 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.

No tax relief for

homeowners, despite

declining values

County millage rate rises
to make up for losses
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
Most homeowners will not get relief from
property taxes this year, despite the drop in the
assessed values of many homes.
In response to the downturn in the housing
market, Suwannee County Property Appraiser
Lamar Jenkins lowered the assessed values on most
homes in the county.
However, the board of county commissioners on
Tuesday tentatively raised the millage rate (to
8.5095 from last year's rate of 7.6160) to help
make up for lost revenue. So even though your
home is probably worth less than it was last year,
you'll likely pay just as much - or more - in
property taxes.
"This is going to kill people," Commissioner Ivie
Fowler said Wednesday. "It (the village rate) needs
to come down. I would like to see it set at eight."
Jenkins said the county's taxable value will be
about $172 million less than last year, a deficit of
nearly nine percent.
"It's not going to be a big tax relief for the
taxpayers," Jenkins said Tuesday.
Jenkins said those that will see tax relief are
those that own open lands and commercial
properties. He said homesteaded properties will be
hit the hardest.
"There's going to be 10,000 that get no relief,"
said Jenkins. There are 10,406 homesteaded
properties on the tax roll.

6-year-old out of hospital;
SUV driver still critical
By JeffWaters
James Mercer, the six-year-old seriously
injured in an Independence Day crash on 104th
Street, is ho longer listed as a patient at Shands

Mercer was listed in good condition Tuesday.
Mercer's mother,'27-year-old April Jo
Mercer, died When the 1999 Ford pickup she
was riding in was struck by an SUV when the
pickup failed to stop at the intersection of 169th
Road and 104th Street at about 6 p.m.,
according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Suwannee County Public Safety Director
Charlie Conner said James Mercer, who was not
wearing a seawbelt, was ejected from the vehicle.
The driver of the SUV, 59-year-old J. Patrick
Tharpe, was listed in critical condition
Wednesday, according to the hospital
spokeswoman, as he has been since the

EXTENSION UPDATE



Putting the final touches




on the vegetable garden


By Carolyn Saft
UF/IFAS Extension
Suwannee County
Horticulture Agent/
Suwannee River Partnership
Education Coordinator


Many of our vegetable crops ft
are winding down as the heat of
summer intensifies. We are
.picking the last of our carrots,
snap beans, cabbage and sweet
corn. The cucumbers are starting to curl
up into funky shapes and the tomatoes
are getting smaller. However, they were
really tasty this spring. I think I enjoyed
mine so much because of the money I
saved by growing them myself and the
satisfaction of not having used
pesticides. It may seem odd, but you
might consider getting that garden area
ready for the fall planting now. Oh, but
it is soooo hot and yet that is when the
time is right to use the sun's energy to
kill soil pests, especially nematodes that
are in the garden plot. Nematodes live in
hot sandy soils and feed on plant roots
:causing the roots to become non-
functional'for water and nutrient uptake.
You can solarize your soil during the
hot months of July and August to reduce
those pesky nematode populations that
live in our sandy soils. The first
step to soil solarization is to
remove rocks and large twigs
from the garden area. Next turn
the soil or do a shallow tilling
throughout the area: Then
moisten the area to help
conduct the 'sun's energy
through the soil. Many pest
organisms can go dormant in
dry, hot soils, but cannot
survive in moist, hot soils. The
next step is to cover the entire
area with clear polyethylene Some n
plastic. It is important to use root sys
clear so the sun's light rays
will penetrate through the
plastic to the soil. Clear .
plastic produces the desirable
higher soil temperatures faster


than black plastic does.
Black plastic holds the light
so soil is heated only at the
very surface of the soil and
not radiated deeper into the
soil. Raise the center of the
garden plot slightly so you
have created a peak to help
drain water off the plastic.
Puddling or pooling of
water on the plastic
absorbs sorbs some of the heat
from the soil and causes
the soil temperature to
become cooler -
something you don't want
to happen. Finally, seal
the edges of the plastic by
either tucking under the
soil or by putting bricks,
rocks or boards. This step
helps keep the moisture
and heat locked up tinder
the plastic. Now all you
have to do is leave the
plastic on for 6-8 weeks
(for best results) during
the heat of summer. This.
practice will "cook"
weeds, bugs and some
fungi. A little time spent
doing this now will help
reduce pest populations in
future gardens. This is
not 100 percent effective
against all garden pests,
but it is a tool to use since
there are no chemicals
that homeowners can use
on soil nematodes. Other
ways to reduce nematode
infestations are to add
large amounts of compost
(organic matter) to the
garden soil and rotate
plants that are susceptible
to them like peppers and
tomatoes. When it is time
to plant the fall garden,
you simply remove the
plastic a couple of days
before you begin your
planting process.
An hour or so spent on
preparing your garden
may prevent many
problems in future
gardens. After you have
finished with your last
vegetable garden chore,
you can sit back and


S


AD S


watch the grass grow and grow
and grow. You might even
start contemplating how nice
some of that grass area would
look like if there were slow
growing perennials planted
there that you don't have to
mow. Ahh, summertime!

1-75 Billboard Pilot Project '
From the Beginning of the Florlda Turnpike
Sat Wildwood to the Georgia State Line
The Florida Department of Transportation invites you to attend a
Public Meeting to discuss a proposed Pilot Project on Interstate 75
from the beginning of the Florida Turnpike at Wildwood to the
Georgia State Line. This meeting will be held on Wednesday, July
22, 2009, at the Florida Department of Transportation's District
Office, 1109 S. Marion Avenue, Lake City, Florida 32025.
Come anytime between 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m., to review and,
discuss the exhibits and have your questions answered by one of our
staff. At 6:00 p.m. we will open the floor for public comments. It is the
policy of the Florida Department of Transportation, District 2 to
prohibit materials and/or exhibits in our public workshops, meetings
and hearings that are not the property of the Department. Therefore,
no outside party will be allowed to display or hand out materials in any
of these events.
The Department of Transportation has received authorization from
the Federal Highway Administration to conduct a public meeting to
discuss the concept of a Pilot Project on Interstate 75 from the
beginning of the Florida Turnpike at Wildwood to the Georgia State
Line. The pilot project is intended to result in a general reduction in
the number of non-conforming outdoor advertising billboards in the
sensitive scenic areas on the corridor. The pilot project will also test a
potential change in Federal regulations which currently prohibit
modifications to non-conforming signs in lesser impacted areas
when signs are removed from the more sensitive areas. It Is
anticipated that this pilot project will result in a corridor with a much

Police chief warns

of solicitation scam
By Jeff Waters

Live Oak Police Chief Buddy Williams wants
residents to be aware of a phone scam in which
the caller, who claims to be associated with
LOPD, asks for donations.
"The LOPD has never resorted to phone
solicitation," said Williams. "We never will
solicit over the phone for any purposes."
Williams said he is being "bombarded" with
calls from concerned residents. One resident
even said the caller talked about the
department's annual Policeman's Ball to try and
prove he was with the police department. '
Williams said the number that shows on caller
identification is 904-861-1583 and asks residents
to ignore the call if received.


Their purpose: to raise
awareness of the

plight of Africa's most vulnerable, but also to
show the beauty, dignity and potential of each
African child.
Performances on American Idol, Good
Morning America and Ellen have taken their
stories of hope to-billions.. Other notable
performances include Nashville4Africa, Live 8
in London, Nelson Mandela's 46664 concert,
and special concerts for President George W.
Bush, Kofi Annan and members of the UN.
As ambassadors, the children in the Choir
represent millions of children living on a
continent in turmoil. "The children in the
Choir represent millions of children in Africa,"
said Choir Founder Ray Barnett. "They are
bright, articulate and motivated. We believe
they can make a difference."
All of the Choir children have come from,
extreme poverty; many have lost at least one
parent. Yet in spite of their circumstances the
children radiate hope. They know that because

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT


Dog bite prevention


By Elliot Bronson
Environmental Specialist I
Suwannee/Lafayette County Health
Departments

Every year, more than 500 Florida
residents sustain dog bite injuries
severe enough to require
hospitalization, and two Floiidians ._
die due to injuries from dog bites.
Injury rates in Florida are highest ''-
among children between the ages of
one and nine years old. However, dog Bronson
bites can also result in serious
injuries for teenagers and adults. In
2006, three Florida residents 25 years or older died as a
result of dog attacks. Studies show that unneutered
(intact) male dogs are associated with 70-76 percent of
reported dog bites, emphasizing the importance of
neutering pets. The number of dog bite injuries increase
during the months of April through September, with the
peak occurring in July. We encourage everyonelo
consider the following safety tips when interacting with
dogs and thank all the responsible pet owners for taking
the appropriate steps to control and vaccinate their pets.

Safety tips for children and adults:
* Never approach an unfamiliar dog.
* Never run from a dog and never scream around a dog.
* Do look a dog right in the eyes.
* If you believe a dog is about to attack you, try and
place something in between yourself and the dog, such as
backpack or a bicycle.
* If a dog knocks you over, roll into a ball, cover your
face and stay still.
* Do not disturb a dog that is sleeping, eating or caring
for puppies.

* Children should never approach or play with dogs
unless supervised by an adult.
* Children should tell an adult if they see a stray dog or
a dog acting strangely.
* Adults should never leave an infant or young child
alone with any dog, not even the family pet.

When you or your child approach a dog remember, to:
* Ask the owner for permission to pet the animal.
* Wait and watch the dog's body language.
* Let the pet sniff you.
* Pet the dog in the direction of its fur.

Safety tips for dog owners:
* Before getting a dog, consult with a veterinarian or
animal shelter personnel about which dog is right for your
family and your lifestyle.
* Keep your dog healthy with regular check-ups,
vaccinations and especially rabies vaccination!
* Spay or neuter your dog.
* Socialize with your dog so that it feels at ease around
people and other animals.
* Do not put your dog in situations where it may feel
threatened or teased.
* Follow leash laws. Do not let your dog roam freely.
* Train your dog to obey commands consistently such
as "stay," "sit" and "come."
* See a veterinarian promptly if your dog is sick or
injured. Illness and pain can make a dog more likely to
bite.
* Do not play aggressive games with your dog.

the animal becomes ill or dies during quarantine, testing
would be required to rule out rabies. The animal's intact
head can be sent to the state laboratory for rabies testing.
If it is necessary to put down the animal at the time of the
attack efforts should be made to preserve the head for
testing. Do notshoot the animal in the head.

Saturday. This year's edition of
the River Reunion was one of the
best. It was hot, sure, but when
; isn't it hot on a North Florida
Fourth?
What we like best about the
Reunion is just what the name
implies - seeing folks we haven't
met up with in a while, either be-
cause they've moved away or ...
well, you know how easy it is to
lose touch. They do come back
for Branford's annual Indepen-
dence Day bash, though.
To old friends we got to chat
with again, Good seeing you.
Let's do it again next year. To the
new friends we made, Let's stay
in touch. And to the folks who
once again worked countless
hours to pull off Branford's
biggest, and best, annual
blowout, we say "Thanks."

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.
Thanks for Rant & Rave. It has given me a new appreciation
of the folks who live in Suwannee County. I moved here be-
cause of a love for the country's slow pace but I found some of
the SC residents a bit too religious. They seemed too willing to
allow some' preacher-man (a mortal human being) a control
over their lives. I've lived in large metropolitan areas and nev-
er was asked "What religion are you and what church do you
attend?".. But here that was the second question after
"Hot/Cold weather we're having". Since R&R I had a change of
heart. There are 'Thinkers' out there amongst the 'Sycophants'
and that means enlightenment exists. I believe in separation of
Church and State, so concerning the liquor laws here, they're
ANTIQUATED! My mother had a saying she would use quite
often when it came to obstinance. "Cutting off your nose to
spite your face!"
I'm encouraged to see so many intelligent people in favor of
making Suwannee a wet county. When will it be up for our vote
and is someone making sure that it makes it's way on the bal-
lot?
On Independence Day, July 4th 2009. I drove thru (3) local
housing subdivisions, looking for homes displaying the Amer-
ican flag. This is what I found. Foxboro Subdivision 20 homes
displaying flags out of 95 = 21% Savannah Plantation Subdivi-
sion 0 homes displaying flags out of 11 = 0% Carriage Place
Subdivision (4) homes displaying flags out of 17 = 23-1/2%
Conclusion Patriotism doesn't seem to be alive and well in the
Live Oak area.

1 went to visit my friend at the jail and I called first and they
said yes come along that will be fine. But when I got to the jail
the person told me I needed my driver's license so I had to go
back and get that. Then, everybody knew who I was. Then they
told me I couldn't visit him period because I wasn't on the list.
Please tell the people before they go to the jail what they need
to bring and if they're on the list. It would make it very nice for
the visitor.
I would just like to call to say that I find it very disappoint-
ing that a prominent church in Live Oak would have the pastor
would stand up in front and actually run down our President
Obama. It was very disappointing. We went to visit a church in
Live Oak and that ,was what occurred. That President Obama
was put down for what he's going. And for my child to sit there
and hear that was very disappointing to see a preacher not show
any respect to our president. Whether you voted for President
Obama or not he is still the president of the United States and
I think more respect should have been shown to him. And I find
that disappointing. And I that think in church we should cer-
tainly show respect to the heads of our country.
I would like to ask the people of Live Oak one question.
Have we elected a city council or have we elected a bunch of
lobbyists? I'm going to find me a spot for a livery stable cause
the next Live Oak ordinance could be for a horse and buggy.
I think they raised the prices on cigarettes is wrong. They
should have raised the prices of alcohol. After all people drink
and drive and that kills people. Smoking and driving doesn't. I
think the prices should have been raised on alcohol and not cig-
arettes.
Callers to 386-208-8314 may express their thoughts, good or
bad, 24/7 about community issues and politics, but not about
private individuals or businesses. If you prefer, you may'"mail
your comments to nfeditorial@gaflnews.com. You don't have
to give your name, and please, keep submissions to less than 45
seconds (that's about 150 words). We want everybody to have a
chance to. be heard. Submissions that are overly long will be
discarded. If 45 seconds isn't enough time, write a Letter to the
Editor (Guidelines for letters appear on Page 6A.)

OPINION


By gosh it was

I don't know why they have a "bad writing contest"
every year in San Jose, Calif. What I mean is, you can
go into any video store in the country and find numerous
scripts, interspersed with exploding jugulars and flaming
vehicles, that would qualify for the final round of "bad
writing."
I get really frustrated when I seek out a good movie
and most of what I find are flicks about chainsaw mas-
sacres and snakes that swallow small boats. You see, it's
much more difficult to write about plausible events. The


Sdark and stormy


Dwain Wa


reason: Someone can check out the plausibility.
Now back to the bad writing competition. It's a parody of
course. It's all based on the 1830 novel "Paul Clifford" with the
infamous opening line, "It was a dark and stormy night," so of-
ten noted as the worst ever opening line in a published novel. It
was written by Lord Edward Earle Lytton.
Now Miss Grace Puckett, my high school English teacher,
would have set her steely eyes upon me should I have handed
her such prose. She would have expected something like:
"Shards of lightning laid open the midnight, revealing in its
powerful illumination a row of live oaks along the bayou's
edge." This is assuming, of course, I was writing a story about a
manhunt in the backwaters of Louisiana.
I've never read "Paul Clifford," so I really do not know the
context of that infamous opening line. Everything is relevant.
The novelist's great-great grandson might write a sequel as a re-
buttal and begin it with, "By gosh it was a dark and stormy night.
You would have to have been there."
I guess I'm curious now. I'll probably read some of this book.


So what follows the fact that it was pitch black and rain-
ing like a giant spitting on a flat rock?
The "bad writing contest" asks the competitors to give
an opening line to a make-believe novel. In other words,
it's not a novel at all, therefore the contest itself is a bit
,, out of context.
Anyway, here's the winning entry:
"Folks say that if you listen real close at the height of
the full moon, when the wind is blowin' off Nantucket
Widen Sound from the nor' east and the dogs are howlin' for no
earthly reason, you can hear the awful screams of the
crew of the "Ellie May," a sturdy whaler Captained by John Mc-
Tavish; for it was on just such a night when the rum was flowin'
and, Davey Jones be damned, big John brought his men on deck
for the first of several screaming contests."
When I read that, it actually sounded a little like Mark Twain.
So there might be a symposium on: "Could Mark Twain sell in
today's market?"
But to qualify my remarks, I don't claim to be an Ernest Hem-
ingway. I've never written a book about an old man catching a
big fish out on the sea. (The Old Man and the Sea)
I could, however, knock out a short story about some country
boys huddled waist deep in tannic water under the Turkey Creek
Bridge late one afternoon. They clutched the staffs of their seine
like a group of teenagers slow dancing, while the game warden
relieved himself from six feet over their heads. (The Young Boys
and The Creek) And that's not even fiction.

Attempted murder: 3 charged


Continued From Page 1A

Apartments in Live Oak. On
arrival, officers found Davis,
the tenant, bleeding from a head
injury, said Shaw. As EM$S
personnel tended to Davis, he
reportedly identified his


attackers, whom he said beat
him with a baseball bat.
The four had been at Davis's
apartment drinking beer most of
the day, said Shaw. A fight
broke out following a verbal
confrontation and all three
suspects allegedly began


beating Davis. According to one
of the suspects, the fight was
sparked by Davis's attempt to
kiss one of the men.
"That was what one of the
male defendants alleged," said
Shaw.
Davis was taken to Shands


Live Oak with life-threatening
injuries and later transferred to
Shands UF.
All three suspects were
booked into the Suwannee
County Jail on one count each
of attempted felony murder and
are being held on $250,000


bond each.
Shaw said the charges could
be enhanced.
"Based on what we've found
so far, there's a strong
possibility it could be
prosecuted as a hate crime,"
said Shaw.


A tale of 2 sisters


Continued From Page 1A

90-year-old Catherine
Aaron, who both grew up
in Live Oak. The sisters
have seen the face of
change in Suwannee
County and have
undergone a few changes
themselves since first
moving here in 1926.
"Lord, help me to
remember this history of
how I got to Live Oak,"
said Aaron as she stood in
the center of her living
room trying her best to
recall memories of a distant
past.
All the while, Hines sat
on a purple couch,
thumbing through a box of
personal photos as she
quipped, "Wasn't I
somebody."
"We came in a four-
wheel truck," Aaron said.
Once their eldest brother
Sam found work at the Live
Oak Perry and Gulf
Railroad, he sent word to
their brother Charlie to
whisk the family away
from a life of sharecropping
in Quitman, Ga., Aaron
said.
Live Oak "was a valued
place to live in," Aaron
said. "They had places for
grown folks and young


people to go."
One such place was "The
Hill," a hangout for blacks
located in the heart of town,
according to the sisters.
"It had a caf6 on one end,
then the drugstore, and a ;
pool hall, and two .
undertaker offices... all
black-owned," Aaron said.
In the rear of the
drugstore was a dance hall,
and inside was a piccolo or
a Harlem jukebox, she said.
"You could play three
records for a quarter."
The sisters grew up in a
time before television, but
remembered having a
phonograph.
"B.B. King, baby, that
was my favorite record,"
Hines said.
On one occasion she
recalled getting all dressed-
up with her sister to go see
King perform in Lake City.
"Honey, I-was dressed -
I looked like a movie star,
baby," Hines said.
However, they couldn't
get a ride and didn't make
the show.
"I had a good time in my
young days," Hines said. "I
ain't worried 'bout the
world now."
Life wasn't all fun for the
sisters, however. T'ey grew
up working a variety jobs.

. "I've done a lot of work
around here," Hines said.
As children the sisters
worked fields digging for .
peanuts, strung tobacco, and
even remembered watching
their parents pick cotton.
Later, Aaron baby-sat and
worked at the Pressing Club
laundry, while Hines served
as a cook, cleaned houses
and worked as a maid at the
Suwannee Hotel.
Hines never had any
children, although she
married more than once.
"She has a heap of God-
children," said Aaron,
smiling at her sister.
"Minnie claims children -
everybody's children,
children of all colors,"
Aaron said.
Catherine Aaron was
married to Frank C. Aaron
in 1943, until he passed
away in 1980. She has two
children, daughter Florine
Wilson, and a son who has ,
passed away named Virgil
McNeal. She has eight
grandchildren and

grandchildren.
Nowadays, Hines and
Aaron live together in a

their kin.


Farm worker stabbed

following altercation


Assailant still at large

By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

Sheriff's deputies are searching for an
Hispanic male, considered a suspect in a
stabbing at Suwannee Farms
Wednesday night.
According to Chief Deputy Ron
Colvin, 30-year-old Apnail Odeyvi
Gomez, of Suwannee Farms Migrant
Camp Apt. 9, is being sought in the
case. The alleged victim has been


identified as 30-year-old Dilmar Ortiz
Morales, who also worked and lived on
the farm.
While serious, the injuries "don't
appear to be life-threatening," said
Sheriff Tony Cameron.
Sheriff's reports state an altercation at
the farm between the two led to Morales
being stabbed twice with a knife, once
in the lower left abdomen and once in
the right forearm. Colvin said Gomez
fled the area on foot and was still at
large as of Thursday morning.
Further details were unavailable at
press time.

"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. Brqken 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
-- S about my missing and broken teeth. In fact, they were very positive and encouraging to me.
- i The 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.


I was so excited that I drove to my old company and explained to my 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 to 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.
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!

I would
consider my-
self a decent
bass fisher-
man but for
the life of me,
I don't think I will ever fig-
ure the Suwannee River out
completely. Sure, I've read
hundreds of articles about
the patterns, habits and ten-
dencies of bass in river sys-
tems but as the old adage
goes "don't believe every-
thing you read". One week
the bass fishing is red hot
and the next ice cold. I
could understand if there
was a sudden change in the
Weather, water levels, water
clarity or other variable that
would make a logical impact
on the productivity, but
when the fishing declines
for no obvious reason, it
leaves me scratching my
head. I guess when you're
dealing with a creature with
a brain the size of a pea
anything is possible.
Alright, now that I've

leadership and teach some
classes. The cadets have
exams as all academic
classes do and must
maintain a 2.0 GPA or
higher to be eligible for
JROTC activities.
There are rules cadets
have to abide by. They
must meet Navy groomihg
standards. Males must
have haircuts and no
earrings while in class or
in uniform. Females while
at competition and in
uniform must have hair
pulled back and are


permitted small metal post
earrings. Cadets wear the
uniform once a week by
Navy regulation.
This is a tremendous
opportunity for students to
earn rank and ribbons. You
can become a drill team
leader or hold other
leadership positions.
Cadets go on field trips and
competitions throughout
the year.
The Suwannee JROTC
has earned the Unit
Achievement Award, the
second highest award given
by the Navy to a school
five years in a row. They
have been to the Florida
State Championships the
last two years. They have
Won the Spirit Award four
times for professionalism
and spirit. The academic
team also finished in the
top six percent in the
nation.
JROTC trips have
included: Kings Bay
Submarine Base, Blue
Angels Air Show, The
Pensacola Air Museum, an
Aircraft Carrier in
Charleston S.C., as well as
competitions in Tampa,
Orlando and the FAMU
campus.
Most importantly the
average Suwannee cadet
averages over 2,500 hours
of community service. If
you're interested in joining,
contact your NJROTC
office or guidance
counselor. Sorry, you have
to be in grades 9-12, but
you can still get the great
sausage dogs at the football
games on Friday nights.

chance to win a little
green then drive on down
to Old Town every Tues-
day afternoon for their
local fishing derby. The
tournament launches out
of the Fanning Springs
boat ramp at 5:30 and
weigh-in is at 9 p.m. It is
a five bass limit so you
could fish by yourself or


bring a partner. The entry
fee is $35 a boat which
includes big bass. There
is usually a pretty good
turn out with enough en-
tries to pay back four
places.
I noticed that the Ivey
Park boat ramp in Bran-
ford is getting upgraded,
which is a welcome sur-
prise. There is also seri-
ous construction taking
place further down river
around Rock Bluff. A new
seawall, floating dock and
boat ramp are being built.
From the looks of it, it
should be real nice when


completed. Hopefully, im-
provements like these
will continue to take
place around here.
Speaking of improve-
ments, many of the na-
tion's fishing tackle man-
ufactures will be on hand
in Orlando in a few
weeks at the annual
ICAST show to reveal
their latest and greatest.
I've only been to one
ICAST show when it'was
held in conjunction with
the Bassmasters Classic
Outdoor Expo up in
Chicago several years ago
and it was pretty awe-


some. Hopefully, I can
make it down there to
check it all out. I'll be
sure to report back with
highlights if I do.
I've been getting some
good fishing reports from
folks who have been out
targeting redbellies and
catfish on the Suwannee.
The catfish are biting so
good that a friend of mine
actually caught a three
pound channel cat ,on a
Zoom trick worm while
he was bass fishing re-
cently. If you don't get
out early or just wait
around and go late, the
bass fishing is pretty fick-
le now which is typical
for this time of the year.
If you've got a boat that

can get into some skinny
water I would suggest
launching in the upper
reaches of the Santa Fe
River for some consistent
bass action throughout
the day.
If you read Bassmaster
magazine, you would
have noticed that in the
most recent issue the
"Bass Slam" was intro-
duced. Basically, you
have one year to catch
every species of bass.
You can start right here
on the Suwannee River
and knock out two on the
list (Suwannee bass and
southern Largemouth),
then head on over to Lake
Seminole/Flint River and
chalk up two more


(northern largemouth and
shoal bass). From there,
you. are going to have to
start logging some serious
miles as you head up to
Alabama to chase down a
smallmouth and a spotted
bass before driving all the
way out to Texas to com-
plete the slam with a
Guadalupe bass. I'd love
to complete the slam but
the whole Texas trek is
giving me second
thoughts. The editors of
Bassmaster magazine re-
cently completed the slam
in five days. Don't think
I'll be trying to top that,
sorry. You can check out
the bassmaster.com Web
site for all of the pecu-
liars on the "Bass Slam".

Peace


The third grace mentioned by Paul as a fruit
of the Spirit .is peace. Peace can be both
internal as well as external; it is possible to
be at peace within oneself while all around
loom chaos and mayhem, just as it is
possible for one to be at peace externally,
and even to have a calm outward
disposition, while war' and strife rage
within. Ideally, we should strive to have
both internal and external peace, to be at
peace with everyone, and to live
harmoniously with those around us while
being in a tranquil state of mind. Peace
with others can only come from good
relations and the active goodwill towards
all that is characteristic of true Christian
love. Peace within ourselves requires that
we truly trust in God and believe that He has
us safely in His hands, and from knowing that
we are doing His will. This last point is crucial.
This is, we must love God's word and heed His
commandments to have real peace within
ourselves. Those who knowingly do wrong
cannot know peace, for they will have a
dissonant spirit from knowing what is right
but still doing what is wrong. So, we should
study God's word and do the good works that
He has set before us as our task. Love God and
love one another, and peace will follow.

0 that you had hearkened to my
commandments! Then your peace would
have been like a river, and your
righteousness like the waves of the sea...'

R.S. V Isaiah 48:18

What makes a church great?


By Derek Maul


p


Another good Sunday at 7
church this weekend has *
me thinking about what ex- k6
actly makes great commu-
nity of faith: How can I
some churches be flat and
uninspiring - and then the
simple fact of walking into
other houses of worship produces a
tingle of anticipation or the unmis-
takable warmth of coming home?
There's an unmistakable electrici-
ty in the air at my church; it's as if
people can sense the presence of
God, even when walking in before
the service starts. What exactly ex-
plains that?
I have a theory. Here goes:
* First and foremost, it's about Je-
sus, not us. People at our church are
Jesus-followers before they are any-
thing else. It shows.
* It's not the great preaching - al-
though I don't think I've ever heard
more consistent sermons or better
teaching than we enjoy every week.
* It's not the music - even though
I believe our Praise Band is phe-
nomenal and the choir at 11:00 is
excellent.
* It's not the people - but I do


have to say there's a gen-
uineness and a welcoming
spirit it would be hard to -
replicate anywhere else.
* And it's not because
we're a packed-out house
or there's energy from a
huge crowd - Attendance.
is good but it could be bet-
ter.


So what is it? Author Graham
Standish talks about the idea of
"Blessed Community" in one of his
books. He argues that every congre-
gation has a key group of folk
(sometimes maybe only 2-3 people)
who pray for the church on a regu-
lar basis. That core is the "blessed
community."
My church has a HUGE blessed
community. It starts with the elders
- who work as a ministry team be-
fore they are administrators. Then,
any given week, between ten and
thirty small groups meet, each with
anywhere from five to twenty peo-
ple who pray with and for one an-
other, study the Bible, care for one
another, do mission, and pray for
the. whole church.
Then a high percentage of church
members take part in mission, out-
reach, service and other projects


Don't give me any of that doubletalk


By Rev. James L Snyder

This coming August the Gracious
Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours
Truly will celebrate 38 years of mar-
ital bliss. Personally, I have no idea
what "marital bliss" is exactly, only
that I have it. I know I have it, be-
cause my wife told me and she
would never lie to me. Unless of
course ... but let's not go into that.
During my almost four decades of
"marital bliss," I have learned a
thing or two. Not as much as I
would like to have learned but a few
things have come in handy. One has
to do with talking. I have discov-
ered that most people really do not
mean exactly what they say. There
has come into our language some-
thing called "doubletalk." Simply
put, doubletalk is when you mean
something exactly the opposite of
what you actually say.
Politicians are connoisseur of dou-
bletalk language. And, for the most
part, we expect it from them. No-
body really expects a politician to
say exactly what he means or mean
what he says.
If you take some people at face
value, you will find that value terri-
bly inflated. Then there are others
whose value is in a terrible reces-
sion, with no stimulus package in
view. Of course, the phrase "stimu-
lus package," is a victim of this dou-
bletalk. All it stimulates is anger and
it is hard to-package that, unless of
course you are going to send it to
China.
But, getting back to the doubletalk
associated with marital bliss.
Starting out as a young husband, I
did not understand the dynamics of
doubletalk. It started rather irnocent-
ly enough when someone told me af-'


ter hearing I was engaged to get
married, "Two can live cheaper than
one."
I have yet to find someone who
can define for me the word "cheap-
er."
This is simply doubletalk to en-
snare a young man for a lifetime of
marital bliss. The fact that a man
could be talked into believing that
two can live cheaper than a single
person is a tribute to the doubletalk
dexterity of young ladies. By the
time a young man realizes that two
cannot live cheaper than one, it is
cheaper to stay together than getting
a divorce..
After a few years of marriage, I
discovered another little bit of dou-
bletalk. My wife came home from
shopping and excitedly told me that
she had saved a lot of money shop-
ping that day. I was excited, to say
the least. I am always in for saving
money somewhere. Then I discov-
ered that is simply doubletalk for
saying, "I spent your entire pay-
check on groceries today."
My idea of saving money and my
wife's idea of saving money are the
exact opposite. I save money by not
spending money whereas she saves
money by spending it. I will never
unwind this bit of doubletalk. In or-
der to save five dollars, she has to
spend $100.
Talk about accenting the positive.
Whenever my wife says, "Guess
how much money I saved today?" I
know that our checking account took
a major hit. All this saving will send
me to the poor house.
There is another little bit of dou-
bletalk. Whenever my wife says,
"My relatives are coming to visit
for a spell," I know I have at least
one week of visitors and will have to

A cure for A]
David H. Matier, Doctor of Pastoral
Counseling dmatier@windstream.net

On a radio program the audience was
reminded that a cure has not yet been dis-
covered for HIV/AIDS. But, I mused, has
anyone thought about "abstinence?" Ab-
stinence might not help those with the
disease but wouldn't it eventually rid the
world of the disease?
The Bible admonishes, "For this is the
will of God, even your sanctification, that
ye should abstain from fornication: That
every one of you should know how to
posses his vessel in sanctification and ho-
nour;" (I Thessalonians 4:3,4). It is God's
will that you keep your body separated
unto honor (keep your body pure), not
giving into lusts of the flesh.
Abstinence is the answer but men are
more interested in their "FUN" than in a
cure. In a hedonistic culture there is a


every day of the week. Serving
meals to the homeless, tutoring chil-
dren, visiting the sick - reaching out
all the time and in scores of differ-
ent ways.
Consequently, by the time the
community gathers together for
worship on Sunday morning, the
Spirit has been active and engaged
all week long. The electric spirit
present in worship has everything to
do with what happens between Sun-
days.
I believe membership statistics for
a church are maybe the least impor-
tant number when it comes to un-
derstanding church health. The real
question is how deeply do members
love Jesus? And how does that love
translate into service?
Then - when anyone walks into
church on a Sunday morning - the
presence of God will be obvious.
God's people, being the people of
God and doing the work of God -
because we love Jesus.
Love and blessings

Is it a house



or a church? L


By Father Don Wilson
For any one that has seen the
little house/church on top of the
hill across from the radio station
on US 90 West, in Lake City, one
would have to ask the question
...what is it ?
Well, if you were to stop
by one Sunday morning, I
think you would be
surprised.
To start with, my name is Father Don Wilson and I am
currently the rector of the Faith in Christ Anglican Church
in Lake City, and I would love to tell you all about our
little chapel on the hill.
About five years ago a group of Christians sought to
have a local Anglican church in this area.
We started a Bible Study in an old house on US 90
West and soon the people who attending began.to ask if
we could start having services there, as several of them
had quit going to church or just were looking for a new
place to worship.
We first met in one of the qld bedrooms for Bible study
and fixed up the living ioom to have a worship service.
Once we decided to fix up the old house, we needed
some appointments for the service. We needed a
communion table, and found an old English sideboard
that just.was right. After we'purchased it we had a local
woodworker (Ken Wood) add a tabernacle and place for
the candlesticks.
He even carved some English crosses to cover the
pulls. Many different individuals in both Lake City 'and
Live Oak have helped us with the donations to complete
our sanctuary.
Some of the items that were given to us, had originally
came from England.
When we needed some more space and wanted to make
the old house really come alive as our little church
building, we took an old room on the back of the building
to put the sanctuary.
Wow! You need to see it now.
At one time there were homing pigeons flying in and
out of this room. The room was full of junk, including an
old washer and hot water heater. It looked like you could
never make it into anything. We had to have windows
made to fit in between the studs and put in big enough

doors to have a wedding party get through.
Well you should see what a few dedicated, hard
working Christians can accomplish when they work
together.
Our little chapel on the hill is only 31 feet long and 16
feet wide, but it is overflowing with the Love of Jesus.
Since we moved into this place we have added many
personal touches. One of the special blessings was some
stained glass windows. Let me tell you about these
windows. We met together and designed the windows
with Christian symbols from throughout Christendom and
theh chose two or three for each window to make a story.
Each window brings to light the stories of Baptism,
Salvation, Communion, the Light of the World, The
Agnus Dei (or Lamb of God), Repentance and
Forgiveness, Pentecost, Prayer and Christ the Victorious
King.
Once we knew what to have on the windows, we hired
a local artist in Lake City, Elizabeth Lee, to hand-paint

grass right now."
Now comes some of the
dangerous ones.
"Does this new dress
make me look fat?" Every
seasoned husband knows
what this actually means
is, "I saved a lot of money
on this dress and I think it
fits me perfectly." Any
husband who deviates
from this is in serious
trouble.
One bit of doubletalk
took a long time for me to
understand.,It goes, some-
thing like this, "I'm too
tired to cook supper
tonight."
After a few failed inter-
pretations of this bit of
doubletalk, I discovered it
really means, "I want to go
out for supper tonight."
After 38 years of marital
bliss, I have learned that
understanding doubletalk
is the key to the "bliss."
When it comes to God,
there is no doubletalk. The
Bible is plain; it says what
it means and means what
it says. For example, Jesus
says, "Come unto me, all
ye that labour and are
heavy laden, and I will
give you rest. Take my
yoke upon you, and learn
of me; for I am meek and
lowly in heart: and ye


shall find rest unto.your
souls.
For my yoke is easy, and
my burden is light"
(Matthew 11:28-30 KJV).
You can be sure that
God will not give you any
doubletalk.

made the worship atmosphere truly reverent.
The last thing that we did to our little building was to
put a steeple on it, with speakers hooked to our music.
Now each Sunday morning .when we end, the service
bells chime through our steeple to let the surrounding area
know that Jesus Christ is LORD and He is worshiped
here.
We plan on staying in our building until we completely
outgrow it and I told the congregation when we are filling
this facility twice each Sunday, and have the funds to do
it, we can consider building something new.

SHINE program to continue

essential service for elders

Funds will maintain free information and
counseling to Medicare beneficiaries -


Florida's SHINE
program, which helps
seniors get the most out of
their Medicare benefits
and make informed
choices about sometimes
confusing health care
options, has received a
federal award of more than
$2.3 million, the
Department of Elder
Affairs announced.
The award represents
the 17th year of funding
for SHINE (Servi'ng
Health Insurance Needs of.
Elders), a state-based
program that provides free
and unbiased counseling, to
Medicare beneficiaries and
their caregivers on a wide
variety of Medicare and
health insurance topics.
The SHINE program
offers counseling and
information through a
network of more than 400
dedicated volunteers and
more than 300 community
partners. Over the past two
years SHINE has assisted
more than 530,000 clients
across the state through
either one-on-one
counseling, educational
presentations to
community groups or
health and senior fairs.
"At a time when many
elders are finding it
difficult to pay for ,
essential medications,
SHINE counselors are
truly a lifeline for Florida's
Medicare beneficiaries,"


said Elder Affairs
Secretary E. Douglas
Beach. "With so many
resources straining to help
citizens in need, it's
especially gratifying that
SHINE will be able to
continue its outstanding
service."
Under federal law, every
state has a State Health
Insurance Assistance
Program, or SHIP,
responsible for operating
local insurance counseling
and prescription assistance
programs. The SHINE
program serves as the
SHIP in Florida, and will
receive $2,349,987 in the
coming fiscal year through
a grant fi'om the federal
Centers for Medicare &
Medicaid Services (CMS).
The amount is the same as
for the current year, and is
part of almost $36 million
in basic program grants
being distributed to SHIPs
across the country.
"SHINE serves an
important role in providing
information and support to
people with Medicare all
across Florida," said CMS
Acting Administrator
Charlene Frizzera. "This
new funding will help to
ensure that SHINE
continues to work with
local governments,
community-based
organizations and other
partners in Florida to help
meet the needs of our


Medicare beneficiaries."
A significant
achievement of Florida's
,SHINE program has been
to educate and guide many
of the state's 3.3 million
Medicare beneficiaries
about their prescription
drug coverage options.
With the continued 2009
funding, SHINE will
conduct targeted
community-based
outreach, with a special
emphasis on reaching
seniors who will most
likely be eligible for
Medicare's low-income
subsidy if they enroll for
Medicare prescription
drug coverage.
SHINE is committed to
working with partners
statewide to reach current
and newly eligible
Medicare beneficiaries
who may qualify for
programs that can help
them lower their Medicare
costs. For more
information on Medicare
Savings Programs,
including the low-income
subsidy program or state-
sponsored health insurance
or prescription discount
options such as the Florida
Discount Drug Card and
the Cover Florida Health
Care Access Program,

Department's Elder
