The theft of a memorial
angel from the Live Oak
Cemetery has left one local
faniily saddened over the
loss.
The angel, painstakingly
hand painted and placed at a
grave site in memory of a 5-
year-old child's grandmoth-
er, was found to be missing


about 10 days ago. The little
girl is very upset over the
theft and has asked Live
Oak Mayor Sonny Nobles
to find the person who stole
the angel.
So far; no clues have been
found that lead to the cul-
prits who took the angel.
If you have this angel, if,
you have seen it or know
Wvho took it, you are asked
to call the Live Oak Police
Department at 362-7463


days or 362-2222 nights and
speak to an officer or leave
your information.
The family who lost their
special memorial will be
very appreciative.

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, if 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.

flyers with the design for the
development and patiently an-
swered any questions visitors

Mellinger. Treadway is known
for his developments all over,
including in Daytona and Indi-
anapolis where he's been in-
volved in the racing business
for most of his life.
John Scott said TSS Devel-
opment, the company formed
to purchase the property off
Newbem Road and develop it
into a gated airpark and subdi-
vision with majestic fencing
featuring huge columns

who live here take trees for
granted," Scott said, indicating
that people from
larger cities do Zonir
not. for I

County Coordina- be
tor Johnny Wooley BOOa
was at the open come
house also. Wooley and
said the project has
been underway for
some time and ,,i
w ruling uith ,.he county inhi
dvetyway possible. "The r
county and the airport has a
real need to know who our
neighbors are," he said, adding
that not everyone is friendly to
airports. "One thing was we
needed to protect the end of
the runway," Wooley said,
speaking of the Suwannee
County Airport that is adjacent
to the development. Wooley
said TSS has worked with the
county and agreed to assist the
county in getting space at the
end of the runway on the east
end of the airport, which TSS
currently owns, to give the air-'
port much needed buffer zone.
Wooley said the fence is
the only thing TSS has done
so far that required permit-
ting from anyone, and that
permit came from Suwannee
River Water Management.
All other zoning regarding
half acre lots (some will be
up to one acre which is al-
lowable on the property) will
be heard by the county Zon-
ing Board and then the
County Commission. Issues
regarding access to the air-
port runway are being han-
dled by FAA and the Florida


Department of Transporta-
tion which handles state is-
sues regarding airports.
It was pointed out that TSS
had advertised at the Osh
Kosh annual fly-in about its
plans for the Live Oak airpark,
which brought considerable
interest in the property. "This
is the first premier develop-
ment, first gated planned com-
munity, and first fly-in com-
munity of this magnitude in.
Suwannee County," Wooley
said.
John Scott said prices are
not yet set for the lots but
should be within the next cou-
ple of weeks. "I hope to have
half acre lots close to the Sa-
vanna Plantation prices but
our costs are approaching
$400,000 just to put up the
fence," he said. He added that

development will match the

alternate power so anyone
who lives in the development
will be able to go there during
times of power loss as needed,
he said.

Assoc. Inc., New York.

There is an interesting story
of the old sage who lived on the
side of a mountain near a lake.
It was common practice for the
people of the village below to
come to him for counseling and
advice. The wise old man
spent many hours sitting out in
front of his small cabin where
he rocked to and fro in a crude
little rocking chair made of the
branches of the surrounding
trees. Hour after hour he 'sat
and rocked as he reflected..
One day he noticed a young
lad walking up the path past the
lake toward his cabin. The boy
walked up the hill and stood
erect before die sage. Theokl
man said, "What can I, do fo6
'you young man?" The boy'
replied, "I am told by the peo-
ple in the village that you are
very wise. They say that you
can give me the secret of hap-
piness and success in life."
The old sage listened intently
and then cast his gaze at the
ground for several moments.
He silently rocked to and fro.
Not a sound was heard except
the creaking of the crude rock-
ing chair. Then, the sage rose
to his feet, took the boy by the
hand and led him down the
path toward the lake. Not a
word was spoken'. The boy
was bewildered, but the old
man kept walking. They came
to the edge of the lake but did
not stop. Out into the water the
old man led the boy. The'water
came to the boy's 'knees, to his'
waist, then to his chin, but the
old sage kept walking. The lad
was completely submerged in


the water. The. sage stopped
for a moment, then turned the
boy aroufid and led him out of
the lake and up the path to the
cabin. Still not a word was
spoken. The wise old man sat
again in his creaky chair and
silently rocked to and fro. Af-
ter several moments he looked
into the boy's questioning
eyes and asked, "Young man,
when you were out in the lake,
under water, what was it you
wanted more than anything
else in life?" Quickly the boy
replied, "Why, sir, I wanted a
breath of air more than any-
thing." Then from the wise
old man came these words of
wisdom, "My lad, when you
want happiness and when you
want success in life as much as
you Nwanted the breath of air,
ypu.. will have9 found the, se-
cref."
And so it is. So many peo-
ple are dissatisfied with their
present status in life. They
wish for something better.
They dream of the day when
things. will be just right, but
they only wish and dream.
They don't resolve, and plan,
and act. So many people don't
know what it is that they real-
ly want. Before we can suc-
ceed we must define our goals.
We must know specifically
what we want from life, 'hen


we must want it enough that
we will be motivated to for-
mulate a plan that will enable
us to achieve it. We must want
it enough that we will diligent-
ly follow the plan, step by
step, every day. When our
goals and our plans become a
living picture of reality in our
minds, a picture that will mo-
tivate us to determined action,
only then can. we expect to
find the happiness and success
to fulfill our dreams. .As the
poet so aptly wrote:
I bargained %\ ith Life for a
penny and Life would pay no
more.
However I begged at
evening
When I counted my scanty
store.
For Life is, a just employer,
He gives you what you.ask.
But once you have set the
wages,
Why you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial's hire,
only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked
of Life
Life would have willingly
paid

proper time."1 Timothy 2:5-6

C. Regan, publisher, and Susan K.
Lamb, managing editor. Our|
View is formed by that board. J


OUR VIEW
Growth isn't always easy to take, particularly in a
county where in 1972 the population was around
10,000. Today that population is said to be about
38,000, but some believe it's well over 40,000 and ris-
ing dramatically year after year as South Floridians,
Central Floridians and now those from the northern
states are moving to Suwannee County.
Traffic that used to move at a leisurely pace now
moves like a Jacksonville highway during rush hour
and particularly on Fridays and Saturdays. When
thousands arrive at the Spirit of Suwannee Music
Park on the north end of the county, the increase in
traffic can be readily noticed. When spring arrives
and visitors from the south are thinking about the
upcoming hurricanes, they hurry to Suwannee
County to seek a place where they can find safety
from inland hurricane winds, where they can pur-
chase property at a fraction of what they are selling
their property for in South Florida. Stores spring up,
albeit slowly it seems, from all the influx of popula-
tion, schools must be built, roads must be added, by-
passes should be added, but only one has ever been
added due to poor planning on the part of the
Suwannee County Commission. Those headed
'north and west have to drive through downtown
Live Oak, even if they're in a semi. This is not a good
thing.
As new industry arrives knocking on our door, we
welcome it, but only if it's tried and proven. If it's
been quietly brought in, all hush hush, citizens get
frightened and don't trust their public servants any
longer. This is not always the case, but it's the situa-
tion all too often as citizens go about their own busi-
ness and send elected officials to office, to look after
the citizens' best interest. That's when the new ver-
sus the old clash.
Changes need to be made and made quickly to
make sure that industry newcomers are welcome
and those already living in areas where something
like a poultry house litter recycling plant wants to lo-
cate. Yes, there's a need for this type industry, but no
one who's lived in the country on large acreage
wants to wake up one morning and find a business
next door, especially one that smells, if it does.
Agriculture zoning 1 allows for lots of industry
that isn't all roses. But, there's always someone
who's unhappy and change does make for a lot of
unhappy people some times.
When prisons were first thought about for North
Florida, in every town there were a few who just did-
n't want those prisons coming into their town....pris-
oners would be escaping daily, robbing, raping,
stealing their vehicles and causing mayhem. In
Hamilton County, Madison County, Suwannee
County and Lafayette County the same story
emerged...some didn't want change....most did.
Three of these counties got their prisons and now
have millions of dollars in economic impact due to
those prisons with 400-600 people working at each
one. Suwannee County is the only county that resist-
ed, up until the last possible minute. Only problem
was by the time the County Commission finally got
around to approving one for this county, the state
promised to build it and then reneged on its word.
Let's not repeat our past mistakes...industry is
coming to Suwannee County. Industry is needed in
Suwannee County. It won't always be pretty, but it
will bring jobs. Let's just be sure we get the right kind
of industry, inform the people from the beginning
and don't sneak up on them at the last minute and
grow. It's about time.

COMMENTARY

On full moons and vernal equinoxes


A fellow called me this week
Saand wanted to know how to
determine what day we cele-
brate Easter. I told him I al-
*. ways looked on the calendar,
but technically it's the first
Sunday after the first full
moon after the vernal
equinox.
^ He said, "Huh?"
Dwain Walden I said apparently it involves
algebra, geometry, history, the
Bible and probably some bureaucrats. There also
may be a divining rod and moss on oak trees in-
volved. Heck, you may find a good place to dig a
well and a good day for Easter at the same time, I
told him.
The process ,is kind of complicated so that's why I
just look on the calendar, because it's not going to
affect my life greatly one way or another on which
Sunday we celebrate this event. It would not bother
me if they just picked a Sunday say the second
Sunday in April and just let that be it, kind of
like we do Christmas. It's always Dec. 25.
But if we have people who, keep up with full
moons, equinoxes and stuff of that nature, then I
guess they need to use their skills for something.
But clearly it's too much math for me.
Now it seems that our lives are getting more and
more complicated to the point -that while we may
not be sitting, around diagramming sentences on a
Sunday afternoon, we may have to brush up on our
algebra just to cover the basics of moving from one
day to the next. \
Take. my cholesterol medicine for example. I'm
supposed to take it right before igo to bed. Also, I
am supposed to take it in conjunction with eating
something of high fiber like. applesauce. And 30
minutes before taking it, I'm supposed to take an
aspirin to avoid hot flashes. Now viewed ,alone,
that's not all that complex. But, parallel to all of
this, I'm supposed to take my acid reflux medicine
right before my biggest meal. I don't ever know
which is going to be my biggest meal until it hap-
pens. That becomes an "x" factor.. If I throw in my


antihistamine nasal spray, vitamins, Rolaids and
migraine pills, then an algorithm of some sort
comes into play.
And, I'm not supposed to eat grapefruit because
of the cholesterol medicine. Well, just twist my arm
on that one! Just for the heck of it, I also will avoid
ostrich eggs and goose livers.
As well, the directions say not to mix the choles-
terol medicine with alcohol. So there goes the
Nyquil.
By the way, I did eat some goose liver pate once.
It was goshawful. I was at this banquet, and there
was stuff on my plate I didn't recognize. I was not
alone. Other folks were poking it suspiciously as
well.
I asked a waitress what it was.
"Oh sir, that's goose liver pate," she said.
"Ma'am," I said, "Is there any other part of the
goose back there you could bring out?"
She laughed and said, "No sir."
Well I'm getting sidetracked here. But there was a
lot of goose liver pate left on a lot of plates. I just
hoped that wasn't the sole reason they killed all
those geese. I got to thinking later that I should
have collected it all up in a doggy bag because I'm
sure I could have baited a trot line with it.
More on the calendar: They used to declare that
March 21 was the first day of spring. Now, it is said
to.be March 20 technically, sometime in the af-
ternoon of that day. I don't know when. they
changed it or why they changed it since it doesn't
involve federal holidays and banks .closing. But
someone felt the need, or the urge. And. I don't
know who "they" are.
So if you understand equinoxes and vernals, then
you should know why Easter is on April 16. And
while some people think the moon determines
when bream go on the bed, I'm told by some ex-
perts that ift is strictly governed by the temperature
of the water. I'm not telling you, though, to always
put your stock in experts. Keep in mind that ama-
teurs built Noah's Ark and experts built the Titanic.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR


"I'm committed to
shouting from the roof
tops that there is hope
for the hopeless and
miracles up and down
the sides of whatever
mountains people are
climbing in their life."
Sean Swarner, first
cancer survivor to
climb Mr. Everest.

Dear Friends:

I would like to take the
opportunity to encour-
age the residents of
Suwannee County to
take an active role in the
American Cancer Soci-
ety's Relay For Life. As
a, person undergoing
cancer treatment, Relay
For Life is an event that


takes 'on a special signif-
icance.
This past August, I
was diagnosed with a
rare type of cancer
called Ewing's Sarcoma.
I honestly never imag-
ined I would have can-
cer as an otherwise
healthy 23-year-old
young man. However, I
have witnessed first-
hand how people of all
ages from children to
the elderly are battling
this disease every day.
Throughout my treat-
ment, I have realized
that those with cancer
today are fortunate to
have many state-of-the-
art treatments that did
not ,exist in the past.


Doctors and medical re-
searchers across the
country are constantly
making advancements
in finding new ways to
cure cancer. But the bat-
tle against cancer ex-
tends way beyond the
medical field, making it
vital to have the enthusi-
astic support of people
from all walks of life.
Your participation in
Relay For Life will help
create awareness in our
community, raise mon-
ey for research and gen-
eryte support for cancer
patients and survivors.
I hope.you will join me
Ap il 28-29 to be part of
this deserving cause. I
realize your commit-


ment to the Relay will
involve a sacrifice of
time and energy, but I
encourage you to con-
sider your efforts a small
price to pay for helping
those who are working
to triumph over their
disease. Please contact
Event Chair Marti Carv-
er at 688-0332 or Ameri-
can Cancer Society Staff
Partner Maureen Ger-
main at 888-295-6787 if
you are interested in get-
ting involved.
I look forward to see-
ing you there as we
work together in the
fight against cancer.

Sincerely,

Wellborn News from Linda Dye for March 29, 2006


Wellborn's population has
grown by one. So, let me intro-
duce you to the newest mem-
ber of our outback family ...
snips, snails and puppy dog
tails ... isn't that what a child-
hood nursery rhyme says that
little boys are made of?
Congratulations to Darin and
Delaina Wilson on the newest
addition to their family, a son,
Jaron Blade Wilson, who was
bom on March 15, at 11:45
a.m., in Gainesville, at the
Women's Center at North
Florida Regional Medical Cen-
ter. Jaron Blade weighed in at 6
pounds, 9 ounces, and mea-
sured 19-1/2 inches long. Jaron
joins: sister, Kayla, 8; brother,
Jarrett, 5; brother, Justin, 4; and
baby sister Kenzie, 2. Accord-
ing to Jaron's mom, big sister
Kayla has already become
quite the guardian angel to her
new baby brother. With all the
love surrounding him, how can
Jaron be anything but a very
happy, contented baby.
The'Wellbom Neighborhood
Watch (WNW) will hold its
monthly meeting on Thursday,
March 30, at 7 p.m., at Blake
Lowe Community Center
(BLCC) located at 1517 4th
Ave., which is north of the rail-
road tracks in Wellborn. The
WNW meeting is a great op-
portunity for those who are
new to Wellborn and its sur-
rounding outback area to get
acquainted with their WNW
members and District Four
County Commissioner Billy
Maxwell.'
Commissioner Maxwell will
be guest speaker for this
month's meeting. Light re-
freshments will be served af-
terwards.

BLCC. Meetings begin at 7
p.m., and all citizens are invit-
ed. New members are wel-


come. For more information,
call Jane Campbell at 386-963-
3196.
Brides, babies and birthdays
have filled the outback's social
calendar this month. But then I
can think of no better way to
rejoice in the different cycles
of life than with these special
moments. First came the bride,
Heather Stansel, then came the
baby, Jaron Blade Wilson and
now last, but most certainly not
least, comes March's special
birthday girl ... our outback's
very own Daisy "Miss Daisy"
Barrett who turned 90 years
young on Saturday, March 25.
This past Sunday, March 26,
after the evening church ser-
vice, Miss Daisy's family and
friends gathered in the fellow-
ship hall of Wellborn Baptist
Church to help her celebrate
this wonderful milestone in her
life. Miss Daisy, who lives in
Wellborn with son, Dale Bar-
rett, and his wife, Tammy, and
their daughter, Francheska, en-
joyed cake, ice cream and
punch with all but two of her
six children. Son Benny and
his wife, Glenda, traveled from
Georgetown, Ky., for mama's
big bash, while son Bobby and
his wife, Jean, came from Ver-
sailles, Ky., and daughter Ruth
Ann Garnett journeyed all the
way from Mooresville, Ind., to
spend this special time with her
mother. Two of Miss Daisy's
children, eldest son Richard, of
Winchester, Ky., and eldest
daughter, Charlene and her
husband, Harold, of Lexington,
Ky. were unable to attend. It
was good to see Tammy, Miss
Daisy's daughter-in-law, with a
smile on her pretty face. Tam-
my recently lost her father,
Everett Hobbs, of Live Oak,
who passed away Feb. 10, after
a long battle with cancer. I like
to believe that by celebrating
life, we give honor also to

Operation Smile "Sewing Bee"


On Jan. 10 members of
GFWC Woman's Club
of Live Oak gathered at
the club house to make
child-sized hospital
gowns, "smile ditty
bags" and faceless dolls
for Operation Srmile.
The women spend sev-
eral hours cutting,
sewing and pressing the
items. All material has
been donated by club
members.
Those participating in
the sewing bee were
Nancy Allen-president,
Eileen Box, Erie Lane,
Mary Belle Matthews,
Jan Pearce, Susan Ruda,


Lynn Rutherford,
Dorothy Smith, Dawn
Strickland, Candace
Winkler and Janet The-
riault-Operation Smile
chairman.
Two faceless dolls and
two gowns were com-
pleted. Material for sev-
eral other gowns, dolls
and smile bags were cut
out and are ready for
members to complete.
The dolls are made
without faces and given
to patients so they can
draw their own faces on
them as they wish to
look. Many of these pa-
tients are severely de-


formed by their birth
defects. The Smile dolls
help to diminish anxiety
and communicate the
objective of the proce-
dure they will undergo.
They are used by child
life therapists to allevi-
ate the fear of anesthe-
sia masks, needles and
other medical proce-
dures.
The Smile bags are
filled with items such as
toys, pencils, pads and
toiletries for them to
take home along with
their Smile doll.
Refreshments were
served.

interior and exterior of your home.
A These color styling tricks may help you with your particular decorating
demands:
Contrasting colors emphasize a handsome piece of furniture or a beautiful art object
can be accentuated by placing it against a wall painted a contrasting color. Attractive
architectural features such as molding can be emphasized by painting them a darker or
lighter color than the walls.
Color can establish a focal point or create interest where tlere is none, For instance, a
perfectly square room call be made more interesting by painting one wall ill an accent
color.
Using the same color or a slightly diffcrcnl shade of the same color will have a
unifying effect. For instance, thle exterior of a home made with different materials (brick
and wood) can look pulled together ifone color paint is used on the entire house.
Color canll create the appearance of heightening or lowering --- using information when
dealing with a too-high ceiling or exaggerated roof. A dark color paint oil a high ceiling
will make it seem lower. An exaggerated roof will be millnimized with a dark color.
Color can alter tile proportions o' a room. A long, narrow room call be made to appear
wider by painting both shorter walls a darker color tan the longer walls.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: What is trismus?
A. Trismus is the term used to describe
any restriction to mouth opening, including
those caused by trauma, surgery,
radiation and TMJ (temperomandibular
joint) problems. The limitation in opening
can be caused by, among other things,
damage to facial muscles and nerves,
scar tissue, infection and damage to the
TMJ. A lack of mobility in the mouth can
cause problems. Speech, for instance, is
difficult when the mouth doesn't open
properly. Oral hygiene can' also be
impeded. The inability to chew properly
can impact a patient's nutrition. With
cancer patients, trismus most often is a
result of scar tissue that accumulates from
radiation or surgery, nerve damage, or a
combination of those factors. Early
treatment of trismus cam minimize some
of the conditions. Gentle movement of the
jaws several times a day is more effective
than extreme stretching in reducing
inflammation and pain. Talk with your
dentist about any difficulty you have in
opening your mouth completely.

'Biggest And Best'



All Ages Remember County's Past Fourths


By Harold Dennis
Oldsters joined with youngsters as all Suwannee County
highways and byways led to the impressive Bicentennial Fourth
of July opening day program on Saturday throughout the
expansive Coliseum area.
It was a day of fellowship and picnic reunions for the oldsters
'who recalled Fourth of July and Fair celebrations herd over a
myriad of past decades. For an untold number of youngsters it
was moments of wonderment, thrills, contests and 'oodles of hot
dawgs, hamburgers, watermelon and cold drinks.
APOLOGIZING FOR A BEARD. that reached to his chest
because "it's not as long or as full as when I won the "Best
Beard" award at the county's big 1951 Centennial event" was
Arnett Hillhoust, 63, of McAlpln.
"This is the biggest and best event of its kind ever staged in
this county and I've seen them all, being born on a McAlpin farm.
Sure glad I didn't miss this one," Hillhoust declared as he
happily shook hands with "a lot of folks I haven't seen in a year
or more."
Jerry Bomon, a grey but spry 71-year-old who "had to come in
from my Nobles Ferry Road farm to see what was going on".
noted that he had not missed any July Fourth or Fair events in
Live Oak for 65 years..
Yep, ktr', have changed but this is really great and it %as
easier to get here this time A Int of those other years we had to
come b) wagon and mules," Bomon. a cattle and corn farmer.
recalled as he joined nis oldest daughter and grand children from
While Springs to watch nneof the aried contests.
Checking ir enthusiastically with his wiie and tour grand
children was Chester Jenkins, 63, of Sr-132, "the Ellaville area
where I have farmed with everything but an ox."
Noting that he had attended every special celebration and Fair
in the county since 1919, the alert father of County Assessor
Lamar Jenkins cited that'"back in those years we came,
horseback or with the mules and wagon. Throughout the year, we
ohly got to town every month or so when we would load up
groceries, ere at the old C W FRogers store. You know., we eten
made our own soap then so we had to get potash and other sluff or
do without "
JOEL HALLMAN.-li. OF Newbern Road arrived with his wife.
and their three girls and son from McAlpin "Been here since '57
and this Is the best", said Hallman who left Arkansas for Pasco
County out soon mused to Suwannee County to stay as he
married the former Mae Vanna Fennell of McAlpin
"We appreciate this day here and all is fuin and relaxation
from the farm where we are kept busy with hogs, cattle and a
good corn crop," Hallman added
-"Just define me as a native and one who has been attending
July Fourth and other celebrations here since my toddling
days," offered Mrs. Sheila Burnham. 20, o01 Live ak "This sure
is the biggest and best-never a dull monient-and everybody is
having such a grand time, and that. seems to go for all the
political candidates here including my husband who, you know,
is running for County Tax Collector," she alertly inserted.
Among many from the Hamilton County sector of White
Springs was Wade Bullard, 48, who set forth that "my wife and I
with the two boys, Jerry and John, are out for a big July Fourth
weekend, starting now. This sure was the right place to-start,
because this is wonderful."
From his farm where he said he was "about half way through

break' which "the family will continue at the special Sunday
Stephen Foster Memorial all-day program It was son, John.
who earned notable applause from the nearly-filled Coliseum as
he entertained b) singing a goodly number of patriotic songs
AN UNSCHEDULED APPEARANCE and observation came
as one passed the Cake Walk event staged inside the Coliseum In
the entry line for one of the Walks was Mrs Goldie Gaylard.
County School Board member from Wellborn, patriotically
dressed in red, white and blue with a '"straw skimmer" hat
Competing with County Clerk Jerry A. Scarborough and some
dozen others.
Here it is to give a special salute to a lady who in between
helping with the farming-tobacco harvesting chores and caring
for four children, brought the family to the celebration "really all
dressed up."
SMrs. Harvey Carroll of Rt. 4, the Branford Highway, found
time and enough Bicenennial-designed yard goods to make the
children respective shirts and dresses as well as her husband a
shirt and herself a Colonial-styled dress and bonnet-all
matching.
"I'm a native of Corpus Christi, Tex., but my husband is a
Suwannee Countan and after seven years here, I love it All of us
'are really having a great holiday here today," M.s Carroll said
as she steered her brood towards the sack races.
When tre music stopped and the "lucky number" drawn by a
spectator, it a as Mrs Gaylard who was the winner Scarborough
moved on to the County City officials egg tossing event where he
scored better.
ONE OLD-TIMER WHO "DON'T want any publicity" did offer
a bit of history as to former celebrations here. Referring to the
'358 celebration here, he said "There is just one thing missing
today In '58 they had 'jails' ail over town and though it was all in
fun. they really locked up a lot of people It was just horseplay
but some that got mad. didrt I get out for several hours Well,*
times and ,deas have changed. Guess these contests and such are
much better,"

It wasn't entirely unlike the atmosphere usually reserved for
the Kentucky Derby outside the Suwannee County Coliseum
Saturday evening as three horses and their riders competed for
the honor of Fastest horse in the county.
LINDA CUNDIFF CROSSED THE finish line reining in her
swift steed "Calico Chief'" after he had far and away proved
himself worthy of the title. Linda traversed the quarter mile
straightaway at break neck speed while the crowd of onlookers
shouted encouragement.
Glenda Box fialabed the race in second place on her horse
"Am's Rebel Top". Tony Box completed the course in tirrd place
on "Copper's Top".
The firt two riders won red, white and blue trohes courtesy
of the bicentennial committee but a third award went to a "horse
of another color." Mahone Smith was awarded the dubious
distlnctioe of having the slowest horse,.actually a mule "Jack",
in the competition which Involved 42 riders andanimuals.


The finals of the horse race came at 7 p.m. Saturday rather
than Sunday afternoon as scheduled because everyone wanted to
get it underway. The three trophy winners received their awards
at intermissionof the final day otfrodeo action.

Larry Snider took the opportunity to present two Bicentennial
flags to two youngsters who represented Suwannee Primary

among the pupils. Both flags had flown ovf thetchool during the

Federal hosted their annual
track meet Saturday, March
18. It was an all-day event
with nine teams competing.
Suwannee's boys' track team
won the boys meet and
Suwannee girls placed sec-
ond. There were many great
individual performances as
well as team efforts.
Suwannee took the girls'
4x400 win when Kelsey
Bowen drove the Santa Fe
runner so hard in an effort to
catch her and win, the Santa
Fe runner collapsed just inch-
es from the finish line. The
Santa Fe girl eventually
dragged herself over the line
to complete the race. It was
an awesome finish for Bowen
as she pushed herself and the
Santa Fe runner to the ab-
solute limit.


Gwenette "Sierra" Demps
took first place for the
Suwannee girls team in the
100 meter dash. This was a
first for Demps with a blazing

Melody Christian Academy 3-1 for season


On Monday, March 13,
Melody Christian Academy
traveled to Gainesville to take
on Cornerstone Christian
Academy. In the end Melody
was forced to take the win by
a score of 12 to 8. The bright
spots for Melody were the
combined hitting of Rusty
Grinnell and Tyler Smith as
they went four for five with
two doubles and two singles.
Kolby Bispham was
Melody's winning pitcher.
Melody's batters made 29
official trips to the plate and


were 'struck out 15 times.
These sane batters drew 15
walks. Melody's pitchers
struck out 12 opposing bat-
ters and walked 10. Only four
of the 12 runs Melody had
were earned, and by the same
token only two of Corner-
stone's eight runs were
earned. Melody committed
six errors while Cornerstone
had two.
Coach Baldwin was grate-
ful to come away with the
third win of the season.
Melody traveled to Palatka


on Friday, March 17 to take
on Peniel Baptist Academy.
Peniel was 3-0.
Classy pitching and hitting
by Peniel defeated Melody in
the first loss of the season.
Coach Baldwin said inconsis-
tency hurt his team's chance
of winning. Peniel wo.n 14 to
4 in less than six innings.
Peniel's pitcher controlled
the game from the start strik-
ing out nine, giving up only
three hits, allowing four runs,
of which only one was eared.
Peniel's hitters gave their


pitcher all the help he needed
as they connected on 13 hits
of which three were for extra
bases, and there were more
for extra bases because of
head's up base running.
Peniel's death blow inning
came in the fourth as they
sent 14 batters to the plate
producing 10 runs on nine
hits and six Melody errors.
Not a single walk was issued
until the fourth which indicat-
ed classy hitting by Peniel
and sloppy throwing and
fielding by Melody.

the year to break Ryan
Stovall's season record of
seven homers.
This is how it all went
down according eye-wit-
ness accounts. The game
was 5-4 Suwannee as Co-
lumbia stepped up to the
plate in the top of the
fifth inning. Billy Moran
had come into the game to
relieve Nick Reppert, the
starting pitcher. One run
scored and the scoring Co-
lumbia player celebrated
his success vocally in
front of the Suwannee fans
and dugout. The next bat-
ter grounded one to
Moran, who snagged it and
tagged the runner out be-
fore he got to first base.
Moran used too much
force in the tag out and
that's when the Columbia
coach felt the need to
dump Billy.
"'Yes it was a very spirit-
ed game," said Coach
Ronnie Gray. But no play-
ers or coaches were eject-
ed !" Daniel Tillman,
currently 3-0, relieved
Moran in the sixth. Till-
man pitched three innings,
going into one extra inning
when the score remained
tied at 5-5. Tillman picked
up his third win of the sea-
son.
"Daniel Tillman showed
great determination in a
situation where most play-
ers collapse," Gray said. "I

now feel capable of pitch-

and being successful."
As if that wasn't enough
excitement for one game,
Matt Yanossy hit a game-
winning home run in the
eighth. Yanossy went 4-5
at the plate with a run
scored and two RBIs: But
it was Yanossy's heroics in
the eighth, according to
Gray, that told the story of
this incredible game.
Yanossy stepped to the
plate in a 5-5 tie in the top
of the eighth and fell be-
hind 0-2 in the count.
Yanossy, a senior, the
Gained ille Sui's' Defen-
sive Soccer Player of the
Year in 2004, a kid who
had to rehab twice from
ACL tears, and a cool cus-
tomer, whacked an 0-2
breaking pitch from left-
hander Danny Guanung
over the rightfield fence.
The homer won the lucky,
number-13 game of the
year for the Dogs 6-5.
"Offensively, we came out

Gray said. "We hit around
in the first inning, sending
11 hitters to the plate in
the first inning and getting
nine hits and scoring five
runs. After that it got
tough."
Nick Reppert started and
threw very well, according
to Gray. Gray said Reppert

hitting a double, followed by
Brooklyn Ross and Lea
Schenck also hitting doubles.
The flurry of hits put two runs
on the scoreboard for the
Lady Dogs. Suwannee went
scoreless in the second inning,
but in the third inning, Cash
and Chelsea Davis walked
and Schenck and Dale
Townsend both hit base hits
to score the two base runners.
In the fourth inning, with two
outs, Cash hit another double
but was unable to score.
In the fifth inning Brooklyn
Ross hit a triple, Schenck sin-
gled and Ross scored. Mary
Badgerow hit a double and
scored Schenck sending
.Suwannee's tally to six runs.
The Lady Dogs remained
scoreless in the sixth and sev-
enth innings.
Defensively Suwannee
gave up four unearned runs.
Lea Schenck pitched all sev-
en. innings, and had eight
strike outs. Fortunately
Suwannee's bats kept the lead
over Middleburg for the 6 to
4. win.
The very next night, March
14, Suwannee traveled to Tal-
lahassee to play Florida High.
This made it twice the Lady.
Dogs had played Florida High
this season.
Suwannee's bats were slow
to start but in the fourth in-
ning a few walks mixed in


with four hits put a whopping
eight runs on the board for the
Lady Dogs.
Suwannee scored only one
more run and that in the sev-
enth inning. The Lady Dogs
finished the night with nine
runs for the night and Florida
High had three runs.
Lea Schehck started on the
mound and pitched five in-
nings and recorded seven
strike outs. Dale Townsend
came in and pitched the last
two innings, recording her
first save for Suwannee High
A fielding highlight came
when Brittany Jordan had a
ground ball hit to her in right
field and was able to throw a
base runner, who had been on
second base, out at home
plate. Jordan was also respon-
sible for catching a fly ball
deep in right field, threw the
ball to Lea Schenck, now
playing at first base, who
threw to Badgerow. Suwan-
nee was able to turn a double
play since the runner had
headed home when Jordan
caught the fly ball and heads-
up defense got the runner out.
Jordan had not been avail-
able to the Suwannee defense
until this week of play due to:
an inflammation in her shoul-
der. According to coach Jan
Schenck, she played a great
game .defensively and was
also responsible for a hit
which scored two runs.
For the third night in a row,


Suwannee would again hop
on a bus and this time it was
bound for Bradford and the
second district game of the
week. Suwannee beat Brad-
ford in the first game they
played 3 1.
"We knew this would be a
difficult district game because
Santa Fe and Bradford had
played a 15 inning game
about one week before, and
Santa Fe finally won that
game," Schenck said.
Suwannee took the game to
11 innings. Unfortunately
Suwannee only came away
with two hits, one by Lea_.
Schenck, and the other by Jor-
dan, but neither would be able
to score. All the way up and
until the 11th inning Suwan-
nee's defense was doing great,
no errors had allowed a run to
score.
But in the 11th inning, with
two outs already recorded,
pitcher Lea Schenck gave up
a base hit and then an error at
second base allowed two
baserunners on. The players
were faced with a possible
scoring situation when they
could have been out of the in-
ning. A Bradford player who
had already struck out three
times came up with a base.hit
up the middle to send Brad-
ford wins 1 0. It was a great
game even though Suwannee
lost.
Lea Schenck had 12 strike
outs and pitched a great game,


especially after pitching 23
innings in three days.
The Lady Dogs traveled
again on Tuesday, March 21.
It was a new week, but the
Lady Dogs were still heading
out qf town. A new week and
again a second round playing
a district opponent.
Suwannee was aching for
revenge over the 5-7 loss to
Baker the first time they
played them. This time Baker
would face pitcher, Lea
Schenck. Schenck threw a
complete game even though
she is experiencing back pain,


had 10 strike outs and didn't
give up a hit until the sixth in-
ning.
Baker ended up scoring
three runs in the sixth with
two outs. Two infield errors
allowed the runs to score.
Suwannee didn't score until
the third inning. The Lady
Dogs put two runs on the
scoreboard when Cash got
walked and stole second.:
Davis reached first base on a
dropped third strike, and Ross
hit a big double scoring Cash
and Davis.
In the fourth inning, Bad-


gerow walked and moved
around the bases when Jessica
Johnson and Kalie Baldwin
hit singles. Badgerow scored
off a wild pitch. After going
scoreless in the fifth, Suwan-
nee put three more runs on
the board in the sixth. Jordan
hit a triple, Johnson walked,
and Cash singled. With the
help of a fielding error
Suwannee scores three.
Suwannee beat Baker 6-3.
The last three wins put the
Lady Dog's record at 10-6
overall and 4-5 in district
play.

hogs with dogs without per-
mission of the landowner.
Heath charged both subjects
with trespass other than
structure or conveyance.
March 1.0, Officers Alan
Hofmeister and Michael
Goodwin, along with Re-
serve Officer Richard Harts-
field, responded to an
anonymous report of two
men in possession of an alli-
gator. Upon the officer's ar-


rival, both men were read
their Miranda rights before
being questioned. The two
men confessed to killing a
four-foot alligator on nearby
property. The head of the
alligator was removed from
the body and the body was
buried in the back yard of
the residence. The subject
intended on keeping the
head which was found near
a storage shed. The body
was subsequently recovered
and photographed. Both
men were charged with un-
lawful possession of an alli-
gator.

SUWANNEE COUNTY
Officer Dwain Mobley
has been working informa-
tion on illegal turkey hunt-
ing in Suwannee County.
After working the area sev-
eral mornings, he finally
made contact with a suspect.
The individual was in full
camo with a 12-gauge shot-
gun loaded with turkey shot
and using a turkey call.
When approached, the sub-
ject said he was calling coy-
ote. The individual was
charged with attempting to


take wild turkey during
closed season. The shotgun
and turkey call were seized.

TAYLOR COUNTY
March 10, Officers An-
drew. Bickel and Chad
Albritton conducted a citi-
zen contact on two individu-
als at Fenholloway boat
ramp. During the contact,
the subjects gave permission
to the officers to look
through their vehicle. After
the driver exited the vehicle,
he lunged back into the ve-
hicle and was restrained by
Albritton. As the subject
was being restrained, he
threw a baggie containing
crack cocaine onto the side
of the road. As this was oc-
curring, Bickel was remov-
ing the passenger from the
vehicle and located a crack
pipe on the subject's lap. A
thorough search of the vehi-
cle also revealed a loaded

Diabetes complications rooted in faulty cell rep

assistant professor of

and transplantation at UF's
College of Medicine and
colleagues provide ground-
breaking research.

Fridl Ross
University of
Florida re-
searchers say
primitive cells
that act like
molecular

men travel-
ing throughout
the body to re-
pair damaged
blood vessels -
become too
,rigid to move in
patients with
diabetes, fuel-
ing the disease's
vascular com-
plications. But
they have found
a way to restore
the cells' flexi-
bility, at least in
the laboratory,,


according to findings published in the
January issue of the journal Diabetes.
Having diabetes markedly raises the
risk of developing a host of other ail-
ments, from heart disease to stroke,
blindness and kidney failure. Many
arise after blood vessels suffer damage,
spurring the accumulation of fatty de-
posit's in the arteries or the wild, blind-
ing growth of capillaries in the eye.
"We're interested in what happens in
the body at the molecular level to cause
these life-threatening problems," said
-Mark S. Segal, Ph.D., an assistant pro-
fessor of nephrology, hypertension and
transplantation at UF's College of Med-.
icine. "Our work is focused,on under-
standing why diabetic patients are at
increased risk for these other diseases."
The problem is rooted in the body's
response to vascular injury. The bone
marrow churns out cells crucial to re-
pairing the damaged lining of blood
vessels. But sometimes they fail to re-
port for duty.
"Part of the detect we think is occur-

ring 'in diabetic patients is these cells do
not carry out appropriate repair, and
therefore these patients are at higher
risk for cardiovascular disease and oth-
er complications," Segal said.
The inability of the cells to repair the
peripheral vasculature, the large ves-
sels of the body, is similar to their in-
ability to repair the small vessels with-
in the eye, he added.
"In the vasculature it leads to athero-
sclerosis, and within the eye it leads to
diabetic retinopathy," he said. "So the
link is' we have one defect in these cells
that can lead to both of these prob-
lems."
UF researchers isolated these repair
cells from blood samples drawn from
patients with diabetes and chronic kid-
ney disease and studied them in the
laboratory. The cells were unable to
move about normally. But when nitric
oxide gas was added, Segal said, the
cells lost their rigidity, becoming sup-
pler, and their ability to move dramati-
cally improved.
In the body, nitric oxide occurs natu-
rally. It helps the repair cells move out
of the bone marrow 'where they are
made, and it opens blood vessels and
improves the uptake of oxygen. Patients
with diabetes, however, commonly
have low levels of nitric oxide.
"We went on to show that actually
what's happening is nitric oxide is af-
fecting the skeleton, or scaffold of the
cell, and by adding nitric oxide we're
able to rearrange the scaffold," Segal
said. "When we rearrange the scaffold,
the cells are able to migrate. The benefit
of this is that when cells have improved
movement they' are able to repair the
endothelium (the lining of the blood
vessels) better and perhaps prevent ath-
Prosclerosis."
UF scientists suspect that in the cells
taken from diabetic patients, nitric oxide
interacts with a protein that steers the
protein to the cell surface instead of in-
serting it into the cell as it would in
healthy people. That causes the cell to
stiffen.
The finding raises the possibility that
nitric oxide could someday be used to


keep the cells mobile, en-
abling them to travel to dis-
tant sites when needed, Se-
gal said.
"The importance of this is
related to other work that
has shown that many drugs
being, used. on the market
today actually affect nitric
oxide levels within these
cells," Segal said. "So
someday there may be two
ways to help. people whose
cells may not function as
well as they should. One is
through certain medica-
tions there may be a way
we could actually give
medications that would af-
fect the nitric oxide levels
within these cells and en-
hance their migratory abili-
ty. The other is through cer-
tain instances where we
might actually collect these
cells, treat them with nitric
oxide outside the body and
give them back to patients,
to help improve the cells'
migration ability."
In the future, for exam-
ple, patients with diabetes
and atherosclerosis who re-
quire angioplasty might re-
ceive injections of their
own repair cells. The cells
would be removed,' incu-
bated with nitric oxide to
improve their function and
then returned. They would
theoretically help blood
vessels heal more quickly,
and perhaps keep new fatty
deposits from forming, Se-
gal speculated,
The research grew out of
previous work at UF in col-
laboration with UF bio-
chemist Daniel Purich,
Ph.D., and pharmacologist
Maria Grant, M.D. UF rha-
terials scientist Roger Tran-
Son-Tay, Ph.D., among oth-

Bay Breeze Realty...stronger than ever!


Linda Wicker began
Baybreeze Realty in 1999 in a
two bedroom mobile home.
With Wicker's drive and
determination. the business
quickly grew.
As the business prospered,
her son, Ben Wicker, moved
from Gainesville to help with
the growing business.
In May of 2001 the
business moved into its
current location next to Roy's
Restaurant in Steinhatchee.
Before moving in, much
remodeling was needed due to
the "Storm of the Century" in
1993. Money was needed to


complete this project so
Wicker and her son sold lots
to pay for the remodeling, still
ending up short.
Through the help kof a good
friend's loan, the building was
completed.
Real estate work began
with a super location and
view. Linda Wicker works as
the broker and oversees the
general operations, sales,
listings and marketing, as well
as training agents.
Linda Wicker says she
enjoys helping her employees
accomplish their potential as
agents and achieving their


goals
and dreams. This makes her
work satisfying and rewarding.

Signs of back problems


Not too long ago, chiropractic
medicine was a relatively new
practice, with few people realizing
the positive impact chiropractic care
could have on their health. Over the
years, the healing effects of
chiropractic medicine have done a
great deal to lift the stigma that
chiropractic care is not equivalent to
traditional forms of medical
treatment, so much so that insurance
companies are now beginning to
offer plans that cover alternative and
complementary treatments, which
include trips to your chiropractor.

If such is the case with your
insurance provider, determining the
right time to go to a chiropractor can
be a tough call. The following
symptoms, courtesy of the Ontario
Chiropractic Association, are all
strong indicators that you might be
suffering from back problems that
could prove damaging in the near or,
distant future and may require
chiropractic-care:

* Numbness in your legs. A tingling
and/or weakness in your legs,
especially after periods of inactivity
or when not doing something
strenuous, could be signs of
something,bigger.
. Pain while coughing or sneezing. A
simple cough or a sneeze should not
normally be accompanied by-back or
leg pain. A"ibolent sneeze"zor cough'"
is one thing, but persistent pain in
your back and legs whenever you-
sneeze or cough is indicative of
possible back problems.

Difficulty standing up. Problems
getting up after sitting for any period
of time are not healthy. While
everyone experiences difficulty

standing up from certain seats (i.e.,
deep and setback couches, extra soft
easy chairs, etc.), difficulty standing
up after sitting on a dinner table chair
or other chairs not too soft or low to
the ground could be a sign of back
problems.

* Morning stiffness. If each morning
you awaken you feel stiff, and the
stiffness does not decrease until
you've moved around, an
examination is necessary.

* Consistent pain in other areas of the
body. Knee and.foot problems as well
as pain in your hips, buttocks or
thighs could be indicative of back
pain. Oftentimes, an aching back will
cause you to subconsciously adjust
to ease the pain. This can cause you
to adjust the way you walk, which can
result in problems in other parts of
your body.

Unbalanced posture. If your
shoulder is higher on one side than
the other or you notice your head or
neck favoring one side, you could be
overcompensating for back pain.

- Problems sleeping. Insomnia.can be
caused by many things. However, if
you're otherwise healthy but still
experiencing pain and difficulty
getting comfortable, back pain is
likely the.culprit and it might be time
lto seek professional help.'

* Trouble turning or bending.
Problems with flexibility to each side
are often indicative of back pain.

New laser makes kids' trip to the dentist less of a pain


(ARA) For many kids,
going to the dentist is as scary
as that imaginary monster under
the bed. Dentists, knowing this,
have been trying to ease
children's dentistry fears for
years. Some dentists dole out
free pencils and costume
jewelry. Others paint fun zoo
animal-filled scenes on walls
and install televisions playing
children's movies. But, so far,
no free gadget or innovation has
had the potential to fully cure
kids' (and even parents') fears
of going to the dentist. Until
now, says one California dentist
whose practice includes patients
from 12 months of age to age
100.
"I have had patients, my own
daughter included, who don't
respond positively to any kind
of anesthesia. For them, having
dental work done is a horrible
experience," says Dr. James
Jesse, a Cdlton, Calif. dentist
and instructor at the Loma
Linda University School of
Dentistry in Loma Linda, Calif.
"I now use a water energized
laser on my patients, the most
advanced dental tool available
today. In most cases, the laser
replaces the need for a shot of
Novocain and the traditional
dental drill. One of my patients,
who doesn't respond to
anesthesia, actually started
clapping after the procedure
was completed. She said it
didn't hurt a bit -- and that's
without any anesthesia."
The laser Jesse is referring to
is the Waterlase MD, the latest
pain-free dentistry device
developed by San Clemente,
California's Biolase
Technology. This technology
allows patients, of most any
age, to undergo cavity
preparation, root canals and
even some mouth surgeries
using only the Waterlase's
combination of water and laser
- no anesthesia is needed in
most cases. The Waterlase MD
is the most significant
advancement to modem
dentistry in over 50 years.
While adults certainly enjoy.
the benefits of the laser,
children miay-benefit the most
from this technology since kids
often fear going to the dentist
because of pain associated with
previous visits. "A visit to the
dentist can be stressful,
especially for kids. But with the
laser, Dr. Jesse is able to make
the experience much more
positive," says Kristine Hunt, a
mother from Lemon Grove,
Calif., whose nine-year old son
recently had a cavity filled
using the Waterlase. "No one
really loves going to the dentist,
but this tool makes it much
easier. My son had a completely
different dental experience with
the Waterlase than I had when I
was a child."
Often the first thought a
parent has about taking their
child to the dentist is their own
nervous recollections of a
shrieking drill and the sting of a
Novocain shot. The last thing
they want to do is put their child
through the same painful
experience. But with the
Waterlase MD, Jesse says
patients have an option for pain-
free dentistry. "I use the
Waterlase on all of my patients,
but it's especially great for kids
because they don't have to get a
shot and they don't have to
worry about biting numbed
lips," he says. '
Waterlase dentists often
educate their child patients by
explaining to the kids how the
cavity will be "sprayed away."
Jesse says he first describes the
laser to his younger patients by
telling them that it's a laser,
"like in the movies." He then
sprays his arm with the laser, so
the kids can understand that it's
just water. Then, he sprays the


I


sound made by the
conventional dental drill. The
fact that the Waterlase doesn't
create the uncomfortable
vibrations that patients feel with
the drill also helps alleviate the
nervousness often felt by
children.
. "This technology offers my
patients the ability to be more
comfortable in the dental chair
having procedures performed.
They experience less anxiety
and the dental work even
becomes a pleasant experience.
There's less trauma to the
patient and less trauma to the
tooth. And, they don't have to
worry about having their face
numb from the anesthesia,"
says Jesse.
Before the Waterlase, the
most innovative recent
advancement in dentistry was
50 years ago with the advent of
the power drill. Biolase CEO
Robert Grant says that 50 years
is too long for patients to go
without a major dentistry
breakthrough, which is why it's
so important that the Waterlase
MD is ushering in the next
generation of dentistry.
"There is obviously a need to


child's wrist to show them that
it doesn't hurt at all. "This
demonstration makes kids
really comfortable having their
mouth worked on. They know
that I'm just using water and
that it didn't hurt their arm so it
won't hurt in their mouth," he
says.
Children also respond well to
the laser's gentle pulsing sound,
which is much different than
the high-pitched screeching

upgrade the dental care
available to American patients,"
says Grant. "The feedback
we're getting from dentists
across the country in support of
the Waterlase is phenomenal.
This technology is changing
their patients' dental experience
forever -- and for parents, it
makes their lives much easier,
knowing their child isn't going
to experience pain and fear at
the dentist."
The Waterlase MD is the
latest product using lasers for
the health benefit of patients.
Along with surgical lasers,
dermatological lasers and vision
correction lasers, patients seem
responsive to this new crop of
less-invasive medical
treatments.
"Because the Waterlase
doesn't make much noise and
doesn't cause any pain, my
patients say a visit to the dentist
is now closer to a visit to the
spa. They just lay in the chair.
and relax," says Jesse.
Dr. Louis Malcmacher, of
Bay Village, Ohio, an
international lecturer on dental
practice management, says "the
laser is also a key tool in


preventative dental
care. Much of the
dental work we see
being performed,on
adults today is a result
of work done when
they were kids. It's not
that the dental work
was bad, but the
trauma caused by drills
destroyed large
portions of the healthy
tooth. In my own
practice I find the laser
is so precise, it actually
helps protect the
patient's tooth from
problems that lead to
root canals, crowns and
other extensive dental work
down the line."
With its laser precision, the
Waterlase MD targets a direct,
small area of the mouth. So,
when a dentist cuts a patient's
hard tissue, such as bone or
teeth, or soft tissue, such as
gums, it causes minimal or no
damage to surrounding tissue.
This surrounding tissue damage
has typically been the culprit
behind a dentist having to numb
a patient's mouth before
treatment, and the patient


experiencing pain and,
sometimes long recoveries after
procedures.
Additionally, the Waterlase
reduces the possibility of micro
fractures, or tiny cracks, in the
patient's tooth, unlike the
traditional drill dentists use
today. Micro fractures can result
in future cavities and weakening
of tooth structure as well as
infections in patients' teeth,
months or even years after the
cracks first occur.
The Waterlase MD employs
the latest in modem technology,


including a design that contains
materials and technology used
by Mercedes Benz and NASA.
However, this high-tech talk
only means one thing -- better
dentistry:
What a relief for parents to
hear their children say, "Going
to the dentist isn't scary
anymore. I didn't like the drill or
the shots. With the Waterlase, it
doesn't hurt."

Glaucoma takes sight without warning


(ARA) What has the power to steal your
eyesight without warning, affects an
estimated 4 million Americans and has no
cure? Glaucoma.
Glaucoma is a group of eye. diseases that
presents no obvious symptoms in its victims
in the early stages, but can eventually lead to
total blindness. It is estimated that half of the
people affected by glaucoma may not know
they have it.
Glaucoma is often a very misunderstood
disease. In spite of the lack of a cure, it
responds well to treatment if detected early.


What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma causes damage to the optic nerve.
The optic nerve is responsible for carrying
images from the eye to the brain, creating the
ability to see. With glaucoma, that nerve is
damaged, causing irreversible vision loss.
There are typically no symptoms or early
warning signs. Glaucoma is painless and
causes gradual vision loss. Early on,
glaucoma can cause a subtle loss of contrast
between objects and their backgrounds. For
example, not being able to distinguish the
curb from the sidewalk.


How can I prevent glaucoma?
The truth is: Glaucoma isn't preventable
and cannot be cured. Nevertheless, it
can be controlled in most patients.
American Optometric Association
(AOA) doctors of optometry urge
Americans, especially those over the
age of 60, to get an annual
comprehensive eye exam. A doctor of
optometry can not only evaluate the
functional status of the eyes and visual
system, but can also detect certain
chronic and systemic diseases such as
glaucoma and diabetes.


With a disease like glaucoma,
p | where there are typically no
early symptoms, an annual eye
exam is essential in helping
sustain your overall eye
health. If diagnosed and
treated early, glaucoma is
manageable. A doctor of
optometry can help patients
maintain their quality of life.


I OR ON AMEP


Who is at risk for
glaucoma?
Everyone is at risk for
glaucoma, but certain groups
run higher risks than others.
These include:
*African-Americans:
Glaucoma is the leading cause
of blindness among African-
Americans. It is six to eight
times more common in
African-Americans than in
Caucasians.
* People over 60: Glaucoma is
much more common among
older adults. People over the
age of 60 are six times more
likely to get glaucoma than
those under 60.
* Family members: The most
common type of glaucoma,
known as primary open angle
glaucoma, is hereditary. If
members of your immediate
family have that type of
glaucoma, you are at a much
higher risk than the rest of the
population. Family history
increases a person's risk of
glaucoma by four to nine
times.
* Eye injury: Injury to the eye
may cause secondary open
angle glaucoma. This type of
glaucoma can occur
immediately after an injury or
years later. Blunt injuries that
bruise the eye (called blunt
trauma) or injuries that
penetrate the eye can'damage
the eye's drainage system,
leading to traumatic glaucoma.
The most common cause of
secondary open angle
glaucoma is a sports-related
injury such as baseball or
boxing.

Other risk factors
In addition to the above
groups of people and
categories of risk and injury
associated with glaucoma,
other risk factors that make
people more prone to the
disease include:
High myopia
(nearsightedness)
Diabetes
Hypertension

What can you do to reduce
your risk?
The most helpful advice
concerning glaucoma is to
keep in mind the importance
of early detection through
annual eye examinations from
your doctor of optometry.
Medicare patients at high risk
for glaucoma can receive
dilated eye examinations as a
benefit of Medicare coverage.
The 2006 Medicare Fee
Schedule expands the
definition of an eligible
beneficiary under the
glaucoma screening benefit to
include Hispanic Americans.
age 65 and over effective Jan.
1, 2006. Currently eligible
beneficiaries are individuals
with diabetes mellitus,
individuals with a family
history of glaucoma and
African-Americans age 50 and
over. The AOA provides a
Glaucoma/Diabetes Hotline
program which matches
patients with participating
optometrists in their area. For
more information about the
AOA Glaucoma/Diabetes
Hotline, please call (800) 262-
3947.

Hexler, ReaCer, 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.
