City

replacement
By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com
On the agenda for last
night's city council meeting
was an item seeking approval
of a new city attorney. Mayor
Sonny Nobles said Monday he
would recommend former city
attorney Ernie Sellers take the
post.
Nobles said that after Sell-
ers was appointed to serve on
an interim basis last week, he
offered to takes the position
permanently.
City Attorney David
Robertson resigned from his
city post and closed his private
practice last week. He has ac-
cepted the position of general
counsel for the Florida De-
partment of Transportation,
District Two.
Robertson served as the city
attorney for about a year after
Sellers retired from the post.
Sellers previously served as
counsel for the city for more
than 30 years.
If Sellers gets the job he will
be paid $9,572 annually, the
same as Robertson.

Stansel announces for Tax Collector


Stansel


Dwight Stansel has announced
his candidacy for the office of
Suwannee County Tax Collector.
"I decided in the fall of 2006 to be
a candidate for this office when the
incumbent, George Burnham Jr., an-
nounced his intention to retire," said
Stansel. 'This decision was made


after much consultation with
Suwannee County citizens and fam-
ily members. The rigors and pres-
sures of a campaign can be stressful
on candidates and sometimes more
so on families," Stansel noted.

Different types of drugs for Gout
Gout is characterized by sudden painful attacks in the joints, often
occurring at night. This condition is a form of arthritis that is more
likely to affect men than women. However the likelihood for women
to be affected increases after menopause. Uric acid is a substance
that is normally produced by the body, however may build up if
overproduced, or if the kidneys do not excrete enough. High levels
of uric acid in the blood lead to the formation of urate crystals.
Accumulation of such crystals around the joint causes inflammation
and intense pain, characterizing an attack of gout. The large joint of
the big toe is usually affected. Other joints in the feet, ankles, knees,
hands, and wrists also may become swollen and tender.
Medications available for the treatment of gout include nonsteroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), colchicine, and steroids.
NSAIDs are used to alleviate inflammation and pain associated with
this condition. Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve) are
examples of NSAIDs available in both over-the-counter and
prescription strength. Colchicine may be prescribed for persons who
are unable to take NSAIDs. Steroids, such as prednisone, also may
alleviate inflammation and pain, and may be prescribed for persons
who are unable to tolerate NSAIDs or colchicine.

Old-time barbering


Ronnie Cox is a fourth
generation barber who works at
the Old Tyme Barber shop in
Live Oak. About eight months
ago, he met some cottage parents
from the Florida Sheriffs Boys
Ranch and asked about the kids
who live there. He began to visit


.^ .j~pr^ 1^


the Boys Ranch once a month
and give free haircuts, telling
humorous stories and offering
good advice to about 30 boys.
Cox also began building his own
small 1950's style barbershop at
his home in Madison County. The
boys from Lewis cottage liked


Cox so much they made him his
own "barbershop pole" and
installed it on the first day of
business. Cox still works in Live
Oak at Old Tyme, but you can
occasionally find him at home on
a Monday and "open for
business."

Q 0 What are some of the causes
of cracking/flaking paint?

A Possible Cause:
Older substrates with multiple layers of
A paint
Overthinning the paint or spreading it too thin.
Poor surface preparation, i.e. when the paint is
applied to bare wood without priming.
Painting under cool or windy conditions that make
latex paint dr) too fast.
Use of a paint that has inadequate adhesion and
flexibility.
Remedies:
It may be possible to correct cracking that does not
go down to the substrate by removing the loose or
flaking paint wilh a scraper or wire brush, sanding to
feather the edges, repainting.
If the cracking goes down to the substrate, remove
all of the affected area by scraping and sanding, then
prime and repaint with a quality latex exterior paint.

Viewpoints/Opinions


BIBLE VERSE
Know therefore that the LORD your
God is God; he is the faithful God, keep-

generations of those who love him and
keep his commands.
Deuteronomy 7:9 (NIV)



Ouwannr rnmorrat
Members of the Suwannee Demo-
MYRA C.REGAN crat editorial board are Myra C.
Publisher Regan, publisher, and Robert
Bridges, editor. Our View, which
ROBERT BRIDGES appears in Wednesday editions of
Editor the Democrat, is formed by that
board.




OUR VIE!
Suwannee Democrat



What readers


are saying

Here's what's been on your mind lately, along
with our thoughts in response.

'A recent submission to Rant & Rave:

What's with picking on Suwannee High? Your
[March 5] front page carries an article headline,
"SHS grad sentenced for sexual assault." Gee, I
wonder what Suwannee High did to deserve this. No
other headline for any of four other arrests showed
where the suspect went to high school. The article in
question doesn't identify where the convict went to
church. Why not? It didn't identify where he worked
as a younger man here. Why not? You didn't even
inform us as to whether or not the convict had a sub-
scription to the Suwannee Democrat when he lived
here. I'm curious as to why the fact that he graduat-
ed SHS back in 2003 has some newsworthy bearing
since he was convicted of a crime committed in
2006 in the state of Connecticut. Perhaps you can
enlighten us. Anyone from your high school been ar-
. rested lately? ..... ...

The reference to SHS in the headline was simply a
shorthand way of indicating that the man in question
was a former local resident. We're big supporters of
Suwannee High, and in no way meant to suggest the
man's actions somehow reflected badly on the
school.



An entry from last Friday's Rant & Rave:

I did not subscribe to the Suwannee Democrat to
have it refer me to the computer for a story. Two
women win the Chamber of Commerce top annual
award and there is no story, just an advice to see the
story on whatever.com. No way to run a newspaper.

We understand the reader's concern. The publish-
ing world has begun to change of late, however, and
faster than anyone might have imagined. Changes
are inevitable for the Democrat as well. As the read-
er notes, not all our stories are printed in the news-
paper. Some appear only online, at suwanneedemo-
crat.com. Our goal, however, isn't to replace the
printed version of our paper, but to supplement it
with our online offerings.
The Internet will help us make available all lakinds
of additional information we might not otherwise be
able to publish from additional event photos to
property transaction records, for example. Stay
tuned for more on this front.
(By the way, we're still waiting to hear from read-
ers concerning the county commission agenda,
which we plan to begin publishing online rather
than in print. If you have an opinion about this or
other issues, please let us know.)



A relatively recent Letter to the Editor referred to
the Arrest Record as "gossip" and suggested print-
ing it in the Democrat was unnecessary since the
same information is available online (at the sheriff's
office website, www.suwanneesheriffcom).
In response, another reader noted not only that he
found the Arrest Record valuable, but that he did not
have a computer or Internet access and needed to


see it in print in our paper Rest assured, we have no
plans to quit publishing the Arrest Record.
Our goal is not only to provide you with the infor-
mation you want, but to give it to you in the form you
prefer Sometimes that means publishing stories and
photos both in print and on the Web. Sometimes it
means publication only in one form or the other
We're here to serve you, folks. Let us know what
you want and what you'd like us to work on for the
future. We'll do our best to deliver.

MEGA TENT EVENT IN JASPER -
SHOWING CONSUMERS THE RIGHT
WAY TO BUY NOW!
FEDERAL RATE CUT PROVIDES UNPRECEDENTED LENDING OPPORTUNITY;
CONSUMERS ADVISED TO BUY VEHICLES BEFORE RECESSION

FED RATE CUT PROVIDES UNPRECEDENTED OPPORTUNITY FOR CONSUMERS
The U.S. Federal Reserve boosted consumer hopes and comforted Wall Street investors by slashing interest rates by
three-quarters of a percentage point to 3.5 percent in an effort to save the economy from a recession. The economic
stimulus plan represented the largest single-day cut in a key interest rate in 25 years. The historic interest rate cut was
designed to encourage consumer spending and energize the nation's economy. Shortly after the Fed announced a reduc-
tion of its federal funds rate to 3.5 percent from 4.25 percent, most major banks reduced their prime lending rates by
the same amount. Since the Fed rate affects how much consumers pay on credit card debt, home equity lines of credit
and auto loans, economists predict that consumers' monthly debt obligations should slide along with the rate cut. For
consumers, the three-quarter point federal funds rate cut will mean lower interest rates on credit purchases, including
those of automobiles. According to Ford CEO Alan Mulally, the rate cut "gives the auto financing companies the abil-
ity to really bring some more credit into the marketplace...it's going to help consumer confidence". This means that if
you buy a car in the next few months, the payments will be substantially lower than they would have been without this
drop. Moreover, the rate reduction will allow manufacturers to offer financing incentive programs to prospective new-
car buyers at lower interest rates.

DEALERS DESPERATE TO SELL VEHICLES As Little as a $99/month!*
The current opportunity to obtain low interest rate consumer loans comes at a time when dealers are desperate moving to
sell vehicles through unprecedented rebate and incentive programs. Prior to the historic cut in the Federal Reserve's rate
cut, automobile dealerships had suffered due to the rumored housing slump and rising gasoline prices. Moreover, competi-
tion between foreign and domestic manufacturers has reached an epic pitch, giving consumers leverage when shopping for
new vehicles.. GM, Ford and Chrysler have been forced to boost incentives to maintain sales volume amid weak consumer
confidence and increased competition from foreign manufacturers.

CONSUMERS ADVISED TO BUY NOW BEFORE LOOMING RECESSION CAUSES SPIKE IN
INTEREST RATES.
The current rate cut has provided consumers a unique, limited opportunity to obtain low interest loans. Consumers are
advised to take advantage of this historic lending opportunity before the looming recession arrives. Indeed, a spike in
the federal funds rate coupled with write-offs from the housing slump may impact banks' willingness to lend. Should
a recession occur later in the year, consumers shall face a much more difficult time getting auto loans due to more
stringent credit standards. Thus, the current fed rate cut may provide consumers with the best opportunity to obtain
advantageous vehicle financing. Terry Egan, editor in chief of publications for The Warren Group, which tracks real-
estate transactions, agreed, pointing to the combined benefits of lower prices and lower short-term interest rates. "For
someone ready to make the leap, that's two bits of good news in terms of buying opportunity," he said.






LOWER INTEREST RATE + NO MONEY DOWN PROGRAMS +
LOWER PAYMENTS = TIME TO BUY NOW!
Every vehicle in inventory will be clearly marked with its drastically lowered price or payment. Bank representatives will
be available to assist all buyers during this very special event. Even those buyers whose credit may have been damaged in
the past will have an opportunity to take advantage of this-incredible market condition. A stable job and residence is all that
is required to begin process of any transaction.
The Jasper Tent Sale will be fully staffed March 7 16, 2008 as attendance is expected to be in record breaking numbers.
As with most special sales, the selection will diminish throughout the event'so come early to take full advantage of the en-
I% tire inventory available.

Deadly tornado formed over McAlpin

touching down and cutting a
2.5-mile path across Lake
City Friday morning.
Harvey Campbell, public
information officer for Co-
lumbia County, said that at
least 60 homes and 10 busi-
nesses suffered minor dam-
age or worse with 19 homes
destroyed. Estimated resi-
dential damage is about $2
million.
Campbell said that about
300-350 people were dislo-
cated due to the tornado that


started at 9:46 Friday morn-
ing and lasted no more than
three to four minutes. He
said that all but six or seven
of those dislocated by the
storm remain in local lodg-
ing facilities. The rest are ei-
ther staying with family
members or friends or were
able to return home.

"Early indications are see-

Due to the increase in
rainfall the District has
moved the date the mandato-
ry restrictions go into effect
to May 14. The restrictions
were set to go into effect on
April 7.
The new date "gives staff

Johnson of the District.
The water management
governing board met Tues-
day to draft final guidelines
for a water shortage order.

but has a Lake City mailing
address.
According to reports, de-
tective Neil Spector of the St.
Lucie County Sheriff's Of-
fice went undercover on Feb.
9 and met Votano in an online
chatroom.
Spector made Votano be-
lieve that he was communi-
cating with a 15-year-old girl
from Port St. Lucie.
Votano reportedly asked to
trade pictures. Spector sent a
photograph of a clothed fe-
male sheriff's deputy when
she was 15 through e-mail.
Votano then sent a portrait of
his genitals to the undercover
officer.
After several minutes of
conversation that day Spec-
tor, posing as the 15-year-old
female, asked Votano for his
phone number. Later that day
a female St. Lucie sheriff's
deputy disguised as the 15-
year-old called Votano.
Votano was told at the begin-
ning of the conversation that
he was indeed talking to a 15-


year-old female.
Later, Spector called
Votano and informed him of
the reality of the situation.
Reports state that Votano told
Spector his nephew was at
his. home and uses his screen
name, Southernman73, in
chatrooms. Votano denied
talking to Spector on the in-
ternet or the officer on the
phone. He stated his .nephew
is 15 years old. Spector in-
formed Votano he would cell
later and talk with his
nephew, according to reports.
Votano later told Spector
on the telephone that he was
still looking for his nephew.
After Spector confronted
him, Votano reportedly con-
fessed. A warrant was later is-
sued for Votano's arrest.
Votano was taken into cus-
tody and transported to the
Suwannee County Jail, where
he remains. Bond was set at
$150,000 for the lewd com-
puter solicitation of a child
and at $100,000 for the trans-
mission of material harmful
to a minor by an electronic
device.

Campbell said the tornado
touched down west of 1-75 in
Lake City near Haven Hos-
pice. The first damage from
the tornado was reported on
US 90 west at the Publix su-
permarket.
The tornado then moved to
the tobacco warehouses near
the Old Memorial Stadium
adjacent to the CSX railroad
and Railroad Street, where it
damaged several businesses
with estimated damages and
losses at $1 million.
The tornado then jumped
the tracks to the north side
and damaged homes on
Washington and Martin
Luther King streets before
moving out of the area on SR
100, where a tree fell and


crushed a mobile home
killing May Bright McCray,
62, who was pastor of Bethel
Freewill Baptist Church.
Another fatality first
thought to be storm related
turned out to be the result of
a heart attack. Irma Longe-
necker, 66, suffered a heart
attack after trying to start a
generator when the power
went out.
At least five people were
hurt and treated at Lake City
hospitals, officials said. At
least 11 suffered minor in-
juries.
Florida Power and Light
spokeswoman Sarah
Marmion said that about
8,600 Columbia County cus-
tomers were without power
after the storm. Power was
restored by Sunday evening


except those whose homes
suffered structural damage.
Campbell said Tuesday
that a representative of the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency was on the
ground in Lake City estimat-
ing damage. As of Tuesday
no determination had been
made on whether FEMA will
give aid.
Florida Power and Light
reported that 4,900 cus-
tomers were affected in
Suwannee County due to the
tornado but that the power
outage was brief.
"We were able to divert
and isolate the problem,"
said Marmion.
Kimberly Thomas, assis-
tant director of emergency
management here, said
Suwannee County reported


no road closings due to the
rain.
One tree was reported to
have fallen on a car in the
Scaff's Grocery parking lot
in Branford. Penny-sized
hail was reported north of
Luraville and lightning
struck the old KFC building
on US 129 North. No in-
juries or damage were re-
ported.
Suwannee County sher-
iff's deputies were in Lake
City Friday assisting with
traffic and road closures, ac-
cording to Campbell.
Saturday saw no storms
but lots of wind. The Nation-
al Weather Service recorded
the wind speed at a maxi-
mum of 36.56 miles per hour
with an average of 12.36
miles per hour.


Stansel announces for Tax Collector


Continued From Page 1A

Stansel was raised on what
is today a fifth generation
family farm by his parents,
Bobby and Maudell Stansel.
Four generations are currently
living on the farm.
Stansel attended public
school at Wellborn and Live
Oak, graduating from Suwan-
nee High School. Stansel and
his wife, formerly Glenda Av-
ery of McAlpin, have been
married 40 years and .have
two children, Erwin (ITylyn)
and Carmon (Todd) Frier and
have two grandchildren. He
and Glenda attend Mr. Beulah
Baptist Church.
"I have been involved in
agriculture all my life, but
have had the opportunity to
do many other things in con-
junction with operating our
farm," said Stansel. "Our
farm currently produces
hatching eggs, peanuts and
pine and hardwood seedlings
for reforestation. I previously
owned and operated an avia-


tion business and a crop
spraying, service at the
Suwannee County Airport for
15 years that provided ser-
vices to Suwannee County, as
well as the North Florida area.
I have served our community
in several positions including
the Farm Service Agency and
as a Suwannee Valley Electric
Cooperative, Inc. trustee."
In 1998 Stansel was elected
to the Florida House of Rep-
resentatives and subsequently
re-elected, serving a total of
eight years. He was forced to
retire in November of 2006
due to term limits.
'This was a great honor
and an unbelievable opportu-
nity to learn about the legisla-
tive process, about our great
state and about the diversity
of Florida," Stansel said of his
time in the legislature. "My
family and I will always be
grateful for this opportunity. I
never expected you to always
agree with me on every issue,
because we are all different in
many ways, but the times you


disagreed with me were prob-
ably few. I represented you
with rural North Florida val-
ues and principles in the legis-
lature and will do the same as
your tax collector. I enjoyed
public service and was hum-
bled by the gratification I re-
ceived by being in a position
to help people as well, as
working for our rural counties
and cities.
"Paying taxes, buying tags,
licenses, etc., can be frustrat-
ing because you will leave
with less money than you en-
tered with, and sometimes
question what you have re-
ceived or will receive in re-
turn for giving the govern-
ment your hard earned mon-
ey," Stansel added. "As this
campaign evolves, I will un-
veil a reasonable platform for
you to consider and I will also
be receptive to your ideas and
thoughts that could be inte-
grated into the operation of
this office to better serve the
people of Suwannee County.
My desire and goal, if elected,


will be for the employees of
the tax collector's office to
enjoy their jobs and look for-
ward to coming to work each
day and for everyone who
uses the services of this office
to be able to say they were
pleased with the service pro-
vided. We will be accountable
to you, the taxpayer.
"My campaign will be
grassroots and we will in-
volve as many people as
would like to help. I also look
forward to meeting as many
of you as possible in the com-
ing months to personally ask
for your support.
"I ask that you consider
someone who is a busi-
nessperson and has served our
community in many capaci-
ties. Allow me to bring the
leadership qualities and prin-
ciples that have proven suc-
cessful from Suwannee
County to the legislature in
our State Capital to this im-
portant constitutional office
of tax collector for Suwannee
County."

Rules for March Madness


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels


The NCAA men's
basketball c rnament is
almost up6n us. H.V.
Porter, an Illinois athletic
official, coined the phrase
"March Madness" back in
1939. It originally
referred to a high school
tournament in Illinois. It
now symbolizes who is
the best college
basketball team in
America. "Mega March
S Madness" is a pay-per-
view term.
There are 31


conferences that play
NCAA basketball, and
each of their champions
get to go. Then there are
34 at-large teams. One of
the ironies is you can win
your conference then lose
your conference playoffs
* and miss the "Madness."
The exception is the Ivy

"Have you found a

money tree yet?"


What follows is the text of a speech
given by school board chairman Julie
Ulmer during recent ceremonies
dedicating the Suwannee High softball
field to the late Richard Norris.
Rick Norris was a very important part of
the Suwannee County School System for
many years. He faithfully served as
Director of Business, working hard to
tackle the financial challenges of a small
school district. Every time I saw Rick the
first thing I would ask was "Have you
found a money tree yet?"
As parents, our children have a way of
getting us passionately involved in their


activities, often doing things we might not
have ever thought we would willingly and
gladly do to make their experience a
positive one. It was Rick's love for his
daughters that brought him to be so deeply
involved in the girls' softball program at *
SHS. He served not only as a coach but
also worked very hard behind the scenes to
find that money tree for a program that
struggled with funding. He was an
instrumental part in the improvements of
this field and the addition of the portable
that serves as the field house. He even

to Florida WinterNationals


competition for launch duration and the
first hybrid launch of the event. Hybrid
rockets are propelled by solid motors
with liquid fuel oxydizers.
Highlight of the WinterNationals was
the launch of the Black Dragon, the
largest P motor class rocket in Florida.
The bright orange and black rocket
soared to 15,000 feet powered by 2,500
lbs of thrust.
According to Zimmerman the initial
cost of building a rocket can be costly,
but the rockets themselves are
reuseable, especially if they are
retrieved after a parachute landing.
The Sentinel Rocket Club, which
boasts a club membership of 60 plus,
regularly hosts rocket launches in
Madison County the third Saturday of
each month and the public is always
welcome. The next launch is Saturday,
March 16 from 10:30 a.m. until 5:30
p.m. at the Cruce Farm on Sampala
Lake Rd., off CR 14 West from
Madison.

FWC announces opening of Beau

Turner Youth Conservation Center

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
is proud to announce the grand opening of the state's first
youth hunting and fishing facility at the Beau Turner Youth
Conservation Center Saturday, March 8 in Jefferson County.
The center, located on U.S. 19 just north of U.S. 27, is the
only private/state-run facility specifically geared at
providing youths the opportunity to learn and develop
hunting and fishing skills, and teaching land stewardship and
a greater appreciation for the outdoors.
The event is free and open to children of all ages,
beginning at 10 a.m. and lasting until 3 p.m. Pre-registration


is not necessary. Activities
include fishing and casting
competitions; Olympic-style
archery; muzzleloader, shotgun
and rifle shooting; and hunting
dog and K-9 demonstrations. An
FWC law enforcement helicopter,
as well as local NFL hall-of-famer
Jack Youngblood, will also be on
hand.
Every child attending will
receive a free Shakespeare fishing
rod-and-reel combo and tackle
box (courtesy of Fish Florida), and
a longleaf pine seedling
(compliments of McElroy
Forestry, Inc.) to take home. They
also have a chance at winning
several door prizes, such as a pair
of binoculars, fishing rods and
reels, a Genesis bow, a Henry .22


The goal of the
160-acre center,
donated by
environmentally
conscious Beau
Turner, son of
television mogul
Ted Turner, is to
preserve Florida's
hunting heritage
and teach youths
how to hunt safely,
legally and
ethically.

and teach youths how to hunt safely, legally and ethically.
The property features a stocked, 36-acre pond to fish and
hunt waterfowl, a dove field, state-of-the-art rifle and
shotgun ranges, a 3-D archery course and solar-powered
skeet-shooting facilities that throw biodegradable clay
pigeons.
During the event, parents can sign up their 12- to 17-year-
old children for spring and summer classes in gun safety, .
archery, fishing, shooting and other outdoor activities. These
classes will be free, and the FWC will provide all necessary
equipment and materials.
The center also plans to hold future youth hunts on an
adjoining 900 acres through the FWC's Youth Hunting
Program of Florida.

championship you're
declared the winner. Just
because you won last year
doesn't get you in this year.
The 65th and 64th team
play a game to get to the
best 64. This is because of
the creation of the
Mountain West
Conference. The first game
is played at the University
of Dayton.
Those teams that do not


make the final 64 get an
opportunity to play in the
NIT if invited. The final 64
are placed into 4
geographic areas called
brackets. The fact that you
are in the heart of Dixie
does not preclude you from
being put in the west, east
or north bracket. The 16th
seeded team plays the
number 1 team, 2 plays 15,
etc. This is called the pod
single elimination method.
No number 16 team has
ever beaten a number 1
team. Seeding is where
your team is placed
according to your RPI


rating, record and strength
of schedule. You may not
refer to your team as a
seedling.
UCLA has won this
tournament 14 times. The
University of Florida is the
only Florida school to have
won this tournament.
Kentucky has won more
championships than any
ACC school and the most
in the SEC. This Sunday
the final 65 will be
selected., Some teams such
as Cornell and William &
Mary have already won
their conferences and are
sure to be number 16's.

'Rollin' on the river'


Continued From Page lB
amount of time. For example, it rose
almost ten feet in seven days at Branford.
In order-for that much water to come
down the pike that quick, there has to be a
pretty strong current and from what I've
been told by the numbers of folks who've
been making daily treks down to their
places on the Suwannee to raise docks,
clean debris and check on things the
water is rolling!
If you plan on boating in the Suwannee
anytime soon, I would be very cautious!
The floating logs and debris can not only
ruin a lower unit but could cause you to
lose control of your vessel. Also, keep in
mind that there are temporary NO WAKE
zones imposed in certain areas of the
Santa Fe river and there may be more
imposed if the water continues to rise. You
can monitor the river conditions by
logging onto the Suwannee River Water
Management website at www.srwmd.org.
I'm sure you might have seen one or
two wrapped boats with matching
wrapped trucks, vans or SUVs passing
through the area in the last couple of
weeks. Toanswer the question I've been
asked repetitively "yes there's a bass
tournament in Florida...several, actually."
The two biggest bass fishing tournament
trails in the nation both kick off their
season in Florida this year.
The FLW Tour opened its season two
weeks ago down at Lake Toho in


Kissimmee. You would have thought that
the tournament would have been won by
one of the many Florida anglers that
entered the tournament. Instead, the
tournament was dominated by Brett Hite,
who lives all the way out in Arizona. Go
figure? Hite actually set a new FLW
Outdoors record by outdistancing his
closest competitor by more than 20
pounds. His winning pattern consisted of
casting a Chatterbait type lure to open
"lanes" in lily pads and scattered grass in
Lake Kissimmee.
The Bassmasters Elite Series kicked off
this past week on the Harris Chain of
Lakes in Leesburg. As of this writing,
Orange Park angler Bryan Hudgins was in
second place after the first day of
competition with 21-6. Oddly, Hudgins
was the only Florida angler to crack the
top 25 after the first day. I've actually
competed against Hudgins in some BFLs
and Federation tournaments and it's kind
of weird to see him and my other friend
(and BASS record holder) Preston Clark
out their competing against the bass pros
that all of us have looked up to since we
were kids. My hat's off to Bryan and
Preston!
Most everyone thinks that fishing for a
living would be the best job in the world,
and it would be if that was all you had to
worry about just fishing. But
unfortunately, that's not the way it is. I
could go into detail, but for sake of the
remainder of the sports section I'll refrain.

service, Suwannee High has one of the

Rick's untimely passing made many of us
reflect on how much he meant not only to


this district but to us personally. He was a
man of integrity and compassion whose love
of the Lord and his family reflected in all
that he did. It was school board member
Jerry Taylor that brought forth the idea of
dedicating the softball field in Rick's
memory. The board overwhelmingly agreed.
It is a great honor to name this The

Florida father memorializes



soldier son on Harley


Rowe's 12 ribbons including the Purple Heart, Bronze Star
and Meritorious Service medals are attached to the bike on
the oil reservoir. .


THE 1977 Harley Davidson Sportster adorned with Sgt. Michael Rowe'S uniform as a memorial. Photos: Submitted


Rowe died from a tripped
mortar, which was hidden in a
drainage ditch, the day before
his 24th birthday. The gunner
traveling with Rowe saw what
appeared to be fishing line,
which was used to set off the
individual explosive device
(IED), laid across the road
approximately four seconds
before the blast.

By Tish Butts
Army Reserve Medical Command Public
Affairs

CLEARWATER, Fla. A father
adorned a 1977 Harley Davidson
Sportster with his son's uniform at the
Bike Builders Invitational in Clearwater,
Fla., as a memorial.
That son, Sgt. Michael Rowe of New
Port Richey and the 46th Engineer
Battalion, Warrior Brigade in Fort Polk,
La. died in 2006 while on convoy in
Rutbah, Iraq. His father, David, attached
the desert combat uniform (DCU) to the


bike as a dedication to his memory.
"It was always my intention for Mike
to inherit it (the bike)," said David. "It
was, I guess, spiritual when I thought,
'Well, he can't inherit it, but I can make
a memorial of it.'"
Along with the fabric of the DCU, his
name and rank lay across the front
fender. The American flag sits on the
right side of the gas tank while his unit
patch and Sapper Tab appear on the left.
According to Rowe's parents, he is one
of the few in his military occupational
specialty, Petroleum Supply Specialist
(92F), to complete the Sapper Leader
Course.
Rowe's 12 ribbons including the
Purple Heart, Bronze Star and
Meritorious Service medals are attached
to the bike on the oil reservoir. His
Combat Action Badge and Expert
Marksmanship Badge are located above
and below his ribbons.
David said he decided to create the
memorial about six months after his son
died while supporting Operation Iraqi
Freedom.
Despite the clear-coating of the
uniform and molding the bike's fender to
fit the newly fashioned material, David
was able to maintain the integrity of the
uniform. "I didn't cut the
fabric only the thread,"
iddenberry he said'through tear-
S eialist glazed eyes.
4 "A lot of love went into
that bike," Marcy, Rowe's
mother, echoed as she
stared into the distance.


Rowe deployed to Iraq in h
November 2005 and died Rowe died
from a tripped mortar, which
was hidden in a drainage
ditch, the following year on March 28 -
the day before his 24th birthday.
The gunner traveling with Rowe saw
what appeared to be fishing line, which
was used to set off the individual
explosive device (IED), laid across the
road approximately four seconds before
the b5ast:- -
His team received a briefing about that
particular IED for the first time that
morning, and Rowe was the only
passenger who sustained fatal injuries,
Marcy said.
The soldier's untimely death left
Rebecca, his wife of two years, without a
, husband and his daughter Nevaeh, whom
' he had never met, without a father.
Rebecca was six months pregnant at the
time.
David said that although Nevaeh
(Heaven spelled backward), 18 months,
never saw her father on the Harley, she
jumps on the bike for a ride each time
she sees it.
"She loves to sit on the bike with it
running and say, 'Vroom, vroom,'" said
Marcy. "When I look at her, I sometimes
see him looking back at me."
Rowe's daughter is a happy free spirit
who inherited his adventurous and caring
nature.
"He was always cheerful and
optimistic," said Marcy. "When he was
in iraq, and he would see someone
feeling down, he would do whatever he


the day before his 24th birthday.


could to cheer them up. They would say,
'Sarg., the munchkin bit me again.'"
Rowe's height of five feet five inches
earned him the nickname "Munchkin"
among his fellow soldiers.
According to his mom, thb young
sergeant not only pushed his fellow
soldiers to excellence in any situation, he
did everything "full throttle" in his own
life.
Ironically, Full Throttle magazine
featured Rowe's story and the bike
baring his name and uniform in the
January 2008 issue.
Writer of the article, the "Rev'rand"
Jim Goodrich, invited David and Marcy
to the Bike Builders Invitational after
having seen the motorcycle at New Port
Richey Bikefest 2007. The invitational is
a display of 42 motorcycles from all over
Rowe's home state of Florida.
"Just looking at the bike was
inspirational," said Goodrich.
The Harley has a standing invitation to
any bike show organized by Goodrich
since David uses the bike to keep his
son's memory alive.
"You can't ask for a better person than
that," said Goodrich.
Although the motorcycle has won
"Judge's Choice" along with other
trophies, David does not showy the bike
for competition, but to make people
aware of how the war is affecting the
families of soldiers and to remind
Americans that "freedom isn't free."


"She loves to sit on the bike with it running and say, 'Vroom, vroom,'" said Marcy "When I
look at her, I sometimes see him looking back at me."
Rowe's daughter is a happy) free spirit who inherited his adventurous and caring nature.

Fun a factor for children's dental care


Keeping up with a kid is no easy feat. Most parents know that a
child is a bundle of energy with an attention span that lasts mere
minutes if you're lucky! So when it comes to teaching children
the lessons of being an independent person such as personal
grooming habits there are distinct challenges. But with a little
patience and a dash of fun, no task is insurmountable.
More Cavities in Young Kids Means Better Brushing Needed
There is growing evidence that children's dental health is an area
on which most families need to focus more attention. Dentists say
they are treating more and more young patients who have cavities
in their primary teeth. A new Center for Disease Control and
Prevention study reports that almost a third of all kids between 2
and 5 have cavities in their baby teeth. Experts attribute the trend
to several factors, including an upsurge in sugared snacks, juice
and soda consumption, the rising use of bottled, non-fluoridated
water, and the fact that children simply don't spend enough time
brushing teeth.
Many people are under the assumption that oral hygiene is not
something that really needs to be worried about in young kids.
After all, baby teeth will eventually fall out and new teeth will
grow in their place. But this is far from the case. The American
Dental Association (ADA) says that cavities in baby teeth can
cause a number of problems, including tooth loss, ear and speech
problems, crooked permanent teeth, severe pain, poor self-image,
and tooth decay. That's why the ADA recommends starting
children's dental care when they are still babies. A dentist's visit
should occur by age 1. Brushing should begin at age 2 and be
supervised until a child is 6 or 7.
Beating Brushing Blues
The recommended brushing time to get teeth clean is a minute
for the top arch of teeth and a minute for the bottom. So how does
a parent get their child to cooperate? Make it fun, says Dr. Fresh,
the maker of the FireFly, a bright and sparkly children's
toothbrush that lights up and flashes.
The FireFly toothbrush was developed when Dr. Fresh (yes, he
is a real person) could not get his young daughter to brush for long
enough. To inspire "psychological compliance," he basically took
the LCD light out of a pair of fancy sneakers and put it in the
bottom of a regular toothbrush. With more research and
development, he created the FireFly, which uses the same
"blinking technology" in a durable, ergonomically-designed
toothbrush for kids.
"Most of us underestimate how long a minute really is," says Dr.
Fresh. And a minute can seem interminable for an active child
looking to move on to his or her next activity.
The FireFly, which blinks for 60 seconds, is a way to instill the
one-minute each arch brushing routine. Have children press the


Make it fun and kids will follow. Brushing gets a boost from a toothbrush with a
blinking light that tells kids how long to polish those pearly whites.
button to start the LCD light housed safely in the handle of the
toothbrush. Once the light stops blinking, it's time to move onto the
other row of teeth. Push the button again to activate the light.
Other Dental Tips
But oral care doesn't end with brushing alone. Dr. Fresh offers
additional advice.
Forgetting floss? Children should also floss regularly as early
as when they have two front teeth erupted, say experts. Flossing is
really important for molars because they are generally closer to
each other than the front teeth. Again, until they reach the age of 6,
you will have to help them. Gently lift the floss up between teeth
towards the gum and all the way through to the inside of the mouth.
Don't saw that can damage fragile young gum tissue.
Time for a change: Everyone adults and children should
replace a toothbrush after three months of use. If a child has
recently had a virus or infection (like strep throat), change the
toothbrush immediately after he or she gets better to avoid re-
infection.
Fun flavor: There are a variety of toothpaste flavors available to
appeal to kids who don't'enjoy the plain minty variety most adults
use. And with cartoon characters adorning the packaging, your
child may be racing to add a dab of paste to his or her FireFly and
get brushing.
The best way to impart lessons of oral care is to show by example.
Make it fun and educational for children and they'll be more
inclined to follow along.

fun products, visit www.drfresh.com.

Take Advantage of

Higher IRA

Contribution Limits
If one of your New Year's resolutions is to boost your retirement
savings, you can count on some extra help from your Uncle Sam. That's
because you'll be able to contribute more to your IRA in 2008. This is a
great opportunity for you so you'll want to make the most of it.
Here are the details: The contribution limit for both Traditional and
Roth IRAs will increase from $4,000 per year in 2007 to $5,000 per
year in 2008. And if you're 50 or over, the annual limit will rise from
$5,000 to $6,000. (Keep in mind, though, that your ability to contribute
to a Roth IRA may be limited by your income; see your tax advisor for
more details.)
Of course, if you weren't putting in the maximum amount to your IRA
in 2007, you might think there's even less of a chance that you'll fully
fund your IRA in 2008. And it's certainly true that $5,000 or $6,000 is a
considerable sum especially if you try to pay it all at once. But you
don't have to do that. While it might be to your advantage to fully fund
your IRA early every year you'd be giving your money more time to
potentially grow you can make smaller contributions throughout the
year. In fact, you've actually got until the tax filing deadline of each
year to fund your IRA for that year. So, if you chose, you could spread
your 2008 IRA payments over 15 months 12 months in 2008, and the
first three months of 2009. That means you could put in $333.33 per
month, if you're under 50, or $400 per month, if you're 50 or older.
Even those amounts might pose a challenge to your cash flow, but you
need to consider just how important it is to save for retirement. Many
financial experts say that you will need between 80 percent and 100
percent of your pre-retirement income just to maintain your lifestyle -
and if you plan on traveling extensively, purchasing a vacation home or
incurring other significant expenses during your retirement years, you
may need even more money. That means you'll have to rely on all your
available resources your Social Security, your 401(k) or pension and
your other savings and investments, of which an IRA can be a
significant part.
And an IRA is one of the best retirement savings vehicles around. A
traditional IRA has the potential to grow on a tax-deferred basis, which
means your earnings can potentially grow faster than they would on an
investment on which you paid taxes every year. And a Roth IRA's
earnings have the potential to grow totally tax-free, provided you don't
take withdrawals until you reach age 59-1/2 and you've had your
account for at least five years. Furthermore, you can fund either type of
IRA with virtually any security you.choose stocks, bonds, Certificates
of Deposit (CD), Treasury bills, etc. Depending on your income level,
you might even be able to deduct some, or all, of your Traditional IRA
contributions from your taxes. (Roth IRA contributions are never tax
deductible.)
As. you can see, you'll be helping yourself greatly if you contribute the
maximum amount to your IRA in 2008 and all the years beyond.

--^ 'SOME PEOPLE

ARE SHOCKED


FIND WHEN



THEY DIG IN

THEIRYARDS.

It's that time of year when people begin poking all kinds of holes in the ground. New trees,
shrubs, fence posts, mail boxes; you name it. All require some digging, and a hole from a foot
to several feet deep. The problem these days is that you don't really know what you are going
to dig into. It may only be a few earthworms or the ball point pen you lost a few years ago. On
the other hand, it could be a buried utility line. Like 220 volts of electricity. Or you may chop
right into the cable TV line just -in time for your favorite program. All of which would be
unpleasant. And some of which could be downright dangerous. So, call your local utility
before you start to dig. They'll help you avoid the shocks.

history of the area through photo-
graphs. Another stop along the
way was to Bottom's Road in the
St. Marks Wildlife Refuge. There
the group collected shells and
watched birds feed.
"It was a beautiful spot," said
Norma McKee, one of the partici-
pants who also took photos dur-
ing the day.
Norma mounts her trip photos
onto placemats with captions as a
way to remember all her travels.
. At the WWII museum the group
traveled back in time, viewing
war memorabilia -- guns, uni-
forms, photographs.
"It brought back memories,"
Norma's sister, Marion said.
Marion was in high school dur-
ing the war. She remembers the


boys in her class getting drafted
to serve in .the war.
"The fellows kept leaving the
school. The classes got smaller,"
she said.
At the museum participants
viewed WWII memorabilia and
even got to see a replica of sol-
diers' living conditions. In one
photo taken at the museum
Marion pointed out a picture of
actress Betty Grable -- who was
popular in the 40s -- that hung on
the wall near a soldier's bunk bed.
The museum also displayed old
newspapers announcing president
Franklin Roosevelt's death and
when Japanese and the Germans
surrendered.
Norma remembers finding out
about Roosevelt's death after her

It's all about the medal!


ByACV Staff
Members of the Advent Christian Village staff, along
with friends and family, made there way to Orlando this
past January to participate in the 2008 Walt Disney
World Marathon weekend. The celebration kicked off
with Disney's 5-K Fun Run on Friday, which opened
the festivities. Laramie Ohms ran this 3.1-mile event,
which stretched throughout the Animal Kingdom
Theme Park. She. completed the course and collected
her Disney Medal and T-shirt, having a great time that
she will long remember.
The next morning while most of us were sleeping in,
nearly 16,500 runners had gathered before the crack of
dawn. Packed shoulder to shoulder and heel to toe, they
waited to begin the Disney Half-Marathon.
The moment these runners had trained for was final-
ly here: Many had been here before and were well
aware of the stress and strain they were about to put on
their bodies. Others were faced with mixed emotions,
nervousness, doubt and excitement, all rolled into one.
The 13.1-mile course would take these runners from
Epcot to the Magic Kingdom, including a run through
the center of Cinderella's. Castle. A variety of Disney
characters were seen along the way. At every mile there
were water stations for the runners and high school
bands played to rally the spectators and help cheer the
runners toward the finish line.
'Director of Medical Services, Dr. Nasseer Masoodi
finished the half Marathon in less than two hours, which
is a very impressive accomplishment. Masoodi has run
this race for the past three years and this was his best
time ever.
Being a physician, he is very dedicated to his exercise
program, he eats right, works out and runs on a regular
basis. He also recently competed in -a 5-K race and
brought home a second place trophy.
When asked about his Disney adventure Nasseer said,
"It was a really fun and enjoyable experience! It was
interesting to be able to run through areas of Disney you-
normally would not see on a regular vacation visit."
Social Service's D'Arcy Chapman had hoped to run
the half Marathon this year with all of his three sons.
That will have to wait. His younger son, Andrew was
signed up to run, but work obligations kept him away,
however Andrew's wife Kelly represented them both
and ran a super fast race. In 2006 D'Arcy collected his
first medal at Disney, as wife Robbin and middle son
Kevin cheered him on.
His oldest son Stephen ran this year. "It was a great
time!" Stephen said. "Looking back, I 'should have
trained harder, but it was special running with my Dad,
so that was a great motivator!"
Stephen isn't sure about next year since he and his


wife Ali are expecting their first child in March.
Other Disney runners this year were Matt Grillo, Will
Posey, Rich Corley and Copeland Center Director,
David Burch.
"I will definitely do it again next year, and include my
whole family!" Burch stated. "It is an absolutely awe-
some experience!" This was Burch's second year in the
Disney Marathon and admits he too might have trained
harder. "As we get a little older we need to modify the
way we train. The things we did 20 years ago won't give
us the same results today!" Burch said.
Matt Grillo did well in his first half-marathon this
year. He works-out on a regular basis. He had a great
time at Disney, hanging out with his Dad and the
Chapmans. Later that weekend Matt left from Orlando
to catch a flight to Honduras, to help with ACV's mis-
sion work there.

It's all about the medal!


continued from page 9

Early Sunday morning, before the sun was even up, 18,000 enthusiastic runners
laced up their shoes and headed for the starting line. Runners from all over the world
came for this 15th annual Disney Marathon.
The course meanders its way through all four theme parks. It begins at Epcot, then
on to the Magic Kingdom, the Animal Kingdom, MGM Studios and back to Epcot.
Little did many of them know that friends and family were glued to their comput-
er screens monitoring the day's events, thanks to the technology of the Champion-
Chip.
Since 1994, runners have been attaching these small high tech devices to their
shoes. It is the best way to keep track of the runner's time and it allows spectators to
follow their favorite runner through the race.
The chip is activated (and chirps) as the runner passes over the starting line. It trans-
mits each runner's identification signal to the Timing Computer. As the runner pass-
es by various check points, it records their time.
"I was shocked to learn how many people had followed our progress on their home
computers" Burch said.
Rich Corley PA-C, has been a runner since high school and also ran cross-country
in college. He caught the marathon bug from his brother Chuck.
"I remefiber standing on the sidelines cheering him through his first marathon in
Washington D.C, I was impressed with the Marine Corp medal that he got after the
race, and decided that someday I'd get one too".
He did in 1998 and since then has entered dozens of other races and collected a col-
orful assortment of running shirts, which his mother made into a quilt, that he treas-
ures.
"Collecting these shirts is fun, because each one reminds me of a particular time
and place in my life, but as cool as they are, I like the medals a little more".
"Running is a good stress reliever. You can exercise your legs and untangle your
thoughts on a long stretch of road. The first mile can be tough for any runner, even
the seasoned ones, but after awhile you find your rhythm and settle in. I don't run as
fast these days as I used to, but that's ok. It's just about doing your best and some days
are better than others. Races should be a reward for all the effort it took preparing for
the event. That's why everyone who crosses the finish line gets a medal." The Goofy
Challenge is unique because if you complete it, you get three different shirts and three
different medals. A Donald Duck Medal for the Half-Marathon, a Mickey Medal for
the Marathon and a Goofy Medal for doing both races.
Corley's experience in Orlando was made even more memorable this year when his
younger brother John, on leave from the Army, flew in from Belgium to run with him.
"We have developed a system to better our times each year, our main goal is to con-
tinuously improve. I was able to run the marathon 30 minutes faster this year than last
year."
When asked if they have any other race plans for the future, they said the New York
City Marathon sounds exciting. The NYC Marathon, is one of the largest. It takes its
runners through the streets of New York's five boroughs: Staten Island, Brooklyn,
Queens, the Bronx and Manhattan. It passes over 5 bridges, finishing up in Central
Park. Since its humble beginnings in 1970, running enthusiasts continue to be lured
.from all comers of the globe to participate, while spectators line the streets by the mil-
lions to watch the event every November.
For now, Rich Corley, Dr. Masoodi and Kelly Chapman are signed up for the 15-
K Gate Run in Jacksonville this March. This 9.3-mile run attracts over 30,000 com-
petitors and is an excellent way for these local runners to stay" in. condition.
If we can learn anything from these dedicated medal hunters, it's that hard work and


sacrifice really does pay off. It is important that we try our best to stay in good con-
dition, both physically and mentally. It doesn't matter what shape your in, it is more
important that we get up, get moving and take our day to day challenges, one step at
a time.

In the market for a new
car but don't know where to
start? Don't worry, your
friends from the Federal
Trade Commission and the
Federal Citizen Information
Center can help. They've put
together a handy package of
publications with all the ins
and outs of getting a good
deal on your new ride.
First, calculate how much
car you can afford. If you're
financing or leasing your
new vehicle, use the
Monthly Spending Plan to
figure out an affordable
payment. Next, think about
what type of car you would
like. Do you want a coupe,
sedan, truck, or SUV? Or
what about a hybrid? Should
it be manual or automatic?
As you're researching the
different makes and models,
also consider any options
that you might want such as
trim, alloy wheels, or a
moonroof.
After you've decided on
your dream ride, shop
around or new car prices and
features using auto buying
guides, the Internet, and
other sources. Negotiate
with the dealer about
lowering their profit margin,
which is usually 10 to 20
percent of the MSRP. Once
you're at the dealership, it's
important that you stay
within the price range you
can afford and that you
understand the value and
cost of optional products
such as an extended service
contract.
If you plan on financing
your new car, you'll want to
check your credit report
first. Errors or inaccurate
information may affect the
finance rate you're able to
obtain. Next, compare
annual percentage rates
(APRs) and financing terms
from multiple finance
sources such as a bank,
finance company, credit
union, or car dealer. Be
aware that if you choose to
finance your car, the lender
keeps the vehicle's title until
you've paid the contract in
full. And remember to read
the contract carefully. Once
you sign, you're obligated to
the terms.
Make buying your new
car a breeze by sending for
the New Ride package.
There are three easy ways to


k"Ae


get your package of
publications:

and a check or money order
for $2 to New Ride, Pueblo,
