who worked to get the
bill passed.
The bill was written
by a coalition of House
and Senate Legislators,
according to Hatch. The
law is in response to an
issue brought up by
Wooley and Hatch sev-
eral years ago called Johnny Wooley
Counties in Crisis. "The power point presenta-
tion by Johnny was pretty brilliant," Hatch said.
Wooley put together a Power Point presentation
for those concerned that showed small counties
were at risk because many were at a 10-mill cap,
had a low tax base and distribution of state mon-
ey to these counties was inadequate. At the time,
10 counties were at a 10-mill cap, including
Suwannee, Bradford, Calhoun, Dixie, Gadsden,
Gilchrist, Glades, Hamilton, Holmes, Jefferson,
Lafayette, Liberty, Madison, Union Wakulla and
Washington counties. While small counties
would generate $509,520 from each mill of ad
valorem tax, larger counties would generate

Three Suwannee County people had the satis-
faction last week of attending the signing of a
new law by Gov. Jeb Bush. The three, State Rep.
Dwight Stansel, Suwannee County Commission
Vice-Chairman Randy Hatch and Suwannee
County Coordinator Johnny Wooley, were in-
strumental in helping to get the fiscally con-
strained counties bill passed and signed into law
to help counties like Suwannee County get a
bigger share of the tax money.
As a result of the bill, Suwannee County will
get $591,264 in new revenue, Wooley said.
Lafayette County will get about $704,000, Madi-
son about $704,000 and Taylor about $325,000.
The signing of the bill into law took place in
Palatka Jhme 16 and all three were on hand to
watch with pride as the event unfolded. Included
in this group were Rep. Joe Pickens R- Palatka

Does your writing lack luster? Do
you have trouble getting started on
writing projects? If so, North Florida
.Community College (NFCC) invites
you to participate in its upcoming free
writer's workshop "Literati Karate:
Packing a Punch with Words," featur-
ing popular writer and poet Jayne
Jaudon Ferrer Thursday, June 22 from
9-11 a.m. at NFCC's Fine Arts Audito-
rium on the Madison campus.
Born and raised in the rural commu-
nity of Wauchula, Ferrer seemed des-
tined for a life of writing at an early
age. She published her first story, about
horses, while only in the fourth grade.
A few years later in middle school Fer-
rer was writing a weekly column for
the local newspaper. By high school


she had sold a series of country n
articles to the Tampa Tribune,

country music legends Kenny

Q: I use a mouth rinse frequently. Do I still need to
brush and floss carefully.
A. The short answer is yes. Over-the-counter mouth
rinses may leave your mouth feeling temporarily
fresh and sweet, but they have limited effectiveness
in killing the bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum
disease. In fact, if you're using a mouth rinse
constantly, the danger is it may mask any unpleasant
taste or bad breath that could be the first symptoms
of periodontal, or gum, disease.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has
classified mouth rinses as either cosmetic or
therapeutic or a combination of the two. There are
mouth rinses on the market, however, that do bear
the American Dental Association 'seal of approval.
These are recognized as being helpful in preventing
and reducing gingivitis and plaque above the gum
line when used as directed.
The fact remains that mouth rinses will be most
effective on teeth that are as clean as possible. In
other words the best time to use a mouth rinse is
after you've brushed and flossed thoroughly. Talk to
you dentist about the brands of mouth rinse he
recommends and the proper way to use them.

Recently named as a "MomExpert"
for ClubMom.com, Ferrer draws inspi-
ration for her literary works through
her experiences as a woman and a
mother. Her first book, a collection of
poetry about motherhood entitled "A
New Mother's Prayers," was published
by Pocket Books in 1989 and success-
fully sold 50,000 copies. In 1996 Fer-
rer published "I am the Mother of
Sons," a collection of poetry inspired
by her own adventures as a mother of
three sons. Other works include
"Dancing with my Daughter" and her
latest book "She of the Rib: Women
Unwrapped." Ferrer, once a resident of
Madison, currently resides in South
Carolina with her family.
The public is encouraged to attend
NFCC's free writer's workshop. For

In August 2006, re-
searchers from the Univer-
sity of Florida (UF), in con-'
.junction with the UF Coop-
erative Extension office in
Suwannee County, will con-
duct a no-cost weight man-
agement program targeting
children and families.
Led by David Janicke,
Ph.D., an assistant profes-
sor in the department, of
clinical and health psychol-
ogy in the UF College of
Public Health and Health
Professions, the UF Healthy
Lifestyles Program for
Families team will work
with children and their par-,
ents in Suwannee ,and Co-
lumbia counties. The work
is supported by a $435,000
grant awarded to Janicke
from the National Institute
for Diabetes and Digestive
and Kidney Disorders, with
supplemental funding from,
the Institute for Child and
Adolescent Research and
Evaluation.
More than 30 percent of
American children and ado-
lescents meet the criteria for
obesity or are considered at
risk for obesity. Overweight:
children and adults are at
increased risk for diabetes,
high blood pressure and car-
diovascular problems.
Moreover, children' who
struggle with weight issues
are often the victims of
teasing from peers.
"Given the scope and se-
riousness of obesity in
America and.the limited ac-
cess to services for children
in rural settings, there is. a,,
pressing need for the devel-
opment and assessment of
intervention programs that
target children at greatest
risk for the long-term nega-
tive health consequences of.
obesity," Janicke said.
"Many families want to de-
velop healthier patterns of
eating and exercise that may.
positively impact weight
and health, but making
these types of changes is of-
ten hard."
The UF Healthy
Lifestyles Program is de-


signed to help children and
parents modify their dietary
and physical activity in or-
der to promote a healthy
lifestyle,, positive self-im-
age and effecti,.e weight
management. The program
helps families work togeth-
er to learn how to manage
reallife situations and
make gradual, modest
changes in their lifestyle.
Janicke noted that providing
support for families is a cru-
cial component of the pro-
gram.
"An important emphasis
in our program is helping
parents and children to sup-
port each other to make pos-
itive, changes," he said.
"The group format is also a
very positive way to build a
strong support network."
The four-month, group-
based program includes
weekly sessions at the Co-
operative Extension office,
1302 Eleventh Street, SW,
Live Oak, with groups com-
prising about six to 10 fam-
ilies. Some groups will
work only with parents to
help them encourage their
children to adopt healthier
lifestyle habits, while other
groups will work with both
children and parents. Fami-
lies will receive step coun-
ters to track daily physical
activity and $5 for each
weekly session they attend
to compensate for travel ex-
penses.
Children who are eligible
for the no-cost weight man-
agement study should be
, between the ages of 8 and
13 years and be considered
_overweight;- parents can-call
program staff who will help
them determine if their fam-
ily is eligible. The child and
participating parent must
both be willing to attend
weekly group meetings be-
ginning in August. Initial.
screening appointments for
the program will take place
in May and June of this
year. Families interested in
participating in the program
or who have questions
should call the program's
toll-free phone number,
866-673-9623.

OPINION

Congress has a duty to

pass the flag amendment
By Stephen B. Presser, Raoul Berger Professor of Le-
gal History, Northwestern University School of Law
This summer, Congress will have one more op-
portunity to further popular sovereignty by pass-
ing, in both chambers for the first time, the flag
amendment. The flag amendment is a simple and
elegant addition to the Constitution, providing,,in
pertinent part, that "The Congress shall have pow-
er to prohibit the physical desecration of the Flag
of the United States." The need for the amendment
flows from the Supreme Court's misconstruction
,of the Constitution in the 1989 case of Texas v.
Johnson. In that case, overturning more than a
century of American tradition, a five-person ma-
jority of the Court declared that desecration of the
flag-the act of maliciously destroying the flag by
such acts as tearing, burning, defecation or urina-
tion, in a manner calculated to cause outrage
among any person observing the act-is speech pro-
tected by the First Amendment.
Until 1989, even the greatest champions of the
First Amendment-men such as justices Earl War-
ren and Hugo Black-understood that desecrating
the flag was a noxious act, and not a form of
speech. Indeed, in his powerful dissent to Texas v.
Johnson, then-Chief Justice Rehnquist observed
that flag desecration is more like an "inarticulate
grunt" than any form of coherent speech. Some
acts-wearing a black armband, for example-may
well qualify as protected speech, but other acts,

graffiti-n'Vfdedra bbti di gs! Might ieIll-aVe' sonme-'
expressive content but would still not be 'recog-
nized as speech protected by the First Amend-
ment.
It is curious that, a majority of the Supreme
Court finds it difficult to understand these truths,
which are obvious to most Americans. Subsequent
to Texas v. Johnson, in 2003's Virginia v. Black, the
Supreme Court ruled that cross burning, another
expressive act, is not necessarily protected speech
but rather can be criminally punished when it is
intended to intimidate and create fear of physical
harm among a group of citizens. Flag desecration,
bf course, is a similar act of defiance and intimida-
tion, but perhaps the Court, in its marble palace on
Capitol Hill-along with many academics in their
ivory'towers-has lost the sense of the effect of flag
desecration on ordinary Americans. Opinion polls
glo show that up to 80 percent of Americans be-
lieve it is appropriate to punish those who dese-
crate the flag and that a constitutional amendment
that accomplishes this is a worthy undertaking. In-
deed, with a unanimity unprecedented in US his-
fory, 50 state legislatures have indicated their sup-
port for such an amendment.
The real issue with the flag amendment is what
utir guiding national philosophy should be:
whetherr there are some things that ought to be sa-
cred and revered, and whether the American peo-
ple and their representatives have the power and
the duty to declare what those things are. The real
issue, in other words, is nothing less than popular
sovereignty itself. To some Americans, committed
probably in good faith to a society in which the
-naximization of individual will and expression is .
the only good, the flag amendment might seem an
unwise burden imposed on free expression. To
most Americans, however, who understand, as
did our framers, that some things are more impor-
tant and enduring than individual self-actualiza-
tion, who understand that duty, respect, self-sacri-
fice and service to the community ought to take
precedence, the passage of the 28th Amendment,
,he flag amendment, will be celebrated as a wise
return to our traditions and to the original under-
standing of the Constitution.

GUEST EDITORIAL


Homeownership at the foundation of strong communities


By Chuck Clemons, USDA Rural Development,
Florida State Director
Ensuring that all people, including families, elderly
and disabled residents, living in rural communities have
affordable and safe housing has been a top priority of
USDA Rural Development for more than 70 years. June
is National Homeownership Month-a time to reflect on
the important role homeownership plays in -American
society, especially in rural America. For many of us, be-
ing able to go to sleep each night in a safe and comfort-
able home is something we take for granted. However,
this is not the case for many rural Americans.
. Homeownership is a bedrock of the American econo-
my, helping to increase jobs, boost demand for goods
and services and build prosperity. How many times
have you considered homeownership a part of rural eco-
nomic development? The truth is, without affordable,
safe and adequate housing for rural residents, economic
development will struggle to succeed. While this devel-
oprnent can mean so many things, at its foundation is a
community's ability to provide its residents with decent,
safe and affordable housing. -
So far this year, Rural Development has invested $1.7
billion nationwide to help more than 21,000 families buy
a home. This investment is part of the reason the home-
ownership rate for non-metropolitan areas is 76.1-per-
cent compared to 68.8-percent nationwide. Rural Devel-
opment's housing programs finance new or improved
housing with no down payment and at favorable rates
and terms for low- to moderate-income families and in-
dividuals who wish to live in rural areas or communi-
ties. Both guaranteed and direct homeownership loans
are offered. Under the direct loan program, individuals
or families receive a loan directly from Rural Develop-


Superintendent
of Schools

ment. Guaranteed loans are
made by other lenders, such as
banks or credit unions, and are
Guaranteed by our agency.
One of the most exciting
housing programs offered by
Rural Development is Self-Help
housing. Participants, orga-
nized in groups of six to 10 fam-
ilies, utilize their own labor to
reduce the total construction
costs of their homes. These faom-
ilies not only build their own
homes, but create tight-knit
communities as,they complete their homes together. We
fund nonprofit groups who carry out local Self-Help
housing programs, pay salaries, administrative expens-
es, and even costs of purchasing of essential equipment
such as power tools for the families to use.
In addition to helping with homeownership, we also
have loans and grants available to help low-income fam-
ilies and the elderly make needed house repairs so that
they can remain in their own home. Rural Development
is committed to the future of rural communities and to
helping as many people as possible achieve the Ameri-
can Dream. This month we are proud to celebrate home-
ownership and the role it plays providing security for
children, stabilizing neighborhoods and helping to cre-
ate stronger communities.

The way kids eat and the way kids
play has changed and has put then at
risk for becoming overweight.
Technology and inactivity
Modern technology has made our
lives easier. Inventions like remote
controls. video games, riding lawn
mow ers,. and dishwashers save us time
and energy. These conveniences mean
less phN sical acti\ ity.
Childhood obesity and an inactive
lifestyle go hand in hand. Generally.
kids who are physically inactive at
home are not active elsewhere. Nlany
times, overweight children %want to get
involved but feel embarrassed and
awkward.
Consequences of
childhood obesity
Obesity causes serious risks for chil-
dren's physical and emotional well-be-
ing. Oerwneight kids face health issues
like Type II1 Diabetes, high blood pres-
sure, high blood cholesterol, and sleep
apnea. Emotionally, overweight chil-
dren suffer isolation and lower self-es-
teem. They are at greater risk for sui-
cide. Think about how kids feel who
are bullied or teased simply because
they are overweight.
Obesity often tracks into adulthood.
That makes prevention and treatment
essential for stopping the problem
from escalating further.
Walking is worthwhile
The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention recommends 30 minutes of
physical activity per day for adults and
30 to 60 minutes daily for kids. Walk
for 30 minutes or break it up .into
smaller time segments, for example: 3
walks for 10 minutes per walk.
Walking is fun and life-long activity-
that just about e\eryone'can do. It's
simple, free. has no membership fees,
or dues, and requires no lessons. -By
walking regularly, adults set a good
example. They also teach children that
walking is an easy w'a) to achieve a
healthy life.
Walking offers a variety of
health benefits.

Simple Ways to Increase
Your Steps
Start slowly and increase your step$
a little at a time. Look for ways tlia4
you can "step it up a notch." Here ar4
some ideas.
Park further away from the door.
Walk or march in place while talk.
ing on the phone.
Schedule short walking breaks
each hour and walk around your home
or office for a few minutes.
Schedule a weekly family walk.
Make a game out of it. Give fami-
ly members pedometers and see if they
can top the number of steps from one
da) or week to the next. Remember,*
2000 steps equals about one mile.
Walk the dog.
Play some music and dance. Chil-
dren love this!
When shopping, take a brisk walk
around the mall or store first..
Put away the remote control and
get up to change TV stations.
Rather than simply going for a
%walk with children, make it an adven-
ture.
Remember to always put safety
first. Walk in areas that are well lit and
where there is little or no traffic. Walk
with a buddy or a group. Wear appro-
priate clothing and carry identifica-
tion.
Children are great imitators. When
they see their parents and other adults
walking, they accept it as part of the
normal routine. Do it for yourself and
the children in your. life. Even small
steps will help in the fight against
childhood obesity. Take a step forward
.and start on your way to a healthier
lifestyle!

Director of Assessment and
Secondary Education Carol
Risk said though SHS made a
gain in points, they failed to
show an adequate percentile
of students in the lowest 25
percent making gains in read-
ing for two years in a row.
This caused a drop in their
school grade.
Branford Elementary
School achieved an A this
year, compared with a B last
year. BES scored 457 points,
an increase of 61 points from
last year.
Branford High School
scored a B, compared with a
C last year. BHS scored 409
points, an increase of 65
points.
Suwannee Middle School
scored a B, compared with a
C from last year. SMS scored
396 points, an increase of 31
points. /
Suwannee Elementary
School again scored a C,
which they also achieved, last
year. SES scored 359 points, a
decrease of 6 points.
The DOE reported that 53
percent of Florida's graded
public schools earned an A on
the FCAT; 22 percent earned a
B; 20 percent earned a C; 5


percent earned a D and 1 per-
cent earned an F.
School grades are calculat-
ed by points. Schools obtain
one point for each percent of
students who score at least a
level 3 in reading; one point
for each percent of students
who score at least a level 3 in
math; one point for each per-
cent of students who score at
least a 3.5 on the writing as-
sessment; one point for each
percent of students making
learning gains'in reading; one
point for each percent of stu-
dents making learning gains in
mathematics and one point for
each percent of the lowest,
performing students making
learning gains in reading.
Two schools in Suwannee
County achieved AYP BES
and BHS. SMS reached provi-
sional AYP.
Risk said provisional AYP
is given to schools receiving
an A or B grade,.but not meet-
ing 100 percent of the criteria
for AYP.
SMS met 92 percent of the
criteria.
Risk said these schools
reaching AYP and provisional,
AYP is an improvement for
Suwannee County. Last year
no schools in the county met
AYP and only BES met provi-


sional AYP.
DOE reported that out of
the 2,789 graded public
schools in Florida 906 schools
made AYP and 1,024 have
made provisional AYP.
AYP is calculated by a dif-
ferent scale using 39 individ-
ual criteria and by looking at
the data in a way where each
group of students receive a
grade. Information is broken
down to include all major
racial groups, economically
disadvantaged, limited Eng-
lish proficiency and students
with disabilities.
Risk said basically, AYP
calculations are made by con-
sidering the following:
Whether 95 percent of all stu-
dents took the FCAT; whether
44 percent of the students
scored at or above grade level
in reading; whether 50 percent
of the students scored at or
above grade level in mathe-
matics; whether there was 1
percent improvement in writ-
ing performance and whether
an increase of 1 percent oc-
curred in the graduation rate.
The percentages used as
standards for the reading and
mathematics increase yearly.
Parents of SES and SHS
students who ha e not already
picked up FCAT grades mray


do so at the school through
June 30. SMS students already
received FCAT grades through

$42,410,833, the Power Point
presentation showed. On a 3-2
vote last year, Suwannee
County voted to lower the
millage from 10 mills to 9.7.
mills. Hatch and Commission-
er Doug. Udell voted against
the motion, saying it would
cost the county more than it
could save tax payers.
While small counties were
getting 4 percent of the half-
cent sales tax distribution or
about $41,861,013, large coun-
ties got 66 percent or
s641.256.615, \Wooley said.
Those dollar figures tforsmall
coufnies il 'now increase
with a more evenly divided
percentage.
"There's a realization finally
in the Legislature that some of
these small counties are getting
left out because we don't have
the revenues to create the.in- ,
infrastructure nor do we have the
ability to have the work force,"
Stansel said. "We tried to mess
with the half cent sales tax for
a few years, (but) we had to
take money from the big coun-
ties to get money to the little
counties," he added. "We took
30 percent of the telecommuni-
cations tax that comes directly
from the satellites at your
home every year and put into a
trust fund, and it will recur
every year and doesn't have to
come back to the Legislature,"
Stansel stated. "That's a gift
horse and the county needs to
put it into a fund and spend it
on'non-recurring items,"
Stansel suggested. "It's a great
program for the rural counties.
It also said small counties
won't have to pay juvenile pre-
trial detention costs either,
where the large counties do."
Once Gov. Bush designated
28 rural counties, including
Suwannee, as rural areas of
critical economic concern,
things began to change and the
bill eventually was passed, en-
hancing the distribution of the
one half cent sales tax dollars
and the county revenue sharing
dollars.
"The new law will provide
additional revenue for those
counties that do not have an
adequate tax base to fund criti-
cal services. The state said if
you make maximum effort to
help yourself, we will make'
maximum effort to help you,"
Hatch said. "At the time
Suwannee county was at the
maximum of 10 mills, but then
we reduced the millage rate by
3/10th of a mill on a narrow ,
vote of the board, saving each
household in the county ap-
proximately $5," Hatch said.
"However, that "huge" sav-
ings per household is offset by
a 25 percent reduction in rev-
enue sharing from the state on
some programs, meaning that


it could cost each household
about $50 in services."
"At last, we in Suwannee
County will now be able to get
a better share of state revenue
sharing, although we are being
penalized for not making the
maximum effort," he said.
"However," Hatch stated, "our
neighboring small counties


District 5 County Commisioner
Randy Hatch
will receive the full measure of
revenue sharing."
Hatch thanked Gov. Jeb
-Bush, Sen. Rod Smith, Rep.
Dwight Stansel and Sen. Ed
Jennings who all played a ma-
jor role in getting the measure
passed. "Rep. Don Brown was
a lightening rod for us on this
in the House," Hatch said.
Hatch played a major role at
the county and state level get-
ting the bill passed.
Hatch thanked Small County
Coalition Executive Director.
Chris Doolin, who he said
played a major role, Joe Spratt
and many, many others who
rose to the occasion. "The
House sponsor was Joe Pick-
ens who went way beyond the
call of duty, Speaker of the


House Allen Bense got behind
this and told the House to do
their very best to see this thing
through," Hatch stated.
But, the work done by Woo-
ley in the beginning and during
the process was invaluable,. "
Hatch said. "Counties in Crisis
(the first Power Point presenta-
tion Wooley put together) did
two things, it defined physical-
ly constrained counties, and the
consequences of not dealing
with the problem," Hatch said.
"It became a very sound policy
at the state level because what
the state didn't want to do is
come in and run these small
counties," he added. "For
$18.7 million to fund the phys-
ically constrained counties bill,
the state was able to postpone,
eliminate or otherwise delay
having to face a $1.5 billion li-
ability if they had had to take
over the daily operations of
some of these small counties,"
Hatch said.
The county is yet to decide
how the new money will be
budgeted, but Wooley said the.
county needs another ambu-
lance unit either in the Well-
Sbomrn area or Dowling Park.
"Suwannee County took this
issue to the state, Florida Asso-
ciation of Counties and the
Small County Coalition three
years ago," Wooley said. "The
Governor, Senate President
and House Speaker are to be
commended for their leader-
ship. Their leadership was
crucial in getting the legisla-
tion through the legislative
process."

Treatment for Iron Deficiency Anemia
Anemias are a group of disorders that are characterized by a reduction in
the blood's ability to carry oxygen. Iron deficiency anemia is just one
type. It can be caused by malnutrition, hookworms, and diets with limited
meat, fresh fruit, or fresh vegetables. This type of anemia often has no
symptoms and is best diagnosed by a blood test done at a physician's
office.
The treatment for iron deficiency anemia includes iron supplementation
with diet and iron preparations. There are multiple iron supplement
products available with and without a prescription. Iron supplements
come in several forms that include: ferrous sulfate, ferrous gluconate,
ferrous fumarate, and polysacaride iron complex. The differences in these
formulations rest in how much iron can be absorbed from the product.
To get the most iron from any iron supplement, use a non-sustained
release product, take the supplement about and hour before meals, and do
not use a combination product such as antacids. Iron products are
sometimes difficult to tolerate and can cause stomach upset. To increase
tolerability, take the supplement in 2-3 divided doses daily and take with
food if given approval by a physician. Report any difficulties in
tolerability or for questions about your iron supplement, consult your
pharmacist. 270063-F

Re-opening of

Hickory Mound

Impoundment

,on Big Bend
Once again the public will
have access to the impoundment
on the Hickory Mound Unit of
the Big Bend Wildlife Manage-
ment Area (WMA) in Taylor
County.
Contractors are putting finish-
ing touches on the extensive re-
pairs and improvements to the
dike structure that made the im-
poundment susceptible to storm
damage in the past, Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) officials
said.
The public began using the
impoundment June 15.
Hickory Mound Impound-
ment is a popular area for crab-
bers, fishermen, hunters, birders
and other outdoor enthusiasts.
FWC officials said they thank
the users of the area for their
patience during the extended
closure.
"We also want to dispel ru-
mors about user fees for this
area," said David Nicholson,

Boots Scholarship

Janet Schrader


Democrat Reporter
Justin Johnson is going to be a junior
at Suwannee High next year and already
he is stacking up scholarship money.
Johnson recently won the Ariat Boots
Scholarship for a local high school
rodeo athlete.
Johnson received the award at the
Florida High School Rodeo Finals held
in Kissimmee at the Silver Spurs Rodeo
Arena June 8-10. Johnson was honored
with the scholarship for his work as the
2006-2007 Florida/High School Rodeo

"I thought that if I ran for president I
could make a difference in the associa-
tion instead of complaining about
things," Johnson said.
"He had several adults and kids re-
quest that Justin run for President after
serving as vice president last year,"
mom Rhonda Johnson said. "They felt
like he would be a great

learned through his mem-
bership in the FFA).
Justin believes that the
FHSRA is one of the
greatest youth athletic or-
ganizations around and
that the great American
cowboy is one of the last
true heroes of our time.
As president of the FH-
SRA, Justin wants to pro-
mote the history, heritage
and traditions of the Great
American cowboy and


rodeo."
Mom Rhonda and father
Jay Johnson also got in-
volved in the FHSRA. Jay
was elected FHSRA Vice
President and Rhonda is
the FHSRA Rodeo Secre-
tary. "We hope to get more
rodeos this way, the clos-
est one has been in
Ocala -we would like to
have a FHSRA in Live
Oak, and we would like to
have two day rodeos so the
kids can get to know each
other better and it would
save on the driving fuel


cost," Johnson said. "How
it is now, we drive all the
way to Davie, Brighton,
Big Cypress etc.. for a one,
day rodeo. We have to
spend the night anyway so
we might as well have an-
other rodeo the next day.
This year we had a total of
15 rodeos and all but two
were one-day rodeos. We
want to have eight two-day
rodeos which will equal 16
rodeos with a lot less mon-
ey spent. I have a lot of
ideas for fund raising also.
I would like to have a re-


verse rodeo, scavenger
Hunts and things like that.
I am looking forward to a
great 2006-2007 FHSRA
Year!"

Keaton Beach Fishing Report


Well, we dodged a bullet
from Alberto and the water*
should be calmed back down
by the Weekend.
Trout fishing has been great
of late with lots of trout over
20-inches long for my char-
ters of late. Reds have been
hit and miss. Cobia have been
plentiful with lots of young
immature fish under the slot
limit. Remember a cobia
must be 33-inches long inside
to the fork of the tail to the-tip
of it's nose; not 33-inches
overall! Lately some folks
seem to be missing that?.
My charter last week Kathy
and Joe Scalpi of Pananama
City Beach had eight trout a
Spanish and a 26-inch redfish
on Wednesday, then had 10
trout and two reds on Thurs-
day. They 'had three trout
over 20-inches long Thurs-
day. We were fishing with
live pinfish under Cajun
Thunders both days.
Saturday, I had Daniel and
his son Ethan Edwards of
Murfreesboro, Tenn. and they


landed 11 trout with three
over 20-inches long, all
caught on live pinfish fished
under a 2.5-inch oval Cajun
Thunder.
Edward Thomas took
Charles and Kenneth Bennett
of Lawrenceville, Ga and Jer-
ry Braselton of Monroe and
Ronny Gonzales of Comer,
Ga. out and they brought in
23 trout on Friday with two
flounder then had 25 trout
Saturday with three reds 23,
26 and 29 inches long. (re-
.leased the. 29-inch one) Ed-
ward is fishing with Berkley
Gulp shrimp under Cajun
Thunders in five feet of water.
Offshore Ben Barbee, Billy
Pillow and, I managed to get
out last Friday and brought in
three grouper, six mangos,,
(Ben' had one *over six
pounds) five red snapper,
with 13 triggerfish from all
sorts of depths and all
sorts of baits. Suffice it to say
you really ought'a try in 45
feet of water, with squid .
of course!


NFCC rolls out NFCC Men's Basketball Academy


NFCC BASKETBALL TRYOUTS: Coach Clyde Alexander, left, and
Marcus Hawkins, right, will conduct tryout for Men's Basketball
Academy on July 8. Photo: Submitted


July 8 tryouts target
grads with hiiop skills
North Florida Community
College (NFCC) is rolling
out the red carpet for its new
basketball academy designed
to attract African-American


males with varsity basketball
experience. The program is
in the process of recruiting
24 to 30 young men from the
surrounding area to enroll as
full-time students and partic-
ipate in a structured basket-
ball development program.


NFCC will hold open tryouts
.from 9 a.m.-2 p.m., Saturday,
July 8 at the Colin P. Kelly
Gym on the NFCC campus in
Madison.
The academy will operate
as a preparatory program and
club level sport, as opposed
to an intercollegiate activity.
The basketball academy
works individually with stu-
dents to hone their academic
and sports skills to prepare
them for possible recruitment
to intercollegiate programs.
Scholarship and/or financial
aid opportunities are avail-
able for qualified African-
American men with either a
high school or GED diploma.
Head basketball coach
Clyde Alexander will direct
the program. "This is an op-
portunity at two levels: One,
to attract more minority
males from the district to.our
,college through the academy;
and, two, the possibility of
greater minority participa-
tion overall, at, NFCC," he
said.
He also said, "My jbb is to


see that these young men are
retained in college through'
the academy and that they
succeed. Our goal is to see
that they start and finish our'
program. "
Joining Alexander are for-
mer NFCC student Marcus
Hawkins, a basketball stand-
out at North Georgia State
and assistant coach at Madi-
son County High last year,
and Devona Sewell who will
coordinate academic advis-
ing'for academy students.
Adrian Dorsey, assistant
baseball coach, will oversee
conditioning and physical
training.
The project is funded by a
grant from the Florida legis-
lature with the, support of
Senator Al Lawson of Talla-,
hassee. Dr. Steve Givens,
athletic director and head
baseball coach,, designed the
project. `
"We're excited to be fund-
, ed for this project. I think
this has the potential to 'put


us on the cutting edge of a
nation-wide initiative to at-
tract more African-American
males to college," said-
Givens.
Saturday's activities in-
clude tryouts in the morning,
complimentary. lunch, then
an information session in the
afternoon. Participants
should wear basketball shorts
and tee shirts, with appropri-
'ate basketball footwear.
NFCC will announce acade-
my selections the following
week'.
In addition to sports skills
training, the project offers
academic support and men-
toring, as well as social edu-
cation instruction to improve
the success rate of students.
Students will also sign a con-,
tract affirming their commit-
ment to academic and athlet-
ic goals..

Dove Club permits go on Sale July 1


Each year, the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) offers'
exceptional dove hunting op-
portunities throughout the
state. The FWC manages
eight special-opportunity,
dove fields through its Dove
Club-the agency's special-op-
.portunity dove hunt program.
Beginning 10 a.m. (EDT)
July 1, sportsmen can pur-
chase dove club permits at
any county tax collector's of-
fice, authorized license agent,
on-line at MyFWC.com/dove
or by calling toll-free 888-
HUNT-FLORIDA (800-486-
8356). The deadline to pur-
chase permits is 11:59 p.m.
(EDT) Sept. 10.
Dove club permits are
available on a first-come,
first-served basis and allow
one adult and one youth (un-
der age 16) to participate in
all scheduled hunts for a des-
ignated dove field (up to
eight days). These Saturday
half-day hunts cost $150 and
enable the permit holder and
youth to both take a daily bag
limit of birds.
Dove hunting opportunities
are in high demand, and these
special hunts offer the perfect
setting for friends and family
to hunt together in a social at-
mosphere. Hunters who pur-
chase the annual permits save
more than half the cost of reg-
ular daily permits for the sea-
son.
There are three new spe-
cial-opportunity dove fields
that will be open this coming
season-Allapattah Flats Pub-
lic Small-Game Hunting Area
(PSGHA) in Martin County,
Fussell Farm PSGHA in Polk
County and Watermelon Pond
PSGHA in Alachua County.
The other five special-op-
portunity dove fields already
are familiar to some hunters,


because they were open last,
year. They are: Schneider
Farms PSGHA (Escambia
County), Caravelle 'Ranch
(Putnam County),
Dexter/Mary Farms Unit (Vo-
lusia County), Hilochee
(Lake County) and Frog Pond
(Miami-Dade County).
Dove "day" permits also
are available for $35. These
daily permits enable one
adult and one youth (under
age 16) to hunt together but
only allows one bag limit of
birds between the two
hunters.
Additionally, there is an
option to buy a $10 youth


permit at the same time a
dove day permit is purchased.
The youth permit allows the
youth to harvest his own.dai-
ly bag 'limit of birds, while
hunting under the supervision
ofthe adult dove day permit
holder. The dove day and
youth permits go on sale 10
a.m.-(EDT) Sept. 18, and they
are transferable.
Interested hunters should
purchase permits early, be-
cause demand for these hunts
often exceeds their availabili-
ty. For more information on
these great dove hunting op-
portunities, visit

Matt Hawkins Gets Season Back on Track at Berlin


New voice
During the first part of
the 2006 season, Matt
Hawkins spent many
weekends hoping for
his bad luck string to fi-
nally be snapped, only
to have to wait another
week. The team of the
#22 Late Model never
gave up and traveled to
tracks around the coun-
try trying to put togeth-
er the right combination
to get that strong run
that will kick-start the
18-year-old's season.
All it took was a trip
north to Berlin, MI, and
a helpful new voice on
the radio to get the fin-
ish that the driver arid
team have deserved all
season.
Hawkins started from
the outside of the front
row in Wednesday
night's ASA Late Model
Challenge Series 200-lap
event at the 7/16-mile
Berlin Raceway and-
raced inside the top 10
all night long. A late-
race charge brought the
young hotshoe to an im-
pressive fourth-place
finish against some of
the stiffest short track
competition with the
help of veteran
NASCAR racer Mike
Garvey.
"The way the season
started, this is almost
like a win," said
Hawkins. "We. had
Mike-come with;'.us;%.to
Berlin just to 'try to find
the little something that
we've been lacking this
season. We've had
good racecars every'
week, but we just heed-
ed to seal the deal. We
were able to put all the
pieces together tonight
and this fourth-place'
run was a real boost to
this team."
Hawkins brought his
#22 to Berlin two weeks,
ago and tested. Utiliz-
ing the advice from Gar-
vey, who cut his racing
teeth at the historic
Michigan oval, Hawkins
returned to the track
Wednesday looking for
the total package on the
racetrack. He knew that
it would be tough racing
in the same event with
some of the biggest
names in short track rac-
ing history like ASA
and NASCAR stars
Mike Eddy, Butch
Miller, David Stremme
and Johnny Benson, but
Hawkins was not intim-
idated by the stiff com-
petition.
"The best of the best
were here tonight and
we showed that we can
race right there with
them. Those guys pret-
ty much started their ca-
reers at Berlin and
they've raced there for a
long time, but I was


right there with them,
even passing guys like
Eddy and Stremme on
the racetrack. It's a real
learning experience rac-
ing with some of those
guys, but it was fun be-
ing able to run with or


on the radio leads 18-year-old to career-best ASA Late Model Finish


even outrun them, too.
"I was running fourth
there at the end of the
race and I was following
Stremme and I really
wanted to pass him. I
didn't even think about

where he remained
throughout the first por-
tion of the race. The car
that had been a little on
the loose side all during
practice and qualifying
kept up its ill-handling
ways during the race.
Hawkins held on to his


loose #22 until the
halfway break, where
the MHR team, with the
assistance of Garvey,
put changes into the car.
"At the beginning it
was just incredibly
loose. It was pretty
much sideways every
corner. We stayed in-
side the top 10 for the


first 100 laps even with
the car being loose. We
came in for the pit stop
at halfway and the car
really wasn't a whole lot
better, but it really came
. on strong at the end. I
think the short runs
were what helped us.
We were able to get
through the lapped traf-


fic pretty well. At the
end the changes really
helped us get up to
fourth."
The fourth-place run
is just what the doctor
ordered as the MHR
team heads to one of
their home tracks next
weekend. Hawkins will
join back up with the


stars of the Georgia As-
phalt Series on June
24th at Peach State
Speedway in Jefferson,
GA. Hawkins has hun-
dreds of laps on the
North Georgia facility
and combined with the
momentum from Berlin,
the youngster is ready
to keep up the success.


"The Berlin race was
exactly what we needed
before heading to Peach
State. We've always run
well there in the past
and I think that we
learned a lot in the test
session there a couple
weeks ago, so I'm hop-
ing for some pretty big.
things there."

Bobby Labonte,
Spirit of Daytona
Prep For Brumos
Porsche 250
Bobby Labonte will dri-
ve the legendary No. 43
Dodge for Petty Enterpris-
es in the upcoming Pepsi
400 on Saturday, July 1.
On Wednesday,
Labonte turned his eyes to
one of the prelude events
to the Pepsi 400 the
Brumos Porsche 250 on
Thursday, June 29.
Labonte and the Spirit
of Daytona Racing team
were turning, test laps on
the historic 3.56-mile road
course with a pair of Day-
tona Prototypes as they
prep for the 71-lap, 250-
mile event.
The 2000 NASCAR
champion will bring his
sprint-race mentality to
the Brumos Porsche 250,
which will be part of his,
double duty effort during
the upcoming Pepsi 400
Weekend.
"Last year, running the
24 hours, that's the first
time I've ever run a race
in these types of cars,"
Labonte said. "The next
race we i vent to was here
(for the 250) and on
restarts, I was amazed'
how these guys get up
and go. I realized it's not
24 hours, it's the. 2
hours."
Labonte is quickly be-
coming a veteran of the
Rolex Sports Car Series
presented by Crown Roy-
al Special Reserve.
Earlier this year, he
competed with Spirit of
Daytona Racing in the
Rolex 24, his second ca-
reer start in the presti-
gious season-opening
event. Following the Bru-
mos Porsche 250, he'll
compete in two more
Rolex events with the
team that based in Day-
tona Beach area.
Racing the ultra com-
petitive Daytona Proto-
types in the Grand Ameri-
can Road RAcing Associa-
tion is something Labonte
is enjoying.
"They're fun,", Labonte
said. "They're great to
drive. A lot of competi-
tion, a lot of great cars out
there, great teams out
there and great drivers
out there. To be a small
part of it is really neat.
We're just hoping to get a
little bit stronger as we
go."
The Brumos Porsche 250
will be part of a double-
header on Thursday, June
29. Following the conclu-
sion of the race, Round 3
of the Crown Royal IROC
Series will be contested on
the road course, the first
road course event for the
All-Star circuit in 14
years.
Tickets for the Brumos
Porsche 250 and other
Pepsi 400 Weekend events
are available online at
www.racetickets.com or
by calling 1-800-PIT-
SHOP.

But it was former NASCAR

Wade Day who put together the
best performance when all of the
chips were on the line. Day held
off Ryan Lawler, Clattenburg,
Dennis Schoenfeld and Rowe to
win the fourth PASS South event
of the 2006 season. It was the

eral public access to the Hick-
ory Mound Impoundment, ex-
cept for the wildlife manage-
ment area permit, which is re-
quired for hunting on the
property."
Major portions of the con-
struction project include the
installation of two 1,000-foot-
long concrete geoweb spill- ,
ways; four, 5 feet by 5 feet
concrete water control struc-
tures; one aluminum water
control structure; and nearly
8,700 tons of riprap material
to reinforce the dike in areas
susceptible to storm erosion in
the past.
Additional armoring also
has been placed on nearly
1,500 feet of the dike dam-
aged by Hurricane Dennis last
year.

from Tennessee. "I
made my move when I could.
These cars are just so close that
you just can't wait. People don't
realize that the top-five cars were
separated by a snap of the finger.
That is how close it was." "
Day burst onto the national
racing scene in 2003 with the
aforementioned NASCAR title
and then won the Rookie of the
Year award on the ASA National
Tour the following season. Un-
fortunately, that also turned out to
be the final year for that series
and Day found himself without a
place to race after the season.
Since then, he has dabbled in Su-
per Late Models and Late Model
Stock Car competition. He has
competed in as many PASS
South events this season that his
schedule as 'the crew chief for

team will allow.

may have hazardous footing.
During very high tide
events, there is a possibility of
water covering the top of the
spillways, temporarily strand-
ing visitors between the two
structures. Officials will be
more proactive in closing the
impoundment during tropical
storm events to reduce the
risk of stranding users for ex-.
tended periods. Users also
should exercise caution during
above average high tides with
a- south wind.
"The reconstruction of the
impoundment dike is de-
signed to allow this structure
to withstand a 50-year storm
event by drastically reducing
the number of breaches that
have occurred in the past,"
Nicholson said. "Ultimately,
these upgrades will allow bi-


To win at Orange County, Day
had to endure a restart with three
laps to go with a hard-charging
Lawler lining up on the outside
of him due to the PASS double-
file restart rule. Lawler had start-
ed last after missing all of prac-
tice and qualifying with axle
problems, but worked his way
steadily through the field overthe
course of the race.
On the final restart, Day, who
started 15th himself, got the hole
shot and beat Lawler into turn
one. After that, he pulled away
and cruised to victory.
"I knew that it was going to be
one hell of a race," Lawler said of
the last three laps. "Man, he got
a good jump on the start. It was
really good racing. I'm still
learning, but we'll be back. I'm
having a blast."
"Until we got to the front, I
was restarting in fourth gear be-
cause I was just running them

Rowe retains the PASS South
point lead with his fifth-place fin-
ish.
"We had a really good car and
the #96 [Day] got into my right
front a little bit and that was our
day," said Rowe. "But that's rac-

Who invented carpet?
A Carpets were probably first made by
nomadic peoples to cox cr the earthen
floor in their tents. It is not certain
however, if the Egyptians, the Chinese, or even
the Mayas first invented carpet making. It is
quite possible that many peoples, none of
whom were in contact with each other, began
to make carpets at about the same time.

It may not be certain who exactly invented
carpet, but one thing is certain, we here at Live
Oak Paint Center have the best variety, price &
selection around on Mohawk, Shaw, and
Southwind carpets. So, come see us today!

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
telephone lines for its outage-
reporting system. But customers may
experience busy signals and longer-
than-normal waits during times of
high call volumes.


Here are a few tips to follow for your safety:
* If someone In your home Is dependent on medical equipment
requiring electricity, 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.


l
*To prepare for outages, it is wise to have plenty of fresh batteries
for flashlights and radios.
* If you have a gasoline-powered electric generator, use It In well-
ventilated areas and only plug in Individual appliances. Never
connect a generator to 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 iterns you would need in 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
auoai.Pun~t ti m Miptnpnwr


- 620 Houston Ave. NW Live Oak, FL 32064


* If you require transportation assistance during an evacuation, auto..ati equipment time t >e.tr power.
register in advance with the Civil Defense and Office of Emergency Listen to your local radio and TV stations for,
Management in your county. weather pdates and information from SVEC.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that
smoking remains the leading cause of preventable'death and has
negative health impacts on people at all stages of life. It harms unborn
babies, infants, children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Surprisingly,
at least a quarter of the United States' population still continues-to, light
up, says the CDC.
Cigarette smoking has decreased over the years by at least. 50
percent (nearly 45 percent of the population smoked during the 1960s).
But there are those who continue to put themselves at risk despite the
warnings of doctors, the government, friends and family, In addition,
e, many smokers subject spouses and children to secondhand smoke,
s, needlessly endangering not only themselves, but their loved ones as
well.
Smoking has many health implications. Here are a few to consider,
courtesy of the U.S. Surgeon General:
fCancer-causing agents (carcinogens) in tobacco smoke damage
73-F important genes that control the growth of cells, causing them to grow
abnormally or to reproduce too rapidly.
The carcinogen benzoapyrene binds to cells in the airways and major
o.D organs of smokers.
Smoking affects the function of the immune system and may
increase the risk for respiratory and other infections.
Nicotine reaches the brain within 10 seconds after smoke is inhaled.
It has been found in every part of the body and in breast milk.
By smoking around infants, you put them at a greater risk for Sudden
Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
The body produces antioxidants'to help repair damaged cells.
Smokers have lower levels of antioxidants in their blood than do
nonsmokers. ,

ers of smoking


.;. -i


Smoking contributes to a number of health problems, including
heart disease, cancer, reproductive problems and more.
problems to the fetus and complicate the pregnancy. Pregnant women
who smoke are more likely to have placental abruption, where the
placenta prematurely separates from the wall of the uterus. This can lead
to preterm delivery, stillbirth or early infant death. In babies who make it to
term, smoking can cause. low.birth weight and birth defects. Yet despite
these warnings, only 20 to 25 percent of women quit smoking-upon
learning they are pregnant, says the CDC.
COMMIT TO QUIT
Nicotine is a very potent chemical. Some argue that it produces a
greater physical addiction than heroin or cocaine. Nicotine produces a
feeling of euphoria in smokers. Once the drug reaches the brain, it can
cause a calming and soothing feeling, which is what draws:many people
back for more. Yet, smoking can be stopped if you are committed to.
quitting. There are a number of nicotine replacement products available
that can help you gradually wean off of cigarettes. Just keep in mind that it
can take up to 72 hours for full nicotine detoxification to take place in the
body -- releasing you from Ihe physical withdrawal symptoms. However,
t' he'mental'dependence could bWequaliyas' srong.! .'
Quitting smoking at any stage in your smoking career provides
immediate health benefits. Your chances for contracting diseases drop
and, with time, your lungs can gradually heal themselves and function
properly again. For help in quitting, visit the American Cancer Society at
www.cancer.org, or the American Lung Association at www.lungusa.org.

Here is a look at the major illnesses that can occur as a
result of smoking.
CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Cigarette smoking has been linked to many illnesses, including heart
disease and stroke. Smoking can cause coronary heart disease, which
results from atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries. Toxins in the blood
from smoking cigarettes contribute to the development of
atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a progressive hardening of the
arteries caused by the deposit of fatty plaques and the scarring and
thickening of the artery wall. Inflammation of the artery wall and the.
development of blood clots can obstruct blood flow and cause heart
attacks or strokes.
LUNG CANCER
Cancer is the second leading cause of death and was among the first
diseases linked to smoking, says the Surgeon General. Cigarette
smoking is responsible for most cases of death in conjunction with
cancer.It can cause lung cancer as well as cancers in the mouth;'thro"t
and bladder. Men who smoke are more likely to develop lung cancer than
their female counterparts -- yet the risk is high regardless of age or sex.
REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH
Smoking can affect reproduction and fertility in a number of ways. It
has been shown that smoking can make it harder for women to get
pregnant. Should a woman get pregnant, smoking can cause many

Move more-weigh less!


, It is those little things.
that add up in the quest
for optimal health.
Most of us already
know outstanding
health can be obtained
by eating smaller por-
tion of nutritious
foods, along with an.
active,' non-sedentary
lifestyle. Health care
professionals remind
us that the more we
move, the more we
lose, and the better we


feel. Consider the fol-
lowing five simple
ways to add more steps
to your day.
1. Take the stairs.
Foregoing the elevator
and taking the stairs
can mean burning extra
calories. Maintain the
muscle strength in your
limbs by using them.
2. Stand around
more. Standing burs
more calories than sit-
ting. Planning to watch


television tonight?
Move around more
throughout the day.
Earn that hour of reali-
ty TV!
3. Walk it. Make the
decision to stop driving
places you 'could easily
walk, or park 'the car
half way and walk to
your destination.
4. Get a dog. Dogs re-
quire daily walks. Dai-
ly walks 'burn calories.
It's all good. .


5. Hold, it. While
standing (instead of sit-
ting), or walking your
dog or taking the stairs,
tighten your abdominal
muscles. Toned mus-
cles burn more calories.

"Buckle Up In Your Truck"


Law enforcement
agencies in the area are
joining others across the
state in an effort to save-
those who don't buckle
up. The "Buckle Up In,
Your Truck" campaign
will be irn full force
throughout the state.
The National High-
way Traffic Safety Ad-
ministration (NHTSA)
reported that pickup.
truck .drivers and their
passengers are among.
the least likely motorists
to regularly use safety
belts. In 2005, Florida's
observed safety belt us-
age among pickup truck
drivers and passengers
\was less than 62 percent
as compared to almost
75 percent in cars: and
over 79 percent in vans
and SUV's.-
According to the most


recent national data, 66
percent of the 29 pickup,
truck cab occupant fatal-
ities in Alachua County
were unbuckled.
Buckle Up In Your
Truck, a statewide ini-
tiative funded by the
Florida Department of
Transportation, is coor-
dinated in conjunction
with the NHTSA, state
and local highway safe-
ty, arid law enforcement
leaders across an eight-
state region in the
Southeastern U.S.
Florida had the high'
est number of pickup
truck fatalities among
the eight Southeastern
states with 343 deaths in
'2004, according to na-
tional data. This reflects
a nine percent increase
from the number of
pickup truck fatalities as


compared to the previ-
ous year.
"No more warnings.
No more excuses. We'
want pickup .truck dri-
vers and passengers to


always buckle up," said.
Lieutenant Michael Bur-.
roughs, Florida High-
way Patrol. "With the
rising number of fatali-
ties, it is crucial to buck-
le up-every trip, every
time. We will do, what-
ever it takes to send this
message loud and


clear."
The effect of non-safe-
ty belt usage by pickup
truck occupants is evi-
dent in fatal crash statis-
tics. Research indicates


that three out of four
pickup truck occupants
killed in crashes were
not using a-safety belt.
"We are in -full sup-
port of law enforcement
initiatives that. remind
motorists and their pas-
sengers to buckle up,
said Florida Department


of Transportation Secre-
tari .Denver Stutler.
"\Ve truly believe that
the. Buckle Up In Your
Truck campaign has the
ability to. save lives
across the state through
heightened awareness
and increased safety belt
usage."'
Buckling up is the sin-
gle best defense in a.
pickup truck crash. ItI
will increase odds ofI
survival by as much ;as :
80 percent in the event
of 'a rollover crash. '
While rollovers carn oc-
cur in any kind of pas-
senger vehicle, pickup
trucks are twice as likely
to rollover as cars be-
cause they have a higher
center of gravity .
While other states in',
the Southeastern region
are targeting the Buckle


Up In Your Truck mes-
sage to specific areas
with high numbers of
pickup truck:, fatalities,
Florida is. one of only
two states launching the
campaign statewide as
pickup truck occupants
are over-represented in
fatal crashes and have
the low-est safety belt us-
age rate compared to
other vehicle' types in
the state. Television and
radio public service an-
nouncements developed
by NHTSA for this
eight-state initiative w\'ill
air throughout Florida.
in all the major media
markets to help increase
awareness .

Bronson urges consumers to

check out moving companies

as moving season arrives


Now that school is
out in Florida, the
prime. season for
moving has begun,
'and a little care can
go a long way in mak-
ing a move go
smoothly, according
to Florida Agr.iculture
and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson.
"Putting your trea-
sured family belong-
ings in the care of a
moving company can
be a difficult and ex-
pensive task," Bron-
son. said. "But by get-
ting a few estimates,
checking out the com-/
panies and under-
standing your rights
in the transaction, thd
odds that you"ll have
a trouble-free move
increase significant-
ly."
Under state law, all
intrastate moving
companies must be
registered with Bron-
son's Division of
Consumer Services-
and consumers are
encouraged to call its
toll-free hotline at 800.
HELP FLA (800-435-
7352) to makt sure
the company or com-
panies you are con-
sidering are regis-
tered and to check
their complaint histo-
ries.
Interstate moves-
those involving
moves from Florida to


another state, or froIm
another state to Flori-
da-are exempt from
state law and are
overseen by the US
Department of Trans-
portation's Federal
Motor Carrier Safety
Administration n,
which ca'n be reached
toll-free at 888 368-
7238.
Among safeguards
embodied in the law
governing intrastate
moves are:
All such 'movers
must be registered.
Companies are re-
quired to carry a min-
imum of $10,000 in
insurance to cover
any damage to the
furniture and other
families' belongings
that they're hauling.
Moving coimpa-
nies are required to
provide a written es-
timate of the total
cost of the move be-
fore a contract with
the consumer is
signed-and it is a
third-degree felony
for companies to
withhold a con-
sumer's household
goods provided that
the price called for in
the estimate is paid.
Additional informa-
tion on intrastate
moving can be ac-
cessed on the Divi-
sion of Consumer Ser-
vices Web site at

Is your body getting enough oxygen?


(ARA) Do you feel tired
all the time even though you
get eight hours of sleep a
night? Do your muscles throb
every time you complete a
workout even though you
exercise every day; or do you
experience occasional
irritability for no apparent
reason? If you answered yes
to any of these questions, your
problem may be a lack of
adequate levels of oxygen in
the blood.
Our bodies were designed
to operate in an environment
that existed hundreds of years
ago when 30 to 40 percent
of the air breathed was
oxygen. Due in a large part to
pollution, today, oxygen
levels are about half that 20
to 22 percent in most U.S.
cities; as low as 15 percent in
others.
According to Ed McCabe,
author of "Flood Your Body
With Oxygen," by living in an
oxygen-deficient environment
and not feeding our cells the
proper oxygen and nutrients
needed for cleaning out toxins
and wastes, our body fluids
and blood can become dirty
and toxic. A lack of oxygen to
our cells weakens our immune
system, which may lead to
viral infections, damaged
cells, bacterial growths,
inflamed joints, serious heart
and circulatory problems,
toxic buildup in blood and
premature aging.
However, if the cells in our
bodies are rich in oxygen,
mutated cells may be less able
to reproduce Other benefits
of having adequate levels of
oxygen in our systems:
increased energy; the ability
to maintain healthy
cholesterol levels; enhanced
brain function; a reduction in
stress; the ability to overcome
fatigue; and looking and
feeling younger.
So what can you do to
restore a healthy balance of
oxygen in your blood?
I Do more aerobic ex\ rcse

large miiscles-m your arm-.
legs and hips) such as w walking
or bicycling. When you're
aerobically fit, your bod:, is
more efficient at taking in and
using oxygen, which can help
you live longer and healthier.
2. Eat food-based
antioxidants, such as dark-
colored berries. They convert
'toxic free radicals in your
body into harmless elements.
If left unchecked, free radicals
will attach themselves to
oxygen molecules which are
supposed to be providing the
cells with energy, and instead
damage them.
3. Eat plenty of green, leafy
vegetables such as lettuce,
spinach, Swiss chard, and
mustard greens. They are a
good supply of Vitamin E
which is one of the
antioxidants that attacks free
radicals.
4. Take oxygen-enhancing
products, such as Oxygen
Elements Plus which supplies
the body's cells with a steady
diet of oxygen, full spectrum
minerals, amino acids, and
enzymes. To use the
supplement, simply add five
to seven drops to six to eight
ounces of purified water, juice
or some other beverage.
Gradually increase the
product usage over a two or
three week period until you
are using a maintenance
amount of seven drops three
times a day. Children may
use 1/4 to 1/2 the adult dose.
The Health and Longevity
Institute of San Marcos,
Calif, recently conducted a
test to determine the
effectiveness of Oxygen
Elements Plus. The


participants were instructed to
go about their lives as normal
- not changiAg their dietary,
exercise, medication or
normal supplement habits.
All they did different was add
seven drops of Oxygen
Elements Plus to their
drinking water or juice three
times a day for 30 days.
"Blood'samples taken at the
end of the testing period were
