FRIDAY, FEBRA 1,0SWN DMR/


EXTENSION UPDA
By Cathy Rogers
The Board of County
Commissioners of
Suwannee County has ---
proclaimed the week of '
Feb. 24 to March 2. to
be Suwannee County .
Saves Week.
It is common
knowledge that most ,;
Americans do not have .
adequate emergency ..
savings, retirement
funds, and safe debt-to-
income ratios. These
are critical components
of personal financial
security. Personal and
household savings is fundamental to
Suwannee County's stability and vitality.
America Saves is a national social
marketing campaign to persuade, encourage
and motivate Americans to take financial
action in building wealth through saving
ioney and reducing debt. Suwannee
County is a partner in the America Saves
campaign and is committed to helping its
citizens take immediate financial action to
Build Wealth, Not Debt.
Our board of commissioners calls on all
Suwannee County citizens to start or


T increase an emergency fund
1TE 'or take another positive
wealth-building action
during Suwannee County
Saves Week and pledge to
t sustain that action during
the following year.
America Saves is a six-
year old effort to encourage
non-saving Americans to
save through a social
marketing approach. About
1,000 organizations in over
50 local areas participate,
I and these organizations have
encouraged and assisted
,. hundreds of thousands of
savers, especially the more
than 90,000 who have
enrolled as American
Savers.
Most Americans do not
have adequate savings to meet major
emergencies, let alone accumulate enough
savings for retirement. The typical
American household has less than $100,000
in net wealth, including home equity and
401k accumulations, and only $10,000 in
net financial assets. Lower income families
have much fewer resources. The fact that
the national savings rate is negative, while
the prices of homes and securities are
basically stagnant, suggests, in terms of
household savings, we are moving
backwards.


America Saves is a six-year old effort to encourage non-saving
Americans to save through a social marketing approach. About
1,000 organizations in over 50 local areas participate, and these
organizations have encouraged and assisted hundreds of
thousands of savers, especially the more than 90,000 who have


Here are some things that you can do:
Set a goal to open a savings account or
to save more or on a more regular basis.
Check the local banks for free or low-
fee savings accounts. Note the minimum
balance required. Ask how.you can avoid
the fee there are ways.
Consider rounding-up and saving the
change. You may do this physically saving
change in your pocket each day and then
depositing it into, a sayings account weekly
or monthly, in your checkbook transferring
the differencewhen you reconcile your
balance, or use a check card at a bank who
offers that as a service.
Have your bank automatically transfer
part of your direct deposited check to your
savings account. If you never see it in your
checking account chances are that you'll
never miss it, but you will have saved that
money.
Sign up on the America Saves website:
www.Americasaves.org. By enrolling you
will develop a specific saving goal and keep
track of that goal. There are many free


enrolled as American Savers.

benefits and tips for saving money on the
site besides being encouraged to' save.

Thank you


A special thank you to the
nice person who dropped off
the beautiful bird cage at
Surrey Place.
Pepe, the cockatiel, who
has become a very important
addition to the pet therapy
program at Surrey Place,
needed a little more room.
His bird cage was a little too
small for him, but the bigger
cages were: ,:*
expensive. Thanks to a vol-
unteer who knew our need,
she spread the word in the
community, and one day,


this nice person pulled up to
the entry at Surrey Place and
just dropped it off.
We would have liked to
thank him personally,. but
we don't know who he
is....so, thank you very
much.
We definitely appreciate
your kindness and so does

COMMENTARY


And then you will


crow like a rooster


On my e-
mail today, this
yahoo asked, .
me if I thought -
hypnosis was
real. To tell you
the truth, I've
just never giv-
en it a lot of Dwain Walden
thought. Right
now I'm more
concerned with gasoline prices
and finding a good used pickup
truck.
Hypnosis is down there way
below fire ants and grits futures.
But to answer his question,
yes I believe hypnosis is real.
Have I ever been hypnotized?
No. Do I want to be hypnotized?
No. Why do I not want to be
hypnotized? Because I don't.
won't to go around all day crow-
ing like a rooster or cawing like
a crow.,
As a kid, I saw a hypnotist do
that to a fellow.
Now I have read reports where
people said hypnotic therapy has
help d them lose weight, quit
smolngihda&ll -valiable in-
formation. I'm not poohpooing it
as a therapy or psychological
tool. But I don't want to be hyp-
notized because I don't want
someone having that kind of
control over me. I have enough
trouble with the federal govern-
ment in that regard.
I know from experience that
you can be put into a mental
state where you will do things
you don't remember. For in-
stance, one night I took one and
a half Ambien to help me sleep.
The next morning my wife told
me that at 3 a.m. she found me
wandering around in the back-
yard like I was looking for
something. I had absolutely no
recall of that event. I learned
three things from that. One, a
single Ambien is my limit. Two,
I apparently had not lost any-
thing in the backyard. Three,
that was very scary. I might have
voted for Sonny Perdue.
Of course this person on my e-
mail was trying to sell me a
hynosis program. And he said I
could have unlimited mental
powers over myself and others. I
could get rid of phobias and hid-
den fears of needles, spiders and


snakes. I could also have great
persuasion with my new great
charisma.
And it says this is just the "tip
of the iceberg."
Well, when I think of the "tip
of the iceberg" I think of the Ti-
tanic. I've never associated ice-
bergs with anything good.
Maybe small ones in iced tea.
As well, I'm not afraid of nee-
dles, spiders or snakes. I am
afraid of people running up on
my bumper and crashing into
me. That happened to me two
weeks ago. Totaled my vehicle
and his. Now I have this urge to
buy a bright orange vehicle with
a dozen flashing lights on the
back. Four days after that horri-
ble event, I was in very heavy
traffic and I looked over in the
parallel lane and a woman was
driving her car withfher knees
while she was putting on her eye
liner. I don't want hypnosis to
cure me of this fear. I want to be
afraid, very afraid. It's about sur-
vival.
As for the charisma thing, I
would: be. afraidtiatha would b- *-
come a televangelist. I think
there is a great liability in touch-
ing people and making them fall
down.
The associated promo that
came with this e-mail shows a
man swinging a watch. I think
that's an old hypnosis standard,
much like the taste of so many
foods being compared to chick-
en.
There's even a suggestion that
masses of people can be hyno-
tized at once. I don't buy into
that. However, if that were pos-t
sible, I can only imagine the
great socially redeeming value if
it were applied to Congress.
"Your eyes are getting heavier
and heavier. And when you
awake, you will never again use
your office for personal gain.
You will resign after two consec-
utive terms. And you will never
go to work for a lobbying firm.
And sometimes you may be
asked to crow like a rooster -
just to make sure it's still work-
ing."

I just want to say that everybody complains about
the stray dogs in this county. But if something hap-
pens and you have to leave and you can't take your
dogs, you can't take them to the pound because they
only take strays or it's $60 a dog. And they wonder
why ther6 is so many strays. You try to do the right
thing and they just knock it back down your teeth.
They deserve everything they get.

Florida's diminishing water supply has brought
the word drought to the headlines of the Suwannee

covery Channel and Planet Earth. Suwannee Coun-
ty residents are faced with tighter water restrictions
because of numerous reasons. First and foremost
because of the lack of rain and secondly because of


To the Editor:
Hello fellow Suwannee County citizens. In a
past election held here in Suwannee County there
was an amendment on the ballot to vote for
county commissioners by district or to change
the countywide voting. This passed because the
everyday working people of Suwannee County
liked the idea of voting for the people who vote
on their thxes and it passed in spite of opposition
from the powers that be. One commissioner stat-
ed that this was not good for commissioners.
There were some fundamental reasons for this to
be on the ballot for the tax-paying people of
Suwannee County.
Suiwannee County is not the county it once was
even five years ago. The rate of growth'and
change in this county has increased tremendously
and is continuing to do so. A government that
works well in a rural setting as Suwannee County
once was, is now found to be inadequate in this
present infrastructure, and so forth. Problems re-
main much the same from the district to district,
in a rural/agricultural setting. The biggest differ-
ence you have in the county is in the city limits
and we have a city council to deal with these
problems. A county government that chooses rep-
resentation by small districts simply means that a
commissioner only has to please a few voters in
the county and he is assured of re-election to a
job that pays more than most of the working
class people in this county get paid. They do not
have to be concerned how their decisions affect
the rest of the county. That's fine for a simple
rural community, but not for the Suwannee
County of today. We need a county commissioner
who is concerned about the county as a whole
because of the growth and change that is taking
place all over our county here in Suwannee
County. Will this solve Suwannee County's prob-
lems? No. But it is a step in the right direction.
The commissioners opposed this amendment.
One of the reasons they gave for the opposition
of countywide voting was that it was not fair to
minorities. No one particular group should feel
left out in a free society. Minority representation
is a good idea. The voting system used in Suwan-
nee County fails to give true minority representa-
tion. There is now more than one minority group
in Suwannee County and if you are not in the
right district you can neither run for the minority
position, nor vote for this position. Yet, there are
some who wish to convince voters that they have
freely elected representation which serves the
people and not their own interest and yet, still the
minorities are told this is your freely elected rep-
resentative. Within the system we now have in
use in Suwannee County it removes a lot of op-
position from all the commissioners holding po-
sitions in office. The present minority seat holder
runs unopposed and he certainly doesn't want
change.
There are other ways to have a minority seat

the agricultural systems in our area known as center
pivot irrigation systems -- a single system which
stretches out over 700-1000 feet is pulling fresh wa-
ter from our aquifer at a rate of 1,000 gallons per
minute, operating over an 8-hour period of time that
amounts to 384,000 gallons in one single day. Mul-
tiply this times each and every one of these irriga-
tion systems in Suwannee County and you can see
where our water is going.



I would like to give kudos to the loving family
who adopted "Buddy," the rescued pit bull. I did not
like what last week's rant and rave had to say to this
family because the person who wrote that has obvi-
ously never been a pit owner but only listened to the
bad stories that come with these dogs. I am a woman
who has a pit and I have never had a better dog. Peo-
ple down them for the bad stories they hear but un-
til you own one, you need to keep your mouth shut.
They are the same as any other dog, you raise them
how you want them, whether that be good or bad,
but don't judge the dog because the owner raised it
to be a fight dog and then it gets out and bites some-
body. It's not the dog's fault, but the owner's. I have
mine inside and he has been raised with love and
nothing else, he plays with [unintelligible] and kids
all the time and is loving and friendly, like any oth-
er dog in the world. So, next time you hear a horror
story about a pit, don't look at the pit but the owner
behind the pit. And to Buddy's new family, as long
as you love and respect him, he will be the best dog
you have ever had.



Callers to 208-8314 may express their thoughts,
good or bad, 24/7 about community issues and poli-
tics, but not about private individuals or businesses. If
you prefer, you may e-mail your comments to nfed-
itorial@gaflnews.com. You can let everyone know
how you feel if you will be respectful in how you ex-
press yourself. You don't have to give your name.


that would be fair to the minorities of this county
and the county as a whole. This is typical poli-
tics. The politicians are worried about their own
pocketbooks and not the county's tax dollars.

Editor's note: Mercer is president of the Com-
mittee for a Better Suwannee County.


To the Editor:
This is in response to the person who com-
mented concerning "Buddy" in the Rant and
Rave column, of your paper. Buddy was adopted
from our animal shelter. I have met Buddy and.
would not be in fear, of him being anytime in my
home. We are all concerned any time we hear of
a Bull Dog attacking "anyone, but most of the at-
tacks you here is from Bull Dogs that have either
been in a pen or on a chain.
All dogs bite, all dogs can inflict harm, as far
as I can research, there is not a scientific study
that proves that one breed of dog bite more or
caused more harm than any other breed of dogs.
Any can be a risk, even small breeds have seri-
ously hurt or killed children, an American Pit
Bull in a good home is safer than a Dachshund in
a poor home. We the owners decide how safe our
dogs can be, in the majority of dog problems, the
owner is to blame. The dogs are blamed most of
the time and are usually killed. You can tell a lot
about a person by his dog.
In the case of a penned or chained dog, most of
them are never out of their pens, they are never
petted, never hear a soothing voice, they are left
out in the rain, cold and are not able to run and
play as they should. To their owners, they are
"just dogs." Any animal needs love, they need to
be petted, able to run and have a safeand dry
place to live. I see chained dogs all over this
county, they are hunched over in the rain, in the
cold, two such animals live near me, they have
been on chains their entire lives. We need a law
here that prohibit' the chaining of dogs, period. I
do not claim to be an expert on dogs, but I have
dogs of my own and have bred and raised dogs
most of my life, I take care of my animals. My
puppies were petted and played with starting at
three weeks old.
We have a good animal shelter, we have great
people that run it, we have volunteers that do the
best they can with what resources they have, but
it is up to us, the owners, to do our jobs right so
there won't be another "Buddy" or any more at-
tacks by Bull Dogs or any other breed. We have a
responsibility to our animals if we choose to
have any and to our community. We are to keep

City did work on private property

have come before the mayor, before the city
administrator or before the public works di-
rector."
When asked by Thomas, Mayor Sonny
Nobles said he was unaware that a city truck
had been dispatched beyond the city limits to
do work for a private firm. However, OMI
Project Manager/City Public Works Director
Todd Hunt, when asked by City Councilman
Don Boyette, said he was aware of the inci-
dent, and that Nobles and City Administrator
Bob Farley approved the work.
Hunt said in late 2005 local building con-
tractor Dennis Music was doing work on the
Gold Kist expansion and due to a sudden
emergency asked the city to assist him with
the vacuum truck. City officials said the op-
eration involved removing sand from the lift
station, not sewage.
Hunt said the city was paid $300 to $400
for the services.
"At that point we received permission
from the mayor and Mr. Farley," Hunt said.
"So the mayor' and the city administrator
was aware that that truck left the city and
went to Gold Kist?" Thomas asked.
"Under that circumstance, yes sir, they
were," Hunt responded.
"It's unlawful for any city equipment to go
on private property to do any job," Thomas


said.
"I told you it was okay?" Nobles asked
Hunt.
"To do the work for Mr. Music and what
he requested, yes," Hunt said.
"I have no recollection of that," Nobles
said.
Farley said h6 was aware the truck had
been sent to Gold Kist, but said he had no
knowledge of the alleged dumping.
In a phone interview Wednesday Nobles
said he didn't have any recollection of giving
approval to the decision, but that he must
have agreed if Farley and Hunt said so.
"Any fault in this matter I accept," Nobles
said. "If there is blame for trying to help a lo-
cal businessman in a serious bind in needing
immediate assistance I will burden that
blame also."
Last September, Farley confirmed that
city fire trucks had been used on numerous
occasions to assist a private contractor in
completing work on a Live Oak apartment
complex. The trucks were used to flush wa-
ter lines within the Silas Oaks complex on
Silas Drive. Farley told the Democrat last
fall that the work was done as the result of
a misunderstanding. "What we did was
wrong," he said. "We don't do work on pri-
vate property."
The city was not reimbursed for the use of
its equipment in that incident.

proval of the councilmen,"
Hale said. "The first time it
occurred was right after I
came to the council and we:
were made aware the admin-
istrator had given a $15,000
annual raise to the finance
director. He had also given
$6,500 to another employee
while they were both on pro-
bation."
The raises weren't quite
that high, but were in viola-
tion of city rules requiring

as an investigator/claims
representative. Rewis re-
mained employed there until
2006, when he retired.
"As I am retired, I will
have ample time to devote to
the business of the city of
Live Oak," Rewis said.
Rewis and his wife and are
members of Westwood Bap-
tist Church in Live Oak. He
is a past member of the
grievance committee of the
Seventh Judicial Circuit of
Florida, Florida Bar Associ-
ation, whose responsibility it
is to investigate complaints
against attorneys in our area.
"I'm a registered Democ-
rat with a conservative out-


council approval of pay in-
creases in excess of 10 per-
cent of an employee's salary.
According to the minutes of a
special meeting of the city
council on Aug. 29, 2006,
Farley gave city Finance Di-
rector Jan Parkhurst a
$13,741 raise, from $46,259
to $60,000, an increase of
29.7 percent. Executive sec-
retary Sally Brown received a
$5,117 raise, from $17,388.80
to $22,505.60, an increase of
29.4 percent. The raises had
been awarded in the spring of

look and philosophy,"
Rewis said. "I have a sense
of disappointment in our
current political arena from
the federal level to the local
level. What seems to be
lacking is good old-fash-
ioned common sense. We
need to be able to discern
between 'wants' and 'needs.'
Simply put, a group of re-
sponsible adults should be
able to determine the most
cost effective way to bring
good service to the people
paying the bills.
"If elected, I will be acces-
sible and accountable to the
taxpayers of our city. I will
always keep foremost in
mind the best welfare of the
voters on any issue brought
before the city council."


2006.
Farley said Wednesday he
did not get permission from
the city council to give the
raises and he was reprimand-
ed by Mayor Sonny Nobles
for his actions.
"I was reprimanded for it,"
Farley said, in reference to a
letter from Nobles.
"I wanted to retain these
two valuable employees,"
Farley said, adding that both
are very knowledgeable and
competent. "I did it for the
best interest of the city be-
'cause I wanted to keep valu-
able people around."
Farley said both employees
were seeking higher-paying
positions elsewhere.
The council approved the
raises retroactively at the
Aug. 29, 2006 meeting. How-
ever, both employees had
their merit increase withheld
the following year, according
to Farley.


DEP probe targets city


Continued From Page 1A

vious six months.
A criminal investigation by
DEP was inconclusive. The
report notes that several
weeks lapsed between the al-
leged dumping and notifica-
tion of DEP, and that the
agency could not prove the
violation had occurred. How-
ever, the report also indicates
that should further evidence
become available, the crimi-
nal case will be reopened.
A regulatory,. or civil, in-
vestigation of the city by
DEP (Sontinues, however. In
addition to the alleged dump-
ing, the OMI employee re-
ported that frequent sewage
spills occur within the city's
wastewater system, due to
the poor condition of some
old pipes. The spills are sup-
posed to be reported to DEP,
but the employee said he did
not believe such reports were
being made. It is not clear
when the regulatory probe
will be completed.
The DEP inquiry came to
light at Tuesday night's city
council meeting, when Coun-
cilman John Hale reported
that he had been given clear-
ance by DEP to make the
matter public. Hale said that
during the active criminal in-
vestigation he had been told
by DEP not to speak publicly
of the alleged incident. The
employee originally reported
the alleged dumping incident
to Hale, who then reported it
to DEP.
"At that point that became
in my mind a possible crimi-
nal activity, so I contacted
DEP," Hale said at the meet-
ing.
During the criminal inves-*
tigation the employee also


told DEP of an incident that
supposedly took place a
number of weeks prior, in
which OMI workers took the
city's vacuum truck to the
Gold Kist (now Pilgrim's
Pride) chicken processing
plant to pump out untreated
solid material that had accu-
mulated due to a back up at
one of the plant's wastewater
lift stations. The employee
told DEP that he and another
OMI employee dumped the
waste at the back of the
plant's property. It is not clear
why city-owned trucks were
dispatched to a private facili-
ty 12 miles outside the Live
Oak city limits. (See related
story, Page 1A.)
Hale said that City Admin-
istrator Bob Farley con-
firmed there were two occa-
sions on which a city truck
was sent to Gold Kist to do
work, one under the direction
of Farley and the other under
former City Administrator
Matt Brock.
Farley said though he
knew workers were sent to
Gold Kist, he had no knowl-
edge of the alleged dumping.
He also said he had no
knowledge of the alleged in-
cident on Seventh Street.
Hale said another council-
man told him he checked the
log at Gold Kist and found
city trucks had been sent to
the plant seven times in the
last year or so.
"Mr. Hale, you bring up a'
situation that right now I'm
unaware of and I would ap-
preciate some documentation
because at this point, now
that I'm aware of it, I need to
do an internal investigation
into what's been accused or
alleged against OMI," OMI
Project Manager/Live Oak


"I agree with Mr. Hunt there needs to be
investigation done and the sooner the better.
If the city truck was used ... you're talking
about serious environmental issues. The city
has real liability exposure here and in turn we
would look at OMI to indemnify the city."
City Attorney David Robertson


Public Works Director Todd
Hunt said at the meeting.
City Attorney David
Robertson suggested Hale
meet with the mayor, city ad-
ministrator and himself to
document what occurred.
"I agree with Mr. Hunt
there needs to be. investiga-
tion done and the sooner the
better," Robertson said. "If
the city truck was used ...
you're talking about serious
environmental issues. The
city has real liability expo-
sure here and in turn we
would look at OMI to indem-
nify the city."

Club owner charged with

illegal sale of alcohol

Records show that the es-
tablishment holds a bottle
club license, which prohibits
the purchase or sale of alco-
holic beverages under Flori-
da law.
An agent and a confiden-
tial informant entered the


premises on several occa-
sions and were served alco-
holic beverages at the es-
tablishment, according to
reports. This led investiga-
tors to obtain a search' war-
rant.

1,400 acre Mallory Swamp wildfire contained


Smoke, ash affect area


Ira Mikell
Special to the Democrat
MAYO Lafayette Coun-
ty Division of Forestry offi-
cials were performing a
prescribed controlled burn
of approximately 150 acres
in Mallory Swamp last
week.
According to the Suwan-
nee River Water Manage-
ment District, the, con-
trolled burn is part of a
large, extensive effort to
nurture Mallory Swamp to-
ward a full recovery from
the devastating wildfire in
2001.
During the weekend, the
fire broke containment lines
and quickly grew to 900
acres, say forestry officials.
As they attempted to bring
the fire under control, the
winds changed direction
and the fire exploded to ap-
proximately 1,400 acres.
Lafayette County Forestry
was assisted by fire crews
from Hatch Bend, Mayo,
Lafayette, Branford, south
Florida and the Panhandle.
The Lafayette County Sher-
iff's Office, Florida High-
way Patrol, and several lo-
cal timber companies also
assisted in the effort.
As of Sunday, Feb. 10, the.
fire has been contained, but
local officials continue to
warn the public of the pos-
sibility of smoke and ashes
remaining in the area and
urge everyone to use cau-
tion when traveling near
the area.
During their regular
scheduled board meeting,
on Monday, Feb. 11, county
commissioners quickly vot-
ed to declare a state of
emergency for Lafayette
County in order to receive,
additional assi stance and '"
funds from the state gov-


ernment.
In addition to the original
fire, which started out as a
controlled burn, two more
fires sparked approximately
less than three miles south
of where the containment
lines. These fires have been
named the "Lost Dog Fire"
and, the "Chapel Fire." The
Florida Department of
Forestry suspect someone
could be deliberately set-
ting them, but have not
reached that conclusion
since both fires are under
investigation by the Office
of Agriculture Law Enforce-
ment.
The Florida Division of
Forestry said the fire is sig-
nificant because it is the
first large fire of the year
and it started in the same
area of Mallory Swamp.
That fire burned 57,200
acres.

tinued updates to this

United Way of Suwannee Valley tops list with low overhead expenses


United Way of Suwannee Valley tops the list of
local United Ways its size based on its low
overhead expenses, according to a report
generated by United Way of America's Membership
Accountability Department.
"As part of every local United Way's membership,
accountability to United Way of America, each United
Way annually submits an income and expense survey in
fulfillment of our membership requirements," explained
Rita Dopp, executive director of United Way of
Suwannee Valley. "Our United Way is fortunate to benefit
from a significant amount of in-kind community support
which helps us contain costs. This support includes the
provision of our facilities and utilities by a community
citizen, the provision of graphics and media expertise
through Lake City Community College and a wealth df
volunteerism for our United Way's standing committees
and campaign team, which enables the accomplishment of
the annual community fundraising campaign with a
minimal staff."
"United Way of Suwannee Valley's overhead ratio was
also driven down by the amount of grant funds received
for its community impact initiatives," stated local
attorney Tom Brown, Brown chairs the United Way's
Planning Committee, which is responsible for identifying
unmet community needs and providing oversight for the
community impact initiatives undertaken in response to
the needs identified.
Local United Ways are segmented by United Way of
America according to their community fundraising
campaign size. United Way of Suwannee Valley is
classified as a Metro 6. .Metro 6 United Ways are those
with community fundraising campaigns ranging from
$500,000 to $749,000. According to United Way of
America's report for 2005, the last year for which the
figures are available, there are 110 local United Ways
identified as a Metro 6. The average overhead ratio was


16.7 percent, compared to United Way of Suwannee
Valley's 5.30 percent.
"This is good news for our United Way donors," said
John Kasak, president of the United Way of Suwannee
Valley Board of Directors. "While our United Way
leadership holds a strong confidence level in our funds
usage, it is good to see in a system-level report
documenting it." '
United Way of Suwannee Valley recently submitted its
response to the current year's income and expense survey
based on 2006 fiscal year data. "We look forward to
monitoring the results," said Joe Flanagan, United Way of
Suwannee Valley president-elect. "Most importantly, our


volunteer leadership looks forward to the increased
opportunity our community donors enable through both
their financial support and their in-kind support, which
helps to contain our overhead costs. We live in a caring
community, and it is demonstrated through our
community's United Way."
United Way of Suwannee Valley is a community impact
and fundraising organization which, utilizing volunteers
on all levels, identifies unmet community needs and seeks
to alleviate those needs through United Way of Suwannee
Valley initiatives and the funding of 23 affiliated health
and human service agencies.

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels

In a tribute to black
athletes during Black
History month it would
be remiss to leave out a
man called by famous
sports writer Jimmy
Cannon "a credit to your
race the human race."
The Brown Bomber Joe
Louis Barrow. You know
him as just Joe Louis,
voted the greatest
heavyweight champion
ever.
After Jack Johnson's
rule as heavyweight
champion, it would be a
long time until an
African American would
get a shot at the title.
Louis would knock out
James Braddock
(Cinderella Man) in
1937 and keep the title
for the next 11 years and
10 months. Louis would
knockout 55 of his 69
opponents.
For those in the
boxing world the
legends he would beat
included the "Wild Bull
of the Pampas."
6'5" Primo Camera,
"Two Ton" Tony
Galanto, Jack Sharkey
and perhaps the greatest


fight of all time, Louis
versus light heavyweight
champion Billy Conn. In
all, Joe Louis had 27
title fights, he defended
his title 25 times and his
only title fight loss was
to Ezzard Charles after
Joe Louis had come out
of retirement. Louis
would also lose the last
fight of his career to
some guy named Rocky
Marciano.
Louis is of course
renowned for beating
Max Schmeling, who
fought under the Nazi
flag after Schmeling had
given Louis his first
professional loss in
1936. Louis also
knocked out Metro's of
Beverly Hillbillies fame
father Mix Baer. In all
19 of Louis's title fights
were in the state of New
York, where the Bomber
routinely filled the
stands of Yankee
Stadium that borders
Harlem or The Old
Madison Garden on
33rd Street.
Like many American
heroes black or white,
much of his late life was
tragic. Battles with the
IRS and the toll of 69
fights caught up. Louis
finally settled in Vegas
where he was a greeter.
Frank Sinatra paid for
Louis's heart operations
in his later life. Max
Schmeling, who
renounced Hitler, later
became Joe's best
friend. It is rumored he
paid for the Champ's
funeral. Louis was laid
to rest in Arlington in
1981.
He was the greatest.

The history of Valentine's Day is clouded in myth and legend.
There are at least three people named Valentine who are
mentioned in early church documents, quite interestingly, all
of whom are thought to have been martyred. One was a ...-
priest who supposedly married people despite the ban c .'
on marriage by the Emperor Claudius. (This ban on
marriage was in effect because Claudius believed that single
men made better soldiers.) In one of those legends about St.
' -._ Valentine, we are told that Valentine refused to renounce,
Christ before Emperor Claudius in the year 280 AD and was
thus, sentenced to death. However, before being executed; St
Valentine supposedly restored the sight and hearing of the
jailer's daughter. And, some accounts even tell of St.
Valentine sending a letter to the jailer's daughter signed,
"from your Valentine," and this story is sometimes used to
explain the custom of sending love-inspired cards on this day
Sj Whatever the truth about St. Valentine, there is little doubt
that love triumphs over all. Love of God, gave countless
martyrs the faith to accept their deaths with equanimity. Lo Lc
also gives people who are wronged, the power to forgive their
oppressors. And love inspires all of us to simply be better
people. One has to wonder if Emperor Claudius didn't actually ,
have it backwards. Perhaps instead of banning marriage, he
should have required it, because those who are fighting for t
someone or something they truly love, fight much harder than
those who are only doing it for money or honor.

Many waters cannot quench love neither can

Don't get mad...



get even


Heart Matters
By Angie Land


"Don't get mad...get
even." A popular idea no
doubt, but how well does
this concept work and what
does it really accomplish
when it comes to our
relationships? At first
glance, we like this saying
because it gives us the
illusion that we are in
control of a painful
situation. In reality, by not
communicating with
someone who has offended
us, we operate on the
assumption that his or her
offense was intentional.
We believe they actually
meant us harm. Think
about times when you
discovered that you had
hurt someone's feelings or
offended them...you were
probably surprised because
rarely is it our motive to do
so. More often we hurt
other people as a result of
an unintentional action or
an unplanned or thoughtless.
comment. I believe this is
the case in the majority of
offenses, and based on that,
getting even would be
anything but. You can't
arrive at even by adding an
unintentional offense to a
well-planned retaliation..
Unfortunately, revenge
usually leads to a retaliation
of its own and the vicious
payback cycle continues.
This very often brings death
In the book of Romans
12:17,19-20, the Bible
addresses this issue: "Do,
not repay evil for evil. Do
not take revenge, my
friends, but leave room for
God's wrath, for it is
written: "It is mine to
avenge; I will repay," says


the Lord. On the contrary:
"If your enemy is hungry,
feed him; if he is thirsty,
give him something to
drink. In doing this, you
will heap burning coals on
his head."
According to this verse,
we are not to "get even" by
repaying evil for evil. Only
God knows the intentions
of a person's heart, so
maybe that's a good reason
to leave the avenging up to
him. In the original Greek
language of the New
Testament, the word
"avenge" actually means to
get justice. God is the only
One qualified to judge a
heart and pronounce a just,
unprejudiced sentence.
The last part of this
passage is most interesting,
so before you go planning
to put hot coals on
someone's head let's
understand what this refers
to. According to an ancient
Egyptian tradition, a person
desiring to exhibit a public
display of repentance would
carry a pan of burning
charcoal on their head. By
referring to this practice,
the apostle Paul is saying
that we should treat those
who have offended us or
caused us pain with
kindness. By doing so, it is
more likely they will
become ashamed of the way
they treated you, repent,
and change their ways.
That would be a much more
productive way of restoring
a relationship...and if their
offense was unintentional,
you haven't caused a much
bigger, one. So, if you start
plotting. revenge, remember
that it's best to leave that up
to God. The people that we
love are worth this effort
and so our own
hearts...because they matter.

Live as if we mean it


By Derek Maul

S. A couple of days ago I was
the featured program at an
". interdenominational prayer
I f breakfast. I enjoy taking
invitations to speak, and have
Sound myself standing in front
S-.-: of a variety of groups. Secular
S or sacred; young or old; it
doesn't matter they're all
going to get a variation on my
standard theme.
And my standard theme, regardless of the occasion, is
my passion .for living well, living faith out loud, living as if
I really mean it. The 50 men present listened politely for 25
minutes, asked a few good questions, purchased a few
copies of my book, and then meandered out to their cars to
get on with the day.
But -just before they left the very last thing I said
was this. "We're bombarded with so much information
about what it means to be people of faith. Instruction
books, bullet points, handy acronyms, formulas, rote
responses. To be honest that kind of living can quickly
become awkward, inauthentic, and burdensome....


"So today I want us to set all this aside. Instead, I want
to
challenge you all to do one thing, and to do it well:
Follow Jesus..." Sometimes I think those of us in the world
of organized church seriously over-complicate the
essentials of this "Road less traveled by" we call
Christianity. In fact, I'll go so far as to say that we've
created something that would be pretty-much
unrecognizable to those who watched the Master teach and
live in ancient times.
I'll go a step further, and I'll suggest that the religion so
many people in North America are walking away from
today has very little to do with Jesus at all. It's increasingly
evident that it's far more convenient to adhere to a set of
well-honed traditions than it is to take Jesus at his word
and simply follow.
That's why I'm more likely today to tell people I'm a
Jesus-follower than to merely say I'm a Christian.
Hopefully it's an accurate reflection of my witness.
Regardless, it's time that those of us who. wear our faith
on our sleeves did something to rehabilitate the public face
of the church Jesus loved into existence; a church that too
often tells the wrong story to a world that is hungry to hear
the truth and to know genuine love.
Peace, and genuine love

Multiply by dividing?


By David H. Matier
Doctor of Pastoral Counseling

No wonder the Southeast is
referred to as the "Bible Belt."
When I had the privilege of pastoring
in Clark Fork, Ida., we drove 30
miles to the church from our home.
In the 30 miles we only passed one
other church! In this area if you go
30 miles you pass 30 churches!
Now I am not complaining about
the number of churches but I am
concerned about the conditions under
which many of them have been
established. It is one thing when a
church authorizes a group of its
members to go off and establish a
new church. It's a different situation
when a group of church members get
bitter, angry, "spit and sputter," make
life miserable for the pastor, etc. and
go away from the main body inat'
resentful, hateful manner.
Most church splits happen for
ridiculous reasons. I heard of one
church split that started when one of
the men in the church was served a
larger portion at a church supper than
another man. The man that felt like
he didn't get his proper portion
became bitter. He acted immature,
like a child who didn't get his way!
He wouldn't drop it and
continued to gripe until
finally the church split.
This is just an example
of the foolishness that
church members let
themselves get involved A fa
ers wi
in, taking sides until it
causes a rupture in the
fellowship of the local mocrs
church. I have never


heard of a church splitting over a
doctrinal issue; it generally happens
because someone gets "sideways"
with someone else in the church.
The only reasons you should get
alarmed are: 1) immorality persists
in the church, and/or 2) it changes its
doctrinal stance. If one or more of
these things happen you have the
alternative of looking for another
fellowship but you don't have the
prerogative of causing disruption in
the local church. Your choices are:
1) Agree with the membership or 2)
look for a church you can agree with,
one that fits the criteria of a New
Testament church! You don't have
the right to disrupt the local church.
Remember, whether it is operating
scripturally or not it is the Church of
the Living God and God will deal
with His church in His time! He
didn't leave it up to you to change
the church unless it is a change you
are able to initiate according to the
particular church's by-laws. Do not
attempt to change a church in an
underhanded manner (sneaking
around to gain votes for your cause,
telling children how to vote etc.)
because you didn't get your way.
Don't get crossways because of the
color of the pastor's tie or because


~YFU


someone else got the position you
thought you deservedor a larger
portion at a church supper.
Not long ago I shared the Gospel
with a woman in a local fast food
establishment. She was
disenchanted with "the church" as a
child because she remembered a
"church fight" which led to a
"church split." She hasn't been back
to church since and I estimate her
age to be about 65. What a
difference could have been made in
this woman's life if the members of
her church would have conducted
themselves in a Christian (Christ-
like) manner!
Don't ever put yourself in a
position of causing or working with
others to cause a church split or to
oust a pastornunless you have a clear
Biblical mandate. It is a serious
thing to confront the church of God,
or for that matter, the man of God.

Black History Month, celebrated each
February, is celebrated in both the United
States and Canada. England holds their own
Black History Month every October. In the
United States, Black History Month was es-
tablished in 1976, though this was simply an
extension of Negro History Week, which
was established by Carter G. Woodson 50
years earlier. Woodson chose a week in Feb-
ruary that celebrated the birthdays of
renowned abolitionist Frederick Douglass
and former president Abraham Lincoln, fa-
mous for introducing measures that led to
the abolition of slavery after the U.S. Civil
War. While Woodson is widely credited with
starting what eventually became Black His-
tory Month, the origins of the celebration
may have begun earlier in two movements
that Woodson was involved with. A friend of
Woodson's, Mary Church Terrell, had been
honoring Douglass' birthday locally. In the
meantime, Woodson was also affiliated with
the African American collegiate fraternity
Omega Phi Psi, which established Negro
Achievement Week in 1924. Woodson's
contribution was to broaden the celebration,
making it more of a national event while
inviting both blacks and whites to celebrate,
hence the reason the week of Douglass' and
Lincoln's birthdays was chosen.

got his start as a volunteer
and student worker. During
high school he volunteered as a manager for the football
team and also worked in the summer program and senior
work programs. During football season he washed all the
uniforms. He also mowed the football field and painted
the athletic department practice rooms, among other tasks.
After his senior year he was mowing the football field
for the summer program when Spessard Boatright, the
school superintendent at the time, asked him if he wanted a
job.
"That's what got me in trouble. They seen my good works

knocking off when he was asked to take the job.
During his career with Suwannee County Schools
Bryant prepared all the fields for Suwannee
sporting events.
Paul Buchanan, a photographer who shoots
Suwannee sports, called Bryant the man
behind the scenes who quietly did his job.
"It's nice when you show up to the field
and it looks so immaculate," Buchanan
said. "It feels good for the home team. He
takes pride in his work. You see that in the
field."
Buchanan said Bryant maintained the
fields even though the schools hosted
multiple games for middle and high
school sports.
Buchanan also noted Bryant's oversight helped promote
safety on the field.
"At some schools it was like playing in a cow pasture," he
said, adding the grass was sparse and the field uneven -
conditions favorable for twisting an ankle.
Buchanan said Bryant was hard working, but easy going
and he was never seen without a smile on his face whether it
was on the field or off.

recognition of his retirement during the Suwannee/Columbia
football game.
"I started with a Boatright and ended with a Boatright,"
Bryant said of the school superintendents he worked under
- Spessard Boatright first, then Walter Boatright.
After retirement, Bryant only took a month off. He
now uses his landscape abilities at Land Creations in
Live Oak.
Bryant's wife is Marie. Bryant has three children

He said treating people how they want to be

America's new God: When politics trumps faith


By John W. Whitehead
"Nearly 30 years after religious
conservatives decided to re-enter
the political arena-after
abandoning it as 'dirty' and
leading to compromise-what do
they have to show for it? The
country remains sharply divided
and the reconciling message they
used to preach has been obscured
by the crass pursuit of the golden
ring of political power. In the end,
they got neither the power, nor
the Kingdom; only the glory and
even that is now fading."
-Cal Thomas, former vice
president of the Moral Majority

It's one thing for Christians -
or any other religion, for that
matter-to get involved in politics.
But it's a different matter
altogether when religious
individuals allow politics to take
precedence over their religious
beliefs. This is most evident as the
race for the White House heats up
and vocal Christians such as
James Dobson attempt to steer the
outcome by endorsing a particular
candidate. Yet I can't help but
wonder exactly what these
Christians are really putting their
faith in. Are they after greater
power and influence? Do they
think a Christian in the White
House will solve the problems that
plague our nation?
It hasn't done us much good yet.
As Frank Schaeffer, author of
Crazy for God, pointed out in a
recent editorial, "In 2000, we
elected a president who claimed
he believed God created the earth
and who, as president, put car
manufacturers and oil company's
interests ahead of caring for that
creation. We elected a pro-life
Republican Congress that did
nothing to actually care for
pregnant women and babies. And
they took their sincere evangelical
followers for granted, and played
them for suckers."
?avid Kuo who sered as
Special Assistant to President
Bush from 2001-2003, elaborates
on this in his book, Tempting


Faith, when he describes
the way in which the Bush
Administration
manipulated evangelical
Christians: "Rove's Public
Liaison office had a
religious outreach team in
constant contact with
evangelical and social
conservative groups about
every facet of the
president's policy and
political agenda. As part
of their outreach they held
weekly or more often,
as necessary -
conference calls to update
that community on events
and announcements while
simultaneously soliciting
their feedback."
Kuo continues, "This
network of people covered
virtually every area of
evangelical Christianity.
The calls began with an White
overview of what the
president would be JeO
talking about in the the,
coming week. If
necessary, participants
were asked to talk to their (Ma
people about whatever
issue was pending.
Talking points were
distributed and advice hel
was solicited. That advice (eve
rarely went much further pea
than the conference call. pow
There wasn't any malice
or negligence behind this.
It was just that the true
purpose of these calls was to keep
prominent social conservatives
and their groups or audiences
happy. In most ways it wasn't a
tough sell."
In fact, Kuo says, it wasn't
difficult to convince Christians
that President Bush was on the
right side of virtually any tactic.
"It should have been a whole lot
harder because Christians should
have demanded a whole lot mote.
But all too often., hen put before
power, Christian leaders wilt."
Thus, we get to the heart of the
problem when religion and

politics merge. Rarely can the
coexist without one trumping t
other, Unfortunately, all too ofi
politics will trump religion. Th
result, as we have seen, is that
religious individuals-Christians
particular-smother their faith a
become servants to political
power. Yet for the Christian,
politics and faith should never

equal loyalties.
This is not to say that religion

less the He was apolitical. In a
'Blessed sense, he could even be
described as being anti-
politics, given his
tendency to attack and
ey undermine political power. He had
he no qualms about getting in
ten, politicians' faces, so to speak.
.e Even with his back ripped open
and bleeding, Jesus stood before

spoke truth to power: "You could

admonished him.
Jesus understood that the
)us legitimate use of power does not
in include using it to 'impose one's
will upon others. From the
Christian standpoint, the proper


use of power is to seek justice for
all. Thus, if Christianity is to serve
its true purpose and be a moral
compass of society, Christians
must remain clear of the
constraints and compromises
entailed in political affiliation and
take stands for truth. Inevitably,
speaking truth to power will mean
standing outside the political
establishment and criticizing the
political Herods of this world, i.e.,
the government and its policies.
When it comes right down to it,
the most appropriate role of
religion in politics lies in its
ability to define moral issues and
speak truth to power. The voice of
moral authority, enabled and
enhanced by its spiritual roots and
raised without dependence upon
the legitimacy of the state, will
always be the highest expression
of true freedom.

RELIGION


Guess who's calling at


r r


By the Rev. James L. Snyder
Among the many
traditions and rituals
observed around the world
one holds a special place
with the Gracious Mistress
of a Parsonage and Yours
Truly. Since I am accused
of breaking everything in
our house, I guess it will
not hurt if I break the
silence on this one.
The one great ritual we
practiced religiously at our
house is dinner. Other
things and activities in our
society have replaced
dinner today and few
families actually eat dinner
at home on anything like a
regular basis.
Nothing is more sacred to
my wife and me than
religiously observing the
daily ritual of dinner. I
know some people are very
careless about their dinner.
Rarely do they give much
thought to the religious
implications of dinner,
which may be one reason
our country is in such a
moral decline. Little chance
this will happen at our
house.
In our humble domicile,
we delight in celebrating
this daily festival with all
the delicious rituals that go
along with it. Woe be unto
the uninvited intruder. Yet,
certain unscrupulous people
have injected themselves
into this holy shrine of ours.
This is not been too much
of a problem until recently.
It started rather slow and
then quickly developed into
a phone-ringing marathon.
If the phone rings at
dinnertime it had better be a
life or death situation or it
just might end that way.
Usually, the phone
ringing begins when we sit
down for the evening dinner
ritual. No sooner do Ifegini
to take the first bite when
the intrusions begin. It all
came to a head last
Thursday. We had just sat
down when the telephone
rang. I got up to answer it.
"Hello," I reverently
whispered into the
telephone careful not to
break the religious euphoria
of the moment.
"Hello," a very cheery
voice said, "Mr. Snyder
how are you today?"
For the life of me, I could
not place the voice. I looked
at the phone ID to see who
was calling and it only said
"Private." It was somebody
who knew me and was


expecting me to know them.
I hate situations like this. I
know my old "memory-
machine" has not been
running on all eight
cylinders for years, but it is
really embarrassing to
forget someone's name. I
usually can remember a
face but I can never put a
name to that face.
I can put a name to a face
all right, just not the right
name. People are rather
funny about these things.
They want their name to go
with their face. Just
between you and me, if I
had some people's face I
would not want to put my
name to it.
I could only assume this
was a person that knew me
very well and that I knew
them as well. So I began
telling them how I was
doing, careful to listen for
any clues that might trigger
the old memory cells, in
disclosing the identity of
the person at the other end
of the phone. I'm looking
forward to the time when
all phones are wired for
video so that you can see
whom you are talking to.
When I caught my breath,
the person at the other end
of the line jumped into the
conversation.
"Mr. Snyder, I would like
to talk to you about
something rather
important."
With this clue, I knew it
was no friend of mine. No
friend of mine has anything
that important to say to me
that they would interrupt
my dinner ritual. All my
friends (both of them) know
not to call me at dinnertime.
I do not call them when
they are watching their
soaps, and they do not call
me when I am eating my
dinner. It is a rule between
friends.
At this time of day what
could be more important
than observing my daily
dinner ritual?
"Mr. Snyder, I would like
to tell you about..." Then
she mentioned some
politician who was running
for president of the United
States. She proceeded also
to tell me how much this
particular politician
understood my problems.
Furthermore, she assured
me that this particular
politician would do
everything possible to solve
my problems.
"Mr. Snyder, you can


count on [politician's
name], can he count on you
come Election Day?"
"How will your politician
solve the problem with my
evening dinner ritual?" I
said rather sarcastically.
"Say what?" A very
confused voice said.
"The problem with my
evening dinner ritual," I
said with a little more
emphasis than normal.
"What's the problem with
your evening dinner?" a
confused voice asked.
"Being interrupted by
people with nothing better
.to do than tell me about
some politician I've never
heard of before."
The click at the other end
of the phone line released
me from the drudgery of
listening to political-pitter-
patter so I could resume my
sacred ritual of eating my
dinner.
Fortunately, God is not


like some political
telemarketer trying to sell a
bill of goods about someone
you do not know very much
about. Patiently, he is
seeking our attention. The
Bible says, "Behold, I stand
at the door, and knock: if
any man hear my voice, and
open the door, I will come
in to him, and will sup with
him, and he with me."
(Revelation 3: 20 KJV).
God never intrudes, but
invites you to allow Him to
come into your life and
make all the difference in
the world.

because my w ife always tells me to
slow down. But last week. despite
my speed, everyone was passing me.
As I started to pick up the pace, the
flashing lights of a police car pulled
me over to the side. The officer pro-
ceeded to wnte me a ticket for speed-
ing %w while my w ife and son sat
patiently.
In an attempt to teach our son a
lesson, my wife asked. "Do you
know wh\h Daddy was pulled over?"
Unfortunately, her lesson didn't go
Sas planned. Even the officer laughed
I hen my, son replied, "Sure, because
Sthe policeman couldn't catch the
other cars."
S Thanks to Mtichael R
