A big day for Ken Allen


Suwannee High grad, now a NASA technici

is recognized for his work at the space age


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews. corn
November 19 was a big day for
former Live Oak resident Kenneth
Allen. He was awarded the Silver
Snoopy award from the folks at
NASA. Allen, Chief Electronics
Technician for the Kennedy Space
Center at Cape Canaveral, in a
telephone interview, said it was
"an honor to receive such an
esteemed award from NASA."
According to NASA, the Silver
Snoopy best symbolizes the intent
and spirit of the Space Flight
Awareness Program.
Allen was honored with the
award for his lifetime
support of the space
program and his
recognition for
upgrading all
ground camera
imaging
equipment after
the shuttle
Columbia


disaster in 2003.
The recipient can be nominated
for the award by either the
employees' peers, and/or
management, and is awarded to
the recipient by surprise. Allen
was awarded his by astronaut Dr.
Steve Robinson on November 19
at NASA. The award consists of a
Silver Snoopy pin that was flown
during a NASA mission, a
commendation letter (stating the
mission the Silver Snoopy was
flown on), a signed Silver Snoopy
certificate and frame and a
symbol of excellence Snoopy
decal and poster.
He said he wished his mother
could have been there for the
presentation. "He is a good
fellow and the baby in the
family," Allen's mother
Doris Allen, of Live Oak,'
1|' said. "I am very proud of
him and his
II, accomplishments at NASA."
Allen was born in
Suwannee County and
graduated from Suwannee
High. He jokingly talked
about working on the
farm as a kid, and
cropping tobacco


and harvesting watermelons here.
"I remember Suwannee County
to be very rural," he said, "Live
Oak has changed a lot since then."
Allen's sister Susan Farabee
said she remembers him being a
fun loving child. "He was a great
kid and easy to get along with
everybody," she said. She noted
how far he's come at NASA since
he started there. "I am very proud
of the accomplishments he has
made with NASA and throughout
his career," she said.
Allen graduated from Suwannee
High in 1979, he then went on to
attend technical college in Tampa
where he received an associate
degree in computer engineering.
Allen said
that A I ......


representatives from
Ian, many different
companies came to
ncy the school to
interview prospective
employees.
"RCA interviewed
me and asked how I would like to
come work for them tracking
satellites, and I said yeah," he
said. That was 1981, just two
years after graduating high
school. Allen spent the next few
years on different tracking
stations in the Caribbean tracking
satellites and rockets. He has been
at Kennedy Space Center since
1988, having been hired just one
week before the first shuttle
launch. Since then he has worked
every space launch, whether it
was the space shuttle or a rocket
sending satellites up.
Allen and his team of
technicians make sure that all of
NASA's launches are recorded.
They use state-of-the-art camera
equipment, such as high-speed
film, high-speed digital video,
high definition


angles to make sure everything
went well, and to gather data for
future launches.
"We have about 160-170
cameras on ground for each
launch," Allen said.
During an investigation of the
1986 Challenger disaster, Allen's
team's cameras
spotted the dysfunctional 0-
ring that doomed the craft and its
crew of seven.
"We process every camera after
each launch to see if anything
happened," Allen stated, noting
that if anything went wrong such
as foam falling off the spacecraft -
the mission could be jeopardized.
"Science is very important, I
never dreamed I would be
working here, and for so long, and
now we have a new rocket
coming and I will be here for
that," Allen noted.
Allen's team was given over
$39 million to upgrade all of the
lenses and equipment after the
shuttle Columbia disaster on
February 1, 2003.

Eye Care

We are excited to announce we have relocated to 522 S.
Ohio Avenue, Live Oak, FL 32064, the former site of
Suwannee Eye Center. Dr. Stranch has retired. All the
records from Dr. Stranch's practice are still at this
location.
Although we have had many wonderful years at our
former location, this new location is in the center of town
and we feel it is a greater asset to us and our patients. The
only change is the new location. The phone numbers,
doctors and staff will remain the same with the addition
of our eye surgeon Dr. Gregory Snodgrass, M.D.
We look forward to serving the community for many
more years to come at our new location.

Meniere's Disease: Treatment Options
Meniere's disease is a condition that affects our balance and
hearing. Attacks of vertigo characterize this condition, which may be
severe and occur suddenly. Vertigo is a sensation that a person's
surroundings are moving or spinning. Balance and hearing are
disrupted as a result of an increase of fluid pressure in the inner ear.
Meniere's disease is also characterized by ringing in the ear
(tinnitus), pain in the ear, and hearing loss of the affected ear.
Usually only one ear is affected by this condition, although rarely
both ears may be affected: Hearing loss may progressively worsen
over time, while attacks of vertigo actually decrease in frequency.
Meniere's disease may significantly affect a person's quality of life
if 'left untreated. Anti-vertigo medications, such as meclizine
(Antivert) may help to alleviate the sensation of spinning that may
occur with vertigo. Prochlorperazine (Compazine) is may be
prescribed to control associated nausea and vomiting. Serious attacks
may also trigger anxiety, which may be managed with anti-anxiety
medications such as alprazolam (Xanax). A diuretic may be
prescribed to reduce fluid retention, which may help to reduce fluid
pressure in the ear. Maxzide (triamterene and hydrochlorothiazide) is
a combination diuretic medication that is sometimes prescribed.

OUR VIEW

Something's amiss

at City Hall
Something's not right at City Hall, and folks
are beginning to notice.
Here's what we've learned in just the last
week:
Despite a city ordinance which purports to
treat all utilities customers the same, it turns out
that commercial accounts were never subject to
termination for non-payment, while residential
accounts were. Finance Director Jan Parkhurst
told councilmen at a recent meeting that such
had always been her understanding of city poli-
cy. The council, however, never formally ap-
proved Parkhurst's "understanding." What's
worse, only Councilman Mark Stewart had even
heard of it and only then in recent weeks.
Meanwhile, a local merchant has run up a
$13,000 water bill, and the city is still in the
process of collecting.
We learned during the same meeting that City
Administrator Bob Farley spent $33,000 in city
funds last fall on a new SUV, a purchase the
council probably would not have approved -
had they known of it. Three councilmen John
Hale (who brought the matter to light), Bennie
Thomas and Don Boyette made clear the 2007
Tahoe, which came packaged with $7,400 in
options, was too rich for their blood, or for the
city's.
Then there's the story of how the vehicle was
bought to begin with. Farley said he got permis-
sion last September at a'budget workshop to
give his city-issued Crown Victoria to another
municipal employee (whose car had been de-
stroyed in an accident) and buy a new vehicle
for himself. However, only one councilman,
Ken Duce, says he has any recollection of such
a discussion,. No one can say for sure, since
records aren't kept of these informal, non-bind-
ing deliberations.
Hale has brought to light other questionable
City Hall practices as well. It was he who re-
vealed that city fire trucks were used on at least
a dozen occasions in 2006 to assist a private
contractor in completing work on aLive Oak
apartment complex. And it was Hale who
brought to light emergency work done by the
city for Florida Power and Light in March re-
pairs for which the city didn't bill FP&L until
Hale went public with the matter in September.
At a recent council meeting Hale said there's
more to come. Citizens of Live Oak are anxious
to hear it.

FROM OUR READERS.'


Dear Editor:
The article about the Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District implementing mandatory restrictions
on water use was .published both in the Suwannee De-
mocrat and in The Gainesville Sun. Restricting (i.e.,
banning) lawn watering within municipalities from 7.
a.m.-9 p.m. is perplexing. It would have been benefi-
cial had the articles included a discussion of the engi-
neering evaluation report that SRWMD must have used
to arrive at the decision to use this restriction. Engi-
neering reports usually consider numerous alternatives
to solve a problem. What other alternatives were con-
sidered? What considerations were used to arrive at
this being the most environmentally-sound, cost-effec-
tive alternative? Was there any consideration to select
more than one of the alternatives, so there might be
some synergism?
Do municipalities get their water from streams, from
wells, or perhaps from both? What will happen to any
water that is 'saved?' Does this 'saved' water simply
move along the waterway and is therefore 'lost' to those
in the SRWMD?
What amount/percentage of water usage do the mu-
nicipalities use when compared with the total water us-
age of every home and every farm within the district?
An even more pointed question is what amount/per-
centage of water do homeowners within the municipal-
ities use for lawn watering when compared with the to-


ed.Material


d Content

)rcial News Provil


t; ^


ders"


tal water usage of every home and every farm within
the district? Just how much water does the SRWMD
believe will be 'saved' by implementing this restric-
tion?
Under this restriction lawn-waterers can still water
as much as they have been :.. they just can't water dur-
ing certain times! For example, let's say I used to wa-
ter my lawn for, 2 hours on odd days. Now, on odd
days I turn on my sprinklers before I retire, and turn
them off when I awaken 7 to 8 hours later ... which
uses even more water than before the restriction.
How will this reduction (if any) in demand adverse-
ly affect the municipalities' budgets? Will this loss of
income force the municipalities to raise their rates in
order to keep their potable water systems and waste-
water treatment systems financially sound? Or, will
the SRWMD pay the municipalities for their losses out
,of its budget? How will the municipalities pay for en-
forcing this unfunded mandate?
One wonders whether or not a measurable in-
crease/retention in water within SRWMD will actual-
ly occur by implementing this alternative.
Tom Burnett

Dear Editor:
I read the article, on the front page of the Jan. 10,
2008 USA Today newspaper, of the recently passed
Oklahoma state law S-1804. This new state law pre-
sents some very strict guidelines on dealing with the il-
legal immigrants in.that state. As the illegal immigrant
problems in Oklahoma are also present within our
state of Florida, I agree the illegal immigrant work-
force solves some problems for employers looking to
cut their operating expenses and increase their profits.
I am also aware of the increased costs they incur upon
the rest of us taxpaying American citizens.
I believe the Oklahoma Legislature should have
gone one step farther and changed "WELFARE" into
"WORKFARE." In my opinion, NO person should re-
ceive anything for nothing! I highly resent hard earned
tax dollars used to allow another person to "sit on their
can" and reap the benefits of my labor.
We need elected officials with enough gumption to
do something for the people who pay their salaries, not
for those who elect them for the additional benefits
they are promising to provide at taxpayers' expense.

PROFILE KINDNESS


surprised when an editor
called her in August an-
nouncing the magazine was
printing the story.
Sperring said at a music
practice, Madsen grabbed


her and said, "I need to talk
to you this afternoon."
"The lady's going to call
you tonight at 7 o'clock,"
Sperring was told. Later the
magazine sent a photograph-
er to the Sperring farm.
Madsen said when she saw
the request for stories about
kindness, Sperring was the
first person who came to
mind.
"Julia's just right for this


story," Madsen said. "She is
so giving and caring."
The music group meets at
Sperring's farm in a former
hog barn they call the gather-
ing place. Fitted with a
kitchen, bathroom and seat-
ing area, Sperring and her
husband, Ollen, got the idea
for the gathering place after
visiting several craft shops in
Georgia.
When it isn't being used


for a music hall, the Sper-
rings hold family get-togeth-
ers there.
The gathering place sits on
the Sperrings' century pio-
neer family farm, a designa-
tion conferred by the Florida
Department of Agriculture
for farms that have been kept
in the same family for at

play a dulcimer," she said,
noting that you don't have to
read music to play.
Sperring's decision to give
lessons actually came at the
request of a parent. Sperring
met a girl named Savannah
Howell while assisting at the
SOS music youth camp last
year. Sperring began teach-
ing Savannah and her sib-
lings how to play the dul-
cimer.
Savannah, 11, said at a
practice last week that her
favorite song is "Oh, Joe
Clark." She and her siblings
Hannah, 13, and Brent, 16,
also play the dulcimer, while
sister Autumn, 7, keeps time
with the music on the
spoons.
Shelia Madsen became
Sperring's first adult student.
After Sperring learned that
Madsen, only an acquain-
tance at the time, received a
dulcimer for Christmas she
was asked to join the group.
"She made it sound like I
was doing her a favor," by
joining the class, Madsen
said.
Madsen said Sperring's
kindness meant a lot to her
because she had recently
been diagnosed with cancer
when she was asked to join.
Madsen, who is now cancer-
free, wrote to American Pro-
file, a newsmagazine includ-
ed in Friday editions of the
Democrat, detailing Sper-
ring's kindness. She did so
after seeing a request in the
magazine for submissions of
individuals showing acts of
kindness without expecting
anything in return.
Madsen's submission was
chosen and featured in the
cover story, "Acts of Kind-
ness," Jan. 4.
Madsen said she wrote the
article a year ago and was

The woman called her bank

been used 11 times around
Live Oak.
After further investigation
by deputy Chuck Tompkins,
Borrell was positively iden-
tified on surveillance video

has at least 75 pecan trees
planted on the land. Several
years ago, a pecan tree fell.
The Sperrings decided to
have some pieces of furni-
ture made out of the wood,
and, of course, several dul-
cimers. The tree was planted
by Ollen's father in 1900.

teeth?
A: Your child's baby teeth may someday be
worth a lot more than a few dollars under the
pillow. At least some scientists are convinced
that the soft, pink pulp inside baby teeth is a
rich lode of stem cells that can be preserved
as a sort of insurance against future medical
problems.
Stem cells can be used to form nerves,
blood, muscle, bone, bone marrow and to
fight disease. Research in this area is new,
but promising. And there's the considerable
advantage that preserving the stem cells in
baby teeth carries no controversy, as there is
over the use of embryonic stem cells.
Only a handful of companies around the
country are actually storing dental pulp,
usually in containers filled with liquid nitrogen
and kept at subzero temperatures. Some
current prices for storage of cells range from
$89 a year to $120. There may also be a one-
time upfront cost. Bioden, a company in
Texas, and the New England -Cryogenic
Center Inc.; in Newton, Mass. are amoni the
companies now engaged in the practice. The
research is just another example of how the
practice and value of dentistry is advancing
every day.

Annie's Project
geared to farm
women's needs
Getting a grip on today's agriculture technol-
ogy and becoming an effective farm business
partner is the focus of Annie's Project. Annie's
Project is based on the experiences of a farm
wife who spent her lifetime learning how to be
an involved business partner with her farm hus-
band. Together they did great things, but it was-
n't easy. Annie's Project takes life experiences
and shares it with farmwomen living and work-
ing in a complex, dynamic and evolving busi-
ness environment.
In the class, farm women receive training in
the areas of financial records, production
records, marketing plans, risk management, le-
gal regulations and human resources. This
women's empowerment program will be of-
fered in six lessons spanning three weeks be-
ginning Tuesday, Feb. 5. The lessons will alter-
nate between Lake City and Live Oak (Tues-
days in Lake City and Fridays in Live Oak)
through riday. Feb. 22. The hours are 9-12
a.m,. The cost is $50 which covers class sup-
plies and refreshments. Class size is limited and
preregistration is required by Friday, Feb. 1.
Contact Suwannee County Extension at 386-
362-2771 or Columbia County Extension at

also contained a dehumidifi-

Cameron.
The value of the pot was
estimated at $30,000.
Cameron said that homes
generally use significantly
more electricity than normal
when marijuana is being
grown within them. He said
the Clines stole electricity by
tapping into the line coming
into the house, bypassing the
meter. Cameron said the
Clines were stealing hun-

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Memories of the Giants

versus the Packers


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels

The NFL has narrowed
it down to the final four.
The Giants go to Green
Bay and the Chargers
travel to New England.
The winners go to Arizona
for the Super Bowl in
about 20 days. The hype
will begin Monday and by'
the time the game is
played we will all be so
glad it is over.
This week the sports
shows will be filled with
black and white film clips
of the 1962 New York
Giants-Green Bay Packers
Championship game. The
players will be bundled
up, steam will cascade
from their mouths and
they will paw at the frozen
tundra. Surprise, they will
be at Yankee Stadium in
the Bronx, New York, no
wind-chill factors, wooden
goalposts on the field,: no
soccer-style kickers, no


situational players, 36-
man rosters going man to
man for 60 minutes.
It was the coldest day of
my young life. I sat in the
bleachers, Section D Row
12 Seat 18. We poured hot
chocolate on our toes to
make sure they were still
there. The beer man's
mustache was frozen, it
was so cold they cancelled
the halftime show, and
half way through the third
quarter many bleacher
rows had been set on fire
to keep warm. It was 3
degrees. The Giants lost,;
their only points coming
on a blocked punt. Bart
Starr spent the day
handing off to Jim Taylor
and Paul Hornung as they
ran the power sweep, lead
by Kramer and Thurston.
Robustelli, Katkavage,
Modewleski, and Huff
couldn't stop them. Y.A.
Tittle, Del Shofner, and
Frank Gifford never got it
going. The Giants had lost
the championship game
the year before to Green
Bay and would lose it the
next year to Chicago and
Bobby Wade. The Giants
would not see another
playoff game for 18 years,
unless they watched it on
TV. The Packers went on
to history lead by Vince
Lombardi. Lombardi had
been an assistant on the

OUTDOORS


New Year brings additional requirements for wildlife owners


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) has
established new rules for people who possess
or exhibit wildlife that recently came into
effect or will become effective at the
beginning of 2008.
As of Jan. 1, people licensed to possess
captive wildlife, nonnative venomous reptiles
or Reptiles of Concern must have a Captive
Wildlife Critical Incident and Disaster Plan.
This plan outlines how owners or exhibitors
should secure or evacuate their animals in the
event of natural disasters and critical
incidents. Additionally, people licensed to
possess or exhibit Class I wildlife, nonnative
venomous reptiles or Reptiles of Concern
must report any escape immediately to the
FWC's Division of Law Enforcement.
Class I wildlife such as lions, bears,
crocodiles, chimpanzees and rhinoceros are
defined as wildlife posing a significant
danger to people.
"These new rules are for the protection and
welfare of people and the wildlife," said
Capt. Linda Harrison of FWC's
Investigations Section. "We hope to prevent
problems, The requirement of this plan gives
permittees something to think about. If an
escape or natural disaster should occur, it is
better to be prepared to adequately respond to
the situation."
Exhibiting wildlife will require some
establishments and private wildlife owners to
pay more. In 2007, the bond for exhibiting
venomous reptiles increased from $1,000 to


$10,000. Effective Feb. 1, people or
businesses exhibiting Class I captive wildlife
will be required to provide a surety bond or a
financial responsibility guarantee of $10,000
or maintain $2 million in general
comprehensive liability insurance, with $2
million required per occurrence.
Anyone who possesses a Class I wildlife
permit with limited exceptions now must
have a minimum of 5 acres of property.
Additionally, facilities housing Class I
captive wildlife cannot be in areas zoned
solely for residential use.
Class II wildlife also can pose a danger to
people. They include many species of
monkeys, bobcats, cougars, wolves, coyotes
and caiman. Class II wildlife owners must
now have a minimum of 21/2 acres. The
FWC will require substantial experience and
specific cage and facility requirements to be
met before it will issue a permit.
Nonnative venomous reptiles are all
species of venomous snakes and lizards that
do not occur naturally in Florida. Reptiles of
Concern are the Indian or Burmese python,
African rock python, amethystine python,
reticulated python, green anaconda and Nile
monitor lizard. People possessing any
venomous reptiles or Reptiles of Concern
must be permitted, paying a fee of $100 per
year. They also must meet new, stricter
caging and facility requirements.
"Some of these reptile species pose a threat
to human life or Florida's native species,"
Harrison said. "Obviously, venomous reptiles


can be hazardous to human health. Nonnative
species, which have been released into the
wild and thrived, may potentially wreak
havoc on native species, which are falling
prey to them."
People who possess venomous reptiles are
now required to mark cages and enclosures
with a card stating, "Danger, Venomous
Reptile." The card must identify the reptile,'
and it also must accompany the reptile when
it is removed from its cage. A bite or
exposure protocol is required, which provides
the name of an emergency contact and
information on what to do should a bite
occur.
People who own nonnative venomous
reptiles or Reptiles of Concern for personal
use must have the animals permanently
identified. Nonnative venomous reptiles must
be identified by photograph or by
implantation of a passive integrated
transponder (PIT) tag, also referred to as a
microchip. Reptiles of Concern must be
permanently identified by implantation of a
PIT tag. The PIT tag number and specimen
inf6roiation must be maintained in the
owner's records.
Owners of any nonnative venomous
reptiles or Reptiles of Concern acquired prior
to Jan. 1, 2008, will have until July 1 to meet
the PIT tagging requirement. Any specimens
acquired after Jan. 1 must be permanently
identified when the animal is acquired.
People possessing venomous reptiles or
Reptiles of Concern are also required to keep


records of changes in inventory, which are a
result of births, deaths, acquisition, sales or
transfers. Records must be readily available
'for inspection by FWC personnel. These
records also must be submitted to the FWC.
People who sell venomous reptiles or
Reptiles of Concern must submit these
records twice a year: once upon application
and again six months later. People who
possess venomous reptiles or Reptiles of
Concern for personal use must submit these
records upon application and when there is
an inventory change.
On July 1, 2007, red-eared slider turtles
(Trachemys scripta elegans) became listed as
a Conditional Species. People who acquired
red-eared slider turtles after July 1, 2007,
must have a permit. No permit will be issued
for personal possession.
People who possess red-eared sliders
acquired before July 1, 2007, may keep those
specimens without a permit until they are
legally transferred or disposed of. After July
1, 2008, however, no one may have a red-
eared slider as a pet that is less than 4 inches
in size. Those owning the turtles legally may
not allow them to reproduce, and all eggs
must be destroyed.
It is illegal to release any nonnative species
into the wild in Florida. As of this year,
penalties for certain captive-wildlife-law
violations have increased, and in some
instances, people who repeatedly violate
captive wildlife laws and rules can be
charged with a felony.

performance thus far.
"We're still improving every week, in the practice
room and on the mat," said Laxton. "Our seniors are
providing the leadership we need now and our

Laxton also cautioned his team not to look too far

"Although Clay is always tough, Wakulla High

cautioned.

Hoggetowne Medieval Faire



returns to Gainesville


The Alachua County Fairgrounds
will come alive when the sounds of
trumpets, minstrels and revelry return
to Gainesville as part of one of North
Central Florida's premier events. The
22nd Annual Hoggetowne Medieval
Faire once again brings magic and
merriment to Florida. Join hundreds
of actors, artisans and volunteers for
two weekends of excitement, Jan. 26-
27 and Feb. 1-3
Join the crowd and cheer for your
favorite contender as mounted
knights joust in full plate armor on
the tournament field. Applaud street
performers who dance,
juggle and jest for your m
amusement. Listen to
minstrels playing period
music and enjoy
continuous live
entertainment on eight
stages. The bustling
medieval marketplace is
the perfect place to browse
for that perfect gift or
trinket.
Enjoy your day watching
a living chess game played
out with human chess
pieces as Robin Hood and
his Merry Men battle
against the evil Sheriff of
Nottingham, or test your
own skills in games of
chance, and strength.
Watch and learn as artisans
demonstrate blacksmithing,
weaving, leatherworking,
woodcarving, pottery and
much more. Our food court
provides visitors with
mouth-watering treats fit
for a king. Indulge in
sweet potato fries,
bloomin' onions or our
famous giant turkey legs,
as well as a variety of


pastries and desserts.
The Faire is the perfect place to
bring even the youngest members of
the kingdom. Children delight in
visiting the royal pavilion, where
they will become lords and ladies of
the court of Hoggetowne. Treat not
only your children, but also yourself
with rides on a camel, pony or even
an elephant. Human-powered push
rides further add to the authentic
medieval fun.
Faire hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
on Saturdays and Sundays and 9:30
a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday. Admission

PORTABLE GENERATORS!


Many residents who lose power may turn to
emergency generators to ensure a continuous'flow
of electricity to refrigerators, freezers, lights, fans
and other appliances. SVEC urges residents to
exercise extreme caution. While generators are a
convenience in keeping appliances running during
storm-related outages, they can also create hazards
for homeowners and electric utility workers.

When operating a generator:


'Always operate a generator in accordance with
manufacturer's guidelines and instructions.
,To avoid CO poisoning, never use a generator indoors or in
attached garages. Only operate the generator outdoors in a
well-ventilated, dry area from air intakes to the home.
*To avoid electrocution, plug individual appliances into the
generator using heavy duty, outdoor rated cords with a wire
gauge adequate for the appliance load.
* If connecting into the house wiring is necessary on a
temporary basis, homes must have a transfer switch
installed by a licensed electrician. A transfer switch allows

If you desire to obtain a transfer switch for rest
use the cooperative has approved a meter socke
based transfer switch by GENERLINK model
MA23-N or S. Member would purchase the trar
switch through GENERLINK (1-800-886-3837
www.globalpowerproducts.com) and contact th
cooperative to schedule installation at no charge


your house to receive power directly from a portable
generator as opposed to power normally supplied by
SVEC. Transfer switches isolate the circuits supplied by
the generator and prevent backfeeding inadvertently
energizing circuits in both systems.
* Backfeeding can most commonly occur when a
generator is connected directly to the electric panel or
circuit in a home. Feeding power back into the utility
system during an outage will energize the transformer
serving the house and could pose a serious threat to line
and service and tree crews working to restore power in
the area who may not know they are working with an
energized line.

furniture and toys. All dona-
tions should be in good con-
dition; otherwise, they can-
not sell them. Thank you!
Volunteers are wanted and
needed four hours a week
on the day of your choice.
Call to learn more. People
are always needed to hold,
pet, love and walk the
homeless animals at the
shelter, so if you can't adopt
you can always come help
in many other ways.
RECYCLING BINS:
Live Oak: There is a
newspaper recycling bin at
305 Pinewood Drive, Live
Oak, just west of Johnson's
Appliance/Radio Shack.
Lee: Recycling bins are
located at the shelter at
1156 SE Bisbee Loop,
Madison (just South of Lee)
for newspapers, catalogs,
paper, magazines and bro-
ken down cardboard. All the
money goes to help the
homeless animals.
SPAYING AND
NEUTERING:
Experts say the most im-
portant thing people can do
to help their pets is to get
them spayed or neutered.
This means the animals get,
an operation, to be sure they
can't have kittens or pup-
pies. They are asleep during
the operation, so they aren't'
scared or in pain.
Spaying and neutering are
so important because there
are so many animals need-
ing care and not enough
homes or shelters for them.
One cat or dog can have
many litters in its life. Its
kittens or puppies can have
many litters, too. This can
end up creating thousands
of new cats and dogs.
Featured animals for
adoption:
Remember, do not leave
pets in vehicles for any
length of time due to the
heat and humidity or cold
weather.

Learning about Arthritis


As most middle-aged men and women would attest, an
aging body is one that experiences more than a few
changes. Among the more common changes is a decrease
in vision or hearing and a reduction in how much exercise
the body can take. While everyone's body is different, it's
safe to say both men and women can expect a change or
two in their body's makeup as they get older.

One of the most common chronic health problems
among Americans is arthritis, which affects 46 million
adults in the United States alone. While most people are
aware of the word "arthritis," they might not be aware of
the specifics surrounding these conditions.

What is Arthritis?

Unbeknownst to many people, arthritis is not actually a
single disease. In fact, arthritis refers to more than 100
medical conditions. And though arthritis is commonly
associated with senior citizens, it is not restricted to the
older set. While the most common form of arthritis
generally afflicts those over the age of 60, young adults,
the middle-aged and even infants are not immune to
arthritis.

So why is arthritis such a blanket term? All types of
arthritis share one commonality, which is they affect the
musculoskeletal system, in particular the body's joints.
Arthritic conditions can result in pain, stiffness and
inflammation of the joints and can cause damage to a,
joint's cartilage as well. Damaged cartilage can make
seemingly ordinary tasks such as brushing your teeth,
walking or even using your computer's keyboard very
difficult.

While joint problems are the piece that links all types of
arthritis, the damage done by arthritis can extend beyond
the joints as well. Systemic arthritis can affect the body's
major organs, such as the heart, lungs and kidneys, among
other things,

Who Gets Arthritis?

According to the Arthritis Foundation, more than half
-those affected with arthritis are under the age of 65. Those
numbers include the nearly 300,000 children who suffer
from an arthritic condition.

As for men and women, women are more likely to be
stricken with arthritis. Of the more than 41 million cases
of doctor diagnosed arthritis, roughly 24 million are
women.


Arthritis can make something as simple as typing on
your keyboard a painful and laborious process.

What Are the Types of Arthritis?

Though there are more than 100 medical conditions
classified under the umbrella term arthritis, the following
types are a few that qualify.

Rheumatoid arthritis: This affects mostly women and is
one of the most disabling forms of arthritis. It's serious
because, as the joint becomes inflamed, it has an adverse
affect on the body's immune system.

Juvenile arthritis: Like the term "arthritis," juvenile
arthritis is a general term and refers to a handful of arthritic
conditions affecting children.

Fibromyalgia: This can be very painful, affecting the
muscles and attachments to the bone. Rare in men,
fibromyalgia mainly affects women.

Gout: Unlike fibromyalgia, gout affects mostly men and
is often the result of a defect in body chemistry, one that can
be brought on by poor diet. Fortunately, gout, which often
attacks the big toe, can typically be controlled by both
medications and by making positive changes in diet.

Osteoarthritis: This occurs as bone cartilage begins to
deteriorate. As the cartilage at the ends of bones
deteriorates, bone begins to rub against bone, making
osteoarthritis one of the more painful and difficult to live
with forms of arthritis. The most prevalent form of arthritis,
osteoarthritis greatly limits a person's movements as the
cartilage continues to deteriorate.

To learn more about arthritis and its many forms, visit the
Arthritis Foundation Web site at www.arthritis.org.
