NOBODY HURT


Early morning showers and wind Sunday brought a pine tree down atop a home at 16555 162nd Street in Suwannee County. Homeowner Mary
Shappell says she had been keeping an eye on the weather in the region when nature wreaked havoc in her own front yard. Brothers Will and
Branson Starling of Starling and Son Tree Service Live Oak worked quickly to remove the pine, which left the frame of Shappell's roof cracked and
the front window shattered. No one was hurt. Photo: Carnell Hawthorne Jr.

A: Saliva, a mixture of water, mucous
and other substances, is secreted into
your mouth through your salivary
glands. You have three pairs of major
salivary glands-the parotids, which are
the largest and are in your cheeks; the
sublingual, which are under your
tongue, and the submandibular, which
are under your jaw. Additionally,
numerous minor glands inside your lips
and cheeks also contribute to what is
normally a steady, small flow of saliva.
The presence of- and sometimes just
the anticipation of-food, can stimulate
the glands to produce a heavy amount,
hence the descriptive phrase "mouth-
watering."
Saliva has many functions. The most
important is to moisten the food we eat
so that we can shape it into a ball,
called a bolus, for swallowing. Saliva
also helps us taste food. Our taste buds
react only to moist food. Saliva also
helps fight tooth decay It helps your
tongue wash away food particles and
because saliva is slightly alkaline, it
neutralizes some of the acids produced
in your mouth by bacteria.

WELLBORN NEWS



Outback



Postmaster



retiring

By Linda Dye
I can hardly believe it, but it's true. She has hinted
about the possibility for some time now. But ever the
doubting Thomas, I would simply smile, nod my head,
look at her and say, "Well of course you are, one day."
All the while never really believing she would actually
do it. But she did, or at least she will.
Yep, that's right. After 35 years with the U.S. Postal
Service, Iva Carlton, Wellborn's Outback Postmaster for
the past 23 years, will be officially retiring on Thursday,
June 3, 2010!
A Mississippi girl by birth, Iva was born to D.B. and
Bertha Phillips. She was just six when Iva's daddy's job
made it necessary for the family to relocate to Coolidge,
Georgia, where she and her seven siblings grew up, went
to school and formed life-long roots. Iva definitely con-
siders herself a Georgia girl at heart. After graduating
from Central High in Coolidge, Iva moved in 1963 to
Cocoa Beach, where she lived for several years before
moving in 1974 to Live Oak.
Iva went to work for the U.S. Postal Service in 1975
not long after she started calling Live Oak home. And
we in the Wellborn Outback were lucky to have her join
our community in 1987. After I opened my store in
1988, Iva, Charlotte Arnold, who owned the Carousel
Beauty Shop and Thrift Store, and this old outback gal,
yours truly, became good buddies. We lost Charlotte a
little over ten years ago, but she left us some great mem-
ories that we share with each other from time to time.
It seems Iva has come full circle in her life. She feels
she has been blessed. And I would certainly agree. Al-
though their father died when he was only 55, Iva and
her siblings rejoiced in celebrating their mother's 90th
birthday before Miss Bertha was taken. Iva told me that
her mother lived a wonderful life in that she got to see all
of her eight children and six grandchildren grown, and
six great-grandchildren who will carry on their family's
traditions.
Iva told me she is looking forward to spending lots of
time with her children and grandchildren. She has one
son, Mike, and two daughters, Sandy and Janet. Mike
works for the Florida Department of Corrections.
Daughter Sandy is a registered nurse and Janet is a book-
keeper. And the grandchildren, they are the light of their
Grandma Iva's life.
Oh yes ... let's not forget the PARTY... in Iva's honor ...
come on out to the Wellborn outback on Sunday, June 6,
from 2-4 p.m. and help Iva celebrate her retirement. The
party will be held at the Wellborn Masonic Lodge, which
is located next to the big oak at the crossroads caution
light of C137 and C10. See ya'll there. Refreshments
will be served.


Beginning April 11

Treatment for this Rare Syndrome
Marfan syndrome (MFS) is an inherited condition characterized by
abnormalities of the body's connective tissue. A defect in the gene that
allows the body to produce a protein necessary for normal functioning
of connective tissue leads to this syndrome. This rare condition occurs
in approximately 1 out of 3000 to 5000 people. Persons with a parent
affected by the condition are more likely to develop MFS.
Abnormalities may develop in the eyes, central nervous system,
cardiovascular system, musculoskeletal system, lungs, and skin.
Complications of the cardiovascular system, such as aortic aneurysm
and malformed heart valves, are the most severe symptoms. Glaucoma
and cataracts are complications of the eyes that may occur. The
condition may also lead to sleep apnea or emphysema. Those with MFS
may have arms, legs, fingers, and toes that are longer than normal.
Although there is currently no treatment available for the actual
syndrome and its cause, treatments are aimed at preventing
complications. Beta-blockers, such as propranolol (Inderal), may be
prescribed to slow down the heart rate and therefore prevent
complications of the aorta. If glaucoma develops, eye drops, such as
latanoprost (Xalatan), can be used to decrease intraocular pressure and
prevent further damage. 584654-F

standing water, like bathrooms and kitchens.
Laminate can sometimes swell at the joints
where there is topical moisture. LVT is not
completely water resistant because water can
break down adhesives if it's left for more
than 24 hours, but it is a much better choice
than laminate. We will have more of the

THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLER


Blowing my


brains out!
By Jim Holmes
One of the great things about being retired is that
you finally have enough time to tackle projects and
subjects that seemed to be too much of a burden or
challenge when you were still slaving at a job 40
"plus" hours each week. For me, that has meant
taking up a musical instrument...or at least what I
thought was a musical instrument, when I first got
started playing it a few weeks ago.
You see, I am trying to teach myself how to play
the harmonica. In the process, I have learned that
so-called "real musicians" don't see the mouth or-
gan as anything more than a glorified pitch pipe! In
fact, their distain is enough to have given birth to
an entire Web page with nothing but jokes about
the instrument and those who play it. ("What do
you call a harmonica player? Answer: Musically
impaired!" Or: "Who is willing to accompany a
harmonica player? The deaf!")
Despite this lack of respect, the "instrument" -
invented in Europe about 1820 long has been
popular in the United States. Among the historical
figures to play it: lawman Wyatt Earp, the outlaw
Billy the Kid ... and Abraham Lincoln, who report-
edly often carried one in his coat pocket. (Harmon-
ica joke: Why did Booth really shoot Lincoln? The
President planned to play his harmonica during the
play's intermission.)
The harmonica is my choice for a couple of rea-
sons. First and those folks who know me won't
be surprised at this it is cheap. You are going to
pay significantly more for virtually any other in-
strument ... even if it is used. Mind you, much to
my chagrin, I was forced to splurge and buy a
NEW harmonica. While I'm very much a fiscal
conservative, even a cheapskate like me wasn't
willing to wrap my lips around some other guy's
old, saliva-filled mouth harp.
Then there is the fact that your basic C scale har-
monica doesn't need to be tuned and only has 10
holes. I figured, learning an instrument like that
would be a breeze. I guess it would be for most,
but at this point I should tell you that I am virtual-
ly tone-deaf. While some folks can't carry a tune in
a bucket, I can't even find the well! Nevertheless,
I plunge forward daily, much to the grief of our tiny
Yorkie. When my wife isn't around, he's normally
at my side. Now the little dog runs and hides every
time he sees me pickup my Hohner. To spare
Scooter and my wife the grueling process of hear-
ing me play, I have offered to practice in the barn,
but that idea was quickly shot down. Lynda fears
my two normally gentle, but huge mastiffs who call
the barn "home," might well attack in an act of
self-defense.
This is not my first effort to master an instru-
ment. In 6th grade, a school music teacher talked
my parents into enrolling me in band, where he
promised I would learn to play the clarinet ... which
his brother then sold to them. He lied. (The two
brothers later went into the used car business to-
gether.)
Every evening at 7, I was required to practice for
an hour. Even a tone-deaf guy like me knows that
the clarinet has a beautiful sound when played
properly. Clearly, I never played it in that manner,
as most of my notes came out as squeaks. My fa-
ther once described my practice sessions as, "com-
parable to a chorus of frightened, squealing rab-
bits." (Decades later, I gained great empathy for
him when my own two kids, who unfortunately
share my musical abilities, took up the violin.)
Despite spending all that money to buy a clar-
inet, neither parent objected when I finally asked to
quit band. But I do remember my father saying
something about how much he'd now save on
liquor.
Jim Holmes lives in Live Oak.

FROM OUR READERS


To the Editor:

Attorney General Bill McCollum,

Recently, you visited Suwannee
County as the guest speaker of the
Suwannee County Republican Exec-
utive Committee's Lincoln Day Din-
ner. We want to thank you again for
your participation in that event.
At the dinner, you spoke about the
possibility of the Healthcare Reform
bill being passed. You said that you
were ready to file a lawsuit on behalf
of the people of Florida because you
feel that areas of the bill are unconsti-
tutional. Since that bill did, in fact,
pass on a totally partisan vote, you
have kept your promise and filed the
lawsuit. Your courage in taking the
leadership to file the suit brought oth-
er State Attorney Generals to join
you, stand beside you, and fight this
unconstitutional bill.
We, here in Suwannee County, ap-
plaud you for your efforts on our be-
half. We want you to know that we
totally support your efforts to stop
this government takeover of health-
care and the negative impact it will
have on the citizens of Florida and
the United States as a whole. Not
only are the Republicans of Suwan-
nee County supporting you in this ef-
fort, but so are many other conserva-
tives and concerned citizens in our
County.
Please let us know if there is any-
thing that we can do to assist in this
process as you move forward.
Sincerely,
Carl Meece
Chairman, Suwannee County
Republican Executive Committee

To the Editor:

I had often thought about going
and taking a look at our City Animal
Shelter, so I rode around there the
other day, and I want to tell you what
I saw. At the time, only one person
was there, her name is Sally. I asked
Sally if she needed any help, which
she replied yes, but the city will not
allow her to have help, they are afraid
one of the dogs might bite them and
then the city might be sued, even
though the person would have to sign
a waiver stating they would not sue.
There were 10 or 11 pens, one dog
to a pen, which cuts down disease
and fights. She had just let one side
out, and the dogs were rolling and
playing with each other like kids, so
happy to be out of the pen. She lets
one side out at a time. What I saw
were beautiful, grown healthy dogs.


They were playing with each other
and wanting her to play with them,
you could tell they loved her and
minded her. I asked her a little about
the pound. She has one building for
the dogs, that has 10-11 pens and a
smaller building for the cats, which
usually holds only a few, but at the
time, had more in there. I also asked
her how often she has to "kill" them.
She has to kill them once a week.
Now listen up citizens of Live
Oak! Once a week she has to "kill"
them. I am not going to use phrases
like piilliinl them to sleep" or "hu-
manely putting them down." These
are beautiful, grown-nothing wrong
with animals and she has to "kill
them!" How her heart must break!!! I
then asked her about adoption? She
says that at times she does take pic-
tures and tries to have them shown,
Live Oak is businesses, and some-
times there is just not enough thought
and care given to the animals. I told
her that I was an avid animal lover
and would be writing a letter to you
about the situation. I see so many
strays around our county and city.
I have fed and still feed the ones
that people have thrown out for one
reason or another, these dogs are
thrown away like the garbage. I am
presently helping to feed a dog that
was dumped as a puppy, I am one of
three that is willing to take the time
and resources to help our stray pets. I
keep food and water with me at all
times so I can help take care of these
animals that we choose to keep and
have ad then throw away. I am not
bragging on myself, just pointing out
what can be done. I went home with
a heavy heart and a prayer to my God
in Heaven, I asked Him to help me be
able to help the animals and our shel-
ters.


Later that night I went on the Live
Oak Web page, I finally found it and
looking on the animal shelter page, I
saw a dog that was put up for adop-
tion, July of 2009, yes, you read this
right, 2009, no one had bothered
since 2009 to update the page. I sent
an email expressing my dismay at
this, telling them "shame, shame"
and in checking the next day to see if
the picture had been removed, it was-
n't.
How can anyone expect these ani-
mals to be adopted if they cannot be
seen or stay alive long enough??? Re-
member now, they are "killed" once a
week. I want to go see the Mayor and
get his input into how this situation
can be made better. (As a footnote)
the picture of the dog was finally re-
moved a few days later. I hope more
up to date pictures can be put on the
website for the public to see and
maybe some of these animals can be
adopted. I believe with the right prac-
tices put into place, it can be made
better.
I don't claim to have all the an-
swers to the problems that I am refer-
ring to in this letter, I know that there
is a lot going on now that may seem
more important than animals being
"killed," but we are people, we can
survive, we can grow our food, we
can get out and find something to do
to live, these animals are like our
children, they cannot take care of
themselves, they depend on us. I
hope to be able to do what I can, I
hope the people of Live Oak will do
the same, go by the shelter, see Sally,
ask her what she might need and see
if you can help with it. You will feel
better doing it. Thank you and I know
she will too.

On Friday, the K-4 class
at Melody Christian Acade-
my will be "Hauling for
Haiti." We will be raising
money for the Harmony
Ministries School in Haiti
to rebuild. The students will
be learning bike safety all
week. Then on Friday at 9
a.m. we will be riding our
tricycles, bicycles, big
wheels or a small 4-wheel-
er. Helmets are a require-
ment (knee and elbow pads
are optional).
To raise money the stu-
dents/parents will find
sponsors to pay for each lap
completed or make a dona-
tion. Our ride will take
place on the driveway area
next to the playground with
cones set up for directions
on Princess Circle Lane.
Please drop off equipment
at the drive through cover
by the playground by 8:30
a.m.
Parent/grandparents are
invited to come and cheer
your child on. This will be

tioning (HVAC) system
typically referred to as the
air conditioner, which can
account for more than 40
percent of home energy.
One word of advice, energy
usage equals cost on your
utility bill. So, this 40 per-
cent of energy equals 40
percent of your utility bill.
Air leakage and heat losses
from ducts can rob your
system of its ability to cool
- especially when the
weather is the hottest.
A duct system is a very
important part of your air
conditioning system. Duct-
work is designed to deliver
the correct amount of con-
ditioned air to each room in
your house and then move
it back to the equipment to
be cooled (or heated). Here
in Florida, our ducts are
usually in the uncondi-
tioned attic. Leaky ducts
make your HVAC work
much harder-leaking just
20 percent of the air causes
your system to work 50
percent harder. Even if
your ductwork is installed
inside the conditioned
space (i.e. Dropped ceil-
ings, between floors, and
inside interior chases, not
in the attic), it is important
for it to be sealed to prevent
leaks from cracks in your
home.
A major problem from
leaky or unsealed ducts is


the loss of cooled air, which
is very costly. Leaky ducts
can potentially cost you
$200-$400 a year or more!
Another problem is that
leaking ductwork can cre-
ate pressure imbalances in
your home. This imbalance
can cause outside air to be
drawn into the house. The
outside air that is brought
into the house is hot, moist
and dirty in the summer
and cold in the winter. So,
you won't feel as comfort-


Set your thermostat at 780F or higher.
Use bath and kitchen fans sparingly when
the air conditioner is operating.
Inspect and clean both the indoor and out-
door coils. The indoor coil in your air condi-
tioner acts as a magnet for dust because it is
constantly wetted during the cooling season.
Dirt build-up on the indoor coil is the single
most common cause of poor efficiency. The
outdoor coil must also be checked periodical-
ly for dirt build-up and cleaned if necessary.
Reduce the cooling load by using cost-ef-
fective conservation measures. For example,
effectively shade east and west windows.
When possible, delay heat-generating activi-


able and your energy bills
will rise! In addition, duct
leakage can result in mold
problems and potential
health and safety issues.
The materials used to
seal ducts should be de-
signed to last as long as the
ducts themselves. Duct
tape is not recommended.
Its adhesive dries out in our
hot attic environments and
the tape falls away. A better
product to seal the ducts is
called mastic (see photo).


Replace duct tape with mastic and cut energy costs.

ties, such as dishwashing, until the evening on
hot days.
Over most of the cooling season, keep the
house closed tight during the day. Don't let in
unwanted heat and humidity.
Try not to use a dehumidifier at the same
time your air conditioner is operating. The de-
humidifier will increase the cooling load and
force the air conditioner to work harder.
In addition:
Consider installing ceiling fans to circu-
late the air more effectively. The improved
circulation will make you feel cooler.
Install a programmable thermostat, too.
Using a programmable thermostat, you can


Mastic looks like drywall
joint compound and dries
quickly. It sticks well and
needs very little prepara-
tion. If a larger area needs
to be sealed, make sure that
the fiberglass mesh tape is
used as the backing with
the mastic completely cov-
ering it.
Duct leakage wasn't
treated as a significant
source of energy loss until
it was identified in the mid
1980s. Holes in the duct
system come in many
shapes and sizes. It could
be from the air handler,
through wire and refriger-
ant line penetrations, AC
panel seams, tape failure,
poor application of mastic,
flex duct to junction box
connections, or an incom-
plete return plenum. The
can occur anywhere and be
any size. It is important that
your contractor is licensed,
well trained and experi-
enced. Ask to see a valid
contractor's license. In
Florida you can check to
see if they are licensed by
referring to the Web site
http://www.myfloridali-
cense.com/dbpr/index.html
- click on "Verify a Li-
cense," then conduct your
search. Don't forget to ask
for proof of coverage for
workers compensation, and
certificate of insurance cov-
erage for liability and prop-


ainerine Allen


erty damage. Also, inquire
about references and mem-
bership in contractor asso-
ciations.
Remember, heating and
cooling equipment comes
with three price tags: the
cost to buy the equipment,
the cost to repair and main-
tain and the cost to operate.
Your contractor should be
able to calculate your utility
bill savings and total life-
time costs. Finally, obtain a
written contract before al-
lowing your contractor to
work. Be sure to ask about
warranties for labor and
parts.

conditioning, contact

schedule the time blocks during which your
heating or air-conditioning system operates.
As a result, you can set the equipment to more
economical settings-such as lower tempera-
tures in winter while you are asleep or when
you are away from home. Choose one that can
store and repeat multiple daily settings, so
that you can have both a workday and a week-
end heating/cooling timetable. A manual
override feature is a great convenience, al-
lowing you to override current settings with-
out affecting the rest of the program. Look for
the ENERGY STAR label before purchasing
and make certain the thermostat is designed to
operate with your system.

Group reviews SRWMD land management practices


The Suwannee River
Water Management Dis-
trict met with more than 20
members of the public last
Wednesday to get feedback
on the District's land man-
agement practices. The
group, referred to as the
land management review
team, consisted of repre-
sentatives of public agen-
cies, conservation groups,
environmentalists, and pri-
vate landowners.
The review team heard
various presentations about
the District's proposed land
management plan before
participating in a field sur-
vey of the District's Owens


Spring tract and Adams
tract in Lafayette County.
Team members were giv-
en a survey to rate the Dis-
trict's level of compliance
with its land management
goals and objectives and
statutory obligations. Re-
sults of the survey, includ-
ing any comments from
participants, will be pre-
sented to the District's
Governing Board.
The purpose of the land
management team is to
guide District land man-
agers in fulfilling their
statutory obligations, com-
plying with District policy,
and improving land man-


agement practices.
"This experience gives
us the opportunity to get
feedback from biologists,
foresters, parks and recre-
ation specialists, environ-
mentalists, and most im-

Investigator Justin Bates
of the Live Oak Police De-

However, the homeown-

were clearly shaken and in
fear for their lives.

house a few weeks ago,"
said the resident's mother,
who stood outside the
charred mobile home con-

"They are trying to scare
us, and they have. We're

The resident called the

Sanders was arrested
and charged with burglary
of a dwelling, theft and

Padgett said Sanders
was also charged with the
unlawful use of a police

"A police scanner was
located on the front dri-

someone who knows us
enough to get this close to
our home."
City Councilman John
Hale, in whose district the
mobile home sits, said he is
worried about the safety of
those involved and is push-
ing for a reward for infor-
mation.
"We need all the public's
help in resolving this is-
sue," he said. "I've spoken
to Chief (Buddy) Williams
to get this in motion, in
both the possible arson and
homicide investigation."
Neither Hale nor
Williams are waiting for the
situation to get worse.
"Those who are doing
this obviously have no re-
spect for human life," Hale
said. "I've talked to
Williams and they are
working around the clock
on this."
Williams Monday morn-
ing was in the process of
contacting the local crime
stoppers investigator to set
up an alert and possible
$4,000 reward for anyone
with relevant information.
"We're assessing the sit-
uation, following up and in-
vestigating, and at our earli-
est convenience intend to
put out public notice re-
garding this situation."

Library funding restored at the last second


Continued From Page 1A

The roller coaster ride
began in early March when
the legislature cut all state
funding for public libraries,
a move that has become a
regular occurrence in re-
cent years.
A budget conference
committee cut library state
budgets at the end of the
2009-10 legislative session
to zero but restored it at the
last minute after thousands
of emails and phone calls
from concerned citizens


reached legislators and the
governor. This year, the
committee cut all state
funding to zero early in the
legislative session.
Since March, it's been an
uphill battle to restore the
funding, with the Senate
and House budget chairs
agreeing to fund only $11.7
million just days before the
budget was due. Just like
last year, legislators agreed
at the last minute to restore
funding to current levels -
the minimum needed to se-
cure federal matching


funds.
"At midnight the House
accepted a Senate offer to
restore state aid to public li-
braries to the current year
level of $21.2 million,"
said the Tampa Bay Library
Consortium's Charlie Park-
er, who prepared and dis-
tributed emails across the
state on the matter.
Parker said thanks to
those who made their voic-
es heard and helped pre-
vent the drastic cuts. He
said "over 60,000" mes-
sages were sent to state of-


ficials within the last
month.
"Senator (Charlie) Dean
and Representative (Deb-
bie) Boyd received an in-
credible number of con-
tacts both well over 500,"
he said. "And I know
(Suwannee County Direc-
tor of Libraries Danny
Hales) was promoting ...
aggressively. Suwannee
can't claim all of these
numbers, but I am confi-
dent that a lot of them came
from your community."
Hales said earlier that se-


vere budget cuts such as
those proposed "would be
absolutely catastrophic" for
local libraries. He said
Branford could have faced
possible closure with "sig-
nificantly reduced hours in
Live Oak as well as a "sig-
nificant number" of em-
ployees losing their jobs.
Suwannee County re-
ceives about half its fund-
ing from state aid. Last
year the county received
$515,267 in state aid and
will receive about
$554,555 this year.

Sometimes the signs of child abuse can't be
seen by the outside world, but the scars
caused by verbal abuse can linger inside for a
lifetime. Verbal abuse can make a child feel
unloved, unwanted, insecure and unworthy,
often leading to behavioral problems,
depression and anxiety. The next time you're
about to lose your temper, stop, take a deep
breath and think about what is really upsetting
you. Before you speak, consider how the words
you're about to say will sound to your child.

NEW PORT RICHEY-Suwannee
junior Abram Anderson was pretty
confident he would bring home a
state title this season.
Unfortunately, a technicality
cost Anderson his chance of
bringing home Suwannee's second
straight individual title.
Anderson, who weighs 139.0
pounds, beat Griffith at the
sectional meet a few weeks ago
and went ahead of him in the
bench press, outlifting him by 15
pounds. Anderson put up 315
while Griffith, who weighs 138.6
pounds, trailed behind with 295
going into the clean and jerk
competition.

Donkey basketball returns to Live Oak


Special

The Suwannee Storm basketball team and the
Suwanneee High basketball boosters will be hosting
the second annual Donkeyball game this Saturday,
May 1 at the Suwannee County Coliseum. Doors will
open at 2 p.m. and the opening ceremony will begin at
4 p.m.
The Circle "A" Donkey Company from Henry, Ten-
nessee will be bringing their specially trained donkeys
to Live Oak as players will attempt to play games of 4-
on-4 basketball while riding donkeys. There are spe-
cial rules of the game, such as staying in contact with
the donkey at all times and only shooting the ball when
seated on the donkey. There are no saddles-partici-
pants can only ride bareback.
The event will begin with an opening ceremony fea-
turing two local young riders carrying the American
flag, followed by four quarters of basketball (two
teams will play for one quarter only), halftime events,
and special surprise competitions involving the don-
keys which will be announced at the game.
The two best teams will face off in a special playoff


at the end. There will also be a donkey petting time
for the kids and participant awards which will include
tournament MVP. Last year's MVP, SHS junior Nikko
Lawson, will be returning to defend his title.
This year's lineup of teams is spectacular and
promises to bring laughs to all who come.
Two teams will represent local high school players,
including the SHS girls basketball team (2010 District
Champions), the SHS boys basketball team (2010 Dis-
trict Runners-Up), and the Suwannee Storm players.
The Suwannee County teachers and staff are bravely
entering two teams this year; one will represent SHS
and the other Suwannee Middle School.
There are four community at-large teams which will
also provide much entertainment. The Suwannee
County Sheriff's office, Live Oak Police Department
and the Division of Forestry will all have teams and
special guest Smokey Bear will be on the scene to visit
with the crowd.
Finally, the much-anticipated team of commissioners
and friends will feature Suwannee County Commis-
sioners Wesley Wainwright and Jessie Caruthers, Clerk
of the Court Barry Baker, and Branford FFA Advisor


Jimmy Doc Wilkerson.
There will be a silent auction which will include
items such as a wooden porch swing, birdhouse, and
homemade baked items.
There will also be door prizes, a 50/50 raffle, and a
raffle for a $100 gift card donated by Verizon. Stevie
D from WCJX 106.5 in Lake City will be the guest DJ
and emcee.
Spectators are strongly encouraged to purchase ad-
vance tickets to avoid long lines at the gate and to re-
ceive the special discounted price.
Prices for admission are as follows: All children
ages 5 and under will be admitted free to the event.
Advance ticket prices are $5.00 per ticket for all ages
six and older. Gate prices will be $6.00 for ages 6-11,
and $10.00 for ages 12 and up. Advance tickets will
be sold until Friday April 30th and are on sale now at
at Kay's Cuban-American Restaurant and Just Play It
Sports in Live Oak, the Flower Shop in Branford, and
North Florida PAWS in Jennings.
Sponsorships are still available for the event; please
email ufnetvet@msn.com for details or if you would
like to donate door prizes or baked items.


Anderson will take silver after tying for first


Continued From Page 1B

With three attempts, Anderson
struggled to put up 225 as official's ruled
the first two lifts were illegal.
"I lifted first. I could have done more
on the clean and jerk, but I kept
scratching," Anderson said. "I wanted to
go higher but coach wouldn't let me.
"My bench was almost perfect but I
kept popping my elbow, which is
illegal." Anderson said.
"He had three attempts to get up a
good lift and he scratched the first two,
which I agreed with," said Suwannee
coach John Hunt. "The first one he
scratched, the second one was a worse
attempt, it was awful."
Not wanting to jeopardize his place on
the stand, Hunt decided against
Anderson's wishes of going up higher, to
settle for the weight on the bar to clinch
a medal.
"He wanted to go up higher and I
understood why but I also knew at that


point it was a two-man horse race," Hunt
said. "If he goes higher weight and he
scratches he gets last. So we kept the
same weight up to ensure he finish in the
top two."
Finally on the third and last attempt,
Anderson was able to put up a successful
lift at 125 to finish with 535.
Griffith knew he had to make up
fifteen pounds to tie Anderson and win
the title by being the lower-weight lifter.
Griffith had to get up 240 in the clean
and jerk to tie Anderson and successfully
did on his first attempt.
According to the Florida High School
Athletic Association rules, ties in
weightlifing are broken according to
whoever weighs less. Griffith was
awarded the title by 0.4 pounds.
"I knew he was going to tie me, he
was under me in weight and after I
missed his family started cheering for
him, they were happy to see me fail, "
Anderson said.
Both Anderson and Griffith were


aware of the tiebreaker rules but that
doesn't mean Anderson agrees with
them.
"Wish we could have kept going, I
would have rather him beat me straight
up," Anderson said.
Hunt agrees with the current
tiebreaking system though and also said
that everyone is fully aware of it.
"The rule is fine, it makes perfect
sense to do it that way," Hunt said. "I
have no problem at all with that, it's
written in stone, everybody knows going
in the rules."
The dramatic ending overshadowed
the performances of the other two
Suwannee lifters, Alex Falleck, who
finished sixth in the 219 pound class,
and Josh Hannah, who finished in tenth
in the 239 pound class.
"We took three guys to state and our
goal was to get all three personal records
and all three did that," Hunt said. "All of
them had a good meet, it's disappointing
about Abram getting nipped though."


Baker County defended their state
championship for the third straight
season finishing with 21 points. Arnold
was second with 20, Matanzas was third
with 17, Blountstown and Fort White
tied for fourth with 14, and Avon Park,
Bolles and Tavares tied for sixth with 10
points.
Altha, American Heritage, North
Marion and Trinity Catholic tied for
ninth with 7 points one point ahead of
Suwannee, which placed thirteenth with
six points.
Team points are awarded, 7 for first, 5
for second, 4 for third, 3 for fourth, 2 for
fifth and 1 for sixth place individual
finishes.
If Anderson can take anything away
from the meet, it's that Griffith struggled
in back-to-back years at state finishing
second before winning his first state
title. Anderson finished sixth last season
and second this season and has a chance
to return his senior year next year as
well.

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.

Draft evaluation

the work of alien
tLc'lii 1 .--, and probably
issued at NASA. After
round 9 I wasn't sure
Dick and Lonnie weren't
making the picks. I felt
like I was in Area 51.
Visions of draft guru
status danced in my head
I was right on 5 of the
first 7. Oakland was next
and they picked Bruce
Campbell just as I
predicted, but I didn't
realize I was so good they
would pick him two days
later in round 4. Oakland
picked McClain Friday
night and then Buffalo
burst my bubble with
Spiller and the Jaguars at
pick 10 drafted a guy I
hadn't heard of, but only
had the 3 same letters in


his name twice ... Alualu. I
glanced at Lonnie,
Matthews is going to be
the next running back
picked he smirked, Dick
was gone probably texting
Tebow to get ready.
Three trades followed
and my predictions were
in chaos, they were
waving good bye to the
Tidy Bowl Man. Things
gradually worked out and
at pick 21 I was right on,
the Bengals took
Gresham, not Grits but the
TE from Oklahoma. Then


just as before there were
six trades in the next 12
picks. The Amazing
Kreskin would have been
stumped. I had 26 of the
32 players going in round
1 correct. Only six players
going to the right teams.
This isn't even a good
score for horseshoes or
hand grenades. German
Shepherds could probably
been trained to be better.
I have no idea who won
the contest but apparently
the states of Oklahoma
and Florida could have
combined for their own
pro team. Unofficially 11
players from schools in
those states were drafted
in round 1. The Gators had
three in round 2 and one in
rounds 3, 4 and 5. South


Florida, Central Florida,
Florida Atlantic, Miami
and FSU all had players
picked.
My big bold prediction
of Tim Tebow going in
round 2 to Denver was


right team, wrong round.
Friday I will talk about
Tebow and tell you why
some of sports talking
heads should revisit the
French Revolution. The
guy can play.

finish by Tanisha Wheeler in the girls pole
vault.

Calling all vendors
The Branford River Reunion Committee is starting to get their
plans together for the 4th of July Celebration this year.
The schedule for the day has changed a little bit this year. In
the past the day started out earlier however due to the heat
we've decided to start the day around 12 noon. The booths
can set up around 12 and be able to serve people during the
afternoon and also in the evening (cooler) before the fire-
works.
The opening ceremony will be at noon, following will be the
Pet Contest, Bedrock Derby and many other things. The pa-
rade will be at 6 p.m. and line up at 5 p.m.
There is still time to get registered for a booth so give Peggy
Terry a call at 935-0021. If no answer please leave a message.
We will let you know more about the day's celebration in the
future.

Staying cool in the

summer sun


Summer is a season many people
eagerly anticipate. Kids enjoy
endless summer days away from the
classroom, while adults feel
rejuvenated thanks to warm air and
summer vacation.

But summer isn't always a source
of smiles. Summer heat can take an
otherwise laid-back day and turn it
into an uncomfortable nightmare.
However, there are ways to stay cool
and comfortable in the summer sun.

Drink plenty of fluids. Dehydration
occurs when the amount of body
fluid lost exceeds the amount that is
taken in. Water is typically what the
body loses most. During the summer
months overexposure to heat can
quickly lead to dehydration. To avoid
dehydrating this summer, be sure to
drink plenty of fluids, and not just
water. While water is essential to
avoiding dehydration, drinks that
contain carbohydrates and
electrolytes, including Gatorade(R),
can help fight dehydration as well.

Close windows during extreme
heat. Sometimes open windows can
actually make a home more
uncomfortable. During extreme heat,
draw the blinds and shut the
windows. When the weather is very
warm, open windows allow hot air in.

Be smart about exercise. When
exercising, particularly during the
warmer months, you're going to
sweat quite a bit. Heavy sweating
removes salt and minerals from the
body, and these need to be replaced

once you have finished your
workout. Non-alcoholic beverages
can help replace lost salt and
minerals, but those on a low-salt diet
should consult a physician before
drinking a sports beverage after
working out.

Restrict time outdoors to cooler
hours. While it's great to get outside
in the summer sun, it's ideal to do so
during certain times of the day when
the heat won't feel so overwhelming.
Limit outdoor activities to morning
and evening hours, when the
temperatures are more mild and the
sun won't be as hot. When resting,
rest in the shade to give your body a
chance to recover.

Find an air conditioned place to
spend your time. If your home or
apartment does not have air
conditioning, find a place that does
where you can spend your time.
Public libraries, museums and movie
theaters can be a great place to
spend time and cool off. Even for
those who don't like air conditioning,
certain days can be unbearable
without air conditioning.

Stay cool in your wardrobe as
well. Layers help you keep warm in
the winter and shedding layers help
you stay cool in the summer. Wear
as little as possible when spending
time at home during the summer.
Lightweight, loose-fitting clothing
can help keep your body
temperature down on hot days.

Due to volunteer leadership staffing difficulties, AARP
Tax-Aide has found it necessary to temporarily suspend
its free volunteer tax preparation service in Suwannee,
Hamilton and Columbia counties this tax filing season
that would have begun Feb. 1. AARP Tax-Aide wants all
citizens to know that they are deeply committed to assist-
ing the taxpayers in these areas, and they are working to
rectify this situation for next year. In the interim, to lo-
cate an alternate site near them, taxpayers may visit the
AARP Tax-Aide Web site at www.aarp.org/taxaide, or
call toll-free 1-888-227-7669. AARP Tax-Aide is a pro-
gram of the AARP Foundation, offered in conjunction
with the IRS.

The Branford River Reunion Committee is starting to get
their plans together for the 4th of July Celebration this
year.
The schedule for the day has changed a little bit this
year. In the past the day started out earlier however due


to the heat we've decided to start the day around 12
noon. The booths can set up around 12 and be able to
serve people during the afternoon and also in the evening
(cooler) before the fireworks.
The opening ceremony will be at noon, following will be
the Pet Contest, Bedrock Derby and many other things.
The parade will be at 6 p.m. and line up at 5 p.m.
There is still time to get registered for a booth so give
Peggy Terry a call at 935-0021. If no answer please leave
a message.
We will let you know more about the day's celebration in
the future.
For changes or additions please contact
Linda Smith at 362-1734 ext. 150.

Foodstuff:




Always room for Jell-O


By Scott Hutcheson
CNHI News Service


Last week life took me
to Minnesota. This was
not my first trip to the
"Land of 10,000 Lakes"
and I always enjoy the
time I spend there. Min-
nesotans are friendly
folks, not too dissimilar to
the characters depicted in
Garrison Keillor's fiction-
al Lake Wobegon where
"all the women are strong,
all the men are good-look-
ing, and all the children
are above average."
One of the things I like
most about Minnesota is
that there is a there there.
Minnesota feels like Min-
nesota, distinct from any-
place else on earth. If you
travel much, you probably
understand what I mean.
Some places feel unique
while other places feel


anything but.
As someone interested
in food, what the people
eat in a given geography is
especially fascinating to
me. When I travel, I want
to get a taste of those local
flavors. A few years ago a
friend of mine traveled to
New York City and raved
about how great the Olive
Garden was in Times
Square. As fine an estab-
lishment as Olive Garden
is, I could not imagine vis-
iting New York City only
to eat the very same food I
could have had back home
out by the mall.
A couple of decades ago
the term "foodways" be-
gan being used to describe
what people eat and why
they eat it. Regional food-
ways emerged as a means
to define these culinary
traditions in various parts
of the U.S. The Southern
Foodways Alliance housed
at the University of Mis-
sissippi has done great
work in documenting and
celebrating this region's
food history and culture.
In most of these estab-
lished and emerging food-
ways it seems to be simple
foods that best define a re-
gion and its people, pulled
pork in the Southeast,


brisket it Texas. These ba-
sic foods have been fa-
vorites for generations.
One of the foods that best
defines Minnesota is Jell-
0. The "Jell-O Salad" as
it is oven called, is a ubiq-
uitous presence at nearly
every picnic and pot luck
in this upper Midwest
State.
There are hundreds of
variations on the Jell-O
Salad and favorite recipes
can be handed down from
generation to generation
like family heirlooms.
One of my favorites is
something called "Pretzel
Salad." I'm not sure how


it got its name because
pretzels, although featured
in the recipe, are certainly
not the main ingredient.
I know Minnesotans are
not the only people who
can appreciate a good
Jell-O dish so here's the
recipe for Pretzel Salad. If
you make it for an upcom-
ing picnic or pitch in
don't be surprised if the
guy in the Vikings jersey
wants to be your new best
friend.

Pretzel Salad
2 cups coarsely crushed
pretzels
3/4 cup melted unsalted


butter
1 cup plus 3 table-
spoons sugar
1 (8oz) package cream
cheese, softened
2 cups Cool Whip
1 large package (6
ounces) strawberry fla-
vored Jell-O
2 cups boiling water
1 (10oz) boxes frozen
strawberries
Preheat oven to 400.
Mix together the pretzels,
butter, and 3 tablespoons
sugar then press into the
bottom of a 9 x 13 x 2
inch pan. Bake 8-10 min-
utes. Remove to let cool.
Next beat together the re-


maining 1 cup of sugar
and the cream cheese. Stir
in the Cool Whip then
spread this mixture over
the pretzel layer. Mix the
Jell-O, boiling water, and
strawberries together and
let set for 10 minutes.
Pour this over cheese lay-
er. Cover with plastic
wrap and chill in the re-
frigerator for at least two
hours.
