 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.

Get tough with your turf


EXTENSION UPDATE


By Carolyn Saft
Suwannee River Partnership
Education Coordinator/
Horticulture Agent

We are still looking for some
much needed rain for our food
crops and our landscapes.
Mother Nature has been stingy
with her rain showers, so many
of us are using supplemental
irrigation. Are we using it
wisely though? Given the
current drought conditions and
the voluntary water restrictions,
we can all do our part to
conserve water. I, for one,
would rather use our
groundwater for drinking,
personal hygiene and growing
food than for a lush lawn. The
good news is we can have a


healthy lawn and reduce our
current consumption, just by
changing a few things in our
maintenance routine.
First, determine how much
grass is really needed for
children's play areas, dog runs,
over septic tanks, in swales, for
fire protection, and parking.
Next, look at those areas where
your lawn is struggling and
consider replacing those areas
with trees, shrubs and
groundcovers. These plants
don't need to be mowed every
week and they also provide food
and shelter for native wildlife.
In addition, a 10' x 10' area of
trees, shrubs and groundcovers
will produce more oxygen than a
10' x 10' area of lawn grass.
Be sure. to select the right lawn
grass for your environmental
conditions. Ask yourself, "What
kind of soil do I have? What is
the soil pH? How much sun and
shade is there? Am I willing to
spend money on an irrigation
system? How much
maintenance time and expense
am I willing to put into the
lawn?" Use the chart to
determine what kind of grass will
do best for your needs.
There are other things we can
do to toughen up our lawn and


landscape plants for these
drought conditions. The goal is
to grow a deeper and more
extensive root system that is
better able to seek out water.

1)Turn off your automatic
sprinkler system and only irrigate
when your lawn shows signs of
wilt (bluish-gray color, leaf
blades fold in half and lawn does
not spring back when you walk
on it).

2)When applying irrigation
water, apply ?" - ?" of water each
time and then don't irrigate again
until you see the above signs of
distress. Less frequent, longer
irrigation will assist in
establishing deeper, more
extensive roots.

3)Use a rain gauge to monitor
rainfall amounts and to
determine how much irrigation
water should be applied (if any).

4)Avoid watering between
10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
Evaporation is more likely
during this time due to higher
temperatures and increased wind
speeds.

5)It is best to irrigate in the
early morning, between 4:00
a.m. and 7:00 a.m. Plants are
less susceptible to fungus if
watered at the time dew usually


forms.

6) Avoid scalping your grass
by setting your mower height at
3-4 inches for St. Augustine and
Bahia. Mowing height for
Centipede is 1 1/2 - 2 inches...
(The higher the shoot, the longer
the root) The taller grass also
helps prevent some weed seeds
from germinating.

7)Calibrate your irrigation
system so you know how long to

8)Check periodically for leaky
or broken sprinkler heads and
repair ASAP.

9)Adjust your sprinklers so
they are only watering plants and
grass not driveways, sidewalks
and houses.

Go easy on the fertilizer
especially with Centipede grass.
All of the drought conditioning
accomplished by proper
irrigation and mowing practices
can be eliminated Py excessive
nitrogen fertilizers. Excess
fertilizer increases plant shoot
growth offering a yummy buffet
for, sap feeding insects like
chinch bugs and spittlebugs.
Excessive irrigation and
fertilization also promotes the
growth of dollarweed. And
lastly, excessive fertilizer is


easily leached through our sandy
soils into our drinking water.
Leaching nitrates have a negative
impact on our local springs and
the aquatic wildlife that live in
them. Use the fertilizer chart to
see when and how often to
fertilize. Select a fertilizer that
has slow release nitrogen, it will
stay in the root zone longer.

Sixty percent of our potable
water goes to irrigating lawns
and landscapes. How much of
that water is wasted? We can all
conserve water - just give it a
try! For more information,

Postal carriers food drive nets 10,000 lbs.


The National Association of
Letter Carriers and local rural
letter carriers held their annual
national "Stamp Out Hunger"
Food Drive on Saturday, May
10, and collected 10,000
pounds of non-perishable in
Live Oak. Thank you for your
donations.
Post office employees


working with United Way to
coordinate the event were Rick
McManaway, NALC Member,
Live Oak Post Office; Steve
Tehan, Live Oak postmaster.
The food drive comes at a
crucial time of year for food
needs in our community. It
comes at a time of year when
the holiday donations are


depleted, yet the summer is
coming, and the many children
who depend on the school
lunch program are out of
school for the summer,
increasing the demands on the
agencies' food source needs.
Food collected is donated to
local agencies and churches
that have food pantries


which, in turn, make the
food available to residents in
need. Since some rural offices
were not provided with
collection bags to distribute to
their customers, food
collection was down in some
areas.
United Way of Suwannee
Valley is a community impact


and fundraising organization
which, utilizing volunteers on
all levels, identifies unmet
community needs and seeks to
alleviate those needs through
United Way of Suwannee
Valley community impact
initiatives and the funding of
affiliated health and human
service agencies.

Want to vent?


Our hotline is open

24/7.

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

I have tried to understand why people who have
yard sales are given such a hard time by city officials
but I just can't make any sense out of it. Yard sales
serve a critical need and they have lots of participa-
tion, judging by the large number of them held each
week. These sales are the best method of recycling by
far that we have and one of the few completely
American methods of supplementing income avail-
able to us. Yard sales keep money in' this community.
These sales benefit both the seller and the buyer. I
have seen yard sales shut down and many signs re-
moved. It does no good to have a yard sale - even
though you spent two days getting it set up - if you
can not advertise with signs giving directions to the
sale. I watched the signs being removed at the round-
about that were not on city property or right of way.
They were on private property and it was not done by,
the code enforcer but by another city official. Inci-
dentally, these signs were placed right next to four
political signs that are much larger than the three
square feet allowed for yard sale signs. The city
council should allow the citizens of Live Oak the op-
portunity to have'yard sales without harassment or
signhi being emonved. The. cit is not buying us.
$40,00Q yhicles. Rich people do not have yard sales.

The umpires this year have done an amazing job.
You are right - they are young - they are the young
adults who have spent many years playing ball for the
very same rec department that they now umpire for.
These young adults come to the park and umpire in
their spare time - not something that everyone gives
up very easily these days. These young umpires love
the game - the game that they have spent their whole
life playing. These young umpires are amazing to lis-
ten to and have grown so much during this baseball
season. No, they are not professional umpires, but the
players aren't either. I've heard people complain and
complain about umpires, but imagine it from the oth-
er side. Imagine knowing that when you walk out of
the field, half the people will love you and half the
people will hate you at the end of the game. Imagine
knowing that if you make a mistake and call a close
strike the wrong thing you will be-put down and ha-
rassed. The players make mistakes, but they don't
take any "heat" from the parents. They get told "nice
play" or "you'll get it next time." Umpires make mis-
takes, just like the rest of us. But do you offer them
the same encouragement? No - you heckle, boo, jeer,
and bash that umpire.

It's not like the umpire just wants to throw you out,
but when you start venting on them - you get a warn-
ing. That's YOUR CHANCE to change the outcome
of the situation. The umpires hear you - We ALL hear
you - and its YOU at that point who has the choice of
weather or not you want to stay and watch your child
finish playing? Why do umpires throw people out of
the park who constantly go on and on, because at that
point YOU are no lofiger being adult. What kind of
lesson do you think you are teaching to your child at
that point? That it's ok to yell, cuss, or even worse
threaten an umpire? That umpire is not just an umpire
- they are a PERSON!! If you get thrown out - it al-
most seems to me like you deserve it. I know that I-
don't want my children to see an adult act like a fool
and continually harass someone. I would much rather
have an umpire throw that person out so we can con-
tinue on with the game. So what if an umpire misses
a ball or strike...your children don't catch every fly
ball. It's all about growing and learning. Making mis-
takes is just apart of baseball. Everyone on that ball
field makes mistakes...the coaches, the players and
the umpires. Sometimes as parents and fans - you
guys do too, but you are getting mad at the wrong
person. It's time for a big dose of reality. Look in the
mirror before next baseball season and ask yourself
"Am I going to get mad at a bad call or am I going to
help this umpire learn and grow to his best ability."

To the Good Samaritan who found my wallet and
turned it over to a Winn-Dixie employee after I so
carelessly left it in a shopping cart last week. The
wallet, complete with cash, credit cards, debit cards,
checks and family photos, was returned without a
name for me to thank. Having lived in Live Oak all
of my life, fifty years, it makes me overwhelmingly
proud to know that we do still have honest'citizens
with morals. For often, this is not the story, which
leads me to ask, "What would any of you reading this
do if you found a wallet with $50 plus cash and more
opportunities for a thief?" Thanks again to this Good

Samaritan - one person really can make a difference!

This is in response to the person who put the Rant
& Rave in on the umpires at the rec department. If the
parents would not treat these 15-year-old boys like
they were adults at a Major League baseball game,
then the boys would not have to kick them out. These
parents are verbally .attacking these boys. So if the
parents who were supposed to be acting like adults in
front of their children at a baseball game would act,
accordingly, then these 15-year-old boys would not
have to throw them out of the park.

This is in reference to the umpires at the rec de-
partment I also have children involved there. What's
a shame is when a 15-year-old has to be the adult in
the situation and eject a parent who doesn't know
how to control their foul mouth.

In response to the article about the Suwannee um-
pires. I think they do a fine job and I believe maybe
some of the parents need to grow up and maybe take
some lessons from the umpires.

Someone last week stated no vetoes were made in
City Hall in 30 years. Yes, there were two between
1986 and 2002. One ordinance was passed raising
council's salaries 20.5 percent on a 3-2 vote and this
was vetoed. It was overridden 4-1 when a council-
man switched his vote. Another was passed on a 3-2
vote and was also vetoed, but this one was sustained.

In all faimess, the "river park" area was subdivid-
ed into 1/4 -ac. homesites prior to the popularity of
SWMH. The placing of older, often, uninsured or
uninsurable homes not only affects prop. value, of
others, it also opens the door for wells & septics
every 1/4 ac. in an area prone to flooding. Being
heavily wooded, storm damage would be significant.
The entire issue should be reviewed and/or updated.,
Could this constitute spot zoning as it is permitted in
only one district? These are health & safety prob-
lems caused by this, not to mention a recipe for a
large blighted area. Access to the river is either lost in
time (research into the original proposal may shed
some light on the matter) or is simply urban legend.
It is strongly held as fact, but many sites were once
used by. the public, but actually private property.
There is no indication the county was ever deeded
these sites

You decide - assessed value, $8,025,121, taxes
paid $123,832 in 2007, acreage involved 334 acres.
You may be asking yourself where is this headed.
This is the assessed value of property adjoining Lake
Louise, this is the taxes paid by landowners in 2007,
and this is the acreage owned by landowners having
access to Lake Louise at present. The county is not
giving the landowners any consideration when it
comes to their decisions. Mr. Hatch, Udell and
Maxwell, county commissioners, are out to get a boat
ramp and park while in office. It seems like it's about
time this project backfired and the property owners
were given a break. Enough is enough. It started out
as a 4-acre donation and at the present looks like a $1
million, 30-plus acre headache for the taxpayers and
voters. Step up to the plate, voters and taxpayers. Let
your wishes be known. This isl an election year. Vote
accordingly.

Yes. The public would like to know why do we
need two maintenance employees in the county jail
during the daytime?

Yesterday I filled tip my gas tank in Tallahassee
with gas that was $3.72 when I got to Live Oak gas
was $3.95. Who's making the money?

I am tired of hearing all of the fuss about the secret
OMI report. Who cares? What everyone should be up
in arms about is how in the world did the Chicago
Bulls win the NBA draft lottery. The Bulls supposed-
ly had a 1.7% chance of landing the NBA's first pick
in the 2008 draft. This pick clearly should have gone
to the Miami Heat with the NBA's worst record.
Something smells like bull here. Hopefully, this trav-
esty will be investigated and not by the NBA's refer-
ees.

OPINION
H -m'B3~ S/O On behalf of the
MAYOR'S many students, pre-
psent and past, as well
CORNER as their parents and
others in the Suwan-
nee County comrnu-
nity, I extend my con-
gratulations to the
many retirees of the
, Suwannee County
School System.
BY SONNY NOBLES Twenty-two employ-
ees retired this year,
leaving 621 years of dedicated service behind them. In one way or another, these
employees ministered to the needs of thousands of our young people over four
decades. Wow, what a legacy to leave behind. I wish all of them the best in their
retirement. At the reception, travel, fishing, cooking and grandchildren were
mentioned as future activities by the retirees. I hope each of them are able to ful-
fill their dreams. You can bet your bottom dollar that many of these retirees will
be seen around the schools either volunteering or even some coming back to full
time employment. A big THANK YOU goes out to all for your many years of
tireless, dedicated service:
Many turned out for the Suwannee County Safety Preparedness Expo this past
Saturday. Much information, presentations and demonstrations ranging from
hurricane preparedness, fire safety and animal control were presented throughout
the Expo. I, along with firefighters and fire department volunteers had an oppor-
tunity to give blood that morning. We all got shirts out of the deal. The Expo was
a major undertaking and I recognize Kimberly Thomas and Sharon Hingson for
putting the Expo together. Good job girls!
I remind you of the Memorial Day ceremony to be held at the Live Oak Ceme-
tery on May 26 beginning at 11 a.m. Our community will have an opportunity to
recognize and honor the many who have served our great country in the various
branches of the armed forces of the United States of America. Many of our mil-
itary comrades fell during armed combat and many have passed in recent years.
Last month, Councilman Stewart and I were in Tallahassee visiting the legisla-
ture. In front of the building, monuments dedicated by the various counties were
on display. Suwannee County's read, "all gave some but some gave all." That's
what Memorial Day is all about. It provides each of us with an opportunity to re-
member the many that served, sacrificed and gave their all in defense of our
country and democracy around the world. We must never forget. Fly your flag as
a symbol of your appreciation. God bless America and God bless the many who
unselfishly served our country well.
I was pleased to present three proclamations to the council last week to be in-
cluded in the official records of the city. I proclaimed May 5 as Arnold Brim Ap-
preciation Day in recognition of his musical accomplishments and his many oth-
er services to our community and the Suwannee River Valley. Mr. Arnold was
quite a fellow. After my father passed away, I was going through some of his be-
longings. I came across a booklet .compiled by Mr. Brim entitled, 1001 REA-
SONS TO SMILE. It was inscribed, To Garth. Love, Arnold. This book is one of
my personal treasures. I use it often. One of my favorite anecdotes from the book
reads, "Character is much easier kept than recovered." This is a great creed for
those of us in public service to live by. Also, in conjunction with national recog-
nition, I proclaimed the week of May 18 as National Public Works Week in the
city of Live Oak. I also proclaimed the week of June 2 as Code Enforcement Ap-
preciation Week. Both of these groups provide invaluable services to the resi-
dents of Live Oak and throughout the nation.
The Chamber of Commerce along with the city have organized a downtown
revitalization committee. The purpose of the committee is to improve the ap-
pearance of the city making it more attractive to locals and visitors and to en-
courage new businesses to locate in the downtown area. The committee will look,
at other ways to make our city more beautiful, appealing and attractive to patrons.
I extend my congratulations to the graduates of the class of 2008. If they did it
right, they along with their parents, will complete 12 years of hard labor on May
31. These graduates will enter a new phase of their lives. Some will enter the
work force while others will go on and further their education either through col-
lege or trade school. Whatever route each of them follow, we all wish them the
best of luck. If these young people thought school was tough at times, they ain't
seen nothing yet. It's rough out there in the real and everyday world. Here I go
again. Please have that talk with your kids about their graduation celebrations.
Like I wrote concerning the prom, this is a very dangerous time. As a parent, do
whatever it takes to hopefully ensure your kids' safety, We.certainly don't want
those past 12 years to be wasted with a tragedy. One thing that can be done is to
remind them to wear their seatbelts. Good luck and Godspeed to each and every
graduate of the class of 2008.
The food drive sponsored by the postal carriers was down from last year's col-
lection. Ten thousand pounds of food was collected locally. That sounds pretty
good but last year, fifteen thousand pounds were donated. This is possibly an in-
dication of the tough times people are experiencing. This food was distributed to
eight local agencies that provide food for the needy. A big THANK YOU goes
out to each of you that gave.
At the last meeting of the council, I presented my objections to the land use
and zone.,change on Railroad Avenue. I did not object to these changes lightly.
This authority is almost sacred to me as mayor and the first time I have exercised
this authority. This authority is given the mayor as part of the "system of checks
and balances" in place at many levels of government. I felt strongly enough about
preserving the integrity of this neighborhood to exercise this authority. Not only
was this an illegal action, it,goes against logical and acceptable zoning practices.
It was an instance of spot zoning and was previously denied by the zoning board.
Laws addressing public notice were not prescribed to. Fees that are required of
everyone else for these changes were not paid under .the assumption this was
property was incorrectly zoned. This assumption was not correct. This entire area
of the city is and has always been zoned residential. The establishment on the
property was grandfathered in as a "non-conforming" use. I could go on and on
as to why I took this action. The irony of all of this is that the property request-
ed in the change could not have been used for the intended purpose anyway. It
was only 200 feet deep with 50 feet wide road frontage. This property could not
have even come close to meeting buffer, setbacks, parking, sewer and water re-
tention requirements. Sewer to this site is not available. It would have necessi-
tated the city run sewer lines to the property at your, the citizens', expense,
which would cost the taxpayers thousands of dollars.
Now, I do not tell Ken Duce and Mark Stewart what to do. They are grown,
freethinking and honorable men intent upon doing what is legally right and in the
best interest of the citizens of Live Oak. You should thank your lucky stars you
have men at City Hall doing what is just and right and watching out for your in-
terest. Mark and Ken, you are commended for your actions.

Gas line extension draws heat from landowners


Continued From Page 1A

increase capacity by about
one billion cubic feet per
day of natural gas.
A 35-mile loop will be
constructed in the southern
part of Suwannee County,
as well as another segment
about 22 miles long, in-
cluding about eight miles
of pipeline in the northwest
part of the county.
FGTC would obtain a
permanent right-of-way
easement about 50 feet in
width. A company
spokesperson said a major-
ity of the pipeline route
would parallel existing
utility rights-of-way.
"The reason for the
Phase VIII project is to
help insure that Florida and
other gulf coast states have
enough energy to meet fu-
ture needs. Tremendous
growth means more ener-
gy," said John Barnett, ex-
ternal affairs representative
for FGTC.
Barnett said final deter-
mination of the route has
not been made, however.
The company is looking


at several different routes,
he said. One route would
move the pipeline out of
Suwannee County and into
Madison County.
"It is very early in the
process," Barnett said in
reference to where the
route will be located and
how many landowners will
be affected. The current
proposed route would af-
fect about 90 landowners
in Suwannee County. Con-
struction is set to begin
about 2010. Barnett said
landowners will be con-
tacted and possible routes
surveyed before a final
route is determined.
Landowners will have a
right-of-way agent who
will make sure the owner
is fairly compensated if a
pipeline is installed.
"Our goal is to have a
minimal disruption to day-
to-day lives," Barnett said.
Barnett said landowners
will be able to continue to
use their land after the
pipeline is built, though no
permanent buildings are al-
lowed to be placed upon a
pipeline.


Barnett said the surveys
will determine whether
there are any permanent
structures, such as a house,
on the proposed route and
that FGTC will then deter-
mine what actions to take.
"We will gather all the in-
formation to see what will
happen," said Barnett.
Maria Bonura and her
husband, John, who own
land and live in Luraville,
are opposed to the pipeline,
which would run through
their property.
"We are keeping our fin-
gers crossed," Bonura said.
"We moved out here for a
reason."
Bonura said when they
moved out to the country
they thought they would be
out of reach of such con-
cerns.
Bonura said FGTC rep-
resentatives were open to
their concerns, though.
"They were very open
and receptive to what we
(the landowners) had to
say.",
The Bonuras sent a letter
to the FGTC denying them
access to their property for

a survey.
They said they do not
want what they described
as their "personal utopia"
destroyed.
In a letter to FTGC, the
Bonuras listed three of their
main concerns.
. First, they fear the value__
of their land will be dimin-
ished. Second, they routine-
ly burn their fields, and
suggest the pipeline would
create safety concerts. Fi-
nally, they say the installa-
tion of the pipeline would
require them to purchase a
more comprehensive prop-
erty insurance policy than
they now have.
Paul Millington, also of
Luraville, doesn't want the
pipeline to cross his proper-
ty either. Millington owns
land on the Suwannee Riv-
er. The current proposed
route would appear to put
the pipeline under the river
and directly through his
house. (A survey has not
yet confirmed this.)
FGTC "already has exist-
ing rights-of-way they can
use that will not cause any
problems," Millington said.
"If they use these the envi-
ronmental footprint will be
felt much less."
A number of other
landowners objected to the
proposed extension as well,
but would not speak for the
record.
If the project is approved
by the Federal Energy Reg-
ulatory Commission, prop-
erty needed for the project
could be seized by means
of eminent domain.- -_
Public meetings are be-
ing held to answer
landowners' questions
about the proposed exten-
sion. The next meeting in
the region will be held
Wednesday, June 4 at 7


p.m. at the Catholic Church
Parish hall in Perry. Those

A MEMORIAL DAY MYSTERY


- SOLVED


Continued From Page 1A

was constructed in the
1960s, the monument was
moved.
"Some wanted to be-
lieve it was down in the
basement of the court-
house," he said.
"It had gotten in bad
shape over the years and
all of a sudden it disap-
peared," said Reginald
Scott, a former veterans
service officer for Suwan-
nee County.
Now the mystery may


be solved.
Tom Sessions - whose
father, Lavaughn A. Ses-
sions, was Suwannee
County Clerk of Court in
the 60s - remembers a
story his father told him
about the monument.
Sessions was a teenager
at the time, but he recalls
that the monument, a
wooden structure that
stood on posts, was to be
relocated when wings
were added to the court-
house to house the sher-
iff's office and to provide


new quarters for the clerk
of court. That was in
1964-65.
Sessions said Thursday
that his father had told him
decades earlier that the
monument didn't survive
the attempt to move it.
"When they dug it up
and tried to move it the
wood was so weak - it
didn't look rotten - it just
came apart," Sessions said.
What remained was dis-
carded in the county


dump.
"You can believe if it
could have been saved
they would have," said
Tom Sessions.
Sessions said he be-
lieves the sign suffered
from dry rot.
"I hadn't thought about
it in 40 or 50 years," he
said.
"We don't know, to my
knowledge, really what -
happened," Eric Mus-
grove, historian for the


clerk's office, said Thurs-
day.
Musgrove said it was ru-
mored at one time that a
county worker had taken
the sign down and brought
it home with him.
Musgrove said from
time to time he receives
calls from the public seek-
ing information about the
monument.
Musgrove said the mon-
ument - a veteran's wall
- was erected in 1943.


He said he didn't know
the fate of the monument,
but called Sessions' recol-
lection "one of the many
plausible explanations as
to what happened."
There was 'another mon-
ument for black veterans,
but Musgrove said he
doesn't know whether it
was erected on the court-
house lawn or elsewhere.
Marsha Hitchcock con-
tributed reporting to this
story.

Tony Cameron, Boswell
was general manager of
the Royal Inn Motel on
North Ohio in Live Oak
several years ago.
Whitworth has lived at
several different Live Oak
addresses in recent years,
including the Royal Inn,
which he helped manage.
Whitworth is wanted here
for violation of probation
on the original charges of
possession of a controlled"
substance and grand theft.
Suwannee County Jail
records show he has been
arrested here 12 times
since 1998. No known
criminal history exists for
Boswell, said Cameron.
According to a news re-
lease on the Columbia
County Sheriff's Website,
a Hamilton County deputy
reported a wallet that be-
longed to Gifford had
been found near US 41 in
Hamilton County.
A Columbia County
deputy then visited Gif-
ford's home but found nei-
ther him nor his pickup
truck.
About two hours later a
neighbor of Gifford's told
authorities there appeared
to be a body in a pond -
not visible from the drive-
way - in Gifford's back
yard:


A be-on-the-lookout
(BOLO) was issued
Wednesday afternoon for
Boswell and Whitworth.
"The Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforce-
ment's Crime Scene Unit
was called," Sheriff Bill
Gootee said in a news re-
lease posted on the sher-
iff's office Website. "We
do not know the cause of
death or the time of death
but we are actively work-
ing on several leads. Spe-
cial agents with FDLE are
following up on leads out-
side Columbia County."
Boswell is described as
a white female, 5 feet 7
inches tall, around 140
pounds with brown hair.
Whitworth is described as
a white male, 6 feet 3
inches tall, about 170
pounds with brown hair.
Officials are looking
for Gifford's truck, a
white 2002 Chevrolet,
regular cab, stepside
.pickup with Florida tag
K223JT.
The cause of death will
be determined by the.
Medical Examiner's Of-
fice In Jacksonville.
Anyone with informa-
tion related to this case is
asked to call Crime Stop-
pers of Columbia County
at 386-754-7099.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - Former Suwannee Bulldog
Tyler Chambliss got his seventh save of the year Sunday
for the Wilmington (Del.) Blue Rocks of the Carolina
League.
The Blue Rocks were propelled by a five-run fifth inning
to an 8-6 victory over the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.
The victory gave the Blue Rocks (20-22) a 2-1 series
victory over its nemesis and a winning road trip, as
Wilmington went 5-2 on its journey.
Chambliss, the closer, tiptoed through danger, allowing
five base runners but no runs to earn a two-inning save.
The Blue Rocks are the Class A affiliate of the Kansas
City Royals.

Kids in many areas of our
country play in the Babe Ruth
Baseball League. Many if not
most of the kids and coaches
have any idea of Ruth's
accomplishments. Sure, many
of his records have been
broken and yes, it was a
different era, but his
dominance is so
distinguishable. Great athletic
standards are set against peers
and existing records. Ruth had
neither. He was the axiom by
which we measure today.
As a pitcher Babe won 94 of
the 163'ganies he pitched and
saved two more. Twice he was
a 20-game winner and led the
league in many statistical
categories. Babe Ruth spent 5-
plus years has a pitcher. If he
had been hitting those years
would Aaron or Bonds have
even had a chance? Babe Ruth
would have probably made the
Hall of Fame as a great pitcher
of his time. He was perhaps a
cut below Walter Johnson and
Grover Alexander, the greats
of his day. If the glory of
baseball were about pitching
our kids would be playing Cy
Young baseball.
The Bambino, Sultan Of
Swat or simply the Babe was
hitting 54 homeruns when the
next closest competitor was
the entire St. Louis Brown's
team with 50. Ruth lead the
Major Leagues in homeruns
from 1918 thru 1931 with two
exceptions, 1922 and 1925,
when he missed a third of each
season with injuries. Babe
finished second in 1922, 1932
and 1933. When it was over,
12 homerun crowns, 11 RBI

. Suwannee/Lafayette Retired Educators May meeting


By Laura Hodges
Suwannee/Lafayette Retired
Educators held its last meeting of the
year on May 12 honoring all of its
scholarship winners, installing new
officers and remembering the ones
who have died this year. Everyone
was welcomed to the covered dish
supper at the Community
Presbyterian Church by Bill
McMillan, president. Calvin Bradley
led in the blessing and everyone
enjoyed the covered dish supper.
Willie Veal Jr. cooked the meat, so it
was very special.
We then asked the local
scholarship winners to come forward
and to introduce the people with
them, to accept their $500 and share
about what they plan to do next year.
The three winners were Anna Lee
from Branford and Amanda Dansby
and Kailey Sapp from Mayo.
Next, we invited the state
scholarship winners of (now) $3,250
for four years to come forward.
Our third year state winner from
Mayo, Hannah Vann Clark, shared
that she planned to go to the
University of Florida as she
completes North Florida Community
College. She will receive $1,000 for
her third year.
Kyla Serrano will receive $1,000
for her fourth year. She is majoring EuBill
in special education at Flagler
College.
New officers were then installed,
Elouise Green - president, Judy
Sweat - vice-president, Sandra
Balwin - secretary, and Ken Lee -
membership and treasurer. Andrea
Miller will be the new cultural
affairs chairman, Ina Putnal and Vy sta
Ritter scholarship chairmen.
We then lit four candles for
Evelyn Jackson, Isabelle Jones,
Mary Lundy and Maxine Miller,
with people sharing about what these
people have meant to them. After a
moment of silence, the candles were -v
blown out. New
The meeting was then adjourned. Lee.

"Forgetting Sarah Marshall" V
is the latest movic to be Mila I
churned out of the Judd

-- the same gang who gave us "The
40-Year-Old Virgin," "Superbad" and
"Knocked Up," to name a few.
If you've seen any of those films,
you pretty much know what you're

hit movie.


might

up to her in a
bar and tried
to start a
conversation.
Add a few
phallic jokes,
and voila --


The lovable loser in "Sarah Marshall"
is Jason Segel (who also wrote the
script) playing a composer named
Peter, who writes music for his
actress girlfriend's CSI-type TV
show. His girlfriend, of course, is
the titular Sarah Marshall (Kristen
Bell), who early in the film breaks
up with Peter because he's boring.


S2006b Hometown Content, listings by Zap2it

All he basically does is schlep
around the house eating cereal.
Peter heads to Hawaii to forget
Sarah and winds up accidentally
booking a room at the same resort
where Sarah and her Limey Lothario
beau (the hilarious Russell Brand)
are staying.
While at the resort, Peter meet
Rachel (Mila Kunis), and the two
slowly get to know each other. Who
will Peter end up with? Will Sarah
leave her British rocker boyfriend
after seeing Peter with the
enchanting Rachel?
You'll have to watch the film to find
out.
And you should. "Forgetting Sarah
Marshall" is an enjoyable comedy
filled with great performances and a
lot of laughs. Definitely check it out.

JILL JACKSON'S HOLIYWI1


By Jill Jackson

HOLLYWOOD... "The DaVinci
Code" was a long time best-
seller. Then the book was made
into a movie starring Tom Hanks
as Professor Robert Langdon,
the man who seeks to break the
code. Unfortunately the film
didn't do as well as the book.
However, a prequel titled "Angels
and Demons" with Hanks as
Professor Langdon is getting
ready to film. Ewan McGregor
has signed on to co-star with


Ewan McGregor


Tom as
Camero Carlo
Ventresca.
The plot of
this one has Langdon
trying to solve a murder
and unravel a plot by an
ancient group to blow up
the Vatican during a
Papal Conclave.
Vantresca is the Pope's
closest aide and helps
Langdon in his pursuit.
McGregor was born in
Crieff, Scotland in 1971.
He started his career at
age 16, working
backstage at the Perth
Theatre.


This struck me as kind of funny. Stephen
King wrote a short story titled "Dolan's
Cadillac." Starring in the motion-picture
adaptation is an actor named Wes Bentley.
The story is a thriller about a man who
plots to avenge the murder of his wife by a
Las Vegas mob member.
That adorable little America Ferrera is
going to make a film titled "An Impossible
Sign of My Own" and is based on the book
by Aimee Bender. And will America be
busy! The film will shoot between takes of
her TV series "Ugly Betty." AND she said
she'll "be loving every minute of it."
Gwyneth Paltrow has always had a look of
her own. Not so when she appeared on
"The Late Show." There she was, same little
nothing black dress, just like other
actresses who wore the same "little


nothing." Long, straight blond hair falling
all over her face. Just like those umpteen
others. AND what did they talk about?
Their kids, Dave's 4-year-old Harry and j
Gwyneth's Moses and Apple. They did
manage to mention "Iron Man," Paltrow's
latest picture, with Robert Downey Jr.
My neighbor Lake Bell is fast'becoming a
MOVIE star after a long time on the tube.
Her latest film, "What Happens In Vegas,"
premiered, strangely, in Britain.
Incidentally, if you're in the vicinity of West
Hollywood and Lake is not working, you
might see her walking her dog Maggie,
pooper scooper in hand. There's a $50 fine
in our little town for failing to scoop.

be virtuous .


C.S. Lewis once remarked that
"Courage is not simply one of the
virtues, but the form of every
virtue at the testing point."
It is easy to be merciful or honest
when nothing is at stake.
But what do we do when honesty
or mercy comes with a price?
There are times when telling the
truth may get us into trouble,
especially when we have done
wrong or gone astray in some way.
In these situations, it takes real
courage to openly and honestly
confess our sins. Being virtuous is
hardly praise worthy when it is
easy. But, it is precisely when we
are being tested, i.e., when virtue
is dangerous, that it requires
courage and is truly worthy of
praise. In a sense, courage is the
linchpin of the virtuous life, since
without it we may be reluctant
to do the right thing, especially
when doing the right thing has
significant risks. We should make
a commitment to always do
the right thing, regardless of the
cost, and be prepared to call
upon our courage.

RELIGION


Speaking the same languages


Heart Matters
By Angie Land

I just finished sending my
son a text message. Big deal,
right? For me it is...it took me
forever! My kids can whip out
text messages in a matter of
seconds and never miss a beat,
but I am what you might call
text challenged. (If you are
reading this and have no idea
what a text message is, ask
your grandchildren.) The first
few times I tried to send one, I
couldn't figure out how to
space between the words,
soitalllookedlikethis. When I
finally figured it out, I s e n t o
nethatlookedlIkethI
s. My kids get a lot of laughs
at my expense. The way I see
it, if you have a phone in your
hand, just call and SAY what


you need to say, for cryin' out
loud! But...if this is the way
the younger generation
communicates...I want to be in
on it! I am convinced that
communication is the key to
every great relationship.
According to Dr. Gary
Chapman's book Now You're
Speaking My Language,
communication involves "self-
revelation" on the part of one
individual and listening on the
part of another.
"Communication is essential
in order to understand what is
going on inside other people,"
he says. "If they do not share
their thoughts, feelings, and
experiences, we are left to
guess. Unfortunately, our
guesses are usually wrong and
lead to misunderstandings."
These misunderstandings
can cause some big problems,
and can often be the reason we
stop communicating...who
needs the hassle? We
do...because unfortunately
sweeping a problem under the
rug and pretending like it isn't
there, doesn't make it go away.
It is just waiting for us to trip
over it another day!
For some, the only thing
more difficult than being a
good listener is being the one
who shares our own thoughts,
feelings and experiences. We
may be able to talk (or text) all
day about a hunting trip, the
great sale at the mall, or who


won the ballgame, but letting
another person in on how we
feel is often new territory. In 1
Corinthians 2:11, the Bible
records a question raised by
the apostle Paul, "Who knows
the thoughts of a man, except
the man's spirit within him?"
(What woman hasn't
wondered the same?)
Good communication is the
road to intimacy...poor
communication leads
relationships down dead-end
streets. This week try
responding with something
besides "fine" when your
spouse asks about your day.
Learn how to send your kids a
text message. E-mail or call a
friend. Communication is
about sharing life...so slow
down and talk, listen, and
share your thoughts... and your
heart...because it really does
matter!
Blessings,
Angie

What about the people

we drive away?


By Derek Maul
www.derekmaul.net

I had an interesting
exchange over the
weekend with a former
friend I
hadn't heard from in
decades. He'd run
across my name on the
World Wide Web, he
said. "I see you write
religious books." By
implication, he


condescended, my
view of the world must be narrow-
minded and intolerant.
"I wouldn't exactly say I write
'religious' books," I replied.
"You'll have to read them of
course, but it would be more
accurate to say that I write about
my faith journey, my ongoing
pilgrimage, and some of my
experiences as a Jesus-Follower -
often in the context of the amazing
community of faith where we
worship as a family."
I knew he'd been a victim of harsh,
judgmental religion, so I owned
some of the problems I have with
reactionary religiosity that
mistakes North American Culture
for Christianity, and I talked about
the value I find in sharing my faith
journey via writing and speaking
across the United States.
The response was chilling. "Gee,
Derek, no sermons...please...I am
not religious in any way at all and


by the Rev. James L. Snyder

My grandfather always insisted that poli-
tics and religion just does not mix. If he
said it to me once he said it to me a million
times, "Son, religion and politics doesn't
mix in poh.ip conversation," What he meant
by "polite conversation" he never did ex-
plain.
It is obvious that most people do not en-
gage in polite conversation.
However, has there ever been a time
when politics and religion was more mixed
up than today. Somewhere along the line,
somebodN dumped politics and religion in
the same barrel and mixed them up thor-
oughly. It has painfully come to the point in
our country where the only difference be-
tween "politics," and "religion," is in the
spelling.
I will grant you that in the world of poli-
tics some need a little more religion than is
currently evident. Any religion would be a
help at this point. Those who should be
helping others are simply helping them-
selves.
We now find ourselves as a nation in a .
great race for the White House. Normally a
healthy sprint but this time it has turned
into a marathon with both sides making up
the rules as they go along.
It seems that one team is playing baseball
while the other team is playing basketball
on the same playing field. Perhaps they are
taking their plans from the Harlem Globe-
trotters.
One questionA have is this, who in their
right mind wants to be President of the
United States? I question the sanity of any-
one who desires to sit behind the desk in
the Oval Office. Half of the people will
love you, half of the people will hate you,
and the other half will not remember your
name.
You have to be half-crazy to run and if
you win, the craziness is accomplished.
But this time it is a political cornucopia
of choices. Just the top three provides us
with all the variety we could ever expect.
We have a woman, an African-American
and an old white guy. What more could you
ask for? Can it get any crazier than this?
The entertainment value in this whole
business is incalculable. For example, when
'the Hollywood writer's strike was on, the
late-night TV comedians did not have writ-
ers writing their material. But they were not
needed as the political material wrote itself.
There is nothing more inanely funny than a
politician trying to make a serious point.
As I was pondering this whole issue, a
thought struck me as I have never been
struck before (not counting that incident in
1998).
A news report indicated that the three top
candidates for the President of the United
States were raising approximately $100
million a month. My first reaction was a
low whistle that caught the attention of the
Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage.


"Are you sure you're reading that right,"
she asked questioning my intelligence.
When I affirmed the correctness of the
figure all she said was, "what a waste of
good money."
It was then that this idea invaded the dark
recesses of my mind And does my mind .
love recess. What if...and I know this
comes perilously close to the Twilight
Zone...but what if these people would raise
money for legitimate purposes? I know this
goes against all that is politically correct in
our country, but the idea fascinated me for
a few moments.
Can we really afford these money raisers
to step down and become President of the
United States? If these top level money ma-
chines really wanted to serve their country I
think they unwittingly found their niche.
After all, would we really miss a vacancy
in the Oval Office?
Wouldn't it be much better for our coun-
try if we allow these three money-raising
politicians to keep on raising this kind of
money month after month? Do you realize
this would be over billionn a year?
I think this would serve our country a lot
better than someone sitting behind a desk at
the Oval Office making changes most of
the people do not need in the first place.
We need a different kind of change, in the
form of cold hard cash month after month
such as these are raising right now.
I think this idea is a terrific one. Each
month the monies raised during that month
could then be distributed to needy causes.
And by needy causes, I mean a cause not
associated in any way, shape or form to
anything political, which would rule out 99
percent of the agencies getting money from
the government now. And, for the first time
in our history the people who actually need
help would get it, all of it.
Of course, I know what would happen.
All of these political niceties dividing our
country now would fall by the wayside.
The country would not be divided and
fighting each other. The problem here
would be, what in the world could we
fight? After all, it is in our nature to fight.
How about crime, injustice, illiteracy, ha-
tred, poverty...and a hundred other things
destroying our culture today.
The Bible has something to say along
these lines. "Open thy mouth for the dumb
in the cause of all such as are appointed to
destruction. Open thy mouth, judge right-
eously, and plead the cause of the poor and
needy" (Proverbs 31:8-9 KJV).
What if we would mix politics and reli-
gion together and come up with a "helping
hand?"

it will do you no
good to preach at

. and life are much
better without
that particular
mythology...."
Then, by way of
shooting down
my invitation to
continue our
conversation,
"I'm not
'.. interested in your
path."
I was disappointed. Rather than
engage in honest dialog, my former
friend was content to lob a few
grenades my way and then.run
away. His response to challenging.
questions was first condescending
and then angry. When he closed the
door on conversation he blamed
me for "being offended" - I wasn't
- then walked away.
Here's my point. Too many people
have been damaged by
presentations of Christian faith that
are inauthentic, harsh,
disingenuous or paired with
political ideology at the expense of
Gospel. My former friend has
become as closed and judgmental
as those who taught him.
Our opportunity is to simply shine
with integrity. It's a great thing to
know we may have led someone to
faith.... But how many people have
we turned away? It's a good
question to consider.

Dear Classified Guys,
I'm not the type of person to shop the
classified. However after reading
one of your columns, I was inspired
to read the business services' sec-
tion. I'm really glad I did. For years
I've had my hair done at a small
salon near my home. Although the
owner was nice, I didn't always love
the way she did my hair.
Surprisingly, I found a hair stylist
who advertised in the classified.
Although it was unlike me to try
something like this, I threw caution
to the wind and tried it anyway. It
turned out that the woman gave up
her salon when she had kids and
found working out of her home had
less overhead and more flexibility. I
have to tell you, she is not only very
personable, but I love what she did
with my hair. It's priceless!
What I can't decide is if I "
should tell my old stylist '
that I won't be coming
back. After so many years, is it
rude to just stop going? I
don't want any hurt feelings.
Cash: I think many women would
agree with you that a good hair stylist is
priceless. Although, there's probably
many husbands who could put a price

limit on them!
Carry: Now the good part is that you
found a new hairstylist you like, and
you did it trying something new, by
reading the business services' section.
Cash: It's very nice of you to be con-
cemed about the feelings of your previ-
ous stylist, but you have to remember
that at the end of the day, she is running a
business. When you don't like the quali-
ty of someone you hired, it's perfectly
normal to discontinue using the service.
Carry: From your stylist point of
view, it's likely she has experienced this
before. If she's been in business for
many years, then she knows that cus-


tomers will come and go. They may
move out of town, desire a new cut or
just want some new gossip!
Cash: Whether you tell your stylist
or not, she'll eventually realize you're
not coming back. It's likely not an issue
unless you bump into her around town.
Then, you can simply tell her that
you've decided to try someone new.
Regardless of the awkwardness, it's
always best to be upfront and honest.
Carry: Of course telling the truth
does have its limits. You may want to
avoid letting your husband know what
it really costs to get your hair styled.


Pony Tail
Most of us cut our hair every 1 to 3
months depending on the hairstyle.
Considering human hair grows about V2
inch per month, you can accumulate
about 6 inches in length every year. So
what would happen if you never cut your
hair? That's a question best answered by
a woman named Xie Qiuping of China.
In 1973, at the age of 13, she stopped
cutting her hair. Today, she is the world
record holder of the longest hair measur-
ing over 18 feet in length.
Twisted
While most businesses advertise with
a sign, some barbers still choose to mark
their shop with a red, blue and white
striped pole. This icon has been around
for hundreds of years and originated
when barbers were known for more than
cutting hair. Centuries ago a barber also
performed the surgical procedure of
bloodletting, the act of removing blood
from the body as a cure for diseases.
After the procedure the stained bandag-
es were hung out to dry on a pole as a
sort of advertisement. They often twist-
ed in the wind, forming the pattern of
the modem day barber pole.

Permanent
Every time my wife goes to the
hair salon she wants a new hairstyle.
Some styles she likes and some she
doesn't. I'm constantly chuckling at
the hours she spends searching
through magazines for a picture of
the style she wants that month.
Last time she cut out a picture of a
famous celebrity walking her poodle
and said she wanted the hairsryle on
the woman. When she returned
home from the salon, she was com-
pletely dissatisfied with the results.
She held up the photo and said,
"These curls don't look anything like
the picture."
"Sure they do," I laughed knowing
I'd get into trouble. "They just look
more like the poodle!"
