Billups: A 21st Century Marine


U.S. viarine Adam Billups


Vanessa Fultz
Democrat Reporter
By 22 years of age he's en-
dured the crucible, the biggest
challenge of Marine boot camp,
and has been ti Iraq twice to
fight insurgents. Yet, for a United
States Marine, it's all in a days
work.
"My job is 0311 infantry to


locate, close with and destroy the
enemy by fire or maneuver or by
fire and close combat. That's my
job; that's what I do," said U.S.
Marine Adam Billups.
Adam, of Live Oak, has been
through three deployments in
four years, once to Haiti and
twice to Iraq. After graduating
from Suwannee High School in
May of 2003 he headed to Parris
Island, S.C., for boot camp in

,DistrAct 4 School .Board candidates speak out


Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor


It's just days now until the Nov. 7
General Election where citizens will
vote for the candidates of their
District 4 School choice. In Suwannee County one lo-
Board candidate cal race for District 4 School Board
James Cooper will'be decided. Here's what the can-
didates, James Cooper and Jane
Lowe, had to say this week about their qualifica-
tions.
lYou have made the cut and now are facing
another opponent for the final decision by
the voters of who will serve in this District 4
School Board seat. Give us the plan you used for


your career in education that led
you to this spot in time, explaining
what it did to make you qualified
for this office.
Cooper I knew I wanted to get a
college education and find a job that
I was very interested in. My high
school science teacher inspired me
and I moved into the area of chem-
istry. My plans were to make a dis-
covery, a cure for cancer, something

of the military, I was sort of resting and was encour-

June of the same, year.'
The first time Adam was sent
to Iraq in 2005 he was there for
seven months. There, he stayed at
Fallujah during the attack on the
Abu Ghraib prison.
"That was one of our major, I
guess you could say, accomplish-
ments. We repelled the attack on
the prison," Adam said.
During his first trip he also
helped train the Iraqi National
Guard at Camp India and provid-
ed security at an election site, a
task that enabled Iraqis to vote.
"People were walking to vote
from all over," he remembers
about that day.
During his second deployment
to Iraq in 2006 he was in Ramadi
at the government center. His job
was to clear the city of Insurgents
and protect the government and
infrastructure. And with no help
from Iraqi police..
"To protect the mayor of Ra-
madi we had a security detail that
went with him. He stayed alive
so I guess we were successful in
that," he said.
During his trips to Iraq Adam
faced many challenges. One chal-
lenge was the inability to detect
the enemy from citizens.
"Mostly when we got shot at or
we'd see a weapon, we'd shoot
back," he said about his limited
ability to detect the enemy. "It's ,

How to relieve canker sore pain
Canker sores, although small, may cause significant pain. They occur
on the inside of your mouth, specifically on the inside of the lip,
cheek, on the tongue, or roof of the mouth. The sore is usually red and
may also have a white coating. They appear round and typically form
one at a time, but may also form as several sores in one cluster.
Canker sores many happen in anyone, however they may occur more
commonly in women and people in their teens and twenties. Possible
triggers for the formation of a canker sore include stress, food
allergies, poor nutritional habits, and menstrual periods.
Although they usually go away on their own, it is sometimes helpful
to have over-the-counter products such as ibuprofen (Advil) or
acetaminophen (Tylenol) to help alleviate the pain. Topical
medications that are applied directly to the sore may help to reduce
pain and irritation caused by eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth.
Examples of topical products include Anbesol, Oragel, and Orabase.
Another way to possibly reduce the pain caused by a canker sore is by
mixing equal amounts of Milk of Magnesia and Benadryl Allergy
liquid. Swish a teaspoonful of this mixture in your mouth for one
minute and then spit out. Repeat every four to six hours. 309692-F

not like the insurgents wear a
uniform or anything."
Another challenge was the
nature of warfare in the city.
"This was not jungle war-
fare. When you get out there
in major cities with five or
six-story buildings, insurgents
'can get in a building and
shoot from anywhere and
then leave without tracking
them," he said.
Though Adam and his bat-
talion helped make the city
safer, the price was costly.
"We had a major attack
every week this last deploy-
ment at the Ramadi Center,"
he said reflecting on some
close calls he and his battal-
ion faced.
During his last trip 17 in
his battalion were killed, in-
cluding one fellow Marine he
knew personally. During the


same time 200 out of 800 in
his battalion were wounded.
Cpl. James, who Adam de-
scribed as his buddy, was
killed in action during a
sniper attack.
"We stood post together
everyday for the first three
months we were there," he
said about James. "They're
family, so when you lose one
you feel it."
Watching the news was dif-
ficult for Adam's family.
"On the news you might
not get the whole report. They
might say, 'Three service men
were killed in Iraq, two were
Marines and one Navy,' but
not give the exact location or
names. So you sit and wait,"
said his father Randy Billups.
"However, the government
would let the family know of
a death within 24 hours," said.
Adam.
Another challenge about


his time in Iraq was being
away from home and the ab-
sence of the luxuries of Amer-
ica.
To ease that difficulty
Adam received lots of support
from home, especially from
his church family at West-
wood Baptist in Live Oak. As
part of the church's outreach
ministry, Adam received let-
ters and boxes of food and
other items so numerous he
was able to share them with
his fellow Marines.
"It \\as nice to receive let-
ters from overseas and to hear
about what was going on at
home," said Adam about the
letters he received. "It .was
just hope that maybe I'd be
back home soon."
Adam returned home from
his mission in September. He
is headed back to his home


IL
m


base, Camp Lejeune, in North
Carolina on Nov. 7. There he
will continue to train in mock
battles until June of 2007
when he will return home per-
manently.
When Adam gets back
home he will pursue his aspi-
rations to train in some form
of criminal justice.
Though Adam is returning
to civilian life, he says being
in the Marines has helped him
develop confidence and given
him the ability to attend col-
lege. He is proud to be called
U.S. Marine.
"I've always heard that
Marines are the best," he said
about choosing this branch of
the military. "Those who
raised the flag at Iwo Jima,
those were Marines. When
you think of Marines you
think of true fighters."

An evening of impressions by

Hollie Vest at LCCC Nov. 9
Get ready for an "evening of impressions" when Hollie Vest
performs as Tina Turner and Christopher John performs his side
splitting impersonations on Thursday, November 9, at 7:30 p.m.,,
at the Levy Performing Arts Center.
Hollie Vest is the ultimate Tina Turnerptribute artist. She per-
forms her live tribute authentically and respectfully with bound-
less high energy recreating the illusion, both physically and vo-
cally, of the Queen of Rock 'n Roll.
Over the years, Vest has received awards and recognition for
her talents and years of entertaining. She received the 2005 In-
ternational Celebrity Images Award for Pop 'n Rock For Reel,
and the Best Corporate Event Performance in 2003. She is
known as the best in the. business and celebrates over 20 years
of this thrilling tribute to Tina Turner.
Vest performs songs from the early Tina Turner years, such as,
"Proud Mary," "Honky Tonk Woman," the 80s "What's Love
Got To do With It," "Private Dancer," and the 90s "Simply The
Best," "I Don't Wanna Fight," and many more.
Funnyman Christopher John, was born in Queens, New York.
His formative years were spent with his family on Long Island.
He relocated to Florida in his early twenties. The many voices
coming from a young Christopher's bedroom were thought by
his family to be those of his friends. John was actually enter-
taining himself while honing his skills of vocal impressions,
mimicking the sounds coming from his small television. He
soon realized that. others enjoyed his ability to impersonate
celebrity voices and John was hooked.
Christopher John's impressions are numbered at 70 plus! He
can quickly change from the mild niannered JinumN Stewart to a
rousing, musical John Travolta. One minute he's the cranks
'Archie Bunker and next he is a zany Jerry Lewis.
John has spent much of his time performing across the United
States, making stops in places from Missouri to Las Vegas. He
has entertained in varied venues and corporate events, including
world famous hotels and casinos including the Bellagio, MGM
Grand, and Mirage, to name a few.
With a cast of characters so diverse, Christopher John's audi-
ences are always waiting with anticipation for his next impres-
sion. John jam packs his show with an astounding array of
beloved characters, leaving his audiences standing on their feet.
He basks in the spotlight, but loves getting up close and person-
al, making his fans an integral part of his show.
Tickets for the performance are $14 general admission, $13
seniors and $12 LCCC staff and students.

A recently passed federal law is
triggering renewed interest in. Sec-
tion 529 Education Plans.
The tax benefits offered by 529
plans were set to expire in 2010,
but the recently passed Pension Act
of 2006 changed that. President
Bush signed the bill into law this
August, which eliminated a provi-
sion that would have forced 529
account owners to pay taxes on in-
come earned after 2010.
College 529 plans are operated
by state or educational institutions
and help families set aside funds
for future college costs. All of the
account's earnings are-exempt from
federal tax if they are used for
qualifying educational expenses.
Mike Sullivan, -director of educa-
tion for Take Charge Amnerica. a
national non-profit credit counsel-
ing agency, says if you haven't pre-
viously considered a 529 plan to
pay for college, now is the time.
"It's never too early to start.sav-
ing for college. A college educa-
tion is one of the most important
investments we can make.," he said.
'"No\\ that the Pension Act has
passed, families can rest assured
that their earnings on college sav-
ings [in 529 plans] will be exempt
from federal taxes for the duration
of the plan."
There are t,. o thpes of 529 plans:
one allows the account holder to
prepay tuition at a particular quali-
fled educational instinttion at to-
day's rates. The other (and more,
popular) type allows families to
save earnings in a tax-deferred ac-
count to be used to pay for educa-
tional costs at future tuition rates.
The former may save money, but
the latter sa\ ings program provides
more flexibility to the student by
allo\' ing the full value of the ac-
count to be used at any accredited
college or university in the country,
as well as some schools abroad.
A recent poll by Fidelity Invest-.
ments found that less than 25 per-
cent of American parents use 529
plans and that 52 percent are using
..bank savings accounts for college
'expenses. Sullit an says families
who are using basic savings ac-
counts should consider the switch.
"College 529 plans will give you
substantial gains as opposed toa .
basic savings account that garners
little interest in comparison," said
Sullivan. "In addition, the earnings
on 529 plans are not taxed whereas
the interest on the sa' ings account
are.subject to tax.., It's all about
making your money work for you -
no matter how much or how little
3 ou may have."
For those considering 529 plans,


Sullivan describes five facts you

ought to know:
You Don't Need a Crystal Ball -
There are no age limits or time re-
quirements with 529 plans, so you
or your child are not bound by re-
strictions as to when you need to
start college or finish. In addition,
the 529 plans can be rolled over to
another family member if one de-
cides not to attend college. That
includes the original beneficiary's
spouse, children, sisters, brothers,
nephews, nieces, first cousins, and
any spouses of those persons.
Exclusive Access If a parent or
grandparent (or anyone else for that
* matter) opens an, account for a ben-
'eficiary under age 18,' the child will
not gain control of the account
once they reach legal age. Further,
the account owner will have sole
control of the money unless the ac-
count is legally transferred to the
beneficiary, regardless of the age of
that beneficiary. This way, parents
know their children will only use
the. plan to pay for college expens-
es.
You Don't Need to be Rich, But
You can be- There are no income
limitations that could make you in-
eligible to open a 529 plan. Plus,
you can contribute as little as $25 .
to $50 a month depending upon the
,plan.
You Don't Need Residency -
Most states don't require residency
to open a 529 plan. There. are more
.than 75 state plans available and.
you can roll the money into ariother
state 529 plan once every 12
months without a penalty. Since
plans vary state-by-state, it's best
to shop around for the best deal.
But remember that your state may
offer tax benefits if you keep your
money in state. For more informa-
tion or to compare state plans, visit
www.savingforcollege.com.
Scholarship Bonus Kids with
scholarships may find some extra
.cash in their pockets If children
with 529 plans get a scholarship to
attend college, any unused-money
can be cashed out-% without paying a
penalty. you just pa\ the tax on
the earnings. The remainder of the
529 plan can also be rolled over to
another relative.

GUEST EDITORIAL

Small business calls for

passage of Amendment 3
Most critical of six
amendments on Nov. 7 ballot
Editor's note: Florida will vote on six amendments on Nov. 7. The
most critical to small business is Amendment 3, which x would require a
60 percent approval threshold by voters for future constitutional amend-
ments to pass.
Florida is known for many good things the nation's best year-round
climate, bumper citrus crops and a diverse economy with an industrious
workforce. It shouldn't be known for having a tbppant regard for
amending its constitution, but that is today's reality. ,
On Nov. 7, Florida will consider six constitutional amendments. The
most important one to small business is Amendment 3, which would re-
quire a threshold of 60 percent by voters for future constitutional'
amendments to pass, if approved. Currently only a 50 percent.threshold
is necessary.
Amendment 3 began as a legislative joint resolution that required and
received a 60 percent \ ote by the Florida House of Representati\ es and
Senate to be eligible on next month's ballot. The measure overw\helm-
ingly passed the Senate 37 3 and the House 86 30 in the 2006 ses-
sion. It should have the full support of Floridians, as well.
Small-business owners are concerned by the ease our state constitu-
tion is being amended.; Over the last 38 years, Florida has altered its
constitution a stunning 103 times. Over the last 217 years, the U.S.
Constitution has been amended only 27 times. In Florida, we've
amended our founding charter for such things as protecting pregnant
pigs.
Recognizing an inclination by some to promote beliefs not in the .
common interest, our nation's founders thought it necessary to shun ex-
pediency and allow for extended debate on high-minded issues. They
prudentiyadopted,a,process that made altering the U.S. Constitution a
serious exercise part of our checks and balances As a result, we can
proudly point to the Bill of Rights. women's suffrage and civil rights
that eventually became part of our national code.
Unfortunately, for many years Florida has been heading in the other
direction. Our state, however, has a significant opportunity to reverse
course and restore confidence in our process of government. By voting
for Amendment 3. Floridians w ill sa\ "'no" to out-of-state, deep-pocket-'
ed groups that are pushing specific agendas. Few, if any, out-of-state
residents have sincere interest in the effects on our deliberative process-
es and they shouldn't be able to marginalize our constitution.
Some in-state groups that claim to ha\ e our best interests in mind are
promoting constitutional changes, as well, and often with out-of-state
money. One campaign funding report recently released showed 97 per-"
cent of the $1 million-plus raised for '"Florida-based" Trust the Voters,
has come from narrow special interests outside Florida. Is it right for
well-heeled groups from Chicago and Washington, D.C., to pour mil-
lions into our state for their own purposes' Absolutely not.
Voting for Amendment 3 also restores confidence in Florida's legisla-
tive branch and its ability to debate and deliberate over issues that mat- '
ter to the general welfare of Flondians. Of significance, the joint resolu-.
tions that passed both chambers last session did so in strong bipartisan
fashion. Those legislators by and large recognize the process has
gotten out of hand and most want to ensure they're responsible for
charting our course. By passing Amendment 3, we can lessen the influ-,
ence of narrow special interests, let Floridians set the agenda and attend.
to Florida matters. Our role as voters is to hold our legislators account-
able for their votes. Under the current amendment process, not only are
we cheapening our constitution but we're letting many legislators from
both parties off the hook.
To miss the opportunity on Nov. 7 would put us closer to the
precipice of silliness. Already, there is a backlog of mostly nonsense -
nearly 50 amendments have been filed for the 2008 ballot. It is time to
restore confidence in deliberation and reject a system that promotes
passing the Amendment Du Jour.
Small business, which will be out in force on Nov. 7 to vote for
Amendment 3, encourages. every voter to become educated on this key
amendment. One group, Protect Our Constitution (http://www.protec-
tourconstitution:org/mx/hm.asp?id=home ), effectively argues why it's
important to enact "commonsense standards for the petition-gathering
process and [seek] broader support for the proposed amendments ap-
pearing on the ballot." I encourage Floridians to visit their resourceful
Web site. Hopefully, you will be convinced to join thousands of entre-
preneurs and their employees by voting "yes" to preserve the integrity
of our state constitution.

though an initiative by a local group put the
question of county wide election of all com-
missioners (while all five still must reside in
their specific districts) on the ballot, this issue
could mean a long court case if a recent feder-
al judge's ruling against a Central Florida
county on a similar issue is upheld. In that
case, the judge ruled last week that Osceola
County has five weeks to come up with a new
election plan aimed at giving Hispanic voters
a fair shake in electing county commissioners,
according to news reports. In his ruling, US
District Judge Gregory A. Presnell said the
county's countywide voting system for the
county commission dilutes the ability of His-
panics in that county to be fairly represented.

Election


Continued From Page 1A

got excited about the learning
and the rest is history. I went
back, got a master's degree
-and got a job as a teacher. I
loved it and I continued to
improve, by taking advanced
courses. I just fell in love
with teaching but it wasn't
planned. After teaching 20
years, I had an opportunity to
advance into the administra-
tive position of Title 1 Coor-
dinator, then I became Title 1
and Elementary Director,
then Secondary Director. I
had to learn to write projects
and adhere to guidelines. I re-
tired as director of secondary
education and Title 1. I ob-
tained my educational admin-
istrative leadership (EdS) de-
gree during the time I was the
coordinator. All of these
things show my qualifications
for this position.
Lowe Early in my career,
I was recognized as a
spokesperson because I was
not afraid to speak out. I've
been defending teachers since
my early years as a teacher.
About 12 years ago I really
began to speak for teachers. I
began attending School
Board meetings and often
School Board members
would ask me my opinion be-
cause they knew I was a reli-
able voice for the teachers.
About 10 years ago I was
asked to become president of
the teacher's union in Hamil-
ton County. We made many,
changes; we received an
overall raise of about 25 per-
cent during my six years as
union president. Teachers,
bus drivers and secretaries
know I'm a 'straight shooter.'
I tell them what's ,going to
happen. I don't sugar-coat
anything. They knew basical-
ly that what came out of my
mouth they could depend on.
I was appointed to North
Florida Community College's
Board of Trustees. I learned a
lot administratively and was
considered the faculty's board
member, although I was the
representative from Hamilton
County. I'm a very good
school teacher. I help set the
standard at Hamilton County
High School. I'm an old fash-
ion school teacher; I teach
every day; and I control my
classroom. I think all of those
, things have enabled me to be
truly qualified.


2Being a School Board
member is a job, just
like any other, only this po-
sition serves our future
adult citizens now. Pick two
qualities you have that
would make you the best
candidate and'explain how
you will use tlem in this of-
fice.
Cooper One of my quali-
ties is the ability to work with
people because I had to work
with all types of personalities
over the years. That's one of
my strong points, communi-
cation with the public, the
community and fellow board
members. I guess you can
call that power of persuasion.
Another quality is my teach-
ing experience.
310152-F Lowe The first quality is


I'm very up-to-date on what's
happening across the state of
Florida and the nation. Right
now one of the big issues is
the Special Teachers Are Re-
warded (STAR) rewards pro-
grams. Others are high school
reform, middle school re-
form, Reading First, ESE in-
clusion all of these are on-
going programs. I understand
these things as I'm up-to-date
on them. I will not have to
lose time getting on my feet;,
I already understand those
important programs. The sec-
ond is I'm a good listener.
Often people know things
can't be changed, they just
need someone to listen to
them. I am genuinely con-
cerned, and I like people. I
like to listen to people. Ihaye
enough strength to talk about
problems in a public forum
when it warrants discussion.,

3 It's been said the cur-
rent School Board
works well together. What
have the voters told you
they think about this?
Cooper I think they are
concerned about having
somebody who knows 'the
system, the people and the .
needs of the children. I know
the people, the system and
the needs of the students and
I'm going to do all that I can
within my power to make re-
sources available to those-
youngsters so they can pre-
pare themselves for a global
society.
Lowe You hear every-
thing. Some people think all
the problems and issues.are
being handled. But, the peo-
ple who don't feel that way
are people who are in the
trenches in the school system.
A lot of people in education
don't feel that way, but a lot
of the general public feels
things are going just fine. So,
I guess it just depends on
who you talk to.

Because School Board
members must visit
the schools regularly and
attend many meetings as
part of their jobs as School
Board members, how will
you meet these obligations?,
Cooper I retired in De-
cember of 2002, accessible,
and I'm already involved in
the school advisory council at
the primary school, I work
with the Police Athletic
League (PAL) that involves
children. Time is not an issue
as I'm retired, and I can be a
full-time board member.
Lowe Most of the meet-
ings are late in the afternoon
or at night. I will be able to
attend all of those meetings.
I've had teachers tell me they
really don't want to have
school board members in
their class rooms all the time.
I've had people tell me they
do like to have School Board
members attend special
events, and I will be able to
do that. I do have another
job, as do most other School
Board members. It is not un-
usual for a county to elect
someone to a School Board
who teaches in another coun-
ty. In fact, Suwannee County
has a teacher who teaches


here but lives in and is an.
elected School Board member
in Columbia County who was
re-elected in September. I will
be honorable to the School
Board position.

5What is the main issue
citizens have impressed
upon you they want changed
or accomplished on the
School Board and how
would you accomplish this if
elected?
Cooper I think for the
most part citizens are real
proud of our system; they re-
alize there's room for im-
provement, and they have
high expectations from those
who are responsible for seeing
these improvements are made.
I think they are looking for
someone who. can build upon
what we already have. I be-
lieve with my background
with School Board policy.
budgets and things of that na-
ture, I am the best candidate
for the district.
Lowe The one thing I'm
hearing is the people would
like to have some smaller
schools built out in the com-
munity, especially for elemen*-
tary students. The community
schools were a wonderful
thing in the past and children
in these small schools certain-
ly get more attention. Teach-
ers were right there among the
people. Community schools
would help with the traffic. A
small school could be the
heart of the community.
Everybody benefits, and I
don't believe anyone would
lose in that situation. Most lo-
cal citizens believe we should
consider Suwannee County ,
employees before seeking new
employees from outside our
community. They would like
to see our school employees
feel more appreciated and not
be overlooked.

6 Any last comments on
Your suitability for this
elected position?
Cooper I know the sys-
tem; I know the people; I
know the needs; I know the
needs of the children. I know
the needs of all the School
Board employees. I'm highly
qualified, dedicated and expe-
rienced. I'm willing and ready
to go to work.
Lowe I believe beyond a
shadow of a doubt that I am
the best qualified. I have a
proven record of speaking for
all school employees, and my
professional passion is teach-
ing children. Education has
totally changed in the last 25
years. Anyone who has not
been involved in the class-
room in the last few years re-
ally does not understand what
is happening to children and
teachers in America today. My
former students and the teach-
ers and administrators I work
with today have continued to
tell me how much they hope I
will get this job because of
my professional background.
They know I would be an as-
set to the Suwannee County
School Board.

rity problems with some electronic vot-
ing machines, Williams says the local
system is secure.
"I wouldn't put a machine out there
that I know is going to mess up,"
Williams said. "My integrity is at stake."
Suwannee County uses optical scan
voting machines, which are immune to
the electronic glitches reported in some .
computerized systems. By law, each
precinct must also have one touch-screen
voting device for use by the handicapped
or anyone else who so wishes.
The touch screen device, manufac-
tured by Electronic Systems and Soft-
ware, does not provide voters with re-
ceipts for their ballots a "paper trail" -
but does provide a paper "audit trail,"
which records each vote as it is cast.
Should the device fail, Williams can re-


view the audit to determine how many
votes were cast for any given candidate
or ballot measure.
The other potential concern with
touch-screen devices involves computer
hacking. Since the machines are not con-
nected to the internet, and are not linked
to one another, 9 hacker cannot attack the
system long-distance. "Each system is
independent of the others," Williams
said. The only way to maliciously invade
the devices for the purposes of altering
vote totals, for example is to physically
replace a memory card, which contains a
record of all activity on that machine.
Williams said that isn't a serious threat
because the memory cards are sealed in-
side the machines and an ever-present at-
tendant would observe anyone attempt-
ing to remove one of them. In such a
case the attendant would check the seal
to make sure it had not been altered or


replaced.
Memory cards have been switched in
controlled tests, but Williams said those
tests did not reproduce real-world condi-
tions. "They've only been able to do that
if someone's given them access to that
memory card," she said. "We're not go-
ing to give anybody access to our memo-
ry cards."
The machines have been tested and
are ready to go, Williams said. A logic
and accuracy test was conducted Oct. 20.
"Everything went fine," Williams said.
In addition, Williams and her staff do
their own additional testing beyond what
is required by state law.
Early voting continues through Nov.
4. The polls will be open on election day,
Nov. 7, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

said City Administrator
Robert Farley. Impounded
dogs are being housed tem-
porarily at the Suwannee
County Animal Control facili-

new city pound is complete.
Plans had been in the works
for two years to relocate the
pound, Farley said. Located
on the grounds of the \\ aste
water treatment plant, the
main issue with the old pound"
was public safety, he said.
"We have chemicals, stored
out there," he said. "It was in
a location that was not desir-
able for the public to be."

plant's capacity to produce
value added products and al-
lows us to support the
tremendous growth.of Publix
Super Markets, one of our
largest private label retail
customers," said John
Bekkers, Gold Kist President
and CEO.
Part of the plant's expan-
sion includes the addition of
new air chilling technology
that cools the chickens using
fresh, filtered cold air rather
than water immersion. Using
this technology, Gold Kist
will process chickens that are
antibiotic-free and raised on
an all-vegetable diet. This
new product was developed
to help supply the double-
digit sales growth of natural
foods in retail supermarkets.
Gold Kist is the first major
chicken processor in the
United States to offer this an-'
tibiotic free, air chilled pre-
mium product line that will
be marketed first by Publix

ketTM label.


ty. Since Sept. 11, 2001, water
treatment plants have been
seen as potential targets for
terrorists. Entry into the plant
site requires security clearance
and makes public visits to the
pound impracticable, Parley
said.
The new pound, which the
city hopes to have completed
within 30-60 days, will be lo-
cated adjacent to the water
treatment plant but within its
own fenced enclosure.
The 2005-06 city budget al-
located $10,000 for the new
pound, and funded partial
construction of the facility.
The city found another
$10,000 to complete the pro-,
jeci in this year's budget.
"The city's been actively pur-
suing someone to assist in-
this," Farley said. "Someone
to donate time and effort to
try and save a little money."
The new pound \\ill be


about double the size of the
old one. There will be a public
bathroom, dog runs, and an
office for the city animal con-
trol officer. The contractor is
scheduled to begin erecting
the internal walls of the facili-
ty this week.
Utility rate hikes delayed
The city's planned increase
in utility rates will have to
wait. The first reading of an
ordinance to authorize the
hikes occurred at the Oct. 10
city council meeting How0e%-
er, it turns out that residents
must be notified inm ratingg of
an\ such increase before it
can go into effect. Live Oak
residents \\ill receive such no-
tice on their next utility bills.
Now the city g6es back to
square one. The first reading
ofan ordinance to raise rates,
will occur at a special meeting
Thursday at 5:30 p m. at City
Hall


Trees to be replaced soon
Citing complaints from
owners of downtown busi-
nesses, the City Council re-
cently voted to replace the
trees along the sidewalks there
with shrubs. The trees have
grown larger than expected
and are reportedly becoming a
nuisance, their lea\ es clog-
gingroof gutters as well as
the city's storm drainage sys-
tem. In addition, the roots are
causing the sidewalks to buck-
le in some places.
The Florida Department of
Transportation permit to re-
move the trees has been re-
ceixed. Mayor SounN Nobles
said Tuesday, and the'trees
will be renio\ ed "as soon as
possible The work will pro-
ceed at mght so as to hamper
traffic as little as possible.
Needle point holly bushes will
be planted in place of the'
trees.

the passing of Tommy. He was a dedicated employee of the
city, first as a firefighter for many years and then most recently
as our public works director," said a saddened Live Oak Mayor
Sonny Nobles.
Cundiff worked for the Live Oak Fire Department (LOFD)
for more than 22 years as a fire fighter until 1999, rising to the
position of assistant fire chief prior to his retirement. For many
years Cundiff also worked as a building contractor locally. He
returned to the city in 2003 as the city's first full-time code en-
forcement officer until he was promoted to public works su-
perintendent. Cundiff was a certified fire inspector and was a
graduate of the Florida State Fire College in Ocala. Cundiff
was one of the first fire inspectors for the city of Live Oak.
"Tommy will be hard to replace, he was super," said Live
Oak City Council President Bennie Thomas of Cundiff. "We
hired him as a code enforcement officer. He got along with
everybody, and this is just a shock to us," Thomas said. "Our
heart goes out to the family. It's a big loss to our community.
When you told Tommy to do something, he got it done,"
Thomas stated. "My phone never rang with a complaint on
Tommy. I depended on Tominy when I wanted to get some-
thing done."
Cundiff moved to Live Oak in 1960 with his family and
worked in the'family business, Cundiff Brothers Feed Store,
along with his family while he attended Suwannee High
School where he graduated in 1965.
Cundiff is survived by his wife, Sue Cundiff of Live Oak;
two daughters, Melissa Garrison of Live Oak and Tabetha
Sturdivant of Palatka; two brothers, Henry Cundiff and Roy
Cundiff, both of Live Oak; one sister, Mary Maxwell of Live
Oak; four grandchildren, Kristen.Sturdivant of Palatka, John T.
Garrison and Kalli Garrison, both of Live Oak and Zack Stur-
divant of Palatka.

in the end the Wildcats came
out on top. And as the new dis-
trict champions of the Florida
Christian Athletic Association,
the Wildcats couldn't be happi-


Much of the win was due to
the play of goalie Travis Sim-
mons, who made numerous ,
saves, sometimes appearing out
of nowhere. Said coach Alfer
Seguara, "We could not have
won without him." The only
goal in the game was from an
indirect kick made by Danny
Proctor assisted by Kolby Bis-


pham. The Wildcats played
with heart and in the end they
were victorious. The final score
was 1-0.
The Wildcats have one game
to win before advancing to the
Conference Championship
match this Friday. "Whether we
win or lose we played a great
season," said Alfer.

Scientists "cautiously optimistic"




about ivory-bill woodpeckers


ABUNDANT WOODPECKERS: Pileated Woodpeckers are more abundant
in Florida. Photo: Sdbmitted


Submitted
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) scientists said recently they are cautiously opti-
mistic about an Auburn University professor's recently dis-
covered evidence of ivory-billed woodpeckers in the Flori-
da Panhandle.
"There is not enough evidence to confirm the birds' pres-
ence yet," said FWC Executive Director Ken Haddad, "but
the indications are promising, and we will work closely
with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Auburn University
and the Northwest Florida Water Management District to
see if we can confirm the reports."
Auburn University ornithologist Dr. Geoff Hill, who re-
cently completed a year-long search for the endangered
woodpecker, unveiled his findings Monday, indicating
there are signs ivory-bills might exist on land owned by the
water management district. He produced audio recordings
that appear similar to historical recordings of ivory-billed .
woodpeckers. Ho\\ ever, he has not collected clear photo-
graphic or video evidence, which is the standard for scien-
tific confirmation.
"The water management district owns, manages and pro-
tects over 200,000 acres in Northwest Florida, the majority
of which are along its major river systems." said Douglas
E, Barr, executive director of the Northwest Florida Water
Management District. "If the existence of these endan-
gered/extinct birds is verified, then the acquisition, protec-
tion and management of these lands since the mid-1980s
reflect the District's intent and mission to preserve its water
resources and habitats."
FWC Chairman Rodney Barreto said he and the six oth-
er Comnumissioners are bracing for potentially good news in
coming months..
"This will be fantastic if we can confirm the \\oodpeck-
ers are there," Barreto said. "Many experts believe the
i\ ory-bill is extinct, but experts have searches under way
in.Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina
and Texas. Florida is the only state besides Arkansas to
come close to confirmation in roughly 40 years."
t A detailed FWC whitepaper about ivory-billed wood-
pecker sightings in Florida since 1859 is available at


http://myfwc.com/imperiledspecies/reports/FloridaRe-
portRecoveryPlanFinal_June06.pdf.
Additional information about ivory-bills is available at
http://www.fws.gov/ivorybill/.


WOODPECKERS SIGHTED: Ivory-billed woodpeckers disap-
peared from view in Florida in the late 1950s or early '60s.
Reported sightings since then consistently have turned out
to be similar, but more-abundant, pileated woodpeckers.
Unconfirmed indications ivory-bills still may exist in the
Florida Panhandle have raised new hope the species may
not be extinct. Photo:Submitted

Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Serices announced
recently that biological con-
trol program efforts under-
ay in more than 30 Florida
counties are proving success-
ful in controlling the destruc-
,tive pink hibiscus mealybug
(PHM). PHM was first dis-
covered in the country in
Broward County four years
ago.
"Florida was ready for the
discovery of PHM, recogniz-
ing that because of its pre% a-
lence in the Caribbean, it was
only a matter of time before
it arrived in the US," FDACS
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson said. "Florida is be-


sieged with invasive plant
pests and diseases because of
our climate and location-and
finding natural solutions to
these problems is a key con- .
ponent of the Depatmnent's
mission," Bronson added
Fortunately, PHM has'
some natural enemies-two, are
parasitic, gnat-sized wasp's
(Anagyrus kamali and Gy-
ranusoidea indica), that attack
PHM but cause np harm to
other insects, plants or ani-
mals. Another enemII that is
helping to control PH I num-
bers is a lady beetle, Crypto-,
laemus that is a predator of
PHM and already well estab-
lished in Florida.
PHM has spread to 34

ological control parasites are
being released in all. counties
with current infestations. In
the last four years, more than
two million have been re-
leased.
In addition to PHM para-
site rearing facilities in Cali-
fornia and Puerto Rico, the
parasites are now being ,
reared at the Department's
Division of Plant Industry in
Gainesville at a rate of
16,000 per week. Currently,
two thirds of these are being

atee county area,where some
of the state's newest infesta-
tions have been identified.
E\ en though the biological
control program is helping to
suppress the population of'
PHM, eradication is not fea-
sible, and pest management
is a more realistic approach.
After the biological control
parasites are released in an
area, in time, usually two or
three months, they will repro-
duce' and spread out miles
from the initial release site.
Biological control pro-
grams conducted in the
Caribbean have reported 60-"
80 percent reduction of PHM
within six months of parasite
releases at test sites, and 95-
,98 percent after one year. The
southeast Florida PRIM bio-
logical control program has
been ongoing since the initial
outbreak in June of 2002, and
results have been promising.
In Broward and Miami-Dade
counties, plant recovery is
excellent. Average decline in
the PHM adult female popu-
lation at study sites was 97.2

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: I'm afraid of going to the dentist. What can I
do?
A. If you're afraid of going to the dentist, you're
not alone. Some 40 million Americans cite fear
or anxiety as the reason they don't visit a
dentist regularly, according to the Dental
Phobia Treatment Center of New York.
Obviously, ignoring dental problems will only.
make them worse. Here are some points to
consider: Ask questions and develop a good
rapport with your dentist. The more
comfortable you are with your dentist, the less
stress will be involved with a visit. Schedule
appoint for the time of day you're most
comfortable. In other words, if you consider
yourself "a morning person," make the
appointment for then. Don't try to squeeze an
appointment in over lunch or in a brief
afternoon break. Trying to get in and out
quickly will raise your stress level.
Talk to your dentist about techniques he uses
to relax patients. Various levels of sedation are
available. Those could include use of nitrous
oxide, or "laughing gas," or use of intravenous
sedation administered by a trained
anesthesiologist. Dentists also offer
distractions like DVDs and music. Talk with a
dentist about ways to overcome your anxiety.

Bulletin


Continued From Page 1B

Suwannee vs. Raines
As usual, the Dogs got off to a slow start.
Raines drove 75 yards in six plays on its first
possession to take a 7-0 lead at 8:09. The key
play was a 45-yard pass from quarterback
Kevin Hutchings to Ray Dukes at the Suwan-
nee 20' The Vikings scored on a 12-yard pass
from Hutchings to senior receiver Jordan
Williams.
The Bulldogs answered with a 17-play drive
that ended with a three-yard Brandon Allen
touchdown run with just 25 seconds remaining.
Two key penalties aided the Dogs on the drive.
A pass interference call on third and eight from
the Raines 44 gave Suwannee a first down at
the Viking 24. (Gabe Galloway was knocked
down by a Raines defender before he had a .
chance to catch a Tajhuane Roundtree pass.)
And an offside call on fourth and two from the
Raines 21 gave the Dogs new life at the 16.
Raines still had a shot to win it in regulation.
From his own 37, Hutchings latereled to wide
receiver Sam Norris, who tried to throw deep.
Defensive lineman Octavious Granville tipped
the ball, though, and defensive back Johnny
Herring intercepted.
In overtime, starting from the Raines 10, the
Dogs scored easily, as Allen bulled his way into
the end zone on third and goal from the two.
Raines got off to a shaky start on its first
overtime possession. Cedric McCloud, in at
quarterback for an injured Hutchings, was al-
most picked off by Stephen Cherry. A second-
down run by McCloud put the Vikings at the
seven, then Jason Cherry broke up a McCloud
pass to Williams to bring up fourth and goal,


from the seven. Then ,
Dukes broke through the
line to pull the Vikings to
within one.
But that's as close as' .
they got. Collis Givens
didn't just block the extra .
point anempt. he smoth-
ered it. The ball barely got .
off the ground. The Dogs
went wild, but only for a
few brief moments. Now
they had to do it all over
again.
Suwannee vs. .
Bishop Kenny '. i" :.
The Crusaders went .. V
four-and-out after the 'A-
opening kick-off. The
Bulldogs took over at the
Kenny 49 after the punt.
Once again a penalty .
helped Suwannee. An en-
croachment call against the Crusaders on fourth
and three from the Kenny 25 gave the Dogs a
first down, at the 20. The drive stalled at the 14
and Suwannee set up for a 31-yard field goal
try. A delay of game call pushed the Dogs five /
yards back, but Head Coach Bobby Bennett had
confidence in his kicker. It was confidence
well-placed. Cullen Boggus nailed it from 36
yards out to give the Bulldogs a 3-0 lead at the
5:06 mark.
On the kick-off, Alfonso Allen .made a crush-
ing tackle of McCloud at the Kenny 19. Now
the Dogs had to worry about Mike Stukel, the
Kenny quarterback with more than 1,000 yards
rushing this season. On second and eight from


is ....I


the 21, Stukel connected with Andrew Durrett,
who streaked down the left sideline to the
Suwannee 49. Stukel then hit Ryan Basford at
the 28 for another first down. After that, Stukel
decided to do it himself. He ran to the Suwan-
nee 12, then dove into the end zone two plays
later for a 7-3 lead with 90 seconds remaining.
Suwannee still had a shot. Roundtree hit Ja-
son Cherry, who got out of bounds at the Ken-
ny 48 to stop the clock. Then Roundtree went
to Cherry again, this time at the 30, with 46
seconds left. But a holding call negated the gain
and pretty well ended Suwannee's night. On
second and 28 from the Suwannee 37, line-
backer Curt Ludwig picked off.a Roundtree
pass and returned it to the 10. Stukel took a


knee to end it.
Postgame
After the final gun, Bennett told his boys they
didn't have anything to be ashamed of. "Ya'll
played hard," he told them. "I'm not upset a bit
at the effort."
"They played with a lot of guts," Bennett said
later of the Bulldogs. "Stukel is going to get
some big runs. You can stop him nine times out
often, but the tenth time he can get you."
With the play-offs out of the picture, the
Dogs play Hamilton County Friday at Langford
Stadium just for pride. They've got plenty of it.

passing for 34 yards.
The leading tacklers for the Dogs were
Lee Laxton with 11, Stephen Cherry with
eight and Justin Starling with seven.
For the Bulldogs, the problem coming in
was Jackson running back Troy Pollard.
Hampered in recent weeks by a turf toe in-
jury, Pollard was back in form against the
Dogs, gaining up 152 yards on 24 carries.
The Sports Connection/WQHL players of
the game, as selected by WQHL radio, were
Yulee and linebacker Lee Laxton.
The Dogs, a second-half team all season,
broke with their usual pattern and started out
hot. The Bulldogs stormed downfield on
their first possession to take a quick 7-0 lead
as Jackson struggled to adjust to the Suwan-
nee option. The Dogs went 78 yards in 11


plays, mainly behind the running of Yulee,
who gained 56 of his 91 yards on the drive,
scoring on a 25-yard burst through the mid-
dle of the Jackson line. The Cullen Boggus
kick made it 7-0 at 5:19 of the first.
Jackson answered early in the second
quarter. Taking over at their own 12 follow-
ing a Casey Brewer punt (see Game Notes
for more on Brewer), the Tigers drove 88
yards on eight plays, tying the game on a
36-yard Allan McClain pass to Torie Hay-
wood.
Suwannee went four-and-out, and Jackson
soon threatened again. Starting at their own
20, the Tigers drove to the Suwannee 32,
where Collis Givens blocked a field goal at-
tempt at 3:43 of the second.
Givens had another great effort later in
the quarter, breaking up a McClain pass and
preventing a long gain. He got his fingertips


on the ball, but couldn't make the pick. Too
bad. It was clear sailing to the end zone.
When the Tigers took the field for the sec-
ond half they were a different team. Starting
at their own 48, it took them only four plays
and a minte-thirteen to take the lead. Pol-
lard broke three tackles to score on a 20-
yard run.
The Suwannee defense settled down and
held on Jackson's next possession. Then dis-
aster struck. A Roundtree pass was tipped
and intercepted by linebacker Brandon
Houston at the Suwannee 35, and two plays
later fullback Antonio Lenton scored from
30 yards out to make it 21-7 at 5:46 of the
third.
The Bulldogs had been down this path be-
fore. They knew a two-touchdown deficit
was something they could make up. They
hunkered down and went to work, moving to


the Jackson 20 in seven plays. But another
turnover -- this time a Roundtree fumble on
the exchange from center -- ended the drive
at 2:26 of the third. The Dogs never'threat-
ened again.
As noted earlier, the Dogs' play-off hopes:
remained alive even with the loss. So Ben-
nett told his boys to get over this one fast.
"We can't afford to cry over this one," he
told them after the game. "Get your emo-
tions sorted out, and get ready for Monday."'
If Bishop Kenny were to beat Baker Friday,
Suwannee would be in a three-way tie for
second in the district, and would have to re-
turn to Jacksonville Monday for a one-quar-
ter tie-breaker. As it turns out, that's just
what happened. See page 1B for the results.

Emergency orders issued against

Ohio firm, agent for allegedly

Tom Gallagher, Florida's
chief financial officer, an-
nounced today that the De-
partment of Financial Services
has uncovered another alleged
scam seeking to lure Floridi-
ans into buying potentially in-
appropriate financial products.
As a result, Gallagher is again
warning consumers to "Verify
Before You Buy."
Earlier this month, Gal-
lagher ordered Ohio-based In-
vestors Union, LLC and its


managing member, Peter J.
Bonnell III of Medina, Ohio,
to immediately stop sending
misleading postcards to Flori-
da seniors bearing the word
"NOTICE" and advising con-
sumers that they "may have
an annuity that has reached
the end of its surrender peri-
od." When recipients call a

An annuity is a contract in

surrender period during
which the holder would paN

AND THE GOSPEL MUST BE PUBLISHED AMONG ALL-NATIONS MARK 13:1C

-'21& Suwannee VaHey


SA,-


By Pam Campbell
If you can't see it, is it still there? Do we have to see
something to know it is there? Someone who is blind
still knows there are things around them trees, animals,
sky, people, everything we see. They cannot see them,
but they know they are there. They can feel them, sense
them, hear them, people tell them about them, they can
picture it in their minds. Think of the many places in the
world we read about or hear about on the news where
we have not been. We have not seen them, but we prob-
ably believe they are there. None of us have been to the
moon, yet we see it every night. We believe it is there.
We cannot see the wind, but we know it is there. We can
feel it blow our hair, we can see it blowing the trees.
Though we cannot see the wind, it is still there.
I wonder if you cannot see something, do you
still believe it is there? Believing God for an an-
swer to prayer is like that. You have to ask God
for what you need. Then you have to have faith to
believe God will answer your prayer. You cannot
see the answer or how in the world the answer
will come, but if you have faith, you know God
will answer. You have to believe without seeing
that God will answer, just as He promises in His
word. In the Bible, we read these words: "Do not
be anxious about anything, but in. everything, by .
prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present
your requests to God." Philippians 4:5-7. If we
know the Lord, we know we can pray and God
will answer.
It is the same with believing in God. Most of us
have not actually seen. God, yet we believe He ex-
ists. We feel His presence. We know He is with us
always, we talk'to Him, and He answers. "Whom
having not seen, yelove; in whom, though now
ye see Him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy
unspeakable and full of glory." 1Peter 1:8 We see
His love and His hand in all of creation. We know
He is real. We love Him. We believe His word.
We believe He answers prayer because He says
He does, and we have seen Him answer prayer
other times in our lives and in other peoples' lives.
Many times my family and I sit by a beautiful
waterfall where we have a permanent campsite in
the Smoky Mountains, a place we can come and
go as God allows. We all enjoy just watching the
water or reading book after book, times of prayer, '
times of drawing, writing, crafting, talking with .
others, cooking out. But most of all, we enjoy just i
relaxing.and listening to the sounds of the river
and waterfall. One night my daughter and I were
sitting as we have so many times, watching the
waterfall as the sun began to set, and it began to
get dark. We continued to sit there, watching not
only the waterfall but several little otters scampering in
the water below. I said to her, "I wish it would not get
dark because then we can't see the waterfall." My
daughter looked at me and said, "Yes mama, but you
can still hear it."
I have thought about that so often since then. She was
so right. We sat there for quite some time after darkness
had fallen and listened. We could not see that waterfall,
but we could hear it just as we had before night came.
The Lord spoke to me that night and continues to re-


Is it there?
mind me what He tell us in His word. "So then faith
cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."
Romans 10:17.
Just as sure as that waterfall was still there, even in
the dark, God will surely answer our prayers. You know,
when we went to bed that night, we could still hear the
waterfall, such a soothing, relaxing sound, and sure
enough the sun came up the next day. When we looked
out the window, there was the glorious waterfall for all
to see! When we have faith to believe God for an an-
swer to prayer, the answer will come, and we will know,
we will see, we will be able to share the good news that
God has answered prayer that others may be able to see.
God will always answer our prayers. We must have
faith and believe. Sometimes the answers might not be


the answers we are looking for or the answers we want
them to be, but God knows the best for each of our
lives, and He will answer. "And all things,. whatsoever
ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive."
Matthew:22 When you have something happening in
your life where you really need God's help, you need a
real answer from heaven, do you worry first and then
pray, or do you remember to pray and leave the worry at
the feet of Jesus? If you learn to build up your faith
when things in your life are going smoothly, by hearing

the word of God, then when things in your life get
bumpy, you will have the needed faith to trust the Lord
to take care of the situation and lean on Him, and forget
the worry. Worry will not help, but Jesus will! Jesus
speaks to us about worry in the Bible in Matthew 6:27-
28: "Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to
his life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how
the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin."
We do not need to worry, we must learn to have faith.
How is it that we get faith? Faith comes by hearing the
word of God.
Many times we may not be where we are hearing the
word of the Lord. Maybe we are sick and can't get to
church, or are in a place where the word of the Lord is
not being preached so we can hear it. In order to have
faith, we must hear the word of the Lord.
I have found I need to hear the word of the Lord
I: to build my faith daily, not just at church. Recent-
ly, instead of just reading the Bible to myself and
studying it, I have begun reading the word aloud,
just the Lord and I. The word says our faith comes
from hearing the word, so if you read it aloud, you
are really hearing it, literally! I find myself under-
standing more, and hearing more of what the Lord
is saying to me. Whether we read the word aloud
or silently, or have someone else read it to us, or
are hearing the word preached, the important thing
is to pay attention to what God is saying in His
word. He speaks to each of us through His word.
When we are praying for a specific need, we
may not know how in the world the answer will
come, it may look impossible to us, but remember,
r with God, nothing is impossible. We just need to
have that simple childlike faith and believe. We
can't see the answer, we can't see faith, but we
know if we hear the word of God, we receive the
faith we need. We know if the answer to our
prayer or prayers is there, we just can't see it, just
like we could not see the waterfall after dark. But,
that did not mean it was not there. We could bear
it, and that told us that yes, it was still there. We
hear the word of God, we have faith and though
we cannot see the answer, we know it is there. "So
then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the
word of God." Romans 10:16-18. We don't get to
sit by the waterfall as often as we would like, but
when we do, it is a joy, .and a privilege. Like most
'of you, when I am not in the mountains by the wa-
"" terfall, I must find somewhere else to pray, some-
where else to get alone with the Lord, to rest, to
relax.
We all need to do this, and we can. It can be as
simple as in our own back or front yard, or in a
room alone with the TV off, or one of my favorite
places is outside in a field looking up into the beautiful
star filled sky with a sliver of a moon shining. What an
awesome place to talk to the creator of the universe,
God our father.'
Take time each new day as you awaken to thank God
for another day, and find the time to read His word so
tyou will build up your faith. Remember, faith comes
from.hearing the word of God. Next time you pray, re-
member to have faith, and even though you don't see
the answer, always know the answer is there.

- Can you


see it?


By Pam Campbell
If you can't see it, is it still there? Do
we have to see something to know it is
there? A person who is blind still knows
there are things around them trees, ani-
mals, sky, people, everything we see. They
cannot see them, but they know they are
there. They can feel them, sense them,
hear them, people tell them, about them.
They can picture it in their minds.
Think of the all the places in the world
we read about, we have not seen them but
we believe they are there. None of us have
been to the moon, yet we see it every
night, we believe it is there. I wonder if
you can not see something, do you still
believe it is there?


Believing God for an answer to prayer
is like that. You have to ask God for what
you need and then you have to have faith
to believe God will answer your prayer.
You have to believe without seeing that
God will answer.
It is the same with believing in God.
Most of us have not seen God, yet we be-
lieve He is real. We love Him. We believe
His word. We believe He answers prayer
because He says He does.
Many times my family and I sit by a
beautiful waterfall .in the Smoky Moun-
tains. One night my daughter and I were
" sitting watching the waterfall and it began
to get dark. I said to her, "I wish it would.
not get dark because then we can't see the


waterfall." My daughter looked at me and
said, "Yes, mama, but you can still hear.
it." She was right, we could not see that
waterfall, but we could hear it just as we
had before it got dark. The Lord reminded
me whaHe tells us in His word "So then
faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by
the word of God." Romans 10:17 Just as
sure as that waterfall was still there even
in the dark, God'will surely answer our
prayers. God will always answer our
prayers. We must have faith and believe.
Sometimes God may answer our prayers
in a different way than we expect, but He
will always answer! God knows the best
for each of our lives. He tells us in the
Bible how to pray "And all things, what-


soever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye
shall receive.". Matthew:22. How is it that
we get faith? Faith comes by hearing the
, word of God.
The Bible says; our faith comes from'
hearing the word. If you can read it out
loud or have someone read it to you, then
you will really be hearing Hs word! He
talks to each of us through His word, even
kids!,
We can't see the answer, we can't see
faith, but we kno\\ that if we hear the
word of God,.we receive the faith we
need. : .
Nexttime you praN, have faith,f and
even though you don't see the answer, al-
ways know that the answer will be there.

Be Merciful, 0 Lord

For we

have sinned
The Bible tells us we
all ha v e'sined and have
come, short of the glory
of God.
And, although \% e .:
should try to refrain from
sinning, it is somewhat : .,
consoling to kno\" that
none of us are perfect. If
we are repentant for our '
sins andhave asked God
for His forgiveness, we




Hea enl Fater has gi -, .
en us. a means to rid our-
selves of sin, providing
that w\\e r to refrain from sinnin in the future. In the Bible, Psalm 51 is a prayer
of repentance that asks the Lord to be mnierciful to us as sinners: and in order for us
to be repentant. we ha\e to admit to ourselves that "e hae sinned. We often try to
justify our bad behavior in order to avoid some corrective action or punishment.
Ho%\ e\ er, we should keep in mind that justifying our inappropriate actions does not
necessarily nullify then. Most all of the great people in the Bible conunitted some
w wrongdoing, and still. God was able to use them. Perhaps God \\ill use us for His .
good, even though we ha% e sinned.

Understanding Insulin Resistance Syndrome


As the country's obesity epidemic continues to claim more and more lives,
many people are aware of the numerous negative consequences of being
overweight. The foremost disease that comes to mind with respect to obesity is
diabetes, an illness that now features a roster of more than 18 million Americans.
While.:obesity may lead to diabetes, it is certainly not the lone cause thereof. In
fact, a combination of medical conditions known as insulin resistance syndrome
can greatly increase a person's chances of developing type 2 diabetes, the most
common form of the disease.
Obesity coupled with high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels and/or
heart disease can cause insulin resistance syndrome, which acts as a catalyst of
sorts in the development of diabetes.
Defining Insulin Resistance Syndrome
In a healthy person's body, insulin plays an integral role in maintaining that
health. Food is absorbed into the bloodstream in the form of sugars, most notably
glucose. As glucose in the bloodstream increases, a signal is then sent to the
pancreas, which in turn increases the secretion of a hormone called insulin. As
insulin attaches to cells, glucose is .removed from the bloodstream and used as a
valuable source of energy.
When someone is insulin-resistant, the cells that normally would respond to the
insulin released by the pancreas have a diminished ability to make that response.
Therefore, the pancreas releases more insulin to compensate, in the hopes that
more insulin will mean a better chance of reducing the sugars such as glucose in
the bloodstream. However, as this process goes on, people who are insulin-
resistant develop high sugar levels in the blood, which often leads to diabetes.
What Causes Insulin Resistance Syndrome?
There are a number of factors, including:
Obesity. Obesity, particularly abdominal obesity, is perhaps the greatest factor
in the development of insulin resistance syndrome. The more obese a person is,
the less responsive they are to insulin, which can prove to be the start of a very
vicious downward spiral. As the role of
Ophthalmology insulin is linked directly to removing
glucose from the blood to use as a
GREGORY D. SNODGRASS, M.D. source of energy, an obese person who
Located In SHANDS At Live Oak is resistant to insulin needs the

addition, the more obese a person gets, the harder it will be to lose that weight if
and when they decide to do so. If they allow their bodies to become resistant to
insulin, they will suffer greatly from a lack of energy when they attempt to shed
the weight.
High blood pressure. High blood pressure has long been linked to diabetes and,
when combined with other medical conditions, can increase the body's resistance
to insulin. In general, the higher a person's blood pressure is, the more likely they
are to be insulin- resistant. In fact, possible evidence as to the impact of high blood
pressure on insulin resistance is seen in American Diabetes Association reports
that state at least 40 percent of people with diabetes'have high blood pressure.
SAbnormal cholesterol levels. Insulin-resistant people typically have low levels
of HDL, which is commonly referred to as "good cholesterol." Few might be
aware that certain fats are actually good for the body. HDL cholesterol contains
those good fats, meaning the higher a person's HDL, the better. However, high.
LDL ("bad cholesterol"), which often is the case for those resistant to insulin,,
increases a person's chance of heart attack or stroke.
How is Insulin Resistance Syndrome Diagnosed and Treated?
Oftentimes, a diagnosis rests on a doctor's suspicion. Since there is no standard
test for determining insulin resistance, a doctor's (and even a patient's) suspicion
or intuition often play an integral role in diagnosis. What patients must remember
is to be as honest and knowledgeable as possible. For instance, family history can
determine a person's likelihood of being insulin- resistant. If a parent or sibling
has'type 2 diabetes, or suffers from hypertension or cardiovascular disease, then
the patient could have a greater susceptibility to insulin resistance syndrome.
In addition, other possible indicators do exist. For example, an apple-shaped
body, where there is more fat around the waist than around the hips, could indicate
a person is resistant to insulin. Age can also play a role, as those over 40 can be
more susceptible.
Treatment for insulin resistance syndrome is most often a variety of medications.
Doctors can prescribe medications that make a person's body more sensitive to
insulin. Also, doctors typically prescribe drugs to lower cholesterol or others
designed to treat the conditions that often.Ilead to insulin resistance syndrome.
Perhaps the best treatment, however, is pretreatment by preventing the onset of
the conditions in the first place. Exercising, maintaining a healthy weight and
enjoying a healthy diet are the best ways to avoid both insulin resistance syndrome
and diabetes.
