safety director, says a post-fire
inspection revealed the addition

performed the final inspection
on the structure before its April

ations called for by Racow -
sealing a number of openings in
a smoke partition have been
made.
SThe fire began in the mechani-
cal room of the newly
constructed west wing of
the school on May"29 at

The Live Oak Garden Club sponsored a

the community. The workshop was held
on Thursday, May 29, and Saturday, May
31, at the Garden Club's building. More
than 55 persons attended.
Carolyn Saft, County Extension
Service, started the workshop off with a
presentation on basic botany. Lucille
Heinrich, Garden Club president,
demonstrated how to air layer plants.
Participants took turns starting new plants
using the air layering method. Dan
Gerencser and Randy Icaas, Nobles


b, Greenhouse gardeners,
Ib showed participants how to
Create eye catching
p container gardens, and then
gave everyone present an
opportunity to pot their
own container garden.
Bob Hochmuth, North Florida Research
and Education Center of Suwannee Valley,
passed around magnifying glasses and
taught everyone how to identify common
diseases and pests that plague flowering
and vegetable plants. The workshop
included pruning techniques taught by
Carolyn Saft. Both Ms. Saft and Mr.
Hochmuth teamed up to present a
demonstration using blue dye to
graphically illustrate how to effectively
fertilize and water lawns and plants.
Another gardening workshop is planned
to cover other topics, but, as yet, no date
has been determined.

By April Pinkard
The GFWC Woman's Club of Live
Oak held its final meeting of the year
early last month. The women
gathered before the adjournment of
the summer months, but still had a
few things to settle before they broke
for the summer.
New officers were installed as the
current officers stepped down to
make room for them. There was


nothing but heartfelt good wishes and
smiles as the new officers were voted
in.
Two honorary members Mary
Belle Clay and Eumera Taylor were
elected, and four new members were
also installed: Linda Oliva, Molly
Shaw, Marlene Mitchell and, April
Pinkard.
The ladies dined on a beautiful
luncheon and though Chief Buddy


Williams of the Live Oak Police
Department was the only man to
attend, he also enjoyed the luncheon
with the ladies. He also shared some
of his ideas for the schools' reading
program and teen police program.
The GFWC Woman's Club will
resume its regular regime in the fall,
but still continues to do works
through the community when
needed.

EXTENSION UPDATE



A new face at the Extension Office


By Elena Maria Toro
It is a privilege to introduce myself as
the new Agriculture and Natural
Resources Extension Agent here in
Suwannee County. I am grateful to have
been given the opportunity to serve in
this capacity and help bring all the
educational resources available from
University of Florida/IFAS Extension
Service to an outstanding farming
community.
To give you a little background, I have
been working with extension programs
related to livestock and forage
production systems for about six years. I


have worked with the United States
Agency for International ,
Development/Zamorano, UF Animal
Science Department faculty and more
recently with the Extension Service in
Columbia County for the past three
years. I received my bachelor's degree
in Agriculture with a focus on Beef
and Dairy Cattle Production from
Zamorano, a unique school with a.
- tradition of "learning by doing" and
i my master's degree in Agricultural
Education and Communication from
Sthe University of Florida.
I am in the process of planning a


series of educational programs that will include a
Pesticide Training School on July 24 at the Suwannee
Extension Office for individuals who need to apply for a
Pesticide Applicator's License or need continuing
education credits (CEU's) to renew their licenses.
Another program that will be offered is the advanced
version of the Growing Grower's Program for those
interested in vegetable production and marketing produce
at farmers markets and for subscription farming across
Northeast Florida.
I also want to take this opportunity to inform you that
the 11th Annual Hay and Farm Field Day organized by
the Northeast Florida Beef and Forage Group will be held
August 28 at WW Ranch in Jacksonville. This year's
program will include educational sessions for commercial
hay and beef cattle producers. For more information
about this program visit http://nfbfg.ifas.ufl.edu or call
our office and we will gladly mail you a brochure with all
the information.
Please don't hesitate to call me at 386-362-2771 or
email me at etoro@ufl.edu if you have any questions. I
look forward to diligently working for the agricultural
community of Suwannee County.

The Flag Day Movement
Several men and/or organizations played instrumental roles in the
establishment of a national Flag Day celebration. They are identified here in
chronological order.
1861, George Morris
The earliest reference to the suggestion of a "Flag Day" is cited in Kansas: a Cyclopedia
of State History, published by Standard Publishing Company of Chicago in 1912. It
credits George Morris of Hartford, Connecticut:
To George Morris of Hartford, Conn., is popularly given the credit of suggesting
"Flag Day," the occasion being in honor of the adoption of the American flag on June
14, 1777. The city of Hartford observed the day in 1861, carrying out a program of a
patriotic order, praying for the success of the Federal arms and the preservation of the
Union. The observance apparently did not become a tradition.
1885, Bernard J. Cigrand
Working as a grade school teacher in Waubeka, Wisconsin, in 1885, Cigrand held the
first recognized formal observance of Flag Day at Stony Hill School in Waubeka. The
school has been restored, and a bust of Cigrand also honors him at the National Flag Day
Americanism Center inAWaibek~.From the late 1880s on, Cigrand spoke around the
country promoting patriotism, respect for the flag, and the need for the annual
observance of a flag day on June 14, the day in 1777 that the Continental Congress
adopted the Stars and Stripes. He moved to Chicago to attend dental school and, in June
1886, first publicly proposed an annual observance of the birth of the United States flag
in an article titled "The Fourteenth of June," published in the Chicago Argus newspaper.
In June 1888, Cigrand advocated establishing the holiday in a speech before the "Sons of
America," a Chicago group. The organization founded a magazine, American Standard,
in order to promote reverence for American emblems. Cigrand was appointed editor-in-
chief and wrote articles in thefi'ieivgie as well as in other magazines and newspapers to
promote the holiday. On the third Saturday in June 1894, a public school children's
celebration of Flag Day took place in Chicago at Douglas, Garfield, Humboldt, Lincoln,
and Washington Parks. More than 300,000 children participated, and the celebration was
repeated the next year.[1] Cigrand became president of the American Flag Day
Association and later of the National Flag Day Society, which allowed him to promote
his cause with organizational backing. Cigrand once noted he had given 2,188 speeches
on patriotism and the flag. Cigrand lived in Batavia, Illinois, from 1913-1932.[2]
Cigrand generally is credited with being the "Father of Flag Day," with the. Chicago
Tribune noting that he "almost singlehandedly" established the holiday.
1888, William T Kerr
William T. Kerr, a resident of Collier Township, Pennsylvania, for a number of years,
founded the American Flag Day Association of Western Pennsylvania in 1888, and
became that organization's national chairman one year later, serving as such for fifty,
years. He attended President Harry S. Truman's 1949 signing of the Act of Congress that
formally established the observance.
1889, George Bolch
In 1889, the principal of a free kindergarten, George Bolch, celebrated the anniversary of
the Flag resolution at his New York City school. Soon the State Board of Education of
New York, the Betsy Ross House in Philadelphia, and the New York Society of the Sons
of the Revolution celebrated Flag Day, as well. [3]
1893, Elizabeth Duane Gillespie
In 1893, Elizabeth Duane Gillespie, a descendant of Benjamin Franklin and the president
of the Colonial Dames of Pennsylvania, attempted to have a resolution passed deeming
June 14 as Flag Day. That same year, the Colonial Dames of Pennsylvania were
responsible for a resolution passed requiring the American flag to be displayed on all
Philadelphia's public buildings. In 1937, Pennsylvania became the first state to make
Flag Day a legal holiday. [4]
1907, B.P.O.E.
On June 14, 1907, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks held a Flag Day
observance.

Executive Order of President

provided for the arrangement of the
stars in nine rows and stars staggered
horizontally and 11 rows. of stars
staggered vertically. This is the
current flag of the United States,
Hawaii was admitted as the 50th
.state on Aug. 21, 1959. The 27th flag

OLD GLORY
This famous name was coined by Captain Stephen Driver, a shipmaster,
of Salem, Mass. In 1831. As he was leaving on one of his many voyages
aboard the brig Charles Doggett and this one would climax with the
rescue of the mutineer of the Bounty. Some friends presented him with a
beautiful flag of 24 stars. As the banner opened to the ocean breeze for
the first time,
He exclaimed "OLD GLORY!'
Driver retired to Nashville in 1837, taking his treasured flag from his
sea days with him. By the time the Civil war erupted, almost everyone in
and around Nashville recognized Captain Driver's "OLD GLORY".
When Tennessee seceded from the Union, rebels were determined to
destroy his flag, but repeated searches revealed no trace of the hated
banner.
Then on Feb.25 1862, Union forces captured Nashville and raised the
American' flag over the capitol. It was a rather small ensign and
immediately
Folks began asking Captain Driver if "OLD GLORY" still existed.
Happy to have soldiers with him this time, Captain Driver went home and
began ripping at the seams of his bedcover. As the stitches holding the
guilt-top to the batting unraveled, the onlookers peered inside and saw the
24 starred original "OLD GLORY".
Captain Driver gently gathered up the flag and returned with the soldiers
to the capitol. Though he was 60 years old, he climbed up to the tower to
replace the smaller banner with his beloved flag. ThoSixth Ohio ..-
Regiment '' -.
Cheered and saluted and later adopted the nickname "OLD GLORY" as
their own, telling and re-telling the story of Captain Driver.
Captain Driver's grave is located in the old Nashville City Cemetery
and is one of three places authorized by an act of Congress where the flag
of the United States may be flown 24 hours a day.

Rant







dRave




Want to vent? .

Our hotline is open 24/7.

Suwannee Countians, it's tinie to speak your mind! How do
you do that? By calling the Suwannee Democrat Rant & Rave
hotline! The hotline never closes and is your way to let it out.

I'm writing this rant because I noticed this column is called
"Rants & Raves," but all I ever read are rants. Everyone is al-
ways talking about what they hate, but never about the positive
aspects of our city. People who are always negative are full of
crap and I hate them.
P.S. I hate irony too.

This is in response to the rant and rave comment in the June
6 edition about law enforcement not enforcing the seat belt law.
The individual who made the comment obviously did not do
any basic research on Florida's seat belt law, FS 316.614. The
statute is very clear in paragraph 8 that it is a secondary law.
What this means is that law enforcement cannot conduct a traf-
fic stop on a person solely because they are not restrained by a
seat belt. As citizens, we should be aware of what our laws are
and how they are enforced before we start saying law enforce-
ment is NOT doing their jobs. These law enforcement officers
work hard to help keep all citizens safe and we need to stop giv-
ing them a hard time because we think we know their jobs bet-
ter than they do.

Below is paragraph (8) of FS 316.614

(8) Any person who violates the provisions of this section
commits a nonmoving violation, punishable as provided in
chapter 318. However, except for violations of s. 316.613 and
paragraph (4)(a), enforcement of this section by state or local
law enforcement agencies must be accomplished only as a sec-
ondary action when a driver of a motor vehicle has been de-
tained for a suspected violation of another section of this chap-
ter, chapter 320, or chapter 322.

This is for the person who wanted to know why the police
aren't enforcing the seat belt law. It's because the seat belt law
is unconstitutional. A law that only affects you or me when I do
or don't do it is unconstitutional. Whether or not I wear.my seat-
belt has nothing to do with anybody but me. I'm the only one
that'll get hurt. This law was pushed through by the big insur-
ance companies because they don't like to pay. They don't like
to pay for anything.

This is in response to the. person wondering why the city of
Live Oak and the Suwannee County Sheriff's Department don't
enforce seatbelt laws. I hope they don't start wasting time on
such stupid mess as that when they got all this other stuff they
need.to be doing.

The picture of the street sign at the corner of Maple St. &
Ohio Ave. (US 129) is one block away from the picture of
Maple St. & Pine Ave. How can we leave the street sign on a
major US Highway in such bad condition when we are obvi-
ously replacing street signs in the same area? Would you know
where to turn onto Maple St. from Ohio Ave. if you were not fa-
miliar with the area? Please assist us in bringing this problem
to the attention of whoever is in charge of replacing damaged
signs. Thank you for your help.

To the Editor:
In the "Rant and Rave" a question was asked
about the collection site on Gold Kist Boulevard,
why did it not have a walk through gate?
'In the mid-1990s the county went to the collec-
tion site system, none of them were constructed
with walk through gates. I was elected to the Board
of County Commissioners in 2000, I saw that
Lafayette County had walk through gates at their'
collection sites, .I brought this information to the
Board of County Commissioners and we approved
installing gates at all the collection sites.
The collection site on Gold Kist Boulevard is

QUESTION OF

THE WEEK

FCAT scores in Suwannee
County are on the rise.
Do you feel the
quality of education
is improving here?


OPINION


Summer will officially -
begin next week bring- I
ing with it very hot and
dry conditions. I don't
care what the calendar '
says, summer is upon us ...
already. Man, has it been .
hot and dry. I was away
from the house several
days last week and when
I got back, my garden BY SONNY
looked like someone had
taken a blow torch to it. I started putting that ex-
pensive city water to the garden with the hope of
salvaging something. The worms and stink bugs
are also giving my garden a fit. Our family sure
enjoys th.se fresh vegetables but it looks like I'm
just going to have to give up farming. Thank good-
ness for the showers we received this week.
The Fall Festival Committee met last week and
began preparations for this year's event. We decid-
ed on a tentative date of October 25. Activities for
the event, which includes the scarecrow and pump-
kin pie cooking contest, were discussed. Hopefully
by getting an early start, we won't be under the
gun like last year. Plans are for a bigger and better
event this year. The committee will be asking for
sponsors and other support for the event. Please
help if asked. Thanks!
The city rented the Suwannee High, ELP class
members to paint many of the city's fire hydrants.
The fundraising event was called "rent a genius."
These students are some of the most talented stu-
dents from our school system. The monies they are
raising will go towards a trip to Washington D.C.
later this month. This project was done in conjunc-
tion with our downtown revitalization program.
Should you want to take advantage of this cheap
child labor, call Cheryl Mae Brinson at the school
board office. A big THANK YOU goes out to Fire
Chief Croft and the firefighters for coordinating
this project. We are certainly blessed to have such
a group of employees that are always willing to
help with projects that benefit the city of Live Oak.
Speaking of the downtown revitalization pro-
gram, the committee has met three times to identi-
fy goals and gather information. The purpose of
this committee is to make our core city more pleas-
ing and attractive to visitors and others that might
wish to relocate in the downtown area. Many areas
of concern have already been identified.
I signed a contract to rehab the brick portions of
Tuxedo and Pine Streets. These streets are original
to the city of Live Oak and have been in bad con-
dition for many years. Bad portions of these streets
will be given attention as well as new sidewalks on
each side of Tuxedo. The intention is not to make
the streets look brand new, just put them in a more
drivable condition. This.project will be funded
from the Community Redevelopment Agency bud-
get. Work began this week. Other street and side-
walk projects will follow.
Not only do our employees try to stay mentally
fit, they also strive to be in tip-top physical shape.
Theresa Smith was chosen as "member of the
month" and David Shapiro is the "employee of the
month" at the Suwannee Health and Fitness Cen-
ter. Good job, guys.
I was pleased to have a visit from David Mica,
Special Assistant to the Governor. I expressed
rather dramatically my concerns over the state cuts
and unfunded mandates placed upon the local gov-
ernments of Florida and especially the city of Live
Oak. It also gave me an opportunity to "poor
mouth" and request funding from discretionary
monies the Governor has at his disposal. Hopefully
we will have some luck there. We are always out
there looking for dollars to help save our residents


NOBLES


money.
Progress Energy is pro-
ceeding at full speed with
the building of a new, nat-
ural gas powered generat-
ing plant to replace the cur-
rent facility at Ellaville.
Many of you probably did-
n't even know we had one.
The new plant will be
much more environmental-
ly friendly than the old


power plant. A cleaner fuel and less impact on our
ground water and river resources. As you can
imagine, Progress Energy will have to overcome
many hurdles over the next years even before con-
struction on the plant begins. The plant will cost
approximately 1.2 billion dollars to construct. The
county should reap close to a million dollars in tax
revenue each year.
From all accounts, graduation went off without a
hitch. I commend the school administration for the
way the graduation ceremonies went. Yes, it was
hot but the ceremony got started on time and lasted
only an hour and fifteen minutes. The ceremonies
sure have changed over the years. In the olden
days, graduation was a solemn event. In the past,
graduating, classes were not as large and could be
l4eld inside. This is not possible today with the
large number of graduates. The ceremony being
held on the football field brings a football game
mentality. I saw all manner of dress from tank tops
to short shorts. I even saw a couple of chews and
spit cups. At least there were no coolers that I saw.
There was some cheering and whooping,, which is
expected and acceptable. I'm sure much of it came
from parents out of relief from those eighteen
years of hard labor I wrote about several weeks
ago. All and all, everything went well and every-
one is to be commended for your behavior. You
"done good."
June 14 is Flag Day. Get those symbols of our
country displayed as an expression of your love
and respect for our great nation. The "stars and
stripes" should fly from every house and business
in this nation. Were it not-for the sacrifices of hun-
dreds of thousands of our military, we could be fly-
ing the German Swastika. God bless our great na-
tion.
I was interested in reading an article in the
Suwannee Democrat about Ms. Lavelle Avery. The
article failed to mention that she has also been an
employee of the city of Live Oak for countless
years. She just didn't get paid. For years Ms. Avery
took care of the street along and in front of her
house. She would rake and even sweep the trash
and pine straw from the street. A countless number
of times she called and reported to me about the
debris covering the storm drains which caused the
street to flood. I would always go around there and
take care of the problem if she had not already
done so herself. Several times she would be out
there ankle or knee deep in water clearing the
drains herself. Thank you Ms. Lavelle for your car-
ing and hard work over the' years.
Fathers Day this Sunday, June 15. It is easy to
father a child. It's not easy to be a dad. Dads
should be the head of the family. Dads should be
the main provider and protector. Dads should be
:the glue that binds. Dads should love antl cherish
their children. How do you stack up in the "should
be" category? Happy Fathers Day all you dads.
Friday the 13th is this Friday on the .13th. The
spells must already be working on me with that
kind of statement. Watch out for those ladders and
especially the black cats. They will get you quicker
than anything. The best way to improve your luck
is to wear those seat belts.


known as the Brown Wood Site, The Brown Wood
Foundation donated the property for this site. The
deed contained certain restrictions, the site must be
attended at all times while open to the public. We
tried to get the restrictions changed, but the donor
would not agree. All the other sites have walk
through gates, this may be inconvenient but it's the
best we can do for now.

McAlpin farmers will


be featured on RFD-TV

"Farm Bureau Today" on RFD-TV will feature two
progressive North Florida farming operations on June
25 at 6:30 p.m.
The program visits Donnell and Robert Gwinn's
family farm in McAlpin and Jay Fraleigh's nursery
near Madison. Both farming operations won
Commissioner of Agriculture Charles Bronson's
Agricultural-Environmental Leadership Awards in
2007.
The Gwinn brothers grew up on the family farm.
On their more than 1,100 acres they have a small
cow-calf operation and grow peanuts, iron clay peas,
bahia grass seed; and hay. But they are best known
for the premium watermelons they ship from their
own packinghouse and sell throughout the eastern
United States and Canada. They were among the first
farmers in the Suwannee basin to participate in a
program to demonstrate Best Management Practices
(BMPs) that protect the environment and increase
productivity.
Jay Fraleigh is the sixth generation on his family's
farm in Madison County. While the family
traditionally planted shade tobacco, cotton and row
crops, Fraleigh has taken the operation in a new
direction. In 1999, he and his wife, Donna, opened
Fraleigh Nursery. Jay also created Gro-Eco, a system
of growing that not only cuts water use by 80 percent,
but also eliminates irrigation runoff and produces
healthier plants.
The Florida Department of Agriculture produces the
program for Florida Farm Bureau as part of an outreach
campaign to increase public awareness of agriculture,

Was there cause for concern at Branford Elementary?

what Haas deemed viola-
tions of National Fire
Protection Association
rules pertaining to a
smoke partition in the
mechanical room.
Smoke partitions are
designed "to limit the
transfer of smoke," in the
language of the fire code.
The violations, according
to the report, included
several penetrations in the
smoke partition that were
not sealed in accordance
with NFPA code
101:8.4.4.1. The state of
Florida has adopted
NFPA 1, Uniform Fire
Code and NFPA 101, Life
Safety Code, as its master
codes for fire safety in-
spections.

eral penetrations for con-

would respond to an
alarm at a structure that
is required to perform
the final inspection and
issue a certificate of oc-
cupancy.
Educational facilities
are treated differently,
however. Chapter 1013
section 371 of Florida
Statutes states that
"each board may em-
ploy a chief building
official or inspector and
such other inspectors
who are certified pur-
suant to chapter 468,
and such personnel as
are necessary to admin-
ister and enforce the
provisions of this
,code, .

tright, director of the
state Office of Educa-
tional Facilities ex-
plained in a telephone
interview. "They have

form fire safety inspec-
tions."
Boatright was super-
intendent of schools in
Suwannee County in
the late 60s.


duit runs," reads Haas's
report. "These penetra-
tions were not fire-
caulked."
In addition, he noted the
lack of sealarit between
wall and ceiling.
"The continuity of the
smokb partition wall was
also degraded by the lack
of a smoke-tight joint be-
tween the wall and the un-
derside of the
ceiling/roof/roof mem-
ber," he reported.
In photos Haas took of
the interior of the mechan-,
ical room, several open-
ings for conduit do not ap-
pear to have been sealed.
The opening for a water
line supplying the sprin-
kler system does appear to
have been caulked, how-
ever.
The openings in the
smoke partition were not
at issue in the May 29
fire.
Haas said he noticed the
infractions upon arrival to
fight the fire.
"I went down there and
sa%% problems in the-
room," Haas said. "I
would d become personally
liable if I don't bring
these things up."
Racow, Haas's boss, en-
dored Haas's findings
and said the structure did
not meet the state fire
code. Racow described the
infractions as "serious"
and the structure as "un-
safe."
"I would not have al-
lowed kids to attend until
the infractions were taken
care of," he said. "We be-
lie% e (these) code viola-
tions are important."
Croft performed the fi-
nal inspection on the addi-
ilon
"It is a smoke partition,
there is going to be imper-
fections in ever thing."
Croft told.ihe Denmocrat',
"Do we miss things, sure,
%\ e miss things from time
to time, but nothing to
shut the school down by."
Croft said he had "no
response" to Racow's call-
ing the school unsafe.
"Scott has nothing to
lose, he is on his way
out." Croft said. Racow
tendered his resignation to
the county commission

til a replacement has been
named.
Mark Carver, director of
maintenance for Suwan-
nee County Schools, also
rejects Racow's and
Haas's characterization of
the infractions.
"I don't qualify those as
a serious life safety haz-
ard," he said.
Carver said the penetra-
tions did not need to be
sealed since the room is
equipped with sprinklers.
"The school is fully sprin-
kled," said Carver. "It is
not unsafe."
"We are more stringent
than the codes," Carver
said." The room required
a smoke wall, we put in a
one hour (fire wall, in-
stead)."
"I do not interpret the
code in any manner than
allowed me by the code,"
Haas said in response.,
In any case, said Carver,
Haas's findings carry no
weight because the build-
ing had already passed fi-
nal inspection by Croft.
Under state law it is
generally the Agency
Having Jurisdiction the
fire department that would
respond to an alarm at the
structure that is required
to perform the final in-
spection and issue a cer-
tificate of occupancy.
Schools are different,
however. Under Florida
law, a school district may
employ any state certified
fire inspector for that pur-
pose.
Haas had failed the
school on a Nov. 19, 2007
preliminary inspection,
though he later described
that decision as the result
of a "misunderstanding on
the identification of the
labeled corridor walls sur-
rounding the egress ways
within .the. addition" and
ie)cinded hi> ruling.
Carver then asked Croft
to perform the final in-
spection, which he did at
no charge to the school
district.
Both Haas and Croft are
state certified fire inspec-
tors.

Did personality

conflicts

play a role?

Croft said he believes
the controversy is much
ado about nothing.
"We got a rogue fire in-
spector trying to start
something," Croft said of
Haas. "I got him hired at
city of Live Oak Fire De-
partment. He did some
stupid things and got
himself fired and blames
me for it." Haas was fired
from Live Oak Fire De-
partment for insubordina-
tion a number of years
ago. He worked as a fire-
fighter under Croft, then
a lieutenant in the depart-
ment.
School board chairper-
son Julie Ulmer believes


personal conflict is at the
bottom of the controver-
sy. In a June 2 letter to
County Commission
Chairman Douglas Udell,
Ulmer said Haas "was
creating a problem for'
our district by being diffi-
cult to work with."
Udell seems to agree
that personal conflict is
fueling the controversy.
"It was my hope that
the county commission
and the school board and
our fire department and
the city fire department
all could work together to
get the job done, without
pointing fingers at one
another," Udell told the
Democrat. "I don't like
that. We're'all working
for the same people."
Carver also called Haas
difficult to work with.
Carver described Haas's
demeanor at one meeting


at the school as "very ag-
itated and unprofession-
al."
"There's no personality
in the code book," said
Haas in response to
claims that he is difficult
to work with. "All I'm
doing is following the
law. I'm a professional
and I'm doing what I was
taught."
Said Ulmer, "We take
the safety of our students
very seriously and are
working to correct any
findings."
Carver told the Democ-
rat that the openings in
the smoke partition have
been sealed.
Suwannee County
Fire/Rescue has requested
a.ruling from the state
fire marshal on whether
the Branford Elementary
was in violation of the
state fire code.

School district opts to maintain retiree benefits


Continued From Page 1A

dation on retiree health
insurance as part of a ne-
gotiations impasse that
resulted earlier this year
between the bargaining
teams of the Suwannee
County School District
and the United Teachers
of Suwannee County.
Boatright, who is re-
quired by state statute to
make a recommendation
on the matter, partially
rejected the magistrate's
ruling on retiree health
insurance. His decision
was issued this week.
The teachers union ac-
cepted the magistrate's
recommendation in its en-
tirety.
Currently, retirees re-
ceive insurance benefits
at the same cost as em-
ployees a benefit that
provides $306.74 per
month. Retirees also re-
ceive $150 per month
from the Florida Retire-
ment System health insur-
ance subsidy. The school
board shares the cost of
health coverage for in-
structional and non-in-
structional employees
who retire with 30 or
more years of service and
are 52 years of age or
older at retirement.
Boatright, in a compro-
mise, proposed capping
the board's contribution
of $306.74 per month for
new participants in the
program beginning June
30, 2009. In the event
health insurance costs in-

City.
Lake City Police De-
partment Officer Larry
Butler heard an alarm at
Baya Pharmacy West lo-
cated on US 90 west while
on patrol, the report states.
Once at the business,
Butler noticed the drive-
through window had been
broken.
LCPD officers Joe Lu-
cas and Jason Golub then
went to Baya Pharmacy
East on southeast Baya to
check it out.
The officers saw a vehi-
cle behind the building,
but the vehicle fled as offi-
cers approached.


crease, while the board
may pay the added cost
for employees and re-
tirees currently receiving
the benefit, new partici-
pants will receive only
the capped amount. Be-
ginning June 30, 2009,
new and current partici-
pants who wish to contin-
ue to benefit must return
to the district their Flori-
da Retirement System
health insurance subsidy
of $150 per month to off-
set the board's cost to the
program. Employees must
have 30 years of service
with 20 years in Suwan-
nee County Schools to
participate in the program
beginning June 30, 2009.
The district previously
proposed phasing out the
benefit altogether as of
June 30, 2008, arguing
that significant costs of
the program placed a
growing financial burden
on the district in light of
state budget cuts. The
district also argued that
few comparably-sized
districts provided such
benefits.
William McGinnis Jr.,
who was appointed by the
Public Employees Rela-
tions Commission to
serve as special magis-
trate, sided with the
teachers'union a few
weeks ago, holding that
the school district should
continue to pay a substan-
tial portion of health in-
surance benefits.
The union had pro-
posed requiring new par-


Sometime later, the ve-
hicle was spotted near
Baya Point Drive, at which
f point two occupants fled.
A pair of gloves and a
black sweatshirt were
found in the car. Surveil-
lance footage showed a
suspect break the drive-
through glass wearing a
pair of orange and black
gloves, it is not clear if the
gloves found in the car
match those on the surveil-
lance tape.
LCPD K-9 deputy
Randy Harrison was called
in to track the suspects:
Stanavich was found
hiding in a wooded area
south of Baya Point. The
other suspect was identi-
fied but not found.
Stanavich was arrested
June 4 and transported to
the Columbia County Jail.
- He later posted a $16,000
bond.


ticipants in the program
to work at least 20 years
in the Suwannee County
School District beginning
June 30, 2009. The union
also proposed requiring
new participants begin-
ning June 30, 2009 to re-
turn to the district their
insurance subsidy -
$150 per month to off-
set district costs to the
program. Those currently
receiving the benefit or
those currently eligible
'for the benefit would con-
tinue receiving the same
amount.
The union argued that
removing the program


would deny a benefit that
employees have relied
upon and that it serves to
retain current staff and re-
cruit future employees.
"It's a fair compro-
mise," said the district's
attorney, Leonard Diet-
zen, of Boatright's pro-
posal. "These are hard fi-
nancial times. Schools are
finding ways to save jobs
and reduce costs in gas
and everything else."
George Bowen, the
union's chief negotiator,
disagreed.
"We don't see it as a
fair compromise," Bowen
said. "We proved our case


(before the magistrate).
The magistrate was an ex-
perienced third party that
was neutral who weighed
the issue and felt the dis-
trict didn't provide evi-
dence to support the.
change they wanted to
make.".
The school board will
conduct a public hearing
June 19 at 10 a.m. at the
school board meeting
room, at which school
district and union bar-
gaining teams will present
arguments to the board on
retiree health insurance.
The school board, acting
,as a legislative body, will


determine the matter.
School employees will
be scheduled to receive
the amount of their raises
- retroactive to July 1,
2007 after the'board's
decision is ratified by the
teachers and school
board.
Both the district and the
union accepted the magis-
trate's recommendation to
retain current contract
language on teacher plan-
ning time and to change
contract language to re-
quire teachers to work be-
yond the normal school
day for up to two after-
school events per year.

members of Live Oak
Christian Church since
1985. They have two
daughters. Jackie is mar-
ried to Jeff Roberts and
they have three daughters.
Misti is married to Stacy
Futch, and they have two
daughters and one son, all
living here in Suwannee
County.
Caruthers is a certified
county commissioner, hav-
ing completed a course
that was sponsored by the
Florida Association of
Counties.
Caruthers has completed
courses sponsored by the
Florida Department of
Transportation in construc-
tion math, plans reading,
asphalt testing, asphalt
paving inspection and as-
phalt plant inspection. He
also completed courses
from the Florida Trans-

attended Mid-Florida Tech

was an I.M.S.A. certified
work zone specialist.
"I would like to take this
opportunity to thank the
voters of District 1 for the
privilege to serve as your
representative on the
Board of County Commis-
sioners for the past eight
years," Caruthers said. "I
am seeking a third term as
your county commissioner
for District 1. In my past
campaigns I pledged 'to
devote whatever time and
effort required to meet the
challenge of resolving the
many complex problems
facing Suwannee County.'

dard of ethics, honesty and
leadership."
He continued, "Eight
years ago when I first took
office, the county auditor
advised the county commis-
sion that Suwannee County
was in a financial emer-
gency, eight years later
Suwannee County is in a
good financial condition,
perhaps best ever.
"In our district many ex-
isting paved roads were in
very poor condition, many
have been re-surfaced in the
past eight years. Two will
be re-surfaced very soon,
CR 249 (Nobles Ferry
Road) from Live Oak to
Suwannee River, also 52nd
Street and 133rd from Mt.
Olive Church of Christ to
CR 132 (Stagecoach Road).
I have worked on the traffic
safety committee for several
years for the improvement
of the streets around the
Live Oak schools, this pro-
ject should be under con-
struction before the end of
this year.
'"Though the economy is
very slow, there have been
new jobs in Suwannee
County. A new prison is
under construction, being a
host county of a prison
hopefully we will be able
to get enough inmate labor
to keep our roadways
clean.
Progress Energy has pro-
posed building a new gener-


ating plant that will cost
100s bf millions of dollars
to construct.
"Your millage rate for
property tax has been low-
ered for the past three
years, with good growth it
should continue to de-
crease.
Pilgrims Pride (formerly
Gold Kist) enlarged their
processing plan and created
many new jobs.
"Ambulance and fire ser-
vices have been combined
into one service to better
serve those in times of
need.
"I supported the will of


the voters for the county
wide elections which was
approvedd by a 66 percent
margin.
"My performance is con-
sistent, I speak for the vot-
er/taxpayer and I am not
swayed by special interests.
Protecting the taxpayer dol-
lars is my main concern,
benefiting Suwannee Coun-
ty as a whole, is uppermost
in my mind.
There has been progress,
and it will continue, but
there is still much to be
done, and you can count on
me to voice your con-
cerns."

While many people believe that Father's Day is a holiday invented by the fine folks at Hallmark, it's not
so. The celebration of Dad's special day can most likely be credited to Mrs. John B. Dodd, of Washington.
State, who first suggested the idea of the holiday in 1909.
Mrs. Dodd's father, civil war veteran William Smart, was widowed when his wife died in childbirth with
their sixth child. Despite the obvious hardships, Mr. Smart proceeded to raise the newborn along with his
five other children, by himself.


It wasn't until Sonora Dodd became an adult that she realized the
strength and selflessness her father had shown in raising his children
as a single parent. The original date chosen for the holiday was June
5, Mr. Smart's birthday, however the celebration was postponed until
June 19, the third Sunday in June, because there was not enough time
to prepare.
At about the same timqe in various towns and cities across America

of Father's Day, although most histories give credit to Mrs. Dodd.
In early times, wearing flowers was a traditional way of celebrating Father's Day.Mrs. Dodd favored the red rose to
honor a father still living, while a white flower honored a deceased dad. J.H. Berringer, who also held Father's Day
celebrations in Washington State as early as 1912, chose a white lilac as the Father's Day Flower.
In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge. supported the idea of a national Father's Day, but it never became official until
1966 when President Lyndon Johnson signed the presidential proclamation that set aside the 3rd Sunday of June as
Father's Day.

What Makes

ADad

God took the strength of
a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the
eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning
in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity, ,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined


these qualities,
When there was nothing
more to add,
He knew His masterpiece
was complete,
And so, He called it...Dad.

If you noticed the young
men on sleek European style

why they were here. Since
1997, almost 300 undergraduates
and alumni of the national college

participated in Gear Up Florida.
Gear Up Florida was. created with
one mission in mind to reach out
to as many people as possible

Capitol in Tallahassee. This year,
the 34 riders set a single team
record by raising more than
$92,000 to benefit people with
disabilities.
After completing the longest

Ten years ago, Daytona International
Speedway saw the light.
"The World Center of Racing"
employed Musco Lighting of
Muscatine, Iowa to transform the 2.5-
mile motorsports Mecca into the largest
lighted sports complex in the America.
With 1,932 light fixtures, 202 outer
perimeter poles ranging from 70 to 110
feet, 150 miles of wire and 800 tons of
concrete, Daytona International
Speedway moved the Coke Zero 400
Powered By Coca-Cola Sprint Cup


Series event from its traditionally late-
morning start to a nighttime event.
Moving the 160-lap, 400-mile
Independence Day holiday weekend
event to under the lights elevated the
event to a new level of excitement.
Here's a look at some of the unique
numbers about the Daytona
International Speedway lighting
system, which hosted its first nighttime-
running of the Coke Zero 400 Powered

It has become one of the landmark
dates in the history of NASCAR July
4, 1984.
Richard Petty, driving the No. 43
STP Pontiac, captured his 200th and
final NASCAR victory at historic
Daytona International Speedway, all
with the late President Ronald Reagan
in attendance. Petty nipped Cale
Yarborough at the start/finish line on
Lap 157 of the 160-lap, 400-mile event
to take the yellow flag and secure the
milestone victory.


Petty's 200th NASCAR win wasn't
the only historical moment that
occurred. The Independence Day event
marked the first time a sitting President
attended a NASCAR race. Reagan gave
the command "Gentlemen, start your
engines" from Air Force One while en
route to the "World Center of Racing."
"It was a real special day," Petty said.
"You wind up in front of the President
of the United States on July 4 and win

other, him and his baseball team at
PS 47. I1 remember having a game of
catch with him as a youth, and he


was throwing sidearm, and a pitch
he called a "down shoot." That is
what a curveball used be.
My father's athletic prowess
wasn't in baseball, however. When
boxing was the king of athletics he
was a pugilist. He fought as a
welterweight with a 28-2 amateur
record, a 2-1 professional career and
a 2-0 military career. He was a
Golden Gloves finalist in New York
City in 1933 at the tender age of 116.
He fought under the name Kid
Daniels and fought under an alias
when boxing pro, so as not to lose
his amateur status. One of his losses
and only KQ came on his second
fight of the night.
Across town on a subway to fight
after a fight, you don't hear too
much of that today. The pro matches
paid $12 to the
winner and $8

He pawned his
Golden Glove
watches to feed
his brothers
and sister. He
was part of a


* single parent family before it was
commonplace. The single parent
being his dad.
The fact that he could box earned
him sergeant stripes during WW II.
He defeated the navy's pacific
welterweight champ in an
exhibition. He was afraid of
nothing. Boxing wasn't why he was
fearless but it helped. It's the
holiday before father's day that
made him fearless. June 6th the
anniversary of D-day. Dad was on a
team called the Screaming Eagles
also known as the
101st airborne. Of the 6600
casualties 2500 were Airborne.
"Some get Utah some get Omaha'"
he got Omaha the bloodiest beach of
D-day. Only 6 men in my father's
immediate outfit of 120 lived. He
didn't tell me, I found it in a book.
He told me about being a glider
trooper, being a parachutist, he even
taught me how to shoot a gun and
throw a punch. He didn't tell me
about the Germans he killed, the
Silver Star, the Purple Heart or the
fallen he had buried. Heroes don't
tell those stories, history does.
All heroes don't have to have the
word sports in front of them, my

the race in the (final laps).
All of it could've been
scripted. Nobody would've
believed it. It did happen. I
was glad it did."
While the spectators at
historic Daytona
International Speedway.
wanted to see Richard
Petty capture hip 200th
NASCAR victory,
Yarborough, one of his
greatest rivals, was trying
to stop him.
"I think everybody was
talking about his 200th win
(before the race) but
everybody was also
thinking about not letting
him get it too,"
Yarborough said. "I didn't
have a problem with it. I
didn't want him to have it
either. I wanted it."
In the closing laps of the
race, Yarborough was
running second to Petty
and had a plan to win the
race. But when Doug
Heveron lost control of his
car in Turn 1 on Lap 157
of the 160-lap event, that
plan was scrapped.
Yarborough realized the
race would probably end
under caution and that his
trademark slingshot move
couldn't wait until the last
lap of the race.


"I had Richard set up to
where I wanted him to
make that slingshot on him
on the last lap,"
Yarborough said. "When
the caution, came out, I
knew the race was over.
We were going to finish
under the caution. I was
too far behind him to make
the run I wanted to make
on him. I got by him
anyway. But I didn't have
enough momentum to keep
him behind me all the way
to the start/finish line. I
could tell he was a foot
ahead."
Bobby Allison, a three-
time Daytona 500 winner
and 1983 NASCAR
champion, was another of
the drivers trying to stop
Petty from winning his
200th NASCAR victory on
that day. He says while he
came up short, he really
enjoyed meeting President
Reagan.
"I was running really
good that day," Allison
said. "I Was really hoping
to keep Richard Petty from
doing that. But the
President was very warm
to me after the race was
over. Ronald Reagan was
one of my real heroes. For
him to come and be a part
of that was really special."

Looking out for the little ones


SHS students teLach
youngsters media I'.eac',l
and the dangers of

secondhand smoke

Seven students from
Suwannee High recently
took time to teach
younger students ate
Melody Christian a
Academy in first, second
and seventh grades. The
SHS students taught the
elementary students thez7
dangers of secondhand
smoke and middle
school students about
media literacy. Students
encouraged the L
youngsters to,
respectfully ask family
members and others to
respect their right to
breathe fresh air.
"The kids really S
seemed to have a good 41
time, especially when we
role-played different"
scenarios in which they'
might actually find them
selves. They really got a
kick out of that" said
SHS senior Zahir
Roberts, one of the SHS
presenters.
Said Youth Advocacy
Partnership Director
Steven Schneitman, who
accompanied the
students during the
presentations, "I'm
really excited about
working with this group ..
of young people. They OL.V
are all very bright,
committed to making a
difference locally, and-
are all really natural in V
front of an audience."
Schneitman developed
the presentations and
trained the youth as part
of the Youth Advocacy
Partnership's Youth
Leadership Initiative.
"We believe that
young people have so
much potential in
effecting positive change
that we are devoted to
providing opportunities -
for teens to develop the
skills necessary to
address local problems
in a meaningful and fun
way" said Schneitman. 6a
When asked why he
was interested in
presenting, SHS junior
Shelby Brothers said,
"I've really enjoyed the
opportunity to put public
speaking into practice.
I'm not just giving a
speech about an issue,
I'm teaching younger
kids how to deal with the
issue."

A tribute to good fathers


Too often, good fathers are the unsung heroes of
their families. They work long and hard to provide for
their families, and they strive to set a good example
for their children concerning responsibility, morality,
and what it truly means to be a good person. They
are the wise counselors and brave protectors of their.
families, and they do this humbly and without
begrudging the very significant sacrifices which -
they often must make. A good father rules
and guides his family at the same time as he
serves it. A good father will instruct and
admonish his children with patience and
gentle firmness, making sure that they
know right from wrong, all the while
making sure that he always sets a good mora
example himself. When a good father makes a
decision about his family, he will do so unselfishly, :14
thinking only of what is best for his family.
Oftentimes, when a man becomes a father 1.
he may be forced to give up his personal aspirations ',
and dreams of his youth in. order to be a good
father. But, a good father will do this without
complaining of the sacrifice. And although not
every man can live up to the ideals of the good
father, those who do inspire us with their quiet
heroism and self-sacrifice. We should tell our
fathers how much they mean to us and let them
know how much their sacrifice is appreciated,
and how much we value their counsel.


;i


Hear, 0 sons, a father's instruction, and be attentive, that you may gain
insight; for I give you good precepts: do not forsake my teaching.
R.S.V. Proverbs 4:1-2

You don't know

what Hell is!'


By David H. Matie
Doctor of Pastoral
Counseling

While pastoring a mission
in central Florida years ago I
was also employed by the
city as a meter reader and
when not reading meters I
worked on other water'
department repairs. One day
while assisting some other
employees repairing a fire
hydrant I was down in the
hole we had dug and the man
up .above.said, "Be careful
'because if that breaks loose,
you'll get as Wet as 'Hell."' I
looked up at him and said,
"You don't know what fell
is."
One thing we know is that
Hell is not wet. Jesus told an
account about a beggar
named Lazarus (Luke 16:19-
'31). First, notice this is not
as some would have you
believe a parable. We know
this because of the context.
* Jesus talks about divorce'
immediately preceding this
passage and in chapter 17, He
goes on to talk about
forgiveness, neither of.which
topics are parables. And .
'notice how throughout the
Gospels parables are given in
groups. Also He mentions
Lazarus by name. In parables
Jesus never gives specific
names!
The beggar in Hell was
'begging for Lazarus to be
allowed to come to him with
a wet finger to cool his
tongue (verse 24). And it
didn't happen! Hell is not
wet! And now to this rich
man, who, like so many
today, had probably shunned
anyone who had tried to talk
to him of such a place,


chiding them with cruel
remarks, Hell was all together
too real!
It was so authentic and
horrible realizing he was
there and there was no way
out for him his heart turned to
his loved ones. "Oh no," he
probably thought, "I don't
want this horrible reality to
be inflicted upon them." And
as you can read for yourself
in Luke 16:27, he turned and
continued his conversation
with the patriarch Abraham
only to be told, "If they won't
listen to the Bible they
wouldn't listen to someone if
they came back from the
dead" (Luke 16:31).
Are you listening,to God's
Word? The last time you
were in church and you heard
the message of the Gospel,
"You must be born again,"
did you trust Christ as your
personal Savior and begin a
life of service to Him or did
you walk out while the
message was still hot in you
breast, the Holy Ghost still
convicting you of your need -
and turn a deaf ear to the
message? Maybe that was
your last opportunity.


Heart Matters

produces positive results...we all
continue behavior that gets us
what we want. Therefore,, we
never develop the ability to
control .our desires and feelings
no matter what our age. To be
immature is to be incomplete or
underdeveloped, and
unfortunately two-year-olds
aren't the only ones suffering
from this condition.
The Bible addresses maturity
in what is commonly referred to
as the "love chapter", of all
places! I Corinthians 13:11 has
this to say:

"When I was a child, I talked
like a child, I thought like a
child, I reasoned like a child.
When I became a man, I put
childish ways behind me.".

While hopefully you haven't
witnessed any "down-on-the-
floor fits" by any adults lately,
immaturity affects many over the
age of 18, especially in the arena
of relationships. Temper tantrums
may look a bit different at an
older age, but call them what
they are...throwing a fit to get
your way. Yelling, screaming,
slamming doors, throwing
things...using intimidation, or
giving the cold shoulder, refusing
to talk, withholding
affection...using manipulation.
Either way, the real issue is
immaturity: talking, thinking and
reasoning like a child...not


putting childish ways behind us.
According to Christian authors
Henry Cloud and John
Townsend, "The good thing
about immaturity is that it is not
an incurable disease. The right
treatment will get rid of it." What
do they recommend?
Confronting our own immaturity
and recognizing the impact it is
having on our relationships.
Imagine that same two-year old
we first mentioned, standing up,
brushing himself off and saying,
"You know Mom, you're right. I
don't need that toy today. I'll
just look forward to getting it for
my birthday." That level of
maturity in a child would make
our jaws drop...facing our
immaturity may have the same
affect on our loved ones! Not
easy, but right...and the first step
toward maturity. Having great
relationships are worth the effort,
because their hearts...and yours
really do matter!
. Blessings,
Angie

"Why are powerful men drawn to prostitution?"

put a stop to all the degradation
of women in our country. Then
she made a rather important
point, if I may say so myself.
"Don't these dim-witted
people know that powerful men
turn to prostitutes for the same
reason any man turns to a
prostitute? Why in the world do
they justify sleaziness and
imrliiality simply because
someone holds a certain office?"
Continuing her tirade she
observed, "The only difference I
can see is how much they can
pay."
She continued muttering and I
turned back to the news program
I was watching. But I could not
get away from the logic of her
observation.
There is one reason and one
reason alone that a man, any man
or woman for that matter, turns to
prostitution. And unless you have
been educated beyond your
intelligence, you know what that
one solitary reason is. Lust, that
is all. Plain and simple, anybody
and everybody engages in
prostitution because of lust.
Celebrities do it. Politicians do
it. Religious leaders do it. Even
alley cats do it.
And every one has their own
unique reason why they do it.
Once you get through all of the
blubbering nonsense it all boils
down to simple LU S T. What I
want to know is why these so
called "powerful men," have no
more control over the lust-factor
in their life than anybody else?
What is power for if you cannot
control yourself? If they misuse
power in this part of their life, it'
is a good indication that in other
parts of the life power is being
misused as well.
My dear sainted grandmother,
God rest her soul, had the
solution for this kind of activity. I
cannot repeat it here but her large
razor-sharp kitchen butcher knife
played an important role in her
solution.
The thing that amazes me is
that these so-called "powerful
men'" boast about and build their
reputation on what every alley

cat does every night of the week
in some dark alley. Putting
yourself on the same level as an
alley cat is not my idea of
intelligence.
And while I was thinking
along these another thought
popped up. What talent is really
associated with taking off your
clothes? After all, I do it every
night before m.y shower. When I
was young my mother had to
help me undress in order to take
a bath, but now I have learned
how to take my clothes off and
get into the shower myself. What
talent is associated with this?
I do not know what is worse.
Posing nude? Someone who
photographs nudes? Or some
magazine that publishes nude
pictures?
Recently one of those porn
magazines approached someone
prominent in the news to pose
nude. They assured her that the
pictures would be "tastefully
done." What in the world does
that mean? A dollop of whipped
cream on each shoulder?
As a young person, my cousin
and I worked on my
grandfather's farm. Our job was
to clean out the cow stalls every
day. No matter how tastefully we
piled this material in the
barnyard it was still cow manure
and it still stank. I can only guess
that one man's manure is another
man's bed of roses.
This has always been a
problem in society. Even the
godly Job in the Old Testament
understood this and wrote, "I
made a covenant with mine eyes;
why then should I think upon a
maid?" (Job 31:1 KJV).
If we had more "real men" in
our country, we would have a
whole lot less prostitution.

"Down-on-the-floor fits"


FRIDAY, JUNE 13, 2008


NI SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK


PAGE 8BRR


Picture a two-year-old on the
floor kicking and
screaming...wanting their own
way and having a temper tantrum
to get it. If you haven't heard
one lately, walk near the toy aisle
at Wal-Mart, and chances are
good you will. To be sure, a two-
year-old doesn't leave home
planning to throw a fit...it results
when the desire for something
arises and there is no
understanding of how to deal
with those desires if they aren't
satisfied. While these scenarios
are far from pleasant, they are
necessary life lessons in
maturing. The real problem
comes when the temper tantrum


By the Rev. James L Snyder
As an observer of the human
scene for...say quite a few
years...I have come to one
amazing conclusion. Some
people are born stupid, while
others have to spend years at a
college or university to reach the
same level of imbecility. And if
they do not quite arrive at an
appropriate level of inanity, there
is always postgraduate work.
With the price of education
these days, foolishness is quite
expensive but for some people
money is no obstacle in their
pursuit of folly.
Personally, I'm not so sure that
a highly educated fool is any
different from just one who was
born a fool. There is a case to be
made that a person always gets
what he or she pays for.
Personally, I would rather blame
my parents for my foolishness.
As usual, the Gracious
Mistress of the Parsonage called
the latest example of stupidity to
my attention. I was engrossed in
watching the news on TV while
she was perusing an online
newspaper.
"Would you look at this?" she
said interrupting my viewing of
the news. "How stupid can
anybody be?" she continued.
I did not know what she was
talking about but I knew if I
wanted to finish watching the
news on television, I would have
to stop and find out what was
bugging her so.
"What do you mean?" I
inquired. Sometimes inquiring
minds want to know and at other
times, they just want to get
beyond a certain disturbance.
"Look at this headline." And
she said it with such disdain I
knew it must be something rather
important for her. Then she read
the headline for me. "'Why are
powerful men drawn to
prostitution?' Did you ever read
anything so silly in all of your
life?"
She had me there. Then she
went into a tirade about this.
whole nonsense of glorifying
prostitution and why they don't










RELIGION



Hispanic congregation to be welcomed into Episcopal Church


Spanish-speaking group,
formerly members of the
Charismatic Episcopal
Church, will now join
fully in ministry with St.
John's Cathedral of
Jacksonville,
which had lent it
worship space


A jubilant
welcome by
North Florida
Episcopalians awaits the
150 members of an
Hispanic congregation and
their priest, the Rev. Dr.
Miguel Rosada, all of
whom will be formally
received as members of the
Episcopal Church during a
service at 7 p.m. on June
18 at St. John's Cathedral,
Jacksonville.
"We joyfully receive this
flock into the Episcopal
Church," said the Right
Rev. Samuel Johnson
Howard, bishop of the
Diocese of Florida. "We
look forward to being
colleagues and companions
in ministry with the people
of San Lucas and with Fr.
Rosada. This event marks
not only the addition of a
substantial congregation to
the Episcopal Diocese of
Florida, but also a
remarkable beginning for
us in terms of Hispanic
ministry."
At the June 18 service in
St. John's Cathedral the .
newcomers will merge
their Spanish-speaking
congregation with the
existing English-speaking
congregation of St. Luke's.
4 They will be greeted by
members and clergy of the
more than 70 Episcopal
Church congregations in
the 25 counties of the
S diocese,,which include
Jacksonville, Tallahassee
and Gainesville.
Two years ago St. Luke's
Episcopal Church, at 2961
.University Blvd. North,
began renting worship '
space to the Hispanic
congregation, which was
then Minsterio Hispano El
Mesias, in the Charismatic


Episcopal Church. The two
groups, worshiping at
different hours on the St.
Luke's campus near the
gates of Jacksonville
University, grew to share
an increasing amount of
fellowship and outreach
ministry. Over time,
through conversation with
Bishop Howard and others
in the Episcopal Diocese,
the leadership and people
of El Mesias realized a call
to join the Episcopal
Church. The newly
combined congregations
are enthusiastic about the
new opportunities for.
enhanced ministries which
are emerging from their
new status as "St.
Luke's/San Lucas" St.
Luke's Episcopal
Church/Iglesia Episcopal
San Lucas with Fr.
Rosada as rector.
Commenting on the
merger of his Spanish-
speaking co-ngregation with
the English-speaking
congregation, Fr. Rosada
said, "We are all
foreigners. All of us came
from somewhere else. We
are all on a journey -
travelers in this world
headed to a new place. God
is King of all nations.
The Charismatic
Episcopal Church is a
denomination founded by
former members of The
Episcopal Church over 25
years ago. Both
denominations ordain their
bishops in "apostolic
succession," an unbroken
chain of spiritual
leadership that originated
in the twelve apostles of
Jesus and is a tenet of some
other churches, including
the Roman Catholic and
Orthodox communions,
