Bye, Bo

It's been two and a half years
since Bo Pilgrim bought Gold
Kist and brought the chicken
business in Live Oak to its knees..
In fairness to the' Pilgrim's Pride
patriarch, things would have
likely gone bad here even with-
out his help. Feed and fuel prices
went up, and a glut in the global
poultry market just made things
worse.
Now our relationship with
Texas-based Pilgrim's is coming
to an end. A Brazilian conglom-,
erate, JBS, will rescue Pilgrim's
from bankruptcy, taking 64 per-
cent of the company's' stock in
the process.
The acquisition may well work
to our benefit. The new compa-
ny's sheer size JBS, with its
most recent acquisitions, be-
comes the world's biggest meat
producer should shield it from
many of the market forces that
felled Pilgrim's.
But our point lies elsewhere.
Suwannee needs to broaden its
economic basetso as to insulate
us from sudden downturns in a
single, isolated market (to the de-
gree any market in a global econ-
omy is "isolated"). As we've not-
ed before, Suwannee must never
again find itself in a position
where a bad business decision by
one board of directors can threat-
en to endanger our entire econo-
my, as the Pilgrim's debacle near-
ly did.
The good news is, local offi-
cials are addressing the problem.
The county commission is
working hard to attract business
at the western end of the 1-10
corridor, along US 90, through its
Catalyst Project. And the city has
shown its commitment to foster-
ing growth through its recent
purchase of land on 72nd Trace
for well fields to shore up the
city's water supply.
We're moving in the right di-
rection. With continued hard
work we'll weather the current
economic storm and come out
the other side even stronger.

Please address letters
to: Letters To The Editor,
Suwannee Democrat,
PO Box 370, Live Oak,
FL 32064. Please include your
full name, address and daytime
phone number. We ask this so we
can verify your letter and discuss
any questions about it with you.

open 24/7.
Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak
your mind! How? By calling the Suwannee
Democrat Rant and Rave hotline. The hot-
line 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 punc-
tuation are those of the authors.

I would like to know why our county
commissioner of district one and our road
department can't get together to do some-
thing with 80th Terrace. This road is used
by our emergency department to help save
lives and homes. And there is an old railroad
bed and there is always spikes and old met-
al coming to the top., We have money to
give the state for radar detectors and money
to pave a dead end road, so why dori't we
have money where it can help save lives and
homes. They were elected to help us the
people, so why can't they do their jobs ?
/
I was really'hacked off at that representa-
tive from South Carolina that called out,
"You lie" during Pres. Obama's speech to
Congress about health care. Not at the
height of Bush's stupidity did anyone treat,
him like that. That was a huge disrespect to
the office, of the presidency. When will
America say "Enough" with this right wing
craziness? How can one person be a Mus-
lim, a communist, a fascist, a dictator and a
.socialist all in one .lifetime? Assuming he
was ever born, which the "birthers" say nev-
er happened in! America. Common sense
should reign that if what they say is true,
wouldn't the Republican party have verified
this claim during the campaign? As for the
school presentation by the president, either
your children are easily swayed and gullible,
or you give Obama way too much credit to
be able to "brainwash" a child's mind in less
than 15 minutes. For all those people who
hate the government arid want it to stay out .
of their lives, please return your social secu-
rity checks and your Medicare/Medicaid
cards and give back any student loans you
(or your chiid) has, compliments of the gov-
ernment.

Thank you David Campbell, principal of-
Branford Elementary School, for your posi-.
tive approach to the President's speech to
students on Tuesday. This was one of Presi-
dent Obama's most patriotic, 'non-partisan
speeches he has ever given. Thank you Mr.
Campbell again.

As I see it the problem with health care in
this country, is not health care at all, it is the
cost of insurance that is the problem. It is,
easy to remedy. First and foremost is tort re-
form, so that doctors are not charged to
death with malpractice insurance rates.
These doctors do the very best they can do
because of their love and dedication to help-
ing people. The next problem is the.cost of
insurance coverage which would come into
line by doctors not having to pay ridiculous
premium for malpractice insurance. It
would stand to reason if doctors did not have
to pay for inflated insurance premiums his
costs would come down, allowing him to re-
duce the amount they charge because the
number of these expensive tests required to
avoid malpractice suites could be eliminat-


ed, thereby trickling down to the patients.
Unrestrained lawyers are our problem, not
healthcare.

Hello this is Bobby, I would just like to re-
ply to the person who said move if I didn't
like it here. What, are you related to Nancy
Pelosi? Seriously we need to work together
to make our area profitable not a ghost town-
bypassed by everyone on the interstate. Let
us have a share of the profits, not let other
counties have it. We have great county em-
ployees, We don't won't to lose our money to:
support our maintenance, fire and police.
We can't afford for more people to move,
out. Thank you.

Back when the legislature granted an ex-
tra $25,000 homestead exemption fee for
Suwannee County citizens, our leaders here
in Suwannee county lobbied Tallahassee
that our citizens not receive this due to our
county being a poor county, so I'm wonder-
ing why doesn't the same rule apply to our
citizens having to pay all the extra license
renewal fees. Debbie Boyd are you reading
this? We need some help!

Yes, I would like to know how it is that
people can walk around and proclaim that
they have the Lord. Jesus Christ in their
heart and do not live it in their life? How do
they live with themselves and how is this
possible? Why is the church today more of
worshipping Satan than of God?

Could everyone please consider their
neighbors across the street? We don't really
want to look at your dirty garbage cans all
week. .Would you please consider putting
them behind your house and only taking
them to. the front on garbage days? We can
try to make our properties look as nice as
possible, and this change is easy to make,
and doesn't cost anything.

Simmer down folks, there's 2 sides to
every coin. If somebody was a tellin' you to
give up your guns, where & how to worship
God, or that you can't earn a livin' off your
land, that would go over like stink in a pew..
It's the same thing if a person wants to open
a liquor store on his land, and folks can live
anyplace they want in America. The right to
speak out, earn a livin', or vote for some-
thing different is what has made this coun-
try. The sun will still rise and people on
them highways just might stop and find out
what a beautiful place this is, how nice we
really are here, and maybe even spend a few
bucks. It's called AMERICAN FREEDOM!

Its to baad that churches putting up
messages on there markees don't no how to
spel.

To those who desperately want to believe
our President is trying to indoctrinate our
children, with a communist manifesto. THIS
RANT IS FOR YOU! Some, especially me-
dia, have been giving you townhallers a
break, acting as though you are "PASSION-
ATE" Americans, who have taken leave of
your senses because you fear losing some-
thing that's important to your wellbeing.
Well I say, BULLCRAP! Oh you are fright-
ened, that's for sure, but it's not passion
you're expressing its pure unadulterated
HATE! Worse than that! It's BIGOTRY!!!
Its hate because you never fathomed a black
man could become president of the USA...
Not just that... "THE" leader of your intoler-
ant America! Yes Virginia, there are two
Americas, they exist as certainly as love and
generosity and devotion exist. One tolerant
and broadminded, the other intolerant and
narrow-minded! From a resident of the


QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Do you think the purchase of Pilgrim's

Pride by Brazilian beef producer JBS This p
ternet
asill benefit the local economy?
will benefit the local economy? n


TOLERANT AND BROADMINDED
USA!

I would like to thank the County Com-
missioners for the new skate park. It will
provide another source of recreation for our
kids and will benefit the entire community
rather than a select few along with their out
of town "friends". Last time I checked, you
can get into skateboarding for $50.00 or less
as opposed to $3,000.00 to $5,000.00 for an
ATV. No activity is 100% safe and skate-
boarding is not without risk but fatalities are
next to non-existent. Compare that to the
steadily rising ATV death toll nationwide.
In, addition, the skate park will not conflict
with the Suwannee Wilderness Trail and the
millions of dollars already invested in
"Green Tourism" by the Florida Park Ser-
vice and many others. Suwannee County
need s to develop and diversify but it must be
done in a manner that complements, not de-
tracts, from one of our greatest resources.

What makes the great country is the
FREEDOMS granted by the Constitution. A
Constitution conceived by visionaries :of a
future where mankind has an opinion, voice,
and worth. A Constitution of liberties for
one nation under God. As I read Mrs.
Sweet's Letter to the Editor, I was astounded
by the lack of education behind this letter.
Our president is not a regal king, dictator,
monarch, or God forbid a fuhrer (by the way
that means the father of the country). The
right or liberty to raise my child and select
what and who my child listens to is my own.
I support the United States of America. I do
not agree with or support the liberal left
wing of our government. I, do not and will
not blindly follow a head of state that seems
to contradict the essence of liberty. The right
to disagree is granted to me in the beloved
U.S. Constitution. As for Mrs. Sweet's com-
ments about Senator Wilson, this statesman
voiced opposition. Refer back to your histo-
ry books and research John C. Calhoun.
This Georgia Senator once severally beat a
fellow statesman with his cane on the house
floor. By the way, Congress did not chastise
him. Shame on me, I think not. Shame on
you for not recognizing liberty.
U ,,
Has anyone in Suwannee County and/or
in its cities every been cited for walking,
running or jogging on the wrong side of the
road? How about doing it at night without
illumination?
S ,M
I don't drink liquor nor am I an idiot, mov-
ing or invoking God into a political issue.
That said, liquor is merely the lightening
rod. The true focus is policies that can ex-
ppnd our economy, personal freedom, and
an open responsive gov't. This benefits
everyone, everywhere in our country, not
just Suwannee Co. If you can't agree with
that, then who's the idiot? This involves re-
scinding an existing & obviously unpopular
law, created by man, not God, not making
more new laws. Why not put it to the vote
instead of arguing & being obnoxious. Oh,
once done I'll join the other fellow in a beer!

Outstanding Farm Family


The Browns, O'Brien residents, Suwannee County Outstanding Farm Family for 2009. Photo: Submitted


By Elena Toro
Agriculture/Natural Resources
Extension Agent
Suwannee County Extension


Walter and Debbie Brown's family has
been named Suwannee County's Out-
standing Farm Family for 2009 by the
EJena Toro North florida Fair. The Browns were re-
cently recognized by Suwannee County
Farm Bureau members, friends and family at the Farm Bureau Annu-
al Dinner. The Browns received a commemorative vase from the
North Florida Fair presented by the Suwannee County Extension
Service. Former 4-H member Tori Henderson and local hay farmer
Dess Fennell shared a few words with the audience and expressed
how the Browns have impacted their lives and the lives of many oth-
ers in Suwannee County. For most people who know the Browns it
is not difficult to understand why they are deserving of this recogni-
tion. But for those who haven't had the pleasure of meeting them I
wanted to share a. few words about this homegrown family.
A few months ago, I was truly honored to make a phone call let-
ting Mr.,Brown know that the North Florida Fair and our farming
community wanted to recognize him and Mrs. Debbie with the Out-
standing Farm Family award. I was not prepared for Mr. Walter's re-
sponse. He was speechless. All he could say was, "Thanks young
lady, I didn't expect this." I could tell.he was surprised and extreme-
ly grateful for this recognition. That day I also learned a new mean-
ing of humility. How can .someone who has given their entire life to
serving fellow farmers and local youth, have such a hard time ac-
knowledging that we wanted to publicly recognize him and his fanii-
ly for the years of dedication and commitment to the agriculture in-
dustry.
Both Mr. Walter and Mrs. Debbie grew up working on their re-
spective family farms. Mr. Walter's grandmother grew some of the
finest eggplants you could find in the Thomasville Auction Market
in the early 1960s. Mr. Brown helped his grandmother harvest and
deliver those eggplants to her customers, who came from all around.
This experience afforded him .an opportunity to realize his true pas-
sion in life.
During the early 1980s the Browns started raising poultry for Gold
Kist on their farm in O'Brien. Mrs. Debbie remembers when they
first acquired the farm. She felt overwhelmed by the financial re-
sponsibility that this new endeavor brought. Mr. Brown, on the other
hand, felt that the farm was like a little piece of heaven, even though
it needed much work. He was grateful to have a farm he could call


Walter and Debbie Brown on their O'Brien farm.- Photo: Submitted

his own. After all, it had taken over a year of weekly visits to the lo-
cal farm service office before they would'even consider him for a
loan to start a poultry operation. The family worked around the
clock. Mr. Brown managed the local Gordon Ford Tractor Co. during
the day while Mrs. Debbie took care of the chicken houses. Their
daughters Marlene, Stephanie and Claudia helped before and after
school with the farm chores. Those were long days, with no vaca-
tions and few holidays in betweefi. In time, the Browns paid off
their debt, remodeled their old farmhouse and expanded the farm.
Twenty-nine years later, they are still raising birds with the same
commitment to excellence as they did when they started. The
Browns have also been at the forefront of best management practices
for poultry farms that ensure protection of the environment through
the CARES (County Alliance for Responsible Environmental Stew-
ardship) program.
Despite their multiple obligations, the Browns always found time

man seeks

to invoke

amendment
By Jeff Waters
jeff. waters @
gaflnews. com
A constitutional
amendment passed
in 2002, to allow
homesteaded proper-
ty owners a reduc-
tion in the assessed
value of their prop-
erty has been in-
quired about for the
first time here.
Branford resident
John Mullin took in
his parents-in-law in
October 2007, he
said. The Mullins
added an apartment
to their house for'
the couple to live in.
The Florida Consti-
tution allows for a
reduction in assess-
ment for those who
build or add on to
thqir property for
parents or grandpar-
ents to live so they
can be cared for.
However, Mullin
said Property Ap-
praiser Lamar Jenk-
ins told him the
county must pass an
ordinance to allow
such reductions.
"I think there will
be many Suwannee
County residents
that will be caught
up in this," Mullin
told commissioners
Tuesday.
Commissioner
Douglas Udell
praised Mullin and
others who might
make this sacrifice.
"I' think it's ad-
mirable when you
take on responsibili-
ties of your parents,
grandparents or
mother-in-law,", said
Udell.
Commissioners
tabled the issue until
a future meeting to
gather more data.

grand theft, according
to a press release issued
by the Lafayette County
Sheriffs Office Mon-
day.
Lawson, responding
to a call in Hatch Bend,
reportedly discovered


that a 22' pontoon boat

investigation revealed
that Joiner had alleged-
ly stolen the boat, cut it
into pieces, and sold it
to an aluminum recy-
cling center.


O'Brien man arrested on assault charges


By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.

Kenneth Jack Walsh, 52, of O'Brien was
S.arrested Tuesday and charged with aggra-
vated assault for allegedly threatening to
kill a family member as he poked at the
victim with a knife, according to a sheriffs
report.
The victim told authorities that he was in


fear of his life as Walsh threatened and
poked at him several times on his left side,
leaving him bruised. According to the vic-
tim, Walsh covered the blade of the knife
with his hand as he used the weapon. The
victim was not seriously injured, but said
he felt in danger of his life. Walsh was ar-
rested and booked into the Suwannee
County Jail. he has since been released.

'Hands-On Gardening' coming to Branford


By Stephenie Livingston
Get your trowel and gloves out, the
North Florida "Hands-On Gardening"
Workshop is coming to Branford this
year. This event, sponsored by UF/IFAS
Extension, Master Gardeners from Levy,
Dixie, Gilchrist, Columbia, Taylor, Madi-
son and Suwannee counties and Suwan-
nee River Water Management District,
will take place at Hatch Park Community
Center on Saturday, Oct. 10.
Participants will be divided into groups.
and rotated through three different sta-
tions. At these stations, six important gar-


dening topics will be discussed: watering
efficiently and designing with water in
mind, vegetable gardening, how to prune,
propagation, compost, and turf grass.
Caroline Saft of Suwannee County Ex-
tension said the workshop is meant to be
totally interactive, with all demonstrations
including hands-on activities. "We're go-
ing to let you cut," said Saft. This year the
workshop aims to better involve all sur-
rounding counties. The workshop espe-
cially hopes to have extensive participa-
tion from Lafayette County, which does
not have a horticulture agent, said Saft.

Learn a foreign language

at the Branford library

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie. itvingston @gqaflnews.com

You can now learn a foreign language at
the Branford library, and at your own pace
through Rosetta Stone. Levels I and 2 are
available for both English and Spanish.
There is now a separate PC at the library
with both levels of English and Spanish in-
stalled and available to use at your leisure.
There is also an audio companion available
for checkout.
'This will benefit the public because the
library is offering a cost-effective way to
learn a second language at the pace of the
patron," said Amber Waters, assistant techni-
cal services coordinator for the regional li-
brary system.
Rosetta Stone is aLso installed on three
PCs at the Live Oak branch and on one PC
at the Jennings location.

Food for Thought

Always Preach The Truth!
These are simple yet sobering words. That is what
Paul charged Timothy with [II Tim. 4:1-5]. Paul had
already warned young Timothy that some had
rejected the faith and had suffered shipwreck [I
Tim. 1:18-20]. We are commissioned to preach the
whole counsel of God [Acts 20:27]. Here are some
truths we must preach:
1) There Is A God! God does exist [Ge. 1:1; Heb.
11:6]. He is the Great I Am [Ex. 3:6].
2) Jesus Is Our Savior And King: Only through
and in Him can we obtain salvation [Jn. 8:21-24;
14"6; Acts 4:12]. He died for my sins [Rom. 5:8]
and rose for my justification [Rom. 4:25].
3) The Bible Plan Of Salvation: It is not the plan
according to Ken, but Jesus. He said we must
believe and be baptized [Mk. 16:16]. Peter said it
was for the remission of our sins [Acts 2:38]. Paul
was commanded to be baptized to wash his sins
away [Acts. 22:16].
4) There Is One Bible Church: Jesus said He built
it [Matt. 16:18]. It is in this body the saved are
added by God [Acts 2:47]. May we always preach
the truth!

country, with offices in New

Francisco, and Washington,
DC, and his reach has
extended to Pod casting and the Internet.
The road to success is rarely easy in any business

many positions in education and in the family business,
his passion was radio and he always found ways to work
on-air wherever and whenever he could, sometimes on
three stations at the same time.
When American Radio Network offered him the host
position on a hew program Good Day USA, he decided to
risk everything. He changed the name to Doug Stephan
Good Day and took control of the program. Currently he
is heard on over 350 stations by over 3 and a half million
listeners every week. Doug is now among the top national
radio personalities according to TALKERS magazine.
But statistics and growth are only a small part of
Doug's success story. The real story is the relationship he
has cultivated with his listeners. The listeners are so
important because he is motivated to help people grow
including himself. He likes to engage, provoke, entertain
and inform to simulate in unexpected ways. He likes to
think of himself as an entertainer with a mission.

Grace Manor would like to announce
the return of live music nearly every
night! Some musicians will be out on
the front porch for you to enjoy and
others will be inside playing the baby
grand piano or perhaps a guitar.
Grace Manor would also like to an-
nounce their new chef, Court Davis.
Having streamlined the entire kitchen,
he has brought about exceptionally
quick and efficient service times and
the food is better than ever.
When you stop by for lunch at Grace
Manor (with lunches starting at $5),


now your order will be much faster
than before. They can quickly accom-
modate your lunch schedule leaving
time for you to visit if you choose.
They are also now offering catering
services for weddings, family reunions,
Christmas parties, birthday parties, etc.
The atmosphere at Grace Manor is
such that you can come in, eat quickly
and leave if you have to, but you're also
welcome to linger and visit, enjoying
the southern charm of the historic
Thomas Dowling House.
In addition to great food with upscale


dining at down home prices, the folks
at Grace Manor also involve them-
selves in all aspects of community ser-
vice wherever they can. For instance,
last night during Railroad Days they
donated the Hobo Stew (using their

Swine flu death rumored, says health official

nee County Coliseum to be
used for mass vaccinations
for the virus in the near fu-
ture.
Community Health
Nursing Director Wanda
Crowe said Wednesday
that the Suwannee County
Health Department has in-
vestigated the matter but


has yet to confirm a fatali-
ty.
"The health department
has investigated a rumor
that there had been a death
in a Suwannee County res-
ident due to H1N1 swine
flu," Crowe said by email
Wednesday. "We have not
been able to locate any in-
formation that would sub-
stantiate the rumor."

and increase our sales
channel penetration, espe-
cially in exports to specific
markets," Atkinson said.
Pilgrim's expects the
plan to be confirmed by
the bankruptcy court in
time for the company to
emerge from bankruptcy
before the end of Decem-
ber. However, the deal may
still undergo federal an-
titrust scrutiny, though ex-
perts say that shouldn't be
a problem.
JBS, based on Sao
Paulo, Brazil, is one of the
largest beef and pork pro-
ducers in the world, with
annual sales of more than
$20 billion. The company
operates plants all over the
world, including 16 in the
United States.
It's too soon to say how


the proposed reorganiza-
tion will affect current Pil-
grim's workers, Atkinson
said.
"We will be developing
an integration plan with
JBS over the next several
months. We will continue
communicating with our
employees throughout the
process."
However, there is a
strong possibility, Atkin-
son said, that several
closed plants could be re-
opened.
"There are no current
plans to close additional
plants. In fact, there may
be an opportunity to recon-
sider opening closed plants
at some point in the fu-
ture."
Pilgrim's Pride entered
Chapter 11 bankruptcy,
protection in December
2008.

shown for that game. By
revealing two "8" syim-
bols, players win triple
the prize shown for that
game, according to lottery


'game rules. If a star sym-
bol is revealed, a player
wins all 12 prizes auto-
matically. Its wasn't clear

Cheston Selph is the son

ployee at Corbett's Mobile

Currently, 21-year-old
Selph is a student at Val-
dosta State University.


The local health depart-
ment has also confirmed
one more case of the virus
here, bringing the total to
six. However, the figure is
misleading and the number
of cases could be much
higher.
"We have had six con-
firmed cases of H1N1 in-
fections in Suwannee
County residents, but the
number of confirmed cases
is not a good indicator of
the prevalence of H1N1
anymore," said Crowe.
"Routine testing for the
H1N1 virus in persons with
influenza like illness is no
longer recommended by the
CDC (Centers for Disease
Control) of the Florida De-
partment of Health."
The health department
has to wait for the vaccine
to be delivered before a
time frame can be given on
vaccinations.
"We do not know when
we'll receive the vaccine,"

of the way it easily trans-

said about 278,000 cases

NO TALL TALE

'Florida cracker storyteller' Butch Harrison spins a yarn about his own adventures


Continued From Page 1A

real Florida and make
them realize the paradise
we had," said Butch, who
has spent the last eight
years as a professional sto-
ryteller enlightening folks


about the early days of the
Florida pioneers and revel-
ing in tales about the time
he spent as an airboat
hunter and guide in the
Florida Everglades.
On this September day,
a day much like any.other,


Butch Harrison. Photo: Carnell Hawthorne Jr.


Butch sat at a table in
Pepe's Restaurant and told
his story; a story unlike
any I'd ever heard.

A Good Introduction

"The first 11 years of my
life I lived within half a
block of the Atlantic
ocean," said Butch as he
escaped back to childhood
days in Delray Beach. "I
can't remember a time
when I didn't know how to
swim or fish. I was able to
catch fish right off the
beach: whiting, permit,
pompano and snappers,"
he said rattling off one
right after the other. "Back
then we kids did whatever
we had to do to make
money, whether we sold
bait or fish. We did what-
ever we could."
Butch paused. Readied
himself to drop in a bit of
local history.
"To acclimate you with


Suwannee County in the
late and 40s and 50s a lot
of people had trouble mak-
ing a living in North Flori-
da and many of them
moved south to seek their
fame and fortune. Among
them was C.Y. Byrd Jr.,
whose father lived in Live
Oak. His name is right
above the Chinese restau-
rant in Live Oak. C. Y.
Byrd 1898," he repeated
the name this time, with
the date attached. Well,
C.Y. Jr. traveled to Delray
Beach, had a big house on
the ocean and three boys:
C.Y. mI, Johnny Mack and
Clyde. Back in the mid-
1970s, nobody knew if this
country would survive.
Everybody wanted to be-
come self-sufficient. I met
the Byrds in the late 40s
and 50s. I grew up around
his sons. A bunch of those
older guys took me out in
the Everglades hunting and
after a while, I got my own


airboat and went out there
myself."

Rising Action

For more than 20 years,
Butch told stories while he
worked as a guide and
photographer in the Ever-
glades before moving to
Suwannee County.
"I entertained people
from all over the world,"
Butch said.
In 1976, Butch gave
then Democratic Presiden-
tial candidate Edmund -
Muskie a glades tour dur-
ing the height of the cam-
paign. Butch also says he
entertained actress Dina
Merrill, actor Cliff Robert-
son, NFL Hall of Famer
Merlin Olsen and Tom T.
Hall, country music leg-
end, among others.
"All my life, if you had
a party out there, or if you
were fishing and had a
slow day out there, then
you had to be able to en-
tertain. Ninety-five percent
of the stories I tell are my
own true life experiences."
Butch tells of how he
taught Kermit the Alligator
to come at the sound of a
call, brewed tin can coffee
for weary airboat hunters,
gigged frogs for early
morning breakfast and
wore a light on his head at,
night to spot night crea-
tures.
"Frogs' eyes shine -white
like diamonds, gatdrs' eyes
shine red like charcoal,
and deer eyes are an iri-
descent green," he said,
pulling lines from his self-
titled DVD.
"I met doctors, lawyers,
judges, writers, photogra-
phers and many Seminole
Indians. They were all
people that had crossed my
path." Butch ,aid. "But
politics put me out of busi-
ness in the Everglades."

Plotting Along

Butch later decided it
was best to leave the south
coast and head upstate. "I
moved directly to Suwan-
nee County with family
because, like I said. we
wanted to become self-suf-
ficient. We bought 142 and
a hqlf acres in Newvbum,
turned it into a turnout fa-
cility, a rest for polo
ponies." .
Following WWII, the
game of polo had been
reestablished at the Gulf
Stream Polo Club. Polo
reemerged and begin to
thrive, Butch explained.
"Primarily we would
take polo ponies to my
turnout facility and let
them rest for seven or
eight months. I'd been
around horses all my life.
As a kid, that area between
the ocean and the Ever-
glades was all cattle coun-
try."
Butch drifted back to a
childhood memory.
"I got my first cracker
horse when I was 10 years
old. Billy," Butch said be-
fore spelling out the name
letter by letter. "B-I-L-L-Y
was his name. He was a
marsh tacky, a descendant
of the first Spanish horses
that Ponce de Leon
brought to Florida." Butch
smiled, tossing in another
tidbit of Florida history.
"What people don't realize
is that cattle and horses
started right here in Flori-
da in 1521 with Ponce de
Leon."
He continued.
"And that's when I start-


ed messing with the polo
horses. I got to know
everyone around the game
of polo the best of the
best. Then we made
arrangements to transport
horses from here to Alaska
and everywhere in be-
tween."
By this time Butch had


reached the age of 40.
"I made my living with
my vision and my left eye
was my dominant eye,"
Butch said. "I was in a
business where I couldn't
be rigorously honest and I
didn't know how to get
out. God suddenly did for
me what I couldn't do for
myself. He took away the
vision in my left eye."
Doctors discovered a
retinal occlusion, which
trapped blood from arteries
in his retina, Butch said.
Since then he's worn the
patch.

Piecing it Together

"I went through a deep
depression when I lost my
eyesight," said 75-year-old
Butch. That was about 10
years ago.
Butch, who had always
been surrounded by nature,
found himself in menial
jobs that trapped his free
spirit. He tried his hand at
temporary work, first as a
Door greeter at Wal-Mart
for nearly a year. Theni he
landed a part-time position
as an information special-
ist at the Nature and Her-
itage Tourism Center in
White Springs.
"I was there eight or
nine months," he said, "but
then the state started hav-
ing cutbacks of temporary
employees and they let me
go."
"A good friend of mine
from grade school, Lucian
Williams, was living in
Gainesville at the time,"
Butch said. "Lucian was a
computer buff, and he be-
gan looking all over the
computer trying to find me
a job. But, there's not a lot
of jobs out there for an old
one-eyed man," Butch
smiled.
"Wait'll youf hear the
next one now," Butch
paused and steadied him-
self for the best part of the
story.
"Lucian called me one
day and said, 'I just looked
outside my front door and
there's a pickup truck sit-
ting over there with this
man's name on it, and un-
deineath his name it says:
Storyteller.' Lucian said to
me, maybe this is what
you need to do.since you
been BS'ing us all your
life."
It seemed that telling'
stories was exactly what
Butch was meant to do.
"I quickly replied to Lu-
cian: 'Get me a phone
number,' and the rest is
history."
The transition was sim-
ple, Butch said.
"I been storytelling all
my life, but only for the
last eight years as a profes-
sional."

A Good Ending

Nowadays, Butch happi-
ly carries the name "Flori-
da Cracker," a term he
says derived from the
sound of the cracking whip
used by Florida's early cat-
tlemen and Anglo settlers.
He travels and speaks to
school children, at state
parks and places all in be-
tween -- telling Florida's
story, which he affection-
ately calls "my story." He
carries along in his croker
sack the skins of raccoons,
deer, alligators, gray foxes,
bobcats, skunks, otters and
the horns of white-tailed
deer. And he doesn't hesi-
tate to show off his cracker
whip. It's all part of the


story for Butch.
"As long as God lets
me, I just want to contin-
ue telling the stories of
Florida and its rich past,"
he says. "God has allowed
me to live and do a num-
ber of different things. I
never planned to do any
of this."

'Dogs face Ft. White tonight


By Jeff Waters
The Suwanne High Bulldogs will
play their first home game of the sea-
son tonight at Langford Stadium
against Ft. White, and the kids are


excited according to coach Jerry
Odom.
"We need to play better in every
phase of the game," said Odom. "Our
energy was good last week but our


execution has to get better for us to
be a good football team. Fort White
has a very good team with some dan-
gerous weapons. We are looking for-
ward to the challenge playing them."

The Bulldogs
have three games
under their wing
and have come
away with two
wins. The Kickoff
Classic against Chiefland
gave an indication this team
was in shape and ready for
some serious competition.
The Hamilton .game proved
we still needed some
tweaking as we left a lot of
scoring opportunities on the
field. The Madison game
showed we are surely not at
the level we want to be. The
team was competitive and
didn't quit, but assignments
that came naturally in practice
were at times forgotten. Make
no bones about it, Madison is
a good football team.
Tonight the 'Dogs will take
on the Indians of Fort'White.
The Indians have beaten Lake
City and lost to the same
Madison team. Their defense
was a bit suspect against
Madison but they provided
more offense than we could
muster. This contest will
show just where we are. We
will of course face Lake City
down the road and we share
some common foes with Fort
White. A Bulldog win ahead
of the beginning of our
district schedule will go a
long way to a winning season.
Casual and serious fans
have been clamoring for a
return to glory. The 12th man
wouldn't hurt. The attendance
at tonight's game will also go
a long way in measuring the
success of our season. The
attendance will also benefit

Florida Fish Busters' Bulletin

National Hunting and Fishing Day


Bob Wattendorf

Hunting and fishing have
contributed to our society since
Colonial days, and that's the reason beyond
the National Hunting and Fishing Day. On
Saturday, Sept. 26, the contributions anglers
and hunters make to fish and wildlife
conservation will be recognized.
Since 1972, every president has formally
proclaimed National Hunting and Fishing
Day. This year, country music star Luke
Bryan is the honorary chairman, and the
official Web site (NHFday.org) offers great
tips on getting started fishing, shooting or
hunting and on where to go.
More than a century ago, hunters and
anglers were the first to recognize that
development and unregulated uses of
wildlife were threatening the future of
many species. President Theodore
Roosevelt, a very active hunter and angler,
supported the call for the first laws to
restrict commercial harvest of wildlife.
Hunters and anglers urged sustainable use
of fish and game, created hunting and
fishing licenses, and lobbied for taxes on
sporting equipment to provide funds for
state conservation agencies. These user-
driven actions were the foundation for some
of the post dramatic conservation successes
of all time. Populations of largemouth bass,
white-tailed deer, wild turkey, wood ducks
and many other species began to recover*
from decades of unregulated exploitation.
Sportsmen have also contributed countless
hours to clean up, protect and enhance
millions of acres of habitat for the use and
enjoyment of everyone.,
National Hunting and Fishing Day is
considered by many to be the most effective
grassroots effort ever undertaken to
promote these outdoor sports and
conservation. In modem times, this


celebration
of the enjoyment and health benefits that
hunting and fishing bring to participants is
especially important. Research shows
,active, nature-based recreation significantly
contributes to the cure of obesity, heart
disease and diabetes and a virtual epidemic
of attention deficit disorder and the
increasing prevalence of asthma and
allergies among children.
Not only is the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) a
supporter of National Hunting and Fishing
Day, it is also a major promoter of the Get
Outdoors Florida! coalition
(GetOutdoorsFlorida.com). Get Outdoors
"Florida! is working to address these health
issues that are described as "nature deficit
disorder." Besides that, by getting outdoors
and engaging in activities such as fishing,
hunting, hiking and wildlife viewing,
research shows that youth develop greater
self-confidence, a sense of responsibility
and better social networking skills. That's
the old type of social networking %o being
face to face with people and with the quiet
of nature to facilitate calm conversations in
a relaxed setting, rather than the frenetic
action of an electronic game or Facebook
exchange.
While enjoying National Hunting and
Fishing Day, it may be worthwhile to
consider the North American Model of
Wildlife Conservation's seven basic
principles, which enable you to have such
great hunting and fishing opportunities:
1. Fish and wildlife are public resources.
Throughout the United States, wildlife is
held in common ownership by the state for
the benefit of all people.
2. Markets for trade in black bass and
other wildlife and sportfish are carefully


restricted, removing a huge threat to
sustaining those species.
3. States allow sustainable use of sport
fish and wildlife by law, not by market
pressures, land ownership or special
privilege. The public has input into how
these resources are allocated.
4. The democracy of hunting is
emphasized. In North America, anyone in
good standing may participate.
5. Hunters and anglers fund conservation,
including protections for wildlife species
that are not harvested, by purchasing
hunting and fishing licenses and paying.
excise taxes on recreational equipment.
6. Many fish and wildlife species are an
international resource. Species, such as
migratory fish, transcend boundaries,
requiring cooperative management.
7. Science is the proper tool for
developing fisheries policy. This is a key
concept of fish and wildlife management
emphasized by Theodore Roosevelt, Aldo
Leopold and many other conservation
leaders.
This year on Hunting and Fishing Day
celebrate the conservation successes
brought about by hunters and anglers.
More importantly, find a way to take a
youth with you to have a wonderful, fun
and healthy day enjoying Florida's
tremendous fishing, hunting and wildlife-
viewing opportunities.

Cheek's Gymnastics




competes at Balcony Gym


Cheek's Gymnastics Competitive
Team traveled to Ocala Saturday, Aug.
29 and came back with top honors.
This was Cheek's first meet of the
season.
Tom Cheek, owner and coach of
Cheek's Gymnastics said this meet
was an eye opener for his girls.
"We expected high scores out of our
gymnasts, but I didn't realize the
scores were going to be this high,"
said Cheek. "I'm very proud of our
girls, they have been working extra
hard at the gym and putting in a lot of
days and hours, and it showed this
weekend."
The girls competed on vault, uneven
bars, balance beam and floor exercise.
A total of the four events gives an all
around score which all gymnasts try
to excel in. The girls who participated
in level 3 competition (beginning)
were Stephanie Lawrence, Kyla
Watson, Carson Frier and Sarah-
Beth Lee. Lawrence is a second year
level 3; had high scores of 9.075 on
vault and an 8.900 on beam.
"Stephanie has been out for a couple
months under the weather, but she is
one of the hardest working gymnasts I
have," Chris Cheek said.
Another level 3, first year competi-
tor is Kyla Watson.
"I haven't seen a gymnast like this
in a long time. Kyla couldn't do a for-
ward roll on the floor when I first got
her. Now she is one of the best gym-
nasts in out gym," said Tom Cheek.
"Kyla can correct a skill on the spot;
she learns quickly and is always the
last gymnast to leave the gym, I have
to make her go home. If I had a bed in
the gym she would probably stay
there."
Her high score was a 3rd place in
vault with a 9.300 and a 3rd place all

Gentleness

Gentleness is the eighth virtue which St. Paul lists as the fruit of thi
Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23. The Greek word "prautes" is sometime
translated as gentleness and sometimes as meekness, but in an'


case, the Greek word has the sense, not
of weakness,, but -of power under
restraint.The gentle person may have the
means and authority to do so, but
exercises kindly self-restraint in not doing
so. The soldier who shows mercy to his


enemy upon capturing him would be
exercising this virtue, as would a king
who forgives a subject deserving of
punishment. Aristotle spoke of this virtue
in the context of anger, and said that it
was a vice both to be too easily angered
and to be incapable of anger; the virtue,
with respect to anger, was to be angry at
the righty time and towards the right
person, and to the appropriate degree.
Consider how Jesus was generally gentle, even when being
condemned unjustly, but that his anger flared appropriately when
faced with the hypocrisy of the Pharisees, or when overturning the
tables of the moneychangers, who had defiled the temple. Most of
us are too quick to anger.We get angry over imagined slights and all
sorts of minor misunderstandings and differences of opinion. We
should rein in our anger and develop a gentleness which shows that
we are children of God..

Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual
should restore him in a spirit of gentleness.

around with a 35.600
Carson Frier is the
youngest gymnast but has
a heart of a lion. Frier's
best event is the floor ex-
ercise. She made an
8.750 with a 33.650 in
the all around. We are ex-
pecting big things out of
Frier. She's definitely on
the right path. Our fourth
gymnast is SarahBeth
Lee, this is her first year
in competition also. Lee
did very well on the vault
and uneven bars. I've had
Lee for three years. She
was only four-years-old
when I saw high potential
from her. I knew I had
something special. This
meet proves me right.
The next group of
gymnasts performed in-
termediate routines. Cary
Winstead, age 14, is our
oldest gymnast. She start-
ed a little late in life to
become a gymnast, the
ideal age for a child to
get started in gymnastics
or almost any sport is
around 2-3 years old.
Winstead not only is a
gymnast she's an appren-
tice coach and works for
Tom Cheek in the recre-
ational classes. Win-
stead's highest score
which placed first in
vault was a 9.650, with
an all around score of
35.200.
Gracie Thronton made
a high score of 33.675 all.
around and placed third
on the balance beam. An-
other high score was on
vault with a 9.075. We
see a lot of high hopes
for Thronton; she's cer-


tainly got the potential.
All she needs is to focus
on her routines.
Bailiegh Williams is
always fairly consistent
in her routines. She's one
of the girls that have
been with Cheek's Gym-
nastics the longest,
around eight years.
Williams is always at the
gym working out. She
comes early and leaves
late. On vault she scored
a 9.000 and an all around
score of a 33.125. Three
level fours competing has
qualified for the state
meet held in December.
Our next group of girls
is the level 5's which is
the intermediate ad-
vanced routines.
Stephanie Stewart took
a first place on vault with
a 9.000 with consist
scores in bars, beam and
floor. She is one of our
strongest girls, and works
extra hard on her skills.
Emily Gill had an all
around of 33.075 with
mid eights in the events.
Gill, has been in, gymnas-
tics for 11 years. Grecia
Lagunas shined in the
floor and vault. Lagunas
had a great year last year
and is getting ready for
another great year.
"We see a lot of im-
provement in Grecia."'
said Stormy Cheek.
Our only level six (ad-
variced) gymnast is Tessa
Ferreira.
"Tessa has been with
us for eight years," said
Chris Cheek.
She's also one of the
quickest learners. we
have, which in turn is one
of our best gymnasts. The


* first year Cheek's com-
peted, at the state meet,
Ferreira placed first in
all four events, and first
in all around. She was
also first all around in her
age and level in the entire
state of Florida.
"We work Tessa hard,
and expect a lot. She has
a lot' of potential to go to
level 10 (elite)," said Tom
Cheek.
Ferreira scored in the.
high eights with a third
place on bars scoring an
8.475 and a 34.825 all
around for another third
place.
This was a great little
meet to start the season
with. There were eight


teams and total of 150
girls.
"In a small meet like
this one, the atmosphere,
attitude and crowd are the
key," said coach Cheek.
The gymnasts, moms
and dad's, coaches and
even judges have just a
good time.
"We (Cheek's gymnasts
and Coaches) are treated
well," added Chris
Cheek.
The kids have smiles
and grins on their faces
the entire time.

Huntin' season's here


Outta' the

Woods
By Tony Young

Summer's almost over and
the early mornings are finally
feeling pleasant. We've
finished our preseason
scouting and hung our tree
stands along well-traveled


lony young
Media relations


deer trails, we hope next to a coordinator
mature oak tree that'll begin
dropping acorns soon. Finally the time of
year we've been waiting for is here the
beginning of football season, and better yet,
opening day of hunting season, specifically
archery.
Archery season provides a great
opportunity to take a trophy whitetail and is
arguably one of the best times to do so,
along with hunting the rut. If you're
stealthy enough and have done your
homework, you've got a good chance of
having a nice one walk out in front of you.
. Florida's divided into three hunting
zones, and you'll need to know which zone
you'll be hunting in, because season dates
vary.
Hunting season comes in first in the
South Hunting Zone, where archery season
begins Sept. 12and ends Oct. 11. Next up
is the Central Zone, which runs Sept. 26 -
Oct. 25. In the Northwest Hunting Zone,
archery season begins Oct. 17 and ends
Nov. 15.
To hunt during archery season, you'll
need a Florida hunting license and an
archery permit.
If you're a Florida resident, a hunting
license costs $17. Nonresidents may pay
$46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for
12 months. The archery permit costs $5 for
in-state and out-of-staters.
Anyone planning to hunt one of Florida's
many wildlife management areas (WMAs)
must purchase a management area permit
for $26.50.-
All of these licenses and permits are
available at county tax collectors' offices,
retail outlets that sell hunting and fishing
supplies, or by calling, toll-free, 888-
HUNT-FLORIDA or clicking
www.wildlifelicense.com/fl.
The most common game to take during
archery season are deer and wild hog.
During this period. deer of either sex are --
legal game, regardless of antler size (except
for spotted fawns). The daily bag limit on..
deer is two. Bag limits on WMAs .can


differ, so consult the area's
brochure first
Wild hogs aren't considered
game animals on private lands
and with landowner permission
- can be hunted year-round with
no bag or size limits. On most
WMAs, there's no bag or size
limits, and hogs are legal to take
during any hunting season
except spring turkey. On a few
WMAs, limits do apply, so
again, check the area brochure.


In addition to hunting big
game, it's also legal to shoot
gobblers and bearded turkeys during
archery season. You can take only one per
day, and there's a two-bird fall-season limit.
It's against the law to hunt turkeys in
Holmes County during this period, and you
can't shoot turkeys while they're on the
roostypr bait, while using dogs, when
ygq'rewithin 100 yards of a game-feeding
station when feed is present or with the aid
of recorded turkey calls.
If you're quite the marksman, gray
squirrel, quail and rabbit are three other
species legal to take during archery season,
and there's a daily bag limit of 12 for each.
Only bows may be used during archery
season no crossbows allowed, except for
hunters with a disabled crossbow permit.
Bows must have a minimum draw weight
of 35 pounds, and hand-held releases are
permitted. For hunting deer, hog and
turkey, broadheads must have at least two
sharpened edges with a minimum width of
7/8 inch.
Legal shooting hours are a half-hour
before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset.
Except for turkeys, you're permitted to take.
resident game over corn or soybeans on
private land. It's against the law to use
such feed on WMAs.
Some things you can't do during archery
season include possessing firearms, using
explosive or drug-injecting arrows, using
bows equipped with electronic
computational or laser sights and
possessing a bow on an airboat in Miami-
Dade County. ,
You can't use dogs to hunt deer or hogs
during archery season, but you can use bird
dogs if quail hunting. Otherwise, the only
time you can have a dog in the woods
while hunting is when it's on a leash and
you're using it to trail wounded game.
Here's hoping all your preparation and
persistence pay off and wishing you luck
on taking that monster buck. As always,
have fun, hunt safely and ethically, and
we'll see you in the woods!

Sowing and reaping


Heart Matters
By Angie Land

While enjoying a rare
break in Florida's late
summer humidity, I sat
on the front porch recent-
ly and watched as the
first leaves of the season
began falling. Autumn is
my favorite season of the
year because of the beau-
tiful colors, cooler weath-
er, not to mention the Fall
festivals planned for the
coming months. Today's
celebrations are a bit dif-
ferent than the ones in
years past, celebrations
that were centered on
reaping from crops what
had been sown earlier in
the year. This time of
year is a great reminder
that sowing and reaping'
is a natural law of the
universe by which we are
all affected. In Galatians
6:7, the Bible says:
"Do not be deceived:
God cannot be mocked. A
man reaps what he sows."
The natural law of sow-
ing and reaping states
that every action, deci-
sion or choice has a con-
sequence, good or bad.
No getting around it. We
often say "You get out of
something what you put
into it," that's sowing and
reaping.
In our personal lives, '
understanding sowing and
reaping is beneficial to


keep things working. For
example, if we make wise
choices financially, we
will reap financial bless-
ings. If we make foolish
choices financially, we
will suffer financial hard-
ships. The same goes for
our health issues, habits
and other areas of our
lives. It is important to
note here that sowing and
reaping applies to those
things that are within our-
control. Just as farmers
couldn't predict the full
effect a drought would
have on their crops, obvi-
ously there are things that
we deal with that are out
of our hands. If you
weigh it out though, those
are the exception rather,
than the rule to most of
our 'reaping". If we con-
tinue to find ourselves.
suffering with the same
problems over and over,
it is most likely a result
of what we are sowing.
Relationships are no
different. If we are reap-
ing unhealthy, hurtful re-
sults from our relation-
ships, let's trace the trail
back to see what we are*
sowing into them. For ex-
ample, if you are hurt and
frustrated because some-
one is treating you with
disrespect, take an honest
look to see if you have
been disrespectful to him
or her. Why would we ex-
pect others to treat us
with respect if we don't
show it to them? Sow re-
spect before you expect
it. Next, look to see how
you respond when you
are treated this way. Get-
ting angry and being dis-
respectful in return only
justifies the way you are
being treated. Try saying
something like, 'TI'.Moti%.
going to let you real me'
this way, when you are
ready to treat me with re-


spect, I will be open to
hear what you have to
say." This is a respectful
response, and while it
stops the disrespect, it
also gives the person a
choice: I can continue to
be disrespectful and be
isolated from someone I
love, or I can change my
behavior and be connect-
ed to him or her. Re-
member that negative
-consequences are-what
motivate people to
change.their behavior. No
one likes to suffer!
In the Old Testament
book of Deuteronomy
God gives the choice:
"See, I am setting before
you today a blessing and
a curse." We have that
same choice today. We
can choose to live our
lives wisely according to
God's plan for us and
reap blessings or we can
turn from His ways and
do our own thing and ex-
pect-to suffer. His way al-
ways works, so let's seek
the blessing. Because.
your heart matters!

Blessings,

Angie

Derek Maul
www.Derekmaul.net

Last week I started a
new 8-week study with
my men's group,
affectionately known as
"The Men's Room" or
"The Gathering of Most
Excellent Dudes." .-
I'm teaching my new
book,-''Tle Unmaking of a Part-Tine
Christian"
(Upper Room Books, 2009), and so
we kicked off by talking about exactly
what we mean when we say something
like, "I'm a Christian."
I asked for sound-bite definitions.'
"Imagine you're at a party," I said,?'r :
sitting next to someone on an airplane,'
or maybe in'casual conversation during
the intermission.at some kind of event.
How, given only a few sentences, would
you answer the question 'How would
you define Christian?' or 'What do you
mean when you say you're a
Christian?'"
The answers and I gave everyone a
few moments to think first --were a
hodgepodge of loosely related phrases. I
wrote them on the chart. They didn't
look all that compelling!
"Where did you get the information?"
I asked. "How did you know what to
say?"
It's a question I've asked upwards of
500 people as I've been traveling around
and talking about the project. Here are
some of the responses from Florida,
North Carolina, and Tennessee.

* Well, everyone knows what a
Christian is...
* It's what my preacher said...
* I got it from the people I hang out
with...


The Suwannee Democrat
needs you. Please let us know of
any interesting evebits or happen-
ing. at your church. The Shvan-
nee De mocrat will run them on
the church page for free. Send


I I got my definition from the
Internet...
I've been reading the Bible...

Okay, kudos to the person who's
been reading the Bible. In the book
of Acts, folk like Peter, James, John
and friends were first called
"Christians" (they didn't make it
up themselves) because they
reminded people of Jesus. As in,
"Hey,-that James guy makes me think of
Jpsus." or, "Every time I'm around that
Nathanial dude it reminds me of Jesus."
Then Jesus who didn't spend much
time talking about church politics,
denominational preference, or who's got
the best church said this.
"Look, everyone in the world is going
to know you're my disciples because of
'the Way you love one another." Then he
said this: "People will know you're my
followers if you keep my teaching."
It's one reason I tend to say "I'm a
Jesus follower" nowadays. Because
everyone already thinks they know what
a "Christian" is, and they don't want
anything to do with that. So I say I'm a
Jesus-follower. People ask "what's
that?" Then I can explain.
It's a good idea to understand what we
believe. Not so we can prove other
people wrong, but so we actually have
something of substance to share.
Think about it. Not enough of us do.

If it wasn't for grandparents


By Rev. James L Snyder


Some jobs carry a lot of prestige, glam-
our and worldwide recognition. A few,
however, are not too interested in those
sorts of things. We do not care who
knows what we do, as long as we know
what we are doing and why we are doing
it, which is all right with us.
Our entire country honors the military
forces, and such we should for the fine
joi they do protecting our country. In just
about every community, emergency per-
sonnel are honored for the wonderful job
they do in keeping our homes safe. What
would we do without these wonderful
people and the great job they are doing
for us.
I do not have a jealous bone in my
body, I am glad these people get their due
recognition and I would not want it take a
sliver of it for myself. I revel in my
incognito and enjoy what I am doing
without recognition.
I posed a simple question. Where would
all these good people be without their
grandparents? I am too humble to suggest
that grandparents are the backbone of this
wonderful country of ours. It is true. But
you did not hear it from me.
Just think of where this country,would ':'
be if it were not for grandparents?
Parents have a hard time, especially in
today's culture and economy. If they have
a job their priority is to keep that job
whether they like it or not. Sometimes,
when these weary parents come home
from work they are a tad grouchy. Who's
to blame them? They sure have a tough

time of it.
Then there is the end of the month
when they have more month than money
and are trying to figure out what to pay
and what to postpone. This in and of itself
is enough to make the most jovial person
cranky. There never is enough time or -
money for a family to do what they would
like to do.
Enter the grandparents. Grandparents
are God's solution to cranky and grouchy
parents. God does everything he can to
protect these innocent children so he has
given to them grandparents.
The job of a grandparent is totally dif-
ferent from the parent's. Grandparents
ha\ e ap edge on this because they raised
those parents and know them inside out.
Therefore. every grandparent knows how
to get around their grandchildren's parents
and help those darling little grandchildren
to have some fun. : '
I personally believe:that the purpose of
childhood is to exploit fun. No child has
the ability to take full advantage of this
kind of exploitation on their own. They
need help. Who better to help them then
grandparents?
Of the two grandparents it is the grand-
father who has to come to the rescue more
times than not. Grandmothers just do not
have what it takes all the time to help the
grandchildren exploit a situation to the
fullest extent of fun. *
It is not the grandmother's fault. After
all, she is a woman first. Women, as
everybody knows, are rather addicted to
rules.
For example. Grandmothers insist on

enforcing the rules established by the chil-
dren's parents. Those rules usually in-
clude, an established bedtime every night,
a limit on how much candy should be
consumed at any one time, and always
finishing everything on your dinner plate.
Then grandmothers have this thing about
doing chores around the house.
For this reason, God put his best think-
ing cap on and come up with an antidote
to grandmothers. The remedy for all of
this nonsense is simply grandfathers.
It is the grandfather's responsibility to
intercede on the grandchildren's behalf
and make sure they have as much fun as
possible.
When it comes to rules, grandfathers
are quite flexible.
One of the best rules from the Grandfa-
ther Rulebook has to do with bedtime.
According to the rulebook, no grandchild
should go to bed with the singular pur-
pose of going to sleep. Bedtime is not a
time to sleep but rather a time to practice
aerobics oh the bed. It would be a dis-
grace if.a child ever reached his or her
teenage years and was not an expert at
bed calisthenics.
Also, according to this rulebook, din-
nertime'is not so much a time to be but
rather a time to learn new jokes. Woe be
unto the child who has dinner their graid-
parents without learning one new joke.
Cleaning your dinner plate is not as nearly

to clean up our dinner plate why did he
invent the refrigerator?
This rulebook further states that any
grandfather worth his membership in the
grandfather union must be amply supplied
with jellybeans. There is a heftyfine in-
volved for running out of jellybeans.
When grandmother says, "I think the
children have had enough sugar for the
evening," grandfather must take charge.
There is no such thing, according to the
Grandfather Rulebook, of any grandchild
having too much sugar.
It is not that grandfathers violate the
rules; they just operate from a different
rulebook then grandmothers.
The Bible says, "The hoary [gray] head
is a crown of glory, if it be found in the
way of righteousness. He that is slow to
anger is better than the mighty; and he
that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a
city" (Proverbs 16:31-32 KJV).
The Christian grandfather is the fulfill-
ment of this Scripture.

EHz Special teams played a
O m big role for Georgia Tech,

after jumping out to a 24-0 lead against
Clemson. Jerrard Tarrant became the
second player in program history to
score on a punt return in consecutive

Saturday's 38-35 overtime victory over
James Madison.
ammu Sophomore OB 3acory Harris

30-14 loss to visiting TCU. The 1984

GAME OF THE WEEK

Tennessee at Florida


Plenty to chew on


until the method to Lane Kiffin's madness is revealed,
a rebuilding Tennessee program will have the unen-
.viable task of trying to back up its brash 34-year-old
head coach's comments.
For someone who turned an assistant coaching job
at Southern Cal into a gig as the Oakldnd Raiders' head
coach and washed out of the NFL in 20 games, Kiffin took
the Southeastern Conference and the college football
world by storm when he arrived in Knoxville last Nov. 30.
He quickly predicted that the Volunteers faithful would be
"singing 'Rocky Top' all night" after beating Florida and
later provoked the ire of Gators head coach Urban Meyer
by making a recruiting allegation.
Although Kiffin brought in the nation's top-ranked
recruiting class last February, he still lacks-the firepower
to upset the defending national champions and get the
last word in on a raucous crowd this Saturday afternoon at
"The Swamp."
Records: Tennessee 1-1 (0-0 SEC East); Florida 2-0 (0-0
SEC East). Coaches: Tennessee's Lane Kiffin (1-1); Flori-
da's Urban Meyer (85-17). Series: Tied at 19-19. Kickoff:
3:30 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: CBS. -
Key for Tennessee: Kiffin must correct his first true
-mistakeof the 2009 season and put quarterback-Jonathan
Crompton in a better position to be successful than he was
in this past Saturday's 19-15 loss to UCLA.
Key for Florida: Study the film and find the-holes in a
Tennessee defense that currently ranks third in the coun-
try in passing yards and total yards allowed per game.

THE REST OF THE MATCHUPS


Records: Louisville 1-0 (0-0 Big East); Kentucky 1-0 (0-0
SEC East). Coaches: Louisville's Steve Kragthorpe (41-35);

which ranked 110th nationally with an average turnover
margin of minus-1 last year, committed two more turn-
overs than Indiana State in a 30-10 victory on Sept. 5.
Key for Kentucky: Correcting the blown coverages that
Miami (Ohio) was not able to exploit in the Wildcats' 42-0
win two, weeks ago.
North 7a at Alabama
Records: North Texas 1-1 (0-0 Sun Belt); Alabama 2-0 (0-0
SEC West). Coaches: North Texas' Todd Dodge (4-22);

ning back Cam Montgomery, who was held to 88 yards on

Jordan Jefferson has averaged only 6:5 yards per attempt
this season.

sion level needs to relish the opportunity to test its skills

FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 18, 2009


* SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK


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 from 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 any
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.


,




Duane "Casi
& Todd"




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 sounds
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


ISED






;" Hoize
"Carry" Hoize


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 of S10 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.

us your opinion? We want to hear all about itl

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-fect!"
(Thanks to Sandy B.)



They forgot the flea collar
for this feline.

In the past two years, the newspaper business has faced unprecedented challenges, but make no mistake:
newspaper media print and digital remains strong and will emerge from the current environment an even stronger multi-platform force.


104Million
Number of adults who read a print
newspaper every day, more than
115 million on Sunday. That's more
than the Super Bowl (94 million),
American Idol (23 million) or the
average late local news (65 million.)


61%
18-24 year olds
and 25-34 year
olds who read
a newspaper
in an average
week. 65% of
everyone in those
age groups read
a newspaper
or visited a
newspaper
website
that week.


40%
Households with
unique visitors
to newspaper
websites in an
average month.


56%
According
to Google,
percentage of
consumers that:
have researched
or purchased
*products
they saw in a
newspaper.


52%
Percentage of
people who are
more likely to buy
a product if it is
seen in the paper.


TONS
Number of
creative options
for advertisers
choosing to utilize
the newspaper.
From belly bands,
polybags, post-it
notes, scented
ads, taste-it ads,
glow-in-the-dark
and temporary
tattoos, as
welf as event
and database
marketing,
behavioral
targeting,
e-mail blasts,
e-newsletters
and more.


MOST
Newspapers make a
larger investment in
journalism than any
other medium.
Most of the
information you
already read from
"aggregators"
and other media
originated with
newspapers.
No amount of
effort from local
bloggers, non-profit
news entities or
TV news sources
could match the
depth and breadth
of newspaper-
produced content.


This is not a portrait of a dying industry. It's illustrative of transformation. Newspapers are reinventing themselves to focus on serving distinct audiences
with a variety of products, and delivering those audiences effectively to advertisers across media channels.
