POPULATION ON THE RISE




Boom times back in Suwannee?


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
Suwannee County's popula-
tion is on the rise again, accord-
ing to a recent University of
Florida study. A gain of 2,870
residents is projected for the pe-


riod April 2009 to April 2010.
The state's population is on
the way up as well, with about
23,000 new residents expected
to flock to the Sunshine State.
It's a reversal in both cases
from last year, when Suwannee's
population fell for the first time


since 1972 and Florida's num-
bers dropped for the first time
since World War II.
The UF Bureau of Economic
and Business Research Depart-
ment conducted the study, which
shows estimated growth be-
tween April 2009 and April


2010. The bureau's director not-
ed the housing market is starting
to pick up in a number of places
around the state, which could ex-
plain the increase.
"Based on changes in electric
customer data, we believe Flori-
da's population has increased


slightly over the past year," said
Stan Smith. "This may be an in-
dication the state's economy is
no longer declining at the rate it
had been before."

in 2009 accident
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com
Chrysten Allyson Hudson, 19, of
Lake City, was sentenced Wednesday
to one year in county jail while await-
ing entrance into a drug treatment fa-
cility.
Hudson was the driver in a June
2009 Suwannee County wreck that in-
jured five area
teenagers, accord-
ing to an earlier
sheriff's report.
She was arrested
on a charge of DUI
and reckless driving
both resulting in se-
Chrysten rious bodily injury.
Allyson Hudson Court documents
suggested she was
under the influence of alcohol and/or
marijuana at the time of the accident.
Hudson was headed east on 296th
Street around 6 p.m. June 10 when the
2006 Mercury she was driving left the
roadway and struck a tree, according to
the Florida Highway Patrol.
Wednesday, the DUI charge was
amended and Hudson was formally
sentenced on three counts of reckless
driving resulting in serious bodily in-
jury. In addition, she must serve 10
years' probation, complete the Mist
substance abuse program, write a for-

tween a Ford Freestyle and a Dodge Chrysler, after the Honda rear-ended the Freestyle and the

By Jeff Waters

Meanwhile, Bass was

When Bass fell asleep, the
wife tried to escape to a


neighbor so help could be
summoned.
The neighbor found
Bass's wife lying in the
yard and called 9-1-1, ac-

carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com
Suwannee and other school
districts within the state are one
step closer to getting a share of
the $4.35 billion set aside under
the Federal Race to the Top Pro-
gram according to a recent an-

'It's


all in

Coalition hosts conference on drug, alcohol abuse


Carla Blalock addresses a crowd of more than 140 people at the Uniting
for Youth Prevention Conference.


See related story, Page 12A.
The Suwannee Drug Free Coalition hosted a conference
recently for local community leaders and those who work
with youth. The conference, held at Cerveny Conference
Center, focused on uniting local organizations, agencies
and businesses in prevention efforts to help young people.
Workshops featured presenters who are experts in
various prevention fields. Topics included: Preventing
Prescription Drug Abuse, Keeping the Legal Drinking
Age 21, Using the Arts in Prevention Efforts, Grant
writing, Finding and Using Data and a host of other issues
which benefited those working to help youth. The keynote
speaker for the event was Dr. Victor DeNoble who spoke
on the topic "Science of Addiction: It's All in Your
Brain."
Each year, substance abuse costs millions of dollars for
treatment, law enforcement and health care. The
Suwannee Coalition supports increased spending to
prevent negative behaviors before they become a
problem.
Co-sponsors for the conference are Florida Mothers
Against Drunk Driving, Tobacco Free Suwannee and
Suwannee County Schools.

Treatment for Strep Throat Infections
Strep throat is an infection of the throat that is caused by the bacteria
Streptococcus pyogenes. Signs and symptoms include difficulty
swallowing, swollen glands, headache, fever, and stomachache. The
condition is contagious, and can be transmitted through coughing or
sneezing. If not treated, the condition may lead to other conditions, such
as an ear infection, sinus infection, or tonsillitis. Although many sore
throats are caused by viruses and cannot be treated with antibiotics, a
diagnosis of bacterial strep throat should be treated with antibiotics.
Oral antibiotics are usually prescribed by a doctor after a diagnosis of
strep throat has been made. Penicillin, amoxicillin (Amoxil, Trimox),
azithromycin (Zithromax) or clarithromycin (Biaxin) may be prescribed.
Cephalexin i. is a cephalosporin type antibiotic that also may be
prescribed. Pain relieving medications may also be used, including
ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) or acetaminophen (Tylenol) for pain in the
throat and fever reduction. A saline nasal spray (Ocean Spray) also may
be used to help moisturize nasal passages. Adequate rest and hydration
are other non-medication therapies recommended for relief of
symptoms. A humidifier also may be useful for relief of cough and nasal
congestion.

THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLER


Sleep is a


funny thing

By Jim Holmes
I saw a mom in the grocery store the other day
with a little one maybe a year old and he was
literally passed out, his head resting on the shop-
ping cart handle as she browsed the aisles, coupons
in hand. He was totally oblivious to all the noise
and activity around him.
How I envied his ability to slumber in such cir-
cumstances. I'm sure I did the same when I was
that age, but those days are long gone.
Ironically, when I was that tyke's age, I fought
tooth and nail against nodding off. And I'm sure the
little boy in the grocery cart had done the same. Af-
ter all, when you are a child, you just know the mo-
ment you close your eyes, you are going to miss
something really exciting in this brand new world
that you occupy.
I suspect every little kid fights going to sleep ...
at least 364 days a year. "Mama, please let me stay
up one more hour," must be a universal plea heard
around the globe.
The one possible exception to that norm might
be Christmas Eve when, at least in my case, it was
easy to get me to go to bed. That's because the
folks warned Santa wouldn't come until I had
sacked out. Of course, just because I crawled into
bed without protesting didn't mean I'd quickly nod
off. In fact, I'd lie there in the darkness holding my
breath, hoping I'd hear Saint Nick's sleigh and
reindeer land on the roof. I wasn't sure what that
might sound like, but I figured I'd know it when I
heard it! Several Christmas mornings I'd ask to go
up on the roof to look for tracks. Somehow that
never happened.
Later, when I started losing my baby teeth, I re-
member being a little frightened of going to sleep.
I wasn't sure I wanted the Good Fairy crawling
around under my pillow looking for a tooth, even if
she was going to leave me a dime. In fact, back
then I often slept with my head under the pillow,
and worried if she came while I was in that posi-
tion, would she believe I was offering up ALL my
teeth for the taking. Admittedly, I was a strange
child.
By the time you are a teenager, you are certainly
willing to sleep, but only between the hours of 3
a.m. and 3 p.m. Parents like to think it is because
teens are trying to avoid mowing the yard, cleaning
the house or washing the car. That's only partially
true. The primary reason is just to avoid them!
That's because when you are a teen, you are con-
vinced you must have been adopted. There's sim-
ply no way a "cool dude" like you could be the off-
spring of such nagging losers.
As a working adult, I never seemed to get
enough sleep. Most often, it was some problem re-
lating to the job I'd be mulling over at 3 a.m. I
wouldn't have minded as much, if the boss had
paid a "worrying bonus" at the end of each year. I
broached the idea once. He just looked at me fun-
ny.
Now that I am retired, I don't need anywhere
near the amount of sleep I would like to have had
when working. In fact, I am almost always up
every couple of hours or so. A preacher once told
me it was God's miraculous way of telling me my
time on this planet was limited, so make better use
of what I had left. Far be it from me to question
God's actions. I just wish He had found a way of
limiting my sleep without involving my prostate!
Jim Holmes lives in Live Oak.


BIBLE VERSE
He had a dream in which he saw a
stairway resting on the earth, with
its top reaching to heaven, and the
angels of God were ascending and
descending on it.

I was the only
one at the breakfast
club that morning
who was wearing a
tie. And after being .
informed and ,pi
slightly chastised
by the group that
our meetings were Dwain Walden
informal, the dis-
cussion led to neck-
ties with a consensus that they are
non-functional except to keep gravy
off your shirt.
I had never been in a real deep dis-
cussion about neckties before but it
seemed a viable subject, given the
option was why we diagrammed sen-
tences.
I did point out that while I thought
a necktie was mostly ornamental, one
could be used as a tourniquet. So if
you got bitten by a rattlesnake on the
way to church, there was a certain de-
gree of functionality.
On the other hand, a clip-on bow
tie couldn't even be used for a tourni-
quet. Nor would a bow tie stop much
gravy from getting on your shirt.
I've noticed that some men have
trouble getting the necktie tied to the
right length. Often they are too short.
The rule of thumb is that the tip of the


tie should go just below the belt
buckle. But that all depends on where
the belt buckle is.
For instance the other day on tele-
vision's "Dr. Oz," a rather obese fel-
low was asked what his waist size
was. He said 38. Dr. Oz grinned and
told him that his waist was not down
there where his pants were fastened.
As it turned out, his waist was a 48.
Wearing a tie is probably due to
that syndrome whereby we do things
because other people before us did
the same things without being ques-
tioned.
Now I guess it's not really a syn-
drome, but I pointed out that we were
all eating eggs, grits, toast, waffles
etc. for breakfast because a long time
ago someone got up one morning and
decided that was the definition of
breakfast.
So what if we got up one morning
and decided to have spaghetti,
lasagna or country fried steak. And I
told them the story of the time when I
had butterbeans, cornbread and fried
chicken for breakfast. Of course we
had just unloaded a barn of tobacco
and the man's wife who was to pre-
pare breakfast for us had an emer-
gency to attend to and thus we had to
improvise with leftovers from the


previous night's supper. It worked
out pretty darn well.
I haven't had a breakfast like that
since that morning, but I also haven't
unloaded a barn of tobacco in many,
many years.
Back to neckties. I do believe
there's a factory somewhere that spe-
cializes in making ugly neckties. Al-
most every men's department will
have a rack of ugly ties that have
been separated from the pretty ones.
You would think that someone would
make notes and report back to the
factory that these things are ugly, so
don't do it anymore. It's like they had
lots of dye leftover from the Easter
egg coloring contest and rather than
disposing of it as hazardous waste,
they painted neckties. And in keeping
with the Easter custom, they should
have hidden those ties along with the
eggs.
So in the mode of treating a syn-
drome, today I didn't wear a tie to the
breakfast club, and sometime today I
vow to end a sentence with a prepo-
sition. Wow! I don't know where that
one came from.

A North Central Florida
9-12 Project Meeting will
be held on March 11 at 7
p.m. in the Taylor build-
ing, located about 1 1/2
miles west of 1-75 on the
south comer of US 90 and
Birley Street. A short pre-
sentation on Amendment
4 'Florida Hometown
Democracy Land Use
Amendment,' and a plan-
ning session for TEA par-
ty to be held on April 15
at Olustee Park in Lake
City.
On March 25, at the
same time and location,
the next meeting will fea-
ture Randy McDaniels
from the Jacksonville
chapter of 'ACT for Amer-
ica' who will give a pre-
sentation that will deal
with another threat against
this country and what we
must do to protect our-
selves against this threat. I
sincerely hope we all pay
attention to everything
that is going on in this
country and make our
voices heard! There really
is plenty we can do!
And please, make it
your business to read
about all the local elec-


Co.
tions coming up, learn
about the candidates, and
make sure you get out and
vote. There is no sense in
complaining about the
leadership in our local
governments if you don't
take part in the privilege
of voting and vote the best
person in. There are
many seats up for election
this year, and you can
make a difference.
On a personal note, my
best wishes to Randy
Hatch in his bid for state
Commissioner of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Ser-
vices. I have had the priv-
ilege of speaking with
Randy in the past on other
issues, and wish him the
very best.
There will be a 'cake
and ice cream' time of fel-
lowship following the
Sunday evening worship
service at O'Brien Baptist
Church this coming Sun-
day, March 13. Come join
us for a 'sweet time' of fel-
lowship. Evening service
is at 6:00pm.
And don't forget, this
coming Sunday marks

Don't know what others

would just leave the time


alone! There are still a
couple of places in this
country that do not ob-
serve this change, and
they seem to get along
just fine, thank you!
However, don't forget to
"spring forward", or you'll

to the things that are
working positively in your
life as you do to those that
are giving you trouble."

Man charged in beating


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com


A Lake City man was arrested
Thursday for repeatedly slamming
his girlfriend's head against a wall
and for aiming a loaded gun at her
face, sheriff's reports show.
Anthony Richard Avallone Jr., 29,
of 228 Aspen Street, Lake City, was
arrested Thursday by Suwannee
County Sheriff's Deputy Arthur Lee
Robinson and charged with felony
battery.
According to a probable cause af-
fidavit by Robinson, on Jan. 5
around 12:49 a.m. Avallone became


"very angry and started shoving (his
girlfriend) around the home" they
shared in McAlpin.
Avallone reportedly became angry
after finding medication hidden in
his girlfriend's van.
The girlfriend reported that Aval-
lone "grabbed her by her throat,
causing some abrasions and bruises
... then grabbed her by her hair and
began slamming her head up against
the wall, causing a large bump to
come on the front side of her fore-
head."
Avallone then allegedly located a
loaded, long barrel revolver, pointed
it at her face and "told her that he


gun threat
wanted her dead."
Avallone reportedly
threw her "to the bed M a L
very hard causing .
small bruises," after
she begged him to
stop. Anthony
Avallone was not at Richard
the residence when Avallone
Robinson arrived. Jr
Robinson later con-
tacted him by phone
and asked him to turn himself in, but
Avallone reportedly hung up on him.
An arrest warrant was then filed.
The girlfriend was treated at
Shands Live Oak for her injuries.

Cheryl Mae Brinson, Di-
rector of Curriculum and
Instruction.
As part of the next
phase, representatives
from the Florida Depart-
ment of Education will ex-
plain Florida's application
to federal officers and take
part in an interview session
scheduled the week of
March 15.
The presentations will be
videotaped and posted on-
line for viewing after the
winners are announced, but
that's not the end of the
process. At the conclusion
of the finalist presentations,
the reviewers will meet
again to discuss each appli-
cation, finalize scores and
comments, and submit
them to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Education for a fi-
nal decision on the distrib-
ution of funds.


Fifty percent of a state's
total award will be dis-
bursed to participating
school districts according
to a federal funding formu-
la (similarly used for Title
I), and the remaining 50
percent will fund state-lev-
el projects designed to ben-
efit all school districts
statewide.
Officials from the Flori-
da Department of Educa-
tion press office were un-
able to say how many states
are expected to receive
grant funding. A represen-
tative from that office, who
declined to give her name,
said that the final decision
for the numbers of winners
will be made by the United
States Department of Edu-
cation in Washington.
Winners of the competi-
tion are expected to be an-
nounced in early April.

jected a loss of 58,000 resi-
dents, with Suwannee losing
about 1.7 percent of its pop-
ulation. That was the first
time Suwannee has experi-
enced a population decrease
since the university began
gathering such data in 1972.
Smith said the recession and
the housing bust were the
main factors for the de-
crease.
Suwannee's projected
population as of April 2010
is 43,100, compared with
40,230 in April 2009, a 7
percent jump.
"It appears the state's
population loss was a one-
year occurrence," said
Smith. "Even so, Florida's
growth will be very slow
during the early years of the
new decade."
Smith said it will take an-
other four or five years for
Florida to return to its nor-

Daniel Lee Armstrong, 27, of Live Oak, was acquit-
ted Friday on charges involving the sale of cocaine
within 1,000 feet of a place of worship and possession
with intent to sell. Armstrong was also acquitted on a
charge of sale of a substance in lieu of a controlled
substance.
Jurors were shown surveillance footage that prose-
cutors said linked Armstrong to the crime.
"Based on the video, they clearly had the wrong
guy," said Justin Blow, public defender for Armstrong.
After hearing testimony from three law enforcement
officers, one confidential informant and a drug lab an-
alyst, jurors agreed that it was not Armstrong who
committed the crimes.
The Friday trial ran all day, but it only took jurors 25
minutes to return with their not guilty verdict on all
three counts.

Man threatens wife's rescuers with pistol

stood over his wife and pointed a 9
mm pistol at her and the neighbor.
"Defendant stated to neighbor and
wife he would kill both of them and
anyone who tried to take away him or
his wife while pointing the gun at
them," Allen reported.
When emergency workers arrived,


Bass reportedly put the pistol in a
holster wrapped around his neck and
under his left arm. Allen reported that
Bass "told a paramedic/firefighter
that he would shoot him and anyone
else there. I arrived and ordered the
defendant to lay the weapon down
and he refused. Defendant told me
two times that he would shoot me."
Allen said he had to grab Bass's


right hand and push the pistol away
from him several times before he was
finally able to handcuff him.
Bass was arrested and charged
with aggravated assault (domestic
violence), aggravated assault, as-
sault on a law enforcement officer
and EMT official, assault on a per-
son over the age of 65 and false im-
prisonment.


impact on Florida's popula-
tion growth because of the
attraction of jobs, followed
by retirees and foreign im-
migrants.
"Even retirees are affect-
ed by economic conditions
because of the housing mar-
ket," said Smith. "If it's dif-
ficult for them to sell their
homes, they may have to de-
lay a retirement move to
Florida even if that is what
they had been planning to
do."
A 2008 United States
Census Bureau estimate (the
latest year for which census
information was available)
reported 39,802 residents in
the county. Smith had previ-
ously explained the differ-
ence is in the way data is
collected. UF uses data from
residential electric hookups,
building permits and, to a
lesser extent, homestead ex-
emption claims. He said the
U.S. Census Bureau uses re-
turn addresses on tax re-
turns, births and deaths and
Medicare data.

easier and less tiring to paint a ceiling while standing
on the floor rather than on a ladder. When painting a
textured ceiling, be sure to use a thick-nap roller to
ensure that you get full coverage over the bumps and
irregularities in the textured surface. For a smooth,
drywall ceiling, you can use a roller with a smooth or
shorter nap. Use quick-release painter's tape to mask
off the area and drop cloths for your floor. It's
advisable to prime your ceiling before painting using a
primer with stain-blocker. Priming the ceiling or walls
before painting should ensure that one coat of paint
will be sufficient. For more information contact the
professionals at Live Oak Paint & Flooring.

CCS Center will soon

be planting vegetables


The clients at the Compre-
hensive Community Services
Center have a good reason to
look forward to the first
warm days of Spring. Raised
gardening beds have been
placed at the CCS Center and
they will soon be planting
their favorite vegetables.
It is part of the ongoing
support provided to CCS by
the Live Oak Garden Club.
The raised beds were de-
signed and built by two Gar-
den Club members, Earl
Black and Doug Ivie. The
garden beds are high enough
for even the clients in wheel-
chairs to be able to care for
the plants. The soil for the
beds was donated by Mitch
Beaver of Beaver Trucking
Company.


Members of the Garden
Club met at the Center armed
with shovels and buckets and
soon had the beds filled and
ready for planting. Members
of the CCS clients eagerly
helped spread the soil and
talked about what plants to
grow.
After talking with the CCS
clients and staff, it was decid-
ed that a third gardening bed
would be added at ground
level for plants like cucum-
bers. With completion of this
bed and the arrival of frost-
free weather, the Garden
Club members will be return-
ing to the center with plants,
seeds, spades and guidance
to help the CCS clients get
their gardens off to a good
start.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH
1 1 H II L, T'l
Q: Do adolescents have special
concerns for oral health?
A: No one has to tell the parent of an
adolescent that this stage of life has its
challenges. Hormones are raging and
the body is changing. That's why good
nutrition and oral hygiene are especially
important during the teen years. Cavities
and gum disease are not limited to
adults. Surveys have shown that
bleeding gums are most prevalent
among adolescents and that 75 percent
of 13 to 17-year-olds have had gums
that bled.
Between school and activities,
adolescents lead busy lives. Their
tendency to snack can lead them away
from a good diet and regular meals. If
they wear braces, remind them to keep
the spaces between the teeth and wires
clean by using floss threaders. There
also are special orthodontic
toothbrushes available on the market
that make cleaning braces and teeth
easier. If your teen is active in sports,
you should talk with your dentist about
what sort of mouth guard is appropriate.
A mouth guard helps not only to protect
teeth, but also guards against
concussion.

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT


DOH recognizes National Women and Girls


HIV/AIDS Awareness Day


In Florida, women ac-
counted for 34 percent of
AIDS cases and 29 per-
cent of HIV cases. HIV
continues to dispropor-
tionately impact black
women, who make up 15
percent of the female
population and almost 72
percent of the AIDS cas-
,es among women. Most
HIV (88 percent) and
AIDS (85 percent) cases
among women are the re-
sult of heterosexual
..I transmission.
Cindy D. Morgan, R.N. "The AIDS epidemic is


28 years old. Women
and girls in Florida are
becoming infected with
HIV at an unacceptable
rate", said DOH Secre-
tary Ana M. Viamonte
Ros, M.D., M.P.H. "I am
encouraging communi-
ties to come together and
talk about ways to in-
crease awareness and re-
duce HIV infections
among women and girls."
This year the Depart-
ment of Health is contin-
uing to focus on address-
ing the racial disparity


that exists among black
women infected with
HIV. Individual commu-
nities are mobilizing
around the "Sistas Orga-
nizing to Survive (SOS)
model, which brings
women of color together
to learn, empower each
other, and pledge to get
tested and spread the
word on the importance
of HIV prevention. The
first step in this preven-
tion is for all women to
know their HIV status.
Testing for HIV is
widely available
throughout the state.
Many locations will have
extended hours and free
testing on the days sur-
rounding March 10. A


person should get tested
if they have been in-
volved with or participat-
ed in unprotected sexual
activity or sharing of in-
jection needles (drug
use, tattooing, pkciuli-')
and syringes.
For more information
about HIV/AIDS, visit
the Department of Health
website at
www.doh.state.fl.us and
select AIDS/HIV from
the pull down menu. For
more information about
how to get tested, con-
tact your healthcare
provider, local health de-
partment or community
organization or visit our
website.

the commitment and dedication dental assistants
exhibit throughout the year.

Assistants Recognition Week: time for dental
assistants to receive greater recognition for their
own unique and diverse contributions to the
dental profession and the dental health care of
the public.

The American Dental Assistants Association
(ADAA) has been the recognized voice of dental
assisting for over 80 years. It remains committed
to enhancing the public image and stature of the
dental assisting profession and promoting quality
dental health care to the public.

by the ADAA, the American Dental Association,
the Canadian Dental Assistants Association and
the Canadian Dental Association.

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
The NFL is
quickly getting
ready for next /
season. /
Familiar names
are hitting the waiver
wires in all sports. Pre-
season baseball is
happening. The airways
are filled with the major
sports. Some of the
strangeness is we have
heard some of these names
before.
The New York Giants
recently cut Londen Fryar.
Who is London Fryar? He
is the son of Irving Fryar
who was the number 1
pick of the 1984 NFL
Draft. Grant Hill is still
playing NBA basketball,
dad Calvin is still part of
the NFL but he doesn't
tote the ball for the
Cowboys anymore.
Baseball is filled with
second generation players
from Matthews to Griffey
to Kendall. The list goes
on and there are even a
few third generations.
The MLB season will
unfold and another
generation of fans will not
know why some
announcers have a job.

home run.
On Feb. 26, the girls

: "We only had one hit in
the game," said coach
Tommy Chambers. "Santa
Fe is really the best team at
this point in the the
district."
Before playing Santa Fe,
the girls beat Hamilton 11-
1, Feb. 23. Sophomore
Tinsley Smith threw one
hitter while striking out
seven.
On Feb. 19, Suwannee
lost a hard fought game at

COMMENTARY

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
Continued From Page 1B

Stone won a Cy Young in
1980. Hawk Harrelson
lead the American League


in RBIs in 1968 before he
was the voice of the White
Sox. Bob Uecker (Mr.
Belvedere) would have
probably had a very
different life if he hadn't
been the third string
catcher for 4 different
teams. Tim McCarver lead
the league in triples as a
catcher and played in 4
decades. Ron Darling won
136 games as a big league
pitcher and had the
longest no-hitter in NCAA
history. The list of ex-
players continuing in the
media seems to have
multiplied.


As time goes by many
forget Joe DiMaggio was
Mr. Coffee, not the other
way around. Joe Morgan,
who does ESPN games, is
in the Hall Of Fame. John
Madden has one of the top
winning percentages ever
as an NFL coach, not as a
Madden player. Pat
Summerall was a good
football player. Yogi Berra
was a 3-time MVP before
insurance commercials.
And if you happen to hear
a Pittsburgh Steeler
preseason game, Edmund
Nelson was born in Live
Oak.


Pitching is Tinsley Smith.

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.

'I hear your wild winds
keening through the tall
Macclenny pines....'
From 'Macclenny Farewell,'
by Will McLean
Leaving the city, moving through several miles
of orange groves and heading down to a wooded
campground, fans of Florida acoustic music will
find the 21st annual Will McLean Festival March
12-14 at the Sertoma Youth Ranch near Dade
City.
Beginning at noon Friday, the festival features
over 70 Florida performers including this year's
winners of the Best New Florida Song Contest:
Dawn DeWitt from Lake Worth, Walt Leuzinger
from Bushnell, and Michael Denney from Cocoa.
Five stage areas provide venues for a variety of
entertainment. Workshops in guitar, banjo, dul-
cimer, autoharp, harmonica, voice and more are
free for attendees.
A special Teen Turf, organized by young per-
formers, will present a program of young artists
from age 9 to college graduates. Children's ac-
tivities include creative projects in music and
painting.
The festival offers crafts and a variety of food.
Guests may attend for one day, or may camp for
the weekend and take part in jam sessions with
the professional musicians. A Gospel Hour on
Sunday begins at 9 a.m.
Will McLean wrote songs about Florida rang-
ing from the moaning blues of Macclenny
Farewell: "I hear your wild winds keening
through the tall Macclenny pines..." to the
rugged rhythms of Wild Hog: "There's a wild
hog in Gulf Hammock I don't wish on any man"
and the foreboding of Hold Back the Waters:
"When the wild winds are blowing across Okee-
chobee, they're calling and seeking for other
poor souls."
Dubbed "the Black Hat Troubador," he "dirt
dobbered"(his own expression) from the Panhan-
dle to the Everglades, teaching all who would
listen about nature's bounty and man's propensity
for destroying all that makes the state lovely and
desirable.
McLean, a member of the Florida Artists Hall
of Fame, died in 1990. His thousands of friends,
and fans of the music he loved have gathered
each year since his death to honor him and his
music. In addition, they perform their own songs
inspired in large measure by McLean. The festi-
val, honoring him will close at 5 p.m. Sunday
with a finale of his songs.

When days get longer and the weather
begins to warm up, it's a sure sign that
spring is around the corner. After months of
cold temperatures and gray skies, just about
everyone looks forward to spending time
outdoors taking in the sights, sounds and
scents of the season. But with temperatures
rising and flowers, trees and grasses
beginning to bloom, it's also time to protect
kids from seasonal allergies and sun
exposure. Here are some tips for keeping
kids healthy all spring long.
* Look out for signs of seasonal allergies.
Hay fever, also known as allergic rhinitis, is
a common problem in both infants and
children. Common symptoms include
repeated sneezing, a stuffy or runny nose
with clear drainage or congestion, itchy eyes
and nose, throat clearing, sore throat, and/or
a cough that tends to worsen at night and in
the morning. Kids with seasonal allergies
also tend to breathe through their mouth a lot
and may have dark circles under their eyes.
* Limit kids' exposure to common allergens.
While it's impossible to keeps kids clear of
all outdoor allergens, there are some
common-sense steps that can help minimize
their impact, such as keeping kids indoors
and closing windows in the early morning

when the spring tree pollen count is highest,
not hanging clothes outside to dry and
bathing kids at bedtime to help minimize
nighttime allergies.
* Protect skin from the damaging effects of
spring sun. After being indoors for much of
the winter, kids are eager to spend as much
time outdoors as possible. To protect their
skin during the spring months, break out the
sunscreen and their favorite hats. When
choosing a sunscreen for a baby, toddler or
young child, look for a product that offers
broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection
with a minimum SPF of between 15 and 30.
Also consider a product that is water
resistant and one that is hypoallergenic and
free of fragrance.
* Don't forget about eye protection. The
lenses of children's eyes are extremely
sensitive. Just as taking care of kids' skin
can help prevent skin cancer in adulthood,
eye protection can protect kids' eyes from
developing certain conditions, like cataracts
and macular degeneration, later in life.
Everyone, including kids, should wear
sunglasses year-round, but especially during
spring and summer. Make sure to choose
sunglasses that provide 100 percent UV
protection. Hats with brims large enough to
shade the eyes, while not as effective as
sunglasses, also offer moderate protection
from the sun.

The State Library and Archives has added an excit-
ing new exhibit called Pestilence, Potions, and Per-
sistence: Early Florida Medicine to its Florida Mem-
ory site. The online exhibit, which can be found at
http://floridamemory.com/Timeline/medicine/, in-
cludes materials from the collections of both the
State Archives and the State Library that highlight
the role of health and wellness in the lives of Flori-
da's citizens and in the development of the state.
Florida was vivid in the popular imagination as
both a refuge for rest and restoration and a wilder-
ness of great danger. Doctors and resorts promoted
Florida as a healthy destination for "consumptive in-
valids, for the nervous and debilitated, and for vale-
tudinarians of all degrees," while advertisements for
tonics warned of "an impenetrable swamp, full of
snakes, alligators, turtles, and strange reptiles."
Beginning with letters detailing the settling of the
new territory in the 1820s, and the journal of a fami-
ly practitioner and farmer in 1840s Gadsden County
detailing his remedies for everything from common
ailments such as itches and toothaches to serious cas-
es of colic and typhoid, these documents show the
gradual evolution of health and medical practice in
the state. Letters, manuscripts, telegrams, and publi-
cations document the panic caused by yellow fever,
the care offered by doctors combating hookworm,
and the determination of midwives facing killer hur-


ricanes in order to reach their clients.
This exhibit offers distinctive educational opportu-
nities for teachers and students by emphasizing the
crucial roles African-Americans, Native Americans,
and women played in the evolution of medicine in
Florida. It features photographs of the first black
doctors in the state, traditional Seminole healers, the
first female doctor, Clara Barton during the Spanish-
American War, and Dr. Samuel Mudd (convicted con-
spirator in the murder of President Lincoln).
Clearly unique in content, the exhibit represents
one of the most extensive archival exhibitions of its
kind presently available to the general public online.
Through the use of photographic, manuscript, and
published records, the exhibit provides historical per-
spective on important issues-public health and med-
ical care-that the state and nation are still debating in
the most visible political and social forums today.
Today, the Florida Memory Web site provides on-
line access to over 550,000 photographs, textual
records, sound ,.... ",,.. and movin,,, images from

tions. The .... .,,,,,, is funded by a Library Services
