 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.

Suwannee lands
program to combat

When folks think of Suwannee Coun-
ty, they most often picture the beauty of

front," says

Infrastructure. That's the key to jobs
and growth, says Murphy McLeai,
Suwannee's new county coordinator.
Having water and sewer utilities al-
ready in place would attract more indus-
try to the area and allow the county to
compete when it comes to economic de-
velopment, McLean explained in a re-
cent interview at the Democrat offices.
"Developers are looking for infrastruc-
ture already in place," McLean said. "It's
hindered us in some ways not having it.
Most are looking for some type of utili-
ties. To put their own together is pretty
expensive."
'McLean said most developers are
looking for a place that is not only shov-
el ready, but also has other benefits, such


the rural landscape -- the sprawling pine
forests, mossy oaks, cozy neighbor-
hoods and elegant turn-of-the-century
homes. But what most people don't see
is what sometimes happens behind
closed doors.
On July 16, Attorney General Bill
.McCollum selected Suwannee County
as one of six counties to house a pro-
gram to combat the rising number of


back

domestic abuse fatality cases in the
state, according to a news release.
The Intimate Violence Enhanced Ser-
vices Team program (InVest) tentatively
Swill be established in Suwannee County
by August 31, according to Ron Colvin,
chief deputy for the Suwannee County
Sheriffs Office.

Jennie Lyons
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com
Jennie Lyons, executive director of
the local woman's shelter and agency
'Vivid Visions, is adamant about doing
everything she can to protect women
and children who face abuse. She un-
derstands the reality of abuse, because
she sees it on the faces of the women
who enter her facility; but she too, like
many of the women she helps, has ex-
perienced domestic abuse first-hand.
Lyons sat down recently with the De-
mocrat and opened up about her per-
sonal story of escape and empower-
ment. She hopes her story will inspire
other abused and battered women to
take the first step to leave their abuser.

Daughter recour
finding father
murdered in
their front yard
By Stephenie

stephenie.livingston
@gaflnews.com

MAYO - Thomas Ernest
Horton of Day was said to
be carrying several thou-
sand dollars in his jeans
pocket when was leaving
for work early last Friday
morning, money he
planned to spend on a new
home for his wife of 36
years, who was recently
diagnosed with terminal
cancer. Horton, 57, was
shot to death and robbed
just yards from his front
door. He fell dead at about
6 a.m. as he approached
the cab of a semi truck he
drove for a Branford firm.
There are no prime sus-
pects in the murder, ac-
cording to Sheriff Brian
Lamb. Meanwhile, the in-
vestigation continues.
Hours after the shooting,
Ammie James, Holton's
adult daughter, looked
around the living room of
their home crowded with
family, friends and police
investigators. She spoke of
the last time she saw her
father.
"He was leaving for
work and I said, 'Bye,

By Stephenie

MAYO - Jeffery
Daniel Ray goes to tri-
al Monday for the
March 2006 death of

in August 2006. Ac-
cording to the indict-
ment, Ray killed the
infant "by striking,
beating, shaking or
otherwise traumatiz-
ing" the child.
Details of the al-
leged crime are hazy.
In count two of the
indictment, Ray was
charged with aggra-
vated battery on a
child.
The Mayo Free
Press will cover the
trial, which is expect-
ed to run from July
27-31.

Daddy, I love you!'," she
recalled. "'I love you too,'
he told me."
James' eyes began to fill
with tears. She said her fa-
ther walked into the yard
and turned and said to her,
"Tell your momma I love
her bunches and bunches."
James says she told her
father to be careful as he
walked down the steps
outside their front door.
He pretended he was
about to fall and told her
that he was always care-
ful.
"He was always playing
jokes," said Horton's
niece, Mona Warren.
James said that a few min-
utes later she heard what
"sounded like fireworks
going off."
"I heard 'Pow, Pow'..At
first I didn't think much of
it. I thought he was play-
ing a joke," said James. "I
got worried when I real-
ized I had not heard the
truck crank. I heard him
'say 'Oh, God'. I'wish I had
g gone Qut sooner,, maybe I
could've seen someone."
As she paused and be-


gan to cry, Warren pulled
her close. She gathered
her composure and started
again.
"I ran out there and saw
him on the ground. I said
'Daddy, get off the
ground, don't play like
that!' Then I saw all the
blood. I didn't see nothing
or nobody. There was no
car."
Horton, who went by
the nickname "Thumper,"
had no enemies, family
members said. He was a
fun loving jokester who
spent all of his time work-
ing to provide for his fam-
ily or with his grandchil-
dren.
"He loved them grand-
babies," said Michael
Schreck, Horton's son-in-
law. "He just loved huntin'
and spending time with
his grandyoung'uns. He
kept to himself, if you
didn't know where he
lived, you didn't see him."
Schreck said Horton
loved his job second only
to his family.
"He liked driving that
semi," he said. "Workin'

with the Byrd boys was
his life. He would've done
it if he had lived right on
through."
Horton had three daugh-
ters and a son who had
died.
The day of the crime,
relatives speculated he
was killed by someone
who knew he was carrying
a large sum of cash.
"They had to have been
out there waiting for him,"
said Warren.
"Someone did it who
knew he was going to
work at that time and

Healthy Start Coordinator

As a mom, you want to
do everything you can to
have a healthy baby and
protect them from illness
and harm. Did you know
that breastfeeding your
baby can keep them from
getting sick? Did you
know that breastfeeding
can help you get your
girlish figure back sooner
and help prevent diseases
in later years? Surprising,
isn't it?
* Breastfeeding is linked
to a lower risk of these
health problems:
In infants: ear infection,
stomach viruses, diarrhea,
respiratory infections,


atopic dermatitis, asthma,
and obesity.
In Moms: Type 2
diabetes, breast cancer,
ovarian cancer and
postpartum depression.
* Breast milk has
disease-fighting cells called
antibodies that help protect
infants from germs, illness
and even SIDS. Infant
formula cannot match the
exact chemical makeup of
human milk, especially the
cells, hormones, and �
antibodies that fight
disease.
* The U.S. Surgeon
General recommends that
babies be fed breast milk
only for the first six months

Breastfeeding Week

August 1-7


Continued From Page 4A
of life.
I know, you're thinking formula is the same as
breastfeeding. For most babies, breast milk is easier to
digest than formula. It takes time for their stomachs to
adjust to digesting the proteins in formula because they
are made from cow's milk.
Breastfeeding is normal and healthy for infants and
moms. It is better for our environment because there is
less trash and plastic waste compared to that produced by
formula cans and bottle supplies.
This is hurricane season and having to feed a baby
during an emergency is another good reason to breastfeed.
Emergencies can happen anywhere in the world.
Emergencies destroy what is "normal," leaving moms
struggling to feed and care for their infants. Think about
Hurricane Katrina. What did those moms do at the
Superdome when they didn't have clean water to make a
bottle or wash it out, and had no way to heat a bottle up.
The breast-feeding moms didn't have those problems.
Their milk was ready to go and the right temperature.
So, the next time you get pregnant; consider
breastfeeding for the health of you and your baby. For
more information, please call the Healthy Start program
coordinator at the Suwannee County Health Department
at 386-362-2708, ext 218.

LETTER TO

THE EDITOR
To the Editor:

The Friday, June 26, 2009 "Rant & Rave"
column contained two "Rant"s complaining
about the seat belt law -- one claimed that it
was unconstitutional, that the writer had a right
to harm his own body if he so chose, and the
following one said that he had observed law
enforcement officials not wearing their seat
belts so why should he?
The answer to both questions appeared in the
tragic story on page one of the July 8th edition
of the Democrat -- "Crash kills 1, injures 4." In
that story, three people were riding in a pickup
truck that was struck by another vehicle and
the mother of a 6-year-old boy was killed: Un-
fortunately, no one in that vehicle was wearing
a seatbelt, the two other passengers were seri-
ously injured, and the young woman was
killed. THAT is why the government has the
right to pass laws to keep people from harming
themselves. When it is in the public's best in-
terests to act in a certain way, the government
can demand certain behavior. That is why we
cannot drive drunk. That is why we have to get
certain inoculations for our children before
they enter kindergarten. That is why doctors
have to go through intensive training before
they are allowed to practice on patients. Do
you want your high school graduate neighbor
to take out your appendix? Rules are a part of
civilized living. Abiding by them is part of be-
ing a civilized human being and caring about
your fellow man.
When the rule for seat belts became law in
New York in 1984 my husband and I were not
happy campers, but we had recently taken in a
small girl and we knew the only way we would
be able to teach her to use a seat belt was by
doing so ourselves. For the first few months it
was a royal pain, but gradually it became as
automatic as turning the key in the ignition.
Like anything else in life, practice makes per-
fect (or easy).
With all of the really big things to complain
about, fastening a seat belt is such a small
thing to worry about, and yet it is such a big
thing to help save lives. You know, those
"crash dummies" sometimes DO get it right!

Gail K. Dolly

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 authors.

God's Will???? For God's sake, the U. S. President is
not directed to do God's Will!!!! If you believe that, go to
England and become a member of the Church of England
and have them do God's Will!! This country was designed
to separate its government from religion!!! Keep it that
way ... for the sake of God, and His Will!

Yes, my rant is about people that live in the Falmouth
area. I travel US90 almost daily. It never fails someone
pulls out on US90 just to turn a few yards after entering
the highway. Just because you live in the area does not
give you the right to endanger lives, PLEASE WAIT on
traffic before pulling onto the roadway.

Had to laugh in a Live Oak store this week when I
passed a display of "pocket flasks" just like we used in
Tennessee during the days before serving liquor was legal.
You could own your own liquor but it was not legal for
restaurants to "serve" liquor 50 years ago. So, you would
"BYOB" (bring your own bottle), buy a-glass of ice or
non-alcoholic drink and the restaurant would add your
,liquor. Looks like Suwannee County folks are catching
up. Tennessee figured this out about 45 years ago and
started collecting taxes. Remember, you can't change hu-
man nature.

There's nothing worse than someone loving Suwannee
County enough to move here and then trying to change it.
If folks want to live in a wet county, they should move to
Hamilton or Columbia. The sale of alcohol is not consis-
tent with the character of our community or its values.
Suwannee County prosperity should not be dependent on
alcohol sales."The voters have already decided the issue.
I am thankful for the commissioners who understand who
we, as a community, and are not easily influenced by a few
noisy folks who don't understand us.
Not all change is for the better.

20 new buses for Suwannee schools??? How does the
school board now have 1.8 million for new buses but
months ago they said they would have to lay off up to 80
people becuase lack of money then they got some from
obama to keep the 80 workers on now they got money for
new buses. People remember that when they try to raise
your taxes.Looks like someone one lied about the lack of
funds the 1.8 million didn't just fall from the sky
Ell
My preacher also admonished the president. He talked
about war and torture and lying. When he was done, I
think the President had broke every commandment' except
thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife. He concluded by
asking us to pray, that we may never see the likes of
George Bush as president again.

I think the city council made Mr. Stewart council presi-
dent because he comes up for election next year. Maybe
this time someone will run against him and do as they say.

Well this is Bobby again. This week we decided to go
south on my only day off whichwas Sunday. We had pizza
and beer, went to the big club stores, spent nearly 100 dol-
lars, filled up on gas, saved 10 cents a gallon even stopped
and bought a dinette set. I don't think that's too much to
ask to buy beer with pizza on Sundays; and you never
know, next week I might even buy a car out of, town.
Thank you.

It's bad that Suwannee Countians worry about drinking
and driving and smoking cigarettes when they will not
watch for an ambulance or move out of the way. I think it's
sadder than the alcohol tax or cigarette tax. People watch
out for the ambulance, they're there for a reason. It could
be your family in that ambulance. Thank you.

Yes, I would like to respond to the person that was talk-
ing of smoking from dying from cancer. Yes, people can
die from cancer from drinking. That's all I got to say.
Thank you, bye.

I think we need more people like Mr. Alcom in Suwan-
nee County. He is human just like the rest of us. He admit-
ted he did something wrong and fixed it and yet we still
want to talk badly about him. How many of you would.
volunteer your time for free and do as much for the com-
munity like he does? I applaud Mr. Udell and Mr. Maxwell
because they know what Mr. Alcorn has done for the com-
munity. Mr. Alcorn has successfully done for the commu-


nity for many years and not expected anything in return.
I'd like to say thank you Tim Alcorn for all that you do.

If Suwannee county grew Hops and Barley instead of
Tobacco do you think this would be a dry county. If we got
allotments for grain instead of tobacco would we reinter-
pret the "Good Book". If you think this county going wet
is going to make a difference in alcohol related incidents
try reading the arrest record.
EiU
I enjoyed John Walt's article. He forgot to mention Mr.
Rubio's stance on Iran however.
"I have a feeling the situation in Iran would be a little
different if they had a 2nd amendment like ours." Was Mr.
Rubio implying the people of Iran need more guns? Was
he implying we should ship them? Was he implying any
country should overthrow their government by challenging
their armies with guns? Certainly not spoken like a "Wise
Latino".

I was really dreaming Seagrams would take over Pil-
grim's Pride so we could be a dry county making booze the
ultimate hypocrisy. Next to growing tobacco to kill our
own people and being proud of it.
,m m
The people we elect are beholden to the large special in-
terests groups here. This is why we are not progress freind-
ly. Agriculture & religious interests wish to perserve the fa-
vorable tax rate. The palaitial "farmhouses" & gilded"tem-
ples" are not paying what Joe homeowner is paying! The
ballot box is the solution. We are the largest dry county,
therefore losing the most income, but hey, let's just tap
about 10,000 homeowners to foot the bill instead of join
the real world. Economic development & tourism dev.
are quasi political, public funded groups who shouldbhe
paying attention & acting on this 'topic as well as the--
Chamber of Commerce. They should get it to ballot pronto
or we will continue to follow this path to oblivion.

Every time I go by the US 90 garbage drop-off on Mon-
day and see 5 or 6 cases (or more) of Busch bottles in the
dumpster nearest the walkthrough gate, I wonder 1) if they
were from Sunday sales and 2) resent us tax payers paying
to separate the bottles from the cardboard for recycling.
Maybe Waste Management needs to track the source and
make them pay and also educate our citizens on how im-
proper disposal practices can cost them in property taxes,

Callers to 386-208-8314 may express their thoughts, good
or bad, 24/7 about community issues and politics, but not
about private individuals or businesses. If you prefer you
may email your comments to nf.editorial@gaflnews.com.
You don't have to give your name, and please, keep submis-
sions to less than 45 seconds (that's about 150 words). We
want everybody to have a chance to be heard. Submissions
that are overly long will be discarded. If45 seconds isn't
enough time, write a Letter to the Editor. (Guidelines for let-
ters appear on Page 6A.)

positions herself comfortably on a couch in the lobby of
the dentist's office of Drs. Terry and Melissa Barnes.
"Oh! I should probably sit up straight," she says with
a big, bright smile as she wiggles about and pulls back
her shoulders.
For Sujin, it's been a long road from South Korea to
Branford. However, her reason for coming to the U.S.,
and staying here despite all the difficulties the
experience has entailed, is simple.
"Adam," Sujin said.
Dr. J, as Sujin is affectionately called by her co-
workers and patients, is the newest addition to
Branford's only dentist's office.
"She came to us with such an impressive educational
and professional background, we were excited from the
moment we met her. Dr. J has fit in so well with the
philosophy and personality of the other dentists and staff
members," said Dr. Melissa Barnes. "Our patients have
taken to her remarkably well. She has such a pleasing
and outgoing personality that everyone feels
comfortable with her right away."
Sujin says it was her father who encouraged her to
become a dentist.
"He made me, really." said Sujin "In Korea, we're
supposed to be very obedient to our parents. My dad is a
eIlf-tmade man. He worked around rich people who went
to the best schools. He believed that an education could
change your life, even if you don't have anything. So he
told me, 'Its either med school or Nike factory'."
Sujin says she wasn't interested in medical school and
talked her father into allowing her to try dental school.
"I lucked out and ended up loving it," she said.
Sujin graduated with a D.D.S. from Pusan National
Dental School, in South Korea, in 1999. After passing
the South Korean National Board Exam, she began
working in Pusan's Samsung Hospital.
But it was in a tiny bookstore in Pusan in 1996 that
her.journey to Branford truly began. It was there that
Sujin met recent college graduate Adam Burdick, who

was backpacking around South Korea while trying to
figure out what he wanted to do with his life.
"He brought me back, I'm his souvenir," joked Sujin.
At first, Sujin's parents were against the marriage.
"I'd ask my dad what he thought about me marrying a
foreigner. He would say 'nonsense' and walk away,"
said Sujin.
When Adam flew to Korea to ask permission from
Sujin's father to marry her, Sujin says Adam feared for
his life.
"Now he loves my husband," Sujin said.
For a short time, Sujin supported Adam while they
figured things out and he was out of work.
"For a while Adam didn't have a job and so he was
my shutter man," said Sujifi, giggling. "In Korea, when
the woman supports the man, we call them 'shutter
men,' because when the woman is away working, the
man must open the shutters in the morning. He knew
some Korean, but it wasn't good enough to get a job,"
said Sujin. whose English in impeccable.
Sujin and Adam eventually decided it would be easier
for her to move to the United States with Adam, than for
him to stay in Korea.Also, Adam did not qualify for
Korean citizenship. By law, foreign men who marry
Korean women cannot qualify. Foreign women who
marry Korean men can, however.
So Sujin packed her bags, left behind a devastated
family, and moved to the United States in 2001. But not
before marring Adam in South Korea..
Living in the U.S. proved to be more trying than Sujin
ever expected.
'There were times when I thought I wasn't going to
make it," said Sujin. They originally lived in
Washington D.C. while Adam completed medical school
at Georgetown University. "After September 11th it was


"Ilived in my parents'
house until the day I was
married. We were always
together," Sujin Ju said of
her mother. "When I first
came to the U.S., I would
talk to her once a week
on the phone and she
cried every time."

very hard for foreigners in D.C. They didn't give me a
work permit."
Sujin says not being able to work was unbearable.
"I had always been working so hard. Now I had
nothing to do," said Sujin. "So I went to the library and
check out the entire shelf of cookbooks. I cooked all day
long, morning to night. My husband came home one day
and said, 'Stop cooking! We can't eat it all!' I had never
cooked before. I thought the elaborate meals in the
Martha Stuart books was how Americans eat everyday."
Homesickness also ensued.
"I lived in my parents' house until the day I was
married. We were always together," Sujin said of her
mother. "When I first came to the U.S., I would talk to
her once a week on the phone and'she cried every time."
Sujin would cry as well and Adam would console her
saying;
"It's going to be okay, don't worry." Then jokingly
remark, "I'll be your American mommy."
"There's no substitution for mom," said Sujin.
In late 2001, they had a second wedding with Adam's
family.
"We had to have a Korean and an American wedding,
one in both places," said Sujin.'In 2004 the coupled
moved to Gainesville, where Adam is a neurosurgery
resident at Shand's UF.
"I wanted him to be a dentist. My dream was to have a
house full of dentists, but he didn't want to listen," Sujin
said laughing.
In the U.S., dentists trained in foreign countries must,
earn a degree from an accredited U.S. dental school
before they can take a state board and practice dentistry
in the U.S. So in 2005, Sujin applied and was accepted
into the University of Florida College of Dentistry. She
studied for hours, took all the tests, worked hours of
clinical and completed all four years of dental school
with outstanding grades, all for the second time. Like
her wedding, she had both the American and Korean
version. "I didn't mind too much," said Sujin. "I love
learning dentistry."
Through all the difficulties, tears and trials, Sujin says
"it was all worth it. My friends (in Korea)'would tell me,
'You're going to marry this guy and start all over?
You're crazy.' I would say, 'Yeah, I'm crazy, crazy for
love'."
"Now sometimes I think, 'Maybe I really was crazy',"
Sujin smiled and laughed.

There's a real treat


just across the river


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

The new and improved River Ren-
dezvous, just across the river in Lafayette
County, is a safe haven for exiled hippies,
weary travelers and local campers alike.
Whether an artist, poet or adventure-seek-
er, you're sure to be welcomed.
Suzie Page and her family are like their
own band of gypsies, traveling here from
Minnesota and living in temporary hous-
ing for the past several months while fix-
ing up the resort. And at the Rendezvous,
Suzie is definitely gypsy queen.
Suzie and her family have been in the
resort business for a combined 50-plus
years. Suzie's brother, Dan, has kayaked
most of the local rivers and helps visitors
plan their canoe or kayaking trips down
the Suwannee. Her nephew, Nick, who
spent several summers on the family re-
sort in Minnesota, is also a part of the
team. Suzie's parents are in the process of
moving to the Rendezvous as well.
Dan is an avid cave diver and discov-
ered the Rendezvous, home of Convict
Spring, a famous underwater cave diving
site, several years ago. "He knew I'd fall
in love with it," she said of the Ren-
dezvous. "We saw the place as having a
lot of potential." She and her husband
quickly decided to buy the distressed river
resort late last year. "We closed before we
realized how distressed it really was," said
Page. It was only a few months into own-
ing the Rendezvous that the April floods
came. The Rendezvous was almost com-
pletely under water. When the waters re-
ceded, the Page's found the place in worse
shape than when they first bought it. It
was totally flooded. The cabins had water


damage, the spring was
under water and the roads
washed away.
While living in a small
RV, the Pages have rebuilt
the resort all summer and
are expecting near com-
pletion this week. "We
started with the roads,"
Suzie said. "Everything
needed work, it was a
mess." Next they rebuilt
the campground and
quickly got to work on the
cabins. All that's left is to - .
restore the damage to the
Spring House and the
Chalet. The A-frame cabin
and other
river cabins
are already
being rent-
ed.
With the
purchase of
farmland
next door to W
the Ren-
dezvous,
Page says _.
they hope '4y0
to attract
the drum -
community.
"I've been
a drummer since I was 10, and I need an
outlet for my talent. We're going to build
River Hinge. It's a round fire pit where
every one can gather around the fire and
listen to the drums in unity," said Suzie.
"It will hold around 200 people." Page
says she plans to have concerts and festi-

vals in the field, but in the mean time, the
resort will host karaoke nights, live bands

Page also plans to install an Internet
cafe, -with specialty coffee available, and a
big screen TV in the Lodge. "People can

sit here and look out of the large windows
at nature. We decided to leave it open,"
said Suzie as she pointed to large mouth
bass and mullet swimming in the spring._
"Isn't it just beautiful. This is the real at-
traction," said Page as she looked out over
Convict Spring and the Suwannee River.

Verizon completes AlItel integration in Florida


New Signs, products,
services converted at
stores, including Live


21
Oak's


Verizon Wireless announced it has
completed its integration of former Alltel
stores in Florida.
Across the state, 21 former Alltel stores
now display Verizon Wireless signs,
products and materials for customers.
Advertising and promotions in these
markets also have been converted into the
Verizon Wireless brand.
Verizon Wireless completed its
acquisition of Alltel in January and is the
operator of the nation's largest and most
reliable wireless voice and data network.
As part of the integration, former Alltel
customers in Florida already have been


added to the Verizon Wireless Mobile to
Mobile Calling family, and may now call
any of the company's more than 86
million customers without using plan
minutes. Other benefits include:
* Service on the nation's most reliable
voice and data network, supported by a
Can You Hear Me Now? team of real-life
test men and women driving the local
roads to test network performance.
* Faster speeds when accessing the
Internet; email and corporate data as a
result of upgrading the existing EV-DO
network to Rev.A technology.
* Best-in-class devices including the
BlackBerry Storm, Tour and other global
smartphones and many more devices. :
* High-value services, such as Friends
and Family (formerly My Circle), and
other services like Push-To-Talk, V CAST


and V CAST Music with Rhapsody.
"We're excited to welcome all these
new customers, communities and stores
into the Verizon Wireless circle of friends
and family," said Pam Top6, Florida
region president for Verizon Wireless.
"When they see that Verizon Wireless sign
or mailer, they can feel confident that we
are always working to provide the most
reliable and best service in the business."
Former Alltel retail stores in Florida
also are undergoing a full remodeling -
featuring Vdrizon Wireless "Evolution"
design elements, including large demo
bars, technical support counters,
electronic greeter kiosks and more - to
streamline and enhance the overall
customer experience.
These store renovations are expected to
be completed by the end of this year.


Network conversion is another major
aspect of the Alltel to Verizon Wireless
merger. More than 700 former Alltel cell
sites and several large switching facilities
across Florida are being upgraded and
reconfigured to work as part of the larger
and more advanced Verizon Wireless
network. The high-speed Verizon
Wireless EV-DO Rev A network is the
nation's most reliable wireless network.
The massive, multi-million dollar Alltel
to Verizon Wireless network conversion is
expected to be complete by 2011. This
work is part of the company's ongoing
investment to keep improving and
strengthening coverage and services for
all Florida customers. Verizon-Wireless
has spent nearly $2 billion on network
enhancements throughout the state since
the company was formed.

abuse didn't start immedi-

apparent.
"Physical abuse started
on me the day of my re-

had become disabled from'
a knee, injury sustained on

and her husband faced
homelessness for the first

"Part of being homeless

They moved to Oregoh,

"It was always escalat-

so extreme that she was
beaten with "horse reigns

"He was violent all

and eventually toward our
son, who was two years
old by then," she said.
The family moved yet

Then Lyons' father suf-

The district will pay
$1.8 million for the 20

drops to 3.587 percent if

Fighting back


Continued From Page 1A

The program will help
Vivid Visions (the local
agency and shelter for bat-
tered and abused woman)
and the sheriffs office
build a partnership to bet-
ter identify at-risk cases
and prevent domestic
abuse related deaths in the
county. InVest is co-spon-
sored by the Attorney
General's Office and the
Florida Coalition Against
Domestic Violence, and is
funded by the federal Vic-
tim of Crimes Act. It will
also provide victims with
resources and options for
escape.
Domestic abuse fatalities
in the county spiked in re-
cent years as a result of
three reported abuse-relat-
ed death cases, including
the murder of Martha Eliz-
abeth Elliot; the alleged
murder of 2-year-old
Olivia Rescigno; -and the
death of 2-year-old Brysoi
Scott Lee Crews.
"When you go from hav-
ing none to having two,
then you have a 200 per-
cent increase," Colvin said.
But, he added, "for our
population, one is too
many."
For an area such as
Suwannee, with a popula-
tion just under 40,000, the
three reported cases caught
the attention of state offi-
cials, said Jennie Lyons,
executive director of Vivid
Visions.
"The state took into ac-
count the population, the
rate of lethalities and the


percentage of women in the
population, and unfortu-
nately Suwannee County
was within the top," Lyons
said.
In order to jump-start the
InVest program, Vivid Vi-
sions has hired a risk as-
sessment advocator, who
will work hand-and-hand
with a deputy investigator
on abuse cases, Lyons said.
"It's still in the planning
phases," said Colvin. He
said the sheriffs office
plans to hire "someone re-
tired with investigative ex-
perience in a part-time po-
sition" to work alongside
the shelter's advocate.
"When the two meet,
they'll be looking at identi-
fiers," Colvin said. "It will
be the investigators job to
determine which instances
could lead to possible
lethalities."
InVest expanded to
Broward, Collier, Pasco,
Pinellas and Sarasota coun-
ties, in addition to Suwan-
nee, this year. The program
was first successful in Du-
val County for providing
prevention and protection
services to domestic abuse
victims. The program ex-
panded last year to
Alachua, Duval, Orange,
St. Lucie and Seminole
counties.
Like the successful pro-
gram in Duval County,
with a 30 percent decrease
in its first year, Lyons said
she wants to see the same
for Suwannee County.
"My hope is that we'll re-
duce our lethalities and
eliminate them altogether."

McLean said Suwannee
County would be an ideal,
place for industrial and
other commercial ventures
to set up shop. He said be-
ing close to a railway is a
factor about a third of de-
velopers consider. Being
close to the interstate and
both Florida coasts are also
a plus.
McLean said an upgrade
for the county airport will
be essential as well.
"Executives with jets
have a hard time getting
in," he said.
McLean said extending
the runway from 4,000 to
5,000 feet and adding an
electronic landing system
would solve most prob-
lems..
But in the end, "it all
comes down to money," he
admitted.


McLean said if the coun-
ty can bring in more indus-
try, meaning more jobs and
revenue, then young peo-
ple might stay home to
raise their families instead
of leaving Live Oak on
graduation.
"All I will say is we
need jobs for our kids," he
said. "That's what the
problem is all over this
country, not just here."
In 10 to 15 years,
McLean said he hopes that
Suwannee County will
have made considerable
headway.
"If we can make the in-
frastructure, I think we'll
get our share of growth,"
he said. "We need the tax
base here, not driving and
giving it to Columbia
County. We need to give
Lake City a bit of a chal-
lenge on the economic
front."
McLean, 62, officially
began work as county co-


ordinator June 22. His
background includes real
estate development and
land acquisition, marketing
and finance and site acqui-
sition for private correc-
tional facilities.
In his fifth week on the
job, McLean said he is
focusing on the budget
.and getting to know each
department he oversees.
He is currently auditing
departments to see how
they operate, looking at
personnel issues and
ways to save money.

retires, as well as cross

He has owned a home in
Suwannee County for
about 10 years. He be-

for appeasement. They
rerun games and have this
absurd series, the 10 best
somethings. The
somethings range from
games, to positiofis, to
trades to bad calls, etc.,
etc., etc. None of the
somethings is more than
conjecture by some
unknown talking heads.
Keeping that in mind I
came up with my own
version. The five most
disappointing football
moments.

1. Jim Brown retires,
summer of 1966. He was
the best running back ever.
Some say the best football
player ever. He played nine
years and led the league in
rushing eight of them. An
accomplished athlete, he
played baseball,
basketball, lacrosse and
ran track. He could have
also made his mark as a
professional boxer. 'The
Dirty Dozen" and "100
Rifles" was far less
entertaining then watching.
him pummel the
Philadelphia Eagles.

2. Lawrence Taylor, drug


E~l'll~d~~l - lI~I
-- U N�
-'U,~


addict. He was called the
greatest defensive football
player ever by John
Madden. Joe Gibbs created
the two tight end offense to
stop Taylor who averaged
over 10 sacks a season in
his 13-year career. He was
a 10 time All-Pro and won
two Super Bowls.
He was suspended for
substance abuse and
became a cocaine addict.
Tommy Lasorda called
drug addiction a weakness,
not a disease. L.T. was
very weak. He has been
clean since 1998.

3. Eli Manning traded
for Phillip Rivers and a
first round draft pick, a
third round pick and a fifth
round pick. Manning won
a Super Bowl. Phillip
Rivers went to the Pro
Bowl, Shawn Merriman,
who was the first round
pick, has been defensive
player of the year, Nate
Kaeding, the third round
pick has been to the Pro
Bowl, the fifth pick was
traded for Roman Oben.
The Giants would have
gone to the Super Bowl
with Rivers. The Chargers


wouldn't make the
playoffs with Manning.

4. Barry Sanders retires,
.July 1999. The most
exciting runner of all time.
In a typical Sanders game
he would lose a yard or
two and gain a yard or two
and then he would break
one or two or three for 20,
30 or 50 or more yards. He
played for the worst
football organization in the
NFL, the Lions. They
couldn't win with Barry
Sanders because the teAm
and the coaches stunk up
the joint. That is why he
quit. He seems to have
fallen off the earth.

5. O.J. Simpson
becoming a sad joke. This
guy for some was the
second coming of Jim
Brown. He gained 2,000
yards in a season and could
leap luggage in a single
bound. He had it all. A
product of "no one ever
said no to me" he will
probably die in prison.

Remember the Shootout
tonight at Suwannee
Country Club, 5 till ?

Forgive All Injuries

Notice that the sixth act of spiritual mercy
says to "forgive all injuries." Thus, we are - w ,
called upon to forgive all those who wrong us,
no matter how large or small the injury. Not .
only is this good spiritual advice, but it is also
good from the mere perspective of human
relations. At times, this can be incredibly
difficult, especially if we have been wronged
gravely or repeatedly by someone who seems
intent on harming us. However, by forgiving
those who have harmed us, we "bury the '
hatchet" and thus end the conflict and any
associated animosity. Otherwise, we are sure
to keep the conflict running and thus increase
the possibility of being injured in the future. 4,"*'|-
Great acts of forgiveness are some of the most
morally beautiful actions, and often lead to
reconciliations which were not thought to be
humanly possible. Consider that in places like
Rwanda, where acts of genocide were carried out,
victims who had their entire families murdered
have somehow found it within themselves, and
with the help of God, to forgive their enemies. We
too should reflect on whether we are carrying
around any old grudges and thus have not forgiven
all injuries. And then, with God's help, truly forgive
them.

Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and
beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness,
meekness, and patience, forbearing one another
and, if one has a complaint against another,
forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you,
so you also must forgive.

R.S.V. Colossians 3:12-13

RELIGION


pressures of life


Heart Matters
By Angie Land

Since we are Christians,
instead of worrying about
how to solve relationship -
problems, can't we just
pray and trust God that
nothing bad happens?
Not surprisingly, a
young couple asked this
question: Very young. I
mention this only because
any of us who have lived
more than a few years al-
ready know the answer,
yet we may still struggle
to understand the reason.
The Bible records the
words of Jesus on this
matter in John 16:33, " ...
in this world, you will
have trouble." No getting
around it, the trouble is
here.
In the original Greek
language qf the New Tes-
tament, the word trouble
means "pressure". Daily
we face the pressure to


measure up to the world's
standards, pressure to
achieve and accomplish
and succeed. We also deal
with pressure within our
relationships; the pressure
of wanting our own way,
of living up to another's
expectations, and the pres-
sure of getting our own
needs met. These are real
issues that we face in real
relationships. James 1:2-4
speaks of this struggle
from a new perspective:
"Consider it pure joy, my
brothers, whenever you
face trials of many kinds,
because you know that the
testing of your faith devel-
ops perseverance. Perse-
verance must finish its
work so that you may be
mature and complete, not
lacking anything."
According to these vers-
es, our struggles are actu-
ally opportunities for us to
mature, for our character
to be shaped, and for us to
be transformed into the
person that God intended
us to be. Perseverance
means to be steadfast, and
in the New Testament it
represents the characteris-
tic of a man who is not
swerved from his deliber-
ate purpose and his loyalty
to faith by even the great-
est trials and sufferings.
This deliberate purpose in
,our lives and in our rela-
tionships should always be
to honor God, and we ac-
complish this by being the


proof that doing life His
way works. When the
pressure is great to be self-
ish, we can choose to give;
when the pressure is great
to fight for our own way,
we can opt what is best for
the relationship, these are
the tests that develop
steadfastness. Rarely
does God call us to pas-
sively sit by while He
works in our life, but
rather He gives us oppor-
tunities to participate with
Him in the work He is do-
ing.
To answer the original
question, of course we can
pray that bad
things won't happen,
and sometimes God will
answer "yes", but when
we see how God uses the
struggles in our lives, we
can better understand why
He allows them; it is be-
cause our hearts matter.

If it's Monday it


must involve work...


By Derek Maul


It's 7:30 a.m. on an- l
other Monday morning, '
and the "tile-guys" are ' , 1
already in our kitchen
hard at work. Fortunate-
ly Scout Labradoodle
and I took our trek .
around 6, so Rebekah
and I were already
loaded up on coffee
when the latest install-
ment of noise and mess got underway.
I can't help but think about some other'
tile-work we've been admiring lately.
Namely, the amazing marble and mosaic
designs all around Tuscany and Rome.
Simply breathtaking!
My favorite samplings come from the
Duomo at Pisa, on the famous Field of
Miracles. The color, the design, and the
sheer sense of celebration in the work
are awe-inspiring. It doesn't matter what
our vocation is, or what exactly we do
for a living; what counts is the commit-
ment and the creativity we bring to the
job.
So I'm praying that my tile-guys have
the same idea. Whenever possible I want
to work with artisans and laborers who
see everything they do as an extension of
their life of faith, and as a response to


this tremendous opportunity we
all have to act as co-creators with
the One who got the process go-
S ing in the first place.
Here's how I see things once
*', the news-media get a hold of the
story:
DATELINE: BRANDON, FL-
"Here in the suburbs east of Tam-
S pa there's a new renaissance un-
der way. Scholars have identified
the home of Derek and Rebekah
Maul as an active site in this
movement. Reports are also surfacing
that the impetus is taking root in families
associated with Brandon's First Presby-
terian Church. It's a Reformation of
sorts, a re-capturing 'of the spirit of light
and creativity that first galvanized Eu-
rope 500 years ago..."
Hey, it's a great concept. Let's all get
on board.

Things


-have learned in my lifetime


By Rev James L. Snyder

In celebrating my recent birthday, I found myself caught
up in a case of nostalgia. I never imagined I would really
get this old. Not that I am old, mind you, but I have reached
the point in life I never thought I would when I was
younger. Had I known I would get this old, I would have
saved some of the energy I wasted during my teenage years.
How was I to know that as you got older your supply of
energy began diminishing?
When I was younger, I could not sit still for long and no
matter where I went, I ran. It was impossible for me just to
walk. Often my mother chided me by saying, "Slow down,
young man." But I never could. I have finally come to the
point where I am in harmony with my mother's desire. The
only problem is, I'm not a young man anymore.
Today, I can sit in my easy chair for hours and not even
move. I keep a little mirror on the stand next to my chair so

And the marvelous thing about remembering things in the
past is that you can remember them as you like. It is your
version of the past. Some people write journals, I like to
trust my memory.
As my memory has aged, it has become better, just like a
fine wine. In fact, my memory is so good; I can distinctly
remember things that never happened. And the details I re-
member are simply astounding. Each time I recount a mem-
ory I remember new details.
The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has quite a dif-
ferent take on all of this. She remembers everything that ac-
tually happened. She has a photographic memory whereas I
have, according to her, a problematic memory. At her dis-
cretion she can marshal all of the facts of the incident in the
order in which it happened. Usually her memory throws my
memory in a different light.
No matter how I recount my memory, she always has
some correction to it. More than once, she has claimed I
stretched the truth. But I believe, if truth cannot handle
some stretching what good is it in the first place? If it is so
fragile and cannot handle a little bit of stretching, I am not
sure it is worth remembering.
As my body gets weaker, my memory gets stronger.
In the Old Testament, David spoke often of the impor-
tance of memory. "I remember the days of old; I meditate
on all thy works; I muse on the work of thy hands" (Psalms
143:5 KJV).
For David, in his old age his memory brought him a great
deal of comfort. "I have been young, and now am old; yet
have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging
bread" (Psalms 37:25 KJV).
My goal is to live each day in such a way that years
down the road I will have a good memory.

Hay




Field Day


Several local equipment dealers participated in Hay Field Day.


By Elena M. Toro
Extension Agent,
Suwannee County
and Brad Burbaugh
Duval County Extension


A few weeks ago over / B
one hundred hay and cattle ,
producers gathered at Mark
Randell Farms in Wellborn
to attend the 10th annual
Hay Field Day. This event ..
is organized by University '.'
of Florida IFAS Extension
agents every summer in
various counties throughout
northeast Florida. The
program is designed to
provide updates on various Mark Randell,
topics related to hay hay farmer and host.
production along with
equipment demonstrations from local dealerships and
industry partners. This year the educational sessions
included the latest information on herbicides for weed
control, fertilization costs, planting and managing
summer legumes, hay marketing and resources for
weather forecasting.
Hay production is a risky business due to the fact that
most hay is grown without irrigation; farmers rely solely
on the rain to irrigate their crop. Furthermore, the cost of
fertilizers, fuel and equipment continually increase. With
this in mind, several producers often try to cut covers
when producing a forage crop. Our advice to you would
be to work smarter and not cheaper. By attending the
aforementioned program farmers will be able to develop a
management plan based on fertilizer costs, yields, climate
forecasting and use alternative sources of fertilizer to
supplement production.
As part of the program, Dr. Jay Ferrell, UF Weed
Extension Specialist provided an update on new
herbicides that have been recently approved to be used in
S Florida. He also went over recommendations for
controlling hard to kill grasses in hay fields and stressed
the importance of timing applications in order to
minimize losses when applying herbicides to Bermuda
and Bahiagrasses. For additional information on these
new products contact me at the extension office.
The host for this event was Mark Randell, a well
known hay producer from Wellborn. Mark is an
innovative farmer with years of experience in the
livestock industry. Mark and his family were recognized

Hello Fellow Christians,

We are Billy and Ruby Richardson, a semi-retired
evangelistic team. We have ministered throughout
Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida, but we
are not physically able to travel too much anymore.
We have also served as the Pastor family in the past.
We still feel led by the holy spirit to continue in our
ministry, so we are seeking a church that might be in
need of a pastor. It is not my desire that a current be
dismissed so that I could be called as the pastor.
Rather, I am seeking a church that might be in need
of a pastor. No church would be too small, and
please don't feel that
because you might be a

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENTTO ISSUE PERMIT

The Department of Environmental
Protection gives notice of its intent to
issue an environmental resource permit
(File No. 175397-003) to Suwannee
American Cement, LLC, Post Office Box
410, Branford, Florida, 32008, to expand
a surface water management system at a
limestone mine, The Branford Mine. The
permit modification will allow the
permitted to expand the mining to include
a new 5.01-acre parcel consisting of 2.63
acres of pine plantation. 0.71-acre of
mesic hardwoods, and 1.67 acres of
pasture. The entire site is composed of
relatively flat uplands underlain with three
to ten feet of light-colored, excessively
drained fine sand soils (the Blanton-
Chiefland soil complex). The total
extraction area will increase by 4.53
acres and the total area within the
system will increase by 5.01 acres. The
application also revises plans to show a
containment structure between the
mining operations area and an old mine
pit which crosses a property line

With the inclusion of the new 5.01-acre
parcel, the total mine project area will
expand to 881 acres. Mining will
eventually expand from east to west to
create an 819-acre lake, approximately
90-feet deep. A cement production
facility currently located in the western
half of the mine will be dismantled and
hauled off site, to allow additional mining
in that location.

No additional impervious areas will be
constructed. The project does not
include dredging or filling within
wetlands, or other surface waters.

A 50-foot wide upland buffer will be
maintained around the mine, which will
be reclaimed with 31 acres of pine and
mesic oaks and 31 acres of shrubs and
brush. The final lake shorelines will be
reclaimed with a 35-foot sheer wall, with
the exception of one comer in the
southwest portion of the mine that will be
reclaimed with a 4:1 slope
(horizorntal:vertical), to allow the exit of
personnel and equipment from the
completed mine.

Approximately 123.8 acres of the mine
were disturbed prior to January 1, 1989,
and therefore are not subject to the
mandatory reclamation requirements of
Chapter 62C36, F.A.C. This portion of
the lake will also be reclaimed with sheer
walls.

Previously, the mine consisted of a single
large quarry pit near the center of the
mine, which extended across a property
line to the south. This off-site connection
made the quarry lake waters of the state,
and It therefore had to meet the
standards of Chapter 62302, F.A.C., for
Class III waters. After discussions with
the Department in 2008; the prrilttiee
temporarily resolved this matter by filling
In a narrow portion of the lake to create a
small Isthmus of land dividing the lake In
two. Mining activities will now only be
conducted in the larger lake, ,which is
severed from.. off-site, waters. Any
expansion of mining into the smaller pit
that connects, to, off-site waters will
require a modification to this permit. The
application to modify the permit shall
include plans showing how mining will be
conducted in a manner that with protect
water quality Ih waters of the state.

There are no other changes to the permit
proposed by this modification. All wash
water associated with rock processing
operations will be re-circulated into the


mine pit. Stormwater runoff from the
cement plant site will be retained in


accordance with a separate permit for
that site, Permit No. 61-163578-001-ES.
All storm water within the mining
operation areas, up to a 100year, 24hour
storm event will be contained on site.
The proposed land cover will be an 819-
acre lake with vertical sheer walls, with
62 acres of surrounding uplands covered
by shrubs, brush, pine and oaks. The
estimated project life is 100 years. The
construction phase of this permit will be
for 20 years. The future land use Is
expected to be agricultural.

This project is located in Sections 17, 18,
19 and 20, Township 6 South, Range 15
East, approximately four miles east of the
town of Branford, immediately northeast
of the intersection of U.S. Highway 27
and County Road 49 North, Suwannee
County.

This permit is hereby granted unless a
sufficient petition for an administrative
hearing is timely filed under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida

Reaching a community


through partnership

By Bonnie Box
Family Nutrition Program
assistant- UF/IFAS
Suwannee County Extension

To share the message of good .
nutrition, healthy lifestyle choices
and the importance of physical
activity, the Family Nutrition Pro-
gram Assistant for the University
of Florida/IFAS Suwannee Coun- ,
ty Extension Service, Bonnie
Box, and the Healthy Community
Healthy People Coordinator for
the Suwannee County Health De-
partment, Mary Ward, recently
partnered to bring a program to
our local youth. Programming throughout the community allows
hundreds of people to learn this vital message to maintain good
health and reap the benefits.
One such program was presented to the youth that attended the
4-H Hamburger day camp this summer at the Suwannee County
Extension office. The Fizzics of Soda demonstration was used to
help students understand that soft drinks are high in calories and
sugar, and low in nutrients. The students learned that by drinking
two 12oz. can of soda per day for one month, they would con-
sume 5.6 gallons of soda. This amount would equal 8,400 calo-
ries, and they would have to walk 100 miles to bur that many
calories. If these extra calories are not used, it can produce an ex-
tra two pounds of fat per month. The facts astonished the kids and
they indicated that wiser drink choices would definitely be a great
benefit.
According to a study in the Journal of the American College of
Nutrition, the average daily carbonated soft drink consumption is
approximately 1.6, 12 ounce cans for boys ages 14-18 and 1.0, 12
ounce cans for girls ages 14-18.
According to a study from the Division of Nutrition and Physi-
cal, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, beverage choice
can have a significant effect on the nutrient adequacy of the diets
of children and adolescents. Other studies have also suggested that
increase body weight is associated with soda intake. Soft drink in-
take has also been associated with lower intakes of milk, calcium
and other nutrients and with an increased risk of several medical
problems (e.g. diabetes). This does not even address the issues of
tooth decAy and caffeine dependence,
Overall in the United States, we have been increasing the num-
ber of daily calories from soft drinks from 50 calories to 144 calo-
ries. Milk consumption has been dropping from 1977 to 2001;
Overall, Americans got 38 percent less of their daily calories from
milk. The biggest milk decrease occurred among young people
ages 2-18, with milk falling from about 13 percent of daily calo-
ries in 1977 to a little more than eight percent in 2001.
The Suwannee County Extension office and the Suwannee
County Health Department have been teaming up to spread the
word to ensure that Suwannee County residents make the best
choices about their health possible. Together we can help our
community live better.
If this type of programming could benefit your organization,
you may contact Bonnie Box at the Suwannee County Extension
UF/IFAS office (362-2771), or Mary Ward at the Suwannee Coun-
ty Health Department (362-2708). All programs and related activi-
ties sponsored for, or assisted by, the Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences are open to all persons with non-discrimination
with respect torace, creed, color, religion, age, disability, sex, or
sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, political opin-
ions or affiliations.
For persons with disabilities requiring special accommodations,
please contact our office at least five working days prior to the
program so that proper consideration may be given to the request.
Our phone number is 386-362-2771. For the hearing impaired,
please contact the Florida Relay Service at 1-800-955-8771.

of industry leaders in
agriculture, petroleum,
academia, financial in-
stitutions and the gov-
ernment who want to
make Florida a leader in
the production of renew-
able energy.
Highlights of the
Summit include keynote"
speeches from U.S. Un-
der Secretary of Agricul-
ture Dallas Tonsager and
Florida Governor Char-
lie Crist, and a special
premiere of Josh Tick-
ell's award winning doc-
umentary film, "FUEL."
This year's Summit will
also include more than
40 exhibitors.
"With each passing :
day, the need for alter-
native sources of fuel
and energy becomes
more critical," Bronson
said. "Florida has the
greatest potential for
biomass production in
the country, and the
technology exists to
convert natural re-
,souices to produce
clean, alternative fuel.
This conference will
bring together all the
stakeholders so we can
continue working to-
ward the goal of reduc-
ing our dependence on
foreign oil while at the
same time providing an,
other source of income
for our struggling farm-
ers."
Participants will hear
about the latest renew-
able energy technolo-
gies, challenges relating
to project financing, per-
mitting and infrastruc-
ture, and the growing
market for carbon cred-
its.
"The summit will
bring representatives of
all of the key industries
together so we can move
forward as a state in cre-
ating renewable energy
In Florida," Bronson
said. "Thanks to our
mild climate, ample sun-
shine and abundant rain-
fall. there's no reason
why Florida cannot out
produce every other
state in renewable ener-
gy production and be a
model for others to fol-
low."
