 Notes
Review: The Suwannee Democrat LCCN: sn95026787 is one of the oldest continuously published weeklies in the State of Florida. It began publishing in 1884 in the city of Live Oak (FL). Noting the shifting demographics of Florida in the 20th century, in 1906, one observes that Live Oak was the fifth largest city in Florida, preceded only by Jacksonville, Pensacola, Tampa, and Key West. The Suwannee Democrat enjoyed a corresponding reputation as a journalistic leader in early 20th century Florida. For approximately two years, from 1906 through 1907, the weekly Suwannee Democrat was supplemented by the Live Oak (FL) Daily Democrat LCCN: sn95026788. The Suwannee Democrat has won numerous awards from the Florida Press Association, both as in the weekly category and for the quality of its agricultural reporting. In its early days, the Suwannee Democrat reported a Democrat Party affiliation. The newspaper's first editor hid under an assumed name when he was suspected of murder. A deathbed confession by the actual perpetrator allowed him to resume his true identity: F.R. McCormack. Very little else, however, is known of F.R. McCormack. Fires have taken their toll on the Suwannee Democrat. In 1906, a disgruntled printer left by railroad on the night that its offices burned to the ground. Arson again in October 1995, destroyed a historic block of Live Oak's downtown and the newspaper's office was one of the casualties. Lost in the fire were last-known issues of the Suwannee Democrat dating from 1897 through 1900. The issues had just been scheduled for preservation microfilming under the auspices of the U.S. Newspaper Program, when they were destroyed. The event was bitterly regretted and served to show the precariousness of local newspaper archives. Live Oak is the seat of Suwannee County (FL) government. Suwannee County is surrounded on three sides by the Suwannee River. And, its karst topography gives the area an abundance of natural springs and fresh water. Industries of the region, particularly during the early days of the Suwannee Democrat, were lumber, turpentine and cotton. Live Oak was known for its grist and lumber mills. The character of these industries and the regional economy survived through the 1920s, when economic down-turn resulted in change. Change was already being seen as early as 1910, when the poultry underwent industrialization in the county. Poultry took such a strong foothold in Suwannee County that even front yards were cultivated for the production of feed grains. Agriculture and other land-based industries, particularly forestry and related industries, were also seeing change with the establishment of nurseries supplying hybrid bulbs and plants to markets. The Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression brought change and growth to a halt. With recovery, the region became semi-rural. Florida's demographic shifts, both that following World War II and the completion of the Interstate Highway System initiated by Governor Bryant in the 1960s, have marked a trend of increasing urbanization in Suwannee County.--E.

Severance package possible for Wooley


Sunshine violations alleged


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
Suwannee County Com-
mission Chairman Jesse
Caruthers, in response to a
provocative phrase in the
resignation letter of former
County Coordinator Johnny
Wooley, has floated the
idea of offering Wooley a
severance package beyond
what county rules require.
However, a secondary con-

Minivan pulled into
the path of Cheryl
Everly's motor scooter,
resulting in her death

troversy has arisen con-
cerning possible Sunshine
Law violations during an
attempt to gauge board re-
action to such a proposal.
Caruthers told the Demo-
crat Thursday he thought it
wise to offer Wooley some
kind of severance package,
especially considering
Wooley's use of the phrase
"wrongful termination" in a
Nov. 19 letter of resigna-
tion.


"Mr. Wooley never
threatened a lawsuit, it was
Mr. (commissioner Dou-'
glas) Udell who mentioned'
a possible lawsuit and as
chairman of the board, I
thought it prudent to put
this package together for
the board to approve,"
Caruthers said by phone.
"I don't know if Mr.
Wooley threatened a law-
suit or not," said Udell
when contacted by the De-
mocrat. "Johnny Wooley

Wellborn ew


The Wellborn community association


and the Wellborn neighborhood watch


By Ruth Ford


I moved to the Well-
born area about three ' '
years ago. After joining ' .
a church, I became ':
-friends with the Pastor ..
and his wife. They be-
longed to the Wellborn
Community Association
and the Wellborn Neigh- ,
borhood Watch and in- .
vited me to come to the
meetings. In joining both
groups, I have found, not
only friends, but friends
that care for others and
their community. NEV- Ruth Ford
ER have I known such a
community!!!!
Not long after I joined the Wellborn Neighborhood
Watch, we were approached by the friends of a person
who had been in a devastating car accident and was in
serious need of help. The members decided to do a
benefit for this young person. Everyone in the organi-
zation was. 100% behind this fund-raising benefit and
all pitched in to be cooks, bring desserts, help serve
and ask for donations. The benefit was a huge success
and the first of many we have held over the time I
have been with the organization.
Not only do we do benefits for those in extreme
need, we use our own vehicles and patrol the neigh-
borhoods and report to the Sheriff's office any suspi-
cious activity. We are trained by Sheriff personnel


what to look for, what is unusual and what heeds to be
reported (example: If we go to a food market and see
a car backed into a spot near the door with the engine
running, we are on top alert with cell telephones ready
for 911.)
At WNW's regular monthly meetings, the commu-
nity liaison member contacts different community
leaders (Sheriff, judges, forestry service, school board,
hospice, etc.) to come and speak with us about what
their organizations are doing - how and why. All the
speakers have been well prepared and very informa-
tive, giving information about "behind the scenes" op-
erations that folks aren't usually privy to.
The Wellborn Community Association is a wonder-
ful organization with many different contributions for
the community. All know about the famous Wellborn
Blueberry Festival and the Blueberry Pancake Break-
fasts, which not only are community events but also
fund raisers for other community activities. There is
so much more - purchasing and donating school
supplies, Halloween and Christmas parties for the area
children (gifts and goodies), a community Thanksgiv-
ing dinner (the Saturday before Thanksgiving). And
what is so wonderful about both these organizations in
Wellborn is the SPIRIT. The folks just jump in and
"get r done" - whatever it is.
Before each meeting of both organizations, we have
a covered dish dinner (always plenty of food) and en-
joy playing "catch up" with our friends and fellow
members. Social, but with a BIG purpose!!! I, for one,
am a proud member of both organizations and would
invite others in the Wellborn area to come on out and
be a part of the working, caring community. You'll be
glad you did.

Here's a peek at what's inside the Friday, Dec. 12
American Profile, which is a bonus newsmagazine in each
weekend edition of the Democrat.

Cover Story: Extreme Deliveries: Transporting the
U.S. Mail via land, air, and water - While most mailmen
have their mundane delivery routes throughout the.
suburbs or city, a handful of postal carriers go to extreme
lengths to deliver the mail. Here, we profile mailmen who
deliver by mule at the Grand Canyon, by seaplane in the
wilds of Alaska, and by boat on the Detroit River.
Hometown Hero: Sharing Classical Music - In 1990,
cellist Evan Drachman created the Piatigorsky Foundation
in honor'of his grandfather, famed cellist Gregor
Piatigorsky. The foundation brings world-class musicians
to perform live classical music in smaller communities
that would otherwise not have the opportunity to hear it.

widows during the holidays. It's a tradition that continues,
except today the widows receive flour and sugar.

Jerry Scarborough, former
executive director of the Suwannee
River Water Management District,
was named the 2008 Conservation
Partner of the Year by the United
States Department of Agriculture's
Natural Resources Conservation
Service (NRCS). Scarborough
accepted his award at the NRCS
State Technical Committee meeting
in Gainesville.
Scarborough is a native of north
central Florida and a University of
Florida graduate. After 18 years as
executive director of the Suwannee
River Water Management District,
Scarborough officially retired May
31. He started with the district in
1990. Prior to that, he served as
Suwannee County Clerk of the Court
for 14 years and. is a former editor of
the Suwannee Democrat newspaper.
Under. Jerry's leadership, the district
initiated a'number of innovative
partnership programs to protect
natural resources while promoting
rural economic development. These
programs include the Suwannee River
Partnership, the Suwannee River
Wilderness Trail, Quality Communities,
and the Suwannee Basin Interagency
Alliance. Earlier this month Scarborough
won his election to become Suwannee
County Superintendent of Schools.
Since 1999, when the partnership
began, 99 percent of poultry farmers, 90
percent of dairies, and 70 percent
(representing more than 100,000 acres)
of crop farmers in the Suwannee
watershed have agreed to use
agricultural conservation Best
Management Practices in their
fertilizations, irrigation and waste
utilization practices. Better managed
fertilizer, animal waste, and irrigation
equals cleaner water for everyone. Over
1 billion gallons of water were saved last
year per crop because of irrigation
upgrades with the assistance of the
partnership and NRCS.
Carlos Suarez, state conservationist for
the NRCS cited Scarborough's
leadership of the Suwannee River ,
Partnership as the main reason for the
award.
"Jerry Scarborough was a major player
in the organization and success of the,
Suwannee River Partnership, of which
NRCS is a partner," observed Suarez.
"We thank him for his outstanding
leadership and his assistance in NRCS's
mission of 'helping people help the
land'."

James Andy Denmark of Live-Oak has been awarded a music scholarship to North Flori-
da Community College for the 2008-09 academic year. Denmark's love for music began
at Suwannee High where he learned to play the trumpet. He has since been enrolled in
NFCC's music program and performed with the Jazz Ensemble for two years, while
studying and playing the drums and piano. Denmark sees his future in music. He plans,
to major in Jazz at Florida State University and to then pursue a music-related career.,
"After college I plan on becoming a musical performer and perhaps a music instructor,"
said Denmark. Denmark is set to graduate from NFCC in May 2009. - Photo: Submitted

The spirit


of giving

As Vanessa Fultz re-
ports on today's front
page, need runs high in
our community this holi-
day season. Alan Beden-
baugh, who heads up the
Live Oak Fire Depart-
ment's annual Toys for
Sparky's Kids campaign,
says gift requests this
season are the highest
he's seen in his 19 years
at the agency.
Fultz tells of one
woman, a reliable con-
tributor to another orga-
nization, who was this
year forced to seek help
herself. God bless us,
every one.
Things will get better -
they always do. In the
meantime, let's do what
we've always done when
things get rough. Reach
out, find those in need,
and help however we
can. Based on what
we've seen, we're off to a
good start.

OPINION


Be careful with honorary black belt


By Dwain Walden
On a quiz program the
other night, a contestant
told the host that he held
an honorary black belt in
karate. My immediate
conclusion was, I,would
rather have a real tire tool than an hon-
orary black belt in karate. And that as-
tute reasoning is not because I hold an
honorary PhD. It just comes from obser-
vations along my journey.
And if I was holding an honorary
black belt relative to any kind of martial
art and a fight broke out, I would say,
"Here, hold this honorary belt for me, I
-forgot something back at the house".And
I would be described as having fled the
scene on foot.
To me an honorary black belt is about
as valuable as a warm bucket of spit, un-
less you've got really baggy pants, and
then maybe you can find some practical
application.
Many times I've heard of people being
bestowed honorary degrees.
Basically that means someone or some
group really likes having you around and
they want to make you feel very warm
and fuzzy. They could just as well shake
your hand, give you a cup of coffee and


a peck of peaches and obtain the same
results.
Over in England the Queen Mother
has a tendency to "knight" people. ,
For instance, the famous singer Elton
John is Sir Elton John. He has been
touched on each shoulder and the top of
his head with a special sword and his
knighthood is proclaimed. It means that
he has honored his homeland really well
by being a famous singer. It doesn't
mean that he is being charged to go out
and slay dragons or lead a well- trained
army against a bunch of country folks
wielding pitchforks and wearing plaid
skirts.
Now I'm not belittling the process of
bestowing honors to special people.
There are many out there who deserve to
be recognized. Many people don't know
this, but President elect Barack Obama
has won two Grammys for books he has
written. (It was his spoken-word or au-
dio versions that brought him these hon-
ors.)
I have won a few awards along the
way. My most cherished award is called
the "Horse's Ass Award" presented dur-
ing a roast of sorts at a "Hogeye City"
fish fry many years ago. It followed
some controversial issues in which I


would not be bought off. It was given in
good spirit, I think. I value it greatly. It's
proudly displayed on the shelf behind
my desk this very day. And I would not
trade it for an honorary black belt in
karate, kung fu or karaoke. Yes, I know
karaoke has nothing to do with physical
combat. But it does have Asian connota-
tion. I think it was payback to America
for Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It's a subtle
way of inflicting pain upon people who
would just like to sit quietly drinking
their Jack Daniels and contemplating the
lint in their navels.
But understand that honorary stuff has
its limitations. And as a columnist, I feel
compelled sometimes to offer some
nuggets of socially redeeming value.
That said, never put on your honorary
black belt in karate, go into a biker bar,
order hot chocolate and ask who owns
that silly looking scooter that you just
ran over. Think things through. Analyze
cause and effect. And limit your hon-
orary black belt to being a condiment to
your bathrobe.

Florida-grown Christmas trees presented
to state leaders at capitol


, Florida Agriculture Commissioner.
Charles H. Bronson recently presented
freshly cut Florida-grown Christmas trees
to the Governor and Cabinet officers at
The Capitol. Bronson was accompanied
by Tony and Debbie Harris, operators of
Ergle Christmas Tree Farm in Dade City,
who grew the trees and presented them on
behalf of the Florida Christmas Tree As-
sociation.
"Buying homegrown Florida Christmas
trees helps support our farmers and it
boosts our state's economy," Bronson
said. "It's also an easy way to help make
your holidays more 'green,' because buy-
ing locally grown trees is better for the
environment since less fuel is used in
transportation."


The Official State Christmas Tree,
which will be on display in the Gover-
nor's Office, was selected by the kinder-
garten class from Lacoochee Elementary
School in Pasco County. The class 'visited
the Ergle Christmas Tree Farm and select-
ed the tree at the invitation of Debbie
Harris, who is assistant principal for Cen-
tral High School in Spring Hill. The farm
also donated a tree for their class room.
, Tony and Debbie Harris have been in
the Christmas tree business since 1980,
and are second-generation owners of Er-
gle Christmas Tree Farm, which was
passed on by Debbie's father, Omar Ergle.
The farm grows 20 acres of choose-and-

The 2008 Dance Team from Sharon's School of Dance,
once again came home successful from competition. This
is the 10th year that Sharon's has attended and competed
at the Dance Makers, Inc. workshop, in Daytona Beach.
There they participate in master classes of Ballet, Jazz,
Tap, and Hip Hop, taught by teachers from across the na-
tion and also compete for trophies in their division and
try to qualify to attend National competition in Myrtle
Beach, SC.
This year's team consisted of 12 members: (Junior
Team) Alexis Dalton, Ashton Harrell, Erika Hayes, Cara
Seaman, Ashley Todd, (Teen Team) Kaila Dalton, Car-
men Gray, Lilly Henderson, Lynn Liles, Morgan Load-
holtz, Katrinh Sivyer, and Jessica Willis. The Junior
Team competed in Junior Group Jazz with "Tropical Sen-
sation" and earned a 2nd place. The Teen Team competed
in Teen Group Tap with "Money Makes the World Go
'Round" and earned a 1st place, qualifying them for Na-
tionals. Both competition routines were choreographed
by teacher, Shannon McCook.
Congratulations also go out to Miss Shannon, who was
selected for the Marjorie Perry "Spirit Award." Marjorie
Perry was the founder of Dance Makers, Inc., who passed
away several years ago. Her family began honoring her
memory by selecting one teacher in each city where their
workshop is held. They select someone who they feel is
continuing Marjorie's legacy by inspiring young dancers
and sharing her love of dance with the world. Miss Shan-
non will attend the National convention this summer,
where one teacher will be selected as the National; win-,
ner.
The Dance Team, Miss Sharon, and Miss Shannon
would like to thank the MANY people who have support-
ed them through fundraisers and more. In this eco(ooin-
cally hard time, the dancers could not make it with out
the continuing support from their community.

This Syndrome May Require Several Drugs
Metabolic syndrome, a combination of conditions related to
metabolism, can increase a person's risk for stroke, heart disease, and
diabetes. Increased blood pressure, elevated insulin, excess
abdominal fat, and abnormal cholesterol levels are usual components
of the metabolic syndrome. All may be attributable to the body's
resistance to insulin. Insulin resistance prevents glucose from
entering cells as it normally would, leading to increased levels of
insulin and glucose in the blood. Increased blood levels of glucose
may lead to diabetes. Increased insulin causes triglycerides to
increase and blood pressure to increase.
When lifestyle changes such as a healthy diet and regular exercise
do not work to bring blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose levels
back into the normal ranges, medications may be prescribed. There
are a variety of medications available for the control of high blood
pressure. Thiazide diuretics, beta blockers, and angiotensin
converting enzyme inhibitors are several different types of
medications that work to decrease blood pressure. For abnormal
levels of cholesterol, stations, fibrates, and niacin may be prescribed.
Metformin and sulfonylureas be prescribed to treat diabetes. In
addition, treatment with aspirin may help to decrease the risk of heart
attack and stroke. 492400-F

CCS to host presentation on the importance of wills and special needs trusts


What will happen to my child if I am not here to care
for them? Families of children with developmental and
intellectual disabilities will no longer be left in the dark
on this question. According to Bobbie Lake, Executive
Director of Comprehensive Community Services located
in Live Oak, "Parents of children with a disability like
mental retardation, cerebral palsy or autism face huge
challenges in locating information that will help them
plan for the future of their child."
Lake indicated that many families his agency works
with are not aware of the importance of establishing le-
gal guardianship for their children when they reach age
18.
"Additionally, families are at an even greater loss
when the discussion turns to the importance of establish-
ing a Will and a Special Needs Trust to protect their
child's future," Lake added.
To provide area families with more information to help
them make the right choices, Comprehensive Communi-
ty Services, Inc., has arranged with the McConnaughhay
Law Group, P.A. to have Lauchlin T. Waldoch, Certified
Elder Law Attorney, speak with area families on the im-
portance of having a properly written Will and a Special
Needs Trust.- Mrs. Waldoch will also be available to an-
swer questions concerning guardianship with the partici-
pants during the meeting.

in working with parents and guardians of children with

sponses we have already received, we are expecting a
fairly large turnout from families from the local area as
well as from the neighboring counties."
"The Importance of a Will and a Special Needs Trust"
will be presented on-Monday, Dec. 15, from 6:30 - 8

A. Angular cheilitis is another of the
conditions the older person confronts.
It's the name of the condition in which
the corners of the mouth become
chapped and inflamed. As people age,
the skin's cells contain less water and
the tissue holds less fat. One visible
result of this evolution is development of
"purse-string" wrinkles that radiate from
the lips. In some cases, particularly
those in which tooth loss or wear
contributes to loosening of the skin, the
wrinkles can get especially deep at the
corners of the mouth. Chapping and
inflammation come about as a result of
repeated wetting and drying from
licking. Vitamin deficiency can contribute
to the condition.
A yeast infection, or candidiasis, is not
uncommon with angular cheilitis. Yeasts
are a vadety of fungi. The most common
of these is called Candida albicans,
which Is normally found in the mouth.
Candidiasis in the mouth is commonly
referred to as thrush. Talk with your
dentist about ways to avoid the onset
and other age-related oral conditions.

The North Florida Community College Science
Department has an exciting new teaching tool that
S can take students on a'three dimensional journey of
the cosmos - an inflatable planetarium. Twenty-
three feet in diameter, the inflatable and portable
| ^ planetarium offers audiences a three dimensional vi-
� sual experience where celestial bodies, astronomical
phenomena and re-creations of the night sky can be
displayed on the planetarium's domed ceiling.
From the outside, NFCC's planetarium is a large
)1S blue dome inflated by a high velocity fan. The plan-
etarium is easily and quickly set-up and can com-
fortably seat about 20 to 25 people. A zippered
opening on the side allows individuals to enter the
planetarium.
Once inside a projector re-creates the night-sky
and areas of the universe on the planetarium ceiling.
Stars and planets are accurately positioned and the
projector can be commanded to display different
views of the heavens from different positions on
Earth as well as different seasons or times of day.
The projector can also play movie type planetarium
shows.
Currently NFCC has three 40-minute shows in-
cluding "Extreme Planets," "Black Holes" and "Ul-
timate Universe" and according to NFCC instructor
Dr. Tony DeLia, the college's planetarium and
shows are portable and can be taken to area middle
schools and high schools.
'The planetarium's primary role is to serve as a
teaching tool that can be taken out into NFCC's dis-
trict," said DeLia. "The planetarium can be set-up
on the NFCC campus or taken to schools that have
enough space, such as a gym or other large inside
area."
The planetarium,shows:are-state ofthe.,arti CGI
(computer-generated imagery) created by Clark,
Planetarium Productions. DeLia uses the presenta-
tions in his Introduction to Astronomy course which
is being offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from
uctor 9:30-10:45 a.m. beginning Jan. 7.
ind "The presentations are educational and interesting
out- and the visual experience is fun," said DeLia.

Loving pets for you from the Suwannee County Animal Shelter


By Ana Smith

To everyone who stopped by our booth
at "Christmas On The Square" to buy a
baked goodie and/or make a donation,
many thanks for making this a successful
venture. Thanks for the many. many nice
comments about our work and effective-
ness, and stories of your own pet that you
rescued or adopted. And my personal
thanks to all the volunteers who stepped
up when I called and baked their sweet
hearts out to provide a baker's delight of
assortments of baked goodies, as well as
those special folks who helped put up our
tent and tables. You know %who you are.
and I will thank you again when I see
you.
I hope you stayed to watch the parade,
one of the free events that I look forw% ard
to every Christmas. And I hope you no-
riced the float our shelter had in the night
parade, complete with some of our volun-
teers and their own pets adopted from our
shelter. As volunteers we have worked
very hard to promote the need for our
shelter and the services it provides to
Suwannee County. It's with great pride
that we show off the wonderful pets that
were once strays or abused and neglected
animals, and it is your financial and
moral support that keeps our shelter oper-
ating.
Our volunteers work very hard taking
care of the animals at our shelter. From
cleaning cages and pens, washing bowls
and litter pans, feeding and playing with
the cats and kittens, and walking and so-
cializing the dogs. they are the caring
folks who do all this out of their love of
animals, donating a few hours every
week to make sure our furry residents get
the care they need. Our staff is very
small.........just two animal control offi-
cers and one part-time office w ork-
er........and they work hard and tirelessly
to answer dozens of calls daily, appear in
court when necessary, intermediate in an-
imal disputes, and still care for the ani-
mals and all that comes %with running an
animal shelter.
We have so many animals right novw in
our shelter who need good loving homes.
Some of them are coming close to the
end of their time with us. Wouldn't it be
wonderful if they had a loving "forever"
home before Chrstrma.s? Come and visit
our-helter, and maybe you'll find one
that you would like to take into your
home. If you are looking for a yard dog,
he or she is probably sitting in one of our
kennel runs just waiting for you to take it
home. If you wanLa smaller dog to be a
companion to your child, or your parent
who lives alone, or for yourself, we just
might hase the one for you. Do you want
a barn cat or two? We have a few that are
spared or neutered that would be perfect.
Or if you want a cat to cuddle in your lap
and purr with contentment, we have
many to choose from. And we still hae
kittens and young cats in our foster pro-
gram that are ready to go to good homes.
Just ask one of our staff and they'll put
you in touch with one of those foster
families.
We are located at 11150 144th Street.
just off highway 129 on the same road as
the big county landfill. We are open on
Monday from 9:00 a m. to 3:30 p.m.. on
Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m.. and on Saturday from 9:00
a.m. to about noon. If you plan to come
out on Saturday, please call first to make
sure there is someone at the shelter since
only one control officer is on duty and
may have to go out on a call. The shelter
number is 208-0072. God bless!


This is just one of a few multi-colored cats in foster care.
Very lovable, purrs Ipud enough to be heard across the This male kitten likes to cuddle and play, but is also very

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

A Live Oak man was arrested Friday
and charged with grand theft for allegedly
stealing electronic equipment worth ..
$10,000. Jason Edward Coulter, 19, of -
7474 137th Place, was arrested and .
booked into the Suwannee County Jail,

Shortly before 4:30 p.m., Suwannee
County Sheriffs Deputy Donnie Brown saw Coulter run-


ning toward a parked van carrying a black duffle bag, ac-
cording to reports.
Coulter reportedly told Brown he found the bag and
was taking it to his vehicle to see what was inside, but
did not intend to steal it. A few minutes later a represen-
tative of a local firm arrived on the scene and identified
the bag as belonging to his company. he reportedly told
authorities he had briefly left the bag unattended for
about five minutes. He said the bag contained a transmit-

"This is something that
we are trying to do in the
forefront to change our
rules and regulations and
you are actually penalizing
good employees for com-
ing to work," Robinson
told the Democrat Thurs-
day, noting that prior to
1993, county rules com-
pensated former employees
for 100 percent of accumu-
lated leave and sick time.
Caruthers said he fa-
vored board discussion of
the issue at the next com-
mission meeting, on Dec.
16.
The other issue that has
arisen in regard to the mat-
ter concerns possible Sun-
shine Law violations.
Udell claims that Robin-
son was ordered by
Caruthers to gather insight
into how the other com-
missioners felt about such
a package. This, claimed .


Udell, would have violated
the state's Sunshine Law.
"I'm not going to do any-
thing that is illegal and if it
is illegal Udell won't be in-
volved in it," Udell said by
phone Thursday.
"I didn't ask Donald to
seek advice from any other
commissioners," Caruthers
said when asked for com-
ment by the Democrat.
"My motive and method
was to put this thing to a
rest."
Caruthers said he asked
Robinson to gauge Woo-
ley's feelings on the ques-
tion of a severance pack-
age, and that Robinson act-
ed on his own in consult-
ing with other commission-
ers. Robinson said he nev-
er shared the opinions of
the other commissioners -
those who offered an opin-
ion - with Caruthers.
Wooley was fired by a 3-
2 vote at a contentious

Saturday afternoon with
eldest son, Hunter. Both
were simulating bow hunt-
ing in a tree stand to pre-
pare for a hunting trip.
When Abercrombie at-
tempted to climb down to
collect the arrows, the ex-
tension ladder buckled and
gave way, said Mixon.
Abercrombie was life-
flighted to Shands UF
where he was listed in crit-
ical condition in the inten-
sive care unit Tuesday
morning, according to a
hospital spokeswoman.
Tuesday marked 72
hours since the accident -
the time when swelling of
the brain reaches a maxi-
mum, doctors told the
family.
"He is still pretty deep '
in the woods but on the
right side of the fence,"
Hunter Abercrombie
said Tuesday morning.
"It's still a waiting game.
We're holding on." Hunter
said his father has two
blood clots in the rear por-
tion of his brain and a con-


tusion on the front. ,
Abercrombie underwent
surgery Saturday night to
relieve pressure on his
brain caused by swelling.
He is not in a coma but is
kept heavily sedated.
Hunter,said his father
did well Monday and
Monday night and was do-
ing well so far Tuesday
morning.
"He did respond and
blink his eyes," said
Hunter. "It's good but not
significant. He shows ,
good signs and all signs
are positive but he is walk-
ing a real thin line."
In an email, Abercrom-
bie's wife Angela ex-
pressed the family's appre-
ciation for the communi-
ty's support and continued
prayer for her husband's
recovery. Hunter said 75-
80 friends and family
members have rallied
around them at the hospi-
tal.

has also gotten calls from
the general public asking

Williams said hard eco-

abuse and neglect more
likely to happen."

Angela Ford Angela Ford, 31, of 19528 CR 132, was
arrested Thursday and booked into the

Ford went to Jacksonville on May 21 to collect $650

woman returned home from the hospital on May 31, she
found that none of the bills had been paid, reports show.
The alleged victim then called the health care agency,
Family Life Care, and learned that Ford's employment
there had ended on April 18, authorities say. She attempt-

Big win on homecoming for Melody



Robinson and Gill crowned


By TJ Westberry
Efficient offense and disciplined defense lead the
Wildcats (8-0) to their eighth victory as they de-
feated Seacoast Christian 70-20 on Melody's
homecoming night.
The first quarter was typically fast paced Melody
Christian game as they hit three quick three's,
recorded seven steals and forced nine turnovers as
they outscored their opponents 20-2. The second
quarter would mirror the first as Melody added 30
points making the score 50-7 at the half. Antonio
Fields had the hot hand hitting four three pointers
and Laurence Whitmore making every play imag-
inable dishing out eight assists and recording four
steals in the first half.
The third would begin with running clock in
play. Keeping the same intensity the Wildcats
closed out the game 70-20.
With practically two quarters of play Fields was
the game high scorer df the night with 18. Fields
also had two blocks to go along with his four
threes. Shawn Jackson scored 12 points, snatched
11 rebounds and guarded the basket strongly swat-
ting six shots as he earned his eighth double-dou-
ble on the year. Whitmore ended with 13 points,
nine assists and five steals continuing his solid
play. Brandon Raines hit a three, had four assists
and three steals. DeMarcus Jelks played strong off
the bench scoring eight points and coming up with
eight rebounds. Vernon Hampton also had eight
points.
TheMelody Wildcats move to 8-0 overall and 6-
0 in the district. They face Shores Christian this
Friday at the Coliseum at 7:30 p.m.
The academy crowned Tyler Gill and Skye
Robinson this year's Homecoming King and

son and Valerie Baker were there to crown the two
winners in front of family and friends. Shawn

Augie Grill takes

back-to-back Snowball

Derby victories

Brian Ickler Disqualified
from 41st Annual Event Win,
Giving Title to Grill Again

Augie Grill won his second straight Snowball Derby at
Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida 6n Sunday
night. Grill actually finished the 41st annual edition of
the race in the second position, but was awarded the vic-
tory after Brian Ickler's car was found to have unap-
proved tire cooling fans.
Grill started the race in the 38th position and steadily
worked his way through the pack to become a race con-
tender. He led the middle stages of the race, but found
himself with some ground to make up after the final pit
stops. During the last dozen laps of the race, Grill gained
ground on Ickler on the racetrack, but came a little bit
short of catching him.
Approximately two hours after the race, Grill received

SPORTS COMMENTARY



Will O.J.


play again?


We won't have
O.J. to kick
around anymore.
Unless his
sentence is
reduced to dog
years he will be
gone for a long
while. O.J. is not
unique, he is a
product of
special
treatment. There
is that kid with
gosh awful Sportabout
talent, a will to
win and a By Tom Daniels
sense of
team. He grows
up and becomes Roger Staubach or
Andra Davis.,Then there is the kid with a
world of talent and a sense only of "me."
He grows up to be T.O., or Roger
Clemens or,, worse case scenario, O.J.
Simpson. Unlike the rest of us, the laws
of physics and the land cease to exist for
them. It didn't happen overnight.
The kid that doesn't come topractice
but still gets to play? We want to win,
don't we? He comes from a bad home.
The kid who gets to take the special
make-up test to get eligible. He's not
good at math, or if the truth be known,
anything but the sport he plays. And of
course my favorite, everyone deserves a
second chance, or is that third, fourth or
if you have enough talent, unlimited.
Steve Howe was N.L. rookie of the year
and seven arrests later, he still needed
just one more chance. Art Schlichter,
Lawrence Phillips, Maurice Clarett, all
got how many chances? And Pac-man
and Mike Vick and Ricky Williams will
all be future stories on the inside of the
.sports pages.
The problem is since at a small age we,
that's you and me, have made excuses,
looked the other way or never bothered
to say no. O.J. without a doubt thought
he was above the law (not unlike every
ex-president), the difference being, what
have you done for me lately? If O.J. were
a student athlete at USC there would be
petitions and marches to free O.J. If he
was still running the ball for Buffalo we
would hear how he was running with
some bad homes. The league will take
care of it. Not anymore, O.J..has just
sealed the fate of Plaxico Burress and
perhaps extinguished Vick's third
chance. Perhaps some good has come of
this.
After you just say No to digs, say No
to some obnoxious athlete who wants
special treatment because he can throw a
ball 90 miles an hour or run a 4.2. We
have not seen the end but maybe we can
reduce the numbers.

Conservation Commission

Federal Aid in Sport Fish
Restoration

The Federal Aid in Sport Fish
Restoration (SFR) program is
one federal program that really
lives up to its name. For more
than half a century, it has been
one of the best "user-pays, user-
benefits" initiatives anywhere.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has received more than
$11 million each year from these
matching funds to sustain and
enhance public fishing opportu-
nities that return a $7.5 billion


economic benefit to the state
each year and provide 46 million
days of recreational enjoyment.
In 1950, Congressmen Dingell
and Johnson created the original
program in response to a request
from the fishing industry and an-
gling public. Under this pro-
gram, fishing tackle is assessed
an excise fee at the manufactur-
ers' level, and resulting funds are
allocated to state game and fish
agencies.
The original Dingell-Johnson
Act was expanded in 1984,
.through the Wallop-Breaux
Amendment, to include import
duties on sport fishing equip-,
ment, pleasure boats and yachts,
as well as tax revenue from mo-
torboat fuel sales. The U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service determines


Purchasing fishing tackle and fuel
for motorboats contributes to Sport
Fish Restoration, ensuring safe and
sustainable recreational fishing and
boating in Florida.

how much of these taxes are re-
turned to each state, based on its
size and the number of paid fish-
ing license holders. Since Flori-
da, unlike many other states,
does not charge saltwater fishing
license fees to resident shoreline
anglers, nor require any youth
under 16, or resident adult over
65 to purchase a freshwater or
saltwater license, we recover a
somewhat smaller proportion of

FWC proposes change

to lobster traps rule


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) on Thursday proposed a
draft rule amendment to help
control the number of traps al-
lowed in the commercial spinN
lobster fishery'.
The proposed rule amendment
would end the moratorium on
the reduction of lobster trap cer-
tificates and reduce the number
of trap certificates by 10 percent
when individuals sell or transfer
their certificates to someone out-
side their immediate family.
The number of traps used by
commercial lobster harvesters in
Florida grew rapidly until the
early 1990s. %when a program
was implemented to reduce the
number of traps in the fishery.
The goals of this program in-
cluded reducing user conflicts
on the water, lowering the mor-
tality of undersized lobsters used
to attract legal-sized lobsters, in-
creasing the yield of lobsters per
trap. and reducing trap debris
that can harm the marine envi-
ronment.
Commercial lobster harvesters
are required to have a certificate
for each trap they use, and there


ha% e been several mandated re-
dactions in the number of cer-
tificates that have been issued
since the trap reduction program
began in 1993. The FWC esti-
mates that the total number of
lobster traps used in the fishery
has dropped from about 940,000
to about 490,000 today.
The FWC set a goal of ap-
proximately 400,000 traps in the
lobster fishery: however, a
moratorium was placed on fur-
ther trap reductions in 2004 to
give the Commission time to
reevaluate the management of
the fishery.
A lobster industry group re-
cently recommended allowing
the trap reduction moratorium to
end as scheduled onJuly 1.
2009, and begin a "passive" trap
reduction instead.
This action would help contin-
ue to decrease the total number
of traps used in the lobster fish-
ery and benefit both the fishery
and the sensitive South Florida
habitats where lobsters are har-
vested.
A final public hearing on this
proposed rule amendment will
take place in February in Destin.

the funds than some other states do.
SPR generated $13.3 million for Flori-
da in 2008, of which 15 percent ($2 mil-
lion) provided for both fresh and saltwa-
ter boating access, including building and
maintaining boat ramps, courtesy docks
and trailer parking. Of the remaining
$11.3 million, freshwater fisheries con-
servation received $5.3 million (based on
the estimated number of resident fresh-
water anglers versus saltwater anglers),
and saltwater attained $6 million.
Florida freshwater fisheries' SFR fund-
ing is used primarily to support the many
programs that ensure Florida remains the
Fishing Capital of the World. This in-
cludes evaluating key fisheries to deter-
mine the appropriate regulations, fish
stocking, habitat enhancement, aquatic
plant management and infrastructure
needs (e.g., boat ramps, fishing piers, fish
attractors). The funds also support ap-
plied research, hatchery operations, out-
reach activities for youth, and communi-
cations programs to keep the angling
public informed.
The fishing tackle and boating indus-
tries pay these taxes up front and then
pass the cost on to anglers and boaters.
Each recreationist pays a minor share.
However, the accumulated impact is one
of the strongest forces helping ensure
there will be fishing and boating access
in the future, that aquatic habitats are


protected and restored, and that our wa-
ters contain healthy and abundant sport
fishes to sustain quality recreational fish-
ing.
In turn, sport fishing not only provides
millions of hours of healthy, relaxing en-
joyment for anglers and boaters, it also
provides a tremendous economic benefit
to local communities and businesses. The
angling publicand fishing industry to-
gether serve as watchdogs to ensure that
the user who pays into the system direct-
ly benefits. / ,
"Put, Grow and Take" is an expression
fisheries biologists use to describe stock-
ing a small fish into a healthy environ-
ment, letting it grow and allowing it to be
caught by an angler as a much-bigger
fish. Sport Fish Restoration works the
same way - with a little money going into
the system, being returned and expanded
to give the angler more than his or her
money's worth.

New rules proposed for harvest of aquarium species


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) on Thursday proposed a series of draft
rule amendments for the marine life (aquarium
species) fishery. These proposed-rules are intended to
enhance the FWC's existing marine life regulations to
help maintain the health of Florida's important coral
reef ecosystem.
Members of the commercial marine life industry
have for years been proactive in coming to the Com-
mission with ideas and recommendations to protect the
fishery and promote the conservation of marine life re-
sources.
After considering recommendations made by its Ma-
rine Life Workgroup, composed of marine life fishery
stakeholders, and receiving comments from the public,
the FWC is proposing a series of draft rule amend-
ments that would add new fish and invertebrate
species to marine life regulations, establish or change
size and bag limits and gear specifications for several
marine life species, and make other administrative and
technical marine life rule changes.
Florida's marine life fishery involves the taking of
live fish, invertebrates and plants mostly for aquari-
ums. The fishery occurs primarily within coral reefs,
which are one of the most biologically diverse and
valuable ecosystems on earth.
The FWC considers it essential to conserve Florida's'
coral reefs by reducing the adverse impacts fishing and
other human interactions can cause to these ecosys-
tems, and is continuing its long collaboration with the


marine life fishing industry to implement management
regulations to preserve this fishery.
The FWC is proposing to add several species to the
marine life rule, which means that commercial har-
vesters of these species would need a marine life en-
dorsement to collect them, and these species also
would be included in the marine life recreational bag
limit. The species proposed to be added include por-
cupine fish, spotted burrfish, black brotula, key brotu-
la, yellow stingray, blackbar soldierfish, red mithrax
crab, emerald crab, red ridged clinging crab, the star
snail lithopoma tectum, all hermit crabs (except land
hermits), and nassarius snails.
The proposed rules would also lower the minimum
size limit for Cuban hogfish from three to two inches
total length, raise the maximum size limit for butter-
flyfish from four to five inches total length, establish
maximum size limits of nine inches total length for
tangs and 12 inches total length for parrotfish, lower
the daily commercial bag limit for angelfish (gray,
French, blue and queen) from 75 per person and 150
per vessel to 50 per person and 100 per vessel, change
the daily commercial bag limit for butterflyfish from
75, per vessel to 50 per person or 100 per vessel (if two
endorsement-holders are aboard), and establish a com-
mercial daily vessel limit of 400 for dwarf seahorses.
The rules also propose lowering the commercial dai-
ly bag limit for condylactis anemones from 400 to 200
per vessel, and establishing commercial daily bag lim-
its of 400 per vessel for emerald crab, one gallon per

Other proposed rules recommended by FWC staff
and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary in-
clude specifying that ricordea (a soft coral) and all
corallimorph polyps must be taken as a single polyp
only and establishing a commercial daily bag limit for
all corallimorph polyps of 100 polyps per person or
200 per vessel (if two endorsement-holders are
aboard). They also recommend establishing a commer-
cial daily bag limit for zoanthid polyps of one gallon
of polyps per person or two gallons per vessel (if two
endorsement-holders are aboard), and requiring that:
the only gear allowed for collecting zoanthid and all'
corallimorph polyps should be a flexible blade no
wider than two inches, such as a paint scraper, putty
knife or razor blade.
In addition, the proposed rules would allow the har-
vest of ornamental sponges north of Egmont Key in
the Gulf of Mexico to be taken with a one-inch
amount of substrate beyond the holdfast and a one-
inch thick piece of substrate below the holdfast of the
sponge. Taking ornamental sponges with substrate
would not be allowed in waters south of Egmont Key.
Finally, the proposed rules would allow recreational
harvesters to take no more than five of any one marine
life species daily within the 20 organism aggregate bag
limit and possess no more than a two-day bag limit (up
to 40 marine life organisms), allow live rock harvest
from an aquaculture lease site to count towards the re-
qualification of the marine life transferable dive en-
dorsement, allow quinaldine to be used only by marine
life dive and non-transferable dive endorsement hold-'-
ers, and apply other technical rule changes.
The FWC will hold a final public hearing on the
proposed marine life rule amendments in February in
Destin. The Commission, gave flexibility to staff to
consider input it received at its meeting on Thursday
and incorporate additional rule amendments as appro-
priate prior to the final public hearing.

Big Cypress addition recreational-use plans move forward


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) heard a report
on the progress of opening the Big Cy-
press Addition for public access and hunt-
ing during its meeting in Key West on
Wednesday.
"The National Park Service is moving
forward with the process to complete a
general management plan for the addition,
which is required before a full range of
recreational access can be offered," said
Nick Wiley, assistant executive director of
the FWC. "They have not finalized the
new timeline for completing the planning


process, but they have indicated that de-
lays in the planning process are likely to
push the opening for public access and
hunting back to the fall of 2010."
The Commission adopted a resolution
in June that urged federal officials to open
the 146,000-acre Big Cypress National
Preserve Addition to a full range of public
recreation.
The National Park Service and the U.S.
Department of the Interior are in the final
stages of adopting a general management
plan that lays out what types of recre-
ational use they will allow on the area.


The FWC resolution emphasized that the
U.S. Congress established the preserve
and addition to provide traditional public
recreation in addition to resource protec-
tion.
The FWC took a strong stand in the
resolution, urging the federal agencies to
consult and cooperate with the FWC to
provide recreational uses such as hunting,
fishing, wildlife viewing and vehicular
access and ensure any associated restric-
tions are reasonable and justified. During
the six months since the passage of the
resolution, the National Park Service has


maintained close communication with
FWC staff and offered unprecedented op-
portunities for FWC staff to provide input
into the planning process. There also will
be an opportunity for the public to review
the draft general management plan and
provide comments to the National Park
Service sometime in 2009.
"Mr. Pedro Ramos, the acting superin-
tendent at Big Cypress National Preserve
has assured me that they are making
every effort to move through the next
steps as quickly as possible," Wiley told
the Commission.


FWC commissioners receive

update on the Everglades


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) heard a report from staff on water and wildlife issues
in the Everglades on Wednesday, at its meeting in Key West.
During the August rains from Tropical Storm Fay, 20 inch-
es of water fell throughout the Everglades drainage basin,
causing some dangerous conditions for wildlife in the Ever-
glades.
The Everglades encompass approximately one-half of its
historical area, which magnifies impacts from heavy rainfall
storms, such as occurred with Fay. Because drainage patterns
also have been altered, these conditions can persist for
weeks, creating large areas of relatively deep water. This sit-
uation generates enormous stress on wildlife.
The FWC has developed high- and low-water closing cri-
teria for the Everglades and Francis S. Taylor, Holey Land
and Rotenberger wildlife management areas (WMAs). The
presence of humans during these times increases stress levels
and mortality for wildlife through human interaction.
High-water levels concentrate wildlife in small areas, caus-


ing disease outbreaks, increased parasites and malnutrition
because of a limited food supply. During times of low water,
the risk of muck fires increases and internal combustion en-
gines can be a hazard.
Chuck Collins, FWC's South Region director, presented
the criteria for high- and low-water closure for the Ever-
glades and Taylor WMAs.
"Our staff collects data on wildlife through spotlight sur-
veys throughout the year to establish a baseline behavior for
normal to dry conditions," Collins said. "'This data is crucial
to determine when it is appropriate to reopen the area."
Commissioner Ronald Bergeron leads the Commission on
Everglades issues and in October brought together a team
consisting of the South Florida Water Management District,
the Miccosukee Tribe, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Department of Trans-
portation, the Department of the Interior and the Florida De-
partment of Environmental Protection to help devise a plan
to reduce water levels during emergency high-water events.


Social Security has good tidings

to share this holiday season


By Donna Maitland
Social Security District Manager,
Gainesville, Fl
As the holidays approach, Social Se-
curity has good tidings to share with
Social Security and Supplemental Secu-
rity Income (SSI) beneficiaries: All So-
cial Security and SSI beneficiaries will
receive a 5.8 percent increase in benefit
p,Ymg bginning with the January

olne 5. percent Cost-of-Living Ad-
justment (COLA) will begin with bene-
fits that over 50 million Social Security
beneficiaries receive in January 2009.
Increased payments to more than 7 mil-
lion SSI beneficiaries will begin on
Dec. 31.
Social Security and Supplemental Se-
curity Income benefits increase auto-
matically each year based on the rise in


the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Con-
sumer Price Index for Urban Wage
Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W),
from the third quarter of the prior year
to the corresponding period of the cur-
rent year.
This 5.8 percent increase is the
largest since 1982.
Along with the annual COLA come
other changes, including an increase in
. ,theamount of-wages subject to Social -
Security tax. In 2008, the maximum
taxable amount was $102,000. Begin-
ning in 2009, the maximum taxable
amount will be $106,800. This change
will affect about 11 million of the 164
million workers who pay Social Securi-
ty tax. The tax rate remains the same:
6.2 for employers and employees, and
12.4 for the self employed.
In 2009 it will take $1,090 in taxable


earnings to earn a credit of coverage for
Social Security, up from $1,050 in
2008. All workers can earn up to four
credits in a year.
The average retired worker will re-
ceive $1,153 per month in Social Secu-
rity benefits in 2009, up from $1,090 in
2008.
People who have Medicare coverage
will want to visit Medicare's website at
http://www.medicare.gov for changes.-.
coming in 2009.

word of his victory and celebrated with a small group of
fans, family, friends and crew members as the trophy was
placed on top of his car in the technical inspection area at
Five Flags Speedway.
The Alabama driver, who is the son of famed car
builder Frankie Grill, has secured a place in the history
books by becoming only the eighth multi-time winner in
the history of the Derby. Grill joins Rich Bickle, Gary St.
Amant, Freddie Fryar, Wayne Niedecken, Dickie Davis,
Bobby Gill and Gary Balough on that list. Only Bickle,
who won the event in 1990, 1991, 1998 and 1999, has
won the race in back-to-back years like Grill now has.
"'That is unbelievable." said Grill. "I think that only
Rich Bickle has done that before, so it is pretty neat. It is
very special for sure."
Grill had plenty of competition for the race victory.

Size limits changed

for Gulf amberjack

and triggerfish
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
approved new rules Dec. 4 to increase the minimum size
limits for greater amberjack and gray triggerfish in Gulf of
Mexico state waters. This action is consistent with new reg-
ulations in Gulf federal waters, which extend beyond nine
nautical miles offshore of Florida.
Federal fisheries managers recently implemented a man-
agement plan for greater amberjack and gray triggerfish in
Gulf federal waters. Greater amberjack in the Gulf are con-
sidered to be overfished (low stock abundance) and under-
going overfishing (excessive harvesting pressure). Gray trig-
gerfish in the Gulf are considered to be undergoing overfish-
ing.
The new rules increase the recreational minimum size lim-
it for greater amberjack from 28 to 30 inches fork length and
increase the commercial and recreational minimum size lim-
it for gray triggerfish from 12 to 14 inches fork length in
Gulf state waters.
These rules take effect on Jan. 1.

FWC proposes Gulf

red snapper sport

season change

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) proposed a draft rule Dec.
4 to change the recreational harvest season for
red snapper in Gulf of Mexico state waters. A
final public hearing on this proposed action
will take place during the FWC's February
meeting in Destin.
The FWC proposal would change the recre-
ational red snapper harvest season in Gulf state
waters from April 15 through Oct. 31 to June 1
through Sept. 30. This proposed action would
be consistent with the red snapper closed sea-
son in Gulf federal waters.
Red snapper are considered to be overfished
and undergoing overfishing in the Gulf. Short-
ening the fishing season in state waters will re-
duce the harvest of Gulf red snapper and help
rebuild the fishery's population.
The FWC also believes that adopting thq
same closed red snapper recreational season
that exists in Gulf federal waters could reduce
the need for further restrictions in the future.

bers, is the largest beef cattle registry Asso-
ciation in t.e world. Its computerized
records include detailed information on
nearly 16 million registered Angus.
The Association records ancestral infor-
mation and keeps production records on in-
dividual animals for its members. These per-
manent records help members select and
mate the best animals in their herds to pro-
duce high quality, efficient breeding cattle
which are then recorded with the American
Angus Association. Most of these registered
Angus are used by the U.S. farmers and
ranchers who raise high quality beef for U.S.
consumption.

BOYD RECEIVES AGRICULTURE

AWARD FROM UF/IFAS

Event marked the release of new bahiagrass by UF's IFAS,

significant development for Florida's agriculture community


On Friday, Dec. 5, Congressman
Allen Boyd (D-North Florida) received
an award from the University of Flori-
da's Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences for the contributions that he
and his family have made to the propa-
gation of'Pensacola Bahiagrass. Intro-
duced to Florida in the 1940s by Con-
gressman Boyd's uncle, bahiagrass is a
warm season grass that is resistant to
drought, disease, and insect attacks and
requires little irrigation.
Congressman Boyd's family was inte-
gral in the spread of the old variety of
Bahiagrass, which was beneficial to


countless cattlemen and dairymen and
to various state agencies because of its
resistance to drought.
At the event, UF's IFAS also marked
the release of a new variety of bahia-
grass, known as "Riata." Riata Bahia-
grass is an exciting and'significant de-
velopment for Florida's agriculture
community because of its tolerance to
cold temperatures and the shortened day
length of Florida winters. This new va-
. riety is also expected to yield grazable
forage over a longer season thin other
bahiagrass.
"The development of bahiagrass in


FWC approves Gulf gag,

and red group r.rule change,


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission on Thursday ap-
proved rule amendments for
gag grouper in Gulf of, Mexi-
co state waters that are con-
sistent with interim regula-
tions in Gulf federal waters.
In addition, the FWC ap-
proved a rule amendment to
allow Florida recreational an-
glers to harvest more red
grouper in Gulf state waters.
A recent stock assessment
indicated that Gulf gag
grouper are undergoing over-
fishing (excessive harvesting.
pressure), and harvest levels
must be reduced. Interim fed-
eral regulations to address this
situation will be implemented
in Gulf waters beyond nine
nautical miles offshore of


Florida in January. Today's
FWC action will make Flori-
da gag grouper rules in state
waters consistent with the in-
terim federal regulations.
The new rules establish a
two-fish-per-person recre-,.
ational daily bag limit for gag
grouper within the five-
grouper aggregate limit in
Gulf state waters, and prohibit
the recreational harvest of gag
grouper from Gulf state wa-
ters from Feb. 1 through
March 31.
Another new FWC rule in-
creases the recreational daily
bag limit for red grouper in
Gulf state waters from one
fish per person to two. The
FWC is taking this action
now because a recent stock
assessment concluded that the


Gulf red grouper st(
covered enough to a


the 1940s was a lifesaver for Florida
ranchers who had been struggling to
maintain feed grass for cattle grazing in
the Florida climate," said Congressman
Boyd. "Riata Bahiagrass is the next step
in agricultural research and the next .
generation in bahiagrass and holds even
more promise for Florida's agriculture
community. UF's IFAS has really been
at the forefront of agricultural research
and development in our state, and I am
proud of their achievements in this im-
portant area."

*lue crab closed seasons


proposed to aid cleanup


la Fish and Wildlife
n Commission (FWC)
raft rule Thursday


that would establish six regional
closed seasons to the harvest of
blue crabs v\ith traps. These clo-
sures would extend for a period of
up to 10 days each to help efforts
to identify and retrieve lost and
abandoned blue crab traps from
Florida waters.
Lost and abandoned blue crab
traps have been cited as a problem
in the blue crab fishery because
they sometimes interfere with oth-
er fishing activities and can con-
tinue to trap crabs and fish when
they are not maintained. They are
also unsightly in the marine envi-
ronment, can damage sensitive
habitats and pose navigational
hazards to boaters.
It is illegal to tamper with blue
crab traps unless authorized by the
FWC, and lost and abandoned
traps cannot easily be distin-
guished from legal traps, so they
often remain in the water indefi-


nitely. Regional closures of up to
10 days would allow authorized
groups to collect lost and aban-
doned blue crab traps that remain
in the water after fishermen re-
move their working traps during
the closed periods.
After consulting with its Blue
Crab Advisory Board and receiv-
ing input from the public, the
FWC is proposing annual blue
crab harvest closures as follows:

* in all waters of the St. Johns
River system from Jan. 16-25.
* all other coastal waters from
the Georgia/Florida state line
south through Volusia County
from Aug. 20-29,
* all waters of Brevard County
through Palm Beach County from
Aug. 10-19,
* all waters of Broward County
through Pasco County from July
10-19,
* all waters of Hernando County
through Wakulla County from July
20-29, and


* all waters of Franklin County
to the Florida/Alabama state line
from Jan. 5-14.

Except for the St. Johns River
system closure, all of the proposed
blue crab trap harvest closures
would extend from the shoreline
out to three nautical miles and in-
clude all inland waters in the re-
gions. An existing Sept. 20 - Oct.
4 closed season in the Gulf of
Mexico from three to nine miles
offshore would be retained.
The proposed closures would
apply only to standard blue crab
traps. The harvest of blue crabs by
other gear, such as dip nets and
fold-up traps, would still be per-
mitted during the closures. The
closures would also apply to
recreational harvesters who use
standard blue crab traps unless the
traps are attached to private prop-
erty.
A final public hearing on these
rule proposals will take place in
February in Destin.

Exercise tips for seniors starting anew


Babies today have it better than those that came before
them. That's because, according to a 2007 report from the
U.S. Census Bureau, a baby born today has a lot more life to
look forward to than one born 50 years ago. A child born
today can expect to be around for the next 78 years, whereas
one born half a century ago had a projected life span of nine
fewer years.
While some might suggest this longer life expectancy is a
product of people taking better care of themselves, others
might say it's due in large part to advances in medicine.
Whatever the reason, it's obvious more and more seniors are
living longer lives, and many are hoping to add even more
miles to their odometers. One way to do just that is through
exercise. But for seniors who haven't hit the gym in a while,
starting an exercise regimen can be an intimidating, if not
confusing, experience. Seniors looking to make exercise a
regular part of their lives should consider the following tips
along the way.

* Seek medical advice: The first thing you should do, even
before lacing up your first sneaker, is visit a doctor. Each
individual is different, and a doctor will let you know what
you, personally, should and should not be doing as you begin
a new exercise regimen. In addition, a checkup could reveal
problems you might not be aware of.
* Recognize limitations: If you have not lifted a weight or
run a step in 20 years, you're not going to be able to simply
pick up where you left off. Recognizing your physical
limitations is paramount to the success of your new program.
For seniors, the point of exercise is not to become a pinup
guy or girl, but to get healthy or maintain existing health. Set
realistic goals and acknowledge what you can and cannot do.
* Choose an enjoyable program: Choose an exercise
program you know you will enjoy. An enjoyable program
will encourage participation and increase the likelihood that
you'll stick with it. Whether it's a daily walk with friends,-or
a structured workout at the local gym with a trainer, the
program you choose should be one you look forward to, and
not one you see as a necessary evil.
* Take it easy: Whenever a new program is started, be it by a
teenager, professional athlete or senior citizen, the
temptation to overdo it is omnipresent. However, flying out
of the gates is a great way to get hurt, particularly if you do
not yet know your physical limitations. Take it slow as' you
begin a workout, and make a daily journal of what you do at
the beginning. That way, should you encounter any aches or
pains, you can always look at the journal or share it with
your physician or trainer to determine what might be the root
of the problem. As you grow accustomed to physical
activity, you can then make adjustments to your routine
accordingly.
* Do your homework on facilities: You may, especially if
you are retired, prefer to workout during the mid-morning
hours when kids are in school and working professionals are
at-the office. That can make choosing a gym easier for you
than it is for students or professionals.
However, when looking for the right facility, do your
homework and find a gym that has all that you want. Some
gyms, for example, heavily emphasize weight training, and
don't offer other amenities such as racquetball courts or a
swimming pool. Find a gym that best fits your needs. Many

Choosing a facility that offers all of the amenities is one of the most important steps a
senior can take when beginning a new exercise regimen.
gyms offer free passes for up to a week so prospective
customers can get.a better grasp of what the gym has to offer.,
Take advantage of this common practice when choosing a
facility.
* Make stretching a regular part of your regimen: Young or
old, stretching is an integral part of any successful workout
routine. For seniors, however, stretching becomes especially
important, as you are more susceptible to injury than you
were in your more youthful days. Stretching helps prevent
muscle pulls, and other
injuries, and should be done
both before and after a d
workout. Hea.lin d
