Pilgrim's:


26 growers

In wake of bankruptcy, layoffs
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
Pilgrim's Pride, which recently an-
nounced the loss of more than 500
jobs at its Suwannee County chicken
processing plant, is set to terminate
the contracts of 26 of 158 poultry
producers who supply the plant.
Ray Atkinson, director of corpo-
rate communications for Pilgrim's,
said by email Tuesday the contracts
would be eliminated, but did not
identify the suppliers who were to
be cut.
Earlier this month Pilgrim's an-
nounced it would cut 505 of the
nearly 1,400 jobs at the plant. The
layoffs will occur between Feb. 17
and March 29.

bution and awards it to the selected agen-
cies.

First Federal, expressed his appreciation to
all of the agency representatives for their


dedication to bettering the quality of life in
our communities, to the First Federal em-

Simple ways to eat




healthier in 2009


By Cathy Rogers


If you are going to a make j.'
New Year's Resolution to be
healthier in 2009, I'd like to
give you three specific sug-
gestions: 1) Take Down Fat,
2) Take 5 Fruits and Vegeta-
bles a Day, and 3) Take Ac-
tion. According to the "Take
Charge of Your Health" pro-
gram by Michelle Lombardo,
it's not necessary to do a
whole lot of different things
in order to prevent and man- Cathy Roger
age many of the serious dis-
,eases. By doing the three
things listed above, you can reduce the
risk for most of the big killers. These are
things you can do everyday. It's the sim-
ple changes and choices that can make a
big difference in your future health.
The first one is "Take Down Fat." This
means that each day as you decide what
to eat, some of those choices ought to be
low-fat. It used to be that trying to eat
low-fat meant bland foods, lots of work
and lots of money. These days it's actual-
ly much easier to find low-fat products
that are really quite tasty. And they don't
cost a fortune. Purchasing low-fat cream
soups for recipes, and low- or reduced-fat
cheeses, yogurt, and sour cream is easier
than ever. Once you have stocked your
kitchen with these items it will be easier
to make low-fat choices. It is important
to remember that a product may be low-
fat but not necessarily low-calorie, so
check the label.
Another way to take down fat is to try
lowering your milk fat content. If you
currently drink whole mile, try 2%. Or if
you drink 2%, lower it to 1%. Usually all
these types of milk are sold for the same
price. Other good choices are frozen yo-
gurt rather than ice cream, pretzels or
baked chips rather than traditional potato
chips and removing the skin from chick-
en. Trimming the visible fat from meat is
also a good way.to lower the fat.
Another consideration in "taking down
fat" is to consume more of the "healthi-
er" fats than the unhealthierr" fats. For
example, mono- and polyunsaturated fats
like olive oil, canola oil, and peanut oil
are better choices than solid fats like


4 shortening and lard. "Tub"
spreads made with the health-
ier fats are better for you than
S butter; but all should be used
in moderation.
The second suggestion is
S "Take 5 Fruits and Vegetables
a Day." That means five serv-
4 ings. Research shows that the
More of these that you eat
each day, the better your
S health. Fruits and veggies are
filled with vitamins, miner-
als, and fiber. These nutrients
rs strengthen your immune sys-
tem, protect the heart and ar-
teries, prevent premature ag-
ing and certain types of cancer, detoxify
pollutants, and help the body in healing
wounds.
Focus on fruits. According to the
USDA's MyPyramid, all fruits are good
for you whether they are frozen, fresh,
canned dr dried. Serving sizes are 1/2
cup for most types, and 1/4 cup for dried
fruits. For fresh fruits, use a baseball to
gauge one serving. 'Oranges and apples
sold by the bag are normally about this
size. The loose ones are usually larger;
which is okay just know that you are
consuming more than one serving when
you eat the entire fruit. Watch out for
fruits canned or frozen in syrup. They
can be high.in calories. Better choices are
those with no sugar added. A good alter-
native to soda is 100% fruit juice. Whole
fruits are healthier than juice since the
whole fruit always has more fiber.
Vary your veggies. The dark green and
orange veggies are super-loaded with
anti-oxidants that help the body to fight
off many types of cancer and help the
body to heal. Try adding spinach or
greens to a pot of soup or replacing chips
with crisp baby carrots or celery sticks as
a side for a sandwich. Microwave a
sweet potato for a delicious side dish.
More matters when it comes to fruits and
veggies. And that includes mushrooms
which are considered as part of the veg-
gie group on the USDA's MyPyramid.
The third healthy resolution is to "Take
Action." Every day schedule at least 30
minutes of physical activity. Exercise,
which is planned physical activity, is the
best way to help stave off heart disease


- the number one killer. Exercise also
helps keep our immune system running
efficiently, and does wonders for our
mental health. To help you take action
plan physical activities that you enjoy.
Find a partner who will encourage you
and be encouraged by you. Exercise is so
much easier when you have a good co-
hort. Mix it up, walking some days, bik-
ing, swimming, dancing, playing basket-
ball, or weight-lifting on others. If it's in-
teresting and fun you are more likely to
keep on doing it. Schedule it into your
day and keep track of it.
Make these three simple resolutions for
your health in 2009. Keep track of
whether or not you made some low-fat
choices, had five fruits and veggies, and
exercised 30 minutes each day. Start each
day with a clean slate and give yourself a
break if you have a bad day at least
it's not 15 years of bad days. If doing all

Bronson announces top ten complaints for 2008


Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Brqnson is announcing the top ten list
of complaints for calendar year 2008. It's no surprise
that the no sales solicitation category continues to rank
number one, however complaints are up substantially
this year. After dropping by nearly 500 complaints in
2007 to 4223, the Do Not Call law generated 5006 writ-
ten complaints in 2008. Bronson also says the depart-
ment was able to provide more than 7.6 million dollars
in refunds in the form of cash, goods and services, 3
million dollars more than last year.
The department's Division of Consumer Services is
the clearinghouse for consumer complaints in Florida,
regulating 11 industries and attempting to mediate
problems with unregulated businesses. Complaints
against industries that fall.in another agency's jurisdic-
tion are forwarded to those agencies. Bronson releases
the top ten list every year to ensure consumers know
where the biggest problem areas lie and can take steps
to protect themselves.
"While I am proud that we have been able to provide
more than seven and a half million dollars in redress to
consumers, the fact is it is better to avoid having prob-
lems in the first place," Bronson said. "It is stressful
and time consuming for the public to take action
against a business, so knowing the pitfalls can help
people make educated decisions in all aspects of their
daily lives."
There were 37,227 total complaints filed with the de-
partment in 2008. Do not call violations usually lead
the way and that trend continues this year. Consumers

Rub hands together vigorously

Continue for 20 seconds! It
takes that long for the soap and
scrubbing action to dislodge and re-
move stubborn germs. Need a

Rinse hands well under running

GAMETIME

Left 4 Dead is the best

zombie game you could buy

for your Xbox 360 or PC


' .'I


Game developer Valve
has done it again. The
team behind the popular
Half-Life series, the Team
Fortress series and the
much-loved Portal have
released another beast of a
game on the world. This
beast is called Left 4 Dead
and it is the best zombie
game you could buy for
your Xbox 360 or your
PC. L4D doesn't hold
back on the gore, so it's
definitely not a game for
the kiddies.
Players take control of
one of four survivors: out-
law Francis, war veteran '
Bill, analyst Louis and
college student Zoey. The
characters have the same
skills and abilities and
they all move at the same
speed to keep things fair.
The only thing different is
each character's personali-
ty and what they say dur-
ing the campaigns. The
Survivors are pitted
against the Infected: scari-
ly fast zombies. Along
wit the "normal" Infect-
ed, there is five "Special"
Infected: the Boomer, the
Smoker, the Hunter, the
Tank and the Witch;
which players get to play
as if they go into Versus
mode online.
As soon as players pick
a character and a cam-
paign, they're thrust into
beautifully dark and
spooky surroundings.
They'll get to explore an
.Infected-filled hospital, a
deserted and diseased
small town, a half-de-
stroyed airport and a fog-
gy farm. That would be
my one gripe with this
game: the lack of cam-
paigns. So far there's only
four campaigns, each hav-
ing five levels within and
ending with the fifth part
being a "survive until res'
cue arrives" finale. It'll
take people about an hour
to play through a whole
campaign, depending on
how fast they move
throughout it. I have faith
in Valve, though, they're
usually good about releas-
ing new downloadable
content.
Let's get back to talking
about the environments.

How important is my duct
system?


A Ductwork is a very important part of your
heating and cooling system. We can install
A a high efficient unit, but if you do not have a
properly sized duct system, you are not going to get the
most out of it. In addition, it's possible that it will not cool
any better than the old system.
I have come across situations where homeowners think
they need a bigger unit and all they need is properly
sized duct. If you have a duct system that's 20 years or
older and you are going to replace your equipment its a
good idea to have the duct system looked at. It may also
need an upgrade.

E SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK


FRIDAYJANUARY 2, 2009


I


The atmosphere is tense
and it keeps you on your
toes. Far-off gunshots
echo through the streets of
the urban areas, and the
sounds of birds and hid-
den things rustling about
in the bushes make you
jump in the rural areas.
You can identify the Spe-
cial Infected by the signa-
ture sounds they make,
giving survivors a bit of
heads-up when death lurks
around the corner.
Controls are tight, yet
simple. The game doesn't
throw menu after menu at
you, and every button is
meant to do something to
help keep you alive. Shov-
ing the zombies away
works really well and you
can follow up with a quick
shot from whatever
weapon you're wielding.
There's also a quick-turn-
around button for when
you're surrounded on all
sides. You can heal team-
mates as well as yourself,
which helps keep every-
one alive. Believe me, you
do not want your team dy-
ing.
The game is run by an
amazing program titled
the AIDirector. It can
spawn enemies and heal-
ing items when it feels
they're necessary, result-
ing in players never play-
ing a level in the same
way. An alley that was
. empty the last playthrough
could be filled with In-
fected the next. Left 4
Dead makes players de-
pend on teamwork, be-
cause straying away from
the group will almost al-
ways result in our quick..,,
and painful death. Tbhe I-
rector doesn't seem to like c
deserters and will spawn a
horde to attack the player
who is ditching the party.
Speaking of AI, when
your buddies get con-
trolled by the'computer, if
you're playing by yourself
or don't have enough
players, they're brilliant.
Almost too good, shooting
unseen enemies before
you get the chance.
So would I recommend
this game? Oh, yes, defi-
nitely. Left 4 Dead is an
absolute blast to play, and
if you don't have Live or
a broadband connection
for your computer, you're
missing out on a lot. I'm
not saying it's boring if
you're playing it offline
by yourself, it's just a lot
more fun if you're playing
with real people. I'm go-
ing to give it anA, but if
Valve releases new cam-
paigns quickly, it could be
bumped up to an A+.
Don't let this one pass you
by, guys!

Teaching economics

A
MINORITY
VIEW


0 2008 Creators Syndicate
BY WALTER WILLIAMS
any professors, mostly on the
liberal side of the political
spectrum, use their class-
rooms to proselytize stu-
dents. I have taught econom-
ics for the past 40 years and challenge anyone to
find even one student, among the thousands who
went through my classes, who can say, "Profes-
sor Williams used his class to proselytize stu-
dents." While acceptable at most universities, it
is nothing less than academic dishonesty to do
so. Like others I have my own values and opin-
ions, such as those expressed in some of my na-
tionally syndicated columns, but they never be-
come a part of classroom discussion.
Learning how to think straight, as opposed to
what values and opinions to hold, is the crucial
part of education. Part of that learning is to be
able to understand the distinction between sub-
jective statements, for which there are no com-
monly accepted standards of proof, and positive
statements for which there are. For example, the
statement "Scientists cannot spit the atom" is a
positive statement because if there's any dis-
agreement, there are facts to which we can ap-
peal to settle the disagreement. Just visit Stan-
ford's linear accelerator and watch them do it. By
contrast, the statement. "Scientists should not spit
the atom" is a subjective statement. There are no
facts to which we can appeal to settle any dis-
agreement. Disagreement can go on forever. A
fairly good proxy for whether a statement is sub-
jective is the presence of words such as should
and ought. This lesson is closed by telling stu-
dents that it is not being suggested that they
purge their vocabulary of subjective terms such
as should and ought because they are excellent
tools to trick others into doing what you want
them to do. However, in the process of tricking
others, one need not trick himself.
A related lesson is dealing with terms such as
better and best and worse. This lesson might be
approached by my asking students which is the
best system for resource allocation: capitalist, so-
cialist or communist? After several fall for my
bait, I tell them that the correct response is to tell
me it's a nonsense question. It is akin to asking
their physics professor: Which is the best state: a
liquid, gaseous, solid or plasma state? However,
if the physics professor were asked: Which is the
cheapest state to nail a nail into a board? He
could answer the question and probably say that
it is the solid state. Going back to the question
about capitalism versus socialism and commu-
nism, asking which system maximizes personal
liberty and societal wealth, the answer would be
capitalism, at least here on Earth.
Another pitfall to straight thinking is some-
times called the cause and effect fallacy. That fal-

Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak your mind! How?

The hotline never closes and is your way to let it out. You
can let everyone know how you feel -- as long as you ex-

It was so nice that the City of Live Oak put two Angel,
figurines at the round-a-bout. We enjoyed them so much.
Then Christmas Day the Angels are gone. Someone stole
the Angels. I was always taught "If it's not yours leave it
alone" It is so sad that you can't put decorations out and
they stay. signed, Missing the Angels
t .;E
Volunteer commissioners & councilmen would really
show a will to serve fellow man for the good, great idea!
A lot of these people have or have had interests in the pri-
vate sector. Think they'd pay that kinda $$ for that little
time & performance? Why should we? The Suwannee
Valley is quaint, scenic, & a good place to live, but on the
flip side the poverty & lack of opprotunity are the result
of this good old boy thang!

Now I ain't kickin' dirt at our councilmen & commis-
sioners, fine fellows for sure. (Maybe we need more
women involved.) In recent time we have had the district
voting fiasco, legal hassles with music park, Mr. Wooley's
situ.,the atv track & the fire station mess. These all add up
to quite a chunk of change to the folks who pay the bills
& vote you into office. These positions pay pretty good
for a part time job. Do some homework, talk to & listen to
your constituents please. Dot the I's & cross the T's right
the first time round. Quit postponing every thing a mo. at
a time! Make fair,decisive, & informed choices in a
prompt manner. This is what your paid for! Might should
set some term limits while your at it!

I just wanted to comment on the Recreational Basket-
ball Program for our youth. There are two available
places to play in Live Oak for the children, the Douglas
Center and The Coliseum. Out of 10 games there are only
3 or 4 at the Coliseum per team. Don't know how many
of you all have been to the Douglas Center but it is defi-
nitely not a place I want my child to be. There are dump-
sters overflowing with garbage, teenagers coming up in


groups and just "hanging out" outside. There ae even
times when we go outside after a game and cansmell that
someone has been smoking pot. Last year all (f the
games were played at the Coliseum. I am just :urious
why it is that we have such a nice facility for otr children
to play in and yet most of their games are having to be
played at the old, rundown Douglas Center??

In response to the lady who said her kids droed out of
school because the Suwannee High School andtheir ad-
ministration is bad. She needs to get a clue herkids didn't
drop out of school because of that they droped3ut be-
cause no kid wants to go to school and their mother let
them drop out. She is the parent beat their butt! and tell
them they will go to school or get out of the hiase don't
blame the school for your bad parenting.

Why Was Bobbie Winding charged for careless driving
when it was the cell phone that caused the accident on
104th Street? The cell phone that caused the a:cident on
104th Street should have been charged by the HP. It
should lose its driver's license for at least 30 d;ys, be re-
quired to pay for all damages, and be required io take a
safe-driving course before being allowed to drivb again.
UM,
I just bought a package of strip steaks at the'grocery
store. The meat came from Mexico! I guess h11 Florida
ranchers are no longer competitive. C'est la vie. Oops, de
que es francs. Eso es la vida!
Ui
Lee Street was a beautiful street. Somebody come in
there and cut all the trees that cross the road. That's
ridiculous. There's no power lines down there,'here was
no need to cut all those trees and make a ugly streett out of
what was once a beautiful street.
UM.
I would like to let everyone know that there.s an angel
in Suwannee County and her name Lisa McKiiley. If it
wasn't for her and the people that donated toysand clothes
my kids would not have had a Christmas. I wait to thank
Ms. McKinley for having the Santa Shop for tle homeless
and we need others just like her here.

I don't understand why chicken house works don't get
paid minimum wage.

RoboStorms coming to Suwannee County


The Suwannee County RoboDogs 4-H club will host
the Suwannee RoboStorms First Lego League (FLL) ro-
botics tournament at the Suwannee County Agricultural
Complex Jan. 17. Thirteen FLL teams from Tallahassee
to Volusia County have registered to compete for an op-
portunity to advance to a regional tournament in Central
Florida.
For the past 3 years the RoboDogs have traveled to
Tampa, Orlando and Merritt Island to compete because
there were no tournaments in the North Florida area.
This year, several new FLL teams started up in Perry,
Tallahassee, Jacksonville, and Marianna. The RoboDogs
saw an opportunity to encourage newly formed teams by
hosting a qualifying tournament in the North Florida
area.
In September, FLL teams (students ages 9-14) from all
around the world received their annual theme-based chal-


lenge. The 2008 mat, game pieces, and research project
are centered based on a Climate Connections theme. Us-
ing Lego Mindstorms robotic equipment, the FLL teams
build and program an autonomous robot to accomplish as
many missions as possible within a 2.5 minute match.
The teams also research, analyze and invent a solution to
a given assignment which is then presented to a panel of
judges.
The Suwannee County RoboStorms tournament will
begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 17. The morning ses-
sion will consist of practice rounds while teams privately
present their research project and solutions to judges.
Different panels of judges will also evaluate each team's
programming, robot design and teamwork skills. In the
afternoon, the teams will square off with their robots and
compete in 3 matches each. The top teams will advance
to a regional tournament.

King Arthur returns to the 23rd Annual .Hoggetowne Medieval Faire


As you enter the gates of Hoggetowne
the sound of trumpets will transport you
to a time where brave knights joust for
the honor of their ladies and King Arthur
and the Knights of the Round Table must
battle the forces of evil. It is here at
Hoggetowne that the spirit of the Middle
Ages is celebrated.
Come be swept away with medieval
magic at the 23rd Annual Hoggetowne
Medieval Faire on January 24-25 & Janu-
ary 30-February 1, 2009. For two. consec-
utive weekends, tuckedaway in the en-
chanted forest of the Alachua County
Fairgrounds in Gainesville, a medieval
marketplace comes to life as troupes of
actors, street performers and musicians
journey back to the days of yore.
The bustling medieval marketplace will
showcase more than 150 talented artisans
from all over the countryside who will
demonstrate their old time skills and sell
their traditional wares. At the marketplace
visitors can marvel at time-honored tradi-
tions of weaving, blacksmithing, leather-
working, woodcarving and jewelry mak-

"To take full advantage of the medieval
magic, visitors should arrive early," said
Linda Piper, Faire Coordinator. "Each
morning as the city gates open all the en-
tertainers are awaiting the arrival of the
Hoggetowne guests."
Throughout the streets of Hoggetowne
the sounds of applauds and laughter will
draw you into one of the eight stages
where the forgotten skills of full flight
falconry, gripping aerial acrobatics and
astonishing magic acts are brought back
to life. Jugglers, musicians and dancers
fill the streets and stages with continuous
live revelry a medley including gypsy
dancing, ancient music, mystifying magic,
knife throwing and fire eating. Performers
mingle with the crowds as the atmosphere
fills with the sweet Medieval sounds of
minstrels, harpists and many "olde world"
instruments.
"Plan to spend the entire day at Hogge-
towne. There is so much to see and do,
you'll be entertained the whole time,"
Piper said. "People wait all year for this
highly anticipated event."
Hoggetowne is fun for


the whole family with fab-
ulous entertainment featur-
ing a variety of the best
performers on the me-
dieval circuit. Twice a day
the trumpet will sound the
start of the royal proces-


sion, visitors and peasants alike are invit-
ed to join the king and queen to the joust
field for the royal event.
Hands-on activities are plentiful in
Hoggetowne. Visitors can shoot arrows,
hurl battle axes, or launch throwing stars
into targets. Thrilling human-push rides,
camel rides, and elephant rides attract
long lines of both eager children and an-
ticipating adults. The astounding "Birds
of Prey" show features trained hawks and
falcons who perform for the pleasure of
the crowds. Guests can visit one of
Hoggetowne's mysterious fortune-tellers
to learn the secrets of the future, or they
may visit artisans and have their hair
braided or faces festively painted.
One of the Faire's most notable attrac-
tions is the joust, where knights in full
plate armour charge each other on horse-
back battling for the honor of their ladies.
After the joust, children are encouraged to
meet the knights and their steeds. Another
exciting attraction in Hoggetowne is the
Living Chess Game, where King Arthur
and his Knights of the Round Table battle
the forces of evil by strategically "fight-
ing to the death" as to hold their place in
the game.
Take a break from shopping and in-
dulge in a hearty feast fit for a king. At

Pilgrim's grower
Chuck Edwards of Live
Oak says the cutbacks
could have been avoided
- had Pilgrim's been will-
ing to sell the Suwannee
plant.
"I would hope that the
people.making these de-
cisions realize that there's
more involved than just
retaining ownership of
this facility," Edwards
said by phone Tuesday.
"The needs of the com-
munity and the growers


and their families should
'be weighed against the
prospect of closing down
part of the plant or po-
tentially all of it."
In recent months, Lau-
rel, Miss.-based Sander-
son Farms was among
those rumored to have
been considering a possi-
ble purchase of the Live
Oak facility.
Pilgrim's sought Chap-
ter 11 bankruptcy protec-
tion on Dec. 1 in re-
sponse to high feed
prices and a glut in the
poultry market.

Semi-pro football league attracts local talent


Including a slew of Suwannee County players


The Saints in action against the Volusia County Ravens. Photo: Submitted

The Lake City Saints traveled to
Daytona Beach Dec. 13 for a preseason
matchup with the #1 ranked Volusia
County Ravens. A close game was exL
pected, buit it was all Saints as they
marched up and down the field with
powerful runs by a stable of running
backs.
The Saints totaled more than 300
yards rushing, led by veteran running
back Quinton Law and rookie Morgan
Rutherford, a 2005 graduate of
Lafayette High School, where he was
an all state football player.
Head of football operations Matt Van
Etten, said the 6'2" 280-pound captain
Mike Reaves, of Branford, "controlled
the left side of the offensive line open-
ing up the gaping holes for the backs."
But it was not all run. The Saints went
to the air in the second half with Clin-
ton Alford going two for three for 69


yards and two TDs.
James Williams also hit Brandon
Cook, of Live Oak, for a 35-yard
strike. Tony Johnson led the way in re-
ceiving with 69 yards and two TDs all
in the second half. He also had the
games only interception.
Defensively it was Mitchell George
and Dewayne Newsom creating the
chaos in the backfield that helped Tor-
rey Richardson on his way to four
sacks. Chad Gaylord, of Live Oak,
and Bart Grant also had sacks.
The Ravens' only score came late in
the fourth quarter on a controversial
TD pass. The Saints, however, were
not affected. Their depth at every posi-
tion was too much and they rolled the
Ravens 36-6.
This was the semi-pro coaching de-
but for Tony Adkins, Branford High

McMurray at home racing karts during

Daytona KartWeek by Cometic Gasket

at Daytona International Speedway


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -
Jamie McMurray knows how to un-
wind before kicking off a new
NASCAR Sprnt Cup Series season
and that's by go racing at historic
Daytona Internatonanal Speedway.
For the second straight year, Mc-
Murray, who drives for Roush Fen-
way Racing in the NASCAR Sprint
Cup Series, is competing in Day-
tona KartWeek By Cometic Gasket
World Karting Association races.
As a kid, McMurray spent many
Christmas holidays with his family
in Daytona Beach racing karts at
DIS with dreams of competing in
NASCAR one day.
With that dream accomplished,
McMurray, who won the 2007 Coke
Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola at
DIS, now enjoys returning to his
karting roots when there's time on
his schedule.
"I love golf once every two
months," McMurray said. "I go
through a spell where you play a
week of golf but it hurts my back


and my knees. I don't play a lot of
golf anymore but this is the one
thing that I have foupd that T just
love."
On the first day of Daytona
KartWeek By Cometic Gasket, Mc-
Murray was tooling away on his
kart in the infield of Turns 3 and 4
with hundreds of other karters. He
has two karting friends DJ Silva
and Gary Carlton assisting him
along with his father Jim, who has
raced karts at DIS since the mid-
1970s.
He also upgraded his pit area
from last year with a new trailer
that he purchased from fellow
NASCAR competitor Jeff Burton.
"I come down here and I want it
to be fun and I want to have a good
time and I don't want it to be stress-
ful," said McMurray, whose father
Jim is sitting out the races this year
to assist his son. "Having the help

Saints, which has changed the whole

said "he is truly a great coach."
"Since we havemgyed our opera-
tions from Gainesville to Lake City,
our team has improved in so many ar-
eas. A lot of players in this area do not

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Irony in Ironman


The regular NFL season has
concluded. Brett Favre is the all
time quarterback ironman,
having started 269 consecutive
games. The irony is he isn't
going to the playoffs, the Jets
aren't going to the playoffs, the
Packers aren't going to the
playoffs but Miami is. i
Remember when Brett, a
little too full of his own
superstardom, had to leave
Green Bay. Like most
superstars he was
misunderstood, under Spo
appreciated and, I am sure,
grossly underpaid. He could By To1
have been the governor 6f
Wisconsin. The Packers had
just missed going to the Super Bowl
and Brett's interception sealed that
fate. The Pack was ready to move on
with Aaron Rodgers ,who by the way
had a good season for a team without
defense. Brett was pondering his
future, where will I be loved and
wanted and have a shot at more money
and/or a Super Bowl. "New York is the
place I oughta lend a hand" so he
loaded up his pick up and off to the
Meadowlands.
Favre upstaged the Super Bowl
champion Giants and for a brief
moment owned New York. Like Duke
Snider, Willie Mays and Warren Spahn
before him he had left his best years
somewhere else. The Jets were far
from great but Chad Pennington, who


Drtabout
m Daniels


was let go for Favre, took
a 1-15 team to the
playoffs. Pennington beat
Favre the last game of the
season in the
Meadowlands to seal
Brett's fate. The only thing
that fell further than Brett
in New York was the stock
exchange. Very ironic. The
guy who wasn't good
enough, weak arm, injury
prone, not a bold leader,
won. The fact that Brett
threw an interception
that led to a Miami score
didn't help either.


Joe Namath LA, Joe
Montana KC, Johnny
Unitas SD, Brett Favre NYJ, see a
pattern emerging here? These players
all played one year too many. The Jets
coach lost his job, there will be no
New York Super Bowl, the Yankees
have claimed the sports page and New
York is back to normal.
Now if they could just settle on
getting Hillary's replacement. Who
could be the next United States
Senator. Let's see. Ex-Yankee Joe
Torre, no he is in LA, Super Bowl star
Plaxico Burress, no he's in jail, Bernic
Madoff, no he's with Plaxico, Donald
Trump, no not enough ego (yeah,
right). All the good guys are dead or
really too old. There are no washed up
athletes left. Maybe they can recycle
an old political name or two?

cool stuff makes it laid back."
McMurray also enjoys the little things about karting
and that includes the drive from North Carolina the day
after Christmas.
"My dad and I left 8:30 in the morning after Christ-
mas," McMurray said. "I drove the whole way. This
might sound odd but I wouldn't want to drive to Cup
races but I missed the fact of stopping at a truck stop
and experiencing that. It's different.
"I don't know if I missed it but I wanted to experi-
ence all of that again and I had just a great time experi-


encing that with my dad. My dad and I we fight like
crazy and 10 seconds later it's all good but just little
things like stopping at the truck stop or dealing with
traffic."
Sunday was only a practice day for all the karters.
McMurray will compete in a single race on Monday and
Tuesday in the Sprint Championships on the half-mile
sprint track located in the infield between Turns 3 and 4.

Don't Boast Of Our


Virtues

It is often tempting to inform others of our virtuous
activities. For many of us, it can be difficult to resist
telling others when we have made a sizable donation or
| done a good deed. However, in addition to the fact
1A that most people are put off by such boasting, .
There is an even better reason to avoid this.
,rT hat is, we should strive to be detached
froin our good deeds, because they can be
-a source of self-serving pride, and it is
-all too easy to take more credit than
Swe actually deserve for such acts of
goodness. We should give the
credit to God, and strive to
continue doing good works
WOR LD'S quietly and without great shows
MOSTof pomposity. The real reason
to develop our virtues is so
MOS that we can genuinely help our
GENER US fellow human beings, and in
GENEROUS the process, develop a

SIVand effortlessly pursues
GUY I c goodness. So, we should 0
J ( "-2proceed to do our good deeds
quietly, and also remember the
S.' admonition of our Lord: "Beware of '
the scribes, who like to go about in
lnig robes, and love salutations in the
market places and the best seats in the
synagogues and the places of honor at
feasts, who devour widows' houses and for a
pretense make long prayers." (Luke 20:46-47)

Beware of practicing your piety before man in order to be seen
by them;for then you will have no reward from your Father
who is in heaven.

You, man or woman, probably
"know" a lot of other people. Someone
has said, "You have a lot of associates
but few friends." In other words there
usually are a lot of people you "know"
casually. But the term "know" has
come to mean something with far less
depth than it did at one time.
The Christmas season has come and
gone for another year and
you have heard the Christ-
mas story another time. In
Matthew's narrative of the
story, Matthew 1:18-25, in B
verse 25, the Bible says,
"And "knew" her not till
she had brought forth her
firstborn son." That does-
n't mean Joseph didn't
know who Mary was!
In Genesis 19 two an-
gels came to Sodom in the
evening and Lot invited ;
them to spend the night in
his home. Meanwhile, ac-
cording to the Bible, the
men of the city surrounded
the house and verse 5
says, "And they called
unto Lot, and said unto
him, Where are the men
[addressing Lot concern-
ing the angels] which
came in unto thee this
night? Bring them out
unto us that we may
"know" them. And if you
go on and read the chapter
you'll see they wouldn't .
take "no", for an answer
and as a result verses 24
and 25 say, "Then the "
Lord rained upon Sodom
and Gomorrah brimstone
and fire from the Lord out
of heaven; And he over-
threw those cities and all
the plain, and all the in-
habitants of the cities, and
that which grew upon the
ground." God destroyed
Sodom and Gomorrah be-
cause the sin of homosex-
uality had become so ram-
pant. Man is not to
"know" man!
Christians must take a
firm stand against sin.

Heart Matters
By Angie Land

Happy New Year!! As
we catch our breath from
all the busyness of the hol-
idays, let's take a peek
into the fresh, clean pages
of our 2009 calendar.
What does the upcoming
year have in store for you?
I'm not necessarily talking
about the appointments al-
ready penciled in or your
work schedule, but rather
those things that should be
a priority. You know, those
all important aspects of
our lives that keep getting
pushed aside as we re-
spond to the urgent de-
mands of each day.
Chances are good that
your list and mine share
the big three: health, fi-
nances, and relationships.
In fact, most folks who ad-
mit to making New Year's
Resolutions will usually
have at least one of these

three on their list every
year, as well we should.
It is a proven part of hu-
man nature that denying
ourselves is not our strong,
suit, yet to be successful
in these three areas, sacri-
fice is exactly what is re-
quired. This is no doubt
why change is so difficult
not only to achieve, but
also to maintain. The big
three are on my list every
year in some shape or
form...I suspect they will
continue to make the list
each year, depending on
my current circumstances.
However, over the past
several years I have cele-
brated more measurable
progress, and I wanted to
share the reasons: First,
my list began getting more
specific...like what exactly
what about my health did I
want to work on and
whichirelationships need-
ed special attention this
year? Second, instead of
trying to fix things on my
own, I began to look for
help.
In the book of Proverbs,
the Bible gives us a great
place to start: "Commit to
the Lord whatever you do,
and your plans will suc-
ceed," (Proverbs 16:3).
This doesn't mean to make
your plans to do whatever
you want and then ask
God to make them happen,
but rather to seek God's
counsel as you plan and
He will give you instruc-

tions that will result in
success. Then, as you get
ready to work the plan,
find a friend or two or a
group to help you stay the
course. Accountability is
the fuel that keeps us go-
ing when we really would
rather not exercise, eat
healthy, stop abusing cred-
it cards, or give that an-
noying relative a little
compassion. We like to
give successful reports
rather than own up to our
mistakes, so let that work
in your favor!
Which of the big three.
is critical to you having a
more successful 2009?
Seek the Lord and commit
your plan to Him...get spe-
cific and enlist the help of
a few folks who can cheer
you on and help you reach
your goals! Blessings for a
healthy, financially sound
and relationship rich New
Year!

New Year's Gospel


Music Spectacular


set for Jan. 4

Legendary Naomi and the Segos, along with LifeSong, will be
the featured groups for a New Year's Gospel Music Spectacular
concert on Sunday, January 4, at 2 p.m. The concert will take place
at Bible Deliverance Church in Madison, and the admission is
FREE.
Enjoying 50 years of full time music ministry, the Segos continue
to create popular sounds with strong biblical lyrics and quality
Southern Gospel Music.
Originally known as The Sego Brothers and Naomi, this group
began gaining exposure in the late 1950s. James Sego, along with
his wife Naomi and brothers W.R. and Lamar hosted a popular
television program on WMAZ- TV in Macon, Ga. It was during this
time they traveled to Nashville, Tenn., and recorded their first hit
that would gain them national recognition, "Is My Lord Satisfied
With Me." However, superstardom came in 1962 when The Sego
Brothers and Naomi became the first group in history to record and
sell one million records with the song "Sorry, I Never Knew You."
The rest of the 1960s and 70s saw them touring the globe with
many other hit songs. During the 1970s their popularity increased
with performances on the popular TV show, "The Gospel Singing
Jubilee." Perhaps one of their biggest songs came 'along during that
time as they enjoyed the success of the chart topper "Hallelujah
Square."
Now; in their fifth decade of gospel music ministry this group
continues to press forward for the cause of Christ. Traveling to
some 200 dates a year all over the United States and Canada, the
message of this group remains strong and powerful. Perhaps it is
each group member's own personal experience with God that
continues to drive their excellence in performance and ministry.
Naomi and the Segos-is a legendary name in gospel music. With
their traditional sounds, musical excellence, and sincerity, 'they
produce a message that will lead people to Christ.
LifeSong is a new group to the gospel music world that presents a
fresh sound, but carries the same message. The young trio, ages
from 21-26, consists of Bryant Thigpen, Steven Gunter and Kaomi
Cruce.
In its third month of ministry, the group has made great strides
within the gospel music industry. January 1, 2009 will bring about
the release of their much-anticipated release, Cross Ties, to the
Gospel music world. Whether it's at a church, fair, convention or a
concert, the group presents the message of Jesus Christ to crowds of
all ages.
For more information, please call (850) 464-0114 or (904) 472-
7865, or visit www.northfloridaconcerts.com.

With friends like mine who needs a diet?


By Rev. James L. Snyder

A New Year has dawned and I am still
'trying to recover from my New Year's
Eve activities. I never stay up to see the
infamous ball drop at Times Square in
New Yolk City. I see enough people
dropping the ball all year long I do not
need to'watch somebody do it on pur-
pose. Actually, I would like to see more
people on the ball this coming year.
For many people Neiw Year's means
New Year's resolutions. I would like to
know whoever started this New Year's
resolution nonsense. Didn't they have
anything else to do?
Perhaps, and I am only guessing here,
the first person who made a New Year's
resolution was Adam in the Garden of
Eden. He looked at Eve thoughtfully and
said, "I think I'll turn over a new leaf."
Thus began the annual ritual imposed
on all human beings.
Last year my New Year's resolution
was that I would try not to be as humble
as I was the previous year. I would like
to say I achieved my goal but I am too
humble to boast about my accomplish-
ments.
Perhaps, on the top of most people's
list of New Year's resolutions has some-
thing to do with.diets. I admire those
who stick to a diet and lose 1,000,000
pounds. I say I admire them; I'm just not
going to join their ranks, thank you. The
only pounds I ever lose are British ster-
ling.
If I ever go on a diet, the one I will use
will be to see how many pounds I can
gain. After all, whenever I try to lose.
pounds I always end up gaining pounds.
So I am thinking, if I try to gain'pounds I
will end up losing pounds. It makes per-
fect sense to me.
The last diet I stuck to the only thing
that happened to me was my hair got
thin. Of course, who really wants fat
hair? Actually, I'm grateful for what hair
I have, fat or thin. Every morning I tease
it into place and it in return teases me
into thinking it really cares. We soon
shall part ways.
But I need to buckle up and get serious
about my diet resolution for this coming
year. The reason I know I need to do this
is because the-Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage said to Yours Truly, "You need
to buckle up and get serious about your
diet." And she is never wrong, at least
not in any way that I could document and
hold it over her as some bargaining chip.
So, I will let the chips fall where they
may.
I am not sure how this whole diet busi-


ness is going to end up or down as the
case may be, but I shall give it a whirl.
I know I will have some difficulties be-
cause of several contrary things.
I have come to that stage in life where
my body acts as if it does not know me.
And it certainly deserves a well-earned
Emmy. My body and I are not in harmo-
ny on anything.
For example, if I want to take a nap in
the afternoon, my body resists. No matter
how drowsy I may be at the time, as soon
as I situate myself to indulge in an after-
noon nap my body is fully aroused to
complete awareness. And if that was not
bad enough, my brain is racing with so
many things I need to do.
If I decide I am not going to take a nap
and pick up a book to read, my body im-
mediately goes into slumber mode. I
barely turn to the first chapter when my
eyes roll back into my head and every-
thing turns dark and all quiet on the
Western front.
Another difficulty I will have to face
with my diet has to do with my friends.
My so-called friends. Ha!
I believe there is a diabolical conspira-
cy among these friends of mine. Whenev-
er I'm around them, they are always co-
ercing me into eating things I really do
not need to eat.
"Aw, come on," they chide me, "one
more piece of pie isn't going to kill you."
Then, once I eat it, they make me feel
guilty for eating.
There is one remark, if I hear it one
more time I will not be responsible for
my actions. It is, "Are you going to eat
that or wear it?" I do have a snappy retort
but I am saving that for a really special
occasion.
Between my body and my friends, I am
going to have a terrible time this coming
year with a diet. I can't do too much with
my body but I think before I start my
new diet I will get me some new friends.
Friends that are fatter than I am.
Even the great apostle Paul struggled
with this matter of resolutions. Finally he
wrote, "Brethren, I count not myself to
have apprehended: but this one thing I
do, forgetting those things which are be-
hind, and reaching forth unto those things
which are before, I press toward the mark
for the prize of the high calling of God in
Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:13-14 KJV).
I can't change the past. I'm not sure
about the future. But, like the apostle
Paul, "I press toward the mark..." As long
as Christ is before me, nothing can dis-
courage me.
