Suwannee County and the
Spirit of the Suwannee Mu-
sic Park have reached a ten-
tative settlement on a law-
suit the park filed against the
county and code board last
November.
The park filed suit after
being cited for alleged code
violations of the building
and land development code,
alleging the county should
have either gotten permis-
sion or an inspection warrant
before entering its property.
The park also took issue
with procedures the county
and code board used to pros-
ecute alleged code viola-
tions.
The circuit court referred

Q: Is It true that the American Dental Associatini.,
has endorsed a chewing gum? %.
A:Yes. For the first time ever, the American DentalX
Association has given its Seal of Acceptance to a" -
chewing gum. Wrigly's Orbit, Extra and Eclipse'
sugar-free chewing gums are the products that*
have won the well-trusted ADA seal. These gums '
are clinically proven to help fight cavities;
strengthen teeth and reduce the build-up of,
plaque, the filmy residue that harbors bacteria.,
The seal means the ADA believes the products- .,
contribute to the maintenance of good oral health.,=:
The ADA awarded the seal after analyzlng-,.,
nearly 20 years worth of independent scientific:-
research that included both clinical and laboratory
studies on the effects of chewing these sugar-tree
products. The ADA's Council on Scientific Affairs
conducted the analysis.
The seal on the Wrgley's products, said ADA
Executive Director Dr. James B. Brenson, means
people should know that chewing the gum Is
*doing more tor their oral health than just
freshening their breath." Branson said the
products meet the ADA's criteria for safety and
effectiveness and provide oral health benefits.
Chewing these products, of course, is still no
substitute for brushing and flossing twice a day
and visiting your dentist regularly,

Making history:


Submitted

Did youknow there are those among us
who have made history? As we close out
the month of February and our celebration
of Black.History Month, it is fitting that we
pause to celebrate the lives of those who
have blazed the trail for others. Pat Hines
Mitchell, the daughter Leonard and
Carolyn Jelks Hines, is one of those rare
individuals who has dedicated her life to
changing history and making life better for
those she loves.
Pat is a native of Live Oak. She grew up
on the family farm where she still lives
today. The Jelks' family farm has a rich
local heritage. The farm has been in the
Jelks family for six generations. There are
twelve household* located on the family
farm. This large tract of land is located in
Live Oak on Hughes Highway. The
family's culture, heritage, and traditions
have become a way of life for Pat and her
extended family. According to Pat, "We
still grow our own gardens and can our
own vegetables. We don't eat store-bought
cakes and pies, and if we eat bar-b-que, it's
usually cooked in somebody's back yard.
Every Thanksgiving we still have an old-
fashioned cane grinding and syrup making.
These are the things in life that really,
matter," ,
.Pat.says,; ee en tpuigh family member..
move away, they usually return. The final
sibling to return home is her little brother,
Malcolm. He is retiring from active
military in July, and he is building a home
on the farm where hewill return to live
with his wife and daughter this summer.
Malcolm plans to teach in a secondary
classroom. He has a master's degree in
history.
. Early in Pat's adult life, she set out to
change history in Suwannee
County. After working in
bookkeeping at First Ada1
Federal, Pat decided she
wanted a career as an EMT. For
Pat was the first African
American woman, and the nverti
first African American, to Headliner
.* Seats
work in Suwannee County
as an Emergency Medical
Technician (EMT). Pat
worked under Rick Roberts, 501 G
the Director of Emergency Jot


One of Pat's favorite stories is
about the time she was
dispatched to a rescue call to a
private residence where she
encountered an 'Archie
Bunker." When he observed
that she was "not white" he
made a racial remark about it,
Pat said she smiled at him and
assured him that she was well
qualified and capable of taking
care of him, but if he would
postpone his heart attack until
the next shift, she was certain
the EMT on the next shift
would be white. Pat said that
after carefully considering his
options, he was more than
happy to accept her services.

Services. At that time, the county
coordinator was Attorney Frank C. Davis,
who now serves as the pastor of Melody
Christian Church. Pat shares about the
obstacles-she faced and how she used
humor to overcome these obstacles. One of
her favorite stories is about the time she
was dispatched to a rescue call to a private
residence where she encountered an
"Archie Bunker." When he observed that
she was "not white" he made a racial
remark about it. Pat said she smiled at him
and assured him that she was well qualified
and capable of taking care of him, but if he
would postpone his heart attack until the
next shift, she was certain the EMT on the
next shift would be white. Pat said that
after carefully considering his options, he
was more than happy to accept her
services. After this patient recovered, he
and his wife submitted a letter of
commendation on Pat's behalf and she was
recognized by the Suwannee County Board
of County Commissioners for her work that
day.
Pat worked as an EMT for eight years.
Her work as an EMT ended unexpectedly
when she and Muriel McDonald were
involvedin a: traffic incident. As reported
by,the Democrat on August 5, 1989, the,
county ambulance was wrecked. While the
driver, Muriel McDonald, was treated and
released the day of the accident, Pat
suffered major injuries, which ended her
career as an EMT. At that time, it was the
medical recommendation that Pat apply for
disability benefits. According to Pat, that
was never an option in her mind. Pat
recovered slowly, but she never lost sight
of the hope that she would find another

her community.
Since Pat's work as an EMT, she has
been active in our community in many
ways. In the early 1990s, Pat was
instrumental in starting Another Way, a -
shelter for battered women. Pat worked
with the shelter for two years. After her
work with Another Way, Pat began her -
career with the State of Florida's
Department of Juvenile Justice. Pat
-worked at The Panther Success Center, a
DJJ facility, where she became the

Hamilton County.
Pat is the mother of four. Her youngest
son, Kalan Lake, is a freshman at
Suwannee High School, where Pat
graduated. She is looking forward to
seeing Kalan graduate and head off to
college. "Sometimes, I hear folks talk
about the woes of the 'empty-nest'
syndrome," she said, "but I am looking
forward to seeing what that's like!"

Let's start now.
Mandatory water-use restrictions
for the 15-county Suwannee River
Water Management District don't
go into effect for more than a
month. We see no reason not to
start conservation efforts today.
Doing your part is simple. Turn
off your sprinklers during the heat
of the day, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Much of the water just evaporates
before it can do any good anyway.
Also, water your lawn no more
than two days a week. That's plenty
for grass, plants and shrubs to
thrive.
Sound simple? It is. But it's 4
enough to make a difference. And it
may soon be the law.
Water Management officials orig-
inally floated a plan which used
even or odd street addresses to de-
termine watering schedules. Now
they're leaning toward something
less complex the plan described
above. Simpler is better, the argu-
ment goes. We agree.
Now, the simplicity of this plan
may actually make it harder to en-
force. Anyone bent on reporting his
or her neighbor to the authorities
will have a hard time documenting
violations of the two-days rule,
since you can pick any two days a
week you want to water. But that's
fine, too. As Water Management's
Cindy Johnson notes, "Our goal is
not to have neighbors reporting on
neighbors."
It wouldn't do much good any-
way. As a practical matter, enforce-
ment of water-use rules is close to
impossible. The county commis-
sion is looking for ways to police
the new regulations, but in the end
we'll have to rely on ourselves on
our own awareness of the serious-
ness of the problem, and our own
sense of personal integrity. Let's
hope that's not a problem.
Meanwhile, the new regulations
take effect April 7. We see no rea-
son to wait. Let's get started today.
For more information, including
the more complex rules which will
govern commercial and agricultur-
al usage, go to

COMMENTARY


Big planes,
I couldn't help but -
overhear a conversa-
tion about flying on
commercial airlines.
Well, actually, I guess
I could have moved
out of earshot instead
of moving closer, but I
found it really inter- Dwain Walden
testing. Must be the
newsman in me. In
fact, they probably could have done
one of those E.F. Hutton commercials
with me leaning into the commentary.
Anyway, one fellow tells the other
that he doesn't like to fly in the smaller
aircraft because he just doesn't feel
they are as safe as the big ones.I
Well, to some extent I guess I'm that
way. But it's a rather small extent in
that I would prefer to fly on a 757 as
opposed to a crop duster. But there's a
lot in between that I'm comfortable
with the word comfortable being rele-
vant to the fact that I'm squeezing the
stitches out of a seat cushion.
I've flown in many kinds of aerial
devices from bush planes, helicopters,
hot air balloons, big jets, little jets,
medium sized jets and puddle jumpers.
I have not flown on ultra-lights, hang
gliders nor those parachutes with a
ceiling fan strapped to my back. And I
don't plan to. To me, the phrase "ex-
treme sports" means betting on the At-
lanta Falcons.


little planes
There's this one aircraft called an
Airbus. It's a really big thin' that you
can put a one-horse town in, including
the post office and coffee shop. But I
really don't feel safer in something like
that anymore than one half its size or
even smaller. Actually, I have a little
bit of a problem flying on anything
they call a "bus." As comedian Bill
Maher notes, "That's why I'm flying.
So I don't have to take the bus."
I don't think a bigger plane necessar-
ily makes it safer. When it comes to jet
airliners, they all glide about like a
brick if the engines go out. So the bot-
tom line is (all pun intended), if it falls,
the big plane is just going to make a
bigger mess.
I think some people rationalize that
they are more comfortable if there's
more people on board. I don't really
know why. They say there will be a lot
of people in hell but that won't make
the fire any less hot than if it's just you,
and me. Oops, sorry for that analogy.
But I've been holding it for a long time
and this looked like the best place to
use it. I guess what I'm trying to say is
that in this instance it's not applicable
to use the phrases "the more the merri-
er" and "strength in numbers." Unless
of course you could get everyone to
flap their arms really fast.
Now granted, if I got on a 747 and
looked around and I was the only pas-
senger, certainly I would not think,


and gravity
"Boy I've got a lot of room. I can real-
ly stretch out in here." It would only be
natural to ask, "What did the other peo-
ple know that I don't know?"
The smallest jet I've ever flown in
was a Lear. I could sit on the bench
seat in the rear and reach out and touch
both walls. We cruised at 650 miles per
hour at 25,000 feet. We went over Al-
abama like a bottle rocket over a dirt
road. It was like being inside a large
piece of PVC pipe with a Roman can-
dle strapped to my behind. My only
complaint: there was no toilet.
I've always been cautious and even
curious about trying to instill a false
sense of security in these kinds of
venues. I'm not sure that leaning for-
ward and putting your head between
your legs will add to your chances of
longevity if a big Boeing is plummet-
ing from 30,000 feet. It basically
means you will die upside down. Might
as well stand up in the seat, play air
guitar and sing "Leaving On A Jet
Plane." I
In summation, a jet, airliner big
enough to have a piano bar could just
mean'that in a worst-case scenario the
ivories could end up tickling you in
the key of B flat. (Again, all pun in-
tended.)

Wellborn's very own Valentine babies


By Betty Barnes
Valentine babies: Are you a
Wellborn Valentine baby? Here
are four of the grandest babies in
Wellborn.
Number one was Mrs. Mary S.
Andrews. She is no longer with
us but while she was, friends felt
her joy and inspiration. She
moved here from Tampa with her
family. Mrs. Andrews was a
member of the Wellborn
Community Association (WCA)
and worked very had for the
needs of the people of Wellborn.
She always made the very best
almond pound cake with lemon


sauce, for the WCA's
Thanksgiving silent auction. Her
daughter, M.L. Lewis and I
would bid against each other for
the cake. At the end of the
auction one of us would get the
cake and the both of us would eat
the whole thing with a pot of
coffee. Those were wonderful
times.
The second Valentine baby was
Mr. Blake Lowe. He was born
and raised in Wellborn. He had a
grocery store on the corner at the
caution light in Wellborn. Mr.
Lowe belonged to the volunteer
fire department and Miss Mary


had the same birthday. Every year
on this special day they would
meet in front of the post office
and toast each other's health with
Cokes.
Wellborn is blessed to have Mr.
Blake's son, Jerry, and daughter-
in-law, Jane, living in the old
home place in Wellborn. Terry
and Jane have two daughters,
Tiffany and Tara, and one son,
William. Tiffany is expecting a
baby girl in May. I hope Wellborn
will love this family as much as I
do.
The third Valentine baby is
Miss Maybelle Young. She was


born and raised north of Wellborn
on CR 137. Miss Maybelle was a
member of the WCA. She would
come by my house and play jump
rope with my grandchildren.
I also learned from her the
tradition of their marriage
ceremony. The bride and groom
would jump over a broom and
they were considered married,
very short and sweet. Miss
Maybelle'made the best sweet
potato pie in the world and I have
tasted a lot of pies.
She passed away just last year.
The fourth Valentine baby was
Mrs. Priscilla Redman Wilkinson.


She is still living on CR 10 A in
Wellborn. Miss Priscilla was born
and raised in Wellborn. A number
of years she lived in Clearwater
and St. Petersburg. She is a very
kind and wonderful lady. She
talks abut the many times she
stirred the cooking pots for Mr.
Jack Eckert.
Miss Priscilla makes a sweet
potato souffle to die for. It's out
of this world.
Every year the WCA would
deliver a Valentine box of candy
to these extra special ladies and
was very happy to be a part of
their lives.

Motion sickness may continue after travel
Motion sickness results from a disturbance of the inner ear, leading
to a sensation of imbalance. The brain receives signals from the
inner ear, eyes, muscles, and joints. When signals are received that
do not match, motion sickness may occur. This condition can be
caused by the motion of a car, airplane, or boat. If the eyes are
unable to send signals of motion to the brain because there is not a
window to look out of, while at the same time the inner ear senses
motion, motion sickness may occur. Nausea, dizziness, and vomiting
may result. Although this condition is not serious, symptoms may
cause discomfort in individuals affected. The discomfort may
continue even after the travel has ceased.
Over-the-counter drugs may be taken to prevent motion sickness.
Meclizine (Dramamine, Bonine) is available to help prevent motion
sickness. The drug may be taken one hour before traveling for the
prevention of motion sickness. In addition, Scopolamine (Transderm
Scop) is a patch available with a prescription for prevention. This
drug may cause blurred vision. Also, use caution when engaging in
activities that require mental alertness or coordination when taking
this drug. Avoid drinking alcohol while wearing a scopolamine
patch. 423492-F

complimented the students on their playing
abilities and then Suwannee Middle School
Band Director Kenneth Michal on the

Each student had a solo to play for the
judge in his instrument category. Some were
asked also to play a measure or two or to
play scales. Each performance was critiqued
and suggestions were offered for continued
advancement.
Preparation for the festival required much
extra individual effort by these dedicated
students. There were also several after-


school practices with Tammy
Michal, who provided piano
accompaniment for them.
This talented group of
budding musicians
represented Suwannee
County very well! The
District Festival organization
will present individual
medals for Superior

dents cannot receive emer-
gency weather radio
broadcasts.
Those affected reside
mostly in the southwestern
part of the county.
The previous local
transmitter 300 watts
- became obsolete in
2004.
Since that time Suwan-
nee County has been rely-
ing on a 300-watt trans-
mitter in Lake City, the
signal from which doesn't
reach the entire county.
The new transmitter will
generate 1,000 watts and
is expected to cover the
entire county, as well as
parts of Columbia County.
Wooley said weather ra-
dios are especially critical
due to the occurrences of
thunderstorms and torna-
does, which can occur


quickly in the North Flori-
da area.
The weather radios pro-
vide instant notification on
such tornadic activity, he
said.
"This is the quickest
way the National Weather
Service can get out notice
of tornadoes," he said.
County commissioners
have been working with
the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administra-
tion (NOAA) and other
agencies to address
Suwannee County's lack
of weather radio coverage.
Commissioner Randy
Hatch lobbied in Washing-
ton for the cause after a
resident brought the issue
to his attention.
"Florida sustains many
assaults from Mother na-
ture," Hatch said, adding
weather alerts should be
available to all residents.

Barker was a longtime resi-

the crash occurred. Barker

Kassidy's aunt, Karen
Baxter, was home a week
ago Monday watching both
girls when Kassidy asked if
she could go outside and ride
her bike. The rain had just
slacked off so her aunt told
her it was OK as long as she
stayed under the carport.
Kassidy knew not to go in
the road, her mom said, but
decided to be a little daring
that day. When Kassidy
turned out onto Piedmont
from the driveway, Karen
Baxter went outside to tell
her to come back. It was then
that a pickup truck struck
Kassidy and never slowed
down.
Kassidy was taken to


Shands Live Oak, then trans-
ferred to Gainesville. Her
grandmother said it was two
days before she was awake
and alert.
"The first thing out of her
mouth was, 'What are you
doing here?'" Lena said Kas-
sidy asked on seeing her dad,
Garrett McMillan, standing
over her hospital bed.
Kassidy doesn't know
when she'll be able to return
to school. A follow-up exam
was scheduled for yesterday,
and she might get to go back
to her first grade classroom
at Suwannee Primary School
on Thursday.
Kassidy said she's ready.

ready to go back," she said.

According to the terms of
the tentative agreement, the
park has dismissed the suit
and the county ,has agreed
not to take action against the
Park for alleged violations.
The Park in turn will correct

The Park has agreed to al-

At times through sports
history we have argued
the greatest athlete. Jim

Wilt Chamberlain, Bo

bring that up?
Somewhere between the
Super Bowl and opening
day lays the Twiliglht
Zone of sporting events.
Sure, basketball and
hockey exist, golf is
every week there is even
an occasional tennis


match. All sports by any
standard. But then there
are the other things.
ESPN the S stands

extended the box. Tell me
what athletic attribute
must you have to play
Texas Showdown? I am
an avid player of bridge,
a card game played
worldwide. At no time
did any of my bridge
cronies consider
themselves athletes. The
jury is out on NASCAR.
It is surely an event and
does require hand to eye
coordination. Next up,
the Bassmasters
tournament. There is
certainly skill required to
be a good fisherman and
likewise skills are needed
to perform brain surgery.
Is fishing an athletic
event? Is it us versus the

The high-tech world

of bass fishing


Dock Talk
By Damon
Wooley

By the time you
read this, the 38th
annual Bassmasters
Classic will be over
and done with. This
year's Classic was
held in South Carolina
on Lake Hartwell,
which, like most lakes
around the country, is
extremely low. About
eight feet low, to be
exact. Nevertheless,
there's still plenty of
fishable water and
despite the poor water
and weather
conditions, one of the
pros undoubtedly will
discover how to catch
three good bags of fish
and win the crown
jewel of bass fishing.
The Classic is a fun
event. I've attended
every one since 1999,
but unfortunately I had
to end my streak this
year and stay at home
to take care of family


obligations. Though I
won't be there to
socialize with the
friends I've made over
the years and fill my
goodie bags with all
the latest and greatest
lures and tackle at the
Classic Outdoor Show,
I'll be able to follow
the Classic as it
unfolds via the
Internet. I'm still
amazed at how much
technology is put
toward covering a
Bassmaster
tournament versus
where the coverage
was at a mere ten
years ago. ESPN tech
experts have each
competitor's boat
rigged with a device
called Bass Trakk and' ,
an observer in each
competitor's boat
records every fish that
is caught throughout
the day. The
information recorded
by the Bass Trakk is
transmitted back to the
tech crews on land and '

The high-tech world of bass fishing


Continued From Page 1B

they use the information to
get an idea of which angler
they need to follow. All the
while, the information is
posted and updated at'
bassmaster.com. I've seen
the behind-the-scenes
activity that goes on to help
make the Classic go off
without a hitch and for lack
of a better word it is simply
amazing! Kudos to ESPN
and their hundreds of
employees for a job well
done!
On a separate note, the
fishing around these parts is
starting to pick up. I've
gotten several reports from
various sources that I'll try
to briefly share. Though
I'm not much of a speck
fisherman, Ron Ryals and
Ryan Combee guided
several accomplished
crappie anglers at Bienville
Plantation last week and
according to Ron, "they
slayed'em." I think the tally
for three days was close to
400. Of course, they only
kept their limit, mind you.
Speaking of specks (or
crappie, depending on where
you're from) I heard that
Jamie Driggers has been
pulling some nice slabs out
of the Suwannee River on -
minnows. I'll refrain from
disclosing his honey hole
and maybe he'll thank me
by taking me to it to get in
on some of the action.
I ran into several SHS


students on the river a
couple of weeks ago who
were headed back to the
boat ramp at Nobles Ferry
after making a day of
casting for panfish with
ultra-light tackle. Ryan
Turman and Nick Bracewell
had a livewell full of nice
sized redbellies, bluegill and
one monster speck. Not to
be outmatched, Michael Yott
and Jake Hayes also boated
their fair share of assorted
panfish and a small bass.
When I ran into that motley
crew I was floating
downriver in my Ranger
Z19 attempting to convey
the finer points of bass
fishing to my three-year-old
son, and for any of you
gentlemen who've ever been
there and done that, need I
say anymore? It was all
worth it in the end, though,:
because I got to help my son
reel in his first bass, which
is something I'll treasure
forever. If you've never
taken a child fishing.and
gotten to experience the


feeling you get from their
excitement, you owe it to
yourself to put it at the top
of your "to do" list. Even if
you don't have kids of your
own, I'm sure you won't
have to look very far in your
neighborhood, church or
community to find at least
one child who would love to
go fishing.
As far as local tournament
results are concerned, I can
only convey bits and pieces
of what I've been told and
what's been posted on the
Internet, as I've been out of
town and therefore have not
been in attendance at the
most recent derbies. The
North Florida Bassmasters
held their monthly club
tournament at Hinton
landing on Feb. 9. The team
of Ben Broughton and Mike
Boyette took first place with
a limit weighing 9.72, which
included the big bass of the
tournament at 2.87. Jamie
Lanier and Billy Cason were
second with 7.34 and Chuck
Swann talked Wilbur Hand


into coming out of
retirement from tournament
competition to finish third
with 7.31. I guess the bass
fishing bug has bitten Mike
Boyette pretty bad as he's
been competing a lot more
these days. His daughter
told me he was even up until
3 a.m. the other night
"building a rod" now
that's dedication! No word
yet on where and when
"Boyette's Custom Fishing
Rods" can be purchased, but


I'll keep you posted. '
The second Xtreme Bass
Series tournament was held
out of Hinton Landing on
Feb. 16. George Pleus and
Ian Rodriguez were first
with 11.90 followed closely
in second by Tracy Duckett
and Robby Ratliff with
11.75. Rounding out the top
four were Joey and Anthony
Pate with 11.73 and Joey
Wood and Jr. Dice with
10.25. Next month's
Xtreme Series will be held


on March 15. I plan on
attending the tournament,
but I'll probably be
compelled to bring along a,
diaphr4aaffi call or two so I
can "talk turkey" to any
birds that might be listening
in the hardwoods along the
Suwannee while in' fishing.
After all, that is opening day
of spring gobbler season. I
feel sorry for my partner for
that day, I'm a little rusty on
the mouth call let's hope
my fishing is tuned up!

SIt really goes


Mean machine
Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Kenneth Long has had. to
strike this pose often in the last week. Long and his new steed
have gotten their share of attention.


LIVE OAK- -< Florida
Highway Patrol (FHP) Trooper
Kenneth Long is currently
driving a conversation piece -
and he enjoys it.
.What looks to be a miniature
version of Long's last cruiser is
part of an FHP two-year ex-
periment.
Long is one of 40 troopers in
the state to be.driving a 1983
Ford Mustang, complete with
four on the floor and a police
handling package.
Long said Florida decided to
test the vehicles after Califor-
nia reported favorable results
with its fleet of 800. Long ex-
pects to have the car for, two
years.


"'This is the first time we
have had a vehicle this size,"
Long said. "It's better for
mileage and handling."
Long expects to get about
five to six miles per gallon
more out of the Mustang than
he got from his last FHP
cruiser, a 1982 Ford LTD.;
Despite the car's standard
FHP black and gold paint, it's
gotten its share of attention.
"I stopped somebody for
speeding earlier today and they
said, 'I've got to have a picture
of that car,'" Long said.
"They're more fascinated than
anything else."

Flu and Fever Detection Facts for Dr. Mom


Cold and flu season is upon us, affecting tens of millions of
adults and children each year, according to the Centers for
Disease Control. A cold is rarely serious but flu can lead to
complications, especially in children and the elderly. Early
detection is key, especially since new anti-viral drugs must be
given within two days of the infection's onset.
Although the symptoms of cold and flu are similar, a person
suffering from the flu will be house-bound, with general malaise,
headache, body aches and a dry, unproductive cough. The leading
indicator of flu, however, is a high temperature. For this reason,
getting an accurate temperature reading has never been more
important.
There are a number of thermometers available to test for fever,
but not all are as accurate or easy to use as a temporal artery
thermometer, such as the Exergen TemporalScannerTM. Temporal
artery thermometers work by measuring heat emitted from the
skin over the temporal artery. This artery runs along the forehead
and is directly connected to the heart by the carotid artery. The
original temporal artery thermometer technology was developed
by Harvard researcher Francesco Pompei, Ph.D.
All it takes is a gentle two-second swipe of the Exergen
TemporalScanner over the forehead to determine if a person has a
fever. Two dozen independent medical studies attest to its
accuracy, including accuracy comparable to temperature taken
with a rectal thermometer long the standard for accuracy,
especially in children. Temporal artery scanners are quickly
becoming the thermometer of choice in doctors' offices and
hospitals across the country.
In addition to their speed, temporal artery thermometers are also
noninvasive as they do not need to be inserted into any body
cavity. A parent can even quickly and easily check the
temperature of a sleeping child and know the temperature they
receive is ag accurate as with any other method. Also, these
thermometers do not rely on toxic mercury for gauging
temperature. Mercury-filled glass bulb thermometers'have
already been banned in many municipalities around the country.

Temperature Guidelines for Dr. Mom
It's important to note that different types of thermometers
(arterial, oral, axillary or under-the-arm and rectal) will give
varied temperature readings. Even if the same type of
thermometer used consecutively, slightly, varied recordings will.
be noted. This is no cause for alarm. Arterial temperature
measurement, such as the one recorded by temporal artery
thermometers, leads all other methods in identifying fever and is
unaffected by patient activity. Accordingly, it will be sometimes
different but correct.
Normal Body Temperature (BT): Normal BT is not a single
temperature, but a range of temperatures influenced by age, time
of day and the measurement site.
General Rule of Thumb: On a stable, resting patient, rectal
temperature is approximately 2 o F (1 o C) higher than axillary
and 1 F (0.5 C) higher than oral temperature. On a stable,


Temporal scanner thermometers accurately record whether child or an adult is
experiencing fever one of the key signs of flu or infection.
resting patient, arterial temperature is approximately the same as
rectal temperature.
The following presents the mean normal temperature at the
common temperature measurement sites under normal resting
conditions:
The affordable Exergen TemporalScanner is available at Wal-
Mart, Walgreens, Costco, Babies R Us, Toys R Us and Sam's Clubs
around the country for under $50. Visit www.exergen.com to learn
more.

Patient Privacy
ig The walls at my vet's oilice are
very thin. When you're in the wait-
ing room, you can hear the conversa-
tion in the adjoining patient's room.
On my last visit while my cat and I
were waiting, I could hear the doctor
1 talking with a pet owner. It seemed-
the doctor had prescribed some pills
for the man's dog, but the dog would
consistently spit them out.
e "I've tried putting them in peanut :
butter, apiece of ;teal and r'.en
,niohlicering them inll cream cheese,"
the or,%ner explained. "But the dog
n just v.ouldn't eat them. I'm guessing
These pilk must ijsie really bad."
| "The. prob:mbly do." I heard the
r doctor repk. "The.'re meant tl be
supposuories."

(Family Features) Theodor
"Dr. Seuss" Geisel knew
what he was talking about.
Reading is the key to unlock-
ing untold worlds for your
child, from scholastic and
professional success to per-
sonal enrichment. The chal-
lenge is figuring out ways to
create a thirst for reading that
will serve your children
throughout their lives. At a
time when some 30 million
U.S. adults function at the
"below basic" level of litera-
cy skill, according to ProLit-
eracy Worldwide, the impor-
tance of concentrating on
reading at an early age can-
not be over emphasized.
"The family that reads to-
gether has the right idea,"
said Steve Mogck, executive
vice president and brand
leader for Country Inns &
Suites By Carlson (and fa-
ther of three). "We hear from
our guests fam-
ilies, educators
and business "The n
travelers that read, t
reading is a vital
part of their things
everyday life know. T
which is why we
developed the that 'yo
Read It & Return the mor
Lending Library y 'l
for our hotels." )
Enticing kids to Dr.
read at a young Can R
age is the first
step to creating a My Eye
lifelong reader.
Here are 10 ways
to help make this happen:
Lead by example. If your
child sees you reading, he or
she will get the idea that
reading is fun. Make it a
point to talk about books at
the dinner table maybe
even start a family book
club.
Leverage every reading op-
portunity. The next time you
plan a road trip, look for ho-
tels that provide books for
guests to enjoy and offer spe-
cials that enable you to
broaden your family book
collection. For example, if
you plan to stay two or more
consecutive nights at a
Country Inns & Suites, ask
for the "Get a Gift Card"
promotion, effective Oct. 15,
2007 -March 15, 2008, and
you will receive a $15 Bor-
ders gift card.
Encourage family reading
time. Even if it's just once a
week, consistency counts.
Get to know your library.
The community library is at
the heart of a good reading
program. When traveling, in-
troduce your child to the
Read It & Return Lending
Library at more than 400
Country Inns & Suites hotels


)


re


e


around the country. Your
child can take out a book,
and return it the next time
you stay.
Steer your child to televi-
sion programming that pro-
motes reading. One good ex-
ample is the Emmy award-
winning PBS children's se-
ries, "Reading Rainbow," a
show designed to encourage
a love of books among chil-
dren ages 4-8.
It doesn't have to be a clas-
sic. If your child enjoys na-
ture, then a subscription to
National Geo Kids or Ranger
Rick magazine will be some-
thing he lobks forward to
every month. Graphic novels
are a terrific way to appeal to
'tween and teen readers.
Read out loud. The practice
of reading aloud at bedtime
is .the earliest positive im-
print a parent can convey
that reading equates, to com-
fort, safety and
dreamy plea-
ore you sure. Even old-
Ile more er kids will en-
joy the ritual,
'oU will especially if
he more they're hooked
on a story line
u learn, or a serial book
e places and can also
Sgo. take turns read-
S. ing pages,
Seuss, 'I Treat books
ead With with respect.
,, Teach your chil-
?s Shut!" dren that books
should have a
designated place
in their room, and they
should be treated with care.
Give the child a bookmark of
their own, to prevent pages
from getting dog-eared.
Keep an open mind. As
your child gets older, he or
she might make book choic-
es you wouldn't have expect-
ed. As long as the material is
age appropriate, support the
choice and be interested in
the content.
Movie ties-ins can inspire.
If a movie like the Harry
Potter series, gets kids excit-
ed about books, that's just
great. Make a list of books
that have been made into
film, from Little Women to
Black Beauty and The Ad-
ventures of Pippi Longstock-
ing, and read the book, then
see the movie. Everybody
can weigh in on what they
like, or dislike, about each
medium.
