One man was hospitalized with multiple
stab wounds to his back while his alleged
assailant was jailed on one count of attempt-

Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
Landowners who live around a proposed
80-acre ATV campground and racetrack site
in northern Suwannee County that will be
open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. daily are cry-
ing foul over a zoning board hearing on the
issue they sa tihe\ were neier notified
about
But, the county says it has met all the re-
quirements and there is no law that says
they have to notify adjoining landowners or
nearby landowners.
During the zoning board meeting, the board
voted to approve the application of landown-
ers who said they wanted to satisfy their 20-
year-old son's lifetime dream by building the
campground and ATV racetrack one parcel of
land south of the Suwannee River and a
Suwannee River Water Management property.
The applicants for a special exception on land
zoned Ag 1, Enola and William Golightly,
said the property values around the racetrack
would actually increase because of the race-
track and primitive campground.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Dear Editor:
This letter is in reference to a special exception zoning change
made by Zoning Board on Feb. 23 on allowing a racetrack and
campground to go in business on parcels north of the county. I am
an adjacent land owner and I was not properly notified by the.
county. According to .the Land Development Regulations, the
Board of Adjustment is to give public notice thereof, as well as due
notice to all the parties involved.,
They did inform in writing to some of the land owners that were
north of ftus venture with a buffer of 40 acres, but failed to inform
me and I will be right next to the track. What I can not understand
was how I was overlooked when the other land owners are on sev-
en to 30 acres and mine is a 300 acre parcel. -
Sincerely,
Stacey Worth

Dear Editor,
I am writing in regards to the Special Exception recently passed
allowing an ATV/Dirt bike race track in my nice, quiet, safe com-
munity near the river.
Our community is stunned.
Just two years ago our community made it clear how we felt
about race tracks in the area when we fought a similar zoning
change. Now, an exemption that will decimate the way of life
we've so carefully chosen and developed has. slipped through.
The big question everyone has asked us is why we didn't do
something to stop it? We would have loved to. Regretfully, only se-
lect adjoining neighbors were notified with limited details. The
sign on the property sits on the end of a very narrow dirt road with
multiple blind turns that dead ends at the river, only two families
drive down there. The sign even had the wrong date on it up until
5 days before the meeting!
In the last two weeks two deaths have incurred in Gainesville on
ATV/Dirt bike race tracks. Who knows how many were injured.
Is the county planning to keep an ambulance available for this
track from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.? Who will pay for it? I sure hope no
one else in Suwannee County has need of an ambulance during
daylight hours.
In my earlier life I raced dirt bikes and from experience, I can
tell you, no one wants to live near an ATV/Dirt bike race track.
Don't let one 20-year-olds' dream override the dreams of the sur-
rounding community members we have worked so hard for. We
can never get back what we will lose if this track goes through for
the benefit of one.
Thank you for your time,
Brett Deutsch

Dear Editor:
The front page story about the ATV/dirt bike race track that was
approved by the zoning boaid in the Fort Union, neighborhood
took virtually everyone in that neighborhood by surprise. We be-
lieve the track owner successfully hid her intentions from her
neighbors, knowing that the last time a track was proposed for our
area approximately 100 neighbors showed up to protest it. The
property is near the end of a dead end road, so'virtually no neigh-
bors saw the zoning sign.
The plan calls for racing from 8 a.m. to 8-p.m. seven days a
week, with an estimated 450 carloads each week. Within a half
mile from the race track are two churches, a cemetery, the Suwan-
nee River (along with the Florida Wilderness Trail), and many
homes. The road leading to the track is a small dirt road on which
children often ride bikes and horses. None of the people associat-
ed with any of these interests, nor any families on the road, were
notified, nor were they mentioned in the hearing.
The property owners presented pages of information I consider
misleading to the zoning board in which they made claims that

such tracks raised adjoining property values and attracted wildlife.
Although the information was purported to be from various Web-
sites, the Website addresses had been removed from every page,
preventing anyone from finding the sources to check for veracity
,or context.
The property owner stated that having a race track had been her
son's dream for 12 years. What about the dreams of all the neigh-
bors who have worked a lifetime to save for their homes and re-
tirement? How many people:do ) ou kno% w\ho a.re clamoring to.
live next door to a race track?
We are asking the property owners and the county to do the right
thing, and have this matter brought up in full light rather than hav-
ing neighbors upset because their voice couldn't be heard because
they weren't notified. If they truly believed they were doing some-
thing for the community, this is how it should have been done, and
how we expect good neighbors to do it.
Caroline Coile

Dear Editor,
My family recently moved to Live Oak (Fort Union area) from
Fort Lauderdale. Our desire .was to escape the noise, pollution,
crowding and stress, which are common down south.
Unfortunately, it appears our dream is to be short-lived. One of
our neighbors has petitioned to put in a racetrack for 4 wheelers
that will be open to the public:
This is not a welcome change for our area.
As newcomers, we tolerated the occasional appearance of 4
wheelers. The end result of their visits is trash strewn about and
the unpaved road (the only access to our home) being tom up by
them doing "donuts" with their machines.
It is still to be determined if the letter of the law was met in the
notification process (I believe virtually no one was aware of this),
but it most certainly did not meet the spirit.
Suwannee County needs to grow but in a sensible and well-
planned fashion, neither piecemeal nor catering to special interests.
If this is any indication of what to expect from our zoning board,
it does not bode well for Suwannee County's future.
Rocky Stewart

Dear Editor:
On Thursday, Feb. 23, the Suwannee County Zoning Board con-
ducted a meeting at the Live Oak City Hall. On their agenda was
a proposal for a variance in land usage that was zoned agricultur-
al. The proposal was to allow the building of a motorcycle/ATV
race track. The 80-acre tract of land is located in the northern por-
tion of Suwannee County, north of CR 132, and very close to the
Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch.
A sizable gathering of people were in attendance supporting the
proposed zoning change. A very small group of local residents
were present to contest the zoning change.
Approximately 1.0 minutes into the proceedings it became very
apparent to me that the zoning board had already made up their
minds to grant the variance.
Testimony was given by the petitioner stating the construction
of the race track would have a positive impact upon Suwannee
County. How surrounding land values would not be affected or
could even increase in value. Do you really think that after this
track becomes operational that anyone would go to a real estate of-
fice and ask if they had any land for sale next to a noisy race track.
I think not!
Next, the board allowed those who were not in favor of the zon-
ing change to-state their thoughts. The main concern of those op-"
posed to the zoning change was the loss of property value and the
environmental noise pollution. Board chairman Tommie Jefferson
seemed to be amused by the pleas asking that the zoning change
be refused. I realized that all the pleadings were falling on deaf
ears.
Most of the people in attendance who opposed the zone change
had not become aware of the scheduled board meeting until the af-
ternoon of the meeting. It was pointed out by the board that all le-
gal requirements had been followed. A legal notice had been run in
the Suwannee Democrat, a sign had been posted on the effected
property site and a written notice had been sent to the effected res-


idents who lived within 300 feet of the proposed race track. What
the board did not take into consideration was the fact that proper-
ty owners who live within several miles of the race track will be
adversely effected also.
It was requested that out of common courtesy and fairness the
board postpone its vote on the issue until the local residents who,
willbe effected by the race track are contacted and allowed to tes-
tify. Jefferson rejected this request, stating he felt no further testi-
mony was needed. '.
The board voted unanunousli to allow the zoning chance. One
member of the board excused herself from the voting due to pos-
sible conflict of interest. She stated she had family members who
lived in the effected area.
By allowing this zoning change, the zoning board has placed
one person's personal financial gains far above the peace and tran-
quillity of hundreds of citizens of Suwannee County who will-be..
adversely effected by the change. These people, including myself,
purchased property in a part of the county that is zoned agricultur-,.
al. They wanted peace and quiet. After the construction of the race
track, that will come to an end. The track will be open from 8 a.m.
until 8 p.m. Now, half of pur life will be spent listening to unmuf-.
fled motorcycles and ATV's racing on the track. The peace and
quiet of country living will be no more.
After seeing this zoning change occur, I think it would be in the
best interest of all concerned, that the Board of County Comrnus-
sioners adopt an ordinatice and require all real I ,tate agencies who:
sell land in Suwannee County place the follow, ing notice on ihe
property listing:
"WARNING: Even though' the property you are considering
buying is zoned agricultural, there is always the possibility that the
Suwannee County Zoning Board could change the zoning classi-
fication and allow someone to build a race track in your back
yard."
Respectively,
Leon Gill Jr.


Dear Editor,
Please imagine 40 motorcycles all going full throttlel2 hours
per day seven days a week within hearing distance of your back-
yard. Then imagine a camping facility next to the racetrack to fill
the night with displeasing music and partying with alcohol al-,
lowed. This noise can be heard over two miles away.
These are the plans of one family in a rural community that has
for years prided itself in the quiet and serenity that can only be
found in such a rural setting.
On February 23 the Suwannee County Zoning Board agreed:."
with the one family. Not with the entire community of residents-."
and landowners who voiced their objections in no uncertain terms.
What led the board to this decision?
The zoning board is instructed by the comprehensive zoning
rules to address the affect this racetrack will have on public health,
safety, welfare, order, comfort, appearance, prosperity, access im-
pact, traffic flow and control, fire or catastrophe, compatibility
with existing land use, noise, glare, odor, dust, and smoke.
The board is further instructed that satisfactory provision and
arrangements have been made concerning the following matters:
The Existing Land use pattern
The impact on public roads
The impact on living conditions in the neighborhood
The impact upon traffic congestion or other public safe-
ty matters
The impact of the proposed use upon property values
The impact of the proposed use with regard to the scale
of needs of the neighborhood or the community
Again, the neighborhood of over a 2-mile radius is anxious to
know why the board failed to address each and.every one of these
issues.
The decision the zoning board has given on this proposed per-
mit is, if not illegal, at the very least morally reprehensible.
I believe that a full review by the elected ruling bodies of the
county be taken. If not that, then a legal appeal should be pursued.

Q How do I comb a wall?

surprised how easily you can create the same effect:
* First, apply a primer-sealer to the walls, tinted to match the color you plan to paint the walls.
* If you arc combing only one wall as ano accent, paint the other walls first.
* For the paint base on the wall to be combed, mix the color you used on the other walls with
white paint. (Combing will darken the color of a wall.) A 50/50 ratio is recommended.
However, if you choose to make your accent wall darker than the others, don't lighten your
wall paint.
* Tint a ready-mix glaze with universal tinting colors to match the color of the wall (see glaze
tinting instructions).
* After the paint has dried, brush the glaze over the entire wall.
* Allow the glaze to set about 10 minutes until the surface begins to look dull. Be careful to
let the glaze set not dry or it will be impossible to comb.
* Combing, or striating is done with a metal paint comb made specifically for this type of
work, and available at well-stocked paint stores. (Although the bedroom wall was combed
straight down, combing can be done in any direction. Another popular version is cross-
hatching combing the wall once straight down and once across the wall horizontally. Or,
comb the wall diagonally starting at the upper left hand corner aid working toward the
lower right hand corner. If you are really adventurous, comb in wavy lines instead of straight
ones!)
* Comb the wall twice, overlapping the second line between adjacent comb strokes
* Wipe the glaze off the comb after each stroke to prevent glaze from building up. Don't worry
about keeping a steady hand or applying consistent pressure these inevitable irregularities
help create the satiny appearance you want.
Allow the glaze to dry for 24 hours, then apply a low lustre/satin varnish for protection.

Don and I decided to have
our very own yard sale adven-
ture this past week-end. We
had been talking about doing
this for some time. So, when
the weather seemed at its most
promising, we set up tables
under tents on the vacant lot
next to our shop. Loading the
tables to overflowing with
collectibles and such, we set
out for our three-day.extrava-
ganza. No, it did not rain, and
yes, the weather was beauti-
ful, but for the first two days
the wind blew in typical
March fashion ... you know,
in like a lion. And although
the wind. had ceased by the
morning of the third day, alas,
the adventure of our yard sale
extravaganza had worn off.
Yet all was not in vain. We
had the opportunity to meet

There are pros and cons that
are daily expounded upon
concerning our public educa-

would like to focus on one of
the pros. Congratulations goes
to Tyler Lowry Dykes, who is

Q: Are dental implants really a practical option
for a person missing teeth?
A. Dental implants are definitely a practical
option. They are not, however, suitable for
everyone. Healthy gums and bone are
necessary to support implants, which are metal
posts that are surgically placed in the bone
under you gums. Also, because the placement
of implants is a surgical procedure, a candidate
must be in good overall health. Since good
periodontal health is key to the success of an
implant, smokers and diabetics may not be
candidates for implants. After a period of
healing, during which the bone grows around the
post, a replacement tooth, or crown, is attached
to the post. Implants also can be used to secure
a bridge or dentures when more than one tooth
is missing. Placing implants is not a dental
specialty. So a team of dentists may be involved
in placing an implant. One dentist, for instance,
may do the surgery to put the implant in the bone
and another may place the crown on the post.
Talk to your dentist about whether you are a
candidate for dental implants. Also check with
your dental insurance plan to see if the
procedure is fully or partially covered.

friends, and sometimes, even
with family. The Rev. Randy
Lamb, who is a traveling
evangelist, and the son of our
very own Sue Lamb, was
guest speaker for the two
nights and one day event,
which drew many of the
area's youth, giving them the
opportunity to come together
with those their own age and
shared spiritual beliefs. A
praise band from Jacksonville
provide the music. Donnie
Bullock, minister of music
and interim youth minister for
Wellborn Baptist, said they
averaged 175 youth per night
for the two .nights sessions,
and 95 attended the Saturday
Dating Rap seminar, which
gave those attending sugges-
tions on how to handle certain
situations that may confront
them while dating. Donnie
said 31 youths made profes-
sions of faith and 10 rededi-
cated their lives to Jesus
Christ.

comes full circle to real estate career Senior consumer analyst Dan

Moss comes full circle to a real estate career Senior consumer analyst Dan


Charlene Moss has come
full circle, back to the love
of real estate that began over
30 years ago.
Moss' life .has been a
whirlwind of moves between
her military father and her
husband's career in construc-
tion. During that time Moss
never lost a love for real es-
tate, and now she finally has
a chance to build the career
she's always wanted with the
support of Poole Realty, Inc.
"This is my second go
around, and I'm older and
wiser and ready to do it,"
Moss said. "I've always
loved real estate and so I'm
finally getting into it."
When Moss earned her li-
cense back in 1975, she soon
moved out of state, putting
her career on hold. In fact,
Moss was raised in the Flori-
da Keys, Key Largo to be ex-
act. Although her mother al-
ways wanted to move to
North Florida, it never mate-
rialized in Moss' youth. But
Moss and her family moved
quite a bit, and when she met
her husband 20 years ago in
Brooksville, they continued
moving a lot as a result of his
work.
Then in 2000, Moss and
her husband, Oscar, moved


back to Brooksville. A
cousin lived in North Flori-
da, and Moss, her husband
and mother all fell in love
with Live Oak. Finally in
2004, they all relocated.
Soon after Oscar's mother
moved to Live Oak, too.
"Now it's two mothers, -a
husband and myself," Moss
quipped. But the constant
moving and travel makes her
a perfect fit for real estate.
And in July of 2005, Moss
began the process of recerti-
fying, and she earned her
real estate license for the
second time on Oct. 25 of
that same. year. Moss took
her time deciding what she
wanted to do. A friend told.
her Poole Realty, Inc. was
hiring, and Ronnie Poole
welcomed her in.
"I was proud to know they
were hiring, and that he said
for me to come on in," Moss
said. "I like Poole (Realty,
Inc.). It's a large agency, and
they're very friendly people
and well-respected, which
means a lot to me. They have
a good name and good repu-
tation."
Her favorite part of the ca-
reer she's been waiting so
long to build is learning all
there is to know about prop-


Charlene Moss
erties and homes and what
makes a property valuable.
And her biggest goal is to
have her clients walk away
feeling they dealt with some-
one who was proficient,
friendly .and courteous. "I
want them to have confi-
dence in me and not hesitate


to refer me to someone they
know," Moss said. /
Moss joined the Board of
Realtors just recently, and
she says she wants to be a top
producer.
"I'm dedicated to being the
best I can be and learning all
there is to learn," Moss said.

There are fewer than 500
acres of chestnut orchards in
the U.S. and the largest, Dun-
'stan chestnut orchard in the
State of Florida will be on the
auction block at noon, Satur-
day, March 18, at 492 NE Jas-
mine Terrace, Lee, following
another auction. The Chestnut
industry is a $20 million a
year business and the demand
is high for fresh produce'
grown right here in the U.S.
Chestnuts arriving here in the
states are r.,pically of lowV
qualby arid so demand is high
for these home grown nuts.
The orchard of 1,350 trees
on 20 acres of beautiful rolling


North Florida property in
Suwannee County will pro-
duce fruitage in approximately
three years and yields are typ-
ically large according to ex-
perts. These trees are blight re-
sistant due to the research and
development of Dr. Richard T.
Dunstan for whom the trees
are named and have there own
U.S. plant patent. These trees
are healthy, grow vigorously
and when they come of age in
most cases, produce heavily
each year. Trees can be plant-
ed with or without irrigation
but the success rate is greater
if an irrigation system is in
place, and drip irrigation is the.


method of choice at the or-
chard in Suwannee County
due to high humidity and
evaporation rates.
According to- Chestnut Hill
Tree Farm, chestnuts are deli-
cious and healthy to eat. They
are high in carbohydrates (40
percent) and very low in fat
(2-3 percent) while other nuts
are 50 percent fat. They also
have no cholesterol and 5-10
percent high quality protein.
Chestnuts are wonderful in
soups, stews, vegetables and:
'desserts, as well dressings.
J.W. Hill & Associates will
be conducting this unique auc-
tion event. Their main offices


are located in the heart of

Landowners


Continued From Page 1A

While a number of people
spoke in favor of the propos-
al, only a few spoke against
it at the hearing Feb. 23.
That, say some neighbors, is
because they did not know
about the public hearing and
were never notified so they
could attend and express
their opinion.
At least one landowner,
Stacey Worth, says she is in-
vestigating the possibility of
suing the county since she
was never notified of the zon-
ing hearing held two weeks
ago, even though she owns
300 acres that adjoins the
property in.question.
Some landowners say they
did not know about the zon-
ing hearing. Others said a
sign posted on the seldom
traveled dead-end graded
road didn't have the correct
information up until the day
before the hearing until it was
changed at the last minute.
While the county has
records to prove it notified
six landowners in the area,
Worth was not on that notifi-
cation list.. Worth's property
adjoins the property in ques-
tion on the west side.
Others who own property
in the area west of the Florida
Sheriffs Boys Ranch on a
graded road, north of Fort
Union that begins as. 145th
Road, changes to 20th Street
and then to 151st Road, say
they should have been noti-
fied even though their proper-
ty doesn't adjoin the proposed
tract.
While some knew about
the meeting, those who didn't
are just plain mad as evi-
denced by the number of let-
ters to the editor in today's
edition regarding the matter

In a letter to Suwannee
County Coordinator Johnny
Wooley, Worth said Zoning
Director Ron Meeks told her
that ""we do not have to give
notice to any adjacent land
owners, it is only a courtesy."
Worth added that Meeks also
told her ""the ,land owners
had to be within a 300 foot ra-
dius"" to be notified of the
hearing. Worth said the coun-
ty has set a precedent in the
past by notifying all adjacent
landowners but this time, just
didn't bother.


Worth is asking that the ap-
plication's approval be re-
scinded and tabled until fur-
ther studies have been con-
ducted and all parties are no-
tified so they can attend to ex-
press their wishes in the mat-
ter. She is appealing the zon-
ing board's decision based
upon 1) Failure to provide
property information to all
parties involved, and 2) Fail-
ure to comply with Land Use
Regulations.
Suwannee County Coordi-
nator Johnny Wooley said al-
though an appeal has been


filed by Worth regarding her
not being notified, there is no
requirement of the zoning
board to notify anyone in
writing, only by legal notice
in the Suwannee Democrat
and to the party who files the
request for the hearing. "The
Land Develop Rules (LDRs)
don't require written notice,"
he said. "We are required to
notify in writing the parties
who have actually applied for
the hearing." Regarding past
written notification, Wooley
admits the county had done
so in the past. "We have done

walked into the restaurant, a
comment was made, Herring
pushed Hingson from the back
down to the floor, Deputy
Smith said. Hart, a friend of
Hingson's stepped in to help
Hingson, leading to a con-
frontation between Hart and
Herring. The two went outside,
and Hart was apparently win-
ning the fight, having busted
Herring's lip, when bystanders
broke up the fight, Deputy
Smith said. Herring went'back
inside the restaurant, went to
the restroom and apparently
became enraged when he saw
his split lip, Deputy Smith
wrote in his report. Herring
then returned outside with two
knives as Hart was pulling
away in his vehicle with two
females. Deputy Smith, said
witnesses told him Herring
started hitting the window of
the vehicle with Hart inside
until Hart got out. That's when
Herring attacked Hart with the
two knives, Deputy Smith
said witnesses told him. As
Herring was stabbing Hart,
Brittney Michell Bowen, 19,
Live Oak, managed to grab
one of the two knives from
Herring, Deputy Smith said.
"After Herring, stopped stab-
bing Hart, he"irealized who
had taken the knife away from
him, he walked up to Bowen
and hit her on the left side of
her head with a closed fist,"
Deputy Smith said. Herring
then got back into his car and
drove away with his two
friends, Deputy Smith said.
When Deputy Smith arrived
on scene, Hart was in distress
and bleeding profusely, he
said. Witnesses said the al-'
leged assailant had just driven
away so. the deputy chased the
vehicle and stopped it. Other
law enforcement arrived mo-
mentarily to assist. Deputy
Smith said when he got all
three men out of the car, Her-
ring admitted he had stabbed
Hart and said his friends had
nothing to do with it.
Hart was lifeflighted from
the Wal-Mart parking lot after
Suwannee County Fire/Res-
cue stabilized him. Deputy'
Smith said Herring never


doesn't adjoin were not noti-
fied, he said.
"My interpretation as land
use administrator is the proper
posting was given with the
sign and legal advertising,"
Wooley said. "My position is
we have followed the rules."
Wooley said the only way
the zoning board can rehear
the issue is if their attorney ad-
vises them to do so. The ap-
peal can also be taken to the
circuit court.

complained of pain nor asked
to be taken to a hospital and
wasn't bleeding at the time,
but the deputy asked para-
medics to check him out any-
way after Hart was lifeflight-
ed. Herring did not have in-
juries requiring a trip to the
hospital, Deputy Smith said,
and he was then taken to the
Suwannee County Jail and
booked in.
Deputy Smith said Herring
told him that it was he who
was confronted by Hart at the
restaurant, they argued, he
told Hart to get out of his face,
Hart hit him with something
and a fight began. The deputy
said Herring said there were
six males and two females hit-
ting him from behind with belt
buckles, so he grabbed a knife
and started stabbing to defend
himself from the crowd, then
left the scene to go to the hos-
pital. But, the deputy said, all
the statements, other than
Herring's, said the fight had
broken up and was. over when
Herring went back inside the
restaurant and returned with
two knives and confronted
Hart, who was attempting to
leave. Only Herring and one
other witness advised Herring
had been hit with something
but could not advise what it
was.
Hingson and Bowen were
both listed as victims in the in-
cident in addition to Hart.
Herring was released the
next day after posting a
$25,000 bond.
Herring was arrested in Au-
gust of 2005 on battery
charges and in November
2005 for possession of co-
caine with intent to sell, sale
of cocaine within 1000 feet of
a recreation center, according
to the Suwannee County Sher-
iffs Office Website.
Involved in the investiga-
tion of the incident were
Suwannee .County Sheriff's
Sgt; Sam St. John, Cpl. Scdtt
Senea, Deputy Brian Barrs,
Deputy Smith, Live Oak Po-
lice Det. Aubrey Land and

individual segments when water
rises to specific levels, ranging
from nine to 47 feet. The new rule
goes into effect March 16, accord-
ing to FWC officials.
Idle speed, no wake means a
vessel must proceed at a speed no
greater than required to maintain
steerageway and headway. At no
time is any vessel required to pro-
ceed so .slowly the operator is un-
able to maintain control over the
vessel or any other vessel or object
that it has under tow.
Previously, one gauge in Bran-
ford caused those restrictions for
the entire 160-mile system. When
the Suwannee River reached 26
feet above sea level (three feet be-
low flood stage) at the Branford
gauge, the entire system from the
U.S. 27 Bridge at Branford south to
Fowlers Bluff and on the Santa Fe
River from the U.S. 27 Bridge near
High Springs south to the conflu-
ence of the Suwannee River came
under the idle speed, no wake re-
striction. This caused some areas to
be at idle speed, no wake when riv-
er conditions are well below flood
stage while other areas were well
above flood stage with no restric-
tions in place.
The regulations aim to prevent
boaters from hitting submerged ob-
jects such as docks and stumps.
Some property owners have asked
for. more stringent restrictions to
prevent speeding boats from caus-
ing flooding and erosion.
According to Maj. Paul Ouel-
lette, of FWC's Boating and Water-
ways Section, "Although the FWC
is sensitive to property owners on
the river, our authority only allows
us to regulate the waterway for
boating safety purposes, not prop-
erty protection."
Annual spring rains routinely
cause the Suwannee and Santa Fe
rivers to rise to levels that pose im-
mediate dangers to vessels and the
public. Vessels operating in the
area can strike submerged objects.
"In the five new zones, idle
speed, .no wake restrictions are dri-
ven' by Suwannee River Water
Management gauges already situat-
ed within these segments. When


the specific gauge reaches the iden-
tified water level, idle speed, no
wake restrictions will be imposed.
When waters recede below these
specified levels within a specific
segment, the restrictions will be
lifted," Ouellette said.
The first segment is from the
U.S. 90 Bridge at Ellaville south to
the S.R. 51 Bridge at Luraville.
This 39-mile segment of the river
will be at idle speed; no wake when
the Suwannee River is at 47 feet
above mean sea level or higher as
indicated on the Ellaville gauge,
where flood stage is 54 feet.
The second segment is from the
S.R. 51 Bridge at Luraville to Little
River Spring. This 18-mile seg-
ment of the river would be at idle
speed; no wake when the Suwan-
nee River is at 26 above feet mean
sea level or higher as indicated on
the Branford gauge, where flood
stage is 29 feet.
The third segment is from Little
River Spring to the, C.R. 340
Bridge at Rock Bluff. This 23-mile
segment of the river would be at
idle speed, no wake when the
Suwannee River is at 24 feet above
mean sea level or higher as indicat-
ed on the Branford gauge.
The fourth segment runs from
C.R. 340 Bridge at Rock Bluff to
one mile below the Fowler Bluff
Boat Ramp. This 51-mile segment
of the river would be at Idle Speed
No Wake when the Suwannee Riv-
er is at nine feet above mean sea
level or higher as indicated on the
Wilcox gauge, where flood stage is,
11 .feet.
The fifth segment is from River
Rise within O'Leno State Park
west, to the confluence of the
Suwannee River. This 32-mile seg-
ment of the river would be at idle
speed, no wake when the Santa Fe
River is at 17 above feet mean sea
level or higher, as indicated on the
Three Rivers gauge, where flood
stage is 19 feet.
"FWC is working to develop sig-
nage for the new zones and will be
responsible for all costs associated
with placement and maintenance of
the signs," Ouellette said.

government, the city of Live Oak, School Board Offices
and the Sheriffs Office were in compliance with the law
regarding access to public records. Madison and Colum-
bia Counties had three to four violations of the public
records law. Hamilton and Gilchrist Counties had five to
six violations. Lafayette County was not audited due to
time.
Volunteers attempted to audit 268 agencies in the
state's 67 counties plus four state agencies. In the end,
about 50 agencies weren't included in the results because
they reported that they didn't have the records requested
or the auditor did not follow instructions and the audit
had to be discounted.
The Herald-Tribune of Sarasota provided results from
a similar audit done in 2004. The numbers were provided
as a point of reference but should not be considered a di-
rect statistical comparison because 6f differences in
methodology and execution of the two audits.
This year, the requested documents, all public records
under Florida Statute 119, were: School districts, munici-
palities and county governments' e-mails or other corre-
spondence between the top administrator and members of
the elected body such as the school board or city council.
If none existed for that time period, the most recent were
requested.
For sheriffs' offices a log of calls
made to the dispatch center over the
previous 48 hours was requested.
When inspection of the log was al- -
lowed, the volunteer asked for the re- "
port on a specific incident.
The newspapers also requested docu-.
ments from a sample of state agencies:
Travel expenses for January 2006 from
Attorney General Charlie Crist and Tom
Gallagher, chief financial officer for the
Department of Financial Services; e-
mails from top officials in Gov. Bush's .
administration for a week in February oe
and a report on calls made to the Elder
Help Line run by the state Department
of Elder Affairs. (
The protocol called for volunteers to
behave as "regular citizens" with only a
limited knowledge of Florida's public Available
records law. They were instructed to be. .
polite and to keep the audit secret.
State law does not require a person
asking for public records to provide a O d
name, a reason for the request, identifi-
cation or a written request. To test that
anonymity, volunteers responded to
questions that could reveal their identity
or intent by asking, "Is that information
necessary for you to fulfill my request?"
If officials insisted on getting the in-
formation they were marked as violat-
ing the public records law.
Audit organizers determined that an


hour was a reasonable amount of time to wait for access to
the records.
If volunteers left an office with confirmation that the
records would be provided at a later date, it was considered
compliance. If an hour passed without an assurance that,the
request would be fulfilled, the visit was counted as non-
compliance. Reporters were told not to lie about their occu-
pation if asked.

Drug and non-drug therapies for dry eye
Dry eye can be caused by a multitude of things and is characterized by
red eyes that feel gritty. There are several remedies that can be used to
alleviate this condition. Non-drug therapies for dry eye can be used
alone or in combination with drug therapy. Environmental control, such
as avoiding dry, dusty, and windy spaces, is usually helpful.
Humidifiers in the home or office can help to moisturize eyes, and
prolonged viewing of a computer screen should be avoided when
possible.
Nonprescription drug therapies include artificial tears and eye
ointments. Artificial tears help to stabilize the tear film and slow the
evaporation of tears. These products are easy to use and are usually not
messy. Eye ointments contain petrolatum, lanolin, mineral oil, or a
combination, and these products help to lubricate the eye and prevent
tear evaporation. Although very effective, these products can be messy
and more difficult to use. Due to the many products, it may be difficult
to choose the best treatment. A pharmacist or eye care professional can
help in choosing the best drug and non-drug therapies for treating dry
eye.

Heat Greets



Glorious Fourth



Of July Festivities


By Fred Hughes
A sparkling blue sky greeted the several hundred people who
sat in the bleachers at Paul Langford Stadium about 9:15 anm.
Saturday for the opening ceremony of Suwannee County's 4th of
July activities.
But it was a hot sun, beating across the grassy football field.
Temperature was 81 degrees.
THE HEAT WAS ABOUT TO create the first eventful moment
of the day. NJROTC cadet James Kincheloe staggered several
times as hestood at attention in the Color Guard.
Moments later he turned toward the north end of the stadium
and started to walk off the field. Hestaggered several more steps
and fell, overcome by a combination of poor circulation from


standing at attention and heat.
He was assisted off the field and was reported okay a
shortwhile later.
Jeff Brown, a National Guard member, took Kincheloe's rifle
and stood at attend tion as the Color Guard presented the Stars and
Stripes for the remainder of the opening ceremony.
AFTERWARDS, LARRY SNIDER, chairman of the county's
Bicentennial Corummittee, said he was "really thrilled to death
that we had the turnout that we did for the parade, great weather
and great participation."
The parade formed at the football field and followed the
opening ceremony.

Opens Fun Holiday Weekend

Suwannee County's bicentennial celebration began shortly
after 9 a.m. Saturday with an impressive ceremony in Paul
Langford stadium. Veteran's service officer Reginald Scott
introduced Rev. Jim Walkup who gave an invocation, then Scott
read a poem honoring the American Flag, one which has been
read before on Memorial Day and on Flag Day.
The words began, "Hello, remember me, I'm your flag...," a
fitting tribute to the symbol of 200 years of freedom.
Mrs. Marian Wright sang "God 'Bless America" which
prompted everyone at the ceremony to join her in song.
Bicentennial committee chairman Larry Snider welcomed the
crowd to the 200th birthday celebration of America and read a
Bicentennial message from President Gerald Ford.
REGIONAL SCOTT INTRODUCED leaders of the four
veteran service organizations, including Fred Piper of the World
War I Veterans,,Ralph Williams of the American Legion, John
Edmistenf of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and Lloyd Webb of
the Disabled American Veterans.
Live Oak mayor S.T. McDowell also welcomed everyone and
thanked those persons responsible for making the county's,
celebration possible. McDowell reminded the gathering that
America is still a strong nation despite all of the troubles of
recent years.
"God has, indeed, blessed'America," he said. Suwannee
Countians then waited while the Suwannee High Naval Junior
Reserve Officer Training Corps color guard paraded off the field
and the Suwannee County Bicentennial parade began.
It was one of the best parades ever to march through the
streets of Live Oak Saturday. morning, certainly one
representative of the Bicentennial spirit traveling throughout
America. There were people from every corner of Suwannee
County walking, marching, riding and watching as the
procession passed first east on Howard Street and then south on
Ohio' A er.ue pa '1 iht ...u-ifmuse
,T.F Of LIt E OAK POLICE car and a Suw'anee County
o itnffi Dppartmenrer'Indr fliweg vOak FIre
Department truck and the IJROTC color guard .
Then followed a caravan of cars carrying men and women of
the four veterans service organizations and their auxiliary units.
These included the Disabled American Veterans, Veterans of


Foreign Wars, World War I Veterans, and the American Legion
and their respective Auxiliaries. Next was a car representing
Suwannee County's Senior Citizens, many of whom were seeing
their 50th or better Fourth. of July parade.
Following them as they rounded the corner of Live Oak's
central intersection was thie Branford High School marching
band, not in uniform because of the tremendous July heat, but
just as full of crowd pleasing music As always. Branford's Cub
Scout Pack 526 was next in their lineup, followed by a car carrying
Wanda Howell, Miss Suwannee County.
The Suwannee School of Gymunastics was in full force, looking
trim and healthy for a long walk:in red leotards. They were
joined by the county's bicentennial court.
Another Live Oak Fire Department. fire engine and then a
carload of the city's officials, were followed by cars with
Suwannee County commissioner Warren Howard and county
election supervisor Marjorie Carmiichael.
An "America 200" floatwas close behind them, followedby two
large vehicles, belonging to "The New Minutemen," the Florida
National Guard's 269th Engineering Company. Then came the
NJROTC wheeled craft carrying students and members of the
Fleet Reserve Association of Live Oak. "
THE LIVE OAK SHRINE CLUB WAS ringing their bell as
their Steamboat rolled along Ohio Avenue. "We ride to help
crippled children walk," was their message.
A Crop Care sprayer amazed the children watching from the
curb and the state Division of Forestry pleased them even more
with a float containing the one anid only Smokey the Bear. The
foresters were followed by a flotilla of fire engines they've
donated to the Luraville RFD, d'Brien VED, McAlpin VFD,
White Springs RFD. and the Wellborn RFD.
Rin Dickinson drove his vintage Chevy pickup as the first of
many old cars In the parade, most of which were familiar to
those countians who have been around the longest,
PAM HICKS, SWEETHEART OIF THE Suwannee County
I Cattlenen'sAssoclanon rode along next, welcoming everyone to

Without a doubt it was a grand opening to the county's
bicentennial celebration.

Suwannee baseball handles Middleburg


Nick Reppert pitches a shutout in five innings


Janet Schrader
Democrat Reporter
Suwannee traveled to Jacksonville
to take on district opponent Middle-
burg Monday night, March 6. Accord-
ing to coach Ronnie .Gray the game
went well. The final score was 13-0
with the game ending in the fifth in-
ning due to the 10-run rule.
"I think we played our most com-
plete game over there in Jacksonville
the other night," Gray said. "We got
started offensively-early and scored
every inning. "
Gray said so far Suwannee has de-
feated every district team by the 10-
run-rule except Baker last Friday
night. Suwannee shut out Baker 4-0.
"We have only allowed in the four
district games three runs, while
throwing two shutouts," Gray said.
Nick Reppert got his first start of
the year and was dominant, striking
out seven through five innings and
allowing only one hit and walking
one.


"I was pleased to see Nick on the
mound again as a starter and see him
be able to go deep into the game,"
Gray said. "At times, he did not pitch
with as much command as we would
like but I think we will begin to see
that improve with more repetitions."
Offensively against Middleburg,
Gabe Galloway had a tremendous
night going 4-4 at the plate with two
doubles and a solo homerun he hit in
the first. Ross Aretino's bat is begin-
ning to warm up as he was 2-3 with a
double and hit every ball hard. Billy
Moran and Rheed Baldwin joined the
hit parade by each collecting two hits
and both blasting monstrous home-
runs to left and right field respective-
ly. Matt Yanossy swung the bat ex-
tremely well along with Zack Davis
who hit it hard all night and each had
a couple hits each as well.
Look for Suwannee at home again
on March 23 when the Dogs play in
front of the students. Suwannee takes
on Mayo at 1:45 p.m. Look for the
Dogs again that week on Friday
night, March 24, at 6 p.-m.


Suwannee softball



has bummer week

The week of Feb. 27 was a tough one
for the Suwannee High softball team.
The Lady Dogs played two district
games, one away and one at hor e, and
traveled to Columbia. Suwannee, opt-
ing to try out new pitchers in two of the ....
matches, lost all three games. .
On Tuesday, Feb. 28,-Suwannee
S faced district opponent Ridgeview. a
team they had never played. Senior Lea
Schenck pitched all seven innings. The
game stayed tight up until the sixth in-
ning. At the end of five, Suwannee %vas
up 2-1.
Unfortunately, in the sixth inning
Schenck gave up two hits and then the -....
defense behind her struggled, allo in g .
three runs to score. The same thing
happened again in the seventh.
Ridgeview capitalized on Suwannee's
defensive and mental errors and scored '
four runs, winning 8-2.
Suwannee had only five hits and left
.wT*'4.

my, a member of the Flori-
da Christian Athletic

Melody erupted in the
sixth inning for seven runs
by a combination of three
clutch hits, four walks and
one error to seal the win.
Wallace Pickles started
the third inning with a
walk and scored off a dou-
ble to center by Danny
Proctor.
In the fifth, Tyler Smith

right field. Proctor lined a
double to left field to score


Smith.
The "nail in the coffin"
inning came in the sixth
when Melody sent 1.1 bat-
ters to the plate. Rusty
Grinnell walked to begin
the inning. When the two
next batters struck out,
things looked grim. But
Charlie Hines drew a walk
and Smith unloaded with
his -second double of the
night to score Hines. Two
consecutive walks to Proc-
tor and Pickles loaded the
bases. Kolby Bishpam then
smacked a three RBI dou-
ble, his second of the night

ular-season events. As many
as 200 boaters and 200 co-

which will award as much as
$45,000 in cash, including

well as points that count to-
ward postseason competi-
tion. Every angler who re-
ceives weight credit' in a
tournament earns points,
with 200 points,going to the
winner, 199 for second, 198
for third, and so on, except
for the'season-ending Super

300 points to the winner,
299 points for second, 298
for third, and so on.


If the winner is a partici-

Yamaha if his boat is pow-
ered by Yamaha. Ranger will

contingency guidelines.
The winning co-angler

es the biggest bass of the day
in the Boater Division will

Preliminary biological


status reviews complete

FWC- Appointed Biological Review Panels

Recommend Classification Changes for Bald

Eagle, Gopher Tortoise and Florida Manatee


Three biological review
panels, each consisting of
five experts appointed by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC), recently completed
preliminary biological status
reviews of three of Florida's
imperiled species.
These reviews were con-
ducted in response to peti-
tions to re-evaluate the sta-
tus of the bald eagle, gopher
tortoise, Florida manatee
and Panama City crayfish.
Preliminary reviews are
complete for the bald eagle,
gopher tortoise and Florida
manatee, while work contin-
ues on the Panama City
crayfish review. Under the
new listing process for im-
periled species adopted by
the FWC in the spring, the
assessments consider specif-
ic criteria that include popu-
lation size, trends, distribu-
tion and range. The listing
process designates three lev-
els of increasing imperil-
ment: species of special con-
cern, threatened and endan-
gered.
The current
recommendations
include:


Bald eagle-Remove
from the imperiled species
list. Since 1980, bald. eagle
populations have rebounded
dramatically. Research indi-
cates the species does not
meet any of the listing crite-
ria.

Gopher .tortoise-Re-
classify the species from
species of special concern to
threatened. Continued pop-
ulation and habitat decline
contributed to the recom-
mencation in this assess-
ment.

Florida manatee-
Reclassify the species from
endangered to threatened.
The manatee population has
increased over the past few
decades, but threats still re-
main that could cause the
population to decline signif-
icantly in the future.
"The bald eagle popula-
tion is doing very well," said
FWC Endangered Species
Coordinator Dan Sullivan.
"In 1980, Florida had ap-
proximately 363 eagle nests.
Today, we have more than
1,100 active eagle nests."

Cutting Down on Caffeine?
Know Hidden Sources


Many people are under the impression that
caffeine is a horrible monster that should be
avoided at all costs. In actuality, when
consumed in moderation, caffeine can actually
offer a number of benefits. It can keep you
alert and awake when making a long car trip, it
has been shown to reduce headache and
migraine pain, and it may alleviate asthma and
allergy symptoms. What gives caffeine a bad
rap are the negative side effects from overuse.
This includes a fast heart rate which is
dangerous for anyone with a heart condition,
diuresis (excessive urination that results in
dehydration), restlessness and trouble
sleeping, anxiety and 'panic attacks. As a
result, many doctors advise their patients to
limit caffeine consumption. In addition,
pregnant women are usually told to avoid
caffeine in most instances because of its
potentially negative affect on a fetus.
If you need to watch caffeine intake,.you
should become educated on the foods and
products that contain it. While some are
obvious, others are lesser-known and
surprising.
Brewed coffee contains more caffeine (50 to
200 mg depending upon cup size) and is likely
widely known among consumers (drip pots
produce coffee with a higher caffeine content
than percolator pots). However, the popular
headache pill Excedrin contains 130 mg of
caffeine -*almost the same amount as a cup of
joe.
For those who want a refreshing caffeine-
free soft drink, steering clear of cola products
is a no-brainer. But don't reach for just any
other variety. Sunkist orange -soda, for
example, has 40 mg per 12-ounce serving and
Mountain Dew has 55 mg (in comparison,
Pepsi only has 37 mg). Consider root beer or
a lemon-lime variety like Sprite or 7-Up,
neither of which contains caffeine.
Chocoholics can sleep soundly knowing that
most chocolate products are low in caffeine a

1-oz. piece of milk chocolate only has around 5
mg. But when chocolate is mixed with coffee in
yogurt or ice cream, caffeine levels can be
considerably elevated. Case in point: Ben &
Jerry's Coffee Fudge Frozen Yogurt has 85 mg.
Tea is another questionable area of concern.
Brewed teas contain about half the amount of
caffeine as a cup of coffee. Iced tea measures
in at the highest level with 70 mg per 12-ounce
serving.
Also .be careful of sports drinks and vitamin
waters. Some are caffeine-free, but others have
caffeine hidden within.
Some may find it surprising that the USDA
does not mandate companies to 1',, caffeine
levels on their product labeling. Therefore, if the
label is unclear, doing some research on the
Internet or calling the company may be in order.
When limiting caffeine consumption after
prior heavy use (such as drinking multiple cups
of coffee a day), do so gradually. Caffeine can
be an addictive substance, and withdrawal
symptoms such as irritability, headaches and
nausea may result when caffeine consumption
is stopped too quickly.

When it comes to keeping family connected, women take the lead


(ARA) She's the granddame of the family -- the
family matriarch. Tradition paints her as the
dignified, commanding and senior female head of the
family. She's the grandmother whose house we travel
to for roast turkey and pumpkin pie. She's also the
young mom with a camera in hand and a toddler
slung on her hip or the baby boomer sister with a
flair for fun and a high-speed modem. When it comes
to crowning the family matriarch, only one quality is
clearly necessary an undeniable desire to preserve'
family relationships and keep the family connected.

Why women?
It would be an injustice to men to say that they
have no interest in gathering and communicating
with their extended family. Nevertheless, there seems
to be something to those stereotypically female multi-
tasking, emotional qualities that prompt more women
than men to be the family relationship caretakers and
organizers. On average, studies have shown that
women communicate more often with family. Women
are also more likely than men to initiate gatherings.
"Generally, it is true that women are more
interested in organizing family communications,
reunions and gatherings," says Laurence Basirico,
Ph.D., professor of sociology and interim dean of
International Programs for Elon College in North
Carolina. "Despite the growing rate of two-income
households, women still feel the emotional
responsibility of handling the family stuff. And mo:K'
women enjoy it and are good at it."
According to a poll conducted by Harris Interactive
for Modern Woodmen of America, a fraternal benefit
society offering financial services, the majority of
men and women attend holiday events (93 percent);
however, women are more inclined than men to
gather with extended family at other times during the
year.
"While men and women both agree that
relationships with extended family members are
important, the survey shows that women have an
edge over men when it comes to attending family
functions and pursuing communication
opportunities," says Sharon Snawerdt of Modern
Woodmen, which promotes strong family
relationships through member programs as well as its
Web site, www.gatherings.info. "For instance, 55
percent of women in our survey attended family
gatherings seven to 11 times a year, compared to 40
percent of men."
This difference in the sexes is not something new,
according to Basirico.
"In contemporary society, we are socialized into
thinking that women should fulfill the role of keeper
and organizer of the family relationships," says
Basirico, author of "The Family Reunion Survival
Guide: How to Avoid Problems with Your Family
without Avoiding Your Family," and the most recent
planner of his own family reunion. "For many
women, the connection between them and their
children is different than the connection between the
father and the children. This comes from, literally,
having given birth to them. Even women who don't
feel this connection may feel the pressure to take on
this role, even if they are not the best at it."

Women who take the lead and love it
Who's the matriarch? According to Basirico, today's
matriarchs appear to be oblivious to age and


experience.
"I don't
know if,
anymore, a bi -
there are any
real
characteristics i. a i
that mark.a
person as the l
matriarch," he
says. "These I.
days it is
more a matter
of who is i7 i
willing to do1-
it. Who has
the time, the
interest and
the
resources?"
Mary
Connelly
Kegelman, of ar
Wilmington, o "
Del., is one of
those women
who excels at being the caretaker of the family
connection and is definitely qualified as the
matriarch of the family. Her husband Matthew agrees
with her in the importance of hosting family
gatherings, but when it comes down to managing the
details, Mary takes the lead.
"We are both retired,", says the 74-year-old
Kegelman who was named the 2004 Mother.of the
Year by American Mothers Inc. "Together we keep
the family get-togethers going, but I am the,
instigator. My husband is invaluable in supporting
me."
She laughs, "He is the one that gets to move tables,
and chairs around."
Their brood of 10 children and 20 grandchildren '
gather at least once a month at the Kegelman's home
to celebrate birthdays and holidays.
"These gatherings are really the mechanism for
keeping our family close," says Kegelman. "They are
very important to us."
While Amy Anderson of Boerne, Texas, is not the
family matriarch, she can see herself assuming a
more active role in planning family gatherings and '
communication activities as the years go by. The
parents of 18-month-old Benjamin, Anderson and her
husband Nathan delved head first into the family
reunion business this past fall. With her husband's
sister, they are in charge of the 30th annual reunion
of her mother-in-law's family, which typically
attracts about 40 family members and will take place'
in the summer of 2005.
Anderson relies on Web sites such as
www.gatherings.info to generate ideas and organize
the details.
Rallying the family around the matriarch(s)
Because families are so busy, today's matriarchs
must be flexible and strategically utilize the talents
found among other members of the family..
Rule 1: Have a plan and delegate, delegate,
delegate
"I couldn't do it alone," says Kegelman. "I do a lot
of the cooking, and we usually host the event at our
home, but my husband,







T I.







m.m
_L^ \3^J ^WA S





94&


children and grandchildren all contribute."
It helps to keep the details simple and,predictable.
Some family matriarchs generate a schedule for
rotating the responsibility qf who hosts the Christmas
dinner or reunion every year. Others create a
standard plan for who provides what on the menu for
every gathering. Still others designate family
members as official photographer or game planner.
"Each person has one thing they do best, whether it
is a special dish or game," stresses Kegelman. "We
have a.format that works well."
Rule 2: Make fun the priority
Kegelman feels being the matriarch doesn't mean
she has to be controlling. "I try not to give orders or
advice until asked," she says. "I got a lot of that as a
young mother and I remember how I felt. My
children and grandchildren make their own choices
in4ife. I need to respect that. That is the key to being
respected in return."
Anderson and Kegelman both acknowledge that
while organization, timelines and delegation of
responsibility is important, they strive to keep it all
in the context of fun. For Anderson, planning the next
family function is the opportunity to let the creative
juices flow.
The Modern Woodmen survey indicated that
women are the great communicators in the family.
According to the results, women are more inclined to
keep on top of family news and use the phone, letters
and email more often than men. In fact, women are
using technology to their benefit for this purpose."
Eighty-one percent of women see email, the Internet,
family bulletin boards or Web sites as ways to stay in
touch with extended family members as compared to
67 percent of men. Internet providers' marketing
.strategies corroborate this finding. Women are their
biggest target market group in promoting the
communication value of the Internet. Even senior-
aged women have mastered the technology to use it,
to stay in touch with their families.

A merry matriarchy
Whether you're the matriarch, a matriarch-in-
training or simply a family
M r e member standing able and
S ready to assist the woman
JFN LVE (or women) in charge,
remember to keep the
ultimate goal in mind:
Work together to keep the
family together.
"The food and
everything else is
9 ^important," concludes
t* Kegelman. "But the best
Up UI th part is just having the
opportunity to talk and
SI Sa rah laugh together."

Parents developing roles in their child's college education


(ARA) This fall millions of parents will take
their child to college for the first time. They will
load 'the car, drive to campus, unload the car, kiss
their child goodbye and leave.
Then what? Do they sit around and wait for the
homesick phone call? Do they dare ask how
classes are going? Should they visit the campus
during the year? Does the college want their
involvement or will they see it as meddling?
During the last decade parents have become
more involved in their student's college
experience, which colleges have embraced.-Some
experts attribute this to the fact that Baby
Boomers -- the parents who were very active in
their children's lives -- are sending their kids tp
college. .They are the Soccer Moms and Little
League Dads who aren't ready to let go just yet.
Others say parents want to know how their
thousands in hard-earned tuition dollars are being
spent. After all, financing a college education now
ranks with buying a home and saving for
retiremeAt in financial impact.
Parents definitely should be involved in their
student's education, says Monica Groves, dean of
students 'at Northwestern College in St. Paul,
Minn. "Parent involvement holds the parent,
student and the college accountable," she
explains. "Parents know their kids best, so they
need to keep in touch to pick up on any warning
signs of possible trouble that needs to be
addressed."
Parental involvement holds the college
accountable to uphold standards and
commitments, she adds. For example, if enough
parents express concern about a certain policy or
incident, it grabs the administration's attention,
which can bring positive change.
Parental involvement doesn't stop with the
college admissions process.
It continues on campus, beginning with
freshman orientation. Northwestern, for example,
offers parent sessions with administration and
faculty. Veteran parents host a Q & A time to
share stories and advice. .
Throughout the year are
parent-related events, s M-
such as family weekend
and home games
honoring parents.
Like many colleges, Hopkhi
Northwestern has an -
office of parent relations '
that serves as liaison
between parents and the
college, explains Jessica
,Hughes, assistant
director of parent
relations.
In addition to being a
sounding board of
parent concerns and
ideas, the office is a
resource of college
services. It
communicates with
parents through a
handbook, newsletters,
e-mail blasts and a Web IL'^,;(i..'
site. A parent advisory ^At.e
council communicates
parents' perspectives to
the administration and
provides information
and support to other
parents.
"We field calls, answer
questions and develop Hop ki
networking ---
relationships among -
parents," says Nancy -


Watson, a council member from Billings, Mont.
"Sometimes parents just want to talk to another
parent."

How involved is "involved?"
Groves and Hughes have fielded parent calls
about parking tickets, roommate issues and unfair
grading. "On the other end of the spectrum, some
parents call asking us how often they should call
their student," Groves smiles. "They don't want to
embarrass their student by calling too much."
Hughes says a lot of calls are parents who want
to help their student, but don't know the College
resources, such as health services, housing,
counseling, etc. "Most of the time they want their
child to 'resolve conflict like a grown-up," she
adds.
Groves and Hughes offer practical ways
parents can be involved:
Before the student leaves for college discuss
when and how often to call, and which
communication method the student prefers:
phone, e-mail, mail. Expect changes as you and
your student adjust.
When your student is having a problem in
class, ask them if they have talked to the
professor. If they have and it wasn't satisfactory,
encourage them to talk to the dean. Encourage
your student to be bold and not afraid to -seek
help.
Volunteer for the parent council or other
parent organizations and events on campus.
Network with other parents,
Come to campus when invited. If you live
nearby, attend a few public events such as
concerts and sports events. These help you
connect with the college, but are less intrusive in
your student's "space."
Read the college publications and check out
the Web site to keep up-to-date on news, events
and policies.

Of course, there are a few parental don't:
Don't stay overnight in the dorm.
Don't call your student until after 9 a.m.
College students are on different schedules!
Don't go around the student to solve their
problem.
Don't contact the college to get your student's
grades. The Family Educational Rights and
Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects
the privacy of student education records. While
FERPA gives parents certain rights to their
children's education records, when the student
reaches age 18 or attends a school beyond the high
school level, the rights transfer to the student.
No matter what level of involvement parents
choose, they need to listen to their student,
Groves emphasizes. "Sometimes students are
irrational when they call home. Recognize that
they are venting and may exaggerate," Groves
says. "After they calm down, discuss the problem
and encourage them to find the right people on
campus who can help."
"Be involved as much as you love them,"
Watson advises. "Be involved so you don't lose
them. They may be 18, which is considered adult,
but they are actually on the fence of adulthood
and still need some guidance. The college years
are when 'they make choices that impact their
entire lives. It's an age when many students, due
to lack of direction, fall prey to pornography,
substance abuse and eating disorders."
Yet, often it's the parents' role to let their
students 'make their own decisions. "When I
wanted to write a professor about my daughter's
course load, she was adamant. 'Don't you dare!
I'd die a thousand deaths!' Sd I had to abide by
her wishes," Watson recalls. "They have to learn
to deal with some things on their own. I've had to
keep my mouth shut several times, but I'm glad I
did. She has made some excellent decisions and
really grown up."

Mrs. Coffins, Spiritualist
SHeafer Reaer, Advisor
All who are unsuccessful, unlucky, dissatisfied, let the woman who knows
help you. She removes evil influence. If husband or wife is unfaithful,
see her now. She settles lovers quarrels, helps you gain the lost love and
affection of the one you love and shows you the way to happiness.
She names friends and enemies and tells you if friends are true or false.
She locates lost & stolen property. She does not claim to be God. She is
just a servant of the Lord who was brought here to help humanity. If you
have any problem concerning the past, present, future, love, marriage,
business, lawsuits, finances, health; if you are in trouble, sick or in love,
there's no problem so great that she cannot solve.
