CORRECTION

Due to inaccurate information, supplied by the
school district, Kim Hudson was wrongly identified in
Friday's Democrat as teacher of the year at Branford
Elementary School. Hudson is teacher of the year at
Suwannee Elementary School.
In addition, due to an editing error by the Democrat,
comments in Friday's edition attributed to Hudson ap-
peared in a different context than was intended. The
'Democrat regrets the errors.

DRIVERS, START YOUR MOWERS!


Annual CCS lawnmower

races coming soon
Comprehensive Community Services will hold its
10th Annual Lawn Mower Race, Saturday, Feb.
23 at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park from
9 to 11 a.m. This event has come to be a tradition in the
Suwannee Valley and is CCS's main fundraiser to help
provide advocacy and services for people with
developmental disabilities throughout North Florida.
Individual racers will battle in various heats to remain in
front of the competition and once again, there will be a
"Team Division." All it takes to make up a team is to get
four competitive riders who will race relay style. This
year's event will include an all-new "Pit Stop Challenge"
added to create rivalries in both the individual and team
divisions.
This year riders will compete on the latest Snapper
mowers provided by Jon Strayer, owner of John's Lawn
Equipment of Live Oak. Returning to announce the race will
be Wayne Littrell and Debbie Murray of local radio station
WLVO. The Suwannee Democrat will be the place to look
.for all of the up-to-date information about the winners, so
keep watching.
While you're at the race, you might want to take a look at
the brand new Snapper mower that CCS will be raffling off.
A $10 donation may just land you a new ride for your lawn.
Participants in this year's event can qualify to race as an
Individual by raising a minimum of $100 in support for
CCS, and a four person Team only has to raise a minimum
of $250. Pit Stop Sponsors have agreed to pay a $500 entry
fee. Grand Prizes will be awarded to the individual and
team raising the most money.
The race is still a month away and many local participants
have already qualified. Early Pit Stop Sponsors who have
qualified are Edwards Insurance Agency, First Federal Bank,
Florida Power & Light, Hallmark Driving in Live Oak,
Progress Energy, Suwannee Valley Electric Cooperative,
Wal-Mart and Worth Construction & Development. Early
Team Qualifiers are McCrimon's Office Systems and
Morrell's Furniture. Leading the charge in the Individual
Qualifier category are Columbia Ready Mix, Corbett's
Home Sales & Service of Live Oak, Economy Motors,

Monitor blood sugar while pregnant
Gestational diabetes refers to the type of diabetes that occurs only
during pregnancy. Excessive thirst and increased urination may
indicate that a woman who is pregnant has gestational diabetes.
Women who are over 25 years of age, overweight before
pregnancy, or who have an immediate family member with
diabetes are all at increased risk for having this condition. Women
who are pregnant are typically screened between the 24th and 28th
weeks of pregnancy. A glucose challenge test is often performed as
a way to screen for this condition. Women with gestational diabetes
are more likely to experience this condition again in a later
pregnancy, and are also more likely to develop type 2 diabetes.
Women diagnosed with gestational diabetes need to control their
blood sugar to help keep the baby healthy and avoid complications
during delivery. It is important that blood sugar be monitored.
Appropriate diet and exercise may be sufficient to control the
condition; however some pregnant women may require medication.
Insulin may be required for women who do not achieve adequate
glucose control with lifestyle changes alone. Glyburide is an oral
antidiabetic agent which may also be safe and effective in
decreasing increased glucose levels. 416695-F

Antique extravaganza at UF


Live Oak's Paul Haas puts
restored Farmall on display


Haas and daughter Katie with his 1938 Farmall at Collector's Day at the Florida State Museum
in Gainesville. -Photo: Submitted


Live Oak's Paul Haas was invited by the
University of Florida to bring one of his
antique tractors to Collector's Day at the
Florida State Museum in Gainesville Jan. 5.
Haas chose the 1938 Farmall "A," one of
eight antique tractors in his collection. The
machine had been restored by Haas less
than two months earlier.
"This Farmall A is one the rare Farmalls
due to this year's model being the first
production year for Farmall Letter Series
Tractors," he noted.
Collectors. from all over the state shared


their collections with the public. A number
of vintage cars, including a rare open wheel
Indy racer, were also on display.
Many of the show visitors ("city folk,"
Haas noted) got a kick out of a "hank
crank" starting of his A.
. Haas' antique tractor collection began
with the restoration of a 1941 John Deere
B. "The addiction took," he said, "and eight
tractors later I have built quite a
collection."
Haas' wife, Kitty, and daughter, Katie,
,accompanied him.


FOR YOUR HEALTH

From Branford Health & Wellness


World Cancer Day is Feb.
4!
Let's join in the global
initiative to protect children
from secondhand smoke, by
leading an initiative in our
counties to promote smoke-
free environments for chil-
dren.
It's a staggering
statistic: 700 million chil-
dren-almost half of the
world's youth-breathe air
polluted by tobacco
smoke. Health threats such
as bronchitis, ear infections,
asthma, coughing and
wheezing, pneumonia and
others underscore the need


for parents to protect the
children from secondhand
smoke.
On the observance of
World Cancer Day, on Feb.
4, please parents consider
this message:
Avoid smoking at home
or in a car
Caution children to stay
away from secondhand
smoke and places that allow
smoking


Teach children there is
no safe level of secondhand
smoke
Do not smoke while
pregnant or near someone
who is pregnant
Use a smoke-free day-
care center
If you are a smoker, ask
your doctor what you can do
to stop
Become a role model for
you child-do not smoke

OPINION



OUR



Suwannee Democrat


So long,


'Swanee'
Arguments against scrapping
"Swanee River" as Florida's
state song tend to come clothed
in somber reverence for all
things historical, and peppered
with references to "custom"
and "tradition."
Here's what we think: Most
of us,- ourselves included are
just adittle miffed at losing our
place in the sun. For 73 years,
our own "Swanee" has been on
the lips of Floridians at every
state function of note, and in
classrooms across the land.
Now our time in the spotlight
is done. (Or as good as done -
the legislature won't make its
final decision until spring.)
Should "Swanee River" be
allowed to remain in place -
with, perhaps, some of the
more offensive lyrics changed
or removed? It's a complex
question, and we see both
sides.
But as the debate over the is-
sue winds down, let's try to
keep things in perspective. It's
just a song, after all, and the
"Swanee" to which it refers ex-
isted only in Stephen Foster's
mind. (Foster famously never
set foot on the banks of our riv-
er, having picked the name off
a map because he liked the
way it sounded.)
Meanwhile, we still have the
real Suwannee, and no one can
take that away from us -
though South Florida folk
would love to try, especially, as
drought tightens their ever-
dwindling water supply.
Let's take this opportunity to
renew our commitment to the
real Suwannee River to pre-
serving its unique beauty and
ensuring it remains a place that
we, as well as folks across the
land, can visit and enjoy.
Let's take stock of what we
have, and remember how lucky
we are to live here. Other folks
won't be singing about our riv-
er anymore. All that means is,
we'll once again have it all to


ourselves.

Please include your full name, address

so we can verify your letter and discuss

FROM OUR READERS


To the Editor:
This letter is directed in response to the letter from Marge Wolfe on
the subject of the Roe v. Wade decision. This is a subject that I feel very
strongly about, for a number of reasons.
Ms. Wolfe states that there hasn't been "liberty and justice" for the
unborn babies that she claims have been "slaughtered" since the
Supreme Court's decision 35 years ago. However, I would like to ask
Ms. Wolfe if, that being the case, has she and her immediate and ex-
tended family seen fit, in these 35 years, to care for even one of the
mothers of these children during their pregnancies, therefore seeing to
it that they would be able to bring their pregnancy to term? And after'
the pregnancy was brought to term, have they ever adopted the baby,
even if the child was disabled and in need of substantial care for many
years?
People like Ms. Wolfe are for the right to "birth," not the right to
"life." Once these children are born there are few resources for them:
I know of whence I speak, because my husband and I took in a child
of very substantial disabilities when she was 2 1/2 years of age. She
was not related to us by blood, but we had known her since her birth,
and she was going -to be institutionalized if we didn't take her in.
Knowing what that alternative would be, we made the choice of taking
her in.
Since that time, we have had to battle the state and federal authori-
ties for every single thing this child has needed. We were told not to
adopt her because she would be eligible for more services if we didn't.
We followed that advice and are glad that we did. However, it has, at
times, been a virtual nightmare to see what we had to go through in or-
der to get the services that this child required. There were times when
we wept with despair.
Virtually every woman I have known who has made the painful de-
cision to terminate a pregnancy has done so because she realized that
if she continued the pregnancy it would break down the already-frag-
ile survival of her family.
I challenge Ms. Wolfe and all of the married couples in her family to
take in/adopt a baby of any race or color. I challenge her and the
members of her family to love, care for and raise a multiply handi-
capped child, to put up with the difficulties and trials put in their path
by ignorant and rude people who don't understand the stresses en-
countered. I challenge these people to endure the roadblocks of the
various State and Federal agencies who are supposed to help parents
but who put continual roadblocks in their way.
Then, Ms. Wolfe, then you may stand in judgment of the women
who have had to, with grief and pain, endure a procedure that breaks
their hearts because they know that to go further with the pregnancy
will subject the precious contents of their womb to a living hell.

To the Editor:
Instead of learning about "dairy life and nutrition," the first graders
who recently visited a local dairy received a storybook version of life
as a cow ("First graders check out life on the dairy," 1/21/08).
Cows are curious, sensitive animals, but on-dairy farms, they're
treated like machines, confined to cramped; stalls or in muddy, barren
lots. They are artificially impregnated and fed growth hormones that
force production of unnaturally large quantities of milk and cause their
udders to painfully swell.; '
The students 'enjoyed'pettiri the calVes, but these animals also 'live ;
a joyless life. They are separated from their distraught mothers within
days after birth and are slaughtered before they are even 4 months old.
According to nutritional expert Michael Klaper, M.D., cow's milk is
linked to runny noses, allergies, ear infections, bronchitis, and asthma.
High in saturated fat, milk encourages artery blockage and weight
problems as children grow and contributes to osteoporosis, diabetes,
heart disease, and cancer.
Delicious soy and rice milks, fortified juice, broccoli, and beans are
healthy ways to make sure kids get calcium. For more information, vis-
it www.DumpDairy.com.

To the Editor:
This letter is in response to the letter written by Mr. Tom Burnett that
appeared in your paper on Jan. 16. Mr. Burnett totally missed the point
of the water restrictions as imposed by the SRWMD the previous
week.
Perhaps Mr. Burnett hasn't been paying attention to the southeast re-
gional problems and the on going shortfall in rain that we have been
experiencing the past few years. Last year about this time, SRWMD
asked for "voluntary" reduction of water- consumption in this area to
try and reduce the amount of water being consumed. Obviously all one
had to do was look around and see the various ways we as a commu-
nity continued to use water unabated. From restaurants power washing
their driveways, buildings, car owners excessive desire to wash their
cars daily, and yes of course, lawn sprinkler systems with sprinkler
heads spraying as much in the street as on the grass and some even wa-
tering as the rain came down. The point of the matter is you cannot
continue to take more water from the ground water than is being re-
turned. Since the "Voluntary" restraints weren't working and the con-
tinued lack of ran SRWMD had to take the next step. Let's hope that
further restrictions are not imposed but the future looks grim from all
forecasts. The water that we use in our daily lives, in our homes and

business, on our lawn and landscapes, farms,
industrial operations, the moment that it leaves
the faucet it becomes "polluted" water and has
to be treated before it can be returned to the
ecological system. For Mr. Burnett's informa-
tion, watering your lawn or landscape at night
when the heat subsides and the winds calm, re-
duces water loss caused by evaporation and
your lawn and landscape gets more benefit
from water that actually gets there instead of
being pulled into the atmosphere. So you can
run your sprinkler system'for eight hours, the
only thing you have accomplished is using wa-
ter well beyond the needs of your landscape (I
guarantee over 50 percent of that water was
run-off), your wallet will be a little lighter, and
the community water table a little lower in wa-
ter.
The purpose of the restrictions is to save
"water," not money as Mr. Burnett is so obvi-
ously concerned about. You can't engineer a fix
for this situation regardless of the amount of
studies or money you are willing to throw at it.
If there is an engineering fix, it would be one
that would limit the water that a household can
consume in one day, but alas, I suspect Mr.
Burnett would like that even less.

Q: Is dental anesthesia safe?
A: The use bf anesthesia to.sedate patients Is a
safe, effective practice that can ease anilety and
make the experience In the dentist's chair more
comfortable. Dentists ar trailed for this and use
various types of sedation safely on millions of
patients every year. Here are some' of the
techniques they might bring 'to bear When
treating you: ;"I '
* Novocain Is a local anesthetic, which means it
numbs the, immediat e a of treatment. The
dentist will inject it Into the treatment area by
needle and will use it for procedures like
cleaning out and filling a cavity, treating an
infected gum area or preparing teeth for crowns.
* Topical anesthesia Is applied generally with a
swab and kills pain on skin surface. : 'I
* Nitrous oxide is a gas, sometimes called
'laughing gas, that creates a feeling of
euphoria. You will, be full conscious under Its

At a meeting two weeks
ago the council voted to quit
distinguishing between busi-
nesses and individuals and
to follow a current city ordi-
nance that makes anyone
who.is delinquent subject to
termination. The subject was
brought up after council
members discovered the city
was following unwritten
rules on handling exten-
sions, rules of which several
councilmen said they were
unaware. Under the unwrit-
ten policy, residential ac-
counts were subject to termi-
nation for nonpayment, but


Mayor Sonny Nobles
asked for a clarification Jan.
22 on whether the council
wanted to terminate the ser-
vices of delinquent business-
es.
"When you cut [business-
es] off you effectively shut
them down," Nobles said,
noting that delinquent busi-
nesses would be cut off the
next morning.
About .40 businesses and
about 240 individuals were
on the cutoff list. All busi-
nesses were granted exten-
sions. Residents weren't so
lucky.


Finance Director Jan
Parkhurst said as of Decem-
ber, in addition to the delin-
quent bills, $20,000 in late
fees and reconnection fees
had accumulated.
Councilman Mark Stewart
said the situation had put
Parkhurst in a bad position.
"I think [Parkhurst] has
been accused of breaking the
law by allowing extensions.
She's done nothing wrong,"
he said.
Stewart said his review of
a tape of a Nov. 8, 2005
council meeting revealed
that Parkhurst was given the

However, a review of the
tape by the Democrat re-
vealed only a discussion of
possible extensions for indi-
viduals, not for businesses.
Robertson said changing
that long-standing practice
would present a liability to
the city. He recommended
the council continue follow-
ing the current practice until
another ordinance is draft-
ed.
After the meeting
Parkhurst said individuals
expressing economic need
might be considered for an
extension if they pay at least
50 percent of their balance.

ents, but when the birds are
orphaned or raised in captiv-
. ity they do hnot migrate. Op-
eration Migration is an ex-
perimental migration that is
being conducted under the
direction of the Whooping
Crane Eastern Partnership, a
unique coalition of state and
federal agencies and non-
profit organizations working
together to establish a migra-
tory flock of whooping
cranes in eastern North
America. Each year, using
four ultralights, teams con-
sisting of pilots, a ground
crew of biologists, handlers,
vets and drivers cover up to
200 miles a day depending
on the weather. '
Operation Migration be-
gan when William Lishman,
of Ontario, successfully lead
a flock of 12 Canadian geese
on flights around his home in
his ultralight aircraft, one of
the first ultralights ever built.
Lishman is the first human to
fly with birds. The first mi-
gration was in 1993, when
Lishman and another pilot,
Joe Duff, lead 18 Canadian
geese 400 miles from Lish-
man's property in Ontario, to
the Airlie Center in Virginia.
Lishman and Duff formed
Operation Migration in 1994
to help further their ultra-
light-led migration studies.
In 1996 Columbia Pictures
released Fly Away Home,
which was inspired by Lish-
man's autobiography, Father
Goose.
The 17 cranes which land-
ed here are known as the
class of 2007. Every year
since 2001, Operation Mi-
gration has successfully
hatched, reared and led
whooping cranes on a migra-.
tion route between central
Wisconsin and the Gulf

12,000 plus'iiles with fre-.

her passenger, Gavin A.
Smith, 3, of Live Oak, was
injured.
According to FHP the go-
cart turned left off the shoul-
der of the roadway and trav-
eled approximately four feet
onto the eastbound lane of
40th Street and into the path
of Smith's vehicle. Smith
did not have a clear view of
the go-cart due to trees and
bushes along the roadway,
and could not have avoided
the accident, said FHP.
Angela M. Robinson, the
mother of the minors riding
in the go-cart, was charged
with allowing an unautho-
rized minor to drive.
Shadrick X. Robinson was


charged with no valid dri-
ver's license. Neither child
was wearing a helmet and
the 3-year-old was sitting
between the driver's legs
while riding in the go-cart.
"FHP wants to remind
parents and guardians to su-
pervise children when oper-
ating motorized equip-
ment," FHP Public Affairs
Officer Mike Burroughs
said. "Furthermore, it is im-
perative that parents and
guardians understand that
by state statute grassy
shoulders adjacent to a
paved roadway are consid-
ered an extension of the
road."
An update on Shadrick X.
Robinson's condition was
not available at press time.

Dasher said the crew stopped
in his field on their way to
the Chassahowitzka Refuge
in Crystal River.
The stop in Suwannee
County was not on the agen-
da, but they landed in Dash-
er's hay fields due to the
weather. "They landed at 11
a.m. that morning," Dasher
said. "My son and his friend
were working on the farm
and saw them land. They
said a man wearing a bird
suit walked toward them and
told them what was going
on." The crew consisted of
three ultralights, one Cessna,
one motor home, four sup-
port vehicles and several
crew members. Only 10
birds were with the team at
the time, with seven missing,
but by dark all but one was
safe and accounted for in the
70-foot wide pen the team
had set up.
The next morning the team
found the other crane and
they lifted off for the rest of
the journey. "Even by
chance, I am glad to provide
an agricultural hayfield for
them to land and set up
shop," Dasher said. Dasher
said altogether it was a "neat
experience."
The birds are isolated from
human intervention so they
can grow up wild. The pilots
wear an all white suit, and
when they have to handle the
young they wear a replica of
a whooping crane's head.
:The humans do niot talk
around the cranes:
The cranes return unassist-
ed to the central Wisconsin
area in early spring. There
they remain until they mi-
grate south again forthe win-
ter all by themselves. Today,
more than 40 whooping
cranes are migrating in east-
ern North America thanks to
the efforts of Operation Mi-
gt e partners in

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Tiger transcending


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
This weekend many
people will be watching
their only football game.
Some people only watch
the World Series for their
baseball fix and others
just the Final Four for
basketball. Not everyone
watches at once but at
some point this same
people watch Tiger. Not
golf, but Tiger. You need
not even mention the last
name. They know who
you mean.
Tiger won his
tournament again,
smoking the field by
eight strokes. He is now
tied with Arnie for fourth
place in most
tournaments won. Tiger


has won 43 of 46
tournaments he has lead
after three rounds. There
is no doubt he is the best
golfer ever. Baseball
makes an argument for
Ruth, Mays, Bonds, even
A-Rod. Football argues
greats by position,
Brown, Sanders, Smith,
Payton. Even basketball
argues Jordan, Russell,
Chamberlain, Johnson
and Robertson. Tiger is
better than Snead, Hogan,
Nicklaus and Palmer.
Tiger plays in an era
when there are three.U.S.
Tours, a.European Tour,
an Australian Tour, a
Canadian Tour and I am
sure a few more. The only
great non-U.S. golfers
you can name in days
gone by are Gary Player
and Greg Norman. It was
an attraction to watch
some one from Rhodesia
or Japan. Today you have
Garcia, Harrington, Els

It's been awhile since
I've submitted any of my
ramblings sol figured I
would start things off right
for 2008 by giving you a
quick rundown on what's
been going on and what's
,about to happen in the
wonderful world of bass
fishing. First off, a quick
re-cap of 2007 in no
particular order.
At the national level,
Scott Suggs became the
first angler to ever win a
cool million in one ,
tournament when he,
captured the ForrstWo
Cip at his home lak'iii
Arkansas. The B.A.S.Sl
record books were
shattered (again) when
Steve Kennedy sacked up
122-14 pounds of bass over
four days at California's
Clear Lake, which
unfortunately bumped
Palatka angler Preston
Clark off the top of that list.
Ranger Boats unveiled
their newest model, the
Z520, which is said to be
one of the most innovative
bass boats to ever come
about. Skeet Reese won
the B.A.S.S. Angler of the
Year award after a tight
race with the immortal
Kevin VanDam, while Jay
Yelas won the FLW Angler
of te Year. Several
Florida anglers qualified

NASCAR NEWS


In last year's 49th annual Daytona 500, Mark Martin
came about two feet short of capturing his first triumph in
"The Great American Race."
Martin's No. 01 U.S. Army Chevrolet was nosed out by
Kevin Harvick's No. 29 Shell Pennzoil Chevrolet by .020
seconds, the closest Daytona 500 finish since the advent of
computer scoring in 1993.
For the upcoming 50th running of the Daytona 500 on
Sunday, Feb. 17, Martin.will try for the 24th time in his
career to win the Daytona 500 as he will drive the No. 8
U.S. Army Chevrolet for Dale Earnhardt Inc.
He hopes that his Dale Earnhardt Inc. crew will give him
the opportunity to raise the gold Harley J. Earl trophy.
'"This is the crown jewel of a NASCAR driver's career,"
Martin said. "It was a tough pill to swallow to et it slip out
of my fingers last year, on one hand. On the other hand, it


was really a privilege to have a shot at it. I want to thank
everybody on that team for giving me a crack at it.
'To ask for that to happen on the one hand again this
year wouldn't be too much to ask for on the other hand it's
an awful lot to ask for. So if I can have a chance at it, that
would be great. To pull it off, I can't describe what it would
mean."

"This is the crown jewel of a NASCAR
driver's career," Martin said. "It was a
tough pill to swallow to let it slip out of
my fingers last year on one hand. On
the other hand, it was really a privilege
to have a shot at it."


Keselowski ready to make his mark


The audition is over for Brad
Keselowski. Now it's time to focus
on the task at hand.
In 2007, as a "try-out,"
Keselowski, drove Dale Earnhardt's
Nationwide car for three weekends.
Prior to that Chicagoland debut,
Keselowski pointed out, "We'll re-
evaluate where We are after three
races.'
This year he sits firmly and
confidently behind the wheel of the
JR Motorsports No. 88 U.S. NAVY
Chevrolet after signing a two-year
deal as he gets ready to compete in
the 2008 NASCAR Nationwide
Series.
"At this point in my career I can't
think of anywhere else I'd rather
be," Keselowski said as he waited
patiently through a rain delay
Saturday morning at Daytona
International Speedway during the
second day. of Nationwide testing.
"We know we have what it takes to
be competitive and we're looking
forward to getting JR Motorsports a
Nationwide victory. That's our goal
and that's what we're working
toward."
Keselowski, who began


preparation for the season-opening
s Camping World 300 Presented by
Chevy on Feb. 16, by posting the
fourth-fastest time in Friday's
s morning session (178.809), started
racing with a family-owned team,
moving from Quarter Midgets to
stock cars and eventually on to what
was then the Craftsman Truck
Series. And even though
Keselowski has been "around the
block" in a racecar, this year is a bit
different.
"I've been racing my whole life.".
The 24-year-old said. "StillT
consider myself an unproven driver
and as an unproven driver, you're
t always concerned about how you'll
perform. Being that Dal.e Jr.'s the
owner, that adds a bit more pressure.
But I feel like I'm ready for it. I've
gone throtigh some other deals that
have prepared me for this situation
and I feel like now is my time to
shine and make things work out."
Old man Coleman: Hard to believe
that Brad Coleman, driver of the No.
1. 27 Baker Curb Racing Ford, at 19
was the oldest driver on stage during
the lunchtime press conference.
"Uncle Brad," said 18-year-old


Landon Cassill; "Grampa Brad,"
added 18-year-old Bryan Clauson,
both who took part in the presser.
Late start: Due to inclement
weather, the Day 2 morning testing
session at Daytona International
Speedway was delayed. The first car
- Kenny Wallace in the No. 37 Baker
Curb Racing Ford finally got on
track at 1:10 p.m. more than, four
hours late.
Dad on hand: Bob Keselowski,
1989 ARCA Champion, was on site
over the weekend keeping a watchful
eye over sons Brad and Brian, both
taking part in Nationwide testing at
DIS.
More Nationwide: NASCAR
Nationwide Series drivers will
continue testing at "The World

Daytona 500 victory brings

new perspective for Harvick


Kevin Harvick knew that
the Daytona 500 was big.
But he just didn't know
how big it really was until he
won last year's 49th annual
"Great American Race."
"We've been fortunate to
win a few of the big races
and I always thought I
wanted to win the Brickyard


but I was
wrong,"
Harvick said.
"Just
experiencing
everything
from the 500
and being able
to be a part of
the weeks
after it,
everywhere
you go, that's
all anybody
wants to talk
about is
winning the
Daytona 500."

Hunting accident claims life of Bay County man


Two hunting accidents in a single
week, one in which a Bay County man
died, show that hunters should always be
mindful of safety.
On Saturday, Jan. 19, Lynn Haven
resident Matthew Curenton, 35, died
after fellow hunter and best friend
Matthew Riley, 31, shot at a deer that
stopped in the road between the pair.
Riley was 798 feet from Curenton. They
were on a private hunting lease in


Calhoun County.
The .308 caliber rifle bullet struck
Curenton in the chest. Riley preformed
CPR on Curenton until EMS personnel
arrived. Curenton was taken to Calhoun-
Liberty County Hospital where he was
pronounced dead.
. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) law enforcement
investigators said both men were wearing
hunter orange ball caps but were not


visible to each other, due to the distance.
They said lack of visibility from on-and-
off rain and hazy conditions also was a
factor.
In a separate incident, an employee of
Merrily Plantation in Jefferson County
received non-life threatening injuries Jan.
17 when a guest accidentally shot him on
a quail covey rise.
Ronald William Harrell, 41, who
handles quail.dogs for the plantation, was


hit with several number 8 pellets when
James Stynes, 58, a guest from New
York, attempted to shoot a quail that flew
toward Harrell. Harrell was driven to
Archbold Hospital in Thomasville, Ga.,
treated and released.
There have been four hunting accidents
in Northwest Florida since the beginning
of the hunting season in October. The
death of Curenton marks the first fatal
accident in the state this year.


FWC releases preliminary 2007 manatee mortality data


A preliminary report from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) indicates there Were
317 manatee deaths in state waters in
2007. The total number of carcasses
documented in Florida last year falls
below the five-year average of 355.
Watercraft strikes and red tide
continue to contribute to a high
percentage of manatee mortality,
accounting for more than half of the total
deaths in 2007 where scientists could
determine the cause of death. Necropsy
results identify watercraft strikes as the
cause of 73 deaths and red tide as
responsible for 52 deaths in 2007.


FWC researchers report that
watercraft and red tide-related deaths
were high in Southwest Florida. The
combination of these factors was
identified as a concern for this region in
the recently approved manatee
management plan.
The FWC uses trends in mortality
figures to monitor ongoing and emerging
threats to the manatee population. A
recent report analyzing threats 'to the
species, coauthored by researchers from
the United States Geological Survey and
the FWC,,points to watercraft-related
mortality as the most significant long-
term threat to the manatee population.


However, the FWC is encouraged that
the number of watercraft-related deaths
in 2007 is below the five-year average.
The FWC is committed to
conservation actions that reduce human-
caused manatee deaths. The FWC's
manatee management plan outlines
measures to address watercraft-related
mortality, as well as other threats facing
the manatee population.
To report a dead or injured manatee,
call the FWC Wildlife Alert hotline at
888-404-FWCC.

mortality research, visit

Youth Waterfowl Hunting Days set for Feb. 2-3


"Youth Waterfowl Hunting Days" are
quickly approaching. This opportunity
provides a chance for experienced
waterfowl hunters to take youths afield to
teach them duck hunting techniques and
ethics.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC), in
conjunction with the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, has established Feb. 2-3
as "Youth Waterfowl Hunting Days" to
help pass on the duck hunting tradition.
This statewide, two-day season allows
children younger than 16 years of age to
hunt, with adult supervision, waterfowl,
coots and common moorhens. Supervisors
(18 years or older) must be present and
may assist but are prohibited from hunting.
Licenses, permits and federal duck stamps
areanot required for youth hunters younger


This statewide, two-
day season allows

Sports, "span the globe." The
technology is better for everyone
but the level of competition and
numbers has increased.
When Babe Ruth hit as many
home runs as some teams. When
Brady doubles another team's
touchdown passes or Wilt


Chamberlain scores as many points
as an opposing team, they surely
dominate an, aspect of their game
for a season or even a moment.
Tiger does it almost every time he
plays. Legal betting parlors and
office pools have no Tiger

I have been fortunate enough to


see Jim Brown carry a football, Wilt
Chamberlain make a dunk, Hank
Aaron hit a homerun, but none is as
clear cut the best ever as Tiger,
even when he doesn't have his "A"

Classic, including Peter
Thliveros, Terry Scroggins
and the Lane brothers Chris
and Bobby. The term
"shakey head" became .
synonymous with bass
fishing. And last but not
least, I never once read about
a single professional bass
angler taking steroids to
improve their game. Yes,
professional bass fishing is a
sport and I will be happy to
argue that point with anyone
who wants to open that can
of worms with me!
Some random thought
about the local bass scene
during 2007: Anglers
continued to deal with
problems such as low water,
leaping sturgeons and
outrageous gas prices. The
Suwannee River remained
a relatively clear throughout


the year which made for
some tough fishing at times,
though it still took weights
between 10-15 pounds to win
most tournaments. Local
angler Matt Frier secured his
spot on the Florida Bass
Federation state team for the
second straight year by virtue
of his 13th place finish at the'
State Championship. I
competed in the first two
Southeastern Stren Series
events and learned some
valuable lessons none of
which have to do with .
catching a bass. (By the way,
I'll be happy to share some
of those lessons in future
articles this year.) I'm
definitely rambling; therefore
1 will stop with 2007 since
I'm not one to dwell in the
past. Instead, here's what to
expect for 2008.
Nationally, the
Bassmasters Classic will be


held on Lake Hartwell in
Greenville, South Carolina
on Feb. 22-24. All of the
major bass tours will return
to Florida to begin their
seasons this year. The FLW
Series will begin on Lake
Okeechobee Jan. 23, while
the FLW Tour will wait until
Feb. 28 to debut at Lake
Toho. The Bassmaster Elite
:Series anglers will be the last
to open up in the Sunshine
State on March 6 at the
Harris Chain of lakes in
Leesburg. I imagine there
will be some monster bags
weighed in at least one of
these tournaments as the
spawn should be in full
swing. If you get a chance,
head south and check out the
weigh-ins, they are very
family-oriented and should
be exciting. FLW Outdoors
launched a new fantasy
fishing program this year that


can only be described as
lucrative. Do yourself a favor
and log onto
www.fantasyfishing.com to
check it out. Even if you
don't fish you need to check
this out, trust me! There's
been no "official" word yet,
but the rumors are that
Yamaha will be .onboard as a
sponsor of BASS this year
and former emcee Fish
Fishburne may be back on
the payroll. I'm all for both
changes! Speaking of former
emcees, Ray Scott (founder
of BASS) made it public that
he's endorsing former
Arkansas governor Mike
Huckabee to be the next
President. I'm not much on
politics so we'll just leave it
at that.
Locally, the bass
tournaments on the
Suwannee are already off and
running. The North Florida


Bassmasters totally
revamped their club structure
for 2008 by scheduling all of
their monthly tournaments on
the Suwannee at Hinton
Landing in Old Town from
safe light until 3 p.m. The
tournaments will be on the
second Saturday of the
month come rain or shine.
The entry fed is $60 per boat
and members can fish alone
or with another member as
there is a five fish limit per
boat. The tournaments will
be 100 percent payback and
anyone who wants to join the
club and fish the tournaments
can sign up at the ramp. Jr.
"Gene" Dice of Perry blew
away the field at the first
tournament on Jan. 12,
racking up a five fish limit
that weighed 17 pounds! He
also had big bass of 6 1/2
pounds. The Xtreme Bass
Series will host a tournament


on the third Saturday of
every month out of Hinton
Landing as well. Their rules
are a little different and you
can get the scoop from their
website
(www.xtremefishingseries.co
in). There are some heavy
hitters at these tournaments
so you better li "
game. I know from
experience, because I was
served up several slices of
humble pie last year from
them!
I've got a lot of other
tidbits to share, but for sake
of space I'll save those for
later. Also, I will make an
effort to do a better job of
keeping everyone abreast of
the Dock Talk during 2008.
In the meantime, ifyou've
got a story you'd like to
share give me a call at 386-
590-6038 and I'll try and put
it down in black and white.

The Battle of Olustee


Re-enactment revisits the Civil War


imagine for a moment, a nearby event that combines the
re-enactment of Florida's most significant Civil War battle,
living history programs to educate and entertain, a hefty
dose of area talent'on-stage, foods to whet the appetite of
the most finicky eater, high quality arts and crafts of every
genre, and yes, even lots of things for the kids to do.
Imagine no more. All this and more, much more, will be
available during the weekend of Feb. 15-17 as the nation's
second largest annual Civil War re-enactment is hosted at
the 32nd Annual Olustee Battle Re-enactment and 30th
Annual Olustee Battle Festival in Lake City.
For those new to the area, the event commemorates the
144th anniversary of the Battle of Olustee, which
happened on Feb. 20, 1864 as a force of approximately
5,000 Confederate troops confronted 5,500 Union Army
forces. The Union forces included three regiments of black
soldiers, including the 54th Massachusetts, whose earlier
exploits at South Carolina's Fort Wagner are detailed in
the movie Glory.


The Confederate victory at Olustee was the primary
reason that Tallahassee remained as the only Southern
capitol that didn't fall to Union forces during the Civil
War.-
During the week of Olustee, re-enactors portraying
President Abraham Lincoln and Confederate General
Robert E. Lee will provide living history programs at a
wide array of area schools. The Lake City/Columbia
County Historical Museum,will present a program entitled
"Angels of Mercy" during the festival weekend as the
heroics of the group are honored in this year's festival
commemorative poster. The sutler's village at Olustee
Battlefield provides a glimpse back to the mercantile
business in the 1860s. The authentic campsites near the
battlefield provide a historic view into the living
conditions of the soldiers who fought so valiantly for their
respective sides in a war that pitted brother against brother.
More than 2,000 re-enactors from around the country
will participate in the battle on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 17,


on the site of the actual struggle. A smaller re-enactment
will be held on Saturday afternoon. The entire weekend
will .be filled with the opportunity to watch medical
demonstrations, period music, troop maneuvers, canon fire
and the chance to learn about the heroics and lessons
provided by the Civil War.
Admission to the battlefield is free on Friday as
thousands of area school children conduct field trips to the
battlefield. On Saturday and Sunday, admission is $5 for
adults and $2 for children. Pre-school kids, ages 5 and
under, are free. There is also a shuttle bus service available
on Saturday and Sunday from the Lake City Municipal
Airport and Baker County Correctional Institute. Round-
trip costs are $1 for adults and 50 cents for children. The

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

storm-related outages, they can also create hazards
for homeowners and electric utility workers.

When operating a generator:

consider taking them dona-
tions of clothes, household
goods, furniture and toys.
All donations should be in
good condition; otherwise,
they cannot 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 broken 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.

:Health to


8 Things You Didn't Know About Your Teeth


Oral health is often a window to overall health.
Evidence supports the link between poor oral health
and such conditions as stroke, premature birth and
diabetes. Other conditions, such as HIV/AIDS and
osteoporosis, may show preliminary signs in your
mouth before other areas of the body are affected.
Also, some of your daily activities or habits can
affect your oral health. Therefore, it pays to pay
attention to your teeth and gums.
Elisa Mello, DDS and clinical assistant professor
at NYU College of Dentistry who, with her husband
Ramin Tabib, DDS, established their practice, NYC
Smile Design provides this valuable insight into
dental hygiene.
1. Millions of Americans can crack a walnut with
their teeth. While most adults exert about 20 to 40
pounds of pressure when their teeth make contact,
millions of Americans exert as much as 250 pounds
of pressure on their teeth enough to crack a
walnut. These teeth grinders are known as bruxers.
Bruxism may be mild and may not even require
treatment. However, it can be frequent and severe
enough to lead to damaged teeth, jaw disorder,
headaches, and other problems. To prevent damage
to the teeth, mouth guards or appliances have been
used to treat teeth grinding and clenching.
2. Bulimia and acid reflux can destroy tooth
enamel. Many people suffering from bulimia are
able to hide the disorder from others but it is more
difficult to keep it a secret from your dentist.
Enamel erosion is a major sign of bulimic behavior.
And acid reflux, whereby stomach acid flows into
the esophagus and mouth, can cause tooth and gum
erosion.
3. Swimming in overly chlorinated pools can wear
away the enamel in frequent swimmers. Fluoride
treatments can be given to help keep the teeth
strong. Swimming with a well-adapted and custom-
fitted mouth guard, which can minimize exposure of
teeth to chlorine, also helps.
4. Soda and citrus drink overuse can be caustic to
tooth enamel. The average American drinks more
than 53 gallons of soft drinks each year, more than
any other beverage, including milk, beer, coffee, or
water. Phosphoric acid in soda and citric acid in
citrus drinks can cause tooth enamel corrosion and
the sugar can cause cavities.
5. Most people don't know they have bad breath.


Dr. Mello suggests this test: Using dental floss or a
tongue scrapper, sniff either the floss or the scrapper.
If your mouth is clean, you won't have a telltale smell.
6. Infection and trauma can cause tooth enamel
defects. Nutritional deficiencies during infancy,
antibiotic use such as tetracycline, high fever, and
trauma can all lead to tooth enamel irregularities such
as pitting.
7. Eighty- percent of Americans over the age of 35
have some form of gum disease. It can range from
simple gum inflammation, called gingivitis, to serious
disease that results in damage to the bone. In
gingivitis, the gums become red and swollen. They,,.
can bleed easily. Untreated gingivitis can lead to
periodontitis, in which the gums pull away from the
teeth and form pockets of infection. If ignored, the
bones, gums and connective tissue supporting the
teeth are destroyed.
8. One in four adults age 60 and older has lost all of
'his/her teeth. A good oral hygiene program should
include twice daily brushing, flossing, eating a
balanced diet, limiting between-meal snacks, and
regular visits to your dentist for professional cleaning
and oral exams.
New York based restorative and cosmetic dentists
Drs. Mello and Tabib emphasize that treatment for
these oral healthcare problems can range from simple
cosmetic services such as teeth-whitening to extensive
full-mouth reconstruction. But remember that an
ounce of prevention is definitely worth a pound of
cure.
