 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.

Gardenng Tips for June from t-he Live Of :.. Ga d'xn Club


Love in the library


By Lucille Bobiney Heinrich
In his song, "Love in the Library,"
singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett reflects
that he found:
"Love in the library, quiet and cool
Love in the library, there are no rules
Surrounded by stories surreal and sub-
lime
I fell in love in the library once upon a
time"

What better place to visit during these
hot summer months, than the library. We
are fortunate to have in our community a
regional library that houses hundreds of
books on the subject of gardening. Stop by
one hot afternoon, surround yourself with
a stack of gardening books, relax in the
cool, quiet atmosphere, and browse away!
During a recent browsing session of our
own, here are some interesting facts and
tips gleaned from gardening books found

1. In June, gardenias should be about
through with blooming, so you may prune


them enough to shape them. Good time to
pinch Poinsettias to keep them from get-
ting leggy.
- The Book of Florida Gardening, by
Pasco Roberts
2. Elephant garlic is milder than tradi-
tional garlic and resembles an enormous
version of its namesake. Each clove swift-
ly multiplies into a leek-sized clump in the
garden even in poor soil. The blossoms of
this garlic can be picked and put in a vase
without water, where they will last indefi-
nitely.
- Garden Bulbs for the South, by Scott
Ogden
3. Sweet corn freezes well without pre-
liminary preparation: Cut the cobs early in
the morning before the sun warms them.
Thoroughly thaw the corn before cooking
or the corn will be cooked while the cob is
still frozen. Vegetable Growing for Health
and Flavor, Louis N. Flaws
4. Rain barrels and other containers set
out to catch rainwater should be tightly
capped when not collecting to prevent


evaporation. Add a few drops of oil to dis-
courage mosquitoes from breeding in the
water.
- The Big Book of Gardening Skills
5. Deer don't like people, so human hair
can serve as a deer repellant. Fill small
cheesecloth bags with hair (try your local
barber or beauty shop) and tie bags to the
trunk of trees or posts that border your gar-
den at 'deer-nose height. - The Expert's
Book of Garden Hints


So when the bugs, weeds, and heat get
you down, you know where to go for a re-
laxing hour or two of soaking in some
great. gardening information, or for that
matter, any other subject which interests
you. You may not find love in the library as
did Jimmy Buffett, but you will find lots of
good reading to rejuvenate your gardening
interests and help improve your gardening
skills and knowledge.

* The motto of Rotary International is: "Service Above Self; He
Profits Most Who Serves the Best." In that spirit two outstand-
ing Live Oak Rotarians, J. D. Henry and Alfred T. Airth, gave un-
selfish and distinguished service to their community. Their ser-
vice is honored annually when awards are given in their name.
The Henry-Airth Service Award committee identifies graduating
seniors who carry the promise that they may become citizens to
whom the torch of service may be passed. This vital distinction
defines the outstanding nominee. From a field of those nomi-
nees three were chosen for the award. They are: Shelby Broth-
ers, winner, John-Walt Boatright, runner-up and Kristin Goff run-
ner-up.
* The Gretchen Brinkman Scholarship Award is given to a
graduating senior who is going to college with a major or minor
in music and/or the arts. The award decision is based on moti-
vation, need, contribution to the arts and scholastic excellence.
This year's Gretchen-Brinkman award winner is Josh Bartolotti.

Q


I would like to paint or stain a
wooden fence I recently put
up. Can you tell me if one is
better than the other?


A Water repellents and paint are '
* coatings. A paint is considered a film
* that lays on top of the surface. Many
water repellents soak into the wood and do not
leave a film at the surface. The problem with
films or surface coatings is that they eventually
peel. When this happens, you are forced to
scrape or strip the loose and peeling film off
before you can apply a second coat. So it is a
matter of taste and wether you want to scrape
when it's time to re-apply. No matter which
coating you choose to use, you should wash the
wood with multi purpose wood cleaner by
Benjamin Moore, then let dry before applying.

Live Oak Paint & Flooring, we're here to help.

Insulin for Type 1 Diabetes
With Type I diabetes, there is a lack of insulin production by the
pancreas. This condition necessitates insulin replacement therapy.
Children who have increased thirst, frequent urination, extreme
hunger, and unexplained weight loss may have symptoms of this
condition. Type 1 diabetes occurs in children as a result of an
autoimmune process in which the immune system targets for
destruction, special cells in the pancreas called islet cells. The
insulin produced is secreted into the bloodstream. When insulin is
not produced in adequate amounts, sugar builds up in the
bloodstream. This can lead to complications that may affect the
heart, blood vessels, eyes, and kidneys, if blood sugar levels are not
controlled.
Treatment of type I diabetes in childhood consists of regularly
monitoring blood sugat; insulin therapy, healthy diet, and adequate
exercise. There arc a variety of insulin ltherapies available for the
treatment of type I diabetes. Insulin lispro (luifualog) and insulin
aspart (NovoLog) are rapid-acting. Regular insulin, such as human
insulin (Hindilin R, Novolin R) begins working within 30 minutes.
Intermediate-acting insulin, such as NPH insulin (Humuilin N.
Novolin N), begins working within 2 to 4 hours, Insulin glargine
(Lantus) provides an effect for up to 24 hours. s62ess.F

OPINION. -


Fine line


between rags


and style

Do you ever see or experience
something that gives you a flashback?
And no, I'm not talking about some
form of hallucinogen.
Well today I was watching this tele-
vised interview with a country music
artist - one of those new ones and I
can't even remember his name - who .
was talking about his early days in the
business (which, based on his appar- Dwain Walden
ent age was only a couple of months
prior).
In the conversation,-the interviewer noticed he was
wearing a frayed old denim jacket. I mean this thing
looked like the dogs played rug-o-war with it after he
got it unwrapped from the drive-shaft of his tour bus.
Here's the thing. He paid nearly $300 for this piece of
crap.It's truly amazing the thin line between junk and
style.
I was taken back (a flashback) to my favorite old
denim jacket. I was just a kid, and this was an incredi-
bly comfortable jacket with brass studs on the pockets.
- It was made by Lee. I had worn it down to the point
that mama wouldn't let me wear it to school. I wore it
for what we called "every day." In other words, I fed
the hogs in it.
Now the very idea that I would have gone on national
television wearing such a thing and embarrassing my
mama would have been as farfetched as playing poker
at Vacation Bible School.
So here's this guy who paid $300 for something that
he could probably have gotten for the price of a pint of
Mad Dog 20-20 in some alleys. Call it style, and you
can put a big price on it. And since you can sell used
ashtrays on E-bay, then selling a raggedy denim jacket
to an "artist" should be rather easy.
Now you make think I'm'kidding about the used ash
trays, but just try it. If the nicotine stains resemble -
Willie Nelson, you could probably get enough to cover
a tank of gas.
Now I realize that worn clothes wear better than
brand new ones..I prefer all-cotton pull-over shirts. Af-
ter they've been washed a few times, they are very soft
and cool. And I don't mean "cool" as in a stylish, state-
ment. I mean they let the air through. And for us fat
boys, that's important. It can be time green with ',-
spaghetti stains on it and some of us can justify it. for
"every day."
But when clothes get so ragged out that they are a
danger for you to be around moving equipment, then
I'm not going to be impressed that it's allegedly stylish
and you paid a lot of money for it. I will, however, sell
you some of mine that fit that description if it will make
you happy about being "in style." It will make me hap-
py . .
If I were a country star, I would seek a happy medi- .
um - something between the Porter Wagoner sequined
underwear and the denim jeans that suggest the junk
yard dog got to you before you could climb the fence.
I recall those days before the worn denim look. I
would have liked some compromise back then. Those
brand new Wranglers had so ituchdie in them, my legs
stayed blue for the first six weeks of school. The denim
was so heavy, on a cold morning you could take three'
steps before the legs moved.
OK, I've had my flashback.

OPINION


Live free or die


"Live Free or Die" is the
title of author and columnist
Mark Steyn's speech at
Hillsdale College, repro-
duced in Imprimis (April
2009), a Hillsdale publica-
tion that's free for the ask-
ing. Canadian born, now
living in New Hampshire,
Steyn has had firsthand ex-
perience with socialist


tyranny in his home country
that is rapidly becoming a part of America. Com-
menting on one of his run-ins with Canada's human
rights commissions, Steyn points how it might seem
bizarre to find the progressive left making common
cause with radical Islam. One half of that alliance is
pro-gay, pro-feminist secularists and the other half
is homophobic, misogynist theocrats. Steyn argues
what they have in conimon overrides their differ-
ences, namely, "Both the secular Big Government
progressives and the political Islam recoil from the
concept of the citizen, of the free individual entrust-
ed to operate within his own societal space, assume
his responsibilities, and exploit his potential."
I doubt whether there are many Americans who
think Congress has either the right or competency
to choose where they live, what clothes they wear
or what cars they drive, Yet many Americans stand
ready to allow Congress to decide what doctors,
they go to and what treatments they receive. We
forget that' once we have government-sponsored
health care, it can be used to justify almost any re-.
straint on liberty. That's the justification behind hel-"
met and seatbelt laws. Britain is well along the road
toward totally controlling health care. Steyn says,
"Under Britain's National Health Service, for exam-
ple, smokers in Manchester have been denied 6teat-
ment for heart disease, and"the obese in Suffolk are
refused hip and knee replacements. Parricia Hewitt,
the British Health Secretary, says that it's appropri-
ate to decline treatment on the basis of 'lifestyle
choices.'" Steyn adds, "Smokers and the obese may
look at their gay neighbor having unprotected sex
with multiple partners, and wonder why his
'lifestyle choices' get a pass while theirs don't. But
that's the point: Tyranny is always whimsical."
In most of the developed world, the government
has gradually taken over many of the responsibili-


ties of adulthood from health
care, childcare, care of the
elderly and other responsi-
bilities formerly seen as in-
dividual or family. Nobel
Laureate economist Paul
Krugman suggests that
American conservatives
preaching "family values" is
hypocrisy while Europeans
live it. On the continent,


Krugman says, "Government
regulations actually allow people to make a desir-
able tradeoff -- to modestly lower income in return
for more time with friends and family." Steyn in-
sightfully observes, "As befits a distinguished econ-
omist, Professor Krugman failed to notice that for a
continent of 'family friendly' policies, Europe is re-
markably short of families. While America's fertility
rate is more or less at replacement level -- 2.1 --
seventeen European nations are at what demogra-
phers call 'lowest-low' fertility -- 1.3 or less -- a rate
from which no society in human history has ever
recovered. Germans, Spaniards, Italians and Greeks
have upside-down family trees: four grandparents
have two children and one grandchild." Steyn asks,
"How can an economist analyze 'family friendly'
policies without noticing that the upshot of these
policies is that nobody has any families?' My an-
swer to Steyn's questions is: the kind of economist
that looks at the seen and ignores the unseen.
Mark Steyn provides us with a historical tidbit.
"Live Free or Die," which graces New Hampshire's
license plate, are the words of John Stark, New
Hampshire's Revolutionary War hero. He uttered
those words decades after the War when-he was 81
yeats old, the complete sentence, being: "Live free
or die; Death is not the worst of evils." Steyn says.
these words should not be interpreted "as a battle
cry: We'll win this thing or die trying, die an honor-
able death. But in fact it's something far less dra-
matic: It's a bald statement of the reality of our lives
in the prosperous West. You can live as free men,
but, if you choose not to, your society will die."

"It definitely all comes
from the heart," says
Kelly Nicole Hunter of
her singing.


The road


to stardom


isn't paved


Kelly Nicole Hunter

Aspiring Branford singer
waits tables while looking
to make her mark
By Stephenie Livingston�
So you think you can be a county
singer? Maybe, but it's going to take a lot,
of work. Just ask Kelly Nicole Hunter,
who by day works as a waitress at a local
restaurant, serving coffee and chatting
with customers, all the while dreaming of
,-bigger things. -
Hunter has been singing since she was
a child and is totaUlly self taught. '
"It's what I've always wanted to do,"
said Hunter. "I've always wanted to sing."
Hunter's major influence is Martina
McBride, and she's' always had her heart
set on singing country music. Hunter has
made appearances at Branford's 4th of
July River Reunion celebrations, the Spir-
it of the Suwannee Music Park, and the
Suwannee County fair. However, recently
she landed a gig opening for Colt Ford
and David Cooler after she was seen au-
ditioning for the Suwannee River Jam.
For Hunter, the bestpart of singing is
seeing the effect it has on, listeners.
"I love seeing people enjoying what I
do," said Hunter. "I like hearing their
feedback." .
She says her family, has been her chief
support, especially her mother. Hunter
said that without her family she would
never be able to deal with all the pres-
sures and difficulties of being an aspiring
.singer.
"You hear people talk about starving
artist, it's true, they exist," said Hunter.
According to Hunter, if it weren't for hav-
ing bills to pay; she wouild'ye taken off to
Nashville years ago.
Still, Hunter says that whether she
makes it big or not, nothing will ever de-
stroy her love for music and singing. "If
it happens for me, it happens, if it doesn't,
it doesn't. I'll still always sing," -said
Hunter.

as a way of life


Sisters Bobbi Dunn, left, and Pat Samperio. - Photo: Stephenie Livingston


Two sisters

started a

now-thriving

business as

single moms

By Stephenie Livingston
Bobbi Dunn and Pat Sam-
perio are bringing a renewed
sense of family to Branford
with their family-run busi-
ness, Sister's Caf6.
The sisters, long time resi-
dents of Branford, say they
decided, to open Sister's Cafe
as a way to keep their family
close and to help each other
raise their daughters. Both .
Bobbi and Patti were single
mothers when they first
started Sister's.
Running a business wasg
not entirely foreign to the
sisters. Samperio had 14
years' experience in the
restaurant business, and
Dunn had worked for Home
of Merit. According to Dunn,
the sister's decided to go into
the restaurant business as a
way to bring their family
closer together. "We were
both in a period where we
were bored with our current
jobs," said Dunn. "And Pat's
job had taken her several
hours away to south Flori-
da."
While the sisters had some
experience coming into the
venture of opening a new
restaurant, they were weary
of opening a business in
such a small town.
"We lived here most of
our childhood and had seen
several restaurants come and
go," said Dunn.

They first looked in Live
Oak and Lake City for a
building, but didn't find any-
thing suitable. They finally
drove through Branford one
day after building searching
and noticed a new place up
for rent in downtown Bran-
ford.
"It was exactly what we'd
been looking for," said Sam-
perio.
According to Samperio, it
took some time, but eventu-
ally news of the new restau-
rant spread all over town.
Later, both Samperio and
Dunn met their future hus-
bands while serving at Sis-
ters. Their husbands, Julio
Samperio and Mason Dunn,
help out by doing electrical
work and fixing anything
that needs to be fixed around
Sister's. "We say we made
them fill out an application,"
Samperio said laughing.
"Sister's is a tremendous
family thing, 90% of our
employee's are family and
those who aren't might as
well be. This is significant in
a time when family close-


"It's a true down-home at-
mosphere," said Dunn.
"When you're here, you hear
nothtig but laughter."
Samperio went.on to tell
of how often the sister's dis-
turb guest with bouts of
laughter radiating from the
kitchen.
Dunn says that in a time
when many small restaurants
are going out of business,
theirs is going strong.
"This little.town has a lot
of loyal people," said Sam-
perio. "They've remained
loyal through these hard
times."
Dunn and Samperio even
have plans to expand the
buffet and make it more effi-
cient. According to Sampe-
rio, the people of Branford
have done a lot for Sister's
Cafe and they want to con-
tinue to improve the restau-
rant for them.
"We joke a lot about how
we're going to be in the old
folk home, still laughing and
telling old stories," Dunn
fondly said of she and Sam-
perio.


ness seems to be slipping."
According to Dunn, their
main goal was to create a
place where everyone could
feel at home. "We have an
open door policy. Everyone
is welcome and we treat
everyone like family," said
Dunn. "That's why we've
done so well."
Now, their restaurant is
thriving with one of the
largest and freshest buffets in
town. "All of our meat and
sides are cooked to serve,
nothing is ever cold or old,"
said Samperio. Dunn says
that shefand Samperio are
the only cooks because it's
their name on the restaurant.
Dunn explained that the only
way to know everything is
cooked correctly, is to do it
yourself. "There's never a
time when one of us are not
here," said Samperio. "We
always have our hands in the
food," Dunn went on to say.
Samperio said one of the
keys to their success is their
diligence and hard work, and
the unique atmosphere
they've created.


O'Brien teen charged in golf cart theft


By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com


An O'Brien teen was charged with
two counts of burglary and two counts
of grand theft Sunday after allegedly
stealing two golf carts from beneath a
barn at Camp Dovewood.
Authorities say the young male, a mi-
nor whose name was not released, rode
his bike to Camp Dovewood at 23221
101st Street and stole two golf carts


stole a second cart. Authorities say the
minor confessed to driving the cart
around his neighborhood for a while be-
fore driving it home and parking it in the
woods behind his house.
After questioning, the young man was
left in the custody of his parents, ac-
cording to a sheriffs officer spokesper-
son.
Both carts were returned to their own-
er. According to the owner, each was
valued at $2,500.


from underneath a pole barn. He was
found in possession of one the golf carts
parked in the woods near his home, re-
ports show. The minor was read his
rights and questioned about the theft. He
denied having stolen the carts but later
admitted his guilt, according to reports.
The minor told Suwannee County
Sheriffs Deputy Tom Mullins that he first
tried to take a red golf cart but got it stuck
in a wooded area behind the Dovewood
barn. He then reportedly went back and

"Denture Adhesive Warning"
Oh no! What am I going to do without my denture adhesive cream? Recently in the news
there have been reports about the adverse affects of wearing denture adhesive creams. On
May 5th, 2009, Good Morning America ran an exclusive report warning about the dangers.
of wearing denture adhesive creams. After reviewing the article I came to several
conclusions that will benefit you as a denture wearer.
First, "excessive" use of these creams can become a real danger because of zinc, which
assists with the denture retention. The zinc becomes a real danger to the nervous system
when used in excess. Zinc poisoning (hyperzincemia), copper depletion, or copper
deficiency (hypocupremia), and neuropathy (diseases of or malfunctions of the nerves or
nervous system), are a few of the problems that have been recently reported.
So your next question should be what is considered "excessive" usage. If you answer yes to /
any of these questions, then you are probablyusing the product in excess.
Do you sleep in your dentures? Do you use denture adhesive creams more than one time
,per day? Do you use more than several small drops at time? Are you unable to wear your " ,
dentures without some type of adhesive? R

Suwannee Middle
School's Geo Club has
spent the past several
weeks selling "Go Green"
bracelets, recycled pencils
and "Love the Earth" dog
tags to raise funds for a
long-term project planned
to help their school reduce
energy consumption in the
next several years.
The goal was to plant
four trees on the south side
of the 6th grade wing,
placed to shade the large
banks of windows that now
get direct sunlight during
the afternoons. The prob-
lem was that very little
money was raised, but
Ryan Sedgely, manager of
the local Lowe's, came to
the rescue. Lynne
Hutchins, Geo Club spon-
sor, approached Sedgely
concerning the problem and
the possibility of a .dis-
count. To her surprise,
Sedgely volunteered to do-.
nate all of the trees, as well
as landscape fencing to pro-
tect the young trees from
lawnmowers and students
eager to rush to class.
Geo Club members,
along with Hutchins, co-
sponsor Linard Johnson,
and Hutchins's husband
Marvin worked hard to get
the trees planted, With the
recent rains, the trees have
gotten the best start possi-
ble. In the next few years,
club members. hope to ex-
pand the project to include
tree planting next to the 7th

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: Why is flossing so important?
A: Regular flossing is important
because it helps remove the unhealthy
buildup of plaque on your teeth. And
studies have found that keeping your
mouth free of plaque may also be
good for your heart. A protein
associated with inflammation, called
C-reactive protein, is consistently
elevated in people who are at risk for
heart disease, which is the result of a
bacterial infection that attacks the gum
tissue that supports the teeth. Signs
and symptoms of the disease range
from bad breath to painful abscesses


to loss of teeth.
These findings show that good dental
hygiene may reduce the risk of heart
disease, stroke and atherosclerosis,
which is hardening of the arteries.
Studies involving the carotid arteries of
humans with periodontal disease have
shown that one year after receiving
periodontal treatment, the subjects
showed a reduced thickening of blood
vessels. Talk with your dentist about
the importance of flossing.

will be $300,000,- which,
.combined with the city's
contribution, would be
.used to purchase rights-of-

Cason recently made the
same presentation to the
,.county commission, but
said he wanted to present
the idea to the city before
formally requesting any
money.
City Council President


John Hale said the bypass
road would be of great ben-
efit to all concerned.
"I think it would be very
g6od for the community,"
Hale said Thursday. "I
think it will reduce traffic
congestion and help with
downtown revitalization."
City attorney Emy Sell-
ers also endorsed the pro-
ject.
"This to me is a win-win
situation," he said at Tues-
day's meeting. "It's a public
safety project."-
The city will fund the
project over a two-year pe-
riod. Cason will appear be-
fore the county commis-
sion at a later date to re-
quest the county's share of
the funds.
If approved, the bypass
road will run from 72nd

The project was a hot
topic among homeowners
in the area, who worried
about.pollution, noise and


land value if the mine,

"Aaaaaah - relief," resi-
dent Tom Matthews said
by email on hearing the

Former Bulldog




makes the




big leagues


By Mark Lastinger
Thomasville Times-Enterprise

STHOMASVILLE -Live Oak native and
former Suwannee Bulldog Ryan Stovall'
has added to his lengthy list of contrib-
tions to the local baseball scene.
Last Wednesday, Stovall became the
first Thomas University and Thomasville
SBombers player to be drafted. The hard-
hitting shortstop was selected in the 19th
round of Major League Baseball's 2009
First-Year Player Draft by the Kansas
* City Royals. He was the 572nd overall
pick.
*"He's big time excited," said stepfather
Wade Skinner. "When lie got the call he
w* anted to know when he's supposed to
leave."
-Stovall, 5-foot-ll, 185 pounds, posted
record-breaking statistics in his lone sea-
son at Thomas University. While leading
the Night Hawks to a 30-13 mark in
2009, he set single-season standards for
batting average (.487), slugging percent-
age (1.032), hits (76), home runs (20),
total bases (161) and stolen bases (14).
In addition to being named the Associ-
ation of Independent Institutions Player
of the Year, he earned second-team


NAIA All-America status.
"I talked to him briefly. He
called me right after he got
the call (from the Royals),"
Thomas University baseball
coach Mike Lee said. "He
was still waiting to find out
where he might be going and Ryan Stov
when the guy who signs him
will be coming down. He's excited about
it.
"It'll probably be three or four days
before everything gets ironed out and he
can go somewhere and start playing
ball." '
Lee is almost as thrilled about Wednes-
day's development as Stovall.
"He's a great kid, and I couldn't be
happier for him," he said. "He did a fan-
tastic job of representing Thomas Uni-
versity and we are pleased he is able to
go on and pursue his dream."
Lee said Stovall was an incredible dif-
ference maker for his team.
"Anytime you've got a leadoff hitter
who can hit the ball out of the park and
on-base percentage like he did, it
changes the whole lineup," he explained.
"They couldn't pitch around him and we
had some hitters behind him who defi-


SI




all

nitely benefited from his presence - and,
of course, he benefited by them doing a
good job.
"There weren't too many times that we
had him sitting.on the bench."
Lee hopes Stovall's selection will
boost his program.
"It gives the scouts a reason to show
up when you've had one get-drafted," he
said. "Hopefully, they will continue to
come around, and anytime you can bring
the scouts around you will get the (re-
cruits) who want to be seen. It should
help its tremendously."
Stovall was playing for the Bombers at
the time of his selection. They are a
Great South League team established in
2007 for college and professional base-
ball prospects.
Democrat reporter Jeff Waters con-
tributed to this story.

White and the guy who changed
baseball, its first free agent, Curt
Flood.

Oak. For more in- Mazeroski, another future Hall Of
nd Recreation at Famer, rounded out a line up that
also included MVPS Ken Boyer,
Dick Groat, and a chubby catcher
named Joe Torre. They were


Managed by Hall Of Famer Casey
Stengel and coached by Hall Of
Famer Walt Alston and should-be
Hall Of Famer Gil Hodges.
The American League wasn't a
bunch of slackers. They had their
share of MVP future Hall of
Famers: Mickey Mantle, Brooks
Robinson and Harmon Killebrew
along with MVP Elston Howard
and the guy the Mets traded Nolan
Ryan for, Jim Fregosi. The
American Leaguers also featured
two guys who belong in the Hall
Of Fame, Tony Oliva and Rocky
Colavito. Their manager was Hall
Of Famer Al Lopez.
Dean Chance pitched well and in
between John Wyatt and Camilio
Pascual let in three runs, two
coming via homers from Boyer and
Williams. Turk Farrell of the
Houston Colt 45's was on the hook
for the Nationals as the losing
pitcher when they entered the
ninth. With two outs in the ninth
Johnny Callison hit a three-run
homer off Radatz to win the game,
for the National League.
All in all I saw 17 Hall of
Famers that day. There are only 65
members alive today. Guys like
Torte, White, Boyer, Oliva, Flood,
Hodges and.Colavito are still
mentioned by the old timers


committee. There were seven Cy
Young Awards and seven former
Rookie Of The Year Award
winners, 16 MVP awards, one
Triple Crown winner and one
future U.S. Senator at Shea that
day. There may have been more at
another All Star game at another
time, but not for this 13-year-old..

Gardening workshop, courtesy LOGC


Submitted

At a recent four-hour gardening
workshop sponsored by the Live Oak
Garden Club, attendees received
instruction on how to identify a particular
plant by Carolyn Saft, County Extension
Service. Saft then handed out different
leaves and branches and put the
participants in small groups to identify the
particular plants they were given.
Following a session of detective work and
assisted by Mrs. Saft and her staff of,
advanced Master Gardeners, attendees at
the Workshop did a great job of
identifying their plants.
Next, Barbara Barker, who runs a small
organic gardening company, The Gourmet.
Gardener, gave a very interesting and
fragrant presentation on growing and
cooking with herbs. She guided the group
in learning how to make their own herbed
salts. Mrs. Barker is the author of a newly
released book, "The Healthy Container


Garden: The 12 Most Important Fruits and
Vegetables to Grow in Your Organic
Garden."
Participants were then treated to
refreshments prepared by Garden Club
members which featured herbs in their
preparation including mint lemonade,
Rosemary cheddar muffins, herbed bread,
cauliflower with herbs, and various dips
featuring different kinds of herbs.
Dan Gerencser, Nobles Greenhouse,
provided the materials and taught the
participants to make their own bonsai
arrangement. Following this presentation,
Mrs. Saft gave the group basic
landscaping design tips, and then
challenged the group to come up with
various landscape designs when given a
variety of different landscape scenarios.
This once-a-year event is fast becoming
one of the highlights of gardening
experiences in Live Oak, and participants
are looking forward to next year's
activities.

onship in 1995 before attending the University of
North Carolina where he made a pair of Final Four
appearances with the Tar Heels. .

Shoreline anglers need to buy license by Aug. 1


Florida's resident saltwater anglers who fish from
shore or a Structure affixed to shore will need to buy a
$7.50 (plus administrative and'handling fees) shoreline
fishing license by Aug. 1, unless they have a regular
resident saltwater fishing license.,
The new license applies only to Florida resident salt-
water anglers who fish from shore. Resident anglers
may prefer to purchase the regular recreational saltwa-
ter license that covers them, no matter where they fish
for saltwater species in Florida.
Florida has always required nonresidents to have a
license when fishing from shore, and they will still


need to purchase a regular nonresident saltwater fish-
ing license,
The new shoreline saltwater fishing license for resi-.
- dents goes on sale July 15. It provides all of the same
exemptions as a regular license, including senior citi-
zens, children, disabled people who meet certain quali-
. fications,' active-duty military personnel while home on
leave, and anglers. Who fish from a licensed pier..
In addition, the shoreline license requirement in-
cludes two new exemptions':
* anglers drawing food stamps, temporary cash assis-
tance or Medicaid; and


* anglers fishing in their home counties who use cane
poles or other gear that does not depend on mechanical
retrieval.
At the request of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC), the Florida Legislature
passed the. new license requirement to head off a feder-
al license requirement that will go into effect Jan. 1,
2010, and will have a $15-$25 fee beginning in 2011.
Florida's new shoreline license exempts this state's an-
glers from the federal license requirement.

Centennial tribute to Archie

Carr - The father of Sea

Turtle Research Conservation


Continued From Page 4B

largest nesting population
of green turtles in the Unit-
ed States. It contains im-
portant nesting beaches for
leatherback turtles as well.
Few people fully under-
stand who Archie was or
why he was so important
to the world of conserva-
tion. Dr. Carr was a
revered zoology professor
at the University of Flori-
da, the world's leading au-
thority on sea turtles, a
brilliant writer of scientific
and popular literature, and
an internationally ac-
claimed advocate for.con-
servation. His inquiring
mind was legendary and he
inspired legions of scien-
tific followers and ac-
tivists.
In 1937, Archie become
the first person to receive a
doctorate from the Univer-
sity of Florida's zoology
department. In 1956, Dr.
Carr published his award-
winning book, The Wind-
ward Road, which alerted
the world to the plight of
sea turtles and spawned a
global movement for their
protection. The book lead
to the formation of the first
organization dedicated to
protecting sea turtles, the
Caribbean Conservation
Corporation in 1959. Dr..
Carr and the Corporation
convinced Costa Rica to.:
establish Tortuguero Na-
tional Park to save the
largest nesting population
of green.sea turtles in the
western hemisphere and to
set up a research,station
there. which is now pro-
tected as the Dr. Archie
Carr Wildlife Refuge in the

Lim6n Province of
northeastern Costa Rifa., *
Based in Gainesville and
now celebrating its 50th
anniversary,:the Caribbean
Conservation Corporation
continues to carry out Dr.
Carr's mission. Archie's
family life was also full
and intertwined with his
professional life. His wife,;;;
Marjorie Harris Carr, was
herself a distinguished
conservationist. The Mar-'
jorie Harris Carr Cross
Florida. Greenway is
named after Marjorie's leg-
endary effort to stop the
U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers from digging a giant
canal across Florida to
connect the Atlantic and
the Gulf. The Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Protection honored both
Carrs with the dedication
of the Archie and Marjorie
Harris Carr Building in
Tallahassee. Archie and
Marjorie raised five chil-
dren. One of their favorite
getaways was a cabin deep
in the woods of Ocala Na-
tional Forest. That cabin
was recently re-discovered
and currently is proposed
for restoration.
It would be a fitting trib-
ute for all of us to reflect,
like Archie did, on the
wonder of nature and the
mystery of sea turtles. Pick
up a book he wrote, like
So Excellent A Fish or
Ulendo, or read about him
in A Naturalist in Florida
or The Man Who Saved
Sea Turtles. But to truly
honor Archie Carr, one
need only take up the
cause for protecting
wildlife and wild places.
With a little effort to dark-
en thebeactduring nest-
ing season, to support land
and marine conservation


efforts, and to support re-
search and education, we
can all contribute to sea
turtle conservation. Archie
would be very proud.

Shoreline anglers need to buy license by Aug. 1


Continued From Page 3B

Several hunting, fishing and conservation organiza-,
tions requested other permit fee changes, which do not
take effect until July 2010. They include increases in:
* the state waterfowl stamp, from the current $3 to
$5;
* in the resident turkey permit, from $5 to $10;
* the nonresident turkey permit, from $100 to $125;
* the wildlife management area permit for hunting,
fishing and other recreational uses, from $25 to $30;
* the limited-entry or special-opportunity hunt fee,
from $100 per day to $150 per day and $250 per week
to $300 per week, as determined by FWC Commis-
sioners;


* the snook permit, from $2 to $10; and
* the lobster permit, from $2 to $5.
Also, new laws create a $5 annual deer permit (in
addition to the current hunting license requirement for
deer hunters) and allow the agency to charge up to $5
per day for non-hunting and non-fishing recreation on
certain wildlife management areas.
The FWC will evaluate areas where it is the lead
manager to determine where to charge the fees and
how much to charge. In addition, the state will use up
to 10 percent of the hunting and sport-fishing fees to
promote those sports, with emphasis on youth partici-
pation.
For more information about outdoor recreation and
FWC programs, go to MyFWC.com.

Dear Classified Guys,
My good friend has somehow man-
aged to survive in a rural area with-
out learning to drive. Most of her
friends, Including myself, have given
her a ride when she needed it. She
just turned 30 last year and got mar-
ried. Her husband finally convinced
her tq get a driver's license and stop
depending on other people. It's only
been about 9 months since her driv-
ing test, which took her three times
to pass, and she's already been
involved in three car accidents. The
last one totaled her car. She's fine,
but I'm thinking driving may not be in
the cards for her. She's out looking
for another used car, hopefully pre-
dentedl She loves the freedom of
driving, but I'm really beginning to
worry about her safety and
those on the road around '
her. I'm thinking I should
convince her to go back to
hitching rides. Her husband j
thinks I am over reacting.
What do you guys think I should do?
Cash: First off, you shouldn't offer
to loan her your car. It may not come
back in the same condition.
Carry: Most new drivers, even as
adults, don't realize how inexperienced

they really are when they first get behind
the wheel. New drivers are among the
highest at risk for accidents. It can take
years of training and experience to learn
good driving skills that will help avoid
being involved in an accident.
Cash: It's nice that you want to
watch out for your friend, but as adults
we all get to make our own decisions.
If your friend is enjoying her newfound
freedom of driving, there may not be
much you can say to change her mind,
Carry: However, if you're worried-
about her, you should share your con-
cerns about her driving. Consider sug-


gesting a defensive driving course. In
fact, you could even offer to take it with
her. You may learn something yourself.
In addition, most insurance companies
offer a discount for taking the course.
Cash: With three accidents in the
last nine months, her insurance premi-
ums are sure to reflect her driving
record very shortly. The costs alone
may be enough to deter her from driv-
ing, so the course would be of great
benefit to her.
Carry: Regardless of her decision to
keep driving, if you do go anywhere
together, you may want to drive!


Traffic Jam
It seems like everyone on the road
today could use a brushing up on his or
her drivingskills. Recently GMAC
Insurance released the results of their
2009 National Drivers Test. The survey
of more than 5000 drivers over all 50
states found soine staggering results.
Over 20% of licensed drivers, roughly
41 million, would not pass a written
drivers test if taken today. People age
18 to 24 had the highest failure rates
and those over 45 years old scored the
best.
Fender Bender
The month and day of the week can
play a large role in your risk for having
a car accident. For example, a snowy
January day would seem like a high-
risk time to drive. However, according
to statistics from the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration, August is
the most dangerous month of the year
to drive and Saturday is the most dan-
gerous day of the week. In addition, an
AAA survey found that you are 4 times
more likely to have an accident if using
your cell phone while driving.

Breaking Point
As a commuter I tend to log a lot
of miles on-my car. So when my
daughter headed off to college, I
gave her my vehicle and got another
one. Even though my old car had
high miles and a couple of dents, I
thought it ran rather well.
Shortly after arriving at school, she
began calling every few weeks to tell
me the car needed repair. First it'was
the battery that died, then the starter
and then the radiator.
On her last call she told me she took
it in to have the muffler replaced.
"The mechanic said it would be the
last one I needed," she said.
"Great," I commended. "It sounds
like you got a good quality muffler."
"Not exactly," she replied. "He
just didn't think the car would last
much longer!."

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