Shenandoah ruling upheld

Court affirms county's decision on dairy expansion


By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com
A Live Oak couple has lost its appeal of
a county commission decision to allow a
local dairy to expand its operations. Third
Circuit Judge David Fina issued his ruling
Wednesday.


For more on the history of the dispute
between Shenandoah Dairy and its
neighbors, see our archives. Go to
www.suwanneedemocrat.com and
search for "Shenandoah."


The county commission granted a permit
in May 2007 to Shenandoah Dairy in north-
western Suwannee County to construct ad-
ditional barns, despite objections by a num-
ber of residents who appeared before the
board to complain of odors produced by the
operation and to express environmental
concerns.
Some at the hearing said they wouldn't
complain had the dairy been there first. It's
the dairy's expansion in recent years that
they objected to, they said. Residents who
bought laid some distance from the dairy
several years ago now find themselves next
door to Shenandoah property. The dairy be-
gan in 1987 with 100 cows on 160 acres,


Union, school board remain


at odds over retiree benefits


By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com
A 12-hour negotiating session on
March 27 led to agreement on 10
items previously dividing bargaining
teams for the Suwannee County
School Board and the United Teach-
ers of Suwannee County. Five items,
including a particularly contentious


issue concerning insurance benefits
for retirees, hangs in the balance.
These items will be addressed at a
hearing set for April 29-30 before a
special magistrate.
Retired employees currently re-
ceive insurance benefits at the same
cost as current employees. The school
board shares the cost of health cover-
age for instructional and nqn-instruc-

or more years of service, with at least
20 years of service in Suwannee

Sarah Luther, now 16, remembers being involved at the fair with her big brother (Keith) and
sister (Amy) when she was 3 and showing dairy calves as a Pee-wee showman. She joined 4-H
at 5 as a Cloverbud. Currently she is a member of Farm Fresh 4-H Club, a "fun club which is
always doing something," thanks to club leaders Tammy Henderson and Kathy Jerkins.


It's fair time in Suwannee County!


By Mary Sowerbv
Regional Dairy Extension

The long-awaited Suwannee County
Fair brings out the best of youth projects
(4-H and FFA), adult handicrafts and
displays, vendor wares and foods, and, of
course, the midway with its rides and
games to provide fun. It's a great place for
neighbors to meet and socialize.
Amongst the hubbub of fair activities
this week, you will find 180 youth with
their hogs; 46 youth showing steers, 28
youth showing beef heifers, 9 exhibiting
chickens, 14 exhibiting rabbits, 32
showing dairy goats, and 15 showing
dairy cattle. It is a rollercoaster of
excitement during preparations, and when
judges make their final decisions.
Character is built both from winning and
losing. The true winners are those with
the most sportsmanship, who take what
they learn this year to do better next.
Two of Suwannee County's stand-out
youth, who have been going through this
character building process at Suwannee
County Fair for the past several years, are
Sarah Luther from McAlpin and Philip
Horvath from Live Oak.


Sarah, now 16, remembers being
involved, at the fair with her big brother
(Keith) and sister (Amy) when she was 3
and showing dairy calves as a Pee-wee
showman. She joined 4-H at 5 as a
Cloverbud. Currently she is a member of
Farm Fresh 4-H Club, a "fun club which
is always doing something," thanks to.
club leaders Tammy Henderson and
Kathy Jerkins.
Sarah has had a dairy project as long as
she has been in 4-H. She has shown
every dairy cattle breed except Milking
Shorthorns, not just in Suwannee County,
but usually at the Clay County Fair; in,
Tallahassee at the North Florida Fair; in
Perry, at the Georgia National Dairy
Show; Kissimmee at the Florida State 4-H
Dairy Show; and Tampa at the Florida
State Fair. When her heifers have calved,
Sarah has taken on the responsibility of
milking them twice a day. She currently
has two cows and ten heifers.
Through her 4-H dairy project, Sarah
had the opportunity to attend National 4-
H Dairy Conference last October in
Madison, Wisconsin. Did she like the
experience? "Yeah, it was great!" she
said. She had the opportunity to attend


World Dairy Expo, visit ABS Global (a
bull stud), meet lots of people from all
over the country, and sit at the head table
as Mistress of Ceremony at one of the
banquets.
Last month, at the Florida State Fair,
Sarah finished third in the Dairy
Skillathon competition (winning a $500
savings bond) which gave her the
opportunity to compete in the overall
Champion of Champions competition
against the top four youth in the swine,
beef steer, beef heifer, dairy goat, rabbit,
chicken and sheep projects. Overall,
again Sarah placed third, winning a
$2,000 savings bond. From this, Sarah
was asked and accepted to become a
Florida State Fair Ambassador in the
coming year at various State 4-H and FFA
events.
In addition, and maybe more
importantly, Sarah received the 2008 Bill
Carey Dairy Sportsmanship Award, given
to the dairy project youth best


exemplifying sportsmanship in
competition, leadership and congeniality
with other exhibitors, show staff and fair
goers. Sarah is always willing to help
other 4-Hers with their projects and win
or lose she is a good sport in the show
ring.
Like Sarah, Philip Horvath, 17,
followed his older sibling, Victoria, into
4-H. At 8 he joined the Live Oak
Learners, whose leaders are Beth Kerr

was collecting insects for
entomology. He has also had projects
in hogs, marine biology and space,
but his real love has become his beef

Rabid Squirrels come out on top in Envirothon


Submitted
For six of the last seven years, Branford
High School students, under the guidance
of Katrina Raulerson, have won the
Suwannee Regional Envirothon. On
March 6, the Rabid Squirrels did it again,
besting the second place team, the APES.
(Advanced Placement Environmental
Sciences) of Suwannee High, by 45 points
and the third place team, Dharma, also of
SHS, by 48 points.
Sixteen teams representing Columbia,
Levy, Madison, Union and Suwannee
counties competed on the campus of Lake
City Community College.
The Florida Envirothon is an annual
competition in which winning regional
teams compete for recognition and prizes
by demonstrating their knowledge of
environmental science and natural
resource management. The teams, each
consisting of five high school-aged
students, exercise their training and
problem-solving skills in a competition
centered on four universal testing


categories (soils/land use, aquatic ecology,
forestry and wildlife) and a current
environmental issue (Recreational Impacts
on Natural Resources was this year's
topic).
During this time of tight budgets for our
schools, we truly appreciate our sponsors
for supporting this very important and
innovative environmental education
program outside the regular classroom
setting: Lake City Community College;
Florida Departments of Agriculture,
Forestry, Fish & Wildlife Commission;
Rural Development Area 3 Office;
Suwannee River Water Management;
Current Problems, Inc.; the Natural
Resources Conservation Service
(NRCS/USDA) and the Soil & Water
Districts of Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist,
Levy, Madison, Union and Suwannee
counties.

Want to vent?

Our hotline is open 24/7.

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

What once was a peaceful refuge has become an obstacle
course. Our local library has its own afternoon welcome
committee. Fifteen to 20 kids trying, it seems, to run us over
with skateboards, chasing each other, not caring who they
might hit. I am especially concerned for our elderly and our
young children. To enter, we walk through foul language,
disrespect, clouds of smoke, making out (no exaggeration).
The "occasional" appearance of LOPD is laughable. Kids
just watch for their taillights to turn the corner. Parents, do
you know or even care what your child is "innocently" do-
ing at the library or who they are with? The library staff ex-
cellently serves the public, but are not staffed to monitor the
afternoon mob. Parents, this is not a playground . your
teens need to go home unless they are studying, otherwise,
they are going to hurt someone sooner or later.

Mayor Nobles' article in the Democrat last week about his
situation, about his equipment doings, stunk. I think really
he owes the people of the city of Live Oak an explanation of
what's going on down there and what's going on at city hall,
by having an answering open party where people ask ques-
tions. If he's scared to answer them, what's he got to hide?
If it takes a grand jury to open up, that's what it takes. Let it
be.

I would like some investigation done on the fairgrounds at
the pig barn because the parents and handicapped grandpar-
ents cannot even get in the barn to watch their children and
grandchildren show their hogs and cows. Could you please
check out to see if it can't be moved to the arena or possibly
build a larger barn?

In response to a Rant & Rave article in the paper about the
NAACP running the county in lieu of the county commis-
sioners. That is not correct. The county commissioners do
run the county, but the county commissioners have to obey
the law just like anybody else has to obey the law. The coun-
ty commissioners are not above the law. And the court order
was very simple that all voting in Suwannee County shall
be by single member district. That takes precedence over
Florida statue or anything else. County commissioners must
obey the law too.

This trouble we're having with the city utility company.
contracted with the city of Live Oak, OMI, not wanting to
share the report they found on this dumping and all with city
officials. I think Mayor Nobles is responsible for that and I
think they should convene a grand jury and look into this
thing. And if they need to indict somebody, start indicting
and get to the bottom of this thing for the people of Live Oak.

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

Small businesses facing summertime blues


By Todd Stottlemyer
Summertime, and the livin' is
easy. Or so the song.goes. But not
this summer for many small busi-
ness owners.
Entrepreneurs who own and op-
erate seasonal businesses across
the country are in near-panic
mode because of Congress' failure Stottlemyer
to act on the little-known H-2B
program. H-2B visas allow thousands of legal work-
ers to come to this country, on a temporary basis, to
fill jobs for which no American workers are avail-
able.
These international workers allow seasonal, non-
agricultural small businesses to find enough employ-
ees to run their businesses at peak capacity. Business
owners must first prove that they have made an ex-
tensive 60-day effort to hire American workers, and
have that effort certified by state employment agen-
cies before they can apply to the program. Those ap-
plications can't be submitted sooner than three
months before the workers are needed.
And therein lies the problem for businesses such
as landscaping companies, fishing and other water
sports-oriented businesses, hotels and motels, the
foodservice industry and many others. And anything
that harms prospects for these businesses will affect
their suppliers, vendors and others, creating a ripple
effect throughout the one segment of the American
economy that is creating new jobs.
Congress capped the H-2B program at 66,000
workers a year. That quota was reached on Jan. 2 -
months before any summer-oriented business could
qualify and apply for the program. They've been
frozen out by the cap.
Now, these business owners are frantically trying
to fill the need that looms ever larger as the weather
gets warmer.
For example, East coast seafood processors can't
find enough workers now to clean and pack fish or
shuck oysters, and are wondering where they'll find
crab pickers for the season that opened this month. A


Midwest landscaper will need 140 workers, and
doesn't know how he'll fill all those jobs.
From out West, a stone quarry owner writes, "We
are family-owned and have been in business for 118
years and five generations. We depend upon these H-
2B workers for much of our seasonal operations.
They remove stone from our quarries by hand with
hammers, bars and wedges. In the last 10 years, we
have had only three people apply for these quarry
jobs that we are required to advertise for in the H-2B
program."
In the past, Congress has passed an exemption to
the 66,000-worker cap, allowing as many as 51,000
additional workers to come here, This exemption al-
lowed international workers who had worked here in
one of the previous three years, and wished to do so
again, to come and not be counted toward the cap.
But not this year. Congress has failed to pass an
exemption to the cap and extend to those earlier in-
ternational workers the same privilege to return and
work at the small, seasonal business where and this
is key to business owners they've already been
trained.
Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland and U.S.
Reps. Bart Stupak of Michigan and Thelma Drake of
Virginia have championed legislation that. would pro-
vide cap relief and ease the pending worker shortage.
Seasonal small business owners, as well as their cus-
tomers, should contact their senators and representa-
tives and urge them to support this legislation.
Otherwise, we risk watching the summer sunrise
on many businesses' darkened doors.
Todd Stottlemyer is president and CEO of the Na-
tional Federation of Independent Business in Wash-
ington, D.C.

Croft announces candidacy for sheriff


Continued From Page 1A

best educated, fair and
honest choice as their next
sheriff, offering new, ef-
fective, accessible leader-
ship.
Croft's campaign is cen-
tered on promoting com-
munity interaction with
the sheriff's office. On
community service, Croft
said, "It is the citizens of
our community who de-
fine and deserve quality
service. I understand that
every contact between a
citizen and any member of
the Suwannee County
Sheriff's Office is where
community opinion is
formed and community
service begins. I know that
service must be our busi-
ness. I will constantly be
in a learning mode and
will make changes, as nec-
essary, to improve the
sheriff's office in service
to you. By earning the
trust of our community,
the Suwannee County
Sheriff's Office will
achieve the reputation as a
premier law enforcement
agency."
For the past 23 years
Croft has served the coun-
ty and the community as a
soldier and a law enforce-
ment officer. After gradua-
tion from Suwannee High
School in 1985, he enlisted
in the United States Army
and trained as an armor
crewman. Upon comple-
tion of his training, he was
stationed at Fort Knox,
Kentucky where he was a
member of the base's Anti-
Terrorist Hostage Order
responsible for defense of
Fort Knox, and the Gold
Vault, in the event of ter-
rorist or other attacks. He
also saw service in the Re-
public of Korea as a tank
gunner with the 2nd In-
fantry Division. After
completing his active duty,


Croft returned to Live Oak
and joined.the 269th Engi-
neering Company of the
Florida National Guard.
During his service in the
269th, Croft was sent to
Saudi Arabia during Oper-
ation Desert Storm. He
also helped provide relief
efforts to South Florida
residents following Hurri-
cane Andrew. Croft attend-
ed Lake City Community
College where he attained
his law enforcement certi-
fication as well as certifi-
cation as a corrections of-
ficer. He has continued his'
professional education and
development, and remains
current with his certifica-
tions. Croft continually
seeks the latest informa-
tion in law enforcement
and corrections operations
and practices.
Croft is married to the
former Shannon Kelly, and
together they are the par-
ents of three children: their
son, Curt, a 16-year-old
sophomore in high school,
their daughter Kara, a 7-
year-old in second grade
and their 2-year-old
daughter, Lara. Croft is the
son of Larry and Mary Jo
Croft of Live Oak, owners
of the Sweet Shop in Live
Oak for many years.
Croft's grandfather, Henry
Croft, owned and operated
Suwannee Packing Com-
-pany in Live Oak for more
than 50 years.
Croft served the Suwan-
nee County Sheriff's Of-
fice for 15 years, most re-
cently as lieutenant and as-
sistant administrator.
During his tenure with
the Suwannee County
Sheriff's Office, he was
training officer, accredita-
tion manager, taser in-
structor, team leader for
the special response team
in the jail and firearms in-
structor for the corrections
division and the sheriff's


posse.
He further served the
Suwannee County Sher-
iff's Office as internal af-
fairs investigator, chair-
man of the policy and pro-
cedures review committee
and chairman of the ac-
creditation committee.
Croft's law enforcement
experience includes spe-
cial details with the patrol
division, the Florida Divi-
sion of Alcoholic Bever-
ages and Tobacco and law
enforcement services dur-
ing special events.
Some of Croft's plans
include improving the
Neighborhood Watch pro-
gram, enhancing drug pre-
vention and other pro-
grams for our children, ed-
ucating our elderly citi-
zens about elder abuse and
providing advanced train-
ing to all employees of the
sheriff's office. Croft says
he will actively work to
create greater cooperation
among all the agencies in
the criminal justice sys-
tem. Along those lines,
Croft believes the commu-
nity can continue to im-
prove by staying involved
and in touch with local law
enforcement. "The Suwan-
nee County Sheriff's Of-
fice should be community-
service oriented, where
everyone in the communi-
ty is respected, represent-
ed and served," Croft stat-
ed. '
Croft, a 17-year veteran
in law enforcement, is run-
ning as a Republican, and
is seeking support from all.
Democrats, Independents
and voters in our county,
including officers and em-
ployees of the Suwannee
County Sheriff's Office.
Croft plans to campaign
vigorously for the position
of Sheriff of Suwannee
County. He looks forward
to meeting as many of the
voters as possible.

for those who have en-
tered the district's drop
program. Under the pro-
posal retirees would pay
the full premium.
Union negotiators want
the school board to con-,
tinue contributing to re-
tirees' health insurance.
District officials maintain
the district needs to con-
serve its spending in light


of possible impending
budget cuts.
The teams went to im-
passe over the issue earli-
er this year. A mediator
was assigned in February
to help the teams reach an
agreement but was unsuc-
cessful at resolving the
matter.
If either or both parties
reject the special magis-
trate's recommendation
the matter will go before


the school board for final
determination.
The union and board
have met on numerous oc-
casions since last May,
debating salary schedules
and contractual changes.
The teams came to a ten-
tative agreement last De-
cember on a salary pack-
age. Once negotiations
conclude, raises will be
retroactive to July 1,
2007.


Shenandoah ruling upheld


Continued From Page 1A

that as economic pressures
mount on family farms, ex-
pansion is inevitable.
John and Sandy Killian,
who live near the dairy,
filed suit in June 2007 to
overturn the county's deci-
sion. The Killians live
about a quarter mile from a
site at which the dairy dis-
poses of waste generated
by cattle. In court filings
the Killians complained
that the odor from the
dairy's waste was "intoler-
able" and deprived them of
the enjoyment of their


property.
Through their attorney
the Killians offered several
arguments, including a
claim that the county's de-
cision to grant the permit
violated its own land use
regulations. Wednesday's
ruling noted that, within
limits, the county has the
right to interpret its own
regulations.
Ed Henderson of
Shenandoah said Wednes-
day the dairy is doing
everything it can to satisfy
neighbors' concerns.
"We are making invest-
ments to improve our odor


management, not because
it's required, but in order to
improve our relations with
our neighbors," he said.
Sandy Killian said her
actions weren't motivated
by a disdain for agricul-
ture.
"A lot of farmers think
we're against them but
we're not," she said Thurs-
day morning. "We don't
want him [Henderson] to
go away, but he's coming
out closer to us every time
he expands."
It is not known whether
the decision will be ap-
pealed.


The man who made us smile


Continued From Page 1A

Brim's daughter Glenda
Taylor said she's going to
miss her dad. "He was not
only my dad, he was my
best friend too," Taylor
said. She said he "loved his
music" and loved perform-
ing.
"I remember my dad
saying that the only thing
that made him feel old was
knowing the fact that me
and my brother were se-
nior citizens," Taylor said.
"He was the best man I've
ever known."
And he loved to make
people laugh. "He used to
tell this one joke at the
nursing homes that the
people just loved. He said
every time he went they al-
ways wanted to hear it and
after so long the nurses
there decided to assign that
joke a number, 98, so
every time he went he
would just yell '98' up and
down the halls and every-
one would start laughing
because they knew the
joke already," Taylor said.
For the last 15 years
Brim had performed for
residents at area nursing
homes and at civic events
for free.

At one such perfor-
mance, upon completing a
number Brim asked the
crowd if they wanted to
hear the song backwards.
They said yes, so he turned
his back to the audience
and started singing.
Tom Herndon remem-
bered Brim as a fine man.
"He was very nice, never
had a harsh word to say
about anybody," Herndon
said. Herndon was director
of Friendship Baptist
Church when Brim was
president of the Suwannee
Baptist Brotherhood Asso-
ciation that Friendship was
part of. Herndon played as
a sideman for Brim, play-
ing the guitar, bass and
mandolin.
Friend Leamon Gill
knew Brim all his life.
"Arnold has always been
a true friend, he was a big
joker and always added
something funny to say to
make people laugh," he
said.
Gill said his parents al-
ways taught him to say
"Good morning" and
"Good evening." He re-


members going to Brim's
house as a child and getting
the two mixed up.
"I told his momma
'Good evening' and it was
10:30 in the morning," Gill
said. "She said, 'Have you
ate dinner yet?' I said 'No
ma'am' and she told me
that it was 'Good morning'
then, and since then I have
never gotten it wrong." Gill
owned Gill's Pure Oil Ser-
vice Station in the '50s and
employed Johnnie Bonds,
who played with Brim.
Gill said Brim wanted so
much to make people laugh
that he wrote a joke book,
1001 Reasons to Smile.
"He was a jolly sort of
person who loved to enter-
tain," Gill said.
Brim not only founded
the Suwannee River Play
Boys, but was also a mem-
ber of the Good Ole Boys
music group for eight
years. Brim was a member
of the Suwannee Bluegrass
Association for 10 years
and was also a regular at
the Picking Shed at the
Spirit of Suwannee Music
Park.


Another arrest


Continued From Page 1A

6101 174th Street,
McAlpin, was arrested
March 25 on charges of op-
erating a chop shop, grand
theft of specified property
(four counts), violation of
probation on an original
charge of grand theft, pos-
session of drug parapherna-
lia and possession of less
than 20 grams of marijua-
na.
Grant was also charged
with harboring a fugitive
after the fact for allegedly
failing to report the where-
abouts of Laurence K.


Hogan, 32, no known ad-,
dress, who was wanted in
Clinton and Highland
counties in Ohio.
The chop shop was being
run at a home owned by
Bonnie Gay Scheytt, 53, in
the Ranchettes area, said
authorities. Scheytt was ar-
rested March 19.
Police had narrowed
their search for Hogan after
sources told them he was in
the area, at which point
they accidentally stumbled
onfo the chop shop.
Grant is being detained
in the Suwannee County
Jail without bond.


Proposed prison cuts

lion shortfall, is considering
a plan to cut more than $150
million from the budget of
the Department of Correc-
tions. As many as 1,500 jobs
could be lost under a Senate
proposal.
However, no plan current-
ly on the table would halt
construction of new facili-
ties. Former Corrections
Secretary Jim McDonough
floated such a proposal last
September in an effort to re-
duce a $1 billion shortfall
the legislature faced in its
last term. The plan never got


traction in Tallahassee and
was soon abandoned.
Phase one of the new
Suwannee prison, being
constructed on US 90 east of
Live Oak, is about 25 per-
cent complete. A warehouse
and maintenance building
are in place and workers are
in the early stages of con-
structing the work camp and
main unit. Infrastructure and
work site preparations are
also being completed.
The prison will bring 600-
700 jobs to the community
and is scheduled to begin
accepting inmates in May
p009.

SThe Bulldog baseball teams swept a pair from visiting
Bradford on Tuesday. The JV won the early game 10-2
while the varsity won the late game 6-3.
The varsity won an important District 3-4A game,
scoring all six of their runs in the first two innings.
Bradford rallied back with three runs off Bulldog starter
Ty Smith in the third. Bradford managed to hit four
doubles on the night and might have had more had it not
been for some nice defensive work in the Bulldog
outfield. However, the comeback was cut short with two
innings of quality relief from Clent Flowers before
Mack Murray closed it out in the seventh.
JV pitcher Ryne Turner threw a complete game (the
JV's 10th of the season) for the win. Freshman Ryan
daSilva homered for the second time this season in the
game. The win completes the junior varsity schedule
with an impressive 14-3 record.
The Bulldogs (12-5) will take a few days off for
spring break and return to action Thursday at Union
County in Lake Butler.
Suwannee crushes Ribault 26-1
The Bulldogs won big over the Ribault Trojans 26-1
Monday in Jacksonville. The 'Dogs jumped on the
Trojans early, scoring ten times in the top of the first
inning. Sophomore Greg Bowers gave up an unearned
run in the first but came within one out of the Bulldogs'
third no-hitter of the season. Eight of the nine Bulldog
starters scored three or more runs. Mike Staley hit his
first homerun of the season.
JV 'Dogs smother Buchholz
The JV Dogs had an impressive win on Monday
defeating the Buchholz Bobcats 5-1. Freshman Trevor
Lister threw a complete game for the win. Freshman
first baseman Jared Hendry homered in the game.

SHS senior's final

year of competition

Submitted
Suwannee High senior Justin
Johnson completed his fifth and final
year as a contestant of the Florida
State Fair Youth Steer Futurity Feb.
12-14 in Tampa. The purpose of the
Florida State Fair Youth Steer
Futurity is to provide a supply of top
quality Florida feeder calves to 4-H
and FFA students at a reasonable
price based on current market
conditions, thus affording students
the opportunity for a profitable steer
project. Only steers purchased at the
Florida State Fair Futurity Calf Sale
are eligible for entry in this show.
Another goal is to provide
competitive events where 4-H and
FFA projects help showcase
Florida's livestock industry.
Emphasis is placed on the
educational aspects of the program
with premiums paid for all
competitions relating to the animal
and individuals participation in the
speech contest, poster contest,
skillathon and record book contest.
Yet another goal is to
provide educational
seminars and/or materials in
cooperation with the
University of Florida on all
aspects of selection,
feeding, record keeping,
showmanship, etc.
Over the years of
showing at the Florida State
Fair, Johnson has been
fortunate to win Grand
Champion Steer, Most
Weight Gain and has been
able to compete in the
Champions of Champions
for two years. Competing in
the Florida State Fair Youth

Closer heads to Columbia

for Goodyear Challenge

Rich Clouser and car owner Bobby Sears are
hard at work as they get ready for Saturday
night's Goodyear Challenge Late Model 100 at
Columbia Motorsports Park.
Columbia has always been a good track for
Rich and he is hoping this Saturday night will be
a good night. "Columbia is a long haul for our
team," said Clouser, "but we have always liked
racing at Columbia. In spite of the gas prices
today, we are looking forward to Saturday night
and having a good night there."
Clouser finished fourth in the first race of the
2008 season at New Smyrna Speedway and
stands fourth in points. Last year he finished
second in points after a two year run as the
Champion for the Goodyear Challenge Late
Model Series.

Nest boxes bring woodpeckers to forest


Installing nest boxes for red-cockaded
woodpeckers is not a job for someone
afraid of heights: the process begins by
climbing 20 feet into a pine tree.
But Ralph Holton, a biologist with the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, made the job look easy
when he installed another red-cockaded
woodpecker nest box in the Osceola
National Forest recently. Holton stalled
the process for a moment when he heard a
bird calling out nearby.
"They're really curious," Holton said.
"As soon as we leave, the woodpeckers
will be over here, checking out the new
nest box."
Larry Wood, a contractor working with
Holton, performed ground support duties
for the installations. He had already
fulfilled his contract for 75 nest boxes but
volunteered to install an additional 25
with Holton. Wood also builds the boxes,
which resemble a mutant loudspeaker.
"The wire on the front of the box keeps
pileated woodpeckers from enlarging the
entrance and taking over the nest for
themselves. The white PVC pipe lining
the entrance keeps out red-bellied
woodpeckers," Wood said. "We can't keep
out everything because flying squirrels
can still take over a nest, but this gives the
smaller red-cockaded woodpeckers a
fighting chance against the other
woodpeckers."
To begin the installation, Holton first
chose the tree, which must have a
diameter of at least 14 inches. He then
scaled the tree, encased in safety
harnesses and equipment.
"The higher, the better," Wood said.
"When we have a burn come through,
either controlled or wildfire, the nests are
better off if they're high in the trees."
Once secure at about 20 feet, Holton
scraped off the bark of the pine. He made
small holes in the tree for "sap wells" to
begin the flow of pitch around the new
nest. Sap covers the area around the nest
and will help keep away tree-climbing
snakes.
Using the box, he traced its outline on
the tree. He fired up the chainsaw and cut
the rectangle shape. Using a hammer and
chisel, he removed the wood and shaped


the cavity for the new nest box. Holton
slid the box into the hole and secured it
with shims. He coated the new nest with
wood putty and spray paint to look more
natural. After climbing back to the
ground, Holton spray-painted a white ring
around the base of the tree to help identify
where the nest box had been installed.
"The installation of a nest box takes 20
to 30 minutes," Wood said. "However, the
first one you do usually takes two hours. It
takes a lot of practice to get as good as
Ralph.
"Some people say we're creating 'lazy'
birds by installing these boxes and doing
the work for the woodpeckers. These birds
will normally carve out a cavity in a
mature pine tree, and they are the only
southeastern bird that excavates cavities in
living pines," Wood said. "But the trees
we have in Osceola simply aren't old
enough. These boxes allow for nesting in
young trees that normally wouldn't be
home for these birds."
The birds live in small family groups,
composed of one breeding pair and
several helpers. The extra birds usually
are males from previous breeding seasons;
females rarely stay with their parents. The
helpers assist in raising young, including
incubation, brooding and feeding. The
entire family usually forages as a group,
moving together from tree to tree. Red-
cockaded woodpeckers feed primarily on
ants, beetles, caterpillars, wood-boring
insects, spiders, cockroaches and
occasionally fruit and berries.
"These boxes are not just for only
nesting," Wood said. "The birds use the
artificial cavities to roost in year round.
Another reason we install these boxes in
'recruitment clusters' near established
RCW clusters is to get 'floater birds' to
settle in and establish new and separate
breeding clusters."
In 1810, Alexander Wilson, an English
ornithologist, named the bird "red-
cockaded woodpecker." The name
confuses people today but was easily
understood in the early 1800s.
"The American revolutionary army
couldn't afford brass for badges of rank
and often substituted a colored feather
stuck in the corer of the hat to indicate


"The American
revolutionary
army couldn't
afford brass for
badges of rank
and often
substituted a
colored feather
stuck in the *
corner of the hat
to indicate rank.
These feathers
were called
'cockades'"'
Holton said. "The
male red- 4
cockaded
woodpecker has
only a few red
feathers on the
side of his head.
And that's how he
got his name.

rank. These feathers were Red-cockadel
called 'cockades,'" Holton
said. "The male red-
cockaded woodpecker has only a few red
feathers on the side of his head. And that's
how he got his name."
The bird, federally protected as an
endangered species since 1970, is listed as
a "species of special concern" in Florida.
Habitat destruction attributed to logging,
development and aggressive control of
forest fires has had an impact on the
population decline of red-cockaded
woodpeckers. These actions have wiped
out most of the South's longleaf pine
forests and put a stop to regular burning
necessary to maintain healthy pines.


Almost 97 percent of red-cockaded
woodpecker habitat has been lost in the
past 100 years, according to FWC
biologists.
Florida hosts approximately 25 percent
of the nation's red-cockaded woodpecker
population, with an estimated 1,100 active
family groups. Many of Florida's
populations are carefully managed on
public lands.
"We have approximately 300 red-
cockaded woodpeckers in the Osceola
National Forest, living in 100 active
clusters," Holton said. "With our help,
these birds are making a comeback."

was 15 years 10 months
old when he made his
Major League debut in
1944. Joe would appear
back on the Major League
scene in 1952 and have a
fine 16-year career,
winning 135 games,
saving 19 and hitting 15"
homeruns. Quite an
accomplishment for a
pitcher, and the youngest
man to ever play Major
League baseball.


The Dallas Cowboys are
soul-saving again. The
home of Terrell "That's

pursuing "Where's The

The garbage Deion

absurd. A young man who

Another chance translates
to my next arrest. That
will be #10 but I run a sub
4.4 forty and am a great
return man. I forgot, this is
America's Team, which I
guess wants to marquee
Duane Thomas and


Hollywood Henderson for
their history as opposed to
Roger Staubach and Bob
Hayes. Maybe this is a
ploy to take the pressure
off of Tony Romo and
Jessica Simpson. Is she
Bart's sister?
The almighty buck has
taken over. The Giants win
the Super Bowl and raise
prices. The Yankees will
have seats at new Yankee
Stadium for $1,500 a
game. And I remember
tipping an usher $5 to get
next to Dan Toppings' (ex-
Yankee owner) box seats.
If it weren't for the price

Use your wealth


wisely

wisel


Many in this country have been blessed with
incredible wealth. And although we may not feel
-"rich" if we compare ourselves to millionaires
(or billionaires!), despite an ever growing
disparity between rich and poor, even the poorest
of the poor in our country live better than most
of the poor living in third world countries.
Worldwide, there are over a billion people who
survive on less than a dollar a day, and over two
billion people (a third of the world's population)
who subsist on less than two dollars a day.
When Jesus advised the rich young man, who
wished to be saved, to sell everything he had,
give the money to the poor, and then follow Him,
he told the young man that his treasure would
then be in heaven. This is a wonderful lesson on
wealth, because it suggests that in using our
wealth to help others, and in being detached
enough from our wealth that we could give it all
away, we are gaining a spiritual treasure far more
valuable than our money or physical possessions.
A wealthy person who uses his money wisely to
help others is spiritually superior to a poor
person who covets wealth and dreams of nothing
but being rich. Since none of us will live forever,
and we will eventually give it, all away, why not
start using our wealth to help others while we are
still alive and can see the benefits or our
generosity?

RELIGION


Greed,



miserable greed


"He who dies
with the most toys,
wins." No doubt
you've seen this
bumper sticker that
expresses the
theme for our
culture...more.
Greed is the
supplier and
source for this
"more" and the
second of the
dangerous enemies
to our hearts and
relationships we
want to expose in


Heart Matters


our "spring
cleaning." By AgieLand
The definition of
greed is an
excessive desire for wealth or gain
that can never be satisfied...enough is
never enough. In Ecclesiastes 5:10,
the Bible says: "Whoever loves
money never has money enough;
whoever loves wealth is never
satisfied with his income..." The real
issue here is not money, but the love
of it. Simply put, greed is about not
being satisfied with what we have,
and believing that we will be satisfied
when we get "more."
"People who want to get rich fall
into temptation and a trap and into
many foolish and harmful desires that
plunge men into ruin and destruction.
For the love of money is the root of
all kinds of evil. Some people, eager
for money have wandered from their
faith and pierced themselves with
many griefs." (1 Timothy 6:9-10)
It is interesting that the Bible calls
the love of money the "root" of all
evil. On a tree, we can see the leaves,
bark and branches, but not the root...it
is the hidden part. Greed is not an
action that we can see, but a motive
behind our decisions. This can make
greed hard to detect in our lives
because we are skilled in hiding those
motives and justifying our actions.
However, we cannot hide them from
God...and we should be grateful for


that. Left alone, greed can
leave us miserably
unsatisfied and can cause
serious damage in our
relationships. According:
to Proverbs 15:27, "A
greedy man brings trouble
to his family..." I'm sure
that you could make your
own list of troubles that
greed can bring to a
family, but here are a few
I came up with: becoming
a workaholic that never
sees your family,
quarrelling with family
members over the
inheritance of a loved


one, stealing from your
employer, cheating on
your taxes, withholding
money from someone in need and
neglecting giving to your church. In
making these choices we may think
we will get ahead, but the truth is we
lose so much more than we gain:
relationships, trust, respect, a good
name and God's blessings. The good
news is we don't have to give in to
greed, selfish ambition or hidden
motives to get what we need.
Philippians 4:19 holds the promise...
"and my God will meet all your
needs, according to His glorious
riches in Christ Jesus."
Ask God to search your heart for
any hidden motives of greed, to
forgive you and to help you battle
this enemy of your heart and
relationships. Trust Him keep this
promise...because your heart matters!
Blessings,
Angie

Love INC: Where we're going and

how we're going to get there


Dear Pastors:

We at LOVE In the Name of Christ of
Suwannee County have begun several
new programs as well as have met with
the Branford ministerial churches in
order to foster communications and
ministries together. The following is a
list of what is new and what we are
planning as the year unfolds;
1. Angel Food Ministry. Distribution
of food that will provide savings at the
client level of 50%. Distribution takes
place once per month. All churches are
invited and encouraged to participate
with Love INC in distributing this food
with their congregations. Contact Love
INC for details.
2. We are setting up an internet
tracking system for clients and the help
provided by Love INC and the churches.
This service will allow participating
Churches to check into the network
through our Web Site
www.suwanneeloveinc.org when clients
come to the church for help and to know
if and when that client has been to
another church or Love INC for help.
Each participating church will be issued
a secure code in which to see the
information and add names of people
who come seeking help and what that
church did for the client. We of course
recommend that the church refer them to
love INC for clearing and help. Example
of this is, we received a call from a
church about a person seeking help, who
made $4000.00 per month and we were
able to provide a history on that person
to the church which they didn't know
about. These people need help in Life
Style Living and we want to develop
programs that will, as we grow, provide
the support and transformations so
necessary to survive and develop a
relationship with the Lord.
3. For the first quarter of this year
Love INC has distributed over $800.00
dollars of bread and bakery products per
week to needy people in our community.
4. We have helped churches and
clients with fuel needs, utility bills and
various needs such as taking people to
rescue mission's shelters, and helping a
family to get to Jacksonville for doctor
visit.


5. God has blessed us and we have
been able to distribute food to over 200
families with an estimated value of over
$7000.00 dollars.

So what is this all about? We want all
of you and your churches to understand
what we at Love Inc are'doing here in
Suwannee County. We clearly need your
financial support from your operating
budgets, and we would like your church
to adopt our .50 Cents for God weekly
campaign to help us develop our
organization in LOVE in the Name of
Christ of Suwannee County. As so often
talked about in the Bible Matthew 6:21
"For where your treasure is, there your
heart will be also". We are growing and
will be developing additional ministries
to help your church fulfill its mission of
helping the people here in Suwannee
County area.

Yours in Christ,
Joseph Catarious
Executive Director
