LETTER TO

THE EDITOR


To the Editor:


This letter is in regard to ethical charges filed
against me with the Ethics Commission of the State
of Florida by Councilman Benhie Thomas. Thomas
charged that actions taken by me as Mayor of the
City of Live Oak were illegal aid unethical.
In reality, Councilman Thomas was upset that I
questioned and challenged certain actions he took in
regard to: the Rockland Palace situation. In a letter
written, to him I stated, "I respectfully request that
you refrain from interfering with the lawfulrperfor-
mance of duties of the Fire Chief, Building Official
and Code Enforcement in regard to actions taken
concerning the issue of the Rockland Palace." He
took offense to my letter and in turn wrote a letter in
which he threatened me by writing," I am having an
attorney look at yo0r letter and may be forwarding it
to the Florida League of Cities, the Ethics Commis-
S sion and the niew spaper."
Councilman Thomas' complaint \vas frivolous add
S unfounided. He attempted to use the' Ethics C9mmis-
sion to punish and slander me. In an interview print-
S ed in the Suwannee Democrat he admitted he made
the complaint against me because I had written what
:: he perceived as being a "nasty letter."
One does not file a complaint'with the Commission-
because of a perceived' "nasty letter." Heput me and
my family through ,a year of emotional distress, This
complaint cost the city, thousands of dollars in! lost
S man-hours and the State thousands to investigate the
complaint. By making these frivolous charges, Coun-
cilman Thomas has pui himself in serious jeopardy.
"The Ethics Commission looks upon these type ac-
tions with great.displeisure. In fact, his actions vio-
lated State Statutes by filing the complaint, I knew I
had done nothing illegal or unethical. I was confident
that I would be completely exonerated. I did not even
consult or hire an attorney. This saved the city tens of-
thousands of your dollars in legal fees to defend me.
The hearing before the Commission took less than
five minutes. There were no comments' or questions
by the Commission Members concerning my actions.
There was no question of mi innocence by the eight
member panel. A motion was quickly made and 'the
vote taken. The commission found ,"there was no
probable cause to believe that the Respondent, as
'Mayor of the City of Live Oak, -violated Section
S 112.313(6).'" of the State Statutes. That means there
was no reason for the complaint to be filed in the first
place.
There will be some that will continue to think and
even say that I must have done something wrong just
because the complaint was filed. The Ethics Com-
mission does not play. They did a very thorough in-
vestigation. They inter% ie'%wed many people involved
and reviewed many. records and, documents. Again,
they found nothing that would suggest I had done
anything wrong. There is perhaps a culprit here, but
it is not me.
Much of my success as an elected public servant
for the past 32 years is founded on my honesty and
integrity. I have never nor.wilt1 ever knowingly do
anything unethical, illegal or deceptive. I would not
violate the trust that has been placed in me. My moral
and ethical character will not allow me to do any-
thing different.
I look forward to continuing to serve you with the
same caring, zeal and energy that I have served you.
with for the past 32 years.

tends to be more durable. Scrape any loose paint
from the trim. Caulk windows as needed. Make
sure the caulking is dry before painting over it.
You may need to give the windowsills an extra
coat of paint. Open the windows enough so that
the paint doesn't dry them shut permanently.
Paint inset panels first, then paint the outer trim.

Transient Ischemic Attack Prevention
A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is characterized by a temporary
interruption in blood flow to the brain, caused by a blood clot. The
attack usually lasts only a few minutes, with symptoms typically
resolving within 1 hour. If symptoms last longer than 24 hours, it is
defined as a stroke. Approximately one in three individuals who
experience a TIA eventually experiences a stroke, often in the first
year following the TIA. Signs and symptoms of a TIA include
dizziness, slurred speech, sudden blindness, and sudden weakness
or.numbness on one side of the body. Although risk factors such as
family history, age, race, and gender cannot be changed, healthier
living can reduce the risk of a TIA.
Once a TIA has occurred, treatment is aimed at preventing a
future stroke. This can be accomplished with therapies aimed at
dissolving the clot. Anti-platelet medications or anticoagulants may
be recommended. Aspirin or clopidogrel (Plavix) are recommended
for prevention in individuals whom have already experienced a
stroke. Clopidogrel is an appropriate alternative for people allergic
to aspirin. The combination of aspirin and extended-release
dipyridamole (Aggrenox) also may be prescribed for prevention in
individuals whom have previously experienced stroke.

easily, intensify quickly
'and move rapidly because
of the current conditions.
Statewide, the Keetch-
Byramn Drought Index
(KBDr) currently stands at
520, well above normal for
this time of the year.
Moreover, the index shows
that nearly half of Florida
. is well above the statewide
average and is experienc-
ing "severe" dry condi-
tions. The KBDI measures
available soil moisture and
runs from 0 (saturated) to
800 (desert-like).
Since Jan. 1, Florida has
had 1,024 wildfires that
have burned 24,730 acres,
compared with 508 fires
impacting 11,292 acres at
the same time last year.
Because the lightening
season has yet to begin,
virtually all of the fires
that have occurred to date
were caused by humans
and were therefore avoid-
able.
Additional tips for resi-
dents to help prevent wild-
fires include:

Never leave a camp-
fire unattended.
Don't throw, ciga-
rettes or other lighted ma-


trial out of car windows.
'- Clear gutters of
leaves and other debris,
and remove vegetation
from around homes, creat-
ing a 30-foot defensible
space;
Do not park motor
vehicles or equipment in'
areas where the hot cat-
alytic converter could ig-
nite grass, leaves or debris.

vention actions you can
take, and recommenda-
tions to help increase the
probability that your home
and community can sur-
vive a wildfire disaster,

26 brush fires

recorded in

a single week

By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

Suwannee County Fire Rescue
responded to 26 brush fires from
March 8-14, SCFR records show. Dry
weather and occasional high windsare
to blame, officials say. Just over four
inches of rain was recorded here since,
Jan. 1, according to data from the'
Florida Automated Weather Network,
a service provided by the Unversity
of Florida.
According to Florida Commissioner
of Agriculture and Consumer Services
Charles HA.Bronson, wildfire activity
has doubled in Florida since a year
ago.
"Prevention is the key," Bronson .
said in a press release on his Web site.
"We're asking residents and visitors'
alike to exercise extreme caution'
when you use anything that involves
fire or high heat."
, According to Bronson, 1,024.
wildfires have burned 24,730 acres
statewide since Jan. 1..This is up from
508 fires impacting 11,292 acres at the
same time the previous year:
Here are some tips fob preventing
wildfires: never leave a campfire

the proper use of the device and that it
would likely be in operation by late
April.
Deutsch said Friday she didn't need an
electronic device to confirm what she
already knows.
"It's pretty clear that if you can hear it
from a mile away it's too loud," she
said.
Track owner Billy Golightly had a
different take on the matter.
"The noise ordinance has been
buried in the LDRs (Land
Development Regulations) for
years," he said Friday. "It's never
been enforced. For some reason,
when.it's our issue, they take

Car flips

when tire

By Jeff Waters

A Live Oak woman escaped
!:serious injury early Friday when
a tire went flat on her car and it
overturned, the Florida Highway
Patrol reported.
Kristine A. May, 44, was
eastbound on CR 136 around 6 ,

result of a nail, said FLIHP. The

The zoning board in January cited
excessive noise as one reason for
refusing to allow the track to be
reopened. However, that determination
was based in part on evidence
introduced by the track owner.


County fire chief:

Scanner call

was result of

misunderstanding
Continued From Page 1A

officials say the alert, ordered broadcast by
Suwannee County Public Safety Director
Charlie Conner earlier this month, was
based on a misunderstanding..
Suwannee County Fire/Rescue routinely
uses city hydrants to refill their tanks. Live
Oak Fire Chief Chad Croft said he never
had a problem with that, but recently asked
Conner to instruct his crews to begin
taking city water from a central location,
the city fire station on Duval Street.
Conner said Friday that he had thought
Croft meant county fire crews were no
longer allowed any city water, and that's
why he sent that message out over the
airways.
The misunderstanding was soon cleared
up, Conner said.
"We're looking forward to a good long-
term relationship with the city," he said /
Friday. "I really appreciate the city
allowing us the use of their water."
Croft said he asked for the change so
that he could more precisely account for all
water used. When county crews got water
from city hydrants in the past, he said, they
had sometimes failed to report it. Croft
'said he never intended to deny county
responders the use of city-water.
"There was no issues," said Croft, "(Due
to) the demand for accountability
standards, we want them to come to the
station."
The city does not charge the county for
the water.
"I understand that water costs money,'
said Conner. "One thing I will ensure Chief
Croft isto do everything I can to make sure
we get all our city water from a central
location."
Conner added that SCFR is working to
find alternate sources of water.

Hard times haven't hurt the library


Continued From Page 1A

other programs now
encourage online
applications and
communications. The
library provides access to
these through its E-
Government services.
Linda Sanderson, branch
manager of the Suwannee
River Regional Library in
Live Oak, said 100-110
users flock to the library's
14 Internet computers daily.
and folks often have to get
on a waiting list to gain
access.
"They are used from the
time we open to the time we
close," Sanderson said.
The library received four
more computers with
Internet access on Monday
to accommodate the
increased usage.
The Live Oak library also
features a wireless network:
Branford's public library
will be going wireless
within a couple of weeks
and eventually all area
libraries will do the same.


Sanderson said library
registration has increased 20
percent and the check out
rate is up 10 percent from
this time last year.
"Many people have told
us they are buying fewer
books and magazines and
are using the resources of
the library instead," Hales
said. "DVDs are also still
quite popular as people find
it is an economical way to
see a movie, a National
Geographic special,
biography or whatever."
Robin Lake, of Live Oak,
depends on the library's
wireless network to do
homework and check email.
She visits the library four
times a week, the days she
doesn't attend class at Lake
City Community College.
S"I'm just glad that they
have Internet," Lake said.
"It helps out so I don't have'
to travel to the school and
use their Internet."
The library also attracts a
number of after school
students.
Shawn Brown, 13, was at


tie library Monday
checking his MySpace page
and "hanging out with
friends."
"It is something to do to
wait for wrestling practice,"
he said.
Amire Jones, 14, checks
out movies and books and
plays games on the
computer.
"It's a place where I can
get peace and quiet," he
said.
Justus Lewis, 14, is
tutored weekly by Sarah
Luther, 17, at the library. He


said he comes to the library
about twice a week.
Rachal Poling, 11, sat in a
rocking chair reading a
book titled "Red Dog" by
Bill Wallace.
Hales said the library has
seen record numbers for all
its programs and services.
"Historically libraries see
spikes of use during tougher
economic times," he said.
"It only makes sense that
people are looking for good
cost effective ways to find
information, to further their
work skills, to entertain and

educate their children or to
find ajob."
Hales said reduced
government revenues
coupled with the increased
public use have strained
resources. More library
traffic means more books
and computers are needed.
And increased computer
usage brings the need for
more maintenance and


repairs.
Hales said though the
increase affects the ability to
best serve the higher
number of users, he
welcomes the increased
activity.
"It's great that people see
the value and ability of the
public library to serve
them," he said. "We have
always been here for that."

contracts.
Adalberto Brito took the
stand on the second day of
a hearing in federal court
in Fort Worth, Texas.
North Florida poultry
producers ar -asking a
bankruptcy judge to
reinstate their contracts
with the nation's largest
chicken company.
Brito testified through a
translator that a Pilgrim's
field manager treated himn
poorly because he is of
Cuban descent. Further,
Brito claimed he lost his
contract to produce eggs
for Pilgrim's after his,
name surfaced in media
reports on a meeting of
North Florida chicken
growers in January. The
meeting was in part a
strategy session to address
the cancellation of some
poultry producers'
contracts.
Brito testified that a
Pilgrim's representative
had earlier told him egg
producers' contracts were
not being canceled.
However, he was notified
soon after the meeting that
his contract had been cut.
In addition, despite his
having spent upwards of
$10,000 preparing chicken
houses for a flock be had
been promised, he was
denied a poultry
production contract as


well, he said.
Pilgrim's says it used a
ranking system to
determine which growers
were most productive. '
Contracts of those at the
bottom of the scale were
cut. However, Brito
testified, a Pilgrim's field
representative had in effect
"run" his farm and was in
a position to order
alterations that affected.
productivity.
Translation problems
brought the day's
proceedings to an early
halt. The translator spoke a
different dialect of Spanish
than Brito, whose
testimony is expected to
resume March 31 with a
ne%% translator.
Bruno Garcia of
McAlpin, whose poultry
contract withPilgrim's
was cut, expects to testify
at some point in the
proceedings. He seemed
upbeat when contacted by
phone Saturday in Texas.
"I'm feeling better about
how it's going," he told the
Democrat. "Normally
something like this
wouldn't have gotten this
far. I appreciate the judge
agreeing to hear our side.
of the story."
The hearing began
March 10 but had been
recessed until Friday.

feed costs and a glut in the
worldwide poultry market.

by the NCAA seeding

team makes the Final Four.
You must remember each

March Madness 101
Continued From Page lB

Do not pick teams on
the basis of their football Sportabout
records. North Carolina, By Tom Daniels
Louisville, Connecticut
and Pittsburgh will not
be in the football national championship picture.
Xavier, Stephen Austin and Robert Morris are nice
.names but not national champions. Go with a dog
:name like Duke or Gonzaga. Cornell could beat
Missouri, if they were in the brain bowl. Cleveland
,State and Radford are probably colleges you never
:heard of. Go with the chalks, that's favorites in regular
'language. For novices stay with #1 and #2 seeds to
,have a shot. Let the know-it-alls pick the long shots
:and prove just how much they don't know. Good luck.
It :will all be over April 4.

David and Lee Laxton coached son
and brother Travis Neal Laxton to his
first FHSAA, 1-A High School State
Wrestling Championship title at the
103 pound weight division. The State
,finals were held in the Lakeland
Civic Center Feb..20 and 21.
. .Laxton, who's name Neal literally
means a champion has been wrestling
since the age of five.
"I was wrestling in the 401b.
weight class and weighed only 29
pounds," said Laxton. "Although I
won a lot of matches I didn't win any
major titles until I was seven, and of
course Ifinally grew into a weight
class that fit."
His Dad David took him and fel-
low wrestler Joe McMillan to their
first national competition. The sum-
mer of 2007 the three went to Vir-
ginia Beach, Va. where the two
wrestlers placed and made All-Amer-
ican status at the National
High School Coaches As-'
sociation Nationals.
"It was a great feeling
and a lot fun," said Laxton.
Laxton Last wrestled in
the Disney Duals the sum-
mer of 2008 and made All-
American.
Laxton placed third.last
year in the 1121b. weight
class.
"We had a ninth and a
tenth grader Who wanted to'
wrestle (in the) 103 pound Lc
Weight class, but when the
time came to have our
weights certified, neither
one was close," said Lax-
ton. "I knew I could make
it, but Dad said we would
have to do it the "old
school" way."
Two weeks later on Dec.
5 and 6, Laxton decided to
wrestle in the highly com-
petitive Durant Wrestling
Tournament. Here he
would wrestle in the finals,

SLECA recognizes


two officers for


exemplary work

The State6 Law Enforcement Chiefs Associati6n held its
annual businiess'meeting and awards ceremony at the
Marzuq' Shrine Temple in Tallahassee Wednesday. The
event honored two state law enforcement officers one
for his investigative efforts and the other for his efforts in
general patrol. Also, the organization saw a change of
presidents at the meeting.
Directors and managers of state law enforcement agen-
cies in Florida attended the meeting. Lt. Gov. Jeff Kot-
tkamp, Attorney General Bill McCollum and Deputy
Chief Financial Officer Brian London were on hand to
help recognize the nominees and their families. SLECA
considered 16 nominees, representing 13 state law en-
forcement agencies, for the award.
"You're an inspiration to all of us; you are true public
servants," said Kottkamp when congratulating the nomi-
nees and winners. "We are enormously proud of yoth We,
ask you year after year to do more with less, and you do:
.it. You're making sure we keep violent criminals off the
streets and citizens safe in their homes, and you make
,sure of that every day."
Kottkamp also mentioned the executive order signed
by Gov. Charlie Crist last year that directs the immediate
broadcast of information to the public relating to offend- -
ers who allegedly kill or seriously injure a law enforce-
ment officer acting in the line of duty. It is like the Am-
ber Alert, which rapidly broadcasts information about a
missing child on highway message signs and via the me-
dia.
The Investigative Law Enforcement Officer of the Year
is Detective Michael Vitta of the State Fire Marshal's Bu-
reau of Fire and Arson Investigations.
During the past.year, Vitta investigated 119 cases of ar-.
son. In addition, he arrested 13 people for arson, clearing
multiple cases. He was also recognized for his handling
of a case allegedly committed by a juvenile suffering
from emotional problems. Instead of simply arresting the

State, Federal Authorities Discuss

Consumer Protection Priorities


TALLAHASSEE Attorney Gener-
al Bill McCollum today joined
Charles H. Bronson, Commissioner
of the Florida Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Services and.
Cindy Liebes, Assistant Regional Di-
rector of the Federal Trade Commis-
sion (FTC) to discuss consumer pro-
tection issues facing Floridians. All
three agencies have seen an increase
in the number of complaints reported
to each agency and among the more
frequent topics of complaints are
scams related to financial issues and
the current state of the economy.
' "The time is ripe for disreputable
companies and individuals to capital-
ize on the economic climate and con-
sumers' financial concerns," said At-
torney General McCollum: "It is im-
portant that we cooperatively address
these, issues with federal and state re-
'sources so Florida consumers have
the best protection our collective re-
sources we can muster."
The Attorney General's Office has
received hundreds of complaints
about foreclosure rescue and loan.
modification services .injust the first
months 6f this year, and the Attorney
General's Mortgage'Fraud Task
Force continues to contact companies
to ensure they are 'aware of and are
compliant with the new foreclosure
rescue fraud prevention law.
In addition to complaints about
mortgage fraud. complaints about
credit repair and debt relief services
reported to the Attorney Gdneral's"
Office topped 5.300 last \ear. Last'.
October, the Att6rney General's Of-
fice joined the FTC, the Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-/
vices, and 22 states and collectively
took actions against 36 companies'
engaged in potentially deceptive or
misleading conduct. Allegations ih-
clided making false and misleading
statements to consumers, charging
advance: fees for credit repair ser- ....
vices, violating federal and state laws
governing credit repair organizations
and deceptive, and unfair practices:.
Commissioner Bronson also re-
ported that his Consuimer Services


Division received 204,000 calls from
consumers in 2008, handled about
38,000 written complaints and re-
turned nearly $25 million to con-
sumers in refunds.
"We're coming off a record year of
activity, and the economic turmoil
facing Floridians this year virtually
assures that we'll be assisting even
more consumers in 2009," said Com-
missioner Bronson.
Bronson noted that he has
launched an investigation of credit
card companies that have increased
interest rates on card holders and
changed the due date for payments,
resulting in numerous consumers un-
wittingly incurring late, fees on their
credit cards. He has also increased
compliance sweeps of businesses he
regulates, including telemarketers
and pawn shops, and has brought in
his Office of Agricultural Law En-
forcement to begin criminal investi-
gations of a number of ongoing fi-
nancial scams.
The'FTC's focus in the coming
months will be on issues related to
the economy and financial matters,
including mortgage foreclosure res-
cue fraud, credit repair. -debt negotia-
tion and debt collection efforts.
"Scam artists and fraudsters follow
the headlines and are using the eco-
homic downturn to take advantage of
. consumers who are underwater finan-
cially,"' said Cindy Liebes, Assistant
Regional Director for the FTC. "With
so many Floridians struggling finan-
cially, the FTS lias increased its fo-
cus to preventing harm to those in
debt and confronting companies and
individuals who are victimizing those
consumers."
Of special note are the current edu-
cation efforts on the only true source
of free annual credit reports at
http://www.atniualcreditreport.com,
despite advertisements on other sup-
posedl& free services. The federal
agency has already taken-several ac-,
tions in these areas but reiterated its
commitment to continue working co-
operatively with its state partners on
behalf of Florida's consumers.

Parenting the Picky Eater


if kids had their druthers, most would love to eat candy for
'breakfast, candy for lunch and pizza for dinner, with candy for
dessert. Fortunately, parents typically don't leave it up to the
kids to choose the menu..
But just because Mom and Dad choose the menu, that
doesn't mean son or daughter have to like it. In fact, as any
parent can attest, kids are often picky about what they eat,
and that can be problematic for parents. Getting kids to eat
healthily is not only beneficial for kids' growth and present
health, but good for their futures as well. Studies have shown
that kids who eat healthy foods as children are likely to carry
those positive eating habits with them into adulthood. While
turning a picky eater into less of a problem isn't always easy,
the following tips should ease the transition from a picky eater
into a more cooperative one.
Provide healthy snacks. Parents, can often control what their
kids eat at breakfast and dinner, and even lunch to a lesser
extent. However, it's when children snack that they develop
some of their worst eating habits. Rather than sugar-heavy
snacks such as candy, cookies and soda, keep healthy snacks
-around the house. Fruits and vegetables, low- or non-fat
yogurt and even some low-fat cheeses are far healthier
alternatives than traditional snacks that are heavy in sugar.
Instead of sodas, keep fresh fruit juices stocked in the
refrigerator. Snacks and juices should be easily accessible to
kids.'
Incorporate exercise into your family's routine. It's no secret
adults and children alike should make time each day for
exercise. Parents concerned about their child's picky or
.ufihealthy eating habits might be able to combat those habits
,by incorporating daily exercise into the family routine. For
..example, a nightly post-dinner walk around the neighborhood
will discourage anyone from overeating. And once kids grow
accustomed to exercising each day, they're more likely to
, realize they feel better when that exercise is coupled with a
,-healthy diet.
Parents can set the best example. Kids, particularly younger
children, learn most of their behaviors from Mom ahd Dad.
.0eI; It comes to diet, parents must practice what they

When choosing healthy meals or snacks for kids, parents can forego traditional foods
that are heavy in sugar for healthier snacks and choices that are still delicious.
kids and healthy eating habits, the best example a kid can
have is seeing Mom or Dad making healthy choices.
* Don't be too strict. Kids aren't going to eat the best foods' all
the time, and the occasional soda or candy bar isn't going'to
be too harmful. Choose when and where to allow kids the
occasional treat they wouldn't otherwise get to eat. If you're too
strict, you run the risk of kids going overboard on unhealthy
foods and beverages once you're out of sight, be it at the
school cafeteria or when the babysitter comes over.
