needed rainfall to almost all of Florida.
Thankful, winds associated \\ ith the
storm were weaker than predicted.
In preparation for the storm, city,

the time. The center said the country


could receive 3-5 inches of rainfall from
Alberto. Officials said during the con-
ference call Alberto was unpredictable
and declared it "a very ugly system."
Emergency Management stayed in
close contact with the weather service
around the clock to keep close tabs on
how the storm would impact Suwannee
County.
.Summer school classes were canceled
for June 13 in the event the schools
were needed as shelters.,
"The National Weather Sert ice indi-

would be similar to the Storm of the
Century," said Emergency M\ a n.a 'ement
Director 'County Coordinator Johnny
Wooley June 12. "You're looking at
probably\ a 9-10 foot sloinm siurge on the
coastline and probably\ tropical force

Gardening

Tips 9
Are you tired of being a watering
slave to your plants and want ones that
will survive if you leave them for a
week or more? Tired of planting flow-
ers and having the deer devour them?
Well read on, as this month's tips will
give you suggestions as to which trees,
shrubs, groundcoers, palms, vines
and flowering plants are considered
drought resistant, fairly low mainte-
nance, including a couple of perennial
flowering plants that are often avoided
by our little forest friends.
You can probably surmise that most
of. the plants and trees recommended
are native to:this area. Although those
listed below are reported to' tolerate
dry conditions better than others, they
\ ill require regular watering for sev-
eral % weeks to about six months before
they become established well enough
to tolerate drought conditions.
The follUoing trees are hot only
drought resistant but most are consid-
ered native to North Florida: Box El-
der, Redbud, American Holly, South-
emn Magnolia, American Sycamore,
Dogawood, Wax Myrtle, Sand Pine;
Slash Pine. Live Oak*, and Pond Cy-
press. 'Includes Bluejack, Turkey,
Laurel. Bur, Mlyrtle. Water, Chesmut.
Shtunard Post and Black Oaks
The following afri'e :palms also
will not disappoint you- Needle Palm,
Dwarf Palmento, Cabbage Palm and
Saw Palmetto. Recommended shrubs
are: Lead Plant, Beauty Bush, Rose-
mary, Sweet Fern, Coral Bean, Ju-
nipers, Gallbenry, Yaupon Holly, Wax
Myrtle, Cherry Laurel, Blueberr arnd
Boxxwoods.
Groundcover plants are also impor-
tant in our garden: try Golden Creep-
er, Beach Sunflower, Gopher Apple,
N latch" ood. Sea Pursale and Sea
Oats. The following vines will do well
in our area: Crossvine, Marine Ivy,
Carolina Yellow Jasmine, Honeysuck-
le, Virginia Creeper and Native Wiste-
ria. Flowering plants that do Well dur-
ing periods of little rainfall and seem
to be disliked by deer are:.dianthus
and white cone flower (Echinacea).
Other hardy flowering plants include:
SLirope,' Phlo\, Da\ Lilies, 'Sedum,
Spiderworts. Cupheas and Lavender.
Happy Gardening ihni ile Live
Oak Garden Club!


Q 'What type of paint should I use
for painting my bathroom?
., ,.,,. :. n, iPa wall -coverings a&id flooring materials tor
1 all bathrooms must b e appropriately chosen for
durability and water resistance. A water-base paint
is acceptable throughout most of the interior of
your home; however, interior painting of the bathroom
requires an oil-base-enamel-paint. In general, materials
that stand up well to.excess moisture are:
Plastic laminate
Vinyl-coated wallpaper ,
Semi-gloss enamel paint
Masonry block
Cast marble
When choosing colors, remember that light cool colors will
make a room appear lager, as will painting walls and ceilings
the same color. If you have a large room with a high ceiling, a
dark, color on the ceiling \ill lower it.

Q: The athlete in our family is our
daughter. Only boys need mouth guards,
right?-1 "
A. Wrong. Anybody who plays a sport,
particularly a contact sport, is susceptible
to above-the-neck injury ranging from a fat
lip to a concussion. In between, there are
possible broken teeth, bitten tongues and
other injuries to the face jaws. Mouth
guards are effective in preventing and/or
minimizing damage from those injuries.
And girls are just as much at risk as boys.
Mouth guards cushion blows that might
otherwise result in chipped or broken teeth
and severe lacerations to the lips, tongue
or face. By serving as a shock absorber
of sorts, it is believed that mouth guards
may reduce the severity and incidence of
concussions. In obvious contact sports
like football and rugby, mouth guards are
standard. But watch the action in a
traditional non-contact sport like
basketball, soccer or field hockey, and
you'll see irre .:.ir,iii i, Iu a mouth

Products for contact lens care
Over 30 million Americans wear contact lenses, and 90% wear such
lenses for vision correction. At the present, there are more than 100
non-prescription products available for contact lens care, which makes
main-tenance and care of lenses confusing. Three types of contact
lenses exist: hard lenses, rigid gas permeable lenses, and soft lenses.
Each type of lens requires different methods and products for
maintenance; there-fore it is important to ensure familiarity with the
specific contact lens type a person may be wearing.
Care of soft contact lenses includes daily cleaning, disinfecting, and
weekly enzymatic cleaning. Daily cleaners remove dirt and dust that
has gathered on the lens during the day. Weekly enzymatic cleaners
further remove tough particles. Saline solutions are used for rinsing and
storing..
New to the market are multi-purpose products that contain various
com-binations of daily cleaners, disinfectants, and saline solutions.
Multi-purpose solutions are best used with disposable lenses and are not
in-tended for extended wear soft contact lenses. Consult a pharmacist or
eye care professional for help in choosing the appropriate products to
ensure that lenses are comfortable and lasting.

Candidates running for
political offices and their
campaign workers are re-
minded by the Florida De-

(FDOT) that campaign
signs .are not allowed on
state right-of-way,: no mat-

Florida law prohibits any
sign on state right-of-way
other than FDOT signs..
Placing campaign signs
* along the roadways on pri-
vate property without the
permission of the property
owner is also illegal.
FDOT crews spend many
hours removing political
signs from the state right-
of-way, with the numbers
increasing as it gets closer
to the general election in
November.
"Our crews could be
working on other tasks that
are much more needed than
having to repeatedly pick

EOC opened the Suwannee
County Coliseum Monday
night as a storm shelter,
which also offers a pet-friend-
ly area.
"Gov. (Jeb) Bush ordered a
mandatory evacuation on the
coastline from Wakulla to
Levy counties Monday after-
noon. We may have an impact
from some of those folks
from those counties moving
over this way," Wooley said
regarding the opening of the
shelter.
Wooley and his staff, along
with county and city officials
were in partial activation at
the EOC all Monday night
and remained on standby
June 13 as the storm came
ashore.
"We really love what we do
and will be here to assist any-
one," said Assistant Emer-

The campaign signs that
are removed ,are taken to
the nearest maintenance
yard and stored until some-
one- claims them. If un-
claimed by the general
election, they are taken to
the local landfills. ', .
The FDOQT. asks, for the-,
cooperation of everyone
associated with a political
campaign in not putting,
signs up on the state right-


any damage due to the storm,
no matter how minimal,
should call the department at
364-3405. That means if
you've called your insurance
agency, 911 and or others
about your loss, you should
still call the EOC and report
these losses to them.
By mid-day June 13,
weather forecasters were
pointing out disturbances off
the African coast that could
be the next weather alert.
Wooley said Gov. Bush
signed an executive order
calling a state of emergency
for Florida Monday morning.
The Suwannee County Com-
mission declared a state of
emergency for the county
June 12, which lasts for seven
days. This allows the county
to be reimbursed by FEMA
for expenses involved with

Teachers are extremely important in to-
day's society. All children must be taught
how to read and to compute numbers.
Teachers have one of the most important
jobs in the world because what we do will
impact lives forever. I am very proud to be
a classroom teacher. I understand the is-
sues and concerns of teachers and students
I will serve the children and all school em-
ployees equally well because I am blessed
to have a teacher's heart. ,
As a little girl in the sixth grade, I want-
ed to be a history teacher., I have been able
to live mN life's dream for 31 years. I have'
been honored to be a District Teacher of
the Year in tiwo different counties. My stu-
dents have nominated me for \Vhos Who
Among America's Teachers many times. I
love what I have been called to do. Teach-
ing to me is not a job but a life's work. I
believe outstanding schoolteachers have
been given a.gift from God. The rewards
are great when we help children learn and
become successful adults.'l believe Suwan-
nee County is fortunate to have many high-
ly skilled teachers. I know. Suwannee
County has a good school system. I hope to
be able to help Suwannee County continue
in this path of success.
I see two areas of concern for education
in Suwannee County. First, I believe our-
faculty needs more help with discipline is-
sues. Our teachers cannot teach when a few
students are continual problems. Teachers
should not be afraid to use the Teacher Au-
thority Act/Statute 1003.32. The legislature
created this law so teachers can have dis-
ruptive students removed from their class.
Some teachers spend too much time with
discipline issues and not enough time nec-
essary for instruction.
Next, is the need for open, honest com-
munication among the employees, the
teachers' union, the School Board and the
Superintendent. I believe most situations
and areas of concern could be resolved if
everyone would sit down and put the topic,
of concern on the table for. discussion.
America was founded on the idea'of corn-
! ro'mine aihd. sonmeti wl MlW' il-at8 v'
compromise for the benefit of all involved.'
The two areas I have mentioned are' is-
sues that cause teachers to feel unimpor-
tant. Teachers, as well as school related
employees, must know they are valued and
supported. I have supported teachers, bus


drivers, custodians,
secretaries, para-pro-
fessionals and cafete-
ria, workers as presi-
dent of an education
association. The
Teacher and ESP
Contract is a legal,
binding. :agreement
that both parties have
negotiated and ac-
cepted. School em- Jane Lowe
ployees do not have
the energy or time to stress over the con-
tract being broken. The teacher's energy
must be spent ;in the classroom with their
students.
I have been married to Terry Lowe of
Wellborn for 33 years. We have three chil-
dren. Our daughter, Tara, teaches remedial
reading. She has a master's degree in art
historN from the University of Florida
iUF i. Tiffany has an AA from North Flori-
da Community College (NFCC) and is
married to Brandor Stubbs of Lake City.
William graduated from Heritage Institute
of Massage and will continue to pursue a
degree in sports medicine at UF. Terry at-
tended Wellborn School. William attended
Suwannee High School in the 11th grade
and ran track. All three children attended
NFCC. We attend Wellborn Baptist Church
where I teach Sunday school and sing in
the choir. I enjoy being around people. I
am a good listener and pay attention. I do
not "sit" on the fence. I am a decision mak-
er. I know education and I am familiar with
the Florida Legislature. I am willing and
able to defend what I believe is just and
f a ir :
S. If the voters of District 4 select me to
represent them on the School Board, I will
represent my constituents well. I will have
the time to meet with parents and school
employees to discuss their issues. I look
forward to meeting you as I learn more
about the fine people of Suwannee County.
One of my favorite Bible verses is from
Matthew 6:21,."For where your treasure is,
"thhr'ewilltyur heart also 13800ff r04sure
and heart are 'children and education. It is
my life's krork. I am well equipped to help
our school system continue to improve ed-
ucation in Suwannee County. I humbly
seek your support in my endeavor to repre-
sent District 4.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Dear Editor:
I have a dozen of these gopher tortoises living on my
five acres, in wooded areas.
They cause me no harm, so I leave them alone. I've
named this one Hector.
I just have one question.
Why are they still considered an endangered species?
While their numbers have declined near the coast to de-
velopment; that is not the case in Suwannee County.
As a structural engineer, I am often asked, "Can they
undermine a house'foundation?"
In my opinion, the answer is yes, in certain cases.
One has to get a permit from the game and fish com-
mission to be able to remove them.
On-line permits are available at:
http://myfwc.com/permits/Tortoise/default.asp
Lately I've seen a number crossing CR 250.
Like the Armadillo, they end up as roadkill. Due to
their size, they are a danger to cars.
I. am suggesting the Suwannee Democrat publish a
warning to drivers to slow down in areas where the go-
phers cross the road.
Sincerely,
Fred Niemczenia

By Daniel S. Wheeler
Often I am asked by reporters,
"What harm does it do to burn a flag?"
This question usually comes from' -
young men and women, most of whom
aren't veterans, and I frequently sense
that they really don't understand why
this issue is important.
Recently, I was asked this question:
"Tommy Lasorda told the story of a
flag burning during a Dodger game in
1976 where Rick Monday ran out on
the field and tore the flag away from a
protestor. When they became aware of
what had happened, the crowd stood
and sang 'God Bless America.' Doesn't
that prove that 'we don't need the flag-
protection amendment?"
When I 'heard' the question, I was
reminded of what Gen.. Patrick H.
Brady, Medal of Honor recipient,
said. He pointed out that nobody can
change your mind or my mind about
protecting our flag. It's the children
of America that we have to think
about.
What happens when they lose, or are
no longer taught, respect for our flag?
What will happen when an enemy
threatens our nation, or even attacks
our country, and our moral fiber has
become so desensitized-our patriotism
has beenso eroded-that ordinary citi-
zens aren't willing to stand and fight
for the United States?
Brady reflects on those who have
died in battle, and those who risked
their lives for this great country. He
says that the men who wear the Medal
of Honor risked their lives for their
country-many of them died-but he
wonders if they would be willing to
risk their lives for the "country we are


becoming."
Then I think about those thousands..
of men and women singing "God Bless
America" in Dodger Stadium. Why
were they doing it? Well, obviously
they did it because they loved their
flag.
But why do they love their flag, and
why do they love their country? It's
not something you are born with, this
patriotism and love of our flag. It's
something you learn from your par-
ents, your teachers, your Sunday
School teachers, your drill instructors,
your life experiences.
. Throughout, the lives of those who
rose to. their feet, we had laws protect-
ing Old Glory. Throughout their lives,
they'd been taught that America was a
good nation, in fact, the greatest nation
on earth. Many probably risked their
lives in her defense. They understood- -- "
that "the tree of Liberty is watered
with the blood of patriots."
That's why they stood and sang.
But what of this generation, and of
the next? What are they being taught

about love of country? What are they
being taught about the greatness of
America? How many of them will start
each school day pledging their alle-
giance to our flag, as most of us did?
How many of them will learn the
proper way to respect her, and what
she means and why patriotism is im-
portant?
And what of those who grow up
learning that the flag is just one sym-
bol among many, just one point of
view, not deserving of any special
recognition, dignity or respect? How
will they reconcile the idea that we
prove our love for our nation's flag by


allowing those who hate America to
desecrate it without penalty?
Twenty years from now, when an-
other Rick Monday snatches a flag
from someone who is trying to bum it,
will the crowd still sing "God Bless
America," or will it rise in anger be-
cause the game has been delayed?
It's certainly true-as we've heard
people say-one person burning a flag,
or urinating on it, or defecating on it,
or trampling it under his feet, will not
harm Old Glory. But it's not true that
no harm is done.,
The harm is done if the American
people fail to respond to such vile and
hurtful conduct. The harm is done only
if, by our apathy, we condone the de-
filing of the banner that has draped the
caskets of our American heroes. Ed-
mund Burke once said: "The only
thiiiig necessary for the triumph of evil
is for good men to do nothing." Failure
to protect our flag by law is not a cele-
bration of liberty; it is the celebration
of evil. A great nation cannot preserve
its greatness by turning a blind eye and
a deaf ear to that which is wrong, to
that which is destructive, to that which
is immoral and evil.
What harm does it do to burn a flag?
Over-time it destroys the very fabric
of our nation. It undermines the good-
ness that makes us great; and it en-
sures that future generations will not
stand and spontaneously sing "God
Bless America" because they will not
know that-once-God did.

Legion National Headquarters in Indi-
anapolis, Indiana, 317-630-1200..


I Am the Flag of America
I am the flag of the United States of America.
My name is Old Glory.
I fly atop the world's tallest buildings.
I stand watch in America's halls of justice.
I fly majestically over institutions of learning.
I stand guard with power in the world.
Look up and see me.

I stand for peace, honor, truth and justice.
I stand for freedom.
I am confident.
I am arrogant.
I am proud.

When I am flown with my fellow banners,
My head is a little higher,
My colors a little truer.


t bow to no one!
I am recognized all over the world.
I am worshipped I am saluted.
0 am loved I am revered.
I am respected and I am feared.

I have fought in every battle
of every war
for more then 200 years.

1 was flown at Valley Forge,
Gettysburg, Shiloh and Appamatox.
i was there at San Juan Hill,
the trenches of France,
in the Argonne Forest,
Anzio, Rome and the beaches of Normandy.

Guam, Okinawa, Korea and
KheSan, Saigon, Vietnam know me.
t was there.
I led my troops, I was dirty,. battlewom and tired,
But my soldiers cheered me and I was proud.

I have been burned, torn and trampled on the
streets of countries I have helped set free.
It does not hurt.for I am invincible.
I have been soiled upon, burned, torn and
trampled in the streets of my country.
And when it's done by those
Whom I've served in battle it hurts.
but I shall overcome for I am strong.

have slipped the bonds of Earth
,and stood watch over the uncharted
frontiers of space from my vantage point on the moon.
I have borne silent witness to all of America's finest
hours.

but my finest hours are yet to come.

When I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I am flown at half-mast to honor my soldier,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms of a grieving parent
at the grave of their fallen son or daughter,
1 am proud. ,

Who is Florida's


clean-water governor?


By Linda Young, Director,
Clean Water Network of Florida
The Florida governor's race is head-
ing into crunch time. Political ads and
headlines will start heating up this
summer, just like the water that fuels
hurricanes and algae blooms. Many is-
sues are in play in the campaigns. But
think about it: What's more important
than clean water? Linda
Blue waves, clear lakes, springs and
rivers are the geese that lay Florida's golden
eggs; the reason we're the top tourist destina-
tion in the world; and the gift that makes our
cash registers ring. Without clean water,
we're nothing.
We need a governor who will stand up for
clean water-not someone who will repay big-
bucks corporate campaign contributors by
letting them use our public waters as a pri-
vate sewer.
This election, we have a chance to elect a
"clean water" governor. Who is it? We don't
know yet. That's why our grassroots group,
Clean Water Network of Florida, is giving
Floridians an opportunity to take a simple
step to pin down each candidate's position
on water policy. Everyone can participate for
the cost of five postcard stamps. Floridians
are sending postcards to each of the top four
candidates: Jim Davis and Rod Smith on the
Democratic ticket; and Charlie Crist and
Tom Gallagher on the Republican ticket.
The cards ask the candidates to commit, in
writing, whether they will do four specific '
things to clean up our waters:
Work diligently to reduce and eliminate
mercury and dioxin releases that end up in
the fish we eat;
Support a moratorium on any permits to
add nutrients in polluted waters;
Champion a movement to stop destroy-
ing the wetlands that protect us from storm
surges; and,
Abandon the flawed Impaired Waters'
Rule-which the US. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency ruled illegal-and that the state is
using to avoid making polluters clean up.
Over 4,000 cards have already been print-
ed for the candidates. Smith, Crist, Gallagher
and Davis are supposed to send the card
back to you; if they don't, you'll know which
candidates don't share your concerns. As the
candidates receive thousands of cards, they'll
see that this is a top issue for all of us. You
send Clean Water Network a card, too, so we
can keep track and inform voters.


Clean water isn't a partisan issue.
I travel throughout the state, talking
to citizens of all kinds who are
blindsided by the rapid decline of
their local waters: algae blooms,
dead fish, manatees, dolphins and
sea turtles washing ashore, dead
zones on the ocean floor, blighted
reefs, sick lakes and cloudy springs.
Young These people-from airboat clubs to.
schoolchildren; from League of
Women Voters chapters to Scuba and fishing
clubs-are desperate for environmental leader-
ship out of Tallahassee.
Stories about gross water pollution will hit
the news right about the time that people
head to the water for summer vacation. Just
like last summer, they'll be confronted with
slimy algae and closed beaches due to
sewage bacteria. It happened last year, and it
will-happen this year.
Look around: Polluted Lake Okeechobee
water is flowing out of the Caloosahatchee
and St. Lucie Rivers, choking estuaries on
both coasts that were clean and full of fish
15 years ago. The St. John's River, a Florida
treasure, is already getting algae blooms,
which is very early in the year for that to be
happening. These aren't inevitable events
they are the result of lax regulation in Talla-
hassee.
In the case of the St. John's, citizens
watching the slimy algae bloom form are
outraged because an agency of the governor-
the Department of Environmental Protec-
tion-has just announced weaker standards
that will allow a million more pounds of ni-
trogen to go into the river every year. A mil-
lion pounds! Why? The DEP is pushing for
weak standards for ouir wafers all over the
state, and they have until January-when the
new governor comes in-to further weaken
water quality rules.
How can the state be weakening standards
at a time like this? What can we do about it?
Help us find our "clean water" governor-and
then vote for.change.
-Linda Young is the director of the Clean
Water Network of Florida, a non-profit orga-
nization with 155 member groups across the
state dedicated to protecting Florida's wa-
ters and assuring citizens of the right to par-
ticipate in government decision-making that
affects their communities. She can be

Forty-seven years and still going


Submitted by Donna Wade
In 1959, McAlpin Commu-
nity Improvement Club was
organized as part of the Rural
Area Development (RAD)
program which had been en-
acted by Congress. The pur-
pose of the organization was
to help rural people find ways
to utilize their resources to
their best advantage. Suwan-
nee and Jackson counties
were designated as pilot coun-
ties. There were several other
clubs in Suwannee County.
Through this organization,
the RAD Curb Market in Live
Oak was started so local gar-
deners would have a means of
disposing of their surplus
commodities. The members
worked hard to get the
garbage pick up project start-
ed. Clubs kept scrapbooks and
entered booths in the fair.
McAlpin consistently won the


$125 first prize for its booth.
The first meetings were
held at the old McAlpin
School, but just as the
McAlpin Community Club
was getting started, the
School board decided to close
the McAlpin school. The Club
tried to prevent this from hap-
pening, but failed in the at-
tempt. About the time the
school closed, the Communi-
ty Club House, which Pleas-
ant Hill Extension Homemak-
er had been working on for
several years, finally became
a reality. The Club was able to
hold its meetings in the new
building. Soon after the Com-
munity Club began using the
building, the Extension
Homemakers deeded the
property to the Community
Club. In 1976, by-laws were
drawn up, membership de-
fined and the Club became in-

When. the school closed,
furniture and kitchen equip-

were donated to the Commu-
nity Club. These are still in
use today. Club members vol-
unteered their time and effort
to complete the interior of the
building, finishing the kitchen
and bathrooms. The Home-
makers made curti:ins, and the
4-H Club painted the build-
ing, planted shrubbery,
poured a basketball court and
purchased a picnic table for
their community pride pro-
jects. Playground equipment
was made and donated by
members of the Club.
Fund-raisers included flea
markets, political suppers,
and of course, the prize mon-
ey from the fair. The Club
rented the building to help
generate extra income. In the
late 1960s, the Club began to
cater meals, and became quite

Dock Talk

By Damon Wooley
Special to the Suwannee
Democrat

I wouldn't
exactly callF.
them the
dog days of
summer, but
I can hon-
estly say
that during
the last few Damon Wooley
weeks the
weather has been heading in
that direction. Generally
speaking,.as the weather
gets hotter the fishing gets
tougher. During this time of
the year most anglers limit
their outings to either early
morning or late afternoon
hours. The heat isn't quite
as bad, and of course ,most
fish are-usually more active
during low light conditions.
There are a couple of
weekly afternoon tourna-
.ments going on around this
area in case you may want
to wet a line and try to win
a few green backs in the
process. The one I'm most
familiar with is held every
Wednesday evening at Pea-
cock-Lake in Live Oak. The.
entry fee is $20 per boat and
$10 per boat big bass. There
is a five bass limit per boat
and the tournament hours
are from 5:30 p.m. until
dark. This is a winner take
all derby and everyone is
welcome, regardless of boat
make, model or size.

Suwannee varsity Summer
Dog baseball got off to a great
start with two wins. The Dogs
played Taylor County in Taylor
on May 31 to kick off the sea-
son. Suwannee took home the
win 4-2 in a regular seven-in-
ning game.
Ty Smith started on the mound
against Taylor. Smith was re-
lieved by Derrick Warren, D-
Rock, after three. D-Rock gets
the win pitching four innings
and striking out four.
Suwannee hosted East Gads-
den in one nine-inning game.
The game was shortened by the
10-run rule when the score hit


16-6 in the seventh inning.
The Dogs used five pitchers
against East Gadsden. Sean Ryan
started for Suwannee going two
innings. Ryan was relieved by
Warren for two. Michael Staley
pitched one, Ty Smith pitched
one and Austin Brewster closed,
pitching one.
Hot hitter for the evening was
Lee Radford going 3 for 4.
Michael Staley went 3 for 4 as
well. Brewster went 2 for 3 and
Gabe Galloway went 2 for 4.
Smith had the only multiple base
hit, smacking a double for
Suwannee.
Look for more Summer Dog
baseball on Thursday, June 15
when the Dogs host Wakulla.
Game time is 5:30 p.m. Go
Dogs!

Keaton Beach Fishing Report June 9, 2006


r-----

Hey, I just realized to-
day's. date reads "666,"
sixth month, sixth day and
sixth,year supposed to be
the Devil's Day or some
such hooey...well., the fish
didn't know it 'cause I took
Billy Pillow out, and he
caught 10 trout With all but
one over 18 inches 'long,
with one 20.5" long and one
21 incher for the largest. He
fished while I caught bait
for my charter on Wednes-
'day. He caught them all on
live pinfish under Cajun
Thunders fished in 4.5 feet
of water. We fished the
falling tide....from 11 -a.m.
to 2:10 p.m. for the trout.
Last week, 17-year-old
Aaron Temple landed his
first cobia at Keaton Beach,
a,38 pound, six ounce fish


which I weighed
on my X.Tools
scale. The Tem-
ples, on board the
"Crusin' Susan,"
had six trout the
day before and had
a blast catching a
few short cobia the
next day after the
38+ pound ling.
Stony Gaskins
and Tony Suggs,
both of Valdosta,
Ga. won the Satur-
day biggest five
(trout) tourney at
Keaton Beach Marina. This
pair fished live-pinfish un-
der Cajuns to win the tour-
ney with. 12 lbs. 5 oz. total.,
Saturday, I took Ed Talley
with brothers Leon and Paul
Stroud, all of Newnan, Ga.,,
and we had a great box of
trout with 16 trout (four
over 20 inches long) a
Spanish and one. 26.5 inch
red, which -weighed over
seven pounds. We caught
all of our trout on live pin-
fish under Cajun Thunders
in 4 4.5 feet of.water..
But my best story in-
volves my charter Friday
with Rocky and Linda Join-
er with Harrison Ulmer,, all
from North Carolina. The
weather was horrific and
ran us off a great bite (the


fish were hitting every bait
we put in the water) Sud-
denly I looked and Rocky's
line was going up floating
on the positive charge in the
atmosphere and then going
back down to his
Cajun......and that only
means one thing,.....Get out
of there! QUICK! Well, we
had put eight trout to 24
inches, two sand trout and
one nice three pound Span-
ish in the boat in less than
an hour. Rocky had just
baited up and as I was
yelling for everyone to pull
their lines in and sit down! I
grabbed, his rod and
dropped the pinfish, still on
,the hook, complete with 'the
Cajun Thunder, in the
livewell and closed the lid
and took off.....hoping like
heck we didn't get struck by
lightning!
Eventually we made it
back to the dock and the
bait was still in the
livewell, still hooked, while
the rod was lying on the
floor blocking' our exit. So I
snatched up the line and all
and dropped it in the water,
next to my boat at the dock,
in the canal, behind the Ma-
rina...'. where I always dock
my boat.
I proceeded to hang the.
fish up for a picture, then

clean the fish ( as I always
do for all my clients) and
while I am cleaning them a
young lady walks up to me
and declares..."Hey, Pat,
you have a fish on that rod
down there!"
Well, I quickly
replied.."Hey, Thanks,. I
know it's just a pinfish." to
,which she remarked .."no, I
think you've got a fish
down there!"
'I thanked'her and contin'-
ued to clean the fish and
simply ignored her warn-
ing. A few minutes, lat-
er...maybe 15.... I. went
back to my boat and netted
the remainder of baitfish
still in. the livewell up and
placed them in my, holding
pen, as I.had'a trip the next
day. Rocky had, '."One more
questi,'ln" and as I walked
back up towards the boL of f
the boat...it happened!. The,
fish which had most. likely


been hooked (ever since the
girl TOLD me I had one?
DUH?) .on the line under
the Cajun tied to the rod
laying in the boat with
maybe three inches hanging
over the transom.... Sudden-
ly and without further no-
tice left my Parker( boat )
as it was snatched over the
transom and KER-
SPLOOASH!!!! I turned
around and cursed with a
vigor only appreciated by
those who know me.....and
declared the fish with sev-
eral choice phrases, only to
turn around' and realize
there were no less than nine
people watching, listening,
laughing and generally
"not" helping me n ith the
loss of a rod :and reel outfit
worth over $230!
Suddenly, as quickly as it
all disappeared. the Cajun
popped up, and I saw the
fish on ihe :otlier end of the


leader. I quickly tossed a jig
and grub combo at the fish
and Cajun only to hook and
lose the line and watch the
fish take the Cajun under
again, and STAY DOWN!
I figured...surely it was
gone this time ..while then
everyone of my audience of
onlookers screamed, "There
it is Pat, behind you!"
I spun and cast my jig and
got a perfect shot and
hooked the line between the
Cajun and.the fish and then
had to "FIGHT" the fish,
then net a 23-inch long
Speckled Trout which
weighed 3.5 pounds!
Cj ighlt in the canal from
beside my boat on a pinfish
which had been baited up
almost an hour before?
That's my story and I'm
sticking, to it! ....and be-

Gator hunters get longer season

and multiple permits


At its February 2006 meet-
ing, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) approved
changes to the statewide alli-
gator harvest program to offer
a lligator hunters a longer sea-
son and a chance to buy mul-
tiple permits during this.
year's hunts.,
Since 1988, the FWC has
offered these alligator hunts,
which provide a thrilling,
hands-on hunting adventure
unlike any other hunting .ex-
perience imaginable.
Starting this year, the sea-
son will include 41 additional
hunt-days and will run Aug.
15 to Nov. 1.
Hunters also will be able to
purchase additional permits if
available, but they can pur-
chase only one permit per
transaction. MoI\ e than 4.9000
alligator harvest permits will
be available on a first-come,
first-served basis.


Sale of these permits begins
10 a.m. (EDT) June 15. Ap-
plicants have their preference
of applying at any county tax
collector's office,. license
agent (retail outlet that sells
hunting and fishing licenses),
online at MyFWC.com/li-
cense or by calling toll-free 1-
888-HUNT FLORIDA (486-
8356).
STo purchase a permit, appli-
cants must submit payment
for an alligator trapping li-
cense and two alligator-hide
validation tags,, or provide
proof of a valid alligator trap-
ping license (must be valid
through Nov. 1) plus pay the
fee for the two hide.validation
tags. No other hunting licens-
es or permits are required.
The cost for a resident alli-
gator trappiing license 'anid
*hidte Vidation tais is $272,
an nonresidents pay $1,022.
The cost for additional per-
mits is $62 regardless of resi-


dency.
An alligator trapping
"agent" license is also avail-
able for $52. This allows the
license holder to assist a trap-
per in taking alligators but
only when in the presence of
the permitted trapper.
To 'educate participants on
the rules and regulations of"
the hunts, the FWC offers a
no-cost,' three-hour training
and orientation program
throughout the state. Alliga-
tor hunters are not required to

Seven graduate from FWC K-9 School


Scofflaws (persons who
flout the law) in three
states had better watch out
because there are seven
newly-trained natural re-
source canines and han-
dlers ready to hit the dirt.
The officers, who hail
from fish and wildlife and
natural resource agencies
in Florida, Delaware and
Maryland finished more
than 400 hours of training
that began in February and
were awarded their certifi-
cates Friday morning on
the steps of the Old Capitol
Building in Tallahassee.
Four of the handlers and
their partners are from the
Florida, Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC); two are from
Maryland Natural Re-
sources Police and one
hails from Delaware De-
partment of Natural Re-
sources.
Florida's officers in-
clude:
Edward "Eddie" R.
Brown and Grady, who are
assigned to Hendry Coun-
ty;
Bradley W. Clayton and
Cain, assigned to Polk
County;
Samuel D. Dishman
and Bear, Levy County;
and
William E. Giles and
Parker, Columbia County.
Officer 1st Class Curt W.
Dieterle and Blu, and Cpl.
April C. Sharpeta and Bear,
are from Maryland; and
Cpl. Casey L. Zolper and
Warden are from Delaware.
The officers were select-
ed through a process within
their own agency to deter-
mine who would receive a
dog. Training began in
February.
The seven dogs, mostly
black Labradors, were do-
nated, with the majority
coming from animal shel-


ters.
One dog, Grady, was
saved from possible death.
She was beaten with a
shotgun and a shock collar
was used on her, Brown
said. Now, the playful pup
has been through the rigors
of.training. -
"I've been amazed about
how far from Day 1 to now
my dog has come," he said
like a proud, new father
would, when speaking of
his baby. "She got a perfect
score in tracking."
Eventually, Brown wants
to do public presentations,
especially for children.
"I want to show them
what our dogs do," he said.
"I want to show them not
all police dogs are bite
dogs." ,
FWC instructor John
Snow said the canines are
trained to sniff out illegally
taken wildlife, such .as
dove, deer, turkey, lobster,
alligators and ducks. De-
pending on where the dogs
live and work, they were
trained to detect specific
wildlife.
They also can track hu-
mans and find evidence,
such as guns, shell casings,
knives, handcuffs-anything
a human has touched. Re-
cently, one of FWC's ca-
nines located evidence in a
double-homicide.
"Their main function is
to trackhumans," he said.
FWC now has 14 law en-
forcement canines.
"We have the most natur-
al resource dogs in the
world, as far as I know,"
Snow said.
Snow has made his pres-
ence known for natural re-
source canine training. He
has been employed by
FWC since 1980 and had a
bloodhound he used before,
the agency had a K-9 pro-
.grain. He was one of the


first officers to become a
handler for FWC-some-
thing he's done for 18
years-and he's been an in-
structor for 15 years.
When Zolper, who with
Warden is the first team for
Delaware's Department of
Natural Resources, began
searching for an instruction
program, he was told one
name.
John Snow," he said.
"They all said John Snow
and Florida is the place
you want to go.
"With the program he's
put together, pretty much
all your resource dogs have
been trained by Florida or
a state that's been trained
by Florida."
The two officers from
Maryland agreed the train-
ing was rigorous. Their
dogs are the only two
trained in wildlife detec-
tion from their state.
Dieferle said he learned
many things while attend-
ing the training, but one
stood out in his mind.
"Trust your dog," he
said. "The dog knows the
task."
Sharpeta said the train-
ing and dogs are "really
going to change the way
we work in Maryland. It's a
better way to get things
done."
She, along with the other
officers, agreed the work
and training was difficult,
but very rewarding. They
all had to leave their fami-
lies and friends to train for
two weeks with a week off
and then back again.
Snow said the officers
and their partners will now
go back to their respective
states, .taking along a valu-
able tool.
"These dogs are an asset
to protect natural re-
sources," he said. "They
are trained to do just that."

New management plans for four species


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) directed its
scientists Wednesday to pro-
ceed with the final phase of re-
classifying four imperiled
species-manatees, bald eagles,
gopher tortoises and Panama
City crayfish.
The final phase is to draw up
new management plans for
each species, based on the
species' needs. Management
plans typically take a year to
draft, and the process includes
public participation.
For two species, the FWC's
action reflects good news.
Bald eagles no longer are in
danger of extinction in the
foreseeable future. Once Com-
missioners approve a new
management plan to protect


them into the future, the FWC
no longer will include them on
the imperiled species list.
"What we're doing for ea-
gles is working." F\\C Execu-
ti\ e Director Ken Haddad said.
"That's good new s. Our goal is
for all imperiled species to re-
cover to the point where ~we
can remove them fiom rthe
list."
Bald eagles ha\ e established
1,133 kno\\ii nesting temrto-
ties m Florida, and each terri-
tory has one or two adult ea-
gles. Fortd years ago, the
whole country had about 4010.
nesting pairs.
.Manatees, currently listed as
an endangered species, have
recovered to the point they are
no longer in imminent danger
of extinction, although they


still require careful manage-
Ient.
Once their new manage-
ment plan is complete, the
FW\C will reclassif,, them as
threatened.
Haddad said the new classi-
fication will not result in less
protection foyrthe species. He
said protection measures are
specific for each species'
needs, regardless of its classifi-
cation.
Tw-o other species that
haven't fared as -well are go-
pher tortoises and Panama
City crayfish. FWC Commirs-
sioners approved staff recom-
mendations to create new
management plans and contin-
ue the process of reclassifying
both ammals from species of
special concern to threatened.


FWC requests public input on proposed Osceola WMA' changes


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) is proposing
changes to the configuration
of the, still-hunt and deer-dog
hunting areas on the Osceola
Wildlife Management Area
(WMA) and wants public in-
put.
According to John Ault,
regional public hunting areas
biologist, "This proposal was
developed in response to two
distinct issues: a deer-dog
encroachment problem and
the. FWC's endeavor to in-
crease deer-dog hunting op-
portunities on public land.
"During the 2005 hunting
season, deer dogs running on
the eastern side of the Osce-
ola WMA routinely ventured
off the management area and
onto private property. De-
spite efforts by FWC law en-
forcement officers and local
and state dog hunting associ-
ations, the trespass contin-
ued. After much scrutiny,
FWC staff concluded that in


order to eliminate this prob-
lem, the dog hunting area
should be moved away from
the eastern boundary of the
WMA," Ault said.
"The second issue is to in-
crease deer-dog hunting op-
portunities on public lands.
For.a variety of reasons, pub-
lic acreage available for
deer-dog hunting has sub-
stantially decreased in the
past 13 years. During that
same time, acreage for still-
hunting has increased. Be-
cause areas suitable for deer-
dog hunting on wildlife man-
agement areas must meet
certain parameters, including
size and shape, road system
and traditional use, replace-
ment of lost acreage is diffi-
cult."
In response to these two is-
sues, FWC staff developed a
proposal that addresses the
trespass and substantially in-
creases the amount of land
open for deer-dog hunting on
the Osceola WMA.


"We believe the proposed
reconfiguration meets the
parameters for deer-dog
hunting and is worthy of
consideration. In early May,
a working group of diverse
stakeholders met. They dis-
cussed the issues, examined
the proposal and developed
the current proposed config-
uration for the Osceola
WMA. The working group
was composed of one person
from each of the following
organizations: Baker County
Commission, Florida Dog
Hunters and Sportsmen's As-
sociation, FWC, Florida
State Still Hunter's Associa-
tion, Four Rivers Audubon
Societ), Sierra Club, Suwan-
nee River Dog Hunters Asso-
ciation, United Hunters of
Florida, Unified Sportsmen
of Florida and WildLaw,"
Ault said.
At the end of the meeting
there was consensus that the
plan, as modified by the
group, addressed both issues


and was ready for public in-
put.
"We are now asking the
public to look over the pro-
posal and respond to the
changes. The public's posi-
tion and comments on this
proposal are very important
to us. We'd like the public to
write us and let us know if
they support or oppose this
proposal and the reasons for
their position," Ault said.
In order for the FWC to
summarize public comments
in a timely manner, respons-
es are due by June 16.
Comments can be e-mailed
to John.Ault@MyFWC.com

SU.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
Critical Habitat Proposed Rule for Seven Mussels
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) propose to designate critical habitat for the endangered fat
threeridge, shinyrayed pocketbook, Gulf moccasinshell, Ochlockonee moccasinshell, and oval pigtoe, and the
threatened Chipola slabshell and purple bankclimber (collectively referred to as the seven mussels), under the
authority of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended. The proposed designations for the seven mussels
include portions of the Econfina Creek drainage in Florida, the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River drainage in
Alabama, Florida, and Georgia, the Ochlockonee River drainage in Florida and Georgia, and the Suwannee River
drainage in Florida. '
We listed the seven mussels in 1998, and did not designate critical habitat at that time, believing that it would
provide no additional benefit to these species and could have posed additional threat by publishing site-specific
localities. We propose this rule under a settlement agreement with a plaintiff who argued that our 1998 decision
was arbitrary and not in accordance with law. The proposed rule reflects our interpretation of court opinions issued
after 1998 on critical habitat designation and the standards placed on us for prudency determinations.
The Service proposes to designate 11 units encompassing approximately 1,864 km (1,158 mi) of river and stream
channels in portions of the above mentioned Northeast Gulf drainages. Unit 1 includes Econfina and Moccasin
Creeks in Bay and Washington Counties, Florida. Unit 2 includes Chipola River and its tributaries, Dry, Rocky,
Waddells Mill, Baker, Marshall, and Big Creeks in Houston County, Alabama, Calhoun, Gulf and Jackson Counties,
Florida. Unit 3 includes Uchee Creek in Russell County, Alabama. Unit 4 includes Sawhatchee, Sheffield Mill,
and Kirkland Creeks in Early County, Georgia. Unit 5 include the upper Flint River and its tributaries, Swift,
Limestone, Turkey, Pennahatchee, Little Pennahatchee, Hogcrawl, Red Oak, Walnut, Line and Whitewater Creeks
in Coweta, Crawford, Crisp, Dooly, Fayette, Macon, Meriwether, Peach, Pike, Spalding, Sumter, Talbot, Taylor,
Upson, and Worth Counties, Georgia. Unit 6 includes the middle Flint River and its tributaries, Kinchafoonee,
Lanahassee, Muckalee, Little Muckalee, Mill, MercerMill Pond, Abrams, Jones, and Chokee Creeks in Dougherty,
Lee, Marion, Schley, Sumter, Terrell, Webster, and Worth Counties, Georgia. Unit 7 includes the lower Flint River
and its tributaries, Spring, Aycocks, Dry, Ichawaynochaway, Mill, Pachitla, Little Pachitla, Chickasawhatchee, and
Cooleewahee Creeks in Baker, Calhoun, Decatur, Dougherty, Early, Miller, Mitchell, and Terrell Counties,
Georgia. Unit 8 includes the Apalachicola River and its distributaries the Chipola Cutoff and Swift Slough in
Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Jackson, and Liberty Counties, Florida. Unit 9 includes the upper Ochlockonee
River and its tributaries, Bametts and West Barnetts Creeks and the Little Ochlockonee River in Gadsden and Leon
Counties, Florida and Grady and Thomas Counties, Georgia. Unit 10 includes the lower Ochlockonee River in
Leon and Liberty and Wakulla Counties, Florida. Unit 11 includes the Santa Fe River and its tributary, the New
River in Alachua, Bradford, Columbia, and Union Counties, Florida.
As part of designating critical habitat, the Service also takes into account the economic impact, as well as any other
relevant impacts, of specifying any particular area as critical habitat. The Service will publish an announcement in
the Federal Register to notify the public when the draft economic analysis is available for review and comment.
Once the draft economic analysis is available for comment, we intend to hold public hearings for comments on this
proposed action and the draft economic analysis.
A complete description of the proposed critical habitat designation was published in the Federal Register on June 6,
2006. Copies of the proposal and maps are available by contacting Jerry Ziewitz, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,
1601 Balboa Avenue, Panama City, Florida 32405 (telephone 850/769-0552, extension 223; facsimile 850/763-
2177). The proposal and maps can also be found on our websitec at http://www.fws.gov/panamacity/.
The Service will consider comments and information received by August 4, 2006. Written comments on the seven
mussels proposal should be submitted to the Panama City Field Office, addressed to Jerry Ziewitz, at the above
address. Written comments can be delivered to the Panama City Field Office at the above address. Comments may
also be faxed to 850/763-2177, orsent by electronic mail (e-mail) to FW4ESFRPl'anaimaCity@FWS.gov 273013.F

you, there is a larger tour-
nament you can fish held
from safe light until 3 p.m.
coming up soon. The Co-
lumbia County Quarter-
back Club is hosting its
second annual open bass
tournament on Saturday
June 17 out of Clay Land-
ing on-the Suwannee Riv-
er. The entry fee is only
$60 per boat with an op-
tional big bass pot of $10
per boat. Tournament or-
ganizer Donnie Feagle told
me there were already over
20 boats pre-registered as
of last week, and he is ex-
pecting a large turn out.
He also said that there will
be a lot of great door
prizes given away to' the
tournament contestants at
the weigh-in. If you have


any questions, give him a
call at 386-365-1191.
Although the water lev-
els on the Suwannee are
extremely low in many
places, the fishing seems
to be pretty decent. Then
again, it depends on what
angler you talk to about
their outing. For example,
there was a DOC after-
noon derby held in Bran-
ford that was won with
only six pounds, but there
was also a tournament held
a little farther down the
river June 3 and it took
nearly 15 pounds to win it.
Of course, that was an all
day derby, as opposed to
the DOC tournament that
was limited to only a few
hours of angling. Basical-
ly, it boils down to figur-
ing out how to get a bite
when the fishing gets


tough. Scorching heat,
endless amounts of boat
traffic and finicky fish are
just a few parts of the
equation you have to fig-
ure out. I never was too
good at math, and equa-
tions really aren't my
strong suit so I guess I
will just have to pick an-
swer "C" whatever that
might be.
In case you missed the
announcement, the Citgo
Bassmasters Classic site
was recently announced
and it's going to be back
in Alabama at Lay Lake. I
haven't missed one in sev-
en years, and it's a lot of
fun. There are lots of great
activities for children of
all ages and admission is
free. Check out bassmas-
ter.com for more informa-
tion.

"My background was the
short tracks around the
country anyway," Allison
said. "I did a lot of the Fri-
day night and Saturday
night races and I would've
loved to run Daytona under
the lights.
"The 400 in the summer-
time at Daytona was really,
really tough."
Allison, a native of
Hueytown, Ala., and a
three-time Daytona 500
winner, recalls how diffi-
cult it was to compete in
the summer in the Florida '
sunshine.
The real opponent during
the Pepsi 400 wasn't his
fellow drivers, but the
heating coming through the
floorboard.


"The heat was the prima-,
ry deal," Allison said. "The
crew really had to work
hard on insulating the floor
of the car because here you
are on the steering wheel
but your feet might be
burning because your feet
are touching the floor-:
board.
"I did burn my feet pret-
ty bad a couple of times.
Daytona you hold the throt-
tle wide open most of the
time lap after lap. With that
pressure on the floorboard,
that's where the heat is and
if the crew didn't do that
excellent job that they nor-
mally do ... if somebody
slipped up a little bit, that
heat got through and your
feet would sure suffer from
it."

treated the Pepsi 400 with
the same focus and passion
as the Daytona 500.
In his book, a win at
Daytona was a win at the
most prestigious track on
the schedule.
"I never took the attitude
that the big one was the
last time we were here and
this is not as big of a deal,"
Allison said. "I never
thought that way about any

PASS work was instrumen-
tal in raising and sustain-
ing the school's grade from
a D to an A. Elliott Stern,
company senior vice presi-
dent, worked with the
school's former principal,
Valerie White, to bring
about this dramatic im-
provement.
"PASS made all the dif-
ference," says Valerie


White. "We threw out all
the same-old, same-old,
and came up with new
ways to help students
achieve. The use of perfor-
mance data-a business con-
cept that every school
should adopt-was trans-
forming."
Based on their experi-
ence, other PASS success-
es, and strong program
evaluation results, Ray-


mond James committed an-
other $100,000 to PASS.
The funds will help the
Council for -Educational
Change administer and
scale-up the program, ex-
tending the benefit to even
more schools and students.

Matt Kenseth races and meets fans at Wild Adventures


'- "CAR star makes
pit stop to meet fans -
Talledega didn't
have anything on Ad-
venture Quest Race-
way Monday, May 29
at Wild Adventures
Theme Park, as
NASCAR's Matt
Kenseth stopped in
for a race on the go-
kart track and to meet
his fans.
Thousands lined up
to watch Kenseth take
on the 14 people who
were lucky enough to'
win the chance to race
the champ. And al-
though he started at
the back of the pack in
both heats, enough
bumping and banging
went. on to get him to


the front and give him
two more top three
finishes to brag about
in his career.
"Wow, I never
thought I'd be lucky
enough to race him,"
said Janet Weber, a
sixth grade teacher
and winner of the
Web site qualifying
contest. "My students
thought it would be,
really funny if I en-
tered, and I'm just so
tickled to be here. I
can't' wait to tell them
how nice he is and
how much fun I had!"
After the race,
Kenseth signed auto-
graphs for the fans,
some of. whom had
driven from South


Carolina and waited
in line more than
three hours to meet
their favorite driver.
Calls of ."Great race
last night!" and "An-
other one like 2003!"
were a common theme
of the appearance, ref-
erences to his fifth
place finish last night
and the championship
title he won in 2003.
Specially printed pho-
tographs for signing
were provided to fans
and many brought
their own, memorabil-
ia to be signed, such
as a life-size card-
board cutout of the
driver.
Kenseth also spoke
briefly about last

The finish Sunday
night, May. 28, at
Lowe's Motor Speed-
way was much more
satisfying than the
previous week's
wreck with Tony
Stewart on the same
track during the All-
Star Challenge. A
mention of the' so-
called feud between
the two drivers
brought a grin to his
face, as well as a quick
"That's racin'.
When asked how the
new points system
compares to the "pre-
chase" system, he re-
sponded quite posi-
tively. "With the new
system, it gives more
guys a chance for a
run, at the champi-
onshiF -'at the end of
the season," Kenseth
/said. "Under the old
way, maybe three or
four guys really had
the points to finish on
top by the time it got
,to those last 10 races.
This way, there are
more drivers compet-
ing at the end of the
season and that's
more exciting for the
fans."
Kenseth ended the
day with some family
time, riding rides and
enjoying Splash Island
Water Park before
heading back to North
Carolina. The appear-
ance was part of the
park's 10th Anniver-
sary Celebration.

New hope for sufferers of alcoholism and addiction
Alcohol and drug addiction plagues thousands of people because
it knows no boundaries of social or economic class. Today,
substance abuse is on the rise across the country. According to the
Department of Health and Human Services, almost one in 10 .,
Americans is addicted to alcohol, cocaine or methamphetamines. --
Since addiction is a widespread concern, there are few families who
haven't been touched by stories of drug and alcohol abuse.
Sabrina (last name withheld) is just one of many addiction stories.
When a violent tornado leveled her home, Sabrina was severely
injured and suffered permanent nerve damage. In an effort to self-
medicate, Sabrina turned to alcohol and marijuana to ease her
suffering. She eventually moved on to "harder" drugs like ..

Emergency physicians urge men to think healthy


While government statistics
may not be your idea of a great
Father's Day gift, the American
College of Emergency
Physicians (ACEP) is urging
men to think about their health
on the day dedicated to dad, and
consider making healthy
changes to their daily routines.
One of the very best things a
father can do for his family is to
take good care of himself.
According to the latest statistics
from the Centers for Disease.
Control and Prevention (CDC),
dad could be doing a little better
job of that. According to the
CDC, a whopping 69 percent of
men over the age of 20 are
overweight. In the 35-54 age
brackets, 73 percent of men are
overweight. More than 40
years ago, government statistics
showed only 54 percent of men
ages 35-54 were overweight. In
other words, those ties we've
been buying for dads all these
years have been getting a bit
longer as the decades go by.
One encouraging health trend
is the reduction in numbers of
men who smoke. In 1965, 51
percent of men smoked, while
in 2003 ihat nwunber had
dropped to 24 percent. The
number is even lower for
women with only 20 percent
of women regularly smoking,
according to the latest
government statistics.
"Father's Day is a great time


for men to think about their
health," said Dr. Rick Blum,
president ofACEP. "We see
many people in hospital
emergency rooms due to the
long-term effects of unhealthy
habits. If smokers would quit
smoking and everyone watched
their alcohol consumption, we
would notice a drop in
emergency room visits, and
more importantly, people would
feel better."
For the entire population, the
top three reasons for going to
the emergency room according
to the latest CDC figures are:
stomach pain, chest pain, and
fever. There were
approximately 40 million visits
to U.S. emergency rooms
because of injuries, with the
number one cause of those
injuries being falls.
Conservative estimates suggest
more than 2.5 million
emergency room visits each
year are directly related to
alcohol consumption.
"ACEP recently participated
in a 'risky drinking' campaign,
sponsored by the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration. which asked
the public to think twice before
consuming alcohol," said Dr.
Blum. "'Drinking alcohol, even
in moderate amounts that some
people might think would be
safe, can increase your chances
of visiting an emergency room


Tips to get your vehicle ready

for safe summer travel


- it's that simple."
Overall, there were 113.9
million visits made to U.S.
emergency rooms in 2003.
Women made more visits than
men in every age category with
one exception: children.
Among children under 15 years


old, boys outnumbered girls in
emergency rooms 13.5 million
to 11.2 million. So dads, as you
gather with family and friends
on your special day keep a
special eye on the children -
especially the boys.

Summer is here and that
means many people will soon
jump in their cars and head out
for vacation. The combination of
summer heat and long road trips
means vehicle owners need to
take preventative measures to
make sure their vehicles are
ready for the trip ahead. Getting
stuck in a parking lot or alongside
a busy highway can be extremely
dangerous and costly.

Fishing .
(ARA) Dads tend
to be low-maintenance
when it comes to
Father's Day gifts,
according to recent
findings by the
National Retail
Federation. Where .
Moms are likely to
appreciate luxury
items like jewelry or a
trip to the spa, men
like leisurely goods
for barbecuing,
boating, fishing or
watching a ballgame.
If you want to get
Dad a gift for his
favorite outdoor
activity, here are some
Father's Day
suggestions for Dads
of any age.
Fishing gear that
floats is ideal for
anglers. XTools sells
a value pack with 6
1/2-inch floating
bent-nose pliers, a 10-
inch mini E-Z release
de-hooker and a
convenient holder that
clips on Dad's belt.
You can find these
gadgets at many
national boating and
fishing retailers for
less than $30.
The Tube 'N Go
Package is the perfect
water sports package
for an active Dad.
West Marine has a
special during the
month of June and for
under $80 you get a
high performance
tube, foot pump, tolw-
i ope,-liffe-taxcket aad. '
Aquazooka, a water
bazooka that shoots
up to 60 feet. Buy
Dad the gift and the
entire family can
enjoy a weekend of
fun.
To help Dad plot the
ultimate fishing trip,
Garmin's new
GPSMAP 498
combination fish
finder and chart
plotter is ready to
launch, right out of
the box. Preloaded
with cartography for
the U.S. coastal areas
and Hawaii, the unit's
split-screen viewing
of map and sounder
data lets you track
your trip while
searching for schools
of Dad's favorite fish.
If you want to make
Dad the envy of all his
friends, get him an
Igloo Audio Cooler.
Featuring the official
logo of different
NCAA universities,
audio coolers play the
school's fight song
whenever the lid is
opened. It's ideal for
the home, patio, beach
and, of course,
tailgating.
Or you could grab a


paddle and skedaddle
with Dad for the
weekend in a kayak or
canoe. New West
Marine inflatable
kayaks have unique
fixed rigid forms in
the bow and stern to
cut through the water
for performance
similar to a hard shell
kayak. Light weight
inflatable kayaks stow


for gifts for dad?


compactly in the
trunk of your car for
easy transport to your
favorite lake or
stream.
Nearly two-thirds of
consumers plan on
purchasing at least
one gift card this
Father's Day, so if
you're fresh out of
ideas, let him pick out
something he really


wants with a gift card.
Plus, gift cards are
available in various
amounts and are ideal
for any budget.
For more details on
these Father's Day
gifts call (800)
BOATING (262-8464),
or log on to
westmarine.com.
