Florida Sheriffs name Rod Smith One


Legislator of the Year


The Florida Sheriffs As-
sociation named State Sena-
tor Rod Smith the 2006 re-
cipient of their Outstanding
Legislator of the Year
Award.
"Rod Smith has shown a
career-long commitment to
protecting our communities
and to law enforcement per-
sonnel and their families,"
said Baker County Sheriff
Joey Dobson. "He has dis-
played not only vision, but
also determination and ef-
fectiveness, in .his efforts to
protect the freedom and
safety of all Floridians."
Sen. Smith is widely rec-
ognized for being one of
Florida's leading champions
of law enforcement and for
creating innovative pro-
grams to combat and pre-
vent crime. Rod Smith's
strong anti-crime record
also includes serving two
terms as State Attorney.
Recognizing that employ-
ees throughout the sheriff's
office work in areas that are
high risk, Senator Smith has
repeatedly filed and sup-
ported. legislation that
would expand the classifi-
cation of high-risk employ-
ees.
In 2004, he was co-spon-


sor of amending the Baker
Act to reduce the risk of
death or injury of law en-
forcement officials involved
in the apprehension of indi-
viduals who might harm
themselves or others.
Additionally, many of the
programs that individual
sheriffs had created and
promoted were protected,
and often enhanced, -under
Sen. Smith's leadership in
transforming the court sys-
tem from county-based to
state-based.
"I am honored and grate-
ful for this award," said
Sen. Smith, "and I pledge
that I will continue to earn
the trust and support of
Florida's fine law enforce-
ment personnel."
Sen. Smith's campaign
has received strong support
from the law enforcement
community, including en-
dorsements from the fol-
lowing sheriffs: Tony
Cameron, Suwannee Coun-
ty Sheriff; Jeff Dawsey, Cit-
rus County Sheriff; Joey

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: Is it okay to use cosmetic procedures to
cover unsightly teeth?
A: There's nothing wrong with wanting your
teeth to look as good as they can. Your
dentist can tell you about any number of
steps you can take to enhance your smile.
But the popularity of some reality TV
makeover shows has made some people
think that a cosmetic procedure can be the
way to fix a problem. If you are unhappy with
the appearance of your teeth or with some
other aspectt of your dental status, talk with
your dentist about the steps you might take.
A cosmetic procedure might not address
the underlying cause of a problem.
Application of veneers, instance, which
requires removal of enamel, might not be the
right solution to an appearance problem. The
underlying cause 'may be a misalignment
that actually should be addressed through
orthodontia, the use of braces to move the
teeth. In some cases, application of veneers
or bleaching or any number of other
cosmetic treatments 'may be entirely
appropriate. Consult With your dentist about
,the options that are available and about
which are best for your particular case.

Questions about eggs


B Me'redthli Tal'oi: CED. Siniuanne Coun-
n E~utsion Senn ice
In their active adults newsletter, the
American Egg Board has a Sharing Cor-
ner. There are some pretty interesting
questions that come up. Here are a cou-
ple, along with their answers. \We get
similar questions in the E\tension Ser-
vice Office.
Q: Help, please! My refrigerator got
too cold and my eggs froze. Can I use
them?
A: If eggs in their shells accidentally
become frozen, it's best to discard any
that have cracked shells. Keep an) eggs
with intact shells frozen until you need
them, then thaw them in the refrigera-
tor. Use eggs with intact shells immedi-
ately after they're thawed. You can sep-
arate thawed whites and yolks and use
them in any recipe. You can also hard
cook both yolks and whole eggs.
However, if \our yolks froze in the
shell-\ithout the addition of sugar, corn
syrup or salt-they may partially or
wholly gel. depending on how long and
how solidly the eggs were frozen. Gela-
bon ma\ make it difficult for you to
e\venl beat thawed yolks or whole eggs
and combine them with other ingredi-

ents. This can impart the yolks' or whole
eggs' performance in some recipes. To
see if your eggs might be useful for 'otur
intended recipe, break each thawed
whole egg indiMidually, separating the
yolk. it" you like. If the yolk appears nor-
mal to the eye, beat the yolk or whole
egg to gauge the yolk's fluidity before
using it in a recipe.
Q: Oops ... by mistake I left a carton
of eggs out in the car trunk all night.
Will they be okay to eat if I refrigerate
them now?
A: Sorry. Unless the interior of your
car trunk was quite cold-40 degrees F. or
lower-all the while the eggs were in it.
you should throw out the eggs along
\ith any other perishable foods that
\\ere inadvertently left in the trunk, too.
The same is true for raw eggs in the
shell. egg mixtures and cooked egg
dishes left out on a kitchen counter or
table. USDA's ride for all perishable
foods-meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs,
milk foods and cooked vegetables-is no
more than tho hours at room tempera-
ture.
It you have questions about storing
eggs or other foods, give the Extension
Service a call at 386-3t2-2771.

Damon Deas named Florida Farmer of the Year 2006


By the time Damon
Deas reached the grand
old age of six-years-old,
he knew what he wanted
-to be-a farmer. At eight-
years-old, he was already
driving the Farmall trac-
tor, pulling the tobacco
sled.
"My .younger brother,
Roger, and I enjoyed
working on the farm and
growing up as country
boys," said Deas. "My
love for farming grew un-
til it was impossible for
me to get farming out ,of
my blood or dirt from un-
der my fingernails."
He left the grass roots
education after high
school as his father insist-
ed on a college education.
By the time 1974 rolled
around, however, he' was
back on the farm as a full
partner and led the orga-
nization of Deas Brothers
Farms in 1985.
'Steady and successful
growth of Deas Farms
plus making major
changes in the operation
over the years have led to
Deas being selected as the


2006 Swisher
Sweets/Sunbelt Expo
Southeastern Farmer of
the Year for Florida. He
was selected for the hon-
or in judging conducted'
by the Florida Farm Bu-
reau and was nominated
by Dan Buchanan.
Deas now joins eight
other Southeastern state
winners as a finalist for
the Swisher Sweets/Sun-
belt Expo Southeastern
Farmer 'of the Year
Award for 2006, which
will be announced during
'the Sunbelt Expo in
Moultrie, Ga., on Tues-
day, Oct. 17: .
As the Florida state
winner, Deas will receive
a $2,500 cash award and
an expanse paid trip to
the Sunbelt Expo from
Swisher International of
Jacksonville, a jacket and
a $200 gift certificate from
the Williamson-Dickie
Company, a commemo-
rative fireproof home safe
from Misty Morn Safe Co.
and a $500 gift certificate
from Southern States. He
is also now eligible for the


$14,000 that will go the
overall winner and .the
use of a.Massey Ferguson
tractor for a year from
Massey. Ferguson North
America.
Swisher International,
through its Swisher
Sweets cigar brand, and
the.: Sunbelt Expo are
sponsoring the Southeast-
em Farmer of the Year
Award for.the 17th con-
secutive year. Swisher
has contributed over
$700,000 in cash awards
and other honors since
the award was initiated in.
1990.
His selection also marks
the second time he has
been chosen as the Flori-
da state 'winner. Many
positive and successful.
changes have been made
in the operation since he'
was originally chosen in
2000.
"We have added
peanuts. Plus, we were
very scattered and had to-
bacco in about 20 loca-
tions," said Deas, who is
the last farmer in Hamil-
ton County growing to-


bacco. "Now, everything
is all together. In 2002, my
brother .and I convinced
Dad to sell out our brood
cow and calf herds in or-
der to purchase replace-'
ment heifers to breed and
sell yearly."
The operation, which
has grown from 1,322
acres to over 2,650 acres
under his leadership, has
300 :acres of irriga ted to-
bacco, yielding 1,850 .
pounds per acre. There's
also 450 acres of field
corn, yielding 120 bushels
per acre, 45 acres of hay,
producing six tons per
acre and 280 acres of cow
peas, yielding 20 bushels
.per acre. The recently
added peanuts cover 650
acres with a yield of 3,100
pounds per acre.,
The : cattle operation
now includes 100 head of
crossbreed beef cows and
700 head of crossbreed
heifers. ;
"Our plans to increase
tobacco 'operations are
implemented," said Deas.
"Plans for a -box- loading
system are in place plus


we also intend to increase
our grain storage capacity
to another 50,000 bushels.
And we \ill iricrease our
cattle production."
Deas' wife Becky .has'
also been involved in the
operation during their 26
years of marriage. They,
ha\ e two sons, Daniel, 19,
and Zach, 12. "It's -my
dream they will:continue
our family farm tradi-
tion," says Deas,

VIEWPOINTS & OPINIONS


BIBLE VERSE

"For the Lord takes delight in His
people; He crowns the humble
with salvation." Psalm 149:4

C. Regan, publisher, and Susan K.

Managing Editor, View is formed by that board.


LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Dear Editor:
On July 18, the Rod Smith for Governor Campaign
made a stop at the Train Depot in Live Oak as part of
our "Straight Talk-Real Change' bus tour of Florida.
Greeted by over 250 enthusiastic supporters, and a
delicious plate of chicken pilau, Sen. Smith inspired
everyone in attendance with his plans to improve: the
quality of education, health care and insurance in the
state of Florida. Our thanks go to all of the commu-
nity members who took time to attend, and to those
who' helped make the event successful, including
Rep. Dwight Stansel and the many local elected offi-
cials who came out to verbally endorse Sen. Smith,
David and Cheryle Chandler, Charles Thomas and
the Dixie Grill, the Suwannee County Historical Mu-
seum, The Music Center, the Suwannee Valley Bar-
bershop Chorus and the Suwannee County and Co-
lumbia County Democratic Executive Committees.
The bus tour would not have been the great success
.it was without the enthusiasm and hard work of our
friends and supporters throughout the state.
After representing the citizens of North Florida for
the past 14 years as State Attorney and Senator, it has
recently come to our attention that a few politically
driven ideologues in the greater Suwannee area are
publicly questioning Senator Smith's stance on same-
sex marriage. In some instances, they are suggesting
that Rod. is in favor of changing Florida's laws on
marriage. Last week a writer to the "Rants and
Raves" section of your newspaper directly inquired
as to Rod Smith's position on this issue.
As Rod's son-in-law, and a Lutheran pastor in
Chiefland, let me reiterate what Rod has always be-
lieved about ,the marriage laws in Florida-they'
should remain as they are. In other words, Sen. Smith
believes that marriage should continue to be recog--
nized as the laws of Florida currently affirm.
While e recognize that a select few may continue :
to try and distort Rod's public record, Sen. Smith re- :
mains committed to talking about and governing on
the issues that matter to our families-education,
health care and insurance. With the support of
Suwannee County and North Florida, we look for-
ward to making Rod's vision for our state reality.
Sincerely,
Rev. Graham B. Glover

Dear Editor:.
Our state constitution requires. the, Florida
Supreme Court to. determine if the boundaries of the
state's District Courts of Appeal (DCA) need to be
adjusted. And the public.has a role to play,
Some people may not know these five courts even
exist. But the DCAs are a critically important part of
Florida's judicial branch. In fact, in the vast majority
of appeals, they are the courts of last resort. ,
Florida's high court has regularly reviewed the dis-
trict courts since they were first created half a centu-
ry ago. Earlier this year the Supreme Court created
an eight-year review cycle and directed the commit-
tee of judges and attorneys conducting the current
review to seek input from the public.
The goal of the review, according to the Supreme'
Court, is to "ensure that our district courts of appeal".
"continue.-to dispense justice in a t i mely' and efficient
manner that meets the needs of our people.
Now's the time to speak up. On-line surveys can be
found at www.flcourts.org until Aug. 15 and take
only a few minutes to fill out. It really couldn't be
easier.
Here's the kind of question the survey asks: Do you'
think appeals are handled efficiently? Do you under-
stand the court's decisions? Do you think they are
fair and based on the law?
If people want to do. more. than fill out a survey,
' they should, mark their calendars 'for Sept. 7, when
the review committee will hold a public hearing in
Orlando.
I hope your readers consider this survey another.
opportunity to practice the thoughtful citizenship we
are all called on to practice when we vote, serve on a
jury and keep current with events in our communi-
ties and our world.

Gregory S. Parker

COMMENTARY

Just a few items from the fat folder


When you write columns for news-
papers, you tend to collect a lot of
stuff that people pass onto you -
sayings, stories, inside information,
advice and wisdoin. After a while
That folder gets pretty thick, and I feel
-compelled to sharesoime of that stuff.
SYou might notice that I listed "ad-'
Vice" and "wisdom" as two separate
Dwain Walden items.. Sometimes;they may be the
same but not always. It's kind of like
.:"intelligence" and "wisdom," at some point they may
overlap but not always. I've noted this before in this col-
umn, but I'll do it again because I can't think of a better.
example to illustrate the difference. It was passed onto
me by my dad many years ago.
.He said intelligence is knowing that a mule is a hy-
brid. Wisdom is knowing not to walk up behind him
and slap him on the rump.
Many of the gems passed onto me can be serious food
for thought and some of it is just to break up a hectic day
with a light moment. I tend to share more of the latter.
One of the latest that comes.into iy folder is from one
of my colleagues. A bu rglar had broken into a house at
.: night and was busy filling his sack with valuables. From
out of the darkness came a voice that said, "Jesus is
Watching you."
The burglar was startled. He shone his light around
the room. Nothing. He thought it was his imagination.
So he went back to crammingthithings into his sack. Again
came the voice, "Jesus is watching you."
Again he shone his light, and over in the corner sat a
'parrot on his roost. He walked over to the parrot and
asked, "Was that you talking?"
The parrot said, "Yes. It was rie, Moses.".
The burglar snickered and said, "Who would name a
parrot Moses?"
The parrot said, "The same people who named their
Rottweiler Jesus."
My first thought when I heard that story was that the


burglar should have asked himself in that situation:
"What would Jesus do?"
I've often posed that people do what they have to do
when their ox is iin the ditch and when it's just them,
God and the issue. I'm convinced that sometimes reli-:
gion and/or politics get re-interpreted just a bit when
the world hands you the equivalent of fire ants on a jel-
ly sandwich. .
Arnd for that illustration, there was a Quaker who0:
heard'a noise one night downstairs in his den. He got his
shotgun :and flashlight and inched his way down the
stairs to investigate. There in the darkness he found an
intruder sacking up some of his belongings.
So he said to the intruder: "MyN brother, I would not
hurt thee for the world. But thou standest where I'm
about to shoot."
I'm assuming Quakers don't have Rottewielers named
Jesus. They've got shotguns named Samson.
Some of the stuff passed on to me is meant to give life
perspective, One fellow told me that he went into a bar
along with a Jew, a Catholic, a Baptist and a Hindu.
'Above the bar was a sign that read, "If you drink to for-
get, please pay in advance." That was all he said.
So I asked him what .did the Jew, Catholic, Baptist and
Hindu have to do with anything. He said he just threw
them in to hold my attention, and to promote together-
ness. He said he would have included a Democrat and a
'Republican, but he didn't want to mess up good liquor
with'politics.
Recently I wrote about a sign I saw in a seafood restau-
rant. It said, "Unruly children will.be used for bait."
Someone sent to me'a similar thought that was seen
somewhere in a Pottery Barn: "If your child is left unat-
tended, he will be given a large box of chocolates and a
puppy."
On that note, I've often wondered why there are no
laws dealing with "cruelty to parents."

Q What is Alkali Burn?


A Alkali or pH burn is a condition that occurs
concrete is too fresh (New). been
A improperly hydrated, or an improper
formulation \\as used. This causes the breakdown of
oil-based or vinyl-acrylic based coatings binders.
When using 100% Acrylic coating tinted with organic
colorants, it will result in color loss due to the colorants
reaction with the lime in the concrete mix. Color loss
and deterioration of the coating film is most likely to
occur when. coatings are.prematurely applied to
masonry surfaces that are less than one year old. After
the above have cured, and moisture being introduced
into these substrates ,may cause efflorescence,
blistering and peeling of the coating film due to the
reactivation of high alkalinity. A pH reading of 7-10
will allow for improved coating success.

Living with Parkinson's Disease
Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a neuromuscular disorder which results
from the loss of brain cells that produce dopamine (one of body's.
neurotransmitters). As a result of this loss, there are four major
symptoms that occur trembling in the hands, arms, legs, and face;
rigidity of the arms and legs as well as the trunk; a slowing of body
movement; and instability of body posture which occurs as imbalance
and lack of coordination.
Exercise may help make it easier to live with this condition since
activity will often improve mobility, muscle tone, and range of motion.
Improving muscle strength often improves confidence and the ability to
.move. Short naps may help improve energy. Purchasing clothes that
require less zipping and buttoning will help if the conditions progresses
and the skills to do these things become diminished. Physical therapy
may be prescribed. Medications that help restore the lost dopamine from
the brain can provide dramatic relief of symptoms. Levadopa is the
primary drug prescribed. In the body, it is converted to dopamine by.
nerve cells. It is combined with another drug called Caridopa, which
causes more of the levadopa to get to the brain. Other drugs such as
Eldepryl (Selegiline) are also used. A relatively new drug called Azilect
blocks the breakdown of dopamine. 285091-F

"This was our most successful event

SThe "Bash" was designed with the
'idea of helping local needy families
with the expense of going back to

The arrest came after
Barrs was dispatched at
about 1:50 a.m. toa resi-
dence in reference to a ver-
bal disturbance, according
to the Sheriffs office. When
Barrs arrived, he observed a
woman walking down the
road in front of the resi-
dence. She told the deputy
that she had begun a verbal
argument with Tharpe and
left the residence rather
than continue the argument.
She informed the officer
that although Tharpe had
not been violent with her,


there was an open warrant '
on him in Columbia Coun-
ty. Deputy Barrs entered.the
residence and found Tharpe
,asepep op the,.couch, ac-
cording io the Sheriffs Of-
fice. Barrs said Tharpe
shoved him in the chest.
when Barrs approached
Tharpe with the handcuffs
and that Tharpe attempted
to. run, according.to the
Sheriffs Office. The deputy
ran after Tharpe and
brought him under control
in the back yard.
Tharpe was taken to the

Bank of America wins prestigious


statewide community award


First financial services
institution honored in
10 year history of the
award
Leadership Florida an-
nounced recently that
Bank of America received
the 2006 Leadership Flori-
da Statewide Community
Award for their dedica-
tion and leadership in ad-
vancing critical issues in
local communities and
throughout the state of
Florida. Bank of America
is the first financial ser-
vices institution recipient
since the award program
commenced 10 years ago.
"The philanthropic,
community development
and volunteer resources
that Bank of America in-
vests in Florida not only
create jobs, improve edu-
cation and build afford-
able housing, they help
transform uiider-er -ed
and long neglected blocks
into vibrant and safe:
neighborhoods," said
Leadership Florida Presi-
dent Wendy Abberger.
"Corporations like Bank
of America are critical to
achieving our mission of
Building a diverse net-
work of leaders commit-
ted to bettering our com-
munities."
In 2005, the bank donat-
ed more than $9.5 million
to non-profit organiza-
tions in Florida and em-
barked on a five-year goal
to provide $36 billion in
community development
investment and lending
"projects focusing on afL
fordable housing. In addi-
tion, through Team Bank
of America, bank associ-
ates in Florida have vol-
unteered thousands of
hours to improving low-
income neighborhoods
and other community
projects.
"Bank of America is
committed to promoting
neighborhood excellence
in the communities in
which.our associates and
customers live, work and
pursue their dreams-.
through corporate philan-
thropy, community devel-
opment investment and
lending and active volun-
teerism," said Robb Hil-
son, Florida market presi-
dent for Bank of America.

ored to have received this

coveted award from Lead-
ership Floi ida, an organi-
zation which, has con-
tributed so much to ad-
\ancing the quality of life
for many Floridians."
Based on a national
philanthropic strategy to
promote "neighborhood
excellence," Bank of
America works to identify
critical issues in local
communities and direct
resources to address those
priorities. The bank's sig-.
nature philanthropic pro-
grafh, the Neighborhood
Excellence Initiative
(NEI), recognizes and re-
wards individuals and or-
'ganizations that are mak-
ing a significant impact in
their communities with
"unrestricted funds"
which can be used to over
operating expenses and
build program capacity.
Since the program's in-
ception, Bank of America
has donated $5.4 million
to non-profit organiza-
tions in seven markets
across the state.
In distressed, urban ar-
eas where business and
'development have slowed
or ceased, Bank of Ameri-,
ca partners with local
non-profit and, communi-

tions to reinvigorate busi-
ness and residential de-
velopments and provide

health and welfare of the
local residents. Recently,
the bank spea headed the
renovation of a historic
building in downtown
Tampa, Centro Place, into
facility with 160 afford-
able rental units and a
community center for se-
niors earning as little as
35 percent of the median
income.
To highlight volunteer
efforts by Bank of Ameri-
ca, earlier this year, dur-
ing a national meeting
held in Naples, Bank of
America associates spent
a day refurbishing and
distributing 200 bicycles,
to children served by the
local Habitat for Humani-
ty and Redland Christian
Migrant Farmworkers As-
sociation.
"Bank of America's fi-
nancial commitment com-
bined with the.philosophy
for.associates to be highly
engaged with their fami-
lies and communities,
serves as a model not only
for the financial services
industry but for all corpo-
rations throughout Flori-
da," said Doug Sessions,
chair of Leadership Flori-

"The role Bank of Ameri-

with a shotgun, according to the
Alachua County Sheriff's Of-
fice (ACSO). The victims told
law enforcement that Rodgers
demanded that they drive him
from the area, the ACSO said.
Rodgers was taken to the area
of his residence, where he ap-
parently took another vehicle
and drove to Suwannee County
where he made contact with his
estranged wife, friends and
even law enforcement via cell
phone, the ACSO said.
Rodgers was taken into cus-
tody without incident after a
standoff on Bulb Farm Road,
according to Suwannee County
SheriffTony Cameron. "We
called the man on the phone


.when we got there,-but it didn't
do a lot of good," Cameron
said. "So, I just kept easing
closer and finally went up there
and talked with him," he said.
Cameron said he eased over to
the van that was parked at the
man's father's home, put his
hand on his arm and asked him
to step out of his van. "And, he
did," Cameron said. -
"He was just very upset...he
knew what he had done and
knew he was facing great con-
sequences," Cameron said. "He
told me he had five'children
and didn't want to go to
prison."
ACSO said Rodgers was also
questioned concerning the at-
tack on the driver of a parked
tractor-trailer that occurred at

itoring the situation, thinking the
teen was using his home, com-
puter As it turned out, it was the
library's computer.
Sometime in June the teen al-
legedly sent an e-mail asking the
officer he believed to be a porn
producer to travel to Live Oak
and take photos of the teen hav-
ing sex with what the officer
had told him would be his 12-
year-old niece. The teen negoti-
ated a price the supposed porn
producer would pay him for thed
video, Shaw said. On July 1, the.
teen allegedly.sent 65 child
pornography photos to the offi-
cer he said he received from


- .


England, Shaw said. The teen,
Shaw said, then told the officer
he was actually 14 and provided
a social security number that
turned out not to be his but be-
longs to a Pensacola resident.
Shaw said the teen made
arrangements for which motel
where the officer to meet him
for the rendezi ous he allegedly
thought was about to happen
and was waiting \ hen a person
he thought was his contact
sho\ ed up. That contact was ac-
tually LOPD Officer Casey Kin-
sey, who had reviewed the e-
mails and knewd the case.
Shaw said after the teen was
told who Officer Kinsey really
was, he admitted that he went to
the motel specifically to be
videotaped having sex with a
12-year-old girl and that he had
sent the pornographic photos
over the Internet.
Because he is not being


charged as an adult, the teen's

emergency generators to ensure a continuous flow

and other appliances. SVEC urges residents to
exercise extreme caution. While generators are a

storm-related outages, they can also create hazards
for homeowners and electric utility workers.

According to a recent survey by the American Lung
Association, 90% of homeowners polled were not aware that
exposure to poor indoor air quality can lead to major health
problems. Results from the study proved that the concept of
indoor air pollution remains relatively ambiguous to most
homeowners.
Gerry Gagnon, Product and Market Manager for Venmar
Ventilation, the leader in state-of-the-art air ventilation systems,
explains: "Most people feel safe in their homes and simply put,
affiliate air toxins with the outdoor en\ ironmeni, particularly
withconcern for acid rain, ozone, smog etc. Overall, little
emphasis is placed on the possibility of indoor-health related
illness, except in regard to the ambient air or toxic exposures in
the work place."
Despite this commonly held belief; there is now growing
evidence that indoor air pollution can adversely affect human ,
health. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has
determined that indoor pollution may be 100 times higher than
pollution outside.
Today's well-insulated homes only exacerbate the problem as
they often lack the ability to "breathe" freely. Changes in
construction methods driven by energy and efficiency issues
since the 1970s, combined with traditional construction
materials and finishes being used, "seal inside" the allergens.
irritants, and toxins, driving the astronomical iiicreases in
respiratory disorders being seen today.:
Different homes have different problem areas. For some
homes, it might be as serious as high humidity ii the attic that's
eating its way through the roof; while for others it might be
simply a poorly ventilated kitchen that causes unwanted
lingering odors. In most cases, homes have an overly humid
basement that breeds molds and other unhealthy micro-
organisms.
According to a recent report by the Commission for.
Environmental Co-operation, asthma rates among children in.
North America are now four times higher than they were 20
years ago..
Experts believe the reason for these staggering increases in
respiratory illness have to do with the fact that we spend 90% of
.our,time indoors., surrounded b\ a vast array-of indoor-pollutant
sources. High amounts of chemicals. smoke, moisture, allergens
and molds, can contribute to indoor air pollution and are linked
to a series of lung problems such as asthma, chemical
sensitivities and allergies.
As it stands, it is up to the homeowner to contend with health
problems attributed to indoor air pollution. According to
Gagnon, the most assured and practical way to clean indoor air

is. to invest in an air exchanger system that will filter out harmful
pollutants and distribute fresh air throughout the home.
The latest technology in indoor air management is Venmar's air
exchangers which combine the benefits of both HEPA filtration and
ventilation. "This system evacuates polluted indoor air and replaces
it with fresh, filtered, outdoor air by trapping airborne allergens such
as pollen. dust, pet dander mold and bacteria. Excess humidity
during the cold season as well as harmful gaseous pollutants not
trapped by the system's HEPA filter are also drawn outside and
eliminated," added Gagnon. More information on indoor air quality
is available at www.venmar.ca.

The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
'Services (FDACS) recently
announced that federal safe-.
ty officials and the manufac-
turer of a marine kite tube
are working together in the
voluntary recall of 19,000 of
the devices because of their
association with numerous
injuries and two deaths.
The US Consumer Product.
Safety Commission (CPSC)
and Sportsstuff Inc., of Oma-
ha, Neb., have already
pulled the product-the
Sportsstuff Wego Kite Tube-
off the market and are now
asking consumers who have
purchased the items to im-
mediately stop using them.
Consumers who purchased
the tubes are asked to call
Sportsstuff toll-free at 866-
831-5524 to learn how to ob-
tain free replacement prod-


ucts.
The tube, which cost be-
tween $500 and $600 when
sold between last October
and earlier this month, is a
10-foot-wide circular, yel-
low, inflatable watercraft de-
signed to be towed behind a
power boat. A rider in the
tube becomes airborne by
.pulling oh handles .attached
to the tube.
According to the CPSC,
the tube has been implicated
in 39 accidents and at least
two deaths. Injuries have in-
cluded a broken neck, a
punctured lung, as well as
chest, back and facial in-
juries.
FDACS assists the CPSC in
the recall of dangerous items
by checking stores, thrift
shops and other locations'
where any such items may
remain.
