 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

Preliminary figures released
by the University of Florida
Monday shows a 1.7 percent
decrease in Suwannee Coun-
ty's population over the past
year. This is the first decrease


in the county's population
since the university began
gathering such data in 1972.
The university's director of
Bureau of Economic and
Business Research, who led
the research, said the ailing
economy and housing market
is to blame for the loss of res-


years
idents.
"I believe it's the recession
and the housing bust that con-
tributed to this," said Stan
Smith: "I believe those are the
major factors."
The state's population is
down as well, with 58,000
leaving in the last year. Smith
said that is the largest exodus

High school dropout rate is focus of forum


By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com
N early 200 people
gathered Tuesday
evening to discuss
ways to combat
the high school dropout rate in
Suwannee County - highest in
the state in 2007-08. The forum,
sponsored by. the Suwannee


County Chamber of Commerce,
was held at the Suwannee River
Water Management Office.
Local school officials, teach-
ers, parents and concerned
community members met to
give input about what can be
done to keep kids in school and
close gaps that seem to be
widening in local student
achievement. The meeting


brought forth a plethora of edu-
cational issues plaguing the
community and hardly any
could be solved with simple so-
lutions.
"We're at the point here in
Suwannee County where we
can no longer sit at home and
do nothing," said Superinten-
dent Jerry Scarborough. "Our
children are the most important


resources we have."


The problem
In 2007-08 Suwannee Coun-
ty's high school dropout rate
was 6.8 percent, the highest in
Florida, and well above the
state average of 2.6 percent.

State 'clarifies'
earlier document
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com
The state Department of Ed-
ucation issued a memo Aug.
12 to "clarify the direction" of
the state's educational GED
Exit Option after an earlier
document led many tobelieve
the state program had been
canceled.
An uproar was caused July
31 when Frances Haithcock,
the state's chancellor of public
schools, sent out a memo to

district administrators that
stated: "the GED Exit Option
will no longer be available to
students in Fldrida, effective

However, that simply wasn't
the case, Haithcock assured
the public in the later docu-
ment.
According to Haithcock,

some of the many donations made. Suwannee County 4-H
thanks you for your donation of money, time, and effort to
make the banquet possible. Thank you!
Many awards were given out at the banquet to celebrate
the accomplishments of our 4-H members. Blue ribbon
record books, judging team members and coaches and
special awards were just a few of the categories that were
recognized at the banquet. Members of 4-H, along with
Extension staff, presented certificates, pins, and awards to
the recipients. Congratulations to each of the winners for all
of their hard work throughout the past year.

Man struck

by car escapes

serious injury

By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

A Live Oak man was not
seriously injured when hit
by a vehicle Wednesday in
front of the Beverage Barn
on US 129 North,
according to Live Oak
Police Det. Sgt. Ron Shaw.
A press release was not
available, but according to
Shaw, the victim was
Walking across the street to
the Beverage Ban to
purchase alcohol when he
was hit. Shaw said the
impact was enough to
"knock him over," but
didn't appear to be'life
S threatening.
Shaw said it appears the
. man might have been
intoxicated.
"Alcohol is probably
going to be a factor," said
Shaw.
The man, whose name
was not released, has since
been released from the
. hospital, said Shaw.


One by one each year flew by,
Since you both said, "I do"
60 years of memories,
Shared by the two of you.
From big events and holidays
To simple daily pleasures,
Some tearful times along life's way,
Some joys that can't be measured
One by one each year now gone,
But stllithey're yours forever
Each and every memory,
Of sbxty years together

OUR

Suwannee Democrat

The facts, plain

and simple, on

underage drinking
An important study on the dam-
aging effects of underage drinking
in Florida was published in early
June and much discussed in the
larger dailies. We editorialized in
favor of the county's going wet a
little more than a week later. More
than a few folks made the connec-
tion and called our attention to the
report.
We finally decided a few com-
ments were in order, mainly be-
cause there is no connection - at
least not in the way some have sug-
gested. Folks seem worried that le-
galizing the sale of liquor may lead
our youth down the .wrong path.
That might be a reasonable concern
- if not for another statewide study.
SThe Florida Youth Substance
Abuse Survey, published yearly by'
the state Department of Children
and Families, shows that many
Suwannee County youngsters have
already taken steps in the wrong di-
rection. Middle school students in
Suwannee ranked fifth in the state
in underage drinking in 2008 - sixth
in binge drinking.
, Believe it or not, that's an im-
provement. Underage drinking in
Suwannee was down 6.3 percent
over, 2006, the last year for which a
county-by-county breakdown is
available. Without the good work of
people like Mary Taylor and the
Suwannee Drug Free Coalition,
who knows. It might be even
worse.
Underage drinking is a devastat-
ing problem which deserves more
attention than it's received. Howev-
er, the issue of legalized liquor is" a
separate matter, plain and simple.
The suggestion that legalizing the
sale of liquor would expose our
young people to a danger hereto-
fore unknown is at best puzzling
and at worst intellectually dishon-
est. We welcome a rigorous debate,
but let's stick to the facts, folks.

Substance Abuse Survey is

Want to vent? Our

hotline is open 24/7.
Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak your mind! How? By
calling the Suwannee Democrat Rant and Rave hotline. The
hotline never 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 respectfid way.
Note: In written entries to Rant and Rave, errors in spelling,
grammar or punctuation are those of the authors.

Well stated friend, the Good Book also says "let the poor man
drink his wine"&"all the fruits and herbs are here to be enjoyed".
It also warns against "false prophets" which could cover a lot of
tv evangelists & fanatical spin off Christian sects. Personally, I
feel that it boils down to " Judge not lest ye be judged". Stand-
ing in a church does not make you a Christian anymore than
standing in a garage makes you a car! While it is good our gov-
't is tempered with judeo-christian beliefs, I have yet to see ar-
chaic Hebrew charectars on the founding documents signifying
God's approval.

These people are not fighting for Christian values. They are
fighting to be able to continue, unchecked by the real world to
practice, hate crimes, censorship, exclusivity, nepotism,racism,
intolerance, religious discrimination, chauvinism, corruption,
embezzlement, and exploitation. All land owners that are fed up
with carrying Suwannee County on their backs should withhold
payment of their property taxes to the last possible date, and then
make a commitment for the next 90 days to vote with their dol-
lars. Purchase all goods and services outside of Suwannee Coun-
ty in places that try to support the tax payer. I am home grown,
are you going to tell me to leave as well?

Recently, someone called in to rave about the animal control
in this community. Well I would certainly welcome them into
my neighborhood. There's dogs roaming everyday. I think that
everybody in the neighborhood lets their dog out when they
leave work. And you would think that if your own dog is getting
into your own garbage and turning it over and making a mess,
that you would grow a brain and think of a solution to secure that
dog. but this happens everyday. So I would welcome animal
control into my neighborhood. And that's the north end of town,
second street and Lime Avenue and Evelyn Avenue. Animal con-
trol can come any day of the week and there will be roaming
dogs.

Last Tuesday, I ran out of gas in downtown Live Oak in front
of Suzie's. A very nice young woman in a black KIA and a
young man in a Securliy Safe Company truck got out of their
vehicles and helped me push my car from the traffic lane to the
parking lane. Then my good friend Lynn Lee came and took me
to get some gas and then stayed until my car started.
Live Oak may have .a lot of problems with politics, but what
city doesn't?, I have stayed in Live Oak for almost 40 years, not
because it was a dry county, not because of crazy politics, but
because the people are so nice and help one another. I can't
imagine having this same situation in Ft. Lauderdale and some-
one stopping to help; not likely, but maybe. So "thank you" to
those people who stopped to help. It was very appreciated.

I couldn't agree more with the comment in last week's Rant-n-
Rave regarding formalizing a plan to make this county wet. Lots
of citizens are ready to join. Why doesn't the Chamber of Com-
merce.serve as the organizing party? It makes sense in that their
objective is to promote economic development in the County.
Come on Chamber of Commerce, step up to the plate. This is
long overdue.

This healthcare debacle is nothing but propaganda. It won't
help you, it won't lower costs, it will cause you to lose your cur-
rent health coverage and doctor. I t will limit your coverage ac-

cording to age and at age 65 you will be require to attend end of

I was flabbergasted when I read today's Suwannee Democrat.
The media with the Hispanics communities had to have an in-
terpreter because the Hispanics haven't learned to speak English
yet. Williams said they weren't there because they were illegal.
So it's okay to break the law and come into this country illegal-
ly but then they holler because someone invades their home be-
cause that's illegal. Come on, go back to where you come from.
If you're not legal in the country, get out.

It appears to me that after this quote town hall unquote meet-
ing that Congressman Allen Boyd doesn't really care what we
think. I think it's time for new leadership.

I was reading in the paper where Tommy's widow has to re-
pay $13,000 because somebody made a mistake. That is ab-
solutely ridiculous. It's bad enough they have to cut the woman's
benefits in half, but to expect her to repay $13,000 because
somebody doesn't know how to keep the books and they can't
communicate from point A to point B. Everybody in the town
knew that man died. It was all over the papers, they had memo-
rial services and everything. It's absolutely ludicrous to expect
her to repay this money especially three.years after the.man was
dead. I think the city should eat it. They need to eat the money
and absorb the cost because it was their mistake not hers.

This is. a rant. I would like to rant against the sheriffs office.
At 7:40 on Sunday afternoon a sheriffs car, came down 92nd
Street at approximately 90 miles an hour with the lights flashing
and the siren going. This is a 25 mile per area residen.ti.al.ig
birhood. There are children playing on the sides of'th"i'bai.
There are old people walking animals and there is absolutely no
excuse for the speed that this officer was going irregardless of
the emergency that he was responding to. I think the sheriff
needs to slow everything down coming through these residential
neighborhoods even though its an emergency, and if not I will be
seeing about contacting the state attorney office because blue
lights and sirens ask for the right of way they do not demand it.

In 1981 President Reagan signed the Economic Recovery Tax
Act. It was the largest tax cut in American history, It launched
one of the longest economic. booms in US history. Wake up
politicians, wake up, review your history.

Concerning the wet or dry issue in Suwannee County this is
my say. If freedom and liberty prevail, prosperity is always the
result. If freedom and liberty are restricted, prosperity will with-
er and die. It's up to you Suwannee County.

I am a home and property owner in Suwannee County and a
citizen of Suwannee County. I pay property tax on time every
year. I have no county water, sewer, garbage pickup at all. I have
no fire protection except volunteers. I have at best minimal law
enforcement protection. So tell me again why I pay property tax-
es for the privilege of living in Suwannee County?.

In US history America has only lost two wars: the War on
Poverty and the War on Drugs. Poverty explains itself. The War
on Drugs has accomplished two things: inflating the budget pt
government and causing the drug dealers and smugglers to in-
crease their budgets on more sophisticated evasion technology.
Legalism and taxation would end both wars. A former DEA
agent.

Town Council to put greater emphasis on training

For the first time in 15
years in office, Branford
Town Council President
S;Shirley Clark attended the
: annual League of Cities
c::i.'conference last weekend
Along with more than 1,000
city officials from through-
out Florida. It was decided
that she would be the only
town council member to at-
tend, due mostly to the cost
of travel.
The Town Council has
recently begun putting a
greater emphasis on gain-
S ing new information that
S 'will help in making impor-
tant decisions for the town,
according to Clark.
"We're trying to find out
new information in order to
help the town," said Clark.
She said the conference
definitely enhanced her un-
derstaiding of a town
. council's role in a commu-
nity. Branford Town Coun-

cil members have also re-
cently attended some infor-
mation sessions through
the Suwannee River
League of Cities, a local
chapter here in Suwannee
CountN.
Most of the council
members had never, or
rarely receive ed similar
training until recently: Ac-
cording to Town Clerk


Donna Hardin, this is be-
cause the information ses-
sions are usually costly and
held at distant locations.
There are currently
scholarships available
through the League to pro-
mote participation from
smaller towns that have not
alh ays attended, according
to Lynn Tipton;,director of
membership development


with the League of Cities.
Tipton says training classes
that take place three times a
year at different locations
in Florida, sometimes as
close as Gainesville, have
been sold out for over a
decade.
"The problem has al-
ways been \\hose going to
pay for it," said Tipton.
However, she says the


training and information
participants receive is %\ell
worth the cost.
A representative of
Suannee Riler League of
Cities, said the local chap-
ter is currently planning to
host more information ses-
sion and creating ays to
make it easier and more af-
fordable for local officials
to take part.

The town of Branford is
currently planning to
renovate this home into
a heritage house. It will
feature artifacts from the
south county area and
possibly a genealogy
research room. The
heritage house will depend
on the help of volunteers.

MAYO - Thirty minutes
before Allen Boyd arrived
at his town hall meeting at
Mayo's Community Center
Monday, people were al-
ready milling about and
sharing their views with
the ever-growing crowd.
The prevailing sentiment
was clearly of a conserva-
tive nature.
Chan Perry, president of
Drummond Community
Bank in Mayo, was the
first to stand and speak.
"From what I hear, at
the other meetings he's
been to, he hasn't an-
swered the questions,:'
Perry said. "I think we
should all agree to basical-
ly force him to answer the
questions by not allowing
him to move on without
doing so. He's gonna dally
or not answer the ques-
tions at all."
Perry was followed by
someone shouting, "He's
gonna be out of work next
year!"
Troy Thomson stood up
next.
"I understand govern-
ment says he's not gonna
unplug me and grandma,"
Thomson said, pausing as
the crowd chuckled. "Well
you know what the prob-
lem is? He's not gonna
plug us in to start with."
The comment was fol-
lowed by cheers and ap-

plause.
Boyd entered the room
and interrupted Thomson
by saying, "Anytime I can
gather a crowd for you, let
me know."
Boyd began on a pes-
simistic note.
"I think for the first time
we're in danger of the
quality of life going down
for the next generation in-
stead of up," he said. "The
one thing I want to do in
politics is make life better
for my children."
He added, "In the 20
years I've attended town
hall meetings in Lafayeite
County, the issue of
healthcare has always
come up."
Boyd said he wanted to
slow the process of health-
care legislation so that he
could get out and hear
public opinion.
"We shouldn't put an ar-
bitrary timeline on this,
we should do it right,"
said Boyd.
He then held up HR
3200, one of the bills un-
der consideration in Con-
gress, and said, "I will not
support the bill in the form
it's in now."
The remark was fol-
lowed by cheers from the
audience.
Boyd said the possible
changes to the bill sug-
gested Monday by Presi-
dent Obama are just a
start. (These changes in-
clude the possible elimina-
tion of a public option in
the reform package.)
Boyd said a responsible
healthcare reform should
have: lower cost for every-
one, patient choice, im-
proved access to coverage,
and must be paid for, and
not add to the deficit.
The crowd of about 200
found many of Boyd's an-
swers to their questions
confusing or unsatisfying.
The meeting was punctu-
ated by catcalls and angry
outbursts from the audi-
ence.
Robin Doyel said that
she was uninsured be-
cause, being a small busi-
ness owner, she could not
afford the premiums. "I
get a payment book at the
end of a hospital visit.
What's the difference in
making my payments at
the end instead of before?"
she said. Boyd went on to
suggest that it is the unin-
sured that make insurance
premiums go up. "Are you
saying I'm a leach on soci-
ety?" asked Doyel. Boyd
shrugged his shoulders
and lifted his hands.
Cecelia Koon, a student
at Lafayette High School,
asked the congressman, "I

the meeting.

want to go to college, get
a good job so I can afford
my own healthcare. But
why should I,do that when
I can graduate high
school, get a low income
job and have the govern-
ment pay for my health-
care?" said Koon. Boyd
never seemed to directly
answer her question.
"Are you going to use
the same healthcare as
us?" asked Linda Timer.
"Will you have to pay the
8 percent (proposed tax)?"
Boyd answered, "No-
body wants to be told
what healthcare they have
to have." He was inter-
rupted by someone shout-
ing, "Well you're leUing
us!"
Lana Morgan, Lafayette
County's supervisor of
elections, stood up and
said "Allen, this looks like
socialized medicine to
me."
Afterward, most seemed
happy with the tone of the
meeting, but many were
confused by the congress-
man's answers or, as they
saw it, lack thereof.
Afterward, Koon said
Boyd handled himself
well under the circum-
stances.
S"I think it went good
considering the.fact that
most of the people here
are Republican not Demo-
crat, except that he never
answered the questions
himself," she said.
Timer echoed Koon's
remarks about Boyd's eva-
siveness.
"He never gave us any
answers," she said after
the meeting. "He never
answered the questions."
"It was all a little con-
fusing," said county com-
missioner Ernest Jones. "I
agree that we do need to
do something, but I don't
think it should be done by


the government. Still, I do
think we need to do some-
thing."
Jones said he respected
the congressman forcom-
ing, considering that most
of those present were
more conservative than
the Blue Dog Democrat.
Some said they've seen
progress due to citizens'
efforts nationwide.
"There have already
been changes to the bill,
and that's because of these
town hall meetings," said
one unidentified visitor.
Most are also happy that
he does not support HR
3200, and if bill does go
through, most are confi-,
dent Allen Boyd and the
other "Blue Dog" Dem6c-
rats would vote against it.
Many, however, re-
mained skeptical. .
"I'm upset with the
healthcare reform as it is.
I'm upset with the repre-
sentatives. We're riot get-
ting answers. Those of us
who disagree with govern-
ment healthcare are la-
beled as radicals or that
we're being paid to be
here, which we're not,"
said Jennifer Donaway, of,
Mayo.
Donaway's daughter,
Florida State student Sara
Donaway, said she was
still forming her opinion
on healthcare reform.,
"It is going to affect us
(young adults) now and in
the future, so I need to be ,
informed," said Sara.
"Right now I'm leaning to-
wards not supporting a.
government healthcare
system."
Greg Gatzke, 24, said
"It's basically a faulty sys-
tem that they're proposing.
It's the rewording of the
same tired ideology as
was'used in Marxist soci-
eties like the Soviet Union
and in Burma."

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
pressed through his fear and proceeded to talk with her, discovering that they had a lot in
common. 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.
After 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. .s+.
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
teacherr, 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
'ee the dentist and, after a couple of weeks, returned to school with a brand-new smile.
What 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
iin 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't lecture or embarrass you about your smile. If you could identify with
SCarmen in that story, then come and see me at Smile Designs By Dr. Charlotte Gerry.
Ican help you obtain an unbelievable smile at a believable price.

Mosquito awareness:



Protection and prevention


By Michael Mitchell
Environmental Health Director
Suwannee/Lafayette County Health
Department


Summertime means warm weather,
vacations, and fun. It also means more
time outdoors and more exposure to " -
outdoor pests, including mosquitoes.
With their constant buzzing and itchy
bites, we are all too familiar with mosquitoes' annoying
habits, but with every bite a more threatening problem
awaits: disease.
Dengue Fever, Yellow Fever and malaria - all remind us
the mosquito is an insect to avoid. Not all species of
mosquitoes found in Florida carry diseases that affect
humans or animals. Approximately 80 species of
mosquitoes have been identified in traps in the state of
Florida. Thirteen species are known to pass on disease.
that can harm either humans and/or animals.
One type of disease found in the United States is
Arboviral Encephalitis, which is a disease that causes the
swelling :of'the brain and is'spread by mosquitoes. Within
this group of diseases are West Nile virus encephalitis,
Eastern equine encephalitis and St. Louis encephalitis.
All are found in the United States. Of these, St. Louis
encephalitis is the most common in Florida. Currently,
there are vaccines for horses for some of these diseases;
however, vaccines are not yet available to humans.
With mosquito-borne diseases causing symptoms like
brain swelling, fatigue, fevers and possible death; it is
necessary we know how to protect ourselves. Mosquitoes

are attracted to moisture, carbon dioxide and odor. To
cover up one's odor, people protect themselves by using a
repellent, such as bug spray. Before applying any skin
repellent, make sure that you always read label directions
carefully for the approved usage. Please note that not all
repellents are safe for children. Therefore, make sure the
repellent is age-appropriate before applying. Two
chemicals that are added to insect repellent and are NOT
recommended to be put on younger children are:
* Oil of lemon eucalyptus (approved for use on
children 3 years and older)
* DEET (approved for children 2 months or older)
One way to protect infants is to use mosquito netting
over their carriers. In addition, if you have to be outdoors
during the peak mosquito times (dawn and dusk), make
sure you cover up with pants and a long sleeved shirt that,
are light in color.
Another easy way to reduce the likelihood of getting bit
is to reduce breeding sites for mosquitoes. Mosquitoes lay
eggs on water. Therefore, any item that can hold water,
such as old tires, buckets, birdbaths or clogged gutters, is
a good place for them to breed. Some suggested actions to
take are:
* Empty birdbaths twice a week.
* Turn buckets and boats upside down so that they
cannot hold water after it rains.
* Clean gutters especially during the months when
leaves fall.

Mosquitoes are not just annoying pests, they are
parasites, and the diseases they carry are no joke.

High school dropout rate is focus of forum


Continued From Page 1A


programs for Suwannee
County Schools, gave a
presentation to show just
how much Suwannee
County high school stu-
dents are lagging in read-
ing and math in accor-
dance with FCAT stan-
dards.
,On a scale of one to five,
with three considered per-
formance on grade level,
47. percent of white stu-
dents and 24 percent of
African American students
performed at or above
grade level in reading at
SHS for 2008. The state
benchmark was 58 percent
thatyear.
,.In 2009, 41 percent of
whites and 17 percent of
African Americans per-
formed at or above grade
leoel in reading. Mean-
while, the state benchmark
had risen to 65 percent.
, ,'As you can see, we are
not closing that gap a
whole lot," Udell said.
r.For economically disad-
vantaged (ED) students -.
mainly comprising minori-
ty subgroups - the numbers
were just as disheartening
HSS.
2008, 33 percent of
students were perform-
ioga t grade level in read-
inl, while that number
d&ped to 27 percent

iachmark rises. Thus,

ipttions are going. p, "
s .school board member
James Cooper. "They're
not going down."
Cooper made a point to
note that Suwannee Coun-
' l1 , .,, , ^ ,,"


ty students are competing
not only against one anoth-
er, but on, a global scale.
"What happens if you
don't close the gap?" he
asked. "Then jobs will
continue to go overseas."
John Martz, Executiye
V.P./CEO of Suwannee
Valley Electric and moder-
ator of Tuesday's discus-
sion, said his fear is that if
change. doesn't take place
in Suwannee County there
will be no one to replace
business leaders, like him-
self, who are getting older.


The breakdown
Elizabeth Simpson, di-
rector of student services
for Suwannee County
Schools, said the reality of
the dropout situation is
that "it is hurting the com-
munity long term. We have
to start making a differ-
ence at the ninth-grade
level."
She said somewhere
along the way students are
not developing a mentality
that says "I want to
achieve."
To combat this, the
school system has imple-
mented. Accel-R-8 classes
at the high school for
struggling, over-age and
repeat eighth-grade stu-
dents. The program, which
will house students at the
high school and help them
progress into the ninth
grade, is only one step,
Simpson said.
Advancing Via Individ-
ual Determination (AVID)
classes are also in the
.works for Suwannee
County schools. This pro-
gram is aimed at "meeting
students where they are,"
Simpson said. "We need to
hook them in and make

More to come
"I think we have had a

time for an overhaul," said

Board Chairman Jerry
Taylor agreed. He said
more meetings similar to
the one Tuesday would

ture."
Current plans include a
push to more carefully
monitor students who may
. be at risk for dropping out
of school, increase mentor-
ship, and encourage partic-
ipation in extra-curricular
activities and after school
* programs.
"We have to help them
feel validated," Simpson
said.
"They'll try harder for
someone who believes in
them," said Cheryl Mae
Brinson, district director
of assessment and sec-
ondary curriculum.
Tom Burnett, a commu-
nity volunteer, suggested
that part of the problem
may be that there are not
enough counselors to aid
students at the high
school., The campus,
which has nearly 1,300.
students, only has two
guidance counselors to as-
sist its ninth- through
twelfth-graders.
School board member
Julie Ulmer asked
whether expulsion rates
were to blame for the
county's high dropout
rates. She then suggested
that alternative options be
put in place throughout
the district to retain more
kids in school.
Marlon Ivey, a commu-
nity leader, suggested that
the low number of African
American educators in the
county may be part of the
reason for so many black
students -falling through
the cracks.
"I can count the number
of African American male
teachers on one hand," he
said. Annette Chauncey, an
eighth-grade science
teacher,' said that often
"with absences,, students
,


stay out, and stay out, until
they drop out."
She wanted assurance
that the proper chains of
follow-up would be carried
out in the future.

The many solutions
"My goal is to have an
academics booster club,",
said Jerry Scarborough, in
a kind of altar call. "We
need 100 coaches to step
forward and say Jerry, I'm
going to fill in the gap.",
Elizabeth Simpson said
four new counselors are
currently being inter-
viewed for the district -
one for Suwannee Middle
School; one for Suwannee
Primary; one for Suwan-
nee High; and a joint
,counselor for Suwannee
Elementary and Suwannee
Intermediate schools.
Leann Charlton, minis-
ter at Triumph The Church
and Kingdom of God, said,
"I live in the area where the
dropout rates are the high-
est."
She suggested that more
community groups, espe-
cially churches, should step
up and meet the needs of
children in the neighbor-

School Equivalency Diploma."
She said, "the equivalency diploma
' should not be,confused with the State of
Florida High School Diploma, which is
earned when an adult passes the GED ex-
aminations." However, according to state
statute, the equivalency diploma "shall


have equal status with other high school
diplomas for all state purposes, including
admission to any state university or com-
munity college."
The status of the state's program can
best be summed up in a final statement
from Haithcock. "The GED Exit Option
remains a viable drop-out prevention strat-
egy in Florida," she said.

home invasion, Det. Sgt.
Ron Shaw of the Live Oak
Police Department said
Thursday.
The 16-year-olds were
arrested Aug. 8 on unrelat-
ed charges and are being
held in a juvenile justice
center in Gainesville.
Shaw said the two will be
charged in a home invasion
robbery in the 1100 block
of 2nd Street. The pair al-
legedly held several men at
gunpoint with two hand-
guns and what may have
been an assault rifle at
around 10:25 p.m. as the
victims played cards.
About $350 was taken.
"They have been posi-
tivelyidentified by use of a
photo lineup on the. 2nd
Street invasion," said
Shaw. .
Jerome Cooks, of Ana
Avenue, was arrested Aug.
8 for allegedly robbing a
Hispanic man at gunpoint
earlier that day in front of
the JK Food Mart on
Northeast Ohio Avenue.
Jaron Devonte Webb, of
SW 8th Street, was arrest-


ed shortly after Cooks by
the Suwannee C6t1tty'
Sheriffs Office for carry-
ing a .380 caliber pistol
while walking down John-
son Avenue and 6th Street.
Shaw said Thursday
morning that paperwork to'
have the pair returned from
Gainesville was nearly.
complete. He said two may
be charged as adults.
Shaw said 15-year-old
Tyler Austin Carter was
identified by photo lineup
for allegedly attempting to
invade a home in the Live
Oak Pines mobile home
park June 4 at around
11:50 p.m. According to
Shaw, Carter and three
black males ,entered the.
home, demanded money
and left after receiving
none. The suspects then al-
legedly confronted another
Hispanic male as he.was
walking toward the home
but were chased off by the
man and another person in-
side the home. Shaw said
an independent witness
saw the crime occur and
came forward to identify
Carter.
According to Shaw,

from Florida since 1946
when military personnel
left after World War II.
UF reported 18.8 million
people in Florida in 2008
with 40,927 of those in
Suwannee County. Esti-
mates for 2009 show the
state dropped to 18.7 mil-
lion, with 40,230 in
Suwannee.
The United States Cen-
sus Bureau in its 2008 esti-
mate reported 39,802 resi-
dents in the county. Smith
said the difference is in the
way the data is gathered.
He said UF ises data from
residential electric
hookups, building permits
and, to a lesser extent,
homestead exemption
claims.
"The. (U.S. Census Bu-
reau) uses return addresses
on tax returns, births and
deaths and Medicare data,"
said Smith.
Smith said we should ex-
pect to see this trend for a
while.
"I think growth will be
fairly slow for another year
or so," he said. "It will be
positive but it won't be
very large."
Live Oak's population, at
6,669, is down by 43 resi-
dents, while Branford, at
704, is down eight resi-
dents.

"There has to be a pro-
gram in place to let kids
know that you care about
them," she said.
Said Audrey Howell,
who works with Charlton,
"As a community, all these
children belong to us."
SLynda Owens, a fourth-
grade teacher, said "we as
teachers are going to have
to learn how to teach our
minority children."
She suggested that mi-
nority students, particular-
ly African American stu-
dents, often learn in vari-
ous ways, which is not al-
ways suited to the standard
forms of teachings.
"They have to be taught
in ways that they under-

School days are hei


Monday marks the
first day of classes
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com

No more sleeping in, kids - school starts Monday in
Suwannee County.
This year, students can expect a few new classmates and
a few new faces at the head of the classroom thanks to added
teaching positions that have been filled.
All schools, from Suwannee Primary all the way up to
Suwannee High and Suwannee-Hamilton Technical Center
will welcome new, transferring and returning staff to cam-
pus. That includes Branford Elementary and Branford High.
At Suwannee Primary, teachers will welcome new and re-
turning students to a daily routine of work and play.
"We're, looking forward to all our pre-K, kindergartners,
and first graders," said Principal Melissa Moseley. She and
her staff are especially excited to meet all the new students
and parents.
"We will be meeting and working with all of our parents
and look forward to their input," Moseley said.
She said it is important to get parents on board with their
child's education while their children are young.
"At this age, it is a critical to get parents involved," Mose-
ley said. Students can expect a 90-minute reading block at
the start of each day.
At Suwannee Intermediate School, Principal Bill Yanossy
and his staff have set their sights on student achievement and
progress.
"Everyone is upbeat and very excited and look forward to
a great school year," Yanossy said. "There's been a revamp-
ing."
The school welcomes 11 new teachers, a new guidance

counselor and a new assistant principal, Bethany Mitidieri.
"We were a B school last year and we did not meet AYP,"
Yanossy said, however his hope is to see that change. "Our
goal is to be an A school and meet AYP by the end of this
school year."
At Suwannee Elementary, Principal Donna Long said stu-
dents can expect to return to a "positive" atmosphere.
"There's great spirit here," she said.
Teachers will introduce SUMS (Students Understanding
Math and Science) skills into the classroom. "We feel like
we've learned some math skills that will help our students'
scores come up," Long said.
The goal, she said, is to help all students score above av-
erage on the FCAT and to continue to meet annual yearly
progress.
"We have a very positive attitude that all of our students
will move forward," she said.
"We're hoping all of our children will reach beyond level
1 in reading on the FCAT; we're trying to help as many as
we can get to levels four and five ... by George, we didn't
have a gap this year with our black children," Long said.
"The only area that didn't meet was with our economically
disadvantaged, and we're hoping to change that."
At Suwanriee Middle School and Suwannee High, hard
work is key. Programs such as the School of Success and,
Excel-R-8 have been instated to reduce to county's high
dropout rates.
Middle School Principal Norri Steele wasn't immediately
available for comment, but has been working hard to estab-
lish programs at her campus to encourage student pprfor-
mance.
Dawn Lamb, principal at Suwannee High said she and
staff "are getting started with a lot of enthusiasm.'
She said the buzz on campus has been all about hard
work. "We're just ready to get back and see students come
back so that we can get down to business."


IS YOUR iEHMCLE A


re again
Momentum at the high school has steadily been building
since new head football coach Jerry Odom came on board in
February. Odom told the Democrat that his main goal wasn't
see his players develop into successful adults. Not to men-
tion, he wants to coach a winning team.
"We need to get these kids to further their education," said:
Odom. "That's what part of being a coach at this levels,
about. The kids can always come to me:" '
At Branford Elementary, when students arrive for the first)
day of school they will be greeted by a new principal. ' :
David Campbell said earlier this summer that when his
students return they can expect to be treated like part of theI6
family. .
, "It's like a home. You have to treat them with love and ft-
tention, making them feel wanted and safe," Campbell said,;';
Ted Roush, principal at Branford High, said he "hopes'thel
students come back to school with the attitude of wanting tot-
achieve and continue with their 'A' performance. Teacheri-
are certainly bringing their A-game back, and we're hoping'
that students will follow suit," he said. In addition, Roush-
looks forward to continued parental support. -
Principal Dianne Westcott at Suwannee Hamilton-Techni'-'
cal Center said the school is working to establish a surgical
technologist program, as well as provide digital desigii'
courseslfor high school students. The center reopens with a
few other surprises this year. In addition to its auto-b6dyz:
cosmetology and child-care programs, the famed culinary.
arts program has been restored this year. The food prepara-
tion program, which was sorely missed on campus and had'i
been a huge draw for participation in the past, will be taught'
by instructor Tom Royan. ' "I
Superintendent Jerry Scarborough said he is extreniely
excited aboutthe 2009-10 school year. '
"Teachers have worked hard in organizing and planningg;%
he said. "We're ecstatic in becoming a B school districtnaid
look forward to becoming an A school district. :'.

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Conspiracy?


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels

How smart is the
NFL? This is an
organization whose
franchises are worth in
excess of $32 billion dollars. They
didn't get there by not dotting the i's.
Michael Vick, the most famous
criminal since Willie Sutton, or for
our younger readers John Dillinger, is
signed. This story should, could and
would have lingered if Brett Favre
hadn't come out of retirement. Brett is
back!
The Favre watch is over and #4 will
be wearing purple and gold. Brett has.
retired a lot but he is just a pup in the
false retirement business. Jackie
Jensen retired and came back, Vince
Lombardi retired and came back.
Roger Clemens retired took the
retirement car and came back. Pro
sports has plenty of non-retired
retirees. The sport that most
exemplifies this is boxing: Joe Louis,
Sugar Ray Robinson, Mohammed Ali,
George Foreman, Macho Camacho,
Sugar Ray Leonard, etc. The only one
I really wanted to see unretire was
Rocky Marciano and he didn't. Howie
Long was asked by the Raiders to
unretire and even Frank Gifford
retired for a year and came back. So
did Sammy Sosa, but who cared?
The most famous athletes who
almost unretired would have been
better than those who did. Sandy
Koufax was offered a million deals to
come back but didn't. Jolihn MAdtide
made his mark as a coach and was
forever sought to coach again. Jim
Brown retired much too early and
almost came out of retirement at age
50 to reestablish one of his records.
Barry Sanders left too soon and can't
even be found on the NFL network.
Wilt Chamberlain was coming out of
retirement forever but never did.
Barry Bonds would but nobody wants
him.
I kept waiting for Al Oerter to come
out of retirement. He was the only
Olympian to win the gold in his sport
four times. In 1956, 1960, 1964 and
1968 he won gold in the shot put. He
almost made it back for 1972. Favre
is the stuff of legends. Get it right and
don't let the Cheeseheads bite.


Pop Warner recently began practice with about 200 kids in attendance.


FWC invites public comments on endangered

and threatened species listing changes


The Florida Fish and Wildlife'
Conservation Commission
(FWC) will hold a meeting for
the public to comment on draft
rules for the state's imperiled
species listing process.
The public meeting will be
held on Aug. 24 at 6 p.m. at the
FWC's Fish and Wildlife Re-
search Institute in St. Petersburg,
with video-conferencing avail-
able from regional offices in
Panama City, Lake City, Ocala,
Lakeland and West Palm Beach
and from the FWC's headquar-
ters in the Bryant Building in
Tallahassee.
The FWC strives to provide
conservation for Florida's imper-
iled species. Achieving this goal
requires using a comprehensive
management system, including a
listing process that requires a
written conservation plan for all
listed species.
As a result, a team of FWC


staff has been working on draft
rules to achieve this goal as well
as identifyspecies that need state
intervention for survival. The
draft rules link species protection
to science, while using a bal-
anced approach through collabo-
ration and partnerships.
At the meeting, the public will
have the opportunity to provide
input on the draft rules and learn
more about the FWC's proposed
management of endangered and
threatened species.
The draft rules are available
for reviewing and comment at

Fish kills common during summer, but need reporting


The recent rains and cloudy skies are causing problems
along the Withlacoochee River and in lakes around Citrus
and Sumter counties.
Residents are reporting fish kills in various areas, and
fisheries biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) think the number and severity
of fish kills could increase over the next several weeks.
"We've already had reports of fish kills in the Inverness
and Floral City areas as well as various locations on the
Withlacoochee River. These kills are a result of low dis-
solved oxygen (DO) levels," said Allen Martin, regional
fisheries biologist for the FWC's Division of Freshwater
Fisheries Management in Lake City. "And it could get

worse in the coming weeks if we get tropical storm or hurri-
cane activity."
What do heavy rains and cloudy skies have to do with
fish suffocating from a lack of oxygen?
Ironically, a lack of sunshine in the Sunshine State heralds
the beginning of problems. The process starts with overcast
skies, hot summer days and rainy weather.
Photosynthesis creates most of the oxygen that fish
breathe. The process allows waterbore microscopic plants
to use sunlight to produce and add dissolved oxygen to the
water. However, when overcast skies persist for several
days, there is often not enough sunlight to power the oxy-
gen-making process that supports fish life.
Heavy rain and wind from thunderstorms add to the prob-
lem by stirring up bottom sediments that mix with good-
quality water near the surface, compounding the problem.
Rainwater runoff can also wash large amounts of decaying
plant and animal material into the water body. In the decay
process, bacteria use dissolved oxygen in the water to break
down plant and animal matter, further lowering oxygen lev-
els.
"We are seeing this occur in the Green Swamp area,"
Martin said. "The rains are releasing a pulse of poor-quality
(low DO) water into the Withlacoochee River that is then
flowing into the Tsala Apopka chain of lakes."
Fish can often be seen coming to the surface of the water
and gulping air. Ultimately, the fish die and float to the sur-
face.
"The size of the fish kills depends on how low the oxygen
levels are. They can range from only a few individuals be-
ing affected to massive kills, where thousands of fish die."

Many different species of fish have succumbed to current
fish kills, including largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie
and catfish.
The good news is that most water bodies do not suffer re-
peat performances every year. In fact, most.water bodies go
years without suffering a major fish kill. Fish populations
usually replenish themselves naturally from surviving fish.
"In spite of summer fish kills, most Florida lakes are in
relatively healthy shape, and fish populations remain stable.
Angling success generally is not affected over the long haul,
even after events that might appear serious to the untrained
eye," said Martin. ....
Still, it is important for biologists like Martin to keep
track of the location and extent of fish kills in natural lakes
and estuaries to see if there are serious problems developing
in an ecosystem that might require investigation or restora-
tive measures.
Floridians can report fish kills in natural water bodies to
the FWC's Fish Kill Hotline at 800-636-0511, the FWC's
Lake City office at 386-758-0525 or online at
MyFWC.com/Contact It is not necessary to report fish kills
in man-made retention or private ponds.

How To Be A Christian Gentleman


The idea of being a "Christian gentleman" is perhaps redundant.
After all, are not Christians called to be gentle and forbearing, and
to act with moral propriety, and are not. these the defining
characteristics of a gentleman? The American Heritage Dictionary
defines gentleman as "a
well-mannered and considerate man
with high standards of proper
behavior." But, the image we
sometimes have of a gentleman is
that of a slightly effete snob who is
overly concerned with protocol and
etiquette, perhaps even to the point
of being obnoxious. In reality, the
gentleman is someone who, while
holding himself to high standards of
polite and considerate behavior, is
A A forgiving of those who do not
themselves have such high standards,
whether because of ignorance on their part or just lack of
"refinement." The gentleman should be first and foremost a gentle
man. And, this entails forbearance over those whom one may have
power, whether these are subordinate employees, those who are less
educated, or the socially or materially disadvantaged. Therefore,
the real essence of the gentleman is more accurately a heartfelt
concern and consideration for the feelings of others. So, if we make
every effort to be a gentleman, we should find that in addition, we
are trying to be a good Christian.

Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness,
lowliness, meekness, and patience, forbearing one another and,,:if one has a.
., ( nilpltni against .-nother,.forgivfng each other; as the Lord. hasfbrgiven ybu,
so alsimust fprgve .. / ,,.

Hurting and healing Back to school
rally at Live Oak
......g afl ,,.,,an ,1. - ^ .-

One day can
change your life

By Rev. Jim Messer
Are you hurting? Are you in pain? Could you use some
,healing?
S The last Sunday of August 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, Jesus Christ. . ,,
Much healing occurred during the ministry,of Jesus.
A woman was completely healed after she, had touched
the hem of his garment. Jesus healed a man who had sat


next to a healing pool for 30 years.
1f 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 surgeons
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 heal-
ing walk together?

Jim Messer is the pastor of Wellborn United Methodist
Church. The church is located at 12005 CR 137 in Well-
born. You can contact Messer at JMe944.2975 @aol. coin

SGood Food, hometown folks


Sit down to an apple pie supper f
in an Amish settlement. A Friday a
fish fry down by the river. A corn a
roast in a farm community. A bake C
sale along a blue highway. Food p
events found at churches are one of g
travel's great folk discoveries ac- r
cording to Janet Groene, researcher a
at www.churchsupper.blogspot.com.
"This isn't about religion unless v
you want it to be," said Groene. fi
"It's about connecting with salt-of- v
the-earth people working together fi
in a community project. From the c
traveler's standpoint it's simply a 1
lot of food for the money, with
warm fellowship thrown in free. e
"When I leave one of these v
events I feel more connected to the
region, its people and its favorite l

Iso an ethnic connection too, such
s wonderful baklava at a Greek
orthodoxx church, a spaghetti sup-
per in an Italian Catholics congre-
;atiop, or pancakes with lingonber-"
ies served up by Swedish Luther-
ns."
Groene, a professional travel-
iriter, founded the Web site to of-
er free listings for church suppers
worldwide, and to share recipes for
ood events ranging from a dozen
cookies for a bake sale to feeding
25 at a time.
She admits it's difficult for tray-

ertised events.

weekly as an outreach, often free or

there is a set price for a fund raiser,
such as a $5 hot dog lunch put on

go to camp.
"Often these suppers, church fairs
and bake sales are the highlight of
an entire community's social calen-

menian Church Food Festival held
yearly in Richmond, Va."

NATIONAL MAKE-A-WILL MONTH
In case you own properties and assets, the best time-tested and legally sound practice is to make a will so as to ensure that in the event of your
death, your properties get distributed to your near and dear ones according to your likes and preferences. A legally valid will can ensure that your
heirs and dependents need not unnecessarily fight for their share of your properties in court after, your death.
By making a will, you can allocate your assets to your dear ones in proportion to their needs. For example, if you have a physically
handicapped son, you will be able to earmark a much higher share of your properties to him compared to another son, who is hale and healthy,
well educated and well settled in life. This would not be possible in the absence of a will, as all the sons, as per law, will have the right to claim
equal shares to your property after your death.
In case of a complex family structure (more than one marriage, le children born out of multiple wedlock, a disloyal wife eloping with
another man, ditching her husband without a legal divorce, etc.), n for a will becomes all the more important. In the absence of a will,
some of the related persons can always legally stake their claims for the4h are of the property after the death of the person.
In case you are to leave behind minor children, and assuming. surviving parent after your death, relatives with vested interest
might want to take the responsibility of being the gardians of the hil for the sheer~urpose of enjoying your wealth and leave the children
in the lurch. By making a will,.y Fwathe who should be al guardian. .-- ,
Suppose you %want tio'ieay your indebtedness to your friend who he ou financially without any expectations-Afr.m you when you started
your own business. S Ipjs ~ou want to donate a piece of land to a ch ty. By making provisions for these in your \(vi, you will able to make
sure that your wishe4itre$ lf.l d without heartburn to your heirs.
Assuming that yoti have kepit.ertain properties and investments intentionally hidden from family members, .Nou can b1ng them to light and
appropriately distibute tem thrlogh your will.
What are the reuiremets of a4 : '?
1. You must have crossed 18 ye of age: This is a basic condition a licable to the majority of counties and most of theltates in the U.S.
There may be sbme permrrsible devi ,ons here and there in some U.S. s. . t
2. You must be mentallyl competent- i.e. you are quite aware of the p ose of making the will, thee tent and details of your properties and
the nature of'your relati ship/associaIn with the persons to whom y e leaving behind your properties. The.'itnesses signing your will
have to stand testimony f, your soundns of mental health in the even ~any dispute in the future,-?f you foreseeiany problem of somebody
questioning your mental Pmpetence, it mi be better to get a Doctor's cate confirming your sp ndness of mental health and attach it with
the will . .
3. The will must be isvritten form and ned: It is essen is written (or typil/word-processed) and signed by you in the
presence of 2 witnesses. you are unletered, our left hand th mp (off an ink pad) . ist be placed (this is applicable to places and
countries where illiteracy is still prevalent). In t.'e worst case s rio-whe ning is not possible (like a physical disability), then a signatory.

will not:Jega :ablee in the ev disputee in the future. Video ding of the wiead out from the written document may
be helpfiasi . upportive. . .but not as an orin ..Li some states, vid1W. not be acceptable as evidence at all.
4. Provie-r nfo" formatij ill should carry your n address, marital status ccupation.
5. Revoke itd In case Revised Will, state that this is test will that revokes any wiHll'written earlier.
6. List out pro p~ the'ution: State clearly about your mo le and immovable properties giving necessary identification of each
property, its location, cu ent Number, etc. Earmark clearly as to whi 's given, bequeathed, gifted to or shared with which persons and in
what quantities and proportions.
7. Specify guardians: In case there are minor children, clearly state thdians and the extent of their rights to the usage of the properties
of the minors.
8. Specify executors: In case the will is to be exedcutea uTlIerTietiuPer'Fn o executors and trustees, provide their names and Other
particulars.
9. State your wishes: In case you want to leave some instructions about your funeral/way of disposal of your body, state them clearly. In case
you have disinherited a son who should not make a claim to your properties, state the reasons for your action. (Caution: Such acts may still come
under the scrutiny of law, in case of a dispute).
10. 2 witnesses should sign: The will must be signed by you in the presence of 2 witnesses, who should be willing to give legal testimony to
your having signed the will with mental competence. They are again expected to sign the will in your and the other witness' presence. Their
names and addresses must be clearly available in the will. (IMPORTANT: The witnesses should not be part of beneficiaries in the will)
Use the service of a lawyer (though it is not a must) if you feel the issues are complicated and it is better to avoid possible legal complications
in future.

Beware of 'smooth talkers'


"...Because you de-
serve it!" How many
times does that message
come across through
countless advertisements
and TV
commercials...every prod-
uct and service promising
something you cannot or
at least should not want to
be without. I wonder how
often we have been con-
vinced to buy something
that did not deliver what
was promised...because
we deserved it!


Hear

Matt
By Angie


According to Romans 16:17-18,
the Bible says that people who are
serving their own appetites use
"smooth talk and flattery to de-
ceive the minds of naive people."
Proverbs 29:5 also warns "whoev-
er flatters his neighbor is spread-
ing a net for his feet." It seems
that a wise man will be more
guarded in the face of flattery than
an honest reprimand...at least you
know where you stand.
William Penn, founder of the
Pennsylvania colony, was once
quoted: "Avoid flatterers, for they
are thieves in disguise." How
about that-and he didn't even have
television! In relation to false ad-


1' vertisement, it is easy to
Make the connection with
'r flatterers and thieves. In re-
lationships, however, we
. T might not always see the
I correlation as clearly...
, By definition, flattery is
.'R "excessive praise from mo-
tives of self-interest." Thus
, it is the motives and not
the praise that is the
ers problem. In healthy rela-
s tionships, our motives
SLand should always be for the
good of the other person.
Honest compliments are
always welcome, but deceptive
flattery truly is a net for our feet
and a thief in disguise. Why is this
so? 1) Since the motive for flattery
is self-interept. it lays a trap to ma-
nipulate behavior from which the
flatterer will,benefit. If a simple
request yould be rejected, flattery
become the toolthat serves to de-
ceive and control. 2) Flattery is
dangerous t9 the recipient when it
is received, (we might say "swal-
lowed hook, li�e tand sinker") and
results with pride and conceit
causing the person ~o, act foolishly.
It is worth mentioning that we
are all susceptible to flattery be-
cause it is human nature to enjoy


Friends day

Live Oak Christian Church would like to invite
everyone to come to our Annual Friends Day on Sun-
day, Aug. 23. Dr. W. Ray Kelley, pastor, will bring a
special message on Friends from the Parables on Jesus.
A pot-luck dinner will follow the family worship and
praise service. The church is located at 1015 North
Ohio Avenue in Live Oak. Visit the Web site at

hearing good things about our-
selves, especially the opinion of
others. Interestingly, the original
Hebrew word for flattery translates
"smooth," (hence the caution for a
"smooth-talker") and gives us
warning when praise is too easy to
swallow. Wisdom and discernment
dictate that we learn to recognize
when praise is being "laid on a lit-
tle thick." We must also consider
the source. Ask yourself, "Would
this same person tell me the truth
if it were hard to hear?" If the an-
swer is yes, enjoy the comple-
ment...if no, beware of the net
around your feet... because your
heart matters!

Blessings,

Angie

And the heat goes on...


By Rev. James L. Snyder

T his past week found nie in a bit of trouble
With the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage...
well, more than normal. It has become rather
normal for me to be in trouble with her. No
matter how hard I try "not to be," it always is
"to be."
This week was a high point for me getting
into trouble. I never relish getting into a pick-
le with her, but sometimes it is unavoidable.
All week long, I had been murmuring and
complaining about how hot it was. "I've never
seen such hot weather," I grumbled. "I don't
know how long I can take this hot weather."
You would think that someone my age
would have learned long ago that some things
should not be vocalized. This is America, and
we all have the right to speak our mind al-
though much of the time we should not speak
our mind aloud; at least, not to the point that
someone, especially someone living under the
same roof, can hear you. I have found that the
thing that enhances romance is the sounds of
silence.
I guess it was getting a little wearisome
with all my complaining, but after all, the
weather was really hot.
Then, she looked at me and said, "If I hear
you complain about the weather one more
time, I'm... I'm... I'm..." The look on her face
indicated that she was not at a loss for words;
she was just trying to control herself and save
herself from early widowhood.
I truly respect people who have the ability
to control themselves, especially the'pebple
who live under our roof. *".
I almost said something, but for some rea-
son I had a flash of temporary sanity. I said
nothing, but smiled. I am not boasting here,
but I am really good at saying nothing. Even
when talking, my wife tells me I am saying
nothing.
Saying nothing has'gotten me out of many a
jam, particularly with my wife. There are
times when husbands and wives should sit
down and have a rather invigorating conversa-
tion. Then there are times when the husband
should shut up. I never know which time is
which.
It was then that my wife laid out the facts
for me to evaluate. How she can remember
everything is simply beyond me. However,
how do I know she is actually remembering
things as they were and not making them up?
It seems, according to her impeccable recol-
lection, that a few months ago I was com-
plaining about how cold it was and anxious
for the hot weather to come. "You were just
as grumpy about how cold it was as you are
now about how hot it is."
Then she put her hands on her hip and
looked at me with "that look," and said, "I
don't mind you complaining about one or the
other but I really do mind you complaining
about everything. You're going to have to
make up your mind whether you hate the cold


and on...

or the ',
heat, and
then stick
to it."
Thatput a new light on the situation, and a
new burden on me. Now, according to her lat-
est admonition, I need to choose the heat or
the cold. I am tempted, although I know bet-
ter, to complain about this. I do not think it is
fair that I have to choose one or the other. I
think I should be able to hate both the cold
and the heat.
However, here is the problem. If I choose to
complain about the heat, then what do I do in
the wintertime when it gets cold? Faced with
a real dilemma I took it to my good wife and
asked, "Can I hate the heat in the summer and
hate the cold in the winter, if I alternate it
every other year?" To me this sounded like a
very reasonable request. After all, I was ac-
commodating her request and getting in my
share of complaining.
"If you would spend as much time thinking
of positive things to say as you do complain-
ing it would be absolutely wonderful."
But how can you think of something posi-
tive about the heat when you are sweltering?
And, how can you think about something pos-
itive a bout the cold when your bones are'
shivering to death? Mistakenly I told my wife
my dilemma.
"I think I have you figured out," she said.
"You're positively negative about every-
thing."
There is only one thing worse than having
your wife figure you out. There must be, but I
cannot think of any thing right now.'
I will not say my wife is right, only that she
is not wrong. I must say I have a tendency to
complain about everything. Some people can
see the silver lining in every cloud whereas I
see a cloud over every silver lining. I guess it
is a person's perspective.
Thinking along this line, I remembered a
verse in the Bible. "Finally, brethren, whatso-
ever things are true, whatsoever things are
honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever
things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report; if there
be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think
on these things" (Philippians 4:8 KJV ).
Some people (like me) see a glass as half
empty while others see it as half-full. There
are those few souls (like my wife) who are
thankful that there is any water in the glass at
all.

When the good


keeps us from


the best

By Derek Maul

At the time of the banquet he sent his
servant to tell those who had been invit-
ed, "Come, for everything is now ready."
(Luke 14:17)
Coming off a great Sunday, it's always useful to reflect
on what difference - if any - participating in church
makes to every-day reality. In fact it's the question that
drives the content and discussion in my Adult Sunday-
school class, "Practical Christianity."
However, rather than focus on Sunday-school, I'm go-
ing to steal from my wife's sermon for today's column.
I've probably said this before, but my wife is hands-
down the most consistently interesting, engaging, articu-
late, fun to listen to preacher I've ever heard. Not only
that but she packs in a dynamite message at the same
time.
This Sunday she talked about the Great Banquet, that
parable in Luke 14 where Jesus tells a story about the in-
vitation to show up and enjoy the best party ever. Good
stories; spot-on illustrations; passion; enthusiasm - the
usual.,B t then she made the following statement (I'm
paraphrasing from memory).
"Each excuse people used for missing the banquet
turned out to be good. If I'd been the host I'd have ac-
cepted them as reasonable reasons to skipping the party.
,They weren't.bad excuses at all - and that's the real point
'of this message. We often allow ourselves to let what is
good keep us from experiencing the best. Sometimes the
good can be the enemy of the best. It's way too easy to
settle...."
Brilliant! I can't help but think about our day-to-day
between Sundays. We have things easy here in North
America, and the "pursuit of happiness" has pretty much
taken over from life and liberty as the primary emphasis
.,we t~6 'from our Declaration of Independence. I don't
know about the rest of you, but I like to be comfortable; I
like to be surrounded by stuff that makes my life easier; I
like my world to be predictable and easy to manage.
So now I'm thinking about how.much of the "good" in
my life effectively keeps me from engaging God's best.
Yeah, Sunday does have that tendency to intrude on the
rest of our lives. But, only with our permission.

Love and Blessings

Apply for

special-opportunity

spring turkey hunts

Sept. 8 - Oct. 13

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) will
begin accepting 2010 special-oppor-
tunity spring turkey hunt applications
at 10 a.m. (EDT) Sept. 8. The dead-
line for submitting applications is
midnight (EDT) Oct. 13.
Applications may be submitted at
www.wildlifelicense.com, county tax
collectors' offices or at any license
agent. A random drawing decides
who will receive the coveted permits.
To apply, hunters can obtain applica-
tion worksheets at
MyFWC.com/Hunting under "Limit-
ed Entry Hunts."
Demand for these hunts is typically
greater than the number of available
permits, but hunters can increase their
chances of being selected by submit-
ting as many $5 nonrefundable appli-
cations as they like. Successful appli-
cants pay a permit fee of $50 - $175,
depending on the special-opportunity
hunt area selected.
Participation rules limit out-of-state
hunters to one permit per hunt.
The FWC created special-opportu-
nity spring turkey hunts for sports-
men looking to take an Osceola, the
"crown jewel" of the turkey hunter's
Grand Slam. The FWC designs spe-
cial-opportunity turkey hunts to take
place on large tracts of land, with
great habitat, healthy turkey popula-
tions and a limited number of
hunters.
The Osceola is a highly prized sub-
species of wild turkey, found only in
peninsular Florida, south of and in-
cluding Dixie, Gilchrist, Alachua,
Union, Bradford, Clay and Duval
counties. All hunts take place within
the Osceola turkey's home range.
For more information on special-
opportunity Osceola turkey hunts, vis-
it MyFWC.com/Hunting.
