E ack in the 1960's and
I- 70's, long before he
won a seat on the Live
... Oak City Council, Don
Boyette worked as an
enforcement agent for the Florida
Beverage Department.
One of his main responsibilities
was to hunt down moonshiners.
Agents would spot stills from an
airplane or by roaming through the
woods on foot. They also relied on
informants.
Once a still was located, the
agents would comb the site for clues
to when the next production run was
scheduled, while trying to leave the
scene without a trace.
"If they went in there and found
one of their strings broke or some-
thing out of place then they would
just abandon it," Boyette said.
The next step was to wait.

Suwannee High School Land Lab in

daughter, De Townsend, is FFA advi-
sor at SHS, spends many a day at the
lab. Soon he'll have even more time
to spend there. Boyette did not seek
re-election to the Live Oak City Coun-
cil, and his seat will be filled by Ed
Rewis, who will be sworn in this July.

Christine Boatright receives $2,000 scholarship
from Florida Library Association


Christine Boatright

Christine Boatright, an employee
with Suwannee River Regional Li-
brary System in Live Oak, was re-
cently awarded a $2,000 scholarship
from the Florida Library Association


at the annual conference in
St. Petersburg Beach. Each
year, the Florida Library As-
sociation awards three schol-
arships to Master's in Library
and Information Science
(MLIS) students: one each to
a Florida State University
(FSU) student, a University
of South Florida (USF) stu-
dent and a minority student.
Boatright will use the scholar-
ship to continue the pursuit of
34 her master's degree from the
FSU College of Information
with plans to graduate in De-
cember 2008.
Boatright began working
towards her master's degree
online in 2006. As a student
at FSU, she has been awarded
several grants and scholar-
ships and is a participant in
the Librarians Serving the
Public Scholarship Program.
This program teaches leadership, and
management skills to students plan-
ning to work in Florida public li-
braries.


A resident of Live Oak, Boatright
graduated from Suwannee High
School in 2000. She grew up with an
interest in public service and li-
braries, and decided, while attending
North Florida Community College
(NFCC), to pursue a library career.
After graduating from NFCC in
2003 with her associate's degree, she
transferred to FSU and completed
her bachelor's degree in history in
2005. She then took a year off from
her schooling to spend time with
husband, Adam, and daughter, Adri-
enne.
She.has worked full-time with the
circulation staff at the Live Oak li-
brary for the last three years. Linda

Avoid the sun when taking this acne drug
Acne is'a condition of the skin that can affect persons at any age,
although teenagers and women may be more likely to experience acne
due to hormonal fluctuations. Acne may appear as comedones,
papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts. Areas of the skin with a large
amount of oil glands, such as the face, chest, and back, are more
susceptible to the occurrence of acne. Acne may occur in response to
Ihe overproduction of oil, bacteria buildup, or shedding of skin cells.
A variety of treatment options are available for the varying -levels of
severity. Different treatments may work to decrease the production of
oil, increase cell turnover, decrease inflammation, or to fight bacteria.
Treatments available over-the-counter for mild acne include topical
products containing the active ingredients benzoyl peroxide; suifili;
resorcinol, and salicylic acid. Topical treatments available with a
prescription include tretinoin (Retin-A) and adapalene (Differin).
Isotfrtinoin (Accutane) is a medication available to treat severe acne.
Sunlight and artificial UV ray exposure should be avoided during
treatment with this medication, as it maiy make the skin more sensitive
to sunlight and increase the risk of sunburn. This medication also may
cause severe birth defects, and therefore must not be taken by women
who are pregnant or who may become pregnant.

TohriEll a mockingWbi
To thrill a mockilngbilrd


By James R. Bezaire
In this age of high speed internet, faxes,
accelerator cards, faster computer
processors and electronic gadgets, it is


next to impossible for many people to just
take the time to be. The psalmist writes,
"Be still, and know that I am God" (Psalm
46:10). How can we take the time to be
still, when our minds are racing
somewhere out in cyberspace? Back in the
seventies, one of the predominant
concerns of the pundits in our society was
what people would do with the leisure
time they would have as a result of all the
modern conveniences. Do you find
yourself with a lot of free time?
Last week, my wife Pat and I observed
two mockingbirds performing a mating
dance in our backyard. We sat and
watched them bouncing and shuffling
together in sequence and We wondered
how many people have ever seen this
remarkable courting ritual. We were both
thrilled by this theatrical display. There is


so much in nature that we miss because
we are either glued to our cell phones or
spend much of our time staring at TV and
computer screens.
I have lived and worked in Detroit,
Toronto, Sydney, Houston, Chicago and
Miami. 1 have nothing against big cities,
but it has only been since living on a small
farm in Wellborn, Florida that I have been
able to stand and stare and observe the
beauty of God's creation. I thought of a
poem by the late William Henry Davies
that I read as a child:

LEISURE

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty's glance,


And watch her feet, how they can
dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

There are many places in this great
world of ours where we can take the time
to stand and stare. Wellborn, Florida
offers me that place and time. Wellborn is
a sleepy little hamlet that comes alive the
first weekend in June for the Annual
Blueberry Festival and at Thanksgiving
and Christmas when people in the
community reach out to assist those less
fortunate. The Wellborn Neighborhood
Watch and the Wellborn Community
Association are constantly seeking
different ways to help others in the area.
The people in Wellborn care about one
another. But what I appreciate most if that
Wellborn is where I can take the time to
be and to simply stand and stare at the
mystery of God's creation and maybe
even dance a little, even if I don't hop and
shuffle nearly as well as a mockingbird.


Suwannee Valley Community Foundation

contributes $10,00 to tornado recovery


Submitted
The advisory board of the Suwannee
Valley Community Foundation approved a
grant in the amount of $10,000 to the
Suwannee Valley Long-Term Recovery
Committee/United Way of Suwannee
Valley, Inc. to help support the
community's rebuilding efforts as a result
of the tornado that struck Lake City in
March, 2008.
"The purpose of the Foundation is to
secure, manage and distribute
philanthropic resources in support of
building a better community," said
Advisory Board President Tom Brown.
"Our local United Way has established a
history of assisting disaster survivors and
the Suwannee Valley Community
Foundation is proud to assist them in this
recovery process as part of our mission to
serve the community."
Grants from the Community Foundation
gift will be used to underwrite costs
associated with "getting people back in
their homes," which are not covered by
state funds from Community
Development Block Grants or the State


Housing Initiatives
Program. These costs
include: replacement costs
for household items
(furniture and/or
appliances); expenses
related to clearing titles to
property; and the costs of
repairs which do not
qualify for federal or state
assistance. Rita Dopp,
executive director of the
United Way of Suwannee
Valley, Inc., stated "We are
very pleased that The
Suwannee Valley
Community Foundation is
joining us in rebuilding our
community after this
horrible devastation. The
grant will enable us to
provide a deeper level of
services to those
individuals who were
displaced from their homes
as a result of the tornado."
Distributions from the fund
will be made by The
Suwannee Valley Long

Horse Liniment
Erases Pain
HIALEAH, FL -An ingredi-
ent often used to treat inflamma-
tion in race horse legs, is now back
on the market in its original doc-
tor recommended clinical strength
formula.
According to a national drug
store. survey, the formula at one
time became so popular that it rose
to the top of pharmacy sales for
topical pain relievers. But the
company marketing the product at
the time changed the formula and
sales plummeted. One of the in-
ventors of the original formula has
brought it back to the market un-
der the trade name ARTH AR-
REST and says it can relieve pain
for millions.
ARTH ARREST works by a
dual mechanism whereby one in-
Sgredient relieves pain immedi-
ately, while a second ingredient
seeks out and destroys the pain
messenger signal before it can be
sent to the brain. Considered a
medical miracle by some, the
ARTH ARREST formula is use-
ful in the treatment ofpainful dis-
orders ranging from minor aches
and pains to more serious condi-
tions such as arthritis, bursitis,
rheumatism, tendonitis, and more.
ARTH ARREST is available in

A gardener's dream come true


Gardening tips

from the Live h- .

Garden Club

By Lucille Bobiney Heinrich
No doubt you have noticed
these colorful shrubs full of
lovely red and pink blooms at
your local nurseries, and once
you see one of these compact,
colorful bushes in your
neighbor's garden or in the
community, you'll want a few
for your garden. When first
introduced these patented shrub
roses came with single blooms,
but now can be found with
double blooms in shades of pink
and red. Another variety called
"rainbow" comes with a single
bloom in shades of yellow,
white and pink.
This shrub rose is resistant to
black-spot, Japanese beetle,
leafhopper and several other
insects and diseases. A mature
plant's leaf tips will turn to
burgundy in the fall adding
color and attracting birds.
Knock out roses are early
bloomers and will bloom
throughout the heat of the
summer. It has tough foliage, is
drought tolerant upon
establishment and is a winter
hardy shrub. Knock out roses
are vigorous shrubs perfect for
borders, containers, hedges and
accents. They are hardy down to


-20 F, Zones 4-9. This plant
thrives in humid clipnates wh(
most other plants require spra
and maintenance. Our North
Florida climate is
perfect for the knock
out rose!
You don't have to
waste time removing
old flowers from this
blooming machine
that takes the
maintenance out of
roses. They bloom for
months and are self-
cleaning, which
means no
deadheading. This
non-stop blooming
rose is the perfect
companion to other
flowering shrubs,
roses, and perennials.
Plant anywhere you
have five or more
hours of direct
sunlight each day. The
best blooming will be
in full sun, but if you
have areas of dappled
or seasonal shade,
your local nursery can
recommend some
varieties that will
flourish for you under
these conditions.
These shrub roses
are heavy feeders and
need to be fertilized
monthly from March
until early September.


Use a quality commercial
fertilizer and remember that
they will require additional
magnesium as the soil in our

OURV
Suwannee Democrat


Ranting


and


raving

The Rant and Rave column,
which appears in Friday edi-
tions, may be the Democrat's
most popular feature (next to
the Arrest Report). Folks call
or write in with complaints of
all kinds. And since they
don't have to sign their
names, they generally don't
hold back.
Sometimes they should.
Many of the rants we receive
(as a recent caller noted, there
are very few "raves") just
aren't printable. Not because
of foul or obscene language -
though we get that too but
due to inappropriate subject
matter. Folks phone in about
rude coworkers, noisy neigh-
bors and inconsiderate
boyfriends. Those submis-
sions never see the light of
day. Neither do accusations
of criminal behavior leveled
at private individuals. Rant
and Rave is a public forum
designed for the frank discus-
sion of public issues. You can
generally say what you want
about elected officials, or
those whose jobs place them
in the public eye, as long
you're focused on some as-
pect of that individual's offi-
cial duties. In other words,
you can't call in to accuse an
elected official of cheating on
his or her taxes. If you have
proof, go to the IRS.
In any case, we feel the col-
umn serves an important pub-
lic function. Letters to the ed-
itor may have more credibili-
ty, since they have to be
signed, but not everyone with
a legitimate beef feels confi-
dent enough to come forward
in a public forum. These
folks have a right to be heard
too.
We love hearing what's on
your mind, folks. Keep those


calls coming (and throw in a
few raves once in a while).
But remember, keep it brief.
Ramble on too long, and your
submission won't be pub-
lished. We have to leave
room for other folks to have
their say.

Rain barrels:

An idea whose time


has come
At one time rain barrels
were a common sight in
farms and small towns all
across the country. Water
is a precious commodity
not to be wasted, and the
rainwater collected in
these barrels was used to
water vegetable gardens
and provide water for
small livestock. Farm-
women also knew that this
soft rainwater was good
for washing and rinsing
their hair.
Today, the practice of
collecting rainwater has
come to the cities of
America, and the use of
rain barrels in city and
country homes is experi-
encing a renaissance. If
you have gutters and
downspouts, collecting
rainwater is a good conser-


(again)
vation technique. Not only
can a rain barrel provide
water for plants, but the
rain barrel can be decorat-
ed to add color and interest
to your garden.
Recently, Shirley Frow-
ick, Live Oak Garden Club
member, constructed sev-
eral rain barrels, sold them
at the club's annual plant
sale, and distributed the
design plans to the com-
munity. Frowick decorated
one of the barrels on
which the Garden Club
sold chances. Cheryl Brin-
son was the lucky wiriner
of this rain barrel.
If you want the instruc-
tions of how to construct a
rain barrel or information
regarding purchasing a
barrel, please contact any
Garden Club member.

After 16 years on
the city council,
Don Boyette is
saying goodbye

to public life

Continued From Page 1A

"We'd just go in there and hide
in the woods and wait on them,
sometimes for a day, two days,"
he said. "I've sat on a still for as
much as a week waiting on them
to come in and run it."
Once moonshiners returned to
operate the still, agents would
show themselves and make ar-
rests. Or try to.
Boyette recalls that one of his
most difficult pursuits involved
chasing a 17-year-old boy into the'
Suwannee River before appre-
hending him. Agents had discov-
ered the site in Georgia after hear-
ing the pump that was sucking
water from the river.
Boyette chased the young
moonshiner for 20 minutes
through the woods before the boy
dove into the river. Boyette, about
25 at the time, dove in after him.
"He tried to push me under and


that ticked me off," Boyette said.
"I just locked my legs around his
neck and just sat on him until he
just went limp."
When Boyette let the boy up for
air he continued to swing at him.
Boyette had to hold him under the
water a few more times to tire
him out.
"Finally I just drug him out and
handcuffed him to a tree," Boyette
said.
After the altercation Boyette
was so thirsty he downed some
moonshine. It was during heat of
summer and the team had run out
of water.
"I just grabbed up that jug and I
chug-a-lugged me about a half a
pint of that stuff and then I got the
dry heaves," he said. "That's the
sickest I've ever been."
Boyette said the Florida Bever-
age Department eventually gained
the trust of then Florida Gov.
Claude Kirk Jr. and the depart-
ment was assigned to work with a
private detective firm Kirk hired
to investigate other state agencies.
"He really didn't trust no state
agency to investigate other en-
forcement agencies," Boyette
said.
Boyette farmed for many years.
He also worked as a correctional
officer and later as a food service


instructor at Florida State Prison.
He ran a business Boyette's
Guns and Tackle formerly lo-
cated across -from Golden Coral.
Boyette also served on the city
zoning board.
Boyette said the main reason he
decided to run for city council
was to help reconstitute the Live
Oak Police Department.
"They had contracted with the
Suwannee County Sheriff's Office
to enforce the ordinances of the
city of Live Oak and it just flat
wasn't being done," he said.
The question of reconstituting
the LOPD was later put on the
ballot and approved by voters.
Boyette said through his efforts
on the council he helped push the
city to address flooding problems
in Live Oak.
"When we got three or four
inches of rain, water was coming
in people's houses," he said.
A storm water fee was later is-
sued to fund flood mitigation in
the city.
Boyette, 69, will now spend his
days working at the Suwannee
High FFA Land Lab and complet-
ing "honey-dos" assigned by his
wife, Shirley.
"I ran in '92 and got elected_
and I'm unelected at the end of
this month," he said.


Attempted murder conviction nets life

Live Oak, guilty of at-
tempted murder in Febru-
ary for shooting Anthony
Brown, also of Live Oak.
Arnold was booked into
the Suwannee County Jail
on charges of attempted
murder in the second de-
gree with a firearm, shoot-
ing into an occupied vehi-
cle and possession of a
firearm by a convicted


felon.
He was sentenced to life
in prison for count one, for
which he received a 20
year minimum mandatory
sentence. He will serve 15
years for count two (shoot-
ing into an occupied vehi-
cle) to run concurrently
with count one. He will
serve 15 years for count
three (possession of a
firearm by a convicted
felon) to run concurrently


with counts one and two.
Arnold will pay more than
$40,000 in court costs and
other fees.
Sheriff Tony Cameron
said Arnold fired 13 shots
at the victim, wounding
him in the neck, leg and
arm with a handgun.
Arnold also fired several
rounds into Brown's car,
occupied by Brown and
James Lee Grant Owens,
say reports.


Cameron said Brown
showed up unwelcome at
the home of Arnold and
his wife in violation of a
restraining order. Brown
was a former boyfriend of
Arnold's wife, said
Cameron. Arnold came
home to find Brown at
the home and then shot at
him.
Brown has recovered
from his wounds, said
Cameron.

of alcohol.
According to reports,
deputy John Zimmermann
of the sheriff's office re-
sponded to a call at Boy-
ington's home from a
man who had reported
shooting someone. When
Zimmermann arrived he
found Balint lying in the
road wounded. Upon fur-
ther investigation, Boy-
ington was arrested and
charged.

Cameron said the re-
mains might be those of an
individual who drowned
several years back.
"Tannic acid had dark-
ened the bones so we
knew they had been there
a long time," Cameron
said. Tannic acid is what
gives the Suwannee-its
unique color.


Cameron said authorities
surveyed the underwater
scene with a video camera
before removing the re-
mains.
The remains have been
taken to a medical examin-
er. Dental records are be-
ing sought to verify the
victim's identity.
"It may take months to
identify the person,"
Cameron said.

SPORTS COMMENTARY


"The thrill of victory..."


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels

"...and the agony of
defeat." Words made famous
by Jim McKay, in my opinion
the greatest sportscaster ever.
Those who are not sports fans
may remember him as the
journalist who stayed on the
air live for 16 hours reporting
the massacre at the 1972
Munich Olympics. But my
memories are more pleasant.
If you were a kid in the 60's
who lived and died sports,
ABC'S Wide World of Sports
was your Saturday afternoon,
if the weather didn't allow
you outside.
There was no cable or
satellite and I was lucky to
get channel 7, ABC New


York.
What made McKay so great
was this guy was doing
bobsled racing one week and
curling the next. He did: the
Open, the Derby, the Indy, the
Olympics: National,
International, turf, water, ice,
it didn't matter. I cannot
imagine anyone in today's
sports market having the
general sports knowledge to
broadcast professionally and
thoroughly sports you may
never have heard of. Who
knew what slalom meant?
What does it mean, 'he won
by five lengths'? The names
McKay had to pronounce in
international ski jumping
were enough to earn him
recognition into the
broadcasters hall of fame.
As TV expanded and the
big three football, baseball
and basketball took over
the airways, McKay was lost
in the shuffle by the Pat
Summeralls, Howard Cosells
and Mary Alberts of the
world. Can you really
imagine John Madden talking
figure skating, or Dan Patrick
covering Acapulco cliff
diving. Maybe Curt Gowdy
could have done it, but not
too many others.
Jim McKay is gone giving
tips to Red Barber, Mel Allen
and Lindsey Nelson on how
to broadcast angel cloud
diving.

this was our first exposition.
with an all-hazard public
safety theme," said .
Suwannee County .
Emergency Management
Director Johnny Wooley.
"So I think we had a good
turnout, with between 200
and 225 people attending." ..w
The "all-hazard" focus
was indeed broad, from
hurricane warnings to
forest fire evacuation
planning. To help promote
interest, the county's public
elementary schools held a

Shands Live Oak employees on hand



to accept Governor's Sterling Award


Two Shands Live Oak
employees traveled with dozens
of their Shands HealthCare
colleagues to Orlando recently
to accept the prestigious
Governor's Sterling Award for
2008. In April, Governor Charlie
Crist, Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp
and the council announced that
Shands and four other
organizations had been selected
to receive the state's top honor
for performance excellence.
Shands Live Oak Hospital
Administrator Russell Test and
Director of Patient Care Services
Alicia Layne attended the
Florida Sterling Council's
annual banquet to represent the
hospital's role in winning the


prestigious award.
"I am honored to recognize
this year's Sterling Award
recipients," said Crist. "This
year's winners have
demonstrated their commitment
to improving the way they do
business. The process of
competing for the award alone
pushes for results."
Shands is the largest
organization ever to receive the
Sterling Award since its
introduction in 1993. Few
healthcare systems have been
recognized this way for quality,
outcomes and organizational
excellence. In March, 11
Sterling examiners met more
than 500 Shands employees in


interviews, focus groups and
spontaneous conversations at
Shands Live Oak and Shands'
seven other hospitals in
Gainesville, Jacksonville, Lake
City and Starke. The Sterling
team evaluated Shands in seven
key areas: leadership, strategic
planning, customer and market
focus, measurement, analysis
and knowledge management,
workforce focus, process
management and results.
Shands showed strong results
across all facilities for 80
percent of reported data,
consistently performing in the
top 25 percent in key healthcare
industry measures, with some
approaching the top 10 percent,


or benchmark
levels.
"The examiners
were very
impressed by our
passion for patient
care and the work
wri-, (in\ evrcf'\r "


we a U.o eve y uy,
said Jodi
Mansfield, Shands HealthCare
executive vice president and
chief operating officer. "They
concluded that many of our
systems are role-model best
practices in the healthcare
industry. They also provided us
with suggested improvements
that are reasonable, and we will
be taking action to improve
these processes."
Bette Brotherton, vice
president for Clinical
Improvement, and her team
helped complete Shands'
application for the award and
prepare the healthcare system
for the assessment.
"It's a huge honor to receive
such a prestigious award,"


Brotherton said. "The process
has been a great experience for
Shands and it confirms that we
are a role model for performance
excellence."
"This was such a team effort,
with staff from all Shands
facilities'connecting to showcase
the quality care and service we
provide. I'm honored to be part
of such a committed and
outstanding group of people
working at Shands," she said.
For 16 years, the Governor's
Sterling Award has recognized
organizations and businesses in
Florida that have successfully
achieved performance
superiority within their
management and operations. The
award is based on the National
Malcolm Baldrige Criteria for
Performance Excellence. Other
2008 Sterling Award winners
include the Hillsborough County
Tax Collector, Marion County
Sheriff's Office, Orange County
Clerk of Courts and The Ritz-
Carlton (Sarasota).

students Jump Rope for Heart


By Robin McMullen
SES Physical Education and JRFH
coordinator

Students at Suwannee
Elementary School participated in
Jump Rope for Heart recently,
collecting money to help fight heart
disease and stroke. All proceeds
went to the American Heart
Association. Students receive
various prizes from the American
Heart Association depending on
how much money they raised. This
year the students raised a grand
total of $4,298.
On the day of the event, students
came out to physical education and,
jumped rope while listening to
music and having a blast. After
they jump they got to cool off with
a freezer pop. The students had a


great time while participating for a
great cause.
This year's winners for
collecting the most money were:
Trevor Eddings from Mrs. B.
Carter's second grade class; Ethan
Gill from Mrs. Fry's second grade
class; and Ethan Guguere from
Mrs. Furry's third grade class.
Overall winners for collecting
the most money were: Trevor
Eddings from Mrs. B. Carter's
second grade class; and Ethan Gill
from Mrs. Fry's second grade class.
Class winners for collecting the
most money were: Mrs. Fry's
second grade class; and Mrs.
Hurst's third grade class.
The individual winners received
a $25 gift card from Wal-Mart and
the school winners received an
additional $25 gift card. The class


winners received a pizza party.
On behalf of the physical
education department, I would like
to thank the following people for
helping to make this year's event a
huge success: SES principals, Mrs.
Long and Mr. Bass, teachers and
staff for their support and
cooperation. I would also like to
thank the APT for purchasing
freezer pops for all the students
after they jumped.
Thank you to the parents,
students, community members and
everyone else that made this year's
event a huge success.

Restaurant




veteran brings



fresh ideas




to SOS Cafe



SOS Caf6 and Restaurant is

getting noticed in North

Florida and South Georgia


Submitted
G eorge Moore may be the new
guy around town, but he's an
old hand at the restaurant
business. Now he's working to make
the SOS Caf6 and Restaurant, at the
Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, one
of the best eating establishments
around.
Moore moves about the business as if
he's on skates, taking care of any
customer's needs, making sure the best
food is being served promptly,
providing a top-notch menu or training
employees on how to operate the brand
new computerized food ordering station
so every customer's order is prepared
without mistakes. And that's just the tip
of the iceberg when it comes to George
and his abilities as a restaurateur. "This
is my life," George says of his work in
restaurant management.
If you're one of the hundreds of
happy patrons who are enjoying the
SOS Caf6 and Restaurant these days,
you don't need any introduction to the
great food, service or to Moore. As
general manager of the full-service SOS
Caf6 and Restaurant, George has
brought a new era to eating out at the
SOSMP. The restaurant is open seven
days a week for lunch and dinner and
for breakfast Saturday and Sunday
mornings. Under George's
management, the restaurant serves
everything from steaks and seafood to
salads, burgers and sandwiches and is
it delicious!
With 19 years of restaurant
management in Hilton Head Island,
South Carolina, Moore brings to the
North Florida area and the SOSMP a
unique ability to please customers with
great food, fast and pleasant service and
the ability to serve large crowds with
ease.
Twice each week Monday and
Thursday there is karaoke at the
restaurant, and every Friday and
Saturday night there is live
entertainment, all of which draws big,
hungry crowds. The Colgate Country
Showdown's four shows in May packed
the house each Friday night and the
local finals June 20 and state finals Nov.


1 will be big nights as
people come to support
their favorite
contestants.
When there are
back-to-back festivals
each spring and fall,
the restaurant is in full
swing with crowds
throughout the day and
evening all to
George's liking as it's
just what he's.used to.
When George
arrived in Live Oak, it
was a different world
from the atmosphere
where he'd spent his
entire career. He still
hasn't slowed down a

bit, but he admits he's
getting used to seeing how it's done
Live Oak style and is enjoying the
change and the challenge of making the
SOS Caf6 and Restaurant even better
than it was.
With a restaurant that can serve
hundreds and hundreds in just one day
due to its size and staff, it's been a
challenge to come up with new menus,
new ideas and even new equipment.
But, taking it all in stride, George has
done just that in spite of arriving on
scene just a couple of weeks before
festival season began in March that can
bring up to 50,000 festival goers to the
SOSMP. And, just to welcome George
to the SOSMP, he promptly got the flu!
But, being the service-oriented guy he
is, he defeated the flu quickly and made
it through the spring festival season
without a hitch! George said he just
can't slow down and enjoys his work
immensely. He's proud of the changes
he's made. Together with the SOSMP,
he's make the restaurant a superb
business where excellence is to be
expected.
If you want to talk food and service,
George Moore is the man to see. But,
George can also talk stand-up comedy
and world-class soccer from personal
experience.
He's done stand-up comedy on
Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood with

household goods, furniture and toys. All
donations should be in good condition;
otherwise, they cannot sell them. Thank
you!
Volunteers are wanted and needed
four hours a week on the day of your
choice. Call to learn more. People are
always needed to hold, pet, love and
walk the homeless animals at the shel-
ter, so if you can't adopt you can always
come help in many other ways.
RECYCLING BINS:
Live Oak: There is a newspaper recy-
cling bin at 305 Pinewood Drive, Live.
Oak, just west of Johnson's
Appliance/Radio Shack.
Lee: Recycling bins are located at the
shelter at 1156 SE Bisbee Loop, Madi-
son (just South of Lee) for newspapers,
catalogs, paper, magazines and broken
down cardboard. All the money goes to
help the homeless animals.
SPAYING AND NEUTERING:
Experts say the most important thing
people can do to help their pets is to get
them spayed or neutered. This means
the animals get an operation, to be sure
they can't have kittens or puppies. They
are asleep during the operation, so they
aren't scared or in pain.
Spaying and neutering are so impor-
tant 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 creat-
ing thousands of new cats and dogs.
Featured animals for adoption:
Remember, do not
leave pets in vehicles
for any length of time
due to the heat and hu- If we C

Can You Live to be 150?

Antioxidants are Part of the Secret to Longevity


The French know and love their red wine. What they
may not know are the health benefits offered up in each
and every glass. Despite diets typically high in saturated
fat, the French have relatively low incidences of heart
disease and they may be living longer and feeling
younger. They could have the wine to thank for that
because of a relatively unknown antioxidant found in
the beverage: resveratrol.
Many people are familiar with the term antioxidant.
Antioxidants do just what their name implies remove
potentially damaging oxidizing agents from a living
organism. Oxygen, while needed for life on a whole,
deteriorates living organisms over time. It can also take
its toll on the body, leaving it susceptible to disease and
speeding up the aging process. The medical community
has determined that a diet high in antioxidant-rich foods
is important for overall health and for anti-aging
purposes. Known as'"nature's sponge," antioxidants
absorb and remove harmful free radicals from the body,
and generally promote youthful vigor and improved
general health.
Foods full of antioxidants tend to be vibrant colored
fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants are also found in
olive oil, flax seed, tea, and other foods and beverages.
An antioxidant making headlines these days is
resveratrol, found in the skin of grapes, and thus red
wine. Because red wine is fermented with grape skins
longer than is white wine, red wine contains more
resveratrol. But drinking wine is not the only, nor
optimal way to get the resveratrol the body needs.
David Sinclair is a Harvard medical researcher who
has spearheaded studies into the effects of resveratrol
on mice and people. He recently appeared on a Barbara
Walters television special expounding on the benefits of
resveratrol, including'it's propensity to reverse some
signs of aging. He explained to Walters that the benefits
to drinking wine are there, but a person would have to
consume 100 to 1000 bottles of red wine to equal the
amount of the resveratrol needed for profound health
improvements. Therefore, he has found a way to isolate
resveratrol and concentrate it so that it can be used in
supplement form.
In lab mice trials, scientists demonstrated that it kept
overfed mice from gaining weight, improved physical
endurance and speed, and seemed to slow down their
aging process. For individuals looking for a fountain of
youth and bolster overall health, resveratrol used in
conjunction with other antioxidants just may be the way
to go.
When Dr. Michael Pinkus, founder of the antioxidant
supplement Ultimate RedsTM heard about the health
benefits of resveratrol he just had to add the ingredient
to his product. His Ultimate Reds is one of the most


Resveratrol is found in red wine and, along with other antioxidants, can have anti-
aging and general health benefits.

powerful sources of fruit and vegetable anti-oxidants available
today because it incorporates 24 natural antioxidants and now
resveratrol. The product is actually a flavorful powder that mixes
into a great tasting beverage so it's easily absorbed and starts
working right away
When used in conjunction with a balanced low-fat diet and
exercise, Ultimate Reds can go a long. way to promoting vigor and
health. To learn more about using antioxidants and Ultimate Reds,
