BHS 8th grader wins district title

Rachael Ibarra didn't have amnesia at the
Suwannee District Spelling Bee Wednesday.
After her challenger, Caroline Croft, mis-
spelled "hydraulic," Ibarra was handed
"crimson." After successfully spelling it,
Ibarra had to tackle one last word before
sealing her victory. The winning word? A-m-
n-e-s-i-a. Amnesia.


Ib'arra took the win. Croft was runner-up.
After all the other contestants were elimi-
nated, Ibarra and Croft engaged in several
rounds of head-to-head competition. Every
time both misspelled a word another round
began. One of the words Croft was given
was "mascara." That would prove easy for a
seventh grader.
A small crowd of parents and supporters
attended the event, held at the Suwannee
County Schools District board room.

Cameron said the fight broke up but resumed around

then allegedly buried Flowers in a shallow grave.

His name was Jason
Sheffield, but people just called
him Manny. He got the name as
a boy. "His grandmother would
say, 'Look at that little man,'"
Sheffield's wife, Kelli, remem-

Sheffield, who died Dec. 29 in an auto accident
near Live Oak, was 31. Besides Kelli, he leaves be-
hind two daughters, Alexis, 9, and Macy, 5.
"He always told me, 'Look to the good, always be
optimistic,'" Kelli said of her late husband. "He al-
ways had a smile on his face."

Public speaking:

tea
Fear of public me
speaking is America's trop
greatest anxiety. Someone car
once said that at a funeral, most people would rather in ora
be in the casket than giving the eulogy. If children are con
exposed to giving speeches at an early age, then they hav
will not. be burdened by this fear as they grow older. The sini
4-H Tropicana Public Speaking program is made (
available each year for 4th, 5th and 6th grade teachers to teai
implement as a 4-H School Enrichment program. Public are
schools, private schools and home schools are all spr
allowed to participate. This unique program is designed Tea
to provide a fun way for students to learn public in t
speaking skills. Florida 4-H is very proud of this ma
program. Students do not have to be 4-H members to
participate. Last year more than 150,000 young people

onsored the contest since 1969 and
Divides classroom materials for

This is a great
opportunity for kids to
be able to stand up in
front of their peers and
speak. The 4-H
Tropicana speech only
has to between two to
three minutes long and
can be on any subject
the child wishes. The
speech does not have
to be completely
memorized and
students may use note
cards to help them
through the speech.

Rant


Want to vent?

Our hotline is

open 24/7.

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

Editor's note: We appreciate your
comments, folks, but please try to keep
them brief We want to publish as many
points of view as possible, and some of
the longer entries have, on occasion,
been omitted due to space limitations.

I'm a little surprised from some of
the reactions from our city council-
men on the vehicle purchase that
everyone keeps talking about. The
three councilmen (Don Boyette, John
Hale and Bennie Thomas) who claim
this will possibly result in another in-
crease in utility rates are the same ex-
act three councilmen who recently
voted to pass the health insurance
"opt-out" payment plan. Let's see,
these "public servants" voted (in a
split vote, 3 to 2) to increase their
monthly pay by approximately $500 a
month. However, the purchhse of a
vehicle is going to cause our utility
rates to increase. What effect did the
health insurance "opt-out" have on
utility rates? Where is the city going
to find health insurance when the cur-
rent provider drops them for failure of
participation? What is going to hap-
pen to the city employees with preex-
isting health conditions? Is there a
limit in the amount of money that the
councilmen can get each month for
this blatant disguised theft?

This "opt-out" policy needs to be
abolished from the city immediately.
Since Mr. Boyette has already an-
nounced that he is not running for of-
fice in May, the health insurance "opt-
out" issue should be an election focus
point. I challenge all voters and the
Suwannee Democrat to question any
and all candidates running for city of-
fice on whether or not they will im-
mediately vote to remove this ridicu-
lous misuse of city funds for the greed
of a few. Will .someone please stand
up with. some common sense?

This is' to those who ranted and
raved about city and county officials.
There is a city election in May and a
county election in September. If you
would like to offer for one of these of-
fices then you could run things the
way you think they should be run. Did
you even vote in the last election?

Yes, I would just like to know why
a county commissioner such as Mr.
Maxwell that lives on a lake can close
down a whole lake because of noise
and a little bit of trash he is complain-
ing about. But yet he allows a man to
be defecating and urinating and
throwing trash around on property.
That is not good health-wise, public-
wise for anyone.

I think it is rather odd that the three
councilmen John Hale, Don Boyette
and Bennie Thomas who voted for the
health insurance opt-out plan are so
concerned about the purchase of a
new city vehicle. The health insurance
opt-out plan puts thousands of dollars


of cash in the pockets of these coun-
cilmen every year and may lead to the
city being dropped by the health in-
surance carrier due to lack of partici-
pation. It's funny that when the mon-
ey is going into the wrong pockets it's
just not that big of a deal. They are
putting on a big show for the public to
show how frugal they are with city
funds. Who are they kidding?

I think it's not right for code en-
forcement officer to come to a black-
operated business while there are cus-
tomers inside and run them out after
paying their money because they want
to enforce the code on the business.
Yes they have a job to do, but there is
a right time to enforce the rules. I also
want to know why the code enforce-
ment officer needs four to five offi-
cers to accompany him to do his. job.
Do the officers have something more
important to do than to baby-sit the
code enforcement officer? Come on
people, this just isn't fight.

I'd like to agree with the reader that
posted a rant in Friday's Jan. 18th pa-
per about the trash. I'd like to add to
it I have talked to our commissioner
Mr. Billy Maxwell regarding that
same thing. It appears that Suwannee
County, the way I understand it,
maybe I get this wrong, but Suwannee
County just doesn't have the money
for anybody to go around picking up
trash. I'm not sure why we can't use
our county prisoners, but he made it
out to sound like it was going to be
when the new prison was built then
we would have all kinds of prisoners
out there able to pick .up trash, other-
wise, we're waiting in line for Baker
County prisoners to come on over and
pick up the trash. Not that there
should be any trash out there in the
first place. Like I said, that reader
made it very clear, we need to try and
get the county cleaned up a bit. I can
tell you out in Wellborn it's a mess.
I'm kind of ashamed to have anyone
over this way. I do about a mile on my
road but I can't do all the roads in
Suwannee County.

I just read the Rant & Rave on the
trash lining our county roads. I also
pay taxes and personally do not want
more of our tax dollars wasted on an-
other sign that citizens of Suwannee
County ignore. After all, have you
ever seen all the vehicles going the
same speed limit, wearing seatbelts?
They know that this law will not be
enforced and that littering will contin-
ue. I personally do not want a paid
county employee sitting on the road
waiting for someone to clean out their
car as they ride down the county
roads. I do agree it would be a great
form of exercise and a chance to
breathe in the fresh air for the resi-
dents of the city jail. I do hope that
people will think twice before throw-
ing trash out their windows. They cer-
tainly can wait to get home to clean
out their cars.

Dear Editor:
On Jan. 22, I couldn't go to the continued
city council meeting because my younger
sister died. I did find out what was said. The
mayor asked for us, to get along, but' when
Mr. Hale asked that an item I put on the
agenda be delayed until I could be at the
meeting, the rest of the city council could
care less. Mr. Duce said there was a quo-
rum. This is the same man who asked us to
continue the meeting so he could talk to the
code enforcement officer -about breaking
city policy. The council allowed that for Mr.
Duce, but not me. Mr. Stewart was allowed
to discuss the SUV.
Mr. Stewart pointed out that no law was
broken. My opinion is the city ordinance
was broken because the city spent over
$25,000. The idea of the ordinance was bro-
ken. Because Mr. Boyette pointed out the
idea behind the council making the ordi-
nance for $25,000 Was for emergencies.
This wasn't any emergency. If the council
says it's okay to accept that the city can buy
anything that is on state: bid regardless of:
the city council's feelings, I guess they
could buy a motorcycle or an Escalade and
the council shouldn't be able to do anything
about it. Mr. Stewart also said the new ve-
hicle sits seven people. If the seventh seat
was for me, you wasted your money. Mr.
Stewart also said over a 12-year period this
SUV would only cost $2,800 per year. How
many 12-year-old vehicles does the city or
anybody drive around? The fact that no
councilmen said the SUV cost almost
$40,000 and was over budget, I guess don't
matter.
Then Mr. Boyette made a motion to nev-
er discuss the SUV again. I think that's the
stuff they used to do in Russia. The council
passed the motion to never discuss the SUV
again, 3 to 1. Just because you say you can't
talk about it don't make it right. Since I am
not allowed'to discuss this at a council
meeting, I will make my motion in the
newspaper and let the city voters decide.
The city shouldn't have let this happen
and now that they did they should give the
SUV to the police department so we can get
some return on our money. Now I have had
my time to let my voters know my feelings
on the SUV. I think the city council needs to
take back their motion and do the best thing
for the city. :
Also, Mr. Boyette asked the council to
delay the meeting so he could talk to the
code officer and that was granted. Mayor
Nobles, is this what you call getting along?
Councilman Bennie Thomas

Dear Editor:
For many years I worked the political are-
na with my friend and mentor Pete Skinner.
Pete had one pf the most incredibly per-
ceptive political minds of his day. Show
Pete a proposed bill and he could tell you
the real motive behind it. Rarely was the
real motive that drove legislation the same
as the public consumption version. Rarely
was Pete wrong.
Pete had a vision regarding a way to
make the election process more constituent
friendly. Pete wanted a "None of the
Above" option on the ballot. If None of the
Above won, the whole slate was discarded
and a brand new slate would be introduced.
As I watch the presidential race heat up
and continue to have daily battles with the
arrogance, incompetence and megalomani-
acal assault on your right to make local de-
cisions locally from Tallahassee, I think of-
ten of Pete and his None of the Above op-
tion.
None of the Above would pack a polling
place. People would line up to vote against
a whole slate of self serving politicians, at
least until some slick Willie changed his or
her name to None of the Above. Oh well,
every great concept has a weakness.
Worse than a presidential primary with-
out a truly qualified candidate is a constitu-
tional amendment that is intentionally mis-
leading. The state would like for you to be-
lieve that this amendment will give you a
true $50,000 homestead exemption and re-
duce everyone's homestead taxes.
The reality is that this amendment will
benefit out-of-state property owners, the
rich, and those who want to flee South
Florida for a piece of paradise in North


Florida disproportionately. The portability
of $500,000 of the Save Our Homes differ-
ential will certainly fuel a mass exodus
from the south, which will overpower our
service capabilities without improving our
revenue capacity to grow our services. You
will suddenly find our roads and schools
overcrowded, our police capabilities over-
whelmed, our fire/rescue services woefully
inadequate and our rural lifestyle destroyed.
All these things brought to you by the
same people who promised you insurance
reform; the same group that invested your
institutional money in risky ventures; the
same group that raided your property taxes
by 7.44 percent while promising you prop-
erty tax relief; the same fine folks who want
to take your home rule authority away so
they can mismanage all your governmental
affairs. Where is that None of the Above
button when you really need it?
Best wishes (and good luck),
Randy Hatch
County Commissioner
District 5

Dear Editor:
The Suwannee Democrat's stance on
property tax increase is like an old TV com-
mercial I remember. There was some guy
from nowhere Minnesota standing knee-
deep in snow trying to hitchhike to Miami
for spring break. Finally, this beautiful girl
offers him a ride to Ft. Lauderdale. and he
turns her down since she was not going all
the way to Miami. A similar scene occurred
in Steve Martin's The Jerk and, once again,
in Dumb and Dumber, where two guys
turned down a ride in a bus full of bikini-
clad beauties. So the property tax amend-
ment is not perfect, but what law is? What
government, law, state, county,, organization
or person is perfect?
We have a chance to pass an amendment
that will protect us from unreasonable prop-
erty tax increases that ran as high as 800
percent last year here in Suwannee County,
Don't listen to some of the county officials
who are using scare tactics leading you to
believe the county will collapse if you vote
for the amendment. Vote for fairness and
equality. Vote in favor of small businesses,
Vote YES!
Rick Paul

plant identification and general care of
plants. The students were thrilled to be able
to plant flower boxes with pansies, petunias
and snapdragons. These plants are cold
tolerant in the South and will bring months
of beauty to the windows of the classroom.
The students want to thank "Mr. Dan" for
taking the time in his busy schedule
to help them with their project.
They learned a lot, and this
is a lesson that will last all
year as they take care of
their plants.

Loving pets for you from the Suwannee County Animal Shelter


Success Story #2:
Buddy, a real survivor
^ ^ -'' ^I'".


Buddy


This story is about "Buddy," a pit bull, another extreme
case that was rescued by the shelter after a call about two
dogs that had been dumped. When the shelter officers got to
the site, one of the dogs was dead, shot to death. The other
was barely alive, weighed about 30 pounds, starving, dehy-
drated, had open wounds, a broken nose and jaw and broken
ribs. The dog was not a puppy, but was a young adult about
a year to a year and a half old.
The general consensus was that the two dogs had been
used as fighting dogs...this is a reality right here in our coun-
ty, not something you only read about in the papers. But the
dog was reacting to the touch and concern of his rescuers and
showed them that, despite his terrible condition, he was


worth a second chance at life. In spite of his wounds and
emaciated shape, he made several efforts to climb into the
cab of their truck, and with gentle nudges and licks of their
hands, let them know that he knew they would help him.
With a little attention and care, food, and a soft blanket to
lie on, the dog began to gain weight. Immediate attention to
the open wounds helped them begin to heal, the pain less-
ened, and a steady supply of food and clean water helped the
dog gain a little weight.
Then a member of his future adoptive family came in and
saw him. With all that was still evident of his poor condition,
she fell in love with the animal and told the folks at the shel-
ter that when he was ready, she and her husband would take
him home. Subsequent care from a vet showed the severity
of his wounds in X-rays, including the end of a knife, still in
Buddy's body, where the dog had been stabbed. The couple
who adopted him took a lot of time and veterinary care to
help him return to the lovable dog he has become, and have
named him "Buddy", because that is what he has become to
them.
Buddy has become a wonderful addition to this family in
the last eight months, and has fit right in with the other three
family dogs. His only contender is the family's small Chi-
huahua, who still does not like sharing the foot of the bed
with Buddy. I have met Buddy several times, and he was one
of our featured animals at our Expo in November. He is a pit
bull, but the complete oppo-
site of everything I've ever T
heard about pit bulls, as are Thanks Li
so many other breeds that 1
wind up at the shelter.
His family hopes he will On the morning of Dec.
qualify as a "therapy dog" in 17 at approximately 8:12
the near future, and that his a.m., the Live Oak Fire

house off South Walker
Avenue next to Suwannee
Elementary School. LOFD
took no chances and re-
sponded with their ladder
truck (L-1), two fire en-
gines (E-7, E-2), hazmat
truck (H-9) and mobile
command car (C-1).
While en route to the
fire they received another
call, which was a fire
alarm located at Suwannee
Health Care, so L-1 and E-
2 rerouted to respond to
this call. LOFD sent an ad-
ditional fire engine (E-5)
to back up the original fire
call. Upon LOFD's arrival
to the original call, they
discovered the fire to be in
a portable building be-
tween the elementary
school and the pool at the
Sportsplex. There was
moderate smoke and some
fire visible. So they set up
a perimeter, "pulled a line"
ad went to work. after ex-
tinguishing the fire and
completing overhaul the
LOFD returned to their
station to refit their fire en-
gines and equipment used.
They then went on with
their day. The2 very next
day they received a letter
from the Suwannee County
School Board thanking
them for doing such a pro-
fessional job at the fire in
the portable building at the
Sportsplex. The school
board expressed just how
thankful they were for the
LOFD doing such a great


man population needs to be aware of the cruelty and neglect
others like Buddy suffer every day. Please, if you care about
your pets, be responsible about their welfare, especially if
they are allowed to roam freely. Spay or neuter your pets, be
aware of where they are, and if you know of any animals that
are abused or neglected, please report it to your sheriffs de-
partment or, if you live in the city limits, to the city animal
control.
Too many dogs like Buddy have to be put down, but each
animal is different, and many of them are salvageable and
make terrific pets.
We have many other dogs and cats at the shelter. Please
come by and see them, pet them, and ask about them. If we
don't have what you're looking for the first time, come back
again. There is always an abundance of dogs and cats, pup-
pies and kittens, looking for loving homes.
We still have the Catahoula mix puppy and her sister
(black with white markings) available for adoption. They are
between four and five months old, are being walked on a
leash, are learning to sit and come, and are so ready for a new
home. They were featured in the newspaper last week. We
are at 11150 144th Street on the same road as the county
landfill just off highway 129 south of Live Oak. Shelter
hours are 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Monday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
on Tuesday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to about noon on Sat-

Live Oak Fire Department
Chief Chad Croft
200 East Duval Street
Live Oak, FL 32064

Dear Mr. Croft:

I would like to, on behalf of my department and the
School Board of Suwannee County, thank the Live Oak
Fire Department for outstanding service in time of need.

On Monday, December 17, 2007, I was alerted that a
fire had developed in orie of our portable buildings lo-
cated at the Sportsplex. The fire was extinguished with-
out incident, as should be expected. However, how the
fire was extinguished is why I am writing this letter. The
firemen that responded were exceedingly professional.
They treated' the building with respect; their actions
maintained the integrity of the building and kept all dam-
age to a minimum. Very little water was used, with the
focus staying on the fire itself and not the random spray-
ing of water over the entirety of the facility. To say that I
was impressed would be an understatement. What could
have a disaster was not! Because of the outstanding job
of the Live Oak Fire Department, the job of restoring the
facility to operating condition will be much easier than
expected!
It is with sincere gratitude that I say Thank You for a
job well done!

Respectfully,

Mark A. Carver
Director of Maintenance

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 your house to receive power directly from a portable

McClain, 24, of 520 SW 5th
St., Jasper, was arrested and
charged with two counts of
attempted murder after a
shooting on Thursday, Jan.
17, according to a report
from the Jasper Police De-
partment. The shooting was
the continuation of a feud be-
tween McClain and persons
from St. Petersburg.
When law enforcement of-
ficers responded to a report
of shots fired at an apartment
at the corner of llth Ave. and
Martin Luther King Dr., they
found the door open, but no
one was in the apartment, the
report states. Witnesses told
the officers there were two
vehicles at the stop sign at
the time of the shooting.
Vanessa Walls, McClain's
mother, told the officers her
son was sitting on the porch
of the apartment when two
trucks drove by and he shot
at them, according to the re-
port.
McClain said a, silver
Yukon and a white Tahoe
drove past the apartment,
turned around and drove
back by, the report states.
When they stopped at the
comer in front of the apart-
ment, McClain saw a gun
through the open passenger
window, so he started shoot-
ing at both vehicles. He stat-
ed no one fired a gun from
either vehicle, according to
the report.
Both vehicles were hit by
bullets, but no one was in-
jured, according to the re-
port. The officers recovered
the gun, several spent cases,
and a bullet from a nearby
pole: The items were sent to
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement for analy-
sis.
The driver of the Yukon
was identified as Deon Bell,.
25, of 3739 NW.108th Ave.,
Jasper. At the time the report
was released the driver of the
Tahoe had not been identi-
fied, according to the report.
McClain is being held at
the Hamilton County Jail
with no bond, according to
the booking report.
If .you have any informa-
tion about this shooting, call
the Jasper Police Department
at 386-792-1130 or Crime
Stoppers at 386-792-TIPS
(8477). You do not have to

ward.

MAYO-Working all day against inclement
weather on Wednesday, Jan. 16, Lafayette
County Sheriffs Office personnel, assisted by
an underwater search and rescue team from
the Taylor County Sheriffs Office, searched a
small section of the Suwannee River near the
Hal Adams boat ramp in Lafayette County for
a 2004 black and red half-ton pickup that
went missing since 4:32 p.m. the previous
day. Despite the difficult challenge they
faced, everyone involved refused to give up
until it was successfully recovered.
A truck driver and resident of Live Oak,
William Thomas Crone, noticed something pe-
culiar drifting downstream as he was crossing
Hal Adams in Tuesday. "I thought at first I'd
been driving too long," Crone said.
Minutes after one of the two divers entered
the murky water with a waterproof flashlight,
the pickup was located approximately 20 feet

JASPER-Miss Florida
Kylie Williams was the
focus of several inter-
views and discussions in
the third episode of Miss
America: Reality Check.
For the first time since it
happened, Williams
talked about an. accident
that happened when she
was 15 years old an ex-
plosion that completely
burned the top three lay-
ers of the skin on her face.
Williams admitted to
the other girls in her
group that she was .self-
conscious about the scars
caused by the accident.
She said she had been
hesitant to jump in the
pool during the second
episode because she didn't


want the camera to zoom in on her face after the make-up
washed off.
The challenges in this episode were designed to test the
contestants' composure, confidence and creativity.
Williams, as well as Miss Virginia Hannah Kiefer and
Miss Alaska Cari Leyva were ranked as the top three con-
testants who'were the most receptive to change. Miss Iowa
Diana Reed, Miss Tennessee Grace Gore and Miss Rhode
Island Ashley Bickford were ranked as the bottom three

from the surface, according to one of the divers
who found the vehicle.
The dive team made several attempts to raise
the pickup to the surface with five floating wa-
ter barrels attached to the top of the cab. After
realizing the pickup would not budge an inch,
LCSO dispatched Donnie Hamlin to bring his
tow truck in order to try to pull the pickup with
a long cable. It was wedged tight between sev-


who were most resistant to change.
The gifts will face their most difficult challenge the
Red Carpet Walk. They will have to use everything they
have learned about hair, makeup, walking the runway and
dressing the part. The paparazzi will be waiting to snap
away while the advisory board asks the tough questions
Miss America needs to be prepared to answer:
As a result of this ultimate test, the advisory board will
award a prize package to the top three contestants who tru-
ly capture the look, attitude and personality of Miss Amer-
ica. These will be the girls to watch in the pageant.
The Miss America pageant will air live from the Planet
Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, on TLC at 8
p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26, with "Entertainment Tonight"
co-anchor and corespondent Mark Steines as host.
The contestants will face a panel of judges comprised of
experts in each of the fields that a young woman must ex-
cel in, in order to be named Miss America. The one who
wins the crown must be beautiful, talented, intelligent and
well-spoken, a leader, have a commitment to her commu-
nity, be contemporary in her style and fashion a relatable
and individual "it girl" who can connect with today's mod-
ern woman, as well as being physically fit.
This year, America has the opportunity to select a sur-
prise 16th pageant finalist with Miss America: America's
Choice, an online competition that allows viewers to vote
for their favorite Miss America contestant. Fans can vote
by visiting www.tlc.com/missamerica through Saturday,
Jan. 26. The contestant with the most votes, who is not al-
ready included as a top 15 finalist, will be chosen as
"America's Choice," and be revealed during the Miss
America Live! finale.


eral rocks, according to the dive team.
As Hamlin was tightening the cable, it
broke and another one had to be attached. A
second attempt was made and the pickup
slowly made its way to the surface. As the bar-
rels began to appear, everyone gave a loud
cheer.
Shane Jenkins and his wife Barbara, both of
Live Oak, stood nearby as they watched their
pickup being pulled out of the water. "I loved
that truck," Jenkins said while trying to hold
back tears. They were at the scene all day un-
til their pickup was recovered. Jenkins stated
they had owned the vehicle for nearly three
years.
According to the LCSO incident report, the
pickup traveled approximately 75 yards down-
stream from the boat ramp. The report further
indicated the incident began when Jenkins at-
tempted to look for a lost item after getting out
of the vehicle at the bottom of the ramp. There
were no reported injuries.

Dense fog

blankets area
By Ira Mikell
Special to the Democrat
MAYO-The recent tragic
accident along the 1-4. corri-
dor near Orlando sent shock-
waves throughout Florida
and the entire nation. It re-
minded everyone just how
dangerous driving in the fog
can be as well as the impor-
tance of being a safe driver.
Numerous vehicles .were
mangled, while others were
completely destroyed. Ap-
proximately 79 automobiles
and, tractor tral1ors were in-
volved, according to the
Florida Highway Patrol; and
five reported fatalities so far.
FHP encourages every mo-
torist to use safe driving
skills and use extreme cau-
tion while driving in the fog.
"Fog is a thin layer of cloud
resting on the ground. It can
reduce visibility to one-
fourth mile or less, creating
hazardous driving, condi-
tions. When conditions make
fog likely, be prepared to
cope at a moment's notice,"
FHP said.
Motorists are advised to


use low beam lights, remove
all distractions, pay attention
to what is happening all
around your vehicle, keep
your eyes focused on the
road ahead, use line mark-
ings on the edge of the road
as a guide, do not pass any
vehicle while in the fog, and
always use your turn signal.

Stewart said based on the
life of the wrecked vehicle,


"this vehicle should last at

you're looking at less than

The first Super Bowl was

Buffalo lost again in the

Baseball in 60 days..
This is sure to be a season
marred by steroids and
their assorted friends.
Every record from this
point forward will be
viewed very differently. If
a baseball team had to
forfeit a game in which a
doped player appeared,
that might cure the
problem.
Herschel Walker is
writing a book about his
battle with multiple
personality disorder.
Despite mental illness
Walker was never arrested
at a strip club or accused
of slapping a girlfriend.
He did, however, deserve
another Heisman Trophy. I.
hope his disorder was not
caused by the fact that he
ran by, over, and around
his opponents. A Georgia
Bulldog, a New Jeisey
General, a Dallas Cowboy
and finally traded for a
half a dozen players to
Minnesota. Hopefully his
book will bring him out
onto the talk show circuit.
He. should have some'
interesting stories to tell.
Remember when you

Labor Day between the

you could switch between
the Weather Channel and
tennis at 5 a.m. or 6 a.m.

the Australian Open. I am
thinking most of you
missed it.
Golf is here. I remember
watching Shell's Wide

come a long way baby, but

"In most of these cases,
what we find is that the deer
has a combination of both
male and female internal
sex organs, and the external
sex organs are usually
underdeveloped and not
well defined," Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC)
biologist and Deer
Management Program
leader Dr. Robert
Vanderhoof said.
"Deer with both male and
female sex organs are called
hermaphrodites. Often,
underdeveloped males,
called cryptorchids, can be
mistaken for antlered does
because they also exhibit
poorly developed external
sex organs," he said.
But after close inspection
of the carcass and its
entrails by veterinarian
David Summerlin and FWC
wildlife technician Mike
Graves, the 110-pound deer
Nowling shot had only
female sex organs and its
antlers were hard and well-
polished.
bia "In most cases, antlers on
nk female deer tend to be
ain malformed and stay in
velvet. A doe with polished
antlers, which is what I'm
told this young man shot, is

Jimmie Johnson and Casey Mears.
Earnhardt Jr. had spent his entire
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series career driving
the No. 8 Budweiser Chevrolet for Dale
Earnhardt Inc. He began competing on a
full-time basis in 2000 and has 10 victories
at Daytona International Speedway
including the 2004 Daytona 500.


quite a rare occurrence,"
Vanderhoof said. "Females
with polished antlers are
almost always infertile and
usually have tumors on their
reproductive organs, which
produce the hormone
testosterone, necessary to
enable polished antlers to
develop in deer."
Interestingly enough, four
days later and halfway
across the state in Levy
County, Cale Barber, of
Williston, shot another
antlered doe this one with*
a 4-point rack. The deer
weighed 142 pounds, which
is large for Florida deer,
especially a doe.
And just like Nowling's
6-pointi its antlers too were
hard and polished and it had
only female reproductive
organs as confirmed by
FWC biologists Elina
Garrison and Bambi Ferree
and FWC veterinarian Mark
Cunningham.
The day started out quite
normal for Nowling and his
grandfather, Waylon
Nowling, also of Jay, who
were deer hunting on a
friend's 2,000-acre tract of
land on the Escambia River
known as the Downey
Ranch.
"I think the deer are
going through somewhat of
a pre-rut, and that last snap


of cold weather really had
them moving that day. We
saw two different groups of
deer as we walked to the
stand, and we ran out
another group when we got
there," Waylon said.
While the two men sat in
a shooting house, they
watched a couple of
different groups of deer, a
f6w turkeys and a mature
black boar-hog come into
the 2-acre foodplot that
afternoon to graze on wheat
and oats.
"Earlier during the hunt, I
saw one pretty decent buck
but could never get a good
shot at him," C.J. said.
But at approximately 4:45
p.m., a nice 6-pointer
stepped out of the woods
and into view along with a
doe. That's when the
eighth-grader took aim at
the deer with his .243 rifle
and made the 175-yard shot.
"It was a heck of a good
shot, and we couldn't climb
down out of that stand
quick enough," Waylon
said. "I'm not sure who
was more excited, me or
him."
But it wasn't until the
two men had the deer
hanging up to clean when
Waylon noticed...
Houston, we have a
problem.

LOPJJ*4fK H6UR~R~URR:


Forgive and Forget

tIn today's world, it is all too easy to get offended; there
seemingly is no shortage of rude or inconsiderate people in
our daily lives. Sometimes we may even enjoy feeling the
rancor of righteous indignation well up within us when
t we've been offended and so we hold on to these offenses.
And of course, our family and friends usually oblige us
in affirming our right to, be angry with these nasty
brutes. However, the problem with getting offended,
and with holding on to these offenses, is that it
neglects to treat the offender charitably, and it
spoils our experience. We don't know why the
girl at the check-out counter is irritable;
perhaps she is having, problems at home, or
has a boyfriend who mistreats her. Therefore,
instead of trading barbs with her, why not offer
her a smile and say a quick prayer for her? Not
only is this more likely to improve her attitude
than scolding her, but it will vastly improve
our own day as well. Being offended, and
holding on to these offenses is unproductive,
and will leave us wallowing in negative
emotions.

Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and
beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness,
meekness, and patience, forbearing one another
and, if one has a complaint against another,
4m forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven
you, so you also must forgive.

Love without



trust?


Heart Matters
By Angie Land

"Is it possible to really
love someone, but not trust
them?" Absolutely...in
relationships, we often
confuse love with trust.. .but
the reality is that you can
love someone deeply and
not t st them at the very
same'time. Love is a free.
gift that you give someone,
even if they don't deserve
it. Trust is earned...it must
be built, and often in
relationships it gets
damaged or completely
broken and must be rebuilt
for the relationship to
survive.
Authors and Christian
psychologists Cloud and
Townsend explain, "Trust
is the ability to be totally
real, authentic, and
unguarded with (another).
It means being able to bring
all parts of yourself, good
and bad, strong and weak,
without fear or
condemnation or
judgment." This is a deep
level I elsfipo
attain, and most of are
painfully aware that taking
the risk to trust someone at
some point in our life has
cost us plenty. This causes
us to raise our guard and
keep it high so that we
don't risk experiencing that
kind of pain again. In fact,
that is usually our first
response when trust takes a
hit: we promise ourselves'
we will not ever let that
happen again...
Trust can be broken in
many ways: saying one
thing and doing another,
white lies, financial
betrayal, broken promises,
unfulfilled commitments,
sexual unfaithfulness at any
level and being inconsistent
as a person, When we
cannot trust someone, we
no longer know who they
are...we lose the ability to
depend on them to be there
for us, whether in one area
or maay. Even worse,
when the betrayal comes
from someone close, from
one we have exposed
private knowledge of
ourselves to, that betrayal
causes deep wounds.
Trust issues cannot be
ignored for the sake of
"keeping peace."
Rebuilding trust is hard


work and it means taking a
risk, but if both sides are
willing, it is worth the
effort. Here are a few steps
to help repair the damage:
Face the reality about
what caused the broken
trust. If you are the source
of the problem, admit your
fault. You cannot heal or
repair that which is kept
hidden or denied. If you
have been betrayed, admit
your feelings' to the other
person. Confirm your love
for them, but express your
need for this to be
addressed.
Take a broken trust
seriously. Trying to brush
it off as unimportant only
serves to deepen the
wound... a person with a
broken heart cannot be
convinced it is no big deal
any more, that one with a
broken neck.
Let the one you love
know how much you regret
what you did. In the
healing.process the one
who was betrayed will need
to be reassured of the other
person's commitment to
them. Give that
reassurance, not defensive
retaliation ("How many
times are you going to
bring that up?").
Especially in marriage, the
"offender" may need to
make himself or herself
accountable to the other
person in order, to rebuild
that which has been broken.
Give the process
time...as you take action to
change. The Bible says in
Luke 17:3, "If your brother
(husband, frietidnt1 ins,
'.rebuke (coneir nlHid
if he repents, forgive him."
The word repents here
means to take action to
change...not simply saying
I'm sorry and expecting the,
other person move on as if
nothing happened,
Trust is a vital element in
our relation'ships...when it
is broken, it's as if the
foundation of your home is
cracked...it must be
repaired, or it will no
longer be a desirable place
to live. The relationships
in your life a worth doing
the hard work to build and
rebuild trust...they are
deeply attached to our
hearts...and our hearts,
really do matter!

Finding people to hold my arms up


By Derek Maul
Each Wednesday evening I meet
with a group of 12-16 men at my
church. We call ourselves "The Men's
Room" and we're there to encourage
one another as we try to move forward
as disciples of Jesus.
What we're about, essentially, is
taking our faith seriously; sharing
stories about what difference being a
Christian has made during the week;
looking to the Bible for wisdom and
direction; recharging our spiritual
batteries; holding one another
accountable; praying for one another;
and being honest about our struggles.
I've heard variations on the
following comments from countless
people who are curious and/or
skeptical about a men's small group:
"I believe faith is a private matter; it's
between me and God." "Men are
supposed to be strong; we shouldn't
need others to be spiritual." "If other
people knew about my struggles and
doubts then I'd be less of a man."
"It's hard to be honest; I'm afraid
other people would lose respect for


me." "The Bible says 'God helps
those who help themselves.' Your
group sounds weak..."
OK. Well let's start at that last
comment. The "God helps those who
help themselves" reference is a myth.
Not biblical; not helpful; not true.
For me, Christianity works best as a
team sport. Almost 100percent of my
meaningful spiritual growth has taken
place in the context of community.
'God created is, right out of the shoot,


for relationship. It stands to reason
we're going to do faith better if we do
it together.
Next, and this is crucial, in the
world of strong men, honestly is
respected well ahead of bravado.
There's a great story about Moses in
Exodus 17. The great leader's arms
kept getting tired, and when they'
dropped to his side the Hebrew people
lost ground. So, two of his friends,.
Aaron and Hur, helped him out. In the
long run it wasn't about Moses trying
to "man up," it was about his friends,
standing alongside him, holding his
arms in place. That's what an
accountability group is all about. It's
about a commitment to follow Jesus,
and a commitment from our friends to
stand alongside, holding our arms up
when we falter.
.My book Get Real: A Spiritual
Journey For Men (Upper Room
Books, 2007) suggests that
community is the best place for
growth to occur,
The more I think about it, the more
I have to agree with myself.


For galIe: One lyin gthroom mirror


By the Rev. James L. Snyder'
Nobody enjoys privacy more than
Yours Truly. I confess I am not a very
happy camper when that privacy is
compromised in any fashion. Recent-
ly, I endured a tremendous trespass
on my privacy.
One day last week, I got up as usu-
al and tottered off to the bathroom for
my accustomed bathroom routine. It
was then I got the shock of my life of
which I am not over as of yet. I am
sure this experience will be with me
many years down the road. I am not
sure I need counseling but maybe a
day or two at a rehab center just
might do the trick.
I do confess that I am not at my
best early in the morning prior to my
bathroom ritual. As far as I am con-
cerned, the bathroom is a sacred place
of refuge before facing the world. It,
is a place where I can prepare myself
to meet the world as well as making
preparations for the world to meet
me. It would be a great travesty for
me to plunge myself out into the un-
suspecting world before going into
my bathroom and making certain
preparations. I owe the world at least
this.
Of course, with all the political
nonsense the world is imposing upon
me lately, I am tempted to thrust my-
self out into the world without any
preparations whatsoever. That would
teach the world to mess with me. On
second thought, too many innocent

bystanders would get hurt in the
process.,
On this day in question not only
was I unprepared to meet the world
but I was unprepared to meet my
bathroom. Looking back on the situa-
tion, I do vaguely remember the Gra-
cious Mistress of the Parsonage men-
tioning something to the fact that she
made'certain changes in my bath-
room. Obviously, I was preoccupied
with other things to be concerned
about this wee bit of information she
laid upon me at the time. I simply as-
sumed she was talking about waxing
the floor or changing the shower cur-
' tain. Never in my wildest dreams did
I think she would do anything as
drastic as she did.
This brings me to an important
point; never underestimate the dam-
age a wife can do to the sacred places
of her husband.
When I walked into my bathroom
and switched on the light, I had the
shock of my life. I looked in the mir-
ror, as normal and looking back at me
was the most frightful thing I have
ever seen. I thought for a moment
Stephen Ring had sabotaged my bath-
room.
The face looking back at me was
old and haggard desperately needing
a shave. The bags under his eyes
looked like sacks of potatoes and
what little hair he had looked like the
aftermath of a suicide bomber. I
wanted to call the police but I was too
paralyzed with
fear.
I must have
CC yelled or some-
o thing because my
wife came running
into the bathroom
and asked,
"What's wrong?"
Then she did
something that in-
furiated me even
more than I was at
tthe time. She
laughed.
I do not mind
people laughing
when I tell a joke
or a funny story.
However, when I
have just been
frightened out of
my mind, I do not
appreciate levity.
Then she ex-


plained to me what had happened.
My wife took it upon' herself to re-
place the mirror in my:bathroom.
For a fleeting moment, murderous
thoughts stomped through my mind.
Fortunately for me they were still
wearing their bedroom slippers and
not their marching boots.
I do not look forward to very much
in life but I do look forward to my
mirror in my bathroom. I have had
that mirror.for as long as'I can re-
member, which may not be a very
long time when I come to think of it.
I vaguely remember hearing my wife
mentioned the fact that the mirror in
my bathroom needed to be replaced. I
thought she was kidding.
When I get up in the morning, I
look forward to going into my, bath-
room mirror. I have a little ritual that
I do upon first glance into my mirror.
"Mirror, mirror on my wall; who
needs a shave the worst of all?" Then
we have a good laugh together.,
I know that my mirror, my old mir-
ror that is, was rather old and flawed
and the reflection back at me was
rather blurry. That is what made it so
endearing to me, No matter how hard
you tried to clean it the reflection was
still very cloudy at best. Then, several
years ago an accident-occurred pro-
ducing a small crack in my mirror. I
must say it was an improvement I
gladly accepted. It accommodated my
split personality: sometimes I feel
like a nut, and sometimes I don't."
One morning I could shave on the left
side of the crack and the next morn-
ing I could shave on the right side.
The thing I loved about my' old
mirror was how it clouded the truth.
The new mirror, however, is very in-
sistent upon the truth.
A verse of Scripture came to mind
as I pondered my old mirror. "For
now we see through a glass, darkly;
but then face to face: now I know in
part; but then shall I know even as
also I am known." (1 Corinthians
13:12 KJV).
If someone would like a mirror that
insists on telling the truth, I have one
for sale.

on racing in their respective
season-opening events.
Said David Reutimann,
NASCAR Sprint Cup and
SNationwide Series driver:
"It's a whole different
mentality. Testing is one
mindset and racing is totally
another. You look forward to
going out there and racing.
i The testing can get a little
monotonous but anytime
you run around Daytona is
cool. But after while, single-

little bit. You are glad to get
out here and come back and
race."
