Every vote really does count!


Susan K. Lamb


The tabulations are all
done in the Live Oak Dis-
trict 1 City Council race "
held May 2, the votes have : -"
been hand and machine
counted multiple times and
the winner is.....John Hale
by one vote. John Hale, new
What was expected to be a Live Oak District 1
quick and easy tabulation of City Councilman
votes in the city election
turned into a near midnight stay for elections
workers and candidates. Incumbent District 1
Councilman John Yulee and his challenger, Hale,
waited out the hours of checking the vote count-
ing machine and re-adding the tabulations. Dur-
ing these hours it was learned one voter had vot-
ed without proper identification (a provisional
vote) so that voters' signature had to be looked at
by the canvassing board made up of Suwannee
County Supervisor of Elections Glerida
Williams, Live Oak City Council President Don


Boyette and City Councilmen Ken Duce and
Bennie Thomas. They all agreed the voter was
the person he said-he was and approved the vote,
which was for Yulee. This brought the race to
dead even based on final machine numbers for
the day at 128 votes to 128 votes for Hale and
Yulee.
Williams said after running the ballots through
twice, both times the numbers came out 128 for
Hale arind 127 for Yulee. It was at this point she
: remembered that earlier that day at Hale Park
* (recreation center) one machine had stalled and
she went over and replaced it. In the machine,
however, she found a crumpled ballot and think-
ing it hadn't counted when it went through the
original machine, so she ran it through the ne%%
machine. This one ballot, she said was counted
twice, giving the tie vote. Once the\ realized
this, it became clear that Hale was the winner,
she said. Williams said the numbers at the rec
center from the second machine tabulation
showed the tie, but when those ballots were run
through the machine at Williams' office that
evening during the recount w ith the canvassing

down to pick up a cigarette
lighter before hitting the bus.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Dear Editor:
The success of hurricane recovery is up to
you, prepare now for the safety of your family.
Last year, our nation experienced one of the
most destructive hurricane seasons ever as hur-
ricanes ripped through the Gulf Coast states;
forcing the evacuation of millions, and leaving
thousands without power, -many without
homes, and causing billions upon billions of
dollars in damage. Florida was no exception. In
fact, the effect of the 2005 storms was greatly
'magnified as Floridians still work to recover
from the devastation of the 2004 hurricane sea-
son.
The serious level of destruction from the 2004,
and 2005 storms is a clear signal for all' of us to
take action to prepare for the quickly approach-
ing 2006 hurricane season. No matter where in
this great state you may reside-be it the Keys,
the Panhandle, the First Coast or Central Flori-
da-all those who live, work and play in the Sun-
shine State must understand that each one of us
has a stake in our respective communities and
must assume our individual responsibility to..,
prepare for disaster. ,,' .
I urge' everyone to take the initiative now. .,\
Prepare yourself and your family for the next
hurricane. It could be just around the corner.
Practice the three steps of disaster prepared-
ness-make a plan, make a kit and get informed.
Make an emergency plan so you know exact-,
ly what steps to, take if you need to evacuate:
where to go, what to do with pets and how to
meet up with family members if you need to
leave quickly. Every home should have adisas-
ter supply kit with, a battery-powered radio,
new batteries, enough food and water to supply
your family for 72 hours, and any necessary
medications. (The Web sites wwvw.Ready.gov
and www.FloridaDisaster.org are wonderful;
sources of information for disaster planning
and preparing your supply kit.)
It is also vital to stay informed during a
storm. Listen to the radio or TV newscasts be-
fore and during an evacuation and follow re-
-ports on the weather conditions in your area. In
the coming weeks, look for further information
and reminders regarding all aspects of hurri-
cane and disaster preparedness from FEMA,
state and local disaster officials.
As individuals do their part to prepare for the
upcoming hurricane season, FEMA is also do-
ing its part by hitting the Florida roads. Disas-
ter recovery program managers from FEMA's
Long-term Recovery Office in Florida are cur-
rently crisscrossing the state, meetingwith local
officials in all 67 Florida counties, answering
questions and strengthening the relationships
that will facilitate a speedier recovery from fu-
ture disasters in Florida.
I cannot overemphasize the incredible impor-
tance of preparing now. The precautions you
take today may save your life tomorrow. Care-
ful preparation can also possibly save the lives
of others, such as first responders. Please take
time to prepare yourself and your family today.
It is' your'civic duty and responsibility as a res-
ident of the great state of Florida.

and discuss any questions about it with you.,


SAn old saying declares
that "it doesn't -matter
how high you climb, but
d 'how well you bounce. '
Funny how old sayings
can come to you when
you are in vulnerable sit-
wain Walden. nations. And there I was
on top ,off a utility barn
that my son and I are building, and this'
old saying just came to, me. right out of
'the clouds.
Of course it's sort of an abstract analo-
gy, that can be adjoined to, a lot of situa-
tions, but suddenly it combined with the
weakness in my knees for a practical and
literal application.
When I was much younger, climbing
around on tall stuff did not bother me so
much. I think in those days we tend to'
consider ourselves invincible and inde-
structible. Through the years wisdom
creeps in,. and we may be truly amazed
that we escaped some earlier adventures
with only a few scrapes and bruises.
I recall that night at Six Flags over
Georgia when, as .a student at Georgia
State University, I went: out to the amuse-
ment park with a' group of. friends. We
were riding this thing that resembled a
double Ferris wheel except that the little
compartments we sat in 'turned around
and upside down while the two big
wheels were going end over end. It was-
n't the kind of thing you ride after a cou-
ple of chili dogs from the Varsity.
Two people were put in each compart-
ment. I was next to the door. And as we
reached the very top of the ride, the door
came open while we were upside down.
Of course I was strapped in, and I had a
death grip on the bar that came down
and locked across our laps. It definitely
was not a good feeling being that high
up, upside down and looking, down on
the world from 100 feet. There are much
better ways to gain a new perspective on
humanity and cotton candy. But I have
learned that there are some times when
events happen that you just put aside
your fears and take care of the business
at hand. This was one of those times.


OPINION


One nation,
Immigration reform should.
including provision making
English official language

CNHI News Service

Lost in the continuing debate over im-
migration.law has been the need to pro-
mote the concept of assimilation over
loyalty to one's country of origin.
The strength of this country lies in the
fact that almost since the first settlers
came from England in the early 17th
century, those arriving on these shores
considered themselves Americans first
and foremost. And while it's fine to cel-
ebrate some of the traditions brought
over from "the old country," wherever
that happens,'to be, up until recently it
was taken for granted that those who
came here would eventually adopt the
guiding principles, and common lan-
guage, of the United States'.
That common language is English, and
we find it hard to understand why there
has been little talk amidst all the dis-
cussion of protecting our borders and
dealing with the millions here illegally,


one language
of making it our official .language. Cer-
tainly a knowledge of English is essen-
tial to fending for oneself in today's
economy, which 'is one of the criteria
even those champions of amnesty and
guest worker programs would set for
undocumented workers interested in
remaining here.
Acceptance' of American concepts of
justice and democracy has always been
a requirement for those seeking citizen-
ship. So should acceptance of the lan-
guage of America.
Allowing racial, ethnic, religious or
linguistic differences to take prece-
dence over the concept of America as
one nation, is a recipe for disaster I as
the citizens of Iraq, the former' Yu-
goslavia or even Canada, to name just a
few countries twisted asunder by divid-
ed loyalties, can well attest.

The operator of this machine saw what
had happened and started easing us
down, all the time yelling that we be
calm and that we would 'be all right.
When he got us down to the loading plat-
form, he appeared more shaken than we
were. I'm not sure if he was afraid of a.
lawsuit or that we might actually suffer
some kind of trauma. Or that he would,
have to clean up the mess.
I assured him that everything was okay.
I told him the only way I could have fall-
en out of that bucket was for all the rivets
and bolts on the inside to have come lose.
I had a grip on that lock bar that would
have rivaled a congressman's clinch on a
lobbyist's donations.
Now when I.say that we tend to feel in-
destructible in our youth, I do not mean
.that I felt I was wearing a cape that night.
NO sirree Bob. I was in touch with my
mortality the whole time. Besides, I
learned many years ago not to, jump out
of the barn window-with a towel around
my neck. The only good use of the towel
was to wipe the dirt and blood off yoti
face after the crash.
Recently when I had to climb on top of
a grain bin down at the homeplace to se-
cure a hatch that a storm had blown
open, I thought of that night out at Six
Flags. In fact, I think of that event even
when I sweep pine straw off the
roof. These are riot true flashbacks be-
cause I don't wake up in the middle of
-the night in a cold sweat about them. I
only do that when I'm being chased
through the oak branches by tree hogs.
It's just a point of reference in my life, I
guess. And as I get older, I am more
aware of Newton's Law of Gravity. I
think we all are.
I also am reminded now that when you
put a steep, pitch on a roof, someone has
got to nail the tin to the lathe. It's good to
have an agile son on those days, and it's
also good that his mom is away on a
church retreat with her Sunday School
class.

co,,corn, hogs, cane and peanuts. Gamble's
granddaddy was also big in the turpentine busi-
ness. Currently, they raise hay and cattle.
Still on the original home site is a covered
cane grinding barn, smoke house and syrup
house with a place for washing clothes be-
tween them, a corn crib and a cotton house.
The original house was still standing until
three years ago when Steve and Susan Wood
had to tear it down to build a new house.
Susan Wood is Gamble's daughter. She is
the one who gathered the paperwork and ap-
plied for Century Pioneer Farmnn status; To be
recognized in this program, families must re-
tain ownership of their farms for at least 100


years.
Being a Suwannee County family for as long
as they have, the Gambles are related to lots of
county families. Granddaddy Ballentine's rela-
tives can claim kinship with Boatrights,
Marables, Pournelles and McCullers.
Gamble said she can remember when Lurav-
ille was a much bigger town. She remembers
the train stopping there, three drug stores, a
dentist, a hotel, saw mill and phosphate mine.
The Wood's son William, only six, is already
an avid farm enthusiast. His parents can't wait
until he's old enough to join the 4-H Club. His
bedroom is decorated with John Deere bedding
and he loves tractors. It seems safe to say this
Century Pioneer Farm will stay in the family
for many more years.

Yancey HMeston Ballentine Annie Enlalla McLeod
...born March 8, 1853 ...later a Ballentine


100th Anniversary

An outstanding young man, exceptionally fine
By the name of Yancey Harleston Ballentine.
He was born March 8, 1853,
When all men were born free.
A Young Lady so very lovely and proud
By the name of Annie Eulalia McLeod.
She was born April 8, 1856
When color and race did not mix.
In covered wagons, they came from far away,
And settled in the sunshine state of Florida.
He, from Old Anderson District South Carolina came.
Not in search of wealth and fame
But a quite restful and peaceful home,
From which he felt he would never roam.
She, from Eufalia, Alabama, came,
Never dreamed of soon changing her name.
When they met, they fell deeply in love.
Surely! The angels guided from above.
October 26, 1873, she became his bride.
She was his whole heart, joy, and pride.
Living at same home for forty-three years
Peaceful and happily from doubts and fears.
To this union, nine children were born.
Healthy and strong, all lived to be grown.
One by one they gradually left home,
Married and reared families of their own.
A daughter owns the old home place
Which. holds sacred memories only death can erase.
"{Ve',daughters still living, the eldest 93
ikdh possesses a fifth generation family tree.

American
Education Services
to pay default
fee on all
student loans
Will save students more
than $34 million
American Education Services
(AES) announced recently that it
will subsidize, on behalf of all
borrowers, the mandatory federal
default fee, at least through June
30, 2007, on all Stafford, Parent
PLUS and Graduate PLUS
loans.
AES has not charged. this one-
percent fee (formerly known as
the guaranty fee or insurance pre-
mium) since 1996 when it adopt-
ed -its industry-leading Zero
Guaranty Fee Policy, which ap-
plies to every student loan they
guarantee. The Zero Guaranty
Fee Policy has saved student
loan borrowers nearly $350 mil-
lion in up-front costs.
"Stafford student loans, Parent
PLUS loans and Graduate PLUS
loans are an affordable funding
option after a borrower has ex-
hausted all eligibility for grant or
scholarship aid," saidAES Presi-
dent and CEO Dick Willey.."By
paying the federal default fee we
are making it even more afford-.
able, saving students up-front
costs and helping them, reduce
their debt burden."
The Higher Education Recon-
ciliation Act of 2005 requires
guarantors to deposit one percent
of the loan'amount to cover po-
tential costs associated with in-,
suring federally guaranteed stu-
dent loans. AES has consistently
covered these costs to better as-
sist students and their families in
affording their higher education.
By subsidizing the federal de-
fault fee, AES estimates it will
save students during the 2006-07
academic year inexcess of $34
million that can immediately be
used to help pay for their educa-
tional expenses. These savings
..ae in1.addition to many other
imone -saving, features of AES'
low-cost student loans.

when Williams ran it through.
Williams said the law sets
certain standards for deter-

board can make a determina-
tion regarding whether to
count that vote and those
laws were observed in this

"Traditional music has so
much power because it is
written from the heart and not
for profit," Holt told a writer
for Southern Living magazine
in 2000. "It has been hand-
rubbed by many generations
and it's distilled into these in-
credible little nuggets."
Holt received Grammy
Awards in 2002 as artist and
producer for recordings made
with Doc Watson and in 1997
for a recording of stories
about wildlife. He has per-
formed and recorded with
some of the best-known tradi-
tional musicians in the coun-
try, including Doc Watson,
Grandpa Jones, Bill.Monroe,
Earl Scruggs, Roy Acuff and
Chet Atkins. Holt has had nu-
merous performances at The
Grand Ole Opry and had a
brief role in the film, "0

The Folk Festival cele-
brates the cultural traditions'
of all Floridians, from Semi-
noles and cowboys to the
newest residents from around
the globe. Food, crafts, mu-
sic, dance and stories reflect
the diversity of communities
across the state and offer visi-
tors the opportunity to partic-
ipate in a variety of work-
shops. The Folk Festival is
administered under the Flori-

pired term in District 1, but
Yulee beat him during the
election that year-and then
beat him four years ago. This
time it wasn't to be.
Both men took time off
from work to campaign in the
waning days of the election
and the closeness of the votes
shows they campaigned hard.
Yulee, who works with the


US Postal Service in Lake,
City, will serve until July 11
when Hale will be sworn in
for a four-year term. Hale, a
former police officer, works
with the Suwannee County
Sheriff's Office.
The Live Oak City Council
will then have two new cofin-
cilmen Hale and District 4
Councilman Mark Stewart


who ran without opposition
and never had to, face the vot-
ers for approval. Stewart,
who is employed with the US
Postal Service, will replace
16-year Councilman George,
Blake who is retiring.
Live Oak Mayor Sonny,
Nobles defeated his only
challenger, Marion Ivey, to
return for four more years.

Disappointing

season for NFCC

baseball team
By Gabe Thompson

The season ended disap-
pointingly for the Sentinels'
baseball team with a 13-30
record. Coach Givens stated,.
"Some of the recruited players
didn't develop as we hoped
they would have."
The coach said they might
have some recruiting prob-
lems, and some problems with
developing new recruits.
Givens is now going to re-
evaluate their recruiting and
development program. Re-
cruiting isa key issue due to
the limited amount of scholar-
ships that are given out each
year, and with the amount of
players leaving to play at oth-
er schools.
NFCC played poorly in con-
ference play this year, but did

2005 Boating accident





statistical report avai able


Florida saw boating
deaths rose in 2005 to
the highest number re-
ported in 10 years.
The majority of the in-
crease was victims
falling overboard, ac-
cording to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission's
(FWC) newly released
2005 Boating Accident
Statistical Report.
Eighty people lost
their lives in 69 inci-
dents last year, a 15 per-
cent increase from 2004.
"We are very con-
cerned about the up-
ward trend in boating
fatalities," said FWC
Capt. Richard Moore,
Florida's boating law
administrator. "Espe-
cially given the fact the
vast majority of these
are easily preventable.-
"Paying attention to
what's going on around
your boat is very impor-
tant, since many acci-
dents are the result of a
collision with another
vessel or fixed object."
In 2005, falls over-
board increased 53 per-
cent over the previous
year, resulting in 29 in-
cidents and 30 victims.
Of those victims, 79 per-
cent of fatal falls over-
board involved an open
motorboat or some other
small, unstable craft.
Additionally, 69 per-
cent of fatal falls over-
board occurred on calm,

have some bright spots.
The team had some victo-
iys over very good teams.
The team beat FFCJ, UF
and had a win over Lake
City, then first in the
country.
A few players had im-
pressive seasons. Catcher
Mike Payne is on the All-
Conference first team, and
outfielder Trent Taylor is
on the All-Conference sec-
ond team.
"Both players had solid
years, and they both have
Division 1 scholarships,"
said Givens. Payne is from
Dunnellon, and he's going
to accept a scholarship
from the University of
New Orleans. Taylor, from
Fitzgerald, Ga. has signed
a scholarship to Mercer
University.
SIn 2004 the team fin-
ished four games out of
first place. Givens said,
"We need to make some
changes to get back on the
right track." Givens
stated, "I'm sure it's going
to be better with the new
recruiting class we have
and, I'm very confident we
will return to being a real


prominent team in the'
Conference."
With these new changes
being instituted by Givens,
hopefully the team can get
everything in order before
the stait of next season.


inland waters; 93 per-
- cent of the victims
drowned (63 percent of
those reportedly could
swim); none of the
drowning victims were
wearing or using a life
jacket, and 53 percent
were at least 51 years
old.
"As for the deaths,"
Moore said, "the simple
act of wearing a life
jacket is your best insur-
ance on the water. Our
stats show that it's most-
ly swimmers who drown
when they unexpectedly
end up in the water."
Sandy Morone and
Gay Kite of Ocala out-
lived their sons, who
drowned in a boating ac-
cident Dec. 19, 2004 on
Half Moon Lake in the
Ocala National Forest.
Their sons, Allan
Michael !Morone, 22, and
John Edward Ray, 23,
failed, to wear life vests.
Their bodies were not
recovered for more than
a week.
"You 'don't think it
will happen to you,"
Morone said. "You think
it will happen to some-
one. else. I'm living, but
I'm not living the same
way."
Kite agrees with Mo-
rone on the importance
of wearing a life vest.
"I do know, as a moth-
er who has lost her son,
these accidents can be
prevented," she said.

she wished Fortner the

Wood said. "But the good
thing is I get her for one

does not include all ac-
tions taken by the Division
of Law Enforcement.

NORTH CENTRAL

COLUMBIA COUNTY
April 23, Officer Todd
Hoyle and Investigator
Mike Pridgen interviewed
three subjects regarding a
trespass complaint. A
landowner caught the
subjects trespassing on his
property on Saturday in
Columbia County. The
landowner was unable to
identify them at the time.


Pridgen and Hoyle were
able to locate and identify
the trespassers from infor-
mation provided by the
landowner. Two of the
subjects lived in the area
of the property. When
Pridgen and Hoyle ap-
proached the suspects for
an interview, they stated,
"We did it." The suspects
were issued citations for
trespass and one warning
for not having a turkey
stamp.

MADISON COUNTY
April 22, Officer Clay
Huff cited two subjects for
attempting to take turkey
-over bait. Huff watched
and listened to the sub-
jects attempt to call a


turkey to their ground
blind. Their blind was
within 45 yards of a
broadcast feeder filled
with cracked corn.

SUWANNEE COUNTY
Officer Dwain Mobley
received information re-
garding, two individuals
who killed a deer recently
in Suwannee County. The
suspects were located and
interviewed. Their state-

proached a hunter in a
blind located within 40
yards of an active broad-
cast corn feeder. As Bailey
was checking the subject's
license, he questioned the
subject as to what he was
hunting. The subject stat-
ed he was hunting turkey.
Additional questioning
showed the subject was
aware of the baiting re-
strictions on turkey. The


subject was cited for at-
tempting to take turkey
over bait.


TAYLOR COUNTY

numerous artificial reefs
damaged from this past
hurricane season. The
committee is working on
securing F\\C grants to
replenish several of their


permitted artificial .reef
sites.

Cooper attended a meet-
ing of Taylor County Ad-
visory Committees.
Cooper is an appointed
member of the Taylor

Florida land boom:



new UF survey

foresters.com.
Demand for land by de-
velopers, investors and
.speculators pushed the
value 'of agricultural land
to record levels in all re-
gions of the state during.
the past year, according to
a new University of.Florida
(UF) survey..,
Prices of agricultural
land increased by 50 per-
cenit to 88 percent across.
the state, and most of the
farmland..is not being pur-
chased for agricultural
purposes, said John
Reynolds, a professor with
UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences
(IFAS), who conducts the
annual Florida Agricultur-
al Land Value Survey.
"We've seen a sharp run-
up; in farmland prices over
the past few years, and
now we're beginning to see
ani increase in land specu-
lation by out-of-town buy-
ers, developers and foreign
investors. And there's also
a strong demand for rural
homesites," he said.
"When you consider the
volatility of the stock mar-
ket, coupled with rising in-
terest rates, land is a very
attractive investment -
some people buy and flip
property for quick gain."
Reynolds' 2005 survey,
which measures changes
over the past year, divides
the state into five regions:
south, southeast, central,
northeast and northwest.
Because of the impact ur-
banization has on agricul-
tural land values, the data
for the southeast region,
including Miami-Dade,.


Brow ard and Palm Beach
counties, are confined to
transition land values.
He said the survey indi-
cates that the average val-
ue of agricultural land
ranges from about $2,700
per acre for unimproved
pasture and farm woods in
Northwest Florida to al-
most $10,000 per acre for
orange groves in Central
and South Florida.
The value of grapefruit
grovess increased 88 per-
cent in the south region of
the state and 81 percent in
the central region, largely
because of crop loss from
hurricanes, he said. The
value of orange groves in-
creased 52 percent to 53
percent in the central and
south regions.
The average, value of or-
ange groves was $9,956 per
acre in the south region -
about $150 per acre higher
than in the central region.
The estimated value qof
grapefruit groves was
$9,897 per acre in the south
region about $1,705 per
acre higher than in the cen-
tral region. The ,value of
land with 5- to 7-year-old
citrus plantings was $8,944
per acre in the south region
$83 per acre higher than
in the central region.
In all regions of the state,
the value of other types of
cropland also increased by
as much as 85 percent, and
the value of pastureland
increased by as much as 87
percent.
In the south region, the
value for cropland and
pastureland increased
from 66 percent to 81 per-
cent, respectively,
Reynolds said. The largest
increases were in the Indi-
an River area, Okeechobee


County and the Gulf Coast
counties. Cropland and
pastureland in other re-
gions also posted big in-
creases: 78 percent to 82
percent in the central re-
gion; 69 percent to 85 per-
cent in the northwest re-
gion, and 69 percent to 87
percent in the northeast re-
gion."
The value of irrigated
cropland increased by\ 67
percent in the south region.
85 percent in the northeast
region of the state and 83
percent in the northwest
region. The value of irri-
gated cropland was $6.509
per acre in the south re-
gion, $6;356 per acre in the
northeast region and
$4,012 per acre in 'the
northwest region.
The value of nonirrigat-
ed cropland increased 69
percent in the northeast
and northwest regions. The
value of nonirrigated crop-
land was $4,490 per acre in
the northeast region and
$3,332 in the northwest re-
gion.
The value of pastureland
increased about 81 percent
in the south region and 78
percent to 82 percent in the
central region. The value of
improved pasture in-
creased 85 percent to 87
percent in the northern re-
gions. The value of unim-
proved pasture increased
76 percent in the northeast
and 82 percent in the
northwest.
The value of improved
pasture ranged from $3,337
per acre in the northwest
region to $6,426 per acre in
the central region. The val-
ue unimproved pasture
ranged 'from $2,645 per
acre in the northwest re-
gion to $4,715 per acre in

the south region.
The value of farm woods
increased 81 percent in the
northeast region and 84
percent, in the northwest
region. The lowest agricul-
tural land values were in
the northwest region, rang-
"ing from $2,645 per acre for
unimproved pasture to
$4,012 per acre for irrigated
cropland.
The survey also mea-
sures the Value of 'transi-
tion land acreage being
converted or likely to be
converted to nonagricul-
tural sites for homes, sub-
divisions and commercial
uses. Counties were divid-
ed into metropolitan and
non-metropolitan counties,
and transition land values
were estimated for each re-
gion.
The value of transition
land within five miles of a
major town in metropoli-
tan counties increased


from 31 percent to 120 per-,
cent from 2004 to 2005,
Reynolds said.
Within five miles of a
major town in metro coun-
ties, the value of transition
land ranged from $18,423
per acre to $46,481 per
acre. The value of .transi-.
tion land more than five
miles from a major town in
metro counties ranged
from $10,758 per acre to
$23,575 per acre, except in
the southeast region where
transition land values were
$66,667 per acre.
In non-metropolitan
counties, the value of tran-
sition land within five.
miles of a major town
ranged from $6,167 per
acre to $17,143 per acre.
Transition land values
. more than five miles from
a major town in non-metro
counties ranged from
$5,333 to $10,600 per acre.

were also asked if they ex-
pect, agricultural land val-
ues to be higher, lower or
remain unchanged during
the next 12 months. Eighty-
two percent in northern ar-
eas and 88 percent in
southern areas expect agri-
cultural land values to in-
crease during the next
year. The expected increas-
es varied by region and
ranged from 14 percent to
25 percent.
However, Reynolds also
said that participants
should not. expect large
percentage increases in
land values of the past year
to continue. "The market
can not sustain large dou-
ble-digit increases for any
extended period of time,"
he said.
The UF Food and Re-
source Economics Depart-
ment survey, which
Reynolds started -in 1985,
was compiled from infor-
mation provided by 185 re-
spondents from around the
state. They included prop-
erty appraisers, farm
lenders, real estate brokers,
farm managers, land in-
vestors, federal farm-assis-
tance and conservation
staff, UF county extension
agents, and others who de-
velop and maintain infor-
mation about rural land
values.

Camp Weed dedicates new youth pavilion


By Janet Schrader
Special to the News
The Right Rev. Samuel John-
son presided at the dedication
ceremonies held at Camp Weed
for the Snell-McCarty Youth
Pavilion. Bishop Johnson
knocked on the door of the
pavilion and blessed the thresh-
old before opening the doors to
the new facility.
The proceedings included a
parade procession by members
of Episcopalian churches all
over North Florida. Each mem-
ber carried a small bell tied with
a purple ribbon as they sang
and circled the building. After
the blessing of the threshold, a
service was conducted inside
the new building.


Bob Snell and Bamum Mc-
Carty are both retired clergy.
According to Executive Direc-
tor of Camp Weed Joe Cham-
berlain, the two men whom the
building is named after attend-
ed Camp Weed back in the 40s.
At that time the bishop told the
two boys they should consider
becoming ordained ministers.
They both did and are now re-
tired.
As the service began, Bishop
Johnson accepted gifts for the
pavilion on behalf of the Epis-
copal Diocese of Florida.
Chamberlain presented the
bishop with the keys to the
pavilion. Diocesan youth pre-
sented the bishop with a bible
and a Book of Common Prayer.


Camp Weed youth director Paul
Van Brunt presented the bishop
with a schedule of events, camp
sessions and youth retreats that
will take place over the upcom-
ing year. Diocesan youth pre-
sented the bishop with a basket-
ball and a Frisbee inviting hm0
to come and join the youth of
the church in fellowship and
play. Finally, Snell and McCar-
ty presented the bishop with a
book of memories dedicated to
those who went before them
and know Camp Weed as a spe-
cial blessing in their lives.
The event finished off with a
gala barbecue featuring two
roasted suckling, pigs and lots
of barbecued chicken and fix-
ings.

The early Christian


meal -
On Good Friday, children
from the Live Oak Church of
God reenacted the hours fol-
lowing the crucifixion of Jesus
through drama and music.
The setting was at the home
of Joseph of Arimathea and
each cast member played the
part of an early Christian,
gathering with other dinner
guests for a meal after the
death of Jesus.
That evening personal testi-
monies about Jesus were giv-
en by Jesus' disciples, Andrew


a dinner drama


and Thomas (played by Erik
Swart and James Stevenson),
Mary Magdelene (Kayla Wat-
son), a Roman Centurian (Dy-
lan Watson), a visitor in
Jerusalem for the Passover
Feast (Emalie Stevenson), a
servant girl at the Last Supper
(Emily Watson), and a servant
girl in the house of Pilate
(Tineke Swart).
Special singing was also
given by Emily Watson,
Marissa Williams, Emalie
Stevenson, Erik Swart, Tineke


Swart, Danielle Wible, Shayla
Weaver and Felisha Williams.
Special guest, Yasmin Perez
played "Jesu, Joy of Man's
Desiring" on her violin.
Other speaking parts were
performed by Kristitle Smith
and Brooke Watson.
Before the Good Friday din-
ner drama, the children trav-
eled to Suwannee Healthcare
and Rehabilitation Center and
Surrey Place Care Center on
Palm Sunday to give a special
performance for the residents.

Our graduates and the bright promise of the future


Derek Maul
Derek Maul,
derekmaul@gmail.conm
Sunbelt Newspapers


Each year at about this time
my church sponsors a dinner
for those of our youth who are
graduating from high school.
It is a catered, formal affair
where we all dress up and
pretend to be sophisticated.
We start with fancy punch
and elaborate hors d'oeuvres
and practice up on our min-
gling.
The wait staff comprises
sophomores and juniors
dressed in crisp white b1it-


toned shirts. They give every-
one "the royal treatment,"
knowing it will be their turn
soon enough. The reception
room is always transformed
with tablecloths, mood light-
ing, decorations and banners.
The seniors not only dress
up, but they actually sit with
their parents. Then the guest
list is rounded out with youth
advisors, church-school teach-
ers, pastors and their spouses.
This year, by virtue of the


same demographic anomalies
that flooded our church with
babies, there were just two
graduates, Traci and Jessie. As
always, however, the sense of
camaraderie was extraordi-
nary, the food wonderful, the
conversation scintillating, and
the stories memorable.
The genius of the evening,
and the reason I am sharing
with you today, is bound in
the tradition of encourage-
ment. Before the evening


winds down each parent
takes a few minutes to talk
about their child and to reflect,
on what has brought them to
this place.
Then the floor is opened up,
and everyone has the oppor-
tunity to say a few sentences,
remembering an achievement
or looking forward to the fu-
ture.
Here's my point. Contrary
to so much we hear and read,
these bright and articulate


young people have been
thoughtfully instructed, intel-
lectually challenged and well-
prepared for the future while
attending our public high-
schools.
Bored? I don't think so.
Dumbed-down curricula? It's
a lot harder than when we
were kids. People who believe
public schools fail to provide
appropriate stimulation must

be unaware of subjects such
as AP chemistry, honors Eng-
lish composition, or some of
the calculus and statistics
passes available.
During dinner Trad told
me how much she enjoyed
reading Dostoevsky's "Crime
and Punishment," and Jessie
talked about Steinbeck's
"Grapes of Wrath." Trad's sis-
ter is studying Latin in college
but she was already well-


versed in the subject when she
graduated from high school
in Hillsborough County.
The point of a great educa-
tion is to provide interested
children and parents the re-
sources necessary to achieve
that end. The key variable is
the will of the family. There's
not a high school in the state
capable of forcing an educa-
tion when neither the child
nor the parents are willing to
step up and take responsibili-
ty.


So, one by one, parents and
friends shared their hearts in
testimony to the grace and the
determination exhibited by
Traci and Jessie over the
years. Two beautiful and ex-
ceptional young ladies ready
to leave home and make their
mark on the world.
Here is the hope vested in
such an evening. This August,
tens of thousands of children
will enter kindergarten
throughout Florida. Each and
every child owns the possibil-


ity of turning 18 with the lu-
minosity and the uncompro-
mising belief of a Traci or a
Jessie. That's the promise of
America!
Between now and 2019,
however, there is work to be
done. Let's not give up, in-
stead let's take a good look at
young people like Tract and
Jessie. What did it take for
them to reach this point? Most
of the answers can be found in
words like FAITH, HOPE,
BELIEF, and especially EN-


COURAGEMENT.
When it was my turn I did-
n't have much to say. I simply
reminded the two young
adults that their opportunity
is one of translating what has
worked for them into good
news for the world. Then I
quoted Paul from his letter to
another hopeful people: "Do
everything without complain-
ing or arguing, so that you
may become blameless and
pure, children of God without
fault in a crooked and de-


praved generation, in which
you shine like stars in the uni-
verse as you hold out the
word of life." (Philippians
2:14-16)
Good words for the rest of
us, too, and a much more ef-
fective response than simply
complaining that we are
doomed.

pa based writer Reach him at

It is a most fortunate fact that altruism
seems to be Ibuilt into human nature. Not
only does this happy fact make it likely
that we will help our fellow hiluman beings
in their times of need. but it also tends to
make Ius, feel good about doing it.
Through the ages, wise men and women
have remarked that the best way to
relieve our own suffering is to help those
who are less fortunate. Helping others
takes the focus off of our own problems,
and it just feels good. The flip side of this
is that those \\ho are excessively devoted
to advancing their oiwni happiness usually
are not very happy. Happiness is a natural
byproduct of helping others and the
happiest people are usually those who are
most de(_oted to helping others. Consider
Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, or the
Dalai Lama; it is no coincidence that
their lives of selfless devotion to relie _ing
human misery are also examples of
supreme happiness. \\e are made by God
to serve others and will be milost content
and at peace wheln we devoIte ourselves to
that service. \e siholuld reflect on wMhat
way we are best able to serve hiumainity,
and then implement this into our lives.

So we care to use our dim rent gifts in
accordance 'with the grace lthat[ God
has given us....Whoc-er shows kindness
to others should do it cheetfi(llv.

Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.,
Bronson is urging horse
owners to vaccinate their
horses against Eastern
Equine Encephalitis (EEE)
and West Nile Virus
(WNV) as mosquito sea-
son gets under way. Four
cases of EEE have already
been confirmed in Florida
since January one as re-
cently as this week -

Such scars are more common in
African-Americans, Hispanics, and
people of eastern Mediterranean
descent. The patches, strips, sheets,
liquid films and gels usually contain
silicone, which many studies have
shown can soften scars and reduce
itching, as well as reduce
hypertrophic and keloid scar
formation. The wound must have
closed before that patch is applied,
but the scar should be less than six
months old. The products must be
used long-term, such as all day for
two months. They are not intended
for the treatment of normal flat
scars.

are not usually seen until

Bronson says the majori-
ty of cases can be prevent-
ed through proper vaccina-
tions and booster shots
,against mosquito borne ill-
nesses and he is reminding
horse owners that now is
the time to take action.
"Last year there were
150 reported cases of EEE
across 43 counties, triple
the number from the year
before when 48 cases of
the disease reported im-
pacting 27 counties,"
Bronson said. "Now that
mosquito season is upon
us, it is critical that horse
owners take steps to pro-
tect their animals. We have
already seen some EEE


the best choice
for non-chlorine

pool care
Softswim is the non-chlorine
pool care program from
BioGuard. It's not the only
non-chlorine system out
there, but it's your best bet
for soft, gentle, clear water.
SoftSwim's premium
algicide is the most effective
one for this pool care
category. SoftSwim Clarifier
with built-in stabilizer helps
keep pool water clearer
longer And SoftSwim Assist
kills and prevents slime and
mold in all non-chlorine
pools.

cases due to the relatively
warm winter and we need
to ensure that these cases
are kept to a minimum."
EEE is a viral disease
that affects the central ner-
vous system and is trans-
mitted to horses by infect-
ed mosquitoes. Signs of
the virus include fever,
listlessness, stumbling,
circling, coma and usually
death. The disease is fatal
in horses in 90 percent of
the cases.
Bronson says he is
pleased that no cases of
WNV have been reported
so far this year, and WNV
cases have continued to
drop over the years since a
vaccination against the
disease became available
in 2001.
"There was a lot of at-
tention paid to West Nile
Virus when it was first dis-
covered in Florida in
2000. Horse owners did a
very good job in protect-
ing their animals from this
disease. We want to be
sure they are just as ag-
gressive in protecting
horses against EEE,"
Bronson said.
The Department and the
state's numerous mosquito
control districts have
strengthened their surveil-
lance, control and preven-
tion measures in order to
be better prepared for
mosquito-borne illnesses.
There are'ongoing efforts
to keep the mosquito pop-
ulations down but because
there is no fool proof
method to prevent the dis-
eases, vaccinations are
critical.
So far this year EE1 has
been confirmed in horses
in Columbia, Duval, Mari-
on and Levy counties, all
of which were fatal.

Up your odds with special-opportunity hunts


If you haven't been see-
ing the quantity or quality
of game you'd like, you
may want to consider ap-
plying for a special-oppor-
tunity hunt. For the past
nine years, the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) has of-
fered these unique fall-sea-
son hunts for deer, wild hog
and released quail on the
state's best public hunting
lands. Maybe it's time you
look- into getting in on the
action and experience the
hunt of a lifetime.
These extraordinary hunts
offer large tracts of land
with an abundance of game
and low hunting pressure.
All deer hunts allow you to
take only mature bucks with
one antler having at least
four points. Hunters also
can take does if they apply
for, and draw, an antlerless
deer permit. This practice


of quality deer management
offers hunters excellent
chances of taking quality
bucks and the opportunity
to take a doe on public land.
There is no size or bag lim-
it on hog hunts.
These special-opportunity
deer and wild hog hunts
take place on Fort Drum
(Indian River County),
Lake Panasoffkee (Sumter
County), Triple N Ranch
(Osceola County) and
Green Swamp West Unit
(Pasco County) wildlife
management areas.
Fort Drum has several
gun hunts on its 20,858
acres, each one costing only
$50, should you get drawn.
Besides taking 11 deer,
hunters bagged 33 hogs
there last year.
Lake Panasoffkee offers
both archery and general
gun hunts on the 8,676-acre
tract. Hunters harvested 23


deer and 47 hogs there last
season.
Triple N Ranch has two
general gun deer hunts, and
32 deer were taken off the
10,894 acres last year 10
being quality bucks.
What's impressive is the
fact it took hunters only an
average of six.days to bag a
deer during the seven-day
hunts.
Green Swamp West Unit
is where James Stovall took
the state's highest-scoring
deer on record a 25-point,
non-typical which netted a
206 Boone and Crockett
score. He -took the trophy
buck in 1999 after getting
drawn for the special-op-
portunity bow hunt. The
area offers archery and gun
hunts on 34,335 acres. Last
year, hunters bagged 52
deer, and more than half
were nice bucks. One-hun-
dred eighty-eight hogs were


taken from there as well.
The FWC also has week-
long released-quail hunts
on Blackwater Carr Unit in
Santa Rosa County. With
these hunts, you must bring
and release your own pen-
raised quail. There is just
one $100-permit available
for each of the 16 weeks,
and if you're lucky enough
to draw one, you and up to
three of your friends will
have the entire 590 acres to
yourselves.
If you'd like to apply for
any of these great hunts, the
first thing you'll need to do-
is get ahold of a 2006-2007
Special-Opportunity Fall
Hunt Worksheet available
at FWC offices and at
MyFWC. com/hunting.
Beginning 10,.a.m. (EDT)
May 9, you can submit your
completed application at'
MyFWC.com/license or at
any county tax collector's


office or license agent. The
application period runs
through midnight June 14.
These coveted permits are
selected by random draw-
ing, and you may apply for
as many hunts and dates as
you like in order to increase
your chances, of being -se-'
lected. You must include a
$5 nonrefundable fee for
each hunt you apply for,
though hunters are limited
to drawing only one permit
per hunt.
On or before June 28, you
will receive, by mail, a spe-
cial-opportunity permit in-
voice if you are selected or
a rejection notice if you are
not. You have until July 15
to pay the cost of the select-
ed hunt if you get drawn,
and you may do so at any li-
cense agent or tax collec-
tor's office, or at
MyFWC.com/license.

The importance of family


(ARA) Gatherings with
your relatives may be
more important than you
think. Did you know that
familial encounters not
only provide positive
experiences, but also can
play a large role in how
successful and happy you
are in life?
"Families through time
have changed, but they
have not declined in
importance to Americans,"
says Dr. Vern Bengtson,
professor of gerontology
and sociology at the
University of Southern
California in Los Angeles.
"Multi-generational bonds
represent a valuable
resource for families in
the 21st century and are
becoming more important
than nuclear family ties
for well-being and support
over the course of our
lives."
Modern Woodmen of
America, a fraternal life
insurance organization
dedicated to helping
people achieve quality
family life, sponsored a
Harris Interactive survey
based on 1,001 random
telephone interviews. Poll
results indicate that most
Americans aged 25 to 65
(98 percent) believe it is
good for children to know
their relatives and family
history. Americans connect
with their families through
a variety of gathering
activities, such as holiday
meals, weddings, birthday
parties, reunions, family
vacations and less formal
get-togethers. In fact, the
survey indicates that
approximately nine out of
10 Americans have
attended a family event in
the past three years, and
72 percent-of Americans
attend multiple family
gatherings throughout the
year.
Why? The reasons vary
and overlap. Americans
cite everything from the
noble desire to provide
their children with the
opportunity to know their
relatives and to learn
about their family heritage
to participating just
because family events are
fun.
"Face-to-face contact
provides the contextual
part of what it means to be
family," explains Michael
Benjamin, executive
director for the Council
Qn Family Relations in
Minneapolis, Minn.
"We are genetically
predisposed to cling to our
family," explains Dr.
Bengtson. "It is wired into
us the need to bond with
family members.
Historically, family
relationships have played
the most basic role of all -
- ensuring survival. Today,
most people rely on family
interactions to provide an
affirming, positive
experience. They provide
a sense of support and an
identity of who we are and
what's unique about us."'
While the most dramatic
results appear to revolve
around the parent-child-
grandchild relationship,
relationships with more
distant relatives such as
aunts, uncles and cousins
also are important.
"Intergenerational and
extended family
relationships not only
create a sense of identity
but, even today, are a
valuable resource for


better jobs.
People who cultivate
extended family
relationships are at an
advantage emotionally and
are often more successful
in their personal lives.
Both children and adults
benefit from these
relationships during times
of great stress, such as
tragedy, death or divorce.
They also reap the rewards
when joyous events enter
their lives, whether it is a
new job, a new child or a
milestone birthday.
It is even suspected that
interaction with extended
family can have a positive
effect on your lifespan and
physical health. "We have
seen evidence that an
increased degree of
positive contact with
family can add years to
your life," points out Dr.
Bengtson. "We have strong
reason to believe that
people with active
children and grandchildren
relationships live longer."
Children today are very


fortunate," he says.
"Provided their parents
take the initiative, they
have more opportunities
for interaction with the
larger extended family
than children several
generations ago. They
literally have more
relatives living."
Even though technology
allows families to keep in
touch and share personal
milestones more easily,
Dr. Bengtson also cautions
against relying too much
on long-distance
technological
conveniences, such as e-
mail and teleconferencing.
Nothing replaces the
experience of actually
gathering in the same
room with family.
Modern Woodmen
encourages families to
gather face to face. To
help facilitate this, it has
developed a Web site
called
www. gatherings. info,
which makes planning

simple.
"Sometimes there is a
sense of something
missing if you do not have
face-to-face contact," Dr.
Bengtson emphasizes. "In-
person contact gives you'

Great gardening tips for



novices and know-it-alls


. (ARA) Every gardener
knows that no matter how
long you've been growing
your garden, there's always
something new to learn.
And whether you're faced
with an unfamiliar garden
pest or are curious what
variety of green bean thrives
best in your climate, the best
people to learn from are
other gardeners.
"Every gardener I've ever
met has been happy to share
their secrets," says Glenda
Lehman Ervin of Lehman's,
a company specializing in
old-fashioned, high-quality
merchandise. She herself is
an avid gardener, which
isn't surprising considering
she grew up in the family
business. Her dad founded
Lehman's general store
nearly 50 years ago to serve
the Amish population in
Kidron, Ohio.
"Lots of people are
intimidated by gardening,"
says Lehman Ervin. "They
think there's some great
mystery to it. But the only
trick to gardening is to grow
the right plants for your area
and to keep it manageable.
The rest is just a matter of
learning by doing."
Here are some tips for
enjoying your garden this
year whether you've been
digging in the dirt for years,
or you're just starting out.
Rule number one is to be
realistic when planning.
your garden. If you work
full time and have family
obligations when you're
home, chances are good you
won't have time to tend a
two-acre garden. That
doesn't mean you need to
give Up gardening, though.
Just find a way to fit
gardening into your
lifestyle.
For example, Lehman
Ervin and her neighbors are
discussing the possibility of
a "subdivision coop."
"None of us has the time to
tend a huge garden, but we
all value fresh vegetables in
the summer," she explains.
So, each family agrees to
grow enough of one crop to
share with all the others.
One family will grow
tomatoes, one will grow
zucchini, etc., and then they
swap so every family enjoys.
the harvest.
Lehman, Ervin will also be
growing a "junk store
garden" with her daughter
this summer. This is nothing
more than a planter (in this
case a drawer from an old
desk) that they Will use for a
container garden. Those
without a yard to garden in
can take a cue from this
technique. "Container
gardening is gaining
popularity as people
downsize," says Lehman
Ervin. Seed companies are
even producing plants
especially designed to grow
in smaller spaces like
containers check out the
organic seeds available from
Lehman's. Make watering
easy and conserve resources
by leaving a galvanized
watering can from
Lehman's where it can fill
up with rain water to use on
your plants.
Another option for those
who can't tend a large
garden is to focus on a


theme. Concentrate on
growing herbs, or plant a
salad garden with various
types of lettuce and edible
flowers. Or take a cue from
one of Lehman Ervin's
friends, who grows a salsa


garden every year; her
homemade salsa is a
coveted gift. '
As with any project, the
right tools make all the
difference, whether that
means a good watering
system, the right soil or
natural pest control.
Lehman's carries complete


line of Wilcox garden tools
that feature contoured
plastic grips and are made
of nearly indestructible
stainless steel that won't
rust or bend. Gardeners also
love Lehman's cypress
potting table, the perfect
area for transplanting,
dividing and potting plants.


It can also double as a
serving table for outdoor
gatherings.
No matter what size your
garden, the experts at
Lehman's have products
that will help it grow. For
more information, visit
