By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
A public hearing on Sunday alco-
hol sales in Suwannee County has a
local businessman worried that


sweeping changes may be in the
works. The hearing was called to
close a loophole in the regulations,
but James Cornett, Spirit of Suwan-
nee president and CEO, fears it will
qpen the door to banning Sunday al-
cohol sales altogether.

About 25 Ford Model T's traveled through Live Oak recently. Members of the North Florida Tour-
ing T's had lunch' at the Dixie Grill after starting out in Madison. When touring, club members
travel about 100 miles a day in cars that only go about 35 miles per hour. First year travelers
with the Touring T's are Dr. Rod and Carol Marcom of Jacksonville. They are pictured here with
their 1915 machine.

EXTENSION UPDATE



March is Nutrition Month


By Bonnie Box, Family Nutrition
Program Assistant,
Suwannee County
Extension Office UF/IFAS

March is the month we cele-
brate good nutrition; however, ,
good nutrition should be an
everyday goal. If you have not
given yourself and your family
the gift of good nutrition and a
healthy lifestyle yet, then I chal-
lenge you to do so.
Deciding to live a lifestyle that
is healthier can be achieved by tak-
ing small steps. The first change you
can make is to take the unhealthy
gnaicks that are readily available and
replace them with better choices
such as fresh fruit and vegetables,
nuts, whole grain snacks, dried fruit,
yogurt and cheeses. When hunger
hits, keeping these low-fat, low-sug-
ar and high-fiber foods can really
,give you the advantage in your new-:
ly chosen lifestyle. These wholesome
Snacks are good for everyone be-
cause they are not empty calories,
but pan be a boost for those trying to
inaintain or lose weight by helping
them feel fuller while cutting the
Number of calories.
With our economic crunch,
stretching a food dollar is another
very important factor. Good nutrition
doesn't have to be expensive.
Stretching your food dollar can be
easily achieved by buying in bulk
and repackaging portion-size snack
packs. Label them and include calo-
ries, fat, grams, fiber and protein so


that you are
I aware of what.
you are putting
in your mouth.
Another
healthy lifestyle
S change is adding
physical activity.
. B This is how you
can improve not
only yourself,
but your family
in ways you may
not have even
considered. Not only are you helping
your family achieve better health,
you're also strengthening those im-
portant relationships. With the busy
day-to-day activities, combining
family time with physical activity is
a time saver. Being creative while
planning family functions does not
need to be costly. We have great re-
sources here in Suwannee County so
take advantage of them. For a great
out-door back-to-nature experience,
check out Suwannee River State
Park; it is a beautiful park and offers
great family activities. Suwannee
Parks and Recreation is another great
source for outdoor activities. It of-
fers multiple parks, in fact there are
21 parks throughout Suwannee
County offering play grounds, picnic
tables, boat ramps and even covered
.shelters and closed-in facilities.
For the month of March, the
Suwannee River Regional Library
will have a nutrition display cele-
brating National Nutrition Month.
The display will offer materials with


information to expand your knowl-
edge of nutrition and give you nutri-
tional facts and values that are need-
ed for a balanced diet. In addition,
the Library is a great place to spend
quality family time. They offer great
programs for all ages, and checking
out books and/or different media is
much more economical than pur-
chasing them.
No matter what your age, it's nev-
er too late to implement a healthy
lifestyle that includes healthy foods
and physical fitness., For more infor-
mation about National Nutrition
month or other ways to stretch your
food dollar, contact Bonnie Box,
Family Nutrition Program Assistant
at the Suwannee County Extension
Office UF/IFAS at 386- 362-2771.
You also have a wealth of infor-
mation at your finger tips on line at
http://mypyramid.gov. All programs
and related activities sponsored for,
or assisted by, the Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences are open
to all persons with non-discrimina-
tion with respect to race, creed, col-
or, religion, age, disability, sex, or

quiring special accommodations,
please contact our office at least five

presents CCS with
a tree in honor of
Florida Arbor Day
Comprehensive Community Services (CCS), an
organization that works with adults with develop-
mental disabilities in our community received a do-
nation of a Bottle Brush tree from the Live Oak Gar-
den Club in honor of Florida Arbor Day, The tree
will grace the backyard of their client day center and
help provide some shade and color to the landscape.
The center is located on Gold Coast Boulevard. The
back of the building where clients can enjoy the out-
doors, unfortunately, faces due south and is subject-
ed to full sun all day. ,
. CCS and Garden Club's vision is to provide out-
door facilities whereby clients can enjoy picnic
lunches, do art/craft projects that would be too
messy indoors, and encourage clients to recreate and
appreciate the outdoors. Money was raised and a
concrete pad was constructed, but additional funds
are needed to put a roof over the pad. Contact Bob-
bie.Lake, CCS Director, at 386-362-7143 if you can
help in any Way to make this dream come true!

OUR

The Big Read was a big
hiti Thanks, Danny Hales
and staff, for a'February full
pf fun at the Suwannee River
Regional Library.
The Maltese Falcon and
other mysteries were the f6-
cus, but the Big Read went
way beyond books. Classic
film noir titles were screened,
and a police detective even
showed us how crime scenes
are preserved and real mys-
teries solved.
Capping it all off was a se-
ries of Suwannee County
mysteries, with clues printed
weekly in the Democrat. The-
clues were just right. Hard
enough to be of interest to
adults, easy enough for the
kids to solve too.
Good job, Danny. (Thanks,
too, to the Natiohal Endow-
ment for the Arts for funding
the thing.)
Being in the news busi-
ness, we have a special inter-
est in literacy. But then
again, so do you; folks.

body reads.

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 hot-
line 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 re-
spectful way. .
Note: In written entries to Rant and Rave, errors in spelling,
\grammar or punctuation are those of the authors.
I'm sick of the people in Suwannee county who actually think
80 teachers may get laid off because we have a newv football
coach. A high school'football coach does not make a lot anyway
and if he turns out good teams and fills the 6,000-seat-stadium like
'Mike Pittman did then that's a lot of money going into the school
system. Football pays for most of the other sports anyway.
This is for the fellow from Palm Bch. Cd., welcome to Suwan-
nee Co. Ya'lU ain't got the 'qualeefications needed here 'bouts. It
only matters who yer kin to or what church ya atten. Onliest'folks
round here making' that kinda cash are politickers an "poor" farm-
ers.
What is bugging me, you ask? How about the fact that children
are having their education stolen while we continue to vote in for
new roads and even new airport terminal. What about the fact
that 3 million was taken out of our schools in the 2008-2009
school costing our' Pr6-K students to not be allowed to attend
:school. How about how another 80 jobs are looking at being cut
again. Yet we are voting to have roads paved that work fine, air-
ports having terminals put in, and the list goes on. Now we are
asking our Girl Scouts to raise their fees to pay for this airport ter-
minal? What lows we have come to. If we raise anything it should
' :not be at the expense of our children!
I want to know why the schools systems print out a monthly
schedule for their cafeteria/lunchroom and do not go by it. How
do we know if our kids are getting the food that they ask for and
want toVeat. Because they don't go by the schedule so therefore we
don't know if they'll actually the food they are given that day.
With the school board in need of cutting teachers why don't
they look at their school board members. who are making more
than the beginning teacher's salary? What do these people actu-
ally do, but meet once or twice a month? Couldn't we take'their
$30,000 plus dollar job and turn it into every meeting you get a
$100 or $200? What do they do in the summer to constitute that
money? Do they ever come in and teach in our classrooms? You
have Julie Ulmer who is a certified teacher who's getting paid as
much as a teacher to stay home and do noth-
ing. We need to .look at those school board
members and cut their salaries.
I'm responding to the person who called
about the county school board' running the
pool. The pool is run by the county recreation
department not the, school board, so closing the 1
pool would not generate any funds for the
school board. Also they need to look at ,the
supplements.of the smaller athletic teams ver-
.sus the supplements of the larger athletic teams
and see that you get more for your money
when someone-coaches the smaller teams..
In response to our mayor's recent opinion ar-
ticle on his attempt at humor to lighten things
up. I see no levity in the near panic state our
country, state and county are, facing. I think i
this space could be better used to assure our
citizens of everything that is being done to


help them put food on the table, a roof over their heads and a job.
Why not use this space in the paper to applaud our local heroes
such as our teachers, firefighters, police and paramedics. There
are many selfless giving common folk that are angels among us.
Let's give them a pat on the back and an atta boy to boost their
morale. Personally, I don't care if the mayor has a new faucet.
Will any of our city councilman ever admit OMI was a mis-
take? They have literally cost the taxpayers of this city millions.
In our present economic situation we cannot afford this luxury.
When every government agency is asked to tighten it's belt OMI
will continue with out of scope projects. Three of our city coun-
cil members will continue to give them a blank check and bury
their heads in the sand.
Someone keeps complaining about athletics in our school sys-
tem. I believe the earth is 6,000 years old, Darwin only has a the-
ory and global warming is a myth. I say we get rid of the science
program. And while we are at it that John Phillip Souza guy is
way overrated let's get rid of the music department. We don't need
any more wars so dump ROTC. With all the money we save,
maybe we can hire 80 more people to work at the school board
office. Oh I forgot they have to retire and get their drop money
first.
People complain about not having children and having their tax
dollars go to education. I have .two responses.. Did you complain
when you went to school? I didn't want my tax money to go to-
wards killing Iraq citizens. Seems neither one of us had a choice.
No more socialism Get rid of the fire department and the po-
lice. No more public highways. Who needs a whole village to
raise a child?
I would like to compliment our new Superintendent on not sug-
ar coating our situation. I would like to see some accounting of
how' our pre% ious administration spent money. Their are more
people at the county office then are needed and they are paid more
than any teacher. Continue to cut the fat and frivolous spending
that have nothing to do with our children. When people complain
about sports, art, and music they should take a longer look at what
administrators spend our money on. The perks and what they feel
they are entitled to would;amaze you.
Mr Sportabout you missed Kerwin Bell when you were talking
about Suwannee Valley pro football players.

Ex-convict scams prisoners, say police


Staff

A Live Oak man was arrested
Monday for allegedly using
forged documents to cash checks
written to state prisoners. James
Franklin Dowling, 57, of 19335
124th St., was arrested and
booked into the Suwannee
County Jail on charges of forgery,
uttering a forgery and grand theft.
Police say that on Feb. 23,


Dowling went to a local
convenience store, J&K Food
Store at the intersection of North
Ohio Avenue and Winderweedle
Street, and presented the clerk a
U.S. Treasury check in the
amount of $5,665.35 made out to
Thomas L. White.
The back of the check bore the
signature of Dowling and the
words "White L. Thomas."
. Dowling also presented the clerk


a power of attorney for White.
Dowling allegedly gave the store
clerk $1,000 to cash the check.
Police say they later determined
that White is a prisoner at
Jefferson Correctional Institution,
from which Dowling had been
released last August. White
denied giving Dowling .
permission to act on his behalf,
police say.
On Monday, say police,


Dowling returned to the store and
presented the clerk with another
U.S. Treasury check, this one in
the amount of $6,023.43, and
made out to Stanley M. Benner.
Dowling again presented a power
of attorney, police claim.
Authorities say that Benner is also
a prisoner at Jefferson
Correctional Institution.
Dowling remained in jail as of
Thursday.

My system is ten years old and
the compressor is bad, can I just
change the outdoor unit?


A Sometimes yes, however there
are a lot of variables that play in
to the mix. The majority of the
time you cannot. The best thing to do is to
change the complete system to get the
higher seer rating and also to get the
warranties. If that isn't in your budget, the
next best thing would to replace the
compressor.

A tradition of masonry


By Don Mott, secretary,
Hayward Lodge
Alton K. Williams Jr., and his son, Al-
ton K. (Buddy) Williams III, recently
viewed the name on the cornerstone of
Hayward Lodge #45 of Alton K.
Williams Sr. As any Mason will tell you
it is a special privilege to raise your son
in a fraternity that makes good men bet-
ter.
Alton K. Williams Sr. was born in
Georgia and moved to Florida in 1928.
He was active in agriculture and in the
Hayward Lodge. At the time the corner-
stone was.laid (1951) Alton Sr. held the,
office of Junior Warden and went on to
be Master of the lodge in 1953, 1957


and 1963.
As a boy, Alton Jr. watched his father
dress to go to lodge. He knew that as
soon as he was old enough he would
join, which he did in 1964 at the age of
21.
Alton Jr. spent 40 years in Law En-
forcement and retired as Sheriff of
Suwannee County. His son, Buddy,' has
spent 20 years in Law Enforcement and
is currently Chief of Police in Live Oak.
Both father and son are looking forward
to 2009 as Alton Jr. will be Senior War-
den and Alton (Buddy) the III will be Ju-
nior Warden. %
Alton Jr. was Master of Hayward
Lodge in 1971, 1997, 2008 and District
Deputy Grand Master in1981.

The First Annual Parent University was a hit!


-Parents and caregivers of stu-
dents at Suwannee Primary,
Suwannee Elementary, Suwan-
nee Intermediate and Branford
Elementary were invited to at-
tend the First Annual Title I Par-
ent University. When parents ar-
rived, their children went on to
watch a movie and enjoy pizza
in a separate area while parents
enjoyed refreshments and enter-
-tainment. The entertainment was
fantastic. Susan Roush on flute
and Tammy Michal on the piano
delighted the crowd with beauti-


ful music. The talented duo
charmed the large crowd with
their piano duet and set the stage
for an exciting, fun filled
evening.
After a short welcome from
Bill Yanossy, .Principal of
Suwannee Intermediate School,
and Suwannee County School
Superintendent, Jerry Scarbor-
ough, everyone was entertained
by Pam Lake as she gave the
parents a few tips on TOOLS
they can use as a parent. Lake is
a parent specialist from


FDLRS/Gateway.
Parents were then dismissed
to attend two workshops. The
parents had several workshops
from which to choose, including
Homework Help, Raising a
Reader, Every Day Math,
ADD/ADHD, Bullying Preven-
tion, Autism, and Computers.
The workshops were designed to
teach the parents how to help
their children in these specific'
areas. Each workshop also pro-
vided the parents with free re-
sources to use at home, as well


as door prizes.
The event ended with a draw-
ing for several door prizes. Gift
certificates were provided by
The Suwannee Democrat, The
Total You, and Big Daddy's. The
Suwannee County Schools Par-
ent Involvement Program pro-
vided several educational games
and supplies as door prizes.
The class with the most par-
ents in attendance from each
school won a class party and the
teacher received a gift certificate
from McCrimon's Office Sup-


ply.
Our thanks go out to the par-
ents and the caregivers who
came to The Parent University.
Your attendance shows that you
really care about your child's
education and are willing to go
the extra mile to help make your
child's education process easier,
and more successful.
Another Parent University is
already in the early planning
stages, and we look forward to
serving even more parents and -
caregivers.

Salute to Black History with one of our own


Andira Davis proves

to be a good neighbor

with a helping hand

By Audrey Howell,
Christian Mission' in Action President

One of our own Andra Davis #54 for the Cleveland
Browns and family, wife Monique and daughters Alishia,
Amber and Andrea have never forgotten their roots, their
hometown of Live Oak. Every year they put giving back'


on their things to do list. Live Oak is number one. Every
year he supports the athletic programs, especially foot-
ball at Suwannee High, in a very generous way. He also
donates to numerous churches in and around Suwannee
County.
Andra is a very big supporter of Christian Mission in
Action youth programs. Every summer he buys whatever
is needed to keep the program going and when he is in.
town he visits, encourages the kids and treats them to the
pool with snacks. He also chaperones the outing. During
Thanksgiving he gives food and clothing to those in
need. This past Christmas at the giveaway sponsored by
Christian Mission in Action, Andra and his family sup-


plied all the jackets, shoes, warm up suits, pj's and fruit
given to over 450 children and adults.
Andra along with Kelly Jennings sponsor the yearly
Athletic Day where children can meet Pro ball players
and have fun and food. The Andra Davis foundation is
well,known for their acts of kindness. He was also a sup-
porter of the Boys and Girls Club and every year they
give two scholarships through The African American De-
velopment Council. Andra and his wife Monique, who .
encourages him in his efforts to give back as part of their
blessings, have truly proven to be good neighbors across,
the miles.
Hats off to Andra Davis and family. Good Neighbors!


Suwannee County Animal Shelter


"Loving Pets For You"


By Ana Smith

It's been a busy week -
for the staff and volun-
teers of our shelter. And
in that week, if you have
been getting on your com-
puter and following the
progress of the shelters
across the country who
are vying for the top
prizes in the "Million
Dollar Shelter Makeover,"
you will find that our little
shelter is steadily climb-
ing up the ratings ladder.
We know it's because of
the awareness of this con-
test; and the effort of all
our citizens who care .
about this county shelter
and who have been get-
ting family, friends,
churches, and neighbors
involved. The contest
ends March 15, not the 31
as I originally understood,
so we arereally begging
everyone to please,
please, please go to this
website, Zootoo.com,
click 'Million Dollar
Shelter Makeover H,",
click on the directions on
how.tio join (it's free!) and
then click oni to "Suwan-
nee County Aningal Shel-
ter" so that your participa-
tion in as many activities
as possible will continue
to add those points that
could get us into-the top'
20 contenders. At the very
least, once we reach that
level, we are eligible to be
considered for the top
prize, or win some of the
prizes awarded to the top
20 semi-finalists.
Once the top 20 have
been determined, a com-
mittee from the contest
- will visit every one of'
those shelters and deter-
mine which 10 deserve to
be finalists. Then those 10
will be posted on the web-
site, and the American
public will chose which of
the 10 deserves the top
prize. As of'this writing,
our shelter has risen up to
#49, and when you see
how many shelters there
are in this contest, you'll
see that we are making
great strides, thanks to
everyone who has an-
swered our call and taken
part.


* While you are checking
out this website, be sure
to click into the section
that shows some of the
animals we have ready toq
be adopted at the shelter.
We have already had
some folks come in as a
result of what they saw,
and that's really what it's
all about ... the animals.,
Also, please check out our
message board at the end
of the pet food aisle in the
Live Oak Wal-Mart store.
We still have so many
who desperately need
homes as they come to the
end of their time with us.
And this is the time of
year when we are
swamped-with litters of
kittens and puppies, so we
ask you to please come by
and see all the cats and
dogs needing a good
home. And with the num-
ber of animals that come
to us on a weekly, and
sometimes daily basis,
you-will surely find that
pet that's perfect for you
and your family, if not on
your first visit, then most
certainly in the next visit
or two.
Our shelter is a non-
prDfit 501-c-3 organiza-
.tion,,so all donations of
food, litter, medicines,

Lake City Husband Reveals Real


truth About How His Wife Now


Feels...


"More Confident, Attractive,


And stopped All Her Complaining!"


Lake City, Fl- Right now,.its 15 minutes past midnight and myhusband
just went to sleep and you may be wondering why I am writing you
instead of sleeping. But I can't go to bed yet. There is a story I just have
to tell you that I can't put off until tomorrow.
See.. .earlier this evening, my husband and I were at a restaurant for
dinner, when a.nice older couple came up to us. I immediately.
recognized the woman as one of my patients, but I had not met her,
husband. ,
After our patient introduced u's to her husband (we will call him
Brian) he started to tell us a story...
Dr. Gerry, I'm sorry to interrupt your dinner, butI've wanted to talk
with you for a long time. As you probably remember, my wife (we'll
name her Erin) came to see you a few months ago, because as she told
you, she couldn't stand her missing teeth and partial dentures...
Now, I told her that I loved her and supported her if she ever wanted
to do something about her teeth, no matter how much it was going to
cost. But inside, I truly couldn't wait for the day that SHE decided 'it
was time to make a change.
See, when Erin and I married over 25 years ago, she was one of the
most positive, energetic, and fun people to be around, but.,
'after she had her partial dentures put in; I could see her
vibrancy fade with each passing day. She couldn't eat some
of her favorite foods, and the wide and bright smile ,was so ----
used to seeing was now being hidden, because she was afraid
for herpartial dentures popping out ornioving on her as she 1
laughed. He
She became more and more self-conscious. Smiled and EXY
laughed a lot less, and started complaining every day when I *
we'd start our dinner. R"estr'ctons Ap
When we'd go to dinner partied with friends and family, ---
she was always, afraid to smile, laugh, and when eating, Erin I
would put a napkin in front of her face, so others couldn't '
see her teeth. I knew she struggled with some things, but I l-
neerein4ew,'how much agonyand inertborture she put ,
heselfthrough. .
Anyhow, after coming across your article in the local
newspaper, I recommended that she come in for your "10 -.
Point Denture Relief Evaluation", Ever since that day, I. I
started to get my wife back. The one I knew 20 years ago I
and the one that was happier, more vibrant, and could I
brighten up any room, anywhere she went! ..
Not only has she been happier, more confident, and feeling I'
much more attractive. Our kid's her parents, friends, and,
family cannot stop complimenting her on her new look and I, Rest--
smile. In fact, one of her'friends jokingly accused her of ro"f--
findingthe fountain of youth! B :
SWhat I'm amazed at is how she enjoys laughing and,. I ,"g
smiling more than ever before, and it's made us feel like we get
are back on our first honeymoon.

I looked over to my husband, who was smiling, I gave a bashful smile back as if to say "Oh, thanks Brian, but that's just what I do."
When in'reality, I was thinking I was the most fortunate dentist in the world to be able to get the chance to give such great care to neighbors
and local Live Oak/Lake City residents. ,
So, here I am at 12:27a.m., and I'm writing you. See, I have a very special gift I want to offer you and don't want you to miss out.
Brian convinced me to give people in Lake City a chance to experience the same joy and happiness that Erin feels.

attractive, enjoy smiling more, then you must call us today, because for the first 27 people to call get a FREE 10 POINT DENTURE RELIEF

FCAT testing begins Tuesday


Here's what teachers and students are. saying


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
The FCAT's coming.
Suwannee County stu-
dents in grades 3-10 will
begin the reading, math,
and science portion of the
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test next
week. -
The test will be adminis-
tered March 10-12.
Eleventh graders will take
the science portion March
12. .
"The teachers and stu-
dents have worked hard to
prepare for this year's
FCAT test," Director of
Assessment Cheryl Mae
Brinson said by email.
"Students are ready."
Brinson said administra-
tors have been working
hard to ensure students are
not interrupted during test
days. She said Mark Carv-
er, director of maintenance
for county schools, has
halted all lawn mowing onq
test days so as not to dis-
turb the students.


"We're confident that,
FCAT week will be an op-
portunity for students to
show what they've learned
this year," said Brinson.
"On behalf of Superinten-
dent (Jerry) 'Scarborough,
the school board, and dis-
trict services, we wish stu-
dents and teachers the very
best."
Suwannee County's
Teacher of the Year, Judy
Jacobsen said her fourth
* grade class at Suwannee
.Intermediate School pre-
pares for the test all year.
"It is hard to make
FCAT preparation fun, but
we do it with games,
hands-on activities, art,
and even songs such as
'Florida Writes' to the tune
from the Adam's Family,"
said Jacobsen.
"I'm feeling so good,"
said Bryce Hatfield, a stu-
dent of Jacobsen's. "My
two great teachers have
prepared me for FCAT by
doing lots 'f fun activities
to help me learn; I feel
r -


prepared with my teachers
by my side."
Pedro Jaramillo said he's
no great fan of the test.
"I don't like the FCAT,"
the fourth grader said. "I
don't even want to do the
FCAT, I'm just doing it for
my education."
At Branford Elementary
School, third grade teacher
Stephanie Knighton said
getting students excited
about FCAT could be a
challenge.
"Although there is not a
magic formula to motivate
children, we strive to instill
not only the desire to learn,
but the love of learning, to
love the challenge of learn-
ing, and we impress on
. them, what you learn today
will affect what you do to-
, morrow," said Knighton.
At Suwannee High, stu-
dents must obtain a pass-
ing score in reading and
math to receive a high
school diploma.
"Because this final level
of testing is so monumen-

failed to give proper no-,
tic'e of the hearing to ad-
joining landowners. Con-
sequently, few showed up
for the hearing.
Billy Golightly, who
would operate the race-
track, said he wants to ob-
tain a permit to re-open
the track.
"Our permit was re-
voked on the judge's order
because of the county's er-
ror. We x anted to give the.
county an opportunity to
fix the error and the zon-
in pard didn't." Golight-
ly said.
The Golightlys' request
calls the zoning board's
denial of the application
"unreasonable" and claims
it "unfairly burdens" the.
use of their property. It
also says the denial "pro-
hibits' and eliminates' the
opportunity of the Go-
lightlys to achieve the pro-
posed use of the property"
and that it is "particularly
egregious in that the
County had previously ap-
proved a previous applica-
tion that was subsequently
vacated by the Circuit
Cotrt ... due to procedural
errors by Suwannee Coun-
ty ...." 1


Local landowners see it
differently. ,
"It's a case where he
(Billy Golightly) seems to
think a county error has
cost him," said Brett
Deutsch. "It was a county
error that gave them zon-
ing for six days by way of
an illegal hearing."
Caroline Coile is a pro-
fessional writer who's pub-
lished 31 works of non-fic-
tion...
"When the track was
running, I was sometimes
frustrated to tears," she
said Thursday. "For the


first time in 15 years, I
missed a deadline. The
house was shaking and
even turning up the televi-
sion didn't help."
The zoning board reject-
ed the Golightlys' request
after ruling the track vio-
lated county lan develop-
ment regulations concern-
ing noise.
The Golightlys filed the
request Feb. 26.
The proposed track and
campground is located
about 12 miles north of
Live Oak in the Fort
Union area. ,

tal, everyone at the high
school works daily to aid
and encourage students in
mastering the needed skills
for success on the high
school level FCAT test,"
said 10th grade English
teacher Vanessa Menhen-
nett.
Menhennett said SHS
.offers "special privileges"
for juniors and seniors as
part of the motivation
process.
"SHS administrators
promise to do such things
as eating a worm or shav-
ing (their) head(s) in front


of the student body as an
entertaining reward' for im-
provement on overall
school test scores," she
said.
Joyce McIntosh, a third
grade teacher at Suwannee
Elementary School, 'said
she tells her students to
just relax.
"I always tell them that
they are very smart and to
use what they've got," she
said. "And to relax, FCAT
is a way to prove to every-
one how smart you are."
A female student of
McIntosh's' said she was


apprehensive about the up-
coming test.
"I feel kinda scared," she
said. "I am learning the
math measurements better
and I am learning compre-
hension from the compre-
hension packets."
Said another fourth grad-
er, "I feel good 'cause I
can't wait to go to fourth
grade."
School officials say stu-
dents should go to bed ear-
ly the day before testing
begins, eat a good break-
fast and get to school ear-
ly.

sired. But through much perseverance,
patience ahd coach Garrett's support, this
team became a team of champions. Every
player came to practice ready to work and
work hard. Their dedication paid off, in
that their soccer season was 8 and 2.
The final two teams, First Federal and
Budget Storage, were in the champi-


onship game, Feb. 21. The final score
was 4-1. First Federal wihis! The most
precious sight was watching all of the
players- and their-parents, who had sup-
ported them throughout the season, run-
ning onto the field to hug each other and
while hugging coach Garrett saying, "We
did it! We did it!" The little team that
could has p~rved that coming together
and working as a team like coach Garrett
taught them ad made them champions.

their handicap. Still
three games came out

Unrefrigerated oysters

seized at two points of sale


More than 4,400 pounds of unrefriger-
'ated oysters would have reached the
mouths of Southwest Florida consumers
were it not f6r-the diligence of Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) officers.
In two seemingly unrelated incidents,
FWC officers arrested three unlicensed
people attempting to sell oysters that had
not been stored in accordance with state
health standards. However, markings on
the bags showed that oysters in both
seizures originally came from the same
shipment.
On Feb. 23, an FWC officer on patrol'
in Hendry County saw a man by the side
of the road advertising Louisiana oysters
for sale. The officer found 14 bags of
oysters in a cargo trailer without refrig-
eration or ice. He charged William R.
Kersey Jr. (DOB 02/01/1974) of 311
Clark St., LaBelle, with, selling saltwater
products without a retail license and with
violating quality-control regulations. The
officer seized and destroyed approxi-
mately 1,100 pounds of oysters in that
incident.


On Feb. 24, an FWC officer conduct-
ing commercial fish house inspections
on Estero Island in Lee County found
two men and a juvenile attempting to
sell oysters to a local fish house. The of-
ficer discovered 41 bags of oysters with-
out refrigeration or ice in the rear of a
pickup and in an open trailer. Dean T.
Daniels (DOB 08/03/1963) of 38 W.
Carmack Dr., Chalmette, La., claimed
that his refrigerated truck broke down
while transporting the oysters from his
fish house in Louisiana. The officer
charged Daniels and Jeremy Kennedy
(DOB 02/02/1988) of 4003 Cascade:
Lane, LaBelle, with attempting to sell
saltwater products without a wholesale
dealer's license and with quality-control
violations.
FWC officers and Florida Department
of Agriculture agents routinely inspect li-
censed fish dealers in Florida to ensure
that high standards for consumer prod-
ucts are met. The FWC reminds con-
sumers never to purchase seafood from
an unlicensed dealer. Licenses'must be
posted ini open view for consumers.

Laxton has taken the 'Dogs to a top 10
finish. More than 100 schools compet-
ed.
The 'Dogs took what Laxton calls
the "nickel pack" to the tournament,


consisting of heavyweight Jamie Al-
varado and 215-pounder Joe McMil-
lian. Both won one match each and
placed in the top 12. Michael Burrus
(125 lb.) won three matches, losing by
one point in the consolation semi-final
to place in the top eight of his weight
division. Luke Grantham won four
matches, three in the consolation


rounds, placing sixth and medaling at
the tournament.
Travis Laxton had complete control
throughout the tournament, pinning his
way to the finals, where he defeated
Ricky Rodriquez of Belen Jesuit, 7-2 .
The Bulldogs finished their regular
season 10-3 for dual meets, second in
the district and third in the region.

they beat Ft. White 9-4. Sum-

the plate going 2-4 with a dou-
ble and two rbi's. Playing
against district opponent Clay
High, the Lady 'Dogs over-
came a 3-0 deficit in the
sixth inning scoring four
runs. The.big hit once again


came from Summers with a
double that scored a run.
Clark, Townsend and Mar-
shanna Boyette had hits dri-
ving in runs. Clay scored in the
top of the seventh to tie the
game setting up an exciting fin-
ish for the Lady 'Dogs. A walk
by freshman Tinsley Smith,
and a hit by Clark around to
ground outs set the stage for
Summers who responded with


a three run walk off home run.
The Lady 'Dogs beat Madi-
son at home Feb. 26, 6-5. The
team scored two runs in the
bottom of the seventh on a
Natasha Clark hit to win the
game.
The Lady 'Dogs lost their
first game to Santa Fe Feb. 27.
With only two hits and 13
strike outs, the final was 5-0.
"These young ladies are


playing with a lot of hustle and
never give up attitude as well
as playing as a team to be at
this point," said Chambers. "It's
a good start for a young team,

In an ongoing focus on risk minimiza-
tion in high school soccer, an addition to
the shinguard policy has been approved.
A year after requiring shinguards to
meet NationaI Operating Committee on
Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOC-
SAE) standards, the National Federation
of State High Sc9hool Associations
(NFHS) Soccer Rules Committee will
now require the front of the shinguard to,
be permanently marked with the NOC-
SAE seal and height range, effective in
fall 2012.
The delay in implementation is to al-
low manufacturers to supply these types,
of shinguards to retailers. There is also
an emphasis on placing the shinguard no
higher than two inches above the ankle to
minimize risk of injury.
The revised shinguard policy was one
of four rules changes approved by the
Soccer Rules Committee at its January
26-28 meeting in Indianapolis. The rules
changes were subsequently approved by
the NFHS Board of Directors.
"As is al\ay) s the case, the Soccer
Rules Committee is most concerned


about minimizing the risk of injury for -
student-athletes," said Mark Koski,
NFHS assistant director and liaison to the
Soccer Rules Committee. "The require-
mett of the NOCSAE seal and height
range pn the front of the shinguard by
2012 is a good example of that. The com-
mittee wants to make sure that players
are protected in the best way possible." ,
"Joint" ankle braces have made techno-
logical leaps in safety over the past
decade. Because many "joint" ankle
braces are designed to be worn over
* stockings or other material, Rule 4-2-1g
has been amended to allow players to
wear braces outside the stocking, proiid-
ed they are not made of metal or other
hazardous material. Any braces made of
Metal or other hazardous material must
still be worn under a stocking.
"The NFHS Sports Medicine Advisory
Committee recommended updating this
rule based on the advances made in ankle
braces," Koski said. "This change reflects
our flexibility as far as the safety of the
players goes."
A change in Rule 3-1-3 will allow any


member of the team to deliver the team
roster to the officials at least five minutes
prior to the start of the contest.- Previous-
ly, the coach was required to submit the
roster, but since coaches are very, busy
prior to the start of the game, they are
now allowed to delegate the task.
The final change requires that the offi-
cials must be dressed in matching uni-
forms distinctly different from only the
field players of both teams. This. permits
the referee to possibly wear a shirt simi-
lar to one of the goalkeepers' shirts, as
long as it's unlike the field players' uni-
forms.
In addition to the rules changes, points
of emphasis for the 2009-10 season in-
clude unconscious player, NFHS Code of ...
Ethics, NFHS Soccer Signals, ball hold-
ers, team areas, ankle braces and'shin-
guard placement.
Soccer is the fifth-most popular sport
for boys and girls at the high school lev-
el. According. to the 2007-08 High School
Athletics Participation Survey, 383,561

Prescribed fire protects Natural Areas And contributes to safety of residents, Bronson says


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
wants to remind state residents of the vital role that
prescribed or controlled burning plays in maintaining
the health of Florida's forests and other natural areas,
as well as protecting the safety of residents and visi-
tors.
In 2008, the Florida Cabinet designated the first
week in March as "Prescribed Fire Awareness Week."
"Prescribed Fire is a safe way to apply a natural
process, ensure ecosystem health and reduce wildfire
risk," Bronson said. "Many of our plant and animal
communities are dependent on a regular occurrence of
fire for a healthy existence. Prescribed fire provides
better forage for wildlife and livestock, returns nutri-
I ents-to the soil, helps to control certain plant diseases,
and reduces hazardous fuel buildups."
Adcording to state wildfire officials, Florida has
been certifying prescribed burn managers since 1987,


and every five years these individuals must have train-
ing and experience to remain certified. There are cur-'
rently more than 1,500 certified prescribed burn man-
agers in Florida helping to prescribe burn 2 million
acres of land annually.
"Florida has one of the most extensive prescribed
burning programs in the country and one of the best
training programs for its certified prescribed burn
managers," Bronson said.
"Through our Division of Forestry, we promote the
reduction of hazardous fuel buildups, especially in our
wildland-urban interface areas," Bronson said. "Pre-
scribed burning helps provide protection to thousands

Develop a Discerning Spirit m

'Learning to discern the good from the bad is essential for all of us on our spiritual journeys,
andwe are all on spiritual journeys. Part of the difficulty of discernment is that there is ,.
often very little to distinguish the good from the bad. For example, is dancing wrong?. It
'"- '.-really depends on the type of dancing, since there are dances of praise to God which are
'r6c6mmended in the Bible (Psalm 149:3), and there are dances that evoke lust (Mark "6:22).
Is drinking wrong? Jesus converted water into wine as His first miracle (John 2:1-11), but
',t preaches against drunkeness and gluttony?(Luke -'
21:34). God gave us our minds as tools for life, and
that includes developing a critical faculty of
iti judgement that allows us to discern the good from
the bad. Quite importantly, even the act 1
oftijudging requires discernment. Jesus
tells us to "Judge not, that you be not
judged," (Matthew 7:1) and the
context indicates that He is telling us
..^*^**;^~.^. .... ,-not to make condemning *,", ^

SCrinthians 2:15, we are told that
"The spiritual man judges all,
things, but is himself to be
Judged by no one." The truly
S spiritual person is adept at
discerning virtue and vice, but,
they do not sit in judgement
over others. Almost anything can S.AN
be good or bad, depending on
4' "how it is used. Strength,
intelligence, and loyalty are
certainly virtues when tied to a good 4
will, but if used for evil purposes,
these things become vicious. So, we
should develop our spirit of
discernment, relying on our
conscience and our good o.!A
judgement. However, we.should
not be too quick to condemn our0
Neighbors because we don't know
their hearts.


Do not quench the Spirit, do not despise prophesying, but
test everything;hold fast what is good, abstain from every
.Taform of evil.2
R.S.V.. 1 Thessalonians 5:19-22

RELIGION


Are we be-
coming a culture
of quitters? Has
it become the
norm for us to
give up, rather
than persevere
in light of a dif-
ficult challenge?
What tasks have
you left unfin-
ished because of H
obstacles in neal
your way?
Motivation for- Mati
us is a direct re- By Ang
suit of results.
By nature, we
need to see a beneficial
effect inv order to continue
a difficult course. It seems
that our culture of imme-
diate answers and "no-
wait" policies have caused
us to develop, the expecta-
tion of instant results in
every venue. The genera-
tions before us appreciat-
ed things that were "worth
the wait" like a slow-
cooked meal, saving to
ibuy a house, and allowing
relationships to develop
over time. Some things
,just can't be rushed. Even
waiting on nature to take
its course was understood
and respected. Farmers
prepared the fields and
Showed the seed, anid'then
it was God's turn to bring


rt

ters
ie Land


the rain and pro-
duce the harvest.
Perhaps our
biggest hindrance
is faith, being
sure of what we
hope for and cer-
tain of what we
do not see. We
become wrongly
convinced that
unless we quick-
ly see results,
there are none.
In reality, we
will often have
to wait for the


outcome of do-
ing what's right.
A great example is the
prophet Elijah. The Bible
assures us that "Elijah
was a man just like us,"'
and records his story in I
Kings.'., Elijah engaged in
a standoff to prove to an
evil king that the God of
Israel was more powerful
than his god, Baal. Baal
was believed to be. the
god of rain and bountiful
harvest, which made Eli-
jah's challenge quite in-
teresting: "there will be
neither dew nor rain in the
next few years, except at
my word." After three
years without a single
drop, a showdown was
held at Mt. Carmel. Long
. story short, the prophets


of Baal were put to death,
Elijah told the king to get
ready for a downpour, and
sent his servant to look
toward the sea for rain.
The servant returned with
no news, but Elijah would
not believe only what his
eyes saw. Instead, his
faith told him it was
worth a second look, so
he sent his servant back
again and again until a
.cloud was spotted in the
distance, followed by a
heavy rain, the first in
three years.
Instant results can be
overrated; have faith and
persevere, because your.
heart matters!

Blessings,
Angie

Why do people put

dirt on their foreheads

on Ash Wednesday?
Fr. Don Wilson
Irf the beginnings of the Christian church, the first
:Cljfistians observed with great devotion the days of our
Loid- passion and resurrection. It became the custom
odf;he church to prepare for them by a season of peni-
tene 'and fasting. This season of LENT provided a time
lilbwhich converts to the faith were prepared for Holy
Baptism. It was also a time for those who, because of'
grave sins and had been separated from the body of be-
lievers, were reconciled by penitence and forgiveness,
-'and thus restored to the fellowship of the, Church. The
whole congregation was focused on the message of par-
don' and absolution set forth in the Gospel of our Lord
and Savior Jesus-Christ. It is a need of all Christians to
have their faith and'repentance renewed constantly.
Durming this time of the church year called "LENT",
`-,aketime to refocus your life and bring it into confor-
nif V-with Christ. Ask the Lord to search your heart and
show you those parts of your life where you have at-
S-'teited to take control. Look for the ways that you
*'ia'id'drifted away from Gods commandments and
''-bbght to do things "YOUR" way instead of His. When
ydir-find these areas, seek the Lord with all your heart
and cbnfess them qut,' seek His forgiveness, then ask
'the Lord to re-take control and give you the strength to
'bll~k Him.
-', "-Ash Wednesday marked the beginning of the church
season called "Lent", a time of spiritual warfare, fast-
ing, penitence, and the preparation for the Easter feast,
It was in the tenth century that ashes were imposed
bn the foreheads of the penitent that were to be reinstat-
ed into the fellowship and full communion of the
church.
Beginning in the eleventh century, ashes were im-.
posed on the foreheads of all the faithful believers, as a
Reminder that the "wages of sin is death." In Genesis
3:19, God said td Adam after the fall, "dust thou art,
and unto dust shalt thdu return".
This marking of our foreheads, in the sign of the
cros's is also to remind us of our baptisms, where we
wete also marked w ith the sign of the cross. This re-
' minder speaks very loud and clear of the salvation that
is given to us in the death and resurrection of the sec-
S-ond Adam, Jesus the Christ.
Yes, the wages of sin is death; But the gift of God is
eternal life through Jesus Christ our LORD. (Romans
6:23)

Lenten Bible study at St. Luke's

Episcopal Church


This year at St. Luke's we are
offering to the Suwannee County
community a Lenten Bible study as
we prepare for Easter. This is a

all. All we ask is that you bring
your 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

and Conclusion
The 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 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 presenfeid
by Andy Decker.
