Motorhome


destroyed by fire

Firefighter/EMT James Sommers was outside of
SCFR Station I when he noticed heavy black smoke
above the tree line located south of the runway at
Suwannee County Airport, according to reports.
Sommers alerted his crew and proceeded to the north
end of 133rd Lane, where he and his crew found a
motorhome fully involved with fire.
The homeowners were alerted to the fire by the
arrival of Squad 1. The motorhome was parked close
to the west end of a large detached garage, and
firefighters concentrated their efforts on defending
this structure.
LOPD Chief Buddy Williams arrived and assisted
crews when he moved the owner's pickup truck from
its parked position. The front of the pickup was
beginning to melt, due to the extreme heat. The
motorhome, home and pickup belong to Chief
Williams' father, former Suwannee County Sheriff
Al Williams.
The motorhome was a total loss, the pickup suffered
heat damage and a golf cart was damaged as well.
SCFR Investigator Paul Haas combed through the
ash field and found evidence of an electrical short.
The accidental fire was determined to have resulted
from appliance failure causing an electrical short in
the motorhome's internal electrical wire bundle. The
fire was discovered at about 6 p.m., said authorities.

match against the team that made a perfect
score of 400.
As part of our research project on energy
conservation, the RoboDogs team received a
Community Pride Grant from Chevron
Corporation to change out the incandescent
EXIT lamps to energy saving LED EXIT
lamps at the fairground complex. The team
is currently working with Tom Bright,
Suwannee County Maintenance, to upgrade
the lights. This effort earned the team a
community service trophy at the tournament
for best exemplifying the spirit of giving
back to their community.
In addition to the trophy, RoboDogs' team
member Kellan Law was nominated by the
RoboDogs team and chosen by the
tournament coordinators to receive one of
two full scholarships to a weeklong summer
camp at the Kennedy Space Center.
The Championship Competition was great
fun and an exciting way to end the 2007
season. Now that they've set a precedent,


and Thursday afternoons. The.students learn
robotics, engineering, and programming
through use of Mindstorm NXT robotics.

Enjoy a night of music, dance,



and entertainment at NFCC


Submitted by NFCC Office of College
Advancement
North Florida Community Col-
lege (NFCC) is preparing foi an
exciting night of dance., mu Lic p
and fun as it welcomes
Vanaver Caravan's per-
formance of Pastures of
Plenty: A Tribute to
Woody Guthrie in Dance
and Music to the Van H
Priest Auditorium stage on
Thursday, March 6 at 7
p.m'. This lively and en-
tertaining show will be
the grand finale of the
Artist Series' 2007-
2008 season; don't
miss it. Tickets
are on sale now
in the NFCC
College Advance-
ment/Artist Series
office and can be purchased by telephone at
850-973-1653.
Pastures of Plenty is inspired by the "fa-
ther of the American folksong revival,"
Woody Guthrie (1912-1967). The show .
takes a journey through Guthrie's music and
life "from California to the New York is-
land," from the Dust bowl to the California
orchards, from the miners' shanteys to the
outlaws' trail.
Dance Magazine calls the performance
"an explosion of joy, rhythms and energy"
and The New York Times says it's a "rous-
ing hoe-down night."
Hear the instruments and musical styles:
of Woody's America: "Old Timey" and


bluegrass banjo; Carter Family style auto-
harp and harmonies; Southern, Western,
and New Eng-
land style fid-
dling; along
S-" with Lead-
.. 4 belly's 12
A. string guitar
style. Feel the
rhythms of South-
e rn Appalachian
clog dancing; West-
ern style squares
and Virginia
reels; New Eng-
land contra
dances; Harlem's
savoy style lindy
hop; urban "stomp
dancing;" along
\%ith New York's 'r
modern, interpre-
tive styles.
"A polished and vivacious group of
dancers and musicians held the audience
captivated...ingeniously conceived!" said
The Miami Herlad.
The show explores Guthrie's
quintessential style of music
which lyrically captures the
sights, sounds and feelings
of people who lived through
'significant historic 20th-
Century movements and
events like the Great Depression, the Great
Dust Storm, World War H and the social and
the political upheavals resulting from
Unionism, the Communist Party and the
Cold War. Many of his songs, such as "This


Land is Your Land"" and "Hard
Travellin." are rightlI \\omen into
the fabric of American culture.
The perfonnrmance is being fund-
ed in part b. a grant from the
Southern Arts Federation in part-
nership A ath

Endow-
ment for
the Arts and

COMMENTARY


Eeinie, meenie...


and you win!


I felt particular- d
ly good this year
watching the
Westminster Dog -
Show. A beagle
won best in show
- the whole she-
bang. It was the
first time ever for Dwain Walden
a beagle and a
very long time
since any variation of the hound
group had taken the grand prize.
I was glad to see him beat out
that poodle that looked like a half
skinned rat dabbed with big cotton
balls a Q-tip gone awry. And yes,
I know it's not the poodle's fault.
Blame the owner.
Now first let me tell you that I
think dog shows are, for the most
part, subjective. What I mean is,
how do you select one dog over an-
other? I found the same difficulty
in judging a "best Boston butt" in a
cookoff. If you don't drop it in the
dirt, it's in the running with me.
Just once, I would like to judge
that dog show. I would walk
around in my rented tuxedo, ap-
pearing that I knew what the heck I
was doing as if in my head was a
set of criteria by which I was mea-
suring all these dogs. I would rub
their ears between my fingers,
stretch them out and feel their
shoulders and hips, look at their
teeth and have them parade around
several times as if I was having a
very difficult time choosing from
the lot, all the time knowing I was
going to pick the Brittany spaniel
even if it was full of cockle burrs
and looked as if it had been up all
night drinking Jack Daniels. No
one would know but me.
Well...they would now because I've
already told you.
But since the Brittany didn't
make the cut, I was pulling for the
little beagle because he actually
looked like he was having fun. He
even barked a couple of times,
which I understand the judges
don't like for them to do. I guess
he was sort of a rebel.
You see, I think dogs want to
talk to you...just like that little bea-
gle was doing. He didn't act snooty
like some of the powder puffs. It


looked to me like the beagle was
saying, "Hey, can we go play some
catch and wallow in the mud when
this hoodoo is over?"
Like I said, I think dogs can talk.
I'm not saying cats can't talk. Ijust
think they have trouble finding
anyone worthy of conversation.
Here's the nice thing about a dog
show. None of the dogs care if they
don't win. They have no idea that
they are out there competing so
that their owners can have a brandy
at the country club and display a
big brass cup and a lot of big talk
about something that they have
very little to do with.
Now I can appreciate all those
dogs that are in the show, even the
poodles. However, I don't appreci-
ate any of them any more than a
crossbreed mutt that would ride
shotgun with me on a Saturday
morning, slobbering on the truck
window and sharing my bologna
sandwich just glad to be alive and
not living in New York City or
having to watch reality shows.
Purebred dogs don't know about
their bloodlines. And mutts don't
know that their DNA chain might
resemble the street system in At-
lanta.
For us dog lovers, there is a
prayer which I think should pretty
well sum up the relationship be-
tween dog and man: "Lord, help
me to be the person my dog thinks
I am."
Even though I'm a bit cynical
about high-falutin dog shows, I
will continue to watch them just
because I like dogs, and in my
mind I like to write captions as the
judge rubs and scratches them.
"Whoa judge! Do that again! A
little to the right!",
The very upside is that I don't
think there will ever be a Senate
hearing on dog shows amid any al-
legations that they used steroids.
Yet, I relish the thought of a blue-
tick hound testifying because I
think it would be totally honest and
even smarter than many of those
asking the questions.

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 tq keep them brief. We want
to publish as many points of view as possible,
and several of the longer entries this week were
omitted due to space limitations. Also, 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.


Last week's Rants & Raves really shows the
people speak, good issues all! Politicos, stand
warned, folks, vote them out of office! We need
to support SOS and all cultural events in this
area, not harass the #1 tourist draw in our area.
The vast increase in pivot irrigation systems
surely must have some effect on our water
table, that is common sense. While agriculture
is very important, we are exporting dairy and
paying more for a gallon of milk than gas! The
small farmer has it tough, but Archer Daniels
Midland, Cargill, Lykes, etc. are multi-billion
dollar corporations and raking in the bucks.
Maybe our government should review subsi-
dies and price fixing policies to encourage
competition and growth? Also stop water bot-
tlers, who produce an environmentally unsound,
and basically unneeded commodity by lower-
ing our water table and upsetting the balance of
our springs. Teen pregnancy, agriculture tax
base, lack of skateboard park, etc., and poor
use of revenue are all tied together. We need
rec facilities for youth, not just a skateboard
park, but a theater, a video arcade and other
modem, up-to-date venues for our youth. Not
knockingschool, church or 4-H in any way, but
we must provide more. Jobs for young people
in restaurants and the hospitality industry
would contribute a lot, to our youth and our
area revenues. Maybe we should open up from
our agriculture, timber economy, bring in some
tax paying businesses; etc. Churches are fine,
we need them, and we sure have them, but they
own vast tracts of land here, tax free, and many
of these facilities cater to non-local events. Full
circle, back to politics, change it!


It has been stated by survey analysis the
greatest waste of water in a household is water
running continually in a shower (up to 30 gal-
lons think about it the next time you shower).


Rave


How much water do all of us waste daily in our
household? The farmers in our county are prob-
ably more concerned than anyone else regard-
ing the drought. We try to conserve water more
than most people because we are aware of how
valuable it is. Let us all work together to con-
serve our water and each of us realize what is
"waster water" and what is "necessary" to pro-
vide food.


Will someone at City Hall please wake up
and sell the SUV. While gas prices are intreas-
ing at a record rate, the city is buying gas-guz-
zlers. Come on people. Come to your senses
before it is too late. The SUV must go!


I just like to agree with the people about the
skateboarding that they want to put in here for
these kids. We're complaining about teen preg-
nancy or we're complaining about kids on
drugs at school. Give the kids something to do,
keep them occupied, keep them out of trouble,
Where is the skating rink that was to be built in
Suwannee County? Where is something for
these kids to do? Give them something to do
and they'll stay out of trouble. We're building
all these complexes and everything. Let's build
something for the kids. Step up and put the kids
first.


How many people know that there are base-
ball travel teams in Live Oak? Well you might
have heard of it but do they advertise it so all
children have the opportunity to try out? No.
How fair is that to the boys that would like the
same opportunity? You would think someone
would announce tryouts for it. For there might
be talent out there in our community that no-
body even knows about because they don't gei
a chance.

E *

The trouble with the mayor and city council
and city administrator spending as much mon-
ey as they do. I think they should be investigat-
ed by the attorney general's office because it's
not fair to the city of Live Oak people and the
people of Live Oak forthem to spend this mich
money. It's the mayor's fault and he should be
held accountable and it's possible criminal
charges need to be brought [Editor's note: un-
intelligible comment here] and the city admin-
istrator should be fired.


Callers to 208-8314 may express their
thoughts, good or bad, 24/7 about community
issues and politics, but not about private indi-
viduals or businesses. If you prefer, you may e-
mail. your comments to
nf.editorial@gaflnews.com. You can let every-
one know how you feel if you will be respect-
ful in how you express yourself. You don't
have to give your name.

Turn your yard debris into black gold


Continued From Page 3A

those leaves as money you
save when you use them
for mulch and compost.
Using your yard debris
instead of buying mulch
and commercial fertilizers
can save you money and
protect our natural
resources.
What is the difference
between composting and
mulching? Composting is
the natural process of
decomposition and the
recycling of organic
material into a rich soil
amendment. Mulching is
placing any material (wood
chips, paper, and rocks)
over the soil to reduce soil
moisture evaporation,
insulate plant roots from
extreme temperature
changes, reduce erosion
and suppress weeds.
Oh no, you, think, I don't
want "a stinking compost
pile." The good news is
that when a compost pile
has oxygen and is kept
only slightly moist, with
the right mix of green and
brown material it has a
pleasant earthy aroma.
Compost piles with foul
odors wafting from them
don't have enough, oxygen
or there is too much wet
green material or animal
products have been
dumped into the pile.
Avoid putting meat scraps,
eggs or any protein
substance in your home
compost piles. (This tip
does not apply to
agriculture composting.)
Think of compost as
black gold to add to our
nutrient poor sandy soils.
Compost also benefits the
soil by improving soil
structure, texture and
aeration. It also increases
soil's water-holding
capacity. Compost loosens
clay soils, allowing for
better aeration and helps


sandy soils retain water
and nutrients which
stimulates healthy root
development in plants.
A tip for trivia
enthusiasts: The Roman
statesman Cato introduced
composting as a way to
build soil fertility
throughout the Roman
Empire over 2,000 years
ago (i.e.: backyard
composting). Composting
can replace the use of
petroleum-based fertilizers.
Think about it Have you
ever seen someone running
behind a fertilizer spreader
in Mallory Swamp or a
state park? These are
natural ecosystems where
composted leaves, twigs
and organic material
slowly decay and provide a
steady trickle of nutrients.
A client told me, "There is
nothing better than good,
earthy smelling compost
for your garden beds. I'
have always used compost
for nutrients and have had
some of the prettiest
tomatoes you have.ever
seen."

Follow these simple
instructions to mulch your
landscape and create your
own black gold compost.

1) Allow leaves to

around the base of trees to
keep the area aesthetically

4) Combine a mix of

5) Turn the compost pile

PARE RA U SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 2008


Hit-and-run:

Woman critically

injured Monday
Melody Lee, Special to the Democrat
Shelly Bennett, 46, of Jasper is in critical
condition after being struck from behind
by a vehicle about 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb.
25, according to a report from the Jasper
Police Department.
Bennett was walking east along the side
of NW 3rd St, when she was hit by a light
colored Nissan, possibly a truck, that was
also traveling east, authorities say. The ve-
hicle fled the scene.
Anyone with information about the ac-
cident can call the Jasper Police Depart-
ment at 792-1130 or Crime Stoppers at
792-TIPS (8477). You do not have to give
your name when you call Crime Stoppers
and you may receive up to $1,000 reward
if your information leads to an arrest.


Mobile home burns

No one home, no one hurt
Melody Lee, Special to the Democrat
A mobile home burned about noon on
Saturday, Feb. 23, according to a report
from the fire department. The Bellville
Volunteer Fire/Rescue Department re-
sponded to the fire at 2672 NW 6th Dr. in
Jennings. The Jennings and Crossroads
Volunteer Fire/Rescue Departments also
provided assistance.
Sharon Strickland lived in the home,
which was owned by Artie Johnson of
Jennings. Johnson reported the fire, ac-
cording to the report. No one was inside
the home at the time of the fire.
There was approximately $6,000 dam-
age to the home and about $3,000 dam-
age to the contents, the report states.


Mayo Correctional Institution to expand


Ira Mikell
Special to the Democrat
Mayo Correctional Institu-
tion Warden Jim Witt is ex-
cited about the future of the
prison. Witt was the guest
speaker during Mayo Ro-
tary's regular scheduled
meeting on Wednesday, Feb.
201.
In 1984, the prison first
opened, housing 800 in-
mates. Today, that number
has grown to 1,700.
MCI offers its inmates
health and dental care as
well as religious, betterment,
education, transition, and
wellness/fitness programs.
Before they finish their
sentencing and are released
back into society, the inmates
are required to take a course
on life management skills.
According to Witt, this
course teaches the inmates
certain skills that will help
them with daily tasks such
as getting a job and manag-
ing their checkbook. ,
MCI is a "level five" facili-
ty and houses every type of
inmate except those who are
on death row, according to
Witt. Security at the prison is
state-of-the-art. "We take
great strains to try and make
certain the security systems
are always working proper-
ly," Witt said. "They are
checked twice every shift.
Once a month we go
through a crawl test that re-
quires someone to crawl
every zone. We use the

smallest Correctional Offi-
cer possible. His job is to try
to beat the system. Our job
is to make sure it doesn't
happen."
Most of the employees at
the. prison have been there
since 1983. Some of them are
getting dose to retirement,
Witt noted. Communication
with staff members as well
as with the inmates is an es-
sential skill that a person


must have in order to work
at the prison. Witt also stat-
ed that if a person does not
learn how to communicate
well, it will be very difficult...
to survive and work in that
type of environment
Construction of the new
prison at MCI will not begin
until May It will house 1,300
inmates. According to Witt,
the estimated cost to build
the new facility will be $85


million.
In addition, a new work
camp will be constructed at
MCI. It will house 540 in-
mates and will cost roughly
$13 million to build. Accord-
ing to Witt, the prison
should be finished by Dec.
2009.
Both the new prison and
the work camp will add 350
employees to MCI's current
333 workforce.

Morris G. Steen, Jr. who
will remain in office until

Blalock announces bid for

superintendent's post


Continued From Page 1A

perintendent, 37 years as an
educator and proven track
record of changing lives
through quality education are
known throughout the state.
The state Superintendent As-
sociation credits Blalock as
being the only person to be
elected to two different dis-
tricts (Suwannee and Hamil-
ton) in the state of Florida.
Under Blalock's supervi-
sion in Suwannee County,
student' achievement flour-
ished from the elementary to
the high school level. School
facilities were newly built
(Suwannee Middle, Branford
High gym, Branford cafete-
ria, Langford Stadium) or
renovated (Suwannee High,
new Suwannee-Hamilton
Technical Center business
building, Douglass Center,
student restrooms at Suwan-
nee Intermediate).
During Blalock's tenure,
Suwannee County teachers'
salaries' were the best in the
area. During a three-year
economic recession, there
were no employee lay-offs;
academic programs were


maintained; and the district
survived state funding cut-
backs without the loss of
contingency funds. '
Blalock implemented the
district policy of maintaining
retiree's health insurance
premiums, making Suwan-
nee County the only district
in the state of Florida to do
so.
Community involvement
is one of the keys to success-
ful schools, Blalock says.
Blalock started a partnership
with community businesses
and parents by establishing
the following: Suwannee
Foundation for Excellence,
school improvement teams at
each school, community
leaders, serving as mentors
and school system participa-
tion in community charity
drives.
Blalock is a 22-year mem-
ber of the Live Oak Kiwanis
Club and is currently onits
board of directors.
Blalock's qualifications,
professional and civic affilia-
tions are numerous. His col-
lege matriculation includes
Paul Quinn College (Waco,
Texas), Florida Agriculture


& Mechanical University
and the University of Flori-
da. Blalock is a state certified
superintendent and serves on
the SACS/CASI Florida state 3
committee. This 35-state and
65-nation committee is re-
sponsible for accrediting
schools and sharing best
practices for improving the
effectiveness of schools and
school districts.
Blalock is the husband of
Pauline. They have three
children and six grandchil-
dren. Three of his grandchil- -
dren are currently enrolled at
Suwannee Middle and Inter- -
mediate schools.
"Because of my experi- -
ence as a teacher, guidance
counselor, coach, bus driver,
negotiation team member,
principal and superintendent, .
I understand the "total sys-'
tern," said Blalock. "I have
the best qualifications to lead
as your superintendent and +
would be highly honored to
do so. I can make a differ-
ence for' the students and
staff of Suwannee County b
Schools and I solicit your
support to help make this a
reality."


Man found dead in pond


Continued From Page 1A


Shelman's mail had been piling up for some
time. A sheriff's deputy sent to investigate
found Shelman's bpogy.floating in the pond.
-She"lI' said Cameron and.
the pond had d=& .up around it creating
a lip, so it would have been impossibleto see
the body unless you were close by, Cameron
said. The area in which Shelman lived is fair-
ly isolated, according to Cameron.


"It is important if you live alone to get to
know your neighbors that live around you to
see if they can check on you," Cameron said.
He also said that if someone lives alone in
the county they can call the sheriff's office,
which.will check on them
' Foul play is not suspected, though no de-
termination can be made until reports come
in from the medical examiner's office.
Cameron said Shelman may have fallen in 3
the pond from a small dock.

Up to 3 million people were
affected. ,
Bob Garner of Comcast
Cable said some subscribers
in the area reported outages
due to the storm.
"There were a few out-
ages that were reported in
the area, but we had a ma-
jority of the subscribers
back in operation within an
hour," he said,
The exact number of
those affected was not
available.
Suwannee Middle School
was without power Wednes-
day morning, but not due to,
the storm. A raccoon got to


close to power lines and
blew a transformer on the
line feeding the school.
Power was restored by
around 9 a.m. by SVEC
crews.
Emergency Management
Assistant Director Kimberly
Thomas said a tree fell on a
power line on 161st Road
about a half of a mile north
of CR 250 and caused a
small brush fire.
A tree also fell across CR
249 at the double-S curve
just north of Rosemary
Baptist Church, and another
tree fell across Mitchell
Road.
Branford Elementary was
without power starting
around 2:26 p.m. The power
was restored about 20 min-
utes later by emergency
generators.
According to the National
Weather Service in Jack-
sonville, the highest wind
speed recorded was 30
miles per hour in Lake City,

tion to Live Oak.


Schools, teachers union remain at impasse

current employees. The
school board shares the cost
of health coverage for in-
structional and non-instruc-


tional employees who retire
with 30 or more years of ser-
vice, with at least 20 years of
service in Suwannee County
Schools, and are 52 years of
age or older at retirement.


The board's chief negotia-
tor wants to change that,
however. Under the board's
proposal, retirees would pay
the full premium. Union ne-
gotiators want the school
board to' continue making a
contribution to retirees'
health insurance. District of-
ficials maintain the district
needs to conserve its spend-
ing in light of possible im-
pending budget cuts.
During the mediation ses-
sion the board sent the union
a proposal package that in-
cluded phasing out, as of


July 1, 2009, the insurance
benefit for retirees and for
those who have entered the
district's drop program.
Union negotiators re-
sponded with the' following
counterproposal: Beginning
this July the board will con-
tinue to pay the same amount
for retiree insurance minus
the state's monthly insurance
allowance, $150.
The teams also discussed
employment practices, com-
pensation schedules and
teaching and working condi-
tions.


The teams remain at im-
passe, and unless one side
changes its position, a spe-
cial magistrate will conduct
a hearing and make a recom-
mendation. If either or both
parties reject the recommen-
dation the issue will go be-
fore the school board for fi-
nal determination.
The union and board have
met on numerous occasions
since May, debating salary
schedules and contractual
changes. The teams came to
an- agreement in December
on a salary package. Once


negotiations conclude, raises
will be retroactive to July 1,
2007.
The board's chief negotia-
tor proposed making numer-
ous changes to contracts,
calling the language "redun-
dant" and "archaic." The
union says that such changes
would "radically alter" em-
ployees contracts, affecting
working conditions as well
as retiree benefits.
The district has been oper-
ating under terms of the pre-
vious contracts, which ex-
pired in June.

arrested Wednesday as an
accessory after the fact (at-
tempted felony murder) and
resisting arrest without vio-
lence.
The shooting occurred at
3600 NW 104th Ave., Lot
#18 in McGauley's Trailer
Park in Jasper, according to
reports.
Witnesses said Walls and


Daniels were among two
groups of people who were
arguing, say authorities.
Daniels allegedly fired a
gun into the other group, hit-
ting one person, and Walls
returned fire, the report
states. Walls then ran to a
mobile home and fired into
the open door, hitting, two
more people, say authori-
ties. About 16 people, in-
cluding several children,


were in the mobile home,
according to reports.
Reid said the investiga-
tion is ongoing.
Hawkins is a 1994 gradu-
ate of SHS where he was ,a
star athlete with the football
team from 1993-94 under
then head coach Mike
Pittman. Pittman said he
was a great athlete and good
person.
"Stephon was a good


overall athlete," said
Pittman of Hawkins. "He
had good speed, he could
catch the ball out in the
field."
Anyone with information
about the incident is asked
.to call the Hamilton County
Sheriff's Office at 386-792- '
2004.
Democrat reporter Jeff
Waters contributed to this
story.

"I was sitting there and
the next thing I heard was a
cracking sound and then a
loud crash," he said, noting
that the .windows in the,


room have sunk a few inch-
es under the weight of the
75-80 foot talltree.
No one was hurt in the in-
cident. The Nickersons had
moved into the home just a
week earlier.

Talkin' turkey


Outta' the woods
By Tony Young
Florida Fish and
Wildlife
Conservation
Commission
Better start brushing up
on your turkey calling,
because spring gobbler
season's here. Whether
you prefer to use a mouth
call, box call, slate or any
combination, March
means it's time to start
talking' turkey.
One of the most coveted
and sought-after game
species in Florida is the
Osceola turkey, also
known as the Florida


turkey. This unique bird
is one of five subspecies
of wild turkey in North
America.
The Osceola lives only
on the Florida peninsula
and nowhere else in the
world, making it
extremely popular with
out-of-state hunters.
They're similar to the
Eastern subspecies (found
in the Panhandle) but tend
to be a bit smaller and
typically are darker with
less white barring on the
flight feathers of their
wings.
The white bars on the
Osceola are narrower,
with an irregular, broken
pattern, and don't extend
to the feather shaft. It's


the black bars of the
Osceola that actually
dominate the feather.
Similarly, secondary wing'
feathers also are darker.
When the wings fold
across the back, the
whitish triangular patch

formed is less prominent on
the Osceola. And, Osceola
feathers show more
iridescent green and red
colors, with less bronze than
the Eastern.
The National Wild Turkey
Federation and the Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) recognize, in their
respective turkey registry
programs, any wild turkey
harvested within or south of
the counties of Dixie,
Gilchrist, Alachua, Union,
Bradford, Clay and Duval to
be the Osceola subspecies.
Eastern turkeys and
crossbreeds are found north
and west of those counties
in the Panhandle.
The highly anticipated
spring turkey season runs
March 1-April 6 in the
South Hunting Zone and
March 15-April 20 in the
Northwest and Central
zones. The exception is
Holmes County, where the
season runs three days,
March 15-17.
Hunters may take bearded
turkeys and gobblers only,
and the daily bag limit's
one. The season and
possession limit on turkeys
is two, except in Holmes
County, where the season
limit's one.
Shotguns are the best
choice when hunting
turkeys, but if you're so
inclined, you may use a
rifle, muzzleloader or
handgun, or you can try
your luck with a bow or
crossbow.
Shooting hours on private
lands are one-half hour
before sunrise to sunset, but
on wildlife management
areas (WMAs), you must
quit hunting at 1 p.m.
Of course, you can use


turkey decoys to help entice
that stubborn old bird, but
you're not permitted to hunt
turkeys with dogs, use
recorded turkey calls or
sounds, shoot them while
they're on the roost or over
bait. You also can't hunt
them when you're within
100 yards of a game-
feeding station.
To participate in spring
turkey hunting, you'll need
a Florida hunting license
and a turkey permit. If you
plan to pursue a gobbler on
one of Florida's many
WMAs, you also must
purchase a management
area permit.
All of these licenses and
permits are available at
county tax collectors'
offices, most retail outlets
that sell hunting and fishing
supplies, by calling toll-free

finish.
With her combined score
of 35.35 Jernigan placed
first as all-around
champion. With this score,
she now moves up to the
next level of competition,
Level Four Elite Division.
She will compete next in
the Elite Division in the 3rd
Amateur Athletic Union, or
AAU, Qualifier in New Port
Ritchey, March 8-9, as a
member of the North
Florida Gymnastics Team of
Orange Park.
In her first AAU qualifier,
the Winter Classic in Perry,
Jernigan competed as a

1-888-HUNT-FLORIDA
(486-8356) or online at
www.wildlifelicense.com.
If you didn't put in for a
special-opportunity or quota
permit, don't worry, several
WMAs don't require them.
Visit MyFWC.com/hunting
and under "This Month's
Hunting Opportunities,"
click on "2008 Spring
Turkey Guide: What you
need to know" to see a list
of WMAs where you only
need a hunting license,
management area permit
and turkey permit to hunt
spring turkeys.
If you take a turkey with
an 11-inch beard and 1 1/4-
inch spurs, get your name
listed in the FWC's Wild
Turkey Registry by
applying for an
"Outstanding Gobbler
Certificate." There also is a
"First Gobbler Certificate"
awarded to hunters under
age 16 who harvest their
first gobbler, regardless of


novice. In these events, she
placed first on beam,
scoring 9.60, and recorded a
total score of 34.9, earning
third place all-around,

Roger. Roger got B 12 but

Canseco's party but his wife

Despite this I wish
Congress would leave him
alone and he would just go

All this being said, bold
predictions will be made.
Right now it's the Mets and

the next MVPs will be and
I'm not picking A-Rod.

Thi


SScience and philosophy are both truly important
human endeavors. Without them, we would probably in
still be stuck in the. Dark Ages. And it is wo r th
pointing out, that science and philosophy, aind
indeed, all areas of learning, give one a renvd ..
appreciation for the wondrous creation of 1illch
we are all a part. But, it is also important to
realize that knowledge has its limits. We miitc O
say that knowledge is limited to the empirical
realm, the realm of experience, whereas
faith takes us beyond the realm of
experience. As the great German
philosopher Kant stated in his Critique of .
Pure Reason, we must "limit knowledge .:
in order to make room for faith." Kant was
warning the metaphysicians of his day, who
incorrectly thought that they could know
about God and the super-sensible realms of
the universe, that human knowledge simply
could not extend that far. Andat the same
Time, he was battling the unbelief of atheists
who thought that faith was nullified by modern
science. Quite to the contrary, Kant showed
that human knowledge is limited to the
'-empirical realm, i.e., the realm of experience, but
that this has the very important benefit of imakiiig
room for faith. So, we must make room for faith ini
our lives and open up our hearts to the rcalit.v, f
God.

He has made everything beautiful in its time; also he has
put eternity into man's mind, yet so that he cannot find
'. out what God has done from the beginning to. the end.

RELIGION


Heart Matters
By Angie land

Think about the following
question and answer it as
honestly as you can: What
do you consider the most
important value in a
relationship?
' It is critical that you know
the answer to this question,
because when you value
something in a relationship,
you will make sure that it is
present and protected and
you will not tolerate
anything that destroys that
value. Your values work as
boundaries to bring good
things into your
relationships and keep bad
things out...so what you


value is what you will have.
In the same way, if we do
not see something as
valuable, we will notprotect
it, nor will we fight to gain
or keep it.
Love is often the most
popular answer to our
question. We understand that
giving and receiving love is
an important value in
relationships because there is
a deep need inside all of us
to love and be loved...the
problem is that rarely does
the kind of love we are
looking for actually exist in
our relationships.
Unfortunately, we often
settle for a counterfeit
version because we aren't
sure what the real thing
looks like. In I Corinthians
13:4-8, the Bible gives us
God's definition of love:
"Love is patient, love is
kind. It does not envy, it
does not boast,
, it is not proud. It is not
rude, it is not self-seeking, it
is not easily
angered, and it keeps no
record of wrongs. Love does
not delight
in'evil but rejoices with
the truth. It always protects,
always trusts,
always hopes, and always


perseveres. Love never
fails."
Let's look at this
description of love and
establish the boundaries it
sets (the good things it
brings into a relationship and
the bad things it keeps out).
Real love is patient and
kind, willing to give others a
,second chance and forgive
mistakes. It is not quick to
anger; nor is it controlling
and judgmental.
It does not make room
for jealousy of the good
things that come the way of
others, nor is it prideful and
"one-up" others over our
own blessings.
Love looks out for the
best interest of others and
doesn't hold grudges.
Love rejoices in the
truth, even when it is
difficult to hear because
even the worst conflicts can
be resolved when everything
is out in the open. It always
protects, not by lying or
covering an offense, but for
the best interest of those
involved. Love also helps us
do the right thing to protect
someone we love, even
when it may risk the
relationship.
Love always hopes the


best is yet to come, and that
there is always room to grow
and change. It lets us
understand that people will
fail us because they are not
perfect, but neither are we,
and that love can help us
move past those failures.
This kind of love put into
practice in any relationship
will do a great job keeping
good things in and.bad
things out...protect it, for it is
valuable and worth fighting
for, because our hearts
matter.
Blessings,
Angie

Out by the way


By David Matier
Genesis chapter 45
records the incident of
Joseph revealing himself
to his brothers and
sending them to get their
father. His brothers had
sold him into slavery'
when he was very young.
Joseph, now second in
command in Egypt, said,
"Ye thought evil against
me; but God meant it
unto good." (Genesis
50:20)
In this narrative a
Joseph tells his brothers,
"See that ye fall not out
by the way" (Genesis
45:24b). (This has

By Derek Maul
www.Derekmaul.net


This has been a fast ,
week. Lots of stuff
happening. Many
deadlines. Way too
busy to catch my
breath. Too busy even
to spend time nurturing
the important stuff.
Of course I know that
such rushing around is '
counterproductive. But
I do it anyway because
busyness creates the illusion of
productivity. Then there's the sad
reality that I too easily allow myself to
be manipulated by the ambient
culture.
I made the following observation in
my book but it bears repeating. Less
than ten percent of professing
Christians engage in an active,
deliberate, daily devotional discipline.
The statistic has einerged from
personal observations, conversations
with countless people and in-depth
interviews with over 200 pastors from
more than 20 denominations. The
statistic was confirmed in a
Christianity Today article (2006).
Ten percent is a really low number.
But here's another piece of data -
completely reliable that turns out to
be remarkable: 100% of those who do
maintain a regular devotional
discipline report that the daily routine


pays off in ways that
are nothing short of
huge.
S .. "By huge I mean
eternal, unremitting,
awesome, satisfying,
and unarguably life-
changing. By huge I
also mean discernible
improvement in daily
lives across the board.
Relationships,
parenting, work
attitude, productivity,
work satisfaction,
effective Christian witness, l1ye life;
need I go on?
"This is true even when the people I
talk with believe they are only just
beginning to scratch the surface
regarding their daily walk with God.
The investment of just a few short but
deliberate minutes, every day, makes a
difference in lives that cannot be
accounted for by any other variable.
"If any advertised manufactured
product could claim anywhere near.
the level and consistency of the
verifiable results found in
consequence of a daily devotional life
then that product would sell off the
shelves'.
"We know the truth; we are aware
of the benefits. So what .is holding us
back?"
(Excerpted from Get Real, pp 81-
82.)
What is holding us back?

Winner of

historic 50th

running of

Daytona 500

After one of the most
competitive Daytona 500s in event
history, Ryan Newman had his
winning 50th running of the
Daytona 500 car the No. 12 Alltel
Dodge inducted into Daytona 500
Experience recently.
Newman, owner Roger Penske
and crew chief Roy McCauley
inducted their winning race
machine into Daytona 500
Experience as part of the Banquet
Brown 'N Serve Champions
Breakfast a day after 42 lead
changes and 16 different leaders
made for one of the most exciting
Daytona 500s in event history.
The trio participated in a fan
forum inside the attraction and


received their winning Daytona
500 leather jackets from Daytona
International Speedway President
Robin Braig. In addition, Gatorade
presented the 2008 Daytona 500
champ with a framed photo from
Gatorade Victory Lane.
Newman also autographed artist
David Arrigo's DIRECTV
Speedweeks mural hood painting
and the entire No. 12 team
including Newman had already
signed winning No. 12 car the
night before.
"It's sinking in," Newman said.
"It takes time. It's huge. It's the
50th running of the Daytona 500
and it's just an honor to be up here
with (owner) Roger Penske and
(crew chief) Roy McCauley and all
these guys over here in the blue
shirts. I kinda. want them to go
back to work pretty soon.
"It's just an honor to be here. It
was a great race last night. I have
to thank Kurt Busch for the great
push, great teammate, great team
effort, great organization run by


Roger Penske that enabled us to
get the Alltel Dodge into Victory,
Lane."
The 50th running of the Daytona
500 will go down as one of the
most memorable in history with 42
lead changes among 16 drivers.
The 16 different leaders were the
second-highest total in the history
of "The Great American Race
(record is 2006, 18 leaders).
The 42 lead changes at the
start/finish line were the most
since 2001 (49) and the 81 green
flag passes for the lead on the
legendary 2.5-mile tri-oval is the
second-most at DIS since 2005
when the gathering of Loop Data
began.
During his question and answer
session with the media on Monday,
Newman, who pocketed a winner's
check of $1,506,045, reflected on
his early memories of visiting
Daytona International Speedway
with his family.
Newman, a graduate of Purdue
with a degree in engineering,


usually sat in the Segrave
Grandstands and admitted that he
used counterfeit credentials.
"There were times where we
might have bought some
construction paper a time or two,"
Newman said. "There were a
couple of times where I had some
friends in the garage that might
have given me a crew shirt. But, I
don't recall those times. You do
what you've
got to do to
get in man.
You have to L
create your
own
opportunities
sometimes.
"We always had tickets. But that
isn't always where you want to be
- you want to be in the garage area
- and when you're a driver, you
want to be amongst other drivers."
Newman left Daytona
International Speedway on
Monday afternoon to kick off a
week-long whirlwind media tour

ON IF IT HAS SUNK IN
THAT HE'S A
DAYTONA 500
CHAMPION
"It's sinking in. It takes
time. It's huge. It's the
50th running of the
Daytona 500 and it's just
an honor to be up here with
(owner) Roger Penske and
(crew chief) Roy
McCauley and all these
guys over here in the blue
shirts I kinda want them
to go back to work pretty
soon. In general, it's just
an honor to be here. It was
a great race last night. I
have to thank Kurt Busch
for the great push, great
teammate, great team
effort, great organization
run by Roger Penske that
enabled us to get the Alltel
Dodge into Victory Lane."

ON HIS DAD SPOTTING
FOR HIM DURING
THE RACE
"I said in Victory Lane
that I heard tears dropping
over the radio, and that's
no exaggeration because
he's emotional. He's had a
couple of health issues at
times and he's put himself
on the edge. To have him
here and to be a part of this
is a dream come true for
me. It was kind of a
reassurance for me to know
- and he's been watching
me for 26 years driving a
car he knows when I have
one in the bag and when I
don't and he knows when
it's close. I just felt, as I
got into Turn 3, that it was
going to be a good one
back to the start/finish line
and he was right."

ON ATTENDING THE
RACE AS A FAN AND
FORGING
CREDENTIALS TO GET
INTO THE GARAGE
"There were times where
we might have bought
some construction paper a
time or two. There were a
couple of times where I
had some friends in the
garage that might have
given me a crew shirt. But,
I don't recall those times.
You do what you've got to
do to get in man. You have
to create your own
opportunities sometimes.

"We always had tickets.
But that isn't always where
you want to be you want
to be in the garage area -
and when you're a driver,
you want to be amongst
other drivers. I remember
times when we slipped
through the gate with no
credentials whatsoever
because that was the level
of security that they had. I
sat on the pit wall and got


A.J. Foyt's autograph when
he was still driving here in
the'500 and the Gatorade
Duels. We first came down
here when my grandfather
passed away. It gave us the
opportunity to come down.
We came down with my
aunt and uncle, spent time
in their motel room
sleeping on the floor, and
we had bad habits. We
stayed up all night racing,
came back and had Krispy
Kremes for dinner and had
Krispy Kremes for
breakfast and that's part of
the reason I look the way I
do. We had good times
though. He'd come and
pick me up from his work
and pulled me out of
school. The stipulation was
that I had to have my
schoolwork done. We had a
log book of records to see
which state we could clear
the fastest. It was just all
good times. We'd drive
down here at night and
we'd pull into the Cracker
Barrel parking lot and
sleep. That was one of the
first things we talked about
this weekend. He actually
said that this weekend on
the radio, 'Do you
remember pulling into the
Cracker Barrel and
sleeping?' and I said,
'Yeah, I remember getting
up in the middle of the
night and having to take a
leak and it was raining too
hard so I just stayed in the
car. So, I remember a lot of
things.

"So much effort has gone
into me sitting here. But,
we always had tickets
because they were in the
family and the idea was to
get in the garage.
Sometimes we'd use
construction paper. I
remember stopping at a
Winn Dixie over here and
we'd look for construction
paper. We did what we had
to do. If you were good
enough you could sneak in,
figure out what the
credentials actually looked
like, and then you'd go
back and make your own."

ON TALKING WITH
ANY OF THE DRIVERS
AFTER WINNING THE
DAYTONA 500
"King Richard Petty
came to our bus after
everything was over with.
He just came over and
smiled and hugged, and
Lynda (Richard's wife) as
well, and talked to Krissie
(Ryan's wife). It was just
an honor to have someone
like the King come over
and take time out of his
schedule when he has other
things to do and


Ryan Newman, driver of the No. 12 Alltel

Dodge and 2008 Daytona 500 champion


congratulate you. Even
people like Ken Schrader
that came up to me in
Victory Lane and just gave
me a hug and walked off.
He didn't say a word. So
many other drivers. Kurt, I
had a note on the door
from Carl Edwards and his
crew, 'Congratulations,
you're the man,' Matt
Kenseth is a pretty close


friend and I've been
texting him back and forth
last night and this morning.
Martin Truex is a friend.
Just a lot of people. But
when the King came over,
that was pretty special."

ON HOW SPECIAL IT
IS TO WIN THE
DAYTONA 500
"I've thought about it a


bit again, it hasn't all
sunk in when we had the
driver's meeting with all of
the great drivers up there,
to see all the history of the
sport sitting on one stage -
obviously it's not all the-
history, it's only part of the
history but to be someone
who appreciates the history
(of the Daytopa 500),
whether it's '76 when Petty


and (David) Pearson had
their deal or '98 when
(Dale) Earnhardt shook
everyone's hand on pit
road, those are the two
things that stick out in my
mind. Just to be part of the
50th running is an honor -
to win it, it's got to sink
in."

"It's sinking in,"
Newman said. "It takes
time. It's huge. It's the
50th running of the

Daytona 500 and it's
just an honor to be up
here with (owner)
Roger Penske and
(crew chief) Roy
McCauley and all these

guys over here in the

California with scheduled
appearances on the Late Show

"I've watch some Letterman and
I know he's a Hoosier and I know
he's very quick-witted and all of
those things so I'll try to give him
a run for his money," Newman
said.
