The churches in Wellborn provide plenty of things to do in Wellborn, which cost nothing and do
not necessitate a long drive. For example, on Wednesday mornings, seniors gather at the
Wellborn Methodist Church fellowship hall to enjoy a morning of bingo, fellowship and lunch.


WELLBORN NEWS


Nothing to do here? Please.


By Bonnie Scott


he churches e -
of Wellborn
have been
an integral part of the
history of this
community since the
pioneers settled here
in the nineteenth
century up to and
including today.
Those early settlers
acknowledged their
dependency on God
and gathered together
to worship even
before they erected
church buildings and
supported pastors.
Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, located
on old 90, is recognized as the oldest
established church in Wellborn dating
back to 185.6. The church buildings then
and now not only provided a physical
location to gather for worship; but also
were also available for various
community activities. The Corinth
Masonic Lodge also used the second
floor of the old Mount Beulah Baptist
Church, Many churches today have
fellowship halls or buildings available for
a variety of youth:activities, covered dish
suppers, parties and Christian
entertainment of all types.
Unfortunately, one often hears the,
complaint, "There's nothing to do here."
The churches in Wellborn provide plenty
of things to do in Wellborn, which cost
nothing and do not necessitate along
drive. For example, on Wednesday
mornings, seniors gather at the Wellboin
Methodist Church fellowship hall to
enjoy a morning of bingo, fellowship and
lunch. Most of the churches have some
type of wholesome entertainment at
various times of the year geared to
children, youth,,and/or adults to-which ',
anyfne~id ii~ ited at no charge.; ;Thse ,'' :
filight fiCluA inbvies, themed and/or
holiday parties, vacation Bible school,
and some have in the past sponsored Girl,
Scout and Boy Scout troops. Most of"
these are advertised in the newspaper,
Wellborn Whisper, posters and word of
mouth.
Wellborn Baptist Church also serves as
the polling location for Precinct 12.

0 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK


Listed below are a few concerns of mine as an experienced leader-
and educator.
1. I will bring back the fun and excitement of teaching and learning in
Suwannee County Schools.
2. Recruiting and hiring of qualified teachers across all ethnic
backgrounds.
3. I will work to improve and restore insurance premium benefits and
contracts for present and retired personnel without the use of a Special
Master, whereby, saving taxpayers' money.
4. I will work diligently to find the financial resources needed to develop
and maintain a sustainable technological program.for upgrading
computers, LCDs, Elmos, and all resources and supplies needed for
our students and teachers in the classroom.
5. I will place emphasis on safety and discipline with students in the
classroom, on the buses and at all school related functions.
6. I will bring an International Baccalaureate program to Suwannee
County; hopefully at Branford. This will greatly enhance our educational
program and "Bridge the Gap Toward A World Class Education."
7. I will expand the course offerings at Branford and Suwannee-Hamilton
Vocational centers.

Operation Christmas Child

Area families waste no time spreading Christmas cheer months before the holidays


U.S. kids have; no time to waste helping to bring.joy to
millions of needy boys.and girls this holiday season.
Sending hope to hurting children worldwide is a full-
time, year-round effort that requires the contagious com-
passion of local Suwannee Valley Area families right
now!
Operation Christmas Child, the world's largest Christ-
mas project, is calling on local kids, families, churches,
businesses, schools, scout troops and civic organizations
to join this massive effort by sending shoe box gifts to
children overseas who are suffering from disease,


famine, war, terrorism and natural disaster.
"My shoe box gift might be the only gift a child has
ever received," said Suzy Smith, who has been happily
packing shoe box gifts for the past four years. "A shoe
box can make a difference. It let's children know that
someone really does care about them."
Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child, a project of
international Christian relief organization Samaritan's
Purse, has collected and hand-delivered more than 61
million shoe box gifts to hurting kids in some 130 coun-
tries.


"This is a wonderful chance to teach children in this
country about generosity and compassion, and bring
hope and joy to hurting children in other countries," said
Colleen Ruehl, area coordinator for Operation Christmas
Child.
Why now months before the holiday season?
Although National Collection Week is Nov. 17-24, Op-
eration Christmas Child is not limited to just one week a
year or during the holiday season. It is a year-round pro-
ject, requiring months of organization and preparation to
reach millions of kids around the world. Volunteers and
shoe box gifts are needed during all seasons to help
spread Christmas cheer and the spirit of giving that lasts
all year long.
How to help:
Prepare Enlist families, churches, community groups
and businesses to take part in making shoe box gifts for
needy children.
Pack Fill shoe boxes with toys, necessity items,
school supplies, candy and a letter of encouragement.
Process Sign up to join thousands 6f Operation
Christmas Child volunteers this fall, at one of hundreds
of collection sites across Florida, to collect and prepare
millions of shoe box gifts for delivery to underprivileged
children on six continents.

of Suwannee

"Spirit Day" with food drive Valley is a


Submitted
GTE Federal Credit Union
conducts its annual United Way
employee giving campaign in the
spring; however, the company,
like many others with a fall.
community giving initiative,
conducted a fall food drive. The
GTE employees at each of the
three offices invited their
members to bring donated food to
any of the GTE offices through
Oct. 13. On Monday, Oct. 16,
which was designated as the
credit union's "Spirit Day," all of
the donated food was delivered to
United Way of Suwannee Valley
for distribution to the Food Bank
of Suwannee Valley, which makes
the food available to community
agencies and church pantries
which are food bank members.
GTE Branch Manager Regina


Hester arranged the food drive
through the United Way of
Suwannee Valley. "Annually, our
office staff takes on a community
service project organized through
the United Way. In the past our
branch employees have
participated in a community work
project on their day off for
Columbus Day. This year, we
elected to conduct a community
service project in which the
communities we serve can
participate with us. Together, we
can do so much more," stated
Hester.
United Way of Suwannee
Valley initiated the food bank in
2004 after identifying as an unmet
need the absence of a food bank
to serve local community
agencies and church food
pantries. A grant secured by


United Way provided for the
operational costs through most of
2005 to provide a period to
cultivate community support and
member agencies. Arrangements
were made for the food bank to
transition to become a program of
Catholic Charities, an existing
community agency with a mission
including feeding the hungry.
Community agencies and church
food pantries can investigate
participation in the food bank by
contacting Food Bank Manager
Scott Elkins at 386-755-5683.
In the United Way of Suwannee
Valley service area there are three
GTE locations, all of Which are
managed by Hester. These
branches include' White Springs,
Jasper and Lake City.
GTE Federal Credit Union
enjoys a long history dating back


to when the Federal Credit Union
Act was signed into law in 1934.
Originally the credit union served
what was then the Peninsular
Telephone Company in 1935. In
1958, the name changed to
General Telephone Employees
Federal Credit Union. The credit
unioh experienced its final name
change in 1971 when it became
GTE Federal Credit Union.
United Way of Suwannee

those needs through United Way

Suwannee Democrat


Let's



start


here

The presidential
election is six days
away. Whatever the
polls say, it's still
too close to call -
and probably will
be right up until
Tuesday. Too many
times have the pun-
dits been wrong, or
the mood of the
electorate suddenly
.shifted.
But we're not con-
cerned here with
who wins. We're
worried about the
aftermath.
Our nation's been
bitterly split for
longer than we can
remember. The time
for the rift to be,
healed is Nov. 5.
Let's start in Live
Oak. Who knows.
Maybe the senti-I
ment will spread.

By Dwain Walden
It's funny how the
mind works sometimes. I
was sitting in the porch
swing reading about a
UCLA executive who
had plead guilty to traf-
ficking in.human body
parts. He was making big
bucks selling bones and other stuff from
cadavers.
Now this is a very serious, morbid, cal-
lous kind of thing. It is disrespectful to
those who have donated their bodies to
science.
But even so, I could not control where
my mind would go, and all of a sudden I
was singing an old John Prine song called
"Please Don't Bury Me."
For those who don't know, John Prine is
a folk singer. Some folks like him, some
folks don't. I do.
Anyway the singer wakes up, puts on his
slippers, goes into the kitchen, slips, bangs
his head on the floor and dies.
Now given this scenario, it would seem
the fodder for a very short song. And some
songs should be short. I was listening to
one on the sound system in the gym while
working out the other day, and I thought it


would never end. The same lyrics were re-
peated over and over. There was a time
when that would have meant the record
was stuck. But today, I think it just means
that vocabularies are very limited.
Anyway, it's the chorus of John's song
that came to me after reading this morbid
news.
It goes in part likes this:
"Please don't bury me
down in the cold, cold ground.
No I'd druther have 'em' cut me up and
spread my parts around.
Throw my brain in hurricane and the
blind can have my eyes.
And the deaf can take both of my ears, if
they don't. mind the size.
Give my stomach to Milwaukee, if they
run out of beer.
...Hand me down my walking cane, I
cannot tell a lie.
Send my mouth way down South and
kiss my "a...." goodbye."
Now sometimes when a song gets in my
head, it stays there all day long. It doesn't
matter what else might be going on. What
I mean is, the next bit of news was about
how people were losing lots of money in-
their 401ks because of the poor economy.
And there I was singing that part about


"sending my mouth, way down South" and
bidding my posterior adieu. Well, maybe
the lyric was still applicable to the 401K
thing. I guess it's all about perception.
Maybe I should have been-singing that
old Johnny Cash song, "Cotton is down to
a quarter a pound, and I"m busted." But I
think my mind was trying to provide me
some comic relief.
The very next day I was trying to make
a phone call to Chicago to check on my
401K. I kept getting told that I could push
certain numbers if I had specific inquiries.
And eventually, a robot told me that if I
wanted to speak to a warm body, they
would try to find me one. They never did.
I'm thinking someone must have sold all
the warm body parts.
Anyway, I got to thinking about deputy
Barney Fife just picking up the telephone
and simply saying, "Hello Sara. Would
you get me Juanita oter at the diner?"
So the rest of the day I was whistling the
theme to "The Andy Griffith Show.." And
having become very frustrated trying to
call Chicago, the character Otis Campbell
sort of stuck in my mind for a while.

Suwannee Elementary School announces Silver Spoon Awards winners


By Stevan Bass
Suwannee Elementary
School (SES) classes
*participated in the Silver
Spoons Awards program
which promotes good
behavior in the cafeteria
during lunch.
The following classes are
to be congratulated for
being the best behaved class
in the cafeteria during lunch
for the first nine weeks
grading period:


Second Grade Sil er
Spoon Champion Becky
Carter's class
Third Grade Silver Spoon
Champions Angela
Braun's class and Sheryl
Daniels' class
These three classes have
consistently been awarded
on a daily basis with a
"Silver Spoon" for their
exemplary behavior during
the lunch period at SES.
Lunchroom supervisors


report they see a much more
well-behaved student body
during lunch than in
previous years.
Donna Long, principal of
SES, shared this idea with
the facuhy and put the
program in place. During a
visit she made to another
district, she saw this. idea in
action, said it looked fairly
simple to implement and
monitor, and yet appeared
to Pe very effective in


having students self-
monitor their behaviors.
Silver Spoons are the magic
which created an enjoyable
atmosphere in the school's
cafeteria this year.
SES invites guests who
come to have lunch with
students, to sit in the
spacious SES lobby and
enjoy lunch. There are
tables, chairs and some
decorations generally on
display for visitors to enjoy.

New drug for depression offers advantage
Depression is a chronic condition involving both the mind and body.
Although some persons who are depressed may only experience one
episode of depression, many experience recurring episodes
throughout life. Typically, the symptoms of depression include
decreased interest in daily activities, feelings of hopelessness, and
difficulty sleeping. A correct diagnosis is dependent on the presence
of a depressed mood during most days for at least 2 weeks, as well as
a number of symptoms characterizing the condition. Although the
exact cause is unknown, biochemical changes in the brain, genetics,
and environmental factors all may play a role in the triggering of a
depressive episode.
Non-drug options available, such as psychological counseling, may
.improve depression for some individuals. Medications that may be
prescribed include fluoxetine (Prozac), paroxetine (Paxil), and
sertraline (Zoloft). These drugs generally cause fewer side effects
than other types of antidepressants. A new drug, desvenlafaxine
(Pristique), may offer the advantage of decreased drug interactions,
when compared with another similar medication, yenlafaxine (Effexor
XR). Drugs for depression may not improve mood for up to S to 12
weeks, although some persons may experience benefit earlier.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: I have allergies. Should I be aware of
any possible dental implications?
A. Allergies can have an impact on your
dental health, particularly if you take
antihistamines for relief. Just as they help
dry up your sinuses, so too can they
':nliltui- 10 dryness in the mouth.
Anything that reduces the flow of saliva
can render you less able to naturally
wash away food particles. That, in turn,
can lead to a buildup of plaque and a
problem with cavities.
As with any medication you take for any
condition, advise your dentist if you take
.an antihistamine for allergies. Your dentist
may recommend that you increase your
intake of water, or that you suck on sugar-
free candy to keep your mouth moist.
Another concern is that if you are allergic
to one substance, say pollen, you maybe
allergic to other things. That could include
drugs that your dentist may normally
prescribe, such as penicillin, for an
ailment or an infection. Allergic reactions
can be as mild as itchy eyes and a runny
nose. However, allergic reactions can
also be more serious. You should always
inform your dentist about your general
health and especially about any allergies.

Sammy's still


Continued From Page 1A

Bright, of Live Oak, met
Sesar at a concert after he
and the musician began '
communicating online in
2005. The two have be-
come drumming buddies,
of sorts.
When Sammy met Pais-
ley backstage at a concert
in Tampa, Sammy handed
him a signed drumstick and
asked the singer to give it
to Sesar.
"When I got home I
found him (Sesar) on my-
space.com. That's how it
happened," Sammy said.
Sammy said Sesar
thanked him for the drum-
stick and requested the oth-
er one.
"He told me he needed ,
the other one to beat
around on his legs," Sam-
my said.
At a Savannah, Ga., con-
cert, Sammy and Sesar ex-
changed drumsticks. At an-
other concert, Sesar took
Sammy backstage after-


wards and gave him a one
and a half hour drum les-
son that his mother video
recorded.
"Most people are looking
at Brad Paisley" during the
concerts, said Sammy's
mother, Ann Bright. "(Sam-
my's) eyes are glued on
Ben Sesar."
Ann said after Sesar
learned that Sammy was
looking for a particular
brand of drums that he
used, he offered to sell his
to Sammy at a discount af-
ter his tour. Sammy has
since bought three of
Sesar's drum sets.
"You just can't go to the
store and buy these," Ann
Bright said of the custom-
made kits designed for
Sesar.
Sesar has also taught
Sammy various tricks, such
as how to play cross stick,
a method of making make
the sticks bounce. He has
also taught Sammy the role
that math plays in reading
music.


got th(
Ann Bright said Sam-
my's inspiration to play
came from watching his
dad Tom Bright, who has
played guitar in numerous
bands over the years. She
would video "Suwannee
River Band," his group at
the time, practicing, and
the toddler Sammy would
bang on pots and pans in
front of the television.
"Instead of watching car-
toons like normal kids, he
would have me put in one
of those videos, and he
would play in front of the
TV," she said.
Sammy has been called
"the little drummer boy"
since age 4. From time to
time he would sit in for the
drummer for "Suwannee
River Band."
His mother said the audi-
ence would chant, "Sam-
my, Sammy, Sammy," to
get him to play a few
songs.
Ann Bright said her son's
talent became evident at
age 3 and has progressed


e beat

ever since.
"He can outplay some
grown men," she said.
"It's a fun thing to do.
You can have fun and get
paid," Sammy said of play-
ing drums.
At one event Sammy got
paid $100 plus $60 in tips.
He was filling in for his
dad's drummer in the local
band "Justin Case."
Sammy currently plays
in the group "Generations
Band." Tom Bright is the
lead guitarist The group
will play at the Suwannee
County Animal Shelter's
Fall Animal Festival at the
fairgrounds in Live Oak
Nov. 8-9.
"I feel so amazed
that I have a lot of
fans," Sammy said.
"They think I'm re-
ally good and they
think I'm going to
become famous
someday."

and Fire Department were
also present with more
games and fun. The Ex-
tension Service's display
featured a butterfly exhibit
with live butterflies, and
the Suwannee Regional
Library and the Garden
Club provided crafts in
which children could pro-
duce pumpkin faces, fall
wreathes or bags.
Tim Alcorn's train pro-
vided lots of fun for the
little ones and some rode
his hand-made train again
and again. Photographer'
Tammy Johns was busy
snapping pumpkin patch
portraits.
Entries in the pumpkin
baking contest looked too
good to eat, and th6
judges had to make some
tough decisions in award-
ing the first, second and
third place ribbons. "Peo-
ples Choice" hand-painted
crafts generated lots of in-
terest: a hand-painted
pumpkin carriage took the
"Best of Show" prize.
Dairy Queen's "Curly"
added to the fun by pass-
ing out free ice cream
coupons.
A little past noon at
Millennium Park, students
from Sharon's School of
Dance performed two
outstanding numbers.


These young dancers
helped drive away the
clouds, and soon after, the
sun came shining through.
Herold White and the
County Masters then
played. The entertainment
continued all afternoon as
people came and went all

doors and the festivities.
Florida folk singers Kelly

Frances Marshall; Cyndi
K and her contemporary
band; country singers Bill
Todd, Reba Ward, Linda

ence.
A full-sized train engine
on wheels transported at-
tendees to and from the
Historical Museum all af-
ternoon. The entries in the
Artists' Guild art competi-
tions, both student and
adult divisions, were also
on display. The Artists'
Guild also staged a cake-
walk. Funnel cakes, hot
dogs, hamburgers, pulled
pork sandwiches, snacks,

'Dogs crushed



by the Tigers



SBut still have a


S.chance at playoffs


S By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

The Suwannee Bulldogs (2-
S5) lost their District 3-3A game
SThursday night to the Tigers of
SAndrew Jackson High (9-0) in
: Jacksonville, 40-3.
"We're still looking for play-
ing that perfect game," head
C coach Tommy Chambers said
by phone Monday. "We still
Sfook to perform to what we
Think their ability is."
"Odd as it is, if we w\in our
next two games, we could get
that runner-up spot," Chambers.
Said.
The 'Dogs would have a
Chance at the playoffs if they
-. beat their next two games
against the'Baker County
SWildcats (6-2) and the Bishop
Kenny Crusaders (4-3).
S "We're trying to convince
the team that we still got
something to shoot for,"
Chambers noted.
Quarterback David
Campbell went 13 of 25 for
121 yards. &i was also the
leader in rushing with 11 car-
ries for 35 yards, but was
Sacked nine times for minus 47


yards.
The offense had minus seven
yards for rushing for the night..
"We didn't do a, good job
.blocking the offensive line,"
Chambers said.
The 'Dogs failed to perform
defensively,.with an intercept-
ed pass on their first offensive
play that led to a Tigers score.
The Tigers also scored
against the 'Dogs on a punt re-
turn. Chambers said the Tigers
also scored twice off a defen-
sive back who failed to cover
his guy.
Chambers said out the six
touchdowns the Tigers scored,
the 'Dogs simply gave them
four of them.
"They are a good ball club,
third in the state right now but
I don't think they played as
good as they could have,"
Chambers said about the
Tigers.
The only score. of the night
came from an Austin
O'Connor field goal early in
the game.
The 'Dogs take on the Wild-
cats Friday night at Paul Lang-
ford Stadium in a District 3-3A
game.

Bulldog Review
By Tom Daniels

The Bulldogs took it on the
chin from Jackson 40-3 but
all's not lost. The 'Dogs play
. Baker and Bishop Kenny. Two
wins would probably give them


a chance for runier-up. Having
seen Jackson I don't think any
team in our district can match
their speed. They were a team
that will go far in the playoffs.
They could use more balance
but they can score from
anywhere.
Once again the 'Dogs could
not match up with the speed
and experience of the 18
returning seniors of the
Jackson Tigers. The 'Dogs
moved the ball but motion
penalties and sacks came at the
most inopportune times. To
beat Baker the defense is going
to have to stop the run. If the
'Dogs can give Campbell some
time and.Perry is healthy the
Baker game is very winnable,
We won't beat anyone if we

Eighth Group of:Endangered Whooping Crar

Depart. on Ultralight-guided Flight to Florida


On October 17, 2008, Four-
teen young whooping cranes
began their ultralight-led mi-
gration from central Wiscon-
sin's Necedah National
Wildlife Refuge (NWR) and
traveled five miles. Wind and
rain has grounded the cranes in
Juneau County, Wisconsin,
for the last three days.
This is the eighth group of
birds to take part in a landmark
project led by the Whooping
Crane Eastern Partnership
(WCEP), an international
coalition of public and private
groups that is reintroducing
this highly imperiled species in
eastern North America, part of
its historic range. There are
now 68 whooping cranes in the
wild in eastern North America
thanks to WCEP's efforts.
The four ultralight aircraft
and juvenile cranes will be fol-
lowing a new route this year,
passing through Wisconsin,
Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee,
Alabama, and Georgia to reach
the birds' wintering habitats at
Chassahowitzka and St.
Marks National Wildlife
Refuges along Florida's
Gulf Coast.
"We are excited about the
migration this year," said
Joe Duff, CEO of Operation
Migration, the WCEP part-
ner that leads the ultralight
migration. "The new mi-
gration route offers oppor-
tunities for increased out-
reach and conservation edu-
cation. Also, we know it
will be safer, and we hope it
will be faster."
The fourteen ultralight-
led cranes will be split into
two groups upon arrival in
Florida--one group will
winter at Chassahowitzka
NWR and one group will
spend the winter at. St.
Marks NWR. The decision
to split the birds comes af-
ter the loss in February
2007 of 17 of the 18 Class
of 2006 whooping cranes in
a severe storm at Chassa-
howitzka NWR. WCEP


hopes the two separate winter-
ing locations will help reduce
the risk of another catastrophic
loss.
* In addition to the 14 birds
being led south by ultralights,
biologists from the Internation-
al Crane Foundation and the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
reared six whooping cranes at
Necedah NWR. The birds will
be released in the company of
older cranes from whom the
young birds will learn the mi-
gration route. This is the
fourth year WCEP has used
this- Direct Autumn Release
method, which supplements the
ultralight migrations.
Whooping cranes that take
part in the ultralight and Direct
Autumn Release reihtroduc-
tions are hatched at the U.S.
Geological Survey's Patuxent
Wildlife Research Center in
Laurel, Md., and at the Interna-
tional Crane Foundation in
Baraboo, Wis. Chicks are
raised under a strict isolation
protocol and to ensure the birds


remain wild, handlers adhere to
a no-talking rule and wear cos-
tumes designed to mask the hu-
man form.
In 2001, project partner Op-
eration Migration's pilots led
the first whooping crane
chicks, conditioned to follow
their ultralight aircraft surro-
gates, south from Necedah
NWR to Chassahowitzka
NWR. Each subsequent year,
WCEP biologists and pilots.
have conditioned and guided
additional groups of juvenile
cranes to Chassahowitzka
SNWR. Once led south, the
cranes are able to migrate on
their own, without assistance,
in following years.
In the spring and fall, project
staff from the International
Crane Foundation and the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service track
and monitor the released cranes
in an effort to learn as much as
possible about their unassisted
journeys and the habitat choic-
es they make both along the
way and on their summering


Si -.,-e s l...


and wintering grounds.
Most graduated classes of
Swooping cranes spend the
summer in central Wisconsin,
where they use areas on or near
the Necedah NWR, as well as
other public and private lands.
Whooping cranes were on
the verge of extinction in the
1940s. Today, there are only
about 525 birds in existence,
375 of them in the wild. Aside
from the 68 birds reintroduced
by WCEP, the only other mi-
grating population of whooping
cranes nests at the Wood Buf-
falo National Park in the
Northwest Territories of Cana-
da and winters at the Aransas
National Wildlife Refuge on
the Texas Gulf Coast. A non-
migrating flock of approxi-
mately 35 birds lives year-
round in the central Florida
Kissimmee re-
gion.

Black-eyed Florida Mullet


If you are looking for ways to stretch those
food dollars and feed your family a healthy
diet, consider Florida mullet. Mullet is a
great value-in the current economic climate
because it has historically been one of the
more wallet-friendly seafood products. It is
also a good source of protein and Omega-3
fatty acid.
There is plenty of Florida mullet to go
around. Florida commercial fishermen har-
vested over 7 million pounds last year. Nov
is a good time to enjoy it because the mullet
harvests in Florida peak from now through
December. If your seafood market or grocer
does not have it, encourage them to do so.
For the best possible taste, choose fresh-
caught mullet. The fish should be firm with a
fresh sea breeze aroma and no discoloration.
The eyes should be clear, not cloudy. Mullet
typically has a moderate to full flavor and a
firm texture. For a milder flavor, skin the fil-
lets and remove the dark, lateral line that
runs through the meat before cooking. When
purchasing whole fish, you should buy 3/4 to


1. pound per serving. If you N
decide to buy it cleaned and ,t ',
dressed or filleted, purchase ,''
about 1/2 pound per serv- 1-
ing. Fresh fish can be stored S- "'
in the coldest part of your '-'"
refrigerator for up to 2 1
days.
Although many mullet
fans prefer it fried, a variety of healthy
preparation methods work quite well. Try it
baked, broiled, grilled, steamed, poached or
boiled. Just follow these simple guidelines
and be creative with your favorite herbs and
seasonings.
To bake or broil your fish, cook it at 400
F for about 10 minutes per inch of thickness.
Grilled mullet can be quite tasty. As with
all fish, grill it on a well oiled surface 4 to 6
inches above a medium-hot fire. You can
leave the skin on or use a grill basket to keep
the meat from falling through the grill.
To steam mullet, place it in a steamer bas-
ket over simmering liquid. Examples are wa-


ter with vinegar, dry wine, beer or lemon
juice. Cover and cook until the meat is
opaque and flakes easily.
Poach whole cleaned fish or fillets in a
simmering seasoned liquid in a covered
saucepan. Cover and cook until the meat is
opaque and flakes easily.
Boiled mullet is a welcome addition to
soups. Add the raw mullet to the boiling
broth or stock when the soup is almost
done. Reduce the heat and simmer until meat
is opaque and cooked through.
The idea is to be creative when you are
trying to stretch your food budget and stay
healthy. To get you started, try this JeliIh,'i
high protein. non-traditional mullet recipe.

Eighth Group of Endangered Whooping Cranes

Depart on Ultralight-guided Flight to Florida


Continued From Page 3B

cranes, named for their loud and penetrating unison calls,
live and breed in wetland areas, where they feed on
crabs, clams, frogs and aquatic plants. They are distinc-
tive animals, standing five feet tall, with white bodies,
black wing tips and red crowns on their heads.
WCEP asks anyone who encounters a whooping crane
in the wild to please give them the respect and distance
they need. Do not approach birds on foot within 200
yards; try to remain in your vehicle; do not approach in a
vehicle within 100 yards. Also, please remain concealed
and do not speak.loudly enough that the birds can hear
you. Finally, do not trespass on private property'in an
attempt to view whooping cranes.
Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership founding mem-
bers are the International Crane Foundation, Operation
Migration, Inc., Wisconsin Department of Natural Re-
sources, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Geo-
logical Survey's Patuxent Wildlife Research Center and
National Wildlife Health Center, the National Fish and
Wildlife Foundation, the Natural Resources Foundation
of Wisconsin, and the International Whooping Crane Re-


cover Team.
Many other flyway states, provinces, private individu-
als and conservation groups have joined forces with and
support WCEP by donating resources, funding and per-
sonnel. More than 60 percent of the project's budget
comes from private sources in the form of grants, public


donations and corporate
sponsors.

Your




HeartM


Show you care during difficult times


A serious or life-changing health care issue will touch everyone's life
eventually. A sibling is diagnosed with cancer. A colleague's baby is born
too soon. A neighbor suffers a heart attack. An accident severely injures a
niece. Family, friends and neighbors want to help, but even the best of
intentions can be waylaid when you don't know what to do or fear being
too intrusive.
"In the midst of a health care crisis, people live in a slow-motion world
filled with fear, uncertainty and critical health care decisions. They simply
can't focus on or may even forget about day-to-day activities," said Dr.
Jesse Gruman, president of the Center for the Advancement of Health.
"The burdens they're facing cause action paralysis. Friends and family
can best help by just doing whatever they see that needs doing. That will
dramatically reduce stress for a hurting family."
Many normal daily activities get set aside during days and weeks
consumed with medical tests, doctor visits, surgeries, physical therapy or
chemotherapy. Here are five specific ways to help until life resumes some -
sense of normalcy.
1. Pick Something Specific Starting at Home
Try not to ask the general question, "How can I help?" Instead, take
responsibility for a specific task and tell the family when it will be
completed. Even asking, "Could I mow your lawn?" may result in a
gentle brush-off for fear of imposition. Telling the person, "I'm going to
mow your lawn every Thursday" breaks down reservations.
If your neighbor is away at the hospital day and night, get their
newspapers, mail or deliveries. Water their flowers and plants.Turn the
lights on and off to provide added security.
The mail, laundry and dust are bound to pile up when there's limited time
at home. Offer to clean the house, fold laundry or hire a cleaning person
for the tasks.
2. Simplify Communication
Keeping people informed of an individual's medical condition and
progress also can be a major, and often hidden, stressor.
"It is emotionally draining and physically exhausting for family members
of a patient to repeat details of the treatment progress or latest test results
with 10 people every day," said Sona Mehring of CaringBridge. "It can be
overwhelming and takes time away from their loved one the person who
really needs their attention," CaringBridge is a nonprofit service
providing free, private and personalized Web sites that serve as
communication and support hubs during health care crises.
If you're close to the affected.family or person,, offer to create a
CaringBridge Web site for them (www.caringbridge.org). It takes two
minutes and is easily updated, keeping all those concerned regardless of
their location apprised of any developments. The site allows an author to
post background on the individual's condition and diagnosis, provide
updates with regular journal entries, post photos, and link to other sites
for medical information. Sites also provide a guestbook for visitors to
post personal notes, prayers and poems. And whenever a journal update is
made to the individual's site, registered visitors receive an e-mail alert.
3. Help With Meals
Provide ready-to-cook meals, frozen and portioned according to the
family's size. And be creative families are too often overwhelmed with
large pasta dishes. Make-and-bake meal preparation stores are extremely
convenient if you don't want to cook,
Gift cards to fast-food or casual dining restaurants always come in handy.
For family members who remain at home, go grocery shopping. Put the
groceries away, and leave a note with meal suggestions for the week.
4. Take Care Of The Rest Of The Family
Maintaining a typical daily routine is unrealistic in the midst of a health
care crisis. Kids, however, still need to go to school or get to after-school
activities. Offer to provide'rides for the kids or dinner for them before
their evening activities.
Giving kids an outlet for fun can help relieve stress and worry. Invite

For those who are touched with a health care crisis, you can take many steps to help
through this difficult time, such as cooking or cleaning
them to a sporting event, the zoo or a movie with your children. Again,
specifically say, "We're picking up Brian at 6:45 for the football game,
and we'll be home at 10." This gives parents kid-free time to decompress,
run errands or catch up on much-needed sleep.
And don't forget about the four-legged family members. Offer to walk or
feed the dog at a specific time each day and follow through.
5. Don't Do It Along
When a crisis strikes, many people truly want to help. Groups can pool
their energy and resources to help spread the responsibilities among many
people to provide help for an extended period of time.


Supporting family, friends and
neighbors through a time of
medical crisis, uncertainty or
prolonged illness can be incredibly
fulfilling, and your efforts will be
d welcome relief during long days.
