If tears could build a stairway, I'd climb right up to you...and bring you home again.
Instead I'm here in sorrow and sadness without you.
No farewell words were spoken, No time for goodbyes.
You were gone before we knew it and only God knows why.
Our hearts still ache in sadness and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you, No one will ever know.
May you rest in peace until the day we are together again.
Know that you are forever loved and greatly missed.


sing My Son, Manny is the most devastating thing that has ever happened to me.
Before Manny was born, I prayed to God for a little boy.
God gave me my Manny. He was truly a gift from Heaven.
He was my shining star.
Everyone who met him just loved him; from the time he was born until the time
ie grew into a nice young man. I would have people come into my restaurant and
give me compliments about him all the time. I've always been so proud of him.
inny was so beautiful inside and out. I can't begin to tell you how much I miss him.

P ', By Ruth Ford
If you've never lost your home, your business, and all your
possessions, then you don't really know the nightmare of finding
everything you've worked for gone up in smoke. Henry Jackson
(Hank) Whisnant was away on a business trip and came back to just
that. He is trying to come to terms with the senselessness of it all.
(Arson charges have been filed in the case.) It isn't easy. It's almost
impossible not to be bitter. Wellborn, Hank's hometown for 28 years
and three months, is rallying behind him to help him slowly get re-
established.
Hank's family came from the north Georgia mountain area of
strong, loyal, dedicated mountain folks. He is proud to be one of the
"Sons of Confederate Veterans" through his grandfather, Andrew
Jackson Durden. Hank served our country in Germany and in
Vietnam for 13 years, 11 months and two days. He suffered injuries
to his lungs and ear damage while in service and is 60 percent
disabled. While he was in Germany his wife became ill and died of
a brain tumor even though he rushed her to the U.S. for treatment at
Walter Reed Hospital.
Since his discharge from the service, Hank has been self-
employed: First, he sold home improvements; then he met a man
from Colorado who became his mentor in furniture-making. Not
just any furniture, but custom-built, unique, unusual, all natural,
rustic wood furniture. Hank had collected woods (walnut, cedar,
cypress, driftwood, logs old historic wood) and many kinds of
trims to make a furniture piece with his special touch.
He had silver, gold, antlers, alligator skin and heads, rattlesnake
skins, horns, cowhide, metal horses' heads, wagon wheels for light
fixtures all hunted and hand-picked from mines, stores, flea
markets, dealers, friends from all over the United States and
beyond.

and grandparents all gone, as is an historic carved eagle on a

all (It was Hank's prize possession with undetermined monetary value.)
The unique piece had bullets and a cannon ball embedded in the
to wood from the Civil War battle. No Sons of the Confederate
ga in. Veterans could have been prouder of any possession. Hank had log
D n and custom furniture made from some of his collected woods and
S h trims-end tables, benches, a lot of war memorabilia, a unique
hat collection from all over (a top hat from San Francisco, a
"Bailey" Derby hat from Colorado, a "Charley one-horse" hat
(brand new, never worn), an Alan Jackson Stetson from Canyon
City, Colo., a collection of jewel and silver trimmed western belts, a
collection of silver boot trims, a New Zealand Sheepskin (bedspread
or rug), four leather coats, leather vests, 400+ movies (most of
about World War II and aircraft "stuff you've got to look for," he says).
rips, Hank, being a bachelor all these years, didn't get to or want to go
e to the laundry very often so he made sure he had 32 pair of jeans
of the and 32 western shirts as well as a like number of underclothes to be
nks sure he had a change of clothes for a whole month without stopping
to wash them. The list goes on and on. These are just a few of the
things in Hank's life that can never be replaced. To make matters
:hair even worse, in addition to Hank's tools, he had stored his brother's
tools and the tools from a young man who helped with the furniture.
All is now gone forever.
Wellborn is trying. Friends and neighbors have been generous in
helping him get a quick, temporary place to live on a piece of land
with no electricity that he owns just outside Wellborn. One has
loaned a travel trailer, another a generator, another a refrigerator.
The Wellborn Neighborhood Watch and the Wellborn Community
Association are accepting donations for Hank as well as planning a
combined fish fry and bake sale at the Wellborn Community Center
on the old brick road, scheduled for Friday, Jan. 8, starting at 4 p.m.,
with all the profits going to help keep Hank as our neighbor, to
isonal show him people care, and to help him get going again. There was
e City no insurance, so please come out for a fish dinner and give your
support.

Aspirin Taken Immediately for Heart Attack
A heart attack may result when a blood clot blocks blood flow through
a coronary (heart) artery. The coronary artery brings blood to the heart.
If blood flow to the heart is disrupted due to a blood clot, a portion of
the heart itself may become damaged or destroyed. The buildup of
cholesterol over time can lead to the formation of plaques in arteries,
and the narrowing of arteries, known as atherosclerosis. Signs and
symptoms of a heart attack include a sensation of pressure or squeezing
pain in the center of the chest lasting longer than a few minutes.
Shortness of breath, sweating, and nausea also may be signs of a heart
attack. Smoking, older age, diabetes, high blood pressure, and high
cholesterol can increase the risk of a heart attack. Obesity and lack of
physical activity can also increase heart attack risk.
Persons who believe they are experiencing a heart attack need to seek
emergency medical attention immediately. Nitroglycerin should be
taken as soon as possible, if available, through a prescription. Aspirin is
recommended to be taken immediately. The aspirin tablet should be
chewed when taken during a heart attack. It decreases the likelihood of
the blood clotting. Beta-blocker medications, such as metoprolol
(Toprol XL) relax the heart muscle and help prevent future heart attacks.

United Way of Suwannee Valley

awarded HUD grant renewal


Continued From Page 4A

local United Way in the 2009
McKinney-Vento homeless assistance
competition. United Way of Suwannee
Valley, as the lead agency for the
Homeless Services Network of
Suwannee Valley, garnered renewal
funding for two projects initiated
through the local United Way's original
2004 HUD McKinney-Vento homeless
assistance application. The two projects
receiving renewal funding include
United Way of Suwannee Valley's
implementation of the Homeless
Management Information System
(HMIS) and Volunteers of America of
Florida's scattered-site supported
housing units.
United Way of Suwannee Valley
received a one-year renewal of $32,146
for HMIS implementation.
"HMIS is a HUD mandated Web-
based system which collects data for
aggregate reporting," said Jenn Sawyer,
United Way of Suwannee Valley HMIS
coordinator.
Jennifer Lee, United Way of
Suwannee Valley homeless coordinator,
said the system provides an additional
benefit beyond data collection.
"The system allows homeless service
providers who are participants in the
homeless coalition to enter client data to
provide for community coordinated case
management," Lee said. "If a client
receives services at one agency, other
agencies serving the same client can be
aware of the various services the client is
receiving and provide reinforcement of
the case plan and additional services
supplementing those provided by other
agencies."
The two United Way staff members
share responsibility for local HMIS
management. Sawyer monitors HMIS
for agency entry of quality data and
advises the agencies appropriately, while
Lee focuses predominantly on aggregate
data for grant and HUD reporting
purposes.
While HUD requires local homeless
coalitions to implement a homeless
information management system for
homeless service providers to receive
grant funds, the local United Way
minimized expenses associated with this
requirement, so funds would be available
to provide services.
"Recognizing the very small amount
of funds available to our four-county
homeless coalition catchment area, when
we implemented the system locally, our
United Way coordinated with United
Way of Northeast Florida to participate
in the Northeast Florida Information
Network HMIS system," said Rita Dopp,
executive director of United Way of
Suwannee Valley.
United Way sought to meet the HUD


requirements in the most cost efficient
manner possible. Minimizing the costs
of the HMIS implementation makes
available the remaining HUD funds for
direct client services. Participating in the
neighboring United Way's system results
in a 10-county contiguous area on one
system and provides economies of scale.
United Way of Suwannee Valley's
HUD application included a Volunteers
of America of Florida project, which
received a one-year renewal of $125,789
for scattered-site supported housing for
chronically homeless veterans. The
grant provides for 11 units.
"Our local United Way continues to
focus on unmet community needs and
opportunities to address these needs,"
said Ayanna Sampson, a member of the
United Way of Suwannee Valley Board
of Directors. Sampson, in her capacity
as the VA Medical Center health care for
homeless veterans case manager, is also
a member of the Homeless Services
Network of Suwannee Valley, which
functions as a committee of the local
United Way. "Only as a result of a
successful Homeless Management
Information System implementation are
homeless continuum of care agencies
eligible to apply for state or federal
grants to assist those who are homeless
or at risk of homelessness."
Jim Moses, president of the United
Way of Suwannee Valley Board of
Directors, acknowledged our local
United Way is somewhat unique in the
amount of grant funds it secures for the
benefit of community agency services.
"Our United Way expands our
community resources by seeking grant
funds in support of targeted community
impact areas," he said. "While it may not
be uncommon for a local United Way to
seek grant funds, the amount of grant
funds leveraged by our United Way in
comparison to its community fundraising
campaign is unusual. Our board of
directors is very proud of these
accomplishments."
United Way of Suwannee Valley is a
community impact and fundraising
organization which, utilizing volunteers
on all levels, advances the common good
by identifying unmet community needs
and seeking to alleviate those needs
through United Way of Suwannee Valley
initiatives and the funding of 24
affiliated health and human service
agencies.
United Way of Suwannee Valley
serves as the lead agency for the
Homeless Services Network of
Suwannee Valley, which serves the
counties of Columbia, Suwannee,
Lafayette and Hamilton. The network
includes agencies and individuals
interested in the services available to
those who are homeless or at risk of
homelessness.

Having a


Disney day

By Jim Holmes
"It was the best of times. It was the worst of
times." Do you remember that quote from your
high school lit class all those years ago? It is, of
course, the opening to the 1859 Charles Dickens
novel, A Tale of Two Cities, which tells the epic
story about the bloody birth of democracy in
France. Can you say, "guillotine"?
I doubt it is a quote that the late Walt Disney
would have ever envisioned coming to the mind of
someone in one of his Orlando area theme parks.
And yet, it popped into my mind over the Christ-
mas holidays.
You see, I was doing my patriotic Florida duty:
escorting yet another group of out-of-state family
members to Disney World, so they could savor its
many attractions for the first time. It was "the best
of times," because I was with family members
whom I dearly love, but it was also "the worst of
times," because we were in the Magic Kingdom!
Now let me hasten to tell you (and especially
Disney's legion of attorneys) that there is absolute-
ly nothing wrong with the Magic Kingdom. The
problem is me. As a family guide to Disney theme
parks, I have experienced the many attractions too
often for my own good. Gone is the joy of waiting
in line for two hours, so as to experience a two-
minute ride down Space Mountain. Mind you, I
have come up with a method that Disney could use
to correct this problem. Just give me a check for a
thousand bucks as I disembark the ride.
In my opinion, if there was real truth in advertis-
ing, Disney Inc. would be required to change the
name The Magic Kingdom, to that of The Mob
Kingdom. Not Mob in the Tony Soprano tradition.
But Mob as in, "a BUNCH of people!" The world
population is nearly 6.7 billion folks. The last time
I was in the Magic Kingdom, I think all but 27 were
in the park. I could be wrong, however, as I lost
count after a mere 51,574. You see, I became dis-
tracted because I was worrying how many men
were still ahead of me in the line for the next avail-
able urinal.
Yes, lines are a part of life while on a Disney
World visit. But you have to give the company its
due, for they have made "line waiting" a science,
designed to make the tedium more bearable. As a
result, when you are waiting for an attraction, you
are constantly moving through a maze of ropes.
Our visit to the famed Haunted House actually be-
gan at the next attraction over, the paddle wheel
steamer.
When you first visit Disney theme parks, you are
intrigued at how clever the company is in its abili-
ty to keep folks moving. But after you have been in
the park as often as I have, you start to compare
yourself, while in a mile-long line, to a lab rat fran-
ticly searching for a slice of cheddar.
Despite Disney's innovative methods of han-
dling crowds, the long lines always take their toll.
We were waiting in yet another line this one to
escape I mean depart the Magic Kingdom via
the monorail, when I heard one clearly exhausted
and frustrated mother snap sarcastically at her
screaming child, "I'm so sorry we have made your
life miserable by dragging you to Disney World."
So, when the next group of family members
comes to visit, will I once more volunteer to serve
as Magic Kingdom guide? You bet! After all, I
love them, and going to Disney World yet again


proves it!

To the Editor:

I would like to expand on the article, "It's all or nothing
on golf carts, says city councilman," and the statement I
made as reported in the December 11, 2009 Suwannee De-
mocrat.
On December 8, 2009, the Live Oak City Council Law
Enforcement Committee met to discuss the disbursement
of grant funds for the purchase of equipment and items for
the police department.
The statement I made refers specifically to the request
for two golf carts or utility vehicles. I stated, "I don't
agree with putting a police vehicle (golf cart/utility vehi-
cle) on the streets if you can't ride a private vehicle (golf
cart/utility vehicle) on the streets." Police Chief Williams
responded, "Florida Statutes deals with that, Mr. Stewart."
My comment, "I don't care about Florida Statutes" was in
direct response to Chief Williams inferring that Florida
Statutes allow law enforcement to supersede the restric-


tions placed upon private citizens. This implication is cor-
rect. However, Florida Statutes allow municipalities to
enact ordinances (laws) that are more restrictive than state
law. The current city ordinance does not allow personal
golf carts/utility vehicles to operate on state or federal
highways. After further discussion, my last statement
dealing with this issue was, "I still say, if a citizen can't
drive their golf cart downtown, the example the police de-
partment is setting by doing it, I just don't think it's right."
In addition, I did not intend to imply nor do I support
ones disregard for the Florida Statutes of which I have
sworn to uphold.
These statements can be verified and additional insight
gained by listening to the audio minutes of the entire dis-
cussion of the committee meeting.
Thank you for allowing me to address this issue.

Station 42 in violation of fire,
electrical codes 4 l
Volunteer fire station 42 in O'Brien
was in the news for violations of state
fire and electrical codes.
According to county Public Safety
Director Charlie Conner, the station had
no firewall separating the bay the hous-
es the fire engine from the sleeping
quarters. the sleeping area has only one
exit, though Florida law requires two. In
addition, the station lacks exit and emer-
gency lights as well as an alarm system.
The station had also been under in-
vestigation for questionable spending
patterns. (See below.)

Girl, 11, dies in O'Brien crash
Staff
An 11-year-old girl was killed in
a single-vehicle crash on 89th Road
near O'Brien Saturday. Alyssa

nounced dead at the scene, the
Florida Highway Patrol said.
Alyssa was the right front pas-
senger in a 2003 Pontiac SUV dri-
ven by Nicole Marie Sallas, 24, also
of O'Brien, when the southbound
vehicle traveled onto the east
shoulder and overturned, ejecting
her, said FHP. The vehicle came to
rest after striking a pine tree with
its right side.

An investigation into question-
able spending patterns at Volun-
teer Fire Station 42 in O'Brien has
cleared station manager Tracy

cuit State Attorney Robert L.
Jarvis issued his findings in a let-
ter to sheriff's investigator Chris
Fry.

Spring flood brings
massive damage
Heavy rains in Georgia
caused the Withlacoochee
and Alapaha rivers to
flood, causing the Suwan-

feared river levels would
approach 1948 levels, the
highest on record (See

As it turned out, things
were bad, but not as bad as
they might have been. The
worst fears didn't material-

1998 levels.

Cheryl Mae Brinson, Di-
rector of Curriculum and
Instruction for Suwannee
schools, said for many oth-
ers like the Daniels the
HSCT rule change can
mean the world.
"For many years, there
was no remedy, if you
could not pass the HSCT,
then you could not receive
a diploma," Brinson said.
"It's similar to students
who fail the FCAT, but pass
portions of the ACT or SAT
according to a concordant
scores. Students can use
several combinations of
passing scores to earn a
diploma nowadays."
Local school officials
tipped their hats to the
Daniels for their persever-
ance.
Brinson said, "I think it
is absolutely the most com-
mendable act that I've seen
of individual determination
since I've been in the edu-
cational system."

Two B or

not two B

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
The college ..
football season b
is about over.
If you are a
college and pro it
football fan /
you are two B
(FootBall and FootBall)
and get the NFL playoffs
for a month. If college
football was your passion
and you like basketball of
any of the varieties: Col-
lege, Pro, Women's, still
stuff to watch for a while.
Although hockey doesn't
qualify with a B for Ball
we could substitute a B
for Barn or Boring. If you
like hockey you've got
time.
But what about the
FootBall/BaseBall guys?
These two Bs only inter-
sect August through Octo-
ber and neither operates in
February and March un-
less you are an exhibition-
ist. Now golf (GolfBall
qualifies) may fill some of
the down time but Sunday
afternoons of grown men
with foreign accents whis-
pering is a far cry from
the two-minute warning.
Some people, usually
men (they often qualify as
people), spend this down
time hunting woodland

abyss of our lakes and
rivers looking for some-
thing to eat. Some actual-
ly do yard work or go
shopping as their penance
for six months of football.
Alas, theirs is another
sport. The other sport has
a B. NASCAR is coming.
Nextel and ARCA are on


their way. You may ask
where's the "B," as there
is no ball in racing unless
it's a ball joint. I don't
claim to know much about
this car stuff but any sport
that has a beer named after
its stars can't be all bad.
Kyle and Kurt Busch must
be some good drivers.
The "B" is as prominent
in this sport as it is to Ball
in the other sports. This
goes beyond "The Brady
Bunch," named after Tom
Brady, and "Peyton
Place," named after Pey-
ton Manning, whose
brother has a song "Eli's
Coming" and whose dad
has a comic strip,
"Archie." And some peo-
ple say there is no such

that other "B," you say?

Adaptation and mitigation

motivate wildlife managers


By Patricia Behnke
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
MyFWC.com


Despite some of the drama that
emerged during the United Nations
Climate Change Conference in Co-
penhagen in December, the leaders of
the world's major polluters Brazil,
India, China, South Africa and the
United States agreed on a compro-
mise with a nonbinding agreement.
Some thought the agreement a good
step; others were not so sure. German
Chancellor Angela Merkel told the
media that the outcome in Copen-
hagen was a first step toward a
"new world climate order, noth- a
ing more but also nothing less."
That seems to be the consensus w
among many of the 193 nations u
represented at the summit.
The accord states that green-
house gas emissions must be
reduced enough to prevent aver-
age global temperatures from
rising more than 2 degrees Celsius.
It is a major accomplishment to have
such disparate nations agreeing that
something must be done and giving
it a name. It is now up to the folks
on the ground to do the real work on
mitigating climate change impacts
while adapting to those changes al-
ready in place.
As I sift through the reports from
across the sea, I ponder what it all
means in terms of Florida and wildlife
in particular. The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission's
(FWC) climate change working groups
are weighing the strategies that fall
into two categories: adaptation or
mitigation, or maybe both.
"For a long time we've been discuss-
ing everything in terms of adapta-
tion," said Doug Parsons, FWC's
climate change coordinator. "But we
also are involved in mitigation activi-


ties whenever we take degraded or
destroyed habitat and bring it back to
a state that will sustain wildlife."
Any habitat that brings back life
in and of itself is contributing to the
lessening of carbon emissions. In
Florida, we're doing this as a natural
part of wildlife management.
"Doing what we know is healthy
for wildlife and habitat means we are
doing what is healthy for humans as
well," Parsons said. "Even though the
scientists agree that climate change is
a reality, when we manage for resil-
ience and adaptation, we are making
wise choices for our future as resi-
dents of Florida."
Adaptation goes along with the
belief that climate change is beyond
changing all we can do is make the

Doing what we know is healthy for
wildlife and habitat means we are doint
vhat is healthy for humans as well."
-Doug Parson
FWC climate change coordinate


best of the situation. The strategies
that help wildlife adapt to a changing
climate include such things as creat-
ing connectivity between habitats
and providing corridors for wildlife to
travel. Anticipating the fluctuation of
the human population moving inland
also is crucial to helping both humans
and wildlife adapt. I received an e-
mail the other day from someone who
wrote, "Why are we worrying about
the wildlife when humans are going
to be having an equally hard time
adapting?"
It's something I hear frequently.
And the answer lies in our connection
with wildlife. If native wildlife disap-
pears, if habitats become unhealthy,
if seas cover what is now livable land,
there is not much hope for healthy
humans either, unless we work now to
adapt. We will be impacted physically,
environmentally, socially and econom-


ically. The depletion of native wildlife
will have reverberations across the
whole spectrum of human existence.
As the world's nations came to-
gether to look at the big picture,
others are already at work making
good management decisions. A part-
nership between four states in the
southeastern United States will assist
with adaptability, while mitigating
the effects of carbon emissions. The
FWC, along with agencies from Ala-
bama, Georgia and South Carolina,
received grant money from the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service to increase
the quality, quantity and connectivity
of priority sandhill sites in the four
states. More than 38,500 acres of san-
dhill habitat will be restored through
prescribed fire, removal of vegetation
not conducive to the habitat and
the replanting of longleaf pine.
This habitat improvement will
g be welcoming to species such as
gopher tortoises and native bird
species.
In addition, Florida and Ala-
)r bama are working together, along
with The Nature Conservancy, to
create a natural corridor, which
will assist wildlife as they adapt to
climate change by moving to climates
that are more hospitable.
This project represents one of the
best examples of adaptation and miti-
gation by providing healthy habitat
that will sequester carbon emissions
rather than disperse them into the
atmosphere.
"By using appropriate management
to restore habitat quality and connec-
tivity, we're adding to the resiliency of
Florida's wildlife," said Anna Farmer,
FWC biologist and co-author of the
grant. "This will ensure that during
climate change, Florida's wildlife will
be able to weather the storm."
It may not be on the world stage,
but it is conservation at its best, right
where it counts.

Jekyll Island to celebrate the opening


of first new hotel since 1974


JEKYLL ISLAND, Ga. On Thursday the Jekyll Is-
land Authority will celebrate the opening of the Hampton
Inn and Suites, the first new hotel to open on Jekyll Is-
land since 1974. The 138-room beachfront property will
be jointly owned by Jekyll Ocean Oaks, LLC, the owner-
operator of the Jekyll Island Club Hotel.
The new facility will offer 138 guest rooms, 88 of
which are suites with balconies. Amenities include a lob-
by bar, beach access, revitalized nature trails, an expan-
sive pool deck, a kid's pool, and a large hot tub. The ho-
tel, which utilizes solar panels for water heating, will be
a member of the Green Hotel Association, a group of en-
vironmentally friendly properties whose managers are ea-
ger to institute programs that reduce solid waste and save
water and energy.
The opening of the Hampton Inn & Suites is the first
of several projects intended to bring about the revitaliza-
tion of Jekyll Island. The Jekyll Island Authority official-
ly broke ground on the beach village project on Dec. 7
with a ceremony attended by Governor Sonny Perdue,
state dignitaries and hundreds of guests. Construction is
now underway for the new 20-acre Great Dunes Park,
which along with a new 78,000-square-foot convention
center will be a key component of the new beach village.
The facility will be integrated into its natural beachfront
location in a manner that minimizes impact on the envi-
ronment while creating a wonderful and unique guest ex-
perience. Also included in the plans are improvements to
the island's entry corridor. Improvements will take ad-

Children's oral care is something
many parents are concerned
about year-round, but there are
also several times during the year
when oral care is especially
important. For example,
Halloween, the winter holidays,
Valentine's Day and Easter are all
large candy-eating times in the
year, making it essential to take
the time now to teach children
the importance of maintaining
good oral health.

"Tooth decay is the most
common chronic childhood
disease, so it's important to teach
children effective tooth brushing
habits, especially around the
holidays, when children are
typically consuming more sweets
than usual," says dentist and
mom Dr. Jennifer Salzer.

Oral care isn't usually a top
priority for children and teeth
cleaning may even be considered
a chore to kids, which is why it is
so important for parents to get
involved and teach children the
importance of proper oral care
early on in their children's lives.
To make oral care more fun for
children, Dr. Salzer offers some

of her best tips:

* Parents should brush their teeth
with their child to set a good
example. It also helps children to
learn by watching and imitating
their parent.

* Sing your child's favorite song,
like "Twinkle Twinkle Little
Star," or play a song from their
favorite singer for the two
minutes while they are brushing
their teeth.

* Give your child a toothbrush
that is designed to appeal to a
toddler who is learning to brush
and whose baby teeth are
growing in, like Oral-B Stages 2,
which is designed to effectively
reach all teeth, with its narrow
head, simple bristle pattern and
Power Tip.

- For younger children, when
their first teeth begin to appear,
parents should brush teeth using a
child-sized, soft-bristled
toothbrush with a cushioned head
to help protect babies' tender
gums, like Oral-B Stage 1
toothbrush.

* It's important that children two
and older use fluoridated
toothpaste to help prevent decay
as their teeth continue to develop.
One such toothpaste, Oral-B
Stages, provides effective cavity
protection in a kid-tested, mild
formula gel that comes in fun
flavors that kids love, like "Fruit
Burst" or "Princess Bubblegum."
