By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
Two Live Oak men were arrested
Monday for allegedly raping a woman in a
wooded area of Suwannee County,
according to Lt. Wayne Musgrove of the
Suwannee County Sheriff's Office. A third

Arrested were 36-year-old Juan
Cristoval Mateo, of 12910 US 90 West Lot
90 and 25-year-old Juan Sebastian-Pedro,

South county resident John
Knapp has a message, and it's
a bold one.
"Now it's personal ...
America's coming for you,
Congress! Vote Liberals out in
2010! We The People...."
Those are the words that
thousands of people see daily
as they drive northbound on
Interstate 75 in Lake City.
Knapp's idea to erect the
billboard spread quickly, and


didn't take long to gain
support. He said about 80
people, mostly south county
residents, donated money to
rent the billboard, located off
Sisters Welcome Road near the
Evangel Church of God. The
rent is paid in full through the
November elections.
"Congress is absolutely
abandoning all respect of the
U.S. Constitution," said
Knapp. "We don't have a
Constitution anymore. It's a

How not


to take


the FCAT
The big test starts Tuesday.
But needless worry won't help,
say local school officials
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com
Sorry, this isn't a how-to guide for avoiding the
big exam. It's clear that if many students had their
way, they'd dart for the door. But since there's no
feasible way around the FCAT, here's one piece of
advice that all students can take with them into the
classroom beginning Tuesday: Just relax.
The FCAT is a very big deal, but it's not the end
of the world, say local school officials.
Each year over 1 million public school students,
grades 3 through 11 (and some seniors), participate

Alleged drug use leads

to child abuse charge
Took oxycodone while pregnant, say police
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
A Live Oak woman was arrested on a
child abuse charge for allegedly using
illegal drugs while pregnant, a case that ,
may be a first for Suwannee County. Penelope
Lt. Wayne Musgrove of the Suwannee Clark
County Sheriff's Office said 24-year-old Fortescue
Penelope Clark Fortescue took oxycodone
"during her nine-month pregnancy." He said the baby was
born hooked on the drug, which is the basis of the child
abuse charge.
"This is, I guess, a pilot case," said Musgrove. "There's
never been a charge in this area that I know of."
He said the baby "had to be weaned off the drug for
about two weeks at Shands in Gainesville."
The baby was born in late December. Musgrove said he
started his investigation Jan. 12 after receiving an
anonymous call. Fortescue was arrested Feb. 22.
Musgrove said other investigations may be in the
works.
"We are now looking at anyone using drugs during
pregnancy and filing charges against them," he said.

Keep Public Notices
In Your Newspaper!
Proposed legislation would remove
your right to read public notices in
newspapers, restricting them to
government web sites only.
We're concerned.
You should be, too.
Public notices are an important tool
in ensuring an informed citizenry.
They have played a key role in
America's participatory democracy
where it counts most: how your tax
dollars are spent and how policy is
made.
When located in easy-to-find
sections of your newspaper, they are
fully accessible to everyone, unlike the
Internet. Large segments of the state's
population, including more than half
of Floridians over 65 and one-third
of minority populations, do not have
Internet access.
The public's right to know cannot
be abandoned in favor of cost savings
that are elusive.

Web challenge could

benefit animal shelter
Through mid-April
The Suwannee County Animal Control
Shelter is entered into a shelter challenge
sponsored by Petfinders and the animal
rescue site. In order to win we need
everyone to log onto www.theanimalres-
cuesite.com and vote for Suwannee Coun-
ty Animal Control Shelter. You can do
this once a day. The contest runs through
mid-April. Please, we need your help and
it only takes a few minutes a day. Not
only can we possibly win the grand prize
of $100,000 but there are weekly prizes
also.


Consider that less than 10% of U.S.
citizens view a government web site
daily, according to the U.S. Census
Bureau. This contrasts dramatically
with the 83% of adults who read a
community newspaper every week,
according to the National Newspaper
Association.
Furthermore, a public notice printed
in the newspaper produces a
permanent record. A newspaper is
archived for years, and is not subject
to computer crashes and hackers.
Newspapers are easily verifiable,
fully transparent and represent
an impartial third party. Giving
government singular responsibility
for distributing public notices is like
putting the fox in charge of the hen
house.
Newspapers are your watchdogs.
Keep it that way. Contact your local
representative today and voice your
opinion.

Suwannee County 48th, 58th in 'health'


By Pamela M. Blackmon,
RN, BSN, MPH
Administrator
Suwannee County Health
Department
Suwannee County ranks 48th in
one category and 58th in another
among Florida's 67 counties,
according to a new report on the
health of U.S. communities.
The University of Wisconsin and
the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
produced the report, which ranks the
health of every county in the United
States, 3,000 counties in total. The
three-year project began in 2010 and
will end in 2013. These rankings
provide a view of the overall health


of each community and show how
certain factors affect health and
longevity. While these rankings are
referred to as "health" rankings, the
rankings are actually based on many
factors besides direct health care,
including individual habits and
behaviors, socioeconomic factors
and the physical environment. These
rankings are intended to help
communities better understand their
health, to get more people involved
in improving their health, and to
understand that many factors other
than medical care affect an
individual's health.
Florida's 67 counties are ranked in
two major categories health


outcomes and health factors. Health
outcomes are based of length and
quality of life, whereas health factors
include tobacco and alcohol use,
obesity rates, risky sexual behaviors,
access and quality of health care,
high school graduation rates,
unemployment rates, family and
social support, safety of the
community, and the physical
environment.
Suwannee County ranked 48th for
health outcomes and 58th for health
factors. It's important when looking
at these rankings to understand that
researchers looked at data from


Florida's 67 counties are ranked in two
major categories health outcomes and
health factors. Health outcomes are
based of length and quality of life,
whereas health factors include tobacco
and alcohol use, obesity rates, risky
sexual behaviors, access and quality of
health care, high school graduation
rates, unemployment rates, family and
social support, safety of the community,
and the physical environment.

THE VOICE OF
SMALL BUSINESS

The theatrics of

healthcare reform

By Dan Danner
The president's recent healthcare summit may have
been great political theater. But what really was accom-
plished on behalf of the small businesses that desperate-
ly need reform?
Small business owners simply aren't interested in po-
litical drama or more talking. They want to see less
rhetoric and more solutions that produce real results.
President Obama's proposal is basically the same as the
House and Senate's flawed legislation. We opposed
both of those bills because neither addressed the funda-
ment problem: lower overall costs.
To add insult to injury, the president's now promoting
even worse ideas that will further threaten the future of
small businesses with burdensome new taxes, mandates
and fees.
If the White House is serious about reforming health-
care, then it needs to pursue reforms that help the peo-
ple that need it the most our nation's small business
owners. Otherwise, the summit and its aftermath will
only show that small business has simply become a
sound bite for reform that provides little relief and in-
creases the cost of doing business.
Small business owners have been constructive and
valuable participants in the reform debate. They have
worked hard, taking time away from their businesses, to
help our leaders understand the struggles they face
owning and operating a business. They also continue to
urge policymakers to adopt ideas that offer sensible so-
lutions.
For example, the president could give small business-
es greater purchasing power to help drive down costs
by letting them pool their risks together across state
lines to purchase insurance, just like big business and
unions do today. Why is that so hard to consider? Or
he could support an idea called the optional free choice
voucher. This would allow employers to give pre-tax
dollars to their workers and let the worker purchase the
plan that best fits their needs, like a 401(k) for health-
care. These two ideas together create choice, portability
and puts the consumer in the driver's seat, a win-win
for employers and workers.
There are lots of good ideas out there but, sadly,
small business owners are left with a bill that's short on
savings and big on costs. They're now left asking, "Will
Congress and the president stop playing politics and
create reform that improves access and affordability, or
will they continue down the same path with new taxes,
mandates and fees that threaten my ability to run and
grow my business?"
It can't be emphasized enough in economic times
like these, when small businesses are struggling just to
survive, policies must be aimed at helping them. No
one has a larger stake in this debate. So we must tread
lightly and always remind our leaders in Washington to
continuously check their ideas by asking one simple
question: "Will this help or hurt small business?"
And our leaders also must realize that the old adage
of the healthcare profession applies here as well: First,
do no harm. Only then can they address real reform.

Federation of Independent Business in W.li ,,;I.i. .i,.

do more to tell the story of this event, showing pictures of

Local folks flock to a music lover's paradise, just over the county line


By Joyce Marie Taylor
Correspondent
In the small community of Rock Bluff lies a music
lover's paradise. It is tucked away on a quiet stretch
of road off CR340 in Bell. On Friday nights it is
standing room only inside the Rock Bluff Country
Store, where folks come from far and near to listen to
some of the finest local musicians show off their tal-
ents onstage. Home of the Rock Bluff Band, this
charming country store transforms itself into a mini-
concert hall with amazing acoustics to provide a fun
evening of entertainment for all who attend.
In late 1980, Linda White, owner of the business,
had a dream of opening up a country store and she
chose the Rock Bluff area to clear some land and
build the store with the help of her family. The music
stage and the Friday night jams just seemed to evolve
over time.
Linda has deep roots in the surrounding area. Her
grandmother was raised in Branford and her great
grandfather settled in Lafayette County in the early
1900s. Linda lived in Lafayette County for a while
and her son, Hardee Myer, lives there today.

With Craig Hardin, Linda and Hardee on guitar,
Randy Weires on drums, Dotti Leichner on bass gui-
tar, and Fred Figueroa on steel guitar and harmonica,
the Rock Bluff Band keeps the crowd mesmerized
with their performances. Each one of them has their
own unique style of playing and singing, and when
you put them all together it is pure magic.
From country, gospel, oldies and rock, to originals
written by some of the band members, they have the
crowd singing along and dancing to the music all
evening long. Guest musicians are always welcome
and many of them come back week after week for
their turn in the spotlight.
Jim and Eva came all the way from Lulu to perform
their musical numbers and afterward, Jim had the
ladies swooning when he got out on the dance floor
with his wife, showing off dance moves like you
wouldn't believe. Elaine and David Williams from
Hatch Bend, as well as some folks from Live Oak,
were there enjoying the entertainment, as well.
When band member Fred Figueroa performed his
rendition of Willie Nelson's hit song, "When Angels
Fly Too Close to the Ground", it was hard to believe


that it wasn't Willie himself in the room wowing the
crowd. Fred is truly a multi-talented musician and
songwriter and he seems to be the crowd favorite.
Guest musician, Mickey D, is always a hit when he
plays his guitar and sings old Gene Autrey songs, and
Joey Hall astounds everyone with his expertise on
acoustic guitar, as he sings some of his original songs.
Friday nights at the Rock Bluff Country Store al-
ways draw in a respectable crowd of at least 70-80
people, and each one of them are true fans of good
music, whether they are listeners or performers. The
action onstage starts at approximately 7:30 and nor-
mally runs until 9:00 or 10:00. The music never stops
for long, because the band members switch off with
guest musicians every so often, so they can catch a
break offstage for a few minutes.
The incredible part about this Friday night out in
Rock Bluff is that no one misbehaves, nobody con-
sumes alcohol, and everyone comes away feeling tru-
ly blessed to have experienced such amazing musical
talent. Linda proudly says, "The music gives heart,

Food for Thought

The Sabbath [Part 1]
Periodically I get literature in the mail asking
me why we don't celebrate the Sabbath in the
church of Christ. I would like to spend some time
looking at what the Bible has to say about the
Sabbath.
1) The Beginning Of The Sabbath: We know
God rested on the Sabbath [Gen. 2:2-3]. However,
there is no mention of any human being observing
a weekly Sabbath for twenty-five hundred years.
2) The Word Sabbath: Did you know the word
Sabbath is not mentioned in the book of Genesis.
The first mention of "Sabbath" in Exodus 16
when Manna was given to Israel in the
wilderness.
3) The Sabbath Law: The Sabbath law was not
given to man until it was given to Moses in
Exodus 20. Gen. 2:2-3 does not say when God
sanctified it, only that he did so.
4) Who Was To Keep The Sabbath? We find the
Sabbath was given to the Israelites ONLY. We
know the Day of Atonement was connected to the
Sabbath [Lev. 23:27-37]. We know for the
Christian, Jesus is our atonement! We understand
we are no longer under Moses' law [Rom. 6:6-7]

his brother coming from
Lakeland.
As Chad and Derek
approached the 1st stop
light they realized they had
no brakes. They were able
to coast through the first
light with no traffic. The
second light was red to
cross traffic and traffic was
stopped. They pray for
traffic to remain stopped as
they approach the light
with lights and sirens
going. The traffic began to
move and Chad had to
swerve to avoid a log truck
and car! The brothers had a
quick second to each other
one last time I LOVE YOU
before the tanker rolled,
landing against a light
pole, killing Derek
instantly and critically
injuring Chad. The EMTs
almost lost Chad in route.
Ruby was the first on the
scene, Ryan second. I
received a call asking if I
had heard one of our trucks
had rolled. All I knew was
Chad had responded. I
began trying to call family,
no one responded....
I now began to worry
and called my husband at
work, he knows nothing.
The school bus has just let
four of my grandchildren
off at my house. By now I
am frantic and tell the kids
to get in the truck and
fasten in, I can't find my
keys. I am in full panic
now. Ryan pulls into the
yard and comes in, I knew
something bad was wrong.
He looks at me and says I
don't want to tell you this.
I said just tell me. He says,
Mama, Derek is dead and
they don't think Chad will
make it. My world began
to spin and I begged God
to take me not my children.


I know God does not make
bargains, but I am thinking
with my heart not my head.
I am trying to explain to
Derek's son Justin what
has happened when I can't
grasp it myself! Justin and
I have to be told several
times before it sinks in.
Our world has fallen apart.
All we can do is hold each
other and cry. I don't
remember much of the
next three weeks. Parents
don't expect to bury their
children.
Each family firefighter
blame themselves, Ruby
for calling Derek when the
pagers went off, Chad for
waiting the few seconds
for Derek at the station,
Ryan for not getting there
quickly enough, and their
dad, Jimmy, the Fire Chief
for getting them involved
in the fire department. I,
the mother, blame no one.
It was God's hands. Derek
loved life. He loved being
a firefighter. He tried to
live life to the fullest when
in the woods hunting or
just riding the woods,
fishing, at his children's
ball games or at family
gatherings. He loved life.
A piece of my heart is
missing. My loved ones
each has a piece, but no
one can fill Derek's. Make
sure you tell your loved
one how much you love
them daily. Tomorrow may
not come.
We miss his funny smile,
his hugs, kisses and his
sweet face every day. He
was much loved, he was
much loved by everyone.
His family all try in their
own way to go on without
him.
Derek, you are gone but
not forgotten, although we


are apart, God has you in
his keeping, we have you
forever in our hearts. We
love and miss you.
Chad continues to
recover, but struggles
every day. His faith in God
carries him.
Our family continues to
serve proudly on the Fire
Department. Our son
Bryan hopes to soon join
them.

- Judy North (Derek's
Mom)

Note: Derek is the
..I,, o,. .. .,, of Lillian Floyd
of McAlpin and the late
Edward Floyd. He has
uncles, aunts, and cousins
in Live Oak and Suwannee

HUSBAND CHARGED IN SHOOTING


Jasper man murdered
his wife, say authorities

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.Iivingston@gaflnews.com
JASPER A Jasper man was ar-
rested Friday in the deadly shoot-
ing of his wife, a fourth-grade
teacher at North Hamilton Elemen-
tary School, according to Third Cir-


cuit State Attorney Skip Jarvis.
Police say Leonard Joeris shot his
wife, Lorrie Joeris, 42, in the head
last Sunday night with a .38 caliber
pistol at their home at 132 10th
Street Southwest in Jasper. A 9-1-1
call reporting the incident was
made to the Sheriff's Office at 7:29
p.m. Lorrie Joeris was still alive
when she was taken by ambulance
from the scene, according to Sheriff
Harrell Reid. She was later pro-


nounced dead by emergency per-
sonnel en route to Shands UF.
Lorrie Joeris was buried at Ever-
green Cemetery in Jasper last
week. She left behind two teenage
children, Westen James Joeris and
Elizabeth Joeris.
Her husband, Leonard Joeris,
was arrested and charged with
murder at about 3:45 p.m. Friday
after the medical examiner ruled
the death a homicide. Sheriff Har-


rell Reid said Leonard Joeris ap-
peared before Judge Sunny Scaff
Saturday morning where he was
denied bail.
"We served a search warrant at
the residence Friday night," said
Reid. "We retrieved all firearms,
ammunition and a computer."
Reid said it may be a few weeks
before further forensic tests are
completed by the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement.

1-75 crash
By Stephenie Livingston
JASPER A Jennings man died in a sin-
gle-vehicle crash on 1-75 early last Wednes-
day, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.

JASPER Special agents with the
Division of Alcoholic Beverage and
Tobacco, accompanied by officers
from Hamilton County Sheriff's Of-
fice, arrested Retha Walker at John-
son and Johnson at 1-75 and High-
way 6 for allegedly selling alcohol to
a minor.
Agents Rick Damon and Betty
Adazzio, assisted by an underage
investigative aide, reportedly caught
Walker in the act on Jan. 28. The
aide entered the business at around
6:30 p.m. while authorities waited


outside. The aide attempted to buy a
quart bottle of Bud Light beer from
Walker. After requesting identifica-
tion from the 17-year-old aid, Walk-
er glanced at the driver's license and
completed the sale, reports show.
The agents entered the store and
arrested Walker for selling alcohol
the underage investigative aide.
Johnson and Johnson was one of
13 sites checked in Hamilton Coun-
ty, reports indicate. Of the 13
checked, 11 were in compliance. The

to crack down in Hamilton County,
with the cooperation of the Hamil-
ton County Sheriff's Office.

Mayor's Corner


Continued From Page 6A

has increased lately, it is
due to an increase in natur-
al gas usage. With the ex-
tremely cold weather, peo-
ple are using more gas.
The price you pay for gas
is based on what the city is
charged. If gas prices go
up or down, then the price
you pay is based on the in-
crease or decrease. As
Mayor, I don't have any-
thing to do with rates but I
feel it is important to de-
fend the Council and cor-
rect statements when they
are not true. Your gas bill
was reduced approximate-
ly 61 percent in February
and 25 percent this month
because of the rebate pro-
gram. You will receive an-
other 25 percent reduction
on your April bill for gas. I
commend the Council for
approving my recommen-


dation for the rebate pro-
gram.
Over the years in my
Mayor's Corner in the
Suwannee Democrat, I
have encouraged you to
post your house numbers
in accord with ordinance
requirements. Some have
complied, many have not.
Chief Croft came to me
this week and again ex-
pressed his concern over
this matter. As I have writ-
ten on several occasions, it
is crucial that these num-
bers are on your house.
Your life can depend on
being able to locate you
quickly. It can affect your
insurance rating in the fu-
ture as well. With the new
water system, chances are
your ISO rating could go
to a three. Many factors af-
fect our rating, house num-
bering being one. Current-
ly, our ISO rating is a very


low four. Chad and I are
working on a program
where the fire department
will put these numbers on
for residents. This will be a
win, win situation for both
the city and the residents.
March 14 is daylight
savings time. I remind you
to move your clocks for-
ward one hour before you
go to sleep Saturday night,
March 13. You will either
get one hour more or less
sleep due to the change. As
I always say, if you don't
make the change, you will
either get to church one
hour earlier or one hour
late.
March 17 is St. Patrick's
Day. Many who are not
Irish celebrate this day.
Not being Irish myself, I
don't think, I'm not sure
what is being celebrated
on that day. I know you are
to wear green and eat and


drink green stuff. I would
be careful about eating
meat, mayonnaise or other
food that has green on it.
Be safe in your partying
and as always, wear your
seatbelt. By the way,
March is the beginning of
the "Click it or Ticket"
program designed to bring
attention to the need to
wear seatbelts. Not only
can your life depend on it,
it's the law.
The North Florida
Broadband Authority,
made up of 15 area coun-
ties including Suwannee,
was awarded a
$30,000,000 grant to de-
velop and enhance broad-
band service to the region.
This will provide the latest
in Internet capabilities. It
is important not only to in-
dividual Internet users but
to public safety providers,
and businesses. Having


this service will make our
region more attractive to
businesses to locate here.
Not being an Internet en-
thusiast, I don't understand
all there is to know about
broadband. Many people
in the know have im-
pressed on me the impor-
tance of this service to our
future.
Do you want some more
good news? The city has
been waiting on the test re-
sults for the new well field.
They are back and the re-
sults are well within DEP
guidelines. We can now
proceed with the purchase
of the well field property.
Our engineers with assis-
tance from Florida Rural
Water Association have
given their blessing to the
site. This is so important to
future economic develop-
ment. We can now service
city residents and future


demands from potential
developers with all the
quality water needed for
many years to come. More
details will come later.
The University of Wis-
consin recently issued a re-
port ranking counties in
the nation as far as their
"healthiness." Many fac-
tors such as health behav-
iors, social and economic
factors, clinical care and
physical environment were
used to determine the
rankings. Of the 67 coun-
ties in Florida, Suwannee
County was ranked 48th in
"health outcomes" and
58th in "health factors."
Each of us can have a di-
rect influence on some of
these factors such as alco-
hol and tobacco use, diet,
exercise and unsafe sex.
Other factors are depen-
dent on government and
institutions.


Rant & Rave
Continued From Page 6A


SE

I think it's ridiculous that OMI's motorized road sweeper
sweeps a whole road right before the lawnmower and
weedeater guys mow the right of ways, sending all the clip-
pings into the nicely swept road, then the next day the
sweeper comes back and does it again. This has happened
more than twice on Walker Avenue. What's the deal?

SE

To those who feel it is okay to set fire to your lawn to bur
off dead pine straw, dead grass and leaves, while causing un-
due stress to neighboring people and animals, the city ordi-
nance of Live Oak strictly prohibits it and so should you.
People and animals, especially ones who suffer from asthma
or other lung and heart conditions would appreciate it if you
would cease this dangerous practice. If you live out on a
farm it may be an acceptable thing to do, but not in the city.
All it takes is one spark to start a major fire. Do you really
want to be held responsible for destroying your neighbor's
home or causing someone to die from inhaling toxic smoke?
I think not.

I am told that gas prices are especially high in Suwannee


County to pay for our prison system. So if you see a middle
aged woman picking up trash by the roadside, just tell your-
self, there goes a tax paying, law abiding citizen doing what
the Suwannee County prisoners should be doing.

The person who ranted about the Feb. 19 cartoon (next to
the Rant & Rave column) was so angry and upset, that I had
to immediately find that edition and check it out! I fully ex-
pected to see something immoral, maybe on the order of
nakedness. Instead, all I saw was a cartoon full of the naked
truth! If you don't have the Feb 19th paper, and still curious,
as I was, try to get a back edition of the paper. It's well worth

tyranny."
Knapp and fellow Tea Party member
Eddy Roberts said they are tired of the
same old government ways and frivolous
spending.
"We're just both of the opinion that our
Congress is out of control," said Roberts,
a south county farmer.
He said he was behind Knapp every
step of the way.


"I was John's cheerleader," said
Roberts. "I thought it was a wonderful
idea. If we don't do something soon, this
country will be in a lot of trouble."
Knapp said other billboards with similar
messages have popped up across the
country. "Some modeled after our idea,"
he said.
Knapp said he and other Tea Party
members will have "tea parties" once a
month until October at the billboard, and
then once a week in November.


How notto take the FCAT


Continued From Page 1A
in the administration of the FCAT,
according to the Florida Department of
Education.
Last year, 1.76 million Florida students
participated, and this year that number
could be greater.
In Suwannee County, over 3,000
students are expected to participate in the
test beginning Tuesday, according to Lila
Udell, director of federal programs for the
school district.
All third through tenth graders will be
tested on reading and math. Fifth, eighth
and llth graders will tested in science,
and 11th graders and upper level retakes
will be administered in reading and math.
Now, all students are advised to
adequately prepare themselves for the
test. However, the trick is to do so without
pushing themselves over the edge.
"Our recommendation is a good night's
sleep," said Udell. "There will be free
breakfast provided at all school sites, and
we encourage students to take advantage
of it," she said.
The biggest piece of advice she gave
was for students to "understand it's a test
and a showing of your knowledge, and
that you've learned well," she said. "It's
nothing to be worried about. The results
are simply to let us know what you do and
don't know and helps us reinforce what
you have or have not learned."
Throughout the state, various school
districts have tried all sorts of clever and
sometimes wacky methods to put students
at ease on FCAT testing days.


In Hillsborough County, several
elementary school teachers administered
fake stress reliever pills to students -
mints disguised as testing aids. That idea
didn't sit very well with parents, and it's
not certain the placebo did anything for
students, either.
In Palm Beach County, in recent years,
it was reported that teachers used
storyboards, poetry, films, guest speakers
and even rap music to calm students'
jitters prior to the exam. That's all well
and good, but on testing day it's just the
students, their knowledge and oftentimes
their nerves sitting there in the classroom.
Jim Simpson, assistant principal and
curriculum instructor at Suwannee High
School, said, "here, we've been building
up to test taking day with practice
questions and study skills in the students'
homerooms."
The school has suggested subtle things,
like moving fast test takers to the back of
the classroom so that others don't feel
rushed, he said.
Instructors have advised students to
skip and come back to tough questions,
advising them to answer simpler questions
first, Simpson said.
"We try and provide students with
snacks and a relaxed atmosphere. It'll be a
fun few days," he assured.
For helpful FCAT tips and testing prep
for grades 3-11, visit fcat.fldoe.org, and
beneath the section labeled
"Understanding the FCAT" click on
sample test materials or FCAT Explorer.
And remember, don't stress. It's only a
test.

means exemplary fire
protection while Class 10
means it does not meet the

One of ISO's criteria is to

ranking the highest upon
completion of interviews,
Airth sought a raise from
$100 an hour to $125 an
hour and an increase in his


retainer fee from $18,000
to $20,000. He was denied
both by commissioners.
The new contract,
however, has a stipulation
that if Airth's contract is
canceled before its

Hatch launches Ag Commissioner

bid atop tractor


Continued From Page 1A

Agriculture and Consumer Services
Wednesday in Live Oak. Seated on a
two-seater McCormick CX90 tractor,
Hatch, a 59-year-old Democrat, said it
is his intention to travel 1,500 miles
over the next three months to garner
support and raise awareness of his bid.
"I want people to understand that I
will work to get this job, I will work to
keep this job, and I will fight on their
behalf," he said, as he rode past the
Suwannee Democrat.
Hatch calls the journey, which will
take him from Live Oak to Tallahassee,
up to Pensacola and down through
Jacksonville and St. Augustine from
the state's west coast past Naples, all
the way down to Key West "a part
of the job application."
He set out from here around 10 a.m.
Wednesday and hoped to reach
Tallahassee by nightfall.
For Hatch, it's about visibility and
recognition of the hard work that is to
come.
"It's time for Florida to hire a
commissioner of consumer services
who knows the ins and outs and who
will lead with accuracy and efficiency,"
he said.
Hatch boasts a lengthy resume,
which he says qualifies him for the job.
In addition to serving eight years as
Suwannee County Commissioner, he is
the former president of the Florida
Association of Counties, former
president of the North Florida Planning


Council, and a member of the FAC
Energy Independence Task Force.
"I'm a charter member of the
Statewide Water Policy Board, with an
active blaster's license and I've been a
policy maker since 1978, when I
helped write the Florida Right To Farm
Law."
For him, this statewide tractor trek is
a return to his roots as one of several
hundred agmen who puttered up to the
steps of the old capitol building on
tractors during the farm strike of '77.
"I was fourth in line," Hatch said
smiling.
The only difference this go-round is
that he's fighting a one-on-one battle
that he's ready to win.
"I've been the poster child for the
family farm crisis," Hatch said, "at
least that's what the old statesmen
considered me."
As Ag Commissioner, he'd be ready
to take on "the nation's dependence on
foreign oil, which is slavery to the
Middle East," he said.
"I don't need lobbyists to come
flocking on my behalf," he said. "I'm a
statesman, not a politician, and I'm a
worker."
He said if elected, he would lead by
forming advisory committees on the
issues conducting roundtable
discussions to find solutions.
"It's the best way to lead by getting
many voices at the table," he said. "It
worked for me in Suwannee County
and we'll make it work when I'm in
that main seat."

NOTICE?


Don't Let Florida Officials

Remove YOUR RIGHT TO KNOW

From The Newspaper.


Keep Public Notices
In Your Newspaper!
Proposed legislation would remove
your right to read public notices in
newspapers, restricting them to
government web sites only.
We're concerned.
You should be, too.
Public notices are an important tool
in ensuring an informed citizenry.
They have played a key role in
America's participatory democracy
where it counts most: how your tax
dollars are spent and how policy is
made.
When located in easy-to-find
sections of your newspaper, they are
fully accessible to everyone, unlike the
Internet. Large segments of the state's
population, including more than half
of Floridians over 65 and one-third
of minority populations, do not have
Internet access.
The public's right to know cannot
be abandoned in favor of cost savings
that are elusive.

Consider that less than 10% of U.S.
citizens view a government web site
daily, according to the U.S. Census
Bureau. This contrasts dramatically
with the 83% of adults who read a
community newspaper every week,
according to the National Newspaper
Association.
Furthermore, a public notice printed
in the newspaper produces a
permanent record. A newspaper is
archived for years, and is not subject
to computer crashes and hackers.
Newspapers are easily verifiable,
fully transparent and represent
an impartial third party. Giving
government singular responsibility
for distributing public notices is like
putting the fox in charge of the hen
house.
Newspapers are your watchdogs.
Keep it that way. Contact your local
representative today and voice your
opinion.

traveled to St. Francis Catholic, taking that win 11-
4. Their first loss of the season came against Dixie
County, Feb. 23, 7-3.

Combines

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
Having
lived in
the agri-
cultural
south, a
combine
used to be
a piece of
expensive
fan
farm
equip-
ment. "Combine" today
rings up the NFL.
For the past 25 years or
so the NFL has had work-
outs for potential draftees.
The workouts have become
for some teams as impor-
tant as the film. Excuse
me, it is no longer film it is
now tape or DVD or disc, I
know it isn't cellulose
based. Players are mea-
sured, and physically and
mentally tested.
Every player is asked to
lift, run and jump. Differ-
ent drills are designed for
different positions and of
course everything has a
measurement. If you are so
inclined to watch the NFL
network reporting on these
activities you would be
hard pressed to stay awake.
Potential NFL'ers are
checked on how many reps
they can do with 225
pounds. They are asked to
do a vertical leap, a long
jump and run the 40. The
highlight is obviously how
fast anyone or everyone is.
Will we see a 4.1, and if
we do can he catch, or
tackle or try out for the
Olympics. (Kelly Jennings
has an unofficial 4.2 and
an official 4.31, he is one
of the fastest guys in pro
football.)
This year's draft will be

Undefeated in

the District

After two weeks of
match play and three dis-
trict games, the boys and
girls tennis teams remain
undefeated in district play.
Although the Suwannee
boys suffered one loss to
neighboring Columbia
High (4-1) and the girls
dropped matches to Co-
lumbia and St. Francis
from Gainesville (3-2),
SHS tennis is proving to be
the strongest in the district.
Both boys and girls beat
district rival Wakulla High
School last week at home
with the girls shutting them
out 7-0 and the boys win-
ning a close one, 4-3.
Number one Justin Garland
lost a close match in a tie-
breaker to Caleb Fisher of
Wakulla by the score of 8-
9. Tyler Hadden, number
two, aced Wakulla's Josh
Oliver with an outstanding
match, 8-0. Marshall Bog-
gus, three, had yet another
close match edging out
Wakulla's Spencer Smith,
9-8. T.J. Vickers, four,
played an outstanding
match against Liam
Daniels while beating him

Outta' the Woods



Florida



turkey time


By Tony Y t111,
Better start brushing up
on your turkey calling, be-
cause spring gobbler sea-
son's here. Whether you
prefer to use a mouth call,
box call, slate or any com-
bination, March means it's
time to start talking' turkey.
One of the most coveted
and sought-after game
species in Florida is the
Osceola turkey, also
known as the Florida
turkey. This unique bird is
one of five subspecies of
wild turkey in North
America.
The Osceola lives only
on the Florida peninsula
and nowhere else in the
world, making it extreme-
ly popular with out-of-
state hunters. They're sim-
ilar to the Eastern sub-
species (found in the Pan-
handle) but tend to be a
bit smaller and typically
are darker with less white
barring on the primary
flight feathers of their
wings.
The white bars on the
Osceola are narrower, with
an irregular, broken pat-
tern, and don't extend to
the feather shaft. When
the wings fold across the
back, the whitish triangu-
lar patch formed is less
prominent on the Osceola
because of this. And,
Osceola feathers tend to
show more iridescent
green and red colors, with
less bronze than the East-
ern.
The National Wild


Turkey Federation and the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) recognize any wild
turkey harvested within or
south of the counties of
Dixie, Gilchrist, Alachua,
Union, Bradford, Clay and
Duval to be the Osceola
subspecies. Eastern
turkeys and hybrids are
found north and west of
these counties into the
Panhandle.
The highly anticipated
spring turkey season runs
March 6 April 11 in the
South Hunting Zone and
March 20 April 25 in the
Northwest and Central
zones. The exception is
Holmes County, where the
season runs March 20 -
April 4.
Hunters may take beard-
ed turkeys and gobblers
only, and the daily bag
limit is one. The season
and possession limit on
turkeys is two, except in
Holmes County, where the
season limit is one.
Shotguns are the best
choice when hunting
turkeys, but if you're so
inclined, you may use a ri-
fle, muzzleloader or hand-
gun, or you can try your
luck with a bow or cross-
bow.
Shooting hours on pri-
vate lands are one-half
hour before sunrise to sun-
set, but on wildlife man-
agement areas (WMAs),
you must quit hunting at 1
p.m.
Of course, you can use
turkey decoys to help en-
tice that stubborn old bird,
but you're not permitted to
hunt turkeys with dogs,
use recorded turkey calls
or sounds, shoot them
while they're on the roost
or over bait. You also can't
hunt them when you're
within 100 yards of a
game-feeding station,
when feed is present.
To participate in spring
turkey hunting, you'll need
a Florida hunting license


and a turkey permit. If you
plan to pursue a gobbler
on one of Florida's many
WMAs, you also must
purchase a management
area permit.
All of these licenses and
permits are available at
county tax collectors' of-
fices, most retail outlets
that sell hunting and fish-
ing supplies, by calling
toll-free 888-HUNT-
FLORIDA (486-8356) or
online at www.wildlifeli-
cense.com/fl.
If you didn't put in for a
special-opportunity or
quota permit, don't worry,
several WMAs don't re-
quire them. Visit
MyFWC.com/Hunting and
under "This Month's Hunt-
ing Opportunities," click
on "Spring turkey: Where
to hunt without a quota
permit" to see a list of
WMAs where you need
only a hunting license,
management area permit
and turkey permit to hunt
spring turkeys. If you take
a turkey with at least an
11-inch beard and 1 1/4-
inch spurs, get your name
listed in the FWC's Wild
Turkey Registry by apply-
ing for an "Outstanding
Gobbler Certificate."
There's also a "First Gob-
bler Certificate" awarded
to hunters under age 16
who harvest their first
gobbler, regardless of
beard and spur measure-
ments. Applications for
both are available at
MyFWC.com/Hunting.
Whether it's going solo
after that elusive old tom
or double-teaming a pair
of birds with your buddy,
March means spring gob-
bler season.
Here's wishing you a
successful spring turkey
season. Remember to in-
troduce someone new to
the sport of hunting when
you can. As always, have
fun, hunt safely and ethi-
cally, and we'll see you in
the woods!


Let's put the cold winter


in perspective, please


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

Nine days of unseasonably cold weather
in January hit us Floridians hard; that's for
sure. But the most vulnerable ended up be-
ing the wildlife, particularly those that live
in or near salt water.
Manatees, sea turtles and saltwater fish
all showed us their vulnerability to chang-
ing temperatures, and without help, many
of those impacted would not have sur-
vived. More than 4,500 sea turtles were
rescued, with an 80-percent survival rate.
At last count nearly 300 manatee carcasses
had been recovered. Cold-stressed mana-
tees are still being rescued.
"It was an unprecedented year; I've nev-


er seen any-
thing like it,"
said Dr. Rob-
bin Trindell, a
13-year veter-
an with the
Florida Fish
and Wildlife
Conservation
Commission's
(FWC) sea
turtle pro-
gram. "We


change presented by the world's leading
scientists and don't believe droughts,
floods, snowstorms or hurricanes have in-
creased in intensity and unpredictability
over the past decade, perhaps you can
agree with something I read in the Pitts-
burgh Post Gazette in late February. It
summed up my feelings on this subject ex-
actly, and those thoughts were written by
someone who sits on the opposite side of
the fence from me when it comes to cli-
mate change philosophy. But his point is
valid; just because we might disagree does
not mean we don't have some common
ground on which to meet.
Greg Parks is a small-business owner
and local politician from Pittsburgh. He
wrote, "We have a responsibility to our
children and their children to leave the
planet in a better condition than we found

tremes to help wildlife

can adjust to the un-
predictable weather
patterns is crucial.


loaded a large van with sea turtles rescued
from the Panhandle. I thought they were
all dead, but soon after they were removed
from the cold temperatures, they began
moving around."
Trindell, who says she was only one
small part of the effort, credits the survival
rate of these rescued sea turtles to tremen-
dous efforts by many agencies and volun-
teers who gave up sleep during the many
days it took to pull off this gargantuan job.
Before the last icicle melted in North
Florida, the public debate began on climate
change and the cold winter. It is important
to remember that weather occurs over the
weekend; climate occurs over the decades
and centuries. Climate looks to trends, and
the trends still point to warming tempera-
tures and major shifts in climate.
Katharine Hayhoe, a Texas Tech Univer-
sity atmospheric scientist and co-author of
the 2009 "Global Climate Change Impacts
in the United States," stated recently that
climate change means extreme events,
globally.
In Florida, "extreme" means something
different than to the rest of the country. Be-
cause of our location and our shape, we
will experience the impacts of sea-level
rise most immediately. Even though the
number of hurricanes may not increase, the
intensity of the storms will, just as the in-
tensity of the snowstorms in the northeast
increased this year.
Even if you dispute the facts of climate


it. To accomplish that
task we must put the
partisan sniping behind
us, ignore the cash calls
from the political indus-
trial complex and focus
on doable projects that
can make a positive im-
pact on the environment
by the end of the
decade."
Who can disagree
with that? So let's leave
the climate change dis-


cussion for another time and face the facts.
The global community has seen some of
the most extreme weather conditions in the
past decade, and models suggest this will
continue. For wildlife managers, preparing
for the extremes to help wildlife survive
until animals can adjust to the unpre-
dictable weather patterns is crucial. All of
this work requires funding in a time when
our economy can least afford it. But there
is one way to help that is beneficial to both
you and wildlife.
Purchasing a specialty license plate
helps pay for research and monitoring for
some of our most vulnerable wildlife. The
plates offered by the Wildlife Foundation
of Florida are manatee, panther, sea turtle
and bass, and all the money collected goes
to the FWC and other organizations to
support those animals and their habitats.
The Conserve Wildlife plate depicts Flori-
da's threatened black bear, and money
from that plate provides funds for many
other kinds of wildlife. Go to
www.buyaplate.com for more information.
When you give the tax collector the ex-
tra money for the specialty plate, you also
purchase a great piece of art to grace your
energy-efficient vehicle. Save wildlife,
support art and conserve the planet not a
bad way to spend a few bucks, no matter
what you believe.

How to Be a Better Friend


Let every man be quick
to hear, slow to speak,
slow to anger, for the
anger of a man does
not work the
righteousness of God.


R.S.V James 1:19-20


n his book How to Win Friends and
Influence People: Dale Carnegie gives
some very simple and straightforward
advice on making friends, namely,"Become
genuinely interested in other people." One
easy way to do this is to ask people
questions about their interests and
concerns.These questions should go beyond
superficial questions about their jobs or
their education, or how their families are
doing, and instead should strive to get to the
more interesting kernel of their affairs.A
good question about someone's profession
might ask what motivated them to go into
their field, or what sort of interesting
developments are happening in their field
today. People love to talk about themselves
and their interests, and by talking less about
ourselves and inquiring more about others,
we help to build a genuine interest in them.
We might find that other people really do
have something interesting to tell us. Ralph
Waldo Emerson is reputed to have said that
"Every man I meet is in some way my
superior; and in that I can learn from him."
Whether Emerson actually said this or not,
the sentiment is certainly one we all should
take to heart.We should listen to our friends
and neighbors, and perhaps even to our
enemies, and by taking a genuine interest in
their lives and their concerns we might just
learn a thing or two. We will certainly gain
their friendship and affection.

Dress




modestly

H t M tters esty should al- their style and taste without
Heart Matters low. Accord- compromising their values.
By Angie Land ing to the Dannah says, "There is a
Bible in I strong case to argue that
Sv Timothy 2:9, the end result of today's
S women are to immodest fashion is sexual
dress modest- promiscuity. I don't know
ly, with de- about you, but I want to re-
cency and move anything that places
Propriety. It my sweet daughter at risk
is interesting of having her heart broken
to note that by sexual sin." This does-
the word n't mean that women can't

from the Why don't we just make

"adorn." This as to point those who are
word is often looking at us to our Mak-


--~ --
What says "girl" louder
than ruffles and bows? A
family that I love dearly
just welcomed a new baby
girl into their fold...and I
immediately found myself
in the baby section of every
store I entered, admiring all
the precious pink out-
fits...and buying a few!
As the mom of a teenage
daughter, I miss the ease of
this kind of clothes shop-
ping for my daughter be-
cause in our culture, "cute"
takes a radical turn in the
pre-teen and teen years.
As girls grow and mature,
the clothing industry's ad-
vertisements seem to offer
less and less coverage.
It seems that overall guys
and girls are being exploit-
ed by the fashion indus-
try...because guys are
wired to appreciate visual
beauty and girls love look-
ing beautiful, the bar keeps
being lowered as to how
much "beauty" is revealed.
In the name of fashion,
many girls are showing
much more skin than mod-


used to speak
of God's cre-
ation, specifi-
cally the
arrangement
of the stars.
What is more beautiful and
points more clearly to our
Maker than looking up at
the sky on a starry night?
Such a view generates pure
and unpolluted thoughts,
unlike the thoughts ignited
by so many of the revealing
outfits popular today!
In an article titled Your
Daughter's Wardrobe: A
Battle Worth Fighting, au-
thor Dannah Gresh ex-
plains that God's purpose
for a woman sexually is to
captivate one man with her
beauty...but it is her re-
sponsibility to keep that
beauty a treasured secret
for the man she chooses to
be her husband. When
women dress immodestly,
they are "telling their se-
cret" to many men. In do-
ing this, we are missing
God's intended plan. This
is more than fashion...it is
sin. As parents, we must
call it what it is when we
talk to our daughters, and
help them make clothing
choices that will reflect

CHEATING


By David H. Matier,
Doctor of Pastoral Care
dmatier@windstream.net


Adulterous relationships end in
tragedy! David's relationship with Bath-
sheba is recorded in II Samuel 11.
David had sent his men of war off to
battle and on a particular night ...it
came to pass in an eveningtide, that
David arose upon the roof of the king's
house: and from the roof he saw a
woman washing herself; and the woman
was very beautiful to look upon, (II
Samuel 11:2). If you go on and read
the rest of the story in your KJV Bible
you'll see she sent to notify the king
that she was with child (pregnant).
David arranged to have Bath-sheba's
husband come home and enjoy conjugal
pleasures with his wife but he denied
himself such pleasures while his fellows
in arms were at war (II Samuel 11:11).
Therefore David had Uriah set at the
forefront of the battle so that he would
be killed (II Samuel 11: 15), committing
murder to have his way, to cover up his
sin! And when he brought the mother
and the baby to his house the baby died
also (II Samuel 11:27). David suffered
many things as a result of this sin. In II
Samuel 12:10 he was told, the sword
shall never depart from thine house be-


cause thou hast despised me, and hast
taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be
thy wife. His lust led to adultery and
murder; tragedy!
Lust and adultery in recent times have
led to tragedy. When Bill Clinton smiles
who can't help but think of the infa-
mous day when he denied any unfaith-
fulness to his wife? It makes it hard to
believe anything he says now. Unfaith-
fulness in marriage or in the office of
the President of the United States caus-
es tragedy!
Politicians, men of power, seem to
think they are above the rules: John Ed-
wards while campaigning for the presi-
dency of the United States, and his wife
being seriously ill, Gary Sanford, Gov-
ernor of South Carolina, though married
went off to find his soul mate in
Brazil. Gary Sanford's wife did the right
thing by not standing shoulder to shoul-
der with him when he made his an-
nouncement because his lust and un-
faithfulness was causing tragedy!
Tiger Woods evidently thought he
was invincible but he found out the say-
ing, What is done in Vegas, stays in
Vegas, is a myth. His actions causing
tragedy; it is yet to be seen as to
whether or not his family will be saved
and many lost their confidence in his
character.
Even more recently there was an
ESPN reporter who lost his job and his
family because of having an affair with
a fellow/female employee. Again,
tragedy.
Most of these relationships probably
start with lust beginning like David's
during the spur-of-the-moment. When
you see that person Don't look back
at him/her again. Keep going. Avoid the
temptation because it only leads to
tragedy!

EXTENSION UPDATE


THE BROWN LAWN BLUES


. r .



Submitted by:
Carolyn Saft
Horticulture Extension
Agent/ SRP Education
Coordinator

Has Old Man Winter got
you singing the blues and
yearning for some signs of
spring? You can give
your yard a little help by
fertilizing your lawn in
mid to late March or when
the grass starts actively
growing. All the common
lawn grasses, such as
Bahia, Centipede, St. Au-
gustine and Zoysia, will
benefit from an application
of fertilizer.
Shopping for fertilizer
can be like shopping for a
car a lot of choices and
fine print. First, remem-
ber that fertilizer is a pow-


erful tool that can help
plants thrive, but it also
burss" plants and can
contaminate our rivers,
springs, and drinking wa-
ter if used in excess or ap-
plied improperly. It is
also helpful if you know
what the numbers on the
fertilizer bag stand for. A
fertilizer bag that has a
grade of: 15-2-15 on it
means the first number
represents the percentage
of nitrogen (N) in the bag,
the second number refers
to phosphorus (P205) and
the third number refers to
the percent of
potassium/potash (K20).
For example, a 50 pound
bag of 15-2-15 would have
7.5 pounds of nitrogen, 1
pound of phosphorus and
7.5 pounds of potassium
(50 x 15% = 7.5 and 50 x
2% =1). The remaining
weight is usually com-
prised of inert materials.
Most lawn fertilizers
have higher amounts of ni-
trogen and
potassium/potash than
phosphorus. There is gen-
erally enough phosphorus
already present in our na-
tive soils to keep the grass


healthy. Look for fertil-
izer grades like 15-0-15,
15-2-15, 16-2-8 or 16-0-8
because potassium/potash
should be generally be ap-
plied at equal or one half
the amount of nitrogen.
Be sure and look for fer-
tilizers that contain slow
release or controlled re-
lease nitrogen. These fer-
tilizers provide nutrients to
plant roots over an extend-
ed period of time. This
allows you to fertilize less
frequently and to prevent
nutrients from leaving
your landscape and pollut-
ing our springs and rivers.
To determine the amount
of fertilizer needed, read
the fertilizer bag label. If
using quick release fertiliz-
er, apply only a half-pound
nitrogen per 1,000 square
feet of lawn area.
Avoid using "weed and
feed" products because the
herbicides in the product
can injure trees and shrubs.


Remember
that tree and
shrub root
systems ex-
tend far be-
yond the
canopy drip
line and inter-
mingle with
the lawn


15-0-15


- I- Iwr*Li




P K ls -


grass. In addition, the ap-
propriate timing is often
different because pre-
emergent herbicides are
applied earlier than the
lawn needs to be fertilized.
Use of weed and feed
products almost ensures
that either the fertilizer or
the herbicide will be inef-
fective, if not harmful.
During the summer, you
can apply chelated iron or
iron sulfate iron to green
the lawn without increas-
ing plant growth. Applying
extra nitrogen in the sum-
mer can cause excessive
plant growth and create fa-
vorable conditions for dis-


ease and insect problems.
The greening effect from
supplemental iron applica-
tion is only temporary so
repeat applications are
necessary.
When applying fertilizer,
use a spreader with a de-
flector shield so fertilizer
does not end up on hard
surfaces like driveways
and sidewalks or in ponds
and other waterways.
Keep fertilizer 10-30 feet
away from any water body.
Avoid fertilizing right be-
fore a heavy rain or a rain
event forecasted to drop an
inch or more of rain.
By following these


guidelines, you can have a
healthy lawn and protect
our environment from ni-
trogen and phosphorus
pollution. For more infor-
mation, plan to attend our
next Florida-Friendly
Landscaping presentation
on Lawn Maintenance at
the Suwannee County Ex-
tension office on March
llth at 6:30p.m. If you
cannot attend the work-
shop, more information on
lawn care can be found on
