"There is definitely

"We're trying to publi-

Jordan said although
the process will be con-

"I think it'll cut down

Christmas in Wellborn


Spirit of sharing clearly

in evidence at WCA party


Submitted
The Wellborn Community Association
held its annual Children's Christmas Party
Dec. 18. We had planned to hold the
event outside to enjoy all the beautiful
decorations and lights our members had
put up around the pavilion. With the
weather not cooperating, we moved inside
but still managed to put up a shorter can-
dy cane lane leading to the front door.
Every child from six months to 12 years
old received a gift and got to visit with
Santa Claus. Teenagers were entered into
a drawing for larger prizes.
Everyone enjoyed the delicious hot
chocolate and homemade cookies brought
by many WCA members. Representatives
of the Suwannee High School band
played Christmas carols beautifully for
our enjoyment.
We were witnesses to some Christmas
spirit in action when two different chil-
dren who won drawings for the larger


toys, each said they wished to donate the
prize back because they already had one
at home. The first and second place cash
raffle prizes were won by people who
were actually at the party so exciting!
All three cash prizes went to people who
could really use the money.
Another Christmas spirit moment oc-
curred involving the cash raffle. A young
girl purchased two raffle tickets with her
own money and gave one to her friend.
This young girl won the $200 prize. She
went back to her seat, opened her enve-
lope, and immediately handed $100 to her
friend.
Many members worked hard to put this
event together, donating not only their
time and energy but money, toys, food
and supplies as well. I think all would
agree that it was well worth it to see the
smiles on the faces of the children and
share in their excitement. The Christmas
spirit is alive and well in Wellborn!

Richard L. Wright, M.D.

A new approach


to treating


varicose veins


Varicose veins afflict
more than 25 million
Americans with pain,
swelling and disfigure-
ment. But an FDA-ap-
proved catheter device
can help. This device uses
radiofrequency energy to
heat and close diseased
leg veins in a matter of
minutes. Clinical studies
have found the high-tech
procedure more than 97
percent effective at the
one-year follow-up visit
and virtually painless for
most patients.
Physicians such as
Richard L. Wright, M.D.,
a medical doctor in Lake
City for more than 33
years, are using this tech-
nique throughout the
country, usually in their
offices under a local anes-
thetic. Because the proce-
dure addresses a serious
medical condition and is
not considered cosmetic
surgery, it is covered by
Medicare and most pri-
vate health insurance
plans.
Half of all Americans
over age 50 have severe
varicose veins, and two-
thirds of all patients are
women. Risk factors in-


clude heredity, pregnancy
and careers that require a
vertical position through-
out the day, like nursing
and teaching, and compli-
cations may include leg
ulcers and dangerous
blood clots. Catheters
have recently come into
widespread use to replace
vein stripping, the general
surgery used to remove
varicose veins since the
1930s. The VNUS(r) Clo-
sureFAST(tm) device rep-
resents a major step for-
ward in catheter technolo-
gy because it's faster and
less painful for the patient
than older devices like
lasers. After the outpatient
treatment, patients simply
get up and walk out to re-
turn to normal activity the
next day with immediate
pain relief and virtually
no after effects. And with
the diseased primary leg
vein sealed, the body re-
stores healthy circulation
and the varicosity symp-
toms quickly dissipate.
For more information

stitute, 3140 NW Medical
Center, Lane, Suite 180,
Lake City, Fla. 32055, or

Treatment for Acromegaly
Acromegaly is a condition of increased growth hormone, which leads to
enlargement of the nose, hands, and feet. The condition is rare, diagnosed
in 3 to 4 people out of 1 million per year. Acromegaly is commonly
caused by a benign tumor that secretes growth hormone. Symptoms are
related to increased amounts of growth hormone and insulin-like growth
factor-1 (IGF-1). Associated symptoms include headache, swelling,
sweating, and fatigue. Characteristics of the condition include an
enlarged jaw, enlarged hands and feet, and enlarged nose. Also, the teeth
typically become spread apart. It may take many years before it is
diagnosed, because body changes occur slowly over time and are not
obvious right away.
Somatostatin analogues work to decrease over-production of growth
hormone. Octreotide (Sandostatin) is a somatostatin analogue that is
injected to decrease growth hormone production. Pegvisomant
(Somavert) is a recombinant growth hormone-receptor antagonist that
works to cause a decrease in IGF-I. Dopamine agonists such as
Bromocriptine (Parlodel) and cabergoline (Dostinex) may also decrease
secretion of growth hormone. These types of medications may be used in
combination with octreotide to potentially work better than either type of
medication alone.

My enemy
By Jim Holmes
I guess you are never certain how others see
you, but I'd like to think most folks believe that
I am honest and truthful. I also hope they see
me as tolerant and amicable, even with those
with whom I may disagree or dislike.
And yet I must be honest. There is one whom
I have come to despise. I have no patience with
him whatsoever and want nothing to do with
him.
My enemy has not yet said or done anything
to me or a loved one to raise my ire. But I
know it is only a matter of time just days
now before that changes and we must go up
against each other ... one on one.
Mind you, I know the hatred that bums in my
heart is because of my weaknesses and failings
... not his. And yet I have no plans to change
how I live my life, no matter how much he
might disapprove ... at least until after this an-
nual season of love, peace and tranquility pass-
es.
So, while I may see him lurking nearby this
holiday, I will pay him no mind. I will savor
this magic time with all the good things it has
to offer ... acting as if he never existed and nev-
er will. And if he inadvertently catches my at-
tention, I pledge I will walk around him or find
another path to my destination. I simply will
not let an encounter with him ruin this won-
drous time of year.
My wife says I am too hard on him. She says
he even shares my traits of honesty and truth-
fulness and that I should learn to embrace him
and what he has to tell me. And yet, I see no
immediate effort on her part to rush to him and
seek his knowledge. I suspect she fears him as
much as I do, but is simply less willing to admit
it.
Please understand, my fear and hatred of him
is not physical. Despite my advanced age, he
would be no real match for me. I am still big-
ger, faster and stronger than he is ... and he only
has that one good eye with which to see me.
When he does, however, I make a concentrated
effort to gaze elsewhere.
There are days when I wonder why I ever let
him into my life to begin with. It was my
choice, not his. One that I made willingly at
the time. And yet, almost since the day our
paths first crossed, I have regretted my deci-
sion.
Oh, in the very beginning, there were some
good times, with memories that make me smile.
When we first became acquainted I sought his
knowledge daily, but only because it supported
my own hopes, beliefs and dreams. After all,
he helped make my sacrifices worthwhile.
But then I once again weakened and found
myself on another path ... one that he refuses to
forgive me for taking. It is not that he is judg-
mental. He is not. He is simply incapable of
telling a lie or allowing me to come up with an
excuse for my transgressions.
That will change shortly, however, because
with the arrival of this New Year, I pledge I will
finally confront him ... that evil, good for noth-
ing bathroom scale.

OPINION

On cell phones and safety warnings


By Dwain Walden
There is a theory that cell phone usage
can cause brain cancer. But, there is no
consensus among scientists that this
claim is true.
But, a Maine legislator wants to make
that state the first to require warnings on
cell phones that they can cause brain can-
cer.
Strangely, there is much documenta-
tion that cell phones can cause car wrecks but no one is
pushing to have that warning printed on cell phones. That's
incredible irony, I would think. But, such irony can be
found in many venues of public health.
For instance, far more people die of cancer than shark at-
tacks. Yet, you can walk out on the beach and yell "shark!"
and everyone comes running out of the water. But walk into
a room full of smokers and yell "lung cancer!" and they
will look at you like you've gone nuts.
And there are warnings on some medications that say you
should not use them while driving heavy machinery. There
is no such warning on booze, however.
Chances are, there are more people who operate forklifts
with Jack Daniels than Nyquil in their systems. Also, booze
labels don't warn you that drinking too much can lead to
karaoke and looseness of pants.
Now it's a fact that cell phones emit some radiation. But
the Federal Communications Commission maintains that all
cell phones manufactured in the U.S. are safe in this regard.
I don't know what to believe about cell phone safety rela-
tive to these devices emitting radiation. I am sure about one
thing, however, and that is that since I started carrying a
cell phone some 10 years ago, the number of emergencies I
have to respond to have increased significantly. Should we
then be warned that they can cause indigestion or ulcers?
Or do we embrace that thing about "don't shoot the mes-
senger?"
Some people say they won't have a cell phone ... that
they are a bother..
But I must admit, I've found broad application for mine
beyond business, and now I feel kind of naked, even lost, if
I don't have mine with me.
For instance, when I go jogging, I always take my cell
phone. That way I can call my wife and tell her where to


pick me up if my ego and my body are not of similar un-
derstanding. Also, if I'm mugged while jogging and if I'm
still conscious and assuming that the mugger didn't steal
my cell phone, I can dial 911. And when we're Christmas
shopping in a big mall, I can call my wife and ask where to
find her. Also, when we're on a dove shoot, everyone can
be warned that the game warden has just pulled into the
field.
Now a new fear comes to me with this thing about brain
cancer warnings if you constantly have a cell phone to your
ear more people will start texting. Mix texting and dri-
ving, which some people do, and we get back to those
aforementioned ironies about health safety warnings.
Not only that, some English teachers have reported that
students' abilities to write complete sentences and form
them into essays have diminished because of the "pig
Latin" approach to text messaging. So we may be seeing
yet another irony: Our communication tc'ihn i .::i is ad-
vancing by leaps and bounds but our ability to read and
write may be digressing to some primeval level.
Ugh! My stomach make strange noise. I go eat now!

By Jay Liles
An hour's drive west on 1-10 from
Tallahassee, in the little town of Cot-
tondale, Florida's future unfolds on a
massive scale. Green Circle, the
world's largest wood pellet manufac-
turing plant, sits just off the Interstate,
nestled among tall pines. Its sole prod-
uct taking wood fiber and reducing
it to horse-pill sized pellets, suitable
for burning. For now its main cus-
tomers are coal-fired power plants in
Europe. But in the future Olaf Roed,
President and CEO of Green Circle,
knows U.S. markets will open once a
carbon-reduced, Cap and Trade mar-
ket opens in which his product will be
more valuable than oil and coal.
Green circle will profit not only from
providing a reliable, sustainable fuel
source, but also from the credits they
will earn for replacing carbon-creat-
ing fossil fuels in our power grid.
Currently Green Circle has a work-
force of more than seventy. With a cap
on carbon and a trading system for
credits, Olaf claims he can profitably
build two more giant processors.
Imagine the multiplier effect income


for tree farmers, haulers, brush clear-
ing companies, foresters and all those
who service these interests.
Heading east on 1-10 sits Suwannee
Farms, owned by Joe and Kenneth
Hall. Recently Joe has been a standing
room only speaker at events like the
Farms to Fuel Summit in Orlando.
The Halls have also seen the carbon
reduced future, one in which oil is too
expensive to economically run a mod-
em day dairy operation and "waste
product" is, well, a waste. Cow ma-
nure feeds a digester that powers
much of the farm's electrical use.
Crop residue is plowed back into the
soil and solar arrays light the barns
and heat the water. He is as close to
"off the grid" as any farmer can dream
yet ready to sell excess power to the
grid when parity occurs. And that day
is coming with Cap and Trade.
Finally, there is the Lykes Brothers
Ranch in south-central Florida. This
one hundred year old icon of Florida's
timber and cattle barons is now a di-
versified, worldwide conglomerate
with interests in cattle ranching, farm-
ing, forestry and citrus. Anyone who


calls Florida home knows the Lykes
brand.
On a seasonably cool fall day we
visited the Lykes Brothers Ranch to
talk carbon Cap and Trade with Char-
lie Lykes and his staff. Turns out they
can school us on much of what the en-
ergy future means for Florida and
farming. On this Old Florida ranch of
330,000 acres, stretching across two
counties, Charlie Lykes, the fourth
generation of Lykes family to run this
ranch, shows us an energy-cane crop
that will produce a bio-fuel capable of
replacing gasoline on a commercial
scale. He points out the many envi-
ronmentally sound practices em-
ployed by the ranch over the last few
decades to make this operation sus-
tainable. As I said, Charlie and his
family have been at this for more than
a century. He wants to be sure the next
generation of Lykes has the opportu-
nity to conserve this land for the next
one hundred years, or longer.
When asked how many people
work the ranch he remarks that of the

O'BRIEN AND OUR NEIGHBORS


'Bits & Pieces' from


south Suwannee County


By Ana Smith
The rush is over; most
of the cleanup is done;
all the leftovers are al-
ready eaten or stored in
the freezer for future
meals, most likely for
New Year's. We've most
likely visited all the fam-
ily and friends over the
last weekend, or had
them visit with us, and
now it's time to relax a
little, get back to our
daily routines.
This was one of the
quietest Christmas holi-
days I can remember in
decades, but I find I'm
still filled with love and
contentment because the
telephone calls from
loved ones brought them
all right here to O'Brien,
if only for a short time.
And we've all promised
to make this next year
the one in which we will
see each other and spend
some special time to-
gether. We realize we are
all getting "up there" in
age, and God willing,
we'll make the time that's
left count.
I sincerely hope you
all enjoyed a wonderful
time with family and
friends, and that you did
find it in your hearts ...
and your wallets ... to
help at least one person
or one family have a re-
ally good Christmas.
I learned that this year
several families I know
about were numbered
among those that, even
though they are not in
the welfare system, have
been struggling to keep a
roof over their heads and
food on their table be-
cause of work hours be-
ing cut and the family
incomes suffering. How-
ever, the ones I know
about have strong faith
and caring family and
church family, and
through the kindness of
others still managed to
have a good Christmas.
To those who were in-
strumental in providing
CHRISTMAS for fami-
lies such as these, you
received a blessing in
such a special way.
As we head into the
new year, I do have one
request to ask. If you
have any time to give
whether during the week
or on the weekend, think
about volunteering at one
of the many special orga-
nizations that need help.


You can read about so
many of them in this
newspaper ... any of the
nursing homes, for in-
stance! Local animal res-
cue groups, the city or
county animal shelter,
the schools where you
can be so instrumental in
tutoring our children,
helping with the reading
programs, etc., as well as
your local library. I'm
sure the hospitals would
be grateful for folks who
can help ... in my "day"
they used to be called
"candy-stripers," but
whatever they are called
now it's an opportunity
to be a vital part of this
community.
And although you read
about "Toys for Tots," or
"Toys for Kids," needing
your help over the
Christmas holiday, the
need for help for fami-
lies hit hard in this econ-
omy is one that goes on
all year long. Contact the
health department to find
out how you can help;
talk to your church about
helping if they have a
food or clothes pantry, or
take part in the visitation
ministry, which includes
visiting shut-ins, making
hospital visits to congre-
gation members, or
bringing a meal or two to
someone who is ill or re-
cuperating from an acci-
dent or surgery. There
are so many needs in
Suwannee County, and
you will be richly
blessed by giving of
yourself and your time ...
as well as your financial
support, if you are able
to give it.
From "Humorous Quo-
tations":
"Start doing what's
necessary, then what's
possible, and suddenly
you are doing the impos-
sible."
"When your outgo ex-
ceeds your income, your
upkeep will be your
downfall."
"For the ignorant, old
age is winter; for the
learned, it is the har-
vest."
"The optimist makes
his own heaven and en-
joys it as he goes
through life. The pes-
simist makes his own
hell and suffers as he
goes through life."
"Lord, when we are
wrong, make us willing
to change. And when we


I learned
that this
year
several
families I
know about
were
numbered
among
those that,
even
though they
are not in
the welfare
system,
have been
struggling
to keep a
roof over
their heads
and food
on their
table
because of
work hours
being cut
and the
family
incomes
suffering.
However,
the ones I
know about
have strong
faith and
caring
family and
church
family, and
through the
kindness of
others still
managed to
have a
good
Christmas.
are right, make us
easy to live with."
This one is dedicated
to Brother George ...
"The clergy can do noth-
ing about rainy Sundays;
they are in sales, not in
management!" (I hope
he's laughing!)
To each and every one,
may the year 2010 bring
you better health, a little
more wealth, a lot of
love and happiness, and
an outpouring of bless-
ings to share. God bless!

Take charge of

your diabetes

An educational program for
adults with Type 2 diabetes
Suwannee County Extension is now offering an
educational program to help adults with type 2 di-
abetes control their blood sugar to feel better and
reduce risk of health complications. The program
will include nine classes taught by a team of
qualified educators and health professionals, and
a personal consultation with a registered dietitian.
Health assessments (height, weight, and blood
pressure measurements) are included. Classes
will run from January 28th to March 25th and
will be held on Thursdays from 4 to 6 p.m.
We are now recruiting participants for this pro-
gram. If you have been diagnosed with type 2 di-
abetes, are at least 21 years old, and are interested
in being a part of this program, please call the
Extension office at 386-362-2771 by Jan. 25. The
$75 program fee includes the educational classes,
nutrition consultation, program materials and
health assessments.
Class size is limited!


Start your new year off right.
Let us help you with your New
Year's resolutions. The Suwan-
nee County Extension Service
is offering an eight-week, hour-
long evening program that can
be used to improve your health,
personal finances or both. This
class will provide tips to im-
prove your health and wealth.
Class is open to all. Because
seating is limited, pre-registra-
tion is required. The fee is $7
per person ($10 per couple),
which includes taste testing and
class materials. There are
many similarities between
health and personal finance is-
sues and behavior change
strategies. No step is too small
to get started and you can never
be too early or too late! Call
the Extension office at 386-
362-2771 to pre-register before
January 4, 2010. First class
starts on January 6, 2010 at 6

High-speed chase ends in arrest


Staff
A Live Oak man led police on a high-
speed chase before he was apprehended
early Monday, according to a report from
the Live Oak Police Department.
Joseph Danby Lewis, 26, of 12654 US
129 was arrested on charges of driving on
a suspended or revoked driver's license
(habitual) and aggravated fleeing or at-
tempting to elude police, jail records
show.
While traveling east on E. Duval Street
at about 1:30 a.m., Lewis passed a vehicle
in a no passing zone at a high rate of
speed, running it off the road, according to
LOPD officer Thomas Faller.
As Faller attempted to stop Lewis's
black 2003 Chevrolet pickup, Lewis re-
portedly fled east on CR 136 then turned
onto a dirt road and stopped.
Faller pulled in behind him. When Fall-
er exited his vehicle and started walking
toward the truck, Lewis spun the truck


around and accelerated toward Faller, ac-
cording to an LOPD press release. Faller
then got back to his car and pulled off the
road to avoid being hit by Lewis's truck.
Lewis again fled east on CR 136, at
speeds reaching more than 100 mph, the
press release said.
The pursuit continued into Columbia
County along CR 417 and US 90. Once in
Columbia County Lewis turned south on
CR 252A and continued west on CR 252,
the press release said.
Lewis was finally stopped when his
tires were punctured by spike strips de-
ployed by the Florida Highway Patrol. No
one was hurt in the pursuit.
Lewis was booked at the Columbia
County Jail and transferred to Suwannee
County Jail to await arraignment.
LOPD was assisted in the pursuit by
Suwannee County Sheriff's Office, Co-
lumbia County Sheriff's Office and the
Florida Highway Patrol.

Farming in a Cap and Trade future

on horseback is still the
most cost effective means

his trusty steed.

more opportunity in a car-

energy, store carbon and
feed the world. Their

from Cap and Trade as
well.

trict's director of resource
management, said the new
requirement will help ad-
dress water needs within
the District.
"Water supply is a
statewide issue," Dinges
said. "We all must do our
part to conserve."
Unlike other areas of the
state where irrigation
schedules are set according
to addresses, water users in
the SRWMD will be al-
lowed to set their own
schedules as follows:
Choose one day per week
to water landscapes during
Eastern Standard Time,
which begins the first Sun-
day in November; choose
two days per week during
Daylight Savings Time, be-
ginning the second Sunday
in March. In both cases, ir-
rigation should not occur
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

those who say carbon re-

Cap and Trade will be too
costly to farmers. They
point to higher fuel and fer-
tilizer costs. This presumes
fossil fuels, the base ingre-
dient of gas and fertilizer
will not go up in cost over
the next two decades. Any-
one who saw the run up in
fuel costs in 2008 and the
resulting economic calami-
ty that ensued knows that
betting on stable energy
prices is a sure loser.
From Green Circle, to
Suwannee Farms, to Lykes
Brothers Ranch and on big
and small farms across
Florida, smart farmers
know change is in the air.
Where some see disaster,
many see opportunity.
Where some see job loss,
others are creating jobs and

"Reducing landscape ir-

efficiently helps us make
the most of our resources
and it reduces irrigation
costs," Dinges said.
Those who wish to devi-
ate from the water conser-
vation rule must apply for
a water use permit.
The requirement is part
of the District's new water
use permitting rules.
In addition to water con-
servation for landscape ir-
rigation, the new rules re-
quire anyone applying for
a water use permit to im-

Dinges said only new

Christmas Eve crash takes a life


Continued From Page 1A

side of the vehicle struck a large oak tree.
The car overturned and Brakenwagen,
whom FHP said was not wearing a seat
belt, was ejected. He was pronounced
dead at the scene.
Brandy Brakenwagen, the wife of
Steven, was filled with emotion Mon-
day.
"It doesn't seem real," she said. "It's
like he's going to come home and walk
through the door at any moment."
Steven was well-liked in the commu-
nity and ran a business out of his home
called Steve's Electronics, Brandy said.
He often would fix computer software
problems in homes throughout Suwan-
nee County and neighboring areas.
Brittany Warder, 19, Steven's oldest


daughter, said "it was quite a shock" to
hear the news of her father's passing.
"He raised me. He taught me a lot
about cooking and painting interiors,
and about the structure of buildings."
Brittany said she spoke with her 10-
year-old sister Sarah, who seems to be
doing OK. "I think because she's young
that she is taking it better than the rest
of the family," Brittany said.
Steven and wife Brandy were raising
Sarah, Steven's daughter from a previ-
ous marriage, and their 2-year-old son
Christian together. The couple were ex-
pecting an addition to their family at
anytime, said Brandy, who is pregnant.
"He was very brave and very smart,"
Brandy Brakenwagen said of her hus-
band. "He's very much missed and
loved by everybody."

posed to. But we actually
see a second full moon
about every two-and-a-half
years. The last one occurred
in May 2007. That's not all
that uncommon, in cosmic
terms.
So a blue moon isn't
blue, and isn't even all that
rare. What gives?
Simple. The current
meaning of the phrase,
which dates from 1946, is
based on a mistake, say ex-
perts. An amateur as-
tronomer misread an al-
manac from 1937, it ap-
pears. The "real" meaning
pertains to the number of
full moons per season, not
month.
In any case, the current


understanding of the phrase
seems here to stay.

I A I I

Q: What's the difference between a direct
and indirect dental restoration?
A: Both are essentially fillings used to
repair teeth damaged by decay or injury.
A direct restoration is a filling put into a
cavity cleaned and prepared by your
dentist. The work is done in one visit.
Direct restorations include the traditional
silver-colored dental amalgam, glass
ionomers, resin ionomers and some
composite resin fillings. Indirect
restorations are more complicated and
generally required at least two visits.
Indirect restorations are manufactured at
a dental laboratory based on an
impression of the tooth made by your
dentist during a first visit. Terms you will
hear when talk is of indirect restorations
are inlays, crowns, veneers, onlays and
bridges. And these can be made with
gold, base metal alloys, ceramics and
composites. With all these options, it can
be difficult to know which is right for you.
One of the factors in the decision is the
role of the tooth that needs repair. How
much load does it bear, for instance, in
chewing? Or is the work to be done more
for cosmetic purposes? The best way to
make the decision on direct or indirect
restorations is through direct consultation
with your dentist.

SPORTS COMMENTARY


The old bowl


'Tis the season. The bowl season is /
upon us. Every bowl now has a corporate I
sponsor. But in the old days
it wasn't like that and bowls Sportabout
were much more By Tom Daniels
significant. All the
important bowls were
played on New Year's Day and they went right through
the time zones. Television had discovered you could do
four bowl games on one day and not overlap. The
Orange Bowl usually kicked it off followed by the
Sugar and Cotton with the granddaddy of them all, the
Rose Bowl.
The Rose Bowl, of course, had great significance.
Your female family members watched the parade. The
parade would cut into one of the games. You got to the
portable TV rabbit ears and all, scanning the airways
for CBS or ABC as NBC usually had the parade. Bowl
time was a bit simpler.
Then, before you realized it, there was a Gator Bowl,
a Tangerine Bowl, a Blue Bonnet Bowl and a Liberty
Bowl, but to name a few. Bowl games sometimes
included spectacular plays.

Bowler of the Week
By Debbie Rice
Because of the holidays, the King's and Queen's
didn't bowl so there is no bowler of the week.
However we did have a lot of good bowling. Mon-
day Morning Blues, Ray Goodman with 535, Aline
Neveils with 526 and Larry Robinson with 514.
Sassy Seniors, Larry Schattle with 598, Jerry hakes
with 552 and Dave Tripp with 510. 9 Pin No Tap,
Aline Neveils with 700, Lorrie Geiger with 697 and
Jerry Hakes with 655. Wednesday Men's league,
Joe Ruwe with 576, Tony Vasil with 572 and John-
ny Murrah with 571.
We have people tell us all the time that "I'm not
a good enough bowler to bowl on a league". Not
true; anyone can bowl on a league. League bowlers
have averages and handicaps. Your first three
games will determine your average. The total of the
three games divided by three is your average. That

total is subtracted from 290 pins. Then
that total is multiplied by 90 percent. I
know that it sounds complicated but
we have people that can do the math.


Long story short, if your average is
117 your handicap would be 83. That
is 83 extra pins per game. The higher
your average the lower your handicap.
So join a league. It's lots of fun and
good exercise.

The game I remember
most was the 1962 Liberty
Bowl. Oregon State versus
Villanova. (Yes, Villanova


had some good teams
before they dropped the
program to save money in
1980. They restarted in
1985 to generate income.
Howie Long and Brian
Westbrook are two of its
famous football alumni.)
The star of the game was

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Heisman Trophy that year. I
think it was the first play
from scrimmage. Baker ran
99 yards on the quarterback
option for the only score of
the game. Obviously still a
record.
The thing I remember
most was watching the
game with my brother and
a bunch of his friends.
Before halftime my father
offered to go get cold cuts
for us to eat. Someone
came up with and alternate
plan ... White Castle. Not
Weston's, Gino's or the
Golden Arches, there was
no perverse looking King
and we had no Colonel.


After taking the order we
thought it would be a good
idea to call it in. A hundred
twenty-eight hamburgers,
please. My Dad, a bit
stunned by the number,
wanted to know how
much? Fifteen thirty-six,
shooting $20, was the
reply. A hundred sixty-six
hamburgers, some Tang
and $19.92 later our hunger
was momentarily satisfied
... till the next game. White
Castle hamburgers were 12
cents apiece and there was
no Tostitos Bowl. Actually
there were no Tostitos. they
arrived with the Cherry
Bowl circa 1980.

race.
"My girls turned in another good performance
and were definitely running their best in these last
two races of the season," said coach Paul
Buchanan.
From the beginning of the season the girls were
on a training plan that would have them running
their fastest at the end of the season and they were
right on schedule.
"Although we did not finish in the top six to ad-
vance to the state championship meet, I was still
proud of the team because our goal was to make it
to this regional championship race," said
Buchanan. "The team gained some valuable ex-
perience from this race that will build their confi-
dence and help them next year."
Bishop Kenney won the regional meet with
Bolles and Episcopal following closely in second
and third, respectively.
"We knew our region competition was tough
but we didn't realize to later how strong the teams
were in our region. In a turnabout at the state
championship race the Bolles girls would take
first with Bishop Kenny placing second and Epis-
copal third," said Buchanan. "There is no doubt
that we were in the toughest region in the state,
the Suwannee girls can be proud that they com-
peted against the best. Some high school sports
programs could go an entire season and not face a
top 10 team. In one race we competed against
three of the top four teams in the state. In the ma-
jority of the races we participated, top teams were
in attendance, from state runner Class lA McClay
to Class 4A State Champion Chilies."
With another great performance and time of
22:50, Camill Chambliss was Suwannee's first
finisher. Suwannee's second and third runners
were Lindsay Michal (24:16) and Amanda Mc-
Manaway (25:17). Completing the Suwannee top
five were Danyel Batton (26:25) and Amanda
McClain (26:59) with good times. And running
hard were Suwannee's sixth and seventh runners,
Hanna Reagan (29:28) and Krissy Sardina
(30:17).
"My duel sport participation athletes were fa-
tigued and injured going into this event and it
hampered their race performance, however it still
did not stop them from giving 100 percent effort,"
said Buchanan. "I am proud of their race and their
entire season. For most of the girls it was their
first year of running cross country and for all of
them it was their first full year of running under
my training. They have learned a lot about run-
ning, training, racing, competing and more. In fact
some of the girls learned that they can push them-
selves further than they thought possible and they
achieved more then they imagined when com-
pared to the beginning of the season. Their fitness
was coming around and they were all excelling to-
ward the end of the season, the proof showed in
their improving times in workouts and races. I am
confident in them, and if they all continue to dedi-
cate themselves to running and continue to train
hard they will be even better next season and they
will return to the regional championship meet as a
stronger team. There are many good memories
from this season. One thing that I will remember
about this regional race, this season, and this spe-
cial team occurred minutes before the start of the
race. As the team huddled together I had just fin-
ished giving last words of strategy and reassur-
ance and I turned to the team's captain and only
senior, Amanda McManaway for the last word.
Amanda simply and elegantly told her teammates
'I want to thank everyone for this season.' And I
thought to myself how appropriate those words,
and agreed that this was a fun and successful sea-
son."

Among the most popular sites online these days
are newspaper websites. Yes, Newspaper sites.
Maybe that is because newspaper sites are
trusted, cherished and informative local content
destinations.

#1 Newspaper websites are locally dominant as the number one
local website in 22 of the top 25 U.S. Markets.

74 Million. In September 2009, 74 million unique visitors
went to a newspaper website. That represents 38% share of visitors.

3.4 Billion. Visitors looked at 3.4 billion pages and
spent 43 million hours on newspaper sites in September 2009.

2U0.% / Newspaper share of local online advertising is 26.9%
exceeding yellow pages, TV sites and radio sites combined.

$3.1 Billihn. Advertising on newspaper websites
exceeded $3.1 billion per year

2A X. Borrell reports that newspaper website's share of local
online revenue is more than that from all other local media
combined (2.8x directories; 2.9x that of local tv; 12x radio station
sites, 20x business and alternative papers and 28x magazines)

48% People do more than visit a newspaper site. 46% of adults
visiting a newspaper website took some action. More newspaper
website users took action after seeing online advertising than all
other local sites, and portals according to OPA research.

28%. The percentage of newspaper websites visitors who go
once a day or more frequently.

Content sites produce greater purchase intent,
online ad awareness, brand favorability and message association
than the market norms, portals and ad networks according to
OPA research.

New Year's Eve celebration



set for Bo Diddley Plaza


GAINESVILLE The
Gainesville Department of
Parks, Recreation and Cul-
tural Affairs will host
Downtown Countdown, a
New Year's Eve celebra-
tion concert at the Bo Did-
dley Community Plaza.
Headlining the concert
will be the Beatles tribute
band, The Imposters. In ad-
dition to drawing large
crowds for their appear-
ances at the "Free Fridays"
concert series, The Im-
posters are the root band
for the annual All Ameri-
can Song Fest Fourth of
July celebration. The band
began in 1999 as a two-
piece Beatles, Lennon and
McCartney tribute. It has
now grown to a seven-
piece group comprised of
some of the areas most
popular musicians. Band
members include Mike
Boulware, Don David,
Michael Derry, Mark
Loveland, Mick Marino,
Rob Rothschild and Ron
Thomas. Sitting in for
Rothschild on the drums
will be Larry Thompson.
The Imposters play a full
range of Beatles music
from the popular hits of the
early heydays, through the
experimental era of "Re-
volver" and "Sgt. Pepper's
Lonely Hearts Club Band,"
to the final rooftop appear-
ance and "Abbey Road."
The Imposters also throw
in some great covers of


other groups such as The
Byrds, The Hollies, Jimi
Hendrix, Neil Young and
Left Bank.
Opening for the Im-
posters is the group Other
Voices. Other Voices brings
a fun mix of upbeat songs
to the celebration. The
band participated in the
"Free Fridays" concert se-
ries both with their own
feature concert and as part
of the lineup for the 40th
Anniversary of Woodstock
Tribute. The Woodstock
concert drew a crowd of
3,000 breaking all previous
attendance records for the
series. The four musicians
who make up the band are
Michelle Ott (percussion
and guitar), Dan Tampas
(voice and guitar), Fagan
Arouh (voice and guitar)
and Alan Hill (bass and oc-
casional voice). With a
hallmark of intricate vocal
harmonies and tight
arrangements, they per-
form acoustic originals, se-
lect standards and obscure
classics in the realm of pop,
folk, blues and jazz. They
have described their music
as folk and roll.
The free concert will be-
gin at 9 p.m. and run until
12:30 a.m. At the stroke of
midnight, there will be
showers of streamers and
confetti along with the
sounds of noisemakers
passed out to the audience
earlier in the evening.


The Imposters play a full range of Beatles music from the
popular hits of the early heydays, through the experimental
era of "Revolver" and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club
Band," to the final rooftop appearance and "Abbey Road."

Thumb-pickers Hall of Fame and is an honorary member
of the Chattanooga Thumb-pickers. Bob Saxton will bring
the crowd to its feet with his picking! Bob will be on the
program both Friday and Saturday.
Featured both Friday and Saturday, the Wilson Family
Band will entertain you with their variety of instruments
and talent. Mention The Wilson Family Band around any-
one who's had the opportunity to hear them and the re-
sponse is enthusiastic comments. "You should hear that
little Katie sing!" "Young Clint is developing into a phe-
nomenal talent!" "Each time we hear them, they keep im-
proving!" "The Wilson Family really knows how to enter-
tain." People are impressed by the music, family commit-
ment, faith and, perhaps most of all, genuineness.
Tomorrow's News is one of Florida's premier bands. Its
hard-driving sound and tight harmonies bring new life to
the bluegrass sound. The band enjoys entertaining people
and it shows during performances. Definitely a band on its
way up. "Tomorrow's News is one of the best groups to
come along in quite sometime, with tight family har-
monies and hard driving banjo. They are exciting to see
and hear, said Travis Perry of Great American Bluegrass
Festival.
The Gandy Brothers had many different influences, in-
cluding original bluegrass artists such as Bill Monroe and
Jimmy Martin all the way to today's new bluegrass artists
like Cadillac Sky, The Infamous Stringdusters, Nickel
Creek and Mountain Heart. The group also draws influ-

Dear Classified Guys,
I've been looking for the perfect job
for a long time, and a few weeks ago I
picked up the classified and saw it
in print. Seizing the opportunity, I
jazzed up my resume and landed an
interview. I brushed up on my inter-
view skills and even made my wife
ask me questions so I could practice.
I really felt prepared. Then on the day
of my interview, I was totally dis- A4
appointed. After meeting with the .
HR manager for a few minutes, he 7
directed me to the guy doing the
hiring, the new boss. I quickly real-
ized this guy was completely unqual-
ified to do an interview. At first he
was vague about the job. Then once
I got him talking, he turned out to be
a total chatterbox. I don't think he
asked but a few questions. I listened
to him for almost 40 minutes. I like
the company and the job as it was
defined in the ad, but feel I got shaft-
ed on this interview. Are there any
ways to salvage this opportunity?
Carry: Unfortunately when you're
hunting for a job, you don't always get
to choose your boss. Sometimes you
have to make the best of the situation.
Cash: The circumstances you encoun-
tered are the reason many companies


leave the hiring to a human resources
department. Some managers, while quite
qualified to supervise a department, lack
the skills to conduct a good interview.
Carry: It's unfortunate that you've
run into that case. However, all hope is
not lost.
Cash: Considering how your inter-
view unfolded, you may be in a better
position than you think. Even though
you were not asked many questions
about yourself, you obviously connected
with "the boss" well enough for him to
feel comfortable in talking about himself.
Carry: It may have simply been
important for you to make a good
impression during the interview and not

necessary to discuss your background
in detail. If your resume is in order, and
you listed your credentials effectively,
then that may be enough to speak for
your qualifications.
Cash: While your perception of the
interview left you thinking it went
poorly, your future boss may not have
had the same opinion. Allowing him to
talk may have made a very good first
impression. After all, it's difficult to
judge how well an interview goes when
you're the one participating.
Carry: So for now, there may be no
need to salvage anything. Your best bet
is to follow up with a thank you note and
wait for the call for your perfect job!

Good Job
Most people would love to have their
dream job, but what is the perfect job? A
new study released this year to find the
best and worst jobs reviewed 200 profes-
sions based on five criteria including
environment, income, physical demand,
employment outlook and stress. The # 1
occupation was mathematician, followed
by actuary, statistician, biologist and
software engineer. The worst jobs, rank-
ing with the lowest scores, were lumber-
jack, dairy farmer, taxi driver, seaman
and EMT. But then again, the perfect job
is the one you love!
Keep Talking
Almost anyone can carry out an inter-
view, but not everyone is good at it.
Celebrities like Oprah and Jay Leno have
mastered the art and had great success
with their careers. Unfortunately, being a
celebrity isn't enough to guarantee suc-
cess. The road to talk shows is littered
with those who didn't quite make it.
Among the stars that tried their hand at
interviewing were Chevy Chase, John
McEnroe, Sharon Osborne, Richard Bey,
Camie Wilson, Richard Simmons,
Magic Johnson and even the puppet Alf.
Got a question, funny story, or just want to give
us your opinion? We want to hear all about it!

Doesn't Add Up
After applying for a job and having
two interviews with partners at an
accounting firm, I was finally sitting in
the manager's office to discuss salary.
He was a jovial gentleman who tried to
make me feel comfortable, but I was
still nervous about receiving an offer.
As I sat there awaiting him to say
something, he took out a piece of
paper and said that he would write
down an offer for a starting salary.
When he finished, he folded it and
pushed it across the desk.
Upon opening it, my eyes practi-
cally burst and I blurted out, "Wow,
that's seven figures!"
"You're right," the manager laughed,
"and as an accountant, your first job is
to figure out where to put the decimal!"
(Thanks to David H.)


This "hair" styling job
will keep you hopping.
