 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.

The Pleasant Hill Community Educa-
tors (HCE) organization met on Dec. 8,
at the festively decorated home of Bill
and Claudia Smedley for the annual
Christmas luncheon and installation of
officers for the coming year.
Donna Wade, our president, welcomed
everyone and shared some information
with us. The group made a holiday bas-
ket to be given to a needy family.
Betty Hicks conducted the installation
of officers, giving each person a unique
flower clipping to symbolize growth in
our new duties, and service to our com-
munity. Those installed were Claudia
Smedley, secretary; Flora Chabin, pub-
licity; Donna Wade, president; Maggie
Stills, hospitality; Barbara Parks, vice


president; Bill Smedley, treasurer.
A festive potluck lunch followed with
Christmas goodies for dessert. Best of all
was the fun we had playing our Chinese
gift exchange.
We had a very good group, which in-
cluded most of our members, a few
spouses, and a couple of visitors. Many
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
wishes were shared as we all departed.
The next club meeting will be Jan. 12,
2009 at ten o'clock (10 a.m.) at the
McAlpin Community Center. We wel-
come all guests and encourage you to
join us the second Monday of each
month to share in our community pro-
jects.

Medications for Bell's Palsy Symptoms
Bell's palsy is a condition that may result when the nerve that is
responsible for controlling the facial muscles is swollen or
compressed in some manner. The condition may occur as a result of a
viral infection, which may be due to several viruses including herpes
simplex virus, herpes zoster, Epstein-Barr virus, or cytomegalovirus.
Pregnant women, persons infected with a respiratory infection, and
persons with diabetes are at increased risk. Sudden paralysis on one
side of the face, pain near the ear on the affected side of tlhe face, and
headaches are symptoms of Bell's palsy. Other symptoms include
difficulty with facial expressions, loss of taste, and change in tear and
saliva production. Symptoms typically begin to improve within a few
weeks, and complete recovery is likely to occur within 3 to 6 months,
however some persons may not experience a full recovery.
Although many persons may recover fully without treatment,
medications are available for alleviation of associated signs and
symptoms. Corticosteroids, such as prednisone, work to reduce
inflammation and swelling of the facial nerve. Antivirals, such as
acyclovir and valacyclovir, may be useful when the condition is
caused by a virus. These medications may be used either alone or in
combination. 492400-F

OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat
*

-Coming

together-


or at least

thinking


about it
Big change doesn't always come
after a long buildup. Sometimes it's
the result of a sudden seismic shift.
Circumstances change; overnight the,
landscape looks different. And an
idea that might once have sounded
odd, a little jarring even, merits a
second look.
We're talking about consolidation.
The current economic slowdown de-
mands, in our opinion, a good long
look at what we'd save by eliminat-
ing duplication of effort in the opera-
tion of local government.
We're hot saying the Live Oak
City Council and the Suwannee
County Comipission should swallow
each other up. Not just yet, at least.
Consolidation can occur on many
different levels. All we're asking -
for now - is that local elected offi-
cials look hard at ways to eliminate
duplication of effort, both between,
and among, city and county agen-
cies.
Consolidation, however broadly or
narrowly defined, certainly isn't
something a community should rush.
into just because of a downturn in the
markets. All we're looking for are
ways to make government more effi-
cient and less cumbersome. A reason-
able goal in any economic climate.
What we'd like is to open a dia-
logue. The first step, as always, is to
talk about it. Write us with your
thoughts, folks, and write your local
elected officials as well.
Meanwhile, we'd like those elected


officials to consider the question as
well. Who knows. There may be a
quiz on it later.

FROM OUR

READERS
To the Editor:

I am so glad I grew up in Live Oak. The
encouragement and support I received as
a child prepared me well for these past
forty years elsewhere.. Each time I have
returned for a visit I've rbeei'i , rested to
see what has changed and what' still the
same.
In between visits I try to follow events
in Live Oak through the Democrat on-
line. It is hard to express the joy I felt last
week when I viewed thevideo of the Mt.
Sinai Baptist Church. young adult, choir
singing at the Community Thanksgiving
Service. What a beautiful expression of
Christians overcoming old cultural barri-.
ers and continuing to demonstrate and ex-
pand the influence of the Gospel of the
Lord Jesus Christ. There is much to like
and love about Live Oak, but you have

Some different Christmas movies


for your viewing pleasure I.


By Mark Kirby, Lake City Community
College Levy Performing Arts Center
coordinator

In terms of Christmas movies there are
two kinds: sugarplums and turkeys. Un-
fortunately most of the torrent of yuletide
offerings in recent years has fallen into
the latter category. Maybe this is why so
many viewers stick to the same old fa-
miliar (but very good) films year after
year: A Christmas Story, the 1947 Mira-
cle on 34th Street, It's a Wonderful Life,
the 1951 A Christmas Carol, Holiday
Inn, and White Christmas.
Looking for something new? Well,
here are some other Christmas movies,
all of which I think are also very good.
Some you may never have heard of, and
that's the point. All of these movies are
available - broadcast on Turner Classic
Movies, on sale via amazon.com,
ioffer.com, ebay.com, or Critic's Choice
Video - so this year try something dif-
ferent.
The Bishop's Wife (1947). Bishop
Henry Brougham (David Niven) has sac-
rificed principles for principal, kowtow-
ing to the demands of a wealthy, imperi-
ous parishioner (Gladys Cooper) who
wants a cathedral built to honor her late
husband. Cary Grant plays Dudley, an
angel who comes to earth to help the be-
leaguered man of God, and ends up


falling for the titular character (ethereal
Loretta Young, so it's easy to understand
why). This is my favorite Christmas film,
one that expertly blends fantasy, drama,
and comedy, has a lovely score, and just-
right performances not only from the
above-mentioned actors but right down
to the bit players.
The Cheaters (1945). This movie is fi-
nally getting its due after years of being
unjustly forgotten (partly because it was
nigh impossible to find). Joseph Schild-
kraut plays a washed-up actor who is
"adopted" by the snobbish Pidgeon fami-
ly for the holidays and ends up showing
them the true meaning of Christmas. An
incredibly heartwarming tale, with won-
derful performances by all, especially
Schildkraut (his performance of "A.
Christmas Carol" is a highlight of the
film), Eugene Pallette and Billie Burke
(as Father and Mother Pidgeon), and Ona
Munson as another downtrodden thespian
befriended by the Pidgeons.
Remember the Night (1940). Shoplifter
Barbara Stanwyck is taken by attorney
Fred MacMurray to his Indiana home to
spend the holidays with his family. They
fall in love, but she's due back in court
after New Year's. This sounds banal but
it's truly a sweet film. My only criticism
is that it takes 45 minutes for the movie
to get to his family and only a half hour
of the film is taken up with them. But


what a beautiful 30 minutes it is. Another
fine-acting-by-all movie, especially by
Stanwyck, who's quite touching.
It Happened One Christmas (1977).
Yep, and it's actually quite good, and has
an excellent cast: Marlo Thomas in the
Jimmy Stewart role, Wayne Rogers, Or-
son Welles, Cloris Leachman, Doris
Roberts, Christopher Guest, and Barney
Martin. It's extremely faithful to the
original, and has the same messages: no
one is a failure who has family and
friends, and that every person's life has
valip.
. Holiday Affair (1949). Janet Leigh and
Robert Mitchum, both very young and
both very likeable in this intelligently
scripted tale of a widow with a son (the
appealing Gordon Gebert) and two suit-
ors (Wendell Corey is the other) at
Christmas.
You Better Watch Out (1980). Poor
Harry, as a youth he saw Mommy kissing
Santa Claus and it messed him up psy-
chologically. As an adult, the single, re-
pressed Harry works in a toy factory, and
keeps lists of the good and bad children
in his neighborhood. He's a guy waiting
to snap, and in this engrossing movie, he
does. Very tense, and the film has a
knockout performance by Brandon Mag-
gart as the piteous adult Harry.
The Ref (1994). Denis Leary, Judy
Davis, and Kevin Spacey, you aren't ex-


Mark Kirby


pecting something light and fluffy from
this bunch are you? Well, you won't get
it (Leary is a burglar who holds squab-
bling couple Davis and Spacey hostage,
or is it the other way around?), but you
will get some good laughs, and the bile
does dilute quite a bit as the film un-
folds.
Space prohibits me from going into
greater detail on them, but other films
worth a look include Prancer; Three
Godfathers (I prefer the 1936 version,
but the 1948 one will do in a pinch); The
House Without a Christmas Tree; Love,
Actually; The Lemon Drop Kid; Joyeux
Noel and Bad Santa.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a
good night!

tes against auto bailout bill


Congressman Allen Boyd. (D-North
Florida) last night voted against legisla-
tion to bailout the U.S. auto industry, cit-
ing his concern that this bailout will not
be beneficial to the taxpayers in the long
run. The Auto Industry Financing and Re-
structuring Act (HR 7321) passed in the.
House of Representatives by a vote of 237
to 170 and now awaits consideration by
the Senate.
"My top priorities are to grow our
economy and protect the taxpayers, and I
am not convinced that bailing out the U.S.
auto industry will do either of those
things,"' said Congressman Boyd. "I be-
lieve' that American capitalism is the
greatest economic system in the world,
and we have to let the markets work. The
U.S. auto industry has been struggling for
quite some time, and it's very clear that
they need to make substantive, structural
changes so that they can compete in a
global economy."
The Auto Industry Financing and Re-
structuring Act would provide up to $15
billion in short-term bridge loans to aid
the U.S. auto industry. Under this legisla-


tion, the President would designate one or
more individuals, known as a "car czar,"
to hold the car companies accountable for
developing and implementing viable long-
term restructuring.plans and to ensure
compliance on financing efforts.
"Our nation is facing serious economic
challenges, and there.is a role for the fed-
eral government to play in stimulating our
economy," Boyd said. "However, commit-
ting taxpayer dollars to a specific industry
without any clear strategy that the money
will be put to good use or repaid is not the
appropriate role for the federal govern-
ment."
"I am hopeful that this economic down-
turn will result in a renewed interest in
Washington to clean up the federal budget
and address our long-term fiscal chal-
lenges," Boyd continued. "The first step is
for our government to stop spending more
than it has and start living within its
means. I look forward to working in the
next Congress to implement fiscal policies
that will put our country back on a path
toward economic prosperity for years to
come."

FHP steps up holiday DUI enforcement


Submitted ,

The holiday season between
Thanksgiving and New Year's is
one of the deadliest and most
dangerous times on America's
roadways, due to an increase in
drunk driving. Since 1981, every
President of the United States
has proclaimed December as
National Drunk and Drugged
Driving Prevention Month. In an,
effort to get impaired drivers off
of the roads, the Florida
Highway Patrol is


joining with hundreds of other
state and local law enforcement
and highway safety officials
across the nation from Dec. 13-
31 to launch an aggressive
national campaign - Drunk
Driving. Over the Limit. Under
Arrest.
According to the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, in December
2007, 992 people were killed in
crashes nationwide that involved
a drunk driver with a blood
alcohol concentration of .08 or


higher, which is above the legal
limit in every state. The Florida
Highway Patrol recommends
designating a sober driver and
not letting friends drive drunk as
just two simple steps to avoid a
tragic crash or an arrest for
impaired driving. Other
important tips
include:
* Plan ahead: Whenever you
plan to consume alcohol,
designate your sober driver
before going out and give that .
person your car keys.


* If you are impaired, call a
taxi, use mass transit or call a
friend or family member to get
you home safely.
* Promptly report drunk
drivers you see on the roadways
to law enforcement. Dial *FHP (
*347) from your cell phone to
contact the Florida Highway
Patrol.
For real time condition reports
as well as maps and other safety
tips, the public is urged to use
our Live Traffic Crash service
on the FHP Web site at


www.flhsmv.gov/fhp.
The Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles
encourages anyone with a valid
Florida driver license or
identification card to go online
to www.flhsmv.gov and enter
their emergency contact
information. This vital
information gives law
enforcement immediate access
to this information in cases of an
emergency, which makes it
easier for them to contact a
family member or friend.

Ware - maker of the iconic Bundt
pan -named Piantek one of 10 na-
tional finalists in the'"Bundts Across
America" contest. Piantek's recipe ti-
tled "S'More Christmas Cream
Cake" was judged superior in the ar-
eas originality, taste, texture, visual
appearance, use of ingredients and an
essay describing how the entry repre-
sents in its own special way, one of
America's popular holidays, Christ-
mas. This season Piantek is proud to
share her dessert recipe with families
all over the country.
"Christmas means surprises, and
this cake has lots of them," says Pi-
antek. "It's easy to make, simple to
decorate, and hidden, baked inside is
a dark chocolate filling. The pan


shape helps create a snow hill for the
kids to decorate. What could be bet-
ter for Christmas than S'More cake!"
As a finalist, Piantek was treated
to a fun-filled expense paid trip to
San Francisco in October, which in-
cluded participating for the Grand
Prize at the baking competition held
at the famous San Francisco Baking
Institute (SFBI). SFBI has trained
hundreds of professional and aspiring
bakers from all over the world and is
recognized within the baking indus-
try as a place where artisan baking is
respected, appreciated and celebrat--
ed. The 10 finalists will also receive
a $500 Nordic Ware gift certificate.
The grand prize winner of the "2008
Bundts Across America" contest was
announced on November 15th, "Na-
tional Bundt Day" and received
$10,000 in cash!
The "Bundts Across America" con-


test, originated in 2006 to celebrate
the company's 60th anniversary. The
contest continued through to 2008
kicking off in April when Nordic
Ware challenged bakers across the
nation to put their best:Bundt for-
ward and submit original recipes for
creative looking and great-tasting
Bundts that represent one of ten pop-
ular American holidays. The Bundt
cake recipes submitted for the con-
test came in a variety of shapes and
sizes. While many participants chose
to use the classic Bundt pan that
many consumers are familiar with,
the depth and variety of the Bundt
line, which includes nearly 40
shapes, was well represented with
recipes using shapes including vari-
ous floral designs, cupcake sizes,
Castle and Heart to name a few.
Even mini-Bundts made their pint-
sized presence known in several of


the recipes.
Piantek's recipe, based on the
Christmas holiday, is baked in
Nordic Ware's Rose Bundt Pan.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: What is prosthodontist?
A. A prosthodontist is a dentist who
specializes in placing restoration, like
bridges or dentures, in the mouth. It is
one of several areas in which dentists
specialize after obtaining additional
education beyond dental school. An
orthodontist, for instance, is a dentist
who uses various appliances to
straighten teeth, and an oral surgeon is
a dentist specially trained to perform
surgery in the mouth. You'd see an oral
surgeon most commonly for the
extraction of impacted wisdom teeth.
A prosthodontist may do something as
relatively simple as installation of a
single crown on a tooth, or as
complicated as a full-mouth restoration
that could involve multiple parts, like a
combination of tooth implants and
bridges. A prosthodontist would also be
the specialist called on to do restorative
work after the removal of a cancerous
portion of the mouth. These specialists
usually have three or more years of
further education after graduating dental
school. Most limit their practice to their
specialty as opposed to also practicing
general dentistry. Talk with your dentist
about the various fields of dental
specialty.

Snament Dec. 5-7.
:Both teams took second
place.
Head coach and founder of
Dog Pound football Bryce
Johnson said he felt his boys
put up a good fight. He was
proud because they played
their first game at 11 a.m.
Sunday and then played for
the championship at 2 p.m.
The team they played was
fresh due to not playing all
day, but the Dog Pound played
as hard as they could for 80
minutes. The team has a good
chance of winning it all next
yeat due to only losing seven
of 20 players who played.
Defensive coach Dewayne
Charlton's defense held on for
the most part of the day as
nine players went both ways
throughout the game.
Coaches Ron Hamilton and

sary of the Rolex 24 at Daytona on Jan. 24-
25 will be at 3:30 p.m., Daytona Interna-
tional Speedway President Robin Braig an-

ty on both Saturday and Sunday to witness
the action on the track but also participate
in the numerous activities that we have
planned off the track."


Among the activities that are planned
around the twice-around-the-clock sports
car challenge include a massive autograph
session in the Sprint FANZONE, a wine
and cheese tasting, chili cook off, the

The ballots in Minnesota

about 22 minutes left to play. They
also beat Wakulla 4-3.
"We played three games in less
than a 24 hour period and it
showed," Johnson said. "It was
cold, windy and overcast."
Johnson said the boys get better
as the season progresses.
"We've got one of our toughest
schedules that we've played in the
last four or five years," Johnson


said.* "Our ball movement is proba-
bly the best since I have been
here."
With only three seniors on the
roster, Johnson has been fielding
sophomores and juniors.
"We're holding our own. We
could possibly win 18-20 games as
long as the injury bug leaves us
alone," said Johnson.
Johnson said that injuries have
not been great this season, just a
taped ankle here and there.


"Our ball movement has im-
proved quite a bit. There's a lot of
things we worked on over the sum-
mer that we have incorporated,"
Johnson said. "We can move the
ball up and down the field with the
best of them."
The boys travel to Columbia
County for a tournament Dec; 29
and Dec. 30. at the Columbia Youth
Soccer Association field. Come out
and support the 'Dogs as they try to
beat the school record.

COMMENTARY


Recount


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels

Continued From.Page 1B

Texas and Oklahoma were
prime examples of bullet
voting.
' This is what makes
sports great,, everyone has
their own misinformed
opinion. This is what puts
the BS in the BCS. Sports,
like everything else in the
world, has its politics.
Florida is a blue state, Ok-
lahoma is a red, and Texas
is an orange state. Some
how none of this went
right but we still have 20
some odd bowl games to
figure it out. We cannot
have a playoff but we can
have every bowl from the
Blue Bonnet to the Sun-
shine. The 2008 national
champion will be decided
in 2009.
In light of a dismal
economy and the national
importance of college


football, wives and girl-
friends might want to con-
sider the following. A 50-
cent gift that is worth hun-
dreds. A Christmas card
with the words, "You can
stay home for the bowl
game of your choice and
not have to go to my moth-
er's," the gift that keeps on
giving. With the money
you saved you might be
able to buy that big screen
TV he always wanted and
you now hold the rights to.
Hold it over his head for-
ever. When he wants to
watch a sporting event and
you want American Idol
reruns, you hold the decid-
ing vote, having bought
the TV.
The holiday/football sea-
son is upon us and some-
where in between is
Christmas. Shop wisely,
remember the Gators had a
better season than the oth-
er team. Keep your opin-
ions to yourself, there are
people from Alabama and
Texas. Don't try to figure
the BCS out or the Heis-
man voting, leave that to
greater powers like the
NCAA, the New York
Touchdown Club and Uni-
vac."Leave Christmas to an
even mightier power and
have a great one!

Brandon Carlson might not actually live
within the walls of Pensacola's Five Flags
Speedway, but the track is certainly a home
to him. In the past, the young hometown dri-
ver has won at the track and lost at the track.
He's had bad times and good times there. He
has grown up at the place arid on Saturday
night he sure came of age there as well, as
he won the Allen Turner Hyundai Snowflake
100 - the biggest race of the Pro Late Model
season at the track.
Carlson survived a race filled with action
and attrition and was right there out front
when the checkered flag finally waved over
the field. The victory was the biggest one so
far of his young career.
"It's hard to even explain what this
means," said Carlson. "It's incredible."
The victory didn't come easy. Even the
winner had a night that was far from perfect.
"I just drove the heck out of the car," said
Carlson. "The car actually didn't handle that
well and I didn't get to pit when 1 wanted to
because our radios were stuck, so I had to
come in -a lap late. Then we had trouble with
the studs because one fell out. We even got
one on there backwards, but I got back out
and somehow missed the wrecks and got
there at the end."
Carlson actually got there just five laps be-
fore the end. That was when he muscled by
2007 Snowplake 100 winner Ryan Crane to
take the lead.
"We were just hard racing," said Carlson.
"We were going for a win, so it was going to
be tight. I had a door on him and did what 1
needed to do."
"There was a little bit of contact, but that
wasn't a big issue," said Crane. "That last
caution just killed us. Our car took a few
laps to getting going and that played into the
finish. It was just disappointing to run sec-
ond."
Crane could have had a lot more of a dis-
appointing night, though. Several con-
tenders in the race found themselves leaving
the event early. Jason Young and Josh Hamn-
er were battling for the lead on lap 23 when
two lapped cars wrecked in front of them

and took them out of the race. Augie Grill
showed muscle, but was eliminated in a
wreck. Pro Late Model champion Johanna
Long also wrecked. Steven Davis and Lo-
gan Boyett appeared capable of winning, but
they got into each other late in the race.
Although the Snowflake 100 attracted en-
tries from all over the Eastern portion of the
United States, Carlson won the race as a
Five Flags regular. The victory also made up
for a miscue that he had at the track earlier
this season.
"I messed up on double-points night and
lost the Pro Late Model championship here
this year," said Carlson. "But this makes up
for that."
Carlson's victory was a popular one with
the fans, the biggest one of whom might
have been his father - Super Late Model reg-
ular Scott Carlson.

"I'm the proudest father in Pensacola right
now," said Scott Carlson. "He's grown up
around this racetrack and in racing. He has
really come around and tonight showed it.
We got hung up in the pits a little bit and
started at the tail end with 50 laps to go. He
drove his way right up to the front and it was
a really good display of his skill as a driver,"
Finishing behind Carlson and Crane were
Casey Roderick, Paul Kelley and Keaton
Hanks.

So what is the excuse today not to take


your health and fitness seriously?


By Larry Wall

As a fitness trainer 1 have
heard just about every excuse
there is about why people don't
take their health seriously. Let's
see if I can hit on a few of them
and see if they around familiar:
* It costs too much
* I don't have the time
* I get enough exercise at
work
* I work too much
* I'm too tired'
* I walk around my block
three days a week or when I can
* I get eAough exercise chas-


ing my kids around
* I don't think I need to exer-
cise

These are some of the most
common excuses that I hear nd I
will bet you have used one or
more of these at one time or an-
other. Well, I hate to break it to
you, but that is all these are, ex-
cuses and nothing more. There is
nothing more important than
your health! Without it what do
you have?
When I talk to people and they
find out what I do as a profes-
sion, the first response is, "I


need to start working out." They
then proceed to ask me questions
about how to workout, how to
eat, and 6ther questions about
health and fitness. Most of the
time it's just filler conversation
or to make them feel better
about themselves, but are' they
really serious? No, not really.
What they don't know is what I
hear from most people that have
started a structured training pro-
gram, the comments that I hear
the most are, " I should have
started this a long time ago,
wow, I can't believe how much
more energy I have!" They have


Hippos, wolves and panthers


a feeling of self accomplishment,
they have more confidence in
themselves, and the stress level
in their lives just seems to go
down!
There are so many benefits to
a proper exercise routine, so my
question to all who reads this is,
"what are you waiting for?" To-
day could be the start of a better
quality and quantity of life. Stop
wasting time; you only have one
body! Don't waste it!
See you at the gym,

-Famous Florida Panther Don Juan joins Florida State Park System-


HOMOSASSA -Don Juan the Florida Pan-
ther recently joined the ranks of Lu the Hip-
popotamus as the newest member of the state
park family.,The Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection's (DEP) Florida Park
Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWCC) partnered
to relocate Florida Panther #79, known as
Don Juan, to Homosassa Springs Wildlife
State Park. Don Juan debuted this Monday af-
ter being transferred from Busch Gardens
Amusement Park in Tampa.
"We are very excited to have Don Juan at
Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park," said
Florida Park Service Director Mike Bullock.
"Homosassa's wildlife facilities make a great
home for this endangered Florida Panther to
be cared for, and his relocation to the park
will play an important role in educating the
park's visitors on the necessity of wildlife
conservation and protection."
A permanent resident at Homosassa Springs
Wildlife State Park, Don Juan is the first
Florida Panther to call a Florida state park
home. The 11-year-old male weighs approxi-
mately 130 pounds and has fathered approxi-
mately 30 offspring in the wild at Big Cy-
press Swamp near Naples. Busch Gardens
was home to the panther for two years prior
to his arrival at the state park.
Don Juan will share the habitat currently
used by the park's nine year-old female West-
ern Cougar, Maygar. The animals will be ro-
tated and will not occupy the habitat at the,
same time. Visitors can approach the habitat
from a glass viewing area. The habitat is a
fenced-in, open area with trees for shade, '
large rocks and various plants for Don Juan
and Maygar's comfort.
In addition, three Red Wolf pups also ar-
rived at the wildlife park on November 25
and will be available for public viewing next
month. The pups are part of the U.S. Fish and.


Wildlife Service's captive breeding program
which began in 1970 when the animals be-
came endangered. By 1980, Red Wolves dis-
appeared from the wild; however, with the
reintroduction program in place, there are
now believed to be 100 to 130 Red Wolves in
the wild.
Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park
works in partnership with agencies such as
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission and the U. S. Fish and Wildlife
Service, who are responsible for the protec-
tion of native wildlife. This partnership en-
ables park staff to educate visitors about a va-
riety of endangered species, including two
whooping cranes and six West Indian Mana-
tees that reside at the park.
"If you're looking for a day trip or a week-
end getaway the entire family will enjoy, Ho-
mosassa Springs Wildlife State Park is a great
value," said Homosassa Springs Park Manag-
er Art Yerian. "A visit to the park offers an
opportunity to discover the real Florida and
its native wildlife for a price far less than oth-
er theme parks."
Located 20 miles north of Florida's newest
state park Weeki Wachee Springs, Homosassa
Springs is one of the region's most popular at-
tractions.
The park is home to Lu the hippopotamus,
Florida's only resident hippopotamus.
The park also offers an underwater manatee
observatory, providing a unique view of Flori-
da's famed sea cows.
A 1,600-foot Wildlife Walk showcases the
natural habitats of bobcats, cougars, otters,
bears and hundreds of birds.
The state park also offers boat tours, hiking
trails, picnicking and an interactive Children's
Education Center and Museum.
In September 2008, The 8,000- square foot
Felburn Wildlife Care Center was dedicated at
Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. The


Felbum Wildlife Care Center is the main
wildlife building where animal diets are pre-
pared. It also houses a veterinarian clinic,
stores food' for the animals, and houses all
quarantined animals. The wildlife center, al-
though not generally open to the public, does
provide special tours and allows children in
the semi-annual wildlife camp to prepare
meals for the animals. The center also pro-
vides housing for up to four students at a time
to conduct,field research on animal behavior.
Construction of the Wildlife Care Center
was made possible through a grant the park's
volunteer-run Citizen Support Organization
received from the Felburn Foundation, a na-
tional foundation for environmental steward-
ship established by the late philanthropist Phil
Felbum of Levy County.
The first two-time Gold Medal winner hon-
oring the nation's best state park service,
Florida's state park system is one of the
largest in the country with 160 parks which
are open 365 days a year. Florida's state
parks, which span more than 700,000 acres"
and include 100 miles of sandy white beach,
provide an affordable outing for people of all
ages.
From swimming and diving in Florida's
rivers and 'springs to birding and fishing or
hiking and riding on natural scenic trails,
Florida's state parks offer year-around out-
door activities for all ages. Battle reenact-
ments and Native American festivals celebrate
Florida's unique history, while art shows,' mu-
sunis and lightliouses offer a x indow into
Florida's cultural heritage. Florida's state
parks are also home to the 2008 Best Beach
in the nation. Caladesi Island State Park; lo-
cated off the coast of Southwest Florida in
Pinellas County, was honored with this covet-
ed award.

State Board of Education

~ Praises Boulware as a strong mentor
and role model for children,
public education ~

Governor Charlie Crist today\ appointed Peter Boulw are. 33.
of Tallahassee. to the State Board of Education.
"Peter will be a wonderful addition to the State Board of Ed-
ucation." said Go\ernoi Crist. "As a former professional ath-
lete and now as a businessman and father, he has proven him-
self to be a strong role model who values education and under-
stands how important it is in bettering the lives of Floridians."
Boulw are i. married with three children and is %ice presi-
dent of the Legacy Toyota dealership in Tallahassee. A former
All-American for the Florida State Uunversity Seminoles.
Boulw are graduated in 1997 and played for nine.years in the

being named the Best Trails State in the nation
by American Trails. The event, which took
place along the Spring to Spring Trail in De-
Land, coincided with the St. Johns River to the,
Sea Loop Invitational Tour.
American Trails presents the National Trails
Awards[every two years to recognize the con-
tributions of volunteers, professionals, agencies
and other leaders who are working to create a
national system of trails for all Americans.
New this year, the Best Trails State award rec-
ognizes Florida for its vision, initiatives and
management of its statewide trails system.
"Receiving the award from American Trails
is, an incredible honor and recognizes the im-
portance of connecting communities with
green spaces to our environment and our econ-
omy," said DEP Deputy Secretary for Land
and Recreation Bob Ballard. "Our state is
known throughout the world for its pristine en-
vironment, and the state's trails are a perfect
showcase of those natural resources and recre-
ational opportunities."
DEP's Office of Greenways & Trails (OGT)
manages more than 80,000 acres of greenways
and eight state trails as well as the Marjorie
Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway, Florida's
longest green corridor stretching 110 miles
from the St. Johns River near Palatka to the
Gulf of Mexico. Of the eight state trails, six '
are rail-trails, which are railroad corridors con-
verted to recreational trails for hiking, biking
and skating activities.
"We are excited to be honored by American
Trails, we have a real commitment to the
Spring to Spring Trail which is the 52 mile
spine of our trail system," said Volusia County
Councilwoman, Patricia Northey. 'This trail is
probably one of the pieces that were instru-
mental in identifying Florida as having one of
the best trails state."
Beyond providing recreational and health
opportunities, greenways and trails provide nu-
merous economic benefits to a community. Ac-
cording to the National Association of Home-
builders, trails are the most desirable commu-
nity amenity for prospective homebuyers when


choosing a place to live. In addition, studies
cited by the National Recreation and Parks As-
sociation have shown that residing within a'
closer proximity to greenways and conserva-
tion corridors increases property values. Many
communities now look for trails and conserva-
tion greenways because of the growing desire
for access to natural resources.and a connected
system of trails.
"Florida has embraced the value of green-
ways and trails with an enthusiasm and level
of quality that is a model for the nation," said
Bob Seams, Chairman, Board of Directors for
American Trails. "Exemplary programs like
the Office of Greenways and Trails' online
trails database and regional trails forums have
set a standard. Local and regional projects,
trails on land and on water, are delivering a
first class infrastructure for residents and an
example for tourists to take back home."
Florida's greenways and trails attract more
than three million visitors each year, and OGT
is committed to providing access to the state's
resources to people of all abilities. Over the
last three years, OGT has constructed two
Boundless Playgrounds� made possible by a
donation from the nature-based Felbum Foun-
dation - one on the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross
Florida Greenway near Ocala and the second
at the Wakulla Station Trailhead of the Talla-
hassee - St. Marks Historic Railroad State
Trail.
In addition to being named Best Trails State,
Florida received American Tiail's awards in
several other categories including:
Linda Crider, Executive Director of Bike
Florida, awarded the Best Trail Advocate for
the State of Florida.
Renee Blaney, President of the Ocala Moun-
tain Bike Association and Cross Florida Green-
way volunteer, named Florida's Best Trail
Worker. (Renee was also recognized with a
Governor's Points of Light Award in April
2008).

Watch for Great Florida Birding



Trail signs in the Panhandle


The 2,000-mile Great Florida
Birding Trail reaches another mile-
stone with the installation of the
Panhandle section road signs this
month. Signs will mark each of the
designated sites along the trail.
The Great Florida Birding Trail is
a conservation program initiated by
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) in re-
sponse to the rapidly expanding
sport of bird watching. More than
485 exceptional sites throughout
Florida have been chosen based on
their quality and compiled into trail
guides representing four geographic
regions.
The sign installations should be
completed by early next year and
will help bird watchers find the des-
ignated sites throughout the Panhan-
dle. Gateway sites at St. Marks Na-
tional Wildlife Refuge, near Talla-
hassee, and Big Lagoon State Park,
in Pensacola, provide extensive trail-


related resources, with
loaner optics available
on site. They also act
as hubs of regional
birding information.
Field guides in both
English and Spanish
also are provided to
enable visitors to iden-
tify which birds they
are viewing. Addition-
al materials for begin-
ning bird watchers
also are available at
each gateway site.
The Florida Panhan-
dle offers remarkable

birding experiences and fewer
crowds, with sought-after species
like the red-cockaded woodpecker,
swallow-tailed and Mississippi kites,
snowy plover, Swainson's warbler,
Sprague's pipit and a remarkable di-
versity of winter visitors (including
hummingbirds) not typically found


in the peninsula. The Panhandle's
coastline is an important migration
corridor for waterfowl, shorebirds,
songbirds and birds of prey.
A sign-dedication event, complete
with birding hikes, will be held at St.
Marks National Wildlife Refuge on
Jan. 17 at 1 p.m.


That's some expensive lobster


A Volusia County corporation
and a Volusia County man have
paid $20,000 in federal fines and
have been prohibited from operat-
ing their charter fishing business
for 30 days. Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) law enforcement officers
found illegal lobsters on board
their vessel "X-Stream" about two
months ago near New Smyrna
Beach.
The federal fines and fisheries
permit sanctions were handed
down recently by the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminis-
tration (NOAA) against vessel
owner Daniel J. Webster, P.A., of
Daytona Beach, and Garret
William Taynai, captain of the "X-
Stream."
, "The owner and operator both vi-
olated the Magnuson-Stevens Fish-
ery Conservation Management Act
by exceeding bag limits of lobster,
wringing and spearing lobster, pos-
sessing egg-bearing lobster and
possessing undersize lobster," said
NOAA Special Agent Richard
Chesler. _
FWC officers Clay McDonough


and Kelly Kazmierczak discovered
the violations while they were in-
specting the charter fishing vessel's
catch on Sept. 14, in the Intra-
coastal Waterway at Marker 24
near New Smyrna Beach.
McDonough and Kazmierczak
boarded the charter boat at about
6:30 p.m., Sept. 14 and found 42
legal spiny lobsters and an assort-
ment of reef fish in a fish cooler.
However, when McDonough inves-
tigated an area beneath the cooler
he discovered a bucket that con-
tained 20 lobster tails that had been
separated from the bodies (wrung).
Eggs had been scraped off three of
the tails; one tail was speared and
one was under the legal size limit
a " all violations. In addition, the
vessel had 20 lobsters over the le-
gal limit.
Webster a~id Taynai told the
FWC officers they caught the lob-'
sters while diving 28 miles east of
Ponce Inlet in the Atlantic Ocean.
Since the lobsters were taken in
federal waters, FWC and NOAA
officials agreed federal jurisdiction
was most appropriate for prosecu-.
tion.


Chesler said the FWC and
NOAA frequently work jointly to
apprehend and prosecute those who
violate federal fisheries laws.
"Lobster rules are in place to
help prevent overfishing the re-
source, and when people ignore the
rules by keeping more than al-
lowed, using illegal methods to ob-
tain them and taking egg-bearing
females, it is a serious threat to the
lobster population," said Maj. Jack
Daugherty, FWC's law enforce-
ment commander for the Northeast
Region. "By working together,
FWC and NOAA can apprehend
and prosecute poachers and help
ensure the lobster population re-
mains healthy, today and in the fu-
ture."
NOAA Fisheries Office of Law
Enforcement has numerous joint
enforcement agreements that feder-
ally deputize fish and wildlife and
environmental law enforcement of-
ficers in 23 coastal states and terri-
tories, including Florida, to enforce
federal'.
fisheries
regula-.
tions.


FWC investigators arrest Keys commercial

fishermen for major lobster violations


Florida Fishand Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) investigators arrest-
ed six men on Dec. 7 for possessing un-
dersized lobster tails and possessing
wrung lobster tails on the water:
Luis Valladares, DOB 8/25/89; Yeniel
Gonzalez-Reina, DOB 8/20/86; Alexey
L. Pena, DOB 10/12/77; Douglass Val-
ladares, DOB 7/8/75; Yuniel Gonzalez-
Mdreno, DOB 1/14/85; and Geovani Val-
ladares-Ramirez, DOB 5/6/68, are facing
misdemeanor charges. However, because
- of the number of lobsters involved, the


charges are considered "major viola-
tions" and carry steeper fines. The men
are.from Miami-Dade and Monroe coun-
ties.
On Dec. 7, an FWC investigator pa-
trolling the commercial fishing trap
yards in Coco Plum, Marathon, observed
the commercial fishing vessel "El Dora-
do" return to the dock with six men on
board. The investigator observed the men
unloading bags suspected to contain lob-
ster tails onto a pickup truck. The men
hid the bags under a tool box in the back


of the truck. Once other officers arrived
on the scene, the investigator stopped the
truck. Upon searching the truck, investi-
gators found two bags containing 249
wrung, undersized lobster tails. The men
were taken into custody.
"These 249 juvenile crawfish will nev-
er have the chance to normally produce
thousands of offspring before they reach
their legal harvest size," said FWC Lt.
Roy Payne. "The total damage to our
state's fishing resources is immeasur-
able."

Prevent the Flu From Flooring You This Season


When the colder weather begins to rear its ugly head, so,
typically, do the common ailments associated with the
dropping temperatures. For many, the notion of winter as
the holiday season has been replaced and instead become
the cold and flu season.

And that's not just perception, it's reality. According to
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),
more than 200,000 people in the United States are
hospitalized from flu complications each year. Of those,
10 percent are children younger than 5.

For many people, the flu shot has helped make winter far
more enjoyable. However, many more people either
cannot get a flu shot because of allergies or simply forgot
to get one. For those who weren't able to get a flu shot
this season, the following prevention-focused tips could
be the key to avoiding the flu.

* Wash your hands with soap and hot water. Perhaps the
best preventative measure you can take on a daily basis is
to regularly wash your hands with soap and hot water,
especially after you cough or sneeze. Germs can easily
spread from someone else's hands to yours, and you
never know if a coworker you've shaken hands with has
the flu virus or germs that could make you susceptible.

* Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs on
your hands can easily spread to your eyes, nose or mouth
when you frequently touch these parts of your body.
Avoid doing so at all times, even, if you have thoroughly
cleanse your hands..

* Routinely clean any shared surfaces. Viral germs can
live on the surfaces of counter tops, doorknobs, computer
keyboards, and telephones for up to an hour. To combat
the spread of these germs, routinely clean surfaces that
are shared with others, and use antibacterial soaps and
cleaners that prevent the spread of germs.

* Avoid those who currently have the flu. The flu is easily
spread from one person to another, and the viral germs
cane be air borne. Whenever you're exposed to a person
with the flu, be sure to wash your hands frequently and


do your best tominimize
your exposure to them.

* Parents, teach your kids.

Routinely and thoroughly washing your hands is one way to reduce the likelihood of
falling victim to the flu this season.

catching the flu are often heightened because it's hard to
know who your children are coming into contact with at
school every day. Because schools have so many
children, it's almost impossible for children to avoid
being exposed to the flu virus at one point or another. To
decrease the likelihood of getting the flu through your
children or their classmates, teach the kids the same flu
prevention tips as well. Tell them to be sure to wash their
hands regularly, and avoid share food or beverages with
their friends as well.

* Eat healthy and get your sleep. A poor diet and a lack of
sleep, whether together or simply on their own, can
weaken the immune system, A weaker immune system ,
makes us more susceptible to the flu, as well as other."'
ailments. Be sure to eat a healthy, balanced diet, and
make sure you make time to get the proper amount of
rest.

To learn more about flu prevention, visit the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention Web site at www.cdc.gov.
