Summer food safety


The lazy days of summer
are prime time for outdoor
eating at backyard barbe-
cues, picnics, and- family re-
unions. They're also prime
time for getting lazy about
handling food safely. Serve
up healthy and tasty offer-
ings all summer with the
free Summer Food Safety
package from the US Food
and Drug Administration
and the Federal Citizen In-
formation Center.
This free package is filled
with tips on safely handling
food at home. For instance,
keeping raw foods like burg-
ers and ribs and their juices
away from other foods will
keep bacteria and germs
from spreading. And wash
your hands, food prep areas,
dishes, and utensils after
working .with each food
item. ,
The package's handy sug-
gestions. will also help you
prevent food front spoiling,
whether it's on your counter,
or the picnic. table. Store
foods at safe temperatures.
Keep foods cold until you're
ready to cook them, and
don't thaw food on the
counter top so bacteria won't
grow. When you' cook on the
stove or the grill, use a meat
thermometer to make sure
food gets hot enough to kill
bacteria and germs.
Don't let down your
guard when you get takeout
or eat out. The safest way to
eat meat, poultry, eggs, and
is to oder them fully)
cooked. And when you take
leftovers home, refrigerate
them within two hours or
throw them out. Make sure
to reheat your food until it's


hot and steaming to get rid
of cold spots where germs
can live.
Food safety rules can do
more than keep food from
going bad. Following the
rules can head off serious ill-
nesses. The bacteria, viruses,
and parasites that grow in
food can cause some nasty
and serious symptoms, es-
pecially for infants, the el-
derly, and those with weak-
ened immune systems. With
the Summer Food Safety
package, learn which foods
often harbor bugs, so you
can keep everyone you serve
safe..
The Summer Food Safety
package is the perfect com-
plement to any summer
meal. There are three easy
ways to get your free pack-

New UF tool measures heart implant patients' anxiety


Implantable heart de-'
vices are the treatment
of choice for patients
with potentially life-
threatening irregular
heartbeats. But the
thought of receiving a
high-energy shock to re-
store normal cardiac
rhythm can strike fear in
their hearts nonetheless.
Just ask Ed Burns, of
Ocala, who received an
implantable cardioverter
defibrillator, or ICD, five
years ago. The uncer-
tainty of when or if the
device would fire -made
him wary of driving
long distances. Before
setting out on a road trip
to California to visit
family, Burns researched
and made a list of every
medical center along the
route that could treat
ICD patients.
Now a new tool from
the University of Florida
can help health-care
providers identify which
patients may need psy-
chological services to
cope with anxiety. It's
called the Florida Shock
Anxiety Scale, and UF
researchers report on its
effectiveness in the cur-
rent issue, of Pacing arid
Clinical Electrophysiolo-
gy .. ..
The research was done
as part of a continuing
series of investigations
on. ICD recipients' psy-
chological health led by
Samuel Sears, Ph.D., an
associate professor in
the department of clini-
cal and health psycholo-


gy at the UF College of
Public Health and
Health Professions, and
Jamie Conti, M.D., an as-
sociate professor in the
College of Medicine.
"Patients with an ICD
can have unique fears
that separate them from
people with other gener-,
al anxieties," said Emily
Kuhl, the study's lead
author and a doctoral
,candidate in the depart-
ment of clinical and
health psychology.
The ICD is a battery-
powered device that
constantly monitors the
patient's heartbeat and
delivers a 750-volt shock
to restore normal
rhythm if it senses a dan-
gerous rapid rhythm de-
veloping. Approximate-
ly 150,000 -patients
worldwide received an
ICD in 2004, according
to researchers at the Uni-
versity of Marburg in
Germany.
Patients' concerns
about ICDs recently
gained national atten-
tion 'after manufacturers
recalled 109,000 defibril-
lators last year. Device
flaws have been linked
to at least seven deaths.
Patients with. an ICD
may be afraid that if 'the
device fires they may
harm themselves or oth-
ers, or create a scene. Or
they may be fearful that
certain activities, such as
exercise or sexual activi-
ty, might, trigger a shock,
Kuhl said.
Research has shown


that 10 percent to 38 per-
cent of ICD recipients
will experience a shock
within the first year of
receiving the implant.
The sensation is often
described as feeling like
a kick in,the chest.
"Patients usually de-
scribe a shock as a six on
a pain scale of one to
10," Kuhl said. "A shock
is not so much painful as
it is surprising. Chances
are that a shock won't
interfere to the point that
a patient is unsafe.to dri-
ve or care for children."
To test its effective-
ness, UF researchers ad-
ministered the Florida
Shock Anxiety Scale, a
writtet- questionnaire
developed with help
from -dOctoral students
Robyn Walker and Neha.
Dixit, to 22 ICD recipi-
ents. The patients rated,
the frequency of anxious
thoughts, such as "I am
afraid of being alone
when'the ICD fires and I
will need help" and '"I
am afraid to touch oth-
ers for fear 'that I will
shock them if the ICD
fires."
Researchers analyzed
participants' responses
and determined that the
scale evaluates the cor-
rect underlying anxiety
concepts and proved
highly reliable.
"We knew we, had a
reliable measure on our
hands that could've po-
tentially a great tool for
health-care providers,"
Kuhl said.

"We also want to get

so they use it, under-

said, adding that psy-
chological treatment for
ICD patients is not stan-
dard care in the United
States.
Burns said patient ,ed-
ucation was key to help-
ing him overcome his
fears after he received
his ICD.
. "Now I know what an
ICD is and what it does,
and I'm not the least bit
concerned," Burns said.
"You learn to live with
the ICD and& it becomes
part of your body."

James Cooper seeks office of School Board Member District 4


I, James Cooper, announce my
intent to seek the office of School
Board Member, District 4.
Thanks to Barbara Ceryak for 16
years of dedicated service as a
School Board Member from Dis-
trict 4 and for the love she has for
children. I wish her well.
There are many good people
employed by the Suwannee
County School Board both in-
structioinal and school related. I
feel honored and blessed to have
worked with a cadre of wonderful
people.
I have visited many school dis-
tricts throughout the state and I
am proud to say that Suwannee
County School System is one of
the best in the state of Florida. Our
teachers and school related em-
ployees are doing a great job of
providing needed services for our
students. We must continue to
provide adequate resources which
.will enable our students to be-


come productive citizens in our.
community and the world. I am
proud to have been a member of
the team who contributed to that
success.
My mission is to continue sup-
porting the good policies and pro-
grams which lead to success for
all of our schools. Our children
deserve the best. I want to be a
member of a team which is com-
mitted to providing the best possi-
ble educational opportunity for
each child so he or she will be pre-
pared for the work force or post
secondary education. The Suwan-
nee School System has afforded
me the opportunity to grow pro-
fessionally and as a person. Now
is the time for me to give back to
the system. Everyone in the sys-
tem plays a vital role in providing
a healthy and safe learning envi-
ronment. There are bumps in the
road such as: dropout rate; gradu-
ation rate; shortage ofhighlyqual-


James Cooper
ified teachers; and lack of parental
involvement. We must continue
to work together as a team to re-
move the bumps in the road
which impede the progress to-
ward success. We cannot change
yesterday,- but we can make the
most of todayand look with hope
for a better tomorrow.

Q, How should I pick

my house color?
4hsqe Deep Ruivet,

The names ate enough to make your.head spin.
Choosinlg a paint color becomes even more baffling

%%hen \ou consider that most homes use at least three different
shades -- one for the siding and t o or more for trim and accents
such as doors, railings and window sashes.
A well-chosen selection of contrasting trim and accent colors
can draw attention to architectural details and disguise design
flaws. A poor selection can make a house seem flat and
featureless -- Or so garish that the color overwhelms the
architecture. But, how do you decide?
Here are a few pointers to guide you as you choose house paint
colors: historic authenticity, neighborhood context, existing
colors, interior colors,.accents, darks and lights, harmony and
contrast, balance, durability, sheen and color deceptions

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Dear Editor:
Around 11 p.m. last night [Wednesday, June 28]
my daughter-in-law and her friend, who are both
deaf, along with my 5-month-old grandson, broke
down near a weigh station on Interstate 75 (White
Springs) near Jasper on their way back to Indiana af-
ter visiting Florida.
A man who works at the weigh station, George Mc-
Grew, gave them a ride to a motel, contacted a tow-
ing company to have her car towed and gave them
$200 to help with expenses. Her car had to be re-
paired in Valdosta, Ga. due to the fact that it was still
under warranty. Doug, who works at Mac's Repair &
Towing made several calls 'to arrange for repairs to
her car, towed it to Valdosta and also gave the three a
ride to Valdosta. He also made several calls to me in
Indiana to keep me informed as he knew how worried
I was.
I am astounded at the kindness and generosity of
these people. It warms my heart to know that in a
world of utter chaos, humanity still exists.
Thank you to these wonderful people!
Your readers are so lucky to have them as part of

LET'S TALK ABOUT LETTERS

Tips on sharing your

opinions in the paper
Newspaper readers love letters to the editor. For
that matter newspaper editors ldve letters to the edi-'
tor.
Letters let us know what you think. Letters provide
great reading. Letters offer valuable feedback.
Lately, readers of the .Suwannee. Democrat have
been sending us plenty of letters, and we encourage
you to keep them coming. All letters will be read.
Not all letters will be published. Let us offer a few
letter-writing suggestions:
Keep it short. We all prefer reading shorter items
that get to the point. An ideal range is .between 150
and 200 words.
Don't rant. Nothing turns readers away like a
misguided rant. Aim for a persuasive, rational argu-
ment supported by facts and figures.
Be topical. Know the issues that are in the news.
Letters focused on issues, particularly local issues,
are the best read.
Expect to be edited. Although the Suwannee De-
mocrat makes every effort not to, all newspapers
should reserve the right to edit. The editor should not
alter the writer's point of view. Well-written letters
require less editing.
Be legible. If you don't have a computer or a
typewriter, please write clearly. If need be, print. The
Suwannee Democrat also requires letters to include
the writer's name, address, telephone number and
written signature. The telephone number will not be
printed but is used for verification.
This newspaper will not run unsigned letters.
Send letters to:
Editor
Suwannee Democrat
P.O. Box 370
Live Oak, FL 32064
Fax: 364-5578

If you have any, questions about writing letters to
the editor, call 362-1734.


State Officials


Due to the fact that I was at a
Florida League of Cities meeting 1
week before last, I missed two im-
portant events in our city that week.
I understand that the Andra Davis
celebration was a great success.
Spirits were high and everyone had
a great time. The heat limited partic-
ipation in some of the planned
events. Andra is one of the great
success stories of our community. I BY SONNY
could not attend the second Millen-
nium Nights program either. I was told that the crowd was
much larger than it was the first night. I understand there were
so many performers, the program extended past 10 p.m.
Last week you were mailed the Annual Drinking Water
Quality Report. The report is required by law to be sent to all
potable water users in the City of Live Oak stating the quality
of your drinking water. I'm sure, just like me, you understood
everything about the MCLs, TTHMs, NTUs and all the other
stuff contained in the report. The most important fact in the re-
port is that your drinking water is safe and "meets all federal
and state requirements." There are natural contaminates in the
water that requires an expensive treatment process. At present,
the city, in cooperation with the Suwannee River Water-Man-
agement District, is investigating the possibility of relocating
the well field so that these treatment processes will not be nec-
essary. We are currently searching for a suitable site to locate
this new well field.
Watching the placement of theAC units by helicopter on the
new Lowe's building was quit interesting. I had only seen this
done on the television. The chopper was loud and pretty well
cleared the area of dirt and debris. Speaking of Lowes, I par-
ticipated in Freds grand opening last week and talked with
Glen Polite with the Employment Connection. Glen told me
that Lowe's hired or will hire 135 employees. These jobs will
have a definite positive impact on our economy. The words
NOW HIRING is music to my ears.
I remind you that by ordinance, all residents are to keep
their properties cleared of weeds and other debris. Also, I
again ask that your yard clippings not be. blown on the streets
or in the gutters. These clippings eventually find their way to
our drains, storm sewers or dry wells. As I travel the city, I see
this over and over again. The city began a storm water
drainage program and has already spent several hundred thou-
sand dollars on storm water projects. Other projects are un-'
derway and much money will be spent on new projects in the
future. It doesn't make sense to spend all of this money im-
proving our drainage system and at the same time degrade the


\%rA'U yq)Sc system with sand and clippings.
M.VO RSX Thanks for you .attention to both of
VORNER these items.
CO R I hope everyone. had a pleasant butt
uneventful Independence Day on July
4. Hopefully you wore your seat belt
as you traveled on this special day. ,
The Duces, along with the two No-
bles, represented the city of Live Oak
at the 32nd Annual God and Country '
NOBLES Day at Westwood this past Sunday. As <;
usual, the music and the message by
Pastor Jimmy Deas were very inspiring. You don't have to
wonder where brother Deas stands on issues that confront our
nation. God bless America.
Diane and I also attended the River Reunion in our sister
city of Branford. It was good to see Mrs. Shirley Hatch, who ,
by the way, is just as pretty as she was 40 years ago. I also got
some good news about Branford Mayor Don Owens. Mr; Don
had some pretty serious surgery, but I understand he is doing
very well. My daddy grew up in Branford, which was always
a special place to him. He always said when he passed away if .,
he could not go to heaven; he wanted to go to Branford. Con-
gratulations to Branford fdr another.successful River Reunion.
Beginning this week, Suwannee .Parks and Recreation is
hosting two state Babe Ruth baseball tournaments. Hundreds
of visitors will be in Live Oak for the tournaments. Our 11-
year-old all stars will represent Suwannee at a tournament in i
Fernandina this week. Should you have an opportunity, give 7
our visitors a big WELCOME TO LIVE OAK. The best of
luck goes to all our local teams as they compete.
The city of Live Oak will host a reception July 11 honoring
two retiring City Councilmen and welcoming two new Coun-
cilmen. Mr. George Blake and Mr. J. W. Yulee will be recog-
nized for their many years of dedicated service to the city and '
citizens of Live Oak. We will welcome your two new Coun-
cilmen, Mr. John Hale and Mr. Mark Stewart, who will be '
sworn in at the regular Council meeting at 7:30 p.m.. The re-
ception will begin at 6:30 p.m.. Everyone is invited to attend ,
this special ceremony. Refreshments will be served.
City Administrator Bob Farley and I attended the induction .
ceremony of Live Oak Police Chief Nolan McLeod as presi-
dent of the Florida Police Chiefs Association. Chief McLeod's
two sons had roles in the program. Chad gave the keynote ad-
dress while Joe administered the oath to his Dad. The ceremo-
ny was also marked with recognition awards being presented
to police officers who distinguished themsel cs \\ ith their ac-
tions in the line of duty. Thecity held a ceremony recognizing,
Nolan for this outstanding accomplishment. : ,

GROWING COMMUMTVY
There is no doubt that summer is here! The
temperature is above 90 degrees and the humidi-
ty is pushing 100% but aren't we blessed in
Suwannee County to have our river, lakes and Bi
wonderful cool springs! I can't say enough about
our county: the peace and quiet that our rural .
area affords each and every one of us and we .
wonder why people are moving here!


The signs and sounds of economic growth are
everywhere from new housing projects to new Dennis Cason
.. Economic Alliance
businesses moving into our communities. Fred's President
and Walgreen's are now open and our Lowe's
store will be opening its doors sometime in August. These three com-
panies will be bringing almost 200 new jobs to our community. Con-
gratulations to our established local business for expanding Badcock
Home Furnishings and Morrell's Furniture.

Someone asked me just the other day what I thought was in Suwan-
nee County's future. I said. "That's easy. We're going to grow! We have
all the necessary\ components for growth affordable land, rural setting.
and interstate access to take you any direction if you feel the need.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention the organizations that make up
the Suwannee County Economic Alliance and acknowledge their part
in making our growing process go smoothly. The Development Author-
ity and Council for Progress are conummitted to work together to facili-
tate economic development. The Tourist Development Council works to
attract visitors and encourage them to stay for a lifetime. The Chamber
of Commerce whose main goal is advancing the civic interests of its
members and the community also works to encourage growth, increase
-tourism and support local, attractions and events. Susan is.well into plan-
ning for this 'Nr.stl'MJ?Crf'Tfas'-ffthe Square. She'is also working on our'.
new Chamber Directory which will be in,a new format this year. April
and Yvette are.doing a great job working with new and existing business
in Hamilton, Lafayette, Madison and Suwannee County through the
Business Enterprise Center located in the Chamber. Contact them for
more information on small business development in the HUB Zone.

All of these groups are here to serve you in any way that we can.
Please call or come by and get involved in Suwannee County's future.

and mobile home prior to the
fire was about $37,000, with
more than $20,000 ,damage
done. r-
The home is owned by
Christina Robinson who lives on
24th Street.
On July 4, a kitchen fire on
129th Road left smoke and fire
damage to a mobile home.
According to the report on the
incident, Fire/Rescue were


called to a structure fire and
upon arriving found a double-
wide mobile home with the
kitchen half involved with the
homeowner's son-in-law putting
water on the roof due to the
amotmunt of smoke inside the
house. Fire fighters quickly put
out the fire using about 100 gal-
lons of water in the kitchen and
dining area. Ventilation fans
were set up to help pull out the
smoke while other fire fighters
checked for further fire, but soon


had all flames extinguished.
Cause of the fire was undeter-
mined and a damage estimate
was not given..
The home belongs to Betty
Touchton.
Several accidents were re-
ported in the area, including a
pedestrian on Interstate 10 who
was struck and killed by an ve-
hicle as he walked on the east-
bound lane of traffic. Identifica-
tion has not been confirmed on
the victim.

pushed to the floor, Marcelino
Bautista attempted to flee
through the door of the resi-
dence but was caught by one of
the suspects and beaten, while
Francisco Tomas was able to es-
cape from the residence and
summon police.
During the investigation, the
three suspects were identified
and found to all be juveniles.
They were arrested for home in-,
vasion robbery and two counts
of battery. All three were turned
over to the Department of Juve-
nile Justice in Gainesville.
A short while later, LOPD
Officer Casey Kinsey investi-
gated another home invasion
robbery which occurred at 1101
SW Fifth Street. Ajuvenile resi-
dent was at home when he
heard what sounded like glass
breaking. After he investigated,
the juvenile went back inside
the home. Moments later he
heard someone knock on the
front door of the home, LOPD
said. When the juvenile opened
the door, the suspects attacked
him, LOPD said. The suspects
draggedthe juvenile out of the
home and a fight ensued. Dur-
ing the fight, a handgun, which
was later found at the scene,
was suspected to have been
dropped by one of the suspects.
The juvenile was able to escape
when all fell over a small ledge
in front of the home and the
suspect released hunm. LOPD-
said.
During this investigation, in-
formation was developed which
led Officer Kinsey to the juve-


niles involved in the earlier
home invasion robbery, accord-
ing to LOPD. The investigation
in this case continues but the ju-
veniles have not been charged.
The handgun, which was
dropped at the scene, had been
reported stolen to the Suwannee
County Sheriff's Office in 2004.
The victim provided a de-
scription of the suspects as fol-


lows: #1, black male, red shorts,
dark T-shirt, about 6'2" tall, thin
build. Suspect #2, black male,
with a dreadlocks hairstyle. No
further information was provid-
ed.
Anyone with information on
either of these cases is urged to
contact the Live Oak Police De-
partment Criminal Investigation
Division at 386-362-7463.

Cave

percent is mental and 10
percent physical," Or-
lowsky said.
Orlowsky has had some
close calls in caves, but
said he is rarely scared.
"Sometimes I get scared,"
Orlowsky said. "I had some
rocks fall on me in a cave
in Mexico pinning me to
the floor. I was scared
then."
Orlowsky said mind
games play with you when
you're really deep inside a
system. That's called the
time/stress factor.
"I teach my students to
listen to it," Orlowsky said.
"As soon as something
feels wrong mentally or
physically, turn around."
That is Orlowsky's num-
ber-one rule in cave diving.
Turn around, don't dive if
anything feels wrong.
"Call off the dive," Or-
lowsky said. "The cave isn't
going anywhere."
There are other rules.
When teaching cave diving,
Orlowsky says he stresses


safety first. He also teaches
divers to care for the cave
systems and how not to
damage the caves.
There is a lot of special
equipment used in cave
diving that is not regularly
used in open-water diving.
Cave divers always use two
tanks, always carry three
light sources (remember
caves are really, really
dark), they always use two
regulators with a seven-foot
long hose on the second"
one in case the need to
share arises. Cave divers
always carry three reels of
line. Many of Suwannee's
caves have permanent
guide lines, but every diver
ties off to something at the
mouth of the cave and reels
line out as they go into the
system just in case the
lights go out. A diver can
find his way back to the en-
trance by following the
line. Divers always carry
two small knives in case
their lines get tangled.
Cave divers also wear a
wrist-mounted computer.
Open water divers some-


times wear one, but Cave
divers use this as standard
equipment. The computer
monitors bottom time,
depth, decompression status
and the gases being
breathed. Technical divers
also wear this devise as
standard equipment. Tech-
nical divers dive in deep
water, dive wrecks and use
helium mixes.
Orlowsky has taken his
passion for cave diving
around the world. He's
dived caves in France,
Mexico Belize,. Guatemala,
Venezuela and the
Caribbean Islands. The
deepest and largest caves to
be dived are in Mexico. "
Even though the caves in
Suwannee aren't the deepest
or the longest, what makes
them special are the flows.
Suwannee's cave systems
offer all types of caves, but
because all of Suwannee's
caves occur around the riv-
er or a spring, water flows
into and out.of the caves..
This flow makes the diving.
more challenging and offers
students of cave diving a


chance to learn diving in
flowing water.
Orlowsky says the flow
makes all the difference
and is a major factor in one
of cave diving's most dan-
gerous aspects silting.
That's when the loose mate-
rial at the bottom of the
cave gets disturbed and sur-
rounds the diver like a
cloud. Divers take all kinds
of precautions to avoid silt-
ing such as swimming with
knees bent and flippers up
or swimming with tiny lit-
tle movements of the flip-
pers.
Suwannee has systems
where water flows very
hard out of the spring mak-
ing it hard to enter the
caves. There are also caves
where the water flows in,
due to the river. There are
no-flow caves and high-
flow caves. It all makes
diving difficult and inter-
esting.
Because of the danger of
cave diving, there are no
open-water divers allowed
in Suwannee's cave sys-
tems. Divers have to take


special classes, and that's
where Orlowsky comes in,
to become certified in cave
diving. Even after becom-
ing certified, divers can
only enter some caves if
they have a certain number
of recorded dives to their
credit. Peacock Springs,
now a state park, has a
ranger whochecks all certi-
ficatiori before divers are
allowed in the system.
There have been many
fatalities in cave diving.
The most famous cave div-
er, Sheck Exley, was a math
teacher at Suwannee High.
Exley died in 1994 trying
to descend to 1,000 feet in.
Zacatan Cave, Mexico. Ex-
ley was a pioneer in deep-
water diving and in cave
diving.
According to Orlowsky,
lack of training is the cause
of almost every cave diving
death in Suwannee County.
Orlowsky said, 95 percent
of the divers killed in
Suwannee County were un-
trained in cave diving. Or-
lowsky should'knot. he's
participated in 'eight body


recoveries. "One I pulled
out last year was trained in
cavern diving, daylight
zone," Orlowsky said. "He
was in 1,300 feet. His-
gages showed he'd been in
depths of 180 feet. I found
him at 50 feet where he'd
run out of air. He had a line
" but he was lost."
In.only one instance-has
Orlowsky gone on a body
recovery and found the
cave diver alive. In 1991 he
got a call from Venezuela.
He was taken to a cave sys-
tem in Venezuela by private
Lear jet. Hefound the diver
alive, breathing air in an air
pocket after he'd been lost
for 36 hours. There are no
air pockets in Suwannee r
County caves. At times,
divers have seen air at the
top of caves, taken off their
regulators and tried to
breath the air only to die
from breathing poisonous
methane gas accumulated at
the top of the cave. Cave
diving is dangerous.

cave diving in future issues
of the Suwannee Democrat.

upper-class midshipmen
are responsible for the
,-education and training of
the Honor Concept. Mid-
shipmen found in viola-
tion of the Honor Con-
cept by their peers may
be separated from' the
.Naval Academy.
! Every midshipman's

'acdean/ program.html"


academic program be-
gins with a core curricu-
lum that includes cours-
es in engineering, sci-
ence, mathematics, hu-
manities and social sci-
ence. This is designed to
provide a broad-based
education that will quali-
fy the midshipmen for
practically any career
field in the Navy or Ma-
rine Corps. At the same
time, our majors pro-


gram gives them the op-
portunity to develop a
particular area of acade-
mic interest. For espe-
cially capable and highly
motivated students, we
offer challenging honors
programs and opportuni-
ties to start work on
postgraduate degrees
while still at the Acade-
my.
The Academy also pro-
v i d e s


"http:/ /www.usna.edu/
ProDev" professional
and leadership training.
We don't just teach the
students about life in the
Navy and Marine Corps.
After four years at the
Naval Academy, the life
and customs of the naval
service become 'second
nature. First, the mid-
shipmen learn to take or-
ders from practically
everyone, but before


long, they acquire the re-
sponsibility for making
decisions that can affect
. hundreds of other mid-
shipmen. The profession-
al classroom studies are
backed by many hours of
practical experience in
leadership and naval op-
erations, including as-
signments with Navy
and Marine Corps units.
A scholarship to the
US Naval Academy is


valued at over a quarter
of a million dollars, and
a diploma from the
Academy carries with it
privileges and prestige
surpassed by no other
university in the world.

know would like more

There is a long-standing debate among
philosophers concerning the nature of
freedom. The positions on this issue range
from those who claim we are nothing more
than machines (and thus freedom is
merely an illusion), to those who claim
that our actions are completely
undetermined by nature or nurture, and
thus that we are radically free. As usual in
philosophical debates, the truth most
probably lies somewhere in the middle.
Our behavior is determined to some
degree by our inherited constitution and
by our upbringing, and yet in most
circumstances, those factors don't compel
us to act in any particular way. As humans
we can choose not to do the habitual or
expected thing, however difficult this may
be. And, we actually "prove" our freedom
most when we resist the inclination to do
wrong and force ourselves instead to do
what is right. While the greatest hindrance
to our freedom is the belief that we are
just cogs in a wheel whose movements are
determined by forces beyond our control,
perhaps the greatest boon to our freedom
is the belief that we are indeed free, and
the resolution to always make good use of
it. Therefore, we should believe that we are
free, and we will be.

Watch and pray that you may not enter
into temptation; the spirit indeed is
willing, but the flesh is weak.
R.S.V Matthew 26:41

Are you listening!


Have you ever
asked a child, "Are
you listening?" Je-
remiah was sent to
the people with a
message. "All His
(God's) servants the
prophets" (Jeremi-
ah 25:3, 4) went un-
heeded. No one was
David H. Matier paying them any
mind. And just like
Israel of old, America is neglecting the
message of those who God has raised up
in this generation (John 3:19). AMERI-
CAN IS NOT LISTENING! If this coun-
try is listening, how did it get into the sit-
uation that she finds herself in today? No


public prayer in our public schools. No
Christ in Christmas. The Ten Command-
ments cannot be put on display on public
property. There are those who want "In
God we Trust" removed from our
coinage and "under God" removed from
the pledge of allegiance to our nation. All
of the vestiges of Christianity are being
removed from the public arena. God's
people appear to be helpless against the
onslaught of the Devil. As a pastor once
said, "Many are saying America is head-
ing for judgment." We are already being
judged!"
Today the atheists appear to be win-
ning. Could this be the result of God's
people not listening? God's people not
listening to God speak through His


anointed today?
What did you do with your children
when they refused to listen? What do you
think God may be doing to His children
(Hebrews 12:5-8)? A father who would
not correct his children would be consid-
ered neglectful. God would not be Him-
self if He overlooks the sin of His people.
If God were to continue to allow His chil-
dren to disobey He would have to, and I
say this reverently, apologize to past civ-
ilizations. His judgment must fall be-
cause He is always the same (Hebrews
13:8)!-Are you listening? What do you
hear?

Customers who lose power should
contact SVEC. When the call is
answered,, the location of the outage is
recorded automatically by SVEC
automated outage-reporting system.
Customers can also speak directly to a
company representative if available.
SVEC brings in additional employees
to respond to customer calls during
major storms, and it has dramatically
increased the number of incoming d
telephone lines for its outage-
reporting system. But customers may A
experience busy signals and longer- W/
than-normal waits during times of
high call volumes. 4

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


*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 can cause damage to your equipment
and can be a life-threatening danger to your family, neighbors and
repair crews. Be sure to have adequate fuel for your generator and
manage consumption by running it for only a few hours at a time.
* Prepare a list of essential Items you would need In case you are
evacuated from your home and have them readily available. Some of
these items could include medications, Insulin, contact
lenses/supplles, 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.

Summertime and the living' is... busy.


(ARA) Traditionally,
summertime is
considered a more
relaxing time. But as
moms know well, as soon
as they hear the words
"schools out for
summer," the livin' can
be anything but easy.
While kids take it easy
throughout the summer,
moms have to step up to
the plate, dishing up
meals and planning
activities.
Moms know it can be
more difficult getting
kids to stick to a routine
during sumniertime than
the school year, and
especially hard to corral
their children to sit down
for a meal. When kids are
basking in the hot
summer sun, playing
games, swimming and
riding bikes, they don't
always want to interrupt
the good time they're
having outside to come
inside for something
good to eat.
When summertime
livin' becomes all too.
busy, moms need quick,
convenient mealtime
solutions with the flavor
and variety of foods kids
love, and the wholesome
nutrition moms know
their kids need. "Kid
Cuisine is a great
mealtime savior for
stressed, time-starved
moms, because it
provides delicious,
convenient, fun food that
,with the continued fun
inside, kids will enjoy
eating. It is a real meal
made with quality
ingredients such as white


meat chicken and real
cheese kids will really eat
and with many essential
nutrients, moms can feel
good about serving," said
John Plaso, marketing
director, Kid Cuisine.

New Grip-n-Dip Chicken
Strips Bound to Be a
Favorite
Kids love dipping into
the new Kid Cuisine
Grip-n-Dip Chicken
Strips meal. Chicken is
one of the most popular
kid-favorite foods, and
these chicken strips make
it more interactive and
fun by letting kids easily
grip and dip into the
barbecue dipping sauce.
The meal also features a
portable fruit smoothie
dessert made with real
strawberries that kids can
'shake, rattle and roll at
home or can take with,.
them on the go.
The new Grip-n-Dip
Chicken Strips meal joins
other kid favorites such
as All Star Chicken
Nuggets, Pop Star
Popcorn Chicken,
Cheeseburger Builder
and Cheese Blaster
Macaroni and Cheese.
The 14 meal varieties
microwave in about five
minutes, range in size
from 6.5 ounces to 10.6
ounces, depending on the
meal, and offer the
variety to keep even the'
most finicky young eater
.satisfied all summer long.
Summertime Family
Fun
Whether it's mealtime
or anytime, variety really
is the spice of life. This
summer, try one of the
following activities to
add variety to your busy ,


. ... ... ..-


schedules and keep kids'
bodies and mifids active.
Moms and kids alike will
enjoy the extra family
time. .
Eat outside. Switch up
your mealtime routine by.
moving the meal 'to the
backyard or porch.
Explore the-world
around you. Set out on a
"nature'hike" around
your neighborhood. Take
a shopping bag with you
to collect any "treasures"
you find along the way.
Upon your return, create
a picture with the leaves
arid flowers you find.
Dancer-size! If the
weather doesn't allow for
outdoor fun, turn on the
radio and start dancing!
Move from room to room,
cleaning and
straightening up as you
go. Be sure to slow down
if you're around
windows or other
breakables. The kids will
love showing off their
moves they won't even
realize they're '
completing chores. And
everyone gets a workout!
Exercise the mind.
Create activities that are
engaging, interactive and
keep__Lhe mind in shape,
such as planting a
summer garden,
researching your family's
history, writing stories or.


joining a book club.

Mom "Me Time"
To keep from getting
overwhelmed, it is
suggested that moms
invest in regular mom
"me time" time moms,
take for themselves. After
all, mom (and dad)
should be able to enjoy
summertime too. Some
ideas:
Share the love! Rotate
child-care duties among
other neighborhood
parents once a week to
give everyone a little
more time,.
Incorporate ready-to-
eat meals into the
family's weekly menu.
This allows moms to free
up time normally taken
by mealtime preparation
.for other activities.
Give dad his share of
duties! Let dads take the
kids once a week (or even
more often) so moms can
have a morning,
afternoon or night out.
Rise and shine! Set
your alarm clock an hour
earlier in the morning.
Use the extra time to
enjoy a cup of coffee,.
read the paper or check e-
mail.
