By Jeff Waters

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a
wreck last Wednesday that sent five people to
area hospitals, four with critical injuries. The
fifth was seriously hurt.
According to FHP, 26-year-old Rawl L. Smith
of Live Oak, traveling north on US 129 around
8:45 p.m. in a 2003 Chevrolet pickup, drifted
onto the right shoulder and struck the left rear of
a 1996 Plymouth van that was disabled on the
roadside.
The collision drove the van into the front end
of a 2001 Pontiac parked in front of the van on
the roadside. Bystanders 39-year-old Ariel Alva-
trez-Delz Campa, O'Brien, and 41-year-old Jeff
Stacy, Live Oak, were hit by the van as they

'Stamp Out


Hunger' food


Azalea Park First Class Early Head

Start Center gets a boost from Comcast


May 8


The National
Association of
Letter Carriers
will hold its an-
nual national
"Stamp Out
Hunger" food
drive on Satur-
day, May 8. For
city letter carri-
ers and rural car-
riers in Live Oak,
McAlpin, Well-
born, Branford, ,u
O'Brien and oth-
er county post
offices in Suwannee County, this will be the 18th year the
carriers and their customers have participated in this an-
nual event that helps stock local church food pantries
across Suwannee County. NALC member Rick McMan-
away and Postmaster Steve Tehan are coordinating the
event for the Live Oak Post Office.
Each year United Way Worldwide partners with the
National Association of Letter Carriers and brings to-
gether national and local partners to address hunger by
providing food to those most in need. It is the largest
one-day effort to combat hunger in the United States with
millions of families participating and thousands of letter
carriers, postal employees and volunteers collecting the
donations. Locally, United Way of Suwannee Valley co-
ordinates the effort with the local post offices and agen-
cies that receive the contributed food.
Live Oak letter carriers last year hauled 12,500 pounds
of food from their customers' residences to the loading
dock of the post office where they were greeted by vol-
unteers from area churches who assisted in unloading the
donated groceries and packing the items for delivery.
Love INC provides information on churches that have
food pantries. Vivid Visions, the local domestic violence
center, and Comprehensive Community Services, which
has group homes for citizens with developmental disabil-
ities, will also be among the recipients of the donated
food.
"We are asking residents to donate non-perishable food
items that include canned soup, juice, pasta, vegetables,
cereal and rice, but canned food products containing pro-
tein are always needed," Postmaster Tehan said. "These
would include canned tuna or chicken as well as canned
stews and peanut butter. Please do not include any glass
or perishable items."
The participating churches and agencies can attest the
food drive is beneficial to their services in the communi-
ty. Most people make food donations around the holidays
and tend to donate less in the summer time. With the as-
sistance of donated food from the food drive, the church-
es and agencies can save money on food expenses and
purchase additional food, personal hygiene items or help
fund other needs.
United Way of Suwannee Valley is a community im-
pact and fundraising organization which, utilizing volun-
teers on all levels, advances the common good by identi-
fying unmet community needs and seeking to alleviate
those needs through United Way of Suwannee Valley ini-
tiatives and the funding of 22 affiliated health and human
service agencies.

walk on laminate tile the acoustics sound hollow or
have a high-pitched clicking noise. LVT sounds
more solid which eliminates the need for upgraded
underlayments. LVT also is very easy to install, so
easy you may want to install it yourself. It also has
more realistic patterns and textures with clarity and
depth. An LVT tile or plank is much easier to
replace than laminate as well. The benefits seem to
go on and on. Some have lifetime warranties. We
will have more about the cost effectiveness of LVT
next week so check back next Wednesday in this

Treatment for this Lung Infection
Bronchiolitis, a type of respiratory tract infection, is a common
condition in children less than 2 years of age. The condition is
commonly caused by a virus, but may also be caused by bacteria.
Respiratory synctial virus (RSV) is the most common cause of
bronchiolitis in young children. Infection from this virus leads to
inflammation of the small airways (called bronchioles). Symptoms of
bronchiolitis include runny nose, fever, cough, and wheezing.
Symptoms generally last about one to one and a half weeks. Most
episodes are mild and resolve on their own.
Inhaled drugs called bron-chodilators are often prescribed in some
children with bronchiolitis. Albuterol (Proventil, Ventolin) and
salmeterol (Serevent) are bronchodilators. Glucocorticoids (prednisone,
prednisolone) may be prescribed, however are not routinely done so for
this purpose. Palivizumab (Synagis) is an RSV-specific humanized
monoclonal antibody that may be used for prevention of RSV in infants
at high risk for complications from RSV infection. Palivizumab is
administered by an injection during the months when RSV is most
common, typically during the winter months. Annual immunization
with influenza vaccine is also recommended for children 6 months to
18 years, and household contacts of children up to 59 months old.

Q: Why are mouth guards important for
athletes?
A: For athletes engaged in certain high-
contact sports like hockey and football,
the benefits of wearing a mouth guard are
obvious. Dental injuries can be
permanent and, in some cases,
disfiguring. In almost all cases, though,
they are costly
The American Dental Association
advocates the wearing of mouth guards
as the most effective defense against
sports-related dental injuries. They
cushion blows that might otherwise result
in chipped or broken teeth and severe
lacerations to the lips or tongue.
Additionally, the ADA notes that athletes
at all levels, organized or unorganized,
recreational or competitive, are at risk for
dental injury Even individual recreational
activities like skating and gymnastics can
expose a person to a mouth injury.
A debate is underway, also, as to whether
mouth guards play any role in minimizing
the occurrence or severity of concussion.
The jury is out, but some experts maintain
the shock absorption quality of a mouth
guard may take the sting off some blows
that could cause concussion.

THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLER



Keeping



it cool
By Jim Holmes
Well, 90-degree temperatures are back in the
weather and that means many of us are regularly
hearing a sound that is both joyful and frighten-
ing: the lumbering, rumble of our air conditioners.
We love the fact that air conditioning permits us
to live, and sometimes work, in an environment
free of the heat and humidity so typical of Florida
summers. The downside is that our monthly elec-
tric bills can easily double thanks to our AC units.
Modem air conditioning traces its origins back
to 1902 in Buffalo, New York, where inventor
Willis Carrier came up with a system to cool a
publishing house. But if Carrier is considered the
father of air conditioning then Dr. John Gorrie of
Apalachicola has to be considered its grand dad-
dy.
You see, Gorrie came up with the very first
compressor-driven artificial cooling device back
in 1842, for which he would be awarded a patent
nine years later. He created the contraption in the
hope of curing yellow fever and malaria, both of
which were common in Florida back then.
At the time, most of the medical community
thought "bad air" was responsible for many infec-
tious diseases. And since malaria and yellow fever
outbreaks were most common during heat waves,
Gorrie speculated that the hot air of summer
might be the cause. That prompted research that
eventually led the physician to design and build,
what would be the earliest ice machine. The cold
air emulating from the ice could then be circulated
by fans. (It wasn't until 1901 that research
proved yellow fever and malaria were spread by
mosquitoes.)
So why didn't we have air conditioning and
for that matter refrigerators -much earlier? Well,
first off, electricity wasn't yet around to run Gor-
rie's compressors, meaning they had to be pow-
ered by water wheels or steam. Gorrie's endeavor
to market his early ice machine also experienced a
financial setback, when his business partner died.
Then there was Frederic Tudor. His name might
not be well known today, but in the 1800s, he was
America's "Ice King." You see, Tudor came up
with the idea of harvesting ice from New Eng-
land's frozen winter ponds, packing it in wood
shavings, saw dust or rice chaff and shipping it to
distant points. And I do mean distant points: like
Cuba, Europe and believe it or not, India. Of
course, despite being insulated, huge amounts of
ice melted while being transported. For instance,
a ship bound for India started out with 180 tons of
ice. Four months later, when it arrived, only 100
tons remained. Still, the shipments to India were
said to be among Tudor's most profitable.
As you might imagine, the Ice King was less
than thrilled with Doctor Gorrie's invention and
there are indications that Tudor did everything in
his power -behind the scenes to insure that
the doctor's fledgling company failed. And fail it
did, leaving the good physician ruined financially
and personally humiliated. Gorrie died in seclu-
sion in 1855 and is buried today in an Apalachico-
la square that bares his name. There is also a mu-
seum where you can see a copy of his device.
And so there in a nutshell is the history of early
air conditioning, which today we generally take
for granted, except when the monthly utility bill
arrives. And if you are like me, that's when you
really begin to sweat!
Jim Holmes lives in Live Oak.

'Thinking green' on my knees

*

Thikin gren onm*e


Dwain Walden
It's amazing
how a single word
uttered or even a
smell, or sound
suddenly cast
upon one can trig-
ger a flashback.
The expression
"think green" did this very thing to
me this week when I read it on my
email.
Of course "think green" in this
context is all about us being more
environmentally conscious.
But as soon as that word hit by
cerebral cortex, or whatever it has
to hit to conjure up the past, I was
back down on my knees in Gene
Ulmer's tobacco patch. A couple of
us had just rolled some homemade
cigars from uncured green leaves
and everything went downhill and
sideways from there.
And when I say I was on my
knees, it wasn't because I was pray-
ing for rain or asking forgiveness
because we had swiped a couple of
watermelons the previous night. I
had smoked half of that homemade
cigar, and I was having the dry
heaves. That means I was about to
choke on my navel.
I'm not saying I didn't offer up a
prayer for deliverance while I was


down there, but I initially got into
that position because the world had
tilted drastically and I was trying
not to fall off.
Now I have no idea how green
remains my favorite color, given
that experience. My cousin was also
down on his hands and knees. I'm
just glad this was all before cell
phones with video capabilities.
And I don't know what his fa-
vorite color was or is.
But by early evening, we had
overcome and outlived our stupidity
... well, at least a great portion of it.
There were other later events that
suggested we should have drained
that bucket more thoroughly. But
I'm not sure about the statute of
limitations, so I won't go there to-
day.
To this very day, I can take you
to the very spot where this hap-
pened. I'm thinking the same fence
posts are still there ... one of which
I hugged like a long lost love, just
before I fell to my knees. That
event was so significant, I do be-
lieve I could put myself within two
feet of where I litup that homemade
cigar.
And so when I hear the expres-
sion, "think green," I give that mo-
ment in my history a quick glance,
and then I replace that imagery with


a tall glass of freshly squeezed cane
juice (also green) and that sudden
tinge of nausea is displaced.
So I learned a lesson from that
green homemade cigar. No matter
how tilted the earth may seem, you
won't fall off it.
Of course I learned lessons about
cane juice as well. One is that it can
ferment between breakfast and sup-
per and once again you can find
yourself on your hands and knees
with a great resolve to make the le-
gal drinking age somewhere around
40 or maybe even 45.
All of this said, I just wanted to
make that point about how such an
event can make one have such vivid
recall when just one tiny factor of
that episode is mentioned years lat-
er.
Now here's an idea for extracting
a lot of socially redeeming value
from this experience. What if each
time a politician made a promise,
he had to smoke a green homemade
cigar? I can guarantee you that he
would remember what he said, just
how he said it and what color socks
he was wearing that day. There's no
gray area in that green.

It's Teacher Appreciation Week, and we thought we'd mark

the occasion by letting a few local students tell us about the

educators who've most influenced them.



Every student has that one teacher that has made an impact on him or her. That teacher for me is Mrs.
Tuttle. Before, I did just enough so that I could get by. She wouldn't allow me to do that. I thought she
just did not want me to breeze by in her class. Later, I realized that she wanted to see me excel. I started
to see improvements in my grades in all of my classes. I applied what I learned from her to all of my
classes. I will never forget Mrs. Tuttle and everything that she has taught me.
- Brett Clark

While there are several teachers who have made an impact on me, one stands out in particular. Though
I only had Mrs. Tuttle during my junior year, she left quite an impression. She always encouraged me
to continue to write and explore books. If I didn't understand a question or a concept, she never
hesitated to personally explain it to me. She gave me an incredible foundation for what I hope is a
fruitful future in the world of writing. Even though I'm no longer in her class, Mrs. Tuttle continues to
be supportive and of great help.
- Vanessa Kinsey

Throughout my school career I have had many teachers who have highly
influenced me and are the basic foundation to all of my success. One such
teacher is the Suwannee Intermediate Physical Education teacher Kathy
Wood. Through the years Coach Wood has acted as my P.E. teacher, coach,
key club advisor, and friend. In each of these various roles she has
taught me many things ranging from proper sportsmanship in kickball, to
skills that allowed me to lead a group of people to successfully better
our community. Through Coach Wood, s leadership and guidance I, as well as
many others, have been inspired and changed in a positive way forever.
- Marshall Boggus

As a student at Branford High I am thoroughly blessed with an amazing faculty and staff. One member
of our outstanding staff goes by the name of Mrs. Karen Koon. She is the school Librarian and the
onsite Wonder Woman. All that Mrs. Koon does for the school is simply amazing. She aids students
who are with the EdOptions program, she conducts the 21st Century afterschool program, she helps
students with their research classes, and all while maintaining a beautiful media center. The students
here at Branford High are truly blessed to have Mrs. Koon with us.
-AnthonyA, .i,-...


A teacher who has influenced my life
positively is Mr. Darryl Cannon, a
history teacher at Branford High
school. Not only does he have a high
level of integrity, Mr. Cannon always
takes the time to listen to my problems
whenever I need it most. He supports
my desire to be unique and enlightens
my soul like chicken soup.
Jessica Landers

A teacher who has made an impact on
my life is Branford's culinary teacher,
Mrs. Dees. She always encourages her
students including myself to get their
work done. Mrs. Dees does everything
she can to help students get ready for
FCAT such as, using the gist method
for comprehending our culinary
concepts. Mrs. Dees not only cares for
the school but her students as well.
Lauren Koehler


As a Suwannee County Student I've
been influenced by many teachers, but
it was one particular teacher that really
encouraged me to never settle for
average. She knew that I had the ability
to go above and beyond what was
expected even when I felt as if I could
barely do enough to get by. Many
mornings when I would pull into the
parking lot my name would come over
the intercom informing me to report to
her class. Mrs. Audrey Marshall helped
me to realize that I should always strive
for the best and never to settle for less.
- Katherine Udell

Many people have touched my life in
Suwannee County Schools, but the one
I recognize most would be Neena
Brown at Suwannee High School. Ms.
Brown is kind, caring, and skilled as a
math teacher. I have enjoyed her
presence at school and have grown and
learned while taking her class. She not
only teaches math, but builds
relationships with her students that
could last a lifetime. It has been a
pleasure knowing her and I am proud
to know her.
- Traxis Laxton

The teacher in Suwannee County that
has touched my life is Bill Harris a.k.a
Coach Bill. He is very understandable,
motivational, loving, caring, and he has
the biggest heart ever. While I was in
my difficult times with my beloved
father, this man was always there to
check up on me. If it wasn't for him, I
don't know where I would be. I
appreciate so much the motivation he
has given me to strive on and off the
field, the things he taught me about
life, and what leadership really meant.
"Remember who you are playing for.
You, your family, and team for your
dad will always be watching and will
always be proud of you".
- Coach Bill Harris

The journey of the butterfly


The butterfly's journey from caterpillar to
cocoon to butterfly is a fitting metaphor for
the end-of-life journey. As a proverb reads,
"Just when the caterpillar thought the world
was over, it became a butterfly." Butterflies
also herald the return of spring and its renewal
of life after a winter of cold darkness and the
death of much of nature.
Those who are grieving must often struggle
to get to the place of renewed life. Each
spring, the Haven Hospice Suwannee Valley
Care Center offers a community-wide
Butterfly Memorial Service that closes with
the release of butterflies. Each grieving family

'I decided I wanted to live,' says
Live Oak's Gene Stallings

By Jenni Williams
When Haven Hospice touched base with former patient Gene
Stallings recently, he was delighted to report that his health is
stable and he feels pretty good. "I'm still kicking," he said. "Not as
high as I used to, but I'm still here." Stallings, who lives part of
the year in Live Oak, was headed back to his home in Asheville,
N.C., where he plans to have his garden ready to plant by May.
"Hospice patients sometimes do get better and occasionally they
recover," said Haven physician Dr. Michelle Boatwright, who
cared for Stallings at the Suwannee Valley Hospice Care Center in
Lake City. Boatwright experienced this firsthand when Stallings
improved and went home.
A March 2007 study of nearly 5,000 terminally ill patients
revealed some surprising news-patients in hospice care live longer
than patients who have similar conditions but are not receiving
hospice care. Published in the Journal of Pain and Symptom
Management, the study's findings challenge the notion that
hospice care hastens death.
"We have speculated for a long while that terminally ill patients
do better while in hospice care, but it hadn't been definitively
proven until this study," said Boatwright.
Although diabetic, Stallings had been in good health when he
was suddenly diagnosed with diverticulitis and hospitalized with
gastrointestinal bleeding. His doctors and nurses told his wife Peg
that his organs were shutting down, his prognosis was very poor
and he was not going to survive.
But Stallings' condition improved within days after he was
admitted to the Lake City care center in February 2007. Dr.
Boatwright adjusted his medications while the staff addressed his
personal comfort and dietary needs. At first, family and friends
continued to prepare for the end. A nephew played Stallings'
favorite music Suzy Bogguss and Chet Atkins as he slept,
and a dear friend began planning a memorial service. "They were
all that sure I was going to die," Stallings said.
But in time, he was eating, drinking and sitting up in a chair -
resuming normal functions. Healing had begun. "Everyone was so
kind and did so much for me," he said, "I decided I wanted to live.
I pulled through."
"This was highly unusual for a hospice patient," said
Boatwright, "but it has happened more than once.
"If the patient's situation changes," she added, "the focus of care
changes. There's a process of reevaluation every day. We like to
say Mr. Stallings was able to 'graduate' from Haven Hospice."
"Hospice care focuses on making the patient more comfortable,"
said Haven physician Dr. Neel Karani, "which enhances the
quality of life."
Stallings believes his own system started him back on the road
to health when the Haven staff was able to make him comfortable.
"Everyone did such a marvelous job," said Stallings' wife Peg,
who did what she could to assist the staff with his care. "We
couldn't have asked for anything better."
"I can't say enough about how nice they were; they really took
care of me," Stallings said, "and I think the world of the people at
Haven. We are strong believers in hospice care, especially Haven.
That's the best place to be."
Stallings, 78, has resumed his high quality of life still doing
everything with his wife at his side and enjoying their children,
grandchildren and great-grandchildren. "I'm feeling optimistic,"
he said. "I'm a tough old bird. If you stay around long enough,
you're gonna get old."
Boatwright hopes that Stallings' experience will be a lesson to
seek hospice care sooner. "To improve the quality of life and
possibly add precious time for patients with life-limiting
illnesses," she said, "I encourage physicians to refer qualified
patients to Haven Hospice earlier in their disease process."

The 269th makes a long-awaited return


Continued From Page 1A

Loved ones rushed to
line the street outside the
Armory waving American
flags and cheering as the
bus carrying the troops en-
tered the grounds.
"Welcome home," were
the first words Shanda
Johnson, wife of guards-
man Craig Johnson, said to
her husband as she and
nearly a dozen of their fam-
ily members gathered for
his return.
"I'm glad he's back, it's
been a year," said their 14-
year-old son Jarvis.
First Lieutenant Xavier
Rivera led the unit from the
bus and through the crowd
as they stacked in forma-
tion casting smiles toward
their family members.
After a short song and
prayer, Rivera uttered the
magical words: "269th, dis-
missed from duty," as the
lined men and woman fell
from attention.
Rivera, who had only
been married a year himself
before his deployment
raced to embrace his wife
Karin.
"Bienvenido a casa mi
amor welcome home
my love," she whispered in
his ear.
The group had originally


planned for deployment to
the horn of Africa (Dji-
bouti) to conduct drilling
operations and win over the
hearts of the people there,
but at the drop of a dime
they were given new or-
ders.
"This trend changed in
the blink of an eye as our
mission was changed liter-
ally the day we were acti-
vated," Rivera recalled.
The unit was sent to Re-
gional Command South
(RC South) and were sta-
tioned out of Kandahar Air
Field (KAF), as the first of
the Army's six well drilling
units to be sent to
Afghanistan.
Unfortunately, the unit's
drill rig, their main piece of
equipment, suffered ir-
reparable damage while on
transport from Africa to
Afghanistan.
"Our mission seemed
doomed," Rivera said.
However, the unit re-
bounded and was able as-
sist other units with various
projects, such as helping
deliver essential supplies to
outlying bases in RC South
and were tasked with con-
ducting various security
operations in and around
KAF.
"We paved the way for
army well drillers arriving


into Afghanistan and we
were vital to opening the
eyes of the military to the
need for well drilling units
in Afghanistan," Rivera
said.
Sgt. Keith Davis Jr., the
unit's only medic, said,
"the mission was great, but
it's even better to be back
home."
Since his return on Sat-
urday he has spent time
catching up with his wife
and 11-month-old son Kei-
th III.
"I now get to spend time
with him, which is great be-
cause he was born June 19,
2009, a month after we
left."
Lt. Rivera counts it a
blessing that all members
of his unit returned home
safely.
"To God be the glory for
this entire mission as He
alone kept us out of harms
way. It feels great to be part
of such an endeavor; to be
the first unit sent to do such
a specialized mission as
well drilling. This mission
just goes in line with the
honorable tradition of units
from Live Oak. The Army
could not have picked a
more perfect place to
choose a unit from to de-
ploy to conduct such a fine
mission."

O'Brien woman

escapes crash

with minor

injuries
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
An O'Brien woman es-
caped a crash with minor
injuries Thursday at the
intersection of Timber-
wolf Drive and US 90 in
Lake City at about 3 p.m.
Angela S. Cunningham,
of O'Brien, was at a stop
on Timberwolf Drive fac-
ing north to go west on 90
in a 1998 Ford SUV as the
driver of a 2005 Hyundai
approached the intersec-
tion traveling east.
Cunningham entered
the eastbound lane into the
path of a Hyundai as the
vehicle's driver slammed
on brakes to avoid colli-
sion. The Hyundai struck
the left side of the Ford, as
both vehicles came to rest
in the center of the inter-
section, side by side, fac-
ing northeast.
Neither Cunningham
nor Yvette Bal, the driver
of the Hyundai, were seri-
ously injured. Both es-
caped with only minor in-
juries.


High winds hit hard in southern Suwannee

south of (US Hwy) 27."
Thomas referred to the radar phenome-
non as a "bow echo" which, according
to the NWS, "is an arched/bowed out line
of thunderstorms, sometimes embedded
within a squall line," and associated with
enhanced ground winds. Thomas said tor-
nados are common with this kind of
weather.
She called the damage and the pattern of
the storm in the area "more along the lines
of a tornado."
Dewayne and Lucinda Lambert were in-
side their mobile home on 41st Road with
three children and one grandchild at about
9:30 p.m. when they heard what sounded
like a tornado.
"I went to the front and opened the door
when the wind all of a sudden changed, I
could feel the pressure change inside the
house," Dewayne Lambert said.
That's when he said the door slammed
shut and threw him into a recliner on the
other side of the home. Shortly after leav-
ing the living room and running into a
back bathroom, a large oak tree fell on the
home, splitting it in half at the living room.
"We're alive and that's all that matters,"
he said.
The tree destroyed the home and pinned
Lucinda Lambert's truck, which was
parked next to the tree, under it.


"We had no way to leave, because the
keys to mine were hanging on the wall that
was crushed," said Dewayne Lambert.
The family is now living in a travel trail-
er that Dewayne recently bought for his
daughter.
A tornado warning was issued for the
area at 8:39 p.m., according to Thomas. In
total, the storm lasted for several hours
and produced about six inches of rain.
Power was knocked out in the area for
13 hours or more.
Dr. Fritz M. Fountain, director of mis-
sions for Suwannee Baptist Association,
said the people he talked to that were af-
fected "were just glad there were no in-
juries."
Fountain said the SBA, the Middle
Florida Baptist Association of Madison
and the Lafayette Baptist Association
through the Southern Baptist Disaster Re-
lief helped folks where they could by
putting a tarp on a damaged roof and help-
ing clear debris from other properties.
"We felt for them," he said. "We're
home folks and we'll help no matter
what."
Thomas said "as far as we know no one
was injured, which was amazing."
Sharon Hingson of the local emergency
management center said yard debris such
as limbs and cut up trees can be taken to
the county owned mine at 6755 US Hwy
27 South in Branford.


Charity on the homefront


Continued From Page 1A

Day luncheon held at their
church, Live Oak Seventh
Day Adventist, back in
December.
"The turnout and need
was so great that we fig-
ured we'd continue doing
it on a regular basis," she
said.
"We got together and
decided to collect our
dust-catchers and wares to
sell at the flea market in
Lake City on the first Sun-
day of each month."
With the money earned,
the couple purchases the
food they need to provide
warm meals to locals the
last Sunday of each month
at the park in Live Oak.
Many folks have stepped
up to help prepare meals
and donate clothes for
those who flock to the
charity event, Lynch said.
"During March and
February we fed between
150 to 178 people," she
said. "Our community is
suffering and it's hard.
People just need help and
to know that someone
cares."
Volunteers have taken
the act of charity one step


further by locating folks
unable to physically make
it to the meals, and have
begun delivering food to
homes.
"In March, one person
discovered twenty people
who simply needed a hot
meal," Lynch said. "We
don't ask any questions.
We just want to help peo-
ple, and the need is there."
Others have donated
clothing for the feeding
event, which are then of-
fered free to families. In
May, several nurses from
the Suwannee County
Health Department volun-
teered their time by offer-
ing free blood pressure
checks to those in need,
Lynch said, and at recent
events several musicians
even volunteered their tal-
ents.
"It's been a tremendous
outpour. We're doing this
because we've been
there," said Lynch. "There
are people right here in the
United States going to bed
hungry and many are for-
getting about our own
folks. It's OK to help oth-
er countries, but we need
to help our people right
here because of this eco-


nomic situation."
JoAnn Lynch said she
and her husband have tak-
en a back seat to allow their
personal faith and the faith
of folks in the community
to shine.
"Now, we're in a posi-
tion where God is blessing
us, and as long as we can
do it, and God continues to
provide, then we will con-
tinue to do it," Lynch said.
"God has truly opened all
the doors we need to do
this."

juries.

Suwannee tennis keeps raising the bar


District






champs


By Corey Davis
corey.davis@gaflnews.com

ALACHUA-As senior in-
fielder Greg Bowers slid into
first base for the final out,
Suwannee players threw their
gloves in the air and formed a
massive dogpile.
It's been a while since
Suwannee (19-9) has had
something to cheer about.
Fourth seeded Suwannee
knocked off third seeded Fort
White 12-2 Thursday in the
District 5-3A championship
game at Santa Fe to win their
first district title since 2000.
Junior lefty Matt Penning-
ton allowed one earned run on
six hits, walked one and
struck out six to get the win.
Pennington also helped him-
self on the mound by belting a


two-run home run in the sec-
ond inning.
Greg Bowers collected a
pair of hits including a two-
run home run to cap
Suwanne's eight run fourth in-
ning.
Penningon's two-run home
run helped Suwannee pull
ahead 4-0 in the second.
However, Jonathan
Dupree's RBI single in the
bottom of the second cut the
lead to 4-1. Bryce Beach also
tried to score on Dupree's sin-
gle but was thrown out at
home by left fielder Justin
Hicks.
Suwannee blew open the
game with an eight run fourth
inning, sending 12 batters to
the plate as Jackson Brown
and Pennington each had RBI
walks. Hicks delivered a two-

Dupree singled to lead off

the baseball All Star game,

When fans attend foot-
ball games in the fall next
season, they might need a
second glance across the
field as both coaches are
likely to be unfamiliar.
From Tallahassee to
Jacksonville to
Gainesville, 26 new
coaches will be making
their debut come August.
One doesn't have to
look any further than in
our own backyard as
Suwannee's Willie Spears
began his coaching reign
on Saturday the first day
of Spring football prac-
tice.

head football coach Willie
Spears is one of 26 new
football coaches in the
area who will be roaming
the sideline. Photo: Submitted


Spears, 32, comes over from Jefferson County, where
he coached the Tigers to a district title and second round
playoff berth in his only season.
"To be a part of a winning tradition including four state
champions (would) indeed (be) an honor," Spears told
Suwannee Superintendent of Schools Jerry Scarbrough
attached to his resume.
Spears said in a letter to Suwannee selection committee
members that he "will committed to stay here and build a
program" and would "not use this job as a mere stepping
stone."
Spears hasn't moved around a lot but he and his family
"are sick of moving". He added, "I don't know why we
can't stay in one place, but that's what's been happen-
ing."
Unfortunately that's what been happening to a lot of

area coaches as well moving on to other jobs or being
let go.
In the Tallahassee area, Godby Shelton Crews re-
signed to work with the Florida Athetic Coaches As-
sociation and was replaced by assistant coach Ronnie
Cottrell.
North Florida Christian coach Tim Cokely left to
take a job in Georgia and was replaced by another

Williston rehired former coach Jamie Baker after its
last head coach Derek Chioletti bolted for Bradford
County. Baker County hired Ryan Sulkowski, Union

Replacing Pruitt at Hawthorne is former Arlington
Country Day coach James Sims. Taking over at ACD

while East Gadsden hired former Florida State great

Spring practice and as of press time, ACD named one

would be whole sports

I often thought of moving
to Hawaii. Mets and Sunday
night football games at 2
o'clock in the afternoon.
Taping a full slate of
football games on Saturday
or Sunday and being done in
time to watch them again
before dark. No wonder it
must cost so much to live
there. As sports expands I
don't think Hawaii is a place
looking for a franchise.
They got to watch the
Kentucky Derby at 1 o'clock

I'm sure the cable doesn't

April 16 in Live Oak, which cost the Bulldogs the
No. 3 seed in the tournament.
Getting hot at the right time and healthy helped
Suwannee win the tournament with wins over fifth
seeded Newberry 7-0 and top seeded and host Santa
Fe 7-3 in the semi-finals.
"We were beat up two weeks ago, but now every-
body is healthy and we are playing baseball like we
can," Suwannee head coach Shannon Jemigan told
the Lake City Reporter.
Fort White (12-11) knocked off second seeded
Williston 7-3 in the first semi-final to advance to the
championship game.
Suwannee, which made its first regional playoff
berth since 2005, hosted Mount Dora last night. If
they won, they will be home again Friday at 7 p.m.
to take on the winner of Trinity Catholic/Fort White.
Coach Jemigan is asking all fans to wear black as
the team plans to Black Out Mount Dora.

By Corey Davis

MAYO-Lafayette head coach Derek
Garland is blessed to have a very deep
pitching staff. On any given night he can
go to Lindsay O'steen, Kali Sharpe, Stacy
McClelland or Lindsey Hamlin.
When one is struggling he knows he can
count on one of the other three for help.
Case in point, in the Region I-2A quar-
terfinals against district nemesis North
Florida Christian (NFC), Garland's ace
Hamlin struggled early and had to be re-
placed in the third inning.
Garland calmly called McClelland, who
had been battling a foot injury recently
and was playing rightfield, to the mound
to help him out.
McClelland hadn't pitched in a while
due to pulled muscle in her pivot foot but
told Garland before the game she was
available if needed.


"Stacy hadn't pitched in two weeks but
she came and told me before the game she
was ready if needed," Garland said. "I'm
glad she was ready as Hamlin didn't have
her good stuff tonight."
McClelland got out of a tough jam strik-
ing out Christine Gonzalez and getting
Rapal Thompson to ground out to third
baseman Bailey Edwards.
"She wasn't able to throw her screw
ball or curve ball but she was spot on with
the fastball and changeup and kept them
off balanced," Garland said.
From that point on, McClelland coasted
retiring seven in a row and twelve of the
last 13 batters to lead Lafayette to a 6-5
come from behind win over visiting NFC.
Early on it looked like Garland would-
n't need McClelland, Hamlin (a Santa Fe
Community College signee) retired six in
a row.
After Taylor Inman grounded out to sec-
ond, Hamlin got NFC pitcher Lindsey


Bert to enduce a fly ball to right, which
McClelland laid out and dove for robbing
Bert of a potential double.
O'steen led of the first reaching first on
an error by Gonzalez at third, moved to
second on Julia Barnes grounder to to
third and advanced to third on Hamlin's
foul ball pop up to third. McClelland
walked and scored on Sharpe's RBI single
past third and error on the left fielder giv-
ing Lafayette an early 2-0 lead in the first.
Hamlin struck out the first two batters
and got a pop up to second to get out of
the second.
Cartaesha Macklin reached first on a
fielders choice to second, stole second and
third and scored on a wild pitch increasing
the lead to 3-0 after two.
Hamlin struggled in the third hitting
back-to-back batters while walking the
third to load the bases. Inman and Bert
followed with back-to-back RBI singles
up the middle, while Hannah Strickland


drew a bases loaded walk tying the game
at 3-3.
Garland had no choice but to take Ham-
lin out and bring McClelland in. Hamlin
moved to second base and Julia Barnes
moved to right taking McClelland's spot.
With the bases still loaded, McClelland
struck out Shelby Kirkland for the first
out. Chelsea Daniels line drive to first ap-
peared to hit NFC runner Strickland in the
leg as she was running to second, however
the umpire ruled the ball hit first baseman
Heidi Hendrick first, allowing two runs to
score on the play giving NFC (16-8) a 5-3
lead.
McClelland issued a walk before set-
tling down retiring the next two batters to
end the inning.
"It was tough, but I knew I could do it,"
McClelland said.
With his team now trailing, Garland

Suwannee Storm captured the YBOA Southeast Regional Basketball Championship April 23-25 in Jacksonville. Photos: Submitted


Submitted

The Suwannee Storm basketball team
traveled to Jacksonville April 23-25 to
play in the Youth Basketball of America
(YBOA) Southeast Regional Qualifer and
returned home with the Division 2 cham-
pionship.
This is the first state-sanctioned tourna-
ment the team has won since its organiza-
tion in 2007, and entitles the team to an
automatic bid in the National YBOA
Tournament. By winning the regional
qualifier the team also received a free en-
try into the tournament on behalf of the
YBOA.
Although registered as a Division 3
team, the Storm competed against Divi-
sion 2 composite teams including the St.
Johns Panthers and the Central Florida
Yellow Jackets. The Yellow Jackets were
ranked fifth in the state and also defeated
the Storm in pool play during last years
YBOA state tournament.
The Storm soundly defeated the Pan-
thers 68-39 in the opening game. Scor-
ing was led by Marcus Lane (16), DeAn-
gelo Ross (12), DeAndre Devore (10),
and Jimmie Taylor (10). Devore also
pulled down ten rebounds and had three
assists, while Taylor had seven rebounds
and eleven assists. DeAngelo Ross hit a
crowd-pleasing "buzzer beater" from past
halfcourt to conclude the game.
The Storm's greatest challenge was
beating the Yellow Jackets, who narrowly
defeated Suwannee 62-58 in their first
pool game. Poor rebounding, missed
layups and free throws all contributed to
the loss. Game scoring leaders were Tay-
lor (20), DeAngelo Ross (14), and Tru-
mane Ross (11).
The championship game was held at the
Jacksonville Sports Center and Ice Com-
plex, where Suwannee once again faced
the Yellow Jackets.
The game was very close and had sev-
eral lead changes with a score of 20-19
(1st), 29-31 (half), and 41-41 going into
the fourth quarter.
The Yellow Jackets had one sharpshoot-
er who was effective from all ranges, and
they tried different defenses but the game
stayed close. With 2:08 left the Storm
pulled up by two points 52-50. Taylor
made two free throws and Marcus Lane
hit a critical three-point shot at 1:15 to
bring the score to 59-53.
The Yellow Jackets scored one more
time to reach 55, but a combination of de-
fensive rebounds by Taylor and Jarvis
George; free throws by Taylor, Ross and
Lane; and defensive pressure by the
Storm led the team to a final score of 63-
55 and their first regional victory.
Scoring leaders in the championship
game were Taylor (24), Lane (16), and
Trumane Ross (8). Team rebounding was
lead by Trumane Ross (10), Devore (7),
George (6), and Taylor (5). Congratula-
tions Storm.

Free Fridays presents HuDost on May 14


GAINESVILLE HuDost, currently on U.S. tour, is an
experimental indie world rock group whose core musi-
cians are singer/songwriters Moksha Sommer from Mon-
treal (vocals, harmonium) and Jemal Wade Hines from
New York (guitars, vocals, percussion). Bringing a strong
musically trained background to the group, Sommer has
traveled the globe, studying no less than 12 distinctive
vocal styles from around the world and, with her clear,
soaring voice, Sommer has been described as "a cross
between a more overtly sultry Paula Carino and a less


boisterous Juliana Nash." Jemal Wade Hines, formerly of
Gainesville, has organized a group of local musicians to
join HuDost in creating a concert especially for the Free
Friday series. The band members joining them at the Bo
Diddley Community Plaza concert include Dan Walters
on bass and keys, George Tortorelli on flutes, Stephanie
Heidemann on vocals, Julian Douglas on percussion, Bil-
ly Dean on drums and Michael Schlein on keyboards.
The Free Fridays concert is presented by the City of
Gainesville Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultur-


Workplace friendships can distract yet


provide valuable info for employees


GAINESVILLE It pays
to keep employees who are
good friends side by side in
the workplace, suggests a
University of Florida study
that finds pals often help
each other by working
closely on a job but can re-
duce productivity if they la-
bor in separate departments.
Further complicating the
generally accepted idea that
friendships are good for
work is that too much em-
pathy and emotion between
friends can reduce their per-
formance, said Jessica
Methot, who did the study
for her doctoral dissertation
in management at UF.
"Although previous re-
search has suggested work-
place friendships are posi-
tive because they raise em-
ployees' morale, we found a
dark side to these relation-
ships," she said. "When
friendships involve some-
one who works outside
your department or per-
forms different kinds of
tasks and is not able to help
you with your job, they are
more of a distraction."
Too often these employ-
ees chat about non-office
related topics with chums,
interfering with their ability
to focus on their duties and
interrupting the flow of
work, Methot said. Co-


workers feel obligated to
stop what they are doing to
help their friends when
they have a question,
knowing their friends
would do the same for
them, she said.
While other studies find
that having office buddies
boosts job satisfaction, they


have not examined its ef-
fects on work performance,
said Methot, who will be-
come a professor at Rutgers
University when she gradu-
ates.
The implications of
workplace friendships are
important in today's tough
economy with businesses


that have job openings in-
creasingly relying on refer-
rals from employees, who
suggest people they know
and like, Methot said. Such
hires have better retention
rates, prompting some em-
ployers to offer rewards to

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.

Workplace friendships


can distract yet provide


valuable info for employees


Continued From Page 3

staff members who make referrals, she said.
"Referrals are a very common and inexpensive way for
employers to hire people because they don't have to go
through the entire recruitment and selection process," she
said.
Methot said good friends give each other and their em-
ployers a boost on the job through familiarity and freely
sharing information that lead to jobs well done.
"Friends are much more open than other co-workers
about providing each other with deep and valuable infor-
mation, which can make a difference in how well they do
their jobs," she said. "This is especially important in the
present economic downturn with people being laid off and
supervisors having less time to spend with their employ-
ees."
Methot, who owns and operates several restaurants with
her husband, said she became intrigued with the topic after
noticing that workplace friendships were a good influence
on some people and not others. She surveyed 182 employ-
ees at three clothing stores and six restaurants in North
Florida about the effects of these friendships. A month lat-
er she surveyed each of the employees' supervisors, who
rated their job performance.
While it is more productive to keep friends in the same
department, Methot also learned that personal closeness
can backfire if employees become too emotional and dis-
tracted on the job. "This finding is quite interesting be-
cause it suggests that having co-workers who provide em-
pathy and boost one's spirits may actually detract from the
ability to do the job," she said.
The emotional distress that went along with managing
friendships in a professional setting even though they of-
fer some benefits makes it more difficult for employees
to focus on their work. "We found these relationships
cause a certain amount of exhaustion to maintain," she
said. "If you have a disagreement with a friend, it means a
lot more to you than having a disagreement with someone
you don't know as well."
Particularly problematical is reports of good news, such
as raises and promotions, which cause hard feelings if co-
workers feel they are passed over in favor of friends,
Methot said. "When someone else is rewarded who does
the same type of work, you want to be happy for them, but
there is likely to be tension," she said.
American businesses have shifted their emphasis from
independent tasks to group-based work, with eight out of
10 U.S. organizations that employ 100 people or more us-
ing teams, Methot said. Managers try to build employee
cohesion in this new work design by taking steps like cre-
ating informal break rooms and scheduling group picnics,
she said.
These results suggest that organizations should focus on
practices that promote friendship among co-workers who
interact for work-related purposes, Methot said.
Despite the risks of these social connections, of a sub-
sample of 26 survey respondents Methot personally inter-
viewed, 23 people said such friendships were worth hav-
ing.
With work's dominance in people's lives, it's not sur-
prising how influential these relationships have become,
Methot said. "Often times you end up spending more time
with your co-worker than you do your own family," she
said.

THE


QUiEEN)


Jill Cataldo saves hundreds on groceries by making the most

of the common coupon. You can, too. Here's how.

Boolah, Boolah, BOGO, BOGO!


By
Jill Cataldo






Buy One, Get One Free sales are hot
topics with readers lately. Here are two
questions regarding the specifics of
saving even more on these great sales.

Q: "My store recently had a sale on jars
of nuts. They were priced at $3.50, Buy
One, Get One Free. Additionally, each jar
had a peel-off coupon worth $1.50. I
bought two jars and used one coupon,
paying $2 for two. Could I have used
both $1.50 coupons, paying only 50 cents
for the pair?"

Q: "I have a question regarding BOGO
offers. Although I had two identical $1.50
coupons, I was only allowed to use one of
them. I was told that I could use a coupon
for the item I 'bought' but not for the item
the store was giving to me 'free.' They

said that acceptance of a coupon for the
'free' item would be coupon fraud. Is this
correct?"

BOGO sales are a great way to take home
double the product for half the price! But
store policies do vary from chain to chain
regarding the ways they handle coupons
on BOGO products.

Most supermarkets handle BOGO sales
one of two ways. In the first, the register
scans the first item at full price and the
second item is free. If I buy two jars of
nuts at $3.50, BOGO, the receipt will
show two jars, one with a $3.50 price and
the other with a $0.00 price.

Other supermarkets "split" a BOGO sale,
ringing two products at half price. In this
case, the receipt will show two jars of
nuts, each priced at $1.75.

Some stores will allow shoppers to use
two coupons during a BOGO sale, but
some will not. Typically, a store will
address this issue in its coupon policy. In
my area, our two largest supermarkets
handle these BOGO sales differently. At
both supermarkets, the first item rings up
at $3.50, the second at $0.00. However,
the first supermarket allows shoppers to

use a coupon on each item and the second
does not. Guess where I like to shop more
often? With regard to the question on
fraud, it's definitely not coupon fraud for
a store to accept a coupon on a "free"
item. Manufacturer coupons are limited
to one "per item purchased;" from a legal
standpoint, you are still purchasing the
"free" item.

It's also important to note that a store that
accepts two coupons on a BOGO sale
loses nothing financially. With our nut
example, the store still receives the full
$3.50 price of the two jars of nuts but
with two $1.50 coupons, I pay just 50
cents for both. The manufacturer
reimburses the other $3 to the store. This
truly is one of those circumstances where
you must find out how your store BOGOs
and coupons, and you'll be able to better
plan future shopping trips.

With a supermarket that "splits" BOGO
sales into two half-price products, you'll
absolutely be able to use a coupon on
each item. These sales aren't truly "Buy
One, Get One Free sales" as much as they
are "Buy two, each at half price" sales.
Continuing with our nut sale, if we buy
two jars at $1.75 each, there would be no
reason at all that we couldn't use a $1.50
coupon on each. The price of each jar
isn't really contingent on buying two.

That's another important point to keep in
mind. If your store does, indeed, price
BOGO sales as two half-priced products,
you can enjoy another little Super-
Couponing trick: buy just one of the
products. If you only happened to have
one $1.50 coupon and each jar is $1.75,
you wouldn't be tied to buying two to get
that price. Buy one for 25 cents and enioy
saving almost 70 percent on this item!

fore the fireworks.
