Failure to make the grade could

mean big losses for the district


By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com
Students in Suwannee County
Schools are gearing up for the
Florida Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test (FCAT) and there's
plenty at stake this year.


Cheryl Mae Brinson, director of
assessment and curriculum spe-
cialist for the district, said the state
is imposing increased penalties
this year, including withholding 8
percent of the district's general
fund, due to Suwannee Intermedi-
ate School's failure to make Ade-


quate Yearly Progress (AYP) three
years in a row,
Brinson said if any Title 1
school in the district (such as SIS)
fails to make AYP two years in a
row, it is designated a School In
Need Of Improvement (SINI) and
becomes subject to corrective ac-
tion by the state. The first year a
school is given the SINI designa-
tion, the district loses 20 percent

Suwannee County picks Huckabee, Edwards


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
See a future edition of the De-
mocrat for a report on the fiscal
impact of Amendment 1 on lo-
cal government.
Amendment 1, the property


tax measure on Tuesday's bal-
lot, failed to pass in Suwannee
County. Voters turned it down
52.7 percent to 47.2 percent.
However, the measure passed
statewide with 64.1 percent of
the voters, saying yes and 35.9
percent saying no. The propos-


al, a state constitutional amend-
ment, needed 60 percent ap-
proval to pass.
In the presidential primary,
Mike Huckabee took the Re-
publican vote in Suwannee

Craun


Submitted
Christopher L. Craun, an attorney
based in Lake City, has announced his
candidacy for the position of Circuit
Court Judge, Group Four currently held
by the retiring circuit judge, the Honor-
able John W. Peach.
Craun will bring compassion and
fairness to the bench. He firmly be-


lives court cases are more than files
and words on paper, and that they are
about real people's lives. Legal issues
are important to each person who is re-
quired to resolve issues in court, and
most judicial decisions will affect indi-
viduals in the community for many

she's about to get even better. The
USS Constitution has endured
war, avoided the scrap yard and

million children-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. Parents consid-
er this message: Avoid smoking at home or in a
car; Caution children to stay away from second-


hand 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.

Union, school board negotiations continue


By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com

Bargaining teams for the
Suwannee County School District
and the United Teachers of
Suwannee County continued
negotiations Monday on contract
changes for the 2007-08 school
year.
Much of the discussion was
centered on possible contract
changes in insurance benefits for


retired employees. During
December negotiations Jerry
Copeland, the district's chief
negotiator, proposed changing
contract language that would
require retired teachers to pay the
full premium for their insurance
coverage. Currently, the district'
shares the cost for those who retire
after 30 years and are at least 52
years of age.
Union representatives said they
understood from their notes of the


December meeting that Copeland
had withdrawn his proposal, but
Copeland said Monday this was a
misunderstanding. Union
negotiators said they would not
agree to this proposal.
"That's a fairly big benefit to our
employees," George Bowen, the
union's chief negotiator, said
Wednesday.
Bowen said Copeland, who was
out of the office and not
immediately available for


comment, cited costs to the district
as the reason for his proposal.
According to Bowen, Copeland
said the cost to the district is
$180,000 for those currently taking
advantage of the benefit.
The teams have numerous
proposals to contract changes they
will discuss before the end of
negotiations. The next meeting is
set for Feb. 11 at 4:30 p.m. at the
district office.
Both parties agreed on a salary


package in December for a 3
percent raise retroactive to July 1
for instructional and non-
instructional personnel, a 5 percent
increase in supplement pay and a 5
percent increase for teachers with
advanced degrees. Employees
received a step increase earlier this
year.
Rhoshonda Herring, of the union
bargaining team, said the team
hopes to wrap up negotiations in
March.


First Federal adopts "No Hat, No

Hoods, No Sunglasses" program


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

First Federal Bank of
Florida is implementing a
"No Hats, No Hoods, No
Sunglasses" program along
with other Florida banks.
"We are excited about the
policy because it is going to
help better serve our
customers," Nina Heringer of
First Federal Bank's local
public relations and
marketing department, said.
"It will help protect out
employees and our
customers."
First Federal will have


signs posted in all its
branches asking customers to
remove their hats, hoods and
sunglasses before entering.
People who refuse will be
monitored closely by bank
personnel.
Law enforcement officials
say the "No Hats" program is
an effective deterrent to the
so-called "note job"
criminals. These are typically
unarmed individuals who
want to enter and leave the
institutions without being
noticed.
First Federal is one of the
first banks in the area to
implement the program.

The 1
Chris


Pinkard's Positive Perspective


By April Pinkard

They are a dying breed. Those
people you meet by chance or perhaps
not, perhaps you grew up with that
favorite aunt. You think of them as
angels on earth. Those people who go
that extra mile, and bring little
blessings that touch our hearts'.
Henry Hernandez is one of those
people. For starters, Henry sings all
the time. A respiratory therapist for 25
years, he treats every patient like they
are his only patient. Henry wasn't
always a respiratory therapist. He was
working construction in Miami and
jobs were not always available. Henry
wanted something more. "So, one day
I looked into career opportunities and
chose respiratory therapy, I went to
school for two years and here I am,"


I


he said.
I asked Henry what makes him sing
so happily all the time. He says it
seems to make the patients feel better,
and puts them at ease. So with a smile
on his face and a song on his lips,
Henry goes about his daily duties in
the hospital, and makes a potentially
life threatening and scary situation a
little easier.
Patients come into Shands at Live
Oak in many forms, but you can bet if
you are having trouble breathing,
Henry, or one of the other respiratory
staff will be there. Henry's job
changes and evolves all the time.
When he started out 25 years ago, he
dealt with breathing and things of that
nature. Now, he and his staff deal with
anything from respiratory to cardiac
situations.


I asked Henry what the hardest part
of his job is. He thought for a minute,
tears forming in his eyes, and said
"Watching people die." When asked if
he ever felt helpless, his response was
one of faith. "No, God is in control,
and everything happens for a reason.
We go through cycles and death is a
part of that cycle."
Henry says his favorite memories
are of people who recover when they
think they are too sick to go on. "It's
been a great career with no regrets, I
learn from people and their histories,
it's fascinating. One time.I met a
cameraman who worked for Elvis,
another time a ballerina who danced
for the Russian opera." So, the next
time you are sick and have to go to the
hospital, don't worry so much. Ask for
Henry, I hear he takes requests!

Attention People with Medicare













Football fever: Don't catch the wrong kind


EXTENSION UPDATE


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


Although many of us will
have the joy of experiencing
our team playing in the super
bowl, don't let improper
food holding give you a bout
of foodborne illness.
Many of the symptoms of
a foodborne illness are
similar to the flu. In many
cases people do not seek
medical attention for the
mild effects of a headache,
cramps, nausea, achiness, fever, vomiting,
or diarrhea. Eating improperly and not
getting enough sleep, may put you at greater
risk of experiencing your very own
"football fever."
Since food is an important part of any get
together, you want to make sure that you
don't serve misery along with the chips!
Start at the grocery store by selecting
canned goods without dents or bulging lids.
Check to ensure the expiration date has not
passed. You should purchase items that
need refrigeration last. When checking out,
ask that your raw meats and poultry be
placed in separate plastic bags to reduce the
risk of cross-contamination or the transfer
of bacteria from one food or surface to
another. Be prepared to get a funny look!
Many of the foods on the buffet table are
susceptible to bacterial growth. To be sure
that you aren't inviting any unwanted
guests, consider:

Set your refrigerator to ensure the food
is kept at 40 F. Usually this means about
three degrees below the desired temperature
to compensate for the opening of the door.
Make sure the freezer is set at 0 F. or
below. Use a thermometer to ensure the
refrigerator is working properly.

If you aren't feeling well purchase
ready-made items to limit contamination.
Since many of the pathogens that can make
you sick are spread through person to
person'contfact or through hand to'mouth
transmission, insist everyone involved with
the preparation or serving wash their hands
before they begin and especially after using
the restroom. Proper hand washing means
water as hot as you can stand, soap and
paper towels.


'
, f


Another way to prevent
you from being sidelined
from the festivities is to
consider purchasing
pasteurized eggs if serving a
product containing raw eggs
(i.e. Home-made ice cream
or Caesar salad dressing).
Raw eggs contain
Salmonella bacteria.
Pasteurized eggs are heat-
processed to kill harmful
bacteria. They are available
locally and there are several
types consumers can buy:
o Pasteurized whole eggs
in the shell (found in
Styrofoam cartons in the
refrigerator section).


o Liquid, pasteurized egg products (found
in cardboard cartons in the refrigerator
section).
o Frozen, pasteurized egg products (found
in the frozen food section).
o Powdered egg whites (found in the
baking section).
If you are using a juice for some festive
punch, look for the word pasteurized on the
label. Pasteurization is a heat treatment to
kill harmful bacteria. Unpasteurized juices
must carry this warning: WARNING: This
product has not been pasteurized and
therefore, may contain harmful bacteria that
can cause serious illness in children, the
elderly, and persons with weakened immune
systems. If you are not sure whether a
juice has been processed either don't use the
, product or boil it to kill any harmful
bacteria.
Don't get lazy at halftime watching the
great commercials and forget about the food
sitting out on the counter. If you are
serving food buffet-style, use warming
trays, chafing dishes or crock-pots to keep
hot foods hot. Keep cold foods cold by
putting serving trays on crushed ice. Do-not
let food remain at room temperature for
more than two hours. Once you hit the two-
hour time clock, you need to throw food out
that has been at room temperature.
Also, do not add new food to serving
dishes that are already in use. Instead, use a
clean platter, serving dish, and utensil each
time you re-stock the buffet.. If you follow
these simple guidelines, your party will be a
true winner!
For more information on how to keep
your team safe, contact Katherine at the
UF/IFAS Suwannee County Extension
office at 1302 11th St. SW, in Live Oak next
to the Coliseum or call 386/362-2771.

MAYOR'S

CORNER


BY SONNY


($1,375,000). Half of this will be paid imme-
diately with the other half coming when the fa-
cility goes on-line. This'money will go to-
wards paying for the second phase of the sew-
er plant that is already being planned. The City
of Live Oak will own and operate the sewer
and water facility at the prison site. This will
require an additional employee/operator and
operation and maintenance costs for things
such as chemicals, electricity and system re-
pairs. These costs can be high but the good
news is the city will be compensated for these
expenses in utility fee payments.
The Suwannee Correctional Institution will
pay per month to the City of Live Oak $33,000
for water and $39,000 for sewer services to .op-
erate and maintain the water and sewer facili-
ties. This is a total payment of $72,000 per
month in fees. When the annex in phase two
comes on board, this will add another $48,000
per month for a, total of $1.440,000 pe- ear.:!
, Now, don't get the idea that this is all gravy,
it's not. Again, cost and expenses will come
out of these dollars but a considerable chunk
will be available to the general revenue of the
sewer and water system and save you, the res-
idents of Live Oak, tens of thousands if not
hundreds of thousands of dollars. As I told you
in my last Mayor's Comer, this will have a
tremendous future impact out US 90 east. The
water line will have hydrant tees in the line for
future fire hydrants. This will enable residen-
tial and business access to the city waltr and
sewer services.
The city's plate is filled with many other is-
sues that are demanding tremendous time and
effort. As I have previously relayed to you, the
new sewer plant just came on line with the
prison using a large amount of this capacity.
When a facility reaches 80 percent of its ca-
pacity, DEP regulations require the city to be-
gin plans for a new facility upgrade. This
process has begun. The city has made applica-
tion for another State Revolving Fund loan in
the amount of $17.5 million. We have already
been placed on the fundable list. The city will
be eligible for monies when they become
available. This is a low interest loan that usu-
ally runs around two (2) percent. The council
has approved hiring a construction manager to
build the new facility. Eutaw Utilities, our en-
gineers, have been directed to begin the draw-
ings for the facility. Administration has begun
developing a strategy to acquire assistance
funding to lower our cost. This is what we did
with the new plant. Of the $13,744,318 price
tag, you, the residents of Live Oak, will pay
only $594,318 spread over-a twenty (20) year
period. Thank you, City Administration.
The City of Live Oak is also in the process
of rehabbing the city water system. A new well
field, treatment plant, water tank and other im-
provements are in the plans in the amount of
between four and five million dollars. DEP has
cited the city well fields for being "under the
direct influence" of surface water contamina-
tion. No, you are not drinking bad or contami-
nated water. Your water is monitored hourly
and appropriate measures are taken to ensure
you a safe supply of water. This condition just
requires a greater degree of treatment. Council

talked about "a recession." It asks, "What is a
recession?" The definition of a recession is: A
period of slow economic activity. It-entails
two back to back quarters of declining or neg-
ative gross domestic product growth. Accord-
ing to the National Bureau of Economic RIe-
search, income, employment, industrial pro-
duction and retail sales suffer significant de-
clines.
It seems to me with the minimum wage be-
ing under $7 per hour, and the price of every-
thing else skyrocketing like crazy, that this
could be causing the problem. By everything
else I mean gas, groceries and restaurant
prices. Minimum wage will barely put two
gallons of gas in your car. It won't even buy a
gallon of milk and a dozen eggs.
My wife and I work very hard 40 hours a
week and still have trouble making ends meet.
We have put off paying at least one bill a
monthto put gas in the car or buy groceries.
They talk about sending people tax relief but
what a joke. It is just an advance on money
you might have gotten back at the end of the
year and in the end it just makes your tax re-
fund smaller or you may even end up having
to pay.
Also, they have these "payday advances"
which I feel should be outlawed. Sure it does-
n't seem so bad if you're in a really tight place
but by the time you pay ,it back what kind of
interest rate have you paid?
I feel that minimum wages should increase
to somewhere around $9-15 an hour or prices
need to come down and I mean quickly, other-
wise, we can forget about a recession and look
forward to a depression!
Sincerely,
Greg Ivie

The crew officially began
on the project last October,
but major work isn't sched-
uled until February.
While the USS Constitu-

every few years, the current
project is an extensive ;
restoration that will replace
the main deck.
Flana'gan said the ship
has experienced water intru-
sion, decay and some struc-
tural deformation. He said a
portion of the work will be
focused on returning the
ship to its 1812 configura-
tion for historical accuracy.
The task is expected to take
3-4 years.

Though Flanagan majored
in historic preservation at
Savannah College of Art
and Design, it was his
woodworking skills that
helped him land the job. His
love for the art of building
was sparked by a high
school teacher that gave him
the task of building a boat.
For his senior project in
J.W. Hill's engineering
class, he single-handedly
built a 22-foot steam boat.
The project took him most
of the year to complete.
After graduation Flanagan
sold the boat for $2,500.
"It was designed for a
five-horse power steam en-
gine that could be fired by
poal or propane," Hill said,
adding the engine was never


added. "It was one of the
most ambitious projects that
came through the class."
Hill said Flanagan was a
talented boat builder and he
is excited he got the job
restoring the USS Constitu-
tion.
"It's probably the most fa-
mous ship in the entire
world. What an honor to
work on such a thing," Hill
said.
Flanagan also took a few
furniture building and
woodworking classes in col-
lege and has built several
pieces of furniture.
He said during his career
he wants to combine his in-
terests in history, architec-
ture and construction to re-
store historical properties.
Flanagan lives in
Somerville, Mass.

There has been much atten-
tion given lately on our na-
tion's current "credit crisis". As
a country and as individual cit-
izens, we are experiencing
overwhelming debt. At Three
Rivers Legal Services (TRLS),
we receive many questions
from concerned citizens re-
garding debt, debt collection
practices and other such issues.
This article will address the
topic of what happens to per-
sonal debt when a person dies?
When moneys are borrowed
the loan is either secured or un-
secured. The classic examples
of a secured debt are a car and
a home. Everyone knows that
if ypu don't make your car pay-
ments the creditor will likely
repossess the car. If you don't
make a mortgage payment,'the
mortgage holder will likely
foreclose on the property. An
,Unsecured loan is one where
there is no security for the
loan. The classic example of
an unsecured loan is a credit
card debt, like Visa and Mas-
terCard, *but it would include
debts to department stores,
gasoline cards and other such
things. This article will focus

For unsecured debts, the on
source for collecting money
owed is from the deceased's
estate, after burial expenses
taxes and other fees are paic
if there is any money left ovi


eys owed would be from the
deceased's estate, after burial
expenses, taxes and other fees
are paid, if there is any money
left over. Some frequently
asked questions include the
following:
Does the surviving spouse
owe the debts of the deceased?
Reportedly, creditors are
telling widows and widowers
that they are responsible for
their spouses' debts. We at
TRLS are of the opinion that
unless that surviving spouse
SIGNED a contract or other-
wise made themselves respon-
sible for a debt in some other
fashion, the surviving spouse
is NOT responsible for debts
of the deceased.
What happens if the person
dies while the lawsuit is pend-
ing? When a party to an action
dies, unless a person is substi-
tuted in the lawsuit in his or
her place, within 90 days after
the court is informed of the
death, the case should be dis-
missed as to the deceased par-
ty.


What if the person dies be-
fore a judgment has been ob-
tained and before a lawsuit has
been instituted upon a unse-
cured debt and no probate es-
tate has been opened? The an-
swer is that a creditor must sue
the deceased debtor by
ly serving a 'personal rep-
S resentative' of the
debtor. Florida Statute
733.710, entitled "Lim-
d, stations on claims
er. against estates," pro-
vides that an action
cannot be instituted
against a deceased person or
his estate more than two years
after death.
Generally speaking, the col-
lection of unsecured debts
from a deceased person is
problematic for creditors, but it
can be done; a surviving
spouse is NOT responsible for
the debts of the deceased
spouse; and NO claims can be
made against a deceased per-
son or his estate two years af-
ter death.
The foregoing is provided
by the lawyers at Three Rivers
Legal Services, Inc., a non-
profit corporation, which re-
ceives funds from various lo-
cal agencies and individuals,
as well as from the federal
government through Legal
Services Corporation (LSC).
For specific advice on your
particular situation, we suggest
that you consult with a lawyer
of your choosing. If you can-
not afford a lawyer, you may
call your local legal services
office to find out if you qualify
for free legal assistance.

Animals shot

by owner

Ira Mikell
Special to the News
A Mayo resident was enjoy-
ing the afternoon at her resi-
dence, 171 SW Oakdale Rd.,
when she was attacked Jan.
27 by several of her son's
black and white pit bulls that
had gotten loose from their
pen on the back of the proper-
ty.
When Lafayette County
Sheriff's Office and Lafayette
Emergency Medical Services
personnel arrived at the scene,
they found Rebecca Wimber-
ly, 58, at the door of her
greenhouse covered in blood
from severe lacerations on her
arms and legs, according to
the LCSO incident report. She
lost a great deal of blood,
causing discoloration in her
feet and lips, according to re-
ports.
Benjamin Wimberly, the
owner of the dogs, shot and
killed the animals that got
loose, said authorities. Rebec-
ca Wimberley was transported
by helicopter to Shands at UF.
In addition to her wounds, she
was treated for rabies as a
precautionary measure. An
update on her condition was
unavailable at press time.

Ira Mikell
Special to the News
The Lafayette County
School Board unanimously
adopted a resolution in protest
of a proposed Florida Depart-
ment of Education revision of
the science portion of the
Sunshine State Standards at a
special meeting on Jan. 25.
According to Fred Ward,
Lafayette County superinten-
dent of schools, FDOE is con-
sidering new standards which
would make the teaching of
evolution mandatory in every
school and to disallow the
teaching of any other explana-
tion about how the earth, uni-
verse, and man came into exis-
tence.
"The new Sunshine State
Standards for Science no longer
present evolution as theory but
as scientific fact," Robert
Koon, chairperson, said.
At this time, a copy of the

draft of the revised Sunshine
State Standards is unavailable to

time in December of 2007,
FDOE allowed the public to
view the draft and submit their
comments. After the comment-

removed the link to the docu-
ment.


FDOE will rule on the matter

Williams


Miss Florida,

Kylie Williams,

makes it to top

15 in Miss

America pageant

By Melody Lee
Special to the Democrat
After a practice run on the
red carpet and a question-and-
answer session with the advi-
sory board on the last episode
of Miss America: Reality
Check, the girls were ready
for the grand finale. On Fri-


day, Jan. 25, the advisory
board celebrity stylist Jeanie
Mae, US Weekly editor Dina
Sansing, and celebrity pho-
tographer Mark Liddell an-
nounced the three contestants
they thought had updated
their looks and attitudes the
most.
On Saturday, Jan. 26, fans
of Miss Florida Kylie
Williams and the other 51
contestants gathered around
their television sets to watch
the Miss America pageant live
from Planet Hollywood Re-
sort and Casino in Las Vegas.
Host Mark Steines from ET
began announcing the 15 fi-
nalists as the fans waited to
see if their favorite was cho-
sen. Finally Florida fans
heaved a sigh of relief when
Williams' name was called.
But to their disappointment,
she was eliminated in the next
round.
Williams was the first run-
ner-up for the Quality of Life
Award, which recognizes
those contestants who excel in
their commitment to commu-
nity service. The award is
based on their involvement in
their own personal platform
issue and the Children's Mira-
cle Network, the national plat-


form of the Miss America Or-
ganization.
Through Realistic Support
for Our Troops, Inc., Williams
has tried to bridge the gap of
understanding between mili-
tary and civilian arenas. She
has helped organize care
packages for soldiers overseas
and spoken, to veterans'
groups about the healthcare,
pensions, and disability they
are entitled to. Williams has
visited current military mem-
bers and veterans at several
locations, including an Iraqi
Combat Reenactment Camp,
Tyndall Air Force Base and
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Miss Michigan Kirsten
Haglund won the prestigious
pageant. Miss Indiana Nicole
Rash, Miss Washington Elyse
Umemoto, Miss Virginia
Hannah Kiefer, and Miss
North Carolina Jessica Jacobs
were the runners-up.
Williams will continue
reigning as Miss Florida until
June. After her term is up, she
will return to Florida State
University.

also tested the students' knowl-
edge about the history of Arbor
Day, the scientific names of the
trees, and why we observe the an-
nual event. "Arbor Day commem-
orates the many benefits trees pro-
vide for people and communities
and is typically honored by planti-
ng trees in neighborhoods, parks,
and places where people come to-
gether," Marshall said.
The students were excited about
planting the trees as evidenced by
the broad smiles on their faces.
Some of them remarked that it
was fun and enjoyed the hands-on
learning experience. According to
Marshall, this was the first time
LCA's BETA club had participated
in the event.


of every teacher implementing
the Sunshine State Standards in
their classrooms and have ob-
served how effective they are in
improving test scores as well as
every student's ability to learn
and retain that knowledge.
The meeting, called for the
purpose of voting on the resolu-
tion, lasted about 15 minutes.


)or Day
Lafayette High School students
also participated by planting cy-
press and oak trees on campus
Last year, during Arbor Day,
Lafayette County Forestry, assist-
ed by'the Mayo Correctional Insti-
tution inmate work crew, planted a
variety of trees at the town park as
well as at each of the trash collec-
tion sites scattered throughout the
county.
Arbor Day has been observed
since 1874. Its founder, J. Sterling
Morton of Nebraska, loved nature
and its beauty so much that he
kept a detailed journal of his ob-
servations. According to Marshall,
over one million trees were plant-
ed in Nebraska during the first Ar-
bor Day observance in 1874.

Farm Bureau to participate in "Food Check-Out Week"


Ira Mikell
Special to the News
Farm Bureau is well known for its
dedication to preserving and protecting
agriculture, as well as helping farmers
harness new and safe methods of pro-
ducing and harvesting their crops. The
organization is also involved in a vari-
ety of projects aimed at benefiting the


communities in which they serve.
This year, the Lafayette County
Chapter of Farm Bureau will be partici-
pating again in the annual "Food

will be Land, who participated last
year.
According to the Florida Farm Bu-
reau, the purpose of the event is to re-
flect upon the importance of agriculture
in our lives as we collect food items to
give to those who are unable to afford
one of the most basic necessities to sus-
tain life. "We remain concerned that


some Americans cannot afford to buy
the food they need, but we are proud of
the role Florida farmers play in produc-
ing the most affordable food in the
world," Florida Farm Bureau said.
Every year, Farm Bureau partners
with the Ronald McDonald House to
make "Food Check-Out Week" possible
by giving back to the community.

of its Title 1 funding. The
year after that the state starts
withholding federal funds
from the district.
Suwannee County had
$303,732 of its Title 1 funds
re-allocated for supplemen-
tal educational services to
provide free tutoring to stu-
dents in low-performing
groups.
Though SIS has become a
SINI school, Brinson said it
is not due to the school's
lack of overall performance.
SIS earned a "B" last year,
the second highest grade in
the district. The school,
however, did not meet AYP
because two subgroups at
the school African-Amer-
icans and economically dis-


advantaged students did
not make sufficient gains on
the reading and writing por-
tions of the test.
Suwannee High also
failed to achieve AYP three
years in a row, but because
the school doesn't receive
Title 1 funds it wasn't desig-
nated an SINI school.
AYP is a requirement from
the federal No Child Left
Behind (NCLB) Act, which
measures progress and fo-
cuses on closing the achieve-
ment gap for all children.
Though meeting AYP isn't
based on FCAT grades
alone, the test is one means
of measuring achievement.
Brinson said SIS is work-
ing hard to change its status.
"We have made a great
deal of progress this year at


THE NIGHT BEFORE THE TEST
A message from Superintendent Walter Boatright
We encourage parents to provide nutritious breakfasts
and ensure their children go to bed early, get a good night's
rest and plenty of exercise every day. This is extremely im-
portant when students are preparing for major exams such
as FCAT and other related assessments. These actions help
students perform their best on classroom requirements and
exams. Teachers, staff and students have worked hard on
standards to be tested on the upcoming FCAT, and we want
students performing at their full potential.

County with 12.2 percent,
followed by John McCain
12.1 percent. For. the De-
mocrats, John Edwards took
Suwannee with 23.3 percent
of the votes and Hillary
Clinton took second with
20.1 percent.
Statewide, John McCain
took the Republican vote
with 36 percent with Mitt
Romney right behind with
31 percent. Hillary Clinton
defeated Barack Obama 49.7
percent to 33 percent.
No Democratic delegates
are being awarded in Flori-
da, however. The Democrat-
ic National Committee
chose to penalize Florida for
moving the Democratic pri-
mary to an earlier date than
originally scheduled.
The turnout here Tuesday
was 39 percent of the 23,409
voters. This is a good turnout
for a presidential primary for
Suwannee. The last primary
held here in 2004 showed
only a 9 percent turnout.
"It's a shame we get excited
over 39 percent, wish it was
100 percent, but it was a
good turnout," Supervisor of
Elections Glenda Williams
said Wednesday. She noted it
was especially a good
turnout despite the fact that
the Democrats' votes will
not count.
Williams said she received
several complaints from vot-
ers with minor party affilia-
tions because they cannot
vote for a presidential candi-
date in the Florida primary.
These voters can only vote
for amendments or questions
on the ballot. According to
Florida law, "only voters
who are registered members
of the two major political
parties [Republican and De-
mocrat] may vote for their
respective party's candidates


in a primary election."
Williams said her office
sends out letters before
every primary so that they
are aware of the rules..


SIS," she said. "We expect
that this year we will make
AYP."
The writing portion of the
FCAT will be administered
in February, and teachers and
students are gearing up for
the challenge. Vanessa Men-
hennett, a 10th grade teacher


at SHS, has been working all
year to give her students the
skills they'll need to do well
on the test.
She said students took an
FCAT pre-test earlier in the
year and she analyzed the
data to determine areas
where her students needed to


improve. The tests showed
students needed to work on
vocabulary, sentence struc-
ture and combining sen-
tences to prepare for the
writing portion of the test.
"We learn through scav-
enger hunts," she said, not-

By Tom Daniels

Not since the advent of
the washing machine
have women been so
delighted. The almost-end
of the football season.
The All-Star game is all
that remains and-they
don't even fill the stands.
There is a new football
league on the horizon but
for now we're safe.
Eli Manning will be the
first brother to follow a
brother (Peyton) as a
starting Super Bowl
quarterback and he isn't

Williams, who is i"
brother, will be one of the
presenters of the
Lombardi Trophy after
the game. Williams was a
tremendous athlete from
Grambling who toiled for
the Bucs, but brought a
Super Bowl victory to the
Washington Redskins, as
their first black
quarterback. The Skins
ironically were the last
team in the NFL to have
an African-American
player. He was Bobby
Mitchell, check that, Hall
Of Fame Bobby Mitchell,
who still works public
relations for the
Redskins. Williams will
be a salute for Black
History Month,
Grambling University, the
NFL and maybe more
importantly the USA.

West beats East in all-star game


Led by Suwannee's

Tommy Chambers, West

squad posts 7-0 victory

By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

The West all-stars took home a 7-0 win Jan. 21, in the
inaugural Baker Sports Columbia Youth Football
Association all-star football game. Ten Suwannee Bulldog
seniors were on the roster.
"For the first time we were real excited to %win, it was
just a fun week for all of us," said Suwannee High head
coach Tommy Chambers of the game and the week of
practice leading up to it.
The only score of the game came from Lafayette High
linebacker and West Stars Defensive Player of the Game
Kyle Pearson, who picked up a defense fumble and ran for
a 48-yard touchdown. The extra point was added by
Branford High's Brett Suggs.
Suwannee receiver John Hill caught five passes for 44
yards. Jason Cherry and Collis Givens both did a good
job defensively, Chambers said. "Defensively all kids
played real well," Chambers added, noting that that
defensive back Stephen Cherry hit a running back so
hard, you could hear it in the stands.
West Stars Offensive Player of the Game Chad
Hempstead, Lafayette High quarterback, passed for 44
yards and one interception.
The game was originally scheduled for Friday, the 18th,

lead the Pats to an
undefeated season. Unlike
his predecessor Drew
Bledsoe or his opponent,
Brady was not the number
one pick of the NFL draft.
Brady was a sixth round'
pick out of Michigan. The
Super Bowl has had seven
former "first picks" start
the game. Almost half of
them, E. Manning, Elway
and Plunkett, do not
represent the teams that
drafted them. P. Manning,
Bledsoe, Aikman and
Namath are the others.
Craig Morton is the only
quarterback to start for two


different teams, the
Cowboys and the Broncos.
Earl Morrall of Miami fame
was a starting QB for the
Baltimore Colts. John
Elway has the most starts,
five, while Montana,
Staubach, Kelly and
Bradshaw have four each.
Most losses: Kelly (four)
followed by Fran Tarkenton
and John Elway with three
each. Bradshaw and
Montana were never beaten
as Super Bowl
quarterbacks. Brady has
three wins. The University
of Alabama has sent three
winning QBs to the Super
Bowl but you will have to
think about them for


awhile. California claims
Morton, Kapp and
Ferragamo.
The Giants will be
appearing in their fourth
Super Bowl with victories
against Denver and'Buffalo.
and a loss to the Baltimore
Ravens. This is the fifth
Super Bowl for New
England. They lost to
Chicago and.Green Bay
and beat St. Louis, Carolina
and Philadelphia. Tony
Eason was their first Super
Bowl QB.

Madison High, with seven players on the
roster, was unable to attend, however, due to

that three Cowboys were supposed to be on
the offensive line for the West Stars.


Suwannee, Branford, Bell, Lafayette,
Dixie County, Taylor County, Trinity

Bradford and Lake City Christian players
and coaches.
Chambers said he wants to thank the
Columbia Youth Organization for staging
the game.

Integrity

The word "integrity" comes from the Latin word
:*m "integritas," meaning soundness or wholeness, and
this is the same word from which we get the word
"integer." A person of integrity, like an integer, is
complete and whole. The American Heritage ..,
.Dictionary defines integrity as: "n. 1. Steadfast
adherence to a strict ethical code. 2. The state
of being unimpaired; soundness. 3. The quality
or condition of being whole or undivided;
completeness." The first definition, steadfast
.. adherence to a strict ethical code, is what we
usually think of when we think of a person with
integrity. That is, we think of someone who will
not compromise their principles for some
S temporary gain or advantage. And although this
definition seems to suggest that a person of ,
integrity might be overly rigid in adhering to j
their ethical code, the third definition, the quality
or condition of being whole or undivided, more
aptly suggests that the person of integrity is
someone who is of one mind and has an undivided
spirit. You cannot be'a person of integrity and serve
both God and mammon. The calmness and composure
that is the hallmark of the person of integrity comes
0 naturally from having an undivided spirit and being wholh
dedicated to right conduct.
7,-w Hear, 0 Israel The Lord our God, the
0 Lord is one; and you shall love the Lord
your God with all your heart, and with
all your soul, and with all your mind,
and with all your strength.

How to have



a fair fight


Mark Trammell Trio makes


first-ever appearance in Madison


Heart Matters
By Angie Land

"Let's have a fair fight." If
there are rules for this in
sports, surely we need some
in our relationships! We
often believe that if we are
not having conflict we are in
great shape and we tend to
measure the health of our
relationships by whether or
not we have had a
disagreemeAt or an argument
lately. When we are having
conflict, we start thinking,
"If we could just stop
fighting, our relationship
would be great!" In reality,
a great relationship is not
one with no conflict, but one
where issues get resolved.
Accept the fact that you are
two different people, and
you will have differences of
opinions. You will
disagree...you will argue.
Avoiding conflict for the
sake of peace never brings
peace...at least for the one
who is doing the avoiding,
and it sends the message to
the other person that what
they are saying or doing is
okay, so there is never a
need for change.
In relationships, a
"healthy" fight is a way of
two people disagreeing
while understanding that the
goal is to stay connected. It's
not about being right,
proving wrong or fixing the
other person, and this can be
tough to remember in the
heat of an argument. Ever
notice how many of your
fights are the same over and
over? You have been here
so many times; you know.
exactly what the other is
going to say. This is a signal
that the issue has not been
resolved...and as you repeat
the same arguments, you are
pretty sure you won't be
finding the answer this time
either.
So, if we understand that
conflict will be a part of our
relationships, let's learn how
to fight fair with the goal of
remaining connected:
First, commit to being
direct and specific. Vague,
indirect accusations give the


other person nowhere to,
begin resolution...they know
something is wrong, but not
sure if you agree with them
about exactly what the
problem is. In Matthew
18:15, the Bible says, "If
your brother sins against
you, go and show him his
fault, just between the two of
you..." When we are
specific, the problem is
exposed, and hopefully the
answers will be easier to
find. Also, tie the problem
to how it is hurting the
relationship instead of just
being critical. Saying
something like, "When you
aren't honest with me, it
makes it hard to trust you,"
works better than "You
never tell the truth...you are
just a liar!"
To maintain a fair fight,
keep to the issue at hand.
When the discussion turns to
blame, defensiveness and
other issues, it is time. to stop
and refocus. "We're getting
sidetracked...what is really
important here is that we are
able to trust one
another...what will help
solve this problem?"
No hitting below the
belt.... being angry is part of
being passionate. That is
why those we love the most
can drive us so crazy...but
anger does not give us
license for being sarcastic,
using foul language or
sending the other person on
a guilt trip. This will resolve
nothing...and remember the
goal is to remain connected.
Agree beforehand that if the
argument escalates, the
conversation will end and be
addressed at another time.
Finally, remember that
disagreements are part of a
healthy relationship. They
don't have to be a big deal,
but they will be if we try to
avoid them or allow them to
escalate. When you argue,
talk about it as it happens: "
I know we are both mad
right now, but I want you to
know that I love you, and I
love that I can disagree with
you and still know that you
love me." This is a huge
step toward resolving issues
and keeping our hearts
connected...and
remember...our hearts;
matter!
Blessings,
Angie

The Mark Trammell Trio

Jellystone Park, beginning at 7 p.m.

baritone voice.

Trammell, as a member of the
Kingsmen, shared the stage with one

loved tenor singers, Ernie Phillips.

Trio. Like the others, Eric is very
ministry-minded. "It's all about the
message," he says. "I want to.be an
encouragement to people and to

share the Word through song to
unbelievers. It's very humbling, yet,
also very rewarding when someone
tells you how a song you've sung
has been inspiring to them, or
helped them in some way deal with a
problem or difficult situation."
Phillips has been with the trio since
its beginning.
The newest member of the Mark
Trammell Trio is Dustin Sweatman.
Dustin is 22 years old and hales from.
Cumming, Ga. For the past three
years Dustin sang with the Dixie
Melody Boys. He is not only a very
talented lead singer, but is an
awesome keyboard artist as well.
Steve Hurst is a renowned
musician, instructor and mentor to
many of today's favorite gospel
artists. He has been involved in
ministry for over thirty years. Steve
loved music as a child and furthered
his training throughout his
schooling. He graduated from
George Peabody College for
Teachers of Vanderbilt. Following
graduation he began working as a
music instructor for groups and
soloists as well as working in music
schools around the country. He
started the Steve Hurst School of
Music in 1992. Steve now travels
with the Mark Trammell Trio singing
selected songs on each program.
A rich history of southern gospel
music can be found within the roots
of the Mark Trammell Trio. To learn

More than enough


By David H. Matier
Doctor of Pastoral Counseling

People spend their money on a
variety of "stuff." Have you ever
noticed the amount of space in the
local grocery store dedicated to selling
pet food? The reason for this is those
in marketing know that people in this
country "spend big" when it comes to
their pets! How many varieties of
cereal were available when you were a
child? Today there is a cereal for each
child's whim: Look at the toys on the
shelves at your favorite store.
Today you can see such things as
bubble gum flavored toothpaste that
shoppers "can't live without!" The
old generic toothpaste just will not do
even though it has the same
ingredients and is less expensive.
Everybody thinks they must have "the
best." Somehow, the "most expensive
is equated with "the best."
Many families max out credit cards
during the Christmas Holidays
thinking, "We have to have the most
and the best." It is said that sharks


have feeding frenzies. It looks like
humans have spending frenzies! It
appears that it has been going on-for
some time and there seems to be no
end in sight. The mismanagement of
funds has caused the destruction of
many families. When the money gets
short'tension increases and tempers'
flare, marriages break up leaving the
children as "broken pieces" strewn all
about.
Then your pastor mentions giving;
you say, "I don't have enough money
left over after all the bills are paid" -
and get angry at the preacher. II
Chronicles 24:10 says, "...and all the
people rejoiced ("...God loveth a
cheerful giver" I Corinthians 9:7),
and brought in, and cast into the
chest." There is more to life than
getting. Some in an attempt to get
rich have nothing while others give
and give and give and have great
riches (Proverbs 13:7). Someone has-
said, "God shovels it in faster than
you can shovel it out; after all God
uses a bigger shovel!" You don't need
to be a doctor of theology to


understand that God blesses cheerful
.giving (Luke 6:38). When you give
God's way it has benefits!
Going on to II Chronicles 24:10 you
can see that "...all the people rejoiced"
and gave and in verse 11 the Elible
says, "...they set the house of God in
his state, and strengthened it." And it
goes on to say that they had more then
enough, so much so that they were
able to furnish the house of God with
the leftovers. There was more than
enough!
When you are purchasing all that
"stuff," think about first-things-first.
Give that appropriate portion back to
the Lord (if you don't know what it is,
ask your pastor) first.


My new step-counter and spiritual growth


By Derek Maul
Sometimes it's
the simplest gifts
that bring the
most joy.
Take this past
Christmas. lMy
son, Andrew.
gave me one of
those digital
"step-counter"
devices that
records how far I
walk.
It was a thoughtful gift,
because he know, I've made
great strides in the health
department this past year. My
program has been a no-frills
intervention of dog-walking and
careful eating. The two
straightforward changes have
combined to take off 20


unwanted pounds,
lower my
cholesterol, cut my
triglycerides by two-
thirds, lower blood
pressure, and


produce a resting
heart rate around 50.
Now, with the
step-counter, I can
S< be more deliberate
., in my discipline.
S: Here's how it works.
Depending on stride
length, around 2,000 steps equals
one mile. For me it's close to
1,900. With two long walks each
day and short excursions
between, I was starting at around
10.000-12,000. My goal is 50
miles a week, which means
around 14,000 steps per day.
The genius of the step-counter


is accurate feedback. Simply
knowing provides immediate
results, and the opportunity to
walk an extra 500 steps before
lunch or to add 250 tnore during
a short break more easily turns
into positive behavior when I see
the fact of it digitally displayed.
It's a principle that works
across the board. People can
lower or raise their heart rate
while watching a real-time
monitor; it's easier to maintain
45 mph when the speedometer
works; accurately measuring
calorie intake can lead to weight
loss; cars with "heads-up" fuel-
use displays get better mileage.
Ditto our family health and
spiritual lives. Recording TV use
leads to less mind-sucking;
posting a chart to plan and record
family dinners increases


togetherness; keeping a journal
of devotional time is a gteat way
to grow closer to God; hearing
the words "I love you" impacts
relationships moment by
moment.
Anything we can measure can
then be modified. Knowing
where we stand is half the battle.
So here's my challenge. Pick
one positive behavior you'd like
to increase, figure out how to
measure it, then keep records for
one week. Now you're 90
percent of the way toward your
goal. It doesn't take a lot of
personal discipline to grow
spiritually, but it does take some.
I %walk.
Blessings
Derek
