 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.

By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
The annual Back to School Bash is set
for 9 a.m. until noon on Saturday at the
Suwannee County Coliseum in Live Oak.
Mary Taylor of the Suwannee Drug Free
Coalition, which sponsors the event,
said the bash is a free event for the
whole family that "promotes a safe and
healthy start to the school year."
Free book bags and school supplies are
available on a first-come first-served
basis. Taylor said about 1,700 bags are
available.
"Last year we gave away over 1,200
book bags filled with supplies but,
unfortunately, had to turn some folks away
because we ran out," said Taylor. "This
year we have 1,700 book bags and we
hope this will be enough to go around."
Taylor said since'the bash has grown
since its inception six years ago.

. -.


It is still blazing hot outside and Af. -
many of us are waiting for the cooler
weather to start our fall vegetable
garden. While we are waiting, we can plan our strategy to
combat unwelcome vegetable pests. Hopefully you have,
already started the soil solarization process, which helps
reduce nematode populations. The next step is to learn
what insects are likely to feed on our vegetables. We can
do this while kicked back in our favorite chair and
reading a University of Florida publication titled, Insect
Management in the Home Garden, by Susan Webb and
Freddie Johnson. You can go online or stop by our office
for a copy of it.
Following are a few guidelines that will get you started
on your insect management strategies. First, we must
realize insects can attack roots, stems, leaves, flowers and
fruits at any growth stage. Many different insects attack
vegetable crops and it is impossible to know from one
season to the next which of these pests will cause
problems. Some cause problems every year while others
rarely appear. There are also many insects that are
beneficial, and in some instances essential, to producing
vegetables. Obviously it is best if we can learn the
difference between harmful insects and beneficial insects.
Some common insects that attack underground plant
parts are wireworms (the larval stage of the click beetle),
cutworms, mole crickets, grubs and lesser cornstalk
borers. (The publication mentioned above provides more
in depth information about each insect)
Chewing insects that feed on leaves and stems are
primarily caterpillars and some beetles. Be on the lookout
for the following caterpillars: beet armyworm, fall
armyworm, southern' armyworm, yellow striped army
worm, loopers (especially cole crops like cabbage,
collards, cauliflower, broccoli), tomato hornworm and
bean leaf rollers. A few of the unwelcome beetles are
Colorado potato beetle, Mexican bean beetle, cucumber
beetle and flea beetles. Other leaf feeding pests are leaf
minors and pinworms
Piercing and sucking insects that feed on the plants'
leaves and stems are aphids, leaf footed plant bugs,
leafhoppers, silver leaf whitefly, spider mites, stinkbugs
and thrips.
Problem pests that feed on seeds, pods and fruits are the
corn earworms, pickle worms, cow pea curculios, pepper
worms, potato tuber worms, stink bugs, tomato hornworm
and wireworms.
Yikes, what can we do about all of these pesky insects?
Follow these guidelines to help reduce unwelcome garden
pests:

* Rotate the individual crops or families of crops within
the garden so that the same vegetable is not grown in the
same location more than once every.three years.
* Till or plow the soil well in advance of planting and
pay particular attention to a plot that has previously been
in grass. The garden should be well plowed and free of
weeds, grass, etc., at least 30 days prior to planting. Add
organic matter in the form of compost.
* Randomly select plants and monitor or scout the
garden twice weekly. This includes inspecting the plants
from the bud to the soil including both upper and lower
leaf surface.
* Often large insects can be removed by hand and
destroyed without use of chemicals; this should be
practiced if possible. They will sink and drown if put in a
container of soapy water.
* Learn to identify beneficial'insects (praying mantis,
.spiders, big-eyed bugs/assassin bugs, lady beetles, and all
wasps). Often chemicals are used in error against these
beneficial.
* Learn to properly identify garden pests and use

chemicals are used in
error against these
beneficial.

chemicals oily when a serious pest problem exists.
Carefully follow all directions on labels.
* Insecticides should be carefully selected to control
the pest in question or to reduce its numbers so that the
garden will efficiently produce. Do not expect any
insecticide to kill 100 percent of the pest in question and
do not keep spraying or adding insecticide to accomplish
this false goal.
* When a chemical is used, be sure to spray the plant
thoroughly so as to contact all tissue surface.
* In order to reduce bee and other pollinator mortality,
sprays are best applied late in the afternoon or early
evening hours. Also, many garden pests are night feeders
so this spraying schedule often accomplishes more. To
reduce spray bur, make sure the plants are not under
moisture stress. It is best to irrigate the garden thoroughly
before spraying.
* When baits are used they should be applied late in the
afternoon since most insects (cutworms, crickets, etc.)
that respond to baits are night feeders.
* Sprays usually give better results than dusts. In many
cases dusts will drift and kill many beneficial arthropods.
Also, dusts are easily washed off by rain and irrigation, or
blown off by wind, and it usually requires more actual
insecticide in the dust form than in the spray form to
accomplish the same degree of control.
* Harvest the fruits, seeds, leaves, etc., as soon as they
are ripe. Allowing over-ripe fruits to remain on the plants
often invites additional insect, rat, and/or mice problems.
* As soon as a plant is no longer productive remove it
from the garden and destroy it. Do not pull it up and leave
it in the garden area.
* When the entire gardening project is over, cut down
all remaining plants and plow them into the soil.
* Do not use garden vegetable plants in any form to add
to a mulch bed or compost bin. Vegetable plants can
harbor insects, disease organisms, and nematodes that can
easily survive organic decomposition.

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT Happy First Birthday


On the importance of immunizations Lathan Garrard


By Yesenia Delgado L.P.N.
Suwannee County Health Department
The Suwannee County Health Delartment joins the
Centers of Disease Control in recognizing August as
National Immunization Awareness Month. Our goal is to
stress the importance of receiving routine, up-to-date
immunizations. Vaccines are safe and effective
protection. By staying current on recommended
vaccinations, individuals can protect themselves, their
families and loved ones from disease. Because children
are particularly vulnerable to infection, most vaccines are
given during the first 5 to 6 years of life. The Suwannee
County Health Department offers immunizations for
children 0-18 years of age for free but there is a cost for
adult immunizations. Several vaccines are required for
kindergarten and 7th grade admission. Other vaccines are
recommended throughout adolescent and adult years.
International travelers may require even.more
immunizations.
Are you wondering if you and your family members
are up-to-date with immunizations? The following are
brief summaries of recommended immunizations for
infants, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Please keep in
mind that these are recommendations for healthy
individuals. Persons considered medically high-risk may
need m6re or fewer immunizations:
Infants/children:
Birth: Hepatitis B
2 months: DTaP, Hepatitis B, Hib, PCV
(pneumococcal), Rotavirus, and Polio
4 months: DTaP, Hepatitis B, Hib, PCV
(pneumococcal), Rotavirus, and Polio
6 months: DTaP, Hepatitis B, Hib, PCV
(pneumococcal), Rotavirus, and Polio
12 months: MMR#1, Varicella (chickenpox), Hib,
Hepatitis A and PCV (pneumococcal)
15-18 months: DTaP and Hepatitis A
4-6 years: Polio, DTaP, and MMR #2
Adolescents:
11-12 years: Tdap, Meningococcal, and HPV (3 doses
for girls only).
In addition, Children 6 months through 18 years of age
need an annual seasonal flu vaccine.
If a child or adolescent did not receive all
recommended vaccines on time, they should get them as
soon as possible. It's never too late to vaccinate!
Adults: Adults (19-26 years): Tdap or Td, HPV (3
doses for women only), Varicella if never had the disease

and not immunized as a child, MMR if never fully
immunized as a child.
Adults (27-49): Tdap or Td, Varicella if never had the
disease and not immunized as a child, and MMR if never
fully immunized as a child.
Adults (50-59): Tdap or Td, Varicella if never had the
disease and not immunized as a child, and the annual flu
vaccine.
Adults (60-64): Tdap or Td, Varicella if never had the
disease and not immunized as a child, Zoster (shingles),
and the annual flu vaccine.
Adults (65+): Td booster every 10 years, Varicella if
never had the disease and not immunized as a child,
Zoster (shingles), Pneumococcal, and the annual flu
vaccine.
Many people are concerned about the novel H1N1 flu
virus. Trials are underway on a novel H1N1 flu virus
vaccine that is expected to be released later this year. The
CDC is determining who should receive this vaccine first
if there isn't enough for everyone who would want it.
Until there is an immunization for the novel HIN1 virus
available, the CDC recommends that you take the
following prevention steps: -receive a seasonal flu
vaccination -wash hands often with soap and water
-cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when
coughing and sneezing
-try not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth with your
hands
-avoid close contact with people who are ill, and
-stay home if you are sick for at least 7 days or
symptom-free for 24 hours.
If you have questions about you or your child's shot
records, please contact your primary care physician or
the Suwannee County Health Department at 386-362-
2708for more information. Immunizations are available
at the Live Oak Clinic Monday -Friday from 8:00am-
11:00am and 1:00pm until 4:00pm. Immunizations are
available at the Branford Clinic on Thursdays by
appointment; please call 386-935-1133 for assistance.

Boy Scout Troop 693
takes a trip to Hawthorne

By Tom Burnett
Six boys and three adults spent an exciting week at
Camp Shands Boy Scout Reservation in Hawthorne this
summer. Merit badges, life skills and aquatic activities
filled the day: Emergency preparedness, first aid, knot
tying, Lifesaving, archery, shotgun shooting, cooking,
canoeing, swimming, basket weaving and making pottery.
The camp calendar was filled with so many merit
badges and adventures, it would probably take at least
four weeks for one scout to do most of them.
The scouts spent their evening hours were filled with
campfires, watching members of the Order of the Arrow
doing Indian dances, a movie and free time.
The Boy Scouting program offers more than 120 merit
badges. These badges expose the scouts to adventure,
science, academics, personal responsibility, vocations, Scouts waiti
and new hobbies. Twenty-one of these must be earned in
order to qualify for the rank of Eagle Scout. Of those 21, having comI
twelve must be earned from a pool of required ones. Scouts who

OUR VI
Suwannee Democrat

Knock-down,

drag-out

democracy
More than an hour before the
start of Wednesday's town hall
meeting with Congressman Allen
SBoyd, it was standing room only
Sand then some at City Hall.
Roughly 250 folks were
crammed into a room meant for
136. Tension rose as those stand-
ing in the aisles feared they'd be
forcedto leave. Arid when word
filtered out that nearly an equal
number had been turned away at
the door, things really started to
heat up.
It didn't look good for democ-
racy.*Based on what we'd been
seeing at other town hall meet-
ings across America - folks wres-
tled away from the microphone,
speakers heckled and jeered into
silence - it looked as if Live Oak
might give itself a big black eye
Wednesday afternoon.
It didn't happen.
The crowd was raucous and at
times plenty loud. But everybody
who was called on to speak got
to say his or her piece. Some-
times they had to speak up to be
heard, but that's just fine, in our
view.
Democracy is a rough and
tumble business. Always has
been. We're a passionate people,
and we don't sit quietly with our
hands in our laps as we debate
the things that matter most to us.
The issue isn't whether we
agree with all that was said
Wednesday. It's that speech was-
n't suppressed, either by brute
Force or intimidation. And not
only did folks get to talk and be
heard, they actually listened, if
grudgingly, to what their con-
gressman had to say.
All in all, a good day for
democracy, in all its rough-hewn
glory.

Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak your mind! How? By call-
ing the Suwannee Democrat Rant and Rave hotline. The hotline'nev-
er closes and is your way to let it out. You can let everyone know how
you feel - as long as you express yourself in a respectful way.
Note: In written entries to Rant and Rave, errors in spelling, gram-
mar or punctuation are those of the authors.

I would like to respond to the individual (Aug 7) that stated "If you
don't like it move" I have lived here all my life! How can you say
"nothing will improve or change by making the county wet"? It's not
so much as the alcohol sales but the things that go along with the priv-
ilege such as nicer restaurants, jobs, etc. How can you say just be-
cause there is not community college we have "very few young
adults" maybe you need to look beyond your door steps. We have
quite a few! For entertainment we as a family or as young adults have
to go out of the county for entertainment such as the movies, skating,
to a nice restaurant. Think of the jobs not to mention extra income for
the county but you would rather get extra income from animal license
or increased taxes!! Talk about a nice imagination!

I just read about the "citywide curfew" idea, it may work or it may
not. How about a sting operation? Put out the word that a spanish
household will have a significant amount of money on payday, then
put officers inside the home or on a stakeout. This could vary well
prevent bloodshed.
MEU
It is unbelievable that Live Oak has been the victim of at least 24
armed robberies!
As a retired Deputy Sheriff from South Florida it strikes me as very
odd that law enforcement has been unable to apprehend these people.
Not only that, but why put in the newspaper that they have several
robbery detectives coming to town from T.P.D.? Is that to tip off the
suspects to lay low for awhile, and then resume their dirty deeds when
the heat is off? Would it not have been more prudent to say nothing
and catch the suspects with stakeouts etc. without tipping them off?
Was the ad placed to try to show the public that something was be-
ing done, (while letting the suspects in on their plans?).
I assume most folks homes are protected, at least out in the suburbs
where we live.

Consider a curfew? Odds are the same group of thugs are targeting
the same population of illegal immigrants in the same trailer park and
the Suwannee Democrat suggests Martial Law for all of Live Oak's
law abiding adult citizens? Not only is this Communisim but it's also
a pending lawsuit against the city. Bad idea.

Love this column & it should run twice wkly. It promotes a free
flow of thought & opinion. I will also help with petitions etc.,,&
Bobby probably will too! The leadership should come from the
Chamber & the Tourism & Economic Devel. councils. That is what
taxpayers fund them for! If not, a non-profit corp.must be formed
etc. I did the homework already. Ya'll quit pickin' on Bobby, I'll
meet you for beer & pizza outta this co. any Sunday you want Bob-
Sby. I think I'll quit my job, quit payin' the bills (& taxes) & let the
church provide for everything, but won;t have no coins for when the
plate comes around. As far as politico's & lifetime high paying jobs
go, I've been warning' you folks about this right here in good ol'
Suwannee Co. Try writing your state senator about chartering this
county.

I rarely drink liquor or wine, but feel I should have the right to if
I want, I would be very happy to assist with petitions and whatever
else needs done accomplish this. No place in Fl. is going to remain
rural and with 40k residents we do indeed have enough young peo-
ple that want, need, & deserve educational and recreational opprotu-
nities. As far as moving goes, 'I regret ever moving here, but will
strive to contribute anyway possible to our community now that we
are here. If I Could sell enough bootleg liquor, I might be able to
move!!!

It is time the commissioners left it up to the people to vote for what
they want. And for the person inviting Bobby to church to find what
he is looking for on Sundays, at my church we have communion
every Sunday and have communion wine. All these people hiding
behind Christianity as an excuse for no drinking, show me in the
Bible where it says no drinking. Its says not to get drunk, it doesn't
say no drinking at all. Ever heard of the Last Supper?


ONLINE

OPPORTUNITY


QUESTION

OF THE WEEK

Do you think America's healthco
system is in need of reform?


Once again, a pointless argument. We do have an 1-75 inter-
change along with 3 on I-10 in Suwannee Co.These represent a huge
potential of untapped investment. They are simply sitting there and
development on these corridors would have little impact on our rur-
al setting. Occupational license fees are the last thing we need if we
want commercial investment and a sales tax increase on all ready
over burdened residents to build useless roads won't be welcome ei-
ther. The 249 repavement is a. poor job and appears unfinished. Our
teenager and friends spend most of their time at the rivers by the way.
Perhaps you need to move, I understand Saudi Arabia has lots of land
and imprisons people for alcohol, sound like paradise?

The debate goes far beyond liquor, which I don't drink. It is about
the hypocrisy and double standards permitting one groups'spiritual
beliefs to influence legislation that probably does have a negative
economic effect on all to some extent. Drinking in your dark private
clubs is akin to the sinlesss" casting stones. The civic leadership is
terrified of losing church support for the lucrative cushy jobs they
work so hard to get. Feel free to base this supposed moral superior-
ity on devils, golden salamanders, flying camels or talking snakes
but please quit using it to interfere with others freedom & the law of
the land. Does not the Bible teach tolerance? Turn off GTV & watch
the news, American people are tired of unresponsive, self serving
elected officials & increasing gov't control, possibly to the point of
violence, not for the first time.

Now our county commissioners can take full credit for the suc-
cess or failure of their current terms. Their constant micro manag-
ing and lack of vision will come into view as you will soon have less
county services and people will be hired on their politics not their
abilities.

Jesse Caruthers quote about the broadband infrastructure being
brought into the area where he admits he did not know or understand
how vital it is to businesses reminds me of the (former) Rep. Ted
Stevens when he tried to describe the Internet as a "series of tubes".
Ignorance is bliss in Suwanee county too I guess.

For those people who believe it is now ok to hate, the Lord hasn't
sanctioned it. The "immigrants" you care so little for are often not
immigrants at all, but 4th and 5th generation Americans from Texas
and the Southwest. Would you be worrying more about home iziva-
sions if they were happening to 4th and 5th generation Europeans?
U,,
Doesn't the city have some clunkers for cash?

War and Piece was an easier read and flowed more fluently than
an episode of the Mayor's Corer. Perhaps it should be renamed the
Mayor's Lower 40.

To the city of Live Oak. Weed killer can be purchased at a variety
of locations in the area. Why don't you try using some on your mul-
ti million dollar beautification projects that are overgrown with
weeds?

It is nice to know we have a county commission that is smarter
than the professionals they hire. The Election process some how
stimulates brain growth and gives them expertise in areas they have
absolutely no education or experience in.

This may be my last rant. I have been marked for extermination by
Obama's death panel. I hope the shot is clean and true. I don't have
any health insurance.

The meeting was advertised on all local.radio stations, in the pa-
per and national TV (CBS), not sure why because the location was
unacceptable due to it\Vs size, therefore only a limited number of
people wishing to express their concerns could be heard. I believe I
speak for the masses who attended. I am very disappointed and frus-
trated by the time wasted. We must do everything we can to preserve
this Nation for our children and grandchildren. We have no time to
waste, we must be heard before it is too late!

TOWN HALL MEETING WITH ALLEN BOYD




SOUTH COUNTY RESOLVE


Branford contingent's
message was loud and
clear: We're not happy
with federal healthcare
proposals

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston @ gaflnews.com
There was a large Branford area pres-
ence at Congressman Allen Boyd's town
forum Wednesday at Live Oak City Hall.
As the room began to pack with people
from all over the area, Branford folks


were not hard to find, most sitting togeth-
er and right up front. Some who came in
late, somehow still managed to make their
way to the front of the densely pack room.
The vast majority of Branford area natives
who showed up were staunchly opposed
to the healthcare bill.
"I'm here to suggest that it seems we
need regulators to regulate the regulators,"
said Art Chadwick of O'Brien.
Alex Winnett of Branford says he op-
poses the healthcare bill. "That's why I'm
here," said Winnett. "To-let him know so
many of us are against it."
Susan Newland said she was there to
represent senior citizens.
"On behalf of senior citizens such as


O


myself, I want him to know we will not
go quietly into the night," said Newland.
Judith Allen, plso from the Branford
area, agreed. "We have paid into this sys-
tem for a long time and we deserve to be
heard," said Allen. "People who don't take
care of their old become a barbaric coun-
try."
Ethel Howze, of O'Brien, said she was
also there to hear more about what would
happen to her healthcare as a senior citi-
zen.
"The philosophy of government that's
going on in Washington is atrocious," said
Eddy Robert, a Branford farmer who

Brown, followed by roaring ap-
plause.
"I didn't pull any punches,"
Brown, who has been flying air-
planes since he was six years old,
said in an interview following the
meeting. Brown, who has lived in
McAlpin for the past 20 years,
said he wanted to tell the Con-
gressman up front what he thinks
of politicians. Next, he asked
Boyd if politicians would be cov-
ered by the same healthcare sys-
tem as everyone else, or if they
would be under a different sys-
tem for federal employees.
"He never did answer my ques-
tion," said Brown. Brown says he
still respects Boyd for coming
out to hear the public's views. He
even publicly spoke out at the
meeting against those who were
shouting over Boyd while he was
speaking. "I admonished the peo-
ple to respect the Congressman,"
he said.
Brown, who will only say of
Shis age, "Well, I'm somewhere in
my 80's," is a registered Indepen-
dent, both politically and in tem-
perment. "I still fly," said Brown,
"I lost most of the use of my legs,
but I can climb in the airplane, no
problem." Brown has been flying
since his first time in southern In-
diana when he was.six years old.
"I feel if I ever have to be
grounded, I'll just give up," he
said. "Some people play golf,
some go to clubs," he paused and
chuckled a little. "Mine's always
been aircrafts"
One would assume Brown flew
fighter planes during WWII, but
he was actually in the infantry. To
fly, Brown says he would have
had to sign up for the duration of
the war. "I said no way," he said
matter-of-factly. Brown, who was
drafted, said "I didn't have a
choice anyway, they came and
got me." Instead, he fought in the
infantry in the South Pacific.
"I've been concerned for some-
time," said Brown of the current

Although some of the
crowd began to diminish
near the end of the meet-
ing, most of those from
Branford stayed to the
very end. Much of the re-
action following the meet-

of County Commissioner

was very pleased with the

this is America at its best.

Allen Boyd answered the

"He did not answer one

spun around the issue,"
said Peggy Fry of the

Food for Thought

I Am Somebody!
We know a man is what he thinks he is [Prov. 23:7].
Paul told us to have pure thoughts [Phil. 4:8]. Let
me reminds a few facts:
1) God Loves Us! The God who spoke this world
into existence loves us [Gen. 1]. He loves us
enough that He sent Jesus to die for us [Jn. 3:16;
Rom. 5:8]. Everything He gives me is good and
perfect [James 1:17]. We can talk to Him at anytime
[Heb. 4:16].
2) Jesus Died For Us! Jesus clothed Himself with
flesh [Jn. 1:1-4, 14], came to this earth and lived a
perfect life [I Pet. 2:2], died the perfect death [I Jn.
2:2], just for us!
3) Abundant Life Is Promised To Us! Jesus came
to give us that life [John 10:10]. We are promised
every spiritual blessing in Christ [Eph. 1:3]. We are
made righteous through His death [II Cor. 5:21].
4) Heaven Is Prepared For Us! Jesus declared He
was leaving, preparing and returning [John 14:1-6].
The thought of eternity with God as our inheritance
for those who remain faithful is just wonderful!
That is why Paul said, "rejoice always" [I Thess.
5:6]. Yes, in Jesus we are somebody!

White Springs -

soldier home

By Jo Ross ABOVE. AND BELOW: The
JASPER - More than 300 bright yellow ribbons g,,, streets of White Springs are
line the streets of White Springs as townsfolk await i. lined with yellow ribbons in
the return of Army Specialist Thomas Cowart, who celebration of Army Specialist
spent the last year in Iraq. Thomas Cowart's return home.
Cowart is the son of Donald and Marilyn Cowart,
and the grandson of John and Pauline Morgan, of
White Springs. He has been serving in the Army for
the past four years and will be returning stateside
later this week.
In anticipation of his return, his mother, father,
aunts and uncle have been preparing yellow bows,

White Springs Dollar General Store.
'Ever wonder where the yellow ribbon tradition " I
came from? Most music historians trace the custom
to a 19th century Civil War song about a prisoner's
return home from Andersonville Prison. In 1973
Tony Orlando and Dawn recorded the number one -,
song of the year and their all-time classic "Tie a
Yellow Ribbon Rouiid the Old Oak Tree."

Marcus Edwards says football is in his blood


I Edwards at the University

Florida. -Photos: Submitted


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

MAYO - Although he was a standout
wide receiver at University of South
Florida and recently landed a much-
coveted spot as wide receivers coach at
Wagner College in New York, Marcus
Edwards has not forgotten his roots. "I'm
proud to be from a small town," said
Marcus. "Everybody knows everybody. I
enjoyed growing up there, playing sports,
and my friends."
"I grew up hearing stories about my dad
playing football for Lafayette. My mom
was always real athletic too. She played
basketball," said Marcus Edwards, 23,
whose father, Joseph, who now lives in
Oregon, was also a star football player at
Lafayette High School. "It is in my
blood."
Modest and laid back, Marcus is
hesitant to admit being one of Mayo's star
athletes or "something like that." He
excelled at baseball, basketball, and even
track, as well as his favorite sport,
football. "I played sports year around,"
said Mardus. As a football player, he was
a two-time All-State performer in Class A
and had 22 catches for 490 yards and
eight touchdowns as a senior. Still, despite
all the fame sports brought him, Marcus
was known in Mayo simply as "Joe's
son". "Everybody around town knew me
as Joseph's son," Marcus said proudly. "I
was never Marcus, just 'Joe's son'."
Marcus was recruited during high
school by the University of South Florida
and given a full scholarship. While
playing for USF, Marcus was a.productive
wide receiver and a three-year starter,
hauling in 73 passes for 928 yards and
three touchdowns. He also earned a
degree at USF and was a two-time Big
East Academic All-Star Team member.
However, Marcus is the first to admit
he isn't perfect. Throughout his youth he
struggled with shyness. "I was never a
public speaker. I was shy and I'd get kind
of nervous," said Marcus. "I majored in
communications because I wanted to
break that habit."
It was his mother, Ann Murphy, who
encouraged him to pursue a degree in
communications. "In order to get
anywhere in life, you're going to have to
get in front of people," said Ann as she
looked at a picture of Marcus afte. a
Lafayette High football game displayed
on her desk at the Suwannee Sheriff's
Office. "When you're shy, it is important
to get into something that you're gonna
haven't be forced to do that."
Marcus says his proudest moment was
not on the gridiron, but on stage at USF's
graduation ceremony. "It was something
my mom always wanted for me. My


commencement in 2007.


mom's my greatest inspiration," Marcus
said in his softspoken, heartfelt tone.
"She's done everything she needed to do
(as a mother) and more. She never put
herself first."
"That one's my baby," Ann said of her
youngest child. "He never meets a
stranger. He has the same smile for
everybody." Ann, who is also soft-spoken
and possesses the same sweet, sometimes
shy personality as her son, says New York
seems very far away and she misses
Marcus. However, she encourages him to
follow his dreams. "I miss him, but I
understand that you have to make a move
to get your dreams accomplished," said
Ann.
After graduation, it did not take Marcus
long to realize that coaching football was
what he wanted to do. Now, he's beyond
excited to have landed a job coaching the
Seahawks at Wagner College. "Coaching
is the next best thing," said Marcus. "I can
still be around the game."
"We're excited to add Marcus Edwards
to the Wagner program, " said Walt
Hameline, head coach and athletic
director at Wagner College, in a Wagner
press release. "As a top player and student
at a major college program in the Big
East, Marcus knows what it takes to
compete on a high level both on and off
the field. He will serve as a mentor and a
role model for our wide receiving corps
and we are fortunate to add him to our
staff."
Marcus said being role model and -
inspiring young men is what he loves
most about coaching. "Football isn't just a
sport. It teaches you a lot of life-lessons,
like responsibility and loyalty. It is about
growing not only as a football player, but
as a man," said Marcus, whose voice
hardens for the first time during the
interview. "Helping another man realize
that," Marcus pauses as he searches for
the right words to express the feeling. "It
is really rewarding, hard to describe."


Marcus Edwards says his
proudest moment.was not on
the gridiron, but on stage at
USF's graduation ceremony.
"It was something my mom
always wanted for me. My
mom's my greatest
inspiration," Marcus said in
his softspoken, heartfelt tone.
"She's done everything she
needed to do and more. She
never put herself first."


EMS funding falling short


County considering raising
special assessment

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews:com

MAYO - Lafayette County's
Emergency Management Services is in
serious financial trouble. County
Commissioners discussed Monday
raising the special assessment from $100
to $150 per household. According to
Clerk of Court Ricky Lyons, the general
fund has suffered greatly in the past year


due to a large decrease in state revenue
and deflated land value. EMS brings in
little revenue and is funded almost
entirely by the county. Therefore, with
the county's general fund suffering under
tough economic times, the county is
forced to cut back on EMS funding,
according to discussion by county
officials Monday.
With so many uninsured citizens in
Lafayette County, there is a lot of
pressure on EMS. "People who have no
insurance, you can't just leave them,"
said EMS director Donnie Land.
"However, someone has to pay that bill."

Lace Jelks of Live Oak is on trial for the November 2008
murder of Elizabeth Jones. Jelks is pictured here with her
defense team in the Suwannee County Courthouse.

The parents speak


Continued From Page 1A

"most athletic" by her
senior class. He was a
leader in FFA, well .
known and well liked.
They were Suwannee
High classmates in 1976.
And both are parents
affected by the tragedy)
that took place Nov. 15.
"It shouldn't have gone
that far. Somebody should
have broken it up,"'said
Sandra Neal about losing
her daughter Elizabeth,
Jones. Jones spoke while
seated outside a Live Oak
courtroom Wednesday
"My heart cries for m
daughter and my heart
cries for Sandra and her
daughter," said Larry
Jelks Sr. He is the father
of Lace Jelks, the woman
on trial for Jones' murder.
Both Neal and Larry
Jelks have appeared in
court this week.
Since her daughter's
passing, it's been difficult
to cope, Neal said.
"Devastated. It just
feels empty. I can't laugh
with her no more. I can't
see her no more, and
everything that was hers
has been left behind."
Equally hard, Neal said,
has been the separation
from her grandchildren.
"It's been over seven
months since I've seen
my grandson," Neal said.
Elizabeth Jones had two
children: Jerica, 13, and
Jeffrey, 8.
The eldest child lives
with Neal, and the
youngest lives with his
father.
For Neal, it's been a
challenge to discipline her
teenage granddaughter
alone.
"Jerica wasn't coping
well when it first
happened and she's not
coping now," Neal said.
"Her mother would get in
behind her when she
talked back, but now her
mother is gone."
In recent weeks things
have gotten a little better,
however.


Neal said her
granddaughter j'
,uccessfw.11 at de a
program held e) BIlT' cal
schools this .umimer and
she is registered to attend
a private school in the
fall.
For the family of Lace
Jelks,' tings liaven't been
easy either.
'Mventally it broke her
down,'"said Larry Jelks,
' Lae's father. "She wish i
had never happened."
Lace Jelks has four
children. The y igest,
ages three and onU, live
-with Jelks' mother The
elder t\ o. ages fiVe and
si\, li\e \ ith their
paternal grandmother,
Larry Jelks said.
"It's been rough. It's
been a strain on all of us,
he said.'
The family has
managed to draw close
despite regular visits to
see Lace in jail.
"We go visit her in
Madison to talk and pray
with her," Larry Jelks
said. "We all pitch in. It's
been a situation to make
our family come together
and make us realize that,
like other families, we're
not untouchable."
As Thursday
approached, both Sandra
Neal and Larry Jelks
awaited the end of the
trial. Each wished the bes
for the other and hoped tc
Walk away with a sense o
closure.
"I feel that the pain wil
somewhat be soothed,
that it will ease the pain,
so that I can go on from
here," Neal said.
Jelks wants to see his
daughter released.
"I'm hoping that the
law ... that she gets
acquitted to be perfectly
honest with you," he said
"I cannot see her getting
the sentence that they
charge her with. It was a
Senseless fight. You can't
take two wrongs and
make a right, but nothing
is going to go
unpunished."


Elizabeth Shawnee Jones," said prosecutor Craig
SJacobsen, as he pointed to the smiling face of the woman
killed outside a Live Oak nightclub on Nov 15.
He then redisplayed pictures of'that same woman lying
cold and lifeless, covered with stab wounds, on a hospital
gurney.
"Does that look random to you?" Jacobsen asked
jurors. "Those stabs were all targeted for one area," he
said, as he took his hand and placed it on his chest just
over his heart.
He suggested that Elizabeth Jones had not threatened
Jelks to the extent necessary to lose her life.
"Fist fighting is going to rise and give way to that great
imminent fear or great bodily (harm or) death? I don't
think so," he said.
He reiterated his characterization of Jelks the night
Elizabeth Jones died.
S"All the evidence shows that light that Lace Jelks was
agry, belligerent and wanted to fight. This was plain old
Sviscous killing," he said before taking his seat.
The courtroom then turned its attention to Dan Clark,
SJelks' defense attorney.
"I don't have a fancy PowerPoint, all I have are words
to try to show you what happened that night," Clark said.
"Don't develop tunnel vision," he urged jurors.
Clark suggested that the constant sight of the
photographed images of Jones' body should not be a
hindrance to jurors and their ability to distinguish the
facts in the case.
"Those are a reflection of the wild failings of a person
it trying to fend off attack," he said.
"Evaluate the defendant's actions under the situation
she found herself in," Clark said. "Would a reasonable
person be in fear?"
He said blame should be pointed at the murdered
woman and her younger sister.
"The only premeditation was by Lashonda Walker to
'get those bitches' and that premeditation was the same
of Liz Jones," Clark said. "Liz Jones faced the
consequences of sin in this case, of hubris, of wanting to
prove something."
S Before returning to his seat, Clark suggested that the
state had not been able "to remove any reasonable doubt
that the deadly force that was used in this case was
justifiable" by Jelks.
"She only armed herself once she was under attack,"
he said.
Jacobsen made a short rebuttal.
"Lace Jelks wasn't satisfied with pushing Liz in the
face, she wasn't satisfied with throwing a drink in Liz's
face ... Lace said in her statement to police that she went
outside thinking 'I wanted to fight her one-on-one',"
Jacobsen reiterated.
"How can a ok at the facts and see the injuries
that were di-eh Jonead.say 'Lace, waas
justified in '
Jurors chose to go to lunch before they began
deliberations Thursday afternoon.
The day before jurors had heard testimony from
Monica Jones, the first cousin of Elizabeth Jones and


,t

f


second cousin of Lace Jelks. And on Tuesday, Det. Sgt.
Ron Shaw of the Live Oak Police Department, Det.
Justin Bates and Kelli Coulter - a former friend of Jelks -
took the stand.
Shaw sat in the witness Eand r.d identified a blood-
soiled white shirt wrapped in investigative plastic as the
garment worn by Elizabeth Jones the night she died.
Shaw also acknowledged that he was the person
responsible for capturing several images of Jones' body
as it lay uncovered upon a gurney.
Jelks lowered her head into her palm as those images
of Jones were displayed on two large screens affixed to
the courtroom wall. She wiped her wet cheek.
Bates then testified. He said that he had read Jelks her
Miranda rights before she agreed to an interview on Nov.
15.
"Am I going to go to prison for this?" Jelks had asked.
"I don't know," Bates replied, "they're all different."
Those statements were taken from the interview
transcript.
While on the stand Bates said, "(Jelks) made the
statement that she had been drinking and was drunk" that
night. "She said she knew there was a knife in her sister's
truck, there was a bunch of people around, she didn't
know what to do so she just stabbed."
, Coulter, who like Jelks was initially charged with
second-degree murder, but later accepted a plea deal with
a reduced sentence of felony tampering with evidence,
five years' probation and two years' house arrest, took the
stand next.
"They bumped into each other in the middle of the
floor," Coulter said. "Then Lace slapped Elizabeth."
. Coulter testified that both parties were asked to leave
the club.
"I heard Lace say 'they're hitting me' at the back of the
vehicle," Coulter said. At which point, Coulter said she
reached over to unlock the driver's side door. Coulter
said she was slapped in the face by a relative of Elizabeth
Jones.
A scuffle ensued between Lace Jelks and Elizabeth
Jones inside the open space of the passenger door,
Coulter said.
"They were right beside me fighting. I didn't see
.(Lace) stab (Liz)," Coulter told Jacobsen. "I just seen
(Liz) laying on the ground."
Monica Jones testified that it was Coulter who
brandished the knife that was used to stab Liz Jones.
'Trouble is easy to get into but.hard to get out of,"
Monica Jones said she warned her cousin Elizabeth
before the fight escalated outside Club Illusions.
"Lace said I'm not scared of you," Monica testified.
"Elizabeth said I'm not scared of you either. I was trying
to pull Elizabeth back."
"They were both my cousins, I was trying to break it
up."
Monica Jones said Liz and Lace were fighting in the
passenger doorway of the green Durango.
"Liz went limp," Monica said, "I didn't pull her out,
because I was nervous when I saw her shaking."
Dr. Pankajumar Parikh, a Live Oak physician,
pronounced Jones dead in an emergency room at Shands
Live Oak around 4 a.m. on Nov. 15.


RAUCOUS DEBATE DRAWS NEARLY 500


Continued From Page 1A


tame, at least compared to
the spectacles seen at other
such gatherings around the
nation of late.
With about 250 crowded
into the council chambers,
100 or more inside the
building -listening at the
door and at least 100 more
milling around outside, the
meeting illustrated just how
controversial the issue of
healthcare has become.
However, prior to the
Congressman's appearance,
most in attendance seemed
tp share.the attitude of Live
Oak's George Mortimor.
"I'm just here to hear
what he has to say," said
Mortimor. "At least he


Bash is SaturdayA showed up, whereas a lot of
Sat rday politicians have backed
down."
Continued From Page 1A Taylor. Also for the kids, a Healthcare was the hot
moonbounce and bbstacle topic in the room even
"Since we began doing course., before Boyd took center
this, the event has grown Taylor wanted to remind stage. The room was filled
each year," said Taylor. residents the event is for with folks wearing
Free refreshments and K-12 students only. homemade T-shirts; hats
entertainment will be Students must be 'and holding signs made
available as well, said accompanied by a parent. with Sharpie and paint, with


phrases like "No Gov
Health" and "Let's hear the
truth."
"I'm against the
healthcare bill and you'll
hear the same sentiment
from 90 percent of the
people here," Theresa
Bownen of Live Oak said
before the meeting.
'"I wouldn't mind the
healthcare bill if it was
budget neutral," said Harry
Pace, also of Live Oak.
"I want to ask the
congressman.what it's
gonna cost us. They say it is
free. Well, nothing's free,"
said Suwannee County
resident Darien Holm.
Carol Henry, also of
Suwannee, was concerned
about her husband, a
veteran.
"My husband is a vet in
the VA nursing home he's
85 years old. With this
health care bill what's going
to happen with the vets, are
they just going to put him
out," she said.
Boyd began by speaking
about the current economic
crisis.


"This is a time that many
of us haven't seen before,"
he said. "The stimulus
package is starting to work."
The remark was
immediately followed by
shouts of "That's a lie!" and
"Show us how it's
working!"
Boyd didn't take long
getting down to business,
and the reason for the
massive turnout: healthcare.
"So we have to solve this
problem," said Boyd. "We
have to have healthy people
in our community to work
and go to school."
Boyd said he doesn't
approve of one of the
healthcare bills now being
circulated in the House,
HB3200, and wants
Congress to go back to the
drawing board.
"I would not vote on it if
it came out of the House
today," Boyd said. "One of
the things we asked
Congress to do was to slow
it down a bit."
At this point he was
interrupted by someone
shouting "Slow it down a
lot!" followed by claps and
cheers.
Monica Ling of Live Oak
stood before the crowd and
said she recently discovered
she had a lump in one of her
breasts but can't afford
health insurance after
leaving her job to care for
her two autistic children.
"I don't want to die but I
can't pay for my health
insurance," she said.
Mary Lou Sharp, also of
. Live Oak, said most people
believe the government
can't handle healthcare.
"I think it's a matter of
trust for people now than
just healthcare," she said.
'They don't trust the
government taking care of


healthcare."
Local resident Tommy
Moore agreed.
"I don't trust any of
them," said Moore. "No to
the healthcare leave it alone
and I'm not a Democrat or
Republican."
"I think it's a scam," said
Dave Teems of Live Oak.
"And it's going to tax us to
death."
Boyd said something has
to change.
S"Healthcare impacts
every aspect of every
family's life," said Boyd.
"The current system has
become more and more
inefficient as time passes."
Boyd said a responsible
healthcare reform should
have: lower cost for
everyone, improved access
to coverage and must be
paid for, not added to the
deficit. ,
After the meeting, most
folks were still
unpersuaded.
"He didn't answer the
questions," said local
residents Judith and Doug
Allen. "Someone needs to
answer these questions,"
. said Live Oak's Caroline
McKeithen.
"I was pleased with the
turnout, but Allen Boyd did
not answer the questions,"
remarked Barbara Gill,
Suwannee County
Republican Party
representative.
However, the majority of
those present were pleased
that so many Suwannee
County residents were
passionate enough about the
issues to turn out in such
numbers.
"I was inspired by the
will and passion of these
people in Suwannee
County," remarked one
unidentified visitor.

What to do about Michael

might be collusion by the

common sense by NFL
owners. He is not going to
guarantee a Super Bowl but
he will guarantee press

Whether or not he gets a
second chance to play

individual teams. No one in
the NFL owes him anything.
He is certainly an exciting
player to watch, he has
served his time, but there
should be no issue of

News from the FWC



FWC asks beachgoers to protect the hatchlings


Nesting season for three
species of endangered sea turtles
is well under way on the sandy
beaches along Florida's Atlantic
and Gulf of Mexico shores.
Eggs from threatened logger-
head, endangered green, and en-
dangered leatherback sea turtles
have been incubating in the
warm sadd for 45 days or more.
Soon baby sea turtles, or hatch-
lings, will begin their journey up
through the sand, across the
beach, into the waves and across
miles of open water out to the
weed lines. There they will feed
and grow, and many loggerheads
will return to Florida's coastal
waters as juveliile and subadults
to feed.
Female sea turtles often return
to nest on the same sandy beach-
es where they hatched.
Florida's beachfront residents
and visitors can help those


hatchlings make it safely to the
sea, according to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC).
"By following a few simple
guidelines, residents and visitors
can ensure those hatchlings will
reach the water safely and ensure
the cycle will continue far into
the future," said Dr. Robbin
Trindell of the FWC's Imperiled
Species Management Program.
"Both nesting females and hatch-
lings have evolved to find the
bright horizon over the open
ocean as they move across the
dark nighttime beach."
Beachfront lights, bright flash-
lights and lanterns on the beach
can confuse them, causing fe-
male sea turtles to leave without
nesting, and adults and hatch-
lings to become trapped on the
beach. The FWC urges beach
residents and visitors to keep the


beaches dark by managing
beachfront lighting.

* Turn off lights that are not
needed for human safety, and fo-
cus other lights directly where
they are needed, limiting the
amount of light spill or trespass
onto the nesting beach.
* Shield light sources and use
appropriate bulbs such as red or
amber LEDs or bug bulbs.
These bulbs emit a long-wave-
length light that is less likely to
confuse or disorient adult or
hatchling sea turtles on the
beach.
* If you must use a flashlight
on the beach, keep the beam fo-
cused on the ground in front of
you'. Do not point it down the
beach or toward the water.

As part of a grant from the
National Fish and Wildlife Foun-


dation, the FWC is offering a
Shield Loan program for proper-
ty owners in Brevard, Indian.
River, St. Lucie, Martin, Palm
Beach, Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee
and Collier counties. In addition
to the shield offer, a limited
number of amber LED bulbs are
available for beachfront prop-
erty owners who agree to
manage their lights to mini-
mize light trespass onto adja-
cent sea turtle nesting beaches
in those counties.
To find out more about this
program and to see if you
qualify to receive shields or
LED bulbs free of charge,
contact Chris Milne at 561-.
575-5408. Information on the
FWC Shield Loan Program
also is available at
MyFWC.com/SeaTurtle.
If you see eggs, an exposed
nest, hatchling sea turtles, or


an injured or dead turtle on the
beach, please contact the FWC
at 888-404-FWCC (404-3922).
Do not handle or collect eggs or
remove hatchlings from the
beach. All such activities with
sea turtles require a special per-
mitfrom the FWC.

26 FWC graduates ready

for woods and water duty


It's a tough job, but somebody's got
to do it, and a new class of Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) law enforcement grad-
uates are only too happy to take on the
task.
Twenty-six FWC recruits were
sworn in recently, and they are ready
to get into their trucks and boats and
onto their airboats and ATVs to begin
their jobs in the woods and on the wa-
ters of the state.
For many, it is a dream comes true.
"It's not a job for everyone," said
Capt. Rocky Clement of the FWC
academy. "The job is challenging and
yet extremely rewarding. What other
job allows you to be on an offshore
vessel one day and deep in a forest the
next? Just a job as an FWC officer."
The FWC recruits became officers
LAfter graduating from the Pat Thomas
KLaw Enforcement Academy in Talla-
hassee. Justice Ricky Polston of the
Florida Supreme Court was the guest
speaker at the graduation ceremony.
"Because of the separation of pow-
ers in our Florida Constitution, we de-
pend on each other in the other
branches of government," Polston
said. '"Together we can make Florida
the best it can.be. I am proud to be de-
pending on this graduating class, and I
thank them and the Commission for
their service to protect Florida's citi-
zens and natural resources."
The new officers attended the acade-
my for six months and received a wide
array of training, which included accu-
racy with firearms, vessel operation,
defensive tactics, all-terrain vehicle
operation and BUI/DUI identification.
They will spend an additional 14
weeks with a field-training officer.


SThe FWC's Division of Law En-
forcement protects and manages more
than 575 species of wildlife and more
than 700 species of fish. The division
patrols 34 million acres of public and
private land, 8,400 detailed miles of
tidal shoreline, 3 million acres of lakes
and 12,000 miles of rivers and
streams. FWC officers are authorized
to enforce all state laws and federal
fisheries and wildlife laws.


The graduates and the counties
to which they are assigned are
as follows:
* Jamie Allen - Levy

RELIGION

Sometimes we try too hard


By Derek Maul

Yesterday evening, at bible
study, the guys and I were talking
about
Christ's classic "Remain in the I
vine..." monologue. Here's verse
4, just as a reminder: "Remain in
me, and I will remain in you. No
branch can bear fruit by itself; it must
remain in the vine. Neither can you bear
fruit unless you remain in me." (read
John 15:1-17)
So then, because scripture is usually
best annotated by more scripture, we
turned to Galatians to get some ideas re-
garding what
Jesus possible meant by "bear fruit."
This is what we discovered; the words
are familiar to most people,.but they are
exceptionally helpful when paired with
John 15. "But the fruit of the Spirit is
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and
self-control. Against such things there is
no law." (Galatians 5:22-23)
"So, is Jesus being conditional here,",:
I asked. "Is he suggesting that we have
to work hard in order to earn some kind
of reward? Is he just offering another
kind of legalism? Jesus sure says 'IF' a
whole lot during the passage..."
"Well.no," our resident biologist
pointed out. "Fruit isn't something a
branch' works hard to produce. It shows.
up because it's connected to the vine."
So we talked about our pressing need

- especially as husbands and
'fathers - for more evidence of
patient, kindness, faithful-
ness, gentleness, self-control,
love, joy, and peace. Typical-
ly our response is to work
hard on our patience, be more
deliberate when it comes to
being kind, and beat our-
selves up when we fall short. In other
words "willing" ourselves to be better
men.
"If we want to love our wives more,"
I said, "then the best way is to move
closer to Jesus. If we want more pa-
tience in our relationships, then we
shouldn't try so hard; instead we need
to remain more connected to Jesus (Re-
main in me)... If we want more kindness
at home, then the best approach is to
grow in our relationship with Christ...."
We had an excellent discussion. It
made me think. It helped me - as I am
always doing, several times a week - to
reassess my priorities if I want to con-
tinue to grow.

Call no man father


By Fr Don Wilson


Is it biblically correct to address a
pastor or priest as "father" rather
than pastor or brother?
In the past, I have had critics
cite St. Matthew 23:9 as the
prohibition against calling their
pastor or priest by the title of
"Father":
"And do not call anyone on earth 'father,' for you have
one Father, and he is in heaven." (St. Matt 23:9)
They point out that Catholics, Anglicans and the Or-
thodox must not fully understand the scriptures, because
they call their pastor "father" which seems to be against
what the bible says.
Remember, it is important to consider all scripture in
context. For example, in Luke 14:26, Jesus states that to
be His disciple, you must "hate" your family and your-
self. There is more to this than just what is seen on the
surface. Let's consider the surrounding verses to "call no
man your father.":
"But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master,
even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man
your father upon the earth; for one is your Father, which
is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your
Master, even Christ." (St. Matt 23:8-10)
Some translations render it a little differently, but what
the verse says is that we are not to call anyone master,
teacher (Rabbi), or father. If that's the case, I really don't
know how to greet anyone anymore. Apparently, the
manners that my mother taught me are useless. For ex-
ample, I can't call Mr. Smith, "Mr." Smith anymore. Be-
cause, if we look at the etymology [the study of where
words come from] of "Mr.", Webster's New Collegiate
Dictionary indicates that it comes from the Middle Eng-
lish word mastere" which means "master". Since Jesus

said not to call anyone "master", I can't address anyone
as "Mr."
I am also going to have problems addressing my physi-
cian and dentist. If I examine the etymology of "Dr." it
derives from the Latin word for "teacher". Since Jesus
said to call no man "teacher", I can't address my doctor
as Dr. Smith and in fact, I am at a loss at what to call all
my teachers or what to call my own father. Could it be
that Jesus meant something else?
First, let's look at other passages in the Bible where the
apostles use the terms father in a spiritual sense:
"Even though you have ten thousand guardians in
Christ, you do not have many fathers, for in Christ Jesus
I became your father through the gospel." (1 Corinthians
4:15)
"But you know that Timothy has proved himself, be-
cause as a son with his father he has served with me in
the work of the gospel." (Philippians 2:22)
"For you know that we dealt with each of you as a fa-
ther deals with his own children..." (1 Thess 2:11)'
Even in the. Old Testament, we see that spiritual rela-
tionship. Elisha, when he saw Elijah (not his real father),
being taken up to heaven, cried out, "My father, my fa-
ther," (2 Kings 2:12).
St. Paul and St. John both use terms that represent a
spiritual fatherhood such as a priest or pastor would have
with his own congregation. Since the apostles use words,
speaking of their spiritual relationships, such as father,
son, and children, then let us consider the true meaning
of Jesus' focus.
Context shows us that Jesus was directing his words at

vacation school
"Crocodile Dock" came alive over the six evenings of
fun, food and fellowship. Bible Stories were demonstrat-
ed through drama, movies and crafts. The children waded
through make-shift swamps, desserts and the Red Sea.
The church building vibrated with songs and cheers as
the kids learned new praise songs. The results were so
successful that a pre-school Sunday School class and Ju-
nior Church will be added on Sunday mornings begin-
ning in September. One of our youth, Shelby, pictured
third from the right in the front row, will be baptized at
the morning service on Aug. 23. A very special guest will
be present as her older sister Anna arrives home from ac-
tive duty in Iraq.
e 'G)McAlpin Advent Christian Church invites our
triendi d neighbors to join us as a new year of activi-
ties begin this fall," Pastor Paul Bertolino stated.
The church is located at 17214 89th Road and the wor-
ship services begin at 10:55 a.m. For details and informa-

the Pharisees because, right before this statement, in St
Matthew 23, he derides them for their pride.
-They took pride in being called "father", "teacher", and
"master". A true spiritual father and teacher should not
have prideful characteristics.
. So, If someone condemns me for calling my priest "fa-
ther", I can live with that. But, to be consistent, he should
also condemn me for not hating my father, mother, wife
and children (St. Luke 14:26).
In fact, we see that it is biblically permissible to call a
pastor or priest, "father," like many denominations do.
May our Father in Heaven Bless you today and always.

The Works of the Flesh and


the Fruit of the Spirit

In the epistle to the Galatians, the apostle Paul contrasts the work
of the flesh and the fruit of the Spirit, and warns us that the works
of the flesh are contraryto the Spirit, and further, that those Who
practice them "shall not inherit the
kingdom of God." (Galatians 5.21) The
context of this warning is noteworthy. That
is, Paul has been telling the Galatians that
as 'Christians they need not follow the
letter of the Mosaic Law, including the
injunction to be circumcised. However, he
warns that although they are freed from
the Law by Christ's sacrifice, they are not
free to indulge the desires of the flesh.
Those who "walk in the Spirit" will
manifest the fruit of the Spirit, which Paul
tells ts. is "Love, joy, peace, patience,
4 kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, [and] self-control." (Galatians
5.22-23) In contrast, the works of the flesh
are "fornication, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, enmity,
strife, jealousy, anger, selfishness, dissension, party spirit, envy,
drunkenness, carousing, and the like." (Galatians 5.19-21) Despite
being freed from the dictates of the Law, as Christians, we must not
fall prey to the desires of the flesh- and must work constantly on
manifesting the fruit of the Spirit. We should reflect on our own lives
and behavior. Do we manifest the fruit of the Spirit or the works of
the flesh?

And those who belong tp Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its
passions and desires. If we IiVe by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Sptirt.

friendships end over loans

Hurting and healing


By Rev. Jim Messer
Are you hurting? Are
you in pain? Could you
use some healing?
The last Sunday of Au-
gust a "Healing and
Wholeness" service will
take place at Wellborn
United Methodist Church.
It is a service for all
people.
We are going to talk
about healing and how it
may help you.
We are going to explore
how we can be in touch
with the mighty healer, Je-


sus Christ.
Much healing occurred
during the ministry of Je-
sus.
A woman was complete-
ly healed after she had
touched the hen o. s f,Ns .i
garment. Jesus healed a
man who had sat next to a
healing pool for 30 years.
If Jesus could raise a
dead man from the grave
of death, he can surely
heal you and me.
The first step to healing
is the belief in Jesus
Christ. We must believe in


him with all our HEART,
MIND, AND SOUL.
We must be able to
place our hurts and pains
is his hands. We need to
get on our knees before
him and say, "I can not do
this alone, I need your
help, heal me."
Can our Lord take away
ALL our aches and pains?
Probably not. He can
lead us to doctors and sur-
geons who will help us
and you can be assured
that the Lord will be ahead
of us all the way.


Are you willing to start
the process of healing on
Sunday, Aug. 30, at 11
a.m. and let us take this
healing walk together?

Jim Messer is the pastor
of Wellborn United
Methodist Church. The

'a , .. , , , ... , ,. , . , ?,


money itself is amoral. It
can be a blessing or a
curse, depending on its
use. It is the nature of the
person using the money
that determines its morali-
ty.
The Bible speaks often
to the issue of money be-
cause it is a fact of life: we,
need money to live. I Tim-
othy 6:7-10 records some
basic truths:
"For we brought nothing
into the world, and we can
take nothing out of it. But
if we have food and cloth-
ing, we will be content
with that. People who
want to get rich fall into
temptation and a trap and
into many foolish and
harmful desires that plunge
men into ruin and destruc-
tion. For the love of mon-
ey is a root of all kinds of
evil."
I once heard a joke
about a greedy, miser of a
man who hoarded money
his entire life and was
bound and determined to
take it with him when he
died. He instructed his
wife to place his wealth in
the casket when he passed
away; he wanted no one
else, including her, to en-
joy his money after he was
gone. After his funeral,
friends and family were
curious to know whether
she carried out his wishes;
"Of course", she replied,
"but, instead of handling
all that cash, it was much
more convenient to write
him a check!" No way
around it, you can't take it
with you!
The word content is de-
fined as "quietness of
mind; satisfaction". When
we are struggling with fi-
nancial issues, isn't "quiet-
ness of mind" the first '
thing to go, even more so
if our struggle includes
other people? But notice
the last part of this scrip-
ture, it tells us thatthe root:;
of the problem is not mon-
ey, but the love of money
is where all kinds of prob-
lems begin. Constantly
overextended on your bud-


get? Continually arguing
with your spouse over |
money? A workaholic wiih
no time for your family?
These are just a few of tie
"temptations and traps that
plunge men into ruin."
One of the biggest traps
here is to think that more
money will solve these
problems. In Luke 16:10
the Bible says, "Whoevei
can be trusted with very
little can also be trusted
with much." If the way e
are 'handling the money we
have been trusted with is
damaging the relationship s
in our lives, there is a good
chance that more of it
won't help.
In his book "Money -
swers", financial planner-
and best selling author
Dave Ramsey agrees with
God's Word that content-
ment is the most important
financial concept. He
writes:
"Happiness is sold to oIs
as an event or thing, and1
consequently our finance
have suffered. Fun can b
bought with nioney, but
happiness cannot."
In other words, content-
ment is not found in gatli
ering more stuff, but in o r
relationship with God anl
others. Changing our focus
on how we pursue happii
ness will ultimately change
our financial situation ani
our life for the better. After
all, in the end it will not
our checkbook, but our
hearts that matters

RELIGION


By Rev. James L Snyder

I cannot tell you how many times the
Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has ex-
plained the difference between things to re-
member and things to be forgotten. Without
boasting, I believe I could give the lecture
back to her word for word.
I know some things are better put into
that great black abyss called forgetfulness,
to be remembered no more, not even when
they would help win an argument. Accord-
ing to my wife, forgetting some things is
more important than winning an argument. I
would not know. I never win an argument.
Also, certain things, which if forgotten,
will bring great stress, particularly to Yours
Truly.
Basically, I could not agree with her point
of view more. I know she is right. I know
some things should be forgotten while other
things should be remembered. After all, it
only makes sense. Nobody should forget
everything and certainly, nobody could re-
member everything. It would be impossible.
Anybody in his or her right mind should
know this. This gives me an out. I cannot
remember when I have ever been in my
right mind.
Here is my problem. I know some things
are to be remembered and other things are
to be forgotten but for the life of me, I do
not know which ones are which. What do I


forget and what do I remember?
For example, my wife wants me to re-
member her birthday but forget how old she
is. 1 cannot tell you how many times I have
reversed this situation. I am prone to forget
her birthday but remember how old she is.
In fact, there are those rare moments when I
have added a few years to her age. If you do
not think this has gotten me into trouble,
you have not done any serious thinking in a
long time.
. I know the birthdays come every year but
in spite of their predictable regularity, I
seem somehow to forget.
I learned an important lesson in life. It is
one thing to forget a birthday but it is quite
another animal to forget your wedding an-
niversary. But here is the rub. Unlike birth-
days, not only am I to remember the date
but the number of the anniversary, as well.
Even though my wife and I share the
same wedding anniversary, I forget to re-
member the date.
I have used a variety of excuses to cover
up for this mental delinquency on my part.
The first year I forgot our wedding an-
niversary I came up with a classy excuse,
"My dear, you do not look a year older and
so I forgot. How am I toxemember time
goes by when with you, time stands still?"
This worked the first year, but it has not
worked since. And believe me, I have tried.
Another excuse I tried that did not work


out very well was, "Honey, I deliberately
forgot our anniversary because I did not
want to remind you how old we really are."
I thought if I included myself in the age
category I could getaway with it. Let me
just say, it did not work.
One year, I bought my wife her anniver-
sary present in June. However, I had forgot-
ten all about it and happened to run across it
one Saturday in October. Since our anniver-
sary is in August this did not help me at all.
This year is our 38th wedding anniver-
sary. It is a little confusing to me because, if
it is the 38th anniversary my wife was sev-
en when we got married. It is amazing to
me how her birthday does not keep up with
our anniversary. I think I have it figured out.
For every three anniversaries, she gains,
only one year on her birthday. How else can
I explain it?
I still have a problem. Now that I 'i'V re-
membered our anniversary this year, what'
do I buy her for a present? After 37 years, I
have simply run out of ideas. Actually, I ran
out of ideas after the 10th anniversary. What
do you get someone for his or her 38th an-
niversary present?
To remember our anniversary and to for-
get to buy a present is the greatest faux pas
any husband can make.
I wanted to get a cake with candles but
the fire department considers it a fire haz-
ard. And of course, everybody knows that

usually forget

kind of candlepower really adds to the glob-
al warming effect.
It is times like this I wish I had written
down all of the anniversary gifts I have giv-
en over the last 37 years. Perhaps I could
see a pattern developing and just follow
through with the pattern.
My concern is if I buy her something ex-
pensive, she might become suspicious and
wonder what I did that I do not want her to
know about. If I buy something rather
cheap, she may suspect that I do not take
the anniversary seriously.
I have finally come up with an answer.
Since my wife is into crafts, I decided to
make her anniversary gift myself this year. I
must confess, I am not as crafty as she is -
on a multitude of levels, but then as she al-
ways says, "It's the thought that counts."
Then I turned to the Bible and read,
"Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing,
and obtaineth favour of the LORD."
(Proverbs 18:22 KJV).
Every great marriage is based upon for-
getting and remembering the right things.

FWC asks anglers to


help gather reef fish data


Biologists with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
Fish and Wildlife Research
Institute (FWRI) request
angler assistance with a
research project focusing on
red snapper and other reef fish
on Florida's Gulf Coaist. This
project will provide fisheries
researchers and managers
with much of the catch-and-
release survival information
they need for assessing reef
fish stocks.
Reef fish include a variety
of snapper and grouper
species commonly targeted by
recreational anglers. Anglers
can contribute to reef fish
research by participating in
angler surveys.They'als:ocaii
help by reporting tagged fish
to the Angler Tag Return
Hotline at 800-367-4461.
As part of the research,
FWRI biologists will
approach anglers at public
areas such as boat ramps, -
fishing piers and marinas to
request participation. These
biologists will distribute
survey cards designed to
collect detailed information
on fishing trips in the Gulf of
Mexico. This information
includes where red snapper
are caught and released, the
type of equipment used and
the condition of the fish when
released.
Anglers can also e-mail
their name and address to
FishStats@MyFWC.com to
obtain a postage-paid survey
card in the mail.
Downloadable data sheets are
also available on the FWRI
Web site at


http://research.MyFWC.com/f
eatures/view_article.asp?id=3
2671.
Additionally, each month
FWRI will mail surveys to a
'random sample of licensed
saltwater anglers. These
surveys focus on the habits of
anglers who target reef fish.
Survey questions include
when and how often anglers
fish, as well as the type and
number of fish they harvest or
'release.
Biologists request that
anglers respond to the survey,
even if they are not fishing for
'reef fish.
FWRI biologists are
tagging and releasing reef fish
back into the wild to evaluate
the survival of released fish.
For this project, biologists are
placing an orange tag.near the
dorsal fin of the fish. Each
tag has a unique number
printed on the side. When
anglers catch a fish with one
of these tags, they should call
the Angler Tag Return
Hotline. Biologists would like
to know the species of fish, -
tag number, date and time of
capture, where the fish was
caught, fish length, type of
bait used and whether the fish
was kept or released. If the
fish is released, anglers
should leave the tag in the fish
sociologists can continue to
collect data. Receiving this
information is important for
the success of this project.
Anglers will receive a
token of appreciation for
participating in this study. For
more information on reef fish
research, visit

Casual chat leads to canine connection therapy at UF


By Sarah Carev
The grapevine is alive
and well, as the Tampa-
area owners of two young
chocolate Labrador
retrievers can attest. The
dogs both are doing well
after recently receiving
unique interventional
therapy at UF's Veterinary
Medical Center to correct
a life-threatening liver
condition..
Robin Fish and Shiloh
Schrantz met at a mutual
friend's birthday party in
July and began chatting.
Turns out, both women
owned puppies who both
happened to be extremely
ill from the same medical
condition.
"We were at'ajazz and
blues club where there was
live iusic and it was hard
to hear because of all the
noise," Schrantz said. "All
of a sudden my husband
said, 'Listen,to these
people; their puppy has
issues like ours.'"
"So I went over and
said, 'I don't mean to be
snooping, but it sounds
like your dog might have
exactly the same problem


that ours has,'" Schrantz
said.
At this point, Schrantz's
dog, Bear, had survived
risky surgery in January
but his veterinarians failed
to locate the.shunt that
improperly diverted
circulation. Schrantz said
her vet pushed the couple
to obtain additional tests
but they were reluctant to
pursue other. options,
partly out of worry that
any new procedure would
be hard on Bear.
"It was being managed
through medication and
prescription dog food, but
we did stall," Schrantz
said. "He wasn't thriving."
Fish, on the other hand,
shared with her new friend
that Delilah was awaiting
a procedure at UF known
as interventional therapy.
"Their dog was dying
and here I was, with my
dog about to get this
procedure," Fish said. "It
was a very atypical thing."
The Fishes knew almost
immediately after Delilah
was born that she was very
sick.
"I saw she was not

playing as much as the
other pups," Fish said.
"She was picky with her
food and very listless.
Then she began having
severe fevers." -
UF veterinarians
verified through additional
tests that Delilah had an
intrahepatic portosystemic
liver shunt in a hard-to-
find spot within the central


lobe of the organ, but
could not receive surgery
until her condition
improved.
"They said, 'we have to
get her in a surgical state,'"
Fish recalled. "So they put
her on medication and on a
no-protein diet, and we
had to wait a month."
It was in that.window of
waiting for surgery that


Fish and Schrantz ha
