Snakes, lizards and

owner escape unharmed


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

An O'Brien man lost his home -
but not his pet lizards and snakes -
in a Thursday night fire, according
to Suwannee County Fire/Rescue
reports.
The residence of W.R. Summer-
sill, at 13169 218th Terrace,
caught fire when cigarette ashes in
a plastic trash bin ignited, said
Public Safety Director Charlie
Conner. After the bin, which was
located on the porch, caught fire,
the blaze traveled up the outside
wall of the home and into the at-
tic, Conner said.
Heavy smoke was venting from
the attic area upon arrival by
SCFR Station Three, in Branford.
Crews were able to extinguish the
flames after pulling down the ceil-
ing of the mobile home.
The fire, which began shortly
after 10 p.m., was under control
by 11:53 p.m., according to re-
ports.
No one was injured.
Conner stressed the importance
of placing hot ash in fireproof re-
ceptacles.
SCFR Rescue Two and volunteer
units from McAlpin, Luraville and
the Ranchettes also responded.
Conner estimated damage at
about $60,000 for the structure and
$30,000 for its contents.
Reptiles kept in the home were
also rescued. They included an
eight-and-a-half-foot python; five


two-foot pythons; one three-and-a-
half-foot king snake; one baby
monitor lizard and one four- to
five-foot iguana.

Flu Prevention and Treatment
Although the flu season varies in peak activity and duration based on
geographical location, the CDC .Advisory Committee on
Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends vaccination when
influenza vaccine is available in the Fall. The following persons
should receive an influenza vaccine for the 2008-2009 influenza
season, according to ACIP recommendations: all children aged 6
months through 18 years, a/ll persons. aged 50 years or older; acnd
other adults at risk for complications for influenza infection. Int
addition, persons who live with or care for persons who are tit highly
risk of complications should receive influenza vaccine.
Trivalent inactivated vaccine (TIV) and live attenuated influenza
vaccine (LAIV) are recommended to reduce the risk of infection with
influenza virus and subsequent complications. The Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) has approved six vaccines for the 2008-2009
influenza season: Afluria, Fluarix, FluLaval, Flavirin, Flazone, and
FluMist. FluMist is the LAIV. It is only recommended for healthy
persons aged 2 through 49 years. Antiviral medications arc also
available for the treatment of the flu. Oseltaminvir (Tamin/fl) and
zanamivir (Relenza) are approved for both ihe prevention and
treatment of influenza, although the flu vaccine is the first choice for
prevention. 177160-F

OUR V
Suwannee Democrat



A good idea



that could've


been better

Amendment 4, the conserva-
tion measure on the Nov. 4 bal-
lot, is a fine example of good
intentions not quite gone wrong
- but nearly so.
The amendment encourages
conservation by eliminating
property taxes on land the own-
er has agreed never to let be
developed. That sounds fair
enough. A developer willing to
forgo a strip mall surely de-
serves something in return.
Problem is, the rest of us foot
the bill. With the conserved
land off the tax rolls, millage
rates would have to be raised,
ever so slightly, to generate the
same revenue as before.
Is it worth it? We think so.
Preserving land in its natural
state benefits everybody. And,
as a practical matter, the actual
revenue lost probably won't
amount to much.
Still, every penny counts
nowadays, and unfunded man-
dates even self-imposed
ones, like Amendment 4 are
bleeding Florida's rural coun-
ties dry. We wish the Taxation
and Budget Reform Commis-
sion, the folks behind this pro-
posal, had thought of a differ-
ent way to reward landowners
willing to pitch in and help pre-
serve the environment.
On the whole, Amendment 4
is good for Suwannee County
and good for Florida. As the
economic picture becomes even
more uncertain, however, let's
take care not to nickel-and-
dime ourselves to death.

Time to take a stand


By Jennie Lyons
Executive Director
Vivid Visions, Live Oak
October is National Domestic Vio-
lence Awareness month. Domestic vio-
lence affects one in four women in
America and is the leading cause of in-
jury to women. The most difficult step
for a woman to take is to actually admit
that they are being abused by their part-
ner. Yet, admission is the first step
necessary in finding a way out of an
abusive relationship. A woman may ,
wonder why she is being beaten and
abused. Why society accepts do-
mestic violence and why it is viewed as
a private family issue. Domestic vio-.
lence is not a private family issue it is a
crime.
Unfortunately, a large portion of soci-
ety places a higher value on males. Peo-
ple say that this can't be true, that soci-
ety is enlightened and values females.
Yes, women are valued, but unfortunate-
ly, they are also viewed as weak and as
property. We need to ask ourselves why
we tell our sons when they don't perform
at our expectations or become emotion-
al that they are sissies, wimps or acting
like a girl. Why as a society do we do
this?


It is time that everyone in society take
a stand against violence against women
and girls, and stop ignoring the scream-
ing and the pain. It is time to reach out
and help our fellow humans all hu-
mans.
Why do people batter their partners?
Because they can. Domestic violence is
learned, people are not born batterers
and abusers. They are taught by example

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
AWARENESS MONTH
OCTOBER 2008
in most cases. Domestic violence is
about power and control, not the inability
to control anger. If abuse were about
anger, it wouldn't happen in the home, it
would happen in the parking lot of the
grocery store or in the aisles of a depart-
ment store. The abuser chooses their vic-
tim, where the victimization will occur,
how they will victimize and what
weapon they will use. An abuser is in
perfect control of their emotions and
their anger. They wait, they plan, and
then they attack. In a Bureau of Justice
study, approximately 75 percent of all
domestic violence victimizations occur in
the victim's residence. We teach our girls


at an early age that they are safe in their
homes and that there is danger on the
streets of society. Unfortunately, women
are more at risk of being victimized in
their own homes than anywhere else.
As a society, we can stop the violence.
We as neighbors, friends and families
can stop turning our backs, turning up
the television, shutting the blinds, and
help. Something as simple as supporting
victim rights and the domestic vio-
lence movement, and teaching our
children and grandchildren that vio-
lence is wrong.
Fortunately, there are ways for
those being abused to get help. In
Suwannee County, not only can a victim
of domestic violence get help from the
Sheriffs Office and the Live Oak Police
Department, but from Vivid Visions.
Vivid Visions is Suwannee County's cer-
tified domestic violence center. Vivid Vi-
sions provides not only emergency shel-
ter, but counseling and other services as
needed. Help is only a phone call away,
Vivid Visions' 24 hour hotline is linked
with the statewide domestic violence
hotline (1-800-500-1119) allowing the
caller to contact a local center from any-
where in the state. Together, we can end
abuse and improve lives.

IBMA award-winning Daughters


of Bluegrass release new CD

Bluegrass Bouquet now available


Editor's note: Former
Live Oak resident and
daughter of the late blue-
grass legend Carter Stan-
ley, Jeanie Stanley
Allinder was part of this
project. "The first cut is
called 'Proud To Be A
Daughter of Bluegrass,'"
Allinder said. "I was so.
honored that Ms. Dixie
Hall wrote these lines es-
pecially for me to sing on
this song."


Nashville, TN: Blue
Jeanie Allinder-Stanley Circle Records is proud to
present the release of an
organic all-female album, Bluegrass Bouquet from the
IBMA Recorded Event of the Year award-winning Daugh-
ters of Bluegrass. This CD is a landmark extravaganza
featuring over 50 daughters and 17 songs. -
The opening cut, PROUD TO BE A DAUGHTER, writ-
ten by Dixie Hall and kicked off by the capable five-string
picking of Donica Christensen, expresses sentiment
shared by the likes of: Dale Ann Bradley, Heather Berry,
Lisa Martin, Gloria Belle, Sierra Hull, Rhonda Vincent,
Lisa Ray, Linda Lay, Sally Jones, Carol Lee Cooper,
Jeanie Stanley, Sonya Isaacs, Becky Isaacs Bowman,
Michelle Nixon, Jeanette Williams, Sophie Haislip,
Louise Tomberlain, Mindy Rakestraw, Lizzy Long,
Frances Mooney, Lorraine Jordan, Annette Kelly, Lily
Lieux, Dixie Hall, Judi Marshall, Beth Lawrence, Melissa
Lawrence, Rebecca Frazier, Jenni Lyn Gardner, and Lisa
Manning.
There were no "side-men" on Bluegrass Bouquet. It was
designed to showcase the talents of women from all styles
of bluegrass with the main focus being the breathtaking
variety of picking, singing and, writing of these talented
women in bluegrass such as: Gena Britt, Vicki Simmons,
Megan McCormick, Becky Buller, Tina Adair; Kristin
.Scott Benson, Rebekah Long, Jenee Fleenor, Jeana Mar-


tin, Janice Martin, Larita Martin, Martha Adcock, Amber
Burks, Beth Stevens and additional featured vocalists:
Janet McGarry, Valerie Smith, Stacy York, Dara Wray,
Alecia Nugent, Jennifer Strickland and more.
Other than mastering and pressing, Bluegrass Bouquet
is truly a labor of love. Monies for publicity, promotion,
music, writing and publishing, studio, art, graphics, food'
and travel were never a consideration. The master is
owned by The Daughters themselves who wanted this to
be all about the music, thus illustrating the fact that
women throughout the bluegrass industry are indeed wor-
thy. These girls aim to shatter the BLUEGLASS CEIL-
ING ... that's correct, BLUEGLASS.
Song samples can be found at the Blue Circle website.
Albums are available for purchase from most of the
women at live performances and their respective websites,
plus www.cdbaby.com, www.bluecirclerecords.com, and
Ernest Tubb Records. Mail order requests should be sent

der, POBox 1246, Franklin, TN 37065

NFCC student Tonya Blanton gives inspiring

presentation to college faculty and staff


At the start of each fall term, North
Florida Community College (NFCC) em-
ployees gather together for a college-wide
meeting that offers campus updates, de-
partmental reminders and introductions of
new faculty and staff. Guest speakers are
chosen each year to motivate and inspire
college employees as they begin a new
academic year. Past guests have ranged
from Florida community college leaders to
prominent judges and successful business
owners.
This fall' NFCC Acting President John
Grosskopf introduced the 2008 guest
speaker as one of "the most important
speaker we've ever had" and as NFCC stu-
dent Tonya Blanton delivered her presenta-
tion it quickly became clear why this was
true. Blanton is a student success story,
moving from the GED program to pursu-
ing a career in teaching, and she wanted to
thank NFCC and its employees for their
role in her success.
"I am here to give testimony to the way
this institution and its staff have changed
my life forever," said Blanton in her open-
ing remarks. "Thanks to all of the great ex-
amples of teachers, here at NFCC, my fu-


ture is no longer a dead end. I am inspired
to take what each of you have taught me
and pass it on to my future students."
To fully understand Blanton's success
story, it's necessary to look back at her
past. In the second grade Blanton was di-
agnosed with a learning disability and told
that she would not excel academically.,
Blanton struggled through school and
dropped out during her 11th grade year.
After several unsuccessful attempts to get
her GED, Blanton gave up on education.
She took a job at a gas station. By this
time Blanton was also married with two
children. Struggling with limited career
options and ultimately the realization that
she could not help her daughter with third
grade algebra homework, Blanton decided
it was time to give education another try
and enrolled in NFCC's GED program.
"I learned quickly that I needed to over-
come my weaknesses to be able to com-
pete in the workforce," said Blanton. "My
instructors not only taught me basic educa-
tion, they taught me to believe in myself. I
completed the class in about five months
and passed the GED test with almost 1,000
more points than I needed. There are no


words in the English language to describe
the feeling of walking across the NFCC
stage with my husband and kids there to
cheer me on."
Blanton was NFCC's Adult Education
Student of the Year in 2006 and was fea-
tured in the Florida Literacy Coalition pub-
lication "Success Factors in High Achiey-
ing Adult Learners." She enrolled in
NFCC's Associate in Arts program in the
fallof 2006 and soon vill complete her de-
gree. Blanton then plans to continue stud-
ies toward a bachelor's degree and pursue
a career in teaching and education.
According to Blanton, it was NFCC in-
structors who pointed out her talent for
teaching and encouraged her to continue
her education, "1 decided to go for it and
enrolled the next fall."
"The instructors that I had that first year
and every year following have taught me
more than just the subject I signed up for,"
said Blanton. "Your labor has not only
touched my life, but also the lives of my
family and friends ... now with my deter-
mination and all of your guidance, it has
become clear that I can achieve my goals."
Blanton ended her presentation to a

standing ovation and was a shining re-
minder of what is most important at NFCC
- its students and the impact college em-
ployees can have in leading students to-
ward success.
"Ms. Blanton's story reminds us, in a
very compelling way, why we are here and
what we are supposed to do," said
Grosskopf. "It is easy to get distracted by
all the other issues that we need to deal
with, but at the end of the day our primary
mission is to serve our students and serve
them well."

On Sept. 20, Suwannee High
School's NJROTC unit compet-
ed against 15 other schools in 12
different events at the Extreme
Wildcat Challenge in Winter


Park. Suwannee brought home
six trophies: Dizzy Izzy second
place; Clothes Horse Relay -
second place; Commando
Lifeboat Relay second place
and Blindmans Bluff third
place. Suwannee also took home


the Spirit Award, our second
year in a row for outstanding
sportsmanship and overall com-
petition.
Suwannee took second place
overall. While other schools took
up to 163 cadets, Suwannee took


only 47 students to compete.
Winning second place shows
that it's not about how many
people you bring, it's about how
much teamwork, spirit, and mo-
tivation they have. Suwannee
cheered for each other while


they competed and they even
cheered for the other teams that
were competing.
Suwannee High School
NJROTC unit is a unit full of
professionalism and pride and
they displayed it constantly.

cancer risk, please contact your health
care provider or the Suwannee County .
Health Department.
What is breast cancer?
Breast Cancer occurs when abnormal
cells grow out of control in one or both
breasts. The cells can join in the breast
tissue and form a mass, called a malig-
nant tumor. Sometimes, the cancers cells
can spread (or metastasize) to other parts
of the body. Although it is rare, men can
sometimes develop breast cancer too.
Breast Cancer is many women's worst
fear. However, doctors have made great
progress in finding and treating cancer. If
breast cancer is found early, it can often,
be cured and it is not always necessary to
remove the breast.
What causes breast cancer?
Several different factors increase the
chance that you will get breast cancer.
Some,of the main ones are:


Age -.78 percent of women with
breast cancer are over age 50.
Family history of breast cancer
Using hormone therapy after
menopause raises your risk
Starting menstrtition before age 12.
and menopause after 55
Some other things -are known to in-
crease your risk, such as having extra
body fat, not exercising and drinking al-
cohol.
Nevertheless, many women who do not
have these risk factors still get breast can-
cer. It is important for you to stay as.
healthy as possible and be aware of your
risk factors and any changes you experi-
ence with your health.
Next week, we will present more infor-
mation on symptoms, prevention and ear-
ly detection of breast cancer.
For more information call Mary Ward,
Suwannee County Health Department,

Coordinator at 386-362-2708, ext. 259.

NFCC News



NFCC students participate in



reading scholarship contest


NFCC English instructor Rose Nixon is encouraging
students to read more books this term. She has chal-
lenged students in her basic reading skills class to
compete in the Townsend Press Reading Scholarship
Contest, which awards students cash prizes for reading
a set number of paperback books during a semester.
"I see the great need for a motivational factor to
show students how fun reading can be," said Nixon. "I
am so excited about the opportunity offered by
Townsend Press, for I think it will motivate students to
become life-long readers."
Townsend Press gives students the opportunity to
read up to 30 pre-approved books, which are provided
at no charge to the school, and the opportunity to win
$100 for each set of 10 books read. According to
Townsend Press, many first-year college students ad-
mit to never having read a book from cover to cover or
say they don't make a habit of reading, but Townsend
Press feels the benefits of reading are
beyond dispute "regular reading
makes students better readers, writ-
ers, speakers, listeners and thinkers."
Nixon agrees, "Research shows
that readers excel in all linguistic ar-
eas including grammar, mechanics,
speech, and overall critical thinking
and comprehension." She hopes the
assignment will motivate her stu-
dents to get out from in front of the
television and read more books in-
stead. "I ran across a comment by E.
Tolle in one of his books this week,"
said Nixon. "He said by the time an
American becomes a senior citizen,
they have spent 15 years in front of
the television set. This is a sad com-
mentary of our culture."
Already this term, Nixon's stu-
dents have become extremely inter-
ested in reading and competing in
the contest. A few are already ap-
proaching the first 10 book mark.
"Reading is a way to embrace a
different part of life," said NFCC
student Victoria Horvath. "It can be
fun, sad, entertaining, inspirational,
motivational, or even a mystery."
NFCC student Meghan Ortega is
also enjoying the reading assign-
ment, "I like to read because it gives
me a chance to relax and let my
imagination grab a hold of me," said i
Ortega. "Reading allows my imagi-
nation to travel to places I want to NFCC instructor
go ... it also gives me the opportuni- reading scholars
ty to relate or become a character in (Perry), Terica D


the story."
The contest has given student Frankie Jones a new
appreciation for reading, "I use to not like reading, but
now I enjoy it," said Jones. "Having the right book
helps me enjoy what I am reading."
Students participating in the Townsend Press Read-
ing Scholarship Contest must be enrolled at a two or
four-year college and must be taking a developmental
course in reading or writing.
"If you succeed in this contest, the money will not
be your only reward," said Townsend Press. "Reading
anywhere from 10 to 30 books especially if you have
never been much of a reader would be an extraordi-
nary act of personal achievement, growth and self-em-
powerment."
Nixon's challenge to her students to compete in the
contest this term is definitely getting students involved
with reading. She hopes the students will continue


reading on a regular basis once the Basic Reading
Skills class and contest are over.
"Reading taps in to the critical side of the brain,"
said Nixon.

NFCC Administrative


Assistant Program


offers business training


Program helping local students

reach their career goals


North Florida Community College (NFCC) instructor
Enid Kozlowski is helping prepare area students for ca-
reers in business. With nine students currently enrolled
in NFCC's Administrative Assistant Program, Kozlows-
ki is confident that the skills being taught in this career
and technology based program will help students suc-
ceed on the job.
"The nine students that are currently in the program
come from all walks of life and abilities, but everyone
works together toward the common goal of obtaining
an administrative position at the end of the year," said
Kozlowski. "NFCC has an opportunity to change the
future of these students and help them to become a pro-
ductive office assistant."
Charyle Carmichael of Live Oak is one of the nine
students in NFCC's Administrative Assistant Program.
This is her first semester at NFCC and-she plans to con-
tinue into the Legal Administrative Assistant track.
"The teachers are very well informed," said
Carmichael. "The campus is nice, it's not overcrowded
and you receive one-on-one instruction."


Carmichael and her student
peers are learning about business
systems, office technology, busi-
ness software, digital design,
keyboarding, employability _
skills, filing, business math and
English, communication and CAREER AND TECHI
computer concepts. Some of the one of the nine stude

current skills in order to get a
better job and others are gaining skills to start a new
career.
"The definition of the 'administrative assistant' is
constantly changing, but the one thing that remains
constant is that employers are looking for employees
who are competent and dependable," said Kozlowski.
"No longer is the administrative assistant expected just
to answer phones, but he/she needs to be organized,
computer savvy, dependable and able to communicate
well in the business world."
Students completing the program have the option to

NFCC updates College Preparatory Education Building

Upgraded facility offers improved services for student success


For the past 50 years, North Florida
Community College (NFCC) has been
providing exceptional educational oppor-
tunities to its students. The college is
now looking forward to how it can better
serve its students, its employees and the
community in the years to come.
This term, with that goal in mind,
NFCC completed renovations to its Col-
lege Preparatory Education Building and
students and instructors are experiencing
the benefits of upgraded classrooms,
computer labs and student study areas.
The newly refurbished building also of-
fers the latest educational technology
and a better organized area for student
support and college preparatory services.
"I am so thrilled to be in a building
with such state of the art technology,"
said NFCC English instructor Rose
Nixon. "Not only is technological access
important for students who need to re-
view skills, but the classrooms are
arranged with each individual in mind. I
can circulate and conference with each
student and monitor progress daily. The
fact that all the Student Support Services
members are in the same building as the
college prep instructors is greatly benefi-
cial to the students. We are truly a team
because of our proximity and our avail-
ability to students and their needs."
In redesigning the building, NFCC's
goal was to create a one-stop center con-
ducive to student learning and success.
The Student Support Services depart-
ment is strategically placed at the center
of the building with classrooms, learning
labs, tutoring facilities, study areas and
faculty and staff offices located just steps
away.
"Our goal was to establish a communi-
ty for the students we serve each term,"
said Nancy Lillis, director of Student
Support Services at NFCC. "We now
have one area where students can meet
with advisors, get assistance, explore
college and career choices, and find the
help they seek to be successful at the
college level."


NFCC student peer tutors now have an
excellent place to offer tutoring in read-
ing, math, English, writing and others ar-
eas upon request. The updated class-
rooms, equipped with SMART Board in-
teractive whiteboards and student com-
puter stations, provide an optimal learn-
ing and teaching environment. Larger
windows were incorporated into the re-
design to offer more natural light and a
positive learning atmosphere. The class-
rooms, labs and study areas offer com-
fortable and easily accessible facilities
and computers in the building are
equipped with learning software and pro-
grams to further assist with student suc-
cess.
"The new and improved Student Suc-
cess Center is very efficient not only for
the students but for the tutors as well,"
said Allen Demps, NFCC student and
head peer tutor. "It is an advantage to
students that are seeking assistance to.
get that in an environment that is fully
equipped with not only tutors but tech-
nologically advanced educational materi-
al. For instance the SMART boards al-
low me as a tutor to display math prob-
lems for students and to really go in
depth, painting a visual for that individ-
ual that is seeking help. I absolutely love
the improvements; it says a lot about our
school and its mission to reach students."
Ultimately the new design of the
building and the relocated Student Sup-
port Services department and College
Preparatory programs have been imple-
mented to better insure that students are
successful their first term at NFCC, that
students don't drop out after their first
semester of college, to graduate students
and to insure that students have a pro-
ductive and successful college experi-
ence and are well prepared to continue
their education beyond NFCC.
"This facility and the support offered
here are excellent and I'm confident that
all the tools are in place to help our stu-
dents'be successful," said NFCC Acting
President John Grosskopf.

Loving pets for you from the Suwannee County animal shelter

By Ana Smith

The days are moving quickly now, and here at the shelter we are get- : ,.:
ting ready for our "Fall Animal Festival."
Watch this newspaper for more information on what's in store this '
year, and mark your calendars for Saturday-Sunday, Nov. 8-9 for a fun- A r,
filled weekend at the Suwannee County Fairgrounds.
We have a lot of cats and kittens in our foster-care program that are
ready for loving homes. Gray and black tiger-striped kittens, black and .
tan tabbies, orange and white young cats, beautiful "tortoise" marked
cats, as well as a few black and white kittens that want good homes to f
give them a happy life. We have a young cat which is marked like a s
Siamese who is loving and likes to snuggle anda young Maine Coon
mix cat with a very short tail who "talks" when given any attention.
.If you are a senior citizen looking for a lovable companion, we have
a few that are altered and would make excellent house companions.
Just come to the shelter, or call and ask about any in our foster pro-
gram. If you don't see what you want at the shelter, chances are one of
our foster homes has one that is just right for you.
Now that the weather is getting cooler, please think about the needs
of your pets. Even outside cats and dogs need a safe and warm place to :'
go at night. Choose a place for their food bowls so the damp night air
doesn't cause left-over food to get soggy and sour. Maybe an old blan-
ket in a large box would make a good place for sleeping if your pet is
kept outside. And having that one spot to sleep in could keep your pet
from wandering off at night in search of a sheltered sleeping place, like
digging under your mobile home out of the damp, cool night air. Let me show you how lovable I can be!!!
And it's always a priority to plan to have your pet spayed or
neutered. There are services available to help you get this done without
the high expense involved. You can get more information from the I
Suwannee County Animal Shelter and from North Florida Paws, an or-
ganization to which we have recommended many new pet owners.
Suwannee County Animal Shelter is located at 11150 144th Street in
McAlpin, just off US 129 on the same road as the big county land-fill.
We are open on Monday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Tuesday through
Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to about
noon.
Call 386-208-0072 first if you plan to come out on Saturday to make
sure someone is there because there is only one animal control officer X
on duty that day.
Our sincere thanks to those who continue to provide us with dona-
tions that keep our shelter animals cared for. We always appreciate
bags of pet food and cat litter, cleaning supplies, blankets and towels,, -
etc. Visit our display when you are in the Live Oak Wal-Mart store for
a list of supplies that are always needed, and photos of some of our .
"residents" waiting for loving homes.
Come by and visit, and we look forward to meeting you at the SCAS .,
Fall Animal Festival the second weekend in November. God bless! Come on! Pick one'of us! I know I'm pretty! Won't you take me home??

RECYCLING BINS:
Live Oak: There is a
newspaper recycling bin at
305 Pinewood Drive, Live
Oak, just west of Johnson's
'Appliance/Radio Shack.
Lee: Recycling bins are
located at the shelter at
1156 SE Bisbee Loop,
Madison (just South of
Lee) for newspapers, cata-
logs, paper, magazines and
broken down cardboard.
All the money goes to help
the homeless animals.

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


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

The Florida DIepartment of Environmental Protection's
Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center showcased popular
songs of Stephen Foster and classical and operatic composi-
tions of American tnusic at the 58th Stephen Foster/Jeanie
Auditions that was held at the park on Saturday, October 4th.
Established in 1950, the Stephen Foster/Jeartie Auditions
is co-sponsored by the Florida Federation of Music Clubs
and Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park. The vo-
cal competition for both young men and women awarded
$5,500 in scholarships to the winners.
From a field of eleven contestants, five were awarded
scholarships. Crowned "Jeanie"' for 2009 is Nicole Estima,
from Pembrook Pines and a junior at University of South
Florida. "Stephen" for 2009 is Mark Daniel Hakes from Ft.
Myers and a junior at Stetson University. First runner-up is
Adrianna Rodgers from Jacksonville who is a sophomore at
the University of Florida. Second runner-up is Lisa Ulseth
from Boyton Beach and a junior at the University of Flori-
da. First runner-up for "Stephen" is Hal Berkelhammer from
Gainesville who also attends the University of Florida.
Wearing period ball gowns and tuxedos, each participant
sang one song composed by Stephen Foster, and one song of
their choice written by American composers. The historical-
ly formal attire was in keeping with the theme of the event,
which is named for a song Stephen Foster wrote about his
wife, "Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair."

manages. Personnel at Sta-
tion 42 made $7,294 in
purchases within three
months at local building
supply stores, county fi-
nance records show..Many
of the purchases appear
not to have been autho-
rized in writing, in ad-
vance, as county regula-
tions require.
County commissioner
Jesse Caruthers had placed
on the agenda for yester-
day's county commission
meeting a request for an
investigation of spending
patterns at Station 42.
At the urging of Public
Safety Director Charlie
Conner, the recommenda-
tion to remove Dowdy was
added to the emergency
agenda for the same meet-
ing. Only the county com-
mission can remove a
member of the fire govern-
ing board.
The meeting was in
progress at the Democrat's
press deadline.
SDue to scheduling con-
flicts, fire board members
had suggested waiting two
weeks, until the next com-
mission meeting, to for-
mally ask for Dowdy's re-
moval.

leged conduct. Investiga-
tors determined that
Moreno had violated city
policy regarding conduct
and ethics and deter-
mined that there was suf-
ficient cause for his dis-
missal,.say reports.
Moreno was terminated
on Sept. 22.
The state attorney's of-


Cook said it would be best
if the entire fire board
were present at the meet-
ing, but that if they could
not attend, the board could
simply express its views in
a letter to commissioners.
Conner said it wasn't
fair to Dowdy or the coun-
ty commission not to ap-
pear in person.
"I just mean, this is a
pretty serious thing," said
Conner. "You guys just '
yoted on it, it should be
taken serious when you
decide to remove some-
body and somebody
should be there."
"This is pretty serious
and I think you guys are
backpeddling at this
point," he continued. "I
don't think that's very
good. This is a recorded
meeting, people are going
to be looking at this. This
is serious now, you guys
were serious enough to put
it out there. Man up and
do something. Either do it
or don't."
Board member Cleatos
McCook agreed.
"I think we do need the
whole board and support
there," McCook said.
On Friday, Dowdy
called the fire board's ac-
tions "just more political
wrangling during election
to cast a shadow over ei-
ther the commissioner of
the district I live in, or the
commissioner I represent
on the board. It is a shame
that politics and petty jeal-
ousy are trying to stand in
the way of all the good
that we're trying to accom-
plish in O'Brien. It has
never been done before, of
raising the standard of care
to an unprecedented lev-
el."
Board member Tim
Nagy was not present at
Thursday's meeting.

asked by a city council-
man whether the hearing
involving Moreno "could
be held 'behind closed

October: Domestic

Violence Awareness Month


Fire board to


recommend


chairman's ouster


Suwannee Valley Vic-
tim Assistance Coalition
to raise awareness about
domestic violence dur-
ing Domestic Violence
Awareness Month.
"It's the most underre-
ported crime," Lyons
said.
Domestic violence
can include physical vi-
olence, sexual abuse,
emotional abuse and
threats of violence.
"Most states have
warrantless arrests for
domestic violence,"
Lyons said.
In Florida an officer
can arrest a domestic
violence offender with-
out a warrant even if
the officer didn't wit-
ness the incident.
In determining proba-
ble cause the officer ex-
amines testimony and
the victim's injuries.
But if statements from
eyewitnesses and the
victim are compelling
enough, the presence of
injuries might not be
necessary to. make an
arrest, said SheriffFony
Cameron.
Domestic violence
has serious implications
for children.
''It's devastating for
children. We've seen
children as young as 5


already attempt sui-
cide," Lyons said.
Vivid Visions' main
goal is to help victims
identify unhealthy rela-
tionships and help pro-
vide a way out. That in-
cludes emergency shel-
ter and help obtaining
an injunction for protec-
tion. Services are confi-
dential and free of
charge. The emergency
shelter has 15 beds and'
two cribs.
Part of the program is
making a safety plan, .
which includes showing
a victim how to get
help, devising an es-
cape plan and providing
an emergency cell
phone.
Vivid Visions bad
more than 1,300 calls
come through its hotline
last year. Sixty to 80
women and children
stayed in the shelter and
300-400 women bene-
fited from the program's
numerous opportunities.
For more information _
or for help call the 24
hour hotline at 800-500-
1119.
"It is not a commit-
ment. If you just.want
to talk or get informa-
tion ... and you don't
have to give your 0'-
Sname," Lyons said.

Suspect arrested in trophy buck poaching


A suspect has been arrested for
the killing of a captive, domestic,
trophy, 12-point buck from a Lake
Butler game farm Sept. 6.
Dustin Cole Jernigan, 21, of
Haines City turned himself in to the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office
Sept. 29.
Investigators from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) and the Union
County Sheriff's Office had ob-
tained an arrest warrant for Jernigan
Sept. 24 for four felony charges for
killing the captive, pen-raised,
white-tailed deer. Charges included
armed trespass, two counts of cut-
ting a fence containing livestock
and theft of livestock.
The investigation revealed that
the suspect trespassed onto Shadd's
Game Farm, an FWC-licensed pri-
vate facility, on State Road 100,
west of Lake Butler.
Peabody, a stud deer with an ex-
tensive lineage, was killed, and the
animal's head and cape were re-
moved.
"The antlers are unique because
of a drop tine behind each ear. The
deer was tagged with a pinkish tag
in the left ear with:the #23 on it,"
said FWC lead investigator David
Lee. "We sent out flyers to taxider-
mists around the state, asking them
to call us if this deer was brought


into their shop."
The owner of the
trophy buck, John
Shadd, offered a re-
ward of $20,000 for
information leading
to the arrest and
conviction of the
culprit(s).
"We also request-
ed the public's help
and asked anyone
with information to
call and tell us what
they knew," Lee
said.
After sorting
through many calls and
gators discovered that
the deer head to a friend

Law enforcement officers with
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) are
investigating the dismemberment of
an American crocodile on the Uni-
versity of Miami campus. The
headless and tailless carcass was
discovered in a campus canal
Wednesday afternoon by University
police.
The FWC removed the carcass
and is processing it for evidence
that might lead to the apprehension
of a suspect or suspects.
American crocodiles are listed as


an endangered species in Florida
and a threatened species under fed-
eral laws. Anyone with information
on this case is asked to call the
FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-
404-3922 or Miami-Dade Crime
Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
"It's unfortunate someone
thought they had to kill this ani-
mal," said FWC biologist Lindsey
Hord. "It's against the law and for
good reason because the American
Crocodile is endangered."
The University of Miami, in part-
nership with the FWC, educates


students about the crocodiles that
make their home on the campus.
"The University has been an un-
derstanding neighbor to this '
species," Hord said. "They strive to
educate students about their pro-
tected status."
The FWC estimates 1,400 to
2,000 crocodiles live in southern
Florida. They do not occur any-
where else in United States. There
are no records of an American croc-
odile attack on humans in Florida.
The FWC continues to investi-
gate this case.


FWC builds island habitats from Lake Okeechobee muck


A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) biologist
has found uses for the muck that
workers scraped from the Lake Okee-
chobee lake bed during the recent
drought.
Don Fox, who fights a relentless
battle tending to the lake's health, has
discovered the muck is suitable for
constructing new islands in the lake.
He said a variety of plants grow well
on the man-made islands; and wildlife
- such as turkeys, turtles, mammals
and, in one case, a covey of quail -
has taken up residence on them.
"The animals are finding food and
cover they need on the islands;" Fox


said. "This is a kind of laboratory. We
see what grows well here, and we can
transplant it to other small islands
we've made."
Also, a nearby farmer covered some
land with the muck and found it
makes an excellent peat for South
Florida's sandy soil.
"He's growing a healthy crop of
black-eyed peas," Fox said.
In the past, restoring ailing lakes re-
quired removing the muck and find-
ing a spoil site to put it. Muck is not
healthy habitat for plants or fish when
it's spread over a lake bottom, but
once it's dried out, it can support life.
Meanwhile, stripping away the lay-


er of muck on the lake bed exposes
sand and seeds that germinate and es-
tablish the healthy plant life that's a
crucial component of the food chain
that nurtures a world-class fishery and
other nature-based recreation.
FWC Chairman Rodney Barreto
said folding the island-building pro-
ject into the lake-restoration project
reflects the innovative approach it
will take to maintain the natural char-
acter of Florida over the next half-
century.
"The FWC's new report, 'Wildlife
2060: What's at stake for Florida?'
explains the pressures Florida's natur-
al systems will be under during the


next 50 years as the state's population
doubles to 36 million," Barreto said.
"We will have to be diligent and cre-
ative and develop alternative protec-
tion and management ideas, because
we can expect development to take
over wilderness and wetland habitats
equal to the entire land area of Ver-
mont."
The recent rains from tropical
storms have brought water levels back
up on Lake. Okeechobee, and with
that, Fox is pleased to see that plants,
such'as the native submerged plant
coontail, is coming back in healthy,
sustainable amounts.
"This is good stuff," Fox said.

FWC offers free duck


hunting workshop

Waterfowl hunting may well be one of Florida's best
kept secrets. Wetlands cover vast expanses of the state,
and much of this habitat is open and available to the pub-
lic for duck hunting.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) wants to help open up the world of duck
hunting, to newcomers to the state or anyone else inter-
ested in the sport, by holding its free waterfowl hunting
workshop on Saturday, Oct. 25, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
in Palm Bay.
The popular workshop will cover all the basics and
more: hunting ethics, waterfowl identification, waterfowl
organizations and associations, places to hunt, decoys
and patterns, shotguns and ammunition, boats and mo-
tors, clothing and camouflage, and retriever training and
handling.
Large numbers of migratory ducks winter here, includ-
ing ring-necked ducks, scaup, teal, wood ducks and
wigeons. In addition, the state has four species of year-
round resident ducks: mottled ducks (also called Florida
ducks), wood ducks, black-bellied whistling-ducks, and.
fulvous whistling-ducks.
Because of the easy access to hunting areas and a
hunter harvest success rate that is nearly double the na-
tional average, Florida is simply a great place to hunt
ducks.
Instructors for the workshop are FWC waterfowl biolo-
gist Ron Bielefeld and Florida Ducks Unlimited state
council and conservation chair Capt. Jeff Kraynik.
"This is an interactive workshop for both new and ex-
perienced duck hunters," Bielefeld said. "Our goal is to
exch nge information and experiences and learn from
each other."
The workshop will be at the St. Johns River Water
Management District Office, 525 Community College
Parkway SE, Palm Bay.
Sponsors are Featherflage Camo, Hi-Viz Sights,
Dokken Dead Fowl Trainers and Rehydrate Tablets.
For more information, call Bielefeld at 772-388-9880
or Kraynik at 321-725-3456.

Alligators, crocodile found


in Jacksonville residence


One Jacksonville man was arrest-
ed, and a warrant was issued for a
second suspect for keeping four al-
ligators and a crocodile at their Ba-
yard residence.
An anonymous tip led Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) investigators
to the back yard of Robert S.
Hayes, 55, and Scott Hayes, 26.
"Whefn we responded to the resi-
dence, there were alligators and a
crocodile in a concrete fish pond
with a three-foot fence around it,"
said FWC Investigator Kevin Lar-
son.
The crocodile was identified as a
New Guinea crocodile, which is
not a native species in Florida.
Neither man had permits to pos-
sess the reptiles. Larson, along with
FWC officers Alex Obritis and J.J.
Thurne, caught the four alligators
and the crocodile. According to
Larson, both men claimed they did-
n't know how the alligators got into
the pond.


"Mr. Hayes did tell us they fed
the reptiles live chickens," Larson
said. "They would put corn around
the pond and then put a chicken in
the enclosure to eat the corn. The
gators and crocodile would then eat
the chicken."
Additional information devel-
oped during the investigation indi-
cated the alligators were from the
wild, and the crocodile may have
been stolen from the St. Augustine
Alligator Farm, according.to FWC
investigators.
Larson met David Drysdale, the
owner of the alligator farm, who
explained that if the animal had
come from the alligator farm, its
staff could identify it. The value of
the crocodile was estimated at
about $2,500.
"The crocodile was positively
identified as belonging to the
farm," Larson said.
The crocodile was returned to the
alligator farm, where the alligators
were also delivered for safekeep-


ing.
Robert Hayes was arrested Sept.
23 and charged with four misde-
meanor counts of possession of an
American alligator and one felony
charge of possessing a crocodile.
Scott Hayes is still at large. The
warrant issued for his arrest lists
the same five charges.
qThe investigation into the theft of
the crocodile is ongoing.
"Working closely with concerned
and knowledgeable citizens fre-
quently leads to more successful
resolution of cases," said. Capt.'
Marty Redmond, FWC investiga-
tions supervisor.
Anyone with information about
this case or other wildlife law vio-
lations is encouraged to call 1-888-
404-FWCC (3922). Wildlife law vi-
olations also can be reported on-
line at MyFWC.com/law/Alert/
.
Callers can remain anonymous and
may be eligible for a reward if the
information results in an arrest.

FWC biologist bags FOWA and Bass Pro Shops award


Paul Shafland, director of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission's (FWC)
Exotic Fisheries Lab, captured
this year's "Pass It On" Award
from the Florida Outdoor.Writ-
ers Association (FOWA) and
Bass Pro Shops.
He bagged the honor at
FOWA's annual confer-
ence Sept. 13.
The "Pass It On" Award
is an achievement award
created by Bass Pro Shops
to recognize individuals
who have gone the extra
mile or devoted their'lives
to introduce others to the
joys of the outdoors.
"Recognition by Flori-
da's premier professional
outdoor writers makes this
especially meaningful,"
Shafland said. "They are
my professional peers, and
that makes this award a
high honor."
Shafland began his de-.
votion to the outdoors 34
years ago when he started
working as a biologist at
the then-Florida Game
and Fresh Water Fish
Commission, now FWC.
"I've always been inter-
ested in fishing, and that
developed into a strong
professional desire to un-
derstand and help manage
Florida's native and non-
native fisheries."
Shafland said he is par-
ticularly passionate about
enhancing Florida's fresh-
water fisheries, especially ,
the urban-based butterfly
peacock bass fishery.
During his career at i'
FWC, his most notable
contribution has been in- Pat
production of butterfly Ph


peacock bass in South Florida
waters. In 1984, in an effort to
fight an exploding harmful
nonnative fish population,
Shafland and his team got ap-
proval to introduce the bass.
While the butterfly peacock
bass is a nonnative species, it
was released in South Florida


only after extensive research
determined there would be no
ill effects on native fish popu-
lations. The plan was to use the
species to prey on undesirable
nonnatives and produce desir-
able fishing opportunities. It is
the only nonnative fish legally
and intentionally released by


the FWC.
In the 24 years since the re-
lease of the butterfly peacock
bass, exotic fish populations in
South .Florida have declined,
and the butterfly peacock bass
is one of the most popular
sport fish for freshwater an-
glers. Anglers spend millions


of dollars annually to catch this
fish.
"I appreciate everyone es-
pecially the thousands of an-
glers, young and old who
have made Florida's urban-
Sbased butterfly peacock fishery
the success it is," Shafland
said..

Physical therapy essential to sports injury recovery


Sports injuries happen to the best of us. For proof of that, one need look
no further than professional sports leagues, where injuries have derailed
seasons, careers, and become as much'a part of the game as bats, balls,
cleats, and spikes. 4
As proof that injuries are a big part of athletics, consider the case of the
2008 New York Yankees. Boasting the highest payroll ($209 million) in the
history of Major League Baseball, they could also likely claim the dubious
distinction of paying the most money to injured players. Less than two
months into the season, the Yankees had already seen the game's highest
paid player, Alex Rodriguez (making $28 million in 2008) spend two weeks
on the disabled list, while catcher Jorge Posada (earning $13.1 million in
2008), spent significantly more time on the sidelines unable to perform.
What's more, pitcher Carl Pavano, making $11 million in 2008, was not
expected to throw a single pitch for the team during the 2008 season.
What professional sports injuries illustrate is that no one, not even the best
and brightest athletes in the world, is immune to injury. But avoiding injury
isn't necessarily as hard as it seems. Knowing what sports injuries are and
how to react to them should one occur is a big part of recovering and
avoiding further injury in the future.
What Are Sports Injuries?
You don't have to be a professional or even amateur athlete to suffer a
sports injury. In fact, many times those most susceptible to sports injury are
people who simply don't know what they are and how they're caused. For
the sake of brevity, sports injuries in this article will be defined as injuries to
the musculoskeletal system, including muscles, bones, and tissues such as
cartilage. The most common sports injuries include:
Sprains: A sprain occurs when the connective tissue that joins the end of
one bone with another is stretched or torn. Those connective tissues are
known as ligaments. Sprains are caused by trauma such as a fall or blow to
the body that knocks a joint out of position. Ankles, knees and wrists are
most vulnerable to sprains.
Strains: A strain occurs when a muscle or tendon is pulled, torn or
twisted. Strains are noncontact injuries, such as those that occur from
overstretching. A common example of a strain is a muscle spasm.
Knee injuries: According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services, the knee is the most commonly injured joint. Orthopedic surgeons
see more than 5.5 million people annually for knee injuries, which can
include runner's knee (pain or tenderness close to the knee cap at the front
side of the knee), tendinitis and iliotibial band syndrome (pain on the outer
side of the knee). Severe knee injuries often include bone bruises or damage
to the cartilage or ligaments.
Shin splints: Shin splints occur when there is pain along the large bone

in the front of the lower leg, known as the tibia or shin bone, Shin splints
most commonly occur in runners, especially those who are just starting a
running program.
How Are Sports Injuries Treated?
For severe sports injuries that require a doctor's care and supervision,
athletes will need to discuss a plan of rehabilitation. For less severe injuries
that don't require surgery, physical therapy might be enough. Physical
therapists are trained health care professionals who are skilled in developing
rehabilitation programs to facilitate your recovery. These programs can range
from relatively easy to highly difficult. While this isn't the case with all
sports injuries, many require a two-ptonged approach to physical therapy.
Rehabilitation: Rehabilitation is often rooted in a gradual exercise
program that is designed to return the injured body part back to normal. Each
injury is different, but an early part of most rehabilitation will focus on
getting the injured body part moving as soon as possible. This is meant to
speed up the healing process..This movement does not involve aggressively
moving the injured part. Instead, it's more likely going to be range-of-motion
exercises where you then move to stretching and strengthening the injured
part.
These beginning stages are often dull, but discipline is required. Physical
therapists aim for you to progress through rehabilitation, and that's not going
to be done overnight. Your program is likely to involve exercises for
flexibility, endurance and strength, none of which are completely recovered
in a moment's time. Patience and perseverance will be essential factors as to
how successful your rehabilitation goes, and those are entirely up to you.
Rest: The other important element of physical therapy is rest. You'll need
a proper balance between rest and rehabilitation, and adhering to the rest
portion of your physical therapy is just as important as sticking to the
rehabilitation schedule.
