 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.

State governing body
reverses decision to
reduce number of games
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

By a vote of 15-0, the Florida High School
Athletic Association Board of Directors voted
Wednesday to rescind a decision made in April to
reduce the number of games played in most sports.
The FHSAA voted in April to reduce the number
of varsity sports games by 20 percent and all
subvarsity games by 40 percent to help alleviate the
financial crisis facing school districts.
:. Wednesday's reversal followed a lawsuit filed
againstthe FHSAA by the Florida's Parents for
Athletic Equity, claiming the reduction was in
violation of Title IX, the federal law that forbids
against sex.discrimination in school sports.
Some were;concerned that programs like football
and cheerleading were not cut. Officials at the time
said that was because relatively few football games

Ethics Commission OKs

perimeter road survey
No conflict of interest, says panel
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

The Florida Commission on Ethics has ruled there
is no conflict of interest if the chairman of the
Suwannee County Development Authority also acts
as the surveyor to determine rights-of-way for the
perimeter road project.
Commissioners asked County Attorney Hal Airth
at last Tuesday's county commission meeting to get
an opinion from the Ethics Commission because Tim
Alcorn, who is the chairman of the 'development
authority, will prepare the survey for the design firm
who will design the project. Alcorn is a surveyor
with Sherman Frier and Associates.
"By their opinion there was no conflict,"
Commission Chairdian Jesse Caruthers said Tuesday.
The ethics panel in its opinion cited a previous

EXTENSION UP ATE



Pay more than



the minimum
By Cathy Rogers . f Sj ." '
UF/IFAS Suwannee County V "'
Extension ' V",

Credit cards can be valuable -
tools in helping us manage our
money. They allow us to use
goods and services that we can f.
pay for at a later time. This can
help us out in an emergency or
save us money if we can then
take advantage of temporary sale
prices. Credit cards can help us
keep track of our money by providing a list of
purchases on the monthly bill. They.keep us safer by
allowing us to carry less cash, provide a way to
purchase items online and to secure car rental and room
reservations.
Unfortunately for many people, rather than an
advantage, credit cards become weapons of fiscal
destruction. When people use them to make purchases
that they cannot afford they begin to accumulate debt
rather than wealth. When they make only the minimum
payments it takes years to pay off even a small balance
and will likely cost more in interest than the original
purchase. The item or service may be long gone before
the bill is. If the account is used again, the balance may
never be see a zero balance.


The Suwannee County
Historical Museum will be
hitting the streets with
History. The public is
invited to learn more about
the history of the
Suwannee County
Courthouse, its
construction,
establishment and
relationship with other
elements of Suwannee


County history.
.-This special program
e\ ent will take place on
Saturday, July 25 at 9 am
on the lawn of the
Suwannee County
Courthouse under the
large oak tree to the south
of the courthouse's inain
entrance The program
will be led b Mu.seum
association member, Eric


9291 97th Lane
U.S. Hwy 90 E.
Live Oak, FL 32060


Each month your credit card statement indicates a
minimum payment due. This is the smallest amount
you can pay each month and still remain in good
standing with the credit card issuer. You can and
should pay more than the minimum if your goal is to
get out of debt as quickly as possible.

Consider the example below:

Credit Card Payback
$1,000 Balance ($20 Minimum Payment)
Annual Interest Rate: 19 percent
Minimum Monthly Payment: 2 percent 4 perc
Payoff Time: 8.25 Years 5 Year
Total Paid: $1,987 $1,467


As you can see, the actual cost of the $1,000 purchase
is nearly two times the original price when you pay on
the loan at a 2 percent minimum payment. This assumes
that you are not charging anything else during that time.
It is especially important to remember this when you
are buying something on credit in order to get a better
price on it in the first place. For this reason it makes
sense to restrict your credit card purchases to "needs"
rather than "wants" and especially if the items
purchased are consumables like groceries and fast food.
Unless you pay your entire balance each month, use
cash for groceries and gas even though they may be
necessities. It would be a shame to pay for years on
groceries bought today.
If you have several credit cards, as most people do,
and have gotten into more credit card debt than you feel
comfortable with, here are some things you can do:
. Select the account with the highest rate of interest
and pay that one off first while still paying the
minimum on the others. When that one is paid off, use
the money that you were paying on that card to pay
down the card with the next highest rate of interest.

recently written a book on
the history of Suwannee

Continue in this manner until all cards are paid off. Do
not charge anything while you are doing this!
. Find money to pay extra on credit cards by cutting
back on "wants". Write down your daily purchases and
think about what you really need. Use the money you
are currently spending on "wants" to get out of debt. A
variation on this idea is to cut back on, say, the
number of times you eat out, and use the money
to pay extra on your debts. Some sacrifices now
will give you peace of mind when your debts are
paid off. This can be a valuable lesson for
children as well.
ent . Create or add-to an emergency savings
s account. Start out by depositing something,
anything to a savings account on a regular basis.
It helps if you never see it, so if you have the
option of direct deposit, use it. This is essential
because if you do not have an account for, emergencies,
when they occur, and they will, you will have to resort
to using your credit cards again. Some financial experts
advise funding the emergency savings account as a first
step, before paying down that high-interest credit card
due to the current threat of unemployment.
. Finally, if you are really serious about spending
money wisely, go to an all-cash system. Figure out how
much cash you will need for the week or pay-period
and . a4e it fit. Do not go back to the bank to draw out
more cash. This will probably force you and your
family to think about "wants" versus "needs."
According to CardFacts.com, in 2008 the average
American household with at least one credit card
carried a $10,700 balance. That's a lot of debt! Some
types of debt are necessary, for instance a home
mortgage or a car loan nearly always help build wealth
in the long run. Credit card debt rarely does. The
bottom line is: Use credit cards wisely and if you have
credit card debt stop charging and pay more than the
minimum until the debt is under control.
If you have further questions about credit card debt
or the new credit card regulations call Cathy Rogers at
Suwannee County Extension 386-362-2771.

Here are some things you can do to keep
your central AC unit in good running
M condition:
Keep It Clear: The big fan housing part of your AC unit
that is on the outside your house is called the
condenser and it's what actually cools a Freon liquid in
the coils of your air conditioner. The cooler the coils,
the cooler the air in your house should be. It's important
to keep the condenser clear of grass, bushes, leaves,
kid's toys and just about everything else so that the fan
can run as efficiently as possible. A good rule of thumb
is to make sure there is nothing blocking the vents or
around the unit for three feet or so in every direction.
And be careful to make sure that cut grass iSn't blowing
into the unit each time you mow your lawn. A

Protecting your skin and preventing skin cancer


By Mary Ward
The kids are out of school
and for many folks that
means vacations and fun in
the sun. We are so
fortunate to live along the
beautiful Suwannee
River and a short
driving distance from
both the Gulf and
Atlantic coasts.
Protecting your skin
should be one of your top priorities
whether you are swimming
at the beach or pool, fishing, mowing the
grass, or doing any outdoor activity:
Wearing sunscreen is as important for
farmers in the hay field as it is for beach-
goers. This year nearly one million
Americans will develop skin cancer.
Over 90 percent of these cancers will
appear on sun-exposed skin, usually on
the face, neck, ears, forearms, and hands.
What's more, every hour an American
dies from skin cancer.
What are the risk factors for skin
cancer? Risk factors for nonmelanoma
and melanoma skin cancers include:
* unprotected and/or excessive
exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation
* fair complexion (even people with
dark complexions can get sunburned


thoiigh)
* occupational exposures to coal tar,
Switch. creosote, arsenic compounds, or
radium.
' family history
Multiple or atypical moles
severe sunburns as a child
Can skin cancer be prevented?
The best ways to lower the risk of
non-melanoma skin cancer are to
a\ oid intense sunlight for long
periods of time and to practice
sun safety. You can continue to exercise
and enjoy the
outdoors while practicing sun safety at
the same time. Here are some ways you
can do this:
* Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4
p.m.
* Seek shade: Look for shade,
especially in the middle of the day when
the sun's rays are strongest. Practice the
shadow rule and teach it to children. If
your shadow is shorter than you, the
sun's rays are at their strongest.
* Slip on a shirt: Cover up with
protective clothing to guard as much
skin as possible when you are out in the
sun. Choose comfortable clothes made of
tightly woven fabrics that you cannot see
through when held up to a light.
* Slop on sunscreen: Use sunscreen

and lip balm with a sun protection factor
(SPF) of 15 or higher. Apply a generous
amount of sunscreen (about a palmful or
shot glass full) and reapply after
swimming, toweling dry, or perspiring.
Use sunscreen even on hazy or overcast
days.
* Slap on a hat: Cover your head with
a wide-brimmed hat, shading your face,
ears, and neck. If you choose a baseball
cap, remember to protect your ears and
neck with sunscreen.
* Wrap on sunglasses: Wear sunglasses
with 99% to 100% UV absorption to
provide optimal protection for the eyes
and the surrounding skin.
* Follow these practices to protect
your skin even on cloudy or overcast

days. UV rays travel through clouds.
* Avoid other sources of UV light.
Tanning beds and sun lamps are
dangerous because they can damage your
skin.
* Most of our sun exposure - between
60 percent and 80 percent - happens
before we turnl8 years of age. That's
because children spend more time
outdoors than most adults, especially in
the summer. Research has shown that
two or more blistering sunburns as a
child or teen increase the risk of
developing skin cancer later in life. It is
very important, therefore, to protect
babies and children from sunburn. Ask

OPINION

On asteroids and

Preparation H
By Dwain Walden
Lately there have been several pro-
grams on the Discovery and History
channels about asteroids that once hit
the earth, knocking large holes in the
planet and possibly killing dinosaurs and
other creatures. And now there's a movie
on TV in a two-part sequence that has a
similar theme. So we must wonder if it
can happen again?
Scientists say that yes, it could happen again. The big dif-
ference is that this time, we can see it coming. So is that a
plus or a minus? Given a forewarning, would the panic of
everyone leaving Atlanta, trying to get to Ludowici, cause
more destruction? That's assuming, of course, that the aster-
oid chose Atlanta rather than Ludowici.
In one movie we sent out a space crew, and they blew up
the asteroid. Can we do that in real life?
Now I don't go to bed at night worrying about a big rock
hitting us. I don't even go to bed woirying about that midget
in North Korea - the one with the porcupine hairdo - hitting
us with a nuclear device. I do go to bed sometimes worry-
ing about my 401K (now a 201K). I guess what I should say
is that my life is divided into "big rocks" and "little rocks."
Remember, it was a little rock that killed Goliath. So at
night, I tend to lose sleep over the little rocks. For the big
rocks, I wait and talk about them at the breakfast club.
And on this morning the premier question was: "What if
the dinosaurs had not been wiped out?"
Can you imagine the size of fences that would be required
on our interstates if these creatures were still roaming the
woods?"
Then came another question: "Was it God's plan that the
dinosaurs be destroyed so that mankind could fill the earth
without getting stepped on? Or, was it coincidence?"
Then there was a followup question: "Why weren't di-
nosaurs mentioned in the Old Testament?"
These kinds of questions get really deep and wide, and
sometimes I will change the subject to more manageable is-
sues like, "Would we romance war much less if we all real-
ized that the real thing doesn't come with a soundtrack like
in the movies?" '"
Or maybe, "Why do all of us who are sitting around this
table pick up a spoon and stir black coffee?" I've noticed
that it doesn't get blacker or lighter when we stir it.
Back to the asteroids.
Perhaps most of us tend to think of an asteroid as being
like a small planet that might collide with the earth. But ac-
tually, a rock the size of a Walmart ramming us at such high
speed would cause untold devastation via tidal waves and
shock waves.
And what would it wipe out? With tongue'n cheek, I
would say double knit leisure suits, but fortunately they
have already become extinct, except at George Jones con-
certs.
Now I think it's feasible that we might be able to intercept
a football field-sized asteroid and destroy it with one of our
warheads. And I'm wondering if we actually have a plan in
place to do that. If not, I think preparations should begin or
some of our other worries could become moot points. And
given the name "asteroid," perhaps we should call our plan-
ning effort, "Preparation H."

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 hotline never closes and is your way
to let it out. You can let everyone know how you feel --
as long as you express yourself in a respectful way.
Note: In written entries to Rant and Rave, errors in
spelling, grammar or punctuation are those of the au-
thors.

Live Oak and Suwannee County are missing out on
a perfect opportunity. From Tallahassee to Jacksonville
there are no restaurants other than fast food at any I-10
exit where people can stop and eat. If Suwannee were
to go wet and attempt to attract restaurants such as Ap-
plebee's, Red Lobster, Ruby Tuesday's, etc., people
would stop to eat, buy gas and shop at Wal-Mart. This
would create a broader property tax base, employ more
people, collect more fuel and sales tax, and create a
more business friendly community that would attract
more high salaried jobs to the area. How is this a los-
ing situation? The only people that lose are those that
do not want to give up the strangle hold that they have
had on this county for decades. Change is coming,
TICK-TOCK.

STo the person who is mad because its cost you more
to smoke cancer sticks you said people don't get killed
from smoking are you that stupid more people die
from cancer then from drinking alcohol. get your facts
in order

If our commissioners refuse to listen, it will take a
costly special election to decide the alcohol issue, but
then they can't interfere any more. This is not a couple
minimum wage jobs. It is tax revenue instead of ham-
mering homeowners again. It is building permits, con-
struction jobs & materials in our county, utility cus-
tomers etc. The managers & operators of these estab-
lishments earn well over minimum wage & young
people need the jobs badly. Look at the whole picture
instead of this tunnel vision. A improved economy
helps reduce crime and improve the quality of life
overall.
g .,
Yes I want to Rant and Rave about the people riding
through the subdivisions. I would just like to put in
there if she would or he would like to buy a flag and
put on my front door, they are sure more than welcome
to do so. Thank you and have a good day.

I'm calling in response to the person who wrote that
they were disappointed that the pastor of a local
church ran down President Obama. It is not the re-
sponsibility of the pastor to agree with a president of
the United States. It is his responsibility to tell the con-
gregation when a leader of our country is not doing
God's will..That is their job. Not to approve or disap-
prove of President Obama's beliefs.

I'm calling in response to the person who was disap-
pointed that President Obama was put down in front of
a congregation by the pastor. He said that I think that
in church we should certainly show respect to the
heads of our country. It is not the pastor's responsibili-
ty to show respect to the heads of our county. As a
church, it is our responsibility to show respect to our
heavenly father. He is the one we will answer to, not
president Obama. Thank you very much.

Yes, this is just a notice to residents of Suwannee
County. I'm looking at the Suwannee Democrat and I
see where like 10,000 of the homeowners out of
10,406 of the homesteaded property are gonna get
their taxes raised. And I'd just like to say, we need peo-
ple with more vision who can get us some jobs, indus-
,try, and wake up that Suwannee County is dying for
lack of place for people to go to work. There's an old
saying, the only thing that's for certain is death, taxes
and change. Well the winds of change are blowing and
the commissioners should take note. People are taxed
to death in Suwannee County, they can't get a job, they
have to go a county or two counties away just to work.
We need more vision with our commissioners. I just
wanted to express that, I appreciate the opportunity.

Yes, I was reading the rant and rave about cigarette
prices. And you know, they raised cigarette prices and
it was to go to children's cancer relief from what I un-
derstand. Now, I've been a smoker for 15 years, but I
would not trade what they did for anything. Okay, it
helps children. In your paper it says cigarettes don't
kill people as much as drinking does. Everyday there's
a cancer patient that dies from cigarette smoke,
whether it be second hand or first hand smoking. So


Rave


yes it does, indeed it kills more. So I suggest that the
person that raved before look up the statistics and see
that that's actually true that cigarettes do. That irritates
me because I'm choosing to quit smoking. And yes,
partly because I can't afford it, partly because it kills
people everyday. That kind of ignorance bothers me.
Sm Is
Congratulations to the Suwannee County Commis-
sioners for not renewing the position of former Code
Enforcement official Tim Alcor. If one isn't going to
follow the rules himself, he should not be in a position
to oversee compliance with code regulations. Thanks
to the majority of Commissioners for ensuring that no
one is above the law. I'm not exactly sure what Com-
missioners Maxwell and Udell were thinking.

I would like to say a big thank you to Suwannee
County Animal Control. Last week my dog went miss-
ing for three days, they actually found him and rescued
him and took him back to the shelter and contacted
me. They united a very happy family with their dog
that we were so thankful for. And I just think a lot of
people need to realize what a great job Suwannee
County Animal Control is doing and how much they
are needed in our county and the good that they are
providing to d lot of animals in our county. Thanks to
Suwannee County Animal Control for all you did for
us and all you do for all the animals and people in
Suwannee County.
ME l
I agree with the person who wrote in about the
prices of cigarette taxing. I much rather would be sit-
ting by somebody smoking than meeting somebody
head-on who has drank all night. Let's place the tax on
alcohol, maybe then we won't have as many accidents
where innocent people are killed by drunk drivers.
Thank you.

With property taxes going up, maybe it is time to
consider legalizing liquor sales since it is OK to sell
beer here. Keep more business in Suwannee County
and increase revenue and jobs. And, it will make
Suwannee County more appealing to prospective new
businesses. Nothing will really change except people
who want alcohol will not have to take their business
out of county. Put more focus on stopping manufac-
ture of illegal drugs.
MEN
No wonder we don't attract new business in Suwan-
nee County. Not only do citizens oppose the sale of
liquor, they resent being required to wear seat belts,
even though the Democrat reports fatal and near fatal
accidents every week and none seem to be wearing
their seatbelts. Time for an attitude change, Suwannee
County.

Hatch seeks rezoning



for 100-acre subdivision


Town Council tables
matter until July 30

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

At the town hearing Tuesday at
Town Hall, citizens were invited to
hear Randy Hatch's request for town
council to rezone his property for
residential use. Council members
Ken Saunders, Charlie Daniel,
Shirley Clark, Alice Childress and
Matt burns were present. Mayor Don
Owens and Attorney, Kevin Daly
were also at the meeting.
Hatch asked permission from the
town to install a subdivision of
homes on 100 acres on the south side
of SR 247 across from the elemen-
tary school. Randy Hatch also re-
quested the town allow newly an-
nexed property to be categorized
whatever the owner wishes, instead
of automatically being categorized as


agricultural, as is the case now.
Hatch said he believes doing this
would encourage commercial and
residential growth inside city limits.
"If you ever want Branford to
grow, land needs to be able to come
in as whatever, instead of being re-
stricted to one zone," said Hatch.
"You need to decide where you
want Branford to grow," Tony Ar-
rant, Branford's town planner, told
town council and the public. "How-
ever, no matter what we decide, it's
going be an up hill battle."
"The owner needs to have an op-
tion, needs to have a choice," added
Hatch.
Arrant and attorney Kevin Ifily
both explained to town council and
the public that it would be impossi-
ble for Branford's current sewage
plant to support the number of
homes Hatch is proposing for his
land. "The capacity is the only is-
sue," said Daly. "But we'll be paying
for the expansion if we're not care-

Branford's Farmer's Market is in its last weeks, so hurry
and cash in all your coupons before it's too late. The
Farmer's Market is located where CR 129 and Governor


ful."
"It's all very convoluted," said Ar-
rant.
The council decided to schedule
another hearing for July 30, giving
them more time to investigate this is-
sue and to determine whether or not
the town can afford this expansion.
However, Town Clerk Donna
Hardin says she does not believe the
town will be able to expand the plant
any time soon.
Rick Wolford was also present and
spoke on the behalf of Betty
Howard. He wanted to know why
the town had decided to rezone her
land commercial and if this would
affect her trailer park business. Ar-
rant explained that her property is
grandfathered in and as long as it
does not go out of business, she
should not be affected. However,
town council could not say for sure
that she would not be affected long
term, and she requested her land not
be rezoned.

Clark sworn


in as Town


Council


president

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

Several issues were discussed and important up-
dates were given Tuesday night at Branford's town
council meeting. The council voted and Shirley
Clark was once again sworn in as council presi-
dent. Charlie Daniel was elected vice-president and
sworn in. Resolution 2009-3, an identity theft and
prevention program for town workers, was ap-
proved and adopted by council. A proclamation for
a public works week was given and adopted, which
will take place next week.
John Creel, representing The Followers of Christ
in Lake City, asked permission from council to
have a revival at Hatch Park. Council approved the
revival upon proof of liability insurance.
Kevin Hardin is currently checking quotes for
the new racquetball courts and should have final
estimates by next month's meeting.
Town Clerk Donna Hardin gave an update on
current projects going on in the town. "All grants
are in full swing right now," she said. According to
Hardin, the paving of No Name Road began July
15, the improvements to the sewer plant have al-
ready begun and the boat ramp at Ivey Park is cur-
rently under construction.
Town Council also approved the renovation of
the Shrine Club and the Community Center.
County Commissioner Wesley Wainwright was
present and gave an update on a new health depart-
ment in the works for Branford. Wainwright said he
is currently looking for a location for the health de-
partment within the town's budget.


Duck race raises funds for scholarships

1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners announced


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

According to the Rotary Club of
Branford, the annual Fourth of July
Branford Rotary Duck Race was "a
stunning success" this year.
Every year the Branford Rotary Club
conducts the Duck Race as a primary
source of funding for its annual Schol-
arship awards. This year the Rotary
club had projected a significant short-


fall in the vitally needed Scholarship
fund due to the depressed economy.
However, thanks to the fantastic gen-
erosity of Rotary sponsors and the en-
tire Town of Branford and guests, the
Duck race was an incredible success,
with ticket sales surpassing previous
years.
At 2 p.m., when the six barrels full
of rubber ducks were emptied from the
Suwannee River Bridge into the cur-
rents of the river, "thousands were on

applied to dry skin 15-30
minutes BEFORE going
outdoors. When using
sunscreen, be sure to
apply it to all exposed
areas and pay particular
.attention to the face, ears,
hands and arms. Coat the
skin liberally and rub it in
thoroughly - most people
apply only 25-50 percent
of the .
recommended amount of
sunscreen. One ounce,
enough to fill a shot glass,
is considered the amount
needed to cover the
exposed areas of the body
properly. Don't forget that
lips get sunburned too, so
apply a lip balm that
contains sunscreen with an
SPF of 15 or higher.
Sunscreens should be
re-applied at least every
two hours or after
swimming or perspiring
heavily. Even so-called
"water-resistant"
sunscreens may lose their
effectiveness after 40
minutes in the water.
Sunscreens rub off as well

sunscreen for continued
protection. Also, while
there are a number of
combination cosmetic
products, such as
moisturizers that contain
sunscreen, it is important
to remember that these
products also need to be
reapplied to achieve
continued UV protection.
There are so many types
of sunscreen that selecting
the right one can be quite
confusing. Sunscreens are
available in many forms
including ointments,
creams, gels, lotions,
sprays and wax sticks. The
type of sunscreen you
choose is a matter of
personal choice. Creams,
are best for individuals
with dry skin, but gels are
preferable in hairy areas,
such as the scalp or male
chest. Sticks are good
around the eyes. Creams
typically yield a thicker
application than lotions
and are best for the face.
There also are sunscreens
made for specific
purposes, such as sensitive
skin and for use on babies.
SPF stands for Sun
Protection Factor.
Sunscreens are rated or
classified by the strength
of their SPF. The SPF

can range from as low as
2 to greater than 50. These
numbers refer to the
product's ability to deflect
the sun's burning rays.
Ideally, sunscreens
should be water-resistant,
so they cannot be easily
removed by sweating or
swimming, and should
have an SPF of 15 or
higher that provides
broad-spectrum coverage
against both UVA and
UVB light. Unless
indicated by an expiration
date, the FDA requires'
that all sunscreens be
stable and at their
original strength for at
least three years.
The sunscreen SPF
rating is calculated by
comparing the amount of
time needed to produce
sunburn on sunscreen-
protected skin to the
amount of time needed to
cause sunburn on
unprotected skin. For
example, if a sunscreen is
rated SPF 2 and a person
who would normally turn
red after ten minutes of
exposure in the . sun
uses it; it would take
twenty minutes of
exposure for the skin to
turn red. A sunscreen with
an SPF of 15 would allow
that person to multiply
that initial burning time
by 15, which means it
would take 15 times
longer to burn, or 150
minutes. Even with this


protection, sunscreen
breaks down and rubs off
with normal wear, so it
needs to be reapplied at
least every two hours.
There is no safe way to
tan. A tan is the skin's
response to injury caused
by UV exposure. Tanniing
occurs when ultraviolet
rays penetrate the
epidermis, the skin's outer
layer, causing the
production of melanin as a
response to the injury.
Chronic exposure to
ultraviolet light, both
natural and artificial,
results in a change in the
skin's texture, causing
wrinkling and age spots.
Thus, tanning to improve
appearance is ultimately
self-defeating. Every time
you tan, you damage your
skin and this damage
accumulates over time.
This accumulated
damage, in addition to
accelerating the aging
process, also increases
your risk for all types of
skin cancer.
CHECK YOUR
BIRTHDAY SUIT ON
YOUR BIRTHDAY. If
you notice anything
changing, growing or
bleeding on your skin, see
a dermatologist. Skin
cancer is very treatable
when caught early.

Locals win big in state bowling tourney

Sean Pruitt and Donald Music take,
handicap doubles in Hernando County


By CHRIS BERNHARDT JR.
Hernando Today

With the 75th annual Florida State
Bowling Association Championship
Tournament in the rearview mirror,
one thing seems certain: it won't be
forgotten.
Not after a staggering amount of
honor scores that shattered the state
record book. That included 49 300
games, 20 800 series (five 830s), 25
299s, 25 290s, five 298s, three 297s,
two 296s, three 279s and two 278s.
Now the hope,is those numbers will


stick in the memories of both the state
bowlers and governing body when
Hernando County could have another
crack at playing host to this event in a
few years.
"Hopefully the bowlers remember
they scored well," Spring Hill Lanes
co-owner Carlos Martins said. "It will
be easier to get the tournament be-
cause of that."
For the past 11 weekends, Spring
Hill Lanes and Mariner Lanes have
opened their doors to competitors
from around the state.
It was at Spring Hill, which hosted


the doubles and singles, where
the overwhelming majority of the
honor scores were bowled.
In June, however, Mariner, which
held the team event, made up a little
ground. On June 20 alone, five people
shot 300s there and another did it the
following day.
In the end, 13 of the 300s, five of
the 800s, four 299s, seven 290s and
one 298 were rolled at Mariner.
"I wish it could keep going,"
Mariner owner Rafael Hernandez

SPORTS COMMENTARY

It's almost time


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels i


Fantasy
football, never
mind real
football, is
around the
corner. Literally
millions of people play fantasy
football around the world.
There are many versions and
many different price levels.
There are free leagues and
thousand dollar high roller
leagues. You can play for
prizes or thousands of dollars.
The format's the same, the
variations are endless. Many
of us think this is why the
Internet was created. If you
don't have access to the net it
is difficult to play. Much to my
surprise there are people,
learned people, conservatives
and liberals who want to play
together but don't know how.
All right already, tell us how.
You have to know the
players in the NFL. No not all
of them, just the good ones.
Some leagues require
individual defensive players
but that's the exception.
Offense, baby, that's where it's
at. You will have a team
comprised of quarterbacks,


running backs, wide receivers,
tight ends, kickers and usually
a defense. You will be awarded
points on the basis of your
players' performances. All
leagues reward yards and
touchdowns in some manner.
The number of players and
types of rewards vary. You may
enter a league online that
allows you to pick whoever
you want, or a league that has a
draft. I can tell you from
personal experience the draft is
a lot of fun.
If you can enter a league
with friends and family that's
even better. Now everyone will
know just how football smart
you are or'are not. You can
even start your own league. I
have. A normal money league
costs between $25 and $100.
The prize money is usually
split at the end of the playoffs.
Usually a league doesn't have
more then 10 teams to assure
the quality of players. Even the
NFL gets a little thin. Can you
name 10 tight ends? If you
can't, you can still play
provided you can read. There
are bunches of magazines and
Web sites that will be happy to
tell you how everybody will do
next year. Most of these guys

This Saturday night at
Columbia Motorsports
Park will be the second of
three Open Wheel Modi-
fied 50 races plus a Pure
Stock 50, V-8 Bombers and
Hornets. The 50 lap Modi-
fied race will pay $2,000 to
win with 20 cars.
On June 20, it was RQb-
bie Cooper who topped the
first Modified 50. Cooper
had already won the night
before at Orlando Speed-
World Modified 50 and
was on a roll that weekend.
Following Cooper across
the checkered was Jason
Garver, previous Modified
Champion at Columbia
Motorsports Park, Wayne
"Rocketman" Jefferson,
Jerry Symons and Alan
Bruns. These drivers and
more are expected this Sat-
urday.
The Pure Stocks were
scheduled to run a 50 lap-
per back on June 6 but
were also rained out as was
the Modified 50 that night.
But this Saturday they are
ready to rumble and rum-
ble they will.
Racing starts at 7:30
p.m. Grandstands open at
6 p.m. For more informa-
tion on this Saturday
night's events, please call

Locals win big in state bowling tourney


Continued From Page 1B

said.
"It was a great experi-
ence. We never expected
it to be this good. I had a
wonderful time. Every-
thing went wonderful.
"As far as income, it
was great. You always ex-
pect a little more, but
I can't complain. It was
pretty much what they
predicted. I wish it kept
going for the entire year.
But hey, maybe we get the
tournament again in the


future."
Unfortunately for local
bowlers, the home-lane
advantage didn't pan out.
Although results are still
technically unofficial, no
teams or individuals from
Hernando County made a
serious run at winning any
events, or the "all events"
category for that matter.
Holly Electric out of
Lulu took the team handi-
cap crown at 3,683,
while Melbourne Crew
from Melbourne won the
scratch team title (3.591).


Live Oak's Sean Pruitt
and Donald Music took
handicap doubles
(1,629), and Melbourne's
Brendan McGrath and
John Donovan Jr. captured
scratch doubles (1,587).
In singles, A.J. Bateman
from Avon Park came in
first in the handicap divi-
sion at 858, while Jerry
Lake of Fort Myers
earned first place in
scratch singles with his
83.3 series.
Michael LaMere from
Zolfo Springs posted a


2,393 for the top score in '
handicap all events. Long-
wood's George ."Dustin"
Hand shot 2,361 for the
best scratch all events set.
Though he eventually
got beat out by Hand,
Donovan had perhaps the
most impressive perfor-
mance of the tournament
on May 2 when he shot
836 in doubles, featuring a
pair of 300s.
He followed with an
825 in team the next day,
making him the only par-
ticipant to record multiple
300s and 800s. Randy
Jacques of Daytona edged
him for high series with
an 837 on the second-to-
last weekend.
Not all the remaining
bowlers in the tournament


will go empty handed,
though, as each event end-
ed up cashing out to more
than 150 places.
The lows to cash were:
3,402 for team handicap,
3,377 for team scratch,
1,421 for handicap dou-
bles, 1,425 for scratch
doubles, 723 for handicap
singles, 721 for scratch
singles, 2,121 for handi-
cap all events and 2,106
for scratch all events.
As for the running of
the tournament, Martins
.pointed'out the volunteer
work of many of the coun-
ty's bowlers, even youth
bowlers who lent a hand.
"The tournament could-
n't have gone any
smoother," Martins said.
"No breakdowns, no com-


plications. It ran as
smoothly as it could run.
A compliment goes out to
our mechanic staff and all
the cleanliness of our
house. I think everything
went really well. I was
pleased with how it went."
Hernando County re-
ceived high marks from
the state association, as
well.
"It went great," FSBA
Manager Bob Peters Sr.
said. "I don't have any
complaints. The staff, the
people worked with us
well."

If you don't know who
to pick there will be some
wise guy there to help you.
It's usually the same guy
who tells you ..."that chili
isn't really that hot." If you
are caught in a bind just
say Johnson, you can't go
wrong: Andre, Chad,
Calvin, Chris, Larry and
Rudi - one of them will be
available. Don't let them
talk you into Archie
Manning, he's the one
that's retired. Go with
Peyton or Eli. If you don't


get it right at draft time it's
not the end of the season,
unless you're the guy that
picked Tom Brady last
year. There are always
waivers and trades and the
playoffs.
Fantasy football sites can
be found on CBS Sports,
CDM Sports, ESPN and by
just Googling fantasy
football. If you would like
to know more or get some


guidance stop by the Sports
Connection. I can't be any
worse then the guys in the
magazines and actually
have had a few winners.
It's never too early to start
and never too late to learn.
And as I always say there
is no sense in us both being
broke. Look forward to
beating you, I mean seeing
you. Pro season starts
September 10.

The Problem ofAkrasia

The term "akrasia" is a Greek term meaning
"lacking command over oneself." It is sometimes
used in the sense of going against one's
better judgement, or the all-too-common
occurrence of knowing the right thing to do
but otherwise failing to do it. Socrates was
famous for claiming that the very concept
is illogical; that is, that no one knowingly .
does wrong. For Socrates, wrongdoing was
always a result of ignorance, i.e., not
knowing that one is actually harming
oneself by doing wrong. Aristotle took a
different approach to the problem of akrasia '
by making it a conflict with our opinions
rather than our knowledge, as it was for
Socrates. But perhaps the problem is more
complicated than this. Sometimes we act
against our better judgement because our
own goals are unclear. Other times we do so
simply because our desires are too strong to
resist. For example, smokers may know that it is
in their best interest to quit, and truly want to
quit, yet the craving for tobacco gets the better
of them. Finally, there may be internal conflicts
that relate to our inherent character. Often we
have competing aims or desires, and one element
of our character, perhaps not one of the better
aspects of our personality, wins out over the
others, despite our knowledge that we should do
otherwise. Paul's solution to this problem is to ,
realize that our desires come from our bodies
while goodness and virtue stem from God's law.


I do not understand my own actions. For I
do not do what I want, but I do the very
thing I hate.

If I should ever grow



up before I die


By Rev. James L. Snyder

I was working on my to-do-list for
the upcoming week when I happened
to notice the date. I looked up from
my work and exclaimed to the Gra-
cious Mistress of the Parsonage, "Do
you know that this is the month of
July already?"
She looked at me and said, "What
month did you think it was?"
I did not want to tell her that I had
not been thinking at all, lately. That
certainly would have started a com-
pletely new line of conversation... or
rather monologue. I simply went
back to my to-do-list to bring it up-
to-date.
The month of July is famous for
many things. Of course, there is the
Fourth of July celebration. You
would think that this would be a big
enough celebration for me to realize
that it is the month of July. Like
many holidays, they are often not
celebrated on the right date. Take
Presidents' Day for example. I never
know when that one takes place. Or
Washington's Birthday. It is never
the same each year.
Also, in the month of July many
picnic activities should alert me to
the intelligence that this is the month
of July. Of course, my intelligence
meter has been in a state of disrepair
for quite some time now. I probably
do not know what I am missing.
One date during the month of July
is one that I cannot forget without
serious consequence. The date I am
referring to is the birthday of the
young woman who said to me 37
years ago before witnesses, "I do."
That is none other than the one who
rules the Parsonage... my wife. Dur-
ing the month of July, she celebrates
her birthday. And, one of the chal-
lenges of the month is for me fo re-
member that it is her birthday and go
out and buy a present.
The thing I have often wondered,
at least to myself and never out loud,


is why, when it is somebody else's
birthday, I have to pay? Common
sense would say that whoever is cel-
ebrating the birthday is the one who
should foot the bill for the birthday
party and presents. After all, it is
their birthday, not mine. This way,
everybody could buy the presents
they really want and can afford.
More than once, I have suggested
something like this in our house and
have always been greeted with one
of those glares. My concern is by the
time I celebrate (meaning I am foot-
ing the bill) for all of the birthdays in
our house I will be absolutely broke.
When we first married, it was just
one present. Then little ones began
coming into our home necessitating
buying birthday presents. First one,
then two, then three, and I thought I
had reached the end of the birthday
present scenario. I had for several
years.
Then, with a regularity that was a
little overwhelming for me, these lit-
tle bundles of joy grew up and got
married. So with three children I
now have six birthday presents not
including my wife, which makes
seven. Let me be quite clear about
this, outside of the Bible, seven is
not the perfect number.
It was not long before this seven
began multiplying faster than I could
keep up. Grandchildren are wonder-
ful, but they do add to the birthday
present list.
The way the birthday present list
runs is like this. The grandmother re-
members the dates and picks out the
present while the grandfather pays. I
would like to have a serious conver-
sation with the person who drew up
these rules. I can safely assume it
was not a man.
The birthday list runs something
like this; three children, three spous-
es, and somewhere in the neighbor-
hood of eight grandchildren. And
they are conveniently stretched out
so that there is at least one birthday


for every calendar month in the year.
I am a little suspicious of this, but to
what court can I appeal?
Now, to make matters worse, as if
they could get any worse, on top of
all of this is my wife's birthday. If
my calculations are correct, this
makes for 15 birthday presents
throughout the year. I just would like
to throw in an interesting little tidbit;
the.older people get the more expen-
sive the birthday present.
This year I will spend a fortune on
my wife's birthday present.
Then there is another little day in
the month of July that has a little bit
of importance to me. It is my birth-
day. I know my birthday comes
every year but it has a way of sneak-
ing up on me and surprising me. I do
not feel a year older. I do not even
look a year older. Okay, maybe the
second one is not exactly true.
Of course, looks are not every-
thing. And all of us who do not have
"looks," are hoping this is true.
In celebrating my birthday this
year, I have established one primary
goal. I would like to grow up before
I die.
The apostle Paul accomplished
this in his life. "I have fought a good
fight, I have finished my course, I
have kept the faith: Henceforth there
is laid up for me a crown of right-
eousness, which the Lord, the right-
eous judge, shall give me at that, day:
and not to me only, but unto all them
also that love his appearing." (2 Tim-
othy 4:7-8 KJV).
Growing old is not hard, it is
growing up that is complicated.

The identity crisis


"But Mom, everyone else
is." What parent hasn't heard
this plea? In fact, according
to our teens, no other kid
they know even has a cur-
few, any restrictions, or par-
ents who are out to ruin their
life. As adults, we may
vaguely recall using this line
on our folks, and our parent's
standard response: "So, if
everyone else jumped off the
bridge, I guess you would
want to do that too." Case
closed; it was pointless to
continue the discussion.
Since we all have the de-
sire for a certain quality or a
unique talent to render us
valuable, it seems odd that
during the years those talents
and qualities could be dis-
covered and nurtured, we
fight hard to be like every-
one else. Why? The word
"identity" is defined as "the
set of behavioral or personal
characteristics by which an
individual is recognizable as
a member of a group." In
other words, our children, es-


pecially during the teen
years, are searching to find
out who they are and where
they belong; desperately
seeking to fit in with their
own generation.
The early generations of
God's children as a nation
struggled with the same
identity crisis. In 1 Samuel
8:5, the Bible records their
petition to the prophet
Samuel: " ... now appoint a
king to lead us, such as all
the other nations have." In
verses 10-18, Samuel gave
the people a host of reasons
why being like everyone else
was not a good thing, but ac-
'cording to verses 19-20: " ...
the people refused to listen
to Samuel 'No' they said. We
want a king over us. Then
we will be like all the other
nations, with a king to lead
us and to go out before us
and fight our battles."
Was their desire for a king
wrong? I don't believe so.
God indeed had a plan for Is-
rael to have a king; a man af-


ter his own heart. But that's a
later story. It was their mo-
tive that missed the mark.
According to Leviticus
20:26, God had called Israel
to be a holy nation, separate
from and unique among all
other people. In searching for
their identity by trying to be
like everyone else, they
missed the distinctive pur-
pose that was intended for
them.
As parents, part of our job
is to help our children under-
stand this concept. Too often
we yes to our kids because
we are tired of struggling
with them, or maybe we
don't want them to be left
out. Or, perhaps we have the
strength to say no, but we
don't finish our task by help-
ing them see the options they
can say yes to, leaving them
frustrated and angry. Our
children have not traveled
the road of life as we have
and they need our wisdom,
maturity and courage to
make good decisions today


and for
their future,
It is our re-
sponsibility
to encour- Hear

cial and
unique
identity, so that the reality of
being like "everyone else" is
made clear; because their
hearts matter.

Peace for


this world
By Derek Maul

My wife and I re-
turned from our epic
journey to Italy recently.
It's nice to be home, ,
but re-entry isn't always
an easy transition after a
three-week vacation.
We were both were
quite deliberate about not reading up on
news from home, not watching television
and staying off the computer. So in some re-
spects it feels as if Rebekah and I have been
out of town for something like a lifetime or
so. Not only is Europe far, far away and
across the ocean, but Italy felt like a com-
pletely different culture.
Different doesn't even to begin to describe
it. The rich interaction of history, lifestyle,
language, Mediterranean culture, amazing
topography and a whole host of fascinating
variables made for a sense of stepping
through the looking glass - like Alice, or
walking out through the back of the closet
and into Narnia - like the children in C. S.
Lewis's classic story.
Then, when we weren't off on the train to
Rome or Florence, our son Andrew played a
most helpful role as expert guide. He lives in
Pisa, and seeing this culture'through the
eyes of someone who has committed himself
to learn all he can, give all he can, share all
he can and experience all he can gave this
particular expedition the kind of twist you
simply can't get any other way.
So I have returned to Florida with new
eyes for the world. God did not place us into
our lives to simply get by. Instead we have
each been, commissioned to play a key role
in the redemption of a planet that is at once
both bigger than we imagine and more inti-
mate than pictures on a television screen
will everconvey.
That's the danger of a really great journey
abroad. Part of you never really makes it
home.
Peace. And I mean that.

State parks to waive entrance fees Sunday


Free enr encourages
tourism and outdoor
activity during Parks and.
Recreation Month
The Florida Department
of Environmental
Protection's (DEP) Florida
Park Service announced
daily entrance fees will be
waived at Florida's state
parks on Sunday, July 19,
in recognition of National
Parks and Recreation
Month.
"Florida's award-winning
state park system is one of
the best in the country,
providing high quality
recreation at an unmatched
value," said DEP Secretary
Michael W. Sole. "By
offering free entrance to
state parks on July 19, and
encouraging state park
visitation throughout
National Parks and
Recreation Month, we
hope to foster a deeper
appreciation of our state's
natural resources and the
recreational, historical and
cultural value parks
contribute to our great
state."
In addition to offering
free entrance on Sunday,
July 19, for National Parks
and Recreation Month, the
Florida Park Service will
also offer free entrance to


visitors with a library card
or with the donation of a
new or gently used family
friendly book on Friday,
September 11 through
Sunday, September 13, for
State Park Literacy Month
and on November 11 for
.Veteran's Day.
"We are pleased to offer
free admission into
Florida's state parks on
these three occasions to
encourage tourism and
outdoor activity," said DEP
Florida Park Service
Director Mike Bullock.
"The value of state parks is
much greater than often
realized, impacting healthy
lifestyles, educating
visitors about natural and
cultural resources, as well
as making an economic
impact of more than $1
billion to Florida's
communities."
Since 1985, the National
Recreation and Park
Association has designated
July as National Parks and
Recreation Month. This
year, the Florida Park
Service is offering a free
entrance day and
continuing its Family.
Friends. Fun. campaign by
encouraging children and
families to engage in
outdoor activity at one of


160 Florida state parks
throughout July.
Visitors can learn about
ways to celebrate National
Parks and Recreation
Month by viewing the 100
activities featured as part
of DEP's Rediscover
Florida - 100 Ways in 100
Days campaign. The
initiative encourages

many exciting and
affordable recreation
opportunities in their own
backyards. From the
traditional activities -
hiking, biking, fishing,
picnicking or camping, to
the unique - festivals,

Local Extension providing



space age technology


By Katherine Allen,
UF/IFAS Suwannee Coun-
tv Extension

The Jetson's cartoon was
a favorite of mine. I often
wished for my own Rosie
the Robot to automatically
clean my room or for the
machine that automatically
cleans and clothes you in
the morning so I could
sleep a little later. One
technology showcased on
the cartoon was a tele-
phone that showed the
caller in real time. I often
giggled when George's
boss caught George in his
pajamas and wondered if
we would ever see some-
thing like that in our life-
time.
Many years later, when
gas was over four dollars a
gallon, the University of
Florida purchased poly-
com system for every Ex-
tension office in the state
of Florida. I had never
heard of it, but once I saw
what it could do, I was
quickly reminded of the
Saturday morning cartoon
show. This system utilizes
the cable/internet lines to
transmit and receive data.
A camera transmits your
video picture to the other
person you are chatting
with. This amazing thing
had the ability to confer-
ence multiple callers at a
time, something I didn't re-
call George's doing. So,
now Suwannee County
Extension agents can meet
.and conduct training with
other counties or the uni-
versity without costly trav-
el and save time.
Suwannee County Ex-
tension is utilizing tech-
nology in other ways as
well. The first time I heard
someone ask if I was.
tweeting, I wondered if
they had a speech impedi-
ment. Little did I know
that our office would soon
implement the technology
to reach kids in our com-
munity who are accessing
blogs and Facebook. Brian
Estevez, our 4-H and
youth development exten-


sion agent has been instru-
mental in updating 4-H's
image. The kids are using
the technology. If we aren't
using the same methods,
even if we have great pro-
grams and services, we are
going to be considered
outdated and our youth
won't be taking advantage
of what we have to offer.
For example, Brian has
created and posted
YouTube videos of our
hambuger 4-H day camp.
We now have a 4-H blog!
We've had a Webpage for a
number of years, but now
it is being updated and
added to so that leaders,
parents and kids will use
it. Leaders are being sent
information monthly via
email. Now, you can join a
community of 4-H Face-
bookers.
As someone who has
multiple subject matter ar-
eas to keep up-to-date in,
just keeping up with the
ever changing technology
can be intimidating. But,
in order to make sure we
are utilizing a variety of
delivery methods in
Suwannee County, there
are a couple of us in the
office that are now part of
a National program, called
e-Xtension, to collaborate
with other land-grant uni-
versities from across the
USA to have a central
clearinghouse for research-
based information. This
means that consumers will
have a Web site they can
trust to get information on
thousands of topics. You
may ask why we are in-
volved since we have a
website with electronic
publications in Florida al-
ready. The great thing
about this is, with limited
resources, Florida may not
have specialists or re-
searchers in every area,
but another state may. So,
combining efforts helps to
make sure we have the
most comprehensive infor-
mation available. In addi-
tion, there is an "Ask the
Expert" link, where we can
help to answer consumer
questions.

When I first moved to
Suwannee County two
years ago, I heard many
jokes about moving to a
rural area. Little did they
know that "lil 'ole Suwan-
nee County" would be one
of the most progressive
counties in the state when
it comes to using technolo-
gy to. reach the public with
our information. I think
George Jetson would be
impressed!
