The Advent Christian Village at ,
Dowling Park has been spared major
damage from recent flooding, it appears.


The Suwannee River, expected to peak
at more than 58 feet at Dowling Park,
crested at 55 feet Sunday, according to
the Suwannee River Water Management
District. The water came close to enter-
ing some homes but no serious damage -


was reported.
That's not the case for some Dowling
Park homes outside the Village, howev-
er. Suwannee County Sheriff/Emergency
Management Director Tony Cameron
said Monday that a number of these res-


idences suffered w ater damage., Damage
assessment is now underway and a re-
port should be ready soon, he said.

No one was hurt in recent flooding in Luraville, but
at least one resident had to be rescued from rising
floodwaters, emergency officials said.
The operation took about 10 hours. Suwannee County
Sheriff/Emergency Management Director Tony
Cameron said rescue workers had difficulty getting to
the 237th Dri\e home. Water bad crossed the road in
Sto places and workers had to go in with a motorized
boat and then walk a johnboat a mile and a half to the
next body of water before reaching the residence.
"We didn't get them out until 3 a.m.," Cameron said.,
jThe home was not flooded, but Chief Deputy Ron
Col\ in, who aided in the rescue, said there was "very
Little dry ground left" on the property.

WELLBORN NEWS



Wellborn,



0my hometown


By Jinny Wilson

"Wellborn, Florida, My Hometown" is
the name Irene Jernigan McCall suggest-
ed for a homegrown local history book
printed in 1997. The core authors were
Billy Jemigan, encouraged by his son,
Warren, Charlotte Arnold, Ann Geiger,
Margaret Owens and me, Jinny Wilson.
Helpers on that original local history pro-
ject were: Justin Rowell, Pearlie Mae
Walker, Elizabeth MacMullen, Clara
Mae Jernigan, Virginia Giebeig, Naomi
Denmard, Martha Johnson, Virginia Sev-
erance, Geneva Brown, Jack and Linda.
Gaylord, Mitte Lee Stephens, Colleen
Borklund and Viola Allen. Linda Dye at
the Kornucopia notifies is that she has
just sold the last one. The old' original
"Wellborn Florida, My Hometown," a
book of precious memories, now be-
comes a collectors' item.,

ing local merchants, Cathy Willson and

Pet'copytto be found at www.wellbor- -

ard copy "Whisper" issues, hometown '
action is pictured at


wellbomwhisper.blogspot.com. Read and
see the Wellborn Community Association
Egg Hunt held last Saturday.
Joy Geiger sang in a motet last week.
. It is a polyphonic choral composition on
a sacred text without instrumental ac-
. companiment. This one was composed
eight centuries ago in France. Just the
same, it fit right in with my own prepara-
tions for this HolyWeek. Joy was one of
the two sopranos singing with two
tenors, two altos and two basses. Dr.
Jennifer Thomas directed them iii a woi-
derful evening performance at the Uni-
versity of Florida Baughman Center on
Lake Alice.
Joy graduates in May with her Masters
Degree from the College of Fine Arts
School of Music. I'm so grateful that her
parents, Maurice and Ann,Geiger, took
time out from preparing for the Orchid
Sale, now in progress at the Geiger
Greenhouses. They thought to invite tme
to ride with them last Tuesday evening.
,'The singing was as though we were in a
monastery. Heavenly! Some of the words
were from the gospel, accounts when Pe-
ter identified. "Thou art the Christ!" How
can we be anything but happy on Easter
Sunday, and on every other day as well?
Charkweesha is a pet hen in our side
yard. She will count,three weeks of set-,
ting on eggs 'as you read about it. We
might have Easter chicks; new life. by
God's decision. None of us human be-
ings can make a hen want to set. Don't'
lose your sense of awe.

Treatments for COPD
Chronic. obstructive ptlmondry disease (COPD) is a chronic,lung
condition in which lung airways are obstructed: Chronic bronchitis,
asthmatic bronchitis, and emphysema are all forms of COPD. When
the tubes and air sacs that make up the lungs become blocked, this
leads to a person's decreased ability to exhale, causing air to become
trapped in the lungs. This leads to difficulty in breathing. Long-term
smoking is major cause of COPD. Symptoms include a persistent
cough, increased mucus production, shortness of breath, and chest
tightness. As a result, respiratory infections may occur more
frequently.
While there is no cure for COPD and the damage of the condition
is irreversible, treatments are available to alleviate symptoms and
decrease the risk of complications. Persons who smoke should stop
smoking. Inhaled bronchodilators work to relax muscles
surrounding the airways, which helps to alleviate coughing and
shortness of breath. Albuterol (Proventil, Ventolin) is a short-acting
bronchodilator that is used to quickly relieve shortness of breath.
Serevent (Salmeterol) is a long-acting bronchodilator that should be
used on a regular basis and should not be used in an emergency
situation. Fluticasone (Flovent) is an inhaled corticosteroid, which
works to reduce airway inflammation and improve breathing. 57a32-F

OPINION

One way to


make the


Tonight S
There is an occurrencethat I
must comment on. And I've tried
several ways to come up with a
clever way to start today's column
about some tendencies of the hu-
man condition by applying
metaphor, analogy, etc., etc. But in-
this instance it all boils down to a
simple phrase, "it's just plain stu-
nid"


how


A state lawmaker in Charleston, W. Va., recently
introduced a bill to make it illegal to sell Barbie
Dolls.,
His reasoning is that Barbie and similar other
dolls promote or influence girls to place an undue
importance on physical beauty to the detriment of
their intellectual and emotional development.
It would take a complete moron on steroids to
think that such a law could pass a constitutional lit-
mus test.
State Rep. Jeff Eldridge said the dolls have en-
couraged girls to:value their personal appearance
more than their education and intelligence. Of
course there is no research data to back this up.
Now he did make one statement that I agree with.
He said kids need to know that "inner beauty" is
just as important as "outer beauty." He could have
saved himself arid the state of West Virginia some
. embarrassment if he had just made that observation
and let it go. He probably would have drawn some
applause as opposed to making the monologue of
The Tonight Show.
Little girls have played with dolls for centuries'.
And yes, most of them depict physically beautiful
people. At a time when the latest studies show that
one out of five 4-year-olds is termed obese, one
might alsoargue that a trim, fit doll might inspire
one to seek to be trim and fit. Obviously that hasn't
worked either, if the statistics are correct.
Now let's don't let Barbie and little girls bear the
brunt of this issue. '
Little boys have played with GI Joes and other
action figures for many, many years as well. So
would a Superman figure influence a kid to fly off
Ithe,windmill with a towel around his neck? Would a
Rambo figure make the kid think that one man
could actually take on dn entire platoon of enemy -
that their bullets never hit and Rambo's never miss.
,By the lawmaker's rational, that would encourage a
false sense, of security, wouldn't it?
I have to wonder if the.State of West Virginia. is
in such great shape that a lawmaker sees Barbie
dolls as a prevailing issue. I doubt that.
Now I really don't care for beauty pageants. And I
embrace that little bit of sound logic that the law-
maker uttered in this matter that inner beauty is
just as (or more) important than outward beauty.
But you can't measure inner beauty in a two-hour
event from among people you don't even really '
know. Still, I don't think beauty pageants should be
made illegal.
Now as I said, I don't think there's any real dan-
ger of such a bill being passed. If West Virginia is ,
like most states right now, they have severe issues
gnawing on their hip pockets with a great threat of
them reaching their Fruit of the Looms any day.
now. The only real danger I see is that our federal
government might fund a study to see if this law-
maker's claims have merit.

Sometimes the signs of child abuse can't be seen by the outside world, but the scars caused by verbal
abuse can linger inside for a lifetime. Verbal abuse can make a child feel unloved, unwanted, insecure and
unworthy, often leading to behavioral problems, depression and anxiety. The next time you're about to lose
your temper, stop, take a deep breath and think about what is really upsetting you. Before you speak,
consider how the words you're about to say will sound to your child.

If you see or suspect abuse or neglect,
call 8009622873 or w focem t.

Tuesday the river was ex-
pected to peak at 34 feet

Suwannee River Water
Management District. Se-
rious: flooding has already
occurred, however, and
more isexpected.
Cameron said a large -
number of people have al-
ready evacuated, but most-
ly due to inaccessible
roads.
Tow n Council President
Shirley Clark said resi-
dents should be aware the
area is still dangerous and
waters are still high with
some roads under water.
"The main thing is for
everyone to pay attention
and be cautious," Clark
said Tuesday. "Help one
another if they need it and
don't take this thing for
granted."
Clark believes some res-
idents have become com-
placent and said those in
affected areas should evac-
uate before becoming
trapped.
i"Don't wait until the last
minute," said Clark.
The flood has boosted
business at one local

Cameron said the Or-

Volusia sees wild tires, Easter Bunny,

and plenty of action Saturday night


Barberville, FL The straw was
flying at Volusia Speedway Park as
the kids had a ball hunting Easter,
eggs and candy. The Easter Bunny
made a special appearance on the eve
of his busiest work day to help the,
Rids with Easier fun. Plastic eggs and,
iqandy were a hit as the kids worked
their way thru the straw for hidden
goodies. None were disappointed and
,a few even won special prizes hidden
in the plastic eggs.
- After the Easter egg hunt, it was
time for the dust to fly as the twenty
fpur car Sportsman field took to the
track. Three heats were in order with
Todd Ponce, Garret Stewart, and
Drew Smith taking the heat wins.
Points leader Shaun Daugharty had
the pole for the 20 lap feature and
quickly took the point over Drew


Smith, Todd Ponce, Garret Stewart
and Steve Shead. But by lap 2, Smith'
passed Daugharty and took over the
lead followed by Ponce, Daugharty,
Stewart and Shead.
The caution came out on lap four
for Trevor Gamble and Marc Kinley
who got together under the flagstand.
Both were towed in as Alan Peacock
suffered nose damage during the inci-
dent and Dan Lane Sr. was also in-
volved. Cars were towed in and the
track was cleared for the restart.
Smith on the outside, Ponce on the
inside as the green flag waved but
just as fast as the green was shown,
.the yellow came out for a bad start.
Once again, Smith on the inside,
Ponce on the outside as Smith took
the point over Ponce, Shead, Stewart
and Shane Nichols. One lap later,


Nichols spins in turn two with every-
one avoiding him but Matt
McGillivray who hits.the stopped car.
Nichols goes into the pits for some
crew attention as McGillivray is
towed into the pits, done for the
night.
Restart lap 5 qnce again has a bad
start with a second restart in order.
On the second restart, Smith takes
the point over Ponce, Shead, Stewart
and Aaron Barsness. Suddenly, Alan
Peacock is off the pace and takes his
ill running machine to the pits. Stew-
art begins to look on Shead for third
but Shead closes the door. On lap 11,
while running fifth, Barsness spins
on the frontstretch bringing out the
caution. Barsness rejoins the field in

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
The Masters lived up to its
billing this past weekend. The )
final three were not who we
were expecting, but nonetheless
it proved exciting. Tiger and
Phil made great charges but fell short. You still
have to second-guess Mickelson's choice of
clubs on the par 3. Tiger hits a full 8 iron and
you're punching a 9 iron? Kenny Perry, Chad
Campbell and Angel Cabrera added new
meaning to Arthur Godfrey's "I don't want her
you can have her, she's to fat for me...." .ach
player had his moment of nerves but the
Argentine-born Cabrera won the Masters.
It should be interesting to see what dish he
orders for next year's annual dinner. Sandy
Lyle was the oldest player to make the cut this
year at 51. If Kenny Perry had ,yon, he would
have been the oldest player at 48 to ever win.
There are three majors and the TPC to'go as
golf now really begins.
Baseball is off to a great start. The Angels
and Red Sox had a fight Sunday. The
Cleveland Indians took five games to get a
win. Evan Longoria has five homeruns already
and the KC Royals beat the Yankees. It is a
very long season and along the way there will
be records set and broken every other month.
When it comes to record keeping and statistics
baseball tops them all. This was the first time
ever two players on the same team homered
from both sides of the plate in an opening day
game. Of course it was also the first time any
player homered from both sides of the plate in
an opening game. This kind of stuff is endless
in baseball. Ken Griffey's next homerun will
be hi' 400th as a Mariner. Gary Sheffield's
' next will be his 500th.
Byron Leftwich is going for the trifecta. He
has quarterbacked the Jags and now is in the
Bucs camp, just has the Dolphins left to
complete the trifecta. Can college football

FWC removes junked, abandoned

vessels from state's waters


"This one will cost $20,000 to r
move," Lt. David Dipre, state
derelict vessel coordinator for the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) estimate
ed. "Maybe more."
Dipre scanned the large, half-
sunken, fishing boat, lying halfway
on its side in a small inlet of the Si
Marks River in Franklin County.
He and Officer John Allen attache
a bright orange notice to the ves-'
sel's rotting cabin. '
Removing junked-out, abandon
boats is a costly but necessary en-
deavor the FWC has undertaken.
With an estimated 1,500 of these
boats, known as "derelict vessels,"
in the state's, waters, they are a big
problem. They create safety and
navigational hazards and dump pol
lutants into the water. For the 2008
09 fiscal year, legislators took ac-
tion, granting $1.55 million to the
FWC to remove derelict vessels.
Dipre travels across, the state,
evaluating the derelict vessel situa
tion
on coastlines and inland water
'bodies. He trains other FWC offi-

derelict vessels. Once they identify

Dale Murray, Nick Kirkus, Randy
Hecker, Zach Permanin and Larry
Burkins. Hecker is unable to return
as Murray and Kirkus quickly pit fc
crew attention. And this is only lap
three. Murray and Kirkus rejoin the
field in the rear as Jimmy Carter
takes the point on the restart.

But it is a short start as the caution
comes out again on lap four for Rick
-Scott who has spun on the
frbntstretch and hit the inside retain-
ing wall. Scott is fine and the race
V goes back green as nephew Jamie
Carter is on the inside and uncle
Jimmy Carter is on' the outside.
This time it is Jamie Carter who
vi grabs the point over uncle Jimmy
Carter, Davis, Greene and Kent
Corbin. Kirkus, who was sent to the
rear for a caution, is quickly making
w his way back up as he runs seventh.
But'just as it is getting really inter-
esting, the caution comes out again
on lap, seven for Zach Permann who
has hit the retaining wall in turns
three and four. Restart lap eight sees
Jamie Carter once again on the point
followed by Jimmy Carter, Davis,
Greene and Corbin. Corbin puts the
I heat on Greene and takes over fourth
ar' as Greene settles into fifth.
d Suddenly, the leader has disap-
t peared and is off the track with a
broken machine giving the lead back
to his uncle Jimmy Carter followed
s by Davis, Corbin, Greene and Cody
Blair.
at Blair, who is running his second
n- dirt modified race and had never
- raced on dirt before in his life, has
taken to dirt like a duck takes to wa-
ter. Blair is well known in the as-
phalt world for his talent behind the
te wheel of a Mini Stock and Pro Truck
. but his car owner traded Charlie
f Macnichol a truck for one of his dirt
modified.
Blair jumped behind the wheel for
the first time April 4 and almost won
his heat race tonight. According to
d Blair's car owner, they have not
touched the car at all since getting it
s from Macnichol and have no idea of
how to set up a dirt car but hope to
rt buy new shocks for it soon.
Lap 12 sees Greene put the heat on
Corbin, who normally drives a Late
.d Model, and takes over third. Greene,
who will have major back surgery in
ht two weeks, has done very well since
returning on April 4 to Volusia in his
e modified. Zach Permann brings out
the caution on lap 13 as he spins off
turn two,,
With the race half way cimflef&d,
itis a single file restart as Carter
leads the way over Davis, Greene,
r Corbin and Blair. Davis really puts
the heat on and is flying around the
speedway but cannot pass Carter.
Jimmy Carter holds on and takes the
checkered for his first feature win of
the season followed by Jason Davis,
la Tiny Greene, Kent Corbin and Cody
Blair.
S Up next are the 4 Cyl Challengers
k with a small field for them of sixteen
cars. Mark Comitale has the pole for,
the 15 lap feature but it is RJ Glaser
who takes the point on the green fol-
lowed by Comitale, Danny Lunn,
e Tony Laporta and Jamie Anderson.
Laporta puts the heat on and takes
over second just as Anderson brings
out the caution on lap two for a spin
in turns three and four.
te Lap three sees the green but it is
very short as Comitale spins in turn
one and goes in for the night. Lapor-
i's ta on the' inside, Glaser on the out-
side for the restart as Laporta quick-
ly takes the point over Glaser, Lunn,
Espy and Casey Feaster. Lunn puts
the heat on Glaser and takes over
>r second as Glaser slides to third.
David Ladrie does a great job of sav-
ing his machine as he gets very, very
squirelly on the frontstretch but*
catches it and holds on to his ride.

Espy puts the heat on Glaser for

to do with it and holds on to his po-
sition. The caution comes out briefly
on lap eight for a spin in turn two.
Single file restart sees Laporta lead
the way over Lunn, Glaser, Espy and
Feaster. Gilford Williams takes a

checkered for yet another win fol-
lowed by Danny Lunn, Gilbert Espy,

waved as Oldaker had the point for a
second but it was points leader
Grady Christian who got the main
spot followed by Kevin Durden,
Ocala's winner on Friday night, Phil
Brown, Charlie Macnichol and
Oldaker.
The caution comes out on lap three
for D.J. Nobles who spun in turn

three, Christian spins in turn two
bringing out the yellow. Christian
must now.rejoin the field in the rear,
for the restart as Durden takes the in-

outside. Durden quickly takes the
point over Bubba Christian, Macni-
chol, Brown and Steve Mooers.
Mooers and Brown go side-by-side
for fourth as Mooers wins the raqe
and.Brown settles into fifth.
By lap five, Bubba Christian has
the point as Durden goes to second
followed by Macnichol, Mooers and
Oldaker. Coming up fast and furious
is Grady Christian who is now run-
ning seventh. Macnichol challenges
Durden in lap 12,and takes over
third as Christian is coming.
Macnichol takes 6er fhist as Bub-
ba Christian brings out the caution
on lap 13 as he spins on his own
down the frontstretch. Christian is
fine but must go to the rear for the
single file restart. Macnichol takes
the point on the green followed by
Durden, Mooers and Oldaker who
has his hands full of Grady Christian
who wants fourth.
Christian wins the battle and takes
over fourth as he looks on Mooers
for third. Christian makes no bones
about it and it heading for the front
as he passes Durden on lap 15 for
second. It is "watch outer' Charlie
Macnichol as Christian barrels by
him and resumes the point. Pat ,

Wildfire


Awareness


Week is


April 12-18

TALLAHASSEE Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
announced that April 12 18 is Wildfire Awareness
Week. The second week of April is designated as
Wildfire Awareness Week in recognition of Flofi-
da's devastating 1998 wildfire season, when more
than half a million acres burned and 337 homes
and other structures were damaged or destroyed by
wildfires statewide.
"The spring months are generally the most active
months of Florida's year round wildfire season,'
Bronson said. "We have been fortunate'in the
amount of rainfall we have received in the Florida
panhandle; however the peninsula part of the state
is still very dry. There is a very good chance that
we will see an increase in wildfire activity in cen-
tral and south Florida over the coming weeks and
months."
The Division of Forestry responds to an in-
creased number of escaped yard waste fires thi
time of year. Bronson is urging residents to use .
caution when burning yard waste and to follow the
guidelines set by the Division of Forestry:
Burning yard waste does not require an autho-
rization from the Division of Forestry; but you,
should check with your local city, county or -,
Forestry officials to see if there are any restrictions
in your area.
Your fire must be contained to an 8 foot diame-
ter pile or non-combustible barrel and must be at'
least 25 feet from forests, 25 feet from your house,
50 feet from a'paved public road and 150 feet from
other occupied buildings.
Don't bum on windy days or when the humidi-
ty is below 30 percent.
Never leave a fire unattended, and make sure it
is out before you leave.
Keep a shovel and water hose handy. :
If your fire escapes, you may be held liable for
suppression costs and damage to the property of
others.

Since January 1, 1,570 wildfires have burned 9.
43,565 acres in Florida, more than twice last year's
number of fires and acres burned at this point bofi
the year in 2008. Most of these fires were caused
by human carelessness.
"Floridians should take precautions to help pr-.
vent wildfires and report all suspicious fires to 911
or their local Division of Forestry office. Never.it
Svlevea wampg'teiatnattended, dispose. of cigatettdW
properly, and make sure all vehicles and equipment
have properly working spark arresters," Bronsot *.
said.
Contact your local Division of Forestry field of-
fice for more information 'on fire prevention tips "
and burning rules and regulations, or visit the Di-
vision of Forestry's Website at http://www.fl-
dof.com.



Gulf red snapper season

on hold until June 1
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) reminds anglers that the recre-
ational harvest season for red snapper in Gulf of
Mexico waters has changed. The open season now
takes place from June 1 through Sept. 30.
Previously, the recreational-red snapper harvest
season opened on April 15 in Gulf state waters, ,
and the season in Gulf federal waters opened onf
April 21. Now, the recreational harvest season for
red snapper in all Gulf waters off Florida does riot
open until June 1. '
Researchers consider Gulf red snapper to be ,
overfished (in the past) and undergoing more oveY-
fishing now. A shorter fishing season will reduce'
the harvest of Gulf red snapper and help rebuild '
Sthe fishery's population.
More information regarding the management of
Gulf red snapper is available at '
MyFWC.com/RULESANDREGS/SaltwaterReg-
ulations_RedSnapperIndex.htm.

Fitness Tips foi

: Few lifestyle changes have become more widely accepted and
Ssticessful than the commitment many people have made to physical
, fitness. Over the last 20 years, more arid more people have joined
gyms in an effort to improve their quality of life.
{One particular group that has increasingly emphasized this
c' t omitment to physical fitness is Baby Boomers. As advancements in
medicine have helped to increase life expectancy and quality of life,
-many Boomers have simultaneously grown more health-conscious in
Pa. effort to make their approaching golden years more enjoyable and
healthy. However, Boomers would be wise to consider the following
fittess tips to ensure they get the most out of their exercise regimens.
S* Work with your physician: Even if you feel great, it's wise to work
with your physician when starting or altering an existing exercise
r eimen. Discuss how you feel after a workout, including any aches
S1 pains that might result. In addition, write down exactly what your
.fen is and share this with your physician. That way, if you do
.?e'any aches and pains, the doctor can most likely get at the root of
,fiose problems arid help you alter your program td eliminate or
minimize these negative side effects.
Another valuable result of sharing your routine with your physician
-is that a doctor familiar with your medical history can help ensure
you're choosing routines that aren't going to inflame any preexisting
conditions.
'r, M -^.. -w-77lMf


r Baby Boomers

Get an exercise buddy: Whether it's with a friend or spouse,
exercising with a buddy is a great way to ensure you'll stick to your
program. Exercising alone can become very boring, leading to a lower
level of commitment than many people aspire to at the onset.
For retired Boomers, an exercise buddy can also be a great means to
socializing. Many retirees can begin to feel isolated at the onset of
retirement, as they no longer go to the office each day and stick to their
once regular routine. An exercise buddy can encourage socializing,
which in turn can improve overall quality of life.
Don't be afraid to sweat: Boomers should still aspire to sweat a
little during their workouts. While making out on the bench press .
should no longer be a goal, Baby Boomers should keep in mind that a
moderate workout where they sweat a little is beneficial. However, if
an exercise regimen routinely leaves you with shortness of breath or a
noticeably elevated heartbeat, consult your physician and be prepared
to scale back your workout.
Make it fun: Exercise regimens that are dull are far less likely to be
adbered to than workouts that you enjoy. Many gyms offer classes such
as pilates that are open to members. Many times, classes are age-
specific, meaning they're tailored to certain age groups. For Baby
Boomers, these classes are ideal, as they're not going to push you to
your limits but still provide valuable exercise. Also, these classes can
be a great way to meet people.
IV ".5, ST1 :,- '. ^ *' .% : ,* *


, rolling in an exercise class such as yoga at the local gym is one way for Baby Boomers to get fit and meet new people at the same time.
