 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.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: I've just moved to a new area, how
can I go about finding a new dentist?
A. One way to start your search would
be to check the membership directory of
the American Dental Association, which
you can examine on line or at many
public libraries. Remember that
depending on your insurance coverage,
you may be limited in your choice, Ask
your new neighbors and co-workers for
recommendations. Check with your local
hospital, particularly if it has an
accredited dental service. Contact the
local dental society.
If you have already established a
relationship with a pharmacist, physician
or some other health provider, ask them
for recommendations. As part of your
search consider the dentist's office
location and hours. Are they convenient
enough that they fit your needs? The
research you do will be well worth it.
Your dentist is a key figure in
maintaining your overall health. You
don't want to just settle for someone. On
your first visit, you can pick up a lot of
information. You should have the
dentist's full attention and the dentist
should make you feel comfortable with
whatever questions you may have.

Christmas




in Wellborn

By Wendell Snowvden
The town of Wellborn,
Florida, USA had its
annual Children's
Christmas Party on Dec.
13, and what a good time- "*,
the children had. Hosted
by the Wellborn
Community Association, I
the Children's Christmas
Party is a major event with
preparation starting in
early November.
The children started
arriving around 5:30 for
the 6:00 p.m. event. They always arrive early because
'they know there is always a big turnout. They were not to
Sbe disappointed. Santa Claus arrived promptly at 6:30.
There being good weather and no snow on the ground, he
arrived in a really big fire truck that had lights flashing
Sand its siren blasting. This spectacle really pleased the
'kids. Santa boisterously pranced around the Community
"Center greeting the children. Roaring out his Ho-Ho-
'Ho's, he circled the room. Following this, Santa lined all
the kids up, and as he took all of their Christmas requests,
'he gave them each and every one a Christmas stocking
Filled with goodies.
As the children entered Santa's headquarters, they were
registered by name and age and given a blue ticket. Older
kids were given red tickets. Following the stocking
distribution, Santa had his helpers begin pulling blue
'tickets, and each winner was given a very nice gift in his
'or her age group. Would you believe there were enough
gifts to make sure that every child was a winner! There
were some comments like, "Oh, no, I'm sure my number
won't be called," ,or I just know Santa will run out of
gifts." But, not so! For the red ticket drawing, Santa had
brought along two very nice 26" 15-speed bicycles.
Believe it or not, the elves had packed up one for a boy
' and one for a girl before Santa left the North Pole. It must

have been Santa's magic but when the winning tickets
were pulled, one was a boy and one was a girl. Only
Santa can work that kind of magic. Yes, the party was a
-success.. There was a lot of carol-singing and everyone
enjoyed cookies and punch with hot coffee for the
parents.
As the holidays are upon us, try to remember those
around us who are in need. The Wellborn Community
Association donated a,
vanload of toys and
stockings to the Live Oak.

Distributed along with the


Fire Department's other donations to kids who would
otherwise be without.: We also prepared food boxes for
the Wellborn needy. You can also help others and
yourself by just saying a daily prayer for those in-bad
health and our men and women who are.fighting for our
country.
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a
Happy New Year!

Viewpoints/Opinions


BIBLE VERSE
And there were shepherds
living out in the fields nearby,
keeping watch over their flocks
at night. An angel of the Lord
appeared to them, and the glory
of the Lord shone around them,
and they were terrified. But the
angel said to them, "Do not be
afraid. I bring you good news of
great joy that will be for all the
people. Today in the town of
David a Savior has been born to
you; he is Christ theLord."
- Luke 2:8-11

Christmas


wish list

Knowing that most of these things
won't happen overnight, here's what
we want for Christmas - next year.

Animal control
Stray and vicious animals - dogs,
mostly - roam Live Oak and Suwannee
County at will. It's not unusual to hear
police calls from residents trapped
within their homes by good-sized
beasts snarling just outside the door.
Some of these creatures are strays,
some just poorly supervised pets. Ei-
ther way, it's an embarrassment that
must be remedied. We live in the coun-
try, not on the frontier.

Better cooperation
among local officials
Politics is a rough-and-tumble sport,
and it's hardly unusual for someone to
get hurt. We're not making a plea for a
kinder, gentler way of doing business
here. But let's not let our individual
differences get in the way of the com-
mon good. County commissioners,
take note: Every major debate needn't
end in a 3-2 vote.

Downtown renovation
Main Street Florida is a fine pro-
gram with a proven record of success.
Live Oak business leaders have em-.
braced it. Let's all be sure we follow
through. It's not a quick fix, but could
be just the thing to turn downtown
around. '

A more courageous state legislature
Call it guts, intellectual honesty,
whatever you like. The Florida Legis-
lature has shown a lack of it in recent
years. Amendment 1, which we
warned about in a January editorial,
has proven to be a disappointment,
based on the calls we've gotten from
folks wondering why their property
taxes didn't go down this year.
No one expects state lawmakers to
perform miracles. Do us a favor,
though, and stop making unrealistic
promises then using a popular, charis-
matic governor to sell them to us.
That's a trick voters are finally onto,
we suspect.

That's what we want, folks. How
about you? As always, we welcome
your input.

Merry Christmas from the entire
staff at the Suwannee Democrat.


GUEST COLUMN


Recovering the magic of Christmas


By John W. Whitehead
When I was a child,
Christmas was the best
time of the year. And
what made it so exciting
was that everyone ".
seemed to join in the
fun. There was a Santa
in every store, songs
like "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer"
played on the radio, and people generally.
acknowledged that the day had special
meaning because of the Christ Child--
thus the reason for the Christmas season.
But times have changed. We have
grown more cynical and weary--the hall-
marks of our materialistic culture. In
fact, the season for giving has turned into
the season for getting. Even before the
Thanksgiving turkey is gobbled up,
shopping malls are decorated and play-
ing Christmas music to get people in a
buying mood.
Not only does greed now dominate the
season, but a pervasive political correct-
ness is doing away with the true celebra-
tion of Christmas. This is no more so
than in the public schools, where musical
programs omit all Christmas carols. Oth-
ers replace "Merry Christmas" greetings
with the more saccharine "Happy Holi-
days." Still others eliminate angels and
Santa Claus as being too religious. And
some schools even outlaw the colors red
and green, saying they're Christmas col-
ors.
The Christmas phobia has even invad-
ed higher education. For example, this
Syear,.Florida Gulf Coast University has
banned all holiday decorations on-cam-
pus and cancelled a popular greeting
card design contest, replacing it with an
ugly sweater competition. The reason:
school officials don't want to offend any-
one who might be disturbed by the men-
tion of "Christmas."


In many cities, the Christmas tree is
now referred to in more Orwellian terms
as a "community tree." And Christmas
parties at work are now winter parties
where people whisper "Merry Christ-
.mas," as if they're dealing with pornogra-
phy.
Add to this silliness a new campaign
by the American Humanist Association.
Ripping off lyrics from "Santa Claus is
Coming to Town," the group is running
ads that proclaim, "Why believe in a
god? Just be good for goodness' sake."
But Christmas is not, nor was it ever,
intended just for religious people. Even
the Bible is clear on this point. As the
angels proclaimed at Christ's birth, "Glo-
ry to God in the highest, and on earth
peace, good will toward all men."
Indeed, the birth of the Christ Child
signaled that peace could be restored to a
troubled world. People could overcome
tfieir petty disputes and divisive egos and
work together for a better world for
everyone, especially the poor and down-
trodden. In fact, when Jesus became a
man, he made.clear that God favored the
meek, the poor, the persecuted and the
peacemakers over the rich and warmon-
gers. What a message--one that our.frac-
tured world so desperately needs.
Sadly, the true Christmas story as rep-
resented by the baby Jesus has little to
do with how we have come to celebrate
the holiday. Isn't there something more
important than receiving? Isn't the true
meaning of Christmas about giving and
helping the needy? Isn't that what we
should be teaching our children?
It seems that a religious holiday would
be a good opportunity to celebrate some-
thing wholesome and good. Rather than
thinking about the height of the selling
season, why can't it be a season of reflec-
tion and joy? Why can't it be i time to
step back and meditate on the original


reasons behind the holiday? Why can't it
be a day to share our blessings with those
who are in need?
Fortunately, we live in a country where
families can still celebrate their religious
holidays with freedom. We can still at-
tend religious services, set up manger
scenes and sing traditional Christmas
carols. We can still read the Christmas
story to our children and tell them the
real reason for the season. Should you
care to reclaim for yourself and your
family some semblance of what Christ-
mas really means, here are a few sugges-
tions:
Take time to read the Christmas story
found in Luke 2:1-20. Make "peace on
earth, goodwill to all men" your motto
for the New Year.
These are difficult times for many.
Thus, sacrifice some portion of what you
would spend on family and friends to
help a needy family. What a great oppor-
tunity to teach our children about the
spiritual reality of life. Let that be your
gift in the true spirit of Christmas.
Count your blessings. And when you're
done counting them, say a prayer for the
less fortunate: the hungry, the homeless,
the lonely, the destitute and the sick. Re-
solve to do your part to make a differ-
ence in the world--even if it's just in your
apartment building or neighborhood.
Teach your children to give of them-
selves and their time unselfishly. Volun-
teer at a soup kitchen. Adopt a family for
Christmas. Invite someone who might
otherwise spend the holiday alone to
share in your Christmas festivities.
By diverting the focus, in our homes at
least, from the "give me" attitude to.a
sharing spirit, maybe we can recapture
the awe and gratitude that Christmas car-
,ols say is the greatest gift ever given to
humanity.

OPINION


Does it all go back to Buck Rogers?


By Dwain Walden
Today a fellow sent me
his theory on how UFOs
are powered. I did not re-
quest this information, but ..
I did look at his drawings.
You see I'm still stuck on
the very first and basic issue of whether
UFOs even exist. How they are pow-
ered and why they are described in
shapes more like a Frisbee and less like
a Roman candle aren't subjects high on
my think-tank priority list.
I am, however, open to opinions on
this matter, and I will give it some pass-
ing thought because when I look out
into the night sky, I find it difficult to
conclude that we are all alone in the
universe. It doesn't scare nor offend me
to hear people talk about extraterrestri-
als. But if I happened to walk up on
one climbing out of a giant trash can lid
it might make the hair stand up on the
back-of my neck.
This UFO person uses terms like
"gravitomagnetism" in his theory of
propulsion. I won't attempt to explain
what that is, mostly because I don't
have a clue except that somehow it can
defy gravity and scoot really fast.
Now our space machines look like


large bullets and are fired off in a simi-
lar manner. What we see described as
UFOs are mostly saucer shaped, thus
the term "flying saucer." Now 1 had al-
ways assumed that we had coined that
shape because in the early Buster
Crabbe/Buck Rogers movies they either
looked like a saucer or a bloated cigar.
If extraterrestrials exist and they are
smarter than us, then it would be inter-
esting to know what they think about
our perceptions of their travel method.
And why do we call them "extraterres-
trials?" Does "extra" imply that there
are more of their than we really need?
The movies depict extraterrestrials as
being ugly and mean-spirited creatures.
One movie has them looking like large
grasshoppers. So what if they really
look like the Pillsbury Doughboy and
they zoom around in something that re-
sembles a large bumper car? You're not
going to sell a lot of tickets and pop-
corn to that movie.
This UFO person says that there are
those who discount his theories about
flying saucer propulsion and why they.
may be shaped as they are. I will go on
record as saying that I do not discount
them because I simply am not that well
versed in physics. I took physics in col-


lege and I passed. NASA did not seek
me out. However, I'm not a complete
physics dummy. I understand why ap-
ples don't fall up and why diesel en-
gines don't have spark plugs. And I
have never tried to open the refrigerator
door so fast that I caught the light off.
By the way, why do we never walk
into an unlit room and ask, "Who left
the dark on?".
I am much.less critical of UFO theo-
ries as I am Bigfoot sightings. If I made
a list of cynicisms in that regard, the
very top would be Bigfoot sightings,
followed by UFO sightings, followed
by honest politician sightings. I think
the last two have to be in very close
proximity, otherwise politicians could
not find the black holes to throw money
into.
Oops! Got to be careful. I certainly
don't want anyone.to think that I am at-
tempting to be a political columnist. I
guess the words "black holes" and
"honest" had some gravitational pull in
that direction.

Treatment for Rare Skin Condition
Stevens-Johnson-syndrome (SJS) is a serious but rare condition of
the skin and body mucous membranes. SJS is characterized by an
extensive painful rash following several days of flu-like symptoms.
The rash will then blister and the affected skin will begin to shed.
Typically, SJS occurs as an allergic reaction to a medication or is
caused by an infection. Nonsteroidal inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs),
penicillin's, sulfonamides, and anticonvulsants are some types of
medications that may lead to SJS in susceptible persons. Influenza,
herpes simplex, and herpes zoster cause viral infections that may
trigger SJS. Complications may be life-threatening, including
meningitis and serious infection. Meningitis is an infection of the
fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Infection from bacteria
entering the blood can lead to shock and organ failure.
Hospitalization is required for treatment of this condition. Pain
medications are typically given to alleviate associated discomfort.
Antibiotics may be given to treat infections. Glucocorticoids, such as
prednisone, methylprednisolone, and dexamethasone, may be used to
-reduce inflammation. Severe cases of SJS may require
immunoglobulin intravenous (IGIV), which works to stop the
progression of the condition.

NFCC's Susan Taylor named FACC Professor of the Year


North Florida Community College English instructor
Susan Taylor has been awarded the 2008 Florida Associa-
tion of Community College's Professor of the Year
Award for'Instructional Excellence. Taylor received the
award at the 59th Annual FACC Convention in Orlando
on Nov. 20.
Taylor was one of three state finalists to compete for
the prestigious award and competed against instructors
from Lake-Sumter Community College and Broward
College. Her presentation entitled "Excuse me, but I
seem to have misplaced my modifier!" featured a class-
room teaching scenario on correctly placing modifiers to
ensure that audiences clearly and accurately understand
written and verbal messages. The presentation, made to
the FACC Faculty Commission, was critiqued based on
presence, speaking, auxiliary materials and communica-
tion of concepts.
Her teaching method for the presentation incorporated
humorous examples and active participation that allow
students to demonstrate their ability to identify and cor-
rect misplaced modifiers.
Taylor was nominated by the FACC chapter at NFCC
earlier this year to compete for Professor of the Year and
was selected by members of the FACC Faculty Commis-
sion at its spring conference in May to be among the top
three finalists. Her presentation at the November annual
convention sealed her victory in the competition and ac-
cording to Taylor she received much encouragement and
support from her colleagues at NFCC.
"It is an honor to have been nominated by my col-
'leagues," said Taylor. "I am thankful to the students, fac-
*ulty, staff and administration who took time to offer let-
:ters of support. Additionally, my colleagues provided
constructive criticism that helped me to hone these two
'presentations. Thanks to their expertise and feedback, I
*was able to represent the good work that is being accom-
plished here at NFCC."

NFCC Acting President John Grosskopf and college
employees held a reception in the NFCC Art Gallery on
Dec. 1 to congratulate Taylor for her achievement of be-
ing named FACC Professor of the Year.
"We at NFCC have always known of the excellent
quality and high caliber of our instructors and now the
rest of the state knows," said Grosskopf.
Taylor joined the NFCC faculty as an English instruc-
tor in August 2005. Currently, a doctoral student inr

At NFCC she is also the College Preparatory Program
Coordinator and leads the Quality Enhancement Plan
project. She is also on the board of the Florida Develop-
mental Education Association. She has been a teacher
since 1985, in middle, high school and community col-
lege settings.
Taylor and her husband, Danny, reside in Monticello.
She is also the daughter of Tom and Bettie Hogle of
Monticello.

NFCC instructors


gather for


faculty retreat


Instructors focus on

developing "objective-

based syllabus"
The Institutional Effectiveness Committee at
North Florida Community College hosted an
NFCC Faculty Retreat workshop in November
bringing college instructors together in a fun and
creative environment for the sharing of ideas. The
goal of the three-hour retreat was to create an ob-
jective-based syllabus that meets criteria estab-
lished by the Southern Association of Colleges and
Schools (SACS), the institution which governs ac-
creditation of NFCC and other degree-granting
higher education institutions in the Southern states.
. College faculty, along with NFCC Acting Presi-
lent John Grosskopf and Acting Dean of Academ-
ic Affairs Dr. Sharon Erle, gathered at the "Bacot
,Cabin" on the Withlacoochee River for the work-
shop entitled "What Students Need to Know: De-
:signing the Objective-Based Syllabus."
SA second retreat is scheduled for February
'where NFCC faculty will discuss and gain a better
understanding of matching assessments to learning
outcomes on course outlines and syllabi. A report
,on the November retreat was presented to the
NFCC District Board of Trustees Nov. 18 at
NFCC.

Abraham Lincoln, also known as Ger-
ald Bestrom, visited Suwannee Health
and Rehab recently. Bestrom, a native of


Michigan, has been traveling the country
as a Lincoln impersonator since he quit
his factory job 18 years ago. He resem-


bles Lincoln, although he is 6'1" almost,
while Lincoln was 6'4", almost. Bestrom
said that it would be nearly impossible to


measure up to President Lincoln. Bestrom
presents a patriotic and musical show,
"Hearts and Humor."

Samuel Beasley was cam-
paigning against me and
telling voters that he
would not support me be-
cause my family had been
involved in the lynching
of one of his relatives, ...
Willie James Howard,"
Croft said in a prepared
statement at the meeting.
Howard, a 15-year-old
African American,
drowned in the Suwannee
River on Jan: 2, 1944 af-
ter reportedly sending an
"inappropriate" note to a
white female classmate.
Howard had been bound
hand and foot.
Croft said he researched
the matter and determined
that he was not related to
the three men suspected,
but never charged, in the
incident.
When introducing Croft
to speak, Beasley ad-
dressed him by thesur-
name of one of:those men.
"You're kind of making
my point, Mr. Beasley,"
Croft said. "I'm not that
man."
Croft said the claims
were hurtful to his cam-.
paign and to his personal
life.
'"Why would You say
that about my family?"
Croft asked:
"I told one person,"
Beasley replied.
"You carry a lot of in-
fluence here, Mr. ,
Beasley," Croft replied.
Beasley said by phone
Friday that he had in fact


students performing at an
above-average level.
Finally, schools were
judged on the college-
readiness of their students,
based on an analysis of
Advanced Placement
and/or International Bac-
calaureate test data.
The rankings were pub-
lished in the Dec. 4 edition
of the newsmagazine.


briefly confused Croft's
identity during the cam-
paign. He said the "one
person" to whom he re-
ferred was a man he en-
countered on Election
Day, and that soon after
the election he cleared the
matter up.
Croft disputed that ac-
count.
"I had several people
,come to me who heard
him say it," Croft said by
phone Friday. "More than
three (people)."
Croft also claimed that
Beasley improperly cam-
paigned for Cameron in
violation of federal rules
requiring that the NAACP
and other groups remain.
neutral during elections.
B'easley, who is also
Chairman of the Suwannee
County Democratic Exec-
utive Committee, said it
was in that capacity that
he campaigned for
Cameron, a Democrat.
"I advised voters to vote
a straight Democratic
ticket," Beaslir told
Croft. .
Beasley contended"that
Croft lost because he ran
as a Republican in a.heav-
ily Democratic county.
"That's what cost you
the electioii', Beasle. *"
said.
Cameron received
10,957 v6tes in the elec-
tion to Croft's 6,320.
Croft said he had writ-
ten a letter of complaint to
the national offices of the
NAACP and may pursue
legal action.

"There are definite, con-

family friend reports.
"Much better than a week
ago."
Abercrombie fell off the
roo of his home while try-
ing to climb down an ex-
tension ladder. He and his
eldest son, Hunter, were


simulating being in a tree

Shunting when he attempted
to climb down to retrieve
arrows. The ladder gave
way, sending Abercrombie

Abercrombie underwent

Zoning board member
quits during hearing


Continued From Page 1A

Kris Robinson, Golight-
ly's attorney, did not object
to Arnold's questioning
during the meeting.
Arnold said after the
meeting he is not repre-
senting surrounding
landowners, but himself.
He said he has property
nearby the proposed track.
After Chambliss' depar-
ture, only two board mem-
bers remained -- Tommie
Jefferson and David Lane.
The meeting was canceled
due to the lack of quordm.
Board members A. W.
Gaylord and Linda Young
were absent.
"I suspect there will be a
nomination of a new board
member between now and
the next meeting day," said
the board's attorney, Bailey
Browning.
William and Enola Go-


lightly, Billy Golightly's
parents, have applied for a
special exception to reopen
the track, which was shut
down in May when a cir-
cuit judge overturned the
zoning board's 2006 grant
of a special exception. The
county in that case had
failed to give proper notice
of the hearing to adjoining
landowners.
Thursday marks the sec-
ond time the meeting' was
rescheduled due to the ab-
sence of board members.
The November meeting
was rescheduled because
Jefferson was absent due to
medical reasons.
The meeting is resched-
uled for Jan. 29 at 6:30
p.m. at city hall.
The proposed track and
campground is located
about 12 miles north of
Live Oak in the Fort Union
area.

Bobby Bowden wants Joe By Tom Daniels
Paterno to retire. These
are but a few of the wants.
How about the I-already-gots.
Frankie Rodriguez got $37 million and C.C.
Sabathia got $140 million. A Rod got Madonna,
was he naughty or nice? The N.Y. Giants got some
respect. The Phillies got a World Series and the
fans off their backs for six months. The Rays got
what was probably the biggest early Christmas
present of all. As the bowls unfold and the playoffs

Rusty Marcus leaves Orlando SpeedWorld for Monroe

Motor Speedway and a New Challenge in 2009


It is that time of year again
when Santa is quickly approach-
ing and the old year will go out
and a new year will begin. It is
the time when friends and family
reflect on the year and the good
and bad things that have hap-
pened during that time.
The year 2008 has been a diffi-
cult year not only for families but
also for racetracks. The economy
has not helped at all and racers
and fans found it difficult to go to,
one race a month much less
weekly racing as most did in
2007. Money is tight and for
awhile there, gas was out-of-sight
and no.one could afford to go far
or do much.
As Santa gets closer to D-Day
and the New Year is right around
the corer, the staff and manage-
ment of Orlando SpeedWorld
would like to thank all the fans,
drivers and crews for their sup-
port in 2008.
As things go, changes happen
as Rusty Marcus, the general
manager/promoter of Orlando
SpeedWorld has left Florida and
moved to Monroe, La. where he
will be the new general manager
of Monroe Motor Speedway.
Rusty has been with Orlando
SpeedWorld and the FASCAR
family for four years, but when
this offer came to him, it was just
really hard for him to say no. The:


Charity Truckers 200 was Mar-
cus' last official duty at Orlando
SpeedWorld.on Dec. 5 and 6.
"Working with everyone at
FASCAR and all the fans and dri-
vers at Orlando was a wonderful
experience for me," said Marcus
from his cell phone in Louisiana.
"It was not an easy decision to
leave but Monroe was hard to
turn down. I will miss all my
friends in Florida and all the
crazy times at the racetrack but I
will be back for the Winter Na-
tionals on Feb. 9 for the Legends,
Bandoleros, and Thunder Road-
sters. This has been a very impor-
tant part of my racing career, the
Winter Nationals, and I won't let
them down in 2009."
Monroe Motor Speedway is a
brand new racing facility featur-
ing a 3/8 mile concrete oval and
4,000 grandstand seats. Right
now it is the ohly asphalt/concrete
track in Louisiana and neighbbr-
ing state Mississippi which brings
drivers from all over the South to
Monroe. You will see drivers
from Louisiana, Mississippi, and
Texas in the field.
Monroe has 12 degree banking
in the corners and six degrees on
the straightaways and features
ASA Late Models, IMCA Sport
Mods, INEX Legends, Bombers,
Compacts, Karting and Figure 8
racing.


Monroe grandstands feature a
familysection for those who do
not wish to be around smoking or
drinking and disabled parking and
seating for those who need help.
And for the kids, they have the
all-new Eamhardt Memorial Park
with bounce houses, face paint-
ing, kiddy karaoke, econobox
drags and a whole lot more super-
vised by adults.
S"I would also like to thank,
everyone for their support in 2008
at SpeedWorld," said Marcus. "I
know it was not an easy year and
we saw many of our drivers with-
out jobs and wondering what they
would do next. We saw our car
counts fall almost in half due to
the economy but I alsd believe
that family must come first and
racing a 'distant second when it
comes to living. But for those
who could come and support the
track, I say thank you.I truly en-
joyed every minute of my work-
ing life the last four years at
SpeedWorld and have many
friends that I will definitely stay
in touch with and hope to see
them from time to time. And if
anyone from SpeedWorld ever
makes.it this way, the door is al-
ways open to them at Monroe."
"I will leave my friends with
these words, Merry Christmas and
may 2009 be a much better year
for us all."

State of Florida partners

with Navy to protect

critical natural lands

Acquisition helps protect
military mission
and water quality
TALLAHASSEE - Recently, Governor Charlie Crist
and the Florida Cabinet approved the purchase of more
than 200 acres in the "Clear Creek/Whiting Field .
Florida Forever" project. The first acquisition within
the project, 200 acres, will help protect Coldwater
Creek and Clear Creek, both Outstanding Florida Wa-
ters. An Outstanding Florida Water is a water body
designated with special protection because of its natur-
al attributes and to.protect water quality. In addition,
the acquisition will prevent encroachment along the
Naval Air Station Whiting Field in Santa Rosa County,
continuing the state's partnership with the military to
acquire environmentally sensitive land while protect-
ing national security.
"We enjoy a tremendous partnership with the state
and it is important that we manage the growth around
Whiting Field," said Capt. Enrique "Rick" Sadsad,
Commanding Officer, Naval Air Station Whiting Field.
"We look forward to this partnership and future part-
nerships that help preserve habitat and reduce en-
croachment on military operations."
The Clear Creek/Whiting Field Florida Forever pro-
ject lies 1.5 to 3 miles west of the Blackwater River
State Forest, one of the state's largest natural areas,
and provides habitat for many endangered and threat-
ened plants and animals, including gopher tortoises,
southeastern weasel, white-topped pitcher plant,
spoon-leaved sundew, panhandle lily and the hairy-pe-
duncled beakrush. Located close to the city of Milton
in Santa Rosa County, the majority of the project con-
sists of upland pine forests, sand hills, and mature and
young pine plantations.
"Once complete, the overall project will protect hy-
drological resources of Clear Creek and Coldwater
Creek, as well as provide a conservation land buffer to
Naval Air Station Whiting Field, a vital military train-
ing facility," said DEP's Director of the Division of
State Lands Deborah Poppell. "This purchase is impor-
tant for preserving rural lands in an urbanizing area as
well as protection of wildlife habitat for threatened
and endangered species."
Once all of the land is acquired to complete the pro-
ject, a priority will be to extend the Blackwater River
Heritage State Trail, furthering the expansion of the

growing trails network in this area. Potential recre-
itional uses include canoeing, camping, hiking, bik-
ng, wildlife observation, nature photography, scientif-
c research and environmental education.
To date, the state has invested more than $900 mil-
ion to acquire more than half a million acres around
military bases such as Eglin Air Force Base and Naval
Outlying Landing Field Whitehouse. An additional
530,000 acres have been identified for potential acqui-
sition in the upcoming years. By preventing incompat-
ible encroachment around military bases, through
Florida Forever, the amount of contiguous land for
wildlife protection and recreational opportunities in-
:reases. In return, the military can continue its training
missions to ensure the safety of all Americans.
Additional Florida Forever land acquisitions near
military installations include:

- Eglin Air Force Base (AFB), Okaloosa County:
more than 11,000 acres of the Yellow River
Ravines Florida Forever project were acquired in Oc-
tober 2007. Located to the north of Eglin AFB, the ac-
quisition provides a wildlife corridor connection from
Eglin AFB through Blackwater River State Forest up
through the Conecuh National Forest in Southern Al-
abama.


* Naval Outlying Landing Field Whitehouse (OLF),
Duval County: more than 1,650 acres were acquired
in June 2006. This acquisition is in the Northeast
Florida Timberlands and Watershed Reserve Florida
Forever project. The importance of this acquisition,
located on the east side of Whitehouse OLF, is to not
only prevent development encroachment for the field,
but also protect the gopher tortoise and other natural
wildlife found in the area. This property provides a
connection from the original Cary State Forest bound-
ary to the Jacksonville Baldwin Rail Trail.

Eglin Air Force Base (AFB), Walton County: more
than 16,000 acres were protected by DEP acquiring a
conservation easement in April 2005. The acquisition
is in the Nokuse Plantation Florida Forever project lo-
cated on the east side of Eglin AFB. In 2007 more
than 1,000 gopher tortoises were relocated from St.
Johns County to Nokuse Plantation and nearly
650,000 longleaf pine seedlings were planted.
Currently, of the 106 projects on the Florida Forever
list, 27 of them, or one out of every four, has some re-
lation to the military. Florida was the first state in the
nation to partner with the U.S. Department of Defense
under the federal Readiness and Environmental Pro-
tection Initiative funds for the dual purpose of envi-
ronmental protection and national defense. The Pan-
handle alone is home to five U.S. Air Force and Navy

State Announces Formal Price Gouging Investigati(

Into Major Gasoline Supplier


STALLAHASSEE - Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles Bronson and Attorney
General Bill McCollum today announced their offices have
jointly initiated a formal price gouging investigation into
Morgan Stanley Group, Inc. and its subsidiary, TransMon-
taigne, Inc., a major gasoline supplier.
"Florida will not tolerate price gouging by anyone," said
Commissioner Bronson.
The investigation stems from events following G6vernor
Crist's declaration of a state of emergency prior to Hurri-
cane Ike. The two agencies received thousands of price
gouging complaints on gasoline prices.
"Our investigation will continue to determine exactly ,
what led to the extraordinary increases in the price of gaso-
line," said Attorney General McCollum.
Morgan Stanley owns TransMontaigne, Inc., and pur-
chases gasoline for the company. TransMontaigne, in turn,
supplies wholesale gasoline through distributors to stations


throughout the State oi Florida, including McKenzie Oil


Company, a retail gaso-
line station in Tallahassee.
Jobbers are the contracted
drivers of tanker lines.
A review of McKen-
zie's invoices by state in-
vestigators revealed that
the prices charged were a
result of the wholesale
charges paid to Trans-
Montaigne. Further re-
view determined Morgan
Stanley sets the contract-
ed prices of gasoline to its
wholesale suppliers, in-
cluding TransMontaigne,
Inc.

Exploring the different types of Tea


Tea is a beverage that is presumed to offer all types of health
benefits. Due to its antioxidant properties it is purported to
help prevent cancer, reduce hypertension and boost the
immune system.
While green tea has been touted as the wonder tea of choice
for several years, many experts'say that drinking any type of
tea can provide health benefits. The types of tea, whether
white, green, black, or oolong, vary only in the way they are
processed or grown. All tea comes from the same plant:
Camellia sinensis.
What Determines Type of Tea?
Fermentation, also known as oxidation, or the exposure of tea
leaves to oxygen, is what determines its color and
classification. Green tea is made from tea leaves that are not
fermented. They may only be withered in hot air and quickly
steamed or pan-fried. Black tea is made from leaves that have
been fully oxidized for a strict amount of minutes until they
turn a dark color. Oolong tea falls somewhere in between
with a semi-oxidation process that produces a reddish color
and a flowery taste.
White tea, which has been enjoyed since the Ming Dynasty in
China, is a relatively new addition in North America. As such,
many people aren't very familiar with white tea and how it is
created.
White tea is made from immature tea leaves on tea bushes
where the buds have yet to open. The tea gets its "white"
name from the color of a downy fuzz that covers the
unopened buds. Varieties of white tea are made from- a certain
ratio of tea leaves to buds..Also, white tea undergoes even
less processing than other types of tea. The leaves are often
just steamed instead of any oxidation fermentation process
being used.
White tea presents a sweet, silky, and what many people say
is a "less grassy" taste than green tea.
What Tea is Best?
There are mixed views on the health benefits of different
types of tea, and which actually has an advantage over
another type. There is reason to believe that since white tea is
as close to the natural state of the plant, and because it
contains more polyphenols it would subsequently be better
for you. However, one first has to understand the chemistry
behind tea leaf fermentation
and the substances in the tea
leaves to make a
determination. LT,1, -1 .-~ A


According to About.com, and Jane Higdon, Ph.D. a LPI
Research Associate, fresh tea leaves are rich in polyphenolic
compounds known as catechins. When tea leaves are
intentionally broken or rolled during processing, catechins
become oxidized through the action of polyphenol oxidase
enzymes present in the tea leaves. The oxidation of catechins,
known as fermentation in the tea industry, causes them to
polymerize and to form larger, more complex polyphenols
known as theaflavins and thearubigins. In simple terms, the
more tea is processed, catechins go down as theaflavins and
thearubigins go up.
Because theaflavins and thearubigins are created from
catechins, and all are effective anti-oxidants, many experts
say any tea can provide health benefits.
Research is ongoing into the efficacy of tea for optimal health
and helping many common conditions. For those who tolerate
a moderate amount of caffeine in their daily diet, tea can be an
advantage providing moderate health benefits.
