 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.

$5,000 reward

in robberies
Staff
Live Oak City Councilman John Hale said
Wednesday the city is offering a $5,000 re-
ward for information leading to the arrest and
conviction of those responsible for the string
of home invasion robberies plaguing the city.
"We want all parts of our community to be
protected," said Hale, chairman of the city
council's Law Enforcement Committee. "It's a
serious thing for all of us. We're going to do
what we need to."
The robberies have almost exclusively tar-
geted the Hispanic community in Live Oak.
Funds for the reward were approved
Wednesday by Mayor Sonny Nobles.

many er
3. Confining cows in a
tunnel ventilation barn.
When humans are hot,
we sweat and as the mois-
ture evaporates, our bod-
ies are cooled (especially
if we stand in front of a
fan). The same principle
works for cows.
Many cows who are left
grazing all day out in the
sun, are cooled by a center
pivot irrigation system.
The grazing cows quickly
learn that if they stand un-
der the pivot's spray, then
go graze elsewhere in the


ivironments of


field, the evaporative
cooling effect helps their
body temperature stay
down.
The next thing better is
to shade the cows simulta-
neously to soaking them,
which is the principle be-
hind relatively simple
cooling barns. They pro-
vide shade, soaker sprin-
klers and fans to aid in
evaporation.
Adding a mist by sprin-
kler system in front of
cooling fans will also low-
er the air temperature in a


barn significantly helping
'cows stay cool.
The Cadillac of cow
cooling systems are tunnel
ventilation barns which
combine misting the air,
soaking the cows and us-
ing large fans to tunnel air
flow out of the barn while
simultaneously evapora-
tive cooling the cows.
These barns are typically
100 to 15�F lower than
outside air temperature.
Plus cows have the added
evaporative cooling effect
and the advantage of be-


happy
ing cooled everywhere in
the barn (like an air condi-
tioned house), while in
other barns they are
cooled only under the fans
and sprinklers.
California cows - step
aside - we have very hap-
py cows in Florida, too.
Extension programs are
open to all people regard-
less of race, color, sex, re-
ligion, disability or nation-
al origin. In accordance
with the Americans with
Disabilities Act, any per-
son needing a special ac-


cows
commodation to partici-
pate in any activity should
contact the Suwannee
County Cooperative Ex-
tension Service at 1302
Eleventh Street, SW, Live
Oak, Florida 32060 or
telephone (386) 362-2771
at least five working days
prior to the event. Hear-
ing impaired can access
the foregoing telephone by
contacting the Florida Re-
lay Service at 1-800-955-

(TDD).


Think of a lush green
pasture filled with content-
ly grazing dairy cows. Are
they happy? Probably very
happy if the temperature is
between 40� and 70�F.
But what about during
the dog days of summer
when temperatures are in
the 90's during the day and
70's during the night?
Stuck out in mid-day heat
and humidity those same
cows could be highly un-
comfortable. Especially
considering that their nor-
mal body temperature is
101.50F; their rumens (pri-
mary stomach compart-
ment) are big fermentation
vats which break down the
likes of grass, hay and corn
silage into important ab-
sorbable nutrients while
generating, among other
things, heat; and most of
Florida's dairy cows are
black and white Holsteins -
primarily heat-absorbing
black.
Our local dairy produc-
ers go through consider-
able effort to keep their
cows cool and happy.
Three methods used in
North Florida are:
1. Grazing cows under a
spraying center pivot irri-
gatibn'system.
2. Keeping cows shaded
and water soaked in a cool-
ing barn.

FRIDAYAUGUST 7 2009


By Mary Ward
Healthy Communities.
Healthy People
Coordinator Suwannee
County Health
Department

It is almost time for
kids to head back-to-
school. This is an exciting
time of year and there are
many things for kids and
parents to look forward to
on the first day of school.
As you are preparing your
child for the new school
year, there are a few
health and safety issues to
consider.
Backpack Safety
* Choose a backpack
with wide, padded shoul-
der straps and a padded
back.
* Pack light. Orgaiiize
the backpack to use all of
its compartments. Pack
heavier items closest to
the center of the back. Al-
ways use both shoulder
straps. Slinging a back-
pack over one shoulder
can strain muscles.
* Consider a rolling
backpack if your school
allows their use. This type
of backpack may be a
good choice for students,
who must tote a heavy
load.
* Through partnership
with the Live Oak Police
Department's "Rad Kids"
program, we learned that
students should never
buckle the backpack's
waist straps around them-
selves. This would make
it more difficult to,drop
- the backpack and run if
the child needed to get
away quickly.
* Make sure your kids
bend their knees when
they first lift their packs,
to avoid further strain on
their back muscles. ,
School Bus Safety
* Wait for the bus to
stop before approaching it


.Ba, to schoojAl D'saf T MENT



Back to school safety


from the curb.
* Do not move around
on the bus, stay seated.
* Check to see that no
other traffic is coming be-
fore crossing.
* Make sure to always
remain in clear view of
the bus driver.
* Avoid any drawstrings
on the hood or around the
neck of jackets and sweat-
shirts. Drawstrings at the
waist or bottom of jackets
should extend no more
than three inches long to
prevent catching in car
and school.bus doors or
getting caught on play-
ground equipment.
Car Safety
* All passengers should
wear a seat belt and/or an
age- and size-appropriate
car safety seat or booster
seat.
* Your child should ride
in a car safety seat with a
harness as long as possi-
ble and then ride in a belt-
positioning booster seat.
* All children under 13
years of age should ride
in the rear seat of vehi-
cles. If you must drive
more children than can fit
in the rear seat move the
front-seat passenger's seat
as far back as possible
and have the child ride in
a booster seat if the seat
belt does not fit properly
without it.
* Remember that many
crashes occur while
novice teen drivers are
going to and from school.
Do not allow your teen to
drive while eating, drink-
ing;,or talking on a cell
phone.
Bike Safety
S* Always wear a bicy-
cle helmet, no matter how
short br long the ride.
* Ride on the right, in
the same direction as auto
traffic.
* Use appropriate hand
signals.


* Respect traffic lights
and stop signs.
* Wear bright color
clothing to increase visi-
bility.
* Know the "rules of
the road."
Walking to School
* Make sure your
child's walk to a school is
a safe route with well-
trained adult crossing
guards at every intersec-
tion.
* Be realistic about
your child's pedestrian
skills. Because small chil-
dren are impulsive and
less' cautious around traf-
fic, carefully consider
whether or not your child
is ready to walk to school
without adult supervision.
* Bright colored cloth-
ing will make your child
more visible to drivers.
* Adults in cars should
always be on the lookout
for kids in the street, es-
pecially in a school zone,
but we all know this often
doesn't happen. Kids
should not expect cars to
look out for them; they
need to take responsibility
and protect themselves.
* Don't allow your child to
walk to school wearing
headphones or playing
with electronic games or
cell phones because this
will make them oblivious
to their surroundings.
Be sure that your child
knows his or her home
phone number and ad-
dress, your work number,
the number of another
trusted adult and how to
call 911 for emergencies.
Healthy Living
* Providing your child
with nutritious food and
physical activity is one of
the most valuable things
you can do for them each
day. When children eat
school lunch, they are
more likely to consume
milk, meats, grains and


vegetables compared to
students who don't, in-
cluding students,who
bring lunch from home.
They also have higher nu-
trient intakes. Cost-wise,
school lunch is a great
value. A typical school
lunch contains an entree,
two servings of fruits and
vegetables, a grain item
and milk.
* If you pack your
child's lunch, send money
for them to purchase milk
at school. It is easier than
trying to keep other bev-
erages cold and more nu-
tritious 'than soft drinks or
fruit drinks as well. Each
12-ounce soft drink con-
tains approximately 10
teaspoons of sugar and
150 calories. Drinking
just one can of soda a day
increases a child's risk of
obesity by 60%.
* When packing your
child's lunch, make sure
the lunch has 3 of the 5
MyPyramid food groups.
* Consider your child's
likes and dislikes when
packing lunches or
snacks. Have your chil-



Happy

11th

Birthday



"Bubb'





Johnson


dren help you create a list
of foods they like for
lunch. Take them to the
'grocery store and ask for
lunch box suggestions.
* For after school
snacks, avoid letting kids
pig out on chips, cookies
-and other fatty foods.
Fruit, cheese and crack-
ers, low-fat milk and yo-
gurt are just a few simple
and easy choices you can
make available to your
kids.
* Limit children's time
watching television, play-
ing .video games and com-
puter time after school.
Recess time alone does
not provide children with
adeqN �e.rcise. En-
courage ids to walk, ride
their bikes or play with
other neighborhood chil-
dren outside for at least
30 minutes a day.
* Set a good example
for your children by eat-
ing healthy and exercis-
ing.
* Stress how important
hand washing is to your
children. Colds and virus-
es run rampant through


PAGE 5A


school aged children often
resulting in missed school
days for the child and
missed work time for the-
parents. Remind kids to
always wash their hands
with soap and warm water
after using the restroom
and before eating. Remind
them to always cover
their cough or sneeze with
a tissue to avoid spread-
ing germs.
* Make sure your
child's immunizations are
up-to-date before school
starts. The Suwannee
County Health Depart-
ment offers free immu-
nizations Monday-Friday
from-8:00am-11:00am and
1:00pm-4:00pm at the
Live Oak Clinic and by
appointment on Thursdays
at the Branford clinic by
'contacting 935-1133.
These are just a few
things you can do to help
your children kick off a
healthy and safe school
year. If you have ques-
tions,.please contact the
Suwannee County Health
Department at 386-362-
2708.

BIBLE VERSE
"All your words are
true; all your righteous
laws are eternal."
- Psalm 119:160


Suwannee Democrat


Consider


a curfew
The official count is 24, but
the real number is likely
higher. The folks we've
talked to in'Live Oak's.His-
panic community tell us there
may have been 40 or more
home invasion robberies
there so far this year. For a
variety of reasons,.many
such crimes often go unre-
ported.
It seems a certainty that
blood will, eventually be
spilled, either by one of the
well-armed bandits or a
would-be victim. Make no
mistake, we support anyone's
right to self-defense. But
what if it's innocent blood
that's shed?
SWe don't claim to have a
solution. But one proposal
that's been floated of late
could at least buy us some
time: a citywide curfew. As
Sonny Nobles notes in his
Mayor's Corner (elsewhere
on this page), the idea has
been broached in recent dis-
cussions with local police.
And while it may seem a
drastic step, we've heard no
better suggestion in recent
weeks.
We'd like to hear from you
on this matter. If you have
something to say, the time to
speak up is now. All of Live
Oak is listening.


Please address letters to:
Letters To The Editor,
Suwannee Democrat,
PO Box 370, Live Oak, FL
32064.
Please include your full name, ad-
dress and daytime phone number.
We ask this so we can verify your
letter and discuss any questions
about it with you.


Rant



",Want to vent? Our

hotline is open 24/7.
Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak your mind! How? By
calling the Suwannee Democrat Rant and Rave hotline. The hot-
line never closes and is your way to let it out. You can let every-
one know how you feel -- as long as you express yourself in a re-
spectful way.
Note: In written entries to Rant and Rave, errrs in spelling,
grammar or punctuation are those of the authors.

Well done staff! It is refreshing & hopeful to see our local paper
speaking up for improvement & change, The bond thing is real
breaking news we may have never heard about. Personally, heads
should roll over this. Our new coordinator needs the support you
have given him, now let's see if the commission is ready & will-,
ing to support and assist him, or simply stay with thier personal
agenda as usual. The blame really falls on voters for either not vot-
ing or keeping the status quo.
I mi
Fact & history show that our countries current "controlled sub-
stance" laws as well as this dry county thing are uniquely south-
ern. They are also firmly rooted in discrimination & racism. We.
have liquor by the drink here, at exclusive private clubs. Politics
& religion have justified human genocide for 40 centuries. At-
tempts at forming utopic societies based on beliefs have always
failed, often'becoming very dangerous cults. The state has inter-
vened on the alcohol issue before.& should once again. One
would think our "values" here are narrow mindedness & isola-
tionism, neither of which bode well for our future.

The Suwannee Public Library has a lot of DVDs. BUT, their


uess who's turning 65 years
old on August 15. No, it's
not me. This birthday boy
Gis one of the most recogniz-
able figures in our nation and around the
world. Okay no more guesses, it's
Smokey Bear. I didn't realize he had been
around that long. If we use dog years,
maybe they are close to bear years, that
means he is around 455 in human years.
We still have my son's Smokey Bear
stuffed animal that my Uncle Wyman and
Aunt Vivian gave him about 35 years
ago. It's packed up somewhere in some of
the treasures we have saved. It was in
pretty bad shape the last time we saw it.
The Live Oak Fire Department has its
own mascot, Sparky. He's not nearly as
old as Smokey. There is no telling how
many lives and how much property the
Smokey Bear campaign has saved over
those 65 years. Happy birthday Smokey.
Warning, there has been a rash of rob-
beries recently in the city. Some were
person on person and others home inva-
sion type crimes; There are things each of
us can do to protect ourselves. Be aware
of your surroundings. Watch what's going
on arou i . Keep yourself out ofpo-
ioidns thi l make you vulnerable to
sori4pt of crime. Keep your doors and
\ indo\\ s locked. Don't unlock your door
to anyone you do not know. Curtains
should be closed, especially at night. Just
use your common sense. It is important
to report suspicious activity to law en-
forcement if you feel uncomfortable with,
what's going on.
As I just stated, there has been a series
of crimes taking place in the city. Most of
them have been directed against mem-


lave

collection is so small that we've viewed all of those we thought we
would enjoy. PLEASE donate your previously-viewed DVDs to
the library so everyone has a greater selection! If you haven't
walked the aisles to see what you might like,.you don't know what
you are missing! :) Thanks.

I would like to thank the patriotic American's that are standing
up to government, both local, state and federal, and letting their
voices be hear. A continued movement by the tax-paying, grass-
roots citizens may finally restore government of the people, by the
people, and for the people.
i' . I
Suwannee County is a dry agricultural county. The people have
voted, if you don't like it move. 1-10 does not have the traffic
count that 1-75 has. Nothing would improve or change by making
the county wet. This county is rural and will always be. There is-
n't a community college so there are very few young adults. There
isn't a movie theatre. The county residents don't really utilize the
only fun in this county which is the river. Alcohol sales alone are
not enough to generate revenue. The county can generate money
by having an animal license fee. That would help with the county
shelter and maybe cut down on strays. The county could make
business get a license to operate in the county, not just the city.
Sales tax could be increased by half a cents to pave some dirt
roads, but liquor sales are not enough to save the county. So use
your imagination, something other than alcohol sales.
SM Em
This is more of'a rave and preach. I'm so blessed to live in a
community who has so many Christians standing firm against the
devil about keeping this a dry county. As for the Christian home-
owners who are on the fence about this issue, just remember to
trust God. And also to Bobby, please come to church Sunday, rm
sure that you will find everything you need there.

bers of the Hispanic'community. It's just
a matter of time before the problem turns
more serious. The Live Oak Police De-

utmost attention. I have had several meet-
ings with Chief Buddy Williams dis-
cussing strategies to stop these crimes
and apprehend those responsible. A cur-
few has even been mentioned. Chief
o Williams feels it is getting just that seri-
ous. The city, in cooperation with
CRIMESTOPPERS is offering a reward
of up to $5,000 for information leading to,
the arrest of these criminals. Should you
have information concerning these
crimes, call 208-TIPS (8477). You will
remain anonymous. Your name is not re-
quired. The police department is hosting
a "town hall meeting" with members of
the Hispanic community and others at
Hale Park on August 10 at 7 p.m. Help us
resolve this very serious situation.

teering in Branford,
you're sure to find a
cause that is impor-
,tant to you. There
are tons of organiza-
tions and ways to get
involved in the com-
munity, even if
you're on a tight
schedule. Both the
American Red Cross
and Habitat for Hu-
manity do work in
and around the Bran-
ford area: The Ro-
tary and Shrine clubs
are also well-estab-
lished here. Rotary
can connect you with.
overseas opportuni-
ties as well.
If working with
youth interests you,
there are volunteer
opportunities at
Branford High
School and Elemen-
tary School working
in the classroom
with students and
teachers. There are
also opportunities at
the Branford library
for those who want
to help encourage lit-
eracy in the area.


Commissioner Wesley Wainwright.
According to Wainwright, the county
decided to create a new fire station
after learning that mold abatement in
the old building would cost $50,000
without guarantee that the mold
would not return. The county is cur-
rently renting a dwelling house for
fire personnel. Wainwright says the
county has not been able to obtain a
grant for the new fire station as of
yet. He hopes to have plans ready to


present to the public in the next few
months.
A federal grant for a new health de-
partment has already been secured,
Said Wainwright. The county is con-
sidering tearing down the old, mold
infested, fire station next to town hall,
and building a brand new building on
the lot. However, the county is cur-
rently in the planning stages and has
not made any. final decisions, said
Wainwright.

"It is a'no-brainer,"
said Maloney. "Who

"Private money fol-

said Beeler. Maloney
says the group plans
to encourage the
town to make these
changes through
grants.
"Essentially you
haven't spent that
much money," said
Maloney.
However, town

Branford implements Red Flag system on identity theft


By Stephenie
Livingston
Florida law now requires that
all communities implement an
identity theft program as part of
the Red Flag rule, which re-
quires all financial institutions
and creditors to create policies
intended to protect customers
against identity theft. County


Clerk Donna Hardin says the
town implemented the system
because of new state policies
and not because the town was
having identity theft problems.
However, this system should
keep it that way.
Creditors, bankers and others
are expected by law to "raise a
red flag" or notify police if they


notice any suspicious activities
that points to possible identity
theft. The Branford Town Coun-
cil voted to adopt the preven-
tion program during its last
ineeting. Kevin Daly, Branford's
town attorney, called the deci-
sion "a very important step."
Branford is a small town
where there aren't many


strangers, so identity theft has
not been a major concern to
many locals. However, officials
encourage citizens to keep track
of their finances and to famil-
iarize themselves with identity
theft. As Branford grows, offi-
cials say it is important to take
early steps to protect old and
new citizens alike.

We failed to submit the correct number of required monthly sampling for total coliform bacteria following a total coliform positive

We are working to ensure that the correct numbers offollow-up samples are submitted to the Department.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead .ii
drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The Town of Branford is
responsible for providing high quality drinking water; but cannot control the variety of materials used ii plumbing components. When
your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minintize the potentialforlead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2
minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water; you may wish to have your water
tested. Information on lead in drinking water; testing methods, and sifp' ' lid tr l take to miinmite exposure is availablefrom the Safe
Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epd.gov/safewater/lead.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells.
As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases,
radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting front the presence of animals orfrom human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come fmim sewage ireatment.plants, septic systems, agricultural
livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be 'naturally-occurring or result from urban storntwater runoff,
industrial or domestic wastewater discharges,.oil and gas production, mining, or farning.I
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may cbme from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stornmwater runoff, and residential
uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic cheniicals, which are by-products of industrial processes
and petroleum production, and can, also come fronz gas stations, urban stormwater runoff and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and miinig activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in
water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations esfablish'limits for contaminants in
bottled water; which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water; including bottled water; may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The
presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and
.potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-
4791.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised
persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with
HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people
should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EIA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the
risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Sqfe Drinking Water Hotline
(800-426-4791).

We at The Town of Branford would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and
protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water, If you have any questions or concerns about the

2008 Annual Drinking Water


Quality Report


Town of Branford

This report will be minailed to customers only upon request and is also available ait lown Hall upon request.
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services
we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply ofdrinking water: We want you to understand
the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of
your water: Our water source cones from two wells that draw water from the Floridan Aquifer; a local water source, then the water is disinfected.
In 2008 the Department of Environmnental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system and a search of the data sources indicated
no potential sources of contamination near our wells. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection
Program (SWAPP) website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp

This report shows our water quality results and what they mean.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact the Town of Branford at 386-935-1146. We encourage
our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They
are held on second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 PM at the Town Hall.

The Town of Branford routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations.
Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2008. Data
obtained before January 1, 2008, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and
regulations.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following
definitions: '

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that ib , '. n-ed. i Jr,,~rti, water MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as
feasible using the best available treatment technology.

Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to
health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant, which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.

Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that
addition of a disinfectant is necessaryfor control of microbial contaminants.

Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or-expected risk to
health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits ofthe use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.

Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (ing/l) - one part by weight of analyze to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.

Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/l) - one part by weight bf analyze to I billion parts by weight of the water sample.

Man convicted c


Jeffrey D. Ray faces
life term for death
of infant daughter
By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

MAYO-A Lafayette County jury
found Jeffrey D. Ray guilty of murder
last Thursday in the 2006 death of his,
infant daughter, Bailea Leeann Ray.
Ray had little visible reaction when
the verdicts were read by Clerk of
Court Ricky Lyons at the county court-
house.
The jury, which began deliberations
around 4 p.m. and continued into the
evening, found Ray guilty of first-de-
gree murder and aggravated child
abuse.
As testimony ended shortly after
noon, prosecutors were confident they
had succeeded in proving their case,
especially after testimony Thursday by
ophthalmologist Dr. Sanders R.
Dubovy of the Bascom Palmer Insti-
tute at the University of Miami.
Dubovy, a medical doctor as well as
an ophthalmologist, said last Thursday
that the argument made by the defense
that baking soda aided in Bailea's
death was unfounded.
"Sodium breaks down in the blood
after death. It would not have been the
same as when the child was alive,"
said Sanders in explaining why
Bailea's blood was never tested for
baking soda intoxication.
Dubovy added that such testing was
not necessary since the extensive hem-
orrhage of both Bailea's eyes "com-
piled with the trauma to the brain and
ribs pointed) to non-accidental trau-
ma," he said. "This is the most consis-
tent explanation."


Dr. Randall Alexander, an expert at
the University of Florida in "shaken-
baby syndrome," also took the stand
Thursday.
"It was my diagnosis that she has
died of shaken-baby syndrome," said
Alexander. Alexander explained to the
jury that Bailea's brain and rib injuries
were consistent with shaken-baby syn-
drome after closely examining autopsy
photos.
"What is your opinion? Did severe,
violent force kill this baby" Prosecutor
Craig Jacobsen asked Dr. Alexander.
"Violent enough that it broke ribs,"
said Alexander, followed by gasps and
chatter throughout the courtroom. "It
was from severe squeezing forces that
were in conjunction with shaken-baby
.syndrome."
N ,;> i, statee rests its case," said Jacob-

The case made by the defense
seemed shaky to prosecutors from the
start.
"Can baking soda break ribs?'r'Ja-
cobsen asked the jury last week.
Defense attorney Chuck Collins
brought to the stand several individu-
als to testify as to Ray's honesty,
peaceful disposition, and integrity in
the community and at home.
"He's a peaceful guy," said Albert
Kinsy, a friend of Ray's.
"Very kind and gentle," said another
friend of Ray's, Glinda Davis.
Ray's wife Rebecca took the stand
once again around noon Thursday, this
time for the defense. She recalled a
phone call she received from Jeffrey
Ray the day of Bailea's death.
"He was screaming 'She's not breath-
ing!" said Rebecca. She testified that
her husband was "hysterical" the day
of Bailea's death, contrary to testimony
earlier in the week that Ray seemed


f baby's

"unemotional" as Bailea was lifeflight-
ed to Shands UF in Gainesville.
"I've never seen him mad," Rebecca
said in defense of her husband.
"(Bailea was) sickly from the day she
was born."
Ray took the stand immediately fol-
lowing his wife's testimony. He testi-
fied that it was while feeding Bailea
formula that she "started spitting up"
and then stopped breathing.
"She (Bailea) was something else,"
Ray testified. "She was an angel."
Jacobsen later called Bailea "a silent
angel whose wrecked body speaks
louder than any other evidence."
When Ray wds asked by Jacobsen
who caused Bailea's injuries, he shook
his head as his faced flushed red.
"1 could have hurt her, I, I didn't
mean too," he said, punctuating his
statement with pauses. "I know I
screwed up. I should have paid atten-
tion letter in CPR class."
"You heard Dr. Rao (the medical ex-
aminer who testified earlier in the
week) say this was an inflicted in-


murder

jury?" Jacobsen asked, pointing to an
autopsy photo.
"Yes," said Ray.
"If you didn't cause that injury, that
Violence to that kid, who did?" said Ja-
cobsen.
"I don't know," said Ray.
During his final arguments Collins
said to the jury, "Isn't the state asking
you to speculate on this? There was no
motive."
Collins went on to say that Ray does
not possess the intelligence to have
staged the scene to make it appear that
* Bailea had spit up formula.
Ray now faces life in prison at his
Aug. 31 sentencing.
After Friday's verdicts, he was taken
into custody and led away by sheriffs
deputies to the county jail.

The prosecutor called the
infant "a silent angel
whose wrecked body
speaks louder than any
other evidence."


Jennings mourns loss of a friend


Sharron Wetherington loses


Former Jennings City
Clerk Sharron Wether-
ington. - Photo: Submitted

By Jo Ross
JASPER - Lifelong
Hamilton County resi-
dent Sharron Wether-
ington lost her battle
with a brain tumor on
July 6. Sharron faith-
fully served the town


of Jennings as city
clerk for the past 17
years and will be
missed by many.
For Sharron, her po-
.sition with the town
was more than a job. It
was truly her ministry.
Not only did she serve
in the professional ca-
pacity of her position,
she always had a smile
and kind word for
those she came in con-
tact with.
Born on June 13,
1944 to Kenneth and
Dot Smith, Sharron
Rose married the love
of her life, Michael
Wetherington, in 1962.
They had three chil-
dren, Antonia Adams
and Lee Wetherington-


a long battle
Zamora and Mike
Wetherington. In addi-
tion to her children, she
had 11 grand and great-
grandchildren.
- Her smile and will-
ingness to help others
will be greatly missed
by her co-workers at
City Hall and her
church famiily at the
Jennings Missionary
Baptist Church.

Jumping on the (broad)bandwagon

would mean for the area.
He said it would "attract
new businesses, improve
government services and
make broadband afford-
able to everyone."
In addition, "greater In-
ternet speed would be
available," and services
would create a "middle
mile" by opening the com-
munication pipeline to all
public and private entities,
he explained.
Council members and
other city leaders Tuesday


overwhelmingly favored
the plan, which involves
extending broadband infra-
structure throughout the
region.
"The way it was ex-
plained to me is that this
has been an economic hin-
drance to-some types of
business from coming
here," said Commission
Chairman Jesse Caruthers.
"If this is the case where
businesses are not looking
at our city because of this,
I see it as a piece of the
puzzle in helping to bring
industry here and compete

nations manager for Wind-
stream.
He, along with David Av-
ery, Windstream's corporate
spokesman, said that they
don't yet know what North
Florida Broadband Authori-
ty plans are for areas al-
ready covered by Wind-
stream DSL service.
"We don't know how that
would impact or involve
us," Avery said. "It's really
unknown at this time," he
said.
As a company, Wind-
stream has had its own
plans for years for broaden-
ing its coverage areas, Av-
ery said.
"We share the adminis-
tration's desire as well as
Congress' to employ
broadband to rural areas,"
he said. But as far as talks
between Windstream and
the Government Services
Group, there have been
none, Avery said. "We've
been working very hard to
understand the program."
James Robinson, the lo-
cal 911 coordinator for
Suwannee County, said he
thinks the idea of an ex-
panded broadband service
"is a positive thing."
"In all theory, if this in-
frastructure comes in we'll
all be linked into that one
service; that's some 11
counties," he said.
He said his only question
is: "What kind of firewall
would we have?"
The question of system
safety poses a concern for
him, he said.
Currently, the Suwannee
dispatch system is connect-
ed through the My Florida
Network, which links


Suwannee to Taylor,
Hamilton and Lafayette
counties.
"If my system crashes, it
defaults to Lafayette,"
Robinson said. Each
month, the 911 system ac-
cumulates a $595 surcharge
that is paid with grant mon-
ey, Robinson said.
"What I'm hoping is that
as this infrastructure comes
in, it will alleviate some of
the surcharge," Robinson
said.
The ability to provide
better dispatch, fire and
E.M.S. services is one of
"the big selling points" of
the broadband authority,
said Sherry Millington, the
technical services coordina-
tor for the Suwannee River
Regional Library.
Millington, who will
work closely with County
Coordinator Murphy
McLean to monitor
progress and who has sat
in on meetings about the
broadband extension pro-
gram, said Suwannee
County "is a very good
target area because we fall
within the federal govern-
ment's definition of un-
derserved and rural."
She added, "The U.S. is
way down on the list inter-
nationally when it comes to
the amount of broadband
that we offer and the price
of the service."
With an extended
pipeline through North
Florida, Suwannee County,
individuals and other enti-
ties, including the library,
could save from the bene-
fits of the system.
"What we would want to
do is take hold of bigger
broadband at a better
price," Millington said.


with the larger communi-
ties that so heavily rely on
that type of service."
County Coordinator
Murphy McLean, who will
represent Suwannee Coun-
ty on the Authority's board
of directors, said "we're
part of a big area that is
behind."
"This move will, number
one, allow us to compete
with industry and better
serve outlying areas."


He said the planned in-
frastructure would involve
the installation of "wire,
hard wire, fiber and wire-
less towers, including the
use of existing towers and
others that may need to be
upgraded."
"In this way," McLean
said, "we'll be more effi-
cient for competing with
larger cities like Jack-
sonville and Cedar Key."
As a part of the new ex-


tending broadband net-
work a number of "big In-
ternet pipelines" would
have to be laid throughout
the region, said Lien, the
government spokesman.
"Right now, we're basing
it on existing towers and
existing coverage. We an-
ticipate having to build
some new towers, but a
good indication of that is
the areas that don't current-
ly have cellular service,"


he said.
It is not certain how
long it may take for the
broadband program to get
approved for funding, Lien
said.
Thursday marked the
deadline to submit a
signed letter of support for
the program grant applica-
tion. Further information
will be made available as
it is released.

treat the tax dollars as a
business would. All of my
life I've grown up around
this area and I grew up in

you had a fire it was your
water hose that put it out. If
we have to go back to that
in order for us to not get
strangled to death by taxes,
I'm ready for it and I know
there's a lot of other people
that are too."
Winnett said he and his
supporters are tired of
wasteful government
spending and want some-
thing done about it.
"I encourage everyone in
the county to call their
commissioner and voice
their opinion. We don't

want them to (completely)
cut services. The most im-
portant thing is we want
them to stop wasting mon-
ey and treat it like a busi-
ness," Winnett said by
phone Wednesday. "After
that is done and if things
need to be cut, do whatever
it takes."
Winnett said he is not
part of any local group and
is asking for support simply
as a resident. He said his
number one goal is to con-
vince commissioners not to
raise the millage rate. Com-
missioners have set a tenta-
tive millage rate of 8.5 for
the 2009-10 fiscal year.
Last year's rate was 7.6.
Commissioners said that
if the rate falls below eight
mills, the county would not
be eligible for state grants.
"When it's 100 percent
grant you don't match that's
tough business to turn
down, and if we're not at
eight mills we can't apply
for it," said Caruthers.
"Somebody's going to get it
if we don't apply."
"Eight says we don't need
no help from the state, go
help someone else and I
don't think we're at that
point where we do not need
some help," said Commis-
sioner Douglas Udell.
Winnett said the level of
service that would suit him
would be one that does not
require a rate increase.
"If we have to go a few


years without some new
paved roads and without
some upgrades, we'll make
it. This is a farming com-
munity and we've toughed
it throiigh some hard times
in the pastWe can handle
some cuts if we have to,"
Winnett told commission-
ers.
"I understand the public
has asked for a lot of
things. They were spoiled
during the good times but
now they may have to get
used to dealing with a little
bit less. But a lot of us, es-
pecially in this county and
surrounding counties, are
ready to go back to the way
things used to be if that's
what it takes."
John Lacquey of Bran-
ford agrees the millage rate
needs to stay at 7.6 and
agrees that cutting some
services may be essential.
Lacquey published a paid
letter in the Suwannee De-
mocrat recently which he
asked citizens to sign and
return to him so he could
present them to commis-
sioners. The letter opposes
any tax increases and urges
commissioners to do what
needs to be done to keep
the tax rate the same. Lac-
quey has more than 800
signed letters (that figure
was verified by the Democ-
rat).
"We're not proposing to
slash all the services," said
Lacquey at Tuesday's meet-


ing. "What we're proposing
is keep the village rate at
7.6."
He added by phone
Thursday, "We believe that
there is enough fat to hold it
to 7.6, then if there isn't
then maybe we need to cut
a few services."
Public Safety Director
Charlie Conner said ser-
vices like EMS and fire res-
cue are stretched thin as is.
He said those services are
the last things on people's
minds most of the time.
However, "when you see
your child floating up and
down in the pool, all of a
sudden you want them to be
there instantly. We're
stretched thin right now
with just 40,000 folks in
Suwannee County," Conner
said Wednesday. "To reduce
services to save a few pen-
nies would be insane."
Conner told commission-
ers he was late for the after-
noon session of Tuesday's
meeting because he was on
a call in which a local man
was badly burned in a trac-
tor fire. He told commis-
sioners he believed the man
was grateful rescue services
hadn'tbeen cut to his home.
"Those people didn't
want to wait for services,
they wanted us there then.
He %\ as hurting and needed
us pretty quick," Conner
said by phone Wednesday.
"What about all these peo-
ple?"

Local boy

battles leukemia
Submitted
When August arrives it usually means that summer is
coming to an end, schools are about to start, vacations are
winding up, and a lot of us are gearing up for football sea-
son. For the family of Kade Lanier football is a divisive
issue. Some are 'Noles and some are Gator fans who
proudly wear their team colors to show team spirit. But
this year his family, friends and even some people he may
not know personally will be wearing orange for a special
reason. No, it's not for the UF Gators, but the orange
bracelets they wear is in support of Kade and his fight
against leukemia. The bracelet carries the message, "Say
it - Fight it - Cure it."
Kade was diagnosed with leukemia last month and sent
immediately to Shands UF. Tests were run, surgery was
performed and treatment was begun. After an extended
stay at the hospital, Kade has returned home, but now he
faces a long and slow treatment process. Doctors and fam-
ily members are very optimistic for a full recovery.
Kade is the son of Eric Lanier of Live Oak and Stacie
Baker of Jasper. Hal Lanier and Martha McGauley are
Kade's paternal grandparents and they both live in Suwan-
nee County and have for most of their lives. Family and
friends have united together in support and prayer for
Kade and his family, which is one of the many blessings
of living in a smaller community.
To help defray the tremendous medical related costs of
Kade's ordeal fundraising events have been planned.
There will be an all day event, in Jasper on Saturday,
Sept. 5, at the Hamilton County Rec Center. A softball
tournament is scheduled, vendors will be on hand, meals
will be served and lots of other activities are planned for
the day.
The theme is, "Krazy for Kade" and those that know
him will agree that's right. If you would like to be a part
of this event, or you would like to be a sponsor, please
contact Eric Lanier at 386-855-0305 or Victoria Ratliff at
386-855-0313. Or maybe you would like to be a part of
Kade's team by making a donation to a special account set
up for Kade at Lafayette State Bank. Either way, you can
help be part of the winning team in this cause. Thanks!

What you need to know




about swine flu


By Pamela Blackmon
Administrator
Suwannee County Health Department

Editor's note: Three cases of swine flu
were confirmed in Suwannee County
last week. No new cases have been con-
firmed since. Go to
suwanneedemocrat.com for the story.
Because the H1N1 virus, also called
swine flu, is in the county, it is impor-
tant for our citizens to know the symp-
toms of the infection, as well as what
people can do to protect themselves
from the virus. The Suwannee County,
Health Department has received many
phone calls from concerned citizens and
the media, including questions about the
people that have been infected. The
Health Department's focus is to protect


the health of the community while re-
specting the privacy of individuals. It is
important for the public to understand
how the virus is transmitted, what the
symptoms are, what to do if you think
you might have the virus, and how you
can protect yourself. This should be the
focus rather than who may or may not
be infected.
The H1N1 virus is spread through the
air from person to person. H1N1 is also
spread by touching contaminated sur-
faces, such as doorknobs. This virus
could be anywhere. Influenza does not
usually come during the summer
months, but the number of H1N1 cases
is increasing. The CDC estimates that'
there 'Hae:been one million cases world-
widb. Fl8trida has 3,321 confirmed cas-
es, but it is estimated that there have ac-


tually been 60,000 cases. This illness is
very widespread and doctors are no
longer doing laboratory testing unless
the patient is hospitalized or there is an
outbreak of connected cases.
Most of the illnesses with H1N1 have
been relatively mild and there have been
fewer deaths than was predicted. Symp-
toms of the novel H1N1 flu are similar
to the symptoms of regular seasonal flu
and include fever greater than 100' F,
cough, sore throat, body aches,
headache, chills, and fatigue. Some peo-
ple may also have diarrhea and vomit-
ing. If you think you may be ill with
H1N1, you should stay home from work
or school to avoid spreading this infec-
tion to others in the community.
To slow the spread of H1N1, people
should avoid close contact with people


who are coughing or otherwise appear
ill. They should also wash their hands
frequently, and cough or sneeze into
their elbow or cover their cough/sneeze
with a tissue. When school starts back
in a few weeks it is anticipated that there
will be more people sick with H1N1.
An H1N1 vaccine is currently being
developed and tested in the United
States and other countries. The vaccine
should be available for high-risk persons
in the fall of 2009. The Suwannee
County Health Department is preparing
a vaccine plan and is working closely
with community partners to provide this
vaccine. It is important that residents
stay informed about the virus and what
they can do to protect themselves and
their families without unnecessary
alarm.


Allen Boyd to hold


town hall in Live Oak


:U.S. Congressman Alien Boyd (D-North Florida) will
host a community forum at the Live Oak City Hall An-
nex at 1:30 pm on Wednesday, August 12. Boyd will be
speaking about the economy as well as the healthcare
debate in Congress. The forum also will give the people
of Suwannee County the opportunity to ask questions on
various issues of local, state, and national importance.
-"Like many people in North Florida, I know that re-
sponsible healthcare reform is needed, but it must be
done right," said Boyd. "I felt it was important to take
the month of August to meet with people across the dis-
trict and discuss the proposed healthcare legislation that
is being debated in Congress. This community forum
will be an opportunity for me to hear from the people of
Spwannee County about what they want to see out of


comprehensive healthcare reform and answer their ques-
tions."
For further questions, contact Boyd's Tallahassee Of-
fice at 850-561-3979.

one of the first emergency workers at the scene.
Jody Jenkins, the burned man's brother, said a plug
was undone on the side of the John Deere as gas
drained out.
"Jack was checking the wheel on the side, he twist-
ed it and it sparked and caught fire," he said.
Rudy Galo, the burned man's brother-in-law, said he
fought to extinguish the fire.that engulfed Jack Jenk-
ins.


"Jack ran over to that outside sink," said Galo,
pointing to a white sink in the Jenkins' backyard.
"It was all over his body," Galo said. "He got down
and rolled on the ground. I tried to fan him out and
pulled his shirt off."
Soon after, a fire truck and paramedics showed up
at the scene to aide Jenkins. He was loaded into an
ambulance and was transported to Shands at UF,- ac-
cording to Conner.
Jenkins was listed in good condition Thursday at
Shands UF.

The city is certainly to
be commended for main-
taining the round about and
the landscaping of it too. It
is a source of pride for the
city and it is a good con-
versation piece for visitors.
Thank you.


I am tired of reading
about the wet dry situation
in the county. If someone
will step up and take the
leadership position I will
immediately identify my-
self and help them collect
the necessary signatures to
place the issue on the bal-
lot.


Caution, caution, cau-
tion. Our country is being
taking over by elected offi-
cials who'no longer have
the people's interests at
heart. Instead their motive
is re-election to a tax-payer
founded job, to make them
rich and keep them in pow-
er. Wake up, American tax-


payer.

I have a rant and a rave.
I would like to thank the
Suwannee Democrat for
having this column where
people can express their
opinions about things go-
ing on in the community.

cohol sales. Why can't we
buy alcohol on Saturday
and save it for Sunday?
God must be somewhere,
banging his head on a ce-
lestial wall, crying, won-
dering how he created so
many idiots.

Thank you Councilman
Hale for your concern
about home invasions. It
would have been nicer to
have a joint statement from
the Mayor and entire city
council.

Seems like lately more
"ranters" are wondering
about the alcohol issue and
now homeowners will be
paying more taxes. Could
be our Commissioners are
afraid they can't be reelect-
ed if they vote to serve al-
cohol and keep more busi-
ness at home. It isn't like
we don't have DUI's and
accidents. Wake up Coun-
ty Commissioners and face
the facts or else ban beer
sales in Suwannee County.
Don't be so hypocritical!!!

Could someone please
tell me what they are trying


to do at City Hall. Are they
building a fort? Why are
we paying $5 a month for
repairs when the city got
$5 million dollars worth of
government money to fix
it.

Just a reminder to City
Councilman Flip Flop. Re-
member you are going to
bid out the public works in
4 months. I don't want you
to get to the end of the year
and then say we are going
to bid it out but we are not
going to bid it out right
now because we don't have
enough time.

another hole to have to dig my-
self out of.
It's getting close to that time
again. I met with representatives
of the Garden Club and Artist
Guild this week to begin making
plans for the Fall Harvest Festi-
val. As you remember, the town BY SONN
is decorated with corn stalks, rib-
bons, and yes scarecrows. Many activities are being
planned at the Garden Club building and the down-
town area.
The new seatbelt law has been in effect now for a
month. I have harped at you for seven years in my
"Mayor's Corner" encouraging you to wear your seat-
belts. Hopefully my ranting and the new law have
caused more people to wear their belts. It is a proven
fact that seatbelt use saves lives and prevents more se-
rious injuries in traffic crashes. In July, the LOPD is-
sued seven citations and eleven warnings. Poof, there
goes $118.. Wear your belt.
Even with the sluggish economy, new businesses are
opening in the city. Yes, there have been a few clos-
ings also. It is important to our community's welfare
that local businesses are successful. I again encourage
you to spend as many of your dollars as possible local-
ly. Some of your shopping has to be done out of town
but it is important to everyone that as much as possi-
ble be done in our community. It is in the best interest
of business owners that you make your establishments
more attractive so folks will be drawn to your busi-
ness. A little fixing up goes a long way.
The handicap and security upgrade to City Hall, the

It was my pleasure to present

Freak show and extreme


wrestling coming to Live Oak


By Tommy Dame
Extreme Pro Wrestling

Extreme Pro Wrestling is com-
ing to Live Oak Sunday, Aug. 9 at
7 p.m. at the Spirit of Suwannee
Music Park with the Wrestling
Freak Show Tour.
Six extreme and bizarre matches
featuring midgets, drag queens,
clowns and hair versus hair match
where the loser of the match will
get his head shaved in the center
of the ring. The main event of the


evening will be a special one.
Fans get to bring the weapons.
Fans are encouraged to bring al-
most anything imaginable (no
guns or knives please) for the
wrestlers to use on each other dur-
ing the match. We've had fans
bring' cooking sheets, computer
keyboards, crutches, anything and
everything except the kitchen
sink. Use your imagination.
The Freak Show is not a regular
wrestling show. It is a mixture of
high flying wrestling, hardcore


wrestling, comedy, theatrics and
parody ring announcers. It's a mix
between professional wrestling
and the circus. It's an edge of your
seat thrill ride that you have to see
to believe. The Freak Show is the
most bizarre show that Live Oak
will ever see and is family friend-
ly and safe for all ages.
Doors open at 6 p.m.; show
starts at 7 p.m. There will be free
autograph and picture sessions
during the intermission for the
kids.


oportauuu )
BybTom Daniels
As baseball players begin to deal with end of the sea-
son injuries, football players are just beginning to get
theirs. Writers, however, deal with the pain on a regular
basis, Just when you thought you were fighting for
truth, justice and the American Way you get ranted.
You toughen up and move on.
SModern medicine has made it easier for today's ath-
lete. If they had arthroscopic surgery in the 60s perhaps
guys like Tucker Fredrickson and Gale Sayers would
:have rewritten some records. Would microsurgery have
saved Mickey Mantle's knees? He bought a year with a
liver transplant. How many pitchers could have been
saved, with Tommy John surgery? We will never know,
but Willis McGahee, Kerry Wood and even Shaq are
but a few of the athletes who can continue to make
money because of modern medicine. Ope could even
argue that Jose Canseco is making money through
modem science.
The luxuries of these medical miracles have no paral-
lels in sports Writing. Jerry Izenberg, Red Smith and
Dick Youpg were all struck at one time or another with
the,dk .8)e(jOO Jat they all wrote in the New
York metropolitan area made their illness less apparent.
When you ran olt.dhflie Mets, Jets, Giants, Yanks,
Knicks, Rangers, Devils, Islanders, Nets, Rutgers, Se-
ton Hall, St. Johns. C.W. Post and Hofstra you could
always tell everybody about the boat show or that the
circus was at the Garden.
I could talk about Tebow, another Heisman? Bowden,
will they take away the wins? The up and coming Cen-
tral and South Florida. The demise of the Hurricanes,
the rise of the Rattlers? Will we ever see an all-Florida
World Series? How does ice hockey survive in Florida?
Which major city in Florida doesn't have a major sports
draw? Are the Dolphins for real? You can always write
about Rickey. Could the Jaguars be leaving the Sun-
shine State? Who is the new coach of the Bucs?
How about the national scene. Tiger wins and no one
wants Vick. Yankees and Red Sox still going at it. Can
Albert Pujols win the Triple Crown. Whatever hap-
pened to Bo? How do the Gators pay their football
coach 4 million dollars a year? How can you make 4
million dollars a year and only be the fifth highest paid
college football coach? Does downsizing GM affect
athletes' residual income?
Keeping this is mind perhaps it isn't cramps' but just
the inability to decide: Seminoles, Gators, Knights,
Bulls, Hurricanes, Bulldogs, Rays, Marlins, Bucs,
Jaguars, Dolphins, Rattlers, Magic, Lightning, Heat....

First ARCA RE/MAX Series podium finish


continues

Third-Place finish a
Raceway gives Goe
en route to first seri


When Craig Goess and
his Eddie Sharp racing
team unloaded the #81
Greenville Toyota Camry
at Pocono Raceway (PA)
for the ARCA RE/MAX
Series 200-lap event, they
knew that he was gunning
for a strong run, including
driving towards his first
win of his rookie season in
the series. Running in the
top five for, the entire
event, it looked like a vic-
tory. could be in reach and
even though Goess wasn't
quite able to pull off that
victory, he crossed .the line
in third, his highest finish-
ing position to date in the
series.
Weather has been an is-
sue for the ARCA
RE/MAX Series this year,
raining out multiple quali-
fying efforts and shorten-
ing practice at tracks.
Pocono wasn't an excep-
tion as the field had to start
by owner's points due to
qualifying being rained
out. Still though, Goess
was able to get some track
time to try and make his
cat better for the race.
"The car was pretty tight
all through practice and we
didn't want to do anything
too drastic, so we kept
working at it a little bit at a
time when we came in,"
explained Goess. "It got
somewhat better, but the
motor felt like it was down
on power. We were trying
a different package with it.
We ended up changing a
gear to get a little more
RPMs and that seemed to
help it a little,
"After practice we felt
like we had about an
eighth or ninth-place car
and we weren't happy with*
that, so we did some fairly
aggressive changes to
make it better. We swapped
out some front springs and


a stro

it Pocono
:ss boost
es victory


changed the intake on the
motor. Luckily the changes
we made paid off as the
car was better. The only
thing we were missing was
the original gear. If we
would have had that, we
might have improved pur
position (during the race)"
Starting from the sixth
position, Goess moved into
the top five and maintained
his position throughout the
race, despite not having the
right gear in the car.
"We had*,.toff cau-
tions in the beginning, and
it seemed like we could
never get going," said
Goess. "We only made one
pit stop and freed the car
up a little bit. We stayed in
the top-five mix pretty
much the whole day. That
gear was hurting us - we
were just running out of
gear going into turn one.
We had about 500 yards
where we were flat and
everyone else pulled us a
little. We tried to make up
time in other areas." I
Goess has been running
well heading into the later
stages of the races this sea-
son, but, in many events,
something strikes Goess,
making him have to fight
tooth and nail to get back
towards the front by the
time the checkered flag
flies. It almost happened
again as two cars in front
of him made contact,
putting Goess into avoid-
ance mode, but he made
the right lane choice, got
by and finished third.
"For once, nothing weird
happened that prevented us
from having a strong fin- ,
ish. Everything went pretty
smooth up to the end of the
race. A couple of the cars
had fresher tires than us at
the end. The #77 (Parker
Kligerman) got by us and I
was behind him and the


* C e -
.


ng rookie
#25 (Steve Arpin). He vi
(Kligerman) got by the #25 le
and got to second and p]
coming out of three the fi
#25 got into him and tr
turned him. Luckily I went
the right way. I could have re
gone high or low at the to
time and I chose to go low, w
and that was the way to get sp
by as the #77 tore up his w
car pretty good by hitting or
the wall. h(
"All in all, everyone was th
real happy with the way fc
the weekend turned out for
us." ra


Even though Goess
would have liked to enter

victory lane at this point at
east once this season, he is
leased with his third-place
nish and his results on the
ack every week.
"We are happy with our
sults lately. We just need
i continue to improve and
e do not have many more
)ots to go before getting a
in. I think we have eight
Nine more races, so
hopefully before the end of
he year we will contend
)r one."
In just his first year of
cing in the ARCA
E/MAX Series, Goess
irrently. sits fourth in sea-


son points as he looks to tion, Goess and the Eddie


wrap up this year within
the top five and maybe
even the top three by sea-
son's end.
"You have Justin Lofton
in there and it is his second
year," said Goess. "Kliger-
man is in there and is hav-
ing an excellent year and
Frank Kimmel is there. We
are sitting right behind
them, so I don't think that
is too shabby. I think that
is commendable for our
first year."
While the ARCA
RE/MAX Series takes a
*break from the on-track ac-


Sharp Racing team will
spend the next few weeks
testing at places like New

continue to improve their
performance on race day.
Goess will return to the

Cool iDo iwn Lap


Editor's note: Welcome to the "Cool Down
Lap, " stock car racing's Monday morning quar-
terback, offered by author/sportswriter Alan
Ross. This weekly column looks at all things
NASCAR in cryptic commentary, on everything
from problems with Sprint Cup's Chase to the
heated skinny on current drivers to.pointed
barbs at NASCAR's constant rules tinkering to
nostalgic looks back at the sport's colorful his-
tory.


Ross is the author of more than 20 books, on
sports. history and is a former writer for Track
Record magazine, which follows the Team
Lowe's 31 car around, the Nextel Cup circuit.
His articles on auto racing have appeared in
The Nashville City Paper and in newspaper
syndication.
During the NASCAR off-season, Alan Ross
writes an NFL column called Over the Ball. The
Cool Down Lap:


Push-to-Pass next for NASCAR?


By Alan Ross
Rain in Pocono. It is an
oft-recurring theme
falling over the summer-
time mountains of eastern
Pennsylvania. It is also
the sound of yet another
postponed race at Pocono
Speedway. And we've
heard that tune before.
Oh, did someone say
rain tire?
NASCAR clipped a
cool three and half hours
off ESPN's afternoon
broadcast schedule Sun-
,day. No, not ripping up
the pavement at Pocono
in a breathtaking 500-mil-
er but hunkered down in
off-on rain conditions, al-'


beit under continuous
track drying efforts. It's
hard not to appreciate the
. on-the-fly job.skillfully
executed by broadcasters
charged with the dreaded
business of killing time. A
lot of time.
In the wash of the rain
at Pocono, a new modifi-
cation in the IndyCar Se-
ries debuted Saturday
night at Kentucky Speed-
way in the Kentucky Indy
300, a thrilling race that
ended with a hab-to-hub,
nose-to-nose dogfight the
final nine laps to.the fin-
ish line. Ed Carpenter lost
a bid for his first series
victory, nicked by a
thread at the end by
Penske's Ryan Briscoe. It
was the seventh closest
finish in IndyCar history,
the winning margin:
0.0162 of a second.
, But the big unveiling
was the series debut of its
Push-to-Pass Honda
Overtake button, a dash-
board feature with the
same end result of Fl's
KERS System-a quick
burst of power for over-


taking. Drivers are limited
to using it 20 times in the
race, which inevitably
plays into race strategy in
the closing laps. When
the switch is flipped, it's
in the overtake mode for
12 seconds. It then takes
.10 seconds at least-to
recharge. The new propul-
sion feature clearly put
some zip. into passing, a
critical element in any
good racing mix. Of
course, the passed car can
challenge right back at
the next turn, since all
have the same Push-to-
Pass'button. The series'
promoters seemed to
think it was successful. It
did add pizzazz, and
you'd assume, immediate-
ly becomes integrated
into all future racing strat-
egy.
Wouldn't NASCAR
fans step right up to see a
little super booster capa-
bility on their favorite
racecars, gassing it com-
. ing off the.vertical banks
of Talladega! Well, likely
hard to do with a restric-
tor plate on. But it could


work at the other tracks,
especially on the road
courses and certainly on
the longer, flatter ovals
like Pocono. Rocket men
of NASCAR! Start your
engines!
ROADSIDE RAVES:.
Formula One has pulled a
Lance Armstrong. Grand
Prix racing's premier re-
tiree, Michael Schumach-
er, is coming out of moth-
balls after two and a half
seasons to don the red of
Ferrari for the 'upcoming
European Grand Prix in
three weeks, sblhbing for
injured driver Felipe Mas-
sa, who sustained head in-
juries after being hit in
the helmet by a piece of
track debris July 26 at the
Hpngarian Grand Prix.

Impurity

The second of the works of the flesh mentioned by Paul in his
epistle to the Galatians is impurity, which is a translation of
the Greek word "akatharsia." The word "akatharsia" originally
referred to something being literally dirty or unclean.
However, in the Greek Old
Testament it referred to ritual
uncleanness, which prevented a
person, such as a menstruating
woman, from approaching the
temple or engaging in religious
\ rituals. Jesus and his disciples were
accused of "akatharsia" by the
Pharisees when they ate without
washing their hands. (Mark 7.1-6)
Jesus responded to the Pharisees by
telling them that- they were

the law, but failing to realize that it
is not what goes into one's mouth
that makes them impure, but rather
what comes out of their mouth,
since our words have their source in our hearts. Impurity,
then, is more property considered not the literal uncleanness
of our bodies, but the metaphorical impurity of our hearts and
minds. Impurity, therefore, is a work of the flesh which taints
the whole person. Our hearts, minds and personalities become
defiled by impure thoughts and deeds. We should each
prayerfully consider whether our hearts and minds are pure,
and strive to rid ourselves of impure thoughts.


For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, fornication,
theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, licentiousness, envy,
slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they
defile a man.

ly A popular idea, no doubt,
but what does this concept
ble really accomplish when it
comes to our relationships?
id At first glance, this saying
promotes an illusion that
this is the way to be in con-
trol of a painful situation. In
reality, if there is no com-
munication with the one
who has offended us, we
may assume that the offense
was intentional. We are an-
gry and believe the person
actually meant us harm.
Think about a time when
you discovered that you had
hurt someone's feelings or
offended them...maybe you
were surprised because
rarely is it our motive to do
so. More often we hurt oth-
er people as a result of an
unintentional action or a
thoughtless comment. I be-
lieve this is the case in the
majority of offenses, and
based on that, getting even
would be anything but get-
ting even. You can't arrive
at "getting even" by adding
an unintentional offense to
a well-planned retaliation!
Unfortunately, revenge usu-
j ally leads to a retaliation of
s its own and the vicious pay-
back cycle continues. This

Recently, I and some

having a good time. Even
my two daughters, my son

got in on the plan. In fact,
the only person not in on

prejudiced sentence. The.
last part of this passage! is
most interesting, but before
you go planning to put lot
coals on someone's head
let's understand what tis
refers to. According to 9an
ancient Egyptian traditiQn,
a person desiring to exhibit
a public display of repen-'
tance would carry a pan of
burning charcoal on their.
head. By referring to this
practice, the apostle Paul is
saying that we should tr4at 1
those who have offended us
or caused us pain with kind-
ness. By doing so, it is more
likely they will become i
ashamed of the way they:
treated you, repent, andi
change their ways. This
would be a much more pro-
ductive way of restoring a
relationship...and if their of-
fense was unintentional,
you haven't caused a much '
bigger one.
So, the next time you Ie-
come angry and start plot-.
ting revenge, remember that '
it's best to leave that upito

Smokey
Since his birth on Aug. 9, 1944,
Smokey Bear hasn't aged a day. Although
celebrating his 65th birthday this year,
Smokey has no plans to retire. Since
1944, Smokey has educated generations
of Americans about their critical role in
wildfire prevention through his enduring
message, "Only You Can Prevent Wild-
fires."
To celebrate the grand occasion, The
Suwannee Forestry Center, Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry is joining with the Osceo-
la Ranger District, U.S. Forest Service to
honor Smokey with a birthday party. The


Bear celebrates 65th birthday


party will take place'at Olustee Beach at
Ocean Pond in the Osceola National For-
est Saturday, Aug. 15 from 10 a.m. until 4
p.m. Kids of all ages are welcome to join
us for food, fun and exhibits. Smokey will
be there to meet his friends. Admission to
the beach and all activities are free.
"Smokey has worked hard for the last
65 years to protect pur forests and wild-
lands. It's only right that we should cele-
brate his birthday with a big party." said
Operations Administrator for Suwannee
Forestry Center Glenn, Davis. "We invite
everyone in our area to share in'this cele-


bration."
For the past 65 years, Smokey Bear has
been the face of wildfire prevention as
part of the longest-running public service
advertising campaign in U.S. history. He
is the recognized symbol of conservation
and protection of America's forests. In
fact, he has been rated one of the most
recognizable figures in America, ranking
right alongside Mickey Mouse and Santa
Clause. He is recognized by 97 percent of
adults and three out of four are able to re-
cite his trademark slogan without prompt-
ing, according to an Ad Council tracking


survey.
Smokey has helped reduce the number
of acres burned annually by wildfires
from about 22 million in 1944 to an aver-
age of 7 million today. Still, his message
is as important and timely today as it ever
was. Even after all of Smokey's good
work, nine out of 10 wildfires are still
started by humans. Human education
must continue and Smokey is just the bear
for the job.

Continued From Page 6B

The basic ruse that we
used was a retirement party
for one of the men in the
congregation. If we tried
planning a party without
involving my wife, it
would have been a disaster.
She has a nose that can
smell something five
months away. So, if was a.
retirement party in full
swing and for the last few
weeks, all anybody talked
about was, the alleged re-
tirement party.
For a month leading up
to the party my wife kept
asking me, "What do you
get someone who is retir-
ing?" She never suspected
a thing and the surprise el-
ement was at the top of our
game. The reason it was so
successful is that all of us
were pretty good liars.
. For example, the day be-
fore the .party, I had to
sneak to Tampa, which is
abouttwo hours away, then
sneak back into town my
son and his family without
arousing the suspicion of
you know who.
"What you have planned
for today?" My wife
queried that morning.
"Oh," I stammered try-
ing to be very careful with
m\ w ording, '[ 'got 4to-go
do'. nto\o n and pay some
bills."
"Will you be home for
lunch?"
"No, I have a lot to do;
I'll- catch a bite of'lunch


downtown."
That was the end of it.
Fortunately, it was a busy
week for both of us and we
were pretty much going in
separate directions. It took
two hours to drive to the
Tampa airport, two hours
back and one hour fooling
around so whole trip would
take five hours.
Halfway back, from the
airport my cell phone rang
and it was my wife check-
ing up on me.
"Where are you now?"
She asked.
Lying is a very difficult
thing to do. I never knew
just how hard it was be-
fore, because when you tell
one lie, it takes a half a
dozen other lies to support
the first lie.
Being a novice at this I
simply said, "I'm finishing
up my errands and will
soon be home." All the
time I am trying to keep
four little children in the
back seat quiet, so they
would not. spoil the sur-
prise. When I hung up the
cell phone, I sighed a deep
sigh promising myself I
wopld never lie again. It is
just too plain hard to lie.
I successfully smuggled
my son and his family into
town and got them settled
4nin their accommodations
so that nobody would
know they were in town.
By nobody, I had only one
person in mind. My two
daughters, knew about this
and were eager, too eager,


to help in the deception. I
am wondering where they
learned to lie so.
On the way from the
Tampa airport, the grand-
children in the back seat
did so many hilarious
things that it was all I could
do to keep from telling my
wife about their antics
while, we were eating sup-
per that night.
Finally, the time arrived
for my wife and me to go to.


the "retirement party." I
was never so anxious for a
party to begin than this one.
As soon as we opened the
door everybody yelled,
"Surprise, surprise and hap-
py birthday."
She sure was surprised.
But that was only the first
surprise.
About a half-hour later,
our son and his family from
Ohio just happened to
come through the front


door and surprise her again.
This began a very de-,
lightful weekend celebrat-
ing someone's birthday.
After everything was
over; I turned to my Bible
and read; -''Confess your
faults one to another, and
pray one for another, that
ye may be healed. The ef-
fectual fervent prayer of a
righteous man availeth
much." (James 5:16 KJV).
Everyone has faults and


confession is the only way
to have a good time.
