Mother of teen


takes the stand


By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com

Plaintiff Yvette Hannon was
the first to take the stand Monday
afternoon in the civil case regard-
ing her son Nathan Hannon, who
was declared brain dead October
29, 1999 and passed away days
later, following complications
with a shunt that drained fluid
from his brain. Here is a brief
summation of her testimony.
When asked by her attorney
Christian Searcy how important
her son Nathan was to her, Yvette
Hannon said:
"If he wasn't important, I
wouldn't be here today. He was


the joy, light of my life, my boy,
a very special young man and I
was extremely proud of him."
She recalled the events of Oct.
29.
She woke up to the sound of
her husband Rick Hannon and
son Nathan talking. It was unusu-
ally early for Nathan to be up al-
ready, she said.
"Nathan told Rick he hadn't
eaten at all the day before," and
Rick was scolding Nathan for go-
ing without eating, she said.
"I had checked his neck pump,
and it was fine," she said. It rein-
flated like it was supposed to, she

Home invasion follows familiar pattern


More than 25 such crimes recorded in '09


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
A Hispanic man was struck in
the head and robbed of $30 after
two armed men forced their way
into his home Wednesday morn-
ing, according to Live Oak Police


Det. Sgt. Ron Shaw.
Shaw said the case will be re-
ported as a home invasion rob-
bery. More than 25 such inva-
sions targeted the Hispanic com-
munity last year. This one follows
the same pattern, according to
Shaw.


Chosen from
among her peers,
this year's top
teacher knows
shared knowledge
endures


"The couple broke in while the
guy was asleep," said Shaw.
The invasion took place at Lot
70 of the Live Oak Pines trailer
park on East Duval Street in Live
Oak around 9:30 a.m.
Shaw said two black males,
dressed in black and wearing ski
masks, broke in and demanded
cash. The victim was struck in the


head once by one of the suspects,
but was not seriously injured, said
Shaw. One of the suspects was
armed with a handgun, the other a
hatchet, Shaw reported.
The suspects are described as
about five feet five inches tall and
in their early twenties. Anyone
with information is asked to call
the LOPD at 386-362-7463.

Full house for talk on Constitution


Kris Anne Hall, Third Circuit Assistant State
Attorney, and a former attorney with the Christian Law
Association, addressed Suwannee County Republicans
recently at City Hall on the topic of "originalism" in
Constitutional interpretation. Originalism, which Hall


endorses, is an effort to determine the original intent of
a text or law.
"We have given up our voice for comfort and
services," said Hall, who compared federal funding to
a "drug."


Hall is a graduate of the UF School of Law.
Next month's speaker will be Elizabeth Porter,
Republican candidate for the District 11 Florida House
seat now held by Debbie Boyd. The meeting is set for
Thursday, March 4, at 7 p.m. at Live Oak City Hall.

EXTENSION UPDATE



The wonderful world of fiber


By Katherine Allen
UF/IFAS Suwannee County
Extension Director

Fiber has become a common
joke as I have gotten older.
Interestingly, it has become
more mainstream and even
trendy, especially when you
look at grocery aisles filled with
juices, yogurt, and crackers that
are labeled to tout their "added
fiber." Believe it or not, some frozen dinners are starting
to include it on the front of their packaging as a
marketing strategy. With good reason! Although I also
teach canning and indoor air quality, I can't wait to share
some of the things I am continuing to learn and teach in
our weight management classes.

Fiber is good
Fiber gives the feeling of fullness. The feeling of
fullness is not due to calories. If you eat a meal high in
calories, you can gain weight even if you don't feel full.
Eating smaller portions and weights of foods only works
if you are eating high quality foods. If you feel full,
you'll have less room for the high calorie foods. Fiber


also makes you feel fuller longer because it slows the
emptying of the stomach. Here's great news, fiber
contains no calories!

Fad diets
While watching a recent Oprah episode on dieting with
my co-leader Cathy, we heard a fellow talk about those
high calorie foods we all love and eat too much of, like
French fries, ice cream, candies, and baked goods. His
suggestion, which the more I thought about, the more I
liked, was that you can eat those foods only if you make
them at home. Think about it. If you had to make the ice
cream every time you wanted some, how many times a
month do you think you would eat it? Realistically, the
number of times you would go through the hassle to
make French fries or chocolate cake, is probably the
number of times we should be eating it!

I always get concerned when a new "diet" comes out
where you only eat one food item (a la, the Cabbage
Soup diet) or where you completely eliminate a food
category. Our bodies need the variety provided through
fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, etc. I am also concerned
with weight loss companies that will provide you with
pre-packaged foods. So, what happens when you no
longer want to purchase the foods or are financially


unable? Typically, because the portions and calories are
strictly controlled you lose weight. The problem is you
don't learn how to lose weight and incorporate healthy
eating habits. As a result, when the controlled food ends,
the weight reappears.

Did you know?
There is no fiber in a Twinkie
Fiber lowers your risk of heart attack and stroke.
Because foods with fiber (typically plant-based foods like
fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans and whole grains) contain
antioxidants, phytochemicals, omega-3 fatty acids,
potassium, and low sodium! In other words, they deliver
a wide array of the micronutrients your body needs to
function properly.
Fiber reduces the risk of diabetes. Sugar spikes,
which trigger the pancreas to produce insulin, are reduced
by soluble fiber.
Sugar has no fiber.
Not only does fiber help with constipation, but it also
can work as a diarrhea treatment by absorbing the liquid
in the colon.

or other nutrition facts, contact Katherine at the UF/IFAS
Suwannee County Extension office at 386/362-2771

OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat


A sense


of urgency
City Council President Mark Stewart
opened the discussion on OMI Tuesday
night by asking the council to take up a
different issue altogether whether to out-
source public works operations at all.
The proposed motion, though "that the
city of Live Oak continue to outsource its
public works department" would be
moot, noted city attorney Erny Sellers. The
council had already voted at a previous
meeting to negotiate with OMI and then
decide whether to seek competitive bids on
the $2.4 million pact. Taking back public
works wasn't on the table.
That wasn't what Stewart was about,
though. It was "finality" he was after, he
said. In other words, let's decide the ques-
tion of outsourcing once and for all. And
let's do it tonight.
There's only one problem with that.
Legally, it's a meaningless gesture. As Sell-
ers explained, an elected body cannot vote
to bind its future members to any given
course of action.
And thank goodness that's the case. The
idea that an elected official should be able
to control the actions of those who might
hold his seat in the future, is anti-democrat-
ic in the extreme. That a motion making
such a thing possible was actually made
(by Ed Rewis) and seconded (by David
Burch) is even more troubling.
We're not sure why the issue of perpetual
outsourcing was suddenly so important
Tuesday night. But we do hope Mr. Stewart
brings that same sense of urgency to the
table Feb. 18, when the council once again
takes up the issue of OMI. Stewart says
he's "on the fence" about whether to put
the contract out for bids. We recommend
he make up his mind soon. City voters
want his answer before the May 4 elec-
tions.

An important event will
take place at the First United
Methodist Church on Febru-
ary 18 at 6:00 pm. The pro-


gram deals with the dangers .
to your children concerning
their activities on the Internet.
Each day, 77 million of our
young people use the Internet
and one out of every seven
will be sexually solicited on- BY SONNY
line. That is scary. The pro-
gram will teach parents how to identify potential threats
that could endanger your child and give tips and secu-
rity measures for their safety. I encourage parents and
even grandparents to attend. It may even be better to
bring your youngster so they can hear it from the
horse's mouth.
I made it through the Super Bowl for a change. I'm
glad TV coverage started earlier than some years past.
I didn't watch the game from start to finish. I was back
and forth. Too much other good stuff to watch, yeah
sure. I have always been a Colt fan, a Baltimore Colt
fan. I remember watching the Colts when I was a
youngster. Watching Johnny U and the other Colt stars
was great. Man could those boys play some football. I
was glad to see the Saints win since they had never
been there before. I thought about Suwannee High,
FSU and Saints standout Dale Williams I'm sure Dale
had a smile on his face up in heaven. Believe it or not,


Rave

going on for years, thanks to our county commission-
ers. Why? Because the county doesn't make money on
the recycling. Every community should have access to
convenient recycling facilities. When people in a com-
munity go to the trouble to separate their recycling and
feed it into the recycling bins provided by the county,
they should be assured that this is actually being recy-
cled. By placing the bins at the collection sites, the
county is falsely advertising a service that they are not
providing. Dumping the collected recyclable items in
with the rest of the garbage to send to the landfill is not
only environmentally irresponsible, it is downright dis-
honest and borders on political malfeasance. Our coun-
ty commissioners should be held accountable. Thank
you.

MAYOR'S
CORNER


I can actually remember Super
Bowl I. Man how time passes.
Take It To Heart Day is Feb-
ruary 16. It's important that we


all learn how to live a healthi-
er life so the "old ticker" will
Keep pumping. As I have got-
ten older, I have tried to live a
healthier life style. Have you
noticed the things you enjoy
qOBLES eating the most are the things
that may cause the greatest
health problems. It's hard to turn away from those pota-
toes and a good piece of red meat. I can eat just so
much salad and chicken. I start feeling like a rabbit with
pinfeathers. I have lost a few pounds here lately. It's
been pretty easy. I watched my diet and stopped eating
like a hog. Heart problems are one of the biggest killers
in our society. It's also important that one learns to rec-
ognize the warning signs of stroke and heart attack. Get
your physical, stay attuned to your body and pay at-
tention to what it is telling you. If you feel there is a
problem, get medical help immediately. Time is so im-
portant in survival and treatment. Wear your red on the
16th as a reminder and show of support.

The Word




of God in




rap CD (or:




'rhapsody')


Branford preacher

finds innovative ways

to share God's Word


By Joyce Marie Taylor
Correspondent

Augusto Perez isn't
your ordinary preacher.
In fact, nothing about this
man is ordinary. Born in
Cuba in 1951, he came to
the U.S. with his family
in 1963 and has made
this coun-
try his
home ever
since. Au-
gusto, has
been
spreading
the gospel
for close to
30 years to
anyone
who will
listen.
On any
given Sun-
day at 2 o'- Augusto Perez
clock, you
may find him inside a
meeting hall in Branford
with like-minded friends
who have gathered
around for a time of fel-
lowship. You won't hear
a typical sermon, nor will
you see any gimmicks,
showboating or manmade
rituals. However, you
will be enlightened.
You'll get caught up in
his stories, as he inter-
prets the Bible in lay-
man's terms with rele-
vance to your life and
those around you. You'll
come away from these
meetings with new in-
sights regarding current
events, as well as events
that happened according
to the books of Genesis
through Revelations.
After spending many
years in Miami working
as a civil engineer then
hosting a radio ministry
for three years, Augusto
received a calling from a
higher power to bring his
ministry to other parts of
the globe. His travels
have taken him to many
foreign lands, such as
Colombia, Honduras,
Nicaragua, Mexico, Puer-
to Rico and Canada, to
name a few. Once a year,
he also visits his home-
land of Cuba. He has
made appearances in
Georgia, the Carolinas,
Texas, Idaho, Ohio, Penn-
sylvania, Connecticut,
New York, Arkansas,
Louisiana, Mississippi,
Alabama, and Tennessee,
as well as numerous
cities within the Suwan-
nee Valley.
The pages of his Bible
are worn and passages
are highlighted from be-


ginning to end, so there is
no doubt that he knows
the book inside and out.
It has been said that
signs, wonders and mira-
cles follow this man
wherever he goes. He is
not looking to build a
church. On the contrary,
he wants to build people
and leaders.
He wants to
help them
discover
their calling
in life, iden-
tify their
gifts, and
assist them
in achieving
them.
"Nobody
has every-
thing," he
said in a re-
cent Bible
study group.
"We all have blinders, so
sharing thoughts in a
group setting is good."
Augusto is well spo-
ken, articulate, and says
he is dedicated to spread-
ing the Word of God. It
was just such a revelation
that brought him to Live
Oak in 1992, he said,
leaving behind friends,
family, his ministry and a
city that he had called
home for 26 years. His
mother and father-in-law,
Lucy and Fausto, joined
Augusto and his family in
Live Oak in 1995. In
2003 and 2004, he hosted
two tent revivals in
downtown Live Oak with
eight different churches
participating.
Aside from his min-
istries, he has written
three books and produced
three CDs, which might
surprise you. Most likely
you have never heard the
Gospel in rap format be-
fore, but when you do,
you will definitely be im-
pressed. His Web site,
www.theappearance.com
has massive amounts of
information about the
man and his ministry, as
well as free audios dis-
cussing over 30 different
topics. There are also
newsletters and articles
for pastors-in-training.
Augusto has many sto-
ries to tell about his trav-
els and the people he has
met in his lifetime, and
each one has a message
that you can take to heart.
With his wife, Yvette, and
his children, Benjamin
and Charis by his side, he
says his goal is, and has
always been, to spread
the Word of God.

the Lenten season," said Pastor Paul A. Bertolino. "This is so important
to us and we want to include as many as possible from our community
and Suwannee County. All children will receive a daily devotional cor-
responding with the adults so families can learn to pray together."
The church is also planning to begin a membership/baptism class on
Feb. 21 at 9:45 a.m. and will be team taught by the pastor and the Rev.
Dr. David Dean. Dr. Dean's book, Resurrection Hope, will be used for

Food for Thought

GUIDES FOR GROWTH
We understand there is something wrong with a
child who does not grow. But what about the
Christian who doesn't grow?
1) What Do We Need To Forsake? In II Peter
2:1 Peter said there are some things we need to
lay aside. Things like malice, deceit, hypocrisy,
envy and evil speaking. For the Christian, part of
growing is changing!
2) What Must We Become? In II Peter 2:2
Peter continues: we must have proper food. What
do we feed our mid? Our heart? Our soul? We are
all affected by what we take in. peter said we
should desire the word of God. We should be
eager and longing to be fed God's word!
3) Who Will We Follow? In II Peter 2:21 Peter
reminds us to follow in the footsteps of Jesus!
Having heroes is a part of childhood and growing
up. Who do we idolize today? The Bible tells us
to keep our eyes on Jesus because He is the
author and finisher of our faith [Heb. 12:2]. The
Hebrew writer rebukes those who refuse to grow-
up [Heb. 5:12-6:2]. Christians are to grow, to
mature in Christ. To change from being like the
world to being the child of God!

Rant


Rave


Continued From Page 6A

M
Hello, this in regards to the dress code at
Suwannee Middle School and other
schools as well. My child has complained
numerous times about the boys wearing
their pants down past their buttocks. Yes-
terday, I was told one of the boys was
bragging about his underwear. He pulled
up his shirt to show his underwear. Shame
on him. My child is tired of this nonsense.
This is very inappropriate at school. The
administration must not care because I
myself have seen this type of inappropriate
dress at the middle school myself on nu-
merous occasions. Well, school board,
enough is enough, what are you going to
do to correct this indecent dress of your
students? Thank you.
M
We have some projects going on that
are going to defeat each other if not han-
dled correctly. These all involve grant
money that could be wasted on the loop
rd., the new industrial park & downtown
redevelopment. The loop will get trucks
out of town, but probably cars also. If that
road was zoned industrial, not
retail/comm., and infrastructure put in
place for indust. developement,then
trucks & future manufacturing jobs etc.
would have access to the highways &
square mis. of land, eliminating the need
to spend tax dollars on the business park.
Downtown needs a facelift, entertain-
ment,retail,& recreational type business-
es to take hold & grow. This will require
the liquor law to be scrapped completely
& the civic/ political leaders to provide
comprehensive & intelligent zoning. This
is something they obviously are not capa-
ble of doing, so we must get people who
are in these positions. This willy-nilly ap-
proach of running around throwing tax $$
in different directions is going nowhere.
We need to put ALL purchasing and
maint. work up for bid & require at least
3 bids prior to awarding, and award to the
low bidder, not your buddies. Keep our
younger folks here, encourage growth&
competition in retail areas, allow folks
personal choices & quit sucking up grant
money all the time.
M
It is obvious Mr. Burch was added to the
city council based on his blind support of
OMI.
Mr. Burch is either uninformed or mis-
informed. He is worried about people los-
ing their jobs. When Councilmen Yulee,
Blake, Boyette, and Duce gave us OMI
they didn't show any great passion for
public works employees who were or were
about to be vested in Florida retirement.
They did however ask OMI to hire the ex-
isting workers. If the city were to out-
source it's public works to another compa-
ny they would also be asked to take the ex-


isting employees. If you are really con-
cerned about local jobs why not have the
city take the public works department back
do you think the profit OMI makes stays in
Suwannee County? It is obvious you be-
lieve everything OMI has told you and
don't even care to explore your options or
bid process. I would venture to say Mr.
Burch you have never seen an OMI bill or
an out of scope project. Before spending
$2,400,000 do your own homework.
M E
I have a question for the county com-
missioners and I would like to have an an-
swer. Does anybody understand the rank-
ing procedure?
If you were to go to the FL BAR web-
page and look at the 2 attorneys qualifica-
tion you would see that the lowest ranked
attorney had the highest qualification?
lowest ranked attorney had Administrative
law and Workers Compensation? Maybe
you could have cut out some taxpayers
money because Suwannee County pays a
Workers Compensation attorney in Talla-
hassee? Maybe the persons) that adds up
the scores does not understand the ranking
procedure?
ME
The Suwannee Foundation For Excel-
lence in Education recently recognized
Mrs. Nannette Bunce as Teacher of The
Year for 2009-10. Mrs. Bunce from Bran-
ford High School aptly represents the oth-
er finalists and dedicated teaching corps
from Suwannee County schools. The
foundation is another example of the many
parents, business and booster organiza-
tions that generously support the sincere
efforts of teachers, support personnel and
administrators throughout the county.
Positive partnerships have resulted in this
being rated a "B" school district because
of increased student performance keep
up the hard work everyone!
ME
If our voter turn out wasn't so pathetic
here, we might just be able to do some-
thing besides gripe. We have commission-
ers in office year after year with less than
20% of the possible vote. This is majority
rule? We need term limits and salary caps
on all elected or app't. officials at all lev-
els of gov't. We also need run off elections
on a local level requiring a clear 51% ma-
jority, period! These people take it for
granted that the positions they get elected
to are lifetime careers, not public service. I
don't know about you, but they sure as hell
ain't Lcl iii;" me, unless you like being
ripped off and told what to do by a very
small group of the "good ol' boys". GO
VOTE, every chance ya git!
M m
What kind of lesson are we teaching our
young people when students at Suwannee
High labor to collect recyclables only to
have our county officials send them to the
landfill! Shame on Suwannee County!

No wonder the sides of our roads look like
a dump. I faithfully take newspapers, met-
al cans and glass to the collection site
("dump") and place them in the igloos,
thinking I an making an effort to help our
environment. I guess the joke is on me,
just as the students. At least, I got smart
and collected my aluminum cans and drop
them off at the local recycle business, and
receive a few dollars in return. No won-
der people lose faith in government at
all levels.

Today (2/5/2010) on my lunch break
(around noon) I was driving down Hevel-
ston St. in Live Oak. In front of me was a
brown truck going about 20 mph (assum-
ing it was because of the rain). Behind me
was a vehicle that kept swerving trying to
pass. I didn't intend to pass because of the
wet roads and I would be turning soon.
Right before the pet store (about 50 feet or
so) I turned on my L blinker. When it was
clear I started to turn going to Dr. Man-
tooth's office. As I was turning the crazy
driver behind me sped past and tore off my
front bumper. Instead of stopping or slow-
ing down he hit the gas, somewhat fish
tailing, and passed the brown truck that
was in front of me. It was a 4-door bur-
gundy car w/ dark tinted windows (maybe
a Pontiac?). The year was probably late
'90's early 2000's. They would have dam-
age done to their front right side. I could-
n't get back into the lane to get the tag #
because of oncoming traffic. What really
gets to me is there were several other cars
in the area and no one else stopped. If any-
one knows anything about this accident I
would appreciate the help of someone
coming forward. The cops didn't find the
other car. I drive a black 4-door Jimmy (w/
a now torn off front bumber).
M m
I just can't understand it. A couple of
weeks ago some neighbors and I spent
part of an afternoon picking up garbage
from one of our neighborhood roads. We
only got to clean 3 or 4 hundred yards
but at least it was a start. It was the usu-
al selection; fast food boxes, wrappers
and cups, beer bottles, beer cans, beer
cartons, and the occasional full bag of
household garbage, strewn about by ani-
mals. We had cleaned here before so this
trash had all been thrown out of cars and
trucks in the last year or so. Still, we col-
lected a full pick-up bed worth. Within a
week a new fresh bag of garbage had
been dumped in the stretch we had
cleaned.
What I can't understand is the mentality
that makes a person think that throwing
trash out on the road is acceptable. I've
heard beer drinkers blame the open con-


trainer laws. I guess others feel like 2 miles
is too far to drive to the dump. And heav-
en forbid that the KFC packaging has to
stay in your car all the way home.
To the litterers: Your community is
ashamed of you. Your neighbors are
ashamed of you. If your friends know you
litter, some of them are ashamed of you. If
you family knows you litter, some of them
are ashamed of you.You should be
ashamed of yourself. And I don't know a
whole lot about Jesus but I bet he doesn't
approve, either. PLEASE TAKE YOUR
TRASH HOME.

How was the economy stimulated by the
federal government giving money to the
Live Oak Police Department to purchase
items like tables, vests, printers, and a
'gator?' Who now has a job because of
this grant?

Can anyone explain to me why a single
person who has no job, no income, no ed-
ucation and no husband willingly gets
pregnant? Then, she expects others to pro-
vide the food (WIC and food stamps,)
clothing (churches, relatives, friends,
FREECYCLE,) shelter (living with rela-
tives, Housing Authority of Live Oak, Sec-
tion 8, free or subsidized utilities,) med-
ical (free pre-natal, birth, well-baby check-
ups, MEDICAID) and free breakfasts and
lunches at school, as well as free after-
school care? She's 'poor' yet has a car, air
conditioning, and cigarettes. The 'poor' in
Haiti would love to change places with
her.
M m
Hats off to SHS and their Environmen-
tal Club, I also am a avid recycler.
I was appalled by the info I read on this
issue. If the newspapers go straight to the
landfill then why have a bin for them.We
think we're doing something good for the
environment & then we find out
NOT.Let's ALL sign this petition, so we

GAMETIME


By Cody Webb
One of the most
anticipated games of this
year is the sequel to Mass
Effect, a science fiction
role-playing game that
turned out to be an instant
hit. Which is no surprise,
given how good Bioware's
role-playing games
usually are. Mass Effect 2
doesn't fail to meet
expectations, and even
improves in all of the right
places.
First things first: where
would Mass Effect be
without an epic story? The
sequel certainly provides
one of the best storylines
I've ever seen in a game.
A word to the wise
though: if you have the
chance, play the first
game again. Do
everything just the way
you want and then let it
save after the credits roll,


you'll be able to use this
character in the second
game. The main reason for
this suggestion is that the
sequel's "generic"
storyline is horrible, and
you'll miss out on a lot of
reunions if you don't
import your character
from the first game.
Anyway, back to the story.
It starts off with a bang,
the Normandy being
horribly, horribly
destroyed by an unknown
enemy vessel. After
getting most of the crew
off of the ship and into the
escape pods, the main
character Shepard is
killed. You heard me right,
the best hope for humanity
is killed in the opening of
the sequel. Never fear,
though, your body is
found by Cerberus, a pro-
human group from the
first game who spend two
years reviving Shepard.
This is a brilliant way to
allow players to change
their character's
appearance or class, if
they so choose to.
Shortly after this tragic
introduction, players are
thrust into combat. It is
here that one of the


I Unbeatable Oualitv At Unbeatable Prices I


biggest improvements
comes to light: the combat
mechanics are vastly
improved. If you have the
crosshairs aimed at an
enemy, you will hit that
enemy. No dice rolls, no
luck; combat is now just
like a third-person shooter.
Because of this, weapon
stats have been scrapped
and you will always fight
at maximum efficiency
with whatever weapons
your class can use. The
overheating weapon
system from the first game
has been replaced with a
more traditional system:
weapons now take
"thermal clips" to prevent
overheating. Think of it as
reloading in any other
shooter.
Another result of the
improved combat would
be the removal of the
various armor skills. Now
any class can use any
armor type, which is done
by customizing your
armor at various
terminals. You can mix
and match any piece of
armor to have the bonuses
fit your playstyle, or just
for looks. You can also
change the color and
patterns on your armor,
adding that little extra
layer of customization.
Once gamers get hold of
the fantastic combat, they
are introduced to a couple
of characters. The
conversation trees from
the first game make a
return and are largely
unchanged, players still
pick what response they'd
like Shepard to say. The
biggest improvement is
the new camera angles
during conversations.
Gone are the static shots
from the original game,
now the camera has a
more cinematic flair. It
moves around while the
characters do, making the
conversations with the
various people you'll meet
just like watching small
movies.
After this intuitive and
well-disguised tutorial,


players find themselves
on the Normandy SR-2
with a familiar and
friendly face. This new,
upgraded version of the
original Normandy is
much larger and has more
features. An amusing new
edition would be the
Captain's Quarters: your
own personal room that
you can use to change
your armor and check
your personal computer,
as well as keep some pet
fish. The rest of the new
areas are mainly used for
housing the team you're
tasked to recruit, but one
noteworthy area would be
the science lab. Here you
can purchase upgrades for
yourself, your ship and
your team.
Speaking of your team,
for most of this game


players will be recruiting
many interesting and
varied characters. Most of
your original crew is busy
or just not around, though
you do run into some
familiar faces throughout
the story. You don't want
to fight the newest threat
to the galaxy by yourself
do you? Of course you
don't! Shepard will
definitely want to earn the
loyalty of these new
recruits, they all have
interesting backstories.
You need their help if you
want to survive the game.
The only really low point
I can think of for Mass
Effect 2 is the exploring
planets for resources.
Every once in awhile
you'll find a planet with a
small side-mission, but
most of the time you'll be


slowly scanning each
planet and probing it for
resources to buy
upgrades. The Mako
vehicle from the first
game is gone, replaced by
a shuttle that ferries you
down to planets that you
can't pilot. So would I
recommend Mass Effect
2? Most definitely! If
you're a fan of the first
game, or even just a fan
of science fiction in
general, you'd be an idiot
to overlook this beauty of
an RPG. Bioware has
shown they're capable of
listening to gamers'
responses and upgrading
accordingly, and
personally, I cannot wait
for Mass Effect 3. I give
Mass Effect 2 an A, and
remember gamers, keep
those game saves!

Registry of Persons


with Special Needs

According to Chapter 252.355 Florida Statutes, "in order to meet the
special needs of persons who would need assistance during
evacuations and sheltering because of physical, mental or sensory
disabilities, each local emergency management agency in the state
shall maintain a registry of persons with special needs located
within the jurisdiction of the local agency."

This registration helps the local Emergency Management Agency to
identify those persons in need of assistance and to plan for resource
allocation to meet those needs. This program gives persons with
special needs the option of preauthorizing emergency response
personnel to enter their homes during search and rescue operations
if necessary to assure their safety and welfare following disasters.

If you or someone you know has a special condition affecting
eyesight, hearing, speech, walking, breathing or has an emotional
condition and would need assistance during evacuations and
sheltering, please contact your local emergency management
agency. The level of care given in special needs shelters goes above
the basic first aid care available to shelters open to the general
population.

All information given will be kept strictly confidential.

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL
HEALTH DEPARTMENT


February 7-13 is National


Burn Awareness Week


By Mary Ward
Suwannee County Health Department
Fire and bur injuries are the
second leading cause of accidental
death in children aged one to four
years, and the third leading cause of
injury and death for those aged one to
eighteen. Scald burns (caused by hot
liquids, steam or foods) are the most
common bur injury among children
age 4 and younger.
While the injuries and the numbers
are distressing, even more disturbing
is the fact that many of these burns
could have been prevented.

Burn Prevention Tips
When using water from the tap
turn COLD water on first. Then add
HOT water and adjust the
temperature. Reverse the order when
turning water off: HOT water first,
then the COLD water.
Always test young children's bath
and sink water before using. When
bathing children, never leave them
unattended as they may turn on the
hot water or slip in your absence.
Be very careful when drinking
HOT liquids such as coffee or cocoa,
especially around children. At 140"F,
it takes less than five seconds to get a
third degree (full thickness) burn.

virtue of their thinner skin, sustain
severe burs at lower temperatures
and in less time than an adult does.

For major burns, call 911 or
emergency medical help. Until an
emergency unit arrives, follow these
steps:
Don't remove burned clothing.
However, do make sure the victim is
no longer in contact with smoldering
materials or exposed to smoke or
heat.
Don't immerse large severe burns
in cold water. Doing so could cause a
drop in body temperature
(hypothermia) and deterioration of
blood pressure and circulation
(shock).
Check for signs of circulation
(breathing, coughing or movement). If
there is no breathing or other sign of
circulation, begin CPR.
Elevate the burned body part or
parts. Raise area above heart level,
when possible.
Cover the area of the burn. Use a
cool, moist, sterile bandage; clean,
moist cloth or moist towels.

HANNON VS. SHANDS



Mother of teen takes the stand


Continued From Page 1A

said. "We figured he was
probably dehydrated from
the day before."
She decided to take
Nathan to work with her to
have him evaluated. She
worked at Shands Medical
Group Clinic in Live Oak
at the time. Once there,
Yvette began to take her
son's vital signs.
"That's what I did
there," she said.
His temperature was
97.0, and she wrote down
the symptoms he was expe-
riencing.
She then traveled to
Duncan Auto to pick up
Bob Pinello, her co-worker
and clinic physician. She
left Nathan in the care of
one of her co-workers.
Yvette was one of three
people working in the clin-
ic that morning, she said.
Once back at the office,
and after evaluating
Nathan, Bob Pinello came
out and told Yvette, "I
think it's something neu-
ro," she explained to ju-
rors. "I immediately got on
the phone with Nathan's
neurologist because
'neuro' threw up a red flag
for me. It was a precaution
on my part, just in case."
Bob told Yvette that he
was going to send Nathan
to Shands at Live Oak for a
CT scan, Yvette said. She
then contacted her husband
Rick who came and trans-
ported Nathan to the hospi-
tal. At the hospital the plan
was to have Nathan's CT
scan evaluated by Dr. Bob
Spindell.
The scan was completed
and once Spindell and
Pinello discussed the CT
charts, they said there was
some fluid present in
Nathan's film, "but we are
not head doctors, we have
no old reports to compare
them to, he needs to see a


neurologist."
Yvette told Spindell that
she had already made an
appointment for 3:30 p.m.
with Nathan's neurologist
in Gainesville. "Bob said
good, you need to take the
CT charts with you,"
Yvette explained.
The family made a plan.
Rick took Nathan home,
and Yvette traveled to pick
up a copy of the CT scan
and reports from the hospi-
tal, and picked up her
youngest son Ricky from
school. Once home, the en-
tire family loaded into their
van, stopped for gas, and
water for Nathan, and
headed to Gainesville.
Once on 1-75, Nathan
stopped breathing, and
Yvette began CPR as Rick
called 9-1-1.
"He started to gurgle a
little bit," said Yvette, sob-
bing on the stand. "The
woman with 9-1-1 told me
to turn him on his side.
Rick pulled over and they
waited for the ambulance.
Nathan was transported by
ambulance and lifeflighted
from Ellisville to Shands at
UF.
Yvette contacted friends.
When the family arrived
at the hospital, they were
escorted to a conference
room.
"This doesn't look
good," Yvette told jurors
she recalled thinking.
"This doesn't feel good,"
she told them wiping away
her tears.
The report came back
and the family was told
that Nathan's pupils were
dilated. He was on a venti-
lator and doctors had
drained 60 cc's of fluid
from his shunt.
She recalled asking doc-
tors, "What happens if his
pupils don't undilate?"
They told her, "Then he's
gone."
Monday's questioning


came to a close, and recon-
vened Tuesday morning.
Word got out, and people
began showing up at the
hospital to hold a vigil,
Yvette said.
The doctors kept testing
and retesting. "I kept
telling them to run them
again," Yvette said. "Be-
cause when the girls would
come in (Nathan) would
grasp their hand," Yvette
said, "but with the guys he
wouldn't. He was still in
there. He knew the differ-
ence between a guy and
girl."
That's when the doctor
walked in and asked, "Did
anybody tell the family that
he's brain dead?" The
nurse looked at Yvette,
then back, and said, "You
just did," recalled Yvette,
breaking down on the
stand.
The family gathered
everyone into the hospital
chapel and broke the news.
They began making ar-
raignments for Nathan's
organ donation (as was his
wishes) and began funeral
arrangements.
The family waited until
Monday, Nov. 1, a day af-
ter Halloween, to take
Nathan off life support.
"We wanted to cremate
him, and keep him at
home," Yvette explained.
The family had a viewing
and memorial service that
Thursday, and students,
community leaders and
others came in droves to
pay Nathan final respects.
After the service, Yvette
accompanied his body to
be cremated in Gainesville.
She said her final good-
byes to him once there. She
created a memorial book
with letters from everyone
to remember Nathan by.
She said she wouldn't
wish her loss on her worst
enemy, and called it an un-
bearable pain. She thinks


about Nathan every day,
and has had to go on living
with even the smallest
things serving as reminders
of him.
"It just hurts. Hurts so
bad," she said.
She has gone on for her
son Ricky and her husband,
she said, but contemplated
suicide and still takes anti-
depressants with good days
and bad days.
"His bedroom is the
same as he left it," with a
few extra storage boxes,
she said.
Defense Attorney
Jopling began his question-
ing.
He asked Yvette Hannon
about her use of medica-
tion, questioning whether
she has been on medication
the entire 10 years since
her son's death.
She explained that there
was a period were she tried
to stop taking the medicine,
but experienced crying fits
and severe mood swings.
He countered that her
emotional state at her depo-
sition, roughly two years
after her son's passing, was
not as severe as it was in
the courtroom Monday.
She said she recalled
having to take breaks dur-
ing deposition and a point
at which someone had to
calm her down by rubbing
her back.
Jopling asked whether at
any time in Nathan's life
Yvette recalled doctors
telling her that a shunt mal-


function was life-threaten-
ing.
"I don't recall anyone
saying that it was life-
threatening 20 years ago,"
she said.
He asked, "So no one
ever told you that a shunt
malfunction could be fa-
tal?"
She said after having his
shunt replaced several
times in his life, that
Nathan began calling
headaches possibly associ-
ated with his shunt mal-
function "those type of
headaches, or one of those
headaches."
Jopling asked about
whether Nathan was sup-
posed to be seen regularly
by a neurologist to have his
shunt checked.
Yvette Hannon said that
after the surgery at age nine
that she was told that he
would not need to return
until age 15, to have his
shunt lengthened to accom-
modate his growth spurt.
A trip to Colorado in
mid-1999, where Nathan
began experiencing
headaches and was seen by
a neurologist came into
question.
Yvette said, the instruc-
tion she received was to
"have Nathan seen in the
clinic when he returns to
Florida."
Jopling argued as to
whether she translated clin-
ic as a medical clinic or as
a neurologist.
She repeated, "He is to

be seen in the clinic." And
that her conversation with
Pinello once Nathan re-
turned was informal, "off
the record," and occurred
during a visit to have
Nathan's finger checked at
the clinic.
She said Pinello never
said Nathan needed to be
seen by his neurologist
once he was back in Flori-
da. She said it was her un-
derstanding that the "off the
record" visit fulfilled the
instruction for Nathan to be
seen at the clinic. And at
that time Nathan said he
had been feeling fine since
the Colorado trip.
"The doctors there attrib-
uted it to the elevation,"
Yvette said.
Yvette Hannon said that
on the morning of Oct. 29
she took Nathan to the clin-
ic to "help him feel better
for vomiting, nausea,
headaches and signs of de-
hydration."
She explained she had
checked Nathan's shunt
valve and it was reinflating
properly, and that the shunt
never came into the conver-
sation that morning with
Pinello.
"You never asked Bob
Pinello to do this as a fa-
vor?" Jopling asked.
Yvette responded, "No, I
did not. I trusted Bob to
look at him at the clinic for
what we thought was dehy-
dration. It's where I took
Nathan for the majority of
his appointments."
She said she never wor-
ried about the costs of
Nathan being seen, because
their co-pay was only $12.
"There was no worry
over money," she said.
She said that morning,
after speaking with Bob
Pinello and Bob Spindell,
that her plan was to have an
appointment set up with a
neurologist just in case, be-
cause she understood how
difficult it was to get in to
see a neurologist, and so
she made the call.

trial over the death of
Nathan Hannon is expected

Volunteer your time


and visit Disney for free


Help out at CCS and get a

complimentary pass to theme park


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

Pack your bags and en-
joy a Disney theme park
for free. That is, after
you commit at least eight
hours of volunteer ser-
vice at a Disney ap-
proved agency, such as
Comprehensive Commu-
nity Services of Live
Oak and Jasper.
CCS was approved by
Disney to let folks volun-
teer their time with the
agency. Upon completion
of their service, each vol-
unteer, up to eight per
household, will receive a
free pass to one of Dis-
ney's theme parks, as
part of Disney's Give A
Day ... Get A Day pro-
gram.
"We're very excited
about being named as a
Disney volunteer agency
this year," said CCS pro-
gram director Debbie
Lee. "It's very easy for
people to sign up for this


program. They just have
to log onto the Disney
site by typing in the ex-
act program address
http://disneyparks.dis-
ney.go.com. Once
they've done that, they
just need to follow the
Give A Day...Get A Day
links and it will walk you
through the steps neces-
sary to register for your
volunteer service."
Disney hopes to have
one million volunteers by
the end of the program.
Lee said eight people
have so far committed to
volunteering time with
CCS. Several more have
expressed interest.
Pamela Cason will
volunteer and receive a
free pass by helping at
CCS's annual Lawn-
mower Race March 13 at
the Spirit of Suwannee
Music Park.
"This is an opportunity
not only to show my sup-
port of CCS, but to re-
ceive a great reward

"My family and I have
been to Disney several
times, but this will be the
first with a group of fel-
low volunteers."
Local resident Tereasa
Whitmore said it's a
great idea.
"I think that's nice be-
cause that will get more
people involved and (the
people) at CCS love be-

said.
People who volunteer
and receive a pass will
have one year in which

Adam Prins will seek District 4 City Council seat


Continued From Page 1A

One example he noted
was increased utility bills.
"I believe Live Oak is an
outstanding place to raise a
family as I was brought up
here," he said. "I have al-
ways loved its small town
appeal. However, last year
when our utility fees sky-
rocketed and trash service
was cut in half it became a
little less appealing."
He said he wants to
know where the money is
going.
"I want answers," he
said.
He said he believes one
way for the city to grow is
to look at utility fees for
businesses.
"I want to know why lo-
cal businesses are being
charged outrageous fees
for water and trash ser-
vice," said Prins. "I think
the city's going to be much
improved by making fees
more proportionate. The
cost of doing business in
the city is an impediment
to growth."
He said city affairs need


to be addressed in a way
that offers the best benefit
to the taxpayers.
"If other monies are be-
ing mismanaged then that
needs to be looked at," he
said. "OMI is a great start-
ing point. It seems a review
of what it cost the city in
years prior to and after
OMI was allowed to as-
sume control of the city
utilities, should spell out
the answer."

Prins said he doesn't
"make empty promises
about things I cannot con-
trol. What I will do is
promise you the following:

"I will make time to lis-
ten to your concerns."
"I will use the office
that I am seeking to im-
prove our district and the
city of Live Oak."
"I will vote according
to the best interests of the
people."
"I will seek ways to en-


hance your safety through a
solid relationship with our
police, fire and rescue per-
sonnel, ensuring they have
the equipment necessary to
provide those public ser-
vices effectively."
"I will ensure that city
funds are used responsi-
bly."
"I will ask the hard
questions and work even
harder as I earn your trust."

Prins is a lifelong resi-
dent of Live Oak, born in
1976. He was an Eagle
Scout in 1992, senior class
president at Suwannee
High School in 1994 and a
2000 graduate of Lake City
Community College with
an associate of arts degree.
He is a United States Army
veteran, having served in
Operation Iraqi Freedom
and is a correctional deputy
with the Suwannee County
Sheriff's Office. He and
wife Wendy have five chil-
dren.


No decision yet on OMI renewal


Continued From Page 1A

to negotiate with the com-
pany, then seek bids should
talks fail. The two sides
met in January and it had
appeared the matter might
be put to a vote Tuesday.
The next session is set for
Feb. 18.
Council President Mark
Stewart began Tuesday's
discussion of OMI with a
recommendation that the
city continue outsourcing
public works operations.
Councilman Ed Rewis
made the motion and
David Burch followed
with a second.
That's as far as it went,
however.
City attorney Ery Sell-
ers explained the motion
was unnecessary because a


decision to outsource had
already been made with
December's vote to either
renew with OMI or seek
competitive bids.
"There's no point in vot-
ing again to bid it out for
outsourcing because you
already voted to do that,"
Sellers told the council.
When it appeared the
motion might come to a
vote anyway, Councilman
John Hale wondered
whether the move was
meant to prevent the city
from ever reassuming con-
trol of public works.
"It's my impression that
this work will only be per-
formed by an outside
source," said John Hale.
"That's what's being allud-
ed to."
Councilman Bennie
Thomas shared Hale's con-
cern.
"Suppose we want to
take it back ourselves and
save some money," he
said.
Stewart said he wanted
to bring "finality" to the
question of outsourcing.
Sellers explained that a
vote for perpetual out-
sourcing would not be
legally binding, as current
council members have no
power over how future
members vote.
"I think the motion was
pretty clear," Stewart said
Wednesday when asked to
elaborate. "I was trying to
put it to rest to decide
whether we're going to
continue outsourcing
(public works) or keep it in
house."
Rewis and Burch with-
drew their motion and sec-
ond, respectively.
The city and OMI will
sit down in a workshop
next Thursday, Feb. 18 at
4:30 p.m. at City Hall, to
continue negotiations.

Cyber safety presentation for parents


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



Pastor Ray Kelley


traveling to Haiti

Pastor Ray Kelley of Live Oak Christian Church will
be traveling to Gonaives, Haiti Monday for a short visit
with Melio Jean, the pastor of Sonlight Christian Mission.
Melio is a former student of both Kelley and his wife
Shirley when they were on staff on Winston-Salem Bible
College in Winston-Salem, N.C. After Melio's graduation
in 1999, the Kelleys began serving as his Forwarding
Agents. Their responsibility is to help raise money to
support the mission. Funds are received from over two
dozen congregations and individuals in five states.
The purpose of this trip is to review the need of the
mission produced by the earthquake in Port-au-Prince.
Although Gonaives is about 100
miles to the north, it is still
c \periencing a large
Sill ux of people leaving
SIlic devastation in Port-
.ill-Prince.
"We want to be sure
Ilil.t we use the funds
S .iat people are sending
in a wise manner and
Il. t we provide adequate
support for the needs,"
S KelIley said.
i Because of the
turmoil in the
south, Kelley will
be entering Haiti at
the northern city of
Cap Haitian. He
will be returning

bay area that was raised to
the original level is beauti-
ful. When this phase is
complete, I plan to have an
open house. The next step
is the painting. I was asked
a while back if the building
was originally red brick
and if so could it be re-
stored to that look. I had
never seen a picture of it as
being anything other than
white but I did ask Sam
Carter, our architect. He
told me that it was built us-
ing a white sand brick and
has always been white. I
look forward to continuing
the restoration in the com-
ing years. I'm anxious to
get this historic building
returned to its original
majesty.
The sewer rehab pro-
gram continues. Hopefully
before the money runs out
and the program ends,
most of the core city,
which is some of the oldest
part of the system, will be
cleaned, videoed and re-
habbed. I have tried to im-
press on you how impor-
tant this project is to the
city. The underground sew-
er system is falling apart to
the point of being danger-
ous. Several instances have
been found where nothing
was holding up the street
but lime rock base and as-
phalt. We have been lucky
not to have more cave-ins
than has happened. I appre-
ciate the patience of every-
one with all the disruptions
in traffic. I especially thank
the businesses that have
been impacted with the
construction. We tried to
lessen the disruptions as
much as possible. Every-
one has been real
"champs" through all of
this.
Punxsutawney Phil has
predicted another six
weeks of cold weather. Un-
til recently, I didn't realize
how many different ani-
mals we rely on to prog-
nosticate the weather. I
would guess there are al-
most as many as used to
predict the outcome of the
Super Bowl. From the cold
weather we have had this


week, my confidence in
Phil as a credible weather
hog has increased. Writing
of cold weather, I have had
many comments from gas
customers expressing their
appreciation to the Council
and me for the gas rebate
program. It makes me feel
good to know that the city
was able to give our gas
customers some relief dur-
ing these hard economic
times. We'll do it again
next month.
I remind you that Valen-
tine Day is February 14
and yes even warn you not
to forget. Forgetting could
be as bad on your health as
heart problems I wrote
about earlier. It's a good
thing that we have a day to
express our love, affection
and appreciation to those
around us. Each year I give
out Valentines to the staff,
even the men. I have had
some raise an eyebrow
about this practice. I am
fond of and appreciate
them just like I do the
ladies. This year everyone
is getting Hannah Montana
valentines and a piece of
candy. Last year I think I
gave Spider Man valen-
tines. I hope everyone has
a special Valentine day. If
you travel to enjoy a meal,
please wear your seatbelt.
Encourage your loved one
to do the same. What better
way to show your affection
than to do something that
could save their life. By the
way, the Police Depart-
ment is aggressively en-
forcing speed limits. Slow
down and watch your
speed. Also, the city is not
closed for President's Day.
Garbage collection as usu-
al.
We have been reim-
bursed for the glass table-
top that was broken during
Congressman Boyd's town
hall meeting several
months ago. I received par-
tial payment from a citizen
involved. I sent a bill to
Congressman Boyd. Lo
and behold, I received a
check for the remainder.
Thanks Congressman
Boyd.

SPORTS
COMMENTARY


Black


History


Month

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
As a
sportswriter,
Black History /
month allows
you to write
some amazing
stories. When looking
at a white athlete like a
Rocky Bleier or a Jim
Abbott their stories are
heroic based on the
physical obstacles they
overcame. But what do
you say about someone
whose only obstacle
was the color of his
skin?
Roy Campanella, a
three time MVP and
Hall Of Famer, was one
of the first black
players in the Major
Leagues. Roy wanted to
be the first. When told
what he already knew,
no blacks allowed,
Campy who was half
white, would say only
his white part would
play. Later Amos Otis,
a great player the Mets
let get away, played in
Kansas City. Otis was a
very light skinned
black. After a
successful road trip
where he received a
great deal of press he
returned home to an
eviction notice. His
landlord didn't know
the ball player was
black when he rented to
him, but the player's
notoriety did him in.
Most of us can have
no idea what it was like
to be told to go to the
back of the bus. Lower
our eyes when talking
to someone or not being
allowed to use that
bathroom. Sports is
what made many
people keenly aware of
what was going on with
real people.
It is rather evident
the bus, talking and the
bathroom thing were
not going to make it in
the sports arena. Team
being the optimum
word.
When the Hank
Aarons and Richie
Allens of the world
came up segregation
was alive and well.
Billy Bruton served as
Aaron's mentor and did
what was expected, not
drawing attention to
themselves or their
great skills. When
Richie Allen wanted to
leave AAA Arkansas
his Mama wouldn't let
him come back home
till he finished the
season. It was separate
but it wasn't equal.
When researching the
first black baseball
players there was a
remarkable difference
in the personalities, yet
sameness in purpose,
they opened many
doors. Jackie Robinson
was nothing like Mr.
Cub, Ernie Banks, and
likewise Larry Doby,
Elston Howard and
Monte Irvin helped


blacks, but each in his
unique way. Because of
them, nowadays most
of us root for the color
of the uniform, not the
color of the man inside.

Junior Kristiana Evans led the
'Dogs in points with 16, and took
in eight rebounds.
For the seniors it was a hard
fought game that they can be proud
of.
"We challenged our seniors at the
beginning of the season, 'what will


be your legacy, how do you want to
be remembered' and they have re-
sponded to the challenge which in
turn caused our underclassmen to
really step up."
Suwannee was down seven
points with just under four minutes
left in the game. The Bulldogs
made seven out of eight free throws
and several key plays to win the
game.
Junior Tatiyana Thomas had 14


points, four assists; junior Hope
Chambers: eight points, eight re-

LEARN TO SPEAK WELL


THERE ARE CONSIDERABLE BENEFITS TO
BEING ABLE TO SPEAK W AELL. PEOPLE WHO
CAN PRESENT THEIR IDEAS CLEARLY,
PERSUASIVELY, AND WITH CONFIDENCE
WILL USUALLY BE MORE SUCCESSFUL THAN
THOSE WHO CANNOT. THIS STARTS WITH
FUNDAMENTALS LIKE GOOD GRAMMAR
AND A DECENT EDUCATION SO THAT YOU
WILL HAVE SOMETHING WORTH SAYING
AND BE ABLE TO SAY IT PROPERLY, BUT
THEN ONE MUST WORK ON PUTTING ONE'S
THOUGHTS INTO A CONCISE AND
PERSUASIVE FORM. THIS ISN'T EASY, NOR IS
IT SOMETHING ONE CAN JUST DECIDE TO
DO. ONE HAS TO WORK AT IT. STUDENTS
CAN JOIN DEBATE CLUBS AND TAKE PUBLIC
SPEAKING CLASSES. ADULTS CAN JOIN
TOASTMASTERS GROUPS OR GET INVOLVED
WITH CHURCH OR CIVIC GROUPS THAT REQUIRE SOME FORM OF PUBLIC
SPEAKING. AND THERE ARE TWO OTHER THINGS THAT ONE NEEDS IN ORDER
TO BE A PROFICIENT SPEAKER: A ROBUST SELF-CONFIDENCE AND A POSITIVE
MESSAGE. SELF-CONFIDENCE CAN ONLY COME WITH PRACTICE AND AN ON-
GOING POSITIVE INTERNAL DIALOGUE. YOU MUST CONTINUOUSLY WORK ON
YOUR SKILLS SO THAT YOUR SELF-CONFIDENCE IS REAL AND NOT ILLUSORY,
AND YOU HAVE TO CONTINUALLY ENCOURAGE YOURSELF. BUT, YOU ALSO
NEED TO HAVE A POSITIVE MESSAGE. IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE GOD'S
MOUTHPIECE, YOU'D BETTER BE SURE YOU ARE SPEAKING GOD'S MESSAGE,
AND THAT REQUIRES KNOWING GOD'S WORD AND LIVING A HOLY LIFE.

RELIGION


The obvious truth


Heart

Matters
By Angie Land


A part of our heritage in
Florida is the hunting of
arrowheads, and one thing
that even novice arrow-
head hunters have in com-
mon is the recognition of
intentional, intelligent de-
sign. In fact, no one would
ever pick up an arrowhead
and assume that the forces
of nature accidentally
shaped a rock into a pur-
poseful design. It would
be obvious that an Indian
ancestor intentionally
shaped and formed the ar-
rowhead for a specific
function, and even though
we were not present for
it's creation, we would
recognize that it was creat-
ed. Yet, those who pro-
claim Darwin's theory of
evolution do no less than
see the evidence of intelli-
gent design around us and
conclude that it just
"evolved" from nothing.
In his book The Origin
of Species written in 1859,
Darwin himself admitted
that the fossil record of his
time gave insignificant
proof to support his theo-
ry, and hoped that future
findings would increase
the evidence. Nearly 150
years later, the fossil


record has overwhelming-
ly increased and yet there
is still no evidence of evo-
lution from species to
species. If Darwin's theo-
ry were true, where is this
vast body of evidence that
should exist? Darwin also
stated, "If it could be
demonstrated that any
complex organ exists
which could not have been
formed by numerous, suc-
cessive, slight modifica-
tions, then my theory
would absolutely break
down."
In the past 50 years, the
field of molecular biology
has exploded with infor-
mation about the complex-
ity of DNA and living
cells information that
Darwin did not have. It
has been proven that a cell
is irreduciblyy complex".
In other words, every
component is necessary
for the cell to function
normally, and that it could
not possibly be the result
of a series of successive,
slight modifications. Any
modification would render
the cell insufficient, ab-
solutely breaking down
Darwin's theory, by his
own criteria.
To say that the account
of creation in Genesis is
not supported by fact is
simply not true. The evi-
dence of intelligent design
is all around us: the rising
and setting of the sun, the
phases of the moon and
the seasons of the year.
How indeed did these pre-
cisely organized rotations
just happen? According to
Psalm 19:1,
"The heavens declare
the glory of God, the skies


proclaim the work of his
hands. Day after day they
pour forth speech; night
after night they display
knowledge."
It is obvious that a Cre-
ator placed the stars in the
sky, as well as designed
the human body, all with a
specific purpose in mind.
It takes much more faith
to believe that this is all
the result of years of ran-
dom modifications than
the intelligent design of a
Creator. When there is an
attempt to explain creation
without the need for a
Creator, is not the motive
to diminish faith in the
Creator? Is it not also an
effort to diminish the val-
ue of human life, by
teaching that it is a ran-
dom result? Our country
deceives our young people
when Darwin's theory is
presented as fact and they
are asked to deny what is
obvious. As Americans,
our heritage is a country
established on our faith in
God, and the freedom to
worship Him. In fact, our
founding fathers used the
Bible as a reading text-
book to educate their chil-
dren. This means that the
earliest generation of
American's first reading
assignment was Genesis
1:1 "In the beginning,
God created the heavens
and the earth."
Nothing like settling
first things first. How well
we would do to remem-
ber!

Matters,

McAlpin Advent Christian Church


makes plans for Lent


The McAlpin Advent Christian
Church will participate in a 40
day devotional, scriptural prayer
guide called, "Seek God for the
City". From the 40 days, not
counting Sundays, beginning on
Feb. 17 through Palm Sunday
(March 28), the church members
will use the daily devotional con-
taining prayers of biblical hope to
seek the Lord's guidance during
Lent. "We have enough prayer
guides on hand to give to any visi-
tor during the Lenten season,"
said Pastor Paul A. Bertolino.
"This is so important to us and we
want to include as many as possi-


ble from our community and
Suwannee County. All children
will receive a daily devotional
corresponding with the adults so
families can learn to pray togeth-
er." The church is also planning to
begin a membership/baptism class
on Feb. 21 at 9:45 a.m. and will
be team taught by the pastor and
the Rev. Dr. David Dean. Dr.
Dean's book, Resurrection Hope,
will be used for the class and is
free to all that attend. For further
information, call the Pastor at
386-658-1048. The church is lo-
cated at 17214 89th Road in
McAlpin.

the same passion for love, life, our
family and each other. I fell in love with
you all over again.
