board decisions, both city and county? Now you can let everyone
know how you feel if you will be respectful in how you express your-
self and don't use profanity.

SENATOR MEL MARTINEZ NEWS


Martinez statement regarding the foiled terrorist plot tar-
geting flights from the United Kingdom to the United States:
"This threat is obviously extraordinarily serious and un-
derscores the continuing importance of international co-
operation in the War on Terror.
"I commend the swift action of British and US intelli-
gence officials in working together to thwart this recent
plot.
"Today's events are a grim reminder of the constant
threat of harm not only to US citizens but to those who
love freedom around the world. We must continue to be
vigilant in protecting Americans and our allies from those
who seek to do us harm."
Martinez introduces the teach act
Measure seeks $4,500 tax credit for education tuition re- ,,
imbursement
Martinez introduced a bill to establish a tax credit of up
to $4,500 to help families pay the cost of private school tu-
ition. The Tax and Education Assistance for Children
(TEACH) Act is designed to make it easier for middle class
and low-income families to choose the best learning envi-
ronment for their children.. .
"More than five million American students attend pri-
vate schools each year at no expense to the American tax-
payer. Parents that choose to provide a competitive edu-
cation should not have to pay for their children's educa-
tion twice," Martinez said. "By bringing fairness to the sys-
tem, my bill also helps low and middle income families af-
ford tuition."
The TEACH Act would establish a tax credit of up to
$4,500 per family for private elementary or secondary
school tuition paid by a parent or legal guardian. The Tax
Credit'is nori-refundable and does not institute a voucher
program.
The Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act protects Florida'
and helps nation
Martinez made the the following floor remarks on Senate
bill 3711, the Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act, which
would' provide a zone of protection ensuring Florida's
Gulf coast remains free from the threat of offshore drilling.
Senators approved the motion to proceed to debating the
issue 86 to 12. Martinez voted in favor of the motion. The
bill ultimately passed the US Senate.
"This agreement provides unprecedented protection for
the Gulf Coast of Florida," said Martinez. "I fully support
this bill because these are the best protection Florida is
likely to achieve."

Martinez statement regarding Castro's transition of pow-
er '
Martinez recently made the following statement regard-
ing recent reports that Cuba's Communist dictator, Fidel
Castro, had turned over power to his brother Raul after
complications from surgery:
"The Cuban people have been deprived of any freedom
for 47 years. Castro has been a ruthless tyrant who has
cared more about power than about the well-being of the
Cuban people. Hopefully this is the beginning of the end
of his reign. The Cuban people deserve no less than the op-
portunity to have a new future and to live their lives in
freedom.
"Since my youth, I have looked forward to a day with-
out Castro's ruthless hand over Cuba. Because of him, I
'had to leave my life behind as I knew it-my home, my fam-
ily and the country that I loved. Thousands of other Cuban
families have also endured this pain and disruption to
their lives. Others endured worse-prison, torture and even
death.
"The long-awaited day of a Cuba without Castro may be
approaching. Our hope and our purpose should now be
for a true moment of change, not a transfer from one. dic-
tator to another.
"I think at this moment, with reports uncertain, we must
remain vigilant and ready to assist the Cuban people to-
wards a democratic future. The dissident and exile com-
munities need to work together and stay united for the
good of Cuba's future.
Martinez came to the United States in 1962 at the age of
15 as part of Operation Pedro Pan. He is the first Cuba-
born person to serve in the United States Senate.
Martinez: Senate bill would require review of any changes
at Eglin AFB


Martinez added an amendment to the fiscal year 2007
Defense Appropriations bill that will require the Air Force
to conduct a rigorous review of any realignment of mis-
sions at any Air Force base, including Eglin AFB. With
Sens. Bill Nelson (D-FL); Pete Domenici (R-NM), and Jeff
Bingaman (D-NM), Martinez offered the amendment
which was approved by the full Senate.
Martinez applauds transportation initiative
Martinez applauded the agreement announced by the
Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and CSX
that clears the way for enhanced and expanded commuter
rail in Florida.
"This is a fantastic opportunity'to open alternative av-
enues of transportation for Floridians. This has been in the
works for some time and I am,pleased that FDOT and CSX
have produced an agreement that will benefit the people
of our state," said Martinez.

Q o Why should I use a
primer?

Primers serve thr-ee.primary functions:
S* Seals Promotes Adhesion Blocks out
A stains
In addition, the pnmer can improve the efficiency\ of the
project by reducing surface preparation and improving
topcoat coverage. Primers are great problem solvers for
surfaces that require more than a simple coat of paint. On
surfaces like sheet rock or plaster, a primer helps to even
out the porosity and keeps the paint from being absorbed
unevenly. If a primer is not used, the more porous areas
will "flatter" than the non-porous areas and the over-all
appearance of the topcoat will suffer enormously. As
well as enhancing the top coat's appearance, specific
primers can provide corrosion resistance on metals or
alkali resistance on masonry. The best primers to choose
from are at Live Oak Paint Center.

Prescription and OTC Treatment for Head Lice
Head lice (pediculus humanus capitis), are parasitic insects which
commonly affect humans. These parasites feed on blood several times a
day and maintain residence close to the scalp. They may also be found
behind the ears and near the neckline, however are rarely found on the
eyelashes, eyebrows, or other body parts. Transmission may occur
through close contact'as well as the sharing of personal items such as
hats, hair ribbons, or clothes. Head lice may be identified by a tickling
feeling of movement in the hair, itching, or sores due to scratching.
Nonprescription and prescription medications are available to treat head
lice. Over-the-counter medications include pyrethrins (A-200, Pronto,
R&C, and Triple X) and permethrin (Nix). Both medications are safe and
effective, however treatment may need to be repeated in 7 10 days.
Wash clothes and bedding used by the infested person in the 2 days
preceding treatment. Follow the label instructions when using these lice
medications. Do not use a creme rinse or combination
shampoo/conditioner before treatment, and also do not re-wash hair for 1
- 2 days after treatment. Malathion (Ovide) is a prescription medication
used to treat head lice and may be used in people 6 years of age and
older.

teacher in Brevard County
where he -was murdered.
The investigation, led by
the Attorney General's Of-
fice of Civil Rights in
conjunction with the
Florida Department of
Law Enforcement (FDLE),
which included Live Oak
FDLE Office Supervisor
Dennis Norred, points to
extensive circumstantial
evidence .that the Moores
were victims of a conspir-
acy by exceedingly violent
members of a Central
Florida Klavern of the Ku
Klux Klan. Following ex-
tensive review, of avail-
able information, more
than 100 additional inter-
views, the most detailed
excavation of the crime
scene ereindc'rtdlketn and
extensive analysis, inves-
tigatorsconcluded that at
least four individuals are
thought to be directly in-
volved.
Earl J. Brooklyn, a
Klansman known for be-
ing exceedingly violent,.
was identified as having
floor plans of the Moore
home and recruiting vol-
unteers. Tillman H.
Belvin, another violent
Klansman who was a close


friend of Brooklyn, is
thought to have joined
with Brooklyn. Josepli N.
Cox, another Klansman,
was confronted by. the FBI
and committed suicide the
y day after his second inter-
view with the FBI in
1952. Cox was also im-
plicated in a deathbed
confession by his close
, friend and fellow Klans-.
mran Edward L.,Spivey in
1978. Investigators with
the Attorney General's Of-
fice and FDLE now be-
lieve Spivey himself was
at the scene of the Dec.
t 25, 1951, bombing. -
"We believe a clear pic-
ture has emerged as to.
what happened and who
was responsible for this
terrorist act," said Crist.
"This investigation literal-
ly left no stone unturned,
landwe have great confi-
11cl c t(hat the m ijoDcul-a,
pIrifs.have now been iden-
tified. In all likelihood,
indictments from a grand
-jury would be sought
against, these four if they
were still living."
Belvin died less than a
year after the bombings,
while Brooklyn died on
Christmas Day 1952, the
one-year anniversary of
the attack. Both men ap-
parently died of natural
causes. Cox committed


suicide on March 30,
1952. Spivey, who said he
was implicating Cox in or-
der to "clear his con-
science" after discovering
he suffered from terminal
cancer, died in 1980.
"This extensive investi-
gation has returned some
long-sought after clarifica-
tion as to what happened,
on that tragic, night almost
55 years ago," said FDLE
Commissioner, Gerald Bai-
ley. ."The evidence points
strongly to these four indi-
Viduals and we are thank-
ful there are answers for
the Moore family."
At approximately 10:20
p.m. on Dec. 25, 1951, a'
bomb placed under the
Moores' bedroom explod-
ed. The blast instantly
killed Harry and mortally
wounded Harriette, who
died nine days later. The
o iginIialBI investigation
,-developed' information that
cast suspicion on Brooklyn
and Belvin. Cox shot
himself after the FBI in-
formed him it had evi-
dence on him, That inves-
tigation was closed in
1955 with no arrests.
In 1978, the Brevard
County Sheriff and Bre-
vard State Attorney re-
opened the case. Investi-
gators were contacted by

formation on Cox's in-
volvement arid his own se-
rious medical condition.
Spiv ey's detailed descrip-
tion made his information
highly credible.. The State
Attorney who helped- re-
open the case was not re-
elected, and no charges
were filed prior to
Spivey's death in 1980.
In 1991, then-Governor
Lawton Chile's directed
FDLE,,to investigate
claims from a woman who
'stated that her'husband
had been involved in the
bombing. ;No compelling
evidence to substantiate
those claims was devel-
oped.
,The current investiga-
tion included an interview
of the former Brevard
Sheriff's investigator and
the prosecutor who spent
time with.Spivey in 1978.
Bothremain comninced
that Spivey's account is
highly credible. Spivey in-
dicated that Cox was re-
warded for participating in
the plot by having his
mortgage paid off.. A re-
view of property records
did not confirm a mort-


gage satisfaction for Cox,
but did 1ho\ that Belvin
had his inolitgage satisfied
four days.prior to the
bombings and more than
one year before it was due.
Based upon this infor-
mation and Spivey's vivid
description of the crime
scene before the blast, in-
vestigators believe Spivey
wa's also involved in the
bombing. The investiga-
tive report also states that
others might well have
been involved, ,ut the
passage of time makes any
such determination highly.
difficult. In addition, in-
vestigators are convinced
that almost 55 years after
the murders, sonie poten-
tial witnesses are still re-
luctant to provide informa-
tion for reasons that in-
clude a fear of retribution..
.Crist .said. the con- C
pelling conclusion, ,ofrthis
investigation would not
.have been possible without
the outstanding work of a
dedicated team of profes-
sionals, particularly Alli-
son Bethel and Frank
Beisler of the Attorney
General's Office and Spe-.


cial Agent Supervisor
Dennis Norred of FDLE,..
"Our goal going in was
to find out what happened
for the sake of all who be-
lieve in justice, but espe-
cially for the remaining
family of Harry and Harri-
ette Moore," said Crist.
"To their daughter Evan-
geline, a lady of remark-
able grace and a tower of
quiet strength. our hope is
that after more than half a
century she can no\\ real-
ize the closure that has
been so elusive"
"Today, this announce- ,
ment means more to. me

The Suwannee Democrat brings to our tions in advance and could not change their opinion to serve in elected office. We do not who you should vote for this Sept. 5 We at
readers today our interviews with candi- answers once they left the interview, feel it is our job to editorialize on which the Democrat hope you will find it iiforma-".
dates for the Suwannee County School We at the Democrat feel it is our duty to candidates we feel are the best suited to tive.
Board Districts 3 and 4 and County Com- provide you, our loyal readers, with infor- serve. Remember, the Suwannee Countr Super-
mission District 4. All candidates were in- mation you can use to help you decide Please use the, following information to visor of Elections Office is opennow foir
terviewed privately, none knew the ques- which candidates are best qualified in your aid you in making an informed decision on early voting.



Suwannee County School Board District 3 candidates


1. What can you bring to the school board
your opponents) cannot?
Incumbent Julie Blake Ulmer What I've
brought to the school
board already is a level
of accessibility because
I have a flexible sched-
eule that allowsmeto be
S in the schools on a reg-
ular basis. Teachers and
parents see me more
than they' see other
Julie Ulmer board members and it
allows me to express.
their concerns. It allows me to address those con-
cerns.
Candidate Dan Marsee I feel experience.at.
all levels of education.
I've been an elemen-
Stary school, middle
school and high school
Teacher, as well as a
coach at all levels in
many different sports. I
]U S also have experience in
discipline issues at all
Dan Marsee schools, having taught
in school suspension.
Therefore, I understand the importance of the de-
velopment of a well-rounded student.'

2. What sets \ou apart from your opponent?
Incumbent Julie Blake Ulmer My experi-
ence sets me apart from my opponent because I've
forked very hard and accomplished many goals
over the last four years having been a SehQol.
Bqr, .member., I'm a certified bord.., repmber
through the school board association. Also. I think
mN flexible schedule also sets me apart, and, that
I'm the finance manager for my husband's com-
pany.
Candidate Dan Marsee- I'm a firm believer in
accountability. I believe-regardless of the position
a person holds, I'm someone who is not afraid to
ask the hard questions of anybody on any deci-
sions made that affect our children.

3. Teachers feel they aren't getting the raises
they deserve from the School Board. Your feel-
ings on this issue.
Incumbent Julie Blake Ulmer I'm very
proud of the fact that teachers in Suwannee Coun-
ty are the highest paid teachers in any of the sur-


rounding counties. The School Board has worked and not popularity.
very hard to make the salaries of all of our em-


ployees the number one priority. It is. a greater.
challenge for smaller districts to meet all the man-
dates and stay within the mandates. I'm very
proud of the fiscal responsibility record we have.
Teachers do a' really great job and desert, e 1il1 the
raises the) can get. I'll continue, to \loik hard to
continue to give them the best raises we can give..
Candidate Dan Marsee That's state wide.
Teachers aren't being paid as the professional_ that
they really are. We must come up \\ ith v. a-, s to pa;,
teachers more, If not, our surrounding' counties,
will begin to steal our teachers away from us. If
better pay raises are not feasible based on our state
budgets, we have to come up with ways to make
them feel they are important to our communities in
.order to keep them in our community.

4. How do you feel about what it will cost the
taxpayers in legal fees if the voters decide to go
to county-wide voting knowing the NAACP
will file a lawsuit against the county and school
board?
Incumbent Julie Blake Ulmer I believe in
having smaller districts because the constituents
feel more comfortable having a board member
closer to them that they can talk with and express
their concerns. When you spend money fighting'
lawsuits in a school district, that .is taking nonev'
directly out of the' classroom. That really bothers
me..
Candidate DanN Marsee I think wie should
pay whatever it costs to do what our voters wish to
see happen in our comnImiti. If this is what our
colnunumty eels it should be, we need'to support
t IH r ', ,' i '

5. Can School Board members serve the citi-
zens better if elected countywide in your opin-
ion?.
Incumbent Julie Blake Ulmer No, I don't
believe that School Board members can. I think
they can serve, the citizens, better if elected in
smaller districts. In the school district, we look out
for the citizens better. For instance, last night a cit-
izen from Branford called me, and although I'm
not in that district, I talked with them. Constituents
feel better if they are represented by someone who
is closer to them .
Candidate Dan ]%Ia rsee That ultimately lies
with the School Board member elected. No matter
how we vote them in, we need to make sure the
.right people are getting into. office based on issues'


6.: In your view, how should a school board.
member prioritize their duties to best benefit
the children he/she sern es.
Incumbent Julie Blake Ulner I ha\ e al a
lept the classroom first and foremost in my mind.
Thinkidna of% hat stuLdents and the teachers need is
n i;, number one prion.i It is myn responsibility. to
have a balanced budget and make sure that our
employ ees have the best salaries possible and to
ensure our students have the supplies and materi-
als they need in the classroom. Also, in reviewing
school board policie-, making sure the policies
cover all the state and federal mandates and are,
written to protect our employees and students. It's
.our responsibility to keep looking for new ideas,
and innovations also.
Candidate Dan Marsee First thing they need
to do is be accessible at the schools, know what is
going on in our schools and when at the schools,
be sure they are talking with the teachers to ask
what. they heed to be success. Then, they need to
provide these teachers with what they need.

7. What is your theory on education?
Incumbent Julie Blake Ulmer My personal
theory on education comes from my experience as
a classroom teacher. Every child is different. We
need to make sure that we enable our teachers to
teach each child as an individual and help them to
achieve their potential. Our job as educators is to
help our :students become productive citizens
ready to make a difference in society whether it be.
going directly into the work force, attending col-
lege or going into the mihtar. \\e hae a \er\ inm-
poi tant job h-, ig to teach, students all die acade-
mic standads.' but "\e need to remember that
learning should be fmun.
Candidate Dan Marsee I feel we need to get
back to the basics, not teaching toward a test but in
a way to prepare these students for the work force.
We have to understand that some students will not
go to college but need to be prepared to be suc-
cessful citizens in our community. Our Vo-Tech is
doing a good job'at this time but we need to con-
tinue to support on-the-job training at the Vo-Tech.
I also feel.that under the current system we are fo-
cusing our efforts on bringing the bottom to the
middle and forgetting about th6se students that are
at the top. By not challenging this group, they are
falling back to the middle. We need to make sure
we are challenging all of our students, regardless
of their ability levels. True education comes


through improvement for each individual student.

8. Should the position of supe-intendent of
schools be appointed or elected?/
Incumbent Julie Blake Ulner- Whether a su-
perintendent is elected or appointed. the constitu-
tional roles and responsibilities are clearly di\ ided
''from that of School Board members. The risk you
take of ha\ ing an elected superintendent is there
could be a person who has no -ackground in edu-
cation.tI adapantl) believe you have to have this
background to serve in that position. Suwannee
County has been fortunate thit our last fe%\ super-
intendents ha\ e had that expXiience. I' e created a
network of School Board members across the state
over the last foul \ears. The same problems those
people face is the same %- ith elected and appoint-
.ed superintendents. it really does not make a dif-
ference. The difference ,% ith appointed and elect-
ed is the salary package They are\ xer comperi-
tive. The good superintendents that are appointed
are fought for, and -\ e just don't liha e the money
to compete with that. J
Candidate Dan Marsee I'm a firm believer'
we should never take away the right to elect our
officials because if we allow it to become an ap-
pointed position, who is to say'the state \\ on then
want to appoint our school board members. I
shifts the power to the state and a\\ as from our
communities. What makes our country eat is the
right to vote.

9. Where should the next school be built in
Suiannee County.
Incumbent Julie Blake Uhlmer In looking at
the bus figures ofiw here w e ha\ e the iuost students
being transpoied from. a-tually the Do-\ ling Park
area is the biggest area. ft's surpnsing because
most people thought it \ouLid -,e NMcAlpin or
Wellborn. Where there is no infrastaci.acri. it be-
comes a big challenge to construct a school rn'A.
district.
Candidate Dan Marsee,- We need to start sepL'
rating our schools. \\e need' to plan for thd
growth of community because if we keep pumttng
our schools on top of each other, traffic will con-
tinue to be a nightmare. We need to plan 10 \ears -
ahead because growth is here.

:10. Have you ever been convicted of any.
crime, felony or misdemeanor? If so, ihat % as-
the crime and when?
Incumbent Julie Blake Ulmer No.
Candidate Dan Marsee No.


Suwannee County School Board District 4 candidates


1. What can you bring to the school board
your opponents) cannot?.
Candidate James Cooper My years of expe-
rience and the opportu-
nity I've -had over the
years of working with
different sup~erinten-
dents, school board'
members, staff and
teachers, plus I've had
a lot of teaching experi-
ence.
James Cooper Candidate Ed de-
Silva I believe I have
the youth, creativity
and experience dealing
with youth and families
over the course of my
career as a children's
counselor that would
allow me to. be a
tremendous asset to the
School Board.
Ed deSilva Candidate Jane
Lowe One of the
things I can bring to the
1 School Board is I have
been a negotiator be-
tween the school board,
-' teachers and all school-
related employees. I
bargained successfully.
S for six years as presi-
dent of .a teachers'
union. During that time
Jane Lowe the employees I repre-
sented received a 25 percent raise over six years. I
also served five years on the North Florida Com-
munity College Board of Trustees. I also bring an
appreciation for-the legal binding agreement called
"The Contract," and an appreciation for the admin-
istration. Another thing I can bring is I am a school
teacher. I've been in the classroom for the past 30


-years. I understand the needs of children, the frus-
tration parents sometimes feel toward the educa-
tion system and the love, energy and time dedicat-
ed teachers put into their classrooms. I believe bus
drivers should get combat pay!.

2. What sets you apart from your oppo-
nent(s)?
Candidate James Cooper Having oilked
here for so many years.and having worked in the'
community, having worked so closely with all the
employees of the School District over the years. I
think that gives me an edge. They know what I've
done working in various areas of the cU:nununli,.
All employees are important and play a vital role in
the safety and welfare for the growth and de\ elop-
ment of our students.
Candidate Ed deSilva I have two school-age
children which raises my concerns with the educa-
tional system in the county. It's not just about my
kids, it's about all the children in the county. I have
budgeting and fiscal experience which would in-
sure that tax dollars are spent wisely.
Candidate Jane Lowe I have a knowledge-
able voice of the current problems in education. I
am a classroom teacher with a mother's. heart. I
know all parents want their children to be success-
ful. I have served on school advisory councils. As
a curriculum coordinator, I have been attending the
high school and middle -school reform workshops
mandated by the state legislature. I do not have to
catch up with what's going on in education, I know
what's going on in education!

3. Teachers feel they aren't getting the raises
they deserve from the School Board. Your feel-
ings on this issue.
Candidate James Cooper Teachers really
never get as much as they are worth. I don't know
if we can even afford to give them the value of their
experience and expertise. However, we need to try
to raise the salaries of the teachers so we can be
competitive with the surrounding counties and also


to attract even more highly qualified people to
Work in, our system..
Candidate Ed deSilva I don't believe teachers
can ever be paid what they are worth. I'm not just
saying that, that's the way I truly believe. I believe
teachers and police officers are two of the most im-
portant and underpaid jobs there are. Budgeting on
'the district .and state level are related to teacher
salaries. Every effort needs to be made to get the
annual cost of living raises and to make sure those
that have tenure move up through the pay scale. It's
only fair that you reward someone who is dedicat-
ed to the job with an appropriate salary.
Candidate Jane Lowe Good teachers can nev-
er be paid enough as they are molding the future.
They are holding children's lives in their hands as
they .try to teach them everything they need to be
successful adults so they can be taxpaying citizens
and happy people throughout their lifetimes. This
year Florida has a 30,000 teacher shortage but
hopefully the Suwannee County School Board can
let teacher's know they are valued and appreciated
even if they can't give them the raise they deserve.
True respect has a value of its own.

4. How do you feel about what it willocost the
taxpayers in legal fees if the voters decide to go
to county-wide voting knowing the NAACP will
file a lawsuit against the county and school
board?
Candidate James Cooper I think if we' went
back to county wide voting, it would exclude a lot
of qualified participants because they may not have
the money to campaign the whole district. Only the
wealthy or those with a lot of money could fill
these positions and I don't feel that would be good
for the average citizen.
Candidate Ed deSilva I'm a little bit familiar
with the efforts to go to county-wide voting and
think there's positive' and negatives to that. I
haven't researched it enough to come up with an
opinion on it.
Candidate Jane Lowe As a history teacher


and person who believes strongly in the democrat-
ic process, I do not know enough about this issue-
at this time to have a valid opinion. '

,5. Can School Board members serve the citi-
zens better if elected countywide in your opin-
ion?, /
Candidate James Cooper I don't think soli
think School Board members have to be broad
minded enough to represent every district, regard:'
less of whether they are district wide or county
wide. The children, they are our future and.it,
shouldn't matter what district they come from. It's
all about children and it is not about what is politi-'
cally correct.
Candidate Ed deSilva I don't think a School
Board member has to be elected county-wide to-
serve the county better. Just because I'm elected in.
District 4, that doesn't mean I can't tend to the
needs of someone in Dowling Park or Branford.-
Once you are elected to a public office, you should'
serve the public regardless of your district. Tid
public is your boss and you do what the public'
wants.
Candidate Jane Lowe I think the first concern'
of any School Board member would, be children
and what is best for children. That means all chil-
dren with their advantages and disadvantages..
Everything we as School Board members do
should revolve around what is best for children. All,
parents in every district should have someone in,
their community they can call about issues and,
concerns involving education.

6. In your view, how should a school board
member prioritize their duties to best benefit
the children he/she serves.
Candidate James Cooper First of all, they
need to visit the schools and have an open line of
communication to the administration, teachers,
parents, business people and the community. They'

need to become very familiar with the needs of the
children and the employees of the district. Based
on that assessment, they can begin to look at new
ideas and new approaches and meeting the needs
of our children.
Candidate Ed deSilva I think you need to
meet the needs of the family and the child first. If
you meet those needs, you should be meeting the
needs of the school also.
Candidate Jane Lowe First of all, I think a
School Board member needs to have a clear pic-
ture of all of the problems a school teacher faces
on a daily basis with the problems of children be-
ing so needy what a child ate or if a child ate that
morning, what that child has to go home to or does
the child have a home to go to, if the child is sick
and the mother sent the child to school anyway,
does this child want to sleep all day. Once a school
board member understands all the issues sur-
rounding children today, they can make better de-
cisions concerning children on the bus, in the
1 classroom and in the school clinic.

7. What is your theory on education?
Candidate James Cooper I believe that all
children can learn and that given the proper in-


struction and parental support, they can achieve.
My theory is that FCAT and things like that slow
the process for the average student because they
are used for the wrong reason. There's nothing
wrong with FCAT, but they diminish the self es-
teem of the children
Candidate Ed deSilva I think every child has
the capacity to learn in their own way. It's our duty
as a community to insure that child's educational
needs are met. I don't think you can have a cook-
ie cutter type educational system. Because of the
complexity of the children these days, you have to
have a more diverse and varied educational sys-
tem.
Candidate Jane Lowe I believe teachers with
a passion for education and children are the edu-
cators making the difference in the classroom. Par-
ents should want their children placed in that
teacher's classroom because those children will
learn. All children are good at something. We as
educators have to find out what it is and encourage
those children to believe in themselves.

8. Should the position of superintendent of
schools be appointed or elected?,
Candidate James Cooper In small commu-
nities like ours, I tend to lean more toward the
elected superintendent so you can have more of a


balance of power, whereas the appointed superin-
tendent answers directly to the board on every is-
sue. Sometimes that's not good. You may have a
good person doing a good job and the board may,
for some reason, not want them.
Candidate Ed deSilva I've never put a lot of
thought into that question.
Candidate Jane Lowe I see advantages to
both, but in a small community such as ours, I be-
lieve it is still to our advantage to have an elected
superintendent. A locally elected superintendent
knows the heart of the community.

9. Where should the next school be built in
Suwannee County.
Candidate James Cooper You really would
have to look at some data to make a judgment on
that. Just off the top of my head, it seems between
Live Oak and Branford would be the best place'.
But, you have to see how many children are in-
volved...a lot of retirees are moving in and you
may have increases in population and not an in-
crease in children. Careful study and needs assess-
ments have to be made to determine, what area is
most appropriate.
Candidate Ed deSilva'- I think we need to wait
and see where growth is going to be in the next
four years. There seems to be a lot of growth down


SR 51 and out Newbern Road. We may need to
look at the current school setup. It may be in the
best interest of the families to restructure what
grade levels go where. That's a question that time
can answer.
Candidate Jane Lowe After the improve-
ments are made at Branford, I would like to see an
elementary school built'in Wellborn as it used to
be. A community school is the heart of a commu-
nity. It would be just wonderful for little children
to not have to get.up so early or ride a bus so long.
The old Wellborn School classmates still meet
every spring to celebrate their love of their com-
munity school. It is a national trend to go back and
build community schools, especially for younger
students. Our little community is growing, we al-
ready have a water system, a fire department, and
I'm hoping we soon have a sheriff's deputy in the
area. It's time to consider this project of returning
to a community: school in Wellborn and then we
may consider one at McAlpin and also O'Brien.

10. Have you ever been convicted of any
crime, felony or misdemeanor? If so, what was
the crime and when?
Candidate James Cooper No
Candidate Ed deSilva No.
Candidate Jane Lowe No.


County Commission District 4


1. Why do you think the County Commis-'
sion is divided and at odds?
Candidate Linda Dye When you have five
people, you certainly
have the possibility
of five different
views. Buit, we all
know. three votes
takes it, leaving the
other two feeling they
have been left out of
0rthe process of fully
Linda Dye representing their
constituents. They
need to set their sights on what is best overall
for the county and try to work consistently to-
gether.
Incumbent Billy Maxwell I really don't
know that they are
any more divided
than most county
commissioners in
other counties. .But,.
each being an indi-
vidual, they are going
1 h to have .different,
opinions. I think
Billy Maxwell that's healthy as long
as. you express those
opinions in an orderly fashion and then come to
a majority or unanimous conclusion and accept
that regardless of which side you were on. I
don't really know that it's any 'worse than most
from those I talk with. I'm trying my best to
keep the peace.
S -, Candidate Diana Robinson Because they
don't have the whole
county. at heart. A'
county commissioner
serves their district,
but also needsto re-
member they. serve
the county asa whole
T iCommissioners do
not need personal
Diana Robinson D agendas because it
will overshadow their
'opinions and their votes. A commissioner is
elected to serve their citizens and their citizens'
needs. That should be the main goal for all
commissioners. -

A. How would you solve this problem?
,Candidate Linda Dye I would have to re-
view independently my opinion of what is be-
ing voted on, the relation and effects it may
have on the county, and I would as a county
commissioner, be compelled to vote for what
would be the best in my opinion for the whole
county and not individual desires.
Incumbent Billy Maxwell I don't really
know that the problem is that great. I don't know
that you would ever really change it. But I do
think we have all got to be really considerate of
the feelings of others and base your opinions and,
opposition on the issues and not personalities.
Candidate Diana' Robinson Many times
commissioners vote because they think that's
what another commissioner wants them to do.
That only causes friction and is not the purpose
of a commissioner's job. Politics is give and take
and sometimes that's the only way we can build
a,majority.

2. Where do you stand on districts verses
county-wide voting?
Candidate Linda Dye Through county-wide
voting, districts will not be eliminated. Elected
representatives must come from within their
home district. The only difference being that they
will be elected by all the registered voters of
Suwannee County and not just the district they
live in.
Incumbent Billy Maxwell I see advantages
and disadvantages both ways. I can accept the
wishes of the citizens of Suwannee County; how-
ever, if they decide it should be done, I have no
problem accepting the outcome.
Candidate Diana Robinson A commission-
er in Suwannee County is elected to serve not
odnly their district, but the whole county. I have no


objections to the county-wide voting, but I think
we need to consider that running county-wide
will cost a lot more money than running district-
wide, which might hinder someone from running
for an office. Personally, I do not have a prefer-
ence in'this issue.

3. How do you feel about what it will cost
the taxpayers in legal fees if the voters decide
to go to county-wide voting knowing the
NAACP will file a lawsuit against the county
and school board?
Candidate Linda Dye First of all, the'coun-
ty and the school:board has in no way supported
this petition. The statutes which it falls under
comes from the state of Florida, so I don't see
why the NAACP would see the need to sue the
county or the school board. I don't view this is-
sue as an issue of race, but as an issue of ac-
countability. I see no reason why all county com-
missioners should not be accountable to the vot-
ers of Suwannee County. The Clerk of Court,
Sheriff, Superintendent of Schools, Tax Collec-
tor, Supervisor of Elections and Property Ap-
praiser are all elected county wide and therefore
all are accountable to all voters, why not our
County Commissioners? ,
Incumbent Billy Max'well '- I have no idea-
what it would or would not cost since I don't
know what the most recent court decisions are on
the issue. I would hope that it could be resolved
before it reached that point. However, I don't
know of any authority I would have to override
the vote of the people if that is what they choose
to do.
Candidate Diana Robinson If this is the
voters' choice, then we will have to do what the
voting population tells us to do.

4. Have you had an. part in getting this on
the ballot and if so, explain your reasoning?
Candidate Linda Dye No, but if it is on the
November ballot, the voters will then decide
themselves if this is right for their county.
Incumbent Billy Maxwell I had absolutely'
no part of putting it on the ballot, I have not
signed any petitions to put it on the ballot, and I
refused to second the motion that was made one
time to put it on the ballot. However, I respect the
people's rights to make their own decision.
Candidate Diana Robinson No.

5. How do you feel about requiring that all
future subdivisions have paved roads, regard-
less of the size of the lots?
Candidate Linda Dye I would have to re-
view the' county regulations concerning subdivi-
sions.
Incumbent Billy Maxwell During my tenure
as chairman of the board, my project was to
rewrite the regulations that determine subdivi-
sions, I voted for these changes to require every
sub-division be paved regardless of size that
were submitted to the North Central Florida
Planning Council along with other changes.
Those changes are before the board at this time
for review. I feel strongly they should all be,
paved.
Candidate Diana Robinson Absolutely! We
cannot maintain and keep up the roads we have
in our county at this point. I don't know where
we would get the money to keep up any more
roads in the future. More taxes? Taxpayers don't
feel they are getting their money's worth at this
time. One of the main questions I've been asked
is "what are we doing with these tax dollars? We
don't see it at work.' Citizens are dissatisfied
with the roads and the shape they are in. They
want better roads and more turnaround time on
maintenance.

6. Attempts have been made to fire the cur-
rent County Coordinator. How do you feel
about this?
Candidate Linda Dye I don't -know why
they want to fire Mr. Wooley. Those county em-
ployees I've spoken with seem to be very com-
fortable with and supportive of Mr. Wooley. But,
having no inside information, I personally can't
express my opinion concerning this ongoing sit-
uation.


Incumbent Billy Maxwell There again, I
have not seconded any motions to fire anyone. I
have tried to find solutions to the problems.
However, there-has got to be some solution to
bring employees back to acceptable work condi-
tions and find a cure for the turmoil going on
among the count) employ ees right now.
Candidate Diana Robinson Personally, I do
not know the reasoning behind thus mo\e.

7. What will you do as a commissioner to
protect Suwannee County's water?
Candidate Linda Dye I would protect
Suwannee County's water against commercial
gain. Suwannee County's water should be
Suwannee County's water not for commercial
or personal gain. .
Incumbent Billy Maxwell I'm 100 percent for
protecting the quality of our water and seeing it
is not contaminated in any way. As far as compa-
nies operating bottling plants and taking water
out of the springs, I would not consider any ap-
proval of that unless it was approved by Sui an-
nee River Water Management which oversees
these areas and has new rules on minimum flows.
I would look to them to have the answ\ ers.
Candidate Diana Robinson I believe \enr
strongly in local sources first. I would hope
Suwannee County would not permit any compa-
ny to extract water from our water systems. Wa-
ter is a precious commodity, and it does not need
to be exploited. I do not think this is what Suwan-
nee County needs to do.

8. Suwannee County is again looking at
having a state prison. How do you feel about
this issue?
Candidate Linda Dye It's my understanding_
that this issue has been senled and the state
prison will begin construction in 2Q07. I am not
pro prison as much as I am pro jobs for Suwan-
nee County. If there is an alternative selection
that can be put on that property out there, then the
commission should look into it. But, before we
become completely adamant against the prison,
we should examine its benefits. '
Incumbent Billy Maxwell I have no objec-
tion to a state prison coming here. I.don't know
how many new jobs it will create but it will bring
people from Suwannee County employed in oth-
er areas back home. We need new jobs and it will'
provide employment.
Candidate Diana Robinson We are sur-
rounded by prisons. I know for a fact that when
Lafayette County went online with its prison,
people were against it. But, now, they have seen
the economic benefit andwill tell you it is one of
the best things that's happened in Lafayette
County. We hqve a large number of Suwannee
County people who work in the surrounding pris-
ons. I think it would be beneficial for them to be
able to work inside their own county. It is a clean
'industry and will benefit our tax base.

9. Many changes have taken place within
the county's structure of Fire/Rescue. What
are your feelings about these changes and the
future plans?
Candidate Linda Dye I have met with the
volunteer fire fighters' regulatory board during
this campaign. I came away with a very positive
view of what they would like to see in Suwannee
County concerning working together with volun-
teer and career fire fighters. I came away with the
feeling these people are concerned community
activists, not self indulgent, but concerned for
their home county.,
Incumbent Billy Maxwell I am very happy
to have been part of those changes the consoli-
dation and cross training of the two departments
has surely-caused a reduction in operational
costs. It will allow us to have more EMS services
and fire services at less cost to the county. Due to
this, we were able to add this third Fire/Rescue
station to give better coverage to the entire coun-
ty. Hopefully in the near future, we will be able
to add a fourth Fire/Rescue station due to this
cross training. I think it was a very good thing
and ,we're in the process of addressing the
salaries of these people as it seems to have been
a big problem in the past. The services, of para-


medics is in great demand and we feel we are ad-
dressing the problems so our salaries are com-
patible with surrounding counties to keep the
ones we have. Unless you've made one of those
fast trips to Gainesville with a heart problem y ou
can't full\ appreciate it.
Candidate Diana Robinson Recently I re-
ceived a letter from a lady in District 4., Her 3-
year-old grandson had a seizure andi when she
called 911, she was told the ambulance was in a
different part of the county. After 45 minutes of
-,aitmng. she finally called'the. fire stationfor
help. This could be you or I in this situation. We
have many, many more people in our county, and
they are demanding more sen ices and putting
bigger demands on the services available. I think
each district in Su\wannee county should have a
permanent EMIS station which is manned 24 7.
The accessibility of emergency services some-
times will make a difference between the life or
death of you or your loved ones.

10. Suwannee County is growing by leaps
and bounds. County Commissioners need to
look beyond the boundaries of the county for
help to deal with this growth...Your ideas
please.
"'Caf'diaate LindafDye I think we can look
to the larger counties in our 1orth Floida 'area,
how they have dealt with their growth, their pro-
grams they've put in place to deal with: growth
and the numerous problems that may come with
it. Tallahassee is most certainly one of those ar-
eas where we should reach out for help. I've
served on the Suwannee County Zoning Board
of Adjustments and the Suwannee County Plan-
ning and Zoning Board for six years, my last
three years as chairman. During my service on
these boards, I, worked with the, North Central
Florida Regional Planning Council concerning
the. land development regulations for Suwannee
County. Ifeel this has given me on hands experi-
ence and a knowledgeable understanding of the
growth challenges Suwannee County faces.
Incumbent Billy Maxwell It is very limited
what help is available beyond the county except
possibly in the planning stages. 'But, we are do-
ing the very best we can to maintain quality and
orderly growth However, until such time as we
can have someone on board who is highly trained
in land development regulations, most of all
comp plan amendments, we're not going to make
much progress in that area. It's so difficult to put
the growth where you want it to go--residential
and industrial. It's hard because you'll still have
growth happening in areas where you don't want
it. We've got to hire somebody who knows how
to get all this done. I'm to the point %\here I
would entertain hiring a professional planner on
an as needed basis to change some of these comp
plans to allow us to locate some of these busi-
nesses here where right now we can't. Apparent-
ly you can only submit twice a year for a comp
plan change. If you have a company with 200
employees, they can't wait six months.
Candidate Diana Robinson Yes, we have to
look to the state of Florida for assistance in many
of our projects. Suwannee County was fortunate
to have received about $600,000 from the fiscal-
ly constrained bill that was passed this year in the
Legislature. But your commission has to be will-
ing to look outside of Suwannee County at other
small, rural counties and see how they have ef-
fectively met growth management. We need a
commission board that is comfortable going to
Tallahassee meeting with Legislators and getting
assistance for our county when necessary.
Suwannee County has profited by grants and
budget requests over the years to help meet the
needs of this county and it needs to continue to
do so. We can no longer continue to fool our-
selves by thinking we can take care of it by our-
selves, but we need to take our head out of the
sand.

11. Have you ever been convicted of any
crime, felony or misdemeanor? If so, what
was the crime and when?
Candidate Linda Dye No.
Incumbent Billy Maxwell No, I haven't
even been falsely accused that I know of.. '
Candidate Diana Robinson No.

Day of Choices


Youth Program


"Choose ye this day to
make a difference in your
life." This was the theme
for a youth program
Christian Mission in Ac-
tion (CMIA) and Tri-
umph Teen Vision held
for local children this
summer.
CMIA President Au-
drey Howell Sharpe and
Triumph Church pastor
Lee Ann Charlton.spon-
sored the Youth Fest at
John Hale Park recently.
Youth were encouraged
to make positive choices
about drugs, sex, anger
and relationships.
Charlton said the
theme was chosen to let
youth know they can
make right choices to
produce a successful life.
. More than 200 youth
and adults attended the
event. Activities included
a Powerpoint presenta-
tion from a mother who
lost her son to a 'drug
overdose and a skit pre-
sented by Hal Chaffee of
the, Abstinence Program
through the Suwannee
County Health Depart-
ment on choices about
sex.
The Suwannee County,
Sheriff's Office, Charlton
and volunteers demon-
strated what happens
when a person goes to
jail. Chief Deputy Ron
Colvin and Deputy Ron
Polite led eye-opening
discussions presenting,
along with pictures of the
effects of drugs on ,the
body.
Andra Davis, Frank.
Snead', Keasha,; Waters,
Ramton a Perkins and
Arnold Philmore showed
their automobiles to let
youth know by making
right choices in life they
can drive the same auto-
mobiles the drug dealers
are driving without being
afraid of the law.
A talent contest, sack
races and jump-rope con-
test were held with the
winners receiving tro-


phies and all the children
receiving medallions for
participating. Dog tags
with "I SAY NO TO
DOPE" and bracelets
with "WAIT FOR YOUR
MATE" were given to all
the children.
Food was provided by
Triumph Church for
everyone, including
snow cones and popcorn
for the children.
Charlton said the,Day
of Choices Youth Pro-
gram was well received
by parents and children.
"Many parents wanted
to know more about what
we do, and children
wanted to know when' we
would do this again,"
said Charlton. "Our. chil-
dren need an outlet. They
need places to go in the
summer with positive ac-
tivities."
Sharpe and Charlton
are working together to
help youth know there
are choices. The two also
help lead many other op-
portunities for youth in
the community.
CMIA is a volunteer
program made up of sev-
eral churches in the Live
Oak area. CMIA spon-
sored a day camp for
children free of charge
this summer. They also
provide a monthly feed-
ing and clothes-give-
away program.
, The Triumph Teeni Cen-
ter and the CMIA Center
at 1210 Seventh Street,
Live Oak, will also spon-
sor an after-school pro-
gram this year. Children
will receive help academ-
ically, including prepara-
tion for the FCAT.
These programs are
volunteer based and op-
erate on donations.
"If it is to be, it's up to
you to help save our.
youth," said Charlton.

Williams said one of the five
employees was able to wiggle
out of his bindings and free
the others except the ones
who were handcuffed. They
immediately called 911,.
LOPD Sgt. Keith Davis
was the first on scene within


seconds, assessing the situa-
tion. A tracking team was
called in to assist.
No one was harmed in the
robbery, LOPD said.
Law enforcement is still
looking for the suspect, de-
scribed as a black male be-
tween five feet ten inches to
six feet two inches tall, wear-
ing a dark, long sleeve shirt
and dark pants, LOPD
said. The suspect had long
thick dreadlocks with a Rasta-
farian hat, and a large caliber


black handgun with brown
hand grips. The suspect also
had with him a black duffel
bag with a red diamond logo
on the side, LOPD said.
Later that night a vehicle
crashed into a semi on Inter-
state 75 south of the turnpike
in Sumpter County and
rolled over, but the driver fled
the scene, Williams said.
Found inside that vehicle was
a wig believed to have been
used in the Golden Corral
robbery and cash believed to


be from that robbery.
Williams said the car was im-

Carbon mor

in student

As college students and
their parents prepare for the
upcoming school year, it's
important that they consider
the safety of.the dormitories
or apartments that will serve
as the students' homes away
home. One often overlooked
aspect of home safety is
protection from accidental
carbon monoxide (CO) poi-,
soning.
CO is the leading cause of
accidental poisoning deaths
in America, according to the
Journal of the American
Medical Association. In
mid-July, one person tragi-
cally died and more than
S 100 others were sent to the
hospital following a CO in-
cident stemming from a wa-
ter heater malfunction in a
residence hall at Roanoke
College in Virginia. The
--.4ormitory had no CO alarms
installed, but the college has
since taken steps to install
alarms.
,.The American College of
Emergency Physicians and
First Alert would like to re-
mind students and their par-
ents to be aware of CO safe-
ty practices and recognize
the symptoms of CO poison-
ing. Here are some helpful
tips to keep in mind:
Ask dorm officials or
landlords in advance if resi-
dences are equipped with
working CO alarms. If they
aren't, supply your own'
alarm, as having a CO alarm
is virtually the only way to
detect this invisible, odor-
less and tasteless gas.
Install at least one CO
alarm, preferably near the
sleeping area. Make sure. the
alarm is battery operated or
has battery backup to ensure
it functions during power
outages. Test the alarm
weekly and change the bat-
teries \\i~lh each daylight
saving time change.
Never burn charcoal or
other outdoor cooking appli-
ances indoors or in partially
enclosed porches or.
garages. CO comes from
common, fossil fuel burning
appliances, such as grills, as
well as furnaces, hot water
hiearers, gas ranges/ovens,
fireplaces and gas-powered
generators.
Don't ignore the alarm if
it sounds, even if you feel
fine. CO alarms are de-
signed to go off before you
feel the effects of CO. Im-
S iediately move everyone
outside to a source of fresh
air and dial 911. Do not re-
enter until emergency re-
sponders find the source of
CO and provide further in-
struction.
"Carbon monoxide poi-
soning can mimic common
symptoms associated with
the flu, so it is important
that people know its signs
and symptoms," said Dr.
Frederick Blum, president
of ACEP. "At mild.to mod-
erate exposure levels, these
symptoms can include
headache, nausea, vomiting,
confusion and fatigue. And
at extreme levels, a person
can suffer convulsions, un-
consciousness and even
death in as little as 15 min-
utes."

bon monoxide safety and

Cadets from the new

pose of the weekend was to

let, just south of Daytona
Beach.

things she is also part of the
high school band. A clarinet
player, Heather wanted to
attend the training bivouac
to learn how to drill and
march in formation, She
figures this will help her out
in her band, and of course
during any football games.,
Heather has been in Civil
Air Patrol (CAP) for a little
more than a year. She was
originally a member of the
-Lake City squadron then
transferred to Suwannee
County when Suwannee
Valley Composite Squadron
unit started a few* months
ago.
She joined 26 other cadets
from six squadrons from,
around North Florida.

Citizens living within-a

steps at home to protect
Florida's springs. Envi-

practices can reduce nu-
trient run-off and protect
water quality in the
springs. In addition,
homeowners can plant a
Florida-friendly yard us-
ing native plants that are
best suited for Florida's

'Dogs lose to War Eagles 17-8


SusanlK. Lamb


Democrat Managing Editor
In its first time out of the
gate for the 2006 football sea-
son, the Suwannee Bulldogs
football team came home the
looser to Wakulla, 17 6, in
the Kick-off Classic in
, Wakulla.
The Bulldogs spent their
first night of 2006 football
pushing toward the goal line
bft only reaching it once and
i rilissing the extra point kick..
S"Fumbles, a dozen of them,
were the Bulldogs' downfall,
but the team showed promise
with the defense having a
good night.
2By the end of the first quar-
ter of play in Wakulla, offi-
cials had thrown nearly a half
dozen flags. By the time the
night ended, that number was
ini-double digits as the offi-
cials as well as the players
worked out the first game jit-
trs.
Near the end of the first
half, Wakulla made the first
touchdown after Jarrett Yulee
fumbled the ball and Wakulla
recovered. But, the touch-

down had to wait until after
officials called a penalty on
the War'Eagles for having 12
men on the field. The kick
was good and the score went
to 7 0, Wakulla.
Suwannee quarterback
Taihaune Roundtree fumbled
the ball but Suwannee recov-
ered, losing 10 yards: Wakul-
Ia recovered the ball after a
pass. missed its mark. Wakul-
Ia m ade a 10-yard dash for
the goal line, but the Bull-
dct.- ran down the War Eagle
at the 17-yard line, ending
\\akulla's hopes for another
louK down. Instead, Wakulla
kicked, making the three
points and bringing the score
to 10-0, Wakulla..
To begin the. second half,
\\akLilla kicked, bui ihe kick
v \as called back b, the offi-
ci.tl. This time, Jason Cherry
caught the ball and ran to the
30-,, ard line before being
tackled. Suwannee didn't
miale it to the goal line this
time either. After more penal-
ties against Wakulla, Suwan-
nee finally had its chance to
score. Jarrett Yulee took the
hand-off and went into the
end zone for six points. The
Dogs were given a 5-yard
penalty for motion before
they could get to the extra
point attempt.
The extra point, kicked by
newcomer Cullen Boggus in
his first ever extra point at-
tempt, failed and the score
was 10-6, Wakulla. Boggus is
new to the Bulldog team and
is a veteran soccer player for
Suwannee High.
It would be the first and
only time Suwannee would
score in this first game of the
2006 season.
With nearly six minutes to
go in the third quarter, Bull-
dog Stephon Cherry made a
good showing as he took
down a Wakulla War Eagle
player headed for the goal
line. As Wakulla continued to
'move toward another score,
Suwannee's defensive line
was making a good showing
as they thwarted Wakulla's
efforts to make additional


touchdowns.
The remainder of the game
was a blur of fumbles, penal-
ties and turnovers. At one
point Brandon Allen made a
good run for the Bulldogs,
gaining 15 yards. In.another
play, Jarrett Yulee took the
ball into the touchdown zone
as Suwannee knocked on the
door of another six points,
but a fumble saw a loose ball
and Wakulla recovered.
As the game continued,
Wakulla was determined to
make another touchdown,
even when the defensive line
was just as determined they
would not. The Bulldogs get
credit for their never say die.
efforts in holding off Wakulla
as long as possible in their ef-
forts to win the game. But,
alas, in spite of their efforts,
the Bulldogs sa\, Wakttull
score one more time, then
make the extra point for a fi-
nal score of 17-6.
While the Bulldogs got
several more chances to
score and Brandon Clayton
carried the ball for three
yards at one point, the points
eluded them.
Bulldog Coach Bobby
Bennett took out Jason Cher-
ry at quarterback as he saw
the handwriting on the clock
and gave new varsity player
Frank Snead an opportunity
to get in a, little playing time.
-Some of the other players
getting field time were Ken-
ny Clayton, Bramby Starling,
Barney Wainwright, Larry
Allen, Clay Kinard, Joe Kel-
ly and Johnny Herring.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH|

Q: Can my general lifestyle affect my oral
health?
A: The answer is "yes." Studies have shown
that people with healthy, active lifestyles have
fewer dental problems than those who smoke,
drink alcohol regularly and eat poorly. In
particular, people with a less healthy lifestyle
tend to develop periodontal, or gum,
problems. People with an unhealthy lifestyle
are more likely to end up with periodontal
pockets--gaps where the gum has receded
from the tooth, exposing part of the root.
Studies have found that smokers with poor
eating habits and who drink alcohol on a
regular basis are less concerned with their
overall health and are less likely to brush their
teeth and floss on a regular basis.
Nonsmokers who exercise regularly are also
more likely to brush and floss regularly. Those
who don't brush, floss and visit the dentist
regularly generally develop more tarter and
decay in their mouths, this leads to gum
bleeding, inflammation of the gums and,
ultimately, periodontal disease. Periodontal
disease eventually leads to bone loss and the
loss of teeth. Talk with your dentist about
ways you can improve your overall lifestyle
and your smile.

rises/sunsets, moon phases and tides. From that,
*the avid fly fisherman created the Solunar Theo-
ry, which he named for Sol (the Roman sun
god), and Luna (the Roman goddess who per-
sonified the moon).
Anglers already knew tides were an important
factor in saltwater fishing success, and recog-
nized the connection between tides and moon
phases. Meanwhile, American Indians, and other
groups that depended on hunting and fishing for
survival, realized animals were more active dur-
ing full and new moons. Knight speculated the
relationship between the sun and moon, rather
than tidal stages, might provide a way to predict
fishing success. Knight determined that midway
between when the moon rose and set, and vice-
versa, fishing activity peaked. He coined the
phrases "major Solunar periods" and "minor
Solunar periods" to describe them. These peri-
ods of greatest animal activity (not only fish)
last 90 minutes to three hours, depending on the
moon's relationship to the sun, its distance from
Earth and the sun's angle from the equator.
In 1936,,Knight published. the first Solunar
* Tables based on this information. However, we
now know that, to be accurate, the precise times
from each table must consider the geographic,
location and be adjusted for daylight saving
time, when appropriate.' You can approximate
these times by adding six hours to the rise and
set times for the moon (see MyFWC.com/Fish-
ing/Schedule/LunarCalculator.html for an on-
line calculator for any date and location).
The intensity of Solunar periods' impact
varies according to the position of the moon, its
distance from Earth and the angle of the moon
above or below the equator. New moons provide
maximum impact when the sun and moon are
traveling in rhythm with their forces combined.
'During a full moon, they are opposite one an-
other, with one or the other nearly always above
the horizon, and they provide'a strong: secondaJr\
peak. Then the intensity tapers off to a minimum
during the moon's third quarter. June has the'
greatest combined Solunar influence. You
should also consider local weather patterns. Fish
and wildlife have an innate ability to predict
weather and react accordingly. Barometric
changes, especially a downward trend, often can
turn-fishing off. Conversely, sometimes an ap-
proaching cold front seems to make fish go into
a feeding frenzy to beat the bad weather. Typi-
cally, if the barometer is steady or rising and the
air temperature is significantly higher than the
water temperature, a stronger response to the
Solunar periods is likely, but immediately fol-
lowing a cold front, some fish are. rather lethar-
gic. Temperature is also associated with spa-in-
ing times and can be a ke\ fa.tor in the seasonal


patterns of fish behavior. You can find more
about that at MyFWC.com/fishing/schedule/sea-
sonal-calendar.html.
A natural day for fish, and many other animal
species, revolves around a twice-daily "biologi-
cal clock" that appears to coincide with lunar
time. It is based on the time it takes the moon to
complete one rotation of the earth (an average of
24 hours and 53 minutes). This explains why
ocean tides are about an hour later each day and
r why most fish, freshwater species included, will
feed up to an hour later each day. Regardless of
whether species are most active in daytime or
night, sunrise and sunset are important to in
their movements and feeding.
So when you put it all together, the odds are if
you go fishing six. hours after the moon rises or
sets, and that time coincides with sunrise during
a new moon, while the the barometer is rising, the
water levels are adequate, water quality is good,
there are plenty of big hungry fish looking for
food, and not too many big hungry mosquitoes,
you've got the optimum fishing time. Or if all
this confuses you as much as it does me, then
remember ... the BEST time to go fishing' ... is
whenever you can go safely!

Study shows women prefer


once-monthly Osteoporosis


medicine over a once-weekly


A new study shows the majority of women with
postmenopausal osteoporosis prefer a once-monthly
dosing regimen compared to a once-weekly.
"In my practice, active women look for an
osteoporosis medication that disrupts their routine less
often one that fits their busy lifestyle," said Ronald
Emkey, M.D:, lead investigator of the study and
medical director of Radiant Research in Reading, Pa.
"This makes a once-monthly regimen an important
dosing option."
The study was presented at the 27th Annual Meeting
of the American Society for Bone and Mineral
Research and included 342 women with
postmenopausal osteoporosis who took once-monthly
oral Boniva (ibandronate sodium) and once-weekly
oral alendronate (70 mg) each for three consecutive
months. The efficacy of the two treatments was not
assessed in the study.
In March, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
approved Boniva 150 mg as the first and only once-a-
month prescription treatment for postmenopausal
osteoporosis. Boniva is co-promoted by Roche and
GlaxoSmithKline.
Osteoporosis and low bone mass (osteopenia) are
becoming more prevalent in the U.S. today, as the
number of postmenopausal women continues to rise.
In the, U.S. today, 10 million individuals, eight million
of whom are women, are estimated to already have
osteoporosis, and almost 34 million more are.
estimated to have low bone mass, placing them at
increased risk for the disease. By 2010, osteoporosis
and low bone mass are expected to affect an estimated
52 million Americans age 50 and older.

Osteoporosis treatments won't work if patients don't
stay on therapy a serious problem since more.than half
of patients stop taking their medication within a year.
Patients who take Boniva are' eligible to sign up for
MyBONIVA, a' support program designed to help patients
maintain the unique monthly regimen.
Important Safety Information: Boniva is
contraindicated in patients unable to stand or sit upright
for at least 60 minutes, with uncorrected hypocalcemia,;
or with known hypersensitivity to any component of
Boniva. Boniva, like other bisphosphonates administered
orally, may cause upper gastrointestinal disorders such as
dysphagia, esophagitis, and esophageal or gastric ulcer.
Boniva is not recommended in patients with severe renal
impairment. Adequate intake of calcium and.vitamin D is
important in all patients.
Rarely, patients have reported severe bone, joint and/or
muscle pain after taking bisphosphonate therapy for
osteoporosis. Additionally, osteonecrosis of thejaw has '
rarely been reported in patients treated with
bisphosphonates; most cases have been in cancer patients
undergoing dental procedures.
The most commonly reported adverse events with once-
monthly Boniva regardless of causality were abdominal
pain (Boniva 150 mg 7.8 percent vs. Boniva 2.5 pg 5.3
percent), hypertension (6.3 percent vs. 7.3 percent),
dyspepsia (5.6 percent vs. 7.1 percent), arthralgia (5.6
percent vs. 3.5 percent), nausea. (5.1 percent vs. 4.8
percent) and diarrhea (5.1 percent vs. 4.1 percent).

Madison County's John

eigher Jr.


wins


Deputy


S


sheriff of the Year 2006


On Tuesday evening, Aug.
1, the Florida Sheriffs Asso-
ciation presented one if its
highest awards and honors
given by Sheriffs in Florida-
the Deputy Sheriff of the
Year-to Madison County
Deputy John Sleigher Jr.
Deputy Sleigher is originally
from Pennsylvania.
This award is reserved for
outstanding individuals who
have distinguished them-
selves through exemplary
performance of their duties.
The job of the committee
selecting an individual to re-
ceive the award is not an easy
one, as numerous nomina-
tions are submitted from the
67 Sheriffs' offices for con-
sideration. Committee mem-
bers, made up of veteran law
enforcement, look for those
who serve the office of Sher-
iff with dedication and devo-
tion.
After hearing the story
about the actions of Deputy:
Sleigher, which led his Sher-
iff to nominate him, they
agreed he was worthy of
recognition.
At the awards banquet,
held at the Daytona Beach
Hilton, Deputy Sleigher and
his family watched a video,.
re-enactment of the incident
that led to his nomination.
Then, before the audience of
500 Sheriffs, spouses and law
enforcement elite, Deputy
Sleigher received a hand-
some plaque and check for
$1,000.
Read on for more about
Deputy Sleigher's heroic ac-
tions.
: Domestic incident esca-
lates
On the night of Oct. 5,
2005, Deputy Sleigher'was
dispatched to assist in -what,.
was reported to be a verbal
domestic in a rural neighbor-
hood of Madison County.
While en route, Deputy
Sleigher learned that the call
had escalated and the suspect
was now holding a knife to
his victim's neck.
As he. arrived at the ad-
dress, Deputy Sleigher saw a
white female holding a baby
in her arms and standing at
the end of the driveway. She
told. the deputy that her moth-
er's boyfriend was inside and
he had been threatening her
mother. The boyfriend was
holding a butcher knife to her
mother's throat and said he
would kill her if he saw any
police.
The woman in the drive-


way said she had not heard
her mother's voice for some
time and 'assumed he had
stabbed her. Then she added,
"You're probably going to
have to shoot him."
Deputy Sleigher drew his
.40 caliber Beretta pistol and
prepared to enter a door on
the double wide home. He
said his thought was that if
the suspect had already killed
the victim, then the man
might be waiting inside to
ambush law enforcement.
What happened next took
place only in a matter of
about 20 seconds, but as any
deputy will tell you,- these
types of confrontations feel
like they last much longer.
The door that Deputy
Sleigher entered opened to
the living room. As he
stepped in, he heard a faint
cry coming from *another
room and' moved toward it.
At the opening of the kitchen,
he saw a white male strad-
dling a white female on the
floor, holding an 8-inch blade
on the left side of her neck.
The man's face was close to
hers, so they were chest-to-
chest.
Sleigher yelled for the man
to drop the knife, but the sus-
pect held the knife closer and
indicated he planned to kill
the woman.. Again, Sleigher
ordered him to put the knife
down, but the suspect made
eye contact with the deputy
and said, "Shoot me or she
dies."
Knowing he didn't have a
clear shot, Sleigher moved
closer and ordered the sus-
pect to put down the knife.
The ,man stared back at
Sleigher with a crazed ex-
pression. He then let out a
type of war, cry, uad arched
back as if to get momentum
for a stabbing motion. Now
with a clear shot, Deputy
Sleigher fired two. rounds
into the suspect's right side,
below his armpit, but the bul-
lets didn't seem to faze the
man. Instead, he pulled back
more and kept the knife posi-
tioned in a stabbing motion.
SSeeing that the suspect was
about to lash out, Deputy
Sleigher lunged forward to-
ward the knife, and grabbed
the victim's left bicep. He
pulled her out from under-
neath the suspect with one
hand, while simultaneously
discharging another four
rounds into the suspect's
chest and upper torso. Incred-
'ibly, all the shots from


Deputy Sleigher's gun were
fired from an almost kneeling
position and all hit the sus-
pect.
The man collapsed and
rolled onto his back.
Now holding the victim
against his chest, Deputy
Sleigher pulled the woman
into the dining room and
checked her for injuries.
Amazingly, she had not been
stabbed or shot. He called
dispatch and advised, "shots
fired, suspect down, send
EMS."
Deputy Sleigher then es-
corted the victim out of the
house.
Violence, threats a pattern
Investigators following up
on the shooting were able to.
paint a more complete pic-
ture of the incident. The vic-
tim and suspect had been dat-
ing for almost a year. A med-
ically diagnosed paranoid.
schizophrenic who refused to
take his medication, the man
had a history of abuse in this
and previous relationships.
An ex girlfriend reported
that, for a time, the suspect
had been hard working and
supported their two children.
But he drank regularly and
threatened her. He had physi-
cally abused his own body by
cutting and burning himself.
And, he once attempted sui-
cide by cutting his wrist. He
told his then-girlfriend that
he was: afraid to commit sui-
cide because he thought he
would go to hell.
The relationship of the
suspect and his victim had
been rocky. The: man. had
been physically abusive to
the'victim on numerous oc-
casions, convincing her to
quit her job ,f five years be-
.cause of ls paiauoia tlat she'
was cheating on him. They
moved frequently, following
his roofing jobs, but he be-
came increasingly paranoid
and abusive. On several prior
occasions he had threatened
her with a knife to the throat.
She managed to get away
from him for two months,
but he eventually found her
and they moved in together.
The .night of the incident,
the mother, daughter and
boyfriend had been drinking
beer together and playing
cards. The suspect had con-'
sumed about two six packs
and the couple had started ar-
guing. He was accusing her
of infidelity and said he had
evidence that she had been
fooling around on him.

The woman was trying to
get her boyfriend to leave,
but the man's temper became
violent. He grabbed his vic-
tim by the back of the hair
and pinned her against the
counter, holding the knife to
her throat. The daughter tried
to intervene, but the suspect
pushed her out of the way
and said he would kill her
mother "as soon as the cops
get here." The daughter re-
trieved 'her infant from the
bedroom and called 911. She
overheard the suspect saying


things. to her mother like, -
"You are the last one I will
ever be with; there will be no
one else."
When the victim tried to
get away. from her
boyfriend, they both landed
on the kitchen floor, which
is when the suspect strad-
dled her and pinned her
down.
Training key to successful
response
It's clear from this story
that Madison County Sher-
iff's Deputy John Sleigher's


actions were the result of
training he's received in his
seven-year law enforcement
career-plus four years in the
military. Deputy Sleigher
credits this combination for
helping him prepare mental-
ly for the incident as well as
recover quickly following
the confrontation.
He says he is now using
what he's learned from this
and other critical incidents
to build a Sheriff's Office
Tactical Team in Madison
County.

VA receives 2006 Innovations in Government Award


The Department of Veterans
Affairs' (VA) model system of
electronic health records, de-
veloped with extensive in-
volvement of front-line
health-care providers, has won
the prestigious "Innovations
in American Government
Award." The annual award,
sponsored by Harvard Univer-
sity's Ash Institute for Demo-
cratic Governance and Inno-
vation at the Kennedy School
of Government and adminis-
tered in partnership with the
Council for Excellence in
Government, honors excel-
lence and creativity in the
public sector.
"This great honor is testi-
mony to the vision of health
care professionals throughout


VA," said the Honorable R.
James Nicholson, Secretary of
Veterans Affairs. "Our elec-
tronic health records are with-
out peer and ensure that our
nation's veterans receive the
best care this country can pro-
vide."
While health-care costs in
the United States continue to
soar, VA is reducing costs and
errors while increasing safety
and 'efficiency.
Outside of VA, because pa-
tient records are not readily
available, one out of seven
Americans ends up hospital-
ized when outpatient care is
all that's:needed. For the same
reason, one out of five lab
tests is needlessly repeated
outside the VA system. And


while the costs of health care
continue to soar for most
Americans, the VA is reducing
costs, reducing errors, and be-
coming the model for what
modern health care manage-
ment and delivery should look
like.
"The involvement of front-
line providers, use of perfor-
mance measures and universal
use of electronic health
records have enabled VA to set
the national benchmark in
quality of care" said Dr.:
Jonathan Perlin, VA Under
Secretary for Health. "The
electronic records system is
called VistA, and it is an es-
sential part of VA's commit-
ment to giving every patient
safe, effective, efficient, com-


Forest Land Enhancement


Program sign-up underway


The Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services recently
announced a program that
will assist forest landowners
in the management of their
property. The department's
Division of Forestry will.hold
a sign-up for enrollment in
the Forest Land Enhancement
Program (FLEP) through
Sept. 15.
The program, authorized
under the 2002 Farm Bill, is
available to non-industrial
private forest landowners on a
75-25 cost share basis for
most practices. Eligible prac-
tices include, but are not lim-
ited to: site preparation, tree
planting, and prescribed burn-
ing activities. Landowners
who own at least 10 acres but
no more that 10,000 acres of
land who have a multiple-re-
source practice plan Will be
eligible to receive finding as-
sistance under FLEP. A maxi-


mum of $10,000 will be avail-
able for each qualifying
landowner over the life of the
program as reimbursement
for incurred expenses for ap-
proved practices.
Almost half of the state's
14 million acres of forestland
is owned by private non-in-
dustrial forest landowners.
According to national, re-
gional and statewide
landowner surveys, most for-
est landowners don't have a
management plan for their
property. The state's alloca-
tion under the program will
be used for implementation of
forest practices prescribed in
existing or newly. developed
management plans.,
"It benefits everyone when
an approach stressing best
management practices is in
place for forested property,"
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commission-


er Charles H. Bronson
said. "The forests are a criti-
cal natural resource in Flori-
da, and it is important to pre-
serve them as well as :nitigate
any potential wildfire dan-
ger."
Landowners can obtain ap-
plication forms from their lo-
cal Division of Forestry office
and from other cooperating
agencies. The Division of
Forestry's foresters will pro-
vide technical assistance to
landowners and will be the lo-
cal contact person- for partici-.
pating landowners. For more
information, contact David
Smith, Program Manager
850-414-9907 or Bonnie
Stine, CFA Supervisor, 850-
414-9912 both in Tallahassee,

passionate health care."
VA's complete adoption of
electronic health records and
performance measures have
resulted in high-quality, low-
cost health care with high pa-
tient satisfaction. A recent
RAND study found that VA
outperforms all other sectors
ofAmerican health care across
a spectrum of 294 measures of
quality in disease prevention
and treatment. For six straight
years, VA has led private-sec-
tor health care in the indepen-
dent American Customer Sat-
isfaction Index.
Electronic health records
also provide numerous other
benefits in cost, quality and
access to care. The cost of
maintaining the system is $80
per patient per year, less than
the cost of one unnecessarily
repeated lab test. In the last 10
years, VistA's efficiencies
have offset cost increases as-
sociated with a 100 percent in-
crease in the number of veter-
ans receiving VA care.


For example,, VistA has
helped VA save 6,000 lives by
improving rates of pneumonia
vaccination among veterans
with emphysema, cutting
pneumonia hospitalizations in
half and reducing costs by $40
million per year. Patient wait-
ing times have declined while
customer service improved,
and access to care has in-
creased because of on-line
availability of health informa-
tion.
In addition to saving money,
VistA saves lives and ensures
continuity of care even under
the most extreme circum-
stances. Many of the thou-
sands of residents who fled the
Gulf Coast because of Hurri-
cane Katrina left behind vital
health records. Records for the
40,000 veterans in the area
were almost immediately
available to clinicians across
the country, even though the
VA Medical Center in Gulf-
port, Miss. was destroyed and

If stroke attacks, act FAST


The nation's emergency
physicians want to remind
Americans to act FAST if
they think they are or some-
one near them is having a
stroke, otherwise known as
a brain attack. Time lost is
brain lost: A one-minute de-
lay could cost you two mil-
lion brain cells. Knowing


stroke's symptoms and act-
ing fast can make the differ-
ence between life and death,
for you or someone you
know.
Remember the acronym
FAST for the most common
stroke symptoms:
F for Face: Weakness or a
drooping, crooked smile;


sudden loss of vision in one
or both eyes
A for Arms: Weak or
drooping arm
S for, Speech:' Slurred
speech, or inability to un-
derstand or be understood,
inability to'speak
T for Time: Time = Brain.
Call 9-1-1 immediately.

Almost half of all stroke
patients arrive at the ER by
their own means. Dr. Ed-
ward C. Jauch, Associate
Director of Research in the
Department of Emergency
Medicine at the University
of Cincinnati College of
Medicine, strongly advises
against it. He says, "If you
or someone near .you is ex-
hibiting any sign of stroke,
call 911: Transport by .an
ambulance is best for get-
ting to the ER. Patients ar-
riving by ambulance receive
faster evaluation by ER staff
and physicians, and undergo
CAT scans .faster upon ar-
rival at the ER. In addition,
the EMS personnel can mo-
bilize resources-such as
CAT scan and Stroke
Teams-at the hospital ahead
of the patient's arrival. If
you arrive on foot, you may
lose precious time waiting
to be seen. Remember:
- time=brain. "
Stroke afflicts 700,000
people per ear in this coun-
try, killing 157,000 of them.


Stroke is also a leading
cause of long-term disabili-
ty, and the longer you wait
to get help, the higher your
risk of permanent disability.
Stroke does not discrimi-
nate, and although some
people are at higher risk
than others due to lifestyle
and family history, anyone
can have a stroke. Treatable
risk factors include: hyper-
tension, diabetes,.high cho-
lesterol and heart problems.
People often wait to see if
their symptoms will go
,away and unwittingly put
themselves in greater dan-
ger. Symptoms that last for
only a few minutes and then
subside may indicate a tran-
sient ischemic attack (TIA).
TIAs are serious medical
e\enfts and require treat-
merit; they are also a poten-
tial warning sign of more
dangerous stroke in the fu-
ture. Seeking medical. care
during a TIA may help
physicians prevent future
stroke
.If you are having a stroke,


you may not be able to com-
municate what is happening
in order to get help. There-
fore it is essential that
everyone recognize the
symptoms of stroke. If
someone near you is experi-
encing stroke symptoms,
call 9-1-1 or your local
Emergency Medical Ser-
vices number FAST. You
could just save a life.

ical specialty society repre-

Hurricane insurance fraud brings arrests


The Florida Department of
Financial Services announced
recently the arrests of two li-
censed public adjusters who
fraudulently collected more
than $400,000 from two in-
surance companies by sub-
mitting bogus contractor
agreements. The arrests were
made by detectives in the De-
partment of Financial Ser-

La F-


vices, Division of Insurance
Fraud.
"Insurance fraud leads to
higher insurance premiums
which hit every Floridian in
the pocketbook," said Florida
Department of Financial Ser-
vices Chief Financial Officer
Tom Gallagher, who oversees
the. department. "We will
continue to follow every lead


regarding possible fraudulent
acti iti and send a. strong,
message that such abuse of
our citizens will not be toler-
ated."
Jose Manuel Soler and
Ariel L. Fernandez. of Coast
to Coast Public Adiusters, al-
legedly submitted approxi-
mateh\ 75 forged contractor
agreements, resulting in an
o\erpaymnent by -Citizens In-
surance of approximately
3 1-4,596.54. Detectives- said
an additional 29 such docu-
ments \\ere submitted to the
Tower Hill Group resulting in
a loss of approximately
$125,281.81.
.Detecti\es said the forged


contractor agreements were
submitted in order to obtain
an ,additional 20 percent \of
the estimated claim for over-
head and profit. The. fraudu-
lent contractor agreements
stemmed from real claims for
water pipe damage. Follow-
ing .each storm in 2004 and
2005, the Department of Fi-
nancial Services capped pub-
lic adjusters fees that could
be charged to storm victims
and implemented a 14-day
period for victims. to rescind
public adjuster contracts
without a penalty.
Both Soler and Fernandez
surrendered on, the charges
recently and were incarcerat-


ed in the Miami-Dade County
Jail. Each was charged with
104 counts of insurance fraud
(third degree), 104 counts of"
grand theft (third degree) and
one count of organized
scheme to defraud (first de-
gree) each. Bail was expected
to be set at $1,050,000. Addi-
tional arrests are anticipated.
The Department of Finan-
cial Services,. Division of In-.
surance Fraud, investigates
fraud in all tipes' f insur-
ance, including health, life,
auto, property and workers'
compensation. To report in-
formation about this case or

fraud case, call the depart-


ment's Fraud Fighters hotine
toll-free at 800-378-0445. A
