PANDEMICS: How

would it impact you?

Leaders plan for worst
case scenario


Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter
If you think the govem-
iment will always be there to
take care of you when you're
sick, think again.
Community leaders and
representatives from many_
agencies and businesses
made dialogue about this is-
sue in a meeting May 25.
The event was part of an ef-
fort to develop a task force to
identify what Suwanneer
County needs to do to plan
for possible influenza out-
breaks and other pandemics.
THE DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN COMMON
DISASTERS AND PAN-
DEMICS
One key point in the dis-
cussion was the difference in
terms of impacts on a com-
munity between common
disasters and pandemics.
Kavin Catalfu, public
health response preparedness


director for the Columbia
County Health Department,
said a pandemic is not just a
health-related issue as many
perceive.
It involves everybody,
trickling down to every per-
son and business in the com-
murutn
Catalfu said in the worst
case scenario during a pan-
demic outbreak, schools and
businesses could be closed.
Public gatherings could
come to a halt. The sick
could be isolated voluntarily
or legally mandated, and
those exposed could be quar-
antined.
THE NEED FOR
EVERY CITIZEN AND
BUSINESS TO HAVE
EMERGENCY PLANS IN
PLACE
Discussed was the need
for citizens and businesses to
have emergency manage-
ment plans in place. Current-

June 1 deadline for 2006-Crop Direct and

Countercyclical Payment (DCP) Program


Farmers are reminded of the
sign-up deadline for 2006-Crop'
Direct and Countercyclical Pay-
ment (DCP) Program. Agricul-
tural producers have until June
1,.to sign up for the 2006-crop
Direct and Counter-cyclical
Payment Program (DCP), said
Kevin Kelley, SED.
USDA will accept late-filed
DCP applications through Sept.
30, 2006, if accompanied by a
$100 late fee. Producers will be
unable to apply for 2006 DCP
payments after Sept. 30, 2006.
Sign-up for the 2006 DCP began
Oct. 1, 2005.
"I encourage farmers and
growers to sign up for DCP by
June 1 by visiting a USDA Farm
Service Agency office or by us-
ing the convenient on-line DCP
service," said Kelley "This pro-
gram plays an important role in
providing producers income
support."
The program provides pay-
ments to eligible owners, opera-
tors, landlords, tenants, or share-
croppers on farms enrolled for
the 2002 through 2007 crop
years. There are two types of
DCP payments-direct payments
and counter-cyclical payments.
Direct payments are tied to
acreage bases and yields. Be-
cause direct payments provide
no incentive to increase produc-
tion of any certain crop, the pay-
ments support farm income
without distorting producers'
current production decisions.
Counter-cyclical payments
provide support counter to the

Suwannee River floating just

Deputy Ron Colvin and John
Hale used a boat to recover
Earl's body.
The search began Saturday,
May 27 after Earl's girlfriend,
Tessla Plunkett, also of Atlantic.
Beach;-reported thatvsh6 and-
Earl were penridiig the Memo-
rial Day weekend at the Music
Park and were swimming at the
Music Park's sandbar when she
noticed that Earl. has walked up
the embankment toward the


cycle of market prices as part of
a "safety net" in the event of low
crop prices. Counter-cyclical
payments for a commodity are
only issued if the effective price
for a commodity is below the
target price for the commodity.
The 2002 Farm Bill requires
producers sign annual contracts
through 2007 to participate in
DCP. Producers may choose not
to participate in DCP in any
year. USDA has issued mote
than $28 billion in DCP pay-



$100 late fee

for late-filed

applications


ments to producers since the
program began in October 2002.
On-line DCP sign-up
Producers may also sign up
for DCP on-line at
http://www.fsa.usda.gov/egov/e,
dcp_default.htm. Applicants
must have an active USDA eAu-
thentication Level 2 account to
use the service. This requires
filling out an on-line registration
form at
http://www.eauth.egov.usda.gov
and visiting the local Farm Ser-
vice Agency (FSA) office for
identity verification. Your local
office is located at US 129
South, Live Oak at 386-362-

up for the parade at 8:30 a.m.

ous years. Judges will rate the

for Saturday is a youth pie-eat-
ing contest where kids will de-


producers to choose 2006 DCP
payment options, assign crop
shares, as well as sign and sub-
mit their contracts over the In-
ternet. The service was designed
to reduce paperwork and speed
up contract processing at FSA
offices.
The DCP was authorized by
the Farm Security and Rural In-
vestment Act of 2002 (2002
Farm Bill) and is administered
by the US Department of Agri-
culture's Farm Service Agency
(USDA-FSA).

Q: What is an oral irrigating device?
A. An oral irrigating device uses pulsating jets of
water to help clean around the gum line and
between teeth. It's an excellent supplement to
brushing and flossing and helps clean spots
neither of those two methods reaches. Although
they are not recommended for children under 12,
oral Irrigators can benefit both teenagers and
older patients. For youngsters -- or adults -- with
braces, the strong streams of water are
extremely helpful in flushing food particles. For
older patients who may have gum problems, the
water provides a massage and stimulates
circulation.
The devices come in two types: the electric-
powered and the type that attaches to a faucet.
With the electric model, most dentists agree, it is
easier to regulate water pressure and
temperature.
Irrigating does not take the place of brushing and
flossing. But after you're done brushing and
flossing, irrigating is an excellent way to flush out
any remaining debris. At your next exam, ask
about oral irrigating devices. Your dentist can
give you more information.

gravesites of "debris" (put
there by families and loved
ones in honor of their deceased
loved one) so employees can
mow without interference.
Many of the trees that are
tagged were planted by owners
of cemetery lots, but under
current rules adopted April 11
by the City Council, the city
has the right to make any
changes it chooses, including
cutting or trimming any trees
or shrubbery and removing
anything at gravesites that gets
in the way of mowing.
A number of people have al-
ready visited the cemetery and
have been astonished to find
the changes in the cemetery.
One woman, who asked not to
be identified, said she arrived
at the cemetery last week to
find trees she planted at a rela-
tive's grayesite marked for cut-
ting. She said she was horri-
fied.
The new rules are what led
to the city contracted coinpany
of OMI tagging the trees last
week.
Although OMI is a private
company contracting with the
city to do city work, decisions
regarding what will and will
not be done involving city pro-
jects and property still lies with
the five-metmber elected Live
Oak City Council.
According to Live Oak Pub-
lic Works Director Tommy
'Cundiff, those trees marked
with green tags are to be cut,
while those marked with red
(or pink) are to be trimmed. A
trip through the cemetery .
shows that cedar, magnolia and
holly trees are among those
marked, some decades old.
Cundiff said as of yesterday,
May 30, the plans to cut and
trim the trees have been put on
hold until the July 11 Live Oak
City Council meeting.
At that meeting, two new
City Council members, John
Hale and Mark Stewart, will be
sworn in and,begin haing a ,.
sayjwisesues. The posiriron of
president of the City Council
will also be up for re-election.
That position is currently held
by Don Boyette.
Hale said he had told OMI
the finger would be pointing at
them if they cut the trees be-
fore he can get on the City
Council and make his wishes
known. "It isn't going to hap-
pen," Hale said of the remov-
ing of trees in good condition.
"What they are intending on
doing is a desecration," Hale
said. Hale said he has no prob-
lem with cutting or trimming
dead, dying or diseased trees,
but he does not want to destroy
the city's beautiful cemetery by
cutting trees for no reason oth-
er than the bottom line.
OMI is a private contractor
the city has hired to handle its
public works operation. When
the company took over last
year, all city employees under

its jurisdiction became em-
ployees of OMI. The for-profit
company recently entered into
a new contract to continue its.
work for the city, which in-
cludes city cemetery upkeep.

concerns regarding the changes

cil regarding this issue, you

Risk of wildfires continues


The Florida
Interagency
Wildland Fire ,
Prevention
Education
Team has
been visiting
communities
in Columbia,
Suwannee,
Bradford, Baker, Hamilton
and Union Counties to in-
crease the awareness of the
potential for wildfires.
Weather conditions con-
tinue to be hot and dry, and
*rain events over the past
few days has not been
enough to eliminate the
danger. Predicted thunder-
storms may bring more
lightning that can cause
wildfires, Bradford and
Union counties have initiat-
ed residential burn bans,
which remain in effect.
The team visits local com-
munities, officials, business-
es, events, fairs, and schools
to circulate information


about ,pre-
\!I \venting wild-
fires. They
also work
with local tele-
vision, radio
and newspa-
per media to
provide infor-
mation to the
public.
For those counties that do
not yet have burn bans in ef-
fect, the team suggests these
safety tips for area residents:
Contact your local fire
control agency before burn-
ing at 386-758-5700.
Prune trees and shrubs
away from your home and
remove all dry debris from
around your house.
Keep driveways open
so firefighters can access
your property.
Report all wildfire im-
mediately to your local fire
control agency or 911.
Report arson fires toll

The remaining days are
but a few 'til the Wellborn
Community Association's
(WCA) 13th Annual Blue-
berry Festival takes over the
outback. The 'WCA festival
begins Friday, June 2 and
continues thru Saturday,
June 3, and is sure to offer
something for the entire
family. So, if you like good
entertainment, hand-made
arts and crafts, a smorgas-
bord of titillating foods
cooked by chefs from far
and wide, the Wellborn out-
back is the place to be this
coming week-end.
Activities will begin Fri-
day at 3 p.m., with registra-
tion for the prize winning
Blueberry Cook-off judging.
The event takes place in the
WCA's air conditioned
meeting center. To qualify
for the 6 p.m. judging, andl
the awarding of prizes to
participating contestants, all
entries shouldibe in no later
than 5 p.m.. After the judg-
ing is completed and awards
are given to the winners,
The Taste of Wellborn Tast-
ing Party will begin at 6:30
p.m. A plate of tasty blue-
berry treats cost only $3 per
plate. Outside activities be-
gin with Regina Fisher tak-
ing center stage at the WCA
gazebo at 6 p.m., where she
nill perform a selection of
gospel mIuvic. Fred Perry
will. take the stage at 6:30
p.m. and will perform a va-'
riety of music ranging from
country to gospel. Entertain-
ment will continue through
out the evening.
Saturday, June 3, the
Blueberry Blast will begin
at 7 a.m.' with the WCA's
world famous blueberry


pancake breakfast. Arrive
early, because the lines are
long, and if you snooze
you'll lose. Lots of family
fun is in store for those at-
tending this year's festival.
Be sure you purchase tickets
if you want a chance to win
the stainless steel gas grill
the WCA will be giving
away as one of its' grand
prizes during this year's fes-
tival. Tickets for the grill
are $1, or you can buy a
book of 10 for $10. Go
ahead, buy a book, or maybe
even two. After all, the more
tickets you buy, the better-
your odds of winning that
beautiful grill, or one of the
score other prizes that will
be given away during the
festive day.
The festival will feature
lots of activities for children
and youth of all ages, like
the messy but fun pie-eating
contest, where contestants
gobble up pans of blueberry
pies. The fastest gobbler
wins $15; the second $10;
and third $5.There will also
be a rock climbing wall and
a bungee jump for those
daredevils brave enough to
scale heights unknown or
take a leap of faith, and
plenty of other games for
anyone not yet ready to take
the double dog dare. The
*Wellborn chapter of the Girl
Scouts will be helping out
with the youth activities,
making' sure everyone has a
great time.
How about some Cow
Plop Bingo (CPB)? CPB
should be self-explanatory,
but, just in case some folks
new to our area don't quite
understand the fun and
games of the outback, let me


try to explain as simple as I
know how: A portable hold-
ing pin is erected. For this
wondrous event the guest of
honor, a bovine of dubious
distinction, is led into the
waiting accommodations,
where it will graze while its'
human counterparts wait ...
until ... you got it ... the
plop drops. Tickets are $5
each, and whoever holds the
number on which the cow,
you know, plops, wins the
grand.prize of $1,000. This
by far has become one of the
festival's favorites. And why
not? Some lucky somebody
always comes, out smelling
like a rose, so to speak, by
winning $1,000 without get-
ting one drop of plop on
them.
And don't forget the pa-
rade. Its theme this year is
"Summer Fun." Parade
Chairman Bobbi Fenderson
asks that participants be in
line no later than 8:30 a.m.
Line-up is on the north cor-
ner of US 90 and CR 137,
across from the B & B Food
Store. The parade will begin
at 9 a.m. and is much longer
than in previous years. It
will meander along the roads
around the WCA park, then
make its way back to its'
home plate, where floats
will be judged. At 1:30 p.m.
winners will be announced,
and cash prizes will be
awarded to the top three
winners: $25 to first place;
$15 to second place; and $10
to third place.
Remember to visit the
country store. It's the only
place you can buy home-
made blueberry pies,
muffins, cookies, syrup and
blueberry cobbler, served
,\ iti or without vanilla ice
cream;.:.
lHope to see you at Blue-
berry Square. In the mean-
time, remember to pray for
our troops and their fami-
lies. Be kind to the wayfar-
ing stranger, and help a
neighbor in need. Tell those
you love that you love them.
Happy trails. And as always,
may God bless.

BIBLE VERSE

"Come unto me, all ye that labour
and are heavy laden, and I will
give you rest."

Publisher Democrat editorial board are Myra

OUR VIEW

Voters should hold elected

officials responsible
City of Live Oak voters have long given the
impression they don't care how their city is
runor who runs it. Voters don't turn out when
city seats are up for election, they rarely show
up for city meetings.
It's time for those city voters to rise up and
be counted or they may learn too late that
trees that make the Live Oak Cemetery beauti-
ful have been destroyed...by the city. And that
includes in the near future the Eastside Ceme-
tery.
Trees all over the Live Oak Cemetery are
now tagged for cutting and pruning and
pruning in the city almost always means
butchering the.. trees that will take out
decades old magnolias and cedars and holly
trees to name a few.
It would be a decimation of the beauty that
took Nature years to produce.
Yes, there are some trees that need pruning
and a few may need to be removed because of
disease. But there are many, many more
tagged that should never have been tagged
nor should they be cut down by anyone.
Already the city is enacting its new plan to
streamline caring for the cemetery that in-
cludes taking and trashing items found on
gravesites that are a hindrance to quickly
mowing,the cemetery. Some who place items
at grave sites say they feel the city is treading
on dangerous grounds when it gets involved
in such practices.
Some families who have .purchased lots at
the cemetery have deeds...the city could be in
violation if they go onto those sites to remove
anything. Once the city saw that giving deeds
could lead to problems...they now give out
"certificates."
It's time for voters to rise up and cry foul
over actions of the elected officials in the city!
Not only should the voters hold their elected
officials Mayor Sonny Nobles, Council Presi-
dent Don Boyette who masterminded the en-
tire new cemetery rules to his liking, Council-
men Ken Duce, John Yulee, George Blake, Ben-
nie Thomas and incoming Councilmen John
Hale and Mark Stewart responsible for keep-
ing the city cemetery beautiful without de-
stroying it. Nobles has put a stop to the cut-
ting and pruning until July 11, but at that 7:30
p.m. meeting, it'll be up to the five Council-
men...Nobles has no vote there.
Putting profit by OMI, a private contractor
Who oversees the city's work, over keeping
our city cemetery beautiful and calming is un-
acceptable. The city should be planting new,
bigger trees everywhere to beautiful our city,
not destroying those that already exist.
Oh, the trees are still there...but it's only a
matter of time if OMI, hired by the city to cov-
er much of its city operation, including the
cemetery care, continues with its plans to cut
down many trees...at the direction of the city.
Live Oak has always been good at getting rid
of its historical buildings, landmarks and
trees. It appears we're still at it. YOU can stop
it if you will. Or, you can do nothing and just
sit there while the trees begin to fall.
Where once stood beautiful old oaks after
all, the name is Live Oak -there stands nothing
in many places of the city now. Although a
tree ordinance exists, it's of little value and
needs to be thrown out and re-done by envi-

SYou, too, can imply a conspiracy


It's not really surprising that so
many people are worked up over
that movie "The Da Vinci
Code." When it comes to things of
religion, dogs and children, some
people can get serious burrs under
their saddles.
Also, one must consider that
some people can only think one
,: layer deep. Keep in mind that 50
Dwain Walden percent of Americans can't find
New York on. a map, so if someone
suggested to them that Leonardo Da Vinci was one of the
12 disciples, they might believe, it. They would never
guess that he was an Italian dude who liked to draw pic-
tures on buildings. "No way, man!"
I'm somewhat amused at all of the discussions on this
movie. Last night I watched one of those television pro-
grams where they brought in several "experts" to digest
this issue. The results were little more than I could have
collected at a barber shop in terms of corroboration of
suspicions. Most of the accompanying footage involved
scenes from old black and white movies about Medieval
times, interjected with a little eerie music. This was to set
the tone. Take that away and all you've got is three guys
with thick glasses and unkempt beards talking about
something they've read.
What Dan Brown has done in this book is called mar-
keting. He plucked an event out of the past and asked
"what if?" We call this stuff fiction. And for 60 percent of
Americans who can't find Iraq on a globe, fiction means
it was just "made up." An example for them would be.
"Huck Finn" and "Tom Sawyer," assuming they have ac-
tually finished reading those adventures.
Now had' Tom Clancey written "The Da Vinci Code"
and somehow had involved a nuclear submarine or a de-
fector from the Kremlin, it would have been just another
* day in tinsel town. Most viewers would have fully em-


Superintendent
of Schools


braced this as fiction.
The Roman Catholic Church is upset over this book ap-
parently because of the conspiracies implied. Another
theory is that the church is. upset because the movie
brought in more gross receipts in two weeks than the
church. But, too, this could be a timely distraction from
the scandal of some priests fondling little boys.
From what I understand, some of .the hullabaloo is all
about the suggestion that Mary Magdalene and Jesus
were intimately involved and that is her sitting on His
right side in the painting of "The Last Supper" and not
the disciple John. If you look closely at that painting, you
will find that this person does look very feminine. Again,
keep in mind that this is a painting, not a photograph.
When it comes to a description of the Last Supper, all we
have to go on is the brief accounts in the New Testament
and Leonardo Da Vinci's rendition. Also keep in mind
that Da Vinci (or Leon, as he might have been called to-
day) was not there. He came along several hundred years
later.
Now for all you up-and-coming novelists who would
like to cash in on the fiction hysteria factor, you can, use
the Dan Brown approach in many venues.
For instance, someone might write a'book titled, "The
Mason-Dixon Lie" or perhaps "Wrong With The Wind."
And in this book, one might suggest that Robert E. Lee
was actually a plant-a spy general of sorts. If you re-
member, he was first offered a contract with the Yankees.
So did he turn it down, or did he assume his role with the
Confederacy to intentionally lead those forces into defeat
and assure a Union win? Did anyone check his bank ac-
count? Has there been adequate reading between the
lines? Did he have a girlfriend up North? See how easy it
is.
That's how it works. Dan Brown has capitalized on
"the tar baby syndrome." Long live capitalism!

SCHOOL

Primary School staff shows its talent


PAGF 10A


On March 31 the staff at Suwannee
Primary School performed a talent show
for all the students to raise money for
Relay For Life. The students were asked to
bring in donations to help the school team
raise money. They were very excited about
the amount of money they brought in to
help the fight this tragic disease. Students
and staff had a wonderful time during the
talent show. The students as of April 7 had
raised $7,345.15. They would like to thank
all of the, parents and community
members who donated to Relay For
Life for Suwannee Primary School.

get sick or stay home to care
for sick family members, what
plans are in place for you to
provide the services you are in
business to provide or do you
shut down?" Catalfu asked the
group.
THE POSSIBILITY OF
STATE AND FEDERAL AS-
SISTANCE NOT BEING
AVAILABLE


Suwannee County Coordina-
tor/Emergency Management
Director Johnny Wooley men-
tioned the dependency a small,
rural county has on state and
federal aide when it comes to
disasters.
"When you're
talking about a pan-
be demic, it's not like a
ind hurricane where you
can call on state and
)n federal aide for assis-
care tance. In a pandemic
Sthe rest of the. nation
l and world would be
to impacted by the same
event. So we're look-
ing at assistance pos-
o be sibly not being avail-
ty able to us," Catalfu
said.
THE POSSI-
BILITY OF ONLY
A MINIMUM LEV-
EL OF LOCAL
SERVICES BEING
AVAILABLE
Many police, fire and rescue
and city officials agreed in the
worst case scenario only a min-
imum level of services would
be available to the community
under a pandemic situation.
Also discussed was the short-
age of first responders available
to assist in such an event. Lead-
ers also emphasized the com-
munity would need to be more
independent from city govern-
ment and health officials and


learn to care for themselves in
terms of health and services.
"What we're dealing with
here that's different from any
other emergency is the lack of
people. In this type of emer-
gency, personnel is the issue.
We're not going to have the
people to respond," Suwannee
County EMS Director Murel
McDonald said.
THE NEED FOR CITI-
ZENS TO BE MORE SELF-
RELIANT AND CARE FOR
THEMSELVES
"Let's face it, we've all seen
this, the general public is not
going to help themselves.
They're going to rely on the
government to help them,"
'Live Oak City Administrator
Bob Farley said.
"They have been trained to
think like this for the last 30-40
years. And it's hard to break
that," said Suwannee County
Economic Alliance President
Dennis Cason.
"We probably need to be
telling people we will not be
able to take care of you, and we
* want to educate you on how
you're going to take care of
yourself. Because in all reality,
we will not be able to take care
of them. The resources are not
going to be there," Wooley
said.
THE REALITY THAT
NOT ALL ORGANIZA-
TIONS AND AGENCIES


ARE INVOLVED YET
Participants discussed that
every local agency should be
involved in planning. And the
group made note of the organi-
zations in the community that
weren't represented at the
meeting. Among the organiza-
tions not represented were local
businesses, mental health care
agencies and faith-based orga-
nizations.
"We are in need of more
team players. We need at least
two people from each organiza-
tion who will go back and edu-
cate their people on the situa-
tion," Catalfu said.
THE REALITY
THERE'S NO WAY TO
PREDICT THE INTENSITY
OF A PANDEMIC OUT-
BREAK
Doctor and medical director
for Suwannee County Health
Department Patrick Woloszyn
said in an influenza outbreak
such as the avian (bird) flu, the
outbreak could be more deadly
than what the community nor-
mally experiences. But, on the
other hand, there's a distinct
possibility everyone could get it
but it actually may be less
deadly than the regular flu
strand.
"There's no way to predict it,
so we plan for the worst," said
Woloszyn.
THE GROUP AIMS TO
SPREAD AWARENESS

According to the Lake City
Police report on the charges,
police were called April 3 to
a Lake City car dealership re-
garding employee theft. Once
there, LCPD Investigator Ja-
son Byrd talked with an em-
ployee there who reported


money was missing and that
Blanchett was a suspect in
the thefts. Initial reports
showed that $3,000 was miss-
ing. Byrd said he interviewed
Blanchett, and she broke
down and "in a hysterical
manner of crying." Byrd said


when asked where she would
get the money to pay back
the missing money that
Blanchett said "from her ,
dad."
The report indicates that
more than $3,000 may be
missing.

RATHER THAN CREAT-
ING A PANIC
The group agreed they do not
want to create panic in the
community but want to spread
awareness about the situation
before it occurs.
One of the key concerns of
health and city officials is a
bird.flu outbreak. Though no
cases have been reported in the
United States yet, health care
officials anticipate it's only a'
matter of time the virus will
travel to America. Though cur-
rently the bird flu virus only
spreads from birds to humans,


health care officials are con-
cemed it will be only a matter
of time before it mutates and
spreads among humans.
The first concern the pan-
demic preparedness task force'
is addressing is educating the
public about the situation. They
are working on gathering mate-
rials to disseminate into the
community to spread aware-
ness.
Anyone interested in becom-
ing a part of the task force can
call Wanda Crowe at the
Suwannee County-Health De-
partment at 362-2708.


Correction
In a recent story regarding a defendant who was acquit-
ted of charges in a meth case, Assistant State Attorney
Skip Jarvis told the Democrat that Michael Lynn Nugent,
31, 11493 145th Road, had entered a plea in the same
case. However, Jarvis said, although Nugent was initial-
ly charged, his charges were dropped after another defen-
dant testified that Nugent was not involved but was 'just
in the wrong place at the wrong time." The Democrat *
apologizes for any confusion regarding this story.

"In this period of increased
tropical activity, it is vital for all
Floridians to prepare," said Gov-
ernor Bush. "Families and busi-
nesses that prepare are safer and
recover quicker than those who
don't plan and don't take action."
Coinciding with National Hur-
ricane Preparedness Week, the
tax holiday begins today and
ends on the first day of the 2006
Hurricane Season, June 1. The
12-day holiday will save Floridi-
ans an estimated $41 million.
During this period, no state or lo-
cal sales tax will be collected on
hurricane preparedness items, in-
cluding:
Flashlights and portable, self-
powered light sources $20 or


or less
Cell phone batteries $60 or
less
"All indications are that we
will have another active hurri-
cane season," said Florida Divi-
sion of Emergency Management
Director Craig Fugate. "A suc-
cessful response starts well be-
fore a storm makes landfall -
with families, communities and
counties planning and preparing
for a potential emergency."
The 2006 Atlantic Hurricane
Season begins on June 1. For

Every hunter knows you have the best
chance of catching a monster buck off-

the archery and muzzleloading gun sea-
sons-and, why we can't miss opening
weekend of the general gun season.
If you plan to hunt on public land next
season, you should know many of Flori-
da's wildlife management areas (WMA)
require a quota permit to hunt during .

nine days of general gun season.
There are several types of quota permits
and most are issued by random drawing.

good-bye to 10 seniors A- 4.4TECE


Janet Schrader
Democrat Reporter
"This is an exceptionally
good team," Suwannee
High baseball coach Ronnie
gray said. "But this season
fell very short of our expec-
tations."
Suwannee carried a 21-4
record into district play this
year and lost the first game
of the tournament, ending
their season on a very dis-
appointing note.
"I don't remember us
committing a base-running
error this year," Gray con-
tinued. "They are a very
knowledgeable team and
this was the easiest team to
coach. I love these guys.
Suwannee baseball hon-
ored this great team at a re-
cent awards banquet to cap
off their season. The ban-
quet was held at the Live
Oak Church of God.
This year Suwannee var-
sity baseball had a record-
breaking year. The 2006


Dogs set a record for most
homeruns in a season with
27. The 2006 pitching staff
had second best Least
Earned Runs at 36 and sec-
ond best ever Least Runs at
65.
Several individual team
members set individual sea-
son and career records as
well. Daniel Tillman had
the second-best ever fewest
earned runs with six. Till-
man also had the second-
best ever ERA at .67. Tay-
lor Abercrombie leads the
all-time career record for
being hit by a pitch with 12
over his career. Ross
Aretino has the all-time ca-
reer record for runs at 101.
Bulldog baseball will
face a growing year next
year. The Dogs said tearful
good-byes to 10 seniors.
But with a crop of JV play-
ers just waiting to move up
off an undefeated season,
the growing pains might not
be too severe.

with three solid innings of
relief pitching. Jackson
Farms won the ballgame
11-9 to claim the 2006 Mi-
nor League Championship.
In the Major League divi-
sion (11-12 year old boys),
top-seed Pournelle Con-
struction claimed the title
in an 11-10 victory over
Lafayette State Bank.
Pournelle went undefeated
-in the tournament, but had
to come from behind to win
twice, both times against
Lafayette State Bank. Pour-
nelle won both of those
games with heroics in the


bottom of the sixth inning.
In the championship game
Justin Martin led off the
sixth with a single. Jeffery
Clark and John Pournelle
followed with base hits.
The game winning run
scored on a sacrifice-fly
ball from Marshall Pitman
that scored Mike Cronan.
The regular season may
be in the record books, but
there is still plenty of base-
ball for these kids to play.
The Babe Ruth all-star sea-
son is beginning and the
league has 11 teams on the
tournament trail.

e How long does floor refinishing
typically take from start to finish?


A:


At the risk of sounding elusive, we really
mnust Na\ that "it depends." If the room is
emiupt, or unfurnished, it takes a lot less


time than refinishing the floor in a fully furnished
room. Also, it depends upon the size of the room and
obstacles that exist. As a general rule of thumb,
approximately 500 square feet of vacant floor space
can be refinished in one day. If, however, any staining
is required, the stain must be allowed to dry for one
day. Also, if there is furniture in the room, the time for
refinishing doubles, at least.
The timing for a new floor installation will depend on
numerous variables, such as whether the old floor is
being removed, the condition of the sub-floor,
building requirements for sub-flooring, etc.

Continued From Page 1B

Santa Rosa County's Blackwa-
ter WMA or Hutton Unit must
have a quail quota permit.
The FWC offers youth hunts
for deer at Camp Blanding
WMA in Clay County and An-
drews WMA in Levy County.
If you have children ages 8-15,
and you want them to have the
chance of experiencing one of
these great hunts, apply for a
youth hunt quota permit. Dur-
ing these hunts, only the
youngsters may hunt, and they


and their adult supervisors are
the only people allowed on the
area.
Another effort to increase
hunting opportunities for
youths next season allows
youngsters to accompany an
adult quota permit holder on
any WMA-e.ven if the area
doesn't allow for exemptions.
However, adults and'youngsters
share a single bag limit.
Matanzas WMA in St. Johns
County offered the first family-
hunt last season, and it was a
huge success. Next season, this


great opportunity expands to
include Andrews and Devil's'
Hammock (both in Levy Coun-
ty), Dinner Island Ranch
(Hendry County) and the newly
established Lafayette Creek
WMA (Walton County).
You must apply for a family
hunt quota permit to hunt these
areas during specific time peri-
ods. Should you get drawn, the
permit requires one adult to
take one or two youths hunt;ng.
Disabled hunters, certified
mobility-impaired, can apply
for mobility-impaired person


quota permits. These permits
allow exclusive access to gen-
eral-gun hunt on eight of the
state's better public hunting ar-
eas.
If any of this is starting to
sound exciting to you, you'll
want to get ahold of the correct
quota permit worksheet so you
can apply for one or more of
these great opportunities. All
quota permit worksheets are at
.MyFWC.com/hunting under
"Quota." General gun and
archery/muzzleloading gun
quota worksheets also are


available at tax collector's of-
fices and license agents. Work-
sheets for other quota permits
are obtainable at FWC regional
offices.
Once you've completed the
worksheet, you may submit it
to any license agent or tax col-
lector's office. If you have a
valid Florida driver license, you
also can go through the Internet
at MyFWC.com/hunting.,
The random drawings to de-
cide who gets general gun and
archery/muzzleloading gun
quota hunt permits take place

It's important for people of all ages, especially
seniors, to stay active. According to the Centers for
Disease Control, being physically active can reduce
your risk of dying from heart disease and
decreases the risk for colon cancer, diabetes and
high blood pressure. Physical activity also helps
control weight; contributes to healthy bones,
muscles and joints; relieves the pain of arthritis;
reduces.symptoms of anxiety and depression; and
can decrease the need for hospitalizations,
physician visits and medications. Indeed, there's a
lot riding on incorporating exercise into your
lifestyle.
There's no better time than now to start
exercising. Be sure to check with your doctor before
increasing your physical activity, especially if you
have a chronic disease or family history of chronic
disease, chest pain, shortness of breath, high blood
pressure, asthma, diabetes, blood clots, infections
or fever, joint swelling, hip surgery or a hernia.

Here are some tips
to help you get started:
Don't just jump into a fitness routine. First,
stretch your arms, legs and back. Start off slowly,
gradually increasing the pace of your exercise.
Don't do too much too soon or you will hurt yourself.
For example, the AARP suggests starting with 10
minutes of walking before going to 20 and then 30
minutes. For a strength-training program using
weights and machines, talk to a fitness instructor on
how much weight to lift and how to use the
machines properly.

Exercise should make you feel better, not worse.
A little soreness, discomfort or fatigue is normal.
Listen to your body if you feel lightheaded, a -
shortness of breath, a sudden, severe headache,
are sweating excessively, or have pains in the chest,
stomach or anywhere else, you should stop
exercising. If symptoms persist, contact your doctor.
If you are on medication or have a condition that
alters your heart rate, don't use your pulse as a
judge of how fast your heart is or should be beating.
Wear the proper protective equipment for your
activity. If you are biking, wear a helmet. If you are
in-line skating, wear a helmet as well as knee and
elbow pads. Protective gear should be of good
quality and fit properly. It may be expensive, but it's
an expense that is well worth it.
Watch out for the elements. If it's hot, exercise in
the early morning or early evening when it's cooler,
or stay in the shade and wear lightweight clothing. If
it's cold, dress in layers, and be careful of ice and
snow.
It's especially important to stay hydrated when
you are engaging in exercise that makes you sweat.
Drink before, during and after exercise to prevent
dehydration.
A cool down is just as important as a warm up.
Stretch your arms, legs and back to bring your heart
rate back to its normal level.

Mitchell and Hatcher Realty



Longtime business with new connections


Mitchell Realty was begun
in the early 1980s by Mitch
Mitchell after receiving his
real estate' license. Hatcher
then began to buy and sell
land and prospered. He went
on to start a gold and diamond
business "and by the grace of
God it exploded!" Mitchell
said.
Mitchell continued to de-
velop land, and after many
successful years, his son,
Trey, took over the real estate
business and partnered with a
life long friend, Dewey
Hatcher, changing the name to
Mitchell and Hatcher Realty.
Mitch Mitchell is still in-
volved as an advisor to the
company.
For Trey, real estate had al-
ways been a passion as he
watched his family grow and


succeed in the business begin-
ning with his grandfather,
Fred Mitchell. It is now.his
chance to do the same.
Dewey Hatcher Jr. received
his bachelor's degree from St.
Leo University. A short time
later he became interested in
the real estate profession.
When the opportunity pre-
sented itself, he whole heart-
edly accepted Trey's offer to
become a partner.
Trey and Dewey share re-
sponsibilities such as market-
ing properties, employee rela-
tions, sales and many other
aspects of the business.
Mitchell and Hatcher Real-
ty currently has offices in
Steinhatchee, Fanning
Springs and just recently
added an office in Cross City.
The company plans to expand


to more communities in the
future.
.Mitchell, anldHatcher has
seven associates Cheryl
Pridgeon, Carol McClellan
(office manager) and Emily
Hatcher (Steinhatchee office);
Nick Hatcher and Duane Can-
non, Cross City office; Carol
McQueen, Davey Padot and
Jennifer Padot of the Fanning
springs office.
Trey and Dewey are very
involved in the communities
they serve. Both are members
of the Dixie County Chamber
and are on the Board of Real-
tors in Dixie, Gilchrist and
Levy counties and are mem-
bers of First Baptist Church of
Steinhatchee.

"What's a fish


By: Capt. Brian Smith,
Big Bend Charters
Go to your local fish market
and they'll tell you, to the pen-
ny, what each fish there is
worth at that moment. They
will often times have a price
sign stuck in the ice, right be-
side the fish's head so you
don't even have to know what
kind of fish' it is, but you'll
know it's worth $12.95 a
pound.
If you look around, you'll
notice different types of fish
have different prices. Some
types of fish are priced higher
than others even though
they're lying right next to one
another in the ice bed. A fish is
not a fish. is not a fish? Aren't
all fish created equal? Come
back in a few days and some of
the prices will have changed.
The fish you saw three days
ago for $12.95 per pound is
now $9.95 per pound. Come
back the ne\t da\ and the same
fish is $8.95 a pound. The
price of that fish i: dropping
$1 per pound per day; I'll come
back in a week. A week later
you conclude that someone
else obviously bought that fish
the day before you returned,
but you learned old fish aren't
as valuable as new fish.
Ask commercial fishermen
the worth of a fish, and he'll
tell you the current wholesale
price and let you know that
price will be less by the time
he returns with his catch. Fur-
thermore, the decline in
wholesale fish price by the
pound appears to be directly
correlated with the increase in
diesel cost b\ the gallon.
I asked a fellow in Panama
Cii'. how much a fish was
v.orth. We were at the yacht
basin standing beside his well
polished 63-foot sport fishing
wagon with a triple decker fly
bridge trimmed with numerous
gold international fishing
reels. He said come aboard. I
did, after wipingg off mrn feet
oirthe section ot carpet on the
dock with the name of the ves-
sel embroidered onr it. The
cockpit was a large dance floor
with twin fighting lounge
chairs port and starboard; em-
broidered name on the back-
rest, of course. On the transomn
was a hide-away sink. see-
through live-well, raw and
fresh water wash `down and
tackle storage. Looking for-
ward, there \ as a full size
chest freezer tor fish food, a
refrigerator for people food
and drink and a bait prep sta-
tion larger than a drafting
board table with integrated
tackle storage. A stairwell
leads to the primary helm sta-
tion on the first tier of the fly
bridge. Gold plated rod hold-


ers dot the brightwork. A wrap
around sofa framed the cap-
tains' chair so guest could have
a great view of a bank of elec-
tronics. that would shame
NASA in the 1960s. The sofa
had a stocked baby refrigerator
so you wouldn't have to go up
i and down the stairs to get a
fresh drink. Embroidered
name..on the sofa? What do
you think? A stainless ladder
.dropped from above and lead
to the secondary helm station.
Looking up the ladder, it
seemed to me to be the "stair-
way to heaven," judging -by
how far it went up. I can't
imagine anyone climbing up
that thing in a rolling sea with-
: out ia aletl harness 'I suppose,
in the event of bad weather,
you could transfer helm con-
trol to the upper station so the
Lord could take the boat in!
Through the double doors
was an all mahogany salon.
Walls, sofa, chairs, table,
huchli. gal le1 \ei bar, etc. were
all inmmed in mahogany in
such detail that the grain of the
wood was seamless. The floor
was covered in a rich bur-
gundy carpet, except for be-
hind the bar. which was Italian
tile engrained with seashells.
Going down and forward, we
looked at the queen sized guest
quarters and full sized bath-
room. The term "head" doesn't
apply to me when the head
was larger than the bathroom I
have in my house.
We peeked into the king.
sized captains' quarters. "This
is where.I stay," he said and
closed the door. I assumed it
had its' own "head." You know,
one of those dank mildew
smelly cramped toilet closets
you find on party boats. He
didn't let me in his quarters be-
cause he was a little embar-
rassed he couldn't afford a
showcase bathroom like the
guests were privy to, or so I
made myself believe.

a drinti ~ me
more. I found out it costs $800
per month to have his boat
float at that slip. That fee in-
cludes two parking places next
to your slip. For $2000 a day
he'll have his captain take out
your party for a wonderful day
on the water. The mate's tip is
not included, by the by. He
was a gracious gentleman but
never quite answered my
question as to the worth of a
fish.
Two hours of prep time on
Friday night, to make sure
most things are rigged and
ready, to minimize doing
much work in the darkness of
the early morning, meaning
that your Honey Dumpling
didn't get any "quality time"


warren celeDrated nis birtnnay witn rienas ano usn: (i-r) ring warren, ieini, iaincy, yiteta adiu relliey


after the work week. Then an
hour and a half drive to the
crowded boat ramp where it
takes all our restraint not to
blow your top at the ill pre-
pared fellow ahead of you
who obviously shared quality
time with his Honey
Dumpling the night before.
Then an hour or so pumpy
boat ride to the best fishing
spot in your GPS to find out
that three other boats have
stolen your secret number.
The bite is slow so you decide
to take a snack break, you ask
your 'buddy, whose sole re-
sponsibility was to bring the'
food and drinks, for a sand-
wich and soda. The look on
his face tells you he spent
quality time with his Honey
Dumpling last night too and
forgot the groceries. You
manage to iput a few fish in the,
:,boat before hunger and thirst
force aborting the fishing mis-
sion. After the mental anguish
of loading the boat back on the
trailer at the public boat ramp,
you find yourself at the Quick-
ie Gas Food Mart and Laundry
Emporium putting $25 worth
of gas in your truck, $50
worth of gas in your boat, 2
quarts of two-cycle oil ($5), a
cold six pack of liquid prosac,
bag of stale chips and a pep-
percornmhotdog ($11). (Defin-
ition: Peppercorn hotdog-
what you assume to be'a spicy
all beef link with a sprinkling
of peppercorns only to find
out, after first bite, that the
"peppercorns" where just
roasted flies that got stuck on
the wiener as it rolled around


for hours on the machine).
The party continues once
you pull back on the road, af-
ter you donate the chewed and
unchewed portion of the pep-,
percorn dog to the- roadside
raccoons. Your buddy offers to
help clean up the boat and the
fish, but you're so ticked off
that for the sake of the friend-
ship you feel a little time alone
is best and, tell him you'll take
care of it this time. Soon you
find yourself alone in the
backyard with a few dead fish
and a bomber squadron of bit-
ing flies that somehow heard
what you did with their kin-
folk at the QGFM&LE. Still
scratching the whelps from the
flies, you toss the chunks of
bagged fish parts in the garage
freezer, drag yourself to the
shower, flop down in that
nasty over stuffed: chair she's
been dying to have hauled off
to the dump, pop the last can
of warm liquid prosac and re-
ceive the silent treatment from
your Honey Dumpling. "Hon-
ey, do you want me to cook
that fish for diner tomorrow
night?" No answer and she's
, sitting across the room staring
at you. The worth of those
fish? I don't believe math ap-
plies.
The joyful screams and an-
tics of child speed cranking
grunts to the boat at a rate that
is only curbed by the time it
takes you to. remove, the fish
and put on more bait. He is ab-
sorbed in the moment like salt
in water. He is the best fisher-
men the world has ever
known. Just ask him. The sat-


isfaction of ,digging a big
grouper off the bottom to the
point of getting % inded brings
the child out in a gro% n man..
You can tell b\ the %\ay he
poses for a boat photo and
then sneaks.a few peeks in the
cooler to marvel at the accom-
plishment. The roller coaster
facial expression brought on
by a submarine missile strike
from a five foot plus barracu-
da on a trolled tube lure. The
aerial dance brings silence till
splash down. "Did you see
that?" "Somebody get the
rod!" The naked flicker of a
redfish tail, bringing out the
springer spaniel instinct in a
guide as she poles her client
within casting range. "Fish
ON!" Who's more excited? I
vote the fish but I could be
wrong.
Those four quick scenarios
are aff, very different but the
same. You see, we can add up
the cost of equipment and so
forth, the value of our time
and even factor in what we
could have been doing if we
weren't fishing. But we can't
put a price on that single red-
fish, or one grunt ofit of a hun-
dred or more, or that dancing
barracuda that most people'
would just release anyway.
The value of the fish is in the
moment.
The fish retailer and com-
mercial fishermen are
painfully aware of the cost of
getting fish. They know the
value of that fish declines
from the time it is caught to
the time it is sold. They're
simply trying to affix a dollar


figure on the fish. 'They're in
the fish business but the val-
ue of the fish is in the mo-
ment.
Sportfishermen look at fish
a bit different but there is a
similarity. The man with the
63 footer spent millions to be
in the lap of luxury the mo-
ment the fish struck. The oth-
er fellow endured' hurdles
and hardship to have a brief
moment with a few fish. The
scenarios depicted the high
moments with a fish but ne-
glected all the time necessary
to be there when it happened.
Will the little boy remember
dragging out of bed early, the
hour long boat ride, the cap-
tains' name, the bait used,
etc? Probably not. He will
remember the moment with
the fish for the rest of his life.
\ What is a fish not, north ?
Your life and those hI\es .. ; th
you! The same person that
counts calories, cholesterol,
and/or carbs, doesn't smoke
or drink, drives the speed
limit, makes sure their child
is in a car safety seat, is wor-
ried when a loved one is on.
the road late a night, etc can
be the same person that ig-
nores the dark clouds, turbu-
lent seas, preventative main-
tenance and "e\pensi\e"
safety equipment and takes a
huge risk to catch a stupid
fish. If a little voice in your
head sounds off a warning
whisper; pay attention to it.
There is no fish swimming
worth endangering yourself
and others. If conditions
aren't right, go golfing. I do.

have been named for i

State Militia during the

Marinades are used to add
flavor and to tenderize before
cooking. However, they often
have a lot of salt, causing
whatever you're grilling to dry
out. Try Mrs. Dash 10-Minute

with no MSG, to help maintain
the flavor and moisture.

How to prepare for the next hurricane


(ARA) Images of communities devastated last
year by extreme weather may have you wondering
how you can protect your family in ihe face of
Mother Nature's wrath. The best defense is to be
prepared before a storm or hurricane is headed
towards your home.. Always be ready to get your
loved ones. to a' safe place or evacuate if required.
Storms can bring winds of 100 mph or faster, and
can push tons of rainwater ahead of them. All
storms can bring danger and damage when they
hit, so be ready and safe. Here is what to do to
prepare for a storm -- more may be required for
each family depending on the circumstance, but
start with some basics. Remember, utilities and
basic services could be unavailable for days or
even weeks.
1. Pick a safe place for the family. This may be a
location in your home -- consider a windowless
room on the bottom floor. It could be a relative's
home or other location if your home doesn't have a
safe area. You should know the locations of at least
two emergency shelters near your home. People
with special medical needs should contact the
county agencies in advance to make prior
arrangements for transportation to a safe spot.
2. Have a family communications plan. Family
can become separated before or after a storm.
Have a prearranged meeting place and time if all
else fails. Designate a prime family contact person.
Be sure everyone in the family knows who the
contact person is and all members carry phone
numbers in their wallet or purse.
3. Get your home ready. Close the hurricane
shutters, if you have them; use extra screws and
washers to secure. Sheets of plywood, precut to fit
your windows, will also work well. Cover all the
windows if you can. Remove everything loose
from your yard and store it in the garage. Do not
wait until the rain starts. Watch the news when a
storm is approaching and protect your home.
4. Keep your cars and other vehicles full of
gasoline. Keep your car filled with at least half a
tank of fuel throughout hurricane season. Use a
fuel stabilizer and a water remover like Sta-Bil and
HEET in the tank at all times. You may have to
evacuate if the situation warrants.
5. Those with a back-up generator or a chain saw
should have Sta-Bil Fuel Stabilizer and at least an
extra couple of proper gasoline cans filled and
stabilized for safe refueling when needed. When a
storm approaches, lines at the gas station will get
long Many gas stations will run out of gas before


the storm hits. You need to have enough gas to
safely refuel emergency equipment. Sta-Bil brand
Fuel Stabilizer helps keep all fuel fresh, and
equipment ready to go at all times especially.
during uncertain times, like in the event of supply
problems during a hurricane. A hurricane recently
caused a dramatic drop in the supply of gasoline
by affecting the distribution service stations system
and pipelines.
6. Stock up on food and water. You should have
enough nonperishable food and water in your
home to last the family for at least a few weeks.
Buy and rotate fresh supplies to replace old,
purchase new canned goods every few years and
rotate the rest through your pantry. Bottled water
should be replaced every year.
7. Prepare other disaster supplies. You'll need to
stock up on batteries, flashlights, rope, tarps,
plastic bags, bad-weather clothing and other
essentials enough to carry your family through the
aftermath of the storm.
Emergency supplies that you will need: (not in
any order)
Drinking water at
least 2 to 3 quarts per


-


person per day. This includes wash water in case
you don't have running water.) Nonperishable
food (cans and a can opener, pots or cooking pans)
MRE's energy bars Extra batteries for flashlights
-and radios First aid kit Medication for all family
members 1 gallon of liquid chlorine bleach *
.Flashlights Battery-operated radio Cash *
Toiletries and toilet paper Clothing and rain gear
* Extra gasoline in approved storage can Enough
fuel for a generator or a chain saw Plastic trash
bags and duct tape. Cut a hole in the bottom and
arm holes in the sides for rain gear. They also work
for weather proofing your stuff.
Keep important documents (insurance policies,
etc.) with you and check your insurance coverage.
Write down all the contact information and policy
numbers and put this into a waterproof resealable
plastic bag. Do a room-by-room inventory with
any serial numbers for insurance purposes.
Remember, a few hours of preparation can spare
you a lot of grief, and help protect your. loved
ones.
