4-H


By Mary Sowerby
UF Regiortal Dairy Extension


4-H is a community of young -.
people, in Suwannee County,
across America and around the
world, who are learning
leadership, citizenship and life
skills.
Did you happen to read the
article in last Friday's Suwannee
Democrat entitled, "A Big Day
for the Robodogs?"
Suwannee 4-H Robodogs is a
4-H club whose members focus
not on steers or photography, but
building motorized LEGO robots to compete
in First LEGO League competitions. Since
September, the Robodogs have been
meeting twice weekly at the Suwannee
County Extension Office computer lab,
creating robots to complete missions
assigned by the First LEGO League.
What are these young people learning
from participating in, this club?

1. Technical knowledge about
computers and writing computer programs;
about physics, frictional resistance,
trajectories (you should see the arm they
created to flop a "solar panel" on a LEGO
house); about how battery power can
influence the speed and efficiency of their
robots; and how multi-tasking can save time,
so they can get all the missions they are
assigned done in 2.5 minutes of contest
time.

OK, I confess, I have cumulatively spent
hours this past fall and winter watching this


group slowly
perfect their
project to its
winning level. It
has been
fascinating and
occasionally
hilarious. That
LEGO solar panel
has been nearly
launched into
earth orbit on
initial trials, but
the Robodogs
studied why, made
course corrections,
and solved the
problem.


2. Patience -
Few things are more frustrating than a
robotic mission which has run perfectly
eight times, but on trial nine, will not work
at all. Battery influence was finally
determined as one of the major reasons for
this aggravation, but that was only learned
by patient trial and error.

3. Teamwork and leadership within the
team A five-member team is required to
participate in the competitions and every
member works together to fulfill the
missions and make their team presentation.

4. Public speaking The team presentation
is oral and their PowerPoint, titled "LEGO
wars," (a take-off of Star Wars) serves as
background for team acting as well as
speaking.

5. Perseverance This is the third year the


Robodogs
have been
competing in

Stephen Combs' music

6. Sportsmanship We have all se
been to awards ceremonies in which
feel like booing the top winner inste
cheering because of their poor
sportsmanship. That "everyone in th
gymnasium broke out singing the R
team song, 'Who Let the Dogs Out?
celebration when the Suwannee 4-H
Robodog team was called out to rec
Director's Award," speaks highly of
sportsmanship.

7. Friendship When you work, p
laugh and cry with others, you inevi
become fast friends and these youth
great friends.

It does not matter what project or

from dairy to shooting sports to sew

Your seedlings will need
moisture, but they cannot be over
watered. Use a fine spray of water
so as hot to disturb the seeds. The
seeds must never be allowed to;dry
out. A sheet of plastic wrap
extended over the top of the
container will keep moisture in,
but it must be loosely fastened so
as not to inhibit air circulation. A
single sheet of newspaper cut to
size will also do, and yiu can
water right over the newspaper.
The containers should be placed in
a warm shady place until the seeds
have germinated, at which point
coverings must be removed and
seedlings placed in aibright sunny
spot to encourage sturdiness.
Thinning is an absolute must!
Overcrowding is a major cause of

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 of 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.

OPINION

CORN]


BY SONNY NOBLES
I hope everyone, had a special'
Valentine's Day. There are hundreds
of days set aside to commemorate or
celebrate the first one thing or the oth-
er. It's good to have a day devoted to
just express our feelings of fondness
and love towards others. We are
taught to "love one another." Valen-
tine's may be a good time to mend
fences and heal wounds. Personally, if
I have wronged anyone, hurt your
feelings or made you mad, I'm sorry
and I apologize. If I owe you money,
well that's another story.
The project to realign and widen
Pinewood.Drive and Walker Avenue
and the paving of Walker to Bass
Road is continuing. This project is the
result of several years of planning by
the School Traffic Circulation Com-
mittee, which is comprised of repre-
sentatives from the city of Live Oak,
Suwannee County and the school
,board. Greg Scott was instrumental in
promoting this project and helped
move it along. Rights of way are be-
ing secured and surveys completed.
On the city's part, utilities will have to
be relocated along with the reconfig-
uration of the traffic signal at the in-
tersection. The Florida Department of
Transportation is providing $656,100
toward this project over a three year
period. The county and city will fund
the remainder of the cost. As you are
aware, the traffic congestion at this in-
tersection during certain time's is
great The purpose of this project is to
help alleviate the congestion and
make this intersection safe for the
traveling public and the hundreds of
kids who walk in the area. As our
community grows, this project will
become increasingly beneficial to
everyone's safety and convenience in
the future.
Congratulations to the District
Teacher of the Year, Carol Cannon
and School Related Employee of the
Year Award, Margie Dedge. Suwan-
nee County is blessed with very dedi-
cated and competent teachers and
support personnel. It was very tough
to be in the classroom when I was a
teacher and is even more so today.
With all of the demands on teachers
today, many have become disillu-
sioned with 'their jobs but keep on
keeping on in a dedicated manner. We
are all accountable in our jobs as we
should be. The FCAT has raised the
accountability to almost an unbear-
able level. Teachers today, as well as I
when I was teaching, have to be so
conscious of the scores. That's okay.
When it gets to the point when every-
thing revolves around and is dictated
by FCAT scores, including state fund-
ing, that's where the problem arises..
Support staff in the school system are
so important. Those involved in food
service, maintenance, transportation,
clerical and teacher aides are an inte-
gral part in making everything work.
Let's not forget administration. They
catch much of the heat when things
don't work exactly as they should.
Express your appreciation to your
school employees for a JOB WELL
DONE. By the way, FCAT testing
started last week. The heat is on.
Last week the schools experienced
the "100th day of school." Teachers
use this as an opportunity for a learn-
ing experience in the lower grades.
These "least of the rug rats" bring 100
of something to be used in their math
lessons. It could be cereal, pennies or
whatever. It probably would be sur-


uprising and even shocking
'S what some might bring.
The school year is half
ER over. I am in awe of teach-
ers in the lower grades.
My grandson Bevan is in
the first grade. It is amaz-
ing how well he is reading
in just 100 days. Thanks
Amy Williams for your
dedicated teaching of my
grandson.
Bids were opened last week for the
rehabilitation of "Old City Hall." This
first phase will include the rehab of
the first floor section of the building.
Electrical upgrade, floor sanding and
the repair of plaster walls and ceilings
will be made. Probably the most im-
portant element in this first phase of
the rehab is the repair of the windows
in the building. Plans are to make this
the home of the Suwannee County
Chamber of Commerce. Chamber
members are excited about making
this historical building their home. As
you may or may not remember, the
city of Live Oak was ranked seventh
on the list to receive another grant
from the state historical folks. This is
all contingent upon the amount of leg-
islative appropriations for these pro-
jects. We feel very confident that we
will be in the money for this next
grant. The second phase will include
an elevator, heat/air conditioning the
upstairs and restoration to the fire
bays. Whatever restoration takes
place, it has to maintain the historical
integrity of the building. The low bid
for the project was $180,000.
The closing on the sale of the
Daniels Funeral Home building to the
city is slated for Feb. 27. We look for-
ward to having this much needed ad-
ditional room. The city is bursting at
the seams for lack of office and stor-
age space. Some of our records have
been stored at Old City Hall. With the
restoration, this space will go away.
Plans are to relocate the Building De-
partment, Code Enforcement and the
Development Manager to the new fa-
cility. It will also provide additional
meeting and conference space. As the
city grows, this building will become
more and more important in the fu-
ture. I again praise the council for this
farsighted action in acquiring this
building.
The city received a preliminary es-
timate from the Property Appraiser's
office on the financial impact of
Amendment I. A $9,000,000 reduc-
tion of taxable property is projected.
This equates to approximately a
$55,000 reduction of income from ad
valorem taxes. It is felt that the new
construction that has taken place in
the city recently and going on the tax
role next year, will make up for these
lost dollars.
The 60th annual banquet of the
Suwannee County Chamber of Com-
merce was a fine affair. Congratula-
tions to Mrs. Shirley Hatch and Mrs.
Carolyn Purdy as award winners.
Both are certainly deserving and wor-
thy of their recognition. Ms. Shirley
and Mr. Leon were close friends of
my parents. I can remember spending
the night with the Hatches and going
bird hunting with Mr. Leon and the
boys the next day. They are both spe-
cial people and have a special place of
fondness in my heart. Carolyn was a
classmate of mine. Three things I es-
pecially remember about her are her
dynamo energy, her laugh and her
love for horses. All we heard from her
in the 6th grade was horses, horses,
horses. I "admare"' both of these val-,
ued citizens.
The Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District held a drought
preparation workshop. last week to
discuss the drought conditions in our
area. The District wishes to focus on
education and not enforcement. You
will hear more concerning this matter
in the future.


Rant


Want to vent?

Our hotline is

open 24/7.

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

Editor's note: We appreciate your comments,
folks, but please try to keep them brief. We want
to publish as many points of view as possible,
and some of the longer entries have, on occa-
sion, been omitted due to space limitations. And
please be sure to speak clearly when leaving
your message. If we can't understand you, we
can't publish your opinion.
About a hundred clearly spoken words (or
about 30-45 seconds' worth) should be enough
to get your point across.

Perhaps the staff of the Suwannee Democrat
is unaware, but the Spirit of Suwannee Music
Park hosts numerous music festivals besides the
country jam. There is the Magnolia Festival,
Spring Fest, Wanee Festival, two biker festivals,
plus last year the park hosted the Bear Creek
Festival and The Parrot Head club hosted an
event. There are also bluegrass and gospel
events at the park. It would be nice if the paper
would promote ALL of the music festivals fea-
tured at the S.O.S. and not just the country jam.
I understand that country music is popular in
this area, but not everyone likes their music with
twang. Please consider promoting rock, folk,
roots and other musical styles with as much en-
thusiasm as you do for country and western. By
the way, for music fans who would like to know
about ALL of the festivals planned this year at
the S.O.S. visit musicliveshere.com.

The Bright Futures'scholarshipi program was ,,
presented to the citizens of Florida as a scholar-
ship program for those who excelled academi-
cally. Don't change it based on need. This is not
a charity.

With all the restrictions Water Management is
placing on the community, are they still issuing
permits for irrigation systems?

This is in response to Rant & Rave on Friday,
Feb 15 about the person who called to gripe
about the drought being caused by the pivot irri-
gation systems. That is completely ignorant of
the person. Suwannee County was founded on
and has always been based on agriculture. And
then to gripe about' the irrigation' of crops as the
main stay of the economy of Suwannee County
is just ridiculous. The over-development of the
area and over-development in South Florida has
caused the drought in Florida, not agriculture.

This is in reference to the salary raises with
two employees of the city. The administrator.
bought the. expensive SUV without prior ap-
proval and now he is giving these enormous pay
increases. In my life I have never heard of such
foolishness. Maybe they are underpaid, but nev-
er give an increase such as this at this time. At
what time? My recommendation is to get rid of
this so-called administrator. He needs a one-way
ticket right now. Thank you and I appreciate it.

I have a suggestion for the mayor, city admnin-
istrator, and the public works director. If you did
the crime, it's time to resign.

The mayor and the city administrator are paid
to take care of the welfare of the city. This does
not entitle them to break the rules or reward

themselves with fancy cars nor does it allow
them to do favors for their friends with taxpay-
ers' money. Shame on them.

I think it's time our city consider a skateboard
park for all these children who are actively try-
ing to find a place to engage in a healthy activi-
ty.

Why does our city administrator have sudden
memory lapses when we talk about doing work
on private property? He couldn't recall that we
have put pipe in for Florida Power.and then his
memory seemed to fail him about sending fire
trucks out to Silas Oaks. Now once again he has
no recollection of trucks going to Gold Kist.
You better be careful, this instant amnesia must
be contagious, because the mayor has caught it
too.

Hi, first let me congratulate you on putting the
story about teen pregnancy on the front page. I
thought that story would get a lot of attention,
but seems like only one letter to the editor was
the response. The writer of the letter seemed to
think that girls get pregnant because there are no
activities for teens. I don't think that's the prob-
lem. In a county where there is literally a church
on every corner, religion doesn't seem to be the
answer either. The schools aren't allowed to re-
ally teach more than just abstinence and God
forbid they should give out birth control. All I.
know is that parents need to wake up and realize
that anyone's daughter can become pregnant
and parents need to build self esteem into their
daughters so she don't have to rely on the sweet
talk of a boy who makes her do things she real-
ly doesn't want to do but really doesn't know
how to say no. I think a lot more discussion at-
tention needs to be brought to the problem.,
m mI
Who is at the helm? The mayor is elected by
the people to represent them and city council-
men are elected for the same reason. All of them
are governed by rules and regulations in tteir re-
spective positions. An administrator is approved
by the city council for his position in city gov-
ernment, and it is his responsibility though the
mayor and city council who can also fire him for
any wrongdoing. When an administrator thinks
he can do whatever pleases him and takes that
position I won't go by the council rules and
regulations and request a SUV, I'll just buy one
I like and if I feel like giving my employees a
raise that exceeds the 10% cap, so be it. Whose
money is it, anyway? And if I'm challenged it's
easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. I
wonder if he ever had a business, how many of
his employees received a29.4% raise? It's using
poor management skills claiming your employ-
ees are irreplaceable. The city would not shut
down if they had to leave. However, we only
have to look in the mirror to see the people to
blame. We keep electing the same people over
and over even.if their job performance is bad.
And if we don't wise up all of us can sit back
and watch our tax money fly away.

Restrict water use on farmers! I have read
comments and heard a lady. on the news this
morning. Excuse us for trying to put food on
your table. So if you people would rather water
your lawns.than eat, go for it. Take our irrigation
away and let's just take your food off the table.

of the United States.

Get


ready to


stop at


CR49
A new traffic signal is
scheduled to be in full op-
eration next week on US
90 east of Live Oak at the
intersection of CR 49.
The signal has been on
flash for the past year
awaiting the completion of
a pre-emption phase re-
quired by CSX Trans-
portation to prevent vehi-
cles from getting a green
light to cross the railroad
tracks north of the inter-
section when trains are
crossing.
The signal's full opera-
tion is scheduled to take
place Tuesday, Feb. 26.
Once the traffic signal is
fully operational, the stop
signs on County Road 49
will be removed and stop
bars will be painted on the
roadway at the intersec-
tion.
The signal will be acti-
vated by sensors embed-
ded in the pavement,
which detect vehicles
waiting at the stop bar, and
will allow the signal to
turn green for vehicles
Wv vhen activated.
Motorists should use-
caution in the area until
everyone becomes accus-
tomed to the new signal.
Motorists on US 90 who
were not stopped at the
signal before, may need to
slow down at the intersec-
tion and prepare to stop
once it is set on full opera-
ton.
Traffic averages about
6,400 vehicles a day in this
section of US 90.

a cedar chest. Tiny script let-
ters spelling "Jacksonville,
NC" were burned into one
end. Someone had painted
the box white, and it looked
like a rectangular label had
been stuck on the top left
corner. Where the label had
been, flecks of green and
blue paint peeked through,
like layers of the past.
Ayestaran assumed it had
washed up after some recent
storms.
"I'd walked that same
stretch of beach the week
before and it wasn't there."

Ayestaran walks every
day the weather cooperates.
He logs almost 800 miles a
year, alone and in silence.
His son bought him an iPod
and Ayestaran tried it for a
while. "But I found," he
said, "there is nothing like
listening to yourself."
Hearty and spry, his face
tomato-red from the sun,
Ayestaran still works part-
time at All Children's Hos-
pital. He spends vacations
trekking through Europe.
He and his wife, Clara,
grew up in the Basque re-
gion of Spain and have lived
in Florida for 30 years. The
porch on their Redington
Shores condo is filled with
shells and crabs he has
found on his hikes. But he
had never come across any-
thing like that box.

He set it on the sand and
raised the lid. Seawater had
seeped inside and mixed
with something else. Every-
thing in the box was mired
in a muddy paste. ,
Ayestaran put his hand
into the mixture and studied
it. Those thick, hard flakes
weren't gains of sand.
"They were shards of
bones," the doctor said.
fluman ashes."
He had found someone's
remains, surrounded by
scattered fragments of a life.

Ask a man what's in his
wallet, and you begin to
know him. Ask a woman
what's in her purse and you
usually find out too much.
The contents of this box
also told a story but what
was the story? On the deck
of his condo, Ayestaran sift-
ed through the box. He
rinsed each object, set it to


dry.
Item No. 1: A small Amer-
ican flag, the wooden pole
'snapped in half. Had. this
person been a veteran? A
new citizen? A staunch patri-
ot?
Item No. 2: A Wilson
watch with barnacles fram-
ing the cracked face. The
date had stopped at 28. Time
stood still at 2:08.
Item No. 3: A plastic
rosary,, ivory-colored. The
person must have been
Catholic, Ayestaran said.
Item No. 4: A rusty coin
engraved on both sides. 'To
thine own self be true. Re-
covery. Service. Unity. II," it
said. "Day at a time," said
the other side, above a
prayer. "Someone told me
that is to celebrate sobriety,"
said Ayestaran. Was the per-
son a member of Alcoholics
Anonymous?
Item No. 5: A plastic pan-
ther, or jaguar, as big as his
finger. Was it a symbol of
someone's nickname? The
prized toy of a child?
Item No. 6: A plastic hair
clip, black with swaths of
gold paint. Was it a woman
who had died? "I guess it
could have been from a man,
too," Ayestaran said. "I
mean, if he had been a hippie
or something ..."
Item No. 7: A white can-
dle, as long as a pencil, thick
as a thumb, the wick burned
black. "A funeral candle,"
Clara Ayestaran said.
Item No. 8: Two yellowed
clippings from the Suwannee
Democrat in Live Oak, wa-
ter-soaked but still legible.

No dates were on the stories,
but both were commemora-

11, 2001 attacks on New
York City, though they didn't
name specific victims. One
article began: 'The greatest
tragedy to ever hit the Amer-
ican shores happened almost
a year ago.. .." Whoever the
person was, Ayestaran decid-
ed, he must have been con-
nected to 9/11.
"Maybe he came from
Live Oak," Ayestaran mused.
"Or maybe someone who
loved him lived there."
Item No. 9: What once had
been a 4 by 6 photo was now
a blank sheet of thick paper,
the image erased by water
and time. Eckerd 7508, No.
6, was stamped on the back.
Item No. 10: A faded Po-
laroid, the bottom half peel-
ing like sunburned skin. On
the left side of the snapshot,
a man with a thick, dark
moustache is standing erect.
Tall and lean, he could be 20
or 40. He's wearing a broad-
shouldered jacket, like the
Members Only style of the
'80s. Beside him, a dark-
haired child of 7 to 10 is
straddling a white bike.
Whoever the people in the

"If you believe in another
dimension, then the soul of
this person is still around,"
Ayestaran said, looking
again at the waterlogged Po-

"Whoever it is must have

for some reason. I can't just

I want the family to know

4-H club tours Live Oak's new


wastewater treatment facility


The Live Oak Learners 4-H Club visited the
new wastewater treatment plant in Live Oak on
Jan. 22 for a tour of the facility. Their objective
was to learn about wastewater treatment and
reuse. Haskell Corporation representatives Mike
Watson and Steve Eberts, with the wastewater
treatment plant's OMI operator Kathy McSpar-
ren, gave a tour of the facility.
During the visit, Live Oak Learners learned
how the water is filtered to eliminate solids and
inorganic materials. Bacteria to helps clean the
water by feeding on the remaining organic mat-
ter in the water. After the water passes through


the chlorine contact filter, it can then be used for
irrigation. The students also learned that the fa-
cility, built by the Haskell Corporation of Jack-
sonville, was opened May 2007. Further con-
struction is being planned to expand the facili-
ties.
The Live Oak Learners 4-H Club is a home
school club that meets the first Thursday of each
month at the Suwannee County Extension Of-
fice. The group of students is currently studying
water conservation and reuse.

Kerr, 386-397-2692.

Water rules: How will they be enforced?


Continued From Page 1A

Oak are working in conjunc-
tion with water management
to draft an ordinance to en-
force restrictions.
County Coordinator John-
ny Wooley said at Tuesday's
commission meeting that
though state statute makes it
a second-degree misde-
meanor to violate the restric-
tions, water management has
requested the counties in its
district adopt civil penalties
for violating the policy.
Wooley said in other areas
of the state facing water re-
strictions the state attorney's
office prosecutes violators.
"[In the southwest they're]
still going through the court
on 1,800 and something vio-
lations, so that's not some-
thing that [water manage-
ment] wants to get into," he
said.


Commissioner Ivie Fowler
was concerned that water
management wanted the
county to put an ordinance in
place rather than use state
laws to prosecute violators.
"If you step across the
street and ask the state attor-
ney where it's going to get on
the calendar, I assure you if
somebody's violating a
worse statute it's not going to
be a high priority to climb the
calendar in the courtroom,"
Wooley said.
"I'm certainly not real en-
thused about getting in their
enforcement management
and I don't have any control
over anything [water man-
agement] does," Fowler said.
Jon Dinges, resource man-
agement director for Suwan-
nee River Water Manage-
ment District, said Thursday
though using patrol cars and
code enforcement are options

officer Gary Edwards, the in-
vestigation is ongoing and
the three remain on suspen-
sion from school. Edwards
said that an eighth grade stu-
dent was found in an unau-
thorized area of the school by
Assistant Principal/Dean
Gary Caldwell. Caldwell told
Edwards that when he ques-
tioned the student he seemed
nervous and fidgety. Cald-
well then searched the stu-
dent and found a homemade
pipe that tested positive for
marijuana, according to re-
ports. Found in the student's
book bag were several empty.
baggies, which authorities
said were likely used to store
marijuana. The student
claimed the articles were not
his.
Later that day a student
who had checked out of
school was allegedly seen
throwing something into the
shrubs in the front of the
school.
The objects thrown away
were hollowed-out felt tip
markers used to conceal mar-
ijuana, according to Ed-
wards. Marijuana is placed in
a plastic bag that is then in-
serted into the marker, Ed-
wards said. He said that sev-
en bags were found contain-
ing marijuana.


Later that day the student
was reportedly seen looking
for the markers in the shrubs.
Two students the one who
allegedly tossed the markers
into the shrubs, along with
another eighth grader seen in
the vicinity were later ques-
tioned in front of their par-
ents, at which point they ad-
mitted they got the marijuana
from the first student, accord-
ing to Edwards. It is undeter-
mined whether the pot was
sold or given away.
All three students have
been released into the cus-
tody of their parents. Charges
from by the Dept. of Juvenile
Justice are pending, however.
"Our goal is to maintain a
drug free environment," Ed-
wards said. "With a thousand
kids around, things are going
to happen."
Edwards said this was an
isolated incident and not a
widespread problem at the
school.
Sheriff Tony Cameron said
that the students are taught
life skills including how to
avoid drugs in the class-
room at SMS.
"Deputy sheriff school re-
source officers teach about
peer pressure, bullying and
drugs," Cameron said. He
said kids are also taught to
come forward and report sus-
picious behavior.


to police water restrictions,
for now they want to rely on
neighbors to issue complaint
calls, as well as a campaign to
educate the public on the
drought. While violators can
be cited and fined, Dinges
said they want to reserve such
actions for those who exces-
sively violate the restrictions,
at least to start with.
"We're not asking people to
call and report violations, but
the assumption is that neigh-
bors will call," Cindy John-
son, water management com-
munications coordinator, said
Thursday. "We're looking at
people regulating and polic-
ing themselves."
A toll-free number will be
available for reporting viola-
tors, as well as to answer
questions about the restric-
tions.
Dinges said the drought is
ongoing and serious.
"We continue to set
groundwater lows across the
district," Dinges said, adding
the area is facing a 28-inch
rainfall deficit.
Dinges said the National
Weather Service is forecast-
ing a dry March, April and
May.
"We're low now and the
likelihood we'll not get much
rain is the reason folks need to
begin conserving water and
abiding by the restrictions,"
he said.
The water management
governing board will draft fi-
nal guidelines for a water
shortage order in March.
Johnson said at this point
the district is considering lim-
iting residential water use to


two days per week. Watering
will be restricted between 10
a.m. and 4 p.m. Overhead ir-
rigation systems in agricul-
ture will also be prohibited
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.


Livestock water users should
voluntarily reduce usage. Wa-
tering of new lawns and land-
scaping and the use of treated
wastewater will not be re-
stricted.

Many residents who lose power may turn to
emergency generators to ensure a continuous flow
of electricity to refrigerators, freezers, lights, fans
and other appliances. SVEC urges residents to
exercise extreme caution. While generators are a
convenience in keeping appliances running during
storm-related outages, they can also create hazards
for homeowners and electric utility workers.

When operating a generator:

Guilty verdict in shooting
Continued From Page 1A

Arnold was booked into the Suwannee County Jail on
charges of attempted murder II with a firearm, shooting into an
occupied vehicle and possession of a firearm by a felon.
Sheriff Tony Cameron said Brown showed up unwelcome at
the home of Arnold and his wife in violation of a restraining, or-
der. Brown was a former boyfriend of Arnold's wife, said
Cameron. Arnold came home to find Brown at the home and
fired 13 shots at the victim, wounding him in the neck, leg and
arm with a handgun, said Cameron. Arnold also fired several
rounds into Brown's car, occupied by Brown and James Lee
Grant Owens, say reports.
Brown has since recovered from his wounds, said Cameron.
The jury found Arnold guilty of attempted murder in the sec-
ond degree and guilty of shooting a firearm at, within or into
an occupied vehicle. He will be sentenced April 3.

Babe Ruth baseball gets $12,000 from town council


By Jeff Waters
BRANFORD The Bran-
ford' Town council voted
unanimously Feb. 12 to
give the Branford Babe
Ruth Baseball League
$12,000 for the 2008 season
and $1,000 to the Miss
Suwannee River Valley
program.
According to Brian
Lewis, of the League, there
aren't enough sponsors
this season.
"We are not getting mon-
ey from the sponsors that
we were hoping to get,"


Lewis said at the meeting.' was needed. The extra


"It costs, unfortunately, a
lot for us to play."
The 2008 budget for the
league shows a deficit of
about $9,200. According to
Lewis, of the 13 teams only
eight have sponsors. Lewis
said that the league had to
raise player fees from $50
to $60 to make up for loss-
es. .
Councilwoman Shirley
Clark questioned whether
the league even needed the
extra money. Lewis said he
already budgeted what


amount was surplus. This
will give the league close to
$3,000 extra to use for
equipment or other needs.
"It seems to me like this
program keeps kids out of
trouble," council president
Joe Cannon said of the
,sports league.
The council also voted to
give the Miss Suwannee
River Valley scholarship
fund $1,000, even though
the executive director of the
program, Diane Walker
Saunders, asked the council


for a little more. "Last year
you gave us $1,000, we
would like to have $2,500 if
you can do that," Saunders
said. "We give $3,400 a year
in scholarships alone."
Cannon said the pro-
gram is budgeted for only
$1,000 and he did not feel
the council should give
anything at all. "I was get-
ting to the point in the past
recommending the council
not giving anything, 'cause
I don't see where we [the
town] get anything out of
it," Cannon said.


Saunders said that peo-
ple from all over the
pageant's service area
came to Branford last year
and spent money in the
town for two days. She
said the program also
keeps a lot of' girls out of
trouble, adding to what
Cannon said about the
Babe Ruth League.
"You have to make the
point too that this is our
youth down here, we have
kids playing ball but we
also have young ladies
here working to get schol-


arships," Clark said.
Cannon added that it is
different than the Babe
Ruth League. "You might
have three or four girls in
Branford competing in the
pageant where you have
say 181 kids for Babe
Ruth," he said. "So you are
looking at two different
things."
The Babe Ruth League
starts its regular season
March 8, and the Miss
Suwannee River Valley
pageant is Feb. 23 at Bran-
ford High.

ford and her seven-year-
old son, Jordan Gibbons,
were lifeflighted to Shands
at UF, where she later died
from her injuries.
Philpot left his car and
fled into the woods, ac-
cording to CCSO. The ini-
tial investigation by FHP
indicated the accident was
a random head-on colli-
sion, but then it was deter-
mined that Philpot and
Pafford knew each other.
Philpot had been released
from the Florida Depart-
ment of Corrections in May
2007 after serving a prison
sentence for false imprison-
ment and aggravated as-
sault of Pafford, according
to CCSO.
.The two agencies
searched for Philpot with
the assistance of canine
teams from the Baker Cor-
rections Institute and the
Fish and Wildlife Commis-
sion. The dogs led law en-
forcement officers to an
area where Philpot may
have been picked up by a
vehicle, according to
CCSO. Evidence at the
scene indicates Philpot
may have been injured and
may seek medical care. Ex-
treme caution should be
used in any contact with
Philpot, according to
CCSO.
Philpot was arrested in
2001 for attempted first-de-
gree murder and carrying a
concealed weapon and in
2002 for kidnapping while
armed and aggravated as-
sault with a deadly
weapon, according to a re-
port from www.columbia-
clerk.com. In 2005 he was
sentenced to two years and
five months for false im-
prisonment and battery
(domestic violence), the re-
port states.

under his belt as well. "We
had a really good team this
year," Cone added.
Laxton called it "a
pleasure" to coach Cone.

of him," he said.

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Black history sports pioneers


Sportabout
Tom Daniels

It would be
impossible to
mention all the great
black athletes that
have dotted our
country.
Their are certainly
some that need
mention from my
childhood. I'never
even thought about
Wilt Chamberlain
being black, I just
thought about how
big he was and how
good a basketball
player he was. They
changed the rules
because of him and
people forget he
averaged 50 points a
game.
His nemesis was
Bill Russell. The first
black NBA coach
never thought of it as
a black thing, just a
basketball thing. The
Big 0, Oscar
Robertson, had triple


doubles almost every
night, but no one was
making a big deal of
it, or for that matter,
black players in the
NBA.
When going to a
Giants football game
you knew you were
going to see black
athletes and that
certainly wasn't a
shock. Watching Jim
Brown eat Sam
Huff's lunch, that was
a shock. The Giants
had Rosey Grier, one
of the first 300-
pounders and an All
Pro. Emlen Tunnell,
the first black Giant,
was the secondary
coach. The db's were
called Emlen's
Gremlins. They
included two whites,
Dick Lynch and Dick
Pesonen, a black,
Erich Barnes, and a
Native American.
Jimmy Patton. Sitting
amongst the 60,000 at
Yankee Stadium I
never heard any racial
slurs. There were
references made to
people's legitimacy
and their
relationships to
female dogs, but it
was never racial.
Now when Elston
Howard became the
first black Yankee,
that was another
thing. Unlike the
Dodgers and Giants


across town, the
Yankees didn't recruit
black players. Elston
Howard played
behind Yogi Berra,
the MVP catcher,
Moose Skowron the
Rose Bowl first
baseman, and
rightfield when they
rested Mantle and
moved Woodling or
Bauer to center. He
also split time in left
with Johnny
Blanchard and the
Yankees' other black,
Hector Lopez.
Howard took over
behind the plate and
in 1963 was the
American League
MVP. The Yankees,
who owned the MVP
award, would not
have another until
Thurman Munson in
1976. I didn't know it
at the time but he was
the first black to win
the award in the
American League.
The National League
had already crowned
11 black athletes. The
Yankees would go
without a pennant
from 1964 to 1976
when their team
would include six
black starters.
Willie Randolph, a
member of that
Yankee team, resides
across town
managing the New,
York Mets.


Local

gymnasts

go to state

Submitted
Hannah Miles and Tessa
Ferreira represented Cheek's
Gymnastics at the level 5
state competition in
Clearwater recently.
Level 5 USA Gymnastics
requires the gymnast to score
at least a combined score of
32.50 in a qualifying meet
during the season. Level 5
proved to be quite a challenge
for the girls, but both
gymnasts improved greatly
throughout the season
qualifying at least twice.
On Dec. 2, 2007, Tom and
Chris Cheek traveled with
Miles and Ferreira to Long's
Gymnasium in Clearwater to
compete with the best of the
level 5 gymnasts in the state.
Miles, 15, placed 11th all
around in her age division
with a combined score of
33.700.
Ferreira, 9, placed 11th all
around in her age division
with a combined score of
34.125.
Miles' individual scores
were: 8.600 floor; 8.925 /
vault; 7.725 bars; and; 450
balance beam. Thj'was
Miles' first ygepcompeting
with Cheek; although she
compete with Bard
Gynmastics of Lake City
several years ago.
SFerreira's individual
scores were: 8.675 floor;
8.825 vault; 8.425 bars; and
8.200 balance beam. Ferreira
has been with Cheek's
Gyinnastics for five years
now. She competed for the
first time last year at level 3.

The Italian phrase "Ancora Imparo," which means "If
still learning," is said to have been uttered by
Michelangelo when he was 87 years old. Some might
find it more than a little ironic that such a genius
- and true Renaissance man as Michelangelo would
still be learning near the end of his life he died
at the age of 88 but it was precisely his .
"0 insatiable curiosity and desire to keep learning
that made him the great artist, inventor, and
engineer that he was. Think of how much
poorer the world would be if he had refused
to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel
simply because he thought of himself
primarily as a sculptor and didn't want to
stretch his talents. And, when you look at
his great sculptures, such as the Pieta and
Sthe David, you can readily understand Why
he thought of himself primarilyas as a sculptor.
But fortunately, he was willing to continue to
learn and expand his knowledge and talents.
0 The universe is inexhaustible; there is no end
to the writing of books or the acquisition of
.m knowledge, or the making of art. And while
this thought should give us pause and even
humble us, it should also equally excite and
interest us. What a wonderful journey of
exploration and adventure we are on! Keep
learning. There is a whole universe out there just
waiting to be discovered!


. A wise man will hear and increase learning, and ~ 1
a man of understanding will attain wise counsel.

Delivered: making a joyful noise


The 5 languages of love


"Delight thyself also in the
Lord and He shall give thee
the desires of thine heart."
(Psalm 37:4).
This truly is the testimony
of Delivered, a group of
young people who are
fulfilling their calling of
ministering through -
Southern Gospel music. .
Delivered began singing
together as a group in
December 2000. God has
since richly blessed them
with numerous opportunities
to share the gospel of Jesus
Christ, their main focus.
They have had the
opportunity to sing in places
such as the Gospel Post
Annual Convention, Florida
Gospel Music Association
(FGMA), and the Biggest
All-Night Sing in the World
at Bonifay, FL. Delivered
also had the privilege of
performing for United States
Vice President Dick Cheney,
as well as many church .
services and community
functions. '
Their youthfulness,
sincerity and commitment to
their calling are an
encouragement to people of :.y'
all ages. Singing new, .
uplifting songs as well as
bringing back songs of old is
appealing to all audiences.
Many have shown Delivered
their love and support by
honoring them 'Two-Time Delivere
lAixed Group of the Year," as
well as individual awards for each of
the group's members.
Delivered offers hope and inspiration
as they share the message of God and
His love for all people. They strive to
sing songs and share testimonies that
reach out and touch the hearts and lives
of those already in their Christian walk
as well as those in need of salvation.


Although each of these individuals
presents their own distinct musical
styling, collectively they share the
common goal of being the best they
can be for the glory and honor of the
Lord. They are sincere in their love for
the Lord, sincere in their love for the
music they sing, and sincere in their
need to spread the Word to others

By David Matier
Arrogance is a trademark
of denying the existence of
God. "Look at me," "I am a
self-made man," etc. are
statements made by
unbelievers. They make little
of the Bible and reject the
existence of and make
underhanded remarks about
Hell (They are all looking
for "a heaven"), denying the
possibility of any future
Judgment. But when they
"see Him" (understand that
He does exist) they have a
new comprehension!
Notice, Job's statement:
"...mine eye seeth thee.
Wherefore I abhor myself,
and repent in dust and
ashes." (Job 42:5, 6) When
he saw God his "true self'
became apparent. Suddenly
he understood his
unworthiness! He saw
himself without his self-
righteous covering. In a
moment of time he realized


through their music.
Delivered would love to share the
gospel of Jesus Christ with you in
song. If you would like to have
Delivered in service, please feel free to
contact us for booking information.

842-2118 or 386-754-9029.

his vile condition. He
recognized God IS Great and
God IS Good! He had not
previously conceded the
truth.
This was also true of
Isaiah when he saw God.
"...I saw... the Lord...Then
said I, Woe is me! For I am
undone, because I am a man
of unclean lips and I dwell in
the midst of a people of
unclean lips: for mine eyes
have seen the King, the Lord
of hosts." (Isaiah 6:1-5).
When you have a
realization of God's person
you will fall before Him!

Heart Matters
By Angie Land

How do you show
someone that you love
him or her? Chances are
pretty good that you just
celebrated Valentine's
Day with an expression
of love to someone who
is special to you. The
National Retail
Federation estimates that
Americans spent
approximately 17 billion
dollars last Thursday on
the Valentine holiday.
Why all the fuss?
According to Dr. Gary
Chapman, love is an
emotional need, and
what we most need to
learn about love is how
to express it in a
language that the other
person understands. In
Chapman's book "The
Five Love Languages,"
he explains the five basic
languages of love:
Words of
Affirmation: This can
mean words of sincere
praise for results and
efforts as well as words
of affection that express
positive thoughts toward
someone as a person. *
"You are such a great
friend,'' "Your.eyes are
beautiful," or "I know
that didn't turn out like
you hoped, but I am
proud of how hard you
tried."
Quality Time: Giving
a portion of time and
your undivided attention
is a powerful
communicator of love to
another person because
our lives are so busy.
This doesn't mean
simply being in the same
room at the same time,
but has everything to do
with
togetherness...making
sure the other person
feels like they are the
focus of your attention.
Receiving Gifts:
Gifts are visible evidence
of emotional love.
Perhaps this explains the
billions spent on
Valentine's Day. The
Greek word from which
we get our English word
gift is "charis," which
means grace or
undeserved...for no
reason. The beauty of
gifts is that they don't
have to be fancy or
expensive to be valuable.
A gift says "I care about
you" and "I think you are
important." That is the
real treasure.
Acts of Service:
Loving service is an


internally motivated
desire to give your
energy for another. Just
doing something for
someone, especially
something they want or
need accomplished, is a
powerful way to
communicate love. Like
quality time, it requires a
portion of our life set
aside and donated for
another, but acts of
service also allows them
to be free of a task or
chore.
Physical Touch:
There is a reason why
parents are encouraged
to hold and cuddle their
newborns...touching is
an emotionally powerful
way to communicate
love. This is why we
love to give and receive
hugs and why we enjoy a
shoulder massage or a
good back scratch...touch
makes us feel loved and
accepted.
Although all of the
five love languages listed
above are enjoyable,
every person has one or
two of these that makes
them feel more loved
than the others...and by
nature we speak that
language to others. If we
enjoy gifts, we will
probably buy gifts for
those we love. If we
want words of
affirmation, we will
likely leave love notes
and be very encouraging
verbally. The problem
comes when the other
person doesn't speak our
language. We may be
speaking gifts, but they
want some quality time.
Or they may be doing
acts of service for us
while we long to bear
them say, "I love you.",
We must learn to speak
the language of the other
person if we want them
to feel loved by us. We
can usually determine
our own language by
what we most often do
for another when we
want to show love to
them. We can determine
another person's
language by asking their
preference and watching
what they do'for others.
This principle can be
applied in friendships
and parent-child/teenager
as well as romantic
relationships. This is
valuable information to
gain, because of its effect
on our hearts, and our
hearts matter!
Blessings,
Angie

RELIGION


CT~r~vrr~FF


By the Rev. James L. Snyder
I had just finished reading a
good book and was putting it
back onto the shelf when the
Gracious Mistress of the Par-
sonage came in the front door.
The door slammed shut and I
heard her declare. "There
needs to be some changing
around here."
Oh. bo\. I thought to my-
self. Here we go again. If any-
one is the master of change, it
is mN wife. She changes
things hen there is absolutely
no good reason for the change
except. "I got tired of the way
it looked." Nl. remedy is take
a nap
Personally. I hate change. It
alw ays comes at the most in-
con enient time for me.
Whenever I have to change a
tire on my car. it is out in the
middle of the road somewhere
and I am in a hurry.
Change is annoying. Every
time I change something, it is
so unlike the thing it is replac-
ing I have no idea how to
work it. I have to take time
out of my busy schedule of
loafing and learn how this new
thingamajig "works. It never
works like the old one.
Don't get me wrong, there
are some things I change. I
change the oil in my car when
it needs it. I change my under-
wear and socks whenever they
fail the sniff test. But, that's it.
Everyone must draw a line in
the sandbox and here is where
I draw mN line.
Some people talk about
change and ho'w good it would
be, and how the\ love embrac-
ing change. Then when the
change takes place, they com-
plain. I complain as soon as
anyone mentions the idea of
change. ,fij
Now we are in a political
cycle, w which may be why so
many people are dizzy. Every
four years a new crop of
politicians emerges with the
groundbreaking news that
America needs a change.
These perceptive people also
know the exact changes that
need to be made and humbly
offer their service in navigat-
ing such change for our bene-
fit. Not only are most of these
up-and-coming politicians
soon history. the, do not read
history or the% w would not say
some of the things they are
say ing
One of these years some
politician w ill arise from the
people and sa.\, "I like the way
things are going and if elected
I'll do mN best to keep things
the waN they are." That person
has m. vote.
These politicians talk about
change as though they invent-
ed the concept. Everything,
according to their "spin," is
solved b. making a change.
Then w hen one of their politi-
cal rivals changes their opin-
ion about something they go
into a tirade as though some-
one had committed unpardon-
able treason. Change is all
right as long as it advances
their agenda and puts their op-
ponents in their place...far be-
hind them in the polls.
If the truth were known,
most only w ant to change their
residence to 1600 Pennsylva-
nia A\ e and are w killing to
change their message every-
da\ to achieve this goal.
Then. these observant politi-
cians inform us "America is
going in the wrong direction."
The\ also know. which should
not surprise anyone, which
wa\ is the right direction.
How they know this is any-
one's guess, in fact, I think
the\ are guessing themselves.
However. I am not so sure
the\ know what they are talk-
ing about. America is in the
same place it w as when the


Puritans bumped into these
shores and shook hands with
Natine Ameiicans who
thought the Puritans were go-


ing in the wrong direction.
This is not bad enough.
These self-appointed agents of
change inform the public that
the American people want a
change. Who are these Ameri-
can people who want things
changed? And, why are they
so chatty to political wanna-
bes? I believe things said in
confidence should not sput a
politician into action.
Of course, I can think of a
change or two I may be inter-
ested in. For one, I would like
to see a change in the role of
the government in feeling my
pain. Let these politicians get
a handle on their own pain and
let my pain alone. I have
earned my pain now let me
enjoy it. I just know that
somewhere down this slippery
slope of change,
some politician will
discover a way to FIlMI
tax my pain. Then 8001
they will really feel slOw
my pain. .
Another change I
might be interested
in is changing a
'four-year-continu-
ous presidential
campaign into a
crime punishable by
permanent deporta-
tion. I'm thinking
of Iraq where they
need lots of change.
The biggest
change that inter-
ests me is a little I
change left over af-
ter I've paid a
king's ransom to
Uncle Sam. If some
politician can figure
out a way to change
my "little" into
non-taxable
""?n'b'i-," .tiVWld bd
interested.
I have had so
much change in my
life that an extend-
ed period of non- a
change would be a
refreshing change.
Someone said that
the more things
change the more
they remain the
same. Even the
Bible echoes this
sentiment. "Can the
Ethiopian change CU
his skin, or the
leopard his spots? Plustax, ta, f
then may ye also do
good, that are ac-
customed to do
evil." (Jeremiah
13:23 KJV).
After all these
thoughts ran their
course through my
head, I vaguely
heard the chirping
voice of my "Better
Half." "Did you
hear what I said?
There needs to be
some changing
around here."
I groaned and
braced for the ulti-
matum. "The light
on the front porch
needs changing,"
she said.
I can live with
that change.

Valentine's Day has come and
gone once again, leaving in its
wake the usual carnage. Men
who forgot; men who took the
day too lightly; men who missed
the mark. All in all it's an
interesting day. For years I had
serious problems with the "BIG
V" and mostly for the following
reasons.
First, no one really argues with
the fact that Valentine's is hyped
to ridiculous levels (if not
actually created by) the greetings-
card, flower and gift industries.
Second, everyone agrees that
any man worth his salt is
ALREADY planning romantic
dates and giving meaningful gifts
to his sweetie no matter what
day it is.
Third, the level of expectation
and entitlement floating around
kills spontaneity, and pretty much


takes the zing out of otherwise
genuine and loving actions.
OK, add all that together and
the end result is almost
guaranteed to be lose-lose, no
matter what the poor guy does....
Or is it? This is where
authenticity and genuine love
always come through, to trump
the "knee-jerk" responses that
occur in too many relationships,
and almost routinely in this


broken world. If I love my wife,
then I'm going to want to take
every opportunity to express that
fact. Right? So, instead of an
obligation, "V-Day" can turn into
a great excuse to be loving,
extravagant, over-the-top, and
generous.
So what if Valentine's Day
looks sickly and plastic and
overdone? Why not see the
occasion as yet another
opportunity to demonstrate to the
.world that love does not have to
be trite or routine. Take it up a
notch.
Get the idea?
So here's the thing. Nothing in
all of creation has the power to
negatively impact the inventive
and life-changing love of God.
Why not echo that in the way we
show love to our spouse... our
children... and our friends.
No need to wait until next year.
I do believe the challenge is on.
Grace and peace Derek
