told Robinson. "'Although subject
to change, the anticipated date for
occupancy for the main unit is Oc-

plans for construction of the annex

mates) or xv ork camp (up to three
dorms and about 432 inmates) at ,

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Dear Editor:
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) was saddened to learn of the three young women
who lost their lives during encounters with wild alligators
during the past few days. Our hearts go out to their loved
ones.
Aswe try to maintain the natural character of Florida, it's'
important to keep these tragedies in perspective. The three
recent fatalities are unrelated and do not reflect a trend.
Daily encounters with wildlife are part of life in Florida.
Such encounters rarely result in tragedy> however.
Human safety is our highest priority. In 2005, the FWC
received thousands of nuisance alligator complaints. Nui-
sance alligator trappers, under contract with the FWC, re-
moved more than 8,000 nuisance gators in the interest of
public safety.
People may also buy alligator harvest permits, which
helps us to achieve our population management objectives.
In 2005, for example, hunters harvested more than 3,000 al-
ligators.
In February, 2006, the FWC extended the alligator hunt
season to give participants greater flexibility in scheduling-
their hunts. At the same time we changed the rule to allow
individuals to be issued more than one alligator harvest
permit. These changes are part of our population manage-
ment program..
Some people have asked if alligator mating season-May
through mid-June-is a significant factor in alligator bite sta-
tistics. It is not What is significant is the fact that warm
weather causes alligators to become more active at the
same time people are spending more, time in anc on the
water.
Since 1948 there have been 17 confirmed fatalities assodi-
ated with alligators. (This number does not include the
three most recent fatalities, which are still under investiga-
tion.) As terrible as these tragedies are, they do not repre-
sent an overall threat to the general public. I want to re-
mind Floridians to stay alert when recreating in and
around fresh water, but at the same time I think it is im-
portant for Floridians to feel confident that Florida wildlife
is truly one of our state's greatest treasures.
If you'd like to find out more about
alligators, go to MyFWC.com/gators.
Sincerely, Rodney Barreto
Chairman Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission

Dear Editor.

United Way of Suwannee Valley, along with local non-
profit agencies and church food pantries which provide
food for those in need, would like to commend the efforts
of the postal workers and our neighbors in the Suwannee
Valley for generating more than 32,000 pounds of food
through the annual National Association of Letter Carriers
annual "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive held Saturday,
May 13. The effort this year more than doubled the amount
of food brought in last year.
Although we hear about hunger in other parts of the
world, local citizens rarely hear about or see there is hunger
right here at home in the Suwannee Valley. Our postal
workers and our neighbors really stepped up this year and
made this the most successful food drive in history.
NALC president William H. Young accurately said,
"Letter carriers see the silent suffering that hunger brings to
millions of families in the neighborhoods we serve. Sum-
mer is a particularly critical time for millions of children
whose school lunch programs are suspended until fall and
their families must find alternate sources ,of nutrition.
Many are from working families where the paycheck can
not stretch far enough to provide for medicine, nothing,
shelter and food."
Thank you again for the generous donations of our local
citizens and the extremely hard work done by our rural
mail carriers and National Association of Letter Carriers
members.
Again, on behalf of each of those who will benefit from
the food provided through this successful event, I sincere-
ly thank all of our community residents who contributed


food for this year's food drive and thank our letter carriers
for the extra work the food drive imposes on them and
which they so cheerfully accomplish.
Rita Dopp, Executive Director
United Way Of Suwannee Valley

It's ,that time of year when
television networks are about to
give us summer reruns. But be-
fore, they do, they have to give
us cliff-hangers in the last
episode of their feature pro-,
grams to keep us anxious until
next fall. As a rule, I don't get
anxious about television pro-
gramming. I get anxious about
bream beds, dove shoots, and x-


rays.
These cliff hangers are those episodes where the
,leading.man gets shot by a sniper while he's enter-
ing court to testify against a mobster. As he falls to
the floor, he hands a video tape, covered in blood,
to the female prosecutor with.the low cut dress.
These are the episodes where the airplane pilot
is losing control of the craft and the entire cast of
that show is on board singing "Nearer My God To
Thee."
These are the episodes where a monkey that is a
carrier of some rare disease bites the leading actor.
The leading actor is comatose and did not change
the beneficiary on his life insurance. And he didn't.
tell anyone where he hid the new improved for-
mula for "rich chocolaty Ovaltine."
These are the.episodes when Donald Trump yells
so obnoxiously, "You're fired!" and the fellow he
let go comes over the table and beats the crap out
of him. Oh my gosh! I got carried away there. That
was just a dream of mine, not a cliff-hanger!
Or in the case of that new show "Lost", this
probably is where the ghost of Gilligan appears
and informs them that they were not survivors at
all, but the whole time they were waiting in pur-
gatory or hell's waiting room, whichever applies.
And in the fall, we will get about two or three of.
the new episodes and then they will show us a
couple of weeks of reruns and then back to the
new stuff for five or six weeks and then the cycle


US Senator Mel Martinez issued the following
statement in response to President Bush's Oval Of-
fice address on immigration reform and border se-
curity:
"I am glad President Bush spoke directly to the
American people tonight about this vital national
security issue. This is helpful as the Senate begins
this critically important debate.
"The President sent the right message and set a
positive tone at the outset of this debate. There is
* no question that we must secure our borders. Pres-
ident Bush has. laid out a plan of action that em-
ploys the use of the National Guard on an interim
,basis to help immediately place more manpower
on the border.
"The President also laid out his support for com-
prehensive reform stressing that America can be a
lawful society and a welcoming society at the same
time. We need to realize that there are two parts to
this problem: securing our border and reforming
our broken immigration system.. The President's
actions will help this country, but the Congress
must act to fix out broken immigration policies."
Sen. Martinez voiced his praise and appreciation
for Porter Goss upon learning of Goss' decision to
step down from the post of director of the central
intelligence agency.
"I applaud Porter Goss for his willingness to un-
dertake such an important and significant role at
this time in our country's history. Porter has had a
long arid distinguished record of service for Flori-
da and for our nation; our country owes him a debt
of gratitude. I have the greatest respect for Porter
Goss and the highest appreciation for his role in
helping to protect our country."
Sen. Martinez highlighted that the US economy
continues to produce strong growth and good
wages. The April Employment Situation report
shows that more than 5.2 million jobs have been
created since August 2003.
"We have a .strong economy in part because of
the positive tax policies of the last few years," said
Sen. Martinez. "In Congress, we need to maintain
and extend those' policies that foster growth; in-
vestment, and job creation."
The Labor Department released new jobs fig-
ures-138,000 jobs created in April. The economy
has created about 2 million jobs over the past 12
moriths-and more than 5.2 million since August
2003. The unemployment rate is 4.7 percent-lower
than the average of the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and
1990s.
Hourly compensation rose at a 5.7 percent rate in
the first quarter-more than twice as much as in the
previous quarter.
Sen. Martinez introduced legislation that would
block Cuba from engaging in the production of oil
and/or natural gas resources off the coast of Flori-
da. The bill would not weaken enforcement of cur-
rent US Maritime policy.
"This bill sends a clear message that any attempt
to develop Cuba's oil exploration program will be


begins again.
I must admit that I got suckered into that series
"Lost." It's a continuous story about a plane crash
where some of the people fell on one side 'of the is-
land and some fell on the other side of the island.
Eventually, they got together..
The great -implausibility of that show was right
from the start. No one survives that kind of crash.
And there are no islands anywhere that large and
that verdant where there are no condominiums, no
casinos or other byproducts of mankind.
I have an idea that the script for this show is be-
ing written by fourth graders as a' class
project. The show is a mixture of science, voodoo,
hokus pokus, religion and social studies. But most-
ly, it's creative garbage.
These survivors are being haunted by an existing
group of people that we don't know anything
about even after two seasons. They are called "the
others." They were already there on the island do-
ing some kind of experiment.
Meanwhile, the people who survived the crash
have discovered what is tantamount to an under-
ground Holiday Inn. Boy would Robinson Crusoe.
have liked these script writers'
Of course some last episodes generally have to
kill off a couple of actors because their contracts
are up, and they've been offered roles in new pro-
ductions.'
I'm about ready to quit watching "Lost." It has,
about reached cartoon level. After all, it's not often,
that you find polar bearson a tropical island. That
peculiarity has never been explained. But then,
what do you expect when fourth graders write a
television script?
More and more we find evidence that television
indeed is the "great wasteland." Or if you spend
too much time on the couch, "the great waistland."

met with strong sanctions," said.Martinez.
The Martinez bill 'is the companion bil.tipJlegis-
lation introduced in the US House of Representa-
tives by Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen late
last week.
The bill specifically amends the Cuban Liberty.
and Democratiq Solidarity Act of 1996 to deny US
visas to any foreign agent or entity that con-
tributes to the development of Cuba's oil-explo-
ration program; The bill further imposes sanctions
on any individuals or entities that invest $1 mil-
lion or more to develop Cuba's oil and natural gas.
resources.
Regarding any action that would attempt to
weaken the overall Cuban embargo, Sen. Martinez
said, "It would be foolish to put the future of
America's energy resources in the hands of an
anti-American dictator with a record of expropri-
ating US oil company assets. Doing so would cre-
ate greater dependence on a foreign entity.which
is directly contrary to the direction of US policy."
Last week in the US Senate
Sen. Martinez last week voted for the final pas-
sage of the Tax Increase Prevention and Reconcili-
ation Act which maintains tax cuts of $70 billion
dollars. This act extends certain provisions of the
tax code that have expired or will soon expire; in-
cluding expensing for equipment purchases by
small businesses, relief from the Alternative Mini-
mum Tax (AMT), and maintains the lower tax rates
on dividends and capital gains.
The Conference Report extends through 2006
and expands the AMT. exemption amount to
$42,500 for single taxpayers and $62,550 for joint
filers.
The Conference Report also extends the 15-per-
cent tax rate on capital gains and dividends for
two years through 2010. The 0-percent rate for in-
dividuals in the bottom two tax brackets will also
be extended through 2010.
This passed the Senate by a vote of 54 to 44 with
2 Senators not voting.

Ed daSilva announces his intent to

seek the District 4 School Board seat


-Stating that community in-
volvement is the key to a suc-
cessful education system, Ed
daSilva announced his candida- .
cy for the Suwannee County .
School Board District 4 seat.
"The county should have the
ability to meet the needs of .
every student, but this can only
happen through a collaborative -
effort with strong community "
support and a closer relationship'
with the family,' daSilva said,
"Local businesses already pro-
vide tremendous support to our
education system. We must Ed daSilva
look to strengthen our involve-
ment with parents, step-parents,
and grandparents," he added. "With everybody
on the same page, only then can we best meet
the needs of the individual child."
daSilva.is married to Tara daSilva, a pro-
gram coordinator for Suwannee Social Ser-
vices. They are the parents of three children
ages 19, 13 and 10. His step-daughter, Kris-
ten, graduated from Suwannee High last year
and is finishing her first year at Santa Fe
Community College. His two sons, Ryan and
Tyler attend Suwannee Middle School and
Suwannee Elementary School.
"Every school night is a busy one," daSilva
said. "It's always quizzing the boys on an up-
coming test, spelling words or proofreading a
paper that is due. I need to do everything I can
to make this one of the best school systems in
the state, not just for my own children but for
all of our children."
daSilva is a 1983 graduate of Suwannee
High School and a 1989.graduate of the Uni-
versity of Florida. He has spent his career
working as a children's therapist, having been
employed with the Henry and Rilla White
Foundation for the past 10 years. He- has also


worked as a case manager with
Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
In addition to his work as a
^ counselor with children and
their families, daSilva has had
the opportunity to serve as a
program director while working
with the White Foundation. "I
covered a fairly large area while
serving as director, Raiford to
Pensacola, Jasper to Inglis, "
daSilva said. "That was a lot of
miles. I was responsible for
counseling programs in seven .
separate juvenile facilities," he
said. "This gave me the oppor-
tunity to enhance my problem-
solving skills, leadership abili-
ties and improve my time management."
daSilva's early work as a children's coun-
selor gave him the privilege of working direct-
ly in the school system. From there, he
moved oi to working with delinquent youth at
Panther Success Center. "My entire career has
been spent working with kids. It's just a nat-
ural for me to push 'on into the education sys-
tem," daSilva said.
daSilva maintains strong community in-
volvement through coaching baseball and soc-
cer at the Rec Center. He serves as secretary
for a community Juvenile Justice Council and
vice president of a community drug coalition.
daSilva has helped obtain funding for school-
based prevention programs that serve Suwan-
nee County students.
"We have the tremendous benefit of a rural
county, but we will need to develop a 21st
century outlook," the SchoolBoard candidate
said. "We have got to address the future needs
of our changing county. "I'm not trying to
reinvent the wheel, but I sure would like to
polish it up and make it roll better," daSilva
concludes.

the school system, hospitals

nesses, government, individu-
als and other agencies are in
the process of establishing a
local task force to form plans
to handle a possible pandem-
ic. First responders and oth-
ers are also receiving'addi-
tional training.
Shands at Live Oak Infec-
tion Control Nurse Alicia
McCullers said the country as
a whole is taking precautions
against a bird flu outbreak
and other flu pandemics.
No cases of the bird flu
have been documented in the
United States so far, but Mc-
Cullers and others worry that
with so many people travel-
- ing overseas, someone could
become infected and bring
this strand of flu back to
America.
Cases of the bird flu have
been documented in several
third-world countries and
about half of those infected
die from the virus.
"But this could be because
in such countries people live
in close contact with their
chickens and the places aren't
very sanitary," McCullers ex-
plained.
She said so far the virus,
found among poultry and
other fowl, is only passed
from bird to person but not
spread among humans. How-

ever, concerns are the bird flu
will mutate, causing people
with the virus to infect others,
and thus becoming a pandem-
ic situation. -
Wooley said in the event a
person in Suwannee County
does become infected with a
disease like the bird flu, that
person would be put in isola-
tion and health officials
would try to determine who
he/she had contact with. After
contacts are determined, vari-
ous places, such as business-
es, would be shut down and
quarantined for several days..
At this point there is noi
vaccine for the bird flu and
health professionals can only
treat symptoms.
McCullers said persons
should pay attention to gener-
al hygiene such as covering
the mouth when coughing and


~


hand washing.
"A person who is healthy is
less likely to become infected
or at. least will become less
sick. So, keep up your im-
mune system and stay
healthy," advises Wooley.
"If you have traveled and
upon returning to the U.S,
find yourself sick, see a
physician immediately and
tell your doctor you have
been out of the country," Mc-
Cullers advises.
The first meeting for the lo-
cal task force is'May 25 at 9

fice. For more information

Gardening Tips Mas


Growing daylilies
With the weather
starting to heat up, it
might be a good idea to
hold off planting some
flowers, trees and
shrubs until the fall. But
no problem. The tough,
adaptable, vigorous and
colorful daylily can take
transplanting all during
the growing season.
While spring and fall are:
still the ideal times to
plant daylilies, they can
be planted anytime dur-
ing the growing season.
, The scientific name for
daylily is hemerocallis,
most recently consid-
ered: to belong in the
plant family hemerocall-
idaceae. The 'word
hemerocallis is derived
from two Greek words
meaning- "beauty" and
"day," referring to the
fact that each flower
lasts only one day. ,To
make up for this, there
are many flower buds
on each daylily flower
stalk and many stalks in
each clump of plants. So,
the flowering period of a
clump is usually several
weeks long and some
have more than one
flowering period.
Gardeners love
daylilies for their rain-
bow of colors; they
flower in every shade
(except pure blue and
pure white) and in many
shapes and sizes.
A well-established
daylily clump may pro-
duce as many as 400
flowers in a single sea-


son. Each plant will pro-
duce blooms for 30-40
days between early and
late summer, depending
on the variety. By plant-
ing several different cul-
tivars, it's easy to have a
continuous show of
blooms throughout the
entire summer. There
are more than 50,000
registered cultivars.
While this is. not the
time to start daylilies
from seed, you can pur-
chase a variety of these
plants from local grow-
ers, nurseries or on-line,
either bare root or in
containers.
Daylilies grow well in
the north Florida climate
and require minimal
care; they are relatively
,insect and disease free.
Daylilies are used for
color in shrub borders
and in perennial beds.
They also are excellent
ground covers on slopes.
When choosing
daylily cultivars, consid-
* er that light-colored
flowers show up better
at a distance than darker
ones. Dark-colored vari-
eties look better when
planted against a light
backdrop. Daylilies pre-
fer sunny locations al-
though they will tolerate
semi-shade.
Daylilies can range in
height from eight inches
to five feet, and flower
size can. be as small as
two inches or as large as
eight inches. The plant
will reach a mature size
in about three to four


years. They are long-
lived if given even mod-
erate care. Most daylilies
are vigorous growers.
and need dividing every
three to four years. Un-
divided daylilies often
will continue to grow
and provide a ground-
cover but will have 'few-
er blooms.
To plant daylilies, pre-
pare the soil by-incorpo-
rating compost, peat
moss or well-rotted ma-
nure. The hole should be
large enough to accom-
modate the roots when
the roots are spread hor-
izontally. Plant'daylilies
18 to 24 inches apart. Set
the ,plant so that the
crown is no deeper than
one inch below the sur-
face of the soil. If your
plant is bare root, mount
up the soil in the middle
of the hole and drape the
roots over the mound.
Firm ,the s.oil.geitlvy and
water the plant immedi-
ately. Continue to keep
the plant watered until
established.
Although daylilies are
drought-tolerant once
established, consistent
watering while budding


and flowering produces
better quality flowers.
Daylilies have long been
known as one of the eas-
iest perennials to grow.
While this is true to
some extent,-, just like
any plant, the letter care
you provide, the better
your daylilies Will per-
form.
Daylilies usually grow-
adequately without fer-
tilizer, but grow\ best
when lightly fertilized.
Slow-release fertilizers
are best for dLavilies;
they prefer moderate ni-
trogen and high rates of
phosphorous I and
potash. Daylilies' prefer
slightly acid 'pH 6 to
6.5) well-draimed soil
with plenty' o organic
matters. They )are ex-
tremely tolerant Lnd will
grow in almost ay soil
except poorly drained
soil.
A e raised flower b ds
;if drainage is, a prople_. .
Mulch helps to conser e ?
moisture in the soil and
control weeds.

come a partner in 1994 to pro-
vide the coordination between

DOH recognizes
National

Women's Health

Week
National Women's
Check-Up Day and
Governor's first
Conference on
Women's Health
The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) joins county
health departments, health care
practitioners, Healthy Start
Coalitions and citizens across
the state in celebrating Nation-
al Women's Health Week, May
1. 4-20. DOH also recognized
National. Women's Check-Up
Day on Monday, May 15 to
promote preventive health care
as part of a healthy lifestyle.
"National Women's Health
Week is the perfect time to es-
tablish life-long healthy
habits," said DOH Deputy Sec-
retary for Health and Florida
Women's Health Officer Nancy
Humbert, A.R.N.P., M.S.N. "I
advise Florida's women to re-
connect to their health during
Women's Health Week. The
Department encourages all
women to proactively maintain
their health by consistently
scheduling check-ups with
their primary health care
provider, in addition to adding
a physical activity, such as
walking, to their daily rou-
tines."
National Women's Health
Week promotes awareness
about key health issues women
share and highlights convenient
steps to maintain health and
well-being. This week also re-
minds women of the impor-
tance of incorporating simple
preventative health behaviors
into every day routines. This
campaign is nationally coordi-
nated by the US Department of
Health and Human Services'
Office on Women's Health.
DOH's Office of 'Women's
Health promotes the week
throughout Florida.
Since prevention is the num-
ber one way to avoid common
health problems, National
Women's Check-Up Ddy en-
couraged women to visit health
care professionals to receive
preventive exams and screen-
ings, including check-ups for
heart disease, diabetes, cancer
and sexually transmitted dis-
eases (STDs). Maintaining a.
regular check-up schedule is
one of the five healthy habits
that can contribute to enhanc-
ing a women's health., Other
measures include routine exer-
cise, a healthy diet,, not smok-
ing and following general safe-
ty rules.
To celebrate Women's
Health, DOH hosted the first
Governor's Conference on
Women's Health in Orlando on
May 18-19. This two-day con-
ference was designed to pro-
vide relative information on the
health issues affecting Florida's
women and to ascertain infor-
mation from women's health
stakeholders-both of which are
vital to the development of a
statewide plan on women's
health. Learni more at the Con-
ference Web site at
http://www.cme.hsc.usf.edu/w
omens health/.
The US Department of
Health and Human Services is
also sponsoring an eight-week
physical activity initiative-
WOMAN (Women and Girls
On the Move Across the Na-
tion) Challenge on Mother's
Day, May 14 and ends July 8.
DOH has offered this challenge
to female employees as a work-
site wellness initiative. To learn

lenge and National Women's

To participate in National
Women's Check-Up Day
women should contact their
health care providers or one of
the participating health care
providers, to schedule check-
ups arid screening services. For

health visit the Department of
Health Web site at.

Many companies are look-
ing to expand their business
through increased volume
generated on the Internet. It
takes more than developing
a Web site to market effec-
tively on this medium. There
are special marketing skills
required to insure that the
site will receive the "'hits"
necessary to sell product in
sufficient volume to warrant
the expense.
Adding the Internet to a
landed business in addition
to the daily pressures of
managing a business can
seem daunting. Besides the
elements of the Web site.
one must consider the costs,
resource allocation and re-
turn on investment when
taking this step into the cvy-
ber world.
The size of a target market
for any business can be in-
creased dramatically b\ en-
try into e-commerce and
there is a large target market

Retired educators meet


Suwannee/Lafayette Retired
Educators met recently at Dixie
Grill in Live Oak. Willie Veal Jr.
called the meeting to order and
Louise Blevins read the minutes
of the last meeting.
Veal then welcomed everyone
and asked the chairman of all
committees to give a report.
Vy Wingate Ritter gave a re-
port on the scholarship commit-
tee stating they plan to award
four scholarships at the May
meeting for new seniors. They
still have the state scholarships to
award for the rest of the previous
winners for the rest of their four
years in college.
Grace Jones reported 112
member locally.
Laura Hodges mentioned the
state has over 13,000 members
in the Florida Retired ,System,
which is rated number one in the
nation.
Bill McMillan gave a legisla-
tive report. This committee is
one of the most important com-
mittees since it oversees legisla-
tion which affects retired teach-
ers. Some of the benefits it has
gained for retirees are tax free in-
surance money and yearly raises.
Calvin Bradley, the health
care chairman, mentioned we
need to have a speaker on dia-
betes in the near future since this
is a growing problem among se-
nior citizens.
Ina Putnal told about the
grandparents contest they are
having in the local schools on the
fifth grade level. Winners were
presented with awards at the
May 2, covered dish meeting at
Community Presbyterian
Church. New retirees honored at
this meeting.
Elouise Green mentioned the
volunteer of the year was Earl
Carter, Sr.
The treasurer's report was giv-
en by Carolyn Winbum and ap-
proved as read.
Carter gave the benediction
. and the meeting was adjourned.


The group enjoyed fellowship
and gave out door prizes and the
half and half money was award-
ed.
All of the local papers includ-
ing the Suwannee Democrat,
Mayo Free Press and Branford
News are very special for being
so gracious to all the local orga-
nizations. Thanks again!

gathered, Richmond wrote a
script for the movie based on
students' notes, and film ma-
jor Nicholas Serenati com-
piled and edited the film.
In a visit to one of Rich-
mond's classes to discuss the
film, ELP students were eager
to share their experiences
with the project.
Third, fourth and fifth
graders visited Ted Jones,
who tailor makes western and
English saddles for people all
over the world.
Richmond said Jones
makes saddles for movie stars'
that are featured in films and
to be used for the re-enact-
ment of the Civil War in
Olustee.
"'Mr. Jones showed us how
he soaks the leather to make it
soft so you could, put impres-
sions on it. He let us practice
it with metal and a hammer. It
was really cool," said ELP
student Lindsay Brothers.
"What I liked best was'vis-
iting Sonny Nobles," said
ELP student Wesley Thomas.
"He is our current mayor. He
talked about what changes
could be made in Suwannee
County and what changes


have already been made."
Thomas said though he
wasn't one of the students
who visited Shenandoah
Dairy, he learned a lot from
reading the movie script.
"They pamper every single
.cow and give them three
square meals 'a day," said
Thomas. "They give each
cow a tag number that tells
how many gallons they
milked-or how many 'calves
they have had to track which
cows are producing."
In recalling the visit, to the
Recreation Center, ELP stu-
dent Brandon Furry said he
learned about how many em-,
ployees they needed to run
the center.
Furry's, dad, Jason Furry,
the Recreation Center coordi-
nator, introduced the class to
employees in the office and
then engaged the class in a
soccer game.
ELP student Taylor Randell
spoke about the experience of
visiting the University of
Florida (UF) Research Cen-
ter.
"Mr. Jason Chandler (UF
.agriculture extension agen;
showed us different kinds of
plants and invited us inside
the greenhouses. Mis. Linda'

Landrum (UF horticulturist)
told us about horticulture,"
Randell said. "I learned there
are some types of plants that
can't grow in certain places."
Richmond said the research
center is trying to get tanger-
ines to start growing in North
Florida.
In a visit to the Suwannee
County Museum, ELf student
Destiny Perrin said there was
a 1950s telephone on exhibit.
"They let one student 'talk
.on the old-fashioned tele-
phone," Perrin said. "It was
like a big machine. It had a loi
more gadgets than we have
now and you had to dial the
operator."
The museum's director Car-
ol Herring took students back
in time to the history of
Suwannee County and
showed off historical memo-
rabilia.
Branford students visited
Leon and Shirley Hatch foi
some fact finding about Bran.

Leon'Hatch told the children
memories about his dad pro-
Sding firewood for the steam-
boats that were anchored a
Hatch Landing behind his
childhood .home. Shirley
JHatch, editor of the Branforc
News, shared her experiences
about managing a newspaper.
"Though our class didn'
visit the newspaper, the scrip
said Mrs. Hatch writes it anc
then it goes through a machine
and copies and it prints,'
Brothers said.
Richmond said the ELP ob.
trained a grant that covered the
cost of a camera, film, tripoc
ad editing program for the
project.
During the' venture of mak
ing the film, ELP students
learned a valuable lesson
about giving back to the com-
munity. They witnessed firs

and individuals have usec
their talents and abilities tc
serve the, community an(

the issue. Wooleyr told the Commission that ,
$2.5 million had been appropriated for DOC
siting and engineering for the prison. Wooley
said this is only money appropriated this year
for siting and engineering work and is not a
guarantee for the future, as each Legislature
must make.those appropriations. Wooley said
the county has a meeting scheduled for May
23 with DOC to "discuss issues DOC is bring-
ing forward to us about the Wellborn water
system," which is not owned by the county
but may can be used to supply water to the
prison. The Wellborn water system is located
in Wellborn, just a mile or so east of the pro-
posed prison site which is on the south side of
US' 90 east of Live Oak and Houston. Wooley
said DOC is also talking with the city of Live
Oak about gas, (re-used) water and sewer ser-
vices.
City Manager Bob Farley said DOC agreed
verbally May 16 to use jeclairied water from
the city. "They agreed they would use it for '2
flushing toilets, irrigation and laundry if avail-
able," Farley said May 17. However, he noted
the agreement is "all verbal" and is not in
writing at this point. Farley said the city met
with Knepper and Richard Creech of Creech
Engineers.
"We talked about facilities, water, sewer
and possibly gas and wastewater," Farley stat-
ed. "We told them where our connections
point is and what the city has available," Far-
ley noted. "Their engineers are going back to
study this issue."
The city just broke ground last week for its
new $7.8 million waste water treatment plant
and has gotten $2 million plus an additional
$1 million from the state arid a $500,000
CIBRS grant to convert their sprayfields over
to reclaimed waste water, which will be sold
to users.
The possibility of a prison has been ongoing
since the early 90s when -various people began
trying to get it approved, Opponents blocked it
once in 1994. Again in 1999 an attempt was
made to stop it, but the county voted at that
time to' issue a special permit to allow the zon-
ing to be changed from Agriculture 1 to Public
Facility for a prison. The previous owner had
already been allowed to change the land use
from Ag 1 to Public. The board at that time,
consisting of Commissioners Doug Udell,
Robert Taylor, Jerry' Scott, Don Odom and Bar-
ry Baker, voted unanimously for the zoning
change.
In 2004, after the county had handed the
property over to the state and the state refunded
the county one half of its purchase price, offi-
cials waited patiently for the prison to be con-


structed. Commissioners began questioning:
why the prison wasn't a reality. State Rep.
Dwight Stansel began working on the problem
and said in December'of 2004 that then DOC
Secretary James V Crosby Jr. 'A oild aiinoinitce
in January of 2005 plans for the prison.
It never happened. ,
The construction of the planned 1,499-bed
prison was estimated to have a construction
cost of $47.8 million; a $10.5 million yearly
payroll was expected to begin in the fall of
2003.
Now, three years later, the wait is on again
and hopes are riding high Suwannee County
will finally have a prison where the economic
impact will be in the millions and provide 400
,plus state jobs initially.'
"Money is allocated in the (state) budget to
do a site study and determine infrastructure
needs," said Suwannee County Commission
Vice-Chairman Randy Hafch. "It will require
total utilities in there. Suwannee County is the
et one iip for a pri'n irid h:s been foi illr,
aidst tlhre ,'eais, but theile's been o aw \ fil lot of
pressure in Tallahassee to expand the old pris-
ons," Hatch said. "If they put it anywhere but
Suwannee County, it'll'be for political reasons."
However, Hatch said he's pleased the project
has had $2.5 million appropriated to do site
and engineering work, enhancing the possibili-
ty a prison will actually be built in Suwannee
County.
"The biggest unanswered questions are water
and sewage," Hatch said. "$2.5 million makes
is unlikely they will back out, but nothing is
impossible."
Hatch said he's looking.towards the future
and it's time for Suwannee County to move
forward and move fast to be ready for the
growth that will come with the prison. "It's
time for Suwannee County to realize that even
though we may be solvent now, we need to be
investing in infrastructure like Madison has
done at Interstate 10 and SR 53," he said.
"With the prison out there in Wellborn, that
gives us a whole lot more horsepower out at
the Wellborn Interstate 10 and Interstate 75 in-
terchanges ,in seeking grants," Hatch said.
Hatch suggested it might be best to regionalize
a utility to serve that entire area and promote
growth on a regional basis.
Employees who will work at the prison will
likely come from all surrounding counties as
well as Suwannee, creating more traffic, more
opportunity for business in the Wellborn area
and greater tax revenues for the county.
Commission Chairman Ivie Fowler was un-
available for comment at press time.

ences from her first year of col-
lege.
'She said even though she had
a rigorous course load, she was
able to maintain a 4.0 average.
Pecina expressed her appreci-
ation for the scholarship saying
it left her free to focus on her
studies, without the need of a
job.
Mike Jones and Robert Jones,
sons of the late Marvin Jones,

"It is a privilege to be a part of
helping these bright, young stu-
dents," they both commented.

"beefing up" curriculum at the
middle school to help achieve
.that goal.

man, Rebecca Lawson, Nicole
McDaniels and Curran
Schenck.
Past recipients of the Marvin

students were presented with
scholarship renewals for the up-

Michael Mobley, Joseph King
and Nereyda Pecina.
The suspense mounted as the
time came to announce which
SHS Finalist would be awarded
the 2006 Marvin E. Jones
Scholarship.
Carter said it is always a diffi-
cult decision for the trustees to
choose from all of the well-
qualified students who apply,
but this year it was particularly
difficult to make the final deci-
sion.
Finalists Taylor Abercrombie
and Anna Lauren Land were
each awarded a one-time schol-
arship of $2,000. The 2006 four-
year scholarship was awarded to
Kerry Jo Melland.
These scholarships are anoth-
er example of how a legacy of
generosity can outlive benefac-
tors who carefully choose how
to handle their resources.

NFCC students host American Ethnic Heritage Fair


Students in North Flori-
da Community College's
Race and Ethnicity course
showed off their knowl-
edge of international cul-
tures during the American
Ethnic Heritage Fair on.
April 20 in the NFCC Stu-
dent Center. Seven booths
provided a wealth of infor-
mation On Latin, African,
Asian, Italian, Jamaican,
Jewish. and European cul-
tures and the influence of
those cultures in American
ethnic communities.
Sounds of music and aro-
mas of international cuisine
greeted visitors to. the ex-
hibit. Three musicians
played hand drums at the
African culture display and
across the room the beat of
reggae music poured out of


a display featuring Ja-
maican, Caribbean and
Haitian cultures. Booths
also offered foods or recipes
unique to the featured
countries and displayed in-
formation about the people,
industries, religions and
customs of the area.
According to instructor
Andrea Oliver, the heritage
,fair allows students the op-
portunity to transform
what they have learned in
the classroom into a cre-
ative, informative exhibit
for the campus and the
public..

UF/IFAS to host its annual Twilight .. I I


Field Day with a daytime twist


The University of

Agricultural Sciences
(UF/IFAS) will host its annu-
al Twilight Field Day at the
North Florida Research and
Education Center in 'Suwan-.
nee Valley (NFREC-SV) lo-
cated at CR 417, on Tuesday,
May 23. This year there will
also be a special program that
begins at 2 p.m., with the reg-
ular field day beginning with
dinner at 5 p.m.
Attendees can choose two
of the five tours: "Protected
Culture, Hydroponics, Field
Cut Flowers/Grasses and De-
signer Vegetables," "Fruit and
Nut Crops for North Florida,"
"Vegetable and Agronomic
Crop BMPs," "On-Farm Pond
Management," and "Forestry
and Wildlife Management."
Twilight Field Day is an
opportunity for commercial
growers-small and large, mas-
ter gardeners, and other agri-
cultural enthusiasts, to learn
about the most recent
UF/IFAS research and devel-
opment, including the latest
varieties, new cultural prac-
tices and management tech-
niques.
"By attending the Field
Day, growers will be able to
see how to diversify the farm
by considering new enterpris-
es -and also how to make the
most. efficient use of natural
resources already on the
farm,'? said Bob Hochmuth, a
UF/IFAS multi-county exten-
sion;agent at.NFREC-SV.
The special daytime pro-
gram, "Finding Niche Mar-
kets," which will be held
from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., will
give growers a chance to
learn about marketing oppor-
tunities for their operation.
"Marketing is the key to
any successful enterprise,"
said Linda Landrum, a
UF/IFAS, multi-county exten-
sion agent at NFREC-SV. "By
attending the niche marketing
seminar, participants will un-
derstand basic marketing
strategies, help them to iden-
tify direct marketing opportu-
nities and network with other
farmers interested in similar
marketing opportunities."
Registration, which in-
cludes the niche marketing
seminar, dinner, tour program
booklet, refreshments and
other materials, is $15 per

Bronson activates
price gouging
hotline following
wildfire emergency
declaration
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronsop has ordered
the activation of the Depart-
ment's price gouging hotline to
assist consumers who may face
problems resulting from the
wildfires. The price gouging law
was activated after Governor Jeb
Bush issued an emergency dec-
laration due to the wildfires and
the ongoing wildfire threat
statewide.
The price gouging law takes
effect during any declared state
of emergency and the Depart-
ment receives and investigates
complaints.
Under Florida law, it is illegal
to charge exorbitant or excessive
prices for essential items includ-
ing gasoline, shelter, food, water,
ice, batteries, generators or lum-
ber during a declared emergency
unless the price increases can be
attributed to additional costs in-
curred by the retailer.
"People have been forced to
evacuate as a result of these
wildfires and may need tempo-
rary shelter and gasoline. The
hotline is activated during any
declared emergency and I urge


people who think they may have
been victimized to contact the
hotline toll-free at 800-HELP
FLA (800-435-7352)."
Individuals or businesses
found to have been involved in
price gouging activities face
fines of up' to $1,000 per viola-
tion, or up to a maximum of
$25,000 a day.

marketing seminar is limited
to the first 25 reservations, so

Williston is coming to town

"It's been a good spring so far." -Coach Bobby Bennett


Janet Schrader
Democrat RepQrter
Williston is coming to Live Oak for the
.annual spring football game, May 20 and ,:
they're bringing their 6',5" quarterback \x ith
them. According to Suvwannee football
coach Bobby Bennett; most of the Williston
players from last year are back and they ,,
look pretty good.
Sti.anItnee football held a Green and


White scriniimage last Friday Bennett said
they are going to emphasize being very
ph', sical and running the ball for the spring
game. ;
Bennett thought running backs Brandon
Allen and Jarrett Yulee looked good during
the Green and White game. He said Clay
Kinard had a good run as well
Bennett said Willision \\will be going to a
.more Georgia-Southern-type offense this
year \ which is a double-slot offense. Bennett
said a double-slot is almost a wishbone out


of a one-back set.
The Dogs will run the ball for the most
part against \\illiston according to Bennett,
with a little bit of passing.
"We're going to limit what we try to
throw," Bennett said. "We'll do a little'dr-op-
back passing and a little sprint-out passing.
Williston's defense has some size accord-
itig to Bennett. "Most of the kids coming
back this \ear have some good size." Ben-
nett said.
For Su\%annee's defense the big boys this


year will be returning defensive tackle Jon
Snyder and new-guy Mario Collins. Collins;
will play defensive end and looks pretty
big.
The Dogs will have Kenny Clayton and
Keith Brown running pass protection. They
are both back from last year.
"It's been a good spring so far," Bennett
said.,
Game time for Saturda. 's game is 7 p.m.
Come out and show your support for the
Sutmannee Bulldogs. Go Dogs!

tinue in the district, it will be
very difficult to make it to
the next level.
The draw for who plays
against who was not very fa-
vorable for the Suwannee
boys team. Three of the sev-
en first round matches w.er,,
ag.ia i d, t ,., ,tnl. .'lNliui lJi'o-
hata, a foreign exchange stu-
dent from Japan, made his ,
way into the second day fi-
nals. Hirohata won his first
two matches against Perry
and Rickards, eventually los-
ing to Bay 6-0, 6-1.
The girls team fared better
in their draw, only having to
face Bay once in first round
competition. Number one
Lauren Michal reached the fi-
nals as anticipated, but lost to
a very strong player from
Bay. Lauren is .only a fresh-
man, but the Bay girl is only
a sophomore. They will more
than likely meet tip again
during the next two years.
After the first day of dis-
tricts, the teams held their
awards dinner at the Outback
in Tallahassee on their way
home. A great meal was en-
joyed by all, and there were
even a few awards given out.
For the boys team, fresh-
man Tyler Winburn won the
Most Improved Award. Tyler
improved steadily throughout
the season and will probably
move into the number five
spot for next season if I he
keeps on progressing.
Junior Steven Pate was the


winner of the Coaches
Award. Steven has an ex-
tremely positive attitude and
also never gives up in any of
his matches. He was and will
be a huge asset to the team in
2007.
Freshman John Walt Boa-
tright received the Bright Fu-
ture Aw id.J 'iLhni plil ed ,
n iinl'i.' 1i_ 1. A".I il''iti lilW l
entire year, winning over
80% of his matches. He has
worked extremely hard dur-
ing the last three years to get
to his current ability level,
and we are looking for great
things from him in the next
three-years.
For the girls squad, junior
Michelle Poole took home
the Most Improved Award.
Michelle only took up tennis
at the beginning of last sea-
son, but has dramatically im-
proved every aspect of her
game. She should move up
into the starting five next
season if she continues on the
path she is on now.
A big, welcome surprise
this year to the girls' team
was sophomore Brittney Lax-
ton. Brittney received the
Coach's award, but was also
up for the Most Improved
award. She exhibited a su-
perb attitude throughout the
season, and received many
positive words from the op-
posing coaches and players.
She has shown the most po-
tential on the team, and with
some hard work during the
offseason, she will continue
to move on up from the num-


ber five spot.
The Bright Future Award r
went to Freshman Lauren r
Michal. Lauren played in the,
number one position all year
and never lost a single match.
She played some very diffi-
cult opponents, from Colum-
bia, Wakulla, and Aucilla i
Christiag t,;narme i4 feq, I
kept :hJe. fog.s, playing some; r
great tennis. She truly is r
"The future of Suwannee ten-
nis," and will be for the next
three years.
The graduating seniors
were also recognized during t
the awards. They all were I
given black travel bags with:
their names embroidered on
them. The 2006 seniors are
Cameron Ridgeway, J.D. ,
Hales. Prissy Crapps, Nikki i
Johnson and Angela Debono-
We wish them much happi- i
ness for their future.
The boys squad returns
four of their top five players;
and should be very strong in
2007. This possibly could bet
the best boys team Suwanneq
has had in the last five years.
The girls will still be on
the young side, but showed ;
quite a bit of potential during
the last six weeks of the sea-.
son.They return three of the
top five players on the team.
Both teams, parents, and -
the coaches would like to
thank all of the sponsors who
donated money or supplies
during the season. The year
would not have been the suc-
cess it was without their help.

Keaton Beach Fishing Report May 12-13


The Perry Optimist 15th
Annual Saltwater Tourna-
ment was a grand success,
despite a dubious beginning,
as the weather was ugly
right before daylight briefly,
yet turned off beautiful for
the day.
I would like take this op-
portunity to thank all of the
folks who so generously
contributed to the Captains'
Bags for this year's event.
Thanks to Vera Shiver of
Bass Assassin, Bill Hall, of
Precision Tackle, Eric Bach-
nik of MirrOlure, Dick and
Phillip Henry of Sea Striker,
Robert Canavan of Icecus,
Charles Kori of BiteABait, T.
J. Stallings of TTI Industries,
Wright McGill (Eagle Claw),
Dawn Taylor of Perry-Tay-
lor County Chamber of
Commerce, Joel and Tracie
Singletary of Sea Tow
(Keaton Beach Marina)
Mark Wiggins of Yarbrough
Tire, John Haskins of Perry
Hardees, and Sue Wise of
Capital City Bank. The bags
were very much praised and
appreciated. Again, I thank
each and every one of you


for your generous contribu-
tions and continued support
of this charity endeavor.
The fishing was grand as
well and everyone I talked
to who fished in the tourney
on the flats caught fish, al-
beit only one winner caught
the largest trout, Billy Joe
Woods of Perry with a 6.4
pound trout caught on a
gold Cordell Redfin plug in
less than three feet of water.
Others I spoke to caught
fish on a variety of plugs in-
cluding the MirrOlures,
Thunder-Spins, BiteA Bait
Fighters and Walkers, and
the Red Daddys which were
all in the Captain's Bags.
Some folks fished with live
pinfish under Cajuns and
caught trout and reds as
well. Overall I believe a
good time was had by all!
I had Bert Deener and his
Dad Herbert fishing with
me Thursday and Friday be-
fore the tourney, and we
caught 15 trout Thursday,
five, on live pinfish under
Cajuns (Herb) then Bert and
I fished with BiteABait fight-
ers and Rapid Shads to land


, 10 trout up to 3.5 pounds in
water 4-6 feet deep late
Thursday afternoon.- Friday
we had Charles Kori of Bite-
ABaif Inc. with Bert and I
and managed to land seven
trout on Fighters, SlimLines
and Rapid Shads. Bert had
three trout, a 18.5", 19" and
21" on three consecutive
casts while throwing an As-
sassin Calcasieu eel under a
2.5 oval Cajun Thunder,
upon my urging him to try
it?
The unsettled weather of
late has made trout fishing
strange to difficult, but the
bite is there if you work for
it. Live pinfish under Cajuns
have proved, once again, to
be the most reliable way to
get a limit. However, some
willing to fish artificial will
do well in 5-6 feet.late in the
incoming tide. The after-
noon Southwest w-i-n-d-s
have hampered the falling
tide "bite" if there is one?
Good Luck and remember
to stop in and enter the
weekly $5 each "largest
five" trout tourney at
Keaton Beach Marina.

Sportsman Channel has re-
cently re-broadcast the
show and it is now avail-
able in Canada and the re-. -,
publics of the former Soviet .
Union.
S"With this podcast, we

could with a 30-minute
weekly television show-
which actually includes a
mere 20+ minutes of actual
b
program material," said
Hageseth, the show's cre- i
ator and host. "This tech--
nology allows a broad au-
dience to enjoy the shows
at their convenience." [,
Podcast viewers don't
even need an MP3 player,
only a computer with inter-
net access. Podcasts also
can be downloaded from
the "Bird Dogs Forever"
website and transferred to
an MP3 player such as an
Apple iPod, Dell DJ or Cre-
ative Zen.
Hageseth also hosts the
"Bird Dogs Forever" web-

A negative person is said to
'say when he looks at a half cup
of water, "I see a cup half emp-
ty" while a person, positive in
his out look, will look at the
,same half cup of water and say,
"I see a cup half full!" As a
Christian you should have a
positive attitude and see the
"up-side" of life's circum-
stances. You must remember, as
a friend of mine reminded me,
"Our circumstances are Gods
opportunities.". The circum-
stances you find yourself in to-
day are tailor made just for you.

cently that Hope

This award is a pres-

tends Suwannee Mid-

school. She will appear
in the United States
Academy's, Official
Yearbook which is pub-
lished nationally.
"Recognizing and
supporting our youth


is more important than
ever before in Ameri-
ca's history. Certainly,
United States Achieve-
ment Academy winners
should be congratulat-
ed and appreciated for
their dedication to ex-
cellence and achieve-
ment," said United
States Achievement
Academy Founder Dr.
George Stevens.
The Academy selects
USAA winners upon


the exclusive recom-
mendation of teachers,
coaches, counselors
and other qualified
sponsors and upon the
Standards of Selections
set forth, by the Acade-
my. The criteria for se-
lectiort are a student's
academic performance,
interest and aptitude,
leadership qualities,
responsibility, enthusi-
asm, motivation to
learn and improve, citi-


zenship, attitude and
cooperative spirit, de-
pendability and recom-
mendation from a qual-
ified sponsor.
Chambers is the
daughter of Brent and
Jeanette Chambers of
Live Oak. Her grand-
parents are Weldon
and Faye Chambers of
.Live Oak and Elizabeth
Barfuss of Live Oak
and the late Fred Bar-
fuss.

Help yourself


by helping


others


~iitI'


It is a most fortunate fact that altruism
seems to be built into human nature. Not
only does this happy fact make it likely that
we will help our fellow human beings in
their times of need, but it also tends to
make us 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
who arc excessively devoted to advancing
their ow-n happiness usually are not very
happy. Ilappiness is a natural byproduct of
helping others and the happiest people are
usually those \\ho are most devoted to
helping others. Consider Mother Teresa,
Mahatma Gandhi, or the Dalai Lama; it is
no coincidence that their lives of selfless
devotion to relieving human misery are also
examples of supreme happiness. We are
made by God to serve others and will be
most content and at peace when we devote
ourselves to that service. We should reflect
on what way we are best able to serve
humanity, and then implement this into
our lives.


SSo we are to use our different gifts in
accordance with the grace that God
has given us...whoever shows kindness

National Hurricane Preparedness


The 2005 Atlantic hurri-
cane season was the
busiest on record with 27
named storms and 15 hur-
ricanes, seven of which
were category three or
higher. With the potential
increase in, hurricane ac-
tivity for 2006, being
aware and prepared is the
key to keeping you and
your family safe. As we
approach "National Hurri-
cane Preparedness Week,"
May 21-27, the' Disaster
Survival House, located in
Deerfield Beach, is geared
up to educate and inform
residents and visitors on
how to properly plan, and
prepare for hurricane sea-
son.

ricane capital of the .
country," says Erik

ative both for fami-
lies and businesses.
Now is the time to.
review your hurri-
cane preparedness
plan: Where will you.
and your family go
when severe weather
threatens? Have you

The allergy sufferers' guide to gardening


Actor and Gardening
Enthusiast Dean Cain
offers tips for creating
a "sneeze-free" garden
(ARA) According to
the American Academy
of Allergy, Asthma and
Immunology, more
than 35 million people
suffer from allergies
which may prohibit
them from
participating in many
outdoor activities,
including gardening.
Notable film and
television star Dean
Cain is one of them.
"I love spending
time outside,
especially with my
four year-old son,"
comments Cain, "but
my allergies prevent
me.from enjoying
some of our favorite
outdoor hobbies. One
of our favorite things
to do every morning is
to pick fresh oranges
from our orange trees
and cut fresh flowers
from the garden. By
creating an allergy-
friendly environment
and taking a proven
effective medication
like Benadryl to
", relieve my allergy
symptoms, I can enjoy
outdoor activities
without any
problems."
Dean offers the
following advice for
gardening enthusiasts
to helpltyhepn, get down
and dirty inthe
garden, while
minimizing their
allergy symptoms:
Check the Pollen
Count-- Avoid
gardening between 5
and 10:00, when
pollen levels are at
their highest. Visit
www.benadrylusa.com
daily to check the
pollen count in your
local area.
What's the Weather?
-- Avoid spending
time in the garden
when it is windy
outside. The wind
stirs up pollen and
spreads it throughout
the garden, which can
exasperate your
allergies.
Arm Yourself --
Allergy sufferers
should have a proven
effective medicine,
such as Benadryl
Allergy, on hand to
relieve their worst
symptoms like
sneezing, coughing,
itchy and watery eyes,
runny nose and itchy
throat.
Protect Yourself --
Wearing a mask and
protective goggles
when gardening will'
help protect your .
mouth and eyes from
coming in contact with
allergens in the air,
such as tree, weed and


grass pollens.
Use the Right Plants
-- Avoid using plants
that have small
flowers; they tend to
produce more pollen.
Try using tulips,
begonias, roses or


daffodils. Refrain from
using male trees and
shrubs, in your garden
since they are the only
sex that produces
pollen. Consult your
local gardening shop to
determine if a plant is
male or female.
Water Frequently --
Regularly water the


garden's soil to keep
allergens from rising.
Also, replace straw
with black plastic
mulch, rocks or gravel.
Wash Away Allergens
-- After spending time
in the garden, be sure
to thoroughly rinse
your hands, clothes and
hair. Allergens from


outside can easily be
carried into your home
continuing to aggravate
your allergies.

gardening tips, please
