WELLBORN NEWS



James Koester



and Marcella May


PAGE 3A


By Wendell Snowden
In 1924, James Koester and Marcella
May-were born in Indiana. Marcella grew
up with a brother named Luther who hap-
pened to be best friends with a skinny kid
named James. You, know how it is with
best friends. James.had his eye on Marcella
but apparently was not ready to make the
big move (marriage). Luther was thinking,
"What if James marries some other girl?
Yep, he would lose his best friend." So,
Luther started pushing Marcella to marry
James. As Marcella told it, he did forceful
pushing and prodding and nagging. So, in
1941, Marcella and.James got married and
Luther's friendship with James became a
lifelong friendship. Marcella and James are
celebrating 68 happy years together.
Marcella worked at .General Electric in
Indiana, and James was a certified elec-
tronics expert, electrical expert, and a certi-
fied locksmith. In 1960, the happy couple
moved to Key West, where Marcella
worked at the Naval Exchange, and James
continued his work in electronics. When
they decided to move to Wellborn in 1986,
Marcella and James were offered positions
in.high-paying jobs in New York, to no
avail. They chose to move to. Wellborn..
James served in the U.S. Navy and
served on armed guard details aboard the
WTSS Pueblo from 1941 until 1946. James
was very proud of being able to travel the
world and see things and go places he had
neyer dreamed about. James and Marcella,
have two daughters and one son. One
daughter lives in Wellborn, the other in In-
diana, and the son' lives in Ocala.
James told me a little about his child-"
hood days, and I know he was a happy boy
because he got away with things like this:
At age 9, James liked to hunt which he
sometimes did on the way to school. If he
shot anything, usually rabbits and squirrels,
he would clean them in the field, stow
'them.in his lunch box, and take them on to
school and home afterwards. Could we do
thattoday?
James and Marcella lives in Wellborn ...
have been quiet. They like to keep to them-:


James Koester and Marcella May.

selves on their seven-acre property and
tend to their plants and'antique cars. They
have several beautiful blooming dog-
woods, roses and orchids, plus several or-
ange and lemon trees. Marcella has an or-
chid tree from Key West which she has
kept alive since the '80s. James put in a
pond where he keeps goldfish (koi). They
enjoy sitting outside by the pond and lis-
tening to the birds and night-sounds.
-Did I mention James' and Marcella's an-
tique cars? James has several cars that he
has restored and as many more waiting
their turn for restoration. He has a 1975
Toyota that he bought new, a 1956 four-
door Chevy, a 1965 Mustang, a 1952 Mor-
gan some of you won't know what a
Morgan is. It has two wheels in front and
one in back. How about a 1970 Lincoln, a
1931 Studebaker President, a 1960 Dodge
Polara, and several '50s and '60s Volkswa-
gens? I don't know how they manage to
keep up with everything. I'm getting tired
just writing about these two.
So, now you've met two more of Well-
born's distinguished citizens. Hopefully
our hometown Wellborn articles will bring
k you more stories on our families and some
more of our history!
And, if you're wondering the answer
is, "No!" James and Marcella do not sell
their antique cars. The cars are too much
like family. Each car has a story and if
you're lucky and happen to run into James
arod.4ynd. he just might spend a.little
tune telling yuab outt pme,of them.

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Treatment
Lupus is an autoimmune condition characterized by chronic
,inflammation that may affect the skin, joints, kidneys, heart, and or
lungs. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is the most common
and a serious type of lupus. The immune systems in individuals
with this condition attack both foreign substances in the body as
well as healthy tissues. Signs and symptoms of SLE include
depression, fatigue, easy bruising, and or joint pain. Symptoms of
lupus typically occur as periodic flares, with intermittent
rermssions.
Individuals affected by SLE are encouraged to lead a healthy
*lifestyle so as to minimize the impact of the symptoms, including
regular exercise, a healthy diet, and adequate rest. For mild to
moderate symptoms, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs'such as
ibuprofen (Advil, Motriri) and naproxen (Aleve) are available over-
the-counter or with a prescription for the, treatment of inflammation
and pain. Anti-malarial medications such as hydroxychloroquine
(Plaquenil), may be prescribed for the prevention of SLE flares,
although.there is no relationship between malaria and lupus.
Corticosteroids, such as prednisone, work to reduce inflammation,
although are typically only used for short-term treatment.

OPINION






Fiscal malpractice
An article recently ran in the Suwannee Democrat re-
counting U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson's trip to City Hall in his
attempts to quell Floridian disquietude over the $787 bil-
lion "stimulus" bill just Passed by Congress. The Demo-
crat reports, "Nelson said the stimulus bill would provide
'electric shock therapy' to an economy that 'has gone into
paralysis."' Well, Dr. Nelson, I believe your prescription
for this diseased economy is set to weaken it even fur-
ther. And, frankly, the American people should sue you
for. fiscal.malpractice.
Americans are rightfully wary of this massive spending
bill solely because of its price tag:. a, whopping $787 bil-
lion. It has been repeatedly noted that this proposed
spending exceeded government spending from the found-
ing of our country to President Obama's inauguration.
According to many liberal and conservative economists,
the national deficit for the current year will reach $1.6
. trillion, which is three times last year's shortfall. They
also project-it to continue its exponential trend for years
to come. One might ponder, "HoW will the government
minimize this national debt?" The answer: the well-de-
served earnings of your children and grandchildren will
be. committed to heavy taxation. In addition, the double
standard is obvious: "President Bush was mismatiaging
the money when he allowed excessive military spending
in order to protect the country (which was his' duty as
President)." Yet, Obamaand Pelosi can pass an outra-
geous bill, tripling the national debt. Not surprising...
"But, wait, you can get an $800 per couple tax credit if
your family has an income of $150,000," a liberal might
decry. That is true, but a family can only spend that
money once. This spending bill is only a temporary fix
to the American economy and doesn't compare to perma-
nent tax cuts. Tax cuts will put money in the American
people's pockets, causing instant economic stimulation.
The more money they possess, the more they can, allo-
cate to pay for their mortgages and establish a stable fi-
nancial basis.
The Democrat:also reports that our county qualifies for
"$1.6 million for road%%ork projects." This new legisla-
tion is laden with such projects that do not create jobs,
but increase the workload of those who currently have
jobs. Additionally, most of this is unnecessary, for most
of the projects involve repaving roads'that are perfectly
fine and travel-friendly. Just more of your tax dollars to
go to government waste.
And to think good ol' Dr. Nelson voted for this spendu-
lus bill. And I bet he didn't even read all of it.
J. W. Boatright III is a senior at Suwannee High School.
The American Dream appears monthly in the Democrat.


Jobs wanted

ads to run

free of charge
Effective today. the Suwannee Democrat will no
longer charge local folks to run ads in the classified
when they are looking for a job.
It does not seem right to charge an unemployed per-
sonr to place an ad when they are looking for employ-
ment. Our new policy will be to allow any Suwannee
County resident to place an ad in the job wanted cate-
gory of up to 25 %vords for at least a month. There are
no age restrictions and you don't have to be looking
for full-time work. You don't have to be unemployed
and certainly don't have to tell us if you are out of
work. Other criteria will be developed as the idea
takes shape. Suggestions will be welcomed.
You may drop your ad off at our office, located at
~11 Howard St. East. Live Oak, fax it to 386-364-5578
or email it to janice.ganote@gaflnews.com.
Remember. employers in Suwannee County are
looking for workers, and they regularly buy help want-
ed ads. You can bet they will be reading the Suwannee
Democrat and checking for people w ho need a job. We
hope to help you find the best job possible.


Please address letters to: Letters To
The Editor, Suwannee Democrat,
PO Box 370, Live Oak, FL 32064.
Please include your full name, address and daytime
phone number. We ask this so we can verify your letter

USDA report shows impressive 5-year

gains for Florida agriculture

Agriculture providing good economic news
during these challenging times, Bronson says


The number of Florida farms and the
value of Florida agricultural product's
sold rose substantially from 2002 to
2007, according to a report recently re-
leased by the U.S. Department of Agri-,
culture.
Florida Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson said the impressive
performance by the state's agricultural
industry in the past five years shows that
it remains 4 vital pillar of Florida's eco-
nomic strength.
"For decades, this economic engine
has provided Florida with a dependable
source of revenue and jobs," Bronson
said. "While other sectors of the econo-
my have been on shaky ground lately,
agriculture has strengthened and become
more productive. This report about
Florida agriculture comes at a time when
we all really need some positive eco-
nomic news."
According to the USDA Census of
Agriculture, the number of Florida farms'
increased by 7.7 percent, from 44,081 in
2002 to 47,463 in 2007. Additionally,
the market value of agricultural products
sold by Florida farmers hit $7.8 billion
in 2007, the highest recorded level in the
state's history.
, "These statistics are a testament to the
determination of our state's farmers,"
Bronson said. "Even when confronted
by drought, hurricanes, pests, disease,
and stiff foreign competition, they con-'
tinue to plant, harvest, rebuild and inno-
vate. Florida's farmers not only produce'
food and fiber for consumers, they pro-
vide a solid economic base for our
state."
The USDA Census shows that 90 per-
cent of Florida's farms are family opera-
tions, while about 10 percent ate corpo-
rate entities. About 32,000 Florida
farms, or approximately 70 percent,
have 50 acres or less.
* The report also.reflects that changing
face of agriculture in Florida, with in-
creases in the number of farms owned
by a variety of ethnic groups including
Native Americans, Asians, Hispanics
and African Americans. Ethnic owner-
ship of farms .increased by 26 percent,
from 2,038 farms in.2002 to 2,582 farms.


in 2007.
Augmenting the results of the USDA
Census is the University of Florida's re-
port, "Economic Contributions of Agri-
cultural, Food Manufacturing, and Nat- '
ural Resource Industries in Florida in
2006," which indicates that more than
766,000 jobs are attributable to these
sectors, up from 648,000 jobs in 2002.
Additionally, these sectors generate an
estimated $100 billion overall economic
impact and contribute $2.98 billion in
indirect taxes to local, county and state
governments.
"While the USDA report indicates an
overall expansion of Florida agriculture,
it also raises some points of concern,"
Bronson said. "Farmers' net earnings, or
income, declined significantly for the

Bronson touts National Ag Day


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Com-
missioner Charles H. Bron-
son joined state agriculture
officials across the nation
to recognize Friday, March
20, as National Agriculture
Day. The day was set aside
to celebrate not only the
abundant food supply agri-
culture provides but also
the tens of thousands of
jobs in every state.
In Florida, agriculture is
second only to tourism as a
top industry in the state,
and even in the economic
downturn, the industry re-
mains a strong economic
engine providing a depend-
able source of wholesome
food, thousands of jobs and
a record-breaking market
value of agriculture prod-
ucts of $7.8 billion. The re-
cently released U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture
census shows that the num-
ber of farms in Florida has
increased by nearly 8 per- -
cent to 47,463 with the ma-,
jority being'small, family
'farms. .:
"It is important that we
recognize the economic
contributions that farmers,
ranchers, food scientists
and others directly or indi-
rectly related to the agri-
culture industry provide to
our state," Bronson said.
.Going forward, the indus-
try will also continue to
help the United States re-
duce its dependence on for-
eign oil as bibmass and
other alternative fuels are
developed with the help of
our farmers.'? '
Bronson says farmers are
also good stewards of the
environment, providing
.green space and'using best
management practices to
improve soil and water to
ensure that these vital nat-


ural resources are available
to future generations.
National Ag Day is host-
ed and organized by the
Agriculture Council of
America and is held to
generate awareness and
support of the industry in
communities across the na-
tion.'Bronson says too few
people understand how im-
portant agriculture is to
their daily lives even,
though almost everything
we eat, use and wear on a
daily basis is because of
the industry.
Bronson encourages the,
public to buy Florida-
grown products or, when
unavailable, those grown
in the United States in or-
der to help American farm-
ers. The country-of-origin
law which requires labels
t6 say where a product is
grown is now in effect. He
also says people can en-.
courage their local, state
and federal officials to
continue supporting the in-
dustry and support agricul-
ture programs in the
schools.
In fact, Bronson support-
ed Ag Literacy Day by
reading to a class of sec-
ond graders on Monday,
:March 23 at The Capitol.
'"Many young people
have little knowledge
about agriculture and its


importance in our society,"
Bronson said. "But the av-
erage age of farmers in
Florida is 58, and it's im-
portant that we encourage
our young people to con-
sider careers in this grow-
ing and ever changing in-
dustry."
Bronson says agriculture
is producing more and do-.
ing it more efficiently than.
ever before. But he says
young minds with new
ideas are crucial to contin-"
uing the advances in farm--
ing technology that are
helping to provide not only'
an abundant but a safe
food supply as well.

Alleged car thief to face charges in burglary


Continued From Page 1A

Hamilton Correctional In-
stitution, called out at
about 7:30 a.m. on March
18, trailed a scent from the
vehicle south across CR
136 and through a weed
field where they observed
size 12 shoe prints, accord-
ing to a press release from
Hamilton Correctional In-
stitution. The trail led them
to the home of Daniel Jay
Brost, 39, at 9016 131st
Loop, where they reported-
ly saw the same shoe
prints at the front door.
Brost was charged with
grand theft auto and tres-

tion Banquet for Christian Mission In

Jail, where he remained as
of Tuesday morning.
Colvin said damage to
the rear of the vehicle ap-
peared consistent with evi-
dence collected in the
Blountstown burglary with
which Brost has been
charged. Sheriffs reports
indicate the damage was
"consistent with the vehi-
cle being backed into a
building." The rear win-
dow was also broken out.
After putting out an
alert, Suwannee authorities
learned that on the night of
March 17, a metallic blue
SUV had backed through
the wall of a cash advance


business in Blountstown,
resulting in the theft of
several hundred dollars.
The burglar apparently en-
tered the business through
the hole in the wall created
by the vehicle,
Blountstown police reports
indicate.
Authorities at the crime
scene in Blountstown re-
covered shoe prints that
match those of Brost,
Suwannee sheriffs reports
indicate.
An employee at the busi-
ness reportedly named her
ex-boyfriend, Brost, as a
possible suspect. She re-
portedly told authorities
she had seen him in a blue


Jacksonville.

Smith praised Suwannee
authorities for their inves-

"I was really impressed
by the Suwannee County
deputies," he said by
phone Tuesday. "They
knew just what to do."
Smith said Brost would
eventually be extradited to

Sweet 16

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
The madness
is almost gone.
Men's and
woman's
natio al
basketball
championships
are in progress as well as
collegiate hockey. Did I say
WBC is also happening?
Sweet 16 has another
connotation for some.
Remember when there were
only 16 Major League teams?
Before 1961 and before
WW II the American League
and National League werd
each composed of eight
teams'. The American League
consisted of the Yankees, who
won every year with guys like
Mantle, Berra and Ford. The
Kansas City Athletics,
formerly the Philadelphia
Athletics, and the Washington
Senators usually dheld he
league up with stars like Bob
Cerv and Roy Sievers. The
Detroit Tigers featuring Al
Kaline, the Cleveland Indians
throwing Early Wynn, the
Chicago White Sox running
Louis Aparicio, The Boston
Red Sox with superstar Ted
Williams, and thd Baltimore
Orioles with all-star catcher
Gus Triandos made up the
league. The Yankees won 14
pennants between 1947 and
1964.
The National League was a
bit different. The Whiz kids
lead by Robin Roberts would
lose the World Series in 1950
and spend the next dozen
years battling the Erie Banks
Cubs for last place. The
Cincinnati Reds, led by Frank

2009 Archery in the Schools Program tournament results


Central Florida schools are the big
winners in the second annual National
Archery in the Schools Program Florida
State Virtual Tournament. Two of last
'year's winners repeated victories in their
'grade level, and one new school took a
. top spot.
For the second straight year, the Fla-
'gler Palm Coast High School team won
the high school division with a team
score of 3,073 points and boasts the
state's top male and female shooters.
Shyla Ramage is this year's high-scoring
girl with 266 out of 300, followed by last
year's winner, Chelsea Blackburn, with a
254. Third place also goes to a Flagler
Palm Coast shooter, Shelby Johnson,
with a 249 score.


There was a three-way tie in the boys'
division, with scores of 269. That score
came from archers Pliny Sohl III and
Tyler Anderson, both from Flagler Palm
Coast, and Steven Vasallo from Altha
High School in Calhoun County. The tie-
breaker goes to the archer with the most
bull's-eyes, but both boys from Flagler
Palm Coast had 10 each.
A shoot-off between Pliny and Tyler at
an awards ceremony on Wednesday,
March 18 in the school gymnasium will
determine the winner. Both the top fe-
male and male shooters receive a special.
custom Genesis bow, Morrell target and
a trophy for their accomplishments.
Repeating its win this years Daniel
Jenkins Academy from Polk County,


with a team score of 2,947. The academy
won the inaugural middle school tourna-
ment in 2008 and came back this year to
reclaim the top spot.
This year's number one elementary
school is College Park from Ocala. Last
year, the school placed second in the ele-
mentary school division. The top three
schools in all divisions will receive gold,
silver and bronze medals for their archers
and a trophy for the school to display.
More than 750 students in 35 Florida
schools competed in their own school
, gymnasiums. All participants received
official tournament T-shirts and certifi-
cates of participation.
"Students who do not normally partici-
pate and enjoy sports-related or extra-


curricular.activities seem to excel in the
program something that invariably
carries over into their attitude, work
habits and other school activities," Flori-
da program coordinator Steve Robbins
said. "It often inspires after-school activ-
ities shared by families and friends,
teaching discipline, respect and self-con-
trol."

Flyball racing classes
Too Hot to Handle Flyball Racing Team will be hold-
ing flyball classes in O'Brien and Live Oak. The classes
will teach you and your dog how to compete as a team.
Flyball is a relay race in which four dogs race against an
other team of four dogs over four hurdles to a box that
they leap upon to release a tennis ball, they catch the ball
and bring it back to their handler so that the next dog on
their team may then run the course. There are two
leagues that teams can compete in to win titles and
awards.
For more information call Cathy at 386-362-4956 or

Family medicine cabinet:

tree, new online tool helps track your medication safety


tiel it comes to the health of their children and even
frerpits, many moms feel it's their responsibility to be as
educated as possible about health and medicine. With the
Iany different medicines out there, it is hard to keep track
if who in the family is taking what and the dangers of drug
Ptactions, interactions and side effects.

4 fact, the incidence of serious drug reactions is
reading, according to a recent analysis of adverse drug
Cents. reported to the Food and Drug Administration
:,DA).

low there is a free online tool to help the "family health
officer" stay informed about the family's medicines:
'ledNotes (www.Drugs.com/mednotes). MedNotes is an
nward-winning, easy-to-use, personalized medication
management program that can be used to track the whole
ily's medications. Developed by Drugs.com, the most
comprehensive online medicine information Web site,
.MedNotes will help mothers and caretakers stay informed
bout their family's prescription and over the counter
DTC) drugs, safety news and possible allergic, food and
rug interactions.

iims are'-gatekeepers of their family's health, from their
ildren to their elderly parents, so it's critical for them to
py informed about their families' medications. But the
,lity is it's hard to keep up with new drug safety
formation coming out nearly every day," according to
.ison Rhodes, "The Safety Mom," and nationally-
cognized expert in child safety. "MedNotes gives
others the important medication use and safety
formation they want -- and peace of mind when it comes
Monitoring and-managing their family's medication
eeds."

%atures of MedNotes (www.drugs.com/mednotes):
Add your medications to instantly assemble relevant


medical information in a simple, easy to read personalized
format.

* Gain immediate access to in-depth consumer information,
drug comparisons, historical news, FDA alerts, drug
interactions, plus food, allergy and medical condition
interactions.

* Choose to be notified when new FDA alerts are issued
and when any new drugs become available for any of your
existing medical conditions.

* Print health and medication records, including physician
and emergency contacts, allergies and medical conditions.

* Use MedNotes to manage medications profiles for
yourself and your family.

MedNotes gives mothers the chance to create profiles for
different family members, enter the names of all
medications being taken and register to receive -- all in one
easy-to-access place -- drug safety or interaction alerts,
new drug and specific condition news that is released by
the FDA or drug makers. Moms can also print portable
personal health and medication histories, including
physician and emergency contact information.

Feedback from early users recognizes MedNotes as a
valuable aid to their everyday health management, and in
some cases as a potentially life-saving information source.
One consumer shared his printed MedNotes medication
profile with paramedics in the ambulance and credits
MedNotes with saving critical time and, potentially, his life,
on the way to the hospital.

profiles or for more information, please visit:

Dear Friends and Neighbors,



We're proud to be part of the automotive company that's driving a brighter
future. Not only for our community but for our county at large.


We are proud to provide good-paying jobs and benefits to so many people
right here in our area.


We are proud and grateful t'o sell and service the full line of Ford cars, trucks.
SUVs and crossovers. These are some of the finest vehicles on the road today.
And today, the future is brighter than ever.


This spring, for example, we'll debut the all-new 2010 41 mpg Ford Fusion Hybrid*
in our showroom. It will be the most fuel-efficient midsize sedan* out there. With

eight more miles per gallon in the city than Toyota Camry Hybrid.

We're proud that the 2009 Ford Escape Hybrid is the most fuel-efficient SUV
on the planet." And that Ford offers 15 car, truck and SUV choices that get

25 mpg or better?


We're proud to say that no other car company has earned more IIHS Top Safety
Pick and NHTSA 5-Star ratings

We're proud to offer the new Built Ford Tough '09 F-150.

It's smarter, more productive and tougher than ever. With best-in-classW towing
and payload. More reasons why F-Series pickups are America's best-selling
trucks for 32 straight years.


And, just around the corner, the new 2010 Mustang. Designed by enthusiasts
for enthusiasts. It will be here this spring.


Today, there is new momentum at Ford. We invite you to drive with us into the
future. Drive green. Drive safe. Drive smart. Drive quality you can believe In.
For more information, visit thefordstory.com.


We hope to see you soon. And we hope to see you drive one.


Sincerely,






General Manager
