 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.

4-H day camps



a big hit


By Brian Estevez
4-H/Youth Development
Suwannee County Extension


The 4-H Hamburger Day Camp 1
was held on June 9-11 and gave
young people the opportunity to ..
learn about and take part in the
production of a hamburger. The
three-day camp was open to youth in
Suwannee, Gilchrist and Hamilton
counties and had 22 participants. Participants visited the
University of Florida's Meat Processing Center and
learned about food and personal safety, ground beef
production, and packaging and retail of meat. Student
ambassadors and professors from the College of"
Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) then talked to the
participants about the opportunities found in CALS and


the Animal Sciences Department. Finally, the
participants ended up at Publix to learn about how meat is
purchased and sold at the grocery store chain.
On day two of the Hamburger Day Camp, participants
visited Beli Farms in Wellborn. Owner Emil Belibassis
gave a tour of his hydroponic tomato facilities and
allowed youth to sample some of his product. Beli Farms
also donated tomatoes to the participants. Next, the camp
visited the North Florida Research and Education Center-
Suwannee Valley to see field tomatoes. UF/IFAS
Extension agents gave a tour of the farm and taught the
participants about tomato production, hay for cattle
production, and marketing of agricultural products. The
second day of the camp ended with a nutrition lesson at
the Suwannee County Extension Office, where the
participants made healthy fruit smoothies.
The final day of the Hamburger Day Camp had
participants visiting the Publix Bakery to learn about
bread production. After the tour of the bakery, youth
learned about food safety and hand washing. To end the
camp, participants enjoyed a hamburger cookout.
Suwannee, Gilchrist and Hamilton 4-H would like to
thank everyone who took the time to make the
Hamburger Day Camp a success.
The 4-H Life 101 Day Camp was held on June 15-17
and provided youth the opportunity to learn everyday life
skills to help them succeed in life. Day one had the
participants performing a community service project at
the Suwannee County Museum. Along with museum
director Mr. Randy Torrance and museum volunteers, the
15 camp participants created the Suwannee County 4-H
exhibit. The exhibit included trophies, ribbons, record
books, and pictures from the long history of Suwannee
County 4-H.


The second day of the Life 101 Day Camp allowed
participants the opportunity to learn how to make
household cleaners using vinegar and water, how to iron
clothes and how to separate and wash laundry. The
participants also were able to learn how to read a tape
measure, hang a picture properly, use and start a
lawnmower, and how to check the air pressure in a tire.
� Participating youth were able to take home their very
own household cleaners, screwdriver, tape measure, and
air gauge.
The final day of the Life 101 Day Camp had youth
creating pudding with ingredients found in most
household kitchens. After making the pudding, Mrs.
Melissa Cameron taught the youth sign language. All
youth were able to sign their names and say simple
phrases at the conclusion of the camp. Finally every
youth learned how to do some simple magic tricks using
everyday items. The Life 101 Day Camp was very
successful and participants learned a lot about everyday
life skills.

Suwannee County 4-H day camps, please contact the
Suwannee County Extension Office at 362-2771.

OUR
Suwannee Democrat


'Business


as usual'
The controversy over Senate Bill 2080
wasn't just over water. Among other
things, the bill, signed into law Tuesday
by Gov. Crist, takes control over con-
sumptive use permits out of the hands of
water management governing boards and
awards it solely to a district's executive
director. Only if a director denies a per-
mit (for, say, a bottling plant on the
Suwannee) does the issue come before
the board.
Talk about a stacked deck.
Environmental concerns aside, we see
SB 2080 as an assault on open govern-
. ment. Public deliberation has been re-
placed by the private thought processes
of a single individual. All in the name of
"efficiency" in the permitting process,
we're told.
However, there's a loophole.
Crist didn't just sign the bill. Emulating
George W. Bush, who as President pio-
neered the practice, he included a signing
statement purporting to interpret the
statute.
Crist requested that "governing boards
and executive directors ... continue to in-
clude surface water and consumptive use
permits on all board meeting agendas or
other public meetings for discussion and
transparency purposes."
Crist doesn't say anything about voting
on permits. That would be a direct viola-
tion of the very law he's signing. And the
legal status of signing statements them-
selves is questionable to begin with.
Regardless, Suwannee River Water
Management Executive Director David
Still has put a positive spin on the situa-
tion. Already on record as questioning
the wisdom of SB 2080, Still sees the
glass as half full. Crist's statement does-
n't say governing boards should continue
to vote, Still concedes, but, as he told our
reporter, "it doesn't say we can't."
Good job, Mr. Still. And good job to
other water management directors
around the state who, it's rumored, will
follow suit. What you're doing, with the
complicity of Gov. Crist, may border on
civil disobedience in the view of some.
But if ever there was a time to stand up
for what's right, and for the public's right
to know, it's now.

Rant*



Want to vent? Our

hotline is open 24/7.

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

I remember the end of prohibition, illegal "numbers" games
and "coke" in Coca Cola. The last 70 years have shown me you
can't change human nature; it's smarter to adapt to it. When I
was growing up, people gambled and found alcohol no matter
how many millions were spent to stop them. (kind of like stop-
ping marijuana today?). Imported scotch and bourbon were
sold from the back of a garage, 3 doors down from my house.
People played the "numbers," watching Sunday's paper for the
winning numbers. (Does this sound a little like the lottery?) In
the end, government found that taxing alcohol and gambling
and creating the lottery provided better control and generated
income. We are fooling ourselves and sending lots of money
out of Suwannee County thinking we can make anything differ-
ent by limiting alcohol sales. If you go to the Lake City ABC
Store, why not buy gas (it's cheaper) and visit the Wal-Mart,
Lowe's and Home Depot (better selections) or the mall with
more stores. My wife likes the Food Lion there. Beyond that,
it's a little hypocritical to sell beer here so drinkers can still get
drunk at home or in their pickup, even on Sunday. Forbidding
alcohol sales on Sunday is no problem but the other 6 days
would increase tax revenue (needed), probably generate jobs
(needed) and hopefully help attract business (needed). Wake up
Suwannee County!!!

Before the zealots get started, pastors & politicians both earn
the daily bread from the working folks pocket. These pockets
ain't doing real well right now. The Bible & the constitution sep-
arate church & state. Freedom of religion also applies to, freedom
from religion!. If you gotta pay somebody to run your life & tell


LETTER TO THE EDITOR


To the Editor:

Under the guise of helping
to eliminate traffic in down-
town Live Oak, the county
and city have joined in on a
waste of our tax dollars. The
bypass will provide a way
for trucks entering Live Oak
on rt 90 headed west to avoid
the intersection of 90 and
129. In reality this will de-
crease traffic at this intersec-
tion by a meager 10 to 15%
and provide minimal relief
of the amount of trucks and
heavy traffic in downtown.
Why would we spend
$4,000,000 of state taxes and
$400,000 of county taxes
and $100,000 of city taxes
on a road that gives such a
small release to the so called
problem? There are many al-
ternative solutions to use that
would cost under $500,000.
If the truck traffic they are
talking about comes from
Lake City they could be di-
rected to I 10 at Wellbourn
and bypass the city of Live
Oak there. Another alterna-
tive would be to send them
up 417 and put an on ramp
. where 417 crosses 110 there.
A third alternative to solve
the problem of side walk
damage at the intersection of
90 and 129 is to make Con-
ner St NE a right turn lane
for west bound traffic on 90
and finishing that street off
for a sweeping right turn
with a traffic light coordinat-
ed with the light at 90 and
129. all of these alternative
suggestions would produce
the same affect and cost far
less.
How did the city and
county come up with the
start and end point for this


by-pass. Why end at 72st?
why not 70th st which would
make the total distance a bit
less and saye money. Why
start at 101st road? Why not
105th road which goes up to
just behind 70th and could
be connected easy with out
taking homes away from
people.
Who owns the land at the
proposed start and proposed
end of this bypass?
I am totally against this
bypass and eurge others who
are concerned about their
state and local taxes to write
their county, city, and state
legislators to stop this
waste....

ya' right from wrong, then your probably addicted to the "Opiate
of the masses". Nobody is telling you how to worship, don't tell

If the ocean was whiskey and I was a duck, I'd swim to the bot-
tom and never come up. I have heard about all I want to hear
about alcohol being sold in Suwannee County.
If you don't like it here, move. Go to another city or county or
even to another country where you can stomp your own grapes.
I am tired of our city being stomped. I thank God that this is not
your decision to make. Take your wining and your dining some-
where else.

Yeah, about us having a new hearing, about us having a new
hearing on the golf cart deal. Why shouldn't everyone be heard.
Let's have a new hearing, advertise it, let everyone be heard and
then make a decision on it. There's many, many people in Suwan-
nee County that don't believe they got a fair shake in the past city
council meeting. Thank you very much.

Yes, 1 am calling about the rant & rave about the polices about
the sheriffs saying about the seatbelts and stuff. I understand that
about the seatbelts, then I seen somebody in the rant and rave had
about people have their right if they want to wear their seatbelt
and if they don't want to wear their seatbelt, I mean I think it's a
good idea to wear seatbelts but also they need to push the issue
on the bus drivers. They need to have seatbelts on all the seats
for the kids to wear s eatbelts because I'm telling you I.work with
a business and I have seen those bus drivers and I mean they be
flying by and going fast. Those kids is not strapped in and I hon-
estly think they really need to put seatbelts on school buses. They
saying for the cars, the vehicles to fasten up seatbelts, I think the
buses need to have seatbelts so the kids can be fastened in too.
Thank you.

OPINION


MAYOR'S
CORNER


I BY SONNY NOBLES

Westwood Baptist did it again. The 35th annu-
al God and Country Day was a great success. As
always, the music was very stirring and the mes-
sage by Brother Jimmy Decs was very moving
and inspirational. The lunch afterwards wasn't
bad either. Boy those Baptists know how to put
on a feed. The City was represented by Council-
men Duce, Rewis, Stewart, and Clerk McCullers
along with our families. This was the 33rd God
and Country Day I have attended at Westwood,
haven't missed one yet. Others from county and
state governments were in attendance to cele-
brate the birth of our nation. Pastor Dees relayed
to us that the average length of time a nation


flourishes is 200 years. History shows us that na-
tions reach their pinnacle and then begin' a de-
cline due to many reasons. The USA is 233 years
old. Our nation is and has been the richest, most
influential and powerful nation for many
decades.. Are those days over? Brother Jimmy re-
minded and cautioned us not to become arrogant,
complacent and apathetic. Not to forget the prin-
ciples on which our nation was founded. Most of
the songs and documents that are the foundation
of our great country give credit to or call upon
God. In the first two paragraphs of the Declara-
tion of Independence, God is acknowledged,
twice. It states, "All men are created equal, that
they are endowed by their Creator with certain
unalienable rights." In the last paragraph, the De-
claration calls upon the "Supreme Judge of the
World" to assist in the creation of "free and inde-
pendent states." Last week, the marquee at the
First Baptist Church teaches us that God "gives
grace to the humble." We cannot forget our na-
tion's humble beginnings. We cannot give our-
selves credit for our greatness. We must remem-
ber from whence we came and who led us there.

It would be a shame to miss this
year's Fourth of July River Reunion.
It's the perfect way to celebrate our
country's independence. The River
Reunion lives up to its name as a
time to catch up with old friends and
renew family bonds.
"It's your typical all-American
celebration," said Cricket Byrd. "Vou
drive through town and see
everything dressed in red, white, and
blue, and people moving all around.
And in the afternoon, you start to
smell the barbecue in the air."
This year's Fourth of July
celebration promises to be even more
fun than in years past. The day will
include performances by Common
Ground Band and The William Scott
and Silverado Band, the Bedrock
Derby race, a hula hoop contest, an
all new scavenger hunt, and the
famous duck race at Ivey Park, just to
name a few of the events.
"It's so neat to see all of those little
yellow and white ducks dropping off
the bridge, there will be beaucoodles
of them," said Shirley Clark.
The parade line up is at 4 p.m. and
the parade starts at 5. The parade will
be led by The Big 98 with special
guest Dean Blackwell. There will
also be vendors and games
throughout.the day at Hatch Park.
According to River Reunion
chairman Shirley Hatch, this year's
fireworks show will be bigger and
better than ever, with more and better
quality fireworks. "Branford always
puts on a really good fireworks
display," noted Byrd. "One of the
best around here. Everyone comes
together and it feels very patriotic."
"My family always meets up after
the parade and we all eat and spend
time together while we wait for the
fireworks show. Lot's of visiting is
done," said Jean Brown. "After
you've been to Branford for Fourth
of July once, you never want to miss
it."

Branford's new

ice cream parlor

promises to 'take

you back in time'

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston @gaflnews.corn

Sprinkles ice cream parlor is now open for business in
Branford. It's shaping up to be a big hit.
"There was standing room only on opening day," said
owner Tammy White. "I wasn't prepared for such a
response, but it was a wonderful thing. This community is
wonderful as well and they've been so. supportive."
Tammy and her husband Jeff moved here a few years
ago from southeastern Florida to raise their three small
children, Madison, Mathew and Megan, in a tight knit
community. "We brought them here because we wanted
them to grown up in a small community where they
would grow to know better values," said White.
"My husband and I owned an ice cream parlor before
we moved here. We thought it would be nice to give this
community a full-order ice cream parlor," she said.
White says' their motto is "Take you back in time," and
that's exactly where you'll go when you try their old-time
floats and ice creams. Sprinkles also serves hot dogs and
other specialty items. Their specialty hot dog is called the
Branford Buccaneer Dog, a hot dog baked in special
dough and named in honor of Branford High.

Miss Florida Outstanding Teen


Branford girl gets a big send, off on her way to pageant


I- -ii


Trisch displaying
sportswear.


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston @gaflnews.comn

Catherine Trisch is calm and cool as a
pitcher on the softball field. She'll have to
retain that demeanor on stage next week
if she hope to well at Miss Florida's
Outstanding Teen pageant in St.
oi Petersburg, said Trisch's Executive
Coach.
Wednesday night her family, friends
and the Branford community wished her
the best during a "send off" party at
Branford's Shrine Club. Trisch performed
her talent, "The Mom Song,, and
participated in mock on stage interviews.
She also displayed her pageant attire,
which included several hand-made pieces.
Trisch initially began entering pageants
- as a way to earn scholarship money while
having fun and dressing up. However,
now that she's a little older and more


mature, her biggest reason for
participating is the community service
that is required of most pageant
participants, according to Trisch.
"Community service really forms you
as a woman," she said. "You get to see
what kind of change you can make
through your platform."
Her platform is "Bless the Vets." Trisch
has been doing a lot of work with
veterans in our area, visiting them and
dropping off gifts. Trisch says she also
appreciates the opportunity to mentor to
younger girls.
Trisch plans to use any scholarship
money earned to attend Princeton
University. She hope to one day design
golf courses.
"1 believe in speaking things into
reality," Trisch said. "Everyday I say 'I'm
Miss Florida Outstanding Teen.' If you
say it and believe it, it will happen."

Food for Thought

Whose Church Is It Anyway?
It never ceases ito amaze me as I drive across this
great county of ours the names on some of the
church buildings. Some of these names have NO
reference to Goid or Christ! Sometimes I wonder,
"What are their beliefs?" What would a non-
Christian think? You might see the "Cowboy
Church" or even the "Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual and
Transgender" church. I read where there was a
church for NON-BELIEVERS! What does the
Bible teach or does it matter anymore?
1) Jesus Is The BUILDER Of The Church! Matt.
16:18 Jesus said, "Upon this rock I will build MY
church." A church built on ANYONE or
ANYTHING else is not nor does not have divine
authority!
2) The Church BELONGS To Jesus! Understand,
it is NOT your church, my church, your parents
church. It must be Jesus' singular, possessive
church. Jesus died for the church [Acts 20:28].
Jesus will save the church in the end [Eph. 5:23].
3) Does The Church You Belong To Have A
Biblical Name? Whose church is it anyway? What
is in a name? What if we called it Satan's church, 1
mean, if it doesn't matter? [Rom. 16:16]

Mayor's Corner


Continued From Page 6A

If so, arc we destined to fall
victim to the 200-year rule?
God Bless America!
As we celebrate our na-
tion's birthday, let's espe-
cially remember the men
and women of our nation's
armed forces that are serv-
ing overseas. They are still
dying in defense of democ-
racy around the world. Over
4,330 have made the ulti-
mate sacrifice in the war, 15
just this month. May God
watch over and protect each
one of them.
The next round of swim
lessons sponsored by the
Live Oak, Suwannee Coun-
ty Rec. Department begins
July 7. Morning and
evening classes are avail-
able. With all the pools,
lakes and rivers in our area,
knowing how to swim is a
must. Whether you take ad-
vantage of these swim
lessons or teach your kids
yourself, just do it. Water at-
tracts kids like a magnet. Al-
ways be conscious of poten-
tial water hazards and watch
your children continuously.
You can't take your eyes off
of them for a minute around
water. The 4th is always a
very dangerous time for wa-
ter tragedies to occur with
all the picnics and other ac-
tivities taking place on or
near water.
As Mayor, I am required
by ordinance to remind you
to keep your property "free
from weeds, underbrush or
trash, and to remove the
same from said premises."
The City of Live Oak looks
better than it ever has.
Through your efforts and
concern and your desire to
keep our city beautiful and
provide for health and safe-
ty, the City of Live Oak is an
attractive and safe place to.
live. Code Enforcement
does an outstanding job in
addressing issues of non-
compliance when the ordi-
nances are not followed.
Also, I again ask that yard
clippings not be brown in


the gutters when mowing.
These clippings end up in
storm drains. Over the
years, the buildup of sand
and grass clippings in the
pipes seriously restricts the
flow of storm water and in-
creases the possibility of
creating flooding problems.
Evidently, the golf cart is-
sue is not over. Many ques-
tions have arisen since it
was passed by the Council
last month.
. Remember the Branford
River Reunion this Satur-
day, the 4th of July. Music,
food, the duck race and pa-
rade along with many other
activities are on the agenda.
They have some of the best
fireworks anywhere. If
you're lucky, you might-
even get to see Mayor Don
Owens.
Bids for the sidewalk pro-
ject came last week at
$91,205. The city is going to
get a lot of sidewalks re-
paired and replaced for the
money.
I remind you of the Live
,Oak Fire Departments "fill
the boot campaign." Fire-
fighters and volunteers are
in area parking lots collect-
ing money for the fight
against muscular dystrophy.
Last week they were out in
the heat and this week in the
rain. Monday they collected
$214 during the rain plus
ran seven firefighting calls.
Is that dedication or not?
Alan has a little friendly
competition going between
three teams of paid firefight-
ers and volunteers to see
who can collect the most
money. He has promised the
winning team a lunch. Put a
little change or a few green-
backs in the boot. You can
even drop a check or cash
by the Fire Station. Let's
live up to our reputation as
being THE CARING
COMMUNITY and helping'
them reach their $4,000
goal this year.
I also remind you that not
wearing your seatbelt is
now a primary offence. A
ticket can cost you over


$100. Ouch, that would hurt
my pocketbook. Evidently
many are still not wearing
their belts for various rea-
sons or out of forgetfulness.
Over and over again, 1 read
and hear reports of deaths
and serious injury due to the
fact that seatbelts are not be-
ing worn. You hear them
also. Okay, I'll shut up about
wearing your seat belts. Nah,
just kidding. If aggravating
you about wearing your belts
will help save someone from
death or serious injury, I will
be rewarded. I had a friend
several weeks ago tell me
that I had worn him down
and he was trying to get in
the habit of wearing his belt.
That a boy!
I welcome our new Coun-
ty Coordinator Murphy
McLean. He has a big job
ahead of him. I'm sure he
will be up to the task. Good
luck Murphy.
I hope everyone has an en-
joyable and safe 4th of July
weekend. Watch those kids
around water, drive safely
and uh, no, I'm not going to
tell you again to wear your
belts. Just do what you want
to do.

Crist included a signing
statement with the bill
urging water management
boards and executive di-
rectors to continue to in-
clude surface water and
consumptive use permits
on board meeting agendas
for the purposes of "dis-

The signing statement -
the legal authority of which
is itself ambiguous - does-
n't say anything about dis-
trict boards continuing to
vote on water use permits.
However, noted SRWMD


Executive Director David

"Business as usual'

cried passage of the bill.
"They have taken the in-
dividual right underneath
the land on which we stand

given control of it to a
faceless politically ap-

Luraville's Lonnie Jolson

makes music his way


Continued From Page 1A

tial musicians. Names like
Hank Williams Jr., Loretta
Lynn and Molly Hatchet
come up routinely in con-
versation.
Jolson grew up as a mi-
grant worker, picking cot-
ton in Missouri, Arkansas,
Tennessee and elsewhere.
"My mother raised me,
and that's all she knew was
working on a farm," said
Jolson. "We went where
the work was."
Jolson says they usually
lived in migrant camps,
living in tents.
"Sometimes the camps
were full of bad types of
people, outlaws and
thieves," said Jolson.
"Most of the time, howev-
er, you were surrounded by
the best people you could
ever hope to meet."
Jolson describes himself
as a "modern day gypsy."
"It was a rough life," he
said. "When I discovered I
had real talent, I realized I
could make a lot more
money playing music than
picking cotton."
Jolson's family moved to
a migrant camp in
Immokalee when he was
around 16, at about the
same time as he bought his
first guitar.
."At first I just jammed
with friends, soon I started
playing at the local clubs
and stuff," said Jolson. "I
would use a fake ID to play
at the bars. I can remember
getting fired from playing
at one bar because I was
underage."
Still, it wasn't long be-
fore a record company got
word of Jolson's unique
style, and before recording
a complete album, he was
sent on a whirlwind tout of
Europe.
"I played in Paris,
France, Switzerland, Italy,
Greece, even Bulgaria.
Yeah, you'd be surprised
how much Europeans
loved county music back
then. Country stars were
big. They even listened to
old stuff like Hank," said
Jolson. "They're a different
breed over there."
It was in the early 80s
that Jolson released his
first true album in
Nashville, with the help of
Charlie McCoy. Over the
next few years he opened
for Alabama, the Allman
Brothers, Molly Hatchet
and the Bellamy Brothers,
among others.
Jolson calls his style of
music "country honk." The
term comes from the title
of a Rolling Stones song, a
country version of "Honky
Tonk Women."
"It's somewhere between


the Stones and Hank
Williams, with a little ZZ
Top thrown in there," said
Jolson with a chuckle.
"Ask any musician and
they'll tell you they love all
genres of music. All of it is
good to me. A good song's
a good song, you know
what I mean?"
Most of Jolson songs are
about Florida and nature,
places he's lived and peo-
ple he's known.
"I always enjoyed writ-
ing about the land," Jolson
said. Jolson has an album
called Gator Tails and
.writes songs like Swamp,
You've Sure Been a
Woman to Me.
"My favorite song of
mine is called Million Dol-
lar Log," said Jolson. It's
about a log outside of a bar
in Immokalee. Local joke
that a millions dollars
worth of wine has been
drank sitting on this partic-
ular log. Some hobo was
telling me the story one
day, so I decided to write a
song about it."
Jolson has collected
countless stories during his
country music career. One
of his favorite memories
concerns Loretta Lynn's
son, Ernest Ray.
Ernest Ray wanted to es-
cape the media coverage
that surrounded his family
after the release of "Cold
Miner's Daughter," a
movie based on Loretta
Lynn's life.
"He came down to Flori-,
da and lived in my home
for four months while play-
ing in my band. I liked to
call him Erl," said Jolson."
Loretta would call the
house to check on him and
I'd call out 'Erl, your
mama's on the phone'."
When another son of
Loretta Lynn's died, a pop-
ular magazine called Jol-
son asking for Loretta's
contact information.
"They offered me a full
layout in their magazine if
I'd give up her phone num-
ber," Jolson said. "But I re-
fused. I wasn't going to
give them that woman's
phone number when she
had just lost a son."
Today Jolson lives in Lu-
raville just outside of
Lafayette County. Jolson
and his family have lived
in the area for 11 years
now. His new band, The
Lonnie Jolson Band, is
based in Live Oak and al-
ready playing live at sever-
al venues around North
Florida. The band's songs
are currently being played
on several radio stations in
Florida, and they hope
their songs will continue to
be picked up by more local
radio stations.

edition of Excellence Award
by the 2,600 member Gen-
eral Practice Solo and
Small Firm Section of the
Florida Bar.
The award is given once
annually to a lawyer or ju-
rist. The recipient must
have made contributions to
enhance the standing of the
general practice lawyers in
Florida.
"I was honored to re-
ceive it, particularly so af-
ter I saw who else received
it before me," said Sellers.
Former recipients in-
clude former Florida
Supreme Court Chief Jus-
tices Major Harding, Ben
Overton and Ray Ehrlich as
well as former state Attor-
neys General Bob Butter-
worth and Jim Smith.
Smith, also former secre-
tary of state, was the 2008
recipient. Past Florida Bar
Presidents Patricia Seitz
and Ben H. Hill II are on
the list as well.
Sellers has practiced law
since 1962, the same year
he graduated from the Uni-
versity of Florida's College
of Law and was admitted to


the Florida Bar.
"Since 1962 1 have en-
gaged in a civil general
practice representing
clients in the United States
district courts of seven
states, the state courts of
five states and in the cir-
cuit courts of 30 of Flori-
da's 67 counties," Sellers
said by email. "I have giv-
en lectures at Florida Bar
continuing legal education
courses in Pensacola, Tal-
lahassee, Jacksonville, Or-
lando and Naples. For the
last seven years, I have an-
nually given a two-hour
lecture on the subject of
seed litigation at the UF
College of Law. In addi-
tion, I have given a number
of lectures on Agricultural
Products Liability Law at
the UF College of Agricul-
ture."
Sellers served in numer-
ous local and state posts
which include: president of
the Third Circuit Bar Asso-
ciation, president of
Suwannee County Cham-
ber of Commerce, chair-
man of the Board of Direc-
tors for Suwannee County
Hospital, 24 years as direc-
tor of the Advent Christian


Village and chairman of the
board for 1973-74, director
and treasurer of the Suwan-
nee County Fair Associa-
tion and trustee at First
Baptist Church. He
presently serves on the
Share Council of the UF
Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Services, the UF
College of Law Alumni
Council and the Suwannee
County Development Au-
thority.
Sellers said he does not
know who nominated him
for the award. Each spring,
nominations are solicited in
The Florida Bar News. A
nomination letter explain-
ing why the nominee de-
serves the Tradition of Ex-
cellence Award is sent to
the section administrator of
the General Practice Solo

alleged crime spree is even
more widespread than orig-
inally thought. Homes
from Tampa to 'Georgia
may have been struck as
well, she said.
Suspects Michael
Christopher Hackle, 27;
Cody Eugene Pridgeon, 23;
Dwayne Mertz, 38; and
Allen Lynn Thomson, 36,
are being held at the Dixie
County jail.
Federal RICO (Racke-
teer Influenced and Cor-
rupt , Organizations)
charges have been filed
against Hackle and Prid-
geon, records show. Ac-
cording to Hatton, more ar-
rests are expected. Hatton
say these arrests will most
likely take place in Dixie
County, since the majority
of stolen items are known
to have been sold in that
county.
A meeting to discuss the
details of how this case will
be handled was held be-
tween Taylor, Suwannee,
Madison, Levy, Dixie, and
Lafayette county law en-


forcement representatives
on June 23, according to
Hatton. These counties
have agreed to combine
charges and hold a single
trial. Law enforcement, in
Hamilton and Gilchrist
counties have not yet fin-
ished processing evidence
and were not present at the
meeting. "Paperwork is
still coming in as we
speak," said Hatton.
The, majority of counties
affected are still process-
ing paperwork and assess-
ing how many homes were
affected.' It appears that
about ten homes were bur-
glarized per county struck,
said Hatton. Fifty burglar-
ies were confirmed at the
meeting.
"We'll know once all the
counties affected have filed
their reports, but over one
hundred homes affected is-
n't out of the realm," said
Hatton.
Hatton says it could take
as long as one year for this
case to go to trial, due to
the large number, of coun-
ties affected and agencies
involved.

CARES - the County
Alliance for Responsible

Florida Farm Bureau and
the Suwannee River Part-
nership to highlight ef-
forts by farm owners to
improve natural resource
management in the
Suwannee River Basin.
The partnership includes
local, regional, state and
federal, agencies, re-

Farm owners who have
met verifiable standards of
excellence in resource
management receive a
CARES designation and
earn the privilege of post-
ing a sign on their proper-

award winners for their
good work. One of the
keys to the success of the
program involves site vis-

assess the implementation

Examples of BMPs in-

"Farmers have long been
good stewards of the land,"
Scot Eubanks, assistant di-

available, farmers are able
to be even more proactive

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Sportabout
The draft By Tom Daniels
d Continued From Page 1B
and stars Howe played professional
hockey in five different


decades. The NBA story
was Shaq. He got traded
again.
Times have not changed
in pro basketball when it
comes to big men. Wilt
Chamberlain was traded


from San Francisco to
Philadelphia to Los
Angeles and he was better
then O'Neill. Kareem
Jabbar was traded from
Milwaukee to Los Angeles
he was better then Shaq
also. Bill Russell never
left Boston and somehow
won more titles then
anyone else. Russell
wasn't better than the
others.
Now that you're mad I
refer to their acting skills.
Chamberlain tried to kill
the governor of California
when he starred in "Conan
The Barbarian" (not a lot
of talking roles). Who
could forget (or
remember) Jabbar's roll as
an airline pilot in
"Airplane"? Shaq of
course has been a guest
star on many TV shows
but is more renowned for
his part in "Blue


Chips"(never saw It). I'
don't remember Bill
Russell ever being in
movies but he may have
been the best big man
ever, and I hated the
Celtics.
The NHLrefers to
Ovechkin as a rock star
and Crosby as a movie star
but there are not too many
pretty faces in the NHL.
Now the NFL gave us Ed
Marinaro, Brian Bosworth,
Fred Dryer, Rosey Grier,
Merlin Olsen, Dan
Blocker, Jim Brown, Ivan
Dixon and Fred "The
Hammer" Williamson. I
may have missed a few but
most of them couldn't act
that well anyway. Does
Joe Namath ring a bell?
Baseball may have given
us the best remembered in
Chuck Connors. The
Riflemen was on the
screen longer then he


would ever last as a ball
player. The ex-ball player,
who was a heartthrob for
three decades, and was
watched by very few men
and is known to most
woman over the age of 40?
Dr. Steve Hardy of
General Hospital starred in
that soap opera for 33
years. Johnny Berardino
played Major League
baseball for 11 years
before becoming that TV
star. He was an infielder
for the St. Louis Browns
twice, the Cleveland
Indians twice and the
Pittsburgh Pirates twice.
That was his baseball
claim to fame that he had
played for three different
teams two different times.
He passed away in 1996 as
maybe the best actor to
ever play baseball. His star
is on the Hollywood Walk
Of Fame.

4 million fry

produced at
Blackwater

this spring
The staff at the Blackwa-'
ter; Fisheries Research and
Development Center has
been busy this spring pro-
ducing more than 4 million
fish for Florida waters.
Dave Yeager, one of the
senior fisheries biologists
at the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) facili-
ty near Holt, said the fish
include striped bass, white
bass, hybrid striped bass
and largemouth bass. The
fingerlings were either
stocked in Panhandle wa-
ters or taken to the Florida
Bass Conservation Center
in Webster or the Welaka
National Fish Hatchery in
Palatka.

Counsel the Doubtful

The third spiritual work of mercy is to
counsel the doubtful. We are hereby
instructed to bolster the faith and
confidence of those who doubt. This may
involve reassuring others that God cares
about them and that He has everything
under control, or it may involve an even
more basic assurance that God exists. On
the other hand, if someone is convinced
that God does not exist, counseling the
doubtful may simply involve telling them
that God cares about them nonetheless,
and that His love for them is not
conditioned upon their belief in Him.
Sometimes a person's doubts are of a
more personal nature; many of us suffer from
low self-esteem and a lack of confidence in our
own abilities. Counseling these people may
simply involve telling them to trust themselves.
Self-doubt can be crippling, and a reassuring pat
on the back and some words of encouragement
from a'trusted friend or family member may
often be all that is needed to melt away any
lingering doubts. As always, we should counsel
others with tact and discretion, remembering
that our advice, especially if unsolicited, may
not always be welcomed. Therefore, we should
carefully reflect on how we might counsel the
doubtful, in order to best restore their faith and
confidence.


And convince some, who doubt.
R.S.V. Jude 22

Happy

America
In our
gratitude for
the freedom .
we enjoy as
citizens this
Indepen-
dence Day,
we must also
admit the re-
ality of seri-
ous chal-
lenges facing
our great Head
country: the MUat
economy, MatteI
outside By Angie L
threats,
health care
and the environment, just
to name a few. Freedom
brings a measure of risk
and uncertainty and the li-
ability of our choices; the
right choices will main-
tain our freedom, the
wrong ones will strip it
from our nation. Who will
we entrust the keeping of
this privilege?
Given that the driving
force behind America's
birth was religious free-
dom, it is strange that
while our country is asso-
ciated with independence,
Christians have long con-
vinced the world that we
are anything but free. It is
the common perception
that Christians have a
long list of impossible
rules to live by, (hence
their sour dispositions.) In
his book "A Scandalous
Freedom", author Steve
Brown tells the following
story:
Abraham Lincoln went
to a slave market. There
he noted a young, beauti-
ful African-American
woman being auctioned
off to the highest bidder.
He bid on her and won.
He could see the anger in
her eyes and could imag-
ine what she was think-
ing, "Another white man
who will buy me, use me
and then discard me." As
Lincoln walked off he
turned to the woman and
said, "You're free."
"Yeah. What does that
mean?" she replied.
"It means that you're
free.",
"Does that mean I can
say whatever I want to
say?"
"Yes," replied Lincoln,
smiling, "it means that


r
a


you can say whatever you
want to say."
"Does it mean," she
asked incredulously, "that
I can be whatever I want
to be?"
"Yes, you can be what-
ever you want to be."
"Does it mean," the
young woman asked
hesitantly "that I can
, go wherever I want to
go?"
"Yes, it means you
are free and can go
< wherever you want to
go."
"Then," said the
I young woman with
tears welling up in
her eyes, "I think I'll
go with you."
Galatians 5:1 says,
"It is for freedom that
S Christ has set us free.
nd Stand firm then and -
do not let yourselves
be burdened again by
a yoke of slavery." Pic-
ture this newly freed
young woman living and
perhaps even serving in
Lincoln's home, not be-
cause she must, but be-
cause she chooses, out of
gratitude and for her own
protection. That is real
freedom! In her world,
there would always be
those waiting to take her
back to slavery ... she
would not stay free on her
own, neither will we. God
gives us freedom because
He wants us to choose
Him, but He doesn't make
the choice for us. As
Americans, we must un-
derstand that there will al-
ways be those who will
seek to destroy the free-
dom we enjoy.
2 Corinthians 3:17 as-
sures us that "Where the
Spirit of the Lord is, there
is freedom." Pray for
America to return to "One
Nation Under God" this
July 4. God wants to bless
America, it is up to us
whether He does.

Blessings and
a Happy 4th!.

Let's have a 4th of July picnic


By Rev. James L. Snyder

Second to Christmas, a favorite
holiday of mine is the 4th of July.
Perhaps this rings true with many
Americans this year. But what year
would be complete without the
obligatory 4th of July picnic. I think
somewhere in the Constitution our
forward thinking forefathers includ-
ed a clause making this a required
activity for American citizenship.
I am not one for parades. If you
have seen one parade, you have
seen them all. I can think of some-
thing better to do than standing
along the streets with a herd of
noisy people I do not know watch-
ing silly little floats go by.
And when it comes to fireworks
displays, I have seen them all. I
have a hard time justifying setting a
couple hundred dollars on fire just
for the amusement of it all.
But what I do like about the 4th
of July is the picnic. I have never
met a picnic I did not enjoy. I can
wade in among people I do not even
know and enjoy myself if there is a
nice picnic spread before me.
Everybody's joke is funny as long
as the picnic basket holds up.
It has been several years since my
wife and I have enjoyed a little pic-
nic by ourselves. This past week the
Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage
surprised me by announcing right
out of the blue, "Let's have a pic-
nic."
Even though the announcement
caught me off guard, I recuperated
quickly and responded with a, "hot
diggity dog, yes." There are many
things I am slow at, but that list
does not include a picnic. I would
go to a picnic at the drop of a hat.
The problem is, I am prone to drop
everything but my hat.
The picnic announcement put me
in a rather happy mood.
I suppose it has been a long time
since we have had a picnic by our-


selves. In fact, it has been so long
that I had for gotten all the things
involved in having a picnic. I was
soon to discover those "things."
"Here is a list," my wife said as
she shoved it into my hands, "run to
the grocery store and get everything
on this list."
I do not remember this activity
being part of having a good time at
a picnic. As I got into my car to go
to the store, I just chalked this up to
my failing memory.
When I got to the checkout
counter the young lady behind the
.counter rung up my purchases ahd
said in a very cheery voice, "That
will be $39.47, please."
It is a good thing she said please.
As I pulled two $20 bills from my
wallet I thought of all the things I
could buy with that money. But, I
grabbed the grocery bag and headed
for my car to go home.
When I got home,.I was greeted
by my wife at the door with a truck-
load of "stuff' she said was for our
picnic. "Load these into the car so
we can get started for our 4th of
July picnic."
Thirty minutes later, we were fi-
nally in the car on the road to the
picnic area. About this time, I was
feeling a little fatigued about this
whole idea of a 4th of July picnic.
But, I thought to myself, the worst
is over and I can enjoy'the rest of
the day.
Either somebody is listening to
my thoughts or my thoughts have
no merit at all. When we got to the
picnic area my wife said, "Okay,
unpack the car and we will get start-
ed." With that, she quickly claimed
the picnic table with the barbecue
grill for our convenience.
Thirty minutes later, I had finally
unpacked the car and was about to
sit down when further instructions
came my way.
"Now," my wife said, "start
grilling those hamburgers and hot-

dogs we brought."
I know that grilling is a man's
job, but I would like to meet the
person who made this kind of job
assignment. Not only am I a terrible
griller, but I burn things beyond
recognition. Then I have to put up
with my wife asking me, "Is this a
hamburger or hot dog?"
I do not mind so much her asking
that question but it is the way she
asks it. Not to mention her laughing
when she asks. Then she has the au-
dacity to say, "This is the best ham-
burger you've ever made. No, wait
a minute. This is a hot dog. I'm sor-
ry."
Thirty minutes later when she
stops laughing, she says, "Well, I
guess it's time to pack up and go
home."
Thirty minutes later the car was
all packed and we were on the road
headed for home. The silence is
broken by my wife saying, "I really
love 4th of July picnics."
When I thought about it, I came
to the same conclusion. Sure, pic-
nics are a whole lot of work, but
then they are a lot of fun as well,
the fatigue notwithstanding.
During the 4th of July celebra-
tion, we need to remember that free-
dom and liberty comes at great cost.
The apostle Paul understood this
in the spiritual realm when he
writes, "Stand fast therefore in the
liberty wherewith Christ hath made
us free, and be not entangled again
with the yoke of bondage." (Gala-
tians 5:1 KJV).
When we cease working for our
liberty, we will eventually end up in
bondage.

bass we collected wild
white bass and stripers
from our rivers or lakes,
but this past year we held
both species in tanks at
our facility," Yeager said.
"Maintaining the fish on
site saved us significant
time and effort."
He said the high-tech
method of producing
stripers in the past in-
volved injecting female
fish with humrn chorionic
gonadotropin (HCG) hor-
mone to stimulate egg de-
velopment and spawning.
When striper eggs are very
early in the developmental
stage, Yeager said, HCG
doesn't work well.

Blackwater staff developed
a new hormone technique.
'Using the new technique _
this'spring they produced'
more than 1 million striper
fry.
In an effort to uiasure
stocking success, Teager
said, striped bass and white
bass fingerlings stocked in
the Ochlockonee River and
lakes Talquin and Seminole
were marked with a dye
that produces a yellow
mark in the bones of fish.
By marking the stocked
fingerlings, biologists
should be able to determine
to what extent hatchery-
produced fish contribute to
the population, versus nat-
ural reproduction.
Although the emphasis
was mostly on species oth-
er than largemouth bass,
Yeager said the hatchery
produced and stocked
35,000 fingerling large-
mouth bass in Lake
Talquin. All of the bass are
tagged with small, metal
micro-tags. He said the mi-
cro-tags will be useful in
the future for looking at
survival rates.

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.
