EXTENSION UPDATE



Dairy environmental



accountability


By Mary Sowerby,
UF Regional Dairy Exten-
sion


The largest loose-leaf
notebook I have ever seen ..
sat in front of Trenton dairy
producer Ron St. John at the
Feb. 12 meeting of the Man-
atee and Fanning Springs
working group. Its spine was
5.5 inches wide and another 3-inch
notebook sat on top of it. The
reams of paper found within those
two notebooks represented docu-
mentation of nutrient (think primar-
ily manure) management of one
herd -- Alliance Dairy, for one year
-2008.
Every dairy farm in Florida that
has 700 or more mature dairy cows
is. considered a CAFO (Concentrat-
ed Animal Feeding Operation). All
Florida CAFOs are required to have
a National Pollutant Discharge
Elimination System (NPDES) per-
mit to operate legally under the
Clean Water Act of 1972.
Dairies with less than 700 cows
are generally considered AFOs (An-
imal Feeding Operations) and are
not required to have a NPDES per-
mit. However, a new set of Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection
(DEP) rules are currently being
written for AFOs.
A crucial part of obtaining a
NPDES permit is a farm specific
niitrient management plan which
describes how a dairy will meet the
requirements of the NPDES permit.
The nutrient management plan de-
scribes the dairy (size, soil type,
topology, building arrangement,
surface water flows, etc.) and its
waste management system. It also
includes sections covering opera-
tion procedures, maintenance, and
..record keeping. ..
"The price tag, to assemble the in-
formation needed to obtain a i
NIPDES permit is generally over
$.60,000. It usually takes an envi-
rdnmental engineer to write it and it
is required to have an engineer sign
6ff on it. Then the never-ending
record keeping begins.
Found within the nearly nine-,


: inches of environ-
", wmentally-related
records for Al-
liance Dairy in
.2008 are:
c o* Irrigation well
logs well pump
start and stop
times, how many
gallons of water
were pumped from
each well each day and where the
water was applied;
Flow meter information for
each of 10 pivot irrigation systems
indicating how much lagoon (waste
water pond) or fresh water 'went on
each field and when;
Lab test reports of nutrients '
found in manure, compost, lagoon
water, soil, and forage samples;
Crop yields from every field;
Monitoring-well test results;
Information about pff-farm
waste applications and compost
sales;
Monthly and quarterly reports,
plus supporting information submit-
ted to DEP; and
Correspondence from DEP.
The nitrogen and phosphorus bal-
ance between what goes on the
ground of each field as manure or
commercial fertilizer and what is
absorbed by pasture grass or crops
is carefully monitored to avoid any
which would go into ground or sur-
face water. If a dairy produces more
nutrients in manure than its field
plants can use, then producers like
Ron St. John sell their manure as
compost or spread their manure on
other-farmers' fields atpredeter-
mined rates.
Whether a dairy farm has 3,600
cows mostly confined'in well-
cooled and comfortably-stalled
barns, as does Alliance Dairy, or
1,100 cowsy,whqspend their days
1and nihts outid' e on p.sture raz
Sing, as does Piedmont Dairy (also
owned by Ron St. John), the nutri-
ent balance on fields and pastures is
calculated and maintained.
Dairy producers are highly ac-
countable stewards of the environ-
ment in ways that are both labor in-
tensive and monetarily- expensive.

OPINION

A national controversy

I missed
by Dwain Walden
While driving to work today. I was lis-
tening to 4 country music. station, nd I
learned that fans are irate because the
group Rascal' Flats doesn't get the atten- ',
tion it/deserves at awards shows, even
though they are packing the concert halls.
I learned about this from a disc jockey who was talk-
ing with a country .
musiccommentator apparently in Nashville, Tenn.
From the tone of this interview, it sounded like the
U.S. Senate was about to hold special hearings on,the
matter. But this is the only time I have heard about the
issue. .
So I stopped at the coffee shop for breakfast and par-
ticularly paid attention to what was going on around me.
Nary a soul mentioned the potential of Rascal Flats fans
upsetting order in the universe via protests. What they
were talking about was the "stimulus package." And I'm
not sure everyone was on the same page. One fellow was
asked what he thought about the "stimulus package," and
he thought they were talking about the Sports Illustrated
swimsuit edition.
A And to illustrate that not all of the talk is about poll- ..
tics, two fellows agreed that there was no reason for
Noah to have put fish on the ark since they can swim
and besides, they didn't have aquariums back then.
Also, no one on the street was passing out petitions on
behalf of Rascal Flats. I thought this strange since coun-
try music is so'alive and essential in this area.
Now rm a country music fan, as well. And I've heard
some songs by Rascal Flats that I like. But whether they
win awards or not just doesn't rattle my lid. That goes for
any other "stars." If they are filling concert halls, then
they are making big bucks and the turnouts are "proof of
the pudding" that a lot of people like them. What more
award could one want, particularly in this economy?
Of course this commentator is getting paid to talk
about the music industry and like many people who earn
their living in such a fashion they embrace the "they say"
notion, which may be mostly their own'opinion with one
or two other people agreeing just to get the conversation
over. Suddenly the public is either irate or ecstatic.
It's all about time, place, motivation, depth of percep-
tion and marketing.
Let me put it another way: If three people at a coffee
shop in Ludowici said they thought Rascal Flats wasget-
ting slighted in this regard, the matter likely would nev-
er be heard beyond the next table. But if three people
call into a nationally syndicated radio show one from
Manhattan, Kan., one from Delight, Ark., and one from
Des Moines, Iowa and voiced basically the same senti-
ments, it could be made to sound like an M-80 firecrack-
er exploding in a 50-gallon drum, despite the fact that
297 million other folks don't give a tiny rat's patoot.
Yep, the alleged urgency of that broadcast was of the
tenor of someone having just reported that some bank of-
ficials had been taken hostage by taxpayers who discov-
ered that the bankers had used bailout money to have
portraits painted of all the board members. Yes, I know
that's facetious. Isn't it?
So driving home today, I listened to an "oldies" rock
station. And it suddenly hit me, they are not making
good oldies music anymore.

Hi, thiisis in response to the Rant & Rave writer
who says that they felt the Democrat should not pub-
lish negative remarks. I disagree with that; I think the
Democrat was right in publishing it and I applaud
them for that, f6r publishing everything without
screening material that's coming through Rant & Rave.
Freedom of speech is one-of our greatest rights and
thank you Democrat for publishing everyone's point of
view even if it may be offensive to some people. -- I
don't agree with what the people said about it being a
black Democrat, but I do applaud the Democrat for
publishing all of the comments regardless of their per-
sonal position on topics because freedom of speech is
one of our most important rights.

Editor's note: We do publish items regardless of our
personal views. It's not the case that we publish all the
comments we receive, however. Entries that do not
meet the guidelines spelled out each week at the begin-
ning and end of this column are discarded.

Where can a white young man who has excellent
work records, who does not drink, does not smoke,
does not chew, does not use illegal drugs of any kind,
who is dependable, what he doesn't know he can
learn? He needs a job in Suwannee County. He came
from Palm Beach County where he was making $15
an hour. And come up here and can't even find a job.
What's wrong Suwannee County; don't you ;appreciate
good, honest, hardworking men?

Eighty teachers could be cut ... wow. Well it is 'time
to do something no one wants to hear, it is time to cut
or suspend athletics. Education is more important than
athletics. I just can't see 80 teachers losing their jobs.
If anybody watches the news, a lot of schools through-
out the state of Florida have suspended all middle
school athletics and some high school programs. Ican
just wonder what it costs the school to run the pool. I
have been told $250,000 a year. That could be one
possible cut there. Anything that helps. We need to
keep our teachers in the classrooms.

Thank you to the city police for monitoring here on
Helvenston Street. There has been lots of speeders and
I noticed the other evening they had stopped several of
them. But, thank you again.

I'm so sick and tired of hearing about the Lake
Louise boat ramp why aren't we doing, why aren't we
doing it. The county is about to have to cut 80 jobs,
that should be our main concern, not whether we can
use the boat ramp or not. They are in such need of
moneys but they can build a $100,000 boat ramp any
time they please, that just sounds crazy to me. Not
good business ethics.

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

and please, take no more than 30-45 seconds for your
comments. Let us know what's bugging you.

Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak your mind!-
How? By calling the Suwannee Democrat Rant and

Note: In written entries to Rant and Rave, errors in

thors.

I am so tired of hearing people complain about the
boat ramp being put in at lake louis. How much will it
cost? Is it really a sad day when our county leaders
will put or leading money supply into a boat ramp in-
stead of putting it back into the school system with is
about to cut 80 jobs. SO lets think about it, our kids
schooling or a boat ramp. Witch do we need worse
suwannee county??

Why is it that the School Board is foreseeing signif-
icant staffing cuts and corporate America is slashing
jobs and budgets left and right, yet the City and Coun-
ty don't think anything about escalating salaries and
benefits? I will guarantee you that if any cuts are pro-
jected at the City and County that they are not related
to salaries.

I recently attended a county commissioners meeting. ',*
And it was really comical how one of the commission-
ers could turn around anything that was negative about
what he wanted to promote, whether the idea was
good or bad it was always, only about him. Why
everybody was against him? Not that his idea was not
worthwhile or the person he was trying to promote
was useless, but everything was' against him. Nobody
wanted him. It is the commissioner, it was hilarious.

I hope that the Suwannee County School Board can
* justify the 80 positions that it's going to cost to have a
winning football coach. I don't know. how they plan to
pull this off, but if they're going to have to cut 80 jobs,
I certainly hope the former Gator boy is worth his
weight in gold.

If Councilmen Ed Rewis and Mark Stewart thinks
it's a good thing to keep OMI, they should ride around
our town and look at the trash that stays by the streets
until it gets so dry. If someone thrown a match on it, it
would catch fire. Then they need to drive out to the
Live Oak Cemetery and look at the graves and slabs
and tombstones, at the dead grass that is on them. Be-
fore the man that was With the city for .42 years retired
you did not see trash on the streets or the cemetery
looking like it does. It is a shame and disgrace for the
loved ones of the people that is buried out in the
cemetery.

Yes, it's February 16th at 12:15. I just love the

around in his patrol car today in plain clothes with his

Fifth graders dissect owl pellets


You either love it or
you hate it ... science, that
is. Fifth grade students at
Suwannee Intermediate
School have been study-
ing skeletal systems in
life science classes re-
cently, and the "Owl Pel-
let Lab" has so far been a
real hit. Teachers received
owl pellets as part of their
science curriculum, and
the students dissected the
pellets in science class.
Their mission was to
identify bones of rodents
that were eaten, but not
digested, by the owl.
Many students were
lucky to find and be able
to identify many different
types of rodent bones. It
was common to hear,
"Here's a tibia!" or "I
found the fibula!" if you


visited the classrooms
during the.exploration.
Occasionally, a student
would proclaim,
"Eeewww! Gross!"
Some students even toolk
bones home to show off.


FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2009


We may have some future
CSI scientists among our
students! Discovery
activities are an important
part of classes at
Suwannee Intermediate
School.

Gov. Crist proclaims Tobacco Free Week

College and pro teams encourage Floridians to take tobacco free pledge


Gov. Charlie Crist has proclaimed Feb. 27 through
March 7 as Tobacco Free Florida Week to
promote smoke-free living while reminding tobacco
users of programs and support that are available to help
them quit. During Toba.co Free Florida Week, Floridi-
ans are encouraged to take the pledge to be tobacco free
on www.tobaccofreefloridaweek.com.
In partnership with FOX Sports Florida and Sun
Sports, pro and college teams around the state are rally-
ing behind the campaign. Throughout the week, Tobac-
co Free Florida will be the focal point of eight sporting
events for the following teams: Orlando Magic, Florida
Sate University men's basketball, Florida Marlins, Mi-
ami HEAT, Tampa Bay Rays, Florida Panthers, Tampa
Bay Lightning and University of Florida men's basket-
ball (see schedule below). Total attendance at the eight
events is projected to top 100,000 with the televised
games reaching millions more across the state on Sun
Sports and FOX Sports Florida.
"Tobacco Free Florida Week/presents a tremendous
platform for us to utilize our unique media assets, along
with those of our sports team partners across the state,
in a concenutated, highly-visible way and encourage
Floridians to pledge to be tobacco free," said Steve Liv-
erani, Sr. VP/GM of FOX Sports Florida & Sun Sports.,
"The consequences of tobacco use are well-documented
and we are proud to be part of this call to action pledge
campaign."
During the week, the Tobacco Free Florida Street
Team and Smokifier vans will travel around the state tor
spread the message, and host school rallies featuring
athletes from Florida's pro teams.

"Tobacco Free Florida Week is an opportunity to
unite Floridians against the leading cause of pre-
ventable illness, disability and premature death in Flori-
da," says. Kim Berfield, Deputy Secretary of the Florida
Department of Health. "By combining efforts of profes-
sional and collegiate teams, local C6unty Health De-
partments and other key tobacco prevention stakehold-
ers, we ,can further extend the reach of the campaign's
message."
To counter the advertising efforts bf tobacco compa-.
nies that spend more money on advertising in Florida
than in any other state, Tobacco Free. Florida's
statewide youth prevention advertising campaign will
also launch that week, with television, radio, cinema
and print ads across the state, encouraging youth to "Be
Free" from tobacco.
Smoking is responsible for upwards of 29,000
deaths in Florida each year, and thousands more suffer
from cancer, heart disease and other chronic diseases
related to tobacco use and second-hand smoke. Nearly
one out of every five adults smokes, and 28.8 million
packs of cigarettes are bought or srbked by youth in
Florida each ear e

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT GAMETIME


Facts



about



Indoor



Tanning


By Sallie A. Ford,
Environmental
Health Director,
Suwannee and
Lafayette County
Health Departments
With Spring
Break just around
the comer, the in-
door tanning indus-
try will be busy with many
people trying to get the
"perfect" tan. However,
before you head to the sa-
lon, there are some things
that you should consider.
Indoor tanning irrespon-
sibly now can have bad ef-
fects on your body later.
Tanning beds emit ultravi-
olet rays that can become
harmful if you are overex-
posed to them. This could
cause premature aging, and
possibly cancer. It is espe-
cially important to practice
responsible tanning if you
are young. You may not
realize the damage that can
be caused to your body
from too many ultraviolet
rays, and it may not show
up until later.
However, if you do
make the decision to tan
indoors, please note that
specific rules are in place
by the State of Florida to
regulate the facility that
you choose. It is very im-
portant that you know
some of these rules before
you,tan.
Requirements for


minors:
Children un-
der the age of
14 must be ac-
companied by
an adult in or-
der to use a tan-
ning device.
Minors under
the age of 18
must have the signature of
a parent or legal guardian
to use an indoor tanning
device. Parents should
make sure that children
also understand the possi-.
ble health risks of overex-
posure to ultraviolet rays.
License:
Make sure that the facil-
ity at which you are tan-
.ning is licensed through
the Suwannee County
Health Department. You
can check to verify this by
looking for a license dis-
played at the facility, is-
sued by the Health Depart-
ment. You can also call us
to check licensing at 386-
362-2708 x 256. Your tan-
ning facility operator also.
must be certified through a
course approved by the
Florida Department of
Health.
Warning signs:
Each person using a tan-
ning device must sign an
acknowledgment of the,
dangersof the use of ultra-
violet light. READ AND
UNDERSTAND WHAT
YOU SIGN!!


Tanning bed. Photo: Submitted


Make sure that you read
the warning signs posted at
the facility before you tarn.
Pay special attention to
these signs that give im-
portant user precautions.
These signs will be posted
in the areas where the tan-
ning devices are used. Also'
check the list of medica-
tions to avoid when tan-
ning. Make sure that you
are not taking these med-
.ications before you enter
the tanning device. Ask the
facility operator any ques-
tions that you may have
before tanning. Report any
injuries from using a tan-
ning device immediately to
the tanning facility opera-
tor.
Protective eyewear:
You must wear protec-
tive eyewear while tan-
ning. This eyewear needs
to be approved by the U.
S. Food and Drug Admin-.
istration. If you do not use
protective eyewear, this
can result in severe bulnms
or long-terth injury to your
eyes. Your eyes are very
sensitive!! Many tanning
salons offer eyewear for
sale, or they may offer you
a sanitized pair to use dur-
ing your tanning session.
Please feel free to call
the Enyironmental Iealth
Section at 386-362-2708 x
256 with any questions
that you may have regard-
ing indoor tanning.


Don't let tax time tax your mind and pocket.
Instead, trust these area experts to file your
taxes this year!

Give Far C
By Cody Webb

You have to give Far Cry 2
credit; it takes standard FPS
ideas and expands on them in
ambitious new ways. This
game is huge, and on top of
that, the world is open to you
to do as you see fit. Far Cry 2
was one of the games that
came out in the big flood of games at the
end of last year, and it's available for the
PS3 and the Xbox 360. It's rated M, for vi-
olence, blood and some'very foul lan-
guage.
FC2's greatest feat would be how aston-
ishing it looks. From the dense jungle to
the white sand of the desert, it's easily ap-
parent that Ubisoft Montreal put a lot of
work into the visuals. The sun's rays filter
through the trees as you make your way
through the lush underbrush, resulting in
the most amazing lighting effects I've ever
seen in a video game. The first-person me-
chanics work well, with cutscenes and all
actions occurring in first person. It's no
Mirror's Edge, but it will suffice.
It's a shame that more effort wasn't put
into balancing the game's world or trying
anything innovative with the combat. As I
said before, the game's world is big, and
you need one of the'game's vehicles to ef-
fectively travel to and from destinations.
Normally, this wouldn't be a problem (es-
pecially since driving the vehicles can be a
blast), but every few minutes you're forced
to fight a group of enemies. There are ene-
my checkpoints at almost every intersec-
tion and this makes it incredibly hard to
conserve ammo. This gets annoying and
repetitive, since all you want to do is get to
your objective and you don't want to run
out oflammo in the'middle of a mission!
The gunplay is by no means bad, it's
very tight and the wealth of weapons you.
can find and buy means you can tackle a
fight in just about any way you can think
of. Unfortunately, if you prefer stealth to
all-out fighting, you're out of luck until a
little before halfway through the game. The
upgrades that make stealth an available op-
tion are expensive and before that you
must unlock them. That's about it for the
gunplay, take cover, shoot, rinse, repeat.
FC2 does try to stand out by introducing
flammable environments; fires blossom
and spread along the grass, trees and,
wooden objects. The flames are even ef-
fected by the wind's speed and direction,


2 credit


but they tend to die out just a lit-
tie bit quick.
r A The biggest problems I have
| with Far Cry 2 are the enemy AI
and the aggrivating glitches.
There are times where the ene-
mies seem brilliant, flanking
around you and running you over
whenever they get the chance.
Then, all of a sudden they're
stricken with short-term memory loss, sud-
denly forgetting what they were doing.
Other times you can run right up on them
and they'll look at you without firing, giv-
ing you ample time to take them down.
Furthermore, they often sport the eyes of
an eagle after they've spotted you, able to
hit you from far away with whatever
they're using. It can be really unfair.
On the topic of glitches, there are several
unexcusable ones. I, myself, came upon
one that made me lose three partners all
because one of them died in the middle of
a fight. Every once in awhile you'll come
across an NPd that won't give you the
next part of a mission you're Working on,
so you have to reload a save file to retry
the whole thing. Luckily the game aut6-
saves after each objective gets complete....
but even that won't save you from the
game's worse glitch: the corrupted save
file glitch. It renders your save file com-
pletely unusable, resulting in you having to
start the whole game over. It's a good idea
to keep several extra save files on hand, es-
pecially towards the end of the game.
If single-player gets too boring or aggri-
vating, definitely try out the multiplayer.
It's pretty straight-forward, so anybody can
jump straight in. The biggest aspect of
multiplayer is the incredibly deep map edi-
tor. If allows you to create just about any
map you can dream of, from small towns
surrounded by jungles, to large open fields
for vehicular mayhem. People are creating
and releasing maps all of the time, and you
can spend hours just exploring new ones.
So to' sum it up: Far Cry 2 is visually ap-
pealing and the gunplay is solid, but you
can succumb to the boredom brought about
from the many unnecessary firefights. You
could also become victim to one of the ag-
grivating glitches that plague this game.
Far Cry 2 could've been great, but now it
must settle for above-average. If you're in-
terested init, you should rent it before you
buy it. If they release patches that fix the,
glitches, then this could get a B, but.for
now it gets a C+.

After 42 years in banking,


Claudia Brogdon calls it a career


Retiring today from
Jasper branch of B of A

By Jo Ross
Lifelong Suwannee County resident Claudia Brogdon is eagerly
anticipating opening a new chapter of her life, as she prepares for
her retirement from Bank of America today. A reception was held in
the lobby of the Jasper bank branch yesterday to honor her 42 years
in the banking industry.
"I will greatly miss all the customers and my fellow associates,
but I am looking forward to what lies ahead in my future. I am
looking forward to spending more time with family and friends,"
Brogdon told the Democrat. "I am very grateful to Mr. Crapps for
hiring me all those years ago and I valued his friendship. He is
greatly missed." .
Brogdon began her career in banking in October 1966, when Mr.
P.C. Crapps Jr. hired her as a bookkeeper in the Live Oak branch of
the First National Bank. Since that time she/has worked as a teller,
customer service representative and is currently a teller/coordinator.
She has been a welcoming face at the Jasper Branch since March
2001.
Brogdon has served the Live Oak, Lake City and Jasper branches
of Bank of America, although the ownership and name on the bank
has changed multiple times. In 1966 when Claudia first began her
career, the Bank was called the First National Bank of Live Oak.


Claudia Brogdon prepares for her retirement
from the Jasper branch of Bank of America

VFW to found post in Live Oak


The Veterans of Foreign Wars
is working to found a post in
Live Oak. The Florida VFW
District 2 will offer a chance for
veterans and active duty person-
nel, their family members and
the general public to learn more
about the organization. Members
of the district staff will be at the
Dixie Grill in Live Oak from 4-
6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 28
to greet and meet those interest-
ed.
To join, a veteran must have
served in a combat zone, com-
plete an application, present a
DD-214 or other document to


verify assignment in a combat
zone and pay the annual dues of
$25. The organization also has
support groups in the form of the
Ladies Auxiliary for wives,
mothers and daughters of the
veterans or active duty personnel
and the Men's Auxiliary for sons
and fathers.
The VFW also accepts eligible
members of other service organi-
zations, such as the American
Legion and tries to work with
those groups to promote youth
activities, patriotism and to pro-
vide assistance to veterans and
their families.


The VFW supports the efforts
,of the American Legion to pro-
vide health services for our vet-
erans through the Veteran's Ad-
ministration.
One big achievement of.the
VFW last,year was to have the
Montgomery G.I. Bill funded at
levels equal to those benefits re-
ceived by WWII veterans which
includes money for education,
'buying homes and other ser-
vices.
The VFW was founded by vet-
erans of the Spanish American
'War of 1898. Its purposes in-
clude offering comradeship to


veterans; assisting veterans, ac-
tive duty personnel and the fami-'
lies of both; promoting and pro-
tecting America, its constitution
and laws; and promoting patrio-
tism. To that end its programs in-
clude mentoring our youth; vet-
erans in the classroom; working
with Junior ROTC programs;
promoting patriotism through
programs such as the middle
school Patriot Pen essay contest
and the high school Voice of
Democracy speech; recognizing
community leaders, such as the
teacher of the year, law enforce-
ment, EMT And firefighter


awards; providing services to
veterans and their families, such
as aiding active duty service per-
sonnel families at home and
building handicap ramps on vet-
erans homes plus sending care
packages and providing tele-
phone cards to our service peo-
ple on active duty so they can
phone home.

Can I store things under my

AN It's not a good idea to store
anything in this closet. This area
is also the return air chamber
where air is being pulled back to the Air
Handler. If things block this return or get
sucked up into the coil it can cause
damage to your system. You never want
anything in or around the return, that is
toxic, it would be distributed through the

Impressive 5-year gains for Florida agriculture


J- W,-


The number of Florida
farms and the value of
Florida agricultural prod-
ucts sold rose substantially
from 2002 to 2007, ac-
cording to a report recent-
ly released by the U.S.
Department of Agricul-
ture.
Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson said the impres-
sive performance by the
state's agricultural indus-
try in the past five years
shows that it remains a vi-
tal pillar of Florida's eco-
nomic strength.
"For decades, this eco-
nomic engine has provid-
ed Florida with a depend-
able source of revenue and
jobs,'" Bronson said.
"While other sectors of the
economy have been on
shaky ground lately, agri-
culture has strengthened
and become more produc-
tive. This report about
Florida agriculture comes
at a time when we all real-
ly need some positive eco-
nomic news."
According to the USDA
Census of Agriculture, the
number of Florida farms
increased by 7.7 percent,
from 44,081 in 2002 to
47,463 in 2007. Addition-
ally, the market value of
agricultural products sold


Agriculture providing good economic news

during these challenging times, Bronson says


by Florida farmers hit
$7.8 billion in 2007, the
highest recorded level in
the state's history.
"These statistics are a
testament to the determi-
nation of our state's farm-
ers," Bronson said. "Even
when confronted by'
drought, hurricanes, pests,
disease, and stiff foreign%
competition, they continue
to plant, harvest, rebuild
and innovate. Florida's
farmers not only produce
food and fiber for con-
sumers, they provide a
solid economic base for
our state."
The USDA Census
shows that 90 percent of
Florida's farms are family
operations, while about 10
percent ate corporate enti-
ties. :About 32,000 Flori-
da farms, or approximate-
ly 70 percent, have 50
acres or less.
The report also reflects
that changing face of agri-
culture in Florida, with in-
creases in the number of
farms owned by a variety.
of ethnic groups including
Native Americans, Asians,
Hispanics and African

Americans. Ethnic owner-
ship of farms increased by
26 percent, from 2,038
farms in 2002 to 2,582
farms in 2007.
Augmenting the results
of the USDA Census is
the University of Florida's
report, "Economic Contri-
butions of Agricultural,
Food Manufacturing, and
Natural Resource Indus-
tries in Florida in 2006,"
which indicates that more
than 766,000 jobs are at-
tributable to these sectors,
up from 648,000 jobs in
2002, Additionally, these
sectors generate an esti-
mated $100 billion overall
economic impact and con-
tribute $2.98 billion in in-
direct taxes to local, coun-
ty and state governments.
"While .the USDA re-
port indicates an overall
expansion of Florida agri-
culture, it also raises some
points of concern," Bron-
son said. "Farmers' net.
earnings, or incopne, de-
clined significantly for the
last three years surveyed.
This means that our farm-
ers are working harder for
less return, due in part to


increases in the cost of in-
puts such as fuel, electric-
ity, seed and fertilizer."
The USDA Census
showed that net earnings
declined from 40 percent
in 2005, to 29.8 percent in
2006, to 22.1 percent in
2007.

outside of the business
were key in identifying the
vehicle that was used in
the robbery along with pro-

An undetermined

ry were taken.
The suspects fled west
on Howard Street in a gray
compact car with tag num-
ber LLW-384. A search for
, the Florida tag came up
empty.

the Suwannee County
Sheriffs Office and ad-
vised them a patrol
sergeant had stopped a sus-
picious vehicle on 1-75
*about a mile south of 1-10
at about 1 p.m.
During the traffic stop
the office found property
stolen from the jewelry
store inside the vehicle.
Detectives from LOPD re-
sponded to the scene and
determined that the jewelry


recovered in the vehicle
did in fact come from the
Live Oak Jewelry Store,
reports indicate.
. Charged with two counts
of robbery with a gun, two
counts of armed kidnap-

robbery, no other such in-
cidents occurred Wednes-
day, a spokesperson for the
Live Oak Police Depart-
ment told the Democrat
yesterday. But here's how
the bank robbery rumor
may have gotten started.
Soon after the robbery,
police received a tip that a
vehicle matching the de-
scription of the getaway
car had been seen at a
home on Helvenston
Street. The car turned out
not to be the one in ques-
rtion,-but-bOPE) office. ,
and SWAT team members
from the sheriffs office
surrounded the home as a
precaution anyway. A


nearby bank was advised
to lock its back doors until
the situation was.resolved,
though the front doors of
the institution remained
open. On seeing armed of-
ficers in the area, rumors
immediately spread that
the bank had been robbed.
'"There was no one else
robbed," LOPD\Det. Sgt.
Ron Shaw said Thursday
morning. "Due to the close
proximity to that institu-
tion, they locked (most of
their) doors for the safety
of the customers and em-
ployees."
! Rumors of other busi-
nesses in town being
robbed, including a local
restaurant, were false as
well.

Childhood



memories


By Jimmy A. Cherry II
As a juvenile probation officer in
Suwannee County, I work with youth
all day, so I know how, important it is
for the youth in our area to be in-,
volved in the Police Athletic League.
I was a member of P.A.L. between
1993 and '97. Between those times I
have plenty of fun childhood memo-
ries being in P.A.L. I played basketball
during off season at Suwannee High
School. We played all over North
Florida and played great competition.
P.A.L. taught me to stay physically fit,.


teamwork and respect for my commu-
nity. I made lasting friendships with
fellow teammates: Kenny Hankerson,
Antwon Jones, Leroy Smith and a host
of others. We see each other today and
reminisce about the program.
There were great but few adult role
models that invested their time in the
program. People like my dad, Jimmy

of the program which was established
in 1992 andcoaches for P.A.L.), Roy

COMMENTARY

Stop


bashing


A-Rod

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels .
You have to
go some to be
blasted by
MSNBC and
Fox News in the -
same night. The
stock market has
dropped 1,000 points since A-
Rod said he used steroids.
Despite concerns as to his
birthplace, he was born in New
York City, a real US citizen. He
pals around with Angel
Presinal, a banned trainer, and
a cousin who looks for over the
counter banned drugs. You
would think he pals around
with terrorists while his cousin
looks for WMDs. Alex
Rodriguez is a baseball player,
as are Brady Anderson,
Sammy Sosa, Jason Giambi
and 103 other players who
tested positive for performance
enhancing drugs.
Alex has obviously told
some half-truths. "Read my
lips, no new taxes" and "I
never had sex with that
woman," these statements are,:
obviously half lies? What do
SI, ESPN; MLB, FBI and
anything else with initials want
from this guy? Didn't someone
else say on Letterman 'I
screwed up." A-Rod has lost
the keys to the Hall of Fame.
Would a pound of flesh better
suffice? The guy has some
personality flaws but they pale
by comparison to Barry Bonds.
If he sat down and gave a list ,
of names and addresses he
would be painted with the
same broad brush as Jose
Canseco.
Why do we demand more
truth from a guy who dates
Madonna than people called
before Congress. Miguel
Tejada with his 8th grade
Dominican Republic education
is forced to apologize to
Congress for lying about
steroids, and cabinet members
ignore subpoenas or simply
take the fifth. The A-Rod stuff
has gone on too long and too
much. The guy was 100.
percent wrong, a total jerk,
reckless with the truth, etc., etc.
He has'no vote on the stimulus
bill, and as far as I know, no
pictures of him smoking dope.
Baseball has banned Pete
Rose for life due to gambling
but allows Daryl Strawberry
and Doc Gooden, two
convicted dope heads, to go to
spring training every year as
instructors. Obviously
basketball is not filling the void
between football and baseball
very well. Everyday is another
A-Rod story and obviously I
am another one. I promise you
this guy will not be the last guy
to come forward, but he might
be the best.
Don't feel sorry for A-Rod.
Short of murder (O.J.
Simpson) and rape (Mike
1Tyson) A-Rod will always
have a job. With his lack of
memory, ability to spin the
truth, social agenda, and self-
martyrdom, a future in cable
TV is out there. Unfortunately
his ability to hit, hit with
power, run, throw and field
will be tainted. "Oh what a
tangled web weave when we
practice to deceive."

FWC names its 2009


Officer of the Year


He pulled a woman from a burning car
and saved her life. He's assisted in captur-
ing a suspected murderer. He's arrested
people for night hunting, illegal fishing, lit-
tering,0drug possession and active felony
warrants. He wrote 168 citations and warn-
ings in 2008, which is impressive for the
rural county where he works.
And now, Officer Bret Gill has been se-
lected as the 2009 Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's (FWC) Divi-
sion of Law Enforcement Officer of the
Year.
In 2005, Gill started his career with the
FWC in Union County.
"He has earned the respect of the citizens
he serves through proactive and responsive
law enforcement services and hard work," .
said Capt. Roy Brown, area supervisor.
"Officer Gill possesses a uniquely patient
investigative style that has proved very suc-
cessful. If he catches a whisper of a possi-
ble resource violation, he doggedly pursues
all leads, leaving no stone unturned."
The variety of Gill's impressive caseload
further demonstrates his initiative and abili-
ty to get the job done, Brown explained.
Gill was traveling to Tallahassee for Spe-
cial Operations Group (SOG) training when
he saw two Florida Highway Patrol troop-
ers attempting to arrest a subject who was
violently resisting, Brown said. One troop-
er's hand was broken during the fray, and
Gill's assistance made the difference in
gaining control of the situation.
Before spring turkey season began, Gill
was flying with Pilot Joe Johnston and lo-
cated a site baited for turkeys with a blind
close by. Because the site was so remote, he
had to walk more than three miles to get to
it. On opening morning of the spring gob-
bler season, he cited a subject for hunting,
turkey over bait.
"Officer Gill assisted the Union County
Sheriff's Office with' a manhunt for a mur-
der suspect. After tracking the suspect for
over a mile, he and a Department of Cor-
rections K-9 officer captured the suspect,"
Brown said.
The officer also works complaints from.
landowners. Gill received a complaint from
Plum'Cibek Timber Company -of illegal
dumping on its lands. Gill investigated the
complaint and charged a suspect with
felony littering.


"During the Fourth of July holiday, Offi-
cer Gill, accompanied by Officer Billy
Giles, successfully rescued four children
who were tube-floating down the Santa Fe
River after they became separated from
their parents. The officers located the kids
several miles downriver and returned them
to their very appreciative parents;" Brown
said.
The new officer of the year thrives on be-
ing in the woods. Gill arrested three sub-
jects night hunting who had a doe deer in
their possession. He was then able,to learn
through a thorough interview that the trio
'had killed another doe and had left it in ithe
woods down the road. The landowner was
very appreciative, as he had beeri experi-
encing ongoing problems with illegal hunt-
ing.
In November, Gill received information
of illegal hunting activity occurring on a
piece of private land in Union County. Gill
made his way to the hunt camp on foot and
set up surveillance. After the morning hunt,
four hunters returned to the camp. One
hunter was on an ATV dragging a doe deer.
Gill overheard one of the men say he had
shot another doe and then left to retrieve it.
A few minutes later the man returned with,
the doe deer in tow. Gill then made his
presence known 'and charged two subjects
with taking doe deer out of season. A third
subject had warrants issued out of Arkansas
for his arrest, and the authorities there
wished to extradite. He also had a felony
warrant issued out of Union County. The
man was taken into custody.
"While he was making this case, Bret
was watching the men so intensely from his
concealed position that he overlooked the
five-foot rattlesnake he sat down next to. If
not for the cold weather that morning, the
snake would surely have bitten him,"
Brown said.
Gill also saved a life. On July 18, the of-
ficer was off duty and in his personal vehi-
cle traveling through Lake Butler, when he
saw a woman running toward him in her
nightgown.'The woman told him about a
'vehicle that crashed and was on fire down
tie-tr&et.
' Gill made his way around the corner and
found a pickup truck that had struck a pow-
er pole and-was on fire., He called 9-1-1 for
assistance and then ran through a crowd of


Officer Bret Gill is the FWC's Officer of
the Year for 2009. Photo: FWC

spectators to the blazing vehicle to find the
driver pinned in the vehicle, burning.
Gill determined the driver was dead. He
then went to the passenger side and found a
woman alive, gasping for air, and flailing
about the cab. Her legs were on fire. Gill
forced the door open and pulled her out of
the burning vehicle. He then rolled her on
the ground repeatedly to extinguish the,
flames.
As Gill was doing what he could to aid
the victim, the vehicle exploded.
"Apparently, the gas tank and ammuni-
tion stored in truck exploded," Brown said.
"There were several bystanders who said
they wouldn't have thought of going near
the truck because they knew it was going to
explode."
The woman was flown to Shands Bum
Center in critical condition.
,In the days following the accident, the
victim, Michelle Davis Brannen, 28, of
Macclenny, underwent surgery to amputate
both her legs. She continues to improve and
make progress toward recovery.
"Michelle, her family and community
have repeatedly thanked Bret for his a'-
tions. And thanks to him, on Jan. 6,
Michelle celebrated her 29th birthday,"
Brown said. "His actions were above and

That bunch

of seaweed

on the beach

teems with life
When walking the belch this
spring break, pause and ponder the
virtues of stranded seaweed. Those
scattered clumps along the high-
tide line actually have a name -
beach wrack and are a pivotal
part of the beach ecosystem.
"Many might think sand'makes a
beach, but it's the wrack that truly
brings a beach to life," said Blair
Witherington, a Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservatign Commission
S(FWC) biologist who studies beach
life. "It sponsors some of the most
appealing things that beaches offer,
and it's also the best place to find
seashells and other seaborne cu-
riosities."
Beaches can be barren places
without their wrack because-the
nutrients, moisture and protection
provided by a good wrack line
bring unique life to this "desert."
Beach .wrack is both living room

Childhood



memories



of RP.A.L.


Continued From Page 1B

Duncan Sr., Abraham
Robinson and Terry and
Melissa Brinson. The
worked miracles for P.A.L.
with their tireless dedica-
tion.
P.A.L. will always have
a special place in my heart
because it gave high risk
kids a chance to. be in a
structured program.
Not only did P.A.L. staff
care for you at the Dou-
glass Center, but they also
aided in your personal life.
One of those youth that
had success in the program
is Leslie J. McDaniel II.
McDaniel said P.A.L. kept
her straight and taught her
how to make the choices
in life.
"As a youth growing up,
in Live Oak, P.A.L. kept


me going in the right di-
rection," said McDaniel.
"Coach Cherry instilled in
us to make the right choic-
es early in life and to al-
ways think positive."
I thank God the program
was established in my
teenage years and it con-
tinues to flourish today. I
encourage parents to con-
tact Gary Edwards at 386-
364-2906 if you want your
child to have great memo-
ries of recreational sports.

and buffet table for a host
of fascinating animals.
Look carefully to find
swift-footed ghost crabs,
pearl-colored beach tiger
beetles, or birds, such as.
ruddy turnstones and the
rare and elegant piping
plover. ,
Beach wrack consists of
sea grass, reeds and ma-
rine algae that have drifted
at sea before washing'
ashore, especially after
storms. After landing on
kiry land, beach wrack be-
comes host to a diverse
cast of insects and other
tiny invertebrate animals,
such as jumping beach
hoppers, which are harm-
less rice-sized crustaceans.
The tiny animals, in turn,
serve as food for many
other creatures. Migrating
shorebirds fly thousands of
miles each year'to munch
on the nutritious meals
found in that clump of sea-
weed. Wrack also provides
a safe haven for many ani-
mals that escape predators
by hiding under it or by
blending in with it. A
shorebird can "disappear"
while napping among the
similarly colored shades of
seaweed browns and
grays.
Beach wrack also is crit-
ical to the health of the


Premium Brai
Affordable Pr


dunes by providing plant
nutrients and stabilizing
windblown sand. The
wrack carries seeds from
many dune plants, such as
beach morning glory and
sea rocket. As sand builds
up and the seeds within
the beach wrack take root,
new dunes grow.v,, -i r ,,,' ,>,
On some beaches, the
sand is machine-raked,
.new dunes are manicured
away and the wrack is re-
moved. These efforts cost
taxpayers, but there is a
price paid by the beach
system as.well. A natural
wrack line is a key compo-
nent of a healthy beach -
ecosystem.
"While a natural beach
may not look as manicured
as a raked beach, the di-
versity and richness of a
natural, functioning beach
is infinitely more interest-
ing than the sterile land-
scape of one that is
groomed," said Nancy
Douglass, a biologist who
monitors shorebirds for the
FWC.
Instead of kicking aside
that clump of seaweed on
the beach this year, stop
and enjoy the huge benefit
provided by one small
piece of wrack.
"A beach without wrack
is like a gallery without
art," Witherington said.

Orlando SpeedWorld. After a very

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
(FWC) Division of Law Enforce-
ment completed the process to at-
tain accreditation and received
recognition for this achievement
today in a ceremony in Tampa.
The division voluntarily pursued
this coveted status.
By becoming an accredited
agency, the FWC's Division of
Law'Enforcement becomes the
largest natural resource law en-
forcement agency in the nation to
achieve this level of distinction,
and joins an elite group of fish
and wildlife enforcement agencies
that have successfully completed
the accreditation-assessment
process.
Florida law enforcement accred-
itation is certified by an indepen-
dent reviewing authority, the Com-
mission for Florida Law Enforce-
ment Accreditation (CFA). A law*
enforcement agency must meet or
exceed more than 250 prescribed
standards. An assessment team
conducted on-site inspections of


teams get ready for March 13,
there will be an open practice this
Saturday, Feb. 28, from 10 a.m. to
5 p.m. Cost will be $10 per person.
Safety inspections will be done on
all cars at open practice for the
new season.
On March 7, at our sister track
New Smyrna Speedway, they will
also hold an open practice from 10


the division's policies, procedures,
practices and equipment to deter-
mine compliance.
"This tells the public that we
have been evaluated by law en-
forcement subject-matter experts
who certified our compliance with
best management practices," said
Col. Julie Jones, director of the di-
vision. "Though we receive vali-
dation of our professionalism
every day from citizens whom our
officers have helped, this extra
validation makes it official."
In 1993, Florida Statute 943.125
directed that the Florida Sheriffs'
Association and the Florida Police
Chiefs' Association create a volun-
tary law enforcement accreditation
program.
"In an agency where the officers
multitask in so 'many environ-
ments, and conduct themselves so
professionally, it may come as a
surprise to many that the FWC's
Division of Law Enforcement was
not accredited," said Rodney Bar-
reto, chairman of the FWC. "We
have always been proud of our

Receiving the endorsement
demonstrates a commitment to

creases the division's ability to
fulfill its, mission of protecting

cient delivery of law enforcement

r Mind and Your Body

Just as we can change the direction of
a stream by digging channels in the
earth, so too can we change the
direction of our lives by developing our
minds and bodies. Just as an arrow
must have straight fletchings in order
to fly straight, so too must we have a
properly developed mind and body..

matter of primary importance. Do
we work to develop our intellect,
or do we fill it with whatever
happens to be present at hand?
Do we read-books, magazines;
and newspapers that are likely
to teach us something, or is
our reading primarily just a
diversion??Do we try to learn
from those around us or are
we more interested in the
latest gossip?? And, we should
realize that it's not just about
our minds. We cannot have a
healthy mind in a sick or
decrepit body. Do we take efforts to eat
right, exercise, get enough sleep and
avoid toxins? If we do not develop our
mind and body properly, then we are
squandering our greatest resource: our
S ,. very self.


loins of your minds, be sober, and rest
the grace that is brought to you at the
nation of Jesus Christ.

The importance of being chosen


By Angie'Land
Remember how much
you wanted to be picked
for the team when you
were a kid? I grew up with
a cousin who was great at
every sport. He could run
the fastest and kick the ball
farther than anyone on our
playground. That meant he
always got to be a captain
no matter what we played.
I wasn't jealous though, it
actually worked out good
for me, because when he
was captain, I knew I
would be one of the first


Heart

Matters
By Angie Land


ones chosen for his team,
not because I was a great athlete,
but because we were family, and he
looked out for me.
We all understand the importance
of being chosen; for the team, for
the job, or by that special person we
want to spend the rest of our life
with, it makes us feel valuable.
In Ephesians 1:4, the Bible gives
us clearly the foundation of our
worth:
"For He (God) chose us in Him
before thecreation of the world to
be hply and blameless in His sight."'
; Being chosen because of our abil
cities. our looks, or what we can
bring to the table might temporarily


make us feel impor-
tant, but what happens
when our abilities start
to wane with age or
illness and our looks
are not what they used
to be. What happens
when we don't have so
much to offer? God
chose us for a totally
different reason: He
loves us, and He has
much to offer. Like my
cousin picking me for
the team, God doesn't
choose us because we
are the best, but be-
cause He is and we are


valuable to Him.
This verse tells us that he chose
us to be holy. This word does not
mean perfect or sinless, it means set
apart for a relationship with God for
a specific purpose. Ephesians 2:10.
adds, "For we are God's workman-
ship, created in Christ Jesus to do
good works, which He has prepared
in advance for us to do." That is
great news! Not only are we chosen,
we also do not have to spend the
game sitting on the bench! God has
:something prepared for all of us to
do, a plan and a purpose for our life
that fits us, no matter what our abili-
ties are.
The second part of this verse says


that we are to be blameless in His
sight. Doesn't that sound good and
impossible?
"Blameless in His sight" is a re-
minder that our relationship with
God comes only through Christ,
who died for our sins and paid the
price for them. He did that because
we are valuable to Him, and He
wants you and me on His team. Be-
lieve that your heart matters!
Blessings,
Angie

Social Security statement helps Americans save


ByDonna Maitland
Social Security District Manager,
Gainesville, Florida

More than 100 national groups and hundreds of local
organizations recently participated in America Saves
Week. Social Security was proud to be one of them.
For years, Social Security has been encouraging Amer-
icans to plan and save for retirement through the Social
Security Statement. Social Security began mailing State-
ments to people who requested them in August 1988.

prepts for individual growth ad improvement in
our community relationships and social justice.
h It is certainly that aind much more, but this
'Lenten study will focus on Christ add His ultimate
plans for us. 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 body. (Romans 8:19, 22)
These classes will be presented by Andy Decker.


Statement by mail.
You probably receive one yourself, every year, about
two to three months before your birthday. But do you
take the time to review it? You should. Here's what it
will give you:
An estimate of your monthly retirement benefit at age
62, full retirement age, and age 70;
An estimate of the monthly benefit you could be enti-
tled to if you become disabled;
An estimate of the monthly benefit your family could
receive if you die.
That's valuable information when it comes to planning
your financial future. The Statement also gives you the
opportunity to review your earnings to make sure they've
been reported correctly to the IRS.
But yoy don't have to rely on the Statement alone to
make your future retirement plans. Social Security's Re-
tirement Estimator is an online tool that allows you to try
out different retirement scenarios. Just plug in some
quick information and you'll get estimates of your future
benefits based on your personal earnings record. Try it
out at httpi//www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator.
