Stage goes

dark at SHS
After 25 years, high school
drama program is no more
By Jeff Waters
jeff watiers-'@gafinews corrn
After 25 years of memorable perfor-
mances, the Suwannee High School drama
program is no more. Steve Johnson, director
of the program. said the main reason for
closing up shop is lack of student participa-
tion. Johnson had planned a spring musical,
Grease, but could only muster eight boys for
tryouts.
"It has become more and more difficult to
stage productions." said Johnson. "Naturally.
we always need more than just the characters
that appear on stage." Johnson said volun-
teers are needed for backstage and pre-pro-
duction chores, such as taking tickets.

iniclhde: yellow skin or eyes (also known as

late summer and fall. So if
you prune azaleas fre-
quently, you'll end up cut-
ting off next year's flow-
ers. Flower bud dormancy
is broken by temperatures
below 50F for 4-8 weeks
followed by warm temper-
atures'.
Azaleas come in a vari-
ety of colors and sizes. The
Southern Indian Hybrids
show their large flowers
(2" 3 1/2") in early
spring. Your choice of col-
ors is from white to
salmon to orange-red.
These fast-growing hybrids
reach a height and diame-
ter of 10 feet.
Beware of the "dw art"
Kurume variety. They still
can grow from 4 to 6 feet.


This is not my idea of a
dwarf plant, Even though
they are tall for dwarf
plants, they are hardier
than Southern Indian Hy-
brids. A vast array of col-
ors is available to choose/
froni.
We even have native
Florida azaleas which are
often called bush or wild
honeysuckle. The trumpet-
shaped flowers are borne
in large terminal clusters
of yellow, orange and other
colors.
Although azaleas are
susceptible-to some dis-
eases and insects, they are
still a great choice for
North'Florida yards.' The
key for healthy landscapes
is selecting the right plant
for the right place. Planti-
ng your azaleas in the right
. light and soil conditions
will help reduce problems
with disease and insects. I
encourage you to visit your
local nurseries to find the
right azaleas for you and
your landscape.

ed-to participate in Nationals' 2009 Miss Jr. Teen Jack-

8. Jennifer learned of her acceptance into this year's
competition as National, Inc. announced their selections
recently. Jennifer submitted an application and took
part in an interview session that was conducted by Patty
Neidert, this year's Jacksonville Pageant Coordinator.
Jennifer competed for her share of thousands of dol-
lars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed
to contestants. Jennifer competed in the Miss Jr. teen
division, one of four divisions that featured young
ladies between the ages of 7 and 19 who competed in
modeling routines which included casual wear'an4 for-
mal wear. Most importantly, Jennifer displayed her per-
sonality and interviewing skills while interviewing with
this year's Jacksonville judging panel. Personality is the
number one aspect that each contestant is judged on
during all phases of competition.
Miss Jr. Teen Jacksonville will represent Jacksonville
and the surrounding communities at the Cities of Amer-
ica National Competition that wvill take place in Orlan-
do. Over $60,000 in prizes and awards will be present-
ed at the Nationial Competition while each winner en-
joys this expense-paid trip of five nights and six days in
Orlando.
There was no cost to Jennifer for participating in the
pageant competition. Communitybusinesses, organiza-
tions and private individuals assisted Jennifer in partici-
pating in this year's competition by becoming an offi-
cial sponsor to her. Through sponsorship, each contes-
tant receives all the necessary training, rehearsals, and


financial support which
helps contestants become

.Suwannee and Branford High
School Future Farmers of America
(FFA) members got some hands-on
experience in forestry practices re-
cently by assisting Suwannee River
Water Management District (District)
staff in planting wiregrass seedlings
at Peacock Slough, located in south-
west Suwannee County.
The students were invited to par-
ticipate by the District, Florida Fish
apd Wildlife Conservation Commis-
ston, (FWC) and The Wildlife Soci-
ty, who all have entered into a cost-
s'are agreement to fund the project.
g he goal pf ihe project is to re ,
store degraded forestry communities ,'
and the land that we are focusing on
in Peacock Slough is. a sandhill area,


which is a high priority restoration
area," said District Environmental
Specialist Beau Willsey. "Planting
the wiregrass will facilitate more
successful prescribed burns that keep
the forests healthy."
Willsey explained that wiregrass is
a native, warm-season grass that
serves as a predominant fuel for pre-
scribed fires, which are the most
economically and environmentally
friendly method to manage forest
health.
Jimmy Wilkerson, agriculture
teacher and FFA sponsor at BHS,
was proud to be a part of the project
and hopes that his students under-
stand the value of their efforts.
"They're helping preserve the land


so future generations can enjoy it,"
said Wilkerson. "I'm glad the state's
taking the initiative to do this and we
could participate. I didn't have to
twist any arms; the students were all
excited and willing to come. They
just enjoy doing this."

-OUR VI-E
Suwannee Democrat


Here



and


there

By the time you read this the
trend may well be reversed, but let's
at least savor the moment. As of
Thursday morning, the stock market
had been up two days in a row. That
didn't.used to be a big deal, but it is.
now. Couple that with the recent
break. in the weather, signaling the
imminentarrival of spring, and all's
right with the world.

Fifty-six Suwanniee County
school officials and concerned citi-
zens are going to Tallahassee Tues-
day to have a frank chat with our
state rep. and senator, Debbie Boyd
and Charlie Dean, respectively. The
topic: school funding. The Democ-
rat will be among that number. Let's
hope we can make them understand
just what we're up against here.
If you have a specific question or
comment for our legislators, let us
know and we'll see if we can get an
answer or a comment. Email us at
robert.bridges@gaflnews.com.
Meanwhile, still no final word on
whether our state will be getting its
share of federal stimulus funds for
schools.

Thanks, folks, for visiting our
Web site in ever-increasing num-
bers. Suwanneedemocrat.com is our
way of getting news to you when it
happens. We add new stories
throughout the day, Monday through
Saturday. Stop in daily to see what's
new.

Please address letters
to: Letters To The
Editor, Suwannee
Democrat,
PO Box 370,
Live Oak, FL 32064.
Please include your full name, ad-
dress and daytime phone number.
We'ask this so we can .verify your
letter and discuss any questions
about it with you.


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.

The "gang of 5" that dictate our lives needs to leave their pet
peeves & religious convictions at home, not in our co. gov't.
.The moronic alcohol laws deny this county millions of dollars a
yr. we can really use! Our tourism development council is a
bad joke also, tourism is a really profitable future, but people
want to enjoy themselves. This is not likely in these backwards.
thinking dry counties. The state stepped in before on this issue
& needs to again. Prohibition gave us organized crime which
, merely shifted to drug smuggling following repeal. We need '
less laws & officials that work for the majority!

If our county commission chairman wants to do the Lord's
work, fine, get a congregation, notthe commission meeting!
This alcohol issue is a personal crusade that benefits no one.
This is a matter of individual responsibility and freedom. It
hurts our local economy & future. We already have a whole
town & a resort that are tax exempt thru church ownership not
to mention the considerable real estate that is tax exempt here.
Bars, liquor stores, resorts & restaurants pay taxes, (lots of
them), provide jobs and encourage visitors to the area. Remem-
ber, Vladimir Lenin did not ban belief in God, he banned a cor-
Srupt church for keeping the population ignorant & poor!!

I am amazed at how small minded this county is. First our
taxes are cut to the bone and then people complain about ser-
vices. Who do they think pays for these services. Its the hard
working stiff that improves their property so it looks good, they
get stiffed to pay for those who don't have to pay. You tax the,
hell out of the gasoline I us in the car that takes me to work so I
can pay more taxes. Every time we get a chance to create more
revenue on the purchase of alcohol you shoot it down. Don't get
me wrong I don't drink the stuff myself but we can tax the hell
out of the stuff that is useless. Like cigarets and alcohol. Don't
give me that nonsense that God doesn't want us to use alcohol.
After all he did change the water into wine not wine into water.

Why does it take 12 home invasions to get the FDLE,
Suwannee Co Sheriff, and the Police Chief to form a task
force? Wouldn't this be considered a "Hate Crime" since it is
only happening to the Hispanic community?? I hope with all of
their resources pooled together they can find the people who
are committing these crimes and put them away for a long time.
Concerned :

A question about Suwannee District Schools email system
called First Class. What is the policy for keeping people on that
system once they retire? It seems that it matters who you are as
whether you stay on or not. Former superintendents and assis-
tant superintendents as well as principals have been left on
while others who retired have been taken off on the day of their
retirement. Just wondering.

Yes, I heard on the scanner the other day that the county fire-
fighters Were not allowed to get water within city limits. Why is
that? What does that do for the houses outside the city limits?
Does the city feel like they must restrict the use of this? Do
they own the water? Answers please.

I'm calling about the problem people in Suwannee County
and Live Oak are worried about being able to sell liquor on


Sunday. With all the problems we have facing us right now is
that really the worst thing. What is the big deal about not hav-
ing bars open or being able to sell booze on Sunday. I think
they should really get their priorities together and stop being
. jerks. We have too many bad things happening and that is the
least of it,
M Ei
I was wondering why there is no A and B Honor Rolls pub-
lished in the Suwannee Democrat any more. Because when my
children were in school we enjoyed seeing my children's names
in the newspaper under the A and B Honor Roll. And I would
love to enjoy, to see my grandchildren when they start making
A and B Honor Roll grades. Please bring back the Honor Roll,
the A and B Honor Roll.

I'm calling in regards of the alcohol being sold on Sunday. I
don't see what the problem is. I think it would be a great idea.
We buy beer here in Suwannee County Monday through Satur-
day. What's the difference on Sunday? Sunday is just another
day. I say we should do it. If you're with me, meet me at the
meeting.

The person who wrote in the Rant & Rave last week and
wrote no more socialism and get rid of the fire department and
police and public highways. He or she should be ridden out of
town on a rail. Period.

Our city streets and cemetery are being poorly maintained I
agree, but follow the money and it will lead back to OMI. They
have cut staff so badly one city employee now does the work of
three. But this bare bones budget that is in place does not save
Live Oak any money. Have you noticed your city bill lately?
Our money is going to Colorado folks. Looks like we have
elected two new recruits in the good old boys club. Campaign
promises yet unrealized. How surprising.

Oh joy he has ajob.,And he did not have to join your church,
he didn't have to marry your daughter, he didn't need a 100-
pound beer belly, to chew and spit or learn to speak southern
that's spelled s-o-o-u-t-h-e-r-n-h-n. Oh joy!
With money being scarce let's convince our five county com-
missioniers to let the voters decide if we need property on Lake
Louise, the Crapps property or the property at Sandy Point.
Why are the commissioners willing to pay three and four times
what this property is worth? If this property was worth what we
have been lead to believe, it would have sold two or more years
ago to developers. Past commissioners gave away a prime
county park, so why do we need more. Let's request that our
commissioners let the voters decide on land purchases during
the next election in 2010.

My family moved.to Suwannee County in 1980. We left
South Florida to get away from booze, drugs and crime. We de-
cided on the Live Oak area because it was quiet and had a nice
county owned park, now known as Spirit of the Suwannee. We
like gospel, country and bluegrass music but will not carry our
grandchildren to an establishment that has to serve booze. I
hope and pray along with many, many families of Suwannee
County that soon we will see Suwannee County dry of booze
and drugs. It is about time the voters.and taxpayers had a say in
this matter. How about putting it on the ballot so we all have a
choice?

If the newspapers, the radio and TV would start giving some
positive statements instead of all the doom and gloom we might
get out of this recession a lot faster. I hope they will take note.

Callers to 208-8314 may express, their thoughts, good or bad,
24/7 about community issues and politics, but not about private
individuals or businesses. If you prefer, you may e-mail your
comments to nf.editorial@gaflnews.com. You don't have to give

During the start of the
New Year many of us will
,make resolutions that fo-
cus on personal goals.
Everything from shedding
a few pounds to saving
more money makes the
list of popular resolutions
around this time of year.
"The Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental
Protection (DEP) is en-
couraging Floridians to
consider resolutions that
have a positive impact not
only on themselves'but
also on the state's envi-
ronment," said DEP's Di-
rector of'Sustainable Ini-
tiatives Deas Bohn. "If
every Floridian adopts a
few of these ideas


throughout the year, they
can make a huge differ-
ence in our efforts to pro-
tect the environment."
The following is a
month-by-month list of
simple "green" resolu-
tions for 2009:
MARCH: Save on
Water Usage With
Spring approaching,
March is a great time to
make changes at home
that conserve water. By
replacing a typical 3.5-
gallon toilet with a 1.6
gallon model, a family of,
four will save more than
11,000 gallons of water
per year. Also, take short-
er showers and replace
showerheads with an ul-


tra-low-flow version. Re-
pair dripping faucets by
replacing washers one
drop per second wastes
2,700 gallons of watei per
year. For more water con-
servation tips visit
www.dep.state.fl.us./drou
ght/tips.htm.
APRIL: Celebrate
the Earth April 22 is
the 39th anniversary of
Earth Day. This year take
a moment to look at how
to reduce waste at home
by recycling.

minum can saves enough
energy to power wtelevi-

was recently included in the exhibition
American Landscapes at the Maryland
Federation of Art in Annapolis, Mary-
land. He currently resides in Baltimore
where he is an Associate Professor and
Director of the Photography Program at
the College of Notre Dame of Maryland.
His photographs featured in the NFCC
exhibit are entitled the Point Reyes se-
ries.
"This series was inspired by my first
experience with the coast of the Pacific
Northwest," said Delanoy. "Being from

the east coast I was taken aback by the
topography and the constant flux of the
environment and the impact of the ele-
ments upon the landscape. The single im-
ages are the result of a contemplative in-
teraction with the terrain, based on for-
mal continuity, rather than presenting a
traditional panoramic vista."
Artist Dawn Roe is a resident of Winter
Park, Fla. and is featuring .paintings from
a series entitled Interior Landscape in the
NFCC exhibit.
"My photographs are constructed in fa-
miliar, interior spaces as they most suc-
cinctly address the implied intimacy of
personal space," said Roe. "Though the,
referencing of psychological states is im-
portant to the work, it is the complicated
phenomena of just how perception leads
to recollection that I draw from most."
Artist Gabriella Soraci is a resident of
Eugene, Oregon. Her paintings featured (
in the NFCC exhibit were made during a


stay at the Vermont Studio Center in the
winter of 2008.
"They reflect my experience of the
snowy light entering into the studio, and
my interest in both plastic space and dec-
orative space," said Soraci. "Through at-
tention to the particular light, color and
value of the setting, and the arrangement
of the objects within the larger composi-
tion, I can capture a delicate space paral-
lel to a sensation of deep contemplation."
The public is encouraged to visit
NFCC's current art exhibit and to attend
the opening reception on Wednesday,
March 18, 5-7 p.m. The exhibit is open
through April 13 in the NFCC Art
Gallery, located in the Student Center
(Bldg. 9) on the NFCC campus in Madi-
son, Fla.

rable double life. By day
he is a pharmacist in Tam-
pa and at night he plays
second trombone in one of
the Bay Area's most popu-

March 20, at 7:30 p.m., in
the college's Levy Per-

is a substitute show for the
college's Lyceum Series
originally scheduled act,
The Moscow Cats Theatre,
whose bookings for early.
2009 were canceled due io
legal issues within the'

"F -1


sence of almost a quarter
of a century.
A 1972 graduate of Co-
lumbia High School, Far-
rell had played in concert
and marching bands in
* schools, and Alfonso
Levy's stage and jazz band
during high school, and
then a year with the LCCC
stage band, before other in-
terests, including pharma-
cy; started occupying his
time.
Flash forward a few
'decades, by which time
Farrell had moved down-
state.
"In the 1990s I began to
get interested in old time
radio programs and heard
the big bands. I loved the
music and decided I'd start
playing the.trombone again
and try to join a big band. I
bought a trombone off
ebay and started playing
again' and it was like learn-
ing for the first time!" Far-
rell laughs.
After playing for two
seasons with a community
concert band Farrell decid-
ed to start his own eight-
piece band, "just so I could
play the kind of music I
liked."
"About that time a big
band north of Tampa need-
ed a trombone player and I
.auditioned and joined.
Then I was contacted by a
groom that liked my eight-
piece band and asked me if
I could expand it to a big
band and play his wedding
reception."
Farrell then searched the
internet and called around
and found some musicians
that were willing to play,
then he bought some
arrangements, had some
rehearsals, and formed the
Cigar City Big Band. The
band's name came from
Tampa's huge cigar indus-
try and being known as


"the Cigar City."
"We played the groom's
wedding reception, at the
Tampa Yacht Club and he
gave us a great review and
we've been playing ever
since," Farrell notes.,
While not about to give
up his' apothecary day job
(in obeisance to his father,
who for many years was
the pharmacist at Collins
Drug Store in north Lake
City), Lee Farrell doesn't
deny that his true love is
big band swing. He thor-
oughly enjoys his fellow
musicians-"I feel like the
guys are family"-and is
Happy and proud to be
coming back home with
his band and vocalist
Campbell ("not only does
she have a dynamite voice
but she sure dresses up the
bandstand!"j and hopes for
a big turnout on March 20.

ther ticket information to

GAMETIME


E.E.A.R. 2: Project


Origin gets, an A-


By Cody Webb,

The lights 'start to flick-
er as you step into a crum-
bling classroom, 'and out
of the comer of your eye,
you think you see some-
thing move. An unseen
girl's giggle penetrates the
silence... .it can only mean
one thing: Alma's back to
teftorize players! The ,
spooky,, telepathic girl in
red is back again to scare.
the pants off of a new pro-.
tagonist. Welcome to' .
F.E.A.R. 2: Project Ori-
gin, which was developed
by Monolith and is rated.
M for heavy use of blood
and gore and lots of vio-
lence and swear words.
Instead of playing as an
unnamed fellow who is
nicknamed "The Point
' Man", players get to strap
on" the boots of one
Michael, Becket as he
joins a scquad6 f Delta '
Force 'soldiers in captur-
ing a renegade executive.
People who explored the
first F.E.A.R. will recog-
nize the executive, but I
won't spoil it here. They,
succeed in finding their
target. but then have the
misfortune of getting
caught up in the explosion
that rocked the cit at the
end of the first game.
Becket gets knocked out,
and when he awakens he
finds himself capable of


slowing down time much
like the Point Man could
do.
First and foremost: the
tedium of wandering
through blank office hall-
way after blank office
hallway is gone. Becket
finds himself moving
through diverse and inter-'
esting areas, like a hospi-
tal near the beginning of
the game, to the destroyed
ruins of the city, and even
into the dingy and dark'
subway system; You'll
fight against different
types of enemies instead'
of the endless Replica
Soldiers from the first
game. You'll find yourself
under attack by the Repli-
ca Soldiers, of course, but
they're joined by Black
Ops forces, mutated
abominations, and you'll
even be assaulted by
Alma a few times.
F.E.A.R, 2 won't amaze
With its graphics, but by
no means is it ugly. It
looks slightly better than
the first game, iny ,
opinion. The' spook factor
has been drastically los -
ered in comparison to the
first game The musicand
environments try their
best to make you tense,
and some areas succeed,
but overall this game just
can't scare you as much-
as the'first game did. I'm
sorry, F.E.A.R. 2, but
there'is nothing scary
about tromping around in
a giant mech and blasting
hapless soldiers without
barely breaking a sweat.
Although, I will give it
credit for. the incredibly
creepy elementary schol'
level.
The controls work'
great, allowing" you to de-
feat the many enemies the


game sends at you. That's
good, too, because most
of the time, the enemy
A.I. is smart. having sol-
diers distract you while
sending a couple around
to shoot you in the back.
They'll even make use of
the new cover system,
which allows you to move
certain items in the envi-
ronment around so you
can take cover behind
them. This is where their
biggest flaw is; however,
since most of the time,'
once they flip over a
table, they'll stay behind
it until you pop them in
their exposed heads.
The biggest problems I
have with Project: Origin
are the disorienting and
horribly done movement,
bounce ad 'how you can't
switch the aggrivating
weapon swap. Would it ''
have been so hard to in-
elude an option to turn off
the movement bounce or
allow players to change
their control schemes?
These faults aren't very.
lbig, only minor annoy-
ances so I wouldn't cry
foul. One last thing wort
mentioning, don't buy this
game solely for the multi-
player. Its strengths are
-the single-player story
and it seems like multi-
player was simply tacked
on as a last, thought.
So, to sum -it up:
F.E.A.R 2 tries to be
scary, but really only ends
,up as a solid shooting
gaine with an interesting,
plot. Would I recommend
it? Most definitely, if
you're a fan of action, or
if youlo%, ed the first ,
gaaje; just don't expect to
have the same nightmares
. again. I'll give F.E.A.R 2:
Project Origin an A-,.

JUNE: Implement
Eco-Friendly Boating
Practices National
Boating and Fishing Week
takes place every June.
With more than a million
registered boaters in
Florida, this is a perfect
time of the year to.imple-
ment eco-friendly mar-
itime practices, such as:'
using phosphate-free,
biodegradable and non-
toxic cleaners; using oil
absorbent material to
catch drips from the fuel
intake and the vent over-
flow; and using marina
pumpout stations and
rinsing holding tanks reg-
ularly. Florida's Clean
Marina Program provides
boaters and marinas more
tips on environmentally
friendly practices at,
www.dep.state.fl.us/clean-
marina/.
.JULY: Travel Green
Leaving home doesn't
mean travelers should
stop being environmental-'
.ly conscientious. Florida'
has nearly 400 hotels,
motels and bed and 'break-
fasts that are designated
members of DEP's Flori-
da Green Lodging Pro-
gram. The program was
established in 2004 to
recognize and reward en-
vironmentally conscien-
tious lodging facilities in
the state. Beyond staying
at a designated property.
travelers can also learn
how to be a green guest
by visiting.
www.dep.state.fl.us/green/
'travel.htm.
AUGUST: Enjoy a
Flo,rida State Park.Stay-
cation With a downturn'
in the econq~'oy and a-
lies trying to save more
money, the term "stayca-
tion" became, a new addi-
tion to the American vo-
cabulary. In addition to,
being affordable, the stay-
cation can also reduce
your carbon footprint.'
The perfect staycation can
be found at any of Flori-
da's 160 state parks. From
mermaids at Weeki
Wachee Springs State
Park to manatees at Blue
Springs State Park, from
the lush gardens of
Maclay State Park to the
beaches of Caladesi Is-
land State Park Flori-
da's state parks have.
something for everyone's
interest, and the regular
entrance fee for most
state parks is $4.00 per
carload of two-to-eight
people, $3.00 for one per-
son in a car and $1,00 per
pedestrian or bicyclist. To
find a state park in your
backyard visit

SEPTEMBER: Par-
ticipate In Coastal
Cleanup Every Septem-
ber thousands of Floridi-,
ans take part in Interna-
tional Coastal Cleanup
Day. It is estimated that
litter and debris harm
more than one million
seabirds and 100,000 mna-
rine mammals and turtles
every year. Help by par-
ticipating in a coastal
cleanup effort near you.
Some of the. most danger-
ous items to sea life dur-
ing the coastal cleanup in-
clude: monofilament
fishing line, fishing nets,
bags, balloons, traps
(crab/lobster/fish) plastic
sheeting/tarps, rope, six
pack holders, strapping


bands and syringes. For
more information on
coastal cleanup go to
www.dep.state.fl.us/cmp.
OCTOBER: Make
the Switch October is
energy awareness month,
a month where consumers
are reminded to make
wise energy choices. The


easiest way to save ener-
gy is to switch from tradi-
tional incandescent light
bulbs to compact fluores-
cent bulbs that reduce en-
ergy consumption, gener-
ate less air pollution and
reduce greenhouse gas
emissions. If every house-
hold in Florida changed
just one light to an EN-
ERGY STAR product,
savings would total more
than $37 million in ener-
gy costs annually. In addi-
tion, Florida could save
up to 351 million kilo-
watt-hours of electricity
per year, which is enough
energy to light all the
households in Tallahassee
for nearly three years, and
prevent almost,540 mil-
lion pounds of greenhouse
gas emissions each year.
For more energy tips visit
www.dep.state.fl.us/green/

NOVEMBER: Have
a Green Thanksgiving -
Thanksgiving is a holiday
steeped with tradition, but
why not start a new tradi-
tion by having i green
celebration? Reducing .im-
pact on,the environment
is something for which
everyone can be thankful.
Here are a few tips on
giving thanks to the envi-
ronment: use homemade
decorations; carry
reusable bags when you
go grocery shopping; at
dinner, use cloth napkins
that can be washed and
used again; and shop on-
line on Black Friday in'
the comfort of your home.
You'll save on emissions
as well as hassle.
DECEMBER: Deco-
rate Green- Instead of
buying plastic and glass
hotida,'decoratioris, try,
making your own orna-
ments that can be reused
,or recycled. Create orna-
ments made from old
greeting cards or cookie
dough,,garlands made
from strung popcorn or
cranberries, and potpourri
made from kitchen spices
such as cinnamon and
cloves.
The DEP staff wishes'
the people of florida a
safe, happy and green
New Year. For more

with the pilot in the days
before the accident. Our
thoughts and prayers are

Linda Sturtevant was un-

dren, her brother said.
"I had only met Linda a
few months ago when she
came to help her mother
take care of her father, but
from the moment we first
met, I knew she was spe-

neighbor, said by email. "It
is hard to believe I will
never see her again,.at least
in this life."
The plane was piloted by
Jimmy Burkholder, 68, of
McAlpin, another neigh-
bor. Burkholder remains in
theburn unit at Shands UF.
His condition was listed as
critical Thursday morning,
a hospital spokeswoman
said.
The flight originated
from Flying Little River
Airport in McAlpin at
about noon, but had landed
at Suwannee County Air-
port, about six miles from
the crash site, to refuel.
The cause of the crash
remains under investiga-
tion by the Federal Avia-
tion Administration. How-


ever, eyewitness reports in-
dicate the plane lost alti-
tude at about 12:45 p.m.
before crashing into a line
of trees surrounding a cow
pasture off 161st Road.
The plane caught fire,
apparently on impact,
burning nearby trees and
brush. It is believed that
Sturtevant died on impact,
authorities said; .
No one on the ground
was injured.
The plane was a fixed
wing Zodiac 601 BD
home-built, experimental
aircraft, FAA spokes-
woman Kathleen Bergen
said by e-mail.
The plane was manufac-
tured in 2001, Bergen said.
It is not yet known
whether a flight plan was
in place, or if a distress call
was made from the plane.
Bergen said those ques-
tions remain under investi-
gation by the FAA.,
Burkholder is a member
of the Experimental Air- :
craft Association, Chapter
797, in Live Oak.
"Usually, folks who
build their, own aircraft are
very experienced aviation
enthusiasts," said Bergen.
Burkholder holds a cer-
tificate for Repairman Ex-
perimental Aircraft Builder,,
according to FAA's Web
site.

Some of the canceled
growers, many of whom
are Hispanic, allege dis-
crimination as basis of
their cancellation. Pilgrim's
Senior Vice President of
Live Technical Services
Randy Stroud testified that
race had nothing to do with
the cancellations. He said
each fa s efficiency over
the pasiyear was the deter-'
mining factor.
Bruno Garcia, a Suwan-
Iiee County grower in
Texas for the hearing, said
he and others were consid-
ered troublemakers for try-
ing to form a union. C.
Robert Taylor, an agricul-


, ture economics professor at
Auburn University, testi-
fied Tuesday that growers
identified as troublemakers
generally feel fear and in-
timidation and expect retal-
iation.
Some of the growers
may testify today, when the
hearing resumes.
"So far it's going pretty
well," Garcia said by
phone Wednesday. "I still
think it's an uphill battle t
but ffeel gbod." "
The hearing is being
held in the U.S. Bankrupt-
cy Court for the Northern
District of Texas in Ft.
Worth. Pittsburg, Texas-
based Pilgrim's Pride

Gulf sturgeon are begin-
ning their annual migration
back into the Suwannee
River during March and
April.
Fish and Game officials
remind boaters to slow
down and be aware these
fish are jumping.
Three people, including
a 4-year-old who suffered
a broken arm, were injured
in accidental collisions
with jumping sturgeon
during 2008.
"Just one person getting
hurt is too many," said
Maj. Lee Beach, regional
law enforcement comman-'
der for the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation


Commission's North Cen-
tral Region, based in Lake
City. "We want people to
be aware the sturgeon are
returning, and the risk of
injury to boaters does ex-
ist."
In 2006, FWC officials
began working on a public
awareness campaign to
alert boaters to the risks of
jumping sturgeon.
"We have posted signs at
each boat ramp along the'
Suwannee, explaining the
risk of impacts with these
fish," Beach said. "We
will be checking those
boat ramps this month to
ensure all the signs are still
in place and our officers
will be on water patrol


during this period and into
the summer months in a
continued effort to educate
boaters on this issue."
What's the best course
of action for avoiding a
collision?
"We recommend boaters
reduce their speed to re-
duce the risk of impact and
to give people more time
to react if they do en-
counter a jumping stur-
geon," Beach said. "The
FWC also recommends
that all boaters wear their
life jackets." -

serve 48 months in prison
for possession of a con-
trolled substance. Keen
was also found guilty of
possession of 20 grams or
less of cannabis, but got
credit for time served on
that charge.
Keen also received one
year's probation and had
his driver's license sus-
pended for two years.
Keen was arrested last
July after a Live Oak po-
lice officer spotted him
and three other individuals
hanging out at Hale Park
after hours. When the offi-
cer approached he saw
Keen grab a clear bag that
was on the hood of a vehi-
cle and duck down behind
the car. The officer later,
discovered the fag, which
was filled with marijuana,
lying on the ground. There
was another bag contain-
ing four white pills, which
tested positive for the
presence of an opiate. One
of the other four persons
told the officer that Keen


tried to sell him marijuana.

5 YEARS FOR DRUG
TRAFFICKING
Warren E. Sheffield HI,
45, 10420 201st Rd., Live
Oak, was sentenced to 5
years in prison for a drug
charge. Sheffield pleaded
guilty March 5 for traffick-
ing in a controlled sub-
stance (hydrocodone).
Sheffield also had his dri-
ver's license suspended for
two years.
Sheffield was arrested-
last August after the
Suwannee County Drug
Task Force conducted a
controlled investigation
with the help of confiden-
tial informants, During
the investigation, law en-
forcement found that
Sheffield sold more than
4 gram, but less than 14
grams, of hydrocodone
and a prescription med-


ication to a confidential
informant.

3 YEARS FOR
FRAUD/CHEATING
Michael John Hemphill,
32, 10541 24th St., Live
Oak, pleaded guilty felony
petit fraud and fraud/cheat-
ing. He will serve 36
months in prison. He will
also pay $250 in restitution
to a wpman from whom he
stole money.
Hemphill was.arrested
last July after a homeown-
er wrote him a check in
the amount of $250 for
materials to repair her
home. Hemphill never re-
turned to complete the-
work or returned the mon-
ey to the homeowner. In,
addition, it was later deter-
mined that Hemphill had
two open warrants and had
absconded from his proba-
tion officer.


at 6,500 to 7,500 fish, each
averaging approximately
40 pounds. Adult fish
spend eight to nine mQnths
each year in the river
spawning and three to four
of the coolest months in
Gulf waters. Sturgeon
tend to congregate in deep-
er and cooler waters with
moderate currents and
sand and rocky bottoms.
Biologists are unsure
why sturgeon jump.
"Scientists are still at-
tempting to figure that
out," said Dr. Jeffrey
Wilcox, FWC biologist.
"The' latest theories in-
clude that the fish jump to
communicate, or it may be
a dominance display. No
rules require all jumps to
mean the same thing.
"I have seen these colli-
sions referred to as 'at-.
tacks.' However, these
fish are in no way 'attack-
ing' when they jump.
They are simply doing,
what they have been doing
for millions of years ...
jumping. They aren't tar-
geting the boaters," Wilcox
said.
However, Gulf sturgeon
can get quite big, exceed-
ing 8 feet and 200 pounds.
"They have five rows of
rock-hard 'scutes' along
their sides, back and belly.
When sturgeon and
boaters collide, the results
can be devastating,"
Wilcox said.
"Sturgeon are protected
by state and federal liw,
just like bald eagles, pan-
thers and sea turtles,"
Beach said. "These fish
can't be harvested."

Stage goes dark at SHS


Continued From Page 1lA

Johnson said the high school industrial
arts program was transferred to Suwannee
Hamilton Technical Center, which forced
the drama program to look elsewhere for
set building expertise.
Money was also a determining factor in
the demise of the program, said Johnson.
Johnson said the theater program was '
budgeted $1,000 a year by SHS in recent
years: The royalties for Grease alone are
$2,500 and each production cost roughly
$3,000 to $5,000,
"We always paid our own bills and we
never lost any money," said Johnson.
"Each show's proceeds were rolled over
into the next show." .
Johnson has been director of the pro-
gram since it was resurrected in 1983. He
was tasked to assist the senior class in


staging a play as a fund raising project.
"Since then we have staged 25 main
stage productions and dozens of smaller
productions in various venues throughout
the community," said Johnson. He said
dozens of students were able to receive
scholarships because of their participation
in the program.
"We have alumni that have gone qn to
be involved-in theater throughout the ,
country as performers, stage craftersi and
theater educators," said Johnson. .
"Every show closes," Johnson noted.
"We have brought hundreds of delightful
characters to life in the auditorium that
will never be forgotten, but the curtain
lhas to bome down sometime. Maybe, like
a hiton Broadway, we will have a revival
someday in the near future. I hope so and
I will be the first to buy a ticket, but for
now, the house has gone dark."

view.
The Rockland Palace
was a Live Oak night spot
at the center of a zoning
controversy in 2008.
Nobles said he did not
retain an attorney to fight
the ethics charges.
"I never consulted.an at-
torney because I felt I
would be completely vin-
dicated," he said. "I've
been here 32 years and
I've never had my integrity
and honesty questioned."
Thomas said he filed the
charges against Nobles in
response to what he called
a "nasty letter" that Nobles
wrote him concerning the
Rockland Palace.
"He was falsely accus-
ing me of interfering with
the Rockland Palace (zon-
ing issue)," Thomas said
JThursday.
Thomas said that when
city officials discussed'
closing the night club, the
community came to him
with concerns.
"I have that right to in-
vestigate when someone
comes to me with a prob-
lem. It's my duty as an
-elected official," he said.
Thomas filed the com-
plaint in May 2008. The
investigation was not
made public until the re-
lease of the commission's
findings Wednesday.
City equipment in
use at Gold Kist
The first allegation con-
cerned use of city equip-
ment in August 2005 at
Gold Kist, now Pilgrim's
Pride.
Thomas claimed that
Nobles, in violation of city
policy, sent the city's vacu-
um truck to Pilgrim's Pride
to assist a local contractor
in pump and from a
lift stati
HowWu.es
make an exception when
the work is. necessary "to
provide foi the pulilic


health, welfare or safety of
citizens of the city. "-Th1
ethics panel ruled that the
2005 incident met those
criteria. No other vacuum
trucks were available'forl
hire in the area, and "fail-
ure to address the problem
could have resulted in
clogging a nearby lift sta-
tion which then could have
caused the surrounding
area to be contaminated
[by sewage] which posed
health and safety concerns
to the residents of the
city," according to a report
by the Commission's advo-
cate.
The panel further found
that Nobles was not acting
"with the required corrupt
intent or inconsistently
with his public duties."
The question then arose
as to why the contractor,
Music Construction of
Live Oak, was not billed
for the work until almost
two years later, and only
then after city officials re-,
ceived an anonymous note
questioning the use of city
equipment outside city
limits.
An investigative report
by the Commission found
that failure to send an in-
voice to Music Construc-
tion in a timely fashion
was the apparent result of
a "breakdown" between
City Administrator Bob
Farley and OMI Project
Manager Todd Hunt. OMI
is the private company the
city contracts with to per-
form public works opera-
tions. In any case, the pan-
el cited city Finance Di-
rector Jan Parkhurst's ob-
servation that Nobles "has
no responsibilities relative
to the city's accounting
and billing practices."
Parkhurst noted further
that she was "not aware of
[Nobles] having taken
action to prevent the cii
billing Music Constructit..
concerning this matter."
The amount of the in-


voice -$361.89 .:was an-
other point of contention.
Thomas alleged in his.
complaint that the bill rep-
resented "about 10 percent
of what a private company
would charge." The city
billed Music at rates set by
the Federal Emergency
Management Agency,
rather than at rates compa-
rable to those of a private
contractor. The reason,
Hunt told investigators,
was that services such as
Music required were riot
available locally, and
therefore, "there were no
local' contractors on
which to base the compu-
tation."
The case of the
Christmas lights
Thomas's next complaint'
involved the installation of
electrical wiring in front of
City Councilman Ken'
Duce's home during the
holiday season in 2007.
Thomas noted there was
no record of electrical in-
spections or permits. How-
ever, the Commission's in-
vestigation found the work
was done on city property,
the right-of-way adjoining
Coliseum Avenue, and that
no permits or inspections
were required.
As for claims that the
work was designed to ben-
efit only Duce, a Commis-
sion report noted that Coli-
seum Avenue is a cul-de-
sac and that residents an-
nually.erect a Christmas
tree in a roundabout at the
roadway's end. In the past,
extension cords have been
stretched across the road
to light the tree. In view of
high automobile traffic in
the area during the holi-
days, as passersby admire
area Christmas decora-
tions, Duce feared that the

tree could be lit without
the use of extension cords.
The work order indicat-
ed the project involved in-
stallation of a water meter.
However, the Commission
found no evidence of a
cover-up. When an OMI
employee contacted "Call
Sunshine," a service that
determines the location of
underground wiring in an
area scheduled for excava-
tion, he was required to se-
lect a code from a list indi-
cating the type of work to
be done. "None of the
available choices were a
precise match for the an-
ticipated work," reads the
Commission's report, "so'
in order to complete the
request ... [the employee]
simply selected the code
corresponding with 'In-
stalling Water meter' as the
type of work to be per-
formed."
Two electrical outlets
were also installed on the
right-of-way. However,'
,Duce himself paid for the
materials and labor in-
volved. Duce "does not
personally use the electri-
cal outlets ... and ... did not
otherwiseattain any type
of personal benefit as a re-
sult of the project," the
Commission report con-
cluded.
Keeping the city
council hi the loop
Thomas also alleged that
Nobles failed to report
findings from the Suwan-
nee County Sheriffs Of-
fice, the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement
and the Department of En-
vironmental Protection to
the city council regarding
improper use of city re-
sources.
The Commission found,
that SCSO and FDLE did
not respond to Nobles' in-
quiries. The Commission.
' also found that the city
was kept informed of the
DEP investigation.

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Out of


retirement
O, O O
Cookabout
By Tom Daniels
Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray
Leonard and Michael Jordan
all came out of retirement at
least twice. Common names _
in the world of sports. But
what about chefs? The St. Francis Xavier
Church sponsored Italian night this past
weekend and went deep in the depths of the
bullpen to find me as a featured cook. They
went even deeper to find the Johnny Vale
songs. They already had Mark Cingolani,
who brought 20 pounds of Lasagna and Pat
Pell, the Chicken Cacciatore champion.
Why did they need a washed up pizza man?
The answers ranged from pity to desperation
to, "he has a sports column in the paper."
First up I needed a Mickey Goldmill, just
like Rocky Balboa. I found Melinda Bean
rno farther away than my own heat press
machine. At this stage more help would be
needed, the vocal inspiration of a Knute
Rockne, go no further than Sherrill Ross.
With my team assembled it was comeback

Biologists seek public's help for

horseshoe crab research


Biologists at the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion's (FWC) Fish and Wildlife Re-
search Institute need help from the
public in identifying horseshoe
crabs spawning on beaches through-
out the state.
The best time to fihd horseshoe
crabs spawning is around high tide,
right before or just after a full or
new moon. The full moon on
March 12 and similar conditions on
March 13 will create good condi-
tions for viewing the crabs. The
next full moon will occur on April
10.
Observant beachgoers can report.

shoe_crab and fill out an online sur-
vey; e-mail findings to horse-
shoe @MNFWC.com; or call the
FWC at 866-252-9326.
Biologists also want to know the
number of horseshoe crabs seen by
observers and whether the horse-
shoe crabs are mating. They also
want to know the date, time, loca-
tion and habitat conditions. If possi-
ble, specify roughly how manN are

Primogeniture +

pgrimogeniture is. the law of inheritance whereby property passes to the firstborn male of
mw the family. Although this is considered archaic in: mostmlodern societies, we still see I..Ia
remnants of this in various practices such as the naming of firstborn males after their
rrt fathers, men retaining their last names in marriage (while women often do not), and F
the doting and attention given to firstborns.
rlms 'What seems objectionable to most of us
about primogeniture is simply. the
unfairness to later-born children and to
females. And, we sho uldnot be too quick
I. to presume that only primitive societies
practice this archaic law of inheritance.
Modern societies may practice
..,primogeniture in more subtle ways. A
.:'- recent study done in Norway foundthat
firstborns tend to have higher IQ's than
later-born children; and
they found that this, was
largely 'a result of the m
increased attention that
I parents give their firstborn
children. Some of this
I increased attention may be
S unavoidable, given that
there are gong to be
I competing demands on
I parents' time once there
are several children in the
I family. But, parents should
sake special precautions so
as to not privilege one child
over one another, whereas
based on birth order, gender, ,
or any other characteristic.
We are all God's children, and
we should treat everyone like
the brothers and sisters that
we truly are. ,aW


Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to
dwell together in unity!

"I promise to
honor and cherish
you, in sickness
and in health, for
richer or for
poorer, in the
good times and
the bad times, -
forsaking all oth-
ers, till death do
us part." Sound
familiar? Of
course. These
words (or some- Hear
thing similar)
make up our Matt
marriage vows, .
ad on the'day of y Ang
our wedding, we
n mean every sin-
gle word; the question is,
do we still mean every
word? '; .
-A vow is defined as a
_, olemn promise; one by
S which a person is bound to
an act, service or condi-
tion. Being bound or "tied"
to what we promise is one
S dlue these are not words to
say or take lightly.
S In Ecclesiastes 5:4-5, the"
S ibl has much to say
bout the seriousness of
Sn asking a vow:
"When you make a vow
t6 God, do not delay in ful-
flling it. He has no plea-
Ssure in fools; fulfill your
-vow, It is better not to vow
-a than to make a vow and
not fulfill it."
In our modern culture, it,
seems the wordc of our
wedding vows have be-
come part of the "tradi-
tion" of getting married.
This "tradition" makes it
common Tpr couples to
profess their love "'till
Death do us par;,.' while:
holding the wild card of
divorce as a possibility if
things don't work out. Thtigs
is in direct opposition to
-our definition of a vow
mrnaking us "bound" to
what we promise. The in-
struction to not make a-
vow rather than make one


t

ers
SLand


and not keep it,
only applies to
those who
haven't already
said "I do."
(Ecclesiastes
5:4-5) Vows are
voluntary, but
once we make
them, our re-
.mainihg option
is to get busy
fulfilling them..
One last
thought about
fulfilling our
vows: if is
tempting to
base our com-
mitment on


how well our spouse is do-
ing in this area, but I have
yet to witness a ceremony
that included an "If, then"
clause in the.wedding. (If
they do their part, I'll do
mine) It is our responsibili-
ty and in keeping with our
vows to set some bound-
aries with a spouse that is
violating them. Keeping .
. our vows doesn't mean
pretending things are fine
when they aren't, or just
silently suffering, just the
opposite. It is a call to
fight for your marriage by
acknowledging what ig '
wrong and seeking a solu-
tion, because both of your
hearts matter!

Blessings,

Angie

Vows are meant to


be taken seriously


By Derek Maul

This past Saturday
I flew from Tampa
to Wichita, via Dal-
las/Ft. Worth. I was
flying the friendly
skies up up and .
away, hoping the air-
line was ready when
Iwas, so they could
earn their wings
every day and tell me I was now
free to move about the country.
On one leg I sat next to a lawyer
and former attorney general; the
man was bona fide character. He
noticed I was reading from my
book, "GET REAL", and we talked
about faith for a while. "My wife is
really interested in that kind of
thing," was all he would say.
IHe was returning from a mission
to hand-deliver a check for
$260,000 to a poor family in Flori-
da. It was the last action of a com-
plex trust settlement and the recipi-
ents did not know they were benefi-
ciaries.


S200 Chevrolet HR 200 Chevrolet hmpala 2009 Chevrolet Impala


"Mark," I said (not his
real name). "Did they ac-
cept the check?"
"Of course," he
S replied.
"Were you enthusiastic
about handing it over?" I
asked. "Or did you just de-
liver the check and walk
away?"
"It was a great experi-
ence!" he said. "Why do
you ask."

You see I was thinking about
faith again. We have this amazing
treasure; much more interesting
than two hundred sixty thousand
dollars. You can't even begin to
price the value of a relationship
with the Living God. Yet, more of-
ten than not, we fail to deliver the
news with any real enthusiasm, and
people decline the inheritance as if
they're merely passing up another
magazine subscription or a life in-
surance sales pitch .
I've been wearing out this central
theme recently, but it bears repeat-
ing because the implications are so.

powerful and far reaching.
"We need to live as if we mean it!
Why? Because God most certainly
does."
I'm convinced that if more people
of faith lived in a spirit of authentic
meaning, modeling an apprehension
of the implications of Grace that re-
tools us down to our very founda-
tions as people, then it wouldn't be
so hard, or so false, or so staged for
us to share the good news. Instead
we'd simply have to live in a man-
ner that revealed the truth.
Think about it.
