 Notes
Review: The Suwannee Democrat LCCN: sn95026787 is one of the oldest continuously published weeklies in the State of Florida. It began publishing in 1884 in the city of Live Oak (FL). Noting the shifting demographics of Florida in the 20th century, in 1906, one observes that Live Oak was the fifth largest city in Florida, preceded only by Jacksonville, Pensacola, Tampa, and Key West. The Suwannee Democrat enjoyed a corresponding reputation as a journalistic leader in early 20th century Florida. For approximately two years, from 1906 through 1907, the weekly Suwannee Democrat was supplemented by the Live Oak (FL) Daily Democrat LCCN: sn95026788. The Suwannee Democrat has won numerous awards from the Florida Press Association, both as in the weekly category and for the quality of its agricultural reporting. In its early days, the Suwannee Democrat reported a Democrat Party affiliation. The newspaper's first editor hid under an assumed name when he was suspected of murder. A deathbed confession by the actual perpetrator allowed him to resume his true identity: F.R. McCormack. Very little else, however, is known of F.R. McCormack. Fires have taken their toll on the Suwannee Democrat. In 1906, a disgruntled printer left by railroad on the night that its offices burned to the ground. Arson again in October 1995, destroyed a historic block of Live Oak's downtown and the newspaper's office was one of the casualties. Lost in the fire were last-known issues of the Suwannee Democrat dating from 1897 through 1900. The issues had just been scheduled for preservation microfilming under the auspices of the U.S. Newspaper Program, when they were destroyed. The event was bitterly regretted and served to show the precariousness of local newspaper archives. Live Oak is the seat of Suwannee County (FL) government. Suwannee County is surrounded on three sides by the Suwannee River. And, its karst topography gives the area an abundance of natural springs and fresh water. Industries of the region, particularly during the early days of the Suwannee Democrat, were lumber, turpentine and cotton. Live Oak was known for its grist and lumber mills. The character of these industries and the regional economy survived through the 1920s, when economic down-turn resulted in change. Change was already being seen as early as 1910, when the poultry underwent industrialization in the county. Poultry took such a strong foothold in Suwannee County that even front yards were cultivated for the production of feed grains. Agriculture and other land-based industries, particularly forestry and related industries, were also seeing change with the establishment of nurseries supplying hybrid bulbs and plants to markets. The Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression brought change and growth to a halt. With recovery, the region became semi-rural. Florida's demographic shifts, both that following World War II and the completion of the Interstate Highway System initiated by Governor Bryant in the 1960s, have marked a trend of increasing urbanization in Suwannee County.--E.

he said Monday.
S"I'd like the chance
Boatright to pursue other career
opportunities and
goals," said Boatright,
who is completing his first term as superin-
tendenf.
Boatright didn't elaborate on his plans.
"It's just a little preliminary," he said. "I'm
going to take my time and consider my op-
tions."
However, he said he did not anticipate tak-


ing a different job within the school district.
And he said he plans to continue living in
Suwannee County.
"I've had a wonderful four years," Boa-
tright said. "It's been an honor and a privi-
lege to serve the students, faculty and staff of
our district."
SBoatright said he had "no regrets at all"
concerning his tenure as superintendent.
"I can step down and be confident our dis-

Police presence helps

maintain calm campus
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

Violence which had been feared for
Friday at Suwannee High failed to ma-
terialize and the school remains calm in
the wake of recent'campus unrest, Prin-
cipal Dawn Lamb said Monday. Five
hundred to 600 students stayed home
Friday, said Assistant Principal Jim
Simpson, compared with an average ab-
sentee rate. of 100-125. Total enrollment
at Suwannee High is about 1,200.
Trouble began at the school on April
25,when three students beat up a fourth,
reportedly over a girl. A brawl ensued
later that night in the parking lot of
Fred's department store on Soith Ohio
Avenue. Several students were cut, one
with an object another student described
as a box cutter.
A 17-year-old male badly injured'in
the fight has been released from the
hospital and is recovering at home,
Sheriff Tony Cameron said Monday.
However, the student - who suffered a
severe wound to his right elbow - may
lose partial use of his arm, Cameron

Details unclear in death

A robbery attempt gone wrong, say police


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

Authorities have yet to
reveal details of an appar-
ent failed robbery attempt
that led to the death of one
man and the arrest of an-
other for second-degree
murder.
Melvin Henry Hicks, 45,
of 826 SW 8th Street, Live


Oak, was arrested and
charged with killing
Laborn Allen, 21, of 507
McGee Street, Live Oak,
after Allen and another per-
son apparently tried to rob
Hicks' residence on April
29.
Reports indicate that
Allen and the other individ-
ual ran from the residence.
Hicks chased Allen and *


tackled him to the ground,
after which he reportedly
beat him with a baseball
bat. Hicks was found
standing over Allen about
50 yards from the resi-
dence.
The identity of the other
suspect is unknown, but

Tax swap proposal draws


fire from school officials


Would cut property

taxes by 25 percent

By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

Local school officials reacted sharply
to a proposal by the Taxation and Bud-
get Reform Commission to eliminate the
portion of property taxes that funds pub-
lic schools in exchange for a one-cent
hike in the sales tax. The proposed con-
stitutional amendment, soon to be
known as Amendment 5, would elimi-
nate up to 25 percent of property taxes.
School board chairperson Julie Ulmer
said she is not against tax reform but
questions the timing. "I'm not saying
tax reform should not be looked at but
in these economic times we should hold
the line," she said. "If you continue to
push tax cuts it makes things worse."
Suwannee County Schools are already
looking at $2 million in cuts for next
year.
Superintendent of Schools Walter
Boatright says the tax swap would harm
local schools.
"It is a means to cover up how little
the state had to work with," he said in a
written statement. "The impact of the
proposed tax swap will be very, very
painful for Suwanner District Schools.
Suwannee District Schools' funding was

Suwannee County Small
Farmer's Market open
Suwannee County Small Farmer's Mar-
ket will be open from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. (or
sold out), Wednesdays only, May 7 thru
most of July at 208 Ohio Avenue North,
Live Oak. The location will be the same
as last year, on the east end (loading dock)
of the Suwannee County Museum. You
can turn off Ohio Avenue (US 129 North)
on Haines Street. The farmer's market will
honor both W.I.C. and Senior Farmer's
Market Nutrition Coupons, as well as cash


cut last year, and again this year. We
made it work last year and will find a
way to make it work this year. In terms
of long term needs, however, there must
be other alternatives of funding re-
searched and found."
The tax-swap measure was conceived
by a 25-member commission that meets
every 20 years to propose ways of im-
proving the state's economy. After a se-
ries of heated debates, the commission
approved the amendment by an 18-7
vote. Seventeen votes are required to
place a proposed measure on the ballot.
Under state law, public schools are
funded in part by property taxes. The
commission estimates that eliminating
these taxes would cut roughly $9 billion
from schools statewide.
Adding a penny to the sales tax would
provide about $4 billion. No one sees
to know where the extra $5 billion will
come from, though the commission has
recommended the state consider repeal-
ing sales tax exemptions and reducing
spending. The commission also noted
that school districts and local govern-
ments can raise millage rates to make up
for losses.
The proposed amendment would cap
annual assessment hikes for non-home-
steaded property at five percent. The
current cap is 10 percent.
The measure, if approved by 60 per-
cent of voters, would take effect on Jan.
1, 2010.

I recently attended a special training seminar for Rotary
Club presidents-elect. I met so many wonderful
people all with one goal. That goal is service to
others. That service can be local service, like our
club does each year by hosting a Christmas party
at the Advent Christian Village including children
and seniors, like we do each year when we
present scholarships to deserving Suwannee
High School seniors and even when we serve
food at the Boys Ranch open house each year.
But it can be so much more and so far
reaching. Did you know Rotary maintains the
PolioPlus Fund, which supports Rotary's dream of
a polio-free world? Did you know Rotary
provides Matching Grants which assist
Rotary clubs and districts in carrying
out humanitarian projects with clubs
in other countries? There is so
much more you can learn
about Rotary and from Rotary.
If you are interested in
becoming a member of this
service organization
contact Rotary Club of Live
Oak President Tim Carver
at 362-1802 or me, Myra
Regan, publisher of the
Suwannee Democrat at
362-1734. I'm proud to
wear the Rotary emblem.

Frank and Mary Jean Fantigrassi
May 3, 1948
After three months, I asked her to marry me. She said
yes! We married May 3 1948 in Phenix City, Ala.
They all said it wouldn't last, but we fooled them all.
I am from northern New York and she is from South
Miami, with blond hair and blue eyes. I am Italian,. She
is Irish. I am Catholic. She is Baptist. Nothing in com-
mon exceptlove. It was love at first sight and still going
strong 60 years later. A kiss good morning, a kiss when I
leave home, a kiss when I return home and a kiss when
we say goodnight.
We have three great children, Tony, Frank and Bonnie.
We are blessed to have four grandchildren and three
great-grandchildren and a very special guardian angel,
Tonya Lee.
We celebrated Saturday, May 3 with a family barbecue.

It starts


in parks

Here's what's been hap-
pening at Suwannee Parks
and Recreation.
The city has announced it
will use part of a $6 mil-
lion-plus grant - assuming
the money comes through -
to buy the Crapps estate on
Helvenston Street, which it
will then turn over to the
rec department for use as a
park and cultural center.
Parks and Recreationi Direc-
tor Greg Scott says the
mansion will house an art
gallery and be available for
weddings and other special
events as well.
Also, the long-awaited
skateboard parks are com-
ing soon. Construction
could begin next month on
facilities at Hale Park and
the First Federal Sportsplex.
Again, funding for the
project comes from state
grants - more than
$100,000 worth.
Our rec department serves
us well, with year-round
sports leagues for kids and
programs for adults and
families as well. Come sum-
mer, things will really liven
up. Summer Day Camp runs
June 9 through August 8.
For $65 a week, kids will
swim, play sports, do crafts
and have fun in ways that
only kids can.
Folks complain (ourselves
included) about government
waste, inefficiency and in-
competence. In our view,
Suwannee Parks and Recre-
ation is a good example of
taxpayers' money well
spent. Good job, rec depart-
ment.


Please address letters to:

Please include your full name, address and daytime
phone number. We ask this so we can verify your let-
ter and discuss any questions about it with you.


I am sure by now everyone
knows that the last month or so has
been extremely busy for the Live
Oak Police Department. Summer is
approaching fast, the kids are
buzzing with excitement sensing
that school is almost over, and sum-
mer vacations are being planned
and anticipated. I am pleased to an-
nounce that tomorrow, Thursday,
May 8, the Live Oak Police Depart- BY BUDD
ment will graduate the first "Teen
Academy." It is has been an experi-
ence to say the least, but it has definitely been rewarding
for the teens, the instructors and volunteers, and has laid the
groundwork for future teen academies.
I want to express my thanks to the State Attorney's Of-
fice, the Public Defender's Office, Suwannee County Sher-
iff's Office, F.B.I, Secret Service, Suwannee County judges
and all volunteers that took part in this eight-week program.
David Shapiro, Live Oak Police community service officer,
and Erica Elliott, victim advocate with LOPD, were the
leaders of this academy and deserve a huge "Thank You."
There are many other projects that we are currently plan-
ning and excited about. The police department will be ac-
cepting applications for the upcoming Citizens Police Acad-
emy. The tentative start date will be July 1. If anyone is in-


C


Shief' terested please contact the police
h1ief S department for an application and

Contact person for this event also.
-,. :. & Myself, Captain Joe Daly and the
patrol officers are starting our sec-
ond tour of duty reading about
WILLIAMS "bullying" to the first graders and
are getting some good feedback
from the students and teachers. I
feel like this venture has been a great success.
While I am on the subject of school kids, Mrs. Zimmer-
man's class will be at the station tomorrow to have lunch
and meet some of the local animated mascots. I am hoping
to have Smokey Bear, McGruff the Crime Dog, Sparky the
firedog and Vince and Larry the crash test dummies. It
should be a day of fun for all.
I also want to thank all of the officers that work at the
Live Oak Police Department for their dedication and enthu-
siasm to serve the citizens of Live Oak. It is truly a blessing
to have such a great staff that is dedicated to the great pro-
fession of law enforcement. As always if you have any con-
cerns or complaints please feel free to contact the police de-
partment at 386-362-7463.

OPINION


Environmentalists' wild predictions


Now that another Earth Day has
come and gone, let's look at some
environmentalist predictions that
they would prefer we forget. I.
At the first Earth Day celebra-
tion, in 1969, environmentalist
Nigel Calder warned, "The threat of
a new ice age must now stand
alongside nuclear war as a likely
source of wholesale death and mis-
ery for mankind." C.C. Wallen of BY WALT
the World Meteorological Organi-
zation said, "The cooling since
1940 has been large enough and consistent enough that it
will not soon be reversed." In 1968, Professor Paul Ehrlich,
Vice President Gore's hero and mentor, predicted there
would be a major food shortage in the U.S. and "in the
1970s ... hundreds of millions of people are going to starve
to death." Ehrlich forecasted that 65 million Americans
would die of starvation between 1980 and 1989, and by
1999 the U.S. population would have declined to 22.6 mil-
lion. Ehrlich's predictions about England were gloomier:
"If I were a gambler, I would take even money that Eng-
land will not exist in the year 2000."
In 1972, a report was written for the Club of Rome
warning the world would run out of gold by 1981, mercury
and silver by 1985, tin by 1987 and petroleum, copper, lead
and natural, gas by 1992. Gordon Taylor, in his 1970 book
"The Doomsday Book," said Americans were using 50 per-
cent of the world's resources and "by 2000 they [Ameri-
cans] will, if permitted, be using all of them." In 1975, the
Environmental Fund took out full-page ads warning, "The
World as we know it will likely be ruined by the year
2000."
Harvard University biologist George Wald in 1970
warned, "... civilization will end within 15 or 30 years un-
less immediate action is taken against problems facing
mankind." That was the same year that Sen. Gaylord Nel-
son warned, in Look Magazine, that by 1995 "... some-
where between 75 and 85 percent of all the species of liv-
ing animals will be extinct."
It's not just latter-day doomsayers who have been wrong;
doomsayers have always been wrong. In 1885, the U.S.


AGeological Survey announced
there was "little or no chance" of
IN ORITY oil being discovered in California,
and a few years later they said the
'VEW same about Kansas and Texas. In
S1939, the U.S. Department of the
Interior said American oil sup-.
plies would last only another 13
years. In 1949, the Secretary of
S2008 Creators Syndicate the Interior said the end of U.S.
ER WILLIAMS oil supplies was in sight. Having
learned nothing from its earlier
erroneous claims, in 1974 the
U.S. Geological Survey advised us that the U.S. had only a
10-year supply of natural gas. The fact of the matter, ac-
cording to the American Gas Association, there's a 1,000 to
2,500 year supply.
Here are my questions: In 1970, when environmentalists
were making predictions of manmade global cooling and
the threat of an ice age and millions of Americans starving
to death, what kind of government policy should we have
undertaken to prevent such a calamity? When Ehrlich pre-
dicted that England would not exist in the year 2000, what
steps should the British Parliament have taken in 1970 to
prevent such a dire outcome? In 1939, when the U.S. De-
partment of the Interior warned that we only had oil sup-
plies for another 13 years, what actions should President
Roosevelt have taken? Finally, what makes us think that
environmental alarmism is any more correct now that they
have switched their tune to manmade global warming?
Here are a few facts: Over 95 percent of the greenhouse
effect is the result of water vapor in Earth's atmosphere.
Without the greenhouse effect, Earth's average temperature
would be zero degrees Fahrenheit. Most climate change is
a result of the orbital eccentricities of Earth and variations
in the sun's output. On top of that, natural wetlands pro-
duce more greenhouse gas contributions annually than all
human sources combined.

you should consider for the safe
return of your pets should it

33 Vaccination and
Identification." The code states
that "It shall be unlawful to keep
or maintain any animal over four
months of age, unless such
animal has been vaccinated by a
licensed veterinarian with an
anti-rabies vaccine. Any
vaccinated animal shall be
tagged with evidence of
such vaccination." The
same ordinance requires
that "All dogs and cats in
the county shall wear a
properly fitted collar with
either a current ID tag or a
current ID plate, securely
attached to the collar,
containing the owner's
name, address and phone
number, including the area
code. The collar shall be
placed on the animal so as
not to interfere with the
animal's breathing. An
imbedded data-chip, tattoo,
or some other form of
identification, may be used Wi

breakdown. Another bag
held a cook stove, a kettle
and food rations. Another


bag housed a tent, sleeping
bag and a mat. Another
bag held some clothes.
"The gear itself is about
50 pounds," Altenburg


said. "It would be a whole
lot easier doing this with-
out it."
Altenburg travels alone,
with no one to help carry
his gear or set up camp.
"One of the most diffi-
cult tasks in preparing for
an event like this is plan-
ning a route, knowing
where you can stay, know-
ing where the bike repair
shops are, all that stuff,"
he said.
Altenburg is following a
map provided by Adven-
ture Cycling Association, a
group which promotes
travel by cycle. The map
lists parks and hotels, the
nearest bike shops and the
distance from one location
to another.
Altenburg learned about
Charity: Water from a
friend who climbed Mount
Kilimanjaro to benefit resi-


-


dents of southern Africa
through a program created
by the organization.
Altenburg's efforts will
benefit the people of
Uganda.
Altenburg's goal is to
raise $23,780 - $10 per
mile of the trip. That sum
will provide clean water
for 2,500 people in need
and construct four clean-
water systems in Uganda.
"Mothers are facing de-
cisions with what to do -
do they let their child die
of thirst or do they give
them what they know is
not healthy water," he said.
"They're filling glasses
with brown water that you
and I would never drink."
Altenburg said support-
ing the organization has
made him realize how
those of us in developed
nations sometimes take our

The magistrate will
make a recommendation
as early as next Monday
on three proposals involv-
ing retiree health insur-
ance, teacher planning
time and teacher partici-
pation in activities beyond
the normal school day.
"We were able to re-
solve numerous items be-
fore we met with the spe-
cial magistrate," said Jer-
ry Copeland, chief nego-
tiator for the school dis-
trict. "It was a very pleas-


ant day."
If the school board and
union accept the recom-
mendation, employees
will vote to ratify or reject
the tentative agreement. If
either party rejects the
recommendation in whole
or in part, the issues will
go before the school
board for final determina-
tion.
"It's not likely the
union will challenge any-
thing from the magis-
trate," said George
Bowen, chief negotiator
for the union.

said. Cameron said he
was told by members of
the boy's family that he
would have to undergo
several surgeries in hopes
of restoring use of the
arm.
On April 29, four stu-
dents with ties to those
involved in the April 25
incident got into an argu-
ment in the school cafete-
ria.
Since then things have
been calm. "Everything
has ran smoothly for a
week or so with no inci-
dents," Lamb said.


Lamb noted that all stu-
dents involved in the vio-
lence were arrested and
remain on out-of-school
suspension.
Rumors circulated
Thursday that more vio-
lence might erupt Friday
at the school,
but Cameron said all
was peaceful. "We had of-
ficers there on and off
throughout the day moni-
toring the situation,"
Cameron said.
"Everything has been
quiet with the support of
the sheriff's office and the
Live Oak Police Depart-
inent," Lamb said.


Details unclear in death


Continued From Page 1A

Buddy Williams said his
department has leads.
"We have several sus-
pects and are interviewing
them now and hope to
have more information
forthcoming," he said
Tuesday.
Assistant State Attorney
Craig C. Jacobsen, who is
prosecuting the case, said
the murder charge against


Hicks was based on the
evidence found at the
scene.
"The charge was based
on evidence brought about
through a thorough inves-
tigation by the (Live Oak)
police department and the
FDLE crime labs," he
said.
Jacobsen said he could
not reveal further details
until the investigation was
complete.

Medications to Improve Weight Loss
Obesity is a medical term that refers to excessive amounts of body
fat. Body mass index (BMI) is a measurement that is used to
categorize persons as either overweight or obese. This measure is
calculated by a mathematical equation involving both height and
weight. For adults, a. BMI above 25 generally refers to being
overweight, while a BMI above 30 refers to obesity. Excessive
amounts of body fat may increase the risk of developing medical
conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes. While genetics
and hormonal changes may play a role in body weight, overweight
and obesity are likely related to an imbalance between calories
consumed and calories expended by the individual.
While lifestyle changes, such as increased physical activity and
dietary modifications, play a significant role in weight loss, some
individuals may be candidates for other treatment options when
weight loss does not occur as expected. Medications available with a
prescription for long-term weight loss include sibutramine (Meridia)
and orlistat (Xenical). Sibutramine works by decreasing the time to
feeling full after eating. Orlistat prevents the absorption of fat in the
intestines. Orlistat (Alli) is also now available over-the-counter as a
lower strength than prescription strength Xenical. 444378-F

"We even use our drink-
ing water for our grass and
our lawns," he said. "The
average American uses
about 150 gallons a day,
whereas people in the
countries we're talking
about are lucky if they can
find five gallons for them
and their family."
Altenburg quit his job as
a salesman two years ago
to do "something differ-
ent," as he described it.
First he went to Mexico
and studied Spanish. Then
he left for Europe.
"Before heading back to
work I wanted to do some-
thing here in the U.S. and I
wanted it to benefit some
organization that could re-
ally use the money," he
said.
In Gainesville Altenburg


met another cyclist named
Frank. Frank asked Al-
tenburg why he was mak-
ing the trip.
'I said to him I knew
when I was working as
much as I was there had to
be something more ... that
I needed at this time in my
life to step aside and find
it and enjoy it because tim-
ing is everything and I
may not get this opportuni-
ty again," he said. "Frank's
eyes lit up and he said,
'Most people don't recog-
nize that until they're my
age - 65.'"

While watching the game, a

The secret of swimbaits

I don't know how many of
you caught the broadcast of
the Bassmasters Elite Series
tournament at Lake Amistad
on ESPN recently but several
of the pros were catching
monster bass on swimbaits.
Swimbaits aren't really new to
bass fishing; they' ve just been
kept secret for so many years
that until recently they haven't
gained a lot of attention.
Swimbaits run the gamut from
3 inches to more than a foot
long and come in a plethora of
Dock Talk colors. What is amazing is

By Clayton Kerr
The Live Oak Learners 4-H club celebrated Ag
Literacy Day with some of the students of Suwannee
Elementary School on April 10. Members of Live Oak
Learners read educational books about Florida farms to
12 classes of second and third grade students. Ag
Literacy Day is an annual event sponsored by Ag in the
Classroom and the Florida Department of Agriculture.
This event is held each spring in which industry
representatives and volunteers read a designated
children's book to elementary students. The book is
designed to help students understand the importance of
agriculture in the state of Florida. The book reminds
students that our food doesn't come from the grocery
store, but from farms, ranches, dairies and more.
After reading the book "These Florda Farms" to the
students, the Live Oak Learners club members shared
information about agricultural products grown in
Suwannee County. The classes were invited to go
outside to pet several farm animals brought by club
members. The Horvath family brought a I 1/2-year-old
Maine/Angus cow and her 4-month-old calf. They also
brought a 7 1/2-month-old Rainbow cross hen named
Ginger. The Sykes family brought a 9-month-old Dutch
rabbit named Mischief.
Live Oak Learners is a home school 4-H club that
meets the first Thursday of every month at the
Suwtannec Countv Erteinsion Office at I p.m. For more
information about this club, please contact Clayton
Kerr at 386-397-2692.

SPORTS COMMENTARY





Dangerous sports


Sportabout

By Tom Daniels


Continued From Page 1B

Hudson and Howie Kendrick all
suffer some degree of this infirmity.
Football has caused a few player
deaths and permanent injury but


certainly not in the same class as
motor racing. Take your pick: cars,
boats, motorcycles, etc. If it's got a
motor there is inherent danger. I have
personally lost a battle or two with a
vacuum cleaner belt. Speaking of
belts, certainly martial arts and boxing
are extremely dangerous.
Now you may be wondering where
all this is going. A very dangerous


sport we never think of? How about
horse racing? Surely jockeys are hurt
from time to time, but how about the
horse. This past weekend the fastest
two minutes in sports, the Kentucky
Derby, suffered a tragedy. Eight
Belles, a filly, broke both ankles and
was immediately euthanized. You
don't think of violence in terms of
horse racing but these fine-tuned


animals either pull up or are violently
damaged when a mishap occurs. The
death of this animal will be
investigated by every organization
with initials in the USA. None of this
will bring her back but may be we
will find out something to save the
next. After all, Secretariat was voted
the 50th best athlete of the 20th
century.

The secret of swimbaits


Dock Talk
Damon Wooley

Continued From Page 1B

how real some of them actually
look. What is even more
amazing is how much they cost.
Depending on which brand and
style swimbait you may want to
try, you can expect to spend
anywhere from 5 bucks for five
baits or 100 bucks for one.
That's right - a crisp one
hundred dollar bill for one
lure! Sometimes money is
no object for a die-hard
tournament fisherman who
is on the quest to find the
magic lure, though.
After having watched
and read about these
monster catches that giant
swimbaits were
responsible for I decided
that I needed to give them
a try. I realized, of course
that my quest to record my
first monster catch on a
giant swimbait would not
be easy, for several
reasons. First and foremost
was the fact that Florida
strain bass are completely
different than the strain
that the pros were
targeting in Texas and
California. Secondly, the
pros were using swimbaits
to catch those monsters in
big lakes that had large
populations of huge bass.
Third, swimbaits are
limited in their
applications because they
work best in deep clear
impoundments. Last, big
swimbaits are not a high-
percentage lure. In other
words, you could work
your tail off all day
chucking and winding a
huge 3-5 oz. lure for only
one strike and the chances
are good that even if that
giant does eat your
swimbait, getting it in the
boat is a whole different
story!
I realized that the deck
was stacked against me
when I embarked on my
quest, though I felt that I
had a pretty good plan in
place that would give me
the best shot of reaching
my goal to catch a lunker
bass on a monster size
swimbait. Having guided
for several,years at
Bienville Plantation I
knew that Lake 14 offered
the best chance to match
the clear trophy infested
waters of the west. I
logged onto
tacklewarehouse.com and
ordered up several life-
sized swimbaits that
imitated bluegill, threadfin
shad and of course, a
golden shiner. The baits
were definitely not cheap,
but I knew that they would
be worth it if I could
unlock the swimbait
secrets of Lake 14.
After a long fruitless
morning of flinging the
oversized prey-imitating
hunks of plastic in and
around the pristine waters
of Lake 14 recently I
finally hit pay dirt. The
strike wasn't the arm-
jarring jolt that I expected,
though. It was more of a
light tick followed by just
dead weight. A lot of dead
weight! I struggled for
what seemed like several
minutes to wrestle the
beast to the surface and
was certain that I would
loose it before I was able
to record my first
swimbait-caught trophy
largemouth. Finally, I
subdued the beast and was


bringing it up to the
surface to try and get my
hands in her mouth. Just
as I knelt down and
reached over the gunwale I
laid my eyes on my trophy, pser
which had annihilated my assen
$20 dollar swimbait. It at t3
was well over ten pounds; ae not
reserve
I guessed even the upper o0 1M
teens! Only problem was - 2(
my trophy was nothing
more than a giant soft-
shell turtle! So much for


swimbaits.
Just a reminder, the
Suwannee River Bassmasters
will fish out of Clay Landing on
Saturday, May 10 from safe
light to 3:30 p.m. This is the
newly formed group of anglers
that include the members of the
North Florida Bassmasters and
the Trenton Bassmasters.
Anyone can join the SRBM for
a membership fee of $30. The
entry fee for the tournament is
$60 and all tournaments are 100
percent payback.

Did you know that we also provide a sense of
community by allowing people to connect who
might not otherwise have the opportunity?
People meet friends in parks - sometimes
lifelong friendships are formed. Generation gaps
are bridged when park attendees discover what
they have in common. Community organizations
come together to help others and sense of pride is
seen in those who feel the satisfaction of living in
this community. Come on out to the parks. You
never know what old friend you might run into or

How to hide your tracks


By making small and seemingly insignificant
changes in daily routines people can not
only reduce the size of their carbon
footprint, but also realize significant savings
in their energy costs.


Are you




leaving




a carbon




footprint?


Whether you are making a cup of
coffee, driving to the grocery store,
mowing the yard, taking a shower or even
opening the refrigerator door, you are
leaving a trail that tells a lot about your
life.
Just about all activities that use energy
to almost any degree are creating
individual carbon footprints.
A carbon footprint is a measure of the
amount of carbon dioxide and other
greenhouse gases that are released into
the atmosphere as people go about their
routine daily activities.
By making small and seemingly
insignificant changes in daily routines
people can not only reduce the size of
their carbon footprint, but also realize
significant savings in their energy costs.
There are a number of web sites that
have calculators that enable people to
determine how much energy they
consume and suggestions on how to
reduce the size of their carbon footprint.
Some suggestions involve significant
lifestyle changes ranging from trading in
an SUV for a hybrid or riding a bicycle to
work. Others are more practical and
simple such as turning the home
thermostat down a degree or two.
Easy to follow tips that most people
can follow without too much effort
include:
. Air conditioning and heating: By
simply turning the air conditioning up a
couple of degrees in the summer and the


heating sysTems down in the winter, a
consumer can save several hundred
dollars.
. Clothes dryer, oven and dishwasher:
Wait until the sun goes down in the
summer months to run these appliances
so they don't put more strain on the air
conditioner. In the winter months, run
them when the house is the coolest.
. Shower: Install a low flow
showerhead and take shorter showers to
reduce the amount of water used. Taking
a shower instead of a bath saves
considerable amounts of water..
. Refrigerator: Place the refrigerator in
a cool place and always let hot food cool
off before placing it inside. For greater
efficiency keep coils clean and defrost it
on a regular basis if necessary.
. Electronic devices: Unplug those that
aren't being used such as cell phone
chargers, hair dryers, coffee pots,
computers, etc. as they use electricity just
by being plugged in.
. Water heater: Reducing the
temperature of a Water heater from 140
degrees F to 120 degrees F not only saves
mopey but may prevent scalding. Insulate
the hot water heater to save even more.
Consumers can access the Energy
Wizard at www.EnergyWizard.info to
read about a range of topics from
conservation and new technologies to
generators and tax incentives; ask energy
related questions; or read the latest
Energy Wizard columns.

Humane Society really ap-
preciates donations; it
couldn't operate without
them. Donations are the
heart and soul of its thrift. ,-
shop income. Please con-
sider taking them dona-
tions 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 John-
son's Appliance/Radio
Shack.
Lee: Recycling bins are
located at the shelter at
1156 SE Bisbee Loop,
Madison (just South of
Lee) for newspapers, cata-
logs, paper, magazines and
broken down cardboard.
All the money goes to help
the homeless animals.
SPAYING AND
NEUTERING:
Experts say the most im-
portant 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 oper-
ation, so they aren't scared
or in pain.
SSpaying 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.
FEATURED ANIMALS

LEGAL SERVICES - f,
DIRECTORY

5d 5/oa KnOw ?
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

Q: One of my , '
favorite
shows is
"Two and a
Half Men."
Can you tell
me if the
stars sing the
theme song?
-- F.L., viae-
mail
A: The
opening of
the popular
CBS sitcom,
starring
Charlie
Sheen, Jon CharlieSheen
Cryer and
Angus T.
Jones, features the stars lip-syncing the theme song. The
song is, in fact, sung by studio singers -- one of.whom is
actress/voice-over artist Elizabeth (E.G.) Daily. Her prolific
resume includes. "Rugrats," "Happy Feet," "Babe: Pig in the
City" and 'The Powerpuff Girls." She also co-starred in
"Pee-Wee's Big Adventure," "Lorenzo's Oil" and "Dogfight."

Q: I was so sad when I heard that Patrick Swayze was
battling pancreatic cancer. How is he doing? -- Ellen M.,
Altoona, Pa.
A: Patrick is in high spirits, and his doctor says he is
responding very well to treatment. Patrick and his wife,
Lisa, issued this joint statement to his fans recently:
"We're thrilled and grateful for the positive response
Patrick has shown toward his treatment. Also, we can't
help but feel that all the prayers, meditations and good
thoughts sent his way by everyone has made a difference.
Thank you." So, keep those positive thoughts coming.

Q: What is actor John Enos III doing these days? I loved
him as Bobby Parezi on "Melrose Place." -- Jessica M.,
Arcadia, Fla.
A: John recently completed filming a summer
blockbuster-type movie for The Hallmark Channel called
"Shark Swarm." It also stars Armand Assante, Darryl
Hannah, John Schneider and F. Murray Abraham, among
others. Look for the premiere over Memorial Day
weekend.
Enos also has been busy writing, filming and editing
funny little shorts for YouTube starring his Chihuahua.
John told me recently: "Don't you know? Chihuahuas are
the new tough-guy dog." Go to YouTube.com, search for
"John Enos Chihuahua" and watch these funny shorts.

Q: The actress who played Maryann on "Gilligan's Island"
was in a movie years ago in which she was kidnapped by

for yourself. But as you approach your
goal, you might want to slow down a bit

situation and make changes while you
can.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Patience
continues to be a virtue for the Divine
Bovine. So as eager as you might be to
get things moving, remember that time is
on your side. Make good use of it.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) There's a
wee bit of uncertainty in the early part of
the week. But things clear up as more
facts come to light. Spend quality time
this weekend with family and friends.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) An old
friend's return could open new
possibilities for both of you. But don't let
yourself be rushed into anything. There
could be some factors you haven't yet
explored.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) This week
offers a challenge you're raring to take
on. And while eager to get started, do so
slowly so that you can focus those sharp

Indians and lived with them for a while. A young chief
loved her, and I believe she loved him. At the end, he let
her go. Do you know the name of the movie? Is it on
video? -- Josephine R.
A: The movie you're thinking of is "Winterhawk." In
addition to Dawn Wells, the 1975 film starred Leif
Erickson, Michael Dante, Woody Strode and Denver Pyle.
The movie was ahead of its time in that Native Americans
weren't portrayed simply as "the bad guys," like in so
many previous Westerns.
In the movie, Chief Winterhawk (Dante) is double-crossed
by white traders while trying to make a deal for medicine
for smallpox. In retaliation, he takes hostages, one of
whom is Clayanna Finley (Wells), in order to negotiate for
the medicine. Throughout their ordeal, they do indeed fall
in love, as Clayanna begins to understand and respect
Winterhawk's beliefs, spirituality and values. "Winterhawk"
is available on VHS tape.

prove to be especially difficult.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Your ability to tackle even the most
intricate details of a project is likely to
impress some very important people. A
relative shares news later this week.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) The Archer's aim might be
focused on the big picture this week, but
don't overlook checking for those details
you might have missed.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January
19) You might feel awkward asking for
assistance, but who would refuse the
charming Goat's request? Do it, then go
ahead and enjoy a musical weekend.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18)
Pour some cold water on that simmering
misunderstanding before it boils over.
The sooner things settle, the sooner you
can move ahead with your plans.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
You're in a highly productive period,
which you feel can go on forever. But you
could be courting exhaustion. Take time
out to relax and restore your energies.

BORN THIS WEEK: You can combine a
sense of adventure with a penchant for
practicality. Have you considered a travel-
related field?

regularly. Also, wash their bedding frequently.
* Wash your own bedding, too. The family pet isn't the only one who might
have a bed that's contributing to poor indoor air quality. If a human's bed
linens aren't washed frequently (preferably in hot water) dust mites can begin
living in the linens. Feather pillows and bedding also attract dust mites, so
those might be something to avoid..
* Don't overwater houseplants. Houseplants represent an interesting part of
the indoor air quality discussion. Some suggestions have hinted that
houseplants can reduce levels of some chemicals in the air. However, no
evidence to fully support that notion currently exists. What is known is that
overwatering houseplants can promote the growth of microorganisms in the
air, which can affect those with allergies. To avoid this, simply water plants as
directed and make sure they're not overwatered.
* Vacuum regularly. All sorts of dust and other things such as pet hair and
dander can collect in a carpet if it's not vacuumed regularly. Anyone with a
home that has heavy traffic, both people and pets, should vacuum every other
day, if not every day. An upholstery brush should be used on all furniture as
well. Even if a home has wood floors, use a vacuum that is designed for such
floors, as dirt and other items can collect on hardwood floors as well.

FOLLOWING THE SON


By Pam Campbell

/ hen we follow the son, we will
never, ever be lost. It does not matter
how good you are, or what you do,
or how much you give to charity or
even if you go to church everyday, what really
matters is who you are following. If you are not
following Jesus, you are lost. Jesus, the son of God
left the splendor of heaven and died on the old
rugged cross just for you, so that you would not have
to be lost. John 3:16 says "For God so loved the
world that he gave his only begotten son, that
whoever believes in him will not parish but have
everlasting life." God gave his only.son to die on the
cross so that none of his children would to be lost.
When you follow Jesus, God's son, he will guide you
in the path that leads to eternal life with him.
Many times people go out hiking and they follow
the sun to find their way. You may have looked to the
sun in the sky to decide which way is north or south
yourself! There are many people that have gotten lost
in the woods, a forest, or out on the sea and they have
followed the sun to find their way home. The sun
rises in the east and sets in the west everyday, always.
Each morning we can count on the sun rising arid
bringing a new day, and each evening we know that
the same sun will set, and bring another night. The
sun rising and setting is something that happens
everywhere, no matter where you are.
Whether the weather is good, or whether things are
going great, or not so great in your life, even if you
don't know what you are going to do about
something. If everything in your life seems to
change, you can count on the sun to rise and set
everyday. That may sound amazing when you think
about it, but just think there is another son, that we
can depend on with even more assurance than
knowinggthe sun will rise and set, that is.Jesus, the
son of God, the savior of the world. When you are
outside you can follow the sun and know which way
is north, south, east or west, when you follow the
SON you will know which path to follow. You will
be following the one who is the way, the truth and the
life! John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the
truth'and the life. No one comes to the Father except
through me." The only way to find salvation is
through Jesus, he is the way,'the truth and the life.
When We follow his path we will never be lost, and
we will always have his truth and eternal life.
Remember how we talked about being able to find
what direction we are going by following the sun in
the sky? To follow Jesus, the son of God is the way to
always go in the right direction, and reach the most
important destination of all, heaven. When you find
Jesus as your savior, you should be spending time
with him, reading his word, the Bible, praying, which
is simply talking to him and worshipping him. It is
really good if you learn to not only do these things in
Church, but if you learn to take time to get alone with
Jesus and spend one on one time with him. The more
you get to know Jesus, the happier you will'be, and
you will be able to stand against the attacks of the
enemy. In the Bible it says in John 14:6 "And when
he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them,
and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice."
As you follow Jesus, you will know his voice and be
able to walk in his footsteps. Following Jesus brings
the greatest joy and peace, love greater than all other,
rewards beyond all we can ever imagine. When we
learn to follow Jesus, he will direct our steps. We see
this in the Bible in Proverbs 3:6 "In all thy ways
acknowledge him, -and he shall direct thy paths."
I am reminded of a child that wants to be like their
daddy, so they put on his big shoes and try to walk'
around in them. Obviously, the shoes are way too big
and their little feet cannot fill the shoes. There is
something very important to learn from that child
though, what they are doing is showing that they
want to be like their daddy, they want to follow in his
footsteps. We should take a lesson from the little
child, walk in our father's shoes, strive to be like the
heavenly father. The one who gave his son, Jesus to
die for our sins. There is a wonderful song called "I
Have Decided to Follow Jesus." Read the words and

Think about the words here, deciding to follow
Jesus, whether any of your friends, family or anyone
you know will follow him, you will follow him and
not turn back. The cross is before you and you leave
the world behind you; because you have truly decided
to follow Jesus and not turn back. Follow him'just as
someone would follow the sun in the sky to find the
way home, he will never lead you in the wrong path,
he is the way, the truth and the life. You can always
trust in Jesus, he loves you and will always be all that
you ever need. You can count on Jesus, God's SON!
Follow the Son!

By Pam Campbell

Have any of you kids ever gotten
lost? I bet you were scared and wanted
to find your mom or dad. Maybe you
have not been lost, maybe your puppy
or kitten was lost, I am sure that you
could not wait till it was found! Being
lost is not fun. When we follow the
son, Jesus we will never be lost! It
does not matter if you are perfect,
or what clubs you are in, or what
sports you play, or
if you are an A
student
or
popular, it
doesn't even
matter if you
go to church
all the time,
what really matters is if you
are following Jesus, the son
of God. The Bible tells us
that Jesus died on the old
rugged cross for you, so that
you will never have to be
lost. In the Bible we read in
John 3:16 "For God so loved
the world that he gave his only
begotten son that whoever
believes in him will not perish
(die) but have everlasting life."
Have you ever tried to figure
out which way is north, south,
east or west by looking at the
sun? Sometimes people go hiking
and watch the direction of the sun
to find their way. The sun always
rises in the east and sets in the west.
Every morning we can count on the
sun to rise, and every night it will set,
always. No matter where you are in
the world, or what the weather is, or
what you are doing, the sun will rise.and
set everyday. That is something that you
can always depend on. There is another
son, the son of God, you can put all
your trust in him, you can depend on
him, he is the savior of the whole world.
When you are outside you can follow
the sun and know which way is north,
south, east or west, when you follow the
SON you will know which path to
follow. You will be following the one
who is the way, the truth and the life!
John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the
way and the truth and the life. No one
comes to the Father except through me."
When we follow his path we will never
be lost. Take time to really know Jesus,
read his Bible, talk to him and worship
him. He loves it when his children
spend time with him and he will always
be there with you as you follow him.
Sometimes kids want to be like their
daddy, so they put on his big shoes and
try to walk around in them. Maybe you
did this sometime! Of course the shoes
are way too big! Most kids want to be
like their daddy, they want to follow in
his footsteps. Adults should take a
lesson from you kids and walk in our
heavenly father's shoes! God, the father,
the one who gave his son, Jesus to die
for our sins. There is a wonderful song
called "I Have Decided to Follow
Jesus." Read the words and maybe even
sing them, it is a great song to live by!

before me, the world behind
me, the cross before me. The
world behind me, the cross.

I hope that
you have truly
decided to follow
Jesus and not turn
back. You can always
trust in Jesus, he
loves you and will
always be all that
you ever need. You
can count on Jesus,
God's SON! Follow
the SON!

Dear Classified Guys,
I completely understand the useful-
ness of having a garage sale to clean
out unwanted items and make a little
spending cash at the same time.
God knows my neighbors are on
board. They have one every year
about this time. They spend over a
month gathering things from around
the house, pricing, arranging them
on categorized'tables and making
sure everything is perfect. Then they
have their sale for three days starting
on Friday, into Saturday and finish-
ing on Sunday afternoon. Who has
that kind of time to dedicate to things
they no longer want? I'm all for hav-
ing a sale, but I'm thinking of swing-
ing open the garage door one
Saturday morning and posting a sign
out front. I'm hoping to finish by din-
ner with enough time to grab
a beer and watch sports -
highlights. My wife thinks 7-
I'm crazy, but what do you
think? Is a yard sale like this
possible on short notice?

Carry: It seems you and your neigh-
bors have distinctly different opinions
about how to hold a garage sale.
Fortunately, it's possible for you both to
have great success.


- .







SDuane ",Cash
& Todd "





Cash: Your neighbors, like many
other people, find enjoyment in the
process of organizing a garage sale.
Therefore, they invest time and energy
in being thorough when putting it
together. You can still have good
results with a lot less effort, but you
may want to do slightly more than just
swing open your garage door.
Carry: One of the best things you can
do for your garage sale is to advertise.
You can't sell anything if people don't
show up. Place a classified ad or post
signs around town where appropriate.
Anything you can do to get the word out
will help. You can even make the signs
while watching your sports channel.


E,m

S 05/04/08
�2008 The Classified GuysO


Cash: As for the length of your sale,
one day can be plenty. If fact, we've had
garage sales that sell out by 2 pm on the
first day. That's enough time to watch
the whole game, not just the highlights.
Carry: Another way to make your
job even easier is to combine efforts
with your neighbors. You can either
have it on the same day or ask them to
sell your items at their sale. They may
be happy to assist if you offer to help
out for a day or buy them lunch.
Cash: If all goes well, you'll have
plenty of time to kick back and watch
sports highlights. Best of all, you'll
have some pocket change to buy a few
extra refreshments.


Down Time
In today's fast-paced world, it can
sometimes feel like leisure time no
longer exists. However over the past
40 years, men and women have actual-
ly increased their leisure time by up. to
8 hours per week, mostly due to
reduced work hours. So where does all
that extra time go? For many it's in
front of the TV, devoting over 2.5
hours every day. For every additional
hour of free time we find, we spend
half of it in front of the television.
Maybe it's time we turn it off and get
outside.
Being Neighborly
While most neighbors try to get
along, some can be a thorn in your
side. If you have a problem with your
neighbor, experts say the first step to
resolving it is to get to know them bet-
ter. Then calmly share your concern
and ask for their help in correcting it.
If the problem persists, put it in writing
along with a proposed solution. Most
of the time this is enough to resolve the
issue without incident. After all, most
people want to be neighborly.

Early Bird
My neighbor is a very frugal guy.
He's always shopping yard sales and
trying to wheel and deal on some-
thing. So when we were setting up to
have a yard sale, he couldn't resist
stopping by early to try and swindle a
deal out of us.
While my husband sorted our
things into piles, my neighbor
noticed an old electric hedge trimmer
that was set on the side. Immediately
looking for a bargain, he pointed to it
and asked my husband, "How much
for the clippers?"
After a moment of thought my hus-
band replied, "How does $5 sound?"
"That's a great deal," my neighbor
answered reaching for his wallet.
"You bet it is," my husband laughed.
"I was going to throw it away!"
(Thanks to WendyJ.)



This "huge" garage sale sounds friendly.

' Hug arage Sale.
SMuti-familY plenty for all

FAMILY FEATURES

days of the week to watching sports: As a celebrity host and one .1
People magazine's 50 Hottest Bachelors, Dave Lieberman recor.-
mends making up for too much guy time by preparing a special
date-night menu for two.
"Any guy can take a woman to a restaurant and slap down his credit card.
If you really want to impress a date, you should cook for her," says Dave.
"My secrets to creating a romantic meal include pulling in recipes that use
the flavors of the season and having the right'tools for a laid-back kitchen
that cooks. I also recommend streamlining kitchen tasks to not only maximize
time with your special someone, but also be more energy efficient."
The chill in the air makes now the perfect time to get back into the .rici hei
and make some heart-warming dishes for your lucky lady. Try starting 'a illh Duo
of Bruschettas and serving a Warm Griddle Salad that's light, but romantric s the
main course. Top off dinner with a decadent chocolate cake crowned with fresh Iruil


Three Essentials to Planning a Romantic Meal
* Don't Stress to Impress: To avoid.
food catastrophes while entertaining,
stick to what you know and don't try
to over do it with unfamiliar recipes.
If you want to try something new, have
a "rehearsal dinner" the week before.
* Top-Notch Tools: When cooking and
entertaining, it's always nice to have
tools that make the job easier. With
the Frigidaire' Precision Set" Surface
Controls, which enable precise and
accurate temperature control, and the
Frigidaire* Favorite & Keep Warm
Settings, which will digitally recall
baking settings and hold the oven tem-
perature at 1700F so you can keep your
food warm until your guest arrives, - s
entertaining is a breeze. Both appli- "
dance features are available at Lowe's.. .
* Planet Friendly Pointer: To save
time and energy in the kitchen, take
out all of your refrigerated
ingredients at the same time. Spread them out in an organized fashion, which helps
to make the cooking process more streamlined. Plus, it minimizes the number of
times you open your refrigerator door. Every time the door opens, refrigerator
energy consumption increases by 10 percent.

Warm Griddle Salad
With Chicken and Apples
Note: Frigidaire has a new feature called
the XtraZone"" oval burner, which makes
this salad extra fun to prepare. The unique
shape of this oval burner is perfect for pre-
paring food on a griddle - like the sliced
apple and onion mixture and marinated
chicken that goes into this recipe. The
burner, which can be found on certain gas
Frigidaire cooktops at Lowe's, even comes
with its own griddle.
Makes: 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound raw chicken breast
tenders
1 granny smith apple, cored and
cut into small wedges
1 cup sliced onion
2 heads romaine lettuce

erator at least 1/2 hour up to overnight.

onion slices with 1 tablespoon olive oil..
Heat griddle on stovetop on medium.
Remove chicken from marinade and dis-
pose of remaining marinade.
Grill apples and onions at one end of

side or until chicken is tender and cooked
all the way through. Cut into I-inch pieces.

end. Salt and pepper lettuce; then drizzle
with olive oil. With the lengthwise cut
side down, grill on griddle until starts to
brown and wilt, about 3 minutes.
Serve by placing 1/2 head of romaine
lettuce on each plate and topping with
chicken, apples, and onions. Drizzle with
dressing. Top with grated cheese if desired
and serve warm.

Chocolate Cake
With Fresh Berries

Prep time: 1 hour and 15 minutes
Bake time: 25 to 35 minutes
Cooling and setting: 2 to 3 hours
2 cups sugar
13/4 cups cake flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1 cup coffee, cooled to room
temperature
1/2 cup plain yogurt
4 egg whites

baking soda and salt in large bowl. In
separate bowl, combine cocoa powder

egg whites into soft peaks. With same
hand mixer, mix melted butter into dry
mixture and then add cocoa mixture until

cake pans. Bake 25 to 35 minutes or until

pouring over cake and allowing to run
down sides. Allow ganache topped cake
to sit several hours or at least 1/2 hour in
refrigerator. Carefully transfer completed
cake to serving plate using 2 spatulas.
