As the images of the devasta-

to fill the airwaves in America fol-

there, dozens of local people,
churches and organizations have
stepped up to make a difference.

The Suwannee County

more than 50

plants when it
shut down a
local grow e
Orlando house, ac- e
Foja Rios cording to
sheriff's re-

185th Road, Live Oak.
Fifty-two pot plants were
confiscated at the 185th
Road residence on Jan. 12
around 4:30 p.m., accord-
ing to a report by DTF
Deputy Robert Sammons.
A "black plastic bag con-
taining marijuana plant ma-
terial" was also reportedly
taken into evidence. Sam-
mons reported that the
grow house utilized 24,
1,000-watt grow lights, liq-
uid fertilizer, two air condi-
tioning units, grow buckets,
24 ballasts and a large num-
ber of fans.
"A total approximate
weight of the marijuana
seized was obtained using a
LED scale which revealed a
weight of 15 pounds," re- r
ported Sammons.
The DTF investigation

Fatal


cycle


crash


ends in


arrest
By Jeff Waters
A former Live Oak resi-
dent was ar-
rested Friday
in connection
with a fatal
Suwannee
County mo-
torcycle acci-
dent in May Dennis
2009. Eugene
Dennis Eu- Dewald
gene Dewald,
47, now of Valdosta, was
headed north on CR 49 on a
1999 Honda Shadow with a
passenger, Stacy L. Hol-
comb, 40, also of Live Oak,
when the motorcycle left
the roadway and overturned
near the intersection of 87th
Road, according to Florida
Highway Patrol reports.
Holcomb died the next
day at Shands UF. Dewald,
then a Live Oak resident,
was hospitalized there with
critical injuries.
Dewald has been charged
with driving with an ex-
pired license resulting in
death or serious injury, and
with having no motorcycle
endorsement on his driver's
license, jail records show.
According to a probable
cause affidavit from FHP,
Dewald had not driven a
motorcycle in 28 years. A
woman who had been rid-
ing near Dewald the day of
the crash told troopers he
"appeared to be very inex-
perienced in operating a
motorcycle," according to
the affidavit.

By Linda Dye
What a way to start the
New Year, brrrrrrr!
During the past couple of
weeks one could almost
imagine themselves
traveling by way of
dogsled across the frozen
tundra of Russia. No
wonder travelers passing
through the outback
thought they were not yet
in Sunny Florida.
Inevitably they would ask,
"When do we get to
Florida?" And when I
would answer, "You are in
Florida," they would look
at me like I was lacking
good sense of the
geographical location of
my home state.
But even with the
unusually cold
temperatures, daily life in
the outback has been very
active. We are a pioneer
bunch and a little cold
snap is not about to stop us
from doing what must be
done ... like cleaning up
the burnt-out mess left
behind when arsonists sent
Hank Whisnant's
home/business dwelling of
20 plus years up in a blaze
of smoke. Hank may have
lost his home, business
and most all his personal
belongings, but the one
thing the fire could not
destroy was Hank's
friends.
On Friday, Jan. 8, the
Wellborn Community
Association's center was
overflowing with more
than 200 people, all of
whom had turned out to
enjoy a WCA/WNW
sponsored benefit fish
dinner and cake sale. The
event certainly showed
Hank just how much those
of us in his hometown
value one of their own.
Monies raised will help
Hank get through these
difficult times and will
also serve to remind him
that he has friends and a
home community that
cares. Small town America
is still alive and well!
Last week dawned bitter
cold, yet a work crew of
several men from our
close-knit outback
community gathered at the
WCA owned property




Q: What do I do if I have a dental
emergency?
A: The time to prepare for a dental
emergency is now, before it happens. In
any of the following instances, call your
dentist as soon as possible. If you or your
child knocks out a tooth, retneve the tooth
and hold it by the crown, not the root. If it's
dirty, rinse it off, but don't scrub off any
tissue fragments that ma be on it. If
possible, put the tooth back in its socket in
the jaw. If not, put it in a container with milk
or cool water.
For a toothache, rinse the mouth with
warm water to clean it out. Floss the
problem area to make sure a piece of food
is not lodged against the tooth. Do not put
aspirin against the tooth or gum. Dissolving
aspirin can actually burn the tissue.
If you break a tooth, again, rinse the area
with warm water to keep it clean. Used
cold compresses in this situation, and in
any other instance of trauma, to keep
swelling down. And you should keep your
dentist's phone number in a visible spot,
along with other emergency numbers. The
next time you visit your dentist, ask him
about materials like gauze, beeswax,
topical anesthetics that are good to have
at home in a dental emergency kit.

where once stood
Wellbom's old cold
storage building, and
where Hank had lived and
worked making his
cypress furniture. For 12
days they labored, non-
stop, until they had
cleared all the fire-gutted
debris away. Thanks go to
the following people who
gave unselfishly of their
time and labor: Ronnie
Torres, Wayne Brooks,
Austin Schaver, Wellborn
Fire Chief Tom Maynard,
Marlin Knight, WCA
President Wendell
Snowden, and last, but not
least, Charles Osgood,
who gave much of his
time to the effort of
making sure the property
was taken care of. On the
final clean-up day, Dale
Barrett came over with his
tractor and loaded the vast
piles of debris into trucks
to be hauled to the landfill.
But with the now vacant
property comes a reminder


of what we as a
community have lost
because of the careless act
of thoughtless people.
Wellborn has lost a part of
its history. The tin
building where Hank had
lived & made his cypress
furniture since 1980 was
built in the 1930s and
once served as Wellborn's
cold storage. And we have
lost some of our small
town innocence and trust.
Remember to help a
neighbor when you see a
need. Be kind to the
wayward stranger, for you
too may one day be that
stranger. Tell those you
love you love them. Tell
them today, for tomorrow
may be too late. Pray for
the men and women who
gallantly serve our
country, and pray for their
families' enduring strength
and the safe return of their
loved ones.
May God bless you all
through the coming year!

Q The fence in my front yard is
getting gray and I would like to
paint it this spring, Can you give
me some fence painting tips?

painting your fence is better than just ignoring it
and having to replace it every few years. Don't
forget to paint or stain the ends of the boards as
well. This is open end grain that will be exposed
directly to the elements, and if left unpainted or
stained, moisture will very easily work its way
down into the boards, rotting them as it goes. It's
easier on you (and better for the paint) if you
don't work in the direct sun or during the heat of
the day. Direct sun will make the paint dry too
fast and it won't be able to provide proper
protection.

Antihistamines for Motion Sickness
Motion sickness can occur when traveling on cruise ships, airplanes,
trains, and automobiles. It is thought to occur when there is an
imbalance between the cholinergic and adrenergic systems in the central
nervous system. The brain senses movement in response to signals
received from a person's ears, eyes, and muscles. If the signals do not
match, motion sickness may result. For example, if the eyes cannot
sense movement because a window is not available during
transportation while the inner ear senses motion, a mismatch in signals
to the brain about motion may occur. Symptoms of motion sickness
include nausea, dizziness, and cold sweats.
Antihistamines available over-the-counter, such as meclizine (Bonine)
and dimenhydrinate (Dramamine), are used for the treatment and
prevention of motion sickness. They are usually taken 30 to 60 minutes
before traveling. These medications may cause dry mouth and
drowsiness. Scopolamine (Transderm Scop) is a medication that also
may be prescribed for motion sickness. Scopolamine works by
inhibiting the cholinergic system. The medication is worn as a patch
behind the ear to prevent motion sickness for up to 3 days. Common
side effects include dry mouth, blurred vision, and drowsiness.

It's hard to believe it's been four years,
Since the day that we shed so many tears.
We still think of you everyday,
It started with the one that you went away.
Parts of you still live on,
From the stories we tell to our get well song.
When memories of you start to fade,
I remember all the Sunday dinners you made.
You always knew how to make people smile,
If only once more we could talk for a while.
I can sti hear your voice in the songs that I sin,
How I wish it was you when the phone starts to ri
Our children still miss the grandma they never kn
But when this life is over it still is not through.
A promise we have that this is not the end,
SAnd one day in heaven we will all meet again.
Love alwa s,
Stephen, Micelle.

THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLER


Joyful


news
By Jim Holmes
Well, I have good news and I have bad news ...
and it is the same news!
My baby girl is finally getting married to her
long-time boy friend. Mind you, she's 28, but in
my heart and mind, she is still that five-pound bag
of sweet sugar her mama and I brought home in
that old school bus-yellow Ford Pinto back in
1982.
I'm delighted with the guy she has picked. She
seems to have found a gentle giant of a man, who
is very intelligent, hardworking, has a good job
and -praise the Lord -doesn't have any body
piercings I can see. (I don't plan to ask him if
there are any I can't see.)
I mean, he's old fashioned enough to have actu-
ally asked me for her hand in marriage, but not so
old fashioned as to have demanded a dowry. Mind
you, if he had asked for one, I already had a plan
in place. I thought I'd give him six laying hens, an
old sow my neighbor is willing to sell cheap and
of course that nutty black cat my daughter foisted
upon us after graduating from college. (She
swears she never did any drugs while at UF, but
that cat is so crazy, someone must have slipped it
LSD).
Of course, housing those critters in a San Anto-
nio subdivision might prove problematic.
Yep, I'm delighted that she's found "the one."
So what's the bad news? Well, this means I
have another wedding with which to contend.
You see, in my opinion these events are both emo-
tionally and financially draining. I learned that
several years ago thanks to my son's "Palm
Beach" fete, where we had a heck of a lot less re-
sponsibility than what we'll have for Sarah's cere-
mony. I suspect you other battle-scarred "wedding
veterans" know exactly what I am speaking about.
I cite my own ceremony and reception as per-
fect examples. When Lynda and I got hitched
nearly 40 years ago, her mama wanted a fairly
nice "to do." I guess it turned out great, but only
after weeks of everyone pulling their hair out in
preparation. All that for an event about which
Lynda and I have very, very little recollection.
Only one thing really stands out in my memory:
seeing my beautiful bride on her daddy's arm
walking down the aisle. Everything else -in-
cluding the vows is just a blur to both of us.
For example, my wife swears the old Baptist
preacher who tied the knot didn't make her swear
to "love, honor and OBEY!" Where was video
tape when I really needed it?
My daughter, unfortunately, is working under a
real handicap in preparation for her nuptials. You
see, she fell in love with a guy after I retired on a
fixed income and after the Great Recession. So
this time we set a firm budget and I felt we could
easily handle the luau-themed wedding and recep-
tion my wife and daughter were talking about...
until I learned they wanted to host it IN HAWAII!
Once I was able to stop hyperventilating, I
countered with a theme wedding idea of my own:
a trip to Zephyrhills where I know a notary public
who performs a drive-through ceremony for 20
bucks. I figured we could complete the theme
with a "drive-through reception" at a McDonald's.
For some reason, this perfectly good proposal
was rejected out of hand by both of them. I just
don't understand women. I even promised to
have all our Big Mac orders supersizedd!"

GUEST COLUMN


Question:
By Dwain
Walden
I was asked
the other day
what I thought
about global
warming. With
chattering teeth
and numb toes I
said, "I could use
some right now."
But seriously, I don't know if
we're having global warming and if
we are, what effects man-made fac-
tors enter into it. And I don't know
if we're not.
What I know is it gets hot every
summer, cold every winter and in-
terspersed in there are droughts and
floods. I'm not a scientist and I
can't interview a polar bear.
However, I do not pooh pooh dis-
cussions about environmental
changes because I do know they
happen. I suppose the crux of the
matter is how much and which ones
are irreversible.
Let's face it, our streams are not
primeval pure and our skies contain
pollutants of various descriptions.
The world keeps getting more peo-
ple and the byproducts of our
"progress" are certainly not negligi-
ble.
Recently, it was discovered that
some scientists or pseudo scientists
had doctored findings to support
their arguments about global warm-
ing. That interfered substantially
with the integrity of any debates
even though by comparison, the bad
guys in this issue likely were only a


'What if we
grain of sand on the beach com-
pared to the good guys who indeed
are looking for truth.
Some people say we are seeing
global warming but man is not a
factor in it.
Others say it simply isn't happen-
ing. Some say our pollutants are
causing problems than eventually
may dangerously raise water levels.
Of course one's thoughts about
global warming might be greatly
jaundiced during a severe cold snap.
It's kind of like having just eaten
two chili dogs for lunch and you're
not concerned at the moment what's
for supper.
I do know enough about the sub-
ject to realize that global warming
doesn't mean that we won't have
anymore winters. It's a "big-pic-
ture" thing measured in small incre-
ments that may or may not be dev-
astating down the road.
My position on global warming at
the moment is what I call the
"What-if-we're-wrong" rationale.
Let's say that we prepare for
global warming and it's not happen-
ing. We're wrong in that instance,
but in the context of qualitative and
quantitative analyses, we're safe. In
other words, we bought an insur-
ance policy and never had to use it.
Then let's imagine that it is hap-
pening and we didn't try to counter
any factors that we might have ef-
fected. I don't think that's the kind
of hci n_ wrong" that is conducive
to longevity.
I hope that we are not having
global warming. But I also hope


're wrong?'
that we are wise enough to see the
difference between politics and in-
tegrity in a mode of seeking truth.
And if there is some evidence that
man is contributing to any ill ef-
fects, that our best minds can be put
to the task of reasonable counter
measures.
But maybe I'm hoping for too
much. I did say that I hope we can
see the difference between politics
and integrity.
So the discussions at the breakfast
club this morning had much to do
with our current record cold snap.
So as the hot coffee was being
poured, I tried to put it all into per-
spective by noting that on this very
morning the people of South Dakota
would see what we're experiencing
as the "spring thaw."

first is usually never liked, because
each governing body does not want

the screaming and shouting is over, I

up with a better system. Personnel

Peace Baptist pastor Gainesville woman
rdpitiuallu ininptd


loses home to fire


Benefit fund will help Holton family recover


By Stephenie Li\ K..i. 'i .


A fire destroyed the home of
Peace Baptist Church pastor T. L.
Holton, Sr. around 6 a.m. Monday,
January 11 in Branford. However,
the community is rallying around
the pastor and his family.
A wood heater the Holton fami-
ly was using during one of the


coldest nights of the recent cold
snap, overheated and started a fire
in the living room, according to a
Suwannee County Fire/Rescue re-
port. The fire spread to the ceiling
after contact with stove pipes ex-
cited the flames.
Fire crews extinguish the en-
gulfed living room and discovered
the fire had spread to the attic.
Firefighters removed the ceiling in


various locations and extinguished
hot spots.
No one was seriously injured in
the fire.
A relief fund has been set up at
Lafayette State Bank in the name
of Pastor T. L. Holton, Sr. Fire
Benefit Fund for those who would
like to make donations to help the
Holton's. All donations are tax de-
ductible.

O'BRIEN AND OUR NEIGHBORS


'Bits & Pieces' from south Suwannee County


By Ana Smith

How nice it was to wake up Sun-
day morning with the sun shining
and the temperatures warm enough
that only a sweater was needed if
you went out. What a difference
after a very wet Saturday. Hope-
fully we've seen the last of the ex-
tremely low temperatures, as well
as the rain.
The news is filled with the hor-
rors of the earthquake in Haiti. I
know you are all praying for that
country in the aftermath of the dev-
astation. Please also be very care-
ful of the organizations that are
asking for your money. If you are
in a position to send financial help,
look to the proven organizations, as
well as your churches, before writ-
ing out that check.


I thought we were all past the
"colds and flu" with so many suf-
fering the last couple of months,
but there are still so many dealing
with those illnesses. Stay away
from crowds, take care of yourself,
and please stay home so that you
are not one of those "passing it
around."
The food pantry I mentioned in
December is finally up and opera-
tional at O'Brien Baptist Church.
After three months of work, we
now have a stocked food pantry
available to those who are experi-
encing a need. Informational flyers
have been posted in a few places in
the Branford and O'Brien areas,
signs have been put up at the inter-
section of highway 129 and high-
way 349 in O'Brien, and you can
call for more information as to eli-


gibility at the church office at 935-
1503, or by calling the project di-
rector, Ron Bullinger, at 935-4439.
Our church is located just about 2
blocks west on highway 349 from
the blinking light in "downtown
O'Brien." Hours of operation on
the third Tuesday of each month
are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The of-
ficial name is the O'Brien Baptist
Emergency Food Pantry, and this
past Tuesday was the first day in
which the pantry was open. If you
have a need and live in Suwannee
County, please stop by. Please
make a note on your calendar
about this food pantry, and call
Ron Bullinger to find out what you
need in order to meet the criteria
and to verify the next date of the

Congressman Allen Boyd addressing
residents at Advent Christian Village.
- ACV Staff photo

By ACV Staff
Congressman Allen Boyd recently
paid a visit to Advent Christian Vil-
lage in order to help the organization
with an issue. The Microsoft Corpo-
ration offers discounts to a limited
number of charities that meet specif-


ic criteria, so ACV asked to be con-
sidered for the discount for an up-
coming software upgrade. Although
ACV is a charitable organization
serving the needs outlined in the re-
quirements, due to a minor techni-
cality, the organization did not fully
meet the criteria. One representative
suggested that it might be helpful if
ACV obtained a letter from their
congressman confirming the organi-
zation's efforts in serving the med-
ical needs of frail seniors and fami-
lies in an underserved rural area of
North Florida.
ACV President and CEO Craig
Carter contacted Congressman
Boyd's office for help. Boyd was
also invited to address the member-
ship of ACV at a specially called Vil-
lage Forum.
Upon his arrival, Carter met with
the congressman, hopeful that he
would agree to write the letter. Con-
gressman Boyd, however, went the
extra mile, by contacting a Microsoft
official in Washington. Even though
the outcome would not be known for


days, the crowd of residents waiting
to hear the Congressman speak at the
Forum, cheered enthusiastically
when Carter announced the help that
Congressman Boyd had given to
ACV. Boyd went on to discuss the is-
sues that he is dealing with in Con-
gress, spending much of his time on
healthcare.
Just three days later, Carter
learned that Microsoft was not grant-
ing the charitable discount to ACV,
but instead was donating the soft-
ware at no charge whatsoever. The
total value of the gift was $87,000.
"We were at a place where we had
no choice," said Carter. "We had to
upgrade our computer software.
When ACV does not have to spend
thousands of dollars on software up-
grades, it frees up those funds to be
used according to our mission, ex-
pressing Christ's love by providing
compassionate, comprehensive ser-
vices to those we serve. We appreci-
ate so much the efforts of Congress-
man Boyd in helping Advent Christ-
ian Village in this way."


Clear the clutter!


By Diane Johnson
ACV Resident
Dealing with clutter is a
common struggle. We buy
new clothes, new books and
new gadgets without getting
rid of the old. Holiday gifts
now fill our shelves and
closets, whether we use
them or not. Those who
lived through the Depres-
sion were conditioned to
never throw anything away.
However, clutter can be a
real problem for the elderly,
and even a health hazard. If
your elderly loved one has a
clutter problem, what can
you do?
You may be tempted to
simply take control and start
throwing things away, but
that will add undue stress
and can cause resentment
toward you. Involve them in
the process, encouraging
them that when the job is
finished, they will enjoy a
cleaner, more organized
home. This may be a relief,

because they may be frus-
trated with their clutter, but
lack the ability to safely pull
items off overhead shelves
or carry heavy boxes.
Where do you begin?
First talk with your loved
one about the importance of
an organized, clutter-free
home, without shaming
them. Discuss your concern
for their safety. A cluttered
home is a fire hazard. Mold,
mildew and bugs can affect
health, including causing
respiratory problems. Per-
haps the most common safe-
ty issue with clutter is that it
is a trip hazard, which can
lead to broken bones and
long-term debilitation.
There should always be am-
ple room to easily move
through the home, so that in
case of an emergency, emer-
gency services can quickly
access each room. Another
proven benefit is that our
mood improves when we
live in a clean, organized en-
vironment, and it's also easi-
er to find things. Talk with
your loved one about the
importance of an organized,
clutter-free home, without
shaming them. Discuss your


concern for their safety. Talk
about the benefits of donat-
ing items to a second hand
shop or charity of their
choice, some of which will
pick up items at no charge.
Selling items in a yard sale,
or on eBay can generate ex-
tra spending money.
Once your loved one is on
board, how do you proceed
in a way that will not over-
whelm them? First, think
small. Do just one thing at a
time -- one closet, one dress-
er, under the bed, etc. and do
it for only one hour. Be there
to help, but don't pressure
them to throw away items
that are of true importance
to them. Be patient with
them, making the process as
pleasant as possible. This
will help them to feel more
at ease and not shy away
from the chore in the future.
If the decision process is
difficult, ask them to agree
to follow these guidelines: If
something doesn't work,
doesn't fit or isn't used, dis-
pose of it. If clothing has not
been worn in a year, give it
away. If they don't know
what is inside a box, consid-
er getting rid of it without


Diane Johnson


opening it. If it hasn't been
missed, it isn't needed. If
shelves are crammed with
trinkets, suggest that they
pick out a certain number of
their favorites and sell the
rest. With collectable items
that will be willed to some-
one after their death, think
about giving them now, so
that they can see the enjoy-
ment the gift brings.
If they resist parting with
anything at all, suggest that
all items not currently in use
be boxed up and put into
storage. Ask them to agree
to getting rid of the items if
they have not missed them
in six months. Determine
now where they will go and
label them to avoid having
to go through them later.

ACV staffers net first place at Ragnar Relay


I he ACV Try-Athletes. Courtesy photo


By ACV Staff
ACV's fitness expert (and
Copeland Community Cen-
ter Director) David Burch re-
cently headed up an Advent
Christian Village team of
runners in the Ragnar Relay.
The Try-Athletes, as they
named themselves, took first
place in the corporate divi-
sion, completing the 203-
mile course in 31 hours.
They came in 41st overall,
out of 115 teams. The Florida
Ragnar course runs from Tar-
pon Springs to Daytona


Beach. The Ragnar slogan is
"Run-Drive-Sleep?-Repeat."
Throughout the race, there is
one member of each 12-per-
son team running at all times,
while the rest of the team
rests in the support vans.
The Try-Athletes include
men and women of all differ-
ent levels of athletic ability.
There are no college track
stars, although a couple of
team members ran high
school track. Most agree that
they never thought they
would have the ability to run


across the state of Florida.
They began by running to get
into shape, a half mile at a
time. One by one, they began
training for 5K races and it
continued from there.
"Recreational running is
an individual sport," said
team captain Burch. "The
nice thing about Ragnar is
that it's a team event. It's very
rewarding supporting your
teammates and cheering
them on. You all work to-
ward a common goal. It's
also rewarding to run for a


good cause. Each Ragnar
race helps to support Boys
and Girls Clubs in each state
that hosts the relay."
The team is made up of
ACV employees or those
closely related to ACV. They
are: David Burch, (Total of
17.5 miles), Suzy Burch
(13.6), Adam Carter (21.4)
Andrew Chapman (14) Kelly
Chapman (15.3), Rich Cor-
ley (16.9), Jordan Harmon
(22.3), Brad Lewis (14.3),
Dr. Nasseer Masoodi (20),
David Palomino (18.4), Matt
Pearson (14.7) and Ty
Robinson (13.1).
This is the second year that
Ragnar has been held in
Florida, and the Try-Athletes
participated both years. Last
year they also won first
place, not in the race, but in
the video competition. You
can view this winning video
a t
http://www.youtube.com/wa
tch?v=tGHz-UF4Wzo.
These positive role models
are practicing the good habits
that are encouraged at
Copeland Community Cen-
ter and Copeland Medical
Center, both of which are
open to the public.


Clear the clutter!


Continued From Page 10A

Once your hour of de-
cluttering is up, find a
meaningful way to celebrate
the progress. This will help
your loved one continue to
feel good about the process
and make it more likely that
they will want to tackle an-
other closet soon. Finally,
set a date for the next de-
cluttering session.
Maybe your loved one is-
n't the only one that needs
some de-cluttering. We all
have projects on our to do
list that we have put off. The
benefits of clearing the clut-
ter are a cleaner, safer, more
organized home, with room
for the things that we really
need and enjoy. Do it now.
Get the item off the list and
enjoy life!

Locals open their hearts to Haiti

ShelterBoxes usually
contain "one (sometimes
two) 10-person tents, insu-
lated sleeping mats, ther-
mal blankets, water purifi-
cation tablets, water purifi-
cation kits, water contain-
ers/carriers, a trenching
shovel, a multi-fueled cook
stove, eating utensils, plates
and children's activity kits
and other essentials," ac-
cording to the distributing
charity's Web site.
Each tote-like storage
container costs nearly
$1,000, Lacquey said.
"There's a lot of people
giving," he said. "If anyone
can donate, please log onto
shelterboxusa.org to help."
Lacquey has been in Mi-
ami since Thursday.
Meanwhile, Pastor Frank
Davis and his congregation
at Melody Christian Center
received disheartening re-
ports from their Haiti com-
rades following an article in
Friday's Suwannee Democ-
rat.
Last Friday the Democ-
rat reported that Davis and
several others had just re-
turned from a missions trip
to Haiti the weekend prior
to the earthquake to visit
fellow minister Luc Dera-
tus.
Davis said as of Monday,
he had learned that seven
members from Deratus'


congregation in Cite Mili-
taire were killed in the
earthquake. Both Deratus'
church in Port au Prince
and the church being built
in LaSalle were destroyed
by the quake, along with
the ministry's clinic and
school, Davis reported.
At this time, however,
Davis along with minister
Chris Musgrove of Live
Oak, are on a fly list with
plans of taking antibiotics,
medical supplies and finan-
cial resources to aid Har-
mony Ministries. The two
are praying to get a green
light, but will likely be re-
stricted from traveling until
some time next week,
Davis said.
"All we will be able to
take is what we can take on
our person," Davis added.
"We're primarily taking
funds to help rebuild the
main church, which will be
a sign of stability, a refuge
and a place of worship, and
to rebuild the school so the
children can continue their
education."
For every story of heart-
break flowing out of the
shattered island nation,
though, there are dozens of
stories of joy, grace and
hope. Such is the news that
one local couple received
Monday.
Bob and Linda Phelps
are members at First Bap-
tist Church of Live Oak.

For two years, they have
been in the process of adopt-
ing 12-year-old Jenifer
Ulysses, a Haitian orphan.
Monday evening, they got
word that the adoption of
their daughter was com-
plete, and traveled to pick
her up from an airport in Or-
lando on Tuesday.
"We're walking on air, yet
we're grieved for Haiti,"
said Bob Monday. "It's a
classic case of mixed emo-
tions."
In 2007, the couple trav-
eled on a missions trip with
their local church to provide
medical care to orphans at
the Bercy Baptist Children's
Home in Haiti.
It was then that they first
met Jenifer, their daughter.
"She bonded with Linda
while we were over there,"
Bob said. "We're both in
our 60s and never had any
intention of adopting, but
we fell head-over-heels in
love with her."
Miraculously, all of the
couple's adoption records
were safely stored at the
U.S. Embassy in Haiti,
which was not damaged
during last week's earth-
quake, Bob said.
"Our daughter's visa was
approved on Sunday, and
our adoption agent, Barbara
Walker, sent a message
Monday, with the words at-
tached: Ready or not, here I
come."
It was the news the couple
had been waiting for.
Linda began to tell the
story over the phone Mon-
day, but was overcome with
emotion as she handed the
receiver to her husband.
Their daughter Jenifer, who
has taken on their last name,
is finally home, safe with
her parents.

Baptist of Live Oak, is con-
tinuing to collect offerings

support of Haiti, said Cristi-
na Herrington, wife of Pas-
tor Philip Herrington.
She said the church is
also sending aid to Bercy
Baptist Children's Home,
the orphanage, which the
church has helped for years
through the Jacksonville
Baptist Association (JBA).
"We've taken several
trips to Haiti, usually once a
year to work in the orphan-
age there," Herrington said.
"As a result of the earth-
quake, there was a perime-
ter wall that came off of the
orphanage, but the structure
is OK and all 30 or so chil-
dren are OK." Especially
Jenifer.

In Live Oak, little black
boys and girls joined hands
with little white boys and
girls, as black men and
white men, Jews and Gen-
tiles, Protestants and
Catholics, joined hands,
reminiscent of King's vi-
sion nearly 50 years ago.
The evidence was clear
that King's dream was not
completely deferred. Even
some of Suwannee Coun-
ty's youngest citizens un-
derstood the significance
of the holiday.
"It brings people togeth-
er," said 14-year-old Taryn
Loper. "I can tell that just
with integration and how
when we go back to school
that we're all able to come
together. And one man did
that."
Local Ruby Royal
echoed that sentiment.
"This day means a lot to
me," she said. "Dr. King
was one of our leaders, and
I wish we could find more
leaders like him."
As the procession made
its way around town and
rose onto the steps of
African Baptist Church on
Walker Avenue, the doors
opened and marchers be-
came church congregants.
The music rose to the
sound of "Lift Every Voice
and Sing," followed by a
chant with echoed words:
"Yes we can! Yes we did!
Yes we are! and Yes we
will."
Guest speaker Dr. Henry
J. Lyons, former president
of the National Baptist
Convention, extolled the
crowd of over 300.
"We come for a great
celebration," he said.
"This is our own time to
get up, stand up, and to re-
new within us the dream."
Around the room, heads
nodded in agreement.


"The secret of America
is found in its privileges,"
Lyons said. "Two main
privileges our civil and
religious liberties. We're
all free to go and do as we
please, and we're free to
worship as we please."
He expounded, "Roger
Williams tested our coun-
try's religious liberties,
and black men tested our
country's civil liberties."
He touched on the
harshness of American
slavery, faith, the Civil
War, the Bill of Rights, the
Emancipation Proclama-
tion, the importance of ed-
ucation, and the impor-
tance of visualizing the fu-
ture.
"Dr. King understood
these things," he said. "He
was a moral force for non-
violence."
Lyons called the days
ahead dark, but said it's
nothing new to Americans,
especially the African-
Americans in the crowd.
"We've been there be-
fore," he said. "So what
we must do is: run in every
election, stay committed
to education over enter-
tainment, learn and trade

He closed by saying,
"We stand between the

J ason
Shaun Schrader, 26, of
9136 US 90 West, Lake
City, forced another driver
off the road around 6:20
p.m., according to a report
by Deputy Tom Mullins.
The other driver was in
the process of passing
Schrader at the intersection
of 216th Street and 57th
Road in Suwannee County
but Schrader "was trying
to keep the victim from
getting in front of (him)
because he was scared that
the victim would try to
stop his vehicle and possi-
bly fight him," Mullins re-
ported. "Up to the point
that the victim tried to pass
the defendant, the victim
made no threats."
Schrader reportedly ad-
mitted to Mullins that the
victim "hadn't actually
done anything to him," but
was still afraid of what
would happen if he passed
him.
Schrader was arrested
and charged with aggravat-
ed assault with a vehicle.

A report by Sheriff's

an inspection by Suwannee
Valley Electric Coopera-

SVEC personnel told
Willis that power to the

SVEC reported that, upon

"SVEC told me the only

WQHLs parent company


seeks bankruptcy protection


Staff
DAYTONA BEACH -
Black Crow Media Group,
which operates local radio
station WQHL-FM 98.1 and
more than 20 others through-
out the Southeast, an-
nounced last Wednesday it
was seeking Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection. The
company will continue to
operate its 22 radio stations
during the restructuring
without interruption and has
sufficient resources to do so.
"Unfortunately, over the
past year and despite enor-
mous efforts to reduce ex-
penses, economic conditions
have finally deteriorated to a
point where it has become
impossible for us to support
our existing debt," Mike
Linn, President and CEO of
Black Crow, said in a press
release. "It is our hope that
this restructuring will bring
our debt in line with existing
market conditions thereby
allowing us to once again fo-
cus on operations and the job
of providing our markets
with the highest quality
news, information and enter-
tainment possible."
The company on Jan. 13
filed for Court approval of
various First-Day Motions
including: maintaining em-
ployee payroll and health
benefits; the fulfillment of
certain pre-filing obliga-
tions; and the ability to hon-
or all customer programs.
The company anticipates
that these First-Day Motions
will be approved in the next
few days.
Papers were filed in the


United States Bankruptcy
Court for the District of
Florida.
WQHL, "The Big 98," a
country station, was founded
in 1949 under the call letters
WNER by Norm Protsman.
The call letters changed to
the current WQHL in 1975.

Southern Broadcast Group,
Inc. then purchased it sever-
al years later. Black Crow

fact in a 2006 home invasion rob-
bery in Suwannee County, was sen- Alexander

month for the cost of supervision, and was
$503.49 in arrears as of Aug. 11, 2009, according
to court documents. He also failed to pay restitu-

dence. He said the suspects began to beat him in
the face with handguns and stole $204 from his
pocket.
According to LOPD, when the robbers re-

Pennick was convicted for his involvement in
the second home invasion. Tuesday, he signed a
waiver on all previous jail credit and was booked

He told Willis his son had
told him c'c',liing had

gards to having power re-
stored to the house."
SVEC said a "low end
estimate" of the amount of
electricity stolen was about
$12,600.
Young was booked into

Scenes from a recent

SHS girls soccer match


'Dogs go


2-1


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters
@gaflnews.com

The Suwannee
High School boys
basketball team went
2-1 recently. On Jan.
7 the guys took to the
road to play Newber-
ry where Suwannee
lost by one point in
the last four seconds
of play. The final
score was 49-48.
Suwannee was then
to take on Jasper Jan.
9, but that game was
canceled. On Mon-
day, Jan. 11, the team
traveled to Mayo
where they defeated
the Hornets 61-31.
The following Thurs-
day, Jan. 14, the
'Dogs spent a few
hours in Baker where
they came back with
a win of 60-41.
Suwannee's record
now stands at 9-8.

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
In the wake
of Mark A
McGwire
"confession"
and Jack Clark's
tirade against steroid users,
football came out looking
good. The New Orleans
Saints re-signed Deuce
McCallister.
McCallister didn't play a
down for the Saints this
year but the organization
knew what he had done for
this franchise. They made
him an honorary captain for
this past weekend's game.
The Saints won.
The New Orleans Saints
had been one of those
franchises that floundered
in defeat seemingly forever.
As bad as the Saints,
sometimes the Aints, they
always had a special place
in Suwannee County.

Blast from the Past gaining steam


The 2nd Annual Blast from the Past is
coming along as March 7 gets closer and
closer. Organizer Joyce Lankford has
been working hard on finding sponsor-
ship for the event and names and ad-
dresses for racers that need to be invit-
ed. But we still need the public's help.
"Since I am more familiar with as-
phalt than dirt racing, we really need
people from the dirt tracks to help us
with this," said Lankford. "We need
names and addresses for dirt racers, 60
and older, that need to be invited to our
event. If there is anyone who can help


us, please e-mail me at
slankfordl@aol.com or Jane Smith at
racingjls@aol.com. We would appreciate
any help we can get.
"We are still in need for some spon-
sors for this event. We could really use
some money since it will cost about
$10,000 to just put on the event. I have
gotten some sponsorship money but
need someone to step up and really do-
nate towards the event. I am working
daily on finding sponsorship money and
names but the event is getting closer and
closer and we need the money now."


You can send your donations or if you
would like to help sponsor the event to:

The 2nd Annual Blast from the Past is
set for March 7 at Citrus County Speed-


way. The Blast from the Past has chosen
the Citrus United Basket as the chairty
for this year's event. The Citrus United
Basket helps people down on their luck
when there is not many places to turn
with food and utility bills.
"I am so excited about this year's
event," said Lankford. "We just really,
really need some helping hands to make
it work. I have gotten a lot of good re-
sponses for the event and now we just
want to make sure that both the dirt
world and asphalt world know about the
Blast."

Continued From Page 1B

As the exploits of NFL
players and former
bulldogs Andra Davis,
Kelly Jennings and Bruce
Johnson are extolled, we
did have some pioneers.
Del Williams was one and
he was a Suwannee
Bulldog and an NFL
player.
Del was not only
enshrined in the Suwannee
Hall of Fame he was also
enshrined in the FSU Hall
of Fame. He is a member
of FSU's All Time Football
Team. He was drafted by
the New Orleans Saints in
the 1967 NFL draft. He
was the 79th college
football player chosen. An
astronomical feat when
you consider the offensive
guard position is usually
down on the draft charts.
He was called, by some,
the best college pulling
guard of his time.


Del was the first
Seminole chosen for the
All-Star East vs. West
game. He was a second
team All-American and had
an outstanding NFL career
with the New Orleans
Saints until 1973. He
blocked for Tom Dempsey
when he hit his 63-yard
field goal. He also
protected some quarterback
named Manning before
there were even any
thoughts of a Peyton or Eli.
He played with NFL Hall
Of Famers Doug Atkins
and Jim Taylor.
Del is one of Suwannee's
forgotten stars in part due
to his early death. He
passed in 1984 from ALS,
also known as Lou
Gehrig's disease. Del never
played for a winning Saints
team but that was not
unusual. The Saints didn't
have a winning season until
1987!
If you're looking for an
excuse to root against Brett
Favre this weekend I just
gave you one.


The Suwannee Democrat needs you.
Coaches and parents, send us your sports

mocrat will run them in sports for free.

Boys soccer undefeated


following break


By coach Archie Cook

The Suwannee High
School varsity soccer team
continued their success
over the Christmas break
by going 3-1 in four
games, taking their record
to 12-2-1 on the year. They
traveled to Newberry on
Dec. 18 for a district match
and left with a 5-0 win.
The 'Dogs are undefeated
in district play with just
two district games remain-
ing.
Suwannee also played in
the Bobcat Invitational on
Dec. 21 and 22 in
Gainesville. The Bobcat
Invitational is the number
one ranked high school
tournament in the state for
soccer. The 'Dogs dropped
a heartbreaker to Palm
Coast Mantanzas 2-1 in the
first game but would re-


bound later that day to de-
feat Mount Dora 3-2. The
Mount Dora game went
down to a penalty kick
shoot out as the game was
tied 2-2 at the end of regu-
lation. Goalkeeper Jake
Hayes stopped all but one
of the Mount Dora penalty
kicks and Suwannee made
all of their penalty kicks
but one to win the shoot
out. The third game
matched Suwannee versus
Eastside. Suwannee tied
Eastside in the first game
of the season 1-1. Their
would be no tie as the
Bulldogs jumped to a 4-0
lead and finished with a 5-
2 win.
The important thing
about the tournament is
that every team that
Suwannee played made it
deep into the state playoffs
last season and every team


had nearly unblemished
records:
Palm Coast Mantanzas
(12-0-1); Mount Dora (9-
3); Eastside (10-2-1).
The goal was to play
quality opponents and play
well. I was very pleased at
how the kids played.
Thanks for the continued
support.

Cheek's Gymnastics' last Salto


Submitted

Cheek's Gymnastics' last Salto (flip) was Dec. 31,
2009. Tom Cheek has closed the doors to his local gym
and is relocating to Lake City.
"I love Live Oak and the people in it," said Cheek. "If
I had it my way I would stay right here, I'm only leaving
because of clientele has been decreasing for a year and
hasn't picked up."
As I walked through Suwannee Health and Fitness I
noticed Cheek's Gymnastics gym didn't have anything in
it, so I found Tom working out and asked him what was
going on. Tom said, "I've tried three different times in
Live Oak in the gymnastics business and three times in
the weight lifting business; unfortunately each has slow-
ly dwindled down enough where I had to shut the busi-
ness down."
Tom also noted that each time each business flourished
initially but after a couple of years the clientele dimin-
ished.
"Don't get me wrong, Live Oak supported the
weightlifting and gymnastics gym in the beginning, and
everyone had a great time, but the only one that lasted
was the first gymnastics gym," said Cheek.
"The fist gymnastics gym was great. We lasted 19
years, from 1976-1995 until coach (Mike) Pittman need-
ed a football field house, so he and fellow school board
members gently asked me to leave."
Tom also mentioned that in those 19 years he produced
some of the best gymnasts in the state of Florida, such as
Robyn Wright Bonds, Tracy Register Baldwin, Carmen
Stansel Frier, Angela Allen Woods and Tina McCoy
Allen.
"Live Oak has such a great program in activities and
sports," Cheek said. "When I was in elementary, middle
and high school, Live Oak was great to live in just like
today. We had so much to do back then in the 60's and
70's, and it can be just like that now if parents will sup-

port the groups. So I'm moving Cheek's Gymnastics to
Lake City to try gymnastics again."
Tom took me up to Cheek's Gymnastics gym where he
was taking equipment out of the gym and loading every-
thing from the gym on a trailer. I asked him how he liked
Suwannee Health and Fitness location for his gym and
he replied, "I love this place, I couldn't ask for anything
better considering the circumstances. The Wainwrights
have been great landlords and have helped me out during
the four years I've been with them."
Tom said he will go to Lake City around the beginning
of spring; Tom met an investor that is taking care of the
building and of course Tom, Chris and Stormy Cheek
will run the business. The location is in the back of the
old K-Mart to the right of the Gleason Mall in Lake City.
I saw pictures of the old gym that Tom had just taken
apart. I asked him about what the new gym will have in
it. He said the gym will have exactly the same equipment
plus another set of bars, two beams, and a lot more odds
& ends to help produce great gymnasts. Another useful
training tool will be a pit filled with foam blocks and
padding.
"Gymnasts can learn different & harder skills in the
pit," said Cheek. "The gymnasts will also have access to
other pieces of equipment leading into the pit."
Tom noted that the new gym will offer preschool, be-
ginning, intermediate and advance classes, as well as
competition, and of course all gymnastics gyms must
have a mom and me class and tumbling class. A big part
of gymnastics these days in other sports is that of cheer
competition. Tom mentioned he and his wife Chris are
looking into this sport and will probably have this activi-
ty in the program.
"I know Lake City has several programs in cheer com-
petition so we will definitely look into putting this activi-

ty in our every day program," Cheek said. "I had a cou-
ple of teams come over from Lake City to practice on
our spring floor, so I know there's potential in Lake
City."
I have known Tom for many years. I went to school
with him at Suwannee High School. I know some dedi-
cated coaches but I've never known one like him. He has
coached most of his adult life from peewee baseball to
high school girls volleyball to boys weightlifting. He has
coached physical education and health for 20 years from
kindergarten to college. He also set up and taught alter-
native school for one year. I know he loves to teach and
will do anything for the kids. I don't believe I've met an-
other man like Tom Cheek, and it is unfortunate for the
sport of gymnastics in Live Oak. I bet in a few years
moms and dads will be looking for something that their
children can participate in. Too bad Tom will be gone.
The only thing Lake City has that Live Oak doesn't
have, according to this article, is more children and yes I
know, the economy is probably in the same situation as
Live Oak, but if I know Tom he will put 110 percent in
what he believes in. I know he will do well, he always
does.

through patches of blue
and green.
"These are not typical
quilts," MacMahon added.
Many different quilting
techniques are displayed in
the exhibit. Some quilters
used traditional patterns to
illustrate the theme while
others took a free-form ap-
proach, creating images
often found in Florida.
Several entries feature the
Sandhill Crane, a common
Florida sight because the
birds spend their winters
here.
A panel of judges from
the community and the
Florida Museum juried the
entries. Most quilts from
the 2006 "Quilting Natural
Florida" exhibit originated
in Florida, but this display
includes quilts from artists
in Florida, 12 other states,


and as far off as Sweden.
"The last exhibit was
way beyond our expecta-
tions," said exhibit coordi-
nator and guild member
Gloria Comstock. "But
quilts for this year look
even better."
During the exhibit open-
ing and on weekends
through its duration, the
guild will host demonstra-
tion tables for visitors to
observe various quilting
skills and techniques. Visi-
tors will also be able to
work together and design
their own quilts at an in-
teractive station within the
exhibit using different col-
ors, patterns and shapes.
In addition, Patricia Cox
Crews, director of the In-
ternational Quilt Study
Center and professor of
textile history and science
at the University of Ne-
braska, will speak during


the public opening. Her
presentation "Botany and
the American Quilt" will
be followed by a book
signing. Crews has pub-
lished more than 50 tech-
nical papers about the his-
tory, preservation and per-
formance of textiles.
Guild members have
created a striking applique
quilt of Florida birds and
water creatures to be fea-
tured in the exhibit. Pat-
terns for both the individ-
ual blocks and the full
quilt will be available for
purchase at the museum
gift shop.
Formed in 2003, the
Quilters of Alachua Coun-
ty Day Guild is a
501(c)(3) non-profit orga-
nization dedicated to edu-
cation and community ser-
vice. The group is com-
prised of more than 100
members ranging from


young mothers to retirees.
The guild meets at the
Westminster Presbyterian
Church in Gainesville on
the first Thursday of every
month. The quilters spon-
sor programs that teach
sewing skills and donate
many quilts and quilted
items to the Guardian ad
Litem program, Shands
Hospital in Gainesville
and the Interfaith Hospital-
ity Network.

- - - Q


Does My Child Need

Braces?


Genes are responsible for many
traits in a person. They'll determine
if you'll have brown eyes or blond
hair, and could dictate whether you
will be tall or short. Genes are also
largely responsible for dental
problems that could necessitate
orthodontic braces, something
many children need to correct
crooked teeth or bite issues.

Finding Out About Braces

Your family or pediatric dentist will
likely be the first person to point
out the need for braces. He or she
can usually recommend an
orthodontist who specializes in
children's teeth.

The Mechanics of Braces

Braces work by slowly forcing
teeth into a position the
orthodontist decides upon. Brackets
are glued onto the front (or rear,
lingual side for "invisible braces")
and then connected by an arch wire.
A buccal tube on the band of the
last molar holds the end of the arch
wire securely in place. At each
visit, the orthodontist will either
trim the wire or place a shorter wire
in place that draws the teeth
backward. The child might also
have to wear rubber bands or

headgear, a metal brace that fits into
slots in the brackets and wraps
around the head, pulling the front
teeth back for additional pressure.

When Is a Good Time for Braces?

It is not necessary to wait until your
child's permanent teeth are all in
place before investigating braces.
Many alignment problems and jaw
problems can be corrected while the
child is still growing. The majority
of children now get braces around
the age of nine.

Length of Treatment and Cost

Braces are worn between one and
three years depending upon the
severity of the problem and how
diligent the patient is regarding the
use of headgear or rubber bands, or
other treatment procedures. After
braces are removed, a retainer will
likely have to be used to maintain
the position of the teeth until
wisdom teeth have grown in -- or
even into adulthood. The cost of
braces ranges from $5,000 and up.
Less visible braces may cost more
because of their cosmetic nature.

A child will generally see the
orthodontist every month for
adjustments made to the hardware
in his or her mouth.

Are Braces Painful?

Most patients will experience mild
soreness after tightening
appointment or irritation from
friction with mouth tissues and the
metal hardware. Over-the-counter
pain medications can alleviate
soreness, while dental wax can
smooth over points of irritation.

Today's braces are smaller and
more advanced than in years past.
Therefore the wires and other
hardware used may cause less
discomfort.

BEETHOVEN MEETS B.B. KING

Corky Siegel's Chamber Blues come to NFCC Thursday


MADISON Is it blues, is it clas-
sical? Gritty Chicago blues and rar-
efied classical chamber music might
not seem like a match made in
Heaven until you hear composer
and harmonica virtuoso Corky
Siegel and his band bring the two
together. Don't miss Corky Siegel's
Chamber Blues described by crit-

Florida Community College on
Thursday, Jan. 21 at Van H. Priest
Auditorium, 7 p.m.

Chamber blues a fresh, innovative
sound capturing the sparkling quali-
ties of classical music merged with
the emotional melodic style of
blues, all within an intimate cham-
ber setting.
Under Corky's lead, The West
End String Quartet and percussion-
ist Frank Donaldson complete the
Chamber Blues Band. "Audiences


don't merely like it, they love it," -
The Banff Centre, Canada.
According to Siegel, "Chamber
Blues is a juxtaposition of classical
and blues flavors. Each form's per-
sonality is maintained. You can hear
them working together. That's
Chamber Blues." The Washington
Post calls Chamber Blues "a phe-
nomenon". Bill Kohlhaase of the
Los Angeles Times said it's "a gen-
uine hybrid ... complex ... clever
and ambitious," and Sing Out Mag-

lennium Stage to St. Peter's Basilica, these young men
have performed music from jazz to gospel and are sure
to have you on your feet, clapping to their wonderful
sound Feb. 6 at NFCC. The choir has won many awards
for their performances around the world and has been
featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show and the CBS Early
Morning Show among other achievements.
The choir was founded in 1995 for boys ages 8 to 18
who live in neighborhoods with limited social and eco-
nomic opportunities. The program's goal is to foster aca-
demic excellence, build character and self-esteem, devel-
op interpersonal skills and acquire skills for every choir
member for the future. The choir's motto, "No Excuses,"
sets the pace for its young men and thus far, every gradu-
ate of the program has been accepted into college. For

'The Local Show' now open


NFCC invites public to
exhibit reception Jan. 28


MADISON The North
Florida Community Col-
lege Art Department in-
vites the public to a recep-
tion on Thursday, Jan. 28
from 12 Noon-1:30 p.m. to
help celebrate its newest
exhibit entitled "The Local
Show" at the NFCC Hard-
ee Center for the Arts
(NFCC Bldg. 11).
"We invite community
members to stop by, spend
their lunch hour with us on
Jan. 28 and to enjoy works
by two local artists -
Deanna Wheeler of Pinetta
and Marshall Norris of
Greenville," said Lisa Bar-


den, NFCC Art Instructor.
"We encourage the public
to attend and show their
support for the arts."
The college's Sentinel
Caf6 (Student Center,
Bldg. 9) is offering chili
and a side salad as a spe-
cial menu item to help cel-
ebrate and the Hardee
Center for the Arts, just
steps away from the Stu-
dent Center, is offering
dessert items to visitors at
its artists' reception on
Thursday. Artists Marshall
Norris and Deanna Wheel-
er will both be on hand at
the reception to discuss


their work.
Artist Marshall Norris, a
native of Greenville, Fla.,
regularly tours his metal
sculptures and often
builds pieces to fit specif-
ic themes for shows, ex-
hibits or customers. His
art is located in every
state in the U.S. and in
over 20 foreign countries.
Norris and wife Barbara
operate the Artistic Things
by Marshall Gallery just a
few miles from where
Norris grew up in
Greenville. Norris has a
creative knack for turning
old metal pieces into art
and he says that almost
:ili, iliii.-. from metal


gears to springs, can be
recycled. Norris not only
creates sculptures, he also
does paintings and draw-
ings. According to Norris,
he was influenced at an
early age to be an artist
through school and
church. He became a pro-
fessional artist in 1990
and opened his business in
1998.
Artist Deanna Wheeler
of Pinetta is a self taught
artist "I was gifted with
my natural ability to draw
and paint, said Wheeler."
She is a member of the
Southern Artist League
and has participated in
several exhibits at the


Turner Center for the Arts
in Valdosta, Ga. A few
years ago the City of
Madison commissioned
Wheeler to create a por-
trait of James Madison.
The portrait is now on
permanent display at the
west entrance of the Madi-
son County Courthouse.
"I paint in a very realis-
tic style, using both oils
and acrylics, said Wheeler.
"My subject matter gener-
ally tends to be of horses,
dogs, cats and all manner
of animals."
Wheeler and her hus-
band have been residents
of Madison County for 15
years; their home and stu-


dio is located in Pinetta.
More information about
Wheeler's art is available
at www.Persimmon-
RidgeArt.com.
"The Local Show" ex-
hibit, open now ;i,,-i....-i
Feb. 26, and the artists'
reception Jan. 28 are both
open to the public. Regu-
lar hours for the NFCC
Hardee Center for the Arts
are Monday i,,..,,.i,
Thursday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

'History, Humor and the Human Condition'


An evening in High Springs with singer,

songwriter and storyteller Tom Shed


Time to Upgrade.


If youe s Iercng for that pert etof wheels,
lookno further than www.nflaonline.com


On Thursday, Feb. 11
Florida native Tom Shed
delivers a musical look at
the history and natural sur-
roundings of North Flori-
da. A man lost in the
swamp, rivers revealing
life's lessons, and a town
arising from ashes, are
some of the true stories of
our lives in Florida. Tom


ties the past, present and
our future together as we
experience nature's reac-
tion to our human experi-
ence.
The program begins at
7:30 p.m. at the Great Out-
doors Ballroom (2nd floor
of the Great Outdoors
Restaurant) in High
Springs. This free event is
open to the public and is
hosted by Save Our
Suwannee, Inc.
Shed has written &
played music for more
than 30 years. He performs
at concerts and folk festi-
vals across the US, includ-
ing Florida festivals such
as the Florida Folk Festi-
val, Will McLean Festival,
Gamble Rogers Festival,
and Ravine Gardens Festi-
val. Performing on guitar
and banjo throughout the
U.S., Canada, the
Caribbean, New Zealand
and Australia for many
years gives Tom his unique
perspective of life, love
and truth. Additionally
Tom has written and per-
formed sound tracks for
several films for television
including Marjorie Kinnan
Rawlings & the award
winning "Archie Carr, A
Naturalist in Florida". He
also produces albums for
fellow musicians. Most no-
tably "Walk Proud My
Son" for the late, Florida
folk icon and Native
American, Don Grooms.
Before Shed's perfor-
mance, Save Our Suwan-
nee will hold its annual
board member elections
and make an announce-
ment about the upcoming
Florida Springs Rally in
Tallahassee on Feb. 16.
This rally in Tallahassee
will give citizens who care
about the future of North
Florida springs an opportu-
nity to "be counted" by
our legislators who are on
the fence about protecting
our Springs. SOS wel-
comes one and all (new-
comers and life long lovers
of North Central Florida
springs and rivers) to come
out and have fun at this
down home music event
with Tom Shed.

'Theatre of Illusion' coming to

Lake City Community College

Staff
Get ready to see eyes popping and jaws dropping when "The Spencers Theatre
of Illusion" comes to Lake City Community College on Tuesday, Jan. 26. The
show begins at 7:30 p.m. in the college's Levy Performing Arts Center and is the
fourth show of LCCC's 2009-10 Lyceum Series.
"The Spencers Theatre of Illusion" has been applauded by audiences all over
the world, from North America to Asia to Australia. It's a high-tech stage show
replete with dazzling special effects, puzzling feats of legerdemain, cutting-edge
illusions, and knee-slapping comedy.

touring with the show for well over a decade and have been awarded many hon-
ors, including Programmers Arts Entertainers of the Year for a record-breaking
six consecutive years.

Id.c has been their most recent. Their peers

ii c duo "International Magicians of the
Yc.r" for 2009.
"I am really excited about the
Spencers bringing their show here,"
says Mark Kirby, coordinator of the
Levy performing Arts Center. "I've
seen a good deal of their act and the
things they can do are truly mind-
boggling. The only thing they're un-
able to do is put on a bad show.
They're terrific!"
The Spencers love touring. "Even
after having been on the road so long,
each town or city is a new adventure,"
says Kevin. "It's never boring because
there's always an air of excitement in
each new place we play."
Tickets for "The Spencers Theatre of
Illusion" are $15 for adults, $14 for se-
niors age 55 and over, and $13 for
LCCC staff and students, children, and
