WELLBORN NEWS



Stirring the pot

By Betty Barnes

One of the world's most wonderful ladies is a life-
long resident of Wellborn. She grew up on the north
sidb of Highway 90 near downtown Wellborn. Priscilla
Williamson is well known by the people of Wellborn
for her kindness and for her generous contributions to


her neighbors. Having grown up with nine brothers
and sisters, sharing and giving was a way of life.
In 1925 life was very difficult for her, with no trans-
portation, no school buses only walking with no
paved roads. Priscilla managed to get an education.
She lived with an aunt on Highway 137 North for five
days a week to attend the public school on the corner
of 137 and 136. The school no longer exists.
Later, Priscilla went to live in Clearwater, Florida.
While living in Clearwater, she worked for different
people in their homes. One of the people she worked
for was Mr. Jack Eckerd. She helped to prepare food
for a lot of events for Mr. Eckerd. Priscilla had a say-
ing, "If you 'stirred the pots' for Mr. Eckerd you could
accomplish anything." Missing her parents and family
was so great that she moved back to Wellborn.
I met Priscilla when she joined the Wellborn Com-
munity Association. She,served on the board for a
number of years. When asked if she could cook a cer-
.tain dish or prepare a special food, she always replied,
"I 'stirred the pots' for Mr. Eckerd, so I can do it." I
think her specialty was sweet potato pie it was to
die. for. It was the best I have ever tasted.
Working in the small town of Wellborn was easy for
her. She knew everyone and where they lived. The
Community Association prepared meals for the sick
and shut-ins, and Priscilla delivered most of them.


Being a big part of the Blueberry Festival, she made a
lot of blueberry pies. I asked her if she could run the
Blueberry Country Store. She said to me, "I stirred the
pots for Mr. Eckerd, I can," and she did a great job.
At Christmas time, stockings were hand made and
stuffed for kids in our little town. Priscilla made and
delivered more stockings than Santa Claus, I think.
One year, Priscilla was elected "Citizen of the
Year," and led the parade through Wellborn. She was
one great lady! It was an honor to see her so happy to
know that she was appreciated.
Later, when the Neighborhood Watch was started,
she was one of the first to join and began patrolling
the streets of Wellborn. She always had time to stop
and visit. Calling on friends that lived alone, making
sure they were well and safe, was what she did most
days.
In the last two months, Priscilla has moved from her
beloved community to a health care center in Lake
City. It's no longer safe for her to live alone. Every
time I go to Lake City, going by to visit her is some-
thing I look forward to. She has so many friends to gp
by for visits.
Priscilla is one wonderful lady who really cares for
and loves her church, family and friends. On Valen-
tine's Day, she was 84 years of age, a long life for a
sweet lady.

The Pro Arms gun shop, in cooperation with the Live
Oak Police Department and Westwood Christian
School, is offering a four-hour class in the use of the
keychain device called the Persuader, inspired by the
Kubotan self-defense device developed by famed'karate
master Tak Kubota. The device is a plastic wand about
half an inch in diameter and measuring 5.5" in length,
with an attached key ring. (Helps keep you from mis-
i'plaing your keys!)
'.The instructors are fond of saying that "just because
,It's a wand, doesn't mean it's magic." However,-they
will show you how to 'qse it to strike as a mini-police
baton... to slash with a keys like a miniature version of
a Medieval mace... to use it to intensify pressure-point

hold on you... and to apply wrist-lock and thumb-lock
techniques that allow you to bring a strong adult male

Q e Can you tell me the benefits of
using laminate flooring as
opposed to real wood flooring?
po -'. ths e ..ain laminate ring ..
;' ',/"i b.nefits:- cost, ease of installation .and
.ll *durability.. The durability of laminate'
flooring is a benefit that is far superior to real wood
flooring. Laminate flooring is approximately fifteen
times stronger than hardwood flooring and most
come with a 10 or 30 year warranty. This is a
considerable benefit over real wood flooring.
Laminate flooring has the natural look of a genuine
wood floor without the added cost; and the
installation can be relatively simple. Apart trom
these benefits, laminate flooring also has a high UV
resistance which blocks the harmful rays of the sun
and protects the design from fading. This benefit
can save alot of future maintenance that would be
required to keep a real wood floor looking as good
as laminate flooring. For more information contact
the professionals at Live Oak Paint & Flooring.

Love In the Name of
Christ of Suwannee Coun-
ty (Love INC) wishes to
thank several organizations
for their generous support
during 2008. Without their
help we would not have
been able to reach out to
so many families during
the year as well as the hol-
iday seasons.
Publix Supports Love in
the Name of Christ all year
long, enabling us to meet
many of the needs in this
community. We were over-
whelmed at their generosi-
ty of canned goods and
frozen meats during our
Christmas season. The
heart of the employees, lo-
cal management headed up
by Bo Bush, and corporate
support provided Christ-
mas dinners for several
families. In these difficult
times, we could not reach
out like we do without the
support from Publix.
Suwannee Middle
School Student Council
held a canned food drive in
November to support Love
INC. It is great to see that
the children of Suwannee
County are learning to
serve their community and
have compassion for oth-
ers. Their effort has en-
abled Love in the Name of
Christ to assist hundreds of
families since November
and will continue helping
families for several months
to come. They collected a
grand total of 1,767 cans!
We appreciate the ongo-

Girl Scouts make rockets


fly in Live Oak!


Forty-two Girl Scouts in Hamilton and
Suwannee counties gathered in Live Oak
recently for the STEM (Science, Technol-
ogy, Engineering and Mathematics)
Stomp Rocket Launch.
Seven Girl Scout Cadettes from Troops
225 and 130 taught thirty-five Girl Scout
Brownies how to make stomp rockets out
of cardstock and tape and launch them
into the air with PVC rock launchers and
two liter bottles. "It was great to see the
look on the Brownies' faces when their
stomp rocket flew into the air," said Mor-
gan Shattuck of Troop 130 in Wellborn.
The girls learned about volcanoes, as-
teroids, the inside of the earth, the scien-
tific method and Newton's Laws of Mo-


tion all through fun hands-on experi-
ments. "The girl leaders did their own
problem solving and critical thinking,"
said Carrie Kashawlic, Director of Girl
Leadership & Service, Kim Shattuck, Girl
Scouts Volunteer Coordinator from Well-
born, and her daughter Morgan helped
with this event and others around North
Florida after training at NASA.
"My daughter wasn't interested in space
until she experienced this program. The
best part is that it gives the older girls a
chance to teach the younger girls and in-
crease their confidence in themselves,"
said Shattuck. "I'm ecstatic that it's
spreading throughout Florida and the
country."

also take delight in what they mean to
local Girl Scouts, the community and
our future. Through this annual activi-
ty, girls learn how to work together as
a team, set goals, and develop a plan
to reach those goals. Additionally,
Girl Scouts cultivate a sense of busi-
ness ethics, public speaking, and in-
terpersonal communication skills.

get a true sense of the value and re-
wards of their hard work.

Who needs
flowers?
Gardening tips from the
Live Oak Garden Club
By Lucille Bobiney Heinrich

If you enjoy the long-lasting, colorful,
heart-shaped leaves of the caladium, now
is the time to start planning to add these
tropical plants to your garden. Although
there are no flowers to speak of, the fo-
liage puts on a dazzling show all season.
Caladiums are native to Brazil and are
grown for their beautiful foliage. The size
of the heart-shaped leaves may vary from
6 inches to 2 feet in length. The colors
vary from green and white, green and red,
pink and cream, white with red blotches or
green Veins and some have lavender spots.
They like a warm and moist atmosphere
with-a minimum summer temperature of
70 degrees.
In our area, tubers are planted in late
March or April (even tubers planted in
May or June will flourish). Bury the tu-
bers about 2" deep with knobs facing up
in areas that are shaded or only get morn-
ing sun. The tubers will not send out
leaves until the ground has reached a tem-
perature of at least 55 degrees. Some vari-
eties such as "Red Flash" will tolerate
more sun. The beauty of Caladiums is that
during the very heat of summer, July and
August, these hardy plants will add much
color and variety to your garden while
many of your blooming plants find it too
hot to bloom. Caladiums are ideal border
plants, lovely in window boxes/pots and
stunning when planted in a random mix in
beds.
Caladiums grow well with little care or
attention. Fertilize outdoor plants once a
month with a general purpose fertilizer. As
the leaves begin to grow, the plant will
flower. The flower of the caladium looks
like a spike with a hood. It is not consid-
ered very attractive and if allowed to ma-
ture, it will rob the leaves of their vitality.
When you identify the flower, it is best to
snap it off.
In the fall, when the leaves begin to
wither, you can lift the tubers, dry, gently
remove soil, and store in a paper bag in
the house. Second year foliage is usually
not as good as the first year; therefore
more satisfactory results may be obtained
by starting with new tubers each year.
The Live Oak Garden Club is having its
annual caladium bulb sale during the
month of February with delivery at the end
of March. Please contact Ella Carter
(386-362-1326) or Jennie Garner (386-
362-7746) if you wish to place an order

OPINION

We'd rave about

newspapers if they

were invented today
By Ken Paulson
I can understand why newspapers are not viewed as
trendy today. After all, they were really the iPods of
1690.
But humor me, and consider this alternate history:
Imagine if Gutenberg had invented a digital modem
rather than a printing press, and that for centuries all of
our information had come to us online.
Further, imagine if we held a press conference an-
nouncing the invention of an intriguing new product
called the "newspaper."
That press conference might go something like this:
We're pleased to announce-a new product that will
revolutionize the way you access information It will
save you time and money and keep you better informed
than ever before.
Just consider the hours you've spent on the Internet
looking for information of interest to you. We've hired
specialists who live and work in your hometown to cull
information sources and provide a daily report tailored
to your community, your friends and your neighbors.
We also know that you sometimes wonder whether
you can trust the information you see online. We plan to
introduce a painstaking new process called 'fact-check-
ing' in which we.actually verify the information before
we pass it along to you.
In addition to saving time online, you'll also save
money. You won't need those expensive color ink car-
tridges or reams of paper because information will be
printed out for you in-full color every day.
You'll also save money on access charges and those
unpleasant fights over who gets time on the.computer
because this product will be physically delivered to
your home at the same time each day, for less than what
you would tip the guy from Pizza Hut.
You worry about your kids stumbling across porn on
the Internet, but this product is pre-screened and guar-
anteed suitable for the whole family.
And in a security breakthrough, we guarantee news-
papers to be absolutely virus-free, and promise the
elimination df those annoying pop-up ads.
It's also the most portable product in the world, and
doesn't require batteries or electricity. And when the
flight attendant tells you to turn off your electronic de-
vices, you can actually turn this on, opening page after
page without worrying about interfering with the plane's
radar.
To top it all off, you don't need a long-term warranty
or service protection program. If you're not happy with
this product on any day,"we'll redesign it and bring you
a new one the next day.
I can see the headlines now: "Cutting-edge newspa-
pers threaten Google's survival."
My point, of course, is that newspapers remain an ex-
traordinary information bargain, and we shouldn't be
selling them short or lose sight of the qualities that
make American journalism so critical to our democracy.
When we do our jobs as journalists the right way,
when we strive everyday to publish reports of integrity
and balance, when we ask the tough questions, when
we fight to keep the public's business public and when
we provide the kind of thorough and balanced reporting
that is the life blood of a democracy, we fulfill our
promise to that first generation of Americans who be-
lieved that one of the best ways to guarantee a democ-
racy was a free and vigorous press.
There are people counting on us.

Freedom Forum in Washinington, D. C., and the former

ASK DR.MANTOOTi

Q: What's the difference between a
dentist and an oral surgeon?
A: Within the broad field of dentistry are
a number of specialties. Oral surgery is
one of them. The oral surgeon, also
known as a maxilloclal surgeon, has
completed a four-year surgical
residency at a hospital after his four
years of.dental school. The oral surgeon
is trained to diagnose and treat defects,
injuries and diseases of the mouth, jaw,
teeth, neck, gums and other soft tissues
In the head. The oral surgeon also can


do reconstructive surgery on jawbones,
whether it's to correct a bite or to repair
damage done in an accident.
The oral surgeon also can perform
biopsies and remove tumors in the head
and neck area. The most common
reason for a visit to an oral surgeon Is
removal of impacted wisdom teeth,
which are the back molars. Those teeth
sometimes emerge at an angle or don't
erupt fully. They can become infected
and quite painful. This is a situation in
which many dentists will refer a patient
to an oral surgeon. The oral surgeon
many use either local or general
anesthesia to perform the procedure.
Most oral surgeons limit their practice to
their specialty. Talk with your dentist
about this and other specialized areas'
of dental treatment.

the district, officials say.
At the beginning of the
2008-09 school year, 39
teaching positions and
three support personnel
Positions were lost. Addi-
Stional positions have since
Been lost, including at the
administrative level. All
areas of the budget are be-

In an effort to convey
the.depth of the crisis to
the community, the
Suwannee County School
Board, superintendent, dis-
trict staff, and the United
Teachers of Suwannee
SCounty'are scheduled to
host town hall meetings.
These meetings will be
held:


Feb. 26 at Branford

March 5 at Suwannee
Middle School -from 6:30
p.m. until 8 p.m.
School staff, parents,
business leaders, and all
. county residents are re-
quested and urged to at-
tend.
"We need grassroots
support to let our legisla-
ture know that we are con-
cerned about the future ed-
ucation of our children,"
said Scarborough.
Under President 'Oba-
ma's stimulus plan, Florida
should receive more than
$3.5 billion for education,
but the funds may never
arrive. Federal rules -may
block the payment due to
Florida's cuts in education
spending in recent years.
Gov. Charlie Crist will
seek a waiver of that rule.

basketball look



to finish strong

By David Badgerow
SSHS Journalism dept.
SFresh off a strong win
against Madison, the Lady
'Dogs basketball team holds
an air of confidence.
SThe game against Madison
was an important win for the
girls Feb. 7. The top scorers
for this game were Tiyrenee
Riley with 12 points and
eight rebounds and Hope
Chambers with 10 and 13 re-
bounds. Players who also had
strong showings were Lacey
Tooten, Tara Oliver and
Kim Beaty.
SIn reference to this game,
these players said they felt
they had improved their of-
fense the most, and were very
proud to say that their reliable j
defense held strong yet again.
The team's overall record this
year is 5-15, a great improve-
ment over last year's 0-24
season. Contributing factors
to the wins, the players say,
are the leadership shown by
the strongest players and im-
proved communication. This
leads to the team working as
a central unitp:and.it-has paid
off with five wins so far-is --
year.
When asked how they felt
about this season compared to
last season, all the girls agree
that the team is better, more
unified that they're all having
more fup this season. An es-
sential,aspect of this team is
experience. Almost all the
players on the team have up-
wards of ten years experience
and center Hope Chambers
can't even remember when
she first picked up a basket- B_. ''

"We all started rec league at the youngest possi-
ble ages," theladies agreed.
Looking tb the future, the competitive young
women look to a big game on Saturday against ri-
val Santa Fe.
"Santa Fe has a tough team, primarily because
they have a lot of seniors this year," the ladies
said.
SHS has competed against Santa Fe two times
already this season.
s* "One of the hardest parts about playing against
a team like that, with a bunch of seniors, is the
pressure they keep on -us," said key player'Ricto-
ria Merrit. "'They start at tipoff and they don't
stop,'
The Lady 'Dogs will also be looking forward to
district competition on Tuesday, held at Baker
County High School. They are confident that the
team will finish strong and are glad this season
has been more successful than last year.

500 cut short? I guess it
depends where you live. If
you lived anywhere else in
the world than Pebble
Beach you were probably
upset with the 500. Indoor
NASCAR and golf will not
be happening in my
lifetime. But how.much
sympathy can you have for
the car guys, you know
they all just washed them.
If you are suffering from
football depravation the
NFL draft is around the
corer. NFLjunkies will
soon be able to watch the
combines. Combines are
where NFL wannabes run,
jump and lift to increase
their stock. Suwannee's
Bruce lohnson may be
there as one of the top
corners in the nation.
Suwannee still doesn't
have a Classic game on the
schedule but new coach
Jerry Odom begins work
this week. Suwannee

underway, cheapest and
best entertainment in town.
Help the program, eat

State archery tournament


set for Florida's schools


Florida's second annual
National Archery in the
Schools Program state tour-
nament will take place during
the last two weeks of Febru-
ary.
Thirty-five of the 157 par-
ticipating schools from
around the state will compete
in the virtual tournament,
which will allow students to
shoot in their own schools'
gymnasiums and mail in their
scores. t
Last year, 592 youths from
28 schools competed in the
tournament. This year, regis-
tration numbers have topped
750 participants.
"Winning teams will be se-
lected in three grade levels,
with trophies and medals
awarded to the schools and
team members. The highest-
scoring girl and boy in the
tournament each will win a
Mathews-Genesis bow and a
Morrell target," said Steve
Robbins, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission's (FWC) coordinator
for the program.
Last year's winning'teams
were Flagler Palm Coast
High School, Daniel Jenkins
Academy Middle School
(Polk County) and Altha Ele-
mentary School (Calhoun
County).
Florida's program, a coop-
erative effort between the
FWC and the Florida Depart-
ment of Education, teaches-


international-style target
archery in 4th- to 12th-grade
physical education classes.
"Physical education teach-
ers receive eight hours of ba-
sic archery instructor train-
ing, and the students enjoy a
two-week archery component
in their class," Robbins said.
In 2004, Florida became
the 24th state to offer the
training that was developed
by the Kentucky Department
of Education and the Ken-
tucky Department of Fish and
Wildlife Resources.
"The National Safety
Council rates archery more
accident-free than every pop-
ular ball sport, including ten-
nis and golf. Archery enables
students to learn a safe, life-
time skill they can practice
almost anywhere. More than
3.5 million students have par-
tidipated in the program inter-
nationally since its inception
in 2002, and there have been
no accidents," Robbins said.
For more information about
getting local schools involved
in the National Archery in the
Schools Program, contact
Steve Robbins at 386-758-
0525 or
Steven.Robbins@ MyFWC.co
m.
"This is all about the kids,
and who knows? Your child
may possess the talent to be-
come a future Olympic
archery champion," Robbins
said with a grin.

ation at both greenways and trails
also pays off in economic benefits.
According to a report by the Outdoor
Industry Foundation, three out of
every four Americans participate in
active outdoor recreation each year.
The study states that outdoor recre-
ation contributes $730 billion annu-
ally to the U.S. economy, supports
nearly 6.5 million jobs across the
,U.S. and provides sustainable growth
in communities. To view the Foun-

DEP's OGT has taken a lead role
in working to establish a statewide
system of greenways and trails and
entered into partnerships of many
forms to accomplish its legislative
mandate. The DEP's Office of
Greenways & Trails manages eight
state trails, in addition to the Mar-
jorie Harris Carr Cross Florida
Greenway. The Greenway is Flori-
da's longest green corridor stretching
110 miles from the St. Johns River
near Palatka to the Gulf of Mexico'
near Inglis. Of the eight state trails,
six are rail-trails, which, are railroad

recognition for its commitment to fa-
cilitating an outstanding statewide
system of trails. Honored for its vi-

.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announces availability of

five-year staus review for 11mobile river basin Mussels


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced today
the availability of its five-year status review of 11 Mo-
-.,bile RiverBasin mussels, occurring in Alabama, Georgia,
,Mississippi and Tennessee.
Five-year reviews are conducted.to ensure that a listing
classification
Sunder the Endangered Species Act (ESA) is accurate.
This five-year review summarizes all available scientific
and commercial information for these 11 mussels since
they were protected under the ESA in 1993 and provides
recommendations reflecting the current status of each
species.
The 11 mussel'species include the fine lined pocket-
book, orange-nacre mucket, and.Alabama moccasinshell
listed as threatened; phis the Coosa moccasinshell, south-
- "'ern clubshell, dark pigtoe, southern pigtoe, ovate club-
'. shell, triangular kidneyshell, upland combshell, and
southern acornshell, all listed as endangered.
SThe mussels' five-year review recommends the status.
,of the Coosa
moccasinshell and dark pigtoe as endangered remain
unchanged. In addition, although the review documents
s how some improvement in the status of the fine lined
-pocketbook, orange-nacre mucket, Alabama moccasin-
:shell, southern clubshell, southern pigtoe, ovate club-
shell, and triangular kidneyshell, threats to these species
still remain, and no change in their classification is rec-
ommended.
The five-year review recommendation for the upland
S-'combshell and southern acornshell is to remove them
from the List of Threatened and Endangered Wildlife due
to presumed extinction. Historically, the southern acorn-


shell occurred in the Mobile River Basin's upper Coosa
River system and the Cahaba River above the fall line in
Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee. Removal from the list
requires a formal rule-making process, including public
review and.comment.
The most recent records for the southern acornshell
were from tributaries of the Coosa River in the early
1970s, and the Cahaba River in the 1930s. The historical
range of the upland combshell included portions of the
Black Warrior, Cahaba, and Coosa rivers of the Mobile
River Basin and some of their tributaries in Alabama,
Georgia, and Tennessee. The most recent records for the
upland combshell were from the Conasauga River, Geor-
gia, in 1988, and from.the Cahaba River, Alabama, in the
early 1970s.
At the time these species were protected under the
ESA in 1993, it was the consensus of the scientific com-
munity that they persisted in low numbers in the upper
Coosa River drainage and possibly in the Cahaba River.
Despite repeated surveys of stream habitats in the Coosa
and Cahaba River drainages, as well as other drainages
of historical occurrence, no living animals or fresh or
weathered shells of these species have been located since
they were protected under the ESA, and both species are
presumed to be extinct.
A copy of the five-year-review can be obtained by con-
tacting Connie Dickard, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,
6578 Dogwood View Parkway, Jackson, MS 39213.
The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is
working with others to conserve, protect and enhance
fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats for the continuing
benefit of the American people.

Grouper season

closures set


to help species

The. recreational harvest season for red and black
grouper in Gulf of Mexico federal waters closed Feb.
15 and will reopen on March 15. Federal waters ex-
tend beyond nine nautical miles offshore of Florida in
the Gulf.
The recreational harvest of red and black grouper is
still allowed in Gulf state waters inside the nine-nauti-
cal-mile line under existing Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission bag- and size-limit regula-
tions.
The recreational harvest season for gag grouper
from all Gulf waters off Florida closed on Feb. 1 and
will reopen on April 1.
The commercial harvest season for gag, red and
black grouper in all Gulf waters off Florida, except
Monroe County waters, closes on Feb. 15 and will re-
open on March 15. The commercial harvest season for
gag and black grouper in all Atlantic waters off Flori-
da, including all Monroe County waters, closes March
1 and will reopen May 1.
These season closures will reduce the harvest of
groupers and help rebuild the population of these
species.


News from your

local Division

of Forestry
Our Florida weather can change quickly. Even
though the soil in some places is damp brush fires can
still start, especially, in the northern part of the state
where recent'frosts have killed many types of grasses.
Dead grass can dry out enough to burn within one
hour after a rain. Therefore an escaped yard trash fire,
with even moderate winds, can be come a wildfire.
When this type of back yard fire escapes, suppression
costs can be high and property loss extensive. The in-
dividual responsible for the escaped fire may be
charged for all costs incurred from the suppression.
The Division of Forestry wants everyone to know
the appropriate and legal way to burn yard debris (the
vegetative matter resulting from landscaping and yard
maintenance including tree and shrub trimmings, grass
clippings, palm fronds, trees and tree stumps). Note
the differences in setbacks for rural and non-rural
counties.

In order to legally burn:

The fire must not create a nuisance or health ;
....-hazard-- -. ..
The fire mustbe 150' from any occupied building
other than that owned or leased by the person doing
the burning (300' for non-rural)
The fire must be 50' from any residence on the
property where the burning is being done
The fire must be 50' from a public highway or
road- providing that no visible smoke will be allowed
over adjacent residences or roads that will cause a
nuisance (100' for non-rural)
The fire must be 25' from any woodland, forest or
brush
The fire must be ignited after 9:00 AM and extin-
guished one hour before sunset
The fire must be attended ,t all times
Adequate firefighting equipment must be readily
available at all times
Moisture content and composition shall be favor-
able to good burning (water and dirt cause excessive
smoke when burning)
There must be no other rules or laws prohibit the
burning
For more information on how to conduct outdoor
burning, contact your local office of the Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry.
