 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.

Focus on studies, not flu,

school officials advise


Local authorities are prepared should there be
an outbreak of H1N1 virus in Suwannee


By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com
As students prepare to return to
school in Suwannee County, there
may be one more reason for back-
to-school jitters: swine flu.
With dozens of cases of the novel
H1N1 virus around the nation, and
three confirmed in Suwannee Coun-
ty, some students (or their parents,


at least) may be wary of crowded
classrooms and congested hallways,
However, local health officials
want to put their minds at ease.
Steps have been taken to prevent the
flu, and to minimize its spread
should a case occur.
"We don't know or can't say with
any certainty that we are going to
have any cases," said Margaret
Wooley, comprehensive health di-


rector for Suwannee
County schools. "But
if a student" does
show up with symp-
toms, we'll do what
we can to isolate
those students until Charlie
parents can be con- Crist
tacted."
Some general tips for avoiding
the flu have been circulated by the
federal Centers for Disease Control

A sense of




community


By Wendell Snowden
Summer's almost behind us and fall's on the way.
After a very successful Blueberry Festival and two
months off for recuperation, the WCA is back in business.
Our new year will start at our meeting on Sept. 10 at 7
p.m. We will be discussing the October 3rd yard sale to
be held at Andrews Square at 7 a.m., in conjunction with
the Blueberry Pancake Breakfast. We will also be talking
about our Wellborn Children's Halloween Party on Oct. 3
and our Thanksgiving Community Dinner. So, you see
how time flies? I left out Christmas Party discussions on
purpose so as not to alarm too many readers, but
December will be here before you know it.
Another thing we will discuss this coming season is
"community." We need more Wellborn and Suwannee
County residents to get involved in our community. I'm
talking about going out of your way to be DIRECTLY
involved. If you're reading this column, you receive the
Suwannee Democrat and read "Rant and Rave." People
who are interested in certain issues bring these issues up
in this column.. There are complaints about us being a dry
county, about the county commissioners and how they
vote, trash on the streets, etc. It's OK to phone in your


Don't try to make Suwannee County over! We
are a rural, peaceful county. Newcomers should
not tell us how they did it where they moved
from, or that they had more traffic lights, or that
every street corner had a four-way stop sign and
every road was paved.


opinion to the newspaper, but we need to get more
involved. I would like to say here that Editor Robert
Bridges and Publisher Myra Regan run a well-organized,
unbiased newspaper while managing to get directly
involved.
I hear District Four Commissioner Billy Maxwell
encouraging people all the time to attend commission
meetings. When five commissioners look out at an
audience of only five to ten county citizens, what must
they think! They must think that we don't care how they
vote or on what issues. It's called support. Support your
county commissioners by attending meetings.
You can get involved on an easier, simpler task - trash
on the streets! Since the Suwannee Correctional
Institution has opened, we have less trash. I have
personally witnessed road crews out picking up trash.
Our streets and roadways are cleaner. But we can do
better. Help the road crews by covering your loads. If
you drop something, go back and pick it up. Clean up"
your street in front of your own property. Fifteen minutes
a week in front of where you live is all it would take.
Thanks go out to Warden Jim Witt for his help in keeping
our hometown clean.
Most people do not attend political rallies or debate
sessions when they come up prior to election time. This is
your very best opportunity to get your ideas and feelings


known to incumbent officials and those running for the
office. You get to hear their ideas and get to know why
they are running for an office. Let them know what you
expect from an elected official. Will they vote for what
their constituents want,, or for their personal agenda?
Suwannee County has a lot of newcomers. I even
consider myself a newcomer. Except for those born and
raised here, we came here for a reason. Whatever that
was, you moved away from something you didn't like or
couldn't afford. Or, you were just tired of the hustle and
bustle. Don't try to make Suwannee County over! We
are a rural, peaceful county. Newcomers should.not tell
us how they did it where they moved from, or that they
had more traffic lights, or that every street corner had a
four-way stop sign and every road was paved. Believe
me, folks, paving in front of your house is good, but it
brings more traffic, different problems and higher taxes.
If you live on a dirt road, it was dirt before you moved
there. Newcomers and born-and- raised folks need to
work together to keep Suwannee County a great place to
live and raise our families.
I hope I.haven't rambled for too long or offended
anyone - that was not the intent. The intent is to say that
regardless of race, creed, color or political affiliation, we
should unite as one and work together to resolve any
issues and problems that Suwannee County may have.

Myrtle and Vernon Clifton


On August 28, 1949, with a hurricane coming, Myrtle
Robinson and Vernon Clifton joined their lives together
in marriage. During their sixty years together, Vernon be-
came an ordained minister and pastored several churches
for more than forty years.
Myrtle taught mathematics for many years in Suwan-
nee and Nassau counties. They had three children, Bever-
ly, Mark and Gary. Richard Brimer and Julie Simrell
were later added to the family by marriage to Beverly
and Gary, respectively. They also have four grandchil-
dren, Jonathan, Jeremy, and Bethany Brimer and
Matthew Clifton.
Their children and grandchildren invite you to join
them in celebrating the 60th anniversary of their mar-
riage. This celebration will take place on Saturday, Au-
gust 29, 2009 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Fellowship Hall of
First Baptist Church in Live Oak, Florida.
No local invitations will be sent, but we hope you will
join us. Myrtle and Vernon want you to know that your
presence is the only present they need.

Kyle Starling
Your 1st birthday
Covered in cake and icing,
Your smile stretched ear to ear.
A single candle celebrates,
The joys of your first year.
We sing Happy Birthday,
You play midst wrap and bows.
We marvel how you touched our lives,
Just one year ago.
I remember the first time I held you,
Kissed your head, whispered your name.
You've changed our lives forever,
Our hearts will never be the same.
As a child you'll love this day,
For all the sweets and presents too.
As parents we'll love your day,
For the gift we got was you.
Each year we'll add another candle,
So proud to see you grow.
But always with the memory,
Of your first day long ago.

Emergency supply kit


The Safety Line
From Suwannee County
Fire/Rescue

By Paul M. Haas
Suwannee County Fire Marshal
Hurricanes, tornados, floods and emergency
evacuations are never marked on the calendar prior to
their occurrence. Often the need to move people from the
path of harm's way comes at the spur of the moment and
without any advanced warning. Being prepared for the
always present "what if' should be the priority for
everyone. Suwannee County Fire/Rescue and the
National Fire Protection AsSciation offer the following
suggestions for getting an emergency supply kit ready for
the "what if."
Disasters can happen anywhere and at any time. By
taking the time to create an emergency supply kit, your
family will be prepared in the event of a disaster. The kit
also helps children feel more secure knowing it is there in
case of an emergency.
The supplies can be kept in a plastic tub, small suitcase,
trash can, backpack or other container. To learn what else
you need in an emergency supply kit, go to
www.ready.gov.

Water - one gallon per person per day for drinking and
sanitation - store 3-day supply.
Ready-to-eat food, canned juices, comfort/stress foods -
at least a 3-day supply.
Battery-powered or hand-cranked radio and a NOAA
weather radio, and extra batteries for both.
Flashlights and extra batteries.
First aid kit.
Non-prescription drugs such as pain reliever, anti-
diarrhea medication, antacid, laxative.
Prescription medications, contact lenses and supplies,
denture needs.
Whistle to signal for help.
Infant formula and diapers, if you have an infant..
Water and pet food if you have pets.
Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for
personal sanitation.
Dust mask or cotton T-shirt to filter the air.
Plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place.
Wrdnch or pliers to turn off utilities.

Psoriasis is Managed with Multiple Drugs
Psoriasis is a common chronic skin condition caused by a
malfunction of the body's immune system. Overactive T cells (a
type of white blood cell) lead to rapid turnover of skin cells. The
build-up of skin cells results in thick silvery scales overlying red
skin patches that may be itchy and painful. Dry skin, thickened
nails, and stiff joints are other signs and symptoms typical of
psoriasis. The condition may range from only a small affected area
of skin to a large area of scaling, with alternating periods of
remissions and flares. Injuries, stress, and certain medications may
trigger flare-ups.
Although there is no cure for psoriasis, medications are available to
alleviate signs and symptoms and reduce flares. Topical
corticosteroids, such as clobetasol (Olux, Temovate), slowdown cell
turnover by suppressing the immune system, reducing inflammation.
Calcipotriene (Dovonex) is a vitamin D analogue prescribed as a
cream, ointment, or solution. Calcitriol (Calcijex, Vectical) is
another vitamin D analogue for psoriasis. Methotrexate
(Rheumatrex, Trexall), azathioprine (Imuran), and cyclosporine
(Sandimmune) are oral medications that may be prescribed in severe
psoriasis. Immunomodulator medications, such as etanercept
(Enbrel) and infliximab (Remicade) are administered by injection.

BIBLE VERSE
"Your attitude should be the same as that
of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature
God, did not consider equality with God
something to be grasped, but made himself
nothing, taking the very nature of a
servant, being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself and became obedient
to death- even death on a cross!"

School days


- way back


when

By Jim Holmes
Well, it's time for school again here in Live
Oak.
I was reminded of that fact when I visited some
y youngsters for whom I serve as Guardian ad
Litem and they wouldn't let me leave until they
had showed me their new clothes, shoes and of
.course those now ever-present backpacks all the
youngsters wear.
It will be 60 years ago this fall that I first
walked into a classroom. To say that things have
changed would be an understatement.
;,-*.Wow! What we would have given for air-condi-
'tibed classrooms in 1949. Back then, cool air on,
'a hot day was a magical phenomena found only at
the local movie house ... or until your mother told
you to shut the refrigerator door.
I sure remember coal furnaces, however. If your
house or school used one, the temperature was
never quite right. You were either roasting or
shivering. And boy, do I remember the air being
heated with blue language on those cold mornings
when my father arose to find the furnace out.
Those were the mornings Mama would crank up
the oven, open the door and have me dress in
front of it.
School desks were a lot different then as well.
They are so bright and light today. Ours were
made of back wrought iron and dark brown oak,
complete with an ink well in the upper right hand
corer. And yes, we used that ink well everyday
** when we were learning to write, complete with a
primitive pen that you actually dipped in the well
with every few strokes. (I bet there was a collec-
tive "hallelujah" from America's classrooms when
teachers were finally permitted to teach kids to
write with ballpoint pens.)
And back in the late 40s and early 50s, I think
every kid was still required to learn to write with
, his or her RIGHT hand. I'll always remember how
Smy buddy Daryl Calvin, a lefty, struggled. In fact,
he never did master cursive writing. By the time
we reached high school, they'd given up on hav-
ing him write anything cursive WITH EITHER
HAND! He was the only kid in school actually
, required to print all his homework, as well as any-
thing he turned out in the classroom. Because his
, printing slowed him down, he was even given
. five minutes extra to complete tests.
I wonder, when they teach kids to write today
.:,, do they allow them to use regular pencils? They
Save each of us a thick green pencil ... with no
, eraser! In my little hands with their stubby fin-
, gers I felt like I was trying to maneuver a small
S,. log over the page. And without an eraser, there
were no second chances. Then they wondered
why my letters had little semblance to those post-
ed above the blackboard. (Yep, we had black-
boards back then!)
I tell you one thing that hasn't changed, howev-
er. It's that glee that youngsters have heading back
to school that first day every fall. Well, summer
now.
But don't worry. Something else hasn't changed
., either. By the second week, every kid will al-
;: ready be dreaming about next year's summer va-
,r cation.

phone number. We ask this so we can verify your letter

LETTER TO THE EDITOR


To the Editor:

In 1989, my mother was admit-
ted to a hospital on a Thursday at
11 p.m. to have quintuple bypass
surgery the next morning. Before
she could go to surgery, she had a
brain aneurysm, went into a coma
and was placed on a ventilator.
Once the doctor did a brain scan
and determined she had no brain
function, we took her off the venti-
lator about 8 p.m. Friday night; she
died at the age of 68. Because my
mother had talked to all three of
her children about her last wishes,
of not being left on a ventilator, we
were, in agreement to disconnect
the ventilator. She had also told her
doctor and had a living will. It
made it so much easier to comply
with her wishes and not have to
fight the doctor or go to court to'


have the ventilator removed.
SEven if a portion of the, health
bill now in Congress does not in-
clude a section about paying a doc-
tor to conference with anyone over
55, I strongly urge anyone of any
age to confer with his/her doctor, to*
tell your family what you would
want if you are ever unable to
speak for yourself, and to have it in
-writing. One horrible traffic acci-
dent can ruin a family because of
in fighting about what to do with
the person in a coma.
Although it is not a consideration
for taking a certain action, my
mother's less than 24-hour stay in
the hospital cost about $15,000
(probably $40,000 in today's dollar
value). Luckily, my mom had in-
surance and, even if she didn't, my
family is fortunate enough that we
could have paid for it. There are a


lot of families who have no insur-
Sance and no means to pay even a
bill half that size. Some families
have gone bankrupt, trying to pay
medical bills.
The important thing is to know
what someone wants if a tragedy
happens. Most hospitals provide a
Five Wishes booklet. You can go
on line to get them, or you can
search for Florida Advanced Direc-
tives, which include a living will
and a health care surrogate form.
You can also go to www.partner-
shipforcaring.org.
Please consider taking a proac-
tive step now to help your family
make good decisions for what is
right for your family at a time of
crisis.

*By Mary Sowerby
UF/IFAS Dairy Extension

Add a buzzer system, two knowledgeable teams of
three or four 4-H members, and a moderator to ask ques-
tions like those above and you have a 4-H Dairy Quiz
Bowl.
Eighteen youth from Suwannee, Gilchrist and
Lafayette Counties plunged into the world of dairy nutri-
tion at a multi-county 4-H Dairy Day Camp held at
Hatch Park in Branford recently. They were preparing for
the Florida State 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl at the University
of Florida Animal Sciences Building in Gainesville.
At the Dairy Day Camp, the youth learned about the
six basic nutrients found in all foods for humans and
feed for cattle: vitamins, minerals, fats and oils, carbohy-
drates, proteins and water. Then they learned what these
important nutrients do in the body and everything from
basic chemistry (all carbohydrates are made of carbon,
hydrogen and oxygen), to how feeds are combined to-
gether to form total mixed rations (TMR's) for cows so
that every mouthful contains a full complement of essen-
tial nutrients, to all the anatomical parts of the ruminant
digestive tract.
Besides learning, the youth had lots of practice an-
swering questions with buzzers to simulate the state
Dairy Quiz Bowl. In addition, they had fun touring three
dairies: Kurtz and Sons Dairy, owned by the Bubba
Kurtz family near Live Oak; Shenandoah Dairy, owned
by the James Henderson family, also near Live Oak; and
DPS-Bell, owned by David Sumrall in Bell.
A tour of Suwannee Valley Feed Mill in Trenton and a
stop for lugch and a swim at Hart Springs Park added to
both the fun and learning. The Dairy Day Camp was do-
ordinated by Suwannee County 4-H Agent Brian Es- a
tevez, Gilchrist County 4-H Agent Chris DeCubellis and
UF Regional Dairy Extension Agent Mary Sowerby.
At the Florida State 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl, Suwannee
County youth did very well. In the junior division, the
winning team was lead by Garrett Greaves from
McAlpin. His teammates were Ryan Fredriksson from
Mayo and Dakota Harding from Trenton.
The second place junior team members were all from
Suwannee County: Destiny Fennell and Tiffanie White
from McAlpin; and Kara Croft and Westley Lane from
Live Oak.
In the intermediate division, the first place team was
comprised of Shelbi McCall and Emily Fredriksson, both
from Mayo, and Alex Pluskot from Okeechobee. Tucker
McDaniels, Chandler Ash-DeCubellis and Patrick Thisse,
all from Gilchrist County, comprised the second place
team. In third place was a team of Andrew and Caroline
Horvath from Live Oak, and Jon Locke from
Gainesville.
There were only two senior teams. In first place was
Austin Pluskot, Fallon Curren and Raychel Rabon, all
from Okeechobee County, and Jessica Hunt from Haidee
County. The second place team, from Gilchrist County,
consisted of Nathan Thisse, Krystina Thompson and
Donna Owens.
The older youth participating in the Florida 4-H Dairy
Quiz Bowl were also competing for the opportunity to
represent Florida at the National 4-H Invitational Dairy
Quiz Bowl in Louisville, Kentucky, in November and a
Dairy Quiz Bowl.held at the World Dairy Expo in Madi-
son, Wisconsin, in early October. Good luck to all the
youth representing Florida in'these two events.

put on a football clinic for BYEL players
at BHS stadium recently. Nearly 150 kids
were involved.
SThe day started off with John Perry read-
ing a few verses from Ecclesiastes in the


Florida Christian Athlete's bible.
"We're big on FCA here," said Stebbins.
"We used a verse from Ecclesiastes to in-
spire the kids to work as a team. That two
is better than one and stuff like that."
During the clinic, BYEL kids were ex-
posed to "real" football, said Stebbins.
They did team building exercises, offen-
sive and defensive drills, learned to tackle
and to hold and throw the football proper-
ly.

Pension fund overpayment Suwannee Democrat
A IA-, A.. ..I 1. % .;. . ., . . 0I


Continued From Page 1A

Live Oak Public Works
Director Tommy Cundiff
passed away on Oct. 31,
2006. He had begun draw-
ing retirement benefits in
March of 1999 and chose a
50 percent joint and sur-
vivor annuity option for
his wife, Sue Cundiff.
Tommy Cundiff was to re-
ceive $812.49 a month.
Upon his death, Sue Cun-
diff was to receive
$406.25 a month for the
rest of her life. However,
say city officials, the com-
pany administering the
pension fund was never in-
formed of Tommy Cun-
diffs death. Sue Cundiff
has continued to receive
$812.49 per month since
her husband's death.
.City Finance Director
Jan Parkhurst said City
Hall became aware of the
problem after the March
2009 death of former Live
Oak Fire Chief Howard
Wright. Parkhurst said she
was looking over paper-
work for Wright and no-


ticed discrepancies in
Cundiffs file, such as the
lack of a death certificate.
"I started asking ques-
tions about where this in-
formation was on Tom-
my," said Parkhurst. "I did
research and contacted
Smith Barney (the compa-
ny that administers the
pension fund and writes
the checks)."
Parkhurst said Smith
Barney was unaware of
Cundiffs death and never
received a death certifi-
cate.
Parkhurst said it is un-
likely Sue Cundiff knew
the amount she was sup-
posed to receive.
"At this point I have no.
reason to believe she
knew," said Parkhurst.
"All indications are that
she had no idea. I have no
evidence to indicate other-
wise,"
She said if Cundiff
doesn't pay the trust fund
back, the city will have to
incur the expense.
Parkhurst said the Board
of Trustees for the Fire-


fighters' Substitute Pen-
sion Trust Fund (of which
she is a member).and the
city have implemented
rules to make sure some-
thing like this doesn't hap-
pen again, She said once a
year, pensioners will have
to sign a statement con-
firming the plan they
chose and acknowledging
how much their beneficia-
ries are to receive. Benefi-
ciaries will also have to
sign a% statement confirm-
ing the amount they were
to receive.
"I think the firefighter's
board has taken action to
correct this in the future,"
said Parkhurst.
According to a letter to
the city from Fdster &
Foster, an actuarial consul-
tant, Sue Cundiff received
$13,405.92 in overpay-
ments from the trust fund.
The lump sum value of the
plan is $52,674.84. The
city wants to offer her
$38,768.92 as a buy out,
minus $500 for actuarial
fees.
If Cundiff refuses, the


city wants her to repay the
$13,405.92 to the trust
fund.
Council president Mark
Stewart, also a member of
the pension fund Board of
Trustees, said the money
has to be returned some-
how.
"We have to try to col-
lect the money that's owed
the trust fund," said Stew-
art. "From my standpoint,
I have to look out for the
overall solvency of the to-
tal trust fund."
Council member John
Hale said he doesn't see
why Cundiff should have
to repay the money. "She
didn't make. the mistake. I
don't think she's the one
responsible," said Hale.
"It's bad enough they're
having to cut the widow's
salary in half, but to expect
her to repay $13,000 is just
not reasonable."
Said Cundiff, "I'm very
upset. 1 3on't have a com-
ment right now because
the city hasn't notified me
of what their intentions
are."

William Robert Elliort was back in

Jones.
The verdict, a 2nd degree
felony, carries a maximum
penalty of 15 years in
prison.
The jury took just over
three hours to reach a deci-
sion.
"I'm happy for her," said
Jelks' stepmother Lettie
Jelks, following the read-
ing of the verdict.
"It's not perfect, but
we're very, very happy,"
Defense Attorney Dan
Clark said. "We would
have liked to get an acquit-
tal. The jury was very at-
tentive and gave very care-
ful consideration to the
facts. I can understand their


verdict. We're pleased Lace
did not get the mandatory
life in prison as a result of
this tragedy."
Sandra Neal, the mother
of Elizabeth Jones, said,
"I'm satisfied. I just wanted
this to be done for my
daughter being killed like
that."
Prosecutor Craig Jacob-
sen stated: "The state is
disappointed in the verdict,
but the jury has spoken and
arrived at a verdict that
they deem appropriate.
Sentencing is scheduled
for Sept. 10 at 11 a.m. Fol-
lowing the trial Jelks was
transported back to the
Madison County Jail,
where she will remain until
sentencing.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: Why is it important that my teeth line
up properly?
A: In addition to having the benefit of a
beautiful smile, the main reason for
having your teeth in perfect alignment is
to have them function properly as the
machinery for nutrition. When you bring
your jaws together, your teeth meet in a
union that's referred to as your bite.
When the bite is right, the front teeth
will slightly overlap the lowers. The
grinding points, or cusps, will line up so
that you can chew food efficiently,
swallow it and process it correctly. When
they don't meet properly, the condition
is called malocclusion,
If you have malocclusion, whether it is a
cosmetic or functional problem, you
have options for treatment. The most
common treatment recommendation
from your dentist maybe orthodontia, or
braces which can gradually - and
painlessly - move your teeth into their
proper positions. In assessing your bite
and any course faction, your dentist
mnay need to take a plaster mold of:your
teeth. It's a painless procedure that
involves your biting into a tray full of soft
paste to make a cast of your teeth. Ask
your dentist about the ways he can
make your bite perfect.

MEET YOUR NEIGHBOR



From Cinderella's Castle to Live Oak City Hall


"I don't need anything fancy," says city employee Patty Smith


Patty Smith at her desk at Live Uak City Hall. - Photo: Stephenie Livingston


SBy Jeff Waters
Sjeff.waters@gaflnews.com

After leaving New Jersey, then rubbing
shoulders with Cinderella at Disney World,
Patty Smith decided to make Live Oak her
home.
Smith works for the city of Live Oak in the finance
department. She has been helping customers with their
city utility accounts for about two years.
Smith knows most her customers by name and she
proved that while sitting on a picnic table in a small
garden outside city hall.
"Well hello, how are you," Smith inquires of customers
as they drive by. All knew Patty by name as well.
"Ilove the people," Smith said as she sat at a table
talking about the town she loves.
"When my customers pull up and say 'You're always
smiling aqd happy,' that makes me feel good," Smith said


with a smile and wave to another passing customer.
Smith and her family have called Live Oak home for
about five years, but she feels like she always belonged
here. After leaving New Jersey, Smith moved with her
parents to Kissimmee where she met John, her husband
of more than 23 years. She landed a job in the finance
department at Disney World.
Smith said her station was across the hall from the
Disney characters' dressing rooms.
"Cinderella would come flying out and you would be
like, wow," Smith said with a twinkle in her eye.
Smith said the one thing she misses about working for
Disney is being able to walk down Main Street after the
park closes.
"Being able to walk down Main Street with nobody
else there but you. It was magical," she said. "You can
see all the lights on and see what goes on backstage. That
was the fun part."
After about 20 years of crowds and traffic jams, Smith


and her family decided a change was in order. John
Smith's parents live in Live Oak so the family decided to
try a change of pace. They fell in love with the area at
once.
Patty Smith said the school system here is like night
and day compared to Kissimmee. Suwannee County
schools are better, in her opinion.
"The school systems are really good here compared to
down there," she said.
The couple has two kids, James, 19, and daughter
Kristina, 15. James is in the Army's 3rd Brigade, 4th
Division currently stationed at Fort Carson in Colorado.
Before that he was stationed in Iraq, first in Kirkuk, then
in Mosul.
James will be home later this month for two weeks.
The family has planned a cruise to Mexico to celebrate.
"I want to get Kristina through high school and get
James back home. That's my two biggest goals right
now," Smith said. "I don't need anything fancy."

Teacher ready to quit his job because of a

love triangle involving a 16-year-old student
Let me share with you a story of a love triangle. It was about 7:30 am, not long before
the first bell to start home room. Mr. Smith was sitting at his desk, finishing the last details
of the lesson to start his first day of teaching high school. He checked his notes and
straightened his desk, not realizing the door to his class was open. Finally, looking up
from his nervous work, he saw his first student coming in the open door.
Her name was Carmen. She was a tall brunette with a nice figure. She gave him a big
:smile, but somewhat covered her innocent, young mouth with her hand in a cute kind of
Way. He anxiously greeted her with a weak "Good morning, welcome to my'class." He ;- k
.pressed through his fear and proceeded to talk with her, discovering that they had a lot in' .
commonn. Mr. Smith also noticed that she continued to cover her mouth when she talked. '- '
Minutes later, other students started to flow in. When the class was about full, just before
:the late bell, Jacob entered the classroom with his crew. At this point, Mr. Smith noticed
:Carmen shrink down in her seat with a tortured look on her face. As soon as Jacob saw
:Carmen, he let it fly, "Look! There's snaggle-toothed Carmen!" Mr. Smith, being nervous
:on his first day of teaching, held back his anger and just told the boys to take their seats.
SAfter about a week of hearing the students (led by Jacob) calling her snaggle-toothed, ; -
:Mr. Smith decided to do something proactive about it. When he got home that evening, he ,
explained everything to his wife. They both agreed that they needed to get the other
teachers involved and do the right thing.
Led by Mr. Smith, the teachers secretly started collecting funds to help Carmen replace
:her missing and broken teeth. With the help of a local dentist and the caring teachers, the "
:day finally came to give Carmen the good news. When Mr. Smith approached her with the surprise, she started to cry, rejected his
:help and ran off. In fact, a full week passed and Carmen'had not been back to school. Mr. Smith felt like a failure, not only as a
:teacher, but also as a man. He began to question his reasons for becoming a teacher in the first place, and wanted to quit or at least
:transfer and start over.
Mr. Smith decided to give it one more shot and went to see if Carmen would be at home. To his delight, she was! He started to
apologize, but she stopped him. "It's not your fault, Mr. Smith. I was too embarrassed to return to school. I've put up with this for
years and it hurt to think the teachers were involved. What hurts the most is that no one even cares how it happened!"
"How did it happen, Carmen?" asked Mr. Smith.
"Let's just say my stepdad's been in jail for years and is not getting out any time soon!"
Mr. Smith quickly apologized, and finally convinced Carmen that all the teachers loved her and just wanted to help. She agreed to
see the dentist and, after a couple of weeks, returned to school with a brand-new smile.
SWhat a change a smile can make! Carmen was a new person. Gone were the days of covering her smile when she talked. She
joined the cheerleading team, started to improve in all her classes and became one of the most popular girls in school.
I wish this story had a happy ending for all, but for poor Jacob, it doesn't. Mr. Smith confiscated a note Jacob passed to his friend
ein class. To Jacob's embarrassment, Mr. Smith read the note aloud, as was his class policy. Jacob, not surprisingly, needed advice on
)how to talk to the girl he loved, who wouldn't give him the time of day. You guessed it--Carmen!
I hope you enjoyed this story. Unfortunately, Carmen's story is all too familiar for thousands of people with missing or broken
:;teeth. The embarrassment and shame is very deep. It affects a person's personality, job and even love or social life. You can't feel
attractive until you see yourself as attractive.
I'm here to help you improve your smile by replacing those missing and broken
,teeth. I won'tlecture or embarrass you about your smile. If you could identify with
;Carmen in that story, then come and see me at Smile Designs By Dr. Charlotte Gerry.
I can help you obtain an unbelievable smile at a believable price.

Collins makes it 2 wi


in one night at Volusi


Speedway Park

SIn spite of the late start at Volusia Speedway Park
Saturday night, once the action got going, the fans were
not disappointed. With 29 Late Models in the pits for a
regular Saturday night event, excitement filled the air.
Quite a few fans brought in school supplies and
backpacks for the area school kids for Volusia's Back.
to School Night. It was also News Journal Night as
they filled the VIP suite over the concession stand.
Kids were invited to try their luck at the Wheel of For-
tune for a few school supplies and one of the backpacks
and had a great time. But it was then time to get serious
as the track was finally ready for the cars.
After a few quick heat laps, the rainout feature for
the Late Models was ready to go. I will just get down
to it and let you know that one driver won both the
rainout feature and feature and it was none other than
Johnny Collins. Very few drivers have done this, win
two features in one night, but Johnny Collins proved
that it could be done.
Lawton Minchew had the pole for the make-up race
with Jack Nosbisch Jr. on the outside pole. Minchew
quickly took the lead on the green over Rich Pratt,
Johnny Collins, David Clegg and Donnie Chappell.
Collins waste no time as he takes over second with
Clegg third and Pratt fourth. Minchew goes sideways in
turn four but is able to continue as Collins takes over
the number one spot putting Minchew second, Clegg
third, Chappell fourth and Pratt fifth.
The first caution comes out on lap three for Shan
Smith.who has spun. The!field quickly gets back to
green with Collins on the inside and Minchew on the
outside for the start. Collins quickly takes the point
over Minchew, Clegg, Chappell and Pratt. Lap seven
sees the second caution for John Rankin who is trying
to get his machine into the pits. As Rankin slows, Cory
Hupp gets involved trying to evade Rankin. Both are
done for the night as they go to their pits.
With Collins on the inside and Clegg on the outside
for the restart, Collins quickly once again takes the
point over Clegg, Chappell, Minchew and Stanton
Mills. But racers beware, Jason Fitzgerald is coming up
fast as he has now made it to mid-field from his rear
starting position.
Caution three comes out on lap 11 as Bobby Richard-
son has problems on the backstretch. The field gets
back to green as Collins once again takes the inside,
Clegg outside for the restart. But there are problems on
the start as Clegg climbs up on Collin's car down the
frontstretch and ends up in the turn one wall. Clegg re-
tires as Collins takes the inside and Chappell takes the
outside for the restart. Collins quickly takes the point
over Chappell, Minchew, Fitzgerald and Nosbisch.
Minchew passes Chappell for second as Nosbisch takes
over fourth and Fitzgerald goes to fifth.
The fourth caution comes out on lap 16 for Ken
Monahar who limps his car off the track and Andy
Schell has problems. Both cars go into the pits as it is
now halfway and a single file restart. Collins leads the
way over Minchew, Chappell, Nosbisch and Fitzgerald.
Jason Kimball is smoking bad and takes his smoke ma-
chine into th pits as Collins continues to lead the way.
Lap 18 sees Fitzgerald challenge Nosbisch for fourth
but Nosbisch shuts the door. Collins continues to lead
the way and takes his first win of the night over Law-
ton Minchew, Jack Nosbisch Jr., Jason Fitzgerald and
Donnie Chappell.
SHeat races were up next as Jason Davis and Jamie
Carter topped the heats for the Modifieds. Street Stocks

saw Steve Mooers and Grady Christian on top.
Thunder Stocks did not run a heat but just a feature
race. Matthew Schell had the pole as Robert Schrunk
was on the outside pole. Schell quickly took the point
on the green over Michael Rood, Skip Land, Donnie
Nobles and Schrunk. Eddie Tovet quickly passed
Schrunk and took over fifth as Schell is a half track
ahead of the rest of the field.
Lap four sees Land goes sideways but does a great
job of saving the car and keeping it going. Schell con-
tinues to lead the way over Nobles, Rood, Scott Moo-
ers and Land. Lap five sees Rood smoking badly but
does not want to stop. Land gets squirrelly again as
Richard Calmes passes Land for fifth but once again,
Land holds on and keeps the car going.
Robert Pence brings out the caution on lap nine as he
spins at the bottom of lap two.-It is a single file restart
as Schell continues to lead the way over Nobles, Rood,
Mooers and Calmes. Mooers passes the smoking Rood
and takes over third as Rood goes to fourth Mooers
challenges Nobles for second but Nobles quickly shuts
that door.
Rood is smoking badly now but is going to drive it
until it dies but is black flagged off the track. Schell
takes the checkered over D.J. Nobles, Scott Mooers,
Richard Calmes and Skip Land.
It was now time for the heat races for the Late Model
feature race of the night. Winning heat one was Darrell
Padgett. Donnie Chappell topped heat two with Jack
Nosbisch Jr. winner in heat three.
The 4 Cyl Challengers also ran only a feature race
and no heats. RJ Glaser had the pole with last week's
winner Dalton Strehle on the outside pole. Strehle, who
was in the hospital part of the week, was well enough
that he wanted to win again. But before a lap was.
down, the caution came out for Danny Lunn who was
driving blind because his hood flew up and he could
not see. Lunn slowly took his machine to the pits so his
crew could fix the hood. A complete restart was in or-
der.
Once again, Glaser on the inside, Strehle on the out-
side, Strehle took the point over Gilbert Epsy, Glaser,
Lunn and Daniel Laird. Davey Wolf puts the heat on
Laird and takes over fifth. Wolf then passes Glaser and
takes over fourth as Glaser settles into fifth. Epsy puts
the heat on Strehle as he takes over the point with
Lunn on his tail for second and Strehle in third. Lunn


puts the heat on Epsy but Epsy wants nothing to do
with it and shuts the door quickly.
Lap nine sees Strehle retake second from Lunn as
Wolf passes Lunn for third and Lunn settles into
fourth. Lunn begins to slow badly as he slides back-
wards into the field. Epsy and Strehle are going at it
for first but a lap car gets in the way becoming the
middle of an oreo sandwich, Epsy is able to fight off
the hard charge of Strehle as he continues to lead the
way over Strehle, Wolf, Gilford Williams and Glaser.
Epsy takes the checkered for the win over Dalton
Strehle, Davey Wolf, Gilford Williams and RJ Glaser.
Modified were up next with Austin Sanders on the
pole and Dale Murray on the outside pole. Sanders
quickly takes the point over Murray, Jamie Carter, Jeff
Matthews and Larry Burkins. Matthews, who normally
races at Eastbay Raceway Park, puts the heat on Carter
and takes over third. Matthews then sets his eyes on
Murray and takes over second and finally gets the posi-
tion that he wants as he takes over the point from
Sanders. It is now Matthews, Sanders, Murray, Carter
and Burkins leading the way.
Racin' Jason Davis puts the heat on as he takes over
fifth. It is now'Matthews, Sanders, Murray, Burkins
and Davis leading the way. Carter is not happy in sixth
and retakes fifth from Davis on lap 11. Two laps later
Davis looks to be slowing which is something he sel-
dom does. Davis ends up spinning in turn four and
brings out the caution. Davis is done for the night.
It is now a single file restart as Matthews has the
point over Murray, Sanders, Burkins and Carter. Lap 16
sees Underwood having problems and bringing out the
caution as he is done for the night also. Four laps to go
as Matthews continues to lead the way over Murray,
Sanders, PJ Wiggins and Burkins. Burkins passes Wig-
-gins for fourth as James Smith passes Wiggins and
takes over fifth putting Wiggins in sixth.
Matthews has a 20 car lead.over the field as he takes
the checkered for the feature win over Dale Murray,
Austin Sanders, Larry Burkins and James Smith.
Street Stocks saw Phil Brown on the pole with Steve
.Oldaker on the outside pole. Oldaker quickly takes the,
point-over. Brown, Bubba Christian, Michael Tovet and


Steve Mooers on the
green. Mooers has his

Florida Fish Busters Bulletin


Expand your horizons with


freshwater fishes, turtles,


frogs, crayfish and mollusks

By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

Although Florida requires anyone between the ages of
16 and 65 to purchase a recreational freshwater fishing
license, there are animals you can take recreationally,
without a license, from fresh waterfor 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 understand that specific
regulations apply. 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 Conservation 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 human consumption. These
flattened looking turtles with leathery shells can inflict a
painful bite and have sharp claws, sobe careful if you
choose to harvest one.
Red-eared sliders are a common normative freshwater
turtle i Florida's waters, but people cannot catch them to
keep as'pets. While red-eared sliders can be taken and
used for human consumption, once captured, they cannot
be released back into Florida's waters.
Among the most common frdgs taken 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 areas prohibit this, so check the local
regulations.) Sale of frogs or frog legs requires a
commercial fishing license.-
Mollusks, which include mussels 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 throughout the
Panhandle. Possessing or disturbing these protected
speciebstai result in substantial penalties, so be sure to do
your research first.
The daily bag limit for unprotected mussels, such as.

Species of freshwater mussels from families other than
Unionidae or Margaritferidae, such as the Asian clam,
have no daily bag or possession limits and are often taken
for bait. People remoye 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 abundant "crawdads." These critters look like
little lobsters and are sometimes taken with small traps or

hands full with Grady Christian who takes over fifth as
Mooers goes to sixth.
Lap three Grady challenges Tovet and takes over
fourth as Tovet goes to fifth. It is now Oldaker, Brown,
Bubba Christian, Grady Christian and Tovet. Grady
then puts the heat on nephew Bubba and takes over
third. Phil Brown is the next victim as Grady passes
him for second and sets his eyes on leader Oldaker. By
lap nine, Grady has the point followed by Oldaker,
Brown, Bubba Christian and Mooers.
Lap 12 sees the caution come out for Michael Tovet
who has spun in turn three hitting the wall slightly. At


this time Oldaker also retires to the pits. As the field
goes back to green, it is Grady Christian, Brown, Bub-
ba Christian, Mooers and Tim Hughes. Lap 16 sees
Bubba Christian challenge Brown but Brown shuts the
door. Lap 18 Bubba challenges one more time but
Brown once again shuts the door.
Once again Grady Christian takes the checkered over
Phil Brown, Bubba Christian, Steve Mooers and Tim
Hughes.
The hour is very late so some fans have gone home
and missed the final race of the night - the Late Mod-
els. Twenty-two out of the 29 are in the field for the
night's feature race with Jason Fitzgerald on the inside
and Racin Jason Davis on the outside. Fitzgerald
quickly takes the point over Davis, Johnny Collins,
Andy.Schell and Jack Nosbisch Jr. Nosbisch passes
Schell for fourth as Darell Padgett takes over fifth fol-
lowed by Dillion Wood, Donnie Chappell, Stanton.
Mills, Rich Pratt, Bobby Richardson and Chris Free-
man.
The yellow comes out on lap 10 for Lawton
Minchew who has spun in turns one and two. With
Fitzgerald inside and Collins outside, the field is ready
to go back green. This is all that Collins needed as he.


takes over the point putting Fitzgerald second fol-
loweed by Davis, Nosbisch, and Padgett. Lap 13
Fitzgerald comes back and retakes the point but Collins
retakes it back on lap 14. Lap 17 sees the caution come
out for a spin in turn four. The field gets back to green
fast due to the lateness of the hour and approaching
storm as Collins leads the way over Jason Fitzgerald,
Jason Davis, Darell Padgett and Donnie Chappell.
Chris Freeman brings out the caution on lap 17 as he
spins on the backstretch. Collins takes the point on the
green followed by Fitzgerald, Davis, Padgett and Chap-
pell. But it is a short green as the caution comes out
again on lap 18 for Cory Hupp who has spun at the
bottom of turn four.
With no more cautions, Collins leads the way on the
restart followed by Fitzgerald, Davis, Padgett and
Chappell. Padgett challenges Davis for third but Davis
quickly shuts the door. Collins takes the checkered for
his second win of the night over Jason Fitzgerald, Ja-
son Davis, Darell Padgett,and Shan Smith,
Volusia Speedway Park will be closed Aug. 22, but
will return Aug. 29 with Late Models, Sportsman,

All about sea turtles


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 loggerhead,
endangered green, and endangered leatherback
sea turtles have been incubating in the warm
sand for 45 days or more. Soon baby sea turtles,
or hatchlings, 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 juvenile and subadults to feed.
Female sea turtles often return to nest on the
same sandy beaches 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 hatchlings have evolved to
find-the bright horizon over the open ocean as
they move across the dark nighttime beach."
Beachfront lights, bright flashlights and
lanterns on the beach can confuse them,
causing female sea turtles to leave without
nesting, and adults and hatchlings 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 focus other
lights directly where
they are.needed,
limiting the amount
of light spill or
trespass onto the
nesting beach.
* Shield light


sources and use apprompi te bulbs stuch aIs ed
or amber LED, o bu bug lbs. These bulbs emit
a long-wavelength light that is less likely\ [t'
confuse or disoi ent adult or hatchlings sea
turtles on the beach
* If you must use a flashlight on the beach.
keep the beam focused on the ground in front of
you. Do not point it do\\ n the beach or to\ ard
the water.
As part of a grant from the National Fish and
Wildlife Foundaiorn. the F\\C is offering a
Shield Loan program for proper\ o\\ ners 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 property ow ners \w ho
agree to manage their lights to minimize light
trespass onto adjacent 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 Chiis Milne at
561-575-5408. Information on the FWC Shield
Loan Program also is a\ ailable at
MyFWC.com/SeaTurtle.
Ifyou see eggs. 1an exposed nest. tihtclling
sea turtles, or an injured or dead turitl oni the
beach, please contact tli FI\C at 888-404-
FWCC (404-3922). Do not handle or collect
eggs or remove haitchings from the beach .4ll
such activities wiith sea tu ritle require a special
permit from the FtC.

Loggerhead sea turtle facts:

I The turtle is named for its large head, which may be
10-12 inches wide.
'Powerful jaw muscles enable the loggerhead to crush
hca\ y-,helled clams, marine snails, horseshoe crabs and
crustaceans
" Loggerhead turtles reach maturity after 20-40 years and
could ha\e a lifespan of 70 years or more.
" Adult turtles weigh 200-350 pounds and measure 4 feet
in length.
SHatchlings are 2 inches long.
* Threats on nesting beaches include habitat alterations
from coastal armoring and beach lighting.
* During the nesting season, females remain in shallow
areas near their nesting beaches.
* Most loggerheads that nest in Florida are found:
* from Volusia to Broward counties
* from Monroe to Pinellas counties
* Franklin County west
The loggerhead moves on land by using diagonally
opposite flippers at the same time. The center of the track
looks like a wavy line in the sand.
* After nesting, loggerheads disperse to feeding grounds
throughout the Bahamas, Cuba, the Dominican Republic,
north along the eastern U.S. coast and south through the
Florida Keys and the Gulf of Mexico.
" Once a nest site has been chosen, a body pit is
exca ated by digging with four limbs and rotating the body.
This removes the dry surface sand that could collapse, and
places the egg cavity at a greater depth. When the body pit
is complete, an egg cavity is dug using the cupped rear
flippers as shovels.
* Two-thirds of the time involved in nesting takes place
after the eggs have been laid as the female covers and
disguises the nest.
* Turtles are not easily disturbed once egg-laying has
begun. The vulnerable time for disturbance occurs during
emergence from the water,
ascending the beach or when
digging a nest cavity. Sea
turtles may abandon their


nesting if they are bothered by
Slights or unusual activity
nearby (motion on the beach.
sounds, etc.).
. * False crawl - A sea turtle
S that ascends the beach and
' abandons its nesting attempt
and returns to tie water.
* Loggerhead turtles will
-. nest at 12-15 day intervals
. .-:. ' throughout nesting season.

consumption in things such as Cajun
stews or Creole recipes. Red swamp
,' .and white river crayfish are the most
corbtmon species used for these
purposes. They are found in ditches and
+" '�. vegetated areas with clear water and
often around algae-covered rocks.
Traps are baited with abundant amounts

Leaving the trap overnight is normally

Did you know?

Music therapy has been shown to help in the healing process of a variety of
ailments or conditions, be they physical or mental. Researchers at the Institute
for Music Therapy in Germany, for instance, studied the effects of music
therapy when used to treat children with developmental delay. Researchers
studied a group of 12 children between 4 and 6.5 years of age with
developmental ages between I to 3.5 years. They were able to note the effects
of musical therapy on the children' development, which showed significant .
improvements, including better hearing and speech and improved hand-eye
coordination in the children after exposure to the therapy. Music therapy has
also proven effective in treating depression in older patients. A study by
researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine concluded that music
therapy showed great potential as a beneficial intervention for homebound
elderly people who have limited access to healthcare professionals.

,UF's equine neonatal intensive care unit offers state-of-the-art care to foals.suffering frorm a variety of ailments, - Photo courtesy UF


By Sarah Carey
W hen Ocala resident Irene Bryan's
Appaloosa mare, Skippa Secret, gave
birth to a premature foal last year, both
mother and baby needed immediate medical care.
Thanks to veterinarians at the University of Florida's
Hofmann Neonatal Intensive Care Unit,.both horses
survived.
"Our personal veterinarian, Dr. Andy Bennett,
responded to my call in the middle 'of the night,"
Bryan said. "Based on what he saw after coming out
and performing X-rays on site, he recommended that
we get both horses to the foal unit at UF as soon as
possible."
When Bryan arrived at UF's large animal hospital,
Bryan said veterinary emergency team members were
waiting for them outside the facility with a gurney.
"I was immediately impressed," she said; "The
overall experience was very satisfying."
The foal was treated for eight days with
antimicrobials and supportive care forprematurity
and sepsis. In addition, Skippa Secret was
successfully treated for a retained placenta. UF :
veterinarians continue to monitor the pair's progress,
although both animals are successfully recuperating at
home.
Meanwhile, Bryan's 9-year-old granddaughter, who
witnessed much of the horses' ordeal, has decided she
wants to become a veterinarian.
"The foal was a gift to my granddaughter so that
shb could show her in halter competition through 4-
H," Bryan said. "She's now spending a lot of time
with the foal and hopes to learn more about veterinary
medicine because of this experience."
UF's neonatal intensive care unit, commonly
referred to as the "foal unit," was established in the
early 1980s and was the result of a unique partnership
between veterinary specialists and human
neonatologists at the UF Health Science Center.
Neonatology research at UF has been funded by the
Morris Animal Foundation and Florida's Pari-Mutuel
Trust Fund as well as by the Florida Thoroughbred


Breeders & Owners Association.
The state-of-the-art facility is staffed by board-
certified specialists who can provide immediate
medical attention and handle any level of care
quickly. The foal unit is Florida's only equine
neonatal ICU that provides treatment by board-
certified internists round-the clock for critically ill
foals and their dams, 365 days a year.
"We've got the crash cart ready to go," said Dana
Zimmel, D.V.M., a board-certified internist
specializing in equine medicine and an assistant
professor of large animal medicine at UF
Most foals treated at UF's foal unit are born
prematurely or are under a month old. Among the
most common ailments treated at the unit are bacterial
infections, which can produce clinical signs within the
first 24 hours after birth or the first month of life.
The vast majority of cases seen at UF's foal unit are
considered emergencies.
"Primarily, we see foals with sepsis, or bacterial
infections in their bloodstream; foals which have
diarrhea or foals'who have problems because they
suffer from hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, or a
lack of oxygen around the time of birth," Zimmel
said. "Those foals, known as dummy foals, appear
normal at first and then within the first 48 hours of
life they lose the ability to nurse. They also lose their
affinity for the mare and often progress to not being
able to stand and even experience seizures."
Many foals which have been treated for "dummy
foal syndrome" have gone on to become outstanding
athletes, Zimmel said. Strike the Gold, the 1991
Kentucky Derby winner, is just one example.
Thoroughbred breeding season takes place between
Jan. 1 and June 30, but occasionally foals will be
admitted to UF in the fall months, Zimmel said. The
unit will accept patients from referring veterinarians
as well as from individual clients who would like to
bring their foals directly to UF's large animal hospital.
Anyone seeking more information about the foal
unit should call the large animal hospitalfront desk at
352-392-2229.

An out-of-control wildfire. - Photo: Submitted ,


New UF-housed wildfire 'strike team'



teaches safe burning techniques


GAINESVILLE-When it
comes to fighting fires, it's
usually the guy with the
hose that gets all the hero
worship. But as ever-
increasing temperatures
and droughts bring a
greater threat from
wildfires, sometimes it's
the guy with a torch who
can do the most good.
"Fire is an art," said
Parker Titus, a specialist
with more than 400 ,
controlled burns on his
resume. "It's one of the
most powerful influences
on our natural systems.
Knowing how to use it -
and not let it get out of
control - is an essentials
part of the conservation
effort."


This week, Titus and his
crew, the newly formed
Northeast Florida Resource
Management Support
Team, will be sharing that
knowledge with 40
students and public agency
employees.
The team will help teach
how to stay safe while
practicing controlled bums
as part of a weeklong basic
wildland firefighter
training program
conducted by the
University of Florida, The
Nature Conservancy and
the Natural Areas Training
Academy.
The course will be a mix
of classroom instruction on
the UF campus and a day
of hands-on demonstration


at the Ordway-Swisher
Biological Station in
Putnam County, where the
team is housed.
"We have a full roster of
students and a long waiting
list," said Linda
Demetropoulos, the
training academy's
program manager. "This is
an issue that people who
work in settings like parks
and preserves need to
know about."
Controlled burns seek to
use fire to remove the
natural clutter that serves
as kindling for larger and
more dangerous wildfires.
Last year alone, 2,894
wildfires burned more than
100,000 acres n Florida.
One blaze resulted in


nearly $10 million in
property damage.
According to a report
issued in an April edition
of the journal Science,
rising temperatures
associated with climate
change are increasing this
wildfire threat nationwide.
However, prescribed
burning is much more than
just a preventative
measure. Much of
Florida's wildlife relies on
fire to renew natural
habitat. Species like the
gopher tortoise and the
Florida scrub jay rely on it.
"We live in a balance
with nature, or we try to,"
said Zachary Prusak, state
fire manager for the
conservancy. "Controlled


burning reduces the
intensity of wildfires and
keeps our habitats healthy."
Managed by the
conservancy and supported


by UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences,
the team consists of Titus,
Andrew Rappe, Andrew
Slack and Daniel Godwin.
The four are responsible for
helping many public
agencies east of Interstate
75 from Orlando north to
the Georgia border.
Also charged with tasks
such as removing invasive
species and monitoring
wildlife, the crew has aided
in nearly 50 controlled
burns since it was'
established roughly a year
ago with funds from a
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
grant.
The typical tool used for
controlled burning is called
a drip torch, which looks a
bit like a pesticide sprayer
whose nozzle has been
swapped out with a
firelighter. This torch is
what most of the students
will be learning to use.
The team also has a few
tools that aren't for
novices, such as a heavy-
duty pickup and ATV, both
equipped with mounted
torches and other
modifications. Then there
are the even less
conventional tools
sometimes employed to set
a controlled fire.
Titus says he's seen flare
pistols, bows loaded with
flaming arrows, helicopters
with flame throwers and,
even torches carried
horseback.
"You use whatever you
have that will work well,"
he said. "But you never -
forget that your first
priority is always safety."
