EXTENSION UPDATE

Credit card rules are about to change


1 '










By Cathy Rogers, Family
and Consumer Sciences
Agent UF/IFAS Suwannee
County Extension

Recently Congress vot-
ed-in some changes to
credit card regulations in
, response to consumer's
complaints about, ques-
tionable practices by
credit card companies.
These new rules are ex-
pected to go into effect in
July of 2010. Some of
them however will go
into effect sooner. Other
new regulations aimed at
consumer proteqtion-with
regard to credit cards will
be proposed to legislators
within the next few
months.
, -,, The following five
changes are slated to be-
,,,, gin in Jyly 2010:
,-, Simpler statements --
To help consumers to
identify any changes,
\[: credit card statements will
..;,:,! include changes to your
.- account stated in bold or
listed separately. Also, the
S, time of day that your
;,i statement is due will be
included.


Increasing Interest
Rates on Existing Bal-
ances -- Unless a payment
is 30 days late, credit card
I companies can no longer
raise interest rates on ex-
isting balances. Even
though, for a variety of
reasons, your interest rate
may increase, the new
rate may only be applied
to future purchases.
Applying Payments --
In the past credit card
companies have applied
payments to balances
linked to lower rates such
as balance transfers be-
fore applying to purchas-
es with higher rates. In
the future they will be re-
quired to apply payments
to the highest-rate bal-
ances first. The effect of
this will be reduced inter-
est; penalties, and fees to
the consumer.
Universal defaults --
This feature will be. elimi-
nated. Universal default
meant that if you were
late or missed a payment
on one account, other un-
related accounts could
raise your interest rate
and related fees. After
July 2010 you will no
longer be penalized by
many accounts for a
blemish on one account.
Double-cycle billing -
No longer will credit
card companies be al-
lowed to base the finance
charge on the average of
the two most recent
billing cycles. This proce-
dure resulted in higher in-
terest charged to con-
sumers who pay off, or
pay a large proportion of


the balance of their ac-
count.
These changes will pro-
tect the rights of con-
sumers but the question
of how credit card compa-
nies will make up for
their losses in revenue
still remains to be seen.
Already, in order to cut
losses, they are beginning
to lower credit limits for
current customers and are
being more selective in
granting credit to new
customers.
According to
Bankrate.com reporter,
Leslie McFadden, con-
sumers would be wise to
pay down debt and add to
their emergency fund in
order to avoid a cut in
credit score should the
credit card company low-
er their credit limit. A
high balance will look
even higher on a card if
the limit is reduced. Dar-
age of this kind to your
credit score could cause a
domino effect where other'
companies respond by
also lowering your limit.
Another way that credit
card companies are ex- ,
pected to make up for
possible. losses is to con-
vert accounts from fixed
rates to variable rates.
The flexibility of variable
rates makes them more
profitable. That means
that the consumer will
end up paying more.
An additional related
consequence of the tight-
ening of credit, whether
due to the upcoming
changes in credit card
regulations or the current

Q, Do thermostats ever
need maintenance?
A Thermostats rarely fail outright, they
can degrade over time as
Mechanical parts stick or lose their
calibration. Older units will send faulty signals
if they've been knocked out of level or have
dirty switches. Modern electronic thermostats,
sealed at the factory to keep out dust and
grime, rarely need adjusting. However,
whether your thermostat is oldor young, the
hole where the thermostat, wire comes
through the wall needs to be caulked, or a
draft could trick it into thinking the room is
warmer or colder than itreally is. A.

Birth Announcement

Mason Slade Warner
Cayden Warner is proud to announce the arrival of his
baby brother, Mason. Mason Slade Warner was born Sat-
urday, Feb. 14, 2009. He weighed 6 pounds, 11 ounces
and was 20 inches in length.


Thank You
Dear Community and friends:
With heartfelt sincerity,. we compliment the wonderful
and compassionate community that our brother, Cliff,
thrived in for 42 years. The enjoyment Cliff "Bull" Bass
experienced while living in this community is beyond any-
thing 'we could have ever hoped 'for him.
In this community, he made many friends and even
more casual acquaintances. He loved his home and he
loved his community and friends. Why he so loved his
community became more obvious to us during his funeral,
indeed, a celebration of his life.
Cliff considered you as "friend," "good man," or "good
woman." Regularly, Cliff would give us a report of who be
had seen and/or spoken with during the day.'Sometimes,
we would see you while we were together with him and,
afterward, he would tell us about a time he had spoken
with you, or a time he had been with you. Most of the time,
we could interpret his reports accurately. We cherish every
story he shared.
Many of you have told us that you are better people for
having known Cliff. We know we are better people having
had him as our brother. May the peace of the Lord be with
you all.

MAYOR'S
CORNER


BY SONi


NY NOBLES


Last week, Christians throughout
the world celebrated the resurrection
rof Jesus Christ. Easier is one of the
'holiest days for believers. It is not
,only a time for celebration but a time
for families to come together. I hope
'everyone had a happy and spiritual
Easter season.
As you may or may not know, there
'is a push to privatize the new Suwan-
nee Correctional Institution. This ini-
tiative, if approved, will jeopardize'
many of the anticipated jobs and other
related business activities that the
prison will create for our area. This.
move is not in, the best interest of eco-
nomic development for our communi-
ty. I have been busy opposing this ac-
tion. I have mailed over fifty letters
and sent e-mails to members of the
House and Senate. I visited members
of our legislative delegation and other
legislators while in Tallahassee as a
member of the lobbying team for the
Suwannee River League of Cities. I
have envisioned the prison as being
tremendous economic boost to our
North Central Florida Region. I don't
want that messed up. The city has
spent too much time and effort making
this project work)
I have been privileged to be part of
two ceremonies showcasing the best
of the best among our young people. I
look at some of our youth today and
wonder what in the world is going to
happen to our countryin the future. I
know that each generation had these
feelings about their young people. I
feel comforted when I see the good
things that the majority of our kids are
accomplishing. Approximately thirty-
five young people were recognized
during the Youth Advocacy Partner-

Rant Rave


Want to vent? Our

hotline is open 24/7.
Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak your mind! How? By
calling the Suwannee Democrat Rant and Rave hotline. The hot-
line never closes and is your way to let it out. You can let every-
one know how you feel -- as long as you express yourself in a re-
spectful way.
Note: In written entries to Rant and Rave, errors in spelling,
grammar or punctuation are those of the authors.
* With the economy so bad these days, why can't Live Oak get
a Cracker Barrel or Bob Evans restaurant here? I've never driven
by a Cracker Barrel and seen an empty parking lot. Live Oak
needs the business!
To the person who is fed up with the bass music. I called the
police many times about the bass music on Friday and Saturday
night. They would issue tickets sometimes. The noise ordinance
is an untapped source for county funds if LOPD would just up
hold the ordinance. These tickets don't accumulate points on the
license of the offender. Why don't they ticket them? Rant Over!
to all those having 'the power:' Please require boat docks on,
public waters to have the associated 911 address posted on it
such that it is visible from 50 feet away.
Reading this weeks paper, I cannot understand why anyone
would build on property that has a history of flooding and now
expect us the taxpayer to bail them out. NO, research your prop-
erty prior to buying it: My 6 year old can look up flood zones on
a computer and a map. Maybe its like the rest of tle county and
their employees, outsiders who don't know any thing about this
county and its history. Yes ask your county commissioner who
they have (hired) placed into positions of management and lead-
ership and where they came from. Might just surprise you, and in-
fluence your vote next time.
I would like to extend a warm thank you to our local politi-
cians both city and county'who came out in support of the Tea
Party just to see what their constituents, the people that pay their
salaries, felt about big government. And to those spineless cow-
ards whose only interest is getting reelected, well your days are
numbered.
I think it's a great idea for the county commissioners to be lim-


ited to two-year terms. They've been in too' long already. They
don't listen to the people, they do exactly what they want instead
of what the people of Suwannee County want.
What's the deal with the railroad tracks at 90 and ,Mussey?
They are so bad you can't hardly cross them, they are bad, they
need to be checked into.
I want to thank the people of Suwannee River Park Estates for
being so helpful when the river flooded. They helped moved per-
sonal items or stored them for people and even offered a place to
stay. The county sheriff, fire department and Florida Wildlife
Commission all came by to keep everyone informed of the rivers
rising. The Division of Forestry helped me free my stuck truck. I
was out of my home for 10 days. FEMA came by when the wa-
ters started to recede. There are over 60 miles of river in Suwan-
nee County and I think everyone did a fabulous job. .
Reference to the 'school board saving money: A good thought
is for the board members to be cut in half, their salary. This is
their second income for a half-time job. The superintendent
salaries could be cut. in half also. He's working on his third re-
tirement. Many teachers are single parents with children and this
is the only family income. In the superintendent's office, how
many secretaries are really needed? It looks like there's two or
three secretaries to each administrator. Like it was said, it needs
to start at the top. Please don't lay off any teachers.,
Our superintendent is firing band directors, football coaches
and athletic directors. Why isn't he firing people, that home
school their children that work in the school district? They don't
believe in the school system in Suwannee County therefore why
should they work in Suwannee County?
Editor's note: Folks, for months we've been asking you to keep
submissions to this column to under 45 seconds (that's about 150
words). We want everybody'to have a chance to be heard.,h we're
therefore discarding submissions that are overly long. We want
you to rant (or rave), but not to rant on and on and on. Please
keep it short and .to the point. If 45 seconds isn't enough time,
write a Letter to the Editor. (Guidelines for:letters appear on
Page .6A.)
Callers to 208-8314 may express their thoughts, good or bad,
24/7 about community issues and politics, but not about private
individuals or businesses..If you prefer, you may e-mail your
comments to nf.editorial@gaflnews.com. You don't have to give
your name, and please, take no more than 30-45 secorunds for your
comments. Let us know what's bugging you.

Since Suwannee is not a
chartered' county, voters
can't institute term limits
here, County Attorney Hal
Airth told a local resident at
last night's county commis-
sion meeting.
"Suwannee County is a
non-charter county," said
Airth. "We are not allowed
to institute term limits for
county (commissioners)."
Since .there is no charter,
a state .-statute determines
the matter. No state law sets
term limits for county com-.
missioners in Florida.

limits on county', commis-

Suwannee County resident,
told board members he
wanted term limits for all
elected county officials, not
just commissioners.
' "I was trying to limit all
terms in county govern-
ment," said Knapp. "I think
if elected officials would
think of' their job as some-
thing temporary they would
do their jobs better and
honestly."
Airth told Knapp he
should speak with state
Sen. Charles Dean and
Rep. Debbie Boyd for fur-
ther guidance.

City backtracks on plan to open public works co


By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com

It appears the city will
keep OMI on board for
another year. OMI is the
private firm that has pro-
vided public works opera-
tions-for the city for the
last three years.
In a workshop on Tues-
day, three city council
members -- Ed Rewis,
Mark Stewart and Ken
Duce -- said they wanted
to wait until next year to
put the city's public works
contract out for bids.
Workshop discussions are,
informal and non-binding.
The council will vote on
the matter April 27 at 5
p.m. at city hall.
The council voted 4-1
at its April 14 meeting to
invite other firms to bid
on the contract. Rewis
was the dissenting vote.
At issue was whether
the city could save money
with another company
running public works or
by the city taking the de-
partment back'over. City
Administrator Bob Farley
suggested at the workshop


that the council wait until
after the budgeting season
to let out for bids. He said
the city would be pushed
for time to advertise for
bids and make a decision
by June 2, the date the
city must notify OMI if
they intend not to renew
the contract.
"There's a lot of work
that needs to be done and
at a bad time," Farley
said, adding that staff will
be working on the budget
soon.
Council President John
Hale was skeptical.
"It's always the time'
frame; and in my opinion,
it wouldn't matter when
we started, it's never go-
ing to be an appropriate
time," Hale said.
"I'm not trying to back
off from us doing.bids,
because we need.to, but.
we don't need to do
something in such a quick
fashion that we will let
something slide that will
cost us more money down
the road," Stewart said.
"We could be out of of-
fice by that time," Hale
said.

Farley said he was also
concerned over-possible
severance costs for OMI
employees, he said those
.costs might be passed
onto the city.
David Hester, an OMI
operations supervisor
who previously worked
under the city, was con-
cerned about employees'
retirements. OMI employ-
ees' pensions won't be un-
til next year.
"I'feel like somebody
ain't caring about (OMI
workers) ... it's not al-
ways about the almighty
dollar," Hester said. "If
you go ahead and (bid
out) now, you done beat
the people out of another
retirement."
"We're looking at sav-
ing money for our tax-
payers," Councilman
Bennie Thomas respond-
ed.
"If you remember, at
the last meeting I brought
up the retirement system
for the employees,"
Rewis' said. "It's still a
concern of mine, this is
something we're going to
have to iron out."
Hester was also con-
cerned about the city tak-
ing over the public works
department again. He said
the city ran the depart-
ment poorly.
"Some of the supervi-
sors came to work drink-
ing or as high as a kite;,"
.Hester said. "You had no

the legislative cuts will go
further.
"It probably will go
quite a lot deeper than
that,"- said Baker. If so,
"we go back to the draw-
ing board and will have to
address every area again
to see what will have to be
done."'
Seven months into the
budget year, Baker said it
is tough to know where to
start making, cuts.
"The farther you go into
the year, the more impact-
ed it will be," said Baker.
In addition to budget
cuts, Baker said his office
has seen a decline in cus-
tomers and thus a decline
in revenue generated by
recording and document
fees, for example. .
To make up for the loss,
Baker said he and his staff
are taking one day off
without pay every two
weeks until further notice.
Spending has basically
stopped.
"We have cut back on


ce



yet

ntracts to bids
be the same way again."
"You keep talking
about it going back to the
way it was," Rewis said.
"I'm dead set against
good old boy politics andl
that's all that will do." ,
Mayor Sonny Nobles
agreed with Hester. He
said when the city ran the
department there were
numerous personnel probi
lems that had to be dealt
with. ' .
"We don't have that
now," Nobles said.
He also praised OMI
workers for their perfor-
mance.
-"The employees are
more productive than
ever and equipment is
better, maintained than
ever," Nobles said.
Hale and Thomas said
they were both dissatis- .
fied with the company's
performance because
workers had not complet-
ed work they requested.
"It's hard to get any-
thing done in your dis- -
trict," Thomas said.
"I know one thing, it's
the best thing for the \
money being spent," Hes
ter said of OMI's ser% ice,
to'the city.
Once the council de-
cides to advertise for bid!
and Ibey are received,
they will decide whether
to continue outsourcing J
the department or to opere
ate it in-house.

A hiring freeze has also
been placed on the office, s
Baker said. He said as po-1
sitions become vacant the.

"So far four positions
have been vacated and
will not be filled," said
Baker.
Baker said although I
most revenues are down, '
those for foreclosures are
up. '
According to court
records, 113 foreclosure
cases have been filed withd
the clerk's office since

Baker, who took office in

Electrical wires lay on and

Linton, 37, of Live Oak,

when she suffered a shock
from static electricity that
had gathered near the door.
Steven Burns Sapp, her

part of a utility pole that
was burning.
Linton's vehicle also be-

ers arrived at the scene
they found Linton trapped
in the car calling for help.
Though there were other
emergency workers on the
scene, Faller and Hillengas
took a flashlight and
walked. carefully around
electric lines to get to the
victim.

struct Linton to jump from
her car without touching it


or the electrical lines lying
on the ground.
"She would have burned
or gotten electrocuted,"
Conner said.
Linton was taken to
Shands Lake Shore in
Lake City with minor in-
juries. Sapp, 43, was pro-
nounced dead at the scene.
Faller was recognized at
,the city council meeting
Aprii 14 for his actions.
"In my eyes he is truly a,
hero, by anyone's stan-
dards," said Police Chief
Buddy Williams, as he
pinned a medal on Faller's
shirt. City council mem-
bers gave Faller a standing
ovation.
"Officer Faller put him-
self in peril to save a per-
son's life," said Mayor
Sonny Nobles, while he
presented Faller a commu-
nity service award.
Linton attended the
county commission meet-
ing on April 21 to thank
Hillengas personally.
"It was a hard night for
all of us," Linton said,
wiping away her tears.
"I know everybody went
above and beyond their
duties. I want to thank you
so much," Linton said as
she embraced Hillengas.
"It's really neat to see
what rescue workers and
officers do to save some-
one's life and they don't
think twice about it," said.
Conner.

Karen said the two old-

"They would say no that

Karen tries hard to keep
her kids from dwelling on

She admits she has trouble
following that advice her-
self, however.
"I can't get them to fa-
miliar ground, their famil-
iar things," she says.
A couple of days before'
leaving her home, Karen
received a flier urging area
residents to evacuate.
"I went to local stores
and talked with local peo-
ple about it and asked if
this is that serious," said'
Karen, who moved here
just two years ago.

"He said 'You are going
to get trapped.' That was
the keyword," said Karen.
"I started thinking about it
that day." But she still had-
n't decided to leave.
That was when Fowler
went to Suwannee County
Sheriff/Emergency Man-
agement Director Tony
Cameron, to see if he
could talk her into leaving.
She said by the time
Cameron arrived she was
already packing whatever
she could.
"I'm just very thankful
that she decided to leave,"
said Cameron. "She need-
ed to get out of there."
It's a good thing she did.
Just hours after she evacu-
ated, rising waters had cut
her home off from the out-
side world.
Karen said she and her
kids loaded up the Grand
Marquis, and drove to Jack-
sonville Beach to spend
the day, She only had
enough money for gas and
maybe one night's stay in a
motel. She didn't think the'
water would stay high as
long as it did.
They spent their days at
the beach, but their nights
in their car in the parking
lot of a Wal-Mart. Karen


said her car was loaded
down with food, blankets
and toys.
By the time she and the
kids made it back to
Suwannee County, a Red
Cross shelter had been
opened at the Coliseum.
She said she will never
forget the volunteers' care
and generosity.
"They were so great and
just awesome," said Karen.
"They would sit with me
while I cried, they would
stay up at night with me to
comfort me."
Karen said they also
held an Easter egg hunt for
her'kids. Missy Norris of
the sheriffs department
bought Karen some show-
er gel.
"Thank you is not big
enough words," Karen
said. "I just want all those
who helped me and my
kids to know that I love
them very much."
Karen said her kids were
so comfortable with the
volunteers at the shelter
that they began calling
them aunt and uncle.
Karen and her kids are
now staying in a room at
the Advent Christian Vil-
lage in Dowling Park. She
said volunteers thought
getting her close to the riv-
er again would help with
her recovery.
As for the -kids?

Ceremony this past week-
end. It was arranged by

".Scout badge. I was so im-
, ,pressed with the ceremo-

Sjob.
I visited the fire station.
last week to thank the Red
"Cross for their efforts dur-
ng this time of flooding
"' in our county. Several
years ago during the hurri-
canes, they were not real
responsive to the needs of
those in our area. Boy has
this changed. Red Cross
has really come through
during this trying time for
many. Volunteer teams


have been organized and
have been very busy min-
istering to the needs of
flooding victims through-
out our region. The city
provides Red Cross with
office space upstairs in the
Fire Station. They were
very appreciative of my
going by and thanking
them for their efforts. A
big THANK YOU goes
out to the Red Cross for
their attention.
This week was Secre-
tary and Administrative
Professionals Week. What
would we do without
them? If you forgot, you
can scurry around and do
something to recognize
them and pretend you did-
n't forget. We are recog-'
nizing our professionals
with lunch at City Hall.
We have some very good
helpers and we appreciate
them very much. A big
THANK YOU goes out to


all secretaries and adminis-

do to keep things together
and running smoothly.
It has been busy at City
Hall with all the projects
we have going. The dis-
ability and safety upgrades
at City Hall and Millenni-
um Park will begin soon.
Work has begun on the
next phase of the new sew-
er plant addition and water
reuse line that will extend
to the prison. We did some
creative financing on these
projects. In the bidding


process for these two pro-
jects, it was decided that
the city would purchase
the pipe and equipment for
the plant rather than hav-
ing the contractors do the
buying. In doing this, over
$93,000 was saved by not
having the contractor pay
the 7 percent sales tax. We
try to save every penny of
your money we can. The
drainage project in the
Sherwood Forrest area is
scheduled to begin May 4.

Engineering for the Cata-

Suwannee County received

Worst flooding in,
county history
leaves 54 homes
destroyed, 70
badly damaged
By Jo Ross
HAMILTON COUN-
TY Cleanup is slowly
beginning in the wake of
the worst flooding in
Hamilton County history.
While many have re-
turned to their homes,
more than half of those
displaced have not. Dam-
age was massive, say offi-

"Fifty-four homes are
counted as known to be
destroyed, 70 have major
damage, 10 have sus-
tained minor damage, and
75 are still inaccessible,"
according to Mike Stone,
spokesperson for the
Florida Division of Emer-
gency Management.,
"The county's actual
numbers may have
climbed since these fig-
ures were compiled, but
these represent known oc-
cupied residences as of
April 20."
More than 200 resi-
dents were seen at the Es-
sential Services: Center,
which was housed at the'


(Ernest Courtoy Civic
Center in Jasper. The
Center has now closed
and residents requiring
help are asked to direct
their calls to the Hamilton
County Emergency Man-
agement Services Center
at 386-792-6647.
According to Emer-
gency Management Di-
rector Henry Land, "Oth-
er changes affecting area
residents are the closing
of the bottled water distri-
bution centers. The boil
water advisory notice is
still in effect for Hamilton
County residents but
potable water is available
from tankers at the Cross-
roads Fire Department
and the Courthouse An-
nex (old high school).
The Belleville Fire De-
partment well water has.
been approved for.distrib-
ution as well. Residents
are to bring their own wa-
ter containers." .
Residents in. affected
areas are encouraged to
have their well water test-

Along the Suwannee
River near the campsites
area off CR 141, Bob
and Kathy Burton began
Securing their property
and preparing to evacu-
Sate when it became clear
floodwaters would con-
tinue to rise at their wa-.
terfront home. By Sun-
day .April 11, evacuation,
was imminent.
SAs they journeyed out
by boat, they stopped
.along the way helping
neighbors to secure
loose gas tanks, sheds
,and vehicles actually
evacuating one neigh-
bor who had waited too
late to leave the swift
rising deluge.
"We got a call on our
,.ell phone that a father
,was waiting for his son
and daughter-in-law to
..evacuate their home by
..boat," said.Bob Burton.
"The father had been
contacted by the son


and told that his boat
had died in the water
and they were hanging
on to a tree to avoid be-
ing swept away. We
were able to reach them
and tow them out to
safety."
Kathy Burton offered
a word of advice to oth-
ers in flood-prone areas:
"Don't let the river fool
you!"
Elsewhere, along the
Alapaha on the North-
ern end of the county,
Mike and Melody Lee
began securing their
property on Monday,,
April 6. By Tuesday,
they decided to move
most of their belongings
out or away from the
floor of their home on
the riverbank.
"On Tuesday the wa-
ter started rising quick,"
said Melody Lee. "We,
monitored it as it rose
two inches each hour."
"We feel we are


blessed because it did
not go on into the
house," she added.
"When it crested, it
stopped just short of en-
tering the house but it'
soaked the insulation
and joists. We would
like to say thank you to
Henry Land and all
those who helped for
the great work they
have done this year.
This disaster has been
handled better than any
in the 45 years I have
lived here -- and this
has been the worst."
Now, as floodwaters
begin to recede, some
area residents are able
to return to their homes
to assess the damage.
Unfortunately, a great
number of homes the
exact figure is still un-
clear remain inaccessi-
ble, according to emer-
gency officials.
Meanwhile, county of-
ficials are doing every-'


th ing they can to keep'
residents safe.
"We are dQing every-

'keep the public safe and

Commissioner Ronnie

N 7 "'M- YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT


Five important reasons


to immunize your child


You want to do what is
best for your children. You
know about the importance
of car seats, baby gates,
and other ways to keep
them safe. But, did you
know that one of the best
ways to protect your child
is to make sure they have
all of their vaccinations?
Immunizations can save
your child's life. Because
of advances in medical sci-
ence, your child can be
protected .against more dis-
eases than ever before.
Some diseases that once
injured or killed thousands
of children have been ,
eliminated completely and
others are close to being
gone-- primarily due to
safe and effective vaccines.
One example of the great
impact vaccines can have
is the eradication of polio
in the United States. Polio.
was once America's most-
feared disease causing
death and paralysis across
the country, but today,


thanks to vaccination, there
are no reports of polio in
the United States.
Vaccination is safe and
effective. All vaccines are
only given to children after
a long and careful review
by scientists, doctors, and
healthcare professionals.
Vaccines will involve some
discomfort and may cause
pain, redness, or tender-
ness at the site of injection
but this is minimal com-
pared to the pain, discom-
fort, and trauma of the dis-
eases these vaccines pre-
vent. The most comprehen-
sive scientific studies and
reviews have not found a
link between vaccines and
autism. Groups of experts,
including the American
Academy of Pediatrics, the
Institute of Medicine
(IOM), the National Insti-
tute of Health (NIH); the
Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention (CDC)
and other federal agencies
also agree that vaccines are
not responsible for the
number of children now
recognized to have autism.
Immunization protects
others you care about. Se-
rious :vaccine-preventable
diseases still occur. Unfor-
tunately, some babies are
too young to be completely
vaccinated and some peo-
ple may not be able to re-
ceive vaccinations due to
allergies, illness, weakened
immune systems, or other
reasons. To lielp keep these
individuals safe, it is im-
portant that you and your
children, who are able to
get vaccinated, are fully
immunized. This not only
protects your family, but
also helps prevent the


spread of these diseases to
your friends and loved
ones.
Immunizations can save
your family time and mon-
ey. A child with a vaccine-
preventable disease can be
kept out of schools or day-
care facilities. A prolonged
illness can take a financial
toll because of lost time at
work, medical bills, or
long-term disability care.
In comparison, getting vac-
cinated against these dis-
eases is a good investment
and usually covered by in-
surance. The Vaccines for
Children program is a fed-
erally funded program that
provides vaccines at.no
cost to children who might
not otherwise be vaccinat-
ed because of inability to
pay.
Immunization protects
future generations. Vac-
cines have reduced and, in
some cases, eliminated
many diseases that killed
or severely disabled people
just a few generations be-
fore. For example, small-
pox vaccination helped
eradicate that disease
world wide. Your children:
don't have to get smallpox
shots any more because the
disease no longer exists. If
we keep vaccinating now,
parents in the future may
be able to trust that dis-
eases like polio and
measles won't infect, crip-
ple, or kill children.
This information is pro-
vided for you by the Cen-
ters for Disease Control
(CDC) www.CDC.gov.
April 25 through May 2
is National Immunigation
Week. Check your child's
immunization record now


to assure his/her vaccines
are up to date. All immu-
nizations required for pub-
lic school admission, plus
some additional recom-
mended vaccines are avail-
able at the Suwannee
County Health Department
in Live Oak, Monday
through Friday from 8-11
a.m. and 1-4 p.m. Vaccines
are provided through the
Federal Vaccines for Chil-
dren program and are
available to infants and
children through 18 years
of age. If your child began
his or her immunizations
somewhere else, please
bring a record of the vac-
cines your child has re-,
ceived with you. Immu-
nizations are also available
by appointment at the
Branford clinic on Thurs-
days.
In addition to the Diph-
theria, Tetanus, Whooping
Cough, Polio, Measles,
Mumps, Rubdlla, Hepatitis
B and Chickenpox vac-
cines that are required for
public school admission,
we also can provide the
HPV vaccine for girls age
11-,18, meningocbccal vac-
cine to protect against a
form of meningitis for
those age 11-18, the ro-
tavirus, Haemophilus in-
fluenza (Hib) and Pneumo-
coccal vaccine for.infants
and young children, and
hepatitis A vaccine.

The art of the possible


By Derek Maul

A trip toW the mountains
is always good. More so
when summer is beginning
to settle in around Florida
and the cool north Georgia
air provides welcome
respite.
The retreat I attended
last iveekend was more
than refreshing it was re-
demptive. Around thirty
men from a Baptist church
made the commitment to
replenish their faith and to


encourage one another
along the way. By Sunday
lunch they'd accomplished
a lot more; they'd an-
swered the call to disciple-
ship, and they'd made
promises to God that have
the potential to revolution-
ize their North Atlanta'
congregation.
Sunday morning pulled
everything together. Sever-
al shared what God is up
to in their lives; I gave a
short message; then one of
the pastors led commu-
nion. I asked for five min-
utes at the end, and what
.transpired became a
poignant benedictory.
"This morning I spent
two reflective hours walk-
ing the grounds with this
basket," I said, holding out
a heavy container of
stones. "As I picked up
these stones along the way
I thought about each one


of you, and I prayed that
God would use you in
your church."
I took out a large round
rock and held it in my
palm. "I dug this one from
the bed of a stream; I
found another off the path,
and one out by the front
gate. Eventually the basket
became heavy, but I held
on to it and I thought
about the burden you're
carrying for this church.
"Here's my invitation: If
you'd like a tangible re-
minder of the work God is
doing in your life, then
come forward and take a
stone. There are enough
for every man."
Then, over the next few
minutes and one at a time,
each man in the room
came forward to choose
one of the rocks.
"God's love is spiritual,"
I said, "But it's also emo-


tional and intellectual and
physical. Jesus trusted his
disciple Peter enough to
call him 'Rocky'; then he
said, 'on this rock I'm go-
ing to build my church.'"
That small group of
men, taking refreshment in
the Georgia mountains, has
the same audacious,.
propulsive, purposeful,
life-giving creative power
at their disposal as Christ's
disciples had, 2,000 year
ago.
It's the art of the possi-
ble; it's what Jesus staked.
the future of his church
upon when he commis-
sioned the Twelve. It's up
to us where this Gospel
goes from here.

Love and blessings

them keep up their grades
and protected them from

Final Chapter
Her daughter [old her about Dr. Charolette Gerry a local dentist in town that had
fixed her teeth. She said she like the dentist a lot because she was gentle. friendly
and a \ery warm person. "'Momma. she has an ad in the newspaper for a 10 Point .,.
Health Teeth & Perfect Smile Examination for $39. That would gi\e ou an exam .
and x-rays to get you started." So. Suzy agreed to manke an appointment.
When she went for her 10 Point Healthx Teeth & Perfect Smile Examinauon for
$39.0, the staff as Smile Designs demonstrated their claim that they will never
embarrass patients or make them feel badly about their teeth. Suzy later said she was '
,ers comfortable, considering she was at the dentist's office.
Suzy thanked her daughter for the recommendation and said. "The w\a the\ ..
presented my treatment plan and pa ment options was % er) easy to understand and .
feasible. In the ,weeks that followed, I received my Smile Makeover, ,which included .
beautiful crowns, bleaching, Holly\ ood like eneers, and a life like partial."
Four months after her dental %work \was finished, she was back for her dental
cleaning.
When Dr. Gerr came in to do her penodic exam. Suz\ decided she would share
her store \\ith the doctor. As she became tearn -eyed. Dr. Gerrm said. "Oh, w hat's
wrong? \\h\ are you caring?" Suzy explained that she had just had her children and
grandchildren over on Sunday after church for dinner. When she was laughing at the
grandchildren's silliness, she put her hand oer her mouth, out of habit. Her children /
exclaimed. "BUT Monma. you don't have to do that anymore' Your smile is i

Oscar was like a child to our
family; my parents even called
her their "granddogger." She
brought a smile to the faces of
everyone who came in contact
with her, from the people
passing by her in the car to
little children who always
wanted to pet her. We always
said she didn't know she was a
D-O-G and not to tell her
because she would require
therapy. Oscar came to us at
six weeks of age and left us 12
years later. We're better
humans because of her. The
love and loyalty she brought us
was unconditional. If only
people greeted each other the
way she did when we came
home each evening.

So you had a bad day? Flat
tire? Slow waitress? Get cut
off in traffic? At times, and !
downright inconvenient, but
how we handle these situa-
tions may just tell us more
about our own character than we want to
know. In the book of Proverbs 24:10, the
Bible suggests that:
"If you falter in times of trouble, how
small is your strength."
Times of trouble can be useful to show
us what kind of moral fiber we are made
of, and if we are willing, they can strength-
en those fibers considerably. Often we fail

Don't Disturb Yourself

Most of the things that we fear the most, fortunately never come to pass, and even when
they do, they are often not as bad as we imagined they would be. The most dreaded
things in our lives are usually most
often the result of our vivid
imaginations, which run amok with
worries and imagined evils which
thankfully seldom occur. This is not
to say that horrible things never
happen; surely the world has plenty of
frightful misery. But, these things are
usually vastly exaggerated, and we
often worry needlessly about things
that never come to pass. Therefore, we
shouldfollow the advice bf the
serenity prayer: "God, grant me the
serenity to accept the things I cannot
change, the courage to change the
things I can, and the wisdom to know DO OT
the difference." There is simply
nothing else to do about the evils ofDISTURB
the world. That is, we need to change
them if we can or accept them if we
cannot. This exact sentiment is
expressed quite beautifully in a
Mother Goose nursery rhyme from
1695: "For every ailment under the
sun there is a remedy, or there is none; if there be one, try to find it; if there be none,
never mind it." Even a child couldfollow this simple logic, and yet as adults, we too
often fret and worry about things beyond our control. So, we should stop worrying and
get to work on the things that we can control, and trust that God will handle the rest.

Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
New K.J.V. Psalm 37:3
