CCS performs to packed crowd


f men and women from Comprehensive Community Services performed at the Advent Christian Village Chapel during the 2nd annual Let Freedom Ring! event. Photo: Submitted


if you were fortunate enough
to ttend"the Let Freedom Ring!
I2st ninth, presented by the men
d women from Comprehensive
Copmunity Services, you
Walked away with a great feeling
m your heart. This 2nd annual
event was moved to the Advent
histian Village Chapel because
the early reservation numbers
exceeded 250 people.
^rhe night's activities began
ith the much heralded Presen-


station of Colors by members of
the Suwannee NJROTC unit led
by LCDR USN.(retired) Greg
Hazlett.
The main show got under way
when the performers, accompa-
nied by Dick Grillo on guitar, '
broke free fromitheir own per-
sonal life challenges and showed
the audience how-to have a real-
ly good time. .
"The group chose this musical
event as their way of saying


thank you to the community for
their support," said Grillo.
"They've been learning that each
one of them has the right to
make choices in life and this was
also their way of saying thank
you to the local men and women
who made the choice to defend
our country." .
When the enthusiastic group
had their chance to sing, they led
the audience in old favorites like
"You're A Grand Old Flag" and


"Yankee Doodle" and had the
crowd tapping their feet right
along with them. The audience
was entertained by a several new
performers in this years' produc-
tion who showed off their talent
by playing bell chimes to the
tune of the "Battle Hymn of the
Republic." Not to be outdone,
the CCS dancers also showed off
their skills to the music of "Achy
Breaky Heart" and everyone's
favorite, "The Chicken Dance."


The audience was then stirred
by a reading of "I Am the Na-
tion" done by retired members of
the armed forces currently living
at the Village, and were later left
spellbound when Abraham Lin-
coln impersonator, Gerald Be-
strom, gave his recitation of the
Gettysburg address. The night's
festivities concluded with a spe-
cial reception in the Phillips Din-
ing Hall for the CCS performers,
their families and the audience.

Church March 14 is part of Winter

lage. Tickets for the concert are for

We little knew that morning .
God was going to call your name, !
In life we loved,you dearly, : .
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,. .
You did not go alone,
For partof us went with you,
The day God called you home.
You left us with beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide,
And though we can not see you,
You are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same, ,.; ..
But as God call us one by one, .
The chain will link again.
We love and miss you dearly Michael Shane.....

Treatment Options for Gout
Gout is a painful condition in which there are attacks of
inflammation that affect the joints. High.levels of uric acid in toe
blood can lead to the accumulation of uric acid in joint fluid,
causing inflammation. Uric acid is a breakdown product df
chemicals called purines, which are contained in certain foods.
Increased consumption of meat and fish or being overweight my
increase the risk of gout. Symptoms include swelling, redness, alid
tenderness of the affected joints. Typically, gout attacks begin at toe
big toe or knee. Other body joints may also be affected. 4
Treatment incorporates prevention of future attacks, as well 5s
relief of acute symptoms. Weight loss, dietary changes, and reduced
alcohol consumption are lifestyle changes that are useful in tge
prevention of attacks. Pain relievers, such as acetaminophez
(Tylenol) work to alleviate pain associated with an acute attack.
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications such as indomethacwt
(Indocin) and noiproxen (Naprosyn) may be taken to alleviate
inflammation and pain. Colchicine (Colsalide) is another type f
anti-inflammatory medication that may be prescribed. Allopuriihal
(Zyloprim) works to decrease the production of uric aci4.
Probenecid (Bcncmid) and sulfinpyrazone (Anturane) increase the
removal of uric acid from the body. 5 -

OPINION


Consider some


underlying issues

I've been studying humanity for
quite some time now and some
years ago, it occurred to me that a
lot of the issues with Russia during
the Cold War days might have
been that they always seemed to ,
have a shortage of toilet paper.
Now I know that we tend to think
about missiles, tanks and property
lines when we think of cold wars and other such
conflicts. But there often are underlying causes that
may not be as complex as we would like to pose.
Being without'toilet paper in a very cold country
can be a terrible thing. I'm not really sure why
there was such a shortage. It's not a rocket, scientist
issue. It would seem that no one was put in charge
of toilet paper. I don't think that has to be a cabinet
' post, but'there should be at least ohe under-secre-
tary in touch with Charmin or Proctor and Gamble.
Toilet paper was never discussed at some of the
big conferences that were held in regard to world
peace and international stability. But it may have
been like the 500-pound gorilla in the room that no
one wanted to acknowledge.
Then let's go to North Korea. One's very stature
might impact attitude and leadership. That little
Kim Jong II guy is very short, has a really bad
hairdo and probably wears elevator shoes. But he
has lots of power and soldiers. Much of the world
is afraid that he's going to get up one morning with
a worse-than-usual bad hair day and push a red
button or send a million troops across the 38th par-
allel.
Think of the bad attitude potential of a leader.
whose hair looks like it's trying to escape and be-
ing so short that he can't qualify for two-thirds of
the rides at Six Flags.'
Then we have places like Afghanistan. The other
night I watched "Man Versus Wild" filmed in the
badlands of Afghanistan. Behr Gryll was showing
us should we ever go hiking there and get off the
beaten path how to survive in a land so harsh that
you can't even find rocks that work.
He described this area as being where civiliza-
tion began. It would seem fortunate that if it did
.begin there, a lot of people were wise enough to
leave. Behr couldn't find a single soul to give him
directions.
.Yet, people do live in places like Afghanistan
and Pakistan even though the chances of growing
butter beans there are slim andnone. So think of
how such harsh surroundings can play 9n one's at-
titude. If getting shot is a viable option to facing
another day of alkaline dust and smelly camels,
then going to war may be no bigger a decision than
one of us deciding we want to go fishing.
So among my conclusions from these observa-
tions is that we should never take toilet paper for
granted, a good hairstyle should be covered by
Medicaid and everyone should be responsible for
planting at least one tree. And when we hold elec-
tions, we might want to take the candidates to Six
Flags to make the first cull.
Of course there is a chance that I've oversimpli-
fied international relations a bit, and I realize it
would be very difficult to produce spy movies with
hairstyles and toilet paper being key to the script.
But sometimes simple underlying issues might be
the real reasons some people are mad at the world.

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 my husband
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 us to her husband (we will call him
Brian) he started to tell us a story...
Dr. Gerry, I'm sorry to interrupt your dinner, but I'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 nionths 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 I was so r ---
used to seeing was now being hidden, because she was afraid
for her partial dentures popping out or moving on her as she I
laughed., H e
She became more and more self-conscious. Smiled and Exp
laughed a lot less, and started complaining every day when
we'd start our dinner. Restrictions App
When we'd go to dinner partied with friends and family,
she was always afraidito smile, laugh, and when eating, Erin SI
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 I
never knew how much agony and inner torture she put I
herself through. ,
Anyhow, after coming across your article in the local I
newspaper, I recommended that she come in for your "10 i
Point Denture Relief Evaluation", Ever since that day, I,
started to get my wife back. The one I knew 20 years ago A
and the one that was happier, more vibrant, and could
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 L J-R
smile, In fact, one of her friends jokingly accused her of r- -
finding the fountain of youth! BU
What I'm amazed at is how she enjoys laughing and I
smiling more than ever before, and it's made us feel like we get
are back on our first honeymoon.
"For all your help. and care I just wanted to give you a very
sincere -Thank you!" I
WOW! ,

Stunned, Shocked, And Speechless
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.
If you or someone you know is missing teeth or is extremely frustrated with your dentures or partial and has ever wanted to feel more
attractive, enjoy smiling more, then you must call us today, because for the first 27 people to ball get a FREE 10 POINT DENTURE RELIEF
EVALUATION!

Spaying And Neutering
Experts, say the most
important thing people can
do to help their pets is to
get them spayed or
neutered. This means the
animals get an operation;
to be sure they can't have
kittens or puppies. They,
are asleep during the oper-
ation, so they aren't scared
or in pain.
Spaying and neutering
are so important because
there are so many animals
needing care and not
enough homes or shelters
for them..
One cat or dog can have'
many litters in its life. Its
kittens or puppies can have
many .litters, too. This can
end up creating thousands
of new cats and dogs.

Florida Winter Strawberries

PLANT CITY/DOVER, FLA March
through early-April may be the last
chance until next November to source
domestic strawberries from Florida. Just
about any Floridian will agree that
Florida strawberries are the highest-
quality winter strawberries east of the
Mississippi. They can be delivered to key
markets fresh and fast due to their prime
location to eastern and southern markets.
'Florida is the dominant U.S. supplier
of strawberries in the winter months and
reigns supreme from late November
thorough March and often into April
when other growing regions begin
coming into the marketplace. Now is the
time to celebrate the season while
supplies are still available.
Florida winter strawberries a taste of
summer all winter long.
Florida winter strawberries are grown
primarily in the Plant City/Dover region
of Florida. The production area has
. earned a worldwide reputation as The
Winter Strawberry Capital of the World.
Producers planted approximately 8,500
acres this .growing season. Each year
since 2003-2004 acreage has increased


due to consumer demand. Growers
attribute this to increased awareness of
the health benefits of strawberries and
other fruits such as blueberries,
blackberries, raspberries and
pomegranates all rich in antioxidants
and valuable nutrients.
"In my recent travels to St. Louis and
Atlanta, I found that, overwhelmingly,
retailers and foodservice personnel
recognize the value of stocking and
serving domestically-grown winter
strawberries and other U.S.-grown
produce over foreign imports," said Sue
Harrell, director of marketing for the
Florida Strawberry Growers Association
(FSGA), a voluntary organization made
up of about 100 strawberry growers.
"Strict safety standards and voluntary
product tracking ability have become a
high priority for Florida producers.
Retailers and consumers appreciate our
dedication to safety, freshness and
superior quality. We'll put our quality,
freshne flat.or and dependability .,g
against any other strawberry producing

MEET YOUR


James Dunbar, 95, James Dunbar
retired after 38 years of working on

the railroad. "I haven't done a half a day's work since," he says.


By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.corn

James Dunbar has seen a lot in his 95 years.
Dunbar grew up on a farm in Wellborn with his
grandparents, Grant and Bessie Williams. He was
plowing with a mule by age 15 and was grown before
his uncle bought a tractor to work his grandparents'
farm. The Williams family grew' watermelons, corn and
peanuts and raised hogs.
Dunbar enjoyed a 38-year career with-the railroad.
He got a job with the Seaboard Air Line Railroad, now
CSX Transportation, at age 25. His first job was to un-
load the mail from incoming trains into the depot in
Live Oak. Back in those days, the railroad carried the
mail and the post office picked it up from the train sta-
tion. After 26 years,, the position was done away with
when trucks began transporting the mail.
Dunbar. then became a brakeman. That job required
him to operate a track lever, which allowed trains to


switch tracks.
In those days, Dunbar said the train operator would
be notified to switch tracks by attendants at train sta-
tions at various points along the way. The attendants re-
ceived word by telephone from train dispatchers, head-
quartered in Jacksonville, who monitored rail traffic.
Dispatchers now cofttrol the tracks electronically.'
Dunbar considers himself blessed to have gotten the
job since he was hired during the Great Depression.
"Jobs were scarce. You didn't get jobs back then," he
said. .
At one point, Dunbar had to travel to Browaid Coun-
ty to find work. There he cultivated vegetable, crops on
a farm.
"There wasn't a whole lot of work going on" in
Suwannee County, he said.
' Though Dunbar knew folks were losing their jobs
due to the economic downturn, Dunbar said, "It didn't
hurt me. I kept something to do."
After farming a couple of years, Dunbar moved back


to Suwannee County, where he was hired by the rail-
road.
Dunbar started out making $2.76 per hour with the
railroad, a nice sumn in those days. He described the job
as "good paying and easy."
Dunbar retired from the railroad 32 years ago.
"I haven't done a half a day's work sincee" he said.
Dunbar met his wife of 64 years, the late Corine
Dunbar, at a local church gathering. The couple raised
two children and have four grandchildren.

has 355 teachers on staff.
Suwariniee schools lost
$3 million in state funding
last year and stand to lose
$4 million more this year.
Since 2005, state spending
at the school level has de-
'creased by 40 percent, he
noted, and district lottery
funds have decreased, by
73 percent over the last 10
years.
In response, Scarbor-
ough said plans are in the
works to streamline the
staff at the district office,
partly through consolida-
tion of positions. That
process had already begun


* with the recent elimination
of one assistant superin-
tendent position and the
consolidation of the Per-,
sonnel and LHuman Re-
sources departments.
"We have'to protect the
integrity of the class-
* room," Scarborough told
the crowd. "Without teach-
ers we don't need school."t
He was met with a burst of
applause in response.
"I've. never been faced
with anything like we're
facing now," School Board
Chairman Jerry Taylor told
the crowd. "Our children
are much too important to
continue to play these
games like they are play-

his mother's remains and
said he wished to speak
with legal counsel.
As' the elders left the
jail, a law enforcement of-
ficer asked. them what El-
lion had told them, the
motion contends. During
Questioning by the officer,
.Elliott drew a map indicat-
ing the location of his
mother's remains.
Elliott's motion contend-
ed that his conversation
with the elders was privi-
leged, as it was a commu-
nication to clerg'. The mo-
tion further argued that
statements obtained by the'
,.officer should be thrown
out, as Elliott haa on sev-
eral prior instances in-
voled his right to counsel.
Another motion con-
tended that Elliott's homer
was searched illegally and
that any physical evidence


seized should be excluded.
from the case.
According to the mo-
tionr; law enforcement offi-
cers did not enter Elliott's
home with a search war-
rant but rather had Elliott
sign a consent form after
they entered the home,
when Elliott was intoxicaf-
ed. -
Both motions were de-
nied at a hearing on Feb.
27.
Fina also denied a mo-;
tion by Elliott's attorney,
Jeffrey Siegmeister, to
withdraw from the case.
Siegmeister cited a con-
flict of interest in repre-
setting Elliott after the
state' revealed that a wit-
ness had been previously
represented by Siegmeister
in an unrelated matter. El-
liott had earlier waived his
right to be represented by
counsel who is free of
conflicts of interest. ,,

Problem is, the employee
hadn't entered any draw-
ing. And the $4,980 check
was a fake.
The scam is successful
when the recipient of the
letter, cashes the check and
wires the "tax payment" to
the scammers, as instruct-
ed. The scammer gets al-
most $3,000 and the recipi-
ent is responsible for mak-
ing good on the bad check.
"If you cash. the check
you have committed a
criminal act," Det. Sgt.'. y..
Ron Shaw of the Live Oak
Police Department said by
email Friday. "You can be
prosecuted for a variety of
offenses, plus you will be
responsible to repay the
money tokthe business or

one of these checks don't
be surprised to have your
bank accounts seized.
"If they do that, you have
no recourse," said,Shaw.
"People should just tear up
the letter and send it to the
landfill along with the rest
of the garbage. That's all it
is."
Shaw notes that if you

stakes of any kind, you
claim the total, fill out tax,
forms and then receive the
total minus the taxes as
your prize. You will never,

"It's certainly going to

5.3 percent of county funds

A: An immediate dentures is one that is
made before teeth are removed and is
inserted Immediately after tooth removal
sonthat a patient does not have to go for a
long period without any teeth. Since an
immediate denture is placed over tooth
extraction sites right after the procedure,
it can help prevent swelling. A number of
post-operation visits to the dentist are
required to check on the healing process
and to make any needed adjustments to
the denture. The healing process after
substantial tooth extraction can take
several months.
Because the shape of the mouth will
change after it heals, dentures generally
need to be evaluated every three months
and adjusted so that they continue to fit
properly. Conventional dentures are made
and Inserted after teeth have been
removed and the healing process Is
complete.
With the proper care, a set of dentures
should last a long time. They will need,
however, as mentioned above, occasional
relining or rebasing to accommodate the
natural changes in your mouth. Talk with
your dentist about the benefits and types
of dentures.

region. A simple taste test of our
strawberries against those from other
regions tells the story best.
"Americans are becoming more health
conscious today and realize that
increasing consumption of fresh fruits and
vegetables is the way to go to provide
good nutrition at a reasonable cost. And
when you think about it, strawberries rank
high as a fast food. Just grab them and go.
Nothing tastes better than fresh
strawberries eaten right out of hand,"
Harrell concluded.
The FSGA works with plant breeders
from the University of Florida to seek
new and improved varieties year after
year. Developing a new variety is a
lengthy and necessary component of the
overall program of FSGA.

Guidelines when selecting, handling


and storing strawberries

Choose berries that are firm, fragrant,
plump and bright-glossy red. Strawberries
don't continue to ripen after they are
harvested. The caps (or calyx) should be
bright green and fresh in appearance.
Cool berries as soon as possible in the
container in which they were purchased
and refrigerate until ready to use.
*Use strawberries within three or four
days of purchase.
*Remove berries from the refrigerator
about an hour or two before serving for
maximum flavor.
*Wash and remove caps immediately
before use.
*Remove the green caps with a light
twisting motion or with the point of a
paring knife.
*Use the clamshell container in which
they were purchased as a convenient
colander.

the Gable property and M&S Farms,
both in Jackson County, and the John-
son Homestead in Hamilton County.
"These families have.been able to re-
tain ownership of their land through the
Great Depression, diseases, droughts,
freezes and the urbanization of Florida,"
Bronson said. "That is a great tribute to
the many generations of these families.
The William and Faye Gable property
is currently in row crops and cattle pro-
duction and has been used for cotton
and swine production in the past. The
Johnson Homestead has been used for
row crops and cattle and is now used for
tomato and timber production. The
Johnson's have a family tradition of


grinding sugar cane for cane syrup
every Thanksgiving. M&S Farms,
owned by Myra Phillips Hurst, is used
for pasture, hay and cattle, and also has
the Dry Creek Grits Mill located on the
property. Some people used to call it the
"Tharp Mill."
Since the program began 26 years
ago, 152 family farms have received the
-Century Pioneer Family Farm designa-
tion. The program is administered by
the Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services.

Pair now behind bars


Staff
Two persons of interest
in a string of Live Oak,
home invasion robberies,
both suspects in a Lake
City shooting, are now
behind bars in Columbia

popped up with Foster holding tight
to the prize.
On the offensive side everyone got
into the action. Dustin Driver went

Men face costly fine for undersized swordfsh'


. That's some expensive fish. Taking three
imdersized swordfish may end up costing
four Broward County men $10,000. NOAA
issued a "notice of violation and assess-
ment" to the owner, permit holder, boat op-
erator and fisherman of the fishing vessel
"No Mercy."
The dase was referred to NOAA by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC). In December, FWC"

near Port Everglades.
Weis performed a marine fisheries inspec-
tion. Two.men.- a captain and a fisherman
w- ere on boardat the time. The men had '
caught six swordfish, three of which were
under the legal length and weight limits,
Weiss reported. Federal regulations specify
a minimum length of 29 inches from clei-
thrum to caudal keel or 33 pounds dressed.
If in whole condition,' the swordfish must be
47 inches long, lower jaw fork length."
"We hope this case serves as deterrence,"


said FWC Lt. Dave Bingham. "Taking un-
dersized swordfish has costly conse-
quences."
Four people are facing federal 'fisheries
law violations. The men are identified as the
captain; Michael J. Macneir, DOB' 12/2/80,
of Fort Lauderdale; fisherman Shane T.

Desperation

is not a difficult task in a city
that rivals Barrow, Alaska as
the coldest in the USA.
The Yankees will soon '.:
learn about desperation. Life
without A-Rod will be -r
difficult for the Pinistripers:'.
Despite being a poor judge of'
medication, he will be sorely'
missed and the Yanks need t6W
get out of the box quickly. If"',
things don't work out the
Yankees will need to unload <
some young talent for abat.
Where-is Manny when you -
need him. If the Yankees .
don't win, Joe Girardi will be
desperately.seeking.
employment. Wouldn't it be '
great if they signed Barry ci
Bonds.
I forgot, Jerry Jones is
interviewing him asa
possible replacement for Pade
man or was that Tank, or waS-
that T.O. Desperation will bde
a theme this year with '
Michael Vick coming out of
prison and various other
thugs looking for work. I .',
don't know of a team that
really had its fortunes turned&
around by a malcontent or iff';
recent times a sociopath.

don't know why sports waits
