.Underage drinking discussed at meeting


I Timely topic precedes prom night


Vanessa Fultz ,
Democrat Reporter
The Drug-Free Coalition of
Suwannee County held its sec-
ond town hall meeting to dis-
cuss underage drinking among,
local youth March 27. Several


panel members were represent-
ed ranging from students to lo-
cal leaders.
Key points in the discussion
were need for parents to step up
to the plate and organizations,
agencies, ministers and others
to network to provide resources
for parents and teens.


Sheriff Tony Cameron
opened the discussion with a
few comments about the issue.
He pointed out that alcohol is a
gateway drug to cocaine and
other hard-core drugs. He also
said once young people abuse
alcohol they lose ability to rea-
son and have the mindset they
are -jntouchable, which often
leads to injury or death.
Cameron also addressed par-


ents' responsibility in the mat-
ter. He said some parents think.
if they allow their children to
drink at home they won't drink
elsewhere.'
Camerion also highlighted the
numerous accidents occurring
on roads involving teens who
drink at parties and the negative
affects alcohol has on the brain

School personnel changes made


Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter
Several school personnel
changes were approved for
the School District in.a


Interim School Board
Business Director Sandra
Parker. Photo: Vanessa Fultz


Board meeting March 28.
Sandra Parker will serve,
as the interim business di-
rector for the School Board
until someone is hired for
the position. The District
will soon advertise the posi-
tion. The move was made as
a result of the untimely
death of Business Director
Rick Norris recently.
The Board said it is im-
-,porqant to get someone in
the position immediately
-* since the District is still un-
dergoing a series of audits.
"We will not have our
closeout audit until June and
budgeting starts in July,"
School Superintendent Wal-
ter Boatright said at the
meeting. "Because of the
tasks falling on her (Park-
er's) shoulders we thought


this was the best move. San-
dra will serve in this posi-
tion until such a time we
can And a replacement."
Parker previously served
as the supervisor of finance
in the School Board Busi-
ness Department.
"I've been in the depart-
ment for 32 years, so really,
the only change is I will
have a lot more work," she
said.
Also several reconfiguri-
tions of administration were
approved due to the new el-
ementary school set to open
in the fall. Suwannee Ele-
mentary School (SES) As-
sistant Principal/Curriculum
Coordinator Lila Udell will
serve as 'a principal for SES

HISTORICAL MOMENT BUT IDENTITY LOST: When' Burnice O'Hara took this photo sometime
in 1982-83 at the old train depot, where State Rep. Dwight Stansel's office is now is located,
O'Hara never thought about this becoming a historical photograph. The name of the wagon
and mule owner is unknown, but O'Hara said the man on the wagon raised vegetables, chick-
ens, eggs and other products and sold them in town from his wagon. "On the way home I
stopped and asked if I could take his photo, he said 'sure, but I don't know why you would
want a picture of me,"" O'Hara said. O'Hara thanked the man, but said the man replied, "No
sir, I thank you!" A week later the gentlemen and his mule were killed when hit by a vehicle,
O'Hara said. Did you know this man? Please let us know his identity. Photo: Burnice O'Hara

The folks down at City Hall have
had a lot of fun with the matter of
cleaning City Hall. I have taken a
lot of ribbing about cleaning bath-
rooms. I do a good job. I had a good
teacher, Diane taught me well. As I
sit writing this article, Delores is
cleaning windows, Sally is dusting
and vacuuming, and Shannon is
sweeping and emptying trash. I'll
be cleaning the men's bathroom BY SONNY
shortly. They have also been busy
down in finance cleaning and throwing out. Finance Director
Jan Parkhurst, Administrator.Bob Farley and all the girls have
been busy in their area making room for much needed office
and storage space. Even City Clerk McCullers has been on a
cleaning tear. Jimmy found a dozen chicken wings from the
Lantern buried on his desk that he lost several months ago.
April fool's, just kidding about the wings. Everyone down
here has pitched in and done their share in keeping City Hall
as clean and presentable as possible. I recognize and applaud
all of them for their efforts. This is just one example of how
your employees of the city work so well together to get the
job done, regardless of.what it is. Hopefully a resolution to
the matter was decided at the meeting Thursday night. I rec-
ommended to the Council that a part time employee be hired
rather than go with a cleaning service. The employee will
work three mornings a week for three hours. This move will
save approximately $5,424 as opposed to the bid price for
cleaning services. All of us at City Hall will certainly appre-
ciate the help.
.1 continue to get reports of vandalism and theft at the Live
Oak Cemetery. I hd .a very mature and self assured 5-year-
old young lady come into my office this last week and ex-
pressed her displeasure over the fact that an angel had been
stolen from her grandmother's grave. She was very distraught
over this matter. I told her I would attempt to find the angel
and bring the one who stole it to justice. I ask for your help.,
It was a cast concrete angel about two and one half feet tall.
It was painted to have a marble appearance. I would suspect
it has been placed at another gravesite elsewhere. If anyone
has knowledge of a like angel appearing at a cemetery re-
cently, please let us know.
There's a new restaurant in town. The Grace Manor Restau-
rant is now open for business. It is located in the Dowling
House east of the fire station on Duval Street. The menu of-.
fers a wide range of scrumptious delights for both lunch and
evening dining. The renovation of the Dowling House has
been a long and demanding process for Tracy Forrest, her
parents Mr. and Mrs. Fred Andrews, and the many others who
volunteered and helped bring this about. It has really been a
labor of love for Tracy. Tracy and her family lived in the
house many .years ago. Not only will Grace Manor provide a
gathering and eating place' for area folks, its restoration will
preserve one of the City's old and notable residences. Most of
our historical homes have gone the way oftlheAirecking ball
over the years. A big WELCQME and THANK YOU goes out

S 9 to Tracy and others for their efforts.
VIAYORIS Would you as a resident of Live
CO R N ER Oak be pleased if a new sewer plant
RJ NELR.JJ could be built -and not cost you a
dime? Well, it's looking .more and
more like that will happen. Maybe
you remember back about two years
ago, I started informing you about the
new sewer plant and that we had de-
veloped a strategy to fund it without
NOBLES costing the city any out of pocket
money. With a few hitches and snags
here and there, I think,we are going to make it happen. Last
year, rather than going the way of the usual bidding process,
the Council decided to hire a construction manager, the
Haskell -Company, to take care of the building of the plant.
This was something new to us. I think it turned out to be a
very wise and fruitful move. In November of 2005, the pre-
liminary cost of the plant by Haskell was estimated at
$8,983,328. Bids were opened this week and a firm bid of
$7,838,107 was presented, over $1 million less than the esti-
mated cost. This cost includes over $500,000 for allowances
and contingencies. If these dollars are not needed and used,
the cost of the plant will be reduced that much more. The city
is pretty much assured, 99 per cent assured, of a $5,000,000
grant from DEP. I certainly hope this comes about. I don't
want to have to eat $5 million worth of crow. We already
have over $1 million in the city treasure chest along with a
$750,000 CDBG grant we just received. We are counting on
our legislative delegation, Rep. Dwight Stansel and Sen. Nan-
cy Argenziano to come through on our Community Budget
Issue Request of $2,500,000. These two representatives have
certainly been in there fighting for you in past years. We con-,
tinue to work very hard to make all of this happen.
Can we keep the change? The city is asking residents to al-
low the city to keep the change (coins) when you pay your
utility bill. The monies will go to support the Live Oak Police
Department's Relay For Life Team in support of the Ameri-
can Cancer Society. Recently, four members of our city fam-
ily have had issues with cancer. Just tell the ladies at the win-
dow or desk to keep the change. Your support will be very
much appreciated. Donations are also accepted.
Spring is bursting out all over. Please be conscious about
.not doing your spring planting on city right of way. These
plantings, especially trees and shrubs, can cause line of sight
problems for street traffic and the installation and mainte-
nance of city services. It's mowing time again and you are
asked not to blow your clippings into the road. Again, they
end up in storm drains clogging them and restricting.
drainage.
Don't forget to set your clocks forward this Saturday night.
Daylight SavingsTime begins Sunday morning, April 2. I re-
mind you again about the opening of the Suwannee County
Fair and Livestock Show which begins March 31 and contin-
ues through April 8.

guidance of peer mediation
tutors -- and come up with
their own solutions. Teachers
are not involved in the
process, but serve as a backup
if the situation gets out of
hand.
Mediation tutor Hailey Al-
ley, who helped start the pro-
gram three years ago when
she was just in fifth grade,
said students who are being
bullied or experiencing con-
flicts can fill out a request
form and slip it into one of the
boxes set up around campus.
Tutors, who are fellow stu-
dents, check boxes several
times a week and schedule
mediation sessions for dis-
putants to resolve the situa-.
tion. Everything is confiden-
tial, Alley said.
During the sessions stu-
dents in conflict sit at a table
with two mediators. The me-
diators lay down a few guide-
lines and ask the students how
they can resolve the issue.
During a visit at SMS re-
cently, four tutors sat down at
a Iableand.',.vndi cecd ajnrock:
mediation session to demon-,
strate the program Peer medi-
ators Alley and Travis Laxton
sat down to tutor peer media-
tors Laura Kaitlyn Boatright
and Logan Bonds, who were
role-playing two disputants
experiencing conflict. In' the
mock session the complaint
surrounding the conflict be-
tween the two girls involved a.
boyfriend issue.
At the beginning of the ses-
sion Lxiton welcomed the
disputants and laid down a
few guidelines. He told them.


Rolling Stone Magazine named Merle
Haggard, "...the greatest country artist of
our time." Enjoy the magnitude of this living
legend as Haggard performs at Wild Adven-
tures Saturday, April 1, beginning at 6:30
p.m. The concert is included with park ad-
mission for lawn chair seating. Covered re-
served seating directly in front of the stage is
also available for an additional $15 or $20.
Merle Haggard is one of the original out-
laws of country and has amassed an amaz-
ing library of hits, dating back to the 1960s.
He made a career, rising above dubious
childhood roots. The death of his father
when he was nine led to a hard life both on
the streets and in jail. A stint in solitary con-
finement at the infamous San Quentin Peni-
tentiary let to a "light bulb morhent," when
Haggard realized he was headed in the
wrong direction arid needed to change his
outlook on life.
Haggard's tough roots and hardships en-


there would be no cursing or
name calling and asked if they
would cooperate.
Alley told the girls a form
had been submitted to the
group about the issue and
asked them to explain the
conflict.
During the mock session
one girl accused the other of
flirting with her boyfriend
during second period. Laxton
asked the accused to respond.
The other said she was only
asking him for the time and to
borrow a pencil.
After the girls went back
and forth a few times, Laxton
asked, "what can we do to
solve this situation?" One re-
sponded what the other one
could do. "No, what can you
do to help resolve the situa-
tion?" Laxton asked, putting
the ball back into her court.
Both girls took turns in stating
how they would resolve the
issue and apologized. They
both learned what the other
was thinking and feeling and
how to talk out the situation.
There are about 24 media-
tors at SMS who work in
pairs. Peer mediators are on. a
rotation schedule so they
won't have it6 'utdr everyday.d'
Tutors conduct mediation ses-
sions during their elective
classes so they don't miss any
academic class time. Students
who sign up to become tutors
go through a training session
at the beginning of the year.
Alley said during media-
tion, tutors try to focus on one
problem at a time during each
session.

riched his songs, both in lyric and delivery.
In 1963, one of his singles, "Sing a Sad
Song," broke the Top 20 and he's made a .
home on the country charts ever since. More
than 40 of his singles have hit No. 1. Hag-

Counselor Karen Williams
serve as the program's spon-
sors.
"Back three years ago when
Mrs. Williams and I were
counselors, constantly we had
groups of children who I call
the 'yaa, yaa' group. There
were huge numbers of students
who were just doing this all of
the time. Students were mak-
ing a big issue over minor
things," Long said. "So we
started talking about the need
for conflict resolution skills."
Long and six students were
inspired to implement the pro-
gram after attending a teen
summit organized by North
East Florida Educational Con-
sortium (NEFEC). At the
event Baker County Schools
conducted a pullout session
demonstrating its Peer Media-
tion Program.
"I came back saying, 'that's
what we're going to do,'" Long
said.
"Since the program began
we've had the number of disci-
pline referrals go down. And a
-lot more kids are trying to: fix
problems ithemsel es, instead
of having to get someone else
involved," Alley said.
"Wd're'emp'owermng -studentso
to help one another, and those
who experience the program
as a disputant realize there are
some negotiating skills they
can use at the next event."
"Sometimes students will
come up to us and say, 'thanks
for doing this; now we're best
friends,'" Bonds said.
Laxton said the first year he
joined the program he joined
because his friends were in it.

"But as I got further along in
the program, I saw people like
us could really make a differ-
ence with our peers," Laxton
said. "It's real interesting to see
how people react and learn to
fix their own problems. It's
pretty cool."
Laxton said being a peer
mediator has even helped him
in his own relationships.
"I guess I've mellowed out a
little bit, seeing that some stuff
isn't such a big deal," he said.
"The program had kind of
taught me to stand up for my-
self and what I believe in," Al-
ley said. "Going to the teen
summit taught me a lot of
qualities of leadership, and it
helped me grow as a person."
Long said SMS is working
on developing a peer media-
tor/peer tutor class for next
year where students will go
through some intense' training
with a classroom teacher and
part of the time they will be
out tutoring as well as mediat-
ing.
"I'm real excited it's kind of
grown from this," she said.
Alle\ and others, who will
be in ninth grade at Suwahnee',
High School next year, want to
ielp stari'the Peer Mediation
Program at. Suwannee High
School.
"For the last couple' of years
we've been trying to get eighth
grade tutors who are going to
the high school to start it. We
really, really want to get it
started this next year," Alley
said.

Dale Carnegie & Assoc. Inc.,

It was an interesting conver-
sation to hear. A young lady
of eighteen was talking with a
learned man. He had asked
her about her career, what line
of training she wanted to pur-
sue. She said, "Well you
know, sir, I would like to be-
come a psychologist, but it re-
quires so much time in school
that I, am afraid I would be too
old." The wise nian sat in si-
lence for a few moments and
then asked "Young lady, how
long would it take you to be-
come a psychologist?" She
said, "Probably seven years."
"How old would you be
then?" was the next question.
" I would probably be about
25." Then the man asked.
"How old will you be in seven
years if you don't become a
psychologist?" Of course, her
answer was, "Well, I guess I
would be about 25."
A provocative thought.
How many people have cheat-
ed themselves? How many
have relinquished their de-
sires and forfeited their
dreams because the voices of
procrastination and failure
whispered negative thoughts
into their ears? This is where
many fall into the trap of
growing old when they are in
reality, still young. They
grow prematurely old because
of their early years, they start
planning to grow old. If you
were to drop your left arm to
your side, let it hang limp and
not move a muscle for six
weeks it would, of course,
wither and become useless.
But, in contrast, if you chin
yourself 20 times, before
breakfast each morning, or lift
the bar bells, your muscles
will become strong and re-
sponsive. Our mind is like
our muscles. If we allow it to


get lazy and inactive, then it
will lose its keenness, but if
we exercise it regularly, it too
will become strong and re-
sponsive. It was Frank
Bettger who said, "The man
who keeps learning stays
young. The greatest thing in
life. is to keep the mind
young." Henry Ford put it
this way, "The man who stops
learning is old, whether he is
twenty or eighty."
We have but to look around
us, no matter where we may
live, and we can spot evidence
of this great truth. We can see
people young in years, but old
in mind and spirit, simply be-
cause they allowed them-
selves to fall into a mental rut.
They stopped exercising their
minds and they stopped learn-
ing. Look just a little further.
Pick out that vibrant happy
older man or lady who has
lived more years, but is still
young in spirit and compara-
tively young in body. Study
that person. You will proba-
bly find him, or her, to be one
who is always looking for
new experiences. One who is
interested in things, and in
people, and in life. You will
probably find him to be a per-
son who is constantly wanting
to learn. He has exercised his
mind. This is whyyouth has
blessed him all these years
and will probably continue.
What we do with our lives
today, what we do to discover
and( develop our hidden talents
and abilities now, when we
don't have to... this will deter-
mine what and where we will
be when the day comes when
we can no longer help it. This
is apart of the self-preparation
that is so vital to those who
want to make the most of life.

IMPROVED TREES OF TO-
DAY: Johnny Mack "J.M."
Brown one of the owners of
Buckeye Nursery, Inc. says
trees of today are much im-
proved from 40 years ago.
Photo Sutmitted
Tree planting season is just
wrapping up this year, but
many Flondians do not know
that the trees being planted now
will help keep their state clean
and healthy for years to come.
Florida's forests are renewable
resources that constantly im-
prove the environment and the
quality of life for everyone in
the state.
Consistent reforestation is
the key to a healthy forest. The
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Sertices re-
ports that over 6 billion trees
have been planted in Flonda
since 1927. Each year. 82 mrrl-
lion trees are planted in Florida,
making it one..of the top tour
tree-planting stae's in the UL.S.'
Florida is active'in refofesta-
tion, with four trees planted for
every tree harvested in the state.
Forestry, which brings over
$16.6 billion to Florida's econ-
omy. is the state's largest
agribusiness sector. That puts
forestry even above citrus, yet
most people do not know how
vital this commodity is to Flonri-
da's economy and its environ-
ment.
These vigorously grown
trees are a result of successful
tree planting, which requires
extensive planning and atten-
tion to detail According to
Florida's Best Management
Practices, a set of silhicultural
guidelines followed by 99 per-
cent of forestry professionals in
the state, site preparation and
planting procedures should be
planned even before the pre\I-
ous timber is harvetred. The


Florida Division of Forestry
provides guidelines for mini-
mum quality of pine seedlings
and for ideal planting proce-
dures.
Along with responsible for-
est management, science also
plays a major role in successthl
reforestation. Buckeye Nursery.
Inc., located in Perry, has been
growing quality pine seedlings
since 1956. One of the oldest
pine seedling operations in the
South, the nursery has grown
over 700 million seedlings in its
40-year history-enougb to re-
forest more than 900,000 acres.
Buckeye Nursery produces
scientifically advanced
seedlings through a process
called Tree Improvement. This
process continuously improves
tree quality by selecting mature
trees with desirable qualities
and producing seed from those
selected trees through cross-
pollination. This results in
young trees with the desired
qualities of the mature trees
from which they were grown.
The improved trees are faster
growing, self-pruning and dis-
ease- and rust-resistant with
straighter stems. Each genera-
tion is improved to be superior
to the previous generations of
trees.
'.0 lijis process Begaii nearly 40"
years ago, when seed selections
were made from a group of de-
sirable, naturally growing trees.
Since then, the process has
been repeated many times so
that the seedlings sold today
can typically produce 20-30
percent more volume growth
than the original generation.
"The trees w e grow today are
much improved from when we
began some 40 years ago." says
one of Buckeye Nursery's own-
ers Johnny Mack Bro'in
"'Some can produce even 40
percent more volume growth
than the original generation."
Ever- acre of pine seedlings
in the nu-sery can be used to
plant 909 acres in the forest at a
density, of about 726 trees per
acre. In 210i5. seedlings fromin
Buckeye Nursery alone were
planted to create over 20,000
acres of new forests.

Georgia Health System. She was elected
as the first woman president of the
Gainesville Rotary Club in 2004 and was

Year Award in 1994. Simpson is a mem-
ber of the Economic Development Coun-
cil for the Greater Hall Chamber of Com-
merce, vice chair of the Gainesville Mul-
ticultural Committee, a board member of
the North Georgia Community Founda-
tion, member of the Arts Council and'

"This community has lended its love,
talents, and generosity to allow us to cre-
ate a fabric that will continue to make

to work, play, and to serve," stated Le-
Trell Simpson.

aust tivities for youth in the county
Is of since teens cite boredom from
"nothing to do" as a reason to
ions drink.
em- "Even when I was a kid we
ing, said there was nothing to do,
sion but there's probably more to do
Cir- now than there was then," Scott
am- said. "Of course, finding things
)rug to do is about making a choice
Ap- to do them or not."
Scott suggested getting
aren churches, the athletic league
ddle and other agencies together
, re- to discuss what's available
em- for youth and get the word
aess out to the public. He said
and rather than spending money,
forming boys and girls club,
now the community should use its
g or existing resources more ef-

inst Panel member, Nolan
oth- McLeod, Live Oak Police De-
Dri- apartment. chief, was asked
and about whether imposing a cur-
)ugh few would help curb the un-,
met. derage drinking issue, since a
own large percentage of alcohol-re-
and lated traffic fatalities occur af-
pro- ter 12 a.m.
t re- "I don't think it would,"
n of McLeod said. "Juvenile pro-
tection ordinances or curfews
di- basically are calling on offi-
egan cials to take on the role of the
hool parent. An ordinance will not
it by change behavior."
high He said parents should step
nee up to plate and hold their chil-
l at dren accountable.
asked "Unfortunately, this is the
a ac- exception rather than the rule,"
McLeod said about parents
who taking responsibility for their
ents children's drinking habits. "In

was "I really think a right of pas-
nion sage is just a way of not want-
ing to deal with it as a parent,"
at of Lamb said. "Parents have got
rink to take the responsibility. They
ig to have got'to be the ones who
r do will drive ihe change."


Lamb said she and other
school personnel take the high
school underage drinking sta-
tistics personal and try to find
the best solutions to curb the is-
sue. However, she noted that
school officials only have chil-
dren so many hours of the day
and months of the year.
"I think to change the social
attitude that drinking is a right
of passage, it's got to come from
the kids," she said. '"I think we
have to inform them so they can
make informed decisions, but
parents also must be account-
able."
Panel member William
Slaughter II, Suwannee County
court judge, was asked whether
passing a local keg restoration
ordinance would reduce under-
age drinking since many teen
drinkers report obtaining alco-
hol at keg parties.
Slaughter said if the city and
county passed a keg legislation
ordinance it would require all
kegs to be labeled with the
owner's name, the buyer's name
and the name of the seller of the
keg's contents. This would pro-'
vide a record of who bought the
beer so if law enforcement
were to come upon a drinking
party with underage people
they can trace it back to the per-
son who bought it.
"So, to this extent the ordi-'
nance would be helpful," he
said.
Slaughter said providing al-
cohol to an underage person is a
second-degree misdemeanor,
which carries a maximum
penalty of 60 days in jail.
Slaughter cited a recent case
where a woman gave her 17-
year-old daughter two bottles of
wine, which led to the teen's
death after she and her
boyfriend got in the car a had a
head on collision. Both teens
*were killed.
Panel member Wayne Gods-
mark, pastor of Christ Central
Ministries, was asked to pro-
vide suggestions about how to
mobilize the faith community
to provide more activities for
youth and for churches to col-
laborate in their efforts.
Godsnimrk said church lead-
ers need to be more informed
about the issue and partner with
other agencies. Leaders also
need to serve as mentors for
youth and spread awareness to
parents, he said.
"Though we have separation
of church and state roadblocks,
churches need to push to unite
with government agencies to
address the problem," he said.

Elk's Lodge/Auxiliary helps fund hospice


Funds still needed


Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter
Recently, Live Oak
Elk's Lodge donated
$10,000 to Haven Hos-
pice of the Suwannee
Valley being construct-
ed on US 90 west in
Lake City. The Anna
Miller Circle, the Elks
Lodge's Auxiliary, also
donated $250 to the new
hospice. The $10,000 is
designated to furnish
two rooms at Haven
Hospice, which will be
garnished with plaques
of appreciation to the
lodge. The $250 dona-
tion does not have a
special designation.
Elk's Lodge Exalted
Ruler Donald Watson
said most of the money
has been raised through
the lodge's bingo
games. He also recog-
nized Haven Hospice
steering committee
chairperson Marjorie
Carmichael for doing an
excellent job with rais-
ing funds for Suwannee
County. 'He said


Carmichael's husband,
Garner "Doc" who was
a long-time member of
the lodge, used hospice
out of Gainsville.
"The new hospice will
be a great 'boom' for
our county and the sur-
rounding counties who
have had to rely on ser-
vices in Gainsville," he
said.
The new Hospice will
provide 16 private pa-
tient rooms with accom-
modations for 24-hour
visitations from family
members. It's scheduled
to be complete in No-
vember and officials
hope to begin taking pa-
tients in December.
The center will serve
Suwannee, Columbia,
Baker, Hamilton,
Lafayette and Union
counties.
Many more funds
need to be raised to
help funding the multi-
million dollar facility.
Anyone wishing to do-
nate to the cause may
contact Marjorie
Carmichael at 362-1888.

Teams forming


for Relay For Life

A fun-filled, overnight event to raise

money for the fight against cancer


The American Cancer
Soc,ieb) is in the process
.of recruiting teanm to par-.
ticipate in Relay For Life
of Suwannee County-a
unique community event
that allows individuals
from all walks of life to'
join in the fight against
cancer. Last year, more
than 3 million Americans
participated in Relay For
Life and more than
500,000 cancer survivors
walked the opening laps.
Attention Suwannee
County! Rally those
around you to form a team
and join in the fight
against cancer! Grab your
sneakers and join us April
28-29, at the Suwannee.
High School track. Re-
cruit individuals from
your family, clubs,
schools, businesses,
churches, service groups,
public employee groups,
health care professionals
and others to form teams.
All of the money raised
goes to our mission of
saving lives through re-
search, advocacy, patient
services and education.
"We are extremely ex-
cited about Relay For
Life. This is the 10th year
for Relay in Suwannee
County and we really
want to involve as much
of the community as pos-
sible and show our friends
and neighbors that we
support them in their fight
against cancer," said Re-
lay for Life of Suwannee
County chairperson Marti
Carver. In each communi-
ty, cancer survivors are
invited to begin the Relay
for Life by walking the
Survivors' Victory Lap
around the track. Then
members of the teams
take to the track and one
person from each team re-
mains on the track
throughout the entire 18-
24 hours. After dark, a
Luminaria Ceremony is
held in memory of those
who have lost their battle
with cancer and in honor*
of survivors.
Relay For Life began as


one man's battle against
cancer and a, journey to
raise funds to support the
American Cancer Society.
In May 1985, Dr., Gordy
Klatt walked, jogged and
ran for 24 hours around a
track in Tacoma, Wash.
His run alone raised
$27,000.
Registration for this
event continues through

Suwannee boys' weightlifting has had
a busy week. Suwannee narrowly placed
second at the state sectional meet in Ft.
White. The Dogs took second to Inter-
lachen, losing by two points 55-57. The
Bulldogs had the most first place winners
with five Suwannee lifters taking gold.
"The boys were passionate about win-
ning, and although they were disappoint-
ed they walked away with their heads
high knowing they did their best," said
weightlifting coach Jimmy Clay. "It was
a great and exciting meet."
According to Clay, Joe Kelly, Larrell
Cherry, Jarrett Yulee, Dustin Doe, and
Michael Wright will be moving on to the
next sectional and possibly Leon Daniels
and Chris Bevel.
The. top three in each class go and the
fourth and fifth place winners have a
chance if their totals are more than the
other section's fourth and fifth place win-
ners.
The Bulldogs defeated Hamilton Coun-
ty March 15. The meet was supposed to


be a three-way between Hamilton, Trinity
Catholic and Suwannee. Trinity didn't
show so Suwannee and Hamilton com-
peted in a dual meet. Suwannee won 62-
26.
Sectional results
119-Brandon Strattoni placed fifth.
"Brandon is a freshman with great po-
tential in the coming years," Clay said.
"His efforts have helped score points for
the team throughout the year."
129-Christopher Skeen placed sixth
"Christopher also is a freshman with
great potential in the coming years," Clay
said. "His efforts helped score points for
the team throughout the year."
139-Joe Kelly placed first.
"Joe is still undefeated this year and is
doing a great job," Clay said. "Joe is fun
to watch."
139-Chris Bevel placed fourth.
"Chris had a personal best in the clean
and jerk and we are hoping he will quali-
fy for the next sectional," Clay said.
"Chris has been very dedicated all year."


154-Jarrett Yulee took first. "Jarrett
is also undefeated and is one fierce com-
petitor," Clay said.
169-Larrell Cherry placed first. Cherry
is another undefeated lifter.
"Larrell brings a lot of enthusiasm and
leadership to the team," Clay said.
183-Brandon Allen placed fourth.
"Brandon made a great showing while
nursing a sore back," said Clay.
S 183-Justin Starling placed sixth. Ac-
cording to Clay, Justin had to fight to
make weight which left him a bit weak.
"Justin loves to compete and is at
honie in the weight room," Clay said.
199-Chad Hardin placed sixth. Clay
said Chad is very strong with incredible
potential.
219-Tom Cheek placed fifth. "Tom
Cheek has shown great dedication and
next year he will be very hard to beat,"
Clay said. "Tom has great form in the
clean and jerk.

Damon Wooley
By Damon Wooley

If you are reading this ar-
ticle, I hope that you are
able to take some valuable
information about boating
safety away from it and
share it with everyone you
know. Recently a local an-
gler was involved in a freak-
ish boating accident on the
Suwannee River that almost
claimed his life. However,
because he had taken the
necessary precautions to
help ensure his safety, this
particular angler is alive to-
day and is a living testimony
to the importance of wearing
a quality life vest with an
ignition kill switch attached
to it while operating a ves-
sel.
Joey Wood was competing
in the monthly North Florida
Bassmasters club tourna-
ment at the mouth of the
Suwannee River on Saturday
March 18 when this unfortu-
nate accident occurred.
Wood was traveling up the


Suwannee River'in his 21
foot Bullet bass boat when
the hydraulic steering cable
to his motor malfunctioned
just aboe Cla3 landing.
Wood stated that all he
could remember was run-
ning up the river one minute
and then waking up in the
water the next. It is be-
lieved that the steering fail-
ure caused Wood's boat to
hook suddenly which ejected
him from his vessel. As is
required by tournament
rules, Wood was wearing his
Mustang PFD, which is a
hydrostatic life vest that is
popular among tournament
anglers. Wood also had fas-
tened his engine kill switch
to his PFD and I believe that
it is because of these two
precautions and the simple
grace of God that he is alive.
today.
Wood received a severe
laceration to his head, multi-
ple bruises all over his body'
and re-injured an old back
injury. 'Despite all of this,
everyone including his doc-
tor believes that he is fortu-
nate to be alive. No doubt,
he is going to be extremely
sore for quite some time and
have to be on bed rest for at
least two weeks, but he
should be okay.
I spoke with Wood recent-.
ly while he was recovering
at home and he told me that
without a doubt, his Mus-

Suwannee's starting pitcher

"We take great pride in
the level of instruction that
these players receive in this
program from the time they
arrive in the Junior Varsity
program to the time they
leave the Varsity," Coach
Ronnie Gray said. "I think
this is evident by the num-
ber of players we have sent
into college baseball the
last nine years."
Gray stated, "Ability

there has to be some solid
guidance. These guys are
very talented and have ex-
hibited a great work ethic
while here. They all have
the tools needed to play this
game at a high level and
you are seeing it come to
fruition this season."
"The age old coaching
cliche that great players
make great coaches is and
always will be true in ath-
letics because there is no
such thing as a super coach,
Gray said. "I hope we can

tang PFD saved his life. He
said that he didn't really
know how long he was un-
conscious in the water, but
when he woke up and real-
ized that he wasn't dream-
ing, that he swam to the
nearest river bank..
After reaching the bank
and gathering his senses for
what he said had to be at
least 30-45 minutes Joey
said he noticed his boat
lodged against a logjam
nearby. He then made his
way out onto the log jam
and back into his boat. Al-
though his engine was opeir-
ational, there was no steer-
ing and therefore he used
his trolling motor to navi-
gate over to two men he saw
fishing in a boat nearby.
The two men in the boat
hadn't witnessed the acci-
dent and didn't have any
idea that he was in distress
until he approached them.
Immediately upon contact
with Wood they phoned 911
and cared for him as best
they could..
Shortly thereafter, Eric
Wood, the vice-president of
the North Florida Bassmas-
ters, happened by the scene
of the accident in his boat as
he was making his way up-
river and he also stopped to
offer his help. Eric trans-
ported Joey to nearby Clay
Landing where they were
met by rescue personnel.
The two bystanders that
phoned 911 for Wood and
helped care for him were
also gracious enough to dri-
ve all the way down to the
mouth of the Suwannee and
pick up Joey's truck and
trailer. They then drove all
the way back to Clay land-
ing, recovered his boat from
the water and transported
his rig back to their home in
Chiefland. I don't know the
folks who helped him out
but the\ should be com-
mended for their efforts'
Consequenti), Eric \\ood
went on to win the club
tournament with over nine
pounds. Michael Johnson
was second'with new club
member Bobby Cason in
third. All three anglers
brought five bass limits to.
the scales. Several mem-
bers of the North Florida
Bassmasters were not able
to fish the club tournament
as they were competing in
the Wal-Mart BFL tourna-
ment on the Harris Chain of
Lakes in Leesburg along
with several other local an-
glers who are not members
of the NFBM.
In the boater division, Da-
mon Wooley was the highest
local finisher in the Wal-
Mart tournament, finishing
in 17th place with a limit
weighing 11.10. Also com-
peting on the boater side
was Matt Frier 42nd place


(4 bass-7.11), Walter Star-
ling 53rd (4-6.10), Ricky
Mott 57th (5-5.07) and
Deryl Williams 64th (2-
3.09). Mitchell Odom was
the top finishing local com-
petitor in the co-angler divi-
sion. Odom weighed two
bass for 7.12 to place sev-
enth overall. Following
Odom were local anglers
Jesse Williams- ninth place
(3-7.11), Brooks Haisten-
23rd (2-5.00), Brandon
Williams 38th (2-3.10),
Rusty Berry-53rd (1-1.10)
and Justin Starling-62nd (1-
1.01).
The next Seminole Divi-
sion BFL will be on Satur-
day, April 8 in White City
on the Apalachicola River
system and Lake Wimico.
If you haven't heard by
now, a potential world
record bass was caught this
past week on Lake Dixon in
California. Last year I en-
joyed reading a book enti-
tled "Sowbelly", which de-
scribed the obsessive quest
of several anglers around'
the world to capture the next
world-record bass and Mac
Weakley, the angler who
landed the new potential
world-record bass was actu-
ally profiled in the book.
Weakley and a handful of-
his friends have been after
the record for several years
and if this bass does get ap-
proved as the new world
record, I would have to say
that, based on what I've read
about him that he deserves it
just as much as anybody.
There's always a fish sto-
ry to go along with catching
a big fish and this one is no
different. The short verse of
the long version to the story
is this: Weakley was sight
fishing for the big female
with two of his friends and
when the big fish nosed
down on his jig, he set the
hook and ended up foul
hooking her just below the
dorsal fin. He k a. able to
wrestle the giant into a land-
ing net and the fish was then
weighed on a digital scale,
photographed and videoed
before being quickly re-
leased alive back into Lake
Dixon.
Weakley and his friends
stated that they didn't want
to stress the big bass any *
more than necessary by lay-
ing her on the dock for
length and girth measure-
ments or by waiting for a
certified scale to be brought'
to the lake. These were the
main reasons that prompted
the quick release of the gi-
ant bass.
The IGFA is considering
the big bass for the new
world record but officials
say it will take at least a
month before a decision will
be made. Do I think it's the
real deal? Absolutely, with-
out a doubt! And just how
big was she? Well, she


weighed more than my son,
who is almost two years
old! Try twenty-five pounds
and one ounce! That's al-
most three pounds bigger
than the previous record of
22.04 set by George W. Per-
ry in 1932! I'm sure
there will be more details
about this awesome bass all
over the internet over the
next few weeks and I'm
anxious to hear every one of
them!
Keep in mind that over
the next few weeks the
amount of beating traffic
will begin to increase on
area waters. Please remem-
ber to boat smart and follow
all of the necessary safety
precautions. I'm sure we
are all guilty of the "it
won't happen to me" think-
ing, when it comes to boat-
ing accidents, but remember
that accidents sometimes
happen even if you do take
all of the precautions netes-
sary to prevent them. If you
don't believe me, ask Joey
Wood!

Crist, Attorneys General

sign tobacco agreement

with CVS


Nation's largest retail
pharmacy agrees to
curb tobacco sales
to minors
Attorney General Charlie
Crist recently announced an
agreement with CVS Phar-
tmacy, Inc.., under which the.
-.rations largest drugoster.e
chain will implement, new,
procedures to reduce tobacco
sales to minors. The agree-
ment will affect the compa-
ny's 656 Florida stores and
more than 5,400 outlets in 37
other states and Washington,
D.C. Crist and 43 other Attor-
neys General signed the
agreement.
The CVS settlement is the
eighth- such agreement pro-
duced by an ongoing multi-
state enforcement effort in
which Florida has actively
participated. Previous agree-
ments cover all 7-Eleven,
Wal-Mart, Walgreens and
Rite Aid stores and all gas
stations and convenience.
stores operating under the
Conoco, Phillips 66 or 76,
Exxon, Mobil, BP, Amoco
and ARCO brand names in
the participating states. The
agreements provide measures
to reduce sales of tobacco
products to minors by the na-
tion's top retail chain Wal-
Mart), the top two drug store
chains (CVS and Walgreens),"
largest oil company (Exxon-
Mobil) and biggest retailer of
tobacco products (7-Eleven).
Combined, the agreements
cover more than 60,000 retail
outlets across the nation.
"Every time a child is pre-,
vented from purchasing to-
bacco products, their chance
for a healthy life is im-
proved," said Crist. "I am
pleased that yet another re-
tailer has agreed to intensify
efforts designed to curtail
teen tobacco use."
Launched in 2000, the mul-
ti-state enforcement effort by
the Attorneys General focus-
es on retailers with poor
records of selling tobacco
products to minors. Under-
cover inspections showed mi-
nors were able to buy tobacco
products at CVS stores in
Florida and other jurisdic-
tions.
The enforcement pro-
gram's goal is to secure the
companies' agreement to take
specific corrective actions.
The agreements incorporate
"best practices" to reduce
sales to minors, developed by


the Attorneys General in con-
sultation with researchers
and state and federal tobacco
control officials.
The agreement' announced
today requires that CVS do
the following at all company-
owned stores:
.- Check the ID of any per-
*..Rpurchasing jobaqci, prod-
ucts wherithe, perso R-,ppears
to be under the age of 27, and
,accept only valid govern-
ment-issued photo ID as
proof of age.
Prohibit self-service dis-
plays of tobacco products,
the use of vending machines
to sell tobacco products, dis-
tribution of free samples, sale
of cigarette look-alike prod-
ucts, and the sale of smoking
paraphernalia to minors.
Hire an independent enti-
ty to conduct random compli-
ance checks of 1,361 CVS
stores annually in the partici-
pating states.
Limit in-store advertising
of tobacco products to brand
names, logos and pricing and
require signs to be confined
to the areas where the prod-
ucts are sold. '
Train employees on state
and local laws and company
policies regarding tobacco
sales to minors, including an
explanation of the health-re-
lated reasons for laws that re-
strict youth access to tobac-
co.
SThe Attorneys General
have long recognized that
youth access to tobacco prod-
ucts ranks among the most
serious public health prob-
lems. Studies show that more
than ,80 percent of adult
smokers began smoking be-
fore the age of 18. Research
indicates that every day in
the United States, more than
2,000 people under the age of
18 start smoking and that
one-third of those persons ul-
timately will die from a to-
bacco-related disease. Young
people are particularly sus-
ceptible to the hazards of to-
bacco, often showing signs of
addiction after smoking only
a few cigarettes.
Floridians who suspect vi-
olations of state tobacco laws
or the multi-state agreement
can file complaints by calling.

My unqualified views regarding the economy


DerekMaul,
derekmaul@gmail. com,
Sunbelt Newspapers
Several readers have e-mailed
me recently regarding the murky
and inexact world of economics.
In 'the spirit of journalistic in-
tegrity, now would be a good
time to mention that the '"good
with money" family gene clearly
skipped my generation.
Math was one of my downfalls
in school. I say "one of" because
there was evidently some fairly.
lively debate in the staff lounge
back in ninth grade between
Messrs. Nichols, Thomas and
Pryor concerning who had the
most frustrating job..'
I got off to a poorstart in math
because the British monetary sys-
tem was so whacky. There were
12 pence in a shilling and 20
shillings in a pound. That makes
240 pence. Most large ticket
items were quoted in guineas,
each of which h equaled 21
shillings. .
.The coins were' cumbersome.
Farthing, ha'penny, penny, three-
penny-bit, sixpence, shilling,
florin, and half-crown. Their .re-
spective values in pence equaled


1/4, 1/2, 1, 3, 6, 12, 24, and 30.
A great though cumbersome
cultural treasure was lost when
British currency' converted
(1971) and we had 100 pennies
just.like everyone else. But lord
knows what .the calculator manu-
facturers would have done with
sums such as 252 pence in a
guinea or 960 farthings ,in a
pound.
Most of the questions I fielded
addressed the emerging world
economy. People say they don't
want to lose jobs to India. They
don't want parts of America be-
ing owned by Middle-eastern
shipping companies or French
venture-capitalists. And they,
don't want some revolution in a
third-world country to affect the
price of a commodity they al\ a\ s
believed had. been manufactured
by 'family artisans in middle-
America..
Others complain about .immi-
gration, especiallI undocumented
workers.crossing our borders 'to
work jobs the American labor-
force has all but abandoned.
Of course the reason family ar-
tisans in middle-.America aren't
in business an, more is. \\e be-


lieve it's our right to pay low
prices for stuff we don't really
need and even less for necessi-
ties.
Would we rather pay higher
prices and keep more Americans
employed? Is the high standard of
living we enjoy a fundamental
right? So long as we keep feeding
the beast (the economy) do we re-
ally care about living wages else-
where?
So we want documented farm-
workers? Would we be happy
paying $4 a head for lettuce?
How about tomatoes at $2 each?
'What would we think if the mar-
ket demanded,, say, $25 or more
for a flat of strawberries?
We live, in a world that is
shrinking by the minute. A revo-
lution in communications and our
ability to ship products thousands
of miles in' a matter of hours has
essentially mandated a world
economy. The problems that have
emerged are largely- in my opin-
ion a result of our tendenc\,to
leverage conditions. to maximize
personal gain rather than to en-.
sure a climate that facilitates
prosperity for all.
Greed is a noxious malady.


There is a, sense in which our
economy operates like a gigantic
Ponzi scheme., The people who
invented the scam keep looting
boatloads of money from the
bank, and the only thing that,
keeps the beast afloat is fresh
cash stuffed in the front end by
people convinced that material
goods will answer all their
dreams of happiness.
The- solution, interestingly, -is
not revolution so much as re-val-
uation. The engine of greed is
supported by 'our attraction like
magpies to pretty things. If we
re-educate ourselves to value real
substance like family, relation-
ships, freedom,' healthy living,
and education then we would
not need to waste our resources
producing and selling widgets we
only believe we need because we
have been hoodi'inked.
"Not something you don't
need," the commercial cunningly
seduces, "'.just something you.
haven't considered before."
This coming Sunday I turn 50.
Fiftt is the traditional biblical
"year of jubilee.'" "Consecrate the
fiftieth Near and proclaim liberty
throughout the land to all its. in-


Derek.Ma l .I.. ,
habitatss. It shall be a jubilee for
you." (Leviticus 25:10)
I truly pray this birthday will
signal the beginning of a new
kind of liberty throughout the
land. that we will be less depen-
dent on things and more. commit-
ted to the fullness of a life \ ith
its values properly ordered.

In modern vernacular,
Thomas is referred to.
probably, more often than
any of the other disciples:
"doubting Thomas." He
seemed to be the type 'of
person ,who could always
see the negative aspect of
any situation. His 'Lpes-
simism led' to depression
fi the only logical out-
come. In John 11:16, "Let
us also go, tlat we max
die with- Him (Jesus)," he
looked on the darker side
of things; "His .path is
heading toward death so
.\ye might as.\ well go along
,and ,4 ie, ,wibh. ,Himi.. He
failed to realize that, the
problem had to be faced
in order to experience the
solution! No battles, no
victories'! A positive atti-
tude toward life goes a
long way in shaping your
fliture and fitting you for,
the Lord's service.
But at the same time.
while, there may be a hint
.of pessimism in John
11:16 it also contains a
note of Thomas' devotion
to our Lord. He was will-
ing to die if need be., His-
tory indicates that he was
probably the first mis-.
sionary to India. He was
martyred on the mission
field. Per Peloubet's Bible
Dictionary he was killed
by a lance. He may have
had somewhat of a pes-
simistic outlook but he
also had a devotion to
Christ a willingness if


' ." ..'. ..J., I,,_ '._i; IIIH IP ,,
" b l 'i d 1.% 8 e t i'
necessary to die for Him
which he did as born out
by history. It was 'proba-
bly this deep devotion
that helped him to over-
come his doubting.
Someone has said
Thomas must have been
from kissouri, the "show
me". state. He puts one in
remembrance of the, man
in Mark 9:24 who said,
"Lord, I believe; help.
thou my unbelief." But
when the facts were pre-
sented, Thomas was able
to come to 'a sound'con-
clusion "My Lord' and
my God," (John 20:28).

USDA Rural Development offers home loans with no down payment


Want to buy a home, but feel
you can't come up with the
down payment or afford the
monthly house payment? Each
year the United States Depart-
mnent, of Agriculture (USDA)
Rural Development invests mil-
lions of dollars in loans and
grants that provide rural Florida
residents with decent, safe and
sanitary single or multi-family
housing. USDA Rural Develop-
ment has two no-down-payment
programs to help individuals liv-
ing in rural communities and ar-
eas obtain the, dream of home


ownership. One program even
includes a subsidized interest
rate for eligible applicants. .
"Ensuring that Floridians liv-
ing in rural communities and ar-
eas have decent, safe and afford-
able housing has been a top pri-
ority of USDA Rural Develop-:
ment for many years," said
Chuck Clemons, USDA Rural
Development Florida State Di-
rector. "Providing rural housing
opportunities is just another way
the federal government, through
USDA Rural Development, is
enhancing the ability of rural


communities to develop and to
grow, ensuring the best possible
quality of life for. rural resi-
dents," Clemons said.
Direct Loan Program
The Direct Loan Program is
geared toward low to very low-
income individuals. There is no
down payment requirement and
the closing costs may be includ-
ed in the loan. The maximum
loan amount is $172,000, with
loan terms of 33 years and a cur-
rent full-note interest rate of 5.75
percent. Under this program an
applicant may be eligible for


payment assistance, which
would subsidize the interest por-
tion of the house payment, low-
ering the overall monthly pay-
ment amount. Applicant's eligi-
bility requirements include good
credit history, adequate and de-
pendable income and repayment
ability for the loan.
Eligible homes must meet the
following requirements:
The home must be located in a
community of 20,000 persons or
less, or in a rural area. All parts of
Columbia, Hamilton, Suwannee,,
Madison, Jefferson, Lafayette.


and Taylor counties are eligible.
The home cannot have-an in-
ground swimming pool.
The house must be structural-
ly sound. '
Newly constructed houses
must be built by a licensed
builder.
Guaranteed Loan Program
The Guaranteed Loan Pro-
gram is for moderate-income in-
dividuals. This program is ad-
ministered by a local lender, who
will take the application, process
it and determine the acceptabili-
ty of the home to be financed.'


The applicant's income cannot
exceed the county's income lim-
it, which varies by county and
family size. This program re-
quires no down payment, no pri-
vate mortgage insurance, and of-
fers a 30-year fixed rate mort-
gage at bank interest rates for the
purchase or construction of a
home. Loan limits are based on
an applicant's repayment ratios.

Preparing for paraprofessionals certification test at NFCC


The Educator Prepara-
tion Institute (EPI) of North
Florida Community College
(NFCC) is conducting test
preparations for instruc-
tional paraprofessionals
from area school districts
for the next several Satur-
days. Dr. Phillip
Mantzanas, coordinator of
the EPI, is leading the ses-
sions to help teacher aides
meet certification stan-
dards.


The No Child Left Be-
hind Act established certifi-
cation requirements for
paraprofessional personnel
who provide instructional
assistance to students in lo-
cal schools. One choice is
to pass the ETS ParaPro As-
sessment; the other is to
complete two years of col-
lege for associates of arts
degree. NFCC's current
training program prepares
paraprofessionals for the


ParaPro test.
Paraprofessionals from
Madison, Jefferson,
Lafayette, Suwannee and
Hamilton school districts
are participating. Taylor
paraprofessionals received
on-site training this last
summer.
The test prep program in-
cjudes classroom and on-
line learning. It focuses on
reading, writing and math
competencies for both prac-


ticing and prospective para-
professionals. It also pre-
pares them to apply these
competencies when assist-
ing in classroom instruc-
tion. "A unique aspect of
this program is the integra-
tion of study and test taking
strategies," said Mantzanas.
For information about the
Educator Preparation Insti-
tute contact Mantazan-
tasT@nfcc.edu or 850-973-
9491.

The value


of beauty


1.3


-f



-I


Thoutlh we travel the world over to
fi1nd the beautiful, We lnUSt carry it
\\ith us or we \\tnd it not.
Ralph \\Whldo Emerson


People often oppose beauty to utility,
as if these concepts are somehow at
odds with each other. But, isn't it
actually the case that beautiful things
can be useful, and moreover, that
beauty itself is eminently useful?
Truly, beauty has tremendous value,
even inestilmable value. Beauty adds
joy and poignancy to our sometimes
dreary lives, and pretending that we
can live without beauty is like
pretending that we can live without
love. Indeed, we would live hopelessly
dreary, impoverished lives without
love or beauty, and without these
most essential of things we would, as
it were, wither and dry out. Another
wa- in which beauty has value is in the
way that it inspires the "better angels
of our natLure." One of the best ways
to humanize and civilize people is by
exposing them to beauty, either
throtL,-gh the arts or the natural world.
Beauty is not just the province of the
arts. Science itself can be beautiful,
for instance, in the elegance of an
incisive explanation. And finally, we
shtoutld remember that wlien it comes

are more important than physical
beauty, and thev are moral and
spiritual beaut\. So, we should look
for beaut t everywhere, anid cultivate it
within ourselves. \We might be
surprised where it turns up, and h1ow
it will enrich our lies.

Witnesses step forward in crocodile case; reward offered


Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) investigators called for
the public's help Thursday in
tracking down those responsi-
ble for the recent shooting
deaths of two endangered
American crocodiles on Sug-
arloaf Key.
Witnesses who heard gun-
shots on several nights in late
February already have stepped
forward, helping investigators
pinpoint the location of the
killings-Sugarloaf Boulevard
and Wahoo Lane. But they be-
lieve someone actually may
have seen the shootings.
"We have received tremen-
dous help from residents on
this case. We are asking for
more," FWC Officer Gordon
Sharp said. "These were en-
dangered animals, protected
- animals. People in this area
who have lived alongside
these crocodiles for years are
angry."
The carcasses of the two
crocodiles, one 7-feet-long
and one 8.5-feet-long, were


dumped several miles apart on
State Road 4A. They appar-
ently had been shot in their
heads with different types of
firearms.
The crocodiles, which ap-
peared otherwise healthy and
well-nourished, have been
identified as two that had
lived in the area for about sev-
en years. Though residents
had complained about their
presence, there were no re-
ports of any aggression on
their part towards humans or
pets. In fact, there have been
no documented attacks by
American crocodiles on hu-
man beings in the United
States. Crocodiles are protect-
ed under both state and feder-

Living With Crocodiles
The American crocodile
lives along the coasts in parts
of Mexico, Central and South
America, the Caribbean and at
the northern end of its range in
South Florida. Historically,
crocodiles lived in coastal ar-
eas from Key West to the low-
er Indian River on the Atlantic
Coast and Charlotte County
on the Gulf Coast. They thrive
in brackish and saltwater habi-

tats and are found in ponds,

American crocodiles differ
from American Alligators in
several ways: Crocodiles are
grayish-green in color, while
alligators are darker in color.
The fourth tooth on either side
of the crocodile's lower jaw is
exposed when the mouth is
closed. Crocodiles have nar-
rower, more pointed snouts
than alligators.
The American crocodile is
an endangered species success
story. Since it was listed in
1975, its numbers have grown
in Florida from fewer than
300 to more than 1,000, not
including hatchlings. The
number of documented nests
has increased from 10-20 to
more than 80. As a result of
this continued recovery and
the increasing numbers of
people living and recreating
near water in south Florida,
the number of crocodile-relat-
ed complaints has risen.
Some people may be fright-

Redfish stocks in Florida are
healthy, but increasing fishing
pressure could put a damper on
continued abundance 'of this
important sport fish species.
That's the message Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) biologists will
take to an FWC public hearing
April 6 in Tallahassee.
FWC's Fish and Wildlife Re-
search Institute recently com-
pleted a stock assessment for
redfish (also called red drum,
channel bass and red bass). The
assessment includes data col-
lected 'through 2003 and indi-'
cates redfish stocks are meet-
ing the Commission's manage-
ment goal of a-.30-percent es--
capement rate on Florida's
Gulf and Atlantic coasts. The
escapement rate is the propor-


ened by .the sight of a croco-
dile. However, American
crocodiles are normally shy
and reclusive. Often the best
course of action is simply to
leave the crocodile alone. For
American crocodiles to con-
tinue to recover, people must
learn to coexist with them
whenever possible.
A few tips for living with
crocodiles:
Closely supervise children
when they are playing in or
around water.
1. Crocodiles are most ac-
tive between dusk and dawn.
Therefore, swim only during
daylight hours.
2. Do not allow pets to
swim, exercise or drink in wa-
ters that may contain croco-
diles. Dogs are more suscepti-
ble to being attacked than hu-
mans, because dogs resemble
the natural prey of crocodiles.
3. Use fencing and other
barriers to separate you and
your pets from crocodiles.
4. Leave crocodiles alone.
State and federal law prohibits'



redfi


tion of spawning-sized fish that
survive through the established
harvest limits.
Redfish stocks have been re-
covering in Florida since the
late 1980s when officials
-launched substantial manage-
ment measures. However, the
continuing increase in the num-
ber of Florida anglers fishing
for red fish has tempered recent
gains by the stock. FWC biolo-
gists suggest that if fishing
pressure, continues to rise, as
expected, redfish may fall short
of management goals by the
next stock assessment, sched-
uled for 2008.
Redfish stocks were over-
fished and in danger ofcollapse
in 1986. This resulted in three
temporary closures of the 'fish-
ery and subsequent implemen-
tation of a management plan
that included a ban on redfish
sales, a three-month closure to
all redfish harvest, and strict
bag and size limits. As redfish
stocks, improved, a year-round
sport season reopened in 1996,
but the prohibition of sale. and&
the one redfish daily bag limit
and 18- to 27-inch slot limit re-
main in place today.
The fishery has made signif-,
icant progress and is widely
considered to be a management
success, so much so that an-
glers in some parts of Florida
have called for more-liberal
redfish regulations, including
an increase in the daily bag
limit.
However, even though local-
ized large schools of redfish do
occur, there has been slow ero-
sion in the number of juveniles
escaping to the offshore
spawning stock, which is criti-
cal for the long-term health and
abundance of the species. In-
creasing the bag limit would
likely result in a significant in-


killing, harassing or posses-
sion of crocodiles.
5. Never feed or entice
crocodiles. It is dangerous and
illegal. When fed, crocodiles
may overcome their natural
wariness and learn to associ-
ate people with food.
6. Dispose of fish scraps in
garbage cans at boat ramps or
fish camps. Do not throw
them in the water. Although
you are not intentionally feed-
ing crocodiles when you do
this, the result can be the
same.
7. Never remove a croco-
dile from its natural habitat or
accept one as a pet. It is illegal
and dangerous to do so. Croc-
odiles cannot become tame in
captivity, and handling even a
small one could result in a
bite.
8. Observe and photograph
crocodiles only from a dis-
tance. Remember they are an
important part of Florida's
natural history as well as an
integral component of the
ecosystems in which they live.

crease in the recreational har-
vest, which would put the stock
well below the management
goal, according to FWC biolo-
gists.
The FWC recently convened
a stakeholder workgroup meet-
ing to gather input on the future
of the redfish fishery. After re-
viewing the latest scientific
data, group members were in-
clined to suggest a cautionary,
proactive management ap-
proach to ensure continued
success for the redfish fishery,
including possibly adjusting
the slot limit or closing harvest
during certain periods of the
year.
The FWC \\ill schedule ad-
ditional workgroup meetings to
help determine an appropriate
redfish management strategy.
The Commission will conduct
a public review of the redfish
stock assessment during the
FWC's April 6 meeting starting
at 8:30 a.m. at the Ramada Inn
and Conference Center, 2900

RN program. Students gave
tours of new laboratories and
demonstrated simulation equip-
ment which mimics actual pa-
tient conditions-some too real
for even the most stalwart.
"I did not need to see that,"
said one ,gentleman after a
demonstration of a simulation
"pregnant patient." He chuckled
and turned to the next demon-
stration station. According to
nursing staff, the realism of the
simulators is what makes them
such effective teaching tools.
According to nursing director
Nita Fico, "Everyone comment-

love hearing that. And, the sim-

In remarks to the group Steen

Make your back yard into a sanctuary for outdoor pets


(ARA) A huge percentage of Americans
have pets. Whether we live with dogs, cats,
fish' or any other animal friends, we love the
companionship they offer. On the other hand,
we consider anything outside our home to be
"wildlife." While that word is accurate,,it can
also be misleading.
As wildlife in particular birds learn to
live with the ever-sprawling human
population, we have a unique opportunity. It is
our chance to "adopt". these wonderful
outdoor pets. Here are some simple but
important things you can do to make your
yard into a sanctuary for outdoor pets (with
special thanks to "6 Steps To Turn Your Yard
Into A Sanctuary For Birds," a philosophy
created and endorsed by the Wild Bird
Feeding Industry [www.wbfi.org]).
1. Make your yard welcoming to outdoor
pets
The more humans there are in the world, the
less natural habitat remains for birds and
wildlife. This can have unpredictable and
often adverse effects on their ability to adapt
and even survive. What can you do? You can
make your back yard more attractive to birds
and other outdoor pets by landscaping with
native plants that provide natural food
sources, shelter from the elements and
predators, and nesting sites. Set up feeders and
keep them well stocked. Put up nesting boxes
for birds. Make sure that there is fresh water
for birds and animals to drink. Have fun and
use landscaping that fits your style and


Tour on Thursday.
Journalists from
across the country,
including locations
such as Los Angeles,
New Orleans and
Texas, began arriving
Wednesday evening
and early Thursday
morning to see the
sights and sounds of
Columbia County.
After seeing the
many attractions of the
county and surround-
ing areas, such as
Stephen Foster Folk
Culture Center State
Park, Ichetucknee
Springs,, Olustee
Battefield, Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park
and the Suwannee
River Wilderness Trail,
the journalists write
stories about what
they've seen for news-
papers and magazines
across the country.
Campbell said the an
extensive process is
used to select writers
to attend the press
tours.
S"We will have some-
thing like Travel Media
Showcase, where
journalists from around
the country are there,
along with us,"
Campbell said.
"Basically we'll inter-
view each other, where
we find information
about the writer and
they find information
about the county."
Campbell noted that
; normally writers are,
not selected if they live
west of the Mississippi.
River, unless they bring
extensive credentials
for write for a specialty
publication.
"In the past 30
months, we've had 73
journalists here to
write about Columbia
County," Campbell
said. "They have pro-
duced over 320 articles
about the area."
The articles repre-
sent the equivalent of
$2.5 million in paid
advertising, Campbell
said.
Campbell explained
that the credibility of a
written article is about
three times higher than
a paid advertisement.
"This is the single
most-important market-
ing method for
Columbia County,"


personality. As long as your top priority is
attracting and nourishing outdoor pets, your
work will not go unnoticed. In other words,
"if you build it, they will come."
2. Make an inviting (and healthy) menu
If you feed your dog treats all day, every
day, he will be unhealthy and even
(eventually) unhappy. In the same respect, if
you feed him dog food that lacks the nutrients
he needs to be healthy, he won't thrive. The
same idea applies to your outdoor pets.
Providing a safe and nutritious diet to birds
and wildlife is critical to the long-term success
of your backyard sanctuary. A great place to
start is by choosing a premium blend of wild
bird or outdoor pet food (for instance, Wild
Delight brand outdoor pet foods, available at
retailers nationwide).
These foods are specially cleaned,
formulated to be attractive and healthy, and
packaged to stay fresh. Refill feeders regularly
with blends that are desired by wild birds and
backyard pets in your area. By choosing a
premium outdoor pet food like Wild Delight,
you can feel good knowing that you are
providing the wholesome nutrition that birds
and backyard wildlife need to stay healthy and
vibrant. Stop in to your local wild bird shop to
learn more.
In addition, it is important to provide a
healthy, diet to outdoor pets year-round, not
just in the summer months. While many
species of birds migrate, many do. not. If you
provide good food, you can enjoy visitors all


Campbell said. "We
couldn't pay for an
advertisement that
would get the same
results as the articles
written by some of
these journalists."
The journalists were
able to experience the
best the area has to
offer, including canoe-
ing on the Suwannee
River and at Stephen
Foster, horseback rid-
ing at the Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park,
and tours of downtown
Lake City and Olustee
Battlefield.
Campbell also pro-._
vided historical infor-,,
mation a out Columbia
County and Lake City.
"I went to an event
called Travel Media
Showcase and Harvey
Canmpbell invited me on
this trip;" said Mark
Bradley, a freelance
writer for the
Independent
Newspapers of Illinois.
"Many of my readers
vacation in Florida and
near the Gulf of
Mexico. They come for
the beaches, but don't
know what is just a few
hours away from
them."
Bradley said that
many people don't
know of places like
Olustee Battlefield, but
it has one of the largest
civil war reenactments
Sin the country.
"Columbia County is
an interesting location,"
Bradley said. "It's a
place where many read-
ers may be interested
in and want to visit. It's
a hidden gem."
Alan Macher, a free-
lancer out of Ocala,
said that many people
are interested in learn-
ing about "natural
Florida."
"Many people think
that going to the beach
or Disney World means
that they've went to
Florida," Macher said.
"But that isn't Florida."
People want to know
about parts of Florida
that they're not familiar
with, Macher said.
"Readers like to learn
about the history of
locations like Olustee,"
Macher said. "Historic
perspectives and natu-
ral Florida are what
readers want to read."


year long.
3. Keep feeders full, clean and
sanitary
Statistics show that almost 80
percent of America's feeders are
empty at any one time. The more
consistent you are about feeding your
outdoor pets, the more birds you'll "
have to watch and enjoy. Plus, it's
wise to clean your feeders regularly.
Just like people, birds can transmit -
disease to one another by eating from
a dirty feeder. Clean-up doesn't have
to be a chore. Plastic and metal
feeders can go in the dishwasher, or
rinse these and other styles with a 10
percent solution of bleach and warm
water. While you're at it, scrub
birdbaths with a brush and replace
water every three to five days .to
discourage mosquito reproduction. ..' *
It's also a good idea to rake up and
dispose of seed hulls under feeders.
In fact, moving feeders now and then
helps to prevent the buildup of waste-'
on any one part of your yard. When _
it comes to storing food, keep seed
and other foods dry and discard any
that smells musty, is wet or looks
moldy. Hummingbird feeders should
be cleaned e\ ery three to fix e da\ s.
or every other da\ in wamrm \\ weather.
Finally, it's al\ay\s good hygiene to. \ ash your
hands after filling or cleaning feeders. Put

a Each year, millions of wild
h birds are killed by colliding
with windows. Oftentimes, the
r window is reflecting the sky or
0 vegetation, and the bird is
1n fooled into thinking it can fly
through them. Luckily, the
)r answer to this problem is
is relatively simple. First,
identify problem windows
W (typically larger, reflective
)r windows, those near the
ground, or those that "look
|Y through" the house). By
y- attaching colorful decals or
other decorations to the outside
surface of the window, you can
in effectively reduce the
a. reflections that the window
a-
creates.
te In addition, wild birds that
Iat are fleeing predators (including
predatory birds) are
particularly likely to collide
S- with windows (after all, their
mind is on other things, like
e, survival). If you notice this as
ie a problem, consider moving
your feeders to within three
feet of the problem window -
e. this prevents fleeing birds from
Ji accelerating to the point where
a collision becomes life
TY threatening. If you want to be
\r even safer, you could install
screens that allow birds to
U bounce off instead of crashing
into the glass.
These are just a few helpful
tips, but there is much more to
ie be learned about creating a
S successful environment for
outdoor pets. Find out more at

How to attract the seven most desired wild birds


(ARA) Every year, more
and more people are adopting
"outdoor pets" in their back
yard, whether they are
squirrels, rabbits or the most
popular outdoor pets of them
all -- wild birds. People have
loved feeding birds almost
since the beginning of time,
but for most of those years
there wasn't much nutritional
science involved. We just put
bread crumbs or bird seed in
the yard and took what we
could get. Luckily for wild
birds (and those who love to
feed them), times have
changed.
Not only have feeders come
a long way, but food itself has
evolved as well. No longer is
bulk seed the best way to feed
birds. Instead, premium foods
have turned wild birds into
outdoor pets, providing them
with superior nutrition and
tempting ingredients. Not
only has this resulted in
crowded feeders, it's allowed
wild bird enthusiasts to offer
specific foods in hopes of
attracting specific birds.
What are the most popular
wild birds to attract (and how
do you attract them)? Trends
indicate that these birds are
the magnificent seven:
northern cardinals,
chickadees, downy
woodpeckers, eastern
bluebirds, finches, grosbeaks
and indigo buntings. What
follows is a list of these birds,
where they live in the United
States, what feeders they
prefer and the foods they
love. Look for premium
outdoor pet mixes that include
these ingredients, and you'll
be on your way toward a new
flock of outdoor pets.

Northern Cardinal
This bright-red visitor is
one of the most beloved of all
wild birds. One of the most
visually stunning birds in the
world, cardinals make great
outdoor pel- Cardinals, live.
mainly' in the eastern United
States, from Canada all the
way to the Gulf states. They
will eat on hopper feeders,
tube feeders (with large holes)
and even platform feeders.
They love seeds, but also fruit
and berries, as well as nuts.
Choose a high-quality wild
bird food with these
ingredients and cardinals will
take notice. Cardinal-specific
foods (such as Wild Delight
Cardinal Food) are a great
bet, as long as they are clean
and include real fruits and
nuts, not just flavoring.

Black-Capped Chickadee
These friendly birds are
popular partially because they
are widespread (virtually all
of the northern states) and
partially because they are
cheerful and active.
Chickadees enjoy sunflower
seeds, peanuts and suet, as
well as berries in winter.
These clinging birds will eat
on hopper feeders, tube
feeders and platform feeders.
Most premium outdoor pet
foods will attract chickadees.
Try Wild Delight Nut N'
Berry or Wild Delight
Woodpecker, Nuthatch and
Chickadee Food for a great
start.

Downy Woodpecker
Often forgotten because of
their names, woodpeckers
actually love to eat on feeders
as well as on trees. Downy
woodpeckers range across
most of the U.S. (excluding
the far southwest) and will eat
on hopper feeders, platform
feeders and wire mesh
feeders. Downy woodpeckers
love sunflower seeds, corn,


tree nuts, suet and fruit
(especially in winter).
Premium foods with these
ingredients (preferably
containing real fruit and nuts)
are excellent ways to attract
these unique visitors. Wild
Delight Woodpecker,
Nuthatch and Chickadee Food
is a great way to feed these *
birds.


Eastern Bluebird
An American icon, this wild
bird is somewhat widespread
east of the Rocky Mountains.
These attractive birds will eat
on platform feeders as well as
on the ground. They will also
eat suet. They love fruits and
berries, and are particularly
attracted to the Virginia
Creeper, a woody vine that
produces berries (which are
poisonous to mammals but
fine for birds). Try Wild
Delight Total Cuisine in your
feeder to attract bluebirds.

Finches
There-are many types of
finches, and they are all well-
loved. From the handsome
house finch to the arresting
goldfinch, there is almost
certainly a member of the
finch family who'will visit
.your backyard. These friendly
birds will eat from hopper
feeders, tube feeders (with
small holes) and special finch
"sock feeders." These wild
birds love thistle, seeds, fruit
and suet. Specifically
formulated foods such as


Wild Delight Special Finch
food are an excellent way to
satisfy these popular outdoor
pets.

Grosbeaks
Rose-breasted grosbeaks,
blue grosbeaks and especially
evening grosbeaks spread
across much of the U.S.
While not all grosbeaks are
technically "related," they do
share some similarities. Most
will feed on hopper feeders,
platform feeders and tube
feeders (with large holes).
They like to eat seeds
(sunflower, in particular) as
well as some fruits (cherries
are a favorite) and corn. Put
foods that include real fruit
into your feeder. Wild Delight
Fruit & Berry is a solid
choice.

Indigo Bunting
A cousin of the cardinal, the
male indigo bunting is deep,
iridescent blue. These are
some of the most stunningly
beautiful birds in the wild.
They eat on hopper feeders
and platform feeders. Attract


them to your yard by offering
outdoor pet foods with mixed
seeds and real nuts. A good
food to start with is Wild
Delight Gourmet Wild Bird
Food.
There are many more wild
birds to feed, of course. In
fact, discovering new visitors
on your backyard feeders is
one of the great joys of being
a wild bird enthusiast. For
more information on wild
birds and-their diets, pick up a
book (the National Audubon
Society's North American
Birdfeeder Handbook by
Robert Burton is an excellent
addition to any library) or
check out the Wild Bird
Feeding Industry's web site at
www.wbfi.org.
Find out for yourself how
exciting it can be to have
outdoor pets flocking to your
feeders. With the right mix of
foods and feeders, you can
make your yard into a popular
destination for wild birds.
Soon you'll be counting the
number of outdoor pets that
you call your own.
