Schools face loss of $2 million


Budget cuts are called for, but it's not yet
known where reductions will be made


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
The Suwannee County School
Board is preparing its budget for the


2008-09 school year, and it isn't an
easy task. The district will be down
at least $2 million from the 2007-08
school year, according to Finance
Director Vickie Music.


"The district is looking at every
single area that expenditures occur
in," Music said concerning impend-
ing budget cuts. "There is nothing
that is not going to be looked at."
The state is facing decreased rev-
enues overall.

With all being said and done,
this was one of the best

better in past years. But 2009
will be better than any past

The 2008 Blueberry Festival is over! Wow one
would think Wendell's going to complain about how
much work the festival was and that he's certainly not
looking forward to 2009. NO NOTATALL! But yes,
it was a lot of hard, but rewarding work. Was it hot?
Yes, but there was no rain as we had in 2007.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: What is a periodontist?
A. A periodontist is a dentist who
specializes in the prevention, diagnosis
and treatment of gum disease.
Periodontistry is one of the many areas
of dental specialty that require training
beyond the education that earns a dental
degree, either a DDS-Doctor of Deital
Surgery-or DMD-Doctor of Dental
Medicine. (The difference between the
degrees is purely semantic. Each has the
same education requirements as set by
the American Dental Association's
Commission on Dental Accreditation).
The word has Greek roots, "peri"
meaning "around," and "odont," the word
for tooth.
A periodontist is a critical figure in
determining whether a person is a
candidate for dental implants. Since
some 75 percent of 'Americans have
some form of gum disease, periodontists
play a significant role in addressing the
oral health needs of the country. Your
dentist, of course, is also trained to
recognize the signs of gum disease. On
your next visit, talk with your dentist
about whether you should see a.
periodontist and ask your dentist about
some of the other fields of dental
specialty.

Jax teacher wins



North Florida



Colgate Showdown



Will compete for state


title in Novemb


Submitted
Performing before a packed house,
Jacksonville fourth grade teacher Amy
Maree won the North Florida Colgate
Country Showdown June 20 at the Spirit
of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP).
Maree won over 19 other contestants who,
along with her, had won in four earlier
contests at the SOSMP in the search for
America's best new country act.
Maree will represent North Florida Nov.
1 at the SOSMP at the state finals. From
among six statewide finalists who will
eagerly travel to North Florida for their
big chance at stardom, judges will select
only one winner who will go to regionals.
The state winner will receive $1,000.
One winner from each of five regionals
across America will receive an all
expenses paid trip to the final contest in
January of 2009. The final winner will be
named the top new country act in
America, and of course, win $100,000 in
cash!
The North Florida Colgate Country
Showdowns were sponsored by WQHL
98.1 in Live Oak, emceed by 98.1
morning show host Kevin Thomas and
coordinated by WQHL's Gail Taylor.
Kevin Thomas will also emcee the state
finals.
Maree competed in the Colgate Country
Showdown in Jacksonville previously and


won. She took third at state, which just
whetted her appetite for winning it all,
something she accomplished this. year.
"I'm so excited!" she exclaimed. "I just
want to make every body proud. I'm very,
very proud to be representing Live Oak,
the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park
and WQHL 98.1," she stressed.
Maree said she can usually tell who the
winner will be in such competitions, but
the Colgate finals June 20 were different.
"I've been in many competitions and
usually can pick a winner, but this time
everybody was so unique." When her
name was called out, as the winner, Maree
appeared to be in disbelief as she moved
to the front of the stage.
Maree, 31, is a seasoned veteran of
performing. She's opened for big country
stars such as Tracy Byrd and Tracy
Lawrence; sung the national anthem at a
Jacksonville Jaguars' football game, a
Jacksonville Suns' Baseball game, and at
many other venues.
She's been singing since age 7, but
when her daughter, now 10, was born, she
took off a couple of years and
concentrated on being a mom. At 23, she
started singing again. "Martina McBride
is my favorite all time singer," she said.
Although she loves all types of music,
including that sung by Whitney Houston,
Mariah Carey and Celine Dion, "all the


Maree


divas," she says she loves country best. "I
listen to country all the time," she says.
She also sings at churches and loves
gospel music.
Being a single mom, a fourth grade
teacher at Arlington Heights Elementary
in Jacksonville and a singer keeps her
busy. "My daughter is my biggest fan, and
she sings as well," Maree said.
Maree said she's so excited about the


state finals. She'll have her own cheering
section at the Nov. 1 Colgate finals to be
held at the SOSMP.

Maree, go to her Website at

School district wins Quality System designation


Submitted
The Southern Association of Colleges :-
and Schools Council on Accreditation and
School Improvement (SACS CASI) has
awarded District Accreditation to the .
Suwannee County School District. This .,
distinction is the highest level of
accreditation that a school system can
receive from the SACS CASI
organization. A:_
The Suwannee County School District
is recognized as being a fully accredited
school district. This means that annually,
every Suwannee County school meets or
exceeds the accreditation standards that
support student achievement. Through
this traditional method of accrediting
schools, individual schools are reviewed
for accreditation eligibility, with the
district office staff playing a limited but
important role.
Because of Suwannee County's long-
standing reputation for providing a high- ,. ,"
quality education to every Suwannee
County public school students the district
began actively seeking District
Accreditation as a Quality System.

response to requests from superintendents Accreditation
and other district leaders throughout the
nation who wanted to better coordinate
accreditation with ongoing system improvement
initiatives, state and district mandates.

Accountability, was instrumental in the district's efforts
to obtain the SACS CASI District Accreditation. With
the district accreditation protocol, Risk facilitated a full
examination of Suwannee County's program initiatives to
improve student learning, as well as a review of its K-12
schools and high-quality academic programs, which
further validates that all District components are actively
working together to ensure that every student receives a

Relief From Poison Ivy, Oak and Sumac
Poison ivy, oak, and sumac are toxic plants that may lead to contact
dermatitis in susceptible individuals. Urushiol is the chemical
substance contained in these plants that is responsible for causing the
skin irritation. It causes a typical red, itchy rash. Swelling and blisters
may be present. Once exposed to urushiol, a reaction will typically
develop within 12 to 48 hours. Poison ivy and poison oak typically
grow 3 leaflets to a stem. Sumac typically has 2 rows of leaflets on
each stem. A skin reaction may occur as a result of touching the toxic
plant, coming into contact with an object that has come into contact
with the plant (such as a jacket), or inhaling the smoke from burned
toxic plants. Although the rash is not contagious, urushiol may be
transmitted from person to person, thereby inducing a reaction.
Although the rash caused by poison ivy, oak, or sumac will typically
resolve without treatment within 1 to 3 weeks, treatments are
available for the alleviation of associated signs and symptoms.
Medications available over-the-counter include hydrocortisone cream,
calamine lotion, and diphenhydramine (Benadryl). Cold, wet
compresses also may be used for 15 to 30 minutes several times daily.
An oral steroid, such as prednisone, may be prescribed for more
severe reactions. 452885-F

Credit where

credit's due

We're pleased by re-
cent and ongoing ef-
forts to preserve ele-
ments of our city's ar-
chitectural heritage.
Work continues at the
old City Hall, in hopes
the Chamber of Com-
merce will someday
call it home. The city of
Live Oak gets the credit
for this one. The his-
toric train depot is also
set for a makeover,
courtesy of the county
commission.
One of our favorite
such projects, however,
is the restoration of
Tuxedo Avenue, the
180-foot roadway con-
necting Conner Street
to US 90. One of Live
Oak's last remaining
brick roads, Tuxedo
had begun to show its
age. Now the city has
commissioned a facelift
(using, .for the most
part, the existing
bricks), and soon the
old roadway will be
good as new.
Live Oak and Suwan-
nee County continue to
grow. We welcome the
changes we've seen, as
well as those we antici-
pate.
Still, we oughtn't lose
touch with our heritage.
And preserving these
reminders of where
we've been is a good
place to start.


Please address letters to:

Third Circuit Bar Association


Live Oak's Decker new vice president


Submitted
The Third Judicial
Circuit Bar Association
gathered at Camp Weed for
the group's 2008 annual
meeting and dinner June
13. There were
approximately 150
attorneys and guests in
attendance at the annual
event. The Third Judicial
Circuit Bar Association is a
group made up of attorneys
and judges who are
members of the Florida Bar
and who practice in the
Third Judicial Circuit. The
Third Judicial Circuit
encompasses Columbia,
Dixie, Hamilton, Lafayette,
Madison, Suwannee and
Taylor counties.
The Third Circuit Bar
had a memorable evening
as it celebrated a
homecoming of sorts. The
theme for the evening's
festivities was "Celebrating
the Past, Present and
Future." The group
recognized those attorneys
who have been members of
the bar for 30+, 40+ and
50+ years. The group paid
special recognition to its


o 11,0'.


'p


two longest practicing bar members, Herbert Darby and
John Norris, both of Lake City. Darby and Norris have
been members of the Florida Bar and practicing attorneys
for 59 years. Darby is a partner in the Lake City law firm
of Darby, Peele, Bowdoin and Payne. Norris is a partner
in the Lake City law firm of Norris and Norris. The bar
also passed a resolution in honor of the legacy of another
one of North Central Florida's legal icons, Ernest Page Jr.
of Madison. Mr. Page passed away in June of 2006. Mr.
Page's son, Ernest Page III (of Madison), and grandson,
Ernest Page IV (of Dowling Park), are also attorneys
practicing in the Third Circuit. Both were present at the
event, as well as Mr. Page's
widow, Margaret, to accept
the resolution.
Other highlights of the
evening included
recognizing the Third
Circuit's past Florida Bar
Board of Governor's
SRepresentatives, and the
election of the 2008-09
Third Circuit officers and
board. Todd Hingson, an
assistant state attorney in
Lake City, was elected
president of the association.
A.J. Decker, of the Decker
Law Firm in Live Oak, was
elected vice president.
Kyle McLeod, of the
Public Defender's Office in
Live Oak, was elected
treasurer, and Kendra
Hinton, of the Office of
Criminal Conflict and Civil
Regional Counsel in Lake
City, was elected secretary.

Blueberry Festival 2008: A wrap-up


Continued From Page 3A

Saturday morning's pancake breakfast was
.overwhelming! The lines were forever. I was told the
wait was about an hour, although some said two hours.
That was in the hot sun, folks, but few turned away, and
for this the Wellborn Community Association members
who did all the cooking, thank you, and I thank THEM.
The members started preparing at 6 a.m. and finished
about 11 a.m. We did have to close the lines out of

So what was the count? SEVEN HUNDRED SIXTY
breakfasts were prepared and eaten a WCA record that
we will break in 2009. We do have plans for shorter
waits by adding a possible third cooking area and a new
fourth grill.
Children's games were expandrl, ver last year's with
most participating for free and winning prizes. Crafts
were also available: participants could make a kite or a
bird feeder.

The Civil Air Patrol, headed up by Cynthia Sweitzer
and the ROTC led by Lt. Craig Haslick, assisted us in all
departments. We were especially grateful for their
participation in the parade and assisting in parking.
Thanks go out to the Masonic Lodge #13 for allowing us
to use their property for parking.
In 2009, we would like to present the 16thl Annual '
Blueberry Festival as a premier Suwannee County event.
We have the support of the Suwannee County Chamber
of Commerce, the Tourist Development Council, the
Suwannee County Commissioners and all of Suwannee
County's elected officials. Sheriff Tony Cameron's office
assisted with the parade, patrolled the festival grounds
and set up a demo in a vendor space. The Suwannee
Democrat had a vendor space and passed out souvenir
tote bags and fans, not to mention giving us a lot of
advertising.
Vendors, talent contest entrants and spectators came
from all parts of Florida, Alabama and Georgia to
participate in the Blueberry Festival. Because we're now
doing a two-day event, some stay overnight; some stay
two nights, This will help your businesses motels,
hotels, campgrounds, restaurants and gas stations. It's
called tourism!
So, what do you say, folks? Will you give Wellborn
your support and help us make the 2009 Blueberry
Festival thebest ever? See you there.

trial set

for July
Continued From Page lA

According to jail records,
Bullock was arrested in
March 2007 for grand
theft I, cheating and em-
bezzlement for allegedly
stealing more than
$100,000 from Southern
Homes Insurance, which
is owned by local busi-
nessman Wayne Frier.
Bullock was arrested in
September 2007 on five
counts of grand theft, sev-
en counts of forgery, sev-
en counts of uttering a
forgery and five counts of
fraud, according to sher-
iffs reports. Court docu-
ments allege Bullock ac-
cepted payment for insur-
ance premiums but failed
in some cases to purchase
or renew policies, instead
forging insurance certifi-
cates to make it appear
customers had coverage.
Bullock was arrested in
December 2007 for grand
theft for allegedly failing
to deliver a policy pur-
chased by a local church.
Court records indicate that
a representative of Mt.
Moriah Baptist Church in
Live Oak delivered a
$2,525 check to Bullock's
office in Juhe 2007, but
never received a policy.
Prosecutors say Bullock
did in fact secure the poli-
cy in early October of that
year.

who will prosecute Bul-
lock, said Monday it was-
n't yet clear which of the
three cases would be tried

Since then the building
has been used for business
office space, but that could
change soon. The city of
Live Oak and the Suwan-
nee County Chamber of.
Commerce want to pre-


serve the historical quali-
ties of the building. The
city has offered to lease the
building to the chamber
and the chamber has
agreed to accept, so long
as necessary funding
comes through to complete
renovations.
The city has obtained a
$250,000 grant with the
city providing $50,000 in


matching funds for reno
tions, said Court, who ha
helped obtain necessary
funding for the project.
Phase I renovations in-
clude refinishing floors,
pairing windows, updatit
the electrical system and
installing a new roof.
Court said phase I is ex-
pected to be completed t

Music said the district
cannot stop after merely
making up the $2 million
shortfall. She said Gov.
Charlie Crist recently put
all agencies on notice to
prepare for a four percent
hold-back in order to get
ready for a further possible
reduction this fall. Music
said that amount could ex-
ceed $800,000.
"We are all worried be-
cause we don't know. what's
going to happen day to
day," said school board *


member James Cooper.
"They keep coming back
with more cuts."
Cooper said the board
would prefer to rely on at-
trition to save on payroll
costs, rather than cut back
on jobs.
The school district has to
deal with the loss of more
than 20 employees from
the 2007-08 school year
due to retirement and res-
ignations.
Cooper noted some edu-
cators could be cross
trained to fill in at other
schools.


"We will not hire thosi
(positions) that we lost
from last year," school
board chairperson Julie 1
mer said. She said the
board is not looking at ci
ting nursing positions, ar
programs or other ex-
tracurricular activities, as
some districts have.
Vlmer said the board
will focus on energy con
servationas well as redu
tion of supply costs and
operational expenses to

The chamber will pro-
vide matching funds at a
later stage in the project.
Currently the chamber is
housed in a building
owned by First Federal
Bank of Florida, in ex-
change for in-kind ser-
vices.
Crain said given the
chamber's limited funds,
moving into the old city
hall is the most cost effec-
tive measure.
Plans for the building, in-
clude four offices, bath-
rooms, a break room and a
reception area for the first
floor. The second floor will
include rental office space
and a conference room.
Crain said the reception
area will provide informa-
tional brochures, including
promotional material for
Suwannee County attrac-
tions such as the Suwannee
River Jam and Christmas
on the Square. The area
will also provide seating
for patrons.

subsidy from the Florida
Retirement System. Partic-
ipants in the program must
retire with 30 or more
years of service with the
Suwannee County School
system, and be 52 or older
at the time of retirement.
The benefit would contin-
ue until the participant
reaches 65 years of age or
becomes eligible for
Medicare. It is available to
all instructional and non-
instructional employees.
The district ruled that as
of June .30, 2009, no new
participants would be al-
lowed to enter the program
due to the financial burden
of state budget cuts to edu-
cation. The Suwannee
County School District is
facing at least a.$2 million
reduction for the next
school term and could face
even more reductions.
The current retiree insur-
ance package provides the
same benefit for both re-
tirees and current employ-
ees, $306.74 per month.
The Florida Retirement
System health insurance
subsidy also gives retirees
$150 per month.
Earlier this year, a spe-'
cial magistrate was called
in to make a recommenda-
tion on the matter in the
wake of a negotiations im-
passe between the Suwan-
nee County School District
and the United Teachers of
Suwannee County. Super-
intendent Walter Boatright
rejected part of the magis-
trate's ruling on the retiree
health insurance. Boatright
was required by state
statute to make a recom-
mendation on the matter.


"The special magistrate
realizes that we're under fi-
nancial concern," said
Leonard Dietzen, the dis-
trict's attorney. "However,
I don't think he realizes
that for years it has been a
concern the sky has been
falling in the educational
world. I don't think he ap-
preciated that throughout
Florida the sky has fallen
already, so I don't think he -
took in the financial data
that shows all the sur-
rounding counties cannot
afford this type of lan-
guage and do not have this
type of language for a rea-
son, they cannot afford it."
INetzen said the district
"just couldn't afford new I
participants," after the June
30, 2009 cutoff.
A teachers union repre-
sentative said the deal was
wrong.
"The abrupt withdrawal
of this benefit is unfair to
instructional and non-in-
structional personnel who
have relied upon it and it is
patently unfair," union
president Sheryl Daniels
said. ,
"This board never set
out to take away a benefit
for no reason," school
board chairperson Julie Ul-
. mer said. "But in this eco-
nomic time we have to fo-
cus on our current employ-
ees and our current stu-
dents and that thousands of
teacher positions have
been lost across the state."
Negotiator resigns
After the hearing, Jerry
Copeland, chief negotiator
for the school district, told
Superintendent Walter
Boatright he planned to re-
sign from the post to spend
more time on a personal
business venture. Copeland
told the Democrat that his
resignation was unrelated
to the outcome of negotia-
tions.
"This has been a very
long and productive
process for both parties,"
Copeland said. "Both
teams devoted hours and
hours of their time. In the
main, the bargaining ses-
sions were collaborative
and productive." Copeland
served as chief negotiator
for the district for two
years.

I have a lot of friends who follow
professional sports very closely. Usually,
the first thing they do in the mornings is
pick up a paper or get on the Internet and
check out the previous day's scores or
reports from their favorite organization,
whether it be football, baseball, golf or
whatever. I personally follow professional
bass fishing, go figure. Bassfan.com is my
primary source for up to the minute updates
about the sport and with the technology
that's available today it's amazing to


witness the advancements in the sport of
professional bass fishing. Just this week
ESPN launched a new concept called
Basscast. Basically the tech gurus at
ESPN/BASS have figured out a way to
install fixed mount cameras in the boats of
professional bass fishermen that send a live
video stream via cell phone service and the
result is that obsessive fans lik6 me can
watch anglers as they fish the final day of

the Bassmaster Elite Series
tournaments via the World Wide
Web. I think it's pretty cool,
though it could be pretty boring
to watch for those that aren't
quite as intrigued by bass
fishing as myself.
The Suwannee River has
continued to return to the same
state it was in last summer,
which was low and clear! The
sturgeons are back at it again
and I'm sure that they will only
get worse as the summer goes
on so be very careful if you are
planning on boating on the
Suwannee anytime soon. The
Suwannee River Bassmasters
held their monthly club
tournament on Saturday, June 7
out of Clay Landing. Ruben
Thomas and partner Josh Lester
(who recently place second in
the WCH tournament in Palatka)
continued on their hot streak by
winning the derby with a limit
weighing 12.62. The father and
son duo of Joey and Tony Pate
were second with 11 pounds
even and David Delgado took


the third and final paying place
with 10.80. Jessie Durance had
big fish of the tournament with a
largemouth bass weighing 5.63.
Just recently, on Saturday,
June 14, the Lake City
Quarterback Club put on their
annual fundraiser bass
tournament, also out of Clay
Landing. There was a great
turnout with 57 teams
participating! Out of the 57
teams, there were 36 that
weighed fish and 27 limits.'
Taking top honors were Tracy
Harper and Greg Stokes with
13.50. Coming in second were
Ruben Thomas and Josh Lester
with 11.39 followed in third
place by tournament
directors/organizers Donnie
Feagle and Jamie Albritton with
8.89. Although there were a lot
of fish caught by the majority of
the field, the common sentiment
was that the big bite was absent
for most. The kicker fish was
what proved to be the difference
for the winners as their creel
was anchored by big bass of the
tournament, which weighed
6.05. Harper said that he caught
the big fish on his second cast of
the morning. Though he didn't
say, I'm sure he was using some
type of topwater lure.
If you've ever wanted to
pursue the mullet that inhabit


the waters of the Suwannee,
now is the time. Now, I'm not
talking about going down to the
mouth of the Suwannee and
finding a perch up on the
seawall, fishing from the shore.
That's an art all to itself, and
honestly one that I'm not
seasoned at. From what I've
seen and been told, that
particular style of mullet fishing
involves chumming the fish
with scratch feed or other
concoction and using multiple
hooks baited with a piece of
white soft plastic. Of course
that's just an overview, but I'm
sure you get the idea. The style
or technique of mullet fishing
I'm referring to is what I used to
do as a kid with a family friend
and relative. The late Eugene
Turman was my mentor, as he
was to many others including
his immediate family, friends
and of course his grandsons. We
used to venture out onto the
shallow shoal portions of the
river and collect what I can only
call green moss, simply because
I don't know what the scientific
name for it is and I don't think
anyone would care anyways.
Without sharing too many
secrets, I can tell you that we
generally used a Zebco 33
rod/reel combo that we would
rig with a treble hook and


n wb .

day night tournaments in Oldtown
columns. Photo: Submitted

position a spit shot sinker and a
bright cigar shaped cork several
inches above the hook. The
trick was getting the moss to
stay on your hook as you cast
out towards the swift water
where the mullet were
congregated. Using this age old
technique, Ty Robinson
(grandson of the late Eugene
Turman) recently caught around


mentioned in previous Dock Talk


20 nice Suwannee River Mullet.
I'm sure that as he enjoyed his
day, his mind wandered back to
the hot summer days spent
mullet fishing the Suwannee
with "Grandpa Gene" as a
youngster. I'm sure one day he
will enjoy passing down the
technique to his own children. I
know I will! If you get a
chance, take a kid fishing!


Loving pets for you from the Suwannee County Animal Shelter

This past Saturday the Suwannee County Animal
Shelter held an adoption drive in the parking lot of
Cheek and Scott on US 129. Our sincere thanks to
those folks who came out and adopted so many of our
cats and kittens, and some of the puppies we brought
out with us. It was so wonderful to see the enthusiasm
of everyone as they carried their new pets away with
big smiles on their faces. And we were especially
happy for those senior citizens who were able to claim
the few cats that were already spayed or neutered and
take them home for free ... for that day only the
adoption fees were waived for senior citizens, and
since the animal was already spayed or neutered, they
didn't have to worry about having that procedure done
at their expense, thanks to a couple of our volunteers
who fostered the cats and had the procedures done at
their own expense. We are so thankful for the
volunteers who help us "above and beyond" what is
asked of them.
We still have a few puppies available at the shelter,
as well as quite a few dogs and cats and kittens. Please
come by the shelter and check out our "furry residents"
who are ready to go to loving homes. They are sooooo
ready for a "forever" home, and there are some who
are coming close to the end of their time with us. We
are located 8 miles south of Live Oak at 11150 144th,
Street, on the same road as the large county landfill,
just off highway 129. We


9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., on Tuesday through Friday from 9
a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and on Saturday from 9 to around
noon, when we have just one officer on duty, so please
call the shelter at 386-208-0072 before you come on
Saturday to make sure someone will be there.
Our sincere thanks to Cheek and Scott for helping us
put on this "Adoption Day" by allowing us to use their
parking lot. And although she doesn't like to be in the
limelight, many thanks to "Wendy" for a job well done
in putting this event together on very short notice.
Thanks also to Janis Hunter and Joe Brown working
over and above their regular day's routine in getting
the animals ready for this event and transporting them
in the big white bus, and to all the volunteers who
showed up to help load the animals on the bu$ and help
with the day's event.
And thanks also to those folks who heard about this
event on various radio stations and stopped by with
donations of cat food and money as they ran errands
and were in our area. We are deeply appreciative of
the goodwill shown by all of you.
We hope to be participating in another similar event
in mid-July in the Sears parking lot in Live Oak, so
please watch your newspapers and listen to the radio
for more information on the dates. In the meantime
please come by our shelter and find that perfect new
furry member of your family. God bless!

first, first round draft choice.
Kelly has quietly become
Suwannee's best.
Kelly is what each football
player should aspire to, don't
give up the dream.
Kelly 's mom would not let
him play middle school ball in
seventh grade because at 116
lbs. she was afraid he might


get hurt. His parents have
been a wonderful influence on
this yes sir, no sir young man
with support and installing a
yeoman like work ethic.
Besides his parents Kelly was
influenced by Coach Jimmy
Jackson. Coach Jackson
pulled him over as a high
school junior and told him he
had an unlimited football
future. This is a coach not
short on talent evaluation,
seeing dozens of his receivers
and defensive backs going to
the next level. Kelly had
opportunities to go Division 1


as both a receiver and
defensive back. He choose
Miami where he attained a
degree in finance and a
fiance. When being checked
out by the NFL they remarked
to Coach Marsee this guy's
character sounded too good to
be true but after checking with
a few more coaches they were
believers. This is one of the
reasons he became a number
one draft choice, the 31st
player picked in the 2006 NFL
draft. Jackson wasn't the only
influence, Jennings calls
Andra Davis the epitome of


what an NFL player should be.
Kelly is involved in the
local Boys and Girls Club,
local church organizations and
other local charities. He also
bleeds green and sincerely
regrets he has only been able
to attend one Bulldog game
since going to Seattle. 'Kelly is
proud of his roots and
considers it an honor, to be
received as he is when he is
home. "I'm the same guy who
left a few years ago to play
football, I've been blessed,"
he says. And so has
Suwannee.

One cool




summer




hobby


Submitted
No matter how long you stare at the thermometer,
the mercury still hovers close to 100 degrees. Instead
of doing all those outside projects you had planned to
tackle this summer, you dream of cool, frothy
waterfalls cascading into the azure waters of
mountain lakes and rivers. Even the kids seem to
prefer to romp around inside the house or just watch
television rather than go out in the heat. If this is
what is going on in your family, maybe it is time to
try a new hobby everyone can enjoy indoors. Why
not set up an aquarium for a family summer project?
An aquarium has the potential to provide the cool
serenity everyone is seeking just by enjoying the
flow of the water and the graceful movements of
aquatic plants and fish.
An aquarium filled with fish is not only a beautiful
sight but can also be beneficial to your health. In
addition to serving as a recreational and educational
pastime, an aquarium helps relieve stress. The
soothing colors, motions, and even sounds of an
aquarium are therapy on the nerves. Studies over the
years have contributed aquarium ownership as a
factor in reducing blood pressure, pain and emotional
disorders.
An aquarium can also be a learning tool for
children. Observing the fish and plants and caring for
the tank are valuable resources to teaching
responsibility, as well as ecology and biology.
Owning an aquarium makes learning about plants
and animals fun by observing their natural
environments, needs, life cycles, and idiosyncrasies.
It is a great way to gain an appreciation for the
beauty, complexity, and diversity of nature.
Raising fish for enjoyment began with the
Sumerians over 4,500 years ago. In 1853, the first
aquarium exhibit opened in London's Regent Park. In
2007-08, according to the American Pet Products
Manufacturers Association's National Pet Owners
Survey, there were over 15 million U. S. households
with fish as pets.
You can design an individualized aquarium to suit
your lifestyle and personality preferences because
there are many, many varieties, colors and sizes of
aquatic fish and plants available. Florida is the
number one producer of aquarium fish in the country.
In fact, aquarium fish account for more than 40
percent of Florida's total aquaculture sales.
According to the U.S. Census of Aquaculture,
Florida's aquarium fish sales exceeded $32 million in
2005. In that same year there were 133 aquarium fish
producers in the state.


Visit the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services', Burt.. of Seafood and Aquaculture Marketing's
website, www.FL-Seafood.com to.find out more about
I. ; f r.; You will find information about Florida's
tropical fish and plants and a step-by-step guide for setting
up an aquarium. You will also find activities for the children
ind,,tdin free online games and coloring pages to print out.

Pawsenclaws & Co. at the Branford
Crossing on SR 247 in Lake City is now
under new ownership.
"We're offering a unique children's
experience," said new owner Becky Larson.
Located across from the Columbia
County Fairgrounds, Pawsenclaws offer
families a place where they can spend time
together. '
Choose from over 60 animals and over
100 outfits of plush toys.
First children pick out the animal and
sound chip greeting example: roar of a
bear or bear saying hello.
They help stuff the animal and pick out


an outfit.
The fun part then begins because they can
adopt a plush toy and pick out a name.
"Now you can build your own plush
animal closer to home without having to go
to Jacksonville or Gainesville," said Larson.
Pawsenclaws is open Monday through
Saturday, 10-6 and Sunday, 11-5.
The store will be open July 4th.
Make, dress and adopt your furry friend.
Pawsenclaws does birthday parties and
field trips.
"Any day you want to be special," stated
Larson. "Food, fun, friends and a friend to
take home."

If yQouhave ost :a pet,Qr.:
found one, the Humane
Society will help you find
your pet. Call 850-971-
9904 or toll-free at 866-
236-7812. Leave a mes-
sage if they are closed,
your call will be returned.
Remember to always call
your local animal control
or shelters if you have a
lost or found animal.
The Suwannee Valley
Humane Society really ap-
preciates donations; it
couldn't operate without
them. Donations are the
heart and soul of its thrift
shop income. Please con-
sider taking them dona-
tions of clothes, household
goods, furniture and toys.
All donations should be in
good condition; otherwise,
they cannot sell them.
Thank you!
Volunteers are wanted
and needed four hours a
week on the day of your
choice. Call to learn more.
People are always needed
to hold, pet, love and walk
the homeless animals at
the shelter, so if you can't
adopt you can always


come help in many other
ways.
RECYCLING BINS:
Live Oak: There is a
newspaper recycling bin at
305 Pinewood Drive, Live
Oak, just west of John-
son's Appliance/Radio
Shack.
Lee: Recycling bins are
located at the shelter at
1156 SE Bisbee Loop,
Madison (just South of
Lee) for newspapers, cata-
logs, paper, magazines and
broken down cardboard.
All the money goes to help
the homeless animals.
SPAYING AND
NEUTERING:
Experts say the most im-
portant thing people can
do to help their pets is to
get them spayed or
neutered. This means the
animals get an operation,
to be sure they can't have
kittens or puppies. They
:are asleep during the oper-
ation, so they aren't scared
or in pain.
Spaying and neutering
are so important because
there are so many animals
needing care and not
enough homes or shelters
for them.
One cat or dog can have
many litters in its life. Its

New research showing that some
artificial food additives can trigger
ADHD-type symptoms has led
Britain to begin the removal of
these chemicals from their food
supply. Now the British
government, along with scientists,
consumer groups, and parents in
countries throughout Europe, are
calling on the European Union's
Health Commissioner to remove
artificial food dyes from food in all
of Europe. But in North America
changes aren't so forthcoming.
Food dyes listed by a color +
number (such as Red 40 and
Yellow 5) are made from crude oil,
and have been linked to many
health problems, including
headaches, asthma, DNA damage,
nerve damage, and cancer, as well
as learning and behavior
problems. Since natural colorings
are available, the dyes are not
necessary.
Dr. Jim Stevenson, a professor at
Southampton University in
England who led the most recent
study published' in the September
2007 issue of the leading British
medical journal, The Lancet,
warns that these additives can
affect all children, not just those
diagnosed with ADHD. He
cautions that, like the lead which
used to be in gasoline, the
additives can lower a child's IQ
score.
"Before you conclude that your
child has a disorder," says Kathy
Bratby, M.S.N., R.N., clinical
assistant professor at the State
University of New York at Stony
Brook School of Nursing, "take a
look at what he or she is eating."
The non-profit Feingold
Association of the U.S. shows
families how to find the food they
enjoy, but without the unwanted
additives. Visit
www.ADHDdiet.org for
information and assistance.
