SMS students chime in


Abercrombie athletic

scholarship established


By Jeff Waiers

wife Angela said last

arship will be open to stu-
dents in all areas of ath-
letics. Angela Abercrom-

Gainesville during Tom
Abercrombie's hospital-
ization.
Angela Abercrombie
said the money was nev-
er touched, and that she
thought the scholarship
would be a good use for
the funds.
"I thought it would be
an appropriate use for
the money that people
already donated to Tom-
my, because he loved
Suwannee athletics," she
said.
Abercrombie said she
wanted to thank the
whole community and
all those that have shared
their prayers, concerns
and well wishes.
"We've been so over-
whelmed by the generos-,
ity of the community,"
she said.
Donations to the
scholarship fund can be
made at any First Feder-
al Bank of Florida loca-
tion in Live Oak.or Lake
City.

Tobacco Preventi


By Eric Gipson,
Tobacco Prevention Specialist,
Suwannee County
Health Department

Over the holidays friends and family gather together
for holiday parties, football games and other social
events. After a good meal, you might want to have a
smoke or two, but some of your family complains about
the secondhand smoke. You take it outside. While out-
side, take the time to think not only about the people
around you, but about YOURSELF. If you've thought
about quitting before, make this New Year begin with a
purpose. Make sure that you are around for future fami-
ly gatherings. Call 1-877-U-CAN-NOW (1-877-822-
6669), the Florida Quitline.
The toll free telephone number above gives FREE
services for ALL Floridians wanting to quit smoking or
chewing/dipping tobacco themselves or getting infor-
mation for someone in their life. When you call the
number, there is someone available twenty-four hours a
day, seven days a week.
You may have seen this telephone number before and
wondered if it really works. Well, according to a May
15 report for Reuters this year, Florida's Quitline had

That's a lot of people looking for help

Like many states, Florida's Quitline
state residents looking for help in breal
smoking and smokeless tobacco. In ad


selling, Floridians can receive treatment to help stop us-
ing tobacco. Floridians with income below $45,000 can
get treatment up to eight weeks and those with income
above $45,000 can get help up to four weeks. Florida
residents ages 18. and older can get free patches, gum,
and lozenges to help them quit.
I The counseling and the self help materials that Quit-
line gives are in English and Spanish, but can be trans-
lated for other languages. There are also TDD services
for Floridians unable to hear.
There is also a Fax to Quit program through Quitline
that helps tobacco users when they apply through a hos-
ital, clinic, or health department. The tobacco user dis-
S''cusses the services with the nurse or doctor and com-
pletes a form. A counselor will call the patient, but it is
Important to write down your language on the form so
the right counselor that can speak your language can

SOnce again, the telephone number is 1-877-822-6669,
or just remember 1-877-U-CAN-NOW.

tion Specialist for the Suwannee County Health Depart-
ment, at 362-2708, extension 232. If you are in need of
any additional information about Quitline or other re-

Cara Campbell is new pharmacist


at Cheek and Scott Drugs


Jeff Scott, president and CEO of Cheek
and Scott Drugs, Inc. recently announced
that Cara Campbell, PharmD, has joined
the professional staff of Cheek and Scott
Drugs.
Cara, a Suwannee High School gradu-
ate, received her A.A. from Lake City
Community College and received her
Doctor of Pharmacy from FAMU in 2002.
Cara is married to Matt Campbell, a 5th
grade teacher at Suwannee Intermediate
School, and has two children, Coby and
Maci. She is the daughter of Andy and
Kathy Day.
Cara's interest in pharmacy began when
she was still in high school and worked
part-time for a pharmacy chain. At that
time she realized that she truly enjoyed
working with people and assisting them in
taking the right medications and helping
them make the best use of their medi-
cines. Cara says that one of the primary
aspects of working'with Cheek and Scott
that she is already impressed with is their
organization.
Cara has observed that because their
support staff is so numerous, as well as
organized, it gives the pharmacists more
time to spend with patients.
"Because there is so much help in the
pharmacy," Cara noted, "the pharmacists
are able to spend more time with patients.


FREE
Weight Loss &
Health Awareness Clin-
ics is providing therapiststoad-
minister weight loss and stop
smoking, group hypnotic
therapy.
For many people, this
therapy reduces 2 to 3 clothing
sizes and/or stops smoking.
Funding for this project
comes from public donations.
Anyone who wants treatment
will receive professional hyp-
notherapy free from charge.


We are actually able to counsel with them
about their medications."
Cara said patients are often seeking
someone just to listen to them.
This rapport that is built with patients
enables Cara and the other Cheek and
Scott pharmacists to instruct them on the
proper use of medications.
In addition to being impressed with the
organizational aspectsof Cheek and -
Scott, Cara related that she is pleased to
be working with a family-oriented compa-
ny. She stated that it is impressed upon all
employees that life's priorities should be
God first, then family, and then your
work. This means a lot to a busy pharma-
cist who is also a wife and mother.
Cheek and Scott has an experienced
staff of registered nurses, respiratory ther-
apists and pharmacists dedicated to quali-
ty care. They bill Medicare and Medicaid
as well as most other third parties. Free
patient instruction and training is provid-,,
ed for all medical equipment provided by'
Cheek and Scott. As many, many families;i
in this area can attest to, they offer 24-
hour emergency service.
Cheek and Scott's bright yellow VW
bugs and their "wrapped" vans have be-
come a familiar sight throughout Suwan-
nee and Columbia Counties, as well as
throughout North Florida. These cheerful

BIBLE VERSE
"Seek good, not evil,
that you may live.
Then the LORD God
Almighty will be with

good; maintain justice

the LORD God
Almighty will have

-'Amos 5:14-15


I hope everyone had a safe .
and joyous Christmas and New
Year. When I stepped on the
scales this week, I could tell I,
spent too much time at the
trough. When family members
asked me what I wanted as a
gift, my reply sounded like my
Daddy. I don't need anything
and don't want anything. Spend
your money on yourself and
the kids. You know, the older I
get, the more I sound like Dad-
dy. I don't suppose that's a bad thing.
Over 500 kids had a better Christmas
because of the efforts of the Live Oak
Fire Department and City of Live Oak
employees. I can't help but to brag on
everyone again. A big THANK YOU
goes out to the many businesses and
individuals that played such an impor-
tant part in making this year's toy dri-
ve such a success. Many other groups
certainly did their share in ministering
to the needs and wishes of kids and
families. Everyone is commended for
your caring.
I have always heard that it is bad
luck to.take the Christmas tree down
until after the New Year. If that be
true, we are in trouble at my house.
Diane started snatching the tree and
,,0 ,dpeorations down earl.. We
boxed them and put them up in the
ceiling of my shop. What an ordeal..It
never fails, we forget a wreath. I had
to climb the ladder again and find a
spot for it. We took down decorations
at City Hall last week. The decora-
tions in the downtown came down this
week. Thanks again to Suwannee Val-
ley Electric, OMI and city staff for
their assistance. In church several
Weeks ago, Brother Phillip said" it was
okay to pack up and put away the dec-
orations but not Christmas. The spirit
of Christmas should be in our hearts
and minds all year long. See, I was
listening.
A lot of time was spent decorating
the city. I wanted to do something
special for Nott Circle tmis Christmas.
Angels and other decorations were
added. I had a lot of comments and
compliments on how nice it looked.
Some rogue thieves stole the angels
from the Circle on Christmas Eve
night. I am thoroughly disgusted and
mad as the devil that someone would
do that. The angels were about five
feet tall with wire and vine weaving
with white lights. The bugles were
trimmed with gold lights. I am offer-
ing a $100 reward for the return of the
angels and the names of the thieves.
Someone has knowledge of them.
They were probably displayed in a
yard on Christmas-day orput u for
sale somewhere. I .askpyour-help in
recovering the angels and identifying
the culprits. I want theimback. Call
the Live Oak Police Depirtment or
CRIMESTOPPERS at 208-TIPS
(8477) with your info.
The first phase of the renovation to
old City Hall is complete. We had to
close the grant by the end of Decem-
ber. We tried to replicate everything as
it was originally. New doors on the
downstairs offices replace the more
modern office type doors. Walls in the
lower and upper floor were patched.
Downstairs offices were painted and
floors redone. The staircase was
stripped and re-stained. The electrical
service for the building was upgraded.
The double doors on the main en-

trance doors were duplicated to match
early pictures. The next phase of

will include restoring the south side of

height. The big bay door will be re-
turned to its original look with win-
dows and a door. Other renovations
will take place in this phase also.
You may or may not have noticed
the hundreds of feet of new sidewalks
that are being installed around the
schools. These are the results of a
Florida Department of Transportation
"Safe Route To Schools" grant. They
provide a safe walking path for stu-
dents and others to safely access the
schools without walking in the streets.
Hopefully students and other pedestri-
ans will use the walkways instead of
walking in the street.
Things are looking mighty nice
downtown. New paint on several
storefronts sure spruces up our city.
The most noticeable renovation is the
old PJiggly Wiggly shopping center. A
well groomed downtown is very im-
portant. It sends a positive signal to
visitors and prospective business. It
also serves as an important invitation
to shoppers to come into your busi-
ness and spend money. Shoppers are
more likely to cater to a business that
is clean, attractive and inviting. This is
more important than ever during these
tough economic times. I urge all busi-
nesses to step back and take a look at
your stores and evaluate your business
practices. Make your business the one
folks want to visit.
The important issue in our commu-
nity of late has been Pilgrim's Pride.
The layoffs will have a serious nega-
tive impact on our Suwannee County
community and the entire region. Not
only will employees and growers be
hit hard, the residents of the City of
Live Oak have taken our lumps. The
city is left with a $76,000 unpaid utili-
ty bill for services provided to the
feed mill. We may or may not ever re-
coup all or any of this money. We may
have to eat this. Hopefully the compa-
ny's profitability improves and we will
recover the money in the future. In or-
der to protect your future financial in-
terest, the city petitioned the courts to
require Pilgrims Pride to post a
$60,000 guarantee for future bills. We
have received the money. To ensure
future payment for services, Pilgrim's
will be billed bi-weekly on the 15th
and 30th. They have 10 days to pay
the due bill. If the city has not re-
ceived payment within the 10 days,
we will notify them that the bill has
not been paid and services will be cut
off on the third day thereafter. Should
Pilgrim's not pay the bill on the third
day, the city will discontinue services
until payment is made.
The new and old constitutional offi-
cers of Suwannee County were sworn
in this week. Congratulations and best
of luck to them all. I'm sure they will
do an admirable job for the residents
of the county. Thanks to them all for
their willingness to serve.
Just a reminder to have coffee with
your third district Councilman Mark
Stewart at Java Jax next Tuesday
morning, Jan. 13 from 7 to 8:30.
By now, we have had time to break
many of the New Year's resolutions
we made. I didn't make any new'ones,
just work on the ones I broke last
year. I hope one that everyone made is
to be more faithful in wearing your
seat belts.

Our hotline

is open 24/7.
Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak
your mind! How? By calling the Suwan-
nee Democrat Rant and Rave hotline.
The hotline never closes and is your way
to let it out. Yiu can let everyone know
how you feel as long as you express
yourself in a respectful way.
Note: In written entries to Rant and
Rave, errors 'in spelling, grammar or
punctuation are those of the authors.

Why is the city able to pay OMI a pre-
mium for public works when the rest of
the country is struggling?
Ig I i
The Code Enforcement chairman
should resign, just like all public "ser-
vants" caught abusing power. He can't
claim "I didn't know" 'cause if that's the
case, "then he's unqualified. After all,
Suwannee Co. has standards & a reputa-
tion to protect. The standards may be dou-
ble ones and the reputation a bit tarnished,
but it's ours and we're right proud of it!

I am a life long Suwannee County Citi-
zen, im ashamed of the way our roadsides
are polluted with garbage. As i drive
through other counties that surround
Suwannee County,'it is apparent that we
don't take care of bur roadsides. I chal-
lenge anyone who' reads this to secure
your garbage so it doesn't blow out of your
vehicle, also if you see someone who
doesn't, report them to the local authori-
ties. I also challenge the local authorities
to put a stop to illegal dumping and road-
side littering.

I read where the city got beat out of
$76,000 by Pilgrim's Pride. I guess that's 2
less SUV'S for the city this year.
M E
I received my utility bill with free ad-
vertising for a local councilman and local
restaurant. I guess you can do what ever
you want at city hall. Buy luxury cars, do
work on private property, turn a blind eye
to workers who break the rules. The waste
and corruption at City Hall hasn't changed
all year and neither have the players.

Why has the Democrat conveniently or
specifically failed to report on the
progress.of the hiring of a new football-
coach at Suwannee High School? Not a
single article on who the favorites could
or should be, who is not being considered,
what specific strengths and qualifications
the committee is searching for, etc. Also,
the Democrat has failed to report on the
peculiarity of the new Superintendent
seeking to hire both an Athletic Director
and a coach. In most normal circum-
stances the Athletic Director is responsi-
ble for hiring and firing the coach. Yet, the
current administration has circumvented
this routine process to tie the hands of the
future Athletic Director. Why hasn't this
been reported on in the newspaper? Good
ole boys network at work once again?
Like the lady in the Wendy's commercial
said several years ago, "Where's the
news" or something like that!
E ll
Now that Christmas is over our new
School Superintendent needs to start trim-
ming the fat at the school board office.
Suwannee schools are not going any-
where academically or athletically as long

as they remain top heavy with pension
diggers.

It's been a hard year'for many people
here in Suwannee County but here at the
special time of the year Lisa McKinley
has brought joy and happiness to many
children in our community. I want to
thank her for a great job that she's done.
Her Santa Shop was a big success and all
of her volunteers and the those who do-
nated deserve a great big thankyou. Lisa
McKinley keep up the good work.

In reference to the $25,000 that the
county has to pay Johnny Wooley Why
don't Mr. Fowler, Mr. Caruthers and
George Burnham's boss commissioner in
the south end of the county have to pay for
this. Out of their pockets instead of the
taxpayers. They're the ones that done the
dirty deed and fired him like they did.

This is about the woman who is blam-
ing the school system on her two drop out
children. I believe that she might want to
recognize that this could be possibly be
bad parenting and not the school's fault.

Douglass Center in reference to last
week's article: it was correct in the dan-
gers of the vicinity and the facility. Bad
lighting, bad parking, strange people wan--
dering around etc. Why can't Live Oak
provide the use of the nice space of the
coliseum? Police or sheriffs department
should prove better or more people when
these places are being used, especially at
night. Should anything happen to anyone,
you have been put on notice. A concerned
citizen.

I'm calling to complain about, the
Suwannee County, the so-called Drug
Task Force that has been created. I saw a
lady make a comment about the. Douglass
Center not being an appropriate place for
her child to play basketball. Wellif the
SuwanneeCounty Drug, Task Force Unit
if they had been taking the money that
they have been receiving from those peo-
ple that they were busting, they could take
that money and pour it back in the com-
munity. Instead they are all buying brand
new Chargers for the police department
when they already had cars. So we need to
get in contact with one of our commis-
sioners or somebody like that if it really is
a big issue as far as somebody not having
appropriate places for our children to go
and play extra curricular activities or par-
ticipate in sports. So that would be some-
thing that could be brought up. Unfortu-
nately I don't live in Live Oak, Florida
anymore so I won't be able to attend any
of those meetings to give my input. But
that could be something that could be
brought to somebody's attention.

Callers to 208-8314 may express their
thoughts, good or bad, 24/7 about com-
munity issues and politics, but not about
private individuals or businesses. If you
prefer you may e-mail your comments to

The Live Oak Thanksgiving
Outreach Ministry hosted it's
annual Thanksgiving Outreach%
meal on Nov. 22, 2008. Dinners
were provided for area churches
for low income, disabled, elder-
ly and anyone in need of a meal.
According to our event coor-
dinator over 150 meals were
served at the Recreation Center,
over 450 meals delivered, thus


making a total of over 600
meals served. All items were
donated by local businesses, or-
ganizations, churches and
friends.
The Outreach Ministry wishes
to thank each and every one
who made this a successful
event. None of this would have
been possible without the help
of the community. All the


servers, cooks, organizers, fami-
ly and friends, we'vould like to
thank you for getting involved,
and setting aside time to assist
and help someone in need. *
We cannot stress the impor-
tance of what you or your com-
pany, organization, church or
business has provided over the
past three years. Each of those
years over 600 meals were


served and/or delivered to some-
one in need. You should always
feel proud of your contribution
in making it happen each year.
The dinners were well re-
ceived in the community.

Thank you,
Del B. Philpot, President, Com-
munity Thanksgiving Outreach

Q How often does my a/c
unit need Freon?

Your A/C system doesn't use or
consume Freon. If your unit needs
A recharging every year it has a
leak, and with the cost of Freon this can get
expensive. Also as your unit looses Freon
it becomes less efficient and more costly
to run. So the next time you have a service
call and need Freon have your Qualified
Service Technician do a electronic leak
check to find the leak and have it repaired.

2008. Scott and Ganote wanted to start fresh after a stint
with another band and soon found former band mate
Mullins was available. Before long, well established mu-
sician Randlett, who holds a degree in music education,
was onboard to round out Silverado.
The band has a unique sound due to Scott's drive to be
different after years of playing in various bands. The
band is seasoned in tear jerkers, hard rock and classic and
modem country and can keep you on the dance floor or
singing along with songs
you all know. You can ex-
pect the unexpected from

ers Abercrombie his best friend.
"There's probably no secret he didn't
know about me and I about him," Day
said Wednesday.
The two hunted, fished, played .ball,
coached and raised their children togeth-
er.
"He was a good athlete," Day said,
adding that Abercrombie was often asked
to play with the Major League teams as a
youngster when he was still in the Minor
Leagues.
*Day recalled how Abercrombie got the
nickname "Scoop."
An older player on the team told Tom-
my that he "ran like a turtle," Day said.
"He would kind of scoot around the
bases."
Instead of calling him "Scoot," Aber-
crombie became known as "Scoop."
Day remembers the days when he and
Abercrombie took their sons Hunter and


Chase deer hunting. At night they would
tell stories around the campfire, including
accounts of a character Abercrombie
made up called Red Lester, who was said
to be lurking in the woods.
Day said he and Abercrombie would
shine the flashlight in the woods and tell
the boys they saw a deer and for them to
go catch it. Then they would scream or
growl like a bear. The boys were 6 at the
time.
"I don't think they got over it until they
were 15 or 16," Day said, laughing.

Coaching days
;Greg Scott and Jason Furry worked
with Abercrombie at the rec department.
Abercrombie coached Babe Ruth base-
ball and softball games.
Cindy Meredith, who was the district
commissioner for the Babe Ruth league at
the time, attended local tournaments to
ensure the games were played by the
rules.
Furry, who was Suwannee Parks and
'Recreation's athletic superintendent at the
time, remembered that one of those rules
prohibited use of tobacco on the field. It

no firewall separating the
bay that houses the fire en-
gine from the sleeping
quarters. The sleeping area
has only one exit, though
Florida law requires a mini-
mum of two. In addition to
that the station lacks exit
and emergency lights as
well as an alarm system.
Commissioner Douglas
Udell expressed concern.
"It seems to me we have
violation after violation,"
Udell said.
Conner said the issues
were brought to light after
an inspection by county
building inspector Pat Sura.
Conner noted that prob-
lems continue to arise from
Station 42, but hopes this
will be the last.
"I feel like it's time to put
this thing to bed, I feel like
this is the final issue that.
we're going to have to deal
with hopefully," Conner
said.
The county commission
in November authorized
Sheriff Tony Cameron to
investigate questionable
spending patterns at the sta-
tion. Invoices show Station
42 spent $7,294 within
three months at three local
building supply stores. It is
not clear if the purchases
were authorized in advance,
in writing, as county rules
require. Records further in-
dicate Station 42 may have
spent as much as $44,000
in county funds since 2006.
The findings have reported-
ly been turned over to the
state attorney's office for

wooded area behind the
Huddle House restaurant.
A homeless man told of-
ficers that a person match-
ing the suspect's description
walked behind the restau-
rant a short time before the
robbery and ran through the
woods in the same area af-
terward. The witness said
he heard a vehicle start up
and speed off from the di-
rection the suspect ran.
Video surveillance cam-
eras captured the crime, but
police say the footage
failed to yield a cleat image
of the suspect.
Officers with the SCSO
and the Live Oak Police
Department participated in
the search.
The suspect is described
as a white male, about 175
pounds, with wavy brown,
medium-length hair. He is
about 5 feet 9 inches tall
and was wearing a white
shirt with stripes, blue jeans
and ball cap. Anyone with
information about the crime
is asked to contact the sher-
iffs office at 386-362-2222
or Crime Stoppers at 386-

possible action.
Local electrician Bobby
Brickles, asked by Sura to
inspect Station 42, said he
found "numerous viola-
tions" with the electrical
system.
He told commissioners
that the building lacked
ground faults, most of the
outlets had either the wrong
covers or none at all, and
that outlets were not 48
inches off the ground as per
the National Electric Code.
"It's unsafe for the men to
go in there," Brickles said


by phone Tuesday after-
noon.
Commissioner Wesley
Wainwright, whose district
the station is in, said he
wants Conner to get an esti-
mate on the cost of bringing
the building up to code.
"I'd like for you to get a
contractor to get price,"
Wainwright told Conner. "It
may end up being a situa-
tion that is not feasible."
Conner said the electrici-
ty had recently been shut
off at the station, rhich is
unoccupied.


was a rule that was overlooked locally,
Furry said.
"Tommy liked to dip," he said. "He
would have to hide when she came
around."
Scott remembers Abercrombie engag-
ing in friendly debates with Meredith over
the game of baseball.
"He and (Meredith) knew the game so
well, they would go back and forth on
technicalities of the rules," said Scott,
who is Suwannee Parks and Recreation
director. "They were fun to watch."
"He had a way of getting the most out
of a player," Day said of Aberciombie's
coaching style. "He would let players
know when they did something wrong,
but pat them on the back when they did
something right."

22 years as SMS dean
Abercrombie's ability to connect with
students spilled over into his job as dean
at Suwannee Middle School.
SMS Principal Norri Steele said Aber-
crombie, known by students as Mr. A or
Coach A, knew "who was going with
whom, who wanted to fight, who was im-
proving, etc."
Abercrombie often ordered sports
equipment from Tom Daniels, owner and
operator of the Sports Connection. The
two were also friends.
"He had a way with the kids," Daniels
said. "He could relate to them. He could
give them a break; it might be all they
needed."
Daniels said Abercrombie told' him
about an incident in which a student was
thrown off the bus by the driver. Aber-
crombie knew the student was a good kid.
"How do I tell the administration that
it's not the kid, it's the adult?" Abercrom-
bie asked Daniels.
On another occasion, Abercrombie
came to Daniels' shop to order some girls'
volleyball shoes. He coached volleyball at
the time.
"She's really going to appreciate these,"


Daniels remembers Abercrombie saying.
"I thought they were for his daughter,"
Daniels said. "It was for a student who
was poor and couldn't afford shoes."
Steele said teachers are using writing
assignments as a way to help students
cope with their loss. Here are a few of
their comments: "He was like the Chuck
Norris of SMS." "He would always talk to
me whether it was important or not."
"Coach A was a warm hearted guy and
just wanted kids to make good choices. I
will always have respect for him."
Steele said when asked a question by
administrators at the district office recent-
ly, she responded, "If Tommy were here
he'd be the person I'd ask."
She said Abercrombie, who was SMS
dean for 22 years, will be missed by stu-
dents and colleagues alike.

Faith and family
Abercrombie was a man of faith who
loved his family.
He served as a deputy sheriff for five
years under former sheriff Robert
Leonard.
Clay Ross remembers Abercrombie
telling him it was his job as a deputy that
prompted him to turn to God.
"He was putting himself in harm's way
regularly," Ross said. "Tommy was very
committed to his relationship with the
Lord. That was priority to Tommy."
"There was nothing more important to
Tommy than family," said Mixon. "They
meant everything to him without a doubt."
"He spent a lot of time on the field with
his kids," Mixon added.
Abercrombie coached his three chil-
dren, Hunter, Taylor and Hollan. He mar-
ried Angela, his high school sweetheart.
"There's apiece of Tommy in all of us,"
Scott said about the friends and family
Abercrombie left behind. "We need to re-
member what he would expect of us."
Scott said that means to do our best in
whatever we do and to do it for the right
reasons.

national
champion.
Don't tell my cousin Vinny's team,
the Utah Utes, they think they
already won it. More and more,
playoffs sound like they are needed
more than the BCS. We emphasize
the B and the S. The SEC had a great
bowl season and we will give
Alabama a break. Didn't they lose to
an undefeated team? Go Gators!
The NFL playoffs continue. The
Eagles and the Giants are the only
two teams left that are ranked in the
top 10 in offense and defense. The
playoffs have lead to the firing of at
least two coaches, Denver and the
Jets, who should have made it but
didn't. The Lions and Cardinals are
simply horrible. The Dolphins,
Ravens and Falcons all Went to the
playoffs with first year never-head-
coached-in-the-NFL head coaches.
Sounds like the wave of the future,
don't bankon it.Next )ear will see at
least two ofthose four positions
being filled by former coaches.
Chemistry is a big part of team
efforts. Just ask the Dallas didn't-
make-the-playoffs Cowboys. T.O. has
put the 'T' back in team. The Super
Bowl is the only football game left
for February. If January had 32 days
we could have gotten the 2008
football season done only one month
into 2009;
The search for Suwannee's head
coach continues. The rumors say over
70 applicants from around the
country and many familiar names
from the North Florida-South
Georgia area. Hopefully a decision
will be made in the next few weeks.
The administration is also looking
to see if the FHSAA will let us move
to another district. Our new district
gives us as many runs to Jax as the
mail truck. In the meantime, former
head coach Tommy Chambers is
proceeding with the football awards
banquet something our last coach
walked away from. An effort will be
made to sell more season tickets this
year but until then, there are still a
few soccer games left, basketball is
in season and baseball is right around
the corner. Support your local
athletics. Put our kids on the field and
off the streets."


Florida Fish

Busters'

January 2009

By Bob Wattendorf Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission

"Nature deficit disorder" is a
growing concern, but a new initia-
tive of the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
and others endeavors to make the
problem obsolete.
Coined by Richard Louv in the


Research shows that for young chil-
dren every extra hour of daily television
can increase the risk of attention deficit
disorder symptoms by 2 percent.

book Last Child in the Woods, na-
ture deficit disorder refers to the
growing disconnect between people
and the outdoors.
To address these concerns over,
Ihe disconnect, the "Get Outdoors
Florida!" coalition is bringing to-
gether highly energized staff from
state and federal conservation and
land-management agencies, state
and county health organizations,
non-government organizations deal-
ing with youth, conservation educa-
tion or health organizations, univer-
sities, and commercial businesses.
The coalition's mission is "Engaging
communities, families and individu-
als in outdoor experiences to
achieve healthier lifestyles and sus-
tain Florida's natural resources."
The Centers for Disease Control
reports that more than one in six
youth ages 2-29 were obese, creat-
ing risks for heart disease, diabetes,
respiratory problems and more.
Meanwhile, daily participation in
school physical education programs
dropped from 42 percent in 1991 to
33 percent in 2005. Studies also
demonstrate that children between
the ages of 8 and 18 spend an aver-
age of 6.5 hours-per day with elec-
tronic media. For young kids, every
hour of extra TV increases the like-
lihood of their developing attention-
deficit, hyperactivity disorder
(ADHD) by age 7, by 10 percent.
Remaining in modern, sealed build-
ings all day also increases the preva-


lence of allergies and asthma be-
cause of molds, mildews and al-
lergens that aren't "aired out."
Many parents want their kids
away from the electronic
babysitters the television,
DVDs, iPods, Nintendos and
instead want them engaged in
play outside. Not all of those
kids may realize it, but they may
be wishing for the same thing.
If just the joy of getting out-
doors for some creative free play
and recreation isn't enough, re-
search shows there are many
benefits to the individual, family
and society when young people
engage in outdoor activities.
Studies have clearly demon-
strated that children who spend
time outdoors perform better acade-
mically, play more creatively, have
less stress, and are more imagina-
tive. In addition, they experience
fewer symptoms of ADHD, have
healthier immune systems and de-
velop a greater respect for them-
selves, others and nature than do
their peers who do not recreate out-
side.
These connections with nature ad-
dress not only'health and education
issues but also societal issues, such
as sustaining fish, wildlife and their
habitats in the face of unprecedented
development.

als most excited about the coalition
have been actively creating pro-
grams to get Floridians back to na-

coalition provides an opportunity to
bring these dissonant efforts togeth-
er to be more productive. One of the
first efforts by the coalition will be
to seek the support of Florida's state
government.
,The time is right for this initiative.
Government programs at federal,
state and local levels have emerged
in response to the deficit of nature

David Ragan to Compete in Ice Cold Shriner Bowl


BRASELTON, GA Most
of the testing program'for
NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series
has been restricted for the
2009 season, but that hasn't
slowed one of the series'
brightest young stars. David
Ragan will return home in Jan-
uary, as today it was an-
nounced that he has entered
the Ice Cold Shriner Bowl at
Lanier National Speedway in
Braselton, GA, on Saturday
and Sunday, Jan. 10 and 11.
Ragan, who finished 13 in
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series
points while racing the famous
number-6 for Roush-Fenway
Racing, will compete in the
Pro Late Model portion of the
Ice Cold Shriner Bowl at
Lanier. The 23-year-old is a


native of Unadilla, GA.
"We are excited to have
somebody of David Ragan's
caliber come to race in the Ice
Cold Shriner Bowl," said Ter-
ry Roberts, General Manager
of Lanier National Speedway.
"This will be the second year
that David is supporting this
event. We feel it will be bigger
and better than last year's
weekend. And we all know
there are a lot of David Ragan
fans in this area of Georgia."
Ragan will also hold an au-
tograph session for fans in at-
tendance at Lanier National
Speedway on Sunday, Jan. 11.
Ragan will be racing in part to
help benefit the Shriners Hos-
pitals for Children. Ragan
named that specific program


his official charity in 2007,
and portions of the day's pro-
ceeds will be made to Shriners
Hospitals. Fans and teams are
also encouraged to make dona-
tions during the weekend.
"It's the charity that David
supports, and much of the pro-
ceeds from the event go to
support the Shiners Hospitals.
We are getting a lot of re-
sponse from everyone in-
volved with that program na-
tionwide. It's getting to be a
really big event," added
Roberts.
"The Shriners program will
get a portion of all the ticket
sales for the weekend at
Lanier National Speedway. We
will make a donation that will
be half of what we take in


through the ticket sales, so we
encourage people to come out
and help a great cause."
This will be the second an-
nual Ice Cold Shriner Bowl at
Lanier National Speedway. A
100-lap Pro Late Model event
(GAS rules) will be featured
on Sunday, but that division

Tim Russell wins the


Red Eye 125 at New


Smyrna Speedway


2009 Season Perfect

So Far With a Pole

and a Feature Victory


CONCORD, NC Some,
people might ask what does Tim Russell have left to
prove to people that he's a legit racecar driver? He's
won countless races and just wrapped up his second-
consecutive Sunbelt.Super Late Model Series Cham-
pionship. Even champions can find something to race
for, as Russell knew that Wayne Andeison had his
number at New Smyrna Speedway (FL) in 2008; but
this was a new year. Throw in the mix Mike Skinner,
a former Camping World Truck Series Champion,
and Russell had all the reason he needed to step up
his game. When the dust settled, Anderson and Skin-
ner could only watch as the checkered flag went to
Russell.
"It was an awesome win for us," said Russell. "We
knew we had to beat Wayne (Anderson). He's won a
lot of races here in the last few months. Beating a
NASCAR driver like Mike Skinner for the win just
makes it all the more special. It feels really good to
come out on top."
Russell started outside the top 10 and picked his
way to the front. When he got to third, he took ad-
vantage of race leader Skinner's bobble that stacked
up Anderson in the second spot. Russell dove to the
bottom and grabbed the runner-up spot. Only a few
laps later, Russell made the pass for the lead and held
on over the final 45 laps.
"We had a really good car right from the get-go.
We were fast in practice, and we won the pole in
qualifying," said Russell. "They put 15 numbers in
the pill draw and we drew 11th and started working
our way to the front from there. We got around
Wayne Anderson and then by leader Mike Skinner. I
knew after, that all I had to do was hit my marks."
As most of the country is covered with snow or
foulweathte, Florida,spens. ,t, h4atyee shortest off-
season of any of the states that run Super Late Mod-
els. It was in the final weeks of November that the
last race was run on the east cost of Florida, and only
five weeks later cars were back at the track ready to
go in 2009. Russell said it was like it had only been a
few days.
"It was like I never got out of the seat," added
Russell. "The track was a little slower with the lack
of rubber on it. We changed a few things before the
race and made it a lot more driveable. I'm happy to
get the win, but now we are right back in the shop
getting things ready for Speedweeks."
Tim Russell is already gearing for Speedweeks at
New Smyrna Speedway. The nine nights of racing
has the Super Late Model teams racing eight times
including the Annual Pete Orr Memorial 100. Russell
will be looking to win his first-ever Speedweeks title.

tact Matt Dillner at (704) 788-2134 x 9, and be sure

DEP celebrates first kayaker to complete

Florida's longest sea kayaking trail

First paddler to compete the Florida
Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail


ESCAMBIA COUNTY The
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP) celebrated
Matthew Keene's completion on
Monday of a 1,600-mile sea kayak-
ing trip around Florida's peninsula
- finishing at Big Lagoon State
Park. Keene, 23, from Cocoa
Beach, is the first kayaker to com-
plete the full distance of the Flori-
da Circumnavigational Saltwater
Paddling Trail, as mapped and de-
veloped by DEP's Office of Green-
ways and Trails (OGT).
"We congratulate Matt Keene on
this significant accomplishment
and appreciate the example he has
set for others who are considering
a long distance paddling experi-
ence," said Doug Alderson, OGT's
Paddling Trail Coordinator. "My-
self and others involved in the de-
velopment and mapping of the Cir-
cumnavigational Trail appreciate
the wealth of practical travel infor-
mation Matt has collected along
the Trail which will serve as a
great resource for future kayakers."
Designated as a National Recre-
ational Trail, the Florida Circum-


navigational Saltwater Paddling
Trail educates paddlers about
Florida's rich history and fragile
coastal environment. Following the
Florida peninsula from Pensacola
around the Keys to the Georgia
border, this 1,600-mile sea kayak-
ing journey is often described as
the saltwater version of the Ap-
palachian Trail. The trail highlights
37 of Florida's 41 aquatic pre-
serves and offers paddlers access
to many state, national and local
parks, seashores, wildlife refuges,
marine sanctuaries and historic
sites.
"Before starting this journey, my
impression of Florida was that
most of the coastline was devel-
oped," said kayaker, Matt Keene.
"By completing this trail, I learned
there are still many undeveloped
areas that we need to work hard to
maintain so they can be enjoyed
for recreational purposes and a
paddling trail like the Circumnavi-
gational Trail is a great step to-
wards preserving Florida's coastal
communities and the wildlife."
DEP's Office of Greenways &


Trails manages eight state trails, in
addition to the Marjorie Harris
Carr Cross Florida Greenway,
Florida's longest green corridor
stretching 110 miles from the St.
Johns River near Palatka to the

Transforming the Ordinary -


Into the Extraordinary

Sometimes, we travel through life so quickly that we
don't notice how extraordinary the world
I' '* il', really is: At 60 miles per hour, we certainly
? won't notice the roses, let alone smell them.
JLikewise in life, if we are hurrying from one .
S-e ". frenetic task to another, we simply won't
Shave the time or energy to appreciate the
Sjoys and wonders of life. We should slow
S down and savor our food. The next time we
,, . are having a conversation with someone, we .
S. should try to be fully present with them and
S'" then notice how much richer the experience ^
S'' can be. Instead of multitasking, we should
be fully present and aware while doing only
one thing at a time. Better to do one thing .i
right than to botch two things
simultaneously. Part of transforming the
'V' 7-^ l"; i i ordinary into the extraordinary is about
,,' ,< slowing down, but it is equally important to
.. .' see the world with new eyes. Our ordinary '
way of seeing can also be a way of not seeing.
S -That is, perception allows certain things to
enter our minds at the same time that it filters out
others. What we notice is often determined by our
S~ ~ current needs or by what we are doing at the time.
For example, if we are hungry, we are more likely to
I ^see tl e restaurants as we drive down the road. To see
the world with fresh eyes, we can start by slowing
down and really noticing things. We should strive to
regain the wonder of experiencing life like a child, as ,
if for the first time, because in reality, each day, indeed
each instant, is a new creation.


For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.

Heart Matters
By Angie Land

Want to lighten your
load for 2009? No, I'm not
talking about losing
weight, but something that
"weighs us down" all the
same. Who are you hold-
ing a grudge against? Does
a knot form in your stom-
ach when you see or even
think about that person? In
Ephesians 4:32, the Bible
commands us:
"Be kind and compas-
sionate to one another, for-
giving each other, just as
in Christ God forgave
you."
According to Webster's
dictionary, the word for-
giveness has several defin-
itions: 1) to give up resent-
ment, and 2) to grant relief
from payment of a debt. In
both, the word forgive is a
verb that indicates an ac-
tion we choose to take.
This means that forgive-
ness will always be an in-
tentional choice, and
something we "will" be-
fore we "feel." We cannot
always help or immediate-
ly change the way we feel,
but we are responsible for
the choices we make and
the actions we take.
God calls us to forgive
others because He has for-
given us through Christ's
death on the cross. This
forgiveness is available to
everyone, but God only
reconciles Himself to those
who acknowledge their
sin, ask for forgiveness and
are willing to change their
ways. This marks the huge
difference between for-
giveness and reconcilia-
tion: we are also to offer
forgiveness to everyone,
and it only takes our decid-
ing to do so. However, rec-
onciliation needs much
more than an apology; it
requires the offender ac-
knowledging the wrong
and taking steps to make
things right. Many times


we make the mistake of
reconciling without for-
giveness....we jump back
in without working out a
resolution, and expose our-
selves to further pain. We
tend to do this because we
don't want to risk the loss
of ending the relationship,
and if it doesn't work, we
can just blame the other
person all over again!
Keep them feeling guilty.
People live their entire
lives in relationships like
this, never taking responsi-
bility for their own unfor-
giveness and blaming the
other person for everything
that is wrong.
We also refuse to forgive
others because we think
they will get away with the
harm they have caused,
and we want them to pay!
We need to understand that
unforgiveness keeps us
chained to not only that
person, but also the of-
fense, as long as we hold
on to it, and the truth is
that the "offending party"
may be totally,unaware
that we are carrying that
burden around! We aren't
making them pay at all,
but are we ever suffering!
Someone once said, "It's
like we want to poison
them, but it ends us killing
us. Let me assure you that
it is not hypocrisy to make
the choice to forgive some-
one.without "feeling" like
you have forgiven
them...make the choice,
and sooner or later our
feelings will line up, (the
longer we have withheld
forgiveness, the longer it
may take for our feelings
to change). Forgiving oth-
ers will always be best for
us; we can give up the bur-
den of resentment and cut
ourselves free of carrying
around a "you owe me"
debt. God urges us to do
this because our hearts
matter!

Blessings, Angle

School bus


David H. Matier
Doctor of Pas-
toral Counseling

In Galatians '
3:24 there is a
.unique term
found; school
master. What do
you think of when -'
you think about a
school master?
Most people probably
think of someone that is in
the responsible position of
a school principal. The
school master in Bible
times was the slave that
would take a child to
school. A school master
would be more akin to a
school bus than a school
principal.
The school master, in
this case, is the Law; the
Pentateuch (the first five
books of the Bible). This
Law was to be a trans-
porter; to transport the in-
dividual to Christ. Like a
school bus taking a child
up to the front door of the
school the Law brings
men to Christ. Now after
the child gets to the
school he must decide
whether-or not to go
through the door. The


"passenger"
Sof the Law
must make a
S decision;to
accept or re-
ject Christ
as the cure
for his "sin"
*Y" problem.
.-,. Now you
say, "What
sin prob-
lem?" The sin problem
brought to the forefront by
the Law. In other words, if
there was no Law how
would you know that you
are a sinner? It is through
the Law one comes to un-
derstand his need the
NEED OF A SUBSTI-
TUTE! The Law pro-
nounces man dead (Ro-
mans 6:23a) but through
Christ he can have eternal
life (Romans 6:23b). The
Law brings one up to
Christ as the school bus
brings one to school. Once
having arrived, a decision
must be made, whether-or-
not to open the DOOR
(Revelation 3:20)
