Attempted murder conviction overturned


Henry Lamb to
get a new trial

By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com

The 25-year prison sentence
handed down to Henry L. Lamb
for the attempted first degree mur-


der of his daughter, attempted sec-
ond degree murder of another
daughter, and assault against his
granddaughter has been overturned
by the district court of appeals, ac-
cording to court documents.
Judge David W. Fina reversed
Lamb's sentence Thursday in a
Live Oak courtroom.
Court documents show Lamb


was granted a retri-

his original trial in
July 2008. The ap-

Sixty-four years later, Henry "Hank" Hodek of
Live Oak still has vivid memories of his fighter
pilot days during World War II.
"Time has taken its toll. There's only a couple
of us left in the squadron. But some of the things
that happened in World War II I can never for-
get," said the 85-year-old Hodek. Born in Orlan-
do, Hodek said his interest was planes and fly-
ing.
"It was my interest growing up as a boy," said
Hodek.
He would construct planes from kits and even
built some of his own scale models out of balsa
wood.
Hodek enlisted in the Army in 1942 right after
high school. In May of '44 he found himself in
England as a replacement fighter pilot. The fol-
lowing month, just two days before D-Day, he
received his assignment. He would fly with the
412th Fighter Squadron of the 373rd Fighter
Group. Hodek piloted both P-40 and P-47 Thun-
derbolts, he said.

The two entrance towers at the Village Inn Apart-
ments, formerly known as Blue Lodge, are not on
CSX Transportation property and do not have to be
removed, as reported in Friday's Democrat. CSX
and the previous owners of the Blue Lodge had an
agreement allowing portions of a wall to be built on
the railroad's right of way. That agreement was re-
cently terminated by CSX and the current owners
have until Nov. 20 to move the wall.

WELLBORN NEWS



The General




Mercantile Store


By Wendell Snowden
So many times, I have
said, "I wonder when that
old building was first
built. What was it used
for, and who built it?"
Sound familiar? Then we
drive on down the road
and never give it a second
thought.
Well, let me tell you
about one of those
buildings. This old
building was built in 1884
by A.W. McLeran Sr.,
when the Wellborn
population was about 150.
It was first used as the
General Mercantile Store
serving Wellborn and


surrounding areas. The
store is on the north side
of 4th Avenue, just west of
CR 137. One interesting
fact that many Suwannee
County folks might not
know, is that the building
was a one-story building
from 1884 until 1894, at
which time the second
floor was added. The
lumber for the store was
purchased from the Camp
Lumber Company of
White Springs for $8 per
1,000 board feet. When
the store was opened,
cotton was grown
extensively in this section
of the county. Mr.


McLeran engaged in the
buying and selling of
cotton, so he simply
exchanged cotton for the
amount owed on the
lumber.
Facing the front of the
store and to the east, sat
the Wellborn Bank built
by E.B. McLeran, A.W.'s
brother, in 1910. Next to
the bank was the first post
office in the area called
"Little River." Mail came
by train instead of
stagecoach. The mail was
suspended from a pole in a
canvas sack and the

SEE THE GENERAL, PAGE 11A


In 1941, when the
Wellborn School
burned down, the
McLerans allowed
the school to hold
classes on the
second floor of
their store. I also
learned that in
1962, several
convicts escaped
from prison and
made their way to
Wellborn where
they burrowed
underneath the
Mercantile Store,
cut a hole in the
floor and stole
clothing. They were
later captured.

November community fundraising campaign report
luncheon at the PCS Conference Center at noon on

speak about their observations.
These students are Amber Laftoon, a freshman;

about the services offered by this United Way affiliated
agency which strengthens our community by building
strong families through counseling, education,
prevention activities and community partnership
efforts. The agency provides temporary shelter, time
out and counseling for youth ages 10-17 who are
ungovernable, truant or runaways.
The caterer for the event will be the Blue Roof Grill,
which will serve a luncheon of baked ziti, baked
chicken, green beans, corn, red bliss potatoes, salad and
dressings, blueberry delight dessert, sweet and non-
sweet tea or water.
Representatives of the Target Distribution Center

employee giving campaign and share how this
facility's staff supports the community through both the
annual United Way campaign and the local distribution
center employees' many community service volunteer
projects.
Jill Adams, a member of the United Way of
Suwannee Valley Challengers' Club, the organization's
leadership donors, will speak about investing in our
community as a member of the Challengers' Club.

1-10 crash victim still critical


By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com

One of the passengers injured in a
single car accident Thursday
afternoon on I-10 near Live Oak
remained in critical condition
Tuesday at Shands UF, a hospital
spokesperson said.
Eleven-year-old Natalie Torres, of
Lake Butler, was the only person
involved in the accident still listed as
a patient at the hospital.
In addition, three others: Eliseo
Torres, 30, Stephanie Torres, 32, and
Imanuel Torres, 3, were all initially
lifeflighted to Shands Thursday.
Driver David Torres, 31, also of
Lake Butler, walked away from the
accident with minor injuries.
According to a Florida Highway
Patrol report, David Torres and


passengers were traveling at least 86
miles per hour east on I-10 in a 1989
station wagon when the vehicle began
to veer into the center median. The
vehicle then traveled approximately
171 feet into the median before
Torres attempted to swerve back to
the right in an attempt to re-enter the
roadway, according to FHP.
At that time, Torres oversteered to
the right, sending the vehicle into a
clockwise spin as the car re-entered
the highway, said FHP. The vehicle
traveled approximately 17 feet in a
southeasterly direction until it began
to overturn.
"The vehicle flipped about 10
times," said a witness at the scene
Thursday.
The vehicle rolled toward the
outside southernmost shoulder,
traveling 135 feet across the


pavement. The car entered the grassy
shoulder, continuing to overturn for
another 110 feet. It then struck a tree
with its front left, causing the vehicle
to rotate around the tree in a
clockwise manner, where it came to
rest on its right side facing northeast.
The aforementioned witness, who
would not give his name, watched as
the station wagon then caught fire.
"Half a dozen semi drivers stopped
and began putting out the fire with
their extinguishers," the man said.
Suwannee County Fire/Rescue,
Florida Department of Agricultural
officers and Florida Highway Patrol
all responded at the scene.
Torres stood on the roadside
Thursday, watching and praying as
each of the four passengers were
loaded into the awaiting helicopters
and transported to the hospital.


Reward offered


in Horton murder
Staff .
A $5,000 reward has been offered in l
the Lafayette County shooting death of
Thomas "Tommy" Horton. Horton was
shot and killed in his front yard while
walking toward his semi-truck to leave Tho
for work at about 5:45 on July 17. Thomas
Horton, who lived near the town of Day, Tommy
was a long time employee of Byrd's Hr
Logging, located near Branford.
Horton's wallet, which reportedly contained several
thousand dollars, was missing when his body was
discovered.
Lafayette County Sheriff Brian Lamb said leads and
persons of interest are being pursued. However, the
sheriff's office, Florida Department of Law
Enforcement and the State's Attorney Office need the
public's help as well in solving this murder. If you have
any information regarding this crime please contact the
Lafayette County Sheriff's Office at 386-294-1301.
Anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest
and a conviction, will be eligible for the $5000 reward.


County foresters

contain 35-acre fire
Staff
Firefighters from the Live Oak Forestry Center of the
Florida Division of Forestry on Friday contained a 35-acre
fire in planted pines in Suwannee County.
Three tractor-plows ran fire lines to contain the fire,
which was located west of CR 795 near Interstate 10.
When firefighters arrived on the scene, they estimated the
fire to be about 20 acres in size, but changing winds
caused the fire to spread by the time of containment. The
primary fuel was dead pine needles, which firefighters
said burn hot and spread quickly. The cause of the fire has
not been determined.
The Rangers on the ground were supported by a
Division of Forestry fixed-wing aircraft providing fire
intelligence and giving valuable direction to the
firefighters. Additional support was provided by
Suwannee County Fire Rescue and the Suwannee County
Volunteer Fire Department. The Florida Highway Patrol
was on scene on 1-10 and erected smoke hazard signs to
warn drivers of the possible visibility problems.
Although low humidity and favorable dispersion factors
will reduce the probability of smoke on the highway
tonight, the Florida Highway Patrol is encouraging
motorists to be aware of the possibility of limited visibility
when traveling through the area.
According to Glenn Davis, Operations Administrator of
the Suwannee Forestry Center, the lack of rain, low
humidity and gusty winds of the past several days has
increased the threat of wildfire in our area.
"Although this isn't considered our prime wildfire
season, everyone should still be very careful when
conditions are as dry as they have been lately," Davis said.

A veteran's


story

By Jim Holmes

in the news business, I've had the good for-
tune to interview several bona fide heroes.
I found each of their stories fascinating, but
none more so than that of an Army Reservist,
whom I met in South Florida back in the
1980s.
I will not give you his name, because part of
what he told me was "off the record." And yet
to me, that was the most compelling part of his
story, because while this man I will call
him Bobby was forced to do brutal acts in
order to save his companions, he never lost
touch with his humanity.
I was assigned to interview Bobby because
he had been awarded the Silver Star during his
Vietnam tour.
For those of you who are not familiar with
it, the Silver Star is the military's third highest
combat medal. Only the Medal of Honor and
the Distinguished Service Cross rank higher.
It is awarded for "gallantry in action" against
enemy combatants.
When given the assignment, I was also
handed a copy of the order awarding Bobby
the Silver Star and so as we sat down, I al-
ready knew many of the facts. It was a good
thing, because Bobby was not interested in
talking about the firefight in which he had
earned it. He had agreed to the interview only
because his sergeant had ordered him to be
there.
In a nutshell, Bobby had killed seven men
- two of them in hand to hand combat -
while taking out a Viet Cong machine gun nest
that had pinned down his platoon. He re-
sponded to virtually all my questions with an-
swers of "yes" and "no." Clearly, those fright-
ening minutes of brutal madness he had en-
dured were not memories he wanted to revisit
... and certainly not for a news story.
As I was wrapping up our interview, I asked
Bobby, "Was that your most memorable mo-
ment in Vietnam?" His answer surprised me
and it is here that he asked that our conversa-
tion be "off the record." He then proceeded to
tell me his most unforgettable moment in Viet-
nam was that of an enemy's life he did not
take.
Bobby told me he was hidden in dense jun-
gle undergrowth along a stream, when across
the way a guerilla soldier walked to the wa-
ter's edge, knelt and began to drink ... unaware
anyone was nearby. Bobby went on to explain
that there were a lot of Viet Cong in the area
and so taking this trooper prisoner was out of
the question. The other option was to kill him.
Bobby sighted in on the V-C with his weapon,
only to realize this enemy combatant was no
more than 12. "I just couldn't do it," he told
me.
Did he do the right thing or had Bobby sim-
ply made it possible for this enemy boy-war-
rior to kill other Americans? It is a haunting
question that will burden him forever. None
of us would want to be in his shoes.
Bobby's burden is just one more example of
why, on this Veterans Day, we should sincere-
ly thank all of those who were willing to step
forward and serve.

GUEST COLUMN


I'm going to cut
By Dwain Walden
Back on Oct. 26, a Northwest Airlines
flight flew over its intended landing spot
in Minneapolis by 150 miles before the
pilots recognized the error and turned
around.
The investigation is still under way
and much has been said about airline
safety since this event occurred just prior
to Halloween.
Now I've been giving this thing a lot of thought and quite
frankly, I don't see a really big issue.
First, let's consider that this plane was cruising at 650
miles per hour. So to make the round trip correction, we're
only talking about some 28 minutes off schedule, give or
take. And the plane eventually landed safely at the right air-
port.
By comparison, I've missed turns on the streets of Atlanta
and spent more time than that trying to correct myself. And
at 37,000 feet in the sky, you don't have people giving you
the finger and blowing their horns at you.
Now there may be some conflicting stories about what
the pilots were doing to miss an entire city, but it wasn't
like they went on into Canada and everyone had to buy ex-
tra insulated underwear for an overnight stay.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that I take air
safety lightly. Nosiree Bob, I want them to kick the tires,
check the fuel gauge, go over the checkoff list and tell me
my cushion will float. And if I see someone with sweaty
hands who refuses to put his rather large briefcase in the
overhead, I'm going to keep a close eye on that joker. I
don't know any kung fu, but I grew up watching profes-


them some slack
sional wrestling with my dad and I can put a haymaker on
someone if the situation is dire enough.
Initially, the pilots reportedly said they were in heated
discussion about airline policy. Apparently it wasn't that
part about runway accuracy. But still, I will cut them some
slack. The fact that they discovered their mistake and cor-
rected it without injury and probably very little inconve-
nience ... well I can just write it off as a training exercise
that will benefit future pilots.
It's pretty easy for me to take this stance because I've
flown in a hot-air balloon that landed in a cotton patch. I've
flown in a crop duster that was 90 percent engine, five per-
cent airplane and five percent duck tape. I once flew with a
fellow who apparently didn't check the fuel and we literally
glided onto the landing strip. And flying across the Gulf of
Mexico one stormy afternoon in a tiny twin-engine puddle
jumper, I sat in what is normally referred to as the co-pilot's
seat and took instruction on what to do "if the pilot needed
help."
And once I flew in a helicopter to shoot some aerial pho-
tos only to find out that two weeks later the pilot was
grounded for having a heart condition. So a 28- minute ex-
tra flight in a comfortable Airbus seems a very small matter
to me because they did return and land safely at the right
place. If they had landed on an Interstate, then that would
be an entirely different matter. Just consider that last Janu-
ary, a pilot landed his plane in the Hudson River and be-
came a hero. I realize that's comparing apples to oranges,
but it is something to think about.

throughout October. Besides taking care of their home-
work and making the courtyard alive with play, learn-
ing to play the keyboards and guitar, students did pro-
jects that addressed the monthly theme, Earth Science.
The students made candied apples and lollipops,
carved pumpkins, created artistic pages of the different
seasons, made terrariums, planted a fall garden, and


continued working on their service project, children's
books to present to the pediatric ward when they visit
Shand's hospital in December.
Bonnie Box of the University of Florida and Mary
Ward from the county health department presented a
program about good nutrition and let the students pre-

O'BRIEN AND OUR NEIGHBORS

'Bits & Pieces' from

south Suwannee County


By Ana Smith
For the last few years I keep telling my-
self that I really need to get down to the
riding club rodeo grounds on Highway
129 in Branford. When I drive by, for
whatever reason, on a late Saturday after-
noon and see the horse trailers pulling into
the gates and dozens of horses tied to the
trailers on the backs of pickup trucks, a lot
of them being groomed for the night's ac-
tivities, I want so much to come back later
and watch the ropers and all the partici-
pants. But it seems that's as far as I get,
and I realized this past weekend that I'm
really missing out on a lot of fun. I'm


making it my goal to attend the next event
in two weeks. Will you be there?
I've talked with enough folks over the
last few years to know the kids and young
adults put a lot of work and time into these
events. Even if you aren't a rider, why not
plan to take in one of the events in the
coming weeks? Your own children will
enjoy watching the young riders putting
their horses through their paces, and they'll
see what fun competition can be. There
are several youth riding clubs in our coun-
ty. If you want information about them,

With the economy the way it is right
now we are experiencing more requests
than in past years. No donation is too
small, if you can just provide one toy, a
box of food, a winter coat or shoes it
will be greatly appreciated.

coachman hooked it
aboard the mail car.
After the death of A.W.
McLeran, his sons,
Thurston and A.W. Jr.,
continued to operate the
business. Thurston
bought the entire business
in 1944. In 1959, the
General Mercantile Store
was the oldest business in
Suwannee County still in
operation by the same
family.
The store was sold in
the early 1960s to the


Fultons, who ran it until it
closed in 1967. Mr. Dees
bought the building and
purchased the property in
1967, and then sold it to
Mike Borman in 1974,
who lived in it until he
sold it to Hacker Signs in
1991. The Hackers sold it
to Mr. H.G. Fisher in
1994, and the property is
still owned by the Fisher
family to this day.
Douglas Fisher and
Kenneth Thrower are
partners in Fisher
Cabinets which is
operated out of the


Mercantile Store Building.
Current owner, Doug
Fisher, knows a lot about
the Wellborn area and his
property, in particular.
Doug told me about where
the cotton scales were
located, and you can visit
and see parts of the scales
still intact. He also told
me about the relocation of
the bank and post office
and showed me where the
vault from the bank is still
buried (due to it being too
large and heavy to move).

down, the McLerans
allowed the school to hold
classes on the second floor
of their store. I also
learned that in 1962,
several convicts escaped
from prison and made their
way to Wellborn where
they burrowed underneath
the Mercantile Store, cut a
hole in the floor and stole
clothing. They were later
captured.
Did all of you
Wellbornites know that
there is a concrete
sidewalk running down 4th
Avenue? Or did you know
that the existing brick road
running east to west was
installed in 1917, that it
runs 3/4 of a mile, and that
it was the main east to
west road through town?
In 1927, SR-10 was paved
through town one block
south of the railroad. The
Wellborn Community
Association, along with
Commissioner Billy
Maxwell, is working on
obtaining a grant to restore
and preserve the brick
road. (But that's another
story.)
Doug Fisher has a lot of
history on his property.
He has found coins, rocks,
bottles and even recovered


a couple hundred bricks
from the bank that was
torn down. Doug really
likes his building and
property and has a serious


used for weighing cotton for


interest in restoring and
maintaining his store. He
is continuously looking for
ways to preserve the
history of Wellborn.

Hives: Causes and Treatments
Urticaria, also known as hives, is a common condition of the skin
characterized by a red, itchy rash. There are many different causes.
Allergic reactions occur when a trigger, such as a food or insect bite,
causes a reaction leading to histamine release. Insects that can cause a
reaction leading to hives include hornets and fire ants. Certain foods,
such as eggs and nuts, can cause an allergic reaction, typically within
30 minutes. Latex, soaps, and detergents also can lead to hives.
Certain medications, including penicillins and sulfa-containing
medications, can also result in allergic reactions.
Treatment of hives largely involves identifying and avoiding
reaction triggers, such as a certain food or type of detergent.
Antihistamines are used to control associated itching, which is a result
of histamine release. Antihistamines are classified as histamine-1
(H1) receptor blockers and histamine-2 (H2) receptor blockers.
Hydroxyzine (Atarax, Vistaril) and diphenhydramine i....-. -.' are
first generation HI receptor blockers, and may cause drowsiness.
Second generation HI receptor blockers are more likely used for
persons with hives lasting more than a few days. Loratadine (Claritin)
and cetirizine /' .-... .. are examples of second generation HI receptor
blockers. They tend to be less sedating than the HI blockers.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: Why is my breath so bad in the
morning and is there anything I can do to
prevent it?
A: A number of things happen while
you're sleeping that contribute to what's
commonly called morning breath. Certain
bacteria in your mouth can breed a new
generation every 4 to 6 hours. If you
don't clean your tongue before you go to
sleep, you can wake up with several new
generations of bacteria in your mouth.
Saliva production also slows when you're
asleep, meaning you get less oxygen to
the back of your tongue and throat. This
triggers bacterial production of sulphur
compounds, which is actually the foul
taste you experience in the morning. Your
tongue rolls to the back of your throat,
allowing it to be colonized by the
bacteria. Mucous in the nasal area
thickens while you are asleep. This
mucous is an excellent food source for
the bacteria that cause bad breath.
To counter this process, as mentioned
above, brush your tongue as well as your
teeth before you go to bed for the night.
Also, drink a glass of water to help clear
as much food debris from the mouth and
throat as possible. Talk with your dentist
about ways to combat morning breath
and other forms of bad breath.

the 100th anniversary of the national organization by
honoring several local African American leaders at a
banquet Saturday evening at New Bethlehem A.M. E.
Church in McAlpin.
The Fourth Annual Freedom Fund ceremony wel-
comed guests from throughout Suwannee County and
beyond to recognize the achievements of hard working
civil rights leaders both nationally and locally.
"It was a surprise to me," said honoree Bennie L.
Thomas, a Live Oak city councilman, mortician and
Vietnam veteran. Thomas said he had no idea he would
be commended Saturday.
"I've been out here fighting for a long time. I was re-
ally shocked, but it was all so nice."
In addition to Thomas, other local NAACP members
honored included retired schoolteachers Dorothy F. De-
Pass and Cora Lee Owens, and the late Richard Alonzo
Reddick Sr., who is remembered for rallying blacks to
vote in Suwannee County during the 1940s.
The program opened to the thunderous echo of "Lift
Every Voice and Sing," the Negro National Anthem, as
participants stood unified with voices lifted.
The crowd was equally attuned during a history read-


ing with music accompaniment by Dr. Phillip Combs
and singers. The skit highlighted the founding of the
NAACP by Dr. Henry Moskowitz and others in 1909
and the contributions of national leaders such as Rosa
Parks, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., President John F.
Kennedy and Senator Robert Kennedy, among others.
Pivotal historical moments such as the desegregation
protests of 1960, the passage of the Civil Rights Act, the
Confederate Flag Protest March and the election of
President Barack Obama were just a few of the points
mentioned.
"I'm just very appreciative that the folks took time to
put this program together," said the Rev. Dorothy De-
Pass. "The history portion was just wonderful."
Vickie E. Hines gave a brief synopsis of Suwannee
County civil rights history. She mentioned Sam Beasley,
the first black ever elected to Live Oak City Council;
Willie James Howard, the black Live Oak teen killed for
his boyhood crush on a white co-worker in 1944; the in-
tegration of Suwannee County Schools, single-member
district voting and equal opportunity in city and county
jobs, to mention a few.
Honoree Cora Lee Owens, a retired educator, cosme-
tologist and former Suwannee NAACP secretary said it
was an outstanding night.
"I enjoyed the program, the food, and the place where
it was held. It was all really good."


Dwindling aquifer
among topics
to be addressed
Staff
In response to con-
cerns voiced by the
agriculture community
and local business own-
ers, State Rep. Debbie
Boyd is calling for a
comprehensive discus-
sion among state leaders
and North Florida resi-
dents about the local
water supply. Among
topics to be discussed
are proposed federal
regulations that could
impede the use of North
Florida water.
Boyd along with a
distinguished panel of
experts will conduct a
forum about issues con-
cerning the regional wa-
ter supply at 7 p.m.
Monday, Nov. 16 at
Branford Elementary
School. Invited partici-
pants include state and
local leaders in water
management and area
residents. The forum
will include two panels
moderated by Boyd.
One panel will focus
on the adverse impact
on North Florida of liti-
gation that seeks feder-
ally mandated uniform
statewide standards to
govern the level of nu-
trients in groundwater.
Another panel will re-
view trend data demon-
strating the dwindling
state of the North Flori-
da water supply and will
include a discussion of
efforts to ensure that the
area's long-term water
needs are met.
"Water is our most
valuable resource, we
need to protect our wa-
ter by encouraging com-
mon-sense solutions to


State Rep. Debbie Boyd

the water shortages cre-
ated by other parts of the
state," said Boyd.
"Counties in North
Florida and the people
who live here must have
some say in how their
water is managed and
where it goes."
Panelists at the forum
will include Suwannee
River Water Manage-
ment District Executive
Director David Still and
Kirk Webster, the dis-
trict's deputy executive
director. Others who are
invited include: Jerry
Brooks, director of the
Division of Environ-
mental Assessments &
Restoration for the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protec-
tion; Charles Aller, di-
rector of Agriculture
Natural Resources Man-
agement in the Florida
Department of Agricul-
ture & Consumer Ser-
vices; Staci Braswell,
director of Government
and Community Affairs
at the Florida Farm Bu-
reau; Eric Draper of
Audubon Society of
Florida; and Mike Hol-
loway, an engineer from
Ocala.
The forum is open to
the public. RSVP by

Refreshments will be
provided.


Attempted murder

committed fundamental er-
ror by giving the standard
jury instruction for at-
tempted manslaughter by
act, which adds the addi-
tional element that the de-
fendant committed an act
intended to cause death of
the victim." However, the
correct guideline for at-
tempted manslaughter de-
fined "by act requires only
an intentional unlawful
act," not with intention to
cause death.
In August 2007, accord-
ing to previous testimony,
Henry Lamb showed up at
his daughter Lisa Sander-
son's house uninvited and
shot daughter Loretta
Lamb in the chest with a
rifle while she vacuumed.
Loretta testified that she
initially thought the vacu-


um cleaner had exploded,
and when she turned to ask
her sister Lisa to take her
to the hospital, she was
shot a second time in the
back. Henry Lamb then
aimed the gun at Sander-
son and pulled the trigger
twice, but it misfired both
times, according to testi-
mony. Henry Lamb then
pointed the gun at his
granddaughter Rashietta
Jones (Loretta's daughter),
but she fled and locked
herself in a bathroom.
Henry Lamb was con-
victed in July 2008 and
sentenced in August.
The district court of ap-
peals filed its opinion last
month, and Lamb ap-
peared in court Thursday
to hear the court's deci-
sion.
A new trial has been set
for January 2010.

He said his mother was-
n't too thrilled.
"I think mother liked the
uniform and the fact that
before I had two feet on the
ground," said Hodek. "Lit-
tle do mothers know."
His job was to support
ground troops and to dis-
rupt supply lines the Ger-
mans used by bombing
them.
"Barges were the main
mode of transportation, so
we took them out in quite a
hurry," said Hodek.
"As a fighter pilot we
never really witnessed any
of the horrors of war," he
said. However, he did shoot
down a German plane.
That was Aug. 7, 1944.
He said it was his 10th mis-
sion. They were to dive
bomb a target in France but
the Germans on the ground
saw them coming.
"We got ambushed by
about 30 plus Germans.
They took off before we got
there," he said.
That's when the German
fighter plane entered his
view.
"We trained for that. I
shot one ME-109 down,"
said Hodek. "I didn't see
this person as a person. I
saw it as a target and it was
either him or me, and I


came out the best in that
one."
The "rushed up mission,"
as Hodek called it, resulted
in the loss of three of our
own. Five German planes
were shot down.
"I never realized I was
going to engage in enemy
aircraft that day," he said.
Hodek said each mission
consisted of eight planes
loaded with bombs. Four
were strictly equipped with
machine guns, eight .50-
caliber machine guns to be
precise, four per wing.
These four were used to
protect the bombers, so
they could fulfill their mis-
sion, disrupting the Ger-
mans supply lines.
"We didn't realize how
much destructive power we
held," said Hodek.
In March of '45, Hodek
said the squadron was
briefed to dive bomb a rail-
road yard. He said there
were dummy airplanes the
Germans used for decoys.
"As I pulled up I could
see parked under a crop of
trees a bunch of airplanes
that they put on the field."
He said the Germans did-
n't want the Allies to know
they had a whole arsenal of
the deadly flying machines.
So they dive bombed the
trains and other supplies on
the ground. He said when

Cameron.
As authorities ap-
proached, siblings Cammie
and Billy Tucker "ran off
into the woods," Cameron
said. Tracking dogs were
used to locate and appre-
hend the pair.
Meanwhile, Minor and
Akes reportedly attempted
to hide inside the home, but
were also located by au-
thorities.


Altogether, deputies dis-
covered 56 grams of
methamphetamine at the
Minor residence, Cameron
said.
The four suspects were
each arrested and charged
with trafficking more than
28 grams of meth (less than
200 grams) and manufac-
turing a controlled sub-
stance. In addition, Cam-
mie Tucker was charged
with possession of con-
trolled substance without a
prescription.

Bulldogs down Baldwin


Branford




Bucs pummel Bell


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com


The Suwannee Bulldogs beat the Bald-
win Indians 37-6 in Suwannee's last dis-
trict game of the season.
Suwannee's Jimmie Taylor started the
'Dogs off with a pass to Andre Zanders
who picked up 13 yards and a first down.
Zanders picked up another nine yards
followed by eight yards by J.R. Bass,
picking up another first down. In Suwan-
nee's second possession of the night,
Greg Swinson picked up 10 followed by
Bass with 12. Taylor then rushed the ball
for 12 yards, followed by a six-yard
touchdown run by Bass. The point after
by Austin O'Connor made the score 7-0.
Early in the second quarter Zanders
added another touchdown on a 23-yard
pass by Taylor. The point after was no
good. Baldwin picked up a few yards be-


fore Alex Falleck sacked the quarterback.
Suwannee's Swinson later ran the ball in
with about eight minutes to go in the half.
The score was 20-0.
Baldwin followed but still lacked a first
down and ended up punting on a 4th and
6. Zanders picked up 11 on a pass play
by Taylor, followed by three runs by
Bass for 24 yards. O'Connor then came
out and added three on a 22-yard field
goal, ending the half. Before the Indians
could answer, Suwannee's Marcus Lane
intercepted.
Suwannee's defense did well stopping
the Indians, who only gained 12 yards in
the first half.
The 'Dogs lost the ball on a fumble to
begin the second half. The Indians capi-
talized with a 16-yard touchdown. The In-
dians tried a two-point conversion but

This was the Bucs last away game of

SPORTS COMMENTARY


This and that


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels

It looks like the Gator
versus Tide game will
put the BCS process on
trial once again. Unless
you believe in Texas it
will be the National
Championship game.
Unfortunately there is no
such talk in Tallahassee
as this is the worst sea-
son in recent Florida
State history. Some are
calling for Bowden's job
and after losing to Ohio


State they are after Joe
Pa.
November is Major
League baseball awards
month. As Turkey Day
arrives baseball will be
handing out MVPs, Cy
Youngs, and Rookies of
the Year. Will Derek
Jeter win an A.L. MVP
in a season that doesn't
have clear-cut winner?
Florida's shortstop is in
the running in the N.L.
The Tampa Bay Bucs
will not challenge the
Detroit Lions as they
beat the Packers. This is


not a '
mis-
print. Remember that
saying, "On any given
Sunday...." Last week
was the given Sunday.
The Bulldogs did not
make the playoffs but
their district had a lot of
fun. Baker, Ribault and
Raines had a shootout
for first and second
place. Baker came out on
top and their prize is
they get to host Madison.

Fall ramblings:

A season for everything wild


By Rodney Barreto
Chairman, Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission
Snowbirds migrating to
Florida might be the most
obvious signs of the onset
of fall for some full-time
residents of the state, but
wildlife is also keenly reac-
tive to the accompanying
seasonal changes that in-
clude shorter days and
cooler weather. We've
written before about cold
fronts and their effects on
migratory birds, but almost
all wildlife responds to fall
seasonal changes, though
sometimes in dissimilar
fashion. So do people.
As for birds, Neotropical
migrants are setting up
shop locally for the winter
or fueling up for a longer
trip to the Caribbean or
South America. Local bird
feeders are being visited by
many species, and in-
creased numbers of ducks,
other migratory waterfowl
and wading birds dot our
large lakes, rivers, beaches
and freshwater ponds and
tidal marshes.
As for birds of prey,
northern harriers can be
seen actively gliding over
marsh areas, and Cooper's
hawks will be on the prowl
for the new feeding oppor-
tunities brought on by the
vast migration of smaller
bird species into Florida.
Eagles are engaged in spec-
tacular aerial courtships,
while their osprey cousins
rebuild nests, high on a
wide variety of naked
perches close to their fish-
ing sites.
Not surprisingly, people
react to these fall migra-
tions too, by putting out
backyard feeders to attract


birds. But don't be sur-
prised if your backyard bird
feeder creates an ambush
point for birds of prey like
Cooper's hawks. That's
Mother Nature sort of.
Bird feeders also can cre-
ate health problems for mi-
grating birds, so don't for-
get to clean your bird feed-
ers regularly with a 10-pre-
cent solution of chlorine
bleach to help prevent the
spread of disease. We owe
it to these tiny migrating
birds, some having sur-
vived a grueling 2,000-mile
journey punctuated by bad
weather and other life-
threatening issues, not to let
them to become victims of
reckless human kindness
by feeding them in unsani-
tary conditions.
To top off the aerobatic
bird festival, majestic sand-
hill cranes and white peli-
cans add to the variety of
air show performers taking
up winter residence.
Remember, there are
good reasons not to feed ei-
ther of these species, nei-
ther of which benefit from
the practice. Deliberately
feeding pelicans at fish-
cleaning stations is illegal.
Feeding sandhill cranes
anywhere is illegal.
As for reptiles, including
native snakes, alligators,
turtles and a variety of oth-
er cold-blooded animals,
the season for high activity
is winding down. Just don't
forget that though the meta-
bolic rates of cold-blooded
animals decrease with tem-
perature, alligators are still
capable of acting as apex
predators, and all cautions
in the FWC's "Living With
Alligators" brochure, need
to be observed with due re-
spect.


On the other hand, mam-
mals are quite active during
the fall, and that includes
the Florida black bear. Al-
though black bears don't
hibernate in Florida, they
prepare for it by entering a
period of activity in the fall,
called hyperphagia. Hyper-
phagia is a behavior in all
black bears that causes
them to feed at twice the
normal daily rate they need
to maintain themselves.
This behavior is likely the
result of a gene that causes
bears to put on weight in
preparation for a hiberna-
tion period that in Florida,
never comes. Here, the cau-
tion to residents living in
bear country is to secure all
trash and pet food in places
and in ways that cannot at-
tract a bear. Appreciating
wildlife from a distance
beats appreciating it from
inside your lanai or garage,
especially if it's a bear.
Deer, hogs and squirrels
are feeding actively, and of
course, that signals the on-
set of hunting season.
Hunters were the first con-
servationists, and like all
conservationists, hunters
have a vested interest in
seeing that all wildlife,
whether it is hunted or not,
continues to proliferate.
Obeying the letter and the
intent of the law, and insist-
ing your hunting partners
do the same, is a great start-
ing place from which to
build an appreciation of all
wildlife.
Be you a snowbird, bird
watcher, hunter, all around
nature lover, pet owner or
just somebody who appre-
ciates living in the Sun-
shine State, fall is a time of
thanksgiving and of
wildlife. Enjoy!

Benefit rescued horses


By Suzanne Murphree
Joe Schomburg and Andrea Haller of
Wellborn Quarter Horses (Wellborn) are
pleased to host The Obstacle Trail Chal-
lenge to benefit Horse Protection Associ-
ation of Florida (HPAF). This special
fund raising event will be held Nov. 22,
from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
HPAF, a non- profit organization locat-
ed in Micanopy, works in the state to res-
cue, rehabilitate, educate and place the
unwanted horse. They also provide as-
sistance to law enforcement and animal
agencies with cruelty investigations. All
cash proceeds from the trail challenge
will go to this non-profit organization.
Participants will receive prizes donated
by the sponsors; Absorbine, Seminole
Feeds and Farm Bureau Insurance.


This unique challenge is all about
demonstrating teamwork between the
horse and the human. The point of a trail
challenge is to gauge the partnership as
they maneuver and navigate around,
through and in obstacles that are man-
made and nature grown. It is the best of
trail ride training and horse show trail
course.
Participant donation is $45 (includes
lunch). Spectator donation is $25 (in-
cludes lunch). Overnight accommoda-
tions for horses can be arranged. Contact
Joe and Andrea at 386-963-1555 or view

Suwannee tumbles over Valdosta


Submitted
Cheek's Gymnastics
competed with some of the
top teams in South Geor-
gia Oct. 21.
"We have already made
out mark in North Flori-
da," said coach Tom
Cheek. "So we thought we
would try and mark up
South Georgia, and we
did"
The competition was
from level 2 (bc_-illill_ i. to
level 10 (elite). Each gym-
nast competes on the vault,
uneven bars, balance beam
and floor exercise. The
highest score a gymnast
can make is a 10.000.
"I haven't seen any 10's
in our level of gymnastics,
but we certainly have
gymnasts that are capable
of making a 10, if they
would give out a 10 in our
competitions," Chris
Cheek said, wife of Tom
Cheek. "Tom and I strive
for perfection, but the


highest a gymnast can
score would be a 9.800,
maybe a 9.900."
"We kicked butt in Val-
dosta," coach Cheek said.
"And home with three first
place All-Around's in the
three levels."
Kyla Watson and Tessa
Ferreira had all first
places in the four events.
Fourteen year old Cary
Winstead finished second
on vault and the rest first
places.
Kyla's (level 3) scores
on vault, bars, beam, floor
and All Around- 9.250,
9.000, 9.425, 9.450 and
37.125 respectfully.
Cary's (level 4) scores on
the same events in order
were, 9.325, 9.300, 9.050,
9.250 and 36.925 and Tes-
sa's (level 6) scores were:
9.272, 8.750, 8.600, 9.150
and 35.775.
"These gymnasts work
hard every time they come
into the gym," Chris


Cheek said. "Tom and I
give them a regimen
schedule to practice and
when they get through
with that, we give them
something else to do."
Three gymnasts were
hot in the low 35's in the
All-Around with high
scores coming from all
four events. Carson Frier,
6, placed second All-
Around with a 35.375, a
9.100 on beam and a 9.375
on floor. Another level 3
gymnast that made a
35.100 All-Around was
SarahBeth Lee. Her vault
stuck out for the fans with
a very high 9.350 for a
first place. She also placed
first on beam with an
8.800. The other 35.250
scorer that placed second
in the All-Around was
from 12-year-old
Stephanie Stewart. She
also placed first on the
vault with a 9.350 and a
second on bars with an


8.850.
Stephanie Lawrence,
10, (level 3) placed first on
the balance beam with a
9.300, a second on the
vault for a 9.075 and a
9.025 for a third on the
floor. Rachel McCoy, 12,
(level 4) also had an All-
Around personal best.
Rachel had two, third
places on bars with an
8.550 and beam with an
8.500. She is another gym-
nast that has improved
each meet. Bailiegh
Williams, 12, (level 4) has
gone from low scoring in
the early staff of develop-
ment to a quality of skill
level that has increased her
discipline and attitude to-
wards a better tomorrow of
gymnastics. Bailiegh re-
ceived a 9.100 on vault for
a third place and a second
place on beam with an
8.600.
There were two level 5's
that scored a 34.350 each
in the All- Around. Grecia
Lagunas, 12, placed third
in all four events plus the
All-Around in her age
group. Her best score came
from the bars with an
8.750, her highest yet.
Emily Gill, 12, is the
veteran at Cheek's with
around nine and a half
years under her belt. Emi-

Two men charged

in Fort White

hunting accident


Two men involved in a
reported hunting accident
in Fort White during early
October are now facing
several charges each from
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) officers.
The Columbia County
Sheriff's Office took the
initial report Oct. 12, when
the accident occurred and
one of the men was shot in
the arm. The investigation
was then turned over to
FWC officials, who found
inconsistencies with the
men's stories. Both men
were re-interviewed.
Gary Stine (DOB
11/19/76), from Lecanto,
was shot in the left fore-
arm. His initial statement
indicated he was bowhunt-
ing while Joseph Alan
Barnes (DOB 01/19/90),
of Erwin, NC, was holding
a rifle. Barnes allegedly
dropped the rifle and it
fired, striking Stine in the
arm.
"One of our concerns
was why did they have a
firearm during archery
season," said FWC inves-
tigator Michael Pridgen.
"We discovered that both
men were hunting with ri-
fles."
The FWC investigators
also determined that the


gunshot was self-inflicted
by Stine. Barnes recanted
his initial story and told in-
vestigators he heard the
gunshot, followed by
Stine's yell for help.
Barnes then left his stand
and went to the aid of
Stine.
"The sheriff's office
seized Stine's .243-caliber
rifle as evidence. When I
inspected the weapon, I
found the safety mecha-
nism was completely unre-
liable," Pridgen said. "The
rifle could be made to fire
when the safety was on, ei-
ther by pulling the trigger
or hitting the stock."
Stine was charged with
possession of a firearm by
a convicted felon, hunting
deer with a modern gun
during archery season and
hunting without a proper
license or permit.
Barnes, who was hunt-
ing deer with a 12-gauge
shotgun, was charged with
hunting without a proper
license or permit and at-
tempting to take deer with
a modern gun during
archery season.
"With the cooperation of
the Columbia County
Sheriff's Office, we were
able to close the accident
investigation," Pridgen
said.


Blast From the Past

Citrus County Speedway


The date and place have
been set now for the 2nd
Annual BLAST FROM
THE PAST. The date is
March 7, 2010 at Citrus
County Speedway in Inver-
ness, Florida.
Event Coordinator Joyce
Lankford is very excited to
know that the second event

ty Speedway.
"We appreciate Critter
and his whole crew for
helping us find a really
good place for our event.
Citrus is perfect and we
cannot wait until March 7
to roll around."
Joyce and Media Spe-
cialist Jane Smith are look-
ing for names of drivers
from both the asphalt and
dirt world to invite for the
event. All you need to be is
60 years or older and have
raced or been a part of a
race team in Florida.
"It does not matter if you
raced dirt or asphalt, we
want all racers, car owners,
pit crew members, General
Managers, everyone to
come and enjoy our event.
We are also looking for
sponsors for this event so if
you would like to help us
and sponsor the event,
please contact me at 352-


942-2369."
Remember, the date is
March 7, 2010 at Citrus
County Speedway.

Drumming up





excitement





in Live Oak

Continued From Page 1

Saturday evening put the
"Live" in Live Oak! The
Lost Safari Drummers,
from Gainesville, opened
the evening performances
with Afro-Caribbean
music. The remnants of
White Lake created a
beautiful backdrop for the
evening as the sun settled
behind the stage. Tampa
Taiko brought the rolling
thunder of Asia with their
Japanese Taiko drums.
Their performance was an
exciting plethora of
incredible rhythm. The
Beat Bombers from Palm
Beach, a world fusion
group that creates high-
energy dance grooves from
traditional rhythms and
instruments, got the
audience on its feet.
Australian Didgeridoos,
Middle Eastern Doumbek,
Tablas from India, African


Jana Broder leads a workshop.


drums, and the Sitar mix
their talents with the
keyboard and bass guitar to
create a unique sound of
modern tribal music.
The Paralounge Drum
Gathering is a family event.
What better way to
celebrate than to have a
wedding! A special
announcement was made
before the Beat Bombers'
last song. Two people
would unite in marriage to
the beat of the drum. Mark
and Teri Hamilton, of Live
Oak, had their first dance
with everyone grooving
and shaking to the Beat
Bombers. The Paralounge
was very proud to be a part
of this moment and wish
them many years together.
Sunday morning
provided a few more
workshops. Buddy Helm
drummed with many
participants explaining the
healing qualities of rhythm


and the drum. There is an
importance to keeping your
body and mind in rhythm.
Buddy explained the
reactions your body has
when exposed to drum and
dance.
Rhythm Church was the
final workshop Sunday
morning. Hosted by Clint
Tipton, Rhythm Church has
no religious message. The
workshop uses musical
interaction to unlock the
human spirit's potential to
express true emotion and
the impact it has to others.
Rhythm Church creates a
spiritual experience
through the music as the
participants experience the
silence, the heartbeat, the
music, the dance and back
to the silence.
The Cerveny Conference
Center provided a beautiful
environment and a caring
staff that supported the
event with their great
attitudes and amenities.
Nearly 400 participants
from around the world
made the weekend a
multicultural musical
experience for the entire
family.

Problems That Might Impede Kids' Sleep
Parents often look in on their children while the kids are sleeping. Kids often look peaceful
while asleep, and parents enjoy seeing them getting their needed slumber.
However, some kids can struggle when it comes to getting their necessary rest. While
many adults have suffered from sleeping problems, it might surprise those adults to learn
that kids can suffer those very same problems. Though they might not have bills or stress
from their jobs, kids can still find it difficult to sleep at night. The following sleeping disorders
aren't exclusive to adults and could negatively impact a child's ability to get a good night's
rest.
Insomnia:This disorder is classified as trouble falling to sleep or maintaining sleep. Stress
and depression are two underlying causes of insomnia in children. Oftentimes poor sleep
habits, such as inconsistent sleep schedules, falling asleep outside of the bed and others
can worsen insomnia. To help kids cope with insomnia, parents should cut off caffeine
consumption 4 to 6 hours before bedtime. Other options serving include lighter dinners,
eliminating nap time or reducing its length (an hour or less) and reserving the bed for
sleeping, not hanging out and watching television or doing homework.
Night terrors: Night terrors are similar to nightmares and typically occur in children between
the ages of 3 to 12. Characterized by periods of intense crying and fear, an average episode
lasts 1 to 2 minutes (though an episode can continue for up to 30 minutes). However, night
terrors are typically not recalled by the child the next day.
Night terrors can be especially hard on everyone involved, as a child will appear genuinely
terrified even though they are asleep. Frequent and recurring, night terrors are also often
accompanied by an elevated heart rate, an increased breathing rate, and heavy sweating.
While there is no uniform cause of night terrors, stressful life events, fever, trouble sleeping,
and certain medications that affect the nervous system might be causes.
Sleepwalking (somnambulism): Somnambulism is the technical term for "sleepwalking." A
sleepwalking episode is when a child sits up in bed with their eyes open, but in reality is not
seeing anything. Children can remain in bed during an episode, or get up and walk around.
Episodes are more common in male school-aged children and some episodes might include
a child actually leaving the home..
Certain things act as indicators of a sleepwalking episode, which can take parents by
surprise. Glassy eyes that are more fixated than attentive and a blank stare in the eyes, as
opposed to normal eye movement, are two common symptoms. When speaking to a child
who is sleepwalking, parents can expect a response to be slow and not necessarily
coherent. Similar to night terrors, a child is not likely to recall a sleepwalking episode unless
they're woken up while it's going on.
Nocturnal Enuresis: Typically a normal part of bladder control development, nocturnal
enuresis bedwettingg) is common among children ages 4 and under. Primary nocturnal
enuresis, however, is bedwetting that occurs in children over the age of 5 or 6. In such cases,
children cannot consistently stay dry at night, and this could be the result of several factors.
Since bedwetting is not an intentional act, it might be due to delayed growth and
development, low levels of ADH(antidiuretic hormone), social or psychological factors, or
simply a small bladder capacity. In some cases, children sleep so soundly they simply don't
wake up when they need to relieve themselves.
Sleeping disorders are never intentional, as no child wants to have trouble sleeping.
Punishment or shaming children will not help the problem, and could very well make it worse.
Instead, consult your child's physician if you suspect your child has a sleeping disorder.

21-year art

tradition brings

fine art, visitors

to Quincy


QUINCY Twenty-one years ago, the first Art
in Gadsden regional exhibition of fine art was
installed in a vacant storefront on Quincy's
courthouse square. The show promoted area
artists, brought fine art to Quincy's school
children, and brought the square to life with
eager visitors, shoppers, and art enthusiasts. On
November 13, The Gadsden Arts Center
celebrates the opening of this great tradition, the
21st annual Art in Gadsden. This year, 121 works
of art from 106 artists have been selected from
nearly 300 works submitted to form the
exhibition. Distinguished juror Harris Wiltshire
will select the award-winning art from the show.
Wiltshire is an award-winning visual artist,
Director of the Foster- Tanner Gallery, and Chair
of the Visual Art Department at Florida A&M
University. "The show seems to grow every


year," said Curator Angie Barry of Art in
Gadsden". "We exhibit new artists, and the work
of some of the most established, most highly
accomplished artists, like Beth Appleton and
Luster Richardson. Over 500 people come to
opening night, and we see more than 2,000
visitors during the run of this great show."
Please join us Nov. 13, for the opening
reception and awards ceremony for the Art in
Gadsden. Galleries open at 6 p.m., and at 6:30,
the Gadsden Arts Center will announce the
winners of the show, recognize Founding
Director Zoe Golloway for her leadership and
generosity in the cultural community, and
announce winners for the Art as Recycling
Student Competition, and the Art in Gadsden

Golden retriever has new lease on life



thanks to Good Samaritan, UF cardiologists

GAINESVILLE Thanks to a grant from a Good
Samaritan and UF Veterinary Medical Center
cardiologists, Tucker, a 2-year-old golden retriever with
severe heart disease and no other chance for help, now is
back home in Fort Myers with a new leash, er, lease, on
life.
"Today I walked him and he walked me, 70 percent of
the time," said Anne Liebermann, Tucker's owner. "He
was really raring to go. When we first got him at the age
of 4 months, he could do about a block and that was it."
Tucker's owners never limited his exercise; the dog did
that on his own, Liebermann said. His condition had
worsened to the point that he showed increasing signs of
stress, including fainting, with minimal exercise and
exertion. ,
"He's a purebred from a registered litter, but we knew
when we got him that he was sick," Liebermann said.
"We didn't have the cash or the funds to do anything
other than normal maintenance but just decided we would
give him as good a life as we could while he was with
us.
Liebermann brought Tucker to Gainesville in mid-
September on the advice of her veterinarian, who had
learned about a congenital heart disease study underway
at the VMC. The veterinarian believed Tucker might be a
candidate.
After examining the dog, however, Dr. Amara Estrada,
assistant professor of cardiology, and her team determined
that Tucker did not qualify because his particular heart
disease did not meet the study's criteria.
"He not only had really bad heart disease, his owner
also was unable to afford an interventional procedure to
treat him," Estrada said.
Approximately two years ago, however, an anonymous
client generously donated $4,000 to the cardiology
service to help the owners of cats that suffered from heart
disease but who could not afford care. Although Tucker
was a dog, the funds had not been spent because there
have not been any viable feline candidates, Estrada said.
Meanwhile, however, UF cardiology team members had
fallen in love with Tucker and his owner.
Cardiology resident Dr. Mandi Schmidt contacted the
anonymous donors to ask if they would agree to bend
their rules this one time and allow Tucker's medical
expenses to be covered through their gift.
The owners agreed. Soon thereafter, UF's cardiologists
had performed a cardiac catheterization and effectively
ballooned his pulmonary valve.
"It was a very successful procedure," Estrada said.
"Although Tucker will still not have a normal life
expectancy, it will be so much better than it would have
been."
Schmidt added that over a week after the procedure,
Tucker was no longer fainting and that his owner
described him as "like a new dog."
Liebermann added that she had not realized up until
now how much Tucker's illness had taken out of him.
"He's just the sweetest thing," she said. "There's not a
mean bone in his body. He is quite the mischief maker. If
we hadn't heard about the study at UF we never would Cardiology resident Dr. Mandi Schmidt, left, and veterinary student Heather Rogers, right, with Anne Liebermann and
have taken him up, so everything really fell into place." Tucker in the small animal clinic in September. Photo: Courtesy Dr. Mandi Schmidt

MADISON The North Florida Community College
Art Department invites the public to the exhibit "Linear
Thinking." The exhibit, which runs through Nov. 30 at the
Hardee Center for the Arts, features works by artists
Wendy DesChene, Sayward Henry and Ellen Mueller.
Artist Wendy DesChene, born in Canada, now resides
in Auburn, Ala. where she is an assistant professor of art.
She has exhibited in Canada, the United States, Europe
and Japan. In her artwork on display at NFCC, DesChene
explores how the layers of time can affect or change the
images that people see, often changing the original intent
or meaning of drawings, painting and so forth.
Artist Sayward Henry is a resident of Delray Beach.
Henry explores repetition, boundaries and borders while
searching for the threshold marking the boundary
between similarity and difference. "My current work
explores the idea of boundaries as surfaces," said Henry.
"I use both found and created data to play with the ideas
of boundary, border, and threshold as they apply to the
space of the surface."
Artist Ellen Mueller is a resident of Tampa. Her works
explore situations where humans may choose to not see
the shades of gray that nuance difficult situations. "In
situations of anxiety, humans can often turn to the
comfort of dichotomies: "A" versus "B", or "black"
versus "white" situations," said Mueller. "My question is:
when does someone cross the line from a 'firm believer of
their stance' to 'fanatic'?"
The NFCC Art Department plans to feature new
exhibits each month during NFCC's fall and spring terms
featuring local and national artists as well as student art.
Artists from around the country have submitted proposals
to exhibit at NFCC.
Regular hours for the NFCC Hardee Center for the Arts
are Monday ;it,. -r.'iit Thursday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. For more
information, contact Lisa Barden, NFCC art instructor, at
850-973-1642, e-mail BardenL@nfcc.edu or visit
