EXTENSION UPDAT




Managing in




tough times


By Cathy Rogers .
Family and Consumer "' ,
Sciences/4-H Agent
Suwannee County
Extension ,

These are tough times,
aren't they? One of the
ways that you can find
out if the pressure is real
or mostly conjured up
by the media is to figure
out your net worth and
compare it to your net
worth for the past few
years. To do this you
will need to list and add
up all of your assets; the cash you have
on hand as well as in accounts such as
savings, checking, IRAs, CDs, etc., plus
the market value of your car, home, and
other possessions that could be sold fairly
quickly.


Next list and add
together all of your
liabilities. This would
include any money that
you owe. Subtract your
liabilities your assets and
you have a picture of your
current net worth.
It's a little harder to go
back and figure up what
your net worth might have
been last year but you can
probably get a feeling for
whether it might have been
... better or worse. If you start
- to do this process annually,
say as you're doing your
taxes, you will soon see
either progress or the need
*' for approaching your
finances so that you will
see an increase in your net
worth each year.
Even in tough times
there may be ways that
you can increase your net
worth. One way is to save
some of your current
income, especially in ways
that will grow, such as
savings accounts that draw
compound interest.


Another way is to reduce your debts by
paying them down with your income.
This may mean cutting back on spending
on some of the things that you want now,
but it will ultimately create a better
quality of life later on.


Seriously, you may not be in as bad
shape as you think you are. When we
compare the price of things today with
salaries of today and then compare those
of several decades ago, we find that many
aspects of quality of life are actually
much better than they used to be! People
live longer, healthier lives, are far more
educated, and pay a smaller percentage of
their salaries for the basics in life.
A big difference is our comfort level.
We have grown accustomed to what used
to be considered luxuries and now we
think we can't live without them. For
many of us today's economy has cheated
us out of some of the finer things like
dinners out, gas for those, not just big, but
huge vehicles and cell phones. We have
come to think of these items as
necessities but they are not. For others,
the pinch is very real. Some families are
struggling to make ends meet even
without any of the luxuries.
As times get tougher we may all need
to think about how to manage our money
in ways that we never thought of before.
Some of the experts at the University of
Florida/IFAS Extension have recently
created a booklet filled with ideas for just
this purpose. It includes tips and
information about the following subjects
and more:
Having a spending plan (A must have!)
Debt management
Making extra money
Stretching your food dollar
Doing things as a family for less
Tips for teens


Adult children moving home
Managing stress
This booklet, entitled "Managing in
Tough Times" is available now at the
Suwannee County Extension Office next
to the Coliseum in Live Oak. Come by to
pick one up or call 386-362-2771 for
more information. We also offer a family
financial management class called
"Managing Your Financial Future." The
next one will be Tuesday, Sept. 16 from 5
to 8:30 p.m. at our office. The fee is $20
per couple. Please call to register by Sept.
12.'

Building your

financial future
Consumer debt is a major problem for many families. They have
more debt than they can pay. Savings are at an all time low and person-
al bankruptcy is at an all time high. Financial literacy is a problem na-
tionwide for both adults and young people.
Building Your Financial Future is a 4-hour financial management pro-
gram for adults of all ages. It is designed to provide information which
will help participants learn to better manage their available resources.

Bronson reminds residents that price gouging

hotline remains operational for Hanna


Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services (FDAS) Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson recently reminded
state residents that his department's
price-gouging hotline, which was acti-
vated two weeks ago for Tropical
Storm Fay, remains operational for the
approaching Tropical Storm Hanna.
"We're encouraging the public to re-
port to us any instances of price goug-
ing that they come across," Bronson
said.
Under Florida law,, it is unlawful to
charge exorbitant or excessive prices
for essential items, including shelter,
gasoline, food, water, ice, generators
or lumber, following the declaration of
an emergency, unless the increases in
the amount charged are attributable to
additional costs incurred by retailers.
Governor Charlie Crist declared a


state of emergency for Fay last month,
and he signed another executive order
earlier today designating that a state of
emergency exists for Hanna.
Individuals or businesses found to
have engaged in price gouging face
fines of up, to $1,000 per violation, or
up to a maximum fine of $25,000 a
day.
"We're asking consumers to come
forward and let us know if any retail-
ers have exploited our citizens or are
profiteering from the approaching
storm," Bronson said. "This activity is
not only reprehensible, it's illegal."
Bronson is asking residents who
have any evidence that price gouging
has occurred or is occurring to report .....
it at once to his department's toll-free "
hotline 800 HELP FLA (800-435-
7352).

GAMETIME



Orange box:



Five for one

By Cody Webb

The fall's flood
of games comes
ever closer, starting
with the newest
Silent Hill game at
the end of
September. So,
you've already
beaten Oblivion or . ..... -
you're just not an
RPG fan? Then you ought to give The Orange
Box a try!
The Orange Box is a compilation of five games
in one package and is available on the Xbox 360,
PS3 and the PC. I'm mainly going to discuss the
Xbox 360 version here, though. The games on it
are rated from T for Teen to M for Mature (with
Portal being the T-rated one). It was developed by
Valve, with EA UK handling the PS3 version. It
was released on Oct. 10 of last year. Other video
game compilations usually feature little cheesy
games or old games that were good when they
first came out and are dated now. This is not the
case with The Orange Box, however. It features
Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episodes 1 and 2, Portal
and Team Fortress 2. Keep in mind that all of the
games featured on The Orange Box are first-
person, four of them being shooters.
If you've played Half-Life 2 on the PC or Xbox
the only difference here will be the added
Achievements (Xbox 360 only) and if you've
played HL2 on the Xbox, this one features a much
better framerate than the previous Xbox attempt.
Supposedly, the PS3 version suffers from low
framerate during the Half-Life 2 games and slow
loading times during Portal. The PC
recommended requirements are kind of high;
you'll need an above average computer to play it.
If you enjoyed Half-Life 2, then you'll enjoy
the episodes that are also included, adding more
to the excellent story. They are well-written,'
expanding and evolving the already intriguing
storyline. The ending to the second episode may
even make the most hardcore gamers shed a tear!
The gameplay doesn't change much between the
three, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. New
enemies and vehicles also liner the Episodes,
adding a little more variety to the games. NMy
favorite enemy by far is the "Zombine;" a
zombified Combine soldier that spurs Alyx into
making a remark about the irony. Half-Life 2 has
a decent enough length of time to beat it, though
the subsequent 'episodes are short compared to it.
The plot arc makes it all worth it, though.
Portal brings something new to the gaming
world, being an excellent puzzle game. The game
puts you in the shoes of Chell, who gets put
through Aperature Science's test chambers, led
along by a friendly-sounding computer named
GLaDOS. She gets introduced to the Aperature
Science Handheld Portal Device (i.e. Portal Gun)
and then the real fun begins as you shoot portals
all over the place to get through the rooms, -
avoiding acid filled rooms, turrets and other
dangers. As you progress through the tests, you'll
begin to notice something is amiss in these
pristine rooms. Or, rather, beyond these rooms,
where the offices are abandoned and falling apart,
not a soul to be found anywhere. GLaDOS herself
even seems a bit off as you move along ... could
she be up to something a little more sinister? The
game's main downside is that it's rather short -
you could finish the game in one afternoon's
gaming session. That doesn't make it bad,
However. It offers you harder versions of the
puzzles when you beat the game, which you can
beat for achievements or bragging rights, or just
to challenge yourself. People who suffer from
motion sickness should steer clear of Portal, as
the puzzles get even harder you'll be flipping
about all over the place.
Team Fortress 2 doesn't stray far from the
original's concept: two teams against each other
in a variety of modes. Deathminatch, capture the
flag, territories and attack and defend are the
norm in TF2. The game features a unique
cartoony art style, the characters hilarious without
being over-the-top. Each class sports its own
personalized melee weapon, as well as primary
and secondary weapons. The classes are split into
three different categories, with three to each:
Offense, Defense and Support. Offense consists of
the quick and agile Scout, the flame-happy Pyro
and the rocket launcher-toting Soldier. Defense
consists of the turret building Engineer, the mine-
laying Demoman and the gatling gun-wielding


Heavy Weapons Guy. Finally, Support consists of
the healing Medic, the "one shot, one kill" Sniper
and the sneaky Spy. The gameplay is fast and
fluid, much like an online fragfest should be.
Controls are simple, button for jumping, for
reloading, changing weapons, ducking and firing,
leaving the other button open for the three taunts
that each class has. TF2 features several hours of
team versus team multiplayer, much like Halo 3.
Remember, TF2 can only be played online!
All in all, The Orange Box features a great
value: five excellent games for the price of one,
and even that price is low. You could probably
buy the game for thirty-to-forty dollars depending
on what system you get it for. A definite pick for
any first-person fan!

Want to vent?.

Our hofine is open

24/7.

Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak
your mind! How do you do that? By calling
the Suwannee Democrat Rant and Rave
hotline. The hotline never closes and is
your way to let it out. You.can let everyone
know how you feel -- as long as you express
yourself in a respectful way.
We appreciate your comments, but they
must be brief We want to publish as many
points of view as possible and long entries
are routinely omitted. About 100 clearly
spoken words (about 30-45 seconds worth)
should be enough to make your point. And
please do speak clearly when leaving your
message. If we can't understand you we
can't publish your opinion.
Note: In written entries to Rant and
Rave, errors in spelling, grammar or
punctuation are those of the authors.

I just wanted to compliment our tax col-
lector department. I went over to find out
about the new garbage tax hike and the
lady whom I spoke with was so pleasant,
explained everything thoroughly and every,
time you go to that department everybody
there is very, very nice and very knowl-
edgeable and very well done. I think our
tax collector has done an excellent job on
having his crew be as courteous as possi-
ble.

I just would like to say I would strongly
like to see the bowling alley sell beer on
Sunday. I don't think it would hurt any-
thing. Live Oak needs to lighten up a little
bit anyway. I think we should have a
protest and have some papers signed and
try to get alcohol sold on Sunday. Let's
liven Live Oak up a little bit, we need it.

Too much government How can a
county commissioner serve his county and
be a state representative at the same time?
One office he will be elected, the other
elected, but no voters. Remember voting.
Is this legal and who shall pay this person?

My call is concerning the traffic at the
Suwannee Elementary School. It's unbe-
lievable. I'm noticing that the amount of
policemen is obviously not the problem.
Cause we have plenty of policemen in
their cars to deter speeding along the road-.
way. But my question would be why don't
they get out of their vehicles and direct
traffic like they do in all the other cities
I've ever lived in. I'm just wondering about
this. And I know that standing can't be a
problem because there's plenty of police-
men in the Jiffy Store at night standing
around. There is a solution I think direct-
ing traffic is the solution.

Mayor Sonny Nobles' column would be
more effective if it were shorter and had
head notes so readers could understand the
points he is attempting to make.

Finally I've reached the end of my pa-
tience. Why is it that when you are driving
down the highway suddenly a car pulls out
in front of you when there is no traffic be-
hind you? It makes me feel they have a
death wish and I certainly am not ready to
meet my maker. Please, please take that
extra ten seconds and wait until I have
passed you by. Thanks much.
Ne,
Suwannee County the graded roads in


(R ave


this county are a horrendous mess. I my-
self went and got a load of lime rock and
started filling some holes in the road on
120th Street. Some of those holes are so
deep you don't want to go over them with
your car or light truck because you will
ruin the'front end. I spent an hour and a
half filling potholes. The county won't
take care of the roads. I have to do it my-
self. The road is so low it needs a whole
load of lime rock brought in and build the
road up again. It is nothing but sand. And
when it rains it gets potholes and ruts and
run offs and everything else. It think it's
plain disgusting. I thank you for the time
on R&R.
o ns
The person sounding off in Rant and
Rave Aug. 29 is so very unhappy with
everyone and everything in Suwannee
County, the agencies, the county commis-
sioners, the churches, attitudes, all these
and so forth. He could easily solve all
these problems with just move.

Thanks to the economy I find myself
having no choice but to leave my family
three and a half weeks out of the month.
just to make ends meet. I love my family
with all of my heart and I love Suwannee
County. I hope those we elect this year
will do their best to keep the jobs at home
and do their best to create more. "It's bet-.
ter than nothing," doesn't cut it any more.
"It helps," doesn't help enough. Without
the local voices being heard in Tallahassee
local voices will not be heard in Washing-
ton. Votes for jobs for everyone.

Some people call dung smeared bodies
artwork, I don't. How will selling beer on
Sunday hire 40 more teachers, fix our wa-
ter supply, clean up the Suwannee River,
bring in more doctors? This sounds like
some of things I heard from the conven-
tion last week -- half-truths. Slur throwing
about our community will not help, but
prayer might. From a God fearing fanafk.

I'm calling to rave about the fabulous
fireworks last night at the music park on
route 129. Anyone who missed this show
missed a wonderful show. The show lit, up
the sky from left to right. Everywhere you
looked it was like exploding stars, tiny lit-
tle stars exploding fell like diamonds from
the sky. I can't say enough about it.

I have a solution to political signs still
littering the roadways in Suwannee Coun-
ty from winners and losers. I went travel-
ing from 76th Street (Mitchel Road) on
Rocky Sink Road to 104th Street, approx.
4 miles and saw 37 political signs still lit-
tering the roadside. Here is .my solution to
collect these. signs. For every sign collect-
ed. by the general public turned in to the
Road Department (or whoever would have
the authority to enforce such an issue), re-
ward the collector of each sign $1.00 per
sign. Then whoever the sign represents,
should be charged $1.00 per sign. Just a
thought.
By the way, I could have made $37.00
in less than ten minutes, quick and easy
money don't you think?

Callers to 208-8314 may express their
thoughts, good or bad, 24/7 about com-
munity issues and politics, but not about
private individuals or businesses. If you
prefer, you may e-mail your comments to
nf.editorial@gaflnews.com. You don't
have to give your name, and please, take
no more than 30-45 seconds for your
comments. Let us know what's bugging
you.

Mozell Adams Law
Sept. 29, 1929 -
Sept. 1, 2008

M ozell Adams
Law, 78, of
Wellborn,
lorida, passed away Mon-
day, Sept. 1, 2008 at her
residence. Born on Sept.
29, 1929 in Toccoa, Geor-
gia, Mrs. Law had been a
resident of Wellborn, Flori-
da since 1984 having
moved here from El Paso,
Texas. She had worked as a
property manager for an

Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary



How Does Your Vegetable Garden Grow?


Our little Mary just Gardening Tips fro
got back from gro-
cery shopping the Live Oak Garden CI
other da.. Needless
to say, she was in By Lucille Bobiney Heinrich
sucker shock! Deter-
mined to do some-
thing about the high price of food, Mary has begun to
cut back on expensive cuts of meat and treats, avoid
pre-packaged meals, take advantage of sales, use .
coupons when she could, and reduce waste in her
kitchen, Further. since North Florida has two vegetable
growing seasons,. spring and fall, Mary decided that
this fall she w would add homegrown vegetables to her
table.
All of these strategies will save on her family's
food costs, but b\ growing her own vegetables,
Mary has also found a way to encourage her
children to enjo. eating salads and vegetables by
having them gro%% the vegetables as a family pro-
ject.
Mary determined that:
Her vegetable growing project needed to be
inexpensive in order to justify a savings in her
grocery bills. P
She did not ha\ e a lot of time to devote to
gardening nor did she have a lot of space for a, 1
garden. 3
She was not an experienced vegetable gar- o
dener. E
After some research, Mary decided that grow- m
ing vegetables in containers on her back patio
would be the answer. By using containers, she is
could easily mo\ e the plants around so that they a
received the proper amount of sunlight, shade, a
and water. Since this would be a fall garden, she is
also knew that in case of freezing. temperatures, ti
she would ha\ e no trouble protecting the plants, p
First, Mary and her family looked around their t(
shed and found suitable containers for their veg- .d
tables. Some were plastic, some metal, and p
some terracorta. but they all were free and ac- tt
ceptable. She put her children to work cleaning a
the containers. Next. Mary knew that you cannot w,
skimp on soil: .ou must have a good growing e
medium in order to have good results. But did b
our Mary run to the local gardening shop to buy
expensive pre-mi.ixed soil? No! Mary's husband s]
found a bare spot in the back of their flower gar- v,

the den and filled a container with this soil.
Mary and her children added some sand to
ib lighten up the soil and Mary purchased com-
mercial organic material to enrich it. They
were careful to add small rocks and pottery
shards in the bottom of their containers-for
drainage.
Then the big decision: What to plant? Mary's family
selected beets, broccoli, lettuce (leaf and romaine),
onions, parsley, English peas, spinach, and strawberries
as these were the types of vegetables that grew well in
the fall and winter months, and these were the foods
they enjoyed (at least some of them liked them; Mary's
6 year old won't touch vegetables, at least not now.)\\
A planting guide from the University of Florida


IFAS Extension told them that everything except the
English peas could be planted in September. The Eng-
lish peas would have to wait until January' Mary went
, to her local garden shop, purchased seeds and now the
family is starting the little seedlings according to the
package directions. Soon, Mary's family will begin
putting the seedlings into the containers that have been
prepared for them. Some of the seeds such as lettuce.
seeds will be sown directly onto the soil, and the
seedlings will have to be thinned when they sprout.
It will be a family project to care for the plants.
Mary's entire family is excited about the possibility of
eating their first homegrown salad or strawberry short-
cake! So our Mary is no longer contrary; she is one
smart lady!

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

Remember, do.not leave pets in
vehicles for any length of time due
to the heat-and humidity, or cold

classes, with one teacher overseeing
two of those classes, in grades seven
and eight. Academic areas include
Math, Life Science, U.S. History
and Career Planning.
Steele said none of the teachers
asked to take on a single-gender
class refused and all were enthusias-
tic about the idea.
"As a classroom the students are
more on task," said eighth grade
U.S. History and Career Planning
teacher Mary Cason. Cason has a
class with all girls. "There is no dis-
traction ... they use their time more
wisely," she said.
Fellow teacher Terry Brinson
agreed.
"There are fewer distractions, all
boys are more willing to open up
and discuss the subject matter with-
out the threat of embarrassment
(from the girls)." Brinson teaches
eighth grade Life Science.
Students in single-gender class-
rooms seem to like the arrangement.
"If guys were in the class, we,
probably wouldn't be focused," said
one female student.


"We get to discuss stuff more
freely without girls," said one male
student, who added that when boys
offer comments in class, "girls may
laugh at them."
School Board chairperson Julie
Ulmer also thinks the single-gender
program is a good idea.
"We are excited about a new pro-
gram that we feel like our children
will only make great learning gains,"
she said.
Ulmer said letters were sent to
parents weeks ago alerting them to
the program. "We wanted to increase
parent communication on this," Ul-
mer said.
Steele noted that it's still too early
to know how successful the'program
will be. However, she believes the
numbers so far show learning gains.
Results from last year's Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
show that some of the students test-
ed in single-gender classes per-
formed better on the math portion of
the test than those taking a mixed
gender class.
According to statistics kept at
SMS, 75 percent of boys in a single-
gender math class at the school reg-


Craig Carter takes

the reins at ACV


Continued From Page 1A

Carter has a 16-year ca-
reer at the Village. He has
served as the vice presi-
dent of resource develop-
ment for the last 12.
Carter, 44, is no new
kid on the block. He grew
up at the Village and his
father served as president
there during most of that
time.
"It was a great place to
grow up," Carter said'of.,
the Village, the oldest.re--
tiPVhifitcorGimunity in :
Florida. "There were
many opportunities most
people don't have."
As a child, Carter drew
from the wisdom and ex-
periences from the senior
adults in the community.
He remembers growing
up in a community wherer
neighbor is concerned
about neighbor."
"Everyone looked out
for each other," he said.
"There was a sense of
love and acceptance."
Not much seems to
have changed in that re-
gard.
Carter will follow in thi
footsteps of his father and
grandfather. His father, J.
Pomeroy Carter, served as
the president of the Vil-
lage from 1963-1995.


istered gains on the Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment Test, as did 71
percent of girls. In mixed classes,
the increase in test scores was as low
as 25 percent.
Opponents of single-gender class-
es worry about the reinforcement of
certain stereotypes or that resources
may not be properly allocated be-
tween the genders.
However, Florida law requires that
if a public school offers a single-
gender class, a co-ed course must be
offered as well. In addition, enroll-
ment in single-gender classes is vol-
untary.
Some opponents of single-gender
classrooms also argue that students
need to be able to interact with the
opposite sex for growth and maturi-
ty.
Suwannee Intermediate School
started its own pilot program this
year, offering two single-gender
classes. Principal Betty Ann Sumner
said teachers and administrators are
looking forward to the results.
"Anytime we can have innovative
programs that can benefit our stu-
dents, we should absolutely look
into those programs," she said.

The court ruled the lan-
guage of the Amendment 5
ballot summary mislead-
ing. Amendment 5 would
have eliminated the por-
tion of property taxes that
school boards are required
to collect to fund schools.
Some of the funds would
have been made up with
up to a one percent sales-
tax increase along with the
repeal of some existing tax
exemptions.
The ballot summary in-
dicated school funding
would not have been re-
duced due to provisions of
the amendment. However,
the amendment itself only


promises to "hold harm-
less" state schools for one
year.
Amendment 7 would
have allowed the use of
school vouchers at reli-
gious institutions. Amend-
ment 9 would have re-
quired at least 65 percent
of school funding be spent
in the classroom and not
on administrative func-
tions.
The court did not give a
reason for its decision to
strike these amendments
but said a formal opinion
would follow.
The Supreme Court did
not indicate if any of the
amendments might later be
put back on the ballot.

By Jo Ross
. JASPER A juvenile has been arrested
in the Aug. 28 burglary of Suwannee
Hardware in White Springs, according to
a report from the White Springs Police
Department. The suspect's name was not
released due to his age.
Merchandise and jewelry were
reported stolen, say authorities.
This is the second time Suwannee
Hardware has been burglarized in the last
60 days, according to White Springs
Police Chief Ken Brookins.
"I want the town of White Springs to
be a safe place to live and work," said
Stephanie Home, owner of Suwannee
Hardware. "Our police department is
doing a great job with the limited


resources they have. We (White Springs)
have had at least 10 burglaries in the past
90 days. Our residents are coming
together to discuss ways our citizens can
help our community."
Brookins said arrests have been made
in all the recent cases, but that more
charges are pending.
"Everybody talks about the state of the
economy," said Brookins when asked
about the increase in criminal activity.
"Most of us get a second job to get by. A
criminal just gets more aggressive. We
need more funding for more officers and
more equipment to counter these
'incidents."
According to reports, the break in
occurred during the early morning hours.

Meet your neighbor


Frank Goodson


Goodson turned 90 on Sunday. His
family and friends gathered at his
home to celebrate the occasion.
Goodson has one daughter, Ruby
Robinson, two grandchildren,
seven great-grandchildren and 10
great-great-grandchildren.





A hard-working man

By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com
Frank Goodson has been working ever since
he can remember. The oldest of six siblings, he
labored in the turpentine forests as a boy to
help put food on the table. His job was to clean
out the gutters from which pine tree resin
dripped through. The resin was collected in
large tubs and used to make turpentine, a
popular industry at the time.
Goodson's work schedule didn't permit him
to attend school, so he never learned to read
and write. Years later his wife, Lura, a school
teacher, offered to teach him how, but
Goodson, who turned 90 on Sunday, says he
just couldn't fit it into his-schedule.
"I can't read and write, but you can't trap
me or cheat me," Goodson said, referring to
the common sense the Good Lord gave him.
At the age of 13, Goodson left home and
became a hob6. He hopped from train to train
around the country, where he worked for a
while and then moved on. During that time
Goodson remembers being so poor that he
sometimes didn't eat for two or three days at a
time.
After marrying, Goodson and Lura moved to
Lura's parents farm in southern Suwannge,..
County. There he farmed and raised pigs.' He-
also worked at a Live Oak creosote plant for
25 years.
While Goodson's neighbors were still using
a mule and buggy to get around, he was
driving a 1926 Ford Mercury.
"I had the first car around here," Goodson
said. "I bought a driver's license for 25 cents."
Goodson chauffeured neighbors, taking
them to buy groceries and to doctor's
appointments.
Goodson still lives on the same land, though
much of it has been divided among family
members. His wife passed away about .15
years ago. The couple.was married for 28
years.
Goodson never completely retired.
"I came in this world kicking and I've been
kicking ever since," he said.
His current working schedule includes
maintaining a small garden in his backyard;
mowing five lawns, including the yard at New
Zion Missionary Baptist, which he attends;
picking'up pecans; and cleaning trash around
the springs near where he lives.
Goodson still uses the same tractor that he
purchased in 1975 to plow his garden. And the
tractor seems to be as resilient as he. He says
the two back tires on it are original.
When Goodson's work is done for the day
he sits in his chair in front of the television and
watches what he calls his "stories." His
favorite show is "Walker Texas Ranger."

The Suwannee Bulldogs open up the
season tonight against the Hamilton
County Trojans at Paul Langford Stadi-
um.
The 'Dogs lost to the Dunnellon
Tigers 51-14 in the Kickoff Classic last
Friday. With only 37 players on the
filed, Coach Tommy Chambers said
the boys had their work cut out for
them. Suwannee has lost about a dozen
starters to academic ineligibility, disci-
plinary problems and injuries. Cham-
bers said that six players will be out
for tonight's game due to injuries. Of-
fensive lineman Cody Chauncey broke
his wrist in the third quarter against
Dunnellon. This is the second time
Chauncey has broken his wrist.
Chambers said the Kickoff Classic
helped the team learn which areas need
to be addressed. "We look forward to
correcting mistakes from the preseason
game," Chambers said. "We were -
lucky enough to have this game to
work on problems. We look to get bet-
ter every week and some of the young
kids are just going to have to step it
up."
The Trojans suffered a 37-0 loss to
the Lafayette County Hornets in their
Kickoff Classic. The Trojans fumbled
the ball 10 times and lost it four times.
Coach Al Nelson said they are learning
from their mistakes as well.
"W..are going to come out and play
our hardest and play a good clean
game with sportsmanship and charac-
ter," he said.
Kickoff is at 7:30.

Samusla, FL Effective immediately all FAS-

Racing Tires. The competitors will have three
weeks to use up the tires that they have. We will
use #2045 Hoosier for 10 X 15. We will not use
a split compounds, 2045 on left and right.
Hoosier assures.us that stager of 1" 3" will not
be a problem.
I regret leaving Goodyear after 18 years, but
this is the best move for FASCAR, Hoosier and
the racers.
The 8" tire will be the F53 8 x 15. This will
also be used for the left and right.
This is like the tire we are currently using
without the 4 groves. Mini Stocks will be on the

Day camp

a success
On Wednesday, July 23, 80 campers
and parents got to feel like baseball
stars. Our very own Suwannee Parks &
Recreation Summer Day Camp set off
in the wee hours of the morning for the
field trip of a lifetime. Our group trav-
eled to St. Petersburg to see the Tampa
Bay Ray's play the Oakland A's. Many
thanks to the Ray's organization and
the Florida Recreation & Park Associa-
tion for making -our children feel so
special. Everyone had a great time.
Tropicana Field is an amazing stadium.
It is actually an entertainment center
that is all indoors, friendly staff, shop-
ping, games and plenty of food.
Thank you to FRPA (Mindi Finch)
for organizing the opportunity for 20 of
our children to go out on the field and
play catch with one another. The best
part of that was getting to be on the
"big screen". Yes, they announced
Suwannee Parks & Recreation Summer
Day Camp, Awesome! Two of our par-*
ents and three campers were lucky
enough to ride around in the Ray's
truck and wave to the crowd while the
crowd tried to catch Ray's memorabilia
being shot into the stands. "Let me tell
you those 5 people were smiling and
waving like rock stars," said Dana
Esco, Day Camp Coordinator.'
Opening Ceremonies consisted of a
beautiful tribute to our soldiers fol-
lowed by our very own Suwannee
Parks & Recreation Director, Greg
Scott who serving as, President of the
Florida Recreation & Park Association,
threw out the first pitch (and yes it
made it over the plate!). After a very
exciting victory for the Ray's all the
children in the entire stadium had an
opportunity to run the bases. Parks and
Recreation Director Greg Scott said,
"this is not just a baseball game, it was
a great experience."
The staff would like to thank all the
parents that helped make this happen.

Price Gouging Hotline Remains

Operational For Hanna
Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson today reminded state residents that his de-
partment's price-gouging hotline, which was activated two
weeks ago for Tropical Storm Fay, remains operational for the
approaching Tropical Storm Hanna.
"We're encouraging the public to report to us any instances
of price gouging that they come across," Bronson said.
Under Florida law, it is unlawful to charge exorbitant or ex-
cessive prices for essential items, including shelter, gasoline,
food, water, ice, generators or lumber, following the declara-
tion of an emergency, unless the increases in the amount
charged are attributable to additional costs incurred by retail-
ers.
Governor Charlie Crist declared a state of emergency for
Fay last month, and he signed another executive order earlier
today designating that a state of emergency exists for Hanna.
Individuals or businesses found to have engaged in price
gouging face fines of up to $1,000 per violation, or up to a
maximum fine of $25,000 a day.
"We're asking consumers to come forward and let us know
if any retailers have exploited our citizens or are. profiteering
from the approaching storm," Bronson said. "This activity is
not only reprehensible, it's illegal."
Bronson is asking residents who have any evidence that
price gouging has occurred or is occurring to report it at once
to his department's toll-free hotline 1 800 HELP FLA (435-
7352).

Roger Clemens for wins.
Aurelio Rodriguez is setting

Laurie, Anderson brings her UFPA co-commissioned work

Homeland to the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts


GAINESVILLE, Fla. Laurie Ander-
son has built a reputation for creating
multimedia filled performances. Often in-
corporating cutting-edge special effects,
Anderson's work is known for both its
technological sophistication as well as it
political and social commentary. For her
latest artistic endeavor, however, Ander-
son has gone back to her roots, focusing
on an experience that emphasizes lan-
guage and music. Homeland, which was
co-commissioned by the University of
Florida Performing Arts, makes its Flori-
da debut at the Phillips Center for the
Performing Arts Tuesday, Sept. 16.
Laurie Anderson is one of today's pre-
mier performance artists. Born in Chica-
go, she moved to New York City in the
mid-1960s, quickly joining its avant-
garde scene and staging experimental
performances. Among her earliest efforts
were O-Range, where 10 people stood in
a stadium shouting stories through mega-
phones and As: If, which involved Ander-
son standing on stage wearing skates
frozen in blocks of ice.
Anderson's first mainstream "hit"
came in 1982 when 0 Superman, from
her eight-hour opera United States I-V (a
piece that was highly critical of the Rea-
gan government) caught the ear of UK
radio DJ John Peel. Peel began playing it
on the radio and 0 Superman shot to
number two on the UK charts quite a
feat for a song that was more than eight
minutes long.
Since 0 Superman achieved hit status,


Anderson has released a number of musi-
cal outpourings on the Warner Brothers
label, including Mister Heartbreak, Unit-
ed States Live and Strange Angels, and
toured around the world with her stage
shows, including Empty Places, The
Nerve Bible and Songs and Stories for
Moby Dick, based on Herman Melville's
novel. In 2002, Anderson became the
first artist-in-residence at NASA, from
which she developed her solo perfor-
mance The End of the Moon.
Her latest work, Homeland, is a series
of stories and songs that creates a poetic
and political portrait of contemporary
American culture. Conceived as one long
piece of music, Homeland moves
through many worlds from Greek
tragedy to American business models.
The stories and songs that make up
Homeland are all marked by a political
urgency. They address the current cli-
mate of fear, obsession with information
and security. They are also as with all
of Anderson's work personal and
unique. At the heart of Homeland is sto-
rytelling.
"One of the reasons that I'm interest-
ed in telling stories is that stories are so
powerful," said Anderson in a podcast
interview with Australia's Dig Radio. "I
also think that when you're telling a sto-

FWC officers deploy for Louisiana search-and-rescue


As Hurricane Gustav pounded the
northern Gulf Coast Monday, 34 law en-
forcement personnel from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) assembled at Milton High
School to move in behind the storm.
The FWC deployed 31 officers, two
mechanics and a radio technician to assist
local authorities in Louisiana with search-
and-rescue operations during the critical
two-to-three days after the brunt of the
hurricane. The FWC officers had 22
small, shallow-draft boats in tow and oth-
er equipment to find and rescue stranded
people.
Louisiana officials have agreed to reim-
burse Florida for the cost of the assis-
tance.
"We have the equipment, the training
and the experience to help our friends in
Louisiana survive this storm," FWC


Chairman Rodney Barreto said. "That
carries with it the moral obligation to do
our part for them, and they can count on
us to do all we can without putting our
own residents at risk."
Gov. Charlie Crist, who also made re-
sources from other state agencies avail-
able for the operation, accompanied the


FWC convoy from the Santa Rosa Coun-
ty high school to the Alabama State Line.
FWC Maj. Curtis Brown and Maj. Brett
Norton will command the agency's
search-and-rescue efforts and direct offi-
cers to trouble spots identified by
Louisiana officials.
FWC personnel on the scene include.
the agency's Special Operations Groups
from the Northwest and North Central re-
gions. Special Operations Groups are
M FWC officers with special training and
equipment to assist in natural and man-
made disasters and who have agreed to
deployment at any time, regardless of
their own situations at home.
Three years ago, the officers moved in
to. Mississippi in the wake of Hurricane
Katrina with crucial law enforcement and
life-saving rescue efforts. Local agencies
lost all their emergency equipment, vehi-


cles, vessels and communications and re-
lied on the FWC for help.
Meanwhile, FWC leaders are keeping
an eye on Tropical Storm Hanna as it ap-
proaches Florida. Other FWC resources
are on standby, and the FWC units in
Louisiana will return to Florida if needed
to cope with that storm.

Through your love, if you drove or

Loving Pets for you from the

Suwannee County animal shelter


'By Ana Smith
This week we are featuring some of the cats and kit-
tens that are in desperate need of homes before their
time at the shelter is
up. In addition, we -'"
have a wide variety of
kittens in our foster ..
care program that are
ready tobe adopted. .
.,ong-nair, snort-har,
orange tabbies, silver
and black, black and | .
white, a lovely tor-
toise-shell and a few
with multi-colored
coats are all ready to
go to loving homes.
And if you want to
help our shelter, but
don't have the time to.
spend with us, please
think about donating
cat and kitten food and .._. -
bags of litter for our
foster families. They take in these kittens at their own
expense, which can add up to a pretty costl\ figure.
and donations of food and litter is such a big help
Just call me at 386-364-5584, let me know you have
a donation, and I'll make arrangements to pick it up.
Our shelter is always overflow ing % ith cats and
dogs, kittens and puppies, so please think about com-
ing to our shelter when you are read\ for that special
pet. We are located at 11150 144th St.. McAlpin. on
the same street as the county landfill We are open on
Monday from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.. Tuesday
through Friday, from 9 a.m until 4:30 p m. and Sat-
urday from 9 a.m. until about noon. There is only one
animal control officer on dut) on Saturda). so please

Money can make us happy...


If we share it

A recent study at the University of British Columbia
found that when people were given money, and then told ..
to either spend it on themselves or on others, those f
who spent it on others were happier. In the study,
college students were given modest amounts of
money (either $5 or $20), and then told to either
spend it on themselves or to spend it on others
by the end of the day. Those who spent the
money on others reported more satisfaction
than those who spent it on themselves, and we
would probably achieve similar results if larger
amounts of money were involved. Indeed, in a
national survey conducted by Michael Norton
at Harvard Business School; when people were
surveyed about their spending habits, those
who gave more to charitable causes reported
higher levels of happiness than those who
spent mostly on themselves. We are social
creatures, and we respond positively to helping
others and strengthening social bonds. Having .,
money, even large amounts, is not a bad thing;
it is how we use our money that is considered
good or bad. The person who hoards their
wreath and think only of them self is
obviously being selfish; the person who uses
their wealth wisely to benefit others is not only
Helping others but is also helping them self in
the process. We must remember that money, in
and of itself, is not good or bad* but can be
REMEMBER considered good or bad depending on how we
THE POOR use it. So, we should try to use our money
THE POOR wisely to benefit others and cultivate a spirit of
generosity.

For the love of money is the root of all evils; it is through this craving that some have
wandered away from the faith and pierced their habits with many pangs.

A MAN OF GOD


David H. Matier,
Doctor of
Pastoral Counseling
God's man.should work
as hard in the ministry as
any other man does at his
job. One time while pas-
toring a church that was-
n't able to pay my salary
I read meters. When my
job required me to talk to
a pastor that I found in
bed at about 11:30 a.m.
for no good reason other
than he was sleeping in
on a weekday I wasn't
impressed. It is God's
business and should be
worked as though the per-
son doing it thinks it is
important business! Oth-
erwise he needs to get out
of the business. Every
city needs a man of God;
a sure enough real man of
God that will stand on his
hind feet and raise up the
Bible and not be afraid to
say, based on God's
Word, "Thus saith the
Lord."
Every city needs a man
of God to preach the
word; "be instant in sea-
son, out of season; re-
prove, rebuke, exhort
with all longsuffering and
doctrine. For the time
will come when they will
not endure sound doctrine
but after their own lusts
shall they heap to them-
selves teachers, having
itclhg .ears," (II Ti moth)
4:2, 3). The preacher is to
preach with out respect of
persons because there are
many who are more inter-
ested in listening to mes-
sages of false prophets
and that is true in our
day.
In this day of "wars and
rumors of war, depres-
sion, despair, anger, anxi-
ety every community
needs a man of God that
can pray" (II Kings 4).
Elisha was used mightily
of God. Through him God
raised up the Shunammite
woman's son because El-
isha was a man of God
that prayed; that walked
close to God. Don't ex-
pect your pastor to be
running all the time.


Make sure he has the
time to be alone in the
Word. That is his work.
Remember deacons were
raised up to wait on the
physical needs of the peo-
ple of the church. "It is
not reason that we should
leave th& word of God
and serve tables," said the
early Apostles so the
church assembled there at
Jerusalem chose certain
men to do the job of
"waiting on tables" (Acts
6). Notice when everyone
was in his place doing
what the Lord wanted
him to do "the word of
God increased; and the
number of the disciples
multiplied," (Acts 6:7).
A man of God is need-
ed in every community
that can give accurate
counsel from the Word of
God to meet your need.
In I Kings 12:22 the peo-
ple of Israel saved them-
selves a lot of failure by
listening to the man of
God. The same Shunam-
mite woman who had
confidence in the prayers
of the man of God also
had great confidence in
the counsel of God's man.
"The woman arose, and
did after the saying of the
man of God:" (II Kings
8:2). And as a result she
lived through a 7 year
famine that she and her
son would have otherwise
famished in. Seek coun-
seling from you pastor;
having marriage prob-
lems; problem with your
children, etc. Sometimes
medication is needed,
then you will need to see
an MD/psychiatrist; but
many pastors are trained
in counseling.
A man of God to weep
,is needed. When Elisha
saw the future pain Haza-
el would inflict upon Is-
rael he wept (II Kings.
8:11). Every community
needs a man of God that
will weep with his people
when they weep; one who
feels their pain and their
stress; one that is accessi-
ble to his people and his
people can count on him
keeping their conversa-
tions with him confiden-
tial.
As a Pastor, will you
stand up and be that man
of-God in your communi-
ty?

A healthy attitude, a healthy you


"Do you want to get
well?" Seems an odd ques-
tion; surely anyone in their
right mind who wasn't
"well" would want to be;
wouldn't they? No doubt
an out of the ordinary
question, yet the Bible
records the following con-
versation:
"Now there is in
Jerusalem near the
Sheep Gate a pool,
which in Aramaic is
called Bethesda and
which is surrounded by


five covered colonnades.
Here a great number of disabled -
people used to lie-the blind, the
lame, and the paralyzed. One who
was there had been an invalid for
thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw
him lying there and learned tiat he
had been in this condition for a long
time, he asked him, "Do you want
to get well?"
"Sir," the invalid replied, "I have
no one to help me into the pool
when the water is stirred. While I
am trying to get in, someone else
goes down ahead of me." Then Je-
suits said to him, "Get up! Pick up
your mat and walk." (John 5:2-8)
The phrase "want to" has a deep-
"er intention in the Greek translation
than what we might suppose. It .'
means not simply wishing for some-
thing, but also taking the next step
to press into action. We might say it
like this: "Do you want to get well
bad enough to do something about
it?"
It was commonly believed in


Jerusalem that an
angel would occa-
sionally visit the
pool of Bethesda
and stir the waters.
When this hap-
pened, the first per-
son to immerse
themselves in the
water.would be
healed of any infir-
mity. Instead of
answering Jesus'
question, the par-
alytic blamed his
inability, to get


well on the fact
that he had no one to help him.
Don't we do the same? Especially
when it comes to the health of our
relationships? We can clearly see
that things just aren't working, and
yet instead of taking responsibility
for our part in the problem, we jus-
tify doing nothing by blaming it on
the behavior of others: "I wouldn't
act like that if she didn't make me
so mad," or "Why should I apolo-
gize? It's not all my fault!"
Little do we realize that this atti-
tude will keep us from getting well
and from making the changes nec-
essary to become healthy people
who can sustain healthy relation-
ships. Casting the blame on others
may make us feel better temporari-
ly,-but it always leaves us with our
problems. The longer we continue
in this pattern, the more dangerous
it becomes. In fact, when Jesus
commanded the paralytic to "Get
up!" He was actually telling him to
wake up and become attentive to his


dangerous position. We would be
wise to wake lup to some issues of
our own: anger and controlling is-
sues, lack of self-control and selfish
ambitions, just to name a few. The
longer we blame conflict caused by
such things on others, the less likely
we are to take responsibility for our
part, and the more unhealthy our re-
lationships will remain. We would*
do well to consider Jesus' question
and decide that our answer is yes;
enough so to take action, take re-
sponsibility and get well, because
our hearts matter!

Defense of marriage


By Derek Maul


This past week- -
end our friends
Steve and Diane in- '
vited my wife, Re-
bekah, to officiate
at their daughter
Julie's wedding at
the beautiful First
Presbyterian
Church in Norfolk
Virginia.'
We absolutely LOVE happy
weddings, and believe me
'when I say too many weddings
have issues and sub-plots and
family dynamics that are any-
thing but warm and fuzzy. Our.
friends' wedding, however,
was a bona-fide joyful occa-
sion marked by real affection,
meaningful commitment and
genuine celebration.
I've got to say this is a great
time in the lives of our peers.
We're mostly in our fifties
now, watching our children be-
come adults. They're indepen-
dent, motivated, and getting on
with their lives. Daughter Julie


is happy, ergo
Steve and Diane
are happy. Tired,
)es vert very
tired; but absolute-
)l happy. Rebekah
and I can't help
**'burbe'gratefulTo-'
God when "we see
our friends smil-
:',y ing like this. But
there's a brutal
statistic tagged on
to most of today's nuptials.
Over fifty percent of all mar-
riages now end in divorce, and
the numbers are even more
staggering for the 20-40
crowd.
Being a person of faith, it
turns out, is no hedge against
failure. But, an ongoing deci-
sion to become a family faith-
fully committed to putting.
faith into practice, deliberately
and consistently, yields results
that are impossible to ignore.
So I've got to be honest
here: It's not a legally narrow
"defense of marriage" law that
this state needs... so much as a


spiritually reinvigorating
"commitment to follow Jesus
with integrity." That's what my
friends and I want for our chil-
dren, and that's the only thing
with a prayer of saving Flori-
da's families.

To stink, or not to stink, that is the question


By the Rev. James L. Snyder

There are all kinds of
questions in this world of ours.
Most are rather annoying. It
would not surprise me in the
least if there were a gang of
hooligans somewhere hired to
make up silly questions. If I
could find this gang, I would
disperse them immediately,
without a question.
Of course, there is the fact that
the Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage is in cahoots with
these question-maker-uppers.
Every once in awhile she comes
up with questions for Yours.
Truly.
It is not the questions I object
to but rather the answers I am
supposed togive in connection to
the questions. My w ife has a silly
notion that the answers I give
should be in direct correlation to
the questions she asked. Who
made up this rule? Oops, that
was a question. Sorry about that.
It is my opinion, and mine
alone especially in my home,
that if I am asked a question I
should have the option to give
the answer I want to give
whether it relates to the question
or not. My wife insists my


answer should be a response to
her question.
More times than I care to
admit, when my wife is asking
her second question, I am still
thinking about her first question.
By the time she had gotten to her
sixth question, I have formed an
answer for that first question.
And when she is asking her tenth
question, I am answering her first
question.
It is all very confusing to me
because she always says, "That
was not what I asked you?" It
was but she was so far ahead of
me that it is virtually impossible
for me to catch up. So, if I cannot
catch up, I catch flak.
Last week, for example, she
put to me a very penetrating
question. "What is that awful
smell?"
I would not have tdken offense
to the question so much but she
was looking straight at me when
she posed it. What I took from
the question. was that I, for some
reason unbeknownst to me,
smelled pretty bad. Even though
it was not Saturday night, I took
the hint and marched my raunchy
body to the bathroom for a bath.
I just took for granted that
there was an odor around. I do


have a nose but the primary
function of my nose is to be a
resting place for my spectacles.
Something has to be awful for
me to smell it. My wife, on the
other hand, has superhuman.
smelling properties. She can
smell a rotten apple while it is
still a blossom on the apple tree.
I thought the question of
"What stinks?" had been
thoroughly answered. So, I
dressed and got in my car to go
to the office. On the drive to the
office, I noticed something rather
peculiar. My car stank. There
was some terrible odor in my car
that I could not identify. I knew it
could not be me for I had just
.come from a fresh bath only a
few moments ago. But there was
an unmistakable stench in the
car. '
I arrived at my office, got
seated behind my desk and began
some work when I noticed
something peculiar. My office
stank. It smelled as if some old
alley cat had found its way into
my office, crawled behind a
bookcase, and died ... two weeks
ago. I began searching the office
for the decaying carcass creating
such a disgusting odor in my
office.


I finally gave, up and went
home. Before I could tell my
wife about the problem at the
office and in the car, she
surprised me with another
question.
"What is that awful smell?"
She was looking straight at me
with the obvious conclusion that
the smell was coming from my
direction.
By this time, I too was
noticing the smell so it must
have been something rather
awful. I just knew it could not
have been me because only two
hours ago I immersed myself in
the bubbly and vigorously
scrubbed off any odor that might
have been lodged on my body. I
even threatened my body with a
Brillo pad. I knew the odor was
not on me.
"Where is that smell coming
from?" my wife demanded as she
approached me with her nostrils
flaring. The closer she got to me
the more her nose wrinkled in
agony. It was then she made a
startling conclusion.
"That odor is coming from
you. You stink."
Well, if words could kill you
would be reading a very nice
obituary in the newspaper this


morning. I was deeply offended
by this observation.
When she got close to me, she
examined my person very
carefully and then looked down
at my shoes. "How long have
you had those shoes?"
They were my favorite shoes
so I had them quite a long time. I
mumbled something like about
five years.
"Aha, it is your shoes that
stink. Those shoes are rotten and
you will have to throw them out.
I do not want to see those shoes
in this house ever again."
I was reminded of a verse in
the Bible. "For though thou wash
thee with nitre, and take thee
much soap, yet thine iniquity is
marked before me, saith the Lord
GOD." (Jeremiah 2:22 KJV).
You can clean up all you want
to but if you are still wearing
rotten shoes you still stink.

Over the Top
In 1817 an inventor came up with a
two-wheeled device made entirely of
wood that you push with your feet. It
was nicknamed the "hobbyhorse".
Although there were many variations on
the device, the true "bicycle" didn't
develop until around 1870. By this time
stronger metal parts were available that
afforded new designs. Inventors realized
that a smother ride could be achieved
with a larger front tire. Unfortunately,
that design also allowed the rider to flip
over if they hit a bump in the road, thus
coining the phrase, "taking a header".
Changing Gears
Ever since the bicycle's invention,
people have been pushing the limits for
the biggest and the best. For example, in
2007 more than 1,900 cyclists gathered
-* in Taipei City, Taiwan to form the largest
bicycle parade. Back in 2002 a group of
mechanical engineers in the Netherlands
built the world's longest bicycle at 92' 2".
In Germany Didi Senft built the largest
rs bicycle with a height of 12'2" and a
length of 25' 7". All of these records are
j giving the term "bicycle enthusiast" a
whole new meaning.

Birthday Brake
I admit it., Being a dad isn't always
easy for me.' Sometimes I don't
choose the best way to explain things
to my child.
When I'gave my son a bicycle with
training wheels, I took him outside to
give it try. At first I held onto the
handlebars. After a few steps, I let
go and ran alongside. As he picked
up speed, I stopped running and
shouted, "step back on the pedals and
the bike will brake." He nodded in
agreement, but ran straight into the
bushes at the end of the driveway.
As I rushed over to brush him off, I
asked why he didn't push back on the
pedals.
Proving my point he replied, "You
said if Idid, the bike would break!"
(Thanks to William B.)
