O City public works
contract at issue
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
See Our View, Page 6A, for related
commentary.
At least one city councilman wants to
renew Live Oak's $2.4 million contract
for public works services without seek-
ing competitive bids, while another says
he's "on the fence" about the matter.
Operations Management Internation-
al (OMI) has been maintaining the
city's wastewater and water treatment
plant since 1997 after winning the con-
tract through a competitive bidding
process.
OMI was given a contract in 2005 to

" Jail repair job
netted just 1 bid
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
An ambiguously-worded advertise-
ment for bids to replace corroding wa-
ter pipes at the Suwannee County Jail
may have been the reason only one
company chose to apply, according to
one county commissioner.
Chairman Wesley Wainwright said
the wording of the previous advertise-
ment "may have been" the reason only
one bidder applied.
"I really wasn't satisfied and we had
a lot of questions," said Wainwright.
Certified Air Contractors Inc. was
the sole bidder to fix the county jail's
water loop system that connects the
heating, ventilation and air condition-
ing systems. Parts of the in-ground,

Volunteer
firefighters ask
county for help
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
About 20 members of Suwannee
County's volunteer fire service and its
governing board attended the Jan. 19
county commission meeting to ask for
more money so they can help properly
fight fires.
"We have no additional funds at this
time for equipment and other needs,"
volunteer Terry Burgess told the com-
mission.
Burgess said about $160,000 will
need to be spent to properly equip vol-
unteers and their stations. He said 27
sets of gear, including protective cloth-
ing, are needed. Each set costs about
$1,500.

Editor's note: When this an-

is the corrected version, in its en-

Live Oak native Wendell L.
Hill's campaign slogan could be
summed up in three words "stop

Football coach calls it quits



Odom takes job at JU under Kerwin Bell


By Tom Daniels
Suwannee High head football coach Jerry
Odom will be leaving Suwannee High after
one year to take a job as an assistant at Jack-
sonville University.
"I will miss the kids, this is one of the
finest groups of young men I have ever had
the pleasure to coach," he said. "They worked
hard for this program and will continue to
work hard for next year. I feel I have left a
firm foundation."
Odom, a former UF player and Arena Foot-
ball League star will be joining a familiar
face Kerwin Bell at JU.
Odom announced his decision Tuesday.


"I received a lot of offers these past two
years and don't regret taking the Suwannee
job," Odom said. "The Booster Club is best
club I have ever worked with. I don't know if
you could find a bunch of harder working
generous people. The administration has been
great and Mr. Scarborough has been a won-
derful superintendent to work for. Suwannee
County is a great community. I got an offer
that was just too good to pass on for me and
my family."
Bell, the head coach at JU, has given Odom
the title of Defensive Coordinator/ Assistant
Head Coach. The school will probably be en-
tering a conference in the next year or two


and is considered an up-and-coming program.
Odom has coached before on the collegiate
level for Florida, East Carolina, New Mexico
and TCU.
"I still hope to get some of our boys into
college," Odom said. "I know this is a better
team going forward. The weight room has
been improved and as the players workout so
will their record. I'm excited about my new
job but I agonized about leaving a great
bunch of kids. They are hard working and
want to be successful. Coaching at Suwannee
has been a great experience and I wish them
every success. It will be one of my first stops
when recruiting begins."

helped plant trees in front
of the UF/IFAS Suwannee
County Extension Office
and around the Agricultural
Complex. The flowering
Dogwood trees that were
planted were donated by
Mr. Dwight Stansel and
Stansel Farms. Tree planti-
ng and assistance was pro-
vided by Mr. Brian Cobble
from the Division of
Forestry. 4-H'ers were also
given trees to take home
and plant in their yards.
Florida Arbor Day is ob-

4-H Council attend
UF athletic events
Suwannee County 4-H
Council members recently
attended two University of
Florida athletic events. On
Dec. 22, the Council at-


tended the men's basketball
game against the University
of South Alabama. For
many of the youth in atten-
dance it was the first time
they had ever stepped foot
on a college campus, let
alone attend a collegiate
athletic event. The council
had a great time and was
able to visit with members
of the State 4-H Executive
Board, who were also in at-
tendance. The 4-H Council
members were also present
at the women's gymnastics
event on Jan. 15 against the
University of Arkansas.
The University Athletic As-
sociation was generous
enough to provide 2 for 1
tickets for 4-H members
across the state for these
events.
The Suwannee County 4-
H Council is made up of
members from the nine 4-H
clubs in Suwannee County.
The Council's purpose is to
give equal representation to
all Suwannee County 4-H
clubs. The Council meets
monthly to plan events and
fundraisers, practice public
speaking and leadership,
and conduct business meet-
ings. The Council also pro-
motes youth leaders in our
community through leader-
ship opportunities, commu-
nity service, responsibility,
and discipline. They also
promote Suwannee County
4-H to all individuals in
Suwannee County ages 5-

OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat


Moment


of truth

For the Live Oak City Council it may come
Feb. 9, at its next scheduled meeting. That's
when the council will likely decide whether
to open the OMI public works contract to
competitive bidding, or once again renew the
$2.4 million pact without bothering to look
for a better deal.
Here's a little background.
Last April, after first voting to open the
contract to bids, the council reversed course,
citing time constraints (among other con-
cerns). It was said to be too late in the game
to begin advertising, so, in a 3-2 vote, the
council gave OMI one more year, with the
promise of competition in 2010.
We gave council members the benefit of
the doubt (See "Our View Bidding wars,"
in our online archives) and expressed confi-
dence they'd do the right thing this time.
It's not at all clear they will.
Councilman Ed Rewis says the city needn't
bother going out for bids. Council President
Mark Stewart, who previously pledged to let
other companies compete for a contract
worth one-eighth of the city's budget, now
reports he's "on the fence."
The closest we've come to an actual expla-
nation involves supposed concern for work-
ers' rights. It's said that if OMI isn't re-
newed, many of its employees mostly local
folks will end up without pensions from the
firm. (The pensions vest after five years.)
If that sounds familiar, it's because you've
heard it before. This was one of the argu-
ments used last spring to justify renewing
OMI's contract for "just one more year."
Now we're told there are other unvested
workers as well, and OMI should be renewed
yet again so they too can have pensions. And
if new workers are hired during the term of
that contract? Sounds like we've got a deal
for life.
A related issue concerns fears a new com-
pany might bring in its own employees and
do away with the local workforce altogether.
The answer to that is easy enough make
continued employment of local folks a con-
dition of any new deal.
Let's put this thing in perspective, folks.
We're not asking the city to fire OMI. For all
we know, they're the best in the business. We
just want to do a little comparison shopping
to be sure. What could be wrong with that?

Here's what our representative in Congress, Allen
Boyd, said* about what should be done now that Scott
Brown, a Republican who vowed to vote against the
health care bill, has been elected to the Senate from
Massachusetts: "Focus on the healthcare thing," said
Florida Rep. Allen Boyd, a leading Blue Dog Democrat.
"Get the healthcare thing right and get it out of here.
And then focus on the budget stuff." Is passing a health
care bill what you want Allen Boyd focusing on? Let
him know (202) 225-5235, (850) 561-3979, or

I read Mr. Henderson's letter to the editor. As I recall
he had a chance as both a politician and an editor. He
didn't do to good at either. Obviously critic was his call-
ing.

Just a big hoorah and an attaboy for the Suwannee
County animal control officer Mrs. Hunter and her hus-
band from the city. A lot of things are said bad of them
but they were out here Friday morning and did a good
job for us and they deserve a pat on the back. Attaboy!
Attaboy! Bye, Bye.
MEN
I would like to commend Alden of the Suwannee
County rec department on the great job he did with soc-
cer.

The City improved traffic immensively when creat-
ing the roundabout at SR51, CR136, Walker, etc. It was
done very tastefully for visual appeal also. However,
the old tin building on CR136 is an eyesore. Isn't there
any city codes to make the owners of this building tear
it down or maintain the safety of the building. I imag-
ine it is a haven for rodents and perhaps people misbe-
havior.

The county recently put c ci, 1111i out for bid" in an
effort to be fair and balanced. The response for the
county attorney's job should be an indication to these
babbling boobs that no one really wants to deal with
them. They got 2 replies and one of them from the cur-
rent attorney. They are looking for another county coor-
dinator and chances are the pool will not be as rich as it
was the first time. Maybe we need to go outside the
county and really find someone who doesn't have a clue
about Suwannee County or it's commissioners. I give
the next guy 6 months

What propaganda school did Professor Walter
Williams go to in order to believe that Haiti's problems
are caused by not enough capitalism? Does he mean the
current President of Haiti, who was hand picked by the
U.S. after we helped sustain a coup that ousted their De-
mocratically elected President, is not doing his job? Oh
my. The U.S. certainly isn't in the habit of installing
flunkies who are not pro-capitalist.
And then there was that capitalistic move of enor-
mous stupidity that put the 2 main industries into private
hands and then immediately shut them down forcing
Haiti to import while losing all their jobs as well.
Manipulation of Haiti by stronger powers has been
going on for a long time. Because of that she remains
poor, disenfranchised and unable to govern herself.
MEN
Its time our good old boy county commissioners to
pull their heads out of the good old suwannee county
sand and see the light of day for once. The dog and pony
show put on and lapped up by the commission has
stirred up a batch of lies and deception. Now the public
safety director who called in the ISO and DOT to come
in and inspect and find fault (that he knew good and
well was already there), is casting blame on the volun-
teers, tax base, and who knows what else. The truth is
the problem is lack of leadership, management, and pro-
fessionalism at the helm of the county fire department.
Commissioners, you quickly fired the "problem" coun-
ty coordinator and hired one that stayed a few months.
How long will you allow a problem public safety direc-

tor to run this county's fire service and "our" county into
the same ground that you hide your heads in. The im-
provement of the county's fire protection could have
been handled in another venue and without threat to
"our" insurance rates. I am tired of snake oil salesmen
and paying for something that does not measure up.
Look into the spending of our fire assessments and tax
dollars before you jump on the public safety director's
band wagon.

Due to the recent ML King, Jr. Holiday, I opted to
view the City's website to see the revised holiday
garbage pickup schedule. Upon viewing the website, the
entire 2009 schedule was present but none for 2010.
What gives? Does anybody every update this site?

I have written in a few times ranting about this and
that. This time I want to Rave about the Suwannee De-
mocrat, specifically the Rant and Rave column. I truly
appreciate having a place where I can air my gripes and
read the opinions of so many others. There seems to be
no editorializing, if you or I submit something it will be
published, no matter where we stand on an issue. Thank
you Rant and Rave! Oh, by the way, my wife and I and
some neighbors will be picking up trash in our neigh-
borhood on Saturday. Maybe you can come out and join
us or get out and clean up your own neighborhood. It
would be a start...

Praise be!! Some folks are starting to realize all these
wonderful grants obtained here in our welfare county
are coming out of your pockets to fund pet projects. The
loop rd. could be a good thing if we allowed businesses
to develop along it, but we won't, we will open yet an-
other under occupied business park at taxpayer ex-
pense,strangle it with inept regulations & nepotism and
call it a success. Get the incumbents out of offices they
have held far too long. Put new and qualified people in
charge of the chamber, tourism & economic devel.
boards. We need folks with degrees and exp. in eco-
nomics, political science, business & gov't admin. in
these positions instead of the guy in the pew next to you.
To revitalize downtown, we must provide a reason for
people to get off the interstates and visit as well as a way
to get local folks, (especially new residents) on the
streets in the evenings and weekends instead of leaving
the county for dining, shopping and entertainment. The
alcohol laws and the pious but hostile attitude keep this
from ever happening.

Looks as if City Hall and the City Council has made
another questionable decision. Very quietly, they made
the decision to put a City well field in a location that the
Water Management does not recommend. Even though
there were other suitable locations that not only the Wa-
ter Management District recommended, but also would
have bought the property and made it available to the
City at no cost. Seems as though the City along with the
City Council does not care how they spend our tax dol-
lars. Makes one wonder how decisions are made at City
Hall. We need to be very aware of how we vote at elec-
tion time.
MEN
After Fridays paper on our County's Fire Department
I think it is time for someone out there to be on the hot
seat mainly the person in charge. That department is
costing us more and more money every year, not only
with our taxes but a threat of possibly losing our fire in-
surance too. Our fire taxes are some of the highest in the
state. My mother lives inside the city limits, they have
no fire tax and lower insurance rates. This is ridiculous,
this has gone too far.

It's February where are the OMI bids Mr. Stewart ?
Or should I say Flip Flop again.
MEN
Could someone publish the qualifications to be a city
councilman. Must you be able to read or write? Add or
subtract? Do you need a GED or is a Suwannee County
birth certificate all that's required, qualifications be
darned.

MEN
Apparently Congressman Boyd does not care what
the people want regarding the health care bill. A so
called "blue dog Democrat" that tows the party line!
I believe the election this year will unseat all such
politicians as he, and that will be a good thing.
The people are speaking loud and clear and those who
are not tuned in will surely be looking for work some-
place else.
Does the upset in Massachusetts not say it all? How
dense are our representatives in Washington?

back home when it was time for her and her
husband to make that all-important retirement
decision. Although Elaine was born in Taylor
County, she always felt like Lafayette County
was her home, since the majority of her rela-
tives lived there and it is where she spent her
childhood. Her father was born and raised in
a place that the locals refer to as Fish Creek,
just over the Lafayette Bridge, where his old
house still stands.
As a young girl, she worked on a tobacco

days, real Florida weather
again! At least compared to
the last few weeks. The
fact that I could open my
windows and enjoy fresh air
was a real treat this past
week, and I'm hoping we'll
have a lot of days like we
had this past weekend.
For those of you in the
O'Brien area who remem-

looking forward to her visit
with me next week. Mary
ent and her husband Richard
lived here in O'Brien until
Richard's death in 2004, at
which time she moved up to
Kentucky to be near family,
and she is looking forward
to visiting with friends
while she is here.
It's time for the "Hogge-
S towne Medieval Faire" in
Gainesville again, and I am
d really looking forward to
this event. If you haven't
enjoyed this time of travel-

Robin Hood and the Sheriff

you to go this time around.

Suwannee River Stock Dog Trials coming


Fred Moses, a dairyman from Branford, will be among the competitors


The Suwannee River
Stock Dog Trails will be
held locally at the Culley-
mont in Dixie farm on
Highway 349 in the north-
east corner of Dixie Coun-
ty on Feb. 5-7. This will
be the third stock dog tri-
als to be held at the Dixie
County farm.
For hundreds of years,
stock dog trials have been
held in Scotland and Eng-
land where sheep dogs,
primarily Border Collies
and their handlers exhibit
their skills in handling
sheep through an assigned
obstacle course. A trial is
designed to test all of the
skills a good ranch or

farm in Lafayette to fund
her love of clothes shop-
ping and many days were
spent picking grapes. Fri-
day nights, however, were
for hopping onto a mule
fueled wagon cart to head
into downtown Branford
for movie night. Back
then, since there was no
theater, the movies were
shown on the side of a
wall.
She later settled in Perry
for 42 years, where she
met and then married her
best friend, David, who,
it's been said, strongly re-
sembles Robin Leach, the
host of the television se-
ries, "Lifestyles of the
Rich and Famous."
Since David insisted he
wanted to retire to a home


farm dog needs to perform
its daily work. To reach
the level of training and
skill required to success-
fully compete in a trial,
takes years of work on the
part of the dog and the
handler.
The team effort is
demonstrated as the part-
ners (handlers and dogs)
not only understand each
other perfectly but out-
guess and outwit unfamil-
iar sheep as they entice
them through the obstacle
course.
Spectators always enjoy
watching these fascinating
dogs compete while under
total control at distances


of 260 to 500 yards
through obstacle after ob-
stacle. The idea is for the
dog, with the assistance of
the handler controlling it
by voice or whistle, to
flank right, left, stop, walk
up or make whatever
move needed to move
these three sheep through
the course.
The handler stays at the
post to command the dog
through the 10 minutes al-
lotted until he reaches the
pen when he can leave the
post to help the dog. The
ultimate result is to put the
sheep through the course
in a quiet and controlled
manner causing the sheep


very little anxiety. Grip-
ping or biting the sheep in
any way results in imme-
diate disqualification.
These trials are qualify-
ing trials for the United
States Border Collie Han-
dlers Association National
Finals and the Georgia
Stock Dog Association Fi-
nals. The Open or highest
level of classes is held on
Saturday and Sunday.
Younger dogs will com-
pete in the lower level
classes on Friday. A Unit-
ed States Border Collie
Assoc. Nursery class will
also be held on each of the
three days of competition.
The judges for these will


be Jim Murphy from Port-
land, Ontario Canada, and
Carol Campion from
Hammond, Conn.
Competitors are expect-
ed from several states with
many of the competitors
coming from Florida and
Georgia. Fred Moses, a
dairyman from Branford,
will be one of the com-
petitors. Some of the dogs
competing were imported
from Scotland, Wales, Ire-
land, and England.
Among the competitors
are Richard and Cheryl
Jagger Williams from Cul-
leymont at Dixie farm
where they raise and train
their own Border collies.


Cheryl and Richard are
presently nationally
ranked in the top ten in
the U.S. Border Collie
Handlers Association. One
of the dogs Cheryl will be
running in the open com-
petition is named Spot.
Spot was imported from
Ireland and was ranked
eighth in the country last
year. Spot also won the
Northeast Border Collie
Association Finals.
Richard will be running

east Border Collie Han-
dler's Association's High

on the Suwannee River,
Elaine complied on one
condition. It had to be in
the community of Hatch
Bend, on the outskirts of
Branford, because that was
where she felt the strongest
family ties. With a Bran-
ford address and phone
number, they consider
themselves residents of
that town and it is where
they do their shopping and
errands.
With the help of Brae
Construction, Elaine and
David built a magnificent
two-level home, complete
with an elevator, and you
guessed it, it is right smack
dab on the romantic
Suwannee River.
Speaking of romantic,
these retirement years for
David and Elaine are actu-
ally their honeymoon,
since they never got to ex-
perience one after they got
married. Coming into a


ready-made family with
two children, then having
another child together, and
finally caring for David's
mother years later, there
was never any time for
them to just enjoy each
other.
Together they did all the
finish work on the house,
even laying tile, which was
something they learned
how to do together. David
proudly says that Elaine is
"a great carpenter's
helper," along with being a
fabulous cook and a won-
derful mother to their chil-
dren.
Her talent doesn't end in
the kitchen, though. In
fact, there probably isn't
anything she hasn't tried.
She was urged by a friend
to try pottery making and
the final pieces look as
professional and beautiful
as you'd find in any store.
One of her passions was


volunteering at Big Bend
Hospice, where she was a
Patient/Family Volunteer.
She also served on the Ad-
visory Counsel for four-
teen years. To quote
Elaine, "Working for hos-
pice has been the most re-
warding thing I've ever

McAlpin Advent Christian

Church celebrates



Mission Month


Dick Grillo will be the guest speaker
at the McAlpin Advent Christian
Church on Sunday, Jan. 31. He is con-
sidered the "Ambassador" for the Ad-
vent Christian Village retirement com-
munity in Dowling Park. Mr. Grillo
graduated from Aurora University with
both a Bachelor of Arts in Music, Bible
and Religion. For nearly 10 years he
served in areas of youth and music min-
istry prior to joining the staff of ACV,
Florida's oldest accredited retirement
community. He has served in various
administrative capacities since 1982.
His degrees and years of service as a
guitarist, entertainer and song leader
have allowed him the opportunity to
uniquely blend career service skills to
those in and around the ACV Communi-
ty. In 2006, Mr. Grillo was appointed
Senior Director of Community Outreach
allowing him to serve as an Ambassador


for the Village locally and within the de-
nomination.
Pastor Paul Bertolino stated, "Mr.
Grillo will speak at both the 9:45 a.m.
Adult Christian Education hour and the
10:50 morning worship service. He will
present the history of the Village, in-
cluding Camp Suwannee Youth Camp.
Area residents are welcome to both pre-
sentations. Mr. Grillo will also cover the
nearly century old vision that brought
this ministry together, which includes
Mr. Dowling himself'. Pastor Bertolino
continued; "once again we're fortunate
to have available to the McAlpin church
and Suwannee County such a profes-
sionally skilled, experienced, represen-
tative of the Christian Community."
More information can be obtained by
calling the Pastor at 386-658-1048. The
McAlpin Church is located at 17214

Hill announces bid for city council seat

4," Hill said. "I feel the city council
members should spend your tax dol-
lars in a professional way. At the pre-
sent time we have a lot of waste
which should be stopped."
Hill said he believes the city could
start by looking at the workforce and
frivolous spending.
"We're paying a lot more employ-
ees than we need," said Hill. "We
need to have one man reading water
meters instead of two. What a waste."
He added, "Our city council has
also gone into the real estate busi-
ness, which means pulling property
from the tax rolls. Some of this prop-
erty is purchased with taxpayers'
money at up to six or eight times its
value."
Hill said one thing he would try to
change early on is the way the agen-
da for city meetings is distributed.
Hill said the agenda should be avail-
able for the public in advance, not a


day before a meeting.
"The taxpayers and voters need to
see the agenda of all meetings at least
one week before the meeting, which
should be printed in the Suwannee
Democrat," said Hill. "It's done all
over the state of Florida. How's peo-
ple going to go to a meeting if there's
no agenda."

Other Hill campaign pledges:

"If you see fit to elect me, I will
spend your tax dollars wisely and
represent all taxpayers and voters in
Live Oak, not just a select few."
"I will not accept campaign funds
and will owe no special favors, if
elected."
"It's time we put OMI out to pas-
ture and hired local taxpayers that are
qualified to manage all utility depart-
ments."
"We need to look at drainage in
areas that flood and make homeown-
ers have to purchase flood insur-


ance."
"It's time our city council real-
ized that grant money is not free
money. At some point, it came out of
the taxpayers' and voters' pockets."

Hill was born in 1940 in
Zephyrhills. He served in the U.S.

Would-be


burglar sought

Live Oak Police need the public's help in searching
for a person who tried to break into a local conve-
nience store early Wednesday.
Video footage from the JK Food Mart at 969 Ohio
Avenue, shows a person attempting to gain entry to
the store around 5:41 a.m., according to LOPD Det.
Sgt. Ron Shaw.
"It shows somebody tried throwing a chuck of con-
crete at a window," said Shaw.
That window was on the north side of the building,
behind the cigarette display, said Shaw.
Instead of crashing through, the concrete bounced
back, almost limiiig the person's toes," Shaw said.
The suspect then threw the concrete at the front
door, at which point the security alarm sounded, send-
ing the suspect fleeing south, said Shaw.
"And they left their chunk of concrete," he noted.
Shaw said due to the suspect's clothing light col-
ored hoodie and white gloves and the angle of the
camera, police are unable to distinguish gender or
race.
Shaw said there are no suspects at this time. Any-
one with relevant information is asked to contact the
LOPD at 386-362-7463.

On the subject of Fox news, like this col-
umn, much of Fox is opinion. It is the "Na-
tional Enquirer" of TV news. It owes it's
very existence to political chicanery. Prior
to "the tired old man we elected king" (i.e.
Ronald Reagen), foriegn ownership of me-
dia outlets was clearly & strictly banned.
Mr. Murdock gave tons of money to the re-
publican party & Reagen's campaign, in
return, the laws were changed allowing a
non-American to create this entertainment
giant and to influence the reporting of
news in a drastically different way. The key
word here is entertainment and some good
old political quid pro quo. Anyone accused
of scandal, misconduct, or a polical loser is
coveted by Fox as long as they have the
nerve to spout out network policy lines for
huge sums of money. That my freinds is
entertainment!

Hamilton biomass plant


brings jobs,

Debate continues about

environmental effects,

sustainability of project

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

The Florida Department of Environmen-
tal Protection has issued the final permit to
Adage Biopower for a 55-megawatt bio-
mass fueled power plant to be built in
Hamilton County. The company plans to be-
gin construction within the next four
months.
Adage Spokesmen Jerret Adams said his
company's goal is to "ensure healthy, sus-
tainable forests so they will remain a renew-
able resource for the community as well as
providing a renewable fuel source."
The plant, to be located at State Road 6
and County Road 146, will convert waste
wood to fuel.
However, some critics are challenging the
company's environmental claims.
"Clean and green? It's anything but that,
it's dirty," said Dr. Ron Saff, asthma and al-
lergy specialist in Tallahassee and a member
of Physicians for Social Responsibility, a
non-profit advocacy group.
Others claim there is not enough of the
company's fuel of choice, "forest waste," to
accommodate the plant.
Michele Curtis of Buckeye of Florida, a
pulp mill, said Adage has greatly overesti-
mated the amount of waste wood available.
"There is just not enough out there," said
Curtis.
The Adage plant in Hamilton isn't the
only biomass facility that may soon fire up
its incinerators in the area. Several compa-
nies have outlined plans for new biomass
plants from Gainesville to central Georgia in
the hopes of creating new industry and re-
ducing harmful emissions into the atmos-
phere. In fact, another biomass plant may be
in the works for Hamilton County. Ameri-
can Renewables is seeking to build a new
plant in White Springs.
The financial benefits are considerable,
especially in a place like Hamilton County,
where unemployment measured 12.5 per-
cent in December.
The Adage plant, the first to receive ap-
proval by FDEP, will pay an estimated
$550,000 dollars in taxes annually after 70
percent abatement during the first five
years, according to Hamilton County Coor-
dinator Danny Johnson. Johnson said Adage
would also make a payment of $1.4 million
dollars to the county's school system.
The plant will create about 140-150 new
jobs during construction and in the related
timber industry, as well as about 25-40
greatly needed full-time jobs, said Johnson.
"Adage has promised their intentions are
to be good stewards of the environment and
the local community," said Johnson.
The source
Adage plans to use up to 600,000 tons of
wood, mainly "forest waste," the term for
tree limbs, roots, storm debris and tops and
stumps left over after lumber is harvested.
Adage hopes to create a new forest waste
market within a 50-mile radius of the plant.
Supporters say this contemporary usage of
an ancient source will help reduce harmful
atmospheric emissions. However, its critics


controversy
say this use of forest waste is unrealistic.
Buckeye's Curtis says Adage has overes-
timated the amount of wood they can gather
from forest waste.
"There is not enough waste material with-
in a 50 mile radius of any plant to supply all
the needs of a 55-megawatt plant," said Cur-
tis. "In fact, I believe there will be only
enough waste material to supply 20 to 30
percent of their annual needs." Curtis said
her opinion is based on 31 years of experi-
ence as a forester.
Adage spokesmen Jerret Adams said his
company has based its forest waste esti-
mates on years of experience and extensive
research.
"Our estimates are based on real world
experience," said Adams. "We will be har-
vesting what is otherwise considered waste
for a helpful purpose for humans."
The Florida Forestry Association agrees.
"The potential for greater wood use is a
positive sign that more forests will be grow-
ing here," said FFA Executive Vice Presi-
dent Jeff Doran. "To sustain Florida's
forests, landowners will need economic in-
centives to stay on the land."
Adams said the company's use of forest
waste would cut down on methane gases in
the atmosphere and the risk of forest fires.
"This material would be burned or simply
rot on the forest floor, in either case produc-
ing CO2 emissions," he said. "Biomass is
considered a carbon neutral, renewable
power source. By using biomass, you're
part of the carbon cycle."
Still, some environmentalists worry about
any removal of forest waste.
"Those trimmings need to stay in the for-
est to replenish the soil," said environmen-
talist Joy Towles Ezell of Taylor County.
"You're taking all the nutrients out of the
soil and in the end you won't be able to
grow anything."
Emissions
Based on the air permit, the project will
result in emissions increases of nearly 1,000
tons per year of carbon monoxide, nitrogen
oxides, particulate matter, sulfuric acid mist,
sulfur dioxide, volatile organic compounds,
lead, hydrogen chloride and other materials.
"Biomass plants pollute the air, cause car-
diac and lung conditions, and cancer," ar-
gues physician Saff. "This is not something
you want to welcome into your communi-
ty."
The Department of Environmental Pro-
tection disagrees.
"This facility is not a major source of haz-
ardous air pollutants," said Amy Graham of
DEP. "The draft permit requires the facility
to install air pollutant control equipment and
measures to minimize any particulate matter
emissions."
Jay Liles of the Florida Wildlife Federa-
tion said whether biomass plants are dan-
gerous depends on the source of fuel. Al-
though he is not directly familiar with the
Adage plant, he believes biomass plants,
which use forest waste, are a step in the right
direction.
"I think it's a good move for us to start
looking at alternative fuel sources such as


forest waste,"

perform public works ser-
vices for the city through a
no-bid process, legal since
the two already had an on-
going contractual relation-
ship. OMI representative
Brent Stauffer said Live
Oak and OMI were able to
reach an agreement since
OMI was already familiar
with the city and its public
works operations.
The current contract, set
to expire in September, was
opened up early by OMI af-
ter the council voted last
month to consider forego-
ing competitive bids. Some
council members said they
wanted to bid the contract
out to see if the city was
getting a fair deal for the
money.
However, Councilman
Ed Rewis felt there was no
need to seek other bids.
"We have such a load go-
ing with all the other pro-
jects," said Rewis. "The
more I look into this the
more I don't want to go out
for bids. The employees are
happy and they (OMI) put
their cards on the table. I
think we need to drop it."
Council President Mark
Stewart, who voted in April
2009 to seek competitive
bids this time around, said
he's on the fence.

four pipe system has cor-
roded and leaked for about
10 years, county staff said.
Commissioners awarded
the company the bid for
$392,000, but have since re-
versed course. They voted
Monday morning at a re-
cessed meeting to readver-
tise the job and to change
the wording of the adver-
tisement to "repair or re-
place the inground loop sys-
tem." The previous ad sup-
plied to the Suwannee De-
mocrat and other publica-
tions simply referenced the
"in-ground four pipe A/C
system located at the
Suwannee County Jail,"
without any mention of re-
pairing or replacing the sys-
tem.
Some commissioners
previously expressed con-
cern with the wording of
the ad and with receiving
only one bid.

"I kind of felt that, since
we decided to negotiate we
wouldn't (go out for bids),
but now I'm undecided,"
said Stewart.
Councilman John Hale,
who has always favored
seeking bids, said OMI it-
self wasn't the problem, but
rather the desire to dispel
even the appearance of im-
propriety.
"The problem that I hear
from my constituents and
the public is 'Why ya'll got
those people running that
and don't bid it out,'" said
Hale.
Replied OMI negotiator
Grega St. John, "So what
I'm .-.iIliLii is that it's
not any performance issues,
you just need to know that
you're getting a good cost."
kiIhli You're never go-
ing to know the exact cost
until you get a bid," an-
swered Hale.
St. John asked Hale and
other council members to
compare operating and
contract costs with other
cities this size.
"I challenge you to that,"
said St. John.
Hale disagreed.
"To me, if it's bid out,
that puts an end to someone
saying 'What's going on
down there?'" he said.


St. John said she believed
the council would not find
another company that per-
forms as well as OMI for
the $2.4 million contract
price.
After the issue was raised
by council members, Stauf-
fer confirmed Tuesday that
if another company were to
come in, 23 members of the
local OMI workforce could
lose retirement benefits ac-
cumulated thus far. Seven-
teen workers will be fully
vested in July.
In addition, it was noted,
another company might not
retain the current, local
workforce.
"The concern was
voiced by the council, they
wanted to make sure staff
is taken care of," said
Stauffer. "Our biggest as-
set of the company is the
employees so our concern
was all those folks missing
out on retirement and vest-
ing benefits."
Rewis said that point
alone should have commis-
sioners hesitating on the bid
process.
"It's still the argument
and still the issue," he said.
The next opportunity to
discuss the matter will be at
the next scheduled meeting
Feb. 9.

Glancing around I could see
that the "honoree" cousin

(once removed), Margaret
Willis Clark, seated there in

the foyer of that lovely
Phillips Center was quite

busy greeting guests as they
arrived. I must say that this
bright-eyed and enthusiastic

little lady shows none of the
signs often associated with
folks her age and as I

noticed when she arose
from that chair, she is quite
spry for her 90 years.

Margaret Willis Clark



celebrates 90th birthday


By O.A. 1\ ni,,,i', Jr.
I visited The Advent
Christian Village in
Dowling Park on Jan. 9,
which was the first such
visit in 30 years. I was
here in 1980 at the
invitation of Pomeroy
Carter Jr., and given the
"grand tour" of what he
and his father, Pomeroy
Sr., had accomplished as
administrators of this
lovely facility, over the
span of three or four
decades. That father and
his successor son had
transformed what had
originally begun as an
"orphans home" in a
bygone era, into a
marvelous and expansive
facility that included
accommodations for those
retiring elderly folks in
search of a home where
all their needs could be
met as they made the
transition into those
"golden years."
This visit was by
invitation also, that of a
relative residing there ...
Margaret Willis Clark was
celebrating her 90th
birthday, hosted by
children and the newly
constructed Phillips
Center there at the Advent
Christian Village was the
setting for this gala
occasion and what a
lovely and appropriately
decorated facility it is.
As usual, I'm a few
minutes early at such
times and it gave me a few
minutes to spend renewing


some old acquaintances.
The first person that I
recognized upon entering
that magnificent edifice
was Wyman Clark. His
mother, Abbie, was
Margaret's sister and
Abbie had raised her
family in Mayo, so I was
acquainted with them. It's
hard to miss those Clark
boys in any crowd as they
stand a little larger and
broader than most folks
and of course they usually
sport those shiny heads so
typical of their heritage. I
learned that Wyman had
retired after 40 years with
Suwannee Valley Electric
and brother Wyatt was
there, having retired from
the Florida Highway
Patrol. Ronald showed up
later and the only one
missing was Donald, who
had passed away several
years ago. And there was
lovely Marlene whom I
had last seen 30 years ago
at the "Potentates Ball" at
the Osborn center in
Downtown Jacksonville.
Glancing around I could
see that the "honoree"
cousin (once removed),
Margaret Willis Clark,
seated there in the foyer
of that lovely Phillips
Center was quite busy
greeting guests as they
arrived. I must say that


this bright-eyed and
enthusiastic little lady
shows none of the signs
often associated with
folks her age and as I
noticed when she arose
from that chair, she is
quite spry for her 90
years.
I had the pleasure of
meeting her children and
what a gracious group
they are. One daughter
was absent due to an
accident when her
husband broke his leg
only moments before they
were to prepare for the
day's events.
A little background
detail is appropriate here
and it entails the days
back when this lady and
her sister, Abbie, were
growing up. Abbie, the
older of the two was also
a beautiful girl and she
had caught the eye of a
young man by the name
of Frank Clark. Frank and
Abbie went through the
courting process and were
married. Well, Frank had
a brother, J. D. Clark, a
few years younger and he
noticed that there was
another beautiful young
girl in that Willis family,
named Margaret and he
set out on the courting
trail also. J.D. and
Margaret were married


THIS SEASON
I WANT SOMETHING


HARDWORKING


and so there you have it,
two brothers marrying
two sisters. Two
handsome young men
with their eyes open
latching onto two
beautiful young ladies.
Frank and Abbie had six
children, four boys and
two girls. J.D. and
Margaret had five
children, four girls and a
boy. As you will notice
from the accompanying
photo, most of them were
there to help Margaret
celebrate her birthday.


A delightful buffet
dinner with all the
trimmings, appealing to
those with even the most
discriminating taste was
prepared for the large
crowd gathered there in
honor of this little lady on
her birthday. I failed to
get the name of the folks
that catered that affair but
intend to do so for future
reference.
I can't remember
spending a more
enjoyable afternoon then
what I experienced there,


mingling with kin folks,
renewing old friendships
and reminiscing about
bygone days, that I had
there on that day.
Shortly after that
delightful meal I made
ready to begin the trek
back to Marion County as
the sun had already begun
it's journey towards the
western horizon and I
don't particularly like
driving after dark.
And so, after a brief
offering of parting words,
I was gone.

( Athletes of God -

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


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

Everyday is a cause for celebration


Heart Matters
By Angie Land

By Angie Land

I lost something this
week, and I wonder if you
have ever noticed that no
matter how small or large
your loss, it immediately
becomes the center of your
attention. Lost your car
keys? Everything else
stops and a massive hunt


begins. Lose your job? All
the frustrations that went
along with it seem minor
in comparison to trying to
find a new one. However,
as frustrating as losing
keys and jobs can be, they
can be replaced. Lose your
health and every other is-
sue becomes secondary.
Lose a loved one and you
wonder, "How on earth
did I ever take one mo-
ment for granted?"
In Luke 15, the Bible
records three of Jesus'
parables dealing with
something lost; a sheep, a
coin and a son. The shep-
herd has 100 sheep and
loses one, so he secures
the 99 and goes in search
of the one. A certain
woman with 10 coins, los-
es one and lights the lamp
to search carefully until


she finds it. The father,
whose youngest son
chooses to leave home,
waits and watches for his
return. In all three exam-
ples, what was lost be-
came the concentrated fo-
cus; what was taken for
granted, immediately be-
came urgently important.
Perhaps then, experienc-
ing loss is the cure for a
more tragic problem, the
agent of familiarity. In his
book, God Came Near, au-
thor Max Lucado writes,
"(Familiarity's) goal is
nothing less than to take
what is most precious to
us and make it appear
most common. To say that
this agent of familiarity
breeds contempt is to let
him off easy. Contempt is
just one of his offspring.
He also sires broken


hearts, wasted hours, and
an insatiable desire for
more. He's an expert in
robbing the sparkle and re-
placing it with the drab
and his strategy is decep-
tive."
By definition the word
"familiar" means "fre-
quently seen or experi-
enced; of everyday occur-
rence." No surprises there,
but the next description
should shake us out of our
business as usual routines.
Familiarity indicates an
absence of ceremony, life
with nothing to celebrate
because everything be-
comes ordinary. That girl
who used to make your
heart race barely gets a
second glance from the
comfort of your recliner,
and that guy you used to
dress up for on Saturday


nights now gets only the
left-over energy from your
day. What about the child
who brought tears to your
eyes in the delivery room,
but now spends more time
in front of the television
than with you. With our
spouse, children, family
and friends, every day of
life is cause for a celebra-
tion by the sheer fact that
we aren't promised even
one more, and each one
could be the last.
What I lost this week
was a friend and while I
have joy and peace know-
ing that he is in heaven, I
am sad that I let his friend-
ship grow ordinary to me.
I saw him every week,
with no thought that this
week would be any differ-
ent. While the opportunity
to tell him just what a


great guy I thought he was
is gone, I have been re-
minded of the extraordi-
nary reasons to celebrate
life. It is precious and it is
short and nothing about it
is ordinary.

Matters,

McAlpin Advent Christian


Church celebrates mission month


Mr. Dick Grillo will be
the guest speaker at the
McAlpin Advent Christian
Church on Sunday, Janu-
ary 31. He is considered
the ambassador for the
Advent Christian Village
(ACV) Retirement Com-
munity in Dowling Park.
Mr. Grillo graduated
from Aurora University
with both a bachelor of
arts in music, bible and re-
ligion. For nearly 10 years
he served in areas of youth
and music ministry prior
to joining the staff of
ACV, Florida's oldest ac-
credited retirement com-
munity. He has served in
various administrative ca-
pacities since 1982. His
degrees and years of ser-
vice as a guitarist, enter-
tainer and song leader
have allowed him the op-
portunity to uniquely
blend career service skills
to those in and around the
ACV Community. In
2006, Mr. Grillo was ap-
pointed senior director of
community outreach
which allows him to serve
as an ambassador for the
Village locally and within
the denomination.
"Mr. Grillo will speak at
both the 9:45 a.m. Adult
Christian Education hour
and the 10:50 morning
worship service," said Pas-
tor Paul Bertolino. "He


will present the history of
the Village, including
Camp Suwannee Youth
Camp. Area residents are
welcome to both presenta-
tions. Mr. Grillo will also
cover the nearly century
old vision that brought


this ministry together,
which includes Mr. Dowl-
ing himself. Once again
we're fortunate to have
available to the McAlpin
Church and Suwannee
County such a profession-
ally skilled, experienced

SJulI i


representative of the
Christian community."
More information can
be obtained by calling the
pastor at 386-658-1048.
The McAlpin Church is
located at 17214 89th
Road.

Surrey Place Care Center assists with Haiti relief


Surrey Place Care Center, an affiliate of Signature
HealthCARE, has been diligently gathering donations
for those affected by the earthquake in Haiti. Through
various efforts across the Signature family of facilities,
the company has collected donations including monies,
toiletries, food, and more!
Employees spearheaded numerous initiatives to help
those affected in Haiti. The home office collected
numerous items including food, monies, toiletries,
clinical shower devices, isolation masks and linens,
protein powders, and more. The Bridge at Rockwood,

Cupid Shuff


e


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.
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
J 1Mr. X and we can help you, too. Come on in to Smile
Designs by Dr. Charlotte Gerry. We are waiting for
you!

enrollment has already
begun for the programs
and includes the 64
expansion slots.
The Early Head Start
program provides high
quality comprehensive
early childhood services,
including education,
health, dental, nutrition
and family services, for
low-income families. The
program recognizes the
critical opportunity to
positively impact children
and families in the early
years and beyond. A few
highlights of the program
include:
*Low ratios of one
teacher for every four
children, which allows
teachers to provide
individual and responsive,
care (group size of eight);
*Children receive health
screenings/exams to
ensure early detection and
follow up treatment of
health-related concerns;
*Expectant families
receive proper prenatal
and postpartum health
care, prenatal education
and breastfeeding
education;
*Parents are involved in
their child's education,
partner with the program
to establish personal goals,
participate in educational
workshops and are
involved in decisions
regarding the program's
structure, governance and
services.

Suwannee County
schools and the Attorney
General's office are
teaming up to educate
parents about the
importance 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 Education
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
constitutes 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.


Get it Together
Financially
Are you struggling to
make ends meet? Would
you like some help to "get
it together" financially?
Would you like your
partner to be able to
understand and take part in
family finances? This one-
time, three and one half-
hour course will help you
to figure out where you are
financially, where you want
to go and how to get there.
There is a $20 fee for the
materials per couple. Pre-
registration is required.
The class will be held on
Tuesday, February 16th
from 2 to 5:30 pm at
UF/IFAS Suwannee
County Extension. For
registration or more
information contact Cathy
Rogers at (386) 362-2771.

before January 29, 2010. First class starts on February

For more information or to ..i. contact the
Extension office at 386-362-2771.



Educational program for

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