How folks feel




about Obama


Suwannee County reacts
to historic election of
first African American
U.S. president
By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com
Now that the campaign is over and
the results are in, how do local folks
feel about the election of Barack Oba-
ma, America's first African American
president?
In a pre-election online poll, the De-
mocrat asked readers whom they
planned to vote for. In our admittedly

unscientific survey, 68 percent of re-
spondents favored John McCain, 32
percent, Barack Obama. We weren't too
far off. On Election Day, 71 percent
picked McCain, 28 percent, Obama.
This week's online poll asked a dif-
ferent question: Are you pleased with :
the outcome of the presidential elec-
tion? The final results won't be in until
Thursday, but as of today, 57 percent
have responded "no," 43 percent, "yes."
We suspect that while local voters
didn't opt for Obama n large numbers,
they are willing to pull together as a
country under his leadership. Time will
tell. Meanwhile, we asked a few local
residents for their thoughts on the elec-
tion.
Linda Ford, a Democrat, supported
Obama:
"The moment was historic," Ford
said. "Americans chose hope over fear.
I was overjoyed with excitement, as

Ode to Miss Daisy


By Betty Barnes


Having met Miss Daisy Pearl An-
thony twenty years ago, I'm here to
tell you she was quite a lady. She :
made a big impression on me with her
eagerness and willingness to help in .
any way possible, whatever the task at
hand.
It was a big surprise to Daisy to find
a group of people in Wellborn who re- ,:
ally cared about their friends and
neighbors. She had suffered a loss in
her family and the town folk were
there to walk through the hard time
with her and for her.
Daisy took great pride in putting to- Betty Barnes
gether the community Christmas.
Over 100 stockings were handmade and filled with toys
and candy. The stockings were put into each child's open
hand and smiling face, being the only Christmas a lot of
the kids would have to enjoy.
Daisy couldn't wait to get started on the next project.
Whenever Easter came around, Daisy would convince
Hill-in-Dale to donate 200 eggs to be hidden at Andrews
Square in Wellborn. Excited kids from everywhere hunt-
ed and searched 'til every last egg was found. Then they
stuffed themselves with chicken and rice, which is a
town's favorite reason to get together. Enough chicken
and rice was cooked to serve the whole town.
Helping prepare and deliver meals and fruit baskets to


the shut-ins and elderly was a tradition
that Daisy looked forward to. Having
been born and raised in Wellborn, she
knew most folks by their first names and
everything that was going on in their
lives.
The event that Daisy enjoyed most hap-
pens the first weekend in June. It takes a
lot of hard work to make the Blueberry
S Festival happen. Months of meetings and
planning bring friends and strangers to-
gether in harmony to carry out such a
huge celebration. Then the planning for
the next year starts, so that it will be even
S bigger and better.
When the Wellborn Neighborhood
Watch began, Daisy was one of the first to
join and. volunteer to patrol. Keeping an
eye on the B & B and Jiffy Store became part of her day.
The streets and roads of Wellborn became well traveled
by Daisy's little white car. Eventually patrolling came to
a stop. Her legs would no longer carry her. A wheelchair
became her transportation. Mr. Louis Berry came to her
rescue by getting her a motorized chair. The chair was a
lifesaver for her.
An important part of Daisy's life was the Prayer
Chain. She kept a list of names to pray and ask God to
heal and bless and to watch-over. She filled her days
with prayer and phone calls to people who lived by
themselves, giving a ray of hope and sunshine and letting
them know that she cared about them.

Miss Daisy
While patrolling one night in Wellborn, my friend
Ruth and I stopped by Daisy's house. Inside the door, a
pot of lentil and spam soup greeted us. The smell was so
inviting that we had to have a bowl of soup. It was the
first time I had eaten this together. It was so-o-o! good. I
make it often now it was THAT good.
Daisy passed away August 17, 2008. Wellborn has lost
a great lady. When I go by her empty house, I remember
all the great times we spent together. I miss her terribly.
Goodbye, Miss Daisy, for now.

Medications Prescribed for Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis results when there are low levels of minerals such as
calcium and phosphorous in the bones. Bones that are porous may
lead to osteoporosis, and possibly eventual fractures. Factors that
may increase the risk of developing osteoporosis include older age,
small body frame, and lack of physical activity. Certain medications
may also increase the risk of developing osteoporosis, such as
corticosteroids (Prednisone) if used for an extended period of time.
Symptoms of this condition include back pain, stooped posture, and
fractures of the wrists, hips, or other hones. Bone density is critical
in determining the development of osicoporosis. Persons with lower
bone density are more likely to develop osteoporosis later in life.
Bisphosphonates work to maintain bone mass, prevent the
breakdown of bone, and increase bone density. Alendronate
(Fosaanx) is a bisphosphonate that may be taken daily or weekly.
Zoledronic acid (Reclast), another bisphosphonate, was approved
recently as a once yearly intravenous infusion for osteoporosis.
Raloxifene (E'ista) is a selective estrogen receptor modulator
(SERM). This medication provides similar beneficial effects on
bone tissue as does estrogen: however it does not have some of the
same risks as does estrogen. 487699-F

ASK DR.MANTOOTH



Q: What does it mean when a wisdom
tooth is "impacted?"
A: When a "wisdom tooth," also known
as a third molar, does not fully erupt and
is trapped either fully or partially in the
gum or against another tooth, it's called
"impacted." This can be an extremely
painful condition, especially if the soft
tissues surrounding the crown of the
impacted tooth become inflamed and
infected.
One of the most common dental
surgical procedures is extraction of an
impacted wisdom tooth. The procedure
requires the expertise of the oral
surgeon. The surgeon will use either a
local or general anesthetic to make sure
you experience no pain during the
procedure. A-third molar can have as
many as five curved roots. Sometimes
it's necessary for the oral surgeon to
break the tooth in several sections to get
it out. The surgeon will carefully clean
and irrigate the wound and close it with
sutures. Residual pain and swelling.in
the jaw may last for a few days. Your
dentist can give you a more
comprehensive explanation about the
ins and outs of wisdom teeth.

FLORIDA GAS TRANSMISSION COMPANY
PROPOSES A PIPELINE EXPANSION TO
SUPPLY FLORIDA'S CLEAN ENERGY NEEDS

The Fiing October 31st

On October 31, 2008, Florida Gas Transmission Company, LLC (FGT) filed
an application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity with the Federal
Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to construct an expansion of its existing
interstate pipelinersystem. The project has been designated the Phase VIII Expansion
Project and has been assigned Docket No. CP09-17-000 at the FERC.

Florida Gas Transmission -your clean energy partner

FGT is Florida's leader in providing clean energy solutions, safely and reliably.
FGT is an interstate natural gas pipeline with offices in Maitland, Florida and
Houston, Texas and employees at field offices along our pipeline system. FGT
operates a 4,900-mile pipeline system that runs from South Texas to Homestead,
Florida. FGT has been supplying the majority of Florida's natural gas needs for
almost 50 years through an extensive network of underground pipelines.

Phase VII Expansion Project its scope and purpose

The Phase VIII Expansion Project refers to Florida Gas Transmission's proposal
to construct eleven pipeline loops, three new pipeline segments, add compression at
eight existing compressor stations, construct one new compressor station, three new
meter stations, two meter station upgrades, and associated auxiliary facilities. FGT
proposes to construct 357.3 miles of 24-inch, 36-inch and 42-inch diameter mainline
loops, approximately 89.8 miles of 30-inch new mainline and approximately 36.1 miles
of 20-inch and 24-inch diameter new lateral pipelines. The project also includes the
acquisition from Florida Power & Light of approximately 22.7 miles of an existing
20-inch lateral connecting FGT's mainline. Compression horsepower additions
totaling 213,600 will be constructed as part of the project. FGT is requesting
authorization from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration
to operate certain segments of its existing pipeline system in addition to portions of
the proposed pipeline expansion at greater pressures than currently authorized.
This authorization would eliminate the need to construct an additional 80.5 miles of
36-inch mainline loops. The proposed in service date for the project is April 1, 2011,
with the exception of one new lateral segment in which it has been requested to be
completed by July 1, 2010.
The purpose of the Phase VIII Expansion Project is to deliver needed natural
gas volumes to six electric generation utilities within the state of Florida.

Planned Construction in your area

How Landowners are affected-

A pipeline normally requires a permanent 50-foot wide right-of-way. During
construction, FGT will need an additional 50-75 feet of workspace next to the
permanent right-of-way. FGT may also need temporary workspace in certain areas,
such as road, railroad, or stream crossings, to accommodate particular construction
activities. Property owners are entitled by law to receive compensation for having a
pipeline on their property. FGT will negotiate with the' property owners to receive
approvals with a signed easement for needed property rights.
To the extent that FGT is unable to negotiate easement rights with landowners
whose property the pipeline construction impacts, such easement rights may be
determined in accordance with the eminent domain laws of the state in which your
property is located.

Members of the Suwannee
Democrat editorial board
are Myra C. Regan, pub-
lisher, and Robert Bridges,
editor. Our View, which ap-
pears in Wednesday edi-
tions of the Democrat, is
formed by that board.





OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat

Leading by

example
President Bush has
made extraordinary ef-
forts to ease the transi-
tion to the next admin-
istration. Bush vowed
to make the transfer of
power as smooth as
possible, and he's mak-
ing good on his word,
providing President-
elect Obama with un-
precedented access to.
top advisors on all
fronts.
"Ensuring that this
transition is seamless is
a top priority for the
rest of my time in of-
fice," Bush said Satur-
day in his weekly radio
address. "Our country
faces economic chal-
lenges that will not
pause to let a new pres-
ident settle in."
It's not just the econo-
my that faces a threat.
'This will also be
America's first wartime
presidential transition
in four decades," Bush
continued. "We're in a
struggle against violent
extremists determined
to attack us and they
would like nothing
more than to exploit
this period of change to
harm the American
people."
Thanks for putting
the country above poli-
tics, Mr. President.
Local officials, take
heed. There's a lesson
here for us.
Less is at stake in
Suwannee County than
on the national stage, of
course. A misstep dur-
ing the transition to a
new superintendent of
schools or clerk of
court certainly won't
spell disaster.
Let's follow the presi-
dent's lead nonetheless.
After all, what's good
for Suwannee County is
good for all of us. And
we shouldn't need a
reason to behave in civ-
il fashion.

OPINION


Yessiree Bob: If I'm lying, I'm dying


At least three times this
past week I have been
asked how I come up
with the stuff I write
about. My answer has
been expressed in a
slightly different vein on
a bumper sticker. "Stuff
happens."
And today I was asked
if the stuff is true. This person cited the col-
umn I wrote about exploring caves. He did-
n't believe there were caves in this area. So
I told him he could ask Emmit, Travis,
Carlton or Terrell the guys who were with
me.
And the one about the windmill ... well,
it's still standing there on the farm, churn-
ing in the breeze on Wolf Creek Road. I
won't charge you to look at it.
You'll have to take my word about being
chased by a sow, but most farm boys of my
generation can tell you that when a sow
breaks out of the barn and goes to the
woods to birth pigs, she generally has a se-
vere attitude about her privacy, and she
won't give a rip if you're a Democrat or a
Republican. You can run left or right and
she'll be right behind you.


I told my friend Clem Weldon, who
doubted me about the caves, that I would
write about him some day so that he would
know I wasn't making stuff up.
So the next day Clem picked me up in
front of my office in a purple dune buggy.
We took a drive around town with '50s mu-
sic blaring from the CD player and a string
of Mardi Gras beads hanging from the
rearview mirror. Needless to say, people
were staring at us. We pulled up to a traffic
light with the Platters belting out "Great
Pretender." A group of boys were standing
on the corner pointing at us. I told one of
them to pull his pants up. But I waited until
the light turned green. I didn't want more
stuff to happen than I could write about.
Since Clem and I differ greatly on poli-
tics and the election had just concluded, I
thought it was fitting that we should ride
around together in a purple dune buggy lis-
tening to the "oldies" a reminder that we
shouldn't take ourselves too seriously.
Clem is retired military and I've been in
the news business since Gutenberg. And
both of our wives probably wonder what
we'll be when we grow up. Clem is excep-
tional. He's the only guy I know with a pur-
ple dune buggy.


We rode over to Bill Smith's house to see
if he wanted to join us. He likes the
"oldies" as well. Bill is a retired chiroprac-
tor, and since we were riding in a dune
buggy, we thought his attendance might
have practical as well as social application.
His wife told us he wasn't there. I think she
was glad because Bill has a reputation to
uphold.
There was a lot of stuff I observed along
the way that I could have written about. It's
been a while since I have ridden in a con-
vertible, and I realized that my hair wasn't
all messed up neither one of them. So I
suppose I could rationalize that going bald
is a great rationale for buying a convertible,
which I think is much better reasoning than

they told me if I joined the Marines I would

the danger lay elsewhere
all along. Just a few weeks
earlier Michelle had been
murdered by another ac-
quaintance, a Shands nurse
in whom no one had seen
such a threat.
No, Don told the home-
less man, she wasn't mov-
ing. She died.
It took the man a mo-
ment to take it in.
"She won't have any
more cans for me?" he
asked.
Don shook his head, and
the homeless man began
to cry. Don fished in his
pocket for $20 but he re-
fused it.
"She talked to me like I
was somebody," he said,
then made away with his
cart.

Saturday marked three
years since the passing of
Suwannee High grad
Michelle Ann Herndon,
24, environmentalist, fit-
ness trainer, college stu-
dent and friend to the less
fortunate: the poor, the
lonely, the sick, the sad,
the suffering. She tried to
take care of everybody.
She was her mother's
hero.
"I was in awe of my
child," said Belinda Hem-
don. "Michelle was every-
thing I want to be. She
stood up for what she be-
lieved in. She said what
was on her mind. Where
I've seen injustice I'd say,
'Isn't that terrible.'
SMichelle would do some-

thing about it. I'd say,
'Where did that come
from? Her dad and I are
very quiet.'"
Michelle planned to join
the Peace Corps after grad-
uation from UF and work
in Africa.
"Michelle always said
she was going to 'adopt a
rainbow' of children," Be-
linda recalled. "I grieve for
the children whose lives
she won't have an effect
on."
Michelle Herndon lived
only a short while but left
a notable legacy. Folks
who never gave much
thought to the environment
now recycle in honor of
her daughter, says Belinda.
But that can't begin to


ease suffering such as she
never imagined.
"If I had known how
bad the pain would be, I
would've taken my life that
morning," Belinda said, in
reference to Nov. 10,
2005, when police told her
that her daughter was
gone.
"To suck air into my
lungs was the biggest ef-
fort I could make" on
some days, she said. She
took the screen out of the
bathroom window of her
Suwannee County home so
she could fill the dog's wa-
ter dish without going out-
side.
"It was like being in the
deepest, darkest hole, and
afraid to be around other


people for fear of drawing
them in."
The pain has never fad-
ed and likely never will.
For a time, though, it took
the form of another emo-
tion, nearly as strong: rage.
Her daughter's killer, a
nurse at Shands UF, fled to
Ireland to avoid prosecu-
tion. Belinda bought a
ticket to Dublin, though
she never used it. A one-
way ticket.
Police convinced her to
let them handle it, and
Oliver Travis O'Quinn,
who injected Michelle
with a lethal dose of a
powerful anesthetic, was
eventually returned to
Gainesville to stand trial
for murder. He was con-

well as overwhelmed by
the history of those who
had struggled just to have
the opportunity to cast a
vote. It was a proud day in
America's history when a
person was chosen by the
content of their character
and their ability to lead
and not by the color of
their skin. The election is
over. We now need to
unite as a country. I was so
happy to be a part of this
defining moment in histo-
ry."

Mark Stewart shared
his comments, but he
would not say whom he
supported:
"Whether you voted for


(Obama) or not, he's our
elected president and as a
country we need to sup-
port him," Stewart said.

Calamity White, a De-
mocrat, supported Obama:
"This was a victory for
American citizens who
fought to break down bar-
riers such as slavery and
discrimination," White
said. "To see this day is
truly awesome."

Dale Soles, a Republi-
can, supported McCain:
"When this happened it
was a complete shock to
me," Soles said.
Soles said he is con-
cerned with Obama's lack
of military experience and
his proposed increase in

Rhett Bullard, a Demo-
crat, supported Obama:
"People wanted funda-
mental change and Obama
was able to amass millions
of people to embrace that
idea," Bullard said. "I
think the Democrats found
their ground game again." .

Becky Fort, a Republi-
can, supported McCain:
"Actually, I think it was
great to see all those in-
volved," Fort said. "I'm a
Republican who voted for
McCain because I thought
he had experience. But I'm
okay with it, because we
need to rally around our
president."

James Cooper, a Demo-
crat, supported Obama:
"I was very pleased with
the outcome, was very
thrilled by this historical
event," said Cooper. "The
culmination of what mi-
norities went through over
the years is something that
can give us something to
look too."

charges of attempted sec-

Elizabeth Porter of Lake
City, 36,315 to 36,157.
Suwannee County Su-
pervisor of Elections
Glenda Williams said a
machine recount will be
done today. Results will
be turned in to the state
by tomorrow, after which
the state canvassing com-
mission will decide
whether to order a hand
recount.
Florida law requires a
machine recount if candi-
dates are separated by
one-half of 1 percent or
less. If the margin is one-
quarter of 1 percent or
less, a hand recount will


be ordered of ballots that
show over- and under-
votes. Overvotes are bal-
lots on which both candi-
dates in a race have been
marked. Undervotes are
ballots on which neither
candidate in a given race
was marked.
If a hand recount is or-
dered the local canvassing
board will determine vot-
er intent on undervote or
overvote ballots.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2008 U SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK PAGE 9A


By Barbara Gill
Annie Rogers is a people person and has the
awards and honors to prove it. She has one wall
of her home covered in testimonials to her hard
work and the admiration of her former
employers.
A native of Suwannee County, Annie has lived
in her current home in front of Suwannee Middle
School for 47 years. With five children, 19
grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren,
holidays in her home are crowded, with family
members wall to wall. Three of her children were
born on the 13th day of the month, but not on
Friday. She proudly says she graduated from
Suwannee High School in 1949, the only high
school graduate of six brothers and sisters.
The job Annie loved best was at the Top Value
Stamps store that was located in the Suwannee
County Mall. She had lots of good times there
with her co-workers. In the late 70s, she, along
with 14 other Top Value Stamp managers, flew to
Dayton, Ohio to see the distribution store. At the
airport in Jacksonville she was able to recognize
a fellow manager by the umbrella that could only
be purchased with Top Value Stamps.
Annie also managed the Super Dollar store that
was where the Veterans Park is now located. The
store was bought by Dollar General but later
closed. Annie worked in the Lake City Dollar
General store for a while, but didn't like the
commute.
In 1990, Annie was named Employee of the
Year at Kmart, where she worked for five years.
Her boss said that she could sell anyone
anything. Many of you will remember their blue
light specials that Annie coordinated.
Her first trip to Nashville on the bus with one
of her daughters was memorable. Annie loves
country music and dancing. But the most
memorable trip was about 44 years ago when she
and her five children flew to the Bahamas for a
two-week vacation. Her youngest son learned to
swim in the pool there swimming in the ocean
was unsafe due to barracudas. Annie enjoyed the
beach, crabbing, shelling and observing the
natives as they made their hats and bags and
various items for sale.
Some years back, Annie and daughter Cindy
Rogers Macy were featured in the Suwannee
Democrat because of an unusual discovery. After
Hurricane Frances, Annie was cleaning her yard
of debris and saw something shiny amidst the
mess. It turned out to be a ring. She cleaned it
and showed it to her daughter who realized it
was her 1980 high school class ring, lost for
seventeen years.
Annie is a very busy woman. She is a member
of First Advent Church, the food coordinator for
Live Oak Senior Citizens, walks a mile-plus
every day, mows and maintains her large yard
and many flowers, loves music and dances at the
Spirit of the Suwannee a couple of times a month
(with boyfriend Calvin).
Life did not start out easy for Annie as she was
the daughter of a sharecropper, but as you can
tell, she lives everyday with a big smile and lots
of laughter, family and friends. Thank you,
Annie, for being the smiling friendly face that so
many Suwannee Countians remember.

'DOGS CRUSHED




BY CRUSADERS

By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

The Suwannee Bulldogs lost their last
home game of the season 59-7 to district
foe Jacksonville Bishop Kenny Friday
night. Suwannee falls to 2-7, 0-4 in Dis-
trict 3-3A. The Crusaders improve to 6-3
(2-2).
"They (Bishop Kenny) kind of domi-
nated from the whole thing real quick,"
said Suwannee head coach Tommy
Chambers. "Bishop Kenny was a lot
more talented than we were."
Quarterback David Campbell com-
pleted 11 of 25 passes for 167 yards. He
also had 45 rushing yards on 11 carries.


Defensively the 'Dogs could not hold
Bishop Kenny, which amassed 260
throwing yards and about 300 rushing.
"We gave up about 560 yards total of-
fensively to them," Chambers said.
The 'Dogs take on the Tigers of Co-
lumbia County in Lake City Friday in
defense of the Oaken Bucket, which
Suwannee won last year. This is the last
game of the season for the 'Dogs.
Come out and support the 'Dogs for
their last game.

mocrat.com for video clips of the last
home game performances of the season
by the Suwannee High Band and the
SHS football cheerleading squad.


SPORTS COMMENTARY

Quarterback David Campbell rushes the ball during a match against Bishop Kenny.


Bulldog Review
By Tom Daniels
The 'Dogs did not look very good
in their last home game of the
season. Decimated by injuries and
with no hope of postseason play,
they were lackluster and it showed.
But the gauntlet has been thrown
down by Columbia County.
"There will come a time in
Columbia football where we'll beat
teams by 50 points every night...."
- Gainesville Sun Page 6C Nov. 8
edition.
Bulldog players, I think this is
*aimed at you. I cannot remember the
last Bulldog team that has won the
Oaken Bucket back to back. You've
got a chance to create history we
won't soon forget. Go 'Dogs, and
remember, seniors, for most of you
this is the last football game you will
ever play.


Orlando, FL (November 7, 2008) The
last race of any season is always sad
but for Daniel Keene, Jr. it was his
seventh win of the season and seeing
himself as the 2008 FASCAR Late
Model Challenge Series Champion.
Fifteen cars came to the little "bull-
ring" to try their luck with Jason Vail
setting fast time for the 100 lap event.
Vail pulled a 3 for the inversion putting
Travis Hanson on the pole for the race
with Jeremy Colangelo on the outside.
Top five for the start were Travis Han-
son, Jeremy Colangelo, Jason Vail,
Rich Clouser, and Daniel Keene, Jr.
With summer finally fading into fall,
when the sun went down, out came the
jackets and perfect weather for a race.
Not too hot, not too cold, perfect.
But it was not to be as before a lap
was down, Bobby Good, Jessica Mur-
phy and Blake Lehr found themselves

all tangled up in the turns 1 and 2 wall.
Lehr was okay and able to continue on
but Murphy and Good saw their night
end before they even began. A com-
plete restart was in order.
On the second green, Jeremy Colan-
gelo quickly jumped to the point fol-
lowed by Travis Hanson, Rich Clouser,
Jason Vail and Daniel Keene, Jr. The
shuffle continued as Vail passed
Clouser for third and Chuck Abell went
for a wild ride through the grass on the
backstretch without bringing out the
caution and continued on as everyone
chased Jeremy Colangleo.
Bad luck came out for Todd Allen
who looked to have lost a drive shaft
coming down the backstretch with
small parts flying into the air. Allen is
aiming straight for the turn 3 wall but
somehow keeps the car off causing no
more damage. Allen is towed into the


pits with 12 cars remaining in the field.
Restart lap 17 with Colangelo leading
the way over Hanson, Vail, Clouser,
Keene, Joe Winchell, Chad Pierce, Alan
Bruns, Blake Lehr, Alexis Fenton,
Chuck Abell and Christopher Gillespie.
Pierce puts the pressure on Winchell
for sixth but Winchell closes the door
and maintains his position. Chuck
Abell retires his car for the night.
Colangelo continues to lead the way
as Blake Lehr takes advantage of the
Winchell/Pierce battle for sixth. Lehr
sees an advantage as he passes both
57's and takes over sixth followed by
Winchell and then Pierce. It is now
Colangelo, Hanson, Vail, Clouser,
Keene, Lehr, Pierce, Bruns, Winchell,
Gillespie and Fenton.

FASCAR Late Model Challenge Champion to be

Crowned this Friday Night at Orlando SpeedWorld


Orlando, Fl. The FASCAR Late
Model Challenge will run their final
race of 2008 this Friday at Orlando
SpeedWorld. With eight races under
their belt, it has been an up and down
year for the drivers.
Daniel Keene, Jr. has won six of the
eight races and looks to be the 2008
FASCAR Late Model Champion.
Keene leads the points with 916 over
second place Jeremy Colangelo with
815.
A.J. Curreli and Rich Clouser have
been the only other two drivers who
have visited Victory Lane this year be-
sides Keene.
Twenty two drivers ran the first race
of the year at New Smyrna Speedway
where A.J. Curreli took the win at his
home track. But not far behind Curreli
was Keene. The Challenge moved on to
Orlando SpeedWorld next in May
where twenty cars came to test their
luck at the "bullring."
Keene took that win followed by
Darren Brown.
Twenty four cars ran at USA Interna-


tional in June where Keene took the
win followed by Colangelo. Little did
the drivers know at that time that would
be the last time the Challenge would
ever run USA International as it was
sold in August and never to be a race-
track again.
Only eight cars made the trip to Co-
lumbia Motorsports Park in the latter
part of May. Keene took the win at Co-
lumbia followed by once again Jeremy
Colangelo.
On July 19, the Challenge went back
to New Smyrna Speedway with twenty
cars. Of course July is one of the
hottest months of the year but it did not
stop Rich Clouser from taking the win
that day. Rich, a previous champion in
the Goodyear Challenge Late Model
Series, was extremely happy and hot.
Jeremy Colangelo took second that
night.
On Aug. 10, the Challenge moved to
Desoto Super Speedway where they
had a joint race with the Turner Tree
Late Models of Desoto. With eighteen
cars in the field, Keene took the win


followed by Joe Winchell.
Sept. 13 saw the Challenge back at
New Smyrna Speedway with twenty
one cars in the field. Daniel Keene, Jr.
took the win followed by Rich Clouser
and Jeremy Colangelo. On Oct. 25 the
Challenge returned once again to New
Smyrna with only thirteen cars in the
field but the same top three were in the
finish as the Sept. 13 race, Keene,
Clouser and Colangelo.
The Challenge heads back to Orlando
where their Champion will be crowned
and they will see the end of the 2008
season.
"This has been a really crazy sea-
son," said Race Director Scott Jackman.
"Gas has been up and down like a yo-
yo and made it very hard on our drivers
and teams this year. We understood that
but would like to thank all the teams
and drivers for their support in 2008."
"Hopefully things will get much bet-
ter for everyone in 2009 and we look
forward to a new year."

Wildlife officials to test

hunter-harvested ducks

for avian influenza
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) and United States De-
partment of Agriculture Wildlife Services bi-
ologists will collect samples from hunter-
harvested ducks to test for highly pathogenic
avian influenza H5N1. Sampling will oc-
cur at various times during the migratory
game bird hunting season at several duck-
hunting hot spots throughout Florida.
Hunters will not need to surrender their
ducks, and participation is voluntary. Biolo-
gists will obtain the samples by swabbing
the ducks' respiratory and digestive tracts.
Scientists at a diagnostic lab will test the
samples for avian influenza and other dis-
eases.
The sampling is part of a continuing inter-
national surveillance effort to determine if
migratory birds carry the highly pathogenic
H5N1 strain of avian influenza in North
America. Last year, more than 65,000 sam-
ples were collected nationwide, including
more than 1,200 samples from Florida. None
of the samples tested positive for the virus,
including the 481 collected at check stations
in Florida's wildlife management areas.
While it is extremely un-
likely that hunters could
contract aviaq influenza
from wild birds in Florida,
officials recommend taking
N common-sense precautions
S to reduce the risk of con-
tracting any disease from
wildlife. For instance, do
not harvest or handle wild
birds that are obviously
S sick or found dead; wear
rubber gloves while clean-
ing game; clean game out--
"I TA N doors and stay upwind of
game while cleaning; and
do not eat, drink or smoke
while cleaning game.
It's also important to
wash hands with soap and
water immediately after
handling game or cleaning
bird feeders. Wash tools
and work surfaces used to
clean game birds with soap
and water, then disinfect
with a 10 percent bleach
solution.
In addition, hunters
should separate raw meat,
and anything it touches;

The Florida Wildlife Federation lauds election victories for wildlife conservation


Florida voters have once again demon-
strated their commitment to land conser-
vation as a major tenet of state environ-
mental policy. Voters overwhelmingly ap-
proved Constitutional Amendment 4 for
land conservation after a statewide cam-
paign, led by the Florida Wildlife Federa-
tion, Audubon of Florida, and the Nature
Conservancy, and supported by a broad
coalition of conservation advocates.
The amendment will encourage the
preservation of thousands of acres of
valuable habitat by relieving private
property owners of property taxes when
they protect their lands through a perma-
nent conservation easement.
Amendment 4 passedwith the support
of over 68% of the Florida electorate,
signifying a great opportunity to con-
serve wildlife habitat through private


lands stewardship efforts, and continuing
Florida's proud tradition of land conser-
vation.
The Federation, along with its many
conservation supporters, brought the idea
forward through the Florida Taxation and
Budget Reform Commission, and suc-
ceeded in providing new economic in-
centives for the private conservation of
vast acres of Florida wildlife habitat..
Campaign Chairman and FWF Vice Pres-
ident Preston Robertson said, "This
amendment provides an important means
by which Florida landowners can retain
places of special beauty that only Florida
has to offer. We are gratified by the bi-
partisan support our state's citizens have
expressed in passage of this amendment."
In Flagler County, campaign efforts led
by the Florida Wildlife


Federation and local citizen's groups
succeeded in winning new bonding au-
thority for at least $40 million in land ac-
quisition funds for Flagler County. Sixty-
five percent of Flagler County voters ap-
proved ballot Question number 10 for
Conservation. The measure will help Fla-
gler County secure valuable wildlife and
waterway preservation along the Atlantic
coastline. "We laud Flagler County's citi-
zens and leaders in their support of this
timely and necessary measure," said
FWF's Northeast Florida representative
Sara Owen-Gledhill. FWF President
Manley Fuller cited the work of Gledhill
and campaign consultant Sue Mullins as
key to the Flagler victory. "Their tireless
commitment to the ballot campaign was
critical to our success," said Fuller. "The
Federation wishes to thank its members,


partnering conservation organizations,
and the voters, who continue to make
land conservation a priority in Florida."

The Florida Wildlife Federation is a
statewide citizens conservation and edu-
cation organization working for the pro-
tection, enjoyment and wise use of Flori-
da's fish, wildlife and other natural re-
sources. The Florida Wildlife Federation
encourages the public's appreciation of
Florida's environment through sustain-
able, resource-based outdoor recreation.

FWC to stop releasing non-migratory

whooping cranes


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) will discontinue the release of whooping
cranes into Florida's non-migratory flock. The FWC ac-
cepted the recent recommendation from the multi-.
agency International Whooping Crane Recovery Team.
The team created the release program 15 years ago in
an effort to establish a self-sustaining, non-migratory
whooping crane population in Florida. Naturally occur-
ring whooping crane populations in the southeastern
United States disappeared by the 1930s.
Scientists decided to stop releasing cranes into the
non-migratory flock for a variety of reasons, including
problems with survival and reproduction, both of which
have been complicated by drought. Additional consider-
ations included shorter-than-expected life spans, scarcity
of birds for release, project costs and the loss of habitat
from development. The team felt that project resources


and birds produced in captivity could be better used for
other whooping crane releases as well as to maintain the
captive flock.
"It was a tough decision," said FWC biologist Marty
Folk. "Many people were involved, but most agreed that
this was the right decision and the right time to make
it."
From 1993 to 2004, biologists released 289 captive-
raised, non-migratory whooping cranes into Osceola,
Lake and Polk counties in Central Florida. The last re-
leases took place in winter of 2004-2005. FWC biolo-
gists will continue to study the remaining 31 birds.
The FWC was the lead agency in Florida in the coop-
erative effort to establish a non-migratory flock. Major
partners included the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,
U.S. Geological Survey, the Canadian Wildlife Service
and the International Crane Foundation.


As a member of the Whooping Crane Eastern Paitner-
ship, the FWC continues its involvement with a separate
project to reintroduce migratory whooping cranes in the
eastern United States. This flock migrates from Wiscon-
sin to Florida each year. In the coming year, biologists
will release 20 additional whooping cranes into the cur-
rent flock of 68 birds.

grams, visit http://research.MyFWC.com.


Keene takes Win and Championship


Continued From Page 1B

sure on Colangelo as he is
right on his tail but Colangelo
holds the point. Hanson con-
tinues getting right on Colan-
gelo but Colangelo holds on
and does not let Hanson pass.
In the meantime, Chad Pierce
puts the pressure on his team-
mate Blake Lehr and takes
over sixth as Lehr goes to
seventh. It is now Colangelo,
Hanson, Vail, Clouser, Keene,
Pierce, Lehr, Bruns, Winchell,
Gillespie and Fenton.
Keene now has had enough
of fifth place as he puts pres-
sure on Clouser for fourth and
takes it. As it is halfway now,
it is Colangelo, Hanson, Vail,
Keene and Clouser. It is as
though someone turned on the
burner for Keene at halfway
as he now begins his march
towards the front passing Vail
for third. Clouser holds on to
Keene's tail and passes Vail
as he takes over fourth and
Vail goes to fifth.
Winchell begins to put the
heat on Bruns as he tucks
right under him but Bruns
holds on shutting the door to


Winchell. Hanson once again
tries Colangelo and gets
Colangelo loose but Colange-
lo does a great job of holding
on maintaining his position.
Now Hanson finds his hands
full with a very hard charging
Keene on his tail. After chas-
ing Colangelo all night, Han-
son now finds himself in third
as Keene takes over second.
Colangelo is in danger
again as he has a very hard
charging Keene right on his
rear. Keene puts the pressure
on and passes Colangelo and
he sets sail for his seventh
win of the year. It is now
Keene, Colangelo, Hanson,
Clouser, Vail, Pierce, Lehr,
Bruns, Winchell, Gillespie
and Fenton.
Keene is running hard as he
puts Bruns and Winchell a lap
down. Keene begins to build
at least a twenty car lead over
second place Colangelo.
Chad Pierce now passes Vail
for fifth as he begins his
charge towards the front. Just
as everything is getting really
hot, the caution comes out for
debris on the track after Gille-
spie hits the turn 4 wall but


continues on.
With no more cautions, it is
Keene, Colangelo, Hanson,
Clouser, Pierce, Vail, Lehr,
Bruns, Winchell, Gillespie
and Fenton on the restart.
Hanson finds himself side-
ways off turn 2 but does one
fantastic job of holding on to
his car and correcting it.
Pierce puts pressure on
Clouser, just like the old days
when they began racing in
bombers together, and takes
over fourth as Clouser goes to
fifth. Pierce then puts pres-
sure on Hanson who has done
a fantastic job all night and
takes over third as Hanson
settles into fourth. As the
laps run down to 100, it is
Daniel Keene who takes the
win for the final race of the
year and the Championship
followed by Jeremy Colange-
lo, Chad Pierce, Travis Han-
son, Rich Clouser, Jason Vail,
Blake Lehr, Alan Bruns, Joe
Winshell, Christopher Gille-
spie and Alexis Fenton.
Keene and his crew cele-
brate in Victory Lane as they
have had one extraordinary
year. Alan Bruns wins


ROOKIE OF THE YEAR.
A few footnotes: This was
Blake Lehr's first race in the
FASCAR Late Model Chal-
lenge and Chad Pierce as they
have been running in the ASA
South Late Model Series all
this year together as team-
mates.
Chris Gillespie also has
.been running the ASA South
Late Model Series and plans
to run more local Late Model
races next year and do very
little traveling. Pierce and
Lehr have not made an-
nouncements yet as to what
their plans are for next year.

Kids recommend osprey

to be new state bird
The osprey is the winner
in a statewide vote of
fourth through eighth
graders to be Florida's new
official state bird. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) and the Department
of Education teamed up to
conduct the election as a
civics lesson for the kids.
Students across the state
participated in campaign
activities at their schools,
researching their favorite candidates, designing posters
and participating in debates regarding the bird they
would most like to have considered for Florida's state
bird as an alternative to the current state bird, the mock-
ingbird.
The civics lesson for the kids doesn't end with this
vote. They also will have the opportunity to follow this
initiative as the students' selection will go through the
legislative process to decide if the osprey should become
the new state bird. The FWC will prepare a bill for intro-
duction for the 2009 Legislative Session. The bill must
be approved by the House, the Senate and Gov. Charlie
Crist before the osprey is officially designated as the
state bird. Teachers and students can follow this process


at www.vote4bird.org.
'This project gave students the chance to participate in
the democratic process in a very meaningful way," said
Judy Gillan, outreach coordinator for the FWC. "They
learned about exercising their vote, and they will learn
about bills becoming laws. It also gave them an opportu-
nity to learn about some of Florida's greatest species of
birds."
After the osprey, in popularity, were the snowy egret,
great egret, brown pelican and black skimmer. More than
77,000 students voted in Florida, with fourth, fifth and
sixth-graders casting the most votes. Broward, Orange
and Brevard counties had the most students participating,
but students in all counties in Florida were represented in
the vote.


rion Edwards Memorial/Nortiz/Tempaco/Bright House Challenge

per Late Model 75 this Saturday at New Smyrna Speedway


Samsula, FL Saturday night at
New Smyrna Speedway will mark
the second try to run the Marion
Edwards Memorial/Noritz/Tempa-
co/Bright House Challenge Super
Late Model 75. Originally the race
was to run at Orlando SpeedWorld
on Oct. 25 but Mother Nature had
other plans that day and rained the
race out. With close to twenty Su-
per Lates in the pits before the
gates had even opened that day,
Saturday's race should be just as
exciting.
The Hialeah Reunion will also
take place for all Hialeah drivers.
All drivers are welcome to bring
their memories of Hialeah and
share them with their fellow dri-
vers and the fans.
"I grew up going to Palm Beach
Fairgrounds on Sunday and
Hialeah," said Rusty Marcus, Gen-
eral Manager at Orlando Speed-
World. "It was a Sunday tradition
in my family to go to the races
and when Palm Beach Fairgrounds
changed their races from Sunday
to Friday, we would then go to
races at Hialeah on Sunday. It was
then when I got to go to my first
Marion Edwards Memorial. I nev-
er saw him race but I knew there
had to be a lot of history there for
a memorial race."
So Marcus called Marty Little
and Marty Little called other
Hialeah drivers and they all decid-
ed it was a great idea to bring


back the Marion Edwards Memor-
ial. Only problem was that Mother
Nature did not so the race had to
be moved to New Smyrna Speed-
way on Nov. 15.
Background on Marion Ed-
wards, Jr. aka "Little Marion." He
was a second generation driver
with his dad also named Marion.
He was virtually raised at Hialeah
Speedway as his dad was an active
part of the Greater Miami Racing
Association (GMRA) which ran
the speedway from its inception in
1954 until the mid '90s.
As a youngster young Marion
helped his father on his race cars
and aspired to race one day. That
one day came in the late '60s
when he fielded his own Chevelle
late model.
On July 5, 1969 (a Sunday)
Marion and several others from
South Florida towed to New
Smyrna Speedway for a 100 lap
late model special event. In those
days fuels cells were not yet
mandatory in short track cars nor
were drivers required to wear fire
suits for protection.
Edwards' car had a leaking fuel
tank and despite his and others
best efforts they could not com-
pletely stop the leak. In the feature
Edwards' car made contact with
the wall and the leaking fuel ignit-
ed and the car was ablaze. The
bigger problem was that Edwards
was using a seat belt and shoulder

Despite the efforts of Edwards
and some other drivers and crew-
men, they could not release Ed-
wards' belts and he perished in the
fire.
The inaugural Marion Edwards
Memorial 200 was held at Hialeah
in October 1969 with Bobby
Brack the winner and it continued
each year (except 1995) through
2004.
Hialeah Speedway closed in Au-
gust 2005 but no race was held
that year. Of all the big special

Understanding Alzheimer's Disease
Despite first being described more than 100 years ago,
Alzheimer's disease remains a mystery for many reasons. Much of
that mystery surrounds the causes of Alzheimer's, which are still
unknown.
Named for German physician Alois Alzheimer, Alzheimer's
disease was first described in 1906. While much has been studied '| '.
since then, the precise cause, and a subsequent cure, is still difficult ;'
to pinpoint. However, since Dr. Alzheimer first described the .
disease more than a century ago, much has been learned about it, ,
and families would be wise to ascertain as much as possible about .; i
this disease. .
What Is Alzheimer's? -,
According to the Alzheimer's Association, Alzheimer's disease is
a progressive and fatal brain disease. As the disease progresses,
brain cells are destroyed, resulting in problems with memory,
thinking and carrying on daily activities. For some patients, the
disease progresses rapidly. Such patients will quickly lose their
abilities to perform daily activities, including work, hobbies and : .
maintaining a social life. Others, however, can maintain relatively,
normal lifestyles long after their initial diagnosis. -
Though it's common to assume dementia is a part of Alzheimer's, i
that's not entirely true. Alzheimer's is actually a form of dementia '
and is, in fact, the most common form. In some instances,
Alzheimer's combines with another common dementia, vascular
dementia, wherein blood flow to the brain is reduced. Because the II
brain is so connected, when one area begins to deteriorate or slow
down, that negatively affects the rest of the body as well. Therefore,
whenAlzheimer's settles in, the rest of the body is affected, be it
rapidly or gradually.
What Are the Risk Factors?
Chances are, before Dr. Alzheimer first described the disease,ase
Alzheimer's was likely just considered a normal part of aging.
While age is the greatest risk factor (most individuals with the j
disease are .over the age of 65), there are other considerable risk ..
factors as well. f c
What Are the Warning Signs? .
Family history: Over the years, research has indicated that those While there are warning signs indicative of Alzheimer's, just
with a parent, brother or sister with Alzheimer's are at a greater risk because a person exhibits the following signs does not. mean that
for the disease than those without a family history. What's more, the person has Alzheimer's. Some might just be a part of aging.
risk further increases for those with more than one family member However, to be on the safe side,. it's best for anyone exhibiting the
with Alzheimer's, following signs to consult their phsyician.


Head injury: As research continues, it reveals other potential risk
factors besides heredity and genetics. One such development is the
link between serious head injury and Alzheimer's. The Alzheimer's
Organization advocates protecting your head by buckling your seat
belt, wearing a helmet when riding a bicycle or motorcycle, and,
particularly for the elderly, fall-proofing a home.
Connection of the head and the heart: Research has also begun
to show the relationship between heart ailments and Alzheimer's
disease. Because.the heart is responsible for pumping blood to the
brain (each heartbeat pumps roughly 20 to 25 percent of your blood
to your head), ailments such as heart disease, high blood pressure,
stroke, and diabetes can have adverse effects on brain health as
well. That, in turn, can increase a person's risk for Alzheimer's
disease.
Unhealthy lifestyle: How healthily a person ages can also play a
role in increasing or decreasing the risk factor for Alzheimer's
disease. The Alzheimer's organization notes that healthy aging may
help keep the brain healthy and protect it from Alzheimer's. Healthy
aging involves maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding tobacco and
excess alcohol consumption, and exercising regularly.
