Over objections

By Vanessa Fultz
vanessat fultz@gaflnews.com
The county commission
voted 3-2 to approve a spe-
cial permit for the operation
of a sprayfield April 15.
Raymond Howard will
operate the sprayfield on
2.81 acres of his property in
O'Brien to dispose of waste
for his business in which he
pumps out septic tanks. Sep-
tage (household waste) that
is pumped out will be neu-
tralized through a lime stabi-
lization process before it is
disposed of.
Ellen Vause, who. repre-
sented Howard at the meet-
ing, said land application is
the only current means of
septage disposal in Spwan-
nee County.

Staff
A three-month investigation by dithe
Suwannee County Drug Task Force
led to 23 arrests here Thursday and
Friday with nearly an equal number
to come, say authorities.
Arrests were made throughout the
county, according to Sheriff Tony
Cameron. The busts had been set up
in previous weeks through surveil-
lance and controlled buys, Cameron
said.
"The guys do an excellent job,"
Cameron said of the task force. "Any
time you can remove 23 drug dealers
from the streets in one day is a good
day for Suwannee County." Cameron
said there were pockets of drug infes-
tations in the city of Live Oak and the
county.
Nineteen warrants have been is-
sued for additional arrests, Cameron
said.

HOW are you going to spend your economic stimulus check?
Most Americans will be getting a little something extra in the mail sometime soon. Starting next month, the In-
ternal Revenue service will begin sending economic stimulus payments tomore than 130 million households. For '
married couples, the checks can total as much as $1,200. Here's how some local folks plan to use theirs.


"I will use it to pay,
on my first mort-
gage payment for
my new house."

"We'll tuck some of
it away and maybe

Sjogren's Syndrome: control of symptoms
Sjogren's syndrome is a condition of an abnormally functioning
immune system. Mucous membranes of the eyes and mouth are
commonly affected, although other tissues may be involved. This
condition often occurs in persons affected by other conditions of the
immune system, such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. The cause of
Sjogren's syndrome is unknown; however certain factors such as
infections, heredity, and certain hormones are thought to potentially
play a role in the development of this condition. Common signs and
symptoms include dry eyes, dry mouth, fatigue, and dry skin. Joint
pain and swelling also may occur.
Although there is no cure available for Sjogren's syndrome,
treatments are available to provide relief for symptoms. Nonsteroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen (Advil), work to alleviate
pain and inflamfnatipn. Steroids help reduce inflammation, however
serious side effects may result from long term use.
Hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) is an antimalarial medication that
works to decrease joint inflammation. Pilocarpine (Salagen) may be
prescribed to alleviate dry mouth. Cevimeline (Evoxac) also works to
relieve dry mouth. Cyclosporine (Restasis) eye-drops may be
prescribed for persons affected by Sjogren's syndrome. 43998-F

Layoffs possible

in county

building

department

Construction
s urp t blame Caruthers

By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com

County Coordinator Johnny Wooley told the county com-
mission April 15 that a slowdown in local construction
means cuts must be made in the county building department,
including possible layoffs.
"New home construction has backed off considerably,"
Wooley said Monday, adding that commercial construction
has also slowed locally.
"The fund balance is not there to deal with it," Wooley
said. "We will go into reserves if we don't cut expenses."
The department is self-funded through building permits of
new homes and commercial construction. Though renova-
tion and inspection permits are still being purchased, those
do not bring in revenue sufficient to sustain the department.
Several commissioners said revenue for the building de-
partment has fallen short of previous years' totals.
"At this time the income is insufficient to keep up with the
general expenses to operate the department," Commission
Chairman Douglas Udell said Monday.
"They are 36 percent short on revenues. Something needs
to happen to balance the budget," Commissioner Ivie
Fowler said.
Commissioner Jesse Caruthers was concerned about
maintaining a sufficient number of employees to shoulder
the workload in the department. He was also concerned
about being faced with the need to hire employees once con-
struction picks up again.
"Because building personnel are so hard to get we'll prob-
ably find a way to fund salaries," Caruthers said.
Udell said he is confident the county commission will
come up with a solution that doesn't include layoffs.
"We've got to maintain that department to provide these
services to the county. I'm not for laying anyone off," Udell
said.
Patrick Sura, the county building official, will report to the
board May 6 on his plans to cut expenses.
Sura supervises a staff of six.

ASK DR. MANTOOTHI



Q: My sinuses are clogged and my upper
teeth ache. Should I see my physician or a
dentist?
A:Your question is a good one because sinus
and dental problems can sometimes be hard
to tell apart. And sometimes they are related.
For instance, infections of upper molars can
spread to create a sinus infection. Conversely,
a sinus infection can cause pain In the area'ot
the upper molars because nerves for those
teeth and sinus areas are so close. A.chronic
sinus condition may be caused by an
anatomical flaw in the sinus, by allergens in
your environment, like mold or pollen, or by
untreated tooth infection, among other facts.
Smoking and temporomandibular joint
problems can also cause a sinus condition.
A dental examination, often including x-
rays, can help determine If the problem Is a
tooth Infection. One tip is to keep a record of
your condition and when any associated pain
occurs. This will help your doctors diagnose
the root of the problem. Whichever option you
choose in this situation your physician or
your dentist the Important thing Is to visit
one of them. Self-medicatlon for a condition
that has not been professionally evaluated is
risky business. Talking with your dentist about
a problem that Involves your mouth is a good
way to start.

OUR V EW
Suwannee Democrat


A little



courage,



please

We're not all that worried
over what tune they'll play at
Florida's next inaugural ball.
The multi-billion dollar budget
shortfall seems a more press-
ing issue than whether to re-
tain "Swanee River" as the
state song.
Still, it's a legitimate ques-
tion, and one we wouldn't
minq( seeing resolved once and
for all. That's why we were
disappointed to learn the way
lawmakers plan to handle it.
A compromise is in the
works to change the lyrics but
keep the song provided an-
other tune, "Florida, Where the
Sawgrass Meets the Sky," is
designated the state anthem.
(The practical difference be-
tween a "state song" and a
"state anthem" has yet to be
explained by lawmakers.)
Either part of this compro-
mise makes sense. Together,
they're a disaster. Being politi-
cians, Florida lawmakers
would like to please everyone.
In trying to do so, all they've.
shown is a lack of political
courage.
Maybe they just wanted to be
done with it so they could get
back to grappling with the $3
billion hole in the state budget.
It doesn't work that way, the
way we see it. If legislators,
fearful of alienating any given
constituency, can't pick a state
song, how will they ever find
the courage to make the cuts
needed to balance the budget?
Compromise is the founding
principle of politics. But this
one, for want of a better word,
borders on the ridiclous.

FROM OUR READERS


To the Editor:
I would like to take the opportunity
to thank our community for a great
2008 Suwannee High School
junior/senior prom. We sometimes
take for granted the community that
we live in, and have to be reminded
when folks go "above and beyond" to
remind us of the great place we choose
to call home. The junior class, in an ef-
fort to "do something different and
special" for the prom, had a vision of
moving it off of the SHS campus. The
National Guard Armory, became the
place of choice and the local National
Guard unit staff could not have been
more helpful. They assisted in the dec-
oration efforts and made some special
efforts to arrange the facility in a way


that made the prom special for every-
one who attended. The night turned out
great and it is due, in large part,, to the
efforts of the unit staff. For this the ju-
niors and seniors at Suwannee High
School are very thankful.
In addition to the National Guard
staff, the Live Oak Police Department
and the Suwannee County Sheriff's
Office provided a great deal of support
for the evening both in preparation for
the prom, during and after the main
events. On Friday, before prom, Sher-
iff Tony Cameron came by SHS to
check to see that all preparations had
been set and to offer any additional as-
sistance. Sheriff Cameron and his wife
attended the prom for several hours
and their presence shows a true com-


mitment to support the efforts for
youth in our community. We appreci-
ate the presence and support. Follow-
ing the prom, the after-prom party,
sponsored by the local Drug-Free
Coalition and Youth Advocacy Coun-
cil, was well attended by both Live
Oak Police Department and Suwannee
County Sheriff's Office. This obvious
support is welcomed and appreciated
by the SHS students and administra-
tion.
Thanks to all for making the 2008
Suwannee High Schobl prom a great
event!
Sincerely,
Dawn Lamb, Principal
Suwannee High School
Live Oak

By Jeff Waters
Jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

One person was hurt in
a two-vehicle crash on
Pine Avenue Sunday
morning.
According to reports
from the Live Oak Police
Department, Rhoshonda
L Herring, 33, of 517 SW
Houston Ave., Live Oak,
driver of a 2005 Nissan
Altima, pulled into the
path of a 2001 Chevrolet
Blazer driven by Flora W
Andrews, 67, of 6244
175th Rd., also of Live
Oak.
Herring, who was trav-
eling east on John Street,
reportedly told officers


she did not see Andrews
coming and pulled into
the intersection, striking
the Blazer on the driver's
side and causing the ve-
hicle to hit the curb and
overturn.
Andrews was trans-
ported to Shands Live
Oak for lacerations on
her hands and arms.
Taryn' Loper, 12, same
address as Herring, was a
passenger in Herring's
vehicle and was not hurt.
All involved were wear-
ing seat belts..
Shrubbery on the
southwest corner of the
intersection is said to be
a contributing factor in
the crash, said police. ,

dam, N.Y. to Wellborn in 1998.
She will be remembered as someone who
was down-to-earth.
"She didn't have lots of wants or desires,"
Don Sheddan said.
Sheddan was dedicated to her work and an
excellent trainer at Burger King in Lake City.
She liked to dance and play games, said
her brother-in-law. "She loved playing
spades," he said. Brother Joey Barkevich
agreed. "Her biggest hobby was playing


spades on that computer," he remembered
Tuesday.
Barkevich, who lives in Tampa, fondly re-
members playing cards against his sister over
the Internet. "We linked together a couple of
times and had a good time," he said.
Barkevich said his sister loved getting in-
volved with her kids' sporting events. "She
was always helping them with soc6er and T-
ball and things like that," he noted. Barke-
vich added that his older sister whom he
remembers looking after him as a boy was
a good student and a member of ROTC.


Survivors include her husband, William E.
"Bill" Sheddan Sr. of Wellborn; mother,
Linda Barkevich of Live Oak; father and
stepmother, Mike and Bonnie Baker of Lake
City; two daughters, Joyce Penelope Shed-
dan and Heather Sharon Davis, both of
Wellborn; four sons, William E. Sheddan Jr.,
Joshua Ryan Davis, Thomas Michael Davis
and Wesley Darin Davis Jr., all of Wellborn;
one sister, Cindy Waldron of Wellborn; two
brothers, Joey Barkevich of Tampa and
Daniel Barkevich of Trenton; and maternal
grandfather, Ray Adams of Amsterdam, N.Y.

Jarvis announces bid

for state attorney post

ty, having graduated from
Columbia High School and
Lake City Community Col-
lege. He received his bach-
elor's degree in criminolo-
gy and a certificate in law
Enforcement from Florida
State University, and his
law degree from Mississip-
pi College School of Law.
Jarvis is no stranger to
government service, having
previously served as chief
deputy clerk of court in Co-
lumbia County and as city
treasurer for the city of
Lake City.
Jarvis has successfully
managed private businesses
involved in oil and gas ex-
ploration and production,
handling sites from the
state of Florida as far west
as Utah and north to
Arkansas. In addition, he
has experience in private
civil and defense work as
an associate with the firm
of Zachary and Zachary in
Hattiesburg, Miss.
For the past 24 years
Jarvis has been with the
state attorney's office han-
dling not only a full felony,
misdemeanor and juvenile
caseload, but he has also
held the sole responsibility
for the state attorney's of-'
fice in civil matters in
which the state of Florida is
a party. These include,
among other things, bond
validations, civil liability
claims and mental health
commitments. For some 20
years he handled as a part
of his duties contraband
forfeiture actions for the
Suwannee County Sheriff's
Office and the Live Oak
Police Department, turning
over monies and properties
used by criminals in their
felony crimes to the appro-
priate agencies.
Based upon his business
background, in addition to
his other caseload, Jarvis
was assigned by the state
attorney to handle econom-
ic and white collar crime,
consumer fraud and envi-
ronmental crime circuit-
wide. He developed and
presents programs to civic,
fraternal and religious orga-
nizations covering identity
theft and consumer fraud to
educate the public on how
to avoid becoming a victim.
Jarvis has prosecuted-
cases in all seven counties
of the Third Circuit and has
been previously cross
sworn to handle prosecu-
tions for statewide prosecu-
tor Melanie Hines.
For the past 20 years,
Jarvis has also been an in-
structor for the North Flori-
da Community College
Law Enforcement Acade-
my, where he teaches basic


recruit classes, law enforce-
ment and corrections offi-
cers as well as recertifica-
tion and incentive classes
for experienced officers. He
holds a close bond with his
former students who are
employed in the areas of
law enforcement and cor-
rections, many of whom are
currently serving with
agencies here in Suwannee
County.
Jarvis stresses three areas
he wishes to address by his
candidacy.
First, the state attorney
must be open and account-
able to the people he repre-
sents. Any and all citizens
must be free to openly and
candidly speak with their
state attorney regarding
matters of concern to them.
Jarvis has a reputation for
being accessible to the pub-
lic. He states that while he
may not be able to disclose
information or give the an-
swer they wish to hear, all
citizens should have access
to their governmental pros-
ecutor.
Second, as a prosecutor,
the state attorney must be
law enforcement oriented.
There must be a partnership
with law enforcement agen-
cies, while maintaining in-
dependence and discretion,
which is necessary to make
appropriate charging deci-
sions. Jarvis's bachelor's
degree in criminology, his
certification in law enforce-
ment, and his training of
and close relationship with
his former students have
prepared him to work
closely with and understand
the needs and concerns of
officers trying to keep the
public safe.
Third, the state attorney
must be a person of integri-
ty. Personal interests or
politics must never take pri-
ority over his commitment
to the people. The office
belongs to the people, not
the elected individual.
Jarvis has been married
for 39 years to Pamela
Manasco Jarvis, who works
at Cheek and Scott Drugs in
Live Oak. They have two
daughters, Beth Jarvis Co-
hen and Sara Jarvis Phtton,
and five grandchildren.
He received an Honor-
able Discharge from the
United States Navy.
Being a long time resi-
dent and property owner in
Suwannee County, Jarvis
says he has a vested interest
in seeing that the citizens
receive the best representa-
tion and protection avail-
able, coupled with a re-
sponsibility to them for
every dollar spent.

Suwannee goes 12-0 in district,

outscoring opponents 147-34

Friday was an emotional night as the five senior Bulldogs played
their last regular season game at Booster Field. All five contributed
to the 17-2 blowout of East Gadsden. Shortstop Sean Ryan scored
three runs and stole a base. Third baseman Mike Staley had two
hits and got on base in all four plate appearances. Catcher Lee
Radford had an
RBI single. Alan
Michael Gibson
had a double and
two RBIs on the
night. Rightfielder
Ty Smith had two
hits including a long
three run homerun
over the left field
wall and across the
street. Fittingly,
Ryan and Gibson
turned a double play
to end the game.
Underclassmen
also put in good
performances.

SHS grad Baldwin named


Student-Athlete of the Year


for Tallahassee C.C. baseball


Submitted

Live Oak's Rheed Baldwin
has been named Tallahassee
Community College baseball's
Student-Athlete of the Year.
Baldwin, a second-year player
for the TCC Eagles, received
the award on Monday evening
during TCC's Division of
Student Affairs Student
Leadership and Service Awards
Banquet.
The year-end banquet
recognizes student leaders
from the College's various


NFCC to suspend sports

programs next year


Submitted
The North Florida
Community College Board of
Trustees voted unanimously to
suspend intercollegiate
athletic programs for the
2008-09 school year due to
anticipated budget reductions.
The vote came during the
April 15 board meeting.
"It was an agonizing
decision but the college had
no other option given the
budget reductions we are
facing," said President Morris
G. Steen Jr.
Administrators anticipate a
revenue reduction of more
than $590,000 next year. The
athletic budget was $473,773
of NFCC's $8.9 million total
budget for 2007-08.
"I was here in 1960 when


the first athletic teams were
established, so I, more than
most, have a deep appreciation
of athletics," Steen told the
board. "It breaks my heart to
be here at the closing of the
programs. "
In a presentation explaining
the recommendation from
senior management, Vice
President of Academic Affairs
John Grosskopf said that the
move protected the core
mission of the college -
teaching and learning in tight
financial times.
NFCC fields three
intercollegiate teams,
women's fastpitch softball,
women's basketball and men's
baseball. Sixty-two athletes

COMMENTARY


Homeruns


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels


This past week A-Rod
passed Eddie Matthews and
Ernie Banks. Manny Ramirez
passed Fred McGriff and Lou
Gehrig and Ken Griffey was
approaching 600 homeruns.
Homeruns ain't what they used
to be.
In the immortal baseball
song "Talkin About Baseball"
they mention Willie, Mickey
and the Duke. Now Willie
Mays, who once stood second
.behind Babe Ruth as the all-
time homer champ, and the
"Commerce Comet" Mickey
Mantle, have certainly had'
their careers highlighted. The
Duke, however, got lost in the
New York shuffle. Edwin 'The
Silver Fox" Snider was for five
years the most prolific
homerun hitter since the Babe.
From 1953 through 1957 the
Duke of Flatbush Avenue hit
over 40 homeruns every year,
207 to be exact. At that time he
was also the only National
Leaguer to hit four homeruns
in a World Series and he did it
twice. No one had ever hit 40
or more homeruns for five
seasons in a row except Ruth.
Snider retired in 1964 with 407
dingers and at the time ranked
10th all-time. Nowadays 400
homeruns doesn't guarantee
Hall of Fame status, but it is
still impressive.

OUTDOORS


Beau Turner shares his


passion for nature with kids


Beau Turner, a powerful environmentalist, is
fighting for a world where children have every
opportunity to touch the face and hear the voice of
Mother Nature.
Turner, the son of Ted Turner of CNN fame, has
vowed to do all he can to provide youngsters with
opportunities to explore nature and the treasure trove
of wonders it offers. A solid step toward this goal
became a reality when he formed a partnership with
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission this year with the opening of the Beau
Turner Youth Conservation Center south of
Tallahassee. The center, the first of its kind in Florida,
opened in March on 160 acres Turner has leased to the
FWC. The goal for the center is to develop a
stewardship ethic among youth through programs
designed to develop their outdoor skills and to instill
an appreciation and knowledge of the longleaf pine
ecosystem and wildlife management techniques.
Officials with the FWC say Turner has been involved
in every step of opening the center, which offers free
classes to youths.
At 40, Turner hardly looks his age. Only in bright
daylight can you detect isolated single gray strands in
his slightly shaggy brown hair. His green eyes seem
always to be focused except when he closes them in
deep concentration. His hands slice the air for
emphasis when talking about his various ecological
projects.
On Wednesday, April 9, some of Florida's most
powerful environmental legislators and FWC
commissioners will gather at the youth center to hear
Turner share his philosophy on ecology and
community and to celebrate the partnership between
the FWC and Turner.
"This center is just one of the pieces of the puzzle,"
Turner said. "There is no other real opportunity for
kids to sign up and do the things they can do here. And


everything is free."
The activities at the
center include fishing in
the pond, practicing on
the Olympic-stylearchery
and 3-D archery courses,
shooting on the rifle and
shotgun ranges, which use
solar-powered throwers
and biodegradable targets,
hiking nature trails and
viewing wildlife.
"Kids don't know
where food comes from,"
Turner said. "I find that
frightening. We need to
educate them so they can
see the connection."
Florida's youth
conservation center serves
as a.model, Turner said.
He plans to use the model


"They say it
takes a village,
well, I'm just a
part of that
village," Turner
said. "We have
just got to get
kids outside,
and I'll do
anything I can
to facilitate
that."


to create others of its type on ranches owned by the
Turners across the country and in South America. The
Turner family is the largest private landowner in the
United States, with nearly 2 million acres in its
holdings. The younger Turner runs the land operations
of the Turner Foundation, which is why the New York
Times stated in 2000, "Arguably, Beau Turner is
already the most influential citizen/environmentalist in
the nation"
All of Ted's five children are involved some way in
the environment, but Beau works on a local level. He
believes rural communities provide the perfect setting
for making a difference in the life of a youth.
"My dad recently committed these lands to
conservation after he dies," Turner said. "I don't know
of any other individual wvho has done so much for the


Beau Turner talks about his vision for teaching conservation
to kids as he enjoys the beauty of the 36-acre pond at the

Tallahassee. The youth center, run by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission, provides free classes in
outdoor appreciation for kids. Turner, whose family leases

Florida and Georgia ending senior citizen license exemption


An agreement between
Florida and Georgia that allows
senior citizens from either state
to hunt and fish in fresh water
without licenses in both states
is about to end.
The agreement, which dates


back to 1981, will end on June
30.
Georgia officials announced
in May 2007 that economic
realities have rendered the
reciprocal agreement no longer
feasible for hunting, and it will


come off the books. The nature
of the agreement requires that
Florida follow suit. The Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) voted
Wednesday to end the
reciprocal agreement


concerning freshwater fishing,
as well. The agreement never
has exempted nonresident
seniors from either state from
saltwater fishing license
requirements.
Senior citizens who are


Florida residents may continue
to hunt and fish in Florida
without purchasing a Florida
license, although the FWC
encourages seniors to purchase
licenses to support
conservation.

Set Yourself Up

For Success!

What is success? Encarta
World Dictionary defines success
as... The achievement of a desired
aim. The achievement of
something planned or attempted. It
also defines success as achieving
fame, wealth & popularity but we
are concentrating on the 1st part of
the definition.

How do you set yourself up for
success? You have to start
somewhere. If living a healthier
lifestyle or being healthier is your
goal, here are a few suggestions.

Set a goal That could include
weight loss goal, body fat % goal,
clothes size, blood pressure, blood
sugar, etc.
Count the cost VS The price -
Changing your diet and purchasing
a gym membership would cost you
something BUT what would the
price be if you didn't do those
things, (becoming or remaining
overweight due to no exercise &
eating unhealthy, high blood
pressure, cholesterol issues, high
blood sugar, heart problems, etc)
Gather Materials You
materials could be a gym
membership, a personal trainer to
help you set and reach your goals,
changing the foods in your cabinet
and refrigerator
Gather Workers Find
someone to come with you to the
gym, not only for companionship,
but also for accountability Hire a
Personal Trainer to help you with
your fitness goals & nutrition.
Go For It!!! Don't let words,
attitude or a bad day keep you
from moving forward!

Success comes in all shapes and
sizes. It has different looks and
appearances: You determine what
success if for you and don't let
anyone tell you different.

Beau Turner shares his passion for nature with kids


Continued From Page 2B

a little red with just a trace of sunburn.
"I live, work and recreate in the
outdoors," Turner said. "For relaxation,
I go sleep in the woods. The ranches
we own are just extended families for
me, and I'm rarely away from any of
them. That's my passion."
He's a lean 6-foot-2 with long,
slender fingers that look well suited for
playing the piano, but he never took a
lesson. His life is nature. The back of
the small station wagon he drives from
the center to his home nearby bears a
bumper sticker that reads, "I brake for
butterflies." He looks as if he might
have played basketball, but baseball
interested him as a youth. He even
trained at the Atlanta Braves spring
training camp, but when he found out
baseball season interfered with turkey
hunting season, he dropped his bat and
left America's pastime to pursue his
true love.
His son is being raised with the same
appreciation instilled in Turner as a
child growing up in Atlanta. Turner's
first experiences with nature occurred


at the Atlanta Country Club, when it
was just a small, rural club. He and his
brothers would run around the golf
course fishing in the ponds and
sometimes catching both fish and golf
balls.
"We ran around outside to get the
energy out," Turner said. "I do the
same thing with my son today. I just
get him outside and run him around
playing games."
Turner looks to some of the country's
earliest environmentalists, such as John
Muir, Teddy Roosevelt and Aldo
Leopold. He talks about the philosophy
of community and land in the style of
Leopold, who said, "That land is a
community is the basic concept of
ecology, but that land is to be loved and
respected is an extension of ethics."
"They say it takes a village, well, I'm
just a part of that village," Turner said.
"We have just got to get kids outside,
and I'll do anything I can to facilitate
that."
Doing anything includes opening 900
acres adjacent to the youth center for
the FWC's Youth Hunting Program,
which encourages landowners to share


their land in order to preserve hunting
traditions in Florida for future
generations.
Turner credits the community
surrounding the Florida youth center as
the single most important factor in the
success of the center. The rural
communities of this country still
provide a slower life, and Turner
believes rural folks keep their word and
enjoy a better way of life than those
living in urban areas.
He challenges all landowners to do
what he has done on whatever scale
they can manage because Turner
believes that not helping kids enjoy the
outdoors will bring devastating results.
Even if one farmer would invite one
child out to the land to show him where
food is grown, Turner adamantly
claims a brighter future for today's
youth.
Turner spends a portion of his time
on his family's Florida 25,000-acre
plantation, Avalon, adjacent to the
youth conservation center. Here he has
worked to bring back the native
landscape by planting longleaf pines
and wiregrass and making a home for


the red-cockaded woodpecker, species
of special concern. His green eyes
sparkle when discussing the longleaf
and the red-cockaded woodpecker that
makes its home in the pines.
"If I can get just one kid to plant a
longleaf pine in his yard, then I've left
something,' he said as he held out the
slender long needle of a longleaf
planted at the youth center. "This is a
huge undertaking but it's nurturing the
land back to its original state and
creating biodiversity once again in the
environment."
Just as Turner learned a deep love
and appreciation for the outdoors as a
child, he is instilling that love in his
own child as well. But he hopes for
more; he wants to show communities of
children how to respect and love the
land.
"It all begins with that first fish,"
Turner said. "That's where it began for
me. I caught my first fish, a bream, at
the age of 4. My dad helped me get the
fish off the hook.
"Now you have to catch that second
fish to continue, but it all begins with
that first one."

surprising information that reveals how forest-friendly your
home may already be.
Many people are aware of reuse and recycling efforts to
Choose products help our planet, but this site informs about the little-known
from certified virtues of using products made from renewable resources,
sustainable forests. like forests, instead of nonrenewable resources and those
s tn e s which exist in limited amounts. In addition to many helpful
family-friendly reuse and recycle tips, the site is also a
wealth of information about the benefits of using
renewable resources, like wood and paper, in our homes.
Wood and paper come from one of the Earthis greatest
renewable resources, our forests, which continually
replenish themselves, especially with proper management
and care. The site recommends choosing wood and paper
from certified sustainable forests, which are carefully
managed by forest industry professionals. In fact, certified
sustainable forests are one reason there are 12 million
more acres of U.S. forests today than there were 20 years
ago.
a Just like the trees they are made from, the renewable
resources of wood and paper continue to benefit the
atmosphere. Wood and paper products, such as wood
-furniture or magazines, store carbon and keep it from
being released into the. atmosphere as long as they are in
use. Plus, they can be recycled. It is also good to know
That millions of new trees are planted every day in the
United States, more than making up for what is harvested
to make these products.
The site suggests these easy ways to make a home
forest green:
S, 'If you can't re-use a box, recycle it. More than 75 percent

for recycling.
Save paper bags. You can reuse them for school
lunches or turn them into book covers. Re-purposing and
recycling paper saves money and energy.
Plant a tree. Besides adding beauty and value to your
Landscaping, trees act as natural air conditioners and
... windbreaks to keep your indoor climate more comfortable.


Coldwater Bleach Conserves

Washing clothes in cold water as a way to save energy and
money.is a hot topic in households across the country. Simply
turning the setting down from hot to cold water when doing
your laundry can save up to 14 percent on annual energy bills.
Accordingto the U.S. Department of Energy, more than 80
percent of energy used to wash clothes comes from heating
water, so switching from hot to cold helps save $,17 a load, or
more than $60 a year. With more than 105 million households
in the country, that adds up to more than $6 billion in savings.
However, even fans of energy conservation complain that
using a cooler wash cycle often comes at the cost of residual
stains and less bright whites. New laboratory research
suggests that adding a bleaching product is critical when
washing whites in cold water. Due to the decrease of
detergent performance in cold, bleach is needed to reach the
optimum cleaning level. By adding bleach to every white or
bleach-safe load of cold water wash, you will boost the
cleaning power of the wash cycle to bring out whiter whites,
while helping prolong the life of fabric and keeping energy
costs down.
Known as lDr. Laundry, Harold Baker is the associate
research fellow from The Clorox Company who helped
develop the energy-conscious laundry technology. IThe
problem is that most detergents donit perform as well in cooler
temperatures fi we have found that you need an extra boost,?
said Baker. iWe formulated Clorox Plus Coldwater Bleach to
keep white garments and linens looking their best just like
Cloroxfs original formula has done for millions of laundry loads
throughout the years.
Washing in cold water not only helps conserve energy, it
works to prolong the life of fabrics, Baker added. Fibers break
down less quickly in cold Water verses hot. For optimal
cleaning with washing bleach-safe loads in cold water, Baker
stressed using bleach because it helps lift soils better than
detergent along in cold water.
Baker says there are many ways families can save money
and conserve energy in the laundry room. Some of his favorite
energy savings laundry tips include:
* Only wash full loads of laundry to save water and heating
costs
* Dry heavy and light fabrics separately to keep drying times
down, and set a timer to avoid over drying
* Switch the dryer load immediately to leverage the leftover
heat and increase the efficiency of the dryer
* Clean the dryer lint filter every time to ensure nothing is
blocking air flow and hampering heat efficiencies

enroll in our Solar Water Heating with EnergyWise'
program, and receive a $450 credit just for signing up.
What's more, you'll not only enjoy reduced energy
bills each month with savings up to 85 percent on
your water heating costs you'll also be joining us

Creating 'portrait art' as family heirlooms has been an
ongoing passion for Richard and Sunshine Wright,
owners of Colonial Photography in Live Oak. Recently,
as part of their commitment to continual education in
art and business, the Wrights spent four days in Paris,
France, followed by an intensive two-day seminar in
North Carolina with master photographers, Reg and
Jacqueline Mess of British Columbia, Canada.
The choice to travel to art museums in Paris was not
only to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary, but to
also continue the tradition of their mentor, world-
renown master photographer Jay Stock, who they
accompanied on visits to art and photography museums
during their five-year study course with him. "For years
I've studied the art of master painters in books," said
Sunshine. "Yet details, like the second umbrella in
Claude Monet's painting of 'The Luncheon,' are often
lost within the small prints of a book. Viewing their life-
sized paintings in person has increased my appreciation
of their skill in preserving everyday life as works of art.
They are my inspiration when I'm digitally painting the
portraits of our clients."
The two-day seminar in North Carolina focused on
the art of serving thq needs of clients while creating
custom portrait art. This seminar was unique because it
provided hands-on training and role-playing. "By sitting
in the client'schair and experiencing our services from
their perspective, we better understand how they feel
and are empowered to create a superior portrait while
serving them from our heart," said Sunshine.
During their tour of Versailles, Richard Wright was
impressed by how the king's palace was decorated with
life-sized paintings of his personal family rather than
landscapes. "When.you think about it, 'The Luncheon'
is Monet's painting of his family playing in their yard,"
he remarked. "The works of art now hanging in
museums were originally personal portrait art gracing
the walls of family homes. That's why Colonial's line of
Signature Portrait Art is designed as personal custom
'wall d6cor.' Because your family is your masterpiece
and deserves to be preserved as a work of art."
Richard and Sunshine Wright are the owners of
Colonial Photography of Live Oak,'

appreciates donations; it couldn't
operate without them. Donations
are the heart and soul of its thrift
shop income. Please consider
taking them donations of clothes,
household goods, furniture and
toys. All donations should be in
good condition; otherwise, they
cannot sell them. Thank you!
Volunteers are wanted and
needed four hours a week on the
day of your choice. Call to learn
more. People are always needed
to hold, pet, love and walk the
homeless animals at the shelter,
so if you can't adopt you can
always come help in many other
ways. .
RECYCLING BINS:
Live Oak: There is a


newspaper recycling bin at 305
Pinewood Drive, Live Oak, just
west of Johnson's
Appliance/Radio Shack.
Lee: Recycling bins are
located at the shelter at 1156 SE
Bisbee Loop, Madison (just
South of Lee) for newspapers,
catalogs, paper, magazines and
broken down cardboard. All the
money goes to help the homeless
animals.
SPAYING AND NEUTERING:
Experts say the most important
thing people can do to help their
pets is to get them spayed or
neutered. This means the animals
get an operation, to be sure they
can't have kittens or puppies.
They are asleep during the
operation, so they aren't scared
or in pain.


Suwannee County Animal Shelter
Open House/Animal Fair
Suwannee County Animal Shelter will hold an Open

Oak on 144th Street, McAlpin. We do not need food
vendors for this event. Please help us make this fundrais-
er a big success. We appreciate donations of new items
for a silent auction, as well as cash donations. This fund-
raiser is to benefit the expansion program that has begun,
and to help us continue the spay-neuter program for all
animals adopted from our shelter. Remember, have your
pet spayed or neutered. Info: Ana Smith, 386-364-5584

15th Annual Wellborn
Blueberry Festival
Wellborn Community Association (WCA) is L
planning its 15th Annual Wellborn Blueberry
Festival. This year's festival is a two-day affair.
Arts and crafts vendors, food concessions and
the Country Store will be selling both days. .
The Blueberry Bake-Off Contest and Tasting
Party will be held on Friday, along with the
crowning of Little Miss and Mr. Blueberry. The


Spaying and neutering are so
important because there are so
many animals needing care and
not enough homes or shelters for
them.
One cat or dog can have many
litters in its life. Its kittens or
puppies can have many litters,
too. This can end up creating
thousands of new cats and dogs.
Featured animals for adoption:
Remember, do not leave pets
in vehicles for any length of time
due to the heat and humidity or
cold weather.

ILE GENERATORS!

Many residents who lose power may turn to
emergency generators to ensure a continuous flow
of electricity to refrigerators, freezers, lights, fans
and other appliances. SVEC urges residents to
exercise extreme caution. While generators are a
convenience in keeping appliances running during
storm-related outages,., they can also create hazards
for homeowners and electric utility workers.

When operating a generator:
dance with your house to receive power directly from a portable

SVEC. Transfer switches isolate the circuits supplied by
a generator indoors the generator and prevent backfeeding inadvertently

A Long Life Starts With a Healthy Lifestyle


As the aging process progresses, most men begin making
health a priority. But many of the health problems both
men and women encounter as they age are the result of
lifestyle choices they made when they were younger and
continued to practice as they got older. Simply put, what's
done to a body today will affect how it behaves tomorrow.
Fortunately, the human body has an amazing capacity to
recuperate, meaning it's never too late to make lifestyle
changes that can make a person's golden years more
healthy and enjoyable. While the term "lifestyle change"
can seem overwhelming, many of these changes are far
easier to put into practice than it might seem.
Watch your weight. Obesity levels have exceeded,
reached or are approaching all-time highs in many
developed nations. Obesity can be especially harmful to
adults approaching their senior years, as obesity increases
a person's risk for diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke,
and heart disease.
Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the best things a
person can do to avoid the series of problems that men and
women can encounter as they get older. The Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) points out that
defining a healthy weight depends on a number of
individual factors. For example, age is a determining
factor, as a healthy weight for an individual at 45 might
not be considered healthy when that individual turns 60.
Because each person is unique, defining a healthy weight
is something that should be discussed on a case-by-case
basis with a physician. Even if a friend of the same age
and similar body type has been given a healthy weight, for
instance, this doesn't mean that's a healthy weight for all
people of that age and body type. Past health history and
physical activity level are significant factors in
determining a healthy weight, too.
Make dietary changes. To some, the thought of
changing their diet is an unwelcome one. Because food is
such a big part of most people's lives, this is often seen as
the most difficult lifestyle change to make. However, a
series of subtle changes as opposed to a massive dietary
overhaul can do the trick.
While many people eat healthily during their three meals
per day, it's the in-between meals hours where diet often
suffers the most. Snacks high in saturated fat, such as
potato chips, can be very unhealthy. By switching snacks
to a serving of fruit or vegetables, men and women can
ensure they're getting their recommended servings each
day, and may be reducing the risk of cancer and other
chronic diseases as a result. The majority of fruits and
vegetables are low in fat and calories, and also provide
essential vitamins and minerals. For those unsure of how
much fruit or vegetables they should be eating each day,
the CDC offers a fruits and vegetables calculator on its
Web site at www.cdc.gov.
Be more active. Becoming more physically active is
something many adults need to do. The CDC estimates
that 50 percent of American men and women do not get
enough physical activity to provide health benefits.
Physicians recommend 30 minutes of daily, moderate
physical exercise. While finding the time each day can be
a commitment, 30 minutes, the length of a typical
television sitcom, really is not much time at all.


Daily exercise is a valuable tool for men and women looking to get
and stay healthier.

Those who haven't been active in a while need to ease back into being
physically active, perhaps starting with a daily walk on flat ground and
then gradually tailoring a routine that is more challenging and beneficial
as the body acclimates itself to daily activity. Again, because every
person is unique, it's best to consult a physician before beginning any
new exercise routine.
Recognize and deal with stress. Stress can be very harmful to all
men and women. The negative side effects of stress are both physical
and mental. Stress can lead to excess weight gain, which, as previously
mentioned, can increase the likelihood of heart disease, stroke, high
blood pressure, and diabetes. Mentally, excess stress affects mood,
which can negatively impact relationships with friends, family and
coworkers.
While stress is a fact of life for most, both in their professional and
private lives, it's important to recognize that stress can be very
detrimental. Though there are no guaranteed and foolproof ways to
reduce and manage stress, research has shown that exercise has proven
a reliable source of stress relief for many people.

More than 70 countries across the globe now have some form of freedom
of information legislation. Such laws vary by country, but typically
provide public access to government information or records. In the United
States, the Freedom of Information Act became law in 1966 under then-
President Lyndon Johnson. The Act was then updated with the Electronic
Freedom of Information Act amendments under President Bill Clinton in
1996. While the act only applied to federal agencies, all of the states and
territories have statutes requiring the disclosure of information by state and
local governments. The United Kingdom enacted their own Freedom of
Information Act in 2000, while Canada's Access to Information Act in
1983 allowed citizens access to government-controlled information. The
trailblazer for freedom of information legislation is believed to be Sweden,
who enacted their Freedom of the Press Act in 1766, though the act at that
time was far more limited that the more open acts of today, including
since-updated laws in Sweden. 436148-F
