EXTENSION UPDATE


Wildlife Food



P lo t ie d D a y Dr. Ann Blount presenting information during walking tour. Photo: C.Mackqwiak


By Elena Toro
Agriculture/Natural Resources
Extension Agent
UF/IFAS Suwannee County. :
Extension

There's a popular saying that
reads "seeing is believing" and
just a few weeks ago over
eighty avid hunters and
wildlife enthusiasts had the
opportunity to find out which
wildlife food plot blends and cool season forages grow
best in our area.

A "walking tour" of twenty-four wildlife food plots
established at the.UF/IFAS North Florida Research and
Education Center- Suwannee Valley was conducted on
Saturday, March 7. The objective of this event was to
highlight the importance of soil testing, selecting blends
and forage varieties and managing stands throughout the
' cool season to increase chances of having productive
S stands for wildlife.


I
--L
/'.,


The day started with Andy Jackson from the
SSuwannee Co. Conservation District welcoming
attendees arid offering an overview of the importance of
supporting this type of educational event. Joel Love
with the Florida Department of Agriculture and
Consumers Sciences (FDACS) gave a summary of the
field activities conducted from the time the plots were
planted back in the last week of October to the day of
the event.


Dr. Ann Blount and Dr. Steve Olson from the
University of Florida went into, great detail about the
adaptation, nutritional value of the plants and the costs
2! involved with planting different blends and forages.
Finally, I covered the significance of soil testing and
adjusting pH in the soil by liming when soil tests show
adjustments are needed. Chris Menhennett, District
Conservationist was also present to respond to questions
I regarding cost share funds for conservation practices.

During the tour. Joel Love, Environmental Specialist
S "emphasized the importance of conducting split fertilizer
applications so that plants can absorb nutrients as needed
and produce more forage throughout the season. Most
people plant the plots and.never comeback to fertilize"
he added. In addition, Dr. Ann.Blduitt, ForageBreeder
wittl'thb JnifersitN of'FloridaAves able.to, show the I
Difference between forages that are riot adapted to local
climate conditions versus using adapted varieties like the

newly released variety of oats Horizon 201. Varieties not
adapted to our area will suffer disease problems
especially when planted before October 15 and yield
very little or no forage.

The morning was packed with information that
attendees could take back and use to improve their
chances for success when planting stands next season.
Some plots included high quality forages that attract
wildlife such as Oats, Rye, Blue Lupine, Austrian Winter
Peas, different types of greens (Brassicas) and Chicory
among others. This demonstration area also helped
identify blends that perform poorly even when properly
planted and managed.

'Take Home" messages included:
Conduct a soil test to determine pH and the
concentration of nutrients in the soil.
Lime the soil if soil test results call for it.
Read the label in the bag of seed before buying. Use
adapted varieties developed for our particular growing
conditions.
Use forage blends 'to increase the longevity and
* stability of the plot, as well as supply variety to suit
multiple wildlife species.
Winter legumes are more productive and dependable
on the heavier clay soils of northwest Florida, or on
sandy soils that are undeflain by a clay layer, than on
deep upland sands or sandy flatwoods.
The pH of the soil must be a 6.0 or higher for most
cool season forages.
Plant between October 15 and November 15.
SAlways use an inoculant when planting legumes.
As a follow-up to this effort, event organizers are
planning to establish summer wildlife food plots at
NFREC-SV in the coming weeks and conduct an event
later in the summer so that those interested can build on
what they learned during the walking tour. The Wildlife
Food Plot Field Day was made possible because of the
work and commitment of the SuWannee County
Conservation District, FDACS, UF/IFAS Extension and
Research and the UP North Florida Research and
Education Center-Suwannee Valley.

Before I finish this article I would like to share with
you that every year a team of specialists from UF put
together a publication titled "Fall Forage Update" that
includes all the recommended varieties for cool-season
forages based on variety trials. You can access that
publication by going online'to the IFAS Extension '
.. Website- Solutibhsfor Your Life ,

need your help'to promote
awareness and prevent rescued
animals deaths.
The Live Oak Animal Rescue
receives over 70 calls a week to
pick up feral cats and stray dogs.
Most of these wild cats and
many of tie stray dogs are not
socialized and therefore are not
candidates for pet adoption.
A feral cat is one who has re-.
verted in some degree to a wild
state. They are offspring of cats
who were not sprayed or
neutered and left to, produce lit-
ter after litter. These cats are not
socialized to humans and adop-
tion is not an option. However
the breeding of feral cats does
result in kittens and cats entering
the Live' Oak Animal Rescue and


other Suwannee shelters and tak-
ing homes away from aduk so-
cialized cats. Call the City of
Live Oak Animal Control 386-
362-7463 for more information
on a Trap Neuter program or to
donate resources to the Live Oak
Animal Shelter.
The Live Oak Animal Shelter
does have rescued dogs and cats
that are looking for good homes.
The Shelter needs donations to
help buy food and supplies for_
the rescued animals.
First Federal Bank of Florida
donated over $3,500 to ihe Live
Oak Animal Shelter to help build
the shelter and provide necessi-
ties such as fans, a freezer and
electrical and building additions.,
Walmart of Live Oak and Winr
Dixie donate food and supplies
for the rescued dogs and cats.
Call the Live Oak Animal Shel-
ter at 386-362-7463 for informa-
tion on adoption, sponsorship or
the Trap & Neuter Program.


How can you help?

Have your pets sprayed and
neutered.'

Economic recovery payments coming for people who receive Social Security and SSI benefits


By Donna Maitland
Social Security District Manager .
Gainesville

The American Recov6ry and Reinvest-
ment Act of 2009, which the President
signed into law in February, provides for
a one-time payment of $250 to people re-
ceiving Social Security and Supplemental
Security Income (SSI) benefits.
The one-time recovery payments will
go out in May 2009 and all payments
should be received by the end of May. In
April, Social Security will send a letter
with additional information to each per-
son -who is eligible for the one-time pay-
ment. The payments will be sent automat-


ically, meaning no action is required on
the part of the person receiving benefits.
The economic recovery payments will be
made separately from regular monthly So-
cial Security and SSI; payments.
All adults who receive Social Security
benefits, including disabled adult children
(but not minor children) are, eligible for
$250 payment. In addition, all persons
who receive SSI payments, including mi-
nor children, are eligible for the payment.
Anyone who receives benefits or who was
eligible to receive benefits during any of
the three months prior to enactment (No-
vember and December of 2008 and Janu-
ary 2009) will receive the one-time pay-
ment as long as the address of record is in


one of the 50 states, the District of Co-
lumbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, U.S. Virgin
Islands, American Samoa, or the Northern
Mariana Islands.
The payments will be made in the same
way that regular monthly payments are
made. People with direct deposit will re-
ceive their payments electronically. Those
who receive paper checks will receive'
their payments in the mail. People:who
receive regular payments through the Di-
rect Express debit card will receive their
one-time payments through the card.
If someone receives both Social Securi-
ty and SSI, only one payment of $250
will be made. The economic recovery leg-
islation also provides for a one-time pay-


ment to recipients of Departfient of Vet-
erans Affairs (VA) and Railroad Retire-
ment Board (RRB) benefits. However, if
you receive Social Security or SSI bene-
fits and you also receive VA and/or RRB
benefits, you will only receive one $250
payment..The Social Security Administra-
tion will send you this payment.
To assist in processing the payments as
efficiently as possible, please do not con-
tact Social Security unless do not receive.
a payment by June 4. Information is
available at www.socialsecurity.gov and
will be updated regularly.,

covery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, vis-

Suwannee Democrat

Notes fromM

Tallahassee
Matt MIcMillan, a local pharma-
cist, was one of aboit 40 Suwannee
'Coiity residents who spent "'" '-
Wednesday in Tallahassee doing
what they. could to save our schools.
The occasion waq a mass rally at the
Capitol, followed by a sitdown with
Democrat Debbie Bbyd. and Repub-
lican Charlie Dean, our voices in
the House and Senate, respectively.
Why did Mattjake a' day off work
to fight what some might see as a
losing battle?
"My number one job is being a
parent." he said on the steps of the.
Capitol. over the roar of perhaps
2,000 protesters from throughout
S the state. "I'Tm a product of the
Suwannee County school system. I
want my children to have at least as
good as I got."'

The day's most poignant moment
came late in the afternoon, during a
meeting with Boyd and Dean. Loyd
Hall, a retired military man who
made his home in Suwannee County'
in'rthe early 80s, spoke on behalf of
enlisted men and women every-
where.
"We send our young people off to
war. Wee expect them to protect us
from terrorism," he told Dean in a
crowded room in the Senate Office.
'Building. "They 'expect us to edu-
cate their children. If we fail the
children, we've failed our troops.",
Dean, a former Marine, gave as
candid a reply as any elected offi-
cial in recent memory.
A tax hike (for example) might do
the trick for schools, he said, but
what about the folks on fixed in-
S comes, for whom there's little or no
margin for error? '
"I can't fathom having to choose
between a pill, medication, and hav-
ing something to eat," he said. "But
that's the situation some of our citi-
zens are in ... Our first priority is to

WARNING, reading the Mayor's Comer
could cause emotional and intellectual dis-
tress to some. Do not read this article if you
want to read anything bad about our corn-
munity. Nothing but good has ever. ap-
peared in any of my articles over the last
six years. If it is too'long, read only the part
of the article that you are able to handle.
It's been four weeks since I have written
one. I had another thing or two on my mind
to deal with! I have a lot of good things to
tell you about that has gone on in our
Suwannee County Community.
Last month things were pretty quit,
down at City Hall and in the communiVt.
Things have picked up lately. Much of our.
activity in City Hall has centered around,
the stimulus money Congress recently ap-
proved. It is according to who you listen to
as to whether the stimulus recovery pro-
giram will be the salvation or downfall of
'our nation. This is yet to be proven.over the
months and years to come. One thing I do
know, someone is going to get some pretty
good chunks of money. I want it to be the
city and citizens of Live Oak. There are so
,many needs in our community. Another
new sewer plant, rehab of our sewer infra-
structure, a new water plant and tower and
stormwater improvements are just a few of
our needs. I, along with other administra-
tive official have made three trips to Talla-
hassee lately to meet with the boys'with
the bucks. We want ihem to be forever'
mindful of the .needs of our community.
Things looked good andAthen fiot so good.
Last week, the possibility of getting mil-
lions of dollars in grants and low interest
loans was looking mighty good. This week
not so good. Should all of our hopes be re-
alized, many of the projects that have been
'put on hold will come about or at least get'
started and save you 'the residents arid' tax-,
pa) ers millions of dollars that won't come
directly out of our pockets. Let's keep our
fingers crossed.


MAYOR'S
CORNER




Y NOBLES


Last week, the city of Live Oak took
over the sewer and water systems for a
new city east of town. The city accepted
the water and sewer systems for the new
Suwannee Correctional Institution. With
the inmate' population and employees,,.
around 4,000 new bodies will be added to
our sewer system. This'is equivalent to
serving a population of more than half
again the size 9f the current city popula-
tion, thus, the need for another new sewer
plant. As I have told you already, DOC
built antd paid for the facilities and lines.
DOC will pay the city a pretty good hunk
of change monthly to operate and maintain
these facilities. Some have questioned this
arrangement on the part of the prison sys-
tem by asking why didn't they build their
own systems? First, DOC told us from the
start that they' were in the inmate business,
not 'the sewer and water business. To oper-
ate and maintain these systems requires a
very high degree of technical knowledge
and expertise. OMI is certainly up to the
task. They have been responsible for the
city's systems for over ten years and have
done an exemplary job. They have kept us
out of hot water with regulatory agencies

that to the bank as we do each month.

Want to vent? Our

hotline is open 24/7.

Suwapnee 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'wav to let it out. You can let every-
one know how you feel as long as you express yourself in a
respectful way .
Note:.In written entries to Rdnt and Rave, errors in spelling,
grammar or punctuation are those of the authors.
'Looking at the response last week, our commission chairman
needs to reconsider his, opinion on what the majority want here.'
The alcohol thing is gaining in popularity, it is what folks want
& what our budget needs. The comm. needs to concern itself,
more with running the gov't. and less with running people's
lives! ,,
m .
'I'd like to say that I really enjoy the Rant & Rave column; it
gives you an idea of what's going on in people's, minds. There
have been so many comments about loss of jobs in the school
" / ',"', '** ', .,


The lines going to the prison will also al-
low the city to provide businesses from
Lee Avenue and on to the east with much
needed water volume and pressure. These
businesses inside the city have been served
by one inch or less water line and their
business have suffered for many years.
This is compliments of the prison project.
This will enable us to also serve the Water
Management District facility. They have
requested service for years. By the way, the
District will pay for all associated costs.
Speaking of OMI, I bragged on them at
the council meeting last week for the man-
ner in which they keep city equipment. It is
not beat up, scratched and dented. Vehicles
are always washed and maintained proper-
ly. Even "big James'" John Deere looks
brand new. That's his baby and he gives it
plenty of tender love and care. I also
bragged on David Hester, imagine that.
David negotiated with Anderson Columbia
for the killings from the 11th Street paving
project Millings are the old asphalt and
rock that is removed before re-paving. Ifir
stead of $24.00 a load, we got them for
$10.00. David Hester stayed up .until 3:00
A M overseeing the project and counted
every load of millings. He discovered that
we were going to be billed for five more
loads than we received and reported this to
the contractor. They made an adjustment in
our bill and saved us those dollars. Thank
you David.
A notice to proceed was sent to the con-
tractor for the,Marymac drainage project
over in Sherwood Forest and also the
Winderweedle project over on, uh, oh yea,
Winderweedle Street. These projects have
been a long time coming. One thing after
another has plagued these projects. People
have been pretty patient ver the delays.
Now is when the:real patience will-come
into play. They are going to have aamess inl

that money? Also you could maybe do part of the story on com-

A pre-bid meeting with contractors for
the Americans With Disabilities project to
upgrade City Hall to meet ADA require-
ments was held last week. A lawsuit filed
against the city mandated that certain cor-
rections, and rightfully so, be made so
that City Hall will be more accessible to
folks with physical impairments. This
will be expensive but we have a legal as
well as a moral obligation to make these
upgrades. I wish the federal government
had to abide by their own rules. If so, we
would have had a new post office years
ago. This bid also included security up-
grades to City Hall which I may suggest
be delayed due to budgetary short falls we
may experience in the future.

also serve his country as a
Marine. Upon completion of
basic training he will spend six
months studying music at the
Armed Forces School of
Music in Virginia Beach, Va.
Once Willis completes training
he will perform and travel all
over the world as a full time
musician with one of the three
Marine bands.
The process of being
accepted was a tedious one.
"He had to play a prepared
piece of music that showed his
musicality and technical
skills," his mother, Suwannee
High School band director
Cheri Copeland, said recently.
"(He had to play) 12 major
and 12 minor scales and lots of
sight-reading in different key
signatures and time signatures
with different tempos and
styles," Copeland said. The
audition, in February, took
about two hours.
"I'm excited that I will be
paid to. play my instrument and
travel around the world," said /
Willis by email. "I know that I
will become even a better
player."
Willis said his future plans:
*re to one day becoming a
'conductor of one of the Marine.
bands.,
Willis currently plays
trombone in the SHS band.
Willis was a state soloist,
section leader, drum major and
2008-09 Mr. SHS. He was also
part of mhe Small Schools
Honor Band.
As band director at SHS,
Copeland has helped Willis
hone his musical skills.
"Since I was trained in'
music, I could tell early on
that he had a musical gift,", she
said. '"When he was just a
toddler he would d start dancing'
and singing everywhere he
h'eardmtusic and he wasn't shy
about it. Regardless of who,
and how many people were


watching. The more they
clapped and smiled, the more
he hammed it up."
Copeland said Willis grew
up attending band and music
events with her.
"When he had the
opportunity to begin band in
the fourth grade, he begged to
play the trombone," Copeland
said. "He really excelled early
on. I was always afraid that
people would think I played
favorites with him since he
was my son, or worked with
him a lot at home. Actually, he
is where he is today through
none other his own efforts."
Willis loves playing
different instruments, singing
and being in front of a crowd
entertaining,, his mother said.
Earlier in his high school
career he was on the golf team.
And he loves to work on his
truck.
Willis is also well known for
his sense of humor. When
Willis attended Branford
Elementary School in the
fourth grade he held the lead
in the school musical,
Wackadoo Zoo. In this comic.
musical he had to sing, dance
and act. He also participated in
the Mr. Ugly Contest in the
eighth grade at Suwannee'
Middle Schdol:; For that, he
dressed up as a female beauty
contestant, walk down the
runway and lip sync the song,
"I Will Survive." -
"That was the funniest thing
I still have ever seen,"
Copeland'said. "We still watch
it 'from time to time when we
need a laugh."
Copeland couldn't be
happier for her son.
"I am proud and excited that
he will have a career doing
something he loves and is
fun," she said in a recent
interview. "After six months of
paid training, he will begin a
career that exceeds what four
years of college would do for
him."

The Live Oak City Council
on March 10 adopted an
ordinance that will regulate
signs in the city limits. Most,
affected are electronic
message boards signs that
have wording and other
images that roll across the
screen.
George Curtis, city
development manager, said
the new rules will require
electronic signs to display
messages for at least 10
seconds before changing. /
.About 8-10 business owners
will be affected by this
provision.
Curtis said electronic signs
can be a safety issue for
motorists.
"Fifty percent of the cities
we surveyed have outlawed

agencies, Live Oak Police
Det. Sgt. Ron Shaw said
Wednesday.
"The task force has been
working," said Shaw;
Meanwhile, the search
continues for the culprits
responsible for a series of 12
such robberies .
"We're looking at a lot of
different leads to see if they
pan-out," Shaw said.


Shaw said the formation of
the task force has likely
frightened those responsible
for the robberies into -leaving
town. Live Oak was the target
of a home invasion robbery
about once a week prior to the
formation of the task force.
. The task force is made up
of Live Oak Police Officers,,
Suwannee County Sheriff's
Deputies and officers of the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement.

altogether," he said.
Other rules in the ordinance
include height and placement
requirements, affecting signs
that project out over a
driveway or walkway,
especially if they obstruct the
view of traffic or pedestrians.
Signs will also be regulated
according to zoning
requirements. A sign's height
and square footage must
reflect the size of the property,
scale of the building and
. nature of the business at
which it is erected.
Curtis said existing
permanent signs that don't
meet the new requirements
may remain in place as long
as they are not altered or
enlarged. New, signs must
conform with the regulations.
The ordinance is designed
to.providp safety and help
preserve the aesthetic quality
of the city.
Curtis, who drafted the
ordinance, said the new
ordinance was adopted as part
of an ongoing review of the
city's land development
regulations.

Sunday alcohol sales scrubbed


Continued From Page 1A

the March 3 commission
meeting. County Attorney
Hal Airth said the -
ordinance regulating the
hours of alcohol sales had a
loophole that needed
closing. According to
Airth, the ordinance did not
clearly state whether such
establishments could sell
alcohol on Sunday.
Udell said the
amendment was an attempt
by one commissioner to
stop the sale of alcohol on
Sunday altogether,
including at the Spirit of
Suwannee Music Park. The
park was granted an
exception that allows the
sale of alcohol on Sunday.
Though Udell never used
commission chairman
Jesse Caruthers' name,
Caruthers felt Udell was
referring to him.
Spirit of Suwannee
president and CEO James
Cornett and Caruthers have
disagreed on several issues
over the years.
"Commissioner
Caruthers made several
statements about opening a
can of worms," Comett
said in an interview with
the Democrat Wednesday.
"That suggested his


motivation was an attack
on Spirit of Suwannee."
Caruthers said he was
not the one responsible for
placing the amendment on
the agenda.
"I didn't bring the issue
up, the county attorney
brought it up," Caruthers
said by phone Wednesday.
"We never had discussions
before the meeting, he told
me to put it on the agenda
and I did."
Caruthers said he voted
for the amendment because
he felt that is what the
majority of those in his
district would have wanted.
Commissioner Ivie
Fowler agreed.
"It has nothing to do
with the Spirit of
Suwannee or anyone else
(besides) free standing
bars," said Fowler. "It's
just a housekeeping job.-If
we don't have something
in our ordinance 'about time
we can't enforce it."
Commissioner Billy
Maxwell said he was
pleased with the outcome
of the meeting.
"I didn't have any
problem with the ,
outcome," Maxwell said by
phone Wednesday. "It
didn't expand sales .any
further and I can accept. .


that."
Udell and Wainwright
both said the public
hearing was unnecessary
and the ordinance should
have been left alone.
"My assumption is that
everything is (OK)," said
Udell. "If you watch a ball
game you might want a
little brew, let's don't kill
that."
Udell drew huge
applause with his
comments. He said money
that is spent in other
counties on alcohol should
be spent locally.
"Let's bring some
revenue in this town, '
Udell said.
Udell at one point made
a motion to take no action
on the item, leaving the
loophole in place, but was'
denied by a 3-2 vote.
Caruthers, Fowler and
Maxwell voted no. The
crowd roared in
disapproval. .
Wainwright agreed with
/Udell about leaving the
issue alone.
"I just see that people
weren't breaking the law,
they (bar owners) are,
making a living and putting
people to work,"'
Wainwright said byphone
Wednesday morning. 'To


me it's never been an
issue."
It was an issue to those
in attendance, however.
Caruthers had to call the
meeting to order several
times in response to
outbursts from the gallery.
Randy Thomas, a local
bar owner, said at the
meeting that he is just
trying to make a living.
"I would like to see the
right to stay open on
Sunday," said Thomas.
Thomas is the owner of-
The Keg Room on SR 247
near Beachville. He said
his business has seen a 22
percent loss of revenue'due
to the economy. He has
been able to rfiake up 11
percent of that by staying
open late on Friday,
Saturday and opening on
Sunday.
Jack Boylan told
commissioners he feels bar
owners are being
discriminated against.
'To penalize us that is
discrimination toward us,"
said Boylan. "I think we
should be allowed the same
privileges." "
Boylan is owner of the
Tip Toe Inn in Dowling
Park.
Dan Dixon said bringing
up the issue just causes


stress on the community.
"If you put a stop to
them (bars) selling on
Sunday, is it worth it, it
creates tension," Dixon
said at the meeting.
"People can have. a beer,
big deal. Everybody should
have the same law."
Alfred Linton said he
can relate to both sides of
the issue and agreed with
Fowler.
. "I have friends on both
sides of the issue," Linton
told commissioners. "It's
about choice. We do need
to have clear laws because
without laws we're
lawless."
It's all about revenue
dollars for Wellborn
resident Richard Palmer. '
"The county needs this
money, why are we forcing
our citizens to go to
Columbia County," he said.'
Jody Stem, who also
attended the meeting, '
agreed. "I really do think
we need to rethink where
we're at," Stem said.
"Maybe this isn't the right
way to clean it up."
Erica Linton, however,
supporter of the
amendment, said she is
against all alcohol sales,
not just on Sunday."
"We do want this


loophole closed in this
law," said Erica Linton.
"We want to see a county
that has guidelines, we got
to manage our county in
the way we see fit. We
want to see clean
businesses here."
Current county rules
permit Monday, through
Saturday sales of alcohol at
establishments such as
grocery and convenience
stores for off-premises
consumption.
The ordinance permits
on-premises consumption
of alcoholic beverages at.
restaurants Monday
through Saturday, and from.
1 p.m. to 11 p.m. on
Sunday, provided the
establishment has 750
square feet. of service area,
can' serve 60 or more
persons full course meals
at one time and derives at
least 51 percent of its
income from food or
anything other than
alcohol. In addition,
convention centers, such as
the Spirit of the Suwannee,
are permitted to sell
alcohol Monday through
Saturday, and from 1 p.m.
to 11 p.m. on Sundays.
This exception was granted
in 2002 to' attract more
visitors to the park.

". Plane trailed smbke before

Two five-year-old boys saw smoke coming from the
,. front and underside of a plane before it crashed in a
SuwanmneC.onty-cow pasture March-1 0;-ccoiding to a
preliminary report released yesterday by the National
Transportation Safety Board.
The boys were the only eyewitnesses to the crash. They
were playing in their backyard when they "observed the
airplane flying overhead and noticed smoke coming from
the front and underside" of the plane, reads the report.
One of the boys reported that one wing was lower than
the other and that "it was loud."
SA Federal Aviation Administration inspector
determined that one of the plane's wings made impact
with a tree, causing the plane to hit the ground at the base
of the tree, the report says. The inspector said the top half
of the tree was embedded in the fuselage and that the
entire plane, with the exception of the tail section, was
consumed by a postcrash fire. The' report said the engine
f could not be examined due to the severity of the fire.
The crash resulted in the death of a Rhode Islanid
i woman, a passenger in the plane.' .. .-- '

County Commissioner Wesley Wainwright was asked
if he would like to comment on the housing situation
with the County Fire and Rescue. Wainwright said that
the mold problem with the old building would cost ap-
proximately $50,000 with only a tw6-year guarantee and
that County Fire Chief Charlie Conner would like an op-
portunity to present other options to the council.
_"Grant funds may be. available and if the town of
Branford joins with the county, the qualifying point sys-
tem would be greatly improved," said Wainwright.
The possibility of housing several government offices
in one building was said to make the grant opporrunit) "
more viable. It would also help streamline the expense oi
much needed facilities by Fire and Rescue, the Sheriffs i
Office, Public Safety and the Health Department, council1

Clark expressed concern for the preservation of local
history and artifacts. Clark said that she "could fill the

discussed and the council approved a motion for Clark to,
gather more information.

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT


March 24 is World Tuberculosis Day


By Melissa Garrison, R.N.,
Tuberculosis and Epidemiology Nurse,
Suwannee County Health Department
Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by
germs that are spread from person to per-
son through the air. TB usually affects the
lungs, but it can also affect other parts of
the body, such as the brain, the kidneys, or
the spine. A person with TB can die if they
do not get treatment.
What Are the Symptoms of TB?
The general symptoms of TB disease in-
clude feelings of sickness or weakness,
weight loss, fever, and night sweats. The
symptoms of TB disease of the lungs also

include coughing, chest pain, and the
coughing up of blood. Symptoms of TB
disease in other parts of the body depend
on the area affected.
How is TB Spread?
TB germs are put into the air when a
person with TB disease of the lungs or
throat coughs, sneezes, speaks, or sings.
These germs can stay in the air for sever-
al hours, depending on the environment.
How Do You Get Tested for TB?
The Mantoux tuberculin skin test is
performed by injecting a small amount of
fluid (called tuberculin) into the skin in
'the lower part of the arm. A person given
the tuberculin skip test must return with-
-in 48 to 72 hours to have a trained health care worker
look for a reaction on the arm.
What Does a Positive Test for TB Infection Mean?
A positive test for TB infection! only tells that a person
* has been infected with TB germs. It does not tell
whether or not the person has pldgressed to TB disease.
Other tests, such as a chest x-ray ;and a sample of ,spu-
tum, are needed to see whether the person has TB dis-
ease. ,
How is TB Disease Treated? .
TB disease can. be treated by taking several drugs for ,6
to 12 months. It is very important that people who, have
TB disease finish the medicine, and take the drugs exact-
ly as prescribed. If they stop taking the drugs too soon,
they can become sick again; if they do not take the diugs
correctly,.the germs that are still alive-may become resis-
tant to those drugs. TB that is resistant to drugs is harder
and more expensive to treat.. Staff of the local health dp-
partment meet regularly with patients who have TB to
watch them take their medications. This is called directly
observed therapy (DOT). DOT helps the.patient codm-


plete treatment in the least amount of time.
The Centers for Disease Control recommends Tuber-
culin skin testing only for individuals that are at risk for
developing TB disease.
High risk groups include:
IV drug users
Immigration to the US (within the last 5 years) from
a high TB prevalence country
Residents/ employees of high risk congregate set-
tings (jails; nursing homes, hospitals, prisons)
Someone that works in a lab that-processes TB speci-
mens
Persons with HIV or those at high risk for HIV in-
fection
Organ transplant recipients or other immunosu-
pressed persons (persons receiving certain treatments
with steroids).
* The Suwannee County Health Department requires a
risk assessment (series of questions) to be performed on
anyone that comes in for tuberculin skin testing. If a risk.
is not found, the TB skin test is not recommended. If the
test is required for school entry or your job there is a
$10.00 charge for the test.
TB skin tests are available Monday, Tuesday, Wednes-
day and Friday from 8-11 and 1-4 at the Live Oak clinic.
They are available at the Branford clinic on Mondays
from 8-11 and 1-4. You must come back to the clinic 48-
72 hours later to have the test read.
If someone tests positive for TB infection, a medical
evaluation is done at the health department and a chest
'x-ray is obtained at no charge to the client if needed. If
our TB physician decides medications are needed, the
client may obtain those medications at the health depart-
ment at no cost.
For more information about the Tuberculosis Program
at the Health Department, contact Melissa Garrison, RN
at 386-362-2708, extension 216.

.-TAX TIP

ChildTax Credit
Depending on your income and the age of your children, you could score
. a hefty income tax credit and possibly earn a tax refund. In 2008, more -
lower-income workers will qualify for a larger refundable tax credit.
Credit worth as much as $1.000 per child
If you. have children who are under age 17 at of the end of 2008, you can
get a $1,000 tax credit per child on your tax return. A tax credit reduces
your tax bill dollarifor dollar, so three qualifying children, for example, can
cut what you owe Uncle Sam by $3,000. The credit may be limited.
And the credit does not affect the exemptions you take for dependents --
worth $3,500 apiece in 2008. The child tax credit is in addition to your
exemptions.

Zinnias:

A thrifty favorite!


Gardening tips
from the Live Oak
Garden Club
By Lucille Bobiney Heinrich
Short on cash? Want more color in
your garden?. Looking for a flower that
will take full sun? Want to attract but-
terflies? Want something easy to grow?
Well, look no further! For the price of
$2 or less, you can purchase a packet of
zinnia seeds that will deliver all of the
aboye to your garden!
There are few flowers easier to grow
than zinnias. You can simply sow seeds
on prepared soil in your garden when
all danger of frost has passed, or you
can start seedlings indoors four to six
weeks before the last expected frost.
When seedlings have developed two
pairs of true leaves, they need to be
thinned by pinching off all but the most
vigorous seedlings at ground level.
Seeds scattered on the ground. also need
thinning in the same manner. Leave
about 4 to 6 inches between low grow-
ers, 8 to 10,inches between intermedi-
ates, and 160to 15 inches between large
giants. Zinnias prefer rich, well-drained
soil..
Zinnias can be used as border plants,
fillers for bare spots, planted in contain-
ers, or massed in a garden all their own.
Creating a Zinnia gardens the perfect
way to teachchildren about gardening,
and they will delight in the big, bright,


bold colors. Zinnias come in all colors
(except blue), sizes, and types. Orange,
red and bright-pink varieties are espe-
cially attractive to butterflies. They are
prolific bloomers, can withstand full
sun (at least 6 hours a day) and heat,
and will make the difference between a
so-so garden and a showy, brilliant gar-
den.
Zinnia maintenance is minimal, just
w. ater, weed, and keep moist. Zinnias do
not require a lot of water, but they
should be irrigated during dry weather
to keep them blooming at their best.
Also, deep less frequent watering gets
water tothe plant roots where it is most
needed rather than frequent, shallow
watering, Zinnias can survive in soil
that is on the dry side but will wilt in
very dry conditions. It is a good idea to.
fertilize with an all-purpose fertilizer
about twice during the growing season.
Problems with Zinnias are few, but
there can be issues with fungus, bacte-
ria, and mildew. Space plants to allow
for air circulation, and trickle irrigation
is best as sprinklers tend to increase the
chances'of disease.
Trim. off faded flowers and cut often
for bouquets; this will promote more
and longer blooming flowers. Zinnias
are annuals, but they will often reseed
themselves coming back in the spring
better than ever. To insure they will
come back, when blooms have faded in
the fall, the seeds can be harvested and
kept dry for nexi season which means
the few dollars invested keeps on giv-
ing!

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Cutler's..


Last Stand

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
The NFL drama of
the month is Jay
Culer, the Denver
Bronco's"Quarterback
demanding to be
traded. Cutler was the
subject of a trade by his new coach
Josh Mc Dowell. When the trade
backfired and Cutler found out he
was livid. After all Cutler was an all
pro last year and you would be hard
pressed to rate him anything less then
the 5th or 6th best NFL quarterback.
Coach Mc Dowell a product of the
Patriots w anted Matt Cassell who was,
traded to the Kansas Cit. Chiefs.
Cutler is a product of Vanderbilt and
beat SEC teams with a group of
future doctors, law% ers, and
accountants as his offensive play
makers. Things w ill heat up again
come draft time. It is very difficult to
coach in the NFL %when you and N our
quarterback don't speak. Jeff George
had his moments with a coach or two
.and Norm Van Brocklin was a pain
both as a quarterback and later as a
.coach. This maybe a new dimension
.or dementia.
Billy Martin the former baseball
.manager of no less than a half a
'dozen teams routinely beat up a
player a year but usually talked to
them. Fred Hutchinson the manager
of the 61 N.L. Champ Reds didn't
talk to star Vada Pinson for half a
season. When Pinson finally' asked
the skipper what he did \wrong, Hutch
replied I didn't know you spoke
English. Pinson was born in Memphis
Tennessee. Wilt Chamberlain went
through a fe\w years not talking to his
coach when he was a 76er. I am not
sure what his coach could of told him.
Joe Don LooneN. running back of
Oklahoma and NFL fame punched his
coach out. Latrell Spreewell tried to
choke his coach death. I guess there.
are worse things than not talking.

FWC arrests three in, alligator poaching case


Officers with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) arrested three people in an
alligator poaching case last week in
Glades County.
While on routine patrol, Officer
Scott Van Buren and Lt. Pam Steel-
nman observed a pick p truck pulled,
halfway off Couifty Rad 73 1,
which is south of Rainey Slough.
There, they observed a man in a
canal 'along the road; he was retriev-


ing an alligator. A woman was in the
bed of the truck, and a 17-year-old
male stood next to the truck. Upon
inspecting the:truck, officers found
three loaded rifles, four pieces of
fresh alligator meat and two live
hatchling alligators. The officers
found
three butchered alligator carcasses
near the canal.
Three people Joshua J. Todd,
DOB 10/12/90, of Alva; Natalee M.


Grant,
, DOB 1/13/91, of Lehigh Acres;
and a juvenile were charged with
seven misdemeanor counts of taking
and-possessing American alligators.
All three were booked into the
Glades County jail.
"We hope this case sends a strong
message to would-be wildlife poach-
ers," Steelman said. "We will find
.you and hold you accountable for
criminal acts."

FWC sets April 15-16

meeting in Tallahassee

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) will meet at the Tallahassee-Leon
County Civic Center April 15-16. FWC meetings are
open to public participation.
, On Wednesday, April 15, the agenda will focus on
inland issues.
Commissioners will consider draft rules concerning
taking and possession of wild freshwater turtles and
regulations governing establishment and operation of
game farms. The Commission will review and consid-
er a draft rule removing the peregrine falcon from
Florida's list of endangered species. Final action on
those proposed rules will take place at a later meeting.
Also on Wednesday, Commissioners plan to take fi-
nal action on rules to establish hunting season dates
and other regulations for the Kissimmee Chain of
Lakes Area and the Babcock Ranch Preserve.
Wednesday's agenda also includes consideration of
the revised Gopher Tortoise Permitting Guidelines.
In addition, the Commission will consider granting
an easement to the City of Punta Gorda for installation
of a 1,500-foot wastewater line across the Fred C.
Babcock/Cecil M. Webb Wildlife Management Area.
On Thursday, the Commission will address marine
fisheries issues. A final public hearing will be held on
a proposed rule that would establish administrative
penalties for blue crab management program viola-
tions.
Commissioners also will consider draft rules for
grouper that would be consistent with anticipated fed-,
eral regulations intended to help reduce fishing pres-
sure so that grouper fishing in the Gulf of Mexico can
improve in the future. These proposed rules would de-
crease the daily recreational aggregate bag limit for
grouper from five fish to four per person and include.
all shallow-water groupers (black, red, yellowfin,
scamp, yellowmouth, rock hind and red hind) in the
existing Feb. 1 through March 31 closed recreational
harvest season for gag grouper in Gulf state waters.,
The proposed grouper rules also would reduce the
commercial minimum-size limit for Gulf red grouper,
and for all importation arid sale of red grouper, from
20 inches to 18 inches total length and eliminate the
Feb. 15 through March 14 commercial harvest closure
for red, gag and black grouper in Gulf state waters.
Pending federal rules will reduce the overall commer-
cial harvest of grouper in the Gulf through lower har-
vest quotas and an important spawning season/area
closure. '
In other marine fisheries action, the Commission
will review and discuss Florida's permit fishery and
various federal marine fisheries management issues.
The meeting will convene at 8:30 a.m. both days.,
The civic center is at 505 West Pensacola St. in Talla-
hassee:. .'
Anyone requiring special accommodations to partic-
ipate in the meeting should advise the FWC at least
five days prior to April 15 by contacting the FWC's
Office of Human Resources at 850-488-6411. If you
are hearing- or speech-impaired, contact the FWC us-
ing the Florida Relay Service at 1-800-955-8771

Get Outdoors Florida!

Resolution and kick-off event
provide call to action

SGet out OOr opportunities
S I and guidance

O i S I a door experiences to achieve

Gov-
ernor Charlie Crist,
and his Cabinet are an-
ticipated to sign a resolution on March
24 encouraging families to Get Outdoors
Florida!
The resolution recognizes the Chil-
dren's Outdoor Bill of Rights and pro-
motes Get Outdoors .Florida! activities
April 4-5 and throughout the year.
Following the signing, a group of
children are participating in an outdoors
"play station" set up at Cascades' Park
near the Korean Memorial Park in
downtown Tallahassee to participate in
several nature-related activities hosted
by the Get Outdoors Florida! coalition
to demonstrate how outdoor activities
can stimulate children's imagination and
spirits.
Through hands-on activities, children
will be able to participate in activity sta-
tions such as casting a reel, geocaching,
birding, and using binoculars. The pur-
pose is to get children outdoors and
play..
Because an array of social issues can
be connected with our nature deficit,
Get Outdoors Florida!
Members will be more than just a
champion of kids enjoying the outdoors
by providing families and individuals


tain Florida's natural resources. By con-
necting people with nature,
we enhance opportunities for greater
environmental education, public health,
child welfare, tourism, fish and wildlife
conservation and land management. In
a study of environmentalists' formative
experiences, the most frequently cited
influence was childhood experiences of
natural, rural or other relatively pristine
habitats.
This Get Outdoors Florida! event
would not be possible without the sup-
port of these partners: the Florida Fish
'and Wildlife Conservation Commission,
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Florida
Division of Forestry, U.S. Forest Ser-
vice, Tallahassee Museum, Capitol
Health Plan, and Florida State Universi-
ty.
The Get Outdoors 'Florida! coalition
is a wide array of partners coming to-
gether to address societal needs includ-
ing public well-being, health issues, and
natural resource conservation. Our mis-
sion is "Engaging communities, families
and individuals in outdoor experiences
to achieve healthier lifestyles and sus-
tain Florida's natural resources." For

doors Florida! Web site at:

Visit the Sick


Those suffering with illness or injury are often doubly.afflibted, suffering the primary pain
or, discomfort of their illness or injury as well as the secondary pain of being isolated or cut
off from normal human contact. When we know of someone who is sick or injured,
one of the first things that we can do to establish contact is to send them
a card or a brief note to simply let them know that we are
th inking of them and that we care.
Then, find out if they want to have
visitors, and when it would be
convenient for us to visit. Before
S,%is citing, ask if there is anything that
'.--/ they need, and when we visit,
consider bringing a small gift,
such as a magazine or the
newspaper. During our visit,
especially if it is crowded or
there are others waiting to see
them, we should not stay too
long. In addition, we should
not be afraid to tala about the
person's illness or injury,,
unless they signal that they
would rather npt talk about it.
If they are in the hospital for a
long time, we could visit them
periodically and we should not
forget about them after they
"go home. Like every corporal
work of mercy, visiting the
sick is about attending to. the
needs of those less fortunate
than us, so we should be
attentive to those needs, and
ask the person what they
need. Finally, pray for the sick,
and even offer to pray a short
prayer with the sick person.

And the prayer offaith will save the sick man, and the Lord
will raise him up;and if he has committed sins,' he will be
forgiven. Therefore confess your sinsto one another, and
pray for one another, that you may be healed.

R.S.V. James 5:15-16

RELIGION


It's okay to

ask questions

By Derek Maul

"They [the disciples] .
kept asking 'What does he ,ln
mean by.a little while? We\
don't understand what he is
saying...'" (John 16:17-18)
Okay, pop quiz. What ,
did Christ's disciples say
more than anything other
than "Who remembered to
bring lunch?" during their three years of
ministry and travel together?
Answer: "Huh?" "Duh?" "Run that by us
again..." or "We don't understand what the
Master is saying."
That said, we have to give these guys some
credit. Two thousand years :ago ,the world was
very flat-'- almost two dimensional. Everything'
they understood was definable in terms of'
"This is what we see.""'This is what we feel."
"This is what we have been taught is true."
In developmental psychology, the idea of
"conservation" is a learning landmark.
Conservation means to conserve, the image'or
the possibility of the desired object even when
it has been hidden. At some point in
development the child will continue to look for
a toy even when it is hidden from sight -
understanding that it is still there, even though
it is beyond the perception of the five senses.
Likewise, it was a real struggle for the
twelve disciples to grasp Christ's teaching,
because he referenced a world that was beyond
the scope of their language or their experience.
Traditionally, God had acted in history, in real
observable time and space. But Jesus was
talking about the spiritual world, of going away
and of coming back, of sending another
comforter.
I believe it was to the disciples' credit that
they were willing to ask questions.
Jesus is still willing for us to ask questions;
hard ones and basic ones too. God is not so '
small that we cannot sit back and wonder
sometimes. In fact, the more tidy and neatly
wrapped our God is, the more we diminish the
idea of deity through small imagination and
lack of faith.
I know this much in the realm of
conservation. "Yet I am not ashamed, because I
know whom I have believed, and I am
persuaded that he is able to keep what I have
entrusted, to him against that day (2 Timothy
1:12) :'":

There is a story of
a couple that ap-
proached their 50th
wedding anniver-
sary. To celebrate,
the wife prepared
her husband's fa-
vorite meal and wore
her new dress to

all the preparations
in place, over dinner
she asked her hus-
band for a special

gift in return: "Hon- By A
ey, since it is our an-
niversary, I would like to
hear'\ou say that you love
me." T which her husband
replied, told you fifty
years ago mat I loved you,
if I change my mind, I'll let
you know."
Do you ever feel taken
for granted? Unappreciat-.
ed? On the flip side, are
you intentional about let-

ting others
know that you
appreciate
them? Why are
we so quick to
praise sports he-
roes or celebri-
ties for their ac-
complishments,
while assuming
that those most
important to us
know that we
are grateful for
all they add to


our lives? The
dictionary defines "assump-
tion" as a fact or statement
taken for granted; an as-
suming that something is
true. In our relationships,
assuming that others know
they are loved and appreci-'
ated can do some real dam-
age.
The Bible is clear regard-
ing this matter of taking


nothing
others for granted. In Ro-
mans 12:10, the apostle
Paul writes,
"Honor one another
above yourselves."
The word "honor," indi-
cates one whose worth
brings respect or fame; a
person of superior standing.
Who takes the time to hon-
or a mother or wife for the
daily responsibilities she
fulfills day after day? How
about that husband who
shows up each day for a job
he doesn't really enjoy or
spends time with the kids,
or the child who studies
hard to make a good grade
or helps out without being
asked? Most often, the only
cheering section for our
family is ourselves, and it
can be pretty tough to feel
valued or motivated to stay
the course when no one
seems to notice. There is


no better place to apply this
verse than in our own
homes, where the worth of
those we love should give
them superior standing.
Let's appreciate them espe-
cially in the day in and-day
out routine of our lives, be-
cause their hearts matter!

Blessings,
Angie

The lion and the lamb controversy


By Rev. James L. Snyder

Every year about thistime, a friend
of mine always says, "If March
S!comes in like a lion it will go out like
a lamb." I would not mind it so much
if I knew what in the world he was
talking about.
That is the thing about friendship.
We allow people to go on and on.
about something without the slightest
notion of what they are talking about
and yet, we most heartily agree- with
their opinion. I suppose thit is why
we are still friends. We put up with
their eccentricities in hopes that they
will reciprocate.
Friendship like this is the perfect
example of Ying and Yang, and I'm
not even Chinese, although Egg' Foo
Yong is not so bad and I can play
chopsticks on the piano. To put it in
language I can understand, there is a
little bit of me in thee and a little bit
of thee in me, so it hardly behooves
me to speak ill of thee.
I suppose when we think of the lion
and the lamb we are thinking about
opposites. The lion is facing one way


and the lamb is facing another way.
Then somebody will say, "Well, op-
posites attract." I suppose they do, but
what in the world do they attract?
And why should I be interested in. it?
I think when my friend is talking
about the lion and the lamb is refer-'
ring to the fact that the month of
March is full of opposites. But in my
book, they are not very attractive.
On the one hand, you havesa cold
blistery reminder of the winter that
has just passed, and on the other
hand, you have the, slightest indica-
tion of the warm weather to come.
Both are a handful and if I had anoth-
er hand, I would give it to the person
who came up with that idea.
I'll tell you what my frustration is.
As soon as I amadjusted to a certain
situation, it changes on me. It is not
that I have anything against change, I
simply hate it. And the lion and the
lamb represent to me change. The
only change I really like is the change
rattling in my pocket. But keep that
i between us and do not tell the gov-
ernment. After all, they are extremely
interested in change, particularly. our


change.
It was the Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage who brought this to my at-
tention just last week. I was trying to
figure out my friend's "in like a lion
and out like a lamb" proposition
when my wife made a proposition of
her own: Normally, I like proposi-
tions. But her proposition was not to
my liking because it represented
change.
"It's spring," she observed as
though I did not know what time of
the year it was, "and I think it's time
to clean out the garage."
Speaking of the lion and the lamb,
she was acting like the lion and I was
supposed to act like the lamb and fol-
low her roar. However, between the
roar of the lion and the confusion of
the lamb, I did not know who or what
was coming or going. I know who
wanted to go, but being the gentleman
that I am I held my peace. I'm not
quite sure how long I can keep hold-
ing my peace, after all, it is getting a
little heavy and I'm not getting

younger.
It seems to me, it was this time last
year that my wife mentioned that the
garage needed to be cleaned. And if
memory serves me correct, the year.
before that the same thing occurred.
And the year before that. And honesty
compels me to admit that I cannot
think of a year that this was not true.
Somebody is in a rut.
I guess the person was right who
said that the more things change the
more they remain the same. I would
not make any accusations but I think
someone.is trying to pull the wool
over my eyes:
But another old saying we have is
that turnabout is fair play. The problem
with that is that I'm turning about so
much I'm getting to feel rather dizzy.
Sure, I could see where the garage
should be cleaned like last year, but.
this year I'm putting in for a change. It
is my turn to be the lion and I say this
year we will be different and not clean
the garage. I know it is a radical
change. But then, turnabout is fair play
and I want to be fair if anything.
I like what King Solomon said in the


Old Testament. "To every thing there
is a season, and a time to every pur-
pose under the heaven:" (Ecclesiastes
3:1 KJV). The seasons come, the sea-
sons go and the more they change the
more they remain the same.
Nobody knows how many springs
have come and gone since the begin-
ning of time. And nobody can calcu-
late how many more. But spring will
follow winter, winter follows fall, fall
follows summer, summer follows
spring and we are back were we start-
ed in the beginning.
The only time we really have is,
now.
"(For he saith, I have heard thee in a
time accepted, and in the day of salva-
tion have I succoured thee: behold,
now is the accepted time; behold, now
is the day of salvation.)" (2 Corinthi-
ans 6:2 KJV).
