 Notes
Review: The Suwannee Democrat LCCN: sn95026787 is one of the oldest continuously published weeklies in the State of Florida. It began publishing in 1884 in the city of Live Oak (FL). Noting the shifting demographics of Florida in the 20th century, in 1906, one observes that Live Oak was the fifth largest city in Florida, preceded only by Jacksonville, Pensacola, Tampa, and Key West. The Suwannee Democrat enjoyed a corresponding reputation as a journalistic leader in early 20th century Florida. For approximately two years, from 1906 through 1907, the weekly Suwannee Democrat was supplemented by the Live Oak (FL) Daily Democrat LCCN: sn95026788. The Suwannee Democrat has won numerous awards from the Florida Press Association, both as in the weekly category and for the quality of its agricultural reporting. In its early days, the Suwannee Democrat reported a Democrat Party affiliation. The newspaper's first editor hid under an assumed name when he was suspected of murder. A deathbed confession by the actual perpetrator allowed him to resume his true identity: F.R. McCormack. Very little else, however, is known of F.R. McCormack. Fires have taken their toll on the Suwannee Democrat. In 1906, a disgruntled printer left by railroad on the night that its offices burned to the ground. Arson again in October 1995, destroyed a historic block of Live Oak's downtown and the newspaper's office was one of the casualties. Lost in the fire were last-known issues of the Suwannee Democrat dating from 1897 through 1900. The issues had just been scheduled for preservation microfilming under the auspices of the U.S. Newspaper Program, when they were destroyed. The event was bitterly regretted and served to show the precariousness of local newspaper archives. Live Oak is the seat of Suwannee County (FL) government. Suwannee County is surrounded on three sides by the Suwannee River. And, its karst topography gives the area an abundance of natural springs and fresh water. Industries of the region, particularly during the early days of the Suwannee Democrat, were lumber, turpentine and cotton. Live Oak was known for its grist and lumber mills. The character of these industries and the regional economy survived through the 1920s, when economic down-turn resulted in change. Change was already being seen as early as 1910, when the poultry underwent industrialization in the county. Poultry took such a strong foothold in Suwannee County that even front yards were cultivated for the production of feed grains. Agriculture and other land-based industries, particularly forestry and related industries, were also seeing change with the establishment of nurseries supplying hybrid bulbs and plants to markets. The Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression brought change and growth to a halt. With recovery, the region became semi-rural. Florida's demographic shifts, both that following World War II and the completion of the Interstate Highway System initiated by Governor Bryant in the 1960s, have marked a trend of increasing urbanization in Suwannee County.--E.

OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat


Amendment 4:


The battle's on
The battle over Amendment 4, the "Vote
on Everything" initiative designed to throttle
down growth in Florida, has come to Live
Oak. A supporter of the initiative says our
local Chamber of Commerce broke the law
by holding a meeting at City Hall to tell
folks what's at stake. The war of words is
underway in our letters and Rant & Rave
columns as well.
We've made our position clear. In Tampa
or Miami, Amendment 4 might and we
stress the word actually seem to make
senke, if only at first blush. In places where
developers have run roughshod over the en-
vironment and the will of the voters, drastic
measures (such as Amendment 4's require-
Sment that eaoh and every change to a land
use plan be put to a community-wide vote)
could well sound reasonable.
But not here.
Intelligent growth is the key to sustaining
the local economy. Without it, we'll never
find a way to keep our young folks from
leaving home for greener pastures.
The issues involved are complex and we
plan to discuss them in detail as the debate
progresses. There's plenty more to come,
folks. This one's just getting started.

Can't say I ever seen no letters wan-
tin' a metropolis here & Taylor co.
sure has a bigger, more diversified
commercial base than us & they don't
have any I-10 or 75 exits!! The liquor
thing really needs to go to the vote
though. "Hometown democracy"
amend. 4 is risky since we don't like
to get out & vote much here & our
county commission and development
agencies have managed to stop
growth without no help. It could pre-
vent some "special elections" & law-
suits that everything here requires
though. A good alternative would be a
county charter, a PAC for economic
growth independent of gov't ap-
pointees & funding, and a voter turn
out over 26%!! These grants, subsi-
dies, & state funds our local gov't &
their lackeys are so proud of still
come from regular folks taxes. They
need to quit suckin' up tax$, git outta
the way, & let folks make a buck how-
ever they can.
m m m
I read your editorial, Democracy
and then some, try to stay on top of
this one folks, and I am replying to it.
Everyone should go to the Web site
www.floridahometowndemocracy.co
m to find out the real story on what
the real story on Amendment 4 is all
about. It is about democracy for sure
and it's also about promoting growth.
You say it will stifle growth, that is in-
correct, what stifles growth is the'
boom bust of the over development
cycle, with the spiral of higher taxes
and lower property values and the
crashing of our economy. What will
promote growth is Amendment 4 and
only those plan changes passed by
voters that will actually benefit the
community instead of simply benefit-
ing developers, which is all they do
right now and stick us with the prob-
lems of over development. Thank you.

Congratulations to Greg Scott,
Parks and Recreation Director for get-
ting the Achievement Award for the
state of Florida. Thanks also to Greg
for his part in recommending Earl
Carter for statewide recognition for
his 30 years of volunteer service on
the Suwannee County Recreation
Board. These men are partners in
progress and the residents of Suwan-
nee County sincerely thank you.

I would just like to thank the Live
Oak citizen who found my wallet and
was honest enough to return it and I
would also like to thank the officer of
Suwannee County Sheriffs, Mr. Kelly,
for going out of his way to make sure
my wallet was returned. I guess there
are still a lot of honest people out
there and I would like to say thank
you to all of them.

My wife and I are new to the area
and I am really disappointed to see the
amount of trash and litter strewn on
the roads. Why is there no law en-
forced that trucks carrying loads to the
dump or trash from construction, they
must be covered. That is normally a
law in every state. If so, it is not en-
forced here. After all the years of anti-
littering that we were raised with I am
very surprised. This is a beautiful area
and I wish people wouldn't trash it.


Thank you.

To the intelligent genius that thinks
that I owe them an apology, for my
rant of defending my beloved home-
town, well think again, I owe you
nothing. Reading rant & rave over the
years is mostly callers that have
moved here and then start bad


mouthing Suwannee County for one
reason or another. Well I was just de-
fending it. I know everyone has their
own opinion, but I also have mine. As
far as my moving to Mongolia, my
family has been here for generations
before you came and will be here for
generations when you and yours have
gone. So stick that in your intellectual
pipe and smoke it. But since you prob-
ably don't smoke either, use that bril-
liant mind of yours to figure out
somewhere else you can stick it.

I went up to your museum and
would like to compliment whoever
does your yard work, how beautiful it
looked while I went to Railroad Days.
It just looked so nice this past year
and my compliments to the ones who
have been doing your yard work.
Thank you.

Hi, yes I am calling about the tax
property here when you have your
property zoned as agricultural. For the
last five years our neighbor's property
has grown over knee high, snakes are
coming out of it. He is supposed to
farm it, but he says because of a loop-
hole in the system, he can zone it as
agricultural to get the tax benefits but
doesn't have to farm it. What loop-
hole are they talking about and what
can we do about it? Our yard is being
overrun with coral snakes and rat-
tlesnakes. Thank you.
H *ll
On Sept. 25, 2009 the Democrat
printed in the paper that at the ele-
mentary school, an officer needs to be
directing traffic morning and evening.
This person was wrong. I talked to the
SRO, they are not supposed to do traf-
fic control, that is in their job descrip-
tion. They cannot be at five places at
one time, which is where everyone
wants them to be. It is not gonna hap-
pen, true story, it ain't gonna happen!
If a parent has a problem with the way
things are done or the way the school
is designed, why don't they or they of-
fer to help with the problem. All they
want to do is complain, that is my
problem! Thank you.

The uneducation of many in this
county is shocking. Our President has
dark skin, yes, but he is not Muslim.
He was born in Hawaii which folks, is
the USA. His father was from Kenya
not Iraq and left him when he was2.
Dark skin does not make you Muslim.
He has been a part of our Government
since 1997 in the Senate for Illinois, I
think his views have been expressed
already. I think if he was up to no
good someone would have known by
now. AND People the President does
not even write his own speeches. He
has a White publicist and Press Secre-
tary. He is also Christian and belongs
to the United Church of Christ in
Chicago. I wonder if the same people
afraid to let their children hear a
scripted speech come out of church on
Sunday.

I have been a Sound of Suwannee
band booster for eight years. Over the
last couple years we have been raising
money for new uniforms. We have
leaned on Leona's, Sunbelt Chrysler,
First Federal Bank, Cheek & Scott
Drugs, the Brown Lantern, and John-
son's Auctions, and without their help
we wouldn't have the uniforms. The
compliments we have heard sure
make the hard work worth it. Just
know the kids are proud to have them,
and we as boosters sure are proud we
live in a community that will step up
and replace those 10-year-old uni-
forms. Between car washes, barbe-
ques and an auction, we have about
done it. Thanks.

Among the world's faithful, be they
Jew, Muslim, Catholic, or Protestant,
America's homegrown Christian sects
are, in some aspects, among the most
radical, intolerant, & selective inter-
pretations of scripture man has ever
conceived. Throughout history, one
indisputable fact is man's translation
of God's word has been used to ma-
nipulate & justify political & personal
motivations all to often. Faith & the-
ology are complex matters that no
mortal being has the insight to declare


their version as the right one. The re-
cent trend in this column of racism,
insults & anarchy demonstrate clearly


wve


that there is room for improvement
here in paradise.

Excuse me! How can amendment 4
halt growth & economic development
here any better than our gov't. & civic
officials already have? Look around,
we are in reverse! Nice place to live,
but one helluva place to earn a living.
We can build roads & buy industrial
parks all day long, but until the atti-
tude lightens up, it's just good money
after bad. Throwing tax $$ at it ain't
the solution. By the way Hamilton co.
just opened a new 50 ac., multimillion
$$ RV park with "nothing to offer" ex-
cept that we are the gateway to one of
the largest tourist states in the country.

If noise should be kept to a mini-
mum -- for example, not hear music
more than 25 feet from the source. To
let a police car drive near a car with
loud boom that can be heard a block
away, yet the officers do nothing. If
their excuse is they did not hear it,
that does not fly. And the ice cream
truck is allowed to play their blaring,
annoying music, as bait for kids to ha-
rass their parents for money, just so
they can sell a frozen treat to make
money. But when I hear that ice cream
truck over four blocks away turning
off of Hamilton Street and I have
heard it long before I see it, come on,
give us a break!

Callers to 386-208-8314 may ex-
press their thoughts, good or bad,

itics, but not about private individuals

LETTER TO

THE EDITOR
To the Editor:
Ms. Jill Yelverton, in her letterto
you, alleged bias in your paper's
pre-coverage of our informational
meeting about Amendment 4 on
[Tuesday], September 29th at Live
Oak City Hall. This is unfortunate.
II seems Ms. Yelverton's passionate
support of Amendment 4 would
have driven her to attend the meet-
ing. It did not. In fact, not one
Amendment 4 supporter attended-
If they had, they would have been
given the opportunity to express
concern and ask questions -just like
every other citizen in attendance.
Furthermore. your readers should
know. members of our local opposi-
tion group to Amendment 4 are not
the big-business types alleged by
Ms. Yelverton. We are small busi-
ness owners and concerned citi-
zens. We volunteer our time in op-
posing Amendment 4 because we
believe it will increase unemploy-
ment in our community; it will turn
our land use planning process into a
political process, and Amendment 4
will lead to extraordinary costs and
litigation in our elections. Voters
will get a chance next year to de-
cide if Amendment 4 is the best
way to decide where we build our
homes, our churches and our
schools. We invite your readers to
learn about us at www.flori-
da2610.org and learn about them at

Photographer


finds inspiration


in Branford


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com
On a random summer day, an offbeat
brunette named Jana Miller armed with
a worn camera aimed her lens at pieces
of Branford history and transformed
them into raw, intimate images.
Influenced by the music of David
Bowie and similar rock artists, this
self-taught photographer spends much
of her time shooting live shows and
bands. However, when she leaves the
city and retreats to her home near
Branford, she finds inspiration in na-
ture, animals and small town life and
history. Miller keeps this part of her


life as private and quiet as possible.
Her style is an amicable mix of loud-
and-hip meets quiet-and-serene.
"This is my one true love that has'
never let me down," says Miller,
whose favorite TV shows are The
Muppets and Monty Python's Flying
Circus. "It's my constant inspiration
and passion. I got my first camera
when I was 6 years old from my grand-
father."
Miller says that event forever
changed her life and the way she per-
ceives nature and people. "One of my
all time favorite photos was taken on

of role

in theft


Robert Daniel
Delbert Wayne
Minor Akes


By Carnell
Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne
@gaflnews.com
A Branford man was ar-
rested Tuesday and accused
of assisting in the theft of a
metal transformer taken for
its copper contents from a
substation near Little River
Road and US 129.
Robert Delbert Minor,
34, denies he was present
when the transformer was
taken, but admits he sold
the wire contents at Sapp
Salvage in Lake City, ac-
cording to a sheriffs report.
Minor was reportedly
identified by Daniel Wayne
Akes, 34, of 7800 NE 35th
Avenue in High Springs, as
.:the person ;who;!assisteda,'
him in the theft. Akes, who :ab
was arrested Saturday by
Suwannee County authori-
ties, said Minor helped him
remove wire from the trans-
former which they sold for
$78 and split the money.
Akes reportedly told offi-
cers the empty transformer
canister could be found at
Minor's property at 4141
282nd Terrace.
When asked, Minor told
authorities he removed the
canister from his property
and led them to a spot in the
woods down the road from
his home where the canister
was retrieved, the report
shows. He admitted to help-
ing Akes extract the wire
from the transformer before
selling it, but denies any in-
volvement in the actual
theft of the canister.
The transformer was
worth in excess of $800 and
damage to a fence was esti-
mated at $999.
Both Minor and Akes are
charged with grand theft,
burglary and criminal mis-
chief.

Little girl looking for a lost hat


My granddaughter, Jodee Sessions, is
8 years old and some would consider her
small for her age, weighing in at just 55
pounds. She rides a quarter horse called
Hank, and he is rather large. People are
surprised to see her atop such a big
horse when she is just a little girl. Hank
seems to love Jodee as much as she
loves him. They are a team. She has an
extremely large heart and the willingness
to win. When you see her ride him in the
barrels, you are even more amazed.
Jodee ran in' the rodeo Saturday night
and won the event on Hank (Hank
Williams is his full name). While com-
peting, her hat fell off and the judge in
the arena picked it up and put it on the
post on the side of the arena, which is
normally where they would put hats that
fall off, as they frequently do during bar-
rel races.
When Jodee went back after her run to
claim her hat off of the post, it was not
there. Now normally, we would say, oh
well, guess we will have to save for an-
other hat.. However, this was a very spe-
cial hat in that her father had gotten it
specially for her to compete in rodeos.
She had always wanted a Silver Belly


hat to compete (light tan felt hat) and
had finally gotten one from her dad
(Randall) as a surprise to her.
If, by mistake, you took the hat, Jodee
would love to have it back -- no ques-
tions asked. Please call Robert at the
Suwannee Democrat, 362-1734, and
he'll make the arrangements.

Thank you, and may God bless.

that old plastic camera,"
said Miller.
"My name is pronounced
Jan-uh: NOT Jay-nuh. As
much as I love the country
twang to it," Miller.says on
her Facebook photography
page. The Tampa native
who prefers the quiet soli-
tude of country living is not
yet married and has no
children.' Miller's love af-
fair has always been with
art. Her companions when
she's not working and en-
joying her rich social life in
Gainesville are two stray
cats and a mix of other pets
whom she calls her kids.
She jokingly calls herself a
cat and dog whisperer, a
healer of broken wings and
broken hearts.
Miller discovered Bran-
ford's Shrine Club in 2008
while working for the U.S.
Geological Survey as a
photographer and studying
sturgeon in the Suwannee
River. "I became inspired
after hearing about the
building's history and how
it used to be a train depot,"


she said. "And then I no-
ticed the old fire truck."
Miller says she finds some-
thing new to photograph in
Branford each time she vis-
its, whether it be historical
buildings, canoeists on the
Suwannee or the tea-col-
ored waters of the Suwan-
nee itself.
Miller sees art in every-
thing. She found inspira-
tion in Branford that for
most of us would have
gone unnoticed, and she
captured it.

'Hometown Democracy'


hashed out at City Hall


Continued From Page 1A

cuss the implications of the.
initiative, under which a
public vote would be re-
quired for any change to a
community's comprehen-
sive land use plan. Elected
county and city officials
vote on such matters now.
Ryan Houck, executive
director of Floridians for
Smarter Growth, called
Amendment 4's dictates
"costly" and "burden-
some."
S"It's designed to handi-
cap voters regardless of
voters and regardless of
price," said Houck. "Under
this plan, Florida would be
essentially closed for busi-
ness."
Houck was unable to at-
tend the meeting in person
but addressed the issues
and took questions by
phone.
John Hedrick, chair of
the Panhandle Citizens
Coalition, said in a press
release widely circulated
on the Internet that the
meeting violated Florida
law because it was spon-
sored by the Chamber of
Commerce.
"They can't take posi-
tions on the taxpayer's
dime through hosting fo-
rums in this fashion or oth-
erwise taking "a stance as
this too is a violation. What
the cities/counties can't do
directly, they sure can't do
it indirectly," he said.


Hedrick cited Florida
Statute 106.113, which
states:
"A local government or a
person acting on behalf of
local government may not
expend or authorize the ex-
penditure of, and a person
or group may not accept,
public funds for a political
advertisement or election-
eering communication con-
cerning an issue, referen-
dum, or amendment, in-
cluding any state question,
that is subject to a vote of
the electors. This subsec-
tion does not apply to an
electioneering communica-
tion from a local govern-
ment or a person acting on
behalf of a local govern-
ment which is limited to
factual information."
The law took effect July
1.
Dennis Cason, director
of the Suwannee County'
Chamber of Commerce
and president of the
Suwannee County Eco-
nomic Alliance, said the
chamber used no taxpayer
funds for the meeting.
"I don't understand what
they're talking about. There
was no money spent on
anything," said Cason.
"The city lets anybody use
that facility since it's a pub-
lic building. We didn't rent
it. There was no money in-
volved."
Hedrick said Amend-
ment 4, which will appear
as a state constitutional


amendment on the Novem-
ber 2010 ballot, would give
voters more say in growth.,
"Lots of people don't like
their governments to try
and tell them either how to
vote and/or to keep them
from voting on matters ...
The citizens in that local
community would have the
right to vote on those
growth issues, a right peo-
ple do not have currently,"
he said.
Cason disputed the
claim.
"This proposed rewrite
of the Florida Constitution
will imperil Florida's econ-
omy and unique quality of
life," he said by email.
Cason said the amend-
ment would hit rural coun-
ties hardest.
"We're hopeful that we
can awaken the people in
Florida and the rural areas
that if this passes, it's going
to shut down economic de-


velopment," he said at
Tuesday's meeting. "We
have to grow here and we
must have growth if we
want to sustain ourselves."
Live Oak resident Brant
Helvenston said the way to
get the word to voters is to
talk about the price of
holding elections for each
change to the land use
plan.
"If you appeal to some-
body's wallet, that's going
to get them," Helvenston
said at Tuesday's meeting.
Live Oak City Develop-
ment Manager George Cur-
tis said there has been an
increase in land use appli-
cations in the past several
months in anticipation of
the vote.
As a constitutional
amendment, Amendment 4,
sponsored by a group called
Florida Hometown Democ-
racy, requires approval of 60
percent of voters.

center's major fundraiser
and revenue source for the
year.
"We need the communi-
ty to get out and get in-
volved," said Donna
Sandage, the center's exec-
utive director.
The center provides sup-
port and supplies to women
who need help caring for
their new or unborn babies.
"The fundraiser gives the
community the opportunity
to share their support for
life, to support women who
are in a tight situation,"
said Sandage.
. The center helps mothers
support their child up to 24
months of age.
A new addition to the
Walk/Run will be a church
challenge. Church mem-
bers can challenge others
within their congregation
to see who can earn the


most money, or a church's
congregation can challenge
another church. The win-
ning church will receive a
trophy to keep until next
year's Walk/Run.
Prizes will also be given
to everyone who partici-
pates. Prizes will be based
on the amount of money
collected. Armbands with
an inspirational message
and the center's logo will
be given free to each par-
ticipant.
Food, games, balloons
for the kids and live enter-
tainment will be available.
"We so much appreciate
the community and the
help they've given us over
the last year," said
Sandage. "Without them
we would not be able to
operate."
The Pregnancy Care
Center of Live Oak, on
Piedmont Street, assisted
368 women last year.

County where he abscond-
ed from probation.
Shaw said he believes
there are more arrests to be
made.
"I'm personally not sat-
isfied we got them all," he
said by phone Wednesday
morning. "The rest are
probably lying low to see
what move we will make
next. It's almost like a
chess game with these
guys."


Shaw said most of the
juveniles who commit
these crimes are "stuck out
in no man's land." He said
they reach the age at which
they might be able to get a
job, but noted that jobs
here are few and far be-
tween.
However, "They don't
have any regard for other
people, they just care
about themselves," he said.
Twenty-four home inva-
sions robberies have been
reported in the city since
December.

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT


Learning to



live fearlessly

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Routine Mammograms
Increase Survival of
P Breast Cancer,


By Beth Sperring, ARNP
Suwannee County Health Department
I have noticed that the older I get, the
more time I spend looking for things I
want to find my glasses, the scissors I
just put down, my car keys or the card for
the doctor's appointment I just made
yesterday.
Then there are the things I don't look
for, nor want to find, but notice anyway
- another grey hair, a wrinkle, an age
spot.
If there's one thing I look for that I truly
don't want to discover, it's a breast lump.
Finding a breast lump can be scary; the
thought of having cancer can certainly be
overwhelming. This is the very reason
some women tell me they do not perform
breast self-exams the fear of finding
something.
They go on to say that mammograms,
so they have been told by their friends, are


very painful and therefore they don't think
they want to do that either. This links us
to the strange behavior of the ostrich, as it
believes it is out of danger when it buries
its head in the sand.
National Breast Cancer Awareness
Month educates women about the
importance of finding breast cancer early.
Experts recommend doing a breast self-
exam monthly, starting in your 20s, to let
you know how your breasts normally feel
and look, so any changes can be quickly
detected and reported. Early detection of
breast cancer through screening
mammography is the best way to detect
breast cancer when lumps are too small to
be felt or seen.
Breast cancer is the most common, and
the second most deadly, form of cancer in
women (lung cancer is number one).
Being a woman and getting older are the
two main risk factors for breast cancer.
Other risk factors include family


The sign says it all.


Early detection is the key to beating breast cancer. photo: submitted

history, personal history of certain
cancers, no pregnancies or pregnancy later
in life, menstruation before age 12,
menopause at age 55 or after, obesity,
alcohol intake of more than two drinks per
day, and the use of some types of
hormone therapy.
To protect themselves from breast
cancer, women need to know their
personal risk factors and how they can
reduce them. Studies suggest regular
exercise, limiting alcohol intake and
avoiding postmenopausal obesity are
lifestyle changes that can reduce women's
odds of developing breast cancer. Still,
almost half of all women who develop
breast cancer have no identifiable risk
factor other than being a female and
aging.
Here are the real and
encouraging facts:
Most breast lumps are benign.
When breast cancer is foundearly, it
is usually curable.
Mammography, though it can be
uncomfortable because each breast is


compressed, lasts only for a few moments.
Detecting breast cancer in the early
stages, and before it has spread to other
parts of the body, can make a big
difference in the outcome. Many
advances have been made in breast cancer
awareness and treatment. With early
treatment the outlook for women with
breast cancer is good.
THE KEY TO PROTECTION IS
EARLY DETECTION. And the key to .
early detection is screening looking for
cancer in women who have no symptoms
of disease.
The best available tool is a regular
screening mammogram every year after
age 40 along with a clinical breast exam
your healthcare provider every year.
Checking your own breasts once per
month helps you to take charge of your
own health. Although finding a breast
lump can be frightful, remember to do it
for your sisters, daughters, and
granddaughters that you may have many
more years to spend teaching them to be
fearless.

History discussion group meets
The Suwannee County Historical Museum would like
to remind local citizens of the ongoing discussion group
called "Reflections" led by Eric Musgrove, author of Re-
flections of Suwannee County. This group meets at the
museum on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm.
As the Records Manager and Historian for the Office of
the Clerk of the Circuit Court, Mr. Musgrove has first-
hand knowledge and access to much of the history of this
region. These discussion groups have proved to be an as-
set to the museum and the community. As participants
gather in an in-formal setting, opportunity is given for
questions and discussion of each particular subject. A
video or PowerPoint presentation is often shared as well.
This program event is free to the public and registration is
not required.
The museum is located at 208 N. Ohio Avenue in Live
Oak in the historic Atlantic Coastline freight station. Their
operating hours are Tuesday Saturday from 9 am 3 pm,
closing from 12 1 pm for lunch. Admission is free, do-
nations are accepted. The museum's phone number is
(386) 362-1776. The museum's Web site is www.suwan-
neemuseum.org. Randy Torrance is the Executive Direc-
tor / Curator.

City workers get bonuses

account for about $85,000 of the budget.
"The way the economy is, it's harder to do things as
usual when there are people out there suffering," said
Stewart.
Stewart said neither the council nor Mayor Sonny No-
bles would receive bonuses. He said the city usually hands
out bonuses instead of raises because the bonus does not
add to retirement costs or yearly salaries.
The budget is 12 percent higher than last year's. The
millage rate was set at 5.9828.
The budget passed 3-1; the millage rate was approved
by a 4-0 vote.

Saturday will offer the

In addition, the buddy
pickup event Saturday is
expected to be a real
crowd pleaser, Knapp
said.
"Riders race to the op-
posite end of the arena and
have to pick someone up
while in motion," she ex-
plained. "That should be
really neat."

quency and develop law-
ful, productive citizens

Youth ranches throughout

year alone.
The local community is
asked to come out and
show its support.
"We're expecting about
2,000 community support-
-ers to attend,' Knapp said.
"It's a great family-friend-
ly event."

Light.
"It cLn be hard and a little danger-
ous," said Smith, who has been do-
ing electrical work for over 20 years.
He and a local crew worked to string
wire along poles throughout the
length of 7th Street Wednesday.
As the afternoon sun beamed
down, Smith remained focused
while seated atop a wiring pull rig,
shifting a lever to ensure that ca-
bling wrapped properly around a
pulley.
The contraption looked much like


a massive water hose spindle, but
this was clearly a job that required
training and plenty of skill.
"What we have to do is move
everybody out of the way," Smith
said. "The lines remain hot to keep
the power going. I pull out the small
rope, pulling it with the big rope and
the wire goes into place."
All the while, Smith answered
calls from a cord radio and relayed
messages back to his co-workers at
the opposite end of the street.
Then, in a matter of seconds, as a
fellow lineman came to his side,
Smith hopped off the pull rig and


scaled the side of an enormous
white-trimmed bucket truck. He
tossed on his protective gear and
hoisted himself into the air to secure
the power lines that he had just
pulled into place.
Smith shifted his way around the
electrical lines above his head as he
stood inside the bucket lift, un-
clasped the pull rope and secured the
new power line into place. All in
what seemed like no time flat.
"I've basically been doing this all
my life," he said. "I haven't had any
close calls, but you never know what
might happen."

The battle of


the Bulldogs


This Suwannee Bulldog stares down a Santa Fe Raider defender in last Friday night's game.
The Suwannee High School Bulldogs will match strengths with those other Bulldogs of
Taylor County tonight in Perry. "We have to play very sound football," said SHS coach Jer-
ry Odom. "Taylor, from all I can see, is a much better team than they were last year. Their
new coaching staff is doing an outstanding job getting the kids to play hard in the spread
offense and multiple defensive attacks." Kickoff is at 7:30.

Bucs take to the field


against Paxon tonight


The Branford High School Buccaneers will take to the field tonight at home against Pax-
on. "We must play well to have a chance to win," said Bucs coach Bill Wiles. "Paxon has
outstanding athletes. We have got to be gap sound against the run and be good tacklers
in the open field when they throw the ball, which they do a lot. I look for a great com-
petitive game." Pictured above is the Bucs in action against the Maclay Marauders. See

Cross-country

finishes llth

in first meet

By Paul Buchanan
The Suwannee High School Lady's
cross-country team traveled to Talla-
hassee Sept. 19 for the Lincoln Invi-
tational meet.
Under hot and muggy conditions,
the Suwannee team had a solid per-
formance on the extremely hilly and
tough 3.1 mile course.
The team finished 11th place over-
all. Suwannee's first finisher was ju-
nior Camill Chambliss with a time
of 25.11 placing 43rd overall. Lind-
sey Michal and Danyel Batton fin-
ished 52nd and 53rd with times of
26:55 and 26.57 respectively. Round-
ing out the top five for the Bulldogs
were Hanna Ragan and Krissy Sar-
dina. Several other Suwannee runners
missed the race due to injuries or ill-
ness.
This was the team's first race of the
season. It was also the first cross-
country race for four of the five girls.
Thirteen teams with about 130,run-
ners from the Tallahassee and Panama
City region participated. These teams
included top contenders Maclay,
Leon, and Mosley High Schools.
See more photos of the meet in a
future edition.

'grits. The Titans, Dolphins
and Panthers were all in
the playoffs last year. It's a
long way to Tipperary and
the playoffs. I could
include Cleveland in this
list of 0-3 losers but no one
would ever consider Ohio
south of anything, except
maybe Detroit, which has
finally won one. Did the
old Tampa Bay Bucs pop
the corks when their 23-in-
a-row winless streak
remained intact thanks to
the Redskins?
Things will be looking
up for someone. The
Washington Redskins play
Tampa, Carolina and
Kansas City their next
three games. Carolina and
Tampa Bay will face each


other this year as will
Cleveland and Kansas City.
Tennessee and Miami will
certainly beat someone.
There is a very good
chance we can see another
winless season for someone
in the NFL.
The Jags will win a few,
but chances are they will be
going west, young man.
Attendance is not there and
most if not all of their
games will be blacked out.
The last thing Jacksonville
needs is a blow to its
economy but the Jaguars
moving will be a boon to
somebody.
Will Tebow face LSU? In
major sports games if the
doctor says no they usually
find one that will say yes.
Was Ole Miss an illusion in
the top 5? They will surely
ruin someone's season
down the road. We will
know soon if Florida is
singing my Old Kentucky
Home or Louisiana Jazz as
the quest for number 1
continues.
Baseball playoffs begin
next week. Stay tuned for
my predictions. I have a
better chance of picking a
lottery winner then I do the
World Series winner. It
should prove amusing.

Excuses, excuses


-v; ,


By Fr Don Wilson


What exactly is an ex-
cuse? Besides just being
dressed up lies. Many of
us say, "I have a good ex-
cuse." But there's no such
thing. A 'good' excuse is
just a 'good' lie.
In a court of law, "an
excuse is a defense in
which a defendant argues
that he or she was not li-
able for his or her actions
at the time a law was bro-
ken and thus he or she
should not be held liable
for a crime."
Excuses can include -
diminished responsibility,
duress, infancy, insanity,
involuntary intoxication,
mistake, provocation, and
unconsciousness
I think my favorite ex-
cuse from that list is 'in-
fancy.' You could say,
"I was a baby when the
crime happened... it was-
n't me!"
' Think an excuse is a
reason we give when we
do something and it does
not go our way. It is the
'why' excuse we use,
.when we did something
we shouldn't do and get
caught, andIt's our rea-
sons for not doing that we
know we should do.
In the letter of St.
James 4:17 it says: Who-
ever knows what is right
to do and fails to do it,
for him it is sin.
We seem to have an ex-
cuse for everything, don't
we?
There are even Web
sites on the internet that
will help you generate an
excuse! This may sound
absurd but it is true. You
put in the type of excuse
you need and it generates
one for you. (www.zomp-
ist.com/excuse.html)
Why you can even by a
doctor's excuse from a li-
censed physician for
$14.99 to give to your
employer or PE class or
anyone else.
(http://www.doctorsex-
cuse.com/)
Even the Bible is full of


people making excuses,
because making excuses
is as old as human be-
ings.
The person who is good
at excuses is usually not
good at anything else!
If you think about it
we're all in the manufac-
turing business: Some
make good, some make
trouble, and.some make
excuses.
SMy question to you is
this.
Have you been to
church recently? If not
what is your excuse?
In order to make it pos-
sible for everyone to at-
tend church next week we
are planning a special no-
excuse Sunday.
Cots will be placed in
the vestibule for those
who say, "Sunday is my
only day for sleeping in."
Eye drops will be avail-
able for those whose eyes
are tired from watching
TV too late on Saturday
night.
We will provide steel
helmets for those who be-
lieve that the roof will
cave in if they show up
for a church service.
Blankets will be fur-
nished for those who
complain that the church
is too cold, and fans will
be on hand for those who
say the church is too hot.
We will have hearing
aids for the parishioners
who say that, "the pastor
doesn't talk loud
Enoughh" And we will
provide cotton for those
who say that "the pastor
talks too loud."


Score cards will be
available for those who
wish to count the hyp-
ocrites.
We guarantee that some
relatives will be present
for those who like to go
visiting on Sundays.
I guess that we can
have some TV dinners
available for those who
claim that they can't go
to church and cook a
meal also.
One section of the
church will have some
trees and grass for those
who see God in nature,
and quite possible we
could have a small
putting green for those
who only can feel close
to God on the golf
course.
The sanctuary will be
decorated with both.
Christmas poinsettias as
well as Easter lilies to
create a familiar environ-
ment for those who have
never seen the church
without them.
Well, really brothers
and sisters, don't just
make another excuse, just
show up.

Write a Letter to God

The fourth spiritual work of mercy is to comfort the sorrowful.
Unfortunately, the world is full of pain and suffering, and we need
not look far to find someone in need of comforting. Philosophers
have often referred to this realm as a "veil of tears," suggesting
that sorrow is the essence of our earthly existence. But surely, that
goes too far. There is joy amongst the sadness, and great evils often
give rise to incredible acts of mercy and
forgiveness. Life is a mixed bag, some
good and some bad, and what gives our
lives meaning is the ability to improve
LA. the balance of good over bad.
l'^ ,, T koal Sometimes, this involves increasing the
happiness of others and at other times
S," it means decreasing their pain.
\ ,',''" Comforting the sorrowful may be as
simple as sending a sympathy card to
someone who has lost a loved one or it
may be as complicated as rescuing
someone who is suicidal. Often, the
other person just needs someone to be
with and listen to them. We should not
feel compelled to give them advice nor should we presume that we
understand what they are going through. More appropriately, we
should just let them know that we truly care about them and are
there to listen and help. We may wish to consider suggesting or
even arranging professional help for the person suffering. Most
people who are deeply suffering would benefit from professional
counseling of some kind, whether it is with their pastor, their
doctor, or a psychotherapist. Finally, although we should not
assume that we can do the work of a trained professional, we
should try to be there for them in their hour of need.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

"Forget the former things"


By Angie Land


What is your favorite memo-
ry? Pull it out and think about
it a moment. Is it a precious
family time, or maybe a suc-
cess you experienced, or a
time your life changed in a
positive way? We all love to
relive pleasant memories and
especially enjoy getting to-
gether to reminisce with those
who shared those experiences.
Good memories can also serve
to bring us comfort during dif-
ficult times in our lives. More
than once during these chal-


Heart

Matters
By Angie Land


lenging teen years, I have
pulled out sweet baby pictures of my
children and thought, "this too shall
pass!" However, I came across a verse
recently that warns us of depending so
heavily on those past memories that we
fail to look or move forward. In Isaiah
43:18-19, the Bible has this to say:
"Forget the former things; do not
dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new
thing! Now it springs up; do you not per-
ceive it?"
We often encourage one another to
forget the former things if they are
painful, but this verse invites us to con-
sider the, tendency we have to hold on to
those good things in the past at the ex-
pense of anticipating a new thing hap-
pening in our lives. It is interesting that
we are seemingly instructed to forget
and yet this happens to be humanly im-
possible. Intentionally forgetting, that is.
When we forget something, it is never
on purpose. In fact, the more we try to
forget, the more we remember! The mo-
tive of this Vrse is to forget former
things and not dwell on the past as
though they are more important than the
future. If our full attention is on the for-
mer things, we can't very well partici-
pate in the present, or the future!
In the book of Jeremiah 23:7-8, the
Bible records God's promise to Jeremiah
that He was about to do a new thing in
Israel.
"So then, the days are coming," de-
clares the Lord. "When people will no
longer say, 'surely as the Lord lives, who
brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,'
but they will say, 'surely as the Lord
lives, who brought the descendants of Is-
rael up out of the land of the north and
out 6f all the countries where he had
banished them.' Then they will live in
their own land."
This new thing would be so momen-
tous that it would overshadow even the
parting of the Red Sea and the exodus'
fro Egypt years before it was gonna be
really BIG!
I want God to continually do a new
thing in my life. Don't you? The best
news is this is what He wants as well!!
The second part of this verse says that


when the new thing is being
accomplished, it springs up,
like a plant sprouting. When a
seed is planted the waiting be-
gins, but so does the watching.
Keep checking for a sprout. If
you can,t see it today, check
again tomorrow. That kind of
interest takes concentration and
attention, because if we aren,t
looking, that sprout may spring
forth and go unnoticed. This
could be why He asks, "Do
you not perceive it?" God is at
work all around us, in our mar-
riages, in our relationships with
our children, at our jobs, etc. If


we are too absorbed with even
the good things from the past, we just
may miss it. See, He may just be doing a
new thing in your life, because your
heart matters! *

Blessings, Angie

By Derek Maul

My son, Andrew, flew to St.
Louis last week. He's there for a
10-day conference before he ships
out to Bahrain in mid October.
His Italy experience is over now,
and his heart is already aching for
Tuscany, his home for 12 months.
I'm thinking about the courage
it takes to fall in love with a place
you know you're going to have to leave.
It's a common dilemma for people who
have short assignments; six months, a
year, maybe two at the most. There's
always this choice: Do I make my self
vulnerable, throw caution to the wind, and
jump in with both feet... or do I keep my
distance; cautious, holding back, guarded -
safe?
I've known people (I know people) who
approach relationships the same way;
"Let's not take the risk of something too
meaningful, you know we'll be moving in
a year." Or churches; "We're going to just
hover around the edges and not take on
any serious relationships." And faith; "I'll
hedge my bets with this God thing; no
point in putting myself out there."
But Andrew didn't waste a single
minute in Italy. Many Americans live in
close proximity, cook hamburgers, watch
American television, and try to replicate
U.S. culture while talking about what was
wrong with living oversees. Andrew
rented a villa in a village where he was the
only English speaker, learned the
language, made friends with Italians, put
together a series of "awesome Italian
adventures", opened his heart, and made
himself vulnerable.
One part of this observation is that my
son is living like he means it If he didn't
enjoy Italy with such enthusiasm he


Antioch Baptist Church will celebrate
their 158th Homecoming Oct. 11. This
day is set aside each year to reflect on
God's goodness through the years and to
look with anticipation to His continued
blessings and opportunities. It is a time for
warm fellowship with church family and
friends. A time for friends and family to
rekindle fond memories and an
opportunity to. get acquainted and
connected with new friends and families
in the church.
A special day is planned with special
guests and activities. At 9:45 a.m. the
musical group Delivered will be
ministering in music. Delivered is a
group of young people who are fulfilling
their calling of ministering through
southern gospel music. Their
youthfulness, sincerity, and commitment
to their calling are an encouragement to
people of all ages. Singing new, uplifting
songs as well as bringing back songs of
old is appealing to all audiences.
Delivered is no stranger to Antioch and
has blessed the church several times
through their music, testimony and
support.
Dr. Fritz Fountain will be the special
speaker in the 11 a.m. service. Dr.
Fountain serves as the director of missions
in the Suwannee Baptist Association
where he provides leadership and


wouldn't be hurting now. It's an
orientation to life that he's going
to gift Bahrain with as well, and
it's going to serve him (and
those around him) well.
The other part is that many of
us shrink back from living as if
we mean it because experience
Tells us the world holds so little
S in the way of grace. We
experience pain when we give
ourselves away in large part because we
don't live in loving, selfless community;
we doh't live in authentic covenant
community; nowhere near enough of us "
live Gospel lives.
So we hold back, we build walls around
ourselves, we fail to relate to others at the
point of our deepest need, and we
replicate that experience where ever we
go.
My son Andrew lives with unusual
courage, and he's having adventures most
of us are too timid to catch. But it
shouldn't take that much courage to live
that well. We live in what
singer/songwriter Don Henley referred to
as "Such a graceless age" (The Heart of
the Matter).
My commitment, this week, is to do
what I can to move the bar back in favor
of more grace.
Love and blessings

GAME OF THE WEEK

N.C. State at Wake Forest


Top guns

having already led his program to unprecedented
heights, Wake Forest senior quarterback Riley Skin-
r will attempt to fend off the challenge of visiting
N.C. State and one of the conference's upstart gunslingers,
Russell Wilson, this Saturday afternoon. '
" -"When a freak:injury to Ben Maik in the 2006 season-
opener thrust Skinner into a starting role, not many
expected the redshirt freshman to lead the Demon
Deacons to 11wins and the school's firstAtlantic Coast
Conference title in 36 years. Far from a one-year wonder
or one to rest on his success, the winningest quarterback
in Wake Forest history has continued to ascend the school
record books by setting new career highs in passing yards
the past two weeks.
Coming off a 5-7 showing in head coach Tom O'Brien's
first season, the Wolfpack appeared to find the answer to
their quarterback woes when Wilson rallied his team to a
30-24 overtime win over nationally ranked East Carolina
on Sept. 20,2008. However, he missed the next game with
an injury and N.C. State soon found itself at 2-6 despite
Wilson accounting for seven touchdowns and throwing for
586 yards in the next three contests against Boston Col-
lege, Florida State and Maryland.
The last four games of the 2008 regular season may
have been the true litmus test for O'Brien's no-nonsense
approach, and the Wolfpack responded by ripping off four
consecutive victories to secure a bid in the PapaJohns.com
Bowl. With three straight wins and a redshirt-sophomore
signal-caller who hasn't thrown-an interception in a
national-record 364 attempts, N.C. State has the momen-
tum it has lacked heading into recent conference openers.
Records: N.C. State 3-1 (0-0 ACC Atlantic); Wake Forest
2-2 (0-1ACC Atlantic). Coaches: N.C. State's Tom O'Brien
(7846); Wake Forest's Jim Grobe (89-79-1). Series: N.C.
State leads 61-35-6. Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET-Saturday. TV:
ESPNU.
Key for N.C. State:.Wrap up ball carriers. Capitalizing
on missed tackles, Pittsburgh built a 31-17 lead with a little
more than 19 minutes remaining this past Saturday.
Key for Wake Forest: Avoid turnovers. The Demon
Deacons committed four turnovers in their season-open-
ing loss to Baylor and three turnovers, including Skinner's
lost fumble in overtime, in this Saturday's 27-24 loss at
Boston College.

THE REST OF THE MATCHUPS
Clemson at Maryland
Records: Clemson 2-2 (1-1 ACC Atlantic); Maryland 1-3
(0-0 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Clemson's Dabo Swinney
(6-5); Maryland's Ralph Friedgen (65-39). Series: Clemson
leads 30-25-2. Kickoff: Noon ET Saturday. TV: ESPNU.
Key for Clemson: Catch the football. Dropped passes
have helped account for Kyle Parker's 47.4 percent
completion rate and potentially both of the Tigers' losses
this season.
Key for Maryland: Eliminate costly mistakes. The Ter-
rapins committed five turnovers and lost 85 yards on 10
penalty flags in this past Saturday's 34-13 loss to Rutgers.
Virginia at North Carolina
Records: Virginia 0-3 (0-0 ACC Coastal); North Carolina
3-1 (0-1ACC Coastal). Coaches: Virginia's Al Groh (82-87);
North Carolina's Butch Davis (66-34). Series: North Caro-
lina leads 57-524. Kickoff: Noon ET Saturday. TV: Raycom.
Key for Virginia: Establish another running threat
besides quarterback Jameel Sewell, who carried the ball
21 and 23 times, respectively, in back-to-back losses to
TCU and Southern Mississippi.


Il aLIaUM =wUUIt DIibULC


to face off


Key for North Carolina: Get wide receiver Erik
Highsmith involved early. The freshman had his second
consecutive 100-yard receiving game this past Saturday as
he caught six passes for 107 yards in a 24-7 loss to Georgia
Tech.
Virgmia hatDuke
Records: Virginia Tech 3-1 (1-0 ACC Coastal); Duke 2-2
(0-0 ACC Coastal). Coaches: Virginia Tech's Frank Beamer
(222-1134); Duke's David Cutcliffe (50-39). Series:
Virginia Tech leads 9-7. Kickoff: Noon ET Saturday. TV:
ESPN360.com.
Key for Virginia Tech: Find ways to get production and
alleviate some of the burden on freshman running back
Ryan Williams. The conference's leading rusher collected
150 yards and two scores on a career-high 34 carries in
this past week's 31-7 win over Miami.
Key for Duke: Continued success on the ground. Des-
mond Scott rushed for 100 yards on 16 carries, and Patrick
Kurunwune added 93 yards on 14 carries in this past
Saturday 49-14 win over North Carolina Central.
Florida State at Boston College
Records: Florida State 2-2 (0-1 ACC Atlantic); Boston Col-
lege 3-1 (1-1 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Florida State's Bobby
Bowden (384-125-4); Boston College's Frank Spaziani
(4-1). Series: Florida State leads 4-3. Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET
Saturday. TV: ABC.
Key for Florida State: It all starts up front. The Semi-
noles yielded five sacks and leading rusher Ty Jones
collected only 22 yards on 12 carries in this past Saturday's
17-7 loss to South Florida.
Key for Boston College: After throwing for 228 yards
and three scores against Wake Forest, freshman quar-
terback Dave Shinskie's performance against a speedy
Florida State secondary may dictate the outcome.
Georgia Tech atMississippiState
Records: Georgia Tech 3-1 (2-1 ACC Coastal); Mississippi
State 2-2 (1-2 SEC West). Coaches: Georgia Tech's Paul
Johnson (11944); Mississippi State's Dan Mullen (2-2).
Series: Georgia Tech leads 3-0. Kickoff: 6:30 p.m. CT
Saturday. TV: Comcast Sports South.
Key for Georgia Tech: Winning on third down. The
Yellow Jackets converted 10 of their 19 third-down
chances, while North Carolina was just 1-for-1l on third
down this past Saturday.
Key for Mississippi State: Keep the Yellow Jackets'
Derrick Morgan out of the backfield. Morgan leads the
conference with an average of 1.4 sacks and 1.8 tackles for
loss per game.
Oklahoma at Miami
Records: Oklahoma 2-1 (00 Big 12 South); Miami 2-1 (2-1
ACC Coastal). Coaches: Oklahoma's Bob Stoops (111-25);
Miami's Randy Shannon (14-14). Series: Tied at 3-3. Kick-
off: 8 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: ABC.
Key for Oklahoma: Whether it's Landry Jones or reign-
ing Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford under center,
Ryan Broyles and Brandon Caleb must be reliable targets.
Broyles and Caleb combined for 232 yards and five scores
on 16 receptions as Jones tied a national FBS single-game
freshman record with six scoring tosses in a 45-0 win over
Tulsa on Sept.19.
Key for Miami: Restoring Jacory Harris' confidence.
After spectacular outings against Florida State and Geor-
gia Tech, the sophomore threw for 150 yards on 9-of-25
passing and was sacked three times in the setback at
Virginia Tech.

OTON COLL Senior linebacker
Mike McLaughlin,
who was the Eagles' second-leading
tackler last year, made his season debut

ow David Cutcliffe-coached
teams improved to 15-2 when
scoring at least 40 points with this past
Saturday's 49-14 win over visiting North

a 17-7 loss to visiting
South Florida this past Saturday in
the first meeting between the schools.
Florida-State, which dropped to 29-3

Michigan in 1986.
U .1 The Yellow, Jackets held
the ball for 42 minutes and
6 seconds and limited visiting North
Carolina to 44 offensive plays in this
past Saturday's 24-7 victory. It was the
longest that a Georgia Tech team held

off the clock against Wake Forest. The
Tar Heels' 44 plays were the fewest by a
Georgia Tech opponent in 19 years.
M UI Sophomore wide receiver
Torrey Smith opened
this past Saturday's 34-13 loss to
Rutgers with a 24-yard kickoff return.
The play enabled Smith to become the
,school's all-time leader in kickoff return
yardage. Smith, who finished with 112
receiving yards and 120 kickoff return
yards, has collected at least 229 total
yards in five of his last six games.

games played outside North Carolina.
wI 'A! The Wolfpack had
em their best offensive
performance in 59 games with 530 yards
of total offense in this past Saturday's
38-31 come-from-behind win over
visiting Pittsburgh. However, they also
lost 81 yards on 12 penalty flags. The 12
penalties were the most by an N.C. State
squad since the 2005 team had 12 in a
season-opening loss to Virginia Tech.
IMIAII Defensive back LaRoy
Reynolds became the sixth
different true freshman this season to
see action when he made his debut in
the Cavaliers' 37-34 loss at Southern
Mississippi on Sept. 19. Virginia head
coach Al Groh has played 59 true
freshmen since taking over the program.
LBI Jacob Sykes registered the
Hokies' first blocked punt of
the season and the 123rd blocked kick
of the Frank Beamer era in the second

S Members of Alabama's 1979
national championship
team were honored at halftime of this
past Saturday's 35-7 victory over visiting
Arkansas. In addition to being legendary
head coach Paul "Bear" Bryant's only
12-0 team, the 1979 squad still ranks as
the school's best in five offensive and
two defensive categories.
PR i- Anthony Oden became
the first true freshman to
start on the offensive line for Arkansas
since 2001 when he earned the nod
at one of the two tackle positions this
past Saturday. The last Arkansas true
freshman to start on the offensive line
was Shawn Andrews.
N RUNN Senior quarterback Chris
Todd tied a single-game
school record by throwing five scoring
passes in this past Saturday's 54-30 win
over visiting Ball State. Todd is the first
player in school history to throw at least
four touchdown passes in back-to-back
games.
awOnRll The Gator Nation held its
collective breath after senior
quarterback Tim Tebow sustained a
concussion in the third quarter of this
past Saturday's 41-7 win at Kentucky.
Tebow was taken to University Medical
Center in Lexington, where he spent the
night before being released on Sunday
morning.
V AwIA sThere may be something
about Arizona State that
brings the out the best in sophomore
wide receiver A.3. Green. A year after
collecting 159 yards on eight grabs
against the Sun Devils, Green caught
eight passes for 153 yards, including
a career-long 56-yard touchdown, and
blocked his first field-goal in this past
Saturday's 20-17 win.
Junior Derrick Locke
u Y and senior Alfonso
Smith rushed for just 36 and 12 yards,
respectively, as the Wildcats dropped to
3-9 all-time against top-ranked teams.
Locke enters this week's game against
Alabama needing seven more yards to
reach 1,000 for his career, while Smith is
195 rushing yards shy of achieving the
1,000-yard milestone.
MW After scoring on a 93-yard punt
return and making two key plays
on a late goal-line stand that preserved
a 30-26 win at Mississippi State this
past Saturday, junior safety Chad Jones
earned National Defensive Player of
the Week honors from the Walter Camp
Foundation. Jones' 93-yard punt return
with 14:36 remaining ranks as the
second longest in program history.
iSiM Junior quarterback
Jevan Snead threw
for 107 yards and one score on 8-of-22
passingas the Rebels had their worst
offensive performance under Houston
Nutt with just 248 total yards in a 16-10
loss at South Carolina on Sept. 24. The
setback snapped an eight-game winning
streak, which was the program's longest
since ripping off 10 straight wins during
the 1971-72 campaign.
jW 'rKATE Senior running back
Anthony Dixon rushed
for 106 yards and two scores on 27
carries against LSU. The performance
allowed Dixon to become the school's
all-time leading scorer with 222 points,
extend his school record of career
rushing touchdowns to 33, and move
into second on the school's all-time
rushing list with 2,925 yards.
oil amalul With the victory
Over Mississippi, the
Gamecocks snapped a streak of futility
against top-five teams that dated back
to Oct. 24, 1981, and a seven-game
losing streak against ranked opponents
that stretched from Oct. 4, 2007.
IBiEEE Junior middle linebacker
Nick Reveiz most likely
suffered a season-ending knee injury
in this past Saturday's 34-23 win over
visiting Ohio. Reveiz was a former
walk-on who entered the game as the
team's third-leading tackler with 19 on
the season.
u nrIuT After missing the first
HEHBILI three games of the
season with an injured foot, redshirt
senior Jared Hawkins earned the start
at tailback for this past Saturday's 36-17
victory at Rice. Hawkins complemented
freshman Warren Norman's game-high-
119 rushing yards by running for 61
yards on 11 carries.

Dear Classified Guys,
For years I have been after my hus-
band to sell a clunky old desk he
keeps in our den. After much con-
vincing, he agreed to put it in the
yard sale we were holding. I priced it
to sell at only $20. After three hours I
was getting nervous since it had no
takers. Just when I was about to
lower the price, a woman came and
offered me $10 for it. "Absolutely
yes!" was what I wanted to say, but
before I could, another person
offered me the full $20. Not wanting
to be outdone, the first woman hag-
gled back, "$251" Before I knew it,
that old clunker was going to net
$45. I obviously accepted the higher
offer from the second person. The
first woman was so upset that she
stormed off and left the sale.
Then the surprise. The sec- "
ond woman decided not to /'-
take the desk! As you may
have guessed, its now back in
our den and my husband is
sitting pretty. I thought bidding wars
were a good thing. Should I have
just accepted the first offer?

Cash: It looks like the only one who
won on this bidding war was your hus-
band. You might want to make sure he


didn't plant that second person just so
he could keep the desk!
Carry: When an opportunity such as
yours shows up, it's easy to get caught
up in the moment. Seeing two people
willing to offer you more than your
asking price can be very exciting.
Cash: However, accepting the first
offer would have been the best solution
since your goal was to simply sell or
even give away the desk. Trying to
squeeze a few extra dollars from the
sale probably wasn't worth having the
desk back in your den, although your
husband may disagree!
.Carry: Generally speaking, yard
sales are best utilized to'simply sell

unwanted items and find them useful
homes. For most people a successful
sale is when they sell everything they
had out, not necessarily how much
money they made in the process.
Cash: With that goal in mind, it's
best to sell your items to the first per-
son that gives you a reasonable offer.
You could always take the name of a
second person in case things don't work
out.
Carry: In the future, you may want
to leave the bidding wars to the auction
houses. For everyday items at a yard
sale, just remember that selling them
means one less thing you have to put
back in your den!


THE

CLSSIFIE






Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


Going Once
While everyday auctions are very
popular on the internet, many large
sales are still found in some of the
famous auction houses around the
world. The Stockholm Auction House
of Sweden is the world's oldest auction
house, established back in 1674. And
it's not alone in its age. The world's
second largest auction house, Sotheby's,
held it's first auction in 1744. And the
title for largest auction house goes to
the world famous Christie's which held
its first auction in 1766.
Greedy Scheme
Being greedy rarely pays off as best
proved by Charles Ponzi. Born in Italy
in 1882, Charles became one of the most
famous con men. He created a scheme
that promised investors a 50% to 100%
return by buying postal reply coupons.
He paid off early investors with the
money he made from new investors. His
scheme racked up millions in losses in
the 1920's and coined the now famous
term "Ponzi Scheme". Charles Ponzi
was eventually convicted of mail fraud
and larceny. His final year was spent in
poverty at a charity hospital in 1949.

Pick Pocket
My mother is kind of quirky. To
make sure she has money wherever
she goes, she puts a bill in the pocket
of all her clothes. I had forgotten
about that fact until I helped her go
through her closet for a yard sale.
She sat on the bed while I held up
items from the wardrobe. Herjob
was to decide what to charge for each
piece.
First I held up a blouse. When 1
asked what it was worth, she told me
$20 and then reached into the pocket
and pulled out a $20 bill. When I
held up a pair of pants she said to
charge $5. Sure enough, I checked
the pocket and pulled out a $5 bill.
Holding up a jacket she never wore,
I asked, "How much for this one?"
"Oh that one's worthless," she said,
"It has no pockets!"
(Thanks to Janet C.)

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2009


Seven Days c
TALLAHASSEE -- The 12th season of The Florida
State University's annual festival of the fine and
performing arts has been announced. Running from Feb.
12 to Feb. 22, Tallahassee's premier arts event will offer a
unique combination of performances and exhibits ranging
from the Vienna Boys Choir to hip-hop dance, and from
the Company of Angels to Margaret Atwood's dystopian
vision of the future.
Even before the February festival begins, the Seven
Days spirit starts to build with an Oct. 28 concert by
Grammy-winning songwriter and performer Lyle Lovett
and his Large Band.
The annual festival spotlights The Florida State
University's commitment to the arts -- music, theater,
dance, visual art, film and literature.
"Seven Days is a cultural institution in Tallahassee, as
well as an invaluable educational resource for our
students in the arts," Florida State President T.K.
Wetherell said. "It's also one of the best examples of the
university engaging the community, to the benefit of
everyone."
Education is integral to the festival, and the majority of
the artists who perform at Seven Days also spend time
with Florida State students in master classes, giving
invaluable insights into craft, process and art. Students
and faculty are frequently invited to perform onstage with
the artists, as well.
"Seven Days of Opening Nights is much more than a
string of great performances," said Sally McRorie, dean
of the College of Visual Arts, Theatre & Dance. "It
engages our students, faculty, community and beyond
with quality arts and artists. That culture of achievement
is what a truly great university provides."

The full February schedule:

Feb. 12 -- "In Company with Angels": The Florida
State University Museum of Fine Arts displays stained-
glass church windows by Tiffany as well as the 18th-
century "The Annunciation" painting by Benedetto
Gennari II.
