rum, sponsored by state Rep. Debbie Boyd,
was held at Branford Elementary School.
A panel of experts spoke out Monday night
in opposition to a decision allowing the fed-
eral Environmental Protection Agency to set
surface water pollution standards for Florida
the first time any state's standards have
been overridden in this manner.
A U.S. district judge had earlier that day
approved the agreement between five envi-
ronmental groups and the EPA to give the fed-
eral agency final say in setting state standards
for surface water pollution.
"The EPA needs to allow Florida to stand
up, take control of this process and do it
right," said Chuck Aller, director of natural

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

This is an especially challenging in-

the only measure of protection from the
influenza virus.

First Federal Bank of Florida
recently donated $5,000 to the
Suwannee High School Band
Boosters through First Federal's
Community Rewards Program.
First Federal customers who
were enrolled in the Community
Rewards Program used their
debit cards to build up
contributions by First Federal.
The money will be used to help
offset the cost of purchasing new
uniforms. It had been over 10
years since the band bought new
uniforms.
The SHS Band, led by new
band director Stacey
Gindlesperger, is having an
outstanding year. They continue
to win many accolades and most
recently won Straight Superiors
at the Florida Bandmasters
Association Music Assessments
in Tallahassee. The band is
headed to Florida Marching


Band Coalition State Semi-Finals
on Nov. 21.
"I am so proud of all they have
accomplished this year and they
look and feel confident in their
new uniforms," said
Gindlesperger.
The Community Rewards
Program is a way for First
Federal and the community to
partner together to support local
community organizations. Every
time a First Federal customer,
who is enrolled in the
Community Rewards Program,
uses their debit card to make a
signature-based transaction, First
Federal will donate money to the
partnering organization.
Suwannee High Band Boosters
was the inaugural organization to
partner with First Federal on this
program. The SHS Band
Boosters asked to participate to
help offset the cost of the new
uniforms.


GAMETIME



Guitar Hero 5


The best of the crop


By Cody Webb
By now, everyone
knows that Guitar Hero
tends to release games on
a monthly basis versus the
yearly basis we see from
other series. With each
"new" game, it seems like
Activision and Neversoft
only made small
improvements, mostly just
adding in new character
models, stages and songs.
Finally they've released
the next main game in the
series: Guitar Hero 5, and
they improved enough
things to make this the
definite buy of this year's
GH haul.
Let's get the basic stuff
out of the way. GH5 is
available on the Xbox
360, PS3, Wii and PS2.
New Guitar Hero means
new instruments which
have some improvements
over the old models, but
don't necessarily need to
be bought. If your current
kit works, you're set, no
upgrade needed. This
game is rated T for Teen;
and any of your old
downloaded tracks will
work with this one.


The biggest and most
obvious upgrade from
previous Guitar Hero's
would be GH5's
completely revamped
style. The character
models have ditched the
over-exaggerated look
that was in the other
games and have adopted a
more realistic and toned-
down look. It's definitely
an improvement and the
upgraded animations
really help to bring your
rockers to life.
Speaking of your
rockers, creating your
very own rocker persona
is now more customizable
than ever. You can change
just about everything
about your avatar, leading
to some interesting and
unique musicians. I've
even seen a ninja rock out
a guitar solo, which goes
to show just how much
GH5 offers in terms of
appearances and outfits.
Best of all, your character
shares the realistic look
that the prefab characters

have!
Gameplay has
undergone a few changes
when it comes to
bandplay and game
modes. When playing
with friends, each player
gets their own "Star
Power" meter instead of
sharing it as in the
previous entries. There
are now "Band
Moments," which task the
players to perform a
section of the song
perfectly in order to win
rewards like a score
multiplier or amusing
visual effects. Reviving
fallen band members has
changed as well, getting
rid of the "three strikes
you're out" mechanic and
instead using one where
the still-alive bandmates
must perform well to
revive their friend.
Failing this, the song will
end and everyone will
lose, so try to keep on
your toes, rockers!
This leads us to the
second biggest

improvement in GH5:
Party Play. Once players
start this mode, it will
randomly play any
available songs until you
turn the mode off.
Anyone can play any
instrument, as in: you can
have four people on
guitars, two drummers, a
bassist and guitarist, and
so on. You can even have
no one playing at all! The
songs will continue to
play even if no one is
playing, or even if you're
paused.
Players can drop in and
out of this mode at will,
change difficulty and
instruments on the fly,
and even just leave it be
to have a jukebox of
sorts. It's a virtual concert
that plays even if you
don't. Activision may
have invented the perfect
game mode for parties, so
expect this mode to be
adopted into future music
games and to possibly
become a mainstay of the
rhythm game genre.


Also available in GH5
are the expected modes,
like Career and
Quickplay, along with
their competitive modes.
Quickplay, as in World
Tour, has all of the songs
unlocked from the start,
which allows gamers to
jump right into the
diverse songlist that is in
this game. Career has
changed a little bit,
keeping the Career
structure of Metallica
(where you unlock more
venues by doing good in
the ones before), but has
added in Challenges in
each song. These can be
anything from holding a


"Star Power" streak for a
set amount of time or
from hitting a certain
streak of notes.
It's impressive to see
how Activision and
Neversoft improved the
fifth entry, and I hope
they put this much work
into their next game. I'll
give this game an A, and
two devil horns straight
up. If you're unsure
which GH game to buy
this year, make it this one,
it's certainly the best of
the crop.

graduate of Suwannee
High School, lives in Live

Members of the
National Honor Society at
Suwannee High School
decided they wanted to
tackle a project that would
"give back" to the
community.
Neena Brown, their
advisor, organized the kids
to create "survival kits"
for distribution in the
county. Oftentimes the
sheriffs office encounters
people in need, whether
they be homeless, stranded
and passing through our
county or just going
through rough times.
These survival kits
contain non-perishable
pre-packaged food items
and drinks, such a:
crackers, pop-top cans of
tuna, snacks, fruit, bottled
water and juice. Personal
hygiene items such as
shampoo, toothpaste and
toothbrushes, body soap,
razors and tissue were also
included.


The survival kits are
intended to help someone
get through a rough spot
and hopefully lend a
helping hand in a tough
time and will be given out
at the discretion of the
road deputies as they see
the need.
The sheriffs office
would like to thank all the
kids involved in the
making of these kits and a
special thank you to their
advisor Neena Brown.

EXTENSION UPDATE

What is







A1C?


By Cathy Rogersbut don't stop reading
Family and Consumer
Sciences Agent
UF/IFAS Suwannee County
Extension

November is Diabetes
Month but don't stop reading
if you don't have diabetes.
There are an estimated 20.8 If
million people in the U.S.
who have diabetes and about
one third of them are
undiagnosed. You may be at
risk for it now and as you age you will be more at risk.
Knowing what A1C means is important since it is a
reliable indicator of blood sugar control.
A1C, pronounced A-one-C, and often referred to as
hemoglobin A1C or HbAlc, measures your average blood
glucose level over the past two to three months. It
indicates the "big picture" of blood glucose control. It is
sometimes used to diagnose type 2 diabetes although at
this time the American Diabetes Association (ADA) has


not yet made an official statement on using A1C as a
diagnostic tool. Currently, most people are diagnosed via
fasting glucose tests or oral glucose tolerance tests. But
these tests offer only a snapshot of glucose levels on a
particular day, a number that can be swayed by exercise,
illness, or even the temperature of the room in which the
blood sample is housed. The benefit of the A1C test is
that it can be taken at any time of day and is not thrown
off by events of the day. That's why an international panel
of experts in diabetes is recommending a switch to the
A1C test for diagnosing diabetes. The A1C test is
normally done in the office of the healthcare provider. It
involves a small sample of blood, usually from the finger.
Also available are home test kits for A1C. Most of these
are mailed to a lab that mails or e-mails results within a
few days.
The other blood glucose test, the one done at home on a
daily basis, called the self-monitoring of blood glucose
(SMBG) test, or the finger-prick, is done to check the
levels of blood glucose at that moment. This is useful for
diabetics in order to help maintain daily control and to
help them to determine which foods, combinations of
foods, activities, and/or medications affect their blood
sugar levels. For diabetics, both the A1C and the SMBG
tests are vitally important. Together they give a complete
picture of the level of blood glucose control.
The only thing that has kept the reliable A1C test from
becoming a standard diagnostic tool is that the major
diabetes groups have not yet agreed on what result
constitutes a diagnosis. For most people with diabetes, the
A1C goal is less than 7. An A1C higher than 7 means
having a greater chance of eye disease, heart disease,
kidney disease and nerve damage, all chronic
complications of diabetes. The results of the test range
from 4 to 25 and correspond to average blood glucose
levels. They indicate a percentage of total hemoglobin
that has glucose molecules attached to it and are often
referred to in percentages. Normal levels are 4.2 to 6.2


percent.
There are some people who have a variant form of
hemoglobin. These people typically have African,
Mediterranean, or Southeast Asian heritage. For these
people, results of A1C tests could produce false readings.
ADA recommends at least two A1C tests a year for
diabetic patients who are meeting treatment goals and
have stable blood glucose. For patients who don't,
quarterly A1C tests are appropriate. In most cases,
Medicare should cover A1C tests every three months for
patients with diabetes. But getting an A1C test as little as
a day before the three-month mark is deemed unnecessary

Chili showdown at Guardian ad Litem


Submitted
To benefit the Florida State Employees'
Charitable Campaign, the local Guardian
ad Litem program hosted its inaugural
chili cook-off contest Friday. The
challenge brought out some of the most

support exceeded expectations and the


I


hot sauce and secret recipes were
plentiful!
Although it was a close race, the
judges declared Glenda Williams "The
undisputed of 2009 GAL Chili
Champion." Ms. Williams used the
Publix "Apron's" Ground Beef Chili
Recipe.
Barry Baker, Pauline Corbett, Paul


Crawford, Sandra Haas, Sharon Jordan,
Buddy Williams and Glenda Williams
deserve special recognition for their
delicious entries.
We are grateful for to all the judges
who purchased chili and donated their
time to judge the contest and to Publix
Supermarkets for donating the delicious
cake. Proceeds from this event will go to


the local United Way which helps support

What we're

thankful for
What are we thankful for this holiday
season at the Suwannee D. m.. -,., Plen-
ty. Here's a rundown of just a few of this
things for which we're grateful.
Our nation.
America invented democracy as we
know it. Other folks had the idea first, but
it took our fierce ingenuity to make it
work on a practical level.
Our nation's been a work in progress
right from the start, and while we may not
yet embody the ideals for which we strive,
we're working like hell to get there.
God bless America.
Our county.
We live in a mobile society, and folks
are more or less free to reside where they
wish. We choose Suwannee, for reasons
we think are obvious.
Our staff.
Democrat employees give their all, and
then some, week in and week out. Thanks
for your hustle, hard work and dedication.
Our customers.
By which we mean our readers, both
online and in print, as well as our adver-
tisers. Without you we wouldn't be here,
and that says it all.

Not to get people started again about trying to get Suwannee
County to go wet, even though I would like to see it. But, I was
on SW 5th Street and next to the Barber Shop, they are work-
ing on an old building and when they took the first layer of
shingles off, there it said "wines and liquor" on the roof. It
must have been the good ol' days of Suwannee County. Thank
you.
Hi, I would like to comment on the veterinarian hospital that
was rejected by the city council. In the paper it states that the
traffic is the main issue. Now I can understand these people not
wanting the traffic in there but don't they realize there are three
bars on Helvenston Street? And that is going to generate
enough traffic as it is, and I don't see where a veterinarian hos-
pital is going to create that much traffic on that road, in fact it
would generate jobs, which we all know Live Oak needs. So
these people need to get their heads out of their rear ends, if
you will, and let this come onto this street. Like I said, you've
got drunks driving down that road 24/7, and you don't think
that's gonna be a hazard to their children? A veterinarian hos-
pital would be exactly what that road needs. Thank you very
much. Have a great day.
It's not that our community doesn't support gays, but most
are in agreement with God's view on it! The Bible clearly
states: ROMANS 1:22-32, especially verses 26-27! We are
taught to hate the sin, but love the sinner. And we ALL sin! But
know we are forgiven for it by a merciful, loving God! God

City Hall will be closed
Thursday and Friday
Nov. 26 and 27 for the
Thanksgiving holiday.


Both Wednesday and Thursday's
garbage collection will take place on
Wednesday. If you are scheduled for
a Thursday pickup, put your garbage
out on Wednesday.
The City of Live Oak has several
new downtown businesses as well as BY SONN'1
others in the works. Go by and give
them a look. These businesses have already begun decorating
their storefronts for the holiday and they look very nice.
Hopefully others will follow. I encourage you to do as much
of your holiday shopping as possible locally. Not only does
this help create and maintain jobs, it adds to the sales tax dol-
lars we receive from the state. We have been sprucing up the
downtown in preparation for the Live Oak Lights and Christ-
mas on the Square. The Live Oak Partnership and the newly
formed downtown merchants association are planning a com-
munity event in Millennium and Veteran's Park on Nov. 28.
Two city Christmas trees will be lighted, one in each park.
Santa himself will make an appearance, so make sure you
bring the kids. Many of the downtown businesses will deco-
rate for the event and be open for your shopping convenience.
Refreshments are also planned. Suwannee County's "Smoke
Free Florida" organization will be serving hot chocolate and
cookies. Music and other types of entertainment are on the
agenda. Come on down and get into the holiday spirit.
The City of Live Oak in conjunction with the Live Oak
Partnership is retaining the services of Mr. Jim Beeler, a grad-
uate student at the University of Florida, to do a comprehen-


rave

says it is unnatural, and its mentioned in other scripture also.
It would be nice to never hear these words again: "Stop act-
ing like it's a choice and start being a little more accepting of
the fact that humans can love other humans. That's something
beautiful, not something that should be forbidden". It is a
choice! What choice you make is yours alone! My under-
standing is, it is FORBIDDEN! And we ALL WILL STAND
BEFORE GOD IN JUDGMENT, FOR IT IS TRULY HIS UL-
TIMATE JUDGMENT WE SHOULD STRIVE TO BE
PLEASING TO HIM! I'm not judging anyone now. I love
everyone and will be praying for All. The love I have is called
AGAPE! Is the love that we should truly have for everyone,
not a chosen few! donita martin
A rave about a member of the Sound of Suwannee Band. If
you have been to a game you would have seen a young lady
twirling flags on the field and playing a snare drum in the
stands. Erin Carroll is talented and puts the band first and does
it with charm and eagerness. When there was a need a few
weeks ago in the drum line, she stepped up and played won-
derfully and with enthusiasm. Her parents must be proud. She
is an accet to our community and will be missed after she
graduates. Thanks Erin for always having a great attitude and
that big smile.
In response to all these people writing in about people not
speaking English, I am tired of these people sticking up for
them. My husband and I work our butts off, we pay our taxes,
I pay for my child's lunch, I pay for my insurance when I go to
the doctors. I pay to get my license plate renewed, I pay to get
my drivers license renewed. And you've got all these illegals
over here who go get welfare, we are paying our tax dollars to
get them welfare, and pay for their kids to get free lunch, pay-
ing for their school, and for them to get food stamps, and then
they are driving around illegally, while I pay $75 for license
plates for my truck and $55 for license plates for my car and
they can just drive around illegally, I don't think so. If you do
not speak English and you are not from here, you need to go
back where you came from.

town could look like. I am excited


about the achievements beginning to
take place in our city. With the coop-
eration and help of the merchants,
our city can become a showplace and

getting your ideas about the downtown. He will be at the

The threat of rainy weather did not deter many citizens
from attending the Veterans Day activities at the Live Oak
Cemetery. Several hundred folks showed up to honor those
who have served our country in the military. Recent develop-

that serve in our armed forces. God bless and protect our war-

Staff from the city and county have been feverously work-

of everyone in our nation. The first census was taken in 1790
and is mandated by the Constitution to take place every ten
years. It is important that we count every person in our city,
county and the state. It is important because it can impact the
dollars we get from both state and federal agencies for vari-
ous program services such as schools, highways and roads

Food for Thought

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

My name is Tammy White, I am the owner of
Sprinkles Ice Cream & Hot Dog Shoppe in
Branford, Fla. I opened my business July 1, 2009. I
decided when I opened my shoppe I was going to
d e advertise in the Suwannee Democrat.
I was so surprised at the business I received from
placing the ad. What really surprised me was when
some of my hometown residents came in with a
copy of the ad and asked me to autograph it for
them. I really got a kick out of that. It kind of made
me feel like a celebrity. That is when I knew
advertising is a must when you own a business.
Since I have been open, I have placed several ads in
the newspaper. Recently I placed a whole page ad in
the Scene magazine that comes out in December.
I really appreciate the support they have given me
and I plan on advertising more in the future with the
'. ,-* Suwannee Democrat.

Are you expecting a baby?
Everyone asks, is it a boy or
a girl? Your answer could
be, "It doesn't matter as
long as it's healthy." That
really doesn't mean anything
to most people, unless
they've had a child who
wasn't born healthy. The
main cause of unhealthy or
sick babies is premature
birth. It is a birth that is at
least three weeks before a bab
date. It is also known as prete
(or less than 37 weeks full tc
about 40 weeks).
Prematurity is the leading c
death among newborn babies.

SUWANNEE COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER


'Loving p

By Ana Smith
If you have been paying attention at all the local
stores, Thanksgiving is almost here, and Christmas is
just around the comer. I love to check out the pet
aisles, and am constantly amazed at the items on the
shelves. The latest trip was especially eye opening as I
checked out the cute and funny costumes for our pets,
especially outfits for the coming holidays.
Do you have a toy or miniature dog? There are the
cutest dresses for your little female, or a Santa outfit
for your little male. How about deer antlers for the
biv.-..i pi Or a halo and little white wings for your
special "angel?" You can even find a "Grinch"
costume if you look in enough stores, or even an elf s
finery. A friend of mine told me of costumes in pet
stores and in some of the retail stores down in the
Orlando area; a Nutcracker soldier jacket and hat for
big dogs; elf boots for the little pets; and a Santa
jacket, black boots, and saddle-bag style tote to fit on
the back of really big dogs.
That all being said, I don't know how you readers
feel about dressing up your pets for the holidays, but in
this economy, I felt a little bit embarrassed to look at
the prices of these items, my thoughts being I could
think of so many better uses for my money. With that
thought in mind, I'd like to remind everyone that, in
these really scary financial times, please think about
using the money you might be thinking of spending on
these "luxury" pet items and donating it for some
animals that really need your help.
Instead of spending $10 to $25 dollars on a costume,
how about buying a couple of bags of dog or cat food,
or several cans of animal food, or a couple of bags of
cat litter, and giving that to a friend or neighbor who
has pets and is having a tough time keeping them fed
right now?
At the shelter we have experienced the sad business
of people, families, having to give up their pets
because they cannot afford those simple needs when
there is a family to feed. And here at the shelter, we
also feel the crunch to our budget as the cost of a bag
of dog food or cat litter rises with everything else.
Maybe, instead of that little outfit that may only be
worn a few times, you could take that money and
donate food to the shelter, or donate the price of that
item in the name of your pet!
The commercials asking you to send money to a
national animal organization are on more channels
now, but please don't forget you have local animal
rescue organizations and your local county shelter,
which also desperately need your financial help.
For an education in what happens to so many
animals that are dumped in the woods, dropped off in
neighborhoods hoping that they'll be taken in, or
thrown away in crates and boxes at the county dump,
come by our shelter and see what we see every day. If
you want to know what you can do to help save and
find new homes for our furry shelter residents, talk to
the folks who come in and volunteer to work with
these animals.
If you belong to a group that is looking for a project
to sponsor this holiday season, remember our shelter.
As the weather gets colder, the number and needs of
these animals increases. We rely on your compassion
and love of animals to help us take care of all those we
currently have "in house," and all those we will be
taking in every day.
We are located at 11150 144th Street, McAlpin, just


about 8 miles south of Live Oak off US 129 on the
same road at the big county landfill. Hours are 9 a.m.
to 2:30 p.m. on Monday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday
through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to about noon on
Saturday. If you plan to come out on Saturday, please
call first to make sure someone will be there. We have
only one animal control
We constantly have a variety of animals ready to be
adopted into a good, loving, "forever" home. Whether
it's a small lap dog or a big yard dog, a lovable kitten
as a house pet or a good mouser for you barn or stable,
we are sure to have one that will touch your heart and
that you will want to take home. Occasionally we also
have a pet that has a special need, and therefore needs
a special person or family to take it home and give it
the life it deserves. Think about us when you are
thinking about a new animal to add to your family.
We accept donations of both canned and dry cat
and/or dog food, including food for puppies and
kittens; cat litter, towels, blankets, cleaning supplies,
etc. are also greatly appreciated. And, of course, any
monetary contributions are tax deductible.
Remember God's little creatures who are not able to
speak up for themselves and tell you of their needs.
That is what we volunteers and staff of your local
Suwannee County animal shelter are doing, and we
hope you hear us.
And please, have your pet spayed or neutered. Help
us stop the cycle of unwanted litters that continue to
keep our county facility filled to overflowing. Our
goal is to one day be able to say 'Our job is done: no
homeless or unwanted pets in our county!" We need
your help and support to reach that goal. God bless!

H1N1 vaccine

will be offered

in Wellborn
By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

The H1N1 vaccine is coming to Wellborn. The in-
jectable vaccine will be available for the general pub-
lic at Wellborn Baptist Church on Monday, Nov. 30
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday, Dec. 1 from 9 a.m.
to 6 p.m. Additional clinics will be posted soon as more
vaccine is made available, according to the Suwannee
County Health Department. Infants younger than six
months of age are not allowed to receive the vaccine.
Therefore, health department officials ask that all care-
givers of infants be inoculated.
As previously reported, the majority of current flu
cases are considered H1N1, as opposed to seasonal flu.
The most infected age group has typically been people
below age 24. On July 29, after the national numbers
rose to an estimated
sixty thousand, the
state stopped count-
ing individual cases alto- /
gether. Over one hundred
deaths were attributed to H1N1 by
late September, according to national .
health records.

said Kelley.
Just in time for the holi-
day, the Thanksgiving wor-
ship service is sure to
please and lift the spirits of
all who attend.
Last year, the idea was
formed for an array of min-
istries those with ties to
the Suwannee County Pas-
tor's Prayer Fellowship and
the Suwannee County Min-
ister's Alliance to unite
and worship together as a
group.
"About half who partici-
pated were white and half
were black," Kelley said.
"It was a very, very well-
received idea."
Kelley said it was decid-
ed to make the worship ser-
vice an annual event, alter-
nating yearly from pre-
dominantly white to pre-
dominantly black places of
worship.
"We work together, and
see each other on the street,
so there shouldn't be a rea-
son why we can't gather
and worship together," he
said.

Hunsucker, who says he

business has been dis-

The site being consid-
ered is near the US 90/I1-10
interchange, the focus of
the so-called Catalyst Pro-
ject, a joint state/county
venture designed to bring
industry to economically
challenged areas. The
county recently approved
the purchase of a 100-acre
tract in the area for
$499,950.
Cason said securing the
property and getting a
commitment from the com-
pany would help open up
funding from the state.
"Now that we know this
company may come, this
opens up different corri-
dors for grant monies,"
said Cason.
The local project is part
of the state Rural Econom-
ic Development Catalyst
Project, designed to help
counties in regions of "crit-
ical economic concern" at-
tract industry. Each partici-
pating county helps fund a
local Catalyst Project, cre-
ating shovel-ready sites so


that businesses wishing to
relocate or expand there
can begin construction
right away. "Shovel-ready"
means utilities such as wa-
ter and sewer are already in
place.
The host county would
benefit the most by having
jobs in the area and rev-
enue coming in. Surround-
ing counties that helped
fund the project would
make money based on a
formula already in place.
Participating counties in
our region are Baker, Brad-
ford, Columbia, Dixie,
Gilchrist, Hamilton, Jeffer-
son, Lafayette, Levy,
Madison, Putnam, Taylor
and Union. The cost of the
local Catalyst Project is
currently estimated at $9
million, with the state ex-
pected to foot most of the
bill.
Diane Scholz, assistant
Rural Coordinator for Gov.
Charlie Crist, said the own-
er of the Tallahassee com-
pany is excited about the
prospect of moving here.

Scholz said the way it
looks now, the local Cata-
lyst Project could be com-
pleted within the next year.
"We're hoping within a
year we'll have the infra-
structure in place," said
Scholz.
"We have worked very,
very hard and diligently
over the last three years to
make this project happen,"
said Cason. "It's been long
and tedious, but if we can
get those jobs here for
Suwannee County, then it
makes it worth it."
Scholz warned county
commissioners at a meet-
ing Tuesday night that if
they hesitate, they could
lose the prospective com-
pany and the Catalyst site
itself.
"You have no other op-
tion for a Catalyst site,"
she said. "And if you don't
act, then the Catalyst site
could move to another
county."

except the victim's cellular
telephone, police say. They
took the phone and fled the
scene, according to reports.
Afterward the victim
gave physical descriptions
of the juveniles to
Lafayette County Deputy
Randy Henderson.
Through a combined ef-
fort between Deputy Hen-
derson and assisting
deputies, Robert Lawson
and Jacquelyn Tysall, a
possible location was nar-
rowed down to an apart-
ment at the Lafayette
Apartments. Beam and
Carter fled from a window
at the back of the apart-
ment as the deputies ap-
proached. They were
quickly apprehended.
Loston was also taken into
custody at the apartment a
short time later.
All three juveniles were
charged with home inva-
sion robbery and aggravat-
ed battery after the victim
reportedly identified them
in a photo lineup.

hard to keep all the gift
giving stuff and the real
meaning of Christmas in
the right perspective.
Thanksgiving is a calmer,
more relaxed holiday. A
time to recognize and give
thanks for the gracious
bounty we enjoy in our
country. A time to reflect
on what we have and a
time to think about what
others don't have. It's a
time for family, not Santa.
A time to think about the
loved ones we no longer
have. It's a time of reflec-
tion over the past year. A
time to think about our ac-
complishments and fail-
ures. It's a time to forgive
and heal. I look forward to
the delicious and abundant
meal Diane will prepare
for Thanksgiving. It is al-
ways great. Our cup run-
neth over. The Scriptures
tell us, "It is a good thing
to give thanks unto the
Lord" and to "magnify
Him with thanksgiving." I
hope everyone has a won-
derful Thanksgiving holi-
day. A lot of you will be
traveling. Be careful and
safe in all your activities.
Remember to wear your
seatbelts.
Several months ago, an
envelope was found on the
counter at the payment
desk at City Hall. When it
was opened there was a
$1,000 in cash in the enve-
lope. Staff started investi-
gating trying to determine
who the owner might be.
Possible ownership was
narrowed down to one per-
son. The money was
turned over to the Police
Department to notify the
potential owner of the
cash. It turned out that the
suspected owner was in
fact the person that had
left the money lying there.
Talk about being thankful.
I would have done double
back flips. I commend and
thank city staff for their
honesty and effort in re-
turning this money to the
rightful owner.

The city received a
check from Pilgrim's Pride
for $41,000 as partial pay-
ment for the amount owed
the city when bankruptcy
was declared last year. We
anticipate receiving the re-
mainder of the $72,000
owed the city at a later
date.
Bids are due this week
for the new water im-
provement project. This
project will include a new
well field, piping and a
high rise water storage
tank near the interstate on
129 North. This is an im-
portant project in that it
will provide the city and
surrounding area with pure
drinking water without
having to go through an
expensive treatment
process. It will also pro-
vide more water volume
and pressure which will
enable the city to provide
for future growth and eco-
nomic development. This
water project will open up
the 129 North corridor to
future business and indus-
trial growth.

ment of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices.
The EPA stepped in after a lawsuit by
environmentalists who argued the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection
hadn't complied with a 1998 EPA decision
that states set numerical limits for nutri-
ents in farm and urban runoff.
State officials and scientists from sever-
al state agencies and at least one environ-
mental group, Audubon of Florida, said
Monday night that they agree Florida
needs numeric standards to control excess
nitrogen and phosphorus levels (nutrient
pollution can lead to harmful algae blooms
and low-oxygen "dead zones," as well as
declines in wildlife) in bodies of water, but
wish to put science-based standards in
place themselves, while warning of the
dangers of being overly hasty in setting
those standards.
"The State of Florida recognizes that
there needs to be numeric limits," said
Jerry Brooks, director of environmental
assessments and restoration for DEP.
Florida has studied nutrient concentra-
tions and ecological change more than
any other state, he added. "However, we
are opposed to one that is not based on
science," said Executive Director of
Suwannee River Water Management
David Still. Still said the new standards
will not achieve the desired effect if they
are not based on science and unique to
different parts of the state "It is very diffi-
cult to set one standard for the whole
state," he said. "The standard will not be
achievable if it is not based on science and
unique to different districts and different
parts of the state."
Officials warned about 200 residents at
the forum that meeting the "conservative"
standards proposed by the EPA could cost
billions of dollars during already difficult
economic times.
Speakers at the forum also said EPA is
setting unreachable standards that require
duplication of efforts the state has already
made to study and clean Florida water-
ways. The state has spent $20 million on
these efforts to date.
The panel also called the agreement un-
fair, saying Florida is a national leader in
water cleanup.
Some were also concerned the agree-
ment could require cleanup of other states'
runoff as well, putting Florida farmers at a
competitive disadvantage.
"Florida's agriculture is going to get
slammed compared to other states," said
Aller.


owned by Robert Hancock Jr., was in the
process of being renovated. He said the
electricity had been off at the main panel
during the renovation. Kerosene lanterns
were used for lighting and a fireplace in
the master bedroom was used for heat.
"At this time we're not thinking it was
arson," said Croft. "I feel like it's going to


Still, the EPA says nutrients cleanup
cannot wait.
"Despite Florida's widely recognized ef-
forts, substantial water quality degradation
from nutrient over-enrichment remains a
significant challenge for the State," said
Assistant Administrator Benjamin H.
Grumbles in a letter to DEP Secretary
Michael Sole, "and one that is likely to
worsen with continued population growth
and environmental and land-use changes.
EPA has determined that numeric nutrient
water quality criteria are necessary."
The new agreement says EPA must pro-
pose rules by January 2010. Florida Farm
Bureau Director of Government and Com-
munity Affairs Staci Braswell calls the
deadline hasty and said they were set for
the wrong reasons. "These are litigation-
driven deadlines," she said. "Farmers,
families, state government ... everyone
will face economic hardship. Utility bills
as well as taxes will increase."
Monica Reimer, an attorney for the en-
vironmental groups, said opponents
haven't yet seen the EPA standards and
will have an opportunity to challenge them
once they're set, according to an Associat-
ed Press report.
In federal court Monday, the five groups
- the Florida Wildlife Federation, Sierra
Club, Conservancy of Southwest Florida,
Environmental Confederation of South-
west Florida and St. Johns Riverkeeper -
argued that nutrient pollution was respon-
sible for large outbreaks of algae in Flori-
da's inland and coastal waters.
David Guest, the environmentalists' at-
torney, showed U.S. District Judge Robert
Hinkle poster-sized photos of waterways
clogged with lime-green scum, according
to an Associated Press report.
Information posted on the Web site of
Save Our Suwannee indicates algae is four
feet thick in places on the river. The group
also attributes the problem to an excess of
nutrients in runoff.
Still, scientists and state officials don't
plan to back down. "This is the first scrim-
mage in what will be a very long battle,"
said Aller.
"DEP made proposals before the EPA
got involved," said Aller. "DEP's proposal
was more reasonable. The state has al-
ready invested time and money into this."
No matter whose standards are eventual-
ly adopted, Agricultural Engineer Mike
Halloway said the state is going to pay a
steep price for the cleanup.
"There is going to be a cost no matter if
DEP or EPA comes up with something,"
said Halloway. "The stakes are high. Bil-
lions of dollars could be lost."


be tied to the fire in the fireplace in the
master bedroom."
Croft said the home was constructed of
lighter wood, or high-resin pine, which fu-
eled the flames.
"Damage was considerable to the home.
Luckily the home was insured," said Croft.
LOFD responded to the fire with En-
gines 2, 5 and 7 as well as the ladder truck.
Twelve firefighters and four volunteers
battled the blaze. Croft said about 95,200
gallons of water were used.
Local historian Eric Musgrove said the
home could date back to the early 1900s,
maybe earlier.


"There has been a house on the same
spot since at least 1903 based on Sanborn
insurance maps, and it appears that it may
be the same one, just modified, especially
the front porch area, over the years," said
Musgrove.
Musgrove said a notable previous owner
was Samuel "Jack" Jackson White Jr., born
in Live Oak in 1909. White was the assis-
tant postmaster at the Live Oak post office
for some years. He also commanded the
Live Oak National Guard unit when it was
the First Battalion of the 124th Infantry in
1946, right after WWII. White died in
1992.

'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. Thompson
Custom Homes at 3554 256th St., O'Brien
has agreed to be an additional drop off site
for donations. 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.

The Suwannee High girls cross
country team made history Nov. 7
when they became the first team at
SHS to advance to the regional cross
country meet.
The District 1-2A cross country
meet was held at the Apalachee Re-
gional Park in Tallahassee. Thirteen
teams from Pensacola, Ft Walton,
Panama City, Tallahassee and other
towns in between were represented.
By finishing in the top six, Suwannee
qualified to move on to the next lev-
el; the 2A Region 1 meet at Sunnyhill
Farms in Tallahassee held Saturday.

ing in the top 30 followed
closely by Danyel Batton
(24:11). Amanda Mc-
Manaway, running with
extreme tendonitis, ran a
solid race with a time of
25:16. Suwannee's fifth
runner, with an outstand-
ing race and key in the
team's total point score,
was Amanda McClain
(26:00). Completing
Suwannee's top seven was
Krissy Sardina (27:59)
and Hanna Ragan
(28:41).


One of the goals set at
the beginning of the sea-
son was to be the first
SHS team to make it to
the regional cross country
meet and these girls made
it happen. Their hard work
and dedication paid off
and this achievement will
be something that they
will always remember,
they deserve all the credit.
Not once this season has
the team went into a race
100 percent healthy. Be-
tween the flu and injuries
we have had someone
missing or running hurt
every race. These obsta-


cles made it difficult for
consistent training and
racing. However the girls
pushed forward. In fact,
even at this District race
six of the girls raced with
nagging pain or soreness.
This speaks highly of their
determination to persevere
under adverse conditions.
They have definitely
earned the title as "Tough
Girls" this season. Never
count these girls out on
anything they attempt to
achieve in life.
We have a few girls on
the injured reserve list:
Mariana Rosalio, Logan


Bonds and Nan Metger
and they have also played
a part in building this
team. Graduate assistant
Arielle LaBrecque has
been a tremendous help by
running with the team to
help them train.
A note of special inter-
est is that Suwannee cross
country beat and elimi-
nated three teams from
my home town of Panama
City including my own
Alma Mater, Bay High
School, which was partic-
ular sweet and satisfying.
This is only the fourth
year of the Suwannee


cross country program
and it was the youngest
program represented at
the District 2A meet, so
making it to the regional
meet is quite an accom-
plishment. It's a fact that
another team in the Pan-
handle in class 3A quali-
fied for their first region-
al meet in school history
last weekend and their
cross country program
has been around for 30
years. I'm very proud of
the girls and how they
have represented the
community, the school
and themselves.

each year Cheek's has placed either first
or second in the team standing," coach
Tom Cheek said. "Our gymnasts in the
last few years have had outstanding re-
sults."
Cheek also added that being from a
small rural town, in a small rural gym


with a low ceiling and only 5,000
square feet of space and only a big
handful of gymnasts that a lot of
coaches from bigger cities doubt our
ability to produce high quality gym-
nasts.
"I've been in the gymnastics busi-
ness for over 35 years and of those
years Chris, Stormy and I have not


only produced great gymnasts but also
have outstanding high quality, intelli-
gent and beautiful gymnasts that have
gone out into the world become very
important people," said Cheek.
Kyla Watson, age 7, did it again for
the fifth time for Cheek's. Watson was
the high All-Around score for Cheek's
with a 36.725 for a fourth place. She
also received a 9.325 on vault, a 9.075
on bars, 9.100 on beam for a third
place and a 9.225 on floor. Even with a
36.725, she only placed fourth All-
Around. To win state a gymnast must
make at least a high 38.000 to 39.000.
Cary Winstead, 14, level 4 also
placed fourth All-Around in her age
group with a 36.075. She also placed
second on vault with a 9.500, and fifth
on bars with a 9.100.
In the level 3 division, nine-year-old
Stephanie Lawrence scored a 9.100 on
vault and a 8.950 on floor. SarahBeth
Lee, 8, placed on bars with a 9.125.
Carson Frier, 7, had a personal best
on beam with an 8.950.
In the level 4 division, 10-year-old
Gracie Thronton had a 9.275 on vault,
12-year-old Rachel McCoy with a
8.900 and Bailiegh Williams, 12, also
had a high score of 9.200 on vault.
In the level 5 category, Stephanie


'e big
Stewart placed first in the vault with a
high 9.400 and a first on the uneven
bars for a 9.100. "Stephanie has in-
creased her score on bars every meet,"
Chris Cheek said. "By this time next
year, we should be seeing Stephanie
hitting in the high 9's on bars."
Grecia Lagunas, 12, had an 8.550
on vault and 12-year-old Emily Gill
placed third on bars with an 8.850. An-
other first place vaulter was level 6
vaulter, Tessa Ferreira, age 10. Fer-
reira scored a 9.600 on vault and a
9.200 on the floor exercise.
All level 3's, 5's and 6 gymnasts will
compete one more time this year this
Saturday and Sunday.
"Our last meet of the season is the
state meet in Lakeland at the Lakeland
Center," Tom Cheek said.
The level 3's, 5's and 6's will com-
pete for the top seed in their specific
division. Each gymnast will have their
own age group to compete in. The en-
tire gymnast population that qualified
in each division will be there.

terested to come by and look around

he won 25 percent of their
games with a total of 16. If
someone had to decide be-
tween the American
League and National
League who was the best
pitcher it would be diffi-
cult. They used to do it that
way.
The Cy Young Award
came into existence in
1956. Denton True Young,
affectionately known as
Cy, won 511 games from
1890 to 1911. His records
are safe. Major League
baseball only has one ma-
jor award named after
someone and this is it.
There is no Babe Ruth


Award or Ted Williams
award, just awards. You
could change your name to
Most Valuable Player or
Home Run Champion but it
just wouldn't be Cy Young.
Don Newcombe won the
first award, he won 27
games in 1956. A case
could have been made for
Herb Score of the Cleve-
land Indians but there was
just one award. Warren
Spahn the next year edging
Jim Bunning, with Spahn
just getting beaten by Bob
Turley in 1958. Early
Wynn won in 1959 and
again Warren Spahn could
have been the winner. Vemn
Law won in 1960 and
Spahn this time in the same


league was runner up.
Whitey Ford won in 61 and
guess who was runner up,
Warren Spahn. Don Drys-
dale in '62, Dean Chance
in '64, Koufax in '63, '65
and '66 before they started
an award for each league.
While L.A. was dominat-
ing the award a case could
have been made for Whitey
Ford, Mudcat Grant, Ralph
Terry and Jim Kaat.
In 1967 they finally de-
cided to give two awards.
Jim Longborg and Mike
McCormick won the
awards in 1967. Maybe the
least known winners of the
Cy Young award, given to
the outstanding pitcher of
the year.

RELIGION


Thankful that I can give


By Derek Maul


I always enjoy the
weekend. I love my work,
but I also love the change
of pace and the refocus I
that comes from a shift in
activities. This past Satur-
day was especially fun
with a fund-raising auction at
church designed to benefit a local
mission.
Many people have lost their jobs,
or have less disposable income,
and this past year has been tough
for organizations that rely on dona-
tions. "Over and above" giving has
suffered across the board. Our
church is part of a denomination
that supports regional projects too
big for any one congregation to
handle alone. Consequently, there's
a tremendous "trickle-down" effect
that comes into play when large
numbers of churches reduce their
giving.
But my congregation has not cut
back on mission giving. Quite the
opposite; we're always looking for
creative ways to give more; and
that's what Saturday's auction was
all about.
People donated quality items for
auction, such as the handmade
wooden glider my friend Mike -
made, a weekend stay at someone's
beach house or mountain retreat,
art, jewelry etc.
One popular lot was an original,
mint-condition, "flapper" dress
from the roaring 20s. This "hot"
item was modeled by the senior
pastor; it made quite a splash.
We raised almost $10,000. It
doesn't sound like much, but we do
what we can as a small faith com-
munity and if others do what they
can; well, it all adds up.
Generosity always costs some-
thing; sacrificial giving doesn't get


its power through being
easy or how would we
get in touch with the deep
Principles?
Everyone who partici-
pated went away spiritual-
ly nurtured. Sure, it bene-
fited the camp and confer-
ence center. But, more im-
portantly, the event connected those
who gave of their time and their re-
sources to a penetrating truth that
more of us must own: "Giving is
foundational to spiritual growth."

* Do not store up for yourselves
treasures on earth, where moth
and rust destroy, and where thieves
break in and steal. But store up for
yourselves treasures in heaven,
where moth and rust do not de-
stroy, and where thieves do not
break in and steal. For where your
treasure is, there your heart will be
also. Matthew 6

Love and blessings

Sacrificial love


"Am I my brother's keeper?"
Apparently Michael Monsoor
thinks so. While serving in
Iraq in 2006, this Navy SEAL
was killed during operations in
enemy-held territory, when he
threw himself on top of a
grenade in order to save the
lives of his fellow SEALS. Ac-
cording to the Summary of Ac-
tion regarding the circum-
stances of his death, "Petty Of-
ficer Monsoor's actions could
not have been more selfless or
clearly intentional. While he
could have easily escaped, in-
stead Monsoor chose to protect
his comrades by the sacrifice
of his own life."
In his book I .iciiil Your Gi-
ants," Max Lucado tells of a
similar story that happened in a
Japanese prisoner-of-war camp
during World War II. It seems
that after the evening work de-
tail, a shovel was missing, so a
Japanese officer kept the Allied
prisoners in formation. Insist-
ing the shovel had been stolen,
the officer demanded that un-
less the guilty man stepped for-
ward, he would kill one prison-
er at a time until a confession
was made. At that moment, a
Scottish soldier stepped for-
ward and said, "I did it." After
the man was beaten to death
and the prisoners returned to
camp, the shovels were re-
counted. Turns out the Japan-
ese soldier had miscounted. No
shovel was missing after all.
Who does that? What kind
of person sacrifices their life to
protect another? While these
are obviously extraordinary
people in extraordinary cir-
cumstances, the Bible records
Jesus' words in John 15:12-13:
"Love each other as I have


loved you. Greater love
has no one than this, that
he lay down his life for
his friends." No doubt
Jesus loved us that way.
He gave His life for us in
the most sacrificial way,
so that we could be for- He
given of our sin against
God. But how do we Mi
love like that? Thankful-
ly, most of us won't ever By A
be in a situation to save
others from a live
grenade or being beaten to
death, so in what way can we
live out sacrificial love?
In Psalm 15:3 we find quite
the opportunity to practice this
kind of love on a regular basis:
" ... and (He) has no slander on
his tongue, does his neighbor
no wrong and casts no slur on
his fellowman." In our culture,
controlling our tongue is as un-
usual as risking one's life to
save another. Matthew Henry's
"Commentary of the Bible"
gives the following explana-
tion of this verse: "(He) is one
that contrives to do all the
good he can to his neighbors
and is tender of his neighbor's
reputation, especially careful
not to injure his neighbor in
his good name." If we really
understood the worth of repu-
tation, and the pain of losing it,
we would not make other's
faults the subject of our idle
talk, much less intentionally
repeating them in ridicule. We
show sacrificial love for others
when we control our tongue
and become our brother's
keeper of their good name.
Henry goes on to say that a
man who would protect his
neighbor's reputation "does not
take up a reproach (gossip),

al
In
kn


lip0 that is, he neither
SI brings it up, nor
jifi receives it from
another, if an ill-
S natured character
of his neighbor be
given him, he will
art disprove it if he
can; if not, it shall
tters die with him and
go no further. His
igie Land love will cover a
multitude of sins."
Love like that
will also minimize damage,
like a man throwing his body
over a grenade to spare the
lives of others. It is interesting
that the original Hebrew word
for neighbor simply translates -
another person. This includes
any and every other person!
We have the opportunity to
show sacrificial love by not
only refusing to be a source,
but "selflessly and intentional-
ly" throwing ourselves over
slander and gossip to protect
the reputation of another per-
son, simply because their
hearts matter!

One man's vegetable is another man's


heartburn


By James L. Snyder

The wonderful world of vegetables and
Yours Truly have come to a rather affable
decision. I will point out that it has been
a long time in coming, but finally, we
have reached a point of harmony.
All through my life, people have been
telling me how good vegetables were for
me and that I should eat them all the
time. Even as a child, I was a little suspi-
cious of all this pandering on behalf of
vegetables. If vegetables were as good as
people say they are, why are people try-
ing so hard to sell them to me?
"Go ahead," my mother would say to
me at the supper table, "eat your vegeta-
bles. They're good for you." Then, "You
cannot leave the table until you've eaten
all your vegetables!"
This in and of itself has made eating
vegetables a chore to be avoided at all
cost. I have often wondered why I have
had to eat through a plate of vegetables
before I could touch my dessert. It just
does not seem fair to me.
One of the reasons eating vegetables
has been such a chore for me lies in its
terminology. For example, there is a head
of lettuce and an ear of corn. Why are
vegetables associated with human body
parts? Every time I hear these sorts of as-
sociations, I get myself in a real veg-
etable stew.
Recently, I spent some time traveling
and after a while, I got a little weary of
eating out at restaurants all the time. This


whole thing finally broke when the wait-
ress taking my order asked me, "Would
you like a vegetable medley with that?"
Without even iliiikii-.. I responded, a
little sarcastically, I am sure, "No, I'd
rather listen to the Meat Cleaver Quar-
tet."
Quite honestly, the vegetable medley is
not music to my ears, even if it includes
corn.
Don't get me wrong, I have eaten my
share of vegetables throughout my life.
Actually, the purpose of vegetables on
your plate is to contrast the delicious
taste of roast beef.
One vegetable I cannot take no matter
how you slice it or dice it. I am referring,
of course, to broccoli. Where in the world
does broccoli comes from? And who, as-
suming they are in their right mind, de-
cided to eat the first broccoli?
I know there are plenty of broccoli
lovers out there who will be offended by
my coarse remarks about their favorite
vegetable. Everybody has a favorite veg-
etable and I would like to quickly point
out that broccoli is not mine.
Just look at it. It looks like a little tree.
I have never seen a tree anywhere that I
thought to myself; I'd like to eat that tree.
Up to this point in my life, I have resisted
all temptation to eat trees, regardless of
their size. In fact, I am thinking of start-
ing a brand-new organization called,
"Stop Eating Trees." It will go by the let-
ters SET. The slogan will be, "Let me
SET you straight on something." Then I


will go into all the reasons why we
should not eat trees.
I am fighting a losing battle at home
because the Gracious Mistress of the Par-
sonage will often prepare for herself a
dish of broccoli and cheese. What a waste
of good cheese.
I know someone will say to me, "Have
you ever tried broccoli before?" The an-
swer will be, yes. It was the most horrible
experience I have ever had.
If you can get by it looking like a tree,
you then need to chew it up in little bits,
by then you discover how nasty it all
tastes in your mouth. I do not know about
anybody else, but I love my stomach too
much to send down to it something like
this.
Therefore, the wonderful world of veg-
etables and I have come to an agreement.
It is a very simple agreement, and one I
can live with the rest of my life.
I happened to be at the supermarket
and as I wandered around, I found myself
in front of the vegetable counter. There
they were in all their assumed glory look-
ing as fresh as a daisy. I never stood be-
fore such an assembly. I walked over to
where the corn was so that the vegetables
could hear me and I had a little chat with
the entire group. The outcome was an
amiable agreement.
Our agreement runs something like
this; I will refrain from making sarcastic


cuts about vegetables and dishing them if
they, in return, stay off my supper dish.
The corn was all ears and the cabbage
nodded her head in thoughtful agreement.
The potatoes were all eyes and the sec-
tion of string beans was trying to string
me along with some kind of garden
rhetoric. However, it was the lettuce that
spoke up. "Sir, we all respect your opin-
ion about us. And I promise we will let
you alone if you lettuce alone."
People of different opinions should re-
spect each other's opinions and live to-
gether in harmony. Even the Bible says,
"But when ye sin so against the brethren,
and wound their weak conscience, ye sin
against Christ. Wherefore, if meat make
my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh
while the world standeth, lest I make my
brother to offend" (1 Corinthians 8:12-13
KJV).
Judging everybody by my opinions, I
will needlessly offend someone. One
man's vegetable just may be another
man's heartburn.

Marvin Cox is a starting
offensive guard at Central High
School in Phenix City, Ala. As a
senior, this is the year when
memories are supposed to be
made for Cox.
But in the first game, on the
very first play of the season,
Cox hyperextended his knee and
tore an ACL.
"I stayed in for the rest of the
drive and we scored a touch-
down," said Cox. "But I had to
come out after that."
Fortunately, Hughston Clinic
physicians were at the game and
immediately treated the injury.
A follow-up evaluation
confirmed a partial ACL tear.
The bad news for Cox-he was

going to miss a few games. "That
was not something I wanted to
hear," said Cox. "That got me hot."
The good news for Cox-his
injury was treatable through
non-operative methods of rest,
ice, elevation, compression wrap
and gradual stretching exercises
to restore motion in his knee.
After missing three games,
Cox was able to return to the
playing field, wearing a protec-
tive brace on his knee, and
contribute to his team's run of
good memories.
"The knee has been fine,"
said Cox. "I wanted to play
so bad. Thank you, to
everyone who helped me
at Hughston."

FWC responds to piranha caught in


South Florida retenti


A 14-year-old boy fishing in a retention pond near West
Palm Beach caught more than a largemouth bass in Octo-
ber. When he pulled his fish ashore, he and his father dis-
covered a red-bellied piranha on the end of the hook.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) biologists went to work immediately to determine
if this was a lone exotic and illegal fish or if others had
been placed in the pond as well. Ten days later, another pi-
ranha was discovered.
"We electro-fished the pond immediately, but did not
find any evidence of other piranha in those initial efforts,"
said Paul Shafland, exotic fish biologist with the FWC.
"However, we continued sampling this pond and collect-
ed a second specimen with gillnets. Although we have
continued sampling this pond, we have not collected any
other piranha."
The FWC believes the piranha were dumped in the pond
from someone's aquarium, which is illegal, but it is not
known how many were released.
"The only way to be sure all of the piranha are gone is
to apply a safe-to-use fish toxicant to kill any piranha that
might still be present in this pond," said Scott Hardin, the
FWC's exotic species leader. "Fisheries managers have
used rotenone since 1934 by to eradicate unwanted fish
without harming habitat, and its use is a standard fish-
management technique."
FWC biologists applied rotenone to the pond on Tues-
day, Nov. 17.
Piranha are completely prohibited, and no one is al-
lowed to legally possess this species in Florida, but indi-
vidual specimens have shown up eight times in recent
decades under similar circumstances. However, the FWC
has never found any evidence of a breeding population of

most reports of their ferocity have been greatly exaggerat-
ed. Photo: FWC
piranha.
"People may move here from another state with their pet
piranha only to find out their possession is illegal in Flori-
da. Other times, someone might have purchased one ille-
gally. For whatever reason maybe they're moving or just
don't want them anymore," Shafland said. "Then they
think the best thing to do is to release them in a nearby
pond, but they couldn't be more wrong. In fact, that's the
very worst thing they could do. Piranha in a freshwater
pond could feed on native freshwater species, such as
bream and largemouth bass."


on pond
Possession of piranha in Florida is punishable by a max-
imum $1,000 fine and a year in jail. Releasing any prohib-
ited species, such as piranha, into the wild in Florida is a
first-degree misdemeanor, also punishable by a $1,000
fine and a year in jail. In fact, releasing any nonnative
species into the wild is a crime.
Anyone who has a piranha or knows someone who does
should call the local FWC regional office and turn it in,
without fear of repercussions. Otherwise the piranha own-
er runs the risk of being caught and punished.
"We can help anyone who has an illegal species, such as
piranha, or anyone who can no longer care for a nonnative
species," Hardin said. "We encourage folks to call us, and
we'll help no questions asked."
Shafland said FWC biologists will continue to monitor
nearby waterways after all the fish have been removed
from this pond to ensure they haven't missed anything.
They expect to be removing dead fish for up to four days.
When they are certain the pond is free of all piranha, FWC
biologists will stock the lake with native freshwater fish.
"We'll continue looking and listening carefully to what
the anglers are telling us, though at this point I do not ex-
pect any piranha to show up elsewhere," Shafland said.
Both Shafland and Hardin stress that the young angler's
catch of a piranha is a serious reminder that never, under
any circumstances, should a nonnative species be released
into the wild.

Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404 FWCC (3922). If your
information results in an arrest, you may be eligible for a

Orlando SpeedWorld crowns 2009 track champs


You could tell the night air was dropping fast as you
saw drivers and fans going to their cars for a jacket. Hot
chocolate was flowing as well as hot coffee and boiled
peanuts but it was great having cool weather finally. No
more sweating too death but a jacket and maybe a throw
blanket was in order Friday night at SpeedWorld.
It was the final stock car race of the year, Nov. 13.
Championships were on the line. Some went home dis-
appointed, others were jumping for joy.
Winning the Super Late Model Championship was
Jared Allison. Allison, who will be a first time daddy
any day now, also made his dirt racing debut this year
in a Modified at Volusia Speedway Park. Allison
proved to his fans not only can he wheel a Super Late
but also a dirt Modified as well as an asphalt Modified.
Allison, who took over Chad Pierce's seat in David
Debelius's #38 Modified, won his first race in David's
car.
Pierce, who hurt his hand so bad that the doctors
would not let him race, was very pleased at Allison's
victory but also disappointed that he could not race
since he and Mark Emberson were in a tight battle for
the Modified Championship. Emberson took the Cham-
pionship due to Pierce's hurt hand. Not the way that
Mark wanted to win his first Modified Championship
but just one of those things that happen in life.
Billy Cuddy not only won the Super Stock 50 but also
the 2009 Super Stock Championship. Cuddy and David
Gould were also in a close points battle, but Gould had
mechanical problems and was unable to really compete
with Cuddy for the Championship.
Alan Bruns won the Late Model Championship in
spite of Todd Allen's win. Bruns went into the race
with a 44 point lead over Allen. Allen won the race with
Bruns coming in fourth but giving him enough points to
claim the 2009 Late Model Championship.
Bobby Simcox topped the Sportsman class but it was
Andy Nicholls taking home the Championship. Anthony
Sergi won the Truck race but it was Ben Kennedy tak-
ing home that Championship.
David Russell and Pedie Allison went into the Mini
Stock race tied with 336 points each. Russell won the
feature race and gained the 2009 Championship. Allison
was able to get to third but was never really a challenge

for Russell. Allison had some mechanical issues.
William Hindman finished last in the Strictly Stock
feature but went home the 2009 Strictly Stock Champi-
on of Orlando SpeedWorld. Hindman went into the
race with a 168 point lead over second place Neil Kir-
by.
In spite of Alex Kempf's bad night at SpeedWorld,
Kempf gained enough points to take the 2009 Legend
Championship at SpeedWorld. Kempf was blackflagged
for rough driving although the incident with him and
Brandon Thomson looked purely like a racing incident,
Russ Thomson hit Kempf under caution on purpose.
The officials called the incident between Kempt and

Brandon Thomson as rough driving and Kempf was
flagged off the track. Critter Saille took his first ever
feature win in the Legends class at SpeedWorld.
Michael Held went into the Bandolero Bandit race
with a four point lead over Tanner Cornwell. Tanner
took the win with Held finishing fourth giving Tanner
Cornwell the 2009 Bandolero Bandit Championship at
SpeedWorld. Mark Hooven took the Bandolero Young
Gun win and the 2009 Championship.

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.

Suwannee Valley collects gifts

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 Parsh-
ley 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, pro-
claimed our first National Thanksgiving
in 1789. Following this 1789 day of
Thanksgiving, the various states rather
than the President generally proclaim ob-
servances. In 1863, President Abraham
Lincoln issued a proclamation making the
last Thursday of November a National
Day of Thanksgiving. In 1941, Congress
