WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5, 2008 U SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK PAGE 3A


S. n : -i :h > -, the
sheriff's ,-; :, I -
theim the ,:
numr c of the wr. The
car had been sto!,n
from the Huddle House
in Live Oak and left on
my property.

Come take a ride with me. I am a woman
on a mission and a member of the Wellborn
Neighborhood Watch. So come along and
experience the night as it happens.
First, I check my safety equipment,
consisting of a cell phone, flashlight and a
big stick. It's dark, so I'm ready to go. As I
leave, I check the Sikes' home, the Brewer's
and the Hillhouse, and everything is OK.
Now I head toward Wellborn.
As I turn onto the Blue Sink Road, I
notice a tan car parked. I call my husband to
see if someone is there hunting, and he says,
"No." My next call is to the sheriff's office.
I give them the license number of the car.
The car had been stolen from the Huddle
House in Live Oak and left on my property.
Next I go to the Farmers' Market and
circle the parking lot. The same for the Gate
station, McDonald's and B.B. Ann's Country
Kitchen. I turn onto 137 and go past the
Cribbs' family farm. Everyone in the state
has tried some of Miss Helen's famous
mouth-watering mayhaw jelly. You have
really missed a wonderful treat if you
haven't been to one of the Cribbs' pancake
and sausage suppers at Thanksgiving. Syrup
cooking, Gospel singing and a huge yard
sale that is the way to spend a weekend.
We cross over Interstate 75 and we enter
Hogansville: Connie, Wilbur and Tommy.
On the left live Kathie and Wendell; he is a
smooth-talking, fast-moving kind of guy.
Next is a sharp curve, so I slow down. On
the corner of Mt. Olive Road and 137 is the
dumpster site, where Bob hangs out. Taking
out the trash is an everyday job for him. He
greets you with a "hello" and a big smile.
The next curve is where a license check is
set up from time to time. Stay within the
speed limit driving through Wellborn. I go
over the railroad tracks and wave to Johnny


WELLBORN NEWS
by Betty Barnes

and his dog. I know Johnny has been
watching the train go by every day for tl
last 25 years. I stop at the post office anc
pick up Ruth. We drive through every stb
in Wellborn. We go by Daisy's and go in
to visit a short time. She offers us Cokes

Just down the street, a number of
cars are parked at Karl and Robin's.
It's not a Friday or Saturday night,
so no party is going on. We stop and
go to the door. It's just relatives
from out of town. They invite us to
eat with them, but we have to move
on. We go to the S & S at the county
line to see Susie and to have an ice-
cold, white tea. Everything is
normal.
We head west on 90 to the B & B
and go in to talk to Pam. They have
the best thin-crust pizza I have ever
tasted. We head back to the post
office and we see Junior and-his pal,
Custer. We go south on 137 to 252,
turn left, and we see three large deer
and a baby deer crossing the road. We sl
and wait for them to cross.
We turn north on Bailey Road at
Taylorville and back to Highway 90. We
drive through each block of Wellborn an.

Suwannee Democrat



Let's not

It angers us too that the Democra-
tic National Committee has disen-
franchised 1.7 million Floridians by
making it clear their votes in the
Jan. 29 presidential primary won't
count. The DNC had threatened not
to seat Florida's delegates should
the state hold its primary before
Feb. 5. Florida did it anyway, and
here we are.
In recent weeks, however, cries
have risen for a revote in Florida -
a do-over. We think that's a bad
idea. Forget the logistics and forget
the cost. The real reason is simpler
than either of those. It's credibility.
Considering how the political
landscape has shifted in recent
weeks, a do-over might well yield
different results than the original
vote. Just the possibility calls into
question the motives of those push-
ing for a "second primary." Credi-
bility faith in the basic fairness
and predictability of the system is
the foundation without which
democracy falters. A revote at this
date could cause cracks, however
small, in that foundation.
What's the alternative? The DNC
could seat the Florida delegation
and be done with it. But that's been
called unfair as well, since neither
Hillary Clinton nor Barack Obama
campaigned here (both having
signed an agreement with the DNC
not to). Of course, if both candi-
dates were equally constrained, it's
hard to see anything unfair about it.
Here's the better reason for leav-
ing things well enough alone. Sim-
ply put, the Jan. 29 election was il-
legitimate. Holding the primary
earlier than party rules allowed was
akin to a state holding its congres-
sional elections in April. This isn't
a question of votes not being count-
ed. It's a matter of votes improper-
ly cast to begin with.
Let's lay the blame for this fiasco
where it belongs at the feet of
Florida Legislature. It was that au-
gust body that decided to move the
primary to begin with. It's too late
to do anything about it this time.
But let's remember it the next time
our lawmakers decide to tinker
with the gears of democracy.

Loving pets for you from the Suwannee County Animal Shelter


By Ana Smith
It's that time of year when our
shelter becomes swamped with
litters of puppies and kittens, and
we're starting off with a couple of
them already. This week we're
featuring one of the litters that was
dropped off at the shelter, six
really cute black lab puppies who
are now about eight weeks old,
very lovable and very playful.
They have had their first shots,
will soon receive their second
ones, and are ready to be adopted
now. They are still in foster care,
but there is a picture of the litter at
the shelter, and if you are looking


for one of these adorable puppies,
just call and make arrangements
for the foster parent to bring them
to the shelter so you can choose
one for your family.
We are hoping for a home for
"Speckles" and "Lady," who have
been featured in this column
before while in foster care, but
who are now at the shelter and
ready to welcome visitors. They
are now about five to six months
old, very playful, and would be
great with older children who will
play with them and give them a lot
of loving.
We also have one little eight-

week old female bulldog mix who
is the sweetest little puppy, loves
to be held and cuddled, although
she'll be a medium sized dog when
she's grown. And her mama,
whom we have been calling
"Maggie," is also available to be
adopted. She's a very affectionate
dog, is well-behaved around other
animals, and would make a good
yard dog.
We have many other cat and
dogs, puppies and kittens, ready to
go to good homes. We are located
at 11150 144th St., about eight
miles south of Live Oak off US
129, on the same road as the big

dog, and is ready to go to a loving home.


county landfill. We are open on
Monday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.,
on Tuesday through Friday from 9
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Saturday
from 9 to about noon. If you plan
on coming to the shelter on
Saturday, it's a good idea to call
first to make sure someone will be
there. For information on the
animals featured today and for
shelter hours, call 386-208-0072.
And please, please, please! Have
you pet spayed or neutered. The
hardest part of our job here at the
shelter is having to put down
lovable animals because we just
don't have the room to keep them,


This little female boxer mix is
very sweet, likes to be held
and cuddled, and is ready for

and it breaks our hearts to see
these animals that would make
wonderful pets be put down.
We are always in need of
volunteers and donations to keep
our shelter going. If you have any
time at all, we welcome your help
and your support. Our volunteers
usually meet at the shelter on the
first and third Wednesdays of the
month at 10 a.m. You can call our
office for the date and time of the
next meeting, which is scheduled
for Wednesday, March 5 and
March 19. We are preparing for
our spring fundraiser and welcome
all ideas and help. God bless.

Lost horse

The students of the School Without Walls assisted Deputy Bri-
an Barrs of the Suwannee County Sheriff's Office Monday with
the rescue of a horse that was loose and running in the vicini-
ty of 163rd Road and CR 136. The horse appears to be a two
to four-year-old Appaloosa mare. Anyone with information
about the animal should contact the Suwannee County Sher-
iff's Office at 386-362-2222. Danielle Herb is pictured here with

genres, including blues, jazz, bluegrass, Celtic,
Cajun, classical, folk, fusion, country, New Age,
Western swing, American roots and Native
American. In addition to the violin, he is also an
accomplished mandolin, guitar and Native flute
player. An experienced musician who toured
,/ the world with Glen Campbell, Loretta Lynn,
Ra\ Price and others for a number of years, in
2001 Bird turned his musical focus to his
mixed-blood heritage (his mother is

spends most of his time on touring
while writing and recording music
that reflects that background.

Early treatment of stroke recommended
A stroke may occur in response to reduced blood supply to the
brain. When this happens, brain tissue does not receive adequate
oxygen and nutrients, which can lead to death of brain cells. It is
very important that treatment of a stroke begin as soon as possible to
limit the amount of damage to the brain. Signs and symptoms of a
stroke typically occur suddenly and include weakness or numbness
in one side of the body, difficulty speaking, blurred vision, and
dizziness.
Immediate treatment of a stroke is crucial. Tissue plasminogen
activator drugs, such as alteplase (Activase) and reteplase
(Retavase), are often injected into the vein to dissolve a blood clot.
However, these types of medications must be used within three
hours of the occurrence of the stroke. Persons who experience an
ischemic stroke may not receive this type of treatment if the length
of time between symptom onset and treatment is too long.
Physicians may also prescribe medications for the prevention of the
recurrence of ischemic stroke in persons who have experienced a
previous ischemic stroke. Anti-platelet medications, such as
clopidogrel (Plavix) and ticlopidine (Ticlid), reduce the likelihood of
clot-formation. Anticoagulant medications, such as heparin and
warfarin (Coumadin), also work to affect blood clotting. 430297.F

When Mincks asked for
Mattox's driver's license,
Mattox reportedly said he
did not have it. Mincks
then determined that Mat-
tox's license was suspend-
ed and he had an open war-
rant.
Mincks asked several
times that Mattox exit the
vehicle. Mattox reportedly
commented that he was go-
ing to go to jail either way,
at which point he placed
the car in gear and fled
from the parking lot.
Mattox led deputies on a
lengthy pursuit through
Suwannee, Columbia and
Alachua Counties. Reports
state that speeds reached
more than 110 miles per
hour.
Deputies finally stopped
the vehicle in Columbia
County.
Mattox was placed into
custody and transported to
the Columbia County Jail.

er may be 79, but
.He still wants to give
back to her communi-


Walker has volun-
teered for the family
a,, readiness program of
the Florida National
Guard, 868th Engineer Co. (formerly 269th)
since 1988.
"The guys at the [unit] refer to her as
'Granny Pearl,'" said her daughter, Vivian
Starling.
Sgt. 1st Class Charles Bennett, recruiter
and career counselor for 868th unit, met
Walker five years ago.
Bennett said Walker has done everything
from fundraising to organizing events for
the program. Walker made a flag for the unit
which was hung at the roundabout when the
unit was deployed to Iraq. She also helped
raise funds for the monument that sits in
front of armory to commemorate those who
served in Iraq.
"She's a major asset to that unit," Bennett.
said. "She makes everyone smile when she
comes in."
The family readiness program serves the
needs of the family members of those who
are called to active duty, as well as promotes
fundraising projects throughout the year.
She still serves on the retirement committee,
in which she notifies unit retirees of upcom-
ing events.
Walker got involved with the program af-


ter her son John Walker and son-in-law Ru-
fus Starling became members of the 269th.
Her grandson Will Starling also serves in
the unit. Both John and Will have served
with the National Guard in Iraq rebuilding
roads.
Walker said she was relieved %\hen mem-
bers of the unit returned home after their
second trip to Iraq.
"It was such a blessing to see every one of
them marching in, not one with a-wheel-
chair, a wound or anything...," she said.
Walker was chosen to serve as grand mar-
shal for the Branford River Reunion parade
in 2003, the year the 269th Engineering Co.
was honored in the parade for their service
in Iraq.
When Walker's children were in school
she served in the football and band booster
clubs. Her children were in band John
played clarinet. Vivian played the flute and
was on the majorette team.
"I had the white pants to make sure they
were clean every Friday night," Walker said.
Vivian Starling said one of Walker's jobs
as a football booster member was to get the
film of the football games developed.
"They relied on her to ... have [the film]
back for that Sunday for review for the next
week," Starling said.
The second Saturday in April, Wellborn
High School graduates celebrate their high
school reunion. Walker helps organize the
event and sets up a memorabilia table for
classmates who have passed away. The class
will have its 60th reunion this year.
Walker played basketball in high school
for three years. She has kept her jersey and
she says she can still wear it, too.


After high school Walker got a job at the
Greyhound bus station in Live Oak. She lat-
er owned and operated the station for 10
years. After that she was the front desk su-
pervisor at the Holiday Inn in Lake City for
38 years.
Walker was recognized by the Columbia
County Tolurist Development Council for
contributing to Columbia County's tourism
industry through her job with the Holiday
Inn.
"Through the people she greeted and met
she'd tell them about the Boys Ranch, and
she'd tell them about Stephen Foster and the
Spirit of the Suwannee," Starling said.
"She worked until the night they closed
the doors," Starling said, referring to last
May, when the building was closed for
good.
Walker said that was a sad day for her.
Walker married her late husband Hilton
John Walker Sr. He was 21 years older than


she-
The couple was married March 24, 1951.
She says they were the first couple to get
married in Westwood Baptist's first build-
ing.
The Walkers were married for 36 years.
The couple lived on a farm near the
Suwannee County Airport. They later decid-
ed to move to town after purchasing a home
from former sheriff Duke McCallister. The
home, which sat where the Live Oak Sub
Shop now sits, needed to be cut in half to
move it to Piedmont Street where the Walk-
ers owned three lots.
Walker said it was so big that even after it
was cut in half the home dug into the grass
along the curb while being moved.
They raised their children in their new
home. After the children were grown they
moved into a smaller home next door.
Smaller in size, perhaps. but packed to the
rafters with love.

Ernie Els won his first

It was Els' 16th career
PGA win. Pretty
impressive, except in
between Els' last two
victories Tiger has won 23

he will be the most

time. Hank might be right
and Woods has a lot of

Dock Talk
By Damon Wooley
If you were to show up at a bass
tournament on the Suwannee River and ask a
dozen different anglers what's the best lure
to catch bass on the Suwannee with, you'd
probably get a dozen different answers. On
second thought, you might not get any
answers. Tournament fishermen are pretty


tight lipped about what they use to catch
bass. Even if they do tell you something, it
will probably be a stretch of the truth, at
best.
I often catch bass in the Suwannee on
lures that are commonly referred to in
fishing circles as "standard issue" baits.

Boyette for the win.
Boyette had singled, stolen
2nd and advanced to third
on a passed ball before
scoring the winning run on
Ellis' single to right field.
Zane Stephens was called to
the mound in the 5th inning
and held the Dogpack the
last two innings to give
Suwannee a chance in their
last at bat. Carter Wiggins
and Samuel McMillan both
had a base hit to support the
A's attack.
In game two, the A's held
on to beat the North Florida
Hurricanes 5-3 in a time


limit shortened, five inning
game. A defensive battle,
the Athletics' Braxton Furry
and Carter Wiggins
combined on the mound to
hold the Hurricanes bats at
bay. Offensively, Chase
Hatfield, Josh Boyette(2),
Hueston Morrill and Carter
Chancey all scored for
Suwannee.
This win made the A's the
2nd seed going into the
single elimination play on
Sunday and set them up for
a rematch with the talented
Dogpack, although they
came in the #6 seed.
Suwannee sent their two
hardest thro0\ ing kids to the


mound in this important
semi final game. Ellis threw
the first four innings and
Stephens pitched the fifth to
close the game out. The A's
bats really came to life
behind the hitting of Ellis (2
hits, 4 runs), Stephens (2
hits, 2 runs), and Samuel
McMillan and Chancey (2
runs each). Ryan Warner,
Boyette, Morrill, Hatfield
and Tyler Myrick all singled
and scored a run in the
game.
The highlight of the game
was in the bottom of the
fifth inning when Stephens
hit a grand slam home run
to drive in 4 runs and give


the A's the victory by way
of the mercy rule, an 8 run
rule after 4 innings of play,
to end the game.
Next was the
championship game on
Sunday afternoon, against a
tough Jacksonville Jackets
team. The Jackets had saved
their ace pitcher for this
game, a big, strong young
man that threw a fastball
harder than any other
pitcher the boys had seen
this season. He struck out
9 Suwannee batters in 4
innings as the A's fell 3-11.
Ellis, Stephens, McMillan
and Hatfield were the only
A's to collect base hits.

Essentially meaning that these aren't
secret lures and most avid tournament
anglers on the Suwannee have these baits
in their arsenal and regularly use them to
catch bass. Most of these "standard
issue" lures have produced for anglers on
the Suwannee for many years, even
before bass tournaments became popular.
Sometimes, a certain bait may be the
difference in fishing or catching. If
catching is what you want to do, I suggest
you arm yourself with one or more of
these five baits the next time you go
fishing for bass on the Suwannee River.
Of course, some of you are going to
disagree with me, but here in no
particular order are five of the baits that
are constant producers on the Suwannee
River and its tributaries.
The first "standard issue".lure is a
"yellow floater" as it's commonly
referred to by tournament anglers.
Fishing a floater is a fun way to catch
both numbers and the occasional big fish.
The actual lure is a yellow Zoom trick
worm, though bubble gum is a good color
at times too and Keith "Chubby" Bonds
is the best angler I know at fishing this
bait. He works the weightless lure in the
upper portion of the water column with
his signature "jerk, jerk, pause" cadence.
This type of retrieve often will draw a
strike that Chubby refers to as a "toilet
bowl flush." Use your imagination on
that one.
The second lure, which is has been
around for generations, is a Snagless
Sally. For any of you aspiring anglers that
have never heard of this lure, it's actually
an in-line spinnerbait made by
Hildebrandt. The size, weight and colors
of the Sally are endless, but one of my
all-time favorites is a 1/2 oz. #4 1/2 gold
bladed black and yellow Sally. This is an
easy bait to fish. Just cast it out and reel
it back! It excels when fished around
laydowns and other cover in the river.
The third lure is a lot older than I am
and its world renowned for its fish
catching abilities. The Rapala floating
minnow is what I referring to and the
Rapala also comes in a-variety of sizes
and colors. I've caught fish on just about
all of them, but one of my favorites is the
#11. Two of the most popular colors for
the river are black back/silver belly and
black back/gold belly. This lure is usually


fished on top with gentle twitches of the
rod tip. This is an awesome lure for
catching really big bass in the river if you
have the patience to fish it slowly and
methodically. I'm sure you could fish
this lure fast and catch fish too but I also
don't think you can fish a Rapala too
slow, if that tells you anything.
The fourth lure is a crankbait and it can
be a little dangerous if you have more
than one person in the boat (I can attest,
because I've had a set of #4 Gamakatsu
trebles cut out of my back by a physician
before) but it is great for targeting deep
fish. There are hundreds of crankbaits on
the market that will catch fish on the
Suwannee River and again, most anglers
have their favorites, but one that's been
my standby for a lot of years is the Deep
Little N made by Bill Norman Lures.
I've often wondered if crankbait colors
actually matter as much to the fish as
they do to the fisherman and they
probably don't, but if you want to "match
the hatch" in the Suwannee I'd choose a
crawfish pattern color just to be safe.
The fifth and final lure is probably the
most popular, mainly because of its
versatility and it is a soft plastic Texas-
rigged worm. Bass Assassin Lures,
which are produced over in Mayo, make
a great selection of baits that will catch
fish in the Suwannee River. The owner
of Bass Assassin, Robin Shiver, is an
accomplished angler who has fished the
Suwannee for many years and his plastics
have accounted for some awesome
catches on the Suwannee over the years.
Two of my favorite Bass Assassin colors
are junebug/blue tail and red shad/green
glitter. Bass Assassin produces a plethora
of sizes ranging from inches up to a foot
long but if we're talking "standard issue"
let's just say 7.5 inches is the norm. As
far as weighting the worm I would have
to say that conditions, current and cover
will dictate the best choice. If I had to
pick one to cover it all I would go with a
3/16 oz Penetrater bullet weight.
Okay, there you have it. Five lures to
take to the Suwannee River and catch a
few bass. Remember though, that there
are other lures that will catch bass on the
Suwannee besides these "standard issue"
baits. If one of these five don't pan out
for you, give me a call and we'll set
something up where I can take you out
and show you a few lures and techniques
that are not "standard issue."

Larry Bowa was a pretty
good baseball player, an
average manager and
probably a good coach, but
he is truly an idiot. Major
League Baseball has a new
rule that base coaches must
wear batting helmets. This
is not some OSHA mandate,
it comes from the fact that a
coach was killed last
season. Standing less then
90 feet from homeplate and
usually coaching because
you are to old to play. A line
drive can approach you at
speeds of 90+ and you have
a quarter of a second to
react.


Bowa refused to wear a
helmet and said he would
pay the fine for every game.
He has since recanted, but
what a role model, what an
idiot.
Juan Encarnaci6n of the
St. Louis Cardinals has had
his career ended by getting
hit by a batted ball in the
on-deck circle. Beanings, a
related item, are not as
severe as they used to be
due to helmets and earflaps.
Jimmy Hall, who once held
a homerun record for
rookies, came up with the
flap after getting plunked. It
didn't save his career. Tony
Conigliaro had a promising
career cut short by a Jack
Hamilton fastball. Herb
Score, a great Cleveland
pitcher, took a batted ball
from Gil McDougald. Score
won 36 games in his first


two seasons. He would win
19 over his next six years.
Don "Popeye" Zimmer,
known more as Joe Torre's
bench coach than as a
player, spent 17 days in a
coma as a young ballplayer
and was one of the
motivating reasons for
batting helmets. Like
everything else, ballplayers
were grandfathered in when
batting helmets became
mandatory. The last.player
to not wear a batting helmet
was Rocky Colavito. Jon
Olerud, a Major League
first baseman forever,
always wore a batting
helmet in the field, on base
and at bat. It didn't stop him
from winning gold glo\ es
or a batting title. Get with
the program, Bowa, if you
don't want to wear a helmet
drive a motorcycle.

NFCC stuns the competition at

National Academic Tournament


Earns top spot on waitlist for international competition


Submitted

North Florida Community College
turned in its best performance ever at
a brain bowl tournament at the Florida
section of the National Academic
Quiz Tournament in Orlando Feb. 9.
NFCC defeated some of the best
teams in the southeast by considerable
margins. Among the teams that fell to
the NFCC-Team A were national
champions Broward Community
College, national runner-ups Valencia
Community College and the
previously undefeated super scholars
from Lake-Sumter Community
College.
At playoff time, NFCC-A was third.
After a three-game playoff sequence
in which NFCC and Valencia's Red
Team both went undefeated, another


playoff game was held.
Dr. Tony DeLia, NFCC coach,
described the lecture hall as "jam
packed, yet very quiet" as Valencia
and NFCC battled for the
championship title. Most of that time
NFCC led by a two or three question
margin. In the last two minutes of
competition, Valencia went on a roll
and earned just enough points to edge
out NFCC by less than one full
question's worth of points. The final
score was Valencia-Red 245 and
NFCC-A- 215.
On Friday, Feb. 15,.the NFCC-A
team learned that its performance was
good enough to put it at the very top
of the Division II waitlist for the
International Collegiate Tournament
in St. Louis, Mo. in April. This means
that if any of the 32 schools invited to


the ICT decline their place, NFCC
will be invited.
NFCC is among good company on
the Division II waitlist. Other waiting
teams are Harvard, Cornell and
Northwestern.
Representing NFCC were (NFCC-
A): Captain Jessica Collins of Perry,
Tony Fluriach of Mayo and Chris
Nelsen of Perry. Nafees Khan of
Perry, is also on Team A. NFCC-B
members include Captain Matthew
Smith of Monticello, Michael Harris

Five win drawings for $500 NFCC scholarships


*


Jill Hunt Sandra Oquindo


Casey Strevel


Rachel Watson


Submitted

Ryan M. Crosby, Jill Hunt,
Sandra Oquindo, Casey Strevel,
and Rachel L. Watson are the
lucky recipients of $500
scholarships offered by the North
Florida Community College
(NFCC) Foundation, Inc. to help
boost spring enrollment at
NFCC. All five winners are
either first time or readmitted
students and began classes Jan. 7.
While it is early to tell the
overall effect of the campaign, as
of this date, the number of
students enrolled in the 2008


spring term slightly exceeds
those enrolled at the same date
last year.
According to scholarship
winners, the additional $500 has
come in handy in covering the
cost of tuition, books and college
fees.
"I really appreciate the
generosity of this scholarship,"
said Watson, 25, from Taylor
County. Married and the mother
of three boys, Watson's goal is to
earn an associate degree in
nursing. She has certified nursing
assistant (CNA) training from
NFCC and works part-time at


Advent Christian Village in
Dowling Park. Watson is
completing prerequisites to begin
the two-year registered nursing
program.
First-time student Oquindo is a
Pilipino native making Madison
County her home. She is working
toward an A.S. degree in nursing.
Oquindo said she especially likes
the convenience of the NFCC
campus and appreciates NFCC's
good reputation in the area.
Hunt, another first time student
and scholarship winner, is from
Taylor County. An 18-year old
Taylor County High School


graduate, she works at Fiddlers
Restaurant in Steinhatchee and
takes classes to earn an A.A.
degree. Her plans are to go into
the dental hygienic field. Hunt
thinks NFCC's best asset is its
"welcoming campus and faculty -
all very nice people."
A returning student, Strevel,
21, is using the scholarship to
complete an A.A. degree with an
emphasis in business. Her goal is
to own her own business. Strevel
is a former Taylor County High
School student and works full
time at Appearance First Salon.
Crosby, a 19-year-old returning


student from Madison County, is
earning an A.A. degree. His
scholarship winnings will help
with living and book expenses.
"The faculty and staff's
willingness to help is my favorite
aspect of NFCC," said Crosby.
After graduating from NFCC, he
plans to attend the Air Force
Academy in Colorado Springs,
Co. His ambition is to become a
helicopter pilot and one day form
a command in the military.

NFCC Foundation at

OUTDOORS




Sign up now for FWC summer camp


.Do your children long to
spend their summer days in the
great outdoors? Would they love
the chance to learn about
wildlife from experts, and hike
or canoe with other children
their age?
Then it's time to sign them up
for the Ocala Outdoor
Adventure Camp at the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) Ocala
Conservation Center in the
Ocala National Forest.
Registration for the 2008
summer sessions has already
begun.
The summer camp is for boys
and girls ages 9-16 and focuses
on wildlife conservation,
outdoor skills and firearm
safety. This year, the camp
offers six one-week sessions
beginning June 15.
The primary goal of the camp
program is to help children


become good, conservation-
minded sportsmen and wildlife
stewards. They learn these skills
and values through fun and
educational programs and
activities such as fishing,
canoeing, swimming, hiking and
many other outdoor pursuits.
Tuition is $295 per camper,
per week and includes lodging,
food, program materials and
instruction for each session.
Each weeklong session is
divided into four groups, each
with a different focus.
"Campers in the wildlife and
conservation group go wild
exploring nature," said Greg
Workman, director of the Ocala
Conservation Center. "They
learn about wildlife concepts
and enjoy many traditional camp
activities as well as gun safety
and other fun, hands-on outdoor
activities."
For the camper who wants to


take the hunter safety course,
the hunter safety group is the
way to go. This program
teaches campers how to be safe
and ethical outdoorsmen and
women. They'll learn about
wildlife and its habitat and be
able to apply what they learn
when they go into the woods. In
addition, they will have a
chance to get their certification,
which is required by law before
they can get their hunting
license.
"They will receive firearm
and archery safety instruction
from certified range safety
officers. They'll also learn basic
outdoor skills and field first-aid
training, and do other traditional
camp activities," Workman said.
After the camper completes
their hunter safety certification,
they're eligible for the advanced
hunting skills program. This
program is designed to pick up


where the hunter safety program
leaves off. The campers explore
hunting with a special emphasis
on wildlife management and
hunting skills.
"This exciting new program
teaches the campers essential
management techniques, like
learning how to age and score
deer, as well as teaching turkey-
and duck-calling skills,"
Workman said.
The final program is
sponsored by the African Safari
Club of Florida and focuses on
wilderness outdoor skills.
"This program is for campers
who have an avid interest in the
outdoors. They'll get to
experience several outdoor
adventures, including an
overnight primitive camping trip
into the forest and hiking on the
Florida Trail," Workman said.
"Before leaving base camp,
campers prepare for the


experience by learning the
fundamentals of surviving in the
wilderness, orienteering,
backpacking and preparing a
campsite."
The Ocala Conservation
Center is on a 57-acre peninsula,
rich in history and wildlife,
located in Marion County in
North Central Florida. It is 20
miles east of Ocala, on Lake
Eaton, in the heart of the Ocala
National Forest. The facilities
are rustic, yet comfortable, with
air-conditioned cabins and
dining hall. The classrooms
have no walls and include
fishing piers, shooting ranges,
nature trails, Lake Eaton and the
vast Ocala National Forest.

registration materials for the
summer program, call 352-625-

By Brenda Chapman
After the tragic death of our favorite racing
legend in the winter of 20011 thought that
Sunday (race day) would never again be the same
again. There was no longer the urge to sit in front
of the television locked to the race, because our
driver was gone. We know that we weren't the
only race fans with an empty place in our hearts
and our Sundays. At this point, like many other
race fans, we thought.we had lost our love
for our favorite sport. But like all wounds
time began to heal the hurt and the race
was back on the TV on Sunday.
Even though at times tears still flowed at
an unforeseen time, we knew that a true
race fan doesn't give up when the cards are
down, so rather than continuing to grieve
we found a way to help not only heal our
hurt but that of many race fans. Our racing
hero Dale Earnhardt was gone and we had


to go on, as many a
race fan has had to do
when their favorite
driver met the same
fate. We decided that a
traveling tribute to our
favorite race drivers
from history could help
not only ourselves but
many others get over
this tragic accident and
bring us back to the
sports we loved. We all
know that is what our
racing heroes would
have wanted from their


fans.
In April of 2001 we decided
to turn thought into reality.
After a few hours online we
started to locate racecars from
the past for sale, and the ideas
began to flow. You can go to
any race and see the Legends
in the making, but we wanted
to remind the fans that no one
forgets the heroes of the past,
and so our Legends of the
Last Century Tour came to be.
By May of 2001 we
had purchased our first
three racecars and so
our Legend had begun.
We had purchased.
I three famous racecars'
from history and
started to put together
o" ur show tour Within


Our racing hero
Dale Earnhardt
was gone and
we had to go
on, as many a
race fan has
had to do when
their favorite
driver met the
same fate. We
decided that a
traveling tribute
to our favorite
race drivers
from history
could help not
only ourselves
but many
others get over
this tragic
accident and
bring us back
to the sports
we loved.


less than a month we
. 'had added a fourth car and by Labor Day
Weekend of the same year we obtained one
of the most famous cars in NASCAR
P history, the famed Wrangler Jeans Monte
Carlo that Dale Earnhardt St. drove to
victory at Talladega in 1987.
Shows were starting to line up'and the
tour was on. A few days later we met with
the same unexpected fear implanted into
our business and our hearts as the rest of
the United States 9/11 had just
happened. With every business old or new
unsure where to turn we thought the dream
would stop there. I returned to a full time.
job and our beloved racecars were parked.
But as before, time healed our hearts and it
was time to start again, so in the Spring of 2002
we started to promote the tour again and from this
point on have never looked anyway but forward.
Now in 2008 we own seven racecars driven by
some of the most famous drivers in history and
once again it is time for the dream to come full
circle. We envision a racing legends museum, a
place worthy of being the final resting place for
the cars of some of the most famous drix ers in
history. We are currently in our eighth year w ith
the show tour and we would like to thank all who
have helped us survive and grow and to invite
those who have not yet seen our show to join us.
My name is Brenda Chapman and my husband
Wes and I would like to invite you to learn more
about our show tour at www.chapman-
motorsports.com. We can be reached toll free at
866-416-0083. Feel free to call with questions or
comments. Please join us at Wes Haney Chevrolet
and see the cars that made the drivers become
stars.

Fitness After 50: World's

Teaches Boomers
While the X and Y generations are at home uploading their iPods and arguing the
merits/disadvantages to Nintendo's Wii or Sony's latest Playstation incarnation, a
different generation of people are steering clear of the couch potato mentality and
becoming more physically active.
Folks over 50 are the fastest-growing segment of the fitness population, say
recent reports. There are several reasons behind this trend. Most Baby Boomers
don't want to feel "old," as they grow older. So, they're putting an emphasis on
cultivating a greater quality of life in a number of ways. In addition to establishing
financial security and acquiring the creature comforts they couldn't afford in their
youth, the 50+ set is also focusing in on physical health making it a top priority.
"A lot of the problems once believed to be associated with aging, like aches,
pains, fatigue, and lack of strength, really aren't side effects of getting older ...
they're from disuse of the body," says Bill Collins, 57, a master sprinter and
world's fastest human for his age. "I am a prime example of how you can be in the
best shape of your life while getting older. On the track, I've beat my best times
from when I was 30 years younger."
Collins has won 91 American Masters crowns at the USA Masters Track and
Field Championships as well as 18 World Track Championship titles as a master
sprinter. His 33 world records in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 400 meters make
him the fastest runner alive for his age. "By remaining physically active,-and doing
the right activities for the body in ways that are age appropriate other silver-
haired people can enjoy a better quality of life, too," says Collins.
Collins' Tips to Getting Active
1. Fitness centers: "You probably won't step into a gym and hear them pumping
The Grateful Dead or Motown favorites through the sound system, these days,"
says Collins, "but gyms are doing a lot to cater to the over-50 crowd." Many gyms
are refocusing attention from the hard-body athletes to the "everyday people" who
desire a natural, healthy body. Through this, gyms are attracting a greater
percentage of Boomer clientele. Several fitness center ad campaigns are targeted
toward Boomers, and fitness instructors are being schooled in the ways older adults
should be reintroduced to a fitness routine. "With these changes in place, hitting the
gym can be a great way to get back into shape," says Collins.
2. Determine your physical age: Fitness instructors should help you tailor a
program right for your level of ability. Your "physical age" may not be the same as
your chronological one, and workouts should be based on your physical ability. "If
you've been out of the fitness loop for a while, you'll want to build up gradually to
the fitness level you desire," offers Collins. "I suggest slower warm-ups and
routines that focus on long-term consistency and building stamina."
.3. Performance Wear: Even though aches and pains aren't necessarily the result
of aging, suffice it to say that a 50-year-old's body has a few more miles on it than
someone in his or her 30s. Therefore, it's important to support joints and muscles to

How to Get Active


Bill Collins (foreground) pulls ahead of the competition.


reduce the chance of injury while working out, regardless of activity. "I'm never
without CW-X Conditioning Wear when I'm on the track," says Collins. In fact,
by wearing his signature CW-X tights, and due to his record holding speed, Collins is
affectionately known as "Superman," in some running circles. CW-X Conditioning
Wear, tops and tights, features a patented Conditioning WebTM that cradles muscles
and joints, protecting them from jarring impact and injury. Apparel even features UPF

4. Clue-in your doctor: Don't forget to run your fitness regimen by your doctor
before beginning. He or she can point out activities that may be helpful (or harmful)
for your condition. "I know it sounds cliche, but definitely check with your doctor
before jumping into physical activity. You don't want to risk injury that will sideline
you for weeks or months," warns Collins. If exercising ever causes you to have
excessive shortness of breath, light-headedness or difficulty with balance, stop and
consult your doctor.

- LISTED AMONG AL.L NATIONS ~ MAR 13:10


KEEP PRESSING ON


By Pam Campbell
Sf 9 orgetting what is behind
and straining toward what
is ahead, I press on toward
the goal to win the prize
for which God has called
me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Philippians
13:3b Are you still pressing on, or are you
feeling burned out, tired out, or defeated?
God desires to help us reach our goal, to win
the prize, but we must want to win. Many
times people get so tired of trying to do the
right thing, or of doing the same thing, or.
maybe tired of things not turning out the way
that they had planned that they loose sight of
the goal, they loose sight of the prize. I have
heard many people say things like "I do the
same thing year after year and no one cares,
or I have made so many mistakes, I keep
messing things up, maybe I should just give
up trying." Look at the scripture that this arti-
cle begins with, it says "forgetting what is be-
hind and straining toward what is ahead."
The things that you may have messed up on,
the mistakes you may have made are in the
past, the things that you do year after year
more than likely people did care, but whether
they did or not is in the past now, what mat-
ters is what is ahead. The scripture goes on to
say, "I press- on toward the goal to win the
prize for which God has called me heaven-
ward in Christ Jesus." Instead of thinking
about past mistakes or regretting what you
have been doing, look to the Lord for direc-
tion for your future and how you can keep
pressing on for him. We need to remember
that we- are not running the race of life alone,
we have Jesus right beside us everyday. An-
other scripture verse in that same chapter
shows us this. Philippians 3:12 "Not that I
have already obtained all this, or have already
been made perfect, but I press on to take hold
of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of
me." You see Jesus has already taken hold of
you, he is always with you holding you, guid-
ing you, protecting you, helping you to be-
come what God wants you to be. Maybe
things are going great in your life, maybe you
have achieved great success, thank the Lord
for it and always remember that no matter
how great the success is, there is nothing that
we can ever do or receive in this world com-
pared to the greatness of knowing the Lord
Jesus Christ. The greatest thing in the world
is the Joy of knowing Jesus. I wonder do
any of us feel like Paul did when he wrote
about pressing on in the book of Philippians?
He felt like nothing he had ever done or
achieved compared to the knowledge of
knowing Jesus Christ as his Lord. He said
that he would gladly give up everything to
have the joy of Jesus, calling him his friend,
and his brother. He says that he did not de-
serve that, but that Jesus called him that be-
cause he loved him. It is the same way with
each of us, we don't deserve it, but Jesus
loves us so much that he calls us friends and
his brother if we believe in him. If we have
faith in him, he will help us to be good and
worthy of his friendship and love. Would we
be willing as Paul was to give up everything
if we had to in order to have the joy of Jesus
calling you his friend and brother? We should

be willing, but thanks to God we don't have
to give up everything, as long as we believe
in Jesus we are his friend and brother. Jesus,
does tell us what we need to do in John 15:12
"My command is this: Love each other as I
have loved you. Greater love has no one than
this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
You are my friends if you do what I com-
mand. I no longer call you servants, because a
servant does not know his master's business.
Instead, I have called you friends, for every-
thing that I learned from my Father I have
made known to you. You did not choose me,
but I chose you and appointed you to go and
bear fruit-fruit that will last. Then the Father
will give you whatever you ask in my name.
This is my command: Love each other." Yes,
it is so easy to keep pressing on when we
learn to follow Jesus simple command, to
love each other. I cannot think of anything,
greater than having Jesus calling me his
friend. I am sure that you sometimes get
tired and weary, as I do, you may wonder how
in the world you can go on, especially when
things don't turn out the way you planned.
Maybe you are sick, or out of work, or having
some other problems and don't know what to
do about them. You may be lonely and won-
der where all hope has gone. I want to share
some good news with you! In the Bible,
which is God speaking to us, we find out
some great things about hope! Romans 15:4
"For everything that was written in the past
was written to teach us, so that through en-
durance and the encouragement of the
scriptures we might have hope." You
see everything in the Bible is to teach
and guide us, to help us have the en-
durance to keep pressing on, and to
encourage us so that we will have
hope always. The next verse Romans
15:5 gives us even more encourage-
ment. "May the God who gives en-
durance and encouragement give ,
you a spirit of unity among
yourselves as you follow :
Christ Jesus, so that with one
heart and mouth you may f
glorify the God and father of A.
our Lord Jesus Christ." God ,
wants his children to have '..
endurance and encourage-
ment and he also wants us ...
to have a spirit of unity,
to live and work togeth- .
er with everyone in ''
peace. We all need to
learn to work together

to glorify him. That is the hope that you need
when you feel that you cannot make it, that
you cannot reach the goal, reach out to the
Lord for his endurance,/his encouragement
and his hope. You can make it when you real-
ly believe in him, if you fully trust in him to
help you. When Paul wrote the words that
God gave him in the Bible he was not some
super human, he was not God, he was a per-
son like you and I, a follower of Jesus Christ,
called to be an apostle, and he believed. "For-
getting what is behind and straining toward
what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to
win the prize for which God has called me
heavenward in Christ Jesus." Philippians
13:3b We need to learn to do as Paul did and
just believe. This life that we are living
sometimes may not go as we planned or
sometimes things may turn out better than we
thought they would, but one thing is for sure,
we need to learn to forget about yesterday and
keep our eyes on the prize that God is keeping
for us, an everlasting life filled with love and
happiness with Jesus. You see we are citizens
of heaven, we are waiting for the arrival of
our savior Jesus, he will come back and trans-
form our bodies and he will put everything in
this world the way it should be, as God wants
it. The prize is worth the journey, the prize
is heaven for eternity! The journey is a won-
derful one if we keep our eyes on Jesus, he
will keep us in perfect peace, he will will lead
us and guide us, he will fill our lives with his
-. abundant joy. knowing Jesus is the
%way to live a happy. victorious

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER

KEEP PRESSING ON


By Pam Campbell
Most kids like to play games or
sports, and if you are like most
people you like to win. In the
Bible God talks about running a
race to win! Some of you may
have won a race. I really hope
that you will win the most impor-
tant race of all, the one talked
about in God's word, the Bible.
This race has the biggest prize of
all! "Forgetting what is behind
and straining toward what is
ahead, I press on toward the goal
to win the prize for which God
has called me heavenward in
Christ Jesus." Philippians 13:3b
God is talking about our lives
here and how we should not wor-
ry about the mistakes that we
might have made in the past, or
things that happened, but look
ahead and press on toward the
wonderful future God has for us.
We need to live for Jesus, to pray,
to love each other,
to read his word,
to do our best in
everything and share
his love with others.
We need to remember
that we are not run-
ning the race of life
alone, we have Jesus
right beside us every-
day. Another scrip-
ture verse in the Bible
shows us this. Philip-
pians 3:12 "Not that I
have already obtained all
this, or have already
been made perfect, but j
I press on to take
hold of that for V C.
which Christ Jesus
took hold of me."
You see Jesus has al- L,
ready taken hold of you,
he is always with you hold-
ing you, guiding you,
protecting you, help-
ing you to be-
come what God
wants you to
be. Maybe ,/
things are go-
ing great in your life, maybe you
have achieved great success,
thank the Lord for it and always
remember that no matter how
great the success is, there is noth-*
ing that we can ever do or receive
in this world compared to the
greatness of knowing the Lord Je-
sus Christ. The greatest thing in
the world is the Joy of knowing
Jesus. Jesus tells us in John
15:12 what we need to do to be
able to finish the race and he also
does something wonderful, he
calls us his friend! "My command
is this: Love each other as I have
loved you. Greater love has no
one than this, that he lay down his
life for his friends. You are my
friends if you do what I com-
mand. I no longer call you ser-
vants, because a servant does not
know his master's business. In-
stead, I have called you friends,
for everything that I learned from
my Father I have made known to
you. You did not choose me, but I
chose you and appointed you to
go and bear fruit-fruit that will
last. Then the Father will give
you whatever you ask in my


e


name. This is my command: Love
each other." Yes, it is so easy to
keep pressing on when we learn
to follow Jesus simple command,
to love each other. I cannot think
of anything greater than having
Jesus calling me his friend.
When Paul wrote the words that
God gave him in the Bible he was
not some superhero, he was not
God, he was a person like you
and I, a follower of Jesus Christ,
and he believed. "Forgetting what
is behind and straining toward
what is ahead, I press on toward
the goal to win the prize for
which God has called me heaven-
ward in Christ Jesus." Philippians
13:3b We need to learn to do as
Paul did and just believe.
Sometimes things in your life
may not turn out how you want or
sometimes things may turn out
better than you thought they
would, but one thing is for sure,
we need to learn to forget about
yesterday and
keep our eyes
on the prize
/ that God is keep-
ing for us, an ever-
lasting life filled
with love and happi-
S i ness with Jesus.
f The prize is worth
the journey we take
Sin our lives, the prize
is heaven for eterni-
ty! Your life can be
I wonderful if you keep
your eyes on Jesus, he
will lead us and guide
us, he will fill our
lives with his abun-
Rc-7 dant joy, knowing.
i r' Jesus is the way to
4. live a happy, victori-
ous life! Remember
to live for Jesus, to win
the most important race
j of all! Keep pressing
on!
