In Appreciation
Perhaps you called, or smiled,

Just thought of us that day.
Whatever you did to console

We are eternally grateful,
whatever the part.

USDA proposes change


to WIC food packages


The US Department of Agricul-
ture's Food and Nutrition Service
(FNS) recently announced proposed
changes to the Special Supplemental
Nutrition Program for Women, In-
fants and Children (WIC) food pack-
ages that reflect recommendations
made by the National Academies of
Sciences' Institute of Medicine (IOM).
The current WIC food packages
were designed to supplement partici-
pant's diets with foods rich in five nu-
trientsi-vitamin A .and C, calcium,
iron and protein-because those nutri-
ents were lacking in the diets of the'
WIC target population when the pro-
gram first began in 1974.
The proposed changes largely fol-
low recommendations made by the
IOM in the final report of its review of
the WIC food packages, "WIC Food
Packages: Time for a Change," as well
as the latest nutrition science and the
Dietary Guidelines. Under the pro-
posal, the food packages would be re-
vised to add new foods such as fruits
and vegetables and whole grains,
while amounts of some current foods
would be modified.
WIC provides pregnant, breastfeed-
ing, and postpartum women, infants
and children up to age five with nu-
tritious supplemental foods. The pro-
gram also provides nutrition educa-
tion and referrals to health and social
services. About eight million partici-
pants receive WIC benefits each
month. Federal food costs for the pro-
gram were $3.6 billion in fiscal year
2005.
Notice of this proposed rule will be
published in the Aug. 7 Federal Reg-
ister. A copy of the proposed rule can
be found at www.fns.usda.gov/wic/.


Consideration will be given to com-
ments received up to and through 90
days from the publication date.
Comments may be submitted by
any of thd following methods:

Food Programs Division, Food and

Insomnia: A Growing Health Problem
According to data from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine,
insomnia affects up to 40% of all adults in the US during any given year.
The same group reports that the national cost of caring for sleep
problems is almost $16 billion a year. While everyone seems to suffer
from lost sleep; older adults, especially women seem to be affected most
often, and the number of persons in this age group who suffer is
continuing to increase. The result of not being able to fall asleep or
waking up too early or too frequently during the night can cause
restlessness, anxiety, daytime fatigue and irritability. While individuals
vary in their need for sleep, experts agree that 7 to 8 hours a night is the
ideal.
Non-drug treatment for sleep-related problems include avoiding stress
when possible, especially not worrying about not being able to sleep and
avoiding the use of caffeine or alcohol in the hours just prior to bedtime.
Regular exercise, maintaining a consistent bedtime, awakening time each
day, avoiding daytime naps, and learning how to relax before bedtime
may also help. Popular prescription sedative/hypnotics include Ambien
(zolpidem), Sonata (zaleplon), and Lunesta (eszopiclone). Many over-
the-counter sleep medicines contain antihistamines, such as Benadryl
(diphenhydramine), and are effective for some individuals.

Q What is Alkali Burn?


A Alkali or pH burn is a condition that occurs
When fresh mortar, cement mixes and/or
concrete is too fresh (New), been
improperly hiidriated. or an improper
formulation i\as used. This causes the breakdox\wn of
oil-based or 'in Il-acr- lic 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.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Dear Editor:
I will sing it for him!
Gary Mark Thompson, business owner of Certified
Hydraulics in O'Brien, husband and father of three
young children, on his way home from a family outing
came across a severe traffic accident in Live Oak on US
129 and the new Lowes this past.Saturday afternoon.
The vehicle hit was occupiedcby two young children
and their mother all unconscious and fuel leaking all
around the vehicle. Without hesitation he removed all
passengers in the potential inferno after at one time of
his life being severely burnedhimself. I
I for one am proud to have him as a friend and neigh-
bor. He has proven himself many, many times to be a
stand up guy! With all the traffic accidents around here
lately, it makes me rest a little easy to know people like
that are around.'
Let's give him some thanks'

Democrma Rant and Rave hotline!
Hate the 'wa the county mows down the beautiful
flowers along Suwannee County roadsides in the spring?
Don't want anyone else moving to Your county? Think
zoning changes are a bit off? The city charter should be
changed? Think your county government isn't doing its
job? Are you fed up with traffic. bad roads, decimation of
the county's trees for development; general discourtesy
and zoning board decisions, both city and county? Now
you can let everyone know how you feel if you will be re-
spectful in how you express yourself and don't use pro-
fanity.

but no political opinions will be printed the last full week
before election, which is Sept. 5 and Nov. 7 this year.,
Those comments would need to be on the hotline no lat-
er than Aug. 23 for the See
Although it won't be printed in Rant and Rave, you can
also use the line to give the Democrat tips on events hap-
pening in the area that just might be "under wraps" and
you think" your hometown newspaper should know
about. Chances are we may already kno\\ and are w'ork-
irig on a story, but we urge our readers to make sure we

COMMENTARY

A farm, or an amusement park?


,I got a good laugh this morn-
ing when I opened my e-mail.
Some outfit is trying to sell tray-
: el packages to "down-on-the-
farm" hotels. Bottom line, they
charge you to come out to these
"farms" to experience "farm
life."
SDwainWThey asks these questions:
DwWant to try a hand at some
farm work? Want to relax and get stuffed?
The promo says that all these farms provide a
different kind of vacation; you can work on a tra-
ditional farm, explore a modern farm or do a little
apple picking on an apple farm.
Here's something I thought was really
cute: "VWake up to a breakfast of zucchini frittata,
roasted hazelnuts and fresh ginger scones, then,
stuff your pockets with McClure's famous hazel-
nut caramel bars for a hike through the tidily
mowed orchard."
This particular offer comes from Newberg, Ore.
Another one comes from Shelburne, Vt., where
you "can help milk the cows, sheer sheep or collect
eggs."
Wow! Eating zucchini and roasted hazelnuts for'
breakfast! Stuffing your pockets with candy!
Sounds like a real farm experience to me! And you
only have to pay from $145 to $245 per night for a
double. (That includes your zucchini and hazel-
nuts for breakfast, of course,)
Now I suppose there are some people who still
think farming is a replica of the old "Green Acres"
television comedy. And they probably live in New
York or New Jersey.
Obviously they sent this e-mail to the wrong per-
son in the wrong part of the country. We don't eat
zucchini and hazelnuts for breakfast. We eat eggs,
grits, bacon, sausage, pancakes, syrup, country
ham, etc. We don't "tidily mow" our orchards. We
hook up a bush hawg and cut the crap out of sas-
safras and buffalo grass.
I suppose these people are trying to paint a Nor-


man Rockwell version of farming-something truly
gone with the wind.,
SOh well, to each his own. If someone can market
this concept, more power to them. The danger is
that some of the partakers might really believe that
this is what faring is all about.
SSo I tried to picture a more realistic approach. So.
what if they came down to South Georgia and
spent a few days cutting cabbage. No nice hotel,
though, in this experience. They would stay in a
mobile home with half the panes out of the win-
dows, but possibly with a functional toilet.
Or maybe they would crop" tobacco and help
haul it to a bulk barn-sweaty, dirty and a bit
smelly.
If they hurry, they. might help haul peanuts from
the fields to the dryers. No farmer in his right
mind, though, is going to allow these greenhorns
the chance to operate any of his expensive ma-
hinery. They would just be grunts. If they
"strolled through an orchard," it would be to find
.a large enough tree to provide them cover while
nature called. That would probably be a new ex-
perience for .most of them. The farmer could
charge extra for the manual that goes with this ex-
Sperience.
I think what we've done here is draw a line be-
tween farming and some kind of amusement park
rendition. And I feel compelled to draw this line so
that those of us who have experienced real farm-
ing and for those who still do are not insulted.
Now farming has changed dramatically since I
did it for a living. But I think I've still got some of
the grit in my teeth from shaking peanuts with a
pitchfork. And I would never have paid anyone
for the chance to get up at 4 a.m. to unload a to-
bacco barn of sand lugs and then spend the rest of
the day filling it back up. And I certainly wouldn't
start that kind of day with a hearty breakfast of
roasted hazelnuts and zucchini.

ter. He was ordered to pay
Animal Control $685.34
for costs incurred to treat
the animals and $713 for
court costs, the report said.
Wood was given one year
of probation and '100 hours
of community service, the
report said.
According to a report by
the Suwannee County
Sheriff's Office (SCSO) in
April, two adult horses and
a colt were found in a field
in front of Wood's resi-
dence, one of which was.
down and unable to get up.
The field, that was only
about 1/2 an acre in size,
had no shelter, grass, hay
or feed for the animals, the
report said.
SCSO said the horses.
were extremely emaciated
and the t\ o-> ear-old colt
looked like a weanling.
Animal Control Director
Janis Hunter said in April
that after Animal Control
began caring for the hors-
es, one adult horse and the
colt quickly recovered and
were adopted However.
Joe. the other horse, had
been down for at least set-
eral days, Hunter said.at;
tie time. Joe was immedi-
ately put into a walking' ,
sling to get him back on


his feet.
"He was so bad that
when we put him in the
sling he just hung," Hunter
reported in April.
Joe had ulcerations all
over his body from strug-
gling to get on his feet and
his groin area was raw
from being covered in
urine and feces during the
time he was down. Animal
Control treated his wounds,
and fed him a high protein
and nutrient-rich diet for
gaining \\eight and
strength.
"He had to have been
starved for months and
months to get this bad."
Hunter said in April. "Joe
lost close to half of his
body weight."
Hunter said recently Joe
has now made a full recov-
ery and feel\ gallops
around at the center
"He is fat and healthy
and happy and spoiled,"
she said Jul ` 25.
Hunter said though she
has seen numerous cases of
animal cruelty to horses
and other animals, Joe's
condition %as about the
worse she's encountered.
"We were hoping for jail
time, but w\e are fairly hap-
'py about the decision."


said Hunter about the out-
come of the case.
Attempts to contact
Wood for comment were
made twice but he did not
respond.
Hunter said many people
don't realize the responsi-
bility involved in caring
for animals, especially
larger animals such as
horses.
She urges anyone ob-
serving a potential animal
abuse' or neglect case to re-
port it to Animal Control
by calling 208-0072.

bile home park where the two
men lived at about 10:40 p.m.
in response to a 911 call re-
garding a shooting, but be-
cause of a language barrier,
no other information was
available. When officers ar-
rived, they found Martinez
and Agaus suffering'from
gunshot wounds from a small
caliber handgun. Using a
translator, officers learned
that two young, black males
with close cut hair ap-
proached the front door on
the east side of the residence
and demanded money from
the Hispanic males. When the
men refused togi\ e the in-
truders any money, one of the
black males started shooting
at them from the front door,
the report said. Martinez was


hit in the upper arm from a
round that was fired at the
door, the report said. The two
black males then ran north-
bound to the end of the trail-
er, then westbound. As they
ran by the end of the trailer,
at least three more rounds
were fired into the trailer, the
report said. Agaus was appar-
ently struck in the wrist by
the third round that was fired
as the suspects ran west-
bound. Those three rounds
went through \\indos\\ on the
north end of the trailer, one
went into a wall on the south
end of the living room, ac-
cording to the report.
No other description of the
alleged shooters was avail-
able at press time.
Both victims had been re-
leased from Shands at UF by
press time.

Suwannee FFA team takes first in state


reer Development Event is de-
signed to provide an opportuni-
ty to expose students to the se-
lection, research, planning and
presentation of an agricultural
issue. The event also enables
students to become knowledge-
able of and familiar with a vari-
ety of local, state, national and
international issues facing agri-


culture.
A primary goal of the pro-
gram is to further the awareness
of agricultural issues in the local
community. The team chose the
topic of "urbanization" as their
issue to present. After several
weeks researching their topic
and developing their presenta-
tion, the team was required to


present their forum on urbaniza-
tion to at least five different or-
ganizations. The students made
their presentations on the local
level to the Suwannee County
Commissioners, Advent Christ-
ian Village, the Home and Eco-
nomic Development Group
through the Suwannee County
Extension Office, 4-H, and at


the County Land Judging held
by the Soil and Water Conserva-
tion District.
Since winning the state com-
petition, the team has been busy
meeting and further developing
their portfolio for presentation
at the National FFA Convention
in October to be held in Indi-
anapolis.


Suwannee High School's
FFA Agricultural Issues Team
won first place in the state re-
cently and will go on to repre-
sent Florida at the National FFA
Convention in October. The


team is comprised of Celia

Will Bozeman is division Player of the Year!


Will Bozeman, 6, son of
Bill and Melissa Bozeman,
kicked off his summer golf
season on June 12 with a
USKG World Champi-
onship Qualifier held at
Kelly Plantation in Destin.
In a head-to-head match
with Luke Pitt, 6, of Madi-
son, Miss., Bozeman
missed a hole-in-one by an
inch and brought home the
second place medal. From
there he went to Palm
Coast and competed in an-.
other USKG World Cham-
pionship Qualifier on June
20 at Maitanzas Woods
Golf Club and earned an
invitation to advance to the
World Championship held
in late July at Pinehurst,
N.C.
The next day, Bozeman
began the USKG Jack-
sonville Local Tour Season
with a tournament at Cy-
press Knoll Golf Club also
in Palm Coast. He finished
in first place at C, press
then traveled the following
week to North Hampton
Golf Club in Femandina '
Beach where he also se-
cured a first place finish.
The third tournament of
the season, held at Osprey
Cove in St. Mary's, Ga.,
proved to be a challenge as
greens were under repair
Bozeiian struggled men-
tall-, e-er, hole \et man-
aged to wyin the third place
medal Fomin there, he train -
eled back to Mlainnzas in


Palm Coast and finished in
second place.
. As Bozeman's competi-
tors improved their game
so did he, and at his next
tournament at South
Hampton in St. Augustine,
Bozeman scored an even
par, 36, on nine holes se-
curing a three stroke lead
for the win. He went back
to South Hampton just be-
fore leaving for the World
Championship and after a
double tie-breaker finished
in third place with a score
of two over par.
Bozeman then headed
north for Pinehurst, N.C.
and upon arrival, partici-
pated in The Golf Chan-
nel's "Drive, Pitch & Putt"
Contest which was open to
all USKG World Champi.-
onship participants. He
drove the ball 144 yards
for a personal best!
With 83 participants
from around the world in
the boys six and under di-
vision playing at Midland
Country Club just outside
Pinehurst, N.C., the World
Championship began
round one on Thursday of
that week and Bozeman
played with Raiden Weck-
werth from Alaska and
Jose Antonio Ferre from
Venezuela. Bozeman
quickly\ found himself on a
challenging 1300-yard
course \ ith narrow\ ap-
proaches to the greens. In

Dock Talk


By Damon Wooley

Someone recently ques-
tioned me about the ab-
sence of Dock Talk and
why I hadn't written any
articles lately. I couldn't re-
ally come up with any
credible excuses other than
lack of time and effort, but
I'll try to.recap what's been
going on in the fishing
world at the local and na-
tional levels over the last
few weeks.
First off, the \\ednesda',
night bass tournament that
is usually held at Peacock


Lake in Live
Oak was
moved several
weeks ago to
the Suwannee
River in Bran-
ford. The idea
was to geta
better turn
out, which
meant a bigger _
payout. I DamonWooley
fished several
of the tourna-
ments, and there were an
average of 10-15 boats
each week, which I think is
pretty decent. The payouts:
weren't too bad either be-
cause usually only 1-2
places are paid back.' Of
course, I was never on the
receiving end of any of the
paybacks in the tourna-
ments I fished because it
seemed that Junior "Gene"


Dice of Perry was
unstoppable. As a
matter of fact, I
think he has won all
but about two or
three of the tourna-
ments this summer!
Gene has been on a
roll, to say the least.
I hope his mojo
stays with him here
in a couple of
months when he'
travels to Lake
Lanier to compete as a co-
angler in the last Bassmas-
ter Southern Tour event.
He's in position to win the
points championship on the
co-angler,side, which
would enable him to fish as
a boater next year with no
entry fees!
The annual ICAST show
was held last month in Las
Vegas. This is the biggest


CWD not found in Florida


The Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) has concluded
Florida's deer herd shows no signs of
chronic wasting disease
(CWD) after four years of
testing for the deadly dis-
ease.
CWD is a contagious neu-
rological disease that has
been found in captive and
wild herds of mule deer,
white-tailed deer and Rocky
Mountain elk.within several
midwester and western
states. The disease causesde-
generation of the brains of
infected animals resulting in
emaciation, abnormal behav-
ior, loss of bodily functions
and death.
No southeastern states, in-
cluding Florida. have been
hit by the deer disease thus far.
The FWC tested 512 free-ranging
deer during the past year and more than
2,300 deer during the past four years,

: To reduce the chances of CWD gain-'
ing entry into Florida, it is illegal to
bring into the state, carcasses of
any species of deer, elk or moose
from 14 states and two Canadian
provinces where CWD has been
detected.
The disease has been detected in
New Mexico, Utah, Colorado,
Wyoming, Kansas, Minnesota, Ok-

Five people died and sev-
eral others suffered in-
juries-some severe-during
the just-completed mini-
season for spiny lobster
hunters.
Those sobering statistics
raise eyebrows and serve as
a wake-up call for people
during regular spiny lobster
season which begins Aug.
6. Not all the deaths are di-
rectly attributable to div-
ing. But all the victims
were preparing to dive or
actively diving for the
crustacean when they died
or were injured.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) en-
courages divers to take ex-
tra care during the upcom-
ing regular lobster season.
Many times, FWC officers
were first on the scene to
assist in search and rescue
operations, even though
they didn't investigate the
incident unless it was relat-
ed directly to a boating ac-
cident. Diving accident in-


vestigations typically are
completed by the local
sheriff's office or the Coast
Guard, depending on the
location.
FWC officer Robert
Dube, a certified diver, has.
suggestions on how to stay
safe while diving. "Pay at-
tention, be alert to your
.surroundings, properly dis-
play a diver down flag and
file a float plan," Dube
said.
Since most divers will be
using boats, FWC reminds
boaters always know what
is going on around your
boat and "develop a life
jacket habit."
No one should drink and
then attempt to drive a, boat
or -dive, anyone diving
should, be certified, and
everyone should dive with
a buddy.
"Never lose visual con-,
tact with your-dive buddy,"
Dube said.
SOne diver-who was not
certified to dive-was found
dead with an empty air tank


in about 15 feet of water.
He became separated from
his dive buddy and had re-
moved all of his equip-
ment-except his: weight
belt.
S"If you get into trouble
while diving, no matter the
reason, the first thing you:
should do is discard your
weight bell," Dubhe said.
"Don't dive beyond .your
personal capabilities. Plan
your dive and dive your
plan"
Before leaving the dock,
always check the weather
and sea conditions. Also.
he said, make sure all dive
equipment has been
:checked and maintained.
Some 'of the deaths oc-
curred because of medical
conditions.
"People need to remem-
ber, a diver must be in good.
health or he could en-
counter problems in the
water," he said.
"Remember, don't let a
bad decision ruin a great
day on the water," Dube


said.
Statistics from Monroe
and Miami-Dade counties
show FWC officers were
busy during the two-day
mini-season.
They completed 3,083
vessel inspections, checked
10,610 users, issued 101 ci-
tations, arrested two intoxi-
cated boat operators, and
issued 1,45 resource cita-
tions and more than 700
other types of citations or
earnings.
The officers spent 1,036
hours on the water pa-
trolling for resource viola-
tions and 954 hours were
spent on boating safety en-
forcement.
SThey investigated: 12
boating accidents resulting
in injuries to five people, at
least one who was critically
injured when a propeller
sliced into his thigh and
severed an artery.
They were involved in 20


search-and-rescue m
and logged 17 air
hours.

All of the area Wal-Mart
BFL anglers will be gearing
up towards the end of this
month for the last regular
season tournament of the
year that is going to be held
in September on the St.
John's River. This event is
a two day super tournament,
which is important because
only the top 20 percent of
the field advances to the
second competition day
where anglers will be com-
peting not only for cash
prizes, but for valuable
points that will help to se-
cure a spot in the 2006 Wal-
Mart BFL regional tourna-
ment. The regional tourna-
ment is a no-entry event and,
anglers will be competing
for a chance to qualify of
the $100,000 Wal-Mart BFL
All-American Tournament.
Only the top 40 anglers in
the points standings qualify
for the regional tournament,
and there are several local
anglers that are within that
range now, including my-
self, Damon Wooley (6th),
Walt Starling (16th) and-
Deryl Williams (40th) on
the boater side and Jesse
Williams (9th), Chris Lee '-
(23rd), Ben Broughton
(25th) and Mitchell Odom
(33rd) on the co-angler side.
The North Florida Bass-
masters of Wellborn held its
last two monthly club tour-


naments out of Yellow Jack-
et landing on the Suwannee
SRiver. The June tournament
was won by Kindle Nelms
with a good limit that
weighed 14.76. Nelms also
had big bass for the derby
that weighed 4.75. Follow-
ing closely for a tie of sec-
ond and third places with
14.58 were Richard Skipper
and Jr. Dice. The July tour-
nament was won by Bill
Hardy with a five bass limit
weighing 10.79. Joey Wood
was second with 9.46 fol-
lowed by Richard Skipper
'who only weighed three fish
Sfor 8.96. Skipper had the
lunker for the day with a
largemouth weighing 6.12.
Overall, the fishing was
pretty tough for the majority
of the field during both
tournaments. Of course the
weather was extremely hot
and the water levels were
dangerously low and clear.
Finesse fishing.and
crankbaiting were two of the
more productive techniques
that were utilized by the top
finishers each month.

Florida Farm to
Fuel Summit set
for Aug. 30-Sept. 1
.The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices (FDACS) is taking steps
to pave the way for alternative
fuel production and use in Flori-
da by hosting the first ever
Florida Farm to Fuel Sum-.
mit Wednesday through Friday,
Aug. 30 to Sept. 1 at the Omni
Orlando at Champions Gate.
The summit will cover cur-
rent research initiatives, future
production and distribution of
ethanol and bio-diesel in Flori-
da, and incentives/financing op-
portunities for the alternative or
renewable fuels industry.
It is attracting high-level par-
ticipants from the federal and
state government, as well as
representatives of private indus-
try who will be a driving force
in achieving a major alternative
fuels program. Keynote speak-
ers include Assistant Secretary
for Energy Efficiency and Re-
newable Energy Alexander
Karsner, USDA Under'Secre-
tary for Research, Education
and Economics Gale Buchanan,
State Senator Lee Constantine
and State Representative Adam
Hasner. The program will also
feature a special presentation on
Brazil's effort at achieving pe-
troleum independence.
The summit is a component
of the Department's ambitious
"Farm to Fuel" initiative-a
comprehensive effort'to pro-
mote alternative energy and
help position Florida as a leader
in the production of bio-fuels.
S"Since the passage of the En-
ergy Policy Act of 2005, an-
nouncement of the President's
Advanced Energy Initiative and
passage of Florida's Energy
Act, the interest in renewable
energy has never been
greater," FDACS Commission-
er Charles H. Bronson
said. "Our Farm to Fuel Sum-
mit is just one of many ways
that we are trying to bring the
necessary parties and stake-
holders together to discuss us-
ing- the state's ,renewable re-
S6iiR6 'rdie our diiepen-
dency on foreign oil and other
non-renewable sources of ener-
gy. Our ultimate goal is to en-
hance the market for, and pro-
mote the production and distrib-
ution of renewable energy from
Florida-grown crops, agricul-
tural wastes and residues, and
other biomass."
Bronson said that as fuel
prices continue to skyrocket, all
Florida citizens should be tak-
ing an interest in and supporting
alternative fuels development.

The Suwannee County Health
Department encourages all in-
dividuals throughout the com-
munity to make sure that they
and their loved ones are up-to-
date on their immunizations.
The goal of National Immu-
nization Awareness Month is
to increase awareness about
immunizations across the life
span, from infants to the elder-
ly.
In August, parents enroll
children in school, older stu-
dents enter college, and adults

and the health care community
prepare for the upcoming in-
fluenza season. This makes
August a particularly good
time to focus community at-
tention on the value of immu-
nization. Vaccines are safe and
it is important to obtain rou-
tine immunizations to protect
individuals and communities
from serious, life-threatening
infections.
The Health Department sug-
gests people of all ages check
their immunization records to
make sure that they are up-to-
date. The Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC)
recommends that children re-
ceive vaccines against diph-
theria, influenza, tetanus, per-
tussis, measles, mumps, rubel-


la, chickenpox, polio and oth-
ers. Adolescents should be
vaccinated against influenza,
hepatitis A, hepatitis B and
meningococcal disease, and
others that may have been
missed earlier. Vaccines rec-
ommended for adults include
vaccines against influenza,
pneumococcal disease; tetanus
and diphtheria. The immuniza-

FHSAA penalizes Out-of-Door Academy for violations in football program


The Florida High School
Athletic Association has
placed a two-year postseason
ban on the first-year football
program of The Out-of-Door
Academy in Sarasota and
levied other penalties for sev-
eral rules violations in the
sport.
The case involved the illegal
participation of student-ath-
letes in 2006 spring football
practice and a violation of the
Association's rules onr recruit-
ing. This is the first year that
the school has sponsored a
football program.
The school was officially
notified of the findings and
penalties August 3.
"This is not the way we rec-
ommend schools begin foot-
ball programs," Commissioner
John A. Stewart said. "Viola-
tions of the bona fide student,
practice and recruiting rules


aside, what was particularly
disturbing to me was the fact
that the school put at risk the
health and wellbeing of
eighth-grade students by al-
lowing them to participate in
football drills with students of
high school age."
'The investigation deter-
mined that the following viola-
tions were committed:
SThe school permitted a se-
nior student-athlete to partici-
pate in spring football practice
and represent the school in its
spring football jamboree. FH-
SAA rules prohibit seniors
from participating in spring
football practice.
SThe school permitted four
student-athletes attending pub-
lic middle schools to partici-
pate in one or 'more spring
practice sessions with students
in grades 9-11. FHSAA Bylaw
11.1.1 states that a student-ath-

lete must be a bona fide stu-
dent (enrolled and in atten-
dance) of the school at which
he or she participates in prac-
tice or competition. Rules per-
mit the Commissioner, at the
request of a district superinten-
dent, to make an exception for
eighth-grade students in public
middle schools in his or her
district to participate in.spring
football practice at the public
high school they are zoned to
attend the following.year. Such
middle school students, how-
ever, cannot directly partici-
pate in drills with students in
the ninth, 10th or 11th grades.
The school's head football
coach personally provided one
of the four public middle
school student-athletes with
transportation to several of the
spring practice sessions. The
FHSAA Policy on Recruiting
considers an '"offer or accep-
tance of free transportation by
any person associated with a
school" as an illegal induce-
ment, which is considered to
be recruiting under FHSAA
Bylaw 7.6.1.
The following penalties
were imposed in this case:
,; Reprimand..::, i !., .:;


The school's football pro-
gram is placed on probation
for the 2006-07 and 2007-08
'school years. The probation is,
a period of warning during'
which time additional viola-
tions may result in an. exten-
sion of the probationary peri-
od, or the imposition of more
severe penalties.
The school's football pro-
gram is banned from postsea-
son competition during the
2006 and 2007 seasons. The
postseason ban does not affect
Out-of-Door's football pro-
gram in 2006. As a first-year
program, it already is not eligi-.
ble to participate in the FH-
SAA state championship se-
ries. The ban,. however, will
delay the school's first eligibil-
ity for postseason competition
from the 2007 to the 2008 sea-
son.
*The school's football pro-
gram is banned from conduct-
ing spring football practice or
participating in a spring jam-
boree or game in May 2007.
The school is.fined a total
of $3,600 $100 for permit-
ting the senior student-athlete
to participate, in spring football
practice,. .$:1,0,QOQ. ($250 each)'


for permitting the four public
middle school student-athletes
to participate in spring football
practice, and $2,500 for the re-
cruiting violation committed
by the head football coach.
Each of the -four public
middle school students who
participated in the spring prac-
tice, should they attend Out-
of-Door Academy in the ninth
grade, will be ineligible to rep-
resent the school in inter-
scholastic competition for one
calendar year.
FHSAA bylaws ensure the
school's right to appeal the
Commissioner's findings, as
well as the penalties assessed.
The school has 10 business
days to notify the FHSAA Of-
fice in writing if it intends to
file such an appeal. Because
the penalties include restric-
tive probation, the Associa-
tion's Board of Directors will
,hear an.appeal. if filed.

Alabama's Bobo takes $1 million All-American lead


Boater Dalton Bobo of
Northport, Ala., caught five
bass weighing 14 pounds, 15
ounces to grab the opening-
day lead in the $1 million
Wal-Mart Bass Fishing
League All-American pre-
sented by Chevy-one of the
longest running and most re-
spected championships in
competitive bass fishing.
Ninety-six of the nation's
best weekend anglers, repre-
senting 22 states, are com-
peting in the event, which of-
fers $140,000 to the winning
boater and $70,000 to the
winning co-angler.
Anglers are facing typical
river conditions-the ever-
present obstacles presented
by current and rapidly
changing water clarity due to
high water. They also have to
deal with tidal influences to
access some out-of-the-way
fishing areas. Temperatures
were hot and the air was hu-
mid with light showers to
start the competition Thurs-
day, but the forecast calls for
improved conditions the rest


of the week.
Bobo used a variety of top-
water lures to catch his bass
in 2 to 5 feet of water, but the
bait he focused on most was
a buzzbait. "I had the weath-
er, with the clouds and all, to
throw it all day," he said.
He started the day intent
on fishing backwater areas
but arrived only to find them
without any water thanks to
receding river levels. "I
knew the fish were there, but
I couldn't get to them," Bobo
said, who changed tactics on
the fly and found quality.
bass on submerged grass and
wood. "I think I figured the
fish and the tide out today."
SBobo qualified for the All-
American through the Dixie
Division, where he finished
fifth in the points standings
and third in the Clarks Hill
Regional Championship. He
now holds an impressive
lead of 3 pounds, 7 ounces in
the biggest tournament of his
life. He also caught the day's
largest bass in the Boater Di-
vision, a 5-pound, 11-ounce


largemouth. If it holds up
through Saturday as the
Snickers Big Bass for the di-
vision, he will receive a
$1,000 bonus.
Rounding out the top-five
boaters are Christopher
Carmell of Virginia Beach,
Va. (five bass, 11 pounds, 8
ounces); Robert Walser of
Lexington, N.C. (five bass,
11 pounds, 4 ounces); Jere-
my T. Lawyer of Sarcoxie,
Mo. (five bass, 11 pounds);
and Kip Carter of Oxford,
Ga. (five bass, 10 pounds, 12
ounces).
Only the top-10 boaters
following Friday's weigh-in
will advance to Saturday's
final round where competi-
tors maintain their two-day
total weight and fish for the
heaviest three-day -weight to
determine the winner.
Michael Wright of Coving-
ton, Ga., who qualified
through the Bulldog Division
and the Lake Toho Regional,
leads the Co-angler Division
by only a feW' ounces with a
fiVe-bass limit weighing 8


pounds, 15 ounces. "I had a
great time," Wright said. "It
took me all day to get my
fifth fish, but I finally got it."
Wright was fishing mainly
finesse gear around grass
and laydowns in 2 to 8 feet
of water. Specifically, he was
throwing Zoom finesse soft-
plastics to catch his limit of
bass.
Rounding out the top-five
co-anglers are Carl Whipple
of Fredericksburg, Va. (four
bass, 8 pounds, 11. ounces);
Anthony: Ferdinando of
Spicewood, Texas .(five
bass, 8 pounds, 5 ounces);
Pat Lay of Cleveland, Tenn.
(five bass, 8 pounds, 2
ounces); and Keith L. Smith
of Madison, Miss. (four bass,
7 pounds, 13 ounces).
The co-angler champion
will be determined at Fri-
day's weigh-in based on two-
day total weight.
Brandon Wallen of Monti-
cello, Ky., caught the day's
largest bass in the Co-angler
Division, a 4-pound, 7-ounce
largemouth. If it holds up


through Friday as the Snick-
ers Big Bass for the division,
he will receive a $1,000
bonus.
Takeoffs start at 7 a.m.
from Riverfront Plaza in
downtown Hartford, and an-
glers will weigh-in each day
at 4 p.m. at the Connecticut
Convention Center located at
100 Columbus Blvd. in Hart-
ford. Surrounding the weigh-
in, is the Family Fun Zone
and outdoor show which
opens at 2 p.m. Friday and

11 a.m. Saturday. The show
features games and product
displays for fishing fans of
all ages to enjoy.
On Saturday, 10 All-Amer-
ican qualifiers who do not
advance to the final round,
will be paired with 10 an-
glers representing the New
England Paralyzed Veterans
of America for a one-day
memorial tournament on the
Connecticut River. This tour-
nament honoring service-
members wounded in the
line of duty will launch from
Charter Oak Landing at 8:30


a.m. Weigh-in for the memo-
rial tournament will be held
at the Connecticut Conven-
tion Center at 2 p.m. The vet-
erans and All-American an-
glers will be escorted to and
from the launch ramp Satur-
day by the Nam Knights of
America, a Harley.Davidson
motorcycle club comprised
of military personnel and
law enforcement officers
dedicated to honoring the
memory of all veterans. Rep-
resentatives of the Nam
Knights will also assist NEP-
VA anglers during the weigh-
in.
This year's championship
marks the 22nd anniversary
of-the first $100,000 award
in competitive bass fishing.
That historic award was pre-
sented to 1984 All-American
champion Shaw Grigsby of
Gainesville, Fla., for his vic-
tory on the Kissimmee Chain
of Lakes in Florida. All-
American qualifiers repre-
sent the best of more than
30,000 BFL participants na-
tionwide.

1ASK DR .MANTOOTHI


Q: How can a person find a dentist?
A: There are many ways to find a dentist
who's'right for you. Ask family members,
co-workers .n.d ,, friends for
recommendations. Or ask another health
professional, your family doctor or eye
doctor, say or your pharmacist. If you are
moving to a new area, ask your current
dentist. He or she may be able to
recommend a colleague. You also could
call or write to your local or state dental
society. Or you could go on-line and check
the website for the American Dental
Association at www.ada.org and look for
dentists in your area. If you have the
luxury, you may want to talk to a couple of
dentists before settling on one. When you
are comparison-shopping, consider factors
like location of the office, hours, fees,
method of payment and due date for
payment. Naturally you want to find out if
the dentist participates in your health plan.
Your relationship with your dentist should
be a close and comfortable one. So ask
lots of questions until you reach that
comfort level.

_,., Hi folks,
My name is John Brazell.
My wife, Johnnie Haynes
A. ,. Brazell, and I live out on
; 'Dry Prairie Road, (112th
Street). We lived in Jack-
sonville for 40-plus years
and wanted to go back to our
.country upbringing (Georgia
and Florida). "Hey;" how

get? We love it! I was em-
ployed at the same barber
shop that I just left for 20-
plus years and it was hard to
leave my.customers-friends,
but the big city, well, what
can I say.
I stopped by Stewart's Bar-
ber Shop.to see if by some
chance they needed a barber.
Vivian said, yes, I do. So the
rest is praise the Lord.
P.S. I need someone to
teach me how to freshwater
fish. Sorry, I don't have a
John Brazell boat, "yet."

STORMS & OUTAGES
Long before a storm or hurricane threatens, SVEC stands ready to respond.
When the storm hits, our employees roll up their sleeves and go to work to
'restore power interrupted by the sorm's fury.


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

Here are a few tips to follow for your safety:
SIf someone In your home'is dependent on medical equlpmenl
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.


I',
.iT 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.
SPrepare a list of essential Items you would need in case you are
evacuated from your home and have them readily available. Some of
these items could include medications, insulin, contact
lenses/supplies, extra eyeglasses and'denture needs.
If your power goes out, wait at least five minutes before
reporting It to SVEC office In order to give our
automatic .equipment time to restore power.
Listen to your local radio and TV stations for
weather updates and Information from SVEC.

Bio of Justin Timineri, ex-
ecutive chef, FDACS
Timineri has been cooking
for as long as he can remem-
ber. Raised by a family of
cooks, he loved being in the
kitchen helping whenever he
could. As Timineri grew older,
he realized cooking was more
than just an interest or hobby-
it was something he wanted to
do for the rest of his life. As
soon as he was old enough to,
work, he started as a dish-
washer at a local restaurant in
Tallahassee to get his foot in
the door of the industry. From
that point on, Timineri contin-
ued to enjoy his passion and
discover new opportunities in
the restaurant and hospitality
industry.
Over the years he has held a
variety of jobs. He worked as
a sous chef at Albert's
Provence in Tallahassee. From
there he traveled around the
country for four years as the
event chef for NASCAR,
PGA and the Kentucky Derby.


Then the opportunity arose
for him to become executive
chef at Mozaik, a trendy up-
scale restaurant in Tallahassee.
All his experiences have led
him to his current position as
executive chef for the,
FDACS.
As executive chef for
FDACS's Division of Market-
ing and Development,
Timineri's responsibilities in-
clude promoting all of Flori-
da's agricultural products, cre-
ating new recipes, attending
trade events, performing cook-
ing demonstrations and edu-
cating children on the value of
health and nutrition in food.
Timineri's philosophy on
food is a simple one: "Cook-
ing should always be fun, sim-
ple and flavorful." He always
keeps nutrition in mind and
enjoys cooking with fresh
foods that are harvested local-
ly and regionally. With a range
of talents from casual to fine
dining, modem American to
classic European, Timineri can
create a meal for anyone.
Bio of Joshua Butler, chef
for the Governor of Florida
Joshua Butler was born on
Dec. 8, 1976, in St. Peters-
burg. As a child, his fascina-
tion with cooking grew from
watching his family in the.
kitchen. His natural talent with
cooking led him to choose the
culinary arts as a career.
In 1994, Butler began his
career as a prep cook at an up-
scale American restaurant. On
his first day,.his experience of
the high-paced restaurant
kitchen assured his choice of
becoming a chef. From 1994
until 1998, Butler's culinary
experience ranged from cafes
to fine dining, which enabled
him to learn the many facets
of cuisine.
Hands-on learning has
proven Butler's most effective
method of education. "To be-
come a better chef one must
always read and keep up to
Sdate with the food industry
.and to truly experience cuisine
one must be hands-on physi-
cally working with.food," says
the self-taught chef.
In 1998, while working at
the Governor's Club in Talla-
hassee, he Was given the op-
portunity to interview for the
position of executive chef at
the Governor's Mansion. After
a series of interviews he was
chosen to be the next chef for
the Governor of Florida. He
has since served three Gover-
nors and many dignitaries of
the state. Butler currently cre-
ates inventive and exciting
cuisine for Florida's first fami-
ly, Jeb and Columba Bush. At
.the mansion he has the cre-
ative freedom to experiment
with many ingredients and dif-
ferent styles of cuisine. He -
does not limit himself to one
way of cooking, and often ex-
plores exotic spices and un-
usual techniques.
Butler is currently a mem-
ber of the American Culinary
Federation. As learning is nev-
er complete in the culinary
arts, Butler plans to continue
his lifelong education through
travel, apprenticeship, net-
working and most importantly
through his taste buds.

PORTABLE GENERATORS!I

Many residents who lose power may turn to.
emergency generators to ensure a continuous flow
of electricity to refrigerators, freezers, lights, fans
i and other appliances. SVEC urges residents to
exercise extreme caution. While generators are a
convenience in keeping appliances running during
storm-related outages, they can also create hazards
for homeowners and electric utility workers.

When operating a generator:
* Always operate a generator in accordance with your house to receive power directly from a portable generator
manufacturer's guidelines and instructions, as opposed to power normally supplied by SVEC. Transfer
switches isolate the circuits supplied by the generator and

Are contacts OK for kids?


Contact lenses offer a relatively safe method of correcting
vision problems, apart from wearing glasses. It is estimated that
approximately 29 million people wear contact lenses in the
United States, according to WebMD.com, and the numbers
worldwide are even higher.
Contact lenses are either of the hard or soft variety (soft being
the preferred) and are- worn directly on the eye. They float in
front of the cornea on a thin film of tears. Correct design and
fitting of the contacts are essential to comfort and effectiveness.
Thanks to the popularity of contact lenses among adults, many
wonder if contacts are a safe option for children as well. While
there.aren't obvious medical reasons why contacts shouldn't be
used by children, there are concerns regarding hygiene,
maintenance and insertion of the contacts, and whether a child is
mature enough for this responsibility.
Contact lenses, particularly the soft type commonly used, can
collect dirt and microorganisms on their surface. As such, daily
cleaning and proper storage of the lenses is imperative for eye
health. Irritation and disease could spread in the eye if contacts
aren't properly maintained. In most cases, children simply do
not have the discipline required to use contacts. By age 13 or 14,
however, some eye doctors feel there is an increased ability to
use contacts but every child is different.
Caregivers should use caution when making the decision of
contacts over glasses. Most professionals agree, however, that
LASIK surgery, where a flap is cut into the cornea with a laser
to permanently treat vision problems, should not be used-on
children. Minor vision infractions may clear up over time with
more traditional methods, such as wearing glasses. These should
be explored prior to any talk about surgery.
Experts also feel that the use of cosmetic contacts, which are
typically tinted lenses that can change eye color or feature
designs, should be highly discouraged. Children often share and
swap these lenses, creating a breeding ground of bacteria. This
can lead to potential eye-health problems, including blindness,
and is unsanitary.
Should you allow children to use contact lenses, instill these
important lessons:
Wash hands before touching contact lenses as not to transfer
dirt and germs to the lenses and eye.

Adults use them all the time, but contact lenses may not be the best
idea for children.
with the appropriate cleaning/disinfecting solution and twist caps

Regardless of the type of products and contact lenses you use,
here are some general care tips, courtesy of AllAboutVision.com:
-Never touch solution'bottle tips to any surface, including your
body: the solution can become contaminated.
Avoid getting tap water on your contact lenses and accessories,
as it can carry a microorganism called Acanthamoeba that causes
serious eye infections. While regular contact lens disinfection
procedures do kill Acanthamoeba, they typically don't kill its cysts.
Remember to clean your contact lens accessories (lens case,
cleaning/disinfecting devices, enzymatic cleaner vials and so on) as
directed.
