Yes. we.did notice the mis-
take on the frout page of the
Stiannee .Democrat on Fri-
day, Oct. .20. We really do
know how to spell "opts."
And, yes, we have proofread-
ers. We have spell-check (it
wouldn't have caught this
mistake). And, yes, it makes
us look bad. But most of all,
we didn't serve our readers
well.
Please accept our apology
for the error and know that
we will do our best to insure
our readers get the best in the
future.
Let us know what you
think about our coverage and
do let us know if we fail you.
That way, we can work hard-
er, to serve you better.
By the way. it eats at us
when a mistake like this
takes place, and we don't
take it lightly.
We'll wNTte "opts" 100
times on the chalkboard!

-.The entire Ray Mickel family would like to express sincere thanks to Debbie and Chip
Harris of Harris Funeral Home, Inc. in Live Oak for the love and caring expressed to us
during our entire funeral process.
They helped in our planning of the viewing and the funeral. They helped our younger

Listening to


our readers
On Monday, we at the Suwannee Democrat
met with some of the most important people in
the world, our readers! We had asked readers to
join us that morning in an invitation in the paper
the previous week. There were less than a dozen
people attending, but they counted, they were .
there to tell us what they thought about our
newspaper.
Here's what we learned from this group: They
want to know why things happen the way they
do in city and county government. They want to
know why the streets of Live Oak and Suwan-
nee County are littered. and even why the road-
ways with Adopt-A-Highway designations aren't
clean. Do the people assigned to the roadway
ever clean up? They wanted us ,to tell them why
our taxes are going up, and they want to-know
what the county is going to do with the newly
generated revenue. Some wanted to know why
their paper wasn't delivered on time. Some'
wanted to know ho\\ \e choose what goes in
the paper and especially on the front page. They
wanted to be educated on what is in the paper
for those who just read the Arrest Report and no
* more, There were questions about sports cover-
age and Suwannee High Football. They asked us
to make sure we give directions to events, be-
cause there are new people in our community
who don't know the landmarks we old-timers all
know. We discussed proofing the paper or lack
thereof in some opinions. We mostly learned
they want to continue reading the Suwannee De-
moc;at, but want to see more things of interest.
to them included. :
In response to these concerns we will develop
a plan to implement as-many of these requests.
as possible. We will work to inforni our readers
of news they need to know to make educated
decisions and then take that education and be-:
come more active in this community we call '
home.
Look for the new features soon, and next
month, please join us in discussion at the Dixie
Grill. We want you to be part.of the discussion,
and feel the Suwannee Democrat is your paper,
a tool to learn more about our community and a
newspaper that keeps you informed so you can
take action.
The date and time to meet with us 'will be an-
nounced earlier and more frequently prior to
next month's event.
Have you noticed the new things we've recent-
ly implemented in the Suwannee Democrat?
Have you read the new Q & A feature each
week, or have you 'guessed, "What is it?" Do
you like the new puzzle and the new entertain-
ment picks on the TV listings page? What do
you think about our sports coverage, our gov-
ernment coverage or even our spelling?
Let us know. Our names and e-mail addresses
are always in the paper, and we're located across
the street from the Dixie Grill on US 90 east.
That address is 211 Howard Street East. Plug
that into a mapping/direction site on the Internet
and you'll find us. Call us at 386-362-1734 or-
800-525-4182, arid we'll give you directions.
Thanks for telling us what you think, keep it
coming, and please keep reading.

Amendment 3 crucial to preserving


voters' and taxpayers'


TALLAHASSEE The growing
number of new amendments 'being
made to Florida's Constitution, of
which only 10% have passed with the
approval of a majority of.registered
\ others, has created a threat to voters'
and ta\payers' constitutional rights.
'That's qpe of the findings of a Florida
Ta\\Vatch report. whichh concludes
that proposed Amendment 3 on thisi
November's ballot would pro\ ide -,
necessarN and reasonable voter safe-
guards against what it called "minori-.
ty rule."
"A small minority of registered vot-
ers is approving a vast majority of our
constitutional amendments," said Do-_
Sminic M. Calabro, President and CEO,
of the non-profit, non-partisan state
government watchdog group., "Flori-
da's current amendment process lacks
the checks and balances necessary to
ensure majority consensus and avoid
amendments supported by a vocal few
that could hobble the durability of
Florida's Constitution and the eco-
nomic, political, and social freedoms
of all Floridians for generations to
come," he said.
Amendment 3 would require that all
future amendments receive approval
from at least 60 percent of voters be-
fore passing, instead of the simple
majority needed right now. The re-
port concludes that Amendment 3
would be a reasonable increased stan-
dard. TaxWatch analysis found that
84 out of 103 of the amendments
passed since 1970, including seven
out of eight in 2004, would have
passed with a 60% supermajority re-
quirement.
The report included a review of
proposed constitutional amendments
dating back to 1970. It found that of.
the 103 amendments that passed, only
10 were approved by a majority of
Florida registered voters, often due to
low voter turnout. Yet a large majori-
ty of the amendments placed on the
ballot (78.0%) passed into law. Some.
amendments have passed with fewer
than 20% of registered voters approv-
ing.
"We have a higher standard to name
a city park than to amend Florida's
Constitution," added Calabro.


.The report found that Amendment 3
would: ,
Help assure'that there is broad pub-
lic support before changes are set in
constitutional stone,
Help maintain the Florida Constitu-
tion as the fundamental document that
contains the root guidelines from'
-which Florida should be governed,
and
Make it more difficult for special
interest grotips to effectuate changes
that benefit their narrowly defined
priorities at the expense of the majori-
ty of voters and taxpayers.
"Florida's initiative process is an
extraordinarily powerful tool that can
be manipulated by very focused, sin-
gle-issue, special-interest groups and
organizations that can essentially buy
their way onto the ballot," said Cal-
abro.. "Requiring a supermajority
vote is necessary to preserve voters'
rights."
The report notes that some of the
past successful initiatives have been
pushed by out-of-state interests.
These include the group ACORN
from California, with its successful
2004 Minimum Wage Amendment;
and Floridians for Human Farms, with'
its successful 2002 Pregnant Pigs
Amendment, for which the group re-
ceived well more than half of its $1.7
million funding from out of state in-
terests. ..
In addition to the six proposed
amendments on the November ballot,
the Florida Division of Elections cur-
rently lists 35 active initiatives that
could potentially make it to a future
ballot. These include lowering the
voting age to 16, abolishing alimony,
and requiring legislators to take and
pass the 10th grade FCAT test.
"Constitutional revision is not in-
tended to serve merely as a response
to the passing political emotions of
the moment or serve as a means to an
end desired by a limited group," said
Calabro.
The process can make it too easy to
amend the state constitution, weakens
the state Legislature, ties the hands of
the Governor, and limits the checks
and balances authority of the judicial
branch, according to the report.


rights

The TaxWatch report also refutes
arguments posed against Amendment
3. including assertions of the difficul-
ty in collecting the number of re-
quired petition signatures and, the le-
gal review of the, state supreme court.
However, according to the report, 11
of the past 22 citizen initiatives have
occurred in jist the past two elections.
Also, the report notes that the Florida
Constitution can be amended by five
different processes.
Florida TaxWatch also warns of the
hidden costs manr anmeidments carn
The report cites high-speed rail as an
example where, voters in 2004, once
armed with information on the true
costs, reversed their earlier decision-
and repealed the first high-speed rail
amendment from 2000.
The report also warned of the "Cali-
forniacation" of Florida. California
otherss o, er the past twenty years have
passed a number of propositions ear-
marking billions of dollars for specif-
ic programs, which is cited as a major
factor in California's fiscal problems.
The report notes that "such measures
do not allow the Legislature,' with the
attendantfchecks and balances, to
change spending priorities when the
circumstances warrant. Also, by lock-
ing in spending, basically exempting
it from budget cuts, it. limits budget
flexibility, making dealing with short-
falls more difficult."
Florida TaxWatch has urged a high-
er voter threshold for the past 12
years.

residents. The shelter is full once again. There
are cats and dogs of all ages and sizes, and kit-
tens and puppies are available, some at the shel-
ter, others are in foster homes awaiting place-
ment. They need to find loving forever homes as
soon as possible. SCAC is NOT a no-kill shelter
due to the lack of space and tremendous funding
needed for caring for large numbers of animals
and must adopt out these animals.
Pet of the week
The pet of the week is Cooper, a very lovable
male Shepherd-mix pup. Cooper was found at
the county landfill in the tire pile. When Cooper
came in, he was underweight, dehydrated,
loaded with fleas and in need of love and meds.
His sister, Michelin, was found two weeks earli-
er in the same tire pile and was adopted by a
very loving family. Cooper was out there for an
extra two weeks, and his condition was very se-
rious when found. He has been nursed back to
health, is adorable and in need of a lov ing forev-
er home. He is about three months old, black
and tan and ready for hugs and doggie kisses.
Shelter is important part of the county and
can always use donations
The shelter wish list for items needed the
most and alda\s needed includes: non-clump-
ing litter, cat litter boxes, cat carriers ('all sizes),
dog crates (all sizes), stainless steel dog bowls

Robert Bridges
Democrat Reporter
The Live Oak Police De-
partment (LOPD) will soon
be represented on the county's
multi-agency drug task force.
The City Council voted Oct.
10 to assign an officer full-
time to the force, headed by
Sheriff Tony Cameron.
The task force consists of
four sheriffs deputies, one
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) agent
and now one LOPD officer.
Cameronwwelcomed the city
on board. "This way we 'won't
wind up working drugs in the
same area on the same day
and pull our guns on each
other," he said.
"Narcotics and drugs aren't
issues with boundary lines,"
said Chief of Police Nolan
McLeod. "By teaming up.
.more can be accomplished."
The task force often works
undercover, performing con-
trolled drug buys, for exam-'
ple. It is funded in part by an
FDLE grant. However, the
grant has been reduced in re-
cent years and now totals


$52,000 a year. The sheriffs
office provides the rest of the
funding, said Cameron. The
county will provide the
LOPD officer a vehicle,
phone and clothing al-
lowance.
The Sheriffs office will
also give the city 20 percent
of the proceeds from sizable
cash or property confisca-
tions, although Cameron de-
clined to define "sizable."
McLeod will assign an offi-
cer to the force by Nov. 10.
"There's a lot of debate as
to whether we'll win [the war
on drugs]," McLeod added.
"We have to approach it like
it's a winnable battle. If we,
don't, we're just going back-
wards."
"I don't think you will ever
achieve your goal, and your
goal is to eliminate [drugs],"
Cameron said. But, he added,
"I think we can rmane it very
difficult to purchase drugs in
Suwannee County."

he was dispatched to 71766
222nd Circle after a person at
that address called dispatch to
say they had shot someone
and they had crawled away.
The deputy said when he ar-
rived he found Arpad Balint
lying in the road and bleeding
from an injury to his stomach
and back. Balint told the
deputy he had been shot and
pointed toward a house locat-
ed at the address where the
phone call came from, Zim-
merman's report said. Balint
told the deputy he had not
threatened anyone.
Two Suwannee County Fire
Rescue paramedics arrived
and successfully removed
Balint from the scene without
further incident while the
deputy stood guard.
Once two other deputies ar-
rived on scene, Zimmerman
was told the man who shot
Balint was at his home and all
three deputies went to meet
him. As the deputies ap-
proached, Boyington met
them in the driveway, walking
towards them. "What's up?"
Boyington asked the deputies,
who immediately required
him to lie on the ground and
Then handcuffed him. After
bding advised of his rights,
Boyington was interviewed
and then arrested in -Balint's
shooting.
Zimmerman said in his re-
port that an Intoxilizer breath
sample was taken from Boy-
ington, which showed .107
percent and .014 percent or
more than two points above
the .08 state level for being
too drunk to drive.


The Sullivan's will get together Saturday,
October the 28th at Midway Baptist Church
on CR-4Q5 in Lafayette County. Come bring
your favorite covered dish, enjoy the food

Treatment for childhood ear infections
Ear infections occur very commonly during childhood, particularly in
the first 2 to 4 years of life. Children who are bottle-fed, attend
daycare, or are exposed to cigarette smoke may be at an increased risk
of an ear infection. Otitis media is the medical term for middle ear
inflammation. Acute otitis media is an ear infection in which fluid, or
pus, accumulates in the middle ear. Symptoms of this type of ear
infection include eardrum redness, pain, and fever. Irritability,
decreased appetite, trouble sleeping, and mild temporary hearing loss
are other signs of a possible ear infection.
Middle ear infections sometimes resolve within 2 to 3 days without
medical treatment. However, antibiotics may be prescribed for 5 to 10
days of treatment, depending on the individual child. Antibiotics will
not get rid of fluid in the ear and will only minimally reduce pain. For
these reasons, along with many others, doctors may recommend pain
relieving medications and wait to see if the infection resolves in a few
days before prescribing antibiotics. Nonprescription pain relievers and
fever reducers, such as acetaininophen or ibuprofen, may be given to
alleviate the discomfort associated with an ear infection. Antibiotics
are more likely to be prescribed for children with more severe or
recurrent ear infections. 302197-F

val. that promotes the culture
and heritage of India.

that this youth group "has
shown dedication and self-
lessness through their volun-
tary acts for the ICEC,
Gainesville and surrounding
communities. Iin addition to
* their iotuctiimies grilling u it
school work, they take time
out of their schedules to help

Jackson is 6-1 overall and 3-0

the Dogs may have a shot,

Dogs
Continued From Page 1B

Justin Starling led the
bulldogs with 14 tackles. Lee
Laxton had 12 and Stephen
Cherry 10.
The Sports
Connection/WQHL players of
the game, as selected by
WQHL radio, were lineman
Tom Cheek, linebacker
Justin Starling and tight end
Gabe Galloway.
As usual, things started
badly for the Bulldogs. Bish-
op Kenny took the opening
kick-off and drove 80 yards
in just over three minutes for
the early 7-0 lead.
Back came the Bulldogs: A
30-yard run by Yulee capped
a nine-play 80-yard drive to
pull within one at 4:06 of the
first quarter. It wasn't clear
he'd get in, but a slick move
at the 10 left a Kenny defend-
er reaching for air. The
Cullen Boggus kick tied it at
seven.
The Crusaders looked as if
they would answer with ease.
Within four plays Kenny was
at the Suwannee 29. Stukel
dropped back as if he would.
pass on the next play, theii
ran untouched into the end
zone. But a holding call
negated the score, and Kenny.
began to self-destruct.
From the Suwannee 19, an-,
other holding call pushed the
Crusaders back to the Dogs'
29. Consecutive flags for de-
lay of game and false start
backed Kenny up to the Bull-
dog 39.
Two plays later, Jason'
Cherry snagged a Stukel
pass in the end zone, but pass
interference against Suwan-
nee gave the Crusaders anoth-
er shot. Three plays later
Stukel targeted Clay Roberts
in .the end zone, but a perfect-
ly-timed Cherry hit knocked
the ball loose and saved a
touchdown. A field goal gave
the Crusaders a 10-7 lead 10
minutes before the half.
Sjwannee went tfour-and-
out, then Kenny came back


with a vengeance. The Cru-
saders took over on their own
45. Three plays later, Stukel
took off up the middle un-
touched and ran 45 yards for
the score.
Suwannee got to the Kenny
26 with four seconds left in
the half, but a Roundtree pass
fell incomplete. 17-7 Cru-
saders at the half.
The Bulldogs traded punts
with the Crusaders to start the
second half, then got to work
on some second-half magic.
Following a Kenny punt
late in the third, the Dogs
took over at their own 12.
From that point on Suwannee
couldn't be stopped.
Runs by Yulee and Allen,
got the Dogs to the Suwannee
22. Then Allen broke free
and sprinted to the Kenny 35.
From there Roundtree hit
Galloway at the five to set up
the score. Allen fumbled at
the goal line but Cook recov-
ered in the end zone to make
it 17-14 at 5.42 of the third.
'The Dogs were just warm-
ing up on offense. Now the
defense got hot. The Cru-
saders drove to their own 45,
before Justin Starling, Lee
Laxton, Bryne Allen and
Marcus Walker ganged up,
on Stukel in the backfield to
force third and 16. The Cru-'
saders never seriously threat-
ened again. ; .
On the Dogs' next posses-
sion, Yulee, Allen and
Roundtree divided the rush-,
ing chores about evenly in
driving 60 yards in 10 plays
for the go-ahead score.
Roundtree's eight yard burst
up the middle made it 21-17
with 7:45 remaining.
Bishop Kenny got one
more shot. The Crusaders
drove from the 18 to their
own 47 before Starling and
Cheek snuffed out the threat
with a sack of Stukel.
Four minutes remained.
Now all the Dogs had to do
was kill some time.
The Bishop Kennm punt
rolled dead at the Suwannee ,


11. Consecutive Roundtree
runs got the Dogs a critical
first down at the 21, and an
unsportsmanlike conduct call
added 15 to put the'ball at the
Suwannee 36.
Another run by Roundtree
got the Dogs to the 48. It was
the last first down they'd
need. Two plays later
Roundtree took a knee to end
it.
The crowd roared, but the
real excitement was on the
field. The players were jump-
ing and shouting and the
coaches were locked in bear
hugs.
"We've been a pretty good
second-half team," Bennett
said. "We had to make some
plays, and we made them."
As for Stukel, Bennett had
nothing but respect. "It's hard

said halftime adjustments
made the difference on de-
fense, but also speculated that
Stukel, who plays on both
sides of the ball, might have
been fatigued late in the
game. "I think he has to get
tired a little bit," Bennett said.
But not the Bulldogs.
They've shown all season how
tough they are in the late
stages. If they're in it at half-
time, they can win. Watch to-
morrow night to see if they
can keep it close against Jack-
son for at least, the first two
quarters.

Manatee collisions won't get law-abiding boaters citations


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) and US Fish
and Wildlife Service (FWS)
said today, boaters who com-
ply with manatee speed zones
won't get citations if they
strike manatees.
Officials said cooler
weather will cause manatees
to begin their annual migra-
tion from open water to
warm-water springs and
power plant discharges, leav-
ing the slow-moving sea
cows vulnerable to speeding
and even slow-moving ves-
sels. Law-abiding boaters
who strike a manatee or ob-
serve a manatee hit by anoth-
er vessel can call the FWC's
Wildlife Alert Hotline toll-
free at 888-404-3922 without
fear of a citation. Boaters
should be prepared to pro-

ASK DR. MANTOOTH|


Q: Is it okay to let a baby go to sleep with a
bottle? '
A: If the bottle contains anything but water, you
could be doing your baby a grave disservice
by letting him or her have a steady flow of
liquid on baby teeth. You could be putting them
on the road toward Early Childhood Caries
(ECC), the name for te decay that affects
baby teeth. The cavities are caused by teeth's
prolonged exposure to sweetened juices.
Parents tend to overlook the problem until the
teeth are so painful that they have to be
extracted. In a recent study conducted by the
University of Rochester Medical Center on 16
2 toddlers from inner city families, nearly 40
percent showed tooth decay attributed to
excessive drinking from bottles.
Another important consideration is that
children should make their first visit to the
dentist with six months of the eruption of their
first tooth. Many, though, don't make that first
visit until they are three to five years old. A first
visit can last between 15 and 30 minutes and
will include examination of the child's teeth,
bite, gums and jaw alignment. Putting off the
first visit .does not necessarily mean saving
money: The sooner problems are detected the
cheaper they are to fix.

vide the incident location,
weather conditions, boat
specifications and other rele-
vant information.
FWC will attempt to recov-
er, and if possible, rehabili-
tate the animal.
"We want to assure boaters
who operate vessels lawfully
and responsibly they should
not feel reluctant to report
accidental collisions with
manatees," FWC executive.
director Ken Haddad said.
"The information we gather
from reported accidents. can


help guide manatee cdnser-
vation efforts in the future."
In addition, Haddad said,
prompt response to an acci-
dent may increase the chance
of success in attempts to res-
cue and care for the injured
animal and eventually return
it to the wild.

law must be held account-

Hamilton said. "We will treat
accidents as what they are-ac-.
cidents. We hope boaters will
report them to us so we have'
a chance to rescue the animal
and a chance to learn more
about how to protect the
species."
Collisions with boats are a
significant source of injury
and mortality in manatees.

This season, Gulf stur-
geons have again made
headlines for their millions-
of-years-old antics of jump-
ing out of the water. During
the spring and. summer of
2006, at least eight boaters
were injured by incidental
collisions with these amaz-
ing high flyers that can leap
six feet out of the water. As
a result, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) posted signs,


cautioning boaters to go
slow in areas where Gulf
sturgeon are known to con-
gregate and jump.
Gulf sturgeon have been
federally listed as a threat-
ened species since 1991 and
protected by Florida law
since 1984. These protec-

Alan Huff, an FWC re-
search biologist, conducted
some of the pioneering re-
search on Gulf sturgeons. He
said they can live more than
40 years, weigh 200 pounds
and approach 8 feet in
length. Sturgeons can't be
mistaken for any other fami-
ly of fish due to their five
rows of armor-like scutes
(large, bony scales). Like
sharks, their internal skele-
ton is made of cartilage.
They have whisker-like bar-

Females spawn at about
seven years old, males at
five. A 200-pound female
can produce 40 pounds of
eggs (more than a million)
per year, and sturgeon eggs
are the raw material for
highly valued caviar. How-
ever, females may skip re-
production for a year or
more. When all is aligned in
early spring-proper river wa-

eggs to be fertilized by
males to sustain the popula-

largest concentration of Gulf
sturgeons, but they reproduce
in other rivers around the
Gulf of Mexico to the Mis-
sissippi River. They spend
nearly eight months in the
rivers where they were
.spawned, scarcely feeding or
not at all.
When Thanksgiving rolls
around and Gulf water tem-
peratures cool, some very
hungry sturgeons move off
shore to go on a feeding and
growth binge. They consume
worms, small crustaceans,
mollusks and other inverte-
brates as they cruise along
the Gulf of Mexico's bottom.
They use their barbels to
sense concentrations of food
and extend their suction-
hose-like mouths to- suck up
enough food to survive their
next foray into Florida's Gulf
Coast rivers the following
spring, when they again pret-
ty-much stop eating.
For a recent article and an.
upcoming National Gpo-
graphic television show, Lov-
gren asked numerous experts
why sturgeons jump. Among
the speculative answers he
and others have received are:
for joy; for social interactions
and to communicate with
other sturgeon; to knock off
pesky parasites; to flush
muck out of their mouths and
gills after bottom feeding; to
avoid perceived predators-al-
though what, other than
gators and manatees, might
be big enough to startle them
is unclear.
In the Apalachicola River,
since the mid 1950s, the Jim
Woodruff Lock and Dam and
diminished water flows from
Georgia have cut off one of
the major reproductive
grounds for this threatened
species. Populations appear
to be increasing in the
Suwannee and
Choctawhatchee rivers. The
Apalachicola River popular
tion appears to have a more
cyclical increase and de-
crease in 3 ear-classes,'per-
haps related to the darn's.wa-
ter-release schedule and wa-
ter flow rates.
Sturgeon fossils date back
to the dinosaur era. After the
continents split into their cur-
rent configurations many
millions, of years ago, stur-
geon species were confined
to the northern hemisphere,
and Atlantic and Gulf stur-
geon populations evolved
into subspecies.
-Sturgeon flesh and eggs
provided' an important source
of food and commerce for
thousands of years. Today,
human interactions with Gulf
sturgeon are restricted to ob-
servation and research. Har-
vest is prohibited.
If you find a dead stur-
geon, please, report it to toll-
free 800-367-4461 (or e-mail
TagReturn@MyFWC.com),
especially if there is a tag on
it, so scientists can learn
more about this species' life
habits and distribution. To re-
port collisions with jumping
sturgeon, call toll-free 888-
404-FWCC or 888-404-3922.
Hopefully, conservation.
stewardship will enable us to
coexist with Gulf sturgeons
for a long time to come, and
maybewe'll really learn why
they jump.

Shands, 93.7 K-Country


secure big names for



benefit concert series


When Country Music Award-winning,
Grammy-nominated artist Brad Paisley takes
the stage in Gainesville next spring, he will
be doing more than crooning "The World"
and other hit songs. He will be raising money
for kids in need. Paisley, along with singer,
songwriter Phil Vassar, has committed to per-
forming in the first annual 93.7 K COUN-
TRY Jamboree Hopes & Dreams Benefit
Concert for Shands Children's Hospitals.
93.7 K COUNTRY and Shands HealthCare
have partnered to bring the artists to' the
Alachua County Fairgrounds on Saturday,
March 31, 2007. During the daylong event,


15,000 concertgoers will be treated to perfor-
mances from a total of five acts, three of
which will be announced at a later date.
"All of us at 93.7 K COUNTRY are very
excited about being part of this. We feel it
will be the biggest single-day music event in
the history of North Central Florida," said
93.7 K COUNTRY General Manager Jim
Robertson. "I think attendees will find the
ticket value is incredible, with the lineup pro-
viding one hit song after another."
All proceeds from the concert will benefit
Shands Children's Hospitals. Shands Health-
Care Director of Development Michael Jes-


sup said they hope to raise more
than $400,000 to enhance medical
programs that provide world-class
care for children who rely on Shands.
"Shands has a long tradition of providing
hope through outstanding pediatric health-
care," Jessup said. "We are recognized as a
leader in areas such as pediatric lung disease,
diabetes, cardiology, cancer, neurology, ge-
netics and organ transplantation. Revenues
from this concert will allow Shands to contin-
ue to offer a better quality of life to sick chil-
dren and their families."
The concert is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.


evening. Tickets will be available for pur-
chase through Ticketmaster beginning Satur-
day, Dec. 2, at 10 a.m. Advance-purchase
tickets will be $55. Tickets purchased at the
door will cost $70.

TRY Jamboree is available on-line at

DEP launches mercury switch recovery from scrap vehicles Paralounge


48 second removal process

can prevent pollution


The Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP)
recently announced a
statewide initiative to remove
mercury switches from vehi-
cles during automotive recy-
cling. Part of a national pro-
gram approved by the US
Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) in August
2006, the National Vehicle
Mercury Switch Recovery
Program (N\ ISRPi is de-
signed to remove mercury-
containing light switches
from scrap vehicles before
they are flattened, shredded
and melted to make new
steel. ......
"Vehicle rec;, clcrs and dis-
mantlers in Florida can play.


a critical role in reducing a
significant source of mercury
air emissions," said DEP
Deputy Secretary for Regula-
tory Programs and Energy
Mike Sole. "A potential envi-
ronmental hazard can be
avoided in the nmere seconds
it takes to remove a conve-
nience lighting switch from
scrap vehicles prior to recy-
cling them."
This week, DEP sent letters
to Florida vehicle recyclers
and dismantlers encouraging
them to take part in this im-
portant environmental initia-
tive. As part of the recovery
pirogiiam. die End of Lite Ve-
hicle Solutions Corporation
(ELVS), an organization cre-


ated by the auto industry, will
send collection buckets to
-Florida vehicle recyclers and
dismantlers that participate in
[the imnerciry switch collection
progiaim ELVS will arrange
fOi the mercury switches col-
lected at designated business-
es to be shipped and recycled
at no cost.
Pellet-sized mercury
switches can be found in
convenience lights in trunks
and hoods, as well as some
anti-lock brakes of certain
pre-2002 vehicles. National-
ly, it is estimated that there
are 35 million automotive
mercury switches currently in
vehicles today.
Recognizing the environ-
mental and health hazards of
mercuri, DEP has conducted
extensive research into the
sources of mercury emissions


and instituted advanced tech-
nology controls, leading to a
decrease in mercury emis-
sions from major emission
sources over the last ten
ears. Removing mercury
switches from scrap vehicles
prior .to recycling them can


further eliminate mercury
from the environment:

Fall fishing is fast, furious and FUN!


By: Capt. Brian Smith,
Big Bend Charters

The Joy of Fishing: Revisited
Last month I wrote about
the slump in the grouper fish-
ery and some alternatives to
making a better day offshore
fishing.
Well, now I'm happy to re-
port, the grouper fishing has
vastly improved. I've had the
best grouper fishing of 2006
occur since the beginning of
October. It is difficult to ex-
press how happy it makes me.
Over the past couple of weeks
we have been bringing back a
dozen or so keeper grouper
per trip. Both red and gag
grouper are being taken on
live pinfish and cut bait. Pin-
fish has been the most consis-
tent bait. We are also bringing
in some king fish and cobia.
Huge pink mouth grunts
(Florida snapper) are being
added in to make a good look-
ing box of fish. If you haven't
had a plate of fresh fried pink
mouth grunt lately, do your-
self a favor and take an hour
out of your offshore day to
catch a mess of them over any
hard bottom area. They are de-
licious.
Fishing can be hot one day
and cold the next but when
fishing is sub par for a long
period it can be depressing;
especially, if you happen to
fish for a living.
For a while even pink
mouth grunts weren't overly
cooperative. I was feeling like
Forrest Gump pre-hurricane. I
was working harder than ever'
to bring in what fish I had to
the dock. We did the alterna-
tives I wrote about. Some-
times the techniques worked
out as planned. Most of the
time I'd find myself .telling
folks what had happened in
the past when I did the same
trick and that same spot. Peo-
ple were smiling at the end of
the da\ but I felt their disap-.
poinimen! behind the smile. I
was far from happy with the
outcome myself. Thankfully,
most of the people had fished
with me during better times. A
couple of times I overheard,
"If he would have taken us to
water at this depth and fished.
with that bait, we'd have
caught fish."
They didn't realize I had
been there and done that earli-
er and it turned out to be a
wasted time. My lack. luster
catches weren't due to lack of
effort or wanting to save mon-
ey on gas or' not trying here,
there and everywhere with this
bait, and the other. It was what
it was. I was having trouble
like everybody else. But, it
hurt because I care.
Charles Lowe called me.


"Me, my brother, Curtis and
son, Evan are coming down
for your next available day
during the week!"
"Charles, I've got to be hon-
est, the fishing ain't that
good."
"I don't care if we don't
catch a fish, we're coming
down."
"The grouper bite hasn't
been..."
"I'd be just as happy catch-
ing grunts or anything, don't
worry about the grouper, let's
. just go have some fun."
"I think I can do that," I
mustered, wondering if I
could shake off the funk and
actually have fun.
Charles loves the outdoors
Fishing and hunting are mere-
ly excuses to be outdoors. I
believe the man could st nd
on the curb of a flooded park-
ing lot after a storm and cast a
Pop R to parallel yellow
. stripers and walk awaN
thinking after the next
storm those yellow
stripers might just* bite.
He isn't that crazy but af-
ter approximately 50
years of fishing, he has
come to appreciate every
aspect of fishing not just
the catching part.
His brother, Curtis, is
likewise a fishing enthu-
siast who would attempt "
to pull a red fish out of an
oyster bar choked creek us-
ing sewing.thread for fish-
ing line just to see the strike
and have that brief moment
with the fish.
Evan, the teenage son.
doesn't stand a chance. of
normal development. He'll be
a product of his environment:
maybe an American Steve Ir-
win of the fish ing world.
The three came down with a
truck bed full of fishing sticks
of various sizes and a couple
of tackle boxes of dreams to
come.
We set out. lust--;arfling.
enough fish for dinner that
night. I planned a 'Pat Mc-
Griff grouper trip in 45 feet of
water with .squid but lots, of
live bait on the side and full
tank of gas (ab ays). I had
caught a few nice fish in the
area the week before. The
grouper gig didn't pan out. Af-
ter the third no hit wonder
hole, Charles switched-to a
grunt outfit and proceeded to
entice the rest of us to put to--
gether a couple of five buckets
of those 'delightfully delicious
prides-of-Steinhatchee and
beyond.
Dinner was taken care of
and it was fun doing it. On
light tackle, a big grunt puts
up a quality fight. After we
met the' grunt dinner quota, I
said "I know this sounds crazy


but... I've seen Bonita and
Spanish mackerel crashing the
bait pods on the ride home
over the past couple of weeks.
How about doing some light
tackle?"
They were all for it. They.
asked what to rig up with. I
told them small flashy jigs or
silver spoons with a one foot
section of No. 1 wire as a
leader against the mackerel
teeth. They rigged enroute and

hour bouncing from one pod

the Bonita- came in. You can
tell the difference. Fish were
not just zipping in and out of
the minnows occasionally tak-
ing flight. The water frothed
like beating egg whites for a'
long time. Fish bounced off
one another in chase. A blind
man could find the schools by*
hearing the splashing fish and
the screeching of gulls. Any-
thing tossed into the froth of
fish didn't make it out.
We were using 10 pound
test, except for Curtis the four
pound test pilot. When we'd
get a Bonita on, which was
seconds after the lure hit the
water, the drag would scream.

Tips on buying boating attire


Want to enjoy boating all year
round No problem if you are
equipped with the proper altire,
say the boating experts at
Marisafe.com, an online boating
resource. Marisale suggests
choosing layering garments that
are easy to adjust as conditions
change.
According to boaterslife.com,
another online boating resource,
you should never wear cotton,
particularly as the base layer,
which is for wicking away mois-
ture. Other parts of boating attire
include the mid layer, the insulat-
ing layer and the outer weather-
proof layer. Here are some of
their tips on choosing the proper
boating attire, based on types of
sailing.
SAFETY AND WARMTH
Buoyancy aids and life jack-
ets: Today, buoyancy aids and life
jackets are covered by strict stan-
dards. They must have specified


amounts of buoyancy, fit well, be
tough and mos de.finitply stay on
when you :fal in.the water. Most
dinghy sailors want as much free-
dom of movement and as little
bulk as possible, using one of two
types: a conventional zipped vest
or a pull-over-the-head type. The
zipped vest is easier to put on but
is slightly longer than the pull-
over, which seems to be the most
popular. Freedom of movement is
improved by using as many
pieces of closed cell foam as
possible so that the jacket bends
around the contours of the body.
.Drysuits: Available in front-
and back-zip versions. The back-
zip version is less bulky across
the middle, and it is lighter and
easier to move around in. The
main argument against them is
that help is sometimes needed to
do the zip correctly. Zipping up
the last half inch on either a front
or back zip suit is essential. A


drysuit is literally sealed at every
opening and.risk of condensation
could not be greater.
Wetsuits: Available in a vari-
ety of weights and styles. Look
for suits using different thickness-
es of neoprene in different areas,
depending on whether warmth or
flexibility is the main criteria. Also
look for blind stitching that is wa-
terproof, and flat seaming that
will not press against the body.
The big difference between a


wetsuit and drysuit is that with a
drysuit the warmth; and protec-
tion comes by staying totally dry,
whether in the water or out. A
wetsuit works on the principle.
that even though wet, body heat
will not escape through neo-
prene. Any water in the suit will
warm /up. Overall, a wetsuit on its'
own may be lighter 'and more
flexible, if you don't mind the ini-
tial cold feeling when falling in the
water.

Knowing when an aging relative needs help


For many people, independence is something they fall in love with the
very first time they experience it. Whether it's a teenager left home
alone for the first time or a college student finally leaving the nest, that
first taste of independence can be a wonderful thing, something most
people want to maintain the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, as people
grow older, independence can often be a detriment to their well being,
leaving their loved ones in a difficult position with respect to their care.
Deciding to put a parent or an elderly relative in a. care facility is
never an easy decision, as chances'are that person will want to remain
independent. You may also feel guilty about the decision wondering if
thL facility can provide the best care.
To help you make the correct call, here are some -things to consider,.
courtesy of AARP, that should help you rest easier with whatever you
decide:
Physical health. This is typically one of the more decisive factors in
whether or not a nursing home is the right move for your loved one.
Chronic disease, such as diabetes or arthritis, can greatly limit an
elderly person's independence, sometimes making it impossible for
them to live on their own. If you cannot care for them adequately
enough, a nursing home or another facility might be your only option.
In addition, heart disease, stroke or cancer can also rob loved ones of
their independence, meaning a nursing home might be the best option
for sufferers of these diseases as well.
Mental health. Typically, Alzheimer's is a chief concern for
relatives of the elderly. If your loved one appears disoriented most of
the time or has regular feelings of confusion, professional help might be
the best decision. Also, bouts with depression or anxiety can be difficult
to deal with if you're not trained to do so. While these conditions do not
mandate you put your loved one in a home, it may be necessary if
someone cannot be available round-the-clock to provide care.
Medication use. Pay close attention to, your loved one's medication
routine. If he's forgetting to,take his medication or taking too much, or

elderly people can get up and go like they used to, exhibiting difficulty
with some of the more routine tasks a day presents could be a sign that
help is necessary. Struggles with bathing, dressing or even using the
toilet indicate a dwindling ability to live independently. Similarly, such
struggles might leave you worried about your loved one's ability to
cook and clean for themselves, which could lead to tragedy. Similar to
other areas of concern, this should be looked at subjectively. If your
loved one still has his mental health but might be struggling with some
of the aforementioned tasks, perhaps having him move in with a
younger relative or hiring someone to help him can help you avoid the
nursing-home scenario. If no such support system is realistic, a home
could be your best move.
Home/community safety. Unfortunately, the elderly are often
targets of crime, and are therefore vulnerable. If your loved one's
neighborhood is not safe, moving them, be it to a home or a new place,
is a good idea. Also, if your loved one's home requires upkeep that they
are not able to physically do anymore, it could indicate they're not safe
living alone.
Support systems. No one should live in isolation, .especially the
elderly. If your loved one has a strong support system of family and
friends that he regularly interacts with, that could be a sign that he's
capable of continuing to live independently. While those friends and
family should contact your loved one regularly and stop in to help out
whenever possible, if your loved one is maintaining an active social life
he could be all right staying where he is.
Finances. Finances often play a significant role in what to do with
an elderly loved one. If your loved one is capable of living on what he
has and isn't exhibiting any significant problems such as forgetting to
- pay bills or regularly paying them late, finance concerns should provide
no reason to move him. However, if your loved one cannot live on his
current income or might have problems doing so down the road,
consider your options. One thing to note is that nursing home prices are
high, so consulting a financial advisor to help you is a good road to
take.
While these areas are a good place to start, they should not dictate
what-you do nor should you ignore other possible areas of concern. To
learn more about dealing with the elderly, visit the AARP Web site at
