 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.

OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat


It's time
It happened gradually, and not
everyone noticed. But look at Live
Oak with fresh eyes and it's obvious:
our little town has grown up around
us. ,
Whatever we once were, we barely
resemble. Our town - which, make no
mistake, we love dearly and always
will - looks nothing like the place that
lives on in so many folks' memories.
The county's population now ap-
proaches 40,000. The combined bud-.
gets for city and county government
top $70 million. We're still a small
town, just not in the way we remem-
ber.
As we grow, problems that have
long plagued us become more appar-
ent. Most of these are economic in na-,
ture. We're still having trouble attract-
ing clean industry and high-paying
jobs. As a result, our young people
continue to leave out of financial ne-
cessity. The best many can hope for is
to come back home to retire.
We think it's time to address at least
one of the underlying obstacles to our
community's continued well-being.
The elephant in the room is alcohol.
The arguments in favor of going wet
are well known. We won't restate them
here. And no. we don't believe that one
new Applebee's will open the door to
sudden wealth. But we can't keep pre-
tending we're something we're not.
Much has changed since this issue was
last put before the public. Another
hearing is long overdue.
Lots of good things are happening in
Suwannee County. To us the future
looks bright. It's time to face it head-
on.
We'd like to hearfrom you 'on this is-
sue, folks. Feel free to call or,
write. You can reach us by phone at
386-362-1734, by email at nf.editori-
al@gaflnews.com or through the U.S.
Postal Service at P.O. Box 370,

By Jeff Waters

The Suwannee County
Commission v6ted Tues-

a projected $2 million
shortfall in taxable values

economic conditions as the
reason for the delay.

Q What test do you perform to
* find out if my air conditioning
� unit is leaking freon?

A One way is with a dye based air
! conditioning leakdown test. It uses a
* colored dye to find freon leaks in your
air conditioning system. Using this test, a colored
dye is injected into the a/c system which will be
visible under UV (ultra-violet) light at the point of a
leak anywhere in the system. The test is
performed under full pressure with the air
conditioning system closed (sealed as if you were
driving under normal conditions). For more
information call the professionals at Touchton's
Heating & Air.

Nothing is more satisfy-
ing than watching seeds
planted in a garden which
grows into vegetables to be
eaten. But, you may have
more than you (and your
neighbors!) can eat during
the season. Canning can
help you store the food for
when ,the garden is no
longer producing.
Spoilage occurs when
microorganisms, such as
bacteria, fungus, viruses or
parasites,, are allowed to
grow on food. Canning
makes the food safe, but


only if it is done properly.
Foods are placed in jars and
heated to temperatures that
destroy microorganisms
and also slow the enzymat-
ic process (which chemical-
ly matures the fruits and
vegetables). When the jars
cool, a vacuum is created
which prevents additional
contamination from enter-
ing the jars. Low acid
foods like vegetables and
meats must be canned in a
pressure canner at 240� F. at
10 lbs. of pressure, while
acid foods .such as fruits
and jams or jellies can be
processed in a boiling water
bath.
Because of the danger of
Clostridium botulinum
(which causes the food poi-
soning botulism), the low
acid green beans are a food
that must be pressure
.canned to be safe. The
spores of Clostridium botu-
linum can be destroyed by
canning the food at a tem-
perature of 2400� or above
for a specified -period of
time. This temperature can
only be achieved in a pres-
sure canner since it is a


temperature above boiling
water (212� F.). It is impor-
tant to obtain recent, re-
search-based recipes since
old time tables for process-
ing foods used only a water
bath canner, which research
has now found to present a
very serious risk of botu-
lism. University of Georgia
has an excellent Web site at
http://www.uga.edu/nchfp/
or contact your local Exten-
sion office for updated in-
formation.
It takes about 1 1/2 to two
pounds of green or wax
beans to make one quart jar
of canned beans. So, for a
30 lb. box, you will need
about 15-20 quart jars.
JIn addition, the beans
may be packed into the jars
raw or they may be preheat-
ed first before packing.
Raw pack means that the
raw, unheated food is
placed directly into the jars
and then boiling water is
poured over the beans. The
beans must be packed tight-
ly as they will shrink during
processing. Hot pack means
heating the food to boiling
and then placing the hot
food and liquid into the jars.
Hot packed foods should be
placed in jars loosely as
shrinkage has already taken.
place.
Commercially prepared
canned goods typically con-,
tain a lot of sodium.. The.
good news? During can-
ning, salt is not needed for
preservation, but simply for
taste and/or color protec-
tion. Therefore, if you have.
someone who is watching
their salt intake, and the
recipe calls for a teaspoon
or two of salt, it can be
eliminated. NOTE: Salt is
used for its preservative ef-
feet during fermentation for
pickling, for example. If the
!,recipe calls for a large
quantoit of salt. it cannot be
eliminated or substituted.
If you are growing your
ow n food and paying for
fertilizer,: pesticides, water


and equipment, the canned
food may not be saving you
money. However, garden-
ing and spending time with
loved ones putting away
foods in a time-honored
tradition to leave freezer
space for other products
can be very rewarding.

Teen pregnancy prevention


By Colleen Cody
Healthy Start Coordinator
In Suwannee County our
teen pregnancy rate is 17.8
percent, well above the
state average of 10.7 per-
cent. It's more than just a
few girls.
Pregnancy has a lot of
consequences for the preg-
nant girl and also the father.
Becoming a mom or dad is
a huge responsibility that
will be with them for the
rest of.their life. It's diffi-
cult to stay in school, mom
and/or dad sometimes
drops out to get a job. Their.
friends may. avoid them.


What about the parents of
the expecting couple?
Pregnancy is a big financial
burden. Emotionally it's
hard for them to let their
children suddenly become
adults. It's a role they need
to learn even though they
still need help transitioning
into parents. There are ser-
vices available to them stay
in school through the
school system. Other ser-
vices are available free of
charge through Healthy
Start at the Suwannee
County Health Department
and in the community.
I know you are thinking,
"Not my child." Guess
what? If your childis under
19, it could be. 'teens in
this county ARE having
sex - in high school and
even in middle school. So,
what do you do about it?
Talk' with your children -
boys and girls. Let them'
know how you feel, how
much you care about them,

what your family values
are, keep the lines of com-
munication open "and try
not to be judgmental. Show
them their strengths and
keep education a top priori-
ty. Let them know that their
actions do have conse-
quences and they should
never be pressured into sex.
Teens do feel invincible -
"It won't happen to me."
If your child tells you
that they are sexually ac-
tive, get them access to
birth control. Remember
it's not just pregnancy they
need protection from; there
are other serious conse-
quences from sex.
For teens that already
have a child, help them wait
until later for another baby.
Spacing babies 18 months
or more apart is healthiest
for the mom. Have them
look ahead at their goals for
school and jobs. , Better
planning now will help cre-
ate a better future for them-
selves and their child.
Teen pregnancy preven-
tion - it's no just a teen's
problem, it's everyone's
problem.

The Lafayette County

a result of a months-long

that seat belts save lives-.

Cameron said Tuesday.
Current law 'does not al-

measure will allow law en-
forcement officials to stop
and ticket those 18 and old-

in the front seat. Anyone
under 18' in, the back seat
must be restrained or in an
approved child restraint
system. The law goes into
effect June 30.
"The city of Live Oak
Police Department will ful-
ly enforce the law to ensure
the safety of its citizens,"
Live Oak Police Chief
Buddy Williams said. "I
feel like it is a step in the


progress I assume it will
be satisfied," said Nobles.
Nobles said although it
is not part of the suit, the
city will begin updating
sidewalks for handicap ac-
cess and will construct
ramps where needed and
update those that are not in
compliance.
City hall is also getting
two new counters for cus-

to the success of their In-
ternet show "Teen Wilder-
ness" on YouTube.
The Barker brothers said
they have hosted their
North Florida nature show
for nearly two years. They
have featured nearly 60
species of creatures on the
show, including: banana
spiders, green tree frogs,
lizards, gopher tortoises
and even lions.
Rhett Barker, whose
Web alias is Atlas
Capronie, said the show
spawned from an 8th
grade school-assignment in.
which he chose to take a
video camera and go out
and film creatures in his
backyard.
Since that time he and
his brother have continued
weekly updates to their.
Web site: www.teenwilder-
ness.tk, which gets nearly
100 visitors a day.
Brian Barker (Web alias
Jason Capronie) does most
of the camera work, while
Rhett edits and sometimes
films underwater footage.
The pair has visited sever-
al state parks and even
filmed at Big Cat Rescue,
an animal sanctuary in
Tampa.
Earlier this year, Nick-
elodeon producers emailed
the Barkers to ask if they
were interested in appear-
ing on the network televi-
sion show.
Rhett said initially he
thought the email from
Nickelodeon was a fake,
so he deleted the message.
After a second email ar-
rived, Rhett informed his
parents, who confirmed
the email's legitimacy.,
In March, a small film
crew showed up at the.
boys' doorstep to spend a
day filming the Barker
boys on one of their nature
adventures. They spent
most of the day at the
Suwannee River State
Park.
"First they interviewed


us," Rhett Barker said.
"Then the crew filmed us
filming our show."
Brian Barker found the
experience quite thrilling.
"It was actually really
interesting having a huge
camera crew following us
around," he said.
Rhett Barker, who enters
10th grade at Suwannee
High School this fall, said
he hopes to one day own a
zoo or wildlife sanctuary
and travel around the
world filming animals.

MAYOR'S
CORNER


BY SONNY NOBLES
It's your money and you need to
knowhow'it is being spent. Most~of
this Mayor's Comer is dedicated to
informing you about all the good
things that are happening in your city.
The drinking or potable water pro-\
gram is moving forward. The city is
in the process of attempting to relo-
cate our well fields. DEP has deter-
mined that our current well fields are
under the direct influence of surface,
water primarily due to the many dry'
wells or go away holes in the city.
Don't be alarmed, your. water is good
and safe. It requires a higher level of
filtering and treatment to keep it that
way. This advanced treatment is very
costly. A new well field will save you
tens of thousands of dollars in that
this advanced treatment would not
have to occur. We are in line for a
three million dollar grant to relocate
the well fields. This program also in-
cludes a new water tank and piping
north of town. This water tower will
enable us to provide improved fire
suppression capabilities for new busi-
ness and industry that might be inter-
ested in coming. With the new tank,
two existing tanks will be taken out of
service. This again will save tens of
thousands of dollars since these tanks
won't have to be inspected, repaired
and painted.
The rehab of your antiquated un-
derground sewer system will begin in
the next few weeks. A large portion of
our, system is original to the city and .
just worn out. Cave-ins and other fail-
ures occur almost daily. Some lines
will just need a good cleaning while
others will have to be dug up and re-
placed completely. Some lines will be
"slipped lined" or a liner placed inside
the existing lines. This project is be-
ing paid for with Community Rede-
velopment Agency money and the
$6.2 million grant and low interest
loan the city just received from DER
If we play our cards right, which we
are, we will be in line for an addition-
al $10 million, later in the summer.
Work began Monday on the second
phase of the rehabilitation of Old City
Hall. The work will return City Hall
to its original look on the south side
of the building. The floor in the large
bay will be raised as it was originally.
A handicapped ramp will be added to
the north side of the building. The
bids came in below what was project-
ed so other improvements will be able
to be made. Cost of the completed

hotline is open 24/7.

Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak your mind! How? By
calling the Suwannee Democrat Rant and Rave hotline. The hot-,
line never closes and is your way to let it out. You can let every-
one know how you feel -- as long as you express yourself in a re-
spectful way.
Note: In written entries to Rant and Rave, errors in spelling,
grammar or punctuation are those of the authors.

1st, keep printing Rants & Raves forever! 2nd, it is not "one
lonely person", but the vast majority of letters are for changing
this repressive law. 3rd, tea is an import,'US Sugar Corp. is
owned by Venezuelans who pollute the Everglades & diabetes
is an. epidemic in this country, especially in the South. It is' a
matter of freedom of choice & costs our residents MILLIONS
of $$ in lost investments, tax revenue, & jobs. Which choice
makes better sense??
" i m
I'm calling in regards to the person that complained about the
city fire department showing up at the car accident and doing
absolutely nothing for the patient except charging them for their
services. The citizens of Live Oak need to put their foot when it
comes to double taxation. I along with the other residents pay
taxes and deserve proper fire service. This not a r or rave but I
would like to ask the'people What exactly does the Live Oak
Fire Department do for the salaries they get? I witnessed on
several occasions passing by of guys playing basketball, wash-"
ing their own personal vehicles,,jogging and to top all that I
seen, one guy laying out in the sun in shorts and a tank top
while getting paid, you know, to be a fire service guy. On the
other hand I see the police department out and about working.
OOn several occasions I've seen the police officers working the
beat downtown and directing traffic, the person in charge of
them obviously expects productivity. Also I see city workers
out in the community doing work. Hats off to our dedicated city
employees and their productive supervisors. I would like to find
out how many calls the city firemen go on in a week or for that
matter a year. How much money is being dumped into the peo-
ple that is not productive? I'm sure the person who purchased
that high dollar SUV that just sits up in city hall does nothing.
It's probably the same person in charge of the Live Oak Fire
Department. What a waste of taxpayers' money.

My husband and I went to Sheryl's the other day for lunch. In
the parking lot were at least 6-8 vehicles with Department of
Corrections plates. Do we as taxpayers pay for those people to
drive those vehicles around town? I would think they would
only be used for Department business. Why can't they drive
their OWN cars, on their OWN time, with their OWN gas??

Would like to note that I find it funny that someone com-
plain about printing the rant and rave while using it. Obviously
you read it and write to it so why would the Democrat wish to
discontinue? I think it is a great way for the community to find
out what is going on in our area. Thank you for printing this
weekly!

I had the good fortune to be born and raised in Live Oak and
enjoy all the beautiful surrounding little towns in Suwannee
County, especially the enjoyment of Camp Suwannee, the
Suwannee River and the.beautiful springs to swim in as a kid.
The Navy has taken me away for the last 27 years and I have
lived in places that are as beautiful as Live Oak and also been
all over the world and seen .things that are beautiful and not so


beautiful. Recently my mama had a medical emergency and as
I knew would happen, her neighbors, fellow Church members,
friends and family stepped up to help her through this time. I
was able to come home, and no matter where I might currently
live, which is now in the Northeast, Live Oak will always be
home, to visit with'her and help her out. Every time I come
back to Live Oak I realize how lucky I was to have been raised
in such an idyllic community. Yes, there are things for people
to complain about, I do as well as the next person. But I think
if everyone really stepped back and took a moment to think
about how great it is for one to live in the greatest Country in
the world and also realize that living.in Live Oak is really not
as bad at some seem it to be and once again enjoy.the tranquil
lifestyle and that home town feeling that Suwannee County has
to offer, you would enjoy life so much more. Just a thought!

Let's see if my sad lonely mind got this right, we should all
have to drink tea grown in countries often hostile to us. We
should also censor the press so folks can't speak their minds
freely, which is already limited in this area. This is America, we
are still dying to defend our unique freedoms! The issue is not
alcohol, it's attitudes like this. I am not telling you what to
drink or read, but we should be able to choose, so spare me
your hypocrisy please. I personally can't stand sweet tea.

It is annoying when you are in the library and some patrons
seem to think that this is the place NOT only to socialize but to
bad mouth the local people and area. Saying such things as
"When we moved here it was like going back in time 120
years" or other comments to make it seem like they are some-
how above the native people of this area. .It was so annoying
that at least one man got up from his table, glared at the elderly
people and moved to another table muttering about them. They
were oblivious of how loud their conversation was, I could hear
them from three tables away and with headphones on. Maybe
they think it is okay for them to behave this way since the local
people here are beneath them or maybe they were brought up
without manners.

Forms Game



Plan at BES


I
David Campbell

By Camell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.coin
When Brapford Elemen-
tary SchoQl students return
in the fall, David Campbell,
will be ready to greet them
as their new principal..
Campbell returns to, BES
after coaching varsity foot-
ball and weightlifting at
Suwannee High School for
two years.
"I'm blessed and most
fortunate to come back to
my former position," he
said.
Campbell preceded for-
mer principal Carol Risk at
BES from 2005 to; ,2007
and was assistant principal
in 2004.' He said his return
has been a welcomed tran-
sition despite having never
taught elementary school
children.
*"The love from and for
younger kids comes natur-
al," Campbell said. ."It's
like a home. You have to
treat them like yotu would a
family--with' love, and at-
tention, making them feel
wanted and safe."
Campbell has been busy


New principal
set on raising
the bar
since June preparing to
make students feel right at
home, but says he hasn't .
done it all by himself.
"We've got a good facul-
ty," Campbell said. "I feel
confident in what this
group of prdfessinals can
do."
Campbell. has worked
with most BES faculty
members before and four
instructors are new this
year. Nonetheless, all are
on board toward success,
he said.
"Our whole game plan is
to look at all factors related
to the school and to do
what we can to raise the ed-
ucational achievement lev-
el of our students," he said.
"The beauty of this job is
you can't keep thinking
how you used to think."
Despite the schools'
state classification as a "C"
school in previous years,
Campbell said it's not all
about being an '"A" school
either.
, "It's about 'making
progress,'" he said.
Superintendent Jerry
Scarborough was pleased
with the decision to rehire
Campbell.
"David is a first-class in-
dividual and we're very ex-
cited to have him in the
school system,". Scarbor-
ough said. "We feel he's go-
ing to be the one to make
Branford an 'A' school."

After much anticipation and de-
bate, it's finally official. Branford
High School graduate Bradley Bul-
lock has signed a letter of intent and:
scholarship papers to play college
baseball and college rodeo at North-
western Oklahoma State University.
Bullock had been recruited by a
number of colleges, including
Southern Arkansas University, Val-
dosta State University, West Texas A
& M and Grove City, but finally
chose Northwestern Oklahoma.
"What attracted me to Northwest-
ern Oklahoma, was the coaching
staff and their willingness to allow,
me to pursue my dream playing col-
lege baseball and rodeo," said Bul-
lock. "When I walked into the


coach's office at Northwestern, both
head coaches, baseball coach Ryan
'Bay and rodeo coach Kolb, were sit-
ting at the desk waiting:on me with a
plan to help me achieve both goals,"
said Bullock.
According to Bullock, it is just as
important to consider the dreams of
the player and that's where the will-
ingness.of the coaching staff comes
into play, working together to
achieve those goals.
Bullock said he's not sure who's
more excited about going .to Okla-
homa, him or his roping horse,
"Cadillac."
Bullock was the starting quarter-
back for the Branford Bucs; MVP in
baseball three years in a row; state
finalist in track in the 400-relay as a


junior; and played varsity basketball
for two years. Bullock was recently
-awarded the "Matt Schwartz
Award," given to be the most out-
standing athlete for the year, as vot-
ed on by all the Branford coaches.'
Bullock has been involved in
rodeo all of his life and is currently a
calf roper in the Florida High School
Rodeo Association.
Bullock plans to pursue an Ag-
Business degree at Northwestern
Oklahoma and would like to thank
all of the coaches and teachers at
Branford High School for believing
in him. Bullock will leave behind his
orange and blue Buccaneer colors
and soon wear the "black and red"
Ranger Northwestern Oklahoma
uniform.


Local melon market season ends


By Camell Hawthorne, J.r
carhell.hawthorne@gaflnews. comr

Owner Adrian Land of
Land Watermelon Sales: in'
Branford said in just a few
days he'll stop receiving
loads of watermelons for
the season.
That means fewer open-


roofed school buses will be
seen traveling the local
streets piled high with sun-
ripened melons.
Land said his sale season
for watermelons started
back in May.
"We're all but done sell-
ing them for now," he said
Wednesday.


Down * the road,
shopowner Andrew Carter
of Rudy's Place in O'Brien
said he'll continue selling
melons throughout the
summer. Carter receives
many of his watermelons
from Land's market, but
also buys them at a market
in .Trenton.

Blistering heat sends folks flocking to the springs

By Carnell Hawthorne Jr
A hundred or so people flocked to Little River Springs
Wednesday afternoon in O'Brien to beat the near triple-
digit heat.
Folks youhg and old kept cool in the water. Families
took beach balls, floats, boats, rafts and fishing pools into
the water to have fun. Most left their beach .towels and
blankets on the shore nearby.
Little River Springs is free to the public. It's located P
about three miles north of Branford on CR 248.

Food for Thought

How Does God View Scripture?
What would we know about God's will for us
without the Bible? Not much! We know the Bible is
inspired. [II Tim. 3:16]. We know it is perfect
converting the soul [Psa. 19:7-14]. How does God
view the Scriptures?
1) He Views Them As PERFECT: v.7 Since it is
perfect, we do not need to add to it or take away
from it. Rev. 22:18-19
2) He Views Them As SURE: v.7 The word sure
means faithful. We can be confident when we read
and follow the Bible: It will make us wise!
3) He Views Them As RIGHT: v.8 The Bible is
absolute truth! When God speaks on a matter it is
always right.
4) He Views Them As PURE: v.8 The Scriptures
bring spiritual light into our lives. The Bible will
enlighten our hearts. It is through the Bible we are
made wise.
5) He Views Them As CLEAN: v.9 Jesus said we
are clean by the word He has spoken to us [Jn.
15:3]. We know the truth will set us free [Jn. 8:32].
6) He Views Them As RIGHTEOUS: v.9 His word
deserves to be valued and obeyed!

project is estimated to be $150,000. It
will be paid for with Community Rede-
velopment Agency dollars.
Bids are due next week for the side-
walk repair and replacement program.
Thousands of feet of sidewalk will be
replaced. This project targets unsafe
walkways. Handicapped ramps will be
upgraded or installed where there are
none. There is $95,000 budgeted for this
project The upgrades will be paid for
with Community Redevelopment
Agency monies. Only sidewalks in the
CRA district can be repaired with these
funds,
The sewer plant expansion is under-
way. Due to the fact that the prison used
future capacity of the plant that just re-
cently went on line,, expansion of the
plant is necessary. This is not a bad
thing with the hundreds of new jobs and
other business activities it will bring to
our Suwannee County community. This
project bas a price tag of $4.8 million.
These dollars will not complete the pro-
ject We will.go as far as the money al-
lows. A $3.4 million second phase is
ready when monies are available. We are
feverously searching for stimulus dollars
to complete this project.
The piping for the reuse line to the
prison is slowly making its way east to-
wards the prison. This line will provide
reclaimed water from the sewer plant to
the prison for laundry, flushing toilets
and irrigation. No cooking.or bathing.
This water will be available to other pro-
jects along the way. This project will
cost of $1.4 million. There is not enough
money to go all the way to the prison.
The line will be run as far as the money
allows. This project will be paid for with
dollars from the sale of the reclaimed
water.
The Sherwood Forest, K-Mart pond
storm water project is now complete.
Winderweedle should be completed this
week. These projects came with a price
tag of $294,000. Next, crews will be

Counicilmen you did not
listen to the residents on
the golf cart issue. You
should have voted no. We
can vote no too, for you
during election time!

I wonder why we have
sites that are inconvenient
to the Suwannee County
citizens; that only encour-
ages them to dump trash
along the road or on other
people's vacant land.

I don't understand the
open hours of the sites be-
ing while most people are
at their jobs, In fact, I
don't understand why in
today's world they are
locked at all. Cameras are
cheaper than County em-
ployees sitting in an air
conditioned shed watching
TV.

People can walk in, but
not drive in. Makes no
sense to me. It discour-
ages people from even dri-
ving to the site knowing
the vehicle gate will prob-. "
ably be closed. We have a
lot of elderly and handi-
capped people that can't
haul their trash through the
gate to a dumpster that is
probably full and they
have to go to the rear of
the site. I am sure that is
why a lot of trash is left at
the locked gate.
mI m
Even if you are not
handicapped it makes no
sense to have recycling at
the rear of the site. I am
sure most people find it
easier to throw the recy-
cling away knowing the
site is most probably


moving to the Walker Street,project.
This project is intended to relieve the
flooding during severe rain events at the
so called "duck pond" next to the Mid-
dle School as well as other areas around
the schooL Utilities will have to be relo-
cated to accommodate the piping and
drainage structures as well as expanding
the retention ponds. After the storm wa-
ter work is complete, we will begin on
the roadwork. Widening Walker and the :
realignment of Pinewood is planned.
Right of way has been acquired from ad-
jacent property owners and the school
district. This is a joint effort of the Flori-
da Department of Transportation,
Suwannee County, Suwannee school
district and the city. The city has
$200,000 budgeted this year. This pro-
ject is funded by storm water fees, mon-
ey set aside in this year's budget as well
as FDOT funds. The available money
will not cover the entire cost of the pro-
ject but again we will go as far as the
money allows and hopefully find more
next budget year.
The handicap improvements at Mil-
lennium Park are almost complete and
the handicap and security improvements
at City Hall are underway. This work
will bring the city into compliance with
the Americans With Disabilities Act. It
will also provide much needed space
and improved security in the building.
Price tag on this project was $88,430.
Money was set aside for these improve-
ments in this year's budget. Bids on this
project came in far below anticipated
costs..
As you can read, there are a lot of
good things going on in our city. These
much needed projects will greatly im-
prove your livability and safety, save
tons of money, prepare for future growth
by providing services needed by busi-
ness and industry that might be interest-
ed in ,coming to our area. Another good
thing is that much of the cost of these
improvements are being paid for with
other dollars rather than coming directly
out of your pocket. That's what we strive
for in developing strategies in getting
these projects accomplished. You are
lucky'to have a Mayor, Council and staff
that watch out for your best interest.

Are the waste sites;
locked to keep people
from stealing trash? They
can walk in if they need to
steal trash that bad. Are
the vehicle gates locked to
keep contractors from
dumping? Again a camera
solves that.

does OMI just do what
they want and then tell the

Can anyone tell me how
much our school board has

To the very educated in-
dividual's who write in
about the City of Live
Oak Fire Dept. If they
were so smart they would
see that there is no fire as-
sessment for the city. We
respond to calls lights and
sirens for a rapid re-
sponse. This level of re-
sponse is for the citizens,
seconds count. As for see-
ing firefighters jogging
and playing basketball,
we work out to stay in


ave


shape to do our job. It's
easy for people to point
fingers, and run there
mouth about stuff they
have no clue about. When
they need help they have
no problem with the job
we do. When did Suwan-
nee County get a fire mar-
shal??? Paul Haas is not a
fire marshal, he.is a fire
investigator. There is a
big difference between in-
vestigating a fire and
making an arrest. As far
as patient care on accident
scenes, that is Suwannee
County EMS's job. The
ISO rating in the city is a
4 hot 9 like in the county.
This saves every citizen
in the city and 5 miles out
of the. city, on there insur-
ance. A higher rating
means higher cost for in-
surance. People like to
call in and complain, at -
least have the guts to put
'your name. Let's see if
this makes publication.

Both crimes happened Sunday, a sheriffs

Authorities say the young male, a minor
whose name was not released, admitted
Monday that he pulled up to O'Brien Feed

broke the door window with a hammer.
The minor said he reached inside and un-
locked the door, but left the shop because

"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 I
when used in excess. Zinc poisoning (hyperzincemia), copper depletion, or copper
deficiency (hypocupremnia), and neuropathy (diseases of or malfunctions of the nerves or
nervous systemin), 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 ,f these questions, then you are probably using 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?

While many people believe that Father's Day is a holiday invented by the fine folks at Hallmark, it's not
so. The celebration of Dad's special day can most likely be credited to Mrs. John B. Dodd, of Washington
State, who first suggested the idea of the holiday in 1909.
Mrs. Dodd's father, civil war veteran William Smart, was widowed when his wife died in childbirth with
their sixth child. Despite the obvious hardships, Mr. Smart proceeded to raise the newborn along with his
five other children, by himself. . .


It wasn't until Sonora Dodd became an adult that she realized the
strength and selflessness her father had shown in raising his children
as a single parent. The original date chosen for the holiday was June
5, Mr. Smart's birthday, however the celebration was postponed until
June 19, the third Sunday in June, because there was not enough time
to prepare.
At about the same time in various towns and cities across America
L-WOWother people were beginning to celebrate a Father's Day. Some
I"; "' accounts credit Mrs. Charles Clayton of West Virginia, as the founder
of Father's Day, although most histories give credit to Mrs. Dodd.
In early times, wearing flowers was a traditional way of celebrating Father's Day. Mrs. Dodd favored the red rose to
honor a father still living, while a white flower honored a deceased dad. J.H. Berringer, who also held Father's Day
celebrations in Washington State as early as 1912, chose a white lilac as the Father's Day Flower.
In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea of a national Father's Day, but it never became'official until
1966 when President Lyndon Johnson signed the presidential proclamation that set aside the 3rd Sunday of June as
Father's Day.:


What Makes

ADad
God took the strength of
a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the
eagle's flight,.
The joy of a morning
in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined
these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it...Dad.

I could write about the Griffey or the

Like most kids I didn't even know my par-

was even older. Dad only had two pictures
of his youth, one a baby picture the other,
him and his baseball team at PS 47.1 I re-
member having a game of catch with him as
a youth, and he was throwing sidearm, and a
pitch he called a "down shoot." That is what
a curveball used be.
My father's athletic prowess wasn't in
baseball, however. When boxing was the
king of athletics he was a pugilist. He fought
as a welterweight with a 28-2 amateur
record, a 2-1 professional career and a 2-0
military career. He was a Golden Gloves fi-
nalist in New York City in 1933 at the ten-
der age of 16. He fought under the name
Kid Daniels and fought under an alias when
boxing pro, so as not to lose his amateur sta-
tus. One of his losses and only KO came on
his second fight of the night.
Across town on a subway to fight after a
fight, you don't hear too much of that today.
The pro matches paid $12 to the winner and
$8 to the loser. A great deal of money during
the depression. He pawned his Golden
Glove watches to feed his brothers and sis-
ter. He was part of a single parent family be-
fore it was commonplace. The single parent
being his dad.
The fact that he could box earned him
sergeant stripes during WW H. He defeated
the navy's pacific welterweight champ in an
exhibition. He was afraid of nothing. Boxing
wasn't why he was fearless but it helped. It's
the holiday before father's day that made
him fearless, June 6th the anniversary of D-
day. Dad was on a team called the Scream-
ing Eagles also known as the
101st airborne. Of the 6600 casualties
2500 were Airborne. "Some get Utah some
get Omaha" he gotOmaha the bloodiest
beach of D-day. Only 6 men in my father's
immediate outfit of 120 lived. He didn't tell
me, I found it in a book. He told me about
being a glider trooper, being a parachutist,
he even taught me how to shoot a gun and
throw a punch. He didn't tell me about the
Germans he killed, the Silver Star, the Pur-
ple Heart or the fallen he had buried. Heroes
don't tell those stories, history does.
All heroes don't have to have the word
sports in front of them, my didn't.

The trials and joys of fatherhood


By Rev. James L. Snyder
Once again, another
year has gone by and we
are celebrating another Fa-
ther's Day. I am all for cel-
ebrating it with lots of
gusto. I am not saying this
just because I am a father,
I'm saying this because I
like living life with lots of
gusto.
I would not complain
about this, because no-.
body would listen to my
complaining anyway, but
fathers really do not get
their due share of praise
and recognition. Father's
Day is ndt quite like
Mother's Day where peo-
ple go out and spend bil-.
lions of dollars for moth-
ers, usually out of dad's
wallet. By the time Fa-
ther's Day comes around


that wallet has been
picked bare.
If we are going.to be
fair about this business of
celebrating Mother's Day
and Father's Day the two
events should be separated
by more than 30 days. My
recommendation is, one
year we celebrate Father's
Day and the next year we
celebrate Mother's Day.
That would be fair. No-
body has ever put into
practice any suggestion of
mine in the past so I am
confident nobody will pay
attention to this Wonderful
plan that I have. But it
does have merit.
A more serene atmos-
phere surrounds Father's
Day. The reason is that the
entire hullabaloo about
Mother's Day has corn-


pletely exhausted people,
particularly children, not
to mention the "out-of-
funds" situation.
Fathers do have many
trials and tribulations they
must go through. It is not
easy being a-father, be-
-lieve me. It carries with it
not only a lot of responsi-
bility but also a lot of
right down, honest-to-
goodness, hard work.
Fathers are not weak
like mothers. For example,
fathers do not need lots of
gifts and everybody telling
them how good they are..
We know how good we
are. Mothers take a lot of
credit along this line, but
it is the fathers that have
extended that credit line.
This is.the reason why
Mother's say to their chil-


Football vs. worship


What's the difference?


.By Fr. Don Wilson
Faith in Christ
Anglican Church
When you go to church,
do you go to worship
Almighty God or do you
go because you have noth- .
ing better to do on a Sun-
day morning? According
to the dictionary, the
meaning of worship is this:
"The reverent love and de-:
voti�p-accorded a deity, an
idol, or a sacred object.
The ceremonies, prayers,
or other religious forms by.
which this love is ex-
pressed. Ardent devotion;
adoration."
The word ardent means
... glowing, intense, pas-
sionate.
Some people think that
just by going fo church
they are worshiping.
They listen to the
preaching, the singing, and
the praying and then they,
go home thinking that they
have worshiped. True wor-
ship is both an attitude and
an activity.
It is a response of the
soul to God's act of reveal-
ing himself like an - .-
Epiphany.
True worship ... is an
experience in which peo-
ple receive what God has
to give and simultaneously
give what they are and
have to God.
Worship is an inner pos-
ture of the soul rather than
an action or posture of the
body. True worship will
bring a consciousness of
sin that leads to confession
and to the joy of cleansing
(Isa. 6:1-7).
If we are to be a distinc-
tive people of God, called
out and separated from the
world, then we need to un-
derstand the conditions


that lead to a fruitful wor-
ship experience.
There must be Adequate
preparation if worship is to
be beneficial.
In St. Paul's letter to the
Corinthian church he ad-
vised them as to their re-
sponsibility before they
partook of communion. In
I Corinthians 11:28 Paul
told them, "28 But let a
man examine himself, and
so let.him eat of the bread
and drink pf the cup.
.We need to prepare our
hearts and minds before
arriving at church if we are
to experience the greatest
possible blessing.
You will not automati-
cally enter God's presence
by walking through the
door of a church.
Although you willre-/ ,
ceive.a loving greeting and.
be truly blessed just by be- .
ing here in the family of
God. Perhaps the most im-
portant part of your
preparing for public wor-
ship is your private wor-
ship. , '
So what's the difference
between a football game.
and worship?
In a football game there
is ardent devotion.
Take the Superbowl -
did ryou sit and passively
and watch the game quiet-
ly without aany emotion or
connection at all ? Did you
look around the room and
slowly fall asleep or do
you get into it? Did you
connect with the players,
the team, the plays? Did
you cheer them on? You
.Bet, you did. Why I bet
you could almost smell the
prowyd and hear the turf or
I mean smell the turf and
hear the crowds...
When the Word of God
is read, do you let God
speak to your heart?
When a prayer is
prayed, do you also pray?
Do you sing with the con-
gregation and let .the songs
speak to your heart?
Is worship a time where
you can really feel the
brush of angels wings and
see the glory on each face?
Part of worship is your
wholesome participation in


it. And finally, when you
truly worship, you will
have a sense of urgency
and service toward others.
If Wal-Mart were giving
away $20 dollar bills, you
would tell everyone about
it, wouldn't you?
But, when you know
where someone can get �
real forgiveness and have a
relationship with the God
of the universe, do'you tell
anybody?
Worship the Lord in
Spirit and in Truth, for the
Father seeketh such to
Worship Him.

dren when the children are
in trouble, "Just wait until
your father gets home."
Every father, exhausted'
from the day's work, and
anxious to relax for the
evening, has to jump this
hurdle upon arriving at his
castle.
This has put into chil-
dren the dread of their fa-
ther coming home.
I insist that this is not
fair. It is a ploy of mothers
to make out fathers to be
the bad guy while they
reign as the good parent. '
All they are thinking
about, throughout the en-
tire year, is their Mother's
- Day present.
In spite of this, there is a'
positive side thal every fa-
ther revels in. In fact, if the
truth were known, no fa-
ther wants to have a day
set aside for his recogni-
tion. The only reason we
have Father's Day is be-
cause we have Mother's
Day and somebody some-
where along the line
thought that was not fair.
However, fathers are at
their best when people do
not realize the contribution
they make. Every father is
confident in his own skin
so that he does not always
need reinforcement from
the outside. He knows
what his job is, and goes
about doing it the best he
knows how. He needs no
bells or whistles to tell him
that he is doing a good job.
Down deep inside of him,
there is the satisfaction of-
knowing that he is doing
the best he can for his fam-
ily. That is his reward.
The best thing the father
does are those things that
nobody recognizes.
The faithful father goes
to work day after. day earn-
ing a living for his family.
When he gets his pay check
at the end of the %% eek. he t

looks at it and knows that
most of that belongs to his
family. By the time the
bills are paid and the chil-
dren have had a little bit of
entertainment, there is pre-
cious little left over for a
father's indulgence.
Nobody seems to notice
this and every good father
smiles because he is doing
what is right for. his fami-
ly. Nobody ever shakes
his hand and says, '"Good
job, dad." And the thing
about it is, no father ex-
pects it.
. On Father's Day, the
good father will celebrate
the day by taking his fami-
ly out to a restaurant. The
month prior, the family
took mother to the restau-
rant anid father was gra-
cious enough to pick up
the bill plus the tip. A
month later, they are at the
same restaurant only this
time they are celebrating
Father's Day and after the
meal, dad picks up the bill
plus the tip. Nobody seems
to notice.
However, the smile on
the father's face says it all.
A good father is one who
is taken for granted..A
good father is one whose

work goes on unnoticed.
In fact, the only time the
good father is noticed is
after he is gone.
There is one thing fa-
thers do and never get due
credit. It is probably the
most important aspect of
the family and yet nobody-
recognizes it or ever
thinks to say, "thank you."
The most important
thing the father does for
his family is to pick out
the world's best mother for
his -children.,
The good father goes by
what the Bible says. "And,
ye fathers, provoke not
your children to wrath: but
bring them up in the nur-
ture and admonition of the
Lord." (Ephesians 6:4
KJV).
It is tough being a father
but itf is ,the greatest job in
the world.

While most people take
shelter from a storm, a TO..
handful of others try to get H E C K
as close as possible-espe-
cially when it involves the H. ,
.most violent, freakish
windstorms on Earth. The O T
United States has more
tornadoes than any place , I '
in the world, and "tornado
hunters" are passionate in .
their quest to learn more
about them. Come along
for the windy ride with
these wild tales of close -
encounters with funnel
clouds, a look-at the men
who chasi them and an '
explanation of what makes
tornadoes so destructive, deadly... and fascinating.

One of 01' Blue Eye's
most sought-after live

now, has finally been re-
discovered, re-mastered
and released by his es-
iate. Taped in 1986 in
front of a revved-up
"homecoming" crowd
inside New Jersey's legendary Meadowlands arena, it's a, tu e-
do-smooth, jazzy-snazzy, swagger through "You' Make Me Feel
So Young," "New York, New York," "ForOnce in My Life," and
j16 other tunes spanming a,.career that by then had stretched
across four decades----a Sinatra smorgasldrd!'

created by legendary producer Norman Lear, whose master's

To Honor Our Fathers

When we call God "our Father in heaven" we are
S honoring both God and our earthly fathers by calling
to mind the virtues proper to a good father. A good
father is first and foremost someone who loves
his wife and his children. He manifests
this love by providing materially for
them, by protecting them, and by
S. disciplining and teaching his
children. There may be times when
he cannot always do these things.
Good, hardworking men
SIsonretimes lose their jobs through no
fault of their own, or find themselves
in situations where they cannot
4' protect their families. But even then, a
good father will exemplify certain
virtues, such as steadfastness or
persistence in seeking re-employment, or
he will show bravery in the face of danger or uncertainty. A good
father will be brave, but never reckless or foolhardy, realizing that
his life is precious to his family. A good father will also manifest
temperance and moderation in the pursuit of pleasures, thereby
teaching his children to enjoy life, but also to delay gratification when
necessary. A good father is a model of responsibility and
dependability, of loyalty and honor. Our earthly fathers, like our
Heavenly Father, are mighty fortresses under whose protection we
withstand the torrents of the world's weather, and yet they are also
capable of tenderness and loving kindness. Thanks are due to God
for giving us such loving fathers and also to our fathers for giving us
such good examples of the attributes of God.


As a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those
who fear him.

New K.J.V. Psalm 103:13

The condition of the lost



*(And they don't even know it!)


* . B

By David H. Matier
Doctor of pastoral
counseling
dmatier@windstream.net

Paul provides a graphic
picture of the lost - those
who have not received
Christ as their personal
Saviour in Ephesians
4:17-19 when he writes,
"This I say therefore,'and.
testify in the Lord, that ye
henceforth walk not as
other Gentiles [used by


Paul as an example of
those who are lost, haven't
put their faith in Christ for
eternal salvation] walk, in
the vanity of their mind.
Having the .understanding
darkened, being alienated
from the life of God
through the ignorance that
is in them, because of the
blindness of their heart:
Who being past feeling
have given themselves
over unto lasciviousness,
to work all uncleanness
with greediness." He first
tells us of the "vanity of
their minds," that their
plans are useless; their 'de-
sires are unachievable.


They are self-seeking and
in this passage he, Paul, is
warning the Christians
about becoming like them
in their Christian life.
The understanding of
the lost person has been:
darkened (Ephesians
4:18).. Man can not un-
derstand the simplicity of
the Gospel. His mind
must be opened up by a
supernatural enlighten-
ment. Christ opened up
the understanding of the
disciples on the Emmaus
Road. They did not know
who' Jesus was until He
revealed Himself (Luke
24:45-48). The lost can

not understand.why you
attend church and/or en-
joy preaching - "For the
preaching of the cross is
to them that perish fool-
ishness; but unto us which
are saved it is the power
of God," (I Corinthians
,1:18). Your lost acquain-
tances just don't under-
stand why you don't enjoy
what they enjoy (I Peter
4:4) - and make negative
remarks about you be-
cause you don't go along
with their plans anymore;
They remain alienated
from God through igno-
rance and blindness (Eph-
esians ,4:18). Because of
the rejection of Christ
they have forfeited their
life with God, given away
their eternal life! The per-
son who rejects Christ has


no knowledge because of
his refusal to seek Him
due to the hardness of his
heart. (Hebrews 3:7-12).
As time goes on some
will even have their con-
sciences seared - their
consciences will become
harder-and-harder (I Tim-
othy 4:2)!
Finally, you will notice
in the text, Ephesians
4:17-19, that it come to
those with Christ, "Who
being past feeling have
given themselves over
unto lasciviousness, to
work all uncleanness with
greediness," (Ephesians
4:19). The lost person is.
one who has put away
pain - natural affection -
and has given himself
over to all sorts of excess-
es with and appetite for


more! They don't care
about ethics. James D.
Kennedy said, "In their
haste to get rid of God,
the people have lost the
essential values that come
only through faith."

Please note this de-
scription of those without
Christ - whether it be
you, you children, you
parents, friends, grand-
children or whoever - you
need to get concerned! If
you aren't saved contact
me at the email address
given above or your own
pastor - or any PASTOR
THAT BELIEVES THE
BIBLE and if you are
saved be careful to carry
the message to those
around you (Matthew
28:19, 20).

DAt ( UWNE EORT/IEOKFIAYJN 9 09t'J- -- --


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 to 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-
dented! 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
thinks I am over reacting.
What do you guys think I shoulddo?

Cash:' First off, you shouldn't offer
to loan her your car. It may not come
back in the same condition.
Carry: Most tlew drivers, even as
adults, don't realize how inexperienced


e_ -


S ,::. a14/09
02009The Classified Guys*


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

It seems like everyone on the road
today could use a brushing up on his or
her driving skills. Recently GMAC
Insurance released the results of their
2009 National Drivers Test. The survey
of more than 5000 drivers over all 50
states found some 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 yop 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!"
