Q: Is -dentistryl a relatively modern
science?
A: .People have been examining and
trying to learn about teeth since at least
5000 B.C. A Sumerian text from this
period describes "tooth worms" as the
cause of dental decay. By 2600 B.C.,
there was an Egyptian scholar, Hesy-Re,
sometimes referred to as the first dentist
because an inscription on his tomb
described him as "the greatest of those
who deal with teeth, and of physicians."
So the practice of dentistry has been
evolving and improving for thousands of
years.
.By the 13th century, in France there was
a Guild of Barbers. Barbers eventually
broke into two groups: surgeons who
were educated to perform, complex
surgeries, and lay barbers who performed
more mundane tasks like shaving,
bleeding and pulling teeth. In 1760, a
fellow named John Baker emigrated from
England to America anpd became the
earliest medically tra ied dentist to
practice here. In 1790, Josiah Flagg, an
American dentist; developed the first
dental chair. To a wooden Windsor chair,
Flagg attached an adjustable, headrest
anda ay to hold dental equipment. The
evolution continues today.

burning sensations, sensitivityto touch, and muscle weakness.
Because sensations may be decreased, persons with diabetes are
advised to check their feet regularly to identify any minor injuries
that could lead to serious infection.%if the injury is not noticed.
A variety of types of medications are available for the treatment of.
diabetic-associated pain, however not al.l are approved by the Food

Singing their hearts out at SIS


The Suwannee.Intermediate Chorus. Photo: Submitted


By Renee Bass
Chorus students sang their hearts,out
during their spring performance April 30
and May 1. Under the direction of SIS
music teacher Susan Roush, students sang
as sweet as.spring songbirds, delighting
the audience with songs in Spanish, Latin
and, sign language.
Students were all smiles as they
performed a wide variety of songs,
including a swaggering pirate song and
upbeat "Pick a bale of cotton." Pat
Roberts was the accompanist and
dedicated many hours to make the
performance possible.


"Fine arts are just as important as sports
and other competitive events," said Bill
Yanossy, principal at SIS.
Teaching through the arts can be done in
many different-ways and is an excellent
way to reinforce the students' learning
experience. Former Secretary of
Education William Bennett wrote, "The
arts are essential elements of education
just like reading, writing and arithmetic -
Music, dance, painting and theater are
keys to unlock profound human
understanding and accomplishment."
Parents, encourage your children to take
part in future productions.

OPINION

A flashback that's

quite comical
Sitting in my backporch swing
last/night, having a refreshment
and listening to an orchestra of
frogs from a pond just back of my,
yard, I was suddenly taken aback .
about a decade to that thing we
called Y2K. And I laughed out
loud, just sitting there by myself.
In fact, I laughed about as loud
as I did back in 1999 when I began hearing of all
the emergency plans we had to make because
someone in computerworld'did not account for the
turning of a new century. Soie folks thought there
would be a cosmos afflictipn/meltdown..
I did not fall for it one bit. I saw it as a scam for
those folks in the software business to make a bun-
die with "corrective" software.
'Maybe, my.iattitude was just because. I'm not a
computer genius and didn't know enough to get
scared, or it could be that I was born skeptical and
.cynical and later had a relapse. Some.of thqse peo-
pie made it sound like there was a danger that the
world would not function after the stroke of mid-
night.
SOur newspaper operation was-run by another
company at the time. And on the night prior to
2000 clicking in, we had to make routine calls to
our "brain central" to report on how things were
going.
SAnd I would say in my report, "All is well.The
Faucets still work and the commodes still flush.
And our computers are still working as well. Go
figure. We'll get the paper out."
My point was that about the worst thing that
could have happened in our industry was that the
printed dates might be wrong. And by gosh, I ar-
gued, we had the technology to change them.
I posed that the sun would come up the lext day.
and the birds would sing, car horns would still
blow, raw oysters would still taste good on saltine
crackers with Louisiana Hot Sauce. And my mama
would still love me.
As well, baseball.would still adhere to three
strikes and you're out, cabbage would still make
slaw and sauerkraut and bubble gum would still
lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight.
I just refused to get excited by a faux emergency.
Maybe that's because I came into the newspaper in-
dustry at a time when we still used Underwoords
and Remingtons. Gallies of type were set from
molten lead. And I saw several transitions before
we got to computers. Some of us veterans had put
out newspapers with'much less technology. We had
learned how to improvise and get another newspa-
per edition out even on our worst days with real
emergencies.
That night, we all had to stay at our posts until
the year 2000 was officially in. It was like some
people were just sitting there waiting 'for some kind
of quake or sonic boom. At one second after mid-
night, I jumped up and yelled, "I told you so! ToL
day is Saturday,.January one. And it didn't fall off
the calendar.
And that night I watched Michigan beat Alabama
35-34 in the Orange Bowl in overtime. The field
was still 100 yards long the time clock and play
clock both functioned. I had my traditional New
SYear's Day supper of dried blackeyed peas. And
they functioned as well. Oh the memories!

Protest and Pray?
On April 15th'I was excited to see over 500 people
from Suwannee County join together at our local Tea
Party.
The next Tuesday I was with a group of local pastors
as we planned the program for the National Day of
Prayer. Since that meeting I have been comparing the
two activities. The Tea Party was a protest against high
taxes and growing government control. The National
Day of Prayer is a time when citizens come together to
pray for almost every phase of our society.
As I considered these two events, I thought how
wonderful it would be to have over 500 people gather-
ing on the steps of the City Hall and causing the police
to close White Avenue as we pray for our country.
Ten pastors will be leading us as we ask the One with
the truth power to guide our leaders as they make deci-
sions.
We complain about the Federal Government that

OPINION


Arrogance and ignorance


Early in the campaign, and one hundred days
into the new presidency, the American people have
witnessed the relentless and desperate attempts of
an inexperienced Obama to gain credibility on the
economy and surround himself with seasoned for-
eign policy advisors and a Cabinet that is yet to be
completely filled, -only resulting in multiple em-
barrassments for the administration and an enlight-
ening preview into the next four years.
Time and time again, arrogance emerges from
the Obama persona. It'started with the Obama
World Tour, a time when
he was a candidate and
not even ahead in the ThejA
polls. Traveling in a lux- Uy
ury jet, with the Big
Three anchors following
close behind, he drowned himself in the problems
of the, world, submerged in the notion that this so-
journ would somehow add a newfound credibility
to his political resume, for this was an obvious,
yet risky, political move. Upon his return and thd
weeks thereafter, there were no major shifts in.
public opinion about his foreign policy; Obama
clearly failed in his clever attempt. Recently, he
was casually photographed laughing with the po-
litically polarizing figures of Hugo Chavez and
Daniel Ortega. He, along with the First Lady,
broke royal protocol when visiting the Queen of
England. These mishaps are silly mistakes that re-
flect poorly on the abilities of the greatest nation
in the world. However, these examples greatly at-
test to Obama's lack of experience and do not bode


well for a successful future in American foreign
policy. Though such flaws seem harmless, serious
ramifications could materialize in the form of an-
other 9/11.
He did manage in later months to woo Ameri-
cans over the economy, but even on this terrain he
proved to display a similar facade. Obama's pro-*
motion of the fallacy that government can heavily
spend and tax to recover from a recession, when
history constantly reminds us that free market cap-
italism.truly ignites efficiency within the Ameri-
Scan worker and busi-
nessman. Ignorance of
simple economic prin-
cipiles proves detrimen-
tal to the pockets of the
American people, only
expanding the power of Uncle Sam.
The absence of world knowledge within the
presidency, coupled with the grave errors mired in
his administration, invites terrorists and powerful
dictators, such as Chavez and Ortega, to take ad-
vantage of the weaknesses brought to light by a
clumsy administration. One must inquire: will
Obama continue to have friendly relations with the
world's dangerous dictators? will you have any
money in your pockets after big government has
drained your bank account? will you have a safe
and prosperous future, or will all your hard work
go to fund an arrogant and ignorant government?

day we will pray for those who lead it.
We call the Democrat's Rant and Rave line about the
school system and the county and city leaders that day
we ask God to give them the wisdom necessary to
make those difficult decisions.
We complain because no one speaks out in support of
the young men and women who protect our country -
that day we ask the Ultimate Protector to watch over
them.
We see the crime in our streets that day we ask God
to change the hearts of those that create the problems.
At 12 noon on Thursday, May 7 we will gather to
pray. Whether you were one of the persons at the Tea
Party or whether you objected to its goals, come to City
Hall and join with us as we ask the Almighty to watch
over our county, schools, city, country, military, state
and'society.

Branford residents lining up for help


Those affected are urged to apply while
federal officials are stationed locally

al Emergency Manage-
ment Agency is growing
daily. As of Sunday, 66 res-
idents in Suwannee County
had applied for assistance
at the two local Disaster
Recovery Centers,
Cmeron said. Thirty-five
have applied at the Bran-
ford center and 31 at the
Live Oak center.
Robert Earl, whose
propeity.is 1,800 feet from
the Suwannee River in
Branford, was among the
applicants. He received his
first check,from FEMA
Tuesday. It was just over
$1,500 to help repair water
damages to* his mobile
home,
"The water came


through every seam we
had. It got in the walls, the
insulation and floors," Earl
said.
Earl also expects to re-
ceive a second check for
about the same amount to
replace his driveway that
was washed out.
Floodwaters also killed
200 of Earl's 300 chickens.
Though he took the chick-
ens to higher ground many
of them swam back and
drowned.
"It was paififul," he said.
"These were productive
chickens. They earned
their keep."
Earl's three emus were
saved after he brought
them to higher ground.
"We almost lost them but
iny wife coached them to


swim to an island on our
property," he said, adding
the animals swam 180-200
feet in four-foot deep wa-
ter.
Earl said while federal
funds won't cover his agri-
culture losses, he plans on
applying for a low-interest
loan to cover costs through
the small business admin-
istration.
Emergency Management
officials urge residents af-
fected by the flood to visit
a local Disaster Recovery
Center while FEMA offi-
cials remain in town.
Cameron said while
there is no deadline to ap-
ply for assistance, FEMA
officials will stay in the
area until the number of
applicants dwindle.


Those who do not quali-
fy for FEMA funds might
qualify for a low interest
loan through the SBA.
The Disaster Recovery
Centers are also supplying
bottled water, larvicide and
bug spray to individuals af-
fected by the flood.
Officials say the increase
of mosquitoes is a concern
due to standing waters.
County commissioners
have issued a request to the
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services for
aerial spraying in the coun-
ty.
"I live four to five miles
from the river and they are
bad at my house," said
Commissioner Wesley
Wainwright, who serves
the Branford area. "Out-
side of general health is-
sues it's just uncomfort-
able."
Wainwright said as of


Monday the county hadn't
heard whether that request
will be met.
Cameron urges residents
who have standing water
near their home to use lar-
vicide to prevent mosqui-
toes.
The Suwannee County
Health Department is pro-
viding free water testing
kits to those who suspect
their wells have been af-
fected by flood conditions.
Sallie Ford, environmental
health director for Suwan-
nee and Lafayette Health
Departments, gave criteria
for receiving the kits: A
resident's well must be, or
have been, underwater; or
the resident must live with-
in one mile of the flood
area and have either a
change in color, taste, odor
or clarity of their water.
Individuals may call the
Suwannee County Health


Department in Branford at
386-935-1133 and in Live
Oak at 386-362-2708.
A total of 257 Suwannee
County homes were affect-
ed by flood conditions, ac-
cording to figures released
April 21 by the State
Emergency Response
Team. Nineteen homes
were destroyed, 55 suf-
fered major damage, 30
sustained minor damage
and 153 were inaccessible.
Two Disaster Recovery
Centers are set up in

ford: at Hatch Park Com-
munity Center located 403

By George Petrena
Thirty-five people who say they're fed
up with government spending and
bailouts, met to form protest groups at the
Gathering in Branford on Thursday.
Peggy Maloney read the nine principles
of the 9-12 group:
1.America is Good.
2. I believe in God and He is the
Creator of my life.
3. I must always try to be a more honest
person than I was yesterday.
4. The family is sacred. My spouse and
I are the ultimate authority, not the
'* t


government.
5. If you break the law you pay the
penalty. Justice is blind and no one is
above it:
6. Ihave the right t life, liberty and
pursuit of happiness, but there is no
guarantee of equal results.
7. I work hard for what I have andI. will
share it with who I want to. Government
cannot force me to be charitable.
8. It is not un-American for me to
disagree with authority or to share my
personal opinion.
9. The government works for me. I do


not answer to them, they answer to me.


Tina Gaylord then read the 12 values:
1. Honesty.
2 Reverence.
3. Hope.
4. Thrift.
5. Humility.
6. Charity.
7. Sincerity.
8. Moderation.
9. Hard Work.
10. Courage.


11. Personal Responsibility.
12. Gratitude.


Those offering comments at the meeting
included, among others, John Lacquey:
"We need to cut spending, cut taxes, and
have our politicians vote no on the
budget";
Jan Touchton: "Stay involved, keep
busy, 9-12 is going to grow, we've got to
do something for our grandchildren, and
great grandchildren, who will pay for

River restrictions


lifted at Branford


Idle-speed, no-wake zone no
longer in effect in Zone 3

.When Suwannee River floodwaters at
Branford fell below.24 feet, the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission
deactivated boating restrictions in Zone 3.
Zone 3 runs from Little River Spring to
the County Road 340 Bridge at Rock Bluff.
This 23-mile segment is an idle-speed, no-
wake zone as long as the Suwannee River is
at 24 feet or more above mean sea level, as
indicated on the Branford gauge.
The FWC activated restrictions in this
zone on April 8.
'This morning (Monday), we verified
with the Suwannee River Water
Management District that the water level
there has fallen below the required 24 feet at
Branford," said Capt Roy Brown, area
supervisor at the FWC's Lake City office.
"Zones 4 and 5 are still idle-speed, no-
wake," Brown said. "Because of a
malfunctioning gauge, we briefly put out
information about Zone 4 being lifted.
However,1this information was erroneous.
Zone 4, from the C.R. 340 Bridge at Rock
Bluff to one mile below.the Fowler Bluff
boat ramp, is still active, and we still have
officers patrolling that area to enforce the
idle-speed, no-wake zone."'
For information about which zones are
still active and which zones are have been
lifted, check out MyFWC.com, Brown said.
An idle-speed, no-wake zone means a
vessel must proceed at a speed no greater
than what is required to maintain
steerageway and headway. At no time is any
vessel required to proceed so slowly that the
operator is'unable to control it or anything it
may be towing.
The Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers are
divided into five flood zones.


FWC lifts restrictions
When Suwannee River floodwaters at
Wilcox fell below 9 feet Tuesday, the .
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) deactivated boating

below the Fowler Bluff boat ramp. This 51-
mile segment falls under the boating
restrictions as long as the Suwannee is at 9
feet or more above mean sea level, as

speed, no-wake," Brown said, "and we still

GAMETIME

Street Fighter IV


ouuy wt


By Cody Webb
Most gamers who have
ever been to an arcade will
recognize the name "Street
Fighter." They may not
have played it, but they
surely noticed the crowd of
people huddled around the
machine, cheering and
jeering whoever was play-.
ing. The series dropped off
of the radar for quite a few
years, only surfacing last
year in the Xbox Live Ar-
cade as Super Street Fight-
er II Turbo: HD Remix.
Well guess what, fighting
fans? It's back.
The most influential
fighting game series makes
its triumphant return in the
form of Street Fighter IV,
which is available for ei-'
ther the Xbox 360 or the
PS3. This series is respon-
sible .for most of .the
themes gamers see in to-
day's. fighting games, such


The annual
community-wide
May Butterfly
Memorial Service
will be held at the
Suwannee Valley
Care Center, 6037
U.S. Hwy. 90 West,
Lake City, on
Tuesday, May 12,
6:30 p.m.
The public who
have lost loved ones
are invited to this
service which will
be held outside in
the courtyard area
with readings, songs,
prayers,
acknowledgement' of
grief, and release of
butterflies.
Participants are
encouraged to bring
mementos of their
loved ones for
display, and
refreshments will be
provided afterwards
in the auditorium.
For more
information, you
may contact the
chaplain, Rev.,
Lynwood Walters at
the Haven Hospice

as the quarter-turn and
counters. Street Fighter II
even helped save video
games and arcades from
the great crash' back in the
'80s. Capcom did a fantas-
tic job of bringing this
revered fighting series
from classic 2-D to 3-D
gameplay.
4o let's take a closer look
at Street Fighter i. At first
glance, it may seem like a
normal fighting game, but
once you pick up the con-
troller it is a totally differ- >
ent experience. SFIV is
fast, with combos and
counters flying all over the
place. Responsive controls
help fighters wail on each
other~ With combo after
combo, rewarding players
for taking the time to learn
the moves for their favorite
characters.
Speaking of characters,
SFIV's roster, consists of
several fighters from'
throughout the Street
Fighter timeline. Old fa-
vorites such: as yu and
Chun-Li return, along with
four newbies to the series.
Every character .offers aa
different fighting style,i aid'
mastering their moves is
key to winning battles
quickly. Youw can get
through by just button-
mashing, sure, but if you


go up against a veteran
then you will most likely
lose horribly.
The fighting system is
easy enough to learn, new
players will be able to pull
off some of the easier
moves quickly. It takes
time and practice to learn
some of the more intricate
combos, though. A tip from
me: definitely learn to
block, it can save your life.
The tide of battle can shift
rather quickly, though,
since Capcom added in
"Super Combos" and "Ul-
tra Combos." Super Com-
bos don't have the punch of
Ultra Combos, but they can
seriously damage an unsus-
pecting opponent. The Ul-
tra Combos are huge, over-
the-top combos that are
used by filling up a "re-
venge meter" as you take
damage. Once unleashed,
They cai .cripple an oppo-
nent in seconds flat, pro-
viding an amusing anima-
tion as well.
'The animations will im-
ptess any fighting game
critic, the characters look
like they've just jumped
ut' of a comic book and
into -D. Simply put: this
game is one amazing-look-
ing 'fighter. Screenshots
don't do the game any jus-
tice, gamers have to see it


in motion to appreciate
how much work went into
designing the models,
backgrounds and the fluid
animations.
As with any fighting
game, the meat of the expe-
rience comes from online
competitive play. There are
offline, single-player
modes and while they can
be fun, they certainly don't
entertain as much as a
well-played match against
another human opponent.
Nothing beats getting with
a bunch of friends and sit-
ting around while playing
Street Fighter on one TV.
Bets will be made, friend-
ships will be tested, con-
trollers may or may not be
thrown. It's worth repeat-
ing: new players will want
to practice, practice, prac-
tice before attempting a
fight against a vet.
So would I recommend
Street Fighter IV? Oh,
most definitely, this is one
game any fighting fan
won't want to pass up. It's
great to see an old series
getting a spectacular
makeover like this one, I
only wish more developers
could pull it off with as
much aplomb. I'll give it an
A, and now if you'll excuse
me, I have some Hadokens
to dish out.

The Suwannee High School band for 2008-09. Photo: Submitted

SHS Band Boosters is inaugural participant


First Federal Bank of Florida proudly
introduces the Community Rewards
Program, a new way for First Federal and
the community to partner together to
support local community organizations:
The program uses First Federal debit
cards to build up contributions to
participating organizations. Every time a
First Federal customer, who is enrolled in


the Community Rewards Program, uses
their debit card to make a signature-
based transaction, First Federal will
donate money to the partnering
organization.
Suwannee High Band Boosters is the
inaugural organization to partner with
First Federal on this program. The SHS
Band Boosters asked to participate to


help offset the cost of purchasing new
uniforms.
Ginny Crews, who has been actively
involved with the SHS Band for over 16,
years, said, 'This is a great program from
First Federal that will assist in improving
the SHS Band." She enrolled in the
program to do her part in helping the
band raise money for their new uniforms.


"I encourage any and all who are
interested in helping the band raise
money to enroll in this program."
If you are interested in signing up for
the First Federal Community Rewards
Program for the SHS Band Boosters,
please contact Lori Conner by phone at
362-3433, ext. 3518 or by email at

Her project was "Does
Elevation Affect the
Amount of Total Dissolved

Boggus disproved her
hypothesis relating
elevation above sea level
and total dissolved solids.
Lacey Caskin and
Rachael Ibarra: 9th
grade, Branford High
School, worked with lab
mice to determine if
feeding habits had an
impact on weight gain.
They hoped to apply their
research to disprove the
idea that skipping meals
accelerates weight loss.
Brent Fout and Isaac
Tyre: 6th grade, BHS,
competed with their
project, "Does a Carbon
Arrow Penetrate a Target
Further than Wood or

Oak branch would have
been severely curtailed and
the Branford library would
have likely been closed, he
said.
It couldn't have come at
a worse time for residents.
"We're at our all-time
high usage because of the
economy," Hales said Fri-
day. "We're hearing things
like, 'I've cut off my Inter-
net because we're on food
stamps.'"
Hales said hundreds of
people come to the li-
brary's Live Oak branch
daily to search the Internet
for job listings or inquire
about state or federal aid or
veterans' benefits. Students
who require Internet access
for homework assignments
have also been showing up
in record numbers.
Budget conference com-
mittee members late last
week cut state libraries'
budget from $25 million to
zero. Sunday night howev-


er, a decision was reached
to fund the libraries at
$21.2 million -- the thresh-
old amount for triggering
$8 million in federal
matching funds.
Hales said he is thankful
to everyone who helped
spread the news about the
loss of funding. Thousands
called, emailed or wrote
their representative, sena-
tor or the governor.
"That wouldn't be possi-
ble without the sponsors
we have," Hales said Mon-
day. "I want to thank the
coverage of the Suwannee
Democrat, and the citizens
that said this was important
to them."
The crisis began after the
Friday print edition of the
Democrat had gone to
press, but was covered ex-
tensively on the paper's
Web site, suwanneedemoc-
rat.com. Hales said the
Chamber of Commerce
and Friends of the Library
were also an integral part
in getting the word out.

COMMENTARY

Timeless

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
Jack
Pardee,
Jacksonville's
head coach,
recently
introduced
the new
uniforms of
the Jaguars.
Coach called them
timeless. Silver and black
is timeless and lately
winless. Jack had better
hope that is the last time he
uses the stffix "less." The
NFL has decided to have
AFL throwback jerseys in
honor of their 50-year
mark. Jay Cutler may have
left the Broncos for that
very reason. Wait till you
see Denver's orange and
blue bumble-bee socks..
Remember the Titans? The
New York Polo Grounds
playing football Titans.
The Yankees are
evidently oblivious to the
recession. No one is
clamoring for those $2,500
seats behind home plate. As
a young man, justtafter the
discovery of fire, I could go
to Yankee Stadium buy a
bleacher seat for 90 cents,
walk down to the box seats,
give the usher $3 and seat
next'to Dan Topping (he
used to own the-Yankees)
behind home plate think
the Steinbrenner boys are
not aware that we were
raised on rice and beans or
spaghetti because we could
afford it. We didn't have to

like it, we just had to eat it.
Samuel Morse, inventor
of the telegraph (in Morse
Code, dot dot dot dash
dash dash dot dot dot),
didn't realize how timeless
his invention would be.
Alexander Graham Bell I
am sure is rolling a bit
under the earth as I type.
We don't talk anymore, we
text. The SFS generation,
that is sugar, fat and salt,
are wearing their
fingerprints off on cell
phone pads everywhere.
The CSI writers are ,
coming up with the script.
A new generation of carpal
tunnel syndrome replaces
tennis elbow. How long
before this becomes an
Olympic sport. Steroids or
underage Chinese children
will be of no assistance in
this endeavor. Perhaps they
can do it at Coney Island
as a warm-up to the hot
dog eating contest.
The NHL and NBA'
playoffs continue. Talk
about timeless, I am ready
for the proverbial coin toss
to decide the winner.
I shouldn't be too
negative, big cities and
Canadians deserve
something to.watch
besides football and
A"baseball. Much like
Virginia Foxx I said it but
o-:1cbn't really mean ii.
everybody's s playoffs are
i'fo long, except baseball
"~d football. Much like
Michael Fox back to the

SGolf has the Champions
'd our, formerly the Seniors
Tour. It is -great to see the
i 'gends play. The real
i legends, not the guys you
play with on Sunday, they
F' are not legends but some
S: of their play is legendary.
S It is also great to see the
i guys who had to work and
04 raise families get an
t opportunity to live a dream
t after age 50. In honor of
Sb: .tlis less than victimless
V, spprt, I propose a round of
Sl g61f where guys named
S,, Tiger, Phil and Davis play
With wooden shafts and
Si wooden drivers. They can
Splay off the ladies' tee if
Need be, but still won't
shoot their incredible
i '' scores.
SHideki Irabu is making
* comeback. Can Brett Favre
" be far behind? Edgar
SAffonso and Carl Everett

Splaying for the Long Island

p about a day where major

Aluminum bats. They can
Scall it Death Wish XIV.

j As things change the

not 90-cent seats? If the

Free hunter safety courses offered


Don't wait ... get educated early
by attending one of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) free hunter
safety courses.
"It's a good idea to take a course
early in the year while there are
many available. Classes offered
late in the year quickly reach stu-
dent capacity and it may be diffi-
cult to enroll in a class close to.
hunting season," said Steve Rob-
bins, regional hunter safety coordi-
nator.
Some are traditional classes and'
some are online/CD courses. Inter-
ested hunters can check out
http://MyFWC.com/huntered or
call the Lake City Regional Office
at (386) 758-0525 for more infor-
mation.
The classes being offered are:

Get in on the action; apply for a special-opportunity hunt


If you haven't
been seeing the
quantity or quality
of game you'd like,
you may want to
consider applying
for a special-oppor-
tunity hunt. For the
past 12 years, the
Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission
(FWC) has offered
these unique fall-
season hunts for
deer, wild hog and
released quail on the
state's best public
hunting lands.
Maybe it's time you
look into getting in
on the action and ex-


Outta' the

Woods


By Tony


perience the hunt of a lifetime.
SThese extraordinary hunts of-
fer large tracts of land with an
abundance of game and low
hunting pressure. All deer hunts
enable you to take only mature
bucks with at least one antler
having at least four points.
Hunters can take does during
archery hunts and, if they draw


an antlerless
deer permit,
also during
general gun
hunts. This
practice of
quality deer
management
offers hunters
excellent
chances of tak-
ing quality
bucks and the
opportunity to
take a doe on
public land.
There is no
size or bag
limit on hog


Young hunts.
These spe-
cial-opportuni-
ty deer and wild hog hunts take
place on Fort Drum (Indian Riv-
er County), Lake Panasoffkee
(Sumter County), Triple N
Ranch (Osceola County) and
Green Swamp West Unit (Pasco
County) wildlife management
areas.
Fort Drum has several gun
hunts on its 20,858 acres, each


one costing $50, should you get
drawn. Besides taking 18 deer,
hunters bagged 45 hogs there
last year.
Lake Panasoffkee offers
archery hunts on the 8,676-acre
tract. Hunters harvested 35 deer
and 64 hogs there last season.
Triple N Ranch has two gen-
eral gun deer and hog hunts, and
28 deer were taken off the
15,391 acres last year, and so
were 49 hogs.
Green Swamp West Unit is
where James Stovall took the
state's highest-scoring deer on
record a 25-point, nontypical
that netted a 206 Boone-and-
Crockett score. He took the tro-
phy buck in 1999 after getting
drawn for the special-opportuni-
ty archery hunt. The area offers
archery and gun hunts on 34,335
acres. Last year, hunters bagged
58 deer, and 319 hogs were tak-
en from there.
The FWC also has week-long
released-quail hunts on Black-
water Carr Unit in Santa'Rosa
County. With these hunts, you
must bring and.release your own
pen-raised quail. There's just


one $100-permit available for
each of the 16 weeks, and if
you're lucky enough to draw
one, you and up to three of your
friends will have the entire 590
acres to yourselves.
If you'd like to apply for any
of these great hunts, the first
thing.you'll need to d6 is get a
2009-2010 Special-Opportunity
Fall Hunt Worksheet available
at FWC offices and at
MyFWC.com/Hunting.
Beginning at 10 a.m. (EDT)
on May 1, you can submit your
completed application at
www.wildlifelicense.com or at
any county tax collector's office
or license agent. The application
period runs through midnight on
May 31.
These coveted permits are se-
lected by random drawing, and
you may apply for as many
hunts and dates as you like to
increase your chances of being
selected. You must include a $5
nonrefundable fee for each hunt
you apply for, though hunters
are limited to drawing only one
permit per hunt.
If you're selected in the ran-


dom drawing, you should re-
ceive an invoice about mid-June.
You have until the deadline
specified on the invoice to pay
the cost of the selected hunt, if
you get drawn, and you may do
so at any license agent or tax
collector's office. Special-oppor-
tunity hunt permits are transfer-
able by simply giving the permit
to another person. Permit hold-
ers under age 16, or those who
are certified mobility-impaired,
may have a nonhunting assistant
accompany them during all spe-
cial-opportunity hunts.
Whether still hunting all by
yourself or dog hunting with
family and friends for deer, hogs
or released quail, the FWC's
special-opportunity fall hunts'
are just what the doctor ordered
for a premium hunting experi-
ence.

Tony Young is the media rela-
tions coordinator for the FWC's
Division of Hunting and Game
Management. You can reach him
with questions about special-op-
portunity hunts orhow to apply

.Marathon globetrotting shorebirds take a break in Jacksonville


The red knots are returning to Duval .
County. These shorebirds rack up thou-
sands of frequent-flier miles annually as
they migrate from as far away as Tierra
del Fuego, where they winter with pen-
guins, and in anticipation of their final
push to breeding grounds they share with
polar bears on the Arctic tundra.
They are currently making a spectacle
of themselves in northeast Duval Coun-
ty's coastal inlets. For a few weeks in the
spring, these marathon migrants flock to
the coast of Northeast Florida like
nowhere else in the state.
Once called "beach robins" for their
reddish-brown spring plumage, these
compact and extremely powerful fliers
spend their entire lives)in perpetual mo-
tion yet one of the most important
places. in their life cycle is in Jack-
sonville's own backyard, said Monique
Borboen, Audubon of Florida NE Pro-
gram staff person,
Specifically, Nassau Sound and Fort
George Inlet are important staging areas
where these birds make landfall, feed and
rest, gaining weight in preparation for the


next leg of their journey. As a result the
area has contributed much to what is
known about these marathon globetrot-.
ters.
Once numbering more than 100,000,
red knot populations have
plummeted to fewer than 18,000 in re-
cent years. Their future remains uncer-
tain. For a bird'that spends so much of its
life traveling between distant breeding
and wintering grounds, widely
separated coastal stopover sites like
those in Northeast Florida
are critical. While here, the red knots
gorge on small surf clams
to build muscle and fat reserves for the
final push north to arctic
breeding grounds.
"If the birds aren't able to gain enough
weight, they will continue to migrate but
fail to nest. If they don't have enough fat,
there's a possibility they could die during
the migration," said Anni Mitchell, Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission biologist.
Locally, knots are most frequently.
found on the large sand bar of


Fort George Inlet, on the islands and
shores in Nassau Sound, and
along the north beach of Huguenot
Park. Knots are most sensitive to
dogs (on and off leashes), closely ap-
proaching beach walkers, kite
surfers, personal watercraft and low-
flying aircraft.
While researching shorebirds, scientists
have found convincing evidence that fre-
quent beach disturbance from humans
critically
impaired the birds' abilities to prepare
for the next leg of their journey and that
many consequently died..
Whether or not the disturbance is in-
tentional, every time.the birds
are flushed from foraging or resting
-sites, their health and breeding success is
imperiled. For the brief time the knots
are here, caution and consideration on the
part of the public significantly contribute
to the species' welfare and continued sur-
vival, according to Mitchell.
"The best thing that beach-goers can
do to help the birds is to keep their dis-
tance," Mitchell said. "Folks should try


The red knot gets its name from its
reddish plumage during breeding
season and the "k-nut" sound it
sometimes makes.

to stay at least 200 feet back to keep the
birds from feeling threatened and causing
them to be flushed."
"It's a shame the birds that spend their
summers with polar bears and their win-
ters with penguins at the opposite end of
the earth ,quld be jeopardized by pet
dogs or recreation in a local inlet," Bor-
boen said. "These birds help make Jack-
sonville special, and they deserve the
consideration of everyone who enjoys the
beach."


Snook season closes May

1 in Gulf, Everglades and

Monroe County waters

The recreational harvest season for
snook will close beginning May 1 in
all of Florida's Gulf of Mexico, Ever-
glades National Park and Monroe
County coastal and inland waters. The
harvest season for snook will remain
closed until Sept. 1 in these areas.
Seasonal harvest closures protect
S Florida's valuable snook populations
and help sustain and improve the fish-
ery for the future.
The recreational harvest season for
snook will remain open until June 1 in
Florida's Atlantic coastal and inland
waters, including Lake'Okeechobee
and the Kissimmee River. Anglers
may keep one snook between 28-32
inches total length per day from these
,waters.


Biologists rescue elusive

manatee in Key Largo


Biologists'with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion's, (FWC) Fish and Wildlife Re-
search Institute, with the help of the
Miami Seaquarium and the Dolphin
Research Center, rescued a manatee
on Wednesday from Tarpon Basin
in Key Largo.
More than two years ago, FWC
biologists learned of a manatee with
a front flipper severely entangled in
monofilament fishing line. The biol-
ogists made several attempts to res-
cue the adult female manatee. They
were concerned about the manatee's
chance for survival, because fishing
line can cut off circulation, leading
to amputation of the flipper and.
possibly death.
Earlier in the week, a biologist
with the U.S. Geological Survey


.was able to spot the animal and
: place a tracking device on the tail.
- This device allowed FWC biologists
to later track the.manatee and fol-
low it to an area suitable for rescue.
Because of the severity of the en-
tanglement, FWC biologists trans-
ported the manatee to the Miami
Seaquarium for removal of the
monofilament line. The animal will
be released back into the wild once
it is medically cleared by veterinari-
ans.
To report a dead or distressed
manatee, call the FWOWildlife
Alert hotline at 888-404-FWCC
(3922).

Get Outdoors Florida!


By Bob Wattendorf
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

"Be it resolved that the Governor and
Cabinet of the State of Florida do hereby
recognize the Get Outdoors Florida! coali-
tion and the Children's Outdoor Bill of
Rights.and encourage all Floridians and
their families' participation in outdoor activ-
ities throughout the year."
With those words, Gov. Charlie Crist and
his cabinet prompted a huge leap forward
for agencies, nonprofits and private groups
that have been working to make it easier for
youth, families and entire communities to
get back to nature.
The Get Outdoors Florida! coalition, does
not receive direct funding from government
agencies. However, agencies such as the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission and the departments of Envi-
ronmental Protection (state parks), Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services (state forests),
Education, and Health are all actively in-
volved. Their federal counterparts from the


U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service are equally active, as are
various universities, nonprofit groups, com-
mercial enterprises and individual citizens.
The partners have all known for years
that children are healthier and happier when
they have active outdoor recreation. They
do better in school, and such children grow
up with a better understanding of nature and
what it takes to be good stewards of our re-
sources. Many coalition partners have built
their own programs to address these con-
cerns, but now Get Outdoors Florida! is al-
lowing them to come together more effec-
tively and efficiently based on solid research
and a list of guiding principles and best
practices.
Research published by the Children and
Nature Organization has shown an array of
major national health issues are related to
reduced physical activity and to a reduced
connection with nature. During the past 20
years, the amount of time children spend
outdoors has been reduced 50'percent, with
electronic media from TV to video


games now accounting for an average of
six hours of their time per day. Each hour of
TV watched per day increases the likelihood
of a child having attention-deficit, hyperac-
tivity disorder by age 7 by an astounding 10
percent. Other effects include obesity, atten-
tion deficit disorder, impaired social skills,
higher stress levels, asthma and poorer per-
formance in the classroom.
For a summary of this research see
www.GetOutdoorsFlorida.com and especial-
ly our links to the Children and Nature Net-
work and National Wildlife Federation.
The New York Times reported on Andrea
Faber Taylor's research at the Landscape
and Human Health Laboratory at the Uni-
versity of Illinois, which suggests all chil-
dren benefit from spending time in nature.
This may be because the brain uses two
forms of attention: "directed" attention to
concentrate on work, reading and tests, and
"involuntary" attention, which takes over
.when we're distracted by things like run-
ning water, a beautiful sunset or watching a
turtle slip into the water from a fallen log.
Directed attention, is limited and hours in
front of a computer or playing video games
can leave us feeling fatigued. Time spent in
natural settings, seems to activate involun-
tary attention, giving the brain's directed at-


tention time to rest.
The Get Outdoors Florida! coalition
brings many partners together to show how
easy it is to offset these trends by simply let-
ting kids play outdoors. Whether it is an af-
ternoon spent gardening and watching but-
terflies, a casual bream fishing trip, a walk
in a county park, or a weekend camping ad-
venture, getting outdoors is important and
brings numerous 15lnefits to children, fami-
lies and individuals.
To make it even easier for parents and
groups that want a new experience in na-
ture, www.GetOutdoorsFlorida.com lists
simple activities and tips and provides a list
of partners and events from all around the
state that take advantage of Florida's year-
round temperate climate to provide an un-
ending array of opportunities. The focus is
on safe, active and ecologically sustainable
nature-based activities that can be enjoyed
for a lifetime a lifetime that will be more
enjoyable and last longer.

Fun Night Out

Some friends and I use
to get together once a
month for a nice dinner
and a movie. We found a
way to save a little and
give a lot! We have started
.reading our local paper for.
community fundraisers.
Now instead of heading to
.a private night, we go to
community auctions,
spaghetti feeds, bingo, etc.
once a month. Wemay not
have any connection to
the fundraiser, but we al-,
ways have a ball And we

Kids Off School?*,Miss-
ing Work?

A money-saving strate-
gy that I use is trading
babysitting during school
breaks. A friend of mine.
will have my kids over to
her house to play with her
own kids for the day
while I go to work. I have .
her kids over to my house
k on a different day. By do-
ing this, school days off
are covered. We both have
to take fewer days off
S from work, burn less va-
cation time, and pay for
fewer days of babysitting;
We are happy, the kids are
happy, and our bosses and
coworkers are happy. It is
a Win-win situation for
everyone.

Coffee Time

SMy little luxury is buy-
ing a big magazine (at the
thrift shop or even at the
store) and savoring every
page while drinking a cup
b of coffee. It feels ab-
solutely decadent to sit
back and read in the mid--
die of the afternoon, with
no demands on my time.
Feels like. a mini-vacation,
but much more affordable!

'Mother's Day Gift Idea,

This is a great idea for a
Mother's Day gift for
those who are still in their
.own home. I used to get
my mom a nice hanging
basket she could enjoy for
a few months. It'only
needed watering and then
she could just pitch it in
the fall if she wanted. An-
other option is take an ex-
isting planter/corner of
her garden and fill it with
nice flowers.

Swap Party

Instead of having a


clothes swap party, why
not have an'
accessory/product swap
party. Swap those things
that came free with your
favorite shampoo or the
costume jewelry that has
just lost its shine to you.
.Others just may love it!
And they may have some-
thing you would like as
well. Make the evening
cheap with bling your
own snacks and serve
tea/coffee after the swap.

the following. I go to a
search engine and type in
the appliance name and
the symptoms.- Sometimes
I find that it is a, common
problem and'people offer
simple instructions on
how to fix it. In some
cases, it is a simple ad-
justment. You just need to
ktiow where to find the
screw to tighten or the
panel to take off and
clean behind. Other times,
I find that I can fix it by
replacing a part, costing
less than $50.
Many times, detailed
instructions are included
on where to order the part
and how:to install it. I
also find at times that it is
a complex problem that
costs more to fix than to
replace the item. Or it is a
complicated or delicate


repair that requires an ex-

Helping Hands

My sister and I do a
swap that we call "work
weekends." One Saturday
in the spring, we get to-
gether at one house and
work on a to-do list, and
then on another weekend,
we go to the other per-

We have washed win-
dows, power washed the
house, re-stacked the fire-
wood, edged flowerbeds,
put down five yards-of
mulch, and painted shut-

person's home where we
are working is responsible
for feeding everyone for

was using until 1 was at a
friend's one day and no-
ticed she had an "oil driz-
zler bottle" sitting by her
sink with dish soap in it. I
liked how it looked, so I
bought myself one for a
couple of dollars and
filled it with dish soap.
Much to my surprise, I
learned, it takes. very little
soap to get the result I
need to wash the dishes!
Ordinarily, I would have
squeezed the plastic bottle
two to three times. That's
a lot of soap! Now, I driz-
zle the soap in as the wa-
ter is running, and I've
been amazed how much
dish soap I save in the
process! The bonus is that
it looks cute sitting by the
sink!

Men's health sc
Many women feel that they can't give a man directions. Maybe it's the
stubborn tendency of miles, or maybe it's that they don't like to be told what
to do. It comes as no surprise, then, that it's difficult to get most men to go to
the doctor. Maybe they don't want to talk about their health problems.
Perhaps they feel normal and don't see a need to make an appointment. Or it
could be because they don't want to hear that anything is wrong with them.
Whatever the case may be, it's important that men get regular health
screening tests. Catching problems early on, can often help prevent them
from turning into something more serious down the road.
Below are some guidelines on men's screening tests. If you are a man
reading this. talk to your doctor about when he thinks you should schedule
these exams, as test frequency, varies based on sour age. your.health history
and your family's health history.
BODY MEASUREMENTS
Taking your height, weight and body-mass index BMI) helps determine
whether your are overweight. Overweight people are more likely to have
high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes. BMI is assessed using a
mathematical form of weight and height.
BLOOD PRESSURE
A blood-pressure test is the only way to determine if you have high blood
pressure. If undetected and untreated, it can increase your risk of heart
attack, stroke, heart failure and kidney failure. According to the American
Heart Association, you should get it checked at least once every two years --
and more often if your doctor says it's high.
CHOLESTEROL TEST
A blood testis used to determine your good (HDL) and bad (LDL)
cholesterol levels. According to the AHA, cholesterol is a soft, waxy
substance found among the lipids (fats) in the bloodstream and in all your
body's cells. Humans need cholesterol, but a high level increases your risk of
heart disease and stroke. Men age 20 years or older should have their
cholesterol checked every five years and more frequently as they age or if
they have high cholesterol levels.
COLORECTAL CANCER SCREENING
This screening uses various tests to examine the colon for polyps that may
become cancerous or to find colon cancer before s. Imptoms occur. Men 50 or
older should talk to their doctor about which tests are right for them and
when to have them done.
PROSTATE CANCER SCREENING TEST
Prostate cancer is detected through a blood test that determines the amount
of prostate-specific antigen (PDA) in your blood, or through a digital rectal
exam (DRE) where a doctor inserts his lubricated, gloved finger into the
..rectum to examine the prostate gland for any irreguluaities. The American
Cancer Society suggests that men get tested for prostate cancer every year,
starting at age 50.


reening checklist


Routine healthcare checkups can help doctors spot
can be treated before they become more serious.


TESTICULAR EXAM
This test examines the testicles for enlargement, swelling or a lump.
Doctors usually check for this at your physical exam, especially if you tell
them that you've noticed a change in your testicles or are between the ages of,
15 and 40.
SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASE TESTS
These tests determine if you have a sexually transmitted disease (STDs)
like syphilis, chlamydia or HIV/AIDS. Your doctor will determined which
tests you should get based on risk factors and sexual history.
DENTAL EXAM
During this exam, a dentist will examine your teeth and gums for cavities
or oral cancer. The American Dental Association recommends that you go
once or twice a year for a checkup and cleaning.
EYE. EXAA
Eye exams assess if you need your vision corrected by either wearing
prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. They also identify existing vision
problems like glaucoma or cataracts. Eye experts suggest that you get your.
eyes checked by an eye-care professional every year.
HEARING TEST
A hearing test gauges your speech and sound recognition at various levels.
Ask your doctor how often you should get your hearing tested.

'Plains' ol'



Jimmy



Carter talks



about small



town appeal

"'have always lived in
Plains, I was born here and
my wife was born here. Our
ancestors have lived here
since 1833," Carter said,
smiling, "so, we haven't
gotten very far in life."

By Becky Holland
CNHINews Service

PLAINS, Ga. During the morning
hodtrs Saturday, downtown business
owners prepared for a busy day before the .
Shortline Excursion Train arrived with
tourists..
In the middle of this, he slipped through
the front doors of the Plains Antique Mall
and Historic Inn, dressed in a suit,
reminiscent of a grandfather heading to
church.
Actually, he is a grandfather and he
would be heading to Winston-Salem,
N.., later that day to a church meeting of
sorts.
.Ie is a big part of the reason that
tourists come to Plains.
Yet, as he strolled through the door, his
smile was genuine, the grasp of his hand
was firm, and his mannerisms were warm,
nmking one feel instantly at'ease.
.Jimmy Carter may be the 39th
President of the United States, but to the
people of the community, he is just,
Plans' ol' Jimmy Carter.
And he likes, that. "
Carter sat comfortably in oneof the, ,
lei er chairs of the sitting area of the
Anique Mall, and noticed the tape
re'ebrder on the table beside him, "Good,
yd6 are going to be taping this. Though I
like to take notes, it is good to have
something to fall back on."
settlingg back into the chair, Carter
reflected on the appeal of Plains, and
upon being asked what song on his iPod
Ivotild best describe Plains, answered, "TI
think a lot of Willie Nelson's music
describes Plains.
"He is one of my favorites and I have
had;the opportunity of going on stage
with him several times to help sing the
last song, which is not very good for my
voice," Carter paused, with a slight smile,
"ahd usually, we end up singing
'Amazing Grace.' Also, I think.his
general selection of songs are some that
the people of Plains would like."
-Though Carter had the choice to live in
other areas after he left the White House,
hand his wife Rosalynn decided to stay
in Plains.
S"I have always lived in Plains, I was
born here and my wife was born here.,
Our ancestors have lived here since
1833," Carter said, smiling, "so, we.
haven't gotten very far in life.
,"We're still in the same place we
started. When I was four years old; I lived
next door to my wife, my future wife. She
vas one at the time. So, when we left the
.Navy, we came back to Plains and when
we left the Governior's Mansion, we came
back to Plains. When we left the White
I-use, we came back. It is just home.
tOur church is here, our friends are
heIr, my land is here, our members are
here. This is kind of a haven for us."
1i spite of his family history and
c i{ection to the community, Carter said
ti4emnost appealing part of the small town
isr "the harmony in which we relate to
e4ch other. I believe we have about 60


Percent African Americans and 40 percent
whites, but we don't pay attention to the
r cial distinctions.
"We work side by side in harmony with
e4ch other. We have a very strong
committee of about 15 people who take
c4re of the future of Plains, and I think
ttat is a matter of people thinking about
P ains, that we live here, and we are all
li e one big family. There is no prejudice
h re, no racial distinction, and we live in
h rmony: We go to different churches, but
S do visit each other's churches. We are
st close."
Another main attraction of Plains has
ben the historical homes in the
community, including the "haunted
house once owned by Dr. Thad Wise,
E"T

President Jimmy Carter enjoys the easy-going, small town charm of Plains. He said he hopes it never changes.

and recently donated to the, Better
Hometown Committee by Blake Sullivan.
Carter and his family lived in the house at
one time.
"I had always heard of the haunted
house, and as a boy, had lived next door
to the house and the cemetery, so it was
almost out of the question for us children
to walk down U.S. 280, by the cemetery
and the haunted house after dark, so I
would walk down the railroad track to
avoid.the haunted house," Carter said.
"And there were numerous reports of a
woman in the upstairs rooms, with a long
white dress on, with a lantern, walking
around. We didn't have electricity in
those days," Carter explained, "and the
general atmosphere of the place:was
always very sobering. I wouldn't say
scary.
"I wouldn't say melancholy, but it was
like it just wanted to be by itself. It didn't
have a welcoming feel to it for children
and others to intrude on the property."
Carter continued, "When we were in
the Navy, I was friends with Sonny
Faircloth, who lived there for a time. I
remember one tale he told, and I wouldn't
say that it was a lie. We would hunt coons
with him, and he told us on a hunt one
night that he would look out the window
and see a black dog out in the yard,.and
the dog wasn't his. One night, he went out
and the dog was.near the porch, and he
decided to walk down the back steps, and
the dog didn't snarl, or anything; it was a
friendly dog.
"Finally, he walked up close to the dog,
and put his hand down to pet the dog, and
the dog wasn't there." Carter's eyes
widened with.an awed expression.
"It was just an image of a dog," Carter
paused, "I had a personal experience out
there again, when I was a young man and
had come back from the Navy. Thad Wise
lived out there for a while. He was the
Head of the medical society here. And his
nurse, Ms. Abrams, who also happened to
be my godmother, and, when Dr. Thad
was seriously ill, I went out to stay one
night at her request to stay with her
because she needed some help.
"I hadn't had any supper when I got
there, because I had been working in the
field. So, she was in the kitchen next to
the big bedroom where Dr. Thad was
lying, and she was cooking me some


supper."
Carter paused, "I remember, she used to
punch a hole in the center of a big slice of
bread, and she would break an egg and
fry it in there on both sides, and it was
delicious."
He continued, "All of a sudden, we
heard a strange, horrible sound from the
yard that I had never heard before, except
on television with wolves and coyotes
howling. We looked out the window, and
saw all of the dogs sitting on their
haunches, looking at the sky, and they
were wailing in a surreal tone. I had never
heard anything like that. We went and
checked on Dr. Thad, and he had-just
died.
"Those dogs, and they were his dogs,
knew that Dr. Thad's spirit had just left. I
was very concerned about it. I was a little
nervous. I was a grown man and had been
in a submarine before, so I wouldn't say I
was afraid, but it was a sobering
experience." '-
Carter recalled moving into the house
after Wise died, and raising his family
there. His sons discovered a hidden room
in the attic, of which Carter and his wife
had "surmised, Rosalynn did, she is
interested in mental health, that the
woman we had seen was mentally ill;and
maybe the room was probably where the
lady had been hidden."
Pausing, Carter said, "I think it is better
when talking about a haunted house to not
.. try to explain things too thoroughly."
Of the Plains Better Hometown
Committee's desire to renovate the house,
Carter was very much agreeable. In fact,
said the former President, "I have had my
eye on the house for, oh,.10 years or so.
Blake Sullivan owned it, and he rented
the house to some folks who had not
taken care of it, and he built a fence
around it and just abandoned it and he
was considering moving the house to
Westville. I had tried to convince him to
give it to us, and he finally did last year."
Another favorite spot of Carter's in
Plains is the Plains Historic Inn. "All of
this used to belong to my uncle, my
daddy's only brother, and at the time it
was the Plains Mercantile, and when he
died, my cousin inherited it, and when my
cousin died, I made arrangements to have
it given to the committee. When that
finally happened, I volunteered to help


with the construction.
"At the time, I had a trip planned to
Africa, a long trip, but I had to cancel the'
trip, because that was when President
Bush Sr., decided to invade Iraq, and I
was going into a lot of Muslim countries,
so I had to cancel, the trip. I volunteered
to do the work, well, to supervise, and so
I was in charge of the reconditioning it,
the outside the brick, the inside, putting in
floors, putting in the booths, and we
didn't have any rooms upstairs, and that
was, all just two big rooms, like this and
we did all the work.
"I asked Rosalynn to be in charge of the
decorations and they decided to make the
seven suites dedicated to one decade of
my life."

It was at that point in the interview that
his wife Rosalynn surprised him by
walking through the front doors.
She had stopped in for a moment to say
hello as she was on her way to do a quick
errand. Carter held his wife's hand, as she
stood by and explained, We take
groceries to people in the area from our
church every month and we had someone
make 30 loaves of banana bread for us to
take, so we're going to stop down there
and say thank you."
Jimmy Carter asked, "You're going to
save one, aren't you?"
She looked at her husband, and said,
"Yes, she made one for us."
'That's good. That's my favorite," he
said.
"They were little loaves, and it was
really sweet of her. We got through
because we split up in two groups, so we
thought we would stop by and tell her
thank you," she said.
After watching his wife leave the store,
Carter pondered on how to describe
Plains, and then said, "Hospitality and
unchanging. What people like to see is a
town the way it was in the 1930s. We try
not to change anything. We would like to
see that everyone who comes here would
feel welcome."
And Plains' Jimmy Carter left the
building with a smile, a thank you and a
wave of the hand, telling those close by,
"See you soon."
