Hurricane

season's

upon us

12-16 storms
anticipated
By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com
Forecasters are indicating
we might be in for an active
hurricane season this year.
The season began Sunday
and will continue through
Nov. 30.
The hurricane forecast
team at Colorado State Uni-
versity said the U.S. At-
lantic basin would likely
experience an active hurri-
cane season this year. The
team's forecast anticipates
15 named storms. Eight of
the storms are predicted to
become hurricanes, four of
which are expected to de-
velop into intense or major
hurricanes with sustained
winds of 111 mph or
greater.

Budget cuts hit hard.

in 3rd Judicial Circuit


The Third Judicial Cir-

to the budget questions
that have created uncer-

OUR VI
Suwannee Democrat


Wanted:


Good


advice

With gas nearing the
$4 mark in the Suwan-
nee Valley, everybody
wants to save fuel.
Just how to go about it
is the question. Mass
transit isn't practical
in a rural area like
ours. Ride a bike to
work? Depending on
where you live, that
could take a while.
Carpooling? That
might help in some
cases.
It's a bit trying, in
any case, to hear
Washington insiders
and others constantly
telling us to "change
our driving habits."
Good advice in New
York City, not so easy
to follow here.
We want to hear
from you. Tell us
whether, and how,
you've changed your
driving habits. And
tell us how you're
coping in general with
the rocketing price of
fuel.
Write us at Suwan-
nee Democrat, PO
Box 370, Live Oak,
FL 32064, or contact
us by email at
robert.bridges @ gaflne
ws.com.
We're anxious to
hear from you. Mean-
while, keep your car
tuned up and your
tires properly inflated.
That'll ease the pain at
the pump at least a lit-
tle.


Please address letters to:
Letters To The Editor,
SuwanneeDemocrat,
PO Box 370,
Live Oak, FL 32064.
Please include your full name, address and
daytime phone number. We ask this so we
can verify your letter and discuss any ques-
tions about it with you.

OMI releases its

report of dumping

investigation


Continued From Page 1A

launched a criminal inves-
tigation against the compa-
ny in February.
According to a DEP re-
port, an OMI employee
said he was ordered to '
dump raw sewage down a
city storm drain last Au-
gust. DEP declared the
criminal investigation in-
clusive because, it could
not prove the violation
had occurred due to the
lapse of time between the
alleged dumping and
when the incident,was re-
ported.
According to the report,
DEP also investigated an
incident that supposedly
took place a number of
weeks prior to the alleged
dumping. In this instance
the city reportedly sent its
vacuum truck to the Gold
Kist (now Pilgrim's Pride)
chicken processing plant
to pump out untreated sol-
id material and then
dumped it at the back of
the plant's property.
In its report OMI stated
that no evidence was
found to support the alle-


gations and that the alle-
gations were based on
"misconceptions or mis-
leading information." Ac-
cording to OMI, the mate-,
rials disposed of at Gold
Kist were non-hazardous,
rather than waste, and that
they were removed and
disposed of appropriately.
The report also stated that
"OMI did not receive or
find any other information
that supported any other
allegations."
In his letter to the city
council announcing OMI's
report, Mayor Sonny No-
bles called it "ludicrous to
think OMI would under-
take a cover-up of any il-
legal activities."
Herb Washington,
OMI's regional vice presi-
dent of project delivery,
announced the company's
findings at a March 27
council meeting at which
time he told the city the
company would not issue
a written copy of the in-
vestigation to them or to
the press. The company,
however, did release a
copy of the report to the
city on May 12.


Survivors include three
daughters; Linda (Buddy)
Nott of Live Oak, Florida.
Sally (Tom) Daly of Ponte
Vedra, Florida and Beverly
(Bob) Baucom of Clayton,
North Carolina; one son,
Tim (Danielle) Richardson
of Land-O-Lakes, Florida;
one sister, Vera Shay of St.
Lucie, Florida; seven
grandchildren; and seven
great-grandchildren.
Memorial services will
be held at 10:30 a.m., to-
day, Wednesday, June 4 at
St. Luke's Episcopal
Church with father Don
Woodrum officiating. Fi-
nalization was by crema-
tion and her ashes will be
placed in the columbarium
at St. Lukes Episcopal
Church. In lieu of flowers,
contributions may be made
to St. Luke's Episcopal

Budget cuts hit hard in 3rd Judicial Circuit


C Continued From PageA IA

for statutory salaries of
judges, who are constitu- ,
tional officers, this meant a
reduction in staff. For the
Third Judicial Circuit, this
means a 22 percent reduc-
tion in expenses anid a loss
of four of its 36 court ad-
ministration positions.
"The judges and staff of
the Third Circuit are com-
mitted to ensuring justice
for the people we serve,
and we will do whatever it
takes to get the job done,"
said Chief Judge E. Vernon
Douglas. "In some areas of
the state, they are cutting
entire programs. Fortu-
nately, it didn'tcome down
to that for us, so those who
depend on our courts


should not see any changes
in the services we pro-
vide."
"In working through
these reductions, we have
had to take a close look at
everything we do and how
we do it, and we have done
everything possible to miti-
gate the impact on our ser-
vices and our current em-
ployees. While the reduc-
tions are difficult, there
was a time during the Leg-
islative session when we
thought that we might lose
16 of our 36 employees, so
we know that it could have
been much worse," said
Sondra Williams, Third
Circuit trial court adminis-
trator.
The Third Judicial Cir-
cuit serves Suwannee, Co-


lumbia, Dixie, Hamilton,
Lafayette, Madison and
Taylor counties. In addition
to the Court Administration
employees mentioned
above, the state budget for
the circuit includes seven
circuit judges, seven coun-
ty judges, and 14 judicial
assistants.

Porter announces candidacy for


Florida House, District 11


Continued From Page 1A

Will Weatherford (R-
Zephyrhills). House Dis-
trict 11 includes parts of
Alachua, Columbia,
Gilchrist, Lafayette,
Suwannee, and Dixie -
counties.
"I am overjoyed to have
the opportunity to continue
to give back to my North
Florida community by run-
ning for the Florida House
of Representatives," said
Porter. "North Florida has
been my home for many
years and I believe I have
the passion and drive
needed to serve the people
of House District 11. This
opportunity will allow me
to hone in on the chal-
lenges that face my neigh-
bors each and every day,
and be the strong voice
they are looking for in Tal-
lahassee."
"As a dedicated wife
and mother, local busi-
.nesswoman and an active
member of the community,
Commissioner Porter
would make a great addi-


tion to the Florida House,"
said Sansom. "Her strong
community ties will allow
her to fully understand and
actively articulate the is-
sues and needs that are im-
portant to the constituents
of District 11 in the Flori-
da Legislature."
"The commissioner's
announcement to run for
House District 11 comes at
a very telling time," said
Cannon. "With the current
status of our state's econo-
my, it takes a citizen as
dedicated as Commission-
er Porter to stand up and
work to make a difference
for the people of Florida.
We favorably welcome her
announcement and would
be pleased to have her as a
part of the Florida House
of Representatives."
"Commissioner Porter is
an ideal candidate for this
seat," said Weatherford.
"Her character and can-do
attitude speak for itself.
She is committed to serv-
ing the six-county district
and bringing forth fresh
ideas that will' ring loud


for the voters of District
11."
"House District 11 is a
Republican district in
which Governor Crist gar-
nered a 61 percent win,"
said Republican Party of
Florida Chairman Jim
Greer. "Commissioner
Porter is a proven leader
who has the skills neces-
sary to make a meaningful
impact as a member of the
Florida House from day
one. House District 11 has
been on loan to the Demo-
cratic Party, but it is ours
and we are taking it this
fall."
A native of Columbia
County, Porter has been
living, working and serv-
ing her community for
more than 30 years. She
currently serves as the
District Five Columbia
County Commissioner,
where her seat will be up
for election in November.
Throughout her tenure,
Commissioner Porter has
worked tirelessly to better
the quality of lives of the
people she represents. Her


major accomplishments in-
clude establishing the Co-
lumbia County Fire De-
partment, increasing the
funding for the Senior
Lifestyle Enrichment Cen-
ter, developing a new chil-
dren's park in her commu-
nity, and helping to bring
in more than $30 million
in new job salaries.
Porter has served as a
board member of the
American Cancer Society,
as the chair of the United
Way Campaign in 2007,
on the Suwannee Valley
Transit Authority, on the
Third Judicial Circuit
Nominating Commission,
on the Florida State Med-
ical Examiner's Commis-
sion and as a member of
the Advisory Council for
Safe and Drug Free
Schools.
Porter graduated from
Florida State University
with a bachelor of arts in
communication. She re-
sides in Lake City with her
husband of more than 20
years, Andrew, and their
two children.

on his behalf except Judy
Ascough, one of the
landowners seeking the
special exception.
Heburn said the facili-
ty, to be called Jesus'
Helping Hands Ministry,
was a 90-day faith-based
program to give home-
less men and former
male inmates a chance to
gain employment and get
on their feet. Residents
would pay $75-$100 per
week to room at the fa-
cility.
Heburn called the fa-
cility a rooming/boarding
house for men who are
"down on their luck,"
but several neighbors
were concerned that
Heburn was proposing to
open what they charac-
terized as a halfway

hood.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH




Q: Do dentists take precautions against
infection in their offices?
A: Dentists follow many established
practices to protect their patients and
staff from infection. Not only does the
American Dental Association have
procedures for its members to follow, but
state and federal governments set
standards as well. Dentists will, at least
once a day, disinfect all office surfaces -
door handles, countertops, waiting-room
furniture. The dental chair you sit in will be
disinfected after each patient and the
headrest will be covered with a fresh,
sterile paper dressing The dentist,
hygienist and any other dental assistants
should wear facemasks that cover their
mouths and noses and they also should
wear new, sterile hypoallergenic latex
gloves for each patient.
Before treating each patient, and every
time the dentist works with any sort of non-
sterile material, like paper records, the
dentist should wash his hands with
antimicrobial soap or an antiseptic and put
on a new pair of gloves. The federal
Centers for Disease Control consider hand
hygiene the most important factor in
preventing the spread of organisms. Ask
your dentist about precautions in place at
er office.

conduct background
checks on inmates to in-
sure they weren't sexual
predators, murders or re-
peat offenders.
John Chambliss, a plan-
ning and zoning board
member, asked Heburn if
he would have a security
officer on staff.
"You need somebody
capable of enforcing the
rules," Chambliss said.
Sheriff Tony Cameron
said deputies could not
provide assistance to the
facility unless a crime
was committed.
"We cannot enforce any
rule that he has,"
Cameron said.
Dan Lewis, whose
property adjoins the pro-
posed site, questioned the
safety of the facility.
"These people could
get out at night and roam
around if they wanted


to," Lewis said.
Heburn said the resi-
dents would be super-
vised 24 hours a day.
Other neighbors ques-
tioned whether the facili-
ty would be non-profit.
"I will be making no
profit," Heburn said. "If I
have extra .money it
would go toward helping
people."
David Lane, a planning
and zoning board mem-
ber, asked whether
Heburn had liability in-
surance.
Ascough said that she
had a $500,000 policy to
cover the facility.
"I thought that would
be sufficient for this
need," Ascough said.
"That insurance does
not provide coverage for
Scott Heburn and this
ministry; they're not
named insurers are


they?" Sellers asked.
"No, they're not," As-
cough replied.
Sellers was concerned
that the zoriing change
would allow the As-
coughs to open a halfway
house if Heburn's mnin-
istry ceased to exist.
"You wanted to use
this facility as a halfway
house for prisoners, did-
n't you," Sellers asked
Ascough.
"Originally when we
purchased this property
that was my intention,"
Ascough said, adding she
has worked for the De-
partment of Corrections
to rehabilitate men by
giving them academic
and vocational skills.
Ascough said she and
her husband wanted to
open a facility as a min-
istry for former inmates.
"They were trained,

Treatments of Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is a condition of inflamed body joints. The
synovium lining becomes inflamed in response to the presence of
white blood cells. Cartilage, bone, tendons, and ligaments may be
damaged in response to this rheumatoid process. Eventual joint
destruction can occur. Signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis
include joint pain and swelling, fatigue, fever, and weight loss.
Smaller joints of the wrists, hands, ankles and feet are likely to be
affected first, followed by progression to other joints such as the
elbows, hips, and knees.
Although there is no cure available for rheumatoid arthritis,
treatments are available. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
(NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen and naproxen, are available both over-
the-counter and in prescription strength for the relief of pain and
inflammation. Disease- modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs)
are medications that work to decrease inflammation, pain, and joint
damage. Examples include hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) and
sulfasalazine (Azulfidine). Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha
blockers such as infliximab (Remicadc), etanercept (Enbrel), and
adaliimuiiab (IluiMnira) arc medications that stop the progression of
arthritis by blocking a step in Ithe inflammation process 4625-F

Wooley advises residents
to have a means of trans-
portation in' case of a storm
and to let family members
know where they will be
going. Residents should
also keep valuable papers
on hand.
The county provides
evacuation shelters at coun-
ty schools and also pro-
vides a pet-friendly shelter
at the Suwannee County


Coliseum. Some local
churches are on .standby, as
well.
Those with health condi-
tions and the elderly or
handicapped should pre-
register for the county's
special needs shelter. Those
with substandard housing
should make prior arrange-
ments to stay in a safe
place.
To pre-register for the

ter call the Emergency Op-
erations Center at 364-

Q You just put down carpet in
my home, what can I do to
keep it looking new longer?

A The most important thing you
can do for your carpet is to
vacuum it regularly, this removes dirt
particles which can dull the carpet fibers
through abrasion. Soil is the greatest
threat to your carpet's appearance. Using
entrance mats will help trap soil before it's
tracked into your hiome. Inunediately blot
up spills, never rub, scrub or brush the
spot. Lastly, clean your carpet using hot
water extraction before it begins to show
traffic patterns. If you follow these general
guidelines your carpet should continue to
look beautiful for a long time.

STEP RIGHT UP


A look back at this year's

Step up, Florida! activities


By Ma'r Ward
Healthy Communities, Healthy People coordinator
Suwannee County Health Department

"Step up; Florida!" events took place throughout
Suwannee County this spring. The hope is that Step up,
Florida! will spark an interest in physical activity and
opportunities in our community.
This year's main event was held at the Branford
Greenway Trailhead. Suwannee County Commissioner
Randy Hatch read the 2008 Step Up, Florida! proclamation
signed by the Suwannee County Board of County
Commissioners. The Suwannee Parks and Recreation
Department and the Suwannee County IHealth Department
facilitated the walk. Participants enjoyed cool water
provided by the Parks and Recreation Department and
healthy snacks provided by Publix. Participants also
received water bottles and T-shirts from the Suwannee
County Health Department. Vicki Meyers of DIVA's in
Branford led the group in some stretches and warm up
activities. Walkers and bicyclists were able to go at their
own pace and distance as they traveled north along the
beautiful Greenway Trail.
According to census information, 58 percent of
Suwannee County residents report not engaging in regular,
sustained physical activity. One of the goals of Step Up,
Florida! is to get people motivated to be physically active.
The Branford Greenway is a great place to walk or ride
bikes and can be enjoyed free of charge by the entire family.
For more information on Step Up, Florida!, Chronic
Disease prevention or Worksite Wellness, please contact
Mary Ward at the Suwannee County Health Department at

Get fit with gardening, dancing

Mary Ward, the Healthy
Conimmunities, Healthy People
coordinator, presented "Gardening for
your Health" to the University of
Florida/Suwannee County Extension
Master Gardenet Class. Gardening is a
great exercise and provides the double


benefit of being able to grow your
own healthy fruits and vegetables.
The University of Florida/Suwannee
County Extension Family and
Nutrition Program also highlighted
physical activity this month.
Coordinator Bonnie Box works with
classes at the Suwannee Primary


School, teaching students about proper
nutrition and how healthy lifestyles
benefit our body. Students learn
through a fun and creative curriculum
called "Organ Wise Guys."
Cathy Rogers, University of
Florida/Suwannee County extension
agent, also led a "Chair Dancing"


class at the local .library. Attendees
were able to exercise using the
support of their chair to fun and .
upbeat music. This is an energetic way
for persons who have difficulty doing
traditional exercises to get moving and
give their cardiovascular system a
workout.

participants some fundamentals
of off-road biking and then led
the group on an exciting ride
through the park. Participants
were able to practice some of
the skills taught by Liney on the
ride and experience the beauty

The Park also offered a "Brisk

The "Turtle Walk" was a big

The Fit Kids after school program
offered guest speakers and activities
from various agencies for the students
recently.
Katie Hadsock of Suwannee AHEC
taught the students about bone health.
Students learned that having the
proper nutrition and healthy lifestyles
now will help them avoid such
problems as osteoporosis later on in
life. Students were also able to put
together a life size skeleton of the
human body and learn where the bones
are located and how they work. In
addition to these activities, the
students were also able to test their
grip strength using a special machine.
Shenandoah Dairy provided milk for
all the kids.
Gloria Camejo with the Bright
Smiles Grant Program through the


Suwannee County Health Department
gave a presentation on oral health to
the Fit Kids. The presentation stressed
the importance of brushing and
flossing your teeth, plus proper
nutrition. After the presentation, the
students were provided with free oral
health kits.
Dana Esco of Suwannee Parks and
Recreation also made a presentation to
the "Fit Kids" about all the neat
summer programs the Recreation
center offers. Additionally, Suwannee
River State Park Manager, Craig
Liney, visited with the "Fit Kids" one
afternoon about the State Park and
educational and recreational activities
available there.

Sometimes you write a story,
but never follow it up. Babe
Ruth still has 714 home runs
and the NBA playoffs are still
going on. You hate to sound
like your father but this
Lakers-Celtics matchup ain't
what it used to be. Wilt vs.
Russell, Byrd vs. Magic. There
are no Elgins or Wests or
Jabbars. There is no Chief or
Hondo. It's Kobe vs. Pierce,
Allen and Garnett.
The NHL Stanley Cup
winner should be Detroit. The
last time I checked Gordie
Howe was still retired. At least
the Red Wings should take
some heat off the Tigers, the
greatest team there never was.
Pacman is still waiting to be
reinstated. He has paid his
$27,000 Las Vegas gambling


debt and needs a job. They are
getting ready to foreclose on
his home irn Tennessee. This is
a guy who took $80,000 to a
strip club and can't pay his
mortgage. Different priorities
for different people. Maybe
Deion will lend him some
money. He gave him his #21.
Manny Ramirez hits #500
and will auction off the ball,
money going to charity. Junior
Griffey is stuck on 599.
Injuries stopped him from
being stuck on 699. How many
home runs would Ted Williams
' have had if he'didn't serve in
two wars?
Joe Torre starts his 31st year
of managing and I remember
his baseball card when he was
a fat rookie catcher for the
Milwaukee Braves. Torre's
first job was as player/manager
for the Mets. Torre, Berra and
Stengel were the only ones to
manage the Mets and Yankees.
Two are in the Hall of Fame,
the other should get there
shortly.
The football season is less
than three months away. Some
guy named Usain Bolt is now
the fastest guy in the world.
Pro football teams used to look
for athletes like that. Henry
Carr, Bob Hayes and Ron
Brown come to mind. Sneaker
contracts make it such that
athletes like Bolt no longer
have to play football to get a
paycheck.
The US Open is two weeks
away. Tiger time!


Turkey callers strut their stuff


Submitted
If you walked into the fairgrounds during the
recent Suwannee County Fair and heard turkey
calls, you were in the right place.
The Suwannee River Strutters, the local chapter
affiliated with the National Wild Turkey
Federation, sponsored a turkey call contest at the
fair, Fourteen contestants in youth and adult
categories showed off their best turkey call to win
trophies and cash prizes.
Taking home $50 in cash and the first-place
trophy was David "Pablo" Hill. Hill, of Live Oak,
won the judges over by using a diaphragm turkey
call, also kiown as a mouth call, to make hen
* turkey sounds. His conquest did not come easy.
After making his calls as contestant No. 8, Hill
and contestant No. 7, Mike Hart, had to compete
against each other one more time for the four


judges to make the final decision.
Hill, a member of the Suwannee River Strutters
and wearing his long-sleeved committee member
shirt, was announced the winner and happily
accepted his trophy and money.
In the yputhicategory, six contestants, ages 12
and under, competed using various call methods,
from call boxes to slates. Bryson Fletcher was
announced as the winner. He also received $50 in
cash and a large trophy.
The Suwannee River Strutters have sponsored
this event for the past two years. The event was
free and open to anyone interested. The
contestants did not have to possess any previous
skills, as Suwannee River Strutters President John
Baucom willingly showed contestants how to

Wilmington station among industry leaders in digital transition


WILMINGTON, N.C. North
Carolina Fox-TV affiliate
WSFX is joining a
groundbreaking early transition
to all digital broadcasting on
-Sept. 8. The Wilmington market
has been singled out for this
early change to digital-only
broadcasting.
As part of this early transition,
WSFX is working in close
cooperation with other
broadcast, cable and satellite
providers in the market, as well
as the federal government, local
government and business and
civic groups.
"We could not be more*
pleased that WSFX is among the
industry's leaders in making this
important digital transition,"
said Donna Barrett, president


and chief executive officer of
Southeastern Media Holdings
Inc., which owns WSFX.
"This change will improve our
station's ability to serve its
advertisers and viewers, who are
the ultimate beneficiaries of an
all-digital market. It also reflects
an ongoing commitment at
WSFX to the highest standards
of quality in service to
Wilmington and the Cape Fear
region."
Federal Communications
Commission Chairman Kevin
Martin announced the
Wilmington market's transition
today in Washington, D.C. He
was joined by Barrett and
WSFX Vice President and
General Manager Thom
Postema.


Also in attendance were
Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo,
Wilmington Chamber of
Commerce President Connie
Majure-Rhett and other industry
and government representatives.
Commercial broadcasters
serving the Wilmington market -
NBC, FOX, ABC and CBS -
have voluntarily agreed to turn
off their analog, signals on Sept.
8. The commercial television
stations thereafter will broadcast
only digital signals to their
viewers in the five North
Carolina counties that comprise
the television market.
The DTV transition for the
rest of the country will take
place Feb. 17, 2009, when all
full-power television stations
must turn off their analog


signals and transmit only their
digital signals.
WSFX Vice President and
General Manager Thomrn
Postema said, "On behalf of
WSFX, Southeastern Media
Holdings and the FOX Network,
I am thrilled and honored with
the FCC announcement that the
Wilmington market will be the
first in the country to launch the
DTV test, beginning Sept. 8,
2008. WSFX is proud to be a
part of television broadcast
history and will make every
effort to ensure a smooth
transition for both our viewers
and advertisers."
Over-the-air viewers (those
who do not subscribe to cable or
satellite) should apply to the
National Telecommunications


and Information Administration
www.ntia.doc.gov/dtv/coupon
for coupons to obtain converters
for their analog sets.
For more information about
the transition, the public should
visit the FCC's Web site
dedicated to the national DTV
transition, www.dtv2009.gov, or

properly perform the calls.
As children and adults performed on stage,
patrons of the fair stopped to watch and
gathered to see which serious competitor
would win the trophies and prizes.
One such contestant was Mike Hart. Hart,
of Live Oak, won second place in the adult
division, taking home $25 and a trophy.
Anyone watching could see the concentration
on his face as he performed the "yelping" call
and the "fly down cackle." The former
involved Hart moving his arms diagonally
while making his turkey box call.
The turkey box call consists of creating
friction by sliding the lid across the top
surface of the box. Hart, a Suwannee Valley
Electrical Coop employee, said the "fly down


cackle" simulates when a hen turkey is in a
tree and flies down to the ground.
A member of the Suwannee River Strutters
since its beginning two years ago, Hart made
his own turkey box call made of mahogany
and walnut in January for hunting season.
"This is a lost art," he said. "1 can build
100 of these and they all have different
sounds."
The different sounds depend on the type of
wood used to make the box call. Hart,
wearing a baseball cap with a turkey on it,
added that the box call he used in the contest
is not finished and has not been sealed yet. A
real turkey-hunting enthusiast, he owns about
80 calls.
There are tons of turkey calls, according to
Baucom. He demonstrated some of the many
calls while the judges tallied the score behind

a black-curtained tent, including the "kee-kee
run," "yelp" and "cluck" calls.
The judges chose three winners in each
category based on who performed the best
turkey call. Contestant numbers were called
out so that the judges will not know the
names of the contestants.
Winning third place in the youth division
and $15 was Clayton Carrozza, 10, of Live
Oak. Second-place youth winner was Harley
Hill, who earned $25. Both Clayton and
Harley also took home a trophy. The third-
place adult winner was Chris Driver, winning
$15 and a trophy.
The Suwannee River Strutters began two
years ago and won a national level prize for
the largest first-year banquet in the country.
The group held the banquet in Live Oak and
had a record attendance of 450 members.

Loving pets for you from the Suwannee County Animal Shelter


Here at the shelter we are once
again over-run with kittens in
need of good homes. In addition
to those currently in the shelter,
we have quite a few that have
been in foster care and are now
ready to be adopted.
The first is "Ebony," black coat
with white markings that makes it
look like it's wearing a tuxedo
shirt, and littermate "Ivory," white
coat with lovely black markings.
Both are very playful, bright
eyed, and like to be held. Next is
"Sweetie," short for "Sweetheart,"
because of a white heart shaped
marking on its forehead and a
coat of several light colors, and its
litter mate "Blaze," so named
because of a white streak that runs


from the crown of its head down
to its nose, also with a coat of
several light colors. Then we have
"Mixer," because one front leg is
marked like an orange tabby, the
other marked like a gray tiger-.
striped kitten, and similar
markings on the rest of its body.
A couple of these kittens have.
short tails, one has practically no
tail, and all are lovable and
cuddly.
If any of these sound like one
you would like to have, call the
shelter and we'll make
arrangements for them to be
brought into the shelter for you to
see. But we also have quite a
variety of cats and kittens on site
waiting for you to come take them


home. Please make our shelter
one of your stops when you are
considering a new pet for your
home, whether it is a dog or cat.
The Suwannee County Animal
Shelter is located about eight
miles south of Live Oak at 11150
144th St.,'McAlpin, on the same
road as the large county landfill
off highway 129. We are open on
Monday from 9 a.m. to 3:30,p.m.,
on Tuesday through Friday from 9
a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and on
Saturday from 9 a.m. to about
noon. Please call first at 386-208-
0072 if you plan to come out on
Saturday to make sure someone is
still there.
We rely on volunteers to help
with the care of the shelter


animals, and the kind donations
from you, the citizens of
Suwannee County. Please be as
generous as you can with your
donations of money, animal food,
other supplies, and your
continued support of our shelter.
We are the only county animal
shelter in Suwannee County, with
only two animal control officers
to cover the entire county. Your
support is very important to us
and our animal residents.
And please, please, please ...
have your pet spayed or neutered.
Help us cut down on the number
of strays that continue to pour into
oui facility on a daily basis. God
bless!

Microgreens get Florida



farmers thinking small




Research at Suwannee IFAS station leads the way


Microgreens aren't the same,

as "sprouts" or regular young

vegetables. Only certain

vegetables can be grown as

microgreens, such as

arugula, radishes and kale.


Every year for nearly two
decades, Florida farmers
have gathered at the
Suwannee Valley Twilight
Field Day to hone their '
craft, often learning how to
grow more luscious and
larger fruits and vegetables.
This year, however, there
was a new lesson being
offered: how to grow small.
Dubbed one of 2008's
culinary btizzwords by
National Public Radio,
microgreens vegetables
harvested soon after
sprouting are expected to
be one of this summer's
hottest food trends, as well
as a boon to small specialty
farms that provide them to
restaurants and farmers'
markets.
Experts at the University
of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural
Sciences are helping
farmers take advantage of
the phenomenon.
"This interest in
microgreens is a
tremendous opportunity for
a lot of the small farmers in
Florida," said Robert
Hochmuth, an extension
agent at IFAS' North
Florida Research and
Education Center in Live
Oak, who led the M
microgreen session at a a!
recent field day. "But it's
not the same as growing
regular crops. There's a
learning curve involved."
Microgreens aren't the same
as "sprouts" or regular young
vegetables. Only certain
vegetables can be grown as
microgreens, such as arugula,
radishes and kale.
They are grown under
carefully controlled greenhouse
conditions on specially
textured fabric mats or other
growing medium. Irrigation
has to be meticulously
measured, and harvesting
perfect. timed


lalabar spinach microgreens ready for harvesting. Microgreens are vegetables grown under carefully controlled circumstances and harvested at young
ge. Booming demand for such produce may be a boon for many of Florida's small specialty farmers. Photo AP/Universityof Flonda/IFAS/Robert Hochmuth


The result is a tender,
colorful vegetable packed with
flavor as well as nutrients. In
the restaurant world, those
qualities make them ideal
ingredients for "designer
salads" that give diners a
unique culinary experience-
especially during the summer
months when salads typically
become more popular.
"It's so easy for salad to be
boring," said Anthony
Sicignano, the executive chef
of The Breakers Palm Beach.
"There are the tNpical
vegetable ingredients that form


the base. People try to dress
those up with toppings like *
cheese or meats or dressings -
things that often aren't what a
person looks for in a salad.
"If you can add vegetables
that add zest of flavor and
texture, though, you can create
a salad that tastes different and
wonderful, but without
violating the salad's basic
identity," he added.
While it's possible to grow
microgreens in small, personal
batches, like many home chefs
do %\ ith herbs, restaurant chefs
like Sicignano depend on small


farmers for large quantities and
variety.
"It can be a tricky business,"
said Denise Francis, who runs
the Twinn Bridges Farm in
Macclenny, with her husband,
Scott. The couple.has been
working with IFAS' Hochmuth
for the last three years to
develop a microgreen growing
program.
"The timing is everything,"
she said. "Parsley is usually
perfect at 25 days, while
radishes usually only take five.
Meanwhile, you have to plan
everything out so that the chefs


get the mixes of microgreens
that they like." ,
After much refinement,
however, she said her business
of supplying microgreens to
the Jacksonville area is
booming.
"This is a perfect example of
how small farms can offer a
real benefit to the local
community with quality,
'locally grown food,"
Hochmuth said. "Not only is it
healthier for us and the
environment, but it also makes
our taste buds happy at the
same time."

SPAYING AND
NEUTERING:
Experts say the most
important thing people can
do to help their pets is to
get them spayed or
neutered. This means the
animals get an operation,
to be sure they can't have
kittens or puppies. They
are asleep during the
operation, so they aren't
scared or in pain.
Spaying and neutering
are so important because
there are so many animals
needing care and not
enough homes or shelters
for them.
One cat or dog can have
many litters in its life. Its
kittens or puppies can have
many litters, too. This can
end up creating thousands
of new cats and dogs.

Finally an effective treatment for debilitating nerve pamin

New medication relieves diabetic neuropathy
It's often described as a burning, stabbing, shooting, tingling or shock-
like sensation. It's a chronic, debilitating condition that has left sufferers
frustrated and doctors puzzled with the lack of options to treat it.
Countless Americans have suffered from nerve-related pain in silence
with nowhere to turn for relief until now.
A topical pain reliever Neuragen, developed by Origin BioMed Inc., a
Halifax-based manufacturer of over-the-counter topical drug products, is
finally providing relief for sufferers of nerve pain.
An estimated 20 million Americans suffer from nerve pain. The
condition results from damage to or a dysfunction of the nervous system.
In some types of nerve pain, even the touch of clothing on involved skin
triggers an unbearable burning pain. It is often perplexing and frustrating
for patients and physicians, as it is difficult to diagnose and seems to
respond poorly to standard pain therapies.
Neuragen is a topical preparation scientifically studied since the early
1990s. Recent clinical studies at Louisiana State University have
confirmed the efficacy of Neuragen in the treatment of post-shingles
neuralgia and other types of nerve pain. It was found to provide
substantial relief in 85 percent of patients.
In another recent clinical trial for diabetic peripheral nerve pain, 70F.
percent of patients noted improvement in pain within minutes of
applying Neuragen. In a second trial for post-shingles pain, similar
results were reported where 68 percent of patients had pain relief within
15 minutes.
Neuragen is now available nationally through select CVS/pharmacy
stores and leading pharmacies across the country. The increased
availability of this effective treatment option is welcome news for
patients.
"There are few products available that provide relief from nerve pain,"
said Don Kyte, Pharmacist, Kyte's Pharmasave, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia,
"and these pain relievers generally produce side effects. The need is
therefore great for a product such as Neuragen which has demonstrated it
provides relief and has no known side effects because it's topical."
Many patients debilitated by their condition have found that Neuragen
has given them a substantial relief. "Nerve pain had taken over my life, it
never really went away," said Ron Morrison. "Neuragen provided relief
from the burning discomfort in my feet. I have been using this product
for the past four months and it continues to work. I can now enjoy
getting out for a walk and enjoy the simple things in life all over again.
More information on Neuragen is available at www.originbiomed.com.

A JOY-FILLED SUMMER


By Pam Campbell

f know that you can tell that summer
has arrived! The weather is hot, ,
school is out, people are having
picnics, going swimming, taking
vacations, children are playing, and the fourth of July
is on it's way!
I want to share with you the key to having a joy
filled summer! It is found right in the Bible in the book
of Thessalonians. "Live in peace with each other. And
we urge you, brothers warn those who are idle,
encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with
everyone. Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for
wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to
everyone else. Be joyful always; pray continually, give
thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for
you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:13b-18 When
we learn to live as we read here we will find that our
life becomes joyful, that things will work out the right
way, our families and friends will get along better, our
attitude will change, our whole relationship with Jesus
will grow, everything will seem brighter about our
lives, and your summer will be joyful!
First God tells us to live in peace with each other.
When the kids are home from school, relatives visit, or
your neighbors are having a noisy cookout, stay calm,
find things for the kids to do, enjoy your relatives, and
see if you can help your neighbor in anyway. Do
whatever you can to keep the peace. If you know
someone that is idle, do as God says, warn them to get
up, to do something productive, encourage those you
may know that are timid, help them to become self
confident. Many of us know someone that is weak,
take the time to help them get well, maybe you can
make them some food, or help them with something
they need done. The next part is one that many people
have trouble with, be patient with everyone. That
means that you are patient with people that call you on
the phone, when you are busy, patient while waiting.in
a long line, patient with cranky children, patient with
your family, friends, and neighbors all the time. Yes,
God says to be patient with everyone. He tells us very
clearly that we need to make sure that nobody pays
back wrong for another wrong, so next time someone
does something to us that we don't like, remember
don't go trying to do something to get back at them,
instead the Bible says try to be kind to each other and
everyone else. As a Christian, we certainly should
show kindness to everyone. One real nice thing that
anyone can do is simply share a smile with people that
you see, it will brighten up their day!
I really love the next part! "Be joyful always;" How
many of you are joyful always? I have noticed that
most people don't seem to be very joyful anymore.
Have any of you ever met someone that is a joy to be
around? I know a person that is always joyful, she is
full of enthusiasm, and very much joy! She is my
daughter, Jennifer. I know now you are thinking, I am
just a proud mother thinking that this is the case. Yes, I
am a proud mother, I am so thankful that God raised
Jennifer from the dead over 26 years ago and continues
to bless her life with much joy always, as she follows
him. When my husband and I picked Jennifer's name
we were still dating, we knew that we would name a
son after his daddy, and that if we had a daughter, her
name would be Jennifer Joy. I know that God tells us
that he knows us from before we were ever conceived,
he knows what we will do and what we will be like, he
is God, our creator. God knew that Joy had to be her
middle name, because her life is one of pure joy. I am
so thankful to read the notes and cards that she has
been receiving from her graduate school graduation,
and to have met some of the wonderful people that she
knows at her graduation party. I find that it is not only I
that see the joy that fills Jennifer, that joy and
enthusiasm is evident to all the people that meet her.
When people meet her they always notice her joy in
the way she does things, the way she treats others, the
way she lives her life. When she was a child, people
would tell us, just wait till she is a teenager, she will
become moody, she will change, not so, Jennifer's joy
continued to grow as a teenager, and still does today.

Joy is not just something that Jennifer can have, Jesus
will give his joy to all who desire to have it. To be
joyful always; means even when things go wrong, I
wish I was more like Jennifer, she can remain calm
when everything around her seems to fall apart, she
still is full of that wonderful. pure joy!
I believe that if we look at the next words of our
Lord we will find the key to that joy, "pray
continually." Now you may be wondering how in the
world God expects everyone to stay on their knees and
pray all the time. God does not expect you to stay on
your knees and pray and never do anything else. He
knows that we all have things that we must do, as a
matter of fact he just got done telling us things to do to
help others. What he means is that even when we are
working, playing, driving, relaxing, whatever we are
doing and wherever we are, we should always have our
minds on Jesus, pray, commune with him, talk to him,
take time even as we are busy with other things to ask
for his guidance and for his help. We should always
take time to get alone with him and spend some time in
prayer everyday as well. The more you talk to God the
easier it is and you will become so close to him that it
will be just as natural as we breathe to pray
continuously, because we will really know him well. I
know that When I am driving it is a great time to just
talk out loud to the Lord, or. if I am cleaning or
cooking, whatever you are doing, pray.
How many of you give thanks in ALL
circumstances? That is what the Lord tells us in verse
18. Wow! ALL circumstances, that means we need to


be able to give thanks when things fall apart around us,
on us, in us, when people fail us, when our plans fall
through, we must learn to thank God. We are not
thanking him for making something bad happen, but
we are to learn to thank him for being with us in every
circumstance." Being thankful is a very.important part
of our life. Another scripture in the Bible is Colossians
3:15 "Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since
as members of one body you were called to peace. And
be thankful." Here again, God talks about peace and
being thankful in the same. scripture.
The last of Thessalonians 5:18 says "for this is God's
will for you in Christ Jesus." It is God's will for you to
live in peace, to warn the idle, help the weak,
encourage the timid, to be patient with everyone, to
make sure that nobody pays back a wrong for another
wrong and to be kind to everyone! You are to be joyful
always, remember it is possible! We should pray
continually, even if we are on vacation, pray as you are
having fun, working, or driving or riding and take time
to set aside to get alone with the Lord and talk to him
personally as well.

This summer and all through your life, remember to
give thanks always, even if it rains on your picnic, or
someone is sick, your plans have to change, be
thankful, you are still blessed. God says that this is the
will of God for all of us in Christ Jesus, so we know
that if we follow the words here in 1 Thessalonians
5:13b-18 we will be following Jesus, the one who gives
us his peace and his great joy! Have a joy filled
summer!

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER


A JOYFUL SUMMER


By Pam Campbell


Hey kids! Summer has arrived! It's
time for hot weather, picnics,
swimming, camps, maybe taking a
vacation, playing outside, going fishing,
sleeping late, it's a time to enjoy your
family, friends and all the activities of
summer! Most of you are probably glad
that school is out!
I want to share with you the key to
having a joyful summer! It is found
right in the Bible in the book of
Thessalonians! "Live in peace with each
other. And we urge you, brothers warn
those who are idle, encourage the timid,
help the weak, be patient with everyone.
Make sure that nobody pays back wrong
for wrong, but always try to be kind to
each other and to everyone else. Be
joyful always; pray continually, give
thanks in all circumstances, for this is
God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 1
Thessalonians 5:13b-18 If you learn to
live like God tells us in these verses in
the Bible then everything will seem
brighter and happier in your life, and
your summer will be joyful!
First God tells us to live in peace with
each other. That means to get along with
everyone, to play well together, to be
nice to your family and friends, and not
whine or complain. If you know
someone that is idle, you know someone
that is lazy or won't work, do as God
says, try to tell them they should find
some work to do, encourage people that
are timid or shy. Many of us know
someone that is weak, take the time to
help them get well, maybe you can
make them a card to let them know you
care. The next part is one that many
people have trouble with,
be patient with everyone.
If your mom or dad tell
you to wait, be patient
and. wait without
complaining, whatever is
going on, have patience
things will get better.
God tells us very
clearly that we need to
make sure that if someone
does something to us that
we don't like, we should
not try to do something to
get back at them, instead
the Bible says try to be
kind to them. One real
nice thing that you can do
is simply share a smile with people that
you see, it will brighten up their day!
I really love the next part! "Be joyful
always;" How many of you are joyful
always? I have noticed that most people,
even some kids don't seem to be very
joyful anymore. Have any of you ever
met someone that is a joy to be around?
I know a person that is always joyful,
she is full of enthusiasm, and very much
joy! She is my daughter, Jennifer Joy.
Her middle name Joy fits her well,
because when people meet her they
always notice her joy in the way she
does things, the way she treats others,
the way she lives her life. Joy is not just
something that Jennifer can have, Jesus
will give his joy to all who desire to
have it. To be joyful always, means
even when things go wrong, I wish I
was more like Jennifer, she can remain
calm when everything around her seems
to fall apart, she still is full of that
wonderful joy!
The key to joy, is "pray continually."
Now you may be wondering how in the
world God expects everyone to stay on
their knees and pray all the time. God
does not expect you to stay on your
knees and pray. God means that you
should have your mind on Jesus, and
talk to him while we are doing other


things, and thanking him in our minds,
asking him to show us what to do,
actually knowing Jesus. It is important
to take time to just pray also.
How many of you give thanks in ALL
circumstances? Wow! Giving thanks
ALL the time, that means we need to be
able to give thanks when things don't go
our way. We are not thanking him for
making something bad happen, but we
are to learn to thank him for being with
us in everything..
The last of Thessalonians 5:18 says
"for this is God's will for you in Christ
Jesus." It is God's will for you to live in
peace, to warn the lazy, help the weak or
sick, encourage the shy, to be patient
with everyone, to make sure that you do
not do something to get back at
somebody else for something they did,
and to be kind to everyone. You are to
be joyful always, remember it is
possible!
This summer and all through your
life, remember to give thanks always,
even if it rains on your picnic, or
someone is sick, or your plans have to
change, be thankful, you are still
blessed. God says that this is the will of
God for all of us in Christ Jesus, so we
know that if we follow the words here
in the Bible we will be following Jesus,
the one who gives us his peace and his
great joy!
All summer long, hope you have
many fun and happy, wonderful times,
but most of all I hope you have God's
peace and his abundant joy! Follow the
words God gives in the Bible and you
will have a joyful summer!

.W,,O,,?


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 Lyrido6n dhnson. TliheAt was theffrpdated-with theElectronic
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. 43148.F
