 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.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: Is it true that scientists think we may be
able to grow replacement teeth?
A: The science of dentistry continues to
advance. And it is indeed true that in the
future it may be possible to grow
replacement teeth using adultstem cells
that are abundant in a person's wisdom
teeth and in baby teeth. This, is the opinion
of Pamela Robey, chief of the Craniofacial
and Skeletal Diseases Branch of the
National Institute of Dental and
Craniofacial Research, which is part of the
SNational Institutes of Health.
The theory is that a tooth root could not be
created using a person's stem cells that
have been stored. And once there's a living
root, dentists could easily put a crown
around it. Some experts believe that within
a few years dentists will treat periodontal
disease with degeneration by using stem
cells to create hard and soft tissue. They
would be able to remove a tooth that's


about to fall out and reconnect it firmly
using regenerated tissue. Regenerating an
entire tooth - from enamel to nerves - is no
easy matter. But even that, the experts say,
could happen within five to ten years. Talk
with your dentist about the advances that
are being made in the field and how they
might affect your choices today.

The K9 Professor


By Jinny Wilson


Pam Taylor is
the K9 Professor.'
She poses with ' ,'- -
these four canine .' 1 I
students. The , _.
photo op
captures the fun .
of an obedience
training class in
Wellborn. It
happened at
Andrews Square
on the first Saturday after Blueberry
Festival weekend in our hometown. Six
easy lessons with homework, and if you
and your dog pass the test, you both
graduate, becoming a socially acceptable
pair! The Huffman and Gilmore saleslady
congratulated me for signing up. All
creatures great and small need parameters,
said she, and I agree.
Ray Varnackas holds the leash for a six-
month-old black and white dalmatian
named Cassie. Smiles of pride were
shared all around the dog owners' circle
when Cassie surprised her people with
perfect performance after they had said,
"Cassie is stubborn."
Barbara Smith stands between Ray and
his wife, Margaret Varnackas. The towel


over Margaret's shoulder was sometimes
atop her head, and occasionally it was
used to mop her brow. The obedience
lesson practice session moved about
according to the hot sun's journey across
summer skies. Dogs and their people
went from shady spot to shady spot.
Barbara Smith's dog is Daisy. She was
the only black and white puppy amongst
10 puppies born in January. She is a look-
alike to Freckles, the older dog at Smith's
house. Daisy climbs all the way into her
water dish when she is home because the
Smiths have improvised a watering hole
out of a retired mobile home bathtub that
was available for this recycled use. The
portable drinking dish Barbara brought for
Daisy was too small for bathing but Daisy
tried anyway.
The golden retriever is Barbara Clark's
Willow, a perfect name. She is beautiful
and willowy, a quick learner, and may be a
service dog one day.
The black Labrador is Patience Wilson,
of whom the K9 Professor says, "This dog
understands more than she lets on." Like
my Spanish speaking friend, Carmen, I
added. The "pawsitive results" that .inny
Wilson and Carmen Hernandez want for
Patience Dog are appropriate behavior on

a leash and also less enthusiastic welcoming of guests
into our home (no jumping). Daisy Smith loaned
Patience Wilson a training collar for the day. It did
help get the message across from Jinny to Patience.
The owner "pops" (short tug) when the slack in the
leash disappears. We did some work with "sit" and
"stay" too, but the command I'm challenged to enforce
is "leave it." This is where the dog learns to choose to
turh away from an activity she wants to do, like eat a
treat. Is that fair? Pam Taylor says dogs need to learn
to make choices! Didn't I just finish teaching four
offspring and then their nine offspring (our
grandchildren) about choices? I still pray that their
choices will be prudent and Godly!
This octogenarian rejoiced just last week at Cousins
Camp '09 where our family, which has grown to
number 25 good people, were touching hearts on a
summer vacation weekend. I believe a Great Granny is
no longer involved with their choices. Time to coast, I
thought. Haye I just been demoted back to "START"
on account of a dog named Patience? Just the same,
God brought Patience into our lives during husband
Jack's time with hospice and it was."just right." Jack
always coveted local folks who had a big dog riding in
their pickup, either in the truck bed or along side the
driver, up front. It happened for him in the truck and
also in the golf cart. The two of them rode around
Wellborn and around our acreage just as happy as if
they had good sense.
Pastor Jim Messer's (Wellborn Methodist) advice to
me is, "Go forward." Life does keep on being a.
wonder to appreciate. Betsy Billups' wisdom to share
with you was put to good use when my beloved family
of adults with widely differing political stances
convened in June. Betsy said, "Find what you have in
common." It was love. Thetwo-way street of God's
love, given and received, and flowing around the
family circle covered everything else. Glory be!
"Dog Days of Summer" is the name of a day set
aside to celebrate dogs. It is July 18 at Stephen Foster
Folk Cultural Center State Park in nearby White
Springs. Pam Taylor, the K9 Professor, will be there
and promises a parade of orphan doggies whose T-
shirts say, "PleaSe adopt me." .The foreshadowing
inspires me and my dog to do our homework and get
ready to enjoy the day together.

Treatment for this Type of Hepatitis
Autoimmune hepatitis is an uncommon condition-that may occur in
response to certain triggering factors in susceptible persons, in
which the body's immune system actually attacks the liver.
Symptoms include fatigue, itching, nausea, vomiting, and mental
confusion. Jaundice, or yellowing of the skin, may also indicate
hepatitis. A variety of triggers may lead to this type of hepatitis,
including genetics, infections, and some medications. Acute
hepatitis A, hepatitis B, measles, and Epstein-Barr virus all may lead
to autoimmune hepatitis. An overdose of acetaminophen (Tylenol)
may lead to liver failure. Methyldopa (Aldomet), diclofenac
(Voltaren), and atorvastatin (Lipitor) may lead to autoimmune
hepatitis in susceptible persons.
Prednisone, a corticosteroid, may be prescribed to suppress the
immune system and decrease the progression of hepatitis.
Prednisone is typically prescribed at a high dose at first, and then
decreased to a lower dose to control signs and symptoms over the
long term. Side effects from long-term Prednisone may include
diabetes, osteoporosis, and high blood pressure. Azathioprine
(Imuran) may be used with prednisone to allow for a lower dose of
prednisone and fewer side effects. A liver transplant is also an option
for persons who do not respond to prescription medications. 529855-F

OPINION


Getting in


touch with


inner coyote

A friend of mine once said he was -.
born 200 years too late. He said he .
would have loved to have been a fron-
tiersman. Of course that perspective
came from the front'seat of a bass .
boat that also had a cooler of beer and -'"
plenty of Deep Woods Off.
I thought about that comment the
other night,as I watched "Quigley I
Down Under" once again. The villain, Dwain Walden
an Australian sheep rancher, ro-
manced that he was a gunfighter in.
Dodee City, not a-sheepherder in the Northern Territory.
He said, "Some men think they were born in the
wrong century. I think I was born on the wrong. conti-
nent." And seconds later, Quigley shot him and two of
his employees dead as Caesar because they misunder-
stood that when Quigley said he didn't have any use for
the Army Colt revolver, he didn't mean that he didn't
know how to use one. So one has to be careful with the
wording ... like when you're getting married, make sure
that the phrasing "I do" doesn't sound like a question.
And so it happens that some people sometimes ex-
press that they were born in the wrong time and place.
Some even feel they were born into the wrong sex.
Last night I was watching the Discovery Channel,
and there's a fellow in Atlanta who thinks he was born
into the wrong species. He thinks he's a coyote in a
man's body.
Now the American Indians have this thing called
"shape shifting" where they get in spirit with their ani-
mal brethren. They howl at the moon and "wade like a
crane," but in the morning, they go back to being Indi-
ans.
This fellow in Atlanta said he is depressed because
he's not really a coyote. He even changed his first name
to Coyote. And he sounded really serious.
Maybe his sadness comes from the fact that they can
do sex change operations, but they can't do species
change operations. A Democrat can become a Republi-
can overnight, but that's only a metaphorical or poetic.
shift from a donkey to an elephant. And it generally in-
volves perpetuation in office.
This coyote fellow spoke intelligently. What.I mean
is, he wasn't like Nugene Ledbetter who wanted to be a
log truck when he grew up. According to the late Jerry
Clower, Nugene would run around the yard backfiring
and choking down in the mud. He probably ripped off a
hip pocket to make it look like a fender dragging.
One time I saw Barbara Walters interviewing some-
one, and she asked him if he was a tree, what kind of
tree would he be? I don't think people actually sit
around and decide what kind of tree they would be in
case they are asked by Barbara. If she asked me that, I
don't think I could give her a species right off. I would,
however, not.want to be one growing in the Amazon,
given that thousands of acres of forests fall to the chain
saw each week. Ouch!
* So I thought about what it would be like to have been
born 200 years ago. And I shuddered. I would have
died of appendicitis at the age of 13. I came close in
1960, even with modern medicine. Dr. Sydney Hancock
said in another hour I would have been shaking hands
with Saint Peter. That's a shocking statement to a boy
of 13. But at least I'm glad he had me in good company.

OPINION


Vicious academic liberals


Ward Connerly, former -------7
University of California Re- 941_'i�
gent, has an article, "Study, MV
Study, Study -- A Bad Ca- .' g
reer Move" in the June 2,-
2009 edition of Minding the
Campus (www.mindingthe-
campus.com) that should
raise any decent American's �
level of disgust for what's
routinely practiced at most BY WALT1
of our universities. Mr. Con-
nerly tells of a conversation he had with a high-
ranking UJC administrator about a proposal that the
administrator was developing to increase campus di-
versity. Connerly asked the administrator why he
considered it important to tinker with admissions in-
stead of just letting the chips fall where they may.
His response was that that unless the university took
steps to "guide" admissions decisions,-the Universi-
ty of California campuses would be dominated by
Asians. When Connerly asked, "What would be
wrong with that?", the UC administrator told him
that Asians are. "too dull -- they study, study, study."
Then hesaid to Connerly, "If you ever say I said
this, I will have to deny it." Connerly did not reveal
the administrator's name. It would not have done
,any good because it's part of a diversity vision
shared by most college administrators.
With the enactment of California's Propqsition
209 in 1996, outlawing racial discrimination in col-
lege admissions, Asian enrollment at UC campuses
has skyrocketed. UC Berkeley student body is 42
percent Asian students; UC Irvine 55 percent; UC
Riverside 43 percent; and UCLA 38 percent. Asian
student enrollment on all nine UC campuses is over
40 percent. That's in a state where the Asian popula-
tion is about 13 percent. When there are policies
that emphasize and reward academic achievement,
Asians excel. College officials and others who are
proponents of "diversity" and equal representation
find that outcome offensive.
To deal with the Asian
"menace," the UC Regents
have proposed, starting in * ' G 0
2010, that no longer will '
the top 12.5 percent.of stu- -
dents based on statewide
performance be automati-
cally admitted. Students
won't have to take SAT -
subject matter tests. Grades.
and test scores will no
longer weigh so heavily in 0
admission decisions. This
is simply gross racial dis-
crimination against those
"dull" Asian students who
"study, study, study" in fa-.
vor of "interesting" black,

white and Hispanic students
who don't "study, study,
study."
This is truly evil and
would be readily condemned
as such if applied to other ar-
eas lacking in diversity. With
blacks making up about 80
percent of professional bas-
ketball players, there is little
or no diversity in profession-
al basketball. Even at col-


lege-level basketball, it is not at all unusual to watch
two teams playing and there not being a single
white player on the court, much less a Chinese or
Japanese player. I can think of several rule changes
that might increase racial diversity in professional
and college basketball. How about eliminating slam-
dunks and disallowing three-point shots? Restrict
dribbling? Lower the basket's height? These and
other rule changes would take away the "unfair" ad-
vantage that black players appear to have and create
greater basketball diversity. But wouldn't diversity
so achieved be despicable? If you answer yes, why
would it be any less so when it's used to fulfill
somebody's vision of college diversity?
Ward Connerly ends his article saying, "There is
one truth that is universally applicable in the era of
'diversity,' especially in American universities: an
absolute unwillingness to accept the verdict of col-
orblind policies." Hypocrisy is part and parcel of the
liberal academic elite. But the American people,
who fund universities either as parents, donors or
taxpayers, should not accept this evilness and there's
a good way to stop it -- cut off the funding to racial-
ly discriminating colleges and universities.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR


To the Editor:

Is the question of whether Suwannee County should
remain "dry" really so important that it needs to be
tackled now? Without a doubt, it will be a divisive is-
sue, resulting in the expenditure of time, energy and
money to resolve a matter of only marginal, concern to
most CEOs.
Yes, allowing alcohol sales locally might create a few
additional minimum wage jobs and some land sale op-
portunities for those owning commercially zoned prop-
erty. I doubt however, many business owners or their
chief -executives would be deterred from locating in
Suwannee County simply because it's "dry."
Of far greater concern to most would be locating in a


community where education is all too often viewed as
optional ... where the Central Business District is on
life-support ... where countywide fire protection re-'
mains heavily dependent on part-time volunteers ... or
where so many residents seem to view the nearest
dump as "outside the car window."
,The Suwannee Democrat labeled the dry/wet debate;
"The elephant in the room." I would suggest it is much
more like a flea bite on an elephant's rump and to
scratch it now would only inflame it to the point that it
precludes many of us from working together to address
far more critical issues.

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston @ gaflnews. comr
Hatch Park, Jenkins Park, Ivey
Memorial Park and the town of
Branford will all receive improve-
ments in the coming months thanks
to state grants and a grant from The
Florida Fish and Wildlife Commis-
sion.
The town has received the Florida
Recreation Development Assistance
Program grant. According to Town


Clerk Donna Hardin, this grant will
be used at Hatch Park to. improve
the playground and add equipment,
for a new volley ball court, refur-
bishing the T-ball field, and im-
proving the basketball and tennis
courts.
At Jenkins Park, a new pavilion.
will be built and the entire park will
be fenced in. A new playground and
basketball court are also in the
works for the park.
The north boat ramp at Ivey


Memorial Park is planned to receive
improvements and restoration as
soon as river waters recede. These
improvement are sponsored by a
grant from the Florida Boating Im-
provement Program with The Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Commission.
Tuesday town officials had a pre-
construction meeting to discuss the
Community Block Development
Grant. This grant will be used to
pave No-Name Road and for Sewer
Plant improvements.

* DEET - When the po-
tential exists for exposure
to mosquitoes, repellents
containing up to 30 per-
cent DEET (N,N-diethyl-
meta-toluamide) are rec-
ommended. Other effec-
tive mosquito repellents
include picaridin, oil of

Some effective repel-
lants are DEET (N,N-di-

Reports allege Bloom stat-

there's nothing you can do
about it," and "you're going
to see the inside of your
stomach."
Reports further state that
. on Wednesday at around

say the informant and his
family, including his chil-
dren, were inside the vehi-

to reports.
Sheriff Tony Cameron

fy Cody Webb GAM ETI ME challenging and

with me when I say an awesome
that I'm a huge music band, they've
fan. They'll also been around for
agree when I say that years and
I used to be a huge they've
fan of Guitar Hero spawned many
until the third game I hits. Neversoft
came out Once they did a great job
started releasing new games of compiling Metallica's
on a daily basis, my interest more famous songs, along
in the series went further and with other a few other bands
further down the drain. That for good measure. Make no
is, until I had a chance to mistake, though: the *
play Guitar Hero: Metallica. Metallica songs take center
Fans of Guitar.Hero and stage here.
Rock Band have always From their fast songs, like
clamored for more of "Hit the Lights" and
Metallica's songs, because "Whiplash," to some of their
they were usually the most slower hits, looking at you


"Fade to Black," these songs
are an absolute blast to play.
But the songs wouldn't be as
fun to play if the characters
playing them weren't fitting,
right? Neversoft actually mo-
capped (motion captured)
Metallica, resulting in the
best character models in any
Guitar Hero game to date.
They look and move
realistically so it is almost
like watching a concert.
Sadly, the other characters
suffer a bit because of the
improved Metallica. They
use generic moves and
occasionally you'll notice
something isn't quite right
with how they're moving.
It's not too big of a bad
thing, though, it's just
something they could have
fixed. At least you only see
the other characters when


you're not playing a
Metallica song. Little
touches abound when
Metallica takes the stage,
though: like the way the
orchestra appears when you
play "No Leaf Clover."
The gameplay has been
changed a little bit from past
Guitar Hero games; players
can pay 20 bucks to buy a
second drum pedal. You'll
only get any real use out of
this if you enjoy playing on
the super-hard "Expert +"
mode. One of my favorite
new innovations is how
they've added a new note to
the bass. It's a big purple bar
that occasionally appears and
all you have to do is strum it,
resulting in the character
thumping the bass, so to
speak. It helps to immerse,
you further into the


gameplay, in my opinion.
The folks at Neversoft also
revamped the career mode;
now players unlock new
songs and venues by earning
stars from playing songs.
This means that you can play
through the easier songs over
and over to unlock the harder
ones, if that's how you like
to advance. All the songs are
unlocked in Quickplay mode
from the outset, allowing
you to jump into whatever
song you like the most as
soon as you load the disc!
They've finally mastered
the difficulty curve, meaning
no more messes like GH3's
"Hard" mode. These songs
are fun to play on any
difficulty, especially if you
try them on Expert.
Neversoft also added a lot of
"fan food," in the form of


behind-the-scenes videos and'
"pop-up facts" for every
song! So when you're not
shredding along to their
music, you can learn more
about the band and their long
career.
I certainly hope that
Neversoft keeps up with this
kind of music-game
goodness; if they do, the
Guitar Hero series could
very well rival the Rock
Band games. Of course,
there are still improvements
to be made, like with the
custom characters, but so far
they've been improving
more and more with each
game. I'll give Guitar Hero:
Metallica an A, and anybody
who is a Metallica fan, heck,
anybody who is a fan of
good music, should give this
one a shot!

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Chasing a unicorn

To quote Captain oSp brt ob t
Barbossa, "When p ab0
you are the last of By Tom Daniels
something, by and
by soon there will
be none." Teddy Ballgame, Terrible Ted, The
Kid, The Splendid Splinter and The Thumper
all nicknames for Ted Williams. Known for
many things but more than ever as the last
man to hit .400 (.406 to be exact). Williams
attained this feat in 1941, a mere 68 years ago.
Since Williams' feat we have seen the likes of Aaron, Mays,
Mantle, DiMaggio and Bonds but none even challenged.
Pure hitters such as Carew, Rose, Brett and Gwynn all fell
short of the magic number .400. Terrible Ted won six batting
title during his career, batting .388 at the age of 40. Williams
was also the last man to win two Triple Crowns, in 1942 and
1947. In'1949 he missed the prize by less then .001 percentage
points. Since then there-have been three Triple Crown winners,
Mantle, Frank Robinson and Carl Yastrzemski. It has been 42
years since the last winner.

The Florida Park Service will
implement a fee increase beginning
Wednesday, July 1, in conjunction with
the state's fiscal calendar.
As the first fee update in five years,
additional state park user fees will
supplement current revenue sources used
to maintain the state's valuable natural and
cultural resources within Florida's 160
state parks. Nearly half of the $81 million
used to operate the state park system is
raised from entrance and usage fees. Some
of the most common fees that will change
include:

* Day-use entrance fee for vehicles with
up to eight people: average increase of $1
-$3 .
� Camping fees: average increase of $4
per night.
, Cabin rental fees: average increase of
$10 per night.
-Annual Pass: $60 for individuals and


$120 for families up to eight people.


The Florida Park Service Annual Pass is
good for day-use entrance into Florida's
state parks and a 33 percent discount for
individual admission to Homosassa
Springs Wildlife State Park, Skyway
Fishing Pier State Park and Weeki Wachee
Springs State Park.
In addition to these increases, the
Florida Park Service will lower the cost of
admission at Weeki Wachee Springs State
Park in Spring Hill to bring the cost of
admission down to rates more consistent
with Florida's other state parks. The cost
of admission for an adult will decrease
from $26.57 to $13 and from $18.05 to $5
for children.

View a complete list of Florida State
Park entry fees. All additional fees will be
posted on the Florida State Parks Web. site
at www.floridastateparks.org on July 1.

SPORTS COMMENTARY

Chasing a unicorn


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels r
Continued From Page lB
Ted Williams would have done more
but there were a couple of things like
WW II and Korea that cost him five years
of his career. When the war broke out
Williams went to pilot school and was
commissioned as a Marine Pilot in 1944.
Along the way he had scored a 3.85 on his
test and broke every gunnery record. He
left as an instructor for the F4U Corsair
and saw no military action in WW II.
Korea was different. Lieutenant Williams
became a F9F Panther'Jet pilot in eight
weeks. He had never flown a jet before
but 39 combat missions and an Air Medal
later he came home. He had served as
John Glenn's wingman.
The Thumper revived his baseball


career and was set to retire in 1959 but
could not do so because he had batted
under .300 for the first time in his career.
He retired in 1960 after having hissecond
worst season, batting .316. At the time
Williams was the only man to steal a base
in four different decades. He was
enshrined in the baseball Hall Of Fame in
1966.
Williams had another career it was and
is called fishing. He was.inducted into the
IGFA Fish Hall Of Fame and regarded by
some as the greatest all around fisherman
of his generation. He had a TV shoW
about fishing and loved to discuss it as
much as hitting.
In a day of specialists it's hard to
believe someone could have been thought
of at least as, one of the top ten baseball
players, fisherman and fighter pilots in the
world . Williams died in 2002 at the age
of 83. Much of his career is on display at
Tropicana Field in Tampa. ,

Detergent additive
You can save detergent simply by using
much less, but I have been using an old
"grandma's tip" for years. I put a cup of
white vinegar into my wash along with a
small amount of detergent. The vinegar
cleans whites, darks and colors so much
better and deodorizes them, too.
- Patricia

Day off from job hunting
My local museum and art museum of-
fer free admission one day a week. I am
-recently unemployed, and taking advan-
tage of these offers. This gives me a nice
day out between applying for jobs and in-
terviewing at no cost.
- Jennifer in Milwaukee

Safely kill roaches
When my children where young, a
friend of mine told me this trick for
roaches. Use baby food jars. Put a little
.oil on the bottom and put peanut butter
on the inside top rim. The roaches go in
ahd get stuck in the jar because they get
oil on them and die. Just throw, the jars
away. Place them in back of cabinets or
dark areas. where roaches like to hide.
- Carol


Use by...
I have a magnetic dry erase calendar c
� my freezer door. When I open a rpfriger-
ated item that needs to be used by a cer-
tain date once, I mark it on my calendar.
This also works really well for leftovers.
I write the name of the item on the date
that it needs to be used by. I've wasted a
lot less food, and since I see the calendar
on my freezer door every time I open the
fridge, it makes me much more aware of
what needs to be used up.
- Heather

That's entertainment!
Just like everyone else, I'm going
through a huge financial crunch these
days, so I've given up a lot of niceties in
order to afford necessities. But one thing
that I can't do without is a little entertain
ment. So I've found a couple of dollar
theaters in my area. Whatever is currently
playing at the 30-theater Multiplex will
be at my favorite $2 movie theater in
'about a month. So I wait it out, and for
less than I wbuld pay for just one ticket
at the big downtown theater ($11.75), I
get admission for me and my two chil-
dren and get us each a hot dollar dog
(total $9).
- EW ,

Fruit on the go
I like to take fresh fruits and/or veg-
etables to work for snacking, but I hate
the runny mess in the plastic baggies
from the water I used to wash the fruit








' . :


in the morning. I put a half sheet of a pa-
' per towel in the bottom of the bag and
put my clean fruit on top of it and seal it
up. When I get to my snack later in the
day, I have dry, clean fruit and I also
)n have a moist towel to use to wash my
hands.
- Laurie

Renewing mini-blinds
Mini-blinds are expensive, and yet the
i cords that work them seem to break very
r easily. I have saved a lot of money over
e the years by restringing my mini-blinds
f when the cords become damaged. I buy
new cords from a local window treatment
store, and restring any' blinds that are be-
coming frayed. If you do it before the
cord is actually broken, the new cord can
'be spliced or sewn onto the old cord. The.
repair is quite easy. For a better explana-
i tion than I can give, do a web search for
Show to restring mini-blinds," Although
i- it is more tedious. the repair can be done
even if the cord is broken. It costs about
y $3 in new cord for an average size
. mini-blind!

If you're unsure about a small appli-
ance purchase, check with your local area
Freecycle group or Craigslist. Someone
might have the appliance collecting dust
and be looking to donate it or sell for a
small price. If you find you like using the
appliance, when you can afford a new
one, buy it and donate the other if it still
functions. I have seen so many people
start making their own bread or dehydrat-

Don't waste your hard-earned dollars on
something you might not enjoy doing.

Save on deli meats
In order to save money on deli meat, I
purchased a relatively inexpensive meat
slicer (about $40 through the Internet).
Now, I purchase a whole turkey breast,
:whole boneless ham,: or beef roast at a
warehouse club for about $3 or less a
pound. I cook them in the slow cooker
for several hours. Then cool it in the re-
frigerator. When sufficiently cooled, I
slice the meat into my desired thickness,
bag what I can't use right away, and store
in the freezer.

SQuicken imitates "enve-
lope system"
I have been using
Quicken to track my mon-
ey for years. I devised my
own "envelope system,"


figure out what bills I have
to pay. I allocate the mon-
ey in the Quicken check
register, using notation
RES (reserved) instead of
a check number, This
deducts that amount from
the register, just as though
I had written a check. If I
have a bill that covers
more than one month, I
enter its prorated monthly
amount and the money ac-
cumulates over two or
three (or more) months.
When it's time to pay the
bill, I zero out the RES
listing, and the money
goes into my balance to
pay the bill. I can print out
a listing of the items with
the RES notation, so I
know how much I have
saved for upcoming bills.
There are no surprises. I
always have money there
when I need it for a bill.

The audio tour was developed by The Ichetucknee
Partnership (TIP).
John Wheeler; TIP education and outreach committee
chairman, said the tour will help educate the public about
springs protection.
"The tour will make homeowners in the recharge basin
aware that what they do with fertilizer and their septic
tanks affects the health of the Ichetucknee," Wheeler
said. "We want to let people know that the springs are
vulnerable to human activity all along that 14-mile
route:"
Wheeler suggests that the public use fertilizer appro-
priately and conserve water; have their septic tanks in-
spected regularly; and be cautious about what they pour
onto the ground.
For more information about TIP visit www.ichetuck-
nee4ever.org.

Dear Classified Guys,
I grew up loving ice cream and could
not wait for the ice cream truck to
come to my neighborhood. However
now as an adult, I have a different
take on it. I still love.ice cream and
don't even mind the truck coming
around, but the music is enough to
drive me insanely How many rendi-
tions of Yankee Doodle can one per-
son hear in one day? The truck
in our neighborhood shows up 4
around 4 pm and stays until
almost 9 pm. The kids around '
here love it, but the music has me
thinking of turning him in for noise
pollution. That was my plan until last
week when my son, now 18, came
home and said he found a summer,
job. "Where," you ask? Working the
ice cream route! I almost fell over.
The same truck I was about to turn in
for driving me crazy now hired my
son! What do you think...report the
truck and ruin my son's summer job
or go quietly insane listening to five
hours of Yankee Doodle every day?
Cash: That's the summer spirit...
report the ice cream man to the authori-
ties. That should win you a round of
applause from neighborhood children!
Carry: Actually your dilemma is one

many have faced. While everyone
loves the ice cream man, except maybe
those who are lactose intolerant, the
. constant playing of the same music has
also annoyed many.
Cash: It's like a reminder of one of
those songs that gets stuck in your head
for the entire day!
Carry: Ice cream trucks are unique
in the fact that they are businesses in
motion. That excludes them from
many town ordinances with regards to
noise pollution. Some towns and cities
with your similar dilemma have passed
legislation specifically prohibiting or
limiting the use of their music.
Cash: However, the music is key to

advertising the ice cream truck's busi-
ness. He would have a difficult time
attracting customers without it.
. Carry: To try resolving your issue,
go buy an ice cream! And while you're
there, talk with the owner and let him
know that the music is disturbing the
neighborhood. He may be willing to
cooperate by re-routing, lowering the
volume or minimizing the play time
until necessary.
Cash: Once your son has a job on
the truck, he may be able to work with
the owner to help control the music as
well. However, the new problem will
be when your son comes home
whistling Yankee Doodle!


Too Many Choices
If you like ice cream, you're in good
company. U.S. production of the sweet
treat amounted to more than 1.5 billion
gallons last year according the U.S.
Department ofAgriculture and was con-
sumed by almost 90% of all households.
While regular ice cream is the favorite
choice among more than 62% of con-
sumers, there are many other frozen
treats also enjoyed. Lowfat and nonfat
frozen ice cream account for 25% of the
market, while frozen yogurt (4.4%),
water ice (4.1%) and sherbet (3.4%) fol-
low as favorites. After all, who doesn't
need to cool off once in a while.
JingleTunes
Many ice cream trucks that roam the
neighborhood use nursery rhymes such
as "Pop Goes the Weasel", "London
Bridge" and "Turkey in the Straw" to
attract customers. According to legend
Harry Burt, inventor of the Good Humor
Bar, started the tradition in the 1920's.
He took the bells from his family's bob-
sled and attached them to his truck.
Eventually other drivers followed suit
playing music, ringing bells.or using
other noises to attract customers.

us your opinion? We want to hear all about it!

Salute a Hero
The other day I was in the grocery
store doing my weekly shopping.
When I was in the first aisle, I passed
a man dressed in a uniform of white
pants with a white shirt. I passed him
again in the second aisle and noticed
his shoes were a highly polished
black, matching his black belt..
By aisle three we both smiled at
each other noticing we kept passing.
Finally in aisle seven, I thought I
would pay him a compliment. As we
passed I said, "Your uniform is pris-
tine. You must be in the Navy,
maybe a Captain?"
"I'm much higher ranked than
that," he replied with a smile. "I'm
actually an ice cream man!"
(Thanks to Zoe F.)

Recognition and Response Time
Essential vs. Heart Attack
To many people, heart disease's status as the leading cause of
death for both men and women in the United States comes as no
surprise. For seniors, this is even less surprising, as heart health
is often a topic of discussion when seniors visit their physicians.
That heart disease claims so many American lives each year
(more than 650,000 in 2005 alone, according to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention) is not exactly illuminating to
most seniors, who are fully aware they must control their diets,
and exercise regularly to avoid cardiovascular disease. However,
the warning signs of heart disease, in particular heart attack,
might not be as widely known. While many might think all heart
attacks are sudden and intense, most actually start slowly, with
.some mild pain or discomfort, before escalating into something
much bigger, and much more deadly. The following warning signs
could be indicative that a heart attack is happening.
* Upper body discomfort: Nearly everyone is aware that pain in'
the left arm can be indicative of a heart attack. However, pain in
the neck, jaw, stomach, or even the right arm could also be
symptomatic of a heart attack.
* Discomfort in the chest: Discomfort in tle chest that lasts
longer that a few minutes, or goes away and returns periodically,
is very common among people who are having a heart attack.
This discomfort in the chest can feel like squeezing,
uncomfortable pressure or simply feel painful.
* Shortness of breath: Even if you're not having chest pain,
shortness of breath can be a symptom of heart attack. Shortness
of breath combined with chest pain should be considered an
emergency and action should be taken immediately.
Seniors who experience any of the aforementioned symptoms
should call 9-1-1 immediately. Many times, drugs designed to
bust blood clots can stop a heart attack or even a stroke from
occurring. However, these drugs are typically only effective if they
are administered quickly 'after the symptoms have first appeared,.
highlighting the importance of calling 9-1-1 immediately.
