaders like Whitney Hazouri,
Tyler Byrd, Justin Johnson and Stetson
Aldridge competed for more points to add


to their yearly totals and for the coveted ti-
tle of All Around Cowboy/Cowgirl. Bran-
don Motes currently has a one-point lead
33-32 over Justin Johnson. Whimey Ha-
zouri is up 44 points to her nearest com-
petitor Hannah Thomas with 33.
Look for the Georgia Florida Youth
Rodeo to be back in town at Smitty's
Western Wear Rodeo Arena on March 18-
19.

NFCC looking for a good I W


season of baseball in '06


By Gabe Thompson
This year's Sentinels have
improved drastically after a
sub-par 2005 season. This
year's team includes new
starters and a new assistant
head coach Adrian Dorsey.
"This will be a real oppor-
tunistic season," stated coach
Steve Givens.
After a slow start the team
managed to beat Lake City in
a nail-biting, 8-7 victory.
"Lake City is currently ranked
fourth in the country, and we
will get a chance to play them
again in two weeks," Givens
said.
Givens stressed that the
team has great character and
they work well together. He


stated, "They are a hard work-
ing good group of guys."
The team is now in a devel-
opmental stage. All of the
starting roles have not been
assigned and they are trying to
work out a starting pitching
lineup.
The Sentinels have five
sophomore players this year of
which three played key roles
as freshman and the other two
played moderate rolls. "The
sophomore players have
added leadership to the team,"
stated Givens. "The leap from
high school to college baseball
is a big leap. College baseball
is a lot faster than high school
ball."
Some of the players off to
an impressive start are sopho-


mores Trent Taylor and Mike
Payne and freshman pitcher
Bruce Williams. Outfielder
Trent Taylor has a 4.00 batting
average, and he has 6 RBIs.
Catcher and first baseman
Mike Payne has a 3.68 batting
average with 6 RBIs. Bruce
Williams has pitched three
games, and he has a 1-0 record
with 11 strikeouts and only
one earned run.
With new players and a new
assistant coach, the team looks
to rebound after a record of
20-24 last season. With their
strong play last week over
Lake City, and with sopho-
more leadership, the Sentinels
and their fans should have a
good season to look forward

FWC revises hunting


and


fis


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission's (FWC's) first meet-
ing of 2006 convened under
,the new chairman, Rodney
Barreto, and vice chairman,
David K. Meehan, in
Gainesville. It adjourned af-
ter Commissioners approved
numerous revisions to Flori-
da's hunting and fishing rules.
One of the new rules creat-
ed a crossbow-only hunting
season for private lands to run
five days in the South and
Central zones and seven days
in the Northwest Zone. It also
allows hunters to use cross-
bows on private lands during
statewide muzzleloading gun
seasons and the Northwest
Zone's 11 -day archery/muz-
zleloading gun season.
Other hunting-related new
rules simplify the quota hunt
application process and ac-
commodate., non-hunting fam-
ily members who accompany
hunters on wildlife manage-
ment areas during quota
hunts.
In addition, new rules
broaden wild hog hunting op-
portunities on numerous
wildlife management areas
and expand the annual
statewide alligator harvest
season from five weeks to 10
weeks.
Commissioners also ap-
proved a new statewide snow
goose hunting season and
moved the canvasback duck
hunting season to the last 30
days of waterfowl hunting
season.
In addition, they adopted
new rules for various wildlife
management areas and estab-
lished a definition for measur-
ing total length of freshwater
fish.
Concerning nuisance
wildlife trappers, Commis-
sioners voted to replace per-
mit requirements with a trap-
per registration requirement
and allow airport workers to


thing ru
take wild turkeys from airport
property when aircraft safety
is threatened.
Also, Commissioners
passed revised freshwater
fishing rules for various wa-
ters, established a permit re-
quirement for commercial
harvest of freshwater eels and
voted to prohibit taking alli-
gator gar without a permit.
Regarding marine fisheries
issues, the Commission ap-
proved a rule to protect 13
species of sharks by adding
them to a newly named "pro-
hibited species" list. This list
currently protects nine species
of sharks, rays and sawfishes,
and the FWC is adding the At-
lantic angel shark, bigeye
sixgill shark, bigeye thresher
shark, bignose shark,
Caribbean reef shark, dusky
shark, Galapagos shark,
longfin mako shark, narrow-
tooth shark, night shark, sev-
engill shark, sixgill shark, and
smalltail shark to the list.
This rule takes effect in
March.
Commissioners also agreed
with special fishing regula-
tions developed by the Na-


les
tional Park Service for Dry
Tortugas National Park, in-
cluding establishment of a 46-
square nautical mile Research
Natural Area in the park
where fishing, spearing and
anchoring will be prohibited.
The park regulations also
specify allowable,fishing gear
and other management provi-
sions where fishing is permit-
ted in the park.
In other action, the Com-
mission approved its annual
work plans for five FWC divi-
sions and considered various
federal marine fisheries is-
sues.
The FWC also approved
resolutions, calling for federal
assistance for Florida's com-
mercial marine fisheries,
which were devastated by re-
cent hurricanes, and calling
for a stronger role in multi-
state fisheries councils that
establish rules that affect
Florida.
The next FWC meeting will
be a special session to discuss
the agency's financial plan
Feb. 8 in Tallahassee. The
next regular meeting will take
place in Tallahassee April 5-6.


Hunters to get more

In Gaines\ ille,.the Fl'iidai
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC)

two new wildlife manage-
ment areas to Florida's pub-

North Florida Horse Rescue to sponsor

microchip clinic in Jacksonville


Loca. .qu ..a
o0galui ;Ud to host
equine chip and
database program at
15th Annual Karen Fry
Open Horse Show,
Jacksonville Equestrian
Center
An all-day microchip clinic
targeted to horse owners
throughout northeast Florida
and southeast Georgia will be
held during North Florida Arabi-
an Horse Club's 15th Annual
Karen Fry Open Horse Show on
Saturday, March 11 at the Jack-
sonville Equestrian .Center,
13611 C Normandy Blvd.
The Karen Fry Memorial
Show is dedicated to a young
lady from Middleburg who lost.
her life in a horse accident.
Since 1991, Fry's parents Lau-
rine and Lonnie Fry, have pre-
sented a trophy and six medal-
lions to youth exhibitors who
show good sportsmanship at
club events.
The microchip clinic will be
held during the horse show from
9 a.m.-5 p.m. Cost is $25 per
horse for admission, microchip
and database entry. The general
public is invited to attend the
clinic and horse show at no
charge. For more information
and reservations about mi-
crochipping, call Chris Dunn,
President, North Florida Horse
Rescue at 904-626-1990 or 352-
478-2412. For more information
about the horse show or to re-
serve a stall, call Nancy Pooley
at 904-291-6804.
Horses will be microchipped
by local veterinarians including
Dr. Dawn McLane. The local
vets will work with Dr. John
Wade of AVID Equine and
HORSEtrac. According to Dr.


Wade, AVID stands for Ameri-
can Veterinary Identification
Device. "Avid pioneered the de-
velopment of Radio Frequency
Identification (RFID) for ani-
mals. While HORSEtrac, found-
ed by AVID in the late 80's, is
the recovery network that uti-
lizes the electronic microchip to
help in disasters, theft and to re-
unite horses with their owners,"
he said. AVID. Equine and
HORSEtrac, along with the
original PETtrac global net-
work, established AVID as a
worldwide leader in efficient
databased animal recovery.
"We encourage all horse own-
ers to have their horses mi-
crochipped. This precaution will
help to identify any horse that
may become displaced during
storms and hurricanes," said
Dunn. "The AVID micro chip
can be read by most scanners
worldwide. Plus, it can't be
erased and is guaranteed for
life," she said.
"When the chip is scanned by
law enforcement officials, disas-
ter workers or veterinarians, a
phone call goes into HORSE-
trac, the 24 hour disaster and re-
covery network for horses. The
registered owner information is
immediately available, Howev-
er, it is not a' GPS tracking de-
vice," said Dunn.
The event will be sponsored
by North Florida Horse Rescue
(NFHR), North Florida Arabian
Horse Club (NFAHC), AVID
Equine and HORSEtrac, Raven-
wood Farm and Horsesinthe-
South.com. For more informa-
tion, contact Dunn at 904-626-
1990 or 352-4,78-2412 or visit
www.NorthFloridaHorseRes-
cue.com
North Florida Horse Rescue
(NFHR) is a non-profit and ani-
mal disaster response organiza-


tion that will provide evacuation
.assistance if animals are threat-
ened by any hurricane, fire or
flooding. NFHR educates all
members and volunteers with

Tresa Jordan
Tresa Jordan is a singer strong enough to
wear her heart on her sleek e, even when it's
bruised and broken. That's because she
knows the transformative power of country
music. She knows the greatest songs
resonate because they tap into universal
themes of love and loss, joy and pain. She
knows because she's lived life. She's chased
dreams and dealt with heartache. Writers are
.told to write what they know. Tresa knows
real life.
She also knows music. It's been a part of
her life from the very beginning. She grew
up in a musical family in the small central
Florida town of Melrose.
"My dad was a,drummer," she says.
"When I was little I remember him going
out to play with his band on Friday and
Saturday nights. He had to wear these shirts
with cuff links. When I was really little, I
was asked if I could go sing with him.
When I was about 9 or 10, I actually got to
go sing with my dad. I've got a picture of
me sitting there waiting to go out on stage
to perform for the first time. It was the most
awesome thing."


Tresa Jordan will be appearing at the Bluegrass

Those early experiences
solidified Tresa's desire to
pursue a creative career. She
spent the last two years of
high school studying at the
Florida School of the
Performing Arts, which
required an audition for
admittance. She passed with
flying colors and was
accepted into the prestigious
arts school.
"It was a great experience
for me. Growing up there
weren't that many people
who were into music and the
arts like I was. Going to a
school where that's what
everybody wanted to do was
wonderful."
The creative environment
helped the young singer
flourish and she began
writing her own songs.As her
skills developed, so did her
resolve to make a career as a
country music singer. She
knew that for that to happen
she would have to make the
move to Nashville. At 19, she.
and her best friend, also a
musician, packed their bags
and made the move.
Fame and fortune soon
followed.
No, wait. That's the fairy
tale version. Like the songs
she writes, Tresa's story is
grounded in reality. Once she
moved to Music City, she and
her friend got jobs waiting
tables to .pay the bills while
they honed their craft. Tresa
met another struggling
musician and fell in love.
They were soon married and
began having children. Tresa
put her career on hold to raise
a family.
And they lived happily ever
after.
No, wait. That's the fairy

Wardrobing your home



A unique and accessible approach to home styling


(ARA) What do
embroidery, sequins,
layering, and texture have in
common? They all describe
the hottest trends in women's
fashions and home d6cor. As
the parallel between fashion
and home d6cor narrows,
consumers are buying throw
pillows the same way they
buy shoes -- acquiring
distinctive pieces that update
what they already have to
create a fresh look without
spending a lot of money.
Befitting this trend, home
lifestyle expert Susie Coelho
recently launched Susie
Coelho Style -- a line of
stylish home basics and
decor exclusively at
Mervyns. Coelho, host of
HGTV's hit series "Outer
Spaces" and best-selling
author of "Everyday Styling:
Easy Tips for Home, Garden
-and Entertaining" .and
"Styling for Entertaining,"
takes a unique and accessible
wardrobing approach to
home styling.
"When you have a variety!
of mInoi D -1 bob W /! ';,w;,n i' '3
o home decor' basics Jnd
accesMSories," "refreshing the
look of your home can be a
simple, cost efficient, and
above all, fun process," says
Coelho. "By simply
rearranging the furniture in a
room, using decorative
accessories in a new or
unique way and then buying
a few fresh pieces,


consumers can afford to
keep their homes up-to-date
with the latest home
fashions."
Cultivated from ,her
extensive background in
fashion, home decorating,
gardening, and entertaining,
Coelho shares some'
everyday styling tips to help
you create your own home
decor wardrobe.
Tip Number 1: Examine
your closet
Home d6cor trends follow
women's fashions. By
examining the clothes in
your closet you will not only
get great ideas about what
colors, fabrics, and themes to
look for to freshen up your
home, but you will also find
insight into your own
personal style -- an
important element in home
styling. If your own closet
contains more conservative
pieces, opt for d6cor that
mimics the same classic feel,
like a black and white color
palette with clean lines. If
your taste is more eclectic,
. fabric'..'ji ".te'.Lure- .ind
include' items \ ith unique'
characteristics. To simplify
your choices, try starting
with two colors and use a
third color as an accent. For
a soothing and more
consistent look, try using
tonal variations of one color.
Just like when you dress, too
many colors can often be


busy or without a distinctive
point of view or style.
Tip Number 2: Buy
smart basics
It's important to start with
a foundation of quality home
basics, such as sheets,
towels, and dinnerware, in
several colors as variety.
gives you more options.
Then mix-and-match your
sets or change them
according to your mood, the
type of entertaining you are
doing, or even the season.
Coelho suggests having at
least two to three sets of
dinnerware. One .of the sets
should be cream or white so
you can mix-and-match to
create several different looks
by varying the color palettes
and decorative accents. To
maximize the longevity of
your home basics, consider
how the same item can be
used multiple ways or in
different rooms. Reversible
comforters and pillows are
great because you can just
'flip them over when you are
ready for a change. All of the
C0.lum ltem ,in,, the Susie
'Coelho Style collection are
reversible and were designed
with the idea of change in
mind.
Tip Number 3: Think of
different ways to use what
you already have
Before buying all new
decor for a room, choose a
new color palette and then


search other rooms in your
house for items that can be
used to align with your new
color scheme. Items may
often be used in unexpected
or unique ways. A throw can
serve as decorative table
runner or thrown over a sofa
to mask a tear or a print you
may want to minimize.
Pillows can be switched
from room to room. Don't be
restricted by the fact that you
bought something for one
room as it can easily be used
in a different way in another
room. Keep open to new
possibilities and throw
convention to the wind!
Tip Number 4: Update
with a few new pieces
After you've reworked
your basics and found new
ways- to use. what you
already have in your home,
\\jrdrobe. find a few new
pieces that hiip bring
together your fresh new
look. This could be new
candles.. vases, sheets and a


few pillows for the bedroom,
or an entire new bedding
collection, that will instantly
change the look of your
room. An easy makeover and
done in just a day!
Tip Number 5: Be true to
your personal style
Just like shopping for
clothes, women should keep
their own personal style in
mind when shopping for
home decor. If an item
doesn't complement what
you already have or' just
doesn't excite, you, you'll
end up stowing it.in the back
of the closet, next to the odd-
colored blouse with the tags
still on. it that you bought
fiye years ago. Don't be
afraid to experiment with.
new looks for your home,
but if you get The feeling that
a piece just isn't you or
-\on't mesh with what you
already, have, it's probably
better to leave it on the shelf.
Further extending her
passion for wardrobing the


home, Coelho designed her
new line of bedding and
home d6cor for Mervyns to
offer maximum style,
versatility and affordability
with every piece. "I've had
the opportunity to make over
hundreds of indoor and
outdoor spaces and
understand consumer tastes,
trends, and budgets which
has allowed me to create a
home collection that is
stylish, functional, and a
good value," says Coelho. "I
hope my new collection
inspires people to express
themselves and personalize
their home with these
versatile pieces. They can
start with what they, have
and add unexpected or new
elements to create a look
that is completely their

tale version. And Tresa's life
has been a country song, not
a fairy tale. Less than seven
years later, she found
herself in the same situation
many women find
themselves in. She had three
children, a mortgage and a
marriage going south.
Despite all attempts for her
and her husband to work
things out, their efforts were
failing. She began writing to
deal with complex emotions
of what was ultimately a
divorce and rediscovery-of
herself and her music.
The songs poured out of
her and she began to heal.
She knew that music was


integral to who she was and
had to be a part of her life.
She put her life back
together with a newfound
confidence.
Through it all she kept
writing. The songs kept
getting better and so did her
life. She fell in love again
and married a man who
fully-supported her musical
career.
She began recording
songs about her
experiences, songs about
life. She recorded songs
about the first flush of love
and how it can die. She
chronicled a marriage
falling apart. There were
songs about pushing
through the pain and finding


true love. Songs about
mistakes. Songs
abouttriumphs.

The 10-song disc doesn't
have an electric
instrumentation. That's by
design.
"The sound of acoustic
instruments is so beautiful
and clear," says Tresa. "You
can muddy up songs with a
lot of electrics and a big
production. My songs lend'
themselves to an acoustic
arrangement. They're
organic, raw and natural.
The instruments match the
lyrics."
The songs on Tresa's
debut range from the radio
ready contemporary country
hit "UnderneathThe


Wheels" to the old-school
bluegrass stomp of "Ain't
No Grave." She mixes in
the easy groove and catchy
melody of "Long Time
Comin' Round" with
thenostalgia of "Dancin' On
Daddy's Feet." Her lilting
voice soars on the
heartbreaking ballad
"Angels Cry" and "Hold On
To You," a poignant love
song. But the song that may
captureTresa's essence is "I
Turn To Country." This ode
to a simple, natural way of
life rings with a truth that's
undeniable.
That's because Tresa is
unwavering in her
commitment to write and
record songs about real life.


"I have. to write songs
about things I've
experienced," she says. "I
know some writers can just
come up with an idea and
write it out of thin air. I.
can't do that. It has to be
something that I've been
through or an emotion that
I've dealt with. There has to
be some kind of truthfulness
to a song or it'won't
resonate with people."
Her music will resonate,
with country fans, because'
she's singing their life back,
to them. She's found the
woids and the music to
communicate the trials and
triumphs of ordinary people.
She doesn't sing about
fairytales, she sings about


real life.
And Tresa Jordan knows
real life'.

Cherryholmes


Continued From Page 1C

Fan Fare, Branson,
Dollywood, IBMA Fan Fest,
and countless radio and TV
shows, festivals, and concert
venues throughout the U.S.
In 2004, Cherryholmes
self-released their third CD,
"Bluegrass Vagabonds,"
produced by Darrin Vincent.
This recording has been a
great bluegrass success. They
have continued to receive
many industry nominations
and awards, including
SPBGMA's "Entertaining
Group of the Year, 2005" and
"Banjo Player of the Year,
2005" (Cia Leigh). They are
now signed with Skaggs
Family Records with a new
CD produced by Ben Issacs
of the Issacs Family. This
excellent recording is
scheduled for release in
September, 2005.


They have performed on
many radio and television
shows throughout the country
and will be performing at
many major bluegrass
festivals throughout the
United States in 2004,
including their own new
festival at the Hoofer's
Gospel Barn in La Grange,
GA. _
Since emerging on the
national bluegrass scene,
Cherryholmes has thrilled
audiences from coast to
coast. Bringing crowds to
their feet at nearly every
performance, driving it hard
and serving it straight up,
they are "The Real Deal."
Jere (Pop) is father, leader,
manager, and emcee for the
Cherryholmes Family. He
plays the upright bass-hard
and fast, sensitive and
smooth, while singing lead
with a "rough around the


edges" old country style. His
talent as an arranger has been
important in preserving the
band's traditional style. Jere
was featured in the October
issue of Bluegrass Now.
Sandy Lee (Mom) plays a
hard-hitting mandolin style
and driving rhythm that keep
the band's momentum going.
For special numbers, she
switches to the clawhammer
banjo. She is the most
versatile singer in the band.
From hard hitting bluegrass
gospel to old-time mountain
and country tunes, she does it
all. Her yodeling is a real
crowd pleaser. Sandy is also a
great harmony singer and
song writer.
Cia Leigh began the band
on the guitar in 1999 at age
15. In October of 2000,
however, she switched to the
banjo. Influenced by the
styles of J.D. Crowe, Don


Reno and Jim Mills, she has
developed a fast, powerful
style of her own. Her banjo
plays a major role in the
band's hard driving style.
Receiving the award for
SPBGMA Banjo Player of
the Year for 2005 evidences
her abilities as a musician.
Cia is quickly moving to the
top as a vocalist as well.
Singing harmony, she shines
on tenor and high baritone.
Her voice has been featured
on several projects with
artists such as Doyle Lawson,
J.D. Crowe, Paul Williams,
Ben Isaacs, and Alecia
Nugent.
B.J. began playing fiddle in
1999 at age 11 and has
amazed all of those who have
watched him over the years.
His fiddling adds an
excitement to the music not
possible by most young
musicians. He has been


compared to such stellar
fiddlers as Stuart Duncan and
Aubrey Haney, and has
performed with some of
bluegrass's finest. He is also
featured on Rhonda Vincent's
new live concert DVD and
CD, "Ragin' Live." B.J. is
also coming into his own as a
fine young vocalist adding,
- lead and harmony vocals for
the group.
Skip began playing
mandolin in the band in 1999
at age 9. But in November of
2000, he was asked to take
over on the guitar. In only a
few months he was playing
rhythm and flat-picking.
Nicknamed "Smiling Skip,"
this six foot tall Hank
Williams look-a-like charms
the audience with his guitar
picking, singing, and
showmanship. Skip is an
excellent picker, but it is his
aggressive rhythm, style that


characterizes the
Cherryholmes drive and
energy. Skip's feature article
for Flat-Picking Guitar
Magazine can be found in the
June/July issue.
Molly Kate began playing
in 1999 at age 6.This young,
left-handed fiddler's
aggressive, soulful style
earned her an IBMA
nomination for Fiddler of the
Year, 2004, and a SPBGMA
nomination for Fiddler of the
Year, 2005. She has
performed with Rhonda many
times and appears on
Rhonda's new concert DVD
and CD "Ragin' Live,"
performing "Frankie Belle"
and other selected tunes.
Molly has a beautiful voice
and adds her lead and
harmony vocals to the
Cherryholmes versatile vocal
structure.

'Fake Baking' is a

cancer threat
Vacations to tropical locales are all the rage during winter months. Residents of snow-covered areas seek the
relief and refuge of sandy beaches and warm ocean waters. High school and college students frequent Caribbean
resorts during school recesses or family trips.
When packing for warm-weather destinations, most remember the.requisite bathing suit, beach towel and sandals,
among other necessities. However, many are now bringing along something else on their winter getaways that has a
potential health threat a golden hue, courtesy of the local tanning salon.
In recent years, tanning salons have experienced a boom in business, particularly among adolescents. According
to Dr. Joshua Fox, dermatologist and spokesperson for the American Academy of Dermatology, frequenting tanning
salons has become a new trend for the younger generation. He reports that at least 10 percent of teenagers used a
tanning salon in 2004. Most visit the salon before weddings, school photos, and vacations, all in an effort to have
what is perceived to be a healthy glow. Many teens fail to realize that tanning beds are as if not more dangerous
than tanning in the traditional sense.
TANNING BED THREATS
Just like the sun, tanning beds give off UV radiation. Components of UV radiation include UVA, UVB and UVC.
UVB is considered the most harmful and is the culprit most recognized fr causing cancer. Melanin, a pigment made
by the slin, protects the skin by absorbing UV radiation. Darker-skinrined people are less likely o1 suffer the cancerous
effects of tanning beds than light-skinned individuals Yet either way. there is the risk.
Tanning beds are especially dangerous to teenagers, as their skin is experiencing rapid cellular activity. The
powerful UV rays from the tanning beds can affect the skin, causing it to thin and be less likely to heal properly.
Tanning beds can also compound the effects of prior sun damage, leading to a greater risk for various types of skin
cancer, including malignant melanoma. It can take 10 to 30 years for melanoma to develop, so many don't realize the
health risks until it is too late and years of skin damage have been experienced.
Other risks with tanning beds involve teens who are using acne medications such as Tetracyclioe. The UV rays
can read with the medications, causing photosensitive'conditions like skin blisters.
LAWMAKERS TAKE ACTION
Many states are now mandating that adolescents have parental permission before visiting a tanning salon. Such is
the case in California, where Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed such a bill into law. In Suffolk County, New
York, anyone under 14 is banned from using tanning beds, and teens ages 14 to 18 ust be accompanied by a
parent. In Nassau County, New York, lawmakers want signed parental approval or an accompanying parent before
teens can frequent tanning salons. Other states have similar proposals awaiting approval. These laws make parents
personally responsible for the welfare of their children. The idea is to make guardians realize that tanning presents a
health or even death threat, and it should be taken just as seriously as the topics of promiscuous sex, drug use or
drinking.
Dermatologists and others want people to be more familiar with the risks associated with tanning bed use. Right
now, there are warning statements posted on most beds, but they are long and involved, and most tanning bed users
don't even read them over. W. Howard Cyr, Ph.D., of the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health, wants to
change these warning statements to bulleted text, which is easier to read, so more tanners will be in the know.
GOLDEN ALTERNATIVES
Avoiding the sun and tanning beds does not mean the paler members of society need to spend their lives with
pasty white skin. There are other, safer alternatives. Many salons and spas offer spray-tan services, where an FDA-
approved colorant is sprayed on the skin to mimic the glow of a natural tan. The color will last anywhere from a few
days to a week. Do-it-yourself lotions, creams and sprays are also available at retail stores. Tanning pills, which
contain color additives, are also available. But these pills may cause side effects, like impaired vision, so their use is
discouraged. Cosmetic companies also sell a variety of bronzers and other powders, which can be dusted onto the,
face and body.
For more information on the risks of tanning, visit the National Cancer Institute's Web site at www.cancer.gov.

Mrs. Collins, Spirituafist
Healer, 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.

Tips for safely sharing a bed with baby


(ARA) Of the many
philosophical debates in
the world of infant care,
few are as combustible as
whether or not parents
should share a bed co-
sleep with their babies.
Co-sleeping critics
warn of dire
consequences, from an
increased risk-of SIDS to
difficulty in learning to
sleep independently later
in life. But an increasing
body of research
supports what many
Eastern cultures have
believed for generations:
Sleeping with your baby
can be safe and beneficial
for both parents and
child.
Despite institutional
and social pressure to put
babies to sleep by
themselves, studies show
that at least 50 percent of
all American parents co-
sleep with their infants at
some point. Research by
'Dr. James J. McKenna
and his team at the
Mother-Baby Behavioral
Sleep Laboratory at the
University of Notre
Dame indicates that not
only can co-sleeping be
done safely; it can
actually help reduce the
risk of SIDS and other
sleep-related problems.
"Co-sleeping infants
nurse more often, sleep
more lightly and have
practice responding to
maternal arousals,"
McKenna reports.
"Arousal deficiencies are!
suspected in some SIDS
deaths, and long periods
in deep sleep may
exacerbate this problem."
Further, co-sleeping
makes it easier for a
mother to know and
respond when her child is
in trouble, he says.
McKenna's research
shows that co-sleeping is
not just a question of
convenience for
breastfeeding mothers.
To safely co-sleep with
your baby, consider the
following guidelines:
Always follow the
American Academy of
Pediatrics'
recommendation to put
all babies to sleep on their
backs. It is the safest
sleeping position for
young babies, regardless
of where they sleep.
Never drink, take
drugs or use prescription
medications that cause
drowsiness if you are co-
sleeping with your infant.
One of the major benefits
of co-sleeping is the
parents' ability to rouse
and respond to the baby.
Alcohol, drugs and some
medications will impair
your ability to wake up if
needed.
Always leave your
baby's head uncovered
while sleeping. Consider
putting him or her in a


"sleep sack," rather than
using a conventional
blanket that may work its
way over the baby's head
during the night.
Make sure you use the
proper bedding and that
your mattress fits snugly
to. the bed frame and
head board. There should
be no gaps into which a


baby might slide. Forgo
pillows, comforters, quilts
or other soft or plush
items on the bed.
Never place a baby to
sleep in an adult bed
alone.
Consider using a Co-
Sleeper' Bassinet, a small,
separate bed with one
open side that fits up
against your bed. Arms


Reach produces a
number of co-sleeping
products that give
mothers easy access to
their babies, while
keeping the infant in his
or her own space. They
provide the convenience
of co-sleeping without
the risk of a sleeping
adult rolling over on the
baby.'


Don't place your bed
or the baby's Co-Sleeper
Bassinet near draperies or
blinds where your child
could be strangled 'by
cords.
