I would recommend running the fan
A : in the auto position so that it cyElb
with the compressor.
The evaporator coil is wet after pulling'the
humidity out of the house. Therefore, if the
blower (f)! is in the on position it puts
humidity-..k into the house.
If you want to run the blower (fan) by itself,
just to circulate air, this is fine.

EXTENSION UPDATE



Frugality


is "in"


By Katherine Allen,
UF/IFAS Suwannee County
Extension


4- -u,
L


Heard lately in the news
or your friends talking
abou your carbon foot-
prinp or your ecological -- .
footprint? Basically this
nuniber symbolizes how
we,, qs humans, impact the
~l4's ecosystems taking
intp, account waste, water,
and energy. It represents
the amount of Earth's ca-
pacity to regenerate the resources humans consume (like
land and water) and to render harmless the' correspond-
ing waste. So, this measurement is an estimate of how
many Earth's would be needed to support our current
lifestyle. Humanity's total ecological footprint is esti-
mated at 1.3. In other words, the world population would
require 1.3 planet Earths in order to maintain our cpm-
munal standard of living. Let's take a closer look at the
energy component.
Energy is created mainly by fossil fuels. The three
main fossil fuels are coal, oil and natural gas. Fossil fu-
els take millions of years to form, which means they are
nonrrenewable resources. Today, fossil fuels supply,
morc than 90% of the world's energy.
Unfortunately, humans are using fossil fuels 100,000
times faster than the earth is creating them. One problem


with burning fossil fuels to create energy is that we have
combustion by-products which are referred to as green-
house gas emissions.
In addition to reduction in supply is the issue of the
demand that has been created. There was as much oil
produced and consumed in the 1960's as was in the en-
tire hundred years prior. The world's population has
soared to six billion -.four times what it was at the be-
ginning of the century. Florida itself was ranked 4th in
the nation's population with 18.3 million people. Sur-
prisingly, the United States only has about six percent of
the world's population; yet we consume over 1/3 of the
total supplies. As a result, the U.S. is the world's largest
energy producer, consumer, and net importer.
People using energy is not new. Fire has been used
since the Stone Age to provide heat and light. In ancient
times, transportation used wind to sail ships and hy-
dropower to grind grain. A hundred years ago, falling
water was used to make electricity. Today we still use
energy to produce electricity which allows us the com-
fort of lighting, television, refrigerators and other elec-
trical gadgets. Florida's per capital residential electric de-
mand is among the highest in the country due in part to
the high air conditioning use during hot summer months
and the use of electricity for home heating in the winter.
Not only does energy heat and cool our homes, offices,
and schools, but we also used energy for transportation
(cars, buses, motorcycles, trucks, planes and trains.) In
Florida, due in part to our tourism industry, demand for
transportation fuels is among the highest in the United
States: Energy lets us create "things" such P clothes,
dishes, books, computers and bicycles.
So, how to we satisfy our energy needs today without
compromising the resources of tomorrow? There are a
couple of ways to accomplish this task. One way is to
develop alternative sources, of energy. By reducing our
dependence on imported,energy, we can reduce the vul-
nerability of interruptions and price increases within the,
United States.
The second is until. we perfect these emerging tech-
nologies, we need to use energy efficiently to protect the
reserves and the environment. Pending improvements in
technologies such as wind energy, geothermal energy,
solar energy, hydro-electric power, biomass, or alterna-


tive fuels such as bio-diesel, ethanol and others, we will
have to use the. old energy forms (fossil fuels) as effi-
ciently as possible. Additionally, we are going to need to
push our governments to make some non-traditional de-
cisions. In Florida we are lucky to have an energy code
as part of the building code. Some other decisions may
include purchasing vehicles that are hybrids or flex fuel.
By requiring higher standards we are ensuring we are
using energy in the most economical way possible, thus
keeping its use to a minimum.
The good news about energy efficiency is it doesn't
mean doing without. For example, driving a car or using
electricity is not wrong. We just need to be smart about
using it. For example, could you use less energy by car-
pooling? One car with four people xagless energy than
driving four cars to work. Conservinirfitoday's eco-
nomic climate may help people be able to live in their
homes.
The other good news is that YOU can implement en-
ergy efficiency almost anywhere and at ANY time!,We
can practice it at home, at school, at our jobs or during
leisure activities. Sometimes, it is as simple as turning
off the lights you don't need it or changing to a more ef-
ficient bulb like a compact fluorescent. It could be walk-
ing or bicycling to a friend's house instead of driving.
Any time we can reduce the use of fossil fuels, we re-
duce emissions of harmful pollutants into the earth's at-
mosphere while we save energy! We have a responsibili-
ty to do better.

SThe Lee CentennialCelebration of 2009 will kick off
with a flag raising on Saturday, March 28. For several
years the Town of Lee has had its own flag gracing the
town hall functions alongside our federal and state flags.
This year Carlton Burnette has made it.possible for us to
'pdurhase an all-weather flag. We appreciate Burnette
"Plumbing.
Before the flag raising, there will be a reenactment'of
ie signing of the original incorporation papers of 1909.
Ti.ere will be short speeches by both local and county of-
ficTals as well as any state officials who may attend.
",';There will be a band as 'well as refreshments, perhaps a
'endor or two selling dinners. The flag will be raised
about five-thirty bF 'siki i en'f llI.'i'mlli.'thi' so dial hbur a

J- A veek later, on Saturday, April 4, the Centennial cele-
bratign will erupt wildly as Lee puts on the greatest Lee
Ic"mlecoming Day of its entire 20 years of existence. We
'dot't know yet if the Methodist Church will stay with its
jpancakes and sausage breakfast as usual or if they may

take a stroll through the vendor aisles where you're sure
to find something you simply can't resist among all those
interesting and unusual items. Also be sure to learn some-
thing from the aisle of informational booths, especially
those which show you why Madison County is the best
place in Florida in which to hang up your hat. The quali-
ty of life here is amazing. Schools, churches, law and
safety, farms, animals, hunting, swimming, fishing, boat-
ing, golf, industry and stores galore which will meet all
your needs, with the added plus of good neighbors.
The highlight of the day will be the big parade, espe-
cially if Sen. Bill Nelson, who has been invited to be the
Grand Marshall, doesn't have a last minute emergency.
The parade is in capable hands of Chamber Director Ted
Ensminger of whom everyone expects too much, but will
probably get it! Be sure to get your application in to Ted
early!
Also in capable hands are the children's activities. Be-
sides the clowns, Michael Curtis will keep them happy
with a tractor pull, inflatable slides, train rides, pony
rides, petting zoo. There will also be a pet contest and
model planes show.
Mark Branham will ensure that all vendors are not only
plentiful but that they follow all rules and do ndt offer
anything inappropriate especially for children, like can-
dy cigarettes or of dime store value. He will make sure
our guests are well pleased with their purchases.
I should have included the fun run earlier in, this be-
cause that is the first activity of the day. If you would
like to get your body physically ready for the day's activ-
ities, give Sylvia Linton a call (850-971-4278) for details
, on the run.
Mary Ann Wicker (blue ribbon event chair) will gladly
accept calls on information on this. All handmade items
from quilts and afghans to aprons, ceramics, artwork,
baked and canned items, even writing and children's art
of all kinds call Mary Ann (850-971-5119) for more
specifics.
Also bring your baked goods cakes, cookies, pies,

editions of the Democrat, is formed by that board.




OUR
Suwannee Democrat


Here & there

Congress wants to know we're serious about
education in Florida. That's the reason, we gath-
er, for the clause in the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act (aka the stimulus package) .
denying education funds to states that have cut
school spending to below 2006 levels. To get
the money, $3.6 billion over the next three
years, all we have to do is restore education
funding to where it was way back when. Easier
said than done, with state revenues in Florida
still falling like. a rock.
On the bright side, Gov. Crist does seem con-
fident he'll get a waiver from the feds and that
all will end well. Let's hope his enthusiasm is
well placed and that teacher layoffs here Supt.
Jerry Scarborough has warned there could be as
many as 80 can be kept to a minimum.
* *
It's time to ease up on the city for Pilgrim's
Pride's failure to pay its,$76,000 utility bill last
November. This one wasn't their fault. The mon-
ey we're owed is for a single month's worth of
gas, water, sewer and garbage services. No one
"let" Pilgrim's run up so large a bill. And now,
of course, federal bankruptcy laws prevent us
from collecting.
No more rants on.this topic, folks.

The Chamber of Commerce got it right with
the selection of Joe Flanagan and Ronnie Poole
as Citizen of the Year and Trailblazer, respec-
tively. These two gentlemen represent our best.
Congratulations, Jerry and Joe.

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 every-
one 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.

I'm writing in response to the ranter
that suggested that Pelosi, Reid and
Obama are leading Americans down
the wrong path. I would just like to re-
mind readers that the current trillion
dollar deficit we have is thanks to the
Republican majority that WE did not
vote for in November. I suggest you
take a look around and figure out
what's really important in America. Is
it the bitter partisonship that is destory-
ing our nation or is -it stimulating our
economy so that this recession doesn't
become a depression. Not to mention,
the Republican majority took away our
freedom and prosperity. Remember
the Patriot Act? A law that can have an
American citizen tried in a court of law
as a terrorist. Remember the deregula-
tion of our financial institutions under
the Bush administration? That's what
allowed banks to hand out this ridicu-
lous mortgages...'that's what allowed'
CEOs to rake'in millions while YOU
were left with nothing. You can vote
however you want, just don't forget
that Republicans got American into
this mess and just like in 1992, it's go-
ing to take Democrats to get us out of
it.

On several occasions, the question
has arisen as to why the city let Pil-
grim's Pride get away with not paying
its bill. The city did not let Pilgrim's
Pride feed mill.renege on their pay-
ment, the bankruptcy court did. The,
'city has ordinances that dictate pay-
ment and when services can be discon-
tinued. These ordinances apply, to both
commercial 'and residential accounts.
Pilgrim's Pride had an outstanding bill
for the month of October. Before that,
they were current on their payments.
Payment for services are due by No-
vember 15. If not paid by the 15th, ac-
counts are considered delinquent. Cus-
tomers then have five days to pay their
bill before being "turned off." If this
occurs, late fees and reconnect charges
are assessed before reconnect takes
place. It was decided to wait to run the
cutoff list until Mbnday, Dec. 1 due to
the Thanksgiving holiday. City Hall
would be closed for two days and users
would not have been able to pay their
bill. We didn't want residents to be
without water and other services dur-
ing the Thanksgiving holiday. On Dec.
1, Pilgrim's Pride declared bankruptcy.
From that point forward, their debts
were protected from collection by the
Court. When it was discovered that
bankruptcy had been declared, the city
filed papers with the court to ensure
that we would not be left holding the
bag again. Pilgrim's Pride has been cur-
rent on their payments since then. If
not, service will be discontinued. There
was absolutely nothing the city of Live
Oak could have done to keep this situ-
ation from happening.
On Jan. 30, your cell phone number

I would like to take a moment to re-
Smind all of us to take a stand against
the constant reduction in School
Funds. This 2008-2009 year my child
could not attend Branford School for
Pre-K because of the budget cuts. Now
they are considering cutting another 80
jobs????Will there even be enough
teachers in Suwannee County to teach
our kids? I am outraged that we can
spend money on everything else but
leave our children in the balance. It is
bad enough that Pre-K was cut and our
Special Ed class consist of 13 students
from K-5th grade placed in ONE class
with ONE teacher, but now we are
talking of cutting the budget again!
Dont we realize that our kids ARE
OUR FUTURE?

I'm sorry for the fishermen of
Suwannee County, because of the
County Commissioners vote to not go
ahead with the Lake Louise, project. It
seems a few peoples interests are being
put before the good of the rest of us.
Because people "live around a lake,
does not mean they "own" the lake.
The county owns property on the lake
and there was grant money to go for-
Sward with a ramp to launch boats for
fishermen. If motor noise and boat
traffic was really a concern, why could
there no be a restriction such as mak-
ing it an electric motor only lake. So
many of the local lakes are so low,
launching boats is difficult, if not im-
possible. Lets go back and see if we
can get this right -- for the good of
.ALL the county residents -- not just a
few special" people living around the
lake. My thanks to the two Commis-
sioners who thought of the interest of
all the citizens of the county, not a few
around the lake. Thanks to Mr. Udell
and Mr. Maxwell.

been abandoned The commission sim-

Again this year, the weather wasn't
kind to the Olustee battle festivities in
Lake City. It seems like for the last sev-
eral years, it has rained or been ex-
tremely cold..The Rebel encampment
sponsored by the Suwannee Museum
was interesting. There were several in-
teresting characters sitting around the
campfire. Them there Yankees got their
butts kicked again this year and turned
tail and beat it back to where they come

want to be humiliated in the paper for
that. How embarrassing and humiliat-
ing it would be for me to be caught us-

shame of that would be ever lasting.
Yeah, sure.

Peacock Lake used to be a beautiful
figure-8-shaped lake. It used to have
lots of boaters, fishermen, wildlife en-
thusiasts and much more. Over the
past few years it has become 2 small
mud holes. My heart goes out to the
unfortunate people who have homes
around the lake. Those homes, which
used to be wonderful, waterfront
homes are now sitting on the edge of
weeds and muck; docks standing 15
feet high and 50 feet long only leading
to more weeds and muck. The county
boat ramp entrance has even been
chained and bolted closed. It's a real
shame. My thoughts are that some-
thing they have done over at the new
prison up the road on 90 has damaged
the underground eco-system. When is
our county going to realize and admit
that something very wrong is happen-
ing at Peacock Lake? Please call the
county and make sure someone is held
responsible for this great loss.

I would like to reply about the per-
son in the Feb. 6 paper that said he was
replying to the person in a previous pa-
per that called the Democrat the black
Democrat. He said he thought the per-
son must be prejudiced because a
black did something positive instead of
committing a crime. I think these are
people that want to say anything they
want to, but don't want anything said
against them. I think it is time the ma-
jority 'f the people say what is on their
mind instead of letting the minority,
just because they are louder or bigger
say what they want. Everyone black or
white has a right to speak their piece,

The thing I know is that our country

even more serious economic dilemma.
Something has to be done. Whether the

save the citizens of Live Oak millions
of dollars and get needed projects com-
pleted.
I congratulate Randy Torrance for
being selected as the new executive di-
rector/ curator of the Suwannee Coun-
ty Museum. Randy replaces Richard
Herring who has served part time in
this position. Both Richard and Carol
served our community at the Museum
well for many years. They were both
faithful and dedicated servants. Randy,
who is full time, has been haid at work
developing new programs and arrang-
ing events through the Museum. The
next event is Saturday; March 24. The
Suwannee Chili Challenge features all
kinds of chili. For $7 you can taste all
the chili entries and vote for your
choice as the best. You also get a cold
drink which you will need to put out
the fire in your mouth from some of the
varieties. Better bring your antacid.
Chili teams can enter for $10. Let's
support our museum and its many ac-
tivities with your participation.
I hope everyone fulfilled your Valen-
tine's duties. Diane wanted me to take
her to the most expensive, highest
priced place I could think of for dinner,
and I did. I took her to a gas station and
bought her a sandwich. You can't get

"In the Eye: Diversity,

Society and Us"

Barden, NFCC art instructor and gallery coordi-
nator. 'This exhibit brings together three artists
from different states who are investigating ideas
about society, identity and relationships, but
from very different points of view with strong
and thought provoking imagery."
Artist Christopher Olszewski of Mississippi
is a completely assimilated Native American.
His paintings weave an intricate line between
propaganda and advertising with an emphasis
on the abuse of the word liberty. His drawings
depict connotations to disparate images of Na-
tive American Stereotypes.
Dont6 Hayes of Atlanta, Georgia uses his art-
work to speak on how society shapes identity
on the bases of assumptions and accusations.
His artwork is a continual exploration of inter-
preting the story and icon of the "Gingerbread
Man" through his invented character the "Gin-
.gerblack Man." He incorporates pop culture,
history, technology and a "cookie-cutter" men-
tality with his, while opening the viewer to con-
front issues of imagery, stereotypes, and the so-
cial political realities of chasing the American
dream.


Lisa DeLoria Weinblatt of New York is a fig-
urative painter whose imagery is informed
through personal experience, imagination and
direct observation. Her paintings present images
concerning the nature of relationships between
men and women, with a goal to create humanis-
tic awareness in a framework which is univer-
sally recognized.
The public is encouraged to visit NFCC's
current art exhibit. The exhibit is open through
March 13 in the NFCCArt Gallery, located in
the Student Center (Bldg. 9) on the NFCC cam-
pus in Madison. For more information, contact
Lisa Barden, NFCC art instructor at 850-973-

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT



National Children's Dental Health Month


By Laura Sainz, Brighter Smiles
Program Coordinator,
Suwannee County
Health Department

February is National Children's
Dental Health Month. This is a good
time for parents to evaluate their
children's oral health. Here are three
common questions parents often ask.
How can I help my child fight
cavities? Fighting cavities begins at
an early age. You can help your child
by cleaning their teeth as soon as the
first tooth appears. Begin cleaning
by wiping with a clean, damp cloth
everyday. As more teeth start to
come in, switch to a small tooth-
brush. When your child is two years
old, switch to fluoride toothpaste.
The health of a child's baby teeth
and gums play an important role in
the health of their adult teeth. You


should never put your baby to sleep
with a bottle with a sugary drink in
it. The sugar causes tooth decay.
Should my child wear a mouth
guard when playing sports? It is very
important that your child always
wears a mouth guard when playing
sports. Mouth guards protect your
child's teeth as well as prevent acci-
dents such as biting their tongue.
When do I first take my baby to
the dentist? There are many different
theories on when you should take
your baby to the dentist for his or her
first visit. Many dentists agree that if
you are brushing your baby's teeth
everyday and things seem fine, three
years old is a good time to start. Be-
fore the age of three babies really
don't understand what's going on
and it's harder for both the child and
the dentist. When the child is older
they are more likely to cooperate


with the dentist. If you have ques-
tions or concerns about your child's
oral health, please speak with your
child's primary care provider or with
your dentist.
The Suwannee County Health De-
partment also helps to protect your
children's teeth through the
"Brighter Smiles" project: We offer
fluoride treatments weekly to
Kindergarten through 5th grade stu-
dents with parental permission. We
also offer free dental screenings and
sealants for Suwannee and Lafayette
2nd and 7th graders through the
school system. So far this year we
have done over 400 screenings and
sealants.
For more information about the
"Brighter Smiles" project or to
arrange a presentation for your
group, please contact Laura Sainz at
386-362-2708 extension 232.

homestead your property to obtain RP decals; however,
you must obtain RP decals with homesteaded property.
Regular Mobile Ilome Decals
If a mobile home does not qualify as real property
State statutes require mobile home registrations be re-
newed annually by December 31. A delinquent fee is
charged if the registration is not renewed by the 10th of
the following month. FS 320.07
Registration fees are set by the Florida Department of
Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles and are based on the
length of the mobile hoine. Double wide and triple wide

units respectively, and the owner must purchase that
many decals. Mobile home owners are required to dis-
play the decal in the lower left hand corner of a window

completed and submitted through the Tax Collector's of-
fice. To title a used mobile home the Florida title or the
out of state title must be presented and must be endorsed
over to the current owner. A bill of sale is also needed.

Suwannee County Animal Shelter


"Loving Pets For You"


By Ana Smith

For the last couple of
weeks the volunteers at
our shelter ,,ye been
working very hard to get
everyone we know. to
check out a website that
has the potential to make
our expansion project real-
ly come to life in a big
way. We are asking every
person who reads this
newspaper and has a com-
puter to log on to
"Zootoo.com" and help us
keep moving up the rat-
ings chart. In just three


weeks we have made a big
jump, but we have a long
way to go. If you don't
have a computer, you ,
might
think about going to the
public library and logging
onto the website there.
Every point helps!!
This website is for a
"Million Dollar Shelter
Makeover", and this is
their second year offering
this prize. The top 20 shel-
ters will then be visited by
a committee from the pro-
moters of this event to de-
termine the most needy,

,So you see, there is a
chance for us to receive
one of the prizes for the fi
nalists if we can make it to
the top 20. But we need
the help of our citizens.
This is not limited to
Suwannee County. You
can refer this website to
everyone you know who
will go to the website and
vote for the Suwannee
County Animal Shelter by
name and also put our zip
code ( 32062 ) in the prop-

they live, your church, and
your work place.
But there are only about
20 more days left to par-

Please help our county

We have worked so hard
for the last three years to
make our little shelter the
best it can be, and this is a
chance to enlarge and i"m-
prove everything about our
shelter and its services to
the county. There are other
prizes for the finalists, and
.wouldn't it be so wonder-
ful to be the recipient of .
more money and supplies
for our animal residents?
And wouldn't it be won-
derful to have our expan-
sion project include every-
thing a shelter needs, in-
cluding a place to have a
local vet come in and take
care of some of the basic
needs of our strays, right

of how much more we
could accomplish with that
kind of facility, and how
much of a positive differ-
ence one of the cash prizes
would make for us!

well. His expertise ranges
from special teams coordi-
nator to defensive coordi-
nator. Odom also spent a
season as assistant head
coach for the Philadelphia
Soul in the Arena Football
League. His time as head
coach at Coffee County
High School gave'the pro-
gram its best record in 25
years, according to the
school's Web site. He start-
ed at Coffee in 2005.
Odom said he sees ath-
letics as a tool to help stu-
dents further their educa-
tion.
"We need to get these
kids to further their educa-
tion," said Odom. "That's
what part of being a coach


at'this level is about. The
kids can always come to
me."
Odom said his experi-

Arena Football League
have given better organiza-

game.
"When you do that for 6-
7 years and you do it full

Odom. "I took things from
Spurrier (and other coach-

each coach you're with."
Odom plans to move to

wife Donna have three
sons, Victor, 21, Reid, 10

Odom was named coach

sioner Billy Maxwell dis-
senting. The motion to fire
Wooley came under an
emergency item that com-
missioner Wesley Wain-
wright asked be placed on
the agenda. Emergency
items are not publicized in
advance. Udell contends
that the procedure violated
Florida's open government
laws.
However, other board
members questioned
whether a single commis-
sioner could seek a legal
opinion on such a matter.
"My understanding was
there had to be a consen-
sus of the board to do that
(seek an opinion)," said
Wainwright by phone. "If
he can get a ruling that's
fine. How to read it being
a controversial issue, I
don't know, I didn't have
any idea that it would be."
Commission Chairman
Jesse Caruthers agreed
that a majority of the
board had to request an


opinion.
S"If he can get an attor-
ney general opinion on his
own, it would certainly be
interesting to me," said
Caruthers.
Udell said a 2003 opin-
ion from then-Attorney
General Charlie Crist
states that items of contro-
versy should be placed on
the regular agenda.
While the Sunshine Law
does not require that an
agenda be provided with
notice of a public meeting,
"[t]he Attorney General's
Office recommends publi-
cation of an agenda," ac-
cording to Advisory Legal
opinion AGO 2003-53."
... The Attorney General's
Office has recommended,
however, that any formal
action on an item not on
the agenda be postponed
until the next regularly no-
ticed meeting, particularly
if the item is controversial.
In the spirit of the Sun-
shine Law, [a board or
commission] should be
sensitive to the communi-
ty's concerns that it be al-
lowed advance notice and,
therefore, meaningful par-
ticipation on controversial
issues coming before [the
board or commission]."
Udell said his reason for
pursuing a legal opinion
was to make sure other
controversial items are
placed on the agenda for
the public to see.
"I like to keep the pub-
lic informed," said Udell.

This is ridiculous. This state
of affairs needs to be abol-
ished. It's a travesty that
we're padding their wallets
not once, but twice. They
shouldn't be allowed to re-
tire and wait 30 days and go
back reinstated into the
same position or another po-
sition and making so much
money. Why the cutbacks
and the children are the ones
that are suffering. It's ridicu-
lous, it needs to be investi-
gated and I'm sick of it. The
children are not the first in
this county to be considered
they are the last and right
behind them are the teach-
ers. No wonder we can't
keep staff here and get pro-
fessionals that want to stay
in Suwannee County. They
are going to go elsewhere
where they can actually be
paid and appreciated. Let's
stop making the kids suffer.

Another town

for tonight,
will address

':y Jo Ross
.ASPER Concerned
citins will have another
change to voice their
feeling on the recent
turmoil Jasper. The
.concerns rere sparked by
the Jan. 7 s&oting death of
DeKovan Wais and by the
absence of witnuses,
meaning no charges have
yet been filed. As la,
enforcement officials
continue to search for chies,
the family and citizens
search for answers.
A town meeting will be
held tonight at 6 p.m. at the
Ernest Courtoy Civic
Center. Time will be
afforded to those who wish
to air their comments. It is
hoped that information can.
be shared which may lead
to an arrest and help to
alleviate fears and concerns
and which may ease the
tension felt in all areas of
our community.
As evident from the
Tuesday, Feb. 10 meeting
of the Jasper City Council,:
there is great need for
information sharing and not
criticism at this crucial time
Sin our community. During
( the mrting. the City
Council was addressed by
Rev. Jeffery Dove
regarding comments posted


online by a member of the
Jasper Police Department.
Dove informed the council
and the public that he was
filing a formal complaint
against the city for
statements made by the
officer on a news Web site.
Due to the large number
of requests received from
our readers, the Jasper
News is printing the
relevant portion of the
official transcript of the
comments made by Dove
during his address to the
council.

City Council
Chairwoman Kathy Avriett:
"Reverend Dove, you do
understand you have three
minutes."
- Reverend Dove: "I come
in peace and I come in the
name of Jesus Christ. To
the city council members,
the following are direct
quotes from a blog and
comments on WCTV in
response to an article
'Authorities and relatives
Searching for Answers in
Jasper Fatal Shooting.' The
author of the comments
identifies herself as 'The
Police,' and makes
reference to the current
investigation of Jasper law
enforcement into the
shooting of DeKovan Walls
and 'ffery Walls. These
comments are blatantly
vicious;..srespectful,
unrespect;,ih.
unprofessidol and
slanderous. I'i officially,
formally filing alomplaint
against the city of.sper
Department, and the itN of
Jasper for their part in !e
public confrontation by \
someone that's employed
with them. The manner in
which this law enforcement
representative has
conducted herself has only
proven to worsen the. i
already failed relauonship-
between the citizens and
officers in this community,
the police. The people of


Jasper deserve better. We
deserve respect, we deserve
justice not excuses and
never insults! As citizens,
we expect our public
servants to provide
unbiased support and serve,
service to us, especially
when we suffer a loss in
our community. We are
disappointed we areand
looking to you to right this
wrong and get back to the
business of protecting and
serving. I have also have
the comments, uh, by this
person, see, calling
themselves the Police on
the blog. Also, if you will
look back I received from
the city manager a
reprimand a so-called
reprimand, I would say, uh,
it says, uh, to Officer
Tammy Williams, uh, from
Interim Chief of Police, uh
referencing WCTV Web
site (Dove then read the
letter of reprimand aloud).
Officer Tammy Williams
signed it, she admitted to
doing it. I feel as though
it's outrageous!
"Now you say what you
want to say, it's
outrageous! This is the
mother of the young man
who lost his life, uh, uh,
and for her, and for him,
for Mrs. Williams to be rot
even be a pat on the hand, I
don't know what that was.
But I find this to be
outrageous. Uh, let me say
this. Ma'am, let me this'll
only take me a minute but
let me say this, I did not
come to cause trouble, but
you see these people we
* want some respect in this
town from your officers.
We are on the verge, I'm
saying you are on the verge
of a riot. I know you might
not care and I know you
might stay on the other side
of t'n but we tired and I
loVe e Lord. Let me say I
lo..I'mjx ot...not...not...and
I'm not going to disrespect
nobody. I m a productive
citizen. I pamy taxes. But


ya'll got to do something
with that police
department, and I mean
you need to do something
quick, because we have,
We're fed up! Really it's
just down right
disrespectful how they treat
folks and I don't know how
much more as citizens we
can take of it. And let me
just say this, it's not a
black/white issue. It's an
issue we feel unsafe. That,
that transpire right in the
community a couple of
blocks from the police
station and they never
arrived.
We tired of it. Let me say
this in my closing, let me
say this in my closing
comment. uh, uh...."
Kathy Avriett: "Sir, you
have 8 seconds left."
Rev. Dove: "Yeah, don't
worry..."
Kathy Avriett: "I ain't
worried."
Rev. Dove: "Yeah, I ain't
scared of you ma'am."
Kathy Avriett: "Okay,
now. Wait just a minute."
Rev. Dove: "Let me just
say this..."
Kathy Avriett: "Sir, now
you're being disrespectful."
Rev. Dove: "No, No, No,
I'm not by no means. Now
let me say this about the
Black History Month
Proclamation. We asked for
a Black History Month
Proclamation to declare
February Black History
Month in Hamilton County.
Mrs. Dozier felt like she
had something to say or did
not want to say about it,
about my past, she brought
up my past. My past ain't
got nothing to do with
Black History
Proclamation.
Kathy Avriett: "You are
out of order, have a seat."
Rev. Dove: "God bless
you."
Kathy Avriett: "You are
out of order, have a seat."
Ms. Rozier: "If you are
talking to me, Mrs. Dozier?


Rev. Dove: "Is that your

me what I said?"

age 9.

By Barbara Gill

BRANFORD Katee
Knapp has played third
base, center field and
shortstop, rounding out a
somewhat unconventional
softball career. Last season
Knapp returned to third
base, where she's most at
home, and batted .371 with
10 home runs (three in one
game) and 31 RBIs for Er-
skine College, in South
Carolina.
"It allowed me to relax
and spilled over into other
areas of my play," she said
recently. "Not just offen-
sive, but my ability to lead
the team and anything else\
that could have improved,
it did, I really think that's
because I was back at my
true position."
Knapp's.love for softball
began in Branford and at


cause "I was the only pOr-
son that wasn't afraid 6f
the ball."
She accepted a schola-
ship to Erskine, a small
Presbyterian school lobit-
ed in Due West, near Aii-

The Flying Fleet coach,
Alleen Hawkins, offered
Knapp a scholarship the.
very day she watched a
tape of her playing ball -
which was at the urgingdf
Katee's brother Robbie,'
Erskine baseball player.
(Robbie is currently in his
fourth season with the Riv-
er Hawks, a minor league
team in Rockford Illinois )
According to Hawkins;
Katee is a big reason for
the team's success last year
and for the optimism head-
ing into the 2009 season.
"While she's the most
dangerous bat in the Ersll-

Matt Anderson, a sports

Knapp's talent still makes
her a legitimate threat."

By Tom Daniels'
In 1980 John Wedgewood,
Virginia Engstrom and Tom and
Cathy Daniels sat down to play
bridge at the Pizza Place. Before
you knew it the Collins and Carters
joined in and the Live Oak Bridge
club was formed. They moved to the '
Golden Corral in 1989 and currently *
play at Thunder Alley on Monday nights, game time 7
p.m. The public is and has always been invited.
In those 30 years the most amazing things are: they
have never elected an officer, written a charter, or
charged dues! John Wedgewood has pretty much run
the business end of the club. This involves buying new

with no structure has lasted
so long-and touched many

UF's Equine Intensive Care Unit


saves lives of critically ill foals


GAINESVILLE, Fla. When
Ocala resident Irene Bryan's Ap-
paloosa mare, Skippa Secret, gave
birth to a premature foal last year,
both mother and baby needed im-
mediate medical care. Thanks to
veterinarians at the university of
Florida's Hofmann Neonatal Inten-
sive Care Unit, both horses sur-
vived.
"Our personal veterinarian, Dr.
,Andy Bennett, responded to my call
in the middle of the night," Bryan
said. "Based on what he saw after
coming out and performing X-rays
on site, he recommended that we
get both horses to the foal unit at
UF as soon as possible."
When Bryan arrived at UF's large
animal hospital, Bryan said veteri-
nary emergency team members
were waiting for them outside the
facility with a gurney.
"I was immediately impressed,"
she said. "The overall experience
was very satisfying."
The foal was treated for eight
days with antimicrobials and sup-
portive dare for prematurity and
sepsis. In addition, Skippa Secret
was successfully treated for a re-
tained placenta. UF veterinarians
continue to monitor the pair's
progress, although both animals are
successfully recuperating at home.
Meanwhile, Bryan's 9-year-old
granddaughter, who witnessed much
of the horses' ordeal, has decided
she wants to become a veterinarian.
"The foal was a gift to my grand-
daughter so that she could show her
in halter competition through 4-H,"
Bryan said. "She's now spending a
lot'of time with the foal and hopes
to learn more about veterinary, med-
icine because of this experience."
UF's neonatal intensive care unit,
commonly referred to as the "foal
unit," was established in the early
1980s and was the result of ai :
unique partnership between veteri-
nary specialists and humah neona-
tologists;at the UE Health Science
Center. Neonatology research at UF
has been'funded by the
Morris Animal Founda-


tion and Florida's Pari-Mutuel Trust
Fund as well as by the Florida
ThoroUghbred Breeders & Owners
Association.
The.state-of-the-art facility is
staffed by board-certified specialists
who can provide immediate medical
attention and handle any level of
care quickly. The foal init is Flori-
da's only equine neonatal ICU that
provides treatment by board-certi-
fied internists round-the clock for
critically ill foals and their dams,
365 days a year.
"We've got the crash cart ready to
go," said Dana Zimmel, D.V.M., a
board-certified internist specializing
in equine medicine and an assistant
professor of large animal medicine
at UF.
Most foals treated at UF's foal
'unit are born prematurely or are un-
der a month old. Among the most
common ailments treated at the unit
are bacterial infections, which can
produce clinical signs within the
first 24 hours after birth or the first
month of life.
The vast majority of cases seen at
UF's foal unit are considered emer-
gencies.
"Primarily, we see foals with sep-
sis, or bacterial infections in their
bloodstream; foals who have diar-
rhea or foals who have problems
because, they suffer from hypoxie-
ischemic encephalopathy, or a lack
of oxygen around the time of birth,"
Zimmel said. "'Those foals, known
as dummy foals, appear normal at
first and then within the first 48
hours of life, they lose the ability to
nurse. They also loseOtheir affinity
for the mare and often progress to
not being able to stand and even ex-
perience seizures.",
MIany foals who have been treat-
ed for "dummy foal syndrome"
have gone on to become outstand-
ing athletes, Zimmel said. Strike the
Gol, dthe 1991 Kentucky Derby
dinnerr, is just one example.
Thoroughbred breeding, season
takes place between Jan. 1 and June,


30, but occasionally foals will be
admitted to UF in the fall months,
ZimAnel said. The unit will accept
patients from referring veterinarians
as well as from individual clients
who would like to bring their foals
directly to UF's large animal hospi-
tal.
Anyone seeking more information
about the foal unit should call the
large animal hospital front desk at
352-392-2229.

PGA Player of the Year has local ties


.By Tom Daniels
PGA Professional Player of the Year honors have gone
to Sonny Skinner. Sonny is the nephew of Lynel Morgan,
Joe Phillips and the late Suwannee County Sheriff Buddy
Phillips: Skinner, who qualified for the PGA
Championship last year, has played on the PGA tour in
1990, '92, '97 and '98. As a matter of fact, the River
Pointe Golf Pro has played in at least one tour event for
the last three years. Skinner has also played on the
Canadian Tour as well as the old Nike Tour and the
Nationwide Tour, where his 280 starts rank fifth in the
tour's history
Skinner is the first Georgia PGA section member to
ever earn this honor. There are 41 sections in the country
and Skinner has been the most prolific in Georgia's
history. Skinner beat out his nearest opponent, Rick
Shuller of Virginia, by more than 400 points. The criteria
for the honor is spread over four different categories The
PGA National Professional Championship, PGA of
America's Georgia Section, PGA Winter Championships
and the Nationwide Tour.

Skinner used to regularly play the Suwannee Country
Club when visiting his grandmother, the late Lillian
Phillips. The PGA used to have a stop in Tallahassee and
Sif Sonny didn't make the cut, he could be found playing
here on Saturday or Sunday or both. He also played in a
few local tournaments at Suwannee and Lake City when
they were part of the Nike Tour.
Skinner, who recently turned 48, will be playing some
events this year on the Nationwide Tour and may pop up


in a PGA event. In two years he will qualify for the
Senior Tour and us old timers who played with this kid 25
years ago will know just how old we are.

Science in Defense of Religion

Most of the time when we hear about
science and religion, we expect it to be
science versus religion, or science and
religion in some way attacking each other.
SBut this need not be the case, as we see in
a recent book by the Harvard psychologist
George Vaillant, entitled "Spiritual
S. Evolution: A Scientific Defense of Faith."
Vaillant argues that we are hardwired to
Sbe religious. That is, our brains are
structured to make us spiritual beings.
Positive emotions like joy,, compassion and
empathy, which are advocated by all of the
major religions, are adaptive, whereas the
negative emotions like envy, resentment,
anger and fear, which all the major
Religions war against, tend to be
maladaptive. Prayer has a positive,
calming effect on the brain and the
person praying. Whether or not prayer
changes the world, it can hardly be
S,. doubted that it changes-the person who
Sprays, either by calming fears or uplifting
I -the spirit. Vaillant has been criticized by
some for "biologizing" religion, but his
Response to this is that philosophers and
n theologians have not done a complete job
Sof examining religion, and that brain
research is simply another way which to
S examine religion. And since we are a
S : profoundly religious, yet a profoundly
unscientific nation, it is nice to
:.occasionally see the two come together in
a way that enhances both.


I have seen the business that God has given to the sons of men to be
busy with. Hehas made everything beautiful in its time; also he has
put eternity into man's mind,yet so that he cannot find out what God
has done from the beginning to the end.


R.S.V Ecclesiastes 3:10-11

What are you most afraid of?


Heart Matters
By Angie Land

A recent online poll of-
fered the following choic-
es when some were asked
what they are most afraid
of:
a debilitating disease
or injury
not being successful


not finding the right
person to share life with
public speaking
heights
death
the unknown
the dark
Is yours on the list or
could you add further
frights? Webster's Dictio-
nary defines fear as "an
unpleasant and often
strong emotion caused by
the anticipation of dan-
ger." It is interesting and
worthwhile to note that
fear is caused by the antic-
ipation of danger, not the
danger itself. An old Ger-
man proverb says it this
way: "Fear makesthe wolf
bigger than he is." Person-
ally, I know this to be true;
the ones in my imagina-


tion can grow to mon-
strous proportions!
Fear also causes major
damage in our relation-
ships. For example, a fear
of rejection will cause us
to put up a wall to keep,
others from getting too
close. We perceive that if
they really knew us, they
wouldn't want to stick
around, so we let them
"in" only to a point. This
actually results in the other
person feeling disconnect-
ed from us, and rejection
happens, but not for the
reason we assume. This is
true in more than just ro-
mantic relationships, it
happens every day be-
tween parents and chil-
dren, siblings, extended
family ties and friend-


ships.
One of the most often
repeated phrases in the
Bible is "Fear not." It ap-
pears hundreds of times in
the Old and New Testa-
ments. However, the Bible
is not saying there is noth-
ing to be afraid of. Life
and relationships can be
risky, but in reality, our
unhealthy fear can be
counterproductive in fac-
ing the danger. Healthy
fear causes us to reverence
God and to escape "real"
danger. Unhealthy fear
over "perceived" danger
paralyzes us to the point
that it prevents us from ex-
periencing life as God
planned. Philippians 4:6-7
has this to say:
"Be anxious (fearful) for


nothing, but in everything
by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let your
requests be made known
to God. And the peace of
God, which surpasses all
comprehension, shall
guard your hearts and your
minds in Christ Jesus."
According to these vers-
es, we are to worry about
nothing and pray about
everything. Easier said
than done, but what this
really means is that fear
and faith cannot exist in
the same spot simultane-'
ously; when we feel
afraid, that is our warning
light to respond in faith to
God. It is our choice, we
can give our fears to Him,
or our fears will control
us. Talk to God about what


you are afraid of and allow
Him to guard your heart
and mind with peace. Only
He can bring that wolf
back down to size and He
will, because your heart
matters.

Blessings, Angle

Heart Matters is a week-
ly column written by Angie
Land, Director of the Fam-
ily Life Ministries of the
Lafayette Baptist Associa-
tion, where she teaches
Bible studies, leads mar-
riage and family confer-
ences and offers Biblical
counseling to individuals,
couples and families.

By David Matier ,
Are you aware
that God can get the
"job" done without
you? The Bible
reads, "I tell you
that, if these should
hold their peace the
stones would imme-
diately cry out"
(Luke 19:40). If
those declaring themselves to
Christ- saying they are His
witnesses, don't speak out on
His behalf (Matthew 28:19,
20) He will get it done but
you will miss out on the
blessing! If necessary the
stones, may be substituted -
speaking out on the Lord's
behalf.
In Matthew there is a fa-
miliar passage you have prob-
ably read.: Notice Jesus told
his disciples, "Ye shall find
an ass tied..if any man say
ought unto you, ye shall say,
The Lord has NEED of" him


S (and the colt also -
Matthew 21:2, 3).
S Compare that with
Matthew 9:37. Here
S you can see, "Labor-
ers" are NEEDED.
S Do you see the com-
parison? You should
not get TOO BIG
FOR YOUR
BRITCHES. As God
needed the ass he needs you
to do His bidding. If you
don't do the "job," take up
the responsibility of sharing
the Gospel, the stones could
become articulate if God
would so desire or an ass
could do the Job! It would
not be the first time an ass
became vocal. An ass spoke
to Balaam as recorded in
Numbers 22:28-30.

Typically I'm not a
gadget kid of a guy. I
enjoy useful tools that g r
help me navigate my
world, but I don't tend
to acquire technology
just because it exists;, .
In fact, the GPS Re-
bekah gave me for
Christmas is probably
the first time I've
asked for something electronic
just because I thought it would be
fun to play with. It is!
But I've got to say I've fallen in
love with my iPod. It's a great
companion when I-travel, and I
take it with me on many of my
long walks with Scout Labradoo-
die. I tend to alternate between lis-
tening to a podcast and enjoying
an album or two or great music.
Last night, for example, I listened
to a message by author and Mars
Hill pastor Rob

I'm still amazed at the
sound quality I get via my
$15 ear-phones and the
fact that every album we
own is at my fingertips. I
also discovered it was a
beautiful evening yester-
day and the windows to
bur house were all wide
open that I tend to sing
along with a little more
volume than I previously realized.
Apparently Rebekah could hear
me quite clearly, coming up the
street crooning "'m all broken-
hearted 'cause I can't get started
with you..."
I've been thinking about the
sound-track of my life, and what
music might best represent where
I am and where I am going.
There's a buoyancy to many of
my selections at the moment, cer-,
tainly indicative of my disposi-


tion; but I'm also aware that mu-
sic has a way of helping set mood,
so I find that sewing seeds of wor-
ship and hope and grace is some-
thing I can choose to do.
So I'm going to recommend a
few recent listening experiences
that might help any one of us find
our.path into a mind-set of devo-
tion and joy.

Legendary Kingsmen Quartet in concert


' The Legendary Kingsmen Quartet
will return to Madison on Thursday,
Feb. 19 at Bible Deliverance Church
starting at 7 p.m. A $7 donation is re-
quested at the door plus a free-will
offering will be received.
When it comes to quartet singing,
look no further than the Kingsmen'
Quartet. Celebrating over 50 years in
gospel music, this quartet has come to
be known as one of the pioneer'-
Sgroups in gospel music, and'has led
the way for newcomers. In 2000, the
Kingsmen were inducted into the .
Gospel Music Hall of Fame, and in


'

.-


2008, they were inducted into the
Christian Music Hall of Fame. Ray
Reese (owner/bass vocalist) was in-
ducted into the Southern Gospel Mu-
sic Hall of Fame in 2008, and is cele-
brating over 40 years of touring with
the group.
Down through the years, the Kings-
men have produced some of the top
musicians, singers and songwriters.
They have witnessed countless hits
such as, "Beulah Land", "Glory
Road", "Old Ship Of Zion", "Go And
Tell Somebody", "I Made A
Covenant" and many more! The


month of February in 2009 brought
about another number one song for
the Kingsmen titled, "When God '
Ran", which is currently playing on
radio stations across the nation.
The Kingsmen consists of Leg-
endary Ray Reese, Bryan Hutson,
Brancon Reese, Harold Reeds and
Phillip Hughes.
Make plans now to attend! Re-
served seating available.

Bible, an inquiring mind and an appetite!
Each of our Wednesday evening Lenten
classes will follow this schedule:
6-6:30 p.m. Eucharistic Service in the
Chapel
6:30-7 p.m. Dinner in the Alfred.Airth
Fellowship Hall next to the Chapel

Fellowship Hall

.Conclusion
SThe Bible has been described as man's
"owner's manual" to instruct us on moral
and ethical precepts for individual growth
and improvement in our community
relationships and social justice.
It is certainly that and much more, but
this Lenten study will focus on Christ and
His ultimate plans forus. The lessons we
will try to draw from our Lenten study are
that as part of Christ's redeemed creation,
we commit ourselves to holy living not
because of laws or commandments but
because we love Him (John 14:15); we
understand that eternal life for us has
already begun (John 5:24); and we are a
new creation in Christ (2 Cor. 5:17-19)
working through Christ with our prayers *
toward the birth of a resurrected universe
and man with a glorified material b'd" '
(Romans 8:19. 22),
These 'lasses will be presented by Andy
Decker.
