truck then flipped, ejecting Sheffield,
who was not wearing a seat belt, said
FHP. The truck came to rest amidst
brush and small trees, Sheffield lying
beneath it.
Sheffield was taken to Shands Live

Gov. Charlie Crist recently an-
nounced the Florida Discount Drug
Card, a program providing con-
sumers a savings on prescription
drugs.
Those 60 years of age or older
qualify if they don't have prescription
drug coverage or if they are in the
Medicare prescription drug coverage
gap. Those under age 60 qualify if
they don't have prescription drug
coverage and meet the following fi-
nancial criteria: an individual can
earn up to $30,636, a family of two
up to $41,076 and a family of four
up to $61,956.
Customers pay the lesser amount if


a pharmacy's price is
lower than the dis-
count drug price or if
the customer qualifies
for another discount
that costs less.
In Florida more than
Crist 3,000 pharmacies par-
ticipate in the program
and locally pharmacies at Wal-Mart,
Cheek & Scott, Winn Dixie, Wal-
greens and CVS participate.

Attention people with Medicare


Are any of these


on your New Year's

resolutions list?


On behalf of American Legion o
Post 107, Live Oak, I am writing to oeE
say "thank you" to the citizens of
the area who supported the recent Andrew~
fund drive for the annual Boys State
campaign. This year the Legion
members voted to raise funds toGary i
send the two delegates to
Tallahassee in June by conducting a Kenneth I
drawing for two United States
Savings Bonds of $500 and $100
each. The goal was to raise $600 for Kevin W
the expenses and registration fees of
the delegates. Members were given
tickets to sell prior to the final
drawing at Christmas on the Square
on Dec. 1. Donations were also
accepted at the American Legion
booth throughout the day. At 4 p.m.,
the winning tickets were drw;n by Christopl
Mildred Parnell on the main stage.
World War II veteran John Bero
received the $500 bond for his
niece, and Vietnam veteran Mike
McGoldrick received the $100 bond,
which he donated to the post. The total
goal amount of $600 was surpassed
nearly twice over.
Special thanks to the generous donors,
Hal Airth, attorney at law, Gary Brown,
assistant state's attorney, Ryan J. Peters,
attorney at law and Richard Lees Sr.,
who purchased over $100 worth of
tickets by himself.

Also, Legion members handed out more than
1,200 American flags and lapel flag pins during
Christmas on the Square to show support for out
troops. We enjoyed the experience and look
forward to next year.
Finally, we say "thank you" to the Suwannee

nee Democrat editorial
board are Myra C. Re-
gan, publisher, and

Our View is formed by
that board.


Want to vent?

Our hotline

is open 24/7.

Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak
your mind! How do you do that? By calling
the Suwannee Democrat Rant and Rave hot-
line! The hotline never closes and is your way
to let it out.

A year ago you could stand on the banks
of the Suwannee River in Fort Union and
hear the birds chirp. Now, from sunup to
sundown, all you hear is the never-ending
roar and drone of motorcycles without muf-
flers racing. Is this county insane? They've
taken our best resource and allowed a few
greedy individuals to destroy it for all.
They've taken the Florida Wilderness Trail, a
$10 million investment, and sucked the
serenity value out of it. There's a reason the'
wildNess trail wasn't built along an inter-.
state. They've taken one of the county's old-
est neighborhoods, with two of the oldest
churches, and made it uninhabitable. No
amount of sealing doors and windows will
keep out the incessant vibrations from the
track. On some days over 200 gargantuan.
vehicles, some as long as 70 feet, roar down
the tiny graded twisting road with their cargo
of dirt bikes, literally forcing residents off
the roads. Track attendees have threatened
and spit on residents when the residents
couldn't get far enough off the roads for
them, and they've dumped raw sewage from
their motor homes in our road. And all this
happened without neighbors being allowed
input, because the zoning sign that was sup-
posed to notify us of the zoning hearing was
posted with the wrong date those few
neighbors who saw it were preparing for a
March meeting, like the sign stated, when
the hearing was in fact held in February.

This call is in regard to your article on
Robert Erskine's travel trailer he lives in
since his mobile home burned. Do the peo-
ple of Suwannee County care for anybody?
There must be a lot of well-to-do people in
this county who live in all these large, ex-
pensive homes I always drive by. How about
getting this man a used mobile home and
hooking everything up for him, no cost? He's.
80 years old; we're all going to get there.
Does anybody in the county ever help their
fellow human being? I think not, not in
Suwannee County.
0 0.1
About all the recent repairs on the railroad
crossings, the one that needs it the most is
the one at Conner and Houston. That has got
to be one of the most used railroad crossings
in town.
[3. ]
Could you please tell me when the red
light at 90 East and 49 is going to be active?
It has been a blinking caution light for six
months to a year now. When is the light go-
ing to be an active red light?

I see the same flags on Helvenston Street
are still hanging by one end, pointing to the
ground. These people just don't care. Can't
the VFW or the American Legion or the col-
or guard or somebody give these people a
ticket?

Callers to 208-8314 may express their
thoughts, good or bad, 24/7 about communi-
ty issues and politics, but not about private
individuals or businesses. If you prefer, you
may e-mail your comments to

COMMENTARY


I must admire fruitcake durability


I got an e-mail this
week that said the
world is divided into
two groups, those who
like fruitcake and those.
who don't. I always
thought it was divided
into those who pick '
their noses and those Dwain Walden
who lie about it.
So I guess everything
that can produce diametrically opposed
opinions can be said to separate the
world. The key is to not go to war over
them.
Anyway, about this time every year, I
besmerk the fruitcake just a little bit kind
of like I do Bigfoot and space aliens, ex-
cept that I know fruitcakes exist. I don't
fear class-action lawsuits because fruit-
cake is generic and as for Bigfoot and
space aliens, well they would have to
come to court to prove that I had slan-
dered them.
But at the same time, I have to admire
fruitcake's durability. It's been around a
long time.
There are all sort of recipes for fruit-
cake. People have tried hard to make
them truly flavorful and palatable
through the years.
The best one I've ever tasted involved
some Jack Daniels, although a friend of
mine almost cried'when he heard that
this Tennessee elixir had been poured
into a fruitcake batter. He said it was sac-
rilegious. That was the first time I had
heard Jack Daniels and sacrilegious used
in the same sentence. Of course, this fel-
low thinks that "high church" is one that
uses real wine during communion instead
of grape juice.
And this is the same.friend who said if
you put enough hot sauce, garlic and
onions on road kill, you could make it
taste like venison. That in itself is sort of
an anomaly because people put stuff on
duck and venison tpo make it taste like
something else. I once tasted goose liver
pat6. Road kill was the first thing that
c^ Lto mP~I, W,1, tnyybe .the second
thing.'


It is said that Queen Victoria received
a fruitcake for her birthday one year, and
she put it aside for a year as a sign of re-
straint, moderation and good taste.
Sounds like a good story to me. I'll re-
member that one in case anyone ever of-
fers me kidney pie or eel casserole.
It is the custom in England for unmar-
ried wedding guests to put a slice of
fruitcake under their pillow at night so
they will dream of the person they will
marry.
Again, that sounds like a good story,
given that tossing it out the window
might hurt someone's feelings. Of course
I can't imagine putting kidney pie or eel
casserole under my pillow. I already have
a problem with weird dreams. The other
night, I dreamed I drove my piano down-
town. It was running a little rough and a
fellow told me it needed tuning.
I read once where a fellow found a
fruitcake in the attic of a house he
bought. I'm just guessing that the fellow
who owned the house before him told his


mother-in-law how good it was and that
he ate the whole darn thing. And when
Moses handed down the Ten Command-
ments, I'm pretty sure he would have put
an asterisk about the lying part if fruit-
cake had been around back then.
In 18th Century England, there were
laws restricting the use of fruitcake to
Christmas, Easter, weddings, christenings
and funerals. I think they were onto
something way back then, but then
democracy happened.
I think if I was going to write a chil-
dren's book, I would write, "The Loneli-
est Fruitcake." And no, it would have
nothing to do with a congressman on C-
Span addressing an empty House late at
night. And I say that with all due respect
to the conventional fruitcake. I've never
known a real fruitcake to mislead any-
one. It is what it is, whatever it is.

you have a form of "job lock" where
people are reluctant to go out and start a
new business for fear of losing their
health insurance. That is fundamentally
unhealthy for the American. economy.
We want people to go out and start new
enterprises, to have new ideas and take
risks, so that our economy can continue
to create jobs.
We will share these core principles
with policymakers and use them to guide
the development of more specific policy
initiatives. With the presidential cam-
paigns kicking into high gear and health
care at the top of the domestic agenda,
the time is right to set the table for re-
form in 2009. Since small businesses and
their employees make up the largest seg-
ment of the uninsured population, it's
critically important for them to have a
seat at that table. With these principles,
small business is giving policymakers a
significant roadmap to navigate through
the maze of options. Our message?
When the health care system is fixed for
small business, it's fixed for all Ameri-
cans.

County card still available
A few months ago the
Suwannee County Board of
Commissioners and the Na-
tional Association of Coun-
ties (NACo) began offering
a free discount prescription
card, which provides a sav-
ings of about 20 percent on
prescriptions.
The cards are free of
charge regardless of age, in-
come or existing health cov-
erage and are accepted by
most county pharmacies.
County Commissioner
Randy Hatch, who was in-
strumental in getting the pro-
gram implemented in
Suwannee County, said par-
ticipation in the program has
been steadily increasing
since its inception in July.

According to NACo, the
savings to Suwannee County
residents totals about
$13,000 a month. Still,
Hatch said he's pleased that
local residents n6w have
even more options.
"I welcome anything that
saves our constituents mon-
ey and makes prescription
drugs more affordable," he
said.
Walgreens Pharmacy
Manager Rebecca Sapp said
in some cases consumers
might receive a 50-75 per-
cent discount with the coun-
ty card.
Cards are still available
and can be picked up
through several local doc-
tors' offices and pharmacies.

Many little girls dream about
being Miss America, but only a
few actually have the chance to
compete in the annual pageant.
But this year hometown girl Kylie
Williams, daughter of Charles and
Barbara Williams of Jasper, will
represent the state as Miss Florida
in the Miss America pageant on
Jan. 26 in Las Vegas.
More than 12,000 young
women participate in local and
state events each year, but only 52
national finalists (including final-
ists from the Virgin Islands and
Washington, DC) can compete for
the title of Miss America. This
year the young ladies were put to
the test before the pageant when
The Learning Channel (TLC)
gave Miss America a makeover in
their new reality series, "Miss
America: Reality Check."
"The Miss America of today is
more than a pretty face," said
Brant Pinvidic, Senior vice-presi-
dent of programming for TLC.
'These are remarkable women
who have made great contribu-
tions to their communities. We
want to give America the chance
to get to know these ladies and
follow their journey as they strive
to obtain the Miss America title."
The renewed competition will
redefine what it takes to be Miss
America an "it girl" who can
connect with today's modem
woman. All the contestants will
live under one roof and participate
in events and challenges designed
to revolutionize their looks and at-
titudes. They will learn the latest
trends and how to represent them-
selves as role models in today's
world.
The four-part series will air on
TLC at 10 p.m. on lridays, begin-
ining Jan. 4, with Michael Urie
from ABC's "Ugly Betty" as host.
At the end of each show, an advi-
sory board comprised of celebrity
stylist Jeanie Mae, US Weekly Ed-
itor Dina Sansing, and celebrity
photographer Marlk Liddell will
critique the contestants based on


keovers

their reactions to the changes.
Special guests will also share
their expertise with the contes-
tants, including Stacy London and
Clinton Kelly from TLC's hit
show "What Not to Wear," world-:.
renowned make-up artist.
Napoleon Perdis, celebrity hair-
stylist Kim Vo, choreographer
Fred Tallaksen, and fashion expert
Randolph Duke, as well as the
current Miss America Lauren Nel-
son.
In the first episode, the young
ladies arrive at the .mansion in full
pageant regalia dresses, sashes
and crowns. Urie informs them
that people consider Miss Ameri-
ca as outdated but TLC is giving'
Miss America a makeover. First
London and Kelly will look for J
fashion mistakes and give them
advice on how to be an "it girl."
Then the young ladies will test
their teamwork and knowledge of
American geography in a series of
obstacle courses and puzzles. Af-
terwards they will attend a dinner
party to discuss controversial is-
sues. At the end of the show, the
advisory board will rank the con-
testants based on whether they are i
willing to accept-the changes; or if I
they are still resisting the changes.
The Miss America pageant will
air live from the Planet Holly- I
wood Resort and Casino in Las
Vegas, on TLC at 8 p.m. on Satur-
day, Jan. 26.


National


Certification


Two Lafayette County teachers receive National Certification


superintendent -red Ward, bonnie Mccray, and steward HancocK, LHs principal.


Ira Mikell
Special to the Democrat

fter much persistance
and hard-work, two
Lafayette County
teachers achieved their
goal of becoming na-
tionally certified in November.
Lafayette County School Superinten-
dent Fred Ward, as Well as school
board members, congratulated Mar-
garette Milton and Connie McCray for
their outstanding achievement and
presented them each with a beautiful
dish garden.
Milton and McCray are very dedi-
cated to their profession as evidenced
by their love for their students as well
as their willingness to go above and


beyond the call of duty to increase
their knowledge in the field of educa-
tion. Regardless of how challenging
the road to national certification ap-
peared to them, they were determined
to keep their eyes on the prize, and not
give up on their dream.
Milton,currently teaches fourth
grade at Lafayette Elementary and has
been there since 1999. She taught third
grade in 2000. "I was very proud to re-
ceive the certification. It certified many
hours of hard work," Milton said.
According to Milton, the process of
receiving the certification is very rigor-
ous, unlike studying for the Florida
Teacher Certification Exam. Each can-
didate receives a set of criteria that
must be met in order to be nationally
certified. For example, candidates are


required to submit written portfolios
in each subject area of their choosing.
Also, candidates have to watch science
and communities videotaped lessons
that are based on very strict teaching
standards and write commentaries on
what they have learned.
Milton said she has learned a lot
from this experience and plans to use
her new certification in her classroom.
"I will use the strategies developed
during this process to adapt and re-
flect to best meek the academic and so-
cial needs of my students," Milton
said. She also inteIds to mentor new
teachers who are planning to pursue
national certification.
Milton thanks her family, as well as
Lorri Swafford and Jeff Scott for their
support and guidance. According to


Milton, she would not have been able
to achieve her dream without them.
McCray teaches English at Lafayette

'Dogs come up short against



Fort White in ho6


Submitted
The Bulldogs fell short Dec. 10
against the Fort white Indians, 48-47.
With 20 seconds left and trailing by
four, Suwannee's Sam Cherry sank a
three-pointer as time expired. Onlookers
thought Cherry had been fouled, but the
officials thought otherwise.

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels

It is finally over. The
New England Patriots go
undefeated, for now at
least. The Giants gave
them a fight but Eli, being
Eli, threw the crucial
interception that sealed
their fate. Could the NFL
have foufld worse
announcers for their
"trilucast." A trip to the
urologist would have been
more entertaining and
informative than listening
to Gumbel and
Collingsworth, who added
nothing to the biggest
game of the year. Maybe
Chris could leave the
booth for the Senior
Olympics and Gumbel
could ride Pooky into the
sunset.
We don't have to hear
about the '72 Dolphins
again, or do we? Bold
prediction: the Patriots
don't make it to the Super
Bowl. San Diego,
Indianapolis, Pittsburgh,
Tennessee have all been
there before.
How about an all-
Florida Super Bowl,


Tampa Bay versus
Jacksonville? You might
have a better chance of
finding O.J.'s
memorabilia. It was just
so fitting the Dolphins
hired the Big Tuna (Bill
Parcells) to run their show.
Let us hope the Falcons
don't go after Snoop
Dogg. I am so happy
former heavyweight
champion George
Foreman let us know Mike
Vick got to much jail time.
I am sure that boosted grill
sales. Meinke was
probably so happy he
could stop by the
announcers booth for
some small talk.
The bowls are well
underway and I am really
at a loss about bowl
eligibility. There are 129
division 1A football
schools. That's the
Florida's, FSU's,
Oregon's, etc., the big
guys who tried to get into
the rankings and into the
BCS bowl pool. When'you
don't make a bowl named
after a snack food there
are lesser bowls. Bowls
named after, among other
things, fast food
restaurants. There are
approximately 30 post-
season bowls. Some 60
teams or almost half of all
the Big Football schools
go to a bowl. I think this is
great it's like everyone in
Little League getting a
trophy. What I don't
understand is, what you
have to do to be bowl
ineligible. I guess I will
have to ask a Notre Dame
fan.


Near upset ends with

loss for NFCC Men's

Basketball Academy

St. John River Community College may not have ex-
pected the North Florida Community College Men's Bas-
ketball Academy team that went to Palatka Dec. 8, 2007
and almost beat them in a 95-90 game that kept the fans
on their feet all the way.
"A near upset was in the mak-
ings, but it would not be on
Saturday night," said NFCC
Head Basketball Coach
Clyde Alexander of the
match-up between NFCC
Men's Basketball Academy
and St. John. 'The Sentinels
led by three points at the half,
but missed some crucial free
throws at the end of the game," he
said. "It was nip and tuck all the way. We pressed, they
pressed," Alexander stated. ''They won, but we scared
them. Maybe, when they come to Madison (Jan. 10), we
can repay them." Scoring on Page 3B.
The only other home game for the year will be Jan. 10
against St. Johns River in Madison at 5:30 p.m. This is
sure to be a red hot game with some serious basketball be-
ing played.
The public is encouraged and invited to attend these
games. There is no charge, and you're sure to have a great
time cheering on this hard-working team.

- Looking back. Looking forward.


r2(


The month of January is named after the Roman
god, Janus, the god of gates and doorways, who is
usually depicted with two faces, each looking in
opposite directions. Just as every doorway looks
outward and inward, the month of January looks
backward and forward. January is a good time to
take stock of how far we've come during the
previous year and to also look forward to the coming
year. Many of us do this with New Year's resolutions
and superficial commitments to lose weight or save
money in the coming year. But, if we are to have a
successful year, we should do some serious soul-
searching, asking ourselves how God would evaluate
our previous year. How did we do in the really,
important areas of our lives? That is, how did we
treat our families, friends, and co-workers over the
past year? How is our present relationship with God?
Are we a better person than we were twelve months
ago? If we really want to have a better year this year,
why not start by trying to be a better person. As
Gandhi so rightly said, "Be the change you wish to
see in the world." And to do this, it really requires
more than just thinking back on the previous year
and looking forward to the coming one. We need to
have a plan with a direction, and firm resolve as we
cross the threshold into the New Year.

Work out your own salvation with fear and
S trembling;for God is at work in you, both
to will and to work for his good pleasure.
R.S.V. Philippians 2:12-13

On the love of money


Heart Matters
By Angie Land

According to those 'highly
reliable' magazines in the
grocery store checkout line,
money is the number one
relationship killer. On one
hand, I have to agree: family
members quarrel over money
anrd go years without
speaking...friendships end
over loans not given or not
repaid...and marriages
experience huge struggles
when both sides aren't
working together toward a
common financial goal. But
on the other hand, let's be
careful to see the real problem
here: money itself is
amoral...it can be a blessing or
curse, depending on its use. It
is the nature of the person


using the money that
determines its morality.
The Bible speaks often to
the issue of money because it
is a fact of life: we need
money to live. I Timothy 6:7-
10 records some basic truths:
"For we brought nothing
into the world, and we can
take nothing out of it. But if
we have food and clothing,
we will be content with that.
People who want to get rich
fall into temptation and a trap
and into many foolish and
harmful desires that plunge
men into ruin and destruction.
For the love of money is a
root of all kinds of evil..."
I once heard a joke about a
greedy, miser of a man who
hoarded money his entire life
and was bound and
determined to take it with him
when he died. He instructed
his wife to place his wealth in
the casket when he passed
away; he wanted no one else,
including her, to enjoy his
money after he was gone.
After his funeral, friends and
family were curious to know
whether she carried out his
wishes; "Of course," she
replied, "but instead of
handling all that cash, it was
much more convenient to
write him a check!" No way


around it...you can't take it
with you!
The word "content" is
defined as "quietness of mind;
satisfaction." When we are
struggling with financial
issues, isn't "quietness of
mind" the first thing to
go...even more so if our
struggle includes other
people? But notice the last
part of this scripture...it tells
us that the root of the problem
is not money, but the love of
money is where all kinds of
problems begin. Constantly
overextended on your budget?
Continually arguing with your
spouse over money? A
workaholic with no time for
your family? These are just a
few of the "temptations and
traps that plunge men into
ruin." One of the biggest traps
here is to think that more
money will solve these
problems. In Luke 16:10 the
Bible says, "Whoever can be
trusted with very little can
also be trusted with much..."
If the way we are handling the
money we have been trusted
with is damaging the
relationships in our lives,
there is a good chance that
more of it won't help.
In his book "Money
Answers," financial planner


and best selling author Dave
Ramsey agrees with God's
Word that contentment is the
most important financial
concept. He writes,
"Happiness is sold to us as an
event or thing, and
consequently our finances.
have suffered. Fun can be
bought with money, but
happiness cannot."
In other words,
contentment is not found in
gathering more "stuff', but in
our relationship with God and
others. Changing our focus
on how we pursue happiness
will ultimately change our
financial situation and our life
for the better. After all, in the
end it will not be our
checkbook, but our hearts that
matter.
Blessings,

Welcome to 2008: The year of the party animal


By the Rev. James L Snyder
Another great season of parties has
just passed and I was reflecting on
how great it was for all this nonsense
to be over until next year. Don't get
me wrong, I enjoy a party as well as
the next one and the next one and the
next-one. But there is a limit to any-
thing thisgood." '
I echo Tiny Tim's comment, "God
bless us, every one." Now let's get on
with life.
The Gracious Mistress of the Par-
sonage was commenting on how nice
it was that all of the parties were over
and she could relax, for at least a few
months. I hated to break the news to
her so I allowed her to revel in those
thoughts for a few moments. Then, as
gently as possible, I broke the news to
her.
"I hate to tell you this, but the par-
ties have just begun."
She gave me one of those glares
and then demanded, "What do you
mean?"
I explained to her that now begins
the political party season. We can en-
joy this ongoing party the entire year
all the way lip to the election of the
President of the United States. We will
have 24/7 coverage of every political
candidate running for the office.
She was not too happy with my
news.
Right after that crystal ball is
dropped New Year's Eve announcing
a brand-new year somebody shouted,
"Let's get ready to rumble." I know
the rumble is coming, but I do not
think I am ready for it. However, 2008
is the year of the political party ani-
mal. This convergence upon the
American public every four years is
just a little too often.
I think there are two things that we
should really consider in this country.

First, we should seriously think
about a third party. We have had this
two-party system long enough. It is
time for a change. For the third party I
am suggesting a Necktie Party. Of


course, this would be the party to end
all other parties. This may not be a
bad idea.
I have a hard time understanding
why anybody would want to become a
politician. Personally, I am not a
politician but I did lie to my parents
once.
Where do politicians really come
from? Although I do not believe in the
theory of evolution, there are moments
when I am tempted to consider the
origins of politicians. When I was at
the zoo the last time, I mentioned my
idea to the monkeys. They flatly de-
nied any relationship whatsoever with
any politician and went into a frenzied
riot to emphasize the point. Out of my
deep respect for monkey-hood, I will
not bring that topic up again with
them.
In particular, think about the politi-
cian who wants to become the presi-
dent. It will cost over $100 million to.
run for President of the United States.
The job only pays around $200,000 a
year, give or take a bribe or two. I
question the sanity of anybody who
pays that much money to get such a
low paying job. If that is an example
of their fiscal responsibility, it gives
me pause to wonder about their ability
to run our country. If they really want-
ed to help our country they could do-
nate that $100 million to some charity
and then retire from public life alto-
gether.
Evidently these people running for
office don't understand that once
elected, half of the people will hate
you, half of the people will love you,
and half of the people won't remem-
ber who you are. This is according to
a newspaper poll taken last week.
This brings me to my second con-
sideration. We should elect a president
like a Pope is elected. Instead of hav-
ing elections every four years wasting
millions and millions of dollars and
boring the American public to death
with political debates, elect a president
for life. It cannot be any worse than
what we have been doing over the last


hundred years.
Then, once our president is elected,
we would allow him to come out once
a year to give a little speech on what
he has been doing over the past year
locked up in the White House. The
speech must be filled with witty com-
ments about his home life and the new
.hobby he has taken up this year;
working crossword puzzles.
I think Great Britain already does
this with their Gracious Queen. It is
worked for them for hundreds of
years.
Once we work out a solution to the
office of the President, we can then
begin doing similar things to other po-
litical offices.
Once all of this is taken care of, we
can get to the serious work of our
country and solve many of the prob-
lems facing us today. If we did not
have to support a lethargic political
culture, we could channel that money
to important issues of our country fac-
ing us today.
Then, when all this political non-
sense is put to bed, the news media
can get back to the really important is-
sues of life like, what celebrity has
just been arrested and headed for re-
hab. And, what is Britney Spears do-
ing tonight.
For the New Year I am taking as my
verse for the year, "open thy mouth
for the dumb in the cause of all such
as are appointed to destruction. Open
thy mouth, judge righteously, and
plead the cause of the poor and
needy." (Proverbs 31:8 9 KJV).
Maybe this year, less party and a lit-
tle more compassion.

Editor's note: The
following Christmas message
was scheduled for an earlier
publication date, but due to
space limitations is only
appearing now. Our
apologies.
Not many find Him. In
searching, some peer through
microscopes with wondering
eyes at the miniature
universe floating about in a
drop of water or in the
protoplasm of a living cell or
in the sub-atomic particles in
the center of an atom. Some
use telescopes to scan the
heavens, the stars and the
galaxies spread out in infinite
array. But God they cannot
see, although he is very near.
It is clear from what God has
made that he exists. And they
reason that "if he exists, then,
surely I can find him; surely I
can lay hold of him and like
Aladdin's genie in the lamp, I
can extract a blessing or
whatever my heart desires."
This is the God we would
wish to discover. One who is
bent to our will, to do our
bidding, thus making a god
of ourselves and him our
slave.
We should stop to consider
for a moment that such a god
could not b1e God. For God
would not permit our greed,
approve of our selfishness, or
condone our loveless acts,
our lies, our thefts, our pride
and arrogance, our sin. He
would surely not permit
wicked creatures to enslave
him or to have free reign to
overrun his courts, trample
his garden and drag the filth
of their wickedness through
his holy house. We must
consider that the true God
would have the highest
standards and is able to keep
out the riffraff. If we can hide
behind our answering
machines, perhaps he is
smart enough to keep angry,
solicitous, hateful and
murderous people from
disturbing his tranquility and
away from his presence.
Perhaps he is able to sort out
who may and who may not
enter his house of beauty,


holiness and glory. Perhaps
he has barred his door to our
*reason. Perhaps he has
designed a door, a narrow
door, through which many
will enter but the majority
will refuse. And without the
proper key, no man can find
all the good things God has
in store for him. Perhaps he
has a way to offer the key to
all, yet most prefer to live for
themselves and not to enter
by the narrow door.
I tell you now, the key is
faith and Jesus Christ is the
narrow door. There is your
true God, hidden in plain
sight. Lying in a manger bed
in Bethlehem. Hanging on a
Roman cross in Jerusalem.
Walking away from his
tomb. Sitting on the throne at
the right hand of God, the
Father. So you see, God can
be found through His Son,
Jesus Christ. Our wickedness
is pardoned through faith in
the Savior's sacrificial death
on our behalf. Trust me on
this: the Word of God
promises that if we ask him,
Jesus will forgive our sin,
remove our guilt, take away
our shame, and cover us with
his righteousness. Then, and
only then, are we fit to enter
his courts and sing his praise.
This is Christmas. Why
should I not tell you of God's
greatest gift, his Only
Begotten Son, Jesus Christ?
Why should you be poking
around in the dark, looking
for God but never finding
him? Why should you die in
your sins, alone and
separated forever from your
Lord and Savior? Put it to
the test. Call on his saving
name. Receive the gift of
forgiveness and eternal life.
Celebrate his holy birth and
for the sake of your eternal
soul, read your Bible and
come to church. It is God's
house. All repentant sinners
are welcome. Sunday
morning services are at
10:30am. Wednesday
evening services are at 7:30
p.m. Christmas Eve services
are at 7:30pm.
We wish you a blessed
Christmas, from Pastor Karl
Stewart and the members of
Grace Lutheran Church.

FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute

scientist is Biologist of the Year


The Southeastern Association of Fish
and Wildlife Agencies (SEAFWA)
recognizes Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's (FWC)
Fish and Wildlife Research Institute
(FWRI) scientist Wesley Porak as
Fisheries Biologist of the Year.
At this year's annual meeting,
SEAFWA honored Porak, an FWC
research scientist working at the FWRI
Eustis Fisheries Research Laboratory,
for his contributions to fisheries
conservation.
"This award is particularly
prestigious for a conservation agency


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission has
proposed several amendments to
management rules for Florida's lobster
fishery. Commissioners also
considered a wide range of other
lobster management issues that will
require further review.
Proposed rule changes would extend
a moratorium on reducing traps in the
lobster fishery for an additional
year, allow two commercial I
lobster license holders to fish on
the same vessel, reduce the time trap
certificates can remain unused, and
protect egg-bearing females of
all lobster species
in Florida state
waters.
The FWC
has been
conducting a
comprehensive
evaluation of
the biological,
economic and
social issues
regarding Florida's
lobster fishery since
2004. The Commission
considered recommendations
made by an advisory board of lobster
stakeholders and comments from the
public at numerous public workshops
and online surveys as part of its
analysis of the lobster fishery.
Management of Florida's lobster

recognition from his distinguished
colleagues, and it reflects great credit
on this whole agency," said Ken
Haddad, FWC executive director.
With 25 years of experience, Porak
commits himself to excellence in
largemouth bass research, management
and conservation. Along with
colleagues, he helped develop.
techniques to determine largemouth
bass growth rates, ages, longevity and
survival in Florida water bodies.
In addition to the award presented to
Porak, FWC also won a diversity


fishery is complex. The fishery is
composed of several user. groups,
including commercial trappers and
divers, bully netters and recreational
harvesters. Key management issues
include the number of traps used in the
fishery, season length, the commercial
dive fishery, license fees, allocation of
the fishery among user groups, the
special two-day sport season, and other
related matters.
-A The Commission is
addressing.some of these
S issues with its
proposed rule
changes. However, other
lobster management
considerations, are expected
to take more time to
develop and may
require legislative
I action.
Rules proposed by
the Commission
include extending the
current moratorium on
reducing the number of
traps in the lobster fishery
until July 1, 2009. This will
give the FWC time to work with
lobster user groups to resolve concerns
regarding trap reduction.
Another proposed rule would allow
two different spiny lobster",; ,::,
endorsement holders to pull traps from
the same vessel. This would help make
it easier for new license holders who

Ken Haddad received an award for his
service as past-president of SEAFWA.
SEAFWA is composed of state
agencies responsible for management
and protection of the fish and wildlife
resources from 16 states, Puerto Rico
and the United States Virgin Islands.

wildlife and its aquatic and marine
resources. To learn more about FWRI's

don't own a vessel yet to work their
traps.
Other proposed rules would revert
trap certificates not paid for, back to
the FWC after two years instead of
three and prohibit the harvest of any
egg-bearing females of all lobster
species, which will help ensure the
health of the marine ecosystem.
A final public hearing on these
proposed rule changes will be held
during the Commission's April meeting
in Tallahassee.
The Commission will continue to
review other lobster issues such as the
management of the commercial lobster
dive fishery, including transferability
of commercial dive certificates and
display of commercial endorsement
numbers on fishing and diving gear.
The Commission also will continue
to review several recommendations
from its lobster advisory board and the
public. These recommendations
include removing a trap certificate
surcharge, creating a government-
funded certificate buyback program,
increasing the $2 recreational lobster
permit fee, creating a new permit for
the special two-day sport season in
Monroe County and increasing
penalties for harvesting lobsters from
illegal artificial habitats.
If the Commission decides to take
action on these issues, legislation also
will be needed but probably won't
occur before 2009.


Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) employees were recognized
for their years of service, dedication,
achievements and heroism at the FWC meeting
in Key Largo last month.
Two former Commissioners also accepted
FWC resolutions recognizing their service -
Sandra Kaupe for her five years and David
Meehan for eight years on the Commission.
Dr. C. Tom Rainey of the Wildlife Foundation
of Florida presented the 2007 Louise Ireland
Humphrey Achievement Award to Victor Heller,
assistant executive director of the FWC. The
annual award honors FWC employees for
outstanding service to the agency.
Commissioners also honored Jeffery Bass and
Captain James Koch, fishing guide, for their
heroic efforts during a rescue operation of a
boating accident victim in Key Largo.
Jack Beal of Shikar-Safari Club International
presented the 2007 Shikar-Safari Club
International Officer of the Year Award to FWC
Officer Brad Stanley.
John White, retiring after 30 years of service
from the FWC, also enjoyed a moment in the
spotlight.
'These awards recognize individuals who
have gone above and beyond what their normal
job requires," said FWC Chairman Rodney
Barreto. "They exemplify what it means to
work for the FWC."
The FWC also honored Vic Dunaway, outdoor
writer and founding editor of Florida Sportsman
magazine, for his contributions to fish and
wildlife conservation.
The FWC presents awards during its final
meeting each year.

FAMILY FEATURES

Imagine spending a crisp, clear day at a major
metropolitan zoo and casually taking your time
through each of the exhibits, without any of the
usual crowds. Or, how about sipping a Pinot Noir
at a Napa Valley vineyard and chatting with the
winemakers about their passion for crafting fine wine ...
an experience you're not likely to duplicate during the
busy harvest season.
Whether you are visiting family for a special occasion
or holiday, traveling for business or just booking a special
winter retreat, don't forget to take a little extra time this
season to strategize and think creatively before your trip.
Winter travel can be very rewarding, especially if you are
visiting with far-away family or have the opportunity to
get outside and enjoy a variety of fun winter activities.
Travel this time of year, however, also has the potential
for frustration with potential airport delays and bad
weather.
Be prepared by following a few key tips and tactics
designed to keep you stress-free.


For many winter travelers, external circumstances often
dictate their destination.
For example, business travelers don't have a choice of
where they're going but they can invite their spouse, partner or family and extend the
trip into a weekend mini-vacation. For those travelers who have the freedom to choose, be
resourceful. Narrow down what you hope to achieve on your trip (relax, play golf, shop)
and then determine what type of climate would suit you best. (Do you want to escape
winter's chill or capitalize on its frosty beauty?)
Once you've settled on your destination, it's time to shop around for the best deals on
hotel, airfare and car rentals. You may find the most value for your dollar at an upscale,
mid-priced hotel which doesn't skimp on amenities, and still offers attractive package
deals with extras such as complimentary breakfast and gift cards to local establishments.
A top choice of travelers in recent years has been the Hilton Garden Inn, which offers the
Holiday Breakfast Deal at many of its locations. The deal includes complimentary break-
fast at the hotel's restaurant for up to four people (staying in the same room).


Planning Activities
As with all aspects of travel, research is vital when scheduling your itinerary. Take some
time beforehand to research your destination online. StayHGI.com offers a convenient
database of attractions by city or ZIP code. Simply type in your destination and you'll
be provided with local weather forecasts, as well as a number of choices in local dining,
entertainment, festivals, shopping, sports and
more. Pick up a guidebook to take along on your
trip for useful insider travel tips and to double as n "
great reading material to help pass the time.


Following these simple tips and incorporating a
little extra planning will help get you on your way.


* Do be patient build in extra time whenever possible.
* Don't overbook your days adopt a leisurely pace to make the most of
your trip.
* Do consider the comforts of a hotel over staying with relatives, for a stress-
free visit.
* Do extend business trips into weekend escapes.
" Don't forget your home town iocal getaways can add up to big fun.
" Don't pay too much for lodging --look into mid-priced hotels that feature
special packages that include complimentary breakfast, like the Hilton Garden
Inn Holiday Breakfast Deal,
* Do consider off-season getaways --you'll save money and avoid the crowds.
For more information on the Holiday Breakfast Deal or ideas op inspired winter
getaways, visit StayHGI.com.


When choosing the hotel that's right for you and your family, be sure to take a
look at what amenities they offer, to find the right fit.
* Eating Whether or not you plan to eat meals at your hotel, or on the go,
will influence your choices. However, it's always wise to select a hotel that
offers a complete range of food and beverage offerings, from a full-service
restaurant and lounge, to in-room microwaves and mini fridges, to the 24-hour
Pavilion Pantry* where guests can find healthy snacks, microwaveable meals
and sundries.
* Sleeping Find out what kind of bedding hotels offer to get a good night's
rest. Hilton Garden Inn locations offer crisp white duvets and pillows and the
innovative Garden Sleep System'" that allows guests to adjust the firnmness
and softness of their bed.
* Staying Fit Even though you're traveling, there's no reason to leave your
workout schedule behind. Take advantage of the hotel's fitness center or, if
you'd prefer to work out in the privacy of your own room, check out the Stay
Fit Kit' from the Hilton Garden Inn front desk. It features a yoga mat, strap
and bricks, eight-pound abs ball, three-pound hands weights, a Pilates band
and a resistance rope.
