Relief's
coming for
city gas
customers
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
Residents of Live Oak who
pay for city gas will soon see a
credit on their utility bill as part
of a $300,000 refund.
"I anticipate it could be in ex-
cess of $50," said Mayor Sonny
Nobles.
The refund comes from a
consortium to purchase gas the
city was part of. He said the
consortium was not successful
and was eventually disbanded,
leaving a credit to the city of
$300,000.

Davis and two members of
his congregation, Bobbie Lake
and Steve Carter, had just re-


turned Sunday from a weekend
missions trip to Haiti, when the
world got the news that a cata-
strophic earthquake had struck
the country Tuesday, spurring a
tsunami watch for most of the
region.
"We went down to take mon-
ey and to buy rice for the peo-
ple there this past weekend,"
said Davis. "We had also gone
to LaSalle to see a church that
was being built there."

A draft of a policy that would
allow Suwannee students to open
school board meetings with the
pledge of alliance and a solem-
nizing message came before
board members at a Tuesday
workshop.
The school board agreed in
December to have attorney Andy
Decker draft a formal policy on
how religious practices should be
carried out at board meetings and
at the various school sites, after
debate was stirred by local cou-
ple John and Rene Checkett, who

EXTENSION UPDATE


State agriculture officials Tuesday
announced the arrest in Suwannee
County of the husband and wife own-
ers of a Central Florida nursery and the
couple's son for allegedly violating
laws involving the movement of citrus
products from a quarantined location.
The arrests were made just eight
weeks after one of the owners, Shelby
A.
Mahon, 61, and another son were ar-
rested by Bronson's Office of Agricul-
tural Law Enforcement for allegedly
transporting hundreds of diseased cit-
rus trees from their quarantined citrus
nursery in Clermont to North Florida,
where OALE detected the trees at its
interdiction station in Suwannee Coun-
ty.
Authorities say the owners of John's
Citrus Trees nursery in Clermont, John
L. Mahon, 66 and his wife Shelby, as
well as son Daniel Mahon, 37, alleged-


ly sold 724 juvenile citrus trees infect-
ed with citrus canker to an unsuspect-
ing citrus grove owner for some
$5,700 last summer and then sold ad-
ditional trees to Bronson's undercover
officers earlier this month.
In addition, OALE investigators
claim that when department plant in-
spectors visited a retail outlet of the
nursery at a Central Florida flea mar-
ket nearly a month ago, John Mahon
engaged in threatening and intimidat-
ing behavior towards the inspectors,
forcing them to leave the premises.
Warrants were issued charging the
three suspects with fraud in the illegal
sales of the diseased trees, a first-de-
gree felony, and a misdemeanor charge
of engaging in nursery stock sales by
unregistered dealers. John Mahon was
also charged with misdemeanor battery
involving the threatening behavior they
allegedly exhibited to department plant


inspectors when they visited the nurs-
ery's retail outlet.
Daniel Mahon was arrested on Dec.
31 by OALE. At that time it was de-
termined that John and Shelby Mahon
were out of state. Early Tuesday
morning, John and Shelby Mahon were
detained by the Lake County Sheriff's
Office on the outstanding warrants and
were booked into the Lake County
Jail.


NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL

Basics of livestock safety Reducing the

S. .- x oino.


By Mary Sowerby
UF/IFAS R....;-., l Dairy


Extension


It was a routine dairy
farm day. My friend had a
cow to be bred, so he
opened the bull pen gate .
without first securing the
bull as he had done many
times before. But this day
the bull was not his usual docile self.
Very sadly, my friend's next trip was to
his gravesite.
While bulls account for only two
percent of the cattle population, they are
responsible for more than half of
livestock-caused fatalities. Always use
extreme caution around all male farm
animals especially bulls. My friend
happened to be killed by a Guernsey
bull, but within a month of his death,
someone else from the same county was
killed by an Angus bull. Beware of
bulls of all breeds dairy or beef.
More injuries occur each year from
farm animals than from tractors and
other machinery. Accidents occur
primarily from poor judgment or lack of
understanding animal behavior.
Livestock have unique visual
capabilities, sensitivity to noise, and
strong territorial instincts which should
be understood before handling them.
Disease and maternal instincts also
affect livestock behavior. Large animals
like cattle can be bitten by a rabid
animal and stricken with rabies as easily
as humans from a rabid dog's bite.


Not only can farm animals
injure humans by accidents,
but potentially through
disease transmittal too.
Sanitation, especially hand
washing, when working with
animals; milk pasteurization;
thorough cooking of eggs and
meat; and special precautions
whenever an animal is
behaving unusually, can
prevent disease transmission from
animals to humans. Leptospirosis,
rabies, brucellosis, salmonellosis,
ringworm and coccidiosis are some of
the more prevalent diseases which
humans can contract from farm animals.

Following are safety tips for working
around livestock gleaned from an
Oregon State University fact sheet
entitled "Livestock Safety".

1. Animals respond to routine; be
calm and deliberate, avoid sudden
movements.

2. Avoid the animal's "blind spot."
Approach from the front or side.

3. Animals are very sensitive to
noises. Avoid loud noises and do not
yell.

4. Many animals are colorblind, have
poor depth perception, and are
extremely sensitive to contrasts. Assess
your lighting situation and avoid rapid
changes from light to dark.

5. Many injuries are caused by a
startled animal pinning the handler
against some surface. When working
around livestock, always leave yourself
a way out, especially when working in
close quarters.

6. To help avoid territorial behavior,
distribute feed in large, unpredictable
patches.

7. Plan ahead. Always wear the
proper personal protective equipment
(i.e. close-toed shoes or boots, gloves,
etc.) for the job.

8. Maintain equipment and facilities
in good repair and keep things clean and
in order.

I would add, never jump a fence into
an unknown herd of cattle or other
livestock. If bulls or rams, etc., are
amongst the herd, or curiosity leads to a
stampede of heifers in your direction,
you may not have time to get back over
that fence.
Even if you work with the same cattle
or other livestock daily, like my now
deceased friend did, always take
precautions and expect the unexpected
to happen.
Be safe, not sorry!

SIDS, or crib death,
is the sudden,
unexplained death of
an infant younger
than one year old. It is
the leading cause of
death in children
between one month
and one year of age.
Health care providers don't know what
exactly causes SIDS, but they do know
certain things can help reduce the risk of
SIDS:
Always place babies on their backs to
sleep, for naps and at night Babies who
sleep on their backs are less likely to die of
SIDS than babies who sleep on their stomachs
or sides. If they are placed on their stomachs,
like for a nap, they are at very high risk for
SIDS. So it is important for babies to sleep
on their backs every time, for naps and at
night.
Place your baby on a firm sleep surface -
Never place a baby to sleep on a pillow, quilt,
sheepskin, or other soft surface.
Keep soft objects, toys, and loose bedding
out of your baby's sleep area Don't use
pillows, blankets, quilts, sheepskins, or
pillow-like bumpers in your baby's sleep area.
Keep all items away from the baby's face.
Avoid letting your baby overheat during
sleep Dress your baby in light sleep clothing
and keep the room at a temperature that is
comfortable for an adult.
Think about using a clean, dry pacifier
when placing your baby down to sleep, but
don't force the baby to take it. (If you're
breastfeeding, wait until your child is 1 month
old, or is used to breastfeeding before using a
pacifier.)
Do not allow smoking around your baby -
Don't smoke before or after the birth of your
baby, and don't let others smoke around your
baby
Breastfeeding-breastfeeding has been
shown to be good for babies by building their
immunity against illness and infections, in
addition to other benefits.

and Robert Bridges,

ROBERT BRIDGES
Editor


OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat


The Democrat's Top 5

As part of our ongoing commitment to the community, we've
singled out five issues we think deserve special attention -
yours and ours both. These aren't the only topics we plan to
tackle during the coming year, but they're surely among the
most significant.
Each of these issues will be addressed throughout 2010 in our
news columns and in Our View. Meanwhile, we value your
view as well. Let us know what you think about these and oth-
er topics, through a submission to Rant and Rave, a Letter to
the Editor, or in our online Facebook forum.

1. Legalized liquor
We've already made clear our feelings on this one. Legaliz-
ing the sale of liquor in Suwannee County won't solve all our
problems, but would remove at least one impediment to intelli-
gent, long-term growth.
It was believed this measure might appear on the ballot in
2010. However, time is running out. Florida law requires the
wet/dry question appear on the ballot alone, which means a ref-
erendum would likely have to be held in the spring. In other
words, if it doesn't happen soon, it may not happen at all in 2010.

2. Consolidation of city and county fire services
This one's been tackled many times before, and each failed
attempt seems to stir more emotion than the last. Nonetheless,
it's too important to let lie especially during the worst reces-
sion in decades.
A full-blown merger of Suwannee County Fire/Rescue and
the Live Oak Fire Department would reduce administrative
costs and likely save us all a considerable sum.
All options should be on the table, however, including more
modest proposals. Resurrecting the 2003 plan that stationed
SCFR paramedics at LOFD might be a place to start. That
would put the city on equal footing with the county as far as
emergency medical coverage is concerned.
In talks with the Democrat, SCFR Chief Charlie Conner and
LOFD Chief Chad Croft each agreed that some kind of joint
venture might well benefit both departments as well as the
citizens they serve. We have great respect for both these agen-
cies, and can't help but think there's a win-win situation hidden
away here somewhere.

3. Downtown revitalization
Another topic that's been addressed repeatedly, with limited
success. This time the folks behind it are determined to get re-
sults. We fully support the efforts of the Downtown Partnership
to develop realistic, long-term strategies for enhancing and pre-
serving the charm of historic Live Oak.

4. Perimeter Road project
Otherwise known as the Bypass Road. We don't like that
name because it suggests Live Oak is something to avoid.
The Perimeter Road will link US 129 near Lowe's to US 90
East near CR 49, opening a major new corridor for growth.
The county commission and city council are to be commend-
ed for having doggedly pursued the plan to this point. Stick
with it, gentlemen.

5. Better fire protection for Dowling Park
This one might have been lumped in with No. 2, but it's too
important not to be addressed on its own. Dowling Park's inde-
pendent volunteer unit (which may soon come under control of
the county) is well run. Still, it's not enough. In a medical emer-
gency, it can take first responders 20 minutes to reach a patient,
notes county Fire Chief Charlie Conner. Considering the special
needs of many Dowling Park residents, particularly those at the
Advent Christian Village, that's way too long. The Dowling Park
VFD needs a paid station to supplement the good work of the
volunteers. Money's tight, but we see this one as critical.


BIBLE VERSE
"If anyone says, 'I love God,' yet hates his
brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not
love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love
God, whom he has not seen. And he has given
us this command: Whoever loves God must
also love his brother."- 1 John 4:20-21

Before the self righteous hypocrites get start-
ed, I am not advocating, excusing or defending
substance abuse. The good book states the fruits
and herbs are here for man to use, serve the
greiving wine, let the poor man enjoy his wine,
etc. It cautions against excess. The point is the
use of various intoxicants is as old as human
history. The percentage of people attending

one has had time by
now to break most of
those resolutions

The past year has

been hard on many
folks in our community and the nation. Many
are struggling to just get by. Hopefully brighter
and more prosperous times are ahead. With the
many improvements being made, the city is in a
position to provide services to both residential
and commercial development. We will continue
our tireless efforts to attract new business and
the jobs they bring.
Christmas decorations throughout the city are
slowly coming down. I think most people dread
taking them down more than putting them up.


QUESTION OF

THE WEEK

Did the Suwannee County
School Board do the right thing
by signing up to participate in
the federal Race to the Top
grant program?


Rave

events at our #1 source of tourist revenue who
get arrested is fairly small. Some folks are stu-
pid and would get busted wherever they are or
came from. Our sheriff wisely puts more effort
into busting local ongoing drug operations in
our county. This is what is really important, not
a few tourists. Many of these folks come from
other places where simple poss. is not even a
crime, no excuse, simply the truth. When you
see the elderly & disabled arrested for selling
gov't. funded perscriptions, this is a social ill-
ness. Sometimes these people simply need the
money to survive. Not condoning it, stating a
fact. Suwannee county is not a mecca for drug
dealers!! Even when they get caught, they are
still leaving money in our local economy. Once
again our alleged "moral superiority" is simply
a by product of the cattle industry

I am a Suwannee County resident working
in Lake City (don't most of us?), at one of the
hospitals in town. Our hospital recently had a
big flat-screen TV installed in the cafeteria.
My problem is that they have chosen Fox
News (Faux News) as the default channel.
Firstly, I don't think a news channel is the best
choice for our customers to have to watch
while they are in our lunchroom. They are al-

VIAVYORS be time to put them up
pO again. These years are
Ri N ElI really passing by quick-

that the older one gets,
the quicker the time
passes. It sure seems
that way. I again thank
everyone in our city and
NOBLES Suwannee County com-
munity for your efforts
in brightening our holidays. Things have never
looked better.
Several years back, I named Live Oak "the
Caring Community." You certainly lived up to
that name this Christmas. The Live Oak Fire De-

Sparky's Kids. Many other groups, organizations
and individuals in our community made it possi-
ble for many hundreds more to have a brighter

Letter to the Editor


To the Editor:

The "official story" of 9/11 is a lie. To use the
current jargon/doublespeak and call it an "un-
truth" or state that the facts were misspokenn"
(via the obviously fictitious 911 Commission
(read 'omission') Report would be an unaccept-
able dishonor and insult to the first responders,
survivors and the victims relationships. The ab-
solute horror most of us felt during the first few
days, weeks and moths kept our minds suscep-
tible to the incessant propaganda being shouted
through the main stream media. When it was all
over, many of us took a second and third look.
With little research and common sense, it was
easy to see we were being fed a crock of fertil-
izer as high as the towers. Our government
and/or shadow factions within the same have
deceived us all. It's not the first time. Never for-
get the JFK and MLK assassinations ... to men-
tion a couple of instances. Many do not realize
these conspiracies were proved ... officially ...
years too late to have mattered to most.
How many of us are aware of the London
bombings on 7/07/2005 that have similarities to
9/11 so statistically improbable as to be ludi-


crous and realistically impossible under Eng-
land's own "official story?"
If you continue to insult your own intelli-
gence by believing the "official fairy tale of
9/11," please go to some trusted sites such as
ae911truth.org or read Dr. David Ray Griffin's
books. With an open mind, freed from the initial
terror of the government's horrendous whopper,
simple perception may overcome the mass hyp-
nosis to which we have all have been and still
are subjected. If you continue to accept the offi-
cial madness, you may fall under the category
of those spoken of in an old Chinese proverb ..."
You cannot awaken a person pretending to be
asleep."
Please, leave behind the government's con-
spiracy theory and join those of us seeking the
truth of what happened on that fateful day. Hon-
or yourselves, the fallen, the innocent and the
tortured by demanding a new and independent
investigation of 9/11/2001.
It's not too late, but it soon may be.

lic debate, this writer may be reached at ignot-

O'BRIEN AND OUR NEIGHBORS


Bits & Pieces from south


Suwannee County


In 1989, when we
fi rst moved to
O'Brien, my husband
promised me a
"White Christmas" for
our first year 'up
north.' And on
Christmas morning
he woke me up and
told me to look out
the bedroom window.
There on the ground
was an honest-to-
good ness layer of
snow, a real white
Christmas. In 1990
we had a light
dusting of snow and
a lot of icy roads, but
I'll always remember
our first year up here
and his promise
coming true.


By Ana Smith
BRRRRRRRRR!!!!! And
that's putting it mildly! I've
mentioned to several people
lately that way, way back in
high school I learned that we get
an extreme change in the weath-
er every 20 years. Now, that
was a long time ago for me, and
at that time I lived just outside
Boston, but over the years I've
found that to be true. In 1989,
when we first moved to O'Brien,
my husband promised me a
"White Christmas" for our first
year "up north." And on Christ-
mas morning he woke me up
and told me to look out the bed-
room window. There on the
ground was an honest-to-good-
ness layer of snow, a real white
Christmas. In 1990 we had a
light dusting of snow and a lot
of icy roads, but I'll always re-
member our first year up here
and his promise coming true.
When the weather stations
said we could possibly have
snow last weekend I was re-
minded that it's been 20 years,
but we didn't get the snow. At
least, not at the time I'm writing
this column. Looks like what I


learned in geography so long
ago had stuck with me. And
cold as it was, all our animals
came through the freezing tem-
peratures really well, and con-
sidering what so many of my
family and friends north of the
Mason-Dixon line had to con-
tend with, once again I'm so
glad I'm where I am. I did for-
get to cover my outdoor plants
and lost several to the frost, but
I also remembered that as long
as the roots were well estab-
lished in the ground and I left
them undisturbed, chances are I
could prune them all back when
the weather starts to warm up
and the roots will put out new
growth. I'm praying that is true!
On behalf of all those who
worked with "Toys For Kids"
here in the Branford area, many
heartfelt thanks to all who dug
down deep and made it possible
to provide a really nice Christ-
mas for those who were in need.
But even with the outpouring of
your generosity there were a
few families whose situations
were made known at the last

so grateful for any and all
help.
This Saturday is the
monthly Brotherhood
breakfast in the fellowship
hall at O'Brien Baptist
Church. This is a mar-
velous opportunity for the
men in our community to
start the new year off with
a group of Christian men
who love the Lord and
continue to spread His
word and do His work.
You don't have to be a
member of OBC to come
and enjoy the fellowship
of this group of men. Just
be there at 8 a.m., bring
your male family mem-
bers, friends and neigh-
bors, enjoy a great break-
fast, and join in worship-
ing Our Lord.
For quite a while I have
been helping a friend here
in the O'Brien area by fos-
tering cats and kittens that
have been rescued. We
have quite a few that are
now ready for good
homes. If you are looking
for a feline to add to your
family, please give us a
call and let us know what
you are looking for. We
have some posters up in
the S&S in O'Brien, in the
O'Brien Feed Depot, and a
couple of businesses in
Branford. I'll be happy to
answer your questions,
and I hope you'll think se-
riously about adopting one
of our animals and giving
it the home it deserves.
Please call me at 364-5584
after noon and before 6
p.m. if you would like to
help us and our purring
friends.

that underprivileged was
overused. I was disadvan-

Food for Thought

Everything Is Going To Be Ok!
All of us have our crosses to bear. Many are
going through difficult time right now. Some have
lost their job, their health and may even have family
struggles. Where do we turn for help and hope?
Listen, everything is going to be ok because --
1) Jesus Died On The Cross For Our Sins: Jesus
came to provide salvation from our sins. He made
the payment we owed [I Jn. 2:2; 4:9-10]. His blood
covers our sin [Acts 2:38; 22:16]. He will continue
to cleanse us while we walk in the light [I Jn. 1:7].
2) Jesus Rose From The Grave: Jesus was raised
to life for our justification [Rom. 4:25]. He has the
victory over death and the devil [Heb. 2:14]. His
resurrection guarantees our resurrection when He
returns [I Cor. 15]. Jesus' death was not the final
word!
3) Jesus Is Preparing A Place For His Faithful
Children: The last week of Jesus' life before the
cross He made a promise to prepare a place for us
[Jn. 14:1-3]. Jesus said, He was the WAY, the
TRUTH and the LIFE and that He is the ONLY way
to the Father! Regardless of what we go through in
this life, there is something far better in the future!

Religion policy drafted

minority religious views
within the school district.
The Checketts, who are
both Wiccans, attended the
Tuesday workshop and
showed their approval of
the district's attempt to be
inclusive of all religious
views.
However, John Checkett
noted one important ele-
ment that was left out of the
proposed religious policy.
"This written policy only
addresses prayer before
school board meetings, but
doesn't address practices
and treatment at the
schools," he said.
Board attorney Andy
Decker said, "A second pol-
icy will be written to ad-
dress the matter of religious
practices within the
schools."
The policy presented at
Tuesday's workshop was
written in large part with the
help of assistant state attor-
ney KrisAnne Hall, former-
ly of the Christian Law As-
sociation.
"The policy written here
is a constitutionally sound
policy that many districts
throughout the country have
already implemented within
their districts," Hall said.
"This policy comes in place
to afford the opportunity,
not to grant a right."
The document with the
heading "Policy Regarding
Student Led Opening
Pledge Before Meetings of
the Suwannee County
School Board" was packed
with constitutional refer-
ences throughout. Cases
mentioned included Holy
Trinity Church v. United
States, which holds that
"the American people have
a long followed custom of
opening sessions of all de-
liberative bodies and most
conventions with prayer,"
and the case of Marsh v.
Chambers, in which the
Supreme Court determined

"I went to the council
and recommended
$200,000 be designated as
a credit to gas bills to our
residential customers," said
Nobles. The other
$100,000 was spent on op-
erations and maintenance
of the gas department.
The credit was set to be
applied to the November
through Feb. 2010 bills.
However, Nobles said be-
cause of the unusually
warm temperatures during
those months he was grant-
ed permission by the city


that "the content of such
prayer is not of concern to
judges where ... there is no
indication that the prayer
opportunity has been ex-
ploited to proselytize or ad-
vance any one, or to dispar-
age any other faith or be-
lief."
Board attorney Andy
Decker presented the docu-
ment to board members for
preliminary review Tues-
day.
"The purpose of this poli-
cy would be to allow any-
one, any person, group,

son of any different persua-

opportunity to come for-
ward and solemnize the
opening of board meet-
ings," Decker said. "It
would need to be a neutral
and inclusive way to make
sure that everyone is being
heard and given that oppor-
tunity."
Board member Julie Ul-
mer asked whether the poli-
cy should include al-
lowances to students from
all eight of the district's
schools, as opposed to just
Suwannee High and Bran-
ford High.
Board members also dis-
cussed how to formulate a
list, either alphabetically by
club, organization or indi-
vidual, for allowances and
participation at the opening
of school board meetings.
"If you don't make it
manageable," attorney Hall
said, "then it comes to no
effect."
School board members
only spent a short time dis-
cussing the religious policy
draft, but said the matter
would be addressed more
extensively at a later work-
shop. Once a policy is writ-
ten it would have to go
through a period of public
comment, after which a fi-
nal policy would be written,

while James Cooper and
J.M. Holtzclaw dissented.
"People will say, well
you had $1 million offered
to you and you didn't want
it, but what they don't real-
ize is all the attachments
that come along with this
thing," said Cooper Tues-
day.
All board members dis-
played their unease at sign-
ing the program's memo-
randum of understanding
(MOU), citing the lan-
guage of the document as
the biggest hurdle.
A clause requiring par-
ticipating districts "to im-
plement all elements of the
MOU" had most board
members scratching their
heads. They peppered
Cheryl Mae Brinson, the
district's grant writer, and
board attorney Andy Deck-
er with questions about the
implications of the agree-
ment.
"This will be a monu-
mental task," said board


chair Jerry Taylor. "If we
sign, are we going to be pe-
nalized for any inability to
fulfill all the ramifications
of this plan?" he asked.
Brinson responded: "It is
my understanding from
speaking with (the Depart-
ment of Education) and
from the language of the
MOU that there is no harm
in sending in our MOU,
and there will be no sanc-
tion if we do not follow
through."
The MOU is simply the
district's signed agreement
to go forward with the re-
quirements and objectives
set forth under the Race to
the Top, which places a
large emphasis on teacher
performance and evalua-
tion, aligning instructor
merit pay with student
achievement. The district,
as well as the state, are
each responsible for com-
piling a scope of work for
how each intends to meet
the criteria set forth under
the program.
"The more MOUs sub-


mitted with the state's ap-
plication, the more likely
the state will be approved
into this grant," Brinson re-
iterated.
The United Teachers of
Suwannee County declined
to sign the MOU, and
board members clearly
were hesitant, but may
have felt compelled to sign
simply to keep the state,
and the district, in the run-
ning for grant funds.
Superintendent Jerry
Scarborough reaffirmed his
stance to board members
Tuesday, asking them to
"stay in the game."
Although three of the
five board members stood
in favor of the initiative,
comments made by even
those who voted yes re-
vealed hesitancy.
"Over and over, I have
seen that anytime the gov-
ernment tries to circumvent
local control, it has had an
adverse affect and usually
goes wrong," said Taylor.
Board attorney Decker
said, "no union is going to


submit to this."
He likened the Race to
the Top to "the Star pro-
gram on steroids," saying
that it is likely to "undergo
a brutal impasse to get
unions to join."
The Star program was a
short-lived attempt to in-
troduce merit pay for
teachers in Suwannee
County.
The board placed its sig-
nature on the MOU only
with the inclusion of a hold
harmless clause, which
states, in part, that the dis-
trict shall be without fault
if it is unable to implement
any of the mandatory terms
of the MOU despite a good
faith effort to do so. Mem-
bers were also relieved to
get Decker's go-ahead on
the document.
"This board is reticent to
capitulate to pressure from
on high, but we're trying to
keep the doorway open as
long as possible," Taylor
said. "We don't want to
turn our back on potential
funding for our district."

on," said Andy Hooper.
The $6.8 million project
began in mid-July.
"This is a massive under-
taking," said City Adminis-
trator Bob Farley.
Crews use state of the art
technology to peer into the
vast labyrinth of pipes un-
der city streets. Cameras,
set on the end of tube-like
machines, snake their way
into the pipes, so the crew
can determine what kind of
damage, if any, there is and
then determine what ac-
tions to take. The video
stream from the camera is
sent real time, via cables, to
a crew member that con-
trols the movement of the
camera. The video stream
is also recorded to keep on
file at city hall. Hooper
said by using the camera it


makes it less burdensome
on the city and its people
by shutting down only
parts of streets at a time. As
part of the presentation,
Hooper showed pictures of
some of the older pipes, the
clay pipes that were in-
stalled by Thomas Dowling
some 100 years ago. Some
of the pipes showed severe
damage from cracking and
roots. Some had simply be-
gun to collapse or clog.
One section of pipe was
completely missing. The
most extreme case found so
far was a six foot deep,
three foot wide hole under
a portion of Duval Street,
and "that explains why this
work needed being done,"
Hooper said by phone
Wednesday.
Hooper said to fully re-
habilitate the entire city's
sewer system would re-

quire more funds than are
currently available. But for
now, city officials are go-
ing to let WRScompass
work until the federal stim-
ulus funds run out. Hooper
said of the $6.8 million,
just over $4 million has
been expended since Dec.
31. He said funds should
run out by late March or
early April. City officials
hope more stimulus funds
will trickle down by then
so work can resume. How-
ever, Hooper said the
method of using the camera
and other factors, such as
lining pipes with a resin
type compound which,


when set, acts as a new
pipe, rather than digging up
and replacing pipes has led
to savings. Hooper said the
savings means more work
can be performed. He said
the focus so far is on point
repairs and laterals.
"After all repairs are
done it will not be in pris-
tine condition, but it will be
safe," said Hooper.
Hooper commented that
nine local folks have been
employed to help with the
project.

Web site monitors water



supply in wake of PCS spill


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.Iivingston@gaflnews.com

JASPER The state Department of Environmental
Protection has created a new Web site to provide up-to-
date information on its ongoing sampling and monitoring
of the local water supply after 84 million gallons of
contaminated water was released in a spill at PCS in
White Springs.
This comes after discovery of a sinkhole inside a
phosphogypsum stack system at PCS's Swift Creek
Chemical Complex on Dec. 10. The Swift Creek
Chemical Complex is located just east of US 41, about 10
miles northwest of White Springs. The stack system
stores process wastewater and gypsum resulting from
PCS' phosphate fertilizer manufacturing operations at this
site, according to a DEP press release.
"Based on site inspections and ongoing collection of
monitoring data, it appears that PCS's production wells
are containing the process water on site and not
contaminating the aquifer offsite or nearby potable
drinking water wells," according to a DEP press release.
"In an abundance of caution DEP has continued its
monitoring of the process wells, local private wells and
the waters of the Suwannee River."
The gypsum stack in which the sinkhole formed is
about 140 to 150 feet above ground level, according to
DEP spokeswoman Dee Ann Miller. The sinkhole was
about 40 to 50 feet in diameter with a depth of at least
100 feet below surface level, said Miller. The deepest
production wells are 750-800 feet deep.
"Aerial surveys and exploratory drilling are being
conducted to gather information about the depth and
geometry of the subsurface opening which will allow
more precise measurement and guidance in grouting the
sinkhole," Miller said.
Furthermore, Miller said no processed water was
released before PCS was able to turn on its wells.




1-year-old among


the injured in crash


"PCS already had wells in operation at the time of the
formation, additional wells were put into operation within
the hour to make sure they were doing everything they
could do to capture the release," said Miller.
Miller confirmed that some broken chunks of gypsum
did fall into the sinkhole. Miller also said there is not a
synthetic liner beneath the gypsum stack, but rather a
natural clay barrier below the stack area.
Concerned citizens can now view the new Web page,
which provides up-to-date information on DEP's ongoing
sampling and monitoring:
http://www.dep.state.fl.us/secretary/pcs_sinkhole.htm
"This new webpage allows us to make the information
about these efforts readily available to the public," said
Deputy Secretary for Regulatory Programs, Mimi Drew
in a press release. "We want the public to have real-time
information and data about our efforts."
Residents are encouraged to contact DEP directly with
questions and concerns at 850-488-8217. Citizens who
may be concerned about their drinking water supply can
contact the Hamilton County Health Department at 386-
792-1414.


Jasper native


killed in crash
By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

JASPER A long-time Jasper resident was killed in
a motorcycle accident this morning in Lake City.
John Russel Fry, 47, was eastbound on SW Baya
Drive on his 2006 Harley-Davidson at 6:55 a.m. when
a westbound Jeep SUV driven by Christopher Robert
Davis, 38, attempted a left turn onto McFarlane
Avenue and entered the path of Fry's motorcycle,
according to a Florida Highway Patrol press release.
Fry swerved right to avoid the collision but Davis'
jeep struck the front left of Fry's motorcycle, said FHP.
After the impact, Davis, a Lake City resident, struck
a raised concrete curb. Fry, also of Lake City, was
ejected from his motorcycle onto the grassy shoulder
of the roadway, reports show.
"He was quite an individual," Benji Fry of Hamilton
County said of his brother Wednesday. "He just liked
riding his motorcycle."
Fry and Benji worked for Corbett's Mobile Homes
in Lake City.
Benji said his brother was on his way to work when
the accident occurred.
An investigation into the crash is pending, said FHP.


Icy temperatures persisted
for nearly two weeks in the
Suwannee River Valley, as
these photos show.

Old Salt Road in a 1997
Ford two-door while pas-
senger Sarah Elliott, 27,
held 1-year-old Nathaniel
Elliot on her lap, accord-
ing to Florida Highway
Patrol reports.
Ducksworth failed to
yield when turning left
onto CR 300, said FHP,
and collided with the left
front of a Hyundai 4-door
driven by Heidi Hendrick,
16.

Upon impact,
Ducksworth's vehicle
spun 180 degrees before
coming to a rest on the
west shoulder of CR 300
while Hendrick's car ro-
tated counter clockwise
and stopped in the inter-
section of CR-300 and
SW Old Salt Road.
All involved were
rushed to Shands UF with
serious injuries.
Ducksworth was
charged with failure to
yield right of way, wear a
seat belt and use child re-
straint, FHP said. Reports
show Hendrick was
charged with failure to
wear a seat belt.
The occupants of the
Ducksworth vehicle were
all listed in good condi-
tion at Shands UF
Wednesday. Hendrick was
no longer listed as a pa-
tient there.

ready here visiting sick friends and fami-

If the hospital feels that news is the best
choice, at least they should tune the TV to
a reputable, non-biased, nuetral station,
one that presents NEWS, not OPINION.
Better that the TV is tuned to an informa-

In response to the "want to be" mayor of
Live Oak in the edition of Friday, January
8. Does he want to take these junkets to
Atlanta, Jacksonville or wherever at the
city's expense to seek new business. In
Nov. 2009 the "want to be" mayor fought
against a non-pollution business, a veteri-
narian hospital to come to Live Oak. This
business would have created jobs. Some
would have been after school for kids to
work after school. It so happens this busi-
ness was to be located in his neighbor-
hood. There are at least eight businesses on
this street, but the "want to be" mayor
fought the veterinarian clinic to come to
Live Oak. It wouldn't be suitable for this
area. Why "want to be" mayor, there are at
least eight businesses on this street which
includes bars, vacant buildings, pet shops.
Citizens of Live Oak I don't think that this
"want to be" mayor has the experience or
personality to hold this position. Citizens of
Live Oak does this "want to be mayor
speak with a forked tongue? Thank you.
SME
I am so happy someone is running for
Mayor. Perhaps a new mayor can remem-
ber when he sends a city truck out to the
chicken plant to help a local contractor
against city policy. I hope our new mayor
doesn't have to drive the city's SUV to Tal-

Hi, I have a question for the City Fathers.
Why, if we can't afford our own public
works department, do we farm it out to
somebody who makes the profit? So if
they're making a profit then it is actually
costing the city more than if they were run-
ning it themselves. First, have you looked
at the city street and curbs and sidewalks,
they are in such a poor state of repair that
you can trip and fall over most curbs in the
city. It just seems to me that it is just outra-
geous that things aren't taken better care of.
And by the way, I was beside a city truck
the other day with bald tires on it so if the
public works department is being efficient-
ly run, why are we running around on bald
unsafe tires? Maybe someone can answer
that, give it a shot. Bye.

Christmas. Residents and businesses
opened their hearts and pocketbooks so
that those that might not otherwise
have received gifts were given gifts.
May each be blessed for your caring
and giving.
Not only is the Live Oak Fire De-
partment involved in many activities
that benefit those in the community
such as Sparky's Kids and Muscular
Dystrophy but believe it or not, they
do things related to fire prevention and
fire fighting. In 2008 the department
responded to 495 calls for assistance.
In '09, this number was over 500.
They performed 1,476 training hours
this past year along with hundreds of
other hours in equipment inspection,
fire hydrant testing and calls for assis-
tance from other city departments
along with hundreds of hours in many
other categories. One that is important
to the well being of our citizens is the
EMT training. Our seven certified
EMTs performed 224 hours of training
to maintain their certification. What
does all this mean to you? The Live
Oak Fire Department is in the upper
10 percent of all the departments in the
nation in reference to our ISO (Insur-
ance Service Office) rating. The
LOFD's ISO rating is 93 percent better
than all the fire departments in the na-
tion. We currently have an ISO rating
of 4. This rating saves residents
$240,000 and businesses $90,000 in
insurance premiums annually. With
the purchase of the new truck and wa-
ter system upgrade, we anticipate the
rating to drop to a 3 and offer addi-
tional savings on insurance savings.
The department is also fiscally respon-
sible. The Department under spent
their fire budget by $109,000 last year.
The Live Oak Police Department re-
cently had their annual awards pro-
gram. Many of the officers received
recognition for outstanding service to
the department and our community.
Derek Slaughter was selected as the
Officer of the Year. Congratulations to
all of the officers that received special
recognition and awards. We have an
excellent police department. We have
not had an officer resign or transfer
from the PD to another agency for sev-
eral years. This is a good indicator that
things are well with your police de-
partment. Thanks to all staff and per-
sonnel for your dedicated service.

your bones also. those di-
als on the gas meters have
been spinning like a Las
Vegas slot machine. As I
have already relayed to
you, the city postponed the
gas rebate program due to
the unusually warm weath-
er. All residential customers can ex-
pect to receive a credit on your Febru-
ary bill for gas. Hopefully this will
provide some relief for the high gas
bill you will probably receive. I again
recognize the council for supporting
my recommendation for this gas cred-
it program. There has probably never
been a greater time of need than now
to provide this relief. Many are
stretched financially due to the unusu-
ally cold month. Residential gas users
will get a double shot of relief on your
next bill. The program was delayed
two months because of the unusually
warm temperatures and low gas usage.
I proposed to the Council that we dou-
ble up on your February bill. This will
offer substantial relief from the unusu-
ally high bills you will receive in Feb-
ruary.
The new sewer plant project is pro-
gressing on schedule. I call it the hid-
den treasure. It's on Lime Avenue at
the site of the sewer facility we put on
line several years ago. It's one of those
out of sight, out of mind things. It is
one of the most important projects go-
ing on in the city. As I have relayed to
you in the past, due to the coming of
the prison, the city's sewer capacity
was taken up. This is not a bad thing.
Along with the prison will come up-
wards of 800 new jobs to the county
and region. This called for the con-
struction of the new plant at a cost of $
11,819,189. This includes the plant
and the reuse line going to the prison.
Impact fees and revenue from the
prison will pay for much of the cost of
the new plant over the next 20 years.
Again, this "hidden treasure" will car-
ry us many years into the future. With
this project, the sewer rehab, reuse line
and water tank and system, the city of
Live Oak has postured itself to handle
future growth. The availability of city
services will not hinder any projects
that may come our way. The city will
be able toserve anyone in need of our
services.
OMI crews will not pick up house-
hold garbage on Monday, Jan. 18 due
to the Martin Luther King holiday.
Monday's collection will take place on
Tuesday along with Tuesday's regular
pickup. Collections for the rest of the
week will be as usual.
I continue to hear over and over that
people involved in traffic accidents
were not wearing their seat belts.
Many lost their lives or suffered seri-
ous injury. Come on folks. Wear those
seat belts.

Alternate


universes

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
While reading -
Stephen
Hawking's "God
Created the /
Integers" I was not
the least bit
surprised to find out other
people knew about alternate
universes. They have always
existed in sports. As I write I
am sure Tiger Woods is
looking for one.
Ernie Banks, a tremendous
baseball player and good guy,
lived in an alternate universe.
Every year he predicted the
Chicago Cubs would win the
pennant. He stood a better
chance of discovering a new
planet. Terrell Owens lives in
an alternate universe as well.
Owens is, however, the only
one in his universe.
Lane Kiffin and many other
college coaches live in an
alternate universe called
MONEY. They go wherever
there is the most of it. Some
go from U.S.C. to Oakland to
Tennessee to end up right
back where they started.
Some leave Louisville go to
Atlanta and end up in
Arkansas. Some leave Duke
go to Florida, leave Florida go
to Washington D.C and end
up in South Carolina. Guys
like Eddie Robinson and
Bobby Bowden lived in an
alternate universe as well but
there's revolved around
loyalty. This universe is
spotted with the regularity of
Halley's Comet.
The most recent alternate
universe to be viewed is the
one where Mark McGwire
lives. He took performance-
enhancing drugs through out
his Major League career but
they did not enhance his
performance. These drugs
simply kept him healthy and
he would have broken a

places 3rd

at Clay
By Luke R. .*,. I

The Suwannee Bulldogs
had a good showing at the
Clay tournament in Green-
cove Springs last Friday and
Saturday. The 'Dogs placed
third out of 27 teams behind
first place Clay and second
place District 2A Ridgeview.
Travis Laxton placed
first at 112 pounds; John
Boatright, second place at
140 pounds and Jamie Al-
varado at heavyweight. Joe
McMillan placed third at
215 pounds after losing a
controversial match earlier
in the tournament. Aaron
Fountain placed third at
119 pounds and Logan Reg-
ister placed third at 160
pounds. Placing fifth for
Suwannee was Jacob Wain-
wright at 103 pounds and
Josh Key at 125 pounds.
The rest of the team won
some good matches but fell
short of making it to the
medal rounds. Suwannee
will be holding the Billy
Saylor tournament this
weekend beginning today.

The girls traveled to
Mayo Jan. 7, walking away

Wood got the first score on
the board with a penalty
kick within the first five
minutes of the game. Lind-

in for the second goal. The
first three minutes of the
second half brought a nice
score from a comer kick by
Kelsey Curls that was
headed in by Chambliss.
Natalie Pecina made an
assist to Jessie TenBroeck
who was able to get the
next score. Amber Mor-
gan then was given a direct
kick which she was able to
bypass the Mayo team for
the fifth goal of the night.
The Morgan sisters, Am-

There is a caveat here,

' Athletes of God

The great choreographer Martha
Graham said, "I believe that we learn
by practice. Whether it means to learn
to dance by practicing dancing or to
learn to live by practicing living, the
principles are the same. In each, it is
the performance of a dedicated precise
set of acts, physical or intellectual,
from which comes shape of
achievement, a sense of one's being, a
satisfaction of spirit. One becomes, in
some area, an athlete of God."
(Martha Graham, This I Believe,
National Public Radio) Two things are
particularly noteworthy about this
statement. One is the dedication and
discipline necessary to bring about significant achievement, whether in
art, or sport, or life. The second thing worth noting is how this
achievement will define one's being and lead to a satisfaction of spirit.
There is no denying the incredible satisfaction that comes with
achievement, and especially virtuosity. Most of us will never know the
satisfaction of being a prima ballerina or a professional athlete, but
that doesn't mean we can't reach a level of excellence appropriate to
our own capabilities. And it's not just about achieving excellence in
some artistic or athletic endeavor. It's about achieving excellence in
life, as a good human being. We should ask God each and every day to
help us in the practice of life and strive to become an athlete of God.


I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race,
I have kept the faith.

R.S.V. 2 Timothy 4:7

JV Basketball review


JV 'Dogs win rematch

The Suwannee High School JV boys basketball team
traveled to Williston on Jan. 5 to play their second
game against the Runnin' Red Devils, the only team to
beat Suwannee this season. Suwannee walked away
with the win, 79-68.
The score at the end of the first quarter was 17-9 in
favor of the 'Dogs. The lead then disappeared with
Williston leading at the half, 31-34. Williston was
missing one of their key play-
ers, but still hustled and had one
very accurate 3-pt sniper that
kept them ahead for most of the
third and fourth quarters. How-
ever, the Bulldog offense pulled
away in the last three minutes
of the game with teamwork that
included drives by Jimmie Tay-
lor, inside play from Tony
Frierson and a timely 3-pt shot
made by Dontavius Hampton.
Taylor led the team in scoring
with 25 points, seven rebounds
and three assists. Frierson
added 15 points and eight re-
bounds, shooting 80 percent
from the field and 100 percent
from the free throw line (7/7).
Jarvis George added 12 points
and eight rebounds and Marcus
Lane scored 11 points, three re-
bounds and two assists. Guard
AJ Robinson scored nine
points, two rebounds and one
assist. Other scorers were Don-
tavius Hampton, with five and
DeAngelo Ross with two.
Shooting percentages were
above average from 2-pt range,
52 percent and the free throw
line, 69 percent. Sixteen
turnovers and 14 unfouled The Suwannee High
missed layups kept the game
close, however.

Suwannee JV takes
Newberry 50-39

On Jan. 7 Suwannee played
the Newberry Panthers for the ,
first time and came home with a
win of 50-39. Suwannee seemed
lethargic as the team shooting
percentage was only 19 percent
overall (15/76), with 18 un-
fouled missed layups by the end
of the night. The 'Dogs are anx-
ious to redeem themselves when _
the Panthers come to Live Oak
for a rematch Jan. 26. Player
statistics: (Pts, Rbs, Ast) Taylor
(16-12-4), Frierson (8-10-1),
George (9-8-1), Hampton (8-0-
1), AJ Robinson (4-1-0), Lane

Robinson (1-3-0). The Suwannee JV ba


Suwannee pounds Mayo

The JV boys basketball team beat Mayo 58-19 Jan.
11, to advance their record to 12-1. Playing time and
scoring was distributed evenly among all players as
the Bulldogs easily defeated the Hornets. A running
clock was in effect during the third quarter, which end-
ed with Suwannee ahead 56-14. Player statistics: (Pts,
Rbs, Ast, Stl) Dontavius Hampton (8-1-3-3), AJ
Robinson (8-1-0-1), Marcus Lane (8-2-2), Jimmie


Taylor (7-6-2), Alex Robinson (6-1-1), Jarvis
George (6-5-1), Taiwan Williams (6-2-1), Jeremiah
Ross (5-2-2), Tony Frierson (4-4-0-1), Austin Collins
(0-4-0). Suwannee will return for three home games in
a row. This will be the last chance for fans to see the
JV boys play at home this year, as the last four games
of the season will be on the road. Come see the Bull-
dogs play Perry Jan. 22, Newberry Jan. 26 and Ft.
White Jan. 29. Go 'Dogs!

Lake City teen wins


state coon hunt title


Submitted

A Lake City teenager qualified for the Na-
tional UKC youth hunt in Indiana after plac-
ing first in the 2009 (Florida) State Youth
Coon and Bench Show recently.
Landon Moates, accompanied by his PaPa
Wayde Moates, received a state trophy, a
first place trophy and a night light for out-
performing several others. Moates used one
of Charlie Parnell's dogs to perform his task.
Young men as far away as Mobile, Ala.
participated in the event on a rain soaked
Dec. 12 in Providence. The kids showed


their dogs in the night hunt of the program.
The weather kept a lot of hunters from show-
ing up but a coon treeing contest was held
and everyone enjoyed grilled hamburgers
and hot dogs.
A young lady was also on hand to show
the boys how to win on the UKC Bench
show. Everyone had a really good time.
Everyone at the state and local level want to
thank the North Florida Coon Hunters Club
for putting this event on and ask all hunters
to take a kid hunting and fishing. Keep our
outdoors open for what God intended. Until
next time keep the hounds in the woods.

I am intrigued by tradi-
tions and the histories be-
hind them. By definition a
tradition is "an inherited,
established or customary
pattern of thought, action
or behavior; the handing
down of information, be-
liefs and customs by word
of mouth or by example H
from one generation to
another without written M
instructions."
Some traditions that are By
familiar are blowing out
candles on your birthday, eat-
ing turkey on Thanksgiving,
and receiving a watch at retire-
ment. Some are cultural, like
cutting off a guy's shirttail for
shooting, but missing a deer
(it's a shame iliiii... Even bet-
ter are those that are exclusive
to individual families; at our
house I change the linens on
our beds the day we leave for
a vacation so that our first
night back in our own beds is
an extra wonderful thing! My
family loves and appreciates
this!
Because traditions usually
aren't written down, their his-
tories often get lost. We may
continue to do them, without
knowing why. For example, I
have blown out candles on my
cake every time I celebrate my
29th Birthday, and have no
idea why that is so important.
What I do know is that lately it
seems to take a lot more air!
I was delighted recently to
stumble across an explanation
in the Bible for a tradition that
we still partially keep in our
culture. In 1 Corinthians 11,
the Apostle Paul discusses the
origin of the custom during his
day of women wearing a head
covering during worship, while
men took their hats off. This
custom began as a way to
show the line of authority (not
a line of superiority) in the
home, as designated by God.
The Message Bible translates
verses 3 and 9 like this: "In a
marriage relationship, there is
authority from Christ to hus-
band, and from husband to
wife, by these symbolic acts
(of covering and uncovering
the head) men and women,


heart

latter
Angie Land


who far too often
butt heads with
each other, submit
their "heads" to
the Head: God."
So when a man
takes his hat off,
he is symbolically
submitting his au-
thority to God as
his head. In the
same way, a
woman would
cover her head, to


show her submis-
sion to her husband's authority
under Christ.
Before all you men hound
your wives about wearing their
head-coverings to church, what
in the world do you think that
half-inch of hairspray is for?!
All joking aside, understand-
ing that this was a custom dur-
ing Paul's day keeps us free
from a legalistic approach that
would "force" women to wear
head covering and men to re-
move theirs, but I love the his-
tory of this. My husband is a
hat-wearer, whose Mama
taught him that it was the re-
spectful thing to do to remove
his hat in a building, at the
dinner table or when a prayer
is offered. As his wife, the pas-
sage in 1 Corinthians is price-
less to me, because nothing
brings me more security or a
willingness to submit to his
authority as the leader in our
home, than to know that he
will turn around and submit
that authority to Christ. So to
all you husbands and dads who
are willing to be the leaders in
your family, and submit to
Christ, hats off to you!

Evil never sleeps


David H. Matier
Doctor of Christian
C ., ,,,,. l1 :,

While He was
praying, Jesus's dis-
ciples slept. His


(42~


prayer was so in-
tense he bled through his
skin! Notice Luke's ac-
count: "And being in an
agony, he prayed more
earnestly: and his sweat was
as it were great drops of
blood falling down to the
ground." (Luke 22:44)
While he prayed they were
asleep, "And when he arose
up from prayer, and was
come to his disciples, he
found them sleeping for sor-
row, And said unto them,
Why sleep ye? Rise and
pray, lest ye enter into temp-
tation." (Luke 22:45, 46)
But while the disciples
were sleeping Satan was
planning Christ's demise.
He never misses a moment
of opportunity and will use
your weak spots to hinder
the work of the Lord. Luke
22:3-5 reads, "Then entered
Satan into Judas surnamed
Iscariot, being of the num-
ber of the twelve. And he
went his way, and com-
muned with the chief priests
and captains, how he might
betray him (Jesus) unto
them. And they were glad,
and covenanted to give him
money."
Judas was transfixed on
money; it was his weakness
and Satan knew it and used
it; even to the point of be-
traying the Lord Jesus
Christ. I Timothy 6:10 -
"For the love of money is
the root of all evil: which


while some coveted
after, they have
erred from the faith,
and pierced them-
selves through with
many sorrows."
Notice in this


passage Jesus
warns the disciples two
times to pray so they can
avoid temptation: 1)
"...Pray that ye enter not
into temptation (Luke
22:40) and, 2) "...Why sleep
ye? Rise and pray, lest ye
enter into temptation. (Luke
22:46)
He knew He was about to
be betrayed. He knew be-
cause He is OMNIPO-
TENT all knowing that
evil was lurking behind the
scene even though they
chose to take a nap. The 11
disciples didn't heed the
message they slept while
evil worked.


Christians had better
wake up! The following is a
quote from a book I am
currently reading entitled:
Why Men Hate Going to
Church, by David Murrow
(page 48):
"Islam is the world's
fastest-growing religion,
and what do you know?
...Since 1950 the number of
Christians in the world has
doubled, but the number of
Muslims has more than
tripled. In the heavily Chris-
tian United Kingdom there
are approximately 1 million
practicing Christians and
about 750,000 practicing
Muslims. British Muslims
live their faith. While most
Christians do not. During
the last three decades, Islam
has emerged as the second
religion of Europe after
Christianity. It's not just
growth via immigration:

observers report an influx
of white faces worshiping
among the brown faces.
The tepid European church
is accomplishing what the
Moors could not: delivering
Europe to Islam."
Because Christians have
just sat by, apparently for
the most part have been in-
active, not living out their
faith; sleeping while evil
moves on they have let
modem Islam do something
that the Moors with all
theirs swords and weaponry


couldn't do in regard to
spreading religion of Allah
into Europe!
If you claim to be a
Christian, naming the name
of Christ, you had better
rise up and be alert because
while you've been sleeping
a lot has been happening!
You need to get into the
trenches. It's time to go
soul winning. Pastor teach
your people how to go
door-to-door and lead peo-
ple to Christ; to be profi-
cient at personal work. I


don't mean forcing any-
thing down anyone's throat,
but to present Christ in such
a way that when they leave
a home there will be no
doubt to the adults in that
home that they had an op-
portunity to invite Christ
into their home. And mean-
while be alert. Pray that you
do not fall victim to tempta-
tion because evil never
sleeps.

Lemon-Bay Tortellini with Spinach & Wild Mushrooms


The way America cooks is in the midst of a flavorful
evolution, according to the 10th annual McCormick'
Flavor Forecast. The report predicts an increased
preference for high-impact flavors, balanced with
comforting favorites. We'll see new flavor combina-
tions, thanks to the breadth of year-round ingredients,
chosen and present .11 ,11L pI '1" of freshness, available in a pantry
near you.
"Flavor has never been so quick and accessible," says Kevan
Vetter, Executive Chef at McCormick. "Today, a well-stocked
pantry is like having a local farmer's market or bountiful
backyard garden in your kitchen." The endless harvest of
canned, pickled, preserved, frozen and dried ingredients
are indispensable, at-the-ready tools for everyday
one-dish meal ideas that are anything but ordinary.
For example, a convenient can of coconut milk takes
pumpkin pie spice and chicken thighs Caribbean.
Economical canned chickpeas add Mediterranean flair
to once-humble Shepherd's Pie, now ft rtrin l; 11ic
alluring warmth of roasted cumin. And, aromatic bay
leaves join salty-tart preserved lemons to brighten up
tortellini, courtesy of the local grocer (or, your own
handiwork see sidebar).
