Live Oak man killed



in farm accident


Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor
It was a nightmare no one ever wants to
experience when a wife found her husband
pinned underneath a burning, overturned
tractor Saturday evening, Apri 22.
John Clare Saunders apparently died after
his tractor overturned and the seat pinned
him to the ground.


An investigation is continuing to deter-
mine if Saunders, 52, of 169th Road, died
from the tractor's impact or the fire that en-
gulfed the tractor afterward.
According to a report filed by Suwannee
County Deputy Jake Greene, Saunders left
his home at about 6:30 p.m. to take the
tractor into the field to move some dirt.
Saunders' wife, Joanne, told Greene that

The Florida Commission
on Ethics has exonerated
City Councilman George
Blake on ethics charges filed
against him in 2003.
Blake came under investi-
gation b, the Florida Com-
mission on Ethics after a for-
mer city building inspector,
Michael Christensen, filed a
complaint against him claim-
ing that Blake tried to intim-
idate him into not enforcing
the Florida Building Code

later quit his job after only
nine wteeks and left town.
"I'm glad it's over," Blake
,said this week. "I knew I
had not harmed the guy!"


Blake said it's been a long
and expensive fight to clear
his name. "He (Christensen)
harmed a lot of people in
Live Oak, and I stood up to
him is the way I feel," Blake
said. "I wish him well."
A Florida Division of Ad-
ministrative Hearings judge
recommended earlier this
year that all charges against
Blake be dropped and that
Blake be found innocent.
The Ethics Commission
heard Blake's case April 21
and did just that, adopting
the recommended order, ac-
cording to Blake's Live Oak

Recent thefts in the ceme-
tery located off Winderweedle
Street have prompted some of
the rules but others came
about at the urging of City
Council President Don '
Boyette who told members of
the city cemetery committee
and the City Council that
changes should be made in
line with what has been done
at the cemetery at his own
church.
With the adoption of the
rules, which was not done as
an ordinance and can be
changed at any time, come
changes such as gates being
closed at night, no planting of
anything at the grave site, no
placement of any objects at
the gravesite and the city's
right to cut down any trees or
shrubbery they deem a prob-
lem.
The rules have been under
discussion for months while
most members of the Council
refused to go along with
Boyette's suggestions to make
the changes. However, this
month, the Council members
relented' and voted in the
changes.
The changes will basically
eliminate any trees or bushes
being planted in the future at
the cemetery and could in fu-
ture years see the removal of
all shrubs and trees to reduce
the cost of maintenance.
New rules for the veterans'
part of the cemetery were sug-
gested by the American Le-
gion Post #107 and adopted
by the City Council as fol-
lows:
1. Veterans being interred
are Suwannee County resi-
dents
2. Monuments to be uni-
form flat military type mark-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Dear Editor:
RE: Column titled, "Leave God Alone-Cure Cancer,
on page 6A of Wednesday, April 12, paper.
It was a good piece until the next to last paragraph.
There were the words of atheist and agnostic re-
versed so that the definitions-were wrong.,
Atheist someone who believes nothing
Agnostic someone who questions the probability of
a higher power
A good proof-reader and a good dictionary are both
excellent investments.
Lillian G. Furst

Editor:
Just a note to thank you for your gracious support in
running the article for our benefit for Ronald Norris.
We are so pleased to say it was a tremendous success.
A total of over $2,000 was raised; and Easter Sunday af-
ternoon he received a call that a donor has been found.
He will have the surgery soon.
GOD IS ALIVE and in control! Thank you again and
may God truly bless. .

LET'S TALK ABOUT LETTERS

Tips on sharing your

opinions in the paper
Ne%% paper readers love letters to the editor. For that
matter newspaper editors love letters tothe editor.
Letters let us know what you think. Letters provide great
reading. Letters offer valuable feedback.
Lately; readers of the Suwannee Democrat.have been send-
ing us plenty of letters, and we encourage you to keep
them coming. All letters will be read. Not all letters will be
published. Let us offer a few letter-writing suggestions:
Keep it short. We all prefer reading shorter items that
get to the point. An ideal range is between 150 and 200
words.
Don't rant. Nothing turns readers away like a mis-
guided rant. Aim for a persuasive, rational argument sup-
ported by facts and figures.
Be topical. Know the issues that are in the news. Let-
ters focused on issues, particularly local issues, are the best
read.
Expect to be edited. Although the Suwannee Democrat
makes every effort not to, all newspapers should reserve
the right to edit. The editor should not alter the writer's
point of view. Well-written letters require less editing.
Be legible. If you don't have a computer or a type-
writer, please write dearly. If need be, print. The Suwannee
Democrat also requires letters to include the writer's name,
address, telephone number and written signature. The
telephone number will not be printed but is used for veri-
fication.
This newspaper will not run unsigned letters.

COMMENTARY

Advice columnists are everywhere


On the average, I get three
or four submissions of advice-
columns in my. e-mail every
day.
'.. --These advice pieces run the
gamut. One female writer
^^'i^ wants :to sell me a column on
how a housewife can deal
with daily frustrations. A.
'* medical writer wants to dis-
Dwain Walden cuss new medicines and their
side effects. A religious writer
tells people how to stay out of hell.
I think this open season on advice columns has
come about after Dr. Phil has made a large fortune
miriding other people's business on television.
That guy can tell you how to do everything but'
grow hair on a bald head. If he ever conquers that
one, he'll record more profits than Exxon.
I've decided that you don't have to be an expert
to snare an audience in the "advice" venue. If you
can talk the street language or get downright
folksy in the course of giving advice, you can mes-
merize your audience with stuff they already
know.
Have you ever wondered about those people
who go on television and air their dirty laundry to
Dr. Phil and the entire world? well, the entire
world except maybe Bosnia and Ethiopia. Those
people have real problems and would swap star-
vation and malaria any day for a husband who
snores and leaves his dirty socks on the floor.
Now I'm not poohpooing professional counsel-
ing. I'm talking about those advisers who last
week were working at Snuffy Lube or Penny Mae's
Boutique and this week they are telling readers
how to manage their busy day without taking val-
ium.
And a lot of the success of this stuff is about mak-
ing people think they need this help the power
of suggestion.
The other night on television I saw a lady who
had found a new career as a "professional closet
organizer." I suppose it never occurred to her


clients t9 put slacks on one side and shirts on the
other. No one has written ityet, but I fully expect
to see a book in the self-help section of a national
book store titled, "A Closet in Chaos."
So what's next, someone who color coordinates
sock drawers? And to expand their market, they
would write advice columns about this?,
I've never thought of my closet as being orga-
nized or unorganized. I would not admit it pub-'
licly if a space roughly two feet by five feet was
confising to me. I think that would be indicative of
,much greater problems. I might need a real doctor.
People can easily be led to believe they need ad-
vice or a new.gadget. Have you ever watched those
guys selling knives on television you know, the
guy who has a knife that you can slice a tomato
with or use that same knife to cut firewood or filet
a shark? And when he demonstrates this, people in
the audience applaud. These are the same people
they stuff, into Dr. Phil's audience. He can tell a
couple allegedly having marriage problems that
they need to grow up and quit acting silly, and it
will draw loud applause. My grandma could have
told them the same thing sitting on her front porch
and not only would they not have been embar-
rassed on the world stage, she would have invited
them to supper smothered fried chicken in thick
white gravy with cathead biscuits. Talk about-great
therapy!
Now I've cheered loudly when a wide receiver
went three feet over a safety's head and came
down dragging his feet to stay in bounds in the
corner of the end zone for six points. But never in
my life have I applauded a fellow selling knives.
Not even Ecclesiastes goes that far. There is not a
time to high-five a knife salesman.
Oh, by the way, in reference to that guy who
talks about the side effects of new. medicines: Did
you know that some cholesterol medicines will
cause men to have hot flashes? My wife thinks it's
kind of funny. She says, "And now you know."

W~'nNF fl API 2. 200 U SUWNNE DEOCATLIEA


Relay
Continued From Page 1A

Participants will be gathering
at the Suwannee High School
track for the American Cancer
Society (ACS) 10th Annual Re-
lay for Life April 28 at 6 p.m. The
event will continue throughout
the night and into the morning.
Relay Chairperson Marti
Carver said the event will raise
money to fund research to fight
the disease, support programs for
those on the road to recovery and
spread awareness about cancer.
Carver said participants who
establish teams for the event
commit to an all-night endeavor,
where members trade off walk-
ing or running laps. However, in-
dividuals can walk or run any
number of laps and leave at their
convenience. And those who
aren't into pounding out laps
around the track can still make
strides for the cause by donating
money.
The event also honors cancer


survivors and remembers cancer
victims. The event'will kick off
with the Survivor's Lap where
cancer survivors will take to the
pavement first making the start-
ing round. After sundown a lumi-
nary ceremony will honor the
memory of cancer victims.
Names of family and friends be-
ing honored or remembered will
be displayed on the outside of lu-
minaries that will be placed at the
track. Bags and candles will be
provided at the event.
Food, drawings and activities
are planned for the night. One
such activity is a twisted pie-eat-
ing contest where two people will
compete in eating the desserts.
"We had fourth graders deco-
rate the bags for the luminaries,"
Carver said.
Carver said this year two can-
cer survivors will be honored at
the Relay for Life. Leonor Sulli-
van will be recognized as a can-
cer survivor for more than 20
years, and Julia Sperring will be


honored as a survivor for 24
years.
"Right now we have 50 or 60
cancer survivors signed up," she
said.
Carver said some of the mon-
ey raised will be used on a local
level. The Treatment Volunteer
Program in Live Oak is one out-
let funds will go toward. In the
program volunteers drive cancer
patients to doctor's appointments
or for treatment. There are also
support groups for cancer pa-
tients and opportunities for can-
cer caregivers and others in the
community the funds will im-
pact.
Carver said she first got in-
volved with ACS efforts during
her involvement with the Rotary
Club in New Port Richey after
she lost both of her husband's
parents to lung cancer.
"My husband's father, who
smoked, died of lung cancer and
his mom died years later of lung
cancer from second-hand


smoke," she said. "The day my
husband's father died was the day
he quit smoking."
Carver said one of her goals
for this year was to get enough
sponsorship to cover all of the
event's expenses and have funds
left over to go toward the cause.
She met that goal.
"Every penny raised, is going


to ACS," she said. "I've been so
happy with the response from
everyone in Live Oak. This town
is such a gracious area and they
have shown it by their support."
In the last nine years Relay for
Life teams and corporate spon-
sors in Live Oak have raised
more than $315,000. During the
same time the event has celebrat-


ed more than .684 cancer sur-
vivors and more than 3,400 lumi-
naries have been lit to honor vic-
tims.
Carver said pre-registration is
not required.

A. An immediate denture is a denture that is made
before a patient's remaining teeth are removed so
there is no period in which the patient has no
teeth. Making an immediate denture involves
taking impressions of the patient's mouth before
the remaining teeth are removed. Since the
immediate denture is placed over the extraction
site, it helps prevent swelling. However, bones
and gums can shrink over time, especially during
the healing process. That means an immediate
denture may have to be relined at some point.
Another type of denture is referred to as a
conventional denture. A patient doesn't receive
her conventional denture until after remaining
teeth have been removed and the tissue has
healed.' ,
A third option is an overdenture. This is an
appliance that fits over a small number of
remaining teeth i the dentist believes those teeth
are strong enough to support a ,denture.
Overdentures are most frequently applied on the
lower jaw. Talk with your dentist to determine if
you are a candidate for a denture.

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

attorney George Blow. "It
took a long time and a lot of
the taxpayers' money," said
Blow. Although Blow has
been paid about $40,000 by
Blake for his legal services,
Blake will turn a bill over to.
the city of Live Oak and
likely will be reimbursed by
the city under a city ordi-
nance that pays for legal fees
for city officials charged in,
the line of duty.
"The vote was 5-to 3 to
dismiss the charges," said
Christensen in an email to
the Democrat April 25. "I
think the citizens of Live.
Oak deserve much better
than the likes of George
Blake."
Blake said the complaint
and the three years of legal
entanglement has left its
mark on he and his family.


"It's an ordeal, it really is,"
he said. "It's been very
stressful to all of us and
we're glad it's over," Blake
added. But, he said, his fam-
ily was very supportive.
"I'm, 71, I've never.been ar-
rested or charged with any-
thing before this, nor have
my parents or my children
been arrested or charged as
juveniles or adults."
Blake said he had decided
not to run again this year for
re-election after serving 16
years on the City Council,
but said his decision had
nothing to do with the ethics
case. "I did not choose not to
run because of this ethics
charge. It was just time," he
said.
As far as Blake is con-
cemed, the issue is settled
and he said he'll not pursue
any type of legal action
against Christensen.

many are at their limit for tax-
es,' said Smith. "This is the
second year we've tried to get
this bill passed, and this year it
has made it past all the com-
mittee hurdles in the Senate
and the House. I expect it to be
on the floor for a vote in both
chambers soon," Smith said. "I
want to remind our local gov-
ernment leaders to help moti-
vate the Legislature to take ac-
tion on the issue this year and
to work together to clarify out-
standing issues pertaining to
the funding of the proposal."
The Revenue Estimating
Conference has estimated that
the amount available to 29 fis-
cally constrained counties will
be approximately $16 million
for fiscal year 2006-07. The es-
timated amounts range from a
high of $792,631 for Union,
Holmes and Calhoun Counties


to a low of $160,524 for
Franklin County.
Suwannee County is one of
the fiscally constrained coun-
ties that will be affected.
County Commissioner
Randy Hatch said the bill is a
result of a position paper enti-
tled "Counties in Crisis,"
which was turned over to Sen.
Smith. "Sen. Smith showed ex-
traordinary leadership in
bringing much needed relief to
small counties like Suwannee
County with the bill he is co-
sponsoring that relates to the
crisis in fiscally constrained
counties," Hatch said. Hatch,
who serves as second vice
president of the Florida Associ-
ation of Counties and secretary
of the Small County Coalition,
said Suwannee County owes a
debt of gratitude to Sen. Smith,
Sen. Nancy Argenziano, Rep.
Dwight Stansel, as well as the
FAC and the Small County


Coalition for enhancing
Suwannee counties revenues
by nearly $700,000 a year (ap-
proximately the value of one
mill) if the bill passes. Hatch
said he believes it will pass.
Smith credits bills sponsors
Rep. Joe Pickens and Sen.
Carey Baker with creating sup-
port for the effort. "This is truly
a bi-partisan effort by those us
who represent and understand
the challenges facing small
counties in Florida," he points
out, The Senator notes that the.
bill is expected to be on calen-
dar for a vote in both the Sen-
ate and the House prior to the
end of session.
Smith notes this is a change
the counties have been seeking
for some time. "I know that in
the past, the Legislature has as-
'signed new duties to our coun-
ty governments without provid-
ing the funding support for
new mandates," he said."It is


our job to help support the
counties in doing the many
jobs we ask them to do for our
citizens."
The legislation is designed to
benefit those counties where
one mill of taxation raises less
than $4 million. There are 29
Florida counties that would fit
the definition for receipt of
these additional funds in the
current version of the SB 1612.
The amount each county is eli-
gible to receive under the pro-
posed guidelines varies by pop-
ulation and current tax mileage.
Counties, targeted for the rev-
enue boost are Baker, Brad-
ford, Calhoun, Columbia, Des-
oto, Dixie, Franklin, Gadsden,
Gilchrist, Glades, Gulf, Hamil-
ton, Hardee, Hendry, Holmes,
Jackson, Jefferson, Lafayette,
Levy, Liberty, Madison, Okee-
chobee, Putnam, Sumter,
Suwannee, Taylor, Union,
Wakulla, and Washington.


Accident


Continued From Page 1A

when her husband didn't re-
turn by about 9 p.m., she
went to the field to look for
him and found him under-
neath the tractor which was
fully involved with fire. The
wife called 911 and a fire
truck, ambulance and


Greene were dispatched to
the scene. Once the fire was
out, paranredics pronounced
Saunders deceased,
Greene's report stated.
Greene said in his report
that it appeared Saunders
was traveling east on the
tractor in the pasture on
family property across from


Rocky Sink Baptist Church
on 169th Road -\hen the left
rear tire struck a large hay
bale. As the tractor's left tire
traveled over the hay bale, it
apparently caused the tractor
to flip onto. its top, pinning
Saunders to the ground.
The State Fire Marshal's
Office was also called to the


scene to assist with the case.
Saunders moved to Live
Oak in 1956 and retired af-
ter 16 years as a rural mail
carrier. He was a member
and vice president of the
Suwannee County Cattle-
men's Association and at-
tended Melody Christian
Church.


He is survived by his wife
Joanne Saunders, daughters,
Allyssa (James) Broom of
Trenton, Melody (Jon)
Mullins of Valdosta, Ga., a
son, Evan (Shannon) Saun-
ders of Hahira, Ga.; two sis-
ters, Dr. Marilyn (John)

brothers, Hiram (Emily)

Q Should I consider my pets
when choosing carpet?

A Wlen choosing carpet for a bome with pets, the first thing to
iunk about is color not just the color uf the room, but the
0 color l 'your pet is he black. white or broin? Does he shed
lot' Ift' ou ha -i apei nith darker hair. CRI recommends
A purchasing a rr medium ito. dark carpel io help camouflage
shedding: The same goes for. lighter-haired pets. Of :,ou ;e, thi .s for hose
times when you don't vacuum as often as you would like. Keep in mind that
a dark carpet may not be the best option for your white-haired, four-legged
friend. ,
"Carpet is very forgiving," says Ken McIntosh, director of technical
services for CRI. "It not only helps disguise animal hair, it also helps
minimize airborne pet dander'and keeps those fuzzy hairballs from forming
in a room's corners as they do with hard floors. Vacuum often for
cleanliness and for-the carpet's appearance."
The pet's activities may dictate a certain type of carpet. People whose dogs
are vigorous diggers, or. whose cats enjoy "kneading" surfaces with their
claws, should avoid carpet with large loops, as claws can become caught in
the pile more easily. "
Comfort should also be a consideration, as pets, like their owners, enjoy
softness underfoot. In fact, a study by the American Pet Association found
that more than seven million dogs spend their nights on the floor.

The activities of the outback
has settled somewhat from the
last couple of weeks, but our
mother city, Live Oak, was
jamming with all the excite-
ment of the Suwannee River
Jam this past weekend, April
20-22, at the Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park. Don
and I went on Saturday, thanks
to some gift tickets from a
generous friend. We really en-
joyed listening to Mel Mc-


Daniel sing songs reminiscent
of the days when we first be-
gan to date. And though Mel
didn't sing it, I call to mind
one of my favorite oldies,
"Those Were The Days My
Friends." Words \from the
song's chorus reflect a lot of
what I saw happening in the
crowds of Jammers enjoying
themselves, "Those were the
days my friends, we thought
they'd never end, we'd sing

and dance, forever and a day."
But now, as .I enter into my
days of wisdom, I compare
myself to Dorothy in "The
Wizard of Oz" movie. At
some point in time, I just
wanted to put my ruby slip-
pers on, click my heels, repeat
the words, "There is no place
like home," and wake up, no,
not in Kansas, but at home, in
the Wellborn outback. Noth-
ing like a night in the big city
to make this country girl long
for the green grass of home ...
hee-haw!
The Wellborn Neighbor-
hood Watch (WNW) will hold
its monthly meeting this
Thursday, April 27, at 7 p.m.
at the Blake Lowe Center
(BLC), located at 1517 4th
Ave., just north of the railroad
tracks. Jerry Scarborough,
from Suwannee River Water


Management District, will be
this month's special guest
speaker. Scarborough will be
speaking on a variety of con-
cerns that anyone should ad-
dress when desiring to work
with wetlands on, or adjoining
to, their property; projects
such as clearing and working
with wetlands, adding ponds,
drainage ditches or culverts to
properties. There will be a
question and answer session
during the meeting, giving
Scarborough the opportunity
to address the environmental
impact that may accompany
any proposed project, which
projects the water manage-
ment would likely approve,
and those they would not ap-
prove. The condition of the
area's many fresh water
springs and rivers will also be
topics of discussion during

for the generous love offering
that was collected at this

George Fuller's wife, Christy,
informing me that George was
admitted to North Florida Re-
gional Medical Center in

Fuller is one of the few citi-,
zens, that I personally know
who attends almost every
county commission meeting,
and has gotten a reputation of
being some what of a watch
dog of county government and
its' officials. Please keep
George and Christy in prayer.
It is time for happy trails ...
please remember our troops
and their families in prayer.
Help a wayfaring stranger and

Winter Of 1978 Won't Be As


Cold As Last Year's Freeze


Suwannie Countans bundled up for the brisk weather last
week, but the dreaded return of last year's bitter cold may not
come to pass. .
This year's winter is expected to be colder than normal for this
part of the state, but it will be warmer tan last year. a
University of Florida climatologist predicted recently
"I DON'T THINK WE'LL HAVE ANY record-breaking tenm-
peratures like last year." associate professor in the UF physical
science and geography departments Jim Henry said
The upper atmosphere which controls weather patterns hasn't
developed as it did last year, aind it's:abnormal to have record-
breaking temperatures two years in a row. Henry reported
October's cold spell and last week's freeze don't mean another
bitter winter. Henry suggested It takes long-term atmospheric
conditions to produce a consistently cold winter, he said
Henry noted thai all of North America will experience a.
cooling trend during the next 10 years and possibly (or the next 50
years. .
The cooling trend will mean about two degrees per year, but

during the Ice Age the temperature was often only about 10
degrees colder than it is now, Henry advised. Henry said that it's
only been warmer than this a few times in the earth's history.
THE CLIMATOLOGIST SAID THAT there's no doubt that
another ice age it approaching, but that glaciers won't exist in
the United States for many thousands of years
Suwannee Count' farmers might notice the current cooling
trend before other residents. Henry reported that an average
annual temperature drop of one-half degree since 194I has
.reduced hay yields in Iceland by 15 to 17 per cent.

16 BK


Continued From Page 1B

since 2001 and the overall se-
ries record is 2-2, with
Suwannee evening up the se-
ries with the win Tuesday
night.
Suwannee first met this
legendary program in 2001
when junior left-hander
Hunter Abercrombie defeated
the then number-five ranked
team in the nation on a six
hitter in the first round of the
playoffs. This Bishop Kenny
team would come one run
from reaching the final four
that season.
The next two meetings be-
tween Suwannee and Bishop
Kenny would occur last sea-
son with Kenny taking both
games. The first was played
at Suwannee High in an 11-
10 slugfest. They faced off
again in Jacksonville with
Suwannee losing 6-5 in an
extra-inning game.
This time there would be
no late inning heroics, ac-
cording to Gray. Suwannee
took all the suspense out of
the game early. The Bull-
dogs scored early and often
and broke the game. open in
the fourth. With one run in
the first and three in second,
one in the third and a nine-
run fourth that put the game
out of reach for BK.
Suwannee took a 14-4 lead
into the fifth. Kenny would
squeeze in a homerun making
the score 14-5 to extend the
game one more inning.
Suwannee answered with two
runs in the top of sixth and
held Kenny scoreless in the
bottom to, assure the 10-run
ruled shortened game.
"There is no question this
is one of those signature wins
we talk about trying to get
and it will resonate through-
out the state," Gray said.
"They (the players) did an


outstanding job on mentally
preparing and physically
playing the game."
Offensively, Suwannee
banged out 19 hits off Bishop
Kenny pitching. Billy Moran
went 4 for 4 with four-runs
scored, a bases clearing triple
and four RBIs.
Rheed Baldwin also went 4
for 4 with two runs scored, a
double and his 10th homerun
of the year a three-run shot in
the nine-run fourth inning.
Gabe Galloway went 2 for
4 with a run scored and a
double. Zack Davis had a big
night going 3 for 5 and Tay-
lor Abercrombie would have
another multiple hit game go-
ing 2 for 4 with a run scored
and two RBIs.
"We were looking for some
momentum at this time of
year and to come into this en-
vironment and play this well
is exactly the kind of things
you look for to push you this
time of year," Gray said.
On the mound Mark Rad-
ford a tough luck loser a sea-
son ago in the extra inning
game at Kenny would redeem
himself working four innings
allowing five runs on seven
hits and striking out three.
Moran came in as relief of
Radford in the fifth and al-
lowed one run over the two
innin.2s to secure the win..,
"I did not think our pitch-
ers threw well at all, but
some how it was enough,"
Gray said. "Our pitching
staff has the challenge of try-
ing to find the success we ex-
perienced early if we are to
expect to continue playing at
this time of year, they un-
derstand this and have very
clear understanding of what I
am talking about and they
will work-as hard as they can
no question. But in a win like
this all you can really say is
great job regardless."

help of Officer Brett Gill, Sum-
mers secured the canoe and
equipment and delivered the
property to HSPD as well. The

While off duty, Officer Todd
Hoyle was monitoring "Hunt-
ing Chat Room" sites on his
computer, when he came across
a turkey hunter's story, along
with photos, of his first gobbler
taken in Columbia County.
The next day, back on duty,
Hoyle ran the man's name
through dispatch to ensure the
man had a license and turkey
stamp. As it turned out, the
man did not have either. Hoyle
made contact with the man at
his home and showed him the
photos of his first turkey and
asked to see his license and


your own pen-raised quail.
If you find these special-op-
portunity hunts appealing, you,
may apply for one or more of
these fall hunts beginning May
9. The FWC will continue ac-
cepting applications for special-
opportunity hunts through June
14. Worksheets are available
from any FWC regional office
or MyFWC.com/hunting. To
apply for these hunt permits,

ter license. The computer
check also revealed that the
man had two active warrants
for his arrest.

IHeafer Reader, Advitqr
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.

Todos aquellos que no triunfan, se sienten con mala suerte,
estAin disatisfechos, permitan que la mujer que sabe les ay ude.
Ella les quita las malas influencias. Si su esposo o esposa le es
infield, veala ahora. Ella les arregla los desacuerdos entra
enamorados. le ayuda a ganar al ser perdido y los sentimientos
del ser amado y les ensefia el camino a la felicidad. Ella le dice
quienes son sus anigos y enemigos y le dice si sus amistades
son verdaderas o falsas. Ella le ayuda a encontrar su
propriedad perdida o robada.
Ella no dice que es Dios. Ella es una sierva del Sefior quien fue
traida aquf para ayudar a la humanidad. Si Ud. tiene algun
problema del pasado, present, o future, amor. matrimonio,
negocio. pleito legal, financial, salud: si Ld. estai en problema.
enfernmo o enamorado. no hay ningun problema tan grande
que ella no pueda resolver.

Steinhatchee is located in the "Big Bend"
at the mouth of the Steinhatchee River.
Steinhatchee's location places it in the very
heart of the Nature Coast.
Steinhatchee has always been a popular
spot for fishing and hunting.

flats provide habitat for salt water fish. nics and swimming. Don't forget the upper

best. Steinhatchee's restaurants are the per-
fect place, featuring good times and great
food enjoyed by family and friends
Steinhatchee is a great place to enjoy the
outdoors, slow down and relax. Well worth
a visit. An even better place to live.


Fishing makes Steinhatchee a popular spot


By Brian Smith
I have a feeling that most
folks interested in fishing
within this readership have
fished Steinhatchee. But just'
in case there are aTew that
haven't visited Steinhatchee
and this being the first install-
ment in the Steinhatchee
Overview I thought an intro-
duction would be appropriate.
First, a brief introduction
about the author and then an
overview of Steinhatchee and
quick fishing report. Let's
get started.


My name is Brian Smith.
My wife, Gina and I operate
Big Bend Charters from
Steinhatchee with the help of
our fine mate Brian Homsby
a.k.a. Lil B. It sounds like
we're in the fishing business
but actually we feel we are in
the people business because it
hasibeen a pleasure taking
such a variety of people fish-
ing over the past eight years.
Grouper are the bread and
butter fish for our charter
business and we target them.
However, I realize it is a big


pond out there and there are
some other,wonderful fish to
tangle with. With that in
mind, we will certainly make
time to pursue other fish such..
as king fish, amberjack, co-
bia, jewfish and shark de-
pending on the crew. A char-
ter, to me, is an opportunity
to introduce folks to different
techniques and as many
species of fish as I can in that
brief time together. The val-
ue of a fish is far more than a
frozen slab of meat from a
freezer. I like to give a man
more than a fish but some-
thing they can use for the rest
of their lives. It is a balanc-
ing act between bringing to
the dock a quality catch of
grouper and other fish while
giving away something inter-
esting to remember or better
yet something useful for an-
other place and time. More
information about us is avail-


able on line at www.bigbend-
charters.com. Please excuse,
any self promotion but I
thought it good to know who
is doing the scribbling.
Steinhatchee is still a small
but developing town at the
end of Hwy. 51 on the south-
ern line of Taylor County.
The people are friendly and
accustomed to hosting travel-
ers with angling ambitions.
The at home population is
1500 but on weekends it can
get crowded with visitifig
fishermen and fisherwomen
or scallopers from July 1
through September 10.
Lodging runs the gamut from
rustic fishing accommoda- .
tions to resort living to meet
your needs. Costs are quite
reasonable, really, when you
consider elsewhere. There
are a few local, non-fran-
chised, restaurants in town
that serve good food from a


country morning hearty
breakfast to fine dining in the
evening. A simple question
will get you pointed in the
right direction of the food
you like. Of course, you can
always cook your own catch
of the day. And some restau-
rants will cook your catch for
you. Again ask around.
There is one grocer, Ma-
sons', in the heart of town
that can supply you with the
staples. Don't come empty if
you're coming late. This
'ain't' the big city, Masons'
closes at 9 p.m. sharp. There
are convenience store options
until 11 p.m.
Fishing is what made
Steinhatchee a popular desti-
nation. It started out with
trout fishing. Especially
yester year, in the winter
when 'axe handle' trout
would jam the river, and fish-
ermen would clog the river


with boats so thick you could
walk across from boat to
boat. Since, fishing interest
.expanded out on the un-end-
ing grass flats which have re-
mained pristine %with a fishery
envied by over-developed
Florida regions.' The flats of-
fer trout, redfish, cobia, pom-
pano, tarpon, bluefish, Span-
ish mackerel, sharks of vari-
ous types and other fish.
Creeks pop out here and
there. Stick the nose of your
boat in the mouth of creek
and follow its' meander and
feel like Columbus in search
of redfish, trout, flounder
and, maybe, a surprise. Exer-
cise caution when running
your boat close to shore.
Limerock outcrops litter ran-,
dom bottom and have a histo-
ry of stealing props and lower
units. It can be costly to be

four days during the Christ-
mas holidays. It was their
second visit with all four of
their children and their fami-
lies. Among other outdoor
adventures, the Carters went
deep-sea fishing, catching
over 400 pounds of grouper,
one of Florida's favorite
fish. Returning from their
fishing trip at 5 p.m., by
6:30 p.m. they were having a
fish fry out on the lawn of
their Victorian cottage.
"The main thing to do
here is to fish and scallop,"
says Fowler. The pristine
shoreline and shallow vrass.:
flats provide habitat fdrany
number of saltwater fish,
making for great sport fish-
ing. Beginning in July and
ending around Sept. 10, va-
cationers can take a small
boat out to approximately,
three feet of water to collect
the scallops. The. shellfish
are found by snorkeling.
"When they see you coming '
they'll try to run!" Fowler
explains. "It's like an Easter
egg hunt underwater. It's in-
teresting because while
you're doing it, you get to
see a lot of fish, sting rays,
small sharks and other small
shell fish."
Kayaking, canoeing and
bird watching are other ways
people appreciate the natural
wonders of Steinhatchee.
"The river is what attracted
me," Fowler recalls as he
describes his inspiration for
creating the resort. "It's in-
credibly beautiful, natural
and undeveloped." And
Fowler makes every effort to
preserve the area's rustic
surroundings. "We try to
preserve every tree possible.
Instead of running a grid
system for our streets, we've
chosen to run the roads
around the trees."
With an atmosphere as
peaceful as this, you may
find the Landing to be the


ideal place to do as little as
possible. Many will appreci-
ate modem accommodations
such as Jacuzzis and private
screened porches for enjoy-
ing a cool drink while taking
in the simple sights and
sounds of old Florida. But
rest assured, there are other
alluring alternatives, such as
biking, a petting zoo, tennis,
volleyball, shuffleboard,
badminton, basketball and
an expansive playground.
People come to the resort
7or a lot of different reasons.
Fow ler feels he has found
-"*his'niche wittienvironnierntal
groups, as well as ihose \\ ho
desire unique conference fa-
cilities; corporate meetings,
reunions, receptions and es-
pecially weddings. The site
is complete with both indoor
and outdoor facilities, fea-
turing at 2,400 square-foot
conference center that seats
up to 70 people. Additional-
ly, there are a number of
other buildings for smaller
groups, as well as a newly
developed stained-glass
chapel just completed in
September 2003.
The chapel, known as
Dancing Waters,.seats 100
people and has impressive
gothic architecture, vaulted
ceilings with 12-foot stained'
glass windows and outstand-
ing acoustics.
With 29 Victorian and
Cracker-Style cottages emu-
lating a 1920s Northern
Florida village amidst moss-
covered trees and breathtak-
ing sunsets, as well as nu-
merous activities for the en-
tire family to enjoy, Stein-

Fishing
Continued from Page 5C

impatient. But float softly
and you're fishing where the
fish live. What is really neat
is being able to catch great
fish from a make-do jon boat
or a high tech flats fishing
machine. It's your budget,
the fish don't care.
Off shore fishing can be
over-the-top. Don't expect
world record fish. This area
is noted for a quantity of
quality fish not single record
catches. Keeper grouper av-
erage about seven pounds a
piece. A 10 pound grouper is
real good. A 15 to 20 pound
grouper is very good. A
grouper over 20 pounds is ex-
ceptional. Grouper are the
'meat and potato' fish of our
area. I and the, rest of the off-
shore captains spend the ma-
jority of our time trying to
catch a bunch of them.
Grouper keep the props spin-
ning westward
Kingfish run between 10-
30 pounds. Ironically, they
are not targeted even though
they have a lot of 'fight in the
dog'. Having a king bum
line from a flat line or trolled
pole at a speed that heats up
the reel faster than a burner is
exciting -- I don't care if
you're the 'Rain Man.' A
smoker king fires up the


cockpit of a boat and adds a
spike to the day. "I ain't eat-
ing no stinking kingfish" I
hear too much. I'm thinking
'you've never eaten it fresh
off the grill.' Old frozen
kingfish can be poor cat food
but fresh grilled king is fit for
a king. It is like painting,
quality preparation is the key
to success.
Amberjack are a tackle
busting adversary and with-
out a doubt one of the most
entertaining fish to catch.
"Oh, you just use those to
keep the tourist busy, captain.
They're wormy, not fit to
eat." OK, give them to me at
the end of the day. It is true
they can be wormy on the
right hand coast but here in
Steinhatchee they are smaller,
10-35 pounds, and clean.
Hello, it is a different envi-
ronment. It is like saying
everybody is the same? I
hope not. Anyway, it is un-
usual to find a worm in the
fish. Here the flesh is so
good I cook for left-overs so
we can make amberjack salad
the next day. Besides, I
wouldn't care if they were
full of worms, I would still
do catch and release, consid-
ering how much fun they are
to catch. I don't fish for my
stomach. Have you missed a
meal lately? Fishing is fun,


keep it that way (find some
good recipes on our website
too).
If you want cobia, you hunt
them like deer. Cobia is my
favorite fish to catch because
it takes effort to bring one
home. It is a challenge. Of
course there are times when a
cobia will swim up and invite
itself in the cooler, but to be
successful one needs to be
prepared with appropriate
tackle. Apparently, inshore
cobia fishing is becoming
more popular judging by the
increased number of flats
skiffs and bay boats with
sighting towers. The rigs
look highly unusual but are
quite functional for sight fish-
ing cobia on the clear grass
flats.
Thank goodness spring
weather is upon us. The
warm air and water can wash
away the memory of a long
winter. Redfish are more
abundant now than they have
been in a long time. Drifting
around the creek mouths or
shoreline casting live shrimp
or cut mullet under a cork is a
great way to have a red test
your drag system. Gold
spoons and spinner baits
work very well for the artifi-
cial enthusiast.
At the moment, trout are
being best caught in the three


to five foot depths on jigs.
The color of the jig depends
on the color of the water. It-
is best to bring a variety of
colors and switch around un-
til you find the color they
want. If the pinfish aren't
ravenous, a live shrimp under
a cork is a traditional trout
killer. The big mamma trout
are found in the skinny wa-
ters next to the bank. Do
some topwater fishing in the
early morning or late evening
to make a memory.
Offshore, the bait pods
have recently shown up.
That means Spanish macker-
el, kingfish, bluefish lady fish
and other predators are tag-
ging along behind the chuck
wagon. It is a pile of fun
tossing jigs and spoons into
frenzied fish.
As the water warms the
grouper bite will return closer
to shore. Trolling plugs is an
effective way to find good
bottom with hungry fish.
Bottom fishing with live pin-
fish is a ball. I like feeling a
pinfish get nervous on the
line before its demise.
Frozen sardines and herring
are also good bait. It is best
to bring an assortment of
baits offshore-because you're
never quite sure what the
grouper are going to prefer
from day to day. For those


new to the area, the most
popular grouper grounds are
found on a 240 heading 20-
35 miles from Steinhatchee
marker number one.
Anyway, I hope this little
fishing snippet sparked your
interest for a visit. I hope fu-
ture articles will be informa-
tive and useful. Thanks for


taking the time to read. Take
care of yourself and the tackle.
Sincerely
Capt Brian E. Smith, Big

Skincare tips for a beach-ready


body on
Ladies, put away your wallets this
bathing-suit season. Every summer,
many women spend extra money on
beauty treatments to make up for
neglecting their bodies during the winter.
This summer you can undo the damage
with at-home tips and affordable products
that will help shape up your skin just in
time for tennis skirts, tank tops and
weekends at the shore.
o Exfoliate Weeks of dead skin cell
build up causes your skin to become dull,
dry and flaky. Scrub away this excess
skin by using a washcloth or loofah in the
shower with your everyday cleanser.
o Wax Do you avoid waxing because
of the pain that may ensue? Fear not your
bikini wax this beach season. PRE-Kini is
a new product that temporarily numbs
your skin for an ouchless wax-making the
need to be hair-free, pain-free.
o Treat Skin Bruises There's little
way to hide bruises when you're in a
bikini or shorts. Treat these minor
imperfections with Vita K Solution for
Bruises with Arnica, an effective product
that helps heal bruises faster and
minimizes discoloration.
o Drink More Water Wash away
toxins that are clogging your. skin by
downing 10 glasses a day. You'll enjoy
clear skin, more energy and overall better
health.

Mrs. Coffins, Spiritualist
Heater Reader, 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.

Ted McMullen's "I'11 Remember You" Elvis competition


Submitted by
Barbara Watson
The Grande Hall at The
Spirit of the Suwannee Music.
Park was the setting for Ted
McMullen's first "I'll Remem-
ber You" Elvis competition. If
you missed this event, you re-
ally missed a treat. The
Grande Hall was full of Elvis
fans, and the contestants, really
put on a show. There were 11,
adult contestants and two
youth contestants.
The adult category contes-
tants were: Bobby Blakely,
Garyelvis Britt, Charlie Cole,
Jeremy Ewbank, Mark
Gagnon, Damon Hendrix, Ray
Joiner, Jeff La Jess, Alvin
Smith, Matthew Spalding and
Rick Wade. There were five fi-
nalists: fifth place, Rick Wade;
fourth place, Charlie Cole;
third place, Garyelvis Britt;
second place, Matthew Spald-
ing and first place and winner
Damon Hendrix who received
$1,000 in prize money and is
automatically entered into
"Images of the King" world
championship competition in
Memphis, Tenn. in August
2006.


Youth contestants were:
Alex Swindle and Trey Norris.
Swindle, who brought the
house down each time he sang,
was the winner ,in the youth
category. Norris, Hamilton
County's own, is an up and
coming Elvis tribute artist.
There were two special
guests. Ted McMullen's dad,
Bill McMullen, told about be-
ing the person who wrote the
music to Elvis' "Heartbreak
Hotel." He has written many
other songs and music. The
other special guest was Demi
Downing, 8, who charmed the
audience as she belted out tune
after tune of Elvis' songs.
Downing looked very lovely
in her Elvis'jumpsuit.
The master of ceremonies
for the evening was Ted Mc-
Mullen and he did a wonderful
job. Ted and his, manager and
coordinator, Marcie Darrell
Brooks, did a great job pulling
it all together.
A big thank you to all the
Elvis' tribute artists every-
where who. strive to keep the
memory of Elvis alive in our
hearts. "Thank you, thank you
very much."

Green thumb guide to garden preparation


(ARA) Planting a
beautiful garden is a key
element to creating an,
enviable landscape.
Realize, however, that
planning and
maintaining a successful
garden can be
challenging. To help
ensure a successful, easy-
to-maintain garden, it's
important to work from a
detailed plan. This
includes evaluating
everything from the
design of your garden to
how you're going to
control weeds. While
there are no guarantees,
time spent developing an
initial plan of action .
that's well thought-out
will pay off in the end.
Following are some key
areas for consideration in
preparing your garden:

Planning the right design

Evaluate your
landscape, noting where
existing trees, shrubs and'
vines will fall in your
design. Also consider
other physical
characteristics, such as
which areas are shaded
or sunny, locations with
poor drainage, and even-
what angles offer the best
view of your future
garden.
Now is also the time to
consider the amount of
work you're creating for
yourself in the future. For
instance, free-flowing,
curved or rounded beds
are much easier to care
for than square or
rectangular ones. Also,
consider 'the benefits of
designin a larger bed,
versus smaller ones. Not
only are larger beds more
attractive and provide a
better opportunity to
incorporate a wider
variety of plants, but
larger areas are also
easier to water and
fertilize.
Beyond geometry,
other considerations for
your design involve what
to plant and where to
plant it. Here is where
you can also limit future
work. Reduce time spent
pruning by spreading
plants out in your design
rather than crowding
them together. What's
more, consider
incorporating plants with
dense growth patterns --
they look great without
pruning at all.
Another time-
consuming chore is
watering. Plan your
design around native
plants and flowers, or
ones with proven
durability -- these require
less water. For those that
do need more water, plan
to group them together
(preferably near a faucet
or hose). That way you
can concentrate on
watering them without
needing to saturate the
whole bed.

Preparing Your


Evaluation can be done
both by appearance and
by feel. Dark colored soils
are typically high in
organic matter, which is a
good thing. Light colored
or reddish soils are often
sandy or have a high
concentration of clay,
which is not good for
planting. You can also
determine the quality of
your soil by rubbing it
between your fingers.
When moist, sandy soils
feel gritty and falls apart
easily, whereas clay will
feel harsh when dry and
sticky when wet.
Both clay and sandy
soils can be greatly
improved by adding
organic matter. This can
be found around the
home in the form of
fallen leaves or vegetable
compost from your
kitchen. Or, you can
purchase peat moss or
aged manure in bulk
from a landscape supply
store. Lightly dug several
inches into the soil, these
natural substances will be
further broken down by
useful soil organisms
such as bacteria, fungi
and earthworms.
The final step in soil
preparation is a soil test.
This will not only
measure the levels of
nutrients in your soil to
let you know what's
available and what the
soil lacks, but it will also
indicate your soil's pH
level. This is the relative
acidity or alkalinity,
which affects how plants
take up the nutrients they
.- heed t6.thrive. ; ",;
To perform the test,
you can collect soil
samples from six inches
below the surface in
several areas of your
garden and then send
them to your local
Extension Agency or a
soil lab. Or, you can
purchase a do-it-yourself
kit from a garden center
or nursery. .
With a pH of 7 being
neutral, those soils with a
pH lower than 7 are
acidic, while soils above 7
are alkaline. Most plants
grow well within a pH
range of 5.0 to 6.5. If your
pH is too low, you can
add dolomitic limestone
to raise it. If the pH is too


high, you can add fine
sulfur to lower it.

Eliminating Weeds

Now it's time to get
your hands dirty and rid
your soil of those
menacing weeds that can
ruin your well-planned
garden. First, thoroughly
remove all of the existing
weeds and grass by
hand. Do not use a
rototiller or chop up the
turf by hand or machine.
That's one way of
guaranteeing those
,weeds will return.
Understand that the roots
and runners of perennial
weeds have the ability to
regenerate a new plant
from nearly each and

fragments of'a root. You
could end up with more
weeds than before you
started. Manual removal
may seem laborious and
time consuming, but
hopefully it will be the
last time you have to do
it.
With all the existing
weeds removed, take
measures to prevent the
arrival of new ones.
Apply a pre-emergent
herbicide like Preen early
in the season to your soil
surface. Preen is
formulated to actually
prevent the growth of
weeds that would
ultimately compete with
your plants for survival.
However, it is specially
formulated to not effect
the health of established
plant'. And. since it
w-on't mig ate in the soil
it can ev en be applied on
sloping areas without
fear of leaching or run-off
When it rains.
To further save time,
you can apply a
combination pre-,
emergent and fertilizer,
like Preen 'n Green.
Endorsed by The
American Rose Society,
this product not only
eliminates the need to
ever pull another weed,
but its balanced 9-17-9
fertilizer also encourages
strong root development
and improved vigor. One
application prevents
weeds for up to three
months.

Flowerbed's Soil
To thrive, roots need
well-prepared soil.
Therefore, prior to
planting, it's necessary to
prepare the soil,
especially if a flowerbed
has never been in that
location before. The first
step is to evaluate the
soil.

without any weeds to

nutrients and moisture,

Make the most of
the light

Two c6irmoni problems
in gardens are areas with
too much sun and areas
with too much shade.
One way to have colorful
flowers every year in
fully sunny spots is to
plant perennials. They
don't flower as long as
annuals, but by selecting
varieties with different
flowering periods you
can have blooms
throughout the growing
season. Some
combinations could
include cornflower, iris
and primrose.
In areas lacking light,
there are also perennials
that have adapted to
shaded sights. They're
able to perform

Shorkie.

The Humane Soci-
ety of the United
States warns con-
sumers: "Hybrid"
dogs can have just
as many problems
as purebreds

The names and faces may
be irresistible, but the trendi-
est dogs hybrid or "design-
er" dogs like Puggles (Pugs
and Beagles) and Labradoo-
dles (Labradors and Poodles)
- are far from perfect.
Those who profit from
these newly designed dogs
tout that, by breeding two
different purebred dogs, they
create a new breed that pos-
sesses all of the positives but
not any of the challenges
from each breed. That
promise, along with high
price tags and celebrities tot-
ing their Shorkies and Pug-
gles around. on the pages of
gossip magazines, has creat-
ed a trend guaranteed to re-
sult in more homeless dogs,
says The Humane Society of
the United States (HSUS).
The hybrid fascination is
similar to the Hollywood dog
hype. When purebred dogs
are in movies such as 101
Dalmatians or Eight Below,
everyone wants one. The re-
sult: within 12 months of a
fad, relinquishment of that
breed to shelters and rescue
groups increases according to
The HSUS. People want to
be "in style" and are attracted
to how a dog looks in the me-
dia. They often do not con-
sider the breed's specific
needs or personality which is
not portrayed in the media.
Stephanie Shain, leading
dog expert and director of
outreach for companion ani-
mals for The HSUS explains,
"We want consumers to un-
derstand that so-called "hy-
brid" puppies are not protect,
ed from genetic diseases.
They are just as likely to
have the same problems that
other puppies have who come
from large-scale, high-vol-
ume breeding, especially
since the demand is massive
and puppy mills are respond-
ing by pumping out the hy-
brid-du-jour as quickly as
possible."
Puppy mills are horrid
breeding facilities that pro-
duce purebred and mixed-
breed or "hybrid" puppies in
large numbers and sell them
to pet stores, or directly to
consumers through the Inter-
net or newspaper ads, dis-
guised as reputable breeders.
"Factory breeding like this
increases the chances of a
puppy having genetic, physi-
cal and emotional problems
which may not be apparent at
first," Shain says.
She adds, "We are con-
cerned that people are caught
up in the trend and not doing
research on the needs and
personalities of the breed.
History is proof that when
people purchase dogs based
on looks alone, the animal ul-
timately ends up being given
away to a shelter, adding to
the over 4 million homeless
dogs already in shelters. If
you have done your research
and have your heart set on a
particular breed, one of four
dogs in shelters is a purebred
some even hybrids."
The HSUS encourages
people to consider the fol-
lowing before buying a "hy-
brid" dog:
There are no perfect dogs
and hybrids are not protected
from diseases.
There is no such thing as


a hypoallergenic dog. Aller-
gies are from dander, not fur.
Dogs with hair, not fur, can
lessen shedding but not elim-
inate it completely, and are
no guarantee of keeping al-
lergies at bay.
Do not purchase a hybrid
- or any dog from a pet
store where the majority of
dogs are from puppy mills
and are therefore more likely
to become ill.


..Designer
Be-sure you get the dog
from a reputable breeder,
someone who insists that
they meet you and that you
see first-hand where the dog
and its mother come from.
A good breeder will pro-
vide paperwork detailing ge-
netic testing which has been
done to screen for health
problems for which the breed
is predisposed.
Do research before buy-


dogs are no guarantee of a perfect dog


ing a puppy so you know
about the needs of the breed.
You are making a commit-
ment to bring this dog into
your life for 15 years. You
want to be sure he or she is
the right fit for your lifestyle.
.* Before buying a dog,
take visit your local animal
shelter. One of four shelter
dogs is a purebred, and the'
rest are hybrids in their own
right mixes of two or more


breeds. If you want a true
"one-in-a-million" dog, you
will find one at a shelter and
you will save hundreds to
thousands of dollars and save
a life.
