I Had A Dream


Fances Baker, a student at Suwannee Middle School, recent-
ly won the "I Have a Dream Essay Contest" to celebrate the
legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Her winning essay fol-
lows.


By Frances Baker
'I had a dream that all gang
bangers and violence will
stop. I had a dream that peo-
ple will get into Jesus more
add stop doing things that
affect people around them. I
had a dream that children
and teenagers will stay in
school and graduate from
high school and go to col-
lege to become something
like a doctor, lawyer, judge
di: whatever you want to be.
I -know you can become
somebody in life. People just
don't want to believe you are
somebody. I had a dream
that parents stop cursing
around children and start be-
ing an example of a good
Person for their children or
their child to do good. I had
a dream that all people in the
r


world get along and stop try-
ing to destroy each other. I
had a dream that the world
will become safe from
wrecks, Aids, HIV, or other
dangerous things. I had a
dream that young boys and
girls stop having babies be-
cause they are not ready for
one yet. I had a dream that
children get into more histo-
ry because they might
change something in life. I
had a dream that teenagers
and parents stop usingdrugs.
I had a dream that kids stop
disobeying their parents. I
had a dream that schools
will become better than what
they are today. I had a
dream!!!! I had a dream!!!
Maybe someday I will
change the world if I believe
in my dreams!!!

Parkinson's Disease involves body muscles
Parkinson's disease is a progressive condition affecting a person's
control of how their muscles move. INerve cells that normally
release the chemical dopamine are damaged or destroyed in
persons affected by this condition. Dopamine helps in the
transmission of signals from the brain to the muscles. Although the
cause of this condition is unknown, it is thought that genetic and
environmental factors play a role. In addition, certain drugs and
conditions may cause Parkinson's-like symptoms. Haloperidol
(Haldol) and chlorpromazine (Thorazine) are sometimes prescribed
for mental conditions that may lead to symptoms similar to those of
Parkinson's. Symptoms of Parkinson's include trembling, slowed
motion, muscle rigidity, and impaired speech.
Although there is no current cure available for Parkinson's
disease, drugs are available to treat this condition. Carbidopa-
levodpoa (Sinemet) is often prescribed. Other drugs prescribed
include the dopamine agonists such as ropinirole (Requip) and
pramipexole (Mirapex). i.. ,ilr.' (Eldepryl) inhibits an enzyme
that metabolizes dopamine in the brain, thereby preventing the
breakdown of dopamine. This medication is sometimes prescribed
in combination with Sinemet.

Jinny Wilson goes to the post office


The first post office
in the area was
called "Little River
P.O." and was south
of what is now US
90. A stagecoach
brought the mail to
L.R.P.O on
McClellen land in
1841. In the early
1900's, mail came to
Wellborn by rail.


MI~l*


By Jinny
Wilson
In the
Wellborn
post of-
fice, the
answer is
TRUE!


It is
TRUE of the people who
work in Wellborn P.O., and
it is TRUE of customers
who meet and greet each
other at the Wellborn post
office.
Another TRUTH is that
our post office is the heart-
beat of our hometown.
Most of us in our home-
town feel well, work hard,
and smile a lot. That is why,
when we meet someone
who doesn't feel well, who
cannot work hard and has
trouble finding a smile, we
are sympathetic. We want to
know how we can help re-
store their well-being ASAP.
Seven people are em-
ployed at the Wellborn post
office. Each one of them be-
lieves it is a great place to
work and told me so! They
like it because they like each
other and have found that
they work very well togeth-
er. The best part is that their
happiness is contagious.
That is why, even when we
are troubled in our own
lives, a stop at the Wellborn
post office is a pretty sure
cure for any troubles we
harbored troubles which
caused us temporary person-
al gloom.
Iva Carlton is Wellborn
postmaster. She lives in


Lake City. She worked in
Live Oak 12 years before
she came to us in 1987. It
surprises Iva too to realize
she has served here 20 years
now. She still loves us and
describes Wellborn as "a
very friendly community."
Leonard Stansel (1964-
1987) was postmaster be-
fore Iva. He built the post
office in
1966. It is
now a gov- Most

o w n e d 2. work ha

bulging 3. smile a
with han-
dling our TRUE OF
increasing
numbers of
postal cus-
tomers.
Before Leonard Stansel,
27 postmasters are listed in
the Wellborn, My Home-
town history book. The first
post office in the area was
called "Little River P.O."
and was south of what is
now US 90. A stagecoach
brought the mail to L.R.P.O
on McClellen land in 1841.
In the early 1900's, mail
came to Wellborn by rail.
The trainman tossed a sack
of incoming mail to a wait-
ing postmaster. The outgo-
ing sack of mail was at-
tached to a long pole for the
trainman to detach. Some-
times the train rolled slowly
through Wellborn station
and made the exchange
without coming to a com-


p
II
an
I

R


plete stop. Some remember
it. Today the mail exchange
is accomplished from a
parked truck that comes to
us from Jacksonville.
Cindy Stansel has lived
here all her life. She has
worked in our post office al-
most seven years. She is
clerk. In P.O. lingo she is
PMR, Post Master Relief.

from Lake City and Flo-
rence Langley (Wellborn).
They both are veterans with
the system. Together they
deliver to about 992 Well-
born households. Iva and
Cindy do the 354 P.O. box-
es. Sandy Young (Live Oak)
is Florence Langley's relief.
Michele. Brannon (Well-
born) is Dorothy Long's re-
lief. They are RCA's, Rural
Carrier Associates.
Pat Cooper likes to keep
the post office clean. She
has been on the job for nine
years. She juggles hours
with a second job at Gold
Kist so that she can continue
to enjoy everyone in this
hometown where she has
lived all her life.

Credit where

credit's due

The city's accomplish-
ments of late, as recounted
in last week's Mayor's Cor-
ner, are considerable by any
measure.
As Mr. Nobles reminds us,
the utilities deal the city se-
cured with the Department
of Corrections is 'fine
arrangement indeed: progres-
sive, farsighted and sure to
be of benefit well into the
future. We particularly ap-
plaud the decision to run wa-
ter lines along the future
route of the proposed eastern
bypass (from Lowe's to US
90 east near the city limits).
As the mayor notes, this will
prove invaluable in facilitat-
ing growth in undeveloped
areas northeast of the city.
Here's the part we find
odd. "Instead of slaps in the
face," writes the mayor,
"your administration should
be given pats on the back."
The pats-on-the-back part
makes sense. But if by
"slaps in the face" the mayor
is referring to recent criti-
cism (from within the city
council and in the pages of
this newspaper) of question-
able acts by certain city offi-
cials, we don't get it.
Live Oak city officials do
fine work, best we can tell.
But that doesn't shield them
from public scrutiny. Nor
should it. Everybody's got to
be held accountable, no mat-
ter how good they are at
their jobs.
Questions which arise con-
cerning the conduct of public
officials should be asked
aloud. That's not a slap in
the face. It's democracy in
action.

FROM OUR READERS


To the Editor:

I am writing this letter in regards to the
"Arrest Record" log that the Democrat posts
in each edition.
Is this really even necessary? After all,
anyone can simply go to the sheriff's web-
site, www.suwanneesheriff.com, and obtain
the exact information that even shows a pic-
ture of the individual and his/her charges.
This whole section of the newspaper
brings nothing but (not always though)
shame and embarrassment to the accused
and also to their family and friends. It is
nothing more than a gossip column. I also
notice that at the beginning of the "arrest
record" there is a note stating (something
along these lines) that if someone was ar-
rested and has judicial evidence of being
found not guilty or the charges were
dropped that the Democrat would be happy
to make a mention of this. Guess what, who
cares, the damage is done. I myself have
been arrested and yes, my charges were
dropped but I like most others are not going
to take off work, get proof, drop it off to the
Democrat and such because I and most peo-
ple I know would have to take off work and
lose money just to do so.
Furthermore, I hope your staff realizes
that people do have the same names and at
times "John Doe" gets arrested and later an-
other "John Doe" gets arrested. I have seen
this happen before to someone I know quite
well and that person received calls from
friends and family wondering "what hap-
pened." Maybe if the Democrat would do
what the sheriff's office does and post a
COLOR picture along with the crime and
date of birth that ONE problem could be
solved. However, I doubt that would hap-
pen because the cost to do so would be enor-


mous and have an impact on your "bottom
line."
I believe I have a better solution to the
"arrest record." Here goes: Since the same
information but better can be seen at the
sheriff's website, why don't the Democrat
stop using this space in the newspaper and
instead use that empty space on a great,
"feel good" subject? Maybe something like
"Good Deed Gone Unnoticed" (and make it
noticed for all the community to see) and
each edition post an article about a good
Samaritan done "this or that" or how "this
person overcome this" or "unselfish child
sells lemonade in neighborhood to donate to
cancer research." We all know there are
plenty of these stories out there.
All the Democrat has to do is encourage
readers to send those stories in and they
will. It beats the heck out of all the negative
fallout that comes with the local "gossip
column" which is incorrectly labeled "arrest
record."

Tim Morgan

Editor's note: The state attorney's office
confirmed that charges filed against Mor-
gan following a June 2007 arrest were in
fact dropped.


To the Editor:

After reading the Rant and Rave column
in the Suwannee Democrat, I felt the need to
respond to it.
It was obvious to me by the technical
terms used in these three articles that some-
one from city hall sent them in. I would
point out that seven or eight public meetings
were held discussing the opt-out plan. Out


of those that opted out, several were not in
the program to start with, According to our
insurance carrier those that went out were
older employees. Since the majority of the
claims paid are on older people the reason-
ing was that their departure would create
lower premiums for the other employees.
Councilman Stewart was one of those that
opposed the plan, yet when it. passed lie
chose to opt out. Councilman Thomas who
voted for the plan chose not to opt out.
The point I wish to stress is that the ma-
jority of the council did their business in the
light and not in the darkness.
Thank You,
John C. Hale
City Councilman/District 1


To the Editor:

Yes, I believe that evolution is a science;
"science fiction" that is.
You need more faith to believe that evolu-
tion is fact than creation is.
I have studied both evolution and creation
over the years and am thoroughly convinced
that this extremely complex, systematically
ordered, precision regulated body in which I
exist did not come from a "mud puddle!"
Why are we going to teach our beloved
children this profound lie?
Question? Does the Suwannee County
School Board plan to seek a resolution that
would urge the state Board of Education to
revise the New Sunshine State Standards for
Science such that evolution is not presented
as fact?
"If we don't stand for something, we will
fall for anything."
Love, peace,
Lee Wolfe

City works to relocate wells

water to all city residents.
City Public Works Direc-
tor Todd Hunt said wells
cited for UDIs are influ-
enced by the river, rainwa-
ter and stormwater runoff,
which put bacteria, solids
and particles in the water.
To decontaminate, the wa-
ter is treated extensively
through the nearby treat-
ment plant on Georgia Av-
enue. The drinking water,


he said, is safe for con-
sumption.
"Weekly, monthly and
annual samples are tested
and reviewed by the state
for accuracy," Hunt said,
adding the city meets state
and federal requirements
for water treatment.
The city is in the process
of determining a new loca-
tion for the wells to correct
the problem. Once the UDI
situation is solved, the city
will only need to add chlo-


rine to the water.
"It's not in the best loca-
tion," said City Administra-
tor Bob Farley of the cur-
rent wells.
Farley said being located
in the city makes them sus-
ceptible to pollutants, such
as oils, antifreeze, fertiliz-
ers and pesticides.
The city is looking to re-
locate the wells in an area
with roughly a 10-acre
buffer to provide protection
against such contaminants.


The city will also seek a site
where water quality is such
it won't have to include a
full-scale treatment plant.
"This will be more bene-
ficial in cost," Hunt Laid.
Once the project is com-
plete the city will cap its
current wells.
The project will cost be-
tween $4-$5 million. The
city has made application
for a low interest loan,
which is under review.


Long-term trend continues

County has seen teen birth
rates at least 17 percent
higher than the state.
Colleen Cody of the
Suwannee County Health
Department agrees that we
have a problem here. "We
do have a problem with
teen pregnancies in this
county, and it continues to
rise," she said.
Cody noted that teens
who get pregnant often drop
out of school and aren't as
productive in the work
force. Cody said that the
health department has an
abstinence program that
goes into the schools to ed-
ucate teens on teen pregq
nancy. She said pregnant


teens as young as 13 come
into her office.
Society today is very
tough for teenage girls,
most observers agree. There
is tremendous pressure and
influence from the media
and pop culture telling
young girls how to act,
what to wear and who to
hang out with. The pressure
to have sex is even more in-
tense.
Suwannee County had a
teenage female population
(ages 14-18) of 1,198 in
2006, according to the
Florida Legislature's Office
of Economic and Demo-
graphic Research. Of those,
58 gave birth.
The trend has gone up ,
and down only slightly in a


ten-year period. In 2005 the
teen birth rate per 1,000
here was 43, and in 2004,
48.6. The peak rate in the
last decade was. recorded
during 1998, when there
were 52.9 births per 1,000
Suwannee County teens.
Counties ranking higher
than Suwannee for teen
births in 2006 were Hendry

teens), Hardee (62.3), Deso-

Cameron said that most of the

were transients.
"Oftentimes these people
don't want a home to settle
down to," Cameron said. He
said that most homeless peo-

0: I'm a diabetic. Are my dental needs different
from those non-diabetilcs?
A: Yes. Regular dental checkups are Important
for everyone, But they are even more important
for people who have diabetes, a disease that can
lower a person's resistance to infection and slow
the healing process. Those two factors leave
diabetics more prone to gum disease, also called
periodontal disease. Some of the signs of that
disease are gums that have swollen, turned red
or tender and that bleed easily. Loosened teeth
are also a sign of gum disease.
Diabetics are more susceptible to gum disease
for a number of reasons, Generally they develop
more plaque, the tilm In which colonies of
bacteria develop. This may be because diabetics
generate less saliva to help wash plaque away.
Diabetics generally also have a higher sugar
level In their oral fluids, which affects plaque
build-up. They are also likely to have reduced
circulation, which can hinder the flow of nutrition
to the gums and slow healing.
Studies have shown that patients who
carefully control their diabetes under the advice
of their primary physician have less trouble with
gum disease. Nevertheless, close monitoring at
home for any changes In the mouth and regular
visits to the dentist are essential for diabetics. If
you are a diabetic, talk with your dentist about
the extra steps you should take to preserve your
oral health.

of trouble. Cameron said
many made friends with local
store clerks and socialized
with them. Some had disabil-
ity checks mailed to them at
local businesses.
The homeless camp beside
1-10 and Skeen Road was the
scene of a Jan. 23 murder in
which two homeless men al-
legedly killed a third man by
choking him and cutting his
throat. Cameron said that Ed-
ward Raymond Spencer, 41,
and Steven Michael Wells,
36, confessed to the murder
of James Flowers, 41. When
asked what the motive was,
Cameron said a fight that
broke out between the three
earlier that day had picked
back up and escalated out of
control.

Cnss'~ stor, Fred Watson, %% ho also

part of a program in which church members
pray for motorists going in and out of "the
gates of the city" (near the city limits),
based on Jeremiah 17:19. They also pray for
people near their church on US 129 S.
The program has been in place for three
years.
"When the buses come by we pray for the
school system and pray for the children that
they'd be blessed," Watson said. "When we

He said he's certified as a chaplain in
Georgia and he is working on certification
in Florida to prepare for the opening of

Criss moved to Live Oak from Nashville,
Ga., with his wife, Betty, three years ago.
He said his wife has family here and the
people are friendly.
"It's a nice town. The people are nice," he
said.
Criss retired from Chaparral Boat Compa-
ny in Nashville after 22 years. There he
built boats for 12 years, served in quality
control and worked in the woodshop.
Criss has a workshop of his own where he
builds items such as cabinets, magazine
racks and bird houses, most of which he
says he gives away.
Criss and his wife have been married for
33 years and have 11 children between
them. They also have 15 grandchildren and
two great-grands.
Though none of their children lives here,
the family enjoys get-togethers at Christmas

SPORTS COMMENTARY


History is made


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
The New England
Patriots made NFL
history. The only team to
go 18-1 and not win a
Super Bowl. They are
also the only 18-1 team to
own trademark rights on
"19-0." "If you don't win
that ring it don't mean a
thing." Unlike their
season the Patriots lost
fair and square. In respect
to the Patriots they did
man up after the game
and made no excuses for
their loss.
The Giants lived the
impossible dream and
former Giant Tiki Barber
is eating vast amounts of
crow.
Barber is the guy who


blasted Manning and
Coughlin. Barber is also
the guy who is missing a
Super Bowl ring. Eli
proved the world wrong
and the monkey is forever
off his back. The
Mannings are the only
brothers to be Super Bowl
MVP'S. David Tyree
made the impossible
catch to set up the
winning score and he
should serve as an
example. Tyree is out of
Syracuse and was drafted
by the Giants as a special
teams player about five
years ago. He is listed on
the team depth chart
usually as the fifth or
sixth wide receiver.
Although he has gone to
the Pro Bowl as a special
teams player he always
refers to himself as a
wide receiver who plays
special teams. Tyree had
three catches and a TD.
This season he had four
catches and no TDs. Tree
stayed prepared and was
ready when they called
his number.
This is Coach
Coughlin's second ring.
He was part of the Giants

A self-

confessed

tackle

junkie

Dock Talk
By Damon Wooley
Okay, I admit it. I have an
addiction. I am a self-con-
fessed tackle junkie. For
those of you that have a simi-
lar addiction, I feel your pain.
For those of you who have
resisted the pressure from the
media and your peers, con-
sider yourselves fortunate. I
haven't always been an ad-
dict. It wasn't until I started
fishing bass tournaments that
my obsession turned compul-
sive and the next thing you
know I ended up with 500
pounds of soft plastics and a
washtub full of hard baits. I
know that may be hard for
some folks to comprehend
but sadly, it is true. I guess
it's kind of like a shirt I saw
once that read "he who dies
with the most tackle, wins" or
something like that.
I've always been a sucker
for fishing lures. It doesn't
matter whether it is a new
color, new idea or anything
that "looks like it will work" I
always seem to get hooked
(no pun intended). What I've
learned (though it's taken me
almost a decade) is that I
would have been a lot better
off had I limited my tackle
supply to a select few lures.
As a matter of fact, I know of
several very successful an-
glers who rely only on one
single lure for all of their
fishing, though that's a little

February extends deer


season, duck hunting for kids


By Tony Young
If you're like me and
haven't bagged that monster
buck yet, or maybe 'you live
in the central or southern
part of the state and haven't
come to terms that deer sea-
son's over for the year, Feb-
ruary might have just what
the doctor ordered. You
see, there's a second phase
of the muzzleloading gun
season Feb. 14-24, but only
in the Northwest Hunting
Zone.
Tinmediatefy "': flowing
the close of general gun
season in the Northwest
Zone, this muzzleloading
season offers continued
deer and hog hunting op-
portunities. The best part is
it occurs during the rut in
some areas and offers the
best chance of taking a tro-
phy whitetail. For instance,
in most parts of the
Apalachicola National For-
est and in Gadsden County,
the rut's still going strong
during this time. Also, on
Eglin Air Force Base, the
rut's just coming in.
The hunt's for wild hogs
and bucks with at least one
antler five inches or more
in length above the hairline.,
On private land, the daily
bag limit is two deer. Bag
limits and antler size for
deer on wildlife manage-
ment areas (WMAs) can
differ, so check the area's
brochure before you hunt.
It's important to note no
turkeys may be taken dur-
ing this season.
On private lands, cross-
bows can be used during
this season, as well as muz-
zleloaders and bows, but
you must have the $5 muz-
zleloading gun permit to
hunt, no matter which
method of take you choose
to use.

NASCAR: Get ready for the

revolving door of sponsor names

Days of companies staying long term seem to be gone


Caraviello
By David Caraviello
NASCAR.COM
For decades they were the
brand names that fueled the
sport, in the process becom-
ing as synonymous with
NASCAR as the cars and
drivers themselves. In a rac-
ing series where change oc-
curs at a furious pace, Crafts-
man, Busch and Winston
were constants, companies
:that brought recognition, sta-
bility and cash. Those three
title sponsors, with a com-


bined 71 years of service be-
tween them, helped form
modern NASCAR. And after
next season, the last of them
* will be gone.
Within a span of two
years, all three of
NASCAR's national divi-
sions will experience name
changes, an oddity in a sport
where the title sponsorships
have typically endured
through generations. On
New Year's Day the Nextel
Cup, which replaced the
Winston Cup four years ago,
will be succeeded by the
Sprint Cup because of a
merger within the wireless
industry. The sport's junior
circuit, known for 26 years
as the Busch Series, becomes
the Nationwide Series. And
after 2008 the Craftsman
Truck Series, the only name
by which that rough-and-
tumble tour. has ever been
known, will be re-branded
by a company yet to be de-
termined.
These are not small


changes, not in a sport where
"Winston Cup" still escapes
the lips from time to time,
even four years after the cig-
arette giant got out of the
game. Traditionalists, for
whom Busch and Craftsman
have become embedded in
the lexicon, will surely suffer
their tongue-tied moments.
And the casual sports fans
that NASCAR so covets will
almost certainly look at the
race rundown crawling along
the bottom of an ESPN tele-
cast, and think: Which series
is that again?
That's because recognition
in sports is bred through con-
sistency. The uniforms of the
New York Yankees or the
Green Bay Packers are in-
stantly recognizable for one
simple reason: they don't
change. People who don't
follow professional hockey
recognize the Stanley Cup,
because that same silver tro-
phy has been awarded to the
NHL champion for 80 years.
The same applies to


NASCAR, where even the
most casual of followers are
able to recognize Jeff Gor-
don's No. 24 car -- slightly
tweaked over the years, with
rainbow colors giving way to
flames -- or the late Dale
Earnhardt's menacing, black
No. 3. No wonder track pro-
moters hate the special paint
schemes that are endemic to
big races. It's like the Red
Sox trotting out for the
World Series in blue jerseys.
Consistency helps build
recognition and helps build
fans. The converse is some-
thing like the PGA Tour's de-
velopmental circuit -- which
began as the Ben Hogan
Tour, before becoming the
Nike Tour, before becoming
the Buy.com Tour, before be-
coming the Nationwide Tour
-- which has never really
caught on, perhaps partly be-
cause people wonder what to
call it. Somewhere in the
middle is NASCAR, an

Aussie Ambrose ready for Daytona


Australian Marcos Am-
brose has a pair of NASCAR
Nationwide Series races at
Daytona International
Speedway under his belt
and .is itching to get on
track for the season-open-
ing Camping World 300
presented by Chevy on Sat-
urday, Feb. 16.
"This is first race of the
season, this is the first re-
peat," Ambrose said. "Last
year was my very first try.
This is my first repeat. I
can't wait to get out there
and get amongst it and I
feel like we have great
shot."
Ambrose has helped take
NASCAR global in Aus-
tralia. He is a two-time
Australian V8 Supercar
champion and in his first
NASCAR Nationwide Se-
ries season in 2007, he fin-
ished eighth in points.
Ambrose, who drives the
No. 59 Ford for JTG Rac-
ing, says come in February,
Aussie race fans will keep
a keen eye on the activities at
Daytona International
Speedway, including his
event the Camping World
300 presented by Chevy as
well as the 50th running of
the Daytona 500.
"Australian race fans, the
majority of them, are fairly
casual viewers," Ambrose
said. "They don't understand
the sport but they all know
the Daytona 500 and they all
know the first race of the
year is the biggest. That's
very usual for a sport. All
eyes are watching the first
race of the year. The Day-
tona 500 is the one of the
premier motorsports race in
the world, if not the best.
"I think Daytona is my fa-
vorite NASCAR track. It's
got so much history here.


When you're running on the
track, you just know the her-
itage of the place. You know

Ambrose. "They

That's very usual
for a sport. All eyes
are watching the

it's really the birthplace of
NASCAR. Just to drive this
race track, it's narrow, it's
bumpy, it's slippery. You do a
plate race, the cars are so
close together and there's al-
ways action. I love the Day-
tona races."
Ambrose believes the fans
are catching on. During the
off-season, he was awarded
the honor of Australian Na-
tional Driver of the Year.
"I'm educating the Aus-
tralian race fan about
NASCAR. I won an award
there in the off-season that
was voted in by the public
and they are clearly tuning
in."

Wallace, the 1989

both of his NASCAR Na-

test as his drivers David
Stremme and son Steve
were preparing for the sea-
son-opening Camping

Chevy.
Rudy visits: Former New
York City Mayor and Re-
publican Presidential Candi-
date Rudy Giuliani made a
surprise visit during the
lunch break of Monday's
NASCAR Nationwide Series
testing.
Giuliani, who attended last
year's NASCAR Sprint Cup
Series July race at DIS, took
a parade lap around DIS in
his campaign bus and then
toured the garage area.
"When you're in the bus,
you felt like if you went even
halfway up that bank boom
- you would tumble over,"
Giuliani said.
During a brief visit with
the media in the garage area,
Giuliani compared the his-
toric Daytona International
Speedway to Yankee Stadi-
um.
"I think because like Yan-


kee Stadium contains a lot of
the history of baseball, not
just the Yankees, but the his-
tory baseball, (Daytona)
contains a lot of the history
of NASCAR," Giuliani said.
Giuliani also said
NASCAR is a sport that
must be witnessed in person.
"This is a sport that I think
most people don't get this
sport until they come and see
it," Giuliani said. "In a
strange way, it reminds me
of hockey. Hockey is a game
that when people watch it
only on television, they don't
get it. The minute they go to
a hockey match, they are
hockey fans.
"There's something about
the speed (of NASCAR), the
excitement, the risk, tremen-
dous amount of team work.
It's a fabulous sport."


Richard Petty to

serve as honorary

starter for '500'

7-Time '500' champion


Seven-time Daytona 500
champion Richard Petty,
who's father Lee won the in-,
augural Daytona 500 in
1959, will serve as honorary
starter for the historic 50th
running of the Daytona 500
on Sunday, Feb. 17.
Petty will drop the green
flag at Daytona International
Speedway to get the historic
event underway at 3:30 p.m.
(ET) on FOX.
"We are so honored and
proud to have Richard Petty
drop the green flag to get the
most anticipated event in
racing history underway,"
said Speedway President
Robin Braig. "Richard and
the Daytona 500 are synony-
mous with NASCAR's
biggest, richest and most
prestigious race and we're
thrilled to have him get the
50th spectacle underway."
Over the course of 32
years driving on the
NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit,
along with his record seven
Daytona 500 wins, "The
King" has a record 200 vic-


stories; won seven Sprint Cup
championships; recorded 27
wins in 1967; was named the
circuit's "Most Popular Dri-
ver" nine times and was the
Series Rookie of the Year in
1959.
Petty continues the tradi-
tion of high-profile celebri-
ties, politicians and athletes
that have served as Honorary
Starter for the Daytona 500.
Former NASCAR driver
Phil Parsons was the Hon-
orary Starter in 2007.
Olympic snowboard medal-
ists Hannah Teter and
Gretchen Bleiler, who led the
United States to a 1-2 finish
in the women's halfpipe,
served as Co-Honorary
Starters in 2006. Actor Ash-
ton Kutcher waved the green
flag for the 2005 Daytona
500 and comedian Whoopi
Goldberg started the 2004
edition of "The Great Ameri-
can Race." Singer Mariah
Carey sang the National An-
them and served as the Hon-
orary Starter .for the 2003
Daytona 500.


Junior Johnson to

drive pace car in

Daytona 500

1960 '500' champion


Former Daytona 500
champion Junior Johnson,
who claimed 50 NASCAR
victories including the 1960
edition of "The Great Amer-
ican Race," will be behind
the wheel of a 2008 Corvette
Z06 as he paces the field be-
fore the start of the historic
50th running of the Daytona
500 on Sunday, Feb. 17 at
Daytona International
Speedway.
"Having a NASCAR leg-
end like Junior Johnson pace
the field of the historic 50th
running of the Daytona 500
is a perfect fit," said Speed-
way President Robin Braig.
"We're proud to call Junior a
Daytona 500 champion and
proud to have him get the
most anticipated event in
racing history underway."
Inducted into the Interna-
tional Motorsports Hall of
Fame in 1990 and named
one of NASCAR's 50 Great-
est Drivers in 1998, the
North` Carolina native
claimed his Daytona 500
victory in only his second
season in NASCAR compe-
tition. That memorable win
was behind the wheel of the
No. 27 John Masoni Day-
tona Kennel Club Chevrolet
Impala.
"We are honored to have
one of the sport's greatest pi-
oneers drive a Z06 Corvette
pace car at the 50th running


of NASCAR's,'Great Ameri-
can Race'", said Ed Peper,
general manager of Chevro-
let. "Along with recognizing
Junior Johnson's 50
NASCAR wins and
NASCAR's 50th Daytona
500, Chevrolet is thrilled to
mark 50 years of, the Impala
in 2008. It's just a great
match.
"To have Junior Johnson
pace the golden anniversary
of the Daytona 500 in a Z06
Corvette is a special way to
celebrate the heritage, per-
formance, and success of
Chevrolet in NASCAR,"
added Peper.
Johnson's 50 NASCAR
race wins make him one of
the most successful drivers
of his era. In fact, of those
50 victories, 23 were in GM
products: five in Oldsmo-
biles, eight in Pontiacs, and
10 in Chevrolets. Of those
10 Chevy wins, seven were
in the famous No. 3 Holly
Farms Impala. As a car own-
er, Johnson claimed 139 vic-
tories and six championships
in NASCAR's top division
while employing legendary
drivers Darrell Waltrip and
Cale Yarborough.
Johnson joins past drivers

Conservation aids mallards in navigating modern flyway


On a cold and damp winter morning, 6a
stand of flooded timber in southern Arkansas
is prime real estate. Not just for the rice farm-
ers or timber barons of the region, but for the
throngs of mallards (Anas platyrhynchos),
other species
of waterfowl Few North Amer
and hunters enjoy the notorif

mass migra- especially the gi
tion, ideal males are perh
habitat and a recognizable of
love for one of '
North America's most recognized ducks.
Here, mallard hens and drakes take to an
open pool of water to feed in the water as the
sun strains to cast shadows through the low-
hanging clouds while the far-off sounds of
their calls send excitement through eager
hunters and well-trained Labrador gun dogs
alike. This pairing of hunter and hunted, now
as imminent as the ice-cold, shin-deep water
that surrounds duck blinds nationwide, has
persevered for one more year.
Not limited to just the pools and puddles of
Arkansas, this scene plays out across the
United States on a daily basis during the win-
ter migration. But it wasn't always this way.
As the nation expanded from sea to sea, wa-
terfowl namely mallards and other ducks -
bore the brunt of America's prosperity. Habi-
tat destruction, the draining of wetlands and
unregulated hunting practices all played a
role in the decrease of mallard numbers
across the country.
By conserving vital breeding, migration
and wintering habitat through things such as
the federal Conservation Reserve Program
(CRP), Clean Water Act, Migratory Bird
Treaty Act and the reduction in the number of
wetlands drained, the mallard has become the
country's most common duck, with 9.5 mil-
lion breeding mallards by the year 2000.
Though population numbers fluctuate from
year to year, most areas are still seeing popu-
lation increases of 100 percent above their
long-term averages. One of the breeds of

Their images have graced multiple Federal

Though conservation is a year-round ef-
fort, on the fourth Saturday of every Septem-
ber, millions of Americans celebrate the suc-
cess of the mallard and many other species as
part of National Hunting and Fishing Day ac-'
tivities that will be going on nationwide. Na-
tional Hunting and Fishing Day began after a
presidential proclamation in 1972 that sets
aside the fourth Saturday of each September
for the event. Since then, national, regional,
state and local organizations have staged
thousands of open house hunting- and fish-
ing-related events everywhere from shooting
ranges to suburban frog ponds, providing
millions of Americans with a chance to expe-
rience, understand and appreciate traditional
outdoor sports.
The careful waterfowl conservation efforts
of the past have given millions of people the
thrill of hearing the mallard call to a mate in
the distance, to view it in its natural habitat
and to restore its population to huntable pop-

NASCAR '


Dock Talk

acronym that on its own requires no
further definition. But the names of its
.three national divisions are dependent
upon title sponsorship, and subject to
change based on market forces the
sanctioning body cannot control. And
thus susceptible to times like these,
when the familiar gives way to the un-
familiar, and it becomes clear that a 32-
year deal with Winston or a 26-year re-
lationship with Busch is the exception
and not the rule.
NASCAR knows this is a lot of
change for its faithful to digest, and
prefers to focus on factors within its '
sphere of influence. "Ultimately, and
here's what we found out already with
Nextel and what were going to find out
with Nationwide, is that the fans are
most interested in the racing and the
competitors," said NASCAR
spokesman Ramsey Poston.. "There has
been a lot of change. We're trying to
manage change as best as possible. Ul-
timately, what's important as far as
what we can control is the competition,
and we think the competition is as good
as it's ever been today."
Still, it makes you wonder: Why, giv-
en the sometimes unpredictable spon-
sorship atmosphere NASCAR operates
in, have a Winston Cup or.a Nextel Cup
or a Sprint Cup at all? Why not have
something like a William C. France Jr.
Cup, which goes to 'the winner of the
Sprint Series or the Coors Light Series
or whatever it may be in 2027, as a
method of bringing some consistency
to a tour that will have a new name for'
the second time in four years? That's
unlikely, because these aren't straight


naming rights deals. From a NASCAR
perspective, an entity like Sprint/Nextel
isr't just a title sponsor, but an active
partner that helps market and sell the
sport through initiatives like FanView
and the Nextel Experience. They're
paying for influence as well as expo-
sure.
"In our sport, the sponsors aren't just
a bystander. They are committed to the
sport, they are committed to the fans,"
Poston said. "Not only are they the title
sponsor, they are also part of the year-
end points fund. They're instrumental,
Sprint in particular, in developing
things like FanView, and also in pro-
moting the sport itself, with all these
[television] ads they have with Elliott
Sadler and Jimmie Johnson. So in this
sport, you really have a sponsor that is
'ingrained in the sport and is part of the
fabric and tradition of the sport. So
having their name on the trophy is ap-
propriate."
Sometimes, as NASCAR has discov-
ered, change can be for the positive,
even when it means the end of a land-
mark relationship. For all Winston and
R.J. Reynolds did for NASCAR -- and
they did plenty, from a crack public re-
lations department that helped foster
more coverage to cash that helped
make the sport a household name -- ties
to the cigarette industry were an anchor
dragging NASCAR down. It's no coin-
cidence that Winston's association with
NASCAR began the year after cigarette
.ads were banned from television. As re-
cently as 2000, reporters could obtain
cartons of cigarettes as easily as they
could press releases, and media centers
could be as smoky as pool halls.
Nextel brought cleaner air and a


more modem edge, one a little more
rock and roll and a little less country,
without any public health baggage. It
could market to children as well as
adults. It was a technological company
befitting a technological sport, a part-
ner that wasn't banned from advertising
on television, a sponsor that after a few
early missteps rolled out a series of ini-
tiatives that have helped better expose
the sport. Surely within offices in Day-
tona Beach, there's hope that Nation-
wide can do something similar with
what used to be the Busch Series,
which has long lived in the shadow of
its more successful older brother, and
has struggled to carve an identity of its
own. And the search is on fdr a compa-
ny that can help the Truck Series,
where too many teams are saddled with
sponsorship issues, find a broader ap-
peal.
But in the meantime there is the
tricky matter of the conversion, of a
season that will surely see plenty of dri-
vers talking about the "Busch -- err, Na-
tionwide Series" and fans wondering
whether Tony Stewart should be re-
ferred to as a two-time Winston, Nex-
tel, or Sprint Cup champion. They have
some time to get it right; six years re-
main on the original 10-year contract
signed with Sprint/Nextel,' and the
agreement with Nationwide runs
through 2014. Eventually, Sprint and
Nationwide may become just as sec-
ond-nature as Winston and Busch were
in their time. But in this day and age,
where a drop of a few points in a stock
price or an earnings report can cause a
drastic shift in marketing strategy,
they're unlikely to be around for as
long.

too extreme for me. I would-
n't be content to fish only one
lure all the time because for
me, it's very exciting and re-
warding to experiment with
new lures or strange colors
and finally figure out some-
thing that will trigger a bass
to bite. The problem that I
usually run into though is
that I enjoy catching more
than I do fishing. Therefore,
I tend to spend most of my
time. fishing with the lures
that I know from past experi-
ences will give me the great-
est chances of catching and
my original plan to use all of
my newly purchased lures
that "look like they will
work" gets scrapped as I pro-
ceed to use the old standbys
that have always produced.
It was an old standby lure
(6" lizard) that produced for
Ben Broughton and his tour-
nament partner George Prid-
geon when Broughton land-


ed a 7.-0 pound bass that an-
chored their five fish limit of
14.65 to win the first Xtreme
Bass Series tournament on
the Suwannee River out of
Hinton Landing on Saturday,
Jan. 16. The harsh weather
conditions undoubtedly kept
a few anglers away, but 26
teams braved the heavy rains
and bitter temperatures for
the season opener. Almost
every team caught a limit
and the weights were stacked
pretty tight from second
place on down. Michael
Graham and Ken Corbin
were runners-up with a limit
weighing 13.30 with Kevin
Walker and Stacy Cowart in
third with 11.62. Joey Wood
and Jr. Dice took the final
paid place in fourth with
10.52. The next Xtreme Se-
ries on the Suwannee will be
on Saturday Feb. 16. The
North Florida Bassmasters
will hold their monthly derby
on the Saturday before the
Xtreme (Feb. 9).

GK RAD


Y"S


The Pontiac GMC Truck
brand has finally returned to
Live Oak.
"I'm very excited to return
to the same building where I
sold my first car just under
14 years ago," says Grady
Cadle, owner of Grady's
Pontiac GMC Truck.
After working for several
dealers in the North Florida
area in various sales and
management positions,
Cadle, who has lived in
Wellborn for 20 years, is
ready to make the leap as
owner and general manager.
The dealership opens Friday.
"We're bringing the
hometown dealer back to the
hometown," says Cadle. "I
feel that too often car dealers
in small towns have a big
city mentality and treat their
customers as a number."
Grady's has pooled its
management, sales staff and
service technicians from the
local community, all of
whom want to put customer
service and their community
first.
"Our goal is to provide the
service our community
deserves and to make our
customers feel like family,"
says Cadle.
Not only does Grady's
Pontiac GMC Truck service
Ponuac and GMC vehicless ,
but they are reads to work
on all makes and models,
including imports, at their


service center. According to
Shane Nobles, fixed
operations manager, "We can
diagnose and repair car
trouble on anything from
BMWs to Toyotas, or
provide standard oil changes
for any vehicle."
New and pre-owned
vehicle buyers will also
benefit from grand opening
savings as the 2007 model
clearance is well underway
and a broad selection of
quality inspected pre-owned
vehicles is available.
"In keeping with the
'hometown dealer" theme,"
Cadle says, "our customer
family can always drive
away with a good deal and
have confidence that we will
take care of all their vehicle
needs after the sale."
The grand opening of
Grady's Pontiac GMC Truck
will be a two-week event to
be announced. It will feature
special purchasing incentives
for new and used vehicles as
well as special promotions in
the service center.
Grady's Pontiac GMC
Truck is located on the
corner of Houston Avenue
and US 90 in Live Oak.
Cagle believes, "Our
objective for providing great
service to our community
has become our operating
motto. gie hometo wn
service and small-town
prices.


" We're bringing the hometown
dealer back to the hometown,"
says Cadle. "I feel that too often
car dealers in small towns have
a big city mentality and treat
their customers as a number.

Matain eye and vision health



Maintain eye and vision health


Eating properly is not only good for your overall
health; it's also good for your eyes, especially as you
age. You can consume certain vitamins and nutrients
that researchers have found to nourish and protect the
health of your eyes. Following is a breakdown o0
some of those findings.

Fruits reduce your risk of AMD. A study from the
Channing Laboratory at Harvard Medical School and
Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) indicates
that people who eat a daily diet that includes several
servings of fruit can reduce their risk of developing
macular degeneration (AMD) as seniors. The study
compared seniors' intake of antioxidant vitamins and
carotenoids (like beta carotene) as well as fruits and
vegetables, and how these elements relate to the
development of macular degeneration. Researchers
discovered that people who consumed three or more
servings of fruit per day over a period of 12 to 18
years reduced their risk of developing macular
degeneration by more than 30 percent, compared to
.people who ate 1.5 servings per day or fewer.

Vitamin A reduces night blindness. A diet lacking in
vitamin A can cause night blindness, a deterioration
of light sensitive cells (rods) essential for vision in
low lighting. This deficiency also can extensively
damage the eye's cornea to create total blindness.

Sommer, M.D., linked a vitamin A (retinol) deficiency
to the very high prevalence of night blindness in
children of developing countries such as India and
Bangladesh. Sommer found that night blindness
decreased by one-third in children who received
vitamin A. Sources of vitamin A include: cod liver oil,
liver, carrots, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash.
Note: while vitamin A supplementation can be
beneficial, it can also be toxic if taken at abnormally
high dosages. Consult with a doctor before using.

Vitamins E and C slow cataract growth. Results from
the Nurses' Health Study conducted at the Tufts
University USDA Human Nutrition Research Center
on Aging, demonstrate that supplementation with
vitamins E and C may offer significant protection
against the development of cataracts. Vitamin E
sources include: sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts,
hazelnuts, pistachio nuts, avocados, peanuts, and nut
products such as oils and butters, eggs (one egg can
provide almost 6 percent of the recommended daily
amounts of vitamin E), greens, tomatoes, asparagus,
and sweet potatoes. Sources of vitamin C include:
fruits such as guava, oranges, grapefruit, melons,
grapes, berries, and fruit juices; vegetables such as
peppers, brussel sprouts, potatoes, broccoli, beans,
onions, tomatoes, and squash; meat such as liver and
organ meats; and some seafood and fish.

THE AWESOME LOVE OF GOD


By Pam Campbell

7 he month of February is when
many people celebrate
Valentine s Day. Valentine's
Day is a day when people give
each other flowers, cards, candy another
presents to let them know that they love
them. When I think of Valentine's Day, I
think of a special day to show love to people
that I care about, but most of all I think
about the greatest gift of love there
has ever been, the awesome love of
God. God gave us the greatest
Valentine of ALL TIME! -
The awesome love that God
has for us is the ultimate gift of
love. I am sure that you have
seen pictures of Jesus with
his arms spread out with
the words "I asked
Jesus how much he ,:
loved me and he held ... ,.
out his arms and said
this much, and died."
He loves you so much he -

Truly his love is the
greatest love there has ever
been or ever will be. God knew that we
would all need a savior and he gave his only
son to die on the cross for our sins. Jesus did
not have to go to the cross, he did not have
to die, but he willingly gave his life on the
cross that all may be saved. Jesus bore all of
our pain, all sickness, disease, injuries,
sadness, depression, every illness that has
ever existed on his body all at the same time.
He endured what no one else has ever
endured, he endured All of the pain that
exists. He did it so that we can believe and
receive healing in our bodies. We read in 1
Peter 2:24 "Who his own self bare our sins
in his own body on the tree, that we, being
dead to sins, should live unto righteousness:
by whose stripes ye were healed."
He did not have to stay on that cross,
he could have called for the angels to take
him down, he could have said it is too much,
but he never did. Jesus stayed on that cross
with huge nails in his hands and his feet, a
crown of thorns pushed down on his head,
beat beyond recognition, he endured it all
and then he died, he bore ALL of our sins.
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that
he gave his only begotten son, that whosever
believeth in him should not perish, but have
everlasting life." Jesus, the son of God, died
such a cruel death for you and I, now that is
awesome love. God watched as his only son
suffered and died in such pain and agony.
How do you think he real y felt watching his
son on that cross? I am sure that the love he
has for all of us is very great, only the
strongest love could watch Jesus die the way
that he did. He knew as Jesus knew that this
was the only way to pay for the salvation of
all mankind. The love is so great, so
amazing, so awesome, the Love of God.
In Ephesians 3:17-18 we read "So that
Christ may dwell in your hearts through
faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and
established in love, may have power,
together with all the saints, to grasp how
wide and long and high and deep is the love
of Christ,"
We serve such an awesome God, he is
our shepherd. He takes care of his sheep, he
knows each one of us by name. God is our
refuge, the place to run to when there is
trouble or if we are in danger. We can always

count on him to protect us. Our God is like a
rock, he is strong and he will never leave us,
we can trust in God, our rock. God protects
us just like an eagle protects her young. God
is our potter, he molds us to be what he wants
us to be, we can follow him and he will direct
our paths in what is the very best for our
lives. Just think, God who is the creator of
everything is also our father! Jesus is not
only our savior but our healer, our best
friend, our helper, he is the King of Kings
and Lord of Lords, he is more than enough!
It is a wonderful idea to give
Valentine's to your family and friends to
remind them that you love them, just
always remember the most
important thing is to let God know
S howv much you appreciate his
awesome love. This special
holiday is a wonderful
opportunity for Christians to
share the love of God with
many other people that
we come in contact
.,, with such as
neighbors, co-
workers, your boss,
: the postman, a
g teacher, a special
S *: doctor or nurse, a
cashier or waitress, anyone
that you come in contact
with in your life. It is a great time for you to
take something special by to brighten up the
day for patients in a hospital or nursing
home, who may otherwise be forgotten. You
don't have to buy expensive gifts or cards,
handmade cards, and small little gifts, or
something baked or made by you will show
them much love.
The greatest gift you can gi\ e
Jesus is to show him how much you
love him by giving him your heart.
Matthew 22:37 "Jesus said unto him.
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with
all thy heart, and with all thy soul,
and with all thy mind."
When you celebrate
Valentine's Day this year. please
take a few minutes out of your A.
day and sing the song "Jesus f
Loves Me." The words to this
little song are very great and .
powerful, they truly remind
us of God's awesome love. '


Remember,
Valentine's Day is a day to
show God's awesome love
to others, and a day to
thank him for his great
love! Have a very
Happy Valentine's Day
full of God's awesome
love!

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER


THE AWESOME LOVE OF GOD


By Pam Campbell
This month many people celebrate
Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day is a
day when people give each other
flowers, cards, candy and other
presents to let them know that they
love them. What do you think about
when you think about Valentine's
Day? Candy, parties, and valentine
presents? Aunt Pam likes those, too!
But when I think of Valentine's Day,
I think of a special day to show love
to people that I care about, but most
of all I think about the greatest gift of-
love there has ever been, the
awesome love of God. God gave us
the greatest Valentine of ALL TIME!
Truly his love is the greatest love
there has ever been or ever will be.
God knew that we would all need a
savior and he gave his only son to
die on the cross for our sins. Jesus
did not have to go to the cross, he did
not- have to die, but he did it because
he loves us. Jesus took all of our
pain, every sickness that has ever
existed on his body all at the same
time. He did it so that we can believe
and receive healing in our bodies.
We read in 1 Peter 2:24 "Who his
own self bare our
sins in his own ,_
body on the tree,
that we, being dead
to sins, should live
unto righteousness:
by whose stripes ye
were healed."
He did not have to
stay on that cross, he
could have called for
the angels to take
him down, he could
have said it is too
much, but he never
did. Jesus stayed on that
cross with huge nails in
his hands and his feet, a
crown of thorns ,
pushed down on his
head, he died for
ALL of our sins. In -,
the Bible in John b .
3:16 God says "For L
God so loved the world,
that he gave his only
begotten son, that
whosever believeth in
him should not
perish, but have
everlasting life.
Now that is KL 6
awesome
love!


Day sing the song "Jesus Loves Me."
I am sure that most of you know this
special song! The song is a great one
to remind us how much we really are
loved.
