 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.

Clayland Baptist

Church Homecoming
This is the 141st year Clayland Baptist Church has
been a church. it was organized in 1868. The original
meeting place was a brush arbor with split logs as bench-
es. Later a log church was built using logs harvested
from the property. Through the years renovations have
been made and additions have been built as membership
numbers and ministries have grown.
On October 11, Clayland will have its homecoming
celebration. The worship will begin at 10 a.m. with spe-
cial singing by Rachel Renee of Jacksonville. The regular
worship service will begin at 11 a.m. with Brother Hugh
Dampier delivering the message. Of course, as is Baptist
tradition, this will' be followed by dinner on he grounds.
Everyone is invited to come and worship and celebrate
with us!

A of your floor is either two shades lighter
or a lot darker than the color of the furniture. A
floor and furniture in the same color and wood is
only possible if you hane a carpet in a different
contrasting color between them. On a floor in a
neutral olor, e.g; natural \amnished oak, you
should not be afraid to combine furniture made of
very dark wood such as walnut. Light furniture
varnished in white will also look very attractive.
Furniture in light wood combined with pale walls
and a light floor create a calm ambience in the
home. This is a safe approach but you may end up
with dull interior. Too much tone on tone can
become monotonous. Stop in to Live Oak Paint &

Swine Flu Prevention and Treatment
The "swine flu" outbreak that started in the spring of 2009 is caused
by a specific HINI influenza A virus that is comprised of two swine
strains, one human strain, and one avian influenza strain. This
influenza virus can be transmitted from person to person. Infected
persons are likely to be contagious for at least 7 days after symptoms
begin, and possibly longer in children, the elderly, and persons with
chronic conditions. The most common signs and symptoms of the
2009 HINI influenza A virus include fever, cough, sore throat, and
headache. Symptoms may range from mild to severe, possibly
requiring hospitalization.
A vaccine to prevent pandemic HINI influenza A infection is
planned and should become available early to mid-October 2009.
Pregnant women, caregivers of children less than 6 months of age,
healthcare workers, and persons between 6 months to 24 years of age
are particularly recommended to receive vaccination. Oseltamivir
(Tamflu) and zanamivir (Relenza) are antiviral neuraminidase
inhibitor medications. Antivirals should be started as soon as possible
after the appearance of influenza symptoms. If persons infected with
HINI influenza A develop pneumonia, antibacterial medications
may be prescribed. 552998-F

A funeral



to remember
By Jim Holmes
All of us have "bad days." You know, those times
when a series of minor disasters impact us. But do
you think you can have a "bad day," AFTER you
have died? I do ... and I cite the case of the late
Jack O'Malley as evidence. (I've elected not to use
his real name out of respect for his family.)
Jack and his brood had moved to Fort Pierce
only months before he keeled over and died of a
heart attack. My wife and I were more acquain-
tances than friends, but because he died so soon af-
ter his arrival in Florida -- and because we lived
nearby -- we felt it only right that we should join
that small number of folks who attended his funer-
alJt .was there that Jack's post-mortem bad day be-

it seems Jack's funeral was one of two scheduled
in the church that morning. No problem, until we
realized the priest was burying the wrong person.
The 9 a.m. funeral had suddenly and disastrously
become the 11 a.m. funeral. Needless to say, Jack's
widow went into justifiable hysterics, resulting in a
very red-faced priest performing a "re-do."
Jack's bad day did not end there. After the casket
was loaded in the hearse, the tiny funeral proces-
sion -- consisting of only five vehicles -- waited
more than 30 minutes for a police escort. Finally,
the undertaker gave up and our little group set off
for the cemetery on our own.
We encountered a police officer a block away,
however, who emphatically directed us to turn onto
one of Fort Pierce's main highways. It was only af-
ter we'd followed his orders that we discovered the
cop apparently thought the hearse and our vehicles
were entrants in the annual Saint Lucie County
Cattleman's Parade!
Jack's bad day had just gotten worse. Not that he
was in any position to object, mind you.
And so here we are, a funeral procession hedged
in amongst brightly decorated floats, marching
bands, clowns and horse-mounted cowboys. But
there was still more to come. Among the parade's'
other participants was a small company of
Shriners, decked out in their red fez hats and bright
yellow vests, who -- in tiny go-carts -- darted in
and out of our group of mourners, all the while
tossing hard candy to the street-side crowd. If
Jack's widow was hysterical at the church, you can
imagine her condition now.
To his credit, the funeral director finally jumped
out of the hearse, halting the parade in its tracks,
until he convinced the Shriners to end their forays.
The stopped parade quickly brought an inquisitive
police officer who, when informed of our misad-
venture, rapidly helped us escape the parade route,
so as to complete.our supposedly somber journey.
The last I saw of the Shriners, they had all parked
their go-carts in a row and stood, ashen-faced, with
their tasseled fezzes over their hearts as we passed
by.
The rest of our trip to the cemetery was unevent-
ful. But ever since, whenever I see a. Shriner, I re-
member Jack and his one of a kind funeral.
And I have always wondered if his bad day real-
ly ended with the burial. The way things had gone
that morning, I can easily envision Jack arriving at
the Pearly Gates, being assured he was entitled to
spend eternity in Heaven, only to learn that the day'
before Saint Peter had misplaced his key.

OPINION


Elites and tyrants


Rep. Diane Watson said, in
praising Cuba's health care sys-
tem, "You can think whatever
you want to about Fidel Castro,
but he was one of the brightest
leaders I have ever met." W.E.B.
Dubois, writing in the National
Guardian (1953) said, "Joseph
Stalin was a great man; few oth-
er men of the 20th century ap-
proach his stature. ... But also --


and this was the highest proof of
his greatness -- he knew the common man, felt his prob-
lems, followed his fate." Walter Duranty called Stalin
"the greatest living statesman.. a quiet, unobtrusive
man." George Bernard Shaw expressed admiration for
Mussolini, Hitler and Stalin.
John Kenneth Galbraith visited Mao's China and
praised Mao and the Chinese economic system. Gunther
Stein of the Christian Science Monitor admired Mao Tse-
tung and declared ecstatically that "the men and women
pioneers of Yenan are truly new humans in spirit, thought
and action," and that Yenan itself constituted "a brand
new well integrated society, that has never been seen be-
fore anywhere." Michel Oksenberg, President Carter's
China expert, complained that "America (is) doomed to
decay until radical, even revolutionary, change funda-
mentally alters the institutions and values," and urged us
to "borrow ideas and solutions" from China.
Even Harvard's late Professor John K. Fairbank, by no
means the worst tyrant worshipper, believed that America
could learn much from the Cultural Revolution, saying,
"Americans may find in China's collective life today an
ingredient of personal moral concern for one's neighbor
that has a lesson for us all." Keep in mind that estimates
of the number of Chipese deaths during China's Cultural
Revolution range from 2 to 7 million people. Mao Tse-
tung was admired by many academics and leftists across
our country. Just think back to the campus demonstra-
tions of the '60s and '70s when campus radicals, often ac-
companied by their professors, marched around singing
the praises of Mao and waving Mao's little red book,
"Quotations from Chairman Mao Tsetung." Forty years
later some of these campus radicals are tenured profes-
sors and administrators at today's universities and col-
leges, as well as schoolteachers and principals indoctri-
nating our youth.
The most authoritative tally of history's most murder-




ll'- I


ous regimes is in a book by Uni-
versity of Hawaii's Professor
Rudolph J. Rummel, "Death by
Government." Statistics are pro-
vided at his website:
(http://www.hawaii.edu/pow-
erkills/welcome.html). The Nazis
murdered 20 million of their
own people and those in nations
they captured. Between 1917 and
1987, Stalin and his successors


murdered, or were otherwise re-
sponsible for the deaths of, 62 million of their own peo-
ple. Between 1949 and 1987, Mao Tsetung and'his suc-
cessors were responsible for the deaths of 76 million
Chinese.
Today's leftists, socialists and progressives would bris-
tle at the suggestion that their agenda differs little from
Nazism. However, there's little or no distinction between
Nazism and socialism. Even the word Nazi is short for
National. Socialist German Workers Party. The origins of
the unspeakable horrors of Nazism, Stalinism and Mao-
ism did not begin in the '20s, '30s and '40s. Those horrors
were simply the end result of long evolution of ideas
leading to consolidation of power in central government
in the quest for "social justice." It was decent but mis-
guided earlier generations of Germans, like many of to-
day's Americans, who would have cringed at the thought
of genocide, who built the Trojan horse for Hitler to take
over.
Few Americans have the stomach or ruthlessness to do
what is necessary to make their governmental wishes
come true. They are willing to abandon constitutional
principles and rule of law so that the nation's elite, who
believe they are morally and intellectually superior to the
rest of us, can have the tools to implement "social jus-
tice," Those tools are massive centralized government
power. It just turns out last century's notables in acquir-
ing powerful central government, in the name of social
justice, were Hitler, Stalin, Mao, but the struggle for so-
cial justice isn't over yet, and other suitors of this dubi-
ous distinction are waiting in the wings.

GUEST COLUMN


On using the term 'friend' loosely


LIonce read that a
"friend" is someone,
who doesn't mind
you calling him for
help at 4 a.m. And a
"good friend" is
someone who will
help you hide a
body.
In the movie "Wyatt Earp," one of
Earp's deputies asked Doc Holiday
during a fierce shootout with the
Clantons and the McLarys just why
he would stand so firmly with Earp.
Holiday said, "Wyatt's my friend."
The deputy said, "Well I've got lots
of friends."
Holiday responded, "I don't."
Obviously, he was a good friend to
Earp.
The word friend is tossed about
rather loosely at times I've noticed.
For instance, in the past month I've
received more than 20 e-mails from
people I've never met who have ie-
ferred to me as "dearest friend," "my
dear friend," good friend," and to-
day, "my elite friend." Not only have
we never fished a bream bed togeth-
er, but we've never even said good
morning to each other.
And not only were these people not
my friends in the conventional sense,


I would consider them enemies be-
cause they are trying to scam me. All
of these e-mails were from con artists
trying to trick me into investments.
I suppose that they think address-
ing me as "friend" will soften me up
to the point of actually considering
their scams.
When we talk about these scams at
the coffee club, the question bound to
be ask&d is, "Who is dumb enough to
fall for that crap?" Well, apparently
we do have those mentally chal-
lenged people who actually do fall
for them. These scammers basically
follow the old concept of "shoot in
the creek long enough and you're
bound to hit a fish."
My question is this: Why haven't
the feds set up a sting on these scam-
mers? But then I.also asked, why did-
n't the Securities and Exchange Com-
mission heed several years of warn-
ings about Bernie Madoff? Go figure.
I suppose if steroids had been in-
volved in any of these scams, investi-
gations would have been hot and
heavy.
Now the one who referred to me as
"elite friend" did strike my curiosity.
I've never been called "elite" before.
I have been called a lot of other
things.


The one who called me "elite
friend" was trying to sell me on
something billed as a "high intellect"
project. In other words, some fellow
who writes motivational books and
makes motivational speeches for big
bucks would like to improve my life,
for a fee of course. I ran down his list
of subjects and it was all about what
I call "head stuff." There was not a
mention of helping me with gout or
kidney stones or dilapidated plumb-
ing. In other words, he can show me
how to have a better outlook on life,
assuming I'm not distracted by the
feeling of a knife stuck in my lower
back or that my big toe might ex-
plode at any minute.
Now don't get me wrong, I do have
some real friends. They would let me
borrow hedge clippers, battery charg-
ers and hole diggers. I would not
push my luck to ask to borrow a bass
boat, however. And just to clear the
air, I've never asked any of my
friends to help me hide a body. That
does not imply that I don't know
where some bodies are buried.

If you were in Branford last year
during March, you couldn't help
but notice the multitude of ca-
noeists and kayakers pitching hun-
dreds of tents at Ivey Park and
making their way into town. The
group paddled from The Spirit of
the Suwannee State Park to Mana-
tee Springs over the course of eight
days for the third'year in a row.
This year, they are back to do it
again.
"It has a positive economic im-
pact on our little town," Branford
Town Council member Charlie
Daniels said of Paddle Florida's
yearly stop in Branford. "They visit
local stores and stop in restaurants."
Daniels says he enjoys seeing the
nearly 200 canoeist and kayakers
pitching tents and resting on the
banks of the Suwannee. "It is pretty
colorful," he said.
These canoeists and kayakers are
not only paddling for fun, but also
for the environment. The group
spreads information on protecting
and restoring the Suwannee River's
resources along the way. In Bran-
ford, the group will host a represen-

Peace Baptist Church, at 7794 S.
E. US 27, Branford, is excited and
looking forward to welcome
African pastor Moffat Mayo join
us on Sunday, Oct. 11 at the 11
a.m. service.
Bro. Moffat has been invited and
is sponsored by Westside Baptist
Church of Warner Robins, Ga., and
will be accompanied to Branford
by his good friend, Bob Smith Jr.
of Warner Robins. Bob had trav-
eled to Africa on a mission trip
with his church where he first met
Bro. Moffat and became quick
friends. When Bro. Bob visited
Peace Baptist Church with his par-
ents, Bob and Shirley Smith of
O'Brien, (former missionaries to
Bolivia), he told of his experiences
in Africa and the kindred spirit he
felt with this African pastor. After
hearing of the great need there, this
triggered an interest for the congre-
gation of Peace Baptist Church,
who decided to become a part of


this ministry in Africa with their
support.
Bro. Moffat and his wife Olivia
have five daughters and one son,
plus many street children and or-
phans they feed and care for. He
pastors a church in his hometown
of Victoria Falls, but has also
planted nine other churches in the
"bush" which he oversees and dis-
ciples.
. Peace Baptist Church invites
everyone to come and hear about
the hardships and blessings in a
land where food is scarce, but their
faith is strong that the Lord will
provide. Learn.more about life and
the ministry in Africa.
There will also be a fish fry at 4
p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 10 at the
church to welcome Bro. Moffat to
Branford, at which time we will
have an opportunity to have fel-
lowship and ask him questions.
For further information, call the
church office at 386-935-4681.

O'BRIEN AND OUR NEIGHBORS

Bits & Pieces from


south Suwannee


By Ana Smith
I want to give a public
and personal thank you to
all those people I've met in
the last few years who res-
cue, foster and take the
time to help the hundreds
of stray animals that get
"dumped" in their neigh-
borhoods, all at their own
expense. This past week-
end I visited with a few
such people, in this partic-
ular case all women, who
have turned their homes
into a haven for cats that
often have special needs
that shelters in small coun-
ties like ours cannot afford
to take in, usually because
they do not have the fund-
ing for the medicines
and/or are able to provide
the round-the-clock care
some of these cats need for
a few days, until thdy are
back to a reasonably
healthy condition.
I am grateful that I am
able to help one such per-
son in our own community,
and I know the satisfaction
I feel when any of the kit-
tens I foster gets well and
is put in a good, "forever"
home. If you are one of
those people who finds a
stray and takes the time
and concern to take that
animal in and give it a
chance at a happy life, God
bless you abundantly. And
I know the local shelters
must feel the same way,


that folks in our communi-
ty care about the hundreds
of such animals that often
never make it to the shelter
before they are run down,
shot, or die from starva-
tion. A big, heartfelt
THANK YOU to every
one of you!
Don't forget this Sunday
is "Homecoming Day" at
O'Brien Baptist Church.
Morning worship will be-
gin at 10:30 a.m. instead of
our usual 11, followed by a
huge potluck dinner in the
Fellowship Hall. There
will be lots of singing dur-
ing morning service, and I
personally hope we will
continue the tradition of
gathering around the piano
in the sanctuary after the.
meal for more wonderful,
old-fashioned singing of
beloved hymns in an infor-
mal group. There will be
no evening worship.
On Tuesday, Oct. 13, the
"Sonshiners" seniors group
will have a special pro-
gram presented by Randy
Torrance, curator of the
Live Oak Historical Muse-
um. The program will be
presented at 6:30 p.m. at
O'Brien Baptist Church
and promises to be an in-
formative and interesting
evening of historical infor-
mation about our area.
Everyone is welcome.
This is not a potluck event,
but a special event for this


County
month. The "Sonshiners"
usually meet the second
Tuesday of the month in
the fellowship hall of OBC
with a potluck lunch or a
trip and meal at another lo-
cation. It's a really nice
time of fellowship for
everyone. You don't have
to belong to O'Brien Bap-
tist Church to participate,
so come join us and meet
some really fine folks!
Girl Scout Troup #130
meets at OBC this Satur-
day, but I don't have the
time. Call the church of-
fice at 935-1503 for more
information if you have a
child that would like to
join this local troop.
From "Humorous Quota-
tions":
"Night falls but never
breaks, and dawn breaks
but never falls."
"Sticks in a bundle are
unbreakable!"
"Most families don't
want father burdened with
money, so they relieve him
of his burden." -
"Old burglars never die;
they just steal away."
"Some folks can look so
busy doing nothing that
they seem indispensable."
"If you want to get a job
done, give it to a busy
man. The other kind has
no time."
Enjoy this gorgeous fall
weather. Have a great
week. God bless!

Stay fire smart!



Don't get burned.


The Safety Line
From Suwannee County Fire/Rescue


By Paul Haas
Suwannee County
Fire Marshal

SujA e a child touches a
hot-stove, as the cliche "
goes, he learns his lesson:
Stay away-rom a hot stove.
This clich does not take
into account the pain and
suffering from burns, and
burns should not be part of
the learning process.
That's why Suwannee


County Fire/Rescue has
teamed up with the
National Fire Protection
Association (NFPA) for
Fire Prevention Week 2009
- October 4-10 to urge
Suwannee County residents
to "Stay Fire Smart! Don't
Get Burned." This year's
campaign focuses on ways
to keep homes fire safe and
prevent painful burns.
Additionally, fire safety
educators will be teaching


local residents how to plan
and practice escape from a
home in case a fire occurs.
The statistics are
staggering. Each year
roughly 3,000 people dies
as a result of home fires and
bums, and more-than
200,00( individuals are
seen in the nation's
emergency rooms for burn
injuries.
'The most common types
of burn injuries result from
fire or flame burns, scalds
and contact burns," said
Suwannee County Public
Safety Director Charlie
Conner. "Burns are painful
and can result in serious
scarring and even death.

By Carnell Hawthorne Jr
James Darrell Green, 32,
of Live Oak was arrested
Saturday and charged with
armed burglary, possession
of a firearm by a convicted
felon, and grand theft, after
he allegedly broke into a lo-
cal home in May, according
to a sheriffs report.
Green, according to a
statement taken from a sec-
ond suspect, took a pry bar
to the door of a local resi-
dence. Once inside, he was
said to have stolen two tele-
visions, guns, jewelry and
assorted electrical items.
The stolen objects were
valued at $5,750, the report
stated. Nearly $300 in dam-
ages were assessed to the
door of the house and walls.
Green is a convicted
felon, the report states, and
as the crime took place, he
allegedly armed, himself
with several rifles and am-
munition. The date of the
incident was May 13.

Priority groups include:
pregnant women, health-
care providers, household
contacts of infants less
than 6 months of age, chil-
dren and young adults
from ages 6 months to 24
years old, and people ages
25 to 64 with underlying
medical conditions .
The weekly allocation of
dosages made available to
the health department may
vary, Blackmon said.
The health department
will set up points of disper-
sion (P.O.D.) around the
county to aide in getting
vaccination shots to mem-
bers of the public, said
Nursing Director Wanda
Crowe, of the health de-
partment.
P.O.D. locations where
vaccines will be adminis-
tered include: the Suwan-
nee County Health Depart-
ment located on Nobles
Ferry Road in Live Oak,
all county schools, Exhibi-
tion Hall I at the Suwan-
nee County Coliseum,
Hatch Park in Branford,
the Advent Christian Vil-
lage, Spirit of the Suwan-
nee Music Park and Well-
born Baptist Church.
Individuals 10 years or
older will only be required
one dose of the H1N1 vac-
cine. Children ages 9 or
younger are required to be
administered a second
dose, so health officials
will make a second trip
into local elementary
schools 21 to 28 days after
the first treatment. The
nasal vaccine is only rec-
ommended for healthy and
non-pregnant individuals
ages 2 to 49.
"Immunity develops 8 to
10 days after a person re-
ceives the vaccines,"
Crowe said.
Infants younger than 6
months old are not allowed-
to receive vaccination
treatment. Therefore,
health department officials
recommend that all care-
givers and those who work
closely with infants re-
ceive the vaccine.
As previously reported,
90 percent of flu cases that
have occurred lately are
considered H1N1, as op-
posed to seasonal flu. Most
cases have occurred within
people below age 24. The

an estimated 60,000. By
late September, 102 deaths
were attributed to H1N1,
according to national health
records.
"Most doctors are diag-
nosing H1N1 by symp-
toms, rather than with test
swabs, except for in cases
where individuals are al-
ready hospitalized," Black-
mon said.
Symptoms may include
fevers, coughing, sore
throats, runny nose, body
aches, chills, fatigue,
headache, vomiting and di-
arrhea.
In Suwannee County,
there have been 10 con-
firmed cases of H1N1, ac-
cording to local health
records.
Blackmon recommends
that people develop a habit
of keeping their hands san-


itized and learn to cover
their coughs by coughing
into their sleeve. The HIN1
germ can live on surfaces
between two to eight hours,
she said.
If a person is sick with
the flu, she said, only one
person should act as a care-
giver so that the illness is
not further spread.
"A person should only re-
turn to work or school after
they have been without
fever or without medication
for 24 hours and show no
further symptoms," Black-
mon said.
If anyone thinks they
have HIN1, they should
contact their doctor imme-
diately, she said.
"We know that we cannot
stop H1N1, but our purpose
is to alert people, not to
scare them."


The 1976 vaccination program was
halted when the CDC determined
that 'vaccine recipients had a higher
risk for GBS than those who were
not vaccinated.' Health officials say
they will keep a close eye on the
situation this time around.



Shades of '76?

to have a similar safety
profile as seasonal flu vac-
cines, which have very
.good safety track records."
The CDC states on its
Web site that the seasonal
influenza vaccine has not
been consistently associat-
ed with Guillain-Barre
syndrome (GBS), a disor-
der in which a person's
own immune system dam-
ages nerve cells, causing
muscle weakness and
sometimes paralysis. In
rare cases, people have
died of GBS.
In 1976, scientists re-
ported a link between the
disorder and vaccinations
for swine flu administered
that year. About 500 cases
of GBS were attributed to
the vaccine. Roughly 45
million people were inocu-
lated that year.
However, researchers
say they "do not expect
GBS cases to occur after
vaccination with the 2009
H1N1 vaccine."
However, GBS can oc-
cur naturally. According
to the CDC, 3,000 to
6,000 people in the United
States develop GBS every
year, whether or not they
were vaccinated. That's 1
or 2 per 1,000,000.
"Since 1976, numerous
studies have been done to
evaluate if other flu vac-
cines were associated with
GBS. In most studies, no
association was found, but
two studies suggested that

al person out of 1 million

vaccinated people may be
at risk for GBS associated
with the seasonal influenza
vaccine."
The 1976 vaccination
program was halted when
the CDC determined that
"vaccine recipients had a
higher risk for GBS than
those who were not vacci-
nated."
Health officials say they
will keep a close eye on the
situation this time around.
"To monitor whether
people who receive the
2009 H1N1 vaccine have
an increased risk for GBS,
US. public health officials
will determine if the num-
ber of GBS cases reported
among people who receive
the 2009 H1N1 vaccine is
higher than the number of
cases reported in the gener-
al population," the CDC
Web site notes.
Local officials also be-
lieve things will go
smoother this time.
"The H1N1 vaccine has
been produced in the same
way the seasonal flu vac-
cine has been made for
years," said Pamela Black-
mon, administrator of the
Suwannee County Health
Department. "The clinical
trials have found the vac-
cine to be safe and effec-
tive in preventing H1N1."
Shifting gears, the CDC
says the FDA will be man-
ufacturing the 2009 H1N1
vaccines in several formu-
lations, some of which will
come in multi-dose vials
containing thimerosal as a
preservative.
"Thimerosal is a mer-
cury-based preservative that
has been used for decades in
the United States in multi-
dose vials of some vaccines
to prevent the growth of mi-
croorganisms, such as bac-
teria and fungi, which may
contaminate them," the
CDC states.
"Some vaccine manufac-
turers will be producing
2009 HIN1 influenza vac-
cine in single-dose units,
which will not require the
use of thimerosal as a
preservative."
The CDC states that it is
"aware that the presence of
the preservative thimerosal
in vaccines and suggestions
of a relationship with
autism has raised con-
cerns." However, "numer-
ous studies have found no
association between
thimerosal exposure and
autism," the center states.
The intranasal H1N1
vaccine will not contain
thimerosal, according to
the CDC.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: What sort of things can a dentist tell
just by looking in my mouth?
A: Your dentist can tell more about you
than just your dental health as he
examines your mouth. Gums, for
instance, that have turned bright, beefy
red or purple may indicate heart
disease. Gums that bleed at the
slightest touch may be a symptom of
Type 2 diabetes. Kidney disease
sometimes manifests itself in a sweet
ammonia-type smell on a person's
breath. Fiery red swollen gums that
never heal can indicate leukemia.
Swollen gums can also result from the
hormonal changes that come with
pregnancy.
If you have undiagnosed osteoporosis,
which means your bone density is
declining, dark spots on dental x-rays
may show air pockets and dead bone.
Gums that have pulled away from the
teeth and fractured teeth themselves
may indicate abnormally high stress.
Upper front teeth that are worn thin and
have lost substantial enamel may
indicate bulimia, an eating disorder that
involves bringing and purging, often by
forced vomiting. So when your dentist
examines the inside of your mouth,
expect it to take a few minutes. Talk with
you dentist about your overall health
situation.

Suwannee loses



a nailbiter 28-21


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
The Suwannee Bulldogs lost to the
Taylor County Bulldogs 28-21 Friday
night in Perry. Taylor scored the winning
touchdown with five minutes left.
Taylor County started the game on the
19-yard line after a kickoff from
Suwannee's Austin O'Connor. Five
first downs and 60 yards later Suwannee
took over after a wide right field goal
attempt from the 36 yard line by Taylor.
Suwannee's offense couldn't move the
ball and a 24-yard punt by Tripp
Prevatt gave the ball back to Taylon
Suwannee later advanced 53 yards to


the seven. Greg Swinson accounted for
47 of those yards. Suwannee then scored
on a seven-yard Jimmie Taylor pass to
Andre Zander. O'Connor's kick made
it 7-0.
On the ensuing drive by Taylor,
Suwannee's Jared Hendry sent Taylor
back 10 yards and the football up for
grabs, which Zander recovered.
After a brief drive by Suwannee,
Taylor returned a fumble for a 53-yard
touchdown to tie the game.
The X-Man, Xavier Perry, then
scored on a 30-yard Jimmie Taylor pass
for Suwannee's biggest play of the night

downs Paxon


The Branford Bucca-
neers proved they have
what it takes to be a
good football team Fri-
day night after defeating
Paxon 33-26.
The kids played hard
and were taken off guard
at first by Paxon's no-
huddle offense. But the
Bucs managed to learn
from their mistakes early
on and by the second
half, they were looking
strong. \
"The kids battled real
hard and played a really
good athletic team," said
coach Bill Wiles. 'The
kids did a good job, they
hung in there and al-
lowed us to adjust."
Branford completed
67 plays with no
turnovers and amassed
an impressive 435 rush-
ing yards to Paxon's 64.
Branford ran the ball 53
times, passed for 78 and
had 20 first downs.
John Perry accounted
for 343 yards. He had
321 yards in the win
against Trenton Sept. 11.

The quote that made Jim Mora
famous. We lov thenf and then
again we hate them. By the time you read
this the Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins
will have decided which one gets the right to
get beat by the Yankees: In the best playoff
ever, the 1962 Los Angeles Dodgers, lead by
Koufax, Drysdale, Wills and Tommy Davis,
lose to the San Francisco Giants lead by
Mays, MarichaLand McCovey. Decided by a
three game series and won in.the 9th inning
of the third game. But that was a different
kind of playoff.
When two teams tied we have an infinite
manner of ways to determine a winner.

Playoffs?

Did you say playoffs?


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
Continued From Page 1B

read like a menu at a
Chinese restaurant. We
very rarely allow teams to
be equal. No more ties,
Texas tiebreaker, with
Kansas tiebreaker rules,
sudden death overtime
play off. Sometimes a bit
too confusing, but you
have t6 have a winner. If
you don't have a winner
you both are losers.
Remember when we
rooted for a Florida-FSU
tie? Maybe you didn't
root that way, but you
don't own a sporting
goods store.
The other playoffs are
the ones we like. It allows
our team that really didn't
win the championship to


have a chance to win the
championship. The NBA
playoffs include the top
eight teams, so if you can
fog a mirror you have a
chance. The NHL playoffs
last half as long as the
NBA playoffs,
approximately one light
year. Football at least has
conference champions
competing, except for the
wild cards. Everyone
wants a playoff for the
National College Football
Championship. Unless of
course your team finishes
number one in the polls.
In which case playoffs
aren't practical. The final
four starts with the final
65.
The Tigers and Twins
will have a playoff to get
to the playoffs to get to
the World Series, which is
really a playoff. I think we
should just call some of


these things tiebreakers
and others win
advancements. Coach
Parcells simply referred to
the process as getting to
the dance. I assume the
Super Bowl was the prom.
I think it was either
Confucius or Belichick
who said, "Even a journey
of an undefeated season
must end with playoff win
or your journey has not
reached its destination." I
might be paraphrasing
Don Shula.
For the next month we
will be tracking the
baseball playoffs. I think
the Yankees and Cardinals
will see each other in the
Fall Classic. Of course
with longer playoffs it
might be the winter
classic. Root for Colorado
if you like baseball games
played in the snow. Yeah,
I said playoffs.

and a 14-7 Suwannee lead.
Taylor County
controlled the ball for
about a minute until
Jackson Brown
intercepted and returned
the ball 12 yards.
Suwannee's drive stalled
and Prevatt booted the
ball 44 yards back to
Taylor.
Tre Robinson sacked
Taylor's quarterback with
seconds to go in the half.
A great tackle by Hendry
ended the half.
, Taylor County returned
a Swinson fumble 23
yards for a score early in
the third. The point after
attempt failed and
Suwannee led 14-13.
Taylor County added


another score on a 10-play
drive. A successful two-
point conversion made it
21-14.
Suwannee tied the game
on a one-yard run by Greg
Swinson in the fourth
quarter.
Twelve plays later,
Taylor added a 25-yard
touchdown. Taylor led 28-
21.
Taylor County kicked
off from the 35. Zander
fumbled at the 46.
Suwannee took the ball
back with about two
minutes left to go. The
game ended when Taylor
County took a knee after
an interception.
"The loss is my fault, in
20 years of coaching I
don't think I have had a
defense that I coached


mess up a game plan on
defense quite as much as
we did that one," said
coach Jerry Odom. "I
obviously did a poor job
of communicating what I
wanted from my front
seven during the week of
practice. That coupled
with the turnovers caused
us to lose a game that we
probably shouldn't have.
Give Taylor credit they
executed well and are very
well coached."
Jared Hendry was
WQHL's defensive player
of the game. Hendry was a
major force on defense
and caused a Taylor
County fumble. Joe
McMillian was the
defensive player of the
game.

Dear Classified Guys,
When it comes to selling a home,
how important are good neighbors?
My neighbors are very friendly peo-
ple, but they have a few quirks that
can catch you off guard. Both the
husband and wife mow their lawn in
bikinis to work on their suntans. It
may sound exciting, but as nice as
they are, they sure wouldn't win any
beauty contests! The first time I saw
them years ago, I was shocked. To
Make matters worse, they hang out
their underwear and other unmen-
tionables on the patio for all to see. I
know you can't choose your neigh-
bors, but now that I've put my house
up for sale, I'm worried. I doubt that
asking them to add a layer or two
while mowing the lawn would work,
nor would asking them to put their
unmentionables in the dryer. While
some people say I need to A
tell potential buyers about
the neighbors, others say ?A
there's no problem. What
should I do? Do I need to
mention the unmentionables
to interested parties?
Cash: Although you may not like
your neighbor's choice of yard-wear
fashion, it doesn't sound like they're

exposing you to that much of a prob-
lem! It's possible you're worrying for
no reason.
Carry: It is true that you can't always
choose your neighbors. And most of us
have our idiosyncrasies that others may
not appreciate. Your neighbor's choice
of attire and laundry drying may not be
your cup of tea, but the good news
is...you're moving!
Cash: As for selling your home,
you're not likely to have a problem
either. Many buyers take the time to
consider all sorts of issues such as
house condition, schools and even the
neighborhood. However, despite how
important it can be, they rarely take


into account the actual neighbors.
Carry: If you are still worried, avoid
laundry day or show your house during
the week when your neighbors are less
likely to be doing yard work. But more
importantly, focus your attention on all
the great attributes of the house, rather
than the neighbor's unmentionables.
Cash: Remember that your neigh-
bors are not doing anything wrong.
While you are obligated to disclose
things about your home to potential
buyers, your opinion of the neighbor's
attire is not one of them.
Carry: Besides, you never know
what the new owners will like to wear
when they mow their lawn!


~c;p~


Jonesing
Many people judge how well they
are doing in life by comparing them-
selves to their neighbors, often referred
to as "Keeping up with the Joneses".
But where did the phrase originate? It's
actually a term popularized by a comic
strip of the same name created by
Arthur Momand in 1913. After living
in Cedarhurst, New York and experi-
encing people trying to keep up with
the well-to-do class, he and his wife
moved to a cheap apartment in
Manhattan. He used his experiences in
Cedarhurst to create the comic strip that
ran in newspapers for 28 years.
In the Neighborhood
Being a good neighbor can have its
benefits. The Department of Housing
and Urban Development (HUD) offers
a "Good Neighbor Next Door Sales
Program". The program, available to
law enforcement officers, teachers, fire-
fighters and emergency medical techni-
cians, offers a 50% discount off the list
price ofpre-selected homes located in
revitalization areas. To receive the dis-
count, owners are required to live in the
home for a period of 36 months.

Backfire
My two boys have started playing
practical jokes around the neighbor-
hood. While most of their pranks are
harmless, like moving lawn orna-
ments or turning on sprinklers at
night, they've begun to get a little
more mischievous.
Last week they played ajoke on my
neighbor next door. It seems he went
to use the lawnmower he kept on his
back porch and found that the kids
had removed two wheels and propped
it up on blocks. When he realized it
was another prank, he had no choice
but to call and tell me about it.
"I'm so sorry," I started to apologize.
"Oh there's no need to apologize to
me," he interrupted. "I borrowed the
mower from your husband last week!"
(Thanks to Gina B)

here is both primary as well as secondary lung cancer. Primary lung cancer
actually starts in the lungs, and the cancer cells are actually abnormal lung cells.
Secondary lung cancer occurs when cancer from another part of the body travels,
or metastasizes, to the lungs. This-is referred to as secondary because the lungs are
secondary when compared to the primary location of the cancer. Secondary lung
cancer actually has a,different course of treatment than primary lung cancer, and
that's because secondary lung cancer is not actually lung cancer. Rather, secondary
lung cancer is considered to be whichever type of cancer initially invaded the
body. For example, a woman who is diagnosed with breast cancer and then has
that cancer metastasize into the lungs is not considered to have lung cancer.
Rather, the metastasized cancer is still considered breast cancer, even though it has,.
since spread to the lungs. To learn more, visit the American Cancer society Web :'

existing dealerships, according to a spokesman for

The acquisitions are the latest of several changes

vehicle sales.

the Accardi location. The state of Florida has
approved the purchases from Rountree-Moore as
well as the automobile factories involved.

Irish traditional trio


to perform at


SFree Fridays' series-
I U


GAINESVILLE An Triur is
Irish Gaelic for "three people,"
describing the essential simplicity
of the group of the same name and
their music. The group is a bi-
coastal Irish traditional trio that
formed in Gainesville in 2006. An
Triur is made up of Larre Reeves on
flute, whistle, bodhran and
concertina; John Maze on uilleann
pipe, whistle, bodhran and
accordion; and Mick Richmond on
vocal, whistle, guitar and bouzouki.
Reeves and Maze are award-
winning Irish traditional musicians,
teachers, recording artists and
performers.
Whereas Irish traditional music is
not indigenous to central Florida,
there is a strong Irish music and
dance community in Gainesville. At
the concert, the band will be joined
on stage by a dance group from the
Williston School of Irish Dance led
by Sarah Ingley and solo dancer
Elijah Eyerly, both of whom are
champion Irish dancers. In the past,
band members Larre Reeves and
John Maze performed with dance
groups such as Inisheer (founded by
Piper Call) and the Hogan School of
Irish Dance (founded by dance
champion Allison Hogan). An Tridr
has participated in open Irish


Traditional music sessions at the
Shamrock Irish Pub, Durty Nelly's
Irish Pub and, most recently,
Brophy's Irish Pub.
Reeves grew up in an Irish-
American family in south Florida
and has played around the U.S. and
abroad. He is a founding member of
the Blue Druids, Coyne and Reeves
and An Triir. Maze grew up in a
SScots-Irish family in Appalachian
Virginia, learning the rare Irish
uilleann bagpipes and founding the
Ryegrass Rollers and An Tridr with
Reeves and Richmond. Both have
played with various ensembles
including the world famous
Chieftains. Richmond, now living
in Portland, Ore., is a stalwart
Gainesville musician who is a
founding member of such local
favorites as Skatterbrainz and Spike
the Cat. Coming from a rock and
ska background, he followed his
Irish-American roots into Irish
traditional music in the past several
years. A native Floridian,
Richmond brings a funk and an,
edge to the trio as the principle
songwriter and arranger of vocals
and accompaniment.
Irish traditional music dates back
hundreds of years and was carried
to the U.S. by early immigrants. It


developed and expanded in
popularity throughout cities, such as
::,New.,York, Boston, Chicago and
Baltimore. The music also spread
into rural areas of the early U.S.
such as the Appalachian Mountains
where farming Irish immigrants
tended to move their communities
after the great potato famine of the
mid-18th century. An Tridir
recordings are available on iTunes,
as well as on their Web site
www.myspace.com/antriur.
The Downtown Plaza "Free
Friday" concerts run from 8 p.m. to
10 p.m. every Friday night this year
from May 1 through October 30.
The Bo Diddley Community Plaza
