Live Oak and Lake City dentist Dr. John Craig
was arrested June 1 and charged with 209 charges


involving writing prescriptions
for controlled drugs.
Dr. Craig, 43, formerly a
Suwannee County resident, was
arrested at his home in Lake City J"'
by.the Florida Department of .,
Law Enforcement (FDLE) and
the North Florida Drug Diversion
Response Team (DRT), according Dr. John Craig
to FDLE's Phil Kiracofe, Public
Information Officer for FDLE's Tallha-ssee Re-
gional Operations Center.
Dr. Craig was taken to the Columbia County Jail


felony charges
and incarcerated until he was released the next day
after posting $50,000 bond, Kiracofe said.
The Florida Department of Health (FDOH) had
suspended Dr. Craig's license May 5 in an emer-
gency action after Dr. Craig's offices in Live Oak
and Lake City were raided and numerous records
were seized. That suspension i,s valid indefinitely.
according to FDOH.
Dr. Craig's arrest came after a three-month inves-
tigation by the DRT into allegations of prescription
fraud. Kiracofe said.

an 1-10 construction zone but the dump body was in the upright position.. The
dump body hit the overpass at CR 417, causing the wreck. After closing 1-10 to
land a helicopter to transport Burgess, an inspection of the overpass revealed it
wasn't damaged enough to close the road. No charges have been filed at this time.

Leonard and Pat Lyons

celebrating 50 years together!


The Wellborn Community
Association's (WCA) 13th an-
nual Blueberry Festival was a
smashing blueberry success,
starting with the Blueberry
Cook-Off and Taste of Well-
born Party, which had an over-
flowing crowd, filled with
blueberry anticipation. Four of
us lucky judges had a deli-
ciously wonderful time taste-
testing all those blueberry-
filled desserts. We then had to
decide which three, from all
the 23 entries we had sampled,
were taste-bud-worthy enough
to be chosen the best three
over-all. And believe me, the
task was not as easy as one
might think. It goes without
saying, but I'll say it anyway,
that all 23 dessert entries were
scrumptious. But, when all
was said, and the tasting was
done, only three could be cho-
sen. Congratulations to the
over-all winners: Krystal
Whitmore, third place and $15
for her Blueberry Pound Cake;
Linda Gaylard, second place
and $25 for her Blueberry
Fluff; Carol Johnson, first
place and $50 for her Blueber-
ry Pie with meringue topping.
Denise and Rick Randolph of
SDW Southern Designs spon-
sored all cook-off award rib-
bonis, and the etched crystal
paperweights presented to the
top three winners. All cash
awards were donated by the
WCA. And lest I forget, thanks
to my fellow judges: Suwanne
County District 4 'County
Commissioner Billy Maxwell,
Hardy Bryan and Steve Bailey.
The WCA parade was much
longer this year than in years
past. The most colorful float
belonged to the Suwannee Val-
ley Sweet Vixens chapter of
the Red Hat Society. Even the
tractor pulling their float wore
a large red and purple
plumaged hat atop its' front
grill. Congratulations to the
winning floats: Wellborn Bap-
tist Church, third place and
$10; Suwanmee Valley Sweet
Vixens second place and $15.
All Springs Veterinary Hospi-
tal of Wellborn was grand
prize winner and received $25.
The parade also featured sev-
eral different breeds of horses.
The most beautiful .one be-
longed to Bobbi Fenderson,
Who struck quite the regal fig-
ure wearing her red cape as she
rode on the back of Marja, her
gorgeous, coal-black Friesian.
Dale Barrett showed off his
beautiful, spirited Tennessee
Walker.
Fred Perry was great, as al-
ways, entertaining festival go-


ers with his impression of the
King of Rock and Roll Elvis
Presley. Fred is very gracious
with fans, who love to hear
him sing. He is always gener-
ous with his time, posing for
pictures and sharing hugs, a
true southern gentleman, just
like King Elvis was, before, he
left the building. Contestants
for the Power Country 102 Tal-
ent Show offered a wide vari-
ety of music, ranging from
blue-grass and country, to
folksy blues and gospel. It was
blue-grass that won the day,
and from the roar of the crowd,
when the first place winners
were announced, we three'
judges knew we had made the
right choice. The Andrews
Brothers of Lake City won
first place and $1,002; Heather
Mullins of Branford won sec-
ond place and $502; third
place and $102 went to Colby
Craig of Lake City; and Jen-
nifer Dampier of Gainesville
.won fourth place and a $102
gift certificate from Smitty's.
Western Store in Lake City.
Again I would like to thank my
fellow judges: Bobbi Fender-
son and Robert Campbell. We
certainly had an entertaining
time together. Yes we did.
Mae Bastarache of Caribou,
Maine won the stainless steel
grill. Mae is the sister-in-law
of WCA members, and out-
back residents, Wayne and
Beanie Brooks. Ray Turner's
step-son, Eric Rogers of Guy-
ton, Ga. 'won the Cow Plop
Bingo and the $1,000 prize
money. By day's end the
WCA's Country Store resem-
bled Old Mother Hubbard's
cupboard ... it was bare. No
pies were to be had within two
hours of the store's opening.'
The store's manager, Linda
Gaylard, told me all the baked-
goods were sold out by 3 p.m.
There are a few bottles of blue-
berry syrup left. I'm sure they
will find their way to the table-
tops of future WCA pancake
breakfasts.
If you see a lot of people
with purple lips and tongues,
"don worry, be happy." It's not
the "one-eyed, one-horned,
flying purple people-eater in-
vasion." It's just those of us
from the outback showing off
our blueberry pride for the
WCA, for having done such a
great job with this year festi-
val. In the meantime, pray for
our troops and their families.
Be kind to the wayfaring
stranger, and help your neigh-
bor in need. Tell those you love
you love them. And as always,
may God bless you and yours.

Dr. Craig
Continued From Page 1A

FDOH's findings during
the investigation say Dr.
Craig prescribed total of 97
prescriptions for one patient,
consisting of 751 hy-
drocodone tablets, 187 oxy-
codone tablets, 195 Demerol
tablets, 170 Diazepam (Vali-
um) tablets, 1,355 Cariso-
prodol tablets and 330 Alpra-
zolam (Xanax) tablets. The
FDOH findings allege that on
two occasions, Dr. Craig him-


self allegedly picked up pre-
scriptions he wrote for drugs
for another person, based on
an affidavit by a Walgreen's
pharmacist. In addition, the
FDOH fact findings say Dr.
Craig ordered over 2,000 hy-
drocodone pain pills for his
office from a pharmaceutical
wholesaler, that he does not
have a license to dispense
drugs of this nature and "it is
highly unlikely that routine
dental procedures would re-
quire the direct administering


of such an amount of hy-
drocodone directly to patients
regardless," the findings al-
lege.
Kiracofe said information
obtained from pharmacies in
Live Oak and Lake City re-
vealed that over the past sev-
eral years Dr. Craig had
called in excessive numbers
of prescriptions for drugs.
such as Hydrocodone, De-
merol, Oxycodone and Vali-
um for several members of
his family.


Information gained from
patient and pharmacy records
led to warrants being issued
charging Dr. Craig with the
209 criminal counts. He
faces 29 counts of obtaining a
controlled substance by fraud,
178 counts of prescribing
controlled substances with no
medical necessity, one count
of practicing medicine with-
out a license and one count of
practicing a pharmacy with-
out a license. All the charges
are third-degree felonies pun-


ishable by up to 5 years in
prison on each count in addi-
tion to fines, Kiracofe said. If
convicted of all 209 charges,
Dr. Craig could face a 1,045
years of prison time.
The Drug Diversion Re-
sponse Team is a task force
made up of state and federal
agencies that have authority
to investigate criminal misuse
of prescribed medications.
This can include doctors who
illegally prescribe, pharma-
cists who illegally distribute,


and individuals who illegally
obtain prescription drugs.
DRT agencies involved in
this investigation include
FDLE, FDOH, Attorney Gen-
eral's Medicaid Fraud Control
Unit and the U.S. Drug En-
forcement Administration.
Special agents from FDLE's
Live Oak field office also as-
sisted.in the investigation.

Hurricane


Continued From Page 1A

a much higher mission in that
area.
Shortly after Katrina hit, she
single-handedly established a
food and distribution center to
assist hurricane victims who
stayed behind during the storm.
She secured access to Mardi
Gras World Distribution Center
parking lot in New Orleans to
set up the operation and FEMA
supplied her with water, ice,
MREs (Meals Ready to Eat)
and 20 volunteer firefighters to
assist with distribution. She also
secured food from businesses
and organizations around the
nation to assist the thousands of
people seeking her help daily.
Around Christmas time, Lily
Duke got involved in toy distri-
bution for children, and shortly
after, distribution of school sup-
plies to area schools. She sup-
ported 16 schools with food
and school supplies in Jeffer-.
son, Orleans and Plaquemine
Parishes.
Leon Duke said at the time
those areas were still void of
power and water, so school
lunchrooms werenibiperable.
Several schools around the
nation helped her replenish
textbooks and other school sup-
plies that were demolished by
floodwaters. .'
"There's nothing she would-
-unt,assist.'with. When the gover-
nor called on her assistance, she
didn't say, 'oh, we don't offer
those supplies.' She just found
out how to get them," her father
said.


Lily Duke, referred to by

those she's assisted as Miss
Lily, stayed in the devastated
areas when other organizations
were leaving.
"I saw many of the relief or-
ganizations pulling out because
the numbers of people there
needing help were dropping,"
Lily Duke said. "If I saw one
person up on a roof crying for
help, I would stay to help."
She said she knew that be-
sides the victims who waded
out the hurricane, eventually
evacuees would return home,
increasing the need for help.
And she was right.
During the operation, on her
busiest day Lily Duke fed
20,000 people. At the distribu-
tion center she had vehicles go-
ing through one line for water,
food and ice and another line
for supplies, such as baby food
and wipes. The crew was re-
ceiving up to seven semi loads
per day of supplies.
"She has fed 1 million people
since February," said her proud
father, Leon Duke.
"Running the operation was
no different than running a
movie set," Lily Duke said.
The devoted movie producer
has not had an income since
she moved to the area to pro-
duce the film, and she has basi-
cally exhausted her income. Be-
cause of damage to her apart-
ment,,Lily Duke was forcedto
live in a tent for a while. And
once her apartment was up and
running she was forced out be-
cause of price gouging. She is
currently waiting on FEMA for


housing.
Her efforts have been scaled
back because FEMA pulled her
help and her resources have
been reduced. However, this
has not deterred Lily Duke., She
and her.crew are at work form-
ing an independent organization
where they hope to continue as-
sisting in relief efforts across
the nation.
"Right now I'm working on
the paperwork to gain 501C3
status. The paperwork is
lengthy, but we hope to have it
completed in time to be ready
for the next disaster," she said.
Her plans for Duke Indepen-
dent Disaster Relief (DIDR) is
to have staging areas across the
nation set up to assist any state
with any disaster.
Once DIDR obtains 501C3
status, they can secure dona-
tions and sponsorship from cor-
porate organizations, which will
greatly increase supplies and re-
sources. This will also allow
them to apply for grants to ob-
tain such items as needed
equipment to place at staging
areas..
"I think the reason Lily has
not quit is she gets upset when
someone tells her she can't do
something, especially when she
knows it's right," her father
said. "She's seen it (the devas-
tation) with her own eyes from

day one.".
"Lily gave up everything to
do what she did," said Volun-
teer Fire Fighter Jerry Gonza-
lez, who has been working by
her side since September. "She
inspired us to keep going. She
worked so hard that sometimes
we had to force her to go
home."


Leon Duke said the areas his
daughter is working in are still,
much in disrepair."
"It stills looked like a tsuna-
mi hit when I visited those ar-
eas the first of March," he said.
During his visit to the area
Leon Duke saw the carcass of a
horse still in a tree in someone's
yard. He saw a pickup truck on


a two-story house, a house sit-
ting on two vehicles and two
houses sitting on the edge of
the road.
"There, are blocks and blocks
where there are no houses.
There's just piles of rubble," he
said.

Throughout
BYTodd A. Stottlemyer the history of
American pol-
itics, two groups of citizens have had a major impact
on the outcome of elections. One group is known as
the "silent vote" or the "stay-at-homes"-registered
voters who don't care enough about the future of their
nation to take the time and effort to go to the polls and
exercise their democratic right to cast a ballot. The oth-
er group is America's small-business owners.
Small-business owners care' a lot about their gov-
ernment. An; National Federation of Independent
Business (NFIB) Research Foundation Poll about po-
litical participation found that a disproportionately
large percentage of small-business owners-95 percent-
are registered to vote and an almost-equally large
share-84 percent-usually do so.
And hundreds of those small-business men and
women will be in Washington, D.C., this month for
the 2006 NFIB National Small-Business Summit. They
will'take a message to their senators and representa-
tives that they want affordable health insurance, less
regulation, a fair tax code and an end to frivolous law-
suits. They will be speaking for the millions of small-
business owners who account for more than half the
jobs in America.
Few segments of society have more legitimate ex-
cuses than small-business owners to stay home, to
skip a major event like the Summit or an election day.
Not only do they have enterprises to lead and man-
age, but in many cases, they are pretty much their
business' entire labor force.
But a strong sense of duty runs through this seg-
ment of our population: 96 percent believe that every
citizen should participate in government, if only to
vote; 82 percent agree that business owners are lead-
ers who have a responsibility to show the way in mat-
ters of public affairs and other key components of so-
ciety.
This year would be an easy time for small-business
owners to be-"stay-at-homes" and not participate in
their government. It's a tense time in Washington,
with frequent nasty dashes erupting between political
leaders who believe in the promise and potential of
the American free enterprise system and those who
see it only as a source of tax funds for even larger gov-
ernment programs and projects that bleed hard-
earned dollars away from the nation's true needs. Ma-
jor issues ranging from immigration policy to out-of-
control health care costs to excessive government reg-
ulation spawn charges and counter-charges.
But these, and other threats to the future of our na-
tion, are the very reasons why the entrepreneurs who
create and successfully grow the nation's 25 million-
plus small firms can ill afford to stay at home when
political duty calls.
There is still time for small-business owners who
care enough about the most important segment of the
nation's economy to make the trip to Washington June
18-20 to affirm the small-business sector's belief that
achieving good public policy is a constant struggle,


but a struggle well worth the effort-and the time.

OPINION

Is There a Da Vinci Code?


By John W. Whitehead
The enigmatic genius Leonardo da Vinci was a
Renaissance painter and an engineer. He con-
structed his paintings and drawings to engineer-
ing standards, as one might build a bridge. Be-
sides being a great painter and sculptor, he was
also an. architect, inventor, musician and
botanist, among other things. And virtually
everything Da Vinci did was done with mathe-
matical precision-including his works of, art.
Most assuredly, this was true of one of his most'
famous paintings, The Last Supper. The painting,
which depicts Jesus' last supper with his disci-
ples, is at the heart of Dan Brown's novel The Da
Vinci Code, which has now been made into a
movie.: Badly deteriorated, The Last Supper un-
derwent a 20-year restoration before being un-
veiled in 1999. Having been stripped of layers of
paint that were applied in earlier restoration at-
tempts, only about 20 percent of the original
painting now remains. However, in 1994, ,five
years before- the restored The Last Supper was
displayed, speculation arose about the identity Qf
the apostle depicted on Jesus' right. Traditionally
accepted as the Apostle John, the appearance is
somewhat feminine. Thus, it was suggested that
the figure, which appeared to be wearing a neck-
lace of some sort, had the semblance of a slight
bosom, was of'slighter build and had longer hair
than the other apostles, might be Mary Magda-
lene. Although unlikely, it was an intriguing con-
cept at the time. "In opposition to this specula-
tion, a valid scenario posed from the outset was
that if it is possible in a substantially deteriorat-
ed, 500 year-old painting to discover that one of
the characters is not a man, but a woman," writes
scholar and art historian Laurence Gardner in
The Magdalene Legacy (2005), "then this would
clearly have been most apparent, when the paint-
ing was in its prime, and would have become part
of the painting's history." However, we now
know that the 1994 Mary Magdalene hypothesis
was based on an image that had been substantial-
ly painted oyer by other artists in earlier restora-
,tion attempts. And following this last restoration,
we can now view the figure as originally painted
by, Da, Vinci. When planning The, LastSupper, Da
Vinci made numerous notes and some preparato-
ry drawings. He split his apostles into four
groups of three at the table, with Jesus in the cen-
ter and six apostles on either side. Da Vinci de-,
scribed the individual apostles of The Last Sup-
per in detail when preparing for the work. And in
determining how to portray the younger charac-
ters (such as the brothers James and John) as dis-
tinct from the older, more swarthy men with
beards, Da Vinci wrote: "Therefore make the hair
on the head play in the wind around youthful
faces, and gracefully adorn them with many cas-
cades of curls." As Gardner points out: "Al-
though not described as being especially young
in the New Testament, it became an artistic tradi-
tion to portray James, John and Philip as younger
men than the others. John in particular is a mere
youth in a good many Last Supper portrayals,
and is even a young boy in a number of them." In
the world of fine art, there are various depictions
of the Last Supper. Da Vinci elected to portray
the moment in John 13:21, where Jesus announces
that one of' the apostles would betray him. The


apostles then look at one another, wondering
about whom Jesus spoke. Peter consulted another
disciple (generally thought to be John) and "mo-
tioned to him to ask who it was of whom He
spoke" (John 13:24). Da Vinci's painting shows
Peter asking this question. There is no sign of any
menace between him and his neighbor, and the
Apostle John leans toward him, listening. In The
Da Vinci Code, one of the book's characters ex-
plains that the figure of Jqhn is really Mary Mag-
dalene. He then draws attention to the fact that
Peter (sitting adjacent) is slicing his blade-like
hand across Mary's neck. However, in Da Vinci's
portrayal, there is no blade-like cutting by Peter's
hand, which is simply resting gently on the apos-
tle's shoulder. -In The Da Vinci Code, a."disem-
bodied" hand "wielding a dagger" is mentioned.
It appears in the painting between .Andrew and
Judas. Before the 1999 restoration, it was difficult
to determine to whom it belonged. Now.it is clear
that it is Peter's hand holding a knife, not a dag-
ger-presumably used during the meal. "Fortu-
nately, there were a number of individual copies
of the painting made by students of Leonardo
within the first 30 years of its life, before the de-
cay set in," writes Gardner. "They each make it
plain that Peter has his right arm twisted awk-
wardly as he leans behind Judas to speak to John.
It was Peter who subsequently drew his sword
and cut off Malchus' ear when Jesus was arrested
at Gethsemane (John' 18:10), and Leonardo's-
painting paves the way for this event." The sce-
nario is that Peter conceals the knife behind him
while asking John the name of Jesus' betrayer.
The irony is that Judas is the man who sits be-
tween them and turns to listen to their conversa-
tion. These same early copies (made around 1520)
serve to identify Peter's left hand resting gently
on John's shoulder. They also depict Jesus' drink-
ing vessel. The Da Vinci Ccide makes the point
that Jesus should have had a Grail chalice for his
wine, .as suggested in the Bible. But the Bible
makes no such claim. In fact, when related to this
painting, The Da Vinci Code relies on an out-of-
date premise that was posited before the 1999
restoration, when the previous overpaintings had
bee. renioved.ar1,d.DaVinci' origipral,or.k could
be seen. But The Da Vinci Code takes no account
of this, while perpetuating an old Magdalene the-
ory. Yet perhaps that is precisely the point of The
Da Vinci Code. It is a novel. So why all the hub-
bub over a piece of fiction?

Q: I take good car of my teeth. Why do I
have bad breath?
A. It's just a fact that certain kinds of
bacteria exist in the mouth and they
produce volatile sulfur compounds. In the
mouths of most people, the bacteria are in
balance. But some people have an
imbalance and regardless of how diligently
they practice sound oral hygiene, they are
going to have a breath problem. Studies
show that about 25 percent of the
population has chronic problem. So it's a
misconception that people who have bad
breath have poor oral hygiene. Among
steps the American Dental Association
recommends to combat bad breath is to
drink plenty of water. When you are well
hydrated you will produce a strong flow of
saliva, which helps wash away excess
bacteria. Also, brushing your tongue is
helpful because bad breath bactena will
collect on the back of the tongue. Morning
breath, by the way, is a somewhat different
issue. Saliva production slows when we
are asleep and sour breath in the morning
is far more common than chronic bad
breath. Ask your dentist for advice on how
to combat bad breath.

12:30 p.m. Thursday, June 1
on Motes Road in Francis in
Putnam County, according to
Reddick.
Reddick said the Putnam
County chapter of the opera-
tion began-when the U.S.
Marshals Service contacted
Lt. John Merchant, supervisor
of the Putnam County Sher-
iff's Office Drug and Vice
Unit, on Wednesday, May 31.
The Marshals had tracked
Raulerson to Putnam. County
where he was living under an
alias at 105 Gaylord Street in
Interlachen, and doing tree
removal type work. With the
help of an undercover opera-
tive, arrangements were made
to meet Raulerson at a resi-
dence under the guise of hav-
ing him give an estimate for
some tree work. When he ar-
rived with his 21-year-old
son Justin Raulerson,.who
also had an outstanding war-


rant for his arrest for viola-
tion of probation of an Osce-
ola County charge of petty
theft, a contingency of detec-
tives and Marshals were wait-
ing for Raulerson. Reddick
said both Raulersons exhibit-
ed some resistance while be-
ing arrested, but were ulti-
mately arrested with the as-
sistance of Putnam County
Sheriff's Canine Deputy Alex
Bailey and his partner Saber.
After being treated at Put-
nam Community Hospital for
, their injuries, both men were
booked into the Putnam
County Jail without benefit of
bond, Reddick said.
The Dowling Park robbery
came at 9 a.m. May 18, 1998
when two female bank em-
ployees opened the bank for
business that morning and
were immediately held up by
two men. Two customers
walked into the robbery and
became victims also, law en-
forcement officers said.


Thousands of dollars were
taken in the robbery where
one of the men, believed to
be Raulerson, then 34, wore a
pinstriped tuxedo type suit
and an auburn red wig resem-
bling the one worn by the
Joker in the Batman and
Robin series. This man indi-
cated to those in the bank that
he had an explosive device
strapped to his chest. Both
tellers and the customers
were forced into the bank's
vault and the door was closed.
before the two men left the
bank, officers said at the
time.
Meanwhile, a bomb threat
had been called in to Suwan-
nee High School at about the
same time the robbery took
place, causing officers to be-
lieve the bomb threat was a
ploy to get officers into Live
Oak so the robbery could
take place without interfer-
ence and the get-a-way could
be accomplished.


A car stolen the night be-
fore from Easy Auto in Live
Oak and parked overnight at
the Suwannee River was used
in the bank heist, officers
said. A boat and motor stolen
from a nearby home several
days earlier was believed
used for the get-a-way by wa-
ter after the stolen car was
ditched in bushes near the
river.
Three men were arrested,
charged and sentenced in the
case, but Raulerson had elud-
ed capture until now.
Raulerson is originally
from Levy County.
Three others already have
been arrested, charged and
sentenced in the case. A girl-
friend of Raulerson's was ar-
rested in Calhoun County in
2000 after officers converged
on his camper trailer there
but missed Raulerson. At that
site officers found a book
they believed Raulerson was
writing about his exploits.

Millennium Park will be

Oak on Friday nights for all
ages with all types of enter-
tainment.
The city of Live Oak and
Herold White will sponsor
the event. White says he
wants to host the event every
Friday night. "We may do it
every Friday night if it turns
out good," said White, a local
entertainer whose history in
the entertainment world is
impressive. White has owned
night clubs, entertained in
Las Vegas, owned a recording
studio, recorded his own mu-
sic, had his own band, been a
radio DJ, and played blue-
grass, country and rock 'n
roll with the best of the music
world.
White said he wants the
event to be a community sup-
ported, community-involved
event. Its success is up to the
public participation will.

ers in a" unique setting in
downtown Live Oak in the
beautiful Millennium Park.
The e\ ent %\ ill be from 7 -
10 p.m. June 9 and 23; July 7
and 21; August 4 and 18 and
on and on until further notice.
White is' looking for people
to perform such as singers,
bands, groups and pickers.
Those who want to sign up

diately at 386-590-0129 or
386-362-3263.
For those who long to be
before an audience and aren't
professionals yet, there'll be a
special open mic time during
each event so come on down
or call White in advance at
386-590-0129 or 386-362-
3263 to lock in your spot.

There will be no charge to'
attend, but guests are advised
to bring a fold up chair, as i
seating is limited to the grass
and benches at the park.
Concessions are planned
with light snacks available


the first night.
With White, country music
is a way of life and has been
all his life. He was born in
Hazel, Ky., into a musical
family and was singing be-
fore he started to school. He
made his first public appear-
ance at the age of 15 with the
bluegrass group of Jim &
Jesse and if there was ever
any doubt about what White
wanted to do with his life, it
all disappeared that evening
when he heard the roar of the
crowd after his performance.
After many years in the
business, in 1968 White and
his band became one of the
regular show groups at The'
Golden Nugget in Las Vegas.
For the next four years they
were booked as The Herold
White Show from The Gold-
en Nugget in Las Vegas until
1972. That same year White
started recording at Buck
Owens' studio in Bakersfield,
Cal. with the Buckaroos play-
ing on the sessions under the
direction of Bob Morris from
Blue Book Music. The first
release was "Fill This Heart
With Love" (written by
White) b/w "Too Late To
Keep From Losing You" on
Stoneway Records in Hous-
ton, Texas. The second re-
lease was "The Beginning"
(written by White) b/w "This
Ugly Mug of Mine. Both
records made it to the top 1Q
in more than 35 markets
across the country.
After working around the
country, owning night clubs
and recording studios and
performing, in 1984 White
sold out and moved his fami-
ly back to Tampa where he
went back to one of his fa-
vorite clubs, Joyland on US
19 in St. Petersburg. In 1990
White moved back to his
hometown of Live Oak where
he now lives -"Way Down
Upon The Suwannee River."
White works with many
different bands now, traveling
to put on IKaraokeshoWs at
all kind of events around the
south. He plans to perform at
some of the events.

FROM THE PAGES OF THE WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22, 1978 EDITION OF THE SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT
\


A St. Patrick's Day Party was held at the Dowling House for
the Monday Night Sing Along on March 13. The residents enjoyed
singing some favorite Irish Songs, the slides shown by Mr. Roy
DeCoff of the Home, and the refreshments served by Mrs. Joe
Phelps and her committee.
Several residents of'the Health Center, along with volunteers,
spent all day Wednesday baking and decorating cookies for their
St. Patrick's Day Parade on Friday, March 17. On March 16, they
decorated a cake for the occasion. The St. Patrick's Day Parade
began at the Health Center and went to Dowling House in hopes
of continuing on to the Senior Center. Leading the Parade were
Mr. Roy and Mrs. Cottle Hunter, King and Queen of Dowling
Park, Advent Christian Home. The Health Center held a party at
1:30 p.m. to end the day.
PRECEDING THE DAYS BEFORE EASTER, 'the Health

400 eggs for their Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for March 24, 1978.

tertest is shown.


Mrs. Evelyn Wotton, of Dowling Manor, showed slides to the
Senior Center participants and other interested persons, on
Thursday, March 16, at 3 p.m. Everyone seemed to enjoy them
and we appreciate Mrs.. Wotton sharing her slides on the
Philippines with the Senior Center.
The Senior Center is beginning a new program-a Ceramic Art

After just three events of a 14-

Racing Series is going strong and
all signs look to the series just get-
ting better. The series, which is
based off of similar car-specs
from Lowe's Motor Speedway's
CRASHCar Division, has given
racers more chances to compete
on different tracks around the Car-

booked to be a supporting divi-

cars are best described as "Street

semble Street Stocks, but have a
couple of unique differences. In
addition to the car's number, each
car has a name or a theme. The
cars are allowed to have several
bars outside of the body and ex-
haust pipes that come through the
hood, much like those on demoli-

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

How do I choose carpet?

A There are a number of reasons why carpet i's a
great choice for many of the rooms in your
S* home.
Carpet offers a variety of colours, patterns and styles to
satisfy any personal style and match any d6cor.
Carpet's cushioned surface absorbs sound and is less
noisy to walk on than hard surface flooring.
Affordability, carpet is one of the most economical
flooring products to have installed.
The insulating properties of carpet provide additional
warmth underfoot during cold seasons.
Carpet is a non-slip surface that is safe underfoot and
provides a cushion to prevent breakage when delicate items
are accidentally dropped.
Most synthetic carpets are treated with static, stain and
soil resistant treatments, making them easy to clean and
maintain. t

it and if the first three events
tell the tale, the Redneck Rac-
ing Series will be very success-
ful because the fans and com-
petitors love them," said Bob
Dillner, television commenta-
tor for SPEED Channel and
CRASHCar / Redneck Racing
Series competitor. "They look
different and are fun to watch.
That's what promoters are
looking for these days. We
support what the Lowe's Mo-
tor Speedway is doing, but we
wanted to give racers some dif-
ferent places to compete and
do so without over-excessive
bumping and banging. These
Street-Stock type cars are what
racing used to be combined
with the pizzazz of 21st centu-
ry entertainment."
After three events, a total of
22 different Redneck Racing
Series cars have competed in at
least one event. Kirby Allen's
number-44 "Create-A-Scape"
car leads the points, on the
strength of no finishes of worse
than fourth, including a victory
at Southern National Raceway
Park in Kenly, NC.
Kenneth Deese's "Big
Show," who was the champion
in last year's CRASHCar Divi-
sion at Lowe's Motor Speed-


way, won the opening race of
the year at Hickory Motor
Speedway in North Carolina.
Allen then found victory lane
last month at Southern Nation-
al and Jim Cook's "Big-Shot"
grabbed the checkers in a pho-
to-finish in last weekend's race
at Concord Motorsport Park.
The new PASS South has
tabbed the series as a regular
support division to its Super
Late Model events. The Red-:
neck Racing Series competed
with PASS South at both Hick-
ory and Kenly and will com-
pete with the first-year series
seven more times at tracks like
Florence Motor Speedway
(SC), Orange County Speed-
way (NC) and Tri-County
Speedway (NC).
"The Redneck Racing Series
is exactly the type of support
series we want to have with
PASS South," said PASS South
owner Tom Mayberry. "The
guys in the series are a good
bunch of people and they real-
ly want to race. The cars' are
very cool and the kids like
looking at them with all of the
graphics and the stacks coming
up through the hood. That is
exactly what we want to do
with our PASS South shows;
make it more of a family at-
mosphere and a family event,


and the Redneck Racing Series
fits in there perfectly."
During the inaugural season,
the Redneck Racing Series will
visit eight different tracks. Se-
ries officials are still looking to
add a couple of more events to
round out the season.
The 10 best finishes will
make up the season-long point
standings. The 2006 Redneck
Racing Series champion will
receive a variety of contin-
gency program awards, includ-
ing a set of headers from -
Schoenfeld Headers, a Hero
Card Design from 51 Designs
and a $250 gift certificate from
The Joie of Seating in Con-
cord, NC. All races, with the
exception of the event at Con-
cord Motorsport Park orf May
27th, are $500 to win for the
grassroots division.
The Redneck Racing Series
will return to action on June
10th with an event at Florence
Motor Speedway. They will
also have a race the following
weekend at Orange County
Speedway. Both events are
support shows for the PASS
South Super Late Model Se-
ries.

Redneck Racing Series, con- -

STORMS & OUTAGES
Long before a storm or hurricane threatens, SVEC stands ready to respond.
When the storm hits, our employees roll up their sleeves and go to work to
restore power interrupted by the sorm's fury.

Customers who lose power should
contact SVEC. When the call is
answered, the location of the outage is
recorded automatically by SVEC
automated outage-reporting system.
Customers can also speak directly to a
company representative if available.
SVEC brings in additional employees,
to respond to customer calls during
major storms, and it has dramatically
increased the number of incoming d
telephone lines for its outage-
reporting system. But customers may A A
experience busy signals and longer- %
than-normal waits during times of
high call volumes., d d


Here are a few tips to follow for your safety:
* If someone in your home Is dependent on medical equipment
requ rngIelectricity, make arrangements in advance for and
alternative power source for emergencies.
* If rising water threatens your home, turn off the power at the
circuit breaker panel or fuse box before water enters your home.
Have an electrician inspect your system before turning the power
back on after flooding.
* Never replace a fuse or touch a circuit breaker with wet hands, or
while standing on a wet or damp surface.
* If you see a downed power line, call SVEC to report Its location.
* Avoid driving over downed power lines. Avoid puddles near
downed power lines.
* Plug only Individual appliances into portable generators. Never
connect a generator to wall outlets, building wiring or your home's
electrical system.
* If you require transp rtation assistance during an evacuation,
register In advance wi~h the Civil Defense and Office of Emergency,
Management In your county.


I
*To prepare for outages, it is wise to have plenty of fresh batteries
for flashlights and radios.
SIf you have a gasoline-powered electric generator, use it In well-
ventilated areas and only plug In Individual appliances. Never
connect a generator to a wall outlet of your home or building's
electrical system since that can cause damage to your equipment
and can be a life-threatening danger to your family, neighbors and
repair crews. Be sure to have adequate fuel for your generator and
manage consumption by running It for only a few hours at a time.
* Prepare a list of essential items you would need Iti case you are
evacuated from your home and have them readily available. Some of
these Items could Include medications, insulin, contact
lenses/supplies, extra eyeglasses and denture needs.
If your power goes out, wait at least five minutes before
reporting It to SVEC office In order to give our
automatic equipment time to restore power.
Listen to your local radio and TV stations for
weather updates and Information from SVEC.

AND THE GOSPEL J T BE .'fLISHED AMONG ALL NATIONS MARK 13:10

Suwannee Valley




,- :i ,


"Beware the Spirit of


While the movie The Da Vinci Co4e is receiving
mixed reviews; thousands likely millions will see
the film over the next several weeks. Some might be
asking, "Why does this film receive so much media at-
tention and cause alarm within the Christian commu-
nity?"
In an effort to answer these questions I want to high-
light Dan Brown's book and Ron Howard's film di-
rection of The Da Vinci Code.
The plot may be summarized as follows: While in
Paris on business, Harvard symbol expert Robert
Langdon (played by Tom Hanks) receives an urgent
late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Lou-
vre (in Paris) has been murdered inside the museum.
Near the body, police have found baffling symbols.
Langdon solves the enigmatic riddle, and is stunned to
discover it leads to a trail of clues hidden in the works
of Da Vinci. These clues are visible for all to see, and
yet ingeniously disguised by the painter. Langdon
joins forces with a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie,
Neveu, and together they learn that the late curator was
involved in the group known as the Priory of Sion an
actual secret society. In a breathless race through Paris,
London and beyond, Langdon and Sophie Neveu (the
name which interestingly means "New Wisdom")
match wits with a faceless powerbroker who appears
.to work for Opus Dei a clandestine, Vatican-sanc-
tioned Catliolic organization believed to have long
plotted to seize the Priory's secret. Unless Langdon
and Sophie can decipher the puzzle in time, -the Prio-
ry's secret and a stunning historical truth will be lost
forever. (http://www.imdb.com/SearchPlotWrit-
ers?bondish)
What is this hidden secret? I could tell you to read
the book or go to the movie but let me save you the
trouble.
The secret is basically that the Roman Catholic
Church under the banner of Christianity has plotted to
maintain social, political and male-dominated power
,by keeping secret that Jesus was just a prophet with a
radical message. He was not divine as declared by the
Church. Rather this teaching was a socio-political in-
vention of the church and the Holy Roman Emperor,
Constantine. In fact, Jesus was very human, he mar-
ried Mary Magdalene, had a baby named Sarah, While
Mary was pregnant, Jesus died and never rose again
from the dead. The book claims and its author be-
lieves that the church suppressed ancient documents
known as the Gnostic gospels which present Jesus in a
very much different light than the four gospels we read
in the New Testament. We could be more detailed, b,ut
in a nutshell that is the plot and main message of the
book and movie.
This series will compare the claims of Dan Brown's
The Da Vinci Code to that of historical fact and Bibli-
cal truth.
I personally believe that the The Da Vinci Code
(and dozens of other books like it that are now being
consumed by a skeptical and unbelieving public) will
add fuel to the fire of doubt, skepticism, unbelief and'
even religious bios against Christianity.
We are called as the church' and as elders of the.
church in particular to defend the faith and guard the
flock along with the doctrine of church so that these
teachings remain pure and faithful to God's Word.
Dan Brown really does not present anything new.
In fact, he was challenged in court that he did not give
proper credit to his sources in writing this most recent
version of an ancient falsehood.
The falsehood can in fact be traced back to its early
beginnings in the later part of the first century.
Dan Brown's tale is a skillful rehashing of an an-
cient and dangerous heresy of which John the Apostle
warned his readers 19 centuries ago.
Throughout the letter (sometimes called epistle) of
1 John the aged apostle warned his readers and hearers
to beware false teachers who were endangering their
faith and the faith of their families.


Let's review that warning in 1 John 4:1-6 (NASV)
1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the
spirits to see whether they are from God, because
many false prophets have gone out into the world.
2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every'spir-
it that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh
is from God;
3 And every spirit that does not confess Jesus is
not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist; of
which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is
already in the world.
4 You are from God, little children, and have over-
come them; because greater is He who is in you than
he who is in the world.
5 They are from the world; therefore they speak as
from the world, and the world listens to them.
6 We are from God; he who knows God listens to
us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By,
this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
Ancient and Dangerous Heresies Are Among Us:
It is commonly agreed by reputable' scholars today
that the Apostle John was seeking'to combat, erroneous
teachings beginning to take hold in the church during
the last couple decades of the first century. A2nd cen-
tury Church father known as Irenaeus wrote in his
treatise, "Against Heresies," and identified John's op-
ponent as Cerinthus. He further described his heresy
as:
Jesus was not born of a virgin, but as being the son
of Joseph and Mary according to the ordinary course
of human generation. He was nevertheless more right-
eous, prudent and wise than other men. Moreover, af-
ter his baptism, Christ (the Messianic personhood sent
from the Supreme Ruler) descended on Jesus in the
form of a dove. From then on Jesus proclaimed this
Supreme Ruler to be his Heaverily Father and began to
perform miracles. Bui at last the Christ (personhood)
departed from Jesus, and then Jesus suffered and
died..." (Against Heresies, 3:4)
>From John's letter we can reconstruct some basic
elements of their teaching: They denied...
Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God (1 Jn. 2:22;
5:1,5)
Christ had come in: the flesh (UJn. 4:2; 2 John 7)
The authority of Christ's commands (1 Jn. 2:4)
Their own sinfulness (1 Jn. 1:8, 10)
Obedience to God as needed to have fellowship
with God (1 Jn. 1:6; 2:29; 3:6,10)
Dan Brown draws upon the discovery of writings
known as the Gnostic gospels.
These Gnostic gospels are a group of documents
found in Egypt in the 1940s, not to be confused with
the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Gnostic gospels date back
to the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD. They were written by
divergent 'Christians' who had a different view of Je-
sus than taught by the apostles. Historically it is clear
the Gnostic gospels are not the earliest Christian
records of the life of Christ.
In The Da Vinci Code Dan Brown purports his book
to be nothing but mere fiction, yet it fosters the basic
position of the Gnostio gospels and casts these ideas
into the premise of the story. The story assumes that
Jesus was not resurrected and did not claim to be God,
but rather was married to Mary Magdalene. The Gnos-
tic claim is that Jesus' true, original teachings are
found in the Gnostic writings. Also claimed is the view
that the Biblical gospels were reshaped much later by
the Church to present a divine, resurrected Christ.
If we are questioned, "It's only a novel -so why do
we criticize it?" Our reply is, "This book subtlely and.
dangerously seeks to make the case that the Gnostic-
Jesus was the one who lived, not the real Jesus as por-
trayed in the New Testament Gospels. Yet, the schol-
arly world sees very little, if .any, evidence that this is
the case. There are plenty of other incongruities and
oddities about The Da Vinci Code, but I'll just mention
one. The story lifts up the Gnostic gospels as the
"truth" and depicts the church as a repressive regime

lived happily together in this world? Fam-
ilies would remain intact, children would
not get in trouble, divorces would cease,
hatred would disappear, racial issues
would be no more, no one would be lone-
ly or afraid, all fighting would stop, crime
and violence would be no more, everyone
everywhere would care about everyone
else and there would be unity of all people
on earth. I know the world we live in is
not a perfect world, but the creator is the
only perfect God. God tells us in a very
short scripture in His word how to have

this-kind of unity today on this very earth.
"Behold, how goodand how pleasant it is
for brethren to dwell together in unity."
Psalms 133:1 If all people would act on
His word and live it daily, what a wonder-
ful world this would be.
As I write this today I think of someone
I know personally who is going through, a
.terrible ordeal, she is, lonely, afraid, with-
out finances, has been beaten by her hus-
band while her children had to witness the
scene, then came the police, the restrain-
ing order. Life for them is not the same,
that was her Mother's Day. This is not a-
life of unity or a good and pleasant home.
I cannot help but think how different
families life would be if they learned to

live together in unity. The children would
still be happy, the family whole and they
would not be living in constant fear and
dread. I realize not all of us have such ex-
treme situations in our lives and for that,
we must be thankful. I know I am very
thankful I have the most patient and lov-
ing husband and daughter, and that is
good and pleasant.
No matter how good and pleasant.your
family may be, or your church or job, at
some point or time something has gone
wrong. The stress level may become too
high, maybe tempers flar, or you just dis-
agree. Whate\ er the case, there may be
moments that are not full of unity in all of
our lives. This is when we need to re-
member to follow the Lord's path to
pleasant lives. "Behold how good and
pleasant it is for brethren to dwell togeth-
er in unity." Psalms 133:1
You see, God tells all of us the answer
to living good and pleasant lives is right
in His word: Everyone needs to learn to
live together in unity. I hear so often of
churches where, the members cannot seem
to get along, where there is envy, strife
and confusion. Sometimes members split
into two or more churches, sometimes
some just give up and lose out on their re-
lationship with God, sometimes they just
keep trying churches. They are missing
out on the good and pleasant lives God.
has for them if they would live in unity.
If all of us would learn to live in, unity
among our own families, circle of friends,
neighbors, church members, co workers,
classmates, all people everywhere we
come in contact with, our lives would tru-


ly become more good and pleasant.
I hear of so many situations where fam-
ilies are being torn apart by divorce, chil-
dren's lives uprooted and in turmoil. Fam-
ilies where members have just cut off oth-
er family members, co workers stabbing
one another in the back, children living
with adults who have seemingly gone
crazy. It is like people have forgotten how
to care about the feelings or needs of oth-
ers. There is hatred among people just be-
cause of their color or beliefs. Where is
the unity in any of this? Is this a pleasant
and goqd way to live? No, this world is a
mess and all of us are part of the problem.
Everyone, no matter who you are, has
been mad at someone, or upset at some
point and, it was not good and pleasant.
We must learn as Christians to follow
God's path, and then we will have unity in
our lives. If everyone would learn to live
in unity with the people in their own little
world where they are, eventually everyone
everywhere would be living in unity
throughout the world.
In the Bible, we read in Psalms 25:4
."Show me Your ways, 0 Lord, teach me
Your paths...." Do we really want good
and pleasant lives, lives full of unity? If
our answer is yes,'then let, us put in to
practice these two scriptures Psalms
133:1 "Behold how good and pleasant it
is for brethren to dwell together in uni-
ty." and Psalms 25:4 "Show me your
ways, O. Lord, teach me your paths..."
The answer is clear as we seek the Lord,
following in His paths, we can learn to
dwell in unity and have gobd and.pleas-
ant lives!

Aunt Pams KIDS CORNER

Unity


By Pam Campbell
I Wonder if any of you kids have ever thought
about what unity is. Unity is where everyone
gets along and no one fights or disagrees with
each other.
This would be a great world if everyone got
along families, friends, neighbors, people at
church and kids at school everyone every-
where. There would not be unhappy kids, un-
happy adults, people hating each other, fight-
ing, families breaking up;.people hurting other
people, no more wars, there would only be
good and pleasant things in our world. ,
God tells us in His word, the Bible, how to
have unity in our families, schools,' churches
and even in the entire world. We find in the
Bible in the book of Psalms 133:1 these words
from God to us, "Behold, how good and how
pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in
unity." If each of us, whether we are children or
adults, would learn to get along with each oth-


er, treat each other with love and care about
others, we would be living in unity. You see, in
accordance with that verse in the Bible, when
we learn to live together in unity, we will live
good and pleasant lives.
I know kids and adults sometimes disagree or
maybe say or do hateful or bad things to each
other. That is not living in unity, and it sure is
not good and pleasant. I know all of you would
like it if everyone could live good and pleasant
lives in unity with each other. The good news,
kids, is we can! God wants us to follow in His
paths so we will.
, He tells us something else in Psalms 25: 4
"Show me Your ways, 0 Lord, teach me Your
paths...."
Read God's word the Bible, talk to Him, just
as He promises in this verse. He will teach you
how to follow in His paths. When we learn to
follow in His paths, we will be able to live in
unity and have good and pleasant, happy lives!

Achoo! Fur is not a kev factor in animal allergies


One of the latest crazes in the pet industry is the careful breeding
of dogs to create "hypoallergenic pets." Some of this breeding
involves boosting the numbers of dogs that are less likely to cause
allergic reactions, while in other cases, two different breeds are
mixed to create a "designer" dog, purported to be the best thing
since sliced bread for allergy sufferers. Case .in point: the
labradoodle (labrador-poodle mix).
One must understand that there is a certain fallacy behind the,
allergy-free pet. By looking at the definition of hypoallergenic and
recognizing what substances cause animal allergies in people, it can
become evident that some individuals are paying, a high price tag for
a pup that may be no less likely to cause allergies than a run-of-the-
mill mutt.
DO HYPOALLERGENIC DOGS EXIST?
With the term "hypoallergenic" plastered on all sorts of products
this day, individuals may question just what the word means.
Hypoallergenic items have a reduced tendency to cause allergic
reactions. However, since the prefix "hypo" means "less" and not
"none," there is still the possibility that a hypoallergenic product (or
animal) could cause allergy sufferers to have a reaction. This is
particularly true for asthma sufferers whostill may be affected by a
dog with a hypoallergenic name tag.
A big misconception among potential pet owners is that it is the fur
of the animal that is .responsible for allergies. However, according to
allergists, this is simply not the case. In fact, the urine, saliva and

On the Sixth Day of
Hurricane Preparedness
On the Sixth Day of Hurri-
cane Preparedness the Ameri-
can Red Cross recommends
that you purchase a GENER-
ATOR. A generator can be a
convenient source of power
after a hurricane strikes. Gen-
erators should be properly in-
stalled and used safely.

On the Seventh Day of
Hurricane Preparedness
On the Severith Day of Hur-
ricane Preparedness .the
American Red Cross recom-
mends that you purchase a
FLASHLIGHT. As simple as
a Flashlight is, it can become
a very important tool during
and after disaster strikes.
Every Family Disaster Sup-
plies Kit should contain a
Flashlight and spare batteries.

On the Eighth Day of
Hurricane Preparedness
On the Eighth Day of Hur-
ricane Preparedness, the
American Red Cross recom-
mends that you purchase a
complete FAMILY DISAS-
TER SUPPLIES KIT. A fami-
ly will cope best by preparing
for a disaster before it strikes.
One way to prepare is by as-
sembling a Family Disaster
Supplies Kit. Once disaster
hits, you won't have time to
shop and search for supplies.

On the Ntn of
Hurricane Preparedness
On the Ninth Day of Hurri-
cane. Preparedness the Ameri-
can Red Cross recommends
that you purchase a SLEEP-
ING BAG. If you have to
evacuate your home, a sleep-
ing bag will provide you with
extra comfort when you arrive
at an American .Red Cross
,shelter.

On the 10th Day of
Hurricane Preparedness
On the TenthDay of Hurri-
cane Preparedness the Ameri-
can Red Cross recommends
that you purchase a FIRST
AID KIT. Because the first
five minutes of a medical
emergency are critical every
individual and family should
have a First Aid Kit in their
home and vehicle and on their
boat.

On the 11th Day of
Hurricane Preparedness
On the Eleventh Day of
Hurricane Preparedness the
American Red Cross recom-
mends that you purchase
needed supplies to install
HURRICANE SHUTTERS
on every window of the home.
Installing hurricane shutters
on all windows of a home will
help to mitigate the damage
due to a storms severe winds.

On the 12th Day of
Hurricane Preparedness
On the Twelfth Day of Hur-
ricane Preparedness the
American Red Cross recom-
mends that you purchase
DUCT TAPE. Duct tape is
one of the many items that
should be in a Family Disaster
Supplies Kit.

For more information on
preparation for the upcoming
hurricane season and other
emergiences, please go to

cross/ds or go to wvww.Flori-

How to keep kids
Busy in the garden
During summer
vacation
(ARA) School's-ou-t.l! --
So now what do you do
with the kids for the next
three months that
doesn't cost a fortune?
Why not teach them to
garden? From preparing
the soil to selecting the
plants and watering
them to watching them
grow, gardening is great
wholesome
entertainment the whole
family can enjoy.
To ensure children
enjoy gardening, it's
important to plan for a
good experience and
plant the seeds for
success early on. If
children's first
experiences with
gardening are fun and
successful, chances are
good they'll develop a
green thumb that will
stay with them for life.
1. Set realistic goals
and don't expect too
much. It's better to care
for a small space rather
than overwhelming both
you and your child with
the challenges of a larger
area. Perhaps you can
mark off an area of a
larger garden that is
dedicated to your child's
care.
2. Focus on the fun. For
younger children, soil
preparation may be the
most fun part of
gardening. There are few
things children enjoy
more than digging in the *
dirt. Let them choose
those activities they
enjoy most while still
encouraging them to try
new activities.
3. Encourage
enthusiasm with quick,
positive results. Plant
seeds that mature
quickly. Vegetables are a
good choice for young
children. They germinate
quickly and can be eaten
when mature. Children


gardenin!


may even like to eat
vegetables that they have
grown.
4. Think safety. Choose
flowers and plants that
...ar .non-.tfxic. AlsoiJ.ook..
for di-.ease and pest-
resistant plants. Children
love to touch and fingers
often wind up in
mouths, so organic and
pesticide-free plants are
safest. Vegetables that
are fairly problem free
include beans,
cucumbers, onions, peas,
radishes, spinach and
rhubarb.
5. Let children decide.
From the time you
choose where to put the
garden, let your child
help make the important
decisions. You will, of '
course, need to provide
the proper guidance,
such as explaining the
importance of sufficient
sun, good soil and
available water. Make
sure children feel they
are responsible. You can
help, but don't do it all
for them.
6. Get creative.
Children delight in the
unexpected. Many
garden vegetables are
now available in unusual
sizes. Speckled beans,
yellow pear tomatoes,
red carrots and
miniature cucumbers are
all fun even for
experienced gardeners.
The funny colors and
shapes help add spice to
the overall, gardening
experience.
7. Provide the right
tools. Children should
have their own tools for
use in the garden. Not
only does this make
them feel grown up, it
also facilitates a positive
experience. Choose tools
that are sized for small
hands and tasks. But
make sure they're
durable enough to do
real gardening tasks, .
because kids love to
mimic what adults do.
A new line of


children's garden tools
by The Budding'
Gardeners from Troy-Bilt
features solid wood
handles and stainless
steeL-implements for real
digging, raking and
sweeping. Yet they're
kid-sized with rounded
edges for safety and
painted with bright,
playful colors. The
Complete Gardening Kit
includes a kid-sized
wheelbarrow, watering
can, three hand tools,
garden gloves, seed
packets (with easy
growing, low-
maintenance plants) and,
a how-to manual. The
line also includes a set of
six long-handled tools, a
garden tote set with
three hand tools, and a
children's gardening
apron everything
needed to get young
gardeners started off
right.
8. Appeal to the senses.
Choose plants that
appeal to sight, feel and
smell. Pumpkins and
sunflowers are good
choices visually because
they are large and bright.
Various herbs have
distinctive scents, as do
various fragrant
flowering plants such as
honeysuckle and lilac.
Plants with fuzzy,
bumpy or waxed
surfaces are also fun for
little hands to touch.
9. Don't rush. Enjoy
the quiet time you have
with your child. This is
an opportunity for
parents and
grandparents to bond
and listen in an
otherwise noisy,
electronic obsessed
world. More than
anything, gardening is a
great way to spend time
together as a family and
have some good old-
fashioned family fun
without spending a lot of
money.
10. Make gardening a
year-round family


gafa
activity. Just because the
ground is covered with
snow or rain is falling
doesn't mean the interest
in gardening has to end.
