SStaff
A house fire claimed the life
of a Suwannee County woman
early Saturday. Joy Strickland,
63, of 13356 90th Circle, died
after reentering her burning
home to retrieve her purse, said
Ron Colvin of the Suwannee
County Sheriff's Office. She
had already rescued her dis-
abled brother from the blaze.
The alarm was called in at 5
a.m. when a neighbor saw the
brother, Sam Brantley, lying on
the ground near the burning
home and calling for his sister.
Upon arrival, firefighters


found the home fully involved,
the roof having mostly col-
lapsed, reports indicate.
Strickland's body was found
in a hallway, said Public Safety
Director Charlie Conner.

fire marshal, sheriff's investiga-

County sets budget at $55,138,290


$3.7 million jump
over last year
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
The Suwannee County Board of County Commission-
ers adopted the final budget and millage rate for the
2008-09 fiscal year at a public hearing Sept. 16 by a vote


of 4-1, with commissioner Randy Hatch dissenting.
The board adopted a budget of $55,138.290. an in-
crease of $3,779,452, or 7.3 percent, from the 2007-08
fiscal year.
The commissioners adopted a taxation rate of 8 mills,
which is well below the rolled back rate of 9.1812 mills.
The rolled back rate is the village rate required to gen-
erate the same amount of revenue as last year.
The rate of 8 mills is .0904 mills higher than that set
for the 2007-08 fiscal year.

A. Contouring is a process in.which your
dentist sculpts, a tooth's enamel, for
either a cosmetic or functional purpose.
If the purpose of the contouring is
cosmetic, simply to improve the look of
your smile, it's called aesthetic
contouring. A common application of
aesthetic contouring is on the canines -
eye teeth -.when they may appear too
long. Rounding their edges can make
them look more proportional to the teith
around them. A common functional
purpose would be to improve a patient's
it, shaving off enough enamel to allow
teeth to meet as they should when
chewing and eating. That process is
called occlusal equilibration, meaning
"making the bite even."
lIn.c:re..r ire goal, contouring, or
sculpting, is a painless procedure and
causes no harm to the teeth. And while
the amount of enamel removed is
minuscule, the results, in terms of either
appearance or function, can be dramatic.
In some cases; contouring can be a
considerably .cheaper alternative to
orthodontic work. Talk with your dentist
about contouring and about other forms
of cosmetic dentistry that may be: right
for you.

ington, D.C. Pierce plans on attending

tright of Live Oak. Boatright has a 4.0
grade point average and is an active
member of FFA, president of sopho-
more class, member of Student Govern-
ment, BETA Club, Washington Leader-

OPINION


A food fight


among politicians


By Dwain Walden
What if a food
fight broke out in
the U.S. Capitol > :
dining room? Imag- I
ine Democrats and
Republicans throw-
ing egg salad sand-
wiches and pomegranate pud-
ding at each other. Someone
yells "incoming" and a barrage
of black olives pelt retreating
hairlines and super egos.
Oops! Just had a flashback
to high school. We didn't know
then that black olives had any
other purpose. We did know
that they were part.of the '
USDA commodities program,
and hundreds of gallon cans of
them were shipped to our
school. Spam also got shipped
in by the truckloads. We saved
the Spam to bait our trot lines.
SI think you could hold an' eintp-
ty Spam.can to your ear and
hear tanks and cannon fire
from the Korean War.
Of course a food fight
wouldn't break out among our
congressmen. They are really
all friends. But, a food fight of
sorts has broken out in the
government halls of Thailand.
It seems the Thai leader was
forced to resign because he ap-
peared on a TV cooking show.
They have a rule that you can't
be involved in private business
and run the government. We
might name some Georgia
government leaders who had
better be glad that the Thais
have not tried to force their
version of democracy on us.
Prime Minister Samak Sun-
daravej was ousted by the
Constitutional Court.. His cabi-
net also must resign. Mr. Sun-
darayej, who had hosted a
cooking show prior to his elec-'
tion, argued that he only ap-
peared as a guest on the show
following his election and that
he did not get paid except for
Shis transportation and the in-
gredients he used in cooking.
Apparently there's a lot of
animosity, bickering and mud-
slinging going on in the Thai
democracy. Go figure.
Personally, I think it's kind
of harsh to kick the guy out
because he might have been
demonstrating how to prepare


brisket of water buffalo. For
'those who don't know what
brisket is, it's the hangy-
down part under a cow's
neck. So now I wonder just
how many people will nev-
er eat brisket again after
having learned this. You've
been eating cow neck.
But rules are rules, and he
should have known not to
confuse food for the stomach
with "food for thought." I
guess that's kind of like our
separation of church and state.
For them, it's separation of
government and steaks.
I don't think there would be
a constitutional challenge if
President Bush were to be a
guest on a cooking show and
demonstrated how to make
Texas chill. We might even be
impressed.:Of courselwe al- '
Ready know that he can roast
an Iraq of lamb.
SI'm sure someone would
suggest that the opposing par-
ty of Sundaravej's was just nit-
picking. I mean it's-not like he
did questionable land deals
nor that he propositioned a
Thai agent in the Bangkok air-
port.
Some pose that Sundaravej's
departure allows him to leave
and save face because more
stinging challenges might
have been forthcoming. I'm
assuming that he can now go
back to hosting a cooking
show where the debates might
be no more heavier than
whether it should be oil and
vinegar dressing or blue
cheese. I prefer blue cheese.
I'm sure if this was happen-
ing in the United States, the
late night comedians would
run the gamut of one-liners.
Jay Leno and David Letterman
could feed for two weeks off
such a morsel.
"Mr. Prime Minister; you're
done."
"Hey Samak, your goose is
cooked."
And there would be one pre-
vailing headline: "Court filets
Sundaravej's career."

At a recent meeting of the county volun-

one volunteer unit, Station 42 in O'Brien, -
had spent more than $7,000 in a three-
month period at local building supply out-
lets. Many of the expenditures appear not to-
have been authorized in advance, in writing,
by then-Public Safety Director Scott Racow,
as county rules require. And some of the
purchases including a $1,059 concrete saw
that later went missing seem dubious in
their own right. :
The county's been reimbursed for the saw,
and current Public Safety Director Charlie
Conner has said he'll try to return some of
the other questionable items for refunds.
We're confident that Conner will ably
clean up a mess that wasn't of his making
and that he'll do what's in his power to pre-
vent it from happening again. A stricter pur-
chasing policy just put into place will help.
Still, questions remain.
First, just how much public money has
Station 42 spent in recent months or years?
Roughly three months' worth has been ac-
counted for. We'd like a total. And not just
for Station 42. It's our understanding that
county purchasing policy has been ignored
by other volunteer units as well.
Second, what did any additional funds,
beyond the $7,000 already accounted for, go
toward? The avowed aim of upgrading Sta-


tion 42 was to convert it from a traditional
volunteer station to a fully manned, round-
the-clock facility. We applaud the goal and
admire the dedication of the unpaid fire-
fighters who spent many a night there, sav-
ing precious minutes that would have been
lost in transit during an emergency. Still,
we'd like to know if there are any more
$1,000 saws out there that we don't know
about.
Finally and perhaps most importantly -
what was Scott Racow's role in all of this?
Racow, on whose watch much of the ques-
tionable spending seems to have occurred,
has been painted by some as a casual man-
ager who wasn't much for protocol. Verbal
permission would do, we're told, when.writ-
ten approval for purchases was required.
In recent days, however, we've learned
from a number of sources that Racow, too,
had long been concerned with spending
habits at Station 42 and elsewhere. Some-
thing doesn't quite add up here.
A closer look countywide, not just at
Station 42 is in order. We call upon the
county commission, pursuant to its power
under state law, to look into this matter and
give us some answers.
For more on the matter under discussion
here, see "Tempers flare atfire board," in

Hiring, part I: Background checks


By Karen Harned
When it comes to background checks;
employers should be aware of the rea-
sons for performing a background check,
what basic information to request, and,
;what legal boundaries exist to protect an
employee's privacy.
Why Conduct A Background
Check?


Karen H
Karen Ha


Federal and state law: Employers are legally
required to conduct background checks for cer-
tain jobs. Depending on your company's indus-
try, you may need to conduct background
checks aid may be prevented by statute from
hiring employees convicted of particularoffens-
es.
For instance, almost every state requires a
background check for anyone who works with
children or in a healthcare facility. NFIB mem-
ber Beth Clemons of Clemons Bus Lines, a
small school bus business in Minnesota, says,
"Running a background check is about protect-
ing our clients, which in our case, are kids. We
Make sure that who we hire is who they say
they are."
Prevent Negligent Hiring Lawsuits: Conduct-
ing background checks can prevent negligent
hiring lawsuits. Most states recognize the tort of
negligent hiring, where employers are held li-
able for hiring an employee whose actions harm
someone else.
False or Inflated Information: Conducting
background checks allows employers to confirm
the accuracy of information in a prospective
S.emiployee's job application. Replacing an unsat-
isfactory employee or providing additional
training is more expensive than the cost of a
Background check. A recent study showed that
almost half of all job applicants submitted inac-
curate information to their potential employer.
Do it Yourself or Outsource.the Checks?
An employer may personally conduct a back-
Sground chedk, but often the more convenient
approach, is to hire an outside agency such as a
background check vendor, private investigator,
or credit agency to conduct a background
check. Always check that the outside company
complies with the Fair Credit Reporting Act
(FCRA), the federal law that regulates the ac-
quisition and use of background information for
employment purposes.
Employers have a range of information that is
accessible, but workers have certain privacy
rights that they can enforce by suing you if you
pry too deeply. Failure to comply with the
FCRA can subject an employer to damages, in-
cluding punitive damage costs and attorneys'
fees., If an outside agency is used, you must do
the following to comply with FCRA:
Give notice to the applicant and obtain writ-
ten permission for the background check in a
separate document
Provide specific notice if the report will in-
clude interviews with others
Give advance notice of any adverse employ-


meant decision and present the applicant
with a copy of the background check
upon taking an adverse action
Give notice of rights and procedures to
dispute inaccurate or incomplete infoima-
tiori : i
What Records Should You Check?
earned Always be sure to check your state's
laws on background checks since the type
of information you are eligible to obtain and use
varies by state. The following is a partial list of
information and some of the limitations to con-
sider in a background check.
School records: Keep in mind, most schools
will not release records without the consent of
the student, and some schools will only release
records directly to the student.
Credit reports: An employee's written consent
is required for a credit report. Many employers
routinely include a request for such consent in
their employment applications.
Driving records: Always check the driving
record of any employee whose job requires
large amounts of driving (like delivery persons
or bus drivers). These records are available,.
sometimes for a small fee, from the state's mo-
tor vehicles department.
Bankruptcies: Federal law prohibits employ-
ers from discriminating against applicants be-
cause they have filed for bankruptcy. This
means you cannot decide notto hire someone
solely because he or she has declared bankrupt-
cy in the past.
Criminal records: Some states prohibit em-
ployers from asking about arrests or certain
convictions that occurred well in the past, Other
states allow employers to consider convictions
only if the crimes are relevant to the job. Be-
cause of this variation from state to state, you
should consult with a lawyer before digging
into an applicant's criminal past.
Workers' compensation records: An employer
may consider information contained in the pub-
lic record from a workers' compensation appeal
in making a job decision only if the applicant's
injury might interfere with his or her ability to
perform required duties.
Military service records: Members of the
armed forces have a right to privacy in their ser-
vice records, which may be released only under
limited circumstances. However, the military
may disclose name, rank, salary, duty assign-
ments, awards, and duty status without the
member's consent.
This summary is by no means exhaustive of
all background check requirements. All employ-
ers are advised to check their, state's laws with
legal counsel for conducting proper background
checks, ultimately curbing costs and avoiding
liability.

Raynaud's Disease Occurs During Cold Temperatures
Raynaud's disease occurs when the body reacts abnormally to cold
temperatures or stress, resulting in cold sensations in the hands and
feet. The body naturally decreases blood supply to the extremities
during exposure to cold temperatures in order to maintain the core
body temperature. A person who develops Raynaud's experiences an
increase in this response. Vasospasm, or a constriction of blood
vessels, occurs in the arteries of the fingers and toes and leads to
decreased blood flow during an attack. Emotional stress also may
induce a Raynaud's attack. Women, as well as persons living in
colder climates, are more likely to be affected by this condition.
Although skin color may change with an attack, altered skin
appearance is temporary.
Although mild symptoms of Raynaud's may be alleviated through
preventive measures, prescription medications are available for
more severe symptoms. Calcium channel blockers, such as
nifedipine (Adalat, Procardia) and amlodipine (Norvasc), work to
open up blood vessels'and increase circulation to the hands and feet.'
Alpha blockers, such as prazosin (Minipress) and doxazosin
(Cardura), may be prescribed. This last group of medications work
to reduce constriction of blood vessels.

Towering puppets sing, dance into children's hearts


NFCC invites area K-3rd grades to Children's Theater Nov. 4


Make reservations now; seating is limited
The North Florida Community College (NFCC) Chil-
dren's Theater invites the public to a giant puppet musi-
cal of "Puss in Boots" by Bits 'N Pieces Puppet Theatre
on Tuesday, Nov. 4 at Vn H'. Priest Auditorium, on the
NFCC campus in Madison. This larger-than-life musi-
cal boasts a mix of jumbo nine-foot-tall body puppets,
costumed characters, traditional puppetry and children
from the audience. The play lasts approximately one
hour and is appropriate for children up to age 10 or
grades kindergarten through third.
Two performances are being offered, one at 9:30 a.m.
and one at 11 a.m. Reservations are require$ and being
accepted now; seating is limited. Area schools, home
schools, parents and members of the community should
call 850-973-1653 or email ArtistSeries@nfcc.edu to
make reservations. Admission is $2. Study guides are
available.
Bits 'N Pieces has performed at NFCC for the past
several years to rave reviews from children and educa-
tors. "It is rare that children can attend something of
this magnitude so close to their school," said one patron
from last year's Bits 'N Pieces show.
In this original adaptation of "The Master Cat," one
of the fairy tales collected by French storyteller Charles
Perrault in The Mother Goose Tales in 1697, "Puss in


Boots" plots to change young Nat the Miller's son from
a paw-per to an aristo-cat. The magical talking cat
learns honesty is the best policy and good deeds are re-
warded, as he helps Nat rescue the kidnapped Princess
Penny Candy from a wicked ogre and they all are
purr-fectly happy ever after.
Bits 'N Pieces Theatre has been creating original mu-
sical productions adapted from classic children's litera-
ture for more than 25 years. Headquartered in Tampa,
the giant puppets ensemble spends most of the year on
national tour while its classic hand puppets and mari-
onettes perform year-round at Puppetworld, Tampa.
Bits 'N Pieces' achievements earned it the Atlanta
Committee for the Olympic Games' Cultural
Olympiad's Regional Designation Award for Excellence
and Innovation in the Arts as well as the Arts Council
of Hillsborough County's Award for Excellence in Arts
Education. Most recently the Florida Theatre Confer-
ence presented Director Jerry Bickel its Distinguished
Career Award in Children's/Youth Theatre.
Reserve.your seats for the Nov. 4 Bits 'N Pieces per-
formance at NFCC. Call 850-973-1653 or email Artist-
Series@nfcc.edu. The performance is sponsored in part
by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division
of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Arts Council, and the
National Endowment for the Arts.

Senterfitt


Continued From Page 5A

In 1967 Senterfitt was
named by the Florida
Wildlife Federation Gover-
nor's Award as the out-
standing conservationist
for his leadership in guid-
ing farmers and ranchers in
combating and controlling
wind erosion with legume
cover crops, strip cropping,
mulch tillage and planting
wind breaks.
While serving as USDA-
SDS district conservation-
ist for Duval, Nassau and
'Clay Counties, Senterfitt
was instrumental in devel-
oping outstanding conser-
vation information and ed-,
ucation programs with
WJXT-TV, WJCT-TV and
in the school systems. Sen-
terfitt was recognized by
the USDA for his efforts
with this project.
As president of the
Suwannee River Resource
Conservation and Develop-
ment (RC&D) Council,
Senterfitt was instrumental
in helping the seven county
boards of directors recover
from near deactivation to
becoming one of the most
active RC&D councils in
Florida. Senterfitt provided
guidance and leadership
for attainment of grant
funding in the amount of
$329,000 for no-till pro-
ject. In addition he helped
with development of the
Spirit of the Suwannee, a
$1.25 million water based


recreation facility that
since its establishment has
become a jewel for Suwai-
nee County.
Senterfitt was instrumen-
tal in obtaining funding
from the county fora full-

The Florida Chapter Con-

outstanding conservation
supervisor while serving as
area l vice-president of
the FACD 1990-1992.
In 1991 while serving as
chairman of the SRSWCD
Senterfitt led the district to
co-sponsor a $3.5 million
water quality management
plan funded by the Florida
Department of Environ-
mental Protection. This led
to $10 million middle
Suwannee River Watershed
Project -that provided cost-
share for water quality
management plans for nu-
merous dairy and poultry
farmers throughout the
middle Suwannee River
area basin. This project
provided cost-share assis-
tance for 43 dairies, and 118
poultry producers to devel-
op watei quality conserva-
,tion plans that prevented
;**Mailil --- -Ialilli


contamination of the Flori-
da aquifer, the primary
source of drinking water
for Suwanne and surround-
ing counties. The project
helped farmers with man-
agement of approximately
1,402 tons of nitrates and
22,946 tons of animal
waste annually. The Mid-
dle River Suwannee River
Area Project has been re-
ferred to as a model for wa-
ter quality management.
Senterfitt's leadership was
paramount to this project.
Presently Senterfitt is ad-
ministering a University of
Florida Foundation En-
dowment Scholarship for
the Suwannee County Con-
servation District. This en-
dowment scholarship was
set up in memory of Col.
J.C. Copeland, and was de-
veloped with the College
of Agriculture and Life
Sciences. This scholarship
provides aid for two
Suwannee County students
annually attending Univer-
sity of Florida.
Senterfitt has provided
great leadership and
knowledge in the arena of
conservation. his efforts to-
ward conserving Florida's
natural resources have led
to numerous distinguished
awards by his peers an var-
ious organizations. His two
most cherished awards are
his honorary FFA member-
ship awards from Williston

Bronson commits forestry resources to assist Texas


Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced recent-
ly that the Division of
Forestry will be sending
one of its incident manage-
ment teams to Texas to as-
sist with post Hurricane Ike
recovery work. Texas has
requested Florida's assis-
tance through the Emer-
gency Management Assis-
tance Compact (EMAC).
"Texas has sent many re-
sources to Florida to help
with disasters in our state,"
Bronson said, "and we're
happy to be able to help
Texans during their time of
need. Our presence will
take the burden off their lo-
cal resources and allow
then to take care of their
own families. Florida has


always maintained strong
mutual aid partnerships re-
gionally and nationally."
Florida maintains four
type 1 interagency incident
management teams com-
prised of about 35 persons
each. The objective of each
team is to provide manage-
ment of logistical, fiscal,
planning, operational, safe-
ty, and community issues
related to all types of disas-
ter situations. When send-
ing manpower and.equip-
ment to assist another state,
Florida is reimbursed for
the cost, insuring that no
Florida taxpayer has to pay
for another state's disasters.
"Each of our teams is
highly trained and experi-
enced. They are staffed by


a dedicated group of Divi-
sion of Forestry employees
and other emergency re-
sponse personnel who are
ready to go at a moment's
notice," Bronson said. "As-
sembling interagency re-
sources quickly highlights
the great partnerships we
have established with our
cooperators."
Among duties the teams
are designed to handle are
providing emergency sup-
plies to storm victims such
as food, ice and water; co-
ordinating planning and
support for search and res-
cue operations; and assist-
ing in road clearing, avia-
tion support and other
emergency-response activi-
ties.-


More than 400,000 Flori-
da seniors and other low-
income residents have just
four weeks left to claim
their share of almost
$121.8 million in this
year's federal stimulus re-
bate checks, a relatively
simple process that could
bring each recipient at least
$300. The state's toll-free
Elder Helpline can help di-
rect seniors to local offices
that can provide assistance.
Florida Department of
Elder Affairs Secretary E.
Douglas Beach urged the
state's older residents who
have not et filed for the re-
bate to do so immediately.
Seniors need to file a feder-
al tax return by Wednesday,
Oct. 15 in order to receive a
stimulus payment before
the end of the year. The In-
ternal Revenue Service
says those most likely to
have still not applied are
low-income seniors, dis-
abled veterans and others
with disabilities who are
not required to file a feder-
al tax return.
"Older Floridians have
been hit particularly hard
by the economy, and every
little bit helps. These resi-
dents are. entitled to a re-
bate check, and we encour-
age them to take:the easy

steps to qualify for a pay-
ment," said Beach.
In June, the IRS reported
that almost 406,000 eligi-
ble Floridians had not yet
received stimulus rebate
checks because they had
not filed tax returns. Those
Floridians are entitled to a
combined $121,790,400.
Both figures are the fourth
largest in the nation.
Seniors and other eligi-
ble Floridians can qualify
for the rebate by filing an
IRS form 1040A tax return,
filling in just a few lines
and writing "Stimulus Pay-
ment" across the top of the
form. Local IRS offices can
help complete the form,
and the Department of El-
der Affairs' Elder Helpline
- toll-free, 800-96-ELDER
(800-963-5337) can pro-
vide telephone numbers for
local IRS offices through-
out the state. Additional
free assistance is available
for seniors in some Florida
communities, and the Elder
Helpline will be able to
provide information for
residents in those commu-


nities.
Many seniors do not file
tax returns because, Social
Security payments are not
subject to income tax and
they do not otherwise have
the $3,000 in income that
makes a tax return neces-
sary. However, the eco-
nomic stimulus law passed
in February contains a spe-
cial provision allowing So-
cial Security recipients to
count those benefits in or-
der to qualify for the re-
bate.
"Some seniors may not
have realized that they are
'eligible 'for a"' stimulus
check, and all they have to
do is file a basic tax re-
turn," Beach said. "This
money is there for them -
they simply have to ask."'
To qualify for a stimulus
check, individuals must
have at least $3,000 in
qualifying income, includ-
ing any combination of
earned income, nontaxable'
combat pay, and certain
benefit payments from So-
cial Security. VA, and Rail-
road Retirement.

SRWMD first public entity in

Florida to receive SFI certification


The Suwannee River
Water Management Dis-
trict (SRWMD) is pleased
to announce that it is the
first public entity in the
state of Florida to receive
certification of its lands
under the Sustainable
Forestry Initiative (SFI)
Standard. A third-party au-
dit was completed in July
and found that the District
was in conformance with
the standard on all of its
160,000 acres of fee-
owned lands.
Certification to the SFI
Standard assures the pub-
lic that the lands are being
managed in an environ-
mentally and socially re-
sponsible manner, and the
ability of the land to pro-
duce goods and services
for future generations is


not compromised.
"By becoming certified
we are basically solidify-
ing that we are doing a
good job with managing
the public's assets," said
SRWMD Forester Randy
Hall. "We have been rec-
ognized as the first public
organization in Florida to
achieve this honor."
In 2003 the District be-
came a SFI participant,
and District staff fulfilled a
requirement of the pro-
gram this year by having
an independent audit con-
ducted by accredited SFI
auditors.
"These audits are rigor-
ous, on-the-ground assess-
ments of an organization's
operations," said Hall. "It
took a lot of effort and
hard work to achieve this


certification."
Certification by SFI
means international recog-
nition for organizations as
well as other benefits such
as improved environmen-
tal management and docu-
mentation of District oper-
ations.
The SFI program is
based on the premise that
responsible environmental
behavior and sound busi-
ness practices can co-exist.
SFI is the primary forest
certification system adopt-
ed by the forest industry. It
promotes responsible for-
est management in North
America and responsible
procurement globally. The
program has 219 partici-
pants and 137 million en-
rolled acres across North
America;


Bronson seeking records of 16 oil

terminals in price gouging probe


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Com-
missioner Charles H. Bron-
son announced recently
that he is issuing subpoenas
for financial information
from 16 major oil terminals
in Florida in connection
with an ongoing investiga-
tion of gasoline price
spikes associated with Hur-
ricane Ike.
The subpoenas are
scheduled to be hand deliv-
ered to the terminals on
Tuesday, and they are seek-
ing records to determine
whether any of them ille-
gally increased the whole-
sale prices that were
passed on to retail gas sta- '
tions and ultimately their
customers. The subpoenas
call for the records to be
provided to Bronson's of-
fice in seven days.
"It's critical that we go to
the source." Bronson said.
"A number of gas stations
are claiming that they are
only passing on increases
that they have had to pay,


so it is vital to examine
where these price increases
originated."
Under state law, it is un-
lawful to charge excessive
prices for essential iteins,
including gasoline, water,
ice, lumber, batteries and
shelter, following the decla-
ration of a state emergency
unless the increases in the
amount charged are attrib-
utable to additional costs
incurred by those supplying
the items.
Individuals or businesses
found to have engaged in
price gouging face fines up
to $1,000 per violation, or


up to a maximum fine of
$25,000 a day.
SSubpoenas are being is-
sued to the following com-
panies: 2008 Price Gouging
Terminals.
Meanwhile, more than
2,300 price-gouging calls
were received by Bronson's
office during the last 3
days, and the volume of':
calls remains heavy.
Consumers who have
been the victims of price
gouging or have witnessed
such activity are encour-
aged to call Bronson's toll-
free hotline at 1 800 HELP
FLA (800-435-7352).

Suwannee Bullpups stomp the Trojans


By Terry Mixon

The Suwannee Middle
School Bullpups football
team defeated the Hamilton
County Middle School Tro-
jans Sept. 16 in their home
opener by a score of 26 to
6. With the win the 'Pups
move to two wins and no
losses on the year, and will
next take on Richardson
Middle School in Lake
City in the first Florida
Crown Conference game of
the season next week.
In the Hamilton game,
the Trojans took the open-
ing kickoff and drove the
length of the field, scoring
on a pass play that covered
15 yards and a 6 to 0 lead.
The 'Pup defense then
stopped the attempted point
after touchdown when
Hamilton ran wide and was
stopped short of the goal
line. Suwannee took the
ensuing kickoff and scored
when halfback Antwon
Williams took a quick
pitch seven yards for the
first Bullpup score of the
night. Quarterback Jimmie
Taylor found Williams on
a swing pass out of the
backfield for the 2-point
conversion, giving Suwan-
nee an 8 to 6 lead. On
Hamilton's next posses-
sion, linebacker Reed
Castro fell on a loose ball
in the endzone for another
Bullpup score, but the
point after failed and
Suwannee led 14 to 6.
In the second half of the
game, fullback Dalvious
McQuay added a pair of
touchdowns for the
Bullpups with runs of nine
and eleven yards, with the
point after attempts failing
after both scores. Players
of the game were Antwon
Williams, Dalvious
McQuay, and Reed
Castro.


FWC passes new rule

on limits for freshwater

turtle harvests


T he Florida Fish and
SWildlife Conserva-
.T. tion Commission
(FWC) passed a rule on
Wednesday that sets new lim-
its for the harvest of freshwa-
ter turtles.
The new rule limits the har-
vest of native Florida fresh-
water turtles to five per day.
However, fishermen with a
commercial license are al-
lowed to harvest 20 Florida
soft-shell turtles per day. The
new rules have been passed to


protect freshwater turtle pop-
ulations while the FWC de-
velops a long-term compre-
hensivestrategy for sustain-
able use of amphibian and
reptile populations. The new
rules limit the number of tur-
tles that may be taken from
the wild, not from turtle
farms or other aquaculture fa-
cilities. No changes have
been made to the number of
turtles people may possess;

Size-limit changes proposed


for Gulf amberjack and triggerfish


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
on Thursday proposed raising the
minimum harvest size for greater
amberjack and gray triggerfish in
Gulf of Mexico state waters. The
FWC is proposing these rule
changes to be consistent with new
regulations in Gulf federal waters,
which extend beyond nine nautical
miles offshore of Florida.
Federal fisheries managers re-


cently implemented a stock rebuild-
ing plan for greater amberjack and
gray triggerfish in Gulf federal wa-
ters. Greater amberjack in the Gulf
are considered to be over fished
(low stock abundance) and under-
going over fishing (excessive har-
vesting pressure), and gray trigger-
fish in the Gulf are considered to
be undergoing over fishing.
The FWC is proposing rule
amendments consistent with the


Gulf federal regulations by increas-
ing the recreational minimum har-
vest size for greater amberjack
from 28 to 30 inches fork length
and increasing the commercial and
recreational minimum harvest size
for gray triggerfish from 12 to 14
inches fork length in Gulf state wa-
ters.
A final public hearing on the pro-
posed rule amendments will be held
in December in Key West.


FWC passes new rules to thwart

illegal release of nonnative fish and wildlife


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) adopted new rules on Wednesday that will
provide options for unpermitted owners of nonnative
species if they can no longer keep their pet.
"Release of exotic animals by pet owners remains a
significant pathway for the introduction of nonnative
species," said the FWC's Scott Hardin. "As a result, the
FWC initiated a series of pet amnesty events to provide
an option for owners of exotic pets to surrender their
unwanted pets to responsible agencies or individuals in-
stead of illegally releasing them."
The FWC requires a captive wildlife permit to own
many nonnative species, including Class II and Il
wildlife, venomous reptiles and the six species desig-
nated as reptiles of Concern. The new rule allows, at
FWC-sponsored amnesty events, owners of unpermitted


fish and wildlife to surrender their animals, and for
adopters to accept nonnative fish and wildlife from un-
permitted individuals, without penalty. This addition is
an exemption from the current rule that prohibits trans-
fers of wildlife of any kind when permits are required.
The new rule also allows state and county animal
control agencies to accept unpermitted nonnative ani-
mals, with the owners allowed to surrender those ani-
mals to the agencies without penalty.
The FWC has sponsored three amnesty day events.
The next Pet Amnesty Day will be at the Jacksonville
Zoo Nov. 22, and another one will be in Miami in early
2009.
The passage of the new rule will help prevent further
releases of nonnative fish and wildlife into Florida's di-
verse and fragile environment.


FWC considers quota

hunt system changes


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) dis-
cussed changes to the
quota hunt system at its
meeting in Jacksonville on
Wednesday. The FWC
uses the quota hunt sys-
tem to control the number
of hunters on wildlife
management areas during
high-demand periods.
After considering sever-
al options, including a list
of proposals from a stake-
holder working group for
overhauling the agency's
quota hunt system, the
Commission asked staff to
continue analyzing other
possible options.
Proposals to alter the
way the FWC issues the
permits and to make per-
mits non-transferable
among hunters drew com-
pelling reactions from
both sides of the issue.
Some argued the current
system leads to abuses;
others said the abuses are
limited to a few individu-


als and do not warrant
changes that would make
the system less user-
friendly to ethical hunters.
Florida is the only state
that allows transferring
quota hunt permits. The
state does not allow the
purchase or sale of quota
hunt permits.
Commissioners directed
FWC staff to develop ad-
ditional options that could
have more universal sup-
port among affected
hunters, while addressing
fair and flexible consider-
ations that limit potential
for abuse.
"This meeting helped us
focus on the best way to
achieve fair access for
hunting on wildlife man-
agement areas in Florida,"
said Diane Eggeman, di-
rector of the FWC's Divi-
sion of Hunting and Game
Management. "We look
forward to bringing back a
new proposal in the near
future for the 2009-10
hunting season."

FWC passes new rule on limits for

freshwater turtle harvests


Continued From Page 1B

the existing limits still apply.
Furthermore, rules about selling
or baying turtles also have not
changed.
"With the newly approved rule
in place protecting freshwater
turtles, we will continue to de-
velop a long-term strategy for
the management and conserva-
tion of Florida's amphibian and


reptile species," said Bill Turner,
an FWC amphibian and reptile
.specialist. "We expect to bring
the strategy for freshwater turtles
back to the Commission in one
year."
Increased demand for freshwa-
ter turtles nationally and interna-
tionally caused the FWC to be-
gin to evaluate the management
of these species to ensure the
populations aren't over-exploit-


ed. Alabama, Michigan, Mary-
land, North Carolina, South Car-
olina, Tennessee and Texas re-
cently restricted their turtle har-
vests, which may cause turtle
harvesters from those states to
focus on Florida, Turner said.
The new rules are interim
measures while the FWC works
diligently on a long-term strate-
gy for conservation of these
species. ''

They have only lost 27

Who said our pro

say about the Fish? The
Miami Dolphins got
their second victory in

although they only went
18 and 1 Giant loss.
The mighty Dolphins
beat the Patriots like

Georgia:was ranked one

Hunters, be careful cleaning wild hogs


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is
encouraging hunters to take precautions when dressing and handling
harvested wild hogs.
Wild hogs, though not originally native to Florida, are now found
within all 67 counties, and like any wild animal, can carry parasites
and, diseases some of which can be transmitted to people. One
such disease for hunters to be concerned with is swine brucellosis.
The FWC is advising hunters handling wild hog
carcasses to take the following precautions to pro-
tect themselves from exposure to this bacterial
disease:
Avoid eating, drinking or using tobacco
when field-dressing or handling carcasses.
Use latex or rubber gloves when han-
dling the carcass or raw meat.
Avoid direct contact with blood, repro-
ductive organs and fecal matter. Wearing long
sleeves; eye protection and covering any scratch-
es, open wounds or lesions will help provide pro-
tection.
Clean and disinfect knives, cleaning area,
clothing and any other exposed surfaces when fin-
ished.
Wash hands freauentlv with soap and wa-


ter.
When cooking wild hog, as with any wild
game, care in handling is an important part of dis-
ease prevention, and the meat should be cooked
thoroughly to 170 degrees. Swine brucellosis is
not transmitted through properly cooked meat.
"Hunters shouldn't be overly concerned with
swine brucellosis, but they should practice these
good-hygiene, safety precautions when field-
dressing wild hogs," FWC wildlife veterinarian
Mark Cunningham said.
Brucellosis in people is called undulant fever


and could be transmitted if a hunter cut himself while field-dressing
a wild hog or was exposed to the animal's blood or bodily fluids.
Symptons include a recurrent fever, chills, night sweats, weakness,
headaches, back pain, swollen joints, loss of appetite and weight
loss.
Hunters who exhibit these symptoms or may have been exposed
should contact a physician.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) on
Thursday proposed rule amendments
for gag grouper in Gulf of Mexico state
waters to be consistent with anticipated
regulations in Gulf federal waters. In
addition, the FWC is proposing to al-'
low Florida recreational anglers to har-
vest more red grouper in Gulf state wa-
ters.
A recent stock assessment indicated
that Gulf gag grouper is undergoing
over fishing (excessive harvesting pres-
sure) and harvest levels must be re-
duced. Interim federal regulations to
address this situation are expected to
be implemented in January in Gulf wa-
ters beyond nine nautical miles off-
shore, and the FWC is proposing gag
grouper rule amendments for state wa-
ters that are consistent with the federal
regulations.
These rules would establish a two-
fish per person recreational daily bag


limit for gag grouper within the five-
grouper aggregate limit in Gulf state
waters, and prohibit the recreational.
harvest of gag grouper from Gulf state
waters from Feb. 1 through March 31.
Currently, recreational fishers in the
Gulf are allowed to keep up to five gag
grouper daily, and there is no recre-
ational closed season.
The FWC is also proposing a rule
amendment that would increase the
recreational daily bag limit for red
grouper in Gulf state waters from one
fish per person to.two beginning Jan. 1.
A recent stock assessment concluded
that the Gulf red grouper stock has re-
covered enough to allow an increase in
harvest levels, and it is expected that
the recreational red grouper bag limit
in Gulf federal waters will be increased
to two fish sometime in 2009.
A final public hearing on these pro-
posed rule amendments will be held in
December in Key West.

Florida ranch recognized for conservation

efforts at national conference


Finding a balance between farmn-
ing, ranching and conservation is
not an impossible task. Just ask the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) about
the Longino Ranch in Arcadia, and
a success story for conservation
emerges.
As a result of effectively manag-
ing private lands with wise conser-
vation practices, the Longino
Ranch received the Private Lands
Fish and Wildlife Stewardship
award from the Association of Fish
and Wildlife Agencies at its annual
conference on Sept. 10 in Saratoga
Springs, N.Y.
Nominees for this award come
from fish and wildlife agencies
around the country. The FWC
nominated Longino Ranch for its
outstanding commitment and stew-
ardship in preserving the environ-
mentally sensitive land while still
managing a successful cattle, citrus
and timber operation.
"The Longino family has led the
way for more than 50 years in bal-
ancing the needs of the land with
the needs of a business,", said Tim
Breault, the FWC's director of the
Division Habitat and Species Con-
servation. "The FWC encourages
other farmers and landowners to
look to this ranch as a role model
for how to balance through diversi-
fication and a willingness to do
what is right for wildlife and the
environment."
Berryman T. "Buster" Longino
began running the 8,000-acre ranch
in Southwest Florida in the 1950s.
His father and grandfather pur-
chased the property in 1934 and
ran a turpentine camp there. After
Buster earned a degree at the Uni-
versity of Florida (UF) in the
1950s, he returned home to help


his father diversify after the tur-
pentine industry closed down.
Buster ran the operations at the
ranch until recently, but the proge-
ny of the original founder of
Longino Ranch still keep it all in
the family. John Minton, nephew
to Buster, accepted the award in
Saratoga Springs.
The FWC's Landowner Assis-
tance Program partners with pri-
vate landowners to achieve conser-
vation benefits on private lands.
The Longino Ranch has been an
active participant in this program.
Chris Wynn heads up this pro-
gram for the FWC, and he said the
Longino Ranch has made the part-
nership a successful one.
"They developed conservation
easements in perpetuity on half of
the property," Wynn said. "And
they have been willing to partici-
pate in wildlife research with us
and UF."
One such research project by the
FWC on this property involves
tracking turkeys to determine wild
turkey movements, nesting, repro-
duction and populations. The FWC
has also awarded a grant for the in-
stallation of riser culverts to retain
surface Water and conserve
groundwater in existing ditches.
Wynn also cited Longino Ranch's
willingness to participate in out-
reach activities by hosting wildlife-
related workshops and field days at
the ranch.
"Their willingness and attention
to managing Longino Ranch for
wildlife while managing for other
natural resources brought them to
our attention," Breault said. "They
have been active partners in find-
ing ways to effectively farm the
land while protecting it for future
generations."

Hospital moves into computer age


LIVE OAK -- The computer
age has almost arrived in full
bloom at the Suwannee County
Hospital.
After discussing the pro-
blems of billing and the lack of
up to date financial informa-
tion for months, the Suwannee
Hospital Board of Trustees
last year decided to purchase a
do it all modern marvel from
McAuto, a division of
McDonnell-Douglas Corpora-
tion.
Hospital Administrator
Floyd Miller recommended the
company because it had the
most experience designing pro-
grams for hospitals.
The equipment has been
operational since last week and
after the bugs have been work-
ed out,-it should be able to do
all patient billing, accounting.
payroll, accounts payable and
kep track of supplies, accor-
ding to Business Manager Lin-
da Barrington.
The system has two stations,
one for data input and one for
Inquiry.
A: the information fed into
he computer on an individual
patient is stored electronically
at company headquarters in St.
Louis. Hopefully, the perma-
nent record will help eliminate
billing mistakes.
' When a patient checks out of
the Suwannee County
Hospital, he or she will get a
"pill by pill itemization of
eerything that went on," Bar-
rington said. "After that,
you'll only get an itemized
statement by department."
The system automatically
bills the patient and if payment
is not received in 90 days,
automatically turns the bill
vder to the credit agency.
:The system is costing the
hospital about $1,000 per
month, but Barrington said
because of changes in Medicare
reimbursementt regulations,
automation is absolutely
necessary.


"You have to keep informa- times," she said. "That goes
tion at your fingertips and for patients as well as hospital
know where you are at all statistics.''

Healthy kids, naturally


Keeping kids and teens healthy can be a challenge during the busy school year. In
fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say that nearly 22 million
school days are lost annually due to the common cold alone.
Fortunately, there are some simple, and natural, things parents can do to help kids
stay healthy and energized for all their activities.
Hygiene. The CDC says that the single most important thing you can do to keep
from getting sick is to wash your hands. When there's not sink and soap around, use
natural hand sanitizers-wipes or gel-with 100 percent pure essential oils.
Nutrition. Growing bodies and brains need fiber and nutrients to stay healthy. A
child's health can suffer from too few of these good things and too many sugary,
highly processed foods.
The USDA Food Guide Pyramid recommends nine servings of fruits and vegetables
a day. One serving size of fruits and veggies for children equals one of the following:
1/2 cup juice
1 cup raw leafy salad greens
1/2 cup chopped raw, canned or cooked fruit or other vegetable
Essential fatty acids, particularly omega-3s, are crucial for development and health
of the brain, heart, nervous system, tissues, skin and immune system, especially for
school-age children. DHA can be found in fatty cold-water fish like salmon, mackerel
and tuna, and in DHA-enriched products like eggs and milk.
What about nutritional supplements? If kids and teens are actually eating nine
servings of colorful fruits and veggies-plus foods containing all the other
recommended daily nutrients-every day, then they probably don't need them. But with
picky eaters, tight schedules, food allergies and more, they don't often get what they
need. In these cases, supplements might be a good idea. But be careful. While it's
easy to find a fun and fruity multivitamin that kids don't mind taking each day, it's the
nutrients they need, not loads of sugar or artificial colors and flavors.
Rest. Rest, relaxation and sleep are-key for handling stress. While moderate stress is
normal, the demands of school life can cause stress overload for youngsters and
adolescents-and their parents and teachers! Be sure to schedule in downtime and
allow for adequate sleep when you're planning the week.
Kids need more sleep than you might think.
3-6 years old: 10 3/4-12 hours per day
7-12 years old: 10-11 hours per day
12-18 years old: 81/4-91/2 hours per day
Stomachaches, nervousness, trouble sleeping, anger flares or infections may be
signs of stress. Fortunately, there are plenty of safe, effective ways to handle it.
Breathingrdeep, exercising, stretching, physical play and homeopathic remedies may
help .. ... .:, .. .
If you would like to know more about natural ways to help your kids stay healthy,
the Whole Body Team Members at Whole Foods Market are well educated about all
of the products they offer and are happy to answer questions.
You can also visit WholeFoodsMarlket.com for educational podcasts and more
information.
