To dismay


of students,


recyclables


were trashed
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
"What have we been doing for the past five
months?"
That's what Suwannee High School student
Sebastian Hoffett wants to know after he and
other members of the SHS Environmental Club
learned that recyclables they labored to collect
were sent to the landfill instead.
The students started a recycling program to
deal with the large quantities of paper and plas-
tic drinking bottles being used at the school.
Club sponsor and SHS teacher Amy Hendry
said bins were set up throughout the school and
the response was great.
"We raised money to buy recycling bins and
promotional posters and got our maintenance
department to agree to pick up and drop off the
recycling," said Hendry. "It
just started to catch on."
Only later did she
learn that Suwannee
County was not recy-
cling the material.
"I called mainte-
nance to tell them they
had forgotten to pick up our
bins and I was told that they had been told that
there is no recycling in Suwannee County," she
said.
True to a degree, according to Public Works
Director Jerry Sikes.
"It's an on-again and off-again thing," said
Sikes.
Sikes said the igloos located at county refuse
collection sites are there for folks to drop off
aluminum cans, plastics and newspapers. The
newspapers, said Sikes, go straight to the land-

Kingpin gets
14-year term

A parking lot behind a lo-
cal motel was the spot
where thousands of pounds
of cocaine and millions of
dollars were stashed and
transported in hollowed out
truck batteries, federal offi-
cials say.
Alberto "Amigo" Garcia,
30, was sentenced to 14
years in prison by a federal
judge Jan. 28 for his role in
the operation. According to
Steve Cole of the United
States Attorney's Office,
police called him a "ge-
nius" for his ability to avoid
detection.
Garcia and his accom-
plice, Erasmo Lucio Jr.
would drive in separate ve-
hicles to the parking spot
behind a motel at US 129
and 1-10, according to Cole.

EXTENSION UPDATE


What you should know about


the new credit card rules


By Cathy Rogers
Family and Consumer
Sciences Agent
UF/IFAS Suwannee
County Extension

Last year at about this
time, I wrote an article
concerning upcoming
changes in the way that
credit card companies do
business. In the article I
stated that Congress had
recently voted-in some
changes to credit card
regulations. That wasn't
quite true. At that time the
Federal Reserve had set up
the new rules but Congress
had not yet voted on them.
At this writing the Credit
Card Accountability
Responsibility and
Disclosure Act of 2009 -
the Credit CARD Act has
been passed by lawmakers.
Some of those rules went
into effect last August
while many will take
effect on Feb. 22. Still
others will not be enforced
until August 22 of this
year. These regulations are
intended to protect
consumers from deceptive
practices employed by
some credit card
companies.
Besides those mentioned
in my previous article,


some of the key provisions
in the Credit CARD Act
are:
Credit card companies
will be required to send
out monthly statements at
least 21 days prior to the
due date of each payment
and the payment must be
due on the same date each
month. Due dates that fall
on weekends or holidays
will be accepted on the
next workday and the
deadline will be 5 p.m.
consistently.
Over-limit fees will be
optional for the consumer.
In other words, if you are
about to make a purchase
that would cause you to go
over your credit limit
incurring a fee, you will
be notified at that time and
given the option to make
the purchase and accept
the fee or decline the
purchase. Once you
choose not to receive
these fees, any
transactions exceeding
your credit limit will be
denied.
Your credit card
company must notify you
45 days prior to:
increasing your interest
rate; changing certain fees
that apply to your account;
or making other
significant changes to
your account. It must give
you the chance to "opt
out" of the changes by
allowing you to close the
account before the
changes are made.
Monthly statements
must now include
information about how
long it will take to pay off
the balance when the
minimum payment is
made. In accordance with
the new law, it will also
tell you how much your


monthly payments will
need to be in order to pay
the balance in 12, 24, or
36 months.
Companies will be
prohibited from issuing
credit cards to consumers
under the age of 21 unless
they have a co-signer who
is over the age of 21 or
can demonstrate an
independent means to
repay.
Finally, rate increases
and fees will be prohibited
on outstanding balances
except in these four
situations:
1) The bank disclosed,
at the time the account
was opened, that the
Annual Percentage Rate
(APR) would increase
sooner (such as a
promotional or teaser
rate).
2) The APR for a
variable-rate card changes
due to increases in a
published index that is
outside the card issuer's
control, such as the prime
rate.
3) The cardholder is not
making the required
minimum payment for 60
days or more.
4) The cardholder fails
to comply with a workout
agreement made with the
company.

Recommendations
of the Center for
Responsible Lending:

Scrutinize all credit
card offers and terms,
especially the "fine print."
Pay the highest APR
balance first.
Segregate your card
use if possible. Customers
with enough available
credit should use separate
cards for borrowing at a

promotional rate, making
purchases, and taking cash
advances. This makes it
easier to pay the most to
the card with the highest
rate.
Avoid credit cards that
include penalty rate
options.
Watch your statement
closely. If you have a card
that includes a penalty
rate, take a look at your
APR every time you get
your monthly statement to
make sure your account
has not been repriced. If it
has, try to move that
balance elsewhere. If you
cannot transfer the
balance, try to pay down
the balance as soon as
possible, and do not
charge anything further on
that card.

casual wear and formal wear. Most important, they will
display their personalities and interviewing skills while
interviewing with this year's Jacksonville judging panel.
Personality is the number one aspect that each contestant
is judged on during all phases of competition.
If either Tori or Elizabeth were to win the title of Miss
Teen Jacksonville, she would represent Jacksonville and
the surrounding communities at the Cities of America
National Competition that will take place in Orlando.
Over $60,000 in prizes and awards will be presented at
the National Competition while each winner enjoys this
expense paid trip of five nights and six days in Orlando.

Viewpoints/Opinions


MYRA C. REGAN ROBERT BRIDGES
Publisher Editor
Members of the Suwannee Democrat editorial board
are Myra C. Regan, publisher, and Robert Bridges, editor.
Our View is formed by that board.





OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat


A fair deal
With all due respect to state Sen. Charlie Dean, the
man's ties to Suwannee County are tenuous at best.
But then, a number of counties in Dean's district
could say the same thing. The former Citrus County
sheriff is simply stretched too thin or rather, Dis-
trict 3 itself is. An example of legislative gerryman-
dering at its best, District 3 begins in Citrus and
snakes its way north, taking in all or parts of Baker,
Columbia, Dixie, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lafayette,
Leon, Levy, Madison, Marion, Suwannee and Taylor
counties. As noted previously in this column, the dis-
trict resembles a large "C" shakily scrawled across
the northern half of the state. (See "Our View: Map-
making," in our online archives.)
The odds of somebody from Suwannee or a neigh-
boring county ever winning the seat? Pretty unlikely.
The bulk of the district's voters, as well as campaign
funds, are to be found in Citrus and Marion counties
alone.
Now comes the Fair Districts movement, about
which we wrote in the aforementioned column.
FairDistrictsFlorida.org proposed a simple, and we
think reasonable, solution to the plight of Suwannee
and other underrepresented Florida counties: no
more crazy-quilt districts. And maybe just maybe -
a better chance of electing a local man or woman to
represent us in the Florida Senate.
Here's the proposal, in the form of a ballot sum-
mary:
Legislative districts or districting plans may not be
drawn to favor or ,lif, ii an incumbent or political
party. Districts shall not be drawn to deny racial or
language minorities the equal opportunity to partic-
ipate in the political process and elect representa-
tives of their choice. Districts must be contiguous.
Unless otherwise required, districts must be com-
pact, as equal in population as f...,ilI.., and where
f. ,.il1.,. must make use of existing city, county and
geographical boundaries.
A twin proposal would do the same for Congres-
sional redistricting.
When we last wrote on this topic it wasn't clear
enough signatures would be gathered to get these
measures on the November ballot. We're pleased to
report that FairDistrictFlorida.org's petition drive
was successful. The Florida Supreme Court recently
certified a pair of constitutional amendments Num-
ber 5, on legislative redistricting, and Number 6, on
the Congressional side for voters' approval.
These amendments won't in themselves solve the
problem of legislative under-representation, but
they're the best shot we've had in a while.

To the Editor:


Your recent editorial, "Moment of Truth" (Jan. 28), regarding the City
of Live Oak's public works contract with CH2M HILL cites "supposed
concern for workers' rights" as the only rationale for the city not to open
the contract to public bidding. While the welfare of our local employees
and their future vesting is a very real and significant concern for both the
company and the city, it is far from the only one.
Any bid process incurs costs for advertising, staff time to review the
bids, etc. Furthermore, unlike commodities or capital projects, it can be
difficult to discern differences in professional services bids, to compare
apples to apples. Moreover, if the city ultimately does change service
providers, there are costs associated with any transition.
Finally, and perhaps most important, CH2M HILL has a proven track
record of success in Live Oak since 1997, starting with management of
the city's water and wastewater facilities then expanding eight years lat-
er to public works services that include solid waste collection and dis-
posal; city vehicle repair; and maintenance of streets, the cemetery, and
public spaces and grounds. This ongoing relationship earned the Nation-
al Council for Public Private Partnerships' Partnership Award in the ser-
vice category in 2005.
City officials have acknowledged that there are no performance issues.
Operating and contract costs are equal to or less than cities of similar size
and in neighboring jurisdictions. CH2M HILL is confident our combina-
tion of experience, expertise and pricing compares favorably to any oth-
er vendor in the market.
There are certainly valid reasons for going through a competitive bid
process. However, there also are times when such a process simply re-
sults in an unnecessary cost to taxpayers and an unnecessary risk to em-
ployee morale.

Sincerely,
Brent W Stauffer

The Democrat

responds
Note first, Mr. Stauffer, that
our comments were directed at
the Live Oak City Council, not
OMI. OMI is a private company
whose aim, presumably, is to
generate revenue and maximize
profit. The city council, on the
other hand, has different obliga-
tions.
As to the need for competitive
bidding, your comment on com-
paring "apples to apples" sums
it up nicely. Observing that
OMI's fees are "equal to or less
than cities of similar size and in
neighboring jurisdictions" hard-
ly proves we mightn't get a bet-
ter deal elsewhere. Surely there
are unique challenges to every
municipality, some of which are
"apples," others, "oranges."
As for OMI's "proven track
record of success," that is a fac-
tor to be considered when
weighing competing offers -
not an argument against com-
petitive bidding to begin with.

flooding

Local officials
keeping watch
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr
A flood warning issued
Monday by the National
Weather Service remains
in effect as another wet
weekend likely lies
ahead.
Suwannee County
Sheriff and Emergency
management Director
Tony Cameron said
Wednesday that area wa-
terways, particularly the
Santa Fe River at Three
Rivers Estates, aren't
likely to rise more than a
foot, as forecasters pre-
dict the possibility of
more rain in the coming
days.
"I don't think it will do
that much," Cameron
said. "This weekend, it at
all depends. They've only
predicted about a half an
inch to an inch or more,
if any."
Those who dwell in
flood-prone areas are
asked to remain vigilant
and to stay safe.
On Monday the water
had risen to almost 19
feet, tipping over into
flood stage. Meteorolo-
gists have predicted that
the water level could
continue to swell past 20
feet by Saturday if more
rain falls.
Road closures still re-
main for the south end of
39th Drive in Three
Rivers, as well as the
south end of River Run
Road. The possibility for
additional closures is
contingent upon the
amount of rainfall this
weekend.

The best of both worlds

Branford truly is a 'perfect setting' for Louise Marzloff


Louise, Andy & Avery. Photo: Joyce Marie Taylor, Correspondent


By Joyce Marie Taylor
Correspondent
By her own admission, Louise Marzloff
says that she is blessed with "the best of
both worlds," and after listening to her re-
count her life and her accomplishments,
one has to agree with her. With a new
granddaughter on the way and one of her
daughters in a ministry overseas, she has
much to be proud of and thankful for.
At this stage of her life, she was sup-
posed to be acting like a retired person.
She and her husband were supposed to be
traveling the world and enjoying their re-
tirement years, but Louise, who wasn't
quite ready to throw in the towel, had a
different agenda.


Born and raised in Mayo, Louise grew
up in a loving family on a tobacco and
watermelon farm, which instilled values
of home and hearth that have sustained
her throughout her life. She met and mar-
ried her husband, Andy, when the two of
them were in their twenties working to-
gether at General Electric in the city of
Alachua. Although Andy was born in
Gainesville, his family relocated to Mayo
when he was seventeen, where he gradu-
ated from Lafayette High School, and
also where he met his wife, Louise.
After five years at G.E., Louise was
laid off and so it was time to re-think her
career choices and try something differ-
ent. She wound up opening an office sup-


ply/craft store in Mayo, but after two
years she realized her heart wasn't quite
into it. Something was gnawing at her.
She knew she had a different mission in
life and after a while it would become
crystal clear what that mission was.
Meanwhile, her sister-in-law had
opened up the very first pre-school in
Mayo and Louise worked side-by-side
with her, until one day the suggestion was
made that the city of Branford was in dire
need of a pre-school, too. When the pres-
ident of the bank told her husband, Andy,
the same thing, the Marzloffs decided to
go for it in 1986. This coming August

Food for Thought

PRESTO CHANGE-O!
Magicians are known for changing one thing
into another.
1) The Philippines Several Years Ago: I read
back in the mid-90's that pornography [because
it was illegal] they would shred it and turn it into
Bibles. That is quite a change!
2) What Jesus Can Do With Us: One time a
preacher was asked if he really believed Jesus
turned water into wine. "Of course I do," replied
the preacher. "I've seen Him turn a drunkard into
a saint." Paul reminded us in II Cor. 3:18 "But we
all, with unveiled face, behold as in a mirror the
glory of the Lord, are being ti;'i'\fbiinJ into the
same image from glory to glory, just as by the
Spirit of the Lord."
3) During Paul's Day: Corinth was a city filled
with all kinds of immorality. There were thieves,
drunkards, revilers, robbers and idolaters. But
some of these were changed by Christ, Paul said
they were washed, sanctified, justified by the
power of Jesus Christ [I Cor. 6:9-11]. Then in
Paul's second letter to Corinth he said, "If anyone
is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have
passed away; behold all things are new." II Cor.
5:17

'Ax Men


features area aqua loggers


'Uncle Buck, 'Pond Bear' and others find sudden fame


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

JASPER This season of the History
Channel's "Ax Men" features two local
aqua loggers as part of a rugged new
crew who guide last season's stars
through the danger filled black water of
the Suwannee River in search of cut
timber that was lost in logging
campaigns years ago.
My father, Steve Livingston, is one of
those men.
On the first day of filming the reality
TV show, about the perils and high risks
involved in the logging business, my
mom said to my dad, "You're not even
going to shave? What about a haircut?"
Jasper native Steve "Uncle Buck"
Livingston chuckled and replied, "I'll
have to check with my producer first."
And so it began.
Four months later, I trekked across a
muddy timber yard where a few "Ax
Men," including my dad and fellow
Jasper native Patrick "Pond Bear"
Swilley, were sawing their most recent
findings into prized boards.

Third rule of logging:
Do not wear flip-flops.
"Hey now, remember, I'm the brains
of this operation," the laid back owner
of Collin's River Logging, Joe "Injun
Joe" Collins, shouts out as I approach.
"Yeah, yeah, I hear ya," scuba diver
Jessie "The Catfish" Horstman, replies.
After hours of playful bickering, the
development of the running joke "Shhh,
she'll write it down," and three logs
loaded, sawed, and later piled, the men
gather around a barrel fire of scrap
wood to discuss their newfound fame.
"It's awesome," Patrick said of his
newest, if temporary, career-TV
personality.
"Yeah, he's a regular Fresh Prince of
Jasper," Joe said jubilantly.

Second rule
of logging:
Bring your sense of humor.
"See, you should've worn some of
those multi-colored toe socks with your
flip flops," Joe said to me. "I used to
come walking' in the bar where my band
played with flip flops and 10 different
colored toes."
The filming on the Suwannee lasted
for more than six weeks. The camera
crew stayed at local hotels and rode out
to the job site each day, said Steve. For
Steve, getting to know the camera crew
and being "behind the scenes" of a
television show was the best part of
filming.
The camera crew followed last
season's foul-mouthed stars Jimmy and
James Smith as they traveled from
Washington to White Springs, and
teamed up with Collins River Logging
to recover century-old, but perfectly
preserved timber.
Things quickly turned into a West

"Ax Men" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on the History Channel


versus South dynamic.
"We called them the west-coast
Yankees," joked Steve. "We were out to
show them what real aqua logging is
about."
Joe added: "It only took us a few
hours to melt them down and pour
them into the river." He cited last
Sunday's episode where James is shown
falling off the logging boat into the
Suwannee, ruining his cell phone as
well as his pride.
Next, the conversation changes to the
origination of their rather unique
nicknames used on the show.
"Steve's nickname comes from the
movie 'Uncle Buck' where John Candy
comes to baby-sit and leads the kids
astray," said Joe. "That's Steve; he's our
mischievous Uncle Buck."
During Steve's first appearance on
"Ax Men" he's shown sinking the
logging boat as a practical joke. "That
was too much," he says with a smile
after sending Jimmy and James running
for higher ground.
As for Patrick, it's easy for anyone
who knows him to figure out how he
got the nickname of "Pond Bear," said
the short, stocky and outspoken and
let's not forget hairy scuba diver.
"Once, he came up from diving and
had lily pads stuck to his back," said
Joe. "We just called him the Pond Bear
from then on."
Patrick steals the show later in the

season, but we'll have to wait and find
out how.
"The Hollywood comes out of our
man," joked Steve.
Patrick also wears a few new scars
from the shows filming, reminders of
the dangers involved in Suwannee
River logging.
First rule of logging:
Safety.
One thing the show does not over-
dramatize is the danger involved with
logging in the Suwannee.
"There are all kinds of interesting
things to run into," said Joe.
Disorienting dark water, gators, and
rocks are just a few examples of
hazards. "It scares the hell out of some
people."


"Whenever something rubs against
my leg in the Suwannee, I just tell
myself, 'It was just a mudfish, it was
just a mudfish,'" said Patrick. "I came
up on a manikin once. You can just
imagine."
Although all the men agreed being
"full-time Hollywood" would be great,
they said stardom is not what interests
them. They hope to use their transient
fame to better inform the public about
aqua logging and recovered wood. "It
has a positive impact on the
environment because it has the least
impact," said Steve.
"Every log we pull out of the river is a
tree that doesn't get cut," Joe added.
"But if nothing else, we got our 15
minutes of fame."

Blood ties


Continued From Page 1A

Messcher pair, who are
both students at Suwannee
Middle School, have em-
barked on individual ser-
vice projects to show just
how set for adulthood they
truly are.
Zac, a hemophiliac, has
pledged to raise $500 to-
ward hemophilia research
aiming to "help find a
cure" for the illness that
has plagued him his entire
life, he said. In hemophili-
acs, blood doesn't clot
properly, meaning even a
small cut or minor injury
can prove serious.
Becky, inspired by her
brother's plight and seek-
ing to make a difference on
her own, has vowed to ral-
ly everyone she can to do-
nate a total of 500 pints of
blood to help her brother
and others with blood dis-
orders.
The siblings began each
of their service projects at
the start of the new year,
hoping to meet their goals
by the time of their B'nai
Mitzvah the traditional
Jewish coming of age cer-
emony.
For Jewish boys like
Zac, 13 is the age at which
one becomes a man by
vowing to observe the
commandments and help-
ing lead religious services,
as outlined on the Web site
www.jewfaq.org. In addi-
tion, he may now be count-
ed in a minyan (the mini-
mum number of people
needed to perform certain
elements of religious ser-
vices), form binding con-
tracts, testify before reli-
gious courts and marry,
confirmed Rabbi Moshe
M. Elbaz, of Temple Israel
in Valdosta where the
Messchers attend services.


It's the celebrant's first
aliyah, or public recital of
the Five Books of Moses,
from the Torah.
"During Shabbat ser-
vices on a Saturday shortly
after the child's 13th birth-
day, or even the Monday
or Thursday weekday ser-
vices immediately after the
child's 13th birthday, the
celebrant is called up to the
Torah to recite a blessing
over the weekly reading,"
according to the Web site,
and is often required to
learn the entire haftarah, a
selection from the
prophets, Elbaz said.
For Jewish girls, age 12
marks that transition. In
Orthodox and Hasidic
practice, women are not
permitted to participate in
religious services in this
fashion, so a Bat Mitzvah
(a "daughter of the com-
mandments" ceremony),
if celebrated at all, is usu-
ally little more than a par-
ty. However, in other
forms of Judaism, the
girls do exactly the same
thing as the boys, Elbaz
noted.
"Boys and girls learn re-
ligious school training
from age 8, five years pri-
or to their Bar Mitzvah,
and study the Hebrew lan-
guage a year prior to their
ceremony," he said.
Both Zac and Becky
have been working hard to
learn the Hebrew text each
will recite.
"I'm ready," said Zac,
smiling, "but I'm not sure
about Becky."
"I'm not as good at
speaking Hebrew as him,"
Becky conceded.
Despite the challenges,
both Zac and Becky have
stayed focused on working
to complete their projects.
"They decided around


Thanksgiving to conceive
their projects," said the
pair's mother, Janet Mess-
cher. "They both wrote
scripts and made videos,
which they have posted on
YouTube under mitzvot-
project to get the word
out," Janet Messcher said.
Becky made posters, fly-
ers and participation
coupons, voiced a radio
announcement on Power
Country 102 several weeks
ago, and has even made
three trips to join workers
on the local Life South
blood mobile in Live Oak.
She's now hoping to do the
same in Valdosta. As of
Tuesday, she had collected
over 150 pints toward her
project 54 from kids at
SMS alone.
Zac, who has to take
medication three time
weekly by injection to con-
trol blood clotting and co-
agulation from broken
blood vessels in his ankles,
said his project is coming
along well, but "could use
a few more donations."
As of Wednesday, he
had raised $353 toward the
foundation Hemophilia of
Georgia, which will help
in part with research in
Florida.
"People can keep donat-
ing even after we reach
$500 to help find a cure for
hemophilia," Zac said.
Janet Messcher said she
is delighted by Zac and
Becky's hard work and
grateful to all who have
helped.
"I'm immensely proud
and amazed at how much
work they have accom-
plished," she said. "The
amount of help and feed-
back we've gotten from
friends, family and the
community has been in-
credible."

and other issues on the Web
site."
Daniels said he wants to
make sure the people of the
community know he will
be there anytime a question
needed answering. If he
doesn't know the answer,
he will find it, he said.
"People who don't know
me will find that I'm
frankly honest in a political
way," said Daniels.
Daniels said voters
should make a smart, in-
formed decision on who to
vote into city offices in
May.
"It's a very important
election and the people will
decide which way the city
will go," said Daniels.

The know-how
"I will use my knowl-
edge to assist you with is-


sues of concern or inter-
est."
Daniels' experience is
varied:
Graduated with an as-
sociate of arts in business
administration and a bache-
lor of science in business
education, along with mi-
nors in accounting and eco-
nomics, from Monmouth
University in 1973.
Elected township com-
mitteeman, Barnegat Twp.,
N.J. 1976. Current popula-
tion 20,000-plus.
Served as police com-
missioner and deputy may-
or and oversaw building
and code enforcement.
Helped prepare multi-
million dollar school board
and municipal budgets.
Served as assistant
chief inspector for Fellows,
Reade, and Weber Engi-
neering 1977-78 before re-


locating to Suwannee
County.
Served county residents
as owner of Sports Connec-
tion, Delayna's Laundro-
mat and various rental
properties.
Finalist for Suwannee
County Coordinator.
Finalist for city of Live
Oak's Public Works Direc-

Daniels has regularly
broadcast sporting events
on WQHL and WLVO for
the past 21 years and is ac-
tive in most school and
recreational athletics
throughout the county. He
also writes the Sportabout
column for the Suwannee
Democrat.

"I look forward to serv-
ing the people of Live
Oak," Daniels added.


Bennett announces bid

for county commission


Continued From Page 1A

"It's the big issue, it's
going to be my main fo-
cus," she said.
Attracting businesses to
the county will be the
biggest step in creating
more jobs here, she said.
"That's why I'm very in-
terested in this Catalyst
site," Bennett said. "I think
it could be a big boom to
the county."
The site she refers to is a
100-acre site west of Live
Oak that, when construct-
ed, would be a site that is
infrastructure ready for
new businesses to locate.
"I think it's very, very
important, just the fact that
I have a 19-year-old son, I
don't want him to have to
move away to get a job. I
want him to be able to raise
kids here."
She said what the county
has to do next is put to rest
the wet/dry issue.
"This is not a dry county,
we sell beer and wine
here," said Bennett. "I am
in favor of it (the county
going wet). The revenue
we're losing from not be-
ing wet is ridiculous."


Other pledges:

Bennett wants to be in-
volved in the community

"My pledge is to be to-
tally accessible to every-
body in my district," she
said. "They will know all
my phone numbers and
where I live. If I can help
someone or just find some-
body that can help them I
want to be able to. I want
the people in my district to
tell me what they feel."

County departments

"I want to be able to
spend time going to all
county departments, what
can we as commissioners
do to help," she said. "I
want to find out what, if
any, their concerns are. I
want them to be totally
comfortable talking with
me."

Communication

"If I were elected I
would make it a point to
communicate with my fel-
low commissioners. I


would want those in the
public to come to the meet-
ings and to not feel intimi-
dated. I think that's a big
thing. The communities
need to be very aware of
what's coming to them."

Research

"If I don't know some-
thing or understand it I will
take the time to do research
on the matter. I love to do
research."

Perimeter Road

"I understand keeping
big traffic from downtown,
but at the same time I don't
want the perimeter road to
take away from downtown.
I believe it's something we
need though."
Forty-four year old Ben-
nett is originally from
Massachusetts. She and her
husband Daniel are owners
of Bennett's Glass Compa-
ny in Live Oak. They have
a 19-year-old son, Harvey.
She has experience in
bookkeeping, payroll, ac-
counting, contracts and
management.

cio would pick up the hollowed out truck
batteries filled with cocaine from truck
drivers.
"You can fit between five and six kilo-
grams of cocaine in a hollowed out truck
battery," said Cole.
Then Garcia or Lucio would take one or
two of the batteries and immediately drive
them to customers in Jacksonville or Or-
ange Park.
"They would then take the money re-
ceived, less Garcia and Lucio's cut, and
put the money in the truck battery and take
it back to the truck drivers," said Cole.
From there the truck drivers would take
the money back to Mexico or Texas.
Garcia and Lucio made this run periodi-


cally between at least 2007, according to
court testimony, and Garcia's arrest in
June 2009, a day after selling drugs to a
confidential informant. Garcia pleaded
guilty to distributing about 600 pounds of
cocaine. Lucio will be sentenced on Feb.
25.
Sheriff Tony Cameron said he's glad the
drugs are off the streets.
"No matter where they are going, I'm
just glad it's been stopped," he said.
"They were taking away from our fami-
lies all over, it's a crime that ruins so
many lives."
Three others were also sentenced for
their roles. Umar "Old Man" Hassan, 60,
was sentenced to five years in prison and
Kenneth "Big Boy" Johnson, 36, was sen-
tenced to two years.

WELLBORN NEWS


Part of the pa
By Tim Williams
One of the things I love about living in a smaller
farming community is the way everything relates and
fits together with only a small degree of separation.
We have all heard the phrase "six degrees of separa-
tion" used to describe the connectivity we have to each
other especially to the folks we do not know or have
not met.
Well, I have certainly found this to be true in the
past, but since moving to Wellborn in 2004, it seems to
be true to a greater extent. It's as if the world used to
fit in my hand, but now it fits between two fingers.
Another thing I love about living in Wellborn is how
our neighbors are not just neighbors, but true friends. I
have found that in Wellborn, past and present, folks
just naturally work together and help each other. I am
reminded of an example of these two concepts every
day as I drive in and out of my driveway. As I come
and go, I pass a large rusting machine a feat of agri-
cultural engineering in its day and a testament to
agriculture's ability to adapt and thrive.
In 2005, I purchased the property between my house
and CR 137 in order to prevent a certain type of devel-
opment that I felt would not add to the value of our
neighborhood. There were some older structures on the
new property that were overgrown and unused. Soon
after my purchase, we experienced several hurricanes
passing through and one of the structures, an old stor-
age barn gave up the ghost and fell in. When the barn
finally succumbed to the years of neglect, wind and
rain, it offered a clearer glimpse of its former use and
what might be inside. We also lost some trees a few
weeks later that shaded the barn and the combination
of these calamities offered an uncovered glimpse into
the assortment of antiques and oddities stored in the
barn for all those years.
As we explored the barn, we found it contained a
large-wheeled frame supporting some type of combine
with several work stations and a large frame platform
for a part of the machine that was removed many years
before, based on the rust and debris on top.
About this same time later in the spring, one of my
neighbors, Phillip Foster, who owns Sunsations Lawn
and Landscape, was able to shed some light on the ori-
gin of the combine. Philip told me that the Owens
family used to own or farm my property and that his
grandfather, J. W. Foster, partnered with another neigh-
bor to buy and use the combine. Together, they com-
bined small grains, and he thinks even some grass seed
perhaps.
Of course time passed and we got busy with other
things but as the wood from the frame and siding of
the barn began to slowly be pulled off and stacked up
and carried off "when no one was looking" by persons
unknown, the combine saw more and more daylight
and spent more time on my mind. When I finally
cleaned out the area where the barn was, to save the
last of the barn wood for myself, I moved the machine
(with a lot of help from my neighbors) to my yard up
near the house where it sits today on land it once
combined. Bill Knotts, another fantastic neighbor who
is married to Connie (Hogan) Knotts, gave me more
information about the combine. His wife's father,
Mont Hogan, was the other owner of the machine. Bill
is sure it was purchased prior to 1961 as Mont Hogan
went south to the Palm Beach area to farm in 1961.
Bill also believes, as Philip Foster does, that the com-
bine was used to combine a variety of crops all here in
Wellborn. I can't help but think that the more things
change the more they stay the same as Stanley Cribbs
and his brother Rodney pull in with their cutters and
balers to clean off the old Bahia so I can plant my oats.
I have the land and grow the hay and they have the
equipment so we "crop share" on the hay operation.
While we don't own any equipment together, without
either contribution, it just wouldn't work.
Neighbors and friends still sharing equipment and
farming in Wellborn, 70 years and counting!

Live Oak is site for farming academy


University of Florida of-
ficials are nearly ready to
launch a Live Oak-based
academy aimed at helping
novice small farmers as
well as those who just want
to improve the small farm
they have.
Ninety-three percent of
Florida's 47,000 farms are
classified by the federal
government as "small." But
those farms earn less than
one-fifth of the state's agri-
cultural receipts, said Nick
Comerford, director of the
North Florida Research and
Education Center in Quin-
cy.
Around the country,
there is a similar split be-
tween small and large
farms, he said, but national-
ly, small farmers are faring
better than Florida's small
farmers.
Helping change that was
the impetus behind the In-
stitute of Food and Agricul-


tural Sciences' Small
Farms Academy, said Com-
erford, the academy's inter-
im director. Officials hope
to officially launch the
academy in April and to
have a full curriculum by
July 1.
The academy will be ini-
tially based at the North
Florida Research and Edu-
cation Center's Suwannee
Valley campus in Live Oak.
"It will be a different
kind of program ... very in-
tensive and hands-on for a
couple of days. We want
them to have good materi-
als they can take home and
make part of their library
and to just be ready to go
home and do the work," he
said.
IFAS extension officials
offered a hands-on short
course in March 2009 on
starting a hydroponic-farm-
ing business that was well
received, he said. And

Councilman Stewart said he was
all about the bottom line when he
took office. Here is the bottom
line. OMI costs the City $1,000 an
hour. This does not include gas or
parts.
$2,400,000 a year translates to
$200,000 a month. The average
month includes 20 work days of 8
hours each or 160 hours. Allowing
for 40 hours of overtime a month
that is 200 hours worked a month.
200 hours divided into $200,000
equals $1,000 an hour or $10,000 a
day this allow for 2 hours OT
every work day.
This is the equivalent of paying
40 people a day $20 an hour to
work taking out 20% for labor ex-
pense. These are your numbers
Councilman Stewart lets see how
you can Flip Flop them.

My hats off and a big hey you! to
the guy that called in and was com-
plaining about the way they grade
the roads. He hit the nail on the
head, they sure need to do some-
thing about this. Thank ya'll, have
a great day, and hopefully they will
get it right.

Thanks to the Suwannee Democ-
rat for the article on the new bio-
mass plant to be built in Hamilton
County. We're not an expert in this
field, but I have never read an arti-
cle with more pros and cons for
building such a plant. On the pro


side, it is supposed to be clean,
with little side effects, there is sup-
posed to be adequate fuel to keep
the plant running, the financial
benefits will be good, and we will
get rid of trash wood left over after
the forest is removed. On the con
side, it is reported to be dirty, and
according to experts, there isn't
enough forest waste within a 50-
mile radius to supply this plant and
some think this will remove nutri-
ents needed to regrow the forests.
They are talking about building
these plants from Gainesville to
Georgia. I sure hope the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection
knows what it is doing. Bye.

On January 25th, the Cook Po-
litical Report showed our Con-
gressional District, with our Rep-
resentative, Allen Boyd, to be
"likely" to remain a Democrat
seat, and therefore vote, after the
2010 elections in November. By
this, they mean that theseee seats
are not considered competitive at
this point but have the potential to
become engaged." This is the
case even though they also show
that our district, FL-02, voted for
the 2004 and 2008 Republican
presidential tickets 6 percentage
points more than was the average
for the whole country. Allen
Boyd's votes in Congress support
the Democrat position 95% of the
time, according to www.open-
congress.org, such as the 'porku-
lus' stimulus bill and cap-and-tax
bill, for which he voted, and

against the Stupak pro-life
amendment to the health care bill.
Mark Greenbaum of Roll Call
newspaper said on January 25th
(http://www.rollcall.com/news/42

politically afford to vote yes" on
the health care bill, even if we, his
constituents, are against it. Let's
help our Congressional seat "be-
come engaged!" Investigate what
Allen Boyd really supports.

I must agree with Mr. Hill. Why
aren't the agendas for the City

vance for citizens to review? Isn't
this the responsibility of the City

Mr. Hill, this message is to Mr.
Hill. Mr. Hill, I read your message

at drainage in the areas that flood

purchase flood insurance. Mr. Hill
I am going to try to help you NOT
get elected. Also, I live in a flood
zone and my house has never
flooded and if it does flood, that
would be for me to repair, and not
for you to make me do something

Gray began her ca-

grade teacher and holds
a bachelor's degree in
elementary education
and a master's degree
in teaching and learn-

"I believe my greatest contribution to

set high expectations for my students and
to inspire them to achieve those goals. I

NANNETTE "SAM" BUNCE
Branford High School
Eighth grade language
arts/ninth grade English

Bunce began her ca-
reer as a second grade
teacher in 1972 at
Lealman Elementary
in St. Petersburg. She
holds a bachelor's de-
gree in education from
the University of South
Florida.
"It is my hope that my greatest contribu-
tion to my students is teaching them some-
thing 'beautiful' everyday. Each day in my
classroom I endeavor to teach a word, a
phrase, or perhaps study a literary work
with that embodies a universal truth that
my students may apply to themselves. My
desire is that I will encourage my students
to continue to pass on these 'beautiful'
thoughts and truths to someone else, thus
continuing the cycle so important in the
communication process. Shared knowl-
edge endures."


LAURA KATHERINE
ROBERTS
Suwannee
Elementary School
Second and
third grade gifted


Roberts began her
career as a second
grade teacher in 2005.


She holds a bachelor of science degree in
early childhood education from Valdosta
State University and a master's in educa-
tion in emotional disturbances/learning
disabilities from Florida State University.
"My greatest contribution to the educa-
tion of my students is the strong, coopera-
tive classroom climate that I try to build
every year. From the first day of school to
the last, I try very hard to develop a cohe-
sive classroom structure where the stu-
dents feel comfortable and valued, almost
like our own 'school family.' One of my
favorite teachers/authors, Rafe Esquth, has
two rules in his classroom: be nice and
work hard. I use these two rules well.
Kindness and hard work are the founda-
tions of our classroom. My students must
always try to do their best, and above all,
they must be nice to one another! We try to
end our day each day with a compliment
circle, where students practice saying kind
words to one another. They have to know
they can trust me and that they can trust
their classmates. Social and emotional
needs are often neglected in our schools to-
day, but I feel that they must be addressed
before academic needs can even be consid-
ered. I know that if my students feel happy,
enthusiastic and comfortable, they are
more likely to be successful with academ-
ic endeavors."

Severance began her
career as an art teacher

in 2001. She holds a
bachelor's of science
degree in education
grades 1-6.
"I always have a positive attitude and I
stress the importance of education to my
students. I also take on the role as their
'second mom' and teach them that honesty
is the best policy. For example, I tell my
students that if they have always been hon-
est with me, I will believe them if they are
telling me about a big purple monster in
the hallway."

Keller began her ca-
reer as a second grade
teacher in 1978. She
holds a bachelor of arts
in education.
I believe that the
greatest contribution I
make is making chil-
dren aware that they
don't need to settle for second best. My
children know that I expect them to be 'go-
getters', not just 'satisfied customers!'
When goals are set high, more is achieved
by the students, even if the goals are not
met!"

Cameron began her
career in 1995 as a
fourth grade teacher at
Suwannee East Ele-
mentary. She holds a '
Bachelor of Arts in
liberal arts and sci- 1 7
ences from the Univer-
sity of Florida.
I want my students to feel loved and
confident, so that they can perform well in
their daily lives. Unfortunately, many stu-
dents begin my art class with a closed and
stubborn mind of fearful attitude. Many of
them think they cannot be successful in an
area in which they have not excelled in the
past. I strive to open my students' minds,
help them break old habits and barriers,
and show them that they can soar to new
heights that they never dreamed possible. I
emphasize that when trying to master any
skill. Hard work, determination, practice,
and perseverance guarantees success! The
greatest contribution I make to the educa-
tion of my students is when I see these
habits and traits evident in my classroom
- but more importantly overflowing
into other aspects of their lives."

Vickers began teach-
ing varying exception-
alities kindergarten
through 5th grade in
1979. She holds a
Bachelor of Science
degree in special edu-
cation.


"I believe my greatest contribution is be-
lieving and showing not only my students
but their families, friends, peers and com-
munity that our students are capable of
overcoming many obstacles that people do
not believe they can do. People feel that
because they are mentally handicapped
they are not capable of being independent
or responsible, much less hold down a job.
If the students are shown and expected to
behave responsibly, they will. It may take
the students longer to learn a skill or they
may need to learn it in a different style
than others, along with a lot of extra work
and patience, but they are capable of learn-
ing. If people would just look beyond their
handicaps they would see and know some
beautiful individuals."

fill. When the other containers are full, the
county tries to sell the recyclables.
"There's a very limited market for it. If
there is a market for it we will take it and
sell it," said Sikes. If not, "it goes to the
landfill."
The igloos at some county refuse sites
are labeled "aluminum cans," "clear
glass," "newspapers" and "plastic."
Hoffett said he and his fellow students
were discouraged.


"We are trying to accomplish some-
thing," he said. "But the county is just
turning that around and filling up landfills
with all of these recyclables we've collect-
ed that could be used again and not waste
other materials."
Hendry said club members are circulat-
ing a petition at school to convince the
county to commence a more comprehen-
sive recycling program. She said the peti-
tion will be presented to county commis-
sioners at a future meeting.

COMMENTARY


Before

Andra

Davis

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
Suwannee is
sure proud to
have THREE
players
currently in the /
NFL. Andra
Davis, Kelly
Jennings and Bruce Johnson.
Before them Jimmy Nelson,
Dale McCullers and Del
Williams, SHS alumni all, are
etched somewhere in pro
football's almanac.
As Black History Month
unfolds so does the story of
another Suwannee player.
Edmund Nelson lists his
birthplace as Live Oak,
Florida. Nelson was bom here
in April of 1960. His two
older brothers went on to
careers, one coaching in
Tampa for 35 years and
another retiring as a Major
out of the U.S. military.
Edmund's career was one that
went unnoticed in his
birthplace.
Nelson moved from Live
Oak as a youngster, his dad
was career military. It was our
loss as Edmund not only
played in Hillsborough
County, he starred there. He
won Tampa's Guy Toph
award given to the area's
outstanding high school
football player. He was given
a scholarship to Auburn
where he excelled and won
the Cliff Hare award as their
outstanding player. He was
also named MVP in the 1982
Blue-Gray game.
After being coached by
Chuck Noll in the Senior
Bowl, the Steeler coach chose
him in the seventh round of
the NFL draft. In those days
the draft was 12 rounds. He
was the 172nd player picked.
The first Suwannee County-
bom black NFL football
player. He had an outstanding
career for the Steelers,
starting 43 games along the
defensive line from 1982-
1987. He retired as a Patriot
in 1988 with stops in

tipoff by big Jarvis George. Guard Marcus
Lane shot with precision, and led the team
with 17 points and one steal. Lane shot 75
percent from the field and made five of five
three point shots with assists from Jimmie
Taylor, Tony Frierson, AJ Robinson, and
Alex Robinson. Taylor added nine points in
the first half, eight rebounds and three as-
sists. Frierson played tight defense and
pulled down 10 rebounds. He also had one
steal and three assists. AJ Robinson added

'Dogs lose


dogfight


Perry takes win over
Suwannee Jan. 22


The Suwannee High
School JV basketball team
lost to the Perry Bulldogs
67-60 Jan. 22, for the
team's second loss of the
year.
The game was fast-
paced from the beginning,
resulting in an uncharac-
teristic 24 turnovers from
the Suwannee offense.
The majority of the
turnovers were from pass-
ing (17) or dribbling (3)
errors, as Perry's defense
was tenacious and quick
to intercept, steal, strip
and recover the ball. Perry
had an exceptional shoot-
ing night from the field
which made their offense
efficient, and gained a
large number of layup
points by breaking an in-
effective Suwannee full
court press. The referee
whistles remained very
quiet as Suwannee shot
very few free throws.
Suwannee only went to
the line three times in the
second half, late in the
fourth quarter off several
inside drives by Jimmie
Taylor. Finally, the con-
sistent weak point of the
team this season has been
unfouled missed layups,


14 in this game. This fi-
nally caught up to Suwan-
nee who have led by such
large margins in most
games this season that it
hasn't impacted the final
outcome.
Perry led the game from
the jump, ahead 34-31 at
the half and 51-39 by the
end of the third, even
though the score had
pulled to within one point.
However, Suwannee
showed a spark of life in
the fourth and pulled to
62-57 with 57 seconds left
on the clock. Taylor
brought his game inside
the paint to shoot and
draw free throws as Mar-
cus Lane hit a three-point
shot with 20 seconds left,
but Perry had pulled
ahead on free throws as
the Bulldogs lost by sev-
en. Scoring for the 'Dogs
was led by Taylor with 25
points. He also had 10 re-
bounds and one assist.
Guard Lane shot 54 per-
cent from the field to add
18 points and had a no-
table rebounding night
with six. He also added
one assist. Tony Frierson
had seven points, seven
rebounds, and two assists.

five points, two steals and
two assists. Guard Don-
tavius Hampton had a
strong offensive night,
leading the bench with 14
points while shooting 86
percent from the field,
many off fast breaks and
transition shots. Other
scorers were Jarvis
George (6), Austin Miller
(9), Austin Collins (4) and
Alex Robinson (1).

'Dogs take Ft. White
68-34
On Jan. 29, the guys de-
feated Ft. White in their
last home game of the sea-
son 68-34.
Suwannee led the game
from the start, but turned
up the heat in the third
quarter with an aggressive
full-court press. Scoring
was led by Marcus Lane,
who had 17 points in the
first half and finished the
night with 20, one steal,
six rebounds and one as-
sist. Jimmie Taylor had a
strong defensive night
with nine rebounds, five
steals, three assists and 13
points. Jarvis George
showed some life with
three steals, several
blocks, four rebounds and
four points. AJ Robinson
had three steals, six points,
three rebounds and one as-
sist. Other scorers: (Pts,
Rbs, Ast, Stl) Alex Robin-
son (9-4-1-2), Frierson
(5-8-2), D. Ross ( 6-0-0),


Hampton (2-5-2) and
Miller (3-1-0).

Suwannee downs
Santa Fe 54-43
Suwannee then travelled
to Santa Fe Jan. 30, beat-
ing that team 54-43.
The Raiders came out on
fire with quick offense,
three point shots and a
good defense to open with
a 9-2 lead. However,
Suwannee gained their
composure to bring the
score up to 15-13 by the
end of the first. By the half
the score was 26-20 in fa-
vor of Suwannee. Deter-
mination, defense and
steals from AJ Robinson
and a notable game by
Jarvis George pulled the
'Dogs up to 44-29 by the
end of the third.
Tony Frierson led the
night scoring from the in-
side with 14 points, seven
rebounds, two steals, one
shot block and shot 63
percent. AJ Robinson put
up nine points and three
steals, while Jimmie Tay-
lor denied Raider putbacks
with 10 defensive re-
bounds. Taylor had one
offensive rebound, two
steals and nine points.
Marcus Lane scored 10
points and had two steals.
Finally, Big Jarvis
George showed some
spunk and scored 11
points, shooting 75 percent
from the free throw line
with four blocked Raider
shots.

REGRETS, REMORSE

AND MISSED OPPORTUNITIES


IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GO THROUGH LIFE
WITHOUT MAKING MISTAKES AND E
MISSING OUT ON CERTAIN
OPPORTUNITIES, AND THESE MISTAKES ,N
AND MISSED OPPORTUNITIES ARE
OFTEN THE SOURCE OF CONSIDERABLE
REGRET OR REMORSE. THE FACT THAT
WE OFTEN HAVE CONSIDERABLE
DIFFICULTY GETTING OVER SOME PAST
FAILING 15 EVIDENCE THAT WE ARE
MORAL CREATURES AND THIS IS GOOD
IN MANY WAYS. MISTAKES HAVE A WAY
OF TEACHING US AND KEEPING US
FROM REPEATING OUR MISTAKES. BUT
ONCE WE HAVE LEARNED THE LESSON
FROM OUR FAILINGS, IT IS TIME TO
MOVE ON. THE PROBLEM WITH DWELLING ON PAST SINS OR MISSED
OPPORTUNITIES IS THAT IT KEEPS US MIRED IN THE UNCHANGEABLE
PAST RATHER THAN MOVING FORWARD INTO A FUTURE THAT WE CAN
ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT. IF WE HAVE WRONGED SOMEONE
IN THE PAST AND WE HAVEN'T TOLD THEM WE ARE SORRY, WE
SHOULD DO SO AND THEN MOVE ON WITH OUR LIFE. WE MAY NOT
BE ABLE TO FORGET THIS SIN OF OUR PAST, BUT WE SHOULD BE ABLE
TO FORGIVE OURSELVES AND MOVE ON. FOCUS ON THE FUTURE AND
CONSIDER HOW WE MIGHT LIVE OUR LIVES IN SUCH A WAY THAT WE
WON'T REPEAT THESE MISTAKES, OR MISS OUT ON FUTURE
OPPORTUNITIES.

RELIGION


Feeling like a complete failure, a beautiful
young mom responded to a parenting class I
was teaching with tears. After hearing her
story, I related to those feelings, without a
doubt, being a parent is hands-down the
hardest job on the planet! With two grown
sons and a teenage daughter under our belt,
you would think my husband and I would
feel some confidence in knowing what we
are doing. But, many days we don't! In fact, He
it is surprising to learn how many parents M
feel inadequate and even helpless in raising Mal
their children. Most Dads and Moms admit By Aln
to losing sleep over the impact their failures
and past mistakes will have on their chil-
dren's future. During these times we need to re-
mind ourselves that as parents, we can't change the
past, the future is yet unwritten, and that God's pur-
poses for our children's lives can outweigh our mis-
takes.
Authors Dennis and Barbara Rainey tell the story
of "Wrong Way Riegels", a football player for the
University of California in the 1929 Rose Bowl.
Seems that Riegels made one of the most famous
mistakes in the history of football when he picked
up a fumble and ran for more than 60 yards in the
wrong direction! He was finally tackled by his own
teammate just inside the 10-yard line. At halftime,
his coach gave a rousing pep talk to the discouraged
team and declared, "Same team that started the first
half, will start the second half." This meant Riegels
would be starting. The other players headed for the
field without him as he explained, "Coach, I cannot
go out there, I'm humiliated." The coach looked
Riegels in the face and said, "This game is only half
over, now get out there and play the rest of it."

SThose words are worth remembering to-
day for us parents. Maybe you have a pre-
teen or teenager and think, "This game is
almost over-in just a few years they will be
gone." Or your oldest may be 21 or even
1 29, and you look back to recount and re-
gret your mistakes, deciding the game is
over. Hear the words of Galatians 6:9:
"Let us not grow weary in doing good,
rt for at the proper time we will reap a har-
vest if we do not give up."
ters Do you feel like a failure as a parent?
e Land Accepting responsibility for the mistakes
we have made is a great way to ensure the
future looks different than the past, and
never underestimate the power of a simple, heartfelt
:p,% h. -.',. (I have said, "I'm sorry" to my three more
times than I can count!) Sometimes we may need to
accept our older children's choices as their own and
realize they have different dreams for their life than
we do. As our children grow up, our control grows
less, but our influence can remain if we keep the
lines of communication open. Ask God to encour-
age you not to grow weary in doing good as a par-
ent, your children need you. Because Every Heart
Matters.

The hardest job



on the planet


dmatier@ windstream.net

Einstein's Theory of Rela-
tivity was a theory of science,
having to do with the speed of
light in a vacuum, mathemati-
cal forms of physics, mass and
energy, etc. He never meant
for the term relative to be ap-
plied to ethics and yet in our
day we have a whole genera-
tion of people, including
Christian people, who claim to
go by the teachings of the
Bible claiming, "Everything is
relative; nothing is black, or
white." The word abomination
is seldom heard in our modern
world of relativism where
everything is considered rela-
tive.
But the Bible tells us that
there are practices that are
definitely wrong and the
choice is not left up to you;
God has already ruled on it in
His Word, you just need to lis-
ten: God's Word tells us that
women are not to dress to look
like men and men are not to
dress to look like women.
"The woman shall not wear
that which pertains unto a
man, neither shall a man put
on a woman's garment: for all
that do so are abomination
unto the Lord thy God." A
woman doesn't have to wear a
skirt all the time but God said
it is wrong for her to dress to
purposely look like a man and
it is wrong for a man to be a
cross dresser! No relativity
here.
Human sacrifice is forbid-
den! "There shall not be found
among you any one that
maketh his son or his daughter
to pass through the fire ... "
(Deuteronomy 18:10). In other
words you are not to use your
children as human sacrifices to
God or any other god. God
says, "Don't do it!"
God's Word says it is an
abomination to use tarot cards,
the Ouija board, seek advice
from spiritualist, witches, etc.
"... or that useth divination, or
an observer of times, or an en-
chanter, or a witch, or a
charmer, or a consulter with
familiar spirits, or a wizard, or
a necromancer. For all that do
these things are and abomina-
tion unto the Lord:"
(Deuteronomy 18:10-12). God

Sdid not leave any
room for relativism.
He didn't leave you
guessing! THERE IS
A RIGHT AND A
WRONG!
"And the man that
committeth adultery
with another man's wife, even
he that committeth adultery
with his neighbor's wife, the
adulterer and the adulteress
shall surely be put to death,"
(Leviticus 20:10). "Adultery, a
sin that you laugh at when it is
so freely talked about on the
sitcoms and yet God's Word
said it was worthy of death.
Why? Because the relationship
of a man and his wife is a pic-
ture of the relationship of
Christ and the church "Hus-
bands, love your wives, even
as Christ also loved the
church, and gave himself for
it; that he might sanctify and
cleanse it with the washing of
water by the word ... For this
cause shall a man leave his fa-
ther and mother, and shall be
joined unto his wife, and they
two shall be one flesh. This is
a great mystery; but I speak
concerning Christ and the
church," (Ephesians 5:25, 26,
31, 32). Jesus took it a step
further saying, "Ye have heard
that it was said by them of old
time, Thou shalt not commit
adultery: But I say unto you,
That whosoever looketh on a
woman to lust after her hath
committed adultery with her
already in his heart,"
(Matthew 5:27, 28).
And we can see from the
Bible that the practices of gays
and lesbians is no relative
matter either. "Thou shalt not
lie with mankind, as with
womankind; it is an abomina-
tion," (Leviticus 18:22). God's
Word condemns these prac-
tices and so many more. But
so many say you can't tell oth-
ers they can't do such-and-
such because he/she must
make his/her own choice. Yes,
but you, as a Christian and a
student of the Word of God
have an obligation to set forth
the TRUTH. Jesus said,
"Sanctify them through thy
truth: THY WORD IS
TRUTH," (John 17:17).
Everyone reading this mes-
sage knows people involved in
sin. Don't be afraid to con-
front your loved ones when
the opportunity arises because
it is wrong, but you must do it
in LOVE. Check your motive
for confronting them.
