 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.

What qualifies as a clunker?
The vehicle being traded in must be no more than 25 years
old and must have a combined highway/city fuel efficiency of
18 miles per gallon or less. A vehicle that gets four miles per
gallon or more over your clunker qualifies you for a $3,500
voucher toward the purchase of that car. If the vehicle gets 10
miles or more you qualify for a $4,500 voucher. To see if your
ride qualifies as a clunker, go to www.cars.gov and click on
the fuel economy tab.

Swine flu hits home


Continued From Page 1A

Dowling Park said one
child was sent home from
Wee Care Center there
with symptoms of the
virus.
"The child was sent -
home after exhibiting
swine flu like symptoms,"
said Grillo. "They were
very suspicious, so the
child did go home."
SCHD continues to
work closely with pther
health care partners to
monitor the situation.
"At this time it is rec-
ommended that providers
manage patients with in-
fluenza-like illness as they
normally would during flu
season," Dr. Patrick


Woloszyn, medical direc-
tor at SCHD, said in a
press release. "Patients at
high risk for complications
should be treated with an-
tivirals, like Tamiflu and
Relenza, as should their
high risk contacts."
The Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention
defines "high risk" as peo-
ple who have various
chronic medical condi-
tions, are 65-years-old or
older, are pregnant, or are
younger than 5 years of
age.
Symptoms of the novel
H1N1 flu are similar to
the symptoms of regular
seasonal flu and include
fever greater than 100' F
or 37.8' C, cough, sore


throat, body aches,
headache, chills and fa-
tigue. Some.people have
also reported diarrhea-and
vomiting associated with
the novel H1N1 flu. Like
seasonal flu, this novel flu
may cause a worsening of
underlying chronic med-
ical conditions.

Mold-ology


By Katherine Allen
UF/IFAS Suwannee County
Extension
"Should 1 test for mold?"
is one of the more frequent
questions I receive when it
comes to that fuzzy stuff
that is usually black or gray
in appearance, but can b6
white, orange or' green.
Mold can grow in both cold
and warm climates, so even


in the "colder" North Florida we are not immune! Usual-
ly, the calls are when people have found mold or mildew
(a common name for mold) growing on shoes or a suitcase
in a closet or have smelled its musty odor. Generally, peo-
ple are concerned about the toxic mold they have heard
about in the media. Many experts agree that the health
problems, usually associated with allergy symptoms
(breathing problems, sinus problems, shortness of breath,
sneezing, stuffy nose, eye irritation, etc.), come more from
the length of time you have been exposed to the mold and
the amount of mold rather than the specific type of mold
that is present.
Basically ... if you see it or smell it ... you have it! The
important thing is to get rid of it and fix the moisture prob-
lem that made it grow. Since no EPA or other federal lim-
its have been set for mold or mold spores, sampling can-
not be used to check a structure's compliance with feder-
al mold standards. Surface sampling may be useful after
an area has been washed and/or replaced to determine if
an area has been adequately cleaned or remediated.
Did you know that mold is alive? The term "mold"
refers to a variety of microorganisms that can grow near-
ly anywhere there is moisture. Mold needs moisture, a
food source, air, and a temperature of 400 F to 100� F. The
best way for us to control mold since they are a part of our
natural environment is to prevent moisture from being
present. So, if there is mold growth in your home, you
must clean up the mold and fix the water problem. If you
only clean up the mold, but don't fix the water problem,
the mold will return. Similarly, if you only fix the leak,
but don't clean the area to remove the mold, dead mold
spores can have the same health effects as live spores.
In places like the shower that are often or always damp,
it can be hard to maintain and keep completely free of
mold. If there's some mold in the bathroom that seems to
reappear, increasing the ventilation (running a fan or
opening a window) and cleaning more frequently will
usually prevent mold from recurring, or at least keep the
mold to a minimum. Since mold grows quickly, when
water leaks or spills occur indoors-ACT QUICKLY. If
you dry materials within 24-48 hours after a leak or spill
happens, typically it will not return.
Cleaning

porcelain, and some concrete and hard plastics
can be cleaned. Other surfaces such as solid
wood, plaster, and surfaces that have a hard fin-
ish may be able to be cleaned. It is sometimes
difficult to tell whether or not mold has extend-
ed below the surface and the material should be
removed. Mold growth may have continued in-
ward into the material. If in doubt, toss.

prevent or clean it, contact Katherine Allen at the

Moisture control is the key to mold control
Keep indoor humidity low. If possible, keep indoor humidity below
60 percent (ideally between 30 and 50 percent) relative humidity. Rel-
ative humidity can be. measured with a moisture or humidity meter, a
small ($20-$50) instrument available at many hardware stores.

* Use air conditioners and/or dle-humidifiers when needed.

-If you see condensation or moisture collecting on windows, walls or
pipe, dry the wet surface and figure out why there is excess moisture.
Condensation can be a sign of high humidity. Make sure to vent ap-
pliances that produce moisture, such as clothes dryers, stoves, and
kerosene heaters to the outside rather than into the attic. (NOTE:
Combustion appliances such-as stoves and kerosene heaters also pro-
duce water vapor and will increase the humidity unless vented to the
outside.)

* Use exhaust fans or open windows whenever cooking, running the
dishwasher or dishwashing, etc.

Outside moisture control

* Clean and repair roof.gutters regularly. Discharge rainwater a mini-
mum of a. foot (more is better!) away from the foundation to prevent
water pooling and entering the house.

* Inspect your house after a rain to make sure Wqter is not pooling
around the foundation. Make sure the ground slopes away from the
house, so that water does not enter or collect around the foundation.

* Keep air conditioning drip pans clean and the drain lines unob-
structed and flowing properly.

* Check sprinklers to make sure they are not wetting the sides of the
house.

* Plant shrubs to ensure a minimum of a foot of air space between
the plant and the house to keep things dry.

That's how long it took a Suwanne

longer to confirm the details. But
within a day we had the proof we

plus years in federal prison for issu-
ing more than $530 million in fake
bonds here and elsewhere..
As investigative journalism goes, it
was remarkably easy. What's even
more remarkable is that no one in
county government beat us to the

may have to foot the bill in the ab-

some of his victims. Suwannee Coun-

Whose responsibility is it to know the current status of
bonding companies doing business within the State of Flori-
da'?? Does the State of Florida maintain a listing of bonding
companies authorized to do business within the state? If so,
shouldn't the state be monitoring them and have notified all
municipalities and businesses of the defunct bonding compa-
ny? Pass the buck ... pass the buck .. pass the buck ... until it

' "Not consistent with our values", Please. We got thieves,
murderers,druggies,hookers, embezzlers & plenty of drunks

tion was quite a bit lower & I'd rather see alcohol than my
homesteaded property tax go up,again. Another interesting
fact, one of the last dry towns in Tenn. just changed to prevent
raisiftg home owners taxes. They are light yrs. ahead of us!
The pro-dry group has yet to make a valid point in this col-
htumn, it is not relying on booze,it is about growth and services
to residents. To much of a good thing is always bad, here it is
religion. 90 could be lined with casinos & strip joints, no one

' we wised up and changed the law maybe we could afford trash
pickup instead of the constant clean up costs from people who
don't cover the loads. Maybe if we stopped allowing commer-
cial use of the sites it would cut costs also.

This is for the one commenting about the 20 new school
buses. If you would read the paper, you would know that our
school system has been approved to receive stimulus money
(as noted in one of the-May issues of the Suwannee Democ-
rat). I suggest you attend the school board meetings before
you start questioning or accusing the school board of lying.

What's to "understand" ? If everybody moves, no one will
pay taxes or the collection plate. We don't need to rely on alco-
hol,we need jobs. Many folks eat, work ,shop in different
counties because of this ignorant attitude. Our character & val-
ues appear to be fine with domestic violence, teen age preg-
nancy, and a sky high rate of STD's. Good thing we don't drink
tool!! If the kids had jobs in eateries like they do in normal
places these problems would be much less. I see more closed
signs every time I go to town, although usually I go to Valdos-
ta where you have choices. With the political scene here, how
can you be sure about the last time it came to vote? Seems like .
: the Sunday thing had plenty of support, but they voted how
they felt personally. Maybe they want youth to leave so they
can keep the stranglehold intact.

I don't like to complain about our community because we
choose to move here several years ago and have never regret-
ted it. We love the lifestyle and the folks who live here. There
art so -ma.ny beautiful little side roads where you can walk or

OF THE WEEK


How concerned are you

about the presence of swine

flu in Suwannee County?


Extremely concerned
0 Somewhat concerned


[Not too concerned
? Not at all concerned


Lancaster Lane is one such road and we walk it every morn-
ing. We will never understand why some people think it is
6kay to dump their old furniture and garbage along the sides of:
the road though. About 4 years ago the first couch.was
dumped and then soon another couch and then a chair and now
a mattress. I don't believe I have seen a DUMP HERE sign. If
these items are already on your vehicle couldn't you take them :
to the garbage drop off or land fill? Is there a service in the
county to scout around and pick up such eyesores? Please
people,you may not care about your surroundings but think
about the rest of us who are proud of how our community
looks. Take pride and DON'T DUMP.

Now that the city has beautified our sidewalks maybe they
can invest in a bottle of weed killer.

Is the county commission now on a witch hunt for Hal Airth,
maybe they can hire another outsider who will know nothing
about the county.

Is the city council being made aware of OMI'S out of scope
projects? Or is that information only for a select few.

I take great offense to Tom Daniel's Sportabout column con-
demning the Suwannee Democrat for reporting on the arrest of
Dustin Doe. It is well known that the University of Florida's
athletic program is constantly in the news for arrests and accu-
sations of this type (followed closely by FSU, the University
of Tennessee and the University of Georgia). Doe was an ath-
lete who played in Hamilton County until his senior year and ::-
then played at SHS. It is unfortunate that he allegedly commit-
ted these crimes thus warranting attention. However, the De-
mocrat simply reported this item. was it incorrect for the
Gainesville Sun or WCJB-TV to report these items? Why
should they be privileged to report these items but not the local
paper? I say "lighten-up" Mr. Daniels. The news is the:news,
good or bad.
I arm a birther. Elvis and I are trying to get JFK off the island.
so he can help us. Michael J has been abducted by aliens oth-
erwise he would be helping too. Have to run just ran. out of
Tea Bags. By the way climate change and evolution are myths."

If Sherwood Forest or Foxboro had been the area.of 22
home invasions would police protection be different?

I am tired of the democrat trying to make this. county
wet.What's wrong with you our commissioners are already all
wet.
What are they doing at city hall? Do they think they have
done something so horrible they did to be protected from the
public they serve? It's easier to get in an airplane then to see
the mayor.

Isn't it fun when the majority of the county you live in only
judge our president in terms of his religious-views, which
aren't even correct? Despite a lot of these people rejecting to
even listen to Obamas views on real issues in our country and
the world, I love this county. Just wish more people weren't so
blinded by their religious beliefs so that they could actually
make sense when they speak to people outside of their group.

Yes, to Bobby again. I'm sorry you have a job that gives you
only one day off a week,,but at least you have a job. But to
waste that job to drive to other counties every week to drink
liquor and waste gas is bad. Maybe you should move to one of
those counties, saving you time and gas each week and save us
from reading about your drinking problems every week. It's
your choice, right?

month. Jim Beeler, a UF graduate
student, will be there to present en-
hanced photo of what downtown
Branford could look like with a little
sprucing up. Branford is "a gem that
hasn't been uncovered yet," said


do it in a way that
will protect our
naturally re-
sources," said Mal-
oney..
However, Mal-
oney says the revi-
talization commit-
tee cannot apply


for state grants. They need the town
council to do that. So far they have
the support of two council members
and hope to gain more support after
the wide meeting.
According to the revitalization
committee, Branford is currently "a
place to go through, and not a place
to go." They want to make it a place
people are excited to visit.
According to Maloney, the com-
mittee has not received much sup-
port from Town Council, so she hope
the public will turn out share their
ideas and opinions about Branford's
future.

Queens for a day


Fundraiser at the Perfect Setting a big hit


By Lorie Land

Spa day was a huge hit
Saturday at the Perfect Set-
ting in Branford, thanks to
Peace Baptist Church,
Love-N-Care, Yvette Cruz
and Vera Knighton. Young
ladies who were raising
funds for college brought
their best smiles and charm
to this extraordinary event.
Food, nails, facials and


light massages were a luxu-
ry to those who came.
Sighs of pure delight and
laughter were heard across
the banquet hall. Fun, food
and fellowship. Who could
ask for more?
The Perfect Setting will
keep you updated on future
activities to come. The
Hawaiian luau is scheduled
for Aug. 29. For more info
call 935-4577.

'Baby Bailea' murder trial begins

Accused father Jeffery Ray remains unemotional as details of his daughter's last minutes are described for the jury


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

Mayo - Prosecutor Craig Jacobsen gripped the air
with clinched fists as he reenacted for the jury how
he believes Jeffery Ray shook his infant daughter to
death on March 20, 2006.
"He did it by consciously grabbing the child by
the back and shaking it, shaking it, .shaking it, shak-
ing it," Jacobsen said in his opening statement Tues-
day in the Lafayette County Courthouse. "He broke
her ribs. He shook her so hard, that about 40 per-
cent of the blood vessels in her right eye burst and
50 percent in her left eye."
Jacobsen said Ray continued to shake his 54-day-
old daughter, Bailea Leeann Ray, until he had "basi-
cally scrambled her brains."
On the day of Bailea's death, her mother, Rebecca
Ray left for work somewhere between 4 and 5 a.m.,
she testified Tuesday. Bailea was sleeping well and
showed no signs of any problem at .that time, she
said. Jeffrey, who worked as a correctional officer at
Mayo Correctional Institution, did not go to work
until 4 p.m. From around 5 a.m. until 4 p.m. both
Bailea and the couple's other child, 2-year-old
Thomas, were in the care of Jeffrey, Rebecca Ray
said. No other adults were present.
Jacobsen speculated that taking care of Bailea. at
flight, so Rebecca could sleep, and taking care of the
children during the day caused Jeffrey Ray to be-
bome greatly stressed, resulting in his loss of con-
trol.
- The defense countered with a different version of
events during opening statements. Around noon
the same day, Jeffrey Ray was watching NASCAR,
tending to Thomas and feeding Bailea when he real-
ized he ha d fed her too much formula. Next, she
threw up the formula and stopped breathing, ac-
cording to defense attorney David Collins. It was
then, said Collins, that Jeffrey Ray called 911.
However, Jacobsen says statements made by Jef-
fery that day and Bailea's injuries are not consistent
with that story.
Detective John Young was captain of the
Lafayette County Sheriff's Office on March 20, 2006.

chair in the mobile home where the Rays lived. The
defense claims that this was the formula that Jeffrey
claims Bailea threw up. However, Young says he

cannot be sure what the substance was, but he's rel-
atively sure it did not smell like vomit, but rather
spilt milk. He said he should know, being a father
of two.
Young testified that he also spoke with Jeffrey
Ray as Bailea was being life flighted to Shands UF
in Gainesville.
"He (Jeffrey Ray) was quiet, he wasn't saying too
much," said Young. "He had no tears. He wasn't
showing any emotion at all. He just said something
like, 'Thomas has never been a moment's trouble,
but this one has been nothing but problems since
the day she was born.'"
Rebecca Ray, however, described her husband as
distraught the day Bailea died. She says he was so
upset :that she had to calm him down in order to get
information about what had happened.
"He was very upset," she testified Tuesday as her
eyes filled with tears behind glasses.
At the trial Tuesday, Jeffrey Ray sat unemotional
as Bailea's autopsy photos were presented and his
wife recounted the moment she learned of her
daughter's death. "I did not know until I got to
Shands," Rebecca said in a broken voice.
Collins says it was baking soda intoxication that
caused Bailea's death, which he says was accidental,
and not violent action by Jeffrey Ray. He told the
jury Tuesday that Rebecca's mother, who often
baby-sat Bailea, and Jeffrey Ray all administered
large amounts of baking soda mixed with water
and sugar to ease Bailea's upset stomach and there-


by unwittingly harmed her. Collins says the baking
soda caused shrinkage of the brain, which, in turn,
brought on the extensive bleeding in the brain that
caused Bailea to stop breathing. When Jeffrey real-
ized Bailea was not breathing, he "overreacted" and
"patted" her too hard on the back as a form of CPR,
breaking her ribs. Collins said the infant's condition
made her more susceptible to brain damage.
"I find it hard to believe," Dr. Valerie Rao, med-
ical examiner for Lafayette County and an expert in
the field of forensic pathology, said when Collins
asked her if Bailea's injuries could have been caused
by Jeffrey Ray's "patting" her on the back.
"Anything is possible, but it is not probable," said
Rao, She added that there was "no evidence of sodi-
um intoxication. This child's brain was not shrunk-
en at all."
Rao called Bailea's brain injury was "inflicted"
and not accidental. '
"Bailea's injuries were consistent with being shak-
el hard and then thrown on a bed or against some-
thing hard, said Rao.
Rao said Bailea's cause of death was "a closed
head injury" and that "her stomach was empty" and
showed no signs of formula.
Testimony is expected to continue at 10 a.m.
Wednesday. Prosecutors told Judge David Fina on
Tuesday afternoon that their first witness of the day
will be an ophthalmologist from Miami who exam-
ined Bailea's badly damaged eyes. The trial is ex-
pected to continue until Thursday or Friday.


Burglary suspects charged with 14


counts each - in Lafayette alone


Ring may be
responsible for
100-plus break-ins
By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.Iivingston@gaflnews.com

Mayo - Lafayetie Co'unty
deputy Randy Hendlerson says


he has finished investigating the
rash of burglaries that took place
nearly two months ago and has
charged Dwayne Mertz, 38; and
Allen Lynn Thomson, 36, with 14
counts of grand theft each and
turned everything over to the
state attorney's office.
The men were arrested in con-
nection with a burglary ring that


may have hit 100 or more homes
in Lafayette, Suwannee, Colum-
bia, Taylor, Dixie, Gilchrist, Levy,
Madison and Hamilton counties,
and possibly homes in South and
Central Florida, said state prose-
cutor, Karen Hatton. Hatton says
it could take as long as one year
for this case to go to trial, due to
the large number of counties af-
fected and agencies involved.

Investigation continues
in murder case
Mayo - Lafayette County Sher-
iff Brian Lamb said the investiga-
tion into last Friday's murder of a
Day man is underwayand is be-
ing rigorously pursued. No sus-
pects have been named as yet.

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT

MEN: Stay in control of your life - Prevent an

unwanted pregnancy from affecting your future


By Beth Sperring
A.R.N.P
Suwannee County Health
Department
Do you want a free, con- '
venient and relatively pain-
less way to guarantee free-
dom from an unwanted
pregnancy? Do you wor-
ry that a pregnancy may
happen beyond your con-
trol?
Consider scheduling a vasectomy with a safe, experi-
enced health care provider. Even if you have no health
insurance, you may qualify for the procedure at no cost
to you.
WHAT IS a vasectomy?
A vasectomy is a simple, safe, minor surgical proce-
dure that blocks the flow of sperm, by sealing or cutting
the tubes in the scrotum (called the vas deferens) that
carry sperm to the outside. It is more than 99% effec-
tive in preventing pregnancy.
It's popular, too. Every year about half a million men
in the US are choosing sterilization by vasectomy as


their method of birth control (according to the National
Institute of Health).
You will not be hospitalized for a vasectomy, and you
will not have to return to a clinic to have stitches re-
moved. The procedure only takes 20 to 30 minutes.
A vasectomy leaves your reproductive system un-
changed. The only difference is that sperm cells are
blocked from traveling through the vas deferens. Sperm
cells are still produced, but they die and are absorbed by
your body.
A vasectomy does not affect your ability to have nor-
mal sexual relations. After vasectomy, you will still
have ejaculation during sexual activity, and your body
will still produce the same male hormones (testosterone).
Your secondary sexual characteristics, such as hair dis-
tribution and the pitch of your voice, are not affected.
You will have the same sensations and excitability as be-
fore, with no change in your sex drive or body "parts."
In fact, your mutual enjoyment may actually improve
because you will no longer be worried about an unwant-
ed pregnancy.
What are the ADVANTAGES of vasectomy?
* Vasectomy is more dependable than most other
'forms of birth control, including female sterilization.
* It eliminates inconveniences, risks, and side effects


that women experience associated with birth methods
such as pills, shots, patches and IUD's.
* Vasectomy is a one-time expense often covered by
insurance plans. It may also be free through state pro-
grams using federal grant money for men who have no
health insurance or who qualify for financial assistance.
Are there DISADVANTAGES to Vasectomy?
* Vasectomy is a safe, permanent, and relatively inex-
pensive (in the long run) way to keep from having an un-
wanted pregnancy-but it is difficult to reverse, so you
should be sure you do not want to have [more] children
before deciding on the procedure.
* Also, you may need to use condoms for a short time
after the procedure until your sperm count has reached
zero. This may take a couple of months, and your doctor
will need to let you know when it's safe to eliminate con-
dom use.
Do You Qualify for a FREE Vasectomy Procedure?
Don't let your financial situation prevent you from tak-
ing steps to protect you from unwanted pregnancy.
Financial assistance is available to eligible men
through the Family Planning Clinic of the Suwannee
County Health Department. To find out if you qualify
for a free or reduced-cost vasectomy, contact 386-362-
2708, for information and appointment arrangements.

SMS busy with summer activity


By Carnell Hawthorne Jr:.
carn !1 .'i ntiH rlt" it '._' t, .'ttn 1 v.corn
Suwannee Middle School was bustling
recently with students involved in the 21st
Century Summer Program.
Some teenagers were on campus retriev-
. ing credits to progress to the next grade,
while others were there simply for the ac-
tivities being provided through the sumn-
mer program.
Participants have spent class time per-


forming computer assignments, grammar
lessons, science projects and much more.
In June, instructor Ken Michal said he
spent a morning session leaching students
weightlifting, and later that day was back
in the classroom monitoring a writing les-
son.
In the school gym, most kids played bas-
ketball, while others opted for lessons in
archery. The on-hands portion of the
archery program will begin in the fall, ac-
cording to instructor Kaffa Owens.

Home invasion is


#23


Second such incident - and the 4th armed robbery - in less than a week


By Jeff Waters
jeft.waters@gallnews.comr

Live Oak Police reported another
home invasion inside city limits Wednes-
day night, the second in less than a week
and the 23rd since December.
According to a report by LOPD Det.
Sgt. Ron Shaw, two male suspects forced
their way into a home in the 1100 block


of 2nd Street around 10:25 p.m.
Reports from on-scene officers indi-
cate that several people were at the resi-
dence where a card game was taking
place. Shaw said the suspects forcibly
entered the home and held everyone pre-
sent at gunpoint with two handguns and
what could be an AK47 assault rifle. The
robbers took about $350 off the game
table during the robbery.


The suspects are described as black
males, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 10 inches
tall, 150 to 175 pounds. They were de-
scribed as wearing black clothing and
black masks. One suspect was armed
with the two handguns while the other
was armed with the rifle, according to
Shaw.
No injuries were reported.
The victims in this case were not His-


panic, as in most of the previous home
invasion robberies here since December.
Home invasion robbery #22 occurred
Monday night in the 1400 block of Du-
val Street.
Anyone with information concerning
these crimes is encouraged to contact
the LOPD at 386-362-7463 or Suwan-
nee Valley Crimestoppers at 386-208-

Pete Rose was banned
for life by baseball. Pete
committed the
unforgivable sin of
gambling. There are only
two people currently
banned for life. The other
bannee is Steve Howe.
Steve, a former Rookie of
the Year, was suspended
seven times during his
career for substance abuse.
That is not a misprint, this
man was given six one
more chances. Rose was
given none.
If Pete Rose hadn't lied
about it to the
commissioner of baseball
he might have been
reinstated. So Palmeiro,
Tejada, Sosa, and Clemens
lie to Congress. They don't
get lifetime bans. Barry
Bonds just got reckless
with the truth before a
grand jury. The truth
doesn't really matter. Daryl
Strawberry told law
enforcement the pants he.

neither was the cocaine

the Yankees. Keith
Hernandez works for SNY

What do they have in
common besides being ex-

arrests.

Canadian to enter baseball's
Hall Of Fame. Jenkins was
also banned for life after
being found with three
illegal drugs in his
possession at once, two of
them being derived from
poppies. His ban lasted
about two weeks and he got
the votes to get into the
Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame has a
character clause. The fact
that KKK members, spouse
abusers and an alleged
murdered got in, show the
margin of error is
commodious. Pete Rose
may be a lot of things but
he is'not a doper. I don't
think Rose has ever been
arrested, accused of rape or
lied to Congress. He does,
however, hold the record
for most games, most at
bats, most hits and on and
on. Perhaps if he went to
rehab like Lawrence Taylor
he might be forgiven.
Denny McClain was
suspended by baseball for
setting up a bookmaking
operation. He was. also
suspended for carrying a
gun. After baseball
McClain was arrested for
and convicted of: mail
fraud, embezzlement,
conspiracy, drug trafficking
and racketeering. He can be
found writing baseball
columns and doing sports
radio in Detroit. This is a
man who tried to start nude
baseball player calendars.
He also alleged he fell
down a manhole while
being chased by wild dogs.
Dennimy McClain can go to
any Major League baseball
park in North America.
Pete Rose is banned.

The Stanley Cup

Continued From Page 1B

January 2008 while training for a race in
Texas before traveling to Spain for
training.
Price won the inaugural All-City
Cross Country race in New York City in
May 2007. This was the grand opening
of the first legal mountain bike trails in
the city. He then competed in the
Shenandoah Mountain, 100 National
Endurance Series Final in September,
where he took home second place and
beat 2006 Tour De France winner Floyd
Landis.
"I get goose bumps thinking that I'll
be wearing red, white and blue and I
hope I can represent the country well,"
Price said by email of the Aug. 23 race.
Price was invited to the team by the
Cycling-Governing Board, which
selected each racer from each
participating country. He was notified by
email. "A letter to frame would have
been nice, huh," Price said.
"I qualified because I'm leading the
USA Cycling Endurance series, which is
a selection of seven races across the
states that you can earn points for how
you place," said Price.
The first event in the series for Price
was a 12-hour race in Ocala in February,
which he won.
Since the last interview, Price placed
top North American in one of the
toughest mountain bike stage races in
the La Ruta De Los Conquistadores. In


March he won a nine-day stage race in
India, which, he claims, has a 20,000-
word story behind it.
"Basically I've just been racing and
trying to stay competitive while trying to
find sponsors and raise money along the
way," said Price. "It's a tough row to
hoe, but very rewarding."
Price will have to tackle a 65-mile
figure eight loop through the
southeastern foothills of the Alps.
"Unfortunately the course is not very
exciting as far as mountain biking goes,"
said Price.
The terrain consists of asphalt, gravel.
roads and cinder footpaths.
"What will make it tough is the 12,362
feet of climbing which tops out at 4,717
ft. It's going to be like a 120 mile Tour
De France mountain stage compacted
into half the distance," he said.
Price said he only had six weeks to
prepare since he wasn't notified until
mid July.
"What I will do for this month is a lot
of high intensity climbing. My coach
and I will put together a couple of rides
in the area that have similar course
profile and I'll do regular training rides,
training my mind and body how to
handle the specific demands the race
will put on me. It's going to be the
hardest thing ever," said Price.
The other American invited to the
team is 33-year-old Jeremiah Bishop, the
2008 USA Marathon National
Champion.


Duel Night at South Georgia Motorsports Park

with the Race-Um Wreck-
Urn.
Wild-Ones took to the
track first. Jeff Guyton in
the #01 found his way to
victory lane. Second went
to #K9 of Terry Davis and
the #10 oiAlex Lang
rounded out the top three.
Pure Stock had the second
featured of the night. David
Kennedy in the #3 Monte
Carlo went to victory lane.
Emily Weldon driving #57
had her best finish of the
season finishing second and
Jamie West in the #88 fin-
ished third. Hobbie class
had one of the best races of
the night. Anson Bass, Mike
Adams, Adam Hitt and
Thomas McGrath put on
one heck of a show. Last lap
battle had McGrath on the
inside, Bass on the outside
and Adams, Gurley and
Hitt stalking. McGrath tries
to take the lead from Bass
coming off of turn two and
spins the car around sending
everyone in different direc-
tions. Anson Bass #16 wins,
Mike Adams #64 finishes
second, Roscoe Gurley #97
finishes third. Adam Hitt
#41 is fourth, and Thomas
McGrath #56 runs fifth.
Sportsmen/Super Stock
class has made some
changes and the changes
look to be good. Marty
Wood Jr. #13 wins, with


Roy Crain Jr. #31 running
second, and Lee Newsome
#8 finishes third. SGMP
Late Models had some
new/old drivers show up.
Marc Mitchell #93 made it
three in a row. Hard charg-
ing Darryl Shelnut #7 was a
man on a mission working
his way to the front and was
running Mitchell down
when the drive flange came
off and the'left rear axle
came out. That was the only
caution of the night. Randy
Merwin #38 was second,
and David Hodges Jr. #16
finished third. The grand fi-
nale was the Race-Umr
Wreck-Um with the first 10
laps running the normal di-
rection and the rest of the
laps were run in the right di-
rection, but the cars were
run in reverse. Anthony
Johnson in his Chrysler
(tank) Newport wins his
first Race-Um Wreck-Um
race. Dewayne Shaver #10
ran second, and Terry Davis
#K9 finishes third.

Integrity


The word "integrity" comes from the Latin
word "integritas," meaning soundness or
wholeness, and this is the same word from
which we get the word "integer." A person of
integrity,, like an integer, is complete and
whole. The American Heritage Dictionary
defines integrity as: "n. 1. Steadfast
adherence to a strict ethical code. 2. The
state of being unimpaired; soundness. 3. The
quality or condition of being whole or
undivided; completeness." The first
definition, steadfast adherence to a strict
ethical code, is what we usually think of
when we think of a.person with integrity.
That is, we think of someone who will not
compromise their principles for some
temporary gain or advantage. And although
this definition seems to suggest that a person
of integrity might be overly rigid in adhering
to their ethical code, the third definition, the
quality or condition of being whole or
.undivided, more aptly suggests that the
person of integrity is someone who is of one
mind and has an undivided spirit. You
Lord js one; and you shall love the Lord cannot be-a person of integrity and serve
both God and mammon. The calmness and
your God with all your heart, and with
allyour soul, and with allyyour mind, composure that is the hallmark of the person
and with all your strength. of integrity comes naturally from having an
undivided spirit and being wholly dedicated
R.S. V Mark 12:29-30 to right conduct.

Dancing in the summer rain


By Rev. James L. Snyder

This is the time of the
year when rain is a fre-
quent visitor, especially in
the afternoon. It is then
that a person is tempted to
go outside and dance in
the rain. One famous
singer was so caught up
with a rainy afternoon that
he did his famous,
"Singing in the rain." At
my age, the only dancing I
do is the bathroom shuf-
fle, which has become
more frequent than usual


lately.
The early Native Ameri-
cans used to do their
"Rain Dance," in the
hopes that some rain
would come their way and
water their crops. It is
hard to tell what their av-
erage of success was in
that practice. Obviously, it
was not so successful that
it has carried on down to-
day. It may very well be.
that their "Rain Dance,"
was simply some con-
trived activity to break the
monotony while waiting


for the white man to steal
their land.
Rain is a funny thing.
Well, not so much a funny
thing as something that
confounds the average
common sense, which is
not that hard to do. From
the advantage of many
years of observation, rain
will come when rain
comes, and just when you
think you have enough
rain, it rains some more.
In addition, when you des-
perately need rain those
clouds are deliberately


looking the other way.
When it is raining a
friend of mine always
says, "I guess we needed
the rain." To me this does
not make sense. Because
it rains when we need the
rain and then it rains when
we have had enough rain.
Or at least when I have
had enough rain. My defi-
nition of enough rain is,
when I have an afternoon
outing planned.
I have yet to hear my

SWhat's the problem?


By Fr. Don Wilson .
Do you know what the real prob-
lem with the church is today ?
It's PEOPLE.
People are the cause of schism.
dissention, division and the "the\
don't do it our way", attitude.
If we get rid of all the peo-
ple, then there will be no
problems. BUT, if there is no
people, then there is no body of Christ,
and in fact no church.
When you look at the church, you
should see the most unusual unity and a
spirit of oneness that is not found any-
place else on earth.
In St. John 13:35 it states, "By this
shall all men know that you are my disci-
ples, if you have love one for another."
You should see believers who are so
unified and so closely knit together like
brothers and sisters who stand together,
who love and support each other through
all the trials and temptations of life.
The world should not to see believers:
Arguing, grumbling, bickering, complain-
ing and in division.
How can people with such diverse per-
sonalities and backgrounds be closer than
earthly brothers and sisters and live in
unity?


In the clearest of terms 1 St. Pe-
ter 3:8 spells out how in six
points.
It says, "8 Finally, all of you be
of one mind, having compassion
for one another; love as brothers,
^ be tender-hearted, be courte-
ous; 9 not returning evil
for evil or reviling for re-
viling."
All believers must be of one mind and
spirit. They must focus their minds upon
Jesus Christ and His mission. Believers
must keep their minds upon. becoming just
like Jesus, and being conformed to the
image of Christ.
As believers we must have compassion
for one another and actually feel with oth-
ers. To feel for others so much that ... we
suffer with those who suffer, weep with
those who weep, rejoice when others are
honored.
Unity cannot exist unless believers feel
compassion and sympathy for one anoth-
er. Believers must have brotherly love
(Philadelphian) a very special kind of
love. The very special love that exists be-
tween brothers and sisters within a loving
family, who truly cherish each other.

love, without pretension, hypocrisy or
play-acting.
We are not to pretend like we love one
another; we are to love one another gen-
uinely and sincerely.
Believers must be tender-hearted. We
live in a world that desperately needs pity,
a world of extreme suffering. So many
suffer and continue to suffer without ever
having their needs met.
Believers are to have pity upon the suf-
ferings of others so much so that they are
moved to act, sacrifice and to reach out
and meet the needs of the suffering.
Believers must be humble-minded, to
walk in a spirit of lowliness; to present
oneself as lowly; not to be hJghminded,
proud, and haughty.
Many men have looked upon humility
as a vice. Many times a humble man is
looked upon as a coward. They feel hu-
mility is a sign of weakness, but in humil-
ity God makes people strong, the
strongest they can possibly be.
Do not retaliate, but bless those who do
evil against you. As tragic as it is, some
believers do evil and rail against other be-
lievers. In this world, and in the course of
behavior between people, everyone is go-
ing to be mistreated and reacted against at
one time or another.
So what should a believer do when an-
other believer does something against
them that they perceive as evil?

We are to be courteous (humble) - but
the Lord hates a proud look. We are to be
compassionate - but abusing the innocent
is an abomination to the Lord. We are to
be tender-hearted. But the Lord hates a
cold heart that thinks evil of others. We
are to return good for evil. But those who
respond quickly with evil, the Lord ab-
hors.
We are to be of one mind, but if we sow
discord by murmuring and complaining,
we are abominable in God's sight.
Think of the impact in our community,
our nation and the world if Christians
everywhere were doing and living in this
powerful way.
We would be ONE, mighty, unified

RELIGION


Bad habits


and being free of them


At the risk of
meddling, 1 want to
ask you a personal
question. What bad
habit would you
most like to stop? A
bad habit is defined
as any negative be-
havior pattern and
can be something
that affects your H
health, takes up too e
much of your time . '
or money, or is im- lf(
moral or just plain By A
annoying. No mat-
ter what yours
might be, wouldn't you
like to be free of it? Can
you picture how your life
(not to mention those
around you) would im-
prove?
When I was a little girl,
thumb-sucking was my
vice and no matter what
my mom tried, nothing
seemed to make that
thumb less appealing, until
I was about to start school.
I was all pumped about
heading out into the big-
girl world of kindergarten
when my older brother ca-
sually mentioned to me
that thumb sucking was
only for babies that were
not ready for school. I
panicked! Would I be sent
home? Would I never learn
to read or need school
clothes? .1 decided this was
far too important... (still
not much I wouldn't give


it
Rng


P ' up for a new
' outfit or a
t good book)
...the habit was
: ' broken! The
point is, I was
i about to be ex-
posed, which
^ia seems like the
worst thing
ever, but really
IFd is the door to
victory over
tterS any bad habit.
gie Land When we
keep our bad
habits hidden,
we can more easily deny
their harmful effects, and
justify our actions in our
own minds. However,
once they are exposed, we
can see the truth more
clearly, as if they are under
a spotlight. Then we can
weigh out the cost and de-
cide to take action. Ac-
countability is a great tool
to utilize when our at-
tempts to break a bad habit
continue to fail. It is de-
fined as a willingness to
accept responsibility or to
account for one's actions
to another; to answer to
another.
In Ephesians 5:21, the
Bible encourages us to "be
subject to one another in
the fear of Christ." To be
.subject indicates a willing-
ness to answer to another
for your behavior, and
gives them the authority to


speak honestly with you
about what they observe.
This can come in the form
of one friend or family
member, or a group of
like-minded fellow strug-
glers. The most important
quality to look for is a sin-
cere desire on their part for
your success, enough to
say the hard things when
you need to hear them and
to continually encourage
you to keep going.
Picture yourself free of
that bad habit and commit
yourself to an accountabil-
ity partner or group, be-
cause your heart matters.

Tell us what you think.
What do you think is the
most common bad habit
and/or what bad habit have
you overcome? Email

By Derek Maul P

This past weekend I attend-
ed a performance of the musi-
cal "Children's Letters to.
God." It was one of those true
community occasions, evok-
ing the sense of small-town
we're trying so hard to hold
on to.
The show utilized a small, intimate
theater. It's a cozy setting and the
room was nicely filled with people
from all over the town. The perfor-
mance was stellar, the audience was
encouraging and the young people -
all spirited and talented actors -
nailed their parts.
Afterward, 99 percent of the audi-
ence stayed for a 20-minute "talk-
back" designed to add an interactive
element to the evening.
Five of us - advertised as commu-
nity leaders - were invited to sit on
the stage with the cast and field ques-
tions that emerged from the show.
The discussion easily gravitated to
the faith of children and what we can
all learn from the ability of the young
to ask honest questions and then -
just as easily - live with the absence
of technical or narrowly rational
proofs. It turns out that kids are not
asking questions that demand tidy an-
swers - they're honestly sharing their
hearts; looking for people to take the
time to listen and to provide a little
assurance.
I believe we dishonor the integrity
of children's spirituality when we at-
tempt to pound their odd-shaped
questions into our neatly symmetrical
holes. Bombast and "party line" sim-
ply reveal our own dependence on
triviality in the face of the majesty of
God. Children, more often than not,

friend say when the sun is
shining and not a cloud in
the sky, "I guess we don't
need rain today." The truth
of the matter is, we may
need rain that day. I have
come not to pay much at-
tention to what my friend
says. In fact, I think I'm'
going to get a new friend.
Rain is a very important
part of our social makeup.
Without rain, much of
what we do would simply
dry up and blow away.
Not only do we need rain
for horticultural reasons,
but for sociological rea-
sons as well.
For example, we use
rain to identify somebody
who is not very smart, or
at least not as smart as we
think we are. We say of
such a person, "He doesn't
know enough, to get in out
of the rain."


What we do not know
is, perhaps that person has
a good reason to be out in
the rain. He may, in fact,
know that he is out in the
rain and has chosen to
stay out for reasons
known only to him. Per-
haps, he is just so delight-
ed with the summer rain
he just felt like dancing in
the rain. Are we really go-
ing to fault a person for
indulging in such activity?
I am beginning to think
that rain really gets a bad
rap all the way around.
Another example comes
to mind. Some people will
say, "I am saving up for a
rainy day." All I want to
know is what a rainy day
has to do with saving
money. Nobody ever says,
"I'm saving up for a
snowy day." Nor, does
anybody ever say, "I'm
saving up for a sunny
day." The latter would


make more sense to me.
There are plenty of sunny
days that I could use plen-
ty of money.
All I say, if you want to
save money, save money
and let the rain out of it.
The rain has enough to do
without being burdened
down with helping you
save money. Anyway, the
only thing the rain can
give you is a rain check.
Perhaps the .worst of all
is the phrase, "Don't rain
on my Parade." I have
never really understood
this. No person who has
ever said this to me was
involved in a parade at the
time.
Take last week for ex-
ample. The Gracious Mis-
tress of the Parsonage was
telling me about some
plans she was putting to-
gether and I simply indi-
cated that I did not think it
was a good idea. I know


when tQ keep my mouth
shut, I just do not always
do it .
With both hands on her
hips, looking at me with
one of "those looks," she
said to me in a familiar
tone, "Don't you dare rain
on my Parade."
At the time, I had no
idea what parade she was
talking about. If she was
planning a parade, I want-
ed to be in on it..I love a
parade. Furthermore,
where did she get the idea
that I could snap my finger
and cause it to rain? I'm
good, but' not that good.
Of course, who am I to ar-
gue with her?
The only thing I know
for sure about rain is that
God is in charge of it and
he dispenses it at his good
. pleasure. Jesus said, "That
ye may be the children of
t your Father which is in
heaven: for he maketh his

ple who tend to speak their
minds. When they do, they
invariably find room in their
hearts for God. Here's a
sampling from a conversa-
tion I had with one prisoner and an-
other visitor.
* Me: He's a wonderful writer; I'm
very impressed with his work.
* Inmate: Thanks.
* Visitor: It's too bad he'd already
committed the crime when he started
writing classes. I guess. it was too
late. -.. I
* Me: It's never too late to live. In-
carceration is a tragedy, and nobody
wants to spend all this time locked
up. But isn't meaningful life about
living forward?
* Inmate: I don't plan on wasting
my time; I plan on starting to
live right away.,
* Me: You might as well! It's why
we were created.

0toCHOOSE THE RIGHT BIBLE


Anyone can
- buy a Bible,
but it's not so
much about
buying one as
it is about find-
ing the right.
one for you.


Determine
what you
want in a
Bible.




| , Consider
which Bible
- translation
you would
like.


It's OK to
be picky.


So, you're looking to buy a Bible?
Well, when you come into New Life
Bible Bookstore we have knowl-
edgeable staff to help you choose the
one that's right for you so before
you begin to stare, confused at the
rows of options you have, don't be
afraid to ask for help and read this
article. Anyone can buy a Bible,
but it's not so much about buying
one as it is about finding the right
one for you. Like buying a car, this
purchase is a nice investment that
requires consideration and research.
If you're in the market for a Bible,
you're going to want to find one
that's a perfect fit.

Determine what you want in a
Bible. What is it you're looking for?
Is it a study Bible? Or do you just
want something that's easy to under-
stand? Maybe you need a Bible that
would relate well to teenagers, we


have that. Maybe flowery or poetic
language is your thing. Or maybe
you want to know the historical sig-
nificance behind every story. What-
ever it is you're looking for in a
Bible, chances are you can find the
one that will offer exactly that.
There are a lot of Bibles out there.
We're here to help you figure out
which one will suit your needs best.

Consider which Bible translation
you would like. There are plenty of
them out there, so it's going to re-
quire more than a mere "Eenie, Mee-
nie, Miney, Moe" to choose one. Ask
questions and browse through our
large selection to find out what the
different translations offer. There can
be huge variations between them, so
it all depends on what you'll be most
comfortable'reading, be it straight-
forward in today's language to the
old English version or even a more


flowery and poetic wording may
suite you better.

Consider your options. Just like a
car, options in a Bible do not come
standard, so you need to determine
what will be helpful to you when
reading it and what you want it to
look like. You can choose a variety of
covers from leather bound to paper-
back. You can even have your name
engraved on the front if you wish.
Maybe you're not that familiar with
the order of the books. In that case, a
thumb index would be a huge asset to
you. Maybe your eyesight isn't what
it used to be. We have Bibles with '
extra large print. We at New Life
Bible Bookstore offer a lot of solu-
tions for different types of needs, so
it's OK to be picky. We want you to
be satisfied with your choice in a
Bible for years to come and are here
to help you do just that.

How


to CHOOSE THE RIGHT PAINT


WHAT YOU

SHOULD

KNOW
- Some modern
0 latex paints are
actually better than
oil based paints.

Sne of tre benefits
of using latex
outdoors is that it
is more flexible
and "moves" as the
sur-face heats and
cools, instead of
cracking or
blistering.

Oil-based paint
no longer has
lead.

Enamel Paint
works well in an
area that is well
used and needs
to be washed
every so often.


There are many choices in paint.
Good quality paint-costs a little more
to buy, but it is cheaper in the long
run. Cheap paint usually takes two
coats to cover while with a good
paint, one coat normally covers well.
At Live Oak Paint and Flooring, we
stock a variety of paints to choose
from.
LATEX PAINTS
These have been improved a great
Teal since they first became popular
in the 1960's. Latex paints are water
based and is easy to clean up. Brush-
es and rollers can be easily cleaned
with soap and water. Some modern
latex paints are actually better than
oil based paints for home interior
and exterior surfaces. It's important
to choose the right kind of paint for
your job:
* Flat Latex Paint is fine for inte-
rior walls and hides surface irregu-
larities well. Some brands offer one
for walls and one for ceilings. Can
be cleaned, but in high traffic areas,
and in kitchens and bathrooms, use
Semi-Gloss Latex Enamel.
* Semi-Gloss Latex Enamel is
fine for trim, cabi-nets, laundry
room, bathroom, kitchen, kid's
rooms, and anywhere that a semi-
gloss finish is wanted. It is very


scrubbable, and somewhat water re-
.sistant.
* Acrylic Latex Paint is designed
for exterior use and comes in flat,
semi-gloss, and high-gloss finishes.
One of the benefits of using latex
outdoors is that it is more flexible
and "moves" as the surface heats and
cools, instead of cracking or blister-
ing.
OIL-BASED PAINT
- This paint no longer has lead. The
vehicle is usually lindseed oil and
turpentine, with other chemicals and
coloring. For special applications, oil
paint is great. For example, to get a
flawless finish on a door, gloss oil
paint with a small amount of lind-
seed oil added will leave a mirror-
smooth finish if applied properly.
ENAMEL PAINT
This paint has a high content of
resin, making it have a nice gloss
and is rub resistant, consequently
this would work well in an area that
is well used and needs to be washed
every so often. Enamel can be in la-
tex form as well as alkyd.
EPOXY PAINT
Similar to baked on enamel. This
is a very special paint used for ex-
treme durability and waterproofing.
It is a two-part paint -- one can has

NFCC hosts Practice


The North Florida Community Col-
lege Allied Health Department doesn't
stop at graduating its students, but also
assists program graduates in finding lo-
cal employment. Practical Nursing stu-
dents, graduating in July, were given the
opportunity to explore local career op-
tions during a career fair hosted by
NFCC.


Area health facilities participated by
setting up information booths with com-
pany representatives on hand to answer
student questions. Held in the NFCC
Career and Technical Education Center,
the event offered a convenient way for
upcoming graduates to connect with
possible job offers. At the same time,
participating businesses had the oppor-


il Nursing
tunity to recruit quality college gradu-
ates.
"The career fair is a good idea," said
NFCC Practical Nursing graduate Mary
C. Smith of Live Oak. "We were able to
submit applications and search for jobs.
The Practical Nursing program is won-
derful and the instructors are great. The
courses are challenging, but definitely


career fair
worth it."
Participatirig facilities were Florida
Department of Health, Lake Park of
Madison, North Florida Medical Centers
and South Georgia Medical Center.
For more information about NFCC's
Practical Nursing program, contact the
Allied Health Department at 850-973-
1662 or visit www.nfcc.edu.


Lake Park of Madison was among health care facilities participating in NFCC's Practical Nursing career fair. Pictured, left to right, are NFCC Practical Nursing graduates Emily Archer
(Perry), Roberta Agner of Lake Park of Madison, Nancy Skipper (Madison), Sheterica Thomas (Perry), Mary C. Smith (Live Oak), and Peggy Hamilton of Lake Park of Madison.

NFCC students visit Google
headquarters in Atlanta
Graduates of North Florida Community Col-
lege's Administrative Assistant program visited
Google headquarters in Atlanta prior to gradua-
tion last term. The students toured Google's busi-
ness suites and were invited to lunch in the
Google dining room, Leading the tour was
Google's Matthew Pritchard who answered ques-
tions and provided information relating to the
Google business.
"The students were in awe of the amenities and
working environment at Google," said program
instructor Enid Kozlowski. "The trip inspired
many of the students to think about their future
and the type of job they would like to seek."
Following the trip to Google, students learned


how to look and dress professionally when seek-
ing employment. Ruthellen Cadwell, president of
Wachovia Bank in Madison, spoke to the students
on how to dress for0an interview and at a job. She
mentioned the importance of keeping a profes-
sional look at all times and maintaining a meticu-
lous appearance. Devonna Sewell, a MaryKay
Cosmetic and guidance counselor at NFCC, also
spoke to the students and expanded on the metic-
ulous appearance idea. Sewell demonstrated tech-
niques for applying makeup and shared informa-
tion on how to maintain healthy skin.
These activities were among a variety of edu-
cational and skill building events that the stu-
dents participated in throughout the course of the
program. After graduation, many of the students
entered the work force while some decided to
continue their education.
