Blueberries aren't the only things that grow


As Maurice was building and growing his
collection, he was learning all he could
about the 40,000 plus species of orchids
with 100 species native to Florida.
Maurice has been growing orchids for 55
years and says, 'I am still learning.'

By Bonnie Scott
Wellborn is not only home of the Blueberry Festival, an
annual event held the first weekend in June, it is also the
home of Geiger Orchids, a greenhouse paradise grown and
owned by Maurice and Ann Geiger. The Geigers are
descendents of generations of North Floridians most of
whom settled in and around Suwannee County and were a
part of the history of this area. Maurice's great-great
grandfather was Senator George McClellan from
Coltimbia County who helped write Florida's state
constitution. His father and mother were teachers in the
public school system and his father also became a school
principal. Ann's father worked in construction and
farming, and later retired from his position as mail clerk at
the Veteran's Administration in Lake City. Maurice and
Ann live today in the family home where Maurice was
born.
At the age of 16, Maurice put his entrepreneurial skills
to work and ordered a $50 course on growing orchids. The
course came with four orchid plants, three of which
survived and started his business. He began by growing
.his orchids on tables in the dining room windows. After a.
year, he needed more space and built a 4 by 8 foot house
that he could cover and heat to protect the orchids. The will see cattle
house grew to 6 by 12, then 13 by 15, and today he has orchid family

The Geigers have three grown daughters and two
grandchildren. Alice, their oldest, is a UF graduate and
employed with Donald Lee and Associates in Lake City.

gan, publisher, and Robert Bridges,

Friday's editions of the Democrat, is
formed by that board.


LETTER TO
THE EDITOR
To the Editor:
I am nobody, a child of the fifties.
Brought up to mind my manners and
respect my elders.
I was also taught that there are
some institutions you respect no
matter what.
You do not disrespect your elders,
your state's governor, your town's
mayor and especially your country's
President.
As a parent, grandparent and a
great -grandparent I have seen the
changes in manners and mores. Dis-
respect seems to be the way of the
world today. Yet I have always been
proud that at least as a country
American's still showed respect to
their leaders, no matter what.
Well, at least up until this last
week.
This week has been a major dis-
appointment to me and I hate to say
this but I am glad some well-known
people are not still here to see it.
First, where does ANYONE, get
off objecting to our President speak-
ing to the children of our country?
They can't vote but he is.still repre-
senting their rights. What the hell
were you afraid he would say?
This MAN is our PRESIDENT!
He is a father and the LEADER of
our country. How does anyone have
the gall to object? Would you have
objected if it were Bush, Clinton,
Carter or FDR? HELL no you
would not of objected, it would nev-.
er have entered your mind and if it
did everyone else would have said
"are you *crazy, it's the President".
SHAME ON THOSE PARENTS.
AND SCHOOL OFFICIALS!!
Then someone has the audacity to
call the PRESIDENT OF THE
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
OUR countries Commander and
Chief, a liar, in public, on TV, where
everyone in the world can see and
hear. Where did you think you were,
Taiwan, India, Pakistan, a small
African country, you sure weren't
thinking you were in the Capital
Building. At least I hope you don't
always act like that.
Senator, you should be morti-
fied!! I am mortified for you and for
the people you represent! SHAME
ON YOU!! I am sure you were not
raised to behave like that.
I AM MORTIFIED THAT THE
WORLD HAS SEEN WHAT HAS
BEEN GOING ON IN THE UNIT-
ED STATES OF AMERICA FOR
THIS LAST WEEK.
SHAME on those of you who de-
serve it!!

Instead of President Obama address-
ing school students across the nation, he
might have accomplished more by fo-
cusing his attention on the educational
rot in schools in the nation's capital. The
American Legislative Exchange Coun-
cil recently came out with their 15th edi-
tion of "Report Card on American Edu-
cation: A State-by-State Analysis. ""Aca-
demic achievement in no state is much
to write home about but in Washington,
D.C., by any measure, it approaches
criminal fraud. Let's look at the numbers.


A
MINORITY

VIEW



2009 Creators Syndicate
fALTER WILLIAMS


Only 14 percent of Washington's fourth-graders score at or
above proficiency in the reading and math portions of the Nation-
al Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) test. Their nation-
al rank of 51 makes them the nation's worst. Eighth-graders are
even further behind with only 12 percent scoring at or above pro-
ficiency in reading and 8 percent in math and again the worst per-
formance in the nation. One shouldn't be surprised by Washington
student performance on college admissions tests. They have an av-
erage composite SAT score of 925 and ACT score of 19.1, com-
pared to the national average respectively of 1017 and 21.1. In
terms of national ranking, their SAT and ACT rankings are identi-
cal to their fourth- and eighth-grade rankings -- dead last.
Washington's political and education establishment might ex-
cuse these outcomes by arguing that because most students are
black, the schools are underfunded and overcrowded. Let's look at
such a claim. During the 2006-07 academic year, expenditures per
pupil averaged $13,848 compared to a national average of $9,389.
That made Washington's per pupil expenditures the third highest
in the nation coming in behind New Jersey ($14,998) and New
York ($14,747). Washington's teacher-student ratio is 13.9 com-
pared with the national average of 15.3 students per teacher, rank-
ing 18th in the nation. What about teacher salaries? Washington's
teachers are the highest paid in the, nation, having an average an-
nual salary of $61,195 compared with the nation's average
$46,593. Despite the academic performance of Washington's stu-
dents, they have a graduation rate of 61 percent compared to the
national average of 70 percent. That suggests the issuance of
fraudulent high school diplomas.
Currently, Washington, D.C. has an Opportunity, Scholarship
Program, which allows qualified low-income families to claim up
to $7,500 per student toward a private education -of their choice.
Obama's Democratic Congress, acting on the behalf of the educa-
tion establishment, has killed the program and there's the possibil-
ity that the 1,700 students currently enrolled will have to return to
D.C. public schools.
The staunchest opponents of school choice are hypocrites. They
want, demand and can afford school choice for themselves but for
others not so affluent school choice it is a different matter. Presi-
dent and Mrs. Barack Obama enrolled their two daughters in


Washington's most prestigious Sidwell
Friends School, forking over $28,000 a
year for each girl. Whilst senator from Illi-
nois, the Obama's enrolled their girls in
the University of Chicago's Laboratory
School, a private school in Chicago charg-
ing almost $20,000 for each girl. A Her-
itage Foundation survey found that 37
percent of the members of the House of
Representatives and 45 percent of sena-
tors in the 110th Congress sent their chil-


dren to private schools. Public school
teachers enroll their own children in nonpublic schools to a much
greater extent than the general public, in some cases four and five
times greater. In Cincinnati, about 41 percent of public school
teachers' send their children to nonpublic schools. In Chicago it is
38 percent, Los Angeles 24 percent, New York 32 percent, and
Philadelphia 44 percent. The behavior of public school teachers is
quite suggestive. It's like my offering to take you to a restaurant
and you find out that neither the chef nor the waiters eat there,
That suggests they have some inside information from which you
might benefit.
For people in power to tolerate the Washington, D.C. school
system is despicable. For a black president to do so might qualify
as betrayal.

Celebrate the Constitution by becoming an activist


By John W. Whitehead
"I call not upon a
few, but upon all: not
.on this state or that
state, but on every .
state; up.and help us; ,,'
*lay your shoulders to
the wheel; better to
have too much force
than too.little, when so great an object is
at stake."--Thomas Paine, 1776
Federal law mandates that all high
schools, colleges and universities across
the country that receive federal funds
host educational events about the Consti-
tution on Constitution Day, September
17. There will also, be various festivities
in Washington, DC, and in some commu-
nities across America celebrating the
Constitution.
Yet we would do well to do more than
pay lip service to the Constitution once a
year. Formally adopted on September 17,
1787, it has long served as the bulwark
of American freedom and as an example
for struggling nations worldwide.
Unfortunately, the rights enshrined in
the Constitution are under constant at-
tack. In fact, the protections and limita-
tions on government power which were
once so greatly prized by America's
Founders seem to be rapidly disappear-
ing. Governmental tentacles now invade
every facet of our lives. The president
continues to expand his powers by cen-
tralizing power in his.own office. And
technology, which has developed at a
rapid pace, offers those in government
more invasive and awesome tools than
ever before.
As government invariably, perhaps in-
evitably, oversteps its authority, Ameri-
cans are faced with the pressing need to
maintain the Constitution's checks'
against governmental power and abuse.
After all, it was not idle rhetoric that
prompted the framers of the Constitution
to begin with the words "We the people."
If we are to maintain our freedoms,
"we the people" need to become activists,
even revolutionaries, for freedom. We
forget the country started with a revolu-
tion. However, speaking truth to power is
not an easy task. There can be no room
for timidity or lukewarm emotions. We
must meet the challenges of our day with
passion, dedication and courage. And we
must demand that our government re-


spect our rights. Here are a few sugges-.
tions:
1. Get educated. Most Americans are
largely uneducated about their constitu-
tional rights and liberties. Yet without
knowledge, very little can be accom-
plished. Thus, you must know your
rights. Take time to read the Constitution.
Study and understand history, because
the tales of those who seek power and
those who resist it are part of an age-old
story. Understand the vital issues of the
day so that you can be cognizant of the
threats to freedom. I emphasize with peo-
ple that the Bill of Rights is only 462
words. It takes about five minutes to read
if you are a slow reader. Know the Bill of
Rights and teach them to your children.
2. Get involved. Become actively in-
volved in local community affairs, poli-
tics and legal battles. Think nationally
but act locally. If our freedoms are to be
restored, taking action at the local level
must be the starting point. Getting in-
volved in local politics is one way to
bring about change.
Seek out every opportunity to voice
your concerns, and demand that your
government representatives account for
their actions. Be relentless. And recog-
nize that you don't have to go it alone.
Engage those around you in discussions
about issues of importance. Challenge
them to be part of a national dialogue.
And remember that those in power fear
and respect numbers. Thus, while one
person with a protest sign at a city plan-
nihg meeting may be an irritant, three in-
dividuals with the same sign at the very
same meeting constitute a movement.
3. Take action. Be prepared to mobilize
at a moment's notice. It doesn't matter
who you are, where you're located or
what resources are at your disposal. What
matters is that you recognize the prob-
lems and care enough to do something
about them. Whether you're 8, 28 or 88,
you have something unique to contribute.
You don't have to be a hero. You just
have to show up and be ready to take ac-
tion.
You can overcome the governmental
behemoth with enough cunning, skill and
organization. Play to your strengths and
assets. Conduct strategy sessions with
others to develop both the methods and
ways to force change. Be bold and imagi-
native, for this is guerilla warfare--not to


be fought with tanks and guns but
through creative methods of nonviolent
dissent and resistance.
Effective use of the media is essential.
Attracting media coverage not only en-
hances and magnifies your efforts. It is
also a valuable educational tool. It publi-
cizes your message to a much wider au-
dience. It is through the media--televi-
sion, newspapers, Internet sites, bloggers,
and so on--that people find out about
your growing resistance movement.
4. Don't back down. What was it that
led to the successful activist movements
of the past led by such people as Martin
Luther King Jr.? Resolve and the refusal
to be put off. When the time came, King
was willing to take to the streets for what
he believed and even go to jail if neces-
sary. King risked having an arrest record
by committing acts of nonviolent civil
disobedience. He was even willing to
sacrifice himself. Thus, if any movement
is to be truly successful, it must be
manned by individuals who seek a
greater good and do not waver from their
purposes. After all, freedom is not free.
There is always a price to be paid and a
sacrifice to be made.
5. Finally, keep hope alive. Although
vur rights are increasingly coming under
attack, we still have certain freedoms. We
can still fight back. We still have the
right to dissent, to protest and even to
vigorously criticize or oppose the gov-
ernment and its laws. The Constitution
guarantees us these rights. If you know
your rights, you can bring about change
in the government, but it will often mean
speaking out when others are silent. It
won't be easy, but take heart. And don't
give up.
Much like the colonists who dared to
stand up to Great Britain in 1776, we too
must confront the massive machinery of
government. They brought about a revo-
lution because of their courageous tenaci-
ty.. Likewise, if we are to pull through
these trying times with our freedoms in-
tact, it will take the dedication of each
and every one of us.
Time is of the essence.

unhurt


when


big-rig


hits car

Staff
A Branford teen escaped in-
jury Thursday when a big-rig
struck her car from behind on
,SR 247 in Columbia County,
Florida Highway Patrol reports
show.
Haley M. Stebbins, 16, was
southbound at about 12:12
p.m. when she slowed for traf-
fic turning left onto SW Dairy
Road. Troopers say Mitchell
Steele Jr., 48, of Lake City,
failed to control his Mack
truck and took evasive action
to avoid Stebbins' 2005 Chevy
two-door. A wheel Qn the trail-
er struck the right rear of the
Chevy, causing it to rotate
counterclockwise, said FHP.
Damage to Stebbins' vehicle
was estimated at $8,000. The
big-rig suffered no damage.
Both Stebbins and Steele
were wearing seatbelts, FHP
said, and neither driver was in-
jured.
Steele was cited for careless
-driving, reports show.

O'BRIEN


It has been so nice to
sleep with an open window
a couple of recent nights,
and to go outside in the
morning to what I would
call "cool" fresh air. Even
the animals seem to enjoy
the mornings!
And now that I am able
to get out and about again,
this past week has been so
enjoyable for me. Last Sat-
urday the volunteers of the
Suwannee County Animal
Shelter enjoyed a wonder-
ful day at the Lake City
Mall talking to so many of
the shoppers who stopped
at our tables to pet and
adopt the animals we had
with us, and to buy some of
the items available and to
make donations to our shel-
ter. Although I wasn't able
to be there on Sunday, I un-
derstand it was a very suc-
cessful day, too.
Welcome home to John
Johnson after his hospital
stay for open heart surgery.
Another concern this past
week was young Dylan,
grandson of Frieda and Bill
Isaacks, who had a medical
problem that thankfully
was not serious. Also
please be in prayer for my
neighbor, Marcia Carpen-
ter, who has a medical
problem that has been a
problem to resolve. And
thanks to everyone who
prays for those I mention
and who pray for all those
we don't know about. I
have been blessed to see
the wonders that come
about because of prayer,
and I'm blessed again to be


part of a prayer chain of
caring people at O'Brien
Baptist Church who give
their love and support to
those for whom they pray.
My love and thanks to Pat
Chupp who is my mentor
in this process and my ex-
ample of a loving Christian
woman.
This coming weekend
the town of Live Oak will
be having their "RR Days"
with planned activities.
Listen to your local radio
stations and check informa-
tion .in this newspaper of
what will be going on, and
bring your families to en-
, joy the events planned for
this celebration.
From "Humorous Quota-
tions":
"I've reached the age
when a good day is one in
which nothing hurts!"
"Age is not a particularly
interesting subject. Anyone
can get old. All you have
to do is live long enough.'
"An agnostic is an irreli-
gious person who stays
away from church reli-
giously."
"An alarm clock is a de-
vice built with a mecha-
nism to scare the daylights
into you."
"One of the first things a
child learns in school is
that some other child is
getting a bigger al-
lowance."
"In Genesis it says that it
is not good for a man to be
alone ... but sometimes it is
a great relief!"
Enjoy this beginning of
fall weather. God bless!

By Stephenie Livingston
The Suwannee River Riding Club of
Branford is gearing up for its 53rd annual

SRRC drill team. The drill team has been
practicing formations since last year and
.promises to put on another great show.
The 53rd annual rodeo will be held on
Friday and Saturday, Sept. 25 and 26.
Full story next week.

River claims life of teen


Continued From Page 1A

that the teen had gone
missing while in the dark-
water about 200 yards up
from Little River Springs,
Cameron said. Emergency
crews from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission, Co-
lumbia County Sheriffs
dive team, Suwannee
County Sheriffs Office
and Dixie County Sheriffs
dive team all responded at


the scene.
"It took three hours to
find him," said Cameron of
the drowned teen. "The
Suwannee River is very
deceiving. People don't re-
alize when they're swim-
ming that the current's go-
ing to tire them out. It's not
like a pool. It's not wise to
attempt to swim the
Suwannee River, even for
a good swimmer."
It was not immediately
clear just where the teen


went down, Cameron said.
The crew worked until
they found the young
man's body lying on the
river bottom.
Despite losing the young
*man, Cameron said, the
three hour recovery "was
actually a quick recovery.
Normally, it could take a
day or two," he said.
Oshae's body was sent to
the Medical Examiner's
Office in Jacksonville for
an autopsy. Results were


not available Tuesday.
A memorial fund in the
young man's name has
been set up at Mercantile
Bank to help with funeral
expenses. A funeral service
for Oshae D. Butler will
take place 11 a.m. Satur-
day at the New Bethel
Missionary Baptist
Church, 519 NE Martin
Luther King Street in Lake
City. Combs Funeral
Home' is in charge of

tion to the council," said
Nobles.
Nobles said his decision
will come shortly.
"I hope to make a deci-
sion in the next two
weeks," he added.
The person chosen by
the mayor must be ap-
proved by a majority of


the city council. Duce's
term would have ended in
2012., but his successor
wilL only serve until May.
He or she may then seek
election to serve the re-
maining two years of
Duce's term.
Those interested must
be a citizen of the city of
Live Oak and reside in
District 3.

Diaz, who was not wearing

According to FHP, a pre-

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: Is there a right or wrong way to brush
your teeth?
A: As with most things in life, there's a right
way to brush your teeth. When approaching
your teeth with the brush, imagine four
sections: the right and left halves of your
upper and lower teeth. Since each section
has an inside and outside, you're now
dealing with eight sections. Do one section
at a time.
Start at the back, since the back teeth are
the hardest to reach and the most
frequently neglected. It's easier to reach
and work on the back teeth if you open your
mouth only slightly. Opening wide puas the
cheeks taut against the teeth. The brush
should be at a 45 degree angle against the
gum line so that the bristles splay out and
penetrate the groove, called the sulcus, at
the gum line. Etabish a routine of moving
through these eight sections. It wil turn into
a habit that will hold you in good stead.
Be sure you're using both a toothbrush and
toothpaste that bear the American Dental
Association Seal of Approval. When you're
done with the teeth, brush the top of your
tongue. It will make your mouth feel even
fresher and can help with bad breath. After
brushing, rinse thoroughly with water. Talk
with your dentist about other tips on
brushing.

"These expenses will hit
our Working class families
and small businesses 'the

The cost of a Florida dri-

will also cost $25 more

Full steam ahead for Railroad Days
Event expected to gain momentum throughout week


By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
The open house event to
launch the annual Railroad
Days got off to a slow start
Monday at the Suwannee
County Historical Muse-
um, but that hasn't slowed
organizer and museum cu-
rator Randy Torrance. The
event is still on track with
Thursday's Hobo Night
and -Saturday's main
events.
Local folks are encour-
aged to dress the part in
their best lackluster hobo
attire for the Thursday
Hobo Night celebration.
The event starts at 6 p.m. A
best dressed hobo contest
will take place at the load-
ing dock of the historic At-
lantic Coastline Freight
Station in downtown Live
Oak, Torrance said. Family
fun and games and special
music by Dick Grillo from
his CD, "Treasures of the
Suwannee". will serve as
entertainment. Grace
Manor Restaurant will be
brewing up a hobo stew for
those who attend to fill
their stomachs, Torrance
said.
"We're really looking
forward to Thursday night
and an even bigger crowd

Meanwhile, Railroad Days
will feature the Suwannee

BBQ cook-off, a friendly
competition between local
cooks. In addition, a.dance
demonstration, called "The
Loping Gopher," will take
place on the loading dock
from 4 p.m.- 7 p.m.
"Last year we had be-
tween 600 and 700 peo-
ple," Torrance said, "We
hope to outdo that."


Water means growth,

say city officials


Continued From Page 1A

The city paid $750,000 for
the land and easements.
In order to pay for con-
struction costs, the city
was awarded $3 million in
stimulus money. The re-
mainder, about $2.3 mil-
lion, will come from
pledged revenue funds
from the new state prison.
The stimulus money was
given to the city to fund.,a
solution to the city's aging
water infrastructure and
problems with water pres-
sure. The current system
will riot support growth in
the city, say officials. If the
city failed to act on secur-
ing a well field site, the,
city would have to spend
upwards of $6 million to
rehabilitate the current wa-
ter treatment plant. If satis-
factory water is found, the
new system would: not re-
quire water to be treated.
In addition, the new wells
will allow older ones cur-
rently in use in the city to
be abandoned, saving on
maintenance costs.
City Administrator Bob
Farley .said the city needs


50 years old.
"Several developers
have approached the city
in the past and due to our
current fire protection sys-
tem we have been unable
to meet their needs. This
new system will allow us
to bring development to
the city of Live Oak," said
Farley.
Mayor Sonny Nobles
agreed.
"It's the most sensible,
cost effective way to re-
solve this situation," No-
bles said at City Hall Mon-
day. "I feel like it's proba-
bly the most important de-
cision that has been made
that will shape the destiny
of economic development
in the Suwannee County
community."
City council president
Mark Stewart said he's
worried about the growth
of the city and what would
happen if the city didn't ap-
prove the new system.
"Without the new water
wells the economic devel-
opment of the city will be
dead," Stewart said by
phone Monday. "We're go-
ing to be pretty limited to
what we can do. We b1asi-
cally don't have the water'
pressure now."


ic was clear when seeing
frustrated people in line at,
our local motor vehicle and
tax collector offices," said'-
Boyd. "It is truly unfortu-
nate that the legislature
gave such a narrow win-
dow of time for people to
prepare for this."
Boyd signed House Bill
99 last eek. Under a letter
sent by Rep. Ron Saunders,
D-Key West, the legislation
would "revert vehicle reg-
istration and title fees and
driver's license fees back to


what they were before: the ,-,ito move forward; .and, that.

The Cowboys scored three

in the first quarter. A two-
point conversion failed,

Tennis,

anyone?

Sportabout
By Tom Daniels
Having
officiated a
half dozen
different
sports from T-
ball to high
school I find
Serena Williams' actions
appalling. Another
, spoiled super star who
makes it hard on the
good guys. Yes, she is a
competitor but so are
50,000 football players
every weekend. Do refs
get it wrong sometimes?
Ubetcha. Was the ref in
the right spot when she
made the call, yes she
was and just like
Olympic figure skating
judges and NFL back
judges it was her
judgment. Serena
shouldn't have been
fined $10,000. She
should have been forced
to officiate a few high
school tennis meets to
see how easy it isn't.
The worst part is she
really didn't seem to
care at her news
conference.
Tiger cared and won
another. Confident,
absolutely, arrogant, no.
The best ever, I think so.

FSU gets on the board
with a win and the Gators
continue to pummel less
than suitable opponents.
Mississippi enters the
world of the ranked and
once again the SEC
appears to be The
Conference. How many
crucial games can Ohio
State lose? The fact they
get to play them says more
then many other
programs.
Fantasy owners got
started last week and it
was a Brees for many. The
Broncos, Seahawks and
Giants all won so
Suwannee's alumni begin
3-0 for the season. Andra
Davis played in the Hail
Mary II game where
Denver won on a last
minute deflection. Kelly
Jennings' Seahawks shut
down the Rams 28-0.
Bruce Johnson recovered a
fumble for the Giants and
he played more then he
ever imagined he would
week 1. Bruce was pressed
into action as the New
Yorkers (from Secaucus,
New Jersey) only had three
cornerbacks for the game.
The Suwannee Bulldogs
are finally home this
Friday Night. Tickets on

Connection. Remember to

made it 13-0. Another
score with seven min-
utes to go in the first
half made it 20-0.
A 33-yard field goal
by "Automatic" Austin
O'Connor got the
'Dogs on the score-
board with seconds to
go in the half. The
Cowboys had blocked
an earlier 37-yard field
goal attempt by O'Con-

The Bulldog defense
continued to have prob-

An 18-yard touchdown
run by the Cowboys
with about seven min-
utes to go in the third
made it 27-3.
Greg Swinson and
Alex Robinson gained
some ground for
Suwannee on the next

On special teams,
Quinton Hines made a

Sharp's Rx TakeAway'T System
The Sharps' Rx TakeAway'" System is a new method that assists
consumers with the proper disposal of unused noncontrolled
medications. This program was developed in response to the issues
presented by the large quantity of unused medications that exists in
the United States, concerns about the effect that such drugs have on
the environment, and concerns about drug abuse. The
Environmental Protection Agency has identified trace amounts of
drug products in most rivers, lakes, and streams tested. Drug abuse
often becomes an issue when people leave unused medications in
medicine cabinets, increasing the potential that young adults will
then abuse prescription drugs.
The Sharps' Rx TakeAway0' System allows for the safe disposal
of unused medications. RxTakeAway"' packages may be
purchased by individuals or by pharmacies or other institutions for
use by the public. Medications can be left in the original container
and placed in the package for return to the treatment facility for
proper disposal. Any form of medication, including patches and
liquids, are accepted through this program. However, controlled
substances, such as oxycodone (Oxycontin) and
dextroamphetamine/amphetamine (Adderall), are not accepted. For
more information, visit this website: www.sharpsinc.com. 546215-F

Dear Classified Guys,
I've loved cats ever since I was a kid.
To me they are the perfect pets.
They're easy to care for, always
affectionate and easy to love. I have
two of them that I named Abbot and
Costello. The names came not from
their sense of humor, but froni the
fact that one is tall and lean while the
other is considerably overweight.
I'm not sure if this is in his genes or
if he's snacking on the kitchen
garbage. Unfortunately I've taken on
a job that requires extensive travel
and caring for Abbot and Costello is
becoming increasingly complicated.
My hope was to find them a new
home together, but all the people
who have responded to my classi-
fied ad only want Abbot.
Poor Costello (my fat cat)
doesn't seem to attract an
caregivers. Although no
one says it, I'm sure people
just don't like his weight. Do
you have any solutions for finding
both of these guys a new home?
Cash: I'm sure if your cats could
argue "Who's on First?" they'd find a
home in no time. However since it's
unlikely they'll learn the art of slapstick
comedy, you do have a tricky task.

Carry: It's difficult to give up a pet
that you've grown to love. Finding
them a new home together will be
tough. But even more difficult may
be entertaining the idea of splitting
them up.
Cash: On the plus side, it pounds
like your cats get along very well
together. That should help. In addi-
tion, your choice of catchy names may
encourage people to try and keep them
together as well.
Carry: Unfortunately, finding a new
owner will probably come down to how
much time you can afford to put toward
the process. The longer you can wait to
find a suitable home, the better chance


you have of success.
Cash: If your new job and constant
travel is interfering with their care or
finding them a home, then you may have
to consider splitting up the comedy duo.
Although emotionally difficult for you,
finding them good homes separately is
better than not finding one at all.
Carry: While you continue your
search, put Costello on a diet if you're
concerned about his weight. Loosing a
few pounds-may not find him the per-
fect owner, but it could go a long way
to improving his long-term health.
Cash: And to make sure he's not
cheating, you might want to get a lid
for your kitchen garbage!

Hey Abbott!
Abbott and Costello were the slap-
stick comedy duo of the 1940's. They
started working together developing
their act around 1935 and performed
their famous "Who's on First?" routine
on national radio in 1938. From there
they went on to films and television
becoming the top box office draw with
a reported take ofS 0l million. They
remained a top ten box office attraction
until 1952. Their partnership dissolved
when the IRS charged them with owing
back taxes, forcing them to sell their
homes and much of their assets.
Man's Best Friend
Latest reports show that Americans
and their pets have become increasingly
obese. In 1962 it was estimated that
only about 13% of people were obese.
Since then, the percentages have grown
significantly. According the latest
reports from the Center for Disease
Control, more than 66% of all
Americans are now considered over-
weight or obese. Likewise, we've
passed our eating habits on to our pets.
According to statistics, over 40% of our
pet dogs are considered obese as well.
Got a question, funny story, or just want to give
us your opinion? Wewant to bear all about it!

Out to Lunch
Over the years my husband has tol-
erated us owning cats. Last year, I
adopted a new one named Buster that
required special food every day. Each
night I would mix two containers of
tuna. One for my husband to take for
lunch and the other mixed with cat
food to feed Buster in the morning.
I suppose it was inevitable that one
day I'd confuse the containers. While
feeding Buster I realized I gave my
husband the wrong one for lunch and
had no way to reach him.
That evening when he came home
I figured he'd be upset. Instead when
I asked him how his lunch was, he
handed me an empty container and
smirked, "Honey, today that lunch
was purr-feet!"
(Thanks to Sandy B.)

Keeping Asthma under control
A new nationwide telephone survey of 1,001 asthma patients, conducted by -. .,
AstraZeneca, found that while most patients with asthma understand the risks -
associated with uncontrolled asthma, they don't always act accordingly.
"This finding demonstrates a serious disconnect between the perceived
consequences of uncontrolled asthma and the necessary steps people should '
take to achieve better control," explains Dr. Shailen Shah, an asthma expert With
'PA Allergy and Asthma Consultants. "Some people believe that asthma goes away
when their symptoms do but asthma is a chronic disease. The good news is that
with the appropriate treatment regimen, the inflammation that causes the
symptoms may be properly managed."
Additionally, there are simple steps patients'can take to avoid unnecessary
complications, beginning with an open discussion with a physician and taking
advantage of such free patient programs like My Measures For Success -
(www.JoinMeasuresToday.com), where patients choose the offerings they want,
the way they want them, from a menu of free resources.
Understanding Asthma
People with asthma suffer from chronic lung inflammation, with symptoms
ranging from coughing and wheezing to chest tightness and shortness of breath.
Additionally, asthma triggers such as air pollution, smoke, pet dander, pollen and
mold can set off an asthma episode.
"Some asthma triggers that people may not initially think of are seasonal
weather changes and air pollution," says Shah. "If allergens like pollen or mold
trigger your asthma, or you live in an area with smog, take simple steps to limit
.your exposure by signing up to receive daily air quality alerts or pollen counts -
delivered right to your phone or e-mail -- at www.JoinMeasuresToday.com."
It's important for patients to understand that when their asthma is under control
with the help of their physicians, through lifestyle modifications and the proper use
of appropriate controller medication, they should exhibit few asthma symptoms.
Simple Steps to Asthma Control
A physician can help create an asthma action plan and determine if a contrplier
medication, in addition to a rescue medication, is appropriate.
'To complement an asthma action plan, patient programs like My Measures for
Success offer patients tools and resources to better help manage their disease,'
says Dr. Shah. "I recommend patients utilize such features as the automated
doctor appointment reminders and medication reminders, to help them stay on top
of their treatment program."
In addition to these unique tools offered through My Measures For Success,
* members also receive Success Points, awarded for regular participation in the
program that can be redeemed for various health-related items.
"Using an asthma action plan in conjunction with a patient program can help
patients stay in the know and in control of their asthma." Shah stresses. "By"
understanding proper asthma management and appropriate use of medications,
patients can help maintain control over their asthma symptoms and minimize the
risks associated with uncontrolled asthma."

17-foot python seized from Lakeland home


An anonymous tip to the
Wildlife Alert Hotline sent
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) investigators to a
Lakeland residence in search of
two illegally kept Burmese
pythons. What was hidden from
the world shocked even
investigator Daryl Amerson, a
24-year FWC veteran who
thought he had seen it all.
Amerson discovered an 11-
foot-long male Burmese
python, dwarfed by its female


companion, a 17-foot behemoth
of the same species that
weighed more than 150 pounds.
Michael T. Hall, 37, of 1836
Jupiter St., Lakeland, owned
the snakes but did not have the
required state permit to keep
them. The FWC lists Burmese
pythons as reptiles of concern,
which requires owners to
purchase an annual $100
permit.
Owners are required to have
the pets microchipped and must
follow specific caging


requirements based on the size
of the reptile. They also must
keep a written and approved
contingency plan in case of
escape or natural disaster.
Hall was charged with
second-degree misdemeanors
for not having the required
permit and not having a
critical-incident plan.
Additionally, Hall received a
warning for not having the
animals microchipped. The
snakes were taken to a licensed
facility.


The new rules for captive
wildlife went into effect in
January 2008. People who
owned reptiles of concern prior
to the effective date are still
required to purchase the reptile
of concern permit.
The FWC hosts Pet Amnesty
Days several times a year. At
these events, people who can
no longer keep nonnatives as
pets can turn them over to the
FWC for placement. The next
Pet Arninesty Day will be for
reptiles of concern only, at


Gatorland in Orlando on Oct. 3.
On Wednesday at the FWC
meeting in Howey-in-the-Hills,
the Commission directed staff
to look at the science behind
personal-pet ownership of
reptiles of concern and
breeding and sale by Florida's
reptile industry and bring back
a report at the next meeting in
December in Clewiston.
To report wildlife law
violations, call the toll-free
Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-
404-3922.

Florida State
University's colleges of
law and medicine are
among the Top 10 best in
the nation for Hispanics,
according to Hispanic
Business magazine, which
.has published its annual
rankings of graduate
schools in the magazine's
September issue.
The College of Law was
ranked third among the
nation's law schools, while
the College of Medicine
was ranked seventh among
medical schools. This is
the sixth year in a row that
Florida State Law has been
named in the Top 10. The
College of Medicine was
ranked 11th in 2008.
"The Florida State
University colleges of law


and medicine are at the
forefront of recruiting and
retaining Hispanic
students, and we are
pleased that Hispanic
Business magazine has
recognized these efforts
and the high quality of
education that these
colleges offer," said
Provost and Executive
Vice President for
Academic Affairs
Lawrence G. Abele. "The
success of these programs
reflects the university's
commitment to excellence
and dedication to
encouraging a diverse
community where all of
our students can thrive."
The magazine based its
ranking on a variety of
factors, including the
percentage of full-time


Hispanic faculty, services
for Hispanic students,
Hispanic recruitment
efforts and retention rates,
the percentage of Hispanic
students enrolled and the
schooFs reputation as
reflected in U.S. News &
World Report. Florida
State also has a significant
network of highly
successful Hispanic
alumni.
"Although we have
fewer Hispanic students
than some other schools, a:
significant presence of
Hispanics in the faculty
and administration has
helped us continue to
climb in the Hispanic
Business rankings," said
Law Dean Don Weidner.
"We are thrilled that our
superb academic


reputation and dedication
to the success of.students
from all backgrounds have
earned us the No. 3 spot."
Hispanics made up 8
percent of the law school's
student enrollment and
received 27 of the 314 law
degrees (9 percent),
awarded to the Class of
2008. Fourteen percent of
the full-time faculty was
Hispanic.
At the College of
Medicine, Hispanics made
up 11 percent of the
college's student body and
earned eight of the 58
medical degrees (14
percent) awarded in 2008.
Four percent of the
college's full-time faculty
was Hispanic.
"Our mission is to train
exemplary physicians who


will provide patient-
centered care and
eventually serve in
underrepresenited, rural
and minority areas," said
Dr. John P. Fogarty, dean
of the College of
Medicine. "The best way
to achieve this is to
identify students who


come from these
communities and provide
excellent role models and
training experiences in
those communities while
here. We are pleased that
our students here embrace
that mission and have
chosen FSU as their
medical school."

The Leadon Family Band

...to perform at Gainesville's Free Fridays Concert Series


GAINESVILLE The Leadon Family Band consists of
Mark Leadon and younger sister Monica (Leadon)
Cooper, along with a stellar group of some of
Gainesville's finest musicians. Mark and Monica are
members of the long-time Gainesville musical family, the
Leadons. Two of their older brothers have had noted and
successful careers in music, which included playing in
bands in.Gainesville during their younger years. Bernie.
Leadon is best kiown as an original member of the,
Eagles, and played in the Flying Burrito Brothers, Dillard
& Clark, with Linda Ronstadt, Gram Parsons, Emmy Lou'
Harris and many others. Tom Leadon played with Tom
Petty and Mike Campbell in a Gainesville band called
Mudcrutch and then played with Johnny Rivers, Linda
Ronstadt, Silver and others in Los Angeles. Mudcrutch
reformed in 2008 and released a new CD and is
performing many concerts.
The Leadon Family Band has performed a number of
concerts in the north Florida and south Georgia region in
recent years. Longtime friends, Jack Nettles on electric
lead guitar and vocal harmonies, Larry Thompson on
drums, Jon Alexander on pedal steel guitar and new
addition Ron Thomas on the bass guitar, provide a strong,
solid backbone sound behind Mark and Monica's lead
vocals and acoustic rhythm guitars. The Leadon Family
Band concerts consist of mostly original songs written by
Mark and Monica. Their songs are expressive of themes
and musical sounds found in much of the folk, country-
rock and rock and roll songs they have grown up with.
They have been particularly influenced by the careers of
their older brothers and will often spice up their live
performances by adding a couple of rousing cover songs,


such as ones by the Eagles or Flying Burrito Brothers.
This "Free Fridays". concert will particularly celebrate the
release of Monica Leadon's new CD by featuring her
latest songs.
The Downtown Plaza "Free Fridays" concerts run from
8 p.m. to 10 p.m. every Friday night this year from May 1
through October 30. The Bo Diddley Community Plaza is
located on the corner of Southeast 1st Street and East

Downtown Plaza Free Fridays and links to the bands'


Web sites can be found at www.gvlculturalaffairs.org or at

rchie's


years


of sweetheart choice

indecision ends


By Mike LaBella
CNHI News Service


HAVERHILL, Mass. For fans
of the "Archie" comics serial, it
has always been the great debate.
Betty Cooper or Veronica
Lodge?
The blonde or the brunette?
The wholesome girl next door
or the curvey socialite?
Who would Archie Andrews
prefer to spend the rest of his life
with?
Well, the answer is finally
known after 70 years and the
surprise choice is Veronica.
Archie Comic Publications of
Mamaroneck, N. Y., has settled
the question with a new, six-part
series, "Archie Marries
Veronica." The first part, "The


Proposal," is now on newsstands.
Archie, Betty, Veronica,
Jughead and the other characters
of the fictional Riverdale High
were created and drawn by the
late artist Bob Montana. He
based them roughly on his
classmates at Haverhill, Mass.,
High School in the late 1930s.
The comic characters were
popular during much of the 20th
century in newspaper comic
strips, in comic books and on
radio.
But Archie's sweetheart
preference was never disclosed.
Until now.
On the cover of the latest
comic book, Archie is on one
knee proposing to Veronica, who
responds, "Yes!" Looking on is a
teary-eyed Betty and a surprised


Jughead.
The decision to end the high
school years and start Archie and
Veronica on a life of marriage
has caused a stir among
classmates of the real-life
"Archie" gang almost 70 years
ago.
It is something Rita Walker, a
member of the Haverhill High
class of 1940, never thought
would happen. She expected
Archie to stay forever in high
school and not get married.
"Keep the comic strip young
and the comic book young,"
Walker said. "Archie should stay
Archie. Why would we want him
to get married?"
But if he has to get married,
Walker agreed Veronica is the
right choice.
"I think (Montana) fashioned
her around his favorite actress of
the time, which was Veronica
Lake," she said.
Longtime local newspaper
columnist Barney Gallagher, a
member of the Haverhill High
class of 1939, was an editor for
the school newspaper, the Brown
and Gold, for which Montana
drew cartoons.
"If he's proposing to Veronica,
I think he's got the right one,"
Gallagher said. "I think she had
more color, more character and
was more lively and fascinating
than Betty."
Gallagher knew the "real"
Veronica as Agatha Popoff, a
member of his class and the
daughter of a local doctor.


"She was a really good-looking
brunette. You couldn't miss her,"
he said. "I think Betty was a
composite of girls. Even
Montana's wife always said that.
But somehow, Betty captured the
imagination of people as the girl
next door. Veronica was far from
being the girl next door."
Fred Malcolm Sr., another
member of the Class of 1939,
questioned Archie's final choice
of mates.
"It probably should have been
Betty," he said. "Someone I'd be
pleased to be married to."
Charlie Hayden, also of the
Class of 1939, remembers
Montana walking around the
school sketching images of
students, especially female
classmates. The first time he saw
an Archie comic book was during
World War II, when he was
serving with the U.S. Army in
Italy.
"If they want Archie to get
married, that's fine," he said. "I
have more things in life to worry
about."
Still, Archie's impending
marriage to Veronica, after seven
decades of indecision, is sure to
be a hot topic of discussion when
the Haverhill High classes of
1939 and 1940 hold their
reunions this fall.

Ocala doctors support


rehabilitation efforts in


gratitude for pet's care

Radiologist Dr. Scott Kerns and his wife, Dr. Suzie
Kerns, a pediatrician, are "people" doctors whose
commitment to their animals has taken them all over
the country. Throughout their journey, however, one
University of Florida veterinarian has consistently
provided care or counsel relating to treatment of their
beloved pets, including their dog, Zozo.
The couple began a relationship in 2007 with Kristin
Kirkby, D.V.M., who was then a surgical resident in the
College of Veterinary Medicine. The Kernses' dog,
Zozo, a mixed breed adopted from Haiti, came to UF in
2007 to receive medical treatment for a head injury she
received just a week before she departed for Florida to
be with her new family.
During her first days in the UF Veterinary Medical
Center's intensive care unit, she was treated for
gastrointestinal hemorrhage after nearly bleeding to
death.
"I didn't actually treat Zozo when she first came in
for head trauma," said Kirkby, who now directs the
new Small Animal Rehabilitation and Fitness Center. "I
saw her and knew how small and frail and hurt she
was. But I met the Kernses when I was at a
rehabilitation course in South Florida and they came in
with Zozo as the 'class example.' She had come to be
treated by our class instructor, Dr. Laurie McCauley."
McCauley is an Illinois-based veterinarian certified
in canine rehabilitation therapy, acupuncture and
chiropractic.
The couple mentioned Zozo was not spayed and that
whenever she would go into heat she would take giant
steps backward in her recovery process.
"I introduced myself to them and said that I could
facility her being spayed at UF so that she could have a
boarded anesthesiologist." Kirkby said. "When they
came up for the procedure, I started telling them about
my wish to start a rehabilitation service here. They said
that they have had to travel state and country looking
for this service and how great it would be to have
something so nearby."

The Kernses soon had donated money and
equipment resources that Kirkby said were essential
in the rehabilitation program's successful
development.

"Without them, we would not be where we are now,"
Kirkby said.
The Small Animal Rehabilitation and Fitness Center
at UF has now been in operation for about a year and a
half, and is gearing up to
accept new patients from
outside the VMC.
The Kernses have been
tireless in their efforts to
obtain the best possible
care for the dog they say
has "richly blessed"
them. Zozo's dramatic
medical odyssey has
spanned two years and
has included both human
doctors and veterinarians
from several states
working in the fields of
physical therapy,
chiropractic and
acupuncture.
"Zozo certainly is well-
traveled," said Suzie'
Kerns, who has visited
specialists in Illinois,
Oregon and Florida. Prior
to meeting Kirkby, the
family took its pet to a
therapist who specializes
in craniosacral work in
Illinois, who was
recommended by Kerns'
sister, Dr. Sharon Forster
Blouin, a feline
practitioner in Corvallis,
Ore., and a 1992 graduate
of UF CVM.
Later, Kirkby would
travel to Illinois to learn
More about the therapist's
techniques in order to
better treat Zozo closer to
home. She and the
Kernses also visited with
a human chiropractor to
take advantage of his
expertise in functional
neurology.
"We aren't sure which
treatment modality or
therapist or supplement
has made the most
difference, but we do
know Zozo has defied all
odds and expectations,"
ASuzie Kerns said, adding
that Dr. Huisheng Xie, a
UF veterinary
acupuncturist, played a
key role in caring for
both of their pets during
their hospitalizations at
the VMC.
Now Zozo's biggest
remaining problem is the
tendency to tuck her chin
between her front legs
and literally somersault
when, she's agitated or
S confronted by powerful
smells.
"To the casual
observer, she has a high-
stepping, prancing gait
and a slight headtilt,"
Kerns said. "To us, she is
a miracle and the
~o i absolute joy of our lives.
"She has taught us never
# -I -V to give up hope."
