Amendment 1, the much-
discussed property tax mea-
sure, finally goes before voters
next Tuesday. Unlike, an earli-


er measure struck down by the
courts last fall, Amendment 1
does not ask homeowners to
give up the 3 percent annual
assessment cap imposed by
Save Our Homes. Instead, it
contains four elements.


First, it is said to double
Floiidians' $25,000 homestead
exemption although school
taxes (which account for about
half your property tax dollars
in Suwannee County) are ex-
empt from the measure.
Second, the plan adds
"portability" to the Save Our
Homes program, meaning you
can take your savings with
you when you move.
Third, Amendment 1 impos-
es a 10 percent cap on assess-
ment hikes for non-homestead
property businesses and sec-

Suwannee grad makes his

By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
For most people, riding a bike is a
leisure activity, something to do as a
hobby. For Harlan Price it is a demand-
ing profession. Price, 32, was raised in
Suwannee County, and graduated from
Suwannee High in 1994, where he was
on the tennis and swim teams. He went
on to graduate from the University of
Florida in 1998 with a degree in politi-
cal science. He now resides in Philadel-
phia.
Price has always been the adventur-
ous type. He used to ride trails in White
Springs and canoe the river with his
dad. He really got into building when he
spent about six months trekking through
Europe in 2004. "The bike is a neat in-

of the red brick road across from the Post
Office. And since it is the only red brick
road in Wellborn, it should not be hard to
find.
Now, you may ask, what do Dorothy and
Toto have to do with all of this? Nothing,
really. We in Wellborn are certainly not over
the rainbow in the Land of Oz or trying to
get back to Kansas, and I, for one, have
never seen flying monkeys in the outback.

days of our home town, when cotton was
king and the McLeran General Merchandise
Store was the hub of activity from its
opening in 1884 until it closed in 1967. It
isn't a long road, at least not like it used to
be. The late Blake Lowe fold me our portion
of the red brick road was put down in 1916,
when he was just a boy of about six. At one
time the road stretched from Jacksonville all
the way to Tallahassee, and people traveled
along its red brick bed daily, some on
horseback, others in horse and buggy.
Occasionally a Model T car would cruise
along the super highway of that day.
I wish that our red brick road could be
maintained a little better than it is,
preserving it for posterity's sake, so that
future generations of outback children and
visitors to our hometown can see a part of
the town's history intact. And while I'm
wishing, I wish a plaque could be erected
and displayed somewhere along our antique,
red brick road. Is anyone listening? Or are
you all out there looking for thoe flying
monkeys somewhere over the rainbow?
It's that time, you know, to say so long for
now. But before I go I would like to remind
afl of you to please keep our troops and their
families in your daily prayers. Remember
to tell those you love that you love them.
Help your neighbor when you see their need.
And be kind to the stranger, for you may one


day be a stranger who needs someone to be
kind. And until the next time remember the
words of Sally Koch: "Great opportunities
to help others seldom come, but small ones
surround us every day." And God bless you
and America.

Treatments for COPD
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic lung
condition in which lung airways are obstructed. Chronic bronchitis,
asthmatic bronchitis, and emphysema .are all forms of COPD. When
the tubes and air sacs that make up the lungs become blocked, this
leads to a person's decreased ability to exhale, causing air to become
trapped in the lungs. This leads to difficulty in breathing. Long-term
smoking is a major cause of COPD. Symptoms include a persistent
cough, increased mucus production, shortness of breath, and chest
tightness. As a result, respiratory infections may occur more
frequently.
While there is no cure for COPD and the damage of the condition is
irreversible, treatments are available to alleviate symptoms and
decrease the risk of complications. Persons who smoke should stop
smoking. Inhaled bronchodilators work to relax muscles surrounding
the airways, which helps to alleviate coughing and shortness of breath.
Albuterol (Proventil, Ventolin) is a short-acting bronchodilator that is
used to quickly relieve shortness of breath. Serevent (Salmeterol) is a
long-acting bronchodilator that should be used on a regular basis and
should not be used in an emergency situation. Fluticasone (Flovent) is
an inhaled corticosteroid, which works to reduce airway inflammation
and improve breathing. 416695-F

Webelos Cub Scouts


experience Camp Blanding


By Liz Hallman

The annual Webelos-Akela weekend is designed to
provide a camping experience for first and second
year (4th and 5th grades) Webelos and adult
parent/guardian. They camped in pairs with a host
Boy Scout Troop to help familiarize the Webelos and
their parents with the Boy Scout Program. This
fulfills one of the requirements for Outdoorsman
Activity Badge, which is 1 of 20 Activity Badges the
Webelos can earn.
The Webelos arrived early Saturday morning to
participate in a series of Round Robin/Show-n-Do
activities throughout the day, which included Fire
Building, Cooking, Knots, Compass, Camping Safety,
Camp Gadgets and Fishing. Their favorite activity
was ."compass" in which each boy learned how to
navigate using a map and compass. Each boy was
then given an object to locate and required to give the
correct coordinates/bearings of that object under the
direction and guidance of both U. S. Army (Ret.) Sgt.
Walker and U. S. Navy (Ret.) Miles Donahue.
Saturday evening they attended a Campfire
Program in which numerous Troops performed skits,
songs, cheers and sing-a-longs. At the end, they had
the privilege to watch a flag-retirement ceremony in


which unserviceable United States flags were
destroyed by burning. When they were dismissed for
the evening, they went back to camp and had a little
fun of their own around the campfire with Troop 85
out of Lake City.
After a brief Sunday morning church service and
singing, everyone cleaned up the area and packed
their vehicles. On the way out of the camp we stopped
to see some of the military equipment and the
memorials on display. We had a great time together
making a lot of memories; then, headed home to Live
Oak!
The second-year Webelos Scouts will take their
newly acquired knowledge, skills and abilities with
them when they crossover to Boy Scout Troop 408 in
a couple of months. Boy Scouts is the next level in the
scouting program for those boys who are at least 11
(but not 18;) or have finished the 5th grade; or who
are 10 1/2 and have achieved the Arrow of Light
award while in Webelos. A boy does not have to have
been a Cub Scout to be a Boy Scout...any boy can
join!
For more information on Boy and/or Cub Scout
programs in our area, please contact Cubmaster Tasha
Cockburn at 386-362-2255 or e-mail:
tashacockburn@hotmail.com.

Send them back to
Amendment 1, the property tax measure on Tuesday's bal-
lot, is a far cry from the comprehensive reform Floridians
were promised during last year's legislative debates. We rec-
ommend a vote against this proposal.
A state constitutional amendment requiring approval of 60
percent of voters, Amendment 1 has four components -
three of which fail to withstand scrutiny. Our analysis fol-
lows.

1. 'Doubling' of the homestead exemption
Amendment 1 is said to double the current $25,000 home-
stead exemption in Florida. The claim is misleading at best.
First, the new exemption does not apply to school taxes,
which account for nearly half your property tax bill in
Suwannee County. Second, the additional exemption applies
in full only to homes with assessed values of at least $75,000.
That's because this element of Amendment 1 targets' the
"third" $25,000 of a home's assessed value anything be-
tween $50,000 and $75,000. Those with homes assessed at
$50,000 or less will see no savings under this part of the plan.
Those with homes assessed at less than $75,000 (but more
than $50,000) will see only par- Amendn
tial savings.
Suwannee County is home to f
many a- modest dwelling, and
some folks here will see no re- Su
lief at all. But what about the
other end of the scale? The maximum annual savings for a
Suwannee County resident under this measure is $207, says
Property Appraiser Lamar Jenkins. City dwellers will max
out at $358, he notes. Still, that's better than nothing, isn't it?
We'll come back to that question a bit later.

2. Save 'Our Homes portability
For some, this expansion of Save Our Homes is the most.
attractive element of Amendment 1. The so-called "portabil-
ity" component of the plan would allow homeowners who
have benefited from the annual 3 percent assessment cap im-
posed by Save Our Homes to take their savings with them
when they move.
Let's say the assessed value of your home is $300,000, but
due to savings accrued under Save Our Homes you pay prop-
erty taxes on an assessed value of just $150,000. Under cur-
rent law, if you move, you have to start all over again. You're
still protected by the 3 percent assessment cap, but the meter
resets at zero. If your new home is assessed at, say, $400,000,
you'll pay taxes on the full amount.
Under Amendment 1 that wouldn't be the case. You could
move to that new $400,000 home and take your entire Save
Our Homes benefit with you. That means you'd only pay tax-
es oni an assessed value of $250,000 $400,000 minus the
$150,000 savings previously accrued.
If you moved to a less expensive home, you'd be able to
take a proportionate share of your accrued savings with you.
If your new home were assessed at $200,000, you would be
taxed on an assessed value of $100,000 half that amount.
That's because your previous accrued savings ($150,000)
amounted to half the assessed value of your previous home
($300,000). (Note: Homestead exemptions apply all the way
around.)
Here's the problem. Experts in constitutional law believe
this element of Amendment 1 could be struck down by the


To the citizens of Suwannee County:


On behalf of the Suwannee County School Board, I urge
you to vote "No" on proposed Property Tax Amendment 1,
which will be on the ballot Jan. 29, 2008. This Amendment
is a cruel hoax because while promising tax relief it fails to
provide genuine tax reform. This poorly devised Amend-
ment was concocted by our legislators with little public in-
put. The proposed tax package ignores the current eco-
nomic downturn in Florida. Florida's sagging economy is
unlikely to begin to rebound before 2010.
There are three main reasons why we believe the citizens
of Suwannee County should vote "No":


Dear Editor:
I recently received the email newsletter sent by Con-
gressman Boyd's office. It dealt in large part with fiscal re-
sponsibility by government. I responded to him as follows-
I read with interest everything you wrote in your newslet-
ter, and then came the amazement.
It almost seemed as though you are suggesting we need
fiscal responsibility in government. On the surface, it
sounds great. But then we read about elected officials either
voting themselves a pay raise usually larger than inflation
index, or not voting against what amounts to an automatic
one unless it is voted against.
We read, here in Live Oak as an example, of a city em-
ployee who purchased without being authorized to do so an
SUV that cost the taxpayers well over $30,000, when a
much more economical vehicle would have done nicely.
We hear on the CBS evening news that an Alaskan law-
maker stuck an earmark onto a bill giving $10 million to a
south Florida community they didn't ask for and didn't want
(and they've returned it) that very same lawmaker who
made the news not too long ago with the infamous "Bridge
to Nowhere."
We read and/or hear about the pork aka earmarks dol-
lars that have continued to creep to higher and higher levels
every year despite the rhetoric denouncing such fiscal irre-
sponsibility.
I am not foolish enough to believe that this sort of behav-
ior can be stopped in my lifetime I'm 65 but don't you
think that the elected officials could at least present the illu-
sion of making an effort, even a minimal effort.
Here's how I make my selection at the voting booth. If the


the drawing board
courts (though only after years of costly litigation, of course).
Save Our Homes has already been challenged in federal
court, on the grounds that it violates the constitutional right
to travel without government interference (the argument be-
ing that newcomers are treated unfairly in relation to long-
time homeowners). According to Florida TaxWatch, a con-
servative, well-respected critic of government waste, porta-
bility might only make things worse. "Portability would in-
crease the scope and the magnitude of that disparity and
thereby increase the chances of a successful challenge [to
Save Our Homes] on federal constitutional grounds," reads
the group's official report on Amendment 1.
If the portability provision is eventually ruled unconstitu-
tional, the state could be ordered to pay billions to those who
were denied that benefit. The TaxWatch report quotes a lead-
ing tax attorney, hired by the legislature to assess this exact
risk, as follows: "If I were a legislator, I would not have sup-
ported a constitutional amendment that in my judgment
would put the state treasury at.some risk."
And if the portability provision isn't struck down by the
courts? What remains is a basic question of fairness. Is it
nent 1 right that those who have bene-
fited from the boon of Save Our
SHomes receive -even more re-
lief, while others those who
Democrat need help the most are pro-
DemCocrat vided none? We believe a more
equitable solution may be in order.

3. 10 percent cap on non-homestead assessments
Owners of small businesses (or of second homes) could
benefit from this one in theory. Amendment 1 caps annu-
al assessment hikes at 10 percent for non-homestead proper-
ties. However, Property Appraiser Jenkins says assessments
here rarely rise at more than half that rate. That's the case
throughout the state rendering this element of Amendment
1 virtually meaningless.

4. $25,000 tangible personal property exemption
This element of Amendment 1, which provides a $25,000
exemption for office furniture, fixtures, computers and such,
will help small businesses.
Mobile home owners also benefit. Storage rooms, carports
and attached porches would be tax exempt, up to $25,000.
Some farm equipment would also be exempt. A great many
Floridians would benefit, however modestly, from this mea-
sure.

Amendment 1 wasn't the legislature's first choice for prop-
erty tax reform last fall. An even less attractive proposal,
which would have phased out Save Our Homes in favor of a
one-time "superexemption," was struck down by the courts
in September. In order to keep their campaign promises to
Florida homeowners, lawmakers scrambled to come up with
something to replace it. Amendment 1 was born scant weeks
later.
Is the current proposal better than nothing? The question
merits no response, in our view. We should be asking instead
whether taxpayers deserve better and whether our law-
makers are capable, with a little more effort, of providing it.
The answer to both of these questions is Yes. Your vote on
Amendment 1 should be No.


1. The Amendment will hurt our teachers and schools and
lead to a reduction in the level of services and instruction
we provide. The Amendment does not hold school districts
harmless from operating and capital revenue losses. This is
on top of mandatory budget reductions that our school dis-
trict has made this year because of state revenue shortfall.
2. The Amendment will cause local government to raise
taxes because Tallahassee's tax package shifts funding re-
sponsibilities to local governments and increases the burden
of existing unfunded mandates. The Amendment does not
safeguard local control and flexibility.

Dear Editor:
Liberty and Justice for ALL not so liberty and justice
for some but not for the unborn babies!
Thirty-five years have passed since the U.S. 'Supreme
Court legalized abortion in its Roe vs. Wade decision. Thir-
ty-five years ago, and 50 million deaths that's right, 50
million babies have been slaughtered since 1973, because
the U.S. Supreme Court said the "right to choose" out-
weighed their "right to life."
This is America's evil holocaust, slaughtering unborn ba-
bies we can't imagine the intense agony that these babies
endure excruciating pain parts of their little bodies torn
apart by the forceps from a doctor (who takes an oath to
SAVE lives, not to DESTROY them.)
Wake up America abortion is causing shipwreck to our
nation When will the bloodshed of the innocents end?
We will soon be voting in the Presidential Primary, Jan.
29. If you believe that all babies are precious, vote for a
pro-life nominee If you are pro-choice, and believe that
killing the unborn babies is okay THINK AGAIN and ask
yourself "What would Jesus do?" Then cast your vote for a
pro-life nominee you'll be glad you did.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


QWhat is squamous cell carcinoma?
A: Oral cancer can come In many forms. The
most common is called squamous cell
carcinoma! The' condition may first show Itself
as 4 small white area that turns into an open
sore with raised, inwardly folding edges. The
exact cause of this malignancy is unknown,
but contributing factors are, irritants like
smoking, excessive alcohol consumption;
broken or uneven teeth, dentures that don't fit
properly and overexposure fo sunlight.
Any time a sore In the mouth'does not heal
within two weeks, see your dentist. Your
dentist may readily recognize. that the
condition Is a non-malignant fibroma, for
instance, If there Is a question, however,
about the nature of the lesion, your dentist
may refer you to an oral pathologist.- a dentist
who specializes in the diagnosis and
treatment of diseases or to an oral surgeon.
Depending on the size of the lesion, it may
be totally or partially removed and sent for a
biopsy, an analysis of its composition. As with
any medical problem, thie earlier a squamous
cell carcinoma is detected, the bealter the
chances of effective treatment: This is why
your dentist will examine all portions of your
mouth when you go in for a routine visit.

AN OPEN LETTER ON

AMENDMENT 1


Continued From Page 6A

3. The Amendment provides
the most property tax relief to
those who need it the least while
doing little or nothing for those
who need it most. This Amend-
ment hurts those it is trying to
help and grants a windfall to oth-
ers. (It is estimated that the typi-
cal homeowner will save only
$240 per year.)
Among those opposing
Amendment 1 are taxpayer pro-
tection groups, educators and
newspapers:
Florida ThxWatch
Florida League-of Cities
Florida Education Associa-
tion, representing the teachers of
our state
Florida School Boards Asso-
ciation
Florida Association of Dis-
trict School Superintendents
Florida Professional Fire-
fighters
Jacksonville Times-Union,
Gainesville Sun, Palm Beach
Post, Sarasota Herald-Tribune,
Daytona Beach News-Journal,
St. Petersburg Times, Florida To-


day and Tampa Tribune
Everyone agrees that Florida's
tax policies are antiquated and
need a major overhaul to protect
the investment people have made
in their homes. But the best way
to do that is to allow tAe Taxation
and Budget Reform Commission
take a top-to-bottom look at in-
equities in the system and pro-
pose well-thought-out solutions
so that the people of the state of
Florida can vote on real tax re-
form and not quick fix tax relief.
This is a much better alternative
to Amendment 1 that was passed
hurriedly in Tallahassee in an at-
tempt to dodge hard work and
political heat and shift the bur-
den to local government.
In closing, I want to thank
your readers for their time and
attention and ask them to talk to
their local elected representa-.
tives and obtain the facts to
make an intelligent decision on
Jan. 29.
Sincerely yours,
Julie Ulmer
Chairman

ond homes, for example.
Fourth, a $25,000 exemption is offered on
office furniture and fixtures. The exemption
applies as well to farm equipment and some
mobile home accessories, such as carports and
porches.
Suwannee County residents would save a
maximum of $207 per year under Amendment
1, according to Property Appraiser Lamar
Jenkins. Residents of Live Oak would save a
maximum of $358 annually.
For Jenkins the savings do not outweigh the
costs including the risk that diminished tax
revenue could lead to reductions in local ser-
vices.
"We've got to have money to run local gov-
ernment," he said. "We the people demand. I
these services. Without funding they'll have to
shrink. Normally when you start talking about
tax relief, everybody's in favor of it. But I
don't think this is the way to go."
Others, including the Florida Association of
Realtors, see the matter differently. "The im-
mediate property,tax cuts that will result from
the passage of Amendment 1 on Jan. 29 would
go a long way toward revitalizing Florida's
economy and keeping the American dream
alive," according to a press release from the
organization.
We'll try to straighten things out, and give
you our take on the matter, on Page 6A. See

vention, and good for explor-
ing the world," Price said in a
telephone interview Monday.
"It is my tool for adventure."
This is training season for
Price, who races for Indepen-
dent Fabrication as a solo rid-
er. He said that training races
can last from two to nine and
a half hours, sometimes 12.
He races in venues all over
the country. Price is in his
third year of racing. He said
mountain bike racing usually
starts in April and can last
through November. Price
said that most of the races he
competes in are in rural areas.
To save money, he camps out
as much as he can when the
races last several days. "It's
not a well paid job, but it is
rewarding, you meet lots of,
people," Price said. Price's
diet is fairly strict. He doesn't
drink anything with caffeine
in it, doesn't eat fast food, or
anything containing dairy.
He won the inaugural, all-
city cross country race in
New York City in May of
'07. This was the grand
opening of the first legal
mountain bike trails in the
city. Price competed in the
Shenandoah Mountain 100
National Endurance Series
Final in September of '07,
where he took hothe second
place and beat 2006 Tour De
France winner Floyd Landis
(who has since been stripped
of his title). He says his clos-
est competitor right now is


Chris Eatoughs, who has six
consecutive world titles un-
der his belt for 24-hour solo
racing. Price broke one of
Eatoughs' course records.
Price will travel to Texas in
February for a 100 kilometer
race. to begin the season. He
will then travel to Spain for
training in. March. The 100
mile races start in April. All
this leads up to the finale in
Costa Rica. The La Ruta de
los Conquistadores begins
Nov. 12. Known as the hard-
est mountain bike competi-
tion in the world, the four-
day race traverses Costa Rica
from the west coast town of
Jaco to the Caribbean beach
of Playa Bonita.
Other than training and
racing, Price likes writing
and photography. "I find my-
self doing freelance writing
and photography, and had a
couple of things published,"
he noted. He has written for
such magazines as Dirt Rag
and Bicycling. Former
Suwannee Democrat editor
Randy Lefko got Price start-
ed inphotography when .he
used to shoot photos of local
games.
Price's dad, Dennis, who
still lives in Live Oak, said he
is very proud of his son.
"He's been putting his heart
and soul into mountain bike
racing for the last three to
four years," he said.
Price said that he wanted to
thank his parents, sponsors
and everyone else who gives
him support, for his success.

presented by Chevy in the No. 33
Kevin Harvick Inc. Chevrolet.
This year, Harvick isn't driving
for Richard Childress Racing in the
Camping World 300 presented by
Chevy, but instead wheeling the
No. 33 Camping World Chevrolet
for his own team.
"To unload and speed-wise, I
think everybody is pretty happy
with the way everybody unloaded,"
Harvick said at lunch. "We pretty
much started from scratch with all
the cars and just kind of started
over. Everybody did a great job
putting it together. Now we've got
to see how they drive and go from
there. I'm looking forward to the
challenge of running my own cars
and creating a different challenge
from all aspects of it."
Harvick won't compete in any
Nationwide Series races this year
for Richard Childress Racing,
which fields the No. 29 Shell
Pennzoil Chevrolet for him in the
N'ASCAR Sprint Cup Series. The
Bakersfield, Calif., driver will
instead race only his No. 33
Chevrolet in 22races as he
continues to grow and strengthen
his Kevin Harvick Inc. operation.
"We basically started over,"


Harvick said. "We bought all new
downforce cars from the chassis up.
We did a lot more development
work this year with the current
cars. Last year when we unloaded,
we were dead last with these
particular cars when we came to
Daytona and tested. There were a
second and half off. I feel like the,
drag numbers are better, I, feel like
the horsepower is better, I feel like
the cars are well prepared.
"I've been so fortunate to have
run the 21 and 2 (at RCR) and be
able to win a lot of races but it was
time to do something different for
myself and to kind of meet that
challenge."
Fastest of the day: Johnny Sauter
in the No. 1 Chevrolet for Phoenix
Racing was the fastest in the
morning session on Friday with a
speed of 179.076 mph. Rounding
out the top five were Mike
McLaughlin (178.958), Kevin
* Harvick (178.873), Brad
Keselowski (178.809) and Tim
McCreadie (178.781).
In the afternoon session, Kyle
Busch in a Toyota was fastest at
182.556 mph followed by Dario
Franchitti (182.293), Robert
Richardson (182.282) and Johnny
Sauter (182.017).
Wallhce: Mike Wallace, who was
27th and 28th fastest in the Friday


morning session, is always a driver
to keep an eye on at Daytona
International Speedway. He has
victories at DIS in ARCA RE/MAX
Series, the Nationwide Series and
the inaugural NASCAR Craftsman
Truck Series event.
For this weekend's testing
sessions, he is driving a Toyota for
the first time with Germain Racing.
"Daytona is Daytona so the race
track is basically the same as it's
always has been," Wallace said.
"We're not setting the field on fire
at the moment but we're here to
test and we're learning a lot. We've
got two cars. We've narrowed in on
one car to do the reminder of
(Friday) with non-drafting runs.
We'll go through our whole list.
We've got 33 items that we need to
go through that they want
information and data. Overall,
everything is going good."
Busch keeps going and going:
Kyle Busch has been a testing
machine this January at Daytona
International Speedway. He shook
down his new Toyota ride for Joe
Gibbs Racing in the NASCAR
Sprint Cup Series three-day testing
session, the hopped behind the
wheel of the No. 51 Ballew
Motorsports Toyota in the
Craftsman Truck Series three-day
testing and this weekend is testing


the No. 18 Toyota that he'll race in
the Camping World 300 presented
by Chevy.
First on track: Harvick was the
first to hit the high banks Friday
morning as the first wave of
NASCAR Nationwide Series
testing at DIS got underway.
Harvick, who won last year's
Camping World 300 presented by
Chevy at DIS, was also the first to
hit the track during his NASCAR
Sprint Cup Series testing for the
50th running of the Daytona 500.
Quick hits: Besides Kyle Busch,
other NASCAR Sprint Cup Series
drivers participating in this
weekend's first wave of
Nationwide Series testing include
Clint Bowyer, Greg Biffle, Kevin
Harvick, Dario Franchitti-and Carl
Edwards ... Misting conditions
delayed the start of Nationwide
Series testing on Friday and the.
teams cut a half a hour off the noon
lunch break ... The late Dale
Earnhardt owns the most Camping
World 300 presented by Chevy
victories with seven ... Cale Gale,
who will.share the driving duties on
the No. 77 Kevin Harvick Inc.
Chevrolet with Ron Hornaday,
won't start testing at DIS until
Sunday, but is serving as a spotter
to his owner Kevin Harvick during
the first wave of testing.

A WEEK OF WINTER CAMP


BOY SCOUT WINTER CAMP: ClintfBrown, Troop
693, works on Skating Merit Badge.
- Photo: Tom Burnett


By Tom Burnett
Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop 693

The North Florida Council,
Jacksonville, conducted its first
"winter camp" Dec. 26-31, 2007 at
Camp Shands which is just south of
Melrose. Patrick Wright was the camp
director. The camp offered 26 different
merit badges which are not offered
during summer camp.
Approximately 90 scouts from all
over North Florida attended the event,
including eight scouts from two troops
in Live Oak. Many of the scouts
completed seven merit badges. A few
of the merit badges required work to
be done at home, so the scouts
received only "partials" for them.
The weather was wonderful...mostly
warm during the day and comfortably
cool at night. Only one day had rain .
and it was limited to a couple of
showers of short duration.
The merit badge counselors were
adult volunteers or older teens who
had taught at the camp for the past
several summers. The subject matter
was either their hobby or vocations,
which added a great deal of
enthusiasm to the presentations and
class participation.
Boy Scouts meet year-round and
accept new boys at any time. Three
troops meet in Live Oak on different
nights of the week at different
locations. Anyone interested in
additional information in the scouting
program in Live Oak should email or
call Tom Burnett,
tburnett@windstream.net, or 386-362-
1796.

Boys and Girls Club opens here


Dreams do come true in
Suwannee County. After a
year of planning, the Boys
and Girls Club has opened
its doors to the children of
Live Oak and Suwannee
County.
With the help of the
Chamber of Commerce,
more than 100 community
leaders and supporters
turned out for the grand
opening recently. "The
turnout today has been
phenomenal, we are ecstatic
of the support we are
receiving here in Live Oak"
said Kevin Kidd, chief
professional officer for the
Boys and Girls Club of
North Central Florida.
Board member Yvonne
Scott has been working
along with others in the
community tp give kids a
-positive place to go.
Programs offered are
Homework help, Tutoring,
Academic Enrichment, Anti-
Drug Programs, Positive
Life Choices and Study of
the Arts. The Club serves
youth six to fifteen years old
in the facility located at 609
Fifth Street in the Azalea
Court complex. The hours
of operation are from after
school to 7 p.m.
"Truancy, drugs, alcohol,
teen pregnancy are issues
the Boys and Girls Club
helps the community


address," Kidd said.
"Volunteers coming together
to support the club is how
we address these issues and
give back to the
community."
Ryan Larson, Live Oak
unit director, is looking for
individuals who would like
to make an impact on out
local youth to volunteer.
"Anyone who would like to
help improve our
community and allow our
youth to reach new heights
please stop by," he said.
Initial funding for the


Club came from the
Department of Education,
21st Century Learning
Centers Grant and local
individuals. Now that the
Club has opened, ongoing
funding will be a focus of
the local board. Fundraisers
for the coming year are
already planned, from a
community banquet in
March to the "Reeling for
Kids" fishing tournament in
May. The fundraising
success will help the club to
expand and increase. services
and include more youth.

NFCC Women's Basketball Team 2008


Last home game is a

squeaker for NFCC

men's basketball



Lost free throws could have won

the 73-71 game for Academy


The last home game of
the 2007-08 season for the
North Florida Community
College (NFCC) Men's
Basketball Academy
brought home a hard lesson
the team has to make all
free throws or possibly face
defeat.
The Academy players
learned that difficult lesson
as it took a loss in a barn-
burner when St. Johns Riv-
er Community College
(SJRCC) came to Madison
Jan. 10 to play ball and did
just that, defeating NFCC
by only two points, 73 -
71. It was the type of game
where the fans just go wild
as they cheer on their
teams.
"The game last night.was
very close," said NFCC
Head Basketball Coach
Clyde Alexander. "We
knew we were in for a
fight, (but) we. came up
short."
Alexander said the team
now understands the impor-
tance of making every free
shot. "We missed too many
free throws down the
stretch of the game and lost
by two points. We made 19
out of 30 free throws,'"
Alexander said. "If we had
made only three more than
we missed, we would have
won."
Here's a rundown of how
the NFCC Academy did on
scoring:

First Federal Bank's employee
contribution program, First Federal
Way, has come to a close for 2007.
This year, First Federal employees
together contributed $5,000 more than
last year.. Employees donated more
than $20,100, which facilitated a
match of the same amount by First
Federal for a total of $40,200
contributed to community agencies.
Through First Federal Way, employees
elect to contribute a portion of their
paycheck to a non-profit agency of
their choice. At the end of each year,


First Federal matches the total
contribution and awards it to the
selected agencies.
Keith Leibfried, president and CEO
of First Federal, expressed his
appreciation to all of the agency
representatives for their dedication to.
bettering the quality of life in our
communities, to the First Federal
employees for their generosity in
giving back to our communities, and to
First Federal's customers for their trust
and confidence in our organization as
we continue to be a good corporate
citizen to the communities we serve.

suwanneevalley@embarq.com.
Adoption fee of $65 includes
spay/neuter, deworming, heartworm/feline

to meet you. The shelter also offers op-
tional microchipping when you adopt for

The Suwannee Valley Humane Society
really appreciates donations; it couldn't

Please consider taking them donations of

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 recy-
cling 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, cata-
logs, paper, magazines and broken down
cardboard. All the money goes to help the
homeless animals..
SPAYING AND NEUTERING:
Experts say the most important 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 puppies. They are
asleep during the operation, so they aren't

Cardio a Key to a Successful Exercise Regimen


When it comes time to lose weight, many people look to the
nearby fitness center to help them shed those extra pounds.
When entering a gym for the first time, newcomers are often
overwhelmed by the buzz of activity and the clanking of
weights coupled with the host of machines they seem to know
nothing about.
While an initial foray into the gym can be intimidating, it's
important to keep in mind that one of the best ways to lose
weight is something you've been doing almost since the day
you were born. Since the moment you took your first step,
you've been doing cardio, or cardiovascular exercise. More
widely referred to as aerobic exercise, cardio has a number of
benefits, not the least of which is losing weight.
Cardio strengthens bones. Osteoporosis is a bone disease
in which the bones become brittle and fragile due to tissue loss.
This tissue loss can be the result of age or deficiencies in
calcium or vitamin D. A workout that includes jogging or even
fast walking can reduce the risk of osteoporosis because, as the
National Qsteoporosis Foundation (NOF) points out, these
weight-bearing activities strengthen the skeletal system. NOF
also notes that any exercise in which feet or legs are bearing
the weight, including dancing and climbing, are effective
cardio exercises.
Cardio reduces body fat. Including cardio.in your regular
exercise routine helps to increase lean body tissue while
reducing fat. If the goal of your weight loss is to look better,
then including cardio in your regular routine is a great way to
achieve this. While this might sound simple, the more calories
you bum, the more pounds you'll lose, and cardio has proven
to be a great way to bum calories.
Cardio can reduce blood pressure. Many people choose to
lose weight not because of a New Year's resolution, but
because their doctor (or their body) has told them they need to
shed weight to survive. For those with high blood pressure,


cardio has proven an effective way to lower blood pressure. .A
2002 study at Tulane University found that aerobic, or
cardiovascular, exercise lowered blood pressure in all groups of
people, whether they had pre-existing conditions or had normal
blood pressure.
Cardio can help relieve the pain of arthritis. A
cardiovascular program that includes water exercise can be
especially valuable to arthritis sufferers. Such exercise can help
keep the joints moving while strengthening the muscles around
the joints. In addition, cardiovascular exercise increases energy
levels, which helps arthritis sufferers better handle some the daily
tasks that have become difficult as a result of the arthritis.
