Bullock

license

hearing

set for

April 6
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com
A hearing has been set for
April 6 to determine whether
local insurance agent Donald
Eugene Bullock gets to keep
his insurance license.
This comes after Bullock
pleaded guilty last June to
grand theft, felony fraud and
insurance fraud. The court
agreed to withhold adjudication
of guilt, and Bullock served no
additional jail time.
"Unless he gets the plea
agreement set aside,then the
prognosis of revocation of his
license is not good," said attor-
ney Julie Gallagher of Aker-
man Senterfitt law firm in Tal-
lahassee, who will represent
Bullock at the hearing.
She said scheduling for the
licensing hearing took consid-
erably longer in Bullock's case
because of the need to wait un-
til completion of the criminal
trial.
In regard to the plea deal, on
June 2, 2009, Bullock agreed to
pay more than $300,000 in
restitution, serve 15 years pro-
bation and perform 300 hours
of community service.
"At this point we're looking
at all Mr. Bullock's options,"

About 100 protest
legalized abortion
on 37th anniversary
of landmark case
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com
Nearly one hundred people gath-
ered at Millennium Park in down-
town Live Oak Friday morning for a
rally on the 37th anniversary of Roe
v. Wade, the landmark Supreme
Court case that legalized abortion.


Locals Kerry Palmer and Michelle
Lord decided the event was necessary
to remind people of the importance of
the abortion issue.
"We just wanted to do something
publicly to let people know we still
care about the issue of life," said
Lord, a mother of five.
The hour-long event gave several
local residents an opportunity to
share their personal family stories
and their opinions on the issue of
abortion.

Sinkhole forms
under Branford home
during rainstorm
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
A sinkhole opened up in Branford
during Thursday's downpour, partial-
ly undermining the foundation of a
280th Terrace mobile home.
Suwannee County Sheriff Tony
Cameron said about five other sink-
holes, none as bad, also opened up
throughout Suwannee County.
Cameron said no tornadoes were


confirmed here during the storm.
"We just had a few trees blown
down but we think it was just big
gusts of wind," said Cameron. "We
had a lot of sinkholes though."
Public Works Director Jerry Sikes
said one of those sinkholes opened up
on the walking trail near the intersec-
tion of Highway 129 and Highway
27. He said it would take a couple
dump truck loads to fill.
"It's about three to four foot wide,
and pretty deep," said Sikes.
Another hole was discovered not
far away on a county maintained

tion featuring stories and
tales of Florida's involve-
ment in the Civil War.
Guests are encouraged to
bring a flashlight to light
the path of history. This
part of the festivities will
be in conjunction with the
First Friday street party
sponsored by the Live Oak
Partnership downtown re-
vitalization committee.
Saturday's event will fea-
ture a day of family fun at
the museum. Special games
and activities are prepared
for the entire family, Local
entertainment, a video pre-
sentation of civil war histo-
ry, and pictorial and artifact
displays. The museum will
be open from 9 a.m. until 4

event, and bringing the fes-
tivities to a close, Grace

'Coupon Queen' makes its debut

in North Florida Focus A


Tough economic times are inspiring
shoppers to make dollars stretch any
way they can like using coupons.
Coupon clippers in Suwannee, Hamil-
ton and Lafayette counties are about to
be treated to a resource almost as handy
as a sharp pair of scissors.
A new column by Jill Cataldo, known
around the country as the "Coupon
Queen," makes its debut in the North
Florida Focus section on Wednesday,
Jan. 27 and Thursday, Jan. 28.
"Coupon Queen" will now appear
each week, running in the North Florida
Focus section.
Thanks to her crafty clipping, Cataldo
saves $40 to $60 per week on groceries.
Through her column, the mother of
three teaches readers clear, step-by-step
couponing strategies and explains tech-
niques such as stacking coupons, how
to take advantage of the 12-week cycle

50th wedding anniversary
The children and grandchildren of Alvin and Edith
Hamlin would like to invite you to the celebration of
their 50th wedding anniversary.
This special occasion will be held on Saturday, Febru-
ary 6, 2010 at "A Perfect Setting" building in Branford,

Cyber safety presentation
for schoolkids
Suwannee County schools and the Attorney General's
office are teaming up to educate parents about the impor-
tance of cyber safety. Every day 77 million children use
the Internet and, of children ages 10-17, one out of every
seven will be sexually solicited online. In 2007, Florida
Attorney General Bill McCollum's Cyber Safety Educa-
tion Program debuted at middle and high schools across
the state, including our own Suwannee Middle and High
School and Branford High School. During the interactive
50-minute presentation, students learn about the risks of
and tactics used by online predators as well as what con-
stitutes a cyber crime and how to report it. The program
is presented by specially trained members of the Attorney
General's team.
The Attorney General's office now has a team that
teaches parents how to identify potential threats that
could endanger their child as well as important tips and
safety measures. It is designed with parents in mind as
they pursue their primary responsibility of protecting the
youngest members of their family. For more information,
resources and tips, visit www.safeflorida.net.
Please join us at the First United Methodist Church of
Live Oak on Feb. 18 at 6 pm. The event is FREE and
everyone is welcome to attend. For more information,
please contact Lisa Garrison, Suwannee County Schools
Parent Liaison, at 386-647-4623.

Antibiotics for Pneumonia Prevention
Pneumonia is an inflammation of the lungs. It is caused by an infection.
Although pneumonia can occur at any age, persons over 65 years of age
are more likely to be affected. Persons who smoke are also at an
increased risk of developing pneumonia. Symptoms may be similar to
the flu, including a cough and fever. Other common symptoms include


shortness of breath, sweating, chills, and muscle pain. Community-
acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a specific type of pneumonia that is
commonly acquired at school or work. This type of pneumonia is
commonly caused by the bacteria streptococcus pneumoniae.
A family of antibiotics, which include azithromycin (Zithromax) and
clarithromycin (Biaxin), may be prescribed for those who were healthy
prior to pneumonia infection. For individuals with other conditions at
the time of the infection, such as diabetes or a chronic heart condition, a
fluoroquinolone-type antibiotic, such as moxifloxacin (Avelox) or
levofloxacin (Levaquin) may be prescribed. Alternatively, a
combination of a beta-lactam antibiotic, such as amoxicillin (Amoxil),
and an antibiotic like azithromycin may be prescribed. In addition,
persons 65 years of age and older and others with chronic conditions are
recommended to receive the pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine.

THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLER



A worthy



idea?

By Jim Holmes
I took a vow years ago. I swore that if I ever
moved into a new community, I would NEVER say
something like this to long-time residents: "Well,
back home we did it this way and it was better." To
make the statement even more memorable, the
comment was usually delivered to me in a conde-
scending tone suggesting the speaker felt he was
talking to someone with the IQ of a turnip.
Until three years ago, I spent most of my life in
the South Florida town of Fort Pierce, located in
Saint Lucie County, and I hated it when new ar-
rivals did that to me. I always wanted to respond,
"Feel free to head back to where you did it so well
and leave us simpletons alone."
Well, I hope I don't break my vow today, but if
you think I do, I ask for your forgiveness.
This column is prompted by the recent an-
nouncement by the Suwannee Democrat that in the
coming year, it will give special attention to the
thorny issue of consolidating the Live Oak and
Suwannee County fire departments so as to save
tax dollars.
OK, here's where I start telling you about how
Saint Lucie County tackled the same issue back in
1959. And I think it important to point out that back
then, the population, tax base, economy and life
style of Saint Lucie was virtually identical to what
we have here today.
Leaders in Saint Lucie convinced the state legis-
lature to create a countywide fire tax district, which
was not under the direct control of either the coun-
ty or the city of Fort Pierce. Instead, its operation,
finances and governing authority were placed un-
der the control of a five-member board consisting
of two county commissioners, two Fort Pierce city
commissioners and a member-at-large appointed
by the governor. (Two Port Saint Lucie City Coun-
cil members were added to the fire board later,
when that municipality came into its own.)
The concept seems to have worked amazingly
well in Saint Lucie County. Yes, there are adminis-
trative tax savings to be had by this approach. Of
greater importance in the long run, however, is the
fact that an independent fire board focuses on is-
sues solely related to fire protection and funding it.
This frees the county and city governments to focus
on the many other challenges facing them.
Yet another important benefit in Saint Lucie
County is that feuds between city and county gov-
ernments (and over the years there have been some
big ones) never seemed to adversely impact fire
board business. There have been times when city
and county elected officials in Saint Lucie would
barely speak to one another over matters like an-
nexation. But those differences were not evident
when the same officials met for fire board meet-
ings.
I don't know if this approach would work for
Live Oak and Suwannee County. But as a resident
who loves this area and worries about how safe
his home is from fire I think I would be remiss
if I didn't at least put the idea out there so folks -
more qualified than I might evaluate its local
merit.
City and county governments are expected to
provide their residents with certain basic services.
Public safety including the best possible fire
protection tops any list. I have nothing but re-
spect for our local firefighters both fulltime and
volunteer but I think we need to find a better
way of protecting ourselves from fire. I suspect our
firefighters would be among the first to agree.
Jim Holmes lives in Live Oak.

FROM OUR READERS


To the Editor:

Independent, aggressive and critical media are essential to an informed
Republic. But mainstream media are increasingly cozy with the econom-
ic and political powers they should be watch dogging. Mergers in the
news industry have accelerated, further limiting the spectrum of view-
points that have access to mass media. With U.S. media outlets over-
whelmingly owner by for-profit conglomerates and supported by corpo-
rate advertisers, independent journalism is compromised.
The Suwannee Democrat, Suwannee County's main media outlet is
owned by one of those mergers, for-profit conglomerates and supported
by corporate advertisers. Don't get me wrong, you have to have money
and a lot of it to buy the ink and paper to provide the news and this is done
through advertisers.
There is an upward trend in the average tendency to endorse a candi-
date, and in particular an incumbent one, is now being adopted by our own
media outlet the Suwannee Democrat. I just imagine they will continue
the average ideological slant of endorsements systematically giving more
coverage to Democratic topics of civil rights, health care, labor and social
welfare.
The Suwannee Democrat has adopted that ideological slant, just look at
their Thursday, January 07, 2010 edition. 31 1/2 column inches were spent
on "Boyd suits up for 2010." Did you see the incumbent's challenger an-
nouncement to run? Probably not, because it was on the fourth page, and
if I recall right it was only 4 column inches.
In the same edition, on the front page the Democrat pushes its views -
to endorse candidates, right along side Boyd's half page picture. What the
Democrat does not know is that we know that they have been endorsing
already and some of us resent it. Yes they have been endorsing systemat-
ically since the new owners (a corporate conglomerate) took over.
I voted for Allen Boyd, I just believe in newspaper standards, like fair-
ness and accuracy in reporting. Under this standard, taking sides on an is-
sue would be permitted as long as the side taken was accurate and the oth-
er side was given a fair chance to respond. Many professionals believe
that true objectivity in journalism is not possible and reporters must seek
balance in their stories (giving all sides their respective points of view),
which fosters fairness.
Is there balance in the Suwannee D. ,,. ,1 You tell me if it's balanced
when they tell us how to vote and what needs to be done to turn this coun-
ty around. You see, the media really thinks we need to be told who to vote
for and tell our Commissioners what to do. Well that's understandable -
just look at the thinking of one Commissioner "What's one point on our
ISO ratings." (God help us).
Please don't give me idle rhetoric and your point of view on the news
page Suwannee Democrat.
I believe we need objective journalism. Journalistic objectivity can re-
fer to fairness, factuality and nonpartisanship, but most often encompass-
es all of these qualities. Oh well, just be objective in your reading.

The Democrat

responds
The Suwannee Democrat is owned by
Community Newspaper Holdings, Inc., a
Birmingham-based company, but oper-
ates with complete editorial indepen-
dence. We recommend you visit
www.cnhi.com/newspapers/ and peruse
the Web pages of our sister publications.
Each is as varied as the community it
serves, and beholden only to its readers.
Now on to Allen Boyd. Like it or not,
a visit from a U.S. Congressman is news.
Boyd is one of 435 men and women with
enormous power over the daily lives of
every American. His opinion on health-
care legislation back when a final vote
on that contentious issue appeared immi-
nent was surely of great interest to our
readers, whatever their political lean-
ings.
Note, too, that under questioning from
the Democrat, Boyd admitted he might
change his original "no" vote on health-
care to an "aye," depending on how the
bill was altered during House/Senate
conference sessions. Surely this was
Page One news to local voters, many of
whom strongly oppose both versions of
the bill.
As for endorsing local candidates, we
made clear from the start that ours was-
n't the only voice that mattered. Here's
what we had to say, in case you missed
it:

"With each endorsement will come a
careful explanation of the .. ,..,-i *iI.. be-
hind it. That doesn't mean we expect you
to take our word for it, ;,ii. '-it.. Your job
is to i ..-Ii our opinion ,..' ti -t own
;i,...lb-.i, and observations, then make a
choice that reflects your values.
If your opinion matches ours, fine. If
not, that's fine too. As always, you will
be welcome to share your views, either in
a Letter to the Editor, a submission to
Rant & Rave, or online in our Facebook
forum."
From "A new era for the
Democrat," Jan. 8, 2010, Page lA.


As for your final point, Mr. Hender-
son, you're right about bias in the media.
It's always been there and always will
be. We don't believe you'll find it in our
pages we make a clear distinction be-
l tween news and opinion, and label each
rs accordingly.
Nonetheless, we welcome your input.
S As you note, the free exchange of ideas
remains essential to the health of the Re-
public.

North Central

Florida 9-12 Project

meets, makes plans
By Sharon H '*....-' .
Despite heavy downpours and a tornado watch,
120 people came to the first meeting of the year for
the North Central Florida 9-12 Project on Jan. 21, at
the Vineyard Church in Lake City.
It was a night of doing a bit of reorganizing; we
had a short survey for our members and guests to
fill out in an effort to determine which issues are
most important to work on in the near future.
We had two guest speakers. John Knapp gave a
short talk on a project he is working on. He is going
to have a billboard painted encouraging people to
make a change when they vote in 2010. His hope is
to have the billboard completed by the first part of
February and then hold a short TEA party below it
on the first Saturday following the completion. The
billboard will be located on 1-75 near the Cannon
Host Larry Geiger, public relations coordinator for Hospice of the Nature Coast. Air Park.
Our next speaker was Bob Root from Perry. He
gave us information about a national movement
called "Fire Fifty." This is a novel idea to identify
and elect conservative, constitutionally-minded indi-
viduals to certain seats of Congress. These seats
have been determined to be vulnerable in the com-
ing election. He showed a video of a candidate that
they have identified in South Florida s being just the
-, type of candidate they are looking for. The idea is to
get at least 50 of these type people in office, behold-
en to neither part, nor special interests. Once elect-
Aed, these people will hold a lot of power, requiring
the leaders of both parties to have to work with
them in order to pass any legislation. For more in-
formation on this movement, go to
www.firefifty.com.
We look forward to a busy year; our next big en-
deavor is to have a booth at the Olustee Festival and
hand out information about our group. We will be
handing out pocket constitutions and other informa-
tion about the things going on in our government, in
an effort to reach many more people and give them
tools to help make a difference.

Continued From Page 1A

Eric Musgrove, Suwan-
nee County historian,
along with wife Sarah,
shared their story of being
faced with the decision to
either terminate a pregnan-
cy or chose life for their
unborn child.
A few years ago, the
Musgroves learned during
one of their pregnancies
that Sarah had developed
preeclampsia, a condition
pregnant woman experi-
ence resulting in high
blood pressure and other
symptoms.
"The doctors recom-
mended abortion," Eric
Musgrove told the crowd.
"My wife and I are Chris-
tians and not in favor of
killing babies," he said.
Faced with a tough deci-
sion and the risk of losing
both Sarah and the baby,
the couple decided to fol-
low through with their
pregnancy.
"We were going to do
the best to preserve this un-
born life, and preserve both
lives," he said.
Hannah Angel Musgrove
was born on July 7, 2002,
but only lived for a few
hours. The Musgroves
stood proud of their deci-
sion.
"We don't have that wor-
ry that we murdered our
baby, that fear, we don't
have that," Eric said.
They now have a son
Alex, age 6, and daughter
Abigail, 9 months, whom
they adopted in 2009. They
encouraged others to con-
sider adoption, both unpre-
pared pregnant mothers
and those wanting a child.
"When you hear their lit-
tle heartbeats on monitors,
I just don't see how people
can go through with abor-
tion," he said.
Organizer Michelle Lord
read a letter taken from the
Web site silentnomore.org
chronicling the emotions
of a young mother who
chose abortion.
It said, "I knew that the


girl that I was died the day
my baby was aborted. It
was an unspeakable bur-
den, and the shame was a
memorial of the worst kind
for my child."
Donna Sandage, execu-
tive director of the Preg-
nancy Care Center in Live
Oak, said for so many un-
prepared mothers, there is
nowhere to turn, but that is
not the case here in Suwan-
nee County.
The center offers free
pregnancy tests, counsel-
ing, post-abortion healing
programs and community
support and referrals, just
to name a few of the re-
sources they provide.
"Seven hundred and nine
woman came through our
Live Oak Center last year,"
Sandage said. "We want
you to know that we're
here to help."
As the event progressed,
there was music, a poetry
reading and information ta-
bles available with litera-
ture.
Suzanne Riordan, a
mother of four who attend-
ed the event with her chil-
dren, said, "We're pro-life,
we love babies."
Her 4-year-old son Fran-
cis stood beside her hold-
ing a sign with the mes-
sage: "Abortion Kills Chil-
dren."
As the event came to a
close, Julie Ulmer, school
board member for District
3, shared her personal
adoption story with the
crowd.
"I had two sets of parents
- one that brought me into
the world and another who
raised me," she said. "My
life had a purpose 41 years
ago, and had I been born
just a few years later, with
the passage of Roe v.
Wade, I might not be here."
Ulmer, an educator, who
has worked relentlessly on
issues involving children,
said, "I love what I do
every day because I know
that God created me with a
purpose, as He does with
all his children."

by a 2008 DEP report that
approximately 1,000 miles
of rivers and streams,
350,000 acres of lakes and
900 square miles of estuar-
ies are not meeting the
state's water quality stan-
dards due to excess nitro-
gen and phosphorus, which
are nutrients. Nutrient pol-
lution can damage drinking
water and create health
risks and increase algal
blooms, which can be dan-
gerous to both humans and
animals.
Some state officials have
said this most recent move
was to pacify outraged en-
vironmentalists. Some
have gone even further,
saying the standards are not
based on science. At a No-
vember town hall meeting
in Branford, Farm Bureau
Director of Government
and Community Affairs
Staci Braswell called the
deadlines for setting the
EPA standards "hasty" and
"litigation driven."
However, EPA assistant
administrator Benjamin

DEP last year that EPA felt

Dowling Park resident

tion were to be corrected
and Florida's waterways
protected.
"Despite Florida's wide-
ly recognized efforts, sub-
stantial water quality
degradation from nutrient
over-enrichment remains a
significant challenge in the
state and one that is likely
to worsen with continued
population growth and en-
vironmental and land-use
changes," wrote Grumbles.
Peter S. Silva, assistant
administrator for EPA's Of-
fice of Water, said, "New
water quality standards, de-
veloped in collaboration
with the state, will help
protect and restore inland
waters that are a critical
part of Florida's history,
culture and economic pros-
perity."
The proposed EPA
guidelines establish a nu-
meric "one size fits all"
limit for nitrogen and phos-
phate. The state had argued
at the November town hall
meeting that most of Flori-
da's water bodies were
unique and a single set of
standards for all Florida
waterways, such as that
proposed by the EPA, was
not reasonable.


"It is very difficult to set
one standard for the whole
state," Suwannee River
Water Management Execu-
tive Director David Still
said in November. "The
standard will not be achiev-
able if it is not based on sci-
ence and unique to differ-
ent districts and different
parts of the state."
After reviewing the pro-
posed standards, Still said
Thursday that SWRMD
does not embrace the EPA's
stance.
"We do not agree with
their (earlier) decision or
their decision prior to that,"
said Still.
He said SRWMD re-
mains in favor of a "narra-
tive" approach, in which
standards are tailored to
specific regions.
But despite the state's
best efforts, environmen-
talists like Annette Long
of Save Our Suwannee say
DEP was "foot-dragging."
"I'm sorry it had to
come to this," said Long.
"But I'm pleased. The
EPA standards appear to
be very close to the same
as what DEP was consider-
ing. This should help DEP
move forward."
Leslie Kurtz, co-owner
of Kurtz Dairy Farm in
Live Oak, said she does
not think the new regula-
tions will hurt her farm.
"We are in tune to work-
ing with nature," said
Kurtz. The Kurtzes gather
the farm's manure in a la-
goon and recycle it as fer-
tilizer. In addition, they
grass-feed their dairy
cows. "I think if more
farmers work with nature,
they will make less prob-
lems."
However, the problem
of nutrient pollution has
not been helped by the
dairy crisis, Kurtz noted.
Due to low milk prices,
Kurtz said farmers are be-
ing forced to add more
cows so as to increase their
profits, further increasing

Florida Farm Bureau
Assistant Director of Gov-
ernment Affairs Charles
Shinn said that is where
his agency comes into
play.
"We're trying to get the
word out," said Shinn.
"We are quite concerned.
We think these standards
could have a tremendous
impact on the ability of
Florida agriculture to pro-
duce crops."
Shinn says the EPA's
"one size fits all" approach
will put Florida farmers at
a disadvantage compared
to other states.
"The potential negative
impact this will have is off
the scale," he said.
As of Tuesday, FDEP
would not comment other
than in a prepared state-
ment.
"We continue to review
the draft rule that EPA just
released," FDEP spokes-
woman Dee Ann Miller
said. "As we review it, we
encourage Florida scien-
tists and water quality
managers to also engage in
assessing and commenting
on the proposed criteria. It
is critical that those who
are knowledgeable of
Florida waters share infor-
mation on the state's
unique ecosystems with
EPA scientists to best in-
form their decisions in the
future."
The EPA will hold hear-
ings on Feb. 16, 17 and 18
in Tallahassee, Orlando,
and West Palm Beach, re-
spectively.

By Cody Webb
Music has
inspired all sorts
of rhythm games,
like the top-tier
Guitar Hero and
Rock Band
games, but very
rarely do they
inspire an
adventure game world to
be built around them. Tim
Schafer, one of the quirkier
people in the gaming
business, and his team at
Double Fine have crafted a
world built just for fans of
metal music. They call this
metalhead world: "Brutal
Legend." As with most of
the games I talk about
here, Brutal Legend is
rated M for Mature due to
blood, gore and excessive
cursing. Basically,
everything you'd expect
from a game inspired by
heavy metal. It's
worth mentioning that the
game does give you the
option to censor the bad
language and turn off the
gore. However, in my
opinion the game loses
much of its intended
atmosphere this way.
Either way, be careful
when your kid asks for this
title. Brutal Legend
tells the story of Eddie
Riggs, the "world's best
roadie." He's known for
being able to build
:ili, Illiiii-. fix anything and
get anything. The game
starts with him watching
the last "heavy metal"
band, whom he works for,
playing a song that in no
way could be considered
metal. However, when one
of the bandmates attempts
to do a stupid stunt, Eddie
gets injured while trying to
rescue him. When some of
his blood happens to drip

onto his belt
buckle, he
gets
transported to
the "Age of
Metal."
This "Age
of Metal" is
definitely one
of the high
points of the game: it is a
world composed of
mountains made from
skulls, half-metal animals
and all sorts of metal icons
littering the landscape. It's
not hard to lose yourself in
this world, spending hours
finding the many metal
landmarks to net yourself
extra fan tributes to buy
upgrades with. It doesn't
hurt that the amazing
artists at Double Fine did a
stellar job of crafting a
unique art style for this
equally unique world.
What good would such a
unique world be without
interesting characters and
awesome music to fill it?
Fortunately for gamers,
that question will have to
be answered another day.
Eddie Riggs is easily one
of more likable
protagonists of 2009, and
Double Fine couldn't have
found a better voice actor
for him than Jack Black.
Other famous folk appear
as friend and foe to Eddie,
such as The Guardian of
Metal, who is the one and
only Ozzy Osbourne! Tim
Curry does a fantastic job
of voicing Emperor
Doviculus, the antagonist
of the game.
As for music, it's clear
that the developers went
through album after album
to find the best of the best
metal. From Black Sabbath
to Judas Priest, the music
in Brutal Legend spans


several years of metal
masterpieces. One of the
best experiences I had
while playing was when I
was just cruising around in
the car whilst listening to
the various songs.
Unfortunately, however,
the gameplay itself isn't as
perfect as the world you
run around in. Combat is
simple, one button controls
Eddie's axe for melee
attacks and another
controls his guitar for
ranged attacks. You can
bring up a solo menu and
play a solo to gain a step
up on your enemies or to
wipe them out with one
awesome rockin' solo.
These controls work well
for an action game, but
Brutal Legend also
combines in "Stage
Battles," which are large-
scale RTS-style sequences.
The goal of these is to
gather fans as resources to
build a massive army, then
to destroy your enemy's
stage with said army.
These moments are fun,
but it can be hard to
control and manage units
effectively. In the end,
however, these issues are
small compared to the
hilarious, and even serious,
storyline, the interesting
characters and the massive
world just filled with
secrets and unlockables. If
you consider yourself a fan
of the metal genre of
music, and own a PS3 or
360, you should look into
Brutal Legend. I'll give it a
B+, and remember gamers,
you can always check on
Xbox Marketplace for
downloadable content
(DLC) for any game that is
out.

te Cupid Shuffle

This is the story of a man who found love after ? .
changing his smile. We will call him Mr. X for the
sake of his privacy.
Mr. X was a hard-working, professional salesman
whose job paid him well. He had a nice home, two
cars, and all the other material things that indicated,
"This guy is doing well for himself." The sad fact was,
Mr. X was alone and becoming an expert in the field of loneliness. Success was easy
over the phone as a high-stakes salesman. It was being around a person face-to-face
that was holding Mr. X in failure.
Mr. X was embarrassed and afraid to smile because he felt so ugly and self-conscious
about his teeth. It had started around middle school and gotten worse as time went
on. Now in his early thirties, Mr. X was depressed and feeling like things would
never change.
It was a toothache that finally got Mr. X into Smile Designs. After talking to Dr.
Gerry, Mr. X took advantage of our high quality "One Price Smile Makeover" and
received what he called a "Dental Miracle". He was not just proud of his amazing
smile; he was a self-described "new man"!
Mr. X started to take advantage of this new lease on
life. He was opening up to people like never before.
N Within two months, it happened--LOVE! Mr. X met
the girl of his dreams.
Improving your smile can bring Cupid's arrows right
to your heart. We have helped so many people like
Mr. X and we can help you, too. Come on in to Smile

Scenes from the Billy Saylor tournament


District champs


By Jennifer Byrd

The Suwannee High School girls soc-
cer team became District champs Jan.
22 after beating Santa Fe 2-0.
Suwannee went into the game as the
number one seed in the district, but
Santa Fe brought on a fight to only dis-
cover the 'Dogs had what it took.
Jessie TenBroeck made the first goal
of the night with an assist from Amber
Morgan. Five minutes later a beautiful
cross from Shannon Wood up to Ten-
Broeck put the second score on the
board.
This was a very defensive game
where the defense section had to be on


the ball. However, Ashley Byrd, Kelsey
Curls, Megan Futch, Natalie Pecina,
Marianna Rosalio and Abbie Wotton
stepped up to the plate and played like
never before. The energy was hot on the
fields as well as in the stands.
Midfielders and wings, Logan
Bonds, Camill Chambliss and Lindsay
Michal had hustle on their mind as they
fought for the ball to pass to the for-
wards.
Goalie Autumn Summerfield had an
amazing night making 14 keeper saves.
The girls will play Regionals Thurs-
day at 7 p.m. at Langford Stadium in
Live Oak. Come out and support your
Lady 'Dogs.

Last week
you thought I
forgot about the /
SHS girls
soccer team.
Well I couldn't say much
until they went to
Newberry and won their
district. The girls will be
hosting a regional game
this week at Langford
Stadium. The boys will be
hosting districts. Check
the Democrat online for
schedules. Hint, boys play
Tuesday at 7. The New
Orleans Saints will be
going to their first Super
Bowl. In case you didn't
know, the Detroit Lions,
Cleveland Browns,


Houston Texans and our
own Jaguars have never
been. No longer the Aints.
It couldn't have happened
to a better team.
In the wake of losing,
the Vikings have spared
us the endless Brett Favre
stories. If Brett had pulled
it down with 19 seconds
left and scrambled 10
yards out of bounds he
might be going. The
Vikings would have a
shot for a 45-yard field
goal. No, he threw an
INT, kind of like his last
game as a Packer. Yeah, I
know, if wishes were
horses then beggars
would ride. Where did I
hear that?
Now that we don't have

Brett to immortalize it will
be Peyton Manning's turn
... again. I still hope they
lose for giving up on an
undefeated season. No
offense, Peyton, but that
will suck forever.
Put this together in your
conspiracy theory. Drew
Brees was let go by San
Diego. San Diego drafted
Eli Manning. They could
have drafted Ben
Roethlisberger or Phillip
Rivers. San Diego trades
Eli for Rivers, passes on


Big Ben. Eli, Ben and now
Drew will all have gone to
the Super Bowl. Rivers
does go to the Pro Bowl,
Eli and Ben don't. If
Peyton had come out for
the draft his junior year he
would have been picked by
San Diego. Junior Seau,
who played in the San
Diego Super Bowl loss,
also was on the Patriots
team that lost to Eli. San
Diego is the team that lost
to the Jets, who the Colts
lost to in the regular
season to not go
undefeated, but beat to get
to the Super Bowl. You
thought "Where is Carmen
San Diego" was only a
game. The only thing
missing in this plot is a


grassy knoll and a birth
certificate.
The Super Bowl will be a
week from this Sunday. In
the meantime get out to
Langford Stadium and
catch the soccer matches.


ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: How can I tell if I'm getting gum disease?
A: By the time you suspect you may have
gum disease, also called periodontal
disease, the condition may be well
advanced. The only way you would know in
the early stage of the disease is if your
dentist tells you so. At the outset, there is
normally no pain or other symptoms. Only a
dental exam can determine if the disease is
present. As it advances, gum disease can
make the gum tissue g separate from the
teeth. This creates pockets pocketsin which bacteria
can settle. Once entrenched, the disease
attacks the tissue and bone that support the
teeth. Advanced cases of periodontal
disease can severely loosen teeth.
The good news is that the disease is
eminently preventable. Regular brushing,
flossing and visits to the dentist can greatly
reduce your changes of developing
penodontal disease. Women, incidentally,
because of the vanous changing phases of
life, are at greater nsk for gum disease. From
the onset of menstruation through the
teenage years, pregnancy and menopause,
a women's hormonal changes affect her oral
health. The reason is that hormones impact
the plaque bactena that grow on the teeth
and in the mouth. Talk with your dentist
about the best practices to avoid gum
disease.

Medieval Hoggetowne's on the way


24th annual Faire set for


this weekend and next
As you enter the gates of Hoggetowne the sound of
trumpets will transport you to a time where brave knights
joust for the honor of their ladies and Robin Hood and
his Merry Men must battle the forces of evil. It is here at
Hoggetowne that the spirit of the Middle Ages is relived.
Come be swept away with medieval magic at the 24th
annual Hoggetowne Medieval Faire on Jan. 30-31 & Feb.
5-7. Tucked away in the enchanted forest of the Alachua
County Fairgrounds in Gainesville, on the last weekend
in January and first weekend in February, a medieval
marketplace comes to life as troupes of actors, street per-
formers and musicians journey back to the days of yore.
The bustling medieval marketplace will showcase
more than 160 talented artisans from all over the country-
side who will demonstrate their old-time skills and sell
their traditional wares. At the marketplace visitors can
marvel at time-honored traditions of weaving, black-
smithing, leatherworking, woodcarving, glass blowing
and jewelry making. Guests can visit one of Hogge-
towne's mysterious fortune-tellers to learn the secrets of
their future or an artisan to create intricate henna body
art.
"To take full advantage of the exciting medieval mag-
ic, visitors should arrive early," said Linda Piper, Faire
coordinator. "Each morning all the entertainers are up
front to welcome the Hoggetowne guests as the city gates
open to this magical kingdom."
Throughout the streets of Hoggetowne the sounds of
applause and laughter will draw you into one of the nine
stages where the forgotten skills of full flight falconry,
gripping aerial acrobatics and astonishing magic acts are
brought back to life. Jugglers, musicians and dancers fill
the streets and stages with continuous live revelry a
medley including gypsy dancing, ancient music, mystify-
ing magic, knife throwing and fire eating. Performers
mingle with the crowds as the atmosphere fills with the
sweet Medieval sounds of minstrels, harpists and many
"olde world" instruments.
"Plan to spend the entire day at Hoggetowne. There is
so much to see and do, you'll be entertained the whole
time," Piper said. "People wait all year for this highly an-
ticipated event.
Hoggetowne is fun for the whole family with fabulous
entertainment featuring a variety of the best performers
nationwide. Twice a day the trumpets will sound, visitors
and peasants alike are invited to join the king and
queen's royal procession to the Tournament Field for the
royal joust.
Hands-on activities are plentiful in Hoggetowne. Visi-
tors can shoot arrows, hurl battle axes, or launch throw-
ing stars into targets. Thrilling human-powered push
rides, camel rides, and elephant rides attract long lines of
both eager children and adventurous adults. The astound-
ing "Birds of Prey" show features trained hawks and fal-
cons that perform for the pleasure of the crowds.
One of the Faire's most notable attractions is the joust,
where knights in full body armor charge each other on
horseback battling for the honor of their ladies. After the

Medical practitioners and researchers
increasingly tout the benefits of music for a
variety of people suffering with pain, including
women in labor, burn victims and patients
recovering from surgery.
Medical studies demonstrate the ability of
music to enhance well-being, reduce stress and
anxiety, encourage relaxation, and alleviate
pain. Music is believed to direct physiologic
effects through the autonomic nervous system,
such as causing the release of endorphins that
suppress pain.
While music has been utilized for healing for
centuries, it is only during the past 20 years that
music therapy has emerged as an established
health profession.
Today, the American Medical Association
accepts music therapy as a component of
medical care, and music is currently used in

medical settings to address physical, emotional
and cognitive needs of individuals. In 1991, 90-
year old Ida Goldman who walked with
assistance to testify before the Senate
demonstrated the value of music for pain,
"Before I had surgery, they told me I could
never walk again. But when I sat and listened to
music, I forgot all about the pain."
Several studies from noted medical journals
support Goldman's experience. And the
research has led to an increased use of music in
hospitals.
This year, the growing trend of using music to
help women reduce the pain of labor inspired
top artists such as The Dixie Chicks to donate
music to a benefit CD of soothing songs for the
March of Dimes called "Stork Tunes: Songs for
A Happy Birth Day," which was specifically
compiled to appeal to moms in labor.

Medieval Hoggetowne's on the way


ABOVE: Medieval music at a previous Hoggetowne Medieval Faire.
LEFT: Plenty of folks will be in character for the Faire. Courtesy photos


joust, children are encouraged to meet the
knights and their magnificent steeds. Another ex-
citing performance at Hoggetowne is the Living
Chess Match, where Robin Hood and his Merry
Men battle the Sheriff of Nottingham with human
chess pieces fighting for their spot on the board
and victory over their opponents.
Take a break from shopping and shows to in-
dulge in a hearty feast fit for a king. Beyond the
marketplace is the food court, where tempting
aromas entice fairgoers. Tasty bloomin' onions,
fresh-baked pastries, sweet potato fries, giant
turkey legs and succulent ribs are just a sample
of what's in store.
On Friday, Feb. 5, Hoggetowne hosts School
Day, an educational experience for students.
Thousands of students from all over Florida will
make a trip to the Faire for an exciting experi-
ence, full of fun activities such as face painting,
hair braiding and creating wax hands. On this


day, general admission is half price, and larger
discounts are available to school groups that reg-
ister in advance.
"It's so great to be able to provide this educa-
tional opportunity to children who are learning
about medieval studies in their schools," Piper
said. "This is a chance for students to see the
Middle Ages come to life."
The Hoggetowne Medieval Faire is produced
by the City of Gainesville's Department of Parks,
Recreation and Cultural Affairs. On Saturdays
and Sundays, Faire hours are from 10 a.m. to 6
p.m. and admission is $14 for adults, $7 for ages
5-17 and free for children 4 and under. On
School Day, Friday, Feb. 5, the Faire hours are
from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and tickets are half-
price. Remember, no pets are permitted. The
Alachua County Fairgrounds is situated east of
Gainesville on 39th Avenue and SR 121, adjacent
to the Gainesville Regional Airport. For more in-
formation, visit www.gvlculturalaffairs.org or

ACROSS THE MULTIVERSE

FSU PHYSICIST CONSIDERS THE BIG PICTURE

FSU's Alejandro Jenkins writes in 'Scientific American' that life may exist in other universes


TALLAHASSEE Is there anybody
out there? In Alejandro Jenkins' case,
the question refers not to whether life
exists elsewhere in the universe, but
whether it exists in other universes out-
side of our own.
While that might be a mind-blowing
concept for the layperson to ponder, it's
all in a day's work for Jenkins, a post-
doctoral associate in theoretical high-
energy physics at The Florida State
University. In fact, his deep thoughts
on the hypothetical "multiverse" think
of it as a mega-universe full of numer-
ous smaller universes, including our
own are now receiving worldwide at-
tention, thanks to a cover article he co-
wrote for the January 2010 issue of
Scientific American magazine.
In "Looking for Life in the Multi-
verse," Jenkins and co-writer Gilad
Perez, a theorist at the Weizmann Insti-
tute of Science in Israel, discuss a
provocative hypothesis known as the
anthropic principle, which states that
the existence of intelligent life (capable
of studying physical processes) impos-
es constraints on the possible form of
the laws of physics.
"Our lives here on Earth in fact,
everything we see and know about the
universe around us depend on a pre-
cise set of conditions that makes us
possible," Jenkins said. "For example,
if the fundamental forces that shape
matter in our universe were altered
even slightly, it's conceivable that
atoms never would have formed, or
that the element carbon, which is con-
sidered a basic building block of life as
we know it, wouldn't exist. So how is
it that such a perfect balance exists?
Some would attribute it to God, but of
course, that is outside the realm of
physics."
The theory of "cosmic inflation,"


which was developed in the 1980s in
order to solve certain puzzles about the
structure of our universe, predicts that
ours is just one of countless universes
to emerge from the same primordial
vacuum. We have no way of seeing
those other universes, although many
of the other predictions of cosmic infla-
tion have recently been corroborated by
astrophysical measurements.
Given some of science's current
ideas about high-energy physics, it is
plausible that those other universes
might each have different physical in-
teractions. So perhaps it's no mystery
that we would happen to occupy the
rare universe in which conditions are
just right to make life possible. This is
analogous to how, out of the many
planets in our universe, we occupy the
rare one where conditions are right for
organic evolution.
"What theorists like Dr. Perez and I
do is tweak the calculations of the fun-
damental forces in order to predict the
resulting effects on possible, alternative
universes," Jenkins said. "Some of
these results are easy to predict; for ex-
ample, if there was no electromagnetic
force, there would be no atoms and no
chemical bonds. And without gravity,
matter wouldn't coalesce into planets,
stars and galaxies.
"What is surprising about our results
is that we found conditions that, while
very different from those of our own
universe, nevertheless might allow -
again, at least hypothetically for the
existence of life. (What that life would
look like is another story entirely.) This
actually brings into question the useful-
ness of the anthropic principle when
applied to particle physics, and might
force us to think more carefully about
what the multiverse would actually
contain."


"Having an article in Scientific
American is a magnificent accomplish-
ment, but being selected for the cover
story is special indeed," said Mark Ri-
ley, chairman of the Department of
Physics at Florida State. "My congratu-
lations to Dr. Jenkins and our High En-
ergy Physics Group."
Jenkins has degrees from Harvard
University and the California Institute
of Tcclii ,h1 ,-.,, and he previously con-
ducted postgraduate research on the
topic of alternative universes while at
the Massachusetts Institute of Technol-
ogy. Despite all of his training, howev-
er, the Scientific American article was
unexpected.
"I am very proud of our research, but
to be honest, I think that this had some-
thing to do with the fact that people are
naturally intrigued by speculative ideas
about cosmology and the 'big picture.'
"The idea of parallel universes, in
particular, is one that many people find
exciting," Jenkins said. "The current
season of (the Fox-TV comedy) 'Fami-
ly Guy' recently premiered with an
episode called 'Road to the Multi-
verse,' which was premised on the idea
that one can visit other universes al-
though that seems impossible given
what we know about physics. Never-
theless, whether other universes actual-
ly exist is a question that has conse-
quences for our understanding of
physics in this world. I think our re-
search raises important questions in
that regard."
"Looking for Life in the Multiverse"
can be purchased, or accessed by Sci-
entific American subscribers, at the
magazine's web site (www.scientifi-
camerican.com/article.cfm?id=looking-
for-life-in-the-multiverse). The January
issue of the magazine is also on sale
now throughout the United States.


'The idea of

parallel universes,

in particular, is one

that many people

find exciting,'

Jenkins said. 'The

current season of

(the Fox-TV

comedy) "Family

Guy" recently

premiered with an

episode called

"Road to the

UF study suggests theory for insect



colonies as 'superorganisms'


GAINESVILLE A team of researchers including sci-
entists from the University of Florida has shown insect
colonies follow some of the same biological "rules" as
individuals, a finding that suggests insect societies oper-
ate like a single superorganismm" in terms of their physi-
ology and life cycle.
For more than a century, biologists have marveled at
the highly cooperative nature of ants, bees and other so-
cial insects that work together to determine the survival
and growth of a colony.
The social interactions are much like cells working to-
gether in a single body, hence the term superorganismm"
- an organism comprised of many organisms, according
to James Gillooly, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the de-


Outgrow Your
Wheels?


apartment of biology at UF's College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences.
Now, researchers from UF, the University of Okla-
homa and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine have
taken the same mathematical models that predict lifes-
pan, growth and reproduction in individual organisms
and used them to predict these features in whole
colonies.
By analyzing data from 168 different social insect
species including ants, termites, bees and wasps, the au-
thors found that the lifespan, growth rates and rates of re-
production of whole colonies when considered as super-
organisms were nearly indistinguishable from individual
organisms.

If you're er M f that perfect set of wheels,
look no furler than www.nflaonline.com


The findings will be published online this week in the
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
"This PNAS paper regarding the energetic basis of
colonial living in social insects is notable for its originali-
ty and also for its importance," said Edward 0. Wilson, a
professor of biology at Harvard University and co-author
of the book "The Super-Organism," who was not in-
volved in the research. "The research certainly adds a
new perspective to our study of how insect societies are
organized and to what degree they are organized."
The study may also help scientists understand how so-
cial systems have arisen through natural selection the
process by which evolution occurs. The evolution of so-
cial systems of insects in particular, where sterile workers
live only to help the queen reproduce, has long been a
mystery, Gillooly said.
"In life, two of the major evolutionary innovations
have been how cells came together to function as a single
organism, and how individuals joined together to func-
tion as a society," said Gillooly, who is a member of the
UF Genetics Institute. "Relatively speaking, we under-
stand a considerable amount about how the size of multi-
cellular organisms affects the life cycle of individuals
based on metabolic theory, but now we are showing this
same theoretical framework helps predict the life cycle of
whole societies of organisms."
Researchers note that insect societies make up a large
fraction of the total biomass on Earth, and say the finding
may have implications for human societies.
"Certainly one of the reasons folks have been interest-
ed in social insects and the consequences of living in
groups is that it tells us about our own species," said
study co-author Michael Kaspari, Ph.D., a presidential
professor of zoology, ecology and evolutionary biology at
the University of Oklahoma and the Smithsonian Tropi-
cal Research Institute. "There is currently a vigorous de-
bate on how sociality evolved. We suggest that any theo-
ry of sociality be consistent with the amazing conver-
gence in the way nonsocial and social organisms use en-
ergy."
In addition to Gillooly and Kaspari, Chen Hou from
the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and Hannah B.
Vander Zanden of the University of Florida participated
in the study.
