Serving Suwannee County since 1884 Weekend Edition March 10, 2006


One little sheet

of paper stopped

court trial,

now will start

it up again

Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
Suwannee
County Clerk
of Court
Kenneth
Dasher said
March 8 that
a circuit

postponed Dasher
this week be-
'cause everyone thought mea-
sures had not been taken to
bring the county up to date on
how juries are chosen was a
mistake. Dasher said the letter
he presented to the court was
the correct letter after all, and
the county is in compliance
with state jury selection laws
and was in compliance on
March 8.
"My, 1995 letter I produced
is a true and good letter be-
cause the system, (actually)
hasn't changed since 1995,"
Dasher commented.

School Board Member for four terms


Ceryak will not seek re-election


Staff
After 16 years serving the
public as the District 4
Suwannee County School
Board member, Barbara
Ceryak has announced she
will retire in November
when her current term ends.
Ceryak is currently the
School Board Chairman.
Ceryak's announcement
means there will be a new


face on the School Board be-
ginning in November, but so
far, no one has announced
their candidacy for the seat.
Ceryak was elected to the
School Board in 1990 and
has served four consecutive,
terms, drawing opposition
only once, she said. She is a
Certified School Board
Member, having completed
the requirements of the


Florida School Board Asso-
ciation for Board Member
Certification. Along with the
other members of the School
Board and the superinten-
dent, she participated in the
FSBA Certified Board pro-
gram, id ithe Suwannee
County School Board earned
the distinction of becoming a
Master School Board, one of
only 28 boards in Florida to


do so.
"It has been a great honor
and privilege for me to have
served on the Suwannee
County School Board for the
past 16 years," Ceryak told
the Democrat. I am proud
to tell people I meet from
different parts of Florida that
I am on the Suwannee

School District


explores impact fees


Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter
The School District is exploring the idea of collecting
impact fees to help deal with growth management.
A few weeks ago the School Board invited Baker
County School Superintendent Paula Barton and Support
Services Director Marcelle Richardson to speak at a
workshop about the issue. Baker County Schools, who
are in the process of implementing impact fees, shared
with the School Board the process they are going through
to enact the fees.
Explaining impact fees Barton said when new growth
occurs there's an impact on several entities including
schools, roads, law enforcement and fire services that
someone must pay for.
'When growth comes in, the student population increas-
es," she said. "Are we the residents going to absorb that
cost? Are the new folks coming in goihg to absorb that?

Or are we going to share the
cost?"
Richardson explained the
first step Baker County took
was getting the county manag-
er and county commissioners
to approve the idea. Next, they
conducted a study to justify
the need for collecting the
fees. Third, the commission
passed an impact fee ordi-
nance for the school district.
She said the Baker County
school board could collect up
to $5,068 as justified by the
study. However, you don't
want to set the fee at the max-
imum amount, she said.
Richardson said Baker-
County commissioners set im-
pact fees for the county at
$1,500 and for the school dis-
trict at $1,500, for the first
couple of years with a 20 per-
cent increase for five years.
After that time the district
would again conduct a study
to justify the fees, she said.
The Baker County school
district will collect a flat fee of
$1,500 from households con-
sisting of those who set .up.
mobile homes and those who
construct single-family
dwellings or multi-family
dwellings. The county will
collect those fees only for
construction of commercial or
industrial buildings.
Richardson said the money
generated from impact fees'
for the school district can be
used for new buildings and
computers and other equip-
ment for classrooms.
"It can only be used for new
units. It can't be used for any


type of replacement," she said.
At the workshop Suwannee
Superintendent of Schools
Walter Boatright asked if
dealing with class-size reduc-
tion mandates coupled with
having limited available facil-
ities would be a justification
for the fee.
"Yes, because it's a new
classroom," Richardson
replied.
Barton said impact fees
would be imposed on all peo-
ple constructing a new
dwelling, including those who
move into the county and
those already living there.
The Suwannee County
School District is seeking the
alternative to generate impact
fee dollars because they say
school attendance is tip and
Public Education Capital Out-
lay (PECO) dollars and Spe-
cial Facilities Funds, which pay
for new growth are quickly
slipping away.
Suwannee County Commis-
sioner Randy Hatch said the
commission has not yet been
formally addressed by the
School Board about the idea,
though he has discussed the is-
sue with some School Board
members.
Hatch said he is not opposed
to the idea of implementing im-
pact fees.
"I'm certainly open minded
to it, but it's not a cure all," he
said. "Once fees pay the initial
cost for construction of a
school, how will they pay for
administration and teachers for
that school?"
Hatch said impact fees will
be assessed against new con-
struction and would not affect


anyone purchasing an existing
home.
"For instance, if an older
couple who own a 4,000 square
foot home decides to down size
by building a smaller home, be-
cause it would be a new struc-
ture they would have to pay the
fee," he said. "The impact fees
would be collected from the de-
veloper. They would tack them
on and those having the home
built may not even know it."
The School Board would
only have the authority to im-
pose those fees on residential
construction, because residents
are the ones who will impact
schools, he said.
Hatch said the fees would
pay for new schools and roads
and additional police and EMS
services.
"Growth is not going to
lessen. You can be reactionary
or proactive and visionary,"
Barton said.
Boatright said the student
population was up more than
180 students this school year
from last year.
"Small districts are having to
be creative to find ways to deal
with growth management,"
Boatright said.
If the County Commission is
favorable to the idea, which
some on the County Commis-
sioners have said they are not,
the School District will have to
hire a professional to do a study
to justify the fee. The County
Commission would then have
to approve it and develop a
county ordinance.

The trial is expected to be

trial date has not been final-

What brought about the
cancellation of the felony trial
March 6 was a question by
Jacksonville attorney Bill
Sheppard of whether the
county had complied with
state statutes to have a letter
from the Florida Supreme
Court saying the county was
in compliance with the jury
selection laws. Dasher pro-
duced a 1995 letter signed by
the Supreme Court saying the
county was in compliance, but
because of the way juries are
selected was changed in 1998
from pulling lists of jurors
from voter registration files to

the county wasn't in compli-

There may be some folks out there
who don't understand that the way
things happen in television drama is
-! not necessarily the way they happen
r1 'in real life. Maybe never.
For instance, we have all sorts of
."CSI" (crime scene investigator)
1 J i shows on television. These programs
are of a forensic nature. They com-
bine art and science where a drama is
f, developed around some of the latest
techniques in investigating crimes.
Dwain Walden. And indeed, much of what they show
about DNA and trace evidence is for
real. It generally doesn't happen as quickly as the television series'
would suggest, however. And probably the investigators in real life
don't reveal that much cleavage' either.;
But the greatest contrast comes in the fact that few suspects
throw up their hands and admit to forensic scientists that they did
the crime, how they did it and why they did it. In real life, they hire
expensive lawyers and go to trial. Some of them will be found not
guilty.
Of course it's difficult to get all of this into a 60-minutes televi-
sion show. And so they have to fast forward a lot of the detail.
And though we have high speed chases all over America, they
seldom come across like they do on television. Take those motor-
.cycle guys who are being chased through downtown. All of a sud-
den they go airborne and. clear three or four parked cars. That can
onlyhappen on television because what you don't see is that some-
one set up a ramp for the motorcycle guy. In real life, without that
ramp, the front wheel of his motorcycle hits the rear of the car,
stops abruptly and the rider is hurled through the air and dangles
from the awning of a department store two blocks, down the street .
Chase o\ er.
And crooks can't really climb down chimneys. Flue liners are
not that big. Then there are dampers just above the fireplace. And


typically the throat of the fireplace is not big enough to allow San-
ta Claus or a jewel thief to pass through. Quite often we read where
some thug actually tried to get down a chimney and they had to
take the house apart to get him out.
But some of the public is so gullible, they buy into the special
effects and special props as real life particles.
This just in from Orlando: Aman was rescued after spending six
hours stuck in an oven's exhaust vent in a convenience store he
was trying to burglarize. How many times have you seen people
crawl through these vents in movies?
The vents they use in television drama are specially made for
that movie project. The ones in real life generally are much small-
er. Just ask Lonnie Shields, 37, of Orlando. After they finally cut
him out of the vent, he was all banged up and scratched up from
his miscalculation.
Now when he goes to court, he may even try to use something
he's seen on television as a defense. Have ybu seen'the commer-
cial where the accountant crawls into an air vent to retrieve his
credit card statement? Of course the greatest flaws in that defense
is that this suspect is not an accountant and he didn't work at this
store. Maybe he can still use "the devil made me do it" defense.
Then we have those events in the movies that may have actual-
ly been taken from real life.
In Wittenberg, Wis., a pedestrian was arrested for attacking cars
in the street. He was jumping on hoods, kicking out windshields,
breaking offantennas, etc.
And in this instance, it wasn't really difficult to determine who
the suspect was. No CSI experts had to come to the scene to sepa-
rate. the culprit from the crowd. The suspect was the only one
naked. If this had happened in Chicago, Ill., we might suppose that.
he had just lef the filming of "The Jerry Springer Show."
Good thing he did not try to hurdle any of those cars without a
ramp. He may have given new meaning to the term "hood orna-
ment."

OPINION


Florida Association of Mortgage Brokers responds


By Steve Schneider, CMC, CRMS, president-Florida
Association of Mortgage Brokers
Following is an article from Attorney General Crist's monthly
newsletter about home loans.
According to a 2004 study by JD Power & Associates, mort-
gage brokers ranked highest in customer service among all mort-
gage originators.
According to a 2004 Georgetown University study, consumers
in the sub prime/non-conforming market pay lower Annual Per-
centage Rates '.PR) when dealing \' ith morgage brokers than
oilier loan oriuinators
XAccording to-a 20-14 analysis by wholesale e Access, mortgage
brokers originate 66 percent of all home loans.
The HUD-Treasury joint report that the article references was
published in 2000. The "testimony" referred to was anecdotal and
very little science was involved in either the study or the report.
Although mortgage brokers are clearly the choice of con-
sumers, brokers cannot and do not fund loans or make underwrit-
ing decisions. These responsibilities belong to the lender.
Without the subprime/non-conforming market, consumers
who currently enjoy 'the benefits of homeownership might not be
able to do so. :
While the F.AMB recognizes that as: with any industry, some
"bad actors" do exist, it is irresponsible and unfair to negatively
categorize an entire industry which is largely comprised of small
business owners based on the actions of a few unscrupulous indi-
viduals and companies.
The 4,000-plus members of the Florida Association of Mort-
gage Brokers subscribe to a strict code of ethics and continuously
pamrcipate in education courses offered b', the FAMB's Education
Foundation.
Following the article, the FAMB has shared its time-tested con-
sumer tips to avoid abusive lending practices.

letin is now available for subscribers. Please visit http://myflori-

Home not-so-sweet home
Unscrupulous lenders can turn the American dream of home
ownership into a nightmare.
Once upon a time, buying a house meant years of saving for a
down payment and, if you didn't make much money, hoping to
find someone who'd trust you with a mortgage., What a difference
a few years make. Since the 1980s, borrowers and lenders have
practically switched roles-- with lenders aggressively seeking out
borrowers and making credit available even to people who can't
handle money well. Nowadays, the biggest lenders in the nation
are the ones that make subprime loans, which are loans to people
with poor or marginal credit histories. "Yes, more people than
ever can get loans," said Assistant
Attorney General Allison Finn. "But the expansion of credit has
also led to widespread abuses." Investigations of the industry have
uncovered unjustified fees and penalties, inflated appraisals and
income statements aimed at getting questionable loans approved,
baiting and switching borrowers on loan terms and other evidence
that lenders exploit their customers.
In January, for the second time in three years, the biggest mort-
gage lender in the United States agreed to reform its business prac-
tices and refund millions of dollars to borrowers.
Ameriquest Mortgage Co: admitted no. wrong-doing but
promised attorneys general and financial regulators that it would
abide by tougher standards than required by existing lending laws.
Borrowers will get $295 million in restitution, and $30 million in
fees and investigative costs will go to the states. Ameriquest's

62,000 borrowers in Florida will receive about $19 million.
Settlements set standards
In 2003, Household Beneficial Corp.-then the nation's biggest
mortgage lender-reached a similar sweeping agreement with the
states and agreed to pay $484 million in refunds, costs and fees,
the biggest consumer-protection settlement ever. Household too
promised to abide byhigher standards than set out in laws.
"These settlements should raise standards for all subprime
lenders. Now they're all on notice that these practices are what's
required for them to stay out of legal trouble," Finn said.
The Attoiney General's Office worked on the, Ameriquest set-
tlement with the Florida Office of Financial Regulation.
More high-interest loans
In the early 1990s, only one out of. 20 mortgage loans was a
high- interest subprime loan. By 2004, one out of five were in that
category. In 10 years, the value of subprime loans grew from $35
billion to $530 billion annually. The reason is that home loans have
become financial instruments, bought and sold like stocks and
bonds. Real-estate investors are pouring money into:lending com-
panies to help them expand the subprime market. The availability
of these huge sums is a powerful incentive for brokers and others
who originate loans to find borrowers and make deals. Instead of
working with a bank down the street at every step of a loan, home-
owners increasingly.deal with a broker, often unaffiliated with any
particular lender, who arranges a loan, collects fees and soon after
has nothing more to do with the transaction. The lender who was
brought into the deal by the broker may then sell the loan right
away to some other entity.
In the long run, the homeowner bears much more responsibility
for problems with the loan than he used to. If he's been defrauded,
the.party who did it may be out of the picture. At the same time,
on the brokers' side, less care may be taken to make sure the home-
owner's circumstances suit the loan, particularly his ability to pay.
The goal may become generating fees and other profits, and
turning the loan over to the next participant in the process. Mort-
gage brokers "appear to be significant sources of abusive lending
practices," according to a report by the federal Department of
Housing and Urban Development and Treasury Department.
A "home" loan that really isn't
In contrast to a prime loan-at lower interest rates and to bor-
rowers with good credit-a subprime loan is much less likely to be
made to actually buy a house. The bulk of subprinie loans are
made to people who already have homes. Instead, the borrowers
are usually refinancing their houses, often adding other debts to
what they owe already. "More and more Americans are using their
families' shelter to repay what they charged at the mall," accord-
ing to Consumer Reports magazine.
Another major reason for refinancing is improvements. Along
with brokers, home improvement contractors seem to be the most
significant perpetrators of predatory lending practices, HUD and
the Treasury Department report. Working together, these two
groups benefit more from the refinancing of a large mortgage than
making a small loan for only the improvement. Some borrowers
refinance simply because they think their new loan will be more
advantageous than the old one. However, there is evidence that
brokers and lenders may mislead subprime borrowers about the
real bottom line-promising, for instance, a fixed rate turns out to
be adjustable. With new fees rolled into the new loan amount,
homeowners can end up paying much more than before.
Other common predatory practices found in subprime lending
by government investigators include:
In the loan application, inflating the value of the property or the
borrower's income to obtain a high-value mortgage with plenty of
fees, but creating trouble for the homeowner.
His real income may be inadequate to make the payments and,
if he has to sell soon, he'll get less money than he owes for the
house.
Trapping borrowers into bad deals with severe prepayment
penalties that prevent them from switching to better loans.
These practices cause the equity homeowners may have built up
to be stripped away, or lost altogether. Meanwhile, as predatory
lending expands, existing laws have not kept up. These federal
laws do not address the new practices that have emerged. "If the
federal oversight is insufficient, the states will have to lead the
charge," said Jack Norris, the Attorney General's Special Counsel
for Multi-State Litigation. "States must intervene in companies


whose policies and practices are designed to defraud homeown-
ers."
He added, "The tragedy of losing one's home.because of unfair
or misleading business practices is unimaginable."
Who pays most?
The elderly and racial minorities are far more likely to have sub-*
prime loans than other groups, and a house in a low-income neigh-
borhood is about three times more likely to be financed with a
high-interest subprime loan than a house in a high-income neigh-
'borhood.
It makes sense thai people \ itbh less money would haie' mofe
trouble making ends meet-and poor credit records-than people
with more money. But many studies suggest that other factors may
be at work. Black people compared to white people of the same in-
come are more likely to have high-interest loans: This may be the
result of difficulty getting prime loans because, among other rea-
sons, reputable banks are hard to find in inner cities, according to
the HUD'-Treasury study.
As many as a third of subprime borrowers could qualify for low-
er- interest prime loans, a 1996 Freddie Mac study found. High-
pressure tactics from subprime lenders or a lack of money savvy
by borrowers may be why they don't.
As for elderly homeowners, they are "frequent targets because
they often have substantial equity in their homes," Peggy Twohig
of the Federal Trade Commission has said. "Unethical lenders
-may take advantage of consumers in the weakest bargaining posi-
tion."
Revamped practices
The Ameriquest agreement contains many innovative require-.
ments, such as:
No refinancing that do not benefit the borrower.
Full disclosure of loan terms, including specific language that
must be used to tell potential borrowers what kind of loan they will
be getting (fixed, adjustable, etc.) and whether the loan includes a
prepayment penalty. Updates about changes in promised loan
terms. Ameriquest would have to tell potential borrowers in writ-
ing, at least three days before the closing of the loan, of any.
changes.
Potential borrowers with similar credit status must be offered
similar interest rates.
Restrictions on refinancing.
Restrictions on prepayment penalties.
Appraisals must be made by third parties selected by an auto-
matic system from panels to be set up by the individual states.
No inflating of borrowers' income.
No signing documents on behalf of borrowers.
Independent third parties will conduct the loan closings and can-
not encourage potential borrowers to sign the closing documents.
The Florida Association of Mortgage Brokers (FAMB) offers
the following consumers tips to avoid abusive lending practices
during the home buying process:
Shop around and compare. If you need to borrow money for a
home purchase, refinance, home repairs, medical expenses or bill
consolidation, shop around with different brokers and lenders.
Compare interest rates and find out what the total costs of the loan
will be and your monthly payment before making a decision. Use
the Good Faith Estimate from each application to compare the
loan terms and costs.
Be cautious. Be wary of anyone who calls you on the phone,
solicits you in the mail or comes to your door offering "bargain
loans." Beware of claims that the offer is only available for a short
period of time. Beware of lenders claiming 'bad credit-no prob-
lem'. If the loan seems too good to be true, it probably is.
Never act immediately. Say "no" to lenders who ask for up-
front fees allegedly to cover a first loan payment and other ex-
penses as part of the application. Never pay a lender cash for any
fees, and always make the check payable to'the lender, not the in-
dividual loan officer.

With you gone so fat away It is hard for me to live from day to day
You gave me strength andqyou gave me love
Can you still give me that from above?
You taught me how things in this world worked
And fixed things when they were broke
You gave me the guidance that I needed In this world-you are needed
All I have now are memories, both good and bad
When thinking about you, how can I not be sad?
I will work through this I will move on
Because deep in my heart you will never be gone
I am thankful for everything I had with you,
no matter how short a time
You leaving me so suddenly was your only crime I.
But you are forgiven because you had your reasons
And the Lord above said that it was your time
I will see you again someday Vicky,
Although it may not be tomorrow Den
When I see you again, John
Only then will there be no more sorrow! For Me!! yoi

According to Charles Walker of
the Live Oak Elks Lodge, this is
the first time ever that two chil-
dren from Suwannee County have
won the state Hoop Shoot. Kyle
Thompson of Live Oak and Jim-
mie Lee Taylor of Branford both
won the state championship Feb..
25 in Umatilla. Thompson was
named Champion of Champions
because he hit 23 of 25 shots in
the championship round of the 12-
13 age group.
Walker has been in charge of
the Hoop Shoot for Live Oak Elks
Lodge for many years. He carried
the boys to Umatilla for the state


championship.
""I was so proud and excited I
wanted to stamp and holler,"
Walker said.
Taylor tied in the first round and
had to go through two elimination
rounds to claim the championship.
He and his competitor in the 10-11
age group tied with four baskets
each in the first elimination round.
Taylor won the second hitting five
to his competitor's four baskets.
Both boys advance to the
Southeast Regional Hoop Shoot
March 24-26 in Valdosta at Val-
dosta State University. Children
from five states Florida, Georgia,
Alabama, Mississippi and South
Carolina will compete for the
Southeast Regional Champi-
onship.

stuff. We need those type of
efforts from our pitchers if
we want to compete for the
district title."
Dog bats came alive in the
bottom of the third when
Ross Aretino tripled. It was a
good hit for Aretino but the
extra base came from good
old-fashioned hustle. And the
hustle had Aretino on third so
he could score off an infield
single by Moran.
The score after three was
1-0 Dogs and stayed that way
until the bottom of the fifth.
Moran singled and stole sec-
ond base. Rheed Baldwin sin-
gled and earned an extra base


when the Baker second base-
man overthrew first base and
the ball sailed into the
dugout. Moran scored to,
make it 2-0. Then Matt
Yanossy smacked a huge
home run over the center
field fence scoring Baldwin
to make the score 4-0.
"Yanossy's homerun was
huge and was exactly the dis-
tance we needed," Gray said.
"That was big hit for Matt
and for our team. He battled
the leifhander all night and
the pitcher won the previous
three at bats and Matt won
the last one."
Moran came out in the top
of the sixth and threw three
strikeouts. The crowd cheered


as the Dogs came out on the
field for their last up. Baker
pulled a new pitcher to the
mound.
Nick Reppert came in to
relieve Moran in the seventh,
gave up one hit and struck
out two. With the win, the
Dogs added another district
win to their total. Suwannee
is now 3-0 in district play.
"It was a good game and I
knew it would be," said
Coach Ronnie Gray. "Our
players responded well in that
environment as they usually
do, and I was glad to see that.
Baker has a good club and
they will be difficult to beat
at their place when we play
in April."

Welcome once again to the Fit Files. To-
day we'll talk about something that all par-
ents should be extremely concerned about:
your children's health. This is something
that parents do not take lightly.
Let's face it most of us put off going to
the doctor for ourselves unless we are on
our death bed, but let our children get a
sniffle and we are on our way to the doctor
regardless of what time it is. We will do
anything for them when they get sick with
a cold but we need to start looking at how
to prevent them from getting ill. It is a
proven fact that a physically fit child is
less likely to get sick yet we are not en-
forcing proper eating habits and an active
lifestyle for our children. If we were
Suwannee. County would not be ranked
number two in the state of Florida for
childhood obesity.
Now that you know there is a problem,
what is the answer? There is not one an-
swer there are several. The first is to re-
strict the amount of time your child spends
inside on computers, watching televisions,
and playing video games. We live in a so-
ciety of major technological advances and
our children have passed many of their par-
ents in the knowledge of how to use these
gadgets. Some of them will help them in
the world while others simply occupy their
minds. We must force them outside to truly
get their body moving as fast as their mind

does.
Secondly, we must plan their
meals and quit eating on the
run. This is especially true with
breakfast. Most of our children
are lucky if the get a sugar
filled pop tart on their way to
school. This may mean waking
them up a little early and
putting them to bed before their
favorite show ends but it wili
be worth it. Also be aware of
what your child is getting at
school for lunch. If it is not
something of proper nutritional
value on a certain day, make
sure to pack a good lunch high
in protein and complex carbo-
ji, hydrates. If it is something that
is of common practice call the
County office and ask for an ex-
L planation. Remember one per-
son can make a difference. At
nights plan a time for everyone
to sit down and eat together.
This will not only improve their
health but also teach family harmony.
Next is to get them involved. Search out
and find positive activities' for your chil-
dren to be involved in. We are very blessed
that we live in a community that offers sey-
eral physical activities for our children,
They range from sports to dance to gym-
nastics to swimming. Vary their activities
so that they w ill not become bored with
something. Today,s children can become
bored fast so variety is the key. Eventually
they will find an activity they love and
want to stick to it.
And finally, set an example for your
kids. Children want to see how it is done
not just be told. Plus getting physically fit
can easily become a family activity. ,What
better way to get involved with your child
than working side by side with them.
Do not forget with change comes resis-
tance. Your child will probably resist this
change in lifestyle because they are used to
another way. But do not give in and let
them quit. Do you not force them to take
that nasty medicine when they our sick just
because it does not taste good? Of course
not. Just be consistent and soon this
lifestyle will become habit. If you need
help fell free to contact the general manag-
er at Suwannee Health & Fitness and th6
staff there will be glad to help in anyway
they can. We must fix this problem.

Jaguars Travel 2,000 Miles from Guyana

to New Home at Jacksonville Zoo


After negotiations with the
government of Guyana in
South America, facilitated
by the Iwokrama Interna-
tional Centre, Jacksonville
Zoo and Gardens is pleased
to announce the addition of
two female jaguars to. their
award-winning exhibit,
Range of the Jaguar. The re-
cent additions bring the
Zoo's jaguar collection to
six, one male and five fe-
males, the largest collection
in the United States. Having
six jaguars advances the
Zoo's goal of becoming a
major jaguar research center.
The new bloodlines of wild-
born cats also help the ge-
netic health of the entire
population in U.S. zoos.
Delfi Messinger, the Jack-
sonville Zoo's director of,
animal programs, and Nick
Kapustin, its senior veteri-


narian, brought the animals
to their new home at the Zoo
from two separate homes
outside, of Georgetown,
Guyana in mid-January. The
jaguars came .to the Zoo on
permanent loan from' the
Guyanese government
through an agreement of fi-
nancial and technical contri-
butions toward in country
conservation projects.
The right to name the cats
will be auctioned off at the
upcoming ExZOOberation
fundraiser on April 22. One
of the cats is now on exhibit,
followed by the other one
later this week. The new
jaguars will be exhibited on
a rotating basis with the four
other jaguars currently at the
Zoo.
For o\er 9.1 \ear,, the
Jacksonmille Zoo and Gar-
dens has been dedicated to


inspiring the discovery and
appreciation of wildlife
through innovative experi-
ence in a caring environ-
ment. Starting in 1914 with
an animal collection that
consisted of one red deer
fawn, the Jacksonville Zoo
and Gardens has grown to
house more than' 1,500 rare
and exotic animals and over
1,000 unique plant species.
The Jacksonville Zoo is a
non-profit organization and
is an accredited member of
the American Zoo and
Aquarium Association
(AZA). It is open year-
round, seven days a week, 9
a.m. 5 p.m. and is located,
on Jacksonville's north side
at 370 Zoo Parkway, one-

Florida's wildlife legacy initiative

takes top priority


Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) Chairman Rodney Bar-
reto announced recently "This
state's wildlife conservation ef-
forts have to be the best in the
world." He said Florida's role
as a model for other states and
countries carries that obliga-
tion, which is why the FWC's
Wildlife Legacy Initiative will
be a chief areaof emnpliasis in
2006.
"Florida's economy is intrin-
sically tied to its natural re-
sources," Barreto said. "Out-
door recreation and other busi-
nesses related to fish and
wildlife pour more than $34
billion annually into Florida's


economy. Florida's natural re-
sources attract 76.8 million vis-
itors a year and they have a $57
billion impact on this state's
economy. When we conserve
our natural resources, we pro-
tect our state's economy," he
said.
*The initiative is a new pro-
gram to conserve all wildlife
for future generations. This ef-
fort will 'launch Florida's
Wildlife Legacy Initiative, an
action plan that creates partner-
ships for wildlife conservation
across the state. It includes
roughly $2.5 million each year
in federal funding to support
partnership projects and acti-
vate the action plan.

"Florida's Wildlife Legacy
Initiative is one of our agency's
highest priorities. It represents
the most comprehensive con-
servation plan ever developed,"
Barreto said. "It is a non-regu-
latory and incentive-based ap-
proach that is the result of an
alliance of individuals and
groups with a stake in how well
Florida manages its resources
in the years to come."
The initiative, in partnership
with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service, will fund numerous
projects that make clear, on-
the-ground contributions to
helping our wildlife. It funded
$2.6 million for 2005 grants.
Commissioner Richard Cor-
bett said "A good example of
what the initiative can accom-
plish is the $300,000 grant, to
be awarded later this year, to
fund upland restoration. It will
focus on prescribed burning
and other management needs
on pine and grassland habitats
statewide."
Wildlife managers say that
project will involve private and
public landowners to benefit
such wildlife as bobwhite
quail, painted buntings, fox
squirrels, tree frogs and box
turtles.
"The initiative is a joint ef-
fort between many state agen-
cies and private organizations,"
Barreto said. "This is a win-
win situation for Florida.
Commerce, clean air and clean
water, and the health and
lifestyle of Floridians "will ben-
efit from what Florida's
Wildlife Legacy Initiative will
accomplish. The whole coun-
try will benefit, because Flori-
da is a world leader in fish,
wildlife, and natural resource
management."
Barreto said the ambitious
new program will keep com-
mon species common and
work to conserve them now -
before they become too rare or
costly to protect.

W Ac -
cording to
Dr. Wade, AVID
stands for Ameri-
can Veterinary
Identification De-
*vice. "AVID pioneered the
development of Radio Frequency
Identification (RFID) for animals.
While HORSEtrac, founded by
AVID in the late 80s, is the recovery
network that utilizes the electronic
microchip to help in disasters, theft
and to reunite horses with their own-
ers," he said. AVID Equine and
HORSEtrac, along with the original
PETtrac global network, established
AVID as a worldwide leader in effi-
cient databased animal recovery.
"We encourage all, horse owners to
have their horses microchipped. This
precaution will help to identify any
horse that may become displaced


during storms and hurricanes," said
Dunn. "The AVID micro chip can be
read by most scanners worldwide.
Plus, it can't be erased and is guaran-
teed for life," she said.
"When the chip is scanned by law
enforcement officials, disaster work-
ers or veterinarians, a phone call goes
into HORSEtrac, the 24 hour disaster
and recovery network for horses. The
registered owner information is im-
mediately available, However, it is,
not a GPS tracking., device," said
Dunn. '
'he event will be sponsored by
North Florida Horse Rescue
(NFHR), North Florida Arabian
Horse Club (NFAHC), AVID Equine
and HORSEtrac, Ravenwood Farm
and HorsesintheSouth.com. For more

NAVY/Snap-On Chevy.
"That was one of the
wildest races I've ever been
a part of. We by no means
had a car good enough to
end up with the win, but I
drove my heart out to keep
the car up there. I guess it
was just meant to be."
With a handful of laps re-
maining, the outcome was
anything but certain.
Mark McFarland ducked
under Huffman on a restart.
With neither driver giving
an inch, the lead duo bar-
reled off into Turn 3. Mc-
Farland's momentum car-
ried him up the track and
into Huffman.
As the pair struggled to
regain control, Randy Gen-
try, running third at the,
time, dove to the inside and
took the top spot on Lap
246, but Matt Carter's spin
on the next lap erased Gen-
try's sizable lead and set up
a green-white-checkered
finish.
Gentry, driver of the No.
19 HarrisonsWorkwear.com
Chevy, was less than a mile
awayfrom a breakthrough
win when his Chevy died
on the backstretch under the
caution, giving the lead,
and win, back to Huffman.
"It was great to put on a
sho\x like that in front o
capacity c'ro d." aid Tony
Cox, USAR series director.
"South Georgia Motorsports


Park is a great venue for the
Hooters Pro Cup Series.
With a year of seasoning,
the track should put on
even a better race for the
fans and drivers this time
around."
If the first race of the
season was any indication,
the South Georgia 250 pre-
sented by Astro Exterminat-
ing & Termidor on Satur-
day, March 11, should be a
barnburner. No less than
five drivers had cars capa-
ble of winning the Natural-
ly Fresh 250 at USA (Fla.)
Int'l Speedway on Feb. 25.
And if you add in the fact
that four Hooters-Pro Cup
champions will be in the
field on Saturday, the no-
holds-barred gala should be
one for the ages.

The traditional pro spring test and tune has flourished since

1999; Move to Valdosta, Ga., promises largest-ever event


It all began with a public rela-
tions firm hoping to impress the
new client. That was the starting
point for the Eastern Spring Test
Nationals presented by Torco's
CompetitionPlus.com as the pre-
miere professional test and tune
sessions on the eastern seaboard.
The event has traveled from Dar-
lington, SC., to Petersburg, Va.,
before settling in its southern-
most home of Valdosta, Ga., for
this year's event.
Event coordinator and Torco's
CompetitionPlus.com founder
Bobby Bennett has watched the
event through its ups and downs
and is excited about the new
home at South Georgia Motor-
sports Park.
"It all started with David John-
son in 1999," Bennett said. "I had
just signed Darlington Dragway
as my first corporate client for my
Harley Communications firm and
David called me to organize an
event. He wanted to put together
an event just weeks before the
IHRAWintemationals. The game
plan was to give racers free test-
ing in exchange for participating
in a special 'Chicago Style' com-


petition on Saturday.
"We packed the place full and
we knew there was something to
this. Unfortunately the last two
cars of the evening crashed but all
people could talk about was the
show they had watched. I thought
to myself, 'All of that for a test
session?"
The event was originally called
the Groundhog Warm-up and the
IHRA came to Bennett with the
idea of moving the event to Vir-
ginia Motorsports Park where it
was renamed the Spring Open.
By this time, Bennett and his
group of freelancers, Roger
Richards and Brian Wood had de-
veloped Torco's Competition-
Plus.com into a respected source
amongst Internet drag racing
magazines.
"We had growing pains with
the move to VMP and we found
we had an enemy that we didn't
really have in Darlington -
weather," Bennett said. "In 2002,
I can remember leaving the track
on Wednesday thinking no one
was going to show up and the
next day we had cars backed up
all the way to the main highway


about a half-mile. I remember
seeing that line and saying words
I don't say today."
Indeed, the weather produced
70-degree temperatures and a
weekend that shattered every
record the IHRAhad in Pro Mod-
ified and Pro Stock. The years
that followed produced re-
spectable showings but it became
clear the weatherman was no ally.
"I think our car count was off
about 60 cars last year from the
previous one because of the
weather," Bennett said, shaking
hishead. "In the interest of fair re-
porting we had 65 in 2004. 1 think
last year was the only time I had
ever witnessed snow, rain, wind
and sun in a drag racing weekend.
I fully expected a tornado and
hurricane to show up by Sunday.
Needless to say, the first car down
the track crashed because the guy
shifted into reverse and that just
set the tone for the entire event."
Bennett had planned to discon-
tinue the event but changed his
mind after a mid-summer conver-
sation with Shad Dean, General
Manager for South Georgia Mo-
torsports Park.


"Shad is an incredibly positive
person," Bennett said. "The more
we talked the more convinced I
became that we still had a good
thing. All we needed was a great
facility and a part of the country
that was conducive to the condi-
tions we needed.
"I am excited and our team at
Torco's CompetitionPlus.com is
as well. We have the opportunity
to have some fun while providing
the racers with an excellent venue
to prepare for the NHRA Gator-
nationals and the IHRA Texas
Nationals two weeks later.
"Of course, we have a venue
that provides drag racing fans that
couldn't normally go to a nation-
al event to see their favorite stars
in a more relaxed atmosphere."
Over 120 entries have pre-en-
tered for the event. A full listing
can be accessed at
http://www.competitionplus.com
/2006_03/estn news.html.
The Fast News Network and
Drag Race Central will provide
coverage of this event for the
fourth consecutive year. Same
day coverage will be available at

Sunday was Geoff May's day
at historic Daytona International
Speedway. .
May captured two of the four
American Sportbike Racing As-
sociation finals during the final
day of the CCS/ASRA weekend.
The M4 EMGO Suzuki rider
from Gainesville, Ga., captured
the 15-lap SuperBike final and
the 10-lap SpeedScreen Expert
Unlimited Grand Prix final and
finished fourth in the 15-lap
SportBike final.
In the first ASRA event of the
day the SuperBike final -
Yamaha factory rider Jason DiS-
alvo dominated the event but as
expected pulled off the track on
the last lap before taking the
checkered flag. DiSalvo's entry
in the race was for testing pur-
poses *for next week's Daytona
200 ByHFnda." .
DiSalvo's withdrawal opened
the door for May to secure the


8.063-second victory while
Michael Barnes nipped Jeff
Wood for second place.
In the Speedcreen Unlimited
GP, May was able to earn a
.20.945-second victory over
Roberto Pietri and Eric Wood.
In the final event of the day -
the SportBike final May had to
hold off Jeff Wood to the win the
race, but was set back three posi-
tions for being over the limit in
post-race dyno testing. Wood
was awarded the victory.
Overall for the CCS/ASRA
weekend, May won six of the
eight races he entered.
"I've been training all winter
and that's made all the difference
in the world," May said. "This is
my second year on the team. The
tire development has come a long
way. I just came into this \\ eek-
end with a tremefidous amount of
confidence. I think that helped
propel me to the front." .

Martha and Lottie, they ran
their own family farm grow-

and raising pigs, cattle and
chickens. The sisters worked
in the kitchen to make cakes,
pies and other baked goods,
and also excelled at crocheting
and selling Afghans. While
most of the items were for sale
to support the farm, some of
them were displayed in county
fairs, earning ribbons and
praise for their hard work. The

Ceryak also expressed great
concern about the direction'
that state mandates seem to be

the past several years seem to
be in place to erode public con-

stated. "Schools have been
mandated to address many.of.
the social problems of our soci-

funding or tools to do so and
then have been told they are
failing at their task. Our job
should be to educate our chil-

.supports need to be in place to
work collaboratively with
schools to address other issues
that children and families have
so we can all work together to
produce hard-Working, educat-

at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park THIS WEEKEND


Springtime means music at
Spirit of the Suwannee Music
Park and this weekend is no ex-
ception. While springtime has
not -"officially" arrived yet,
breezy mornings, warm after-


they begin tutoring the chil-
dren some of them do not
speak or understand any Eng-
lish. They have seen major
improvements in students'
English skills. she said.
Washington said it's an ad-
vantage that she and Ro-
manchuck do not speak Span-
ish.
"We can't cater to students
when they don't know a cer-
tain word. This way, they
learn English faster," Wash-
ington said. "We have people
stationed at our schools who
speak Spanish if we run into
difficulties, or we can always'
reach Mrs. Torres, who is
bilingual." -
Torres recruits students for
the program as she sees His-
panic residents around town-.
However, not all Hispanics
are eligible. They must be mi-
grant workers in Suwannee
County, and not all migrant
workers are necessarily His-
panic. she said.
Those who are eligible for
the program have a variety of
services available to them.
"Whatever the family' needs
I attend to. If the family says,
"My child's having problems
with vision," I try to set up an
appointment and take them
where they need to go," Torres
said.
First grade teacher Stacey
Bullock, who has a student in
her class Washington tutors
for 45 minutes each day, said
she and Washington work
closely to .implement class-
room skills. Though Washing-


noons and cool nights mean
spring at the Park. This week-
end's feature is Sun Country
Jamboree, a production of
some of the top musicians and
vocalists in North Florida per-


ton assists in math when nec-
essary, she primarily focuses
on implementing reading
skills.
"My students take DIBELS,
which is a diagnostic test to
measure reading skills, four
times a year," Bullock said.
"In the three times we've tak-
en this test, I've seen contin-
ued improvement in my mi-
grant student. The student's
confidence level and learning
strategies to be a better prob-
lem solver and reader have
improved."
High school teacher Sher-
wood Boatright, who has a
student tutored by Ro-
manchuck. said Romanchuck
primarily focuses on helping
the student study for class-
room tests.
"The student was very lim-
ited in English but now has a
better understanding of the'
language," Boatright said.
Washington said the pro-
gram boosts students confi-
dence in the classroom, be-.
cause they often tend to be shy
and, withdrawn since they
don't know much English.
"They're all eager to learn,
and they try so hard to master
the skills," Washington said..
"They are so grateful for
anything. you do for them,"
Romanchuck said. "Of
course, my older ones, they
can make you laugh. They're
real witty."

evening
Get ready for an "evening of
impressions" when Sharon
Owens performs as "Barbra
Streisand" and Barry St. Ives
performs his side splitting im-
personations at 7:30 p.m., Fri-
day, March 10, in the Alfonso
Levy Performing Arts Center
at Lake City Community Col-
lege (LCCC). This is the last
Lyceum performance of the
season sponsored by First Fed-
eral Savings Bank of Florida.
Owens began touring all
over the world as a
singer/dancer, opening for acts
such as the Lettermen, the
Mandrell Sisters, Willie Nel-
son, Loretta Lynn and many
more country acts.
Although performing was
Owens' dream, so was getting
an education. She earned her
bachelor of arts degree in hu-
manities and vocal music from
the University of South Florida
and is still pursuing her, mas-
ter's in education from Chap-
man University.
In 1990, Owens continued to
work her way through college
by singing and dancing at the
Busch Gardens theme park in
Tampa, while she also 'did
comlnercial studio work for
Sea World and performed in
musical theater. Her college
summers were spent touring
the United States and England.
Owens' career as a Barbra
Streisand Impersonator/Trib-
ute artist began in 1992 when
she moved to Los Angeles and
began singing "Streisand" in
dinner theaters and cabaret
night clubs. Her uncanny re-
semblance and vocal ability to
sing Streisand started her ca-
reer as a "Legends" performer.
Most recently Sharon has
turned to television where she
was crowned the winner of the
hit television show on Fox net-
work called "Performing As
..." Her national success has
created a whirlwind.of"'Barbra,
fans" waiting to see Owens'
famous tribute. Since her tele-
vision success, she has been
seen on Access Hollywood,

Abandoned mercy


Mercy, according to Webster is, ...
compassion or forbearance shown es-
pecially to an offender ... "When Jon-
ah communed with God from the
whale's belly he said, "They that ob-
serve lying vanities forsake their own
mercy" (Jonah 2:8). Today, as in
:4. Noah's day (Matthew 24:37) the Lord
David H. Matier is extending mercy to mankind. In
Noah's time He bare with their folly
120 years before He sent the flood upon the earth (Gene-
sis 6:3-"All that was in the dry land died" Genesis 7:22).

Idolaters (worshippers of false gods) in Jonah's day took
Jehovah's extension of mercy lightly. They worshipped
the creations of their hands instead of the True and Living
God. Many today are, in reality, doing the same thing. In-
stead of worshipping gods of man's choosing they wor-
ship "things!" "Things" to be bought, "things" to be
achieved, "things" to impress and the list could go on-
and-on. Materialism is the god of the U.S.! While many are
bowing at the altar of this god they ... forsake their own
mercy."
God extended his mercy while he commissioned Noah
to announce the impending judgment over a period of 120


years before the flood. It has been approximately 2,000
years since the New Testament revealed the Lord's second
Coming and The Judgment to come (Revelation 20:11-15).
The Bible states that no one knows when He will come
back except the Father (Matthew 24:36-Watch out for
charlatans who set dates/times) but it is about 2,000 years
closer then it was! You don't know how much longer God
will continue to extend His mercy to you. Are you ready
to meet Jesus?

tently show that the excellence of

tomer service and leadership,"

Howard finds


Kimberly Howard was looking
for a career after her youngest child
started daycare. With some encour-
agement from her husband, she de-
cided to give the field of real estate
a try.
So in September, 2005 Howard
began taking real estate courses
and eventually took and passed her
test
"I needed the flexibility with
kids," Howard said. But more than
flexibility, she needed something
that allowed her to work with peo-
ple doing something she would


find challenging and enjoyable.
"I'd heard good things and
heard Mr. Poole was a real nice
man to work for, and Poole Realty
has a great reputation," Howard
said.
Howard -immediately jumped
into the real estate game.
"I have one listing, and I'm
showing some homes," Howard
.said.
And her favorite part of real es-
tate is the people. "I like talking to
people and finding out what
they're interested in and seeing if I

can find it," Howard said. '"I like
being on the search. I like to try to
narrow down options and find
what they're looking for."
And while the hunt is an enjoy-
able part of her newfound career,
Howard said it all comes back tq
the people. "I want people to walk
away from working with me
knowing I worked as hard as I pos-
sibly could, that Iwasn'tpushed for
time, and I made sure they got
what they wanted," Howard said.
"I want them to get to look at avail-
able properties and not feel pushed

into anything."
Howard prides herself on per-
sonal attention. Taking people to
show them available properties
rather than letting them fend -for
themselves is important because
she believes the personal touch
goes a long way. I want to make
sure they don't get lost and stressed
out looking for the places,"
Howard said. "I don't just give
them a map and say go find it"
Her biggest goal right now is to
establish a reputation for herself
and earn referrals from clients she


serves. Although she a

The spring


of life
\


For everything there is a season,
and a time for every matter
under heaven: a time to he born,
R.S. dl (I timel i dtie.
R.S.\: Ecclcsiostcs.,:1-2


After the long cold night of winter,
spring comes as the year's dawn.
In the midst of winter, it seems as
if life is literally being pulled back
into the Earth, receding from the
surface of our planet. But each
year spring inevitably arrives, and
life surges once again, bursting
out from the tips of trees and the
earth itself in vibrant greens and
yellows that can only signal that
life is waxing once again. Life on
earth has a rhythm to it, a pulsing
cycle of waxing and waning tides.
The sun rises; the sun sets. The
sap rises; the sap falls. Flowers
bloom and flowers fade. We inhale
and we exhale. Growth and decay,
like our breathing and the beating
of our hearts, is a surge of life, and
then a receding of life. Perhaps
what we love about spring is that
we can literally see and feel the
surge of life. The earth is again
coming back to life, and as a part
of nature, we feel once again that
bloom of youth which adds zest
and vigor to our own lives. Spring
is the season for those who love
life. Thank God for making each of
uis a part Lof this beautiful cycle of
lii fe.

Take the plunge: A pool buying guide


Pool ownership is made easy with these helpful purchasing tips


(ARA) A backyard pool is a clear
reflection of its owner's lifestyle. But that's
just the beginning.
In fact, a survey sponsored by the National
Spa & Pool Institute (NSPI), the world's
largest trade organization of pool and spa
companies, found that most pool owners use
their "liquid assets" for relaxation. Others
say that their pools are convenient and
private places for exercise and physical
therapy. And some folks simply see their
pools as places to gather with family and
friends. But they all know that a pool will
add beauty and value to a home.
There's an aboveground pool or an in-
ground model to meet most any desire and .
any budget. Whether you're buying or
building the pool of your dreams, this handy
guide will help you make a splash.

Think it through
When choosing or designing a pool, think
about your lifestyle, any special design
needs, maintenance and safety
considerations, and your budget. How you
live and how you want to use your pool will
determine its type, size and shape, as well as
the landscaping and accessories you will
want. And know that there's a pool to meet
virtually any want or need.
Get the pool that's right for you. If you're
looking for a convenient place to exercise,
then a lap pool or a swim-in-place model
might be what you need. Will your pool be a
source of entertainment for your children? If
so, then a large, fun, multi-purpose deck and
additional safety features are in order. A
natural-looking pool with entertainment
amenities, special lighting and exotic plants
can transform your backyard into a private
paradise-- perfect for elegant gatherings. If
you want a pool you can take with you when
you move, then a portable, aboveground pool
deserves a closer look.
Consider the big picture. When planning
your pool, keep in mind your neighbors, the
landscape and climate as well as local
regulations. Do you want to use your pool
year-round or just for the summer months?
Will you want to heat the pool? New, high-
tech, energy-saving systems and accessories
help keep costs to a minimum. What about
lighting, audio systems and the pool
surround? Also, do local regulations mandate


specific safety measures? If so, you'll need
to adapt your pool design to accommodate
them.

Inground pools
There are several options when it comes to
*inground pools. Here are some brief
descriptions:
An inground pool with a vinyl liner is
supported by a frame of steel, aluminum,
polymer, concrete or wood.
A fiberglass pool usually is made of a full
fiberglass molded shell, but some combine
concrete or other materials with the
fiberglass.
A concrete pool is made of durable,
seamless sprayed concrete over steel
reinforcing rods; these can be built in a
variety of custom shapes.
The cost for an inground pool starts at
about $7,000, but that can vary widely
depending on geographic region, size of the
pool and the degree of customization.
Decking, landscaping, safety equipment, and
.such amenities as automated maintenance
and heating systems will cost extra.
Aboveground pools
An aboveground pool offers loads of fun
and relaxation and often you can be
swimming the same day you purchase your
pool. There is a wide range of sizes designed
to suit almost any yard. Traditional
aboveground pools support a vinyl liner on a
round or oval frame of aluminum or steel.
With prices ranging from $1,500 to $5,000,
family-size, aboveground pools are quite
affordable.
Aboveground pools install quickly and
easily. Larger ones may require professional
installation, but a relatively handy person can
set up some of the new models in about a
day. In fact, some pools can be up and
enjoyed within hours of purchase. Some are
even expandable, a particularly useful feature
for growing families. Plus, with an
aboveground pool, if you move you 'can take
it with you!
As for looks, the inherent simplicity of an
aboveground pool's design makes it easy to
integrate it into any landscape plan. Creative
decking and landscaping make these pools
extremely attractive. In fact, if you look at
photos of pools in home magazines and pool-
design brochures, you might have a hard


time distinguishing
the aboveground
pools from the
inground models.
Getting Down to
Business
Find a dealer or
builder with the
help of the-
National Sp & .
Pool Institute, on j '
the Web at
www.nspi.org, or.
by calling (800) 1 1
323-3996. NSPI
members adhere to
a code of business
ethics and pledge
to provide
customer
satisfaction.,
Always check a
company's background and references. Ask
how long they have been in business. Is the
company a member in good standing of other
business organizations in addition to NSPI,
such as a local Better Business Bureau? Find
out if the dealer handles .service as well as
sales. Have the personnel received any of
NSPI's specialized training or earned NSPI
certifications, such as the CSE Certified
Service Professional, orthe CBP Certified
Building Professional designations?
Check several sources of financing to
make sure you're getting the best deal.
Dealers and builders can often assist with
identifying financing options, so ask here
first.
Get everything in writing and review all
your contracts carefully before signing.
Make certain you understand exactly what is
included in the purchase price. 'Get all the
specifics on your pool as well as delivery
and/or installation.
Ask for a warranty for the pool and its
equipment. Be sure you fully understand that
warranty -- what is and isn't covered.
If you're building a pool, obtain at least
three written quotes from builders specifying
exactly what equipment and materials they
will use. Check references. Call the Better
Business Bureau. And know that some areas
require builders to be licensed and insured.
Also, look for the NSPI logo -- that will tell


you if the builders are members of the
organization and committed to upholding its.
high standards.
Make sure your builder follows
construction and installation practices
published by NSPI and that have been
approved by the American National
Standards Institute (ANSI).
Be sure to include in your budget the costs
for any landscaping or other poolside
amenities such as lighting, water features and
audio systems.
Prepare a master plan if you're making any
landscape changes. You can set up some
aboveground pools with the aid of a video
provided by the manufacturer. But if your
model requires professional installation, be
sure the installer adheres to all local safety
codes.
Save some money. You often can save
substantial sums simply by getting your pool
project under way before or after the busy
summer season.

Plan for minimal maintenance
An ongoing revolution in pool-care
technology is making maintenance easier
than ever. Automating your pool will let you
spend far more time enjoying it than
maintaining it.
Automation saves time and money. With
automated systems, it takes little more than a
touch of a button or a flip of a
switch to cover or uncover
/ the pool, clean it, control the
temperature and dipense the ,
chemicals. Wireless systems
are especially easy to install.
If you don't even want to
do that much, service
technicians who have
received training through
NSPI are a short phone call or
mouse click away. If you
decide to use a pool
maintenance service, look for
the NSPI logo. And ask for a
CSP Certified Service
Professional -- that way
you'll be sure to get someone
who is well trained and
I highly skilled.


Introducing E-Z Pay!

A new way to pay,



as you play.
_fr more information log on to wlldadventures.net


Play it safe
Make your pool as safe as
possible witli layers of
protection. Self-closing and
self-latching gates and doors,
window latches, alarms, good
lighting, portable or wireless
telephones and safety covers
are all excellent, sensible
protection devices.
Check with your state and
local governments for any
barrier requirements and
codes specific to your area.
Pool safety covers which
meet the American Society
for Testing and Materials
(ASTM International) safety
standards will provide an
added layer of protection.
They also cut down on day-
to-day operating costs by
reducing heat loss, chemical
usage and water evaporation.
And always keep in mind:
There is no substitute for
constant responsible adult
supervision of children and
pets.
Careful thought and
prudent planning can make
your entry into pool
ownership as effortless and
enjoyable as possible. For
more information, check with
NSPI at (800) 323-3996 or
www.nspi.org for brochures
on pool planning,
maintenance and safety.

Potential water bans mean gardeners need to be smart about watering


(ARA) With water bans in effect in several states last.
year and another dry year being predicted, gardeners
need to be smart about watering. When it comes to
watering, how you do it can be more important than if
you do it. In fact, improper watering can do more harm
than good, and there are many things gardeners can do
to avoid having to water at all.
Here are five tips from Kathy LaLiberte, a gardening
expert from Gardener's Supply of Burlington, Vt., that
will allow gardeners to have an abundant harvest,
beautiful flowers and green lawn even if rain is scarce.
1. Prep your soil. Plants need a continuous supply of
moisture, which they extract from the soil particles that
surround tiny root hairs. If soil is too sandy, water rushes
away; if there's too much day, water collects and can
drown roots by keeping them from getting oxygen. To
create a rich, crumbly, water-retentive soil, work plenty
of organic matter such as composted cow manure or
leaves, peat moss, or green manures into beds before you
plant. Be sure to prep beds at least 18 inches deep and
break up any compacted soil so roots can grow freely in
search of moisture over a wide area.
2. Use mulch. Planting thickly and using mulches helps
shade the soil and keep available moisture from
evaporating. Chipped bark, straw, grass clippings, cocoa
hulls and compost are all effective as mulch. However,
when using bark or anything else that does not break
down readily, be sure to apply no more than an inch or it
may keep water from percolating down to the soil where
it's needed. Mulches made from organic materials add
valuable nutrients to the soil as they degrade.
3. Plant appropriately. Consider planting varieties that
are drought resistant and appropriate to your geographic
area and climate. In addition, duster plants that have
similar moisture needs. For example, many herbs, plants
with hairy or gray leaves, and sun-loving perennials such
as coreopsis and yarrow do better in a supny, fairly dry
bed. Keep moisture-loving plants like roses and classic
perennials such as delphiniums and peonies together in a
bed that can be watered more frequently.
4. Minimize wind. Wind can suck moisture out of soil
and plant leaves faster than the blazing sun. Plant or set
up wind breaks that allow the sun in, but shield plants
from strong winds in exposed garden areas.
5. Measure moisture. Before turning on the sprinkler,
determine how much water your plants really need.
Especially if you've been following the advice above, you
might be surprised how much moisture your beds retain,
even when it hasn't rained for a week or more. Dig down
into the top 12 inches of soil and make sure it's dry before
you water.If you do water with a sprinkler, put a bucket
out to measure how much water is falling onto the
ground.
Water in the morning so plants have the resources they
need to face the noontime sun. Watering in the morning
also helps reduce fungus and disease problems, because
the foliage has a chance to dry before nightfall.

The following tips will also help you conserve water:
1. Water infrequently but deeply. Roots grow where
the moisture is. If you only water the top couple of inches
of soil, that's where the roots will stay. If you water
deeply, they'll extend their reach and be more able to
withstand occasional dry spells in the future. Be sure to
water long enough for moisture to reach at least a foot
into the soil.
2. Put the water where it's needed. Plants take up water
with their roots, so this is where the water should go.
Build small dams around the base of your vegetable
plants to act as catch basins, and direct the hose or
watering can onto the ground, not over the top of your
plants. Apply water slowly so it soaks into the soil, rather
than rushing away over the top.
3. Choose a water-wise sprinkler for watering.
Sprinklers can waste a lot of water through evaporation
and by scattering moisture to areas that may not need it.
There are a variety of water-wise sprinklers available, but
also consider using soaker hoses for beds and water
spikes for individual plants.
4. Weed, wait, cultivate. Reduce competition for water
resources by keeping your garden well-weeded. Wait
until plants show signs of distress, such as limp leaves,
before watering; most plants will quickly recover. Break
up compacted soil so water will absorb into it rather than
run off.
Following even some of these good watering practices
can reduce water consumption and time consumption by
as much as 50 percent. This savings is particularly
important when hot weather arrives and many
communities begin implementing water bans.
Here are some other products from Gardener's Supply


that can help keep your garden green while conserving
water.
To get water directly to the roots, use Gardener's
Supply's Aqua Cones. They provide an economical
method to get moisture directly where and when it's
needed. Recycled plastic soda bottles hold the water and
the flow can be adjusted for any type of soil. They're also
useful for plants such as roses that are prone to mildew
or black spot if the leaves get wet. Aqua Cones cost
$12.50 for six or $20.00 for 12.
WaterWells are a new product from Australia where
professional landscapers plant trees in large wells to

Preparing students for test day

How parents can help students improve test scores


(ARIA) With high-stakes tests
affecting children's grades academic
progress, and even the e% aluation of
teacher performance and ratings of
schools, parents play a crucial role in
ensuring "test w ise,'" successful
children. Low performance on a test is
not always due to lack of knowledge.
Test anxiety can destroy a child's
concentration and confidence while
unfamiliarity with rest-taking strategies
may result in misinterpreting questions
or bad time management.
While some schools gi\e students test
taking practice to help the children
become comfortable with directions and
test format, often the constraints of
instruction may not leave sufficient
time for truly effective practice. The
U.S. Department of Education
recommends that you "ask teacher s to
suggest activities for you and your child
to do at home to help prepare for tests
and improve your child's understanding
of schoolwvork ." Whether a student
performs at the top of the class or in
remedial programs, all students benefit
from test preparation.

How Parents can Help
Find out whether youi child's school
regularly provides this type of practice
or will do so if your child needs it. To
meet this need, many schools across the
country use resources like the Take
Home lest Ready reading and math
practice series for grades one through
eight. Whether purchased with school
funds or by the PTA. Take Home Test
Ready provides one resource that
parents can easily use with their
children.
For each grade 1 8. reading practice
books contain five illustrated reading
selections, both nonfiction and fiction.
The passages and accompanying
multiple-choice questions reflect the
latest in testing formats, so children can
practice a variety of reading strategies
as they respond to the model questions.
The Math series books, I 8 hate

strategies identified by the National
Council of Teaching Mathematics:
number sense and operations,
estimation, measurement, geometry.
algebia and data interpretation The
fifth lesson serves as a final review,
containing an increased number of both
computation problems and word
problems.
Parents can also look on their state',s
department of education Web site for
possible access to past proficiency tests.
Search for them using the keyNords,
"released tests."
Practicing at home provides children
with a stress-free environment in which
to hone their test-taking skills.
\\ hate\er niatei ials you choose, begin
by discussing with your child why the\
are completing practice tests or
activities and also talk about tips for
preparing and successfully completing
any test. 1The Take Home Test Ready
booklets have the following tips and
strategies printed on their inside front
co\ er and outside co\ er respectively :

5. Use test-taking tips in your
everyday school \ork.
6. Think positively.
7. Plan to do your best.
8. Practice using breathing to calm
yourself.
9. Do not w orrn about the test.
10. Remember It's only a test!
Once you and Nour child have

ensure that
nutrients and
water get to the
roots without
running off.
WaterWells give
your plants the
same benefit
without all the
digging. They hold
water, fertilizer
and mulch to
prevent wasteful
runoff, keep out
weeds, and protect
trees from the
string trimmer.
They "unzip" for
use on both new
and established .."r."
plantings. Made of/
recycled plastic, .
they are excellent
for slopes and poor
soils. Water Wells
cost $19.95 for a set
of three and
measure 19 inches
in diameter and 7
1/2 inches high.
Self-watering
patio gardens, window boxes and hanging planters use
water effectively by watering from the roots up and are a
great way to save water and time. A built-in reservoir
holds up to four gallons of water and fertilizer so plants
get all the moisture and food they need, easily and
consistently. Self-watering patio and hanging garden
containers range in size and style and cost from $14.95 to
$59.95.
The Noodlehead sprinkler has 12 individual nozzles
that can be positioned independently to direct water
precisely where it's needed up to 15 feet away. It's
especially effective for watering irregular beds, and in
windy areas since the nozzles can be positioned to aim
low, directly onto the soil. The Noodlehead sprinkler is 3
1/4 inches in diameter and costs $19.95.
Gardener's Supply has offered the Hydro-Grow soaker
hose system since 1984, and its easy, efficient
performance has made it a customer favorite. A new
mini soaker hose is perfect for perennial beds. It's
available in 50 and 100-foot lengths and comes with end
caps'and hose fittings. The mini soaker hose is less bulky
and perfect for weaving through raised beds or perennial


gardens. Soaker hoses work most effectively on relatively
level ground, for runs up to 100 feet. If lack of rainfall is a
problem in your area, or if you are often on water
rationing, a soaker hose is a great solution. The Hydro-
Grow hose costs $19.95 for 50 feet or costs $37.95 for 100
feet. The mini soaker hose costs $11.95 for 25 feet.
Commercial landscapers rely on Terra-Sorb to protect
plants in heat-stressed, drought-prone areas like city
parks and traffic medians. This nontoxic gel absorbs up
to 200 times its weight in water, and then releases it
gradually as plants need it. And because Terra Sorb is
potassium-based instead of sodium-based, it breaks
down into fertilizer instead of soil-damaging salts. This
environmentally-friendly mix is offered exclusively by
Gardener's Supply. Terra-Sorb costs $10.95 for a one-
pound jar and $39.95 for a five-pound jar. One pound
would cover 100 square feet in the garden, and one
teaspoon is needed per gallon of soil in containers.

Helping your baby to sleep better
Helping your baby to sleep better


By Elizabeth Pantley

(ARA) It's a biological reality
and a tiring facet of new
parenthood: babies wake up
frequently during the night.
Luckily, there are a number of
ways that you can help your baby
sleep better.

Sleeping noises
Babies make many noises during
the night, and not all of these
noises mean they need attention.
Some of these are sleeping noises,
and though your baby may be


wi~rinif'SW f


grunting or whimpering, he isn't
even fully awake. Often he is
transitioning between sleep cycles,
and if let alone will return to sleep
on his own. If your little one is
down the hallway and you're
listening in on the monitor, you
may find yourself making many
trips to the crib only to find that
he's still asleep, or even worse, you
may unknowingly be waking him
when you enter his room to check
on him.
Consider nestling your baby
beside you in a co-sleeping
bassinet like the Arm's Reach


patented attachment. You can stay
in your own bed while you listen to
his noises. When you wake up and
hear your baby's sounds, don't
immediately respond -- just wait
and listen. He may not need your
help to return to quiet sleep.
Therefore, when he doesn't fully
awaken, neither do you!
If your baby really is waking up,
he may just need your touch and
reassurance to go back to sleep --
simply reach over, pat him, rub
him or gently jiggle him and
murmur quiet shushing noises. This
may be all he needs to return to


sleep.
When a pat and a "shh" isn't
enough, your baby likely needs
to be fed. It's important to allow
him to remain in a sleepy state
and fall back to sleep quickly.
Simply pull him close to you for
feeding. Avoid unnecessary
diaper changes, don't turn on any
lights and don't play with him --
the goal is to help him fall back
to sleep quickly so that he will
develop longer night sleep spans.
With a little practice you'll
learn how to tell the difference
between your baby's awake


normally just about anywhere!

noises and sleepy noises.
Handling this appropriately
will encourage your baby to
sleep through the night much
sooner.

The secret to your
breastfed baby's all-night
sleep
Many babies develop a very
strong association between
breastfeeding and sleep. Often
babies head toward their first
birthday and are still waking
Mommy up multiple times in
the night to nurse.
If your baby is waking
every hour or two to
breastfeed, you can try to
solve this by moving him over
to his Arm's Reach Co-
Sleeper Bassinet after he is
done actively nursing, but
before he is totally asleep -
when his rate of sucking
changes to an intermittent
fluttery pace (which is more
for pacifying than
nourishment). Once you move
him he can fall asleep
independently. You can reach
over and pat or rub him as he
falls asleep if necessary.

A co-sleeping family's
best friend
Families who choose the
family bed as their infant's
primary sleeping place will
find that the-Arm's Reach
solves several of the typical
problems that arise from
exclusive co-sleeping;
naptime and making the
change to independent sleep
when the time is right.
The first benefit of the
Arm's Reach unit is how it
can help your baby to have
naptime independence. An
endless number of co-sleeping
mothers must sleep with their
babies for nearly every
naptime, since their little one
cannot sleep alone. This can
be frustrating for a mother
who doesn't want to take a
daily nap, has other children
to tend to, work to complete
or who just needs a little time
for herself. A baby will
welcome the familiar place
for naptime. (Just remember
to stay nearby or use a baby
monitor to keep an ear on
your baby.)

Preparing your baby for
independent sleep
The Arm's Reach Bedside
Co-Sleeper Bassinet is a
wonderful tool for preparing
your baby for independent
sleep. Moving your baby from
the family bed is best done
gradually, and a bedside
attachment is a wonderful first
step in independent sleep.
Your baby is still very close
by, can be easily tended in the
night, yet experience solitary
sleep that can prepare him for
the time when he'll have his
own bed.

Vacation with your baby
Since the Arm's Reach unit
folds up easily for traveling,
you'll find that it's a life-
saver when you're taking
baby on a vacation. Trips are
notorious sleep disrupters, but
bringing your baby's normal
sleeping place along with you
cani provide security and
comfort to allow him to sleep
easily in an unusual place.
Follow your usual bedtime
routine, no matter where you
are. If you bring along your
baby's regular bedding and
crib toys, and add a familiar
sound -- such as lullabies or a
white noise recording -- your
little one will be sleeping
