The owners of the Village Inn Apart-
ments, once known as Blue Lodge, have
been ordered to remove two entrance tow-
ers and a wall that have been part of the
landscape on US 90 West for 69 years. The
structures are on a right of way owned by
CSX Transportation, which operates the


local railroad. The owners
Inn fear CSX plans to close
there, thus hampering access
ments and business office.
However, CSX denies tha

"At the moment we do
close the crossing," said
Gary Sease. "We obviously d
authority. The state would ha

Total Access a

YouTube hit for SHS


Students produce Internet
show with barely any budget
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com

Thanks to some smart, resourceful students at
Suwannee High, local folks and those abroad
now have full access to the latest happenings at
SHS.
Wednesday, nearly 20 students in instructor
Steve Johnson's television production class were
hard at work completing assignments and editing
show material for their weekly YouTube podcast
called SHS Total Access. Their newest episode
airs Monday morning.
Each week, students prepare a 9 1/2 minute
long volume of the campus-related online show.
"Since around Christmastime last year, we've
gone from producing one show a month to a new
show every other week, and now we produce the
show once a week," said 18-year-old Brenna
Manns.

North Florida water

By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.

The Florida Senate

mittee has called for
the establishment of "a
central regulatory com-
mission to oversee Florida c
water resources and supply de-
velopment," according to an interim committee report.
Such a move could involve sending water from the
Suwannee River south to appease the growing demands
of economic development and to replace dwindling wa-
ter supplies there.
"A water supply commission could oversee building
pipelines and storage tanks 'needed for the storage and
distribution of water over a broad geographic area so as
to provide water to and between regional water supply
entities,"' the St. Petersburg Times reported Oct. 31,

EXTENSION UPDATE



Just what is the Cooperative



Extension Service?


By Mary Sowerby
R. *.;. ,,,l1 Specialized Dairy
Agent

Call 386-362-2771 and a
pleasant voice will answer,
"UF/IFAS/Suwannee
County Extension Service.
How may I help you?"
You would have reached
the Suwannee County
Extension Office at 1302
llth Street SW, next to the
County Ag Coliseum and
Fairgrounds. Extension
offices found in each
county of the state have
been described as the local
front door of the University
of Florida.
Helping you is what the
Cooperative Extension
Service is all about.
Historically, the 1914
Smith-Lever Act provided
federal support for land
grant institutions (in
Florida they are the
University of Florida and
Florida A&M) to offer
educational programs.
These programs were and
continue to enhance the
application of useful and
practical information
beyond their campuses
through Cooperative
Extension efforts with state
and local communities.
Today that means a
wealth of practical
information is available
through the Extension
office. From help
identifying the disease of a
plant; to money
management tips; to crop
fertilizer recommendations;
to teaching 4-H livestock
judging; to helping find the
solution to your life's
problems. In fact, at your
fingertips through the
Internet, there is an
incredible library of
information found at the
UF Extension Web site:
http://solutionsforyourlife.u
fl.edu.
Each of the five county


agents, and one regional
agent with offices in the
Suwannee County
Extension Office have
advisory committees who
share programming
suggestions based on their
needs. Since needs change,
so do programs, which are
constantly evolving with
new research-based
information.
The agents in our office
each have their own
specialties:
Katherine Allen -
(County Extension
Director) Energy efficient
home building, food safety
and canning; advisor to the
Home and Community
Educators.
Brian Estevez 4-H
youth programs.
Cathy Rogers Nutrition
and money matters,
including classes for
diabetics and new
homeowners. In addition,
she coordinates the county
Family Nutrition Program
grant from which Bonnie
Box teaches nutrition to all
the Live Oak Pre-K
through first grade classes.
Carolyn Saft -
Horticulture, including the
Florida Friendly
Landscaping program and
training Master Gardeners
to help answer homeowner
landscape and plant
questions.
Mary Sowerby -
(Regional) Dairy
production, financial and
nutrient management.
Elena Toro Agriculture,
especially livestock,
forages and farm
management.
In addition, we are
blessed to have two
Regional Specialized
Agents who work out of
the Suwannee Valley-North
Florida Research and
Education Center (phone
number 386-364-1725):
Bob Hochmuth Small
farms and vegetables;
Linda Landrum -
Marketing and rural
development.
If these folks do not
know the answers to your
questions, they tap into the
knowledge of specialists at
the University of Florida.
From there an Extension
network throughout the
land grant university


system is available for
reference.
Assisting with question
answering and educational
programming at the
Suwannee County
Extension Office, are a
wonderful support staff:
Diane McMillan, Wanda
Walters, Pam Burke and
Carolyn Williams. These
ladies keep things going as
agents are out and about
doing one-on-one
consultations or
educational programs.
In addition, a fantastic
group of people serve as
volunteers who do
everything from teaching
about bats and humming
birds as Master Gardeners,
to leading local 4-H Clubs,
to teaching nutrition and
cooking as Home and
Community Educators, to
acting as advisors to the
various program areas, to
answering the phone when
all staff members are
meeting.
Ultimately, the whole
purpose of the Suwannee
County/University of
Florida/ Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences
Cooperative Extension
Service, is just that to
provide service to the
citizens of Suwannee
County.
It is all about YOU: Your
questions and informational
needs. So please do not
hesitate to contact us.

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL
HEALTH DEPT.


November:

American Diabetes Month
By Mindi Clark, R.N.
November is American Diabetes
Month. Please join the Suwannee County
Health Department and the American1
Diabetes Association in the campaign to
help stop the diabetes epidemic. Nearly
24 million adults and children are living
with diabetes and it is estimated that 57
million Americans have pre-diabetes
(blood glucose levels higher than normal)
or are at risk. We are faced with this disease in part due to
a population of overweight adults and children. Over time
being overweight can lead to insulin resistance, which
means the body cannot use insulin properly.
There are three types of Diabetes: Type 1, Type 2 and
Gestational Diabetes. Each type happens for different
reasons but one is not worse than another. They all result
in high blood glucose levels.
There are some common symptoms that one may
experience with diabetes. Some of those symptoms
become bothersome and a person will seek help from a
doctor.
Symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes may include:
Fatigue (tiredness)
Blurred vision
Frequent infections
Poor wound/sore healing
Dry, itchy skin
Numbness and tingling (like lccl'pii-.i in hands, legs
and feet

Symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes may include:
Frequent urination
Increased thirst
Increased hunger
Unexplained weight loss

Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to complications that
affect your:
heart
blood vessels
eyes
kidneys
feet
nerves
sexual function
emotional health

If you have experienced any of the above symptoms or
if you have a family history of diabetes, please contact
your doctor to be tested for diabetes. Many times,
diabetes can be controlled with food and activity and
sometimes medications. Your doctor will develop a plan
and will work with you toward reducing the
complications that can develop with diabetes. Your doctor
may even refer you to a dietitian and certified diabetes
educator for further help with your diabetes.
The American Diabetes Association has information on
its Web site www.stopdiabetes.com, Facebook at
facebook. com/AmericanDiabetesAssociation and
Twitter com/AmDiabetesAssn. You may also contact them
at 1-800-DIABETES (1-800-342-2383).
So take care of your health and decide to make the
change for a healthier life by ;.* i, .- care of you.

OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat


The lure of

easy water
Face it, we're never going to be free of
the threat to our water supply posed by
South Florida developers and politicians.
The Florida Senate got into the act a
few weeks ago, issuing an interim report
that resurrects a wrong-headed idea from
2003: the creation of a statewide water
panel with power to send the precious re-
source from one part of the state to anoth-
er, depending on where it's neccdcd "
That idea echoes the thinking of the
Council of 100, a powerful Tampa-based
business group that published a report to
that effect in 2003, and has since issued an
updated draft just to make clear they
aren't giving up.
We can fight them off for a while, but
what we really fear is this. South Florida
politicians see the Suwannee as their ace
in the hole, and have for some time. They
may not win this round of the water wars,
but in their minds, when things get bad
enough when the state's economy might
otherwise begin to crumble we'll give up
our water, and willingly.
We'll see about that.
In the meantime, let's hope the conser-
vation bug bites our brothers and sisters to
the south. Something's got to give some-
where. And stranger things have hap-
pened.

Lissen up, got me a great idea here! Let's take a couple mil-
lion taxpayer $$$ and buy us up a weathly families' estate.
Then we can make a showcase of this home for all the tourists
we ain't got 'cause we likes to chase folks off 'round here,
'course we could rent it out to for events, but only to sweet tea
sippin', bible thumpin type folks. Boatloads of bucks there I'll
reckon. Thataway we can remove it from the tax role, set up
yet another do nuthin' board to run it, maybe hire some politi-
cians nephew for 'bout 30 grand to sit there an look at it, raise
homeowners an gas tax some more to maintain it and give the
useless tourism board some money to promote it. What the
hell, we's a rich, progressive, open minded bunch 'round here.
This here democracy thang is a give an take deal, 90% givin
& 10% a takin. Well we could always buy up some bogus
bonds to cover it. Ah tol' you this wus a good idear.

In response to your narrow-minded ranters concerning the
recent Magnolia Festival at the Spirit of The Suwannee Music
Park. Thanks for focusing on the negative aspect that of large
gathering. Yes there were 20 arrests over the 4-day festival,
but there were thousands of concert-goers and hundreds of
fine musicians playing everything from Bluegrass to Rock and
Roll. The festival atmosphere was incredible, as it always is
and for the vast majority of visitors to the park, a fantastic
time.
The police officers working the festival did an outstanding
job as usual, but if you ask them they will tell you overall the
crowd was peaceful, respectful and law-abiding. I bet most of
them would rather work this festival than put up with the
drunken rednecks at the country jam.


rave

Lastly, the Suwannee Democrat chose to ignore the festival,
as usual, until after the fact with the negative news. Next year
try doing some positive articles regarding the musicians, the
organizers and fans of great music. By the way the Bear Creek
Festival is coming up in a few weeks. Hint, Hint. Get out the
Funk!

Why is it that the people who hold a job, even though it is a
pay check to pay check job can't get assistance with food, gas
or the necessities like that just because they make a $100 +/- a
$1 too much? If you step back and look at this, the ones that
are receiving assistance are those who stay at home jobless or
the ones who get a job for a month then quit because it is too
hard for them or that they are plain lazy. People who do work
for a living have to pass a drug test or a back ground check to
keep their jobs and receive a pay check. Right? Well it should
be the same for those who receive a welfare check, food stamp
card or any monetary assistance from the tax payers. The
Working Class that needs a little help!!
..
With the elections coming up maybe it's time to address the
noise ordinance as well as window tints in cars, SUV's and
pickup trucks. Thank you.
..
Taxpayers what would be wrong with borrowing six or eight
drug sniffing dogs from surrounding counties when large
events are happening in Suwannee County? One officer could
walk his dog around each vehicle that entered the event, while
the rest of the officers walked their dogs through the crowds
during the whole event. What about it police chief and sher-
iffs, let's have some comments. Do you think it would work?
Answer please in the Democrat, the taxpayers want to know.
..
I have a rave, I would like to say woo hoo! my husband is
coming home from South Dakota, Fort Meade where he has
been gone four months, and I missed him. And also Go Lady

GUEST COLUMN

I'll just watch from a safe distance


By Dwain Walden
Today I read
where "expert"
snake hunters snared
37 Burmese pythons
during a trial hunting
season in South
Florida. These
boogers can get to be
as big around as an irrigation pipe and
as long as two bass boats.
This invasive snake population is es-
timated in the tens of thousands. Reptile
experts say the problem stems from pet
snakes that were released into the Flori-
da wilds. Now I find the term "pet
snake" as a contradiction in terms. I un-
derstand their place in nature but not in
my house.
And it's feared that these snakes will
upset the Florida ecosystem.
But I think there's another danger that
hasn't been considered. Just imagine
two good old boys out there in their jon
boat, hauling bass out of a canal. Some-
thing very large slithers toward their
boat. It probably smelled the Vienna
sausages. Chances are, they have had a
few beers and suddenly they think they
are extras in a Tarzan movie. They start
flailing around in the boat, yelling and


screaming for help, slinging treble
hooks and otherwise creating havoc.
They could get hurt.
I don't really know what an "expert"
snake hunter is in this regard. Down in
Whigham, Ga., I once hunted rat-
tlesnakes as a rite of assage until I found
a few, and I realized that it really wasn't
fun. Standing at a gopher hole with a
plastic hose to your ear with a rat-
tlesnake singing his rattles on the other
end is not a natural thing. Even though I
knew that rattlesnakes couldn't crawl
up that hose, my imagination would
override my logic and would cause bad
dreams. I would wake up and run to the
bathroom mirror sure to find fang marks
on my ear.
But even on my worst day of hunting
rattlesnakes, I felt the endeavor to be
manageable. I could not possibly think
that, however, if I was hunting some-
thing that could eat a good size pig for
breakfast.
Now the fact that pythons are not poi-
sonous is not germain to this issue in
my book. The fact that they can squeeze
you to death and have you for lunch is.
You can get treated for a rattlesnake
bite, but once you've been eaten ... well,
you get the picture, although you might


debunk anyone's notion that you would
never amount to poop.
I haven't heard where PETA stands
on this issue. But I also won't be sur-
prised if they come out in favor of the
pythons. Snakes could actually become
a political issue rather than just being
reference to a politician.
And I'm sure someone is already
working on some lawyer/snake jokes.
(To my lawyer friends, I have not come
up with any ... yet.) But if I did, it prob-
ably woud have to do with lawyers not
hunting these snakes out of professional
courtesy. And I'm sure there are some
lawyers who could write a few jokes
about journalists.
I guess I respect those people who
will hunt these snakes. But in that vein
there's several things you will never
read about me. They include me being
found frozen on some mountain peak,
my parachute not opening, my bungi
cord being six feet too long and me be-
ing eaten while trying to capture a 20-
foot Burmese python. And you can take
that to the bank, or bury it in your back
yard if you find that applicable.

Looking out for the little ones


Branford man wants every child to have
By Stephenie Livi,;'..r t,
stephenie.livin .t. ,_i .. il n '. .. ,r
Ten years ago Roger L. Burnside watched as a nurse at the Branford Health Department asked a
little boy with "big ol' brown eyes" if Santa Claus had been good to him. The boy shook his head
no.
"We looked at each other and our hearts melted," said Karen Longest, senior clerk at the health
department. "Roger made a vow that it would not happen again."
Burnside, along with the Branford Health Department, made sure that boy received a bag of
goodies, and thus began Toys for Kids Plus. Since then, the organization has gathered clothes,
food, and toys each year to ensure no child misses out on the joy of opening a Christmas pre-
sent.
When Burnside first began Toys for Kids Plus, he never imagined how quickly the operation
would grow. "Back when I started it, I was unaware of the extent," said Burnside. Toys for Kids
Plus gathers presents for hundreds of Branford children each year. Usually enough is raised for
each child to receive shoes, pants, a shirt and one or two toys, said Burnside. "Sometimes we deliv-
er it because people don't have gas to come get it," said Burnside.
In the midst of a slowed economy, Burnside said Toys for Kids Plus is experiencing more
requests now than in years past, and is also receiving fewer donations. "There is a lot of
need for such a small area," said Burnside. And so, this year more than any other,
Toys for Kids Plus needs everyone who can to donate. "I've said that I don't have to
worry about getting gray hairs this year," said Burnside. "I've already gone white
headed from worry in years past."
"Roger's got the biggest heart," said Longest. "I remember one time, it was
a cold and rainy day, and someone came in and said there was a man outside
riding his bicycle without a coat on. Roger hunted down a coat someone had
donated and gave it to the man." Even if a family in need is reported last

O'BRIEN & OUR NEIGHBORS


'Bits & Pieces' from south Suwannee County


By Ana Smith
This past week I had to do a little "calendaring" and
put some things on a couple of lists. One bit of schedul-
ing was writing in dates of upcoming events to benefit
our animal shelter, beginning with setting up space at the
Lake City Mall on Saturday, September 12th, and Sun-
day, September 13th, to showcase some of the animals
we'll have ready for adoption by then. If you are in Lake
City, come by and say hello and check out our furry resi-
dents. You might find just the one pet that is meant for
you. And please say hello to the volunteers at the
Suwannee County Animal Shelter who will be there car-
ing for these sweet animals looking for loving, "forever"
homes.
In the course of emptying drawers, cleaning out clos-
ets, and moving furniture around, it's amazing what
things you find, isn't it? I thought I had purged my clos-
ets long, long ago, but found a small box tucked way
back in a small closet that contained one of Harold's fa-
vorite jackets, his favorite white shirt with navy stripes
that he often wore to church, and a briefcase in which he
kept his latest Sunday School class lesson and his hand-
written agenda for the next Brotherhood breakfast. So I
guess I'll keep them in my closet now..........just be-
cause!! The shirt is a little loose, but I think it will look
pretty nice on me with my navy slacks. As for the jack-
et, it still has that faint scent of his favorite cologne.
And as I sorted through books that had been on the
small bookcase, something compelled me to take one
that had been given to Harold and put it beside my chair
to read later. It was a book that was an inspirational
study journal with short stories of inspiration and plenty


Suwannee River Economic

Council, Inc. seeking

location in Branford


of space after each one in which to write your thoughts
and responses. The book is "In His Hand" written by
Patti Becklund. One story had a bookmark in its fold,
which had to have been put there by Harold. It's a story
of one couple's "blessing box", a Kleenex box in which,
for many months at the end of every day, they wrote
down a blessing they had received that day or something
special that had happened, then placed the piece of paper
in the box. When a stressful or unhappy day came up,
they would sit down and pull out the pieces of paper, and
be reminded of their many blessings. Isn't that a won-
derful idea? And a blessing could be something as sim-
ple and peaceful as watching a red bird sitting on the
edge of the birdbath for several minutes, or celebrating a
special occasion, or the visit of a child or grandchild, or
appreciating a friend or neighbor stopping by just to see
how you are doing. I've already started mine!
I also found one of my many pens that keep disappear-
ing, a small spoon that doesn't belong to any tableware I
own but that was used specifically to take liquid medi-
cines, and a pretty Christmas broach that has been miss-
ing for two years, all most likely thanks to one of my
cats playing with it until it rolled under the dresser, never
to be found until now. (The dresser is very heavy and
hasn't been moved in years, just so you know it's not a
housekeeping problem). Printed words that come with
my music tapes and a couple of audio tapes somehow
found their way into one of the drawers under seldom
worn socks ... no idea how or why they were put there.
And a small stack of greeting cards had fallen behind a
low bookshelf, reviving my desire to get back to mailing
out greetings for every occasion as well as pretty cards


with no printed message in which to send notes just to
say hello.
This week I don't have local news for this column, but
I ask that you please include in your prayers Becky
Fletcher and Sherlynn Cranmer who have medical issues.
My personal sympathy to Harold Dean in the passing of
his father, Cleo Truluck, on August 26.
I am finally getting the batteries in my wheelchair
which is getting a very thorough cleaning, so I'll once
again be able to get out whenever I want and go
wherever I want on my own. God bless all those who
have helped me with my problem chair over the last
bunch of months and to those who have taken me places
and brought store-owned wheelchairs out to the vehicle
when it was impossible to get my own chair loaded. You
know who you are, and I love and appreciate each one of
you!
From "Humorous Quotations" by Bob Phillips:
"An abnormal person is anyone who behaves different-
ly from you."
"No man knows what absentmindedness really is until
he finds himself dialing his own telephone number."
"You never know how absurd your own opinion is un-
til you hear somebody else quoting it."
"If most accidents happen within five miles of home,
why don't we move ten miles away?"
"Old accountants never die; they just lose their bal-
ance."
"The most important thing in acting is honesty. If you
can fake that, you've got it made!"
Have a wonderful week! And don't forget to start your
"blessing box"! God bless!!

Toys for Kids+ really needs your help. Christmas is a time
of joy and celebration; unfortunately there are many children
in the Branford area that will be missing the joy of receiving
Christmas presents. We are in need of toys, clothes and in
some cases, food for these children.
With the economy the way it is right now we are experi-
encing more requests than in past years. No donation is too
small, if you can just provide one toy, a box of food, a win-
ter coat or shoes it will be greatly appreciated.


Anyone interested in helping us with this project can take
their donations to the Branford Health Department. You may
also call Karen at the Branford Health Department at 386-
935-1133 or Roger Burnside at 386-935-3343. Should you
know of a child in need you may also call these numbers.
Over the years the folks in the Branford area have brought
a lot of joy to the area's children and their families, for this
we thank each and every one of you. The smiles and appre-
ciation the children express each year make this project a
blessing to all.


Babe Ruth meeting set

A meeting to elect officers for the Branford
Babe Ruth Baseball League will be held at Hatch
Park Community Center on Wednesday, Nov. 18

Food for Thought

What Sin Can Do!
Today, we have many enemies. Of these
enemies, sin is number one. Sometimes men put
false labels on sin. We might try to justify sin or
even water it down. We must understand there is a
consequence to sin [Rom. 6:23]. What does sin
do?
1) Sin Enslaves Us: Rom. 6:16 and John 8:34
tells us we can become a servant of sin.
2) Sin Spots Us: James 1:27 tells us sin spots us
or makes us unclean. In the story of the Prodigal
Son we see where sin contaminated him [Luke
15:11-32].
3) Sin Scars Us: Someone once said, "Sin is like
smallpox, if it doesn't kill you, it will mostly likely
scar you for life." David remembered his sins [Psa.
51], Paul, too, remembered his sin [I Tim. 1:15].
4) Sin Separates Us: In Isaiah 59 the Jews were
calling upon God in prayer. They questioned
God's ability to help. The wondered if His arm
was too short to help them. You see, the problem
wasn't with God, it was with man. Sin severs
fellowship with God. Sin will take you further
than you want to go, cost you more than you want
to pay and kee you longer than you want to stay!

The Safety Line

From Suwannee County Fire/Rescue



The importance



of fire codes


By Paul Haas
Suwannee County
Fire Marshal

Why do we have fire
codes and fire inspections?
This is a question often
asked during a routine fire
inspection. To answer that
we have supplied the
following Florida State
Statute and a small portion
of the Florida
Administrative Code:
633.121 Persons
authorized to enforce laws
and rules of State Fire
Marshal.
The chiefs of county,
municipal, and special-
district fire departments;
other fire department
personnel designated by
their respective chiefs; and
personnel designated by
local governments having
no organized fire
departments are authorized
to enforce this law and all
rules prescribed by the
State Fire Marshal within
their respective
jurisdictions. Such
personnel acting under the
authority of this section
shall be deemed to be
agents of their respective
jurisdictions, not agents of
the State Fire Marshal.
69A-60.007 Enforcement
of the Florida Fire
Prevention Code.
(1) Section 633.025, F.S.,
provides that each
municipality, county, and
special district with fire
safety responsibilities is
required to enforce the
Florida Fire Prevention
Code. Such enforcement
requires inspection of each
new building subject to the
Florida Fire Prevention
Code and includes periodic
inspections of each existing
building subject to the
Florida Fire Prevention

Code.
We are often asked why
do we need fire codes and
why do we need to strictly
follow them? Fire codes are
there to protect human life
from fire. Prevention of
deadly fires such as the
February 20, 2003 Station
Nightclub Fire in Rhode
Island that claimed the
lives of 100 people, or the
November 21, 1980 MGM
Grand Hotel Fire that
claimed the lives of 85
people is the life-saving
purpose of fire coding.
Each tragic fire leaves its
mark on fire codes. After
those fires, the NFPA and
states reassessed the codes
and made changes to
prevent those causes or
situations that contributed
to loss of life. One
significant fire code change
was made in 2003 by the
state of Florida after a
deadly fire at Seton Hall
University in 2000. Florida
saw a potential for loss of
human life in dormitories
and strengthened the
existing fire code to require
automatic sprinklers in all
new dormitory
construction. Every line of
fire code has a tragic story
behind it. This is why we
place so much importance
on the fire code and the
value of human life.
Every county, city, and or
municipality within the
state of Florida is bound by
the Florida Fire Prevention
Code. The Florida Fire
Prevention Code consists
of the National Fire
Protection Association
(NFPA) Code 1 and 101.
These two "master codes"
set the foundation for fire
coding within the State of
Florida. Counties, cities,
and or municipalities can
add to or strengthen the
base code, but can never
reduce or take away from
that code's requirementss.
The NFPA Codes are
accepted nationally as the
si.lndh.11id Every three
years the Florida Fire
Prevention Code is
reviewed by peers and
modifications are made. On
that triennial basis, the
"new" code is adopted. Is
the fire code law? The
answer is yes. Failure to
adhere to or administrate
the fire code is a violation
of statutory law. Does the
Florida Fire Marshal
interpret the fire code? No,


both the statutes and the
fire code itself specify that
the authority having
jurisdiction (the fire
department with
responsibility for or over
that area) is the interpreter
and administrator of the
code. Can a local official
such as a city or county
commissioner overrule the
interpretation of the fire
code? No, that would be a
violation of the state
constitution, administrative
code and ethics. Can a
building official or building
inspector rule on fire
codes? No, both the Florida
Building Code and the Fire
Code specifically address
the venue and
responsibility for the
separate codes.
Who is the authority
having jurisdiction for
Suwannee County when it
concerns fire code? The
Suwannee County
Fire/Rescue Department is
the authority having
jurisdiction (AHJ).
Where can I view a copy
of the Florida Fire
Prevention Code? There
are two sources, one is your
local fire department and
the other is the Florida Fire
Marshal's Web site (the
online version is read
only). Are residential
homes required to meet the
fire code and be inspected?
No, one and two family
dwellings are at this time
exempt from the code. Can
I obtain a copy of the Fire
Code? Yes, we will assist
you with obtaining a copy
of the fire code or any
section of the code that you
might need. Can I call the
fire department and ask
questions about the fire
code? Yes, that's our job.
For any questions, concerns
or to schedule a fire
inspection of your building,
please call the Suwannee
County Fire/Rescue
department at 364-3404.

Public Safety Director

Conner said the building
will be a big improvement.
"The station that is there
now is falling down

He said the new location
of the building will benefit
residents of Luraville.
"It will be more central-

will be able to get to folks

Construction on the new

GAMETIME


Operation Flashpoint is back


By Cody Webb
Gamers are used to see-
ing first-person shooters
boasting that they're "real-
istic;" from games like the
Ghost Recon series to
Rainbow Six, a lot of se-
ries feature a realistic
mode or difficulty. Only
one game series brings re-
alism to the next level, and
that series is the Operation
Flashpoint games. The
players who experienced
the last game were treated
to a teeth-grinding and
nerve-shattering experi-
ence, with the only really
bad thing about it was the
fact that the graphics were
downright ugly. Well, tac-


tical shooter fans, Opera-
tion Flashpoint is back in
Dragon Rising, and it aims
to bring you as close to a
real firefight as you'd ever
care to get!
First things first: Drag-
on Rising is available for
the Xbox 360, PS3 and
Windows PC; and it's rat-
ed M for Mature for a re-
ally good reason. With the
realistic gameplay comes
realistic damage features
to human bodies, and it's
not pretty. Gamers with
weak stomachs may want
to avoid this, or at least
avoid looking too closely
at their kills. Dragon Ris-
ing was developed by
Codemasters, the folks be-
hind the Dirt racing
games, which makes it a
little depressing they did-
n't provide the totally
open-ended island they
promised. Players are con-
fined to a set mission area,
albeit a large set mission
area, that they aren't al-
lowed to leave.
Now that we've got the

I first want to compliment the Suwannee County
EMS. My dad recently was in the middle of having a
heart attack, the ambulance came, and they were very
compassionate and did their job wonderfully. My rant
though is that it took them almost thirty minutes to get
to our home which is just outside of town. The EMTs
were great they, did their job wonderfully, but my dad
could have been there dying. But come to find out the
EMTs were busy carrying someone to the hospital, who
did not have a mode of transportation and she was just
"feeling bad." I encountered the same person while I
was in the ER waiting to hear about my dad, and I was
absolutely appalled that the ambulance had to transport
her. There was nothing wrong with this person, she was
just not feeling good. I'm confused that when the emer-
gency room became a regular doctors office and when
did our EMTs become a transport service? We pay our
tax dollars for this service to be available to us to use in
an emergency and I am just saddened to see that anoth-
er service, that is meant to help people is being abused.
Again, I applaud the EMTs, they did a wonderful job. I
am just ashamed of the people who abused the system.
m m
Ya'll don't need to fret none about any fun lovin', en-
lightened, money spending' folks who attend events at
the music park movin' here. They wouldn't even dream
of it. The park is the only thing we got that brings in
tourism money to any amount. It is private property, so
why is the law hassling people who spent a lot of mon-
ey to visit here? Maybe if'n we spread our sorry reputa-
tion around enough nobody will come & we can lose
more income & business. Of course we can brag up our
agritourism of bankrupt dairy farms or maybe a tent re-
vival, that's what most American families want to do for
vacation & leisure. If we could arrest people for stupid-
ity, this county would be rollin' in dough.
m m
What happened to the COMICS & PUZZLE page?
We subscribed to the paper in mid-October only to find
there is no COMIC & PUZZLE page. Surely you don't
expect that the pitiful "little" crossword in the TV sec-
tion makes up for the one we lost! It's bad enough we
only get a paper two days a week; now NO PUZZLES
OR COMICS. What is this world coming to!!!
m m
Did it ever occur to anyone that maybe we need to be
more concerned with teaching the kids to read & write


warning out of the way,
let's talk about the game
itself. The story? Forget
about it, it's not that im-
portant. But if you want
the short version: Russia
asks us to fight Chinese
forces on a resource-rich
island for them. Fans of
the series will be glad to
note that Dragon Rising
got a huge graphical up-
grade from its predeces-
sor. Grass sways about as
you run and crawl through
it, smoke drifts up from
ruined vehicles and curls
into the sky while obscur-
ing your vision. It's the lit-
tle touches that make
Dragon Rising more im-
mersive. The only down-
side to the great visuals
would have to be that now
it's a pain to spot enemies.
I realize this is true to life,
but I also get the feeling
that most shooters will be
swayed away by this.
The gameplay remains
mostly intact from the
original Operation Flash-
point; the controls feel


solid and fluid. Again, the
little touches that the de-
velopers added shine
through here; from drop-
ping into prone from
standing and having dirt
hit your face to standing
up a little bit to crouch-
run. As is typical in just
about every game, there's
a difficulty select option,
but in Dragon Rising it
doesn't affect damage tak-
en or amount of ammo
you can hold. The higher
the difficulty, the less of a
H.U.D. that players will
have. In layman's terms: if
you're on Hardcore you
won't have a compass,
ammo counter, mini-map
or health monitor, you'll
have to count your bullets
and remember to check
your map occasionally.
Another thing that hurts
the experience is the in-
credibly stupid A.I. that
drives your squadmates.
Most of the time they'll
listen to the orders you

instead of worried about coverage of a game that only
involves a small group at considerable public expense?
If our graduation rate was as good as our football sup-
port, that would be news worthy.

In response to the letter about illegal aliens in Live
Oak. Although you may not see them on the front page
for selling drugs you will see them arrested on a regular
basis if you check out the sheriff's website. The normal
charges are dui, no drivers license and domestic vio-
lence. There have been numerous accidents in our coun-
ty where the drivers caused the accident and left the ve-
hicle behind to run away. When the plates are run they
usually come up as stolen which is the only way they can
get a plate. I raised several teenage girls who wouldn't
walk through Wal-Mart alone because there would be a
dozen Mexicans following them through the store. This
may not be Arizona, but the problem is just as real here.

To the people in this county that can't find anything
better to do then complain about people getting locked
up for a lil weed over the weekend at the music park.
Just leave if you can't live here because a few people
got locked up over a lil pot smoking at a music thing
then just leave. By the way the same number of people
get arrested at college and pro ballgames every week-
end. Its life get over it if you don't like it leave

I am responding to the person who wrote about the
H1N1 flu and the health dept. not giving out material in
english or spanish, I agree w/ you 100%!! this is Amer-
ica, and if you come here and can't read or write or
speak english, then you need to go back to the place
where you came from. This Is America and we Ameri-
cans Love Our Country! So if you can't or wont speak
English, then go back to Mexico or where ever it is you
snuck across the Border or how ever you entered to Our
Great Country!!

North Florida water under threat

based business group.
According to a 2003 Council report,
such a commission "would be com-
prised of at least seven members, with
at least one from each of the five water
management districts." The Council's
recent draft echoes the sentiments of its
2003 report.
The Senate interim report is more or
less in sync with both of those.
The Council has even presented the
idea of "a state water czar" one who
would have full oversight on statewide
demands and water supply.
"This would change the whole face of
the water management in the state,"
said Kirk Webster, deputy executive di-
rector for the Suwannee River Water
Management District. "It would modify
the whole management structure."
The Council's 2003 report suggested
ways to "ensure an adequate water sup-


ply to sustain the environment and ac-
commodate forecasted population
growth demands" throughout the state.
That same year, Lee Arnold, the
leader of the Council of 100 study
group, called the Suwannee River re-
gion "the Saudi Arabia of water."
That statement never sat well with
Suwannee River Water Management
District officials. In fact, Webster says
it's simply "inaccurate."
"Once you take into account the
needs of our natural water system -
our rivers and springs there is no
Saudi Arabia-like supply in North Flori-
da."
He said any modifications made to lo-
cal waterways "could have a detrimen-
tal effect depending on changes to the
nature system."
The original September 2003 Council
report stated that "South Florida con-
sumes 50 percent of the fresh water
used in Florida," although that number


may have changed. "Current demands
for public water supplies in this region
are greater than demands for public sup-
plies in 39 individuals states."
The Council concluded that "Florida
needs to refocus its management of wa-
ter supply efforts to sustain the environ-
ment and meet forecasted population
growth demands."
Webster said the the focus should be
more on water conservation, reuse, de-
salination, and reservoir construction,
than on drawing water from North
Florida. That's the premise behind the
"Local Sources First" law established
by state legislators in 1998, which urges
counties and cities to exhaust all rea-
sonable possibilities for water within
their borders before attempting to get it
from somewhere outside their bound-
aries.
"There's a lot of solutions out there,"
Webster said. "We could all do a better
job of water conservation."


again
He, along with the SRWMD govern-
ing board, strongly oppose sending wa-
ter, particularly from the Suwannee,
down to south Florida.
"The governing board has consistent-
ly been opposed to transfer of water out
of this area. That's consistent with the
desires of the citizens of the water man-
agement district," Webster said.
He, and others, worry about the ef-
fects the council's suggestions could
have upon the livelihood of North Flori-
da residents.
"A lot of our lifestyle in North Flori-
da is based on our rivers, lakes and
streams. Who's going to decide what's
fair? That's what they're trying to create
with the Council of 100," Webster said.
The Council's latest draft will be the
topic of discussion at a Council meeting
later this month. In the meantime, local
water district leaders remain steadfast,
poised and ready for whatever may
come flowing their way.

or another, have taken on
the roles of idea genera-
tors, interviewers and
show hosts to broadcast
topics of interest from
around SHS and through-
out Live Oak.
"We have different peo-
ple hosting each week, so
we all can get a grade.
We're all contributing to
the show," Manns said.
The Internet podcast is
usually divided into sever-
al short segments such as
the Bulldog Minute, Word
at Suwannee High
(W.A.S.H), In the Know,
Profile of the Week, Most
Valuable Dog (MVD),
public service announce-
ments, and show extras.
This week students
were focused on complet-
ing Volume 9 of their sec-
ond season.
The idea for the Internet
show came from shear


student ingenuity and wit,
Johnson explained.
"There's been a televi-
sion production program
here for years, but it was
all analog and captured on
VHS tape," he said. "We
took a lightning hit about
three years ago and all our
equipment went kaput. It
just gave up the ghost."
Since then, the school
has conducted its regular
morning program over the
school intercom system.
"We don't have a closed
circuit system to do news
morning broadcasts, so
they do it like in the 50s,
over the PA.," Johnson
said.
But that could one day
change.
With the elimination of
the school's theater pro-
gram last year, residual
funds were transferred to
the online venture, John-
son said.
At that time, students
began using a donated
handheld camera to shoot
footage and an old Macin-
tosh computer to edit and
post their work online.

ment about bullying. Photo: Carnell Hawthorne Jr.


The class has since up-
graded to two newer Macs


and several handheld digi-
tal cameras.

"Students choose their
own subject matter," John-
son said. "They go through
a process of storyboard-
ing, setting appointments,
conducting interviews and
filming on location. They
then download their
footage from the cameras
to the computers and use
film making editing soft-
ware to put their segments
together."
The entire process is
done from start to finish at
hardly any cost.
"You can download to
YouTube up to 10 minutes
for free. Anything over
that and you have to have
a membership," Johnson
said. "Our expense is phe-
nomenal. We really don't
have any, except for bat-
teries for the microphone
and money for DVDs to
make copies of the show."
The real payoff, howev-
er, is students' sense of ac-


complishment at the end
of the day.
"We get a lot of feed-
back," said senior Jake
Hayes. "I had someone
come up to me and say
they've watched all the
episodes and really
thought they were awe-
some."
The show averages
about 300 Web hits per
episode.
Johnson says that's what
the program is really
about.
"Our students have to
compete with other
schools that are more tech-
nologically equipped. We
have to scramble here to
compete," Johnson said.
"All I can give my stu-
dents is experience and
imagination. That's pretty
much what we live on
here. I think the product
speaks for itself."

Dot McGee is pain-free after surgery to treat a pinched nerve in her neck.


Valdosta, Georgia resident
Dot McGee had pain so bad in
her arm and shoulder that she
would often wake up "crying
like a baby," she said.
Dot said she went to three
different doctors and none of them
could diagnose her condition.
Fortunately, her fourth trip to
the doctor was to the Hughston
Clinic in Valdosta where she
saw an orthopaedic spine surgeon
who correctly diagnosed that
Dot had a herniated disc in her
neck. The ruptured disc was
"pinching" a nerve that stretched
from Dot's neck to her upper
extremities. Hence, the terrible
pain in her arm and shoulder.


Dot had surgery at Jack
Hughston Memorial Hospi-
tal to fix her condition. The
relief from the pain was
immediate, she said.
"If you have to have
surgery, that's the place to be,"
said Dot, who has five adult
children and eight grandchil-
dren. "It was the best hospital
experience I've ever had.
The people are so pleasant
and everybody made me feel
so comfortable."
Dot said she has a new
appreciation for Hughston.
"I will tell everybody that's
where they need to go.
They are the best."

County will comply

with Red Flag Rule
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

Suwannee County Coordinator Murphy McLean said
the county will soon be in compliance with a new law
designed to help prevent identity theft.
McLean told commissioners Tuesday that new Red
Flag Rules were to be in place Nov. 1, 2008, but the
county has yet to meet its obligations. The federal gov-
ernment passed the Fair and Accurate Credit Transac-
tions Act (FACT) of 2003 to ensure that all businesses
that extend credit to implement written identity theft
prevention programs.
McLean said the county can fulfill that objective by
simply training personnel that deal with customer ac-
counts.
"It's basically just a training that needs to be done,"
said McLean. "We're just trying to make sure we're
compliant."
McLean said FACT will affect only a couple of de-
partments, including EMS, which sometimes extends
credit to patients who cannot immediately pay for ser-
vices.

The manager of the
apartments and Al Dal-
ton's daughter, Sadie Dal-
ton, said they were sur-
prised by CSX's demand.
"My father and I were
shocked and dismayed
when CSX Transportation
informed us that we must
demolish the entrance to
our home, our business
and livelihood as well as
this local, historic land-
mark by November 20,
2009," said Apartment
Manager Sadie Dalton in a
letter to the Suwannee
County Commission. "To
be given no alternatives
and told we had less than
one month to comply is
unreasonable."
The Blue Lodge was


built in 1937 as a place for
motorists and locals alike
to go for food and rest.
The crossing to the lodge
was constructed 12 years
earlier.
Sadie Dalton said in the
letter that CSX had re-
quested the closing of the
crossing in 2007, but she
and Al Dalton refused,
based in part on the histor-
ical significance of the
lodge to the community. A
preliminary application to
have the site listed on the
National Register of His-
toric Places was approved
earlier this year and a tour
is scheduled by the
Suwannee Historical Mu-
seum Nov. 21.
Sadie also told commis-

give them, but you'll often
see them standing up in
plain sight, or ignoring
your orders altogether!
This results in them dying
at the hands of the reason-
ably smart enemy A.I.,
which leads you to having
to heal them periodically.
Honestly, the best way to
play the campaign is with
four friends over Live,
PSN or broadband.
I cannot stress how
much work Codemasters
went into making each and
every gun feel as unique
and realistic as they do in
real life. They perform just
as they would in real life,
and even sound much like
they would as well. This
same dedication to a realis-
tic experience also went
into the animations; Code-
masters even went so far as
to motion-capture real life
soldiers to make each ani-
mation look real!
Finally we come to mul-
tiplayer; which has two
different modes currently:
Annihilation and Infiltra-
tion. Annihilation is essen-
tially team deathmatch
with players controlling
their own squads of three;
unfortunately, these three
squadmates have the stupid
A.I. that plagues the cam-
paign which inevitably
leads them to being cannon
fodder. Infiltration fares
better, though, tasking
players to work together to
achieve an objective. This
leads to hours upon hours
of tactically fun shooting,
provided your team com-
municates and performs
well together.
So there you have it.


Dragon Rising brings real-
ism back, but not with as
big a bang as fans were
hoping for. Out of the three
systems you can get the
game for, I recommend it
most for the PC since you
get an added in Mission
Editor which allows you to
create your own missions.
Those of you stuck on con-
soles, though, don't worry.
Dragon Rising provides
plenty of tactical shooting
and strategy, earning itself
a B.

SPORTS


Small-town




success stoi


By Buddy C.'1i:;,..
CoachesAid.com contributor

Reprinted with permission
Veteran North Florida coach Bill Wiles
knows all about the small-town pleasures
of coming back home. He tasted high
school football's big time as an assistant
coach at Georgia powerhouse Lowndes
County and relished the intensity of Fri-
day night big-school showdowns match-
ing the Vikings with the likes of fabled
crosstown rival Valdosta.
But when his wife of 20 years, Melissa,
became pregnant with their first child,
Wiles knew when it was time to bring her
back to family.
Wiles is quite content in his fourth year
as head coach at Branford, which sits on
the banks of the Suwannee River about 50
miles northwest of Gainesville. Proud that
his Buccaneers (6-1) achieved one of their
preseason goals last week when they
clinched their third consecutive season
with a better than .500 record. Branford,
often overmatched over the years, hadn't
strung together three winning seasons in a
row since 1979-81.
But what Wiles sounds most proud of
this year is that the star of his tight-knit
team of country boys is a senior who
showed he also shares an appreciation of
what down home means.
John Perry, a dominating back in Bran-
ford's old-school wing-T and single-wing
scheme, was tempted last spring with the
idea of leaving his hometown to play for a
spread offense somewhere that could
showcase his potential as a wide receiver
to college scouts. Maybe he would cross
the river and play for Branford's rival,
Mayo Lafayette, which has historically
dominated the Bucs. Maybe he would
find a bigger school that tossed the ball
around the yard.
"There was a point where I thought he
was gone," Wiles acknowledges. "He had
pretty much made up his mind that if he
wanted to go to college he needed to be
somewhere people could see him catch
the ball a lot. I told him I loved him and if
he really believed it was going to enhance
his future, then I was going to wish him
nothing but the best. He's a great kid."
Branford coach Bill Wiles is pretty hap-
py that star running back John Perry
stayed at the school. (Photo from Bran-
ford High School)
But Perry, one of the few black students
at Branford, couldn't tear himself away.
Not from boys he had known all his life,
not from a school where his aunt teaches,
not from the coach who sometimes
dropped by with his wife and baby boy


Patterson to ask John if he wanted to
come along for a dinner out.
"About two weeks before we started
practice, here comes John, and he said,
'Coach, I can't do it. I was raised my
whole life in Branford. Coach, you've
been like a daddy to me. I don't want to
play my senior year somewhere else.' "
The rest is history that is still happen-
ing. With Perry playing with a renewed
passion, Branford's team of 25 players is
enjoying one of the best seasons its town
has seen since the school's glory days of
the 1970s which included a 38-game
regular-season winning streak.
Branford, which plays an independent
schedule that includes longstanding rivals
like Bell, Trenton and Lafayette, scored a
63-24 homecoming victory over Bronson
(1-7) last week with Perry unleashing
three big plays before Wiles harnessed his
workhorse. The 6-1, 190-pound senior
opened the scoring with a 60-yard punt
return for a touchdown and scored a pair
of TDs covering a total of 154 yards on
his first two carries before Wiles started
compassionately substituting in a game
that was 36-0 after one quarter.
It was the same story in a 52-7 win at
Florida Deaf earlier this season. Perry
broke a 92-yard kickoff return early but
then mostly blocked and tackled while
teammates took turns getting the touches.
He's not worried about padding his stats.
"My goal now is to win out the rest of
our games and go to a bowl game, hope-
fully," Perry said Wednesday morning.
When Wiles, who coached Graceville to
the Class 1A state championship in 1993,
has needed Perry, he has delivered. Perry
rushed for 300-plus yards twice in Bran-
ford's first five games and was right at
1,000 yards by midseason. He rambled for
321 and scored all four of his team's
touchdowns in a Week 2 28-13 win at
Trenton and came up huge when the Bucs
battled for a 33-26 win over Jacksonville
Paxon.
"To be honest with you, John played
with pretty much no passion, no emotion
the past two years," Wiles said. "That was
after he played like gangbusters for us at
cornerback as a ninth grader. But it's like
the light went back on this year. He's do-
ing whatever I ask him to do and he's
playing his tail off. This whole team gives
us great effort, but John is our bell-cow.
No doubt about that."
Wiles believes Perry is determined to
prove to himself and others that one of the
two-lane roads that runs through Branford
can get him to college football. He has a
chance to be the school's first signee since
Wiles came back to be an assistant to

Steve Brown six years ago.
"Whoever offers me, really," Perry said
of his college hopes. "I just want to go to
college and play."
"I'm getting a whole lot of interest
from I-AA, D-II type of people, and I'll
be severely disappointed if he doesn't get
something," Wiles said. "I believe he will.
John is a full academic qualifier. I know
Carson-Newman likes him as a wide re-
ceiver. Some of the other schools see him
as a strong safety. I took him down to
USF's invite-only camp last summer, and
it looked to me like he competed toe-to-
toe."
Wiles will do whatever he can to get
Perry's name out there, and Perry will
give it his all for a team that concludes its
regular season with challenging games,
starting Friday night at high-scoring St.
Joseph's Academy (6-1) of St. Augustine.
The Bucs play at Bell (2-5) on Nov. 6,
then finish Nov. 13 at home against
Lafayette (5-2), which blanked the Bucs
35-0 last season and has been state-ranked
in 1B this year.
Whatever happens, Perry said finishing
what he started as a 5-year-old playing for
Branford's Little Bucs Pop Warner pro-
gram has worked out just fine.


"Coach Wiles is a good man," Perry
said. "He taught us everything we know.
He taught us how to be men."

COMMENTARY


The Duke


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
Continued From Page 1B

Duke," as the song goes. He
got last billing. It is kind of
like saying Carlton was
second fiddle to Koufax and
Spahn. The company is not
bad.
Duke Snider hit four
homeruns in the 1952 and
1955 World Series, then a
National League record.
When he retired his 11
homeruns over six World
Series was the best in
National League history. The
World Series, however, was
not his only legacy.
Before hitting 40 homeruns
was commonplace, Babe
Ruth was and is the only
player to hit 40 or more
homers over a seven-year
period. When Snider retired
in 1964 he was the only
National Leaguer to hit 40 or
more homers over a five-year
period. Ruth was the A.L.
leader, Snider the N.L. Snider
hit his 400th homer as a New
York Met in the Polo
Grounds. At the time it put
him in the top ten. He would
finish with 407.
The Silver Fox retired a
Giant but will always be
remembered as a Dodger. A
lifetime .295 hitter, he is also
the only National Leaguer to
score over 120 runs three
consecutive seasons. In 1953
and 1954 he was a Triple
Crown contender finishing in
the top five in all three
categories.
So as the World Series
concludes and you hear tales
of Reggie Jackson, remember
the Duke because by now
we've all forgotten ... "Willie,
Mickey and The Duke."


Florida Fish Busters' Bulletin




Common carp is both exotic and common


November 2009
Bob Wattendorf

Common, yet exotic; snubbed, yet revered
- the common carp is truly an oxymoron.
They are native to other countries and were
stocked here by people. Many Florida an-
glers disdain them, but they also have some
dedicated aficionados.
They evolved in the Caspian Sea and ex-
panded their range naturally to the Black
and Aral seas and west to the Danube River
in Germany. That all sounds pretty exotic to
me and not at all common.
As one of the earliest fish to be cultured,
carp were a major staple in Eurasian diets
and among the most genetically modified
fish species ever. Monks selectively bred
variants, called mirror carp or the nearly
scale-less leather carp, that were easier to
prepare for the table. In the 1820s, the
Japanese began breeding beautifully color-
ful koi, with fancy flowing fins and other
genetically selected features, which sold for
thousands of dollars apiece. One famous
scarlet koi lived for 226 years from 1751 to
1977.
Although stories vary, it seems most cred-
ible that five common carp from Germany
were imported into the United States in
1872 for commercial purposes. In 1877, the
U.S. Fish Commission imported additional
carp from Germany, and for 20 years or so
stocked the species as a harvestable food
fish throughout most of the United States.
More recently, introductions of common
carp resulted from use of juvenile carp as
bait fish.
Within Florida, common carp are known
to be breeding only in the Apalachicola and
Ochlockonee rivers in North Florida, where
they are found in diverse habitats, from
steep natural banks to gentle banks and near
dike fields, sand disposal areas, rocky out-
crops and backwater sloughs. They are not
nearly as abundant in Florida as most other
states, possibly because of our short, mild
winters. Isolated collections of common
carp in South Florida are believed to be the
result of released bait; however, use of carp
for bait in Florida is illegal.


In the United States today, the common
carp is often regarded as a pest fish, because
of its tendency to destroy vegetation and in-
crease water turbidity. Adults feed by suck-
ing up bottom silt, and selectively removing
insect larvae, crustaceans, snails and other
small food items; and organic debris (muck)
itself may be an important component of the
diet.
Because they have been present since the
first fisheries population surveys, any im-
pact on native fishes would be difficult to
determine. Having been established for so
long, common carp would be virtually im-
possible to eliminate.
In Europe, they are eagerly sought by an-
glers, because they are difficult to hook, and
put up a tough fight. According to some ac-
counts, the only European sport fish more
popular are Atlantic salmon and rainbow
trout.
In the United States, groups, such as the
Carp Anglers Group and American Carp So-
ciety, have sprung up to promote sportfish-
ing for common carp.
Pavel Hastik of Florida took third place in
the Summer TOKS Big Four International
(www.bigfourcarp.com) by landing four
carp weighing a total of 100.06 lbs. He
caught these carp from the Apalachicola
River, the heaviest weighing 28 lbs. The
Florida record is 40.56 pounds, and IGFA
reports the world record was caught in
France and weighed 75.69 pounds.
If you decide to angle for them, the best
baits include dough balls, canned corn,
bread crusts and worms fished on the bot-
tom. They are classified as nongame fish, so
there are no bag or size limits, although a li-
cense (or legal exemption) is required, and
you should not release any alive. Use 2.0-
6.0 hooks, with a sinker and no float; typi-
cally start with your bail open if you are us-
ing a spinning reel and be prepared for a
long run and strong fight. Other sportsmen
pursue carp using bowfishing techniques. In
North Florida, this is legal using crossbow
or bow and arrow from a boat or from
shore, except at the spillways of the Jim
Woodruff Dam on the Apalachicola River.
Night bowfishing tournaments with lights
are popular and do not require a permit.

tournament finish. Photo: FWC

Carp are very tasty; in fact, they are con-
sidered a delicacy in many countries. How-
ever, they have two rows of small, floating
bones above and below the lateral line.
Breaking the floating bones by either scor-
ing the fillet or grinding it up is important to
making your meal enjoyable. Boiling,
smoking or barbecuing are popular methods
of cooking them.
So the name may be common, but
nonetheless they are exotic and fascinating
fishes.

RELIGION


How


late?


By David H. Matier
Doctor of Pastoral
C ,, .. l;,
dmatier@windstream.net

"Hath a nation changed
their gods which are yet no
gods? But my people have
changed their glory for that
which doth not profit. Be
astonished, 0 ye heavens,
at this, and be horribly
afraid, be ye very desolate,
saith the Lord. For my
people have committed two
evils; they have forsaken
me the fountain of living
waters, and hewed them
out cisterns, broken
cisterns, that can hold no
water." (Jeremiah 2:11-13).
What kind of trade has
been made? The early
settlers, such as those who
came on the Mayflower,
came searching for a place
where they could worship
the Lord God without
being persecuted by some
state church. They were
people who put God first in
their lives the Bible was
the primary book in their
schools. The early settlers
didn't want to be told by a
particular church what
doctrine they must believe
but wanted the freedom to
read and interpret the Bible
for themselves. They were
men and women of high
moral and ethical
character; living holy and
sanctified lives. Their
churches were a central
part of their lives. The
communities were built
around the church (this is
still evident in the small
villages in New England
where the old churches still
stand in the center of the
quaint towns). All of the
great universities were
established by Bible
believing men only to be
taken over by those who
would rather have nothing
to do with the Bible in our
day!
What kind of trade has
been made by the United
States? Has America traded
that which made her
special and unique for that
which is unprofitable?
Many Americans have
turned their backs on God
and have tried to find
answers elsewhere: in
education, employment,
money (I Timothy 6:10),
the cults (Humanism -
declared a religion in 1963,


Spiritualism, Modernism,
to just scratch the surface)
and everything but the
truths of God's Word "For
the time will come when
they will not endure sound
doctrine; but after their
own lusts shall they heap to
themselves teachers,
having itching ears;" (II
Timothy 4:3). This is the
time! A large portion of the
people that attend church
regularly are more
interested in getting out to
go to the local buffet than
they are about what the
preacher is saying! What's
the message from God
today needs to be the
mindset of God's people -
America needs to hear
from God! America needs
revival!
What's being seen in
America and all around the
world is a confirmation of
the Word of God. It
declares the nearness of
His coming. Things that the
prophets could have never
imagined but told us about
are beginning to happen. A
world wide identification
mark (666) may have been
impossible to imagine at
one time but it's not
today! A cashless society is
practically here already. All
of the horrible things you
witness in the news and see
on the streets all around
you, though ulpcllillii.
should be encouraging
because they should tell
you that the coming of
Jesus is getting closer. It's
sort of like the little girl
who was laying in her bed
listening every hour to her
family's grandfather clock
because she couldn't sleep.
When it got to 11 p.m. it
chimed once, twice,...10
times, 11 times, 12, 13, 14,
15, 16, 17, and when it
chimed for the 18 time she
hurried into her parents'
bedroom and woke up her
parents and said, "Mom,
Dad, it's later than it's ever
been before!"
Dr. John Walvoord said,
"I have been studying
prophecy for many years
(over 50), and while I do
not believe it is possible to
set dates for the Lord's
return, I do sense in the
world today an
unprecedented time of
world crises that can be
interpreted as being
preparatory for the coming
of the Lord. If there ever
was a time when Christians
should live every day as
though Christ could come
at any time, it is today."
Jesus said, "But of that
day and hour knoweth no
man, no, not the angels of
heaven, but my Father
only, But as the days of
Noe were, so shall also the
coming of the Son of man
be" (Matthew 24:36, 37)
Brother, Sister it is later
then it has ever been
before!

The trials a


of the chrc

By James L. Snyder

All through my formative years my father and other
authority figures railed quite mercilessly against what
they called being lazy. According to them, laziness was
about as close to the unpardonable sin as a human
could possibly get without being burned by hell's blaze.
The lesson for me was, "With all thy ;.-c'lii.. get as far
away from laziness as possible."
These authority figures backed up their opinions
about laziness with a fervor of work bordering on the
frenzy. Just suggest that perhaps they were leaning to-
wards, just a little bit lazy, and boy, would they explode
in a ferocity of work leaving everybody in their smoke.
They will even work on their day off.
Instead of relaxing and having fun, these lazy-chal-
lenged people spend all their time and energy working
zealously as though everything depended upon them
getting something done on time.
One of the great sayings of these lazy-challenged
people is, "If the Devil finds a man idle, he'll set him at
work." This, as everybody knows is an old Scottish
proverb. The meaning is quite simple. If you do not
find something to fill your mind, the devil will fill it for
you.
Now here is the problem as I see it. All of these au-
thority figures are confusing the issue. "Lazy," and
"idle," are not synonymous. Someone may have a very
idle mind while his hands are busy doing something.
Moreover, the lazy person may have a mind more ac-
tive than other people, but with his hands folded on his
lap.
Being idle is one thing but being lazy is something
altogether different.
There is another saying not quite as popular but goes
something like this, "If you want something done
quickly and efficiently find a lazy man to do it."
A man with an idle mind is someone who is not do-
ing anything productive but wasting a lot of time and
energy doing it. And I can see why this could be a very
tempting sphere of operation for the devil. If anybody
sees an empty workshop with some fine machinery but
nobody is working it, the temptation is to help yourself.
Nothing is more unnerving than seeing something go to
waste. An idle man, however, does not care about those
things.
A lazy man is rather different. He refuses to waste
:Iir, Iiliii-. especially energy, particularly his own. To
compare this lazy man with the lazy-challenged man is
quite an eye-opener.
The lazy-challenged person wastes more energy and
accomplished less than any other category of man. With
such a fear of being labeled lazy, they will spin their
wheels frantically and accomplish precious little to


show for their effort.
Activity, yes. Lots of it.
So much so that their
smoke gets in your eyes.
On the other hand, the

nd triumphs


)nically lazy

lazy person takes a different approach to the matter at
hand. Before cranking up into full work mode, he sits
down to ponder the whole matter and plans his strategy.
Thinking is his specialty.
One thing a lazy man knows is this, some things if
put off long enough do not have to be done at all. This
is a great savings of energy in the long run. Other peo-
ple would frantically try to accomplish and finish
everything that comes across their desk immediately.
The curse of "immediately," is that very few things
need to be done immediately. Somehow, people have
gotten the weird notion that if something needs to be
done; it needs to be done immediately. But most things
are like a fine wine. It takes a lot of aging before it is
ready to drink. I like what a great actor once said, "We
will sell no wine before its time." The lazy man's ver-
sion is, "I will do no work before it's time." Then pray
that it's time never comes.
Some things done immediately only create more
work. It is a discerning man (lazy man) who knows
what needs to be done and what does not have to be
done at all. Those people who are greatly allergic to be-
ing called lazy are afraid not to do something, while the
lazy man is quite content to let some things go undone.
One more thing about a lazy man. Before he will do
:Ill,\ Ilil-. he will try to figure out the quickest and easi-
est way to do it without spending a lot of energy or
time. He guards his energy as an old miser guards his
coins at night.
The lazy person is not intimidated by activity. How-
ever, he has that deep-seated satisfaction of knowing
that he may not do everything but what he does do he
does as effortlessly as possible.
Peter, the angler turned apostle, understood this idea
of leisurely casting your life upon the Lord. "Casting all
your care upon him; for he careth for you" (1 Peter 5:7
KJV).
Even Jesus understood this when he said, "Come
unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I
will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of
me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find
rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my bur-
den is light" (Matthew 11:28-30 KJV).
The essence of wisdom is this; do not do for yourself
what has already been done for you. Very simply put,
Jesus has done it all for you.

Protect your heart


In the opening scene of
the movie "Hope Floats,"
Sandra Bullock's character
finds out that her husband
is having an affair and
wants a divorce. On na-
tional television.
Even in a movie, that
level of humiliation is hard
to witness, and even harder
to endure. Humiliation oc-
curs when someone's self-
respect or dignity is dam-
aged, and nothing does a
better job than rejection.
The hard truth remains that
rejection is a fact of life
and even when we don't
understand it, rejection has
the potential to free us up
for better things. New op-
portunities and healthier
relationships are just a few
examples of how rejection
is not the worst thing that
can happen to us.
Flip that over to the oth-
er side. Who have you re-
jected? An even better
question might be how did
you reject them? I was
talking with a group of
teenage girls recently, and


Heart

Matters
By Angie Land


one of the girls had noth-
ing but complaints about
her current boyfriend. Cu-
rious, I asked the obvious
question, "If you feel that
way, why don't you break
up with him?" Her reply
was one I have heard of-
ten: "Oh no, I can't break
up with him, it would hurt
his feelings." Clearly, she
was rejecting him. He was
just the only one who did-
n't know it. We definitely


need a new perspective.
Dating is the bridge be-
tween being single and the
covenant of being married.
It is the place to work
through issues and gives
the opportunity to build re-
lationship skills. Unless
you are planning to marry
the first person you date,
you will at some point ei-
ther be rejected or be the
rejecter. While no one en-
joys being rejected, often
being the rejecter can
prove to be the most diffi-
cult. In their book, "The
Art of Rejection," authors
Michael and Hayley Di-
Marco explain, "People
tell us one of the major
reasons they're spending a
lot of time thinking about
a breakup before the actual
breakup is that they are
trying to figure out how to
defend their reasons, if you
have a sense that you want
out of the relationship, go
with that. Don't be afraid
of hurting the other per-
son's feelings, because you
are not in control of how


When you look out the win-
dow, you probably see trees,
bushes and sometimes birds
eating wild seeds or berries.
But what if you go outside and
look about? Do you see ants
crawling on the ground? Maybe
a butterfly sitting on a flower?
Did you know there are many
kinds of animals you cannot see
unless you look really hard?
All sorts of animals big
and small live in your back-
yard. Some fly, some crawl,
some jump and some slither.
They live under rocks, logs and
leaves; up in bushes or trees;
near water; and in holes in
the ground and cracks in your
house.
For your first Backyard
Safari, look under a plant's
leaves, especially if they look
as if something chewed on
them. This is where caterpillars
hang out. They look like worms
with many legs. Some caterpil-
lars look hairy and others are
smooth. Caterpillars change
into pretty butterflies or moths.
Leaves hide caterpillars from
birds that might want to eat
them for lunch.
Unless you know what kind
of caterpillar you are looking at,
do not touch it. Sometimes the
ones that look furry are prickly.
They could be poisonous.


Ask an adult to help you turn
over a log or large stone (be sure
to turn the log toward you in case
there is a snake hiding under-
neath). It is not hard to find a
beetle because there are many
different ones. In fact, they are
the largest group of insects on
Earth. Look for the bugs with bit-
ing mouths and hard front wings
that protect them.
Some beetles help people by
using their jaws to eat tiny crit-
ters that chew on flowers or dine
on vegetable gardens. Other bee-
tles are pests because they eat the
food people grow.
Beetles lay their eggs in dead,
fallen trees or logs. When you
turned the log over, did you also
see tiny white, squishy "worms"
wriggling around? These grubs
are baby beetles. Other animals
and bugs that call logs and fallen
trees home are pill bugs (roly-po-
lies), ants, salamanders, lizards,
frogs, earthworms, termites and
centipedes.

movement. Make a monthly list of
animals in your yard. See if you
can name each one. Maybe draw
a picture of them. If you have a
magnifying glass, that will help
you find and describe the tiny
creatures. By writing down what
you see every month, you will
learn when Florida animals are
the busiest.
Be a safe backyard detective
and never pick up animals unless
an adult is with you. Never pick
up a spider. Spiders bite, and
a few are poisonous to people.
Remember to return anything
collected for study to its home.
Happy critter hunting!

they will react. You are
only in control of your
own life. In the end, break-
ing it off at the first sign of
serious trouble will be
much better than letting it
linger until it becomes
more and more painful to
break up."
In Proverbs 4:23, the
Bible instructs us to
"Guard your heart with all
diligence, for out of if is
the wellspring of life."
Guarding your heart
doesn't mean that you
break up over a simple dif-
ference of opinion, but
rather that you investigate
your feelings. If you real-
ize that your feelings have


changed, you begin to feel
trapped in the relationship
or start to dread spending
time together, its time to
break it off, before you
head towards marriage!
There are also a few red
flags that you need to pay
attention to even if your
feelings aren't the prob-
lem: abuse, lies and cheat-
ing. These are not relation-
ship problems, they are
character problems that
will continue to worsen in
a relationship where they
are tolerated. Get out now,
there is much more at
stake than hurt feelings.
Healthy relationships make
you both better. So keep


By Derek Maul
Here around Tampa the fall is
long overdue, so Monday's long
walk with Scout felt especially
refreshing at around 65 degrees
and clear. It was, however, one
of those cobweb mornings. I
took pretty much everything I
have to free my mind and my
spirit from a low-hanging cloud
that's been difficult to shake.
There's the key word: "Difficult". For
too many of us, spirituality is either easy
or it is non-existent; pick one and get on
with it. Maybe we hear too many
misleading messages about faith; perhaps
we live in an entitlement culture where
results are everything and the journey is
optional at best; my guess is we're
dealing with a potent combination of the
two.
But the net effect is a tendency to
engage our spiritual lives this way: "Fill
me with warm, fuzzy feelings, right now,
or I'll look elsewhere for my
satisfaction."
So this morning I had to fight for my
peace, wrangle for my assurance, choose
to believe in spite of the distance I felt
from God, and pretty much apply the
practice of a devotional orientation
regardless of the disinterest my gut-level
response suggested.
Bottom line: When I only launch my
new day in a faith-oriented direction
when I already feel faith-oriented in my
heart then the entire point of engaging
the journey is lost! This pilgrim path and
I really am a "Pilgrim in Progress" is

more about my decision to move
forward than it is about
achieving a constant "God-
moment" in my heart.
Sure, those "God-moments"
are more likely to show up when
Swe are moving in the correct
direction. But that's not why we
do it. We move forward because
we are faithful; we move forward
because we understand that real, soul-
level, peace is neither shallow nor is it
cheap; we move forward because that is
what a pilgrim does.
"Moving away from part-time Christian
status is not one decision but a series of
decisions, sometimes several times a day.
This journey is a cradle-to-grave
adventure, an ongoing challenge, and the
process likely didn't begin in one
definitive moment. Pilgrimage is driven
by movement forward and circling back
- full with amazing possibility and the
promise of reinvention." (Derek Maul,
