Legality of countywide system called into question


By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com
The county will seek the opinion
of an outside attorney to deter-
mine whether countywide elec-
tions for county commissioners -
T a measure approved by voters
in November 2006 -- violate a 1985 ruling is-
sued by a federal court. The county commis-
sion voted unanimously Jan. 3 to approve the
measure on the recommendation of county at-
torney Hal Airth.
The federal court judgment, entered as a re-
sult of a suit filed by the local NAACP, ruled
that at-large elections violated the Voting
Rights Act of 1965, denying black voters an
equal opportunity to participate in the political
process. The court ordered Suwannee County
to adopt a system of single-member districts,
in which candidates represent one district and


voters cast ballots only for candidates running
in their district.
After a group called A Committee for a Bet-
ter Suwannee County gathered 10 percent of
voters' signatures for a petition endorsing
countywide voting when electing county com-


missioners, such a measure was put on the bal-
lot in 2006. Voters approved the measure al-
most two to one, and voters can once again
cast ballots for any commission candidate they

alcohol and use of a company vehicle during
working hours.
City Administrator Bob Farley said Caban
traveled to Lake City Dec. 31 in a city vehicle
while on city time. Caban reportedly made the
trip to sign papers for a home he is buying.
Farley said after signing the papers, Caban
stopped by the ABC liquor store, where he was
spotted by Councilman Mark Stewart. After Ca-
ban returned to Live Oak City Hall his supervisor,
Roy Rogers, saw him transferring beer to his per-


sonal truck in the parking lot, according to a re-
port by Rogers.
Rogers recommended Caban be suspended 5
1/2 days without pay starting Friday and that his
probation be extended 60 days. Caban's proba-
tionary status would have ended Jan. 2, pending
approval of the city council.
"Having the [company] truck over there is vio-
lating city policy," Farley said, noting that city

crash
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
A Maryland man was
killed in a single-car crash on
1-10 near Live Oak Sunday.
Antoine C. Gordon, of
Bowie, Md., was sleeping in
the back seat of a Ford Escort
when the driver, Carlos M.
Wilkins, of Washington
D.C., fell asleep at the wheel,
according to Florida High-
way Patrol reports.
The front seat passenger,
Cornell Wedge, of Suitland,
Md., was seriously injured.
Wedge told authorities he
tried to wake the driver and
said that was when Wilkins
lost control.
The car left the westbound
lane, overturned and struck
two pine trees, coming to rest
on its right side. Gordon,
who was not wearing a seat
belt, was pronounced dead at
the scene, said FHP.
The accident occurred at
about 5:20 a.m.

EXTENSION UPDATE


Help yourself to a healthy home


By Katherine Allen
County Extension Director
and Family & Consumer
Sciences Agent

Editor's note: Extension
Update normally runs in
Friday editions of the De-
mocrat. However, due to a
production error this install-
ment, by Extension Director
KIatherine Allen, was omit-
ted from the Jan. 4 issue.
Our apologies.
With the start of the New
Year, what better resolution
than to ensure that the occu-
pants of your home have the
safest environment possi-
ble? Research indicates that
people spend approximately
90 percent of their time in-
doors. The Environmental
Protection Agency studies
of human exposure to air
pollutants indicate that in-
door levels of pollutants
may be two to five times
higher than outdoor levels.
, Homes are not built the
same way they were in the
50's with terrazzo flooring
and leaky jalousie windows.
With the energy crisis in the
70's and the proliferation of
air conditioning, building
sciences focused on tight
construction which ensured
that the air we paid to have
cooled and dehumidified
would not escape. The prob-
lem is that without con-


trolled airflow, contaminants
produced inside the struc-
ture would not be released.
To understand, imagine a
balloon as the exterior of
your home. Tie a knot in
the end. Now consider
where the tobacco smoke,
cooking odors, chemical
fumes, moisture, etc. go if
they are produced within the
balloon "home" and cannot
escape. If too little outdoor
air enters a home, pollutants
can accumulate to levels
that may cause health and
comfort problems. Mois-
ture buildup within the
home also contributes to
mold and mildew growth,
which in addition to being
unsightly, can trigger aller-
gies and asthma.
Some of the symptoms
typically include irritation
of the eyes, nose and throat,
headaches, etc. Children are
especially susceptible. The
problem is that there is con-
siderable uncertainty about
what concentrations or peri-
ods of exposure are neces-
sary to produce specific
health effects. All of these
symptoms, however, may
also be caused by other fac-
tors, and are not hecessarily.
due to air quality problems.
If you are concerned with
symptoms you are experi-
encing and think they are
related to your home envi-
ronment, talk with your
doctor or the health depart-
ment. You may also want to
consider a board-certified
allergist or an occupational
medicine specialist to an-
swer your questions.
Since my arrival, I have
received some additional
questions about lead and
radon. In response, the Ex-
tension office in Live Oak


will be offering two free
classes on Thursday, Jan.
24, called Help Yourself to a
Healthy Home. The morn-
ing class runs from 9 a.m.-
12 noon while the evening
class is from 5:30 p.m. to
8:30 p.m. There will also
be a free class on Saturday,
Jan. 26, from 9 a.m. to 12
noon. Each of these classes
will explain lead and radon
testing procedures as well
as ways to prevent or elimi-
nate irritants. There will
also be discussion about
how to prevent mold and
mildew and when to bring
in a professional to repair
damage. Pre-registration
required. Please call the of-
fice to reserve your spot!
386-362-2771.
For more information on
indoor air quality related is-
sues, please contact Kather-
ine at the UF/IFAS Suwan-
nee Co. Extension office at
386-362-2771 or stop by
the office located at 1302
11th St. SW, Live Oak or to
learn more about how to
identify and prevent prob-
lems attend one of the
classes offered on Jan. 24
or 26. A healthy building
and improved indoor envi-
ronment can also lead to
improved comfort and
health. Isn't that one of the
best resolutions you can
make?
All programs and related
activities sponsored for, or
assisted by, the Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences are open to all per-
sons with non-discrimina-
tion with respect to race,
creed, color, religion, age,

Homes are not built the same way they were in the 50's with terrazzo
fleeing anid leaky jalousie windows. With the energy crisis in the 70's
and the proliferation of air conditioning, building sciences focused
on tight construction which ensured that the air we paid to have
cooled and dehumidified would not escape. The problem is that
without controlled airflow, contaminants produced inside the
structure would not be released.

Christmas in full Victorian
flair arrived at Grace Manor
Community Center and
Restaurant. Margaret Woo-
ley led the volunteer effort,
along with the help of San-
dra Grinnell and other vol-
unteers, decking the halls
with garland, ribbon and or-
naments galore.
Grace Manor is located in
the restored historic Thomas
. Dowling House, erected in
1896. This places the home
in the transition from Victo-
rian to Edwardian d6cor
(think "Gone With the
Wind" to "Titanic"). When
you visit, you can choose
from seating in the parlor,
the library or the family
room, each decorated in its
own unique theme. Live in-
strumental music is also of-
fered on Thursday, Friday
and Saturday evenings.
Thank you to Margaret,
Sandra and all the volunteers
for giving the community a
lovely place to visit this hol-
iday season and truly mak-
ing Grace Manor your com-
munity center! Grace Manor,

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: What is oral mucosa?
A: Oral mucosa is the name of the soft, red-
pink tissue that lines in the inside of your
mouth. It has two functions: it protects the
underlying tissue and it receives and
transmits sensory information like heat and
cold to the nervous system. There are three
types of oral mucosa: lining mucosa, which
covers the lips, the inside of the cheeks, the
soft palate and the area under the tongue;
masticatory mucosa, which lines the gums
and the hard palate; and the gustatory
mucosa, which is on top of the tongue.
Oral mucosa has two layers of tissues. The
top layer is called epithelium, which is found
on other parts of the body, like the skin and
the lining of the digestive tract, Beneath the
epithelium is a supporting layer of connective
tissue that contains blood vessels and nerves.
Alveolar mucosa covers the part of the jaw in
which the teeth sit, and gingival mucosa is the
tissue that covers the roots of the teeth.
In a healthy mouth, gingival tissueis tight
against the teeth and protects the area
beneath from invasion by bacteria. If bacteria
and food particles get trapped at the junction
of the gingival and the teeth, gum disease can
lake root. Talk with your dentist about ways to
keep the inside of your mouth fresh and
healthy.

Type 1 Diabetes and Insulin
Type I diabetes, also known as insulin-dependent diabetes, is a
chronic condition involving an inability of the pancreas to produce
adequate amounts of insulin. Insulin is necessary for the conversion
of glucose into energy. Type 1 diabetes typically first appears during
childhood or adolescence, although the condition may occur at any
age and may occur due to genetic factors or certain types of viruses.
In persons affected by type 1 diabetes, the immune system attacks
and destroys pancreatic cells where insulin is produced. Symptoms
of type I diabetes include increased thirst, frequent urination,
extreme hunger, and weight loss.
Persons affected by type 1 diabetes need to regularly and frequently
monitor blood sugar, as well as maintain a healthy weight and a
healthy diet. Insulin injections or use of an insulin pump are
treatment options for persons affected by this condition. lnsulin is
available in many different forms. Lispro (-lumalog) and insulin
apart (Novolog) are rapid-acting forms of insulin. Regular insulin
(Humulin R, Novolin R) is a short-acting form of insulin. Insulin
glargine (Lantus) is a long-acting form of insulin. I'raiiilintide
(Symlin) is another medication that may be prescribed to stabilize
the sharp increase in blood sugar that occurs after meals. 416695-F

I hope you all had a very
'Merry Christmas and are
now having the start of a
Happy New Year. The
Wellborn Neighborhood
Watch and the Wellborn
Community Association
finished off 2007 with suc-
cessful Christmas parties.
The WCA party, which is
primarily for Wellborn-area
children, was a huge suc-
cess even more so than we
S had planned. Scheduled to
start at 7 pm, we had people
lined up at 6. Once we
opened the doors at 6:30, it
was nonstop. We were wor-
ried that we would not have
enough stockings for the

for everyone. But it was as
with the miracle of the
loaves and fishes: the last
Christmas stocking was
given to the last 10-year-old
in line, and we had five
cookies and a cup of punch


left as the last guests left the
building. As fast as the
cookies were eaten, they
seemed to be miraculously
replenished (helped by
more of our members arriv-
ing with their donations).
Many other toys and gifts
were given to the children
by way of drawings, and the
cash raffle ticket winners
were drawn as well. We had
over 80 children with ap-
proximately 200 in total at-
tending. A big thank you
goes out to all of those who
helped with gift purchases.
Wellborn Neighborhood
Watch will have a benefit
fish fry on Jan. 11, from 3 to
7 p.m., at the Blake Lowe
Community Center for
Andy Padgett who suffered
life-threatening injuries re-
cently in an auto accident.
Dinners are $6.00; eat in or
take out. Cakes will also be
available for sale. Please
attend if you can.
In January, Wellborn will
start preparation of the 2008
Blueberry Festival. We
hope to have a bigger and
better festival this year with
improvements on the coun-
try store and parade, more
vendors, and as always, our
excellent entertainment.
Did you know that in
1917 Wellborn had a three-
quarter-mile length of
South Railroad Street paved
with brick? It was the main
east-west road through
town at that time. In 1927, a
new state road (10) was
paved through town. (Facts
from Wellborn, Florida, My
Home Town a History of
Wellborn, Florida.) Our
brick road still stands today
and is used on a daily basis.
We want to make sure that
this brick road is preserved
and maintained never to
be paved over! There is
more to know of the brick


road. One
of our fu-
ture articles
will be
dedicated
to this sub-
ject as well
as other
landmarks
and histori-
cal facts
concerning
Wellborn.
In wrap-
ping up my
ramblings
for the day, I would like to
encourage all Wellborn res-
idents in two subjects dear


to our hearts.
One is to vote
on Jan. 29. Are
you as fed up
with the dismal
turnouts as I?
Do you com-
plain about po-
litical and
community
matters? Do
you vote? If
you do not
vote, then why
complain?
This is our op-
portunity to be heard. Let
Wellborn have a 100 per-
cent voter turnout!


Subject number two is the
trash on our Suwannee
County roads and streets.
How many of us have com-
plained to our commission-
ers about this problem? The
commissioners can't follow
vehicles to the turn-off sites
and pick up what falls from
trucks. But we can. When
you see trash on the road,
pull over (safely) and pick
up some or all of it. You
guys that drive pickups,
would it hurt you to pick up
that old tire that's been ly-
ing by the roadside for six
weeks? I know there are
people who throw trash out
the window. We can't do
much to educate those peo-
ple, but maybe when they
drive down the road and see
you picking up their dis-
carded beer cans and trash,


they might at least think
twice before throwing
something out the next
time. When I first moved to
Suwannee County, my
street was terrible with lit-
ter. I cleaned it up. Now I
spend about two hours a
month maintaining it. That's
30 minutes a week. I have
noticed a substantial de-
crease because some of the
people who throw trash out
pass me by and see me pick-
ing up their litter. It does
work!
Let Wellborn be an exam-
ple for Suwannee County.
Let's have a monumental
voter turnout, let's help
clean up our streets, and
let's all attend county com-
mission and school board
meetings to let our Well-
born voices be heard.

"Seek good, not evil, that you may live.
Then the LORD God Almighty will be with
you, just as you say he is. Hate evil, love
good; maintain justice in the courts. Perhaps
the LORD God Almighty will have mercy
on the remnant of Joseph."

Democrat editorial board are

and Robert Bridges, editor.
Our View is formed by that
board.


OUR


Countywide


confusion
The county commission got it right when it
recognized the risks that may arise from imple-
menting the countywide voting plan Suwannee
residents approved in a November 2006 refer-
endum.
The new system sounds simple enough. In-
stead of running for office in single-member
districts, county commission candidates will
now be forced to run countywide. In other
words, every candidate's name will appear on
every ballot, and all registered voters will get a
chance to vote for or against anyone whose
name appears there.
We could debate at some length the merits of
such a system, but first we ask a simpler ques-
tion: Is it legal?
A federal court order from 1985 may indi-
cate it is not. A United States district judge
ruled then that Suwannee's current method of
electing county commissioners a method
much like the one to which we are about to re-
turn had the effect of excluding black resi-
dents ,from the political process. As such, it
wasruled inviolation of the federal Voting
Rights Act and struck down.
That might have been the end of it. But ques-
tions have arisen of late concerning the scope
and viability of the 23-year-old court order.
First, it has been noted, the 1985 injunction
bars only the county commission from em-
ploying an at-large system of voting. Since it
was the people of Suwannee County, not the
commission, who put this new plan into place,
it is argued that the letter, if not the spirit of
the law, has been preserved.
Such reasoning sounds iffy to us. Even a ca-
sual reading of the court's ruling indicates it
was the at-large system itself that was at issue,
not the identity of those who endorsed it.
A second argument, which may or may not
prove more substantial, involves the evolution
of race relations in Suwannee County. It is not-
ed that Charles Blalock, a black man, was
twice elected superintendent of schools here in
recent years (1988 and 1992), and that James
Cooper, another black man, won a school.
board seat in 2006 in a district that is more
than 90 percent white. Therefore, it is rea-
soned, black citizens no longer need federal
protection in the form of single-member dis-
tricts to guarantee them full participation in lo-
cal politics.
That argument may or may not hold water.
The problem is, it's not our decision to make.
It was a federal court that outlawed at-large
voting here, and only a federal court can modi-
fy or repeal that ruling.
To proceed blindly in this matter would be
foolhardy and could prove costly. Supervisor
of Elections Glenda Williams estimates it will
cost about $25,000 to stage this November's
elections. If a court later overturns the results,
we'd have to stage them all over again (at least
in part).
That's one reason the county commission
saw fit Thursday to authorize hiring an outside
attorney, a civil rights specialist, to offer guid-
ance in the matter. It was a good first step.
OUR VIEW appears in Wednesday editions
of the Democrat.

LETTER TO THE

EDITOR


Dear Editor:
I would like to thank the person who turned in a
wheelchair and wallet found in the parking lot at
the Wal-Mart Shopping Center on Dec. 20, 2007.
After finishing our shopping my daughter forgot
to load my lightweight chair. I didn't realize it un-
til a few hours later when I reached for my wallet
and asked my daughter to retrieve it from the
wheelchair. After calling several stores and being
told no one had turned in the items, I called the
Sheriffs Office, it was at that time they informed
me they had a deputy looking for me and that a
woman had turned in the chair and wallet to the
UPS store.
I would also like to thank the Sheriffs Office for
their quick response to what looked like an ab-
duction, and to apologize for any worry that I
caused.


Thank you,
G. Williams

Altercation at


convenience store


leads to arrest


From Live Oak Police
Dept. reports
Christopher Alan Branham,
25, of 10570 128th St., Live
Oak, for was arrested Jan. 1 for
battery on a law enforcement
officer following an investiga-
tion into a fight at the Jiffy
Store at 307 N. Ohio Ave. in
Live Oak.
The fight apparently started
when Branham walked into the
store and saw off duty state
correctional officer William
Parker. Parker, who had just
gotten off work, stopped at the
store on his way home. Bran-
ham was standing in the check-
out line behind Parker and
made a comment to him, ac-
cording to police reports.
When Branham saw that he
was being ignored, Branham
allegedly uttered a slur toward
Parker. When Parker continued
to ignore Branham, Branham
reportedly pushed him against
a cooler in the store.
During the investigation,


Branham told
the officers
that he had
recently been
released from
the Hamilton.
Correctional
Facility. Branham
Parker, who
is employed at the same prison,
said he had never seen Bran-
ham before. According to De-
partment of Corrections
records, Branham was incarcer-
ated in Columbia Correctional
Institution in Lake City, and
was released on Feb. 26, 2007.
Branham's girlfriend, Alicia
Lynn Campbell, 23, PO Box
1688, Glen St. Mary, was also
arrested after she reportedly be-
came disruptive at the scene.
Officer Kyle Kirby and Sgt.
Larry Rogers of the Live Oak
Police Department conducted
the investigation.
Parker received minor in-
juries which required no med-
ical attention.

workers may not employ city ve-
hicles for personal use.
Farley said this includes going
to lunch or even taking a break,
unless an employee is already
out on city business. A different
set of rules applies to those on
call.
City policy prohibits posses-
sion of alcoholic beverages while
on duty, on city property or while
operating or riding in or on city
equipment. Farley and Mayor
Sonny Nobles said the city
would continue to investigate the
incident.
Farley said this is Caban's first
offense of this kind, and added
he has given Caban authority to


use the vehicle off hours only un-
der "extenuating circumstances."
Farley said that only he has the
authority to terminate non at-will
employees, such as Caban. How-
ever, City Attorney David
Robertson has said the council
also has the authority to fire non
at-will employees if they are still
on probation.
Stewart said he doesn't be-
lieve that council members he
should be involved in firing a
non at-will employee. That
should be left up to the city ad-
ministrator, he said.
Stewart said despite the inci-
dent, he still supports Caban.
"He used bad judgment, but I
think he's still doing his job,"
Stewart said.


Voting

wish, not just those residing in their districts.
Airth's concern was that the measure might be
ruled in violation of the 1985 court order, and that
the November 2008 election, in which three county
commission seats will be filled, could be ruled in-
valid.
"Any action the board would take with those
commissioners would be invalid" in that case, Airth
said.
Airth said a special attorney might be able to "de-
termine whether that injunction is still binding on
the board and exactly what the order means today
rather than 22 years ago."
Commissioners Ivie Fowler and Jesse Caruthers
were both concerned about how long it would take
to determine the legality of the election, since they
are both up for re-election in November.
Airth said he had been having the matter re-
searched on an emergency basis in hopes to have an
answer before the qualifying period closes in July.
"We need to know long before then," Caruthers
said.
Both commissioners said additional planning is
required to run on a countywide basis.
"When you start going out there and buying
signs, do I need to buy 250 or 1,200?" Fowler said.
"These are preparations that have to be made way
before you get to that stage."
Commissioner Randy Hatch, who is also up for re-
election, said his concern is the expense it would take
to hold a special election if the November election is
invalidated.
Commission Chairman Doug Udell said he is not
concerned with the issue until the election has taken
place.
"I assure you that as soon as the election is over if
this has not changed back to single-member districts,
there will be a concerted effort to change it back to
single-member districts," Udell said.
Wendell Hill, who helped gather petitions to get
countywide voting on the 2006 ballot, was dis-
pleased with the commission's decision. Contacted at
his home Monday, Hill said he didn't understand why
at-large elections might be illegal.
"We went by the law and got the petitions signed,"
he said.
"I think it's wrong," he added, pointing that the
measure was approved by a majority vote.
Hill said race "ain't got a thing in the world to do
with it."
"It's all about representation," Hill said, adding he
thinks the commissioners should represent all people
in the county.
Supervisor of Elections Glenda Williams said un-
der a countywide voting system, though voters can to
choose from among all candidates, commissioners
will still be assigned to a district.
In the November 2006 election, 7,018 voted yesin"'
favor of countywide elections and 3,550 voted n.io,,-"

One time a youngster met Bracewell at the mailbox
and dragged her by the hand into his home. "I want
you to meet my baby sister," he told her. On another
day, a child introduced her to a baby calf.


MEET YOUR


The woman who wouldn't give up


By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com

SThough her degree is
in Elementary Edu-
cation, Bettye
Bracewell might be
qualified to teach a
lesson in persistence.
Bracewell, 65, finished her bache-
lor's degree 10 years ago, though she
decided not to complete her intern-
ship or take the state teacher's
exam.
"I just wanted a degree," Bracewell,
of McAlpin, said, adding she braved
just one class a year.
She began taking classes when her
daughters Tammy and Tina were in
elementary school and didn't finish
until they were out of college.
In her quest to get a job with the
U.S. Postal Service, Bracewell had to
fight her way through the exam.
"I took the postal exam. I took the
postal exam. And I took the postal
exam. It seemed like it took forever,"
she said.
Bracewell never gave up and final-
ly passed the test after the fourth or
fifth try.
Bracewell said she was "just ecsta-
tic" when she learned she had!
passed. .
Bracewell was thankful for a good
job because her husband, Johmiy
Mack ("J.M.") became disabled at
age 36 due to a heart condition. She
was forced to become the breadwin-


She worked as a rural mail carrier
with the local post office for almost
25 years. She retired in 2004.
Bracewell has pleasant memories
of her job.
"I never had a boring day on the
route," she said.
The drive was beautiful and the
people were friendly. One time a
youngster met her at the mailbox
and dragged her by the hand into
his home.
"I want you to meet my baby sis-
ter," he told her.
On another day, a child introduced
her to a baby calf. And at times resi-
dents on the route would bake her
cakes and bread. One time when
dropping off the mail'she found a
loaf of banana nut bread in the
box waiting for her.
"It was still warm," she re-
members, noting the resi-
dent had good timing
when placing it there.
"The customers loved
her and employees loved
her," said Steve Tehan,
postmaster for the Live
Oak post office. "We en-
joyed having her around."
One day coming home
from church, Bracewell's
girls, in elementary school
at the time, were review-
ing her report card.
"I thought college was
hard," she remembers one
of her daughters saying.
Bracewell said, "It is
hard." Her daughter re-
sponded, "Your grades are
better than ours."
The Bracewells' daugh-
ter Tammy Floyd is a middle school
EE. coach in Knoxville, Tenn.

Give coon huntin' a try


Some of my huntin' buddies
and me really live for being out
in a wet patch of woods in the
middle of a cool night and
hearing the not-so-distant sounds
of our Walker hounds when they
open up on a hot coon trail.
There's just something about
those hounds' voices that sound
both pleasing and eerie at the
same time.
We like to brag about whose
dog actually struck the trail first
and whose got to the right tree
first. Boy, you can sure tell the
difference when the dogs are just


trailing a coon and when they've
got 'em treed. Their barking
goes from longer, less frequent
howls to just down right
choppin' it down, baying as loud
as they can, as quick as they can,
with every breath that's in 'em.
You can really sense the urgency
in their voices when they're on
the tree.
That's when it's time to turn
on the flashlights and start
making your way through the
swamps toward that pleasant, oh,
too familiar sound in the
darkness.


If you'd like to try coon
huntin', besides having a good
coon dog, you'll need a Florida
hunting license. Residents pay
just $17 for the year.
Nonresidents have the choice of
paying $46.50 for a 10-day
license or $151.50 for 12
months.
If you're thinking about
hunting on one of Florida's many
wildlife management areas
(WMAs), you also must
purchase a management area

COMMENTARY


Remember

when


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels

In the good old days
the NFL had 12 teams,
the Eastern Conference
with powers New York
and Cleveland, doormats
Pittsburgh and
Washington, and also-
rans Philadelphia and St.
Louis. The Western
Conference had powers
Baltimore (the Colts),
Green Bay, doormats
Detroit and Los Angeles,
and also-rans San
Francisco and Chicago.
There was one title game
and it was the best record
in the east against the
best of the west. No
playoffs, no wild cards,
no Super Bowls. In 1961
they started the runner-up
bowl.
They also started the
American Football
League in 1960. The East
had Buffalo, New York
(the Titans), Boston (now
New England), and
Houston Oilers. The West
had Denver, Oakland,
Dallas (the Texans who
moved to K.C. to become
the Chiefs) and the Los
Angeles Chargers, who
moved down the road to
San Diego. Every place
the AFL looked to go the
NFL would beat them to
the punch: Before you
knew it there were
Cowboys in Dallas,
Vikings in Minnesota,
Falcons in Atlanta and
Saints in New Orleans.
The AFL was here to
stay and paid bunches of
money to Joe Namath,
John Huarte, Billy
Cannon, Matt Snell and
Pete Gogolak. NFL cast-
offs like Don Maynard,
George Blanda and
Lenny Dawson became
stars and Lance Alworth,
Cookie Gilchrist and
Buck Buchanan made for
good Sunday afternoon
football watching. In
1967 we got the first
Super Bowl.
No playoffs upon
playoffs, no wildcards,
just the NFL champs
versus the AFL champs.
The Green Bay Packers
went through Oakland
and Kansas City like
Florida through Montana
State. Then came Super
Bowl III and the New

permit for $26.50. But
find out which WMAs
allow coon huntin' by
reading the brochure on
each area you're thinking
about trying. These WMA
brochures are at your local
tax collector's office or
online at
MyFWC.com/hunting.
All licenses and permits
are available at county tax
collectors' offices, any
retail outlet that sells
hunting and fishing
supplies, online at
www.wildlifelicense.com
or call toll-free 1-888-
HUNT-FLORIDA.
Coon huntin' with dogs
at night, while using a
flashlight or headlamp, is
allowed. On private
property, when in
possession of written
landowner permission, you
may hunt raccoons year-
round, but most of us
prefer to hunt 'em during
the colder months so as not
to get our dogs snakebit or
attacked by gators.
You're only allowed to
harvest raccoons, and
opossums for that matter,
using .22-caliber firearms
(other than .22-magnums)
or single-shot .410-gauge
shotguns with shot no
larger than No. 6. During
the hunt, all firearms must
remain unloaded except
immediately prior to
shooting treed or bayed
raccoons or opossums.
There are no daily or
seasonal bag limits on how
many raccoons or
opossums you may harvest,
and hides and skins of
these furbearers may be
possessed in any number,
at any time.
All dogs used in


pursuing raccoons or
opossums are required to
wear collars or tags which
identify dog owners and
their addresses. Hunting
either furbearer by
"shining" or using lights
from moving vehicles,
boats or animals is against
the law. It's also illegal to
transport wild-trapped live
raccoons within, into or
from Florida.
Individuals with a
trapping license ($26.50)
also may take raccoons and
opossums by means of
live-trapping or the use of
snares, but these traps must
be checked at least every
24 hours. Using steel or
leg-hold traps is
prohibited.
Only those persons with
a trapping license are
authorized to sell the hides
and meat of these
'furbearers. In order to buy
and sell this meat for
commercial purposes,
you're required to possess
a dealer's license, which
you can get from the
Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services' Division of Food
Safety by calling 850-488-
0295.
So if you're looking for
a new and exciting huntin'
opportunity, get ahold of a
good coon dog, grab your
.22, a flashlight and a pair
of hip waders and take to
the swamps!
Here's wishing you a
happy New Year and good
huntin'. If you can,
introduce someone new to
a different kind of hunting
pass the tradition down.
As always, have fun, hunt
safely and ethically, and
we'll see you in the woods!

NFCC NEWS


McCauley "decodes" literature

at English conference


Dr. Barbara Mc-
Cauley, English
professor at North
Florida Communi-
ty College, was a
guest presenter at
the Florida Col-
lege English Asso-
ciation Nov. 8 and
9 in Ft. Pierce.
McCauley's pre-
sentation, entitled,
"Decoding Litera- Dr. Barbara
ture," proposed to
English faculty that it is impor-
tant for college students to under-
stand how instructors interpret
literature in the classroom by in-
corporating text, knowledge of or
research on the background and
individual priorities and values.
McCauley said, "It was a great
conference and I had the chance
to connect with colleagues from
all over the state." The confer-


Retiring employees honored


ence brings to-
gether English in-
structors from
across the higher
education spec-
trum, including
two and four-year
colleges.
"I am enor-
mously interested
in the idea of link-
ing the environ-
McCauley ment to English
course presenta-
tions, especially considering that
we live and work in Florida
where the environment is so im-
portant to us," she said. One
such session was conducted by
conference organizer, April Van
Camp, who is documenting oral'
history for and with the Seminole
Indians who live on the shores of
Lake Okeechobee.
McCauley resides in Madison.


Members of the North Florida Communi-
ty College (NFCC) family paid tribute to
three retiring employees during the end-of-
term holiday luncheon held in the NFCC
Student Center, Dec. 14, 2007. Barry Barn-
hart and Carolyn Blount are retiring this
month and Sandra Ebberson retires Febru-
ary, 2008. President.Morris G. Steen Jr. pre-
sented engraved plaques, along with albums
of congratulatory notes and letters to each.
Barnhart is retiring after 38 years, Ebber-
son after 35 years and Blount six years.
Barnhart has been a member of the NFCC
faculty since August, 1969. He has taught
biology, zoology, botany and environmental
studies. He holds an associate degree from
Orlando Junior College, a bachelor's degree
and master's degree from Florida State Uni-
versity.
During his tenure, he was president of the
faculty senate, science department chair and
a member of numerous college committees.
Since 1984, he has been the sponsor of the
student organization: S.O.A.R. Save Our
Animal Resources.
Barnhart initiated the popular NFCC
Ecology Day for local elementary students
in 1991. Since then thousands of youngsters
have come to know NFCC and learn about
the natural sciences.
Barnhart was instrumental in developing
the Ladell brothers Outdoor Environmental
Center on the NFCC campus. In 1976, he
helped NFJC acquire land for the center and
directed work projects in setting up the in-
novative project. The center serves as an
outdoor environmental classroom for K-12
and college students, a walking tour site for
campus and community visitors and has
been designated part of the Florida Birding
Trail.
In 2002, Barnhart was one of three final-
ists for Professor of the Year of the Florida
Association of Community Colleges. He
and his wife, Tomye, reside in Madison.
Sandra Ebberson has been a member of
the NFCC family since March, 1973. A
1965 graduate of NFJC, she holds a bache-
lor's degree in industrial/technical education
. from the University of South Florida. She is
also a certified Florida Department of Law
Enforcement instructor.


Ebberson is best known for her 27-year
association with the Law Enforcement -
Criminal Justice Public Safety Acade-
my where she has taught law en-
forcement and corrections classes
since 1969 and coordinated criminal
justice education. She also has been
a GED test examiner for 20 years.
Over the years, she has became
something of a testing guru at
NFCC, conducting the first T.A.B.E.
on campus, field
testing the
first state
exam for
nursing
aides
and con-
ducting
state
testing
for vol-
unteer
firefight-
ers for
the State
Fire Col-
lege.
Active in the Sandra
community, San- Ebberson
dra has been a
member of the Madison County Sheriff's
Reserve, the 3rd Circuit Law Enforcement
Officers' Association and is a long-time di-
rector of the Madison Education Association
Credit Union. Ebberson is the mother of
Ben and Colt, both graduates of NFCC pro-
grams, and grandmother to Seth and Anna.
Carolyn Blount has been a member of the
NFCC family since August, 2001 and in En-
rollment Services the past few years. Prior
td coming to NFCC, she was office manager
and administered human resources for Re-
lief Printing. Before that she was assistant
appraiser in the Madison County Property
Appraiser's office. Carolyn and Buddy
Blount have three children Mike, Eliza-
beth and Miki and several lovely grand-
children. (Miki Richardson is a registered
nursing instructor at NFCC and granddaugh-
ter, Tara is currently a student athlete at
NFCC).

Judges introduce new



Trial Court Administrator


Sondra Lanier William will handle duties for Third Judicial Circuit


Chief Judge E. Vernon Douglas
recently announced the
appointment of Sondra tanier
Williams as the Trial Court
Administrator for the Third
Judicial Circuit, serving
Columbia, Dixie, Hamilton,
Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee
and Taylor counties. Williams, a
native and resident of Taylor
County, was selected by a vote of
the 14 judges in the Circuit.
Williams said, "I'm honored to
have been selected for this
position in my home circuit, and I
am excited to be working with
such dedicated judges and staff."
Court Administration supports
the work of the judiciary through
planning, technology, court
reporting, management of the
courts' master calendar, case
management, budgeting, finance
and accounting, human resources, S
and legal research. Court
administration also helps pro se
litigants move their cases through the
court system, provides mediation'
services, provides foreign language
and sign language interpreters for
court proceedings, and works with
sheriffs and other local officials on
courthouse security issues.
Specialized courts coordinated by
Court Administration staff in the
Third Judicial Circuit include Drug
Court, Mental Health Court and
Truancy Court.

Williams came to this position
from the Florida Network of
Children's Advocacy Centers, where
she held the position of Chief
Executive Officer since 2003. Prior to
that, Williams served as Director of
Florida's Task Force on Children's
Justice, a Senior Court Analyst at the
Office of the State Courts
Administrator at the Florida Supreme
Court, and a Deputy Clerk at the
Leon County Clerk of Courts.


Williams holds a Masters Degree in
Public Administration from Troy
State University.
"I look forward to working with
our judges and staff,-as well as local
leaders in the seven counties of the
Circuit, to ensure that the services we
provide are of the highest quality
possible, that all people have access
to our courts, and that our citizens are
safe when they come into our
courthouses" said Williams.

Overweight? You Could Blame Intestinal Bacteria


Have you made a resolution to drop a few pounds
only to find that no matter what diet you follow, you
don't see much of a change when you get on the scale?
You may be able to blame intestinal bacteria, say
researchers.
There are trillions of bacteria living on the skin, in the
nose, mouth, stomach, and intestines of the human
body. Most of these bacteria are microscopic helpers,
doing the cleaning and breakdown tasks necessary for
healthy living. They digest food particles that people
simply cannot digest on their own.
In recent years, emphasis into the study of intestinal
bacteria has increased. Up until now, the depths of the
digestive tract have gone largely unexplored. Scientists
are now discovering connections between bacteria and
the way food is used and produced for the body. An
offshoot of this research is probiotics.
Probiotics are dietary supplements containing
potentially beneficial bacteria to help with digestion.
Probiotic supplementation is popping up in yogurt and
other food sources. These helpful bacteria are
purported to fend off stomach discomfort and diarrhea.

Too much of a good thing ...
In regard to obesity, researchers have discovered that
some of the bacteria residing in the gastrointestinal
system are just too good at their jobs; call them the
overachievers of the intestines. Research has indicated
that bacteria in the guts of obese mice are better at
extracting energy from food than the gut bacteria in
lean mice. Basically, the obese mice take away more
energy (calories) from their food than the lean mice.
What's more, when the lean mice were injected with


the bacteria from fat mice, they gained weight, too.
When human subjects were introduced, most of the
same conclusions were found. Bacteria called Firmicutes
seem to be the bacteria responsible for high energy
consumption, while Bacteroidetes are the bacteria that
use the energy and burn off excess calories. More
Frimicutes were found in obese individuals. The theory is
the Firmicutes are like a fuel-efficient car, taking more
energy from the fuel (food) and passing it on to the
vehicle (body). While the Bacteroidetes are gas guzzlers,
quickly depleting the fuel stores.
More Firmicutes are present in obese mice and humans.
And in studies, regardless of what the obese test subjects
ate whether low-fat food or high-caloric junk -
Firmicutes simply extracted a higher level of calories.
This means depending upon the bacteria present in the
gut, a person may extract different amounts of calories
from foods. So if a person with more Firmicutes and one
with less ate the same food containing 100 calories in a
serving, the Firmicutes-rich gut may absorb more calories
than the Bacteroidetes-rich gut. A difference of even 10 to
20 calories a day could add up to significant weight
differences.

Not a free for all
This research doesn't indicate that a person should go to
extremes with consuming high-fat foods and blame
weight gain simply on microbiotics. These bacteria are
just one factor into the reasons why some people seems to
process food differently than others. A balanced.diet
exercise are still the best means to keeping a heal hy "
weight.
