If you see them working on the
side of the road, be glad. The
Suwannee County Sheriffs Office
work crews are covering a lot of
ground and cleaning up a lot of the
county. Since Sheriff Tony
Cameron took over in January of
2005, the program has expanded.
"We took on a lot more since the
Sheriff has been in," said Capt.
John Mills who is in charge of the
work crews. "We have expanded
quite a bit."
Mills helped institute the pro-
gram seven years ago.
The work crews now handle 41
assigned jobs per week and they
also do many special assignments.
For example, the work crews
helped prepare Wellborn for the re-
cent Blueberry Festival and they
work at the Suwannee County Fair.
There are currently two work
crews out cleaning up the county.
One is headed by Inmate Crew Su-

by the destructive 2005 hurri-
canes through USDA Farm
Service Agency (FSA), said
Kevin Kelley, SED.
The four programs, Live-
stock Indemnity Program,
Feed Indemnity Program,
Hurricane Indemnity Program
and Tree Indemnity Program,
are funded to use $250 million
from US Department of Agri-
culture Section 32 funds.
'To be eligible for this assis-
tance, a producer's loss must
have occurred in one of 26.1
counties that received a prima-
ry presidential or secretarial

A list of the eligible counties
in Alabama, Florida,
Louisiana, Mississippi, North
Carolina and Texas is .avail-
able at:

canelnfo.xml .
Livestock Indemnity Pro-
gram
The Livestock Indemnity
Program (LIP) will provide
payments to eligible livestock
owners and contract growers
who incurred the death of live-
stock due to the hurricanes. To
determine payments, USDA's
Farm Service Agency (FSA)
will multiply the number of el-
igible livestock by the pay-
ment rate of: (1) for livestock
owners, 75 percent of the live-
stock's average fair market


value; or (2) for contract
growers, 75 percent of the av-
erage sustained income loss.
More information on LIP is
available in the on-line LIP
fact sheet at:
www.fsa.usda.gov.
Feed Indemnity Program
The Feed Indemnity Pro-
gram (FIP) will provide pay-
ments to eligible livestock
owners and cash lessees who
suffered feed losses or in-
creased feed costs due to the
hurricanes. To calculate pro-
gram payments, FSA will
multiply the national payment
rate established for each live-
stock category by the number
of eligible livestock. More in-
formation on FIP is available
in the on-line FIP fact sheet at:
www.fsa.usda.gov.
Hurricane Indemnity Pro-
gram

ment. More information on
HIB is available in the on-line
HIP fact sheet at:

The Tree Indemnity Pro-
gram (TIP) will provide pay-
ments to eligible owners of
commercially grown fruit
trees, nut trees, bushes and


vines that produce an annual
crop and were lost or damaged.
due to the hurricanes. FSA
will base TIP payments on the
crop's proximity to the hurri-
canes based on) established
.tiers, which reflect the severity
of damage from least to most
severe. More information on
TIP is available in the on-line
TIP fact sheet, at:
www.fsa.usda.gov
Aquaculture Grants
USDA is also providing $25
million in block grants to the

tance to producers raising
aquaculture species in a con-
trolled environment as part of
a farming operation. Gover-
nors or their designees will de-
termine sign-up procedures

them recover from the devas-
tating effects of the hurricanes .

field of biofuels. Bronson is hosting a con-
ference to bring together the various ele-
ments critical to successful alternative en-
ergy programs to be held Aug. 31 through
Sept. 1 in Orlando. The event will serve as
a forum for researchers, industry represen-
tatives and policymakers to discuss the pro-
duction, distribution and use of biofuels,
particularly ethanol, in Florida.
"With gas prices near record levels and
demand for cheaper and cleaner altema-
tives growing, we hope to bring together
the necessary parties to make production
and distribution of ethanol and biodiesel a
reality in Florida," Bronson said. "The time
for discussing the need for alternative ener-
gies is over, now we must take steps to
bring the ideas to fruition."
Several companies have already .an-
noLunced plans to build ethanol plants in
Florida and a number of others have ex-
pressed interest. Bronson hosted a confer-
ence in January in Tallahassee where he
discussed his department's "Farm to Fuel"
program, as well as the national "25 by
'25" program which seeks to have the na-
tion's agriculture industry producing 25
percent of the energy consumed in the
United States by the year 2025. Bronson's
Farm to Fuel Program is designed to assist
Florida farmers and ranchers in producing
bio-fuel crops to reduce the nation's depen-,
dency on foreign oil.
"Locating ethanol production facilities
here will reduce our dependency on petro-
leum, offer a more economical alternative,
and create jobs and economic develop-
Sment," Bronson said. "In addition, this will
expand markets for our agriculture industry
in the form of energy crops and productive
use of agricultural waste products."
The conference comes on the heels of
the Florida Legislature passing comprehen-
sive energy legislation, much of which is
directed toward promoting renewable ener-
gy and providing a number of grants and
incenti\ esrgram-s 02 [ i '

>The Bible is "a product of man...Not of

God"

>Church leaders cast ballots to make
Jesus divine in the fourth century

>The church has conspired to keep all of

this a secret

2006 Florida Public Assistance 'Playbook' outlines FEMA reimbursement process


Officials from the Depart-
ment of Homeland Security's
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA) and the
Florida State Emergency Re-
sponse Team (SERT) have un-
veiled a widely anticipated
Public Assistance "playbook"
for use during the 2006 hurri-
cane season by Florida cities,
counties and eligible not-for-
profits. Though not needed for
Tropical Storm Alberto, the
guide was complete for the
start of hurricane season and
debuted on Florida's Public
Assistance (PA) Web site at
www.floridapa.org-an on-line
tool created after the 2004 sea-
son with FEMA funding to al-
low local, county and state of-
ficials to track their reim-
bursement applications
"This playbook fits in per-.
fectly with our preparedness
plans," said Florida Division
of Emergency Management
Director Craig Fugate. "In
concert with FEMA, we want
to ensure the Public Assis-
tance reimbursement process


Hurricane

Management Agency
(FEMA) and Florida's State
Emergency Response Team
(SERT), are working vigor-
ously to prepare for potential
storms that may strike Florida
in the coming months. An as-
pect of preparedness that can-
not be overstated, however, is
that of individual prepared-
ness.
"Preparedness is a responsi-
bility that FEMA aggressively
promotes and that must hap-
pen at all levels-from the in-
dividual to the local, state and
federal government," said
Scott Morris, FEMA's Direc-
tor of Florida Long-Term Re-
covery. "It is vital not only to
prepare, but also to prepare
for any special needs that you
or a member of ypur fa inil ,,,
may have. ', t ... -
Florida la;.retirees that ,"
evacuation assistance be
available to individuals with
special needs. If you require
special assistance and have
no family or friends available
to help in the event of an
evacuation, you may qualify
for evacuation assistance ser-
vices. If this is the case, you
should register with the local
emergency management
agency before disaster strikes.
General considerations for
those with family members
with disabilities:
Make prior arrangements
with your physician or check
with your oxygen supplier
about emergency plans for
those on respirators or other
electric-powered medical
equipment. Be sure to have
electrical back-up for any
medical equipment.
Maintain a two-week sup-
ply of such items as dress-
ings, nasal cannulas and suc-
tion catheters.
Maintain a two-week sup-
ply of medications, both pre-
scription and non-prescrip-
tion.
Keep copies of your med-
ical records.
Keep copies of prescrip-
tions for medical equipment,
supplies and medications.
Keep extra contact lenses

. FEMA's Director of Florida
Long-Term Recovery Scott R.,
Morris said the playbook is
the latest in a series of impor-
tant changes undertaken to im-
prove FEMA's hurricane pre-
paredness, response and re-
covery performance in the
state.
"When the Florida Long-
Term Recovery Office was es-
tablished in May 2005, its pri-
mary purpose was to take the
lessons learned following the
2004 season and drive change
in hurricane-recovery efforts,"
Morris said. "We promised to
fix what wasn't working, and
the PA reimbursement process
was at the top of the list. So
we went to work retooling our
internal processes and re-
sponding to concerns ex-
pressed by, local officials."

Batson-Cook community service efforts


Batson-Cook employees
recently worked with mem-
bers of the Boy Scouts of
America, North Florida
Council and The Cystic Fi-
brosis Foundation to raise
money for their respective
causes. The firms efforts
helped net S 11,000 for Spe-
cial Needs Scouting and
$45,000i for research and
development of a cure for
Cystic Fibrosis. a life-
threatening genetic disease.
Thousands of people at-
tended Scoutblast. a day for
Scouts to exhibit the hob-
bies and interests they have
acquired through Scouting.
At this event, patrons pur-
chased "Adventure Passes"
that provided coupons from
local businesses. Through
the sales of the "Adventure


Pass." money was raised to
help the over 2,600 partici-
pants of this classroom-
based program tr ing the
17-county Northeast Flori-
da region
Batson-Cook provided
vital assistance to Scout-
blast from its presence on
the steering committee to
on-site logistical support to
securing local business par-
ticipation. These essential
efforts ensured both the
success of the event as well
as the success of "Adven-
ture Pass" sales.
Shoot for a Cure! com-
bined record participation
with record fundraising.
Team sponsorship of this
Lewis-class scored shoot-
ing event and raffles pro-
vided avenues for dona-


tions to the Cystic Fibrosis
Foundation. Here. Batson-
Cook provided fundamen-
tal aid in the planning and
execution of this annual
event. With the firm's on-
site presence and its assis-
tance in securing teams as
well as in-kind contribu-
tions. the Shoot was con-
sidered the best yet in its
short five-year history.
Look for next year's Shoot
to offer even more fun.
"'Community involve-
ment is essential to the core
values of Batson-Cook,"
said Batson-Cook Senior
\ice President and General
Manager David Barksdale.
"The Boy Scouts and the
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
are two organizations, that
make a positive difference


in the lives of families
throughout the First Coast
area. We are proud to serve
them in their efforts to raise
money."

Making FRIENDS in a
healthy environment.

Why is this study impor-
tant?
Being overweight is a
problem among youth and
adults.
Rural areas have high rates
of overweight and obesity.
Being overweight could'
lead to health problems.
Being overweight could
have a negative impact on
self-esteem.
* Until now, there have been
few weight management pro-
gr.ams for families in rural
cominmuities.
This study will examine
ways to help you and your
children improve your eating
habits and increase your activ-
ity level to promote' healthy
body weight, positive self-es-
teem and a healthier lifestyle.
What will we be asked to
do?
Families who volunteer for
this research will participate in
a no-cost, four-month weight
management program includ-
ing:
Weekly group-based ses-
sions aimed at promoting
healthy lifestyles, physical fit-
ness and healthy body weight.
Food tasting.
Compensation for travel to
and from sessions.
Pedometers provided at
no-cost to help participants
track steps.
All activities will' take
place at the local Suwannee
County Extension office or
another facility within the
county.

The notice also said
t Harrell was given a set

ed a Live Oak address
Tommy Hugh Harrel for Harrell.
According to the ad-
ministrative complaint issued by Winn, during
the 2004-05 school year Harrell photographed a
female student in the classroom for non-acade-
mic purposes. Harrell told the student to come
back and see him.when she was 18, the com-.
plaint alleged.
Suwannee County Sheriffs Office (SCSO)
Investigator Wayne Musgrove said after receiv-
ing the complaint, SCSO confiscated Harrell's
school camera and computer for investigation.
"We could find nothing to, file criminal
charges against Harrell," Musgrove said. "Un-
less something else comes forward, no criminal
charges will be filed.'
Suwannee County School Personnel Director
Dr. Bill Brothers said after the District received
a complaint from SCSO about Harrell, the Dis-
trict suspended him to conduct their own inves-
tigation. Harrell retired three days later,' Broth-
ers said.
This is not the first time Harrell has faced al-
legations of inappropriate conduct with stu-
dents, according to the administrative complaint
issued by .nWit. n 1994, iHarrell was involved
in an incident involving two Suwannee High'
School students who were attending SHTC at
the time.

"We have never had any
negative comments about the
work crews," Sheriff
Cameron said.
The work crews are taking
on more short-term projects.
Sheriff Cameron said they
have started cleaning up
some of the community-
owned cemeteries around the

According to an investigative summary about the
the 1994 incident prepared by Charles Blalock, me
then school superintendent Harrell told two fe-. FI
.male students he enjoyed taking photographs Firi
and would arrange a photo session for them Sh
free of charge. He approached one of the stu-
dents at the technical center, where he asked her De
to see him in his office to make arrangements ere
for the session, Blalock said.' Harrell ap- cle
poached the other girl about the matter at a lo- pa
cal restaurant in the summer, the report said. tak
After a lonL in' estigation intI the 1994 inci- 'Pa
dent, the Education Practices Conmmission Jer
(EPC) entered a final order in 1998. A settle- of
ment agreement was adopted that stated Harrell spl
"agrees to refrain from taking photographs of for
students who are less than 18 yeais of age w ith- an(
out supervision of a school administrator." ty.
The settlement required Harrell to be placed S
on two years probation, complete a college alv
course or inservice training on women's issues
and pay the EPC $150 for each probationary L
year. Harrell's supervisor was required to file
quarterly reports to the EPC concerning his C
teaching performance. Harrell was successful in
meeting the requirements. sto
Since retiring in 2004, Harrell has moved to mi
PPalatka. Contacted at his home this week, he dai
did not admit nor deny allegations. Harrell said Flo
he has not received notice from DOE about the say
allegations. goi
"There's no way to comment. There's going ize
to be a lawsuit like you won't believe. It's a big F
mess," he said. thi
The case, which is being handled by the ,' vic
DOE, in the 2004 incident: is continuing:., ,,; i, egc

CIVIC SUWANNEE


Kiwanis Club takes victory over SHS Key Club


Submitted by Danny
Hales
The Live Oak Kiwanis
Club trounced the Key
Club of Suwannee High
School recently in a dom-
inating' :fashion. Starting
with the coin toss the Old
Men and the Woman of
Kiwanis came out smok-
ing, winning the toss and
electingg to take the field.
The Key Clubbers put up
a goose egg in the top of
the first, with good de-
fense play by Kiwanis.
MVP Joel Turner, anchor-
ing the defense at short-
.stop, made a good catch
in that inning, which he
duplicated time and time
again as the game pro-
gressed. Ace pitcher Dan-
n\ Hales lead off with an
infield "home run" tor
the Kiwx anis and the Ki-
w1anis put up 6 more in
the bottom of the tirst to


totally demoralize the
young Key Clubbers.
The Kiwanis guys and
gal kept scoring, and
their defense held the
Clubbers to only a few
"legal" runs, as Jon
Wood, Jimmy Prevatt, Joe
Flanagan, Bill Harris,
Monja Robinson, Charlie
Blalock, Dave Jenness,
Rob Cathcart, and self-
appointed "Manager"
George McKniiht made
defensive play after.play
thwarting any .seriouLP ef-
fort of the young Key
Clubbers. Brantly Hel-
venston also was in the
field. Play was not with-
out controversy as the
Clubbers claimed three
out; in the bottom of the
fourth. 1hen only tw-o
had been made. The
scorekeeper said there
were indeed only two
outs vet not even .stellar


counselor Prevatt, could
win the case against
Coach Wood of the Club-
bers. Also following the
game it was also "al-
leged" that the Clubbers
had "sneaked" a few ex-
tra base runners on base
accounting for more than
an illegal score or two.
In the end, however, all
present gave rave re-
views to the "feast", the
award presentations, the
"thoughtful. moving and
humorous" installation of
new officers by Helven-
ston, as well as the "Bat-
tle on the Diamond." 'If
you didn't come, you
missed out ... big time.
The Kiwanis Club was
presented \\ith the World
Famous Governors Cup
trophy at the W\ednesday
Kiw\ anis Club meeting on
N a\ 10.

VIEWPOINT


The Declaration of Independence


Drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28,
1776, the Declaration of Independence is at once the nation's
most cherished symbol, of liberty and Jefferson's most enduring
monument. Here, in exalted and unforgettable phrases, Jefferson
expressed the convictions in the minds and hearts of the American
people. The political philosophy of the Declaration was not new;
its ideals of individual liberty had already been expressed by John
Locke and the Continental philosophers. What Jefferson did was
to summarize this philosophy in "self-evident truths" and set forth
a list of grievances against the King in order to justify before the
world the breaking of ties between the colonies and the mother
country. We invite you to read a transcription of the complete text
of the Declaration..

The Declaration of Independence of the Thirteen
Colonies
Presented by the Indiana University School of Law-
,.i-. 'Bloomington-

The Declaration of Independence of the Thirteen
Colonies
In CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of
America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for
one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected,
them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth,
the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and.
of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of
mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel
them to the separation .
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created'
equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain in-
alienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pur-
suit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are
instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent
of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government be-,
comes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to al-
ter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its
foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such
form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and
Happiness.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long estab-
lished should not be changed for light and transient causes; and
accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more
'disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right them-
selves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing in-
variably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under
absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off
such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future se-
curity.
Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and
such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their for-
mer Systems of Government. The history of the present King of
Great Britain [George III] is a history of repeated injuries and
usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an ab-
solute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be sub-
mitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome arid
necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and
pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his
Assent should be obtained, and when so suspended, he has utter-
ly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of
large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the
right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to
them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, un-
comfortable, and distant from the depository of their public
Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance


BIBLE VERSE

"The Lord will fulfill His purpose for

me; your love, 0 Lord, endures forever
-- do not abandon the works of Your
hands." Psalm 138:8


with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for oppos-
ing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause
others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of
Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exer-
cise; the State remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dan-
gers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States;
for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of For-
eigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hith-
er, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his
Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers. *
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure
of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither
swarms.'of Officers to harmss our people, and it out. their sub-
siance. .-, ;' ,, -
He has kept among us,! in times of peace, Standing Armies,
without the consent of our legislatures..,
He has affected to render the Military independent of and su-
perior to the Civil power.
He'has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction for-
eign to our constitution and unacknowledged by our laws; giving
his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them by a mock Trial from punishment for any
Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these
States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended of-'
fences:
For abolishing the free' System .of English Laws in a neigh-
bouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government,
and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example
and fit instrument for introducing the'same absolute rule into
these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable
Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves
invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here by declaring us out of his
Protection and waging War against us. .
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our,
towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Merce-
naries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, al-
ready begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely
paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the
Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the
high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the exe-
cutioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by
their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has en-
deavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merci-
less Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare is.an undistin-
guished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Re-
dress in the most humble terms. Our repeated Petitions have been
answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is
thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to
be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren.
We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their
legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us.
We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration
and settlement here.
We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and
we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to dis-

avow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our
connections and correspondence.
They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consan-
guinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which de-
nounces our Separation, and hold theri, as we hold the rest of
mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends:
We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of
America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the
Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do,
in the Name, and by the authority of the good People of these
Colonies, solemnly publish and declare.
That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought'to be Free
and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Alle-
giance to the British Crown, and that all political connection be-
tween them and the State of Great Britain is and ought to be to-
tally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have
full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, estab-
lish Commerce, and to do all-other Acts and Things. which Inde-
Spendent States rnav pright do. r ,-,'
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on
the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each

Tips for angling in the

summer heat
School's out for the summer riot only,
for two-legged kids but also for schools of
little finny critters. Kids are looking for
something to do, and schools of fry and fin-
gerlings spawned this spring, are now on :;
their own. However, summer school is
coming for largemouths seeking open-\ water
prey such as threadfin and young gizzard
shad. Keep an eye out for leaping baitfish
and track them down with a shiny Rat-L-
Trap or similar shad-imitating lure \vith
plenty of flash.
All the magazines from up north talk
about going deep for summer bass, but
most of Florida's lakes don't have many
deep spots so, what's a bass angler to do? It
may come as a surprise to some anglers
that ad\ ice about looking for river channels
or spring boils does apply to Florida fish-

.ination put Chambliss
and his parents into a
pickle. But after think-
ing long and hard over,
several weeks, Chamb-
liss decided to accept an
offer from the Royals.
Chambliss set off at .
5:30 a.m. Monday morn-
ing, June 26, to join the
Idaho Falls Chukar-s, the
Royals' High A, Short


Season Farm Team.
"I weighed the risk
and rewards of coming
back. and I just thought
the risks outweighed the
rewards," Chambliss
said. "I really thought
about it, and my goal
has always been to play
major-league baseball,
so why pass it up?"
According to dad,,
Johnny Chamibliss, Tyler
did receive five semes-
ters of additional col-
lege so he can finish his
Degree plus a signing
bonus.,
Chambliss was one of
five Seminoles selected
in the recent Major
League Baseballb draft.

The 9u Swamp Dogs had a strong show-
ing on their way to the District Champi-
onship at the Babe Ruth Baseball District
1 Tournament this past weekend over in
Lake City. Suwannee won all three games
they played and outscored their opponents
54-8 during the weekend. This sets up
what they hope will be a run at the State
Championship being held right here in
Live Oak, July 6 through July 10.
In game one of the tournament, Suwan-

day. Parker Stephens and Johnny LeDew
had two hits for Suwannee as Kyle Reed

Union offense from the mound.
In game two,. Suwannee really got the
bats going as they beat Ft. White 20-0.
Trevor Ross, Jackson Greene, Rhett Bald-

Brandon Furry all collected doubles and
scored two runs each in the game. Johnny
LeDew and Luke Poppell combined on the

Davis wanted the celebra-
tion to be for and about chil-
dren. "this weekend is not all
about Andra Davis," Davis
said. "It is about the kids,
who are our future, the par-
ents like me who need to be
there to love and support our
kids, and the older genera.7,

Davis listed the things ihe -"
believes you need to do in
order to be successful
1. Believe in God, He will
pave the way.
2. Believe in yourself; if
you don't no one else will.
3. Get good grades; this is
your solid foundation.
4. Apply yourself; work
hard. Don't let anyone out
work you.
5. Set your priorities; try to
make the right decisions.
6. Work harder than any-
one else.
7. Dream big. Don't settle
for anything and go for it all.
The celebrations kicked off
Friday evening, June 23,
with the banquet. This year's
banquet went off without a
hitch due to the efforts of the
African Baptist Church. The
banquet was held in the din-
ing hall. The meal was deli-'
cious and served hot by a
crew of servers.
Dr. Michael Baker, a local
boy raised on a farm in
McAlpin, was the guest
speaker. Baker holds a Ph.D
and masters degree in electri-
cal engineering and a doctor-
ate from Lewis and Clark
College of Law. Baker is the
director of intellectual prop-
erty, operations and Technol-
ogy at IPValue Management
Corporation in Bridgewater,
NJ.
Baker spoke about grow-
ing up on a farm in Suwan-
nee County and about having
to overcome something he
labeled as SID. He spoke of
SID as if it were a person.
He said SID was a guy he
met when he was in the
fourth grade. Baker said SID
stands for Slow, Inferior and
Dumb.
Baker spoke of the battle
to get rid of SID. He said
first you have to realize you
are not SID and you can't
beat SID alone. Second "You
got to do the work," Baker
said. To get where you want
to go."
"You can do it, you can
make it happen," Baker said.
"But first thing you got to


deal with SID."
The Andra Davis Day es-
say entries were read and
judged at the banquet. Sierra
Wilson and Frank Snead Jr.
were this year's'winners.
Saturday, June 24, the An-
dra Davis Day Parade started
from the old K-Mart parking

High School Rodeo Finals.
Both young cowboys start-
ed riding at age five in the
Suwannee River Riding Club
and worked their way up as
ropers in the Southern Junior
Rodeo Association. When
they entered the ninth grade,
they joined the Florida High
School Rodeo Association.
In ninth grade, Brown took
first place heeling with part-
ner Bradley Massey of Perry
in the FHSRA for team rop-
ing. In 10th grade, Brown
took second place with
Massey. In Brown's 11th-
.grade year, he teamed up.
with a new header Tyler
Byrd. Together Byrd and
Brown took first place in the
FHSRA for both their junior
and senior years in team rop-


ing.
In ninth grade, before Byrd
teamed up with Brown, Byrd
placed third in FHSRA stand-
ings with heeler Dakota
Shipp. In 10th grade, Byrd
took first place with heeler
Arky Rogers of Lake City.
This fantastic roping team
won the International Finals
Youth Rodeo held in
Shawnee, OK. in 2005 for
team roping taking home
money, belt buckles, trophy
saddles and a Cinch Clothing
sponsorship. The boys are
featured on a billboard in
Shawnee, where this rodeo is
held every year, along with
other event winners.
The two boys will team up
again this year and head to
Shawnee on their way to the
National High School Rodeo
Finals where they will also
compete.

Florida anglers need to note
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has added an inch to
the minimum size for snook
starting in September when
snook season reopens.
The FWC approved a rule
Thursday to increase the snook
minimum size'limit to 27 inch-
es total length' Previously, the
minimum size was 26 inches.
The Commission did not
change the 34-inch maximum
size limit for snook.
The FWC passed the 'new
rule to complement another
new regulation which takes ef-
fect July 1. That regulation re-
quires snook to be measured
by determining the straight-
line distance from the .most


Measuring.
A standard way for anglers to
measure saltwater fish accurate-
ly against size restrictions takes
effect July 1. The Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission is implementing a
series of rules approved last year
to clarify'and standardize how.to
measure the total length of salt-
water fish.
Saltwater fish are divided into
two categories. Fish that have
"flat" or irregularly shaped tails
are measured by "total length.",

ing, especially if you're in
reservoir like Rodman or

.Then, finding old riverbeds

offer a valuablee starting

forward point of the head with
the mouth closed, to the far-
thest tip of the tail with the tail
compressed or squeezed to-
gether, while the fish is lying
on its side.
Increasing the snook mini-
mum size limit by one inch
will compensate for a slight in-
crease in length some anglers
may achieve when measuring
snook this way, and likely will.
increase snook spawning
stocks by decreasing snook
harvest by 22 percent on Flori-
da's gulf coast and by 12 per-
cent on the Atlantic coast.
The Commission decided
not to raise the maximum size
limit for snook because that
could increase the harvest of
large spawning snook which


are important to maintaining
healthy stocks.
A recent FWC stock assess-
ment .for snook indicates
snook harvest has been in-
creasing in Florida because
more anglers are fishing for
snook, and consequently, the
management goal is falling
short for this popular sport
fish. .
To address this, the FWC is
convening a stakeholder group
to review snook management
issues, and the Commission
will consider further adjust-
ments to snook regulations, if
management changes are rec-
ommended.
The harvest of snook is pro-
hibited from Dec. 15 through
Jan. 31 statewide and from


saltwater fish correctly


Fish that have forked or angled
tails are commonly measured by
"fork length." ,
New rules provide that. salt-
water fish that are regulated by
total length must be measured
by determining the'straight-line
distance from the most forward
point of the head with the mouth
closed, to the farthest tip of the'
tail with the tail compressed or
squeezed together, while the fish
is lying on its side.
This method is sometimes


3 face activity and may rocket

through it after a well-pre-'
a sented lure entices them to
the surface.
It's much cooler and more
s comfortable for both anglers
and fish in early daylight
hours and at dusk during the
summer, and bass take ad-
t vantage of this relief. When
the sun is low in the sky,
bass will leave their deep-
water hideaways and head
to the shallows. That's when
r. shallow-water fishing with ,
d topwater lures can be anoth-
er thrilling \ av to entice
. ,. ,s* rik es: -... .
Buzzbaits and spinner
baits can also excite a bass
into giving chase. Follow-
ing a summer rain, look for
e currents of water that bring.

Keaton Beach Fishing

report 6-23-06


Keaton Beach avoided any
damage from Alberto, whatso-

surge?.
I guess these guys are really
spooked after Katrina to the
west and Dennis flooded so
many folks at St. Marks etc.
The water is clean and clear,
(too clear) all the way past
warrior r to the north. and
cloudy only after you get to
Grassy Isle bird rack, South.
Anyway 'the trout, reds,
Spanish, grouper and snapper
are just fine off Keaton.as I
had Spanish, Trout and reds
this week with all of my fish
coining i on live pinfish and
pilchards under Cajun Thun-


same plants, including mi-
croscopic algae, begin using
oxygen and depleting it
from the water. What's
%worse is warm water cannot
hold as much dissolved '
oxygen as cold water. Sum-
mer fish kills can also be
triggered by high nutrient
loads that lead to increased
plankton arid plant grow th.
During rainy or cloudNs peri-
o'ds,.these plants compete
with fish for oxygen: at a
time when oxygen levels al-
ready are low. Extreme con-
ditions result in fish kills.
Fortunately, most such'sum-
mer fish kills don't affect
all the fish. Many find
refuge areas ,and hold up.
until conditions improve.


Teddy and Debbie Fletcher
of Sycamore, Ga. fished Fri-
day and brought in nine
trout then fished Satur-
Sday and had 10 trout
while fishing live pin-
fish under Cajuns in 5

Offshore, Steve and Chris
Hendly and Phil Furney of

of water and fished-with squid
and live pinfish and brought in
red snapper,: vermilion snap-
per, Black Sea Bass, porgies,
grunts, a dolphin and a trigger-
fish. Kind of a who's '\ho of

Billy Pilloxv, Ben Barbee,'

Friday and brought in 20
grouper with five over 15
pounds and 12 over 10, then
caught 12 red snapper to seven
pounds and three ellowtail

snapper ate most anything you
put down there... including

Natural reproduction will
compensate for minor loss-
es. Small kills of this kind
are common and don't need
to be reported. But if the
kill is widespread, you
should call it in to the Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission fish kill hotline
at 1-800-636-0511.

Plan to win souls


Everybody talking about
winning souls isn't doing it!
Only five percent of ALL
Christians have ever tried to
lead somebody to Christ. Only
one percent ever lead anyone
to Christ and less than one-half
of a percent ever go back and
lead more lost people, to the
Lord.
The Psalmist tells us that
when we lead others to Christ
we'll doubtless come again
with the fruit of their labor
(Psalm 126:5, 6). Those that win
souls, will be rewarded in an
unimagined manner (Daniel
12:3). It is:said that those' who
win souls will shine "as the
stars for ever and ever.:" What
beauty they'll enjoy; what mag-
nificence!
You ought to lead others to


Christ because it is your re-
sponsibility (Jeremiah 48:10). It
is .your responsibility to get in
the battle! It is your responsi-
bility to help vanquish the ene-
my. Don't shirk your responsi-
bility!
Along with several other rea-
sons why you should win souls
the most important reason is it
is commanded (Matthew 28:19,
20). Jesus commissioned His
church to go out and make dis-
ciples that is soul winning.
Soul winning is making believ-
ers; disciples! If you are a, part
of. a local New Testament
church you have an obligation -
you've been commanded to
win souls!
Vance Hayner said, 'If our
unsaved friends were in dan-
ger ... we would go to their as-


distance without
apology. Yet Je-
sus came to seek
and to save the
lost (Luke 19:10)
and died for
their redemp-
tion. There is ,
something hyp- -
ocritical. about David H. Matter
claiming to believe that and'
acting as though it was unim-.
portant." Ask you pastor to
teach you how to lead your
friends and relatives to -a sav-
ing know ledge of the Lord Je-
sus Christ before it is eternally
too late. '

I've seen many cats like that, haven't
you?


Many may make money. But money nev-
er made a man.
NMoney never made a man happy or holy,
nor will it. There's nothing in its nature to
produce happiness here or heaven here-af-
ter.
Life's poorest investment is gaining
money and losing your soul. Our Lord
asked, "What shall it profit a man, if he
shall gain the whole world. and lose hisl
own soul?

Back to work


For many, going back to
work after an extended period
of time can be tough. Whether
you're a stay at home parent,
retiree or someone who has
taken time off due to a disabil-
ity, there's help available to
make your transition back into
the workforce a.smoother one.
Learn what to do, and what
to expect when returning to
the workforce, with the easy-
to-understand publication,
"Getting Back to Work," from


the Department of Labor and
the Federal Citizen Informa-
tion Center.
When going back to work,
think about what you did be-
fore. You may even discover
that you want to change ca-
reers. As you decide what you.
want to do, explore the de-T
mand for that type of work in
your community. For exam-
ple, have an informational in-
terview with someone in the
field you want to pursue. This


is a good way not only to find
out about upcoming positions
but also to network.
Once you've determined the
job you want to do, and veri-
fied that there is demand for
that work, take the next step
and apply. Read the "Go Land
a Job" section for more tips on
how to find openings, com-
plete applications, prepare for
job interviews and much
more. There's even advice for
job seekers who have irregular


work histories, and either too
little or too much work experi-
ence.
Leaving a job due to lay-
offs, illness or family obliga-
tions doesn't have to be a bad
thing. In fact, for some people
going back to work is.the start
of a new beginning. Use this
booklet to help take advantage
of what could be a golden op-
portunity.
Learn re-entry strategies
that will help you, by ordering


Getting Back to Work. This
publication costs $4.25. There
are three easy ways to get your
publication:
Send your name, address,
and a check or money order
for $4.25 to the Federal Citi-
zen Information Center, Dept.
130M, Pueblo, CO 81009.

How little it costs to take someone to
lunch, or to leave an extra dollar or two on
top of the standard tip. These small things
do not go unnoticed, and they improve the
quality of our lives and the lives of those we
touch. When was the last time we bought
flowers for the receptions secretary where
we work, or brought donuts to share with
co-workers, or simply made cookies to
share with family or friends? Although
these are minor things, they spread
happiness way out of proportion to the
effort expended. And quite interestingly we
will most likely never regret having given a
generous tip or sharing a meal with
someone. And, spreading the wealth
doesn't have to cost a thing. We can give a
compliment or ask someone how their day
was, and then really listen to their
response. When was the last time we
complimented our husband or wife on the
way they were dressed or the tastiness of a
meal they prepared? When was the last
time we invited a neighbor over for dinner?
There are a thousand different ways to
"spread the wealth," and each one will
undoubtedly make us richer than what we
give away.


0 divine Master, grant that I may not so much
seek to be consoled as to console; to be
'.:." understood as to understand; to be loved as to
love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in
pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in
S \ dying that we are born to eternal life.
St. Francis of Assisi

AGRICULTURE NEWS



Earth mothers


The total number of
farms in Florida may be down,
but the number of farms
owned or managed by women
is rising -
Historically women have
often been unseen partners on
the farm-hardworking
farmwives and daughters-es-
sential but largely unacknowl-
edged. Today, things have
changed; women.are stepping
out of the shadows and putting
a new face on American farm-
ing.
Women in agriculture are
making their presence known
in every state, and Florida is
no exception. They're chang-
ing the way food is grown and
sold and even how it tastes. In
Homestead, Teena Borek is
growing heirloom tomatoes in
all shapes and colors to supply
Miami's five-star restaurants,
and gourmet markets. In Mon-
-ticello, Dr. Cynthia Connolly
is producing organic musca-
dine wine at Florida's only
certified organic farm winery.
Meanwhile, Betty O'Toole of
Madison has found her niche
with organic herbs, luring cus-
tomers to her small farm with
workshops, daylong intern-
ships and tours of the farm's
sumptuous display gardens.
Around the country, farms
run by women are on the in-
crease. According to the US
Department of Agriculture,
the number of farms with
women as primary operators
grew 5S percent from 1075 to
19-"', and it is predicted that
as much as 75 percent of US.
farnliand will be owned by
\\omen by 2014. '
\VWomen come by the land-
and the job of farming-in a va-
riety of ways. Some inherit
farmland when their husbands
die..Others assume manage-,
ment of the farm when their


the management of her fami-
ly's 17,000-acre cattle ranch
in Sarasota County when her
husband, Mabry, died in a
plane crash in 1989.
"At that time, I had been on
the ranch for 28 years, and it
really surprised me that peo-
ple wondered if I would stay,"
she says. "Why would they
think I wouldn't have the abil-
ity or that I wouldn't want to
keep doing the same thing that
I had done for all those
years?"
Mabry Carlton served on
the Sarasota County Commis-
sion for nine years before his
death, and the job often took
him away from the ranch.
While he was away, Barbara
Carlton was the one running
things.
"I think of those nine years
as my training period," she
says.
Yet, despite her many years
of experience, it was difficult
to convince some people to
take her seriously. It was
tough to get them to see her as
the person in charge of the
sprawling ranch, the largest
private land holding in Sara-
sota County.
"People I dealt with had
their 'doubts about me as a
rancher," Carlton says. "Sev-
eral people would say, 'Well,
could you have your foreman
call me?' Or, 'Do you have a
son?' No; I don't have a son."
Carlton seems more amused
than bothered by the mtiscon-
ceptions. Like many female
farmers, she's inclined to
laugh off gender stereotypes
:ajiiei than let them get in her
way.


"Of course there are still bi-
ases out there," says'Dr. Mari-
on Aller, director of the Divi-
;sion of Food Safety for the
Florida Department of Agri-


spouSe isj rc to find 'i f- ciltuire a id C'.nsiiumei iSei-
I fl'i ewfl'O I \ii. L ",'e iU' tiisC' Ce-

retire. times women may be held to a
Barbara Carlton took over higher standard. There are


bastions of the old guard. But
I think women are well aware
of these attitudes and they
know how to handle them.
They can get past them and
move on." .
"Women don't want special
treatment" says Terry Rhodes,
Chief of staff for Florida Agri-
culture Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson. "They want to be
seen as farmers, not as
'women farmers.' They don't
want gender issues to interfere
with the important work at
hand: growing food, growing
their businesses, keeping the
farm. It's about farming, not
about being a woman."
Indeed, many of the women
interviewed for this article
stressed the supportiveness of
their male colleagues.
"When my husband died in
1980, I was a mother; I wasn't
a farmer," said Teena Borek,'
who farms. 300 acres in Home-
stead. "I had to learn how to
farm, and I couldn't have done
it without the help of my
neighbors, the farmers all
around me. I never ever had a
farmer be negative to me be-
,cause I was a woman. Quite
the opposite; they always
helped me out. 'The farming
community is so close-knit
and supportive, so giving, and
this is a wonderful indiutir, to
work in because of that."
Borek says the problems
she faces are the same ones all
family farmers in Florida run
up against:, low profits, a
shortage of labor, too much
government regulation, unfair
trade, soaring, land values and
mounting pressure from de-
velopers.
"Fanning isn't hard for me
because I'm a woman," Borek
insists. "It's hard for every
small or medium-sized farmer.
With all the new rules and reg-
uliatons, fianiil\ f'i trrIl'simpl-'
c.m'1 l.,eep Ll niaik
it. There ,'fe lotyi'cleron [ot
of obstacles.' I, wouldn't be in
this business anymore if I did-
n't have two sons who would


like to remain in it. I don't
think farmers are appreciat-
ed."
Dr. Cynthia Connolly, who
owns and operates Ladybird
Organics, a 50-acre organic
farm in Monticello,.says part
of the problem is the absence
of a national support program
for small and medium-sized
farms. During the 17 years she
has been running Ladybird
Organics, she has often been
forced to supplement her in-
come with off-farm jobs sim-
ply to make ends meet. "There
is no government policy that
buoys us," she says. "Small
farmers have no retirement or
health care benefits, and food
prices are so low that it's very
difficult for us to make a liv-
ing. As a result, small farmers
are a very endangered group."
Betty. O'Toole, owner of
O'Toole's Herb Farm, an or-
ganic herb .farm ,in Madison,
agrees that farming is a tough
business.
"We couldn't make it if my
husband didn't have a ,good
retirement," O'Toole says.
"Farming is hard. .You can
work yourself to death, and
any money -you make goes
back into the farm."
O'Toole worked for years as
an interior designer before
coming back to the 1,000-acre
farm her family has owned
since the' 1840s. Her father
and grandfather grew shade
tobacco on the land, but she
and her husband, Jim, chose to
focus on, herbs, which they
raise on five acres. They start-
ed out selling fresh-cut herbs
to area restaurants, but today.
they are in the live plant busi-
ness. They have two green-'
houses full of organically
grown potted herbs and but-
terfly-friendly perennials;
they sell wholesale to area
nurseries during the first half
6of'the wek and are open o re-
tail cust6omers oi Tliursdaa)',
Friday and Saturdays.
"I didn't know I was a
farmer at heart until I was in
my 30s,". O'Toole says.
"When I was young, girls did-
n't go into agriculture. It was
unheard of. I became an interi-
or designer because, it was.,an
acceptable occupation for a
woman, but I think what I re-
ally wanted to be was a land-
scape designer."
O'Toole's flair for design is
apparent throughout her farm.
There are elaborate demon-
stration gardens aflutter with
butterflies and birds; the lush,
fragrant flow of flowers and
greenery is punctuated here
and there by arches and
benches and birdhouses. She
and Jim moved two tin-roofed
Cracker houses to the property
to serve as a gift shop and an
art gallery; the shady,porches
are laden with interesting bas-
kets, terra cotta pots, and folk


art.
Jim O'Toole is quick to give
his wife credit for the farm's
unique and inviting atmos-
phere. "Betty has such an eye
for these things," he says.
"What we're really doing now
is agri-tourism, because we've
found that people just like -to
be here. And why not? The
farm is quaint. It's cute. It
smells good and feels good,
and it makes you feel good.
We have garden clubs come in
and just spend the day. They
work in the demonstration
gardens. Sometimes they have
lunch. They buy some herbs.
Being at the farm makes peo-
ple happy."
Betty adds, "We've come
up with some pretty creative
ways to bring people here. We
have weddings and receptions
here-anything we can think
of." .
Creativity is a quality that
women farmers seem to pos-
sess in abundance. It's the spe-
cial something they bring to
this' once tradition-bound,
male-dominated industry.
"This is; ai exciting time in
agriculture," says Melissa'
Joiner,, president of Florida
Agri-Women, a women-only
non-profit that promotes agri-
culture in the Sunshine State.
"In the past, women have tak-
en the 'supportive' role in the
industry. But as more women
become heads of businesses,
become leaders-there is a con-
stant stream of new ideas. We'
bring a fresh perspective."'
Women aren't afraid to
think outside the box, Joiner
says, or to challenge conven-
tional growing methods and
marketing techniques.
"Maybe it's because we're
coming from the outside," she
says.
It's not surprising then that
women are a. driving force. in
.iierijo e anrd sustainable
agriculIture. rudiei's suggest
that women are more likely
than men to farm organically
and on small acreages; they
are also more likely to farm
part time and without the help
of large, expensive equipment.
"I'm a child of the 60s,"
Betty O'Toole says. "I always
knew that if I farmed, I would
farm organically. To me, it just
makes sense, to nourish the
soil, to live in balance with na-
ture. It's just a wonderful phi-,
losophy of life.'?
Farming without chemicals
is good for the planet and
good' for business. Cynthia
Connolly says customers seek
her out because she grows or-
ganically. "It's a great selling
point," she says, "They don't
come to me because I grow
wheatgrass-they come to me
because I grow organic wheat-
grass."
In addition to wheatgrass,
Connolly grows USDA-certi-

fied organic muscadine
grapes, which she sells fresh
and also processes into organ-
ic wines. Visitors are wel-
comed to the farm for wine
tasting and sales and to pick
their own grapes in season.
Connolly also sells, her wines
over the internet and at special
events. In addition, she pro-
duces organic eggs and broil-
ers-and she sells worm cast-
ings for home gardeners to use
as fertilizer.
"The farm is very diversi-
fied," Connolly says, "be-
cause there is sustainability in
multiple income strains, and
also because an organic farm
needs diversity. The different
parts of the farm support each
other. The worms support the
soil; which supports plant life,
which in turn supports animal
life and ultimately human life.
Plant waste and chicken ma-
nure get composted and go
back.into the soil."
By constantly diversifying
her' income stream, Connolly
has been able to keep her farm
going. It's a story often told by
farmers-and by small farmers
in general. Flexibility and cre-
ativity are mandatory if you
want to stay afloat.
Teena' Borek's farm was
once just one of many in
Homestead, but novw it is sur-
rounded 'on all sides by up-
scale housing. Borek is one of
. the last of her kind in the
Homestead area-a family
farmer. She's been able to
keep the farm viable by ad-
justing both its size and the
kinds of crops she grows.
"We were growing toma-
toes, and NAFTA crippled our
farm," Borek says. "We could-
n't compete with the cheap
imports, so we had to find a
niche,, a specialty crop we
could produce and sell with-
out so much competition
nhat-s wy started growing
heirloom tomnjtoes. '
Borek takes special pride in
her heirlooms, which she
grows on five acres. 'he calls
them her "babies."
"Heirloom tomatoes are
your old-style tomiatoe."
lBorek explains. "Your
Brandywines and your Cherq-
kee Purples. They, were
brought to this country by the
various ethnic groups who im-
migrated here, so every vari-
ety is different and special.
Heirloom tomatoes are very
perishable, but they are really
tasty. They come in all differ-
ent colors and shapes and fla-
vors, and their presentation is
absolutely awesome. They're
beautiful even just sliced and
put on a plate. You look at
them and you want to eat
them.'?
'But growing a delicious
high-quality product isn't
enough. To. succeed in small-
scale farming these days you
have to be a' good marketer.
Many small farmers are in-
volved in some form of direct
marketing; they sell their pro-
duce at farmers' markets, for
example, or they offer pro-
duce shares. In such cases, the
farmer's success ultimately
hinges on her ability to build
personal, trusting relation-
ships with her customers.
"With the growing concern
over food safety, more and
more Floridians are looking
for a way to reconnect with
their food source," says Flori-
da Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson. "People
want to know where their food
comes from and how it was
grown, and small farmers can
provide this kind of informa-
tion. They can establish a per-
sonal bond of trust with their
customers, and that is some-
thing that is much in demand


these days."
But establishing this bond-
building these, personal rela-
tionship's-takes time and ef-
fort. It takes work. The 0'-
Tooles spend countless hours
preparing for the workshops,
festivals, and other education-

al events they hold at their
farm, and the fees they charge
barely cover their expenses.
While Betty O'Toole stress-
es the satisfaction she takes in
community outreach, she ad-
mits that keeping the farm
afloat-keeping it in the public
eye-is difficult and time-con-
suming. "I don't think a wimp
could do it," she says.
So, given the difficulties,
why would anyone choose to
be involved in this profes-
sion?
Sandy Dutton, who pro-
duces cut flowers on three
acres near Havana just outside
Tallahassee, says she relishes
the independence her work af-
fords her. She grows zinnias,
gladiolas, and sunflowers,
along with some herbs, sugar-
cane, and a small plot of veg-
etables. She sells her flowers
at local farmers' markets and
wholesale to a few florists; the
vegetables are for her own
use. "I'm my own boss," she
says. "I walk out my door, and
I'm at work."
Another of farming's ap-
peals is the "quality of life"
benefits it offers. It is em-
braced as an opportunity -to
live quietly and peacefully in
nature and to engage in work
that is truly meaningful.
"I always say I'm growing
smiles and food for the soul,"


Dutton says. "When I'm at the
farmers' markets, I really en-
joy visiting with the cus-
tomers. Even if they don't buy
anything, they walk away
with a smile on their face. It's
very rewarding. Every day
I'm surrounded by color. I'm
surrounded by flowers."
It's the intangible benefits
that draw many women to the
farm-and keep them there.
"When I began thinking.
about starting up this busi-
ness, I was looking for a way
to reinvigorate my family's
old farm, and I also wanted to
do something that would give
my husband and me a good
life," Betty O'Toole says.
"And what we've done fulfills
both goals. We have fun here.
We love what we do."
And what advice would she
offer to young women inter-
ested in a career in farming?
"Do your research," O'-
Toole. says. "Talk to people
who are doing what you want
to do. People in the agricul-
ture industry are so giving.
Take advantage of that. Learn
from others. And be prepared
to work really hard."
Since 1985, Florida has rec-
ognized women who have
made outstanding contribu-
tions to the state's agricultural
community through its
Woman of the Year in Agri-
culture Award. Sponsored by
the Florida Department of


Agriculture and Consumer
Services and the Florida State
Fair Authority, the award is
presented during the opening-
day luncheon of the Florida
State Fair in Tampa.
Always a highlight of the
State Fair's kick-off, the an-
nual award ceremony was ex-
panded and enhanced by
Commissioner Bronson after
taking office. Since 2002 the
ceremony has featured the
showing of a documentary
video that details the winner's
agricultural achievements and
life's journey. More than 500
people turn out each year to
experience the event. The next
award will be presented on
Feb. 8, 2007. For more infor-

Florida Farm Bureau applauds



Sens. Nelson and Martinez-


Allen Boyd
Congressman Allen
Boyd (D-North Florida), a
member ofl the House Ap-
propriations Committee,
recently voted in favor of
the-Agriculture Appropri-
ations Act for fiscal year
2007 (HR 5384). In this
legislation, Congressman
Boyd secured $1 million
for the development of
systems to treat dairy and
poultry waste in Suwan-
nee, Dixie and Lafayette
Counties.
The waste treatment
study will allow local.
dairy and poultry farmers
to develop a proposal to
create a solid waste re-
moval and treatment fa-
cility. By planning and
implementing conserva-
tion practices, the waste
management system will


reduce the volume and
nutrient content of ma-
nure from dairy and poul-
try operations in the
Suwannee River basin.
"Waste removal can
present a serious pioblemi
for farmers," said Con-
gressman Boyd. "This
funding helps our dairy
and poultry farmers meet
the environmental stan-
dards in place while also
developing a waste man-
agement system for the
Suwannee River
basin. After working ex-
tensively with local dairy
and poultry farmers, I amn
confident this program
will greatly benefit
Suwannee, Dixie and
Lafayette Counties.."
This program was de-
veloped through the com-
bined efforts of the Natur-
al Resources Conserva-
tion Service (NRCS), the
Suwannee Riker Paitner-
ship, and the Suwannee
River Water Management
District. The goal of the
program is to encourage
conservation, develop-
ment and sound use of
land, water and related re-
sources while allowing


dairy and poultry opera-
tions to remain profitable
industries in the area.
In addition, this legisla-
tion allocates funding for
the North Florida Water-
shed Project to continue
assisting the 45 dairies
and 107 poultry opera-
tion, identified in the pro-
ject region with innova-
tive and cost-effective
methods to curb animal
waste spilling into critical
water reserves. Operating
on a '5-35 cost share basis
with individual farmers,.
each project is catefuUy
designed to prevent
harmful nitrates from en-
tering the fragile water
delivery systems that flow
through the area and
empty into the Gulf of
NMexico.
"The North Florida Wa-
tershed Project is reaching
the homestretch, and I am
very glad it has been a pri-
ority to continue the fund-
ing for this important and
successful project." Boyd
stated. "This program is
fundamental to the agri-
cultural community's ef-
fort to preserve Florida'-
water quality."


The US Senate failed, 57-
41, thiee votes short of the
60 needed, on a cloture mo-
tion to bring up the bill on
repealing the Estate Tax.
Florida Farm Bureau re-
mains committed to achiev-
ing permanent Estate Tax re-
peal and to getting the votes
needed to pass H.I. ,8.
C learl, efforts \\ ill continue
to round up enough votes for
a compromise that would
keep the tax in place on the
wealthiest estates, while re-
ducing the tax rate. Only if
permanent repeal is blocked
and only when a firm alter-
'native is put on the table will
alternative strategies be
evaluated.
"Sens. Nelson and Mar-
tinez have been staunch sup-
porters of full repeal of the
Estate Tax on Florida's farm
families. We' applaud their
continued support with their
vote yesterday in the US
Senate," said Carl B. Loop
Jr., president of Florida
Farm Bureau, the state's
largest general agricultural
organization.
"While we greatly appre-
ciate the support of Senators
Nelson and Martinez for


their recognition that the Es-
tate Tax needs to die, we
were disappointed that legis-
lation to fully and perma-
nently repeal the Estate Tax
will not get a vote this year
in the Senate.
' "The Senate missed an op-
portunity to support family
famers -and natural resource
conservation. Death should
not be a taxable event, and
farm heirs should not have
to sell land, buildings and
equipment to pay 'this unfair
tax, which can be almost
half of the value of the es-
tate," said Loop.
The US' House approved
H.R. 8 in April of 2005. H.R.
8 as passed by the House
strikes the sunset clause in
current law so that when Es-
tate taxes are repealed in
2010, repeal will be perma-
nent. Without congressional
action, Estate taxes will be
reinstated in 2011 with a $1
million per person exemp-
tion and a maximum 55 per-
cent rate. The 57 votes in fa-
vor of full repeal puts the
Senate closer than the last
time the Senate voted on the
issue, in 2002, when estate
tax repeal garnered 54 votes.


"We support permanent
repeal of federal estate tax-
es. Until permanent repeal
can be achieved, the exemp-
tion should he increased to
$10 million and indexed to
inflation. Families own 99
percent of America's farms,
and the Estate Tax is a. threat
to those fanull farms. Re-
pealing the tax is one of
Farm Bureau's top priorities.
We'll keep fighting to en-
sure that farmers and ranch-
ers'can pass on their opera-
tions to their children," said
Loop.
Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest
general-interest agricultural
association with more than
140,000 member-families
statewide. There are Farm
Bureaus representing 64
counties in Florida. Head-
quartered in Gainesville, the
Federation is, an indepen-
dent, non-profit agricultural
organization and is not asso-
ciated with any arm of the
government. More informa-
tion about Florida Farm Bu-
reau is available on the orga-
nization's Web site,

The Division of Forestry


urges caution this


Recent rains in north
Florida may have temporari-
ly reduced the chance 'of
wildfire ignitions from out-
door activities, but rainfall
totals are still well below
normal for this time of year
and the danger of wildfires
still exists. The Division of
Forestry would like to re-
mind those citizens that are
celebrating our nation's
birthday to use extreme cau-
tion with any out door activ-
ity that could be a potential
ignition source for a wild-
fire. This includes camp-
fires, barbecue grills, fire-
works and recreational vehi-
cles such as ATV's.
Dry grasses and pine straw
are the primary carriers of
fire because they dry out
quickly, even when wood-
lands appear to be wet from
recent rainfall. Bright sun
and high temperatures .can
dry out forest vegetation
enough-to ignite within one
hour of a rain. Once the pat-
tern of afternoon thunder-
storms returns, fire condi-
tions will significantly im-


prove, but until then resi-
dents are urged to be cau-
tious. Check with your local
municipality for .profession-
al fireworks exhibits that are
permitted by your town or
city. Local law enforcement,
fire departments or the State
Fire Marshal's, Office can
provide guidance on legal
fireworks and appropriate
safety precautions.
Florida has experienced an
active wildfire season so far
in 2006 with 3,396 wildfires
burning 197,310 acres


July 4th
statewide from Jan. 1
through June 26. In an aver-
age year, the state will battle
about 5,000 wildfires burn-
ing 200,000 acres. Florida
has nearly met the average
annual acres burned and the
year is only half over. The
2006 wildfire totals to date
in north Florida include: 150
fires burning 552 acres
around Perry, 206 wildfires
burning 1,168 in the Lake
City area, and 127 wildfires
burning 1,050 around Jack-
sonville.

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 call 'during
major storms, and it has dramatically
increased the number of incoming
telephone lines for its outage-
reporting system. But customers may .7
experience busy signals and longer- C/ ,j
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 arid
alternative power source for emergencies.
* If rising water threatens your home, turn off the power at the
circuit breaker panel or fuse box before water enters your home.
Have an electrician Inspect your system before turning the power
back on after flooding.
*.Never replace a fuse or touch a circuit breaker with wet hands, or
while standing on a wet or damp surface.
* If you see a downed power line, call SVEC to report its location.
* Avoid driving over downed power lines. Avoid puddles near
downed power lines.
Plug only Individual appliances Into portable generators. Never
connect a generator to wall outlets, building wiring or your home's
electrical system.
If you require transportation assistance during an evacuation,
regIster In advance with the Civil Defense and Office of Emergency
Management In your county.


I
*To prepare for outages, it is wise to have plenty of fresh batteries
for flashlights and radios.'
* 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 a wall outlet of your home or building's
electrical system since that cancause damage to your equipment
and can be a life-threatening danger to your family, neighbors and
repair crews. Be sure to have adequate fuel for your generator and
manage consumption by running it for only a few hours at a time.
* Prepare a list of essential items you would need 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
automatic equipment time to restore power.
Listen to your local radio and TV stations for
weather updates and Information from SVEC.

Growing your own organic





food feeds many needs


(ARA) More and more
U.S. consumers are buying
organic produce. In fact, in
2000, shoppers spent $7.8
billion on organic food and
the numbers keep growing.
Those who are willing to spend
the extra money buying
organic do so fora number of
reasons, from avoiding
pesticide residues in their food
to appreciating the better flavor
and texture -of organically
grown food. If you're reading
this and thinking "I already
knew all that, that's why I buy
organic," then perhaps you've
already taken the next logical
step growing your own
organic food.
Organic produce has become
more readily available in recent
years, so you don't have to
grow your own; but there is
something magical about
putting food that came from
your garden on the table for
your family. "Growing your
own food really puts you in
touch with your food source,"
says Glenda Lehman Ervin of
Lehman's, a company
specializing in old-fashioned,
high-quality merchandise. By
cooking with fresh produce,
you can avoid using a lot of
chemical-laden processed
foods lacking in nutrients.
Growing an organic garden
will take some thought,
preparation and care, but isn't
that what gardening is all
about? It will also give you an,
excuse to spend time outdoors,
get your hands dirty and get a
tecI tfor rhe soil. "-Organic


gardening is all about working
in harmony with nature," says
Lehman Ervin.
If you're new to organic
growing, you'll need a good
source of advice and
information. Lehman Ervin
recommends Straight-Ahead
Organic, a step-by-step guide
to growing great vegetables by
Sheperd Ogden. It includes
information on designing your
Sgaden; improving the soil;
tools and equipment; seeds and
seedlings; and planting and
cultivation. Another favorite is
This Organic Life, Confessions
of a Suburban Homesteader,
*by Joan Dey Gussow. -"It is
part recipe book, part
autobiography and part
memoir," says Lehman Ervin.
It is a gardening book for those
who want to grow their own
food but don't want to read
another "how-to" book.
Armed with your new-found
knowledge, you'll need to set
to work improving your soil.
Adding organic matter to your
soil improves its ability to hold
water, improves the structure
of the soil and adds valuable
nutrients. You can find organic
fertilizers to jump-start your
soil, or use compost you make
yourself. Simply add grass
clippings, leaves and kitchen
scraps to a compost bin and let
nature do the rest. You can use
a simple home-made compost
bin, or opt for a kit that you
assemble; tumbling compost
bins spin for easy aeration of
the, compost. Lehman's also
offers a selection ofhand\


compost accessories, such as a
compost thermometer and an
aerator.
Chances are if you're
gardening organically, you'll
want to protect the
environment by avoiding gas-"
pow ered gardening tools hiat


spew noxious fumes. Lehman's
offers a wide range of human-
powered digging and
cultivating tools, including a
broadfork to break up
compacted soil and push
cultivators to help keep your
soil in top condition. The
cultivators ramrn in fertilizers,
root out weeds, make furrows
and break up the soil, letting in
vital moisture and air. These
implements are authelilc and
highly effective. Since well
tended soil is the first step in
growing a healthy garden, it
makes sense to prepare it
thoroughly.
Before you lay out your
garden, you'll want to consider
where, what and how to plant.
For example, you'll want to
rotate your crops from year to
year so you don't deplete all
the nutrients from the soil;
think about planting cover
crops in the fall, which will
help renew the soil for spring
planting; and look for seeds
that are not genetically
modified. Get a jump on the
growing season with garden
tunnels or portable
greenhouses that warm the soil
and protect tender young
plants, allowing you to get
your crops in earlier in the
season.
Once the seeds are in the
ground, you'll need to protect
them from garden pests.
Gardening organically means
using tried-and-true pest
control methods such as '
building a bat house in your
yard to encourage bug-eating
bats to visit your garden.
Companion planting is another
low-maintenance way to
combat pests. For example,
some gardeners swear that
using marigolds as a border
around their vegetable garden
helps repel pests.
When harvest time rolls
around, you'll want to think
about preserving the bounty
that you can't eat right away.
Lehman's has a full range of
canning equipment, food mills,
dehydrators and other kitchen
tools to make it easy to
preserve the fruits and
vegetables of your labor.
Growing your family's food
organically is an act of love,
but it really isn't more difficult
or more expensive than a
traditional vegetable garden.

cooking tools available from
Lehman's; visit

Garage door can be home's weakest link in hurricane hot spot


(ARA) The garage
door is the largest
moving part on your
home and may pose a
major threat to your
property if you live in
a hurricane prone
region. According to
the Federal
Emergency
Management
Association (FEMA),
the loss of a garage
door during a
hurricane can cause an


uncontrolled buildup of
internal pressure resulting
in a blowout of the roof and
supporting walls.
"Code-compliant garage
doors are critical to
preserving a home's
structural integrity during a
hurricane," says Mark
Westerfield, manager of
product development and
engineering for Clopay
Building Products, the
largest U.S. residential
garage door manufacturer.


"Because of their size,
garage doors are more
susceptible to wind damage
than other exterior
openings especially two-
car garage doors. Unless
you have a tested,
hurricane resistant door
installed, high winds can
force it out of the opening."
With an active hurricane
season in the forecast,
coastal and vacation
homeowners are being
encouraged to make sure


S EI

L .P .E.I


their property meets
updated building code
requirements for wind-
resistance to help minimize
damage and loss in the
event of a storm. To meet
the International Building
Code, garage doors must
have additional bracing,
heavier gauge tracking and
other necessary hardware
to help keep them in place
under extreme winds.
The more stringent
building codes were put to
the test during the last two
record-breaking hurricane
seasons. Houses that
conformed were better able
to withstand the onslaught
of back-to- back storms,
while many that had garage
doors installed before the
revised code took effect
suffered significant
damage, or the doors were
-blown out completely.
"Homeowners with an
older garage door may not
even realize that it poses a
threat," Westerfield adds.
"A reinforced door is a
small investment that can
minimize major damage
and property loss. And, if
your door has weathered a
previous hurricane, it needs
to be inspected for hidden
damage or vulnerabilities."
He offers these tips on
what to look for when
selecting a hurricane
reinforced garage door:
Determine the wind
load requirements for your
geographic region and
make sure your garage
door meets them. The local
building code authority can
provide code information
and a professional garage
door technician can
perform an on-site
inspection.
Understand "storm
ready" vs. "add-on"
reinforcement. Two kinds
of reinforced garage doors
are available. With the
"add-on" system, a
homeowner has to install
long posts in the floor and
ceiling to reinforce the door
before the storm hits, and
then remove them again
afterwards to resume
normal operation.
"Storm-ready" models
require no advance set-up.
Reinforcement is built into
the structure of the door
and is engaged by simply
locking it, a timesaving
convenience in the event of
a sudden evacuation notice.
This type of door is
particularly beneficial to
vacation home and rental
property owners because
they have peace of mind
knowing that the garage
door is secure as long as it's
locked.
The FEMA Mitigation
Assessment Team
expressed concern about
the poor performance of
garage doors that were
reinforced with an add-on
system in its 2005 report on
Hurricane Charley. Several
homes did not have the
posts installed at the time of
the hurricane, which lead to
structural damage from
wind pressure.
Choose a door that has
heavy-duty rollers, hinges,
springs and track to
provide additional strength


and help keep the door in
place.
Retrofitting an older
door with new hardware
will not provide the
structural support needed
for the current building
codes. It is important to
have a trained garage door
professional install the
appropriate door for your
area.
