 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.

library
Budget cuts
to blame
By Stephenie
Livingston
stephenie.livingston
@gaflnews.com
After facing possible
closure when the state of
Florida threatened to cut
off library funding alto-
gether, Branford's public
library is at least happy
to still have its doors,
open. The state only re-
cently decided to contin-
ue funding of public li-
braries, although fund-
ing is undergoing cut
backs. As Suwannee
County's ' smallest li-
brary, Branford's public
library has been hit hard
by recent budget cuts
and has. been forced to
cut back its operating
hours.
The new hours are:
Monday 9 a.m.-8 p.m.
Tuesdays-Friday
9 a.m. -5:30 p.m.
- Saturday 9 a.m.-4 p.m.


'Accidental'

police say otherwise.
Officers responded to
Scriven Avenue late Friday
night and observed Patrick
James Ketchen, 27, of 641
Pine Ave., and another per-
son walking together, ac-
cording to Live Oak Police
Chief Buddy Williams.
Upon investigation it was re-
portedly determined that
Ketchen fired a shot into the
air. Williams said Ketchen
denied firing the pistol and
called the discharge an "ac-
cidental misfire."
Ketchen further stated that
someone 'made threats
against his life, according to
Williams. Williams said it is
not known who made the
threats. Williams also said
the recovered revolver had
five live rounds in the cham-
ber and one fired shell.
Ketchen was charged with
carrying a concealed
weapon and discharging a
firearm in public.

n you tell me the benefits of
ng laminate flooring as
posed to real wood flooring?


A There aje three main laminate flooring
* benefits: cost, ease of installation, and
* durability. The durability of laminate
Iluoring ti a benefit Ihat is fai superior to real wood
flooring Laminate flooring i, approximately fifteen
times isronper than hardwood flooring and mos.I
come with a 10 or 15 year warranty. This.is a
considerable benefit over real wood Ilooring
Laminate flooring has the natural look of a genuine
wood floor without the added cost; and the
installation can be relatively sitnple. Apart from these
benefits, laminate flooring also has a high UV
resistance which blocks the harmful rays of the sun
and protects the design from fading. This benefit can
save alot of future maintenance that would be
required to keep a real wood floor looking as good as
laminate flooring. For more information contact the
professionals at Live Oak Paint & Flooring.

Drugs Used for Bipolar Disorder
Bipolar disorder is a mental condition in which there are
alternating severe mood extremes of mania and depression. Signs
and symptoms range from mild to severe. Manic symptoms may
include euphoria, rapid speech, racing thoughts, risky behavior, and
inability to concentrate. Depressive symptoms may include feelings
of hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, fatigue, and decreased
interest in daily activities. There are 2 main types. Bipolar I
disorder is characterized by at least I manic episode, with or
without prior'depressive episodes. 1Bipolar. II disorder is
characterized by at least I depressive episode and at least I episode
of hypomania, which is declined as a less severe and shorter duration
manic episode. Although the exact cause of bipolar disorder is not
known, genetic as well as environmental factors may play a role,
There are a variety of medications available that may likely need
to be taken for long term to control signs and symptoms. Lithium
(Eskalith, Lithohid) works to stabilize the mood and prevent
extremes of depression and mania. Anti-seizure medications, such
as valproic acid (l)epakene) and divalproex (D)epakote), may also
be used to stabilize the mood. Seroquel (quetiapine) has been
approved by the FDA to treat this condition.

we watch?


Has the American society dumbed
down, or is our dumbness just more
pronounced with an increase in popu-
lation?
And with broader venues of com-
munication, are we more exposed to '
that dumbness?
A recent national commentary blast-
ed the media for telling us too much.
about which movie stars are divorc- Dwain Walden
ing and too little about politics, eco-
nomics and advances in science.
Of course someone must define dumbness in this
analysis. I can't exactly put that into words, but I can
paint you a'picture. Watch a rerun of Jay Leno's "Bat-
tle of Jaywalking All Stars." And no, John Wilkes
Booth did not invent the telephone booth.
Now let's talk about the chicken and the egg. Is it the
media's fault or does the fault lie with the audience? If
you don't watch, the show goes away.
Think about this, there's 150-plus channels. They put
a lot of stuff on those channels, and it's very difficult to
attract Phi Beta Kappas to all the programming.
One channel brings us nightly stories about guys and
gals who drive tractor-trailer rigs on icy roads. It's
called "Ice Road Truckers." I appreciate that we have
truckers skilled enough to haul pipe from Fairbanks,
Alaska to Prudhoe Bay. But when I've watched one
run, I've watched them all. My appreciation is duly
noted.
Another channel takes us into the stormy North Pa-
cific every night to watch crab fishermen haul in their
traps. The crabs all look alike every night. There's nev-
er a pirate's chest hauled in. I'm very fond of crab legs.
Again, my thanks to those fishermen.
Then we have the Jerry Springer Show. People come
on stage in their underwear and throws chairs at one
another because one found out that the other one had
been sleeping around. The third party shows up in his
or her underwear and a bouncer keeps them apart. I've
often wondered why they were in their underwear. And
then it hit me. That way they don't have anywhere to
conceal a weapon. All of these people look like they
might audition for a remake of "Deliverance."
The fact that people who obviously are repulsed at
the idea of a Stairmaster will appear on national media
in their Fruit of the Looms doesn't concern me as much
as the fact that such programming appeals to an audi-
ence. In other words, the people who like this kind of
stuff may also be licensed to drive on public roads,
may use public facilities and what's really scary ...
they reproduce.
And now we have high definition digital television
putting this stuff in your lap. I just bought one with a
screen so big I can smell popcorn when I turn it on. It
does have an impact on your senses. When the big rig
started cracking through the frozen lake, I clung to a
cushion, even though I don't think.it could be used as a
flotation device. And when the skinny guy wearing
only his boxer shorts and a paisley tie was being pum-
meled by the big woman, also in her undergarments, I
got nauseous.
So did media create the audience, or was it already
there and media responded to the demand? It's often
been said that we are what we eat. So are we also what
we watch?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


To the Editor:
Of Florida's 67 counties, 5 remain dry. Lafayette,
Liberty, Madison, Suwannee and Washington.
All are rural counties situated in North Florida with
little or no economy. To those who are against a'wet
county and argue about their quality of life being erod-
ed, compare these 5 counties with other (like) counties
in Florida or Georgia. For all those for a wet county,
stop ranting about it, take some action, let's make it
happen.
- James Hendon


To the Editor:
In response to Live Oak Fire Department's Lieu-
tenant Jerry Sullivan's comments in the Rant and Rave
(June 19), I would like to answer his question concern-
ing my responsibility as the Suwannee County Fire
Marshal.
I am not one to self promote or seek media attention:
I was raised with 5 generations of Suwannee County
work ethics and values that dispose me to dedication
and honor to the professional service of protecting and
preserving the lives and property of my home county.
Mr. Sullivan you asked the question "When did
Suwannee County get a fire marshal?". Sense the first
day of Professional County Fire Service, Suwannee
County has had a Fire Marshal. The duties and respon-
sibilities of a County dr Municipal Fire Marshal are
clearly defined by Florida State Statute 633. There is a
vast difference between the State Fire Marshal and a
Local Fire Marshal. First the State Fire Marshal is the
State Insurance Commissionet, namely at this time
Mrs. Alex Sink. Florida State Statute 633.025 (2)
which is law reads "Pursuant to subjection (1), each
municipality, county and special fire district with fire
safety responsibilities shall enforce the Florida Fire
Prevention Code and the Life Safety Code as the mini-
mum fire safety code required by this section (em-


phases supplied). Florida State Statue 633 also clearly
states that the State Fire Marshal cannot enforce or ap-
ply local fire safety codes that are the statutory respon-
sibility of the Authority Having Jurisdiction for that lo-
cal area of service responsibility. Please go on-line at
myflorida.com and review the Florida State Statutes es-
pecially 633, if not, I will gladly loan you my copy.
It was a great honor to have'the responsibility of
heading the Fire Prevention Division for Suwannee
County bestowed upon me by my Fire Chief. For the
past 24 years, I have worked hard to both prove myself
and improve my professional abilities for my service
and my county. I have obtained National Board Certifi-
cation at the highest levels in both fields of Inspection
and Investigation. I am a voting member of the Nation-
al Fire Protection Association (NFPA), National Fire
Marshals Association, Florida Arson Prevention Coun-
cil, and the Florida Fire Inspectors and Lifesafety Edu-
cators. In my spare time, I have -offered consulting
opinions on both investigations and inspections all over
the United States. My opinions have cleared any
Dauber Challenge that has been submitted in courts of
law. I almost forgot the two degrees I have in the field
of Fire and Emergency Service.
As for the issues of the power to arrest, yes I do not
have that authority. I do have the statutory authority to
investigate and if needed charge someone with a crime
of arson or fraud. The authority to arrest someone for
crime is specifically granted to our law enforcement
brothers and sisters. The State Fire Marshal cannot ar-
rest anyone either, the DETECTIVES who work under
the State Fire Marshal have that authority. Once again
read the statute that governs the Fire Service for Flori-
da.
It's a shame that I had to take time away froiom my day
off while working to finish my master's degree, to an-
swer Live Oak Fire Department Lieutenant Jerry Sulli-
van's concerns.

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie. livingston @ gaflnews. corn

Mike Reaves is 6'2", 280 pounds and can take ouq an opponent %% th
a single hit. He's quick, powerful and the National Independent Football
League's best all around linesman. He's also anxious bout turning 50.
At 48, Reaves, of Branford, outperformed every other linesnm.n in the
NIFL and won this year's Linesman of the Year Aw ard. Throughout the
season Reaves never allowed a sack and had over 12 pancake blocks.
"A pancake block is when an opposing team's pla. er is knocked flat
on his back by a linesman. Basically, he's knocked i allI." aid team
manager Matt Vanetten.
"Mike knocks them silly pretty often, and leaves them flailing
around on the ground."
According to Vanettan, Reaves out performed the Lake Cit. -based
league's 18-25-year-olds.
"He out performed much younger talent," said Vanettan. "Most
guys are just trying to get through after 40."
However, it is Reaves' role off the field that convinced league
managers to not only give him the award, but to name in for him.
Reaves' story'is one "made for Walt Disney," Rea\ es said jok- I
ingly. It starts during his senior year of high school. v% hen he
was all set to play for Bobby Bowden at Florida State. He
was a blue chip tight end with a bright future ahead of
him.
. However, Reaves' dreams were crushed during his se-
nior year, along with his knee. During the first drill
of his senior year, he received a blow to his knee
and was forced to have re-constructive surgery.
His hopes of playing for Florida State were. per-
manently dashed. "To have that and get it tak-
en away...," Reaves began. "Well, you can
imagine."
A few years later Reaves attempted to play
for Henderson State University in Arkansas,
but his knee gave out during the first few
weeks of practice and he decided to leave the
school. He eventually earned a two-year de-
gree and began working at Wayne Frier Mobile, ,
Homes. . -
Reaves found himself happily married and on the
way to becoming a successful businessman. Privately.
however, he was dealing with his increasing dependence on alcohol.
"It took me a long time to admit that I was an alcoholic and a long time to recov-
er. One of the worst things I can remember is the loneliness that the disease brought
me," 'said Reaves.
According to Reaves, what way fun when he was young became something he
couldn't give up. "I still took care of my family and I was a good person," said
Reaves. "But I was trying to drink myself to death. I was more concerned with
drinking and making money than I was with sports. There was nearly five years that
I had trouble just getting out of bed. Something had to give."
It was on September 5, 2002 that everything began to change. Reaves says he will
always remember that as the day he accepted Christ and decided to change his life.
"After much prayer from family, friends, and giving up my will and start doing
God's will, a miracle occurred. And believe me, when a true alcoholic quits drink-
ing, it is a miracle," said Reaves. "I never drank again."
At the time, Reaves was still working out and staying in shape. Coach Bobby
Monroe of the Lake City Saints got word of Reaves' size and skill.
"I started playing when the team didn't even have matching uniforms," said
Reaves. "We played on a field in the middle of nowhere and didn't have any fans.
You had to really love football to want to play. It was basically like a bunch of men
meeting up to battle."
The Saints' main purpose has always been to help, encourage, and inspire young
men to dream, and Reaves stands as their chief inspiration.
"I've learned that the true meaning of happiness is to help others," said Reaves.
"Through football, guys who would otherwise not be doing much with their lives
start dreaming again."
Monroe says Reaves has been an inspiration to the entire team. "He does every-
thing from his heart," Monroe said. Reaves has accomplish a great deal against all
odds and, therefore, inspires others players to follow his lead. "He gives the
younger guys something to look up to and look forward to," said Monroe.


Boat ramp renovations


cording to Reaves, he's in

better shape now than he was ten years ago and ot e w ise no
has no plans to give up the game he loves.
"I won't stop playing until they carry me off," b I.dI ng ITT
said Reaves. He says his main inspiration has
been his nine-year-old son and his two daughters.
"I want them to feel they should never give up, , a --,
stay determined and keep pushing forward," said
Reaves. "By watching me do something for myself again. "
and turn it into something that helps others, maybe ikee- av
they will learn something."
After having been named an All-American last
year, being nominated this year, and winning the league's Linesman of the Year
award, Reaves says he couldn't be more satisfied.
"God has given me back ten-fold what 1 lost my senior year of high school,"
Reaves said. "If I retired today, 1 would say 1 could not have asked for more."
"Mike has come from a long road of trials and errors. He made a change in his
life and he saw that other'people need that same change," Monroe said. "He inspires
people to do this. And he does it through sports. He's a great guy. Go Mike Reaves!"

'You don't get to grieve here'

be tested on them the next
morning. She said she
stayed up all night with
flash cards. She passed.
Hernandez said it is her
job to calm the person on
the other end of the line -
not always an easy job.
"You have to talk to peo-
ple in a soothing way so
you can calm them down to
get . information out of
them," said Hernandez.
She said when she first
started the job she had to
learn to talk with an even
tone.
"I had to learn not to
come off overly excited be-
cause they (law enforce-
ment) read the emotion and
tone of your voice. You
don't want to get them to
get too excited;" said Her-
nandez.
She said she understands
those on the other end of the
line because she had to call
for help once.
"I was so frantic, it's hard
being on the other side," she
said.
Hernandez said her sister
had just gone into labor and
was trying to leave the
house when the back porch
caught fire. The flames
were higher than the roof.
She said she was the one
being told to calm down
this time.
Hernandez said she re-
members her first call
where she had to relay CPR
instructions. A two-year-old
had fallen into a pool. A
frantic mother called 911
and got Hernandez who
talked her through the steps.
The toddler regained con-
sciousness during the call.
"The little girl started
breathing before rescue got
there," said Hernandez.
She called the experience
"euphoric."
"I felt lightheaded," she
said. "I was just dazed and
wanted to cry. It makes you
feel like you're doing what
you're meant to do. That's
when I was like, 'yeah this
is what I want to.do.'"
But the calls go both
ways. Hemandez said sev-
eral years ago she received
a call from a man who had
struck and killed a pedestri-
an with his semi truck as
they were walking along
the road.
"He was frantic, saying
he knows she's dead and he
is a murderer," said Heman-
dez. "He stopped talking
and I couldn't hear him cry-
ing anymore."
The man had suffered a
heart attack and died.
"It made me cry because
I kept thinking I was the last
person that guy talked to
when he died. That's a lot of
pressure, a lot of responsi-
bility," said Hernandez.
She said the strangest call
she received was about a
man who stripped down to


his underwear, climbed a
power pole and waved at
motorists as they drove by.
"The deputies said he was
talking about aliens and an-
tennas and getting probed,"
said Hernandez.
And sometimes she gets
calls that let her laugh.
"A lady down in Branford
said her neighbor had an air
compressor on and that
made her mad. She said to
send an officer there be-
cause they were sucking in
her air," said Hernandez.
And then there is the
same man that calls more
than he should, she said.
"This guy always calls
and we answer, 'sheriffs of-
fice, recorded line,' and the
guy always asks, 'is this line
recorded,'" said Hernandez.
But the hardest part of the
job so far has been the death
of a fellow dispatcher. Nik-
ki Ford died at the age of 25
July 2008 after her car
struck a tree head-on on CR
49. She had just finished her
shift at 6 a.m. Hernandez
and her partner were taking
over. Hernandez said she
knew she was dealing with
a fatality but had no clue the
impact it would have on her
and her co-worker.
"That was very hard,"
said Hernandez. "We had no
clue (it was her) until the
deputy called and asked to
run a tag number and it
came back to her. I said 'no,'
because we just saw her."
"The hardest part was to
call in a fellow dispatcher's
death," said dispatcher Ldri
France. "We didn't even
have a chance to cry. You go
in dispatcher mode even
though emotionally you
don't think you'll make it."
Hernandez agreed: "You
don't get to grieve here."
Sheriff Tony Cameron
said it takes a special person
to do what France, Hernan-
dez and their co-workers
do.
"There are times when
they are under great stress
due to the types of calls they
are receiving," said
Cameron. "The lives of both
the officers involved and

"They do a job that's

tate him for more than an
hour. He was pronounced
dead at 5:26 p.m. ET.
Here's what some locals
had to say Friday about
Jackson's passing:

Dave Johnson, age 54 --
"I hated to hear it. He wasn't
just an American icon, he
was a worldwide icon. After
hearing the circumstances
behind it, I feel so sorry for
him, 1 really do."

Perry Tillman, 33 -- "It's a
tragedy we lost such a great
pioneer of the music indus-
try. For all his faults, he was
a great individual.. It's truly
a loss."

Ken Dolingo, 58 (Minag-
er, Live Oak Music Center)
-- "I just found out. It's very
sad. He was a great artist.
He certainly changed music
and music videos."

Ray Higginbotham, 52 --
"Anybody, that passes I
think is bad. From what you
hear on the news, I think
they jump to conclusions.-
They say they're going to do
an autopsy. People should
wait to see the results. It's
just a young age to go. 1
hate it for anybody, but


we're all going."

Greg Clayton, 37 -- "He
was a good black artist. His
music was good. He was the
best inventor in dance and
the moonwalk."

Elva Gaylord, 76 -- "He
got some good deals. He
had some bad deals. But it
was all about money. He got
money and people even got
his money. He was a good
guy. He stayed on top. But
money talks."

Shauntina Cooper, 28 --
"It's very sad. I love all his
music and stuff. Even when
we were kids, we used to
love his music."

Kelley Butcher, 37 -- "In
the '80s he was great, but
somewhere in there he
turned into a freak. He was-
n't human no more. He was
all plastic, silicone and im-
. plants. God made him one
way. I don't know what hap-
pened to him. I lost all re-
spect for him."

Herbert. Wells, 40 -- "I'm
sorry for him to leave. He
was the world's greatest en-
tertainer."

Andrew Gray, 72 -- "It's a
tragic thing. It's a great lost


to the entertainment world."

Vera Pittman, 56 -- "It's
just real sad that he passed
so young."

Kenny Williams, 41 --
"It's a sad day for music fans
worldwide. He definitely
was a music icon."

Gloria Ross, 43 -- "Mike
was my boy back in the day.
All I could say is that I hope
his soul was right."

Arantez Hunter, 11 -- "I
think that he was like 50. He
didn't need to die. He was a
real great dancer and
singer."

Shandrel Thomas, 24 --
"It's a sad, sad thing."

Rosetta Armstrong, 26 --
"I feel bad because he did
have children. It's sad
though. It's real sad."

Jennifer Copeland, 43
(Live Oak native, visiting
from Jacksonville) - "Well,
I know that he was a legend
in my time. In the '80s I
danced to a lot of his music.
It's a loss. His music legacy
will continue on."

Kemuel Clarke, 10 (visit-
ing from Jacksonville) -- "A


VEGGIE POWER


Continued From Page 1A

Warman, 19, Peter Hilde-
brand, 20, Tycho Williams,
20, and John Paganetti, 22 -
- are all college students
from Middletown, Conn.
who are making their way
across the country on veg-
etable oil and a whim. The
group was hoping to find a
new fuel pump in Live Oak
for to their bus' fuel system
in order to continue their
journey.
The five attended Mid-
dletown High School to-
gether and are simply en-
joying their summer before
returning to college in the
fall.
"There's really no plan or
rhyme or reason to it,"
Williams said. The group
hopes to meet Gary Old-
man, the actor who played
Lt. James Gordon in the
film The Dark Knight, but
had no real explanation as
to why that meeting would
be so important.
Williams and Paganetti
attend the 'University of


Connecticut; Hildebrand,
Eastern Connecticut State
University; Resnikoff, City
College of New York; and
Warman, Hampshire Col-
lege in Massachusetts.
Their fields of study range
from literature to cognitive
neuroscience.
"Conversations on this
bus are a lot of fun," Hilde-
brand said.
Although the group has
only traveled for three
weeks, the idea for the
road trip has been in the
works for nearly four
years. They purchased the
school bus on eBay for
$1,800, and traveled from
Middletown to. Dexter,
Minn. by Greyhound to re-
trieve it. They said they
held a spray painting party
to decorate the bus, named
it "Anne Marie" after a
Grateful Dead song, and it
took nearly a year and a
half to construct a fuel sys-
tem that runs on vegetable
oil. The makeshift system
holds about 100 gallons of
vegetable oil and gets


about 10 miles to the gal-
lon.
"We've been fortunate
that we have friends in cer-
tain parts of the county,"
Williams said. The group
has often gone without
showering for weeks, he
said, but they don't seem to
mind much. Williams said
they've depended on the
generosity of restaurants to
provide used cooking oil,
which they then filter to
fuel their bus.
The group has made
stops in Washington, DC.;
Charlottetown, Virginia;
and Charlotte, North. Car-
olina. Now they're headed
to New Orleans for the 4th
of July, Williams said. At
some point they hope to
spend a week or so attempt-
ing to cross the state of
Texas. The road trip will
culminate on the west
coast.
"We're excited to visit
California and the Bay area
because most of us haven't
been there before,"
Williams said.

Dental decay, also called dental caries,
can develop on three specific areas of the
tooth: in the pits and fissures that are
portion of the tooth; in the smooth enamel
sides of the tooth; and in the root. In
children, about 60 percent of all cavities
occur in pits and fissures, either on the
chewing surface or In pits and grooves in
teeth that didn't form properly. Sealants
can help prevent decay in pits and
fissures,
Smooth surface decay usually occurs in
the sides of teeth that lace each other.
Those are called the proximal surfaces.
Since toolhbrush bristles don't effectively
reach these surfaces, flossing is important
to break up the plaque that holds the acid
against the enamel.
Root caries, as the names states, occurs
on the tooth's rootl. This normally afflicts
older people whose gums have receded,
exposing the root to the perils of the oral
environment. Cancer patients who have
had radiation treatment of the head and
neck are also especially prone to root
cavities. Talk with your dentist lor more

The passing

pretty much ate
up the airways
this weekend.
Undeterred I went to the
MLB station hoping to catch
a Mets Classic. It was classic
all right, Ex-Met Nolan Ryan
tossing his seventh no-hitter.
Of course they had to remind
the viewer no Met has ever
thrown a no-hitter but of
course Tom Seaver, David
Cone, Doc Gooden and what
ever ex-Met has.

us half the price for name brand

Overhead storage
A place to find storage is over

allow space up to 18 inches deep.
You can store seldom-used items

If you are coming back from a

charge a flat fee. It's a lot less
than going to a currency ex-

you're planning on never going

We don't need gas this summer
To save a little money when
every dollar counts, I called my
gas company and asked if they
charged for turning off the gas
and turning it on again. They said
that there was not a charge. We
only use gas for the furnace and
the pilot light is electric. They
were charging me every month
for not using any gas but for the
line, taxes and such to the
amount of over $20 per month. I
now have them shut off the gas
on the first of May and turn on
when needed in the fall. Be sure
to check with your gas company
about the charges.

Reviving veggies
I have always cut my celery,
stocks into chunks and plunged
those into cold water in the
fridge to get the celery to stiffen
back to its original, state after be-
coming limp. I wondered if I
could do something similar to re-
vive some lettuce that I had. My
romaine lettuce had become terri-
bly wilted, but not brown on the
edge of the leaves. I tore the wilt-
ed leaves from the rest of the
"stalk" and stood them with the
torn/cut ends in a glass of water
in the door of the fridge for a
day. The water was about two to
three inches deep in the glass. I
was shocked and pleased to see
that the wilted leaves came back
to their original crispy fresh state.
I have even resurrected the same
lettuce leaves more than once
with this method.

Defeating summer boredom
I organized a toy exchange
with some of the other moms in
my MOPS (Mothers of
Preschoolers) group. We each
picked out several toys that our
kids don't care about and put
them in a boxv we.then swapped-
boxes.


Whenever I need a %
"new" toy for my son,
I grab some- W#14
.thing from,
the box.
This is espe-
cially helpful
when we go on
long car trips. I
give my son a
special "new"
toy every, few
hours to keep him oc-
cupied. The best part about the
toy exchange is that it is free!
And, it can work with older kids,
too!

Paying for grad school
Anyone wanting to attend
graduate school should speak
with representatives of the
school; and with current students
and recent graduates of the spe-
cific program (not just the whole
university) about funding op-
tions. Have conversations with
many people in many roles.
I was able to attend a very ex-
pensive private graduate school
through a combination of fellow-
ships and assistantships, but I
had to talk to dozens of people to
get the information I needed and
gain access to these. The effort
was well worth it. I have the
graduate degree that I wanted
from the school where I wanted
to go and borrowed only a mod-
est amount of money to make up
the gap in my expenses.

My daily dollars
I'm a debt free single mom
who owns her own home. I have
become a whiz at budgeting out
of necessity. Lately, I had really
been struggling to save but in-
vented a nifty trick. When my
paycheck comes, I deposit into
checking only enough to cover
my regular monthly bills, which I
have automatically deducted. I
next deposit $250 into my sav-
ings account. With the money
left over, I get cash. I know that
there are 15 days between pay-
-thecks, so I divide the sum by 15
and pay myself the correct


amount each day from my
cash envelope. It turns out for me
to be $30/day.
No more running out of money
before payday! It has made me
much smarter and I put more
thought into my finances. I write
the date on the envelope before I
take out the money to help me
keep track. I drive my. bank crazy
by asking for 15 tens and 15
twenties every pay day, but I am
now able to save $500 a month!

Those "free" vacations


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) on Thursday
proposed rule amendments
that would give Florida
shrimpers more ways to avoid
the unintended, catch of marine
animals and protected sea tur-
tles in their fishing nets.
The FWC's proposed rules
would allow the use of by-
catch-reduction devices for
shrimp trawls in Florida waters
that have recently been cleared
for use in adjacent federal., wa-
ters. The proposed rules would
also automatically allow future
federally approved bycatch re-
duction devices to be used in
state waters and update FWC
turtle-excluder-device regula-
tions for shrimp trawls.
The FWC has required the-'

What they frequently don't
realize is that the "free" air

result in a Form MISC-1099 to

federal and possible state income

owe taxes in excess of what they
would have paid out-of-pocket

2010 FHSAA Competitive Cheerleading


Championships to be held in Kissimmee


Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee
will be the host of the 2010 FH-
SAA Competitive Cheerleading
Championship, the Florida High
School Athletic Association an-
nounced recently.
"We feel fortunate to have been
selected by the FHSAA to host the
Competitive Cheerleading Champi-
onships at Osceola Heritage Park,"
said Tom Lang, Executive Director
of the Kissimmee Convention and
Visitors Bureau. "We are very
proud of our Silver Spurs Arena
and we think that all of the com-
petitors and their friends and family
will be pleased with the facility,
and with Kissimmee and the Cen-
tral Florida area as a host commu-


nity."-
The Kissimmee Convention and
Visitors Bureau, in conjunction,
with the Osceola County School
District, will host the event Febru-
ary 5-6.
"By moving the competitive,
cheerleading championships earlier
than in previous years, it will brig
the season in line with the other
sports, and will provide an excel-
lent Central Florida venue to allow
the teams who w would like to com-
pete an opportunity to do so," said
Executive Director Roger Dearing.
: Previously, the FHSAA Competi-
tive Cheerleading Championships
conflicted with FCAT testing dates,
which impacted the number of


schools wishing to participate.
Since the FHSAA did not want to
contend with FCAT testing the
competitive cheerleading season
has been shortened.

About the FHSAA:
The Florida High School Athletic
Association is the governing body,
for interscholastic athletics in Flori-
da. It has a membership of more
than 750 middle and senior high
schools, and sponsors postseason
competitions to determine the offi-
cial state high school champions in
30 different sports. The 16-member
FHSAA Board of Directors is the-
executive authority of the Associa-
tion.

Lloyd wins Scott Thompson Memorial at Volusia Speedway Park


Although the rain did come at Volusia,
it came early enough in the day that it did
not spoil the Scott Thompson Memorial.
Thirty-four Late Model drivers came to
try for the beautiful guitar trophy and
$3800. Ivedent Lloyd qualified the fastest
with a 17.028 followed by Tyler Ivey with
a 17.028, Darell Padgett with a 17.175,
Johnny Collins with a 17.256 and Mark
Whitener with a 17.262.
Four heat races were run for the Late
Models with the top four cars taken out of
each heat for the main event. Winning
heat number 1 was Ivedent Lloyd, heat
number 2 Keith Nosbisch, heat number 3
Tyler Ivey and heat number 4 Jack Nos-
bisch Jr.
' Two B-Mains were run for the Late
Models with the top four of each B-Main
also going into thie main event. Patrick
Williams, who drove the number 38
owned by Scott Thompson, won the first
B-Main with Shan Smith winning the sec-
ond B-Main. The field was finally set for
26 cars with Keith Nosbisch on the pole
for the 50 lap event.
Patrick Williams took the number 38 to
the front of the field for the warm-up laps
leading to the main event forming the
missing man field. Williams proudly rode
in front alone in the #38 reminding fans
how much Scott Thompson was missed.
Williams took the #38 back to it's starting
position as the green finally waved on the
Scott Thompson Memorial.
Keith Nosbisch took the point on the
green followed by Jack Nosbisch Jr.,
Tyler Ivey, Mark Whitener and Dillon
Wood. Whitener wasted no time moving
forward as he passed Ivey for third and
then Nosibsch for second. By lap 3, it was
Whitener to the point followed by Keith
Nosbisch, Jack Nosbisch Jr., Ivey and
Johnny Collins. In comes Ivedent .Lloyd,
winner of the Powell Memorial the week
before at Ocala Speedway and the Late
Model feature last Saturday at Volusia,
making his way towards the front. Lloyd
works his way towards the front when the
first caution comes out on lap 12 for
Adam Bennett who has spun at the bot-
tom of turn 2.
Whitener once again takes the point on
the restart followed by Jason Fitzgerald,
Keith Nosbisch, Lloyd and Ivey. Lloyd
takes third and pulls right on the tail of
Fitzgerald in second. Whitener has his
hands full of Fitzgerald who wants the
point and takes the point on lap 16 with
Lloyd following through to second fol-
lowed by Whitener, Nosbisch and Ivey.
Racing is getting hot and heavy but the
caution comes out for Jack Nosbisch Jr.
who has spun high'in turn 2.
Once again Fitzgerald takes the point
on the restart followed by Lloyd, Whitner,
Ivey and K. Nosbisch. But it is a very
short green as the yellow comes out al-
most immediately for a pile-up at the bot-
tom of turns 1 and 2 involving Kevin
Durden, Clay Bedenbaugh, Adam Ben-
nett, Kent Corbin, Patick Williams and
Stephen Castleberry. Fitzgerald once-
again took the point on the green fol-
lowed by Lloyd, Whitener, Matt Hartley
and Tyler Ivey who is doing some side-
by-side racing with Johnny Collins.
Collins wins the battle and goes to fourth
as Hartley settles into fifth. It is almost as,
if Fitzgerald and Lloyd are in a world of
their own as they are far ahead of the rest
of the field. Whitener is a "lone ranger" in
third all alone followed in the distance by
Collins and Ivey. It continues like this un-
til lap 26.
On lap. 26 as Fitzgerald and Lloyd are
doing their thing for the.point, a lap car
comes into the picture as Fitzgerald gets
stuck behind the lap car and Lloyd is able
to take the lead on the outside as Fitzger-
ald has to settle for second. It is now
Lloyd, Fitzgerald, Whitener, Collins and
Ivey.
Adam Bennett has problems on lap 30
as he slowly limps around the top of the
track making his, way back to the pits.
Lloyd continues to lead followed by
Fitzgerald, Whitener, Collins and Darell
Padgett. Padgett is now on the move and
passes Collins for fourth as Collins settles
into fifth. Lap 45 sees Fitzgerald take
back the point but it is only temporary as
Lloyd fights back and regains the position
putting Fitzgerald back to second.
Ivedent Lloyd takes the checkered and
wins the Scott Thompson Memorial fol-
lowed by Jason Fitzgerald, Mark Whiten-
........ er, Darell Padgett and Richard Ferry. The
next event for the United Dirt Late Model


Challenge Series will be August 8 at Way-
cross Motor Speedway and the 2nd Annu-
al Scotbilt Classic.
Shane Williams and Ronnie Ponce won.
the heat races for the Sportsman but their
feature was a little off for this class. Fi-
nally after numerous cautions, the class
was told they had 20 minutes to get the
job done or the race would be called.
Luckily they did finally find their groove
.. but it was a wild time for awhile.
Twenty two cars were in the feature as
Garret Stewart had the pole with Kevin
Davis on the outside. Stewart took the


point on the green followed by Ronnie
Ponce, Shane Williams, Davis and Drew
Smith. Ponce took over the point putting
Stewart second as the caution came out
on lap 1 for Steve Shead and Aaron
Barsness who got together at the bottom
of turns 1 and 2. Barsness is able to con-
tinue but Shead needs the tow truck.
With Stewart on the inside, Ponce on
the outside, Ponce takes the lead over
Stewart, Williams, David and Danny Vo-
gel Jr. Williams takes over second but the
caution comes out again for Ken Hall Sr.,
Marc Kinley and Karl Haas for a spin in
the bottom of turn 2. Ponce on the inside,,
Stewart on the outside, fans are on their'
feet as they go three wide for the point.
Ponce, Williams, and Stewart are all side-
by-side but in the end, it is Williams who
has the point followed by Ponce, Stewart,
Vogel, and Smith. But yet another yellow
comes out for Paul Shead and Levi Cribbs
who have spun also on the bottom of turn
2. Donnie Birdwell also spins after the
fact and is given back his spot since the
caution was called for Shead and Cribbs
and this is only lap 3.
Williams on the inside, Ponce on the
outside as Williams takes the point on the
green followed by Ponce, Stewart, Vogel
and Chris Vogel. But the yellow comes
out again as Drew Smith has spun on the
bottom of turn 2. Another restart is in or-
der but it also fails as the yellow comes
out again for Timothy Miller who has
spun on the bottom of turn 2. Will this
race ever make it pass lap 3?
Williams takes the point on the restart
but Ponce takes over the point but only
shortly as the caution comes out on lap 4
for debris on the track. Another restart as
Ponce leads the way over Williams, Dan-
ny Vogel, Chris Vogel and Stewart.
Williams challenges Ponce but Ponce
shuts the door. It is Ponce, Williams, Vo-
gel, Vogel, Stewart, Daugharty, Peacock,
McGillivray, Haney, Davis and Smith
leading the way.
Lap 9 sees McGillivrary bring out the
caution for a spin at the bottom of turn 2.
Ponce once again leads the way on the
restart followed by Vogel, Williams, Vo-
gel and Daugharty. By lap 10,
McGillivrary is off and done for the night
as Ponce leads the way over Vogel,
Williams, Vogel and Daugharty.
Lap 11 sees the caution come out for
Drew Smith who has spun at the bottom
of turn 2. Ponce once again takes the
point on the lead followed by Vogel,
Williams, Daugharty, and Vogel. By lap
11, Williams has taken over second as Vo-
gel goes to third. Lap 16 sees Chris Vogel
do a complete 360 for the fans on the
frontstretch. Vogel retires to the pits as
.Ponce once again is onthe point for the
restart. But Daugharty has had enough as
he takes over the point on lap 17 followed
by Williams, Vogel, Ponce and Peacock.
Suddenly on lap 18,. Daugharty begins
to slow and it becomes evident that he is
in trouble as he heads into the pits, done
for the night. With Daugharty out of the
way, Williams now takes over the point
followed by Vogel, Ponce, Peacock and
Haney. Ponce dusts the frontstetch wall
but continues as Stewart takes his ride in
on the last lap as Williams takes the
checkered followed by Danny Vogel, Jr.,
Ronnie Ponce, Alan Peacock and Mike
Haney.
Fourteen cars were in the field for the
Street Stock feature with Phil Brown on
-the pole and Charlie Macnichol on the.
outside pole. Brown quickly takes the
point on the green followed by Macni-
chol, Grady Christian, Bubba Christian,
and Michael Tovet. Christian begins his
move to the front but finds that Brown is
not so quick'to give up the point. Brown
shuts the door on Christian every time.
Lap 4 sees the yellow come out for
Wally Schneider and Mick Kulak who
have gotten together in turn 1 and hit each
other hard. Both drivers are fine but done.
for the night. Brown on the inside, Christ-
ian on the outside for the restart as Brown
once again takes the point over Christian,
Macnichol, Christian, and Tovet. But after
a great try, Brown can no longer hold off
Christian as he takes the point and Brown
goes to second. Lap 6.sees Brown and
Macnichol get together as Brown pushes
Macnichol but both hold on. But the cau-
tion comes out for Macnichol who has
spun on the backstretch from the battle
for position with Brown. Both Brown and
Macnichol are fine and put to the rear for
the restart.
Tovet'on the inside, Christian on the


outside, Christian takes the point over
Tovet, Steve Mooers, Macnichol and
Brown. Bubba Christian is definitely hav-
ing problems and limps his ride into the
pits, done for the night. Christian contin-
ues to lead the way over Tovet, Mooers,
Macnichol and Brown. By lap 1Q, Tovet
has built up steam and challenges Christ-
ian for the point but Christian quickly
shuts the door.
Lap 12 sees Mooers take over second
as Tovet goes to third. Now Mooers chal-
lenges Christian for the point but Christ-


ian has nothing to do with it and shuts the
door. Macnichol tries Mooers but Mooers
shuts the door. It is now Christian, Moo-
ers, Macnichol, Tovet and Brown. But
just as you think Christian is headed for
yet another win, the caution comes out for
Christian and Mooers on lap 19. Christian
had gotten a little loose in turn 1 as Moo-
ers is close behind and gives Christian a
little tap spinning him out Not something
done on purpose but just one of those rac-
ing deals. Both Christian and Mooers are
sent to the rear for the restart ending one
of Mooers greatest runs of the year in sec-
ond.
New leader is now Macnichol who
takes the checkered over Michael Tovet,
Phil Brown, Grady Christian and Steve
Mooers. Grady and Bubba Christian took
the heat Wins.
Danny Vogel Jr. and Mark Taylor took
the heat wins for the Mini Stock division.
With $1000 on the line, there were nine-
teen cars in the field, the biggest field
thus far this year for the Mini Stocks.
Sean Babcock had the pole but it was
Nick Kerr who quickly took the point fol-
lowed by Danny Vogel Jr., Babcock,
Tommy Saunders and Jason Intoppo.
Saund6rs takes over third as Babcock set-
tles into fourth. Calvin Christian comes
into the picture as he takes over fourth as
Babcock slides backwards to sixth. Lap 4
sees the caution for a spin on the back-
stretch.
Vogel on.the inside, Kerr on the outside
as Kerr takes the point on the green fol-
lowed by Vogel, Christian, Saunders, and
Intoppo. Intoppo passes Saunders taking
over fourth as Saunders settles into fifth.
But Dan Kerr and Scott Mooers (who is
in. his brand new Mini-Stock and current-
ly leads the points in the Thunder Stock
class) makes their moves settling into
fourth and fifth.
Just as it is getting hot and heavy, the
caution comes out for Scott Burgess who
has spun in turn 2. Kerr on the inside, Vo-
gel on the outside as Kerr takes the point
on the green followed by Vogel, Intoppo,
Christian, and Saunders. Kerr finds his
hands full of a very hard charging Vogel
who is giving him some great side-by-
side action. Vogel takes the point as Kerr
settles into second followed by Christian,
Intoppo and Saunders. The caution comes
out on lap 12 for Dan Kerr who has hit
the frontstretch wall. Mooers spins in turn
2 but gets his spot back since he was not
the reason for the caution. Kerr takes his
ride in for the night.
With the race halfway completed, it is
single file restart as Vogel leads the way
over Kerr, Christian, Intoppo and Saun-
ders. But the caution comes out again on
lap 12 when Scott Mooers spins his brand
new Mini at the bottom of turn 2. Mooers
takes his ride into the pits, done for the
night. Kerr takes the point on the restart
but it is a short green as the yellow comes
out for Intoppo who has jumped the start
and must go to the rear for the restart.
Vogel takes the point on the restart fol-
lowed by Kerr, Christian, Saunders and
Babcock. Kerr fights back and retakes the
point putting Vogel second. However, it is
not over until the fat lady sings and she is
not singing yet, as Vogel retakes the point
on lap 15. Carl Thomas is smoking bad
and helping to kill those darn bugs, but
continues.
Paul Shumway spins in turn 2 as Mark'
Taylor, who lives close to me since he is
from Cocoa and I am from Merritt Island,
hits the frontstretch wall hard. Finney
Racing out of Merritt Island help Taylor
and will have some work to do before
Taylor can return fpr the next Mini Stock
race at Volusia. However, the important
fact is, Mark is not hurt only the car.
With only a few laps left, Vogel takes ,
the point on the restart and the checkered
to win $1000 followed by Nick Kerr,
Tommy Saunders, Calvin Christian and
Jason Intoppo. Mini Stocks will return
July 25 for another $500 tq Win night.
Volusia Speedway Park will.be closed

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) on
Thursday approved rule amendments
to make it crystal-clear that Florida
regulations apply to snook harvested
within or without state waters.
"Florida has taken the management
of its world-renowned snook fishery
seriously for 52 years," said FWC
Chairman Rodney Barreto. "These
rule amendments simply reinforce our
long-standing policy to protect and
sustain snook populations for today's
anglers and future generations."
The new rule amendments clarify
that the sale of snook harvested or tak-
en within or without the state is pro-


grandstand admission; roll a 7 or 11 and
be admitted for $7. On the program will
be six divisions, fan autographs, "Double
Down" points with Late Models, Modi-
fied, Street Stock, Thunder Stock and 4-
Cyl Challengers.

hibited (except for permitted brood
stock purposes) in order to fully pro-
tect Florida snook from illegal sales
and importation. *
The rules also clarify that no person
may possess any snook caught within
or without the state during snook
closed seasons, that snook harvested
within or without state waters must be
landed in a whole condition, and that
temporary possession of snook is al-
lowed only in order to determine com-
pliance with minimum and maximum
size limits.
These rule amendments will take ef-
fect in early September unless a public
hearing is requested.

Community asked to
help animal shelter win
$1 million makeover
Suwannee County Animal Shelter could be the recipi-
ent of a $1 million shelter makeover. All that is required
is registration at www.zootoo.com/makeover. Please use
zip code of 32062 for the shelter when registering. Par-
ticipation by all area residents is crucial, as we have
about three weeks to accumulate enough points to be in
the top 20. Fifty points are immediately accumulated just
by registering, and additional participation in various ac-
tivities on site will add more points.
There are no requirements by the public other than just
registering and your support. We can't stress enough the
importance of the community's support. A shelter
makeover could mean saving the lives of many stray ani-
mals here in Suwannee County.

Flyball racing classes
Too Hot to Handle Flyball Racing Team will be hold-

other team of four dogs over four hurdles to a box that
they leap upon to release a tennis ball, they catch the ball
and bring it back to their handler so that the next dog on
their team may then run the course. There are two
leagues that teams can compete in to win titles and
awards.

Medical Network


Customers who lose power should contact
SVEC. When the call is answered, the location
of the outage is recorded automatically by
SVEC automated outage-reporting system.
Customers can also speak directly to a company
representative if available. SVEC brings in
additional employees to respond to customer
calls during major storms, and it has
dramatically increased the number of incoming
telephone lines for its outage-reporting system.
But customers may experience busy'signals an.
longer-than-normal waits during times of high
call volumes.
Here are a few tips to follow for your safety)
* If someone in your home is dependent on medical
equipment requiring electricity, make arrangements
in advance for and alternative power source for
emergencies.
* If rising water threatens your home, turn off the
power at the circuit breaker panel or fuse box before
water enters your home. Have an electrician inspect
your system before turning the power back on after
flooding.
* Never replace a fuse or touch a circuit breaker with
wet hands, or while standing on a wet or damp
surface.
* If you see a downed power line, call SVEC to report
Its location.
* Avoid driving over downed power lines, Avoid
puddles near downed power lines.
* Plug only individual appliances into portable
generators. Never connect a generator to wall outlets,
building wiring or your home's electrical system.
* If you require transportation assistance during an
evacuation, register In advance with the Civil Defense
and Office of Emergency Management in your county.

&S uwannee
V alley
Electric
C ooperath


*To prepare for outages, it Is wise to have plenty of fresh
batteries for flashlights and radios.
* If you have a gasoline-powered electric generator, use it
in well-ventilated areas and only plug In Individual
appliances. Never connect a generator to a wall outlet of
your home or building's electrical system since that can
cause damage to your equipment and can be a life-.
threatening danger to your family, neighbors and repair
crews. Be sure to have adequate fuel for your generator
and manage consumption by running It for only a few
hours at a time.
* Prepare a list of essential itdms you would need In case
you are evacuated from your home and have them readily
available. Some of these Items could Include
medications, insulin, contact lenses/supplies, extra
eyeglasses and denture needs.
If your power goes out, wait at least five minutes before
reporting It to SVEC office In order to give our
automatic equipment time to restore power.
Listen to your local radio and TV stations for
weather updates and information from SVEC.

Unsightly scars are more

visible in summer
In the summertime, the living is fine and all about getting out in the great outdoors.
Warm weather lets us wear less clothes .. and expose more skin as we enjoy
some of our favorite outdoor pastimes.
Scars are more visible in summer for two reasons. First and foremost, scars we've
hidden under clothing the rest of the year are suddenly more visible In summer
months in bathing suits and shorts.
In addition, scars don't tan, so as skin surrounding the scar gets suntanned, the
scar looks whiter by contrast, making it even more visible.
Scars can also be embarrassing: Friends and family might inquire about the scar,
making you have to explain about it when you'd rather enjoy yourself. Strangers
may stare, making many people feel understandably self-conscious.
* Now you don't have to cover up those scars. Medical professionals know that you
can diminish the appearance of scars with certain creams and lotions. A good
scar-reducing product should contain silicone, which has been shown medically to
aid in the reduction of scars, along with herbal extracts from onion and green tea
for help in reducing the overall appearance of scars.
It is also important that your scar product conlain a sun block of at least SPF 15.
Scar tissue is particularly vulnerable to the sun's rays, so it's important that you
add extra protection to scars.
ScarZone(R) Scar Diminishing Cream has been developed by a plastic surgeon
for his patients. It has a special formula containing medically approved silicone to
help make scars appear flatter, smoother and closer to the skin's natural tone,
when massaged in twice daily. It also contains SPF 15, onion extract and green
tea. With ScarZone's unique formula, scars resulting from surgery, injuries, burns,
acne and stretch marks are visibly diminished, no matter how long you've had
your scar.
" Don't fret over old wounds. Everyone wants to look their best for beach season.
However, a winter's worth of skiing or snowboarding or even old scars and
scrapes from childhood can make even the best beach bodies feel self-conscious.
But unsightly scars resulting from surgery, injuries, burns, acne and even stretch
marks can easily be smoothed over.
"I recently had carpal tunnel surgery and an injury to my leg that left a long, knife-
like scar," says Susan B., from Highlands Ranch, Colorado. "Both were treated by
physicians and therapists with negative results. Then 1.tried ScarZone and in just a
few weeks the redness was gone, the scars are definitely fading. I would
absolutely recommend it to anyone."
ScarZone Scar Diminishing Cream is available in the skin care and first aid
departments of drug and food chains nationwide. And for more information or to
