 Notes
Review: The Suwannee Democrat LCCN: sn95026787 is one of the oldest continuously published weeklies in the State of Florida. It began publishing in 1884 in the city of Live Oak (FL). Noting the shifting demographics of Florida in the 20th century, in 1906, one observes that Live Oak was the fifth largest city in Florida, preceded only by Jacksonville, Pensacola, Tampa, and Key West. The Suwannee Democrat enjoyed a corresponding reputation as a journalistic leader in early 20th century Florida. For approximately two years, from 1906 through 1907, the weekly Suwannee Democrat was supplemented by the Live Oak (FL) Daily Democrat LCCN: sn95026788. The Suwannee Democrat has won numerous awards from the Florida Press Association, both as in the weekly category and for the quality of its agricultural reporting. In its early days, the Suwannee Democrat reported a Democrat Party affiliation. The newspaper's first editor hid under an assumed name when he was suspected of murder. A deathbed confession by the actual perpetrator allowed him to resume his true identity: F.R. McCormack. Very little else, however, is known of F.R. McCormack. Fires have taken their toll on the Suwannee Democrat. In 1906, a disgruntled printer left by railroad on the night that its offices burned to the ground. Arson again in October 1995, destroyed a historic block of Live Oak's downtown and the newspaper's office was one of the casualties. Lost in the fire were last-known issues of the Suwannee Democrat dating from 1897 through 1900. The issues had just been scheduled for preservation microfilming under the auspices of the U.S. Newspaper Program, when they were destroyed. The event was bitterly regretted and served to show the precariousness of local newspaper archives. Live Oak is the seat of Suwannee County (FL) government. Suwannee County is surrounded on three sides by the Suwannee River. And, its karst topography gives the area an abundance of natural springs and fresh water. Industries of the region, particularly during the early days of the Suwannee Democrat, were lumber, turpentine and cotton. Live Oak was known for its grist and lumber mills. The character of these industries and the regional economy survived through the 1920s, when economic down-turn resulted in change. Change was already being seen as early as 1910, when the poultry underwent industrialization in the county. Poultry took such a strong foothold in Suwannee County that even front yards were cultivated for the production of feed grains. Agriculture and other land-based industries, particularly forestry and related industries, were also seeing change with the establishment of nurseries supplying hybrid bulbs and plants to markets. The Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression brought change and growth to a halt. With recovery, the region became semi-rural. Florida's demographic shifts, both that following World War II and the completion of the Interstate Highway System initiated by Governor Bryant in the 1960s, have marked a trend of increasing urbanization in Suwannee County.--E.

EXTENSION UPDATE


Sustaining small



farms, strengthening



Florida's communities �


A
'I

A


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

Interested in exploring new alternatives
for your farming operation or looking for
new markets? Are you seeking changes in
regulations that support local agriculture
and willing to learn from others that have
been successful when venturing into new
agricultural enterprises?
I would like to take this opportunity to
encourage all Suwannee County residents
with an interest in farming to consider
attending the Small Farms and Alternative
Enterprises Conference that will take
place in Kissimmee on August 1-2. This
will be a unique opportunity to explore a
wide array of production systems and
marketing channels for agricultural
products. This is the first time the
Extension Service in Florida is able to
organize an event that will cover from
horticultural crops to livestock all in one
place while outlining a variety of
production methods under which these
products can be grown. Furthermore,
there will be numerous sessions were you
will be able to hear other\farmers who
have ventured into new agricultural
enterprises talk about their experiences
and challenges. Their advice may save
you thousands of dollars and may set
realistic expectations if you are planning
to start or transition into a similar venue.
In addition, a tradeshow were you will be
able to meet many of the equipment and
input suppliers will be part of the
conference.
As an extension agent, I get asked too
often what can, I do with the land I bought
and "make money". Usually most get
discouraged after learning the initial
investment needed and the hard work
farming entails. But as the old saying
reads "were there'sa will there is a way" I
have been pleasantly surprised to find -
more and more, that if you have a passion
for farming, work hard and are patient rou


can be a full-time farmer. In many ways,
farming in small scale is nothing new, a
recognized supporter of agriculture in this
county raised his family by selling
produce he got off his five acres and
selling part of it at a roadside stand. These
days you don't have to rely on a roadside
stand exclusively, there are new farmers
markets in North Florida that literally
have thousands of visitors every week
looking for fresh, local produce and food.
This is just one example of new marketing
opportunities for farmers that have
recently surfaced.
On the other hand, our farming
community is slowly feeling the pressure
to explore new markets or production
systems. Despite its name this conference
is not exclusive for small farmers since it
will cover a vast array of alternative
enterprises that have been successful in
other parts of the country and that can
work in our area. Some farmers may
realize they have the ideal set up and
resources to meet the standards of some
niche markets. Please visit the conference
website at: http://smallfarms.ifas.ufl.edu
and decide to join us for the conference.
The deadline for early registration is June
15. Give yourself the opportunity to
receive the most up to date information
and make contacts with other farmers and
industry that will come handy in the
future.

Workshop topics:
� Livestock: Grass-fed Beef, Pastured
Poultry Production, Health Management,

Hurricane Season is upon us

Hurricane Center has projected 9 -
14 named storms, 4-7 hurricanes,
and 1 - 3 major hurricanes
(Categories 3, 4 or 5) for 2009.


We cannot predict with certainty that we will receive
c tastrophic damages, but the odds are pretty high t
Ne will be impacted to some degree during this per
Let's look at some health and safety tips for prepari
hurricane season.
The majority of injuries during a hurricane-are frc
flying glass or other debris. Other injuries include
puncture wounds resulting from exposed nails, met:
glass, and bone fractures. There has been a large
emphasis placed on having a family disaster plan ai

" is this normal?

A m The evaporator coils on the front of
m the a/c produce water which
normally travels though a drain system to the
back or side of the unit. This drain is probably
plugged and can -cause the water to run
towards the front and leak out. Clean the
drain tube out. If this doesn't fix the problem
give us a call, you probably need to have your
unit checked out by a professional.

Suwannee Democrat


Well done,

Wellborn
Hat4 iof to Wendell Snowden
and company for a fine job stag-
ing the Wellborn Blueberry Festi-
val last weekend.
As president of the Wellborn
Community Association, Snow-
den was festival chairman. But as
he'll be the first to tell you how
much help he had producing the
16th annual extravaganza.
Here's a partial list of those
who contributed their time, effort
and' talent:

Beanie Brooks headed up the
pancake breakfast and solicited
sponsors;
Wayne Brooks is the
groundskeeper supervisor;
Linda Dye handles entertain-
ment and the talent contests;
Kathy Wotton handled chil-
dren's games; /
Ruth Ford and Cathy Allred
handled the bake-off and tasting
party;
Kelcy McBreairty sold raffle
tickets;
Cheryl Osgood and Jackie
Slaughter ran the Country Store;
Bobbi Fenderson ran the pa-
rade;
Kathie Snowden does advertis-
ing;
Christine Williams controls the
checkbook and sets the festival
budget;
. Charles Osgood (in Snowden's
words, the "all-around, repair-
everything man");
George and Bonnie Scott and
Corky Gibbons graciously sup-
plied the blueberries for the Fes-
tival;
plus countless volunteers.

Nice work, each and every one
of you. The Blueberry Festival
, has become a Suwannee County
tradition. There's no better way
to spend the first weekend in
June.

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


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
hotline never closes and is your way to let it out. You can let
everyone know how you feel -- as long as you express yourself
in a respectful way.
Note: In written entries to Rant and Rave, errors in spelling,
grammar or punctuation are those of the authors.
An early prediction. Lots of people will drive golf carts around
the City. Little or none will obtain insurance. Police Department
won't enforce mandatory insurance requirement. Tragic accident
occurs or almost -occurs. City Council rescinds golf cart ordi-
nance.
I continue to be galled every time I see the "fatcats" from City
Hall driving around in the big SUV. I have the perfect solution.
Sell the SUV and buy them a golf cart,
Allowing golf carts on the streets of Live Oak is crazy. How
many serious vehicular accidents do you think this will create? I
have an easy solution to monitor the activity of the golf carts.
Have the Police Department routinely stop them for proof of in-
surance. That will somewhat ease the situation.
Can you please tell me why the City Of Live Oak Code En-
forcement decides that blinking or flashing signs are now a code.
violation? They have the ones with the. flashing arrow all over
town and have been used for years. Unsafe distraction to vehic-
ular or pedestrian traffic??PLEASE GIVE ME A BREAK!
,- . , , ,
not trying to complain but when is the city going to start spay-
ing for mesquite (I'm guess in) when we all look like we came
Sdovn with chicken pox come on we pay are taxes so cant we get
a little some thing out of it because it dang shur ant garbage pick
up and one more thing job well done sheriff for getting all the
drug dealers off the street but there is still a hole'bbunch of other
crimes going on too
Last week there was someone' complaining about the fire de-
partment running lights and sirens to a wreck they fiad in the
public parking lot. I'm sure if they hadn't run lights and sirens
they would have complained because they responded to slow,
and because they had to wait.
I.would just like to say thanks to all the teachers in Suwannee
County for a job well-done this past school year. In a year with
budget cuts and threats of lay offs, etc., I'm sure it wasn't an easy'
year. All of the teachers that my child had were very caring and
accessible and I think that my child learned a lot from each of
you. Enjoy your time off, you deserve it!
I feel really sorry for the sad, lonely person who keeps ranting
week after week about Suwannee County andd the fact that it is a
dry county. I hope they will find friends or a purposein life very
soon. I also am sorry for their one set of friends who came up
here and were going to invest in the county and decided not to
just because they wouldn't be able to have a "drink" with their
dinner. Try some of that good ole southern sweet tea! There are
pleasures in life besides drinking and they are missing out on a
beautiful place to live for all the wrong reasons. Also, I would
like to ask the Democrat to stop running their rants every week.
They just keep saying the same thing over and over and it is time
to stop printing it.
' the introductory italics to RANT&RAVE read ...you.can let
everyone.know how you feel-as long as you express yourself in
a respectful way..'.so, how did the racist "Ba ba black sheep"
comment, June 5, get into print?
Editor's.note: You must know something we don't. In any case,
we did not interpret the comment as a racial slur.


The settlement the school board made is just the tip of the ice-
berg as to how much money the previous administrator spent on
his purges and follies. The sad part is this school b6drd allowed
it to happen. Hundreds of thousands of school dollars were wast-
ed and these 5 people have no trouble telling you what a great job
they have done. Perhaps they need to repeat Economics 10.1.
With all the road and public works construction going on it
would be nice if the LOPD or the SCSO would occasionally
check a sight before someone or something gets run over by a
truck or heavy piece of equipment. /
My councilman Mr. Stewart promised some storm water pro-
jects where I live. When are we going to start, it has been years.
I would like to know when we are going to get full coverage
of our graduation in Branford. I would like pictures of all the stu-
dents. Branford is a part of Suwannee County. Live Oak isn't all
there is to it.
Editor's note: Coverage of Branford High School graduation
activities exceeded that of Suwannee High.
,Thanks for the rain so the wildflowers continue to bloom on
roads 349, 51, 129, 252; they have been mowed next to the roads.
21 years ago we moved here to enjoy the country and we still do.
* This is not a rant or a rave, but I would like to ask the people.
Anyone that has ever paid in to Social Security to call their con-
gressmen, their senators, representatives and demand that the
money that was took out of Social Security be put back in Social
Security before they take any other action on revamping Social
Security. People if you don't stand up and be counted you are fix-
ing to be shoved aside. Also I would like to ask the Democrat to
print the names and phone, numbers of all the state and federal
senators, congressmen, representatives so the people can contact
them. We thank you.
How can someone on a golf cart not be expected to use a seat
belt, but me riding behind him in my vehicle be fined for not us-
ing one?
Callers to 386-208-8314 may express their thoughts, good or
bad, 24/7 about community issues and politics, but not about pri-
vate individuals or businesses. If you prefer, you may email your
comments to nf editorial@gaflnews.com. You don't have to give
your name, and please, keep submissions to less than 45 seconds
(that's about 150 words). We want everybody to have a chance to
be heard. Submissions that are overly long will be discarded. If
45 seconds isn't enough time, write a Letter to the Editor.
(Guidelines for letters appear on Page 6A.)


LETTER TO THE EDITOR
To the Editor:
For all who live in or near the Suwannee River Valley ... we are
neighbors. I have stepped up to become involved and assist with
hopes that our history, artifacts, places and many cherished mem-
ories are not lost or discarded for the sake of progress. Many of
our states' larger cities, in their expansion and. intense develop-
ment have already lost many places of past importance and fond
memories in my lifetime.
I urge and ask ALL to get involved. It does not matter if you are
native born or newcomer, or which community in the area that
you live' Do you have talents and abilities" The Suwannee Coun-
ty Historical Museum has many areas that would like your com-
mitment and participation.... and yes - those of us already work-
ing at the Museum would like your help too!
This is YOUR museum. This is and will continue to be your
county's history, with the lore and artifacts of the region. Your
help is needed to maintain, show and protect the collections so
they may be viewed and enjoyed by everyone now and later by
your children and grandchildren. Please come by and see or the
Museum Director & Curator, Randy Torrance or call 362-1776.

arrested in Mayo

Had been sought by Suwannee,
Columbia County authorities
By Stephenie Livingston
Attempted armed robbery suspect
Steven Edward McGee, 19, of Branford,
was arrested Tuesday in Lafayette Coun-
ty, according to sheriffs reports. McGee,
known by the local sheriffs department
as "white meat," a phrase also tattooed
across his neck, had been sought by Co- Steven Edward
lumbia and Suwannee County authorities . McGee
for some time. He is wanted for attempt-
ed robbery, with a firearm.
McGee was arrested after Lafayette.County sheriffs
deputy Randy Henderson received a tip from Agricultural
Station supervisor Winston Warner that McGee was hiding
out at a house nearby. Henderson soon apprehended McGee
at a family member's home on Appaloosa Road.
According to investigator John Stock of the Lake City
Police Department, McGee is wanted for an attempted
armed robbery that took place on May 21 at 9:30 p.m.
McGee, along with another white male, an African Ameri-
can male, and an African American female, pulled up to the
Marion Street Cafe in Lake City on 281 North Marion Av-
enue in a two door Chevy Cavalier. One male reportedly
displayed a firearm outside the car window, aimed it at a
group of people standing outside the cafe, and proceeded to
demand cash. When the group refused and other bystanders
came to the scene, McGee along with the other suspects
fled. It is not clear who wielded the firearm.'
Moments after the vehicle fled the scene, McGee re-
turned and allegedly admitted to x% imesses that he had been
in the car. He was reportedly heard exclaiming "Se\ en
McGee represents!" said Stock. McGee left the scene again
before police were called. Witnesses were able to identify
him in a photo line up, which lead to the warrant.


Town Council clarifies

rules on burning.
By Stephenie Livingston
* Burning within town limits has been an issue in Bran-
ford for quite, some time. Tuesday night the-town decided to
distribute a flyer explaining Department of Forestry regula-
tions to the public. (See "Tips on burning," this page.)
* The Branford town audit showed no negative findings..
"Branford is in good shape for a small town," said Town
Clerk Donna Hardin. Richard Powell of Powell and Associ-
ates in Lake City said an evaluation of Branford's budget

SEE TOWN COUNCIL, PAGE 9A


Tips on burning:

Check with your local Division of Forestry
office to make sure it is legal to burn in your area.
Remember, it is NOT legal to bum within
Branford city limits.

Make sure you meet the required setbacks.

Don't burn on windy days.

Never leave a fire unattended.

Keep a water hose or shovel handy in case your
fire escapes.

Make sure your smoke does not obstruct
visibility on nearby roads.

.Be sure your fire is completely out before you
leave.

Also, remember that ALL agricultural,
sivicultural, landclearing, pile and acreage
burning require a burning authorization from the
Division of Forestry. Authorization is not
required to burn yard waste as long a you meet
the required setbacks and you do not live in
Branford city limits. Yard waste is vegetative
debris such as grass clippings, brush, leaves, tree
limbs, palm fronds, etc., that are a result of yard
maintenance.

It is illegal to burn household
garbage(including paper products), treated
lumber, plastics, rubber materials, tires, pesticide,


paint and aerosol containers.

Call the Suwannee district Division of Forestry
at 386-758-5700 for more information.

Wainwright Dairy opens

south-county cheese plant


By Barbara Gill

You can add cheese to the list
of locally grown foods now avail-
able for your table.
VWainH right Dairy will begin
selling farm-fresh, all-natural .
cheese and milk on June 16. Of-
ferings include baby Swiss, ched-
dar, Colby, pepper jack and fresh
cheese curds, along with Grade A
pasteurized, non-homogenized
milk with the cream on top.
Carl Wainwright began in the
dairy industry in 1958 working
for Gustafson's in Green Cove
Springs. In the late 60s he and his
wife, Gail, started farming in
Suwannee County. As their fami-
ly grew with nine children, their
dream of a family farm became a
reality.
Cheese seemed like a natural
addition to their dairy for the,
Wainwrights.
"We are a familyfarm and want
to stay that way," said Carl Wain-
wright. "Preserving what God has
given us and making a living on
the land."
To assist with his training, Carl,
Wainwright contracted with one
of the nation's most experienced.
professional cheese makers, El-
dore Hanni of Farmstead Fresh,


Inc., in Winfield, Penn.
Hanni became a licensed Wis-
consin cheesemaker at age 17.
For the next 50 years, he perfect-
ed his art, winning numerous '
awards in the process..
Hanni spent a week at the
Wainwright Dairy, his 31st train-
ing, at age 83. He said the Wain-
wright Dairy's milk was "of ex-
cellent quality."
It truly has become a family
operation from the dairy to the
cheese making and bottling to de-
signing the pictures on their de-
livery truck and labels. Wain-
wright sons James and Roy work
at the dairy, located west of -
MpAlpin, and their daughters
Lisa and Cheryl and their families
help in the cheese plant.
Using fresh milk, the Wain-
wrights make cheese twice week-
ly. Simply stated, cheese is made
- by heating the milk to the proper
temperature, then adding culture,
to determine the flavor and tex-
ture of the cheese. Then an en-
- t-
zyme is added to separate the
curds (solids) and whey (liquid).
(Remember Little Miss Muffet?
She was probably eating what we
call cottage cheese because of its
mild flavor.)
Special forks are used in stir-


ring until the proper acidity level
is achieved. The whey is drained
and then the curds are pressed to
remove excess whey. The curds'
are soft and delicious eaten fresh.
The fresh curds, commonly called
"farmer's cheese," is then salted
and any other flavorings added
then pressed and aged. Aging
generally enhances the flavor but
the fresh squeaky curds are mild
and delicious.
"We should strive to keep
everything as close to.the way
God created it," Carl Wainwright
said. "It is up to us to provide our
customers with the best all natur-
al products and continue being
good stewards of the land. We are
ready to do whatever God has in
store for us."

Wainwright Dairy products will
be available at the following
locations:
B & B Food Store in Wellborn
Howland's Express in Live Oak
Mobley's Custom Cuts in Live
Oak
Scaffs in Branford and Bell
Thriftway in Mayo
And several S & S Food Stores
For more information, call 386-
590-6299 or visit
www. wainwrightdairy. com.


According to the USDA, the average American's consumption
of cheese nearly tripled between 1970 and 2003 from 11
pounds per person to 31 pounds.

(Editor's note: This is the first article in what will be an
ongoing, periodic series on the south-county economy.)
It's no secret that Branford's population has risen in the
past. 10 years, and not just within town limits. The '
outskirts of Branford and areas such as O'Brien and
McAlpin are the fastest growing.
"The Branford area has grown more in the last five to
ten years than in the last 25," noted Joe Cannon, who
spent 36 years on Branford's town council and 30 years as
council president.
That should come as no surprise, as rural communities
like Branford are a great alternative to larger centers such
as Orlando, Gainesville, Jacksonville and Tallahassee.
Young families and retirees from South Florida and the
northeast are also among those seeking a quieter lifestyle.
In recent years many young families have picked up and
moved to small town Branford where bigger houses tend
to cost less, outdoor activities are abundant and the charm
of small town life beckons.,
However, that growth has come to a stop of late.
"There has been tremendous growth in the last five or
six years," noted District 5, County Commissioner Wesley
Wainwright. "However; with the economy the way it is
and the things going on nationally, businesses are scaling
back and growth is at a
stand still."
For example, Suwannee
American Cement
Company in Branford has
been forced to scale back
production and lay off
workers.
Still, Branford has "an
active town council that
wants to see Branford
- grow," said local
businesswoman Shirley
Hatch. The town now also
S. " - ? ' has a revitalization
committee that is working
- -.. towards receiving grants to
r , .improve downtown
SOfRL " .. . Branford and make it more
*-..-r ... ',, inviting to new businesses.
The revitalization project
was started by the local
Rotary Club and is headed
.- by Peggy Maloney. The
.. committee is planning a
, community wide meeting
next month. Jim Beeler, a
. FAMU graduate student,
. will be there to present
enhanced photo of what
downtown Branford could
look like with a little sprucing, up. Branford is "a gem that
hasn't been uncovered yet," said Maloney. "Eventually
developers are going to discover it."
Maloney says they are pushing for industries that will
increase ecotourism, not just another Wal-Mart. With
plans underway for a state park at Little River, Maloney

Surrey Place officials


address Young at Heart


i


By George Petrena

Nancy Martin, administrative and mar-
keting director, Bret Brown, Surrey Place
administrator, and Chaplain Lester Curry
spoke to the Young at Heart at First Bap-
tist Church of Branford recently. They
also provided the lunch catered by Sisters.
"It is a blessing to begin my career at
Surrey Place," said Brown. "We have a
four star building, tops in the nation. We
won awards for resident satisfaction. We
go on trips, shopping to Lake City. Resi-
dents see free movies at 10 o'clock. We
want you to be pleased with our service."


Curry has been chaplain at Surrey Place
for two years.
We are one of a few nursing homes to
have a chaplain on staff," he explained:
"Part of the chaplain program is to minis-
ter to residents. We have morning devo-
tions, service every Wednesday and Sun-
day morning at 11 a.m. church service,
and Sunday School. We had a booth at
Christmas on the Square in Live Oak, and
patients passed out balloons, water and
,hot chocolate. We have heart to heart min-
istries."
Everyone in attendance reported having
a good time.

needed for Branford

River Reunion
The Branford River Reunion is
looking for craft and art vendors
for the Fourth of July Celebra-
tion in Branford.
The events of the day begin at
9:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 4 and
continue throughout the day,
concluding with the fireworks at,
dusk.
There.is still plenty of space
available. The deadline to apply
is Saturday. For more informa-
tion contact Peggy at 386-935-
0021.


Harmony in

the Streets

Sheriff Tony Cameron, the sheriffs office
and the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches will
sponsor the Harmony in the Streets camp
again in Branford. The camp will be an action-
packed, fun-filled fi\e-day event and will take-
place at the high school gym in Branford from
July 6-10. The camp is for children ages 6-12
and will include arts, crafts, water activities,
team sports, workshops, environmental educa-
tion and law enforcement demonstrations.

County Sheriffs Office at 386-208-8693 for
more information and an application. Xll appli-
cations must be returned to Maxwell by June
26.


A place to go, not a



place to go through


Continued From Page 8A

says Branford is becoming
a hub for outdoorists.
"We need to capitalize on
this; but do it in a way that
will protect our 'natural
resources," said Maloney.
However, Maloney says
the revitalization
committee cannot apply for
state grants. They need
town council to do that. So
far they have the support of
two council members and
hope to gain more support
after the countywide
meeting.
"We want to see the
community improve. We
just need the political-will
to do it," said Maloney. "If
we put public dollars into
landscaping and sprucing
up, private dollars will
follow." According to the
revitalization committee,
Branford is currently "a
place to go through, and


not a place to go." They
want to make it a place
people will be excited to
visit.
Town Council President
Shirley Clark says she's for
the "right change at the
right time." Although she
and town council members
would love to see the
town's appearance


improve, the council first '
"must take care of the
essentials to life," such as
paving roads, she said.
Clark says that
financially the town is,
doing well and she doesn't
want that to change by
spending money on
improvements that are not
vital.

drinking!,_ water lor the
Jleanest, clearest L after
available) for 15 minutes.
* Air dry cans or retort
pouches for a minimum of
1 hour before opening or .

* WAsh countertops with
soap and water. Rinse and

If you will be without
power for a long period,
try to store your frozen
foods at friends houses,
churches, etc. that have
electricity. Your
refrigerator will keep
foods cool for about four
hours if it is unopened.
You can add block or dry
ice to your refrigerator if
the electricity will be off
longer than four hours.
Thawed food can usually
be eaten if it is still
"refrigerator cold," or
refrozen if it still contains
ice crystals. When in
doubt, throw it out.
Discard any food that has
been at room temperature
for two or more hours, and
any food that has an usual
odor, color or texture.
It is also critical that you
remember to practice basic
hygiene during the
emergency period. Always


wash your hands with soap
and water that has been
boiled or disinfected:
* Before preparing food
or eating
* After toilet use
* After participating in
cleanup activities, and
* After handling articles
contaminated with flood
water or sewage.
Outbreaks of
communicable diseases
after hurricanes are
unusual. However, the
rates of diseases that were
present before a hurricane
may increase because of a
lack of sanitation or
overcrowding in shelters.
If you have wounds, you
should be evaluated for a
tetanus immunization. If
you receive a puncture or a
wound contaminated with
feces, soil or saliva, a
Hepatitis A immunization
may be in order. Specific
recommendations for
vaccinations should be
made on a case-by-case
basis or as determined b.

Department :ai SLatjie ,M
Department of Health.
SRain and flooding in a
hurricane area may lead to
an increase in mosquitoes.
Mosquitoes are most
active at sunrise and
.sunset; however, they are
active at other times of the
day", especially around
standing water. In most
cases, mosquitoes will be
pests but will not carry
communicable diseases.
To protect you from
mosquitoes, use screens on
dwellings, and wear
clothes with long sleeves
and long pants. Insect
repellants that contain
DEET are very effective.
Be sure to read all
instructions before using
DEET, especially when
using on small children.
The days and weeks
following a hurricane may
be rough. In addition to
your physical health, you
need to take time to
consider your mental
health as well. Some
sleeplessness, anxiety,
anger, hyperactivity, mild
depression, or lethargy are
normal and may go away
with time. If you feel any
of these symptoms acutely,
seek counseling. Children
need extra care and
attention before, during
and after the storm. Be
sure to locate a favorite toy
or game before the storm
arrives to help maintain
his/her sense of security.
Should you need
assistance, your local
County Health Department
will help you find the
resources, including
hospitals or health care -
providers that you may
need.
For additional
information, please
contact Suwannee County
Health Department at 386-
362-2708, Lafayette
County Health Department
at 386-294-1321 or the
local county health
department nearest to your

Quarry proposal draws fire

cated near 256th Street and
SR 247. The company
went before the county
zoning board a couple of
weeks ago to discuss the
use of the land. The zoning
board issued a unanimous
recommendation against
the project.
Tom Matthews, who
lives next to the proposed
mining site, said he is wor-
ried about his property val-
ue and what effect the pro-
posed quarry might have
on the aquifer and bodies
of water in the area.
"We all see the air, noise
and traffic pollution and
the ugliness of the existing
mining operations on US
27," Matthews said by
e-mail. "The impact on land
values, tourism and the tax
base for the county will be
impacted. ... nothing about
this application has any-
thing to do with preserving
the county's natural re-
sources or benefiting the
citizens. It is all about the
seller and buyer of the
property."
Carla Ford owns a home
in front of the proposed
mine.
"I'm pretty upset about
it," Ford said by phone
Wednesday. "We have a
son that's autistic and the
blasting will be detrimen-
tal to him."
Williams said a mine ex-
isted there .about 30-40
years ago and.doesn't see a
problem with future min-
ing.


"I understand why some
are concerned," Williams
said Wednesday. "It would
be on the very back part of
the property. I think tech-
niques used today are great-
ly improved. I don't see it
as a big problem."
Williams said lime rock


from past mining was used
to construct US 27 in Bran-
ford and portions of 1-75.
A public hearing will be
held at the June 16 county
commission meeting to dis-
cuss the matter. It is sched-
uled for 7 p.m. at City Hall
in Live Oak.

Burglary ring busted


Continued From Page 1A

Cameron said jewelry,
firearms and money were
taken from three homes
along US 129 South be-
tween Live Oak and
McAlpin, three in
McAlpin. and one in Lu-
raville.
Arrested and booked
into the Dixie County jail
were Michael Christopher
Hackle, 27; Cody Eugene
Pridgeon, 23; Dwayne
Mertz, 38; and Allen Lynn
Thomson, 36.
Cameron said his office


helped in the investigation
of break-ins in Suwannee,
Columbia, Lafayette, Tay-
lor, Dixie, Gilchrist, Levy,
Madison and possibly
Hamilton counties.
"It's sad when you have
a situation where men be-
come involved in thefts of
this magnitude and enter
and violate homes which
could number more than
100," said Cameron.
� Authorities believe
Pridgeon and Hackle, who
have been charged with
burglary and grand theft,
broke into the homes, then


sold the stolen goods to
Mertz and Thomson, who
stand accused of dealing
in stolen property.
Cameron said arrest
warrants are being pre-
pared now for Hackle and
Pridgeon, who will be
charged with burglary. In
instances in which
firearms were taken the
men will be charged with
burglary while armed, he
said.
Authorities say the in-
vestigation is ongoing
with additional charges
and arrests expected.


Confusion surrounds city vote


Continued From Page 1A


Council President John Hale said he was
just following the direction of councilman
Bennie Thomas, who had called for a vote.
"When the question is called then 'that
indicates an immediate vote," Hale said
Wednesday. "But I let her (Williams) go
ahead.and finish her statement."
The vote was originally recorded as,5-0
in favor of the ordinance. That came as a
surprise to Councilman Ken Duce, who
opposed the measure.
Duce, who said he wasn't even aware a
vote had taken place, asked that the count
be changed to 4-1.
"I didn't hear the call for the vote," said
Duce Wednesday.
Hale said when the vote was called he
saw Duce indicate with his index finger in
favor of the ordinance. When Duce spoke
up, the record: was changed to reflect
Duce's opposition.
"The change in count was corrected to
sh6w a no vote," Hale said Wednesday.
"No one was meant to be left out when the
vote was called for."
Some of those in the audience were un-
aware of the vote until the council was
questioned on the matter by members of
the local media.
"It appears the decision was already.
made before this started tonight anyway,"
local resident Wendell Hill told the council
after the vote.
Golf carts may not be used on state roads
or highways, including Ohio Avenue and
Howard Street inside city limits. Carts may
only be driven on city streets with posted
speeds of 25 miles per hour or less. The
cart must be insured and drivers must car-


ry a valid driver's license.
The ordinance had required carts to have
seat belts. The council struck down that re-
quirement, however, against the advice of
Sellers.
Sellers said it was his understanding that
state law requires seat belts in all, motor-
ized vehicles driven on public roads. He
also questioned the wisdom of not having
them.
"If any vehicle needs a seat belt a golf
cart does," said Sellers. "But if the council
so desires to take that out, so be it. I don't
vote."
Duce said the ordinance will cause noth-
ing but problems.
"I think it's wrong, I think the city's not
ready for this because we don't have the fa-
cilities for it," he said Wednesday.
Williams said her concern is the enforce-"
ment of the ordinance.
"The police do not have enough time to-
deal with this," she told the council.
The second and final reading of the ordi-
nance preceded the council's vote.

which contained $215. Williams said the
victim suffered a minor head injury and
was treated at the scene.
The suspect is described as tall, thin
black, male approximately 35 years of
age.

robbery you are asked to please call the

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Favre: Point-counterpoint


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels

Well if it isn't steroids /
in the world d of sporting
ne\ s it must be a Brett /
Favre sighting Why has
this guN brought such
attention? By all appearances he seems
to be a laid back guy with just enough
ego not to be obnoxious. Brett FaTre
was a great quarterback. The greatest
of all time? Not even in the ballpark.
Elw ay. Montana, Young. Manning,
Marino. just to name a few, were
better. The best Packer quarterback of
all time, absolutely, with apologies to
Bart Starr. This is where the problem
lies.
Way back in the 60s, when you had
to get up to change the channel, the
Packers, Yankees and Celtics were
kings of their respective sports.
Dynasties, they were called. Jerry
Kramer and Willie Wood and Bart
Starr they would never be anything but
Packers. Mantle not wearing
pinstripes? Unheard of. Bill Russell or
Hondo not playing in Beantown? It
just couldn't happen. Nowadays it


happens all the time. Packer fans don't
want to root against Brett Favre, they)
want him to be a Packer forever. Green
Bay is w here you made your legend,
set your records, achieved your
immortality. To become a Viking is
tantamount to a papal conversion.
Cheeseheads from coast to coast want
Brett retired.
On the other hand. How many times
did Michael Jordan retire? Sugar Ray,
pick one, Ai. Foreman. Clemens. Wh)
can't Favre change his mind? This gu)
has more money then he could spend
in 10 lifetimes. It is not about the
money. This is not golf, where you can
play forever and then the Senior Tour.
NFL football is finite. Most players
don't make four years. This guy loves
the game. He ain't as good as he once
was, but he could be good once as he
ever was. At least enough to give the
Vikings (0-4) a chance to lose another
Super Bowl. If Brett wants to play let
him. Johnny Unitas retired a Charger,
Namath a Ram, Montana a Chief,
Elway a Millionaire. Everyone got
over it. Babe Ruth ended as a Boston
Brave but he will always be a Yankee.
Favre will always be a Packer in the
land of Cheese and Honey and Beer.

Running for Penny's

' Beachville Advent Christian Church Pastor
Bruce Arnold ran 11 miles for the Penny Crusade
on the Branford Greenway May 9.
Penny Crusade is the Advent Christian General
Conference's annual campaign to raise funds for
United Ministries of the Advent Christian Gener-
al Conference. Churches learn about Advent
Christian Missions around the world during an
eight week period, during which offerings are re-
ceived.
Arnold challenged the church to pledge an
amount per mile based on how far they thought he
could run. He planned on running at least 10 miles
and ended up running one extra.
This year the Beachville Advent Christian
Church set a goal to raise $1,000 for Penny Cru-
sade. The run by Pastor Bruce brought in over
$700. Altogether $1,400 was raised. Thanks to all
who gave and prayed for Arnold as he ran.
Arnold's son, Jedidiah rode his bike the entire
11 miles carrying a drink bottle so his dad could
stay hydrated while wife, Evelyn stayed close by
with the van, just in case Bruce needed it. Thanks
Evelyn and Jed.
The church ladies prepared a delicious breakfast
after the run.

"King of Queens" TV
star Kevin James puts an-
other notch in his growing
comedy belt as an
overzealous security guard
who finds himself answer-
.ing the call to become a
hero when a hostage situa-

watch. James shines as a
one-man slapstick show,
and a load of bonus fea-

Warn the Sinner

The first of the spiritual works of
YIELD mercy is to warn or admonish
sinners. However, this is an
extremely difficult thing to do in a
R way that is both caring and
11u non-judgemental. Therefore, we
should deliberate seriously about
how or even whether to carry out
this act of mercy and we should
remember always that it is
intended to be just that, an act of
mercy. We should not be scolding
or standing in judgement, but
rather gently warning a fellow
human being of their peril. One
should enter upon this course of
action with great humility?
recognizing that we may have possibly misjudged the person's
actions or their motives. But, if we are convinced that someone is
sinning and thereby imperiling their soul, we should speak gently to
them, in private if at all possible, using whatever tact and discretion
we can muster. If the person refuses to listen, we should then
consider calling on the help of someone who this person might trust
and listen to. Finally, we should not expect to be thanked or
appreciated for this act of mercy. The recipient of our warning is
likely to think we are being judgmental, intolerant, and "holier than
thou." So, we should make sure that we are none of these things, and
reflect on how we might effectively warn the sinner.

My brethren, if any one among you wanders from the truth
and some one brings him back, let him know that whoever
brings back a sinner from the error of his way will save his
soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.

R.S.V. James 5:19-20

Heart
Matters
By Angie Land
By Angie Land
I hate weeds. After help-
ing my husband in our gar-
den recently, I started
thinking about the evilness
of those blame things..For
example, did you know
that weeds didn't show up
until after Adam and Eve
sinned in the garden? Ac-,
cording to Genesis 1:11-
12, the Bible recalls the
third day of creation:
"Then God said, 'Let the
land produce vegetation:
seed-bearing plants and
trees on the land that bear
fruit with seed in it, ac-
cording to their various
kinds and trees bearing
fruit according to their
kinds.' And ift was so. The
land produced vegetation: "
plants bearing seed accord-
ing to their kinds and trees
bearing fruit with seed in it
according to their kinds.
And God saw that it was
good."
No mention of weeds,_
only fruitful- trees and
plants. However, after
Adam and Eve's sin the
Bible records God's words
of punishment in Genesis
3:17-18:
"Cursed is the ground
because of you; through
painful toil you will eat 'of
it all the days of your life.
It will produce thorns and
thistles for you, and you ,
will eat the plants of the
field."
Sin changes everything.
In this case, it changed
Adam and Atve's environ-
ment from a blessed par-
adise that produced fruit
with minimal effort into a
barren land that sponta-
neously produced weeds
and briers. Fruit now had
to be produced by hard


work and the "sweat of the
brow." Commentator
Matthew Henry notes that
as hard as this punishment
seems, it is really a second
hand curse. God cursed the
serpent directly and He
cursed the ground, but He
did not curse Adam and
Eve. He adds: "This curse
upon the earth, which cut
off all expectations of a
happiness in things below,
* might direct and quicken
him to look for bliss and
satisfaction only in things
above.".
Webster's defines a
weed as "a plant that is not
valued where it is growing
and is usually of vigorous
growth; one that tends to
overgrow or choke out
more desirable plants." In
our own lives, we are wise
.to be on the lookout, be-
cause of the sin-nature
within each of us, we all
have the tendency to spon-
taneously produce weeds.
Anything that is not only
good for nothing, but also
has the inclination to
choke out good things in
our life should be consid-
ered a weed. A few exam-
ples might be watching too
much TV, taking others for
granted, allowing a hobby
to turn into an obsession
and keeping bad company.
No value, and choking out
our satisfaction in God's
blessings, all the while eat-
ing up precious moments
of our life.
A final thought we can
all agree with - get them
while they are small! I'm
the first to kick against
pulling weeds, but putting
it off won't make them dis-
appear...only harder to get
rid of. Let's do a little
weeding and get back to
that abundant life of pro-
ducing fruit, because our
hearts matter!

FRIDAY,.JUNE 12, 2009


Dear Classified Guys,
My friend Mary and I met in the hos-
pital when we were giving birth to
our sons. Since then we've remained
close friends for almost ten years.
When she moved away a few years
ago, we continued our friendship by
talking on the telephone and sending
birthday gifts to each other's chil-
dren. I try to send presents that her
kids would enjoy and even call to ask
what they might like. Mary, on the
other hand, has a different view. One
year she gave my son a computer
game that must have been from a
yard sale. It was so outdated
(Windows 3.1) that he couldn't use it.
The next year's toy still had a yard
sale price sticker on it. Last year I

even giving a used gift if "
it's appropriate. However,
Mary seems to have lost her'
taste. I can't decide if I should try to
tell her about the problem or just
continue to intercept her packages..

Cash: . me people have.the "gift
for gifting" and can pick out the perfect
present for just about anyone. For


others though, choosing a gift can be a
difficult task.
Carry: In your friend's case, there
could be any number of reasons for her
gift choices. It could be budget relat-
ed, she could just have bad taste, or
most likely she probably doesn't know
much about your son's interests.
Although the two of you talk occasion-
ally, she may not pick up on the hints
or have a true picture of what your son
enjoys.
Cash: Since you've chosen to send
gifts to each other's children, consider
giving her a list well ahead of time on
gift ideas your son may enjoy. It would


not only give her some ideas, but.also
.allow her enough time to find them at
yard sales at a good price if she chooses.
Carry: You should encourage her to
make a list for you as well. That way
she'll feel like it's an even trade, plus
you'll have a better idea of things that
her son would enjoy.
Cash: You could also add gift cer-,
tificates to your list, maybe to a toy
store or to your son's favorite place to
eat. Then you won't have to worry
about the gift at all.
Carry: And remember that regard-
less of the gift he receives, teach your
son that it's the thought that counts.

Say You Care
No present is complete without a
greeting card, which is why consumers
purchase more than 7 billion of them
each year, spending more than 7.5 bil-
lion dollars. Women lead the way pur-
chasing almost 80% of all the greeting
cards. Typically, each of us receive
nearly 20 greeting cards every year,
about 7 of them related to our birthday.
With so many cards being exchanged,
.it's not surprising that there are more
than 3000 greeting card publisher's in
the U.S. from small family-run busi-
nesses to large corporations.
Totally Gifted
Finding the perfect gift can be a chal-
lenge, but a gift card can often solve the
problem. It's estimated that people
spend more than 35 billion dollars
every year on gift cards. Nearly 81%
of all consumers purchase them for
birthdays and about 67% for the holi-
days. But watch out, each state has dif-
ferent regulations for gift cards. For
example, in Connecticut they have, no
expiration 'dates and no fees. However
in Ohio, gift cards can expire within
two years, and in Arizona the issuer can
set their own'expiration dates and fees.

Young Again
I wanted to make my wife's 40th
birthday special and asked her what
she'd like most. "Well," she told me,
"I'd love to be 10 again."
That gave me the perfect idea of
putting together a day of activities
for us as if we were kids. That
Saturday we went out for her favorite
childhood breakfast of chocolate
chip pancakes. On the way home,
we played on the playground and got
dizzy riding on the merry-go-round..
We finished the day with a trip to the
ice cream parlor. As we sat there
sharing a banana split, I asked if she
had enjoyed being a kid for a day.-
"I've had a great time," she
replied, "but when I said I wanted to
be 10 again, I meant my dress size."
(Thanks to Sebastian E.)

Something as simple as drying clothes outside on a clothesline is one way to make a positive impact on the environment during the warmer summer months.


Summer is synonymous with many
things, such as vacations, backyard
barbecues and soaking up the sun. '
While those have long been
summertime traditions, summer can
also be a great time to start living a
more environmentally conscious
lifestyle. And many of these lifestyle
adjustments are easy to make,
especially during the warmer months
of the year.
* Let nature dry your clothes.
Clothes dryers need substantial
amounts of energy to operate.
Homeowners can greatly reduce their
carbon footprint, however, by choosing
to dry their clothes outdoors on a
clothesline during summer months.
* Install solar lights around your
property. Another way to save energy,
and money, around the house this
summer is to install solar garden lights
around the property. Such lights are
typically inexpensive, and the daytime
sunlight will power them through the
night, saving energy and money.
* Cover the pool. Few things are
more enjoyable come summertime
than taking a dip in the backyard pool.
While pools are not typically seen as
environmentally friendly, covering the


rO I
pool can make it much more beneficial-
to the environment. That's because a
cover will keep water from
evaporating, meaning you'll fill the
pool far less often. And a pool cover
will keep the heat in the pool, reducing
your heating costs in the process.
* Change the bulbs. Energy-saving
light bulbs inside the house can make
your home more comfortable once the
temperatures heat up. Energy-saving
bulbs emit less heat and also last much
longer than their traditional


'eed


counterparts.
* Change your barbecue routine.
Backyard barbecues are a staple of
summertime for families across the
country. However, these gatherings can
often prove unfriendly to the
environment. Rather than using paper
plates or napkins at your next backyard
barbecue, use reusable plastic plates
and cloth napkins. This is far less
wasteful and can make a very positive
impact on the environment.
* Don't be so quick to turn on the air


conditioning. Air conditioners use
substantial amounts of energy. In lieu
of turning the air on at the first sign of
a heat wave, consider installing ceiling
fans or simply opening the windows.
Many families don't spend much time
at home during the daytime hours
when temperatures are at their peak
anyway, which should make it easier
to get through summer Without relying
so heavily on costly and
environmentally unfriendly air
conditioning.

Keep your lawn going strong


For green thumbers, summer can be
an up and down season. On the positive
side, summer provides a chance for
gardening or lawn care afficionados to
get out in the warm air and cultivate
their gardens and lawns. However, the
often harrowing heat synonymous with
summer-can also drive homeowners
.crazy, as they witness the sun ravage
their carefully cared for lawn.
But watering a yard properly can go a
long way toward relieving the stress that
comes with the summer season. Even
for homeowners living in regions where
long droughts are commonplace, the
following tips should help keep lawns
looking green and lush.
* Don't spend too much time on one
spot: When watering in summertime, it's
best to look at your yard as having
several different zones. When watering,
each zone, be careful not to spend too
much time on each one, instead
watering each zone several times for


shorter durations of time. For example,
rather than spending 12 straight minutes
watering a given zone, spend 4 minutes
at a time watering each zone, and do so
3 times. This. can reduce run-off, and
each zone will get 12 good and fruitful.
minutes of watering.
* Position sprinklers correctly: Too
often homeowners are paying to water
their sidewalks, driveways or other
areas such as patios where there is no
grass. That's thanks to poorly positioned
sprinklers that are overshooting grass,
trees or shrubs. When positioning
sprinklers, be sure to do so in a way that
the water, isn't watering concrete or
asphalt. This is especially important for
people who live in areas where drought
restrictions are commonplace. In such
areas homeowners will need to make
the most of the water they're allowed to
use.
. * Water at the right time: While it
might seem like your yard needs water


most when the day's temperature is at its
hottest, that's only half true. While it is
true your yard needs water then, that
does not mean this is when you should
be watering. Watering when the day is
most hot will lead to increased
evaporation, greatly reducing the water's
effect and impact on your lawn. Instead,
water when the sun is low and winds are
calm, such as late afternoon, early
evening or, ideally, before sunrise.
* Don't overdo it: Even if your lawn


looks bad, you want to avoid overdoing
it when it comes to watering. Watering
too frequently can lead to significant
problems, such as weed growth, fungus
or even disease. In addition, watering
too much leads to shallow roots,
weakening the grass or plants in the
meantime. In general, saturate the root
areas and then allow time for the soil to
dry. This will make for stronger roots
and a lawn that is more capable of
surviving the heat.
