 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.

Fear and anger. Those were the
dominant emotions of the 200 or
so members of Live Oak's
Hispanic community attending a
meeting with-local police at John
Hale Park Monday night. The
meeting was held to address the
string ot home invasion robberies
that have targeted the Hispanic
commiuntv since December. The
number of such crimes now stands

told the Democrat. "My children

but no\\ they're sleeping with
me.
Mya-Duran has 10-year-old twin
boys.
"I'm too scared to let them out,
they see people coming down the
Road and they run into the house,"
she added. "It's not easy."
One w oman, a victim of:ahome

Commissioners to oversee

staffing needs in Suwannee
Will make hiring decisions on case-by-case basis

A move last Tuesday by the
Suwannee County Commission
to oversee staffing needs did not
sit well with one commissioner,
who said the action would harm
the board's relationship with
department heads. ,.
Commissioners approved a
measure that would require
board approval before anyone is
hired for a county job.


Promotions would have to be
approved as well.
"There needs to be a notion of
trust," said Commissioner
Douglas Udell.
Udell said the board hires
department heads it trusts to

taking away this part of their

The Safety Line
from Suwannee County Fire Rescue


Automatic sprinkler systems, residential and domestic


By Paul M. Haas
Suwannee County Fire
Marshal

There have been
increases attention to the
pending requirements that
all new residential one and
two family dwellings have
sprinkler systems installed.
The most recent meeting of
the National Fire
Protection Association
(NFPA) focused debate on
this issue, and
recommended sweeping
changes to the proposed
code. One of the
significant recommended
changes was allowing the
use of 130 psi-rated cross-
linked polyethylene (PEX)
piping in certain
installations. Allowing
PEX pipe to be used in the
one and two family
dwelling sprinkler system
would greatly reduce the
overall cost of the system,
and make the system more
affordable. The state of
Florida does not require
newly constructed
residential one and two
family homes to be


sprinkled. However, with
all of the studies, data, and
lobbying from both the fire
and insurance experts, it is
just a matter of time before
Florida homes will have to
meet this safety
requirement.
Educating the public on
the importance of sprinkler
systems is a must, if we are
to be successful in saving
both life and property from
fires. Currently, the cost of
adding an automatic
sprinkler system to the
plans for a future new
home is around $1.61 per
square foot. If PEX piping
is used, the cost per square
foot will be greatly
reduced.
Now if you plan to build
a large, 4,000 square foot
home, the estimated cost of
the system would be
around $6440 (under
current coded requirements
and not using PEX pipe). If
you install the automatic
sprinkler system the
reduction in you home
insurance premium will be
significant and over time
will pay for itself.


Ask a lawyer


The factor of safety for
your family and property is
monumental. Fire most
often begins its life of
destruction as small and
initially controllable.
Automatic sprinkler
systems have proven their
worth when it comes to
controlling incipient fires,
saving lives, and reducing
property damages. Time
equals fire growth, and the
rural setting predisposes
homes to fire losses due to
longer fire department
response times. It is just a
fact of life and economics.
When we build in rural
areas, we lose or reduce the
effectiveness of quick fire
and emergency response.
The national average for
fire and emergency
response is about five
minutes. This response
time average includes all of
the metropolitan and urban
response times for the
nation, and does not truly
reflect the rural or urban
interface response times. In
reality, the average
response time in the rural
setting can be as much as
10 to 15 minutes. Fire
growth can multiply by a
factor of 10 from initial
discovery to the time of the


first fire engine's arrival.
The average doublewide
mobile or manufactured
home will burn to the
ground within 15 to 20
minutes. This the primary
reason why the NFPA and
the insurance industry are
pushing for mandated
instillation of automatic
sprinkler systems in
manufactured housing.
Now back to the cost.
The estimated cost of
installing a sprinkler
system at the factory for an
average size manufactured
home is about $3864. It has
been the cost factor that
has stalemated the drive for


nationwide acceptance. But
folks often fail to
understand that once the
code is implemented the
factor of supply and
demand will reduce the
overall cost. Once millions
if not billions of systems
are demanded the cost of
those systems will fall. At
this time the domestic or
residential automatic
sprinkler system is an after
market add-on. Once it
becomes a coded
requirement the demand
will force competitive
pricing among the industry
suppliers and installers.

"A JUDGMENT HAS
BEEN ENTERED
AGAINST ME BECAUSE
OF A CREDIT CARD
DEBT. I LOST MY JOB
AND CAN'T PAY IT.
WHAT CAN THEY DO TO
ME?

V.. of Live Oak asks, "I
lost my job a few months.
ago-and fell behind on my
payments. I was sued by one
of the credit card companies
and now they have a
judgment against me,. What,
can they do to me?

Dear V.E:
The short answer is...a
lot..Though there are some
exemptions provided by law
which limit what a creditor
can collect from a debtor to
satisfy a judgment, which
will be discussed in next
month's "Ask a Lawyer"
column, one of the first
Things people fear is that
their wages will be
garnished, which means the
employer is required to
withhold moneys from a
paycheck and give it to the
creditor, and that is ONE of
the many options available
to a creditor. In your case,
* since you don't have ajob
right now, they can't do that,
but once you get a job, they
can. There are limits to how
much can be taken from a
paycheck, but garnishment
of wages can continue until
the judgment is satisfied in
full.
I expect that you received
a "Fact Information Sheet"
from the clerk of court after
the judgment was entered
against you which required
you to provide the creditor
with a sworn statement of
your income and assets. A
Judge undoubtedly
ORDERED you to provide
that information to the
creditor. If you fail to do so,
the creditor can go back to
the Judge and make you do
so. Also, the creditor can
take your deposition, called a
"Deposition in Aid of
Execution on a Judgment"
and ask you questions about
what income and assets you
have.
Another very common
method of "executing" on a
judgment is to simply
"seize" any bank accounts
you may have, checking or
savings. Once a creditor
knows where you keep your
money, they have a right,
S within limits, to take
virtually everything you
have in such accounts.


Again, the exemptions will
be discussed next month.
Yet another way of
satisfying a judgment is to
"attach" property. A creditor
can get a Sheriff to go out
and pick up property to
satisfy a debt, such as a car
that is paid for, or a boat, or a
tractor, and then have the
property sold with the
Proceeds going to the
creditor. If moneys are left
over from the sale, after
expenses are paid, the debtor
Si'to receive'thatmoney '
back, but that rarely
happens.
The single most common
way of "securing" a
judgment is to record the
judgment in the county in
which you live and ownr real
estate. A recorded judgment
becomes a lien on real
property you may'own and if
you sell that property within
ten (10) years of the date on
which the judgment was
entered, the judgment will be
satisfied from the proceeds
of the sale. Another common
method of satisfying a
judgment is to file suit to
foreclose on land that is not
protected by a "Homestead
Exemption."
Judgments are valid for up
to twenty (20) years, as a
general rule, but sometimes
they must be "renewed" to
remain valid. Judgments
always hurt your credit
rating and make it more
difficult for you to get a loan.
When faced with a
judgment, or multiple
judgments, the first thing
people usually think of is
seeking protection under our
Bankruptcy laws, but that
costs money, too, and that
will definitely hurt your
credit for years. Some
people are what is called
"Judgment Proof," and do
not need to file for

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
season. 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 family 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 Suwannee
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 setup
for Kade at Lafayette State Bank. Either way, you can help be part of the winning team
in this cause. Thanks!

Teen fads

By Jim Holmes
I've always been interested in teen fads. You
know those things kids do that drive their elders
nuts!
I got to be thinking about it again the other day
when my wife and I were at a Suwannee Valley.
fast food restaurant and a young man - his pants
down below his buttocks - walked in and placed
an order. As I have seen that fad so often -and
at least this guy wore nice underwear - I didn't
think twice about. That is until the teen tried to
fill his drink cup with one hand, while the other
was occupied with a huge bag of burgers'and
fries.
He was in a pickle! Either go without the drink
or let go of his britches and surrender "cool" for
"fool."
Well, necessity is the mother of invention and.
so our young man started spreading his legs far-
ther and farther apart, until they finally reached
the point where it looked like he was about to
mount a Budweiser Clydesdale. From the waist
down, think the Great Pyramid.
I smiled to myself and wondered, "If this young
man could see himself from my angle, what
would he think?"
I know what he'll think when he's 65. You see,
if I wasn't that young man 50-years ago, it was
only because my father was particularly.strict and
somehow had much more- control over me than
seems to be the case among today's teens. Back
then, a hit upside the head was not child abuse. It
was just a way to get a kid's attention. Heck, I
think my father considered it an expression of en-
dearment.
Boy, I remember wanting to have hair like
Elvis! That, however, was not about to happen
in my father's house. After all, he knew for a
FACT that Elvis was the Anti-Christ or at least his
agent and "that rock & roll crap" - his words -
would be the ruination of the USA. For me, it
would be a flattop, no matter how much I hated it.
I guess at this point I should explain that with my
light blond, nearly shaved head, I bore a striking
resemblance to a less-muscled version of the car-
toon character oh a bottle of Mr. Clean.
Small wonder I almost never had a date until
college!
On the other hand, my father did let me buy
motorcycle boots like Elvis's. I suspect because
he didn't realize the pop star wore them. He was
just a practical man, who barely survived the
Great Depression, and thought I might have final-
ly found a pair of shoes I couldn't wear out in a
matter of weeks.
As for me, I also had a practical reason for
wanting those boots that went beyond being an
Elvis fan. In my early teens, I still hadn't got my
growth and every girl in class was a head taller
than me. The boots helped a little.
Unfortunately, I really needed a pair with six-


inch heels, which admittedly, would have sent an
extremely mixed message to my teen peers.

OPINION


From my collection of


By Dwain Walden
I've mentioned
on many occa-
sions that I'm a
dog lover. They
are great listen-
ers, slow to judge
and quick to for-
give. And it has
always been my prayer, "God help
me to be the person my dog thinks I
am."
I tend to agree with those people
who say, "There are no bad dogs,
only bad owners."
And so over the years I've col-
lected a lot of sayings about dogs. I
will share a few of these gems with
you.
- There is no psychiatrist in the
world like a puppy licking your
face. (Ben Williams)
- The average dog is a nicer per-
son than the average person. (Andy
Rooney)
- Anybody who doesn't know
what soap tastes like never washed
a dog. (Franklin Jones)
- If your dog is fat, you are not
getting enough exercise. (Unknown)
- If you pick up a starving dog
and make him prosperous, he will
not bite you; that is the principal
difference between a dog and a


man. (Mark Twain)
- Dogs are not our whole life, but
they make our lives whole. (Roger
Caras)
- If you think dogs can't count,
try putting three dog biscuits in your
pocket and then give him only two
of them. (Phil Pastoret)
- The ideal watchdog would be a
150-pound Chihuahua. (Unknown)
And perhaps my favorite of all is
- A dog teaches a boy fidelity, per-
severance, and to turn around three
times before lying down." (Robert
Benchley)
I recall once when I had been bird
hunting and returned home in the
night. I had to take a detour on
roads I had never been on. I got
lost. I further complicated the mat-
ter by taking what 1 thought was a
shortcut. Things look much different
at night, particularly things you've
never seen before.
At one point, I didn't even know
what county I.was in. My Britany
"Fancy" was riding shotgun but she
had gone to sleep. At some point
she awoke, probably hearing me
mumbling about not having a clue
where we were. So she sat up and
was looking around like she was
trying to help me navigate. It was
too late to stop and knock on a door


dog quotes

to ask directions, so I just kept dri-
ving on strange roads, hoping to see
a sign that pointed home.
Fancy didn't look all that worried,
but I thought I would give her some
comforting words anyway. I told her
that saying we were lost was rela-
tive. What I meant was, I knew we
were in South Georgia, somewhere
between the Alabaina line and the
Altamaha River. I also knew we
were north of the Florida line and
the Gulf of Mexico and south of ,
Macon. And I told her to just look
at it as if we Were exploring - some-
thing she really liked.
She blinked her big amber eyes at
me as if to say, "I trust you. Be-
sides, we're spending quality time
together."
She had an incredibly soulful
look at that moment, and that's
when I thought of that quote by the
Rev. Billy Graham. I've used it be-
fore, but it just sums up so much
about life from my perspective.
"God will prepare everything for
our perfect happiness in heaven, and
if it takes my dog being there, 1 be-
lieve he'll be there."

Guitarist 'Booie' Beach of Branford

Booie, as his fans call himi, has a gruff, yet friendly voice. Its "lived in"

Now, as part of a Gramm\-nominated group for the

for music after listening to his mom's collection of
Stanley Brothers records and George Shutler's lead

Blankenship live with Ralph Stanley that Booie's in-
terest in crosspicking was solidified. "Just strumming
along to a tune is boring to me." joked Booie.
As a teenager at Branford High School.
Booie was the star quarterback of the
Buccaneers. He was already be-
ing recruited by several
Florida universities his
junior year. During
the last game of
the season.

Booie
sud-
denly
went
down
on the
field.
"The fol-
lowing
Monday I
found out I
had played my
last game." said
Booie. While his torn
ACL healed. Booie
began to concen-
trate on his mu-
sic. "I didn't
care if the sun
came up or' '
went down." recalled
Booie. "1 was so down
about it because football
is what I was always
gonna do. Music had . '
been secondary to foot- '.
ball before that." Ho"e\-
er, Booie says music got ''
him through. He de\el-
oped "the sickness" once
again, this time stronger "-
than before.
Booie started spenchng ,5 'a
more time with the band .
he fronted on the week- . .' -aI
ends. Beachville Blue-
grass. The group gained a ,
large fan base and started k
playing gigs all over the
region. Soon after gradua-
tion in 1987, Booie mar-
ried and his son was born a Branford's 'Booie' Beach on guitar. - Photo: Submitted
year later. He decided to put
his career on hold for a while and "did the day job thing." Booie says he
should have gone to Nashville to try his luck back then when he was
"young and good looking, " but life happened.
In 1991, Booie,joined the Larry Stephenson band, based in Fredericks-


burg, Va. His family decided not to relocate, which forced Booie to make a
12-hour commute to Fredericksburg weekly. Eventually, and in the wake
of a divorce, Booie left the band. Next, he became lead singer and guitar
player for After Five. The group recorded Walls of Time, with Booie on
lead vocals. In 1995, Booie rejoined The Larry Stevenson Band.
It was in 1995, shortly after rejoining Larry Stevenson's band, that
Booie began having vocal problems. At first, doctors told Booie he
\%as suffering from allergies and would likely\ recover. However, his
symptoms became more severe and resulted in thyroid surgery.
"I haven't been able to sing since then." said Booie. Like football
during his high school years. singing had always been Booie's
strong point - guitar picking "as secondary. Determined to stay in
the music business, he decided to concentrated to improve his in-
strumental skills and developed his own playing style.
It \'as his signature style that landed him a spot as lead gui-
tarist in Larry Cordle's Lonesome Standard Time. He was fea-
S tured on the group's Grammy-nominated album, Murder on Music
Row\. Booie "as pleased to be part of the album, but missed the
Grammys themselves.
"I didn't e\en go. can you believe that?" said Booie. "Oh well, we
kne%% Dolly Parton was gonna win it."
He has been with the band for nearly'14 years now and
has been feature on the albums Songs from the Work-
bench and Lonesome Skynyrd Time. According
to the band's website. it is Booie's "signature
lead guitar skills" that help give the band a
"distinct identity that few groups enjoy."
Despite the severe damage to his vo-
cal cords, Booie went on to play 35
times at the Grand 01' Opry. He's
been to Europe twice, and has met
some of country music's most in-
famous names.
"Like I said, it's a sickness. You
can just never give it up. Some-
times you're starving to death,
sometimes ya have more money
than you know what to
do with,"


tow


,* _ . - -,


Booie said. "In this
n, it may or may not


happen."
Booie has faced many downs throughout
his career, and an equal number of ups. He
says the business can become depressing.
"You go from the big crowds on the week-
ends, signing autographs, then you get home
Monday night and you're all alone," said
Booie. "The up and downs of it kind of get to
you.
Ho\eever. the high points are worth it, he
say's.
"It's when you walk on stage and someone in
the band says to you. 'You know, Hank
Williams stood right there in that circle where
you're standing right now'," Booie's country ac-
cent sounds reminiscent of a hundred years ago.
He says it is moments like that, and the hopes
of keeping bluegrass
alive, that inspire
him to stay in the
music business.
"Bluegrass is the s
only real country mu-
sic left. It is %%hat
country music use to i
be." he said. m tnie
A. after being televised y
playing at the Grand 01'
Opry. Booie's mother re-
ceived hundreds of calls
and visits., Iae mor
"People in Branford m e h o
treat me like I've been a
I.- big star, but not a star.
0 ou know? They make me
feel like one. though."
said Booie. "I miss it. to
be honest with you.
Sometimes I want to
throw the guitar in the yonB
car and come onl home."
Booie says he is still
the same man he's always been.
"I still come home and play over at Ellie Ray's with
Jamie and them," he said. "I could be working at Wal-Mart next for all I
know, or Garth Brooks could call me up."

Man arrested twice in one week

on domestic violence charges


By Stephenie Livingston
James Earl Tompkins,
68, of Branford, was arrest-
ed on August 4 for threat-
ening to kill his wife with a
knife and two days later for
attempting to run over his
son with a truck, sheriffs
reports show.
Deputy Racheal Ro-
driquez of the sheriffs of-'
fice was dispatched to 5908
264th St. in Branford at


6:20 p.m. last Tuesday after
police received a call that
Thomkins was threatening
to kill his wife. Thomkins'
wife told Rodriquez that
Tompkins said "he would
kill her with a knife that he
was holding," according to
authorities.
Tompkins was arrested
on charges of aggravated
assault/domestic violence.
The next day, police

Virginia woman killed in 3-vehicle crash on 1-10


Blown tire on pickup

to blame, says FHP

By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

A Richmond, Va. woman was killed in a three-vehicle
crash on I-10 Thursday afternoon, according to the
Florida Highway Patrol. Shirley G. Ricks, 58, was
pronounced dead at the scene, FHP reports show. Her
passenger, 63-year-old Joseph Ricks, also of Richmond,


was seriously injured.
According to FHP, the left front tire of a westbound
2003 Ford F-250 blew at about 1:45 p.m., causing the
driver, 60-year-old Timothy W. Welty of Kerrville, Texas,
to lose control. The truck then traveled into the left lane,
striking the 2009 Chevrolet driven Shirley Ricks. FHP
reports the left rear and left side of a trailer being pulled
by the truck struck the right side of the Chevrolet. Both
vehicles then traveled into the center median. The
Chevrolet continued into the eastbound lane, where it was
run over by the left rear tire of a 2003 Mack semi trailer,
driven by 61-year-old Gailen H. Gates of Jacksonville.


The Chevrolet then struck the front axle of the trailer with
its front. The Chevrolet rotated counter clockwise and
came to a final rest in the left facing southeast. The Mack
truck came to a final rest in the right emergency lane
facing east and the Ford came to a final rest in the center
median facing west.
The crash occurred mile marker 285 in Suwannee
County.
Seatbelts were in use by all occupants, according to
FHP.
Gates and Welty suffered no injuries. Joseph Ricks was
transported to Shands UF.


Murder



trial



begins

Continued From Page 1A

"Lace Jelks took this
knife and she stabbed Liz
one time, two times, three
times, fours times," said
Prosecutor Craig
Jacobson, counting and
thrusting a plastic sealed,
camo-colored army knife
in the air until he reached
the count of eighteen.
"Elizabeth Jones, or
'Liz' as she was known by


those closest to her," he
said, "was unarmed, she
had no weapon."
Jacobson flashed images
of Jones' lifeless corpse
punctured with stabs
wounds to her head, arms,
chest and face before
jurors for the first time. He
paused on one of the
images - "a death
wound," he said, "a cut to
her aorta, which runs from
her heart, a mortal
wound." Then he stated:
"In this fight - a fist fight
- Lace Jelks used a
deadly weapon and did
that damage to Liz."
"Lace only had a bump
on her head, no visible
fight marks," he said.
"Unlike semi-automatic
pistols, knives don't go off
accidentally," he said.
He asked jurors to listen
to the testimonies put


before them and to render
a guilty verdict for
premeditated, criminal
murder before returning to
his seat.
"This tragedy was fueled
by alcohol and ego," said
Dan Clark, Jelks' attorney.
"The aggressive stupidity
of young people."
He stood and looked at
the jury.
"What you will see is
that Lace Jelks was no
more culpable than most
of the folks at the Illusions
Club that night."
He said the only way to
.convict his client, was for
jurors to find her
criminally responsible and
prove that the act that
occurred on the early
morning of Nov. 15 was
premeditated.
"I submit that the
evidence will show that


there was no time for
that," he said. "The
wounds are not consistent
with methodical,
premeditated killing."
Instead, Clark referred
to Lashonda Walker, the
19-year-old younger sister
of Elizabeth Jones "as the
real villain in this case."
He called her an
"intermittent interloper."
Following that
statement. Walker took the
stand.
She testified that she and
Jones and several friends
had gone out that night,
first making a stop at "The
Big B" around 10 p.m.,
and later heading over to
the Illusions club in the
Suwannee County Mall.
Walker testified that she
and her sister had been
escorted outside the
nightclub following an


initial encounter between
Jelks and Jones while
inside. The two reportedly
bumped shoulders on the
dance floor.
"She told me what had
happened," Walker said,
referring to her sister's
brush with Jelks.
Once outside Walker
said she heard Jelks
remark: "There goes those
two bitches right there,"
Walker said.
An argument ensued
between Jelks and Jones,
which then turned into a
fistfight around 3 a.m.
* The fight escalated and
moved over toward a
green Dodge Durango
occupied by Jelks and
Kelli Coulter, Walker
attested.
At some point, as the
fighting moved toward the
open passenger side door


of the vehicle, a knife was
drawn by Jelks and Jones
was repeatedly stabbed.
Just before recess,
Pasquel Walker, a friend of
Lashonda Walker and the
deceased Jones woman,
took the stand.
"I saw her get bumped
by Lace," Walker said.
Pasquel Walker testified
that she was one of several
people who also helped
load Jones into a vehicle
after she was stabbed
outside the club.
"Her feet were under the
truck," Walker said. She
and others lifted Elizabeth
Jones off the ground and
into a vehicle where she
was taken to Shands at
Live Oak.
Court recessed for lunch
and testimony was
expected to continued after
1 p.m. Tuesday.

'Amazing Race'


I
, fir~lRy


As we noted in a recent
front-page story, it was an
"amazing race" to the end
for students in the 21st
Century program this
summer. The summer-
long credit retrieval and
activities program held at
the district's middle and
high schools ended with
18 teams of students
engaged in an "amazing
race" - roughly modeled
on the CBS television
show of the same name -
around Live Oak. Here
are some scenes that
didn't make it into the
paper last time.

Ecofun Campers get the scoop on water


Suwannee County/UF IFAS
Extension provided area youth
with hands-on activities to
explore water in our
environment and ways to
conserve it recently. Campers
spent time dip-netting for
invertebrates to determine if a
local pond was clean and
healthy. The good news was
they found stone fly larvae,
which are an indicator of
healthy water quality.
The children also participated
in a rain barrel relay, water taste
tests, food chain games, worm
composting and storm water
run-off activities. Lastly the
campers took a trip out to
Suwannee River State Park
where they r6de a tram to Lime
Rock Sink. On the way, they
saw a gopher tortoise coming
out of his burrow and an oak
snake hanging out of the rocks.
At the sink, they observed a
limestone rock formations with
all of its cracks and fissures. A
review of the underground
aquifer was discussed as the
spring run was observed.
In addition to the tram ride the
children met with Scientists
from the United States
Geological Survey to learn
about the tools used to monitor
water flows, depths and quality.
In addition, campers learned
about career opportunities in
science fields. The camp was
taught by Master Gardener
volunteers, along with Brian
Estevez, 4-H gent and Carolyn
Saft, Horticulture Agent &
Suwannee River Partnership
Education Coordinator.

So, have you grown tired


of hunting raider and Super
Mutants in the wasteland
of Fallout 3? Don't put up
your assault rifle and
duster just yet! Bethesda
Softworks is seeking to
extend your stay in their
post-nuclear war world
with the release of
downloadable content
(DLC). These DLC feature

new areas, weapons,
achievements and
sidestories for you ex-
vault dwellers to delve
into, and to top it off:
they only cost about ten
bucks each! So far you
can only download them
onto the Xbox 360, but
soon they'll be available
to all the PS3 owners.
Leading the charge of
DLC would be Operation
Anchorage, which tasks
players with helping out the
Brotherhood of Steel
Outcasts at an outpost on
the.edge of D.C. The
Outcasts need a computer
that can link to a simulation
inside of the outpost that
will allow them to enter the
armory and, as it so
happens, your Pip-Boy is
able to interface with the
simulation. Once "inside"
the sim, players will find
themselves re-enacting the
battle to free Alaska from
the invading Chinese army
before the nuclear war that
ravaged the world.
It's interesting to see
what the world of Fallout
was like before the
devastation, and since it
takes place in the past, all
of the equipment and
locations you get to use and
see are at the top of their
condition. Unfortunately,
however, don't expect to go
in there blasting away with
your special weapons.
You're only allowed to use
the guns you find while
inside of the simulation,
but you get to utilize health
and ammo stations along
the way that keep you
fighting fit.
Operation Anchorage is a
little disappointing in the
end, however, since you
can't go back into the
simulation just to get
anything you might've
missed. There are a couple
of new Perks introduced, as,
well as your rewards for
helping the Outcasts. Fans
of sniping will be
enthralled by the Gauss
Rifle, while stealthy people


tongue also exerts gentle but necessary
pressure against the teeth to keep them
aligned. Erupting teeth are coaxed into
their proper positions by the tongue.
Your tongue is also fitted with the taste
buds that make food appealing, a vital
factor in getting the nutrition you need. In
combination with your nose - the
headquarters of olfactory sense - taste
buds discern sweet, sour, salty and bitter
tastes and can meld them into tastiness.
In short, the tongue Is critical to yoqr
quality of life. Like any other part of the
body, it is susceptible to disease, like
cancer. When your dentist examines
your mouth, he looks not only at your
teeth, but at all of the tissue in your oral
cavity, including the tongue. The next
time you visit your dentist, ask him how
you can keep your tongue healthy.

those who love power
armor get a suit of

The second DLC is titled
The Pitt, which is a pretty
descriptive name for the
place that it enables you to
go to. After a short quesf,
players are taken to the
ruins of Pittsburgh, now
called The Pitt, that were
missed by the bombs. The
water surrounding the city,
however, became highly
irradiated and the people
soon succumbed to a
plague. The people that
remain still suffer from this
disease, you can see it
while you look at them, and
the city has formed into an
upper and lower class.
. The lower class of
people live in dingy homes
and are forced to work day
after day and each are
infected, while the people
in the upper class live in
apartments and are well-
protected and equipped. At
first, the player gets
presented with the choice
of either helping the lower
people gain freedom or
helping the upper class gain
complete control.
Although, in true Fallout
tradition, things turn out to
be radically different than
they first appeared.
It's amazing just how
different the Pitt looks from
the Capital Wasteland -
everything has a unique
industrial feel to it. Most of *
the folks there have never
seen a Super Mutant, let
alone heard of them.
They're far too busy
worrying about the
'Trogs," which seem to be
the final.stage of the
strange plague overtaking
the town. Luckily, you'll be
given new weapons to fight
the trogs, like the Auto-
Axe, which is essentially a
chainsaw, and the
Infiltrator, which is a
scoped and silenced assault
rifle. You even get new
Perks and when everything
is,done and over, you're
welcome to go back to the
Pitt at any time!
So would I recommend
Operation Anchorage and
The Pitt? I certainly would,
especially since you can get
both on one disc for 20
dollars. Again, they're only
out for the Xbox 360, but
PS3 owners will get their
chance to try them out later
this year. This wasteland
isn't getting boring anytime
soon, so go get busy
scavenging!

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: What exactly is the purpose of the
tongue?
A: Among other things, the tongue is
essential to speech. You can speak
intelligibly without teeth, but you couldn't
do so without your tongue. But here are
some other things the tongue does: It
helps you move food around in your
mouth for chewing, swallowing and,
ultimately, digesting. It also helps with
plucking particles out of your mouth. The

she said.
Lisa Duran said she fears the worst.
"The only thing that's going to stop this is
somebody's going to die," she said.
Brenda Rosado said she believes it's time for
police to adopt new tactics.
"I feel it needs to come to a stop," said Rosado. "I
think they (police) need to enforce a curfew, that way
if they do see people out and about they can check
them."
LOPD Chief Buddy Williams told the crowd that
the language barrier is a major hindrance in the
investigation and asked for bilingual volunteers to
stay in contact with the Hispanic community on
behalf of police.
"Hopefully we can bring a resolution to the
problems we got going on. The problem in the past
with reporting is the communication barrier," he said.
One person at the meeting volunteered her time
and said she would do what she can to help.
"These people are taking advantage of citizens that
are working hard," Ana Martinez said after-the
meeting. "We need to stop that. I'm very happy with
the police and sheriff because they're taking
initiative."
Williams said it is common in the Hispanic
community to let crimes go unreported for fear of
immigration authorities. But Williams said the
residents' legal status is not LOPD's focus.
"Being illegal or legal is not a concern of the
LOPD," said Williams. "We got to gain your trust
and the only way to do that is through meetings like
tonight."
Suwannee County Sheriff Tony Cameron agreed.
"The victim of a crime is a victim, it doesn't matter
if they are-legal or illegal," Cameron told the crowd.
Williams said one reason Hispanics have been
targeted is a tendency to keep large sums of cash in
their homes.
Representatives from the local branch of Bank of
America told those assembled they could open
accounts there despite their immigration status.
Another speaker mentioned a Visa debit card that can
be purchased at local stores and loaded with cash for
a nominal fee.
Local businessman Steve Mendez demonstrated a
wooden device that can be placed between a door and
a wall, making it harder for the door to be kicked in,
as is the case with most of the reported home
invasions.
Williams told the room that the investigation is
ongoing and will follow up with information tpey
may receive from two 16-year-old males arrested
Saturday. Williams said the pair may have ties to the
invasions. (See story, this page.)
Quarterly meetings will be held to update the
Hispanic community on the status of the
investigation, said Williams.'
"this i. the first step in us trying to work
together," he said.

INVASIONS


Continued From Page 1A

Cooks was arrested by LOPD
for allegedly robbing an
Hispanic man at gunpoint in
front of the JK Food Mart on
Northeast Ohio Avehue.
When the victim told Cooks
he didn't have any money,
Cooks allegedly snatched a
watch off his wrist then fled the
area on a blue bicycle.
Williams said Cooks was
spotted shortly thereafter in the
area of the convenience store
after a BOLO (be on the
lookout) was issued. He was
apprehended by LOPD at the
intersection of 6th Street and
Walker Avenue and charged
with armed robbery. Williams
said Cooks was dressed in
black, as were the perpetrators
of the home invasion robberies.
Williams said although a gun
was not found at the time of
Cooks' arrest, the victim told
police that Cooks pointed a gun
at him and demanded money.


Webb was apprehended
shortly after Cooks by the
Suwannee County Sheriff's
Office. According to an early
report from LOPD, that agency
was responsible for both
arrests.
According to a sheriff's
report, Webb, whom Williams
told the Democrat is also a
suspect in the home invasions,
was apprehended by sheriff's
deputies after being observed
"attempting to shove an object
into his pants" while walking
down Johnson Avenue and 6th
Street around 12:31 p.m. After
a search, Webb was found to
have a .380 caliber pistol in his.
right front shorts pocket, the
report shows. The deputies
were assisting LOPD in the
investigation of the earlier
robbery when Webb was
spotted, authorities say.
Webb was charged with
possession of a concealed
weapon and possession of less
than 20 grams of cannabis.


Suwannee

County receives

$15K for PILT,
SSuwannee County received a check in the
amount of $15,208 from the Suwannee River
Water Management District for payment in
lieu of taxes (PILT) at a county commission
meeting Aug. 4. Suwannee is one of 11
counties receiving PILT funds from the
District this year.
PILT was created by the Florida Legislature
to help reduce the fiscal impact to rural
counties when lands are taken off the tax
rolls. Since land owned by the District is
exempt from property taxes, PILT funds
reduce the economic impact to counties when
the District purchases lands for flood control,
water quality and natural resource protection.
In previous years, counties would receive
payment for land for a period of 10 years, but
with the recent passage of Senate Bill 2080
counties will continue to receive PILT funds
until their populations reach 150,000.
Steve Minnis; District governmental affairs
director, made the:presentation to the
commission. Minnis also provided an
overview of several District projects,
including:
SUpdates to the District's water use
permitting rules. The District governing board
will review revisions to the proposed rules at

Treatment Options for COPD
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a broad medical
term fot chronic bronchitis, asthmatic bronchitis, and emphysema.
Difficulty in breathing results when the tubes and air sacs that make
up the lungs become blocked, which leads to trapped air in the lungs
and a decreased ability to exhale or breathe out. Symptoms include
cough, increased mucus production, shortness of breath, and chest
tightness.
While there is no cure for COPD and damage to the lungs cannot
be reversed, treatments are available to alleviate symptoms and
decrease the risk of complications. Persons who smokeare advised
to stop smoking to prevent further damage to the lungs. Inhaled
bronchodilators may be prescribed, which help alleviate coughing
and shortness of breath. Albuterol (Proventil, Ventolin) is a short-
acting bronchodilator prescribed to quickly relieve shortness of
breath when a sudden attack of breathing difficulty occurs. Long-
acting bronchodilators, such as salmeterol (Serevent), are prescribed
for daily use and should not be used in an emergency, since they do
not work fast enough when immediate help is needed. Fluticasone
(Flovent) is an example of an inhaled corticosteroid, which works to
reduce airway inflammation and improve breathing.

Homeowner
alerts police
to potential
gas thieves


Tamara


An alert homeowner stopped thieves Alana
from stealing gasoline out of his vehicle Battista
in the early hours of Aug. 4, say police.
Tamara Alana Battista, 18, of 18635
229th Drive and 19-year-old Angela
Leigh Elmore of 699 SW CR 300,
Mayo were arrested by officer Derek
Slaughter of the Live Oak Police
Department.
Reports state a homeowner in the 500 Angela
block of Westmoreland Street observed Leigh
a green truck slowly driving west on . Elmore
Westmoreland around 3:45 a.m. The
homeowner stated two white males left
the vehicle and then the vehicle's lights were turned
off. The homeowner further reported the two male
subjects walked beside the vehicle while it drove
down the road. The two subjects then reportedly
approached the homeowner's vehicle parked in his
driveway, attempted to open the gas tank cap but
were confronted by the homeowner. Reports indicate
the two subjects then fled the scene on foot, leaving a
gas can and hose behind.
The green truck was stopped by Slaughter on
Westmoreland and it was determined the driver of the
truck was Elmore with Battista as a back seat
passenger, according to the report. Upon interviewing
the two, Slaughter determined the four were
attempting to steal gasoline. The four, according to
the report, used walkie-talkies to stay in
communication with one another and "to look out for
any police in the area," according to Elmore's
statement. Battista reported she was asleep in the
vehicle and did not know where she was or who was
in the vehicle.
A search of the vehicle by Slaughter reportedly
turned up a plastic bag containing a small amount of
marijuana in a compartment in the driver side door
and a burned marijuana cigarette in the ashtray.
Battista and Elmore were placed under arrest and
taken to the Suwannee County Jail. Battista was
charged with petit theft, principle in the first degree to
burglary and principal in the first degree to grand
theft. Elmore was charged with petit theft, possession
of less than 20 grams of cannabis and grand theft.

Florida Fish Busters' Bulletin

August 2009


Expand your horizons with

freshwater fishes, turtles,

frogs, crayfish and mollusks


By Bob Wattendorf
Although Florida requires anyone
between the ages of 16 and 65 to pur-
chase a recreational freshwater fish-
ing license, there are animals you can
take recreationally, without a license,
from fresh water for consumption or
to use as bait, provided you know and
follow the rules.
Obtaining a recreational freshwater
fishing license is easy -just call 888-
FISH FLORIDA, or visit
MyFWC.com/License. The license is
a great value.
However, what about taking turtles;
frogs; crustaceans, such as crayfish
and grass shrimp; and mollusks, such
as mussels and clams? To take these
species recreationally or for personal
use, you do not need a fishing license.
However, it is very important to un-
derstand that specific regulations ap-
ply. People must have a commercial
fishing license or Class III exhibition
and sale license to sell some of these
species.
Recent reports of large harvests of
several species of freshwater turtles,
promoted by demand in Asian and
other foreign markets, caused the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) to prohibit
all commercial take or sale of wild
native freshwater turtles, of which
there are 18 species in Florida. State
law prohibits harvesting alligator
snapping turtles and regular snapping
turtles, Barbour's and Escambia map
turtles and cooters. Other freshwater
turtles (chiefly softshell turtles) are
restricted to one per person per day
for personal use. They are typically
caught by hand, dip net, minnow
seine or baited hook and used for hu-
man i-pnsum.ption..Theae. flattened
looking turtles with leathery shells:
can inflict a painful bite and have
sharp claws, so be careful if you
choose to harvest one.
Red-eared sliders are a common
nonnative freshwater turtle in Flori-
da's waters, but people cannot catch
them to keep as pets. While red-eared
sliders can be taken and used for hu-
man consumption, once captured,
they cannot be released back into
Florida's waters.
Among the most common frogs tak-
en for consumption are pig frogs and
bullfrogs. There are no seasons, bag
or size limits. Most people use gigs at
night to hunt them. (Some specific ar-
eas prohibit this, so check the local
regulations.) Sale of frogs or frog legs
requires a commercial fishing license.
Mollusks, which include mussels


Family & friends

day celebration
!Ebenezer AME Church will be cele-
brating its Annual Family & Friends Day

ficers and members of Ebenezer invite th
public to attend. Rev. Charles Graham,
pastor.


and clams, are filter feeders and live
on or in the sand at the bottom of
rivers and lakes. Certain species of
freshwater mussels may be collected
for personal use. However, federal
laws protect seven Florida mussel
species that occur from the Suwannee
River system north and west through-
out the Panhandle. Possessing or dis-
turbing these protected species can re-
sult in substantial penalties, so be
sure to do, your research first. The
daily bag limit for unprotected mus-
sels, such as Florida spiney spike and
paper pondshell varieties, is 10 per
person (or 20 half shells), and they
can only be taken by handpicking.
Freshwater mussels may not be sold.
Species of freshwater mussels from
families other than Unionidae or Mar-
garitferidae, such as the Asian clam,
have no daily bag or possession limits
and are often taken for bait. People
remove the tough body from the shell
and place it on a bait-holder style
hook.
There are more than 50 species of
freshwater crayfish in Florida; many
are imperiled and may not be taken.
However, there are no seasons, gear,
bag or size limits on the more abun-
dant "crawdads." These critters look
like little lobsters and are sometimes
taken with small traps or dip nets, for
use as bait or for consumption in
things such as Cajun stews or Creole
recipes. Red swamp and white river
crayfish are the most common species
used for these purposes. They are
found in ditches and vegetated areas
with clear water and often around al-
gae-covered rocks. Traps are baited
with abundant amounts of fresh or
frozen fish parts, not spoiled. Leaving
. the trap6xovernight is normally impor-
,tant, but remember to tag it with your
name and address -and be sure it is
placed legally and safely. Red swamp
and white river crayfish are listed as
conditional species, so while they
may be personally used for human
consumption, they may not be kept
alive or sold without special permits.
Getting outdoors and learning about
nature is a great way to have fun, get
exercise and get away from the stress
of everyday life. To learn more and to
check local rules visit MyFWC.com.
Instant licenses are available at
MyFWC.com/License or by calling
888-FISH-FLORIDA (347-4356). Re-
port violators by calling *FWC or
#FWC on your cell phone, or 888-

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Who to root for


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels

Continued From Page 1B

comes to bowl games you root for
everyone you just got through hating in
your conference. When Michigan plays
Notre Dame you root against the team
that beat your team even if it was 50
years ago. Never root against Army or
Navy, you never know when you when
you might need one. The old, "I wish
they would tie" doesn't work, there are
no ties anymore, except the ones in your
closet, on your bread and under the;;' '
train.
Pro football is the toughest to root for.
1 always want the locals like Andra
Davis (Denver), and Kelly Jennings
(Seattle) to win. 1 am a Giants fan so I
want them to win. What happens when
your fantasy quarterback (not on your


favorite team) is going against your
favorite team? Is loyalty thicker than
money? Usually money wins out,
neither Manning cares too much about
my fantasy football aspirations. Jaguars
against the Dolphins. Do you like the
mammals or the endangered species?
How can you root for a Raider over a
Patriot? Who are you kidding, money
always wins out.
The next time you don't have a dog in
the hunt you can still root, pigs do.
Carefully read the situation, taking
geography, history, math and perhaps
even political science into account.
Remember where the Mason-Dixon line
is, the 37th Parallel, your allies, your
buddies, your roots and make an
informed choice. I knew I got a higher
education for a reason. The most
important thing to remember before
picking a side ... is the refrigerator
properly stocked? But that's another
story.

that there was a desire to
take the program in a dif-
ferent direction. While I
would obviously have pre-
ferred to return, I under-
stand that the administra-
tion is faced with compet-
ing influences. I certainly
respect their decision.
I've thoroughly enjoyed
my ten years coaching at
SHS, the last seven years
with the boy's soccer team.
We had some great suc-
cesses along the way, I'm
just as proud of our 17-7-2
record this past season
with a young but talented
team. This season and the
next, could be great ones.
The best part of working
with these young people is
seeing them develop not


just as soccer players but
as individuals. Soccer is a
sport in which young peo-
ple of average size and
ability can excel by play-
ing as a team. It is in find-
ing a path to success and
learning to V ,:, k. tugilhcr ,,
that soccer builds charac-
ter. There is a great sense
of accomplishment in be-
ing able to watch your
players improve from day
to day, game to game and
year to year.
The support that the
boy's program has re-
ceived has been incredible.
I'd like to thank the play-
ers themselves, their par-
ents and the Suwannee
Soccer Booster Club. My
assistant and JV coaches


Stan Posey and Tim Smith.
The alumni players that
continue to show up and
assist. Greg Scott and
Suwannee Parks & Recre-
ation. I owe particular
thanks to Clyde Sperring,
RiRandy Ethridge, coach
Kathy Wood and Ron
Ceryak for their confidence
in me. I'm extremely grate-
ful for the opportunities
they gave me. Thanks to
former Fort White High
School coach Bob
Hochmuth and to all those
players and their families
who made up the "Indian
Dogs"; we had a great
time. To the three amigos
who are constantly work-
ing behind the scenes, a
special thanks to Jimmy
Prevatt, Bill O'Conner and
Sid Hayes.
To the many friends I've
made along the way. If
having friends is a bless-
ing, then I have truly been
blessed during my time at
SHS. For all those who
have supported Suwannee
soccer, keep up the good
work, the boys are worth it.
I hope all the best for the
boys and wish them noth-
ing but success in their fu-
ture endeavors under new
coach Archie Cook.

Class of




Suwannee High grads

get together, reminisce


Submitted
Members of the Suwannee High School class of 1942
gathered at the Telford Hotel in White Springs recently to
renew friendships and to recall some interesting moments
of the past. Special note was made of the struggles that
many had made in pursuit of education. In the days
before REA (Rural Electrification Administration) life
was particularly difficult for the youth who lived out of
town. Suwannee High was then one of the most
consolidated high schools in the state, students being
bussed from all over this large county. This meant that
many had to rise and ride before sunrise, and would
return home after dark. Those who had homework would
then turn to-that--task (after doing the usual chores for,
kids on a farm), all by kerosene lantern light. Town kids
in those days were probably unaware of the more difficult
lives of their classmates from the farms.'
One who especially stood out in his efforts at
continuing education was Milton Hillhouse. On the
occasion of this reunion we were reminded of his great
struggle, receiving a brief account of his life, prepared by
his daughter Carolyn Hillhouse Jones. She had come to
this reunion with her husband Brad, representing Milton,
who had passed on in early 2009. He had been one of the
most enthusiastic supporters of these class reunions. She
provided us an account of his very interesting life,
including his service in the United States Army Air - .
Corps, during WorldWar II. His continuing education
studies, after the war, as a veteran on the G.I. Bill, earned l
him a bachelor's degree at Stetson University and later a
master's degree in mathematics at Columbia University.
His studies qualified him to participate in important
research programs for the Department of Defense,
including work at the Red Stone Arsenal. He then had a
long career as a teacher.
His health was impaired by an episode of Lyme Dr. Tom West strl
disease, and later Parkinson's disease. But near the end,
even in his days of failing health he was passionate in Orton Bryan (hus
confronting the new problems and new opportunities of Clayton Bryan) a
his nation and strongly expressed his support for Obama, Europe. Charles'
America's first African-American president, in a letter to Air Corps, which

Other reminiscences included Jack Sullivan's account member of the cl
of D-Day in June 1944, when he witnessed the heroic Edna Blackstone
work of an officer named Elliot Richardson, repeatedly fun just telling at
risking his life in efforts to rescue wounded soldiers -
this same man who as Attorney General for Richard
Nixon in 1973 refused to carry out a presidential order
which he considered criminal, and instead resigned from CA
the Cabinet. We also heard stories of the heroic deeds of POP I.,

after. And we shared stories and pictures of the three

to be a perfect place for meeting, greeting and eating, and

Surrey Place Care

Center hosts

3rd annual "Back

to School Bash!"
On August 1, 2009, Surrey Place Care Center hosted its third annual "Back to School
Bash"! Employees and their children enjoyed the festivities including ice cream,
balloons, slides, and best of all school supplies! There were book bags loaded with
school supplies for all different grade levels and were distributed to those children who
attended.
Surrey Place Care Center's residents were on a mission to make sure the children
had school supplies for the upcoming school year. With the struggling economic times
Americans are facing, the residents decided to raise money for the children's school
supplies.
On July 3rd and the 29th, residents decided to have two mega bake sales to raise
money. With the help of 1st Baptist Church in Branford, the administration of Surrey
Place Care Center, and the generous people who purchased the baked goods, the
residents were able to raise over $1,000! This overwhelming amount of generosity
was able to provide over 80 children school supplies for the year!
Surrey Place Care Center extends a sincere thank you to all the individuals that made
this day such a success! The residents at Surrey Place Care Center have a heart to
reach out to others and share God's love with others.

Go Green and Get Lean
We've certainly heard that making a few 'green' changes can be good for the planet.
But did you also know that It can help shed pounds? Move over popular diet plans, the
best way to trim your waistline could be to think green.
1. Grow your own food: A backyard vegetable or herb garden can produce a number of
edibles that are healthy, inexpensive and can help keep a trim figure. Gardening has:
been shown to be a very effective means to burning calories, especially when you rely
on manual tools for the work. The rewards of digging, planting and sowing.could be
better meals and a lighter you when you step on the scale.
2. Skip the car on occasion: A study of households with at least one vehicle by
Experian Automotive revealed that households with three or more cars are the single-
largest group among American car owners. The average American household has 2.28
cars. Many times one of the cars is an SUVor pickup truck while the other is a sedan or
compact car. This can add up to a large amount of auto emissions arid fuel
consumption for the average family. Keeping the car parked In the driveway or garage
and taking a greener mode of transportation once in a while is a healthy Option.
Walking, bicycling or in-line skating to nearby stores or even your job will help to burn
calories and clear the air.
3. Limit beef and dairy products: Cutting back on fatty meats and high-calorie dairy
items and substituting more fresh vegetables and legumes can lead to a smaller
waistline and improve other aspects of your health. What's more, according to the
Alternative Consumer, the 1.5 billion cattle required to meet dairy and beef needs are
estimated to produce up to 18 percent of the world's greenhouse gas emissions. That's
more than cars, airlines and all other forms of transportation combined.
4. Take the stairs:Elevators and escalators require a lot of energy for operation. When
possible, skip these conveniences for the classic method of scaling different levels --
the staircase. Feel the burn as all parts of your legs get a workout and your heart
starts pumping.
5. Start recycling in earnest: Fill up pails of used aluminum cans, plastic products and
newspapers. The simple act of hauling those pails to the curb or to the nearest
recycling center oan burn a few extra calories.
6. Reduce your dependence on fast food or prepackaged meals: These convenience
foods tend to be high in packaging and preservatives -- two items that spell trouble for
the planet and your health. Limiting consumption of these foods will help you feel
better all around.
7. Create a backyard oasis: Planting trees, shrubs and plants is green and a good'..
workout in itself. However, a beautiful and environmentally friendly yard may also
entice you to spend more time outdoors with the family or pets engaging in physical',-
activity. This is beneficial to overall health and weight loss. .
If you've been waiting for the right reason to start thinking green, the side benefit of
weight loss and Improved health could be just the Inspiration you need

of the Quarter
Workforce has announced Glenda Branch as its
Employee of the Quarter. Branch was presented a
certificate and token of appreciation by Executive
Director Sheryl Rehberg.
Branch has served as Mobile Services Director for
Workforce since 2007, though she has an extensive
background in workforce and the public service industry.
At the beginning of her career, Branch worked for the
Department of Children of Families as a case manager.
Later she became employed by the Department of Labor
and then North Florida Workforce Development Board,
first as a Career Specialist and then a Site Supervisor.
Branch was later charged with assisting the laid-off
workers from Smithfield find new opportunities. In 2007,
she became Mobile Services Director for Workforce,
where she assists customers in Hamilton, Jefferson,
Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee, and Taylor Counties with
job search, resume preparation, assessments, and provides
other workforce services. Branch eagerly and unselfishly
provides exceptional customer service to those she serves,
often going out of way to find solutions for those in need.
Branch is a lifelong resident of Madison. She enjoys
shopping, photography, and spending time with family
and friends, including nine godchildren.

SShoreline anglers

complying with new

license requirement
Florida's saltwater anglers who fish from shore seem to
accept the reality that paying about $9 for a state fishing
e license is better than paying a $15 - $25 federal
registration fee.
2007 Ch v lf The federal government will begin charging the fee in
2011 in states that don't have an approved licensing
system. By establishing the shoreline license, the Florida
S237 Legislature arranged for this state's anglers to be exempt
12, from the federal fee.
s The shoreline license took effect Aug. 1, and by Aug. 6,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) had sold 7,468 of them.
'12o737 FWC officials said revenue generated by the new state
moeorr Tm license and matching funds will help pay for marine
resource management, research and law enforcement in
FloridaIn states that opt for the federal registration fee,
the money will go to Washington, D.C., and will not
4 9397 . benefit the states' coffers.
200 Jep Comnirnr Federal fisheries managers.established-the registration
program to enable them to gather more information about
recreational angling to guide management decisions. In
Florida's case, the FWC's license structure enables the
S4,83?7 state to gather the information and makes the federal
ur " Frdo registration unnecessary.

SRWMD updates lands and rules for use


For example, enforcing
hours of operation helps
cut down on vandalism
and the possession of
alcohol. As a result,
District lands are more
family-friendly and the
cost of maintenance is


less.
Heeke said regulating
what visitors do on
District property helps
protect the land and
provides family-friendly
recreational opportunities.
"Our goal is to protect


the resource and provide
public access," he said.
For more information
about special use
authorizations, land
management rules or the
public use guide call 386-
362-1001.

Sign marking Suwannee River Water Management
District's Log Landing Tract in Dixie County. The District is
making improvements to its public recreation lands by
adding additional parking lots, informational kiosks and
signs marking trails and hours of operation. - Photo: Submitted


T he Suwannee
River Water
Management
District is working to
make its public recreation
lands more user-friendly.
Some of the
improvements include
additional parking lots,
informational kiosks and
signs marking trails and
hours of operation.
The District will also
replace all red boundary
markers with yellow ones
for greater visibility.
Yellow bands will be
posted every 200 feet and
yellow signs every 400
feet along property lines.
The markers are
important because not all
property is fenced-in due
to installation and -
maintenance costs,
explained District Land
Management Specialist
Edwin McCook.
District lands are open
to the public during
daylight hours only.
Under the District's
definition of daylight,
visitors may arrive an
hour and a half before
sunrise and leave an hour
and a half after sunset.
"That way those who
fish, for example, will
have enough time to get
out on the water at first
light and back to their


vehicles after sunset,"
McCook said.
The District does allow
some night use for certain
activities such as fishing
or camping to those who
obtain a special use
authorization at no cost.
The District is also
working to post signage
that would show what
activities are allowed on
each tract. Signs will
display symbols depicting
allowed activities such as
fishing, hiking, camping,
etc.
"If the sign doesn't
display a certain symbol,
that activity isn't
allowed," said Bob Heeke,
District senior land
resource manager.
The District recently
updated its land
management rules to
reflect its current policies
and procedures. The
process included adoption
of a public use guide to
inform the public of what
activities are allowed on
each tract that is open for
recreation.
The rules allow Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
officers to issue citations
to those who engage in
activities other than what
is allowed on District
property.
