night to keep political
signs from being placed

"This is the first time
that I can recall election
signs placed on city

fellow councilmen.
Hale said political
signs on city property
are misleading to the
public because "when
people see the signs on

SHS Environmental Club members and students prepare to plant flowers in the SHS courtyard in preparation for Spring. -Courtesy photo


The Suwannee High School
Environmental Club has been busy
this spring. On Earth Day the club
held an Environmental Film Festival
featuring films on endangered species
by the club's own Rhett Barker, a
sophomore at SHS. The club then
used the proceeds from the film
festival to purchase native flowers and
shrubs for a xeriscaping project in the
SHS courtyard.
Xeriscaping is a type of gardening
or waste-efficient landscaping
technique, utilizing 'unthirsty' native
plants and drought tolerant exotics.
The club was advised and helped by
parent Barbara Barker. Ed Hendry,
owner of Suwannee Valley Tire in
Jasper, also helped the club with the
garden.
This very successful project made
possible in part by Nobles Greenhouse
& Nursery, which gave the club a
discount and provided the invaluable
expertise of Dan Gerencser, who
helped the students choose plants and
design the garden. The club received a
generous donation from
Superintendent Jerry Scarborough and
plans are to add to the garden and
work on building a rain barrel
irrigation system to help water it.

job," said Lee. "I've worked
with him pretty much my whole
life, both (in Lake City) and
years ago when we were both
worked in Live Oak. We have a
lot of customers that praise him
and give great compliments
about his service. He's just
always friendly, polite and nice

very least.
Kelly Mathis, the attorney for Allied Veter-
ans number 42, a local Internet caf6, said the
business is operating within the law.
"The activities of Allied Veterans are con-
ducted correctly and therefore comply with
Florida law," said Mathis by email. "They
(caf6s) are illegal only if not conducted cor-
rectly or if there is an attempt to disguise an
illegitimate operation as a lawful game pro-
motion or drawing by chance."
A ruling by Florida Attorney General Bill
McCollum leaves it up to local authorities to
determine whether any given caf6 crosses the
line.
Det. Sgt. Ron Shaw of the Live Oak Police
Department is on the case locally.
"So far we've been able to determine their
operations as being questionable," Shaw said.
"If they're legal, they're borderline legal."
The Internet caf6s work like this: The busi-
ness sells either a long distance phone card or
Internet time to use its computers to access
the Internet. For every penny you spend, you
get 100 points, or $1 to play a slot machine
type game on the computer. No purchase is
necessary, so if you walk in off the street and
ask, you automatically get 100 points to play.
You don't have to play, either; some people
just buy the long distance phone card or the
Internet time to access the Web.
"If they're operating correctly it's basically
a sweepstakes, in the sense that you can't
charge someone a chance to enter a sweep-
stakes. People feel like it's kind of fun," said
Florida Department of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Communications Director
Terry McElroy. "It's basically just an elec-
tronic ticket and an amusing way to find out
whether the ticket you got is a winner or not."


He said Internet caf6s started popping up in
Panama City about two years ago and "have
been proliferating around the state since. It's
just an ingenious way to play."
One business owner compared the sweep-
stakes to the McDonald's Monopoly game.
"Each person can get a dollar a day," said
Donnie Gipson, manager of Gambo's Inter-
net Caf6 (Paradise Cove), located near Wal-
Mart in Live Oak.
"We sell long distance phone cards," he
said. "When you purchase phone time we
give you a card and we reward you with a
sweepstakes on a tier basis. It depends on
how much you want to put on the card. But
there is no purchase necessary to play the
game. When they leave the store, they still
have their phone card."
Players can also take their sweepstakes
points and cash them in immediately to see if
they win ;iiliii.-. kind of like a "Quick
Play" in the state lottery. Or they can play the
games on the computer to try to win more
money, which they can redeem at the register
for cash.
Not everyone who frequents the businesses
comes for the games.
Rob Thon said he uses the Internet every-
day at Internet Royale Cafe and has only
played the sweepstakes once or twice.
"I'm here like, literally every day," he said.
"I'm waiting for my Internet to get hooked up
so this is where I go for now. It saves me a lot
of time."
Pat DeRyke sat at a computer with $60
worth of Internet time to try her hand at
Lucky Duck Loot recently. DeRyke spins to
see if she can line up images of fruit, money
symbols, lucky 7s and other images.
"I come every other night or so," she said.
"It's fun, of course I lose money but one time
I won $300 in here. Now, I'm about to play

soccer under their mother
while at SHS.
With a bit of prodding
and an unbreakable com-
mitment to her upcoming
swimmers, Wood
promised to continue
coaching her current pro-
t6g6s until they all walked
the stage at graduation,
and that time has come.
T.J. Vickers, a graduat-
ing senior and a member
of the SHS swim team,
said he is honored that
Wood kept her promise.
He ended the season with
a guaranteed spot on a Di-
vision 1 swim team, be-
coming the first of Wood's
swimmers to achieve that
feat.
"Not only has coach
Wood been my swim
coach for the past four
years of high school, but I
worked for her the last
four summers as a life-
guard, and she has been


like a mom to me," said
the 18-year-old, who has
known Wood his entire
life.
He and teammates were
the reason Wood decided
to prolong her retirement.
"She was going to retire
last year, but a couple of
my friends and I con-
vinced her to graduate
with us, so to speak,"
Vickers said. "I'm glad
she stayed because a few
days ago Florida Atlantic
University called me and
told me I was on the roster
for next year, and I know
the reason that happened
is because of coach
Wood."
At the beginning of the
school year, students
knew this would be
Wood's final year, so they
decided to bid her farewell
in a huge way.
A number of them in-
cluding Vickers, Brad
Scott, Marshall Boggus,

at the conclusion of their
season. They then got per-
mission from Wood's hus-
band, Jon, to erect a mas-
sive "Thank You" sign in
the couple's front yard.
"When she arrived home
and saw the sign, she
called my house crying
and thanking my team-
mates and I," said Vickers.
That will be a lasting
memory that both Wood
and her student-athletes
share for a lifetime.

Internet Royale Caf6 on US 90 East, is also
equipped with an indoor smoking room for
those that want to have a cigarette while they
play.
"It's just so entertaining," said one player
who didn't want to be identified. "It's really
relaxing and it does get your mind off the
problems out there. I started with $20 and am
up to $62."
The manager of Internet Royale Caf6 said
most people "don't know about us and a lot
that do think it's illegal."
She said the caf6 operates as a profit and
non-profit business. "We give 10 percent off
the top" to Shriners Hospital.
Allied Veterans is a non-profit whose pro-
ceeds, according to its Web site, "directly
benefit VA hospitals, VA clinics, and other
non-profit groups, primarily first responder
organizations, that Allied Veterans of the
World, Inc. & Affiliates support."
Still, Shaw said his office will continue its
investigation to determine whether the busi-
nesses are operating legally.
"Now it's just a question of law," he said.
"We need to get a ruling from the Attorney
General's Office as to what needs to be
done."
He said that according to law, the business-
es don't have to register prize money under
$5,000, which, he says, leaves questions as to
where the money is going. "If they keep it un-
der $5,000, where's the accountability?" he
asked. "There is none."

education at Suwannee In-
termediate School.
"I love going to work
every day with the 4th and
5th graders. I plan to con-
tinue doing it for a number
of years."
Wood considers this pe-
riod in her life a fresh tran-
sitional stage.
"I will dedicate my time
to taking care of myself
and my husband Jon (who
works at the Suwannee
River Water Management
District). I recently turned
50, and it's time to do
something for me, espe-
cially now that we have an
empty nest."


The decision to end her
coaching career at SHS
was not the only change
that came about for Wood
this year.
She also dropped 111
pounds on a renewed fit-
ness plan and is rocking a
new hairdo.
"I feel fantastic. I feel
great," she said.
To all of her students, all
of her children both bio-
logical and those she has
taken under her wings, she
said, "Continue to pursue
your dreams. Take every-
thing you have learned in
athletics and apply that to
your life and college. I
love you all."

River


Race


set for


May 22
In the fall of 2008, a
joint meeting of Kiwanis,
Rotary, Lions and Altrusa
clubs was held. The reason
for the meeting was to
have an open discussion
about the community and
its needs. At that meeting a
fundraiser was suggested
to raise monies for the
clubs so they could en-
hance their service work in
joint fashion.
From this meeting came
the idea for the Great
Suwannee River Race. The
race, under the leadership
of race director John Hill
and his team of Kiwanians
and Rotarians, has come to
fruition through hard work
and dedication to the com-
munity we serve.
The inaugural Great
Suwannee River Race will
be held May 22 along the
Suwannee River. A raft
race will be held from Lit-
tle River Springs to Ivey
Park, while a canoe/kayak
race will be held from
Royal Springs to Ivey
Park.
Entry fee is $25 per ves-
sel.
Race brochures are
available at the Suwannee
Democrat. For more infor-
mation go to www.Suwan-
neeRiverRace.com.

OUR VIEW

Halfway



there

Some folks thought it grandstanding
three years back when County Com-
missioner Jesse Caruthers said the
"free" boat ramp at Lake Louise
would end up costing local taxpayers
upwards of a million dollars.
If commissioners follow through on
the latest proposal to come before
them, we'll be nearly halfway there.
Sandra Grinnell, the former county
code enforcement officer who donat-
ed three-plus acres for a public ramp
and park on the lake once owned by
her father, now wants the county to
buy her remaining 20 acres there. She
argues the county hasn't built an ac-
cess road to that parcel, part of the
deal for the 3-acre donation. County
attorney Hal Airth says we certainly
have kept our end of the bargain.
Grinnell told commissioners that se-
rious health problems spurred her to
press the issue.
Our sympathies are with her; we'll
keep her in our prayers. But it still is-
n't clear why we should have to fork
over $300,000 the latest asking
price for land that's of no use to us.
County records show we've already
spent more than $50,000 on the per-
mitting process for this project, with
plenty more to come. That's fine. No-
body ever thought the boat ramp and
park would literally be "free." (No
matter how much in the way of gov-
ernment funding we've been
promised to offset costs.)
In any case, we've got better ways
to spend our money.
"If you can't give raises to Suwan-
nee County employees or put more
ambulances on the street, why would
you buy 20 acres we don't need?"
Commissioner Ivie Fowler asked re-
cently.
We second that thought in full.

the grand sum of over 300k, and that comes to about
100k per certified Luraville Volunteer. Now little old
Dowling Park wants some of the pork, and all of this is
being sirred-up by the County Fire Chief and a one time

I thought the purpose of the road graders was to make
the roads smooth and passable. Lately, I don't think
they been doing that. They been dragging a bunch of
dirt out of the ditches throwing up there, going down

done all the washboard bumps and all the ruts are still

clean up the neighborhoods?
Which one is going to ask for adoption of the Inter-

Which one is going to pledge to go after every state

Which one is going to pledge to have all the board

Suwannee County Prop-

Jenkins was the guest
speaker at the Branford
Rotary Club on Tuesday.
He has been in office for
37 years and will serve 40
years at the expiration of
this term. He has been
elected 10 times. He said,
"You all may retire me, but
I've never said I'd retire."
He talked about real estate
values, property appraisals
and market values. He
stated, "Real estate values
in the early 80s suffered a
downward trend, but not as
low as 2006. You can buy
a home now cheaper than
you can buy a lot and

Sl baseball radar, dunking booth, balloon dart, and pie toss. They also sold food and snow
cones. They had booths that informed students about nutrition, health and wellness, as
well as cancers related to smoking and skin cancer. The Mini Relay raised around
$1,000.
This was one of the many events that Team Buccaneer participated in order to
raise money for the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society
uses this money to help cancer patients and to help find a cure for many
kinds of cancer.
S This year Mrs. Kathy Smith, Branford High's guidance counselor,
walked the survivor's lap as she has recently won the battle against
breast cancer. This is just one of the many events that Team Bucca-
neer participates in. The adult coordinator for Team Buccaneer is Lin-
Sda Lynch. Other adult sponsors include Mrs. Stacy Young and Mrs. Ju-

Food for Thought

To Love Jesus, Is To Love His Truth
Many today will claim to "Love Jesus." But,
Jesus said, "If you love me, keep my
commandments." [Jn. 14:15]
To love Jesus we must -
1) Be Students Of The Bible: We are to search
the Scriptures [Jn. 5:39]. We should desire that
only the truth be taught [Acts 17:11]. We should
also understand these Scriptures are inspired by
God [II Tim. 3:16-17].
2) Be Obedient To The Truth: We know the
"Truth will set us free." [Jn. 8:30-32]. This truth
may also differ from prior teachings or even
beliefs [Matt. 15:9]. Jesus promises us that one is
sanctified by the truth [Jn. 17:17].
3) Live By The Truth: As a Christian we are to
"Grow in knowledge" [II Pet. 3:18, Heb. 5:12-
14]. When we live by the truth we understand we
are in a race [Heb. 12:1-2].
4) Stand For The Truth: We should not fear
men [Matt. 10:28]. Our goal will be to seek the
praise of God and not men [Jn. 12:42-43]. This
will mean we are "steadfast" [I Cor. 15:58]. For
the one who is stands for the truth a "Crown"
awaits them for their faithfulness [Rev. 2:10, II
Tim. 4:8].

the next 20 years. The
market is not there like it
used to be. In 2000 we had

Mayo factory makes

highly-specialized

military munitions

Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.Iivingston@gaflnews.com

MAYO Two workers were burned at a
Mayo factory Friday morning, one be-
lieved seriously, when a military device
manufactured at the plant accidentally
detonated, according to Lafayette County
Emergency Management Director Alton
Scott.
Further information, including the in-
jured workers' names, has not been re-
leased.
One was believed treated at Shands
Live Oak then transferred to Shands UF.
Bulova Technologies Ordnance Sys-


teams, located off CR 347, is described on
the company Web site as a "load, assem-
bly, and pack facility specializing in
fuzes, safe and arming devices and explo-
sive simulators."
The company "produces a variety of
pyrotechnic devices, ammunition and oth-
er energetic materials for the U. S. Gov-
ernment and other Allied Governments
throughout the world," the Web site said.
Workers at the plant fill and cap a de-
vice "as small as a lipstick container,"
said Scott.
It was during the capping procedure
that one of the devices detonated, spark-
ing a flash fire and a secondary detona-
tion, according to Scott.
The incident reportedly occurred short-
ly after 6 a.m.
The Lafayette County Sheriff's Office,
fire department and Office of Emergency
Management responded.

comprehensive plan. They
must be "consistent" with
the Comprehensive Plan,
and "shall contain specific
and detailed provisions
necessary or desirable to
implement the adopted
Comprehensive Plan".
The Florida Statutes fur-
ther this directive by giving
minimum requirements for
all land use regulations.
The eight minimum crite-
ria are: (1) Regulate the
subdivision of land; (2)
Regulate the use of land
and water...and ensure the
compatibility of adjacent
uses and provide for open
space; (3) Provide for pro-
tection of potable water
well-fields; (4) Regulate
areas subject to seasonal
and periodic flooding and
provide for drainage and
stormwater management;
(5) Ensure the protection
of environmentally sensi-
tive lands; (6) Regulate
signage; (7) Provide that
public facilities and ser-
vices meet or exceed the
standards established...and


are available when needed
for the development; and
(8) Ensure safe and conve-
nient onsite traffic flow,
considering needed vehi-
cle parking.
Our first set of regula-
tions for Live Oak, in re-
sponse to the statutory
mandate, was adopted in
1985 and again in 1992.
Because many smaller
cities had no planning staff
at that time, the state made
provisions for regional of-
fices to prepare these doc-
uments. The end result was
"one size fits all" versions
that did not take into ac-
count the goals and objec-
tives sought for each indi-
vidual municipality.
To build on this general
foundation, cities can then
incorporate additional cri-
teria as deemed necessary
or desired. That way,
towns and cities that are
more rural or historical in
nature can guide and direct
land uses to preserve or
protect certain characteris-
tics of the community. In
larger communities where
this 'flavor' has been lost,


other various criteria can
be implemented, depend-
ing on the end result that is
sought.
The key to being suc-
cessful is that implementa-
tion is proactive rather
than reactive, in that we, as
a community and elected
body, unify and decide be-
forehand which qualities
and attributes about Live
Oak we want to promote
and preserve, thus achiev-
ing an aura and semblance
which is not only satisfy-
ing to our citizens, but also
which serves to attract new
residents and businesses
seeking to be part of a
community of caliber and
excellence.
My office is always
welcoming to suggestions
and ideas on how to
achieve this and more in-
formation can be found on
the city Web site:
www.cityofliveoak.org -
click City Departments
and then Planning, Zon-
ing, Development and
CRA. Remember, to have
a great city you must
"plan for it."

Street in Live Oak. After purchasing bever-
ages they began walking home on 6th
Street," he said.
Shaw said as they neared the intersection
at Taylor Avenue at about 9:45 p.m., four
African American suspects, all dressed in
black, approached them and demanded
money.
"The victims stated they remember see-
ing the suspects at the S&M store when
they were leaving," said Shaw. "As they de-
manded money, one suspect punched one
victim in the nose."
Shaw said another suspect then took the
victim's wallet from his pocket.
Shaw said the second victim ran from the
area and threw his wallet into some bushes


on the side of the road.
"That victim was able to elude the sus-
pects," he said. "Officers later found his
wallet where he said he threw it and noth-
ing was reported missing."
Shaw said an undetermined amount of
cash was taken from the first victim when
they stole his wallet, which has not been re-
covered.
Four home invasion robberies have oc-
curred within the city since mid-April.
Shaw said this crime and the others are con-
sidered hate crimes because they targeted
the Hispanic community.
The LOPD reports there are similarities
in all of the robberies and suspects the same
group is responsible for all the crimes.
Anyone with information is asked to call
the LOPD at 386-362-7463 or Crime Stop-
pers at 386-208-8477.


Fire assessments likely

to remain unchanged

"I don't think we fund it
enough to give a service
that the public needs," he
said. Fowler gave an ex-
ample of a Suwannee
County family that had to
wait on an ambulance to
pick up a deceased family
member. "A person who
died had to wait to be
picked up because all the
ambulances were tied up,"
he said.
Still, Wainwright made
it clear that although the
fire budget is currently be-
ing funded by general
funds due to lack of as-
sessment revenue "there's
nothing that denies resi-


dents what they need."
Commissioners voted 4-
1 to approve the tentative
rate of $30.02 per residen-
tial dwelling. Non-resi-
dential is $.0732 per
square foot up to 40,000.
Land is assessed at $12.44
per parcel for 160 acres or
less. More than 160 acres
are assessed at .0953 per
acre.
The assessment rate
should be adopted later
this year during the budget
process.

Regional marketing
group approved
Commissioners ap-
proved a proposal to form
Florida's Suwannee River


Valley Marketing Group.
The group will be a mar-
keting partnership among
Columbia, Hamilton and
Suwannee counties that
will be another way to at-
tract business, local busi-
nessman Charles Thomas
said. He said Columbia
and Hamilton counties
are already on board and
have agreed to their share
of the $50,000 cost. Co-
lumbia would supply
$40,000, Hamilton
$4,000 and Suwannee
$6,000. Commissioners
had been concerned about
some of the language in
the agreement and wanted
clarification before grant-
ing approval.

molested her.
Bates went on to say
that "The victim said she
was told by the defen-
dant not to tell her mom-
my about this incident,
and he would give her a
treasure chest of toys."
Bates said Thomas
and the victim's parents
had known each other
for about two years.
Thomas was arrested
Tuesday and transported
to the Suwannee County
Jail where he remained
as of Thursday morning.

to exactly what he meant
by "city property."
"Any city property oth-
er than street rights-of-
way," he said. "I propose
a motion that political
signs that after July of this
year not be placed upon
city property other than
street rights-of-way."
Bennie Thomas sec-
onded the motion.
Sellers said the city
needs to address the is-
sues in a city ordinance
and "make a distinction
on what's public property
inside the city limits but
that is not city owned."
City Development
Manager George Curtis
recommended an amend-
ment to the Land Devel-
opment Regulations to


specify where political
signs are allowed in the
city.
City Attorney Erny
Sellers still questioned the
wording.
"You would violate
somebody's freedom of
speech if you say no mo-
bile signs," he said.
"What happens if some-
one has a bumper sticker
on a car supporting a can-
didate and you say they
can't park on city proper-
ty."
Live Oak Mayor Sonny
Nobles, who carries a mo-
bile sign in the back of a
private pick-up truck, said
"if my signs keep disap-
pearing I wouldn't have
to worry about it."
The measure to have
Curtis amend the LDRs
passed 5-0.

Dear Parents:
We are nearing the end of another school year. This time of the year brings about a lot of emotions from our high school students. Freshmen
will no longer be the low men on the totem pole, sophomores will inch closer to senior year, juniors will become the top dogs and seniors are
transitioning to that next level. The memories that are made during high school are truly meant to be savored. We, the members of the
Suwannee County Drug Free Coalition, want these high school memories to not only be cherished but safe also.
End of the school year events are upon us and parents, we need your help to keep our children safe.
Preparing for prom is a time honored tradition. The right date, the right hairdo and of course, the right dress are all important! In preparing
your children for prom, make sure that you prepare them to be safe on prom night.
It is important that while we are helping our children get the right look for prom that we keep them mindful of these facts: Alcohol-related
crashes are the leading cause of death in this country. Teenagers die every year from alcohol poisoning. Underage drinking is against the law.
As parents and authority figures, it is imperative that we drive this fact home to our children.
House parties are popular, but did you know that it is illegal to give anyone, even your own child, under the age of 21 an alcoholic
beverage? Even if you have the permission of the other children's parents and it is served in your own home it is still illegal. Trust me I do
not want to preach. I am simply giving you the facts.
For the past several years I have had the privilege to help chaperone the After Prom Party that has been held at Melody Christian's
multipurpose building. The fun starts immediately following Suwannee High School's prom. Coincidentally, Branford High's prom is the
same night also. The prizes that are given out are phenomenal! The DJ plays what the kids like to listen to. Free tasty food is available. The
building and parking lot is secure. The only catch is the students must present their prom tickets to get in.
It is an awesome experience to help out with this wholesome activity for our children. As a parent of soon-to-be prom goers, I will
definitely allow my teens to come to the after party. If you cannot tell, I am a big fan of the After Prom Party!
I know that I am not alone when I say that I do not take our children's safety lightly. Parents, it is up to us to make this prom a safe and
memorable prom.
I look forward to seeing your prom bound children at the After Prom Party this Saturday, May 15 where a good time will be had by all!
Sincerely and thankfully,
Carla F. Blalock, proud parent and Suwannee County Drug-Free Coalition Chair

Two weeks into spring football prac-
tice, football fans will soon get their first
look at area high school football teams.
Suwannee and Branford both will
have their Green and White and Orange
and Blue games May 20 at 6 p.m. at

GAINESVILLE-If area athletic
directors and coaches have their
way, their athletic program's will
have an easier path to the state Fi-
nal Four.
From the Panhandle to the
Suwannee Valley, small school
coaches are sick and tired of having
to deal with private schools which
dominate their sports, despite hav-
ing no enrollment boundaries.
For a number of years, there has
been a growing concern among
public and private school members
of the Florida High School Athletic
Association, regarding the issues
of: attendance boundaries, open en-
rollment, foreign student eligibility
requirements and guidelines, and
the potential for illegal recruiting of
student-athletes.
Several schools from Pensacola
to Miami, formed an Urban/Rural
committee to help combat this
problem with the help from the
FHSAA.
The committee met with the FH-
SAA last week and recommended
their proposals. Their mission is
gather information and suggestions,
while meeting with constituents
throughout the state of Florida,
about the problems and potential
solutions of creating a more fair
and equitable system of competi-
tion for interscholastic athletics.

Golfers


gone


crazy


From the

sideline
By Corey Davis

Two days ago, I told you
about the impressive ac-
complishment of sopho-
more golfer Grant Why-
bark and his decision to
purposely tank a shot to let
senior Seth Doran move on
to the national tournament
(see Wednesdays column).
Unfortunately for every-
one of those situations,
there are plenty of bad ex-
amples as well.
According to Ya-
hooSports.com., Notre
Dame female senior golfer
Annie Brophy, playing in
Saturday's NCAA Central
Regional, got off to an
amazing start at the diffi-
cult Otter Creek Golf
Course shooting an aston-
ishing 30 on the front nine,
including five birdies and
an eagle.
Well it at least appeared
that way, had it actually
happened.
Part of the mystique of
golf is the honor code the
golfers are given by allow-
ing to score their own
rounds.
You see it turns out that
while Brophy was keeping
an accurate score on her
own card, she was flat-out
making up scores for vol-
unteers to post as she went
along.
Brophy thought it would
be funny to make up her
own scores as she went
along not realizing the
consequences of her ac-
tions.
Little did she know her
apparent low score was
keeping Notre Dame alive
in the tournament.
NCAA rules officials
caught up with Brophy on
the 11th hole to keep an
eye on her-and what they
saw confirmed their suspi-
cions that something was-
n't right.
While under NCAA su-
pervision, Brophy began to
show her true playing abili-
ty on the back nine report-
ing scores of quadruple bo-
gey, triple bogey and a bo-
gey on holes 10-12. In oth-
er words she went from
playing like a pro golfer to
playing like a 5-year-old.
After just a couple more
holes, the NCAA had seen
enough and caught her on
the 14th hole and yanked
her off the course, disquali-
fying her for unsportsman-
like conduct.
Nancy Cross, chair of the
NCAA Division I Women's
Golf Committee indicated
that she believed Brophy
simply was having a little
fun and had no idea of the
effect her actions were
havnig on the rest of the
field.
Three teams-Florida
State, Kent State and Ore-
gon were asked to remain
at the course in case Notre
Dame played well enough
to force a playoff for the
eighth and final playoff
spot. As it turned out with-

Urban, rural committee formed to stop recruiting


Continued From Page 1B

The committee will re-
search what other south-
eastern state associations
are doing to "level the
playing field" in terms of
obtaining and developing
talent for student-athletes
in the state of Florida.
The committee, which
was commissioned in the
Fall of 2009, traveled
throughout the state to
gather feedback from par-
ents, coaches and other
stakeholders at public
meetings about issues of
concern regarding partici-
pation.
Six meetings were held
last fall in Lake City,
Ocala, Bradenton, Marian-
na, Hollywood and
Gainesville.
From this feedback, the
committee developed the
following recommenda-
tions:
To create a new divi-
sion of participating
schools, private and public,
which have been designat-
ed as rural by the Office of
Tourism, Trade and Eco-
nomic Development (OT-
TED), and whose student
enrollments are 500 or
less. This classification
shall be limited to the fol-
lowing sports: boys and
girls basketball, baseball,
football, boys and girls
soccer, softball and girls
volleyball.
To ensure penalties for
an offense of recruiting, or
any violations) of eligibil-


ity bylaws, are very severe,
including but not limited
to: program and/or school
suspension from the Asso-
ciation; program and/or
school restrictive proba-
tion, including exclusion
from state series playoff
events; and increased fi-
nancial penalties.
To investigate the use
of a "clearinghouse" sys-
tem for international stu-
dent eligibility, with no
more than one internation-
al student being eligible to
participate on each varsity-
level team.
To seek input from
member schools regarding
reclassification and redis-
tricting processes.
"We have a number of
member schools that need
issues addressed in terms
of equitable competition,"
said FHSAA Executive Di-
rector Roger Dearing.
"We need to make sure
people know this is not a
public-private issue. This
is an issue of small rural
schools that do not draw
their student populations
from larger urban areas or
outside the state or coun-
try, and have a difficult
time competing against
those that do. There is a
way for all schools to exist
and succeed with the ad-
vent of this new division."
As many as 40 schools
are apart of this including
locally Branford, Hamilton
County, Lafayette and
Melody Christian.
The basis of this com-

mittee is football driven
but several schools without
football are also on the
committee including Altha,
Bethlehem, Cedar Key,
Everglades Prep, Heartland
Christian, Heritage,
Melody Christian, Paxton,
Ponce de Leon, Poplar
Springs Graceville and
Walker Memorial.
One anonymous coach,
who coached in IB, was
very adement about the sit-
uation sharing his thoughts
on a high school football
web site FlaVarsity.com.
"No matter what the lat-
est 'cover' for it, the issue
is private vs. public. With
them stating that this "was-
n't about private vs public"
means that it actually is
and that they will not ad-
dress it.
"The public vs. private
almost boiled over two
years ago and thankfully it
was killed by cooler heads.
We do not need to have
two separate worlds here in
the Florida, it would be a
mess and cost too much
money. It almost happened
2 years ago, glad it didn't.
"This new idea might be
a 'salve' to this wound, but
I'm not sure that it could
work. They are throwing
this bone out there and it
certainly is better than
wrecking the entire system
though. But it is a weird
idea, I can't even grasp
how they are going to
make it work. I don't think
the the P.T.B. even can fig-
ure it out, but thanks for
trying."
The coach went on to
say other coaches are fed
up as well.
"But coaches are fed-up,
I know a lot of them are.
You could even name this
the 'Bolles bill' if you
want. Small towns are sick
and tired of schools being
classified with them and
forced to play them when
they get wrecked on Friday
nights.
"It's not the fact they
lose, it's usually the case
that they can't even com-
pete with the private
schools that can bring in
any superstar they want
from anytown they want
and pay their tuition to
play there.
"It's not the losing, it's
the getting totatally embar-
rassed that is the issue.
And to these towns, there


are no solutions and they
feel the private schools are
cheating and there is not
way to stop them.
"It's not cheating, it's not
recruiting, it's just the sys-
tem that's in place. These
private schools are not
cheating anybody, if they
were they would have been
turned in long long ago.
They are doing exactly, by
the rules, what they are al-
lowed to do-pay the tuition
of kids who can't effort it,
via a third party. They just
happen to have lots of
money.
"And small towns are
sick of it, coaches are sick
of it and if something isn't
done they will force a split
from public vs. private.
That, in my opinion, will
force too many wonderful
little private Christian
schools out of the business
of football.
"These little schools
don't recruit, nor pay mon-
ey for athletes to go there,
they actually play football
with the kids who go to
their little schools. That's
why they're not any good.
These are not the schools
that this new
idea/law/compromise/solu-
tion is aimed at.
"This law is aimed at
schools such as Bolles with
kids from around the
world, and Trinity Catholic
in Ocala, who have kids
transferring from the Tam-
pa Bay area to play there.
"Although they don't
play, I'll use the example
of Branford, Bradford or
Bell, etc, they cannot com-
pete with that. I know
some of these coaches,
they are not winners, they
just happen to only have
the kids in their area for
their teams.
Local coaches shared
their thoughts about the
matter.
Hamilton County base-
ball coach Ryan Mitchell,
which is in a district with
North Florida Christian
and Maclay stated, "I think
that this new division gives
smaller public rural
schools a chance to be
competitive at every
sport."
Mitchell went on to say,
"The way it stands now,
any small school in our
area will have to beat at
least one private school in
the playoffs in order to win

a state championship. Most
of these schools have great
programs and advantages
that are not afforded to us
at rural public schools and
makes it really hard to
compete at that level.
"I think that this new
classification gives a better
chance to compete in the
playoffs than the move to
classes 2B and lB that
have been done in the past
seven or eight years.
"I don't think the issue
lies with public schools vs.
private schools. I think that
the issue is trying to create
a fair playing ground for
schools, like most of the
ones in our area, that have
a limited number of re-
sources. I think that this a
good move and I look for-
ward to seeing what deci-
sions are made in the next
few months.
"If you look at the Class
1A and Class 2A baseball
and softball brackets, there
are few public schools left.
The winner of the
Lafayette/Sneads softball
game will be the only pub-
lic school in the Final Four
in either 1A or 2A. You can
even see that trend in a 3A
a little. Most public base-
ball schools that played got
eliminated yesterday. Just
more fuel for the fire.
Melody Christian boys
basketball coach Mike
Raines knows exactly what
Mitchell and the rest of the
smaller schools are going
through.
As the area's only pri-
vate school, Melody only
inherits kids from the Live
Oak and Jasper communi-
ties. Although Raines team
has been highly successful
the last three years, they
haven't won their district
or advance past the first
round of the state playoffs,
because of other private
schools who recruit kids
from all over the country
and other countries.
Arlington Country Day
brings in kids from North
Carolina, Maryland, Puerto
Rico and other states as
well and houses them in
off campus apartments.
"Arlington Country Day
(ACD)is not on our level,
we've been very good the
last three years winning 73
games, but for my kids it's
hard to compete with them
in the same district.
"ACD has been to six
straight Final Fours and


had won five state champi-
onships until this season, I
can't beat them. One of my
players plays travel ball
with some of there kids
and they told them about
how they all live in a apart-
ment together. It doesn't
take a genius to figure
what's going on over there,
although you can't accuse
someone without evidence.
Miller was confident if
this new league was in
place his team would have
more hardware for sure.
"I think we would have
definitely won state with-
out those schools this sea-
son. We beat Madison
County and Taylor County
both by 30 points this past
season."
Branford football coach
Bill Wiles chimed in with
his thoughts as well.
"I think it is needed. It
will allign common
schools in a common
classification. It does
not have anything to do
with pi i\ .iic" schools.
Their will be private
schools in the rural classifi-
cation. This is about urban
areas like Tallahasse, Jack-
sonville, Orlando and rural
areas like Branford, Tren-
ton, Bell, and Bronson.
"Urban schools draw
from 100's of thousands by
population while rural
schools only draw from
populations of maybe 2-3
thousand people.
"It is a no brainer to me.
As long as they cap enroll-
ment at approximately 500 I
do not see a problem. If
the enrollment is allowed
to go much over 500, it
will not do what is is in-
tended to do." Branford
football coach Bill Wiles.
After the original story
which ran May 7, Wiles
wanted to stress these
thoughts.
"I still think too much is
being said about "public vs
private" that is not the
deal. If coaches continue to
make that the issue we will
lose out on a great opportu-
nity. It is urban (Tallahas-
see, Jacksonville, Orlando,
Miami)-how many people
live in those cities? How
many people live in
Branford, Bristol, Jay or
Graceville? That is the
whole point period."
We will see what hap-
pens as the FHSAA is ex-
pected to announce a deci-
sion in June.

Brosby told Golf Week-
ly, "It probably wasn't my
best idea. I'm sorry for
everything that happened.
I had no idea my individ-
ual score would mess so
much with team scores."
The problem is this was-
n't some lazy summer day
playing with friends or
family, this was a NCAA
Regional golf tournament
that determines who gets
to advance to the NCAA
Division I championship.
Let this be another les-
son learned in the world of
sports, in a well culitvated
garden it only takes one
bad apple to spoil the en-
tire bunch.

a Friday night say in the
last 27 years, chances are
you might have stumbled
upon Frank Callihan and
Somers Randolph. Take it
from someone who lives
there, the duo were long-
time local legends.
Callihan and Randolph
called Bolles football
games for 27 years mostly
on 930 AM, The Fox radio
station. Wherever the game
was the duo was there
from pre-season to the
state championship game.
If you ever watched
NFL football in the 1990's
you remember the CBS
duo of Pat Summerall and
John Madden. Callihan,


the play by play announcer
and Randolph, the color
analyst, were their high
school counterparts, very
professional despite cover-
ing amateur sports. But
that's the way they pre-
ferred, the amateur ver-
sion. After all they also
taught at Bolles for over
27 years.
Tragically, Randolph
passed away in 2006 at the
age of 72 and Monday
Callihan passed away at
the age of 76.
It was Callihan who in
1989 hired longtime coach
Corky Rogers, the state's
winningest coach. Ran-
dolph called all 10 state


championships including
the most recent one this
past fall in a win over
Tampa Catholic.
I never met a duo more
professional and true to thy
alma mater than Randolph
and Callihan. While the el-
der Callihan is no longer
with us, his legacy will
still live on, as come May
20 in the Spring game
against Clay, his son John
Callihan, who has assisted
along side his dad along
with another person, will
take over the duties. Come
fall it sure will be strange
not hearing Callihan's
voice call the Bolles
games.

GOD SAYS


God


'S


blueprint


By Eric MI, '.v.,. -.
All Scripture references are
from the American Standard
Version, unless otherwise
noted.


C~.


I have had the privilege
and satisfaction of designing the home in
which my family now live. An architect
then professionally prepared it and the
contractor went to work building it to my
specifications. It was completed just the
way we wanted it.
Let us suppose that I designed a four-
bedroom, two-bath home all on one level
and told the contractor to build it to my
specifications. I then go off on a three-
month long trip to Europe (this is
obviously not a true story). While I am
gone, the contractor decides that I need
only three bedrooms and one and a half
baths, and they should be split between
two stories. If I come back from my long
vacation to see this house being built
instead of what I had designed, would I
have a right to be upset? Of course! The
contractor then says something like, "Well,
you didn't tell me not to do it that way!"
A lawsuit would probably ensue as
punishment for the contractor's very poor
judgment.
Suppose you are watching a game of
Major League Baseball, and the batter has
just had his third strike and been called out
by the umpire. Instead of going back to
the dugout, the batter stands there in
preparation for another ball. The umpire
asks him what he's doing, and the batter
responds that he would like to have five
strikes today instead of three. The umpire
argues with him that this is not how you
play Major League Baseball, but the batter
still wants five strikes. The umpire pulls
out an official rulebook for Major League
Baseball, and reads indeed that a batter is
allowed three strikes. At this point, the
batter may claim that his father didn't
teach him that way, he was always allowed
five strikes, and the rulebook doesn't say
that he can't have five strikes! Who is
right, the batter's father or the official rules
and regulations of Major League


Baseball? Of course, it's the official rules
and regulations of Major League Baseball;
if you change the rules, you are no longer
playing Major League baseball as defined
by the rulebook.
God's Word works like that, too. He has
provided us a blueprint for how we are to
live and worship. In Leviticus 10:1-2, we
read, "And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of
Aaron, took each of them his censer, and
put fire therein, and laid incense thereon,
and offered strange fire before Jehovah,
which he had not commanded them. And
there came forth fire from before Jehovah,
and devoured them, and they died before
Jehovah." In the preceding chapters, God
had given the children of Israel the rules
for how to worship Him. Nadab and
Abihu, two of the sons of the high priest,
Aaron, then offered "strange fire" before
the Lord. The English Standard Version
renders "strange" as "unauthorized." In
other words, it was fire that God had not
told them to use; by telling them to use a
certain type of fire, all others were
therefore unauthorized. For their
arrogance, God Himself killed Nadab and
Abihu. God was serious about the
business of serving Him properly then.
God is still serious about us serving Him
properly today. In John 4:24, Jesus tells
us, "God is a Spirit: and they that worship
Him must worship in spirit and truth."
Note the word "must"; it denotes a
command, not a suggestion to be followed
or not. God demands that we worship
Him in spirit (having the right attitude)
AND truth (having the right actions); if
our worship and service to Him do not
have both of these components, then it is
vain worship. In Matthew 15:9, we are
told by Jesus Himself, "But in vain do
they worship Me, teaching as their
doctrines the precepts of men." Other
versions translate "precepts" as
"doctrines." If someone worships God
other than the way in which He has told
us, his or her worship is in vain; it is
worthless!
Friends, I pray that you are serving God
according to the blueprint He has given us,
the Bible. If you are doing and saying
religious things that the Bible has not
authorized you to do, you should seriously
consider stopping them and go only by the
Bible. Join me next time as we continue
our discussion of what God says.

Musical chairs


I wonder where you are
sitting right now...
I've found myself sitting
in some unfamiliar seats
recently, so I started
thinking about how life
seems to insist on a never-
ending parade of musical
chairs. For example, just a
few days ago I sat at my
younger son's graduation
from college, and then at
the dinner table while we
made plans for him to
move away from home to
further his education.
Surely it wasn't so long
ago that I sat with him in a
rocking chair...
Lately, I have also spent
quite a bit of time in the
passenger seat of my own
car ... because my daughter
now has her learner's
permit. Wasn't it just a
few days ago that she was
excited to be a "big girl"
and no longer sit in a
booster seat? And now I
look over at her sitting
confidently behind the
wheel ... and wonder how I
got moved to the passenger
seat so quickly?
This week I will sit in
another seat that is
inevitable, and yet
unwelcome. My family
will sit together to
remember and celebrate
the life of my granddaddy.
At 83, "Papa" lived a long
full life, and one that also
testifies to many
challenging seats through
the years. A few that we
remembered together

recently included his seat
in Sunday school and
church as a little boy ... on
a hard wooden bench ...
every Sunday. Sitting on a
ship that took him far
away from his hometown
in Alabama and into a war
where he was proud to
serve his country, but
suffered more from being
homesick than seasick.
Taking his seat next to my
grandmother and her four
children was no easy task,
but he loved and raised
them as his own ... and as
a family we sat together
some years ago and said
goodbye to his wife and
our "Granny."
So again, I wonder
where you are sitting right
now ... maybe you are in a
doctor's office waiting for
test results, or by the
phone anxious for the
outcome of a job
interview. Perhaps you are
struggling over algebra
homework or deciding
how to pay that bill you
just received in the mail.
Possibly you are holding
your baby boy and
teaching him to say "Dad-
dy," or trying to figure out
how to turn loose of your
daughter as she soon walks
down the aisle. Whether
you are struggling or
celebrating, life continues
to insists that our seats
change...
The good news is the
Bible identifies an
unchanging seat in

Matters
By Angie Land

Ephesians 2:4-6, "But
because of His great love
for us, God, who is rich in
mercy, made us alive with
Christ even when we were
dead in transgressions-it is
by grace you have been
saved. And God raised us
up with Christ and seated
us with him in the
heavenly realms in Christ
Jesus." Seated with Him ...
In light of being seated
with Christ in eternity, our
struggles here on earth
seem much smaller, our
celebrations much greater,
and our goodbyes only
temporary! Because of His
great love for us, God
offers to make us alive
with Christ, saved by His
grace...no matter where
you are sitting.

Will you pray for me?


By David H. Matier
Doctor of Pastoral
C '.. l,, 1 ..
dmatier@windstream.net


Many times you have W1 1
been asked by friends,
acquaintances or strangers to
pray for them and so often you've
answered, "I will," only to separate with
no future thought of them. They were
serious; they had a need. Maybe it was an
illness or a family problem, a rebellious
teen they are dealing with but they felt
they needed your prayers. Your prayers
were important to them! And had you
remembered to pray it may have made a
difference in the person's life, the situation
and maybe it would have been a life
changing experience for you.
If you have a serious problem with your
memory it might be a good idea to write
down the request or pray with the person
about the matter where-and-when asked.
It may be in a grocery store or a restaurant
- but you have done what the person
asked; you have petitioned God, our
Heavenly Father for the request on his/her
behalf. Now that doesn't relieve you of


praying later but you have prayed for
his/her request.
Paul told the Colossians that he prayed
for them every since Epaphras had told
him and Timothy the Colossian church
had for Paul and Timothy: "since the day
we heard it, do not cease to pray for
you..." (Colossians 1:7-9). Paul had not
even been asked by Epaphras to pray for
Colossians but he continued to pray for
him while so many Christians take prayer
so lightly they fail to pray for those who
have said, "Please pray for me."
One of the great sins of "omission" is to
fail to pray for those who have come to us
and asked us to pray for them. 0, the
beauty of God's mercy and grace as
expressed in I John 1:9, "If we confess our
sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us
our sins, and to cleanse us from all
unrighteousness."

FRIDAY, MAY 14, 2010


* SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK


Dear Classified Guys,
I am one of five administrative man-
agers in the same secretary pool. We
all switch around when someone is
on vacation, traveling on business or
a department needs additional help.
All of us have been here for at least
seven years and get along very well.
Just recently one woman left to start
a family and Annette was hired to fill
the position. She is nice and like her
predecessor, gets along with every-
one. She is always professional and
courteous and her attire is within the
dress code, but her style, in my opin-
ion, is a bit too risque for the office.
There is no sexual harassment or
anything like that, but I think the
attention she draws is causing oth-
ers to disrespect us as a group. I
can't put my finger on it, but it's the
looks I see people giving her and the
whispering that sometimes
occurs when one of us .
enters the room. Since I
plan on staying with this
company, should I say some-
thing about her attire or just
hope it passes.

Carry: It's not often we get asked
questions about fashion. We're lucky our
wives let us pick out our own outfits!


Duane "Casti
& Todd"





Cash: Your situation sounds more
like a high school than a professional
environment. Although you probably
didn't plan it, it seems the five of you
formed a clique in the office and now
with a new co-worker in the mix, things
are not quite the same anymore.
Carry: However, unlike high school,
everyone here is a grown-up and an
employee of a company. That means
you need to act accordingly and work
together within your group.
Cash: Keep in mind that dress styles
are often subjective. One person's
"inappropriate" may be perfectly fine to
another.
Carry: Since Annette is still new,


SIRED

give her some time to adjust to the job.
She may be dressing up, hoping to
impress and fit in or it may just be her
style. In either case, it's best to focus
more on the job and less on her outfits.
Cash: And until someone actually
says something to you about your group
or performance, just ignore the whis-
pers. People love to gossip at the office.
When the uniqueness of the new person
wears off, they'll probably just find
something else to whisper about.
Carry: Besides, you never know
how long Annette will stay in your
pool. She may swim to another compa-
ny or worse, be promoted and become
your boss!


Electronic Gossip
Today's technology makes it easier
than ever to spread important informa-
tion. Unfortunately, it makes it easier
than ever to share gossip as well. And
the office environment is no exception.
Before you click 'send' on the latest
office rumor, consider this. A recent
survey found that 60% of workers say
office gossip is their number one pet
peeve and annoyance at the workplace.
So while many people use rumors and
gossip as a bonding experience,
remember that the next time somebody
clicks 'send', it could be about you!
Shirts & Ties
It seems wearing "business-casual" is
on the rise. A survey by an online job
site found that 78% of executives prefer
to dress in casual clothing at the office.
Dressing relaxed can lead people to con-
clude you're more creative or more fun.
Unfortunately, it can also cause people
to take you less seriously according to
the survey. And as it turns out, "suiting-
up" or wearing conventional business
attire can have its advantage. About
70% of those who dress for success are
perceived to be at a more senior level
and 60% are taken more seriously.

Here's a Tip
My husband, Burt, believes that
hard work gets rewarded. To celebrate
our anniversary, he dressed up in a for-
mal tuxedo and took me to a very fine
restaurant, where coincidently his
company president was having dinner
as well. As we walked to our table, the
president held up a hand and waved
my husband over. Thinking he was
finally noticed for his ten years of hard
work, Burt went over to their table.
Minutes later he returned embar-
rassed and told me that the president
mistook him for the waiter and asked
for a martini. "Oh my goodness," I
laughed. "What did you say?"
"What could I say?" my husband
shrugged. "I asked if he wanted it
shaken or stirred?"
