f 1Tomorrow marks
seven years since
SAmerica was
changed forever.
Democrat reporter
Vanessa Fultz
in took to the streets
to ask Suwannee
s n e I 1^ Countians about
the lasting effects
^91 on their lives of
the terrorist
attacks of
Sept. 11, 2001.


"In a way it made us wake up and
realize there's more threats out
there than we realize. I think we
got too complacent and thought
that nobody could touch us."
- Mitchell Young


"It made me want to get closer
to God. For a while people's
lives were changed because
they began to realize we may
not be here forever and thpy
started going back to church ...
but now it's kind of safe and
they're drifting back into their
old complacency." Sue Hygema

By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
The Suwannee County Commission
voted at a public hearing Monday
night to raise the annual solid waste
assessment fee to $130 a year per par-
cel, a 13 percent increase from last
year's rate of $114.76. Commissioners
could have raised the fee, which cov-
ers dumping household' waste and
other refuse at county collection sites,
t6 as much as $168.53, an increase of
47 percent.
About 130 citizens showed up at
City Hall to protest the proposed rate
hike.


"I really feel that this is wrong,"
county resident Penny Staffni told
commissioners at the meeting. "This
is a really high hike, you are just go-
ing to have to, like the rest of us, suck
it up and tighten the belts."
Homeowner Patrick O'Hare agreed.
"It is just unbelievable how the
prices keep going up and up it's al-
ways the homeowner who has to
come up and foot the bill," O'Hare
told commissioners-. "It is just not fair
for the homeowners all the time to
come up %with this."
O'Hare suggested the county tax lo-

: where I'm at. You always
S lll watch your surroundings. You
go to a restaurant and you
always sit so you're facing the
door." John Manning

"It made us realize that God is

to come back to him, too."

city of Live Oak is still dealing with the leftovers of Tropical Storm Fay. Here,
Mayor Sonny Nobles, left, and Councilman Mark Stewart examine storm debris
temporarily deposited near the city cemetery. The state Department of Environ-
mental Protection has authorized this temporary storage area until October 15.
Trucks will later haul the debris to the county landfill. Nobles and Stewart said
Friday that city employees are working as fast as possible to remove storm debris
from residents' yards. Photo: Barbara Gill

GTE Federal Credit Union con-
ducts their annual United Way em-
ployee giving campaign in the
spring; however, the company, like
many others conducting a fall com-
munity giving initiative, has
planned a fall food drive. The GTE
employees at each of the. three of-
fices invite all of their members to
bring donated food to any of the
GTE offices through Monday, Oct.
13, which has been designated as
the credit union's "Spirit Day." On
that day all of the donated food will
be provided to the Food Bank of
Suwannee Valley, which makes the
food available to community agen-
cies and church pantries which are
food bank members.
Branch Manager Regina Hester
arranged the food drive through the
United. Way of Suwannee Val-
ley. "Annually, our office staff takes
on a community service project or-
ganized through the United Way. In
the past our branch employees have
participated in a community work
project on their day off for Colum-


bus Day. This year, we elected to
conduct a community service pro-
ject in which the communities we
serve can participate with us. To-
gether, we can do so much more,"
stated Hester.
United Way of Suwannee Valley
initiated the food bank in 2004 after
identifying as an unmet need the
absence of a food bank to serve lo-
cal community agencies and church
food pantries. A grant secured by
United Way provided for the opera-
tional costs through most of 2005 to
provide a period to cultivate com-
munity support and member agen-
cies. Arrangements were made for
the food bank to transition to be-
come a program of Catholic Chari-
ties, an existing community agency
,with a mission including feeding
the hungry. Community agencies
and church food pantries can inves-
tigate participation in the food bank
by contacting Food Bank Manager
Scott Elkins at 386-755-5683.
In the United Way of Suwannee
Valley service area there are three


GTE locations, all of which are
managed by Hester. These branches
include White Springs, Jasper and
Lake City.
GTE Federal Credit Union enjoys
a long history dating back to when
the Federal Credit Union Act was
signed into law in 1934. Originally
the credit union served what was
then the Peninsular Telephone
Company in 1935. In 1958, the
name changed to General Tele-
phone Employees Federal Credit
Union. The credit union experi-
enced its final name change in 1971
when it became GTE Federal Credit
Union.
United Way of Suwannee Valley
is a community impact and
fundraising organization which, uti-
lizing volunteers on all levels, ad-
vances the common good by identi-
fying unmet community needs and
seeking to alleviate those needs
through United Way of Suwannee
Valley initiatives and the funding of
23 affiliated health and human ser-
vice agencies.

Brothers appointed to Leaping stur

NFCC Board of Trustees . 1


North Florida Communi-
ty College alumnus Dr. -.
Bill Brothers has been ap- ,
pointed to the NFCC Dis-
trict Board of Trustees.
Brothers, 44, a native of
Madison County who now
resides in Suwannee Coun- Dr. Bill
ty, was appointed by Gov. Brothers
Charlie Crist Aug. 15 to
fill an open position bn the board. Broth-
ers' appointment will run thru May 31,
2010- Brothers attended his first board
of trustees meeting as a board member
Aug. 19. He succeeds Walter Boatright.
Jr.
Brothers' attended NFCC on a scholar-
ship given in honor of his father, Shelby
Ladell Brothers, an NFCC employee and
horticulture teacher at the time of his
death in 1971. The Ladell Brothers Out-
door Nature Center at NFCC was named
in honor of Shelby Ladell Brothers.
"I am proud to have grown up in
Madison and to have graduated from
NFCC in 1984," Brothers said. "1I at-
tribute much of my success to NFCC
and am most grateful for the community
minded, caring faculty and staff ho
helped me and have helped man) other
rural students like me prepare for careers
or to pursue higher education," he said
"I am equally proud to represent Suwan-
nee County and the: Suwannee County'
School Board as %ue provide educational
opportunities for our constituents."

"I just wish you all
would get your act togeth-
er and we'll support you,
but make it fair for every-
body," he said.
Commissioner Jesse
Caruthers voted to accept
the 13 percent'hike, but
said he would have pre-
ferred only a 10 percent
increases.:!
..Caruthers noted that
with a 10 percent increase
the board would have had
to transfer money out of
reserves to balance the
budget. Board chairman
Douglas Udell objected to


such an approach.
"Are you suggesting us-
ing your reserve fund that
is already built up, that's
like any household using
their savings account to
supplement their living
expenses and it's going to
go broke," Udell said.
Commissioner Randy
Hatch also said that a 10
percent hike would be in-
adequate.
"I'm not going to sit up
here and tell these people
that the cost of doing busi-
ness has gone down, that a
10 percent increase is go-
ing to cover everything,
that is ridiculous, we're al-
ready tapping in, we al-
ready know the costs have


gone up," he said.
The rdte adopted at
Monday night's hearing
will remain in effect for
one year, at which time the
county commission can ad-
just the rate again.

4, and his father, Christo-
pher W. Howard, 32, sus-
tained lacerations when
the fish hit them. Chan-
dler also suffered a bro-
ken arm.
Chandler's mother, Lau-
ra Howard, 29, and broth-
er, Christopher, 7, were
also in the boat but were
uninjured during the en-
counter near the Dowling
Park boat ramp in Suwan-
nee County. The Howards
are Live Oak residents.
FWC officers investi-
gating the encounter said
a 3- to 4-foot sturgeon
jumped in front of the'
Howards' boat. The vessel
was on plane and travel-,
ing approximately 30
miles per hour. The fami-
ly was traveling about
two miles north of the
Dowling Park boat ramp.
"The sturgeon jumped
up, shattering the boat's
windshield," said Capt.
Roy Brown, with FWC
law enforcement. "Mr.
Howard was struck and
then Chandler got hit."
The sturgeon jumped
back into the river.
This strike is the most
northern encounter report-
ed to the FWC, Brown
said. There have been two
other encounters in 2008.
The first one occurred
May 23 near Branford,
when a man was slightly

Det. Justin Bates has been
conducting interviews at
the Department of Juvenile
Justice in Gainesville to

the crimes are related.
Most of the businesses
were broken into through a

Scarlet Fever commonly caused by Strep Throat
Children between the ages of 5 and 15 are most likely to be
affected by scarlet fever. Typical signs and symptoms of this
condition include an extensive rash, flushed face, sore throat, and
high fever. Streptococcus pyogenes is the bacteria responsible for
causing both strep throat and scarlet fever. This bacteria type is
contagious and may be transmitted through coughing, sneezing, or
touching objects an infected person has touched and then touching
their nose or mouth. Persons may carry the bacteria without
symptoms.
Antibiotics may be prescribed for persons who become infected.
Penicillin, amoxicillin (Amoxil, Trimox), and azithromycin
(Zithromax) are antibiotics sometimes prescribed. Other antibiotics
prescribed may include clarithromycin (Biaxin), clindamycin
(Cleocin), and cephalexin (Keflex). Other treatment measures
include using over-the-counter medications, with the approval of the
child's physician, and providing adequate fluids. Over-the-counter
medications, such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and acetaminophen
(Tylenol), may help to alleviate fever and discomfort. Children may
prevent scarlet fever infection through regular hand washing and
refraining from sharing drinking glasses or eating utensils.

jumped in his boat. The
second reported encounter
was July 4 near Rock
Bluff, when a sturgeon
juinped into a boat. No
one was injured except
for the fish.
Boaters can take mea-
sures to protect them-
selves while on the water.
"We recommend boaters
reduce their speed to re-
duce the risk of impact
and to give people more
time to react if they do en-
counter a jumping stur-
geon," Brown said. "Pay
attention to your surround-
ings. And always wear
your life jacket, even if
you're a good swimmer.
It's hard to swim if you're
unconscious."
Children 6 years old
and younger are required
to wear a life jacket while
on a vessel.
The Suwannee River
appears to support the
largest viable population
of Gulf sturgeon. Biolo-
gists estimate the popula-
tion at 6,500 to 7,500 fish,
each averaging approxi-
mately 40 pounds. Adult
fish spend eight to nine
months each year in the
river spawning and three
to four of the coolest
months in Gulf waters.
Sturgeon tend to congre-
gate in deeper and cooler
waters with moderate cur-
rents and sandy and rocky
bottoms.
Biologists are unsure


why sturgeon jump.
"Scientists are still at-
tempting to figure that
out," said Allen Martin,
regional freshwater fish-
eries biologist at Lake
City. "Some of the theo-
ries include that the fish
jump to communicate, or
it may be a dominance
display. We don't know
for sure."
These encounters are
not attacks, Martin said.
"I have seen these colli-
sions referred to as 'at-
tacks.' However, these
fish are in no way 'attack-
ing' when they jump.
They are simply doing
what they have been do-
ing for millions of years
... jumping. They aren't
targeting the boaters,"
Martin said.
However, Gulf sturgeon
can get quite big, exceed-
ing 8 feet and 200
pounds.
"They have five rows of
rock-hard 'scutes' along
their sides and back.
When sturgeon and
boaters collide, the results
can be devastating," Mar-
tin said.
Sturgeon are a protected
species and may not be
harvested.
"Sturgeon are protected
by state and federal law,
just like bald eagles, pan-
thers and sea turtles,"
Brown said.

sions, call 1-888-404-

So, what

would

you like

to know?

You've heard their stump
speeches (at The Last
Word or elsewhere), and
read, in the pages of this
newspaper, their responses
to some fairly detailed pol-
icy questions ("In their .
own words," Aug. 22).
Now it's time to hear the
candidates speak on issues
that matter to you.
Political candidates who
remain in contention for
local office will be invited
to field questions from
voters at a Suwannee De-
mocrat-sponsored town
hall forum, tentatively set
for mid-October.
Here's how it will work.
Starting in next week's De-
mocrat, and in every sub-
sequent edition until the
event, you'll find a form
on which you can pen a
question you'd like candi-
dates in any given race -
state representative, clerk
of court, superintendent of
schools, sheriff and county
commissioner (districts 3
and 5) to answer.
The Suwannee Democrat
editorial board will decide
in advance which ques-
tions will be asked. At the
event, our moderator will
direct your inquiries to the
candidates, who will be
hearing them for the first


time.
Date, time and location
will be announced soon.
This will be your best,
and last, chance to learn
what local office-seekers
stand for. Candidates, get
ready for your close-ups.

Sources: Michael Gutter, 352-392-1945,
ext. 228, msgutter@ufl.edu; Nayda Tor-
res, 352-392-1778, ext. 221,
nitorres@ufl.edu
To, help families struggling to make
ends meet, the University of Florida's In-
stitute of Food and Agricultural Sciences
has published a new bottom-line guide to
personal finances.
Titled "Managing in Tough Times," the
40-page booklet is available free at coun-
ty extension offices and online at
http://fycs.ifas.ufl.edu.
The booklet was created in response to
recent economic woes, said Nayda Torres,
a professor and chairwoman of UF's fam-
ily, youth and community sciences de-"
partment.
"Families are faced with making diffi-
cult choices as the cost of living contin-
ues to increase but their income does
not," Torres said.
Published in English and Spanish, the
booklet contains 18 chapters, addressing


topics from savings and teen employment
to stress and low-cost entertainment. Each
chapter was written by UF experts in the
subject.
But users will need to do more than
read the booklet, they'll need to take ac-
tion, said Michael Gutter, a family, youth
and community sciences assistant profes-
sor who led the project.
For example, one of the most important
steps in financial management is deter-
mining your net worth, which means tak-
ing stock of assets and liabilities, Gutter
said. The process may take a little time,
but it provides a road map for progress.
"We encourage people to assess their
situation right-now," he said. "But we
also want them to look ahead just a bit%"
That means finding ways to increase in-
come and reduce expenses, the keys to
building wealth. Much of the booklet is *
devoted to ideas on prioritizing debts and
handling them more efficiently, saving
money on basic needs, and finding over-
looked sources of income.
Unlike most UF extension publications,


"Managing in Tough Times" is the size of
an address book and printed on tough
card-stock pages held together with a ring
binder. It was designed this way to en-
courage users to carry it with them, Gut-
ter said.
Family, youth and community sciences
faculty had been discussing the idea of a
bottom-line financial project for some
time, he said. But the booklet was created
at the request of IFAS Dean for Extension
Larry Arrington, who was concerned
about recent events.
"As we looked around the state at the
pressures facing families as a result of en-
ergy costs, rising living expenses and the
number of families struggling with mort-
gages, we decided that a quick reaction
was necessary," Arrington said.
Department faculty and extension per-
sonnel are planning an education program
for Florida residents based on the booklet,
Gutter said. The program, emphasizing
discussion and practical activities, will be
available at extension offices beginning
later this year.

ASK DR. MANTOOTHI


Q: My daughter bites her fingernails
Incessantly. Can thle habit have dental
repercussions?
A: Nail-biting is a habit that has no up side.
In addition to the stubby, unsightly condition
it creates with fingers, the habit also can
cause oral health problems. That's because
any activity that involves using the teeth in
an unnatural way for an extended period
increases the likelihood of injury to the
temporomandibular joint, the joint in front of
either ear, where the jaws converge. You'll
hear that joint referred to as the TMJ. Over
time, the clenching action of biting one's
nails with stretch the jaw muscles. That
stretching will create an Imbalance in the
TMJ and that cad that n lead to pain.
If your daughter has developed this habit at
a very young age, she may also be heading
for a situation in which the pressure of the
biting can create a gap between her front
teeth. And, the type of individual who
develops a nail-biting habit Is often the type
of person who is prone to picking at her
gums. Some dentists and physicians
recommend coating nails and fingers with an
unpleasant tasting but non-toxic lotion or
pepper to discourage the habit. Talk with
your dentist about strategies for getting your
daughter to drop her habit. Otherwise, future
treatment may be needed either to straighten
teeth or address the TMJ problem.

FWC escorts Navy submarines.


Thursday marked the conclusion of a
first-of-its-kind mission in a U.S. port.
For the past 11 weeks, Waterborne Re-
sponse Teams deployed from law en-
forcement agencies throughout Florida to
assist the U.S. Coast Guard in protecting
Navy submarines leaving and entering
Mayport Naval Station in Jacksonville.
Teams included law enforcement officers
from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC).
Waterborne, Response Teams are part of
a statewide security plan, created to ad-
dress significant manmade and natural
disasters, provide escorts, dignitary pro-
tection, security and search-and-rescue.
In addition to FWC officers, they com-
prise officers from some of the Florida's
larger sheriff's' offices and police depart-
ments who possess maritime capabilities.
"Assets, such as manpower, boats and
aircraft from many different agencies
were used to escort Navy high-value as-
sets in and out of a Florida port on a dai-
ly basis," said Mark DuPont, the FWC's
chief intelligence and domestic security
officer, and primary planner for the event,
tagged Operation Sturgeon. "Using feder-
al, state, county and local resources on an
effort such as this has never been done
before anywhere in the country."
There are 41 seven-person Waterborne
Response Teams throughout the state,
trained and equipped to protect critical
infrastructure and high-value assets.
These include 14 major seaports, three


nuclear power plants situated on or near
major water ays and the thousandsof
ships that pl) the state's waters.
In support of the Coast Guard the pri-
mary agency responsible for the nation's
port security Waterborne Response
Teams responded outside their local re-
gions for the first time. since their cre-
ation as part of Florida's Regional Do-
mestic Security Task Forces.
"FWC Waterbome Response Teams,
our aviation units and the agency's off-.
shore vessel, the C.T. Randall, worked
with multi-agency teams from as far
away as Miami-Dade and Lee counties,"
DuPont said. "We tested and proved the
state's ability to move teams across the
state to support high-security operations,
and the Coast Guard and Navy know they
can rely on these teams." .
Coordination, communication and op-
erations were facilitated by FWC person-
nel.
"On behalf of the Navy and submarine
, forces, I want to express my deepest grat-
itude to the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission for coordinat-
ing this effort, and to each of the teams
that came from Okaloosa, Bay, Lee, Mia-
mi-Dade, Duval, and Nassau counties,"
said Cmdr. Doug Jordan, deputy director
for strategic forces and force protection
for the U.S. Navy Submarine Forces
Command. "This is something that we
will learn from and apply in future opera-
tions throughout the country."


Let the fun begin! Football season is
here. And, even though oysters are avail-
able year round, they seem to make their
biggest splash this time of year. Sucking
down a few oysters just seems to add piz-
zazz to the whole football excitement. It's
a good thing the harvests are abundant in
the United States. The total U.S. oyster,
harvest in 2006 was over 34.4 million
pounds. Florida ranked in the top four in
landings among the 18 oyster producing
states with almost 2.4 million pounds.
Oysters are wholesome and
nutritious. They are a low-calorie, low-
cholesterol source of protein. Oysters are
also an exceptional source of zinc, a min-
eral associated with strengthening the im-
mune system and a prime source of
omega-3, a fatty-acid linked to lowering
the risk of heart attack, breast cancer,
prostate cancer, and of stroke.
Although the majority of the population
can enjoy oysters anyway they want to
eat them, there are some people who
should not eat raw oysters. These individ-
uals are at risk due to existing medical
conditions such as diabetes, cancer, liver
and digestive problems and deficient im-
mune systems. The naturally occurring
Vibrio vulnificus bacteria in oysters can
make those individuals seriously ill. The
oyster industry is diligent in trying to. edu-
cate this at-risk population about Vibrio


vulnificus and the precautions they should
take.
The industry has sought to increase the
development and implementation of a
safer oyster through post-harvest treat-
ment to give consumers alternatives to
eating traditional raw oysters. The post-
harvest processes (PHP) eliminate or re-
duce the bacteria in oysters to non-de-
tectable levels. The PHP methods compa-
nies use varies. Flash freezing, hydrosta-
tic (water) pressure and cold shock are a
few of the processes. These processes
have little effect on the texture and color
of raw oysters
This new oyster product is relatively
new and acceptance in the market has
been gradual but encouraging. In Florida,
there are two companies that are currently
selling PHP product in the market. They
are Leavins' Seafood in Apalachicola and
Webb's Seafood in Youngstown. Other
companies are working towards the de-
velopment of their own bacteria free
products.
Chefs and consumers can get additional
information on oyster post-harvest pro-
cessing, cooking tips, recipes and proper
care and handling of oysters and other
shellfish by visiting the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices' Bureau of Seafood and Aquaculture
website at www.FL-Seafood.com.


Bronson urges consumers to follow food safety tips


September is National Food
Safety Education Month, and
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles Bronson is urging the
public to find out more about
safe food handling practices.
The Department's Division of
Food Safety protects the food
supply through permitting and
inspections of retail food estab-
lishments and lab testing food
products. But once consumers
have purchased the food it is up
to them to follow safe and prop-
er food handling practices. Food
borne illness is caused by bacte-
ria often undetectable by sight,
smell or taste.
"This campaign couldn't have
come at a more appropriate time
given the extended salmonella,
outbreak and a number of recent
food recalls," Bronson said.
"People need to take just a little
time to get the facts and follow


the recommended safety guide-
lines."
A recent survey conducted by
The Partnership for Food Safety
Information, a consortium of in-
dustry, state and federal govern-
ment food safety experts, indi-
cates 75 percent of respondents
believe food related illness is a
serious threat to their health. Yet
that same survey also shows
that only 15 percent consistently
use a food thermometer. Cook-
ing and storing food at the cor-
rect temperature prevents harm-
ful bacteria from making a fam-
ily sick.
"While the food industry and
government must step up their
food safety activities, signifi-
cant portions of food borne ill-
nesses are caused in the home
so consumers need to follow the
four most important facts of
food safety," Bronson said.
Clean Wash hands and


surfaces often. People need to
-wash their hands with soap for
at least 20 seconds before and
after handling food. They:.
should also wash cutting boards,
countertops and utensils with
hot soapy water before and after
preparing each food item.
Rinse fresh fruit and vegetables
under running tap water and rub
firm skin produce with. a veg-
etable brush.
Separate Cross contaniina-
tion can cause bacteria to spread
and consumers need to "think
safety" before they even leave
the grocery store. When shop-
ping, keep fresh produce sepa-
rated from household chemicals
and raw meat, poultry or
seafood. Keep fresh produce
separate from raw, meat, poultry
and seafood in the refrigerator
and it is best to use a different
cutting board for meats and
vegetables to avoid contamina-


tion
Cook It is important to use
a food thermometer to be sure
food is cooked to the proper
temperatures. Cook roasts and
steaks to a minimum of 145 de-
grees, poultry should have a
minimum internal temperature
of 165 degrees. Cook ground
meat to a minimum of 160 de-
grees and leftovers and
casseroles should have an inter-
nal temperature of 165 degrees.
Chill Bacteria spread
fastest at temperatures between
40 degrees and 140 degrees so
chilling food properly is an im-
portant food safety
practice. Chill leftovers within 2
hours and keep the fridge at 40
degrees or lower. Refrigerate or
freeze meat, poultry, eggs and
other perishables as soon as
possible after purchase. Left-
overs should be put in shallow
containers so the food will chill


more quickly, preventing bacte-
ria from growing.
It is also important to never
defrost food at room tempera-
ture. Food has to be kept at a
safe temperature during thaw-
ing. Consumers can defrost food
three ways: in the refrigerator,
in cold water and in the mi-
crowave.
Food safety is everyone's re-
sponsibility and following the
listed practices can greatly re-
duce the chance of a food borne
illness. Food safety information
can be found on the depart-
ment's website at
http://www.doacs.state.fl.us/ by
linking to the Division of Food
Safety. There is also information
on the Florida Department of
Health website at
http://www.doh.state.fl.us/ and

Education Web site at

'Take a Loved One

for a Checkup Day"

By Mary Ward
The Florida Department of Health and Suwannee
County Health Department are promoting Sept. 16,
as "Take a Loved One for a Checkup Day." The fo-
cus of the day is.to encourage individuals to take
charge of their health by visiting a healthcare
provider or by making an appointment for a friend,
neighbor or family member to do the same. Regular
visits to the doctor for checkups are valuable to peo-
ple of-all ages.
Here are some guidelines to go by
for receiving annual checkups:
Women ages 40 and over should have a m ammo-
gram every 1-2 years (women of all ages should per-
* form monthly breast exams)
A colonoscopy every 5 years once you reach age
50
Prostate Cancer screening for men ages 50-70
Visit your dentist twice a year for checkups
Blood pressure and weight
Blood glucose
ChQlesterol
These are the typical ages that you should receive
these regular checkups. However, if you are experi-
encing any sort of medical issue, or if you have a
family history of certain conditions, you should talk
with your healthcare provider about earlier checkups
and other preventative measures.
Prevention and early detection of potential health
care problems are two of the most important weapons
against fighting disease. Show someone how much
you care about their health by taking them for a
checkup. It is also a good time to begin taking charge
of your own wellbeing. Even though "Take a Loved
One for a Check Up Day" occurs only one day of the
year, any day is a good one to start making positive
changes to ensure good health in the future.
For more information on this event, please contact
the Suwannee County Health Department. If you
would like more information on Worksite Wellness,
please contact Mary Ward in the Healthy Communi-
ties, Healthy People program at the Suwannee Coun-
ty Health Department, 386-362-2708, ext. 259.

'Dogs trounce


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
The Bulldogs trampled the Hamilton
County Trojans 33-0 Friday night at
Langford Stadium in the 'Dogs' season
opener.
"The younger kids are getting better,
and Ye are looking forward to the rest
of the season," head coach Tommy
Chambers said.
Highlights of the game included 9 of
14 passing for quarterback David
Campbell, with 167 yards and two
touchdowns. Campbell led in rushing
with 114 yards on 13 carries with two
touchdowns.
Xavier Perry had 10 carries for 84
yards and scored one touchdown. The
game's leading receiver was Alex
Fountain, with four catches for 81
yards, including one touchdown.
Chambers said center Bryne Allen
and offensive linebacker Joe McMillan
both played well. I'
Chambers also noted Austin O'Con-
nor did well kicking. "The kicking
game was a lot better than was last
week," Chambers said.
"As far as settling down and playing
and not being nervous, we did a better
job than last week's game," Chambers
said.. "We expected to be nervous for the

have never played before."
For the defense Kyle Driskell had
five solo tackles with six assists, Alex
Falleck had one solo
tackle with 10 assists
and Nick Hurst had
four solo tackles with
five assists. All three had
a total yardage of 100


yards, 41 for rushing and 59 for passing.
Chambers said Alex Fountain had an
interception and a fumble recovery.
Suwannee took to the field with six


players out due to injury but cruised to
an, easy win. "We are getting healthier
everyday and every week as the season
goes along," Chambers said.


SPORTS COMMENTARY


They're grr-rrrreat!


Bulldog
Review
By Tom Daniels
The Suwannee Bulldogs and
Frosted Flakes had something
in common Friday night...


they were great. They had
three negative plays the whole
game and missed about two
assignments. A score of 33-0 is
something to brag.about.
Offense: David Campbell
had an outstanding game, as
did Xavier Perry. but ii was a
coming out for a few others.
Keith Cherry made two fine
catches and earned some
playing time. Alex Fountain
played well and was one of the
Bulldog ironmen, going both
ways and getting an
interception as well as a TD.
The line played a great game,
giving Campbell the time he
needed to throw two TDs as
well as complete another long
one. Perry showed his
quickness and took advantage

DIS begins major frontstretch

grandstand renovation project
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. Keeping with Daytona International
Speedway's motto of "Fans 'R' 1st At Daytona," "The World Cen-
ter of Racing" has embarked on a significant frontstretch grand-
stand renovation project. The project is currently under way and is
expected to be complete by the end of the year.
The renovation project will replace the lower grandstand seating
in the DePalma and Oldfield Grandstands (located near Turn 4) as
well as the Seagrave, Keech and Lockhart Grandstands (located
near Turn 1) with chair seats with arm rests. In addition, all risers
and walkways will be replaced with new aluminum. New and addi-
tional handicap ramps and stairs will provide access to seating as
well.
The grandstand renovations will also create new open areas un-
derneath the grandstands for additional concession/souvenir kiosks.
"These renovations will enhance the race fan's experience at
Daytona International Speedway," Track President Robin Braig
said. "We're very cognizant of our 'Fans 'R' 1st At Daytona' pro-
gram and we're always looking for new opportunities to make the
race fan's visit to 'The World Center of Racing' more memorable."
To purchase tickets for DIRECTV Speedweeks 2009 and the
51st annual Daytona 500, go online to http://www.racetickets.com
or call 1-800-PITSHOP.

Daily dove hunt permits go on sale Sept. 18


Daily dove hunt permits go on sale at 10

state, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) announced re-
cently.

gional offices and at MyFWC.com/hunting

The cost for the permit is $35, which en-
titles one adult and one .youth (under age

tween them.

Local wildlife habitat boasts ecological balance


The National Wildlife Federation of. Re-
ston, Va. has certified the property of Philippe
Boucard, located in Wellborn, as a wildlife
habitat.
As we enter the 21st century, natural places
(the plants and animals that inhabit them)
face ever-increasing pressure from human ac-
tivity. Few places left on Earth have not been
affected in some way by our actions. As a re-
sult, habitat loss is the number-one threat to
wildlife today.
By choosing what has now come to be
known as "conventional" landscaping op-
tions, ones dominated by lawn, ornamental
plants, and dependence on chemicals, .-pesti-
cides and supplemental watering, we have
disturbed the balance of the ecosystem and
banished the wildlife from the land we once.
shared.
We can, however, choose to create land-
scapes that help restore the ecological bal-
ance. We can choose to invite the wild plants
and animals back into the land and our lives.
The National Wildlife Federation began the
Backyard Wildlife Habitat program to recog-
nize wildlife enthusiasts for creating havens
for neighborhood wildlife in their very own
yards. They are listed in the National Wildlife


Federation's worldwide network of mini--
refuges. Because of the owner's conscien-
tious planning, landscaping and sustainable
gardening, wildlife may find quality habitat-
food, water, cover and places to raise their
young. Residents and daily visitors to the
Boucard's yard include: wrens, jays, finches,
woodpeckers, cardinals, American crows,
rock doves, white-winged doves, purple mar-
tins and common ground dove. A pair of Indi-
go Bunting make their presence known at
every visit to the bird feeders. Hummingbirds
usually come by several times a day to their
favorite plants. Seasonal visitors drop by
whenever they are in the area and use the
available nest boxes. Also on-site is, not a
birdbath, but an in-flight bird shower.
Several species of butterflies, especially
monarch, are pampered with host plants for
eggs/pupae, food plants for larvae and adults.
They interact with dragonflies, ladybugs and
other insects. Apples, peaches, pears, blueber-
ries, nectarines, grapes and plums share the
planting beds with firecrackers, brush bushes,
shrimp plants, many flowers and butterfly
bushes as well as tomato plants, zinnias, cos-
mos, indian blanket, angelonia, keep compa-
ny to parsley, dill, oregano and peppermint.


OUTTA' THE WOODS


Get your hunt on early

pull, back on a string


By Tony Young
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission

Summer's officially over
even though you can't tell
'cause it's still so hot and
sticky outside. We've fin-
ished our preseason scout-
ing and hung our tree
stands along %ell-traveled
deer trails, hopefully next
to a mature oak tree that'll
begin dropping acorns
soon. Finally the time of
year we've been waiting
for is here the beginning of football
season, and better yet, opening day of
hunting season, specifically archery.
Archery season provides a great oppor-
tunity to take a trophy whitetail and is
arguably one of the best times to do so,
along with hunting the rut. If you're!
stealthy enough and have done your
homework, you've got a good chance of
having a nice one walk out in front of
you.
Florida's divided into three hunting
zones, and you'll need to know which
zone you'll be hunting in, because sea-
son dates vary.
Hunting season comes in first in the
South Hunting Zone, where archery sea-
son begins Sept. 6 and ends Oct. 5. Next
up is the Central Zone, which runs Sept.
20 Oct. 19. In the Northwest Hunting
Zone, archery season begins Oct. 18 and


. ends Nov. 16.
To hunt during archery
season, you'll need a
.Florida hunting license
and an archery permit.
If you're a Florida resi-
dent, a hunting license
costs $17. Nonresidents
may pay $46,50 for a 10-
day license.or $151.50 for
12 months. The archery
permit costs $5 for in-state
and out-of-staters.
Anyone planning to
hunt one of Florida's
many wildlife manage-
ment areas (WIylAs) must purchase a
management area permit for $26.50.
All of these licenses and permits are
available at county tax collectors' of-
fices, retail outlets that sell hunting and
fishing supplies, or by calling toll-free 1-
888-HUNT-FLORIDA or clicking ,
www.wildlifelicense.com
.
The most common game to take during
archery season are deer and. wild hog.
During this period, deer of either sex are
legal game, regardless of antler size (ex-
cept for spotted fawns). .The daily bag
limit on deer is two. Bag limits on
WMAs can differ, so consult the area's
brochure first.
Wild hogs are considered livestock on
private lands and with landowner per-
mission.- can be hunted year-round with
no bag or size limits. On most WMAs,


there's no bag or size limits, and hogs
are legal to take during any hunting sea-
son except spring turkey. On a few
WMAs, limits do apply, so again check
the area brochure.
In addition to hunting big game, it's
also legal to shoot gobblers and bearded
turkeys during archery season. Only one
can be taken per day and there's a two-
bird fall-season limit. It's against the
law to hunt turkeys in Holmes County
during this period, and you can't shoot
turkeys while they'reon the rpost, over
bait, when you're within 100 yards,of a
game-feeding station when bait is pre-
sent or with the aid of recorded turkey
calls.
If you're quite the marksman, gray
squirrel, quail and.rabbit are three other
species legal to take during archery sea-
son, and there's a daily bag limit of 12
for each.
Only bows may be used during
archery season no crossbows allowed,
except for hunters.with a disabled cross-
bow permit. Bows must have a mini-
mum draw weight of 35 pounds, and
hand-held releases, are permitted. For

hunting deer, hog and turkey, broadheads
must have at.least two sharpened edges
with a minimum width of 7/8 inch.
Legal shooting hours are a half-hour
before sunrise to a half-hour after
sunset. Except for turkeys, you're per-
mitted to take resident game over corn or
soybeans on private land. It's against the
law to use such bait on WMAs.
,Some things you can't do during
archery season include possessing
firearms, using explosive or drug-inject-
ing airo~ ,% using bows equippedwith-
;electronic computational or laser sights
and possessing a bow on an airboat in'
Miami-Dade County.
You can't use dogs to hunt deer or
hogs during archery season, but you can
use bird dogs if quail hunting. Other-
wise, the only time you can have a dog
in the woods while hunting is when it's
on a leash and you're using it to trail
. wounded game.
Here's hoping all your preparation and
persistence pays off and wishing you
luck on taking that monster buck. As al-
ways, have fun, hunt safely and ethically,
and we'll see you in the woods!

They're grrrrrreat!


Bulldog


Review

By Tom Daniels


Continued From Page 1B

of every crease they gave
him.
Defense: When you
throw a shutout you did
something right. Very
rarely was someone out of
position and players
trusted their keys, stayed
home and did the job. The
linebackers were
exceptional and #54
Falleck was all over the
field along with #14
Hurst. Perry and Fountain,
who excelled on offense,
did just as Wvell on defense.
Little cheeseburger Josh
Hannah had his best
varsity game to date. The
'Dogs got caught napping
a few times on the pass but
were absolute run


stoppers.
Specials: What a
difference a week makes.
We covered the kickoffs.
O'Connor kicked two
field goals and Prevatt
kicked off a few times and
had a good punt as well.
The return men didn't get
the opportunities they ,
should have and did get a
bit overanxious. I feel it is
only a matter of time till
they break one.
This week it is off to
Gadsden County to face a
speedy Jaguar team. The
'Dogs need to contain that
speed and play error free
offense to be competitive.
This is a non-district game
but it should give us a clue
as to how we will match
up with Raines, another
speed team in the district.
The 'Dogs are off for a
week after this game and
you can still buy season
tickets at the high school.
Go 'Dogs!


Attention all club cars who race


Orlando SpeedWorld on Saturdays


Orlando, FL Effective immediately ALL Saturday
night classes will be trophy only runs!
We have been talking about this in our driver's meet-
ings and with each other. The way that the economy is
suffering right now we had no choice..well we had an-
other choice but I did not want to close the show...but to
pit this into effect. There was talk of leasing the track


out on Saturday nights but the negotiations fell through
so a decision had to be made ASAP! This is the choice
that was made. TO help defray the cost of no payout,
we are lowering the back gate to $20.
We hope this does not cause anyone a major hardship
but it was a decision of this or close.
Thank you for your understanding.


FWC to score antlers in Live Oak


Officers from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) will score
deer antlers Oct. 4 in Live
Oak.
The annual scoring will be-
gin at 10 a.m. and will contin-
ue until all scoring is complet-
ed. The event will be at R & R
Tractor Parts and Hunting
Supplies, 944 N. Ohio Ave.
Hunters who have taken a
buck can have the antlers
scored to compare with other
Florida deer taken in.previous
seasons. The deer must have
been taken in Florida by fair-
* chase methods.
Antlers scoring 100 points
or more qualify for the Florida


Buck Registry, and the owner
will receive a certificate suit-
able for framing.
The Florida Buck Registry
ing/buckregistry/default.htm>
was established in 1982 to pro-
vide hunters with a record of
the number and quality of
white-tailed deer taken in
Florida and to give recognition
to Florida hunters. The mini-
mum antler score necessary to
qualify is 100 Boone-and-
Crockett inches for typical
antlers and 125 for non-typical
.antlers.
For more information, call R
& R Tractor Parts and Hunting
Supplies at 386-362-2651.

Powered Out
Boating is one of the fastest growing
sport and recreational activities. The
National Sporting Goods Association
estimates over 29.million people spend
time on their motorboats. While many
of them own a boat, others have found
different ways to enjoy the sport.
According to a survey sponsored by the
US Coast Guard, over 50% of these
people own or share their boat, 16%
rent-a boat, 13% borrow a boat and
19% are able to hitch a ride with a boat
owner. Looks like there is more than
_._ one way to get out on the water.
- Safety First
For many people power boating seems
like an easy sport to master. However
the "rules of the road" are much different
on the water and diligence is required.
SThe U.S. Coast Guard reports that over
700 people die each year and over 3,400
more are injured from unsafe boating
practices. Nearly 59% of all recreational
boating injuries are the result of colli-
sions. 'More surprising is that 65% of
boat operators have never taken a boat-
* ing safety course and only about 2%
have taken a course in the last year.

Christened
Most weekend'boaters have no
idea what they are doing at a boat
launch. One guy, who must have
been new to launching, entered
through the exit and headed down the
ramp the wrong way. When the front
of his car was facing the water, he
realized his mistake. However
instead of pressing his brakes, he
accidentally hit the gas and drove
straight into the water, boat and all.
Two of us on shore rushed to make
sure he was okay and helped him to
'dry land. While I was sympathetic to
his tragedy, the other guy joked about
the event.
"You know," he said handing him a
towel, "it's much easier to launch
your boat if you back down the
ramp!' ,

When you're taking care of a family, it can be easy to'forget to take care of yourself. But if
you don't, you're putting yourself at risk for heart disease.
Taking care of yourself doesn't have to involve a complete lifestyle makeover. It starts
with small choices you make every day, like what you eat. Nutrition is important, especially
because heart disease is women's number one killer. It's worth making some little changes
that can have a big impact.
Make Good Food Choices
It's a myth that healthy food doesn't taste good you can find food both healthy and
delicious. If you make healthy eating a habit, you'll gain a powerful tool to help you control
your weight, reduce elevated cholesterol and lower high blood pressure, all of which are risk
factors for heart attack and stroke. Set the stage for success:
Learn the meaning of healthy eating it's your diet over time that counts. Emphasize
fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy products, lean meat, poultry and fish.
Pay close attention to the type of fat in your food avoid trans fat and aim for foods that
are low in total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol.
Make grocery shopping quick and easy. Use the American Heart Association's heart-
check mark as an easy way to find foods, that have been screened and verified to be low in
saturated fat and cholesterol. Visit heartcheckmark.org to create your personalized, heart-
healthy list before you go to the store. Print it for future use, or access it from your Web-
enabled mobile phone or PDA at mylist.heartcheckmark.org.
Enjoy a large glass of ice water, hot tea or other calorie-free beverage, instead of a
sugary soda. Garnish with a twist of lemon or lime.
Divide a dish prepared at home into portions to eat throughout the rest of the week, or
freeze for another time.
Eat with other people. You may eat less when others are around.
Try a piece of fruit before eating a meal it may help you curb your appetite
Know your snack "triggers" and plan ahead. Fight the urge for high-calorie/high-
saturated-fat and trans fat foods by grabbing pre-cut carrots, celery and other raw-vegetables.
Here are some other suggestions from the American Heart Association to help you take
care of your heart.
Give yourself the gift of health for. your birthday make an appointment for a checkup.
and talk with your doctor about how you can reduce your risk for heart disease.
Get off the couch. Walk briskly for at least 30 minutes five days a week. Don't have 30
minutes? Break your walking into three 10-minute segments.
Quit smoking. It isn't easy, but it is possible. Check with your doctor and others in your
community for smoking cessation programs. It may take several attempts to quit so don't
give up if you fail the first, fifth or tenth
time. Keep trying. Others have quit; so can
you! W

your risk for heart disease, visit

how to survive and thrive


with

FAMILY FEATURES

N ew moms know taking care of one baby is hard work. But what about twins or triplets? How
can you manage two (or more). babies.vith only two hands? Is it possible to not just survive the
daily frenzy of feedings, diaperings and tears, but to thrive?
There are more multiples than ever these days. The multiples birth rate has risen steadily over the last two
decades, and the trend isn't slowing. By 2010, it's estimated that there will be 1.3 million sets of twins in
America.
When Christina Boyle and Cathleen Stahl discovered they were both having twins, they found out that there
were surprisingly few resources geared toward parenting multiples.
"No one understands what a mom of multiples goes through better than other moms of twins," said Boyle.
"But even with the twin birth rate soaring, it can be hard to find experts who get it."
So they put their heads together, consulted pediatricians and surveyed hundreds of moms of multiples and
put their tips together.in a new book, "'Twin Set" (Three Rivers Press, 2008).
"Both of us have older 'singleton' children so we've seen first-hand how raising our own twin sets is
markedly different, but at the same time, most of the tips in our book are actually good for all moms, not
just moms of multiples. Twins provide a great road test for products and
techniques if it wdrks well with two, then it will be even better ...
for one!"
With that in mind, the authors created a resource that offers ideas,
"'real world" advice, support, and laughs, covering everything from .
feeding to diapering to bonding. In addition to the book, they are
also partnering with Pampers to offer parenting tips and prod cts
at Pampers.com.

Some basic advice for moms of multiples?
Establishing a routine is essential! Having a routine in place
gives you some semblance of control and it's a huge sanity saver.
You may need to do things at unusual times, such as giving baby
twins their baths in the middle of the day, rather than at'night-
time. As long as it works for your family dynamic, go for it. '
Do things that make life easier. There is no shame in
ordering groceries online and having them delivered, or in
pulling clean laundry off the top of the laundry basket and
wearing it without folding it and putting it away.
Get rid of the guilt. All moms of twins feel overwhelmed
at some point. No matter how much help you have, how
supportive your partner is or how much you prepare for the
challenge, there will be days when you feel you cannot give
enough to each child. It's normal to feel guilty, but you're
probably doing a better job than you realize.

The blessings and the challenges of multiples are unique, and
these parents need all the help they can get. Having some strategies .
in place and the right tools on hand can make it a little easier to go
beyond merely surviving to truly thriving.
For more tips,,information on "Twin Set,;' and special offers for
moms of twins, visit Pampers.com/twins. i' .


One of the many.challenges of multiples
is dealing with diapers.
Boyle and Stahl say that they were stunned by how many diapers they used in a
24-hour period. They offer some tips on eliminating some diapering frustrations
and making the job a little more efficient.
* Take advantage of technological advances in the baby care field.
"New products like Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive diapers," say the authors,
"make it easy to know exactly when the baby needs to be changed. Some-
times it's hard to tell why twins are upset if they're crying simultaneously,
and it could be for different reasons. The indicator line on the outside of the
diaper turns from yellow to blue when the baby is wet so it removes .the
guesswork."
Create multiple diaper-changing
.stations. Sixty three percent of the
moms surveyed for the book said that
r settingg up more than one diaper-chang-k
ing station at home was a top mommy
secret. Put stations wherever it makes
the most sense for you.
n Assembly lines. With small babies,
the authors recommend the assembly-
line approach. If the babies are fed at or
around the same time, burp as needed,
play with each one a little bit, then
change one by one. "You'll quickly
figure out who should get changed first
(we say go for the messier, stinkier or
crankier one)."
