3 armed


suspects


sought in


robberies
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com
Two robberies were reported ear-
ly Monday, according to a Live
Oak Police Department press re-
lease.
At approximately 1 a.m., LOPD
officers responded to a robbery call
at the Royal Inn Motel, 966 N.
Ohio.
According to the victim, he was
sleeping in a friend's vehicle at the
motel when the driver's door was
suddenly pulled opened and two
large individuals pulled him from
the vehicle and threw him on the
ground, according to information
given to officers.
The unidentified thieves wres-
tled the victim's wallet containing
more than $300 from his pocket,
the victim told police. The suspects
then reportedly fled south from the
motel onto Hamilton Avenue in a
white vehicle. The victim stated
that he was not hurt and required no
medical attention.

Water woes

won't go away
200 gather in Branford
to address dwindling aquifer,
threat from South Florida
By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.Iivingston@gaflnews.com
Experts gathered at a forum hosted by state
Representative Debbie Boyd Monday night in
Branford to express concern over North Flori-
da's dwindling water supply.
Experts outlined a new plan to save the
Floridian Aquifer, North Florida's main
source of water, while Boyd voiced her oppo-
sition to allowing South Florida access to our
water.
"I've been a huge advocate of keeping our
water here and not being piped to other ar-
eas," said Boyd. It is most important to pro-
tect local sources first, as per current state
law, agreed Suwannee River Water Manage-
ment District Deputy Executive Director Kirk
Webster.
"They are looking for water, they need wa-
ter," Webster told a crowd of about 200 at
Branford Elementary School. However, Web-
ster noted, "we do not have endless supplies"
of the resource.
Lauren Davis, a Future Farmers of America
member and student at Cedar Key Middle
School, compared North Florida to the ant in
Aesop's fable, working hard to protect its re-
sources, while a wasteful South Florida the
grasshopper foolishly refuses to conserve,
then turns to us for help.
In some versions of the story the ant takes
pity on the grasshopper and shares his food
with him. In real life we may not have a
choice.

Guilty verdict



in fatal crash


Donald Robert Davis Jr., 30, right, was found guilty of vehicular homicide by a Suwan-

Branford man convicted

of vehicular homicide


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


"Mom, I'm going to help you get a
cell phone in Lake City when I get off
work. See you tonight, I love
you." -


Those were the last words
Ruby Votano heard from her
son Joshua Franklin Votano,
28, around 6:15 a.m. on June
30, 2008. A short while later,
around 6:30, Votano was killed
as he traveled to work on CR
137 in Suwannee County.
Thursday, Donald Robert
Davis Jr., 30, of Branford was
found guilty of vehicular


homicide in the crash that killed Votano
of Lake City. Davis was northbound on
CR 137 when his 1997 Cadillac crossed
the centerline and struck the southbound
1993 Ford Escort of Votano.
It took the six-person jury
only an hour to return with a
guilty verdict in the Live Oak
case.
"The bottom line here is
whether you believe the defen-
: dant operated his vehicle in a
reckless, harmful manner,"
said prosecutor Craig Jacobsen
in his closing argument to ju-
rors Thursday.

Management of Parkinson's Symptoms
Parkinson's disease is a condition characterized by progressive
neurologic deterioration. A neurotransmitter chemical known as
dopamine plays a large role in the development of Parkinson's. Other
neurotransmitter substances that may be involved include
acetylcholine, glutamate, serotonin, and norepinephrine. Symptoms
include tremor, rigidity, and changes in posture.
While there is currently no cure for Parkinson's, medications are
available to manage the condition and to improve the quality of life of
those affected. Levodopa is prescribed for Parkinson's because it is
converted to dopamine in the body. Carbipdopa is given along with
levodopa because this additional medication prevents nausea and
vomiting that could occur when levodopa is taken alone. Sinemet is
made up of levodopa and carbidopa. Medications that directly
stimulate dopamine receptors include bromocriptine (Parlodel) and
ropinirole (Requip). Selegiline (Eldepryl) inhibits monoamine oxidase
B (MAOB), an enzyme involved in Parkinson's, thereby increasing
both dopamine and serotonin. Entacapone (Comtan) and tolcapone
(Tasmar) increase dopamine by inhibiting an enzyme involved in the
condition. Stalevo contains carbidopa, levodopa, and entacapone.

A


when making some quick and inexpensive
changes to your home. You can make a dramatic
change in the appearance of an interior simply
by adding some paint to one or all of the walls in
a room. Paint an entire wall before taking a
break so the painted portions won't lose their
wet edges. Then stand back, scan the wall, and
cover any missed spots or smears. Whether you
paint in sections from top to bottom or from side
to side across the room is up to you. If you're
right-handed, start in the room's left-hand

Live Oak Church of God to

celebrate 90th Homecoming


The Live Oak Church of God will
celebrate their 90th Homecoming on
Sunday, Nov. 22. Homecoming is a
special time set aside each year to reflect
on our heritage and past blessings with
thanksgiving and to eagerly look forward
with purpose and obedience to follow the
leading of the Lord. It is a beautiful time
of reconnecting with church friends and
family from the past and acquainting and
embracing new friendships.
The special guests for Homecoming this
year will be former staff member Rev.
Nathan Wachob and the local gospel
singing group Delivered. Rev. Wachob has
pastored four churches since leaving Live
Oak. He and his wife Mary and sons Zach
and Alex live in Tallahassee. He will be
preaching the Homecoming message. The
local singing group Delivered will be in
concert that morning also. 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 offers hope and inspiration as
they share the message of God and His
love for all people.
Services will begin at 10:30 a.m.
Following the morning service, we will
join together for an old fashioned
Homecoming dinner-on-the-grounds in
the Family Life Center.
The Live Oak Church of God has been a
vital part of Suwannee County since 1919.
Pastor Fred Watson and congregation
would like to extend an invitation to our
many friends, families and members to
come and join us for Homecoming. The
church is located at 9828 US Hwy 129 S.

FARM-CITY Week
Nov. 20 26 with Suwannee County Farm Bureau






-MU NRO


















Randall Dasher, president of the Suwannee County Farm Bureau, is shown with
his greenhouse full of chives.


What does Farm-City Week mean to

Suwannee County?
Suwannee County Farm Bureau is pleased to recognize Nov.
20- 26 as Farm-City Week.
On the seven days leading to and including Thanksgiving Day,
Farm-City Week is celebrated nationwide. What are we celebrat-
ing? The American economy perseveres thanks to the interdepend-
ence of farms and cities.
FARM IY' Neither the farm nor the city can exist in isolation. Instead, the
interdependence of the two creates jobs, products, markets and
relationships that make our economy and nation strong. Join with
us in recognizing Suwannee County agricultural producers and allied industries and the
contributions they make to the economy.
As we celebrate Thanksgiving, let's remember the vital farm-city part-
nerships that have done so much to improve the quality of our lives.
Rural and urban communities working together have made the
most of our rich agricultural resources, and have made sig- .j
nificant contributions to our health and well-being and
to the strength of our nation's economy. For this, we .
Food For Thought... can give thanks. Suwannee

Quick-witted


folks
By Jim Holmes
I have always admired folks who are quick
witted; people whose actions or words leave
you just standing there with your mouth wide
open, with little recourse but to walk away.
A now-retired newspaper editor who is a
friend of mine is one of those folks. Ted is an
amicable sort. On the other hand, the fellow
who walked into the newsroom that day un-
happy about a particular story was both
irate and profane. Ted worked long and hard
to calm him down, until he became concerned
the guy might become violent. And so Ted
took a different approach. Going nose to nose
with the bloke, Ted told him it was time "They
stepped outside and settled this like men."
The angry fellow who was considerably
larger than Ted was quick to agree. And so
the two walked to the nearby exit, where Ted
- always the gentleman -politely held the
door open for his protagonist. Once the man
stepped outside, Ted slammed the door, locked
it and called the police. I'll tell you, I'd have
given a bright, shiny quarter to have seen that
fool's face standing outside that glass door.
If I compared Ted to a car, he'd be a Ferrari.
On the other hand, I'm more like a John Deere
tractor: sound and steady, but slow. I'm capa-
ble of coming up with cleaver actions or quips
... two weeks after they are needed.
Unfortunately for me, I head a family of the
quick-witted folks. My wife and our two chil-
dren both fall into that category. I wouldn't
have survived the kids' teen years if were not
for one expression. In fact, I suspect God cre-
ated "Because I'm your father, that's why!"
- just for folks like me. It's not clever nor
memorable, but it ends debates, as long as you
are still paying their bills.
I can assure you, however, "Because I'm
your husband, that's why," will not work, un-
less you are willing to eventually see your sup-
per seasoned with ground glass.
Now, I'm being honest here. In our nearly
40 years together, my wife has almost always
had the last word in our discussions. Most of
her quick-witted rebuttals have left me with a
chuckle or a smile. But when tempers were
flaring, I found long, solitary walks to be the
best method of defusing the situation. The an-
grier I am, the longer the walk. I thought I'd
make it to Cleveland a couple of times.
In all our years of marriage, I can remember
only a single incident where my rebuttal left
my wife speechless.
I am a fellow who, once I like something, I
really like it. Much to my wife's consterna-
tion, I have been known to eat the same exact
thing for lunch for months at a time. It drives
her crazy.
We were at the grocery store when she at-
tempted to convince me to select a different
flavor of ice cream other than my regular cher-
ry-vanilla. Back and forth we went, as we
stood in the store aisle. Finally, in frustration
she snapped, "Jim, you never want to try any-
thing different!"
"Yep," I responded, "I'm that way with my
women, too!" There was a long pause, after
which she put my cherry-vanilla in the buggy.
I think she even gave me a bigger serving that
night.

To the Editor:

This letter is in response to the rant and rave writer who
was concerned about football vs. reading and writing, and
who seems to think that the two are mutually exclusive. My
observation is that Superintendent Scarborough is deter-
mined to excel in both academics and athletics. You read
more about athletics, especially football because that's the
face of a school and even the community, and there's noth-
ing quite like small town high school football under the
lights on Friday night. Your concern that only a few people
benefit from football simply isn't so. Not only do the foot-
ball players participate on Friday night, so do the band
members, cheerleaders, ROTC members, and you will see a
lot of students attending the game. I'm also sure if you
spoke to the instructors in any of the previously mentioned
programs, they would tell you that they would love to have
more students participate.
As far as the cost, football creates enough revenue
through ticket sales and boosters, that not only is it self-sup-
porting, but it also helps fund other athletic program. If you
want to measure the success of the football program by aca-
demic standards, then you will be pleased to know that
Suwannee High School currently has 6 football players at-
tending college and playing football. Three alumni are play-
ing in the NFL, with another one on the way next year, and
Branford has a young man headed to play college football.
We have several football player alumni who have graduated
from college and are now successful businessmen in Live
Oak. Do not discount the fact that some students simply
would not remain in school if they didn't participate in
sports, and in some cases the only real positive contact that
some students have with a male role model is their coach. I
think we get our money's worth from football.
Now let's talk about the reading side. I'm married to a
teacher, and I can assure you that teachers want to teach
students. In fact, most put their hearts and soul into it. The
reality is, that there are a lot of things that teachers can't
control. First, they can't hire and fire students. They take
them all. Second, have you ever seen all the paperwork
dumped on teachers by mindless bureaucrats (to cover their
butts)? I've never met a teacher that wouldn't rather be
planning and teaching students, but there are only so many
hour sin a day, and if the paperwork isn't done, then the
teacher is in big trouble. Third, teachers can't control...
abused children, neglect, dysfunctional families,
alcohol/drug babies, hyperactive kids who haven't been giv-
en their medication, TMH, SLD, ADHD, hunger, homeless
students, or apathetic parents and students who don't value
education, but then feel somehow that their child is entitled
to a world class education without putting forth any effort
on the students or parent's part. Fourth, teachers don't teach
laziness, crime, sex, pregnancy, disruption, the lack of so-
cial skills, violence, or alcohol/drug abuse to students, but
they have to deal with it.
As for academics, Suwannee High School has students at-
tending or who have graduated from colleges all over the
country, including West Point, Naval Academy at Annapo-
lis, the Air Force Academy, Harvard, Florida State Universi-
ty, University of Florida, and many more. One student made
a perfect score on the SAT test, and one student is one of 20
people selected nationwide to work on the restoration of the
USS Constitution. Must be some teaching going on some-
where.
I suggest that if you would like to contribute to the im-
provement of education in Suwannee County, then volun-
teer at the school of your choice, or join one of the many
fine civic clubs that tutor and mentor students, such as Ki-
wanis, Lions, Altrusa, or Rotary.
Finally, while I believe that football boosts school and
community spirit, I suggest that you personally attend a

To the Editor:

I learned that there was a submission last week to Rant
and Rave strongly criticizing efforts to preserve and expand
a historic property in Live Oak. Unfortunately, some peo-
ple thought this was referring to Grace Manor Community
Center and Restaurant. It wasn't! Even so, this is a great
time to clear up some of the common misconceptions peo-
ple have about Grace Manor's function, funding and future.
Function: Grace Manor is known best in town for its
restaurant, located in the historic Dowling House on Duval
Street, but it has had a much larger purpose. It offers his-
torical education and entertainment to the community. It
provides mentoring to youth and adults who have had
scrapes with the legal system. It provides a place where
residents can connect with a piece of their history just by
coming to eat lunch!
Funding: Grace Manor does not receive any funding
from the city or county. The only public money it has ever
received was one matching historic preservation grant from
the State of Florida in 2001. Everything else was funded
privately. When customers dine at Grace Manor, they are
helping fund the services it provides and the upkeep of the
historical building.
Future: Yes, Grace Manor is up for sale. My move out-
of-state and declining health of two board members is forc-
ing the change, but we are excited about the possibilities
that come with that change. We are committed to finding a
buyer that will keep the restaurant open to the public, and
even expand its tourism appeal. We are so pleased to meet
the interesting people who visit our facility from all over
the country, and we know that just the right person or group
is out there to take it to the next level!
If you haven't visited Grace Manor yet, please come by
and ask for a free tour! We are proud of our building, the
history of the area, and all the staff and volunteers that
make Grace Manor work. Remember, this building was
condemned and dilapidated when our volunteers stepped in,
but we thought it was important to preserve this piece of
history for generations to come. I hope you will choose to
be a part of YOUR community center's future!

Is BPranford out of code sponsors turkey dinner


when it comes to fire?


County fire marshal

says yes; Town Council

to address issue

By Stephenie Li i *..*I...,
'./, / I' 1, i, /1 '.*". '- ';_;'.',liT, 7t '. ,., ,.

Much of Branford is out of compliance with the
state fire code, Suwannee County Fire Marshal Paul
Haas told the town council at a meeting last week.
"It is pretty serious," said Haas. "I walk into this
room today and I see about ten fire code violations."
Haas asked town council to consider modernizing
Branford's interlocal agreement with the county in or-
der to begin making improvements and bring Branford
up to code. The current agreement has not been updat-
ed in nearly twenty years. Haas called the current situ-
ation a "great liability" and referenced out-of-state
fires resulting in numerous fatalities. Through the cur-
rent interlocal agreement, the Suwannee County fire


By Ana Smith
Do you stop once in a while and
realize how much fun and energiz-
ing an impromptu activity can be?
Have you and your spouse, or you
and a friend, made a quick deci-
sion to do something together, and
enjoyed the event so much that
you look forward to doing it again
soon?
Last Friday my friend Gail sug-
gested we get together for break-
fast the next morning. We didn't
go far ... Nell's in Branford ... and
it didn't cost much at all for a
good breakfast. The most "appe-
tizing" part was sharing the time,
and the breakfast, with a good
friend. We didn't discuss anything
special, didn't make any future


marshal and fire department does not have the power
to intervene.
"Loss of life is what I'm here to prevent. It is what
this code is here to prevent," said Haas. "One day,
God forbid, we are going to have a loss of life here."
Fire insurance is also an issue when discussing fire
code violations, said Haas. If the town of Branford is
not up to code, business owners will have to pay high-
er insurance rates.
"We cannot use the small town excuse as a reason
not to make our buildings safe," said Haas during last
week's council meeting at Branford's Town Hall. As a
municipality, Branford is bound by the National Fire
Code. Currently, the majority of downtown is not up
to code, according to Haas.
Town Council President Shirley Clark said she was
not aware of this issue. The council was anxious to fix
the problems. "We want to get going and make sure
our businesses and our people are safe," said Clark.
The council formed a fire committee and agreed to
hold a meeting to discuss the fire code violations. The
council members also discussed holding a workshop
with county officials to further discuss the issue.


plans, just sat and talked, remi-
nisced about family and friends
who are no longer with us but
with whom we had shared similar
breakfasts in the past, and ex-
changed greetings with other peo-
ple we knew who were also hav-
ing breakfast there.
That night another good friend
stopped by and we shared an im-
promptu supper as we made plans
for a booth we hope to have at the
Branford Christmas event and dis-
cussed our involvement in rescu-

It was when I thought back
over that day that I was once
again reminded of the wonderful
people who have come and gone
in my life, the truly good friends


and caring family that have been
such an important part of my life,
and how it's those simple things
and shared moments that mean so
much. Heading into the Thanks-
giving season, it reinforced my
feelings of how thankful I am for
those I hold dear and the place
they have in my heart, as well as
those precious memories of all
those loved ones who used to be
here to share these moments and
make those memories with me.
It was then that I decided this
year to get a little more involved
in this wonderful community in
which I live. There was an article,
written by a man I've known

O'Brien and our neighbors


'Bits & Pieces' from



south Suwannee County


Continued From Page 7A

through our shared volun-
teer work at the local ani-
mal shelter, who is now
very active with a program
to make Thanksgiving,
and especially Christmas,
a happy time for under-
privileged families and
children here in our part of
south Suwannee County.
Roger Burnside's plea in
this newspaper for "Toys
For Kids" is one you need
to read, folks, especially if
you live here in the south
portion of Suwannee
County. Together with
Karen from the Branford
Health Department, as
well as all those people
who help them with this
project every year, every
effort is made to make
sure families in tough situ-
ations are able to enjoy the
holidays like the rest of
our children, and with the
economy as tight as it is,
prices of everything rising
by the week (or so it
seems, at least to me),
please take the time to
read his article, squeeze a
little more room in your
heart ... and your wallet ...
to help them reach their
goal of a happy holiday
for every child in our com-
munity who may not get
that opportunity otherwise.
If you want more infor-
mation, or if you know of
a child down here in our
part of the county who has
a need, or if you would
like to make a donation of


children's dl.ili:ii.. food,
or money, call Karen at
the Branford Health De-
partment at 386-935-1133
or Roger at 386-935-3343.
No donation is too small,
and you will reap a huge
blessing knowing you are
helping those less fortu-
nate than you.
This Saturday is the
monthly Brotherhood
breakfast at O'Brien Bap-
tist Church. A hearty
breakfast is served from 8
a.m., followed by a meet-
ing. You don't have to be a
member of OBC; just be a
member of the community
who is interested in being
part of a fellowship of
men who love and serve
Our Lord and who are in-
terested in the betterment
of our community and our
fellow man. Come meet
your neighbors; bring your
sons, your fathers, your
male relatives and your
male neighbors. You'll be
glad you did! For more in-
formation you can call the
church office at 935-1503.
There will not be a mid-
week service at OBC on
the Wednesday before
Thanksgiving. Instead
we'll share our prayer ser-
vice on Tuesday, the 24th,
at 6 p.m., at what has be-
come known as the annual
"Pastor's Pie Service."
Hope to see you there.
And if you are part of
the O'Brien community
and either have no place to
go for Thanksgiving, or
will be alone this year, or


just don't want to cook,
why not think about com-
ing to O'Brien Baptist
Church for your Thanks-
giving dinner? It's sure to
be a time of sharing and
fellowship, plenty of good
food, and plenty of folks
you'll enjoy meeting if you
haven't met us already.
Call the church for details
or look for information
flyers posted in local store
windows.
From "Humorous Quo-
tations":
"Knowledge is what you
get from reading the fine
print in a contract: experi-
ence is what you get from
not reading it."
"A filing cabinet is a
place where you can lose
things systematically."
"The years between fifty
and seventy are the hard-
est; you are always being
asked to do something,
and yet you're not decrepit
enough to turn them
down."
"Oh sure, you can catch
more flies with honey than
with vinegar, but who
wants flies?"
"It never freezes in
Florida, at least not until
you buy an orange grove."
"The only thing worse
than a flooded basement is
a flooded attic."
Stop to think about all
the blessings you enjoy
every day. If you can't
count at least one every
day, then you need to
make some changes. God
bless!

A team approach to senior adult well-being


By Dr Nasseer Masoodi, Medical
Director, Advent Christian Village
Growing old isn't easy. Caring for
an elderly family member with
chronic health issues can be a chal-
lenge too. Taking your loved one
from one specialist to another can be
a drain on your time, your pocket-
book and your emotions. In the end,
your loved one, whether a parent or
a spouse, may not be receiving the
best care possible. And you may be
paying more than you need. Here's a
possible solution. Consider a team-
based approach.
While the practice of geriatric
medicine includes preventive medi-
cine and the diagnosis and treatment


of reversible diseases, it is very
much dominated by the challenges of
caring for patients with chronic ill-
ness. Studies like the one published
in 2002 by the Institute of Medicine,
Health Professions Education: A
Bridge to Quality, found the best
way to treat the elderly was through
the team approach. Detailed analysis
proves that interdisciplinary geriatric
teams can provide care that is better
suited to the needs of seniors than
care from traditional providers. Inter-
disciplinary teams generally include
physicians, nurse practitioners/physi-
cian assistants, and social workers,
while nutritionists, speech, physical
and occupational therapists, psychol-
ogists, or other specialists participate
on a case-by-case basis. Not only is
team care beneficial, but it is cost-ef-
fective as well.
Two decades ago, Advent Christ-
ian Village established a team-based
approach through our Resident Care
Assessment (RCA) team. We have
been using this coordinated approach
to care ever since. The team meets
weekly and is comprised of medical
staff, administrators, pastors, social
service, and other support services
staff, working cooperatively to man-
age the needs of a resident. The goal
is to keep residents as independent as
possible by maximizing their func-


tionality, well-being and happiness.
The delivery of quality, cost-effec-
tive medical services is critical. Ac-
complishing the team approach re-
quires continuous broad education
for every team member. A physician
certified in geriatric medicine leads
this effort; however, management,
expertise, and commitment are re-
quired from all other disciplines.
What differentiates ACV's RCA
team from traditional models is the
participation of administrators, home
care specialists, housing managers,
pastoral staff and housekeeping per-
sonnel. The RCA team is designed to
treat the whole person rather than
simply their specific medical condi-
tion(s). We are concerned about an
individuals living situation, indepen-
dent functioning, nutritional status
and support system, and the team fo-
cuses on promoting wellness and
quality of life.
The goal of Resident Care Assess-
ment is to assist the resident and his
or her family in receiving care that
respects the autonomy and dignity of
the senior adult and address any
safety issues. The team accomplishes
this through the following process:
Assessing physical, environmental,
cognitive, spiritual and functional

MY STORY: Tib Henderson


"I never did any real exercise until
I retired. In fact, except for swim-
ming, I avoided exercise as much as
possible. I was one of those kids al-
ways chosen last for teams. After I re-
tired in 1992, I joined a walk and
stretch type class at the local YMCA
where I lived. My main reason for
joining the class was for weight loss,
not health. However, soon I noticed
an increase in energy level too.
When I moved to ACV in 1997, I
was thrilled that Copeland Communi-
ty Center included a pool. I immedi-
ately joined the aquatics class and
then a walking class. I have continued
to participate ever since.


In September 2008, my doctor dis-
covered a blockage in an artery that
feeds my heart. I was very surprised,
since I had only had recognizable
symptoms while hiking in the hills of
Michigan several weeks earlier.
I underwent a stent procedure that
corrected the problem. My doctor
told me that it had taken years for the
blockage to develop, and that my ex-
ercise program (even though I started
later in life) had saved me from a
heart attack and resulting heart dam-
age.
I am so thankful that I live in a
place where these classes are offered,
that they are based on good research


and that they are fun. If they were not,
I probably would have chosen not to
participate and my quality of life
would likely be much less than it is
today."

Home safety visits to

that RCA can coordinate
care across different sites.
This may include care in
the patient's home, prima-

crucial since the elderly
often have complex chron-
ic conditions.
Monitoring and adjust-

extremely important.
Teams routinely monitor
medication use to elimi-

gral part of the informal

What Are the Benefits
of Resident Care Assess-
ment Services?
One Stop Shopping:
Service Coordinators
know the available ser-
vices, their cost and quali-
ty. This saves family mem-
bers who live at a distance
time and money.
Personalized Services:
Service Coordinators ad-
dress the individual needs
of the resident and their
family by communicating
with everyone involved.
Accessibility: Medical
staff and Service Coordi-
nators are available to resi-
dents on daily basis; they
are accustomed to re-
sponding to crisis or emer-


agency situations. Continu-
ity of Care- Service Coor-
dinators can represent the
resident and their needs to
health care and service
providers within and out-
side the Village in a con-
sistent and reliable man-
ner, saving time and pre-
venting miscommunica-
tion.
Quality and Cost Con-
trol: The RCA helps pre-
vent inappropriate hospital
care and overuse of ser-
vices. The team matches
services to the residents
needs and thereby contains
costs. Through ongoing
resident monitoring, Ser-
vice Coordinators help
prevent crises. A team ap-
proach helps to deliver
high quality care in a safe


and effective way.
That is how we provide
care at Advent Christian
Village. If you have a fam-
ily member who is facing
these issues elsewhere,
you may want to look into
what kind of team-based
approach is available
there.

Gardening Tips from the Live Oak Garden Club




'Willow, willow,




weep for me'


By Lucille Bobiney Heinrich
There are many types of willow trees
but there is no willow more popular or
easily identified by its exceptional shape
and loveliness as the Babylonian, or
"weeping" species (Salix babylonica)
which originated in Asia. Weeping
Willows with their arched limbs and
delicate leaves are magnificent, and can be
grown successfully in our growing zone.
Like all trees, they have limitations and
problems, but planted in the right area
such as along lakes, rivers, wetlands, or
retention ponds. These lovely trees can be
blc.iil.ikiij-. and they can add value to
your property.
The weeping willow is not a tree to be
planted in small city lots; in its search for
water, it will invade septic tanks, sewer
and storm lines and drain fields. It is fast
growing, maintenance free, and while it
likes water, can withstand mild drought.
Weeping Willows have widespread roots
that help prevent soil erosion, provide
shade, and are very adaptable and will
thrive in most soil types except for those
that are very fast draining and very dry.
The tree can be somewhat messy in that it
drops twigs and leaves and its brittle
branches break off in storms. These trees


are easy to propagate. Just break off a
small branch, put in water and soon the
roots will appear below the water line.
These trees can grow to a height of 40 feet
and have a life span of 35-40 years.
Poets write about this tree. It is found in
many paintings and in literature
throughout the world as symbols of grief,
death, and sadness. During his exile on the
Isle of St. Helena, Napoleon took comfort
under the shade of a Weeping Willow, and
upon his death, was buried under this tree.
In William Shakespeare's Hamlet, the
character Ophelia climbed a willow tree
growing over a river and drowned when
the branch to which she was clinging
broke.
There are over 400 species of willows,
and willow wood is used to make many
items including baskets, boxes, furniture,
flutes, whistles, broom handles, and fish
traps. Willow trees produce a milky sap
that contains salicylic acid, which was
found to sooth headaches and reduce fever
but the acid caused too much stomach
upset. In 1897, Felix Hoffman created a
synthetic version, which was gentle on the
stomach, and his company, Bayer,
produced his invention under the name of
aspirin.

In an effort to reduce the impact of the seasonal
flu and connected illness, enrolled/eligible
veterans may obtain a seasonal flu vaccination
through Jan. 29 at the Lake City VA Medical
Center.
This is an especially challenging influenza sea-
son this year. Many people suffer severe conse-
quences from the flu. It is very important for
every veteran to get his or her flu shot. The flu
shot is the only measure of protection from the in-
fluenza virus.

Water woes won't go away


Continued From Page 1A

"We do not have the po-
litical clout to stop it if
someone wants to take our
water," said Webster. Still,
North Florida citizens are
going to try. Before the fo-
rum was over a group ac-
tion meeting had already
been set up for Tuesday
morning at the Ft. White
community center.
"The era of cheap water
is gone," said Webster.
"The state is going to have
to pay more. You cannot
take water without harm-
ing resources."
Webster sited desalina-
tion and better conserva-
tion practices as alterna-
tive solutions to Tampa's
water shortage.
As for our own dwin-
dling aquifer, the Suwan-


nee River Water Manage-
ment District along with
the St. Johns River Water
Management District are
working towards a plan
that will eventually put
Florida's aquifers "back
on track." Already, SR-
WMD has been in the
process of a district wide
water supply assessment.
"We have determined there
will not be sufficient water
to meet future needs in the
Upper Santa Fe Basin," said
Webster. "This is the red
flag, this is the warning."
The new plan will mean a
new permitting strategy for
municipalities, as well as
stricter conservation mea-
sures for homeowners and
businesses. The increasing
population in northeastern
Florida and advancing in-
dustry and other economic


development has led to a
rapid increase in water de-
mand.
In a previous Democrat
article, SRWMD Executive
Director David Still stated
that North Florida must im-
prove the design and man-
agement of water resource
technologies, find alterna-
tive water supplies, and
adopt stricter water conser-
vation technologies. "Hope-
fully once implemented
things will get back on


track," he said.
However, with Tampa's
eye on the Floridian aquifer,
the future of the Suwannee
River Basin's water supply
remains hazy, expressed wa-
ter management officials.

pear in Friday's Democrat,

Hendry announces

run for Congress
Staff
Tallahassee resident
Eddie Hendry has for-
mally announced his
candidacy for the 2nd
Congressional District
seat in the U.S. House of
Representatives.
Hendry is seeking the
seat currently held by
Allen Boyd.
Hendry emphasized
Eddie Hendry what he called "irre-
sponsible and out of
control federal spending, a current tax system that is
in need of a complete overhaul, and a growing and
complete disregard for the founding principles and
values found in the U.S. Constitution" as key factors
fueling his candidacy.

veniles were allegedly
banging on windows and
doors in the area around
Bryson Street, wiii) to
find somebody to beat up,"
said Davis.
Davis said LOPD re-
ceived two calls about the
suspects sometime after 11
a.m. He said when patrol
cars arrived in the area the
four ran into a home on
Bryson Street without the


owner's permission. Jenk-
ins then allegedly ran north
from the home toward Du-
val Street in the area of Lee
Avenue. Davis said Jenkins
was apprehended moments
later in the area of Jackson
Avenue.
Cruz and the two juve-
niles were apprehended at
the home on Bryson, ac-
cording to Davis. They
were charged with bur-
glary. Jenkins was addi-
tionally charged with re-
sisting arrest with violence.

In a second incident,
about 45 minutes later, of-
ficers responded to a report
of a home invasion rob-
bery at 417 Home Avenue
SW. Three male and two
female victims told offi-
cers that three suspects
kicked open the back door
to the residence, and once
inside, displayed handguns
before gaining control of
the victims. The victims
reported several items
stolen that included cell
phones, more than $300 in


cash, and wallets belong-
ing to the victims, accord-
ing to police. The suspects,
who were described as
three black males in their
early 20s, all wearing
black hoodies and blue
jeans (or dark pants), fled
on foot, officers reported.
It was not clear whether
the two incidents were re-
lated. Police ask that any-
one with information re-
garding the two events
contact LOPD at 386-362-
7463 or call Suwannee
County Crime Stoppers at
386-208-8477.


Unclaimed tax refund checks

claimed, failed delivery tax
refund checks, according
to recent IRS documents.
The IRS has reported
over $15 million in unde-
liverable tax refund checks
in the state, $29,784 in
Suwannee County alone.
"The checks were re-
turned to the IRS by the
U.S. Postal Service due to
mailing address errors,"
according to IRS Florida
spokesperson Mike
Dobzinski.
"Refund checks go
astray for reasons that vary
with each taxpayer,"
Dobzinski said. "Many
times it's because a life
change, such as a marriage
or divorce, causes an ad-
dress change. If a taxpayer
moves and does not notify
the IRS or the U.S. Postal
Service, a check sent to
their last known address is
returned to the IRS."
Nationally, 107,831 re-
funds totaling $123.5 mil-
lion were returned to the
IRS this year. The average
undelivered check totaled
$1,148, compared to $990
last year, the IRS reported.
To avoid check delivery
failure, taxpayers are asked
to ensure their correct ad-
dress by filing the IRS
change of address Form
8822. Forms are available

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: What are some legitimate steps
toward whiter teeth?
A: You can't sign on to your computer
these days without seeing a set of
yellowed choppers next to a set of
gleaming white ones and the revelation
of a wonder remedy to make your teeth
whiter. There's nothing wrong with
wanting as white and sparkling a smile
as possible. The first step to take, if that's
your priority, is to talk with your dentist
about treatments and products that are
available.
Whitening toothpastes bearing the
American Dental Association seal of
acceptance are good for keeping teeth
white. The ADA also approves of
bleaching, which can be effective in
many but not all cases. If you have
bonding or tooth-colored fillings placed in
your front teeth, those materials will not
whiten and may stand out. If bleaching is
appropriate, your dentist can do it for you
in the office or you can use an ADA-
approved home bleaching kit. In most
cases, teeth that have yellowed will
respond well to bleaching. Teeth that
have gone brownish may not noticeably
improve and teeth that are gray may not
change at all. Veneers or bonding may be
the only way to change their appearance.
Talk with your dentist about ways to
enhance your smile.

Guilty verdict

in fatal crash


Continued From Page 1A

He displayed a photo of
Votano's shattered face ly-
ing in the dirt just after the
accident that took his life
on CR 137. Then, a second
photo showed Votano's
lifeless body, lying out-
stretched.
"He ended up like this in
the Jacksonville morgue ...
broken, battered, bruised
up and dead," Jacobsen
impressed to the jurors.
Defense attorney John
Hendrick tried a different
approach.
"This case is a tragedy.
No one is happy," he said.
"You've heard a lot of
math and equations in this
trial, but there is only one
simple equation that mat-
ters in the end: Reasonable
doubt = not guilty," he said
as he wrote the formula on
a whiteboard.
He reiterated the crux of
his defense of Davis.
"We all go off the side
of the road sometimes, for
many reasons, but does
that necessarily mean
we're driving reckless?"
he asked. "Sometimes it's
careless, and there's a big
difference between care-
less and reckless driving."
"Careless," he said, "is
unintentional," but reck-
less means "there's an in-
tent to harm. Yes, Mr.
Davis might have acted
with a bit of carelessness,
but does that give you
enough reason to go and
find him guilty."
During the trial a major
area of dissension arose
from the FHP officers' re-
port, which stated that
there were 181 feet of
shadow marks on the high-
way at the crash scene.
The marks were used to
determine the actual brak-
ing point and trajectory of
the impact zone.
Prosecution witnesses
Sgt. Bruce Simmons, Cpl..
Jesse Stalnaker and Sgt.
Kevin Pace all testified
that the information in the
report was correct to the
best of their knowledge
from the data they collect-
ed at the scene dealing in
their area of expertise and


with accident reconstruc-
tion.
Attorney Hendrick
called to the stand witness
Allen Stokes, a forensic
consultant in accident re-
construction, who coun-
tered parts of the FHP offi-
cers' testimony.
"Generally shadow
marks only go for about 10
feet," Stokes said.
"They're cold tread marks
left before tires heat up on
the pavement and leaves
skid marks ... 181 feet of
shadow marks is impossi-
ble," he argued.
The matter was never
clearly resolved, although
that didn't hinder jurors
from reaching their ver-
dict.
"If the verdict is 'not
guilty' there is no justice
in this county," said Ruby
Votano.
The Votano family was
relieved at the jury's deci-
sion Thursday.
"I feel good about it,"
said Frank Votano,
Joshua's father. "In some
ways justice has been
served and in others I
don't believe it has."
The family said there
were a number of impor-
tant factors left out of the
case.
"I do feel sorry for
(Donald's) parents be-
cause I know what they're
going through. They'll
lose him for a few years,
but I've lost my son for
life."
The Davis family was
noticeably shaken after the
verdict was read.
Davis' mother, Debra
Davis, wept on the arm of
the person standing at her
side. At the start of trial
Thursday, she said she
hoped her son, who was
handling the situation "as
well as could be expected"
walked away not guilty.
That was not the case,
however.
Donald Davis will likely
serve a minimum of 10
years in prison, a maxi-
mum of 15, which is the
usual sentence carried in
these type cases, Jacobsen
said. Sentencing is set for
11 a.m. on Dec. 3.

Suwannee falls 45-0


Oaken Bucket will
stay put in Lake City

By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

The Bulldogs were shut out by the
Columbia County Tigers 45-0 Friday
night. The Oaken Bucket will stay in
Lake City for another year.
Columbia put 13 points on the board in
the first half. The Tigers' first score came


on a one-yard drive with a little over four
minutes to go in the first quarter. The
second touchdown was on a two-yard run
early in the second. Suwannee tried
putting three on the board in the
beginning of the third but Austin
O'Connor's field goal attempt was
blocked.
Columbia scored at will in the second
half, the final touchdown coming on a
29-yard pass play.
The Bulldogs end the season 4-6, 2-3
in District 2-2A. The 4A Tigers improve
to 7-2, 4-0 in District 4-4A.

The Branford Buccaneers

played with equal grit Friday
night as they battled it out for
"The Helmet." Both teams
suffered multiple injuries but
stood strong regardless, until
the Hornets came up short in
the final minutes of the
game.

Buccaneers came out on top
with a 32-20 win over the
Hornets.
S"I have a lot of respect for
coach Pearson and his

would get their best effort, so
our challenge was to fight
back," said Coach Bill Wiles
of the Buccaneers. "We did.
We battled the whole game."
With the Hornet defense
getting off to a rocky start
Friday night, the Bucs scored
quickly in the first quarter on

Thomson. The Hornets

touchdown pass from Nick

all this is a team that had
an undefeated regular
season. The only 18-1
team that owned the
rights to 19-0. The Pats,
the guys who beat Joe
Gibbs without mercy, laid
50 points on the Titans in
a half, spied on their
opponents. They were
certainly capable of
holding a 17-point lead in
the fourth quarter. Wrong!
With a little more than
two minutes, on his own
28-yard line, with 4th and
2 yards to go, Coach
Belichick rolled the dice.
It came up snake eyes,
you lose. Peyton Manning
was able to find the
endzone from 29 yards
away and the Colts
remained undefeated.
Why, Coach?
Sometimes people are
ruined by success. Coach
Belichick has a 78
percent success rate on
fourth down. The Colts
were not the Bucs or
Lions, but throw caution
to the wind. That's why
they get paid the big
bucks. Most other
coaches might be seeking
employment today, but
not Coach Belichick. His
was a calculated risk
because he had won a
Super Bowl or two. Any
other coach would be
classified an idiot. Had
coach been successful
another legend would
have grown into mythical
proportions and I would
have nothing to write. A
legend was born but it
will be more about
goblins and trolls then
princesses and knights.
So even the best,
whether they be named
Bobby, Stevie, Vince, or
Belichick make mistakes.
We should be thankful
these men are not heart
surgeons or worst yet
accountants.

Bucs stop Hornets


Continued From Page 1B

Bracewell to Brooks
Laminack with less than
two minutes left in the first.
The Bucs came back early
in the second quarter with a
five-yard run for a
touchdown by Kyle
Certain. The kick was
blocked. The Hornets picked
up a touchdown by Antwan
Brown with less than a
minute left in the first half.
However, Kyle Certain's
pass to Josh Kirby in the
third quarter quickly broke
the halftime 13-13 tie, while
Perry sat on the sidelines
with a sprained ankle.
Brown then made the
crowd go wild with an 82-
yard kickoff return for a
score. The Hornets failed to
produce after they got the
ball back on a missed 42-
yard field goal attempt by
Carlos Negrete.
Branford responded with
a touchdown by Certain
against a Hornet defense
that had previously given up
an average of less than two
touchdowns per game. The
Hornets intercepted the ball
just before Lafayette
sophomore lineman Tyler
Brown went down after a
hit. The crowd was quiet as
Brown lay immobilized for
20 minutes. Brown was
alert as he was loaded into
an ambulance while his
team prayed in a huddle on
the field.
After Tyler Brown's
injury, an on-target pass
from Bracewell to Antwan
Brown, gained 20-plus
yards. The Hornets' chances
to score looked hopeful.
However, after several
incomplete passes, the
Hornets failed to score.
Perry sealed the deal with
a huge 70-yard sprint for a
touchdown.
"I didn't feel like I did
what I was capable of," said
Nick Bracewell. "We
played good, although I
don't think we came in
ready to play. We were
thinking about playoffs, we
didn't focus on Branford."
Lafayette Coach Joey
Pearson gave the Bucs credit
for the win.

game and deserved to win,"
said Pearson. "We had some
opportunities to win the
game, but we could not get
them off the field on third
downs and didn't score when
we got down in the red
zone."
"In a close game it comes
down to a few plays and we
just didn't get it done. We
now have to rebound and get
ready for a very good
Jefferson County team in the
first round of the playoffs,"


said Pearson.
Wiles was proud of his
team's hard-fought win
against what he called a
"well coached and classy
outfit."
"Our offense has been
good all year and we
expected to move the ball,"
he said. "We had three or
four big plays at critical
times that turned the
momentum in our favor. We
ran the ball well enough that
our play action had a chance
and we made three big plays
with it. But in the end it was
our defense that made
enough plays to win the
game."

'The Raid on



the Suwannee'

Civil War history comes to life
this weekend at Spirit of the Suwannee

StaffZ
During the Civil War
years of the 1860s, Florida
was a major participant in ."
many ways. Not only did
the state field troops for
almost every major conflict
of the war, but was also the
most productive part of the ...
South in the closing years
of the war.
Floridians produced farm
goods, cattle and more. The
Union fully recognized
this, leading to a series of
skirmishes all over Florida.
One of the goals was to
control shipping, and more
importantly, rail lines. This
lead to the famous Battle of
Olustee. Less well known
were the numerous
"probes" all along the
coastal accessible area of
the state.
There are earthworks
reminding us of the _
encampments and hastily ,&
erected fortification at the .t ... ,4L ..
nearby Suwannee River
State Park. A "spur line"
that served a river landing
with mule drawn cargo cars
still borders the Spirit of -."

Toys for Kids+
'We really need your help'
By Roger L. Burnside
Toys for Kids+ really needs your help.
Christmas is a time of joy and celebration;
unfortunately there are many children in
the Branford area that will be missing the
joy of receiving Christmas presents. We
are in need of toys, clothes and in some
cases, food for these children.
With the economy the way it is right
now we are experiencing more requests
than in past years. No donation is too
small, if you can just provide one toy, a
box of food, a winter coat or shoes it will
be greatly appreciated.
Anyone interested in helping us with
this project can take their donations to the
Branford Health Department. You may
also call Karen at the Branford Health
Department at 386-935-1133 or Roger
Burnside at 386-935-3343. Should you
know of a child in need you may also call
these numbers.
Over the years the folks in the Branford
area have brought a lot of joy to the area's
children and their families, for this we
thank each and every one of you. The
smiles and appreciation the children
express each year make this project a
blessing to all.

Community

Thanksgiving Service
Nov. 23
The annual Community Thanksgiving
Service will be held on Monday, Novem-
ber 23, at the Ebenezer AME Church at 7
p.m. The church is located at 411 Parshley
Street with parking across the church at
the Paul Langford football stadium.
Pastor Wayne Godsmark, Christ Central
Ministry, will be the speaker, and music
will be led by a praise team composed of
members from congregations in our com-
munity. The Ebenezer Choir will serve as
the foundation of a Community Choir that
will provide special music during the
Thanksgiving Service. If you are interest-
ed in being part of the choir, practice will
be at 7 p.m. Tuesday evening, November
17, at Ebenezer AME Church.
Pastors from seven other congregations
will be participating in the Thanksgiving
service. The Suwannee County Ministers
Alliance and the Suwannee County Pas-
tor's Prayer Fellowship, sponsor this an-
nual opportunity for our community to
thank God for all of his blessings.
There will be a canned food offering for
Love Inc. as well as a cash offering.
Americans have been thanking God for
His blessings dating back to Virginia in
1607 and New England in 1620. Our first
president, George Washington, proclaimed
our first National Thanksgiving in 1789.
Following this 1789 day of Thanksgiving,
the various states rather than the President
generally proclaim observances. In 1863,
President Abraham Lincoln issued a
proclamation making the last Thursday of
November a National Day of Thanksgiv-
ing. In 1941, Congress established the
fourth Thursday of November as an annu-
al day of Thanksgiving.
The pastors of our community invited
everyone to join us in this Thanksgiving
worship. For additional information, con-
tact Pastor Ray Kelley at 209-1614 or
liveoakchristian@windstream.net.

Did you know?
According to the Glaucoma Research Foundation (GRF), glaucoma can result
in blindness if left untreated. What's more, of those who do receive proper
treatment, 10 percent still experience loss of vision. Because there is no cure for
glaucoma, any vision lost cannot be regained. That's disconcerting when
considering that, according to Prevent Blindness America, nearly half of the 4
million people in the U.S. who have glaucoma are not aware they have it. And
while it's common to assume glaucoma only effects the elderly, it's not
impossible for babies to be born with glaucoma. Approximately one out of every
10,000 babies born in the United States is born with glaucoma. African
Americans are especially susceptible to glaucoma, as glaucoma is the leading
cause of blindness among African Americans. African Americans ages 45 to 65
are 14 to 17 times more likely to go blind from glaucoma than Caucasians with
glaucoma in the same age group.

American Indian
vendors from all over the
U.S. will be in attendance,
along with musical
entertainment, dancers in
their native regalia, and
Native American foods
including Buffalo burgers,
venison chili, fry bread
and much more.
This is a family-oriented
event and the public is
welcomed.
Coordinator Julie Norris
says some people think the
festival is only for Native
people, but she stresses
that everyone is welcome
to join in the fun. Come
for the day or come for the
weekend.
Pow Wows were a way
for the American Indians
to socialize and the festival
has become a good way to
give the public an
understanding of Native
American culture.
This is a way to keep our
traditions alive and the
Pow Wow has been a very
important part of that
tradition for many years. A
gathering to see old friends
and make new ones.
It is not only fun, but
educational.
Please come and join us
Friday through Sunday.


There will be plenty to entertain the children and adults
alike.

By Sally Q. Smith
Office for Member Services
Advent Christian Village

The 22nd annual 'Live!
At Dowling Park' Artist
Series at Advent Christian
Village is pleased to host
duo pianists, Nielson and
Young Friday at 7 p.m. in
the Village Church.
After more than three
decades of musical
collaboration that continues
to take them around the
world, duo-pianists
Stephen Nielson and Ovid
Young are veterans of more
than 3,500 concerts in a
fascinating array of venues.
The duo has been hosted
for concerts at many
hundreds of churches and
universities, appearing by
themselves or with
symphony orchestras.
Nielson and Young are
Steinway artists and have
been on the artistic staff of
the International Church
Music Festival since 1985.
Individually and jointly,
they are widely-published
composers of music for
solo and multiple
keyboards, choir, and
orchestra. Their extensive
discography includes many
recordings from the
classical repertoire as well
as from the ever-expanding
output of their signature
hymn-tune arrangements,
many of which are for two
pianos and orchestra.
Mr. Nielson, his wife,
and their two daughters


Stephen Nielson and Ovid Young, Duo Pianists. -Photo: Submitted


reside in Dallas, TX.
Teaching is an enthusiastic
pursuit for Mr. Nielson,
and he maintains a limited
schedule for working with
gifted young people and
adults in the North Texas
area. He also accepts a few
invitations annually to
conduct master classes in
performance, practicing,
and repertoire.
Mr. Young and his wife,
and their two sons reside in
Bourbonnais, IL, where
Mr. Young is Artist-in-


Residence in the College
of Arts & Sciences at
Olivet Nazarene
University, a private
Christian university 50
minutes south of
downtown Chicago.
While both Nielson and
Young are pianists and
composers, Mr. Young is

renowned organist.

New hospital's therapeutic design

supports healing, green practices


By Kim Rose
Heading to the hospital? These days,
the newest member of your medical team
just might be the building itself and it's
likely to play a bigger role in your
healing than you might think.
New trends in hospital design are
helping health-care systems to better
choreograph care and provide a soothing
yet energy-efficient environment.
Consider the Shands Cancer Hospital
at the University of Florida, which
opened earlier this month. The new
500,000-square-foot, $388-million
medical tower is an extension of the
Shands at UF academic medical center
on its new south campus. The tower will
feature 192 private beds and will house
the Shands Critical Care Center for
emergency and trauma services. Medical
teams will serve a variety of inpatients,
including those receiving diagnostic and
therapeutic oin clh -, care.
"Through academic medicine, we offer
patients novel diagnostic and treatment
options by expert physicians, researchers
and teachers, and skilled and
compassionate nurses and clinical
teams," said Timothy Goldfarb, Shands
HealthCare CEO. "Now we have added a
truly innovative, healing setting that
incorporates industry best practices and
therapeutic design to enhance our


patient's overall health-care experience.
This is the hospital of tomorrow."
Shands and Gainesville Regional
Utilities partnered to establish the GRU
South Energy Center to provide 100
percent of the hospital's energy needs.
The onsite power plant will ensure
uninterrupted power, independent of the
city's energy grid, regardless of a
prolonged outage elsewhere in the
community. It will efficiently convert
fuel into electricity and provide 46
percent savings compared with
traditional fossil fuel-burning
generations. Officials estimate this will
save 27 million kilowatts per year,
enough to power about 3,000 homes.
The commitment to use
environmentally sustainable construction
methods to build the hospital has earned
Shands HealthCare the silver Leadership
in Energy and Environmental Design
designation per the U.S. Green Building
Council rating system.
"We used insulated windows that are
treated to reduce solar glare and white
rooftops designed to reflect heat," said
Brad Pollitt, Shands HealthCare vice
president for facilities. "The facility's
air-conditioning heat wheels help to
recover lost energy and irrigation and
drainage systems use reclaimed water.
We provide showers for employees who

during the wildfires in
2007 and windstorms of
2008 and 2009. River 6
will also be supporting
Refuge staff in the
management of the
Okefenokee, assisting in
controlled bums that are
vital to the Refuge's
ecosystem and working to
monitor and protect the
habitat of the endangered
Red-Cockaded
Woodpecker. The group
arrived at the Refuge on
Oct. 30 and will remain in

conservation; public
safety; education; and
other unmet human needs.

bike to work and special parking for
hybrid cars."
Pollitt says that Shands is now being
considered for gold-level LEED
certification and will be one of a few
academic medical centers nationwide to
achieve this rating.
"Opening the Shands Cancer Hospital
at UF marks a milestone for us," said Dr.
David S. Guzick, UF senior vice
president for health affairs and president
of the UF&Shands Health System. "It
will enable us to meet the growing needs
of cancer patients, advance our ability to
care for emergency and critical care
patients and ensure our long-term
commitment to meeting the region's
health-care needs."
In designing the building, hospital
facilities teams worked with architects
whose expertise is health-care
environments. Nursing and medical staff
provided input to incorporate features
such as nurse stations that improve sight
lines to patients and monitoring systems
and details that give patients control of
their environment, allowing them to
adjust lighting and window shades with
the click of a remote. There is abundant
natural light on each floor and hallway
lights are wall-mounted or recessed so
patients aren't subjected to blinding glare
as they are wheeled from place to place.
"Every planning and design decision
we made as a team was centered on
patient comfort and ease for hospital
staff in providing safe and healing care,"
said Laura Stillman, principal-in-
charge/project director at Flad
Architects.
"The new building is light-filled,
welcoming and easily navigable for
patients, families and staff and we
believe it offers hope to those who will
experience it," she added. In 2009, more
than 100,000 cancer cases will be
diagnosed in Florida, second only to
California in the nation's cancer cases. In
north Florida alone, at least 4,500 new
cases are diagnosed annually. One in
seven adults treated at Shands at UF has
a cancer-related condition.
The new tower also includes the
Shands Critical Care Center at UF, which
combines an emergency department and
Level I trauma center. The emergency
room has 62 treatment areas and
provides clinical teams the capacity to
treat 100,000 patients a year. The trauma
center has four large treatment rooms
and is strategically located directly

beneath the rooftop helipad that can hold
the weight of two helicopters at once -
making care a brief elevator ride away
when every moment counts.
In addition, in mass-casualty situations
the emergency department capacity can
be quickly doubled. The private exam
rooms have breakaway doors, are 18
inches wider than code requirements and
can hold side-by-side beds.
The hospital also includes 12 high-
tech operating rooms designed to
accommodate anticipated evolutions in
robotics and 3-D imaging; surgical
intensive and intermediate care units;
and a bone marrow transplant unit,
outpatient clinic and stem cell lab. A
full-spectrum radiology department
features the "crown jewel" of imaging,
the Aquilion ONE 320-detector row CT
scanner. The $2.5-million diagnostic
tool, the second Shands HealthCare has
acquired, helps physicians diagnose
cancer, and it can detect stroke and heart
disease in minutes, replacing dozens of
other tests that typically take hours or
even days. Shands was the first in
Florida and one of only a handful in the
nation to acquire this tcc,'li, ,iitl\,.
Ultimately, hospital officials worked
hard to create a setting that underscores
their commitment to hope and healing,
from the Garden of Hope, which
provides a place for quiet reflection, to
the Sanctuaries of Silence and Peace,
areas for meditation and prayer.
"As our clinical teams focus on each
patient's medical and physical condition,
the beautifully designed building creates
a healing environment and helps us
support their emotional well-being,"
Goldfarb said.
Some studies indicate that design
improvements lead to improved patient
outcomes, although more research needs
to be done, according to Robert Cassidy,
editor-in-chief of Building
Design+Construction magazine, based in
Oak Brook, Ill.
"There's great value in saving energy,
improving day-lighting and providing
views of nature and other amenities,
such as healing gardens and family
centered patient rooms and facilities,"
Cassidy said. "One of the ways the
patients and families evaluate a health-
care setting is how bright and cozy it is.
Whether those elements have a benefit in
reduced length of stay or other clinical
benefits is not scientifically proven, but
our gut tells us they do."

Bake a gift from the heart


The possibilities for a special gift from
your kitchen are endless a great pound
cake, a loaf of banana bread, special
cinnamon rolls or even a homemade
pecan pie. "Anything you bake from a
treasured family recipe will have special
meaning as a gift to a friend," said the
Martha White(r) baking expert Linda
Carman. "However, practically speaking,
cookies are one of the best choices for
gift giving."
Cookies are a universal favorite. They
can be packed in a beautiful tin or other
festive container, are easy to make, and
many varieties will maintain their quality
for several days without refrigeration. A
wide variety of cookies will look
beautiful on a platter, but cookies retain
their flavor and characteristic textures
better if stored separately.
Rather than go for a decadent cookie,
consider reviving a simpler childhood
favorite this year. Fun-to-make
Thumbprints are a perfect example.
Adorned with jewel-toned jam centers,
they will make a beautiful gift and bring
back cherished holiday memories.
If you feel the need to embellish them a


little more for the holidays, consider
different variations which feature the
addition of nuts to the cookie dough and
topped with complementary jam flavors -
like almond cookies with cherry jam.

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups Martha White(r) All-Purpose

1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup Smucker's Jam or Preserves,
such as strawberry, raspberry or apricot

1. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl,
with electric mixer at medium speed,

vanilla. Beat well. Whisk flour and
baking powder in large bowl. Beat into

Is it dressing or stuffing?

No matter what you call it, dressing or
stuffing is a revered holiday tradition all
over the country. "What you call it and
whether it's made with bread or
combread is probably dictated by family
tradition and where you grew up," said
the Martha White(r) baking expert Linda
Carman. "Southerners generally call the
famous accompaniment dressing, not
stuffing, and prefer to make it with
cornbread and bake it in a pan alongside
the turkey."
Historically, this tradition makes
perfect sense because many of the deepest
traditions are born by folks making do
with what's on hand. In the rural South,
that meant leftover cornbread softened
with a few leftover biscuits, seasoned
with celery, onions, sage and broth. Why
Southerners prefer to bake it in a pan
instead of in the bird remains a mystery,

but it may have something to do with the
buttery crisp texture of the baked
combread dressing.
Sausage Combread Dressing with
Apples and Pecans embraces traditional


combread dressing, but combines the
wonderfully complementary additions of
sausage, apples and pecans. The
combread for this recipe is made with a
quick and easy cornbread mix, which will
be delicious in any of your cornbread
dressing recipes.


Sausage Cornbread Dressing with Apples and Pecans

Crisco Original No-Stick Cooking Spray

2 (6 oz.) pkg. Martha White(r) Cotton Country(r) Combread Mix or
Buttermilk Cornbread Mix, prepared according to package
directions
2 cups crumbled biscuits or toasted bread cubes
1/2 lb. pork sausage
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 1/2 cups chopped, unpeeled Granny Smith apples
3/4 cup coarsely chopped toasted pecans*
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 1/2 teaspoon dried sage leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can chicken broth

1. Heat oven to 375 F. Spray a shallow 2 1/2-quart baking dish or pan
with no-stick cooking spray. Coarsely crumble prepared combread.
Place in large bowl. Add crumbled biscuits.
2. Cook sausage, celery and onions in large skillet over medium-high
heat until sausage is browned and vegetables are tender, stirring
occasionally.
3. Add sausage mixture and all remaining ingredients to cornbread and
biscuits. Mix well, stirring gently so cornbread does not crumble
completely. Spoon into prepared baking dish.
4. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown.

TIP: *To toast pecans: Place pecans in dry nonstick skillet; cook over
medium heat, shaking pan until nuts are lightly browned. Or place
pecans in a baking pan. Bake at 350 E for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring
every 5 minutes, until lightly browned.
