Commission

approves

tax abatement

for prospective

business

Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
The Suwannee County
Commission discussed the tax
abatement issue at length this
week before agreeing to give
a chicken manure processing
plant, a 60/40 tax abatement
break if the company decides
to locate here.
The company cannot give
any commitment to anyone
until it's met many different
requirements with the state to
get incentive grants and start-
up assistance. Those applica-
tions are still in the process,,
and the company hasn't made
any commitments at this time.
It could even locate in another
state, many which are trying
to get the business.
If the plant does locate to
Suwannee County, it would be
located off SR 51 on 80 acres
of property the Suwannee
County Development Authori-
ty has an option on at this
time.
Because of the nature of the
business, it would be regulat-
ed by the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection.
Suwannee County Econom-
ic Alliance Pre.sident Dennis -
Cason, yho brought the issue

and camping on the land and will,
install an office, ticket booth, re-


'strooms and an area for spectators.
The plan %\ ill call for a septic, wa-

The Golightlys' son, William

racing and 40 acres for open rid-
ing between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

where they were challenged
physically and mentally. After
putting their lawn mowers in
gear, drivers hopped off as
fast as they could and did 10
jumping jacks. Second, they
observed priced grocery items
and determined whether the
prices were higher or lower
than tagged. Third, they
counted out and, filled up a
roll of nickels. Finally, they
hammered in a nail, all before
getting back on the lawn
mower to finish the lap.
Of course, before it was all
over with, racers were taking
their opponents' ignition keys,
all in the name of fun. .
To rev up the challenge
even more, winners from each
race had to hop back on their
lawn mowers, this time with a
cup of water, to compete for
the championship. ,Not only
did participants have to race
with the cups but also endure
the pit stop challenge without
spilling them.
Winners in the individual
division were Don Wain-
wright racing for Edward's In-
surance Agency, Billy
Maxwell racing for the
Suwannee County Board of
County Commissioners,
Richard Mitchell racing for
WB Howland and Lee Tray-
wick racing for Florida Power
and Light Company. Winning
the water championship for
the individual division was


Richard Mitchell.
Winners in the team divi-
sion were Worth Construction
and Development and Hamil-
ton County Roughriders. Win-
ning the water championship
for the team division was
Worth Construction.
After everyone surrendered
their keys, prizes and a draw-
ing followed. All race partici-
pants were given T-shirts and
certificates. The champi-
onship winners were given
trophies. The Rev. Leroy
Dobbs from Philadelphia
Baptist Church was awarded a
prize for the individual who.
raised the most money. First
Federal Savings Bank team
members were awarded a
prize for the team who raised
the 'fint money Wal-Mart,
First Federal, Worth Con-
struction and Development
and Suwannee Health and Fit-
ness were \ awarded plaques
for sponsoring a pit stop chal-
lenge, a donation of $500 or
more. A special plaque was
awarded to John's Lawn
Equipment for providing lawn
mowers for the event. Several
participants and spectators
were also awarded prizes in a
drawing.
Individuals and businesses
who participated in the race
raised a minimum of $100
through sponsorship for CCS.
Teams raised a minimum of
$250.

the wet weather forecast.
"We had a lot of spectators
and family members of clients
this year," he said.
Lake said because they were
able to use the cane grinding
area at Spirit of the Suwannee
for the pit stop challenge, it
provided for more commentary
by WLVO who broadcasted the
event.
CCS raised about $6,500 at
the event. The funds will be
used to provide training to help
clients develop job skills.
CCS's goal is to link clients,

come valuable employees, with
businesses, for a win-win part-

COMMENTARY

Floridians tax burden growing
Driven.by increased spending and growing property val-
ues, Floridians state tax burden has risen to its highest lev-
el in 18 years. That's the finding of "How Florida Com-
pares," the Florida TaxWatch annual comparison of state
and local taxes in Florida and the nation. The report also
notes that Florida's top gas tax rate remains the highest in
the nation.
The increased tax burden is not from new or increased
taxes, but rather an increase in tax collections that have
grown faster than most other states. The report notes that a
stronger economy has produced robust tax growth.
"Our tax burden is greater, despite the fact that there have
(been no state tax increases and even some tax cuts," said
Dominic M. Calabro, president and CEO of the non-profit
state government watchdog group. "Greater consumer
spending and increased' real estate values have generated
more tax dollars than ever before in Florida, outpacing the
nation, and thus placing a greater tax burden proportionally
on Floridians," said Calabro.
In 2004, the latest figures available for the TaxWatch re-
port, Florida's tax collections grew 12 percent, compared to
8 percent nationally. From 2000-2004, state tax collections
grew 24 percent, the third largest growth in the nation, com-
'pared to national growth i for the period of 10 percent.
Florida's state tax burden per person is 35th in the nation,
up five spots from the year before, and the highest since
1988. Adding local taxes, the state and local tax burden rose
three spots to 32nd highest in the nation.
But because the tax growth has been coupled with in-
creasing income, Florida's state tax burden expressed as a
percentage of personal income is 38th in the nation, up four
spots from the year before. Adding local taxes from 2003
estimates, the combined state and local'tax burden ranking
was 44th, up one spot. The report notes that ranking would
likely be higher, if mrne recent local data were'available.
While .Flrida 4es not have a personal income. ta\, it re-
lies heavily on transaction taxes, and Florida's sales tax bur-
deri is third highest now in the country, up three spots from
the year before. Also some counties in Florida have the
highest combined state and local gas tax rate in the nation.
Florida's housing sector has also produced a lot of rev-
enue for the state. Documentary stamp and real estate trans-
fer taxes 'per person, already the nation's highest, rose an-
other 28 percent in 2004, due mostly to increased loans for
home purchases, according to the TaxWatch report.
The report also notes that businesses pay 48 percent of all
state and local taxes in Florida, the 13th highest percentage
in the nation, and higher than the national average of 43 per-
cent.
What's next?
While the Florida Legislature has been holding the line
on taxes and has even cut taxes in recent years, local tax
collections have been growing rapidly. Fueled by skyrock-
eting property values, property tax collections have risen 46
percent from 2001 to 2005, including double-digit growth
the last two years. Without data from other states it is hard
to make comparisons, but it is likely that Florida's local and
combined state and local rankings for 2004 would be high-
er than what is in this report. Coupled with estimated state
general revenue growth of 9.2 percent in 2004, 14.4 percent
in 2005 and 5.8 percent in 2006, it appears that Florida's tax
ranking climb is not quite over.

The 'business owners pro-
ject having 50 vehicles com-
ing on the weekdays and 100
on the weekends. The busi-
ness will allow 40 riders on
the track at one time, with
timed sessions.
Following William Golight-
ly's presentation was a debate
full of emotion by participants
with concerns, for and against
the track. Several neighbors
adjoining the property ex-
pressed concerns about the
noise level.
William Golightly said the
ATVs will not exceed 98 deci-
bels, in conjunction with cur-
rent regulations. Referring to
a study he brought before the
Board, he predicted from 1/4
of a mile away the noise level
will be like hearing a faint
train or dogs barking.
"You will be able to hear
the ATVs but they won't be
loud," he said.
"You are comparing this
sound to momentary trains or
dogs barking," said Leon Gill,
who lives about 3/4 of a mile
away from the Golightlys'
property. "How can you com-
pare it with 40 motorcycles
roaring at one time? And this
will be open 12 hours a day,
seven days a week?"
"I really cherish the.quiet,


solitude and beauty that sur-
rounds me," said Grace Marie
Bartley who owns property
adjoining the Golightlys. "It
will have a grossly negative
effect on our living condi-
tions."
Bartley and her husband,
Charlie Bartley, spoke out ex-
tensively about the issue and
presented the 'Board a map
outlining the numerous areas
that would be impacted by the
track. The Bartleys' live in
Gainesville but visit their
property regularly and plan to
retire there in about five
years. The edge of their prop-
erty is about 1/4 of a mile
from the business site. .
Other issues brought up by
several neighbors were
whether the track would cause
adjoining property value to
decrease, how the business
would monitor ATVs tres-
passing on adjoining proper-
ties, whether the increased
traffic would produce signifi-
cant wear and tear on sur-
rounding dirt roads, whether
underage drinking would be
policed and how the business
would attend to riders getting
injured.
William Golightly said
fencing would be 'installed
around the property to prevent
trespassing and dirt mounds
with trees and shrubbery

the plant will employ 57 peo-
ple in the first phase and 57
more during the second phase,
all at salaries Cason said
would be in the $29,000 a year
range.
In giving the Commission
figures of economic impact to
the county, Cason said the
plant would be a $32 million
venture. Commissioner Randy
Hatch and Chairman Ivie
Fowler challenged Cason on
this figure, pointing out that
the paperIA.ork prou ided by
Cason to th'e 'board showed a
$12 million facility. "These
are new figures!" Cason


replied. Cason was told to
make -sure these figures were
corrected.
During the public hearing
portion of the item, Dick
Calvitt, a local real estate
agent and banker, suggested a
larger abatement may be need-
ed, while Jim Ward said he
wasn't a fan of tax abatements
and said the process for luring
new businesses was out. of
control, and pitted one state
against another.

would be installed as sound
buffers. Though drinking will
be allowed, he said it will be
monitored and underage
drinking will be prohibited.
He said the business will have
EMS on site during races and
will also have medically
trained staff to assist with in-
juries.
The Golightlys reiterated
that a family atmosphere
would be implemented. They
said riders will be required to
have safety gear, including a
helmet and children should be
monitored by parents. The
Golightlys said they will also
have liability insurance for
potential injuries
"There is no place for young
people to go for recreation and
this will provide an organized
sport to do," William Golight-
ly said. "I think this setup will
limit injuries of unsupervised,
children and deaths on the
highways and prevent riders
from trespassing on private
'property and riding illegally
on public property."
Several families who are in-


volved in the sport explained
the opportunities it provides
for family time, exercise and
fun. Also mentioned was that
many of them currently must
travel to Gainesville for the
sport, spending several thou-
sands of dollars they say could
be generated in Suwannee
County.
The Bartleys said they are
all for youth having an area
for recreation but did not want
it close to their property.
"If we can't put this out in
the middle of nowhere, I don't
know where we can put it,"
Enola Golightly said.
Board member Gary Martin
moved to amend the resolu-
tion to restrict the business to
operating during daylight
'*hours only, not exceeding 8
p.m. to avoid the issue of dan-
gerous riding in the dark by
some ATVs that may not have
lights..
Martin also moved to en-
force the Golightlys to make a
good faith agreement that the
noise level will not exceed the
level promised in the agree-

Treatment for Hypothyroidism
Hypothyroidism is a condition caused by under secretion of thyroid
hormone from the thyroid gland. Most commonly, symptoms include
coarse skin and hair, cold and dry skin, puffiness around the eyes, and
slow heart rate. Risk factors for hypothyroidism include being over 50
years old, female gender, obesity, and exposure of the neck to radiation.
Confirmation of the condition is determined by a physician.
Currently, the drug of choice for treating hypothyroidism is
levothyroxine. Starting doses of this drug vary due to a person's age and
cardiac disease status. Once started on levothyroxine therapy, individu-
als with this condition should be re-evaluated every 6 weeks until they
are stable. Changes in the dose of levothyroxine are based on blood
tests performed-at the doctor's office. As patients age, the dose of
levothyroxine needed ma., ,dcC -. so i i' imporuLnt t tecci. e regular

All neighbors within 300
feet from the business site
were notified by the Zoning
Department about the track
plans.
The track will have a $10
fee at the door with additional
fees for racing. Organized
races will be scheduled
monthly.
William Golightly said in
an interview later they plan to
have the business open within
90 days, provided everything
goes as planned.


"We're currently working
on construction and cleanup,"
he said.
"William has been riding
since he was 6 months old,"
Enola Golightly said in an in-

Q: Why do dentists take X-rays?
A. Dentists take X-rays to supplement, the
visual examination of your mouth. X-rays can
reveal conditions under the gums. Bone loss,
for instance, will be visible on an X-ray.
During a first visit your dentist is likely to take
at least two different types of X-rays. They
are known as periapical and bitewing.
Periapical X-rays for adults are about one
and a quarter by one and three-quarters
inches. They show complete side views of
about four teeth, from the roots to the tops of
the crowns. Bitewing films are about the
same size, but show only the crowns and
parts of the roots of two or three pair of
opposing teeth. Bitewing films are the more
common, used for periodic checkups and
normally taken once every 18 months.
Periapical X-rays are usually taken when
needed for a specific diagnosis. Otherwise a
full set is recommended every three to five
years. X-ray films, also called radiographs,
can be developed in a few minutes and
displayed on a backlit board for viewing. Ask
your dentist to explain the techniques and his
reasons for using X-rays to examine your
teeth and mouth.

A fastest and least expensive ways to brighten a room:
* Using a wooden yardstick for guidance, lightly draw the
headboard on the wall. This one was 45 inches wide and 42 inches
high -- just right for a child's twin bed. The two outer bands of
color extended down to the floor, while the two inner colors
formed rectangles.
* Outline each section with plastic tape.
* Paint the outer band first and outer rectangle second. (We used
a flat, interior wall paint.)
* Allow these sections to dry and remove the tape surrounding
them.
* Outline the other two sections with tape, then paint them.
We used four bright colors to paint the headboard, but other
interesting effects can also be achieved with two alternating colors
or with increasingly darker shades of the same color. One of the
best characteristics of the headboard is that it may be adapted to
any existing color scheme and to any child's favorite colors!

District as a bus aide for ESE children. Each school day for
the past 17 years Lemnah has picked up her ESE student
in Branford and met the school bus that takes the student to
Greenwood School for ESE students in Hamilton County,
some 45 miles away. While enroute and returning home
each day, Lemnah cares for her students. While at Green-
wood, she spends the remainder of her day working with
students at this special needs school. When the school day
ends, Lemnah gets her student back on the bus, rides back
to Branford some 45 miles away and once in Branford,
transports the student back home before Lemnah's day
ends.
Lemnah's immediate supervisor, Scott Pfender, notes in his rec-
ommendation of Lemnah that she is dependable, compassionate
and dedicated and rarely misses work, having only used four
hours of sick leave this entire school year. Pfender says his entire
department depends on her commitment.
The student who rides the school bus Lemnah transports each
school day nominated Lemnah for this honor.
During her time employed with the District, Lemnah has
sought and received extra training to assist her in her job.
For any employee to stay 17 years on a job where you must get
up early and stay long hours on the job in order to make sure a
special needs student is given every chance to succeed as much as
he or she can and that the student is well cared for and safely
transported each day, is a call above and beyond the call of duty.
Lemnah truly exemplifies the honor being bestowed upon her
as Suwannee County School District School Related Employee of
the Year. She had earned the love of her students, the respect of
her peers, family and community and demonstrates exemplary
skills in her job.
Other School Related Employees of the Year are as follows:
Branford Elementary School Anthony Jackson
Branford High School Linda Cannon

Anthony Jackson Jackson, a McAlpin resident, has been em-
ploy ed by the District for the past 15 years and hats been at Bran-
ford Elementar-. School for the past six
years as its custodian. Jackson is described
as an exceptional employee who completes
his work in a timely manner and is aware of
the needs of others with a very helpful atti-
tude. BES Principal David Campbell de-
scribes Jackson as "always courteous and
friendly and adds professionalism to his
tasks that is rare nowadays." BES book-
keeper Mary Roberts said Jackson is a "pos-
itive influence and encouragement to the Anthony Jackson
students and his peers" and always offers a
helping hand.
Linda R. Cannon Cannon, aBranford resident, is employed
at Branford High School % here she has served as the school sec-
retary for the past 30 years. BHS Principal Ted Roush states that
he's known her since he was in the third grade and she's the same
now as then friendly, warm, caring, and a lot of fun to be around.


Roush said Cannon is the only person he
knows who."can take care of an office full of
people, answer the telephone, make an an-
nouncement on the intercom, call a student
from class, remember to deliver a home-
made snack to the boss and never break
stride in her efficiency!" And, he says, she
does it all without ever losing her cool! :.' '..
Robin M. Pfender Pfender, a Live Oak
resident, has been employed at the District
office in Live Oak as payroll clerk for the Linda R. Cannon
past two- and one-half years. According to
her supervisor, District Director of Business Rick Norris, Pfender
developed procedures to simplify the monthly reconciliation of
more than 750 employees and greatly im-
proved the accuracy. She quickly learned
-F how to do her job and can now handle intri-
cate jobs by herself, accomplishing each as-
signment timely and accurately. Payroll Su-
f 4 supervisor Kathleen M. Robinson attests to
Pfender's expertise. "She has done an exem-
plary job on all tasks put before her and has
a willingness and desire to learn new things.
Robin has a positive attitude and likable
personality which makes her a pleasure to
Robin Pfender work with."
Imelda Jaramillo A Live Oak resident, Jaramillo works at
Douglass Center as a Pre-K interpreter/parent liaison. She's trained

This month's "welcome to
the neighborhood" goes to
Refuge Pentecostal Taber-
nacle, located at 12280 CR
137 on property that was
once home to Wellborn
Baptist Church. As most
everyone knows, a fire on
Dec. 19, 1999 destroyed the
sanctuary of Wellborn Bap-
tist, leaving only the build-
ings that housed the'
church's office and Sunday
school rooms, and fellow-
ship hall standing, all left
miraculously unscathed by
the fire. Wellborn Baptist
sold the land to a local busi-
ness man and rebuilt its new
church along US 90 on land
donated by Ruth Mizell and
her brother, Eddie Joe
McLeran. And now, as Paul
Harvey would say, here's
the rest of the story...
From the ashes of a rag-
ing fire ... God's spirit
flowed down, anointing
Pastor Darin Wilson, a
young minister from Live
Oak, who started an in-
home ministry for his fami-
ly in April of 2004. From
the beginnings of that home
ministry Refuge Pentecostal
Tabernacle grew, and.is now
a much welcomed member
of the Wellborn outback
community. After purchas-
ing the property, church
members set about the task
at hand. 'The old Sunday
school building has been
renovated into a beautiful,
spacious sanctuary, and the


fellowship .hall is once
again filled with the sounds
of joyous gatherings. Over
100 guests helped church
members celebrate the dedi-
cation of their new sanctu-
ary on Nov. 4, 2005. Pastor
Wilson and his wife, De-
laina, have purchased the
house that once served as
the parsonage for the previ-
ous church's minister,
which makes it convenient
because the two properties
are joined. The couple are
expecting their fifth child, a
son. That will give the Wil-
son family three boys and
two girls. Little brother will
join sisters, Kayla, 8, and
Kenzie, 2, and brothers, Jar-
rett, 5,-and Justin, who just
recently celebrated his
fourth birthday. 1 know the
yet-to-arrive baby's name,
but I'll never tell, at least
not until his arrival some-
time in March, and that's
just around the corner. Days
and hours for church ser-
vices are listed in the
Church Directory of the
Suwannee Democrat's
week-end edition published
on Friday, or for more in-
formation, call 386-688-

41y
4-


By Fred Hughes
Greg McDonald of thd Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch near Live
Oak is the official watermelon eating champion of Suwannee
County for 1976.
AN ESTIMATED 100 youngsters, strung out in a long line, sank
their teeth into quarters of watermelons Saturday afternoon at
the Suwannee County Coliseum where the 'melon eating title was
at stake.
Amid the shouting and screaming, it soon became apparent
that many onlookers were concentrating on 12-year-old
McDonald, about mid-way in the line.
WITHIN FIVE MINUTES, IT was all over. "I'm sick,"
McDonald declared. Off he went to the restroom. Earlier he'
indicated he was going to enter the pie eating contest, but after
he returned from the restroom, he withdrew his intentions. \
. Second place winner was David Anderson. Third place winner
was Scott Robinson.

Bicentennial's Best
By Frank Dorman
Evelyn Peppers, Howard Wright and Johni Cannon were
caught with their mouths full Saturday afternoon in the
Suwannee County Agriculture Center conference room. They 1-
were judges in the Suwannee County Bicentennial pie eating
contest, one of the final events in a hectic day of Third of July
activities.
THE TRIO OF TASTE TESTERS sampled 12 apple pies and
decided unanimously that Pam Hicks of McAlpin should be
declared the winner. McAlpin's Mary Cheshire's apple entry was .


judged second in the show and O'Brien's Dorothy McCall was
ranked third tastiest.
A crowded room of spectators anxiously awaited the final
decision as many of them would soon get a chance to try the pies
themselves when the bicentennial pie eating contest started.'

Open Egg Toss Has


Contestants Moving.

By Frank Dormap
Some 110 children of all ages participated in the Open Egg Toss
with what eggs remained after the city council-county
commission egg throw Saturday afternoon on the west lawn of
the Suwannee County Coliseum grounds.
Young and old alike had a whale of a good time but only six of
the entrants were able to claim the three red, white and blue
trophies when it was all over. Todd Lawrence and Bill Bozeman'
took first place honors for keeping an egg in motion the longest
while increasing the distance between them.
MARK AND BO DAVIS FINISHED the competition in second
place for the second greatest distance.' Paul Schneider and
Barney Wainwright ended their throw in third place. Lions Club
members from county clubs had a rough time keeping track of
who's egg was broken and .who's wasn't but they did an
admirable job of picking the winners.


Boys Ranch, had to eat all the red from his rind before beHig
declared the winner.'



Adults In The Bag


For Sack Racing.

By Frank Dorman ,
The adults probably had more fun Saturday afternoon, July 3,
as they participated with vim and vigor, matching the
youngsters in every bicentennial event.
The Live Oak Junior Woman's Club sponsored the adult sack
race with Sally Goff as chairman. Helping her were Joan
Roberson, Nancy Croft, Debby and Claude Goff, Barbara and
Avery Davis, Diane and Calvin Palmer, Penny McKnight, and
Gail Langford.
THERE WAS ONLY ONE HEAT IN this exciting event and.
Kelvin Roberson was the first person to cross the finish line. The
crowd could still smell burlap as Ednell Newbern and Lawrence
Wainwright finished in second and third places.


Apple Bob Winners
By Fred Hughes
After a series of elimination rounds; about six preliminary
winners squared off against their large, red apples hanging on
strings to decide the Apple Bobbing champion for children of
Suwannee County.
KEN LEE (RIGHT) brother of Jeffery Lee who won first place
in the Children's Sack Race, was declared the Apple Bobbing
winner when he was first to bite out a hunk of apple. Second and

Suwannee defeats


Santa Fe 13-1


Janet Schrader
Democrat Reporter


It was the first district game
of the year, an away game at
Santa Fe High School. The
Dogs hammered Santa Fe 13-
1. Billy Moran started on the
mound for Suwannee and
pitched four innings, giving up
three hits and striking out sev-
en. But Moran also allowed
four walks.
"I thought Billy pitched #14 Nick Reppert earned the
good enough to win tonight save against Santa Fe.
against the team we were play- Poto:Janet Schader
ing," said Head Baseball
Coach Ronnie Gray. "It's always about who you are play-
ing."
Nick Reppert, slowly emerging from tendonitis, pitched
his longest stretch of the season, working three innings in
relief and picking up a save. Reppert allowed two hits
and did not walk a hitter while striking out one.
Offensively, Suwannee got started early and often. The
Dogs scored four in the first behind singles from Aretino,
Baldwin, Yanossy, and a big double down the right field
line by Taylor Abercrombie to plate the first runs of the
game.
Suwannee went on to score one in the second, four
more in the third and finally four in the top of seventh.
Three of those runs came off Rheed Baldwin's third
home run of the year a three-run homer shot to right
center. Suwannee collected 14 hits and scored 13 runs.
The Dogs play again at home Friday, March 3 against
district opponent Baker. Game time for the Friday night
game is 7 p.m. Come out and watch some great baseball
action. Go Dogs!

through several limits of
bass.
Also competing in the co-
angler division from Lake
City were Jesse Williams
(9th-5.01), Mitchell Odom
(24th-3.00), Brooks Haisten
and Brandon Williams.
Branford was represented by
Chris Lee (47th-1.01) and
Justin Starling was the lone
co-angler from Live Oak.
Competing on the boater
side, Ricky Mott of Live Oak
was the highest finishing lo-
cal angler with three bass
weighing 6.09 that landed
him in 23rd place. Mott was
followed by Walt Starling
(43rd- 3.05), Deryl Williams
(51 st-2.04), Matt Frier (54th-
2.03) and Damon Wooley
(58th-2.00).,
I usually hear at least one
good fish tale at every tour-
nament I attend and this one.
was no exception. I will try
to convey the details of the
most recent story as they
were described to me by an-
other, competitor in the tour-
nament.
According Eric Lewis who
spoke with Mike Jackson, the
angler who won the BFL
tournament with four bass
weighing 22.12, Jackson,
technically had a five bass
limit plus one other bass that
he was not allowed to weigh-
in.. After Jackson caught his
five bass limit he landed an-
other bass in the three-pound
range which he intended to
use to cull his smallest bass.
When he opened his. live
well to locate his smallest
bass he examined his creel,
which included two eight-
pound plus bass, two other
decent sized fish and a 13-
inch bass. The problem arose
when he could not locate the
13-inch bass in his livewell.
Upon further inspection, he
noticed something protruding
from one of the eight-pound


bass's mouth. As it turned
out, the 13-inch bass had be-
come lunch for the eight
pounder!
Jackson said he tried to ex-
tract the smaller bass to no
avail and he decided to keep
the three-pound bass he had
just caught and get a ruling
from the tournament director
at weigh-in.
After consulting with the
tournament director, Jackson
was advised he had to release
the three-pound bass and al-
though he technically had
five bass in his creel the tour-
nament results show that he
only weighed-in four.
Jackson still won the tourna-
ment by more than four
pounds over second place fin-
isher Lee Stalvey Jr., who
weighed five bass for 18.10.
The next Seminole Division
BFL will be held on the Har-
ris Chain of Lakes on Satur-
day March 18, 2006.
There were two open bass
tournaments held at the
mouth of the Suwannee River
during the weekend of Feb.
18. The Lake City Bass
Busters hosted an open tour-
nament with a 10-fish limit
which was won by brothers
Robbie and Richard Ratliff
with a limit of bass weighing
12.07.
Second place went to Tom-
my Parrish, who had 11
pounds and change followed
by Chico Barnett and his
partner who weighed in a lit-
tle over 10 pounds.
The Newberry Bass Club
also hosted their monthly
open bass tournament which
was won by Donnie Feagle
Jr. and Tracy Harper. This
was the second win in a row
for the duo who brought a
five-bass limit weighing
15.08 to the scales. They
were followed in second
place by Joey Pate and his -
partner who had just over 13
pounds. I was told that it
,took a little over 12 pounds


to secure third place.
It looks like the weather is
starting to get right and the
fishing should continue to
improve on the Suwannee
and Santa Fe rivers over the
next couple of weeks. If
you're looking to enter a bass
tournament, the Lake City
FFA will hold its annual
fundraiser on the Santa
Fe/Suwannee on Saturday
March 4, 2006 and the New-
berry Club will also hold
their monthly derby the fol-
lowing Saturday.
As of this writing, I am
preparing to attend the 2006
Citgo Bassmasters Classic in
Orlando. This is the first
time in history that the Clas-
sic has been held during the
spring of the year rather than
late summer. This is also the
first time in almost 30 years
that the Classic has been held
in Florida.
Preston Clark, who is a
member of the North Florida
Bassmasters of Wellborn and
.resides in Palatka, will be
competing in this year's Clas-
sic on Lake Toho along with
fellow Floridian and former
team tournament partner Ter-
ry Scroggins.
Many journalists have
Scroggins picked as the early
favorite to win the tourna-
ment because of his vast
knowledge and past success
on the lake (he won an event
there in the fall of 2005).
However, this is the Classic
and anything can happen.
Personally, I'll be pulling for,
Preston. A win at the Classic.
would really help him out fi-
nancially, to say the least and
I'm sure he could use a few
extra bucks considering that
he just found out his wife is
pregnant with triplets!

ports you would like to share
please email them to

Top 10 best bets for bass

By: Bob Wattendorf,
Wes Porak,
Micala Radney and
Phil Chapman
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission


With more than 7,500
lakes to choose from, Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission
(FWC) fisheries biologists
have picked the top 10 bass
fishing hot spots for 2006
and offer these suggestions.
Lake George-Northwest
of Deland. Wade-fish in eel-
grass with plastic worms
fished on the- surface and
other' top-water artificial.
lures. Use live golden shin-
ers for trophy bass during
the spring spawning season,
and -in winter and ,early
spring, use deep-diving
crankbaits near old dock
structures along the north-
east- shore and off Drayton
Island.
Stick Marsh/Farm 13
Reservoir-Try the woody
stump fields, submersed
canals and hydrilla beds.
Plastic worms, spinner baits,
crankbaits, soft jerkbaits
and top-water stick baits
with propellers work well
here, arid live golden shiners
are great for trophy bass..
This is a catch-and-release-
only lake for bass.
West Lake Tohopekaliga
(Lake Toh6)-South of
Kissimmee. Fish for trophy
bass using live golden shin-
ers during early spring in-
shore near native vegetation
or topped-but hydrilla. Flip
plastic baits along grass
edges, hydrilla beds or bul-
rush. Plastic worms and rat-
tling crankbaits are good
during warmer months. Try
one of the lake's fish attrac-
tors. There are :two fishing
piers for boatless anglers.
Lake Kissimmee-South of
town. Flip plastic baits, or
slow-troll live golden 'shin-
ers in bulrush, hydrilla and
lily pads at Philadelphia
Point, North Cove and Brah-
ma Island for spawning bass
during winter and spring.
Use rattling crankbaits, soft
jerkbaits and plastic worms
during summer and fall in
open-water or along edges
of vegetation. Fly-fishermen
can wade-fish and catch
bass on popping bugs during
spring and summer.
Rodman Reservoir-East of
Gainesville. Largemouth
bass here are most active*
during cooler months. Use
live golden shiners, .floated
under a cork or free-lined in
the "stump fields" along the
river channel. Also, try the
area between Cypress Bay-

and Kenwood Landing with
deep-diving and lipless
crankbaits, spinner baits and
soft plastics.
Lake Tarpon-Near Tam-
pa/St. Petersburg. For 12- to
16-inch bass and an occa-
sional 10-pounder, try flip-
ping or pitching plastic
worms along canal and bul-
rush edges. Offshore, fish
around ledges, humps, coon-
tail and eelgrass beds with
.shad-imitating jigs,
crankbaits, jerkbaits and
top-water baits or fish with
live, wild shiners or live
shad.:
Lake Weohyakapka-(Lake
Walk-in-Water)-South- of
Orlando. Drift live, wild
shiners over hydrilla beds in
the northern half of the lake,
and use soft jerkbaits, lip-
less rattling crankbaits and
plastic worms in offshore
hydrilla. Pitch live wild
shiners and flip soft plastic
baits or spinner baits in the
bulrush and cattails in the
northern and eastern areas.
Summer months offer the
best action. Don't keep any
bass within the 15- to 24-
inch range, and only one
keeper can be. 24 inches or
longer.
Lake Istokpoga-Highlands
County. January through
April, go for the spawning
bass in vegetation over
sandy lake bottom. and
around the islands. .Flip
dark-colored, soft plastics in
bulrush and submerged veg-
etation this time. of year.
Red shad and Junebug are
the best colors. In spring
and summer, work top-water
lures and jerkbaits over veg-
etation in the south half of

Help prevent damage from bark beetles,
diseases, and wildfire through practices
that promote healthy pines.


Bayou George and Deer
Point Lake are also good.
Also, try targeting docks
and boathouses along the
creek channels and at the
mouth of Bayou George. Be
careful here. This lake has
lots of stumps and snags.
Suwannee River-Georgia
border to the Gulf of Mexi-
co. You can catch plenty of
quality-size largemouth bass
here, along with the smaller,
but feisty, Suwannee bass.
Use plastic worms, lizards,
and crawfish; jigs with or-
ange skirts and pork rinds;
and metallic crankbaits.
Look for deep structure or
shallow structure that has
deep water nearby. Live
shiners are good too, and
small bass will hit a fly or a
small floater-diver along the
bank. During the fall when
shrimp migrate into in. the
river, fishing can be out-
standing.
Everglades Water Conser-
vation Areas 2 and 3-South
Florida. The L-67A Canal,
L-35B Canal and Alligator
Alley Canal (along 1-75) are
three of the most popular
canals in the area for fish-
ing. The best fishing occurs
in the spring, and April is
the peak month. Work canal
edges with plastic worms,
soft jerkbaits, and minnow
imitations or try flipping the
vegetation. During high wa-
ter, try the open slough ar-
eas. Only one bass of the.
five-bass daily bag limit
may be 14 inches or longer.
Crescent Lake-East of
Crescent City. Fall and early
winter fishing is best near
deep-water structures. Use
plastic worms, spinner baits
and crankbaits or live gold-
en shiners.
Tenoroc Fish Management
Area Lakes-Near Lakeland.
Fish here from mid.-Novem-
ber through March. Lake 2,
Lake 3, Lake 4, Lake 5,.
Lake G, Shop Lake and Hy-
drilla Lake offer great bass
fishing. Probe deeper waters
with chrome-colored rat-
tling lures and chartreuse
(firetiger-color) diving
crankbaits, or use plastic
worms. Submersed islands
or sandbars off points are
good spots. During, spring,
flipping worms or soft plas-
tic baits in thick, brush
works well. Harvest regula-
tions vary among the lakes,
so call.the Tenoroc Head-
quarters at 863-499-2422
for more information or to
make reservations, because
these lakes are only open to
the public four days a week.
All anglers must check in
and out at the Tenoroc
Headquarters and pay $3 for
a daily permit.
Mosaic Fish Management
Area-Near Ft. Meade. Use
top-water baits around dawn
and dusk or fish with white
or chartreuse spinner baits,
plastic worms and chrome
or firetiger (chartreuse) col-
ored crankbaits. .Fish along
shoreline brush and vegeta-
tion in the spring, and look
for submersed islands or
sandbars off points, particu-,
larly during warmer months.
Lake Coulter, Lake SPll
and Lake LP2 West are the
usual hot spots. Again, har-
vest regulations vary among
the lakes, and the area is
only open to public fishing
Friday through Monday. An-
glers can't make reserva-
tions for the first-come,
first-served permits.. Call

Springtime is a great time
to celebrate agriculture, and
during March Florida Farm
Bureau will be doing its part
to increase public awareness
of the contributions agricul-
ture makes to the economy
of the state and the well-be-
ing of its residents.
"March is rich in events
that commemorate Ameri-
can agriculture. As the
state's largest general agri-
cultural organization, Flori-
da Farm Bureau supports
these events, which raise
public awareness of our in-
dustry," said Florida Farm
Bureau President Carl B.
Loop Jr.
Florida Farm Bureau and
the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services will be taking agri-
culture's messages to the
public through their joint
agriculture awareness cam-
paign. Since 2.002 the cam-
paign has been working to
increase awareness of and
appreciation for the state's
second-largest industry, cen-
tering around the theme,
"Safe, Affordable and Abun-

Park was the site .for north
central Florida high school
science teachers to partici-
pate in a workshop to learn
more about Canon Envi-
rothon, North America's
largest high school environ-

tion.
The mission of the Canon
Envirothon is to develop
knowledgeable, skilled and
dedicated citizens who are
willing and prepared to work
towards achieving and main-
taining a natural balance be-
tween the quality of life and
the quality of the environ-
ment.
Canon Envirothon com-
bines classroom learning with
hands-on field experiences
focused. around five major
topics: soils and land use,
aquatic ecology, forestry,
wildlife and a current envi-
ronmental issue.
Motivated teachers from
Alachua, Gilchrist, Madison,
Marion, Suwannee and Union
Counties rotated the five
work stations, just as their
students will do at their re-
gional contests this spring.
Trained volunteer facilitators
presented information and al-
lowed time for discussion.
The Suwannee Regional
Envirothon will be hosted by
Lake City Community Col-
lege on March 16. More than
100 students are expected to
compete. The Florida State
Envirothon will be held April

campaign, paired with grass-
roots efforts by Farm Bureau
volunteers, has succeeded in
increasing awareness of
Florida Agriculture."
During the month of
March, Floridians will con-
tinue to see the campaign's
30-second Public Service
Announcements on cable
television systems across the
state. Information about
agriculture and Farm Bureau
will also tag traffic reports
in major and medium mar-
kets. The campaign will re-
ceive underwriting credits
during, drive-time news
blocks and other special pro-
gramming on the. 11 affili-
ates of the Florida Public
Radio Network. Similar
credits will run on Tallahas-
see's public broadcasting af-
filiates throughout the 2006,
session of the,Florida Legis-
lature.
The mass media campaign
coincides with opportunities
for members of the state's ag
community to reach out to
the public on an individual
basis.
, Florida Agriculture in the
Classroom, Inc. and the
Florida Department of Agri-
culture and
SConsumer Services have
scheduled Thursday, March

Floral City Strawberry Festival


The calendar may list March 20 as the
beginning of spring, but longtime Citrus
County locals know that the sweet taste
of strawberries marks the season's true
start.
That's because nothing embodies the
vibrancy of springtime in Citrus like
scrumptious stra wberries-%vhether
dipped in chocolate, baked in a pie,


laden with whipped cream- or just de-
voured by the handful. And nothing cel-
ebrates the fabulous fruit like the Floral
City Strawberry Festival.
The festival will usher in the spring
season with a wide variety of activities
on Saturday, March 4 and Sunday.
March 5 at Floral .Park in Floral City.
The event will feature more than 120

Mrs. Coffins Spiritualist
Hear, 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.

Detecting kidney disease a difficult task


According to the National Kidney
Foundation, 20 million Americans suffer from
Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). That's roughly
one in nine adults in America, making kidney
disease one of the most common ailments in
the country. Fortunately, CKD does not
necessarily have -to lead to kidney (renal)
failure, a debilitating condition that oftentimes
requires dialysis as a means of treatment.
Early detection of kidney problems is a good
way to avoid the potential for kidney failure
down the road.
A recent study published in the American
Journal of Kidney Diseases showed that
almost half of all people with an advanced
form of kidney disease did not know they had
weak or failing kidneys. Forty-five percent of
people suffering from Stage 4 kidney disease,
which is just a step away from renal failure,
had never been told they had weak or failing
kidneys. Add to that number the fact that
nearly two-thirds of people with kidney
disease who had visited a doctor within the
previous 12 months of the study had their
kidney problems go undiagnosed. These
numbers suggest that people should monitor
their kidneys more closely and ensure their
doctors check them for kidney ailments even if
they feel like nothing is wrong.
If you suspect you might be having kidney
problems, there are indicators that can help
you determine if you're suffering from renal
failure, be it acute renal failure (ARF) or
chronic renal failure (CRF). ARF is the type of
kidney failure that is most likely to occur after
complicated surgery or trauma. ARF can also
bee the result of blockage to the blood vessels
leading to your kidneys or if urine flow is being
blocked. Toxins in your system, which can
come from overuse of pain medications or
street drugs such as crack cocaine and
heroin, can also cause ARE
CRF is the result'of a'number of processes
that lead to permanent loss of kidney function.
Diabetes and high blood pressure are the two
main causes of CRF, b'ut the disease can also
be the result of urinary tract obstruction and
kidney abnormalities. .
. 'Detecting kidney, problems can bp difficult ;

signs or symptoms. This plays a large role in
why so many cases of kidney disease go
undiagnosed. Still, symptoms of ARF include ,
fluid retention, internal bleeding and 'even
confusion. Also, seizures can be a telltale sign
of ARF. If a loved one has recently slipped into
a coma, that could also be the result of ARF.
People with CRF may not experience any
symptoms at all until their kidney function has
been reduced to less than 20 percent.
Symptoms of high blood pressure, unexplained
weight loss and anemia, where red blood cell
count is reduced, are signs of CRF, and
indicate a need to visit a doctor promptly.
Vomiting, fatigue, a loss of appetite and a
shortness of breath are also symptoms of CRF.
It's important-to remember as well that
detecting kidney failure cannot be done with a
,run-of-the-mill trip to the physician. It requires
laboratory testing, most often through the use
of a creatinine level test. When a kidney is
functioning as it should, it will remove
creatinine, a normal molecule found in your
muscles, from your blood and expel it. An,
increase of serum creatinine in the blood is
oftentimes a strong and early indicator of
kidney failure.

you can do to help your own or a loved one's
battle, visit the National Kidney Foundation

You can be happy!


By Pam Campbell
Most people are happy when things are going the way
they want them to, but if something happens they do not
like, the happiness may disappear. Everyone has the abil-
ity to be happy. It is a choice you can make every day re-
gardless of your circumstances. I realize you may have
just lost a loved one or you may be suffering with some
kind of a sickness or injury, things may not be going the
way you desire right now. I know that in this world there
are problems and things that try to steal our happiness.
However, we can still be happy. We see in Proverbs 16:20
that God shows us the key to being happy. "He who
gives heed to the word will prosper, and happy is he
who trusts in the LORD." If we really learn to trust in the
Lord and His word with everything in our life, we will
be happy. Each day you live is a gift from God, what you
do with that gift is up to you. You have the ability to
choose to trust the Lord, to be cheerful and happy, to be
thankful for what and who you do have in your life, or
you can choose to turn your back on the Lord and His
happiness and decide to be miserable. The choice is up to
you each day. When you wake up in the morning, you
can thank God you are alive and put forth every effort to
be happy, to have a positive attitude, and not a negative
one, to'trust in the Lord to fill you with His happiness,
His joy every day you live. Psalms 146:5 "Happy is he
that hath the God of Jacob for His help, whose hope is in
the LORD his God." Is your hope and happiness found
in the Lord?
Having just celebrated my 50th birthday, I received a
long distance phone call from someone who has been a
friend since we met when I was 13. She remembered I
was having a birthday and wanted to talk. We talked
about when we first met, the fun we used to have riding,
our bikes, playing at each others houses, going to the
mall, baking cookies and cakes, riding the school bus to-
/gether, so many different memories. As we talked, I was
remembering other things about this friend, how she was
always there for me, how she went out of her way to
help everyone, especially her mentally challenged broth-
er, how special a friend she was as we were growing up
and still is all these years later. I remembered how she
used to spend the night at our house, and we would'talk
for hours about our hopes and dreams for our futures.
XWe both had similar drean,.; we both wanted to marry a
wonderful husband and have children and live in the
country. We thought the ideal life would be lots of land
with kids and many animals.
When I was 15, my whole world became obsessed
with acting. I was overjoyed to win the role of Juliet in
the class play Romeo and Juliet. Though my friend was
not in this play, we both were really into acting, and
sometimes it was almost more real than our lives. The
week before the play, I went to a "play" or "illustrated
sermon" called "Heaven's Gates and Hell's Flames" with
a girl at the bus stop that had been bugging me to go to
church with her for months. That night I got saved, and
my life was forever changed in a very dramatic way! I
did not feel I wanted to portray the character Juliet, so I
resigned from the play and gave the part to the under-
study. I knew God had much better things in store for
my life. This friend and I were very close. Most of my
friends turned their backs on me because they did not
like the new person I had become, and many of them
took the path I would have been on, the path of destruc-
tion. Some of them ended up on drugs that year, some of
them died, but thank God, my close friend found Jesus,
too.
We continued talking about how great our lives
would be. The night I got saved, I met my future hus-

band, though we would not know that for
quite some time. God chose to save me, to put
me in the church where my future husband
was very active and preparing for the min-
istry. My friend started going to another
church and dating a guy she thought was a
Christian from school. I was dating Ken and
both my friend and I were falling in love! I
followed Ken to Bible College, my friend
worked for her dad, Ken and I were married
in December, and my friend married a year
later. We both thought that our hopes and,
dreams were coming true!
She Was the one with the news of a first
child, the one with the first house, but not the
one with the happiest home. God continued '
to bless Ken and I as we ministered for Him,
and after seven years of marriage and a mis-
carriage, blessed us with a miracle baby, our I
daughter Jennifer. My friend had two more
children, and after her last one was born, suf-
fered a stroke, she prayed hard, worked hard,
and made it back, and cared for her baby. Her
husband decided he did not want her for his
wife anymore because, one of her arms did
not work completely right. Yes, he really did
leave her and the three children.
She was still determined to make a happy
home for her children, and kept ongoing to
church. She met a nice person who fell in love
with her and her children. A few years ago,.
they purchased land in North Georgia, and
she finally had her dream home in the coun-
try! They have been married for 20 years
when he came home recently and told her
they were no longer married, and he was get-
ting a divorce. She is now living in a relative's
bedroom. She has no money until the divorce
is final, her brother is helping her, but she is so alone.
Her oldest child livesin another state, and her youngest
has a child and is away in college. Her middle son died
just last year at the age of 23 from too high of a dose of a
prescription drug prescribed for back injuries from play-
ing football. She has in the last fe,\ years lost both of her
parents as \\ell. She is unable to ,-ork because, f pri bl-,
lems from the stroke over 20 years ago, yet she does' do
everything she can to help anyone she can.
I look at my life as I turn 50 and I see that yes, God
has truly blessed me with the hopes and dreams thatI
talked of with my friend so long ago. My friend still
loves the Lord, she is still faithful in church, but she does
not have the life she dreamed of, her hopes and dreams
seem shattered. I know that somehow, God will help her,
and biing about happiness in her life once again, but for
now, I will remember my friend in prayer.
I will also remember how God has blessed me. You
see, over the last 31 years that my husband and I have
been married,, there have-been many, many times I have
been at death's door, so many weeks and months of sick-
ness, hospitals and doctors. There was a miscarriage, our
miracle baby Jennifer was born dead and after many
more trials and miracles, God brought her home to us.
We buried two precious sons. I continued to have more
medical problems, and then in 1998 we almost lost Jen-
nifer again. Since then we have had years were we all
seem healthy, and some that are not. What I am trying to
convey to you is this, God blessed me with a husband
'who has stayed with me, unlike my friend's husband
who walked out when she had a stroke, Ken loves me, he
loves Jennifer, he is committed till death do us part, and

so am I, We have the home in the country, the animals,
the family; God really does make dreams come true.
After talking to my friend I have really.been.thinking
about the blessings in my life. sometimes we need to
look at someone else's life and then maybe we can better
grasp how blessed we really are! We may not have
everything the w\.av we would like., or a lot ot rnoneN or
,as many,.hi'dre'ifoi animakl- .s we might Iave nought
we would but we are so very blessed! You see life may
not always be perfect, lot's of. things can go wrong, but
we all need to learn to take each and every clay we live
and determine to be thankful for all we do have and not
complain about what we don't have. Learn to be content
with where you are, and what you have. Chances are.
you have more blessings than most. Philippians 4:11 says
"Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned,
in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content."
If you have a big problem or need, remember that
God is waiting for you to askHim for His help. John
16:24. "Up to now you have made no request in My
name: do so, and it will be answered, so that your hearts
may be full of joy." God wants to answer your prayers.
He wants to fill you withHis joy, and He really wants
you to be happy! Remember, there is always someone
who is worse off than you. Determine to be happy and
ask God to fill you with His joy andHe will!
God tells us in His word to choose to be happy.
IThess. 5:16 "Rejoice evermore." KJV and if we read it in
a children's version, it reads "Have joy at all times." Yes,
we can be happy at all times! I challenge you this month
to try to do as I plan to and live each day full of the joy
of the Lord, be positive, trust God, be thankful for all my
blessings,,and be happy! Have a Happy Month!.

..... Suwannee Valley


Aunt Pams KIDS CORNER -You can be happy kis!


By Aunt Pam,
Did you know you can choose to be
happy? I know when things are going
the, way you want them that you are
probably happy. Are you happy when
you don't-get your way? Sometimes
your way may not be the best for you.
We live in a world where things some-
times go wrong, sometimes we get sick
or hurt, or someone we know gets sick
or maybe even dies. Sometimes things
at school might not be good, or maybe
we don't have something that our
friends have and that makes us mad. It
might be that someone is not being nice,
to us and that makes us sad. Yes, there
are things that are not perfect in this
world, but we have a God who wants to
make us happy. We see in the Bible in
Proverbs 16:20 that God shows us the
key to being happy. "He who gives
heed to the word will prosper, and hap-
py is he who trusts in the LORD." That
means if we really trust in the Lord and
pay attention to His word, the Bible we
will be happy! The choice is up to you
each day. When you wake up in the,
morning, you can thank God you are
alive decide to be happy, to have a
good attitude, and not a bad one, to
trust in the Lord to fill you with His
happiness.
I have really been thinking about


the blessings in my life. I wonder have
you ever thought about the blessings in
your life? I have a friend who wanted to
have the same happy life have and be-
cause of a lot of bad things happening,
she does not have a happy life. Some-
times we need to look at someone else's
life and maybe we can see how blessed
we really are! Take a look at some of
the other people you know and see if
they are as blessed as you are., You may
not have everything the way you would
like, or a lot of money, or as many toys
or animals as you might want, but you
are so very blessed!
You see life may not always be per-
fect. Lot's of things can go wrong, -but
we all need to learn to take each and "
everyday we live and determine to be
thankful for all we do have and not
complain about what we don't have.
We need to be thankful for our families,
our friends our homes, for our lives!
God wants to answer your prayers. He
wants to fill you with His joy.He really
wants you to be happy! Remember,
there is always someone who is worse
off than you, determine to be happ'
and ask God to fill you with Hs joy and
He, will!
God tells us in His word to choose
to be happy. lThess:'5:16 says "Have joy
at all times." Yes, we can be happy at,.


all times! I hope you kids will do what thankful for all my blessings, and be
Aunt Pam plans to do this month and apply! Have a Happy Month Kids!
live each day full of the joy of the Lord, SMILE!
have a good attitude, trust'God, be.

Gospel Radio


I work in the kitchen, while the radio sings
praises to the LORD.


This was my blessed gift, the Heavenly Fa-
ther gave.


"Copyrighted Material .

Syndicated Content .
Available from Commercial News Providers"


It keeps me-inn a state of mind, loving '
Christ more a inmore. : h God plucked the robe of heaven, and sent
SHim to the earth,


To have the Gospel running through my
heart all the day long,
Keeps imy eyes on Jesus, as my soul sings
grateful songs.
Many songs of Calvary's price, how He
paid the debt I owed.
For a worthless, begging sinner, to a rugged
cross He'd go.

He'd hang on the hill of death, to ransom a
sinner such as L .
My Savior drew His last breath, and just
like man, He died.

Oni the third day He arose in Victory, the
only conqueror of the grave.


That all who would believe, would have a
saving birth.
I sit in tears of happiness, to know Christ
died for me.
As He did it for the Father, and for every
eye to see.

The shouts and songs of Glory help this
ueaMy pilgrim trod,
On the path'wa y to Heaven, until I see the
face of God.

Just another verse, on the radio I heard.
Reminding me of Jesus, and the Truth of
His unfailing Word.
Thank You Lord
Kathy Wilson
Many Thanks to WGSG 89.5

Deck out your home with enhanced living space


Home improvement has
become one of the nation's
favorite pastimes. Every
day millions tune in to
watch T.V. gurus work
their magic sometimes to
extremes.
But when it comes to
real life, most Americans
operate within a budget
and evaluate their home
improvements based on
cost-effectiveness. One
growing trend is an
emphasis on outdoor living
spaces, where families find
usable space and a new
venue for decorating and
design.
"A nice deck or patio
doesn't cost nearly as
much as adding indoor
space and yet it's a great
addition to a home," says
Chelsea Gardner, a
landscape designer who
writes about outdoor
decorating and
entertaining.
"I'm seeing more
homeowners who want
improvements that enhance
their lifestyle, and decks
give you great options for
entertaining, relaxing, and
spreading out. With
today's wide range of deck
and patio products you can
add on, a signature
environment using creative
design and interesting
accessories," says Dave
Bielicki, owner of Decks
Atlanta.
Bielicki notes that
today's decks have become
much more than wooden
platforms attached to the
back of a house. They are
designer-inspired living
spaces, where comfortable
furniture, functional
lighting, and decorative
balusters make them an
attractive, multi-purpose
area for families.
Kelly Jones, founder .of
Deckpratprs, a leader in'
deck rail options and
accessories, says their
newest items appeal to the
homeowner who wants
more than just place to
plop the charcoal grill and
lawn chairs.
Included on his list of
best sellers are stylized
baroque balusters of
maintenance-free
aluminum and view
expanding options made of
glass. The company's
"Scenic Series" of glass
balusters comes in two
styles the, Frontier, a
simple rectangular design
with beveled edges, and
the Contour, a curvaceous
figure-eight design. Both
are available in clear or
tinted versions. "When you
sit on your deck, you're
actually at eye level with
the rails, -so it makes sense
to make the balusters a
focal point," Jones says.
Even if a new "designer"
deck is not in the budget,
adding balusters, postcaps,
or centerpieces can give a
tired deck a brand new
look. New balusters are so
easy to install that do-it-
yourselfers can make
dramatic upgrades in their
existing decks over a
weekend. Jones says
virtual design tools, like
the one on the Deckorators
Web site
(www.deckorators.com),
make it possible to see just
how different a deck can
look with some dramatic
updating.
Sometimes even the
"perfect home" with lots
of interior space feels
different when the weather
warms up. Cheryl and
Richard Basanti of


The Basantis hired a
contractor and converted
their old deck into a multi-
level entertainment space,
taking advantage of the
slope of their land to
create privacy and square
footage. Today, Cheryl
says her deck, which
includes attractive
designer balusters and
matching postcaps, gets as
much use and.
compliments as their
inside space.


"Remodeling your home
for financial reasons has
actually become more of a
gamble than an
investment," says financial
planning expert Viktor
Szucs, a certified financial
planner with Quest Capital
Management in Dallas.
"It's always best to invest
in enhancements for
yourself rather than for
resale purposes.'"
Although expensive
media rooms and


gymnasium-sized master ,
suites may be popular .
items for wealthy -"
homeowners, a new deck .' .*r;.$,.
or renovation of an .-,
existing one makes sense
for a broader range of '. L-. IL. ... i
people. "Remodeling
Magazine" says decks are
expected to remain a top
project. for homeowners
interested in adding value,
space and return on -
investment.

Naperville, Ill. moved into
their house in the winter,
and when spring arrived
they realized they lacked
outdoor space to entertain
and keep an eye on the
children playing outside.
"Our house had a small
deck, but it was not very
functional. It sat up high
on our house and offered
no privacy from our
neighbors," Cheryl says.
