The Pregnancy Crisis Center has a new name, the
Pregnancy "Care" Center. New Hours for 2009 are Tues-
day, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Because we care for the needs of the pregnant women
and young mothers of our community we wanted that ex-
pressed in our name. If you have a need for maternity
clothes our closet is at your disposal. Good used materni-
ty clothes are always appreciated.
Our baby room is lovingly stocked with baby items
that have been donated by the caring people of Live Oak.
Blankets, made from loving hands, clothes ranging from
infant thru 2 years, socks and shoes, diapers and wipes,
used and new cribs and mattresses, care seats and many
other items are all on our shelves waiting for a new
home.
First time mothers and fathers are encouraged to come
in and view DVD's on various topics to educate them on
caring and raising their precious child. Brochures on
Adoption, Abortion, Abstinence, Condoms, STD's, Sin-
gle Parenting, and Families are available.
However, we could not provide any of these things
without our communities support. We operate 100% on
donations. Times are hard and we are seeing an increase
in the women coming to our center for help. We pray our
doors will always be open to assist women in need. We
have two major fund raisers a year, our Walk/Run for
Life which will be held in October 2009, also in April of
2009 we will be having our annual yard sale. We cannot
accept items at this time due to space issues but please
save your items until March. Donations are always ac-
cepted throughout the year both monetarily and material-
ly.
If you have a love for the Lord and a love for Life
we'd love to have you consider volunteering. Come by
our center and talk with our office manager Jean Ross.
On behalf of our Director Donna Sandage and the staff,
thank you for your continued support.

OUR
Suwannee Democrat

Wanted:

Leadership
This too the current
economic crisis shall pass.
But even as we weather this
storm, we can start planning
for the next one. We need to
start looking further down
the road, folks. It's called
long-term planning. Or, in a
word, leadership.
County officials in partic-
ular need to set aside their
political differences and
work as one to find ways to
broaden our economic base
and make us less susceptible
to sudden downturns in a
single, isolated market.
All of our eggs, in other
words, ought not be in one
basket. We must never again
find ourselves in a position
where a bad business deci-
sion by one man Bo Pil-
grim's ill-fated purchase of
Gold Kist can keep us on
tenterhooks for Lord knows
how long.
There's no such thing as a
quick fix. A steady hand and
a long-term view will serve
us best. Aggressive action is
needed, though, and it's
needed now. Is there anyone
out there who'll take up the
challenge?

Please address letters
to: Letters To The Editor,
Suwannee Democrat,
PO Box 370, Live Oak,
FL 32064.
Please include your full name, ad-
dress and daytime phone number.
We ask this so we can verify your
letter and discuss any questions
about it with you.


Want to vent?

Our hotline

is open 24/7.

Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak
your mind! How? By calling the Suwannee
Democrat Rant and Rave hotline. The hotline
never closes and is your way to let it out. You
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.

This is a rave to the Suwannee Democrat
for your daily updates on your site. I find my-
self visiting your site every morning then be-
fore going to bed. Living out of town it is
nice to keep up with your hometown happen-
ings! I appreciate the update on the little
girl's condition that was in the Christmas Day
accident. You are doing a wonderful
job..........again I say Thank You!

Are you a hairdresser who makes personal
calls while working on a client? Are you a
hairdresser who allows unruly children to
"spin around" in empty stylists' chairs? Do
you answer calls in order to make appoint-
ments for other people while working on a
regular customer? Are you a hairdresser who
gossips with your co-workers and talks about
the client who just walked out of the shop? If
you can answer "NO" to'all these questions,
i please-respond to this article.-I know. quiet a
,few people, men and women, who would
LOVE to sit in your chair!

1 take extreme exception to the comments
made by Sandra Grinell, County Code com-
pliance officer, with respect to the recent Al-
corngate scandal. No, everyone of us does
not have a code violation in our yard. Her
comments were simply attempting to "cover-
up" and distract from the code violations in-
curred by Mr. Alcorn. If "everyone" really
does have a code violation, wouldn't this be
an excellent avenue for revenue enhance-
ment for the County? Yes, but only if this
were true.

There is too much complaining about the
garbage on the streets! City residents need to
take some responsibility and put their
garbage cans by their house and not at the
street so they can blow and be knocked over.
Try to cover the can or secure the lid so ani-
mals won't get into the bags. When you see
garbage in your yard pick it up. Take care
and some pride of the land God gave us. If
we all do our part Live Oak won't look like a
dump!

IF WE TOOK ALL THE TRILLIONS OF
DOLLARS WE SEND TO OTHER COUN-
TRIES (MOST OF WHICH ENDS UP LIN-
ING SOME LEADERS POCKETS) AND
SENT THEM WHAT THEY NEED
(AMERICAN MADE) GUNS, FOOD,
LUMBER, ETC, INSTANT JOBS FOR
AMERICANS AND LESS WASTED MON-
EY. WHY NOT? PAS IT ON.

To the person who thinks the easiest way
for our President to create 4.1 mil jobs is to
force the illegals out of our country, Problem
solved? Yea right, What planet are you from?
Our government has made us Americans
lazy, by paying us to stay home with food
stamps,medicare supplements, social sec
funding for all those who haven't worked a
day in their lives and not contributed to the
funds. To make matters worse try finding an
American who will pick watermellon, or-
anges, vegetables, strawberrys,squash etc in
the hot sun from day light till dark to get the
job done. If Illegals weren't here we wouldn't
have the food in the stores. Ask any farmer
how hard it is to find help. Ask any business
owner same questions. With out the Illeagals
our world would come to a screeching halt.
Illegals should pay if their children go to our
schools, use our hospitals and health depts.
Hard working Americans should not have to
pay for everbodys free rides. Hard working
Americans are tired of carrying the load.

Head out of the hind end people. If you
signed a million$ mortgage you couldn't af-


ford with a bank that can't afford to give it
you, be it condo or chicken farm, tough!
Capitalism or greed, fine line. I don't need to
pay for your poor judgement. This valley
needs to quit relying on ag ops. only. The
newly planned industrial park is a great idea,
but we can only provide services to prisons
& poultry plants. Every body else has to put
up a utility deposit & pay the bill monthly.
Try changing the liquor laws, join the rest of
the world, provide revenue, jobs for young
folks etc. Outside investors are real scared
of this place because of this attitude. They
can't expect to hire or bring in a reliable, tal-
ented workforce under the conditions set by
the century old traditions here, WISE UP!

Well, what I wanted to know, this person
that's talking about this new president com-
ing in, now I didn't vote for him. But, force
the immigrant workers out of this country.
Well who is going to pick the tomatoes?
Who is going to do the crops? Give me a
break here. I mean, you know, this is Amer-
ica. They are allowed to come in and work
for so many months and go home. And I
think they should be allowed to. Because
there's nonsense in that that people say they
are taking jobs from their children. What
child is going to go out and work in them
fields? Tell me the truth.

I'm calling in reference to the person that
wrote in last week about the Suwannee De-
mocrat reporting so many accidents stating
they were like "Joe the-car wreck reporter."
We should worry more about why there's no
:skating rinks or dance halls for the youths to
go to at night then alls they have to do is dri-
ve on the roads at nighttime. We should also
worry about due to Florida statutes why it's
so difficult to hold an alcohol vendor liable
for allowing drunk drivers to drive. And
maybe if we worry about these items and
why there are so many accidents then there
won't be so many accidents to report for the
Suwannee Democrat.

Luckily for North Florida CSA farms have


been successfully conducting business tor
years. You can learn about them by contact-
ing our local and surrounding county agents,
farmers' markets and web pages who pro-
mote CSA farming.

SIt's about Suwannee County roads.
Suwannee County roads: there is so much
garbage on these roads we must have more
pigs in Suwannee County than we do chik-
ens. I mean it seriously. People thrpw
,garbage out the window. I followed people
throwing stuff out the windows; paper cups,
Wal-Mart bags, you name it. You know it
don't all blow out of pick up trucks on the
way to the dump. There's just really pigs in
this county. It's about time something, is
done about it. I don't know what we can-do,
but something has to be done. The roadsare
horrible with garbage, unbelievable. County
take a ride sometime and just look at al the
trash on the roads. Get them prisoners out of
jail. Put their butts to work on the roads
picking up garbage and crap.

Will President Obama be the first ... and
only ... president who actually gets the fed-
erally-approved PONZI schemes, Socia Se-
curity, Medicare, Medicaid and the Persion
Benefit Guaranty Corporation actuarially
sound??? He's also limiting pay of some, of
his staff, prohibiting lobbying of them while
he's.in office, and expanding the release of
information under the Freedom of Inforna-
tion Act of 1970. I'd like to live to see it-: If
he keeps this up, I'll call him a conservative
and probably vote him in for a second,term
... as long as he doesn't;mess,.with the Ind
amendment!

Callers to 208-8314 may express tbeir
thoughts, good or bad, 24/7 about commnni-
ty issues and politics, but not about private
individuals or businesses. If you prefer,, you

honor will be announced
today. We'll post the results
online at suwanneedemoc-
rat.com, and in our
Wednesday, Jan. 28 print
edition.
The individual winners
are:

Annette Chauncey
Suwannee Middle School
Eighth grade
physical science
Chauncey began her ca-
reer in 1999 as a ninth-
grade world history teacher
in Lake City. She has been
an eighth-grade physical
science teacher at SMS
since 2000. She holds a
Bachelor of Science degree
in social sciences educa-
tion.
"My greatest contribution
to the education of my stu-
dents is the concept of
choice," Chauncey said. I
teach my students that there
are choices to make in life
and that once you make a
choice you have to take re-
sponsibility for that deci-
sion. These are decisions
that can affect them now,
like cheating on a test, or
later like drinking or taking
drugs. Making choices in
life is the tiiggest responsi-
bility each of them ever
have to face."

her teaching career in 1993.

tems technology and med-
ical secretary. She currently
teaches office technology,
medical secretary, employa-
bility skills and desktop
publisher to ninth grade stu-
dents up to adults.
When asked what the
main issue in education to-
day is she responded, "hav-
ing the understanding of
knowing the importance of
basic life management
skills and job skills in order
to become a productive citi-
zen."

'Iraci Green
Suwannee High School
Grades 9-12
Green started teaching in
2000 and holds a bachelor
of arts in communication
sciences and
disorders/speech pathology.
She holds a reading and
English for speakers of oth-
er languages (ESOL) en-
dorsement.
"My greatest contribution
to the education of my stu-
dents is the caring atmos-
phere I provide in my class-
room," Green. said. "In
teaching intensive leveled
students, especially at the
high school level, the most
important role is to first
show my students that I
care for them. The level of
frustration for.these stu-
dents at this point is some-
times overwhelming."

Judy Jacobsen
Suwannee Intermediate
School Fourth grade
Jacobsen began her ca-
reer in 1967 in Alachua
County. She has been
teaching in Suwannee
County since 1998. She
holds a Bachelor of Science
degree. Jacobsen said her


greatest contribution to the
education system is experi-
ence. Jacobsen has "taught
in various educational envi-
ronments; rural Florida
schools, economically dis-
advantaged schools, diverse
socio-economic student
population schools (Depart-
ment of Defense), economi-
cally disadvantaged chil-
dren and gifted children
which combined have given
me a love of teaching," she
said.

Stephanie Knighton
Branford Elementary

reerin Lake City in 1996.
She has been teaching in
Suwannee County since
1999. Knighton holds a
Bachelor of Science degree
in elementary education.
She holds an ESOL en-
dorsement.
"The greatest contribu-
tion that I make to my stu-
dents is that in our class- .
room I look at each child as
an individual and help them
to feel proud of all accom-
plishments whether great or
small," Knighton said. "In
our classroom I strive to
make it a fun, creative
learning environment where
all feel accepted and have
the ability to learn not only
academic but life lessons as
well."

Connie Leavitt
Suwannee Elementary
School.Third grade
Leavitt began teaching in
2000 and holds a Bachelor
of Arts degree in specific
learning disabilities.
"My greatest contribution
to the education of my stu-
dents is the ability to adapt
to my students, as opposed
to making them adapt to
me. Each year is different
and full of surprises," Leav-.
itt said. "Therefore, in the
beginning of the year, I
spend a large amount of
time getting to know the


strengths and weaknesses
of each student. When this
task is completed, and only
when this task is complet-
ed, can the learning begin."

Linda Whitley
Branford High School

ley holds a Bachelor of Sci-

"I think that my greatest
contribution to my students
is being able to teach each
student at his or her acade-
mic ability level," Whitley
said. "I differentiate instruc-
tion at all levels in order to
ensure that students are
working on their instruc-
tional level and not at a
frustration level. I believe
that every child has the
right to experience suc-
cess."

Jennifer Wooley

School First grade
Wooley began teaching
in 2002. Wooley holds a
Bachelor of Science degree
in elementary education.
She also holds an ESOL en-
dorsement and a certificate
in exceptional student edu-
cation.
"My greatest contribution
to the education of my stu-
dents is my ability to effec-
tively teach different learn-
ing styles," Wooley said.
"Not every child can learn
from just listening. Chil-
dren need information pre-
sented in multiple ways. I
.vary my instructional strate-
gies and use whatever
means necessary to ensure
my students' success. If
nothing else works, I will
dance around the class-
room, sing or play cha-
rades."

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT



The office of vital statistics


By Felicia Manning, staff assistant
Suwannee County Health Department

At the Suwannee County Health De-
partment, the Office of Vital Statistics
provides services that many people are
not aware of. We receive calls daily from
clients that do not realize they can obtain
their Florida Birth Certificate through
our office.
Here are some of the services the Of-
fice of Vital Statistics provides:
We provide Certified copies of Birth
Certificates to people born in the State of


Florida between the years 1930-the pre-
sent. The applicant themselves or a par-
ent/legal guardian with power of attorney
can obtain the certificate. (Please call for
any other inquiries).
If you were born in another state, we
can provide the address, telephone num-
ber and website of that state.
If you need to make an amendment or
add the Baby's father's name, we supply
the needed forms to send off to Jack-
sonville (State Office of Vital Statistics).
We provide Death Certificates for peo-

River stock


dog trials

The Suwannee River Stock dog trials
will be held locally at the 'Culleymont in
Dixie' farm on Highway 349 in the north-
east corner of Dixie County, on Jan. 31,
Feb. 1 and 2. This will be the second
stock dog trials to be held at the farm in
Dixie County.
For hundreds of years, stock dog trials
have been held in Scotland and England
where sheep dogs, primarily Border Col-
lies and their handlers exhibit their skills
in handling sheep through an assigned
obstacle course. A trial is designed to test
all the skills a good ranch or farm dog
needs to perform its daily work. To reach
the level of training and skill required to
successfully compete in a trial, takes
years of work on the part of the dog and
the handler.
The team effort is demonstrated as the
partners (handlers and dogs) not only un-
derstand each other perfectly but out-
guess and outwit unfamiliar sheep as they
entice them through the obstacle course.
Spectators always enjoy watching these
fascinating dogs compete while under to-
tal control at distances of 260 to 500
yards:through obstacle after obstacle. The
idea is for the dog, with'the assistance of
the handler controlling it by voice or

or make whatever move needed to move
these three sheep through the course.
The handler stays at the post to com-
mand the dog through the ten minutes al-
lotted until he reaches the pen when he:
can leave the post t6 help the dog. The
ultimate result is to put the sheep through

TAX TIP

Child Tax Credit
Depending on your income and the age of your children, you could score
a hefty income tax credit and possibly earn a tax refund. In 2008, more
lower-income workers will qualify for a larger refundable tax credit.

Credit worth as much as $1,000 per child

If you have children who are under age 17 at of the end of 2008, you can
get a $1,000 tax credit per child on your tax return. A tax credit reduces
your tax bill dollar for dollar, so three qualifying children, for example, can
cut what you owe Uncle Sam by $3,000. The credit may be limited.

And the credit does not affect the exemptions you take for dependents --
worth $3,500 apiece in 2008. The child tax credit is in addition to your
exemptions.


the course in a quiet and controlled man-
ner causing the sheep very little anxiety.
Gripping or biting the sheep in any way
results in immediate disqualification.
These trials are qualifying trials for the
United States Border Collie Handlers:
Association National Finals and the
Georgia Stock Dog Association Finals.
The Open or highest level of classes is
held on Saturday and Sunday. Younger'
dogs will compete in the lower level
classes on Monday. A United States Bor-
der Collie Assoc. Nursery class will also
be held on each of the three days of com-
petition. The judges for these will be
Tom Lacy from Richmond, Virginia, and
Jim Murphy form Portland, Ontario
Canada.
Competitors are expected from several
states with many of the competitors com-
ing from Florida and Georgia. Fred
Moses, a local dairyman from Branford
will be one of the competitors. Some of
the dogs competing were imported from
Scottland, Wales, Ireland and/or England.
Among the competitors are our own
Richard and Cheryl Jagger Williams from
'Culleymont at Dixie' farm where they
raise and train their own Border collies.
Cheryl and Richard are presently nation-
ally ranked in the top ten in the U.S. Bor-


der Collie Handlers Association. One of
the dogs Cheryl will be running in the
open competition is named Spot. Spot
was imported from Ireland and was
ranked eighth in the country last year.
Spot also won the Northeast Border Col-
lie Association Finals. Richard will be
running Lass who won the Northeast
Border Handler's Association's High
Points awards for 2007.
Sheepdog trialing and herding in gen-
eral is one of the fastest growing sports
in the dog world today. Trials are spring-..
ing up all over the country with more and
more people competing. The sport can be
equally enjoyed by the old or young, man
or woman, from any walk of life whatev-
er their profession.
The Border Collie is the thoroughbred
of the herding dogs and the dog most of-
ten seen competing at the large herding
trials though the trials are open to any
breed of dog. The Border Collie is entire-
ly bred for its intelligence and their herd-
ing ability. The fact that many of these
dogs are also pretty is purely incidental.
They truly are a marvel to watch and will
be enjoyed by the whole family.

day! Call: 352-542-0347for more infor-
mation.

his home Tuesday morn-
ing. Nicky Tsacrios, 86,
died in his sleep.
Those who knew Tsac-
rios, knew him as a great
athlete and a kind person.
"Nicky was a great foot-
ball, basketball and soccer
player, he was a natural
athlete," Tom Daniels
said. "I knew Nicky for 30
years and the more I knew
him the more I liked him
as time went on."
Tsacrios, a 1937 All-
American, was inducted
into the local hall of fame
in 1988.
"He was very proud of
his accomplishments and
what a lot of people don't
know is how great a foot-
ball player he was,"
Daniels said.
Daniels said Tsacrios
was an avid walker who
always made time for
friends. "He was the type
of guy that would walk
across the street and shake
your hand," said Daniels.
"A genuinely nice fellow."
Friend Jack Garrett
agreed.
"He'd holler at you go-
ing down the street," Gar-
rett said. "He always.had a
story to tell of what he
heard or just what's going
on."
Garrett knew Tsacrios
for about 40 years. Tsac-
rios was company com-
magder in the National
Guard unit in which Gar-
rett served.
. "he was a happy-go-
lucky sort of guy," Garrett
said. "He was the type of
person that always was
ready to help or listen to
your complaints."
Tsacrios was quite the
entrepreneur. He and his
wife Edna owned and
managed a restaurant in
the current location of
Helvenston and Son's In-
surance on the corner of
Howard and Ohio Street.
They also owned a coin
operated laundry that Gar-
rett said was the first one
in Live Oak that he could
remember.
Wayne Wilson, who
thought of Tsacrios as a
big brother and mentor,
said his friend would be
missed.
"He was a good, honest
man and I just hate to
have to see him gone,"
Wilson said.
Wilson, who played
football at Suwannee High
School in the early 50s,
met Tsacrios on the foot-
ball field, where Tsacrios
was a referee. Wilson said
that Tsacrios taught him
the basics of football and
will be remembered for
his kindness.
"I was an old poor boy
and he gave me a'tie and
showed me how to tie it,
and I never forgot that,"
Wilson said. "He really
took care of me."
"He was a diehard
Gator fan," said longtime
friend Jimmy Jones.
Jones served under
Tsacrios in the National
Guard for about four
years. They worked to-
gether at North Florida
Telephone Company for


about 27 years. They also
played golf together every
chance they could get.
"Nicky was a compas-
sionate person who loved
to play golf and have peo-
ple around him," said
Jones. "He'll be missed by
his friends and family."
Jones said Tsacrios was
a running back in the
1938-39 era and quite pos-
sibly the best SHS has,
ever seen.


an investigative report
from the state attorney's
office, Moreno and Elliott
had a verbal confrontation
that turned physical at El-
liott's home between Aug.
16 and 17, 2008 from
about 11:45 p.m. to 12:30
a.m.
The reports variously al-
lege that during the inci-
dent Moreno had her in a
"headlock" and then
"pushed" or "shoved" El-
liott in the bathroom and
that he later "twisted her
wrist" to take from her
hand a phone she was us-
ing to record his behavior.
During the incident Elliott
tried to call for help but
Moreno prevented her
from doing so, the reports
state. She later tried to run
from Moren6 but he pulled
her back, according to the
reports.
Elliott attempted to call
dispatch from Moreno's
patrol car but Moreno re-
portedly took the cord out
of her hand. She later
reached a phone and called
Chief Buddy Williams.
"When I got there Erica
was crying profusely,"
Williams testified at the


hearing.
LOPD Captain Joe Daly
was also at the scene that
night.
Daly testified that
Moreno had taken Elliott's
cell phone and damaged it,
and when she tried to use
Moreno's police radio to
call for help he ripped it
out of the car. Both
Williams and Daly testi-
fied that Elliott told them
Moreno tried to choke her
with the radio cord.
At the hearing, Elliott
denied telling Williams or
Daly that Moreno tried to
choke her with the radio
cord.
Moreno also testified he
did not try to choke Elliott
with the cord. He said he
was attempting to take the
cord out of her hand when
he lost his grip and fell.
Elliott also disputed por-
tions of reports written by
LOPD investigator Ron
Shaw and state attorney's
investigator Lisa Long. El-
liott testified Tuesday that
Shaw incorrectly charac-
terized the term "head-
lock" in his report.
"I believe it was inter-
preted differently than our


conversation," Elliott said.
"His hand was on my
shoulder, it was nowhere
by my neck."
Elliott also denied
telling Long that Moreno
twisted her wrist to get the
phone.
"I told her he rolled the
phone out of my hand,"
Elliott said. "He twisted
the phone but not my
wrist."
Elliott testified Tuesday
that she was not seeking
help when she called
Williams, but rather want-
ed Williams to give
Moreno a ride home be-
cause he had been drink-
ing.
"I wasn't afraid he was
going to hurt me," she
said.
Moreno testified that El-
liott hid his keys because
she didn't want him to dri-
ve home and that he took
her cell phone to get his
keys back.
"I just wanted my car
keys to go home," he said.
Moreno said that he
placed his hands on El-
liott's shoulders in order to
move her out of the way to
get out of the bathroom..


The floor was slippery and
she slipped and fell, he
said.
"I never pushed her with
my hands and arms," he
testified.
Elliott said there were
inaccuracies in investiga-
tive reports of the incident
because she left out parts
of the story. She also said
the altercation occurred
because she provoked
Moreno by trying to bite
him, shove him and call
him names.
"So is it your testimony
that you are as much at
fault for this incident as he
is?" Rob Larkin, the city's
labor law attorney, asked.
"Possibly, yes," she an-
swered. "My focus was on
Mr. Moreno, not my ac-
tions."
Moreno's attorney, Rick
Schutte, described the inci-
dent as a "normal husband
and wife, boyfriend and
girlfriend spat" during his
opening statement.
"There was no indica-
tion of domestic violence,"
Schutte said.
When Larkin asked
Williams to describe
Moreno as an officer,


Williams said, "He was a
dream come true."
Schutte presented nu-
merous service awards
given to Moreno during
his time at LOPD.
Williams described the
day he fired Moreno as
"the worst day of my life."
An LOPD investigation
determined that Moreno
violated city policy and he
was terminated Sept. 22,
2008. Moreno is not draw-
ing a salary from the city,
but remains an LOPD em-
ployee pending completion
of his appeal, Williams
said.
An investigation by the
state attorney's office was
also conducted and
Moreno was given the op-
portunity to participate in
a pre-trial intervention
program rather than face
criminal charges.
Retired Circuit Judge
Tom Kennon, who served
as the hearing officer for
the proceedings, will is-
sue a written recommen-
dation to the city council,
which will decide
whether Moreno will re-
sume employment with
LOPD.

for the next two years is dismal,"
Taylor said in his presentation.
"The district faces many chal-
lenges; however, the ability to re-
main solvent is the paramount
concern."
State legislators cut $2.8 billion
from the state budget during a re-
cent special session. Education


was hit hard with a $480 million
reduction. Suwannee's share will
be about $1.5 million. The district
has already faced several cuts to-
taling about $3 million.
Taylor said the district could
not absorb future cuts. Suwannee
was forced to leave 40 instruc-
tional positions vacant at the be-
ginning of the 2008-09 school
year. This, noted Taylor, made the


district non-compliant with class-
size reduction requirements.
"Suwannee District Schools,
much like the rest of Florida's
districts, is facing challenges that
will, without a doubt, be insur-
mountable," said Taylor: "Realiz-
ing that Suwannee's current year
fund balance is already less than
five percent, any further reduc-
tions and/or transfers due to class


size noncompliance penalties,
will be most devastating. All leg-
islators need to realize that addi-
tional funding reductions will be
crippling. The district will defi-
nitely have a declining fund bal-
ance at June 30, 2009. It is possi-
ble that the entire fund balance
could be eroded. Consequently,
additional reductions are simply
not sustainable."

SMS wrestlers dominate



Bear Claw Classic


By John Cone
The Suwannee Middle School wrestling
team traveled to River Springs Middle
School Jan. 10 to participate in the multi-
team Bear Claw Classic wrestling tourna-
ment. The annual tournament, held in
Crawfordville, featured teams from the


Florida panhandle, Jacksonville, Lake City,
Wakulla and Cairo and Bainbridge, Ga.
The 'Pups registered their most dominating
performance of the season. After narrowly
finishing second in the Falcon Invitational
and the Cougar Growl Invitational held in
December, the team finally brought home


the first place trophy for SMS. The tourna-
ment was the team's first post-holiday
competition, and served as a tune up for the
North Florida Championships held later in
January.

You could have left Live
Oak after WW II come back
60 years later, asked about
Nicky and every native over
the age of 30 would know
who you were talking about.
You certainly have gained
notoriety when you are
simply known by your first
name. Make no mistake,
Nicky wasn't a character, he
was a gentlemen. As a
generation or two viewed
baseball great Joe DiMaggio
as r. Coffee, a generation or
twoviewed Nicky as the
telephone company man.
Nicky had outlived a lot of his
athletic fame. Nicky was a
gregt athlete.
Iicky's parents, Mike and
Mrs" Mike, operated a
restaurant, Mike's, located
somehow between the Sports
Connection and Judge
Slaughters'building;.'. -"
Growing up the child of
Greek immigrants in very
rural Live Oak pre depression
Florida is probably a story in
itself. Nicky was blessed,
however, with the universal
language of acceptance great
athletic ability. He was a high
school All American at
Suwannee High. He was the
first member of the Suwannee
High School Hall of Fame.
Nicky starred for the
University of Florida in the
early 40s and was a member
of the Gator Letterman's
Club. He also served as a
football official for many
years.
On a personal note, I
played golf with Nicky and
had many pleasant
conversations with him.
Nicky would cross the street
to shake your hand. I
refurbished a championship
trophy for him and every year
he would stop by to ask "How
are the Bulldogs going to do
this year?" He liked to tell me
the story of playing a high
school football team from
Nutley, New Jersey: "They
traveled all the way to Florida
by train to play us in a bowl
game, what an adventure."
IMy parents were married in
Nutlry. Small world. Nicky
helped in putting his
teanimate and college All
American Bobby Nelson in
the local Hall of Fame.

Boys, 7 come 11, those were
our numbers and we were a
pretty good pair of running
backs," he said. Someone told

The 2008-09 Suwannee Parks & Recreation and Po-

the Junior Division Championship game between the
Pistons and the Suns.

Pee Wee Division Championship Game
The Bulls, coached by Jerry Alexander, capped off
their season by defeating the Pistons in the champi-
onship game by a score of 31-15. The Bulls were led by

Fans asked to support JV basketball team


Submitted
The SHS junior varsity boys
basketball team is finding a
way to win games, with an
overall record of 10-5. Fans
are encouraged to come out
and support them in the re-


maining seven games of their
season; five scheduled at
home.
The team was off to a slow
start with a new coach selected
just a week before the season
opener. The team lost its first


four games played, still in the
process of getting in shape,
learning new plays, and learn-
ing how to play with each oth-
er. However, since that time
they have won all but one
game, a difficult loss to Madi-


son which went into double
overtime and was played away
in front of a hostile crowd.
The JV 'Dogs face some of
their toughest opponents in the
closing seven games of their
season, which should be a true


test of their ability. This Thurs-
day night at home they face
district rival Santa Fe, by
whose hands they suffered a
12 point loss back in early De-

and #2 Tyree Dominique
scored seven points for the
Bulls.
The Pistons, coached by
Nate Nelson, were led by
Darious Herring, who
scored 11 of the Bulls 15
points. Terrec Smiley and
Frederick Williams both
contributed two points for
the Pistons. The Pistons,
who were the fourth seed,
defeated the number one
seeded Suns in'a thrilling
playoff game on Jan. 15 to
advance to Friday's Cham-.
pionship Game.

Junior Division Champi-
onship Game
Upon the conclusion of
'the Pee Wee Champi-
onship Game, the Junior
Division Championship
game tipped off, and
proved to be an exciting
game for the fans in atten-
dance. The Pistons,
coached by Terrence
Humphrey, completed an
undefeated season by de-
feating the Suns, coached
by Nate Nelson, by a score
of 40-36.
- The Pistons were led by
#3, Antyone Gibbons,
who scored 12 points and
#9, Tyler Butts and #7,
Makai Hines, who each
contributed eight points in
the winning effort.
The Suns were led by
#5, Jarvis Johnson, who
led all scorers with 22
points.
The Pistonstrailed for
much of the game, and
were down four points go-
ing into the fourth.quarter.
Number 1, Otto Morales,
sunk four free throws and
#3 Antyone Gibbons
scored seven of his 12
points in the final quarter
to push the Pistons to vic-
tory.

This season, Suwannee


Parks and Recreation part-
nered with the Police Ath-
letic League for their bas-
ketball program. The part-
nership was a success, re-
sulting in an increase in
participation for the youth
basketball program.
.Through their partnership,
Suwannee Parks and
Recreation and the Police
Athletic League were able
to provide an increase in
the number of games
teams were able to play by
playing games at both the
Suwannee County Colise-
um and the Douglass Cen-
ter.
By having access to
both facilities, more time
was provided to the play-
ers and coaches for prac-
tices and games. Giving
the coaches and players
extra time to learn the
game and hone their skills
really paid off.
The players and coaches
worked very hard during
the course of the season,
they exhibited a great level
of sportsmanship, and you
could tell they really en-
joyed being out on the
court.


Suwannee wrestlers going undefeated on
the day and earning first place medals were:
Hunter Cason (90 lbs.), Jacob Wainwright
(95 lbs.), Shawn Brown (119 lbs.), Timothy
Branham (130 lbs.), Ricky Lanier (140
lbs.), Logan Fletcher, Most Outstanding *
Wrestler (145 lbs.), Jerry Willis (215 lbs.)
and Frank Smith (hvy).
Suwannee second place finishers included:
Scott Bucsok (75 lbs.) and Keegan Mathis


(103 lbs.). The lone third place medalist was
Allen Foster (160 lbs.). Dallas
Ogburn (135 lbs.) and Darius
Price-Jones (125 lbs.) rounded out the
Suwannee medalists, each earning fourth
place finishes.
The team will wrestle in its conference
tournament later this month. See a future edi-
tion of the Democrat for stats and informa-
tion.

home), Middleburg (away), and Columbia (at home).
Four of the seven remaining games are district rivals,
and Madison is on the third day of a three-in-a-row
game schedule.
The team's success has been a combination of several
factors, including teamwork and conditioning. Turnovers
and missed layups have been areas where improvement
is still needed, but overall speed and determination have
helped offset these mistakes. In their recent win against
Ridgeview 60-43, five players had one or more assists,
three players had two or more steals, and four players
had five or more rebounds. Over the last three games the

Life in Abundance


Life often seems to alternate between abundance and scarcity.
Sometimes there is too much rain, and at other times, not enough.
Before addressing how to create more abundance in our lives, we
ll should first ask whether we should want more abundance, and if
so, what kind. It is possible to have an abundance of bad things or
SI even too much of a good thing. The promotion at work that
comes with a raise in pay may also come with so many
headaches that we find our self wanting our old job
E- back. Sometimes the quickest route to a life of
abundant joy is to simplify our life and get
Si i rid of some of our material possessions.
-r Wisdom warns that material things can
i be "golden shackles" that tie us
S -down and make us miserable.
So, how do we attract
S- a i positive abundance in our
lives? Trust in God's
S- goodness, but also work hard
S I _and work smart. Live simply,
and live within, or even
better, under our means.
Save something from every
paycheck, but also be sure
to be generous, giving to
"" I charity, to our church, and to
those less fortunate than us.
Paradoxically, those who give the
most seem to attract the most

Streets and wheat in the fields, and
God wants us to both live and to give
abundantly.

And God is able to provide you with every blessing in *
abundance, so that you may always have enough of everything
and may provide in abundance for every good work.
R.S.V. 2 Corinthians 9:8

Being blessed


Heart Matters
By Angie Land

Bless you! In the south you
can pretty much count on hear-
ing that phrase if you happen
to sneeze in public. We bless
lots of things down here: our
food at mealtime, we have
wall hangings to bless our
homes, you can even criticize
someone if you properly bless
him or her first: "Bless her
heart... she is having a bad hair*
day!" Why, I have even heard
of someone confronting anoth-
er and calling it "blessing them
out!" Makes you wonder how
"blessed" they felt after it was


over; where does all this come
from?
In the Middle Ages it was
believed that a person's heart
stops when they sneeze, so the
phrase "bless you" was meant
to ensure the return of life or
to encourage their heart to
continue beating. Webster's
Dictionary defines the word
bless as to "invoke divine care
for: to wish prosperity or hap-
piness upon." I guess it would
be considered prosperous for
your heart to keep beating;
probably make you pretty hap-
py too!
The Bible has a lot to say
about being blessed. In fact,
the Hebrew word for blessed
in the Old Testament actually
means "happy". Since happi-
ness is something we all spend
our lives looking for, it would
be worth our effort to hear
what the Bible says makes us
blessed. Psalm 1:1-2 says this:
"Blessed is the man who
does not walk in the counsel of
the ungodly or stand in the
way of sinners or sit in the seat
of mockers. But his delight is
in the law of the Lord and on
His law he meditates day and


night."
These verses begin by
telling us what not to do in or-
der to be happy: first of all, we
are not to walk in the counsel
of the ungodly. An ungodly
person is one who does not
fear or respect God, and we
are instructed to be careful not
to take advice nor be influ-
enced by those who make their
life choices "looking out for
number one." "Standing in the
way of sinners" refers to plac-
ing yourself among those.who
know they are doing wrong
and have every intention of
continuing what they are do-
ing. If we stay in their compa-
ny very long, we risk losing
our perspective that what they.
are doing is wrong and find
ourselves joining in. This is a
short step away from "sitting
in the seat of mockers". We
get comfortable and move
right in with them, no longer
just following their lead, but
now encouraging others to fol-
low ours. Honestly, I believe
no one sitting in the mocker'ss
seat" made that the goal. So
how do we get there? We ar-
rive by not having God's stan-


dard to live by; a solid base to
determine our life decisions
when we are being pushed and
pulled in every direction.
God gives us the answer
over in the second part of this
verse, to find our delight in
His Word. Hear it, read it and
ponder it until we know how
to make right decisions. Hav-
ing a standard to live by makes
the way and the decisions
clearer, although not always
easier. It does however, bring
relief, peace, and happiness:
makes us blessed, like our
hearts continuing to beat after
a sneeze; after all they really
do matter!

Blessings, Angie

New Year, New President, Same Old Problems


By Rev. James L. Snyder

Some people might categorize me as a
skeptic. Maybe I am but I am in agree-
ment with good old Benjamin Franklin
who reputedly said, "Don't believe any-
thing you hear and only half of what you
see." This philosophy was probably a re-
sult of inventing the bifocals.
My personal history has shown that
every time I get my hopes up they are
soundly dashed to the ground in disap-
pointment. I often refer to myself as an
optimistic-pessimist; I know for sure
things are going to go wrong. And, I am
rarely disappointed in that aspect of life.
The month of January represents tc
man\ people'a-twholep-ot-fnmcwhiogs-
For one it is a lrand-ne year never yet
lived, therefore there is an awful lot of
hope among many people. Some people
have the idea that some kind of magic
takes place between the last day of the old
year and the first day of the New Year.
With this comes an expectation that things
will be different this year.'
The only difference between Dec. 31
and Jan. 1 is sleep deprivation resulting in
somebody dropping the ball. This may ac-
count for all the high hopes and the New
Year's resolutions people entertain.
:Personally, I do not know'what all the
hullabaloo is all about. Every 12 months,


without fail, we have a day called New
Year's Day. It is hard to know how many
thousands of New Year's Day has already
taken place. This we do know, there are
12 days in the calendar year numbered
one. Like all the other months, January
has the first day. Why people think this is
any different than any other day is beyond
anybody's imagination.
And then this year we have a new presi-
dent. Again, people are touting high hopes
that this president will be different from
all the other presidents before us. This is
the 44th president that has presided over
these United States of America.
There is nothing really special about a
new president. Like clockwork, even
four-ear;a t.,w n~ .sidcnt*assumes-tba
highest office in the land offering to
change things. Usually, the inference is
that they are going to change things for'
the better. Sometimes they do... some-
times they don't. But everybody believes
somehow a new president will change
things for the better. Moreover, politicians
say it so convincingly during the cam-
paign that some are tempted to believe
they actually believe what they are say-
ing.
A politician can say anything he thinks
the people want to hear him say. The only
thing he or she cannot say is, "I was
wrongg" And for good reason. If a politi-
cian would ever utter those
three words, the whole
world would cave in on us.
They have our well-being
S in mind. We thank them for
that.
What many people forget
is that a president is a
politician, for better or for
worse, and we are married
to him for the next four


years or possibly eight years.
Our new president aspires to be like
Abraham Lincoln. He took his oath of of-
fice on Abraham Lincoln's Bible. This
gives me some pause for concern. Abra-
ham Lincoln grew a beard and sported a
stovetop hat. I am trying to picture our
new president s6 attired.
I think it is all right to look up to great
men as our pattern. However, we should
respect those of the past and allow them
to rest peacefully in their graves. Each
president should find his own stride and
be his own man... or as much of a man as
lobbyists will allow.
I am happy with bur president modeling
himself after Abraham Lincoln; I only
ave -one piece of advice. Shy away from
Thespian entertainment;
The greatness of America is that it has
survived so many politicians.
But even though there are many things
new there still remains old problems.
Anybody who would review history, even
if you look at our country, most, if not all'
problems are rooted in two areas.
The first area is money, or filthy lucre.
Some have too much money. Some do
not have enough money and what they do
have they cannot hang onto. And some....
want more money no matter how much
money they have at the time. They could
have millions of dollars but still that one
little word "more," answers on their lips
every day of their life.
If money could bring happiness, there
would be a whole lot of happy people in
the world. The trouble is money brings
trouble. Some people will do anything
and everything but honest work to reach
their goal of getting more money.

Today

David H. Matier
Doctor of Pastoral Counseling


The hymn,
"Brethren We
Have Met To
Worship," pro-
vides powerful
motivation to
get the job
done. The sec-
ond verse says,
"Death is com-
ing, Hell is


moving can you bear to let them go?
See our fathers and our mothers and
our children sinking down." Oh, that
we might get concerned!
You see, today those who attend
church have it pretty good. Christians
say, "Me and mine are all OK" and'
couldn't be less concerned about oth-
ers. You probably live in a reasonably
good house, drive a late model car,
have enough to eat etc. (by the rest of
the world's standards anyone reading
these words is RICH). So since every-
thing is "A OK" you sit back in your
Lazy Boy, prop up your feet and begin
to channel surf.
Most Christians very seldom ried
their Bibles (especially those who
leave their Bibles in the church pew
from Sunday to Sunday). Many use
them for a decoration on the dash'of
their car or truck; never taking their"
Bible into the house after church. In'
public they like to be seen with their
Bible but when no one can see them
they don't bother picking it up.
If you have been relying on "What's
been" you had better be careful. The
status quo could change. God has a
way of shaking you out of your lethar-
gy. "Woe to them that are at ease in'
Zion and trust in the mountain of
Samaria" (Amos 6:1).
Have you ever seen a Christian get
upset because he has family and
friends that are unsaved? I mean'really
get upset. Most Christians get more
upset when they miss a meal than they
do over a lost and dying world! Uiset
enough to read the Bible? Upset '
enough to attend church regularly?
Upset enough to witness to others
h eir need of a Savior? And on
and on e could go. The current mem-
bership of most churches is "at ease in
Zion" today.
Have you ever noticed that the devil
is always hard at work? Christians '
claim to do the work of the Lord, bht,
even with all our church buildings,'
certain cults are a lot more visible. '
Very seldom, if ever, does a Baptist or
a protestant, Methodist, Episcopaliin,
Presbyterian, African MethodistEpis-
- copal etc., show up on your doorstep..
Other than those from your own
church, probably none! That is be-
cause Christians are sitting on their
posterior while the devil and his
hoards keep marching on with no, or
very little, resistance. The devil and'
his crowd are not "at ease in Zioh!"
Today Christians have become'flab-
by. Many use II Thessalonians when
referring to the material/physical
realm (if you don't have any idea asgto
what this verse says you should look it
up).. Have you ever noticed that you
learn more when you are teaching?
Out of necessity you have to study. If
you don't work you won't get the re-
ward for that work. It will take con-
cern and work to win your father and
your mother and your children who
are "sinking down," into an eternal
Hell.
Yes, you have been at ease for to
long. It is time to be a witness (both
through word & deed) to your family,
your church, your employer, etc. You
need to be an example TODAY of
what God intended a Christian to be.

New Year, New President,


Same Old Problems


Continued From Page 8B

New Year is people. Re-
gardless of the problem
anywhere in the world
there is usually a name at-
tached to it. People cause
more problems than any-
thing and everything else
put together.
If we could get rid of
money and people, we
would have no more prob-
lems. The only trouble


with that is, who would
appreciate that trouble-free
world.
I think King Solomon in
the Old Testament had his
finger upon the whole sit-
uation. "The thing that
hath been, it is that which
shall be; and that which is
done is that which shall be
done: and there is no new
thing under the sun." (Ec-
clesiastes 1:9 KJV).
Trusting in things and


people that change is a
good formula for disap-
pointment.
The Rev. James L. Sny-
der is pastor of the Family
of God Fellowship, 1471
Pine Road, Ocala, FL
34472. He lives with his
wife, Martha, in Silver
SpringsShores. Call him at
