New traffic



signal



at Houston



and Duval

Robert Bridges
Democrat Reporter
One of the most dangerous intersections in
Live Oak has been tamed with the installation
of a new three-position traffic signal. There.
had previously been only a flashing signal at
the intersection of Houston Ave. and Duval
St., the site of numerous serious accidents in
recent years. The new signal was installed ear-
lier this month.
'It's a great thing," said Live Oak Mayor
Sonny Nobles.
The city and county split the $114,000 cost
of installing the light. "We worked together to
get it done," said County Commission Chair-
man Ivie Fowler. "We're really working well
together this year."
Nobles said the city approached the county
about splitting the cost of the signal in part be-
cause of increased traffic on Houston since the
opening of 72nd Trace, the bypass route to the
growing commercial district around 1-10.
Houston intersects 72nd Trace one-and-a-half
miles past Duval.
The signal now flashes fellow and red, but
will be filtd operational once synchronizei
U ith other city traffic signals.

I love the look of wood, but need
a less expensive option.
What should I consider? ,


Laminate flooring provides the realistic look of'
wood, tile. slate or stone, but at a lower cost. A
hard-surface flooring, it's easy to maintain, and
* highly\ resistant to scratches, dents and dings,
moisture and %wear-through. Laminate flooring
works well in kitchens and bathrooms, and it
also holds up better to some of the common pet
problems, such as scratching.. You can find the
best selection of laminate flooring at the best
prices at Live Oak Paint Center

Illinois. Upon completion of
his training, he was assigned
to the USS Sproston DD 577
%which was being commis-
sioned in Texas. As a member
of the original crew, Hehir
also became a plank owner of
the ship along %with his ship
mates 'The USS Sproston DD
577 was then deployed to the
Aleutian Islands. Their job
was to shell Matsuwa and
three other islands, with tem-
peratures dipping to 40 below
zero, making it difficult and
hazardous. The ship was later
deployed to the South Pacific
where it engaged in five ma-
jor battles, including the bat-'
tles of Leyte, Luzon and Oki- "
nawa. The USS Sproston DD
577 was accredited with
shooting down seven Japan-
ese Kimikazes, four bombers,
sinking one Japanese subma-
rine and one Japanese gun
boat. One of the better times
Hehir remembers was being
at gun practice with nine: oth-
er Destroyers firing at a
sleeve being towed by a
plane. One of the Destroyers
fired too close to the plane


and the pilot radioed back to
the ships, which Hehir heard
on his battle station ear
phones, "I'm not pushing the
sleeve, I'm towing it."
In 1945. he received his
honorable discharge from the
U.S. Na-N as Gunners Mate
3rd class. He returned to New
York and married Virginia
McLoughlin. They had three
sons, James, Steven and
Matthew. In 1958, they
moved to North Miami Beach
and then in 1974 to Live Oak.
Hehir is keeping up with
tradition like his father who,
joined the American Legion.
after World War I. He is a
member of St. Francis Xavier
Catholic Church and is a
fourth degree in the Knights
of Columbus.
He supports our troops 100
percent.

Attention American

Profile readers!
Here's a peek at what's inside the Friday, Nov. 17. Amer-
ican Profile which is a bonus newsmagazine in each week-
end edition of the Suiwannee Democrat.
Cover Story: Meet an Average American-The average
American has a high school diploma, lives in the state
where he was born, drives an 8-, ear-old vehicle and prefers
smooth ox er chunky peanut butter. He owns a pet, goes to
church at least once a month and generally is satisfied with
his life. These are among the findings of author Kevin O'-
Keefe, who spent tvwo years traveling from New Hampshire
to HawLaii looking for the Average Joe and Jane, and found
Bob Burns in Windham, Conn. (pop 22,857).
Hometown Hero: Wild horseman-Former rodeo com-
petitor and Life magazine rodeo photographer Dayton Hyde
saw a group of wild mustangs enclosed on a feedlot in the
1980s and decided to do something about it. He founded
the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary. an 11,000 acre
refuge for some 500 wild horses in South Dakota. Hyde has
opened it to movie ciews and the Lakota Indians, who con-
sider his land sacred and hold their annual Sundance there.
Entertainment: Capt. Kangaroo Music-Bill Thomas, the
longtime songwnTter for TV's "Captain Kangaroo'" and a pi-
oneer in the field of chddien's entertainment, has hundreds
of stories to tell about working on the TV series that capti-
vated several generations of kids. He has also released an
enhanced CD of songs and videos from his work on the in-
novative, beloved program hosted by the late Bob Keeshop.
which recnivly riaiked the 50th oantviag gyof its..TVde- ,,
but.

COMMENTARY


Those few short words



that change everything


Derek Maul, derek-
maul@gmail.com,
Sunbelt Newspapers
Just a few short
words can change
everything. "Yes,
I'll marry you ..."
"It's a baby girl..."
"Your (three-year-old) daughter
needs serious surgery ..." "I took
the training wheels off her bike ..."
"She passed her drivers test ..."
"I'm moving out ..." "She was
alive when we put her into the am-
bulance ..." "Daddy, he sent me a
dozen roses ..." "I want to marry
your daughter-but I want to ask for
your blessing before I propose ...."
It's not turning 50 that makes you
older; it's your children growing up.
That's my baby we're talking about-
making plans for the rest of her life,
gushing about a wonderful future
with the man of her dreams, floating
around on Cloud Nine, scattering ;
droplets of genuine sunshine as she
glances reflexively at her left hand
to watch the light bounce of the
facets of that sparkly ring.
I honestly don't believe I've ever
seen our daughter this happy, this
content, and this genuinely joyful.
The joy runs deep and it runs true,
and I understand now why my fu-
ture father-in-law Bob was pulling
so hard for me back in 1977-78. I
may have been a starving c6llege-
student, a foreigner with an open-
ended ticket back to the UK, but his
daughter was happy and that put me
somewhere in the realm of a Gandhi
or an Albert Schweitzer in his eyes.
So when the phone rang and our
daughter shared her exciting news I
couldn't help myself, I cried. I tried


to talk but I had to pass the phone
over to my wife. Something like
that touches a father where it
counts, and those tears washed
away so much of the growing-up
pain that I had to let them come. I
was happy, but I could hardly bring
myself to talk.
Naomi met "My Craig" this.
spring on the family cruise to Alas-
ka. He was working as an assistant
cruise-director and must have done
an extra special primo job of enter-
taining one passenger in particular.
The next month was telling: My
wife used her cell-phone something
like 30 minutes, I logged around
180 and our son chatted closer to
300. Miz "This-phone-is-attached-
to-the-side-of-my-head," on the oth-
er hand; clocked in somewhere over
4,800.
Yes, ALLTEL, I'm one grateful
customer who is extremely pleased
with the new "Circle of Friends"
program. We put Craig on the list
when we got back from our trip
west and I think we saved around
$350 dollars the first month alone.
It's not a bad way to date. My on-
e line map program gives this infor-
mation with the directions from
Tampa to Juneau, Alaska. "4,261
miles by road-about 4 days 23
hours." Telephone, e-mail, cards,
letters, flowers and the occasional
package. They got to know each
other pretty well, they asked and an-
swered tough questions and they be-
came great friends well before
Craig flew down for that first week-
end visit.
And let me tell you Dads out
there, this man treats my daughter
with respect and that fact is huge in


every way that counts. Craig en-
courages her, he believes in her and
he wants her to move forward into
the best possible future. He is com-
mitted to experiencing all the joy
and the adventure of a life together
lived without compromise and with-
out wasting the priceless gifts God
has given us like brains, hard work
and an education.
I haven't the slightest idea about
how prayer works but I can tell you
this-spoken and unspoken both-our
children have been saturated in the
stuff. Prayer works and prayer
changes people; that much I know
for sure.
I can already anticipate the ob-
jections, so please read carefully if
public faith sometimes offends
you. Prayer is never a magical in-
cantation that overrides our poor
decisions, and I certainly don't be-
lieve divine intervention gives
Christians an easier road in life.
But I can say with confidence that
prayer has a tremendous impact
that can account for substantive
and authentic transformation. Faith
has permeated the details of these
last few years, both the joy and the
pain. And the point, of course, has
been the reality of God's presence
regardless.
We're looking at a June wedding,
2007. And like I said it's not the
passage of time that's making me
older, it's the children growing up.
Welcome, Craig, I think you're go-
ing to fit right in.

US 129 South, Live Oak Monday; Nov. 20. Appointments
will begin at 9 a.m.
A stroke, also known as a "brain attack," is ranked as the
third leading killer in the world, and the second among
women. Through preventive screenings, the risk of having a
stroke can be greatly reduced.
Screenings are fast, painless and low cost. They involve
the use of ultrasound technology, and scan for potential
health problems related to: blocked arteries which can lead
to a stroke, aortic aneurysms which can lead to a ruptured
aorta, and hardening of the arteries in the legs. which are a
strong predictor of heart disease Also offered for men and
women, is a bone density screening to assess their risk for
osteoporosis.
"It saved my husband from ha\ ing a major stroke."'
William and Harriett West-Zephyrhills.
All four screenings take less than an hour to complete. A
complete' vascular screening package, including the
Stroke/Carotid Artery. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm and-An-
kle Brachial Index (hardening of the arteries) screenings-is
$109. Sign-up for a complete vascular package; include the
osteoporosis screening and pay only $129.
Life Line Screening was established in 1993, and has
since become the nation's leading provider'of vascular
screenings. Over 75 ultrasound teams are on staff to travel to
your local community, bringing the screenings to you. These
non-invasive, inexpensive and painless, ultrasound tests help
people identify their risk for stroke, vascular diseases or os-
teoporosis early enough for their physician to begin prev'en-
' tive'piocedures. .... .'' .. 'A. '

member families.
At the annual meeting in September, Mr.

"younger guys" to fill the leadership role.
George will certainly be missed, but he has not George Poucherwas presi

Randall Dasher was elected as the new president of the Suwannee
County Farm Bureau at the annual meeting. However, Randall is not new
to Farm Bureau. He has served on the county board for nearly 25 years'
and has been vice president for most of those years.
Randall got his start in Farm Bureau in the Young Farmer & Rancher

Committee. (Randall has also served as a State Director for the Florida

One of the regions longest-
runmning heritage festivals, Old
Tyme Farm Day, will be held
Nov. 25 at the Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park in Live
Oak. The event originated in
the 1980s when lifelong'
Suwannee County residents,
John Paul Schneider and Tom
Boatright began gathering
friends at the Schneider farm.
Longtime farmers came to-
gether to re-enact plowing and
other farming chores with their
mules and workhorses. As
more people began to come
ox er the N ears to share heritage
crafts, arts and activities, the
event moved to the Spirit of
the Su\\annee Music Park in
1987. 'Under the shaping of
Music Park founder, Jean Cor-
nett. the event evolved into
one of the major e ents at the
Park.
Thousands of visitors over
the years have participated in
rural traditions such as cane
grinding, soap making, black-
smithing, kettle corn cooking,
weaving and spinning, fly-
wheeling (small steam en-
gines), cooking over a fire,
leather-curing, candle making
and more. Schoolchildren
have delighted in activities
such as falconry demonstra-
tions, story-telling, mule-
drawn wagon rides, the art of
quilting and the fun of clog-
ging. Today, the Boatright
Barn at the Spirit of the
Suwannee serves as a mini-
museum of sorts, with tools,
artifacts and farming imple-
ments giving a glimpse of
North Florida history from the
1800s.
Event coordinator, Gloria
Rittman, is seeking craftspeo-

Q. I still hear people argue about the safety of
fillings with mercury. What the truth?
A: Two new studies have confirmed that
amalgam, the traditional substance used to fill
cavities, is safe, even for school-age children.
The two studies, one conducted in the United
States, the other in Europe, took test groups of
children and used amalgam fillings, which
contain half mercury and half resin composite
filling. These fillings are not associated with
neurological or kidney problems as children age.
In the U.S.-based study, led by a professor of
neurology .at the Harvard Medical School,
researchers studied 534 children, age 6 to 10..
In a study based in Portugal but led by an
expert from the University of Washington in
Seattle, researchers found no significant
difference in loss of intelligence, memory,
coordination or concentration. Both studies
concluded that amalgam fillings are not
associated with neurological or kidney problems
as children age.
Though the studies did not address the issue of
amalgam fillings in children under age 6,
pediatric dental experts said any potential
exposure in children under 6 would be brief by
definition since baby teeth fallout by the time a
child is 8 or 9. Talk with your dentist about any
concerns you have about amalgam fillings.

Farm-City week emphasizes the


value of the urban-rural partnership


Autumn is a time of optimism for Florida
farmers as they prepare to harvest their
winter crops to feed the nation. Fall also
brings the annual Farm-City Week, which
will be observed November 17-23, and
Florida Agriculture Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson is urging Floridians to take the
opportunity to reflect on the interdepen-
dence of farmers, consumers and all those
whose efforts make Florida's agricultural
system work.
"'Every year. Farm-City Week reminds us
all rural and urban residents alike -
that we live and work together in the same
environment and depend on each other,"
Bronson said.
Farm-City Week started by the Na-
tional Farm-City Council and promoted na-
tioually by the American Farm Bureau -
is observed the seven days leading up to
and including Thanksgiving. Under the
theme "Partners in Progress," Farm-City
Week salutes all those who work as part of
the complex network that brings food from
the field to the table. These "Partners in
Progress" include farmers and ranchers, re-
searchers, processors, brokers, truckers and
shippers, advertisers, wholesalers and re-
tailers. This network results in,numerous
benefits to society by piaviding an abun-
dance and variety of food'a's well as ptrod-
ucts used to make clothing, housing, medi-
cines. and'countless other items used daily.
"The key is the interdependence among
those who produce the products, those who
consume the products, and all those in the
production and marketing chain between
the producer and consumer," said Bronson.
"'These vital farm-city partnerships with
rural and urban communities working to-
gether have made the most of our rich
agricultural resources, and they continue to
contribute to our health and well being and
to the strength of our economy."

Stress and anxiety may lead to health problems
A stress response is the body's reaction to dealing witgi a threat, also
known as the "fight-or-flight" response. In response to a stressful
situation, the body releases hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol.
Adrenaline causes your heart rate and blood pressure to increase.
Cortisol is the primary stress hormone which causes increased
amounts of sugars in the bloodstream and also suppresses the
digestive system. After a crisis situation is over, the stress-response
system allows your body to return to normal functioning. When a
physical threat is imminent, this response is useful as an increased
amount of energy, speed, and concentration is helpful in a threatening
situation.
Stresses associated with work, relationships, and major life changes
may trigger the stress-response. In addition, it can turn into a
condition known as generalized ,mi \./ disorder. If you experience
constant worries and tension, treatment may be helpful.
Antidepressants such as Paxil and Zoloft may be prescribed to help
with anxiety. Anti-anxiety prescription medications such as Xanax
may help with anxiety. Regular physical activity is another way to
help cope with stress. Also, setting aside a few minutes a day to
breathe deep and relax may help. 309692-F


Bronson also urged Floridians to visit
their local community farmers' markets
during the fall and winter to enjoy fresh
Florida fruits and vegetables at the peak of
freshness and wholesomeness.
Shopping at farmers' markets is a grow-
ing trend in Florida, and the number of
farmers' markets in the state has doubled in
the last 10 years. More than 70 community
farmers' markets are listed with the Florida
Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services. Half of Florida's 67 counties
have farmers' markets.
"The increasing popularity of farmers'
markets is due to a couple of factors,"
Bronson said. "As people have become
more health-conscious, there's a growing
demand for fresh, high-quality produce.
And what could be more healthful than
produce that's grown locally, often just
minutes away from your home?"
People who shop at farmers' markets en-
joy fresh, wholesome 'produce throughout
the growing season, while helping to keep
small farms viable. .There are also less ob-
vious benefits: buying locally grown food
conserves energy and other natural re-
sources, reduces air and water pollution,
preserves green space, and helps build a -
stronger, more close-knit community.
. "There teuds to be a social aspect to the
markets." Bronson said. "The historic lies
between farmer and consumer are re-
stored."
Florida's 44,000 commercial farmers
grow more than 280 different crops. Year
round, Florida ranks No. 2 nationally in the
U.S. production of fresh vegetables. Flori-
da provides 80 percent of the fresh vegeta-
bles grown in the United States during Jan-
uary. February and March of each year.
Florida agriculture has an estimated overall
economic impact of more than $87 billion
annually.

professional, serve on the
board and be elected by the
membership of the organiza-
tion. He has served for five
years on the board and has .
been a member of the FRPA
for 18 years, 15 of which he
has been actively invol\ ed.
Scott has served as the vice
president of advocacy since
2003 and has also served in
several other capacities. He
was elected to serve this po-.
sition by a majority vote of
i the 2,100 plus members of
the association.
Scott will serve as the pres-
ident-elect for a one-year
term after which he will be-
come inducted as the presi-
dent of the association.
Scott's duties as president-
elect include traveling ,
throughout.the state with the
association's president to car-
ry out the strategic plan and
participate in the legislative
process. .
"My involvement with the
association means people
throughout the state will
know where Suwannee
County is. It's about repre-
senting citizens and getting
our voice out there," Scott
said.
He said his involvement
will also help Suwannee
County obtain more grants
for local projects.
Scott was hired as the di-
rector of Suwannee Count)
Parks and Recreation 18
years ago. He majored in ed-
ucation in Illinois. Shortly af-
ter completing his education,
he worked at the YMCA for
three years and served on the
city parks and recreations for
one year. While in Illinois he
helped create several youth
and community programs, in-
cluding a drug prevention
program. After that time he
moved back to Live Oak, his
hometown.
Since he has been with r
Suwannee County Parks and
Recreation Scott has helped
create 10 parks and 17 com-
munity programs.
"It's more than just base-
ball," Scott said about his
job.
The program works with
other agencies, suchias
Suwannee River Water Man-
agement, to bring economic
benefits and address environ-
mental issues in the county.
Suwannee Counts Parks and
Recreation implements pro-
grams such as land purchase
for environmentally sensitive
areas.
"It's about molding chil-
dren, protecting water quality
and land resources and boost-


ing the economy in the com-
munity," he said.
Scott said he chose the job
because of his desire to make
a difference and give back to
the community.
"The parks and recreations
board pushes to pro% ide the
best le\ el of parks and recre-
ational activities for citizens.
We have a passion for our
youth ... to do what's right for
them. I want to make the
community better," he said.


Howell said because of in-
creased support from local
ministries and the community
CMAM's programs are grow-
ing. This summer the organi-
zation put on a summer youth
program, and they have re-
cently organized a youth club
that meets on the first
Wednesday each month.
CMAM is also having a
Christmas dinner in Decem-
ber.
CMLAM is driven by a de-
sire to fulfill the conmmission-
of Matthew 25:35-40 "here


Jesus commanded his disci-
ples to feed the hungry,
clothe the naked and care for
the sick. CMAM is an um-
brella organization for numer-
ous churches and organiza-
tions that assist the needy and
minister to youth.
Howell has a vision to see
ministries of all nationalities
and denominations come to-
gether to make Jesus' com-
mission a reality.
"We need to come out of
the four walls and come to-
gether to help improve our


community especially among
the faith-based organiza-
tions," she said.
Howell said she is pleased
with the increased participa-
tion among various ministries
this year from last year. She
met pastor Godsmark recent-
ly at the Ministerial Alliance
and the two connected. As a
result, Godsmark and about
18 members of his church
served as volunteers at the
Thanksgiving Celebration
this year.
"We were in\ ited and we're

glad to serve and be a part of
what they were doing," Gods-
mark said. "I believe when
churches come together we
can be more effective."
Godsmark said his church
is community minded and
teaching is based on the idea
that all members are minis-
ters of the Gospel of Christ.
. "Jesus washed his disciples'
feet and therefore we can do
the same for others," he said.
Howell would like to
thank the numerous business-
es, churches, organizations


and individuals that spon-
sored and volunteered at the
event, including the follow-
ing: Marlin Ivey, pastor
Dove, Christ Central Min-
istries, Golden Corral, Live
Oak Police Department,
County Commissioner Billy
Maxwell, Sheryl's Noon Buf-
fet, Mayo Cafe, CMAM
members and anonymous
donors.

Martello will run a hybrid defense man-

Lady Dogs win two more

Suwannee High girls soccer team moves to 5-0


By Jon Wood
The Suwannee High Lady
Bulldogs soccer team posted
two more wins last week to
move to 5-0 for the season
and 1-0 in their district. The
Lady Dogs defeated district
foe Middleburg 2-1 Wednes-
day and beat Oak Hall of
Gainesville 3-1 Friday.
Suwannee traveled to Mid-
dleburg Wednesday for their
first district match of the sea-
son to face the Lady Mus-
tangs. This would prove to be
a hard-fought match from
start to finish and was not set-
tled until the final whistle
blew.
Suwannee struck first in
the 17th minute ihen Ashlev
Harris, directed a beautiful
pass to Katie Prevatt, who
went one on one with the ,
keeper and fired a blast that
went into the left side net.
Middleburg came back quick-
ly and equalized the game
three minutes later with a shot
that squeezed between diving
keeper Erica Sparks and the
left goal post. The score re-
mained knotted at 1-1 until
the second half when Suwan-
nee scored the game-winning

play-offs the intensity of the defense is always
turned up a few notches," Martello said. "If
you're not used to handling that kind of [man-
to-man] pressure, a lot of teams just fold."
Martello said he tries to duplicate that level of
intensity "at every practice."
The man knows something about winning.
A power forward in college, Martello's Lip-
scomb University Bisons won the National As-
sociation of Intercollegiate Athletics national
championship in 1986. Originally from
Okaloosa County in the Florida panhandle,
Martello won a scholarship to the Nashville
school.
While a district championship may be possi-


ble this season, Martello has his eyes on a big-
ger prize. "It's going to be a learning year," he
said.. "We're putting the foundation in place
for even better things ,he following year."
Last year's Dogs went 13-12 and missed the
play-offs, falling in the semifinals of the Dis-
trict 3-4A tournament. Look for them to go'
further this year.
The Suwannee Valley Tip-off Classic begins
Thursday at 7:30 when the Mayo Hornets play
the Hamilton Trojans in the Suwannee High
Gym. The Dogs debut Friday against Hamil-
ton, then play Mayo Saturday. Both games be-
gin at 7:30 p.m.

son, the last bite of the year can also produce
some of the year's biggest fish. Also, cold-
weather bass fishing can be a numbers game:
where you find one, there's bound to be
more.
On warm sunny days, anglers can often
find fish relatively shallow, even in Decem-
ber. Fish will often gather on the first struc-
ture element the edge of a weed line or a
rock pile off shore and they .can be taken
on all manner of motion lures such as
crankbaits. Vibrating, rattling baits like a
Berkley Frenzy Rattl'r are most productive
when water temperatures are falling. Even a
Gulp! Bat Wing Frog fished like a buzzbait
can coax a hungry bass out from the inside of
a weedline. Later in the month, the fish are
likely to be on the outside edges and turns.


But as the water temperature drops even
more, the fish generally head toward deeper
water and bottom baits like Berkley Power
Jigs or a drop-shot rig are in order. Around
this time fishing becomes more vertical than
horizontal as anglers fish the bottom. With
steadily dropping temperatures and steady
winds the norm this time of year, look for
channel drop-offs where high banks give you
some refuge from the wind, then work the
bottom structure.
There's plenty of time left in the year for
watching football and deer hunting, so don't
miss your chance to cash in on the last big
bite of the year;

IndyCar Series to visit Daytona for preseason testing


Tony Kanaan ('04) and Dan Whel-
don ('05) and Vitor Meira. The visit
allowed IndyCar Series officials to
determine the possibility of DIS
serving as a preseason testing venue.
Series officials were able to see
transitions onto the banking, tire
wear/side loads and braking zones
while looking for any challenging
surface areas on the track. The test
took place on the 2.73-mile tri-oval
and road course, which included 10


turns.
"Expanding our preseason testing
schedule to include Daytona Inter-
national Speedway is good for both
fans and teams," said John Lewis,
vice president of league develop-
ment for the Indy Racing League,
the sanctioning body of the IndyCar
Series and the Indy Pro Series. "The
feedback coming out of the test
from our drivers and teams, Fire-
stone, Honda and Ethanol was very


positive and supportive of the Indy-
Car Series pursuing Daytona as a
test venue."
"We are very excited to be able
to host pre-season testing for the In-
dyCar Series here at Daytona," said
Daytona International Speedway
President Robin Braig. "Bringing
another motorsports sanctioning
body to Daytona further solidifies us
as the 'World Center of Racing.' We
look forward to welcoming the stars

IndyCar Series officials an-
nounced today that the League will
conduct preseason testing for the
first time at Daytona International
Speedway Jan. 30-Feb. 1, 2007.
In late September, the IndyCar
Series completed a successful conm-
patibility test at Daytona Interna-
tional Speedway, featuring past se-
ries champions Sam Hornish Jr.
(2001, '02, '06), Scott Dixon ('03),


and fans of the IndyCar Series."
The'tentative schedule for pre-
season testing is as follows:

Yontz wants to wear Twin Late Model crown


Submitted
Most people aren't thinking about heading
to the beach in the middle of November, but
that is exactly what 20-year-old Alex Yontz is
thinking about. The Myrtle Beach 400 Late
Model Stock Car event will be held from No-
vember 16th-19th at Myrtle Beach Speedwayv
(SC) Yontz is going there and he is going with
the intentions of winning.
"It's going to be a fun weekend," said
Yontz. "I really like the Beach. We won the
UARA race down there back in the spring, and
we had a really good car. We have always run
pretty decent down there, and I expect that we
will be good this tune as well."
It has already) been a stellar year for the


young hotshoe. Yontz finished second in
points in the UALRA-Stars Standings in only
his first year of racing fill-time on the tour.
Recently. he brought home his most unique
trophy, the Grandfather Clock from Mar-
tins\ille Speedway.
What more could a guy want?
That would be to claim- the next big event
trophy, at the Myrtle Beach 250, the LMSC
portion of the Myrtle Beach 400 weekend.
"I kno\ it pays around $15.000 to win, so it
is a pretty big race. I don't know if there is a
special trophy or not, but I would like to add
one to the shelf.
"I finally got the clock from Martinsville. I
put it in m\ bedroom. It looks really nice. It


has a silent function so that it doesn't chime
when I am sleeping, although when I first got
it I didn't know that and I was like. 'Man. I am
not going to be able to sleep with this thing.'
Then I found that little switch on it."
The race is 100 laps longer than the typical
150-lap UARA-Stars events that Yontz is used
to, but that doesn't seem to bother Alex too
much. The last time he was at the rough, old
track he was able to bring home the win, and
he did it only leading the last 30 or so laps.
"It's going to be a pretty long race. We stop
at halfway so that we can change tires. We are
pretty much going to go the same way. I might
dnve the car a httle bit harder, because we get
to put on those tires. You don't have to really


save your tires as much.
"It would reallN top our season if we could
win it," added Yontz. "It would be really sweet
to win the two biggest races of the season, that
would definitely be great for us. I reallU think
that we have a good shot going into this week-
end We are really looking forward to it. I'm
just teadN to hit the beach."
The Myrtle Beach 400 Weekend will get
underway No\ 16 with practice, and the fea-
ture %ill be held on Sunday. No\ 19. with rac-
ing action starting at 12.30pm.
For more information on Alex Yontz, please

tNewv, niche market for calf prod ucers


Submitted.
Public concern over food
safety has.spawned a rIew niche
market for cattle producers:'
age- and source-verified,
cattle. Florida cattle producers
can earn substantial premiums
by age- and source-verifying
their calves, which qualifies
beef from their animals for sale
to Japan and other export mar-
kets.
One company helping ranch-
ers take advantage of this op-
portunity is Okeechobee Live-
stock Market. Florida's largest
livestock market is selling
truckload lots of age- and
source-verified cattle over the
Internet through Producers Cat-
tie Auction LLC, an on-line cat-
tle auction company based in
Mobile, Ala. -
"Retailers are paying premi- '
umrs l.a~.gee and source-\ eri-
fied cnfffe. ifT liefes'it 'need
for the feedlots and the packers
to be the only ones in the pro-


duction chain that are getting
them," said Okeechobee Live-
stock Market President Todd
Clemons. "Our aim is to help
ranchers take care of age and
source verification on their end
so they can keep more of the
money in their own pockets.
The cow/calf producer is the
only person who can verify the
age and source of feeder
calves."
In December 2003, a single
cow in Washington state tested
positive for bovine spongiform
encephalopathy (BSE), also
known as mad cow disease. As
a result, US beef was banned
by over 40 countries, including
Japan, the United States' most
lucrative beef export mar-
ket. Most of the markets that
were closed have since re-
opened, but with restrictions on
US imports. Since most cases
.of BSE ccur in ca :te-oAer 3i0
months of age, many countries
now require that cattle be less


than 30 months old at time of
slaughter. Japan, which ended
its ban in July, accepts only
beef from cattle 20 months old
or younger.
"At this time, only the export,
markets require age and source
verification," said Producers
Cattle, Auction President and
General Manager Jim
Austin. "But once consumers
find out what Japan is requir-
ing, it is likely that the domes-
tic beef trade will also demand
more verification. Producers
who are proactive and get in-
volved in the verification
process early should be posi-
tioning themselves well for the
future."
Since April, Okeechobee
Livestock Market has sold
25,000 head of cattle through
on-line auctions, and 80 per-
cent of, those were.ag and
source' etrified. .The prmniums
paid for age- and source-veri-'
fled calves are determined by

supply and demand:
"If age. and source verifica-
tion becomes required by the
government, then it will be the
norm and there won't be extra
money to be made," Clemons
explained. "Of course, that has-
n't happened yet. Right now,
buyers are willing to pay a pre-
mium for these cattle because
there are so few of them avail-
able."

The rancher creates a paper

Suwannee tied the game
just before halftime when

tle on.
"We have educated ourselves
about exactly what is required
by Japan and other export mar-
kets," Austin said. "There is a
lot of misinformation out
there. Ranchers don't need to
use expensive, electronic ID
tags, and they don't need to pay
to have their data stored in a
,commercial database. The re-
quirements are really pretty
simple, and ranchers don't have
to spend a lot to meet them."
. The premises identification
number is assigned by the US
Department of Agriculture un-
der the National Animal Identi-
fication System.
Rancher Woody Larson of
Dixie Ranch in Okeechobee
has been selling cattle through
Producers Cattle Auction since
1993. He said he's pleased \ith

tion process.
"As long as we plan ahead

shot from Kelsey Bowen. An
insurance goal was added late
in.the match when Prevatt
challenged the onrushing
keeper and got a pass to Blair
Clayton who put it in to give
the Lady Dogs the 3-1 victory.
"I couldn't be any prouder
of this team," said coach
Kathy Wood. "These were
two intense matches. Both
teams played hard the entire
game and to come away with
two wins is very rewarding.

it along with our regular work."
Larson said he started age-
and source-verifying his calves
"to get ahead of the curve." "I
try to do what I think the cus-
tomer will want," he said. "I
think people want to' know
where their cattle come from,
not just in Japan, but here at
home too."
Perry Smith, owner of Perry
Smith and Sons Ranch in High-
lands County, has also begun
age and source verifying. He's
been selling cattle online for
years. "I appreciate the research
that has been done to make the
verification process as simple
as possible for -producers,"
Smith said. "It's another job,
but it's doable, and if we want
to market our product, %we've

gets to be, we'll be accustomed

"To be able to get five wins
given our injury situation is
very encouraging," Wood
added. Senior Amanda
Mendez suffered a sprained
ankle in the opening week and
senior Alicia Cash is recover-

Both players should be avail-

"In order to succeed in life you must begin
with one four letter xord-WORK," said Sena-
tor Lawson to the young basketball hopefuls.
"You can achieve anything if you work hard.
There will be times throughout your education
when others will try to hold you back, but ou
must press forward to find success," he said.
Lawson met with NFCC .Athletic Director'
Steve Givens and members of the first mnen's
basketball academy recently at the NFCC:

ty young men who might other%% ise not attend

ing young men develop sports skills potential-
ly for sports careers beyond the conumuIity
college level, but on developing srudv skills so,
that they can be successful college students.
NFCC held open tryouts July 8, When class-
es started Aug. 23, 29 accepted placement in
the academy. Of the seven no longer in the pro-
gram, five are still enrolled at NFCC, concen-
trating on strengthening their academics w ith
plans to return to the NFCC Basketball Acade-
my for the spring 2007 term.
Students in the basketball acadeni are part
of a special study regime which includes tu-
tors, mentors, and a daily studb hall. Through-
out :the term they attend \orkshiops on study
skills, test taking; note taking, time manage-
ment, money management and nutrition. Fac-
ulty regularly sends attendance and academic

liott, Dale Ratliff, Wade Thomas,
Arky Rogers and Clint Summers;
just to name a few.
This was. Justin Johnson's third
year. competing at the USTRC Na-
tional Finals. However, it was his
first big win at the finals. Johnson
had a total of six changes to win
and one of those was with his Dad,
UPS driver Jay Johnson,. who is a
number five header and'Justin is a
number seven heeler so they roped
in the number 12 shootout.. "I real-
ly wanted to win with my dad, but I
roped a .leg on all three steers, to-
taling 38.03 which 15 seconds of
that was in penalties for roping
three legs, and we were too long to
make it to the short go;," said John-
son. However, Johnson entered the
USTRC number 12 Preliminary
Roping with. his Georgia High
School Rodeo friend,' Joseph Pod-
skoc, and they placed fourth over-
all, roping steers in 35.03 receiving
$9,300,. Gist Trophy Bits, $1,500
for wining a fast time in round


number two and a number 12 US-
TRC shootout position to rope for a
grand prize of $100,000.
The number 12 shootout was
held first thing on TOct. 24 with
close to 400 gems entered. Podskoc
and Johnson were team No. 357 so
they didn't get to rope until later on
in the day but when they did rope
the announcer said, "You have a to-
tal time of 23.92 on three steers,
call home boys because you,are the
second high team back for a chance
to win $100,060." Only the top 20
teams on three head, make it back
for the short round and all 20 win
money. The high team back was
from Arizona and they were 23.58
seconds on three head. The short go
starts at team No. 20 and goes up to
team number one with loud music
and the USTRC announcer letting
each team know what time they
need to be in order to' take over the
lead. When it finally got to the sec-
ond high, team of Podskoc and
Johnson, the announcer stated, "All
this Georgia and Florida team have
to do is make a 9.02 seconds run to
take over the. lead and a chance to
win no less than $55,600." When
Podskoc spoke for the steer the mu-


sic vibrated throughout
the coliseum and the
clock stopped at a
smooth 8.38 seconds,
taking over the lead
with 32.30 seconds on
four head. The No. one
team of Clark and Beat-
ty from Arizona needed
an 8.72 to tie and an
8.71 to take over the
lead of the number 12 "
shootout. The clock '-
stopped at 8.66 seconds
with a 32.24 on four
head winning $100,000.
by .06 seconds. -Pod-
skoc and Johnson took
home $55, 600 and Gist

The crosses come in four different
sizes, 58, 36, 28 and 14 1/2. There are
five colors to choose from: green;
blue; gold; clear and smoke. Each col-
or has a meaning: green-prosperity;
blue-truth; gold-wealth; clear-glory
and smoke-sanctuary.
The crosses can be engraved, as
well, for a more personal touch (i.e.,
with love, in loving memory, etc.) Per-
sonalized to your surroundings, the
crosses are for churches, businesses

one believes there is a cross for every-

Crafters and heritage artisans


O ne of the region's longest-running
heritage festivals, Old Tyme Farm
Days, ill be held Nov. 25 at the
Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park
in Live Oak.
The event originated in the 1980s when life-
long Suwannee County residents Jol.i Paul
Schneider and Tom Boatright began gathering
friends at the Schneider farm. Longtime farmers
came together to re-enact plowing and other
farming chores with their mules and workhors-
es. As more people'egan to come o\ er the
years to share heritage crafts, art- and activities.
the event moved to the Spirit of the Suwannee
Music Park in 1987. Under the shaping of Mu-


sic Park founder, Jean Comett, the event
evolved into one of the major events at the Park.
Thousands of visitors over the years have par-
ticipated in rural traditions such as cane grind-
ing, soap making, blacksmithing, kettle corn
cooking, weaving and spinning, fly wheeling
(small steam engines), cooking over a fire,
leather-curing, candle making and more.
Schoolchildren have delighted in activities such
as falconry demonstrations, story-telling, mule-
drawn wagon rides, the art of quilting and the
fun of clogging. Today, the Boatright Barn at
the Spirit of the Suwannee serves as a mini-mu-
seum of sorts, with tools, artifacts and farming
implements giving a glimpse of North Florida

SAD a common winter health concern


Depression is an illness just like diabetes or heart disease. It
is neither a mood nor a personality trait that can be modified at
will, contrary to what some people' perceive. According to
pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly and Company, more than 18
million people in America alone suffer from from some type
of depression, and one in eight persons need treatment for
depression during his or her lifetime.

One type of depression that can occur this time of year is
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). It occurs primarily during
the winter months when the hours of daylight diminish and the
hours of darkness are greater. Among the worst months for
SAD are January and February. Typically, with SAD the
symptoms of depression virtually vanish come the spring
months when the ratio between light and dark become better
balanced. However, there are some exceptions to the rule.
Some people have signs and symptoms of depression in the
spring and summer, often being referred to reverse SAD.

SAD is more than just a case of cabin fever. This condition
induces feelings of lethargy, sleep problems, irritability, and
cravings for starches or sweets. Although the exact numbers
are unknown, it's estimated that about 6 percent of Americans'
suffer from winter SAD, and another 10 percent to 20 percent,
may experience mild SAD symptoms, according to The Mayo
Clinic. The disorder usually begins during adolescence. It's

also .~tore common in women than in men, as are most forms
of depression.

The exact cause of SAD is unknown, but many doctors
suspect a correlation between sunlight and the production of
melotonin, a hormone produced by the pineal gland.
Melotonin regulates the body's internal clock darkness
induces the production of more melotonin to assist with falling
to sleep and' "hibernating." The long nights of winter may
cause melotonin production to be more pronounced, hence
leading to the symptoms of fatigue and listlessness of SAD.
This makes SAD unique from other types of depression, which
are thought to:be mainly attributed to an imbalance in the
brains neurotransmitters serotonin and norephinepherine.

While many people experience blue moods once in a while,
if this feelings prolonged, affecting sleep or eating patterns,
and compromising productivity, help should be sought out. If
thoughts of suicide are present, contact a medical professional
or hospital immediately.

Treatment for SAD may include a combination of
,psychotherapy and medication. Some have also found that
light therapy exposure to a special, bright light that simulates
natural sunlight can also be effective in resetting the
circadian rhythms that regulate a person's internal clock.

love and companionship of a
four-legged ball of love.
These animals are ready to
give you all the love that is
in their hearts just for the
chance to have a family to
care and love them. All they
ask is for the chance to be
seen and to show you how
much they can offer to you.

conditional love .
that is in their hearts..

Deck the halls with boughs of holly


While many Americans are
drawn to inflatable snowmen
and icicle lights for their
holiday decorating, consider a
fresh alternative by
personalizing your decorations
using natural items such as
dried flowers, evergreens,
berries and fruit. Today,
storybook boughs of holly and
simple fresh greenery have
evolved into elaborate
decorations adorning doors,
windows, fences and
lampposts. It may seem
daunting to recreate these
masterpieces, but it's possible
to make nature's beauty part of
the holidays without going any
farther than your backyard.
The art of natural decorating
is mastered by Colonial
Williamsburg experts who have
been making Christmas
memorable and unique for 70
years. Decorators in Colonial
Williamsburg's Historic Area
use more than 79 cases of fruit,
three miles.of white pine roping
and 2,550 natural white pine
and Fraser fir wreaths to adorn
the Historic Area for the
holidays.
"Incorporating a sense of
tradition into your holiday
decorating is as simple as
gathering fresh greenery from
your backyard," said Laura
Viancour, Colonial
Williamsburg's coordinator of
garden programs. "Natural
materials require constant -
maintenance, but their beauty
and wonderful aromas are.
worth the effort."
Guests visiting Colonial
Williamsburg this holiday
i season can witness firsthand the
Historic Area's stunning
seasonal transformation with
the Grand Illumination
celebration on Dec. 3, a time-
honored celebration complete
with fireworks and
entertainment.
To transform your home and
capture the timeless grace of
natural d6cor, decorators at
Colonial Williamsburg offer the
following tips:
Eye for inspiration. Nature
should be your muse when -
creating a traditional, natural.
arrangement. Select berries,
greenery, woods and other
natural adornments with
different textures and colors to
create interest and fi U \our
home with a fresh, holiday
aroma. Colonial Williamsburg's
.decorations provide many ideas
that guests can tr\ at home by
incorporating natural materials
found in their own backyards..
Give your plants moisture.
Keep greens freshlonger by
inserting stems into water-
absorbent florist foam. The
moist green foam used for pre-.,
made floral arrangements can
help promote the longevity of
your natural adornments and is
available at various outlets,.
including online at '
ColonialWilliamsburg.com.
Periodically spritzing your.
arrangements with water can
also help.
Keep your cool. Increase
the longevity of your
decorations by maintaining a
cool temperature, similar to the
inside of a refrigerator. Outdoor
decorations last longer hi the .


Colonial Garden From a Colonial Garden: Ideas, Decorations and Recipes allows guests to bring a Colonial Williamsburg Christmas home. The book features numerous decorating
ideas, including a twist on the traditional apple cone. By substituting holly, oranges, yellow roses and kumquats for apples, this centerpiece can become the focal point of any table.

I:


How do women establish a
sense of well-being throughout
their lives? According to a new
survey, decisions that women
make in their 20s, 30s and 40s can
pave the way to wellness into their
60s and 70s and beyond.
The first-ever study titled "The
State of Women's Wellness,"
commissioned by Lean Cuisine
and conducted by iVillage.com,
focused on six areas of wellness:
physical and nutritional, spiritual,
emotional, occupational,
intellectual and social wellness.
Finding a healthy balance between
each represents a woman's overall
sense of wellness, but the
milestones, wellness goals,
obstacles and solutions are
different at every age.
The Seven Ages of Women's
Wellness
Childhood, when some healthy
lifestyle patterns are formed by
living with your parents.
20s
Milestone: Complete education
and start career. .
Wellness Goals: Manage stress,
start healthy habits.
Obstacle: According to the
survey, women this age are more
likely to describe meals they eat
on a regular basis as "not too
healthy."
Solution: Keep healthy foods on
hand (yogurt, fresh fruit, frozen
entrees).


30s
Milestone: Parenthood and work
schedule. According to the survey,
women say wellness is important,
but being a mom makes it harder
to achieve.
Wellness Goals: Eat healthy
meals, take time for exercise.

Create pizzazz for your party with paintedtablescapes


Move over Martha, now we can do it
ourselves. "Pizzazzing," or adding personal
flair to your own table setting is as easy as
... setting the table.
With a little paint and a lot of fun, you
can inspire yourself to create your own
magical, memorable tablescapes for festive
dinners, luncheons and holiday brunches.
Envision your family and friend's faces
when greeted by the unique beauty of a
fabulous hand painted tablecloth and
dishware to compliment that special
occasion. Impress them with your own
style, whether it is urban chic, sophisticated
elegance, or modem retro. Even the most
discerning diners will be in awe of the

through this easy painting process.
"Imagine your table setting as a blank
canvas ready to invite the colors and styles
of your celebration" says Luce Robitaille,
marketing director of P6b6o, a-French art
paint manufacturer. Start with a plain white
table cloth and dishware; decorate them
with your own color palette, style and
panache. A glittery gold holiday design (as
pictured) is particularly adaptable to New
Year's Eve, a wedding or an anniversary
celebration.
