'Small victory'

for anti-tax

contingent
Commissioners lower
tentative village rate
by half a point
By Jeff Waters

A small victory. That's what
John Lacquey of Branford called
the county's decision to lower the
tentative millage rate from 8.5 to
8 Tuesday night.
Commissioners had previously
set the tentative 'millage rate at
8.5095, the rollback rate. The roll-
back rate is the rate required to
bring in the same amount of rev-
enue as the previous year.

By Jo Ross

the crash of a tractor-trailer on
1-75 in Hamilton County was
evacuated early Tuesday
morning when it was learned that toxic
chemicals were released in the accident.
The driver, Geary George Walker, 43, of
Orlando was seriously injured, accord-
ing to Florida Highway Patrol reports.
Walker was northbound on 1-75 just
south of CR 132 in Hamilton County
when his 2004 International semi trav-
eled onto the east shoulder and struck a
tree, said FHP. The tractor-trailer rolled
onto its right side and caught fire, ignit-
ing its cargo, which consisted of several
different chemicals, FHP reports show.
Interstate 75 was closed from US 129
to Interstate 10 until midafternoon Tues-
day.
Smoke from the incident drifted into
northern Suwannee County. No local in-


juries were reported.
Walker was listed in good condition at
Shands UF Wednesday morning.

The big rig's cargo consisted in part of

President's speech heard loud and clear, for the most part


By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com


It was an "uneventful day" overall,
said Janene Fitzpatrick, assistant princi-
pal at Suwannee Middle School, as stu-
dents at her school and throughout the
county heard President Barack Obama
exhort them to work hard and do their
best in school during a televised address
Tuesday.
The President's contro-
versial "Back to School"
speech, which at first
thought was unsettling for
many local parents, went

off without much of a hitch.
At Suwannee Primary School, only
three children were separated, at their
parents' request, from their peers while
Obama addressed students, said princi-
pal Melissa Moseley. The school report-

Looking back at






It was eight years ago today that terrorists
attacked us on our own soil, taking nearly
3,000 lives. Hijackers took over four commer-
cial jets. They crashed two into the twin. tow-
ers-of the World Trade Center in New York.
One jet targeted the Pentagon. The other was
brought down in a Pennsylvania field after
heroic passengers stood up and fought back.
Democrat reporter Jeff Waters asked some
local folks for their reactions on first learning
of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

UNDER ATTACK
"Well when I first heard was when
the second building that got hit. I said
'Oh my God it's a terrorist attack.' I
come from a military family so when
something like that happens it's my. .
first thought."
Topping's sister-in-law and brother-in-law worked
at the Pentagon. However, their office was being ren-
ovated and they had been moved to another part of
the building.
"We spent a couple of days trying to see if they
were all right." -- Vicky Topping

FREAK ACCIDENT
"I used to work at a funeral home
and I saw! a replay of the first tower '
and I thought it was a small plane
that accidentally hit the tower. I
couldn't believe it. I thought it was a -
freak accident and then I saw the sec-
ond plane. It was scary. You can't work, you're think-
ing about it all. It was such a sudden thing."
Neves was living in Ft. Lauderdale at the time.
-- Euripedes Neves


WHY WOULD THEY DO IT?
"I was thinking that the govern-
ment had something to do with it.
Why would they -do something like
that?" -- Willie Ford

RETALIATION
"I was in awe that something like
that could happen. It was unbeliev-
able and then realizing that it did
happen, I wondered what in the
world was going on. After that I
thought retaliation, we got to get
those who did this. That's what I was
thinking." -- Mark Hodges

YOU NEVER KNOW
"I was thinking, man, you have to
mind how you treat people because
you never know what could happen.
You could be here today and gone to-
morrow." -- Arkevia Gandy

GOING TO WAR?
"Maybe the country's going to war.
Maybe war's going to start on our
own territory. I was worried that
more buildings were going to be hit,
more attacks."
Mendez was residing in Clearwa-
ter at the time. -- Steven Mendez

8 years


later

We gather each year, as
well we should, to pray
and shed tears over the he-
roes and victims of 9/11.
We hold vigils in their
name and rename roads in
their honor. Their memo-
ries will stay with us for-
ever.
It's not nearly enough.
The way to pay homage
to the 3,000 who fell is to
change the world in their
name. It's time past time
to end our addiction to
oil and quit funding, how-
ever indirectly, the folks
who want to kill us.
Our beef isn't with the
average Saudi Arabian,.
who may well hate al Qae-
da as much as we do. It's
with his government, and
others like it, that call-
themselves our friends
while funding terror on a;
global scale. In the case of
the Saudis, it's the world-
wide dissemination of a
radical form of Islam used
to justify hatred, terror and
death.
But back to our oil prob-
lem.
We know full well what
we're up against. Finding
our way out of this wilder-
ness may take longer than
it did Moses. And surely it
would have been easier to
rally public support had
we gotten an earlier start.
But that's no excuse to
keep dithering. *
Americans are tough and
smart, and we've always
been willing to pull to-
gether for the good of our
nation. We think that time
has come again.

Rant


Want to vent?.

Our hotline is

open 24/7.
Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak
your mind! How? By calling the Suwan-
nee Democrat Rant and Rave hotline.
The hotline never closes and is your way
to let it out. You can let everyone know
how you feel -- as long as you express
yourself in a respectful way.
Note: In written entries to Rant and
Rave, errors in spelling, grammar or
punctuation are those of the authors.

I don't recall ever saying my previous
residence was "perfect", it wasn't or I
wouldn't be here! I think your confusing
low cost of living with low standard of
living. Gas & utilities are considerably
higher here. The amount of travel re-
quired to get anything adds to the cost of
living here also. Tax millage is about the
same with far less services and due to the
lack of selection & competition, con-
sumer goods & services are higher, Wal -
Mart in Valdosta or Lake City are cheap-
er, as is just about everything else. Wages ,
& income levels are lower here & the
children of the corn attitude is free. This
does not add up to a lower cost of living.

You can certainly tell the schools are-
back in. Specifically by all of the flashing
speed limit signs at 7-8 p.m. at night, 3-4
a.m. in the morning and on weekends.
Why can't someone program these signs
to flash Monday through Friday and only
at the appropriate times? This shouldn't
be that difficult of a task.

The president of the United States is'
making a speech Tuesday-to our.children
in Lake City, Columbia County. This phi-
losophy and indoctrination of our chil-
dren, comes directly from the communist
manifesto, are we so ignorant we don't
understand what is happening?

Since I have lived in)Suwannee County
approximately 98 percent of the people I
have met are conservative. They have
been hard working, tax paying citizens all
their lives. They love their God, their.
guns, and' their freedom. They respect.
their neighbors and ask nothing except
the freedom to work praise their God,,
hunt and express their freedoms. This is
the little man, this is the backbone of
America; of which I am proud to be one.
These are the people our representatives
our politicians need to uphold and sup-"
port.


To the Editor:


I have waited for some time to express
my thoughts on the issues filling the
pages of the Suwannee Democrat rants
page. Being a simple man of humble be-
ginnings I am slow to speak. It was my fa-
ther's guidance that taught 'me to listen
and understand all sides of an issue before
you make your thoughts known. Truth has
a way of filtering its way into the babble
of fools and once you hear it you will
know where to stand. The debate over a
dry county has far reaching ramifications
and could well solve the problems of the
world. While in deep contemplation I
came upon the truth of it all and how mar-
velous the resolution could be. Why, a
perfect world is finally within our reach.
There are those who would punish the
business people for the law that keeps our
county dry. This seems the best way to
show those in power who is right. Em-
ployees of these small businesses will
lose their jobs and that will teach the


Rave


I can't believe all the morons moving to
Suwannee County only to discover it is a
dry county then start complaining about
everything under the sun. I am a liquor
drinking and have lived in Suwannee
County all my life and don't want it to go
wet because it would only bring more id-
iots like you, you could have always
moved to neighboring Hamilton County,
it's wet but has absolutely nothing to of-
fer. So if you don't like the place you
chose to move too, shut up, pack up, and
get the hell out!

Yes I live at the Advent Christian Vil-
lage in Dowling Park. I have called about
this before. The papers are being thrown
on the lawns with rain and the sprinkler
system going. It is becoming very annoy-
ing. As I travel out in the mornings I see
this often and I also see some little or-
ange bags, placed squarely in the drive-
way. Is this a competitive newspaper? It
might be worth it.

All you yahoos need to get a life! Give
this alcohol situation a break. Let's rant
and rave about something new. Let's have
a beer!

I want to rave about the 'district school
grade of a "B." And to congratulate for-
mer schools superintendent Walter.
Boatwright on that accomplishment.
What an asset he was to Suwannee Coun-
ty Schools as he led our district with con-
fidence and compassion, unlike the cur-
rent administration. Suwannee County's
loss was Madison County's gain. We will
sure miss him.

I have lived on 180th St. in McAlpin
for the past 18 yrs. In all that time all the
county road dept. has done is PATCH
THE PATCHES. ON THE PART BE-
TWEEN US 129 and COUNTY ROAD
49. If something isn't done the road will
become a bunch of solid patches. I
thought when we voted the do nothing
commissioner in district 5 out of office
and got a new one that things would be
different. No so. still the same old pet
projects get taken care of. I wish I had
stayed home and not voted. If I had done
that, then no one could say you got what
you voted for.

Last week's gas price at Love's in Lee,
FL, was $2.47/gal. while the gas price in
Live Oak was $2.58/gal. Don't you just
love it???? :)

What happened to Hamilton Co? Why,
it's 'still there! God did not pull a Sodom
& Gomorrah on it. They "Saw the Light"
brother & want to halt the Exodus of their


best & brightest to greener pastures. I saw
no drunks or devils, but did notice less
hypocrites! I did see sewer & water lines
being installed down SR6 from 75, a site
for the NEW power plant, a proposal for
a NEW CVS store, a NEW Italian restau-
rant, (serving beer & wine), all the old
buildings spruced up, & lots, of commer-
cial for sale signs, zoned for eateries &
hotels. (All within the past year)This is
going to draw more revenue away from
here. I ain't trying to be mean, just trying
to get some action here, & maybe a laugh.
"The-Lord Helps Those Who Help Them-
selves".

Was it REALLY necessary for the
Suwannee District Schools to have a re-
tired principal hired as a person on con-
tract to do a reconfiguration study of the
elementary schools arid also have that
SAME person provide information on
Single School Culture? Couldn't some-
one else who is already employed at the
district office have done that? Money is
tight and we need to be conservative with
ALL SCHOOL DOLLARS!!!

Once more, a pointless defense. Hamil-
ton has less than 1/3 of our population.
The question should read what's hap-
pening in Hamilton Co.?" Their develop-
ment boards are doing the job they are
funded for & it's showing. Look at the
state census, the 5 dry counties are among
the poorest & least populated, this is no
coincidence folks. The glaring exception
is Suwannee, our per capital income is
way down there, but our population al-
most equals the other 4 combined. The
RFQ standard should be applied to all ap-
pointed or contracted positions, paid or
unpaid. The corruption & incompetence
of giving these various responsibilities to
" so & so's brother-in-law" is! costing us
plenty. Voters, need to apply this standard
at the polls also. What passes for a politi-
cal system here is totally responsible for
our being an "economic crisis area". Do
we have any officials here with a degree
in economics, political science or exp. in
gov't elsewhere?

county commissioners who is boss. If we
destroy enough of our infrastructure they
will have to see it our way, right? Makes
sense to me.
This leads me to know that the way to
solve all our problems is to pass laws that
will correct all our ills. It works on the
Federal and State level doesn't it? Let's
see, we passed seat belt laws and now, no
one dies in crashes, and our insurance
rates have plummeted. We are saving
lives and money with that one; and we
gain a ton of revenue with tickets we write
for those who fail to follow the law. Win,
Win, Win, all around... We have laws
against robbery, murder, and all kinds of
criminal acts that have saved us lives and
keep our families safe. Why, we, don't
even have to lock our doors anymore.
Laws are the way to cure all our ills. Let's
pass laws against cancer and all those dis-
eases that kill our old and young, that way
we will save every one. We would not
even need health insurance if we did that
right?


QUESTION OF THE WEEI

Did the President's Wednesday

night speech on healthcare reform

change your thinking on the issue?

Vote online at www.suwanneedemocrat.com


I am ready to march on City Hall and
the State House and Washington to make
sure they pass laws against poverty, sick-
ness, disease, anger, fear, war, death, and
all those things that make life so difficult
to live with. If we can just pass laws to
end all these things we will all live in the
most perfect world possible. Laws are the
key to all our ills. Laws will save all of us
and why we have waited so long, before
taking charge of all the people's lives, I
will never know.
What do you say? Ready to march and
get it done? Let's form a club and move
forward saving everyone with new laws.
Laws like the one that keeps our residents
from drinking and being a hazard to the
health and well being of our county.
Thank God they have this law. it is, after
all, God's law that man should not drink. I
do not drink and I do not want you to
drink either. The law is on my side.

Rebooting Branford's economy


The crowd watched and listened closely as Jim Beeler presented simulated before-and-after pictures of Branford's proposed revitalization.
- Photo: Stephenie Livingston


Rotary rep presents plan to Town Council


Jim Beeler of the
University of Florida
presented his vision of
downtown Branford's
future. "Our plan is to
make Branford a place
to go to, instead of a
place to go through,"
said Beeler. "Branford'
needs to be a more
lively place. I was told
by someone that back
in the day on a Friday
night, you had to walk
sideways down the
street to make it
through the crowd.
That's certainly not the
case now."
By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

Early each morning, Branford bustles
with people passing through on their way
to work, agricultural trucks traveling to de-
liver their load, and tourists excited to'
kayak on the Suwannee or ride one of
Branford's bike trails. And that is all they
do, pass through.


That may soon change, however.
Rotary's Revitalization Committee has-
been working on a plan to change the ap-
pearancp of downtown since 2006. Tues-
day night, they finally had the opportunity
to present their ideas to the Branford Town
Council.
Peggy Maloney, Revitalization Commit-
tee leader, began Rotary's presentation.
Maloney said the committee does not want
to see Branford grow in population, but.
does want to see the economy grow...
"We want to do this so that people will
come to town, spend their money, and
leave," said Maloney. "We do want.to pre-
serve our rural heritage." Maloney said the'
Revitalization Committee wants to "start
the conversation" and that nothing in the
current plan is "set in stone."
Jim Beeler of the University of Florida
presented his vision of downtown Bran-
ford's future. "Our plan is to make Bran-
ford a place to go to, instead of a place to
go through," said Beeler. "Branford needs
to be a more lively place. I was told by
someone that back in the day on a Friday
night, you had to walk sideways down the
street to make it through the crowd. That's
certainly not the case now."
According to Beeler's presentation, a re-
vitalization of downtown will encourage
small, family owned businesses to open,
thereby creating more jobs and strengthen-
ing the local economy. By taking steps
such as adding parking, sprucing up down-
town buildings and encouraging foot traffic


iand bic list. by adding a bike path and
improving sidewalks, businesses will thrive
-and downtown will better resist decay and
crime.
The crbwd of mostly Rotarians and
small business owners overwhelmingly ap-
proved of the simulated before-and-after
pictures Beeler showed via PowerPoint.
Most reactions were in the realm of "What
an improvement" and "It looks great."
However, not everyone was convinced.
"I do not want to see-big tall buildings
where I can see people looking at me. A
big town brings a lot of problems," said
Jean Brown, 30-year Branford resident. "I
don't agree with this at all."
"We're not talking about building sky
scrapers," responded Ro.tary President
Trannie Lacquey. "Downtown is deteriorat-
ing. This would encourage people to spend
time downtown and bring integrity back to
our town."
"We want more money,' said John Lac-
quey, a small business owner like many of
those present at the meeting. "We need to
do something to try and attract more peo-
ple."
Town Council members expressed their
concern over the cost of revitalization and
upkeep.
"None of it would have to come out of
the tax base of this town. Not one red pen-
ny," said Maloney. Maloney and Beeler
both suggested grants and other programs
that could help with the cost. "The money
is there," said Maloney. Town Clerk Donna


Hardin said grants of the kind Rotary is
,suggesting are scarce.
"These kind of projects are low on the
totem pole," said Hardin. "Money is going
towards things considered more impor-
tant."
Still, many present were confident that if
the town worked together, they could find
funding. A Woman's Club representative
and several Rotary members suggested that
clubs in the area could pitch in and help by
keeping up plants and trees.
All Town Council members said they
were 'in favor of some kind of revitaliza-
tion. All agreed, however, that revitaliza-
tion would take time and the combined ef-
forts of the entire town along with Town
Council.
"I'm for it," said councilman Ken Saun-
ders. "I agree with Ken to some extent,"
said Councilman Charlie Daniels. "But
these businesses are going to have to help
out too."
Other council members supported some
sprucing up, but were concerned about the
upkeep and grants.
"I like what I see," said Councilwoman
Alice Childress. "I'm concerned about the
upkeep and grants, but our town needs
some sprucing up. It sure does." Council-
man Matt Bums stated that he's also for re-
vitalization, but says. final model will
have to be developed in conjunction with
the council.

1 renovations on the way


By Stephenie Livingston

Renovation's to Bran-
ford's community center
are set to take place this
month. Mayor Don
Owens, Town Clerk Don-
na Hardin and Assistant
Town Clerk Tanya Bird
are working together to
renovate the center before
the fall and winter rush of
holiday parties and fami-
ly reunions. The town
council voted Tuesday


night to add new carpet
and tile, along with a
fresh coat of paint to the
inside. The kitchen will
receive new counter
space. The outside of the
building will get some
sprucing up with a new
paint job.
According to Bird,
these improvement will
be underway during the
next three weeks and
should be completed by
early October.

Rebooting Branford's economy
Continued From Page 7A doing enough to improve been made about Town -


Town Council President
Shirley Clark said she also
favored making improve-
ments to the town, but Ro-
tary's ideas would have to
be looked over by Bran-
ford's own town planner
and grant writers before
anything is decided.
"We would have to have
our town planner and our
grant writers look into
something," said Clark. "I
can't say this will start to-
morrow. It will have to start
on a smaller scale."
Clark also attempted to
dismiss rumors that the
Town Council has not been


the town.
"Some comments were
made that we didn't agree
with," said Clark. "We
haven't sat idle. We have
been working to help this
community."
The town has been suc-
cessful of late in securing
grants. These grants have
been used toi make im-
provements to parks, build
a second boat ramp at Ivey
Park, paved roads and
make improvements to the
sewage system.
After the meeting, Tran-
nie Lacquey commented
that she was not'aware of
any comments that had


Council's lacking concern
for community improve-
ment, but she did feel
Clark's comments were di-
rected at Rotary.
Clark ended by saying
that the Branford communi-
ty has always worked to-
gether and she hopes to re-
tain a positive atmosphere
between those interested in
revitalization and Town
Council.
After the meeting, Rotary
members seemed thrilled to
have finally started the con-
versation about revitaliza-
tion between themselves,
small business owners, resi-
dents and Town Council.

Food for Thought

When Christ Is Lord
A life controlled by Satan is no life at all. It is
nearly an existence. When Satan is in control our
minds are futile [Eph. 4:17], darkened [Eph. 4:18],
unclean [Eph. 4:19], corrupt [Eph. 4:22]. But, what
about when Christ is Lord?
1) We Put On A New Man: The new man is created
in righteousness and holiness, who imitates God
[Eph. 4:24, 5:1].
2) Truth And Honesty Are Practiced: We put away
lying and speak the truth. We don't go to bed angry
or practice sin. [Eph. 4:25-26].
3) Forgiveness Is Practiced: "And, be kind'to one
another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, just
as God in Christ for you." [Eph. 4:32]. Did you
hear Paul? Forgive others like God forgave you
through Christ.
4) We Walk In Love: Our walk is to be in love. It is
to be a sacrifice that smells sweet to God [Eph.
5:2]. God should be smiling with the way we live
our lives. The way we talk, act and treat others
[Eph. 4:31]. Paul will say our speech is to be pure
[Eph. 4:29]. Being a Christian is more than just
mere talk, it is action! [Col. 2:12, 3:1-2].

loaded from one
closet to be sort-
ed and hung in from south
another all over
the place, and at
least a half dozen projects in various
stages of completion, and one of my
nieces surprised me this weekend. She,
her husband and one of their children
came up from St. Petersburg to visit a
friend of Chip's just one street over. I was
so surprised and tickled to death to see
Ann Marie after such a long time, and the
visit was much too short, though still a
nice surprise. Hopefully they'll be back
up again soon, and for a longer visit. I
can assure you I wasted no time getting
things put away and the painting finished
just in case someone else decides to "sur-
prise" me.
And praise God, my old wheelchair is
once again in good working order, though
it took a while to get it really cleaned up
after such a long time outside in the shed.
Thanks to Lori and Grady picking up the
batteries for me and Grady taking off all
the wheels for me to clean, then putting
the chair back together, I am once again
"on the road," and so ready to be out and
about after such a long time.
This week please include in your
prayers John Johnson, who had open-heart
surgery this past Tuesday. He and Janice
are very active members of O'Brien Bap-
tist church, as well as neighbors of mine
here in O'Brien. I pray the surgery goes
well and that John is home recuperating
quickly. I talked with Becky Fletcher last
week, and she assured me she is doing
well after her last hospital visit.
Another neighbor, John Weston,
stopped by to say hello during the week,
and told me he had been in the hospital re-
cently. He had taken a grandson up to
Wild Adventures and while there had to.
be taken by ambulance to the hospital.
The result was another stent being put in
his heart, but he was looking good and
said he was feeling fine. In fact he was
getting ready to go back to Wild Adven-
tures with other members of his family in
the next few weeks.
Carol Brown came over to spend a cou-
ple of days with me. We always have a.
good time in each other's company, and
she is doing well. I also got a phone call
from Mary Goldsmith, and she'll be com-
ing down for a few weeks in February.
She says hi to all her old friends, and is
doing fine up there in Ky.
I just got off the phone with another old
friend, and would you believe we dis-
cussed what, we'd be doing this year over
the holidays? She just had to remind me
that Thanksgiving is only two months

Branford Camera Club


meets Sept. 16
The next meeting of the Branford Camera Club will be Thursday, Sept. 16, at the Bran-
ford Public Library at 7:30 p.m. Dorothy Butler will lead our program, discussing wild-
flower identification. Our homework assignment for the October meeting will be to find
and identify fall wildflowers in our area. Also, we'll be sharing our "reflections" pictures
from the summer homework assignment.
Mark your calendar for the October 15 meeting when Terry Hancock will give us a
brief review on composition ... Terry says it's about 30 minutes long and covers: the rule
of thirds, leading lines, framing, graphic design, backgrounds, balance, leading space,
patterns and landscaping composition techniques. This will be a worthwhile review for
all of us, followed by an open forum to share our wildflowers "homework" photos. Pick
out three or four of your best, and bring them on a disk or as prints to share.
The Branford Camera Club meets at the Branford Public Library on the third Thurs-
day of each month, with two exceptions. We have no meeting in August, and our De-
cember meeting is held on the second Thursday to accommodate the busy holiday sea-
son.

And lately our weather has been really
nice, perfect for getting outside and doing
some yard work. If you see me outside,
honk your horn and wave, or stop and
share a few words, and maybe a glass of
tea. I truly enjoy that. As always, if you

come on in!

IGet 'caught' eatinE fish?



Get 'caught' eating fish?


F


By Katherine Allen
County Extension Director
UF/IFAS Suwannee Co.
Extension

When I was a kid, fish
was a breaded square and
came in a box. It wasn't
until I was much older that
I began to enjoy fish. Per-
haps it was that my tastes
had changed, but I really
think it was as a result of
having quality seafood
available. Fresh and
frozen fish cut into steaks
or filets had a much differ-
ent consistency than what I
had remembered dipping
into tarter sauce. Then, just
as I started considering
purchasing fish because it
was healthy and tasty, I
heard warnings of mercury,
dioxins and PCBs. When
the advisories came out,
Americans like me stopped
eating fish rather than just
reducing the amounts or
frequency of the types of
fish in which mercury, for
example, was found.
Basically, the extra
guidelines were meant for
women and young chil-

dren. For most people, the
risk of eating fish exposed
to mercury is not a health
concern. But, the damage
had been done. Even now,
though agencies like the
American Medical Associ-
ation and the Institute of
Medicine of the National
Academies have reported
that the benefits of eating
fish outweigh the potential
risks; there is still confu-
sion of whether or not fish
should be eaten.
Women of childbearing
age and nursing mothers
should consume two (2)
servings of seafood per
week. A serving is six
ounces of cooked fish. I
would venture a guess that
most of us in Suwannee
County don't eat two serv-
ings of seafood a week.
The average American is
eating only five ounces of
fish per week. So, the ad-
visory was recommending
that this at-risk group eat
more than double what
was typically being con-
sumed by the general pub-
lic.! These are the reduced
serving guidelines to en-
sure safety for pregnant
women and small children.
In a 2007 study published
in the Lancet, it was inter-
preted that "...the advice to
limit seafood consumption .
could actually be detri-
mental. These results
show that risks from the
loss of nutrients were
greater than the risks of
harm from exposure to
trace contaminants in 340
grams seafood eaten week-
ly."
So, when you are faced
with a decision about
whether or not ;o eat fish,
think about this:, You've
always heard fish were
"brain.fcood," right" Wel,,.
there is truth to'that state-
ment, especially when it
comes to infants. Fish is
an unusually high source
of decosahexaenoic acid


Why Eat Fish?

Pregnant or nursing women
who eat fish that is high in
omega-3 fatty acids will
pass these nutrients to their
babies and support healthy
brain and eye development.


How Much Fish to Eat?
Health experts recommend
that women eat 8-12 ounces/
week and children (ages 2-6)
eat 2 ounces/week. Three
ounces of fish is about the
size of a deck of cards.


Before Eating Fish
That You Catch
Check with your State's
Health Department for a
fish consumption advisory
for locally caught fish and
avoid eating highly contam-
inated fish. Visit our website.


Do Not Eat Raw Fish
When pregnant, avoid
eating raw oysters, raw
fish (sushi) or refrigerated
smoked fish, Do not feed
raw fish to infants or
children,

Swine flu vaccinations


close at hand


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gafinews.com

The Suwannee County Health De-
partment will commence a mass vac-
cination for the H1Ni (swine flu) in
the coming weeks, Pamela Blackmon,
administrator for the Suwannee Coun-
ty Health Department; said.
Blackmon said the department will
be ready for vaccinations when it be-
comes available, which should be by
the end of October.
Blackmon said the department has
been preparing local governments, the
school system and other agencies
through several meetings since June
for the vaccination.
"I think that preparations are going
very well," said Blackmon. We have
been working with community part-
ners as well as the school system and
local governments to prepare for a
mass HINI vaccinauon campaign.
. When the vaccine is ready. we will be
ready."
Suwannee County has five con-
firmed cases of the virus. Two were
confirmed Friday, with three in Jul\.
Vaccinations will begin with five
priority groups, said Blackmon
Pregnant women
First responders and health care
providers
Care givers of infants less than six
months of age
Children ages six months to 24
months
People 25 to 64 years of age who
have a chronic medical condition.
Blackmon said those not in the pri-
ority groups will be able to receive
vaccination after all those in the group
have received theirs, and as vaccine
becomes available.
Blackmon said there will be several
"points of dispersement" where people
can receive the vaccine at certain
times through a 12-week campaign.
Those p.o.d.s will be released at a lat-
er date when they are confirmed.


Shots will also be available at all area
schools on a consent basis.
Blackmon said those with flulike
symptoms should stay home and away
from others.
"Sometimes people try to go to
work and tough it out when they are
sick, but this isn't the time to try to be
tough," said Blackmon. "If you have
H1N1 symptoms, just go home."
City Administrator Bob Farley said
thanks to the health department, City
Hall and its employees are well versed
on the symptoms and are able to help
fight the spread of the virus.
"The cits is ver. prepared." said
Farley. "Based on the recommenda-
tions from the Centers for Disease
Control and the health department, the
city is very prepared We hate taken
steps to inform all employees of the
exposure of the trusts "
Farle% said the cm. uses hand sani-
tizers and a b horne jantizing equip-
ment
About 25 percent of people that
have been sick \ ith the virus s also ex-
perience vomiting and diarrhea. Some
people \\tth this \irus \ ill
not hae all of these mptoms,. but
may onl have fe\er and cough or
fever and sore throat.
"If you are at high risk for influenza
complications and develop these
symptoms, please contact \our health
care provider as soon as possible and
follow theiri directions," said Black-
mon.

Home sales remain


slow in Suwannee


Despite 9.6%
gain across
the nation

By Carnell
Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne
@gaflnews.com

Home sales jumped 9.6
percent nationwide in July,
according to. figures re-
leased Wednesday by the
U.S. Department of Com-
merce, but the housing
market here hasn't fol-
lowed suit, according to
Suwannee County Property
Appraiser Lamar Jenkins.
"They're slow," Jenkins
said simply of home sales
in Suwannee.
Tentative figures from'
Jenkins' office showed that
63 homes had been sold lo-
cally between Jan. 1 and
May 1. During the same
period last year; that num-
ber reached 73, property
records showed.
"From what we've
looked at, we don't see any
major changes," said an ap-
praisal assistant..
The most recent "North
Florida Forecaster"
newsletter published by the
Lake City Board of Real-
tors, showed that 'for the
month of July, 34 single-
family, site-built homes
had been sold in Suwannee
and Columbia .'counties
combined. Nine of those
were in Live Oak, said Ani-
ta Handy, the board's presi-
dent. A year earlier, in July
2008, the combined num-
ber of home. sales for the
two counties reached 28.
There again, only nine
were recorded for Suwan-
nee.
The Realtors board re-
ported and Handy agrees
that "on average homes
have sold for substantially
lower prices this year than


last." The average home
went for $136,500 in July
2009, compared t>
$141,500 in July 2008.
That was nearly a four per-
cent decrease, according to
the report.
"Buyers are looking for
deals, and with the prices
so low, it is a great time to
buy," Handy said.
Locally, however, many
people are struggling -to


stay afloat during the re-
cession and can't take on
the added mortgage, said
Dennis Cason, President of
the Suwannee County Eco-
nomic Alliance.
"Sometimes that's a plus
for people with deep pock-
ets," he said, but "most
people are just trying to
make a living, maintain on
their job and hold off on
buying a home."


Camp Weed hosts

retreat for

wounded veterans

War heroes to be given
:quilts blessed by priests
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com

Veterans wounded in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
will get the chance this weekend to relax and reflect as
they take part in a special three-day retreat held at the
Episcopal Diocese of Florida's Camp Weed and Cerve-
ny Conference Center in Live Oak,
The event, which begins today and continues through
Sunday, will provide recreation and spiritual refresh-
ment to 31 soldiers wounded by war.
While at the camp, the "Wounded Warriors" will be
given more than 40 guilts made especially for them by
the Piecemakers, a quilt making ministry of St. Mark's
'Episcopal Church in Ortega.
"The Reverend David Killeen, associate rector of St.
Mark's Episcopal Church and director of the retreat,
said 'the Piecemakers believe that quilt-making, which
is a process of taking fragments of cloth and turning
.them into a work of art, is an ideal metaphor for spiri-
tual wholeness and renewal,'" according to an event re-
lease.
The quilts that will be given to the veterans have been
prayed over and blessed by The Rev. Charles L. Keyser,
retired Episcopal Bishop for the Armed Forces who also
served in Vietnam.

think they are trying to do a
good job," Lacquey said by
phone Wednesday. "But
what they've got to do is
make some hard decisions
like we have to in private
businesses."
Lacquey gathered sup-
port by publishing a paid
letter in the Suwannee De-
mocrat in July expressing
his opposition to any tax
increase and urging com-
missioners to keep the tax
rate the same.
He asked citizens to sign
and return the letters to him
so he could present them to
commissioners. Lacquey
had more than 800 signed
letters a month ago (a fig-
ure verified by the Democ-
rat).
Lacquey and his son-in-
law Alex Winnett attended
every county commission
meeting for weeks and ad-.
dressed the board about
their concerns.
"I would have to say that
going up there numerous
times and sending letters
helped a bit," said Lacquey.
Brian Metts told com-
missioners at Tuesday
night's hearing his concern
was with the lack of indus-
try in the county.
"You guys need to bring
in more businesses and rev-
enues," he said. "If we
don't make it a business-
friendly community,
where's our kids going to
work."
Commission Chairman
Jesse Caruthers said the
county is taking steps in
that direction. Caruthers


cited as an example the
Catalyst Project, an inter-
local project that will con-
vert 100 acres near the 1-10
and U.S. 90 corridor into a
shovel-ready site for in-
vestors. The county recent-
ly purchased the land. The
new prison on US 90 East
and the expansion of Pil-
grim's Pride in 2006 was a
step forward as well,
Caruthers said.
"It's the little things that
turn into great things," he
said.
Commissioner Wesley
Wainwright said the board
is fully aware of the chal-
lenges it faces.
"This board has made a
commitment," said Wain-
wright. "They understand a
need to bring in a tax base
and spread the share (of
taxes) so homeowners
won't have to bear the bur-
den."
Metts said he appreciates
the job the commissioners
are doing, but "if we're
hurting, the county will
hurt."
Metts complained that
most investors settle for
Lake City and asked why.
Commissioner Ivie
Fowler said it was all about
money.
"Our budget is $48 mil-
lion and Lake City's is over
$100 million. We can't
compete," said Fowler.
"You can't compete with
money if you don't have
money."
Commissioners will for-
mally set the millage rate
and final budget Sept. 21 at
5:15 p.m. at Live Oak City
Hall.

"It was not an issue here
at our school," Moseley
said.
The picture was much
different at Suwannee Ele-
mentary School.
There, 84 absences were
reported.
"That may be a little

School officials at

ford Elementary could not
be reached Wednesday.
However, at Suwannee
High, there wasn't much
success at tuning in to the
speech.
As expected, limited
television access prevented
the President from being
heard schoolwide, said
Principal Dawn Lamb.
That didn't stop some
teachers, however, from
accessing a taped copy of
the speech to use as a
teaching tool, Lamb said.
"They're having much
more success with it to-
day," said Lamb Wednes-
day. She added, "Some
teachers will use it for goal
setting, and language arts-
type speech lessons."

Who. Yes, the people of
Dr. Seuss fame. Sixty-
something in football is a
bit of a rout.
The fantasy football

Michael Vick will be
playing football again. He
has paid his debt to


society and goes back to
his job in the NFL. Before
being so understanding,
Vick could not have
returned to his old job had
he been a: school teacher,

stephenie.livirtgston@gaflnews.com
The Buccaneers were hit by the flu this
week and many players were forced to
miss practice. "We have been missing 3-
4 kids a day," said Coach Bill Wiles.
However, Wiles says his team is still
practicing hard to correct mistakes made
in last week's game and become a more
disciplined team against a powerful
Trenton team.
"We are also not playing as physical
and tough as I thought we would. maybe
my expectations for this team were too
high. The kids are working hard, right

now as the heat has increased our mental ,
toughness is being challenged," said
Wiles.
Trenton's powerful offense may pose a
problem this Friday night for Branford's
.defense. "Trenton has a fine team. We
are working on defending their option
game. We also have to prepare for their
power attack as well as there shot gun
offense. They present a lot of problems
for our defense, That is my biggest
concern right now," said Wiles.
Wiles said the players were diagnosed
with a standard strain of the flu, not the
H1N1 virus, or swine flu.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. in Trenton.

Action back on track this Saturday at Volusia Speedway Park


Fans and drivers alike
were disappointed in last
Saturday's night
postponement of the
Labor Day Late Model
Shootout but are eagerly
looking forward to this
Saturday's night action
when the show will go on.
"We had no choice but
to postpone," said General
Manager Tonya Moschell.
"We just had to much rain
and it was impossible to
give the drivers the racing


surface they deserved for
this show. So all the
officials and myself
decided it was better to
postpone until this
weekend."
Headlining Saturday's
show will be the Labor
Day Late Model Shootout
with the United Dirt Late
Model Challenge Series in
the house. Drivers will go
for $3000 to win. Plus the
Street Stocks, Sportsman
and two features for the


Mini Stocks, each for
$500 to win, are on the
race program.
Jason Fitzgerald is
currently the points leader
for the Untied Dirt Late
Model Challenge Series
with 2720 points. Right
behind Fitzgerald is Mark
Whitener, who has a few
wins under his belt
already. Whitener won the
season opener at Ocala
Speedway on February
28th, East Alabama Motor


Speedway on April 18,
and North Florida
Speedway on May 2.
Third in points is
returning 2008 Champion
Johnny Collins with 2680
points followed by Dill6n
Wood with 2250 points


and topping off the top
five is Russell Brown Jr.
with 2080 points. All these
drivers and a host of more
will be at Volusia on
Saturday night.
Fans last saw the United
Dirt Late Model


Challenge Series drivers at
Volusia on June 27 for the
Scott Thompson
Memorial. Ivedent Lloyd
topped the field followed

Then again none of these

dollars a year.
Plaxico Burress will
spend two years in jail
honing his skills on how
to obey rules. Especially
the.kind that pertain to
law. As a player he broke
most of the rules like


showing up on time, doing
required team activities
and going to practice. He
took these habits into the
real world where speed
limits, car insurance, bad
checks and carrying a gun
were for other people, not
hAn. He has proven
himself not to be above
the law. For those who
think the sentence a bit
tough, would you feel the
same way if it were a
kindergarten teacher that
had brought her gun to
school and accidentally


shot herself?
Baseball playoffs are
three weeks away. Yes
there is a World Series, it
just takes forever to get
here. Remember when
they played during the day
and it was over by the
second week of October?

Shaun Daugharty currently
leads the points in the
Sportsman division followed by
Alan Peacock, Garret Stewart,

the Street Stocks points and has
been very hard to beat this year.
Following Grady Christian is
Charlie Macnichol, Steve
Mooers, Bubba Christian and
Phil Brown.
The Mini Stocks have not
raced since July 25 so they are
definitely ready for double

Underwood across the
checkered was Calvin Christian,
Steve Mooers, Jared Allison

night on dirt) and Tony White.
Allison, who runs a Super Late

Goodness

The sixth virtue mentioned'by St. Paul as a fruit of the spirit is
goodness, a translation of the Greek work"agathosune" derived from
agathos, meaning.good. (Galatians 5:22) This type of goodness is
perhaps best expressed by the notion )
of being virtuous or doing good to,
and for others. We exemplify this .
virtue when we help someone across
the street or donate money to a ,
charity. But of course, we also
manifest goodness in our daily
interactions with others, such as when
we speak kindly to people and try our
best to help them. A person who tries
to be good in every aspect of their life
is following the path of virtue and is .
truly a child of God. We rightly think of
God as someone who is good all the
time, unlike His children, who struggle
mightily with a variety of temptations.
And, this goodness or virtue, or goodwill, is really the only thing that
is unconditionally good. Every other virtue, if combined with a bad
will, becomes bad. Intelligence is good, but if used by someone with
bad intentions, it becomes depraved. Likewise, wealth can be a good
thing if used for good ends, but, when used by someone with evil
intent, wealth becomes a means of advancing evil. Only goodness, or
a good will, is good in and of itself.


Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good
and right and true), and try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.


R.S.V. Ephesians 5:8-10

Question:


Are we living "story-worthy" lives?


By Derek Maul
- www.DEREK
MAUL.net ..

Only be careful, and
watch yourselves
closely so that you do I
not forget the things -
your eyes have seen or
let them slip from your
heart as long as you
live. Teach them to your children and to
their children after them. Deuteronomy
4:9 1
When our nieces and nephews were
very young, story-time with "Aunt
'Bekah" was the favored after-bath-and-
brushed-teeth treat before settling down
for the night. "Can we read a story on the
most-comfortable-bed-in-the-world,"; .
they'd say, then race to the book shelf to


select something wondrous.
Today they range from six to 14, but
no-one is quite ready to let go of the ritual
yet. Story-time isn't limited to picture
books; the children want to hear
adventures-that include their dad and their
aunts and uncles too.
They love to hear the old favorites over
and over:
Such as the time uncle Joe blew up a
large retaining wall by pouring gasoline
in the cracks to force out the ants so he
could smash them with a hammer. The
plan worked just fine until the wall
became saturated with gas and the
hammering inevitably generated a spark!
* Or the time their dad's experiment with
home-made explosions (yes, there's a
theme here) literally melted the front of
his prescription glasses and he tried to
walk past his parents with a bright red


face and huge raccoon circles around his
eyes as if nothing had happened.
There's a connection and a depth of
relationship that forms via family stories
that can't be achieved any other way;
huddled up together on the bed, or the
sofa, or around the table after a meal.
We pull out photographs and talk about
history, asking, "Who knows who this
is?" before filling in the details. Great-
uncle Pete, who died in WW2 when his
boat was torpedoed in the North Atlantic.
Grandma Nell, pictured sitting on the
knee of a Civil War veteran in the ancient
photo on the trunk. John Duncan, who
didn't steal a horse (the story behind that
fact is awesome) and the unfortunate
Tennessee relative who did (her story is
very sad)....
Here's a thought. Consider this when
you have time to spend with your own


children (whatever age), your nieces and
nephews, your spouse, or an elderly
relative.... Are the things we invest our
time in story-worthy? Might this
occasion, or visit, or excursion, or day
around the house, ever be retold on
someone's "most comfortable bed in the
world"? Or when your picture is sitting
on some shelf thirty years hence?
Are we living "story-worthy" lives?

By Rev. James L. Snyder

Last Tuesday I was sulk-
ing around the house com-
plaining about the passing
of the summer and how it
goes by so fast. Personally,
I think I have a. right to
complain in my own
house. After all, I pay the
mortgage, the taxes and the
utilities, that is, when I
think of it. The only thing I
do not pay, istattention to
the Gracious Mistress of
the Parsonage, which has
cost me a lot more than the
mortgage, taxes and utili-
ties put together.
I was pensively,looking
out the back sliding glass
door muttering to myself-
and indulging in full-
fledged sulkiness without
realizing my wife was in
the same room.
"My stars," she said, "if
you didn't have anything
to complain about, you'd
complain about that."
Turning around I saw
her standing there staring
at me with both hands
firmly placed on her hips.


From her countenance, I
knew that had not heard
her last word on the sub-
ject.
"Don't you know," she
said, "that time marches on
and we need to be thankful
for that."
"Yes," I said rather wist-
fully, "I know time march-
es on but couldn't it just
take a rest every once in a
while and allow me to
catch up? Even the calen-
dar takes an extra day
every four years to get
caught up."
After a brief moment,
my wife broke the silence
and said, "What would you
do if you ever did catch
up?"
Well, she had me there. I
can vaguely remember
once in the mid-80s when. I
did actually catch up, but a
lot of good it did me.' I am
further behind now than
.ever. .
I wonder if anybody re-
ally does catch up with
time. Good old Father
Time has a way of march-
ing on and on without


stopping for anyone. Some
talk affectionately about
Mother Nature but itis Fa-
ther Time we have to look
out for.
It is not so much catch-
ing up with Father Time,
but rather, it is when Father
Time catches up with us.
Just look at all those wrin-
kles on our face; you can
be sure Mother Nature did
not carve them into our
faces.
'My wife's comment set
me to thinking. What
would I do if I ever were
caught up with everything?
Of course, there is always
the probability that if I
ever did catch up with time'
I would be so happy, and
celebrate so much that it
would not be long before I
was behind the times
again.-
Many people take great
pride in being on top of
things and ahead of the
crowd and up with the'
times. They know the latest
happening and the latest
advance in technology 'and
take great pains and telling
everybody, me in particu-
lar, about it all. By the time


they finish explaining to
me the latest advance they
find themselves behind the
times and need'to catch up
again, which is an endless
and vicious cycle.
This brings me to my.
point. Why do I need to. be
caught up? What is the ad-'
vantage of being on top of
everything and knowing
the latest technological
doodad promoted on tele-
vision by some overrated
celebrity? What is the great
advantage?
Many people wear them-
selves out trying to keep
up with the Jones's when
they could just relax and
enjoy themselves. That is
my point. All this pressure
to keep up with the times
and with the Jones's has
just about worn me out.
The fact that I do not know
any Joneses hag made this
even more difficult.
As far as I am con-
cerned, there is nothing
wrong with the old ways.
Much that passes for
"new," today is nothing
more than a bad caricature
of something old. Some
people would just die if


: they were caught with
something old. But for me,
I would prefer things to
slow down just a little bit
so that I can savor the time.
I amnnot in any rush for
anything. I do not know
what people are hurrying to
do. There is so much rush-
ing here and rushing there
that by the time some peo-
ple get where they are sup-
posed to be: they are so out
of breath they cannot ap-
preciate where they are.
It used to be that people
would sit on their front
porch after supper, rock
and talk and rock some
more enjoying the fellow-
ship of solitude. I cannot
remember the last time I
saw a front porch. Every-
body is too busy to sit on
the front porch and watch
the world iush by.
A friend of mine used to
say, "You qnly pass this
way once, so enjoy the jour-
ney." Many; so anxious to
get where they are going,
they do not appreciate how
they got there. So focused,
are they on the destination,
they, fail to be grateful for
the scenery. Some people
are 'so anxious for tomor-
row that they cannot enjoy
.today.
Remember, today will be

the yesterday you will
think about tomorrow.
The Bible has much to
say on this subject. I partic-
ularly like this verse,
"Whereas ye know not
what shall be on the mor-
row. For what is your life?
It is even a vapour, that ap-
peareth for a little time, and
then vanisheth away. For
that ye ought to say, If the
Lord will, we shall live,
and do this, or that" (James
4:14-15 KJV).
Enjoy today because to-
morrow is never certain for
anyone.

GAME OF THE WEEK

North Carolina at Connecticut


They could be contenders


A Ilthough a regular-season basketball game between
k the two schools would probably generate more
Nationwide interest, the significance of Saturday's
North Carolina-Connecticutmatchup should not be lost on
the college football universe.
The Tar Heels showed that they were capable of living
up to their lofty No. 21 ranking in the preseason AP poll
and competing for the Atlantic Coast Conference champi-
onship with this past Saturday's 40-6 win over The Citadel.
It was one of the few highlights of an opening weekend
that saw ACC teams compile a 4-6 mark against nonconfer-
'ence competition.
Connecticut's football program has flirted with national
prominence in recent years, claiming a share of the Big
East championship in 2007 and climbing as high as No.
12 in the polls. Still, respectability has typically eluded the
conference during the BCS era.
The team that emerges victorious from Connecticut's
Rentschler Field can start eyeing a run toward a league
championship and a big-dollar bowl berth, while the loser
and its conference brethren will have to endure the criti-
cism that comes with an automatic spot in the BCS.
Records: North Carolina 1-0 (0-0 ACC Coastal); Con-
necticut li' (0-,0 Big Ea-st. Coaches: North Carolina's

New coaches
Having breezed to convincing victories in. their
respective season-openers, the next step in the
rebuilding projects at Mississippi State and Auburn
will come in the form of Saturday's Southeastern Confer-
ence-opener at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Unlike Auburn's decision to bring Gene Chizik back
to the Plains, Mississippi State's hiring of former Florida
offensive coordinator Dan Mullen was lauded. The Bull-
dogs faithful are hoping that Mullen's offensive philosophy
can also lead to a culture shift within a program that has
spent the majority of this decade in mediocrity.
Auburn officials felt that Chizik's 5-19 record over the
previous two seasons as Iowa State's head coach was not
a true indication of his talent All's well after a 37-13 win
over Louisiana Tech, but a setback to the Bulldogs could
add more credence to the theory that Chizik is just a good
assistant coach who capitalized on the success of the
Tigers' undefeated team in 2004 and Texas' 2005 national
championship squad.
Records: Mississippi State 1-0 (0-0'SEC West); Auburn
1-0 (0-0 SEC West). Coaches: Mississippi State's Dan
Mullen (1-0); Auburn's Gene Chizik (6-19). Series: Auburn
leads 57-23-2. Kickoff: 6 p.m. CT Saturday. TV: Fox Sports
Net
Keys for Mississippi State: Will running back Anthony
Dixon make up for lost time after being suspended for this
past Saturday's 45-7 win over Jackson State?.... Clean it
up. The Bulldogs lost 152 yards on 12 penalty flags in the
season-opener.
Keys for Auburn: Convert scoring opportunities and
avoid crucial turnovers. Auburn, which committed two
fumbles against Louisiana Tech, missed two field goals last
year and attempted to fumble away its 3-2 win over Missis-
sippi State.... Keep the Mississippi State receivers under
wraps. Jackson.State may have given up three passing .
touchdowns, but-the Bulldogs did not have a completion
over 19 yards and averaged just 6.9 yards per attempt

REST OF THE MATCHUPS
Troy at Florida
Records: Troy 0-1 (0-0 Sun Belt); Florida 1-0 (0-0 SEC
East). Coaches: Troy's Larry Blakeney (144-74-1); Florida's
Urban Meyer (84-17). Series: Florida leads 1-0. Kickoff:
12:21 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: SEC Network.
Keys for Troy: Find the early form that it had against
Bowling Green. The Trojans jumped outto a 14-0'lead on.
the strength of two scoring drives that totaled 18 plays
and 169 yards before falling 31-14.... Compete in the
trenches. Troy, which ranked third and fourth, respec-
tively, in the country in sacks and tackles for loss in 2008,
limited Bowling Green to 55 rushing yards.
Keys for Florida: Dictate the tempo. All seven of the
offense's scoring drives in this past week's 62-3 win over
Charleston Southern ttok less than 2:45 with the final four
drives averaging seven plays.... Don't dig too deep into
the playbook and keep Tennessee guessing in its prepara-
tion for the conference-opener.

Records: UC L. 1-0 (0-0 Pac-10); Tennessee 1-0 (0-0 SEC
East). Coaches: UCLA's Rick Neuheisel (71-38); Tennes-
see's Lane Kiffin (1-0). Series: Tennesse leads 7-5-2..
Kickoff: 4 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: ESPN.
Keys for UCLA: Secondary play. Rahim Moore claimed
Walter Camp Foundation Defensive Player of the Week
honors after intercepting three passes in this past Satur-
day's 33-14 win over San Diego State..... Have freshman


IAustraon 2 zuus 9ruce ranme (pianteinu.com)



out to impress
quarterback Kevin Prince prepared to handle the noise
generated by a sold-out Neyland Stadium crowd.
Keys for Tennessee: Balance. Tennessee's 657 yards of
total offense in this past Saturday's 63-7 win over Western
Kentucky was the school's best performance in nearly
12 years.... Don't settle for field goals. The Volunteers
,missed two field goals exceeding 50 yards and failed to
convert a 34-yarder in overtime of last year's 27-24 setback
to the Bruins.
Vanderbilt at LSU
Records: Vanderbilt 1-0 (0-0 SEC East) LSU 1-0 (0-0 SEC
West). Coaches: Vanderbilt's Bobby JoArson (88-92);
LSU's Les Miles (71-32). Series: LSU leads 20-7-1. Kickoff:
6 p.m. CT Saturday. TV: ESPNU.
Keys for Vanderbilt: Duplicate its success on the
ground. Vanderbilt had its best rushing performance in at
least 28 years with 433 yards in the season-opening 45-0
win over Western Carolina.... Contain LSU receivers
Brandon LaFell and Terrance Toliver, who had 117 yards
and two touchdowns on four grabs in this past Saturday's
31-23 win at Washington.
Keys for LSU: Win on third down. Western Carolina
failed to confer t on any of its 13 third-down opportunities,
while Washington was 11-for-19 on third down against the
Tigers.... Generate some heat on the quarterback. LSU
let the Huskies' Jake Locker throw for 325 yards on 25-of-
45 passing and registered only one sack.
Florida International at Alabama
Records: Florida International 0-0 (0-0 Sun Belt); Alabama
1-0 (0-0 SEC West). Coaches: Florida International's Mario
Cristobal (6-18); Alabama's Nick Saban (111-50-1). Series:
Alabama leads 1-0. Kickoff: 6 p.m. CT Saturday. TV: Pay-
per-view.
Keys for Florida International: Improve on a rushing
attack that ranked 107th nationally among Football Bowl
Subdivision teams last year. .. Force new Alabama quar-
terback Greg McElroy to be more than a game manager
who makes the occasional big throw.
Keys for Alabama: Continue to move the chains. The
Crimson Tide collected 498 yards of total offense and held
the ball for 37:02 in its 34-24 win over Virginia Tech....
Sound special teams play. The Crimson Tide capitalized
on a fumbled Virginia Tech kickoff return in the fourth
quarter, but the Hokies also scored on a 98-yard kickoff
return.
South Carolina at Georgia
Records: South Carolina 1-0 (0-0 SEC East); Georgia 0-1
(0-0 SEC East). Coaches: South Carolina's Steve Spurrier
(171-62-2); Georgia's Mark Richt (82-23). Series: Georgia
leads 45-14-2. Kickoff: 7 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: ESPN.
Keys for South Carolina: The Gamecocks cannot
continue to squander red-zone opportunities and third-
down.chances like they did in the season-opening win over
North Carolina State.... The defense, which registered
six sacks and held the Wolfpack'to 133 total yards, must
deliver a devastating blow to a struggling Georgia offense
early in the game.
Keys for Georgia: Get touches for sophomore standout
wide receiver AJ. Green, who collected only 52 yards on,
four receptions in this past week's 24-10 loss to Oklahoma
State.... Compensate for the loss of standout offensive
tackle Trinton Sturdivant The 2007 Freshman All-American
will miss afiother season after suffering a torn left anterior
cruciate ligament in the third quarter against the Cowboys.

'set new career highs with
150 yards and 26 carries in this past
Saturday's 34-24 win over Virginia

against Loyola on Nov. 21, 1936.
M IDA Senior Brandon oames
"p-- recorded the school's first
kickoff return for a touchdown in nearly
10 years with 5:24 left in the second
quarter of this past Saturday's 62-3 win
over Charleston Southern. James and
Harvin Clark (1969-71) are the only
two players in program history to score
on a punt return and a kickoff return.
The Bulldogs suffered their
first season-opening loss
in 12 years and fell to 1-5-1 against
top-10 teams in openers with this past
Saturday's 24-10 setback at Oklahoma
State. Although the opportunities have
been limited, Georgia has not won a
season-opener outside the South since a
32-19 victory at Villanova in 1953.
mnMY The Wildcats claimed
m e their 15th consecutive
nonconference victory and the
program's first shutout-since Nov. 16,
1996, this past Saturday with a 42-0
victory over Miami (Ohio) at Cincinnati's
Paul Brown Stadium. It was Kentucky's
largest victory in a season-opener since
a 42-0 win over Kent State 25 years ago.
The Tigers survived the longest
S road trip in program history and
extended the nation's longest active
winning streak in nonconference games
to 20 with this past Saturday's 31-23
win over Washington. The 2,550-mile
trip also marked LSU's first trip to
the West Coast since a 23-3 win over
Southern Cal in 1984.
mmfisISSIPPI Junior Pon Ingram
scored on a 38-yard
interception return and classmate
Johnny Brown contributed a team-
high 15 tackles and an interception in
Sunday's 45-14 win over Memphis. It
was Mississippi's sixth straight game
with multiple interceptions and second
straight game with an interception
return for a touchdown.
ami .S'TATE Led by quarterback
I Chris Relfs three
passing touchdowns and one rushing
touchdown, the Bulldogs snapped a
three-game losing streak in season-
openers with a 45-7 win over Jackson
State. Relf became the first Mississippi
State quarterback in six years to throw
for three scores and add another on the
ground.
Senior linebacker Eric
010MOLINA Norwood moved into
second place on the school's all-time
sacks list with two in the Gamecocks' 7-3
win at North Carolina State on Sept. 3.
Norwood has 24 career sacks, which puts
him 2 sacks away from tying Andrew
Provence's school record.
EUi Sr Quarterback Jonathan
Crompton had a banner
day with a career-high 21 completions
and a career-best five touchdowns in this
past Saturday's 63-7 win over Western
Kentucky. Crompton never threw more
than four touchdown passes in any of his
first three seasons as a Volunteer.
t ERILT The Commodores
UEHIM I ~claimed their third
straight season-opener and posted a
shutout for the first time in nearly 10
years with this past Saturday's 45-0
victory over Western Carolina. It was
Vanderbilt's first shutout since a 58-0
win over The Citadel on Oct. 9, 1999.

Dear Classified Guys,
I've always lived in the part of the
country that gets snow. Not just a
dusting, but serious snow that clos-
es roads and requires one to shovel
out to find the car. Then I moved
south. These people don't know
what snow is. When they see snow
flakes fall from the sky, schools
close, bread and milk sell out and
people cancel everything. Last year
when we got an inch of snow, people
were offering to buy my 4-wheel
drive car at the gas station. At that
time I wasn't selling it, but now I am.
Unfortunately, it's nothing but hot
weather for the next few
months. Since people '..
around here are so crazy
when it comes to winter,
I'm wondering if it pays to
hang on to the car until snow
season. Do you think I could get a
lot more for a 4-wheel drive car if I
wait until wintertime?
Carry: As most salespeople would
tell you, selling for the best price is
strictly a function of demand. When
ihe weather's hot, air conditioners can
!sell out. Try to sell one in the middle of
winter and you'll be waiting for the
telephonee to ring.


Duane "Cast
& Todd




Cash: Four-wheel drive vehicles
may have been standard equipment
where you previously lived, but in a
southern climate they probably won't
see much snow.
Carry: However, you may find that
selling now is not going to make a dif-
ferertce in your price. People choose
their vehicles for any number of rea-
sons. Some want a 4-wheel drive for
snow. Others want to tow a trailer or
just want the capability of driving off-
road.
Cash: Many buyers choose their car
more by its features than the drive train.
A car in good shape with a nice radio,
good air conditioning or even extra cup

holders may prove to sell better.
Carry: In short, the decision on
when to sell your car is more dependent
on your circumstances than the time of
year. If you have already bought another
car or don't need this one, then selling
now may be the best choice. Besides,
paying car insurance for an unused
vehicle would negate any additional
value you could get at a later date.
Cash: So while it's possible you
may fetch a better price for your 4-
wheel drive when the flurries fly, its
probably not worth holding out that
long. However, if you have any unused
air conditioners, now maybe a good
time to advertise them for sale!

Traction Control
According to a recent survey, only
about 18% of 4-wheel drive owners
ever use their vehicle to go off-road.
Most simply like the idea of having the
added traction for rain, sleet or snow.
However, the performance of many 4-
wheel drive vehicles isn't all that it's
cracked up to be. Comparison tests
performed by automotive enthusiast
magazines found that most 2WD drive
vehicles with snow tires on all four
wheels can outperform a 4WD vehicle
with regular tires in snowy conditions.
Reinventing the Wheel
While historians can debate the true
origin of the 4-wheel drive, it is com-
monly sited that the first vehicle of its
kind dates back to 1900 and was
designed by Ferdinand Porsche
(founder of Porsche cars). His design
was not the mechanical 4-wheel drive
systems like today, but instead had four
electric hub motors, one on each wheel,
powered by a generator from the
engine. While the idea never took off,
it did surface many years later when
NASA used a similar design to put its
lunar vehicle into motion.

E SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK


Under the Weather
My wife and I haven't been shop-
ping for a new car in quite a while, so
prices were.a bit surprising to us.
Unfortunately, we picked the hottest
day of the year to visit the dealership.
Outside in the sun, we were bak-
ing, and apparently we weren't the
only ones. After we stepped inside to
look at a new model, another cus-
tomer came in with a salesman, start-
ed to wobble and fainted right on the
showroom floor.
The salesman looked confused,
glanced our way and asked if we
knew what happened. I told him it
must have been the weather, but my
wife had a different idea. Looking
up from the new car, she whispered.
"It's not the heat. He probably just
had sticker shock!"
(Thanks to Benny H.)



This snow-going Subaru
lives solely in the present.

Self-taught artist O.L. Samuels to



speak at Gadsden Arts Center


QUINCY-Meeting artist
O.L. Samuels is an
experience not to be
missed. At the age of 78,
he has a spring to his step
and a sparkle in his eye.
Samuels has a charismatic
zest for life and a
wonderful sense of humor,
both of which come
through in his fantastic,
spirited, imaginary
sculptures of animals and
other creatures, like
"Godzilla", a smiling,
colorful, 7-foot-tall female
figure with long arms and
fangs, "whose husband
lives in Atlanta", according
to Samuels. The artist has
been featured in numerous
magazine articles and
books about "self-taught"
and "folk" artists, and has
work in the collections of
the Smithsonian Museum
of American Art, Arkansas
Art Center, and Gadsden
Arts Center, and numerous
private collections. O.L:
Samules will give a talk
about his life and work at
the Gadsden Arts Center on
Thursday, September 24 at
3pm. Everyone is
welcome, and admission is
just $1.
O.L. Samuels was born
in Wilcox County, Georgia,
on Nov. 18th, 1931.
Samuels left home when he
was eight years old and
worked various odd jobs
around the country
including working as a


farmer, professional boxer,
and tree surgeon. While
working as a tree surgeon
in 1982, Samuels was
seriously injured and had
to spend his lengthy
recovery in a wheelchair.
The accident sent him into
a deep depression, until he
remembered his
grandmother's advice to
carve wood whenever he
was down. This, and the
sale of a sculpture by
Visual Arts Director Jane
Simpson, of the Colquitt
County Arts Center
(Moultrie, GA), was the
beginning of Samuel's
artistic career.
Samuels works mainly
with found wood objects
such as tree trunks, roots
and old wood furniture,
which he will carve for
months at a time. The artist
paints his sculptures with a
secret concoction of paint,
glitter, sawdust and glue
that he warms on the stove.
Although color-blind,
Samuels paints several
layers of wild, expressive
colors, using "every color
so he doesn't leave any
out". Samuels is known for
his imaginary images,
dreamlike figures, and
mythical creatures, each of
which comes with a story
about its existence.
Samuels' obvious
preference is to carve
images of horses, which he
says are "the most prideful

his work has a spiritual
message, as Samuels
became a la) nunister later
in life.
O.L. Samuels no%\ lives
in Tallahassee with his
wife, using his living room

considered one of the most
talented self-taught artists
in America by museums

Art Museum. Samuels'
presentation is one of

GAINESVILLE-Award-
winning Southern
landscape artist Linda
Blondheim is among the
artists selected to
participate in "Painting the
Region: The Bartram Trail,"
a five-day, juried event that
will take place Oct. 6-10 in
Northern St. Johns County.
Artists will paint "en
plain air" French for "in
open air" as they rotate
between four locations
along the William Bartram
Scenic and Historic
Highway, State Road 13,
five miles south of
Mandarin and Julington
Creek in the communities
of Fruit Cove, St. Johns and
Switzerland, Fla.
The area, part of a much
longer "Bartram Trail,"
commemorates John and
William Bartrams' time in
St. Johns County during
their extensive explorations
of the Southeast between
1765 and 1774.
Proceeds from the event
will benefit the North
Florida Land Trust and the
St. Johns Cultural Council.
"I have a deep love for
Florida, being a Florida
Cracker," says Blondheim,
who co-founded Plein Air
Florida and organized the
very first paint-out in
Florida at Ozello in 2001. "I
love the culture of North
Florida -- its cuisine, being
a chef, and its land."
Blondheim has painted
professionally for more
than 30 years, at times
supporting herself in jobs as
a professional caterer and
chef. She is passionate
about the state and has
shared her talent and
Enthusiasm for the outdoors
as a signature member of

as well as Plein Air

Art, The American Artist
Bluebook and Marquis

Her work is often
described as painterly or as
representational painting.
Sometimes she is referred
to as a' representational
expressionist or an
American Impressionist.
She enjoys plein air
painting fall through spring,
during the mild Florida
climate, and enjoys
traveling throughout the
South to capture the beauty
found in each state.
Although some of Linda's
work is done en plein air,
she also enjoys. working
from plein air studies and
photographs to complete
larger works in the studio.
Her paintings are found in
private and corporate
collections throughout the
United States.
Whether she focuses on
landscapes, rivers and
lakes, or, in her new series,
Florida Farms and Ranches,
Blondheim throws her skill
into artistically capturing
and preserving the South in
which she was born, has
raised her daughters and
works as a self-supporting
artist.
Blondheim holds a BFA
degree from the University
