Going controlled burns one better


Foresters have
found another
way to clear land
of potential fuel
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
Prescribed bums are a good way to
prevent wildfires, but there's a draw-
back. They can get out of hand, espe-
cially When homes are too' ear the area
or conditions may not have been right
for a controlled bum to begin with.
The. folks at the Florida Division of
Forestry's Live Oak station, along with '
Gainesville's North Florida Wildfire


Management Team, have been using a
different technique to prevent wildfires
in the Houston and Ranchettes area of
Suwannee County.
This method involves destruction of
the shrubs and brush most likely to fuel
the fire. The wildfire hazard-reduction
work in the Houston Community oc-
curred on 112th Place, east of Parker's
Sod Farm. This project consisted of
knocking down heavy brush with a doz-
er pulling a water-filled roller-chopper,
and the mowing of 60 acres of brush
with a special mower with a rotary
mowing head. The removal of haz-
ardous wildfire fuel such as palmetto,
gall berry and scattered young pines,
has protected several family dwellings

Q


I would like to make some
improvements to my home this
spring but with the economy the way
it is, I'm wondering if I should.


-A Spring is almost here and despite
A what you see or hear every day in
the news about the terrible economy, life
and home improvements do go
on. In local neighborhoods. people are
giving their homes exterior paint job,;
they are adding crown molding, new
interior paint and all kinds of other home
improvements. The economy may not be
what we want it to be but not maintaining
and updating your home will cost you
when you go to sell. Stop into Live Oak
Paint & Flooring for help on your next
home improvement project.

Drugs for this Metabolic Condition
Porphyria is an inherited or acquired metabolic condition due to a
deficiency of an enzyme required for the production of heme. Heme
is the oxygen-carrying component of hemoglobin, a part of red
blood cells. Normally, the body uses enzymes to convert substances
called porphyrins to heme. When the normal process of heme
production is disrupted, the body may produce excessive amounts of
porphyrins, which leads to porphyria. Signs and symptoms of acute
porphyria include muscle weakness, abdominal pain, and seizures.
Medication may be used for preventing future attacks or treating an
acute attack. For acute porphyria, treatment may consist of a variety
of medications to control symptoms of the attack. Hospitalization
may be required. For acute pain, narcotic analgesics such as
merperi ine (Demerol) may be administered. To alleviate nausea
and vomiting, phenothiazines such as chlorpromazine (Thorazine)
or prochlorperazine (Compazine) may be administered. Chloral
hydrate (Somnote) may be administered to alleviate insomnia.
Glucose may be administered intravenously to maintain an adequate
intake of. carbohydrates. Hemin for infection (Panhematin) may be
recommended for severe attacks, and milder attacks that are
unresponsive to intravenous glucose administration.

ages from babies to, well we won't

treated with a visit from "Sam

passed out copies of the book, he en-
thralled the participants with bits of
information from the author's point
of view. All enjoyed great food and
dance instruction by Kathleen John-
son. Many joined in the fun and tried
the Charleston, the Jitterbug and sev-

during the evening, someone discov-
ered that the Maltese Falcon had dis-
appeared. Despite questioning the at-

of the elusive bird. What Happened

this treasure reappear? Pick up the

OPINION

We're down to

'shoot something'

Dwain Walden
Sometimes the past will jump
right out at you and scream.boo!
Down at the.home place I
found an old blue bottle in a di-
lapidated hog barn. It took me
back to my early childhood, and
it once contained blue stuff that
we dabbed on animals and hu-
mans. To this day, I still have no
idea what it was. We just always
called it blue stuff.
If we got a cut or scratch, someone would slop on
the blue stuff. And this was not just something that
happened at our place. Every country boy I knew
came to school at onetime or another vith one foot
painted blue.
In retrospect, I'm assuming it had antibiotic quali-
ties and was just for open wounds. I don't think it
would have helped a sprained ankle. Also, I don't
think it would have helped a broken hinge on a
screen door, though I would not have been surprised
at such application.
SGiven the broad application of this blue stuff, I had
to grin and wonder about pouring a few gallons on
our ailing national economy. Right now it's just got
red stuff all over it.
Our personal economies in the days of the blue
stuff were rather simple. If you couldn't afford it, you
did without it. I have no idea where the concept of
"compulsive spending" ever started, but I know darn
well it wasn't at our place. In fact, I still have a
homemade "double tree" that was cut from hickory
that reminds me of how we improvised. For those
who don't know, a "double tree" allows you to hook
two mules to a single implement. Too bad we can't
build one that would hook two political parties to a
single cause. Probably not enough hickory trees left.
Like many, I'm very frustrated about the state of
our economy. I'm also angry because I know that a
lot of selfishness, greed and corruption were in-
volved.
So I've been asked about the "stimulus package"
and quite frankly.I don't kndw. I hear a lot of people
talking about it pro and con. And some appear to be
certain one way or another on its workability.
When I think of the stimulus package, I'm not
naive to think there is anything as simple as a bottle
of blue stuff that's going to fix our economy. As we
often said on the farm, that horse has left the barn.
But I am reminded of a scene from a classic 1966
movie, "The Sand Pebbles." The U.S. gunboat San
Pablo is anchored in a river in China. The Chinese
are rebellious of its presence and have captured a
Chinese who was friendly to the U.S. Navy. The Chi-
nese militants have him tied up on a beam on the
riverbank and are carving him up with swords.
Engineer Jake Holman (Steve McQueen) grabs a
carbine and takes sight on the militants. The man be-
ing tortured is his friend. San Pablo's Captain Collins
(Richard Crenna) tells him to stand at ease. But, Hol-
man continues to adjust the sights on the rifle. At this
point, Collins yells, "If you fire that weapon, I'll have
you shot." In his great frustration and feelings of
Helplessness, Holman shouts back at the captain,
"Well shoot something!"
I think that's about where we are with a stimulus
package. Blue stuff won't do, but we've got to shoot
something.

For many people who are missing
teeth, dental implants are an attractive
option. In the Implant procedure, a
metal post is surgically placed in the
bone utder your gums, then, after a
period of healing, a replacement crown
not, however, an option for everyone.
Certain conditions must exist. Healthy
gums and bone are necessary to
support the post that, is implanted.
Also, because the placement of
implants is a surgical procedure, a
candidate must be in sound enough
health to handle the surgery.: Smokers
and diabetics also may not be
candidates for implants since both
those conditions may have caused
gums to deteriorate.
Implants can also be used to secure a
bridge or dentures when more .than
one tooth is missing. Generally, a term
of dentists is necessary when Installing
implants. One dentist, for instance,
may do the surgery to put the implant
in the bone and another may placethe
crown on the post. Talk with your
dentist about whether you are a
candidate for dental Implants. And
check with your insurance provider to
see if the procedure is fully or partially
covered.

Branford FFA


The
Bran
ford FFA chap-
ter has been busy this year partici-
pating in many community service
events, career development events
and conventions. During the sum-
mer, we took a group of ten people
to the FFA state convention in Or-
lando. Branford had five students
place in the top four in the state for
their proficiency awardfapplications
at the state level. This included a
first place win (in the whole state)
by Ciera Trisch, Spencer White,
and Anthony Cannon in their re-
spective categories. We also had
two members, Josh Garrett'and
Katelyn Kelley receive their FFA
state degrees.
The start of school brought the
officers to the home of our advisor,
Dod (Wilkerson), for an officer
leadership retreat to plan our pro-
grain of activities for the year. This
yeai's agenda has many events
planned, but our primary focus is
service to our community with the
hope of over ten community service
events planned! Our chapter was
successful at parking cars both
nights for the Suwannee River Rid-
ing Club's rodeo in September.
Then, we were able, in October, to
clertn up three parks of our rivers
and springs. We cleaned Little Riv-
er Springs, Sulfur Springs, and Ivey
Park. We hope to complete our mile
of highway, through the Adopt-A-
Highway program, as well as a few
more service projects, by the end of
the semester.
At the end of October, we took a
teaq) of four members to the district
forestry contest in Lake City. Team
members were Ciera Trisch,(se-
nioj, Trevor Harrison (sophomore),
Amy Smith- (junior), and MacKen-
zie Akers (8th grade). Our team
performed well for a first-time
team, and Cieta Trisch landed a
firstplace ribbon over everyone in
the timber estimation part of the
contest. Our forestry team would
really like to thank Brian Cobble
and Suwannee County foresters for
their help in preparing the team for
competition.
During October, our chapter offi-
cer team also attended the Chapter
Officer Leadership Training Day,
given by the state FFA. Here, we
learned many innovative ideas for
recruiting members and many new
ways to have fun! At the end of Oc-
tober, six students and our advisor,
attended the National FFA conven-
tior~ Here, we had four students re-
ceie their American Farmer De-
gree the highest degree possible


a 4W ,
+'' +... r+


~ within the FFA. This w~as the first
*,ear w ith "'Doc" i Wilkerson) that
an\ Branford members ha\e re-
ceiked this degree. The Branford
chapter also had more American
Degree recipients than an\ other
Florida chapter this )ear! The re-
cipients were Tera Harrison, Antho-
ny Cannon, Ernie Caparelli and
Kelsey Brown.
December brought the officers to-
gether again at Doc (Wilkerson)'s
house for an officer Christmas par-
ty. Each officer had to make a gift
for $10 or less. It had to be home-
made. EJ Fralick's gift of a wind-
chime won best overall, and Jenna
Garrett's gift of a homemade can-
dy/bubblegum machine won most
original. December also brought the
subdistrict competitions. 'Branford
showed a lot of talent in this area.
Erin Bronson represented our chap-
ter in the Creed speaking competi-
tion. Ciera Trisch won second place
in Prepared Speech with her
speech, "Could Agriculture be a
Cure for Cancer?," and EJ Fralick
won first at sub districts in the
Tractor Operations competition..
The district competition rolled
around in mid-January. Here, EJ
Fralick won second overall. We
also had an Ag Business Manage,
ment team consisting of member,
Robert Justice, Ciera Trisch and ,
Brittany Cramer. This was a firsi
time team, and they placed 16thn
the state preliminary competition.
Our Agricultural Mechanics Tern
was also a first-time team and on-
sisted of members: Trevor Hanson,
Aaron White, Robert Justice ad EJ
Fralick. The Branford team plied
15th in the state preliminary cl-
test.
Our chapter has stayed justis
busy during the month of Fetuary.
At the Florida State Fair, the ran-
ford FFA had great represent tion.
We had a four member teanbf
members compete in the st horse
judging competition. Meml s
were Madalyn Coyle, Amy .ith,
Myranda Holtzclaw and H nah
Thomas. This team placed !9th in
the state out of 75 teams! e would
like to thank the team "co h," Mr.
Ladon Terry, for his help prepa-
ration and transportation. Ve also
had an FFA dairy judgingteamrn
compete in the state dair3judging
contest, and place tenth. erall in
the state. Members were Madalyn
Coyle, Aaron White, Ge Mellette
and Trevor Harrison. O team
would like to thank Mr. im
"Bones" Norris of Liv Oak for his
help and use of his dairy and cows
for practice. Last, we d two
members compete in t steer show
and skilathon contest. trevor Harri-
son raisedour chapter teer which
wasn't able to show 4e to a few
pounds of shortage. I did still


compete in the skilathon and pre-
senition portion of the contest,. se-
moidivision. Jordan Ga lard
played first in his class with his
ster and also %\as the "Champion
of'hampions" (first place overall
% winert in the skilathon contest, ju-
nir division! Imagine that our
stall town had the best-of-the-best
irthe whole junior division of the
site!
We have also been working with
Jranford Elementary School and
fincipal, Carol Risk, to design and
lant the "Ag Gardens" at the ele-
hentary school for spring harvest.
VWe would like to thank Mr. Jim
Wilson, math teacher at Branford
High School, for helping with cal-
culations and design. Watch for
growth soon!
To celebrate National FFA Week,
we have many activities planned
such as an "Ag Fear Factor," "Ag
Olympics," Door Decorating Con-
test, Teacher Appreciation Break-
fast, and much more. As for the rest
of the year, we still have many
community service projects
planned, as well as our end of the
year annual banquet/awards. Please
let us know if you have a communi-
ty service project we could help .
you with! We also are preparing for
our county Land Judging Event and
County Fair. We have many mem-
bers preparing to exhibit swine and
steers. We would like to .thank Liz
Brown and Stacey Young for help-
ing our members transport pigs and
answering many "pig" questions.
Last, we had two seniors complete
state/national FFA scholarship ap-
plications and have many members
planning to complete proficiency
award applications for this year's
state convention. Watch for future
articles to see results!
Our chapter is so lucky to live in
such a caring, agricultural town that
really does try to help students bet-
ter themselves. In a time when edu-
cation is troubled, Branford and
Live Oak businesses and citizens
have really been "stepping up to the
plate" to help our chapter out, both
with opportunities and help. Also,
at a time when our economy has
been so short for so many things,
we have been blessed with support-
ers that always come through and
find some way to help! Words
could not say how thankful we are
for all of the support we receive,
nor the faith that you put in our
members to become a" better gener-
ation. The leadership skills, friend-
ships and knowledge that we re-
ceive from being active FFA mem-
bers will carry us through a lifetime
of "giving back" to those who will
come after us! We truly are "Learn-
ing to do, Doing to learn, Learning
to live, Living to serve." (FFA Mot-
to)

Nelson talks stimulus at City Hall


"Electric shock therapy"

for economy, says senator


By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com

U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson
came to Live Oak last
Tuesday to talk about
Florida's share of the
$787 billion economic re-.
covery plan that President
Obama signed into law
earlier that day. Twelve
billion of those dollars
will come to Florida.
Nelson said the stimu-
lus bill would provide
"electric shock therapy"
to an economy that "has
gone into paralysis."
Nelson said the state
has lost 255,000 jobs
since the recession began,
but that the plan will cre-
ate or save about 206,000
jobs in Florida. He noted
Florida's unemployment


rate -- 8.1 percent -- is
greater than the national
average, which is 7.6 per-
cent. The plan would pro-
vide almost half a billion
in new funding for ex-
tended unemployment
compensation, which will
go to an estimated three-
quarters of a million un-
employed workers in
Florida.
Seven million Floridi-
ans who have an income
of $75,000 for individuals
and $150,000 for families
qualify to receive an $800
per couple tax credit.
Florida will get $4.4
billion to help fund Med-
' icaid, which will assist
lower income residents in
getting medical care.
Stimulus funds will
also provide tax incen-

Charlie Conner said Joe Buhler of
Suwannee County Fire Rescue was
part of a Feb. 12 training class that
taught rescue workers how to more
accurately diagnose and respond to
heart attacks, using a 12-lead elec-
trocardiogram (EKG) machine.

ness, pain, shortness of breath and

million project) and the
.plant's reuse line (a $5
million project) and a
potable water treatment
plant (a $4.5 million pro-

City Administrator Bob
Farley said he. has been
told the projects will be
fully funded through
stimulus dollars. The-
city's storm water im-
provement projects and
sanitary sewer rehabilita-
tion may also be eligible
for funding, said Farley.
The plan allocates $3.6
billion for education in
Florida. However, the
state must request a waiv-
er to receive the funds as


Conner said the EKG machine
showed certain anomalies in the
'heart that could have been fatal were
the patient given nitroglycerin as is
commonly done.
"I'm very happy that he caught
that and I think it shows how these
classes benefit the patient in the
field," said Conner.
"It's nice going in, especially after
the training class, and seeing the
techniques put to use," said Buhler.
"Our main goal is to get that pa-
tient to a cardiac level hospital," said


congress requires spend-
ig levels for education in
209 to be equal to what
thy were in 2006, which
isiot the case here after
budget cuts in recent
years.
I the state gets those

Alan Espinosa, a paramedic in-

taught Conner's crew bw to read

Fuels Reduction guidelines:

Fuel reduction treatments
must be within 1/4 mile of six "
or more dwellings.

Projects are ranked accord'-
ing to hazard and the highest '
hazard areas are given priority' -
for fuel treatment. Wildland/ur" -
ban intermix areas (areas ,
where wildlands fuels are
spread through out the subdivi-
sion) should be the highest pri-

Mechanical treatment typi--'

Suwannee County


Animal Shelter


"Loving Pets For You"


By Ana Smith

Once again I find myself
explaining what the
Suwannee County Animal
Shelter is, what we do, and
where we are located. In
-the last two weeks I have
-iet at least five people
'who wanted to talk with
'me because they were told
1,"work" at the Suwannee
.Humane Society. I do not
"work" at the Humane So-
ciety nor am I part of their
organization. I am associ-
ated with the Suwannee
County Animal Shelter,
but I do not "work" there
... I am one of a number of
volunteers, a foster care
provider for pregnant cats
and their litters that need
care until the litter is old
enough to go back to the
shelter, and a member of
the Governing Board.
Please understand that
the Suwannee Valley Hu-
mane Society and the
Suwannee County Animal
Shelter are two completely
separate organizations. The
Suwannee Valley Humane
Society is not in Suwannee
County. It is located in the
town of Lee in Madison
County.
The Suwannee County
Animal Shelter is located 8
miles south of Live Oak
on 144th Street just off
highway 129 in the north
end of McAlpin.
The Suwannee County
Animal Shelter is not a
"np kill" facility. It would
be impossible to.be a "no
kill" facility unless we had
several buildings and at
least four times the staff
and volunteers We now
have to maintain such a fa-
cility considering the hun-
dreds of animals that come
through our doors every
month. From several other
facilities I have called to
verify that premise, it
seems a "no kill" facility
means the animals that are
currently "in house" at the
facility have been checked
for health and disposition,
considered a good adop-
tion prospect, and will .
be kept until they are
adopted. However, many
animals are rejected for
health, age, appearance, or
a bad disposition and are
turned away or euthanized
;b a local vet, usually at
; the cost of the owner, if
:there was one.
,.Please understand that
iuthanization, while a very
.'ad process, is sometimes
-A necessary procedure. We
lJaye picked up animals
that were running wild and
!neglected for so long their
health was beyond what a
facility like ours could do
,for them. We do not have
access to a vet who is will-
"ing to check out without
,charge the animals that
come to us, and consider-
ing the number we handle
every week, it would be
Cost prohibitive for us.
While the two animal con-
trol officers at our facility
Share experienced enough to
give an incoming animal a
routine check and treat ba-
sic problems, it takes a li-
censed vet to do the tests
that are necessary, and we
do not have the financial
means to afford the medi-
cines that would be need-
ed.
Some animals that come
to us, or that we rescue,
have been so badly abused
That they are very aggres-
Ssive. With only two offi-
Scers to serve the entire


contact of soft words and
gentle handling, makes all
the difference in the
world. Unfortunately,
there have been times
when the damage done to
some animals is too se-
vere, and the animal is
dangerous and has to be
put down.
So please, when you
hear stories or gossip
about shelters like ours,
come out and see for your-
self what is going on. Take
the time to see the ani-
mals, talk to the staff and
volunteers about the many
success stories we have to


share, and look at some of
the "before and after" pic-
tures of the abuse and ne-
glect some of our furry
residents have endured.
And please, if you love
animals, think about be-
coming a volunteer. There
is always a need for help
with the daily care of our
animals. Whether you
have a couple of hours a
week, a day or two a
week, or are available to
help us with our fund-rais-
ers, there is something you
can do. If you have towels
and blankets, or can afford
to support us financially,


!Z9


we rely on donations to
help us maintain our shel-
ter.
We are finally working
towards having our
ground-breaking for the
expansion very soon. If
you can donate any of the
materials we need, or if
you have some experience
in the construction or
building industry, we will
need a lot of volunteer
help to do the work. If you
can help, please call .the
shelter at 3867208-0072
and give your name,
phone number, and other
information to Janis


Hunter, Joe Brown, or
Judy Rowe so we can add
it to our list and notify you
when we are ready to start.
In the meantime, we
have a lot of dogs and cats
that need good homes.
Some are coming to the
end of their time with us,


and it is a joy for all of us
when we can send one of
our furry residents to a
loving forever home.
Come by and visit, and
help us make a difference
in the life of one of God's
small creatures.
God bless!

Girl Scout cookies make their annual.return


Submitted
You've been asking for
them. You've been waiting
for them. And they're final-
ly here! Thin Mints,
Samoas, Tagalongs and all
of your favorite Girl Scout
cookies are back.
In the North Florida re-
gion, please look for Girl
Scouts selling cookies' at
booths outside of local busi-


nesses through March 15.
You may also visit
www.girlscouts-
Sgateway.org to find a Girl
Scout cookie booth near
you. All of last year's fa-
vorites have returned in-
cluding Do-Si-Dos, Taga-
longs, Lemon Chalet
Cremes and sugar-free
Chocolate Chips as well as
this year's newest flavor:


Dulce de Leche. Each box
of cookies costs $3.50.
While you enjoy these
delicious one of a kind
cookies, you should also
take delight in what they
mean to local Girl Scouts,
the community and our fu-
ture. Through this annual
activity, girls learn how to
work together as a team, set
goals, and develop a plan to


reach those goals. Addition-
ally, Girl Scouts cultivate a
sense of business ethics,
public speaking, and inter-
personal communication
skills. They also acquire
knowledge in marketing,
money management and
customer service. Girl
Scouts ultimately get a true
sense of the value and re-
wards of their hard work..

or early twenties. He was wearing a
long sleeve black shirt, black pants'
and ski mask. The suspect had dread-
locks and was carrying a silver gun.
The other suspect is described as a
five-foot, eight-inch, 160-pound
African American male, in his late
teens to early twenties, wearing a
long sleeve black shirt, black pants
and ski mask. He was wearing gloves
and was armed with a handgun and a
claw hammer. The suspects were last
seen running toward the Trailer Har-
bor Mobile Home Park.
LOPD officers arrested two per-


sons earlier this month as "persons of
interest" in the string of attacks.
Though the men have since been re-
leased, Police Chief Buddy Williams
said they remain of interest to the de-
partment.
"I cannot definitely say that these
crimes are related to the economy,
but I am concerned that all the vic-
tups in these incidents are of Hispan-
ic descent except the one incident
where the victims were white fe-
males," Williams said in a written
statement. "The Live Oak Police De-
partment is trying to get information
out to the Hispanic community that
we need to know about allicrimes


committed in their neighborhoods
and would like to share some person-
al safety tips and advice with them.
This would include home security,
personal security and how to mini-
mize the threats to them. I can guar-
antee that the Live Oak Police De-
partment is taking these crimes very
seriously and are following up on
any and all leads in reference to these
crimes."
If you have any information on
these or the other home invasion
crimes, please contact the Live Oak
Police Department at 386-362-
7463, or Crime Stoppers at 386-
208-8477. .


Your purchase of Girl
Scout cookies supports the
Girl Scout program helping
girls develop into the lead-
ers of tomorrow.
"Participation in the Girl
Scout cookie program pre-
pares girls for future suc-
cess. They may become a

Taylor County
By Shannon Jernigan
Head baseball coach
Feb. 17 The Suwannee
Bulldogs baseball team
opened their regular season
with a 2-0 shutout over host
Taylor County in Perry Feb.

performance was by a trio of
'Dog pitchers who gave up
only two hits, three walks
and struck out 14.
Mack Murray started the
game with three innings of
hitless baseball, striking out
six hitters. Greg Bowers fol-
lowed with a three inning,
five strikeout performance,
surrendering only one hit.
Matthew Moses closed the
game by striking out the side
to end a Taylor County rally.
Offensively, the 'Dogs had
two hits apiece from Dalton
Wigelsworth and Andrew
Schroeder. Wigelsworth
opened the game with a dou-
Sble to the left-center gap, and
later scored on a wild pitch.
Schroeder singled in the
fifth and later scored on
Wigelsworth's second hit of
the contest.
The win puts the 'Dogs
record at 1-0 overall.

Deer colorblind to orange, but if you glow...


Another fall hunting season is winding
down, and while the sport continues to be
very safe, there have been some acciden-
tal shootings that could have been pre-
vented. Not all of those who were in-
volved in the shooting accidents were
wearing the proper amount of sometimes-
required and always-recommended hunter
orange.
If hunters think they are reducing the
likelihood that deer will see them by for-
going orange safety hats and vests, they
are mistaken. What deer can and cannot
see is surprising.
"Deer are somewhat colorblind," said
Cory Morea, deer management program
coordinator for the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC).
"During the day, deer see colors in
what we could consider blue to yellow-
green," added Elina Garrison, a biologist
with the FWC's Fish and Wildlife Re-
search Institute. "Some believe they are
completely red-green colorblind, like
some humans," she said.
Wearing orange is a good practice
when afield during any hunting season.
"Not properly identifying your target
and what is beyond, is the leading cause
of hunting fatalities," according to the
FWC's "2007-08 Florida Hunting Inci-
dent Report."
Although animal vision is often much
better than human sight, distinguishing
colors in daylight is not a strong point for
the white-tailed deer, although detecting
UV light is.
Drs. R. Larry Marchinton and Karl V.
Miller of the University of Georgia stud-


ied what white-tailed deer see in daylight.
Scientists from California and Wisconsin
also participated in the 1993 study.
The study showed that white-tailed
deer have two classes of cone photore-
ceptors; humans have three. Deer have
dichromatic (two-color) vision; humans
have trichromatic vision. So what deer
don't see are the oranges and reds that
stand out so well to people. These facts
have been echoed by others:
"Idaho law does not require the wear-
ing of hunter orange but it is highly rec-
ommended," according to that state's
hunter-education information. "It is a col-
or not found in nature, and most game
animals cannot see the bright fluorescent
color, since they are colorblind."
The International Hunter Education As-
sociation advises, "Wearing highly visible
hunter or 'blaze' orange clothing makes it
much easier for other hunters to see you
and increases your safety while hunting.
That's why the majority of states and
provinces recommend or require hunter
orange clothing for most kinds of hunting
activities."
Here is the rule in Florida: "It is unlaw-
ful to hunt deer or to accompany another
person hunting deer on public lands un-
less each person is wearing a minimum
of 500 square inches of daylight-fluores-
cent orange material as an outer garment
... above the waistline."
The reasoning is sound,. according to
the U.S. Centers for Dise se Control. In'
its report titled "Hunting-hssociated in-
juries and wearing 'hunt*' orange cloth-
ing," the CDC noted thaf the New York
Department of Environmental Conserva-

dents were not wearing hunter orange."
One caveat: Some hunters are color-
blind too and may not detect the orange
clothing. The FWC says, "Colorblind
hunters must use extra caution. They may
have trouble identifying game and recog-
nizing hunter-fluorescent orange.
"Good vision is the foundation for
good shooting and hunting safety, Have
your eyes examined on a regular basis."'
A second caveat: A deer's keen vision
includes detecting UV light, according to
manufacturers of hunter clothing. Some
cite studies indicating that deer can detect
clothing made or washed with UV bright-
eners. If so, hunters not only should wear
orange; they should be careful what else
they wear in the woods to be more effec-
tive. According to "How Game Animals
See and Smell," a book by Kurt von
Besser of Atsko/Sno-Seal Inc., most cam-
ouflage clothes and laundry detergents
contain UV brighteners, which deer can
detect. He says that hunters can avoid
brighteners by choosing camouflage out-
fits that are manufactured free of bright-
eners and by washing them only with a
laundry detergent free of UV brighteners.

Coach Mitchell's dad. Dr. Mickler enjoys
baseball nostalgia and being a modest man
implied I should mention some of our local
baseball talent.
Lee and Jesse Tannehill were one of the
first brother combinations in Major League
baseball. Lee was an outstanding defensive
third baseman for the Chicago White Sox.
He played against people like Cy Young
and Ty Cobb. He retired two years before
Babe Ruth began his career. Lee died in.
Live Oak in 1938. The Independent Post
ran an article about him over 20 years ago
and an appreciative relative was still in
Suwannee County. Ray Corbin was born in
Live Oak in 1949 and after starring at
Suwannee High went on to pitch for the
Minnesota Twins. Ray gathered 36 wins
and 17 saves in his five-year career. Ray's-
teammates included Harmon Killebrew,
Rod Carew, Bert Blyleven, Jim Perry and
Tony Oliva. He faced guys like George
Brett and Reggie Jackson. He is in the
Suwannee Hall of Fame.
Across the river they talk about a set of
brothers named Perry. We mention Chan
first because technically he was bom in '
Suwannee County. He had short stints with
"the Indians in 2000 and the Royals in 2002.
Herbert is better known and bom in Mayo.
He spent nine seasons in the bigs with
Cleveland, Tampa Bay, White Sox and
Rangers. Herbert appeared in the 1995
World Series and Tim McCarver had the
phones at ABC ringing off the hook when
he said Herbert had been a punter at
Florida State. Of course we all knew
Herbert went to Florida. Perry would hit 55
Major League homers including 28 in a
season. He can tell some great stories
having been on two Jose Canseco teams.
Teammate Jim Thome still stalks the
majors among many of Herbert's past
teammates. He now coaches his alma
mater, the Lafayette Hornets
In recent times Jason Kelly had aikibbt'
16bk by theCubs, 'Jake'Green pitdhe'a-
little in the Marlins organization, Mike
Jones played in the Toronto system, and his
brother-in-law Kenny Williams pitched all
over the world. Robert Paulk of Madison
pitches in the Mets organization and Tyler
Chambliss toils in the Kansas City farm,;
system. I am sure I missed a few but I am
hoping the best is yet to come.

You have an opportunity now more than ever before to
grow market share. Consumers don't stop buying when
the economy is in a down cycle- they look for the best
value. Continued assurances to your customers through
advertising that you have the value they seek will keep

Developing a strong Brand Identity is more important

per week to return
to their capture
site, in a practice
called "homing."
Others never make
it because they are
hit and killed by
vehicles as they
cross roads. Some
may be killed by
other crocodiles at
the release site or
during their journey


back.
In an effort to break the "homing" cy-
cle, FWC biologists have initiated a new
study. Crocodile agents have been in-
structed to attach magnets to both sides
of the crocodile's head at the capture
site. It is hoped the magnets will disori-
ent the crocodiles and disrupt their navi-
gation, so they can't find their way back
to the capture site. The magnets are re-
moved from the crocodile's head upon
release. Agents will also secure a col-
ored tag to the crocodile's tail, so return-
ing crocodiles can be identified later.
"Scientists in Mexico have reported
success in using magnets to break the
homing cycle," said Lindsey Hord, FWC
crocodile response coordinator. "The re-
sults of the study are promising. If it
proves successful here, we could gain an
effective technique to resolve crocodile-
human conflicts."
If a nuisance crocodile continues to re-
turn to the capture site, or its behavior
presents an unacceptable risk to people,
under certain circumstances, it could be
removed from the wild and placed into
captivity.
You should never approach a croco-
dile, and if you see one. that concerns
you, call the FWC's Statewide Nuisance
Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR
(866-392-4286) to report the animal. To

dile in Florida visitMyFWC.com/cioco-

CUMBERLAND, Md. Scott Ellingwood never
got any formal training when he helped his son start
America's Littlest Heroes, a nonprofit organization that
supports the children of military men and women
serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. He basically went to
the library and checked out a book about how to twist
balloons. "Just started twisting them and popped a lot
of balloons along the way," said Ellingwood, who
learned to make balloon animals and invested in a few
over-the-counter magic tricks. After a little practice, in
the spring of 2005, Ellingwood and his son Zane, then
6, set out to throw a birthday party for a military child.
"It was Zane's idea," Ellingwood said of his son, who
suggested the parties after hearing his parents talk
about a father who was being deployed to Iraq. Four
years and a couple of dozen parties later, father and son
are still a team, though the focus of the organization
has shifted a bit. A torch has been passed, in a manner
of speaking from son to father, not father to son.
"It's sort of evolved," said Ellingwood, who is putting
renewed energy into Littlest Heroes after struggling
with his health for the past year. "We're still a family
operation. (Zane's) not quite as dominant in the
organization as he was. And I've gotten more
interested in it. I'm getting more and more excited
about the whole thing." The last few weeks, the family
has been focused on Valentine's Day cards: Using an
assembly line of colored paper, magic markers, pipe
cleaners and stamp pads, they've created hundreds of
homemade cards to send to children who have an
absent military parent. They hoped to send 1,000. At
Easter time, they'll do it all over again. "The thing we
do most now would have to be the "care packages,"
Ellingwood said. "You can reach people across the
United States that way. A lot of these families, if they
don't live on the base, they're all alone." Sara Harrison
of Atlanta received a package a few weeks ago. The
wife of a Marine who is serving in Iraq, she has two
young children, including a 2-year-old son. "I watched
his eyes light up and his face glow as he saw his new
toys," Harrison wrote in a letter of gratitude to Littlest
Heroes. "... I hadn't seen my son that excited since his
dad left." Ellingwood hopes to start having fun fairs for
military and civilian families starting in April, with a
kickoff in Cumberland, and later fairs throughout
Western Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
Father and son plan to travel to Silver Spring for a
birthday party next month. Zane, like always, will
dresses a clown. "Maybe that's why I like it so much,
Ellingwood said. "We really get to do something
together."
