 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 project puts
critiques on video


Kenna Peacock and Josiah Cook prepare their
video review at the Live Oak Public Library.

By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews,.com
The Live Oak Public Library recently
completed a project they hope will be a hit
among young adults.
. Video Voices, Library Teens: Being Seen,
Being Heard was spearheaded by Technical
Services Coordinator Sherry Millington.
A contest was held in February to choose one
book reviewer/video star and one videographer.
Twelve-year-old Josiah Cook was chosen as the
video star and 16-year-old Kenna Peacock, the
videographer. The purpose of the project was
for Cook to select a book and review it on tape,
captured by Peacock. Cook selected the book
"Scat" by Carl Hiaasen. After editing, the video
was placed on the library's Web site as well as
YouTube.
Millington said the book choice, creative
style and acting were all up to Cook and
Peacock.
"They decided how it was going to be done,"
said Millington. "We gave them guidance but
the creative part was them."

Public hearing set to
discuss energy rate hike
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
State Senator Charlie Dean's office has
requested a series of public hearings by the
Public Service Commission to discuss Progress
Energy's recent application for rate increases
after the company overpaid by millions of
dollars in fuel costs.
The PSC recently ruled that more than 1.6
customers of Progress Energy will get refunds,
plus interest, after the company overpaid for
coal. PSC found that Progress Energy overpaid
$7.6 million during 2006 and 2007. The refunds
will be given beginning in 2010.
"I am very pleased with (the) decision by the
Public Service Commission," Dean said in a
press release Tuesday. "I hope in the future, all
energy utilities will seek the lowest cost source
for their fuel purchases."
The hearing in this area is scheduled for
tomorrow at 10 a.m. at City Hall in Live Oak.

Agritourism



in Wellborn

By Bonnie Scott
Wellborn was founded in 1860
when cotton was king and one of
the largest cotton warehouses in . .
the area was within its town --- " '
limits. Wellborn developed into a 1V
thriving rural community '
conveniently located at a railroad
junction and the main north-
south artery (now CR 137).
Wellborn, with a rich agricultural
history of farms dating back for
generations, shipped cotton,
lumber, naval stores vegetables,-
eggs and poultry by railroad.
Agribusiness flourished from
1870-1900. From 1890-1920, timber, turpentine and
cotton were the major crops. When the trains no longer
stopped at the Wellborn railroad depot and economic
recession began after 1920, many small communities like
Wellborn disappeared except for a few dirt roads and old
houses.
Wellborn struggled on even as the younger generation
left the farms for the cities in the 1940s. Despite the Great
Depression, World War II and the need for a city water
system, Wellborn survived. In the 1960s, some who had
left for city life began to return to rural life. Wellborn


finally got its water system in 1975, which served 114 of
the 350 residents. The trend toward return to rural life
continued through the 1970s and '80s. Today, Wellborn
residents enjoy a peaceful rural ambience, yet recently
held its 16th annual Blueberry Festival which attracts
folks from all over Florida and the Southeast.
Nearly 90 percent of the Suwannee River Valley
Region farms are small. Throughout the years, farm
production has shifted from cattle, tobacco, cotton, and
corn to a diverse group producing vegetables, timber,
fruit, hay and livestock. Several horse farms operate in
Wellborn, and Geiger orchids are famous throughout the
U.S. Area farms strive to remain viable in an uncertain
economy and marketplace changes. One area of
diversification is agritourism. Agritourism is outdoor
recreation based on working farms that provide visitors
with authentic farm life experiences through culture,
history, education and entertainment at a reasonable fee.
One of the first examples of agritourism was the dude
ranch out west that offered a vacation experience to "city
slickers." U-Pick fruit and vegetable farms are examples
of agritourism in our area. U-Pick farms are often
seasonal depending on their produce and agritourism
lends itself well in making the farm more viable during its
off-season.
On June 30, Scott's Blueberry Farm hosted a gardening
� seminar conducted by certified Master Gardener and
author Barbara Barker. Barbara.operates
containergradeningforhealth.com, an Internet company
that sells gourmet varieties of vegetable and herb plants.
Her book is titled Container Gardening for Health, which
talks about the 12 most important fruit and vegetables for
your organic garden. She provided participants a wealth
of information about organic gardening, composting,
container gardening, cuttings, pruning, and caring for
container'plants. She also provided hands-on experience
allowing each one to take cuttings from the many
varieties of aromatic herbs she had brought with her.
Barbara is an excellent speaker and teacher not only

experience with various aspects of gardening. She is
available for workshops and her book is available for
purchase at a reasonable cost. When she is not gardening,
she spends time with her sons, Rhett and Brian, and you
might sometimes see her at All Springs Veterinary
Hospital in Wellborn where her veterinarian husband, Dr.
Richard Barker, practices.


Gear Up Florida team

makes a stop in Live Oak


If you noticed the young men on sleek
European style bicycles traveling
through Live Oak recently, you may
wonder why they were here. Since 1997,
almost 300 undergraduates and alumni
of the national college fraternity Pi
Kappa Phi have participated in Gear Up
Florida. Gear Up Florida was created
with one mission in mind- to reach out
to as many people as possible across the
State of Florida, spreading a message of
acceptance and understanding on behalf
of people with disabilities.
This year's 800-mile statewide
cycling event kicked off with riders
leaving from the shores of Miami. Their
cycling journey took them through the
Florida orange fields, reached the Gulf
coast, passed through Orlando,
zigzagged back to the Atlantic coast
followed by a stop- over in Live Oak
and finally culminated at the State


Capitol in Tallahassee. This year, the 31
riders raised over $92,000 to benefit
people with disabilities
After completing the longest leg of
their journey by riding almost 100 miles
from Jacksonville to Live Oak, the team
was greeted by their friends from
Comprehensive Community Services
who joined them for dinner at the CCS
Training Center. This year, Gear Up
Florida awarded CCS with a $750 grant
to be used toward the purchase of
building materials for a covered pavilion
at Training Center located on Goldkist
Boulevard. CCS Executive Director
Bobbie Lake indicated they still need
funds for the project. DQnations can be
mailed or dropped off at the CCS main
office located at 511 Goldkist Blvd SW,
Live Oak, FL 32064 and should be
marked "Pavilion." Contributions can
also be made at www.ccsnfl.com.

I would like to install my
own laminate flooring;
can you give me some tips?


IA Yes we canl Installing straight runs of laminate
* in the middle of the room is straightforward
* enough, but things get tricky at the doorways.
When'it comes to laminate floonng installation, most of the
"fun" occurs tt the doorways. First. pull the hinge pins and
remove the doors. They're probably hollow core doors and
so weigh almost nothing. If left hung, they'll just get in the
way Undercut the door jambs. For a professional looking
finih, the laminate planks have to slide under the door
trim. Di.aw a horizontal pencil line the thickness of the
luninatn' and the underlaymient and use a coping saw to
iiiicIelCu it. There will be inmes when it's absolutely
nip',:il'lc to) both snap llhe laniiiate planks together and
get the laminate under the door jamb. When this happens,
use a sharp utility knife to shave off the locking part of the
laminate edges while leaving the flat part of the connector
intact. This will allow sliding the two planks together to
mate. Be sure to add a small bead of wood glue to ensure
that the planks will remain mated. For more information
stop by Live Oak Paint & Flooring or give us a call.

Pound for


pound, it'


bad idea


Routinely we hear about the obesity
problem in America. Much commen-
tary has been offered on the subject,
but today I received a suggestion from
the Heartland Institute which was a .
new twist.
Steve Stanek says that obese people
should be taxed directly as opposed to
taxing sugar-ladened foods like soft Dwain Walden
drinks. At first, I couldn't really tell if
this was tongue'n cheek commentary
because he sounded pretty upset. He says an occasional
Royal Crown Cola (160 calories) does not cause him to
gain weight, and he likens taxes on obesity-producing
foods for everyone to regulations against the possession
of a firearm by a responsible, law abiding person.
Then I realized he had to be a bit. facetious. The pri-
mary reason is that too many factors would be involved
in a fat tax. Would we have fat police patrols? How
would obesity be measured?
One time when I went for a physical, a nurse told me
I was significantly overweight. I weigh 205 pounds and
I'm just a smidgen under five feet, 10 inches tall. Her
chart said I should weight about 165 pounds. And once
upon a time I did. I was in the 10th grade.
Charts don't take into account body structure. I work
out in the gym regularly. I can still jog three miles with-
out calling my wife to come get me. (I do carry my cell
phone, however, just in case.) I'm stocky. Because of
my workout routine, I probably have more muscle mass
than many men my age. So if I was taxed on weight,
would I get a credit for muscle mass versus fat mass?
And who would calculate that credit? More bureaucra-
cy!
And yes, I'm being a bit facetious just responding to
such an idea of a fat tax. But, I'm a columnist and space
must be filled. ,
. Obviously, we cannot put a direct tax oh the obese. It
would be ruled unconstitutional under the provision of
"life, liberty and the pursuit of French fries." Just kid-
ding. And it would be insensitive to many.
But we can promote physical fitness and health educa-
tion in general. I see a lot of people at the gym pursuing
better health. I think the education part is gaining mo-
mentum. And some companies are offering health insur-
ance incentives to those who don't smoke and who join
fitness programs.
And I'm not saying that Mr. Stanek's commentary is
without socially redeeming value. In fact, it's a mono-
logue on a very serious problem. And it can lead to dis-
cussion, information exchange and quite possibly some
resolve to pursue better health.
The bottom line is, I don't support directly taxing obe-
sity. I do realize that health care and the associated costs
are a major problem. But like so many others, I don't
know all that must be done. It's kind of like trying to
nail Jello to the wall or asking, how long is a piece of
string?
I have learned something along the way though that I
stand by as absolute: dieting without exercise is a waste
of time. It's a tandem like freedoms and responsibilities.
One more conclusion: For exercise to work, it has to
involve some amount of discomfort. No pain, no gain.
Or to be more specific with my own phrasing, "if it
doesn't hurt, it doesn't work."

How to tell when you're an Old Coot


Here's a question for you. How do you know when
you are officially an "Old Coot?"
Is it when you get that first Social Security check?
Perhaps it's when you start taking pride in asking for
your "Senior Discount."
Another distinct possibility is when you automatical-
ly know the exact time the postman is due at you mail-
box and become seriously cranky if he's 10 minutes
late. *
Well, for me the fact that 1 was now officially an "Old
Coot" came yesterday, not because my rhailman was
late, but because he was on time. .
My daily, always anticipated trek, to my mailbox
started well enough. The shade cast by the oak trees
minimized the impact of the boiling Live Oak sun and
the birds melodically serenaded as nearby squirrels pre-
formed their death-defying leaps from limb to limb..
But the fun really began when I opened my big old
black, rural mailbox nestled along my dirt lane and dis-
covered a small, tasteful envelope that showed, without
a doubt, I had entered a new phase in my life.
No it wasn't the 5,000th offer to help me choose my
supplemental Medicare Plan. It wasn't even my latest
edition of AARP Magazine, with, my lord, OPIE on the
cover!


No, it was a simple, tasteful invitation from The Nep-
tune Society ... those folks who bury you on the cheap.
(Clearly, they know my mindset.)
And just in case I might be tempted to toss their little"
note without opening it, they offered an incentive no re-
tiree can ever refuse: THE CHANCE OF WINNING
SOMETHING FREE.
Not a car. Not a trip.
Well it is a trip in one sense, I guess. You see, they
were giving me the opportunity to win a free cremation.
How about that for a prize. My heart, be still.
No, cancel that!
And all 1 had to do - other than admitting my own
mortality, which in itself is no small feat - is to allow
them to send me some "information." They even
sweetened the pot by tempting me, an old GI, with the
possibility of a free gravesite, with its own granite,
marble or bronze headstone.
So, did I become an Old Coot when I opened the
Neptune Society's gracious invitation?
No, I think I officially became an "Old Coot" when I
realized their offer was the most interesting piece of
correspondence I'd received in months.

First Federal helps businesses recover with SBA-ARC loans


The United States Small
Business Administration is
implementing a special,
temporary loan program to help
struggling small businesses. SBA
is offering America's Recovery
Capital Loan Program (ARC) to
help small businesses recover.
First Federal Bank of Florida is
an approved SBA lender and cad
help businesses that qualify for
these deferred-payment loans to
make payments on existing debt.
"ARC loans are designed to
give viable small businesses


facing immediate financial
hardship some temporary
financial relief so they can keep
their doors open and get their
cash flow back on track," said
Robert Turbeville, First Federal
director of sales and senior
lender.,
ARC loans are interest-free to
the borrower, have deferred
payments for 12 months, and
have no SBA fees associated
with them.
ARC loans can provide up to
$35,000 in short-term relief for


small businesses facing financial
hardship, ARC loans will be used
to make up to six months of
principal and interest payments
on qualifying loans for existing
for-profit small businesses.
Disbursement period (up to six
months) is followed by 12
months with no repayment of the
ARC loan principal, followed by
a repayment period of up to five
years. ARC Loans can be
applied for through First Federal
Bank for a limited time and
availability.


Small businesses that would
benefit from these loans are
businesses that were previously
profitable, but are having
difficulty making payments on
existing debt, or having difficulty
covering normal operating
expenses, such as payroll, or
purchasing materials and
supplies. First Federal President
Keith Leibfried explained, "ARC
loans may be used to pay on
mortgages, secured and
unsecured loans, lines of credit
and credit cards if the debt was


used for eligible business
purposes under the program. We
are proud to be able to offer
affordable ARC loans to our
customers and local community
businesses that need immediate
financial help." ARC loans offer
short-term relief to help small
businesses. The ARC
application process is handled
through the local lender and
approved by the SBA. First
Federal Bank of Florida is an
Equal Housing Lender and
Member FDIC.

loved one. Ask about July's Special Package rates.

release of the third entry:
Red Faction: Guerrilla.
Red Faction has been
developed by Volition, the
folks behind Saints Row,
and the newest entry is
available on the
Playstation 3 and Xbox
360. It's rated M, because
of violence and language.
The story starts off
innocently enough, player
character Alec Mason
traveled to Mars to get
away from life on Earth
and find new beginnings.
His new life is quickly
derailed by, a tragic turn
of events, forcing him to
join up with the Red
Faction: and help them
take back Mars from the
grips of the Earth Defense
Force. Unfortunately, this
is where the narrative
stops trying to get your
attention and it slides
back as the game's true
objective takes the
spotlight: destruction.
Guerrilla delivers


destruction in spades; just
when you think you're out
of ways to blow things up,
the game gives you a new
weapon to play with! You
start with simple gadgets:
remote charges and a
sledgehammer. It won't
take you long to evolve
into ramming cars through
buildings, or knocking out
supports in order to cause
the building to collapse on
top of your foes. Every
building you see in this
game can be destroyed.
That's not me
exaggerating, either, I
mean every single
building in the game. The
level of destruction this
game can provide is
beyond anything we've
ever seen before. In my
opinion, Volition deserves
� an award for creating the
technology that makes
this all possible:
While the story fails in
putting itself in the
forefront, it does manage

to convey the sense of
actually overthrowing an
empire. You'll find
yourself going out of your
way just to destroy EDF-
owned buildings in order
to lower their influence in
the sectors that make up
Mars. Most of the side
missions center around
the theme of destroying
things, which isn't a bad
thing, but it can get a bit
stale after a while. Still,
you'll find yourself
stopping to watch
buildings crumble after
you're done with them.
Luckily, the rest of the
gameplay doesn't falter
because of the focus on
destruction. The gunplay
is solid and precise, while
vehicles are easy to drive.
You'll feel invincible if
you manage to find a
Walker, which are large,
two-legged mechs that are
capable of simply walking
through buildings. Not so
luckily, the environments
you'll be traveling
through are sparse and
open. It's debatable
whether this is a bad
thing, though, since I'd
imagine Mars wouldn't be
a very lush planet even
with terraforming.


Guerrilla doesn't stop
once you finish the
single-player campaign;
there's more destruction
to be had in the Wrecking
Crew and multiplayer
modes. Wrecking Crew is
a pass-the-controller
game mode where'players
compete to see who can
do the most damage in a
variety of modes. If you
somehow get bored with
Wrecking Crew and the
campaign, there's
multiplayer with stat-
tracking! Deathmatch has
never been more exciting;
hiding in a building
becomes a gamble when
you know it can be
brought down upon your
head. Plus players can
level up through 125
ranks, much like Call of '
Duty 4.
So if you love causing
destruction, or maybe just
like watching buildings
go tumbling down, pick
up Red Faction: Guerrilla.
and give it a shot! I'll
give it an A, and I'll give
you a friendly warping:
be careful when taking
down a building. If you're
trapped inside when it
comes down, you will
regret it!

Instead of boasting about being on

Cook simply looked to the future.
"I think I could probably do better

turned out really good."
Peacock said she enjoyed the project.
"I thought it was really fun," she said.
"It was a project that I think people will

have to get a new phone."
Free phoAps are available with most
plans, although those phones are generally
limited in their high-tech capabilities,
Hamby said.
Most customers can stick with their
current Alltel contracts until they expire,
at which time the switch will be necessary
to continue service with Verizon.
"The change should be seamless for


customers," Hamby said.
Chris Fraizer, Verizon's Live Oak
officer manager, said customers can still
purchase Alltel phones until July 11. As of
Monday, a rack of the soon-to-be obsolete
phones was still displayed at the local
Verizon store.
If customers experience any roaming
problems with their phone service, they
can dial *228, which helps a phone .

What To Do About Itchy Skin
Eczema, also referred to as atopic dermatitis, is a condition in which
there is an itchy rash and dry skin. In the United States, up to 15
million people are affected by this skin condition. The skin on the
arms and behind the knees is most likely affected, although any area
of the skin may be involved. Patches of red colored, cracked skin may
appear on the hands, face, and feet. Eczema is likely due to both
irritated skin and an abnormality of the immune system. Eczema also
commonly occurs along with allergies or asthma. Stress, sweating,
low humidity, and cigarette smoke may trigger or exacerbate
symptoms.
Persons affected by eczema are advised to avoid activities that may
trigger a flare, such as excessive bathing or certain types of
detergents. Thick creams, such as Eucerin and Celuphil, as well as
ointments, such as Aquaphor and Petrolanum, are'recommeicnded for
protection against dry skin. Antihistamines, such as dipheiinhvdraiiine
(Benadryl) and hydroxyzine (Atarax), may help improve itchy skin,
although these medications may cause drowsiness. Glucocorticoids in
the form of cream or ointment, such as hydrocortisone cream, may be
used for mild eczema. For more severe symptoms, aglucocorticoid
ointment with higher potency, such as fluocinolone (Synalar) or
triamcinolone (Kenalog) may be useful. 535092

The June Bug festival will become a summer tradition, organizers hope. - Photo: Staff

The Inaugural June Bug
Festival drew between 500-
600 people to downtown
Live Oak and looks like a
success.
"While the planning com-
mittee has not met yet, I feel
that it was a success and we
should be -quite happy,"
event chairman Randy Tor-
rance said. "We have placed
a foundation upon which to
build on. I cannot see any
reason why this event would
not be done again next year.
Even though it was small in
relation to other events such
as Christmas on the Square,
the June Bug was designed
to provide the community
an opportunity to come to-
gether and support its down-
town. On several occasions
during the event, I saw folks
sitting and visiting with
each other at Millennium
Park."
The June Bug Festival of-
fered a combination of arts
and crafts displays, chil-


dren's games, a car
show/cruise-in, a flea and
fanner's market and busi-
ness participation. Before
the inaugural June 27 event,
Torrance said that he hoped
the event would become a
tradition for the Live Oak
community, and one that the
business community would
support and participate in.
He got exactly what he
wanted with participation of
several local businesses, in-
cluding the Suwannee De-
mocrat, Dairy Queen of
Live Oak, Sherman Frier
Surveyors, North Florida
Printing Co. inc., Furst Au-
tomotive & Cycle, Poole
Realty, inc., Suwannee Val-
ley Party Rentals, Doug's
Golf Cart Sales and Service,
WLVO Radio 106.1, Live
'Oak Church of the Nazarene
and Cowboy's BBQ, to
name a few.
Torrance wishes to thank
everyone that participated in
this event. Volunteers from


the Youth Advocacy Part-
nership, Suwannee Drug
Free, Tobacco Free Suwan-
nee and the Suwannee
County Historical Museum'
helped not only to make this
event possible, but assisted
with both the set-up and tear
down as well. Torrance also
noted that the Live Oak Po-
lice Department was on
hand for the entire event,
and that he is especially
grateful to Sergeant Jason
Rountree for his help during
the process of closing down
the event.
The June Bug Festival is
the brainchild of Randy Tor-
rance and the Board of Di-
rectors for the Live Oak
Partnership. It was the result
of a recent discussion of the
need for more events in
downtown Live Oak. The
Live Oak Partnership is the
downtown revitalization
committee set in place by
the Suwannee County
Chamber of Commerce.

'" 41I -A

"I never thought spending

$150 per month could help

me get my life back!"
Let me share with you a sad story with a happy ending. I had just lost my job and was
quickly sinking into a deep depression. I went home that night and was so embarrassed to
tell my family what had happened at work that dreadful day. After spending time with them,
I went to the bathroom and broke down. I admit it, I cried. What was I going to tell my
wife? How was I going to break the news that the man of the house had lost his job? I took . .
a good, long look at myself in the mirror.
Thoughts of the conversation with my boss went racing through my head. "Your sales are .'
down. We can't keep you on when you consistently fail to meet production goals," he had '
said. With a sad and uncomfortable look, he had proceeded to tell me, "You have customers
that are interested, but several have called back to say they felt uncomfortable buying their
appliances from you. They said you seemed cold, unfriendly and that you refused to look
them in the eye."
I had tried to defend myself and had given every lame excuse I could think of. I had
reminded him that I knew the product better than anybody else on staff. "What's going on
in your life?" he had asked me. "What has caused you to become so unenthusiastic about
your job?" I stood there with a blank look. I knew the answer, but was too embarrassed to
tell him the truth. Instead, I packed my desk in shame as colleagues came by to say
farewell.


I refocused on my reflection. Broken and hurting, I began to pray. All of a sudden, I
remembered seeing an ad in the paper, "Smile Designs By Dr. Charlotte Gerry." I also
remembered reading that they offered easy financing. The very next day, I made an
-- appointment with Dr. Gerry.
I was nervous on so many different levels: scared to be at the dentist, lack of finances and my
awkward smile, but Dr. Gerry and her wonderful staff put me at ease. No one embarrassed me


" , . about my missing and broken teeth. In fact, they were very positive and encouraging to me.
SThe office staff and assistants were very professional; I was greeted and take care of fast.
Dr. Gerry did a thorough and comprehensive exam; she spent more time with me than I thought she would and answered all my
questions. Next, the office manager came in to go over prices for my treatment plan. After the quote, I felt nervous, once again, believing
it impossible to fix my smile. After losing my job, how could I afford this? I started pacing the floor, wondering, "How could I do this?"
Sensing my discomfort, the office manager talked to me about dental financing. This financing was not based on my credit score, but on
my ability to pay back the debt. It was a small, one page application which took only a minute to complete. The next thing I knew, I was
approved for a new smile at only $150 per month.


(P7)


I was so excited that I drove to my old company and explained to fny boss the actual reason my sales
had gone down. My smile, lack of confidence, and embarrassment had been the real problem with my
sales. You see, my teeth are in poor condition and I had been embarrassed t6 talk with the customers in
a confident and personal manner. Customers had started backing away from my awful breath. As you
can imagine it, was very hard to be confident. Over the years, my wife has, had some medical issues that ' *
forced me to neglect the problems in my mouth. I didn't realize that it could get so bad this quickly, and' --
it didn't affect just my mouth. I have been depressed about who I am when I looked at my ugly teeth. O-W.


I was so excited about what was happening that my boss could see it. He actually suggested that I go
forward with my new smile and report back to work asap! He gave me three months to bring my sales
back up with my new smile.
Dr. Gerry at 'Smile Designs promised to make my smile as close to perfect as possible, and she
delivered! Not only do my teeth look great, but my wife says I look 10 years younger. I went back to
my sales job and became regional sales leader for the last quarter. Did I mention that regional. sales
leader came with a bonus? I still can't believe that $150 a month got my life back!

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: I'm going through hard financial times. Is
it okay to skip dental treatment for a while?
A: The economic downturn has forced
lifestyle changes on many people. If you
have to give up something, regular visits to
your health care providers should be at the
bottom of your list, In fact, the stress of
dealing with a layoff or uncertainty at work,
the prospect of home foreclosure and other
concerns can cause health problems,
including in your mouth.
Stress causes surges of energy which the
body uses for its fight-or-flee mechanism. It
takes a toll throughout your body, even on
your teeth. Dentists, for Instance, are


reporting increased instances of cracked
and work-down teeth, headaches and jaw
pain, all a result of a condition called
bruxism, or teeth clenching and grinding,
which your body will do at night as a way of
burning off excess energy. Where normal
chewing can put pressure of 20 to 40
pounds on each tooth, bruxism can put 250
pounds of pressure on a tooth.
Your dentist will have some
recommendations if teeth-grinding is an
increasing problem for you. Your dentist is a
trusted member of your health care team. B5
frank with him about your circumstances and
see what he advises.

each other while the
Bretts, Ken and George,
faced each other. Baseball
has had a lot of brother
combinations, even Hank
Aaron, Robin Yount, Joe
Torre, Ken Griffey and
Richie Allen had lesser
known brothers who
played the game. Jose
Canseco had a twin
brother, Ozzie, that the
steroids didn't help..
Some brothers have
crossed into two sports.
Dan McGwire was a great
college quarterback for
Iowa, his brother Mark hit
homeruns. Norm Bass
pitched for a horrible
Kansas City A's team and
his brother Dick ran for a
horrible L.A. Rams team.
Ron Johnson was the N.Y.
Giants' first 1,000 yard
rusher. His Brother Alex
won the A.L. batting title
in 1971. Jackie Robinson's
brother Mack won a gold
medal in the Olympics.
James Arness was

brother was Peter Graves

it was worth mentioning
Football has had its

Super Bowl MVPs. Of
course there are the Jones
brothers and who could
forget the Selmon brothers
of Tampa Bay fame.
Walter "Sweetness"
Payton had brother Eddie.
Mike Golic's brother

Merlin Olson had brothers
Phil and Orrin play on the
basketball courts. The
Espositos may be the best
hockey brother
combination ever. But who
would you vote as the best
pair of sports siblings
ever?
After very little thought
the answer was very
apparent and probably not
up for much debate. To
have two people dominate
a sport, and then have
people argue which one is
or was better gives you a
clue. Both own a multitude
of records and will both be
enshrined in their sports
hall of fame. Sorry Archie,
it's not your kids, it's not
the Waners, or even the
boxing Spinks brothers.
The answer is the only set
of sisters I could come up
with. How about Venus
and Serena (last name -
Williams - optional) my
vote for all time athletic
siblings.

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-
ing flyball classes in O'Brien and Live Oak. The classes
will teach you and your dog how to compete as a team.


Flyball is a relay race in which four dogs race against an-
other team of four dogs over four hurdles to a box that
they leap upon to release a tennis ball, they catch the ball
and bring it back to their handler so that the next dog on
their team may then run the course. There are two
leagues that teams can compete in to win titles and
awards.
For-more information call Cathy at 386-362-4956 or
visit the website at http://toohottohandle-flyball.com/.

Did you know?

According to the Centers-for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at
least 45.000 American adults die of complications of influenza,
pneumococcal infections, and hepatitis B each year. Those figures can be
startling considering that each of the aforementioned diseases can be
prevented %\ith vaccines. While certain vaccines given during childhood,
such as the one given for polio; protect people for the duration of their lives,
vaccinations for certain diseases must be given periodically for people to
maintain immunity. Other vaccines, such as the chickenpox vaccination,
were not available when many adults were children. The CDC recommends
all adults get annual vaccinations for varicella (chickenpox), hepatitis B,
measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), and tetanus. The CDC also notes that as
people age they grow more susceptible to serious diseases caused by
common infections, emphasizing the need for the elderly to receive annual
vaccinations for influenza for those over the age of 50and pneumonia for
those 65 and older. To receive a complete adult immunization schedule. visit
the CDC Web site at www.cdc.gov.

of the graduating youth for the third
year, members of the Homeless Service
Network of Suwannee Valley were

Nine Tips for

Protecting

Your Child In

and Around

the Water
Infant Swimming Re-
source recognizes National
Water Safety Month with
these 'Water Safety Tips'
Winter Park - Infant
Swimming Resource
(ISR), the safest provider
of self-rescue swimming
lessons for babies and tod-
dlers from six months to
six years old, announces
the following tips to help
families protect their
young children in and
around the water this Sum-
mer.
Tips to protect children
from water dangers:
(Remember -water areas
include pools, hot tubs,
rivers, retention ponds,
ditches and flooded areas)
1. Effective Supervision
- the most important de-
fense. Never turn your
back on your child around
water. It takes just minutes
for him/her to be in serious
trouble.
2. Pool Safety. Covered
pools and hot tubs can be a
serious oversight for well-
meaning parents. Make
sure they are appropriately
secured, year-round, with:
- Pool alarms and
doorway alarms that ac-
cess outdoor water areas.
- Permanent pool fenc-
ing with a self-latching
gate.
- Door and window
locks for pool access areas
(locks must be out of the
child's reach).
- Double check locks
and make sure pool securi-
ty devices work. Safety
gates are deterrents but not
a sole defense.
3. Self-rescueTM Skills.
If the above defense mea-
sures fail, your baby needs
to know skills ,for self-res-
cue should she find herself
in the water alone. ISR
emphasizes water self-res-
cue skills as a comprehen-
sive water-safety plan for
young children. ISR has
successfully trained more
than 175,000 babies and
toddlers with a 100 percent
safety and survival rate,
zero injuries and 788 doc-
umented cases of a child
using ISR techniques to
save their own life.
4. Educate Others. Nan-
nies, grandparents, neigh-
bors and caregivers should
know year-round water-
safety tips and have appro-
priately installed security...
devices where relevant.
5. Store All Toys. Toys
are tempting; never leave
them outside around water
areas.

Nine Tips for Protecting Your

Child In and Around the Water


Continued From Page 8
6. Keep a phone by the
pool. To be used for emer-
gencies only.
7. Aim pool jets toward
the pool's shallow end.
This creates a current that
can guide a baby toward
the steps to exit the pool.
8. Keep water levels
full. This helps your child
reach the elevated ledge
and either get out of the
pool or hold on and call
for help.
9. No Diving Boards.
Diving boards pose count-
less injury risks to young
children.

A new band called Fifth 'n Baya
rocked the house at Java Jax
recently. Though they have only
been playing together a couple of
years their talent is obvious. The
four young men started out as a
praise and worship team at the
Live Oak Church of God where
they still play. Dylan Watson-lead
singer and bassist sang ihis heart
out and the audience loved it.
Accompanied by Michael Hodges
on rhythm and lead guitar and
back up vocals, and Nick
Register played the drums and
played some rhythm guitar. They
play at youth rallies, Christian
events and just about anywhere
they are welcome. They will be
playing at the Dowling Park
Youth Rally on July 17 at the
Lighthouse Community Center.
Visit their myspace at:
myspace.com/fighobaya for
more informati-na ,,jto see
their schedule. Fifth 'n Baya
would like to invite people to
* come to their weekly youth
services at the Live Oak Church
of God on Wednesday evenings
at 7 p.m. They are a talented
group and we hope to see more
of them.
