City updates rules on alcohol sales


New ordinance
clarifies
requirements
for restaurants

By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com

The city council has
adopted new guidelines for
the sale of alcoholic bever-


ages in full service restau-
rants.
George Curtis, city devel-
opment manager, said the
city decided to clarify its al-
cohol ordinance primarily
due to the recent request
made by the Thunder Alley
Bowling Center to serve
beer and wine coolers on
Sunday. The city denied the
bowling alley's request, say-
ing that while the business


may. contain a food service
facility, it was not consid-
ered a full-service restaurant
and that its primary function
was recreational, with food
service serving as a sec-
ondary function.
Under the previous ordi-
nance, establishments that
are licensed to sell alcohol
must serve full-course meals

School board bucks Boatright, won't fire Smith


Later reassigned to custodial duties, however


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

The Suwannee County School Board
last week denied Superintendent Walter
Boatright's request to fire the district's
director of food services for what he


termed "gross insubordination." Days
later, however, the woman was reas-
signed to custodial duties, though her ti-
tle, salary and benefits were unaffected.
The dispute centered on the board's
confidentiality policy concerning hiring
practices. Director of Food Services Jan


Smith chaired a search committee that
ranked applicants for food service posi-
tions within the district. According to
Boatright's petition to the board, when
he selected an applicant other than the
one highest-rated by the committee,
Smith called the top-ranked candidate

executive board, were inducted and
pinned as new members of the SGA.

sor of SGA," said O'Hara. "I am thrilled
to have this many students involved in

L Madison, and Rachel Frey of Monticello
public relations officer. The SGA presi-
dent position will be filled after an elec-
tion to be held this month.
Following the induction ceremony,
guest speaker and NFCC History Instruc-
tor David Paulk shared with the students
and their supporting audience what he be-
lieved makes a great leader.
"Leaders can be found in many differ-
ent areas," said Paulk. "But the most im-
portant factor in leadership is others;
thinking of others."
Paulk said that it is the little things that
make-a difference. Quoting John
Maxwell, he told the students to perform
small acts of kindness, to walk slowly
through the crowd in order to connect
with people and to move into action and
get involved.
"We can't accomplish anything without
tin the contributions of others," said Paulk.
ny "A leader will become'a better leader if
w they learn to value others and take the
nau- time to show them so."
A reception was held immediately fol-
lowing the ceremony.

Pain Relievers for Tension Headaches
Tension headaches are characterized by mild to moderate head pain,
which may extend to the back of the neck. This type of headache may
resolve within a half hour, or may persist for several days. Persons
who experience tension headaches may experience difficulty
sleeping, decreased appetite, or difficulty concentrating. Chemicals in
the brain, such as scrotonin and endorphins, may be altered and
interfere with pain pathways in the brain. Headache triggers include
stress,. anxicly, lack of physical activity, and hormonal changes.
C'crlain medications also may trigger tension headaches, including
drugs prescribed for high blood pressure and depression.
Pain relievers available over-the-counter, including ibuprofen
(Morrin). and acetaminophen (Tylenol) may provide relief from
tension headaches. Unless otherwise directed by a doctor, the use of
pa:in-relievers for tension headaches should be limited to 2 days per
week. For more severe headaches, certain prescription medications
may he prescribed. These include the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory
medications naproxen (Naprosyn) and ketorolac (Toradol).
Paroxetinc (Pacil) and venlafaxine (LEjl.or), are antidepressants that
are sometime prescribed to reduce the severity of chronic tension
headache attacks.

OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat

To all


who


served
As the nation contin-
ues its long goodbye to
the Greatest Generation
- World War II veter-.
ans, dying at the well-
documented rate of
more than 1,000 a day
- let's not forget those
whose heroics have
been less celebrated.
Combat veterans from
all eras, of course. We
honor without question
all those who, in order
to preserve our safety,
risked their own.
But what about those
who stood ready -
though were never
called upon to fight?
Next Tuesday, let's re-
member all of our vet-
erans. Every man or
woman who ever
served, played a vital
role in the defense of
our freedom, whether
called to arms or not.
Their presence alone
served as a deterrent to
those who might ques-
tion, for one fleeting
moment, the strength of
our resolve. We salute
you all.

OPINION


ii you ge
Dwain Walden
I've never really
thought much about it
because it has no practi-
cal application in my .
,small world, but scien-
tists have built a robot
psychologist that astro-
nauts can consult with
when they get cabin fever or have interper-
sonal conflicts.
In my case, I would have an interperson-
al conflict before we left the launch pad,
because I would have greatly offended the
six guys it would take to push me through
that little door and lock the hatch from the
outside. I'm thinking we would need a real
doctor, not a psychologist. We would need
one who could fix broken bones, sew up
deep wounds and do transplants. I'm think-
ing a proctologist would also need to be on
standby in case the brawl became anatomi-
cally correct.
Of course I realize there are people
much braver and much more adventurous
than me, and I suppose if they spend
months out there in the wild blue yonder,
such therapy could be necessary. That
gives new meaning to the expression about


t


depressed
someone "being way out there."
Things can go wrong out there. They
have had one devil of a time trying to keep
their toilets working in the space station.
They don't have a "Joe the Plumber" robot.
And not being able to flush could really
get depressing after a couple of weeks.
Just call it the "outhouse syndrome."
They are going to test this robot psy-
chologist concept in a "virtual" space sta-
tion in Boston. Virtual means a simulation
- not the real thing. In a virtual space sta-
tion, you can open the door, step outside,
flag down a cab and go home to watch
football if you go over the edge.
In that regard, I don't think anyone has
considered it yet, but I think there's a mar-
ket for "virtual" exercise equipment. You
would put on special goggles, and it would
show you in three dimension doing chin-
ups and bench pressing 300 pounds. You
could even see your muscles tone-up and
your keg turn into a six pack. This would
not actually be happening, but it might
make you feel better about your "virtual"
self.
Reports on this virtual psychology thing
imply that it could have earthly applica-
tion. This would be for people who need to


I in space
consult a therapist but who are reluctant to
talk about their mama and their fear of an-
chovies to a real person.
In this concept, one just types his prob-
lems into a laptop computer and the robot
diagnoses the issues and offers some dia-
logue. I see it as sort of like an on-line
"Ask Doctor Gott." I just hope that the
voice one would hear is better than the one
they have on the automatic telephone in-
formation system. And I hope the robot
hears better than the one on long distance.
Otherwise, the process will just add to the
depression.
This project is being described as the
"epitome of clinical creativityy" Translated,
it's really good stuff.
So I'm sitting out in the back porch
swing, wondering if this "virtual" thing
might have application to Congress (some-
times known as "Lost In Space)." At least
we could look through some goggles and
pretend we have an abundance of leader-
ship. We would see statesmen as opposed
to future lobbyists. It could serve as a
model for future development.

Bear Creek Music and Arts Festival



announces Nov. 14-16 lineup


L;

-a


The Bear Creek Music and Arts Festi-
val will return to the Spirit of Suwannee
Music Park in Live Oak, Florida Nov. 14-
16 for what promises to be a memorable
weekend of music, arts and revelry with
an undercurrent of environmental
awareness and charity. The revelry will
commence with an intimate "pre-festi-
val" kick-off party, taking place on-
site Thursday, Nov. 13.
Florida's own JJ Grey and
MOFRO is the most recent addi-
tion to the Bear Creek roster of
artists, which already boasts Yon-
der Mountain String Band,
Soulive and The Everyone Orches-
tra (featuring Phish drummer Jon Fish-
man). These four headliners accurately
frame the scope of this festival, with
Grey's brilliant songwriting, Yonder
Mountain's bluegrass and beyond,
Soulive's smart funk and the creating-mu-
sic-on-the-spot spirit of The Everyone Or-
chestra.
Bear Creek will also feature multiple
"live art" painters during performances
Musically inclined regional arut is t. ill
create paintings "in the moment" (in
shared spirit with most of the musical
acts) and bring forth works inspired bN
the music and created in front of the festi-
val crowd. Some of the resulting pieces
will be available during a silent auction
(which provides a great way to support
local artists, not to mention get early
Christmas shopping done).
The Bear Creek Music and .Art Festi-
val will deepen its environmental commit-
ment (and take a cue from the venerable
Magnolia Festival) by taking part in the
debut of the ambitious Green Program
"The Spirit of Suwannree is an en\ iron-
mentally-friendly facility and is commit-
ted to enhancing its 'green' policies." saN s
Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park repre-
sentative Robin White. "During the cornm-
ing years festival goers will see impro e-
ments through the use of biodegradable
materials, water conservation policies.
habitat protection efforts,
recycling and more."
Fittingly, there will be
many nature-oriefited activ-
ities offered during the
Bear Creek Music Festival,
most notably scenic canoe
trips on the legendary
Suwannee River. These
trips will depart from the
festival site. There will be a
charitable Frisbee golf tour-
nament and fervent sports
fans will always have the
option of a satellite-en-
hanced sports bar (yes, they
will have ALL of that
weekend's college and NFL
games).
Bear Creek will also ad-
dress a long-standing con-
cern of festival audiences.
Oftentimes fans are left
wishing they could have
had more music from their
favorite band. Bear Creek
answers this concern by of-
fering multiple sets from
nine bands.
"We are very happy to be
able to have bands playing
multiple sets over the
course of the weekend,"
says festival organizer Paul
Levine. "It gives the artists
and the audience a better
chance to get to know each
other and have a more per- j
sonal experience." Soulive Trio

One way a festival endears itself to an

them toward great musical "finds" for
those willing to discover them. The Jazz-

Loren Propper Band to perform Friday night


"Honky Tonk Prince" of country
music, Kenneth Brian, is in the
house Saturday night at the Spirit
of the Suwannee Music Park


America's "Honky Tonk Prince" of
country music will be in the house at
the Spirit of the Suwannee Music
Park this Saturday night, Nov. 8, to
bring you the best in real county mu-
sic.
Influenced by the late Johnny Hor-
ton's music, dedicated to the music
of Hank Williams Sr. and keeping
false country at bay, Kenneth Brian
has traveled the world trying to bring
back real country music. This week-
end he will be in Live Oak to per-
form for you.
An Alachua County boy who left
the nest to make his way into the
.world of music 12 years ago, Ken-
neth and his band are currently play-
ing Florida dates. He and the band
played at the Columbia County Fair
last week and other dates include Or-
lando, Daytona, Gainesville, Austin,
Tucson, Houston and Nashville.
Kenneth's brand new album, Falling
Down Slow, is hot off the presses,
and it will be available for fans at the
Music Hall Nov. 8 along with other
mementos of the occasion. The al-
bum was recorded on Music Row in
Nashville. "I handed them cash mon-
ey in a brown paper bag!" he
laughed about the costs of recording
these days.
This singer, musician, actor also
writes music and works with a pub-
lishing company to get his music out
before the public.
"I'm a big fan of Johnny (Horton)
and that's what I grew up on," Ken-
neth said last week as he was enroute
to Florida. "Growing up, I played
with any kind of band to get experi-
ence but I couldn't get away from
country music."
Kenneth bears a striking resem-
blance to Hank Sr., a fact that hasn't


escaped him. When he sings Hank's
music, you could almost believe
Hank is among us again. That might
have been rather haunting in Austin,
TX when Kenneth was asked to play
the part of Hank Sr. in Austin.
"I had never even thought about
acting until one night this guy came
up to me after a show and offered me
the part," nneth said.
Thinking the man might be pulling
his leg, it took some convincing to
get Kenneth to consider the offer but
he did and the play sold out every
night.
One newspaper review of Ken-
neth's performances said Kenneth is
"the past, present and future of coun-
try music." Another says he's "firmly
rooted in his honky-tonk ways." One
thing is for sure, you will hear some
great music this Saturday at the Spir-
it of the Suwannee Music Park.
Admission to the Kenneth Brian
show Saturday night will be $10.
Come early, get a good seat and plan
to enjoy your evening with real
country music, good food, beverages
and dancing.
Friday night admission to the Mu-
sic Hall is free with the Loren Prop-
per Band laying down more good
country music.
Music gets underway both Friday
and Saturday nights at 7 p.m. The
SOS Caf6 and Restaurant will have
dinner and beverages available at
regular prices both evenings.

the many future events, at the
SOSMP, go to

reservationsfor accommodations for
the weekend at the SOSMP, call 386-

Local legislator receives leadership award


State Representative Debbie Boyd (D-High
Springs) was honored recently with the Leg-
islative Leadership Award by the Florida Mu-
nicipal Electric Association (FMEA). The
award was presented to Representative Boyd
by FMEA Executive Director Barry Moline.
Boyd was praised for her dedication and
support to Florida's municipal electric utilities
and for her commitment to controlling costs
for customers. Boyd, a former Newberry City
Commissioner, represents two municipal elec-
tric utilities Newberry and Alachua.


"FMEA honors leaders who have shown a
commitment to public power by helping com-'
munities maintain their local control and keep-
ing electric costs reasonable," said Barry Mo-
line, FMEA Executive Director. "Our legisla-
tive success would not have been possible
without the dedication and support of Repre-
sentative Boyd. She fights hard for her con-
stituents and was successful in the 2008 ses-
sion at stopping legislation that would have
significantly raised costs on consumers."

Love in the Name

of Christ report

Submitted by Joseph Catarious, LOVE Inc.,
executive director

During the first nine months of 2008 we have
had the following number of people served by
Love in the Name of Christ: adults 762, chil-
dren (under 18) 545 and food given 801.
Income: churches, $12,182.22; individuals,
$4,867.07; United Way, $4,050.00; .50 cent for
God, $2,171.71; Angel Food, $1,958.00. Use of
money: salaries, $12,500.00; expenses,
$11,592.00, client support, $4,802.00, deficit,
$4,288.00.
Expenses include payroll taxes, fees, supplies,
food, rent, equipment, rental cost and miscella-
neous expenses. We have added new computers,
software, furniture and phones in order to better
serve and expand the ministries we do for the
churches in Suwannee County. We have also
added staff in order to do the ministries that vol-
unteers can't do and are required for a positive
ministry impact.
We would prayerfully ask your church to con-
sider increases to your mission budgets and adop-
tion of the .50 cent for God program in your
churches for the next year. As we expand our out-
reach to our community we will need additional
funding. It is my hope that with the grace of God
and your help we could have a budget of $70,J000
or more for next year to continue the programs
we have begun and need to develop. We present-
ly have 22 churches that contribute to Love INC.
Programs that were started in 2008: angel food
ministries, car repair ministries, expanded food
pantry, mentoring of clients, expanded bread
ministry and begun to develop a program for
budget counseling. Additional programs can be
added as the churches and congregations see a
need in the community. This is your ministry.
We need volunteers and if your church will or-
ganize a food drive within your church for dona-
tion to Love in the Name of Christ that would be
very helpful.
As we recently reported to United Way for the
first nine months of this year, Love in the Name
of Christ of Suwannee County has provided
$121,788 worth of services to our community.
This has all come from the programs that we do
here at Love in the Name of Christ.

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 operation, so they
aren't scared or in pain.
Spaying and neutering are so impor-
tant 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 creat-
ing thousands of new cats and dogs.

Information About the Upcoming Digital TV Transition
After February 17, 2009, the FCC will require all full-power television broadcast stations
to stop broadcasting in analog format and broadcast only in digital format. A television
receiver with only an analog broadcast tuner then as a result will require a converter box
to receive full-power over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna. Analog-only TVs should
continue to work as before to receive low power, Class A or translator television
stations. Analog-only TVs also should continue to work as before with satellite and
cable services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players and similar products.
For more information regarding this transition, please visit www.DTV.gov.
You can visit www.dtv2009.gov or call 1-888-DTV-2009 for

ASK DR. MANTOOTH



Q: If I stay away from sugary food, will I
avoid cavities?
A: Staying away from sugary food will serve
your body in many ways. Sugary food,
though, is only part of the equation when it
comes to dental caries, or cavities. Other
factors come into play. How frequently you
eat, for instance, can be as important as
what you eat So cut down on between-meal
snacking to reduce the time your teeth are
exposed to the acid that is created by
bacteria in plaque.
Be particularly watchful of your carbohydrate
intake. When the bacteria in your mouth mix
with carbohydrates they create acid that can
break down enamel and cause cavities
Bacteria in plaque produce potentially
harmful acid for 20 to 40 minutes after
coming in contact with carbohydrates.
So eat a healthy diet that gives you
nutritional balance. An adequate supply of
vitamins, minerals and other nutrients is
essential to keeping teeth and gums healthy.
Whenever possible, brush your teeth after a
meal to remove the plaque and bacteria that
create the harmful acids. And try to avoid
sugary fluids during the day Floss at least
once a day Talk with your dentist about
establishing an eating routine that will
contribute to oral health.

and revealed that the ap-
plicant had been passed
over by a lower-ranked
candidate.
In a telephone interview
Tuesday, Smith disputed
Boatright's account.
"I am not guilty of the
allegations against me,"
she said. "When I tried to
plead my case to him
(Boatright) that I did not
do what he said I did he
would not listen to me, he
just suspended me without
pay."
Smith said that she told
the rejected applicant only
that someone else had
been hired, not that the in-
dividual had been passed
over; and had not violated
district policy concerning
the confidentiality of hir-
ing procedures.
The hearing, which last-
ed more than seven hours,
took place Oct. 29 at the
district office in Live Oak.
The vote was 3-2, with
board members James
Cooper, Muriel Owens and
Jerry Taylor voting to re-
tain Smith. Chairperson
Julie Ulmer and board
member J.M. Holtzclaw
-voted to grant Boatright's
request to fire her.
Taylor said Boatright's
case wasn't strong enough.
"I felt as though the su-
perintendent did not pre-
sent his case in a sufficient
manner to warrant termi-
nation in my opinion,"
Taylor told the Democrat.
Ulmer favored termina-
tion, however.
"I felt there was suffi-
cient evidence to uphold
the superintendent's re-
quest for termination, but
three of my fellow (board)


nate that it happened, but
we have been able to cor-
rect it. We don't live in a
perfect world."
Cameron was relieved to
put the election behind
him.
"I'm just very humbled
by the opportunity to con-
tinue serving the people of


members did not," she
said.
Smith said she 'vas told
Monday morning that she
would be working from
then on as a custodian at
Suwannee Elementary
School.
Boatright said he ex-
plained to Smith that her
former position was 'being
eliminated and that those
duties would be the re-
sponsibility of Bill
Yanossy, assistant superin-
tendent of administrative
services.
"I explained to her the
reason and rationale of the
situation," Boatright told
the Democrat Tuesday. "I
tried to be very compas-
sionate to explain the situ-
ation."
Smith said she believes
the reassignment was re-
taliation. Boatright dis-
agreed.
"Not at all, this was
strictly a cost saving mea-
sure," he countered. "Due
to our food service posi-
tion being vacated, I have
assigned all responsibility
to Yanossy."
Smith held the position
of food service director for
about two weeks. Before
that she was supervisor of
materials, a position that
has since been eliminated.
She held that post for
21 years. Boatright said it
had long been in the
works to eliminate the
materials supervisor and
food service director po-
sitions as a way to save
the district money.
The school board will be
responsible for Smith's at-
torney fees, district records
show. The board has not
yet received a bill from
Smith's attorney.

said. "The people of
Suwannee County have
stood behind me and I as-
sure them that I will be
there for them when they
need me."
His challenger said he
was unsure what the future
held for him.
"I've run a good, clean
race and I appreciate ,
everyone's support," Croft
said. "Whatever the Lord
leads me to do, that's what
I'll be doing."
Wainwright was pleased
with his win.

City updates rules on alcohol sales

and derive at least 51 percent of sales
from food and non-alcoholic bever-
ages. However, the definition of what
was considered a full-service restau-
rant was unclear.
"The new ordinance gives criteria
that has to be met in order for an es-
tablishment to be distinguished as a
full-service restaurant," Curtis said.
According to the new ordinance, an
establishment that advertises anything
other than the sale of food shall not be
considered a full-service restaurant.
The ordinance defines a full-service
restaurant as an establishment that of-
fers full-course meals at all times. A
full-course meal must include a salad
or vegetable, an entree, a beverage
and bread. The serving of cold plates,
snacks and pre-made sandwiches are
not considered full-course meals.
A full-service restaurant must de-
rive at least 51 percent of sales from
food and non-alcoholic beverages,
meet health and sanitation require-
ments set by the government, hold a
license to sell alcoholic beverages and


have a cooking facility and kitchen
equipment for serving 60 food cus-
tomers on china and with metal uten-
sils.
Full-service restaurants that meet
the requirements of the.ordinance are
the only establishments allowed to
sell alcohol on Sundays.
A business designated as a full-ser-
vice restaurant may sell alcoholic bev-
erages on Sundays between 1 p.m.
and 10:30 p.m. Such businesses may
also sell alcoholic beverages Monday-
Saturday from 7 a.m.-1:30 a.m. the
next day.
Other establishments licensed to
sell alcohol and that meet city require-
ments may sell alcoholic beverages
during various times on Monday-Sat-
urday, but not on Sunday.
Police Chief Buddy Williams'said
there are about 10 restaurants in Live
Oak that met the requirements of the
old ordinance. Curtis said under the
provisions of the new ordinance busi-
nesses would be required to seek des-
ignation from the city to be consid-
ered a full-service restaurant. It is not
clear whether those same businesses


will meet requirements under the new
ordinance.
Curtis compiled the initial draft of
the revised ordinance and he worked
with Williams and City Attorney Emny
Sellers on its completion.
The new ordinance was adopted on
Oct. 28.

City finalizes utility rate
increase
The city council on Oct. 14 gave fi-
nal approval for a 6.6 percent utility
rate hike for businesses and residents.
The average household will see a
$5.49 monthly increase in utility bills.
Of that, $4.24 is for an increase in
utilities and $1.25 will help fund up-
grades to the city's century-old sani-
tary'sewer system. Businesses that are
low volume water users will see a
$19.85 monthly increase and busi-
nesses that are high volume users will
see a $74.03 hike.
City officials have said the increase
in utilities is due to the rise in gas
prices and roughly a 28 percent in-
crease over last year in the price the
city pays for electricity.

'Dogs lose big to Baker


Suwannee falls 54-21

playoffs out of reach

By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

The Bulldogs lost to the Baker County Wildcats 54-21 on
a cool Halloween night at Langford, ending Suwannee's
hopes for the playoffs.
"We just couldn't play right," said head coach Tommy
Chambers. "We gave up big plays and another kickoff re-
turn."
Chambers said that the 'Dogs have gotten better as the
season progresses however.
"We are trying now to end the season on a positive note,"
Chambers said.
Suwannee (2-6) was tricked instead of treated, and speed
got the best of the injury-depleted 'Dogs, who failed all
night to master the 'Cats' quickness. Suwannee's best runner,
the X Man, Xavier Perry was hurt and did not play. Also out
Odue to injuries were defensive back Garrett Pritchett and of-
fensive lineman Bryne Allen.
Baker (1-2) scored in the first'18 seconds of the game on a
90-yard kickoff return, then put six more points on the board
on yet another kickoff return, this one for 34 yards. A 48-
yard run with 8:42 left to go in the first quarter made it'21-0.
The 'Dogs got their first score of the night on a quarter-
back keeper by David Campbell for a five-yard touchdown.
The Austin O'Connor extra point made it 21-7.
An interception at the Wildcats' 1 led to a 99-yard drive
and another Baker score.
The final two scores for the 'Dogs of the night came on
'Rashad Gardenhire runs.
SWith the loss, Suwannee, 0-3 in District 3-3A, is out of the
-unning for a postseason berth.
The 'Dogs take on Bishop Kenny Nov. 7 in their last dis-
trict game of the season. It will also be Suwannee's last
home game for 2008. Senior football players, cheerleaders
and band members will be recognized.
Come out and support the 'Dogs at their last home game.

The SHS swim teams completed the reg-
ular season with meets against Maclay
School, St. Francis, Gainesville High, PK
Yonge and Florida School for the Deaf and
;Blind, with the boys going undefeated.
On Oct. 15 Maclay traveled to Live Oak
to take on the 'Dogs. Both SHS team
walked away with a victory. The boys won
106 to 55 while the girls won 74 to 72. TJ
Vickers, Shelby Brothers, Hali Brannon,
Katherine Haney, and Ryne 'Irner all
contributed to first place finishes.
Oct. 16 took the swimmers to
Gainesville for a tri-meet against St. Fran-
cis and Gainesville High. The SHS boys
walked away with two wins, earning 146
points to 104 for GHS and 35 for St. Fran-
,cis. The girls had a great meet but came up
,short with 80 points to 111 for GHS and 94


for St. Francis. The meet was very intense
with the larger GHS boy's team frustrated
by the speed and aggressive swimmers from
Suwannee.
Oct. 22 brought PK Yonge to town and
the 'Dogs took a few moments to honor
their seniors. Seniors honored were Emilie
Farris, the daughter of Katherine Farris.
Farris plans on attending Stetson Universi-
ty or UCLA and pursue a degree in Library
Science or International Studies. Gini

attending college. Josh Coulter, the son of


Terri Skinner, plans to pursue a career as a
paratrooper. Hali Brannon, the daughter of

COMMENTARY



Pride


and the


Bucket


Bulldog Review
By Tom Daniels

The 'Dogs.will not be going
to the playoffs this year but
there are still two games
remaining. It will be Senior
Night this Friday and it will be
our last home game of the
season. The 'Dogs will be
taking on Bishop Kenny, a
district opponent. The winner
of this game escapes the
district basement. This will be
the last year in our current
district Jackson, Raines,
Baker and Bishop Kenny.
The 'Dogs had plenty
offense Friday night, 21 points,
and it could have been more,
but they gave.up 54 and it
could have been more. The
kick return was once again a
killer and if we are to defend
the Oaken Bucket in two
weeks we need this game. The
Tigers have a Tiger who can
break one and our defense
needs to get it together if we
are to do something that hasn't
been done since, since, well I
don't remember, win the
Bucket two years in a row.
It all starts this Friday senior
night at Langford Stadium.
Tickets are on sale at the
Sports Connection. Students
$4, adults $6. Come out and
support Suwannee Athletics,
the NJROTC and the Sound of
Suwannee. Kick-off is 7:30.'
Aloha. Be there.

Pregnant women missing important


protection during flu season


It's no secret. Influenza -- commonly known as the flu, is a leading cause
of illness, hospitalizations and death in the United States, according to the
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). While we're all at
some risk for getting this contagious disease during flu season, for pregnant
women, the stakes are even higher. Pregnancy-related changes in the
respiratory and immune systems can increase not only the likelihood of
getting the flu, they also increase the risk of complications, such as
pneumonia and hospitalization. More importantly, if a pregnant woman gets
the flu, it could also affect her baby's health.
But, despite the risks that the flu poses to mother and child, a 2006
National Health Information Survey estimates that fewer than 14 percent of
moms-to-be get vaccinated during the flu season each year. This is also in
spite of recommendations from leading experts emphasizing flu vaccination
for women who are pregnant during flu season and new scientific evidence
showing the protective benefit of flu vaccination during pregnancy to a
mother's newborn.
What's more, findings from a new National Women's Health Resource
Center (NWHRC). survey conducted by Harris Interactive show the flu
vaccine is "bottom-of-mind" for most women when they consider their own
prenatal health. In fact, only 56 percent of women believed getting a flu shot
was important during pregnancy. In contrast, nearly half of women are either
uncertain about flu vaccine's safety or believe it is unsafe, and only 20
percent of those who are currently pregnant said they plan to get a flu shot
this season.
To encourage moms-to-be to take action during flu season, the NWHRC is
partnering with the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal
Nurses (AWHONN) to launch "Flu-Free and A Mom-to-Be: Protect Yourself,
Protect Your Baby, Get A Flu Shot!." The program will educate pregnant
women on what they need to know about flu vaccination during pregnancy
and encourage healthcare providers to talk to their pregnant patients about
the benefits of flu vaccination. Educational information and tools, and
answers to frequently asked questions about flu and pregnancy are available
on the NWHRC's Parenting and Pregnancy portal at
www.HealthyWomen.org.
"Staying healthy is critical to expectant niothers and their babies, which is
why getting vaccinated during flu season is an essential part of prenatal
health," said Elizabeth Battaglino Cahill, RN, Executive Director of
NWHRC. "To help educate and encourage flu vaccination- in pregnant
women, we're offering them the tools and information needed to discuss flu
vaccination with their healthcare provider, so they can actively incorporate
flu protection in their prenatal and newborn care plan."
"Flu vaccination has been shown to be safe and effective and to provide
protection for both mother and newborn baby. In fact, new scientific
evidence shows that flu vaccination of a pregnant mother can reduce the risk
of influenza-related infections in newborns who can't receive the flu shot
themselves," said Ashley Roman, MD, MPH, Clinical Assistant Professor,

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, New York University Langone
Medical Center. "For those who are concerned about vaccine preservatives, I
urge you to explore thimerosal-free flu shot options with your healthcare
provider."
The survey also revealed that only one in four women were aware of expert
medical guidelines that recommend women obtain a flu vaccine during
pregnancy, and more than 60 percent said they never discussed getting a flu
shot during pregnancy with their doctor. However, of those who were
vaccinated against the flu during their pregnancy, nearly three in 10 said they
did so because their healthcare provider recommended it.

About Influenza
According to the CDC, influenza (the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness
caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times
can lead to death. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu
vaccination each year. Every year in the United States, on average 5 percent
to 20 percent of the population gets the flu; more than 200,000 people are
hospitalized from flu complications, and about 36,000 people die from flu.
Some people, such as older people, young children, and people with certain
health conditions, are at high risk for serious flu complications.
About the Survey
This survey was conducted on behalf, of the National Women's Health
Resource Center by Harris Interactive online between September 4-12, 2008
among 528 women aged 18-50 who reside in the U.S., and who are currently
pregnant or were recently pregnant. The survey was designed to gauge the
knowledge of flu vaccination among pregnant women while looking at myths
and fears women have about getting
a flu shot while pregnant. h [P
