The holiday weekend
turned to tragedy for one
as yet unidentified pedes-
trian who was struck and
killed by a car on Inter-
state 10 early July 1.
The fatality is the fourth
within the last 30 days in
Suwannee County, with an
additional death when a
tractor mower fell on a
farm orker..
According td the Florida
Highway Patrol, the man
was walking in the outside


travel lane of I-10 at about
2:55 a.m. Saturday morn-
ing near the eastbound on-
ramp at CR 137. FHP said
David Kicker, 56, of Rep-
ton, Ala., was eastbound
when he saw the man
walking in his lane and
slammed on brakes. How-
.ever, Kicker's 2002 Buick
struck the man, throwing
him onto the hood of the
car and striking the wind-
shield. The pedestrian then
came to a rest on the inside
travel lane while the Buick
stopped on the inside
emergency lane, FHP.said.

Staff and supporters of
Haven Hospice Care Center
being constructed near Lake
City put.a little love into the
walls of the facility June 20.
Participants at a "stud sign-

thoughts onto the inside of the
walls memorializing passed
loved ones and others.
Florida State Rep. Dwight
Stansel spoke at the event
about the importance of hav-
ing a care center in the
Suwannee Valley area.
"This is a prime example of

the ceremony, the center is
about halfway completed and
the $3 million financial goal is
met by two-thirds.
At the end of the ceremony
participants were handed pens
as they wandered around
looking for a place to pen
their thoughts on support
beams. Some signed certain
areas of the building that were
meaningful, such as the chapel
area. Others signed areas
where their funds helped con-
tribute.
Carol Johnson, of Lake
City, memorialized her mother
and brother.
"Hospice was there for our
family," she said while writing
a message in the chapel area.
"God bless granny," was the
message Ty Williams was
writing for his grandmother.
His mother, Peggy Williams,
said, "Hospice took good care
of her."

Haven Hospice, Natasha

BLT Quiz Answer true
or false to each question
below:
I often eat other peo-
ple's leftovers,
True False
I eat snacks out ofthe
bag instead of putting one
portion in a bowl.
True False
I like to sample items
from stores.
True False
My pantry is stocked
with crackers, cookies,
chips and other foods
high in fat and/or sugar.
True False
My office has bowls of
candies just waiting for
the taking.
True False
I don't really eat a lot
of fruits or vegetables on a
regular basis.
True False
If you answered true to
one of more of these ques-
tions, you may be con-
suming more calories than
your body needs. This can
result in excess body fat.
The bites, licks and
tastes are all the hidden
foods we put in our
mouths throughout the
day when we are really
not that hungry. Some ex-
amples are:
Standing at the refrig-.
erator and grabbing a
piece of cheese
Going to the pantry
and eating cookies and
crackers
Eating chi's out of the
bag while watching TV or
sitting at the computer

Sampling baked
goods and deli treats at
the grocery store
Eating leftovers in-
stead of saving them for
another meal
Sampling while cook-
ing and baking
Finishing out the ice
cream in the bottom of the
container after eating a

Stopping at the desk

lates and taking a hand-

All these behaviors are
sabotage for losing
weight.
One woman consumed
1,365 extra calories this
way, not. including regu-
lar meals. She ate every-,
body's leftovers, includ-
ing pizza crusts from her
family and her kids'
French fries.
Another lady ate half a
bag of potato chips during
the day because she left
the bag open in the pantry
and consumed a handful
every time she passed.
Bottom Line
Snacking on the wrong
kinds of foods, especially
when you are not hungry,
is not a good idea. Here
are better behaviors:
Eat a good breakfast
every day this should
consist of whole grain ce-
real with skim milk and
fruit.
Snack -on plenty of
fruits and vegetables in-
stead of chips and crack-
ers.
Eat a diet higher in
fiber and lower in fat and
refined foods so you feel
more full on fewer calo-
ries.
Keep track of what
you eat and be aware of
BLT temptations!!

Zhe 9DowlingMouse/ race Maftor


In 1995, Tracy An-
drews Forest made
contact with the own-
er of tax record in an
attempt to salvage
some items from the
Dowling House pure-
ly for sentimental rea-
sons. Surprisingly,
the owner offered to
give her the house if it
would be restored!
Thus started the
process for a much
larger project...a pro-
ject that had been en-
visioned by a core
group of individuals
since 1989, including
Tracy, Angel Robin-
son Dean, Chris Mus-
grove and Lori Robin-
son Evans. These indi-
viduals put their
dreams together and
put their faith into
"A.C.T.ion" literal-
ly!
But first, a bit of his-
tory.
Thomas Dowling, a
railroad man himself,
was one of Live Oak's
most prominent citi-
zens in its early de-
velopment. In 1908,
after building the
Live Oak, Perry, and
Gulf Railroad (popu-
larly known as the
Loping Gopher) to.
serve his sawmill and

later freight and pas-
senger traffic, Dowl-
ing moved his lumber
mill to the west side,
of the county. It was
one of the two largest
sawmills in Florida.
The community that
eventually grew up
around it became
Dowling Park. In
1913, his minister,
Burr Bixler, persuad-
ed him to donate a
large tract of land on
the river where he
could establish an or-
phanage and a home
for "old and worn out
ministers and mis-
sionaries." Begun on
December 17, 1913,
the Advent Christian
Village was Florida's
first retirement center
and one of the most
progressive retire-
ment villages in the
state. Dowling also
began Live Oak's first
waterworks, cut pure-
ly from his own re-
sources. The original
75,000 gallon tank
constructed by Dowl-
ing ,in 1897 is quite
possibly the oldest
water tank in the na-
tion still in use. He
was also probably the
first, person in Flori-
da, and certainly in
Live Oak, known to
have owned an auto-
mobile. On the first

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

.Q: What's good treatment for a burn in the
mouth?.
A. A burn inside the mouth, from, say a
hot piece of, pizza or that first spoonful of
piping hot soup, can be painful and
annoying. Usually, though, it's not serious
because tissue in the mouth has amazing
recuperative power. The first thing is to get
ice or ice water on the burn to ease the
pain and minimize tissue damage. The.
sooner you get ice or cold liquid on the
spot, the less damage you'll have. The
next day, starting rinsing the mouth gently
with a half-teaspoon of table salt dissolved
in warm water. Rinse four or five times
daily for a few days and the area should
heal nicely. Of course the best way to treat
the problem is to avoid it. Be patient when
eating and make sure food and beverages
are cool enough to not pose a problem.
Talk with your dentist about items you
should keep in the house by way of a
dental first-aid kit. There are steps you can
take to minimize discomfort and damage,
as in the case of a burn. You should know
what they are and your dentist will be able
to tell you.

day Dowling drove
his new Toledo
Streamer through the
streets of the quiet
rural town, he caused
such a stir that Sam
McGinniss, a janitor
at the Suwannee Demo-
crat building, thought
that the devil had
come to get him, 'fell
to his knees in the
street, and prayed! To

historical figures in
Live Oak go to:

tory.html
Dowling's primary
home in Live Oak still
stands ,today along
Duval Street now
known as Grace
Manor. According to
the best records avail-
able, the house was
built in 1896 by work-
ers from his lumber
company. The wrap-
around porch with its
two-story columns
was added soon after
the original construc-
tion giving the house
its neoclassical fea-
tures which distin-
guish it even today.
The house stayed in
the family until the
1950s, but when all
Dowlings moved,
away from the area,
the house fell into dis-
repair. It was then ac-
quired by Mr. and
Mrs. J. D. Bailey from
North Carolina, who.
.moved to Suwannee
County because of the
tobacco trade. They
took great pride in
bringing the home
and its gardens back
to their earlier states
of grandeur. When
they retired back to
North Carolina, the
Baileys asked Fred
and Flora Andrews
with their daughter,
Tracy, to live in the
home, which they did
for eight years. After
the Andrews moved
and the Baileys sold
the home in the late
1970s, it was used for
a time as an assisted

In an effort to provide timely infor-
mation to enable analysts and in-
vestors to stay better informed about
the general trends in our major busi-
ness segments, we are releasing se-
lected operating statistics. Due to the
limited nature of this data, a consis-
tent correlation to earnings should
not be assumed.
"The choppy,. downward-trending
equity markets during most of May
led to a decline for the month in total
client assets and assets under discre-
tionary management," explained
Chief Financial Officer Jeffrey P.
Julien. "However, our operating sta-
tistics continue to reflect strong im-
provement over the prior year."

versified holding company providing

4,800 financial advisors serving 1.2

GUEST EDITORIAL

By Marty Justis, The Citizens Flag Alliance,
Inc.,
www.cfa-inc.org
By judicial decree in 1989, the US
Supreme Court amended the United
States by inserting flag burning into the
Bill of Rights. That decision took from the
American people a fundamental right that
had been exercised from our beginning as
a Nation-the right to protect our flag.
Those who support flag protection do
not believe that a "right" to burn the
American flag is a legacy of the freedoms
bestowed upon us by the architects of our
Constitution.
Justice Hugo Black, a First Amendment
absolutist, spoke for our cause when he
said, "It passes my belief that anything in
the Federal Constitution bars ... making
the deliberate burning of the American
flag an offense."
In congressional testimony in support of
the amendment, baseball great Tommy
Lasorda spoke for the common American
when he said, "Speech is when you talk."
The necessity and legitimacy of our
cause is beyond doubt, and so is the sup-
port. The legislatures of all 50 states back
this effort, as do three of four Americans
and some 70 percent of the US Congress.
Only a handful of US Senators stand be-
tween the people and the return of legal
protection for the flag.
It is important to note that flag burners
are not our primary concern. The problem
is with those who call flag burning
"speech." That is a distortion of our Con-
stitution. Speech is the persuading power
that moves people to the ballot box, and
those elected to the will of the people.
Flag burning is the persuading power of
mobs.
S But legalized flag burning goes beyond
distortion of the Constitution. It also des-
ecrates our values as a nation. Burning the
flag is wrong, but what it teaches is
worse. It teaches that the outrageous con-
duct of a minority is more important than
the will of the majority. It teaches that our
laws need not reflect our value, and
teaches disrespect for the values embed-
ded in a Constitution that is embodied by
the flag.

At times there are little morsels
of human kindness and integrity
stuck in voluminous news files
that too often are dominated by
pain, suffering and greed. I found
one that I think should be brought
to everyone's attention.
'* It won't win a Pulitzer but it
,. could be good for group therapy.
S '*.. ,And because it happened in Cali-*
Dwain Walden fornia, I have a chance to say
something good about that state,
given that I've been kind of hard on it in past commen-
taries.
In Santa Ana, a homeless man found a wallet in a
garbage can. He returned it to its rightful owner, who
was quite surprised to find that it still contained $900 in
cash and her credit cards.
Kim Bogue said she had prayed all night that the wal-
let would be found. She had saved the money for a trip
to her native Thailand.
Bogue gave the homeless man, who wouldn't give his
name, a $100 reward.
Now we could do a lot of reading between the lines
here. This woman prayed all night that her money
would be returned. And a person, who would not give
his name, did just that.
So, was this homeless man sent by God? Was he an an-
gel?
Other questions that might be asked: Why didn't he"
see his discovery as a gift from God for his own use? Has'
he found that "one thing" that cowboy Curly, in the
movie "City Slickers," said we must find?
Or, could he have been a former Enron executive who
didn't get indicted but who is trying to set things
straight with God?.
Perhaps he is only a homeless person by night and
during the day he's a congressman. At night he lives
among the street people in an effort to better understand
poverty. Oops! I guess I'm getting a little carried away

U.S. SENATOR ME
1) Martinez: Demise of death tax long overdue
Sen. Martinez voted in favor of moving to permanent-
ly repeal the estate tax, calling it unfair, onerous, and
anti-growth for the US economy. By a vote of 57 to 41, the
Senate was.blocked procedurally from moving to a final
vote to repeal the tax. Removing the procedural hurdle
required 60 votes. ,
"This is an unfair tax and a disincentive to entrepre--
neurs who want to pass their family-owned businesses
on to the next generation," said Sen. Martinez. "It's long
overdue that we give people certainty about the fate of
the death tax and my preference is that we repeal it per-
manently. As it stands after today's vote, this tax will be
fully reinstated in 2011."
2) Sen. Martinez: Death of al-Zarqawi is progress in
global War on terror
Sen. Martinez hailed the US and Coalition forces for
tracking down and eliminating the top al Qaeda terrorist
in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
"Al-Zarqawi was the face of evil in Iraq. He master-
minded and incited the deaths of US soldiers, citizens,
and thousands of Iraqis," said Sen. Martinez. "The con-
clusion of this operation is a credit to the US Coalition
strategy of building an intelligence network, keeping to
a tactical and operational approach, and emphasizing
presence and perseverance. This day can be counted as
significant progress in the global war on terror."
3) Arbitrary deadlines threaten to hinder progress
in Iraq
Sen. Martinez issued the following statement in re-
gards to attempts by Senate Democrats to set arbitrary
deadlines for US troop withdrawal. The senator said pre-
mature troop departure would be "a major setback in the
global war on terror."
"An attitude of defeatism does not constitute a strate-
gy for victory. We cannot and will not be defeated mili-
tarily. The only way we will be defeated is by our own
lack of resolve. If we had listened to detractors who told
us to cut and run, al Qaeda terrorist Abu Musab al-Zar-
qawi would be alive and planning his next killing and
the future of a radical caliphate in Iraq.
5) Senate approves funding critical to war on terror,
hurricane recovery, border security
Sen. Martinez voted in favor of the fiscal year (FY) 2006
Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for De-
fense, the Global War on Terror, and Hurricane Recov-
ery. The $94.5 billion dollar measure also includes near-
ly $2 billion dollars for strengthening border security.
The measure passed the Senate (98-1) and will now pro-
ceed to the White House for President Bush's signature.
Hurricane relief included in the measure totals $19.8
billion and will fund Community Development Block
Grants, Education Relief for displaced students, FEMA's
Disaster Relief program, and assistance to small busi-
nesses. The measure includes assistance targeted.at Flori-
da's agricultural industries including $40 million for pro-
ducers and processors of sugarcane, and $95 million
available for specialty crop and nursery crop assistance.


"Agricultural assistance is essential to hurricane relief.
Included in the bill is a program that will be available to
assist a great number of Florida farmers including pro-
ducers of specialty crops," Sen. Martinez said noting
Florida suffered more than $2 billion in damages from
the 2005 hurricanes. "This is relief Florida's congression-

here!
He might be a philosophy student from the 1960s, and
he's still struggling with the question: Who am I, and
what am I doing here?
There are lots of reasons why this fellow might want to
stay anonymous, otherwise he might wind up on the
Larry King Show where he would be asked :questions
about his mama, his political affiliation, his religion and
his sexual orientation. (I wonder if people in the Orient
get tired of that phraseology?)
And then Bill O'Reilly would want to interrogate him
from his Fox network pulpit where he would insist that
this;guy is a disguised bleeding heart liberal just waiting
to break out of his cardboard box and run for governor
of California thus, the missing wallet and kindness
gesture was a fraud and probably was staged to benefit
his campaign.
But more than likely, the homeless man is just a good
person with a conscious. He wanted to sleep well at
night, even if it was in a cardboard box.
Now probably a lot of people already have asked
themselves, what would I have done in this instance?
Would I have taken a finder's fee off the top? Would I
have looked around to see if anyone was looking, then
took the cash and discarded the rest? What would Jesus
do? What would Ken Lay do?
Maybe God sent us this incident as a test. Or given all
the greed and fraud that has dominated our political and
business landscape in recent months, maybe God sent us
an example of honesty and integrity just in case we have
forgotten.
Or maybe this was God's way of saying that there's
too much crap on television and the networks should
bring back "Walton's Mountain," which brought us
themes of honesty, integrity, deep soul searching and
other condiments of non-complexity and human decen-
cy. What do you think the odds are that the homeless
man's name was John Boy?

agency physicians who
witness first-hand the
tragic consequences of
driving without safety
belts, following release
of a new report from the
National Highway Traf-
fic Safety Administra-
tion that 48 million
Americans still do not
wear safety belts.
"Every hour someone
in America dies simply
because they were not
wearing a safety belt,"
said Dr. Mary Patricia
McKay, chair of the
Trauma Care and Injury
Control Committee of
the American College of
Emergency Physicians,
(ACEP) and an emer-
gency, physician at The
George Washington
University Hospital in
Washington, D.C. "Fail-
ure to buckle up con-
tributes to more fatali-
ties than any other sin-
gle behavior except
drunk driving. The ma-
jority of all injuries and.
.deaths from traffic
crashes are pre-
ventable."
Dr. McKay said be-
sides putting them-
selves at risk for serious
injury or death, safety
belt scofflaws drain as
much as $50 billion
from society annually in
medical care, lost pro-
ductivity and other
costs. Crash victims
who did not wear safety
belts cost hospitals 55
percent more than those
who did wear safety


belts. The net cost of
these crashes is approxi-
mately $580 per Ameri-
can per year.
Safety. belt use is sig-
nificantly higher in
states with primary en-
'forcement of safety belt
laws-those that allow
police to pull a vehicle
over simply for an occu-
pant's failure to use a
belt, just like every oth-
er traffic violation-
which is why ACEP ad-
vocates for adoption
and enforcement of pri-
mary safety belt laws.
But laws alone are not
enough: parents must
lead the way with their
own model behavior.
S*Adndltts Y-'Wh116 make
,safety belt 'use a habit'
set a critical example for
children who ride with
them. When a driver
does not buckle up, 76
percent of the time the
children riding with
them are not buckled up
either. Motor vehicle
crashes are the leading
cause of death for
American children, ado-
lescents, and young
adults. The human cost
is incalculable, but the
economic price is also
very high: The annual
cost of motor vehicle oc-
cupant-related death
and injury exceeds $25.8
billion for children ages
14 and under. All chil-
dren must be restrained
in a car in an age-appro-
priate manner.

forgetting
and the ir-
s rational
fear of be-
i n g
trapped
inside the
car. Some
adults car-
ry the false
impression that safety
belts are unnecessary if
they ride in the backseat
or travel only a short
distance; others fear
wrinkling their clothes.
"The benefits of wear-
ing a safety belt cannot
be overstated in the
event of a crash," said
Dr. McKay. "Some of
the worst injuries are
sustained by unbelted
occupants who are eject-
ed from the vehicle onto
asphalt, or into a tree.,
As emergency physi-
cians, we see pain and
suffering every day,
much of it unavoidable.
The most heartbreaking
injuries and deaths are
the,Qnes thata. would have
been so easily prevent-
ed. Safety belts save
lives-please use them!"
The bottom line: Buck-
le up, every trip, every
time, everybody! The
life you save could be
your own.

first time. The porch was named "The Bailey Porch" because they enjoyed the porch so much
throughout the years of their tenure there. J.D. Bailey was a tobacco warehouse man. The couple
lived in North Carolina fall and winter and would come to Live Oak in the spring. They obtained the
Dowling house in the late 50s and sold it in the 70s when Mr. Bailey passed away:

65-12 win over Newberry Is an
all time scoring record,
In January of 1937, an all-time
All-Suwanntee team was picked by
Loule C, Wadsworth, the only one
that has ever been selected.
Members of the team were--
Left End Sherrod Bird, Left Tac-

Guard Green Howard, Right Tac-
kle Mutt Lanter, Right End Earl
Duncan, Quarterback Frank Had-

changes in that team today.
It was also in 1937 that Jimmy
Nelson was named an All-South-
ern back. The team won nine
and lost one with Nelson and
Marvin Jones serving as co-cap-
tarina,
Thirty-eight marked the entry
of the Bulldogs into the rugged
NRE Conference. Billy Hunter
was captain of that team which
won four, lost five, and tied one.
The great. '39 'team roared
through nine straight--to take
the NEC crown. They scored 321
points that season which still re-
maihs an all time season record.

final game when the title was won in a 7-6 thriller over Lake City, considered the most exciting
game ever played by a Suwannee High Team. Bill Sexton coached the squad.

Fishing Report

June 30, 2006
Trout fishing has been
good this week if you are
fishing with live pinfish un-
der a Cajun Thunder? Folks
trying to catch a limit on
jigs are having a harder go
of it. We did manage to
c. catch' a few nice trout and a
. .bunh oof shorts on Assas-
sifn' tiew Shrimp Cocktail in
the 'Drunk Monkey" and
the tQreen Pumpkin/Gold
Shad, which I have nick-
named Grumplestilskin (you
can figure it out). I am fish-
ing the new Shrimp Cocktail
on a 1/16 oz. spring lock
jighead, also by Assassin. I
am rigging it under a 2.5-
inch Cajun Thunder with a
46-inch leader. I had a 22-
inch trout on the Drunk
Monkey color last Thursday
while fishing with Bill
Gaskin of Valdosta, Ga. We
brought back nine trout and
caught a few short reds on
the Thunder-Spin. I also. "
caught a 19-inch trout on the
Thunder-Spin with a copper
blade.
Phillip and Margo
Chancey of Trenton had 12
trout and two Spanish last
Wednesday, while fishing
live pinfish under Cajuns
with me on their One More
Cast guide service trip. We
fished 4-6 feet of water with
Pilchards and pinfish.

Vietnam Vet and former POW Harry Klein


dies before realizing his dream


Janet Schrader
Democrat Reporter
Harry "Dusty" Klein wanted to go to the National Vet-
erans Wheelchair Games last year. Ie-uldn't go because
he was in the VA Medical Center in Lake City having his
only remaining leg removed. This year, Klein was all
ready to head for Alaska the first of July to compete in the
games, when he died unexpectedly in his home early
Wednesday morning, June 28.
Feisty and full of life, Klein didn't bat an eye when
they told him he had to have his remaining leg amputated.
"Take it off, let me get healed up, give me my other leg
and get out of the way," the 58-year-old Vietnam veteran
told;them.
Using two prosthetic legs and a cane, Klein walked on-
stage as the keynote speaker at a Memorial Day program

of the best ways to do that is-
through dove hunting. And,
with that in mind, it's easy to
see why great dove hunts are
in such high demand and of-
ten difficult to find.
That's why the FWC creat-
ed its special-opportunity
Dove Club Program-to offer
hunters the chance to experi-
^ ence exceptional dove hunting
on the state's best public dove
fields. .
Dove Club permits allow,
'.one adult and one youth (ur-
der age 16) to hunt all sched-


uled dates for the dove field
of their choice. Permits cost
only $150 and enable both
hunters to take a daily bag
limit of birds! There are a total
of eight hunts on all but one
of the selected doe fields,
and all are half-da\ hunts and
take place on Saturdays.
There are eight special-op-
portunity dove fields scattered
throughout the state from as
far west as Pensacola to as far
south as Miami.

to Alaska this July to compete in the National Veterans
Wheelchair Games.
Klein had planned to compete in several events, bowl-
ing, air rifles and table tennis. He'd wanted to compete in
the wheelchair race. But along with the new work on his
amputated leg, Klein suffered a silent heart attack when
he was in the hospital and needed to build back his
strength.
Klein served in the Army and fought in Vietnam. In
Vietnam, Klein was a supply escort, infantryman and re-
connaissance scout behind enemy lines. Klein was a
POW for 18 months.
"I was at what they nicknamed the Hanoi Hilton," says
Klein, who served with the 101st Airborne Division. "I

teered at the VA medical cen-

Klein lived near Dowling
Park on several acres where
he was raising thorough-
breds. Klein had 13 horses,
three of them well-bred
brood mares he bought from
local thoroughbred man
Curly Taylor.
"These girls have top-of-
the-line papers," Klein boast-
ed with pride. "They are out
of Sagittarius and First Pre-
tense." Klein said his goal
was to teach riding to chil-
dren with disabilities and
special needs&
Klein said the more he
shared his blessings with
others, the more he was
blessed. When he lost his
second leg, he visited 20 to
25 patients a day at the VA
medical center, rolling the
halls of the hospital in.his
wheelchair. By the time he
left the hospital eight months
later, he was able to walk


from room to room.
"Because of great therapy '
and determination, I am actu-
ally walking," he said. "I am
now walking with the use of
a cane, and by July 4, I will
walk with nothing except
myself and the grace of
God."
Klein had good advice for
those with disabilities:
"Don't listen to any people
who have negativity. Do
what you feel is right, and
never give up because any-
thing is possible. Believe me,
I know."
"This is so sad," said Vet-
eran's Medical Center
spokesperson Mary Kay
Hollingsworth. "He was truly
an inspiration to our patients
and our employees. He was
positive-minded and wanted
to make a difference to both
veterans and disabled chil-
dren through his horse farm.
He will be missed tremen-
dously by the VA family."

properties were under heavy
pressure to lease their lands to
private individuals for hunting
clubs. These clubs were will-
ing to pay a lot more money
for use of the properties, so the
FWC created the Recreational
Use Program as a way to en-
courage landowners by provid-
ing more revenue to them, al-
lowing these 10 properties to
stay open to public hunting.
These select WMAs are in
the northern half of the state,
where demand for premium
hunting land is high.
The areas are: Blue Water
Creek (Escambia County),
Robert Brent (Gadsden and
'Liberty counties), Flint Rock
(Jefferson and Wakulla coun-
ties), San Pedro Bay (Madison
and Taylor counties), Nassau


(Nassau County), Grove Park
(Alachua County), Gulf Ham-
mock (Levy County), Twelve
Mile Swamp (St. Johns Coun-
ty), Relay (Flagler County) and
Ft. McCoy (Marion County).
A recreational use pen-rmnit al-
lows the permit holder and one
dependent child (under age 17)
to hunt, fish and use the prop-
erty for other recreational ac-
tivities. With the exception of
hunting, the permit holder's
spouse and other dependent
children also can fish and use
the property for recreational
purposes as well. These per-
mits provide great opportuni-
ties for families to enjoy the
great outdoors together with
activities such as camping, hik-
ing, horseback riding, ATV rid-
ing and wildlife viewing.


Get hold of a 2006-2007
Recreational Use Permit Work-

Worksheets may be submit-

Making cents out of your investments


If you're new to invest-
ing, the thought of putting
.your hard-earned cash
into stocks, bonds or mu-
tual funds can be intimi-
dating. But with a new,
free package of publica-
tions from the US Securi-
ties and Exchange Com-
mission (SEC) and the
Federal Citizen Informa-
tion Center,.you can learn
a lot about what it takes to
,become a smart investor.
First, figure out how
much money you can in-
vest each month. It's a
myth that you must have
a lot of money; a small


amount invested regular-
ly will get you started.
Pay off high interest debt,
-limit the use of credit
cards and earmark your
savings for an investment
program. Read "Get the
,Facts on Saving and In-
vesting" to learn about the
different types of invest-
ments. For example,


stocks give you owner-
ship in a company. And
what you make depends
on how well, or how poor-
ly, the company does. A
mutual fund is a pool of
money run by one or more
professional advisors who
invest in a number of dif-
ferent stocks, bonds, or
other investments. Mutual
funds are generally less
risky than a single stock.
Thinking about using a
professional? Check out
"Questions You Should
Ask About Your Invest-
ments" for tips on how to
find a reputable and expe-
rienced investment advi-
sor and how to check out
an investment's past per-
formance and reputation.
And don't. forget to find
out what it costs to pur-
chase, maintain and sell
your. investment, includ-
ing commissions and fees.
Investing doesn't have
to be confusing or intimi-


dating.

tion it can be exciting and
rewarding, so order your

"Taste," said Sharon Yeago,
!manager of the High Springs
Farmers' Market in Alachua
County. "That's what really gets
people first. A carrot fresh from
the ground tastes totally differ-
ent from one that's had to travel
a long distance over many days.
It's tender. It's delicious.
There's so much flavor. It's so

Farmers usually harvest in

heading to the markets, so it's

"Most packaging is designed
to help food endure the rigors of
long-distance shipping," Bron-
son said. "When we buy local,
we keep that heavy packaging
out of the waste stream."
When food travels less, fewer
resources are spent 'on trans-
portation and packaging-and
less money is spent on those
things, too. That means the
farmer is able to keep more of
your food dollar. Farming be-
comes more profitable, and
small farmers are under less
pressure to sell out to develop-
ers.
"I like knowing that my mon-
ey helps support local farmers,"
Sugrue said. "I \ ant there to be
farms in mN area. I like seeing
fields and trees. I don't want
Florida to be wall-to-wall hous-
es and strip malls."
Eating locally makes for
stronger farms-and better towns
and cities, better communities.
"When you buy local, you are
investing in the local economy,"
Austin said. "Your money stays
in the community, where it fuels
economic growth and is used to
hire local workers."
"Farmers' markets can be ex-
cellent tools for local economic
development," Bronson said.
i i'., '


"Starting a farmers' market can
help revitalize a city's down-
town. Folks come into the area
to shop at the farmers' market
and they end up patronizing
other nearby businesses. A suc-
cessful farmers' market can
help lift up everybody."
Farmers' markets serve as
community gathering places,
spaces where people can linger
and -chat and get to know each
other. Tallahassee's Downtown
Marketplace has evolved into a
weekly festival, with live mu-


sic, arts and crafts, educational
exhibits, and community out-
reach. The health department
conducts free glaucoma screen-
ings; the Humane Society offers
pet adoptions. The market hums
with activity. People come to
buy produce-and just to be a
part of things.
"There tends to be a social as-
pect to the markets," Bronson
said. "The old ties between
farmer and consumer are re-
stored."
"I feel like shopping at the


farmers' markets is a really pos-
itive thing," Sugtue said. "It's
good for me, it's good for the
farmers,, and it's good for the
environment and our city. It's
one of the easiest good things' I
can do. Just .by buying- some
tomatoes, I'm helping create the
kind of friendly, clean, healthy
world I want to live in."

Heat Stroke: A Summer Time, Hazard
As more people move outdoors for various activities during the summer
months, the threat of illness related to heat increases Specific threats
include heat stroke, heat exhaustion, and heat cramps. The most
threatening is heat stroke, a medical emergency that can cause death if not
properly managed. Health experts define heat stroke as, a-body
temperature of 1060F or higher that is associated with neurological
dysfunction. One form of the condition occurs in young persons who are
,involved in strenuous physical activity. The other, called nonexertional
heat stroke, occurs in older persons who are sedentary and often have one
or more, chronic health problems. The National Centers for Health
Statistics indicates that over 300 deaths occur each year from heat stroke.
Prevention includes avoidance of strenuous activity during the hottest
part of the day, drinking plenty of liquids, avoiding alcohol, and wearing
hats and light colored and loose fitting clothes when outside. Treatment
starts with getting the individual into a shady, cool area and applying cool
or tepid water to the skin. In the emergency room, physicians may reduce
the temperature by various methods. If the person affected is unconscious,
supplemental oxygen may be administered albng with intravenous fluids.

AMERICA, our Home Sweet Home


By Pam Campbell
America, our Home Sweet Home! Have you ever
thought about what your life might be like if you
had been born in another country, say in the war-
torn Middle East, or one of the Third World coun-
tries of Central America or Communist China? I am
sure none of our lives would be anything like we
are living today. In the Bible God says in Acts 17:26
"From one man God made every nation of men,
that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He
determined the times set for them and the exact
places where they should live." You see, before you
were ever born God knew.you would be blessed to
live in America.
How many times do we take for granted the
blessings we have living in a free country? Every
time we go to a grocery store and see food on the
shelves is a blessing. If we have money to purchase
groceries, that is a miracle. You see, after traveling
to several countries away from home in January,
March and May, I am again reminded of the amaz-
ing country that we call home, America. When we
were in Nassau, Bahamas in January, we decided to
go into one of the grocery stores there to see
where the locals shop. It was truly heartbreaking to
see a country that is so close to ours with so little
available to them. The store had a couple of aisles
in the middle, and then some shelves around the
outer walls. Many shelves were just bare, or had
only one or two of several different kinds of items.
They had very little variety of foods and the prices
on what they did have would scare you. Meat and
produce were scarce, and the little we saw was
pitiful to see and outrageously priced. I was think-
ing.to myself as we walked through this store how
many people right here in our area go to one of
the stores in our town and fill up a whole cart
every week and probably purchase smaller
amounts other days of the week. In Nassau, we
saw many who try to make a living selling their
hand.crafts in,the straw market come into the store
and buy, only one or two things because that is all.
they could afford. This is definitely not the land of
plenty. Imagine a bottle of shampoo that I see so
many times on sale for 78 cents, or at the most 98
cents, selling for $4.89. Once again, I was remind-
ed of Roatan, Honduras, where milk is over $9 a
gallon if you can get it, and when you do get it, it
is already sour. Yes, we are truly a blessed people!
How many children here in America would be.
overjoyed when given a small sandwich-sized Zi-
ploc bag with a few pieces of candy, either a little
toy car or a tiny doll and maybe some stickers, hair
barrettes or plastic animals? How many of our
teens would be thrilled to be given that same size
Ziploc bag with a new toothbrush, toothpaste,
floss, a comb and some candy? Well, in many coun-
tries we have visited, the smiles of the children, the
teens and even some adults have been incredible!
There was a little boy in the Turks and Caicos that
took his bag and began setting every little thing,
out for his mom to see. He was so very thankful,
and excited. Then the same thing happened in the
Bahamas where we got a wonderful picture of

these two little boys receiving their bags and they
kept saying thank you over and over again! We
then had the opportunity to share with the mama,
too. She was thanking Jennifer for her son's bag
and joked about where was her bag, and Jennifer
pulled out one with a comb, tooth brush, etc. for
,her and she, too, was all smiles!
It is so much fun to bless someone else! It is a
wonderful way to share God's love. 2 Corinthians
9:12 says, "This service you perform not only meets
the needs of God's people, but also produces an
outpouring of gratitude to. God." We all can share
God's love with others right where we live. Think
of ways you could be a blessing to someone,
maybe taking food to someone who is sick, writing,
a card or note to encourage a person, maybe send-
ing a thinking of you card or e-mail to someone or
helping with a fund-raiser for someone in need.
'Look around every day, as someone where you live
could surely use a reminder of the love of God.'


A real shock to our family was the tremendous
poverty we saw in Panama. After having been to
Costa Rica and seeing the lush green land 'with
beautiful pineapple plantations, banana planta-
tions, coffee plantations and. many rain forests, we
were unprepared for what Panama had to offer,
Yes, Panama has real cities, and the Panama Canal,
but this is definitely the poorest and dirtiest coun-
try we'have visited. Last'year, we thought the
poverty of Belize and Honduras were bad and they
are, but it is not as bad as Panama. There are some

large buildings in Panama City, yes, you can see the
Pacific Ocean, but most of the people live in filth,
and dire poverty, only a few of the elite rich, or fa-
mous have anything. The children and parents
here in this country seemed as though they could
not believe that the little bags of toys and candy
had been brought from America for them.
As we toured this country on an old worn out,
hot bus we really had time to reflect on our own
home, our own lives and realize how wonderful it
is to live in the good old U.S.A. When we were out
of the bus at one point, we were looking at some
handcrafts the Panamanian people were selling.
Everywhere you went there was a horrible sewage
like smell. We even noticed it in the city area,
which was supposed to be a better part of the
country. When the bus was stopped waiting on traf-
fic, we noticed out the window down in the water
under the bridge we would soon go over, there
was loads of garbage floating in the water, so much
so that it was almost creating a dam in the flow of
water. Soon, we noticed in the yards of the little
houses were places where they seemed to throw
out their garbage in the yard and leave it there.
This was definitely a poor country. Many of the
people in Costa Rica seemed to be hard workers.
Everywhere we travel, God shows us how blessed
we are to live in our country. We realize how much
more we have and how many more opportunities
there are in America than so many other places in
our world. In the beginning of this article, I asked
if you have ever thought about what your life
would be like if you had been born in another
country. Myself, I have seen many beautiful places
and many terrible places in our travels, but I have
yet to see anywhere I would:rather call home than
America, the land of the free. Sure, our country has
many problems, and we have poor and needy peo-
ple. In fact; we could list many faults in; our coun-.
try if we really wanted to. However; no matter how
you look at it, America is still the land of the free
and the home of the brave. America is a nation
blessed by God.
This year, as we celebrate Independence Day,
our nation's birthday, remember to be thankful to
God for allowing us to live in a nation where we
still have our freedom, where we can still worship
God, go to school, Church, work, play and travel.
We can raise our-children. and choose how many
children you want without the government telling
you otherwise. You can have a holiday picnic or
leave our country to visit other places and return
to our own country without fear. Think about it,
most of us have food, clothes, a home, family, an
income and the opportunity to go someplace if we
desire.
Do not ever get to the point where you take for
granted the blessings you have in this country. Re-
member to pray for this nation, as America needs
God's blessings.
I love traveling and sharing God's love with oth-
ers in many different ways, but I am always thank-
ful to arrive safely home to America, our Home
Sweet Home. Have a blessed Fourth of July!

and blue, waving our flag, having pic-
nics, going to parades or fireworks. It
is for most people a day full of fun!'
We celebrate our country' birthday.
because we live in a.free country. Not,
all countries in the world allow the


people to celebrate or have picnics.
Many countries are too poor to have a
picnic. Have you ever thought what
your life would be like if you had
been born in a different country other
than America? I am sure none of our
lives would be anything like we are liv-
ing today. In the Bible God says in
Acts 17:26 "From one man God made
every nation of men, that they should
inhabit the whole earth; and He deter-

mined the times set for them and the
exact places where they should live."
You see before you were ever born
God knew that you would be blessed
to live in America.
How many times have you been to
the grocery store with your mom or
dad? I am sure that you saw lot's of,
aisles of all different kinds of gro-
ceries. Just recently, my family and I
were in another country not too far
away from here. and went in to one of
the grocery stores. It was so sad, they
had only a few different things on a
few shelves, what they had did not
look good and the prices were way
too high. A bottle of shampoo you can
buy for less than $1 here in America
cost nearly $5 ,there. The people are
very poor and cannot buy much.
I wonder how excited you'kids
would be to receive a little Ziploc bag
with a few pieces of candy and gum,
and a little tiny toy car or tiny doll
and maybe a sticker, hair barrette or:
plastic animal? The children in many
countries we have traveled to are so
excited they smile, some jump up and
down, some hug us, they show every-
one their treasures. To them it is like.
Christmas! You see, these children do
not have much, and they really appre-
ciate whatever someone gives them.
There was a little boy in one coun-
try who .took his bag and began set-
ting every little thing out for his mom
to see. He was so very thankful and

excited. The same thing happened in
the Bahamas where we got a wonder-
ful picture of a little boy getting a bag.
We had the opportunity to share with
his mama, too. She was thanking Jen-
nifer for her son's bag and joked
about where was her bag, Jennifer
pulled out one with a comb, tooth-
brush, and a few pieces of candy for
her, and she too was all smiles! It is so
much fun to bless someone else! It is
a wonderful way to share God's love,
and see smiles on people's faces!
You can share God's love with oth-
ers right where you live! Think of
ways that you could make someone
happy. Maybe making them a card,
drawing someone who is sick or lone-
ly a picture or giving someone a hug.
Everywhere we go we see things that
remind us how blessed we are to live
in America.
I asked you if you ever had thought
what your life would be like if you
had been born in a different country. I
know I am thankful to be living in
America. I know our country has
problems, but thank God, our country
is free! We are free to go to school, to
church, to work, out to play. We have
stores where there is food to buy, and
we are can buy it. We are free to cele-
brate the fourth of July. We can have a
picnic,. We. can travel to other places,.
We truly are blessed to live in Ameri-
ca!
America is still a nation blessed by
'God, ahid this year as we celebrate our
countr-'s birthday, the fourth of July,
remember to be thankful to God for
allowing you to live in a country'
where we still have our freedom
Think about it, most ofuis'have
food, clothes, a home, and a
family. Do notever
S.. get to the point
where you
'!take for
granted the
blessings you
h' ave in this
country.
Remember to
i pray for your
country, Ameri-
ca needs God's
blessings to
continue on
her.
I am so thank-
ful to live in,
SAmerica, our Home
,. Sweet Home. Have a
blessed Fourth of July!

(NAPS)-An estimated 10 million Americans alive today have
faced a cancer diagnosis. Fortunately, advances in cancer care
and treatment have dramatically improved survival rates and
overall quality of life. That improvement is largely due to patients
who are taking an active role in their cancer treatment. The next
step is to find out how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and properly
care for your entire body.
"Many patients focus on questions about their cancer
treatment, so they often don't think about other facets of their
disease," said Dr. G. David Roodman, Director of Myeloma
Program, University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and Director
of Bone Biology Center, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
"One important consideration that is often overlooked is the
impact of cancer on the bone, which may lead to fractures and
can be debilitating."
When faced with cancer, it is important to remember that no
question is inappropriate. Here are five questions cancer
patients may not know to ask their oncologist:
Will cancer and its treatment affect other parts of my body?:
Several of the,most common types of cancer (e.g., breast,
lung, prostate, kidney) can spread from the original tumor site to
invade the bone, a process known as bone metastasis. Multiple
myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cell, can also progress to the
bone. It is important that you visit your oncologist to conduct a
full medical examination to determine if your cancer has
metastasized and learn how you can take action to protect your
bones.
Should I be concerned about other medical conditions, such
as diabetes or heart disease, and their impact on cancer?
Preexisting medical conditions put you at higher risk for
developing complications throughout your cancer treatment. It is
important you speak with the doctor who has been overseeing
your condition as well as your oncologist to determine the most
appropriate treatment option.
Do I still need to see my other health care professionals
(primary care physician, gynecologist, dentist) since I am under
the care,of my oncologist?,' ,
. ..It.is extremely important that you visit your other health care
providers to ensure you are not neglecting other potential health
problems. It is crucial to talk about your cancer diagnosis and
treatment with your other doctors, as they make up your overall
health care team.

Advances in cancer care and treatment have dramatically improved
survival rates and overall quality of life.

How can I maintain intimacy with my partner after my cancer
-diagnosis?
While some people experience little or no change in their
sexual desire and energy level, others find that their sexual
interest declines due to the physical and emotional stress of
having cancer and undergoing treatment. Just as it is important to
speak with your doctor about the side effects of treatment, you
must speak with your partner about your feelings and concerns
so the two of you can work through it together and find ways to
attend to this important part of your life.
Are there certain foods or drinks I should be sure to.include in
my diet as.a result of my cancer or the treatments I am
receiving?
In order to maintain the best possible health, cancer patients
need to exercise and eat a healthy diet. Talk to your doctor about
creating a customized exercise and diet plan-and stick tolit.-. '"

informative Web site that provides education to patients and their
families about the impact of cancer and cancer treatments on
their bones.

Heartless tax law: The premature distributions tax


By Craig R. Hersch, Board
Certified Wills, Trusts &
Estates Attorney and CPA
Beware when you or a
family member must in-
vade a qualified retire-
ment account, because
the 10 percent penalty is
imposed if you make an
"early withdrawal" even
if the withdrawal is due
to a financial hardship.
Section 72(t)(1) of the In-
ternal Revenue Code
generally imposes a 10
percent additional tax on
premature distributions
from "a qualified retire-
ment plan" such as a
401(k). The only excep-
tions to this tax penalty
are certain distributions
that fall within one of
the categories narrowly
specified in Section
72(t)(2).
A recent U.S. tax court


summary opinion said
the hardship must fall
within the definition of a
"qualifying" hardship to
avoid the early distribu-
tion penalty. In the case,
the defendant's former
husband was involved in
a diving accident and be-
came a quadriplegic. She
worked from August
2001 to September 2003
but quit at the end of the
year to care for her two
young children. Due to
financial hardship, the
defendant during 2003
took a lump-sum distrib-
ution from the 401(k) ac-
count maintained by her
former employer. The
.defendant at the time
was under age 55, -and
used the money to pay
normal, day-to-day liv-
ing expenses. When she
filed her tax return for


2003, she reported the
distribution as income.
The IRS sent her a statu-
tory notice of deficiency
and held her liable for a
10 percent additional tax
on the distribution un-
der Section 72(t) on the
grounds that she re-
ceived the distribution
"prematurely."
Purpose of the Tax
The legislative pur-
pose underlying the Sec-
tion 72(t) tax is that "pre-
mature distributions
from IRAs frustrate the
intention of saving for
retirement, and Section
72(t) discourages this
from happening."
Courts. have 'many
times declared sympathy
for taxpayers but have
stated that they are
bound by the statutory
exceptions enumerated


in the code. The defen-
dant's argument was
that she did have a qual-
ifying hardship; the
court didn't disagree
that she had a hardship
but held that she didn't
demonstrate that her sit-
uation fell within any of
the exceptions to the 10-
percent additional tax
under section 72(t)(2).
Other cases have. had
similar outcomes where
taxpayers took distribu-
tions due to financial
hardship and used the
money to pay bills, pri-
vate-school tuition or to
pay off debts.
Enumerated .Excep-
tions
Generally, the follow-
ing are exempted distri-
butions under 72(t)(2):
Distributions made
on or after the' date on


which the employee at-
tains age 59 and a half
Those made to a ben-
eficiary or to the estate
of the employee on or af-
ter the death of the em-
ployee
Those attributable to
the employee's being
disabled
Withdrawals that are
part of a series of sub-
stantially equal periodic
payments, not less fre-
quently than annually,
made for the life or life
expectancy of the em-
ployee or the joint lives
or joint life expectancies
of such employee and
his designated beneficia-
ry
Distributions made
to an employee after sep-
aration from service af-
ter attainment of age 55,
or made .on account, of


certain levies under the
Internal Revenue Code.
It is sad and really un-
forgivable that our laws
and courts are so inflexi-
ble in a situation such as
the case discussed here.
Isn't it ironic that our
wise Congress seeks to
protect us from our own
folly and lack of fiscal
discipline? Our tax laws
should do better. We as
taxpayers need to hold
Congress and the White
House accountable.

the cancer hospital."
"We sincerely hope that
the auxilians' generositv
will help ignite' charitable
support for this exciting en-


deavor," Goldfarb added.
"UF and Shands are nation-
al leaders in cancer research
and patient care. With con-
tinued philanthropic assis-
tance for the cancer hospi"
tal, we will be able to make


more progre_- toward find-
ing a cure for cancer and
providing enhanced treat-
ment alternatives for our
patients."
Shands is building the
cancer hospital in response


to an increased demand for
cancer services. According
to the American Cancer So-
ciety, Florida is. the-fourth
largest state but has the sec-
ond highest number of new
cancer cases. Approximate-


ly 5.6 million Floridians are
at risk for cancer, and in:
north-central Florida, there
are at least 4,500 new cases
of cancer each year among
residents.
Shands is building the


cancer hospital on South-
west Archer Road, across
the road from the Shands at
UF medical'center campus.
Construction is scheduled
to begin in January of 2007
and be completed in 2009.

Remote camping without roughing it
.. .... .. _.. .. . .. . .- 7. A


(ARA) "Roughing it"
is the phrase that
probably comes to mind
first whenever someone
mentions the term
remote camping. You
may even imagine
camping as relying on
just an open flame to
prepare a hot meal,
treating your few
remaining batteries as if
they were a precious
commodity, and hoping
there's the faintest hint
of a breeze to cool you
down on the hottest of
summer days or the
warmth of the sun to
thaw you on the coldest.
Fortunately, when you
leave the campground
behind in search of your
favorite remote
destination, your trip
doesn't have to look like
an episode of
"Survivor." Recent
innovations in the world
of power generation are
now allowing you the,
chance to enjoy the best
of all worlds -- the
ability to unplug from
the campground and
enjoy some of the
country'smost beautiful
sites without losing the
convenience of everyday
electronic devices.
"Many remote camping
guides flat out tell you
to leave the Mr. Coffee
at home," says Karen
Zellner, manager of RV
Marketing at Onan, a
power generation
equipment company.
"But w-ith the,. ,,;. $, o
introducf6ii-X 'f products
like Camp Power by
Onan, remote campers
can not only pack that
coffee maker, they can
also bring along a
microwave oven, a DVD
player and -even take
refuge from a brutally
hot afternoon by turning
on an air. conditioner."
Camp Power is the
first installed generator
designed specifically for
the smaller, towable RVs
so popular with many of
today's campers.
Compact enough to
install under a bench or .
inside a cabinet and
extremely quiet, these
generators will
dramatically change
towable RV camping in
the. future.
"So often that scenic
vista or hidden oasis
isn't close to the


. 7... : ::


campground. And
families are often
hesitant to disconnect
their RV and really
explore so their camping
experience is limited to
the area nearest the
electrical hook-up," said
Zellner. "The recent
advancements in
generator technology
now allow the camper
towing an RV to enjoy
the same experience and
freedoms as the
operator of a larger
coach motor home with
installed power."
"The great appeal of
RVs is taking the
comforts of home with
you," said Ken Sommer,
of the Recreation.
Vehicle Industry
Association (RVIA).
"RVs are great for
campgrounds, but it's a
real treat to get out to a
remote location and
explore the public lands
that are available."

Hunting and Fishing
Outdoor sports
enthusiasts are another
group that can benefit
from having a quiet
mobile power supply in
their towable RVs. In
most cases that favorite
fishing hole or lucky
hunting ground is
nowhere near an
electrical hookup. So the
outdoorsmen without
power are forced to
either travel some
distance from the
c, cmpground to their
destination or .,- .. ..
disconnect their RV and
be left without a way to
power the features that
lead them to purchase
the unit in the first
place.
"RVs can serve as a
base camp for both
hunting and fishing and
provides tremendous
versatility," said the
RVIA's Sommer. "If
you're at a fishing spot
and not catching
anything, you can just
pack up and try
elsewhere."
In addition to making
the whole experience
easier, there-are some
practical implications of
having power when
hunting and fishing.
"For starters, you can
clean and cook your
own fish in the kitchen,"
Sommer added.


Each Kit Includes:
* 2 All-Weather Fluorescent "For Sale" Signs
* Successful Tips
"Get Top Dollar for Your Used Car"
Pre-Sale Checklist

With continued
development and
diminishing access to
private land, RVs will
prove even more
essential to hunters who
are being forced to
travel well off the beaten
path in search of elusive
game. And although
they are removed from
civilization, by bringing
along power, spoilage
can no longer be given
as their excuse for
returning empty
handed. In fact, many
hunters now bring
freezers with them so
they can quickly

Landscape lighting design ideas to showcase your home


(ARA) Landscape
lighting used to be simple.
A few recessed can fixtures
lining the front path, a
couple downlights tucked
in the trees, and you were
done. Not anymore. When
it comes to the great
outdoors, homeowners
have seen the light.
"Today, the biggest
excitement in outdoor
lighting is the whole
artistic aspect," says Dan
Blitzer, education
consultant for the
American Lighting
Association. "Think of it as
painting a picture of the
landscape at night, using
lights to achieve the look a
homeowner wants."
Night-lighting your
landscape offers a creative
way to showcase your
home and property after
dark. Properly placed,
lights can dramatize trees,
highlight favorite shrubs
and accent statuary,
fountains and flowerbeds.
Like any creative work, the
options abound.
"The challenge with
landscape lighting is that
most people.don't
immediately see all the
possibilities," says Joe Rey-
Barreau, American
Lighting Association
consulting director of
education and director of
'the Lighting and Design
Center at the University of
Kentucky. "Outdoor
lighting can be both
functional and aesthetic.
It's an art to understand
how much light to place on
a houWe or determine
where.the focal-points are.!'
To light correctly, key in
on architectural features.
Consider uplighting an
arbor, archway or facade
for a dramatic effect. Wash
the side of the house with a
splash of light. Graze a
textured fence or wall with
a focused beam. Illuminate
the water in a pool or pond
with submersible lights.
Silhouette a tree or bush by
placing lights below and
behind the object. While
some lights take a
fashionable approach,'
others focus on function.
Low voltage lights
installed under handrails,
stairs and bench seating on
decks help lighten things
up for outdoor
entertaining..Stronger
beams designed to shine
over an outdoor activity
area like a basketball court
Sadd extra hours of post-
dusk fun.
"If you cook out at night,


position a spotlight in the
eaves of the house to send
a beam directly over the
BBQ," says Rey-Barreau.
A well-lit home is also
safer and more secure.
Illuminated steps, paths
and driveways prevent
after-dark accidents.
Motion detectors light up
obscure spots when
someone passes by.
Photocells automatically
turn on fixtures at dusk
and off at dawn, providing
protection even when
you're away from home.
"If your home is not
properly lighted, there is a
greater chance of someone
breaking in," says Daniel
Lecian, ALA Lighting
Specialist for the
Hermitage Lighting
Gallery in Nashville, Tenn.
The key to attractive
outdoor lighting follows a
less-is-more philosophy.
Soft, natural light should
mimic moonlight on the
property.
"It's important not to
over-light," says Todd
Langner, vice president of
marketing for Kichler in
Cleveland. "What you
should see is the
landscape, not the lights so
that the outdoor lighting
tells a visual story at
night."
When installing outdoor
lights, 'conceal the light
source behind shrubs, tree.
branches or other foliage --
unless the, fixture is a:
decorative element.
"You should see the light
effect, not the source," says
Richard Lentz of Lentz
.. Landscape Lighting of-
Dallas. "The bulb and
fixture should disappear
when the lights are turned
on. All that should be
visible is the glow of light
on the flowers, the wall or
the path."
More people staying at
home has helped foster the
current fascination in.
landscape lighting. "The
trends have been very
home oriented," says
Blitzer. "People are
interested in dressing up
their homes even more."
Lighting showrooms and
manufacturers have
expanded their stock as
well, resulting in more
outdoor options for
consumers. "For a long
time, landscape lighting
revolved around do-it-
yourself, low-voltage lights.
picked up at home centers
and installed by the
consumer in a line about
two feet apart," says Rey-


-Barreau. "These were not
really made to withstand:
the weather conditions and
were not long-term
solutions.."
Styles range from large
overhead cylindrical
floodlights to minute spot
or accent lights used for
highlighting specific
features. Spread and
diffused units set low to
the ground, line paths,
flowerbeds and driveways
and cast a broader glow.
The latest looks in such
path lights depend on
fixtures that can be placed
further apart to create a
more attractive glow.
Some lights are
patterned like three-leaf
clusters or single leaf
containers. Others boast,
more traditional lantern
styles. Still others beam
from within floral fixtures
installed in flowerbeds.
'!There have been new
product developments,"
says Rey-Barreau.
"Weather-resistant
products and new plastic
technology are both
attractive and functional."
Bulbs have also
improved. Newer 65- and .
120-watt incandescent
bulbs provide up to 25
percent more light.
Compact fluorescent bulbs
produce soft lighting, the
highest energy savings,
and last up to 10,000 hours.
Mercury vapor bulbs
. supply a strong, cost-


conscious light with a cool
color that can last as long
as 24,000 hours or six
years burning dusk to
dawn.
While most homeowners
opt for pure white light,
others like the hint of hue.
Warm tones like yellow or
red introduced properly,
can make the landscape
come alive at night. Green
lights can make foliage
look even greener.
"Be careful with colored
lights," says Rey-Barreau.
"Unless they a'redone


carefully, they can look
garish."
The cost for installing
outdoor lighting is as
varied as the landscape
designs. According to :
expert., highlighting a
couple of trees in a typical
suburban front lawn could
run from $800 to $1,200. A
one-acre property with an
elaborate lighting scheme
can cost as much as
$10,000. ,
