The Live Oak City Council
on Tuesday rejected Mayor
Sonny Nobles' nominee to fill
the vacancy created by the re-

nomination and vote came as a
surprise, as no public notice of
the meeting was given.
Nobles nominated former
Mayor A.P. "Buddy" Nott to fill
the District 3 seat of Ken Duce,
who died earlier this month.
However, the council failed to

F SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK


Suwannee native here


Saturday for book signing


.5.


Submitted
Lesa Henderson has finally achieved
the dream she has been chasing for
more than 30 years with the release of
her novel Someone to Trust. She will
be doing an author signing at New
Life Bible Book Store in Live Oak on
Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Henderson, 43, a Suwannee County
native, has always had a passion for
the written word. She discovered she
had talent for writing when she
entered and won her first writing
contest at age 12. Her winning piece
was published in the Suwannee
Democrat inspiring her to begin
submitting novels to publishing
houses. Unfortunately her manuscripts
weren't accepted and then life got in
the way and her writing was put on the-
back burner for a while.
"I never gave up on the dream,
though. It was always there in the back
.of my mind." Henderson says.
Though she hadn't quite made it as a
noyel writer, in 1995 ..she turned her
ability toward writing articles and was
published in a magazine. From there
she went on to have her work
published in national magazines and


publications such as Woman's World,
Ladies Home Journal, Charisma, New
Man, The Florida State News, The
Florida Times Union and The North
Jax Monthly.
Still the desire to have a novel
published burned within her.
"I have always loved to read and
from the time I was in Suwannee
Middle School I wanted to be the one
to create the stories."
She spent a lot of her free time
doing just that on an old typewriter her
dad bought for her from a local office
store. "I'm 43 now, so that's been over
30 years ago. Though I put the novel
writing aside for a while, I've always
had characters bouncing around inside
my head demanding to be let out."
- Lesa Wilson,as she was known
then, graduated from Suwannee High
in 1983. She typed her first novel at
age 13 on a typewriter her father,
rented for her from McCrimon's
Office Supply,
Here's a little bit ab dtt he' nii vel

romance, and soul-stirring Christian
values. It's a recipe for Someone to
Trust, the new inspirational romance
novel by author Lesa Henderson.
Set amidst the beauty of the Great
Smoky Mountains, Someone to Trust
is Henderson's debut novel. It relates
the story of copywriter, Megan
McCormick, a heartbroken woman on
the run from her past. A childhood
tragedy and betrayal as an adult have
. left Megan completely distrusting of
men and feeling abandoned by God.
Ashamed of the mistakes she's
made, Megan moves away from
Atlanta to the quaint mountain town of
Laurel Crest to start over. There she
purchases a cabin and builds a new
life. Enter Lee Grainger who literally
knocks Megan off of her feet. After a
case of mistaken identity is cleared up
Lee offers NMegan friendship. Lee's
faith and sincerity challenge Megan let
go of the past. forgive herself and
those %% ho'\ve betrayed her.
: "If you have'a dream -*pitu ile;'- "
Don't let rejection and obstacles stop

of her accomplishment.

Lowering your risk

of ovarian cancer


By Mary Ward
Suwannee County Health
Department
The words "ovarian
cancer" strike fear in the
hearts of most women.
Every year, nearly 25,000
American women are ,
diagnosed with the disease-
and for roughly four in five
of them, the cancer has
already spread beyond the


ovaries. At that point, it's too
late to save most of these
women. Yet when ovarian
cancer is found before it
spreads, more than 90
percent of women survive
longer than five years. The
problem is finding it early.

Skate park opens at Sportsplex


Local officials and dignitaries officially open the new skate park at First Federal Sportsplex in Live Oak. Photo: Submitted


Suwannee Parks & Recreation opened its
newest and largest skate park at the First
Federal Sportsplex in Live Oak recently.
Despite the rain and impending
thunderstorms, community residents, elected
officials and skaters gathered around the


new facility under tents and umbrellas to
witness the Grand Opening.
Little Miss Suwannee Valley even came
along to help officially open the skate park
and brought her own skateboard, helmet and
safety gear with her. Unfortunately, due to


the rain, the skaters were unable to share
their talents with those present as skating is
not allowed when the surface is wet.
The skate park offers those young people
who might not be interested in organized
sports the opportunity to spend some active


time outdoors, getting some exercise. With
14 different components, they have a variety
of ways to get the chance to show off what
they can do and boy, you should see what
some of these young kids can do on a
skateboard!

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT


Lowering your risk of ovarian cancer


* Continued From Page 4A

there are no true symptoms,
several leading cancer
organizations now
recommend that you watch
out for the following:
bloating,
pelvic or stomach pain,
difficulty with eating,
feeling full quickly after
eating,
the development of ..,


urinary symptoms (like
urgency to go or having to
go a lot).
Don't just assume that
these issues are caused-by a
stomach bug and don't put
off going to the doctor
because you are "too busy."
If you notice any of them for
more than a few weeks, see
your doctor.
Talk to relatives
Make sure you know all


there is to know about your
female relatives' cancer
history on both of your
parents' sides and tell your'
doctor. If you have a close
relative (mother, sister or
daughter) who has had
ovarian cancer, your risks
are higher than average.
Even ifjit's an aunt,
grandmother or great-
grandmother. \our risk may
be higher. The same goes for


breast cancer in relatives -
that, too, could be a sign of
higher risks for ovarian
cancer.
Get tested
There are tests available,
some determine your risk
and others determine
whether you may have
cancer. But keep in mind:
testing isn't for everyone,
and some tests are expensive
and haven't been proven yet
in finding cancer early.
Research is still being done
on the best way to find and
treatovarian cancer early .
U Lead a healthy lifestyle

Eating properly, not
smoking and exercising are
important factors in
preventing many chronic
illnesses. It is also very
important to see your doctor
regularly and follow any
instructions he or she may
have for you.

Democracy,


and then some
Stay on top of this one, folks.
There's a movement out there
called "Hometown Democracy,"
but it's not what it seems.
Amendment 4, which will ap-
pear on the ballot next year, pur-
ports tO open the floodgates of
:.freedom to Floridians, as far as
gro\ thd is concerned. If it passes,
every change to our county's
comprehensive land use plan
will have to be approved by vot-
ers in a countywide referendum.
As a practical matter, it will -
seriously stifle growth.
That, apparently, is the point
of it. If we lived in Hillsborough
or Dade County that might not
seem a-bad idea. But measured,
intelligent growth is what we
need here, if we're to sustain
ourselves as a vital community.
Local folks are going to get
together Tuesday morning at 10
at Live Oak City Hall to hash
this thing out. Be there if you .
can. If not, we'll have a full re-
port in the paper and online at
suwanneedemocrat.com.

Our hotline is

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

Liquor ... blah, blah, blah, blah, blah,
blah, blah, blah .... Quit talking about it
and do something already. I for one, am
tired of hearing about it. What if it does go
to a vote and it gets voted down again?
What are you gonna do then, keep whin-
ing about it here in the rant and rave? I
don't care either way, but the ole "it will
make our county, a metropolis" doesn't
hold water. Taylor Co is wet ... not a me-
tropolis. Hamilton Co is wet ... nope, its
not a metropolis either. I think that our
county government is our biggest road
block in the path of bigger and better
things for Suwannee Co.

Hi, I am calling in regards to the people
who are complaining about Suwannee
'County. I moved here about 14 or 15 years
ago and Suwannee County is the best. I
am out of work and this man and woman
came and mowed my lawn for nothing and
they left without even letting me tell them
thank you. If possible I would like for
them to contact me so that I could at least
thank them. Suwannee County is good, I
don't care what anybody says. Thank you.

Why is Councilman Stew art so opposed,
'to appointing someone with "political as-
pirations" to the vacant council seat. At
least we would have the opportunity to
evaluate his abilities. Something we didn't
have the opportunity to do with Mr. Stew-
art..-

TEACHERS: If you can't, or won't,
grade your students' daily work-efforts,
find another job!

Wow, the race card was played shame-
lessly in last weeks rant and rave column.
JI hope people will grow up and realize that
dissension .doesn't always = racists moti-
vations, when black men or women are the
target of said dissension. Get over it al-
'ready!.!!

To the person' who said "As for the


The love bugs were not too bad this sea-
son. I have been told that if is too wet, they
are bad. I have also heard that if it is too
dry, they are worse. One thing I am sure of
is they can mess up the front of a clean au-
tomobile. How can such a small bug make
such a mess? Maybe it's because you get
two splats for one. Each love bug season I
try to think of things to do to the person
that "invented "the little double deckers. I'll
keep my ideas to myself for the sake of not
being accused of being a cruel and violent
person. Spiders won't even eat the little
nuisances. I have caught them before and
threw them in a spider web. The spiders
pick them out of their webs. They won't
even eat them. The only thing that might be
good about them is cleaner cars. When you
wash themoff of the front of your vehicle,
you probably wash the entire vehicle.
I commend the Council for approving the
gas rebate program I presented to them ear-
lier. Not only will this prevent gas rates
from going up this year due to a budget
shortfall, it will give our residents a little
break on your monthly gas bill for the four
coldest months. The gas budget was
$100,000 in the red. The money available
for relief during these four months won't be
a large amount by the time it is spread over
four months and divided among the gas
users in the city. At least it will offer some
relief during these trying economic times.
There's a lot of people out there hurting fi-
nancially. I wish there was more we could
do to give more relief.
And now there are two. Our community
now has two skateboard parks. One park,


school presentation by the president, ei-
ther 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." You hit the
nail on head. Children that are young in
years ARE easily swayed and gullible.
THAT'S the reason parents don't want the
Prez giving speeches to them or pushing
any part of his agenda in public schools.
Let our teachers brainwash our kids with
useful knowledge such as reading, writ-
in', and arithmetic. If you want your kid
listening to it, I have no problem with that,
but don't push it on the rest of the kids.
WE know what's best for our own chil-
dren, not YOU or Obama!

Why wasn't Henry Smart appointed to
the vacant council seat? Mr Smart is the
only person from the district who ran for
the position. He literally lost by a handful
of votes. Mr. Nobles shouldn't be able to
hand pick his old districts councilman. He
should go by the will of the people. Mr.
Smart has always had an interest in his
district and should be given the chance to
govern. If he doesn't perform well we can
vote him out next election.

How can anyone complain about -ur
road dep't? They did a great job widening,
paving and striping 153rd Road. The only
problem is it is 2/10 of a mile long, total-
ly useless, & has exactly 2 houses on it!
What kinda "representation" is this?!!
These "Elected Representatives" are the
same ones who petitioned to deny our
property tax break then gave the money to
the state troopers so they can write us tick-
ets @ a 12% cut. Charter this county and
get some of these people out of office,
now.

I was fully aware I was moving to a so-
cially challenged dry county. Since unlike
yourself, I do not drink distilled spirits, it
is of little consequence. A moron is a per-
son whose TQ is below 12 & an idiot is
around 2. These very unfortunate people
have mental capabilities of 3 to 7 yr. olds.
The terms are no longer used in scientific
format & are considered vile & offensive.
In some religions these people are looked
upon as blessed in their ignorance of hu-
man cruelty. I can assure you my own in-
telligence quotient is considerably higher'
than this and suggest you may consider
shutting up and actually apologize for
your uninformed tasteless comments. If.
you find you are incapable of such humil-
ity, perhaps you should pack up and move
to Outer Mongolia, if1 they are willing to
accept such a mean spirited narrow mind-
ed individual. Regardless, I will forgive
your ignorance & pray God will also. on*
your judgment day. That is provided you
posses enough gray matter to comprehend

dedicated last week. It is located on Silas

safety equipment such as helmets is re-
quired. Tennis courts and a walking path
are also under construction. Our recreation-

Yes I'm calling about all these men or
supposed to be men and boys going
around with their britches hanging down
past their rear end. A lot of people don't
like that stuff! Why can't there be some-
thing done about it. Everybody needs to
get together and do something. It is awful
to see these people going around with
their britches down past their rear ends. It
is a disgrace, Thank you, please do some-
thing. Thank you again.

I am laughing about the third to the last
rant and rave in Friday's paper. where the
author/speaker asked for another person to
refer to their history books and this caller
then gets his history wrong, especially
about John C. Calhoun, who was not a
Georgia senator. If you are going to make
comments like that at least get your histo-
ry correct.

Why don't somebody buy that old Bad-
cock's building and put in a walk-in the-
ater or skating rink, it would help Live
Oak's economy.

Yes, Ilive in McAlpin, and the sign for,
the speed limit says 30 mph and I have
kids and two other kids that have moved:
out here and my kids can't even go across
the street to their grandmother's house or'
anything. By the-time they get back pver'
here you can see the cars speeding going
60 mph literally on 30 mph road. I wish
they had an officer out here in this
McAlpin area at all times. This is very
dangerous, very dangerous. I wish they
would do something about this.

Yes, during school hours when you are
dropping your kids off at the Suwannee
Elementary School, there is a stop sign,":
the first stop sign when you go around that
curve. We stop at that one, and then you
go and then the people in front ,of us have
a stop sign, but they don't ever stop and let
you go by, they're always coming in front
of us and they never stop at the stop sign.
It is like the stop sign is invisible. They
need to do something about that. They
need an officer out there directing that part
of traffic, so people can get their kids to
school on time. Thank you.

This is in response to the person who
wrote the rant concerning President Oba-
ma, in the town hall meetings. You said
that the town haulers are bigots, well I say
bullcrap(to you. Just because I believe the
president is a Muslim and I do not want
the government to tell me what kind of
health care to have does not make ne' a
bigot. As far as a black person being pres-

event. Thanks 'Carol! Hopefully there will
be another event next year.
The sewer project that has been under-
way for the .past months is progressing
well. The contractor is cleaning and video
taping our underground sewer lines. Man
have we run into some surprises. It's a hun-
dred year mess down there. We will soon.
begin repairing some of the many prob-
lems that have been discovered. This is a
very expensive program and will take sev-
eral years to complete. We will just go as
far as the money will allow us.
I must again commend the Council for
their actions in purchasing a new well field
site. Our current wells are UDI or "under
the direct influence" of surface water. Sur-
face water is getting.into our ground water
primarily through the many go-away or dry
wells we have. Many were drilled after
Hurricane Dora In 1964. This has been a
problem for many years. The city put the
old lime treatment facility back on line
years ago to address this problem. Don't
worry, your drinking water is safe. It is test-
ed several times a day and the appropriate
treatment is taken. That is part of the prob-
lem. This advanced treatment is very ex-
pensive. Also the volume of water this fifty
plus year old plant can produce is limited.
The new well fields and a new water tower
on the north end of town will solve many of
our problems provided the test well pro-;
duces good results as to the quality and;
quantity of water. This will allow for eco-
nomic growth in our community especially

By Eric Musgrove
Editor's note: Suwannee County his-
torian Eric Musgrove agreed to share
with us some of'his writings on Bran-
ford, as well as photos from his collec-
tion. We're proud to present them here.
The major communities within
Suwannee County in the early twenti-
eth century were Live Oak, Branford
and Wellborn. Branford, formerly '
known as Rowland's Bluff, and the lo-
cation of a ferry into Lafayette County
since at least 1880, had grown into a
decent-sized hamlet of some 350 peo-
ple by 1885. In that year, it boasted an
express and telegraph office, two
schools, a Methodist.church, five gen-
eral stores, a drug store, several saw
and grist mills and a hotel to accommo-
date steamboat passengers. In the sur-
rounding area, there were seven turpen-
tine mills and numerous cotton farms.
The bustling frontier community was
incorporated as a town in 1886 as New
Branford, and spanned both sides of
the River. The latter name came from
the Connecticut hometown of Henry B.


Plant, pioneer railroad builder, Florida
financier, and friend of Captain Robert
Ivey, one of the town's early and most
influential settlers. For a period of
time, the part of town on the Lafayette
County side was called West Branford.
Later, the portion of the town on the
west side of the River dried up, the
"New" was dropped, and the town be-
came simply Branford.
Branford was soon a major point
from which steamers hauling timber
and other goods would travel to and
from Cedar Key, and this service was
the town's major business for many
years. The goods would then be
shipped from Cedar Key west to New
Orleans or south to Tampa and beyond.
After the completion of a railroad to
Branford in 1882, naval stores, timber,
and other products were unloaded from
steamboats in Branford and shipped via
railroad to Savannah and other east
coast ports. To facilitate the speedy
transfer of goods from trains to steam-

Branford: A brief history


Continued From Page 7A

boats, the steamboat
docks were located near
the railroad depot on the
banks of the Suwannee
River.
A history of Branford
would not be complete
without discussing Cap-
tain Robert Absalom Ivey.
It was during this period
that Captain Ivey of
Branford became one of
the most prominent
steamboat builders in
Florida. Born in Georgia,
he moved to Florida as a
youth and served in the
Confederate Army as a
water boy. After the war,
Robert and his two broth-
ers, Jess and F. C., moved
to what is now Branford
and began buying up
land. Among his achieve-
ments was the construc-
tion of the famous steam-
boat Belle of the Suwan-
nee, built in 1889 and


named for his daughter,
Bertha. This ship, famous
for her "bridal suite" and
a favorite of honeymoon-
ers, navigated the Suwan-
nee River until at least
1896, when many sources
say that she foundered
during a hurricane. Other
sources state that Belle of
the Suwannee survived
the hurricane-of 1896, al-
beit damaged. These
sources further state that
the boat continued in ser-
vice until 1900, when her
seams opened up not far
from the mouth of the
Suwannee River during
heavy seas and she sank
in eight feet of water; no
lives were lost and much
of her cargo was saved.
Her most famous pilot
was Dan McQueen, a
man of African-American
descent who also piloted
many of the other steam-
boats that frequented the
Suwannee River.

Other, steamboats built;
by'Captain Ivey included
C. D. Owens and two
named Suwanee; These
steamboats were joined
by many others, including
Sam Pyles, Louisa,
Thetis, Three States, and
City of Hawkinsville, the
last steamboat on the
Suwannee. By 1922, she
was moored at Old Town
and allowed to sink at her
berth; she had participat-
ed in hastening her own
demise by transporting
materials necessary to
build a bridge across the
Suwannee River at Old
Town. Today, City of
Hawkinsville 'is now a
Florida Underwater Ar-
chaeological Preserve and
.on the National Register
of Historic Places. Cap-
tain Ivey did not stop
with steamboat building,
however, as he also oper-
ated a hotel that was a
popular stop-off point for
his steamboat passengers.
Today, a riverside park in
Branford is named in his
honor.
In the early 1900s,
Branford had several
mills and cotton gins, a.
cold storage plant, a
bank, a newspaper, a
Board of Trade (which
functioned much like to-
day's Chambers of Com-
merce), and was a center
for farming and livestock.

give you my point of in-
formation. I have been try-
ing to work with my coun-
ty commission for the past
five years on my road,
29th Road, you remember
the one that had the terri-
ble accident on it Christ-

trying to get them to lay

rock, or getting them to
improve that road at all is
basically falling on deaf
ears. I don't think you are
going to get anywhere
with the county at all. The
only way I think it would
be paved is if you went
ahead and won the lottery
and then donated it to the
county specifically for re-

wise, my county commis-

ly, "tough luck," deal with

north of town. As I have already said,
this is one of the most important deci-
sions made by the Council and will have
a far reaching and positive impact on the
economic destiny of our community.,
We received a $3,000,000 grant and a
SRF low interest loan to pay for this pro-
ject. As I have told you before, we are
,ern aggressive in looking for even
penny we can get so these dollars don't
hate to come from your pocket. All are
to be commended for your actions and
efforts.
It's getting close to that time again.
Preparations for the Fall Harvest Festi-
val have been going on for several
months. Support and participation has
been rather sparse over the past several
)ears. I encourage everyone to start
work on your scarecrows and home and
business decorations. The Festival is
sponsored by the Garden Club, Artist


Guild and the Regional Library. This
could be a great event for our communi-
ty with the support of each of you. It
portrays a good image for our communi-
ty and will attract visitors With a few
bucks to spend and give our residents an
enjoyable event to attend. Let's all get in
there and support the Festival.
Remember the "Hometown Democra-
cy" workshop next Tuesday, September
29, at 10:00 in Live Oak City Hall. It is
important that you are educated about
this issue. It will affect economic growth
and add tremendous and unnecessary
expense to local governments. Home-
town democracy sounds great but it's not
what it appears to be. Make yourself
knowledgeable by attending the meet-
ing. Wear your seatbelt on your way
down here
The Council rejected my recommen-
dation for the replacement for the Dis-
trict 3 Council seat I perceive a little
power struggle going on in City Hall
o'er this issue. Some Councilmen have
their own personal agendas and won't be
satisfied until they get their \a\ whether
it might be the best %aay to handle the sit-
uation or not. That's just the way it is.
M.l recommendation %was logical and
just made plain sense. It was my %wish to
take the politics out of this issue. Need-
less to say, you can't take the politics out
of politics, can you?


A closer look at 'Hometown Democracy'


Continued From Page 1A

state ballot in 2010.
Known as the "Florida
Hometown Democracy"
initiative, Amendment 4
would require voter ap-
proval for changes to a
community's land use plan.
Currently, local elected offi-
cials decide such matters.
Dennis Cason,. president
of the Suwannee County
Economic Alliance, said the
meeting is being held to
help the public understand
exactly what they will be
voting on when they go to
the polls.
"A lot of people have not
heard about (Amendment
4), and they won't hear
about it until they walk in to
vote on it, when they pull
that lever, not knowing fully
what it is," he said.


Ryan Houck, executive
director of Floridians for
Smarter Growth, will ap-
pear at Tuesday's meeting to
give information and an-
swer questions from 'the
public..
"Forcing voters to decide
every technical land use
plan amendment thou-
sands each year will not
improve growth manage-
ment," Houck said in a re-
cent article. "It will elimi-
nate it altogether."
For Suwannee County,
and other rural counties in
north Florida, Cason said
Amendment 4 could seri-
ously hamper growth.
"I understand the basis
behind what they are trying
to accomplish from Orlando
and areas south, but what
they have done by putting
this on a statewide ballot, it


going to stop growth," he
said. "When you hear home-
town democracy that sounds
like a godd thing, but if it's
voted on and passed, it will
stop economic growth in the


state of Florida, and the
places that are really going
to get hit bad are these rural
counties. It's really going to
mess up a lot of things, any-
thing dealing with land use."

outstanding program."

rest of the DLC, as of
writing this, the

Many Wastelanders may
have already stumbled
upon the crashed alien
recon ship just north of
the MPDL-13 station, but
if you haven't by now,
this add-on will lead you
to it. Upon discovery of
the wrecked vehicle, you
and the craft are caught in
a tractor beam coming
down from the sky and
soon you are rising off the
ground with no escape.
SAfter an introduction of
this add-on's chief
enemies, the aliens, you
are probed and then
locked in a cell with
another abductee.
I'd like to say that after
you and your newfound
friend escape from your
cell, you are allowed to
explore the ship to your
heart's content. This
expansion is just as
straightforward as
Operation: Anchorage
e was, if not shorter and
more closed in. That's not
to say you won't get to
see some interesting.

of the ship. For a hilarious
animation, try walking off
the side of the ship, but be
sure to save before you do
this!
In my opinion, the high
point of Mothership Zeta
is the cast of characters
that you join forces with
in order to escape the
ship. You start with a
woman who may or may
not be a Slaver, and you
quickly meet other quirky
characters. These include
a very confused Japanese-
speaking samurai to an
eight-year-old girl who
has been on the ship for
nearly 200 years. You'll
learn to love these friends,
however, since each of
them will assist you in
defeating your alien foes.
The second thing that
Mothership Zeta has
going for it is that it gives
you access to a lot of alien
weaponry. Granted, these
will probably only be
loved by those skilled in
Energy Weapons or those,
sci-fi' geeks among us;
trust me, I'm one. My,
personal favorite: the
drone cannon; definitely
make sure to add one to
your arsenal. Rest
assured, you aren't stuck
with these weapons
throughout the expansion;


you'll quickly find your
items confiscated from
you upon arrival on the
ship.
Bethesda did try to add
in a little backstory in the
form of audio logs
scattered throughout
Mothership Zeta. Some of
these are actually really
interesting, but a few of
them could've been
expanded upon more. It's
a shame to see the
amazing writing of Fallout
falter here, which I hope
won't happen very often. I
suppose in the end this is
just another of the small
flaws that could've been
ironed out; like being
unable to fight to your full
potential inside of the
cramped hallways and
rooms.
In the end, I'd
recommend this just
because of the new
location, new weapons
and new Achievements,
plus every Fallout fanboy
absolutely has to use the
Death Ray at least once.
I'll give Mothership Zeta
a B. Now get up there and
disintegrate some alien
invaders!

10 tips for an easy-care veggie garden


Most folks have finished their soil solarization, added their compost
and started planting. For those of you who are late bloomers, you can still
get some crops in for a fall garden. Here are a few tips to make your veg-
etable gardens a success.

N ''"S-2 ., 1).Grow in raised beds or raised rows by adding as much organic mat-
p." ter that you can produce, obtain from a farmer or afford to buy.

2) Select cultivars that do best in North Florida. These are listed in
r UF/IFAS Extension's "Vegetable Gardening Guide" pick up one for free
at our office or go online at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/.

3) Put newspapers or weed block down in all path areas and even in
raised beds or row areas and then cover with mulch like pine straw or
'""' ... wood chips.

4) Install a micro-irrigation system to reduce wasting of water and over

to reduce weed growth and make it easier to mow around. It also reduces
the need to string trim (weedeat).

RIGHT: Raised

6) Put down newspapers and mulch all walking paths with pine straw
or some other kind of mulch.

7) Use vertical growing methods to grow snow peas and other climb-
ing crops. A simple way to do this is just using 2 or 3 metal fence posts
and tying a string to them or if you have access to bamboo you can make
teepees for the climbing crops.

8) For those folks with back or knee problems, consider cutting 55-gal-
lon drums in half either long ways to make a trough or in half across the
middle to make large pots. Be sure to drill some holes for drainage. The
large pots make great containers for growing tomatoes. You can also fill
the bottoms of these container about 1/3 of the way with Styrofoam
peanuts or pine park mulch. This will reduce the amount of compost or
potting soil needed.

9) You can extend the season of your garden by adding wire or PVC
hoops with either screen when it's still too hot and sunny for some crops
or when it gets too cold, frost cloth can be stretched across them.

10) Be sure and plant some flowers that attract pollinators like bees,
wasps, moths and butterflies. Bringing in these pollinators will help in-
sure fruit set. Consider planting carnation, foxglove, gazania, pansy, petu-
nias, shasta daisy, snapdragon and verbena during the cooler months.

The Suwannee County Master Gardener Volunteers have
set up a small vegetable garden demonstration at the fair-
grounds next to the poultry barn. Feel free to stop by and
Stake a look at it for more ideas. You can see raised beds, ver-
tical gardening, planters. made for people who may use
wheelchairs, the asphalt shingles and the hoop system. For

Mayor's pick for council seat denied


Continued From Page 1A

ratify Nott, deadlocking 2-
2. John Hale and Bennie
Thomas voted against the
nomination, while Ed
Rewis and Mark Stewart
voted in the affirmative.
Tuesday's meeting was
originally advertised as the
final public hearing on the
city budget and millage
rate for the coming year.
However, the county com-
mission had its final bud-
get hearing scheduled for
the. same day and time.
Florida law requires that
competing taxing bodies
hold such meetings at dif-
ferent times. The city bud-
get hearing would have to
be postponed.
Since the public hearing
was already scheduled if
only for the purpose of
postponing the proceed-
ings Nobles decided to


use the opportunity to
nominate Nott. However,
only topics previously ad-
vertised can be discussed
at governmental public
hearings. An emergency
city council meeting would
have to be called for the
same day and time in order
to legally conduct other
business.
Nobles said he gave no-
tice of the meeting to City
Clerk Jimmy McCullers on
Friday.
"It's the clerk's responsi-
bility to notify the press
and the public. It always
has been," said Nobles.
McCullers said the fault
is his alone.
"I failed to notify the
public," said McCullers. "I
did not immediately make
up an agenda and I take full
responsibility. It was just
an oversight on my part."
Hale said the nomination


should have been delayed
to give residents more no-
tice. f
"Personally I didn't see
the need to call an emer-
gency meeting to make that
announcement," said Hale.
"But that's the mayor's
call."
Nobles said he had no ul-
terior 'motives for rushing
the nomination, other than
making sure District 3 was
represented.
"It's certainly no secret,"
said Nobles. "There was
some urgency in getting,
somebody to fill that posi-
tion."
Thomas said he didn't
know the mayor was going
to make a recommendation
until about an hour before
the meeting.
"It was a last minute
thing," said Thomas. "This
is a young people world
now, not an old one. I don't
have anything against Mr.
Nott, but why would you go
back when you need to go
forward."
Hale agreed.
"I think it's time for the
old guard to move on and
the younger people to bring
in fresh ideas," he said. "I
just don't think that Mr.
Nott needed that kind of
stress at this time of his
life."
Nott will be 91 in De-
cember.
Hale said 'he was in-
formed Monday of the
mayor's intent to .recom-
mend Nott.
Council President Mark
Stewarf said Nott would

have been ideal for the po-
sition.
"I think it was as it
should have been. I didn't
want anyone in that posi-
tion that wanted to run for
it," he said. "I was in com-
plete agreement with Mr.
Nott because he's not going
to try to be elected to the


position and he has the ex-
perience to fill in for the
nine months."
City elections are sched-
uled for May.
"I was disappointed with
the other votes last night,"
said Rewis.
"I thought it was a good
recommendation. I think


we need somebody who's
not going to run and just fill
in between now and the
elections," said Rewis. "He
(Nott) knows the workings
of the city, he knows what's
going on."
Nobles will make anoth-
er recommendation to the
council at a future meeting.

Edward Seifert, public in-
formation officer for

The Columbia County
Sheriffs Office has made '
several arrests stemming
from a lengthy investiga-
tion into vehicle burglaries
in Columbia County. Over
the past six weeks, roughly
40 vehicles, were burglar-
ized. The suspects targeted
residential neighborhoods
in central Columbia Coun-
ty including, Wise Estates,
Emerald Lakes, Callahan,

Columbia County au-
thorities are working close-
ly with the Suwannee
County Sheriffs Office to
determine if the arrested
subjects are linked to bur-
glaries in Suwannee Coun-
ty.
The suspects found
some vehicles unlocked
but also forced entry into
several cars by breaking
windows, said Seifert.
Items stolen included GPS
units, laptop computers, -
gaming consoles and
CD/DVDs.
During the early morn-
ing hours of Sunday, the
suspects were burglarizing
a vehicle in the Calloway

Charged with grand
theft, obstruction by a dis-
guised person and operat-

without a commercial dri-
ver's license was Michael
Lavon Barnes, 38, of
Cleveland.
According to investiga-

ing pet food headed 'for
Lakeland when officers at
the interdiction station
were alerted on a law en-

number.
After a brief pursuit on I-
10, the suspect pulled off to
the side of the road and re-
portedly presented another
man's driver's license and
said he had purchased the
vehicle under that name.
The vehicle, whose value is
estimated at $52,600, was
reported stolen in
Brunswick, Ga., last week,
officers said. Barnes was
booked into the Suwannee

POLICE

Live Oak man charged with

strangling girlfriend


A Live Oak man was arrested recently
for slapping then strangling his girl-
friend in an altercation that took place at
the couple's residence located at 15759
72nd Place, according to a Suwannee
County sheriffs report.
Ricardo Hernandez Velazquez, 28,
was taken into police custody Sept. 17
after his girlfriend called 911 while arm-
iing herself with a golf club.
According to the report, the couple
was involved in a verbal dispute that es-
calated into a physical fight. Authorities
say Velazquez first slapped then grabbed
the victim around the throat, cutting off
her airway as he forced her into the
front doorway of their residence. The


victim was able to open the door, which
allowed her to break free of Velazquez's
grip. She then retreated into the front
yard as Velazquez reportedly chased her
and grabbed her shirt, causing it to rip.
Velazquez grabbed the victim by the
hair and continued to physically restrain
her, the report shows. The victim broke
free a second time and retreated back
into the residence where she armed her-
self with a club and placed the call for
help.
Velazquez has been charged with
felony battery and domestic battery by
strangulation, according to information
found on the sheriffs website.

Man arrested for dealing in stolen

property, trespassing


Angel Jonathon Rodriquez, 20, of Live
Oak was arrested Sunday and charged
with dealing in stolen merchandise and
trespassing after police discovered that he
had sold stolen merchandise from a bur-
glarized building, reports show. Police
found Rodriquez hiding in a field on that
same property just a day after a burglary
had been reported there.
According to a Suwannee County sher-
iffs report, Rodriquez was found hiding
in a field a short distance from the build-
ing by a deputy patrolling the area. The
report states that the building sits on
about 80 acres of farmland. The proper-
ty's owner was contacted and told authori-
ties that no one should be on the property.
Rodriquez told the deputy that he had
come to the property to break into a shed
to steal copper wire that he heard was in


the building. He said he was going to
steal the wire, bum it andsell it, accord- -
ing to the sheriffs report. Rodriquez said
he did not get the chance to enter the
building because the deputy arrived on
the scene. Once in custody, Rodriquez re-
portedly told authorities that a friend had
broken into the building several times.
Rodriquez said his friend gave him two
pieces of stolen equipment, which Ro-
driquez confessed he sold at a local pawn
shop.
In addition to the two aforementioned
charges, Rodriquez was also charged with
loitering and prowling.

Man charged in January theft of jewelry


Travis Hill, 23, of Lee was arrested
Tuesday and charged with grand theft
and dealing in stolen property after au-
thorities reportedly traced a stolen dia-
mond ring which had been pawned at a
Live Oak jewelry shop back to him.
According to a sheriffs report, Hill
stole the ring sometime between Jan. 3
and Jan. 7 before pawning it for $100 in
cash. The victim told authorities that
Hill had been at her home on Jan. 4.
According to the report, the ring's
owner checked with local jewelers at


Hometown Jewelry and Loan where she
was able to identify the pawned item as
the one missing from her home. Authori-
ties were contacted and were able to
identify Hill as the individual who had
peddled the pawned ring and a bracelet,
both of which belonged to the-victim.
Hill used his own identification during
the pawn transaction. Authorities were
able to recover the pawn ticket from the
local business. The ring was reportedly
valued at $3,600.

A FRIEND INDEED

Selfless act gives Live Oak
native a new lease on life


Continued From Page IA

tion, Jaliaan, 57, a 1971
Suwannee High graduate,
and brother to Mike Jones
and Darrow Jones of Live
Oak, faced the possibility
of; perpetual dialysis treat-
ments. The former Suwan-
nee High star basketball
player was diagnosed with
the hypertension and kid-
ney disease, which eventu-
ally shut down both his
kidneys.
That's when his friend,
Qa'id Aqeel, stepped in to
help.
Aqeel, 36, an Oakland
youth worker and longtime
friend of Jahaan, says he
always viewed Jahaan as a
mentor and model citizen
and said the decision was
easy.
"There was nothing to
think twice about," Aqeel
said. "I got tested. I was a
match."
And so he did what he
felt he should. He volun-
teered to give Jahaan his
left kidney.
Upon hearing the news,
Jahaan's family and friends
in Live Oak rallied behind
him in prayerful support.
Some included his cousin
Kenny Hankerson and
long-time friend Willie
McClendon, a deacon at
Sweet Hope Baptist
Church, along with the
church's congregation. Ja-
haan's sister-in-law Anita
Williams, a Live Oak na-
tive who now resides in
Los Angeles, took a week
from work to be at his side.
Both he and Aqeel under-
stood the risks they faced.
"The doctors kept men-
tioning the risk of death,"


Aqeel said. "But when
you've got faith in God,
you've got nothing to be
worried about."
Aqeel said it was the
least he could do for Ja-
haan, whom he first meet
when the two worked in so-
cial work together at Uji-
ma, an Adult and Family
Services program in 1997.
Aqeel later lived with Ja-
haan and wife, Constance
Jones, while he attended
grad school at California
State University at Hay-
ward.
"I know what it's like to
be in a situation and feel
like no one is there for
you," Aqeel said. "It was
because of love. (Jahaan's)
been a blessing to me, he
and his wife."
And so the friends went
under the knife together on
Aug. 12.
Now, with just a. little
over a month passed, both
men are back doing what
they love.
"I was able to get back to
work after 30 days," said
Jahaan, who has worked for
the San Jose juvenile jus-
tice system for the past 15
years. "All the vitals came
out great, and the doctors
are pleased with every-
thing."
Aqeel says the same
about his recovery.
"The only thing I have
problems with is sitting
idle," he joked over the
phone. "I will never fully
understand the magnitude
of what I did for (Jahaan).
People tell me I did a good
thing. But it's about his
happiness. He had a bigger
impact on me than I ever
did on him."

to. Cooks and Webb were charged with a home invasion
robbery in the 1100 block of 2nd Street
Shaw said police are still searching for 15-year-old
Tyler Austin Carter. Carter was identified by photo lineup
for allegedly attempting to invade a home in the: Live Oak
Pines mobile home park. According to Shaw, Carter has
since relocated to Leon County where he has absconded
from probation.
Twenty-four home invasions robberies have been re-
ported in the city since December.

Terry Mixon: Hall of Famer


By Tom Daniels
This year the Suwannee High School
Hall of Fame will welcome a familiar yet
new member, Coach Terry Mixon. Many
believe his first name is "Coach." After all,
Terry has coached something every year
throughout his 30-year teaching/coaching
career. Terry has served as varsity baseball,
varsity softball, varsity bowling and
varsity boys and girls golf coach. Coach
has also served as an assistant on the
football staff on more than one occasion as
well as assisting in the basketball and


baseball programs. When not coaching
varsity programs Coach can be found at
the middle school. He has served as head
baseball and basketball coach as well as
helping fellow Hall of Famer Coach
Robinson with the football program. Terry
is currently the Suwannee Middle School
athletic director ... again.
Long before he was Coach Mixon, Terry
was one of the best athletes to come
through Suwannee High. He earned seven

goal is to get better each week. Hopefully our focus will be better, our intensity will be
better and we will play better." Photo: Lawanna Gaylard


Mike Jones: Hall of Famer


By Tom Daniels
"The Whole Town's Talking About
The Jones Boy" was a the title of a
popular 50s song. It was also what was
being said on Suiwannee's basketball
courts and baseball diamonds from
1978 through 1981: Mike Jones was a
four year lettermian in both sports and
was named best all around athlete his
senior year.
The Suwannee Sports Hall of Fame
will be inducting Mike this Friday
night at Langford Stadium. Jones
scored over 1,700 points in his-,
basketball career at Suwannee high as a
shooting forward and was selected to
the All Area and All State basketball
teams from 1979 to 1981. Upon
graduation Mike received many,
basketball scholarship offers, but
choose Valdosta State because they
would allow him to play baseball.
Mike was a talented high school
baseball player and starred on a Terry


Mixon-coached baseball team his
senior year at Suwannee. He led his
team in batting and home runs. He
played the outfield as well as being a
top-flight pitcher. Mike continued to
play two sports his freshman and
sophomore years at VSU.
After two years as a two-sport athlete
at VSU Mike turned his attention to
baseball. While at Valdosta he was
selected to the All Conference Team as
Swell as being selected to the All
American Team. Mike led the 1985
VSU team and holds the record for
most hits, most at bats and best on base
percentage. He was inducted into the
Valdosta Baseball Hall of Fame in
2001.
Jones was a 13th round selection of
the Toronto Blue Jays in 1985 and
played Double-A. baseball for four
years. The Blue Jays won the World

varsity letters at Suwannee.
He was named to the first
team Florida Star
Conference Team in
football and baseball both
his junior and senior years
as well as first team
basketball his senior year.
He was named MVP in
both baseball and basketball
and won the Paul Langford
outstanding athlete award.
Terry went to Abraham
Baldwin Agricultural Junior
College on a baseball
scholarship and led the
team in batting and stolen
bases as their starting
shortstop. He received
scholarship- offers from

Georgia Southern where he
finally decided to go.
Playing for the Southern

outcome. Far West people
certainly have someone
from USC in mind. The
Southwest has already
made up its mind also. So
here is the dilemma.
You're a candidate for the
Heisman and you beat
Penn State and Jo Pa like a
drum. Do you get votes for
being that good or does it
cost you because you did
your best Attila
impersonation? Does
Charlie Ward ever consider
voting for a Gator? Did
Steve Spurrier vote for
Charlie Ward? Better yet,
did Steve vote for Tim
Tebow?
Where are we going?
Just south of here about


coach before being named
Suwannee's varsity
basketball coach, where he
served from 1990 to 1993.
Mike is employed by the
Department of Corrections
and has been married to
Jackie Williams Jones for
22 years. They have two
children, Anitra and
Marquis.

408 miles is a place called
Miami. They have a
football team, the
Hurricanes, not to be
confused with the
Dolphins. They have a
quarterback named Jacory
Harris'who is going to steal
some Tebow votes away.
To ensure against this
Tebow only needs to go
undefeated or at least win
another national
championship. Not
something that is done
every season.
The SEC is without
doubt the strongest football
conference in the nation.
When Ole Miss is in the
top 5 and teams like
Alabama, LSU, Georgia
and Tennessee are annually
ranked, you're tough.
Hopefully the voters will
take that into consideration
and forgive the Gators for
playing their first two
opponents.
The race for the Heisman
has just begun. It doesn't
insure a pro career or a big
signing bonus but it does
give you immortality. After
all, who would have ever
remembered the coach at
Auburn, some guy named
John Heisman.

Self-control


Self-control is the final virtue which Paul lists as the fruit of the Spirit
in Galations 5:22-23. Self-control is a translation of the Greek word
"egkratia" and may also be rendered as temperance. This virtue is
exemplified by the person who has
mastered their passions and appetites. .
The Greeks also had a word for the
vice Of lacking self-control, i.e.,
"akrasia" which referred to the "
phenomenon of knowing the right
thing to do but failing to do it. This lack
of self-control is something with .
which all of us struggle, often to our
own detriment. Proverbs 25:28 warns ,
us that "A man without self-control is
like a city broken into and left without .
walls." And, St. James tells us that our
religion worthless if we cannot
control our tongues: "If any one thinks
he is religious, and does not bridle his
tongue but deceives his heart, this man's religion is in vain." (James
1:26) But of course, taming the tongue is more difficult than taming a
wild beast. Socrates said that the appetitive part of our soul, the part
of our self concerned with our appetites and passions, was like an
unruly steed which needed to be reined in by reason. But sadly, reason
is too weak in most of us to rein in the passions, and therefore, we
need divine assistance. Where the flesh is weak, and reason is willing
and able to follow the flesh, we must rely on the Spirit to guide us. In
the final analysis, we cannot rely solely on our own devices to be
self-controlled, but must seek the assistance of God.

And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified th& flesh
with its passions and desires.

Protection from ourselves


The real "Real Age"


Are you ready for some
football? Football season is
in full swing, and thanks to
all the sports channels
available these days, Mon-
day night football has
turned into Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursday;
you get the idea. Admitted-
ly, I may not know all the
penalties and rules about
football, I did spend many
years in the stands watch-
ing my oldest son play. I
can ice down a knee and
boil a mouth guard with


the best of them. Speaking
of mouth guards, those coverings
used to protect a player's teeth
and mouth from injury, (as well
as a parents investment of many,
dollars worth of braces!) we
could sure use a similar piece of
equipment that would protect our
mouths from causing injury in
our relationships.
What kind of restrictions have
you chosen to set on your
speech? Cursing and swearing
mnay be the first things that come
to mind, but what about those
slang substituteu" words that
everyone knows what word they
are standing in for? What about
gossiping and criticizing people
behind their back? In Ephesians.
4:29, the Bible has a one-size fits
all mouth guard: "Do not let un-
wholesome talk come out of your
mouths, but only what is helpful
for building others up according
to their needs, that it may benefit
those who listen."
According to Family Life Min-
istry founders, Dennis and Bar-
bara Rainey, "If we hope to con-
trol the wild tongues in our fami-
ly, we must first clean up the
words that flow from our own.
The way you speak to each other,
knd to your children must set the
course. Do your children hear you
using unwholesome speech to de-


Heart

Matters

scribe your neighbors
or coworkers? What
comments do they
hear you making
about your boss, pas-
tor, or when someone
cuts you off in traf-
fic?
As a generation, we
have lost the concept
of being able to dis-
agree with someone's
position without be-
ing disrespectful to
them or attacking
their character, and


sadly this is;being
modeled by too many of our po-
litical leaders, celebrities and
those elsewhere in the spotlight.
Perhaps some fancy, overpriced
mouth guards should be the next
fashion fad!
We must never forget that mu-
tual respect is the foundation of
all healthy relationships, and the.
way we portray that respect first
and foremost is with the words
that we allow to come out of our
mouths. In Proverbs 141:3, David
asks God to "Set a guard over my
mouth, 0 Lord; keep watch over
the door of my lips." We would
all do well to make the same re-
quest and get our mouth guard in
place before we enter the playing
field, because our relationships
and our hearts matter.

Blessings, Angie

Maul

"Rejoice in A,
the Lord
always. I will
say it again:
Rejoice! Let ..
your
gentleness be evident to all.
The Lord is near. Do not be
anxious about anything, but in
everything, by prayer and
petition, with thanksgiving,-
present your requests to God."
(Philippians 4: 4-6)
This morning I was doing
my "walk the dog" thing and
had one of those "out of body"
experiences where it felt like I
was someone else, watching *
myself walk the dog. Weird,
huh?
What I noticed was an
ostensibly middle-aged man
kicking an acorn along the
sidewalk counting how many
times he could kick the same
acorn before losing it, and
then starting over to improve
the score! A little later I
noticed the same guy,
balancing along the top of a
long landscape timber. Then I
saw him with a handful of
acorns,'pitching them at mail-
boxes just to hear the metallic
"ping" when they hit just
right.
It was during the mailbox
pinging incident that I back
inside my own head by. this -
time observed a man looking
at me as if I were not quite
right. He' was standing
halfway down his driveway in
a bathrobe, wearing sandals
and black socks halfway to his

knees, puffing on a big cigar
and scowling.
Wow, I thought, waving
brightly in his direction with a
cheery "Good morning!" He
looks really, really old.
However, on closer
examination I walked over to
introduce him to Scout he
was probably a few years
younger than me.
So I spent most of the rest
of the walk thinking about the
idea of age, and how much of
an impact our approach to life
has on the process. Then.- just
ten minutes ago at this writing
- I took one of those "Real
Age" tests on line.
Chronologically I'm 53.4. The
test put me at.45.1, based on
their mostly health-related
criterion.
Interesting. But, if I
developed a "Real Age" test it
would include items such as,
"Given the opportunity to
walk on the sidewalk or
balance along a landscape
timber, what would you .
choose?" Or, "Do acorns.on,
the sidewalk annoy you while
you puff your big fat cheroot,
or do you scoop them up and
throw them at things, just for.
fun?" and the all important
"What do you read first when
you open the newspaper in the
morning, the front page .news
headlines or the comics'?"
The test would also include
such items as:

How often do you go out
on a date with your wife?
Do, you wrestle your dog
on a daily basis?
Do you sometimes open


the roof and the windows in
, your car and
listen to loud rock-'n-roll
while driving?
Do your nieces and
nephews find you fun, or
boring?
When you awake first
thing in the morning, are you
grateful or irritable?
What kind of aura
surrounds you? Is it 'joie de
vivre',
'Philippians 4:4-6', or
gloom and doom?

The list could go on, but I
think you catch my drift. That
kind of test may have some of
us come in at ".21" again,
"16", or even "6".
Many of us, on the other
hand, would receive a
resounding designation of
"Over the Hill."
This morning my Bible
reading reminded me that I am
God's child, and that I have
eternity stretched out before
me to discover and to engage
with a fresh and renewed spirit
every day.
What does the way we live
say about our spiritual age?.

Grace and Peace

GAME OF THE WEEK

Miami at Virginia Tech


T having already put the quarterback back into "Quar-
terback U," Miami sophomore Jacory Harris will
Jt lead the resurgent Hurricanes into Blacksburg, Va.,
this Saturday afternoon for what may be the school's most
significantAtlantic Coast Conference game.
Harris' rise has played an instrumental role in Miami's
renaissance. Through the first two games of the seasotl,
Harris has thrown for 656 yards and once again made the
Hurricanes a national championship contender.
Not much has gone right for Miami since a controver-
sial pass interference call in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl against
Ohio State denied the Hurricanes a sixth national cham-
pionship. The move from the Big East to the ACC prior to
the 2004 season failed to produce the desired results and
stripped the program of some of its swagger.
Third-year head coach Randy Shannon entered the
season on the hot seat, but the skeptics have seemed to
disappear after wins over nationally ranked conference
foes Florida State and Georgia Tech. The next test in a
crucial four-game gauntlet of ranked teams comes against
former Big East rival and two-time defending conference
champion Virginia Tech, which is coming off one of the
most emotional wins in school history and looking to
maintain its stranglehold on the league.
Records: Miami 2-0 (2-0 ACC Coastal); Virginia Tech
2-1 (0-0 ACC Coastal). Coaches: Miami's Randy Shannon
(14-13); Virginia Tech's Frank Beamer (221-113-4). Series:
Miami leads 17-9. Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday. TV:'
ABC/ESPN.
Key for Miami: Keeping Harris upright The Hurri-
canes have yielded only two sacks this season and Harris
ranks third nationally in pass efficiency. Key for Virginia
Tech: Getting more out of Tyrod Taylor. Although he
proved his resolve against Nebraska, the junior quarter-
back has completed less than 50 percent of his passes and
has collected just 10 yards on 26 carries this season.

THE REST OF THE MATCHUPS
North Carolina at Georgia Tech
Records: North Carolina 3-0 (0-0 ACC Coastal); Georgia
Tech 2-1 (1-1 ACC Coastal). Coaches: North Carolina's
Butch Davis (66-33); Georgia Tech's Paul Johnson
(11844). Series: Georgia Tech leads 23-18-3. Kickoff:
SNoon ET Saturday. TV: Raycom Sports.
Key for North Carolina: Avoid punting the ball to
Georgia Tech sophomore Jerrard Tarrant, who has scored
on two returns this season and leads the nation with an
average of 43.0 yards per punt return. Key for Georgia
Tech: Re-establishing the running game.Tlle conferences
top-ranked rushing offense picked up only 95 yards on 39
carries in a 16-point loss to Miami on Sept 18:.
South Florida at Florida State
Records: South Florida 3-0 (0-0 Big East); Florida State 2-1
(0-1 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: South Florida's Jim Leavitt
(90-52); Florida State's Bobby Bowden (384-124-4). Series:
First meeting. Kickoff: Noon ET Saturday. TV: ESPNU.
Key for South Florida: Get redshirt-freshman quar-
terback BJ. Daniels ready to handle a baptism by fire.
Daniels is replacing the Big East's all-time leader in total
offense, Matt Grothe, after the senior quarterback suf-
fered a season-ending torn anterior cruciate ligament in
this past Saturday's 59-0 win over Charleston Southern.
Key for Florida State: Third-down efficiency. A 12-for-15
showing on third down enabled the Seminoles to garner
511 yards of total offense in this past Saturday's 54-28 win
at BYU.


Wake Forest at Boston CoUege
Records: Wake Forest 2-1 (0-0 ACC Atlantic); Boston Col-
lege 2-1 (0-1 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Wake Foresfs Jim
Grobe (89-78-1); Boston College's Frank Spaziani (3-1).
Series: Boston College leads 8-6-2. Kickoff: 2 p.m. ET
Saturday. TV: ESPN360.com.... .
Key for Wake F6rest Duplicating last week's suc ss
against the nation's fifth-ranked pass defense- Senior .
quarterback Riley Skinner threw for a career-high 289
yards and three touchdown passes, including a career-long
80-yarder, in the 28-point win over Elon. Key for Boston
College: Find what works for an offense that collected only
54 yards on 49 plays in this past Saturday's 25-7 loss at
Clemson.
Pittsburgh at N.C. State
Records: Pittsburgh 3-0 (0-0 Big East); N.C. State 2-1 (0-0
ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Pittsburgh's Dave Wannstedt
(28-23); N.C. State's Tom O'Brien (88-60). Series: Pitts-
burgh leads 5-2-1. Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday. TV:
ESPNU.
Key for Pittsburgh: Another big game from freshman
sensation Dion Lewis, who ranks sixth among Football
Bowl Subdivision players with a rushing average of 132.7
yards per game. Key for N.C. State: Staying on course. The
N.C. State offense has cruised the past two weeks, while
the nation's second-ranked defense has yielded only 28
points through the first three games.
Rutgers at Maryland
Records: Rutgers 2-1 (0-1 Big East); Maryland 1-2 (0-0

Key for Rutgers: Generate something off a return game
that ranks 104th and 113th among FBS teams in punt
return and kickoff return yardage. Key for Maryland: A
suspect defense needs to slow Rutgers running back Joe
Martinek and place the pressure on quarterback Tom
Savage, who completed 11 of his 28 attempts this past
Saturday in a 23-15 win over Florida International and is
averaging 6.3 yards per attempt against FBS foes.

Keyl or TCU:D6oiinate the line of scrimmage. The' .
potential BCS-buster Horned Frogs lead the nation in

IM OULM This past Saturday's
31-17 victory'over East
Carolina marked the third straight game
that North Carolina held an opponent

Nebraska tailback Roy Helu
was the third different back in as many
games to rush for over 100 yards against

made the 2000s the
winningest decade in program history
with this past Saturday's 35-7 victory
over visiting Elon. Wake Forest has won
56 of its school-record 58 wins this
decade under Jim Grobe, who is the

O 2009 Sports News Bureau Inc.
GAME OF THE WEEK

Arkansas at Alabama


Hog heaven n
although it has yet to produce the desired results,
Arkansas' high-octane passing attack should make
things interesting in the Southeastern Conference
this season.
Second-year Razorbacks head coach Bobby Petrino
built an offensive juggernaut at Louisville and led the
Cardinals to a mark of 41-9 from 2003 to 2006. After 13
games as the Atlanta Falcons head coach, Petrino bolted to
Fayetteville in December 2007 with designs of revolution-
izing Arkansas' football culture.
The 2008 season was a year of indoctrination for the
Razorbacks-as they posted a 5-7 record that included wins
over two ranked opponents and a season-ending 31-30 vic-'
tory over LSU. Senior quarterback Casey Dick completed
57.4 percent of his passes arid threw for 2,586 yards in
Arkansas' new offense despite having to learn the entire
system on the fly.
SUnlike Dick, Michigan transfer Ryan Mallett had more
than a year to grasp Petrino's philosophy. Just two games
into his Razorbacks career, Mallett leads the nation in
passing efficiency and directs an offense that is averaging
427.5 passing yards per game .
However, the defense did not look like a unit that
returned 10 starters from last year in this past Saturday's
52-41 loss to Georgia.'Until some improvement is seen
on that side of the ball, shootouts will define Arkansas'
season.
Records: Arkansas 1-1 (0-1 SEC West); Alabama 3-0 (0-0
SEC West). Coaches: Arkansas' Bobby Petrino (47-17);
Alabama's Nick Saban (113-50-1). Series: Alabama leads
11-8. Kickoff: 2:30 p.m. CT'Saturday.TV: CBS.
Key for Arkansas: The Razorbacks cannot continue to
waste Michael Smith's talent. The senior running back
and preseason All-SEC selection has just 12 carries this
season. Key for Alabama: Locking down Arkansas wide
receivers Jarius Wright and Joe Adams, who rank sixth
and 23rd, respectively, among Football Bowl Subdivision
players in receiving yards per game.

THE REST OF THE MATCHUPS
Mississippi at South CaroUna
Records: Mississippi 2-0 (0-0 SEC West); South Carolina J
2-1 (0-1 SEC East). Coaches: Mississippi's Houston Nutt
(122-74); South Carolina's Steve Spurrier (172-63-2).
Series: Mississippi leads 8-6. Kickoff: 7:30 p.m. ETThurs-
day. TV: ESPN.
Key for Mississippi: Turn up the intensity. The Rebels
had a bye week before jumping out to a 38-3 third-
quarter lead against Football Championship Subdivision
foe Southeastern Louisiana this past Satui-day. Key for
South Carolina: Winning the turnover battle. Both teams
currently rank among the top 12 FBS teams in turnover
margin, but the Gamecocks picked up 81 yards, including
a 29-yard touchdown by Nathan Pepper, on two fumble
returns in last year's 31-24 win over the Rebels.
LSU at Mississippi State
Records: LSLU 3-0 (1-0 SEC West); Mississippi State 2-1 (1-1
SEC West). Coaches: LSU's Les Miles (73-32); Mississippi
State's Dan Mullen (2-1). Series: LSU leads 66-33-3. Kick-
off: 11:20 a.m. CT Saturday. TV: SEC Network-
Key for LSU: Success against a secondary that ranks
13th iand 16th, respectively, among FBS teams in pass-
efficiency defense and pass yards allowed per game. Key
for Mississippi State: Getting a big game from senior
running back Anthony Dixon. Dixon, who was suspended
for the season-opening win over Jackson State, has rushed


Illustrauon 2u9 ruce rPante ptaneuiK.com;)


lay be at hand
for 215 yards the past two weeks against Auburn and
Vanderbilt.


Florida at Kentucky
Records: Florida 3-0 (1-0 SEC East); Kentucky 2-0 (0-0 SEC
East): Coaches: Florida's Urban Meyer (86-17); Kentucky's
Rich Brooks (125-150-4). Series: Florida leads 41-17. Kick-.
off: 6 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: ESPN2.
Key for Florida: Handling the injuries,sustained in this
past Saturday's 23-13 win over Tennessee and a flu bug
that has limited several key players. Key for Kentucky:
Touches for Derrick Locke, who ranks ninth nationally
among FBS players in average all-purpose yards per game
after collecting 119 yards from scrimmage and 191 yards
and a score on four kickoff returns in this past-Saturday's
31-27 win over Louisville.
Ball State at Auburn
Records: Ball State 0-3 (0-0 MAC West); Auburn 3-0 (1-0
SEC West). Coaches: Ball State's Stan Parrish (57-45-2);
Auburn's Gene Chizik (8-19). Series: Auburn leads 2-0.
Kickoff: 6 p.m. CT Saturday. TV: Fox Sports South.
Key for Ball State: Offensive production. The Cardinals
rank 112th among FBS teams with an average of 270.3
yards per game and 119th nationally with a team pass-
efficiency rating of 82.94. Key for Auburn: Work on forcing
three-and-outs. Auburn opponents have converted 46.5
percent of their third-down opportunities this season.
Ohio at Tennessee
Records: Ohio 2-1 (0-0 MAC East); Tennessee 1-2 (0-1 SEC
East). Coaches: Ohio's Frank Solich (83-46); Tennessee's
Lane Kiffin (1-2). Series: First meeting. Kickoff: 7 p.m. ET
Saturday. TV: Pay-per-view.
Key for Ohio: Stopping Montario Hardesty and the
Tennessee rushing attack. Connecticut had two 100-yard
rushers in a season-opening win over the Bobcats, and
Cal-Poly's Jordan Yocum ran for 130 yards on 27 carries in
this past Saturday's 28-10 setback. Key for Tennessee: The
passing game needs to show improvement after a pair of .
lackluster outings against UCLA and Florida.
Arizona State at Georgia
Records: Arizona State 2-0 (0-0 Pac-10); Georgia 2-1 (2-0
SEC East). Coaches: Arizona State's Dennis Erickson
(165-75-1); Georgia's Mark Richt (84-23). Series: Georgia
leads 1-0. Kickoff: 7 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: ESPNU.
Key for Arizona State: Special teams play. The Sun
Devils lead the country in kickoff returns and rank 14th
in punt returns, while the Bulldogs have the nation's
bestnet punting average of 47.4 yards. Key for Georgia:
Discover ways to exploit a defense thatTanks first among
FBS teams in yards allowed, pass efficiency defense and
turnover margin,
Vanderbilt at Rice,
Records: Vanderbilt 1-2 (0-2 SEC East); Rice 0-3 (0-1 Con-
ference USA West). Coaches: Vanderbilt's Bobby Johnson
(88-94); Rice's David Bailiff (34-30). Series: Vanderbilt
leads 3-1. Kickoff: 7 p.m. CT Saturday. TV:
Key for Vanderbilt: More success through the air. After
completing 10-of-18 for 153 yards in the season-opener
against Western Carolina, quarterback Larry Smith threw
for 212 yards on 23-of-56 passing in conference losses to
LSU and MississippL Key for Rice: Defensive pride. In
addition to ranking dead last among the 120 FBS teams in
points allowed, the Owls are 110th or worst in sacks, tack-
led for loss, pass defense and pass efficiency defense.


mThe Crimson Tide put
together its second
straight 500-yard game with 523 yards
in this past Saturday's 53-7 victory over
North Texas. The last time that Alabama
collected 500 or more yards of total
offense in back-to-back games came
during the 2001 season against South
Carolina and Texas El-Paso.
Quarterback Ryan
SMallett broke the
school's single-game record for passing
yards by completing 21-of-39 passes for
408 yards in this past Saturday's 52-41
loss to visiting Georgia. The former
school record of 387 yards was. set by
Clint Stoerner in a 31-21 loss to LSU on
Nov. 28, 1997.
trim Craig Stevens' 16-yard
interception return for a
touchdown this past Saturday night
sealed a 41-30 victory over West Virginia
at Jordan-Hare Stadium. The win was
the Tigers' 52nd consecutive when
scoring 30 or more points,dating back to
the 1996 season.
"iDm Senior quarterback Tim
Tebow tied former LSU
standout Kevin Faulk for second on the
conference's all-time rushing touchdown
list with his 46th in the second quarter
of Saturday's 23-13 win over visiting
Tennessee. However, Tebow failed to
throw a touchdown pass and saw the
nation's longest active streak of games
with a scoring pass snapped at 30.
Senior quarterback Joe
Cox tied a school record by
throwing five touchdown passes in the
Bulldogs' 11-point win over Arkansas.
The school record of five scoring passes
in a game was set by David Greene
nearly five years ago and was tied by
D.J. Shockley and Matthew Stafford in
2005 and 2008, respectively.
Randall Cobb's 12-yard
p I Kr touchdown pass from
Mike Hartline with 4:28 remaining in
this past Saturday gave Kentucky its
third straight win in the Governor's Cup
series, a 31-27 victory over state-rival
Louisville. Of the Wildcats' last 22 wins,
10 have come via a fourth-quarter
comeback.
The Tigers continued their
l" domination of the Sun Belt
conference with this past Saturday's
* 31-3 victory over visiting Louisiana-
Lafayette. With the win, LSU improved
to 33-0 all-time against Sun Belt teams
and 22-0 against the Ragin' Cajuns,
who have been outscored by the Tigers
988-25 in those 22 contests.
suigSipps i This past Saturday's
52-6 victory over
visiting, Southeastern Louisiana marked
a school-record fourth straight time
that the Rebels have scored at least 45
points. Mississippi has averaged 46.5
points per game and held its opponents
to 11.2 points per game over the last six
contests.
P f IS eSTATE Holding Vanderbilt to
P just one first down in
the first half, the Bulldogs snapped a
six-game conference road losing streak
with this past Saturday's 15-3 victory.
The one first down was the lowest
number given up by Mississippi State's
defense over the first 30 minutes since
Auburn failedto garner'one first-half
first down nine years ago.
0l Freshman Jarvin Giles
ROIUII rushed for 113 yards
and classmate Tori Gurley collected
100 receiving yards in this past
'Saturday's 38-16 victory over visiting
Florida Atlantic. The last time that the
Gamecocks had a 100-yard rusher and
a 100-yard receiver in the same game
came nearly two years ago against
Tennessee.
B f K Junior defensive back
Eric Berry, who jump-
started his career by intercepting a
Tim Tebow pass in 2007, pulled off
the trick again this past Saturday in
the second quarter. It was Berry's 13th
career interception, which ties him
for first among all active Football Bowl
Subdivision players.
K RI T Senior punter Brett
Upson uncorked punts
of 65 and 61 yards against Mississippi
State. Those were the second and third
'longest punts for Upson, who averaged
43.0 yards on his career-high 11 punt
attempts. Upson set his career best as a
freshman with a 69-yarder.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2009 U SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK PAGE 3C


Dear Classified Guys,
I'm 16 years old and my parents say
it's time for me to get a job if I want a
driver's license, and who doesn't?
I've looked a few places for a job, but
once they find out I've never worked
before, they tell me that they aren't
interested in hiring me. I can under-
stand their response, but how do you
get any experience if you can't get a
job? I feel like I'm going in circles
and my parents aren't much help.
They think I can walk into the corner
store and get hired. Apparently they
haven't been there lately because
everyone working there is college
age. I thought this would be
easier since I keep good
grades. Please help me,
otherwise I'm going to have
to give up on getting my license
and continue taking the bus!
Cash: The good part about taking
the bus is you don't have to pay for gas.
However, getting your driver's license
can be good motivation to finding
employment.
Carry: Applying for jobs of any type
can be a daunting task and even more
so when you've never been employed.
Cash: Before you even venture out
for a job, first consider your outlook

about getting one. For instance, if
you're asking about employment and
thinking, "my parents want me to do
this," then it's likely the person inter-
viewing you will see that as well.
Carry: However, if you walk in con-
fident and ready for the job, then that's
what will come across to others. Since
you may lack experience, your attitude
is more important than ever.
Cash: Assuming you're ready to
work, a little additional prep work can
help. Try creating a brief resume list-
ing your skills, clubs .ou belong to at
school or achievements you've accom-
plished. You can even list babysitting
your siblings if that applies.


Carry: Creating a resume, however
brief, will help show employers that
you're willing to put in a good effort.
And if you're asked to interview on the
spot, you'll have some topics ready to
discuss with them.
Cash: The resume should also
include a good set of references such as
teachers, coaches or professional
adults. But remember, avoid listing
mom and dad!
Carry: A little extra effort ahead of
time will make finding a job much easi-
er. And remember to stay positive and
keep trying. While some places may say
"no", it only takes one "yes" to start on
the path to getting your driver's license!


Summer Break Time
Whether it's shopping or working,
most teenagers love the mall.
According to the Bureau ofLabor and
Statistics, the retail trade ranked as the
second most popular place that 16 to 19
year olds work over their summer
break. Other popular jobs include the
arts & entertainment trade (i.e. movie
theatres), construction and administra-
tive positions. However, the top ranked
industry still remains to be the hotel,
restaurant and fast food business.
Punching the Clock
Since the time clock's invention in
the late 1800's, companies have been
relying on these timekeepers to track
employee hours. Willard Bundy, a
jeweler in New York first invented the
punch clock in 1888. One year later his
brother started Bundy Manufacturing
Company and began mass-producing
the timekeepers for companies. While
the punch card is still used in many
facilities today, technology has offered
significant changes to time clocks
including the use of swipe cards and
biometrics such as fingerprinting and
voice or face recognition.

us your opinion? We want to hear all about itl

Good Recommendation
I'm amazed at how early my chil-
dren are learning things in school.
My 11-year-old son came home with
a project to write his resume.
Despite not having a job on the hori-
zon, he spent two hours listing his
skills and experience with chores
around the house.
'He was so proud of his work that
he brought it to my husband and me
to look over. As we read though his
resume, we started to smile. My hus-
band then turned to my son and said
that it looked great, but he may need
to work on the personal references
section.
"Why is that?" my son questioned.
"Well," he explained, "Under refer-
ences you only listed 'dictionary."'

PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT
TO ISSUE AIR PERMIT

Florida Department of Environmental
Protection Division of Air Resource
Management, Bureau of Air
Regulation Draft Air Construction
Permit Project No. 1210465-017-AC
Suwannee American Cement, LLC,
Branford Cement Plant Suwannee
County, Florida

Applicant' The applicant for this project
is Suwannee American Cement, LLC.
The applicant's authorized representative
and mailing address are: Mr. Tom
Messer, Plant Manager, Suwannee
American Cement,' LLC, Branford
Cement Plant; 5117 U.S. Highway 27,
and Branford, Florida 32008. ...

Facility Location: Suwannee American
Cement, LLC operates an existing
Portland cement plant, which is located
in Suwannee County at 5117 US
Highway 27 in Branford, Florida.


Project: The applicant requests
authorization to conduct a temporary
short-term trial to co-fire up to 1200 tons
of 'auto fluff" in the existing Kiln 1 system
over approximately a 20-day trial period.
Auto fluff is a byproduct of the metal
recycling process consisting of a
shredded mixture of non-ferrous
materials including plastics, foam, rubber
and glass that comes from scrap
automobiles. The mixture of materials
contains a significant heating value that
can be used to displace the firing of
some coal in the cement kiln. The
purpose of the project is to determine
whether this material is feasible and
practical for further consideration as an
alternative fuel for the cement kiln. Auto
fluff may contain mercury if the mercury-
containing switches are not removed
from the automobile before shredding.

As a worst-case scenario, the project will
potentially emit an additional 2.4 pounds
mercury and 3.7 pounds lead based on:
the maximum expected metal
concentrations of auto fluff; 1200 tons of
auto fluff; the assumption that all of the
volatile mercury is emitted; and the
assumption that more than 99.99% of the
low-volatile lead is bound to the cement
clinker produced by the kiln. The project
must continue to comply with all current
emissions standards including mercury.
Emissions increases of other pollutants
are expected to be negligible. The
existing kiln has high operating
temperatures with a long residence time
and is designed to fire a variety of
alternative fuels while minimizing
emissions of carbon monoxide and
volatile organic compounds. Acid gases
will be naturally scrubbed by lime in the
cement kiln. Non-volatile metals will be
bound to the cement clinker produced by
the kiln. A selective non-catalytic
reduction system is used to control
emissions of nitrogen oxides. A fabric
filter system is used to control emissions
Sof particulate matter.

This project is subject to the general
preconstrucGion review requirements in
Rule 62-212.300, Florida Administrative
Code (FA.C.) and is not subject to the
preconstruction review requirements for
major stationary sources in Rule 62-
212.400, F.A.C. for the Prevention of
Significant Deterioration (PSD) of Air
Quality.

Permitting Authority: Applications for
air construction permits are subject to
review in accordance with the provisions
of Chapter 403, Florida Statutes (FS.)
and Chapters 62-4, 62-210 and'62-212
of the Florida Administrative Code
(F.A.C.). The proposed project is not
exempt from air permitting requirements
and an air permit is required to perform
the proposed work. The Permitting
Authority responsible for making a perrpit
determination for' this project is the

Department of Environmental
Protection's Division of Air Resource
Management. The Permitting Authority's

file a petition within 14 days of receipt of
that notice, regardless of the date of
publication. A.petitioner shall mail a copy
of the petition to the applicant at the
address indicated above, at the time of
filing. The failure of any person to file a
petition within the appropriate time period
shall constitute a waiver of that person's
right to request an administrative
determination (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene
in this proceeding and participate as a
party to it. Any subsequent intervention
(in a proceeding initiated by another
party) will be only at the approval of the
presiding officer upon the filing of a
motion. in compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, F.A.C.

A petition that disputes the material facts
on which the Permitting Authority's action
is based must contain the .following
information: (a) The name and address of
each agency affected and each agency's
file or identification number, if known; (b)
The name, address and telephone
number of the petitioner; the name
address and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if any, which
shall be the address for service purposes
during the course of the proceeding; and
an explanation of how the petitioner's
substantial rights will be affected by the
agency determination; (c) A statement of
when and how the petitioner received
notice of the agency action or proposed
decision; (d) A statement of all disputed
issues of material fact. If there are none,
the petition must so state; (e) A concise
statement of the ultimate facts alleged,
including the specific facts the petitioner

which the Permitting Authority's action is
based shall state that no such facts are
in dispute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above, as
required by Rule 28-106.301, FA.C.

Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Permitting Authority's
final action may be different from the
position taken by it in this Public Notice
of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons
whose substantial interests will be
affected by any such final decision of the
Permitting Authority on the application
have the right to petition to become a
party to the proceeding, in accordance

through while enjoying
the cool autumn air.

Phobia promises to be
more haunting than ever!
For eight nights in
October, Phobia scares
and startles guests with
special effects, live
characters, sounds, and all
new haunted houses and
scare zones. Never-
ending nightmares await
as guests wander from
one terror to another,
weaving in and out of
haunted houses.
Whether it is clowns,
hospitals, tight spaces, or
the dark, guests must face
their fears at Phobia.
Canterbury's Crazed
Clown Circus draws
guests in with sinister
laughs and mischief. The
Lakeside Phobatorium
takes a trip to the doctor's
office to a new and
petrifying level. Guests
are cautioned not to travel
very far into the swampy
PsychoPath, where
visitors never leave.
