 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.

BUSINESS


'Clunkers' put 50-plus new

vehicles on the road locally


But used car dealers
not all that pleased
By Jeff Waters
leff.waters@ggiflnews.com
More than 50 new vehicles
were purchased from area auto


dealers through the govern-
ment's "Cash for Clunkers" pro-
gram, which ended Monday.
But 'While new car dealers are
pleased with the boost in sales,
some used car dealers felt they
were given the shaft.
Manager Jason Little said
sales have declined at Economy
Motors in Live Oak since the
program began. He said since
the program was only valdi to-
ward the purchase of a new car,
he's lost customers.
"It took our customer base,"
said Little. "It took lot of the
lower end vehicles off the road
that would have been good
trade-ins:."
Roger Graham of Graham's
Auto said his used car lot sees
roughly the same amount of


traffic, but has less inventory to
sell due to the program. Graham
buys most of his vehicles at auc-
tions, but said there aren't as
many to choose from because
cars being traded in as clunkers
are sent to scrap yards as part of
the program.
"It has cut the number of ve-
hicles sold at auction in half,"
said Graham. "There are the
same amount of people going to
the auctions, but with fewer ve-
hicles, the prices go higher."
"Cash for Clunkers" was part
of President Obama's stimulus
plan. The program, which ended
Monday night, offered car buy-
ers up to $4,500 to trade in old
gas-guzzlers for new ones that

Muscadine grapes are quite
drought tolerant. Water
during dry periods the first
two years, then the vines
can usually obtain adequate
water from the soil even
during dry periods. Most
vines can be grown
successfully without
insecticides or fungicides.


Muscadines:


The grape


of the South
By Lucille Bobiney Heinrich
Muscadines grow especially well in North
Florida and are known as "the grape of the
South." Reportedly, the first variety of the
muscadine was the Scuppernong vine found
in North Carolina by Sir Walter Raleigh's
colony in 1554. The name muscadine
usually refers to the purple varieties of the
grape, but it technically includes all
varieties. These grapes ripen in late August
and can be found wild in wooded areas, or
there are a number of pick-your-own
muscadine farms scattered throughout our
area. In addition to making jelly, there are
many ways muscadines can be used, but the
best way is to eat them fresh off the vine.
Recent scientific analysis has revealed that.
muscadine grapes contain the highest levels
of antioxidants of any other fruit tested.
If you have a nice sunny, well-drained
location on your property, you. may want to
plant and produce your own fruit.
Muscadine grapes are quite drought
tolerant. Water during dry periods the first
two years, then the vines can usually obtain
adequate water from the soil even during
dry periods. Most vines can be grown
successfully without insecticides or
fungicides.
Muscadine vines are available as bare-
root or container-grown plants. Container-
grown plants are generally hardier and
easier to use, can be planted at any time,
and are preferred for home gardens. At
planting, prune the vines to a single
vigorous stem, one to one and one-half feet
in length with a root spread of about one
foot. The hole should be large enough to
spread the roots without crowding. Fill
loose soil around the roots and pack firmly
as the hole is being filled to ensure good
soil-root contact. Water each vine after it is
planted
Twelve feet of spacing is recommended
between each vine. Erect trellises before or
soon after planting. Trellises provide
protection and encourage rapid
establishment of the permanent vine
framework. The one-wire trellis is the
recommended trellis system for muscadine
production in the home garden. Vines may
be pruned at any time during the dormant
season.
Young plants should receive a complete
fertilizer, such as 12-12-12 or some other
commonly available mixture, in early spring

Live Oak native Malcolm Hines
earned the Army's highest
enlisted rank. Now he's looking
for a new challenge - as a teacher
By Jessica Maxwell
FORSCOM Public Affairs

FORT MCPHERSON, Ga. - After 26 years in the
Army, Sergeant Major Malcolm Hines of Live Oak retired
Friday.
Beginning his active duty service at Fort McClellan,
Ala., Hines decided to make a career in the Army, a result,
of looking up to his brother as a role model.
"I wanted to do whatever he did," said Hines. "He
joined the Army, so I Wanted tojoin the Army."
Since 2006, Hines has worked at U.S. Army Forces
Command (FORSCOM) as the Provost Sergeant Major.
(FORSCOM is the largest Army command, with
approximately 832,000 Soldiers falling'under the
command.)
In addition to FORSCOM, Hines has been stationed in
Berlin, Texas (Fort Bliss), the Pentagon, Germany,
Missouri (Fort Leonard Wood) and Korea.
Hines received several awards during his career,
including the Legion of Merit, Joint Service
Commendation Medal and the National Defense Service
Medal. In addition to being a decorated soldier, Hines
completed his Bachelor of Science in Sociology from
Drury University in Springfield, Mo., and received a
Master' of Arts in American history.
Thinking back over his career, Hines said he has
learned many important life lessons; however, one sticks
out the most, a lesson he learned as a drill sergeant:
"Always take care of those you supervise," said Hines.
"If you take care of your soldiers, they will love you for
it. Everyone needs to feel important."
Although retiring from the Army, Hines will hardly be
leading an inactive life, choosing instead to teach at
Suwannee High.
He continued by saying teaching is something he's
always considered doing and he believes in being
supportive of students.
"If no one is there to support and teach them, what kind
of a chance do they have,"'said Hines.
Much as he did during his career in the Army, Hines
will continue mentoring, giving young people a chance to
excel and he says he is very much looking forward to the
opportunity.

Lee Peters of the Third Judicial Circuit Public Defender's office
has been'selected to receive the 2009 Craig Stewart Barnard Award
for distinguished service by the Florida Public Defenders
Association, after being nominated by Third Circuit Public Defender
C. Dennis Roberts.
The award is named after Craig Stewart Barnard, who served as

until 1989, when he died at age 39. Barnard is viewed as "Florida's
Dean of the death penalty law" and wrote many articles and appeals
in support of death penalty defense issues. His view on the issue was
"the purpose of capital sentencing is to select the few who must die
from the many who will not."
"I am very humbled and honored to be selected from .
approximately 1,500 assistant public defenders in Florida, to receive
this award," said Peters.

Clothes dryer and washing machine safety


THE SAFETY .E
From Suwannee %ntadv Fire/Rescue

By Paul M. Haas
Suwannee County Fire Marshal

Dryers and washing machines were, involved in one out
of every 23 home structure fires reported to U.S. fire
departments in 2003-2006.
Clothes dryers accounted for 92 percent of the fires;
washing machines 4 percent, and washer and dryer
combinations accounted for 3 percent.
The leading cause of home clothes dryer and washer
fires was failure to clean (29 ,percent), followed by
unclassified mechanical failure or'malfunction (24,
percent). Thirteen percent were caused by some,type of
electrical failure or short circuit.
In 2006, an estimated 17,700 reported U.S. non-
confined or confined home structure fires involving
clothes dryers or washing machines (including
combination washer/dryers) resulted in an estimated:
* 15 civilian deaths
* 360 civilian injuries " '
* $194 million in direct property damage


- . I'"
^ ' ~~ I 1 8 '\ ''


Items first ignited in non-confined fires involving
clothes washer or clothes dryer, 2003-2006:
Clothing, 30 percent; wire or cable insulation, 29
percent; dust, fiber, or lint 27 percent; appliance housing
or casing, 21 percent; unclassified soft goods or clothing,
10 percent; drive or other belt, 18 percent.
* Most (81 percent) non-confined home structure fires
involving washers or dryers began in a laundry room or
area.
* Most of these home fires involve clothes dryers (92
percent in 2003-2006).
* The risk of fire is slightly higher for gas-fueled
clothes dryers than for electric-powered clothes dryers.
* The leading cause (29 percent) of home clothes dryer
and washer fires was failure to clean.

Safety tips
* Have your dryer installed and serviced by a
professional.
* Do not operate the dryer without a lint filter. Clean the
lint filter before or after each use. Remove accumulated
lint around the drum.
* Rigid or flexible metal venting material should be
used to sustain proper air flow and drying time.
* Make sure the air exhaust vent pipe is not restricted
and the outdoor vent flap will open when the dryer is
operating. Once a year, or more often if you.notice that it
is taking longer than normal for your clothes to dry, clean
lint out of the vent pipe or have a dryer lint removal

service do it for you.
-* Keep dryers in good working order. Gas dryers should
be inspected by a professional to ensure that the gas line
and connection are intact and free of leaks.
* Make sure the right plug and outlet are used and that
the machine is connected properly.
* Avoid overloading a washing machine or dryer.
Follow the manufacturer's operating instructions.
* Do not leave a dryer running if you leave home or
when you go to bed.
* Washing machines and dryers should be'properly
grounded.
* Make sure the outdoor vent flap is not obstructed or
blocked.
* Never dry items that have come in contact with
flammable substances, such as cooking oil, gasoline, paint
thinner, alcohol.
* Keep the dryer area clear of things that can burn, such
as boxes or clothing.

Hot



weather?



I've had



enough'
By Jim Holmes
They say the longest day of the year is June
21. It's something about the earth being tilted
Nearest the sun on that date.
Scientifically. I'm sure they are right, but don't
expect most long time Suwannee Valley resi-
dents to agree.
For us, the longest day of the year always
comes in late August.
It's that day when we have finally had enough
of blistering hot, muggy summer days without a
hint of a breeze. Heck, even if we get an after-
noon shower, it seems hotter and more humid
when the clouds disappear.
For me, the breaking point came yesterday.
When was yours?
It wasn't that our weather was that much dif-
ferent from any other day we've had this month.
It was just that I had finally had enough.
Yes, today's air conditioning makes it much
more bearable than it was years ago. (I can re-
member as a boy, waking up with my sheets
drenched in sweat and walking outside where I'd
try to finish my night's sleep on the porch swing,
just in the hope of catching a light breeze. Of
course the amount of sleep I got depended on
how many mosquitoes I'd have to swat.)
The problem with air conditioning is that it
makes the heat and humidity seem even worse
when you finally go outside. As for remaining
inside, well if you are like me -- someone who
really enjoys the out-of-doors -- it's not long be-
fore you start to experience cabin fever, which is
no fun either.
And as if the heat isn't enough, well it is also
near the peak of the hurricane season ... meaning
you're always watching what's going on in the
tropics with crossed fingers.
I have, however, found one new way to cope
with the August heat .. thanks to the Weather
Channel. It now has service that allows you to
quickly see on your television the weather in any
city.
And so this summer, I believe I have become
the Suwannee Valley's expert on the weather in
the city of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. I've nev-
er been there --except via Google Earth -- and I
don't know what would ever take me there.
But this month, I know their weather. For
while it may be 96 degrees here in Live Oak, the
highest temperature forecast for the entire week
in that north Michigan town is just 70 degrees.
Ahhhhh! Some relief ... at least in my mind!
I'll bet if anyone from Sault Ste. Marie reads
this, they will think this old Florida Coot needs
psychological help.
I'm not.disagreeing.
I'm just telling you, those Michigan folks
haven't spent a long, hot summer in Live Oak.

LETTER TO
To the Editor:

I think it is great what took place locally here in Suvan-
nee County, people being heard and getting involved,
about important matters like health care. Even at the local
level, what people want is their government done correct-
ly or done the right way. Not something thrown together,
that hasn't been reviewed time and time again, to make
sure that it is the best that the people deserve. For too long
we have sat on the sidelines too worried about sports, rock
stars and actors, when we should have been paying atten-
tion to our government officials and what they were doing.
We as citizens need to.attend out local city and county
commission meeting and find out what our representatives
stand for and how thpy are running our local government.
If you don't get involved then I guess you get what ever
happens. We as a community are not immune from prob-
lems, but I think together listening to the people we can
solve them and run a better county. After all there are elec-
tion coming November 10, 2010. And there are 2 seats
available. Maybe I'll put up or shut.up and run.

To the Editor:

As Congress continues to address climate change, we're
starting to hear a wide range of estimates on what the ac-
tions of lawmakers will cost American consumers.
The Congressional Budget Office, a non-partisan arm of
Congress that prepares fiscal estimates and budgets,
claims the increase in energy costs will be about the same
as a postage stamp a day for the average homeowner. Oth-
er estimates are much higher - which makes me worry.
I don't know about you, but when the U.S. Postal Ser-
vice released its Forever stamps, I breathed a sigh of re-


THE EDITOR
lief. A Forever stamp guarantees I can buy a stamp today
and not worry about adding extra postage when mailing
rates rise, as they continue to do. I'd like to have a simi-
lar cost guarantee for any climate change goals Congress
considers.
Don't get me wrong - I don't want electricity bills going
up at all, even if the cost is equivalent to a stamp a day. At
Suwannee Valley Electric Cooperative, we're committed
to keeping your rates as low and affordable as possible.
But if Congress believes climate change legislation won't
increase your rates by more than a postage stamp a day,
they should put measures' into place to protect that
promise.
If the U.S. Senate approves a cap-and-trade system as
part of a climate change bill - something the U.S. House
did this summer - we need to make sure there's a cap on
the bill itself, a limit to how much electricity prices can
rise. We need our own version of a Forever stamp for cap-
and-trade costs-a guarantee from Congress that electricity
prices won't rise beyond the reach of the average Ameri-
can household.
.How can we do this? Policy experts say there's a tool to
fix this potential problem - an economic safety valve. A
safety valve would keep prices from rising above the lev-
el Congress expects, effectively promising consumers ac-
cess to affordable power in the future.
Congress believes climate change legislation will cost
you a stamp a day. But we can't just sit back and see if
those estimates pan out. Access to affordable electricity is
critical for all of us. If an economic safety valve helps
keep electric bills affordable for consumers, Congress
should adopt it. Join the Our Energy, Our Future grass-
roots awareness campaign at www.ourenergy.coop and
tell Congress to put a cap on cap-and-trade.

Art ,with a heart


Vaster Fryar never dreamed she would one day teach art,

but from the start, she knew she wanted to teach

Fryar went to the high school
and ask if she could start an
art class. Fryar was told the .
school could not afford it,
but that didn't stop her. She
convinced school officials to

"There is no pain, you are receding." These lyrics to
Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb" stand out in a student's
painting on one of the supply cabinet doors in Vaster Fr-
yar's art room. In Fryar's class, whether pain, fear, happi- - .
ness or sadness, all emotions are free to be expressed. The
popular, the loner, the cheerleader, the misunderstood, all ...
find a similar refuge. Because when students come to-
gether over a few bottles of paint and a canvas, they real-
ize we're all really not that different.
"I don't consider myself a gifted artist," said Fryar just
after dismissing her afternoon class. Fryar says art never
came easily to her. "For some students, it cbmes naturally.
They instinctively know how to do shading or work with Fryar, Rachel McKenzie (left) and Cayla Derringer.
clay," she said. "It didn't come naturally to me. I had to
learn all the techniques and skills. I think that's why it's
easy for me to teach." .. . '' -'
Early in life, Fryar never dreamed she would one day
teach art, but from the start, she knew she wanted to teach. " - -
"I always knew I would become a teacher," said Fryar. I
She received her AA in 1974 just before marrying George
E. Fryar. "He tells everybody I asked him out first," said
Fryer. George had plans to attend seminary and become a
pastor., Fryar gave up her dream of teaching to follow her
husband to seminary in South Carolina. They later had
two daughters, Valarie, now 25, and Laura Leigh, who "I
died as an infant. "I always feel like I have to mention
her," said Fryar.
George eventually took a position at O'Brien Baptist
Church, where he celebrated 20 years as pastor in June.
Vaster Fryar working as a substitute teacher in South Car- ,
olina and continued substituting in Branford. At age 40,
20 years after receiving her AA, she decided to go back to T4 -
school. At 42, she received her BS in Elementary Educa-
tion from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University .
in Tallahassee, and began teaching fourth grade at Bran-
ford Elementary.
In 2001, the elementary school received a grant for an
art class, but no one applied for the job. Her colleagues
encouraged her to apply.

One of Fryar's students, diagnosed with cerebral palsy, was able-to reproduce Van Gogh's
Sunflowers beautifully -- using only his thumb. With a thick compound of paint and by
following an outline, he was able to create the same effect as Van Gogh.

Art with a heart
Continued From Page 7A

"I had always been crafty and incorpo-
rated art into my science and language arts
classes," said Fryar, as she brushed back
her gray hair and folded her hands on the
art desk in front of her.
When the grant ended in 2004, she went
to the high school and ask if she could start
an art class. Fryar was told the school
could not afford it, but that didn't stop her.
She convinced school officials tO offer the
class if she could raise all the money for
supplies herself. And that's exactly what
Fryar has done each year since then
through a summer art camp she hosts and
sponsors. At $60 a child, around 50 kids
grade K-6 attend the camp each summer.
The are introduced to art techniques and
art history, and take part in all sorts of cre-
ative activities. "It raises enough money
that' it pays for my supplies for the year,"
said Fryar.
Each day, Fryar sees first hand the im-
pact art can have on the lives of youth, and
prides herself in giving them new ways to
explore their developing talents -
whether through drawing, ceramics, paint-
ing, art history or something else altogeth-
er.
In Fryar's classroom, youth who. have
discipline issues or are struggling with
academics, often find art to be an outlet
where they can excel.
"The struggling reader who can't always
excel in the classroom can sometimes ex-
cel in the art room. Those with attention,
disorders are able to express themselves.
There's more freedom of movement. And
it's okay to talk here," said Fryar. "This can
be that outlet for them."
Art also builds self-esteem and helps
some students grow their wings and learn
to fly, said Fryar.
"In art, there's always something some-
one can do. A student who can't draw well
may be able to paint. I have found'that


every student has been able to excel at
some aspect," said Fryar.
Fryar also includes art history lessons in
her curriculum as a way to encourage stu-
dent faces tough problem in their lives. "It
is encouraging to students to hear about
the lives of troubled artist and to learn how
their art work came out of that."
According to Fryar, art gives those with
special needs a chance to blossom.
"Art allows special needs students to
work on equal terms with other students,"
she said. Fryar went on to tell of one stu-
dent who had autism and could not express
himself through facial expressions. "He
created a cartoon character who could ex-
press all the things he couldn't," said Fryar.
Fryar says the student would draw the car-
toon character with exaggerated smiles or
frowns to express his feelings. "Through
his art he found acceptance from other stu-
dents," she went on to say. "He has blos-
somed."
Fryar says her favorite art to teach is that
of Vincent Van Gogh. "Every student can
be taught to do his art and do it well," she
said.
SOne of Fryar's students, diagnosed with
cerebral palsy, was able to reproduce Van
Gogh's Sunflowers beautifully -- using
only his thumb. With a thick compound of
paint and by following an outline, he was
able to create the same effect as Van Gogh.
Fryar said students like these constantly
inspire and bring out compassion in their
fellow classmates, and in the process find
acceptance. Seeing these special, and
sometimes hidden sides of students' per-
sonalities is what she says makes her job
so unique.
Fryar, whose favorite art is what she
calls "student art," says she plans to con-
tinue teaching art until she retires, unless
God calls her somewhere else.
"I never imagined being here. You never
know where you're going to end up," she
said.


In Fryar's classroom, youth who have
discipline issues or are struggling with
academics, often find art to be an outlet
where they can excel.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: Why is saliva important?
A: Saliva is your mouth's lubricant, a
mixture of water, mucous, protein and
enzymes. As such, it performs a variety of
roles. For one thing, it moistens and
begins to break down starch. It also binds
chewed food into a ball, or bolus, so you
can swallow it.
Saliva also contributes to our sense of
taste. That's because taste buds don't
react tp dry food. Salvia is generated by
three pairs of major salivary glands and
numerous minor glands in your cheeks
and lips.The parotid glands are near the
base of the ear. The sublingual glands are
under the tongue. The third type is the
submandibular, which is under your
jawbone. They generally secrete a small
but steady amount of saliva. Food-
sometimes just thinking about it - will
trigger heavy flow of saliva. That's where
the phrase "mouth-watering" comes from.
Saliva also helps prevent tooth decay. It
provides the liquid that can help wash out
particles of food left behind after eating.
Among the minerals that are in saliva are
calcium and phosphorous, which help
strengthen tooth enamel. Get more
information from your dentist about saliva
and about the other factors that
contributes to keeping your mouth healthy
and functioning properly.

Commissioners voted Tues-

land for $499,950.
"I'm really looking for-

good project. It could bring
200 or more jobs."
Seventy-five percent of

ers is to have rail and at this
time (that site) is our only
option," said McLean.
The project is part of the
state Rural Economic De-
velopment Catalyst Project,
which is designed to help
counties in regions of "criti-
cal economic concern" bring
industry to their regions.
Each participating county
helps fund a Catalyst Pro-
ject, creating a "shovel-
ready" site so that business-
es can begin construction
right away. The host county
would benefit the most by
having jobs in the area and
revenue coming in. Other
counties in the region that
helped fund the project
would make money based
on a formula already in
place.
Participating counties in
our region are Baker, Brad-
ford, Columbia, Dixie,
Gilchrist, Hamilton, Jeffer-
son, Lafayette, Levy, Madi-
son, Putnam, Taylor and
Union.


$1.1M verdict in Elliott civil case


Continued From Page 1A

Live Oak courtroom
Thursday. They found that
Elliot was financially re-
sponsible for the "negli-
gent handling of the
corpse" of his late mother,
resulting in damages of
$200,000 each to his broth-
er, Douglas Elliot, and sis-
ter, Mary Ann Hooper. The
jury ordered Elliot to pay
$300,000 to each of his
siblings for the emotional
distress he caused them
and $100,000 for diminish-
ing the value of the fami-
ly's property. The siblings


claimed that the improper
disposal of their mother's
remains by Elliot onto the
land "tainted and stigma-
tized" the property and
lowered its market value.
After murdering his moth-
er, Elliott burned her re-
mains and scattered them
on the faim he had shared
with her.
Elliot was convicted in
April of first-degree mur-
der in his mother's Novem-
ber 2007 death. In addition,
he was found guilty for the
abuse of a human body and
for tampering with evi-
dence.

Michael Arthur Boying-
ton was convicted in May
2008 of the 2006 shooting
of Arpad Laszlo Balint of
Live Oak. Balint, shot in
the stonlach, was hospital-
ized in serious condition
but later recovered.
On Thursday, Boying-
ton's attorneys, Duke Fagan
and Terry D. Bork, offered
signed affidavits in court of
"at least two witnesses"
who support the claim that


a juror fell asleep during
Boyington's trial.
According to a legal
brief filed by his attorneys,
Boyington is "entitled ... to
a new trial because the rule
is that a new trial must be
granted if any jury is guilty
of any misconduct that re-
sults in prejudice to the
substantial rights of a de-
fendant."
Boyington, 62, is cur-
rently serving a 35-year
prison sentence and is not
scheduled for release until
2041.

New football


coach for SMS
By Tom Daniels

The Suwannee Middle School announced the appointment of
Jimmy McCullers as new head football coach. McCullers takes
over from Hall Of Famer Danny Robinson, who coached his
sport longer than any coach ever here.
McCullers graduated from Suwannee High School in 1984.
He was an all area offensive tackle for the Bulldogs. McCullers
was a Florida walk on in 1987 and 1988 where he spent his time
as nose guard chasing down some guy named Emmitt Smith as a
member of the scout team. During his tenure at the University of
Florida his locker was next to some freshman named Jerry
Odom. McCullers served as a Suwannee County Sheriff's
deputy and Gainesville Police officer before joining the middle
school teaching staff in 2002.
S Coach McCullers will be joined on staff with Ronnie
Baldwin, long time community volunteer coach and Suwannee
grads Glenn Green and Eric Ivey.

Smokey
Bear's
Birthday

A steady stream of well-wishers visited Ocean Pond
Aug. 15 to wish Smokey Bear a Happy 65th Birthday.
The party was hosted by The Suwannee Forestry Cen-
ter, Florida Division of Forestry and the Osceola Ranger
District, U.S. Forest Service. Attendees were treated to
exhibits by The US Forest Service, The Florida Division
of Forestry, The Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge,
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion, The Florida National Guard and the Baker County
Fire Department.
The National Guard's Rock Wall
was active all day, and kids loved the
: opportunity to blow the siren on the
Baker County fire truck. Everyone en-
joyed the free hot dogs and chips.
About 700 were eaten throughout the
day. But the real highlight for every-
one was meeting Smokey Bear, and
wishing him a Happy Birthday.
Sam LeNeave, Center Manager of
the Suwannee Forestry Center, re-
Sports, "Smokey's 65th Birthday Party
Swas a tremendous success. We had in
the neighborhood of 500 people at-
tending the event. This is better than I
S l anticipated." LeNeave continued,
"This would not have been possible
without everyone coming together and
making things happen. In addition to
the work done by the organizers and
exhibitors, community support was
excellent."

The Suwannee Bulldogs
travel to Chiefland this Friday
night for the Kickoff Classic.
Chiefland has some speed and
the home field advantage. The
Bulldogs are coming off a two-
win season and will be looking
to sneak up on some opponents.
The Bulldogs haven't played
Chiefland in recent history and
this may be the start of
something. A win Friday would
be a great way to start the
tempo. Coach Jerry Odom
makes his debut. I won't say
coach is intense, but I got
secondhand hypertension
standing next to him at the
spring game. I'll give you a hint
where to go for your Bulldog
shirt. It sounds like Sports
Connection, just like it.
The pros are already in full
mode with their preseason.
Favre and Vick have stolen all
the headlines. Remember Tom
Brady? He is back and so are the
Patriots. It could be a New
York-New England Super Bowl
again. A lot of fans who were
college only, now are pro fans
due to fantasy football. If you're
still looking for a league give
me a call at 386-647-6913.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) has not
found any evidence of chronic wasting
disease (CWD) after extensive testing of
the state's white-tailed deer population.
The FWC tested 582 free-ranging tleer
during the past year and more than 4,000
deer during the past seven years, with no
CWD-positive results.
"While we can never say that Florida is
entirely free of the disease without
testing every deer, this sample size gives
us confidence that if CWD is present in
Florida, it is at low levels," Dr. Mark
Cunningham, FWC's wildlife
veterinarian, said. "However, even low
numbers of CWD-positive deer would be
cause for concern, so we plan to continue
testing for the foreseeable future."
CWD is a contagious neurological
disease that has been found in captive
and wild mule deer, white-tailed deer,
moose and Rocky Mountain elk within
several midwestern and western states.
The disease causes degeneration of the
brains'ifi'infdcd aii;mals, resulting in
emaciation, abnormal behavior, loss of
bodily functions and death.
Thus far, no southeastern state,

Cheek's Gymnastics
Season-opener is Saturday

Gill; Grecia Lagunas and
Stephanie Stewart. The
only Level six (advanced)
gymnast to compete this
season is Tessa Ferreira.
After competing
Saturday, Cheek's will
compete two more times
in September, two in
October and two ih
November. There will be
one state meet for each
level.
Tom Cheek has a total
of 33 years in competitive
and recreational
gymnastics. Cheek started
his first gym in 1976 and
has had two other gyms up


until the present. Cheek
competed at Florida State
University in the early
1970's and Chris Cheek
(his wife & coach)
competed at the University
of Florida. Stormy Cheek
(his daughter and assistant
coach) is currently
enrolled at Lake City
Community College in
Lake City.
"We also have Cary
Winstead and Tessa
Ferreira as apprentice
coaches," said Cheek.
Cheek's Gymnastics is
located above Suwannee
Health and Fitness, a
weight training gym.
Cheek's also offers


recreational gymnastics
for the fun of it, preschool
gymnastics, cheer
tumbling for those who
wants to be a cheerleader
and tumble classes for
those that want to increase
their tumbling skills. The
gym not only has vaulting,
uneven bars, balance beam
and floor exercises but
also has a regulation
trampoline, a 65-foot long
trampoline called a tumble
trac, a mini tramp (small
version of a trampoline),
parallel bars, single bars,
three practice balance
beams and all kinds of
crash pads and landing
mats.


including Florida, has been hit by the
deer disease.
To reduce the chances of CWD
entering Florida, the state prohibits
importing live deer unless they come
from a herd that has been certified CWD-
free for five or more years and carcasses
of any species of deer, elk or moose from
15 states and two Canadian provinces
where CWD has been detected.'
SChronic wasting disease has been
detected in New Mexico, Utah, Colorado,
Wyoming, Kansas, Minnesota,
Oklahoma, Montana; South Dakota,
Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois, New York,
West Virginia, Michigan and Alberta and
Saskatchewan, Canada. Visit the CWD
Alliance Web site at www.cwd-info.org/
for the most up-to-date CWD reporting.
"Early detection is the key to limiting
the spread of the disease, if such an
outbreak should occur in Florida,"
Cunningham said.
Once again, this hunting season, the
FWC is turning to hunters and members
of the public for assistance in helping
monitor the state's deer herd for CWD.
"We're asking hunters to
report any sightings of sick or

such a deer, call toll-free 866-CWD-
WATCH (293-9282). Please do not
handle the deer. Wildlife biologists will
respond, and if necessary, collect deer
tissue for testing. It's important to

48 hours of a deer's death to yield -
reliable results."
CWD WATCH is part of an aggressive
monitoring program to ensure CWD is
not already in Florida and the disease
does not spread into this state.
There is no evidence that CWD poses a
risk for humans, however, public health
officials recommend avoiding direct
contact with any sick-looking deer or one
that has died from unknown causes.

Medication Prescribed for Narcolepsy
Narcolepsy is a chronic sleep condition characterized by daytime
sleepiness and a sudden need for sleep. This sleep disorder is
associated with a decreased production of the brain chemical
hypocretin, which plays a critical role in the regulation of the sleep-
wake cycle. Signs and symptoms may include restless sleep during
the night, decreased daytime alertness, and a decreased ability to
concentrate. Persons with narcolepsy also someume5 experience
cataplexy, which is a sudder.. bnel loss of muscle tone Narcoleps.
may occur due to genetic causes or. from an infecuon'that affects
brain cells, however the exact cause is not known.
An afternoon nap is recommended for the management of daytime
drowsiness. Although there is no cure for narcolepsy, medications
that promote wakefulness may help. Modafinil (Provigil) is
approved for narcolepsy. Methylphenidate-(C6ncereta,' Ritalin),
dextroamphetamine'(Dexedrine), and methamphetamine (Desoxyn)
are central nervous system stimulants that also may beprescribed,
however may cause more side effects. Antidepressants, such as
protriptyline (Vivactil), imipramine (Tofranil), and fluoxetine
(Prozac) also may be prescribed for alleviation of certain symptoms
associated with the condition. 4929-F

FWC opens python captures to


licensed hunters on S. Fla. WMAs


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
and Big Cypress National Preserve
will implement a program to
reduce the number of Burmese
pythons in the wild in Florida.
Beginning Saturday, the FWC and
Big Cypress will enlist the help of
licensed hunters on specific
wildlife management areas in
South Florida.
To move forward quickly for the
2009 hunting season, an executive
order was signed by the FWC to
allow hunters on specific areas to
take any Reptile of Concern,
including Burmese pythons, when
the hunters encounter them. The
order also will apply to those who
have received permits to
participate in the alligator hunt
program in the specified areas. The
FWC will be considering rule
changes as necessary to follow up
on this order for more long-term
measures.
The order states, "Reptiles of
Concern as listed in Rule 68A-
6.007(1)(a)-(f) may be taken
during established seasons for the
taking of game animals or
alligators on the areas and only by
persons properly licensed and
permitted to take game animals a I
or alligators."
Reptiles of Concern may not be
taken out of the areas alive. The
order also requires hunters to
report the take of Reptiles of
Concern within 36 hours and to
provide the FWC. with specific data
about the reptile taken. For more
information on data collection, go
to the Quick Clicks area of
MyFWC.com and select "Burmese
pythons."
The lands specified in the FWC
order are Everglades and Francis S.
Taylor, Holey Land, Rotenberger
and Big.Cypress wildlife
management areas. Everglades
National Park is not a participant in
this particular program. However,


the FWC is working with Big
Cypress, the South Florida Water
Management District and the
National Park Service to manage
the Burmese python problem in the
area of South Florida that
encompasses the Everglades. The
Big Cypress National Preserve is
instrumental in enlisting support
from hunters through its Partnering
with Hunters program.
"It is only natural that we enlist
the aid of hunters," said Rodney
Barreto, FWC chairman.
"Historically, hunters have played
a great role with wildlife
conservation in this country, and
they know the land and have a
vested interest in conserving native
habitat and game species."
In July, the FWC began issuing
permits to selected recipients to go'
into these wildlife management
areas to search for and euthanize
Reptiles of Concern. The permit
Shoulders and licensed hunters may
remove the hide and meat of the
reptiles from the state-managed
lands. However, according to the
National Park Service, mercury
testing on two dozen captured
Burmese pythons in Everglades
National Park revealed
extraordinarily high levels of
mercury in the meat. These levels
are well above those considered
safe to eat in freshwater fish and
alligators. The FWC is working
with the National Park Service and'
the Florida Department of Health,
to get a broader view of this issue.
It will provide updates as further
information about mercury levels
becomes available.
The FWC's goal for these
programs is to contain the spread
of Burmese pythons in the wild and
prevent the establishment of other
Reptiles of Concern. Data
collected by hunters on these state-
managed lands at the edge of the
range of Burmese pythons will
assist in preventing movement of

pythons out of this range. It is
estimated there are thousands of
Burmese pythons in the wild in
South Florida. Experts believe pet
owners may have released pythons
into the wild when they pad grown
too large for the owners to care for
them.
It is illegal to release any
nonnative species, including
Reptiles of Concern, into the wild.
Besides Burmese pythons, the
FWC's list of Reptiles of Concern
include the Indian python,
reticulated python, African rock
python, amethystine or scrub
python, green anaconda and Nile
monitor lizard.
If Reptile of Concern pet owners
cannot keep their snakes anymore,
they can turn the reptiles in during
the FWC's Pet Amnesty Days.
These events are held around the
state to provide the opportunity for
people to surrender their nonnative
pets, with no questions asked. The
next one is Nov. 7 in the Tampa
area. Every attempt is made to
place all healthy animals with
qualified adopters. People with
properly licensed Reptiles of
Concern also may give them to
other licensed individuals. For
more information on Pet Amnesty
Days, go to

It's not too late to hunt - Nas.. sau Mi


It's not too late to hunt Nassau WVIA


If you are looking for a place to hunt this
fall, you still have a chance to get a
recreational use permit for the Nassau
'Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in
Nassau County during the upcoming hunting
season.
Nassau WMA is 13,892 acres neat
Callahan. All users, must possess a Nassau
recreational use permit to hunt on this area.
Nassau WMA is a still-hunt area only, but
hunters may use bird dogs during the
migratory bird and waterfowl hunting
seasons.
"There are only 350 permits issued for this.
area, but the good news is there are permits
remaining," said Karen Parker, public
information coordinator for the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC).
For those willing to pay $385 to hunt the
area, Nassau WMA provides hunting
opportunities during eight months of the
year: Archery is from Sept. 26 through Oct.
25; muzzleloading gun season runs from Oct.
31 through Nov. 8; general gun season is
from Nov. 14 through Jan. 10, 2010; small
game is from Jan. 11 through March 7, 2010;
spring turkey season runs from March 20


through April 25, 2010; and trapping can be
done from Jan. 11, through March 1, 2010.
To apply for a recreational use permit to
hunt on Nassau WMA, go to
MyFWC.com/docs/LicensesPermits/Quota_
Work_0910_RecreationalUse.pdf.
Recreational use permits are designed to
provide more revenue to landowners in the
WMA system. Money set aside by the FWC
to compensate those landowners for hunting
use on their lands was not sufficient to
compete with private hunting leases. Rather
than have WMAs drop out of the system, the
FWC offers recreational use permits. Fees
collected from these permits supplement the
compensation for private landowners,
keeping their lands open to public hunting.
Except for hunting, permit holders and
their spouses or dependent children may
participate in other activities on designated
WMAs. Only permit holders and one
dependent child (under age 16) may hunt. If
spouses or more than one dependent child,
(under age 16) wish to hunt, they must
purchase a recreational use permit..
Recreational use permits also include a
management area permit when hunting
public lands not in the recreational use


program.
Recreational use permits do not apply to
other recreational use program areas. Once
permits are issued, they can be renewed .
annually for two additional years, essentially
making them a three-year permit. Permit
renewals are mailed May 1; Eligible
applicants have until May 31 to renew their
recreational use permits for the next season.
Permits not renewed by May 31 will be
forfeited, and they will be made available to
the public on a first-come, first-served basis.
Permits are issued individually on a first-
come, first-served basis in June.
Applications may be submitted online at
www.wildlifelicense.com/fl or take a
completed worksheet to a tax collector's
office or any license agent and they will
"submit the application for you. Worksheets
are available online at
http://myfwc.com/License/Hunt_Quota_Limi
tedEntryWorksheets.htm, at FWC regional
offices and tax collectors' offices in counties
surrounding a specific WMA.
Quota hunt permits are not required on
WMAs within the recreational use program,.
since only recreational use permit holders
may use the area.


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) met with stakeholders Aug. 18 to seek assistance
with the proposed draft rules for Florida's imperiled species .
listing process. After listening to members of environmental
groups, recreationisis, developers and staff from other
government entities, the FWC decided to take more time to
work on the new process, which will include a
comprehensive management system for those species that are
in danger of going extinct.
. Originally, FWC staff planned to' present draft rules to the
Commission on Sept. 9 at its quarterly the meeting in
Howey-in-the-Hills. However, after the stakeholder meeting,
it was decided to hold more public and stakeholder meetings.
.Staff will make a presentation at September's meeting and
then bring draft rules to the Commission for consideration at
its December meeting in Clewiston. '
"Our stakeholders told us they supported what we were
doing, but they felt it needs a little more work and that it was
important to present a rule to the Commission that everyone
could support," said Dr. Elsa Haubold, the leader of PWC's
imperiled species team. "We all have the same goal and that
is to conserve wildlife in Florida."
A team of FWC employees has been working on draft


rules to create a comprehensive management system, which
will identify species that need state intervention for survival.
The draft rules link species protections to science, while
using a balanced approach through collaboration and
partnerships.
The FWC will hold a meeting for the public.to comment
on the changes to the imperiled species listing process on
Aug. 24 at 6 p.m. at the FWC's Fish and Wildlife Research
Institute in St. Petersburg. Video-conferencing will be
available from the five regional FWC offices in Panama
City, Lake City, Ocala, Lakeland and West Palm Beach and
from the FWC headquarters office in the Bryant Building in
Tallahassee.
"We are committed to working with anyone who's
interested in providing input as staff drafts rules that focus
on management of species," Haubold said. "It is important
for the public to understand and support how we conserve
imperiled species."
The proposed drqft rules are available for reviewing qnd
comment at
MyFWC.com/VILDLIFEHABITATS/imperiledSppindex.htm
. Public comments on the draft rules can be e-mailed to
imperiled@MyFWC.com.

Effective Ways to Banish Bad Breath
One of the first things many people notice about other people is their smile. A
beautiful smile can make a strong first impression and boost an individual's confidence
as well.
But as strong an impression as a beautiful smile can make, the breath behind that
smile is equally Important. Bad breath, for example, can quickly negate a good smile,
no matter how beautiful it is. While what you eat plays a role in whether or not you
have bad breath, other factors influence how your breath smells as well.
Lifestyle Habits
Certain lifestyle habits strongly influence an individual's breath. People who do not
brush or floss daily, for instance, are far more likely to have bad breath. That's because
food particles remain in the teeth after eating, promoting the growth of bacteria
between teeth, on the tongue and around the gums. That bacterial growth results in
bad breath.
Another factor that contributes to bad breath is smoking or chewing tobacco.
Tobacco-based products are very detrimental to a person's oral hygiene, causing bad
breath but potentially contributing to gum irritation, stained teeth and,a reduced ability
to taste foods as well.
Individual Health
Bad breath isn't always a reflection of a person's diet or lifestyle choices. Sometimes
bad breath might be indicative ol a larger issue such as gum disease. As plaque builds
up on the leelh, the resulting bacteria cause toxins to form in the mouth. Those toxins
irritate the gums. While gum irritation is often painful enough, allowing it to go
untreated can result in worse problems, including damage to the jawbone.
Other ailments can contribute to bad breath as well. In addition to diabetes, liver or
kidney problems can contribute to bad breath, as can chronic respiratory problems
such as bronchitis or pneumonia. Acid reflux can also contribute to bad breath.
Prevention
While there's no guaranteed way to banish bad breath forever, there are ways to
reduce or prevent it.
* Stop smoking. Smokers or people who chew tobacco can greatly reduce their risk for
bad breath by quitting. While that's easier said than done, it's as close to a guarantee
to reducing bad breath as smokers will find.
* Stay hydrated. Dry mouth often results in bad breath, so staying hydrated by drinking
lots of water can reduce bad breath. Also, chewing sugarless gum can stimulate the
production of saliva, helping to keep the mouth moist in the process.
* Visit the dentist. Many people fear the dentist's chair, but visiting the dentist at least
twice a year can greatly reduce the risk of bad breath. A dentist can give a thorough
cleaning and will be able to monitor and detect the common problems that contribute
to bad breath, such as gum disease or dry mouth.
" Remember Mom and Dad's advice. Mom and Dad always said to brush twice per day
and floss after meals, and that advice is as true today as It was back then. In addition
to brushing your teeth, brush your tongue as well. And be sure to replace your
toothbrush every 2 to 3 months, or when it begins to look frayed, whichever comes
first.
To learn more about oral hygiene, visit the American Dental Association Web site at
www.ada.org.

Mose Tolliver, Ruby C. Williams, Edward Mumma,
Johnnie Griner, Lonnie Holley, and Alyne Harris. The
exhibition is centered around the work of Thornton Dial
Sr., who was.featured in the 2007 PBS documentary


entitled "Mr. Dial Has Something to Say," and has had
solo exhibitions at the American Folk Art Museum (NY,
NY) and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (Houston, TX).
Jane Simpson, Visual Arts Director at the Colquitt Arts
Center (Moultrie, GA) will give a gallery talk on Friday,
August 28 at 6:30pm. The opening receptionist from 6-

UF vets treat life-threatening




vascular infection in horses


Two horses at risk for life-threatening
bleeding caused by an uncommon
infection of the internal carotid artery
were successfully treated recently by
University of Florida veterinarians who
used cutting-edge technology to resolve
the problem faster and less invasively
than traditional surgery would allow.
"The problem both of these horses had
involved a disease called guttural pouch
mycosis, or a fungal infection in the
guttural pouch," said Herb
Maisenbacher, V.M.D., an assistant
clinical professor of cardiology at UF's
Veterinary Medical Center. "The
infection can eat its way through the
tissues in the back of the throat,
potentially rupturing the arteries."
Typical symptoms include bleeding.
from the nose, Maisenbacher said. UF
veterinarians treated the first horse in
October 2008, and the second in May,
"One horse's red blood cell count was
actually dropping because of the
bleeding," he said. "The other had just
one nose bleed. The owners knew they


needed to do something before it became
life-threatening."
Lynne Kimball-Davis of Wellington
recalled the late October morning when
she went to feed her horse, a Dutch
warmblood named Upper Class, and
discovered him in his stall bleeding
profusely from the nose.
"It looked like he had been
massacred," she said.
Kimball-Davis rushed her horse to
Palm Beach Equine Clinic, where
veterinarians determined a referral to UF
was necessary.
"He was stabilized for two days and
then Sunday morning, we got him up to
Dr. (David) Freeman," Kimball-Davis
said.
She added that Upper Class returned
home after about a week at.UF, and has
made steady progress since then.
"I'm getting ready to show him in the
fall again," she said. "Everyone has told
me he's perfectly fine now and not to
give his problem a second thought."
Freeman, an equine surgeon, -


collaborated with Maisenbacher's
cardiology team to treat both cases. In
each case, a device known as a vascular
plug was inserted to occlude the at-risk
.artery. Before that, surgeons access the
carotid artery through a small incision in
the neck and use a contrast agent to find
the damaged vessels before blocking
them off.
"The affected area is difficult to
approach surgically, but it's been done
before," Maisenbacher said. "Another
approach has been to place multiple
metallic coils inside the vessel to block
the flow of blood. What made our
approach unique is that we were able to
make the procedure go more smoothly
by using newer devices to achieve the
same result."
Freeman, who has used all the various
treatments, favors the new approach.
"The minimally invasive introduction
of nitinol plugs seems the best to me,"
he said. "It's also a nice example of
teamwork between the small and large
animal hospitals that allows us to make


use of leading-edge technologies that
benefit many species."
Maisenbacher said the vascular plugs
are made for use in human medicine, and
are believed to have only been used at
Purdue University's veterinary school to
treat gutteral pouch mycosis in horses.
Because of the success UF has had in
treating dogs with the devices,
Maisenbacher felt a similar result might
be achieved in horses.
"Once the animals wake up from
anesthesia, they are almost back to their
normal selves," he said. "The other
advantage is that the devices offer the
ability to access vessels that by
traditional methods are very difficult to
get to. Plus, there really is no other
medical treatment for this condition."
The procedure takes between two and
three hours, he added.
Anyone seeking more information
about UF's Veterinary Medical Center
and treatments currently availablefor
pets and horses should call 352-392-
2213 or visit www.vetmed.ufl.edu.

Web site to help improve physical fitness in kids


By April Frawley Birdwell
Surrounded by Gov. Charlie Crist and star athletes such
as former Tampa Bay. Buccaneer Derrick Brooks and
tennis star Jennifer Capriati, state leaders recently
unveiled a UF-developed Web site aimed at incredsihg',
physical activity in children.
UF informatics specialists teamed with the state
Department of Health, Crist and other agencies to expand
and improve the Web site for the Governor's Fitness
Challenge, an eight-week program that allows children
and schools to earn awards and recognition for their
progress and involvement in physical activities.
The interactive site made its debut at the Governor's
Council on Physical Fitness meeting in Tampa.
Complete with online tools, statistics and even healthy
recipes from star chef Emeril Lagasse, the new and
improved Governor's Fitness Challenge Web site should
allow more children than ever to participate in the
program, says Narayan Raum, assistant informatics
manager for the UF Clinical and Translational Research
Informatics Program in the College of Medicine
department of epidemiology and health policy research.
"To actually be involved in a project that could
potentially help a lot of kids get even just an extra 10


minutes of exercise a day is very exciting," said Raum,
whose team developed the site. "With the overall positive
impact this could have on many children, there is nothing
to lose here. Even if 10 kids get healthier because they
were involved, it makes it worthwhile."
Before the new site, students and schools had to send
forms and written charts of activity to the state in order to
participate. Now, children and teachers can log in to the
Web site, where they can track their time and even view
live statistics. For example, once this year's program
starts, the top five schools with the highest levels of
participation will be listed on the site. Because schools
are competing for end-of-year monetary prizes, these
statistics could spur a little friendly competition and get
more schools involved, Raum said.
The program starts Sept. 1 for elementary schools and
Nov. 18 for middle schools. Although the challenge is
school-based, homeschooled children and students in
schools that do not participate can take part in the
program, too.
The state received funding from the AT&T Foundation
to remodel the site. UF's Clinical and Translational
Research Informatics Program software engineering
specialists were hired to reconfigure the site and develop


Ti tn c to Upgr cIe.

a database for program statistics. The team, led by project
manager Erik Henrikson, began developing the site in
January.
