 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.

AARP worry they won't be able to afford

Ghostbusters: The Videogame


Trapping ghosts is an absolute
bhast; you can practically feel
the power behind the proton
beam that you use.


By Cody' Webb
The famous
Ghostbusters are
back, and this
time they need
help! It's
Thanksgiving of
1991 in New
York and a
strange paranormal
shockwave has unleashed
ghosts upon the whole city.
This leads the Ghostbusters
to hire a new recruit: you.
You're simply called the
Rookie and you're in charge
of trying out new,
experimental, and often
dangerous equipment.
Ghostbusters: The
Videogame was developed
by Terminal Reality, and
was released for the
Playstation 3, and the Xbox
360. There's also a version �
for the Wii, but it features


wacky character
models and just
. e isn't the same
Ghostbusters
experience as the
other two
versions. I'll be
focusing on the
versions for the
PS3 and the 360. All three
versions are rated T for
Teen.
While the Wii version has
bland graphics and odd
character models, the PS3
and 360 versions are
faithfully realistic. It's
amazing how much work
went into making each of
the heroes look perfect
down to the smallest detail.
It's obvious that the same
amount of work went into
recreating the proton pack
and the new gadgets that
spring from it. The


environments look great as
well, even after you and the
crew get finished with them.
Trapping ghosts is an
absolute blast; you can
practically feel the power
behind the proton beam that
you use. The beam will rip
through furniture and scorch
the walls of the rooms you'll
fight ghosts in. Capturing
the ectoplasmic beasties is
simple: first you weaken
them by hitting them with
the beam until you can rope
them with a capture beam.
The mechanics behind
catching and then leading
them to your trap is very
similar to Luigi's Mansion,
so fans of that game will be
right at home here.
It's a shame you don't
spend the entire game
fighting trappable ghosts,
because the game will throw


other creatures at you that
don't need to be, or can't be,
captured. These you just
shoot until they disappear or
until you can rip out their
weak point, but it's just not
as much fun as trapping the
ghosts. Speaking of
disappointments, the ghosts
tend to get in a lot of cheap
shots, which can lead you,
of the Ghostbusters, to being
knocked down and
incapacitated. The health
meter doesn't do a good
enough job of making itself
noticed, and your AI
buddies aren't any better at
avoiding these cheap shots.
So, more often than not,
you'll have a game over
screen in front of your eyes.
The game redeems itself
by giving players a great
story to play through, and
with the original


Ghostbusters lending their
voice talents to the game, it
really comes to life.
Whether it's Venkman
making his sarcastic
remarks, or Ray flipping out
over the paranormal
experiences, they go a long
way to making the story fun
to sit through. In my ,
opinion, this game's script
would make an excellent
third movie, but only if it
was a bit longer than it
ended up being.
If you don't want to play
as the nameless recruit, you
can step into the boots of the
Ghostbusters themselves in
multiplayer modes. You'll
be playing against other
players to see who can
capture the most ghosts, or
working together to survive
as many waves of enemies
as you can. It's loads of fun,

So would I recommend
this entry into the

-definitely would; fans of the

able to fight ghosts alongside
their favorite ghost hunters.
People new to the

good game here, but it really

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: Is It true that white wine can stain your
teeth?
A: Well, it's not just the white wine that
can stain you teeth. But, researchers at
the New York University College of
Dentistry found in a study that drinking
white wine can leave your teeth
susceptible to stains from drinking tea.
Though the study found that white wine
remains preferable to red wine in terms of
the potential stainirig effect on teeth, it
also found that the acid content in white
wine increases the risk of staining from
the chromogens that are in tea and other
foods. The researchers did not specifically
test for coffee.,They noted, however, that
the intensity of chromogens in coffee is
not as strong as those in 'tea. The
researchers did their experiments on
cows' teeth, which, they said, have a
surface similar to that of human teeth.
So, drinking white wine with fruit or
cheese is not going to leave you with
stains. Researchers also noted that white
wine drinkers should wait 40 minutes to
an hour before brushing their teeth to give
saliva the opportunity to remineralizb the
surface of the teeth. Talk with your dentist
about ways to avoid tooth staining.

Treatments for Atrial Fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation, also known as, afib, is a common type of
arrhythmia, a condition in which the heart beats rapidly and out of
normal coordination. Over 2 million people in the United States are
affected by this condition. The risk of afib increases in men with
increasing age, as well as in persons with a heart condition or family
history of afib. Other potential causes of this condition include high
blood pressure, a heart attack, and certain medications. Signs and
symptoms of atrial fibrillation include shortness of breath, chest pain,
and weakness. Symptoms may come and go, also known as
paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, or, if the condition is chronic,
symptoms may persist until treatment is started. Although afib may
lead to a stroke or heart failure, medications are available to help
prevent complications.
Treatment is aimed at controlling heart rate or rhythm, 'and
preventing blood clots. Medications for heart rhythm control include
sodium channel blocker medications such as flecrnide (Tambocor)
and propafqenone (Rhythmol), as well as potassium channel blockers,
such as amiodarone (Cordarone, Paccrone), dolfetilide (Tikosyn), and
ibutilide (Corvert). Digoxin (Lanoxin) may he prescribed to help
control heart rate. Warfarin (CouImadin) may also he prescribed Io
help prevent blood clots.

OPINION





Florida's true

conservative
Though still 18 months away, the 2010 election
cycle rapidly approaches, bringing significant of-
fices and candidates to the spotlight. Experts in
national politics have shifted their attention to one
candidacy that has the enormous potential to re-
turn conservatism to its core principles and lead
the Republican Party to a bright and successful
future. When Mel Martinez vacates his U.S. Sen-
ate seat, I hope I see former House Speaker Mar-
co Rubio fly to Washington to replace him.
Rubio was elected to the Florida House in 2000
and gradually rose to numerous leadership posi-
tions, eventually becoming the youngest Speaker
in Florida's history in 2006. He most notably ,
published a book entitled 100 Innovative Ideas for
Florida's Future, a culmination of ideas from
Floridians as he traveled the state. On May 5,
2009, Mr. Rubio announced his intention to ag-
gressively run for Mr. Martinez's seat and made it
clear that the rumored entry of the popular gover-
nor would not alter his decision.
Born to Cuban immigrants, Rubio cherishes
and recognizes the freedoms we take for granted
and has continually stated his intention to defend
those freedoms and the documents that articulate
them. At the young age of 38, Rubio brings youth
and energy to the Grand Old Party. As Speaker,
Rubio devoted his tenure to tax reform and reduc-
ing the role of government in the lives, of Floridi-
ans. Truly, Rubio embodies the future success of
a party that is in dire need of optimism and
promise.
Now as a U.S. Senate candidate, and then as
Speaker, one person continues to: make life miser-
able for the charismatic Rubio,- and in turn, the
average Floridian. This person is your popular
and centrist Governor Charlie Crist.
Crist definitely deserves his status as a centrist,
for he not only supported Obama's stimulus, but
actively campaigned for public support with Oba-
ma on stage! Additionally, after signing the
Americans for Tax Reform anti-tax pledge (which
Rubio also signed) at the beginning of his term,
Crist decided in May he just couldn't keep that
promise, so he signs into law the $1 cigarette tax.
increase. To heck with capitalism! Hooray for
hypocrisy! The list goes on and on when it
comes to Crist's failure to implement and promote
true conservative values. Political ambition as a
motive is too conspicuous for our governor to
deny.
Rubio's bid for this seat speaks to his courage
and determination to fight for the American
Dream, as well as another seat added to the limit-
ed conservative representation in Washington. No
doubt about it, it will be an uphill climb for our
defender. Current polls show Crist leading by a
span of 25 points, solely due to lack of name
recognition. I challenge every conservative-mind-
ed individual, and registered Republican, to re-
search Mr. Rubio and, if you like what you see,
help and support him. Frankly, we don't need
Crist in the Senate, as unpredictable a vote as he
is. We already got rid of one Arlen Specter; we
definitely don't need another! '
You know what you're getting with Rubio. A
well-educated, experienced, and properly motivat-
ed candidate who has already proven himself to
be Florida's true conservative!

Trannie Lacquey is helping children
from Branford to the jungles of Nepal


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com
A grandmother of six crosses a swollen river while
hiking through a tension-filled comer of Nepal. Before
reaching their destination, she and a group of disaster
relief volunteers encounter Maoist guerrillas. A 19-
year-old Maoist guerrilla soldier approaches her. She
takes off her hat and begins turning it nervously in her
hand, as if turning the whole word around. But she
isn't afraid, just frustrated. There are children waiting
for shelter.
Trannie Lacquey, a mother of six daughters and six
grandchildren, grew up in a small town, graduated
from Florida State's.College of Education and
manages her own pine straw business with her
husband. In her free time, however, she travels to
dangerous foreign countries caught in the grips of
disaster to deliver aid, or teaches children to read who
have, never held a book.
In 2007, she and her husband traveled to Nepal as
volunteers with a ShelterBox
response team. ShelterBo\
is a project started bN the
RotarN Club of Helston-
Lizard. England in
., ' , ' , 2001. The purpose
of ShelterBox is
to deliver
custom made
shelters to ,B

Rotary Club of Branford members John and Trannie Lacquey.


disaster situations. The shelter contains supplies that
include a large tent, blankets, water purification and
cooking equipment, basic tools, and a multi-fuel stove.
"Those people were completely wiped out," said
Lacquey. "I can remember being stunned by so many
displaced children. Napal was the first time I'd ever
been to a third-world country."
Her efforts to improve the lives of children are part
of the reason Florida State University chose Lacquey
as the College of Education's 2009 Distinguished
Alumna, Business and Industry category. Lacquey was
nominated for this award by her daughter, Jennifer
Winnet. You'll never hear Trannie Lacquey say, "Do
you need help?" but instead, "Tell me what I can do to
help," said Winnet in her nomination essay. To quality
for the award the nominee had to currently be
employed in business and industry and should have
demonstrated exemplary contributions toward
improving the educational quality within their
community through various activities.
Branford's Lacquey was more than qualified.
During 20 years of living in this community, she has
volunteered countless hours in the classroom, served
on the SAC comrnnuttee for several years, and
continually gi% esiboth ume and money for programs
that benefit students and teachers. Lacquey has
i also volunteered as a track coach and a
basketball coach among many other roles.
In recent ) ears, Lacquey and her
husband have gotten involved with
organizations that help children
overseas with not only disaster relief,
but also educational needs.
S"Kids, oh my gosh, they're so
beautiful," said Lacquey. "I just
love children. However, I've
seen that the difference in
children here and children
abroad is that for
children overseas,
education is usually the
only way out of their
situation."
She spoke in melancholy


"',,


Lacquey noted the
refugees in Nepal took
little for granted. She
spoke of "seeing
people so poor it's
almost
incomprehensible and
yet seeing beautiful,
happy children and
incredible smiles on
the women. And when
these people have
nothing but the tent
you've given to them, it
changes you."


tones as she thought back on scenes of refugee camps
in Nepal and the appalling slums of Belize.
"Education is very important wherever you are, but
for them its essential," said Lacquey.
"Owning our own business has given my husband
and I the opportunity to do these things," said
Lacquey. "Volunteering is what I like to do. After
raising my family I decided this is how I want to
spend my time."
Lacquey has traveled all over the Caribbean and to
other countries, in South America and elsewhere,
promoting literacy and delivering books.
As this article went to press, Lacquey and her
husband were en route to Costa Rica for the second
time on a literacy campaign.
"We're just getting started," Lacquey said excitedly.
"We'll go anywhere an opportunity comes up."
When Lacquey got back from Nepal, her children
gave her a book of quotes. "My favorite was by Albert
Pike. He says 'What we have done for ourselves alone
dies with us; what we have done for others and the
world remains and is immortal'," said Lacquey. "Isn't
that just wonderful?"
These qualities of charity, kindness and love are
expressions too rarely seen. Lacquey, however, speaks
of love and kindness like one speaks of common
sense. "People here sometimes take for granted all the
things they have," said Lacquey. In a previous
interview for this newspaper, Lacquey noted the
refugees in Nepal took little fobr granted. She spoke of
"seeing people so poor it's almost incomprehensible
and yet seeing beautiful, happy children and incredible
smiles on the women. And when these people have
nothing but the tent you've given to them, it changes
you."

American Cement in Branford forced into layoffs


B), Stephenie Livingston
Suwannee American Cement
Company has recently been forced
to scale back production and lay
off workers. With the amount of
construction dropping in Florida
due to the economic downturn, it
is not surprising that cement
companies all over Florida are


cutting back.
According to Tom Messer, plant
manager of Suwannee American
Cement Co., Florida reached and
all time high of 12.3 million tons
of cement consumed in 2006 but
has projected statewide sales of
5.1 million for 2009.
This 59 percent drop in sales has


been strongly felt by all cement
producers in Florida, including
Suwannee American Cement.
"As a company we have made
prudent reductions to remain
competitive in a very tough
market," stated Messer in press
release. "We remain hopeful that
the economic stimulus package


will begin to take affect in late
2009 and early 2010 allowing
Suwannee American Cement to
fully utilize out faculty and work
force."
'The number of employees laid'
off does not sound drastic, but it
was a big hit for us. We lost one of
our electricians and other


employee's that have not been
replaced due to lack of funds,"
said a representative for the
company. "We hope to be able to
re-hire these people eventually if
they haven't already found new
jobs.'.'
Messer would not comment on
the exact number of jobs lost.

The Safety Line from Suwannee County Fire/Rescue
From the Fire and Life Safety Division/County Fire Marshal


Hurricane Season is upon us. Many of
us have prepared for this hurricane season
by purchasing portable generators.
Portable generators are useful during
power outages. However, many
homeowners are unaware that the
improper use of portable generators can be
risky. The most common dangers
associated with portable generators are
carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning,
electrical shock or electrocution, and fire
hazards.

Facts and figures:
CO deaths associated with generators
have spiked in recent years as generator


sales have risen.
In 1999, generators were associated with
6% of the total yearly estimated CO
poisoning deaths associated with all
consumer products compared to 24% in
2002.
There were at least 64 deaths in 2005
alone from CO poisoning associated with
generators.

Commission

National Fire Protection Association
safety tips
* Generators should be operated in well-,


ventilated locations outdoors away from
all,doors, windows and vent openings.
* The generator should be placed so that
exhaust fumes cannot enter the home
through windows, doors or other building
openings.
* Install carbon monoxide (CO) alarms
in your home. Follow manufacturer's
instructions for proper placement and
mounting height. Should CO enter the'
home and pose a risk, an alarm will sound.
* The generator must not be refueled
while it is running. It should be turned off
and allowed to cool down before refueling.
* Fuel for the generator should never be
stored in the home. Gasoline and other


flammable liquids should be stored outside
of living areas in properly labeled safety
containers.
* Appliances should be plugged directly
into the generator or a heavy-duty outdoor-
rated extension cord. The cord should be
checked for cuts or. tears and that the plug
has all three prongs, especially a
grounding pin.
* If the generator must be connected to
the house wiring to power appliances, a
qualified electrician should install a
properly rated transfer switch in
accordance with the National Electrical
Code(r) (NEC) and all applicable state and
local electrical codes.

Derek Maul gets real: A review of his first book


In other words, we work
best when we work
together. (Toward that end,
a workbook for small
groups is available to
accompany "Get Real.")
Then begins true
spiritual growth.
"As Christian men we're
called to break out of the
mediocrity of our
uninspired lives," Maul


writes. "...My ordinariness,
it turns out, happens to be
the perfect vehicle for the
glory of God. Our
ordinariness is God's
opportunity. Spiritual
growth, then - our
deliberate progress as
Christians living out our
day-to-day lives - is the
ultimate exercise in
'keeping it real.'"


It's a fine book, and
we're glad to recommend
it.

Biographical note:
Maul is married to
Rebekah, a Presbyterian
pastor They have two
children, Andrew (who
currently lives in Italy) and
Naomi (who lives in
Connecticut with her


husband of two years,
Craig Campbell).
Before becoming a full-
time writer, 'Maul taught
public school in Florida
for 18 years,. including
cutting-edge work with
autistic children. He holds
bachelor's degrees in
psychology and education
from Stetson University
and the University of West


Florida.
Maul is active in
teaching at his church:
adult Sunday school,
small-group ministry, and
a men's Bible
study/spiritual formation
group. He enjoys the
outdoors, traveling,
photography, reading,
cooking, playing guitar
and golf


Staff
Derek Maul, whose
Columns you've been
reading in the Democrat for
a number of years now,
keeps plenty busy. In
addition to writing a
weekly op-ed column for
the Tampa Tribune, his
work has appeared in
Newsweek, USA Today,
The Christian Science
Monitor, Presbyterians
Today, Guideposts,,
Chicken Soup for the Soul
and many other print and
o0nline publications.
He writes books as well.
"In My Heart I Carry A
Star" was a bestseller last
Christmas. "The Unmaking
of a Part Time Christian"
will be released in
September, It's Maul's first
book that got us hooked,
however. "Get Real: A
Spiritual Journey for Men"
is Derek at his best.
The style is classic Maul
- clear and down-to-earth,
yet elegant. Forget the
complex abstractions. Maul
addresses the problems of
real men in the real world.
When he talks about
fellowship, he means it in
the most compelling sense.
"Sometimes it's tough to
accept the truth that God
did not create us to take on
this world alone," he
writes. "Sure, Jesus, works
powerfully in our
individual lives. But God
typically achieves his most
compelling work where
two or three - or just a few
more - are gathered
together."

River Regional Library is one of 269
libraries, municipalities, and arts, culture,
higher education, and science organizations
to receive a grant to host The' Big Read from
September 2009-June 2010. The Big Read

together to read, discuss, and celebrate one
of 30 selections from American and world


literature. The Big Read in Suwannee
.County will focus on Call of the Wild by
Jack London. Activities proposed will take

Members of the Board:


-A ..


This letter is; written on behalf of the Suwannee County
residents who oppose any tax rate increases whatsoever. ,,We
understand you feel it is your responsibility to provide the
services that your constituents request. However,, we feel
your main priority is to treat our hard earned money just as
any reputable business would. .Spend itwisely and .make
every dollar count.

This past year has been exceptionally tough for the private
sector. Job losses, pay cuts, and businesses simply being
forced to shut down have affected a lot of people. Yet every
level of government feels it can just keep going without
making any sacrifices. We would like to encourage you to
make Suwannee County an exception. As you go into this
next)(budget year figure out how to cut costs so that no rate
increases have to be passed onto your constituents.


Sincerely,

Suwannee County Resident

Rate hike request

draws a crowd


Continued From Page 1A

Members of the Florida
Public Service Commis-
sion listened as local and
neighboring folks voiced
their opinions about a peti-
tion by Progress Energy
Florida to raise its base
rate by 31.5 percent.
Progress would be set to
gain $500 million annually
and customers would pay
$13.83 more a month for
utility services starting
January 1, 2010.
On May 19, the PSC ap-
proved a small residential
adjustment of $4.52 per
1000 kilowatt-hours, a
base rate-increase Progress
customers will notice on
their July bill.
"The cost increases that
we see today can no longer
be absorbed," said Alex
Glenn, a company lawyer.
He said Progress is striv-
ing to remain "a financial-
ly healthy utility," but
"must raise their rates to
keep their investors."
Jacqui Sulek, a worker
for Audubon of Florida,
who has taken personal
steps such as hanging a
clothesline and not using
her home air-conditioner at
night, said the rate increase
would "put a burden on


our people at this time."
Shef Wright, a represen-
tative for the Florida Retail
Federation, echoed that
thought. He alleged that
Progress was asking for
too much.
"We oppose this rate in-
crease," Wright said. "We
are not talking about cut-
ting jobs, taking people out
of the field that provide
you electrical service.
We're talking about lower-
ing their profit and flowing
money back to you."
Tim Leljedal, a
spokesman for Progress,
said the company has con-
stantly reduced its costs
and kept its base rate down'
nearly 1 percent over the
past 25 years.
"We've come to the
point where we can't con-
tinue to reduce prices in
that way anymore," he
said.
He argues that just like
"the cost goods and ser-
vices has increased over a
period of time, it's no dif-
ferent for energy."
The PSC has several
more hearings scheduled
around the state like the
one held here Thursday.
The Commission is ex-
pected to vote on the mat-
ter in November.

"He knowingly violated

said at the meeting.
Commissioner Wesley

to Alcorn's reappointment.
"It's an element of repre-

FORWARD OPERAT-
ING BASE WARRIOR,
KIRKUK, Iraq - Iraqi po-
lice and coalition forces
brought a little relief to the
Iraqi village of Qutan in
Kirkuk province recently.
IP from the Mari police
sub-station in the Dibbis
District, assisted by Sol-
diers from 1st Battalidn,
8th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd
Brigade Combat Team, 1st
Cavalry Division, delivw-
ered 150 food bags of per-
ishable foods consisting of
beans, rice, cooking oil
and tomatoes.
According to 1st Lt.
Winfield Swanton, Holden,
Maine, native and platoon
leader in 1st Bn., 8th Cav.
Regt., the food is pur-
chased from local vendors
to benefit merchants as
well.
The village mukhtar
gathered the residents of
Qutan near a school and
while Swanton's Soldiers
handled security, the IP de-
livered the food.
Staff Sgt. Dean Hills,
Live Oak, a dismounted
infantryman squad leader .
in 1st Bn., 8th Cav. Regt.,
said the process for choos-
ing which villages receive


in mission
the assistance begins with
coordination with the IP.
"We get with the IP or
Iraqi army and find the
poorest villages that need
the aid," Hills said. "This
village's crops aren't doing
well due to the drought
and because the large
swine population, which
are eating the crops."
Hill said the swine pop-
ulation is so large because
they aren't a part of the
diet here.
According to U.S. Air
Force weather data, Kirkuk
province is suffering from
a four-year drought that
has had an adverse impact
on farming, one of the
main sources of revenue in
Kirkuk.
While the IP delivered
the food, 1st Bn.; 8th Cav.
Regt Soldiers passed out
several soccer balls to a
group of eager children
gathered at the school.
"Aside from the food de-
livery, the soccer balls let
them see that we are here
to help," Swanton said.
Swanton said this was
the second food drop his
platoon has performed.
"The first food delivery
we did was in
Qushquaya," Swanton
said. "We plan on doing
these types of missions
with the IP or IA once a
week."

Attempted robbery

was a joke, man claims

said Cameron. The clerk
asked if he was trying .to
break the counter. That was
when the man allegedly put
a hand into his pocket, told
the clerk he had a handgun
and demanded all.the mon-
ey. Cameron said the clerk
told him to get out of the
store. A brief argument en-
sued before the man was
removed from the store by
another customer.
Cameron said the man re-
portedly told the clerk
from the parking lot that
he was only joking and
was not attempting to rob


the store. Cameron said
the man then left the park-
ing lot in a blue pickup
truck and went back to
work on a nearby farm
while the clerk called law
enforcement. Cameron
said the clerk did not use
the panic alarm, however.
Cameron said the:state
attorney will now decide
the 19-year-old's fate since
law enforcement is not yet
able to determine if he
meant to rob the store or if
it was just a cruel joke.
"We're waiting for the
state attorney to see
whether he will be
charged," said Cameron.

Shaw said an argument
broke out between the two
about the kind of music
they would listen to. Del
Carpico then allegedly
stabbed Heinandez, possi-
bly with a pocketknife, and
fled on foot. Del Carpico
was found walking about
two blocks away by LOPD
officers. He was positively
identified by Hernandez as


the person that stabbed
him, Shaw said.
Hernandez was taken to
Shands Live Oak and later
transferred to a Gainesville
area hospital. Shaw there is
no report on his condition
at this time, but that he "ap-
peared to be suffering from
non-life-threatening in-
juries."

and charged with aggravat-
ed battery. He was trans-
ported to the Suwannee

The Melody Christian Wildcats took first place recently after traveling to Stillwater,
Okla. to compete in the Oklahoma State Team Camp. The Wildcats played great as
a team and took first place going 10-0 in three days, playing two 20 minute halves
just like the college teams. The Wildcats did well being short-handed with only eight
players. The Wildcats look to sneak up on the competition next year as they play in

All-star


time


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
The Major
League Baseball
All-Star game
will have been
played by the
time you read
this article. It
won't make a difference
because Willie Mays is still
the most exciting all-star to
play the game. Mbises Alou
and Gary Sheffield each
represented five different
teams as all-stars but they
ain't Willie. Pete Rose played
five different positions but he
still isn't the Say Hey Kid.
Willie Mays played in 24
all-star games and his team
won 17 of them. Willie was
the first player to reach 30
homers by the all-star break.
Retired since 1973, he still
holds the record for most
triples (three) and stolen bases
(six). He scored the only run
in the 1968 all-star game and
was one of the few all-stars
who played almost every
inning of every all-star game

Flyball racing classes
Too Hot to Handle Flyball Racing Team
will be holding 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 another 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/.

Oral Health Maintenance Important
for Patients With Osteoporosis
It has long been known that oral health and other ailments may go
hand-in-hand. That is why routine oral health screenings are so
important. Take for. example, osteoporosis. Physicians and dentists
should collaborate to improve early detection and treatment of
patients who have or may develop osteoporosis, said researchers in
the cover story of the May 2008 Issue of The Journal of the
American Dental Association.

The authors of the article, "Osteoporosis and Its Implications for
Dental Patients," reviewed the medical and dental literature to
examine osteoporosis' effect on public health in the United States.
They also assessed the implications of providing dental care to
people who have or are at risk of developing osteoporosis.

According to the authors, the literature indicated that osteoporosis
and related fractures are more common than coronary disease,
stroke and breast cancer. Fractures resulting from osteoporosis can
affect a patient's quality of life, as well as result in functional
impairment and increased health care cost and mortality.

Their literature search also revealed that medical management of
osteoporosis includes diet control, weight-bearing exercise,
discontinuation of tobacco and alcohol intake, and use of
medications -- including selective estrogen receptor modulators,
calcitonin, anabolic agents and bisphosphonates -- that have been
associated with the development of osteonecrosis of the jaw.

The authors determined that oral health maintenance Is important in;
patients with osteoporosis, and that changes to bisphosphQnate
therapy or other medical treatment should be made only after
consultation with the patient's physician. "Dentists need to
understand osteoporosis, its treatments and its complications to
provide adequate care," wrote the authors.

All health care professionals Involved in the care of all dental
patients, particularly patients who are taking oral bisphosphonates,
should discuss patient care decisions with the patient's physician,
the authors concluded.

T.M., since almost 10% of the country is out of work at

kindergarten registration
July 21


can give you: -
The first thing you need to know is that by filing suit
the creditor has decided that it wants to get a judgment
against you, which will include the costs of filing suit,
and attorneys fees, most likely, in addition to the princi-
pal amount due and owing, plus late fees, over-the-limit
charges and all the rest. Sometimes creditors will delay
filing suit against debtors because the interest rate they
are getting, which can be as high as 28% or more on the
credit card agreement is MUCH higher than the interest
allowed on a judgment. In Florida, per Statute 55.03, the
rate is 8% for this year, 2009.
If you don't show up in Court on the designated day,
the Judge will undoubtedly enter a judgment against you
for the full amount of money demanded. Once a judg- '
ment is entered, the creditor will then seek to EXECUTE
on its judgment, which means it will look to see what as-
sets you have and make a determination as to what assets
they can get. You will be required to fill out a fact infor-
mation sheet and tell the creditor what assets you have.
Creditors sometimes take depositions of debtors to aid
them in their efforts to satisfy their judgments.
Now, if you do show up in Court, the Judge will ask
you if you admit to owing the money or not. If you say
you don't think you owe ALL of the money demanded,

he or she will send you to meet with the creditor and a
mediator to try to come to an agreement regarding what
is owed. If you have some money, you can enter into a
new payment plan, at the reduced rate of interest, and
avoid a judgment. If you have enough money, you can
sometimes negotiate a full settlement for much less than
the amount demanded as creditors are happy to get cash
instead of a promise to pay in the future. If you can't
reach agreement, the Judge will set the case for trial for a
later date, maybe a month or so later, thereby giving you
an additional month to find work and a source of income
so that you can enter into some kind of agreement.
In my next column, which will come out in August, I'll
tell you about what creditors can get and what they can't
get, but for now, T.M., my advice is that you should
show up in court and do what you can to avoid having a
judgment entered against you. If you have enough mon-
ey, the services of an attorney can help to negotiate a fa-
vorable settlement, but if you had the money, you'd pay
the debt, right? While money is said to be the root of all
evil, it is also the cure for many problems, especially the
ones you are having. There is no easy answer to your
question, T.M, but I hope I have helped you some.
Any readers with specific legal questions for this "Ask
a Lawyer" column are invited to submit those questions
to the Editor of this newspaper, who will pass it along to.

Anna Julia Cooper immortalized on stamp


32nd Inductee into

Black Heritage Series

- Educator, scholar, feminist and activist Anna Julia
Cooper (c. 1858-1964), who gave voice to the African-
American community during the 19th and 20th centuries -
from the end of slavery to the beginning of the Civil Rights
movement - was immortalized on postage today.
Cooper, best known for her groundbreaking collection of
essays and speeches,
A Voice from the South by a Black Woman of the South,
also exhibited educational leadership, most notably
challenging the racist notion that African Americans were
naturally inferior.
The'U.S. Postal Service dedicated the stamp today at
Washington, DC's Paul Laurence Dunbar High School
(previously M Street High School and the Preparatory High
School for Colored Youth), where Cooper taught math and
science and ultimately served as principal.
"Anna Julia Cooper once said, 'The cause of freedom is
not the cause of a race or a sect, a party or a class - it is the
cause of humankind, the very birthright of humanity.' Her.
actions to support these memorable words during her life are
the reason the Postal Service has chosen Ms. Cooper as the
subject of the 32nd stamp in the Black Heritage series," said
Delores Killette, vice president and Consumer Advocate.
"Cooper wasn't subdued by the color of her skin, her
gender, her lack of opportunity, or lack of wealth," Killette
added. "She held an instinctive awareness that by virtue of
being human, she was entitled to freely know the world and
participate in everything it had to offer. This is what ignited
the cause of freedom in Anna Julia Cooper."
Joining Killette in dedicating the stamp were Rep. Eleanor
Holmes Norton, (D) District of Columbia, University of
Maryland English Professor Carla L. Peterson, 2009 Dunbar
High School graduate Malik Shabaazz, Dunbar High School
Principal Gerald Austin and Washington, DC, Postmaster
Yverne "Pat" Moore.

The 44-cent First-Class
Anna Julia Cooper"
commemorative stamp features a portrait of her created
by Kadir Nelson of San Diego, CA, who based his painting
on an undated photograph. Nelson worked under the
direction of Art Directbr Ethel Kessler of Bethesda, MD. All
125 million stamps, available in sheets of 20, are available
nationwide today.
Anna Julia Cooper Background
Cooper - who once described her vocation as "the
education of neglected people" - viewed learning as a
means of true liberation.
Anna Julia Haywood was born into slavery around 1858
in Raleigh, NC. As a child, she developed a love of learning
and wanted to become a teacher. In 1868, she received a
scholarship to enter the inaugural class at St. Augustine's
Normal School and Collegiate Institute (now St. Augustine's
College), a local school for African Americans created by the
Episcopal Church and the Freedmen's Bureau, where she
earned part of her tuition by tutoring fellow students. She
continued to teach at St. Augustine's after completing her
studies in 1877. That year she married George A.C. Cooper,
who was studying for the ministry at St. Augustine's.
Two years after her husband's unexpected death in 1879,
Cooper enrolled at Oberlin College in Ohio. In 1884 she
graduated with a degree in mathematics, becoming one of
the first African American women to graduate from the
school. Cooper returned to Raleigh and taught math, Greek
and Latin at St. Augustine's until
1887, when she was invited to teach math and science at the
Preparatory High School for Colored Youth (later known as
M Street and today as Dunbar High School) in Washington,
DC, the largest and most prestigious public high school for
African Americans in the nation.
In 1892, Cooper published
A Voice from the South by a Black Woman of the South,
the first book-length volume of black feminist analysis in the
United States. Cooper explored a variety of topics including
race relations, poverty, and gender inequality. Across the
contexts of religion, education, and literature, she examined
the place of African Americans, especially women, in
American society. "The time is ripe for action," she wrote,
urging all readers to assume an active role in liberating
themselves and others from both racism and sexism in order
to realize their fullest potential. She encouraged the African
American community to take advantage of education and to
develop and promote its own folklore, literature, and artistic
culture. Well received by black and white critics alike, the
collection was regarded as "one of the most readable books
on the race question of the South" by the

Kingsley Times ,
of Iowa.
Because white women routinely excluded them from the
growing feminist movement, Cooper and other black
women across the nation began to create clubs and
associations in the late 19th century that were dedicated to
the interests and well-being of the African American
community. In Washington, DC, Cooper helped establish
local organizations for women, young people, and the poor
that addressed a range of issues including education,
housing, and unemployment. Cooper also used public
speaking as a platform for change. In 1893, she spoke about
the needs of African American women at the Chicago
World's Fair, and she was one of only two African American
women to address the first Pan-African Conference in
London in 1900.
In 1902, Cooper became principal of the M Street High
School and immediately worked to strengthen the
curriculum, which stressed both liberal arts and vocational


School to teach Latin.
Noted for the breadth of her education, Cooper studied
French literature and history for several years before
enrolling as a doctoral student at Columbia University in
1914 while also remaining a full-time teacher. As part of
her graduate work, she translated
Le PMlerinage de Charlemagne
(The Pilgrimage of Charlemagne), a medieval epic poem,
from Old French into modem French. However, because of
her race, the translation - which was published in Paris in
1925 - was never published in the U.S. despite the
professional recognition it garnered. In 1924, Cooper
transferred to the University of Paris, Sorbonne, in France
and, in 1925, successfully defended her doctoral
dissertation, which explored the attitudes of the French
toward slavery during the late-18th-century revolutions in
France and Haiti. She was only the fourth African American
woman in the U.S. to earn a Ph.D. and the first black woman
from any country to do so at the Sorbonne.
Cooper retired from teaching at Dunbar High School in
1930 but continued to give lectures, publish essays, and be
active in community affairs. During this time, she also
served as president of Frelinghuysen University, which
offered affordable liberal arts and professional courses for
working African Americans in Washington, DC. She
retired from her role as president in 1940 but continued to
serve Frelinghuysen, which was partly located in Cooper's
own home for several years. She privately published her


memoir,

The Third Step, around 1945.
Cooper died in her home at 201 T Street in Washington,
DC, on Feb. 27, 1964. She is buried next to her husband in
Raleigh, NC.

AWI announces additional unemployment

benefits to 250, 000 Floridians

-New law infuses estimated $418 million in recovery funds
into Florida's economy-


The Agency for Workforce Innova-
tion announced today that an estimated
250,000 unemployed Floridians will
be eligible for Extended Benefits as a
result of legislation signed by Gover-
nor Charlie Crist. Senate Bill 810,
sponsored by Senator Rudy Garcia (R-
Hialeah) and Representative Dave
Murzin (R-Pensacola), allows eligible
Floridians to receive additional tempo-
rary unemployment compensation
made available through the American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act of
2009.
. "In conjunction with this law taking
effect, we have launched an online ap-
plication for Extended Benefits at
www.floridajobs.org to begin process-
ing these critical payments to eligible
Floridians as quickly as possible," said
Agency Interim Director Cynthia
Lorenzo. 'This new law will provide
a financial lifeline to an estimated
250,000 Floridians who have exhaust-


training. "We are not just educating heads and hands," she
stated, "we are educating the men and women of a race."
Refusing to use inferior textbooks, Cooper sought to better
prepare students for admission to some of the nation's top
colleges and universities, including the Ivy League. Four
years later, she was removed from her position under
allegations of incompetence and misconduct, but more likely
because of her steadfast resistance to the racist notion of
African Americans' intellectual inferiority. Cooper then
taught languages at Lincoln University in Missouri until
1910, when she was invited to return to the M Street High


ed their unemployment benefits and
boost our state's economy with the in-
fusion of an estimated $418 million in
federal recovery funds through the end
of the year.,"
Payments will begin in early July
and will be made retroactive to Febru-
ary 22 for eligible claimants. The ini-
tial retroactive payments may be as
high as $5,100 for some claimants,
with additional payments of as much
as $300 a week for up to a total of 20
weeks.
"During these historic economic
times, Florida's families are hurting
and this legislation is a powerful tool
in helping them get back on their feet,"
said Senator Garcia. "By allowing for
individuals looking for work to contin-
ue collecting unemployment benefits,
it assures their.families are taken care
of as they look toward better times."


individuals must:

* Be totally or partially unem-
ployed.
* Exhaust all entitlement to regular
and Emergency Unemployment com-
pensation benefits prior to February
22, 2009, and the claim benefit year
ends after February 22, 2009 or
* Exhaust all entitlement to regular
and Emergency Unemployment com-
pensation after February 22, 2009.
* Not be eligible for unemployment
compensation benefits in any other

The importance of men's health


By Mary Ward
Research shows that, compared to
women, men are more likely to smoke and
drink alcohol and generally lead less
healthy lifestyles. In addition, men are
more likely to put off routine checkups
and also delay seeing a healthcare
provider for symptoms of a health
problem. Compared to working-aged
women, working-aged men are less likely
-to have a regular doctor and health
insurance.
Fortunately, many of the health
conditions and diseases that men face can
be prevented or treated - if found early. In
order to start taking better care of their
health, it is important for men to
understand their risk factors and how they
can improve their overall health. The most
common conditions affecting men - heart
disease, prostate, testicular, and colon
cancer, and osteoporosis later in life - have
important nutritional implications.
Heart Disease


-LAU


Risk factors for heart disease include:
* High blood cholesterol levels
.* High blood pressure
* Diabetes
* Obesity
* Cigarette smoking
* Physical inactivity
* Increasing age
* Family history of early onset of heart
disease
Dietary implications for reducing your
risk:
* Reduce the amounts of saturated fat
(found in animal products such as meat
and high-fat dairy products) and avoid all
trans fat (found in products such as
margarine, baked goods, and some snack
foods). Check the food labels to determine
the fat amounts in foods.
* Increase high fiber foods (whole
grains, fruits and vegetables, legumes,
nuts and seeds).
* Limit alcohol intake. Dietary
recommendations define moderate

drinking as no more than 2 drinks per day
for men.
* Increase intake of omega 3 fatty acids.
Research has shown that they are
associated with keeping blood vessels
healthy and keeping blood pressure down.
* Avoid tobacco use.
Cancer
Risk factors for cancer can include:
* Overweight/obesity
* High-fat diet
* Low fiber diet
* Excessive alcohol intake
* Physical inactivity
* Tobacco Use
Some dietary implications for reducing
your risk:
* Lycopene is a caretenoid found in
fruits and vegetables. It gives tomatoes its
red coloration. Research has shown that
lycopene can help with the prevention of
prostate cancer. The best sources of
lycopene are tomatoes, guava, rosehip,
watermelon, and pink grapefruit.
* Although research is still somewhat
inconclusive, selenium is thought to be a
mineral and antioxidant associated with
cancer prevention. Good sources of
selenium are nuts (especially Brazil nuts)
and fish (especially orange roughy and
tuna).
* While a high-fiber diet is important
for heart health, it is just as. important for
reducing the risk of colon cancer.
Osteoporosis
Many people think of osteoporosis as a
disease associated with women. However,
men are at risk too.
Risk factors for osteoporosis:
* Increasing age


* Family history
* Tobacco use
* Long-term use of corticosteroid use
* Excessive soda consumption
* Excessive alcohol consumption
* Low calcium intake
* Physical inactivity
Dietary implications for reducing your
risk:
* Men should get around 1000 mg of
calcium every day, especially in their
teens and twenties. The best sources "
include milk, yogurt, cheese, and ice
cream. Be sure to look for the low-fat and
fat-free dairy products for heart heath.
* Avoid heavy drinking. Alcohol
reduces bone formation and interferes
with your body's ability to absorb
calcium. For men, heavy drinking is one
of the most common risk factors for
osteoporosis.
* Avoid tobacco use.
Be sure to talk to your doctor if you
have any concerns about your risk factors
and before taking any vitamins or
minerals in supplement form. Also,
remember to always keep safety first.
Avoid unintentional injuries by being a
cautious driver, remember to always wear
your seat belt, and make your kids buckle
up too. If you are working with tools and
-machinery, always wear the proper
protective gear and make sure that tools
are in good shape before you use them.
If you have questions, please call the

Guardian ad Litem executive

director marks 6 months on the job


Theresa A. Flury,
Executive Director of the.
Statewide Guardian ad
Litem Program, marked her
first six months the end of
June 2009. Gov. Charlie
Crist appointed Flury to
.head the Program
December 22, 2008.


For more than 29 years,
the Florida Guardian ad
Litem Program has
represented the best
interests of abused and
neglected children in court
and the community. The
Program operates with
approximately 7,000
dedicated volunteers giving
approximately 27,000
abused and neglected
children across Florida a
voice.
Within just a few weeks
of taking the helm, Flury
faced many challenges
including not only a special
legislative session, but also
news from the legislature
of a possible 23% budget
cut during the regular
session.
"In a very short time, I
learned that we cannot do
this alone; we must rely on
the support of our
volunteers and the
community. Our
volunteers and the


community rallied together
and let the legislature know
how criticalour work is to
thousands of abused and
neglected children in
Florida. Their voices were
loud and clear and
thankfully the legislature
Jieard them. I am grateful
for the tremendous effort
our volunteers and
community made on the
Program's behalf."
Ultimately, the'legislature
voted on a 7.5% cut. The
cut was less drastic, but
still resulted in the loss of
57 positions statewide.
"We lost positions, but we
are determined the cuts
will not affect the number
of children we are
serving."
During the past six
months, Flury has served
on Florida's Children &
Youth Cabinet, Child
Abuse Prevention and

CARES farmers are not just



farmers, they're natural



resource managers


Life around the farm is about more than plowing the field and
planting crops these days. Technological advances to irrigation and
fertilization help take the guess work out of crop production. And
they help save the environment, too.
Just ask Timmy and Mickey Tuten, of Madison County. Their
farm was one of 26 this year recognized for environmental
stewardship as part of the County Alliance for Responsible
Environmental Stewardship (CARES) program. The Florida Farm
Bureau and the Suwannee River Partnership created CARES to
highlight efforts by farm owners to improve natural resource
management in the Suwannee River Basin.
The Tutens are committed to improving the environment by
implementing Best Management Practices (BMPs). BMPs help
conserve water and reduce nitrate pollution in groundwater that can
result from animal wastes and from fertilizers that aren't applied
properly.
Whether planting potatoes, tomatoes, onions or squash, the
Tutens use low-pressure center pivots and drip irrigation. The
systems not only help conserve water but are also cost-effective for
the farmer.
Joel Love, of the Suwannee River Partnership, said low-pressure
irrigation gives a more efficient, uniform application of water.
"There are less evaporative losses because you don't get the mist
as with a high-pressure system," Love said, adding some of the new'
low-pressure nozzles simulate rainfall.
Drip irrigation can also be used to apply fertilizer. It spoon feeds
the crop near the root and applies just the right amount of water and
fertilizer needed. This ensures that nitrogen from fertilizers is
efficiently used by the plant so little excess will be left to enter the
groundwater.
"I love drip irrigation because I'm targeting where I want to
water," said Timmy Tuten. "You save on fertilizer and you save on
water."
To gauge whether their crops are getting the right amount of
water, the Tutens can hook up a laptop to a soil moisture probe that
reads moisture levels for certain areas of the field. They also use
portable devices to test moisture levels anywhere on the farm.
Love said applying the right amount of water is key. Over
watering can wash fertilizers away and result in nitrate pollution to
groundwater. But not applying enough water can result in crops not
utilizing fertilizers that have been applied. Eventually those
fertilizers will also get washed into the aquifer.
The Tutens want to ensure visitors who come to their farm to pick
produce that they care about the crop and the land in which it was
grown.
"I see people face to face every day," said Timmy Tuten. "When
they ride up and you got a pretty crop, it sells itself. Participating in
the CARES program, I want people to know that I care. That I care
about them and that I'm conscientious in being a good steward of the
land."
The Coggins family of Coggins Farms, in Hamilton County, feels
the same way. Managing natural resources is just as important to
them as tending crops. That's why, theirs, too, was designated this
year as a CARES farm. "
A worker manning a machine
that fertilizes crops can be seen
driving through rows of peas at
Coggins Farms. But it is not just
any sprayer. It's fitted with GPS "
equipment, which determines
'which crops have already been
fertilized and which ones have
been skipped over.
"It maps the field and if you
overlap, it cuts the nozzles off,"
said Mike Coggins. "That's a big .
savings." ,
Not only is it a savings to the '
farmer, it also saves our .
waterways and the aquifer.
Love said the more fertilizer
that's put out at one time, the
greater the risk a heavy rain will -
come and wash it into
groundwater.
Workers at Coggins Farms also
field test for nitrate concentration.
All it takes is just clipping some of
the plants' leaves and sending
them off to a lab. Aftef the nitrate
levels are read, workers know
whether they need to apply more
fertilizer or less.
"We get tissue samples each
week and then we prescribe that
week what we're going to put out
the next week," said Gerald
Coggins. Joel Love, of the Suwannee

and Howard Mobley, Suwannee.
Since the Suwannee River Partnership
began in 1999, 99 percent of poultry
farmers, 90 percent of dairies and 70
percent of crop farmers have agreed to
adopt BMPs for fertilization, irrigation and
waste utilization practices. Partnership
members, which include various agencies,
residents, farmers, scientists, educators and
businesses come together to protect the
natural resources in the Suwannee River
Basin.
Love said managing natural resources is


a balancing act. You don't want to over
water or under water and you don't want to
over fertilize.
Striking that balance can be challenging.
But some CARES farmers have received
between 25-85 percent cost share from
state and federal agricultural agencies for
technology and equipment needed to
implement BMPs.
Love said the CARES program benefits
both the Partnership and the farmer.
"BMPs are economical and they help
save the environment,.' he said.

program, call the Suwannee River
Partnership at 386-362-0431. You may also

UF college receives public

health accreditation


The University of
Florida College of Public
Health and Health
Professions has been
awarded five-year
accreditation as a school of
public health by the
Council on Education for
Public Health, an
independent agency
recognized by the U.S.
Department of Education.
The college joins only 40
other U.S. universities that
have received accreditation
in public health at the
collegellevel.
"Our college has
developed a unique
educational model that.
integrates public health and
health professions
disciplines, two areas that
have traditionally operated
independently of each
other," said Michael G.
Perri, Ph.D., interim dean
of the college. "By
combining the public
health focus on populations
and prevention with the
individual treatment
perspective of the health
professions, we have
created important synergies
in education, research and
service. Our ultimate goal
is improve people's lives
by promoting healthy
lifestyles and addressing
critical issues, such as the
health needs of a growing
population of older adults
and the prevention and
control of outbreaks of
infectious diseases."
The dual and
complementary missions
of the College of Public
Health and Health
Professions are critical to -
the future of UF's entire
health-care enterprise, said
David S. Guzick, M.D.,
Ph.D., senior vice
president for health affairs
and president of the
UF&Shands Health
System.
"Research in the college
- epidemiologic,
biostatistical, behavioral
and health services - is
especially pertinent to the
national focus on
improving health-care


access and quality in a
cost-effective manner, and
the training of health
professionals in key areas
of need promotes high-
quality care at Shands and
at other health-care
facilities in the state,"
Guzick said.
"Accreditation by the
national. certifying body
gives well-deserved
recognition to Dean Perri
and his faculty for the
excellence of their
college."
To develop a new public
health enterprise, the
college established
departments of
epidemiology and
biostatistics; environmental
and global health; and
behavioral science and
community health. The
College of Public Health
and Health Professions
also added two Ph.D.
programs, one in
epidemiology in
conjunction with the UP
College of Medicine and
the other in biostatistics.
The college expanded the
Master of Public Health
degree and added a
distance-learning
certificate program in
public health, and an
online MPH degree is in
the works. These programs
complement the college's
existing nationally
recognized academic
programs, including Ph.D.
degree programs in clinical
and health psychology,'
health services research
and rehabilitation science;
professional.doctoral
programs in audiology and
physical therapy; master's
degrees in health
administration,
occupational therapy and
rehabilitation counseling;
and a bachelor's degree ire'U(
health science. ,
The College of Public
Health and Health
Professions has received
$15.6 million in research
funding over the past year
with specific studies.
focused on disability and
rehabilitation; the.


prevention of chronic
health problems, such as
obesity; aging; health
disparities; and the
identification and control
of emerging diseases and
environmental threats. The
college has developed
strong partnerships with
the other UF colleges and
with UF institutes and
centers, including the
Emerging Pathogens
Institute, the Institute on
Aging, the McKnight
Brain Institute and the
Center for Latin American
Studies, Perri said. Several
college faculty members
are also collaborating with
researchers from the
Department of Veterans
Affairs Medical Center to
address the special health
needs of the veteran
population.
