LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Dear Editor:
Ivie Fowler
Suwannee County Commissioner, District 3
22382 92nd Trail
Live Oak, FL 32060
386-658-1602
Feb. 8
Dear Mr. Fowler,
We are writing to complain about the poor quality of the
work that was done by the county roads department when the
right-of-way was trimmed adjacent to our property located on
165th (Allison) Road on the date of Feb. 8. Attempts were
made to stop the work from being done, because the work was
basically hacking up the branches, not trimming in the proper
way; which would encourage healthy tree growth. Branches
have been left twisted, hacked off. The area looks like it was
hit by a tornado, with twisted branches, hacked of trees, splin-
tered stumps, bark removed from the side of trees, etc. Photos
were taken which are on the enclosed disk.. We also feel that
the "hack job" as we call it adversely affects our property val-
ue and property values of other landowners in the area. It is
basically an eyesore. Trees do need to be trimmed, but not in
this manner. We expect Suwannee County to change their
policies in the future regarding right-of-way trimming.
First of all, public notices 30 days prior needs to be posted
in the local paper. Example: "Public Notice: Roadside, right-
of-way tree brush trimmuning is scheduled for the month of Feb-
ruary, for the following area:, etc., etc. For more information
contact..." The right-of-way needs to be clearly marked on the
roadways with temporary florescent markers prior to trim-
ming. Before trimming starts, all the trash needs to be re-
moved from the right-of-% ay. We are'tired of seeing chopped
uokaper. plastic bottles and cans on the road ifter triiniinfg is,
completed. .The trimmijng needs to be done in a correct marn-
ner. Branches shoidd not be left hanLinL', stumps which are cut
ofwill be sawed level with the ground. All branches that are
trimmed will be cut even with the base of the branch, not
splintered as you see in the photos. The addition of the fol-
lowing tools: pole saw, chain saw and string trimmers would
work well. A chipper/shredder will be used to create mulch,'
which can be spread on the trimmed areas to prevent erosion.
We appreciate you taking the time
into correcting this situation.
Sincerely,
Peter F Carroll III
Karen "Kitty" Irene Tolson Carroll

COMMENTARY

High school dropouts cost Florida billions
By The Alliance for Excellent Education
Almost 112,000 students didn't graduate from Florida's
high schools in 2004, costing the state more than $29 billion in
lost wages, taxes and productivity over their lifetimes, reports
the Alliance for Excellent Education.
"This is a very conservative estimate," said Alliance presi-
dent and former governor of West Virginia Bob Wise. "There's
so much that it doesn't include-like the much higher earnings
that would be realized if some of the kids not only got their
high school diploma but also went on to college. Nor does it
take into account the losses related to dropouts from previous
or future years."
Students who don't graduate earn less than their classmates
who get at least a high school diploma, and considerably less
than those with a college degree. Said Wise: '"These losses in
earnings are bad for the individual, obviously, but they also
have a tremendously negative impact on each state's econo-
my."
Although states regularly report higher graduation rates, re-
liable research has shown that nationally, only about two-
thirds of the students who enter ninth grade will graduate with
a regular diploma four or five years later.
The Alliance's analysis is based on a recent report by Prince-
ton University researcher Cecilia Rouse which noted that
"those who do not complete high school are less likely to be
employed and have significantly lower annual earnings than
those with at least a high school degree, (and) they also con-
tribute significantly less to tax revenues." Rouse estimates that
the lifetime difference in income between a high school grad-
uate and a dropout is about $260,000. To calculate the figures
for each state, the Alliance multiplied the number of students
reported by the Urban Institute as not having graduated on
time in 2004 (the last year for which figures are available) by
$260,000.
This year, about 1.3 million students across the nation will
not graduate from high school on time. Nationally, the com-


bined lifetime income and tax revenue losses from this year's
cohort of dropouts alone will be in excess of $325 billion.
A chart showing the losses over a lifetime to each state and
the District of Columbia can be found' at

MARTINEZ REPORT

North Florida: Sen. Mel Martinez News


1) Sen. Martinez: We must hasten Mayport's modernization
US Sen. Mel Martinez urged the US Navy to hasten the
nmodernizatuon of ay port in eight of fnew reports concerning
, the i orsening condition of the USS John F. Kennedy.(CV-67).
"The need to hasten nuclear modernization of Mayport 'has
never been clearer," said Sen. Martinez. "This disappointing'
development in the life of the JFK raises significant questions
of national security. We need to work with the Navy to reme-
dy this situation as quickly and thoughtfully as possible." Sen.
Martinez discussed the worsening condition of the aircraft car-
rier with Secretary of the Navy Donald Winter. In that conver-
sation Secretary Winter informed the Senator that the Navy
would be proceeding with the immediate decertification of the
Kennedy.
2) Sen. Martinez on port issue: Congress needs opportunity
to weigh the facts
US Sen. Mel Martinez made the following statement on the
deal proposed by Dubai Ports World of the United Arab Emi-
rates that would give the company day-to-day management of
six major US seaports, including the Port of Miami:,
"In a post 9/11 world, there's no question that port security,
has become a high concern. We need to take a better look at
current policy to determine whether foreign, state-owned oper-
ators are appropriate managers of our ports."
"The Administration has done a good job of protecting the
homeland, but this particular deal, in light of the concerns
raised, ought to be further reviewed. Congress should have an
opportunity to weigh the facts and hear from the Administra-
tion as to why they do not view this as a security threat. I look
forward to Senate discussion, hearings, and to hearing from the
Department of Homeland Security and other relevant federal
agencies on this issue."
3). Sen. Martinez announces $42 million in FEMA funding
for Florida communities
US Sen. Mel Martinez announced the US Department of
Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA).has awarded $42 million in Public Assistance
funds to several Florida cities and counties to assist in the re-
covery efforts from Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Katrina, and
Wilma.
Also included in the funding are grants totaling $13 million
for the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices for replacements and repairs of farmers' market build-
ings.
Sen. Martinez said: "The cost of recovery efforts places a
high financial burden on the local governments andthis fund-
ing provides the essential relief that these communities need,"
said Sen. Martinez. "I am pleased that FEMA has followed
through on their commitment to Florida's recovery."
4) Sen. Martinez encouraged by State Department involve-
ment in case of detained cubans
US Sen. Mel Martinez stated he was encouraged by the US
State Department's heightened involvement in the case of two
Cubans doctors who are being wrongfully detained in Nassau,
Bahamas. In a Foreign Relations Committee meeting, Senator
Martinez asked Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for an up-
date on the situation of David Gonzalez Mejias and Marialys
Darias Mesa two Cuban doctors interdicted by the US Coast
Guard in Bahamian waters in April 2005 and subsequently
turned over to the government of The Bahamas.
"I have asked Secretary Rice to look into ways we can pres-
sure the Bahamian government to do the right thing and let
these people go," said Sen. Martinez. "To escape Cuba, with
US visas in hand, only to be held in prison cells is unjust and
this situation could be rectified in relatively short order."
The State Department responded to Sen. Martinez's request
stating that they continue to urge the Government of The Ba-
hamas to release Gonzalez Mejias and Marialys Darias Mesa
to US custody. The Bahamian government agrees that their

prolonged detention. is a serious problem and has committed to
resolving the issue soon.
5) Sen. Martinez applauds $100 million for Florida citrus
canker compensation
US Sen. Mel Martinez applauded the US Department of
Agriculture's (USDA) release of $100 million in funding to
compensate commercial citrus growers in Florida owed for
losses suffered as a result of complying with eradication ef-
forts.
"Our losses have been severe and growers have suffered sea-
son after season of critical crop damage. These funds honor the
federal government's commitment to growers who abided by
canker eradication rules," said Sen. Martinez. "I especially
want to thank Secretary Mike Johanns and "the USDA for
bringing this much needed assistance to growers facing ex-
treme adversity."
The 2004 and 2005 hurricanes spread citrus canker so ex-
tensively that USDA determined on Jan. 10 that the established
eradication program was no longer a scientifically sound op-
tion to address citrus canker. The program was modified to
eliminate the requirement that healthy trees within 1,900 feet
of an infected tree be destroyed. Also on Jan. 10, tree destruc-
tion orders were revised to reflect the fact that compensation
would no longer be provided for losses related to destroyed
trees. The assistance provided by USDA today is part of com-
pensation .owed to growers who complied with the citrus
canker eradication rules prior to the program's cancellation.
"I continue to work with the administration and growers to
.make certain outstanding claims are met," said Sen. Martinez.
"I pledge to continue working with USDA and the state to find
new ways to battle this devastating disease."
5) This week in the US senate
The US Senate is in recess this week for the President's Day
holiday. The Senate will reconvene next Monday and continue
deliberation on the USA. Patriot Act.

Suwannee County Jail assisted
with weighing the drugs and
other aspects of the case, Sher-'
iff Cameron said.
The street value of the drugs
is estimated at nearly $3.9 mil-
lion. The investigation is con-
tinuing into where the drugs
came from, who owns them
and where they were headed.
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, Suwannee
County Sheriff's Office and
U.S. Drug Enforcement Ad-
ministration whose agents
were at the scene assisted
OALE in the case, Bronson
said.
The confiscation is a re-
minder of the late 70s when it
was a daily occurrence at the
county's six interdiction sta-
tions to find large and small
trucks trying to smuggle large
quantities of marijuana into
and out of Florida. It was the
inspection stations then that
shone the spotlight on drug
smuggling activity through
counties like Suwannee and
Hamilton County where in-
spection stations abound and
trucks passing through the
area and local trucks must
stop. One such stop late one
night on Interstate 75 in
Hamilton County lead to the
kidnapping of an OALE offi-'
cer, who was later found un-
hurt, bound and gagged inside
an isolated church. When the
criminals came back looking
for the officer a month or so
later, they got the wrong man
OALE officer Austin Gay was
found murdered weeks later,
his body inside a canvas
dumped alongside a graded
road in Brooks County, Ga.
The disappearance of Gay
prompted one of the largest
manhunts ever seen in North
Florida. Nine of the 10 men ar-
rested were eventually con-
victed or plea-bargained in the
case. The 10th'man was found
not guilty by a Leon County
Jiu.y and set. free.
The Nkeekend incident caps


a busy two years at the De-
partment of Agriculture and
Consumer Services' 22 Inter-
diction Stations, where offi-
cers have recovered an esti-
mated $16 million in drugs,
stolen goods and contraband at
the locations, including a $7
million cocaine shipment,
$600,000 in stolen medicines,
60 large-screen televisions and
a truckload of pilfered com-
puter chassis.
Designed historically to
keep plant and animal diseases
out of Florida by inspecting
the estimated 12 million com-


mercial vehicles which enter
and leave the state each year,
the stations are playing an in-
creasingly important role in
homeland security efforts as
officers have detained several
truckloads of illegal aliens in
addition to the seizures of
drugs and stolen goods.
A 23rd Interdiction Station,
along 1-10 in Pensacola, is ex-
pected to begin operations this
month.

children do not have to take
the test. No one has a right to
hold back any child, because
of failing a test, she said. She
said, a test is only given to as-
sess strengths and weaknesses
of children and teachers.
"There are people through-
out the state' who know their
constitutional rights and they
are not taking the FCAT. And
they are not failing. And they
are getting their diplomas,"
she said.
She said some teachers in
the state of Florida are refus-
ing to teach the FCAT and
others are wearing protest T-
shirts before the FCAT is giv-'
en.
Castagnero said FCAT is
not a federal mandate and
there are other states that only
use such tests for determining
strengths and .weaknesses.
She says she is also against


the federal No Child Left Be-
hind Act because teaching
should be left to the teachers
and not to the federal or state
government.
Castagnero is making her
way across the state of Flori-
da where she walks along
school campuses, courthous-
es and other public places to
raise' a~\irene-ss and gain
support for her petition drive.
She has been invited to
Washington, D.C., March 8
by a women's legislative
group who, will listen to her
cause.
"Most of my issues concern
children and the, family. We
need to go back to the way it
used to be," she said.

told the Democrat March 7
no new approval has been
filed since the way jurors are
selected was changed in
1998.' Jurors are now selected
from their driver's licenses,
where previously jurors were
selected from voter registra-
tion. Not having the letter in
the files led to the case being
continued and prospective ju-
rors being dismissed.
While it was expected a
jury would be selected and
the trial would begin March
6, about 80 prospective jurors
sat impatiently while Shep-
pard and Meggs argued mo-
tions in the case into the af-
ternoon. When the case was
finally continued, 3rd Circuit
Judge James Roy.Bean or-
dered that Lundy pay the
county's costs for calling the
prospective jurors and then
not using them. Dasher said
that figure is being compiled
and will be submitted to
Judge Bean for approval.
Dasher said any time a
change in the Clerk's office's
computer programming ef-
fects the jury selection, the
Clerk must notify the court
administration, the procedure
will be reviewed by the ma-
jority of the presiding judges
in the county, and once ap-
proved will then be sent to
the Florida Supreme Court
for final approval. Once the
Supreme Court approves the
method of selection, they is-
sue a letter of approval that is
placed in the Clerk's files,
Dasher said. Dasher said he's
'not sure what happened, but
it won't cost the taxpayers.
"It's no cost to the taxpayers,"
he said. "Hudson (Lundy)
will be assessed that cost for
the jury. It's not that big a
deal," he said. Dasher said the
statute applies before the jury-
is seated, not after. Had Shep-
pard waited until a jury was
picked to bring up the issue,
Dasher said, the law would
not have come into play and
the trial would have proceed-


ed. "It doesn't affect past ju-
ries,",.Dasher added of the
current lack of the approval
letter.
Meggs, who is trying the
case on special appointment
from Gov. Jeb Bush because
3rd Circuit State Attorney
Jerry Blair has a conflict in
the case, said he hopes the.
trial can be re-scheduled
within 2-3 ees MNleggs- said
he is hoping the letter will be
taken care of by ioda\ and '
then it's just a matter of
rescheduling the trial for Live
Oak according to Judge
Bean's schedule. "From our
perspective, there's no reason
why we can't go to trial any
time," ,Meggs said.
' Lundy is charged with so-
liciting the murder of Don
Wainwright, one of Lundy's
business competitors. Lundy
was arrested in December of'
2004 after what court records
say was a meeting with a local
man the state says Lundy
hired'to kill Wainwright.
Richard Marler Sr. contacted


law enforcement after he said
Lundy wanted to hire him to
kill Wainwright, according to
the court files. Marler cobper-
ated with law enforcement as
he continued to meet with
Lundy. Immediately after the
last meeting between the two
men Dec. 14, 2004, officers
who were nearby recording the
conversation between Lundy


and Marler moved in and ar-
rested Lundy, according to law
enforcement. Lundy spent
Christmas 2004 in the Suwan-
nee County Jail but posted a
$750,00,0 property bond Dec.
27, 2004 and was. released.

Bickford -


Combee to wed


"Get on board


with HCE"


-tf

Ryan Garrett Combee and Tracy Lynn Bickford
Tracy Lynn Bickford and Ryan Garrett Combee have an-
nounced their engagement. Tracy and her family are all former
residents of Schenectady, N.Y.
The bride-elect is a graduate of Mohonasen High School and
received her associate degree in early childhood education from
Hudson Valley Community College. She is the owner of Build-
ing Dreams, Inc. Tracy is a Medicaid waiver provider, serving
individuals with developmental disabilities. She is the daughter
of Mary Jane Simone of O'Brien and James Broland of Stuart
and the granddaughter of Eleanor Pappa and the late Orlando
Pappa.
The future groom graduated from Branford High School and
is employed by the family-owned business, McKinney Dairy.
He is the son of Tim and Angie Combee of McAlpin and the
grandson of Phyllis and Richard McKinney.
An April 15, 2006 wedding is planned.


Green Cove Springs was
the setting for the Home
and Community Educators
(HCE), annual district
meeting. Thirteen Suwan-
nee County members trav-
eled on Jan. 19 to the Clay
County Extension office.
The theme "Get on board
with HCE" was emphasized
with table decorations of
sailboats and shells.
District HCE business
was conducted by Valdene
Bassett of Duval County. It
was followed by an inspir-
ing program on polio immu-
nizations in India, complete
with slides. Seminole
County Extension Director
Barbara Hughes had partic-
ipated in an international
project to protect children
in impoverished areas. She
shared stories of individu-
als who were survivors of
polio. While in India, their
group gave drops from con-
tainers with 45 doses. They
just lined up the Hindu chil-
dren. Kids opened their
mouths and two drops were
dropped in. Then a black


mark was .placed on a
pinkie to show they'd been
vaccinated. No black mark,
those children got drops the
next day.
A second part of the pro-
gram was Glen Ryan. He re-
lated a history of agricul-
ture in Clay County. His
life on a farm was recalled
with interesting and amus-
ing thoughts. Ask the HCE
members about the country
way to count to 10.
Ryan currently grows nar-
cissus plants on his farm of
several generations. The
plants were all along the
table tops and everyone
took a blooming narcissus
home.
Home and Community
Educators (HCE) welcome
new members all year. Just
call the Suwannee Exten-
sion Service, 386-362-
2771, for information.

Q: What is thrombocytopenia?
A. There's a mouthful for you. Thrombocytes
are platelets, which are specialized blood
cells that aid in the clotting of blood.
Thrombos, in fact, is the Greek word for"clot'."
People with condition known as
thrombocytopenia have a greatly reduced
number of platelets. The condition can cause
prolonged bleeding from the gums. It also
can cause patches of purple-known as
purpura--on the gums and other soft tissue in
the mouth. The patches form because the
condition is often accompanied by a
weakening of small blood vessels-the
capillaries--and blood leaks in surrounding
tissue. As a primary condition,
thrombocytopenia is thought to be hereditary.
Secondary thrombocytopenia can come as a
reaction to radiation or medications,
especially those used in cancer treatment.
Although the symptoms can be irritating--and
alarming, depending on the amount of
bleeding--they usually require no special
treatment. When applicable, the main
treatment is to treat the underlying cause.
Talk to your dentist if you experience any
unexplained bleeding in your mouth.

OBITUARIES

of Live Oak, passed
away Monday, March
6, 2006 at her home.
Harris Funeral Home, Inc.
of Live Oak is in charge of all
arrangements.

DEATH NOTICE

Claude "C.H." Rogers
Feb. 8, 1944 -
March 4, 2006

Claude "C.H." Rogers,
62, of Live Oak,
passed away Saturday,
March' 4, in Shands at Lake
Shore hospital after a long ill-
ness. Graveside services will
be held Tuesday, March 7, at
Mt. Beulah Baptist Church
Cemetery.
Daniels Funeral Homes,
Inc. of Branford, is in charge
of all 'arrangements.


It isn't spring yet, at least not
officially. Officially spring
doesn't arrive until March 20,
but it sure seems like it is here
already. I have cleaned the hum-
mingbird feeders that winter in
my greenhouse, filled them with
fresh sugar water and them put
out. Now I'm waiting, with
much anticipation, the return of
the ruby-throated hummers (ac-
tually, only the male has the dis-
tinctive ruby color, the female is
plain Jane), marvels that visit
area yards from spring through
early fall, until once again they
will leave as suddenly and mys-
teriously as they arrived. The
yellow Carolina jasmine that
runs along one section of our


front-yard fence is in bloom,
and our weather has been glori-
ous. I'm certain it won't last.
Mother Nature has her own spe-
cial ways of tricking us. There is
usually at least one last frost be-
fore Easter, and Easter isn't un-
til April 16. So, for all those new
to North Florida don'tt pack
those coats and sweaters away
yet."
Wellborn United Methodist
Church celebrated Ash Wednes-
day, the first day of Lent, on
Wednesday, March 1. Each year
at this time, the large, wooden
cross which stands year round
in front of the church, located at
12005 CR 137, is adomed, by
members of the church congre-


gation.with a purple drape, and
On Easter morning an array of
beautiful, live flowers is added.
Jinny Wilson says the color pur-
ple is symbolic of royalty and
the repentance of sin, while the
ashes that are placed on one's
forehead represents the physical
body, as in ashes to ashes, and
dust to dust. For those who be-
lieve He is the way, the cross
can be a very moving remem-
brance of the sacrifice Jesus
Christ suffered for their sins.
The cross will be on display un-
til some time after Easter.
Speaking of Jinny, she and
Jack would like everyone to
know the Wilsons of Wellborn
are doing great. They are stay-
ing busy with the many things
that keep their life interesting
and active. At present, as he has
in years past, Jack volunteers
much of his free time helping
seniors with their income tax re-
turns, while Jinny stays busy
with church and community
projects. And of course they rel-
ish every opportunity to visit
family, with an occasional ad-
venture beyond the borders of


their outback community. This
young at heart couple are a
wonderful example of how the
"golden years" can truly be
golden.
Congratulations go to grand-
parents Russell and Colleen
Smith, and great-grandmother,
Marilyn Burnham, on the new
addition to their family. Russell
and Colleen's son, David, and
his wife, Jennifer, had a bounc-
ing baby boy. Josiah Michael
Smith was born Jan. 9, at the
Women's Center in Tampa.
Josiah weighed in at an even
nine pounds and measured 22
inches. David and Jennifer live
in Land 0' Lakes, and both
work at Saint James United
Methodist Church in Bruce B.
Downs, near Tampa. In fact,
Colleen says people call it New
Tampa. David serves as youth,
minister for Saint James, while
Jennifer works with the church
youth music, director. Josiah
Michael is Colleen and Rus-
sell's first grandchild. Surely
there's no bias or partiality in
Colleen's opinion, which she

ardening tips MacA


Gardening fingers are getting a little itchy this
time of year as we look forward to spring which

will be here soon. The average date for the last
freeze is mid-March, but we have had some as
late as early April. It's been said to look for the
pecan trees to leaf out, and then you can be sure
the freezing weather is over. Don't know if this is
true or not, but it seems to work each year.
When the weather starts to warm, the grass will
start to grow. It is a good idea to wait until late
March to fertilize your lawn. For centipede lawns
early April is better. Carefully follow the instruc-
tions on the label of the fertilizer you use.
You can still plant some cool-season vegetable
crops like cabbage, collards, lettuce, carrots and
just-aboutall the herbs. Mid-to-late March is,the
time to plant tontooes,; cantaloupe,, wateormeojq,
corn, pumpkins, snap beans, pole beans, lima
beans, cucumbers, eggplant, southern peas,
sweet potatoes and squash.
It is the time to complete your winter pruning
-of shrubs. Winter flowering shrubs, such as
camellias and azaleas, can be pruned after they
.finish blooming and before they put on new
growth. You can also transplant azaleas after
they have finished blooming.
It is also time to prune any cold weather dam-
age from your plants. This should be done after
they put on new growth so you can see where to
prune. If you did not get your shrubs fertilized
last month, this is the time to do your spring
feeding.


Now is the time to take a look at your garden
and see what is missing. Check at your local
nursery and see what might bloom in summer,
fall and winter and plant them in your garden
now.
There is still time to prune your roses if you
hurry. When the weather warms, roses start to
put on lots of new growth. When your roses start
to put out new leaves, it is time to start fertilizing.
Most can be fed once a month with general gar-
den fertilizer. Keep an eye out for the pests that
love roses: aphids, thrips and mites. Also look for
diseases such as blackspot and powdery mildew.
If you start a regular spraying program for these
pests and diseases, you can have beautiful roses.
Mid-March i's the time to plant your warm-sea-
son annuals. You don'trneed to remove pan.sies. or
violas just yet, but when the weather warms uip
these will decline. Some annuals you might \\ ant
to plant now are: alyssum. asters.. babv's breath.
cleome, dianthus, dusty miller, to\glove gerani-
um, hollyhock, impatiens melampodium, nas-
turtium, nicotiana, ornamental pepper, periwin-
kle, petunia, scarlet .sage, snapdragon.
strawflower, sunflower, torenia, verbena, \va\
begonia and zinnias.
As the weather gets u armer \oui are bound to
get Spring Fever. Get out in your garden-s and dig...
a little dirt, plant a flower or t\\o and enjoy the
precious gifts God has given uLs.

Happy Gardening from ithe Live Oak Gakdne Club"

Products for contact lens care
Over 30 million Americans wear contact lenses, and 90% wear such
lenses for vision correction. At the present, there are more than 100
non-prescription products available for contact lens care, which makes
main-tenance and care of lenses confusing. Three types of contact
lenses exist: hard lenses, rigid gas permeable lenses, and soft lenses.
Each type of lens requires different methods and products for
maintenance; there-fore it is important to ensure familiarity with the
specific contact lens type a person may be wearing.
Care of soft contact lenses includes daily cleaning, disinfecting, and
weekly enzymatic cleaning. Daily cleaners remove dirt and dust that
has gathered on the lens during the day. Weekly enzymatic cleaners
further remove tough particles. Saline solutions are'used for rinsing and
'storing. New to the market are multi-purpose products that contain
various com-binations of daily cleaners, disinfectants, and saline
solutions. Multi-purpose solutions are best used with disposable lenses
and are not in-tended for extended wear soft contact lenses. Consult a
pharmacist or eye care professional for help in choosing the appropriate
products to ensure that lenses are comfortable and lasting.

treatment of his injuries.
Bernice Brickles, 61, of 10767 122nd St.,
and her passenger, Marylou Mears, 71, of Lake
City, were both injured. They were transported
to Shands at Live Oak also.
James C. Rider, 59, of P. 0 Box 505, Bran-
ford, was not injured, FHP said.
The accident shut down the busy highway for,


about one and a half hours while patients were
stabilized and transported, FHP investigated and
debris was cleared from the roadway.
One person has been charged. Rider was
charged with careless driving, according to FHP.
According to FHP, this is how they believe the
accident took place. Vehicle 1, a 2000 Chevrolet
driven by Rider, and vehicle 2, a 2004 Chevrolet
driven by Brickles, were northbound on US 129;
Vehicle 3, a 2004 Isuzu Badcock delivery truck


driven by Cason, was southbound on US 129.
Vehicle 4, a 1999 Jeep, was properly parked on
the west side of US 129. Rider did not see Brick-
les stop ahead of him to turn left at a residence,
FHP said. Rider's front right struck Brickles' rear
right. Rider traveled left of center and was struck
by Cason's front. Cason continued southbound
and struck the unoccupied Jeep's rear left with
the truck's -front right, FHP said. Rider's vehicle
came to rest across the road facing west, J3rickles
came to rest on the east shoulder facing west, the
truck came to rest on the east shoulder facing


south, while the Jeep remained on the west shoul-
der, FHP said.
All drivers and occupants had on their seat
belts except Warner, FHP said.
Cason was listed in serious condition March 7
at Shands at UF. Information on the other three
was unavailable at press time.
FHP Trooper Stuart is investigating the multi-
vehicle crash.

',1,, ,", ..' 1, I I .k i ....., I .. .I '..^ 'art supply stores.
Here's how:
Find a design that you like or use your creativity to design your own, A
simple pattern is best one that will be easy to trace, cut out, and paint.
Transfer the design onto a piece of clear acetate by tracing it with a wax
pencil.
Using an artist's knife with a #11 blade, carefully cut out the design.
To apply the stencil design to a wall:
Measure the stencil as well as the distance of the area you will apply it to.
Compute how many times the design will be repeated, allowing for a neat
arrangement at corners.
Hold the stencil in place and lightly mark the wall where the design should
appear. You might want to reverse the design by flipping the stencil over each
time it is painted, creating a more interesting pattern.
Before painting, tape the stencil to the wall to keep it in place.
Using fine artist's brushes, a sponge brush, a regular bristle brush, or even
your finger, outline or completely fill in the design with either a latex or oil-
based interior paint in your choice of colors.
Work slowly and use a small amount of paint on the applicator.
Wipe off the stencil each time it is moved to prevent paint smears.

of the three runs for Suwannee.
Sophomore Catcher Chelsea Davis
reached first base on two hits on the infield,
she scored the third run for Suwannee, and
senior pitcher Lea Schenck hit a single aind
had one RBI for the night.
For such a wet night, both defenses did a
quite well. Bradford had two errors and
Suwannee had errors but none of the errors


incurred were due to the conditions of our
field.
Suwannee's pitcher, Lea Schenck struck
out 14 batters, but Bradford's pitcher struck
out 12 of Suwannee's batters.
Next up on Suwannee's schedule was
Lafayette, at May6, on Friday Feb. 24. The
bats came alive for Suwannee. The final
score was 9-5. The Lady Dogs came away
with 10 hits for the night. Al Cash hit 2 for
3, walked twice, scored four times, stole
twice and.even stole home. Chelsea Davis
hit 2 for 5, had one RBI, and scored twice.

had three RBI's. Lea Schenck hit 2 for 4,
had three RBI's, and Mary Badgerow hit 1
for 4. Kalie Baldwin scored one run off an
error earning Suwannee nine runs for the
night. Mayo came away with four hits and
five runs, but Suwannee's errors allowed
Mayo's batters to get on base and score.
Schenck had 13 strike outs for the night in
seven innings.

much is l

pa-, the salarN of their
one transportation em-
plo.ee At least that's all that -
I saw over the course of three days.
Outdoor Show:
This year's outdoor show which is ac-
tually called the Citgo Bassmasters
Classic Outdoor Show presented by Un-
der Armour (can't forget those sponsors
you know) was probably one of the
worst shows I can-remember. I found it
particularly interesting that Citgo, the
leading sponsor of the Bassmasters
Classic didn't even have .a booth at the
show. Go figure. Also, Under Armour
the presenting sponsor of the Outdoor
show for the second Classic in a row
had a huge booth with most all of their
products on display but they were not
selling anything at the booth. Instead,
you were directed to the Bass Pro Shops
booth where there was only one product
line of Under Armour being sold in one
or two colors. I'm not a marketing ge-
nius but I think selling goes hand in
hand with advertising. It doesn't really
do much good to advertise if you have
nothing to sell, in my opinion.. Another
thing that disappoints me is that back in
1999 when I attended my first Bassmas-
ters Classic, there were lots of what I
call mom and pop vendors at the'show."
You know the small Iackle retailers that:
don't have .the large advertising luudgets '
but that still have a gfeat product that
anglers want. Now the m- are hardly any
'' at all. 'Onpc&'I found outi hat.B,A.S.S.
is charging. fdr vendor spuce.-I realized
'why! The show wasn't al'bad, of
course., There .erel4ots of big interac-
tive displays by .13rlkley, Toyota, and
State Farm with.liOts of free giveaways.


And Coca-Cola made their presence
known by giving away ice cold Vault
energy, drinks to e% eryone in attendance
all three da. s. .As always, there were
set era [ aci ttlies tfor children such as
airbrush tattoos. puppet shows, and ma-
gicians.
Classic \Veigh-In
Someone at B.A S.S. should have
pre% ented this disaster before it even
began. After all. B.A.S.S. held the first
t% o daj s of the %%eigh-in of the 2001
Classic in Nei Orleans at the conven-
tion center there and it was a flop, why
would d this time be any different? The
first da\ of this \ear's weigh-in took a
lot longer than it should have in my
opinion Lots of people even left before
the \% eileh-in \% as over because they
v.ere so frustrated with the pace of the
shou\ There \v-as a live band on stage
to entertain the crowd during the slow
times and I think that everyone would
ha\e enjo\ ed the band a lot better if
the\ wouldd lla\ e simply played music
and forgot about the vocals. This isn't
the first nine that B.A.S.S. has hired a
less than stellar group of aspiring musi-
cians to entertain the crowd either. It
used to be the World's Greatest Fishing
Band that had the duties of performing
at the Cla.ssic but I guess B.A.S.S. final-
I\ realized the', .were not living up to
their name and last year elected to hire
a couple of aspiring stand up comedians
for entertainment. Although they
weren't the best in the world, they
would have been better
than this years group
The Spookie Daily
Pride. Two sugges-
tions I have for
B.A.S.S. to im-
prove the. weigh-in
show are to bring
back Fish Fish-
burne to emcee
again and stop
boring us to tears
with hundreds
of commercials
for their pre-
cious sponsors.
Did I mention
the crowd ex-
citement was
S dead'compared
to years past? I
couldn't hear my-
-. ..-.. self think last year in
Pisburgh when the an-
..' glers were hoisting up tiny twelve
inch bass on the weigh-in stage, which
in my opinion isn't very exciting. But
although almost every Bassmaster Clas-
sic record was broken at the first days
weigh-in this year and there was little to
no excitement from the crowd! Back in
the old days'Ray Scott would come up
on stage at the-.Glassic to help motivate
the crowd to ~'.ffired up. He was there
again this-ye ht hut instead of his usual
motivation tactics he chose to rant for
several minutes: about all the great
sponsoi:'and 'all the money the anglers
were going. twin because of them, talk'
about a.turnarouid!
Records:
As I predicted, -the record for the
heaviest bass ever weighWd in at the
Bassmasters Classic was eclipsed, sev-
eral times. The previous record of 8.09
which Ricky Green had held since 1979
was broken on the very first day. The
first bass over the record was a 9.12
caught by Mark Tucker, which he coin-
cidentally caught on his last cast of the
day, but it was my friend and Palatka,
FL resident Preston Clark who etched
his name in the record books though,
with a monster weighing 11.12. The
',big bass is also the fourth largest bass
ever caught in B.A.S.S. history. By the
way, he caught the big bass off the nest
with a Zoom Critter Craw. Clark was .
also the first angler to break the Classic
record for the heaviest five fish limit
(and seven fish limit for that matter)
with his huge 29.01 sack before eventu-
al Classic champion Luke Clausen


weighed his enormous 29.06 limit a few
moments later and found his place in
the record books as well. Clausen's
huge stringer helped secure a wire to
wire victory as he went on to win the
Classic by more than five pounds over
runner-up Rick Morris. The bulk of
Clausen's winning catch he caught us-
ing a junebug colored Mann's Hardnose
worm.
Selling Tickets:
The concept of tournament bass fish-
ing used to be pretty simple, catch bass
fi make money. Now you don't really
have to catch bass all the time and you
can still make a decent living fi provid-
ed'you have secured several good spon-
sors. It also used to be that an angler
could win a nationaltoQurnament and
they would receive a lot of press. Now
you don't have to win at all to get no-
ticed. Simply act silly, stupid or yell a
lot. It also used to be that someone
could lead one or more days of a multi-
ple day tournament and everyone would
be focused on that angler. Now every-
one wants to know all the dirt. Who
got disqualified?. Who got into an argu-
menit with whom on the water? It used
to be that we could watch bass tourna-
ments on TV and see how anglers were
catching their fish and what kind of
lures they were using. Now we get to
see break dancing, temper tantrums, on
the water confrontations and more.
ESPN and B.A.S.S. are selling tickets
and doing a good job I might add.
Sponsors are everywhere and bass fish-
ing, at least on a national level has'
turned into a side show to showcase,
sponsor products and the anglers who
endorse them. For example, Basscen-
ter aired multiple shots of Mike la-
conelli cursing athis Triton boat .be-
cause the livewells that he forgot to turn
on had "killed" his fish. They also
aired multiple shots of him destroying
the stem light pole of his boat and then
kicking it into the water. Iaconelli's day
one weight was disqualified because of
his antics and this is what America has
to see on ESPN over and over. Why?
Because that's how Americais today, I
guess. My thoughts Okay, so it hap-
pened- big deal! Show it once, twice at
the most and then show us what's im-
portant. I'm a fisherman and I want to
see the anglers catching bass! I want to
see how, what, where, why and when
they are catching these huge sacks of
fish. I was at the Classic weigh-in
where I witnessed more than half of the
field of anglers weigh-in big bags of
fish and although ESPN had over 250
staff members working the Classic with
over 100 different cameras and utilizing
the latest and greatest technology, the
best thing they could show the world
about bass fishing was laconelli's fit!
Notable:
I was traveling down 1-75 to the Clas-
sic in Orlando I received a phone call
from Ricky Mott who was just ahead of,
me. He advised me to stop and get off
the interstate as soon as possible be-
cause he had just witnessed a.terrible
accident occur at the Alachua exit and
other accidents were continuing to oc-
cur because of the initial impact of a
semi and an SUV. Ricky and. his entire
family witnessed the accident and said
it was like watching something out of a


movie
that
seemed
almost
surreal.
He also
said that
they
were
very for-
tunate
not to be
involved
in the
pile up
them-
selves.


Florida Fish and Wildlife

Conservation Commission


March means
By Tony Young
Tony. Young @MyFWC. corn
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission

Better start brushing up on
your turkey calling, because
spring gobbler season is here.
Whether you prefer to use a
mouth call, box call, slate or
any combination,' March
means it's time to start talking'
turkey.
One of the most coveted and
sought-after game species in
Florida .is the Osceola turkey,
also known as the Florida
turkey. This unique bird is
one of five subspecies of wild
turkey in North America.
The Osceola occurs only on
the Florida peninsula and
nowhere else in the world,
making it extremely popular
with otit-of-state hunters.
They're similar to the eastern
subspecies (found in the Pan-
handle) but tend to be a bit
smaller and typically are dark-
er with less white barring on
.the flight feathers of their
wings.
The white bars on the Osce-
ola. are more narrow, with an
'irregular, broken pattern, and
don't extend to the feather
shaft. It's the black bars of the
Osceola that actually domi-
nate the feather. In conjunc-
tion, secondary wing feathers
are also dark. When the wings
are folded on the back, the
whitish triangular patch on the
eastern subspecies is less
prominent on the Osceola.
Osceola feathers show more
iridescent green and red col-
ors, with less bronze than the
eastern.
The National Wild Turkey
Federation (NWTF) and FWC
recognize, in their respective
turkey registry programs, any
wild turkey harvested within
or south of the counties of
Dixie, Gilchrist, Alachua,
Union, Bradford, Clay and
Duval to be the Osceola sub-
species. Eastern turkeys and
hybrids are found north and
west of those counties in the
Panhandle.
The highly anticipated
spring turkey season runs
March 18 April 23 in the
Northwest and Central Hunt-
ing Zones and runs March 4 -
April 9 in the South Zone.
The exception is Holmes
County where the season runs
March 18-20.
Hunters may take bearded
turkeys or gobblers only, and
the daily bag limit is one. The
season and possession limit on
turkeys is .two, except in
,Holmes County, where the
season 'limit is one.


talking' turkey
Shotguns are the best choice'.
when hunting turkeys, but if'
you are so inclined you may.:
use other firearms, includig-
rifles, muzzleloaders anri
handguns, or you can try yo.fr-
luck with a bow or crossboW
Shooting hours on private
lands are one-half hour before
sunrise to sunset, but on pub.
lic lands and wildlife manage--
ment areas (WMAs), you
must quit hunting at 1 p.m.
Of course, you can use
turkey decoys to help entict
that stubborn old bird, but 3 ou;
are not permitted to huntr
turkeys with dogs; use record-'J
ed turkey calls' or sounds; or"
shoot them while they are on.;
the roost, over bait or hunt
within 100 yards of a game-%
feeding station. -
In order to participate in,:
spring turkey hunting, you;-
will need a Florida hunting li.-"
cense and a turkey permit. If.
you plan to pursue' a gobbler-
on one of Florida's many,'
WMAs, you must also pur-
chase a WMA permit.
All of these licenses and"
permits are available at county-
tax collectors' offices; any re--.
tail outlet that sells hunting
and fishing supplies;, by call-
ing toll-free, 1-888-HUNT-
FLORIDA; or online at'
MyFWC.com/license.
If you didn't put in for a
special-opportunity or quota
permit, don't worry, because
there are several WMAs that
don't require them. Visit
MyFWC.com/hunting to view
a statewide listing of WMAs
where you may spring turkey
hunt with just a hunting li-
'cense, WMA permit and
turkey permit.
This year, if you take a
turkey with an 11-inch beard
and 1 -inch spurs, get your
name listed in the FWC's Wild
.Turkey Registry by applying
for an "Outstanding Gobbler
Certificate." There is also a
"First Gobbler Certificate"
awarded to hunters under age
16 who harvest their first gob-
bler, regardless of beard or
spur measurements. Applica-
tions for both are available at
MyFWC.com/hunting.
Whether it's going solo af-
ter that elusive old torn or dou-
ble-teaming a pair of birds
with your buddy, March
means spring gobbler season
is here.
Here's wishing you a suc-
cessful- spring turkey season.
Remember to introduce some-
one new to the sport of hunt-
ing when you can. As always,
have fun, hunt safely and ethi-
cally, and we'll see you in the
woods!

What you should know about menopause


(NAPSI)-According to a new survey of
female executives, menopause is moving "
out of the shadows and into the boardroom.
The survey, conducted among members
of the. National Association for Female
Executives (NAFE), found that half of the
respondents currently in menopause (45
percent) said it was worse than expected,
over one-fifth (22 percent) said it was much
worse than expected and three-quarters (75
percent) are concerned their menopausal
symptoms will occur at inconvenient times.
Menopause is the natural stage in a
woman's aging process when her ovaries
stop producing estrogens. Menopause can
occur naturally or may be induced by
surgery, chemotherapy or radiation, Since
estrogens. are largely responsible for
developing and maintaining the female
reproductive system, reduced levels can
cause uncomfortable symptoms.
The survey revealed that 88 percent of
,NAFE members surveyed have had some
experience with menopause and two thirds
(67 percent) of this group have experienced
menopausal symptoms once a week or
more.
95 percent of this group experience
physical symptoms-most commonly, hot
flashes (80 percent) and night sweats (74,
percent);
79 percent of this group experience
symptoms that are emotional or affect their,
mental functioning, such as forgetfulness or
diminished concentration (57 percent),
irritability (53 percent) and mood changes
(53 percent). ,
According to the American College of
Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG),
the first wave of baby boomer women (born
1945-1960) are now entering meno-pause
and another 20 million will reach
menopause in the next decade. These
women must weigh the risks and benefits of
treating their menopausal symptoms with
hormone therapy, I. ,, ., ,, .
A Women's Health Initiative (WHI) study,
sponsored by the National Institutes of
Health, found that there was potentially

increased health risk associated with use of
estrogens with progestin at higher doses or
for extended periods of time.
According to Diane DiLalla, age 56, "When
I turned.50 I started having hot flashes and
they were very uncomfortable, especially at -
work. At first, my doctor suggested I try some
herbal remedies but they didn't work for me. I
was concerned about taking hormone
therapy but my doctor told me I could take
Cenestin, which is a plant based estrogen
therapy, to treat my menopausal symptoms."
Her doctor's viewpoint is echoed by several
professional organizations, including the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and
North American Menopause Society (NAMS),
which recommend hormone therapy for the
treatment of menopausal symptoms at the
lowest doses for the shortest duration.
According to James A. Simon, MD, clinical
professor of obstetrics and gynecology,
George Washington University, Washington
D.C., Medical Director, The Women's Health
Research Center in Laurel, Maryland, and
immediate past president of NAMS, whether
or not to use hormone therapy is a personal
decision. "A woman needs to weigh the
impact of her menopausal symptoms on her
personal and work life with her individual
health status and history,"

Shape Up Your Garden: Pruning 101


The Basics of when, what, where and how to prune!


(ARA) Why Prune? Pruning your
outdoor and indoor plants is one of the
best things you can do for them. Pruning
removes death and disease, increases air
circulation and ensures sunlight reaches
every branch and stem.
It is the oldest and easiest way to
control the size, growth, beauty and
health of your plants and to renew or
increase their production. This is because
plants try to maintain a certain ratio of
root to shoot -- so pruning encourages
growth because it causes the plant to
enthusiastically work towards reinstating
its size ratio.
If you're not sure about when to prune,
what tool you should use, what to prune,
and where on the plant to prune, the
crash course in pruning basics below will
bring you up tb speed on how to care for
all your plants. And, if you make a few
mistakes while pruning, don't fret. Most
shrubs and trees have so many new
shoots growing that they are always
ready to renew themselves!
When
In general, it is best to prune in the
plant's dormant period, which is usually
in the late \\inter,, but pruning should
always be done year-round as needed.
Prune spring-flowering shrubs right after
they finish blooming. If you prune them
before they bloom, you'll remove
potential flowers. Prune summer and
fall-flowering shrubs from late fall until
just before they show new growth in the
spring. Ro:es should be pruned in the
late winter or early spring just as the
buds appear.
If you prune too early, you'll cause
growth to be vulnerable to frost damage,
while pruning too late will waste the
energy the plant has already put into
making the buds and leaves you are
removing. Deciduous trees should be
pruned after their dormant stage, before
they bloom. Evergreen trees should be
pruned just before growth starts, in the
spring.


How
Choosing the right tool makes the job
easier and ensures minimum healing
time for the plant. Use the following tools
accordingly:
Loppers are for cutting old stems to
the ground or to snip off stubborn, larger
branches and any branch up to two
inches in diameter
A pruning saw should be used if a
stem is larger than two inches
Use a tree pruner on hard-to-reach
tree branches
Hedge shears can be used on all
hedges except larger woody branches
Hand pruners can be used on
branches up to 3/4 of an inch thick
Anvil pruners are suited for cutting
dead growth
Bypass pruners are ideal for making
precision cuts in live wood
Make sure your pruning tools are still
sharp before beginning. Using a dull,
blade will make the task take a lot longer
and could end up doing damage to your
plants. If your tools are dull and / or
rusted, it ,igvht be a good time to invest
in some new tools.
Also make sure the tool is comfortable
in your hand. Using a tool incorrectly or
"one that is sized wrong for your hand can
cause hand fatigue, and if you've got a
whole yard of pruning to do, that's not
an option.
When purchasing a pruning tool, make
sure it fits well in your hand. Older tools
were typically not made with much
thought to the true hand size of the
average gardener, which today is often a
woman. Fortunately, newer designs have
become more proportionate. One to try is
the Natural Fit Collection of pruning
tools from Ames True Temper. The line
was created to be easier-to-use with a
smaller and lighter design and is ideal for
small hands and/or small tasks where
there isn't enough room for a standard-
sized pruner.
Although the hand grips are smaller to


.c-icolnlnod-lto sm-aiillet i-,1,d spa s the
blades still provide a full-size cut. The
lopper in the line is actually small
enough that it can be used in lieu of a
pruner, for people who lack the strength
and need to cut with two hands. All the
tools feature soft textured grips and a
non-stick coating on the blades to
facilitate easier cutting.
If you need to do a lot of close pruning,
you'll need a tool that won't wear out
your hand. Most hand pruners put the
bulk of the work on your little finger --
one that isn't used to carrying the brunt
of anything. If you've experienced hand
fatigue before, you might want to try the
Ames True Temper Reverse Pivot Ergo
Pruner. It features an ergonomic handle
contour and reverse pivot action that
places pressure on the user's pointer
finger. Its blade has a zero friction
coating to make pruning 40 percent
easier than with traditional hand tools.
No matter what pruning tool you're


using al\\a-. sterilize it before use. To
do so, mix 1 and a half cups of bleach
with 2 gallons of water. Dip the pruning
tools or saw into this solution before
starting each cut. When finished with a
job, dry the tools off and add a few drops
of oil to the blade and joints to extend the
life of your pruning tools.
What
The first thing to remove is diseased,
dead or broken branches whenever you
see them. A good rule of thumb is to cut
back approximately one foot into the
healthy wood on shrub- and trees --
which is noticeable by a fresh, light color.
Cut off broken branches cleanly instead
of ripping them to reduce the wound's
surface area in order to promote more
rapid healing. Remove any tall or unruly
branches that look out of place so shrubs,
trees and hedges retain an attractive ,
shape. If you're pruning a young shrub
(one or two years old), remove seed
heads that remain after a flower'has
bloomed in order to give
the shrub more energy to
make new flower buds. You
can do this easily with your
fingers by snapping the
developing seed head.
With roses, prune dead
wood and anything
diseased or frost-damaged.
- Prune in the living cane,
which is noticeable by the
green color and creamy
white inside. Unpruned
roses will overgrow and not
produce many flowers.
On trees, any branches
that crossover another can
cause potential damage by
rubbing against each other.
These should be pruned to
S remove this threat. Also
prune inward-growing
branches and get rid of
water sprouts -- those
straight, rapidly growing'
vertical' branches -- because
they prevent light from
reaching the interior of the
A tree. Lastly, cut off
"suckers" (canes sprouting
directly from the roots of
the tree).
Evergreens don't require
much pruning, so don't cut
back further than the green
growth into the brown
twigs, which cannot
f produce growth.
Where
Always prune a stem in
the direction you wish for it
F to grow. The way that you
cut a stem determines the
5.net direction new growth will
take. Don't cut too far away
or too close to a bud. Make
your cut just above a bud
ITS that's facing the direction
where you'd like new
growth and on a slight
angle to ensure the
healthiest growth.
Follow these simple steps
to successfully re-invigorate
S your plants and encourage
gnew, healthier growth!

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

Sun or shade? Retractable awnings


give homeowners a choice


(ARA) What could be
better than sitting on your
deck or patio enjoying the
warmth of the sun, and the
feel of a gentle breeze?
Whether you're admiring
your garden, entertaining,
reading the paper or just
daydreaming, a deck or
patio is the perfect spot -
until it starts to rain, or the
heat from the sun gets
unbearable. Fortunately,
there is an easy solution
that will let you get more
use out of your outdoor
space.
Retractable awnings let
homeowners outsmart the
weather on their own
terms. When passing
showers threaten, or when
the sun gets hot, they unroll
the awning for near-instant
protection and shade; lab
tests show that it can be as
much as 20 degrees cooler
under an awning's canopy.
When they want to enjoy
the sunshine, they roll the
awning back
inconspicuously against the
house.
Awnings also offer other
benefits that many
homeowners appreciate.
Because they prevent ,the
sun from shining through
windows and sliding glass,
doors, they can keep
temperatures inside your
house cooler as well, which
saves on air-conditioning
costs. They can help
prevent carpets and
furniture from fading in
sunlight. Awnings also
provide a sheltered place
for children and pets to
play, shielded from direct
sun.
Some of today's awnings
also offer accessories that
can greatly increase the
versatility and usefulness
owners get from their decks
or patios.- Screen room
options easily turn an
awning into a virtually bug-
free "outdoor room," side
screening cuts down on
wind and mist coming
under the sides of awnings,
and patio lights let people
enjoy their decks evenings
and nights.
Robust Growth in
Awning Usage Nationwide
-- Despite Some Myths ...
With the advantages
awnings offer, why isn't
there an awning on nearly
every deck or patio? "I
think .the main reason is a
misconception about cost,"
says Jonathan Hershberg,
president of SunSetter
Products, the largest
manufacturer of home
awnings in the United
States. "People seem to
think that a good awning
must cost thousands of
dollars, but in fact you can
get a top-of-the-line
manually-operated model
for just a few hundred
dollars, and an unsurpassed
quality motorized awning
for not much more," he
adds.
"Instead," says
Hershberg, "people go out
and buy a patio umbrella
set, only to find that
whenever the sun shines or
the rain falls, there's not
enough room under the
typical umbrella for
everyone to keep from
getting sunburned or wet.


In contrast, there's more
than enough space under
an awning. You can get an
awning that's up to 10 feet
by 20 feet. That's a lot of
shade and protection."
"Homeowners also think


that they can't install an
awning under low eaves or
overhangs, such as those on
ranch-style homes or
additions," Hershberg
continues, "but, in the case
of our awnings, it takes less
than seven feet of vertical
space under an overhang to
be able to fit the awning."

Model Types,
Convenience, and
Ease of Use
Today's awnings come in
two basic types: manually-
operated models which are
opened by hand and
motorized models which
operate by electricity. Each
offers its, own advantages.
SunSetter's 'manually-
operated models, for
example, are designed so
that any adult can open and
close them easily, without
any tools, in just a minute
or so. Benefits include low-
cost affordability, easy
adaptability to almost any
deck or patio, and support
arms that can be angled
back against the house or
set vertically on the deck or
patio floor. These arms
provide extra support and
stability, and increase the
awning's versatility by
making the attachment of
certain options available.
Motorized awnings have
retracting "arms" instead of
vertical supports. These
arms are operated, by cable
and an electric motor
hidden inside the awning,
which opens and closes the
awning at the touch of a
wall-mounted switch.
SunSetter's motorized
model also offers a remote
control option that lets you
open the awning from
anywhere, even from inside
your home. Motorized
awnings are the ultimate in
convenience, with classic
simplicity and beauty.
Some awnings do not
have to be taken down at
the end of the summer.
They can remain retracted
against the house all winter
long, yet they can be
removed and .taken with
you if you move to a new
home.
Awnings such as the
SunSetter can be installed
quickly and easily over any
kind of siding including
vinyl siding, brick, and
stucco, and on the
underside of soffets and
overhangs. They can also be
mounted on fences,
garages, and other
outbuildings, which makes
them wonderfully suitable
for use by pools and near
permanent barbecue
terraces.
Considerations When
Choosing an Awning
"I'd look closely at the
awning fabric," says
Jonathan Hershberg. "Many
fabrics are not 100 percent
waterproof, which can let a
fine mist through during a
shower. Don't assume that


all fabrics block UV rays.
Get one that blocks out 99
percent of all ultraviolet
radiation. Coated fabrics are
also easier to keep clean,
and tend to hold their color
far longer without fading."
"One note about fabric
'color that most people don't
realize," adds Hershberg,
"is that awning fabric
comes in all sorts of color
options, but awnings that
are light colored, or go from
stripes to a light solid are
generally cooler and more
efficient than solid, dark
colors. Dark colors tend to
absorb heat and can defeat
the purpose of having an
awning for cool shade."
Some other
considerations:
Compare and Save. The
Internet is a great tool to
help compare brands,
prices, and product options.
Some companies sell
awnings directly from their
factory which can translate
into .big savings. Tip:
Evaluate similar options to
ensure the best cost
comparison.
Quality aluminum
components, and baked
enamel finishes. These help
prevent rust, and eliminate
painting and maintenance.
Electric motors. If you're
shopping for an electric
powered awning, Somfy
motors are internationally
recognized as the best in the
industry.
Warranty and other
indications of quality. A
good warranty is generally
an indication, of the quality
and service you can expect
from your awning. For
example, SunSetter offers a
five-year limited warranty.
SunSetter Awnings have
earned the Good
Housekeeping Seal, the


only awnings to have
earned this -designation.
They are also the only
awnings to receive The Skin
Cancer Foundation
recommendation.
Home Trial. The highest
quality awnings come with
a no-risk money-back home
trial period, some as long as
three months. This usually
indicates a manufacturer
that stands behind the
design and quality of their
product.


Strong customer service
after you buy. If you ever
have questions after you
buy an awning, customer
service assistance via a toll-
free phone number and
Web and e-mail support is a
great peace of mind. If you
are installing an awning
yourself, a toll-free
installation hotline is a plus.
"A retractable awning is a
very low cost investment
that provides big returns in
comfort and enjoyment,"

(ARA) There's no excuse for planting the
same old pink and white impatiens year after
year, staging the same old garden scene.
This season take the plunge into a
wellspring of new, dazzling, trialed and true
fabulous flowers and foliage. It's time to spice
up your landscape and debut some hot new
varieties and colors that will instantly
transform your garden into center stage.
Here are six Simply Beautiful showstopping
suggestions to spotlight your beds, borders
and containers. Each plant is "goof-proof"
and will bloom all season long without a lot
of work.
Black pearl ornamental pepper debuts this
spring! That's right, black, and this year it's
not optional! Black-leafed plants are the "little
black dress" of the plant world. Everyone
needs at least one, they never go out of style
and they make every garden look great! Black
Pearl shows off leaves of pure black with fruit
that matures from black to deep red on plants
that are vigorous and bushy.
These upright, well branched plants love
heat and humidity, and are not fazed by
drought. This All-America Selections winner
is virtually carefree, perfect for containers or
the garden in full sun. Use this black beauty
as a backdrop to showcase any of your
vibrant colored annuals and perennials to
make everything you plant pop with brighter, -
bolder color.
Serena and Angelmist angelonia get rave
reviews: Set these blossoming beauties center ; |
stage in, full sun in your garden and they'Il
show off all season long. The-e beautiful
bloomers look like mini orchid, and are eas-. ,i
to grow. They love the sun and are obliviou ..
to heat and humidity. '' -.
Serena angelonia varieties are compact
growing only a foot tall and up to 14 inches'
wide, and the plants are covered \ ith show\
flower spikes that give bright color all
summer. Serena angelonia needs no
deadheading and maintains an ea.s-care
nature. Available in Lavender Lavender Pink,
Purple 'or -White, try it for. a full ,flo.%:eect
garden show.
For the same look in a taller, more vigorous
plant, try Angelmist angelonia. The iarietie'-
in this series are perfect for adding height and
rich color in containers and offer a bountiful
"mist" of blooms all summer long
Blazin' Rose Iresine offers boom without
bloom: Striking foliage that can't be typecast

containers. Stunning in partial 'l..
shade, Blazin' Rose displays a 7,
mounding, open habit, growing 12. ,
tol4 inches tall and spreading 16
to 20 inches.
Fanfare spreading impatiens
upstage traditional varieties: A
one-of-a-kind breeding
breakthrough, these strong,
spreading impatiens create a
mound of color that adds drama to
hanging baskets, mixed containers
and landscapes. Fanfare varieties
fill in extremely fast to create loads
of instant color, reaching a garden
height of 16 to 20 inches and
spreading up to 24 inches.
Fanfare impatiens are
exceptionally heat tolerant and
will look great all season long.
Plant them in full to partial shade,
and for best results feed and water
regularly. In spring 2006, look for
all-new Fanfare Bright Coral and
Fanfare Pink Sparkle.
Dakota Gold helenium brings
home the gold: These reliable golden yellow bloomers
give a 14-karat gold performance in true garden star
fashion. This North American native is a winning choice
for summer landscapes. Easy-care plants perform
perfectly in a wide spectrum of conditions, from hot and
dry to cool and rainy with no deadheading required.
These mounding marvels grow vigorously to create a
blanket of bright, cheerful blooms over finely textured
foliage. Dakota Gold helenium grows up to 14 inches
tall and spreads up to 28 inches.
