The view outside the Suwannee County

looked like an entrance to a carnival ride for
folks hoping to renew their tags, titles and
registration before higher prices kicked in

"They were all up and down the sidewalk,"

called.
. "We served approximately 1,400 customers
yesterday," Jordan said Tuesday.
A normal day brings in about 100 cus-
tomers, she said. In addition, the office took
in more than $5,000 in phone renewals.
The day didn't go off without a hitch, how-
ever.

By year's end, local chicken

Pilgrim's Pride plans to
reemerge from bankruptcy as
a stronger and more financial-

"Within the next several
weeks, we expect to file our

U.S. Bankruptcy Court," said
Ray Atkinson, Director of
Corporate Communications.
Currently the Texas-based
corporation, which owns a
chicken processing plant and a
feed mill in Suwannee Coun-

tion under Chapter 11 bank-
ruptcy since December. Sub-

Jack

and


Cathy




Allred

Always ready for an adventure

By Jinny Wilson "
My guesstimate is that more
than 300 Wellborn students and
their families accomplished
going "Back to School" last ..
month. The ripples spread .
across all 1,200 families in my
hometown. I still lovenew
starts and am very grateful for
teachers and the public school
system personnel who share
responsibility for the children
with their parents, neighbors and
all us hometown folks. It is easy
to appreciate God's gift of children no matter what chapter
of life we are experiencing. Kids are fun and we all were.
kids once upon a time. Life is a great ride. Lots of thrills
and chills and some spills, but it is a grand adventure.
Jack Allred is my choice for the "Who Is Whom in
Wellborn" series currently running in the Suwannee
Democrat. Jack agrees with me'that life IS a grand
adventure. He drew me a picture of a 44-foot sailboat he
owned and loved. He and Cathy and four kids lived
aboard, once upon a time. It was when they combined
families in 1977. Together they have five children, but the
oldest was already launched. The foremast of the sailboat
is taller than the mizzen, making it a ketch. She could fly
four sails. They named her "Freeflight."
Jack had grown up in Woodland Park in the Rockies of
Colorado. Cathy is a Floridian, born in High Springs and
raised in Columbia County. Jack had joined the Navy in
1960. Cathy and Jack shared a dream: to sail off into the
sunset once their children were all launched into life's
adventure#of their owni choosing. Instead, shortli after


Cathy and Jack
shared a dream: to
sail off into the
sunset once their
children were all
launched into life's
adventures of their. -,
own choosing.
Instead, shortly after
acquiring ': rL;
"Freeflight," Jack .- .
received a Navy -
commission and
orders. They sailed
Freeflight to Norfolk,
Virginia! Jack's ..
retirement did conie,
though, and with the
lucky last two
children able to go
along, a family of
four sailed on
Freeflight from
Norfolk to Maine.

acquiring "Freeflight," Jack received a Navy commission
and orders. They sailed Freeflight to Norfolk, Virginia!
Jack's retirement did come though, and with the lucky last
two children able to go along,.a family of four sailed on
Freeflight from Norfolk to Maine.
In the fall they sailed South again to Jacksonville. But
then the dream faded. They were needed to ease Jack's
mother through a time of failing strengths. "Freeflight"
was sold. The children were almost all on their own now
and Jack and Cathy went to Colorado for Mom's sake.
Once Mom was settled they came back to Florida. Jack
got a captain's license and worked a friend's dinner boat,
with Cathy hostessing aboard it. That watery adventure
was in.the mountains of Virginia. At the end of the
season they returned to Colorado..In 1998 Colorado's
horrendous winter inspired Jack and Cathy to leave 9,200
feet of elevation and their rustic lifestyle there to' search
out and secure jobs aboard a 100-foot dinner-cruise boat
'on Lake Powell, Utah, near the Arizona border. Jack
says, "We stayed at the lake jix years and loved'every

minute of it."
When he \ as a captain
qn a smaller tour boat
operating out of Bullfrog,
Utah, Jack gave a


serendipitous treat to the elderhostelers and other tourists.
Two Wilsons were there. Captain Jack Allred play-acted
the part of a river personality, Charles Hall, who was a
Mormon gentleman. Captain Jack, as Charles Hall, stood
on the very spot on the'Colorado River bank and told of
God's leading him to build a river crossing ferry at the
only place where river crossing was relatively safe within
100 miles. Little did we dream that God's tapestry would
weave the Wilson thread alongside the Allred thread
again, years later, and this time we know each other's'
names, and we are now experiencing a growing depth of
friendship.
. After Jack's mom's death, in 2004, they sold their
Colorado property, brought an assortment of boats with
them, and relocated to be near Cathy's family. They
chose Wellborn for their hometown. We now meet
together with others every Sunday and Wednesday at the
Wellborn Methodist Church.

Christmas


catalogs
By Jim Holmes
While Christmas is still the better part of four
months off, you wouldn't know it if you took a
gander in my mailbox.
It's already being crammed daily with holiday
catalogs as America's retailers launch their early
salvos in what will be another all-out campaign
to separate us from as much of our money as
possible prior to December 25.
I have to admit it, I feel somewhat conflicted
about this time of year.
One part of me hates how commercial Christ-
mas has become and how early the season be-
gins. After all, this holiday is about the birth of a
Jewish carpenter, whose life and death changed
how many of us view our very existence.
On the other hand, I love holiday catalogs. I
wouldn't be surprised if the mailman ends up de-
livering a hundred of these little magazines be-
fore the season ends. And I can almost guarantee
you each page of every publication will get a
careful perusal by both my wife and me.
After all, catalogs afford us something that In-
ternet Web pages simply don't do. When you
visit a retail Web page, you want to have some
idea what you are looking for: tools, dresses,
TVs, etc. But with catalogs, you can spend hours
and hours just browsing. It's the cheapest part of
the holiday season and in some ways the most re-
warding.
I lust over some of the offerings. Others be-
muse me. I don't think there has ever been a
Swiss-Army knife, electric weather station or
portable radio I didn't want. And I've been known
to start breathing heavily when I see the latest
tool offerings from Craftsman or Black & Deck-
er.
My wife is an absolute sucker for almost any
type of clothing made for little dogs. When I hear
her say, "Ahh, wouldn't Scooter look darling in
this?" I know its going to cost me! As for our lit-
tle Yorkie, he runs-and hides.
Then there are the new humorous gifts that
make their debut this time of year. My favorite so
far -- but remember, the season is young -- is a T-
shirt that reads, "My Indian Name is Yes Dear!"
My least favorite is another shirt that reads, "I
Live at the Corer of Kiss My A** Avenue & No
Freaking Way!" Now who in the world gives a
gift like that at Christmas!
My love of holiday catalogs is nothing new.
I've always been enamored with them. When I
was a kid, the mailman's delivery of the Fall-
Winter Sears & Roebuck Catalog -- all 1,000
pages of it -- was anticipated almost as much as
the arrival of Saint Nick himself.
For countless hours, you would find me on the
front room floor sprawled on my stomach -- the
catalog opened before me, my dog Jezebel nestled
at my side --dreaming about the fun I'd have, if
Santa would just bring me that one toy. Oh, and
that one! And that one as well! You get the idea.
I do much the same today with Scooter next to
me and without the floor-sprawling part. After
all, needing to call 9-1-1 to dispatch someone to
help me get up off the rug would be embarrass-
ing.

OPINION


Washington'


President Obama and congres-
sional supporters estimate that
his health care plan will cost be-
tween $50 and $65 billion a year.
Such cost estimates are lies
whether they come from a De-
mocratic president and Congress,
or a Republican president and
Congress. You say, "Williams,
you don't show much trust in the
White House and Congress."
Let's check out their past dishon-
esty.


BY WALT]


At its start, in 1966, Medicare cost $3 billion. The
House Ways and Means Committee, along with President
Johnson, estimated that Medicare would cost an inflation-
adjusted $12' billion by 1990. In 1990, Medicare topped
$107 billion. That's nine times Congress' prediction. To-
day's Medicare tab comes to $420 billion with no signs of
leveling off. How much confidence can we have in any
cost estimates by the White House or Congress?
Another part of the Medicare lie'is found in Section
1801 of the 1965 Medicare Act that reads: "Nothing in this
title shall be construed to authorize any federal officer or
employee to exercise any supervision or control over the
practice of medicine, or the manner in which medical ser-
vices are provided, or over the selection, tenure, or com-
pensation of any officer, or employee, or any institution,
agency or person providing health care services." Ask
your doctor or hospital whether this is true.
Lies and deception are by no means restricted to mod-
em times. During the legislative debate prior to ratifica-
tion of the 16th Amendment, President Howard Taft and
congressional supporters said that only the rich would
ever pay federal income taxes. In 1916, only one-half of 1
percent of income earners paid income taxes. Those earn-
ing $250,000 a year in today's dollars paid 1 percent, and
those earning $6 million in today's dollars paid 7 percent..
The lie that only the rich would ever pay income taxes was
simply a lie to exploit the politics of envy and dupe Amer-
icans into ratifying the 16th Amendment.
The proposed tax increases that the White House and
Congress are proposing will probably pass. According to
the Washington, D.C.-based Tax Foundation, during 2006,


By Dan Danner
As Labor Day approaches,
marking the unofficial end of
summer, many Americans are
grabbing their last chances at a
variety of activities: neighbor-
hood cookouts, family outings, lounging by a pool or
taking a last few days of vacation.
There's one other thing that all Americans, especially
small business owners, should grab a last chance to do.
They should contact their lawmakers in person before
they go back to Washington after the holiday.
Special-interest groups have grabbed many headlines
by spending huge sums of money on ads aimed at influ-
encing legislators. But that's no substitute for hearing di-
rectly from voters. For lawmakers, talking to real people
about their everyday concerns is a much more effective
way to gauge what's on their constituents' minds than
any slickly produced ad campaign.
For the next few days, representatives and senators
will be out and about in cities and towns around the
country. They'll be shaking hands, visiting coffee shops
and community centers. You'll see them marching in La-
bor Day weekend parades, waving and carrying flags,
all to tell you how much they care about you, your com-
munity and our country.
So take advantage of the opportunity to tell them ex-
actly what's on your mind and what's important to you
and your business. Let them know what you expect of
them when they go back to the Capitol.
A funny thing sometimes happens to our representa-
tives when they get inside the Washington Beltway bub-


IF


ble. They can too easily get
caught up a petty politics, in-
sider bickering and frantic
races to one fundraiser after an-
other as they.think about their
next campaign. The kindly,
community-oriented Dr. Jekyll can become a self-cen-
tered Mr. Hyde, forgetting who he is, who he represents,
and who, in the end, he works for-you.
They need to be reminded of that fact whenever possi-
ble, with the strongest possible messages. As a small
business owner, you have a particularly powerful mes-
sage to deliver. You're a leader in your community. You
create jobs, pay wages and taxes to all levels of govern-
ment. You are the largest single sector of our economy,
both local and national
And right now, many small business owners are strug-
gling. If you're one of them, let your legislator know. Be
sure they hear that you can't afford to be hit with an ex-
pensive new mandate to provide health insurance. Help
them to understand that the proposed'energy bill, with
its risky new cap-and-trade program, will mean much
higher costs for your business, stifling growth and in-
vestment. Let them know that your taxes need to be kept
low so that you can grow your business. Talk to them
about whatever is threatening the well-being of your
business.
Now is your chance to speak up. Don't let it pass you
by. Otherwise, they're liable to forget that you're the
boss.
Dan Danner is president and CEO of the National
Federation of Independent Business in Washington, D.C.


lies


A .roughly 43.4 million tax returns,
representing 91 million individu-
IUN~MOR11r als, had no federal tax liability.
That's out of a total of 136 mil-
VIEW lion federal tax returns. Adding
to this figure are 15 million
Households and individuals who
Sfile no tax return at all. Roughly
121. million Americans -- or 41
2009 Creators Syndicate
percent of the U.S. population --
ER WILLIAMS are completely outside the feder-
al income tax system. These peo-
ple represent a natural constituency for big-spending
politicians. Since they have no federal income tax obliga-
tion, what do they care about higher taxes or tax cuts?
Another big congressional lie is Social Security. Here's
what a 1936 government pamphlet on Social Security
said: "After the first 3 years -- that is to say, beginning in
1940 -- you will pay, and your employer will pay, 1.5
cents for each dollar you earn, up to $3,000 a year ... be-
ginning in 1943, you will pay 2 cents, and so will your
employer, for every dollar you earn for the next 3 years. ...
And finally, beginning in 1949, twelve years from now,
you and your employer will each pay 3 cents on each dol-
lar you earn, up to $3,000 a year." Here's Congress's lying
promise: "That is the most you will ever pay." Let's repeat
that last sentence: "That is the most you will ever pay."
Compare that to today's reality, including Medicare, which
is 7.65 cents on each dollar that you earn up to nearly
$107,000, which comes to $8,185.
The Social Security pamphlet closes with another lie:
"Beginning November 24, 1936, the United States gov-
ernment will set up a, Social Security account for you ...
The checks will come to you as a right." First, there's no
Social Security account containing your money, but more
importantly, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled on two oc-
casioi~s that Americans have no legal right to Social Secu-
rity payments.
We can thank public education for American gullibility.

Branford cartoonist Travis
Ford draws from his daily
struggle with autism

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston @ gaflnews.com

Travis Ford's emotions, happiness and sadness and all
that fall between, are as unknown to most of the outside
world as the inspiration behind the whimsical characters
he creates during afternoons in Mrs. Fiyer's art class.
Autistic, but prodigiously artistic, he has managed to es-
cape autism's isolating restraints with the help of a, mot- ":
ley crew of simply drawn, but inspired cartoons.
What the 16-year-old cannot express verbally or in so-
cial situations he can show through the carefully drawn
characters he calls "Simply Amazing Cartoons." Drawn
with vibrant colors, or deep charcoal tone and true-to-life
expressions, Travis' characters, and the story line he has
created, stand as an allegory for the troubles he has faced
growing up with autism. For Travis, creating cartoons is
simply his expression of self.
Travis' art is highly symbolic and most of his cartoons
center around a common theme, bullies. Travis says he
got along with students and did fine in school until
around third grade when he first encountered bullying ,
and name-calling. "They thought I was kind of 'special',"
said Travis, whose favorite song'is Michael Jackson's
"Thriller" and enjoys watching westerns like "The Good,
the Bad, and the Ugly". "Some kids kind of think of me
as stupid. They would call me stupid and say hard
words."
"It kind of hurt me a little," said Travis.
Out of that pain, was born "Teek." "Teek is like my al-
ter-ago," said Travis of his cartoon protagonist. "He likes
the same foods I do. Teek likes ice cream, I like ice
cream. He likes to be nice and help kids, I like to be nice
and help kids." In the cartoon, Teek is a superhero with
special powers who saves school kids from bullies. He
can transform objects into swords and change suddenly:
into a magician or sailor. Teek, whose hair grows with
his imagination, can also turn shadows into people "like
magical shadow puppets," according to Travis. "If a stu-
dent is being bullied, Teek can turn a shadow into a
teacher.to save him."
Travis is an old soul. Sitting on a couch, chatting with .
the well-mannered youth, it is easy to tell that as the
youngest child and one with special needs, he has been
his parents' companion. With the rain falling outside,
Travis flips through "The Adventures of Teek" pointing.
out some of his favorite characters and telling some of
the stories, character voices included. As we sit and talk,
Travis often becomes distracted by a sudden change of
expression or hand motion and pauses mid-sentence.
However, if one tries to help him finish a sentence or
anything of the like, he cracks a small smile, seeming
slightly amused at such inpatients.
Travis says he invented Teek and the other characters
not only as a way to express himself, but also as a way
to help those with special needs.
"I came up with Teek just to help kids with, special
needs. Really just to make them cheer up over anything,"
said Travis. "I also do it for myself because I love to
draw and I also love to paint. It's also a way for me to
express myself. But really, I just kind of made mc car-
toon characters to encourage everyone to believe in N our
own abilities. That everybody, no matter who the) are,
they can believe in themselves."
People like Travis, with severe mental deficits v ho
possess such unexpected gifts are called savants, from .
the French verb savoir, to know. Examples of savant.ir
clude the extraordinary talent of Steven Wiltshiie He
can draw an accurate and detailed landscape of a cir' af-
ter seeing it just once. He drew a 33-foot long panorama
of Tokyo following a short helicopter ride. Ellen
Boudreaux is a blind autistic savant with exceptional,
strumental skill. She can play a piece of music perTec.'r


after hearing it only once, and has such a large repertoire
of songs memorized that a newspaper reporter once tried
to "stump Ellen" by requesting that she play some ob-
scure songs. The reporter failed miserably.
Travis, born in Largo, seemed just like his older sisters
at first, said his mother, Carla. It was not until Travis
was around three years old that she noticed he was niot
learning to speak at the rate her older children had. She
became worried. For years doctors, psychologists, spe-
cialists, all diagnosed Travis with everything from As-
perger's Syndrome to simply a speech/language disorder.
"They never gave us clear answers," said Carla. When.
the Fords moved to Branford from Mississippi seeking a
quieter atmosphere, Travis took part in a special study at
the University of Florida and was finallydiagnosed with
autism at age 14.
"It was heartbreaking," Carla said of watching Travis
struggle growing up. Travis would get angry over little
thigs and talk about bullying incidents that happened
over a year ago, as if it happened yesterday with great
detail. But what worried Carla most was the difficulty he
had expressing his emotions and making friends. "With
autism it is hard for them to know when kids are leading
the on just to pick on them or being sincere," sad Carla.
"He has such a big heart and he wanted friends so bad-
ly."
"We tried to make sure he was as normal as possible,"
said Carla who along with her husband Kelvin made sure
Travis participated in everything from FFA to Boy
Scouts, to swimming with dolphins on a family vacation.
"From the time he was a very young child we tried to fit
him in."
SHowever, Travis recently proved he was born to stand
out.
In Mrs. Vaster Fryer's art class this past summer,
"'Teek" was not the only one who bloomed. "I couldn't
believe the characters and stories he came up with," said
Fryer. "Through this cartoon character, he has not only
inspired other students, but found acceptance. He has
blossomed."
Through a superhero whose special powers, shadow
puppets and disappearing swords (i.e. kindness and re-
spect), help him protect kids from bullies, Travis has
managed not only to find a place among his peers, but
has also encouraged and inspired them. When asked why
he feels some find it funny to say negative thing to peo-
ple with special needs he said, "I really think people act
that way because maybe they have had hard times with
their family," said Travis. He says it is for those who
picked and called him names that he created Teek. "This
is really why I made Teek. No matter if maybe you're
having a hard time, always try to keep moving forward."
Travis, who once learned sign language so he could


SFrom "The Adventures
of Teek":
"Teek is a loving and
caring person. He is
also friendly to kids
and adults. He is
loved and he will
never think that any
one will hurt him. If

hurt or killed he

better communicate \\ ith a deaf friend, does not want
fame or fortune. He simply wants to help encourage kids
and be lkno0 o as an intelligent, good person, and not just
for ha% ing autism. "I just want people to know I'm a nice
person. That I'm a good person who can learn things."
Meanwhile, Travis is in school and only taking one
speech class per week this year. He hangs out and plays
video games with friends, such as his best friend Eric
and he has a few crushes. "Eric comes over and we play
video gamesand talk. And yeah, we talk about girls,"
Travis admits. Recently, he has begun using computer
programs to create motion cartoons. Travis even records
Teek defeating 5 et another bully, or simply performing
magic mcks for kids and sends them to friends using a
cell phone. Tra\ i, of course, does all the voices. eI,,
taught himself to use the programs and often picks up
skills naturally and with little, if any instruction, said
Carla. Although Travis currently has no set plan for what
he'll do after high
school, he says
art school is a
definite possibili-
ty.
"I wouldn't
want another
son," said Carla.
"He has the best
qualities because,
he has such a big
heart. He looks at
the world differ-
ent and he makes
it make sense."

ican Gothic" lie on Travis' bed.

BITS



PIECEt


This past week I had to
do a little "calendaring"
and put some things on a
couple of lists. One bit of
scheduling was writing in
dates of upcoming events
to benefit our animal shel-
ter, beginning with setting
up space at the Lake City
Mall on Saturday, Septem-
ber 12th, and Sunday, Sep-
tember 13th, to showcase
some of the animals we'll
have ready for adoption by
then. If you are in Lake
City, come by and say hel-
lo and check out our furry
residents. You might find
just the one pet that is
meant for you. And please
say hello to the volunteers
at the Suwannee County
Animal Shelter who will
be there caring for these
sweet animals looking for
loving, "forever" homes.
In the course of empty-
ing drawers, cleaning out
closets, and moving furni-
ture around, it's amazing
what things you find, isn't
it? I thought I had purged
my closets long, long ago,
but found a small box
tucked way back in a small
closet that contained one-
of Harold's favorite jack-
ets, his favorite white shirt
with navy stripes that he
often wore to church, and a
briefcase in which he'kept
his latest Sunday School
class lesson and his hand-


written agenda for the next
Brotherhood breakfast. So
I guess I'll keep them, in
my closet now..........just
because!! The shirt is a lit-
tle loose, but I think it will
look pretty nice on me
with my navy slacks. As
for the jacket, it still has
that faint scent of his fa-
vorite cologne.
And as I sorted through
books that had been on the
small bookcase, something
compelled me to take one
that had been given to
Harold and put it beside
my 'chair to read later. It
was a book that was an in-
spirational study journal
with short stories of inspi-
ration and plenty of space
after each one in which to
write your thoughts and re-
sponses. The book is "In
His Hand" written by Patti
Becklund. One story had a
bookmark in its fold,
which had to have been
put there by Harold. It's a
story of one couple's
"blessing box", a Kleenex
box in which, for many
months at the end of every
day, they wrote down a
blessing they had received
that day or something spe-
cial that had happened,
then placed the piece of'
paper in the box. When a
stressful or unhappy day
came up, they would sit
down and pull out the


pieces of paper, and be re-
minded of their many
blessings. Isn't that a won-
derful idea? And a bless-
ing could be something as
simple and peaceful^ as
watching a red bird sitting
on the edge of the birdbath
for several minutes, or cel-
ebrating a special occa-
sion, or the visit of a child
or grandchild, or appreci-
ating a friend or neighbor
stopping by just to see
how you are doing. I've
already started mine!
I also found one of my
many pens that keep dis-
appearing, a small spoon
that doesn't belong to any
tableware I own but that
was used specifically to
take liquid medicines, and
a pretty Christmas broach
that has been missing for
two years, all most likely
thanks to one of my cats
playing with it until it
rolled under the dresser,
never to be found until
now. (The dresser is very
heavy and hasn't been
moved in years, just so
you know it's not a house-
keeping problem). Printed
words that come with my
music tapes and a couple
of audio tapes somehow
found their way into one
of the drawers under sel-
dom worn socks ... no idea
how or why they were put
there. And a small stack of
greeting cards had fallen
behind a low bookshelf,
reviving my desire to get
back to mailing out greet-
ings for every occasion as
well as pretty cards with
no printed message in
which to send notes just to
say hello.
This week I don't have
local news for this col-
umn, but I ask that you
please include in your


prayers Becky Fletcher
and Sherlynn Cranmer
who have medical issues.
.My personal sympathy to
Harold Dean in the pass-
,ing of his father, Cleo Tru-
luck, on August 26.
I am finally getting the
batteries in my wheelchair
which is getting a very
thorough cleaning, so I'll
once again be able to get
out whenever I want and
go wherever I want on
my own. God bless all
those who have helped me
with my problem chair
over the last bunch of
months and to those who
have taken me places and
brought store-owned
wheelchairs out to the ve-
hicle when it was impossi-
ble to get my own chair
loaded. You know who
you are, and I love and ap-
preciate each one of you!
From "Humorous Quo-
tations" by Bob Phillips:
"An abnormal person is
anyone who behaves dif-
ferently from you."
"No man knows what
absentmindedness really is
until he finds himself dial-
ing his own telephone
number."
"You never know how
absurd your own opinion
is until you hear somebody
else quoting it."
"If most accidents hap-
pen within five miles of
home, why don't we move
ten miles away?"
"Old accountants never
die; they just lose their
balance."
"The most important
thing in acting is honesty.
If you can fake that,
you've got it made!"
Have a wonderful week!
And don't forget to start
your "blessing box"! God
bless!!

Looking out for older adults


By Paul M. Haas
County Fire Marshal
Knowing what to do in
the event of a- fire is par-
ticularly important for
older adults. At age 65,
people are twice as likely
to be killed or injured by
fires compared to the pop-
ulation at large. And with


our numbers growing
every year in the Unfited
'States and Canada, adults
age 65 and older make up
about 12 percent pf the
population it's essential
to take the necessary steps
to stay safe.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: Is it true I should take dentures out
only to clean them?
A: It once was accepted wisdom that
dentures should be out of the mouth only
for cleaning. It's now advisable that
dentures be out of the mouth for about 8
hours during a 24-hour period. The gum
tissue under the denture needs oxygen for
revitalization. The moist gum area under
the dentures is an ideal breeding ground
for yeast or fungal infections and general
bacterial overgrowth. This can lead to
inflammation and degradation of the
tissue, which in turn can contribute to
sinus or respiratory illnesses.
Remember, however, that dentures are
constructed for existence in a wet
environment. So when they are notfin your
mouth, you should store them a closed
container with water, mouthwash or other
non-sugary liquid to keep them moist. A
toothbrush and regular toothpaste are
effective tools for cleaning your dentures.
Though denturesare designed to last a
long time, changes in your mouth may
sometimes necessitate a procedure called
relining. This involves adding material to
the underside of the denture so the fit with
the.gum is snug. Talk with your dentist
about the proper way to wear and care for
your dentures.

that you wake up. If any-
one in your household is
deaf or if your own hear-
ing is diminished, consid-
er installing a smoke
alarm that uses a flashing
light or vibration to alert
you to a fire emergency.
Do the drill
Conduct your own, or
participate in, regular fire
drills to make sure you
know what to do in the
event of a home fire. If
you or someone you live
with cannot escape alone,
designate a member of the
household to assist, and
decide on backups in case
the designee isn't home.
Fire drills are also a good
opportunity to make sure
that everyone is able to
hear and respond to smoke'
alarms.
Open up
Make sure'that you are
able to open all doors and
windows in your home.
Locks and pins should
open easily from inside.
(Some apartment and
high-rise buildings have
windows designed not to
open.) If you have securi-
ty bars on doors or win-
dows, they should have
emergency release de-
vices inside so that they


can be opened easily.
These devices won't com-
promise your safety, but
they will enable you to
open the window from in-
side in the event of a fire.
Check to be sure that
windows haven't been
sealed shut with paint or
nailed shut; if they have,
arrange for someone to
break the seals all around
your home.or remove the
nails.
Stay,connected
Keep a telephone near-
by, along ,with emergency
phone numbers so that
you can communicate
with emergency personnel
if you're trapped in your
room by fire or smoke.
Fact: At age 65, older
adults are twice as likely
to be killed or injured by
fires or fall compared to
the population at large.
Fact: Thirty percent of
people age 65 and older
are involved in falls each
year, the leading cause of
death from unintentional
injury in the home.
Fact: In the U.S. and
Canada, adults age 65 and
older make up about 12
percent of tfie population -
and their numbers are in-
creasing.

Guitar Hero:


Smash Hits
By Cody Webb
Do you remember your favorite
songs from the first few Guitar
Heroes? Do you wish you could play
the more popular songs from each of S --
them, but you own a 360 and don't
feel like digging out your old PS2 ;
guitar controller? Well, you should i .
feel lucky, because that seems to be
the goal of the newest Guitar Hero
game: Smash Hits.
Don't buy Smash Hits if you're looking forward to
playing new songs, you'll be sorely disappointed if you've
played the first few GH games. It's called "Smash Hits" for


a reason: it only consists of the fan favorite songs from
GH's past. Not only does it bring back these fantastic
songs, they've even reworked them so they can be played
on the drums and sung as well.
The gameplay hasn't changed at all, which isn't a bad
thing if you enjoyed World Tour and Metallica. The open-
bass notes, tapping sections and double-kick pedal notes
add more challenge to the tracks. Anyone who played
"Monkey Wrench" from Guitar Hero 2 will find that it is
much more difficult on Smash Hits. This, however, can be
a good or a bad thing depending on the tastes of the player.
The visuals have likewise remained the same, although
that isn't a negative point, either. Personally, I'm not the
biggest fan of Guitar Hero's character models, but that
doesn't mean they're bad. The bottom line is that if you
liked the characters in World Tour and Metallica, you'll
like the ones here.
A good decision on behalf of Neversoft was to dump the
annoying career mode of World Tour for the friendlier style
of Metallica's star-based mode. The character and song
creator remain as well; and aspiring musicians can still
play songs that other players create through GHTunes. One
of the stranger design choices would be the inability to


play the DLC from World Tour, effectively cutting down
on the replayability of Smash Hits.
Ultimately, Smash Hits feels hollow; sure, the songs are
great, but there's really no point to pay full price just to
play them again. Some of the best songs are missing as
well (I'm looking at you "Hangar 18")! The existing tracks
occasionally feel like they're just exercising your fingers
instead of soothing your ears.
Would I recommend buying it, however? That depends,
really. If you've never played the first few GH games, like
if you have a 360 since the first Guitar Hero and Rocks the
80s were PS2-only, or if you really, really love these songs
you could probably justify the sixty dollar price. If you've
played all of the GH games, though, it's not worth the full-
price admission fee.
The ideal way to play Smash Hits would be to bring
three of your bandmates together and rent it. Then you can
settle in for a weekend of rocking nostalgia and fond
memories without putting too much of a dent in your.
wallet. Guitar Hero: Smash Hits gets a C+; and remember
to start saving up for Guitar Hero 5!

No Rest for the Weary
Through a series of misfortunes, a man found himself walking alone in the desert. ..-'
He had painfully noticed the continual wearing out of his shoes. They had worn -
down to the point that he was feeling the burning heat of the desert on his weary
feet.
"Oh, I pray I had a bicycle. If I had a bicycle, I could get out of this cursed desert
and be home a lot faster." As he continued to walk with difficulty, he came across a
bike. H'e looked around and was still quite alone; no one was around. There were not
even footprints. The sand was undisturbed.-The man immediately gave thanks to
God! He got on his new blessing and began to ride through the barren desert with
great joy, smiling as he got closer to home.
After about 10 miles, the blistering sand
took its toll on the bicycle, and the tire
burst open from the unrelenting heat. So,
once again, the man prayed. "Lord, I wish I
had a spare to fix this bike." The frustrated man, with scorched and worn-out feet,
began to push his broken bike along the path of the barren desert wasteland.
After a mile or so, to the man's utter surprise and delight, a spare tire was laying
in the sand along the path. "Thank you, Lord," yelled the man. The man was
overjoyed, quickly changed the tire, and resumed his ride through the sweltering
desert.
After about 10 miles of joy-filled riding, the blistering sand took its toll, once
again, but this time, it was the other tire. The man violently threw the bike down
and shouted up to God. "Why did you give
"f-".I~ __ ""'"'" '"""" ? me this miserable, good-for-nothing bike,
knowing the tires would go flat? You know
I'm hot and thirsty! I'm tired of this desert
and ready to be home quickly!" -.,
However, God was silent, and after a time
of pitiful, bitter tears of frustration and
anger, so was the man. Hie got up and continued his lonely, tiresome journey through
the desert.
The silence went on for another couple of miles until the man saw something in the distance--a car. "Could it be, God,
could it possibly be for me?" the man breathlessly whispered as he ran toward the car. "Wow, a car! Oh, do my eyes
deceive me? A car!'"
The man's eyes did not deceive him; it was a car. He thought to himself, "This is what I need, this is what I needed all
along--a car! He admired the beauty and style of the car as he caressed its smooth lines. He thought of the wonderfully
cold A/C that he knew was in the car, the wonderful car. He reached for the door and opened it. The.unique, new car smell
hit him like a punch. He could hardly contain himself as he sat down behind the wheel and rested. The man
was lost in joy. "This is it! I'll be home by dinner!" Peace and bliss flooded him in waves as he sat behind
the wheel and rested, just.rested.
The time had come. He reached for the ignition, only to find there were no keys! The man's ...
head dropped on the steering wheel. The man cried out to God. "There is no rest for the
weary!"
Finally, God spoke and said, "Now, say you're sorry!"
The moral of the story: problems that seem to be too big for us to handle will always
come into our lives. We can't rely on ourselves, alone, to resolve them, especially when
it comes to our dental health. We let problems and distractions such as fear, time, and
even lackof money prevent us from taking care of our teeth. We want to Help You!

The Bucs fell to the Dixie County Bulldogs 21-16
Friday in a two-quarter preseason contest. "We played
very hard most of the time," said Bucs Coach Bill Wiles.
Branford spotted Dixie two touchdowns in the first
quarter then came on strong, only to come up short. The
Bucs' John Perry scored on a 63-yard run and.
quarterback Kyle Certain hit tight end Mason Tyler with
a 12-yard pass in the second quarter. A Dixie County
kickoff return for a touchdown was the difference.
Branford dominated statistically, with 65 yards
passing and 130 yards rushing, compared to 10 yards

SBy Jeff Waters

.See more photos inside.
S- A good pre-season football game would be one in
which both teams gave it their all to the end, with the
local boys taking the win. That's what happened
S' ..Friday night when the Suwannee Bulldogs defeated the
Indians 31-7 in the Fall Classic in Chiefland.
The Bulldogs played a strong game all night, while
the Indians ran out of steam early on, with a number of
Indians playing on both sides of the ball.
The Bulldogs put 17 points on the scoreboard in the
First half and netted about 200 yards offensively.
4- Freshman varsity quarterback Jimmie Taylor
completed one pass out of two to Andre Zander for 23
;., te yards for a touchdownearly on, with freshman JR Bass
, : enjoying a big firsthalf with 53 rushing yards. The 'X
,. Man' Xavier Perry was back in action with 55 rushing
S*p yards. Alex Robinson raked in 43, while Greg Swinson
had 10.
SDefensively, the 'Dogs had trouble stopping the
Indians in the first half, giving them seven points early

The Suwannee Bulldogs come home with a pre-
season victory and get ready for Hamilton County. It
has been three coaches and about' 13 years ago since
the 'Dogs lost to the Trojans. It was a battle between
two future NFL stars, Andra Davis of the 'Dogs and
Alex Brown of the Trojans. Andra played fullback and
defensive end in those days, he is now an NFL
linebacker in Denver. Alex was a quarterback/wideout,
defensive end. These days he's a defensive lineman for
da Bears.

Suwannee Forestry Center wins National award


A delegation from the Fire
Prevention Committee of the
Suwannee Forestry Center. Florida
Division of Forestry recently travelled
to Tallahassee to receive The 2009
Bronze Smokey award for outstanding
public service in wildfire prevention.
On Aug. 25, Sam LeNeave, center
manager of the Suwannee Forestry
Center, along with Senior Ranger


James Rourks, Rangers Robert Burns
and Brett Fulton, and dispatcher
Karen Truesdale were recognized by
Governor Charlie Crist,
Commissioner of Agriculture and
Consumer Services Charles H.
Bronson and Director of Division of
Forestry James R. Karels.
"Although this award is presented to
the Fire Prevention Committee, I


believe it reflects the dedication and
professionalism of our entire center
team," LeNeave said.
The Bronze Smokey is awarded by
the US Department of Agriculture
Forest Service and The Advertising
Council, Inc. According to LeNeave,
"Only seven Bronze Smokeys were
awarded nation-wide this year and
three came to Florida. I am honored


and pleased for our men and women
to receive the Fire Prevention
Committee award."
The Suwannee Forestry Center,
located in Lake City, is responsible
for fire suppression and landowner
assistance in Baker, Bradford,
Columbia, Hamilton, Suwannee and
Union counties in North Central
Florida.

Statement from DEP Secretary Michael W. Sole regarding EPA

settlement with Earth Justice on Nutrient Criteria Development


"The United States
Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) signed a
settlement agreement
setting a firm schedule to
federally propose and
promulgate numeric
nutrient criteria in the


State of Florida. In light
of that decision to
independently propose
numeric criteria for
Florida's waters, the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) is considering


whether it would be
prudent to continue its
own rulemaking efforts
on the issue.
"Over the last 10 years,
Florida has invested
thousands of staff hours
in development of


numeric nutrient criteria,
and throughout the last
year we have moved
aggressively to analyze
the massive amount of
nutrient and biological
data available for Florida
waters. Alone, Florida


accounts for 30 percent of
the national water quality
dataset far surpassing any
other state in the nation.
SOur efforts have focused
on appropriately
addressing the complexity
of Florida's ecosystems


and coinciding with the
intent, schedule and
guidance provided from
EPA.
"Florida has made a
tremendous investment to
collect and analyze the
data necessary to define
how nutrient enrichment
affects the biological
health of our surface
waters. To ensure that

Last year's game was
rained out and rumors
abound about its not
having been rescheduled.
Suwannee is ready and
Hamilton says the game
will be played even if there
is a monsoon.
This year things will be
different, but how about a
review of last year's
champions. Suwannee will
face Madison, Fort White,
Ribault and Baker County,
all playoff teams last year.

Looking at last year's
championships in the past
20 years North Florida
Christian, Bolles, Godby,
Lincoln and Lakeland have
all been opponents.
Madison advanced to the
state semifinals last year.
This year's redistricting
will change some of the
classifications.
Suwannee, Madison and
Fort White all won their

later on with hard tackles
by 'Dogs such as Alex
Falleck, Josh Martin and
Cody Mobley.
In the third quarter it
was mostly give and take;
but returning quarterback
Jason Bullock saw a little
action with handoffs to
Swinson and Perry for 10
yards, while-Robinson
pulled in six points on a -
Bullock pass.
The 'Dogs brought the
score to 23-7 early on in
the fourth quarter, pretty
much ending the game,
with Taylor seeing his first
pass touchdown to Zander
for 40 yards. The extra
point by "Automatic"
Austin O'Connor made it
24-7. And the play of the
game came when-Bullock
passed to Bass in the last
five minutes of the game
for a 60-yard touchdown.

BY: BRAD WATSO SCOtT


Can you tell me what the
2009 paint color trends are?


A Yes! Green is the trend that soothes
your soul! In 2009/2010. the
consumers are aware of
environmentally friendly products. In the paint
industry, this is true as well. Trendy interior
paint colors are leaning towards colors that
make the homeowner feel happy, relaxed,
soothed and the like. Earth tones are hot this
year. In some areas of the U.S., homeowners
are matching the interior with the exterior of
their homes. Whether it is an interior or exterior
paint color, one thing is certain; it needs to be
"green". Environmentally friendly paint is a
must for 2009; however, it must also come in
soothing, happy and relaxed hues for the
interior and in muted, blended hues for the
exterior.

What to Do About Allergic Conjunctivits
Allergic conjunctivitis is a condition of the eyes caused by an
allergic reaction. Approximately 20% of persons living in the United
States are affected by this condition. The allergic reaction occurs
when the immune system increases levels of the substance igh in
response to contact with an allergen. Signs and symptoms include
itching, tearing, and burning of the eyes. Allergens, such as cat
dander, pollen, and dust, can increase signs and symptoms.
Typically, symptoms resolve within 24 hours after eliminating
exposure to the triggering allergen.
Avoidance of known triggering allergens is recommended.
Artificial tears, such as Moisture Eyes and Murine Tears, may be
applied to the eyes throughout the day to help keep the eyes clear of
allergens. Naphazoline/pheniramine (Visine-A) is a combination
OTC product that contains an antihistamine and vasoconstrictor to
decrease symptoms. Antihistamines taken orally, such as cetirizine
(Zyrtec) also may help decrease signs and symptoms of allergic
conjunctivitis. When episodes occur more than two days per month,
a medication that contains both antihistamine and mast cell
stabilizing actions, such as olopatadine (Patanol). is preferred. This
medication is available with a prescription. 546215-F

Governor and Cabinet approve purchase of


Mussallem Trailhead Florida Forever Project


-Project calls for development of trailhead in St. Johns County-


TALLAHASSEE Governor
Charlie Crist and the Florida
Cabinet approved the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection's (DEP) proposal to
purchase a 24-acre parcel in St.
Johns County known as the
Mussallem Trailhead. The project
was funded using Florida Forever
monies from DEP's Office of
Greenways and Trails.
The property, to be developed
and managed by St. Johns County,
will serve as a major trailhead in
the region'providing direct access
to the State Road 207 Rail Trail
and the "St. Johns River to.Sea
Loop" trail and preserving a
significant amount of open
greenspace.
"Acquisition of this land will
significantly enhance the State
Road 207 Rail Trail and the St.
Johns River to Sea Loop trail.by
providing an additional trail access
point," said Bob Ballard, DEP
Deputy Secretary for Land and
Recreation. "This project was made
possible through collaboration with
other state and local agencies and
we are thankful to all the parties
involved for enabling this project
to move forward and benefit the
area's natural resources, local
communities and trails."
The Mussallem Trailhead parcel
was identified in 2007 as a priority
Florida Forever acquisition within
DEP's Office of Greenways and
Trails. Once developed, the
Mussallem Trailhead, located west
of Interstate 95 near St. Augustine,
will provide a nature trail, picnic
pavilion, restrooms, parking and
interpretive signage. The trailhead.
will also provide direct access to
the State Road.207 Rail Trail,. a


19.4-mile abandoned rail corridor
currently owned and being
developed as a multi-use trail by
the Florida Department of
Transportation. The Rail Trail also
connects to the "St. Johns River to
the Sea Loop" trail.
"Residents and tourists will
enjoy the beauty of North Florida
from this trailhead which will
connect St. Augustine to Florida's
award winning statewide trail
system," said Cyndi Stevenson, St.
Johns County Commissioner,
District 1. "It will promote healthy
lifestyles, invigorate local
economies and encourage small
business as part of the St. Johns
River to Sea Loop."
In September 2008, U.S.
Representative John Mica and State
Representative Bill Proctor joined
delegates from Putnam, St. Johns,
Flagler, Volusia and Brevard
counties as they signed a
memorandum of understanding
calling for the more than 260 mile
"St. Johns River to the Sea Loop"
to be completely connected and
paved by 2013, to commemorate
the 500th anniversary celebration
of Ponce de Leon's landing in
Florida.
"The Loop trail is quickly
becoming a very popular attraction
for bike tours and other
recreational opportunities,
underscoring the value of nature-
based tourism," said Jena Brooks,
Director of the DEP Office of
Greenways & Trails. "Projects such
as these are complex and take time
to dome to fruition, but the
investment is returned ten-fold in
the ripple effect of economic
benefits to so many communities
and the added attractions for.


visitors."
Florida has been named by
American Trails as "Best Trails
State in America," recognizing
DEP's Office of Greenways &
Trails for its vision and leadership,
which includes community
assistance, land acquisition, public
outreach and the management of
eight state trails and the Marjorie
Harris Carr Cross Florida
Greenway. The Greenway is
Florida's longest green corridor
stretching 110 miles from the St.
Johns River near Palatka to the
Gulf of Mexico near Inglis. Of the
eight state trails, six are rail-trails,
which are railroad corridors
converted to recreational trails for
hiking, biking, skating, equestrian
activities and alternative
transportation.

Florida's trails, visit

Florida."

BACKGROUND'
On January 14, EPA
made a determination
that numeric nutrient
criteria were necessary
in the state of Florida.


DEP agreed that development of the criteria was
necessary and committed to partnering with EPA
to make the necessary investments to derive
protective criteria for State waters. The "
determination established a one-year deadline for
EPA to propose criteria for streams and lakes, and
a two year deadline for EPA to propose criteria
for estuaries and coastal.waters. On Wednesday,
August 19, the United States Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) signed a consent decree
with Earthjustice establishing a deadline of
promulgating criteria nine months after the
criteria are proposed.
Working with the state's Nutrient Technical
Advisory Committee, DEP proposed draft rules
with criteriafor streams and.lakes in June 2009
and, held two public workshops to discuss the.
draft rules. For information on those rules, please
visit our Web site at
http://www.dep.state.fl.us/water/wqssp/nutrients/

Dear Classified Guys,
I consider myself a smart consumer,
but last week I had an experience
that caught me by surprise. Now that
my kids are grown, I started to clean
out the house. Among the items I
wanted to sell were a bunch of chil-
dren's toys. I took the time to review
them, make sure they were in good
working condition and even clean
them up. Then I took out an ad. One
woman came and bought a huge
chunk of what I was selling. I
thought the moving of things out of
my house was going well until she
stopped back a day later to return
one of the items. She told me that it
was on recall by the manufacturer
and asked for her money
back. I was astounded! It
never crossed my mind to B
look for recalls since all the
toys seemed to work fine. I
gave her the refund and took the
Item back, but what about the rest of
my things up for sale? Should I con-
tinue trying to sell them?
Carry: It's important to be an educat-
ed consumer whether you're buying or
selling. And it doesn't matter if you're,,
at the store or shopping the classified.
Cash: You took a great first step by


Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


2 T08/30/09
82009 The Classified Guysa


cleaning up the items and making sure
they were working properly. That's
important in order to sell things
quickly and create a win-win sale
for both parties.
Carry: For many items, especially
those involving children, you need to
also check to see if they are being
recalled by the manufacturer for any
safety hazards. You can find the infor-
mation by simply visiting The Consumer
Product Safety Commission's (CPSC)
website and searching for the product.
Cash: Safety recalls have gained a
lot of publicity in recent years. In fact,
the Consumer Product Safety
Improvement Act (CPSIA) now makes it


illegal to sell products that are,on recall
until they have been fixed. Although
the act is geared towards retail outlets, it
does apply to private citizens as well.
Carry: Since most buyers are not
aware of recalls, you should always
check prior to a sale. If you find an
item was recalled, the fixes are free and
often simple, such as adding safety
parts or warning labels. If the hazard is
more complex, you can return the item
for a replacement.
Cash: As for your other items,for
sale, check the CPSC.website. If the
items are not listed, then you can have
peace of mind in knowing that every-
thing is safe for you and anyone else.


Making the Grade
SDo you want to make sure an item
you're buying or selling isn't on the
recall list? Just visit The Consumer
Products Safety Commission's website at
www.cpsc.gov. Their site contains a
complete list of items on recall, the
potential hazard and how to resolve the
issue. The site lists recalls by product
type, manufacturer, product description
and even the type of hazard. Also, if you
have a product that you think should be
recalled, you can report it as well.
Recalling aTime Back
The Consumer Products Safety
Commission lists over 4,500 recalls and
alerts for everything from food to toys.
And some of the largest recalls have
occurred in the last few years. In the
spring of 2009, peanut products were
the focus of attention for the potential
of hosting salmonella. The largest beef
recall in history, over 143 million
pounds, occurred in February 2008.
And one of the most publicized recalls
was in September 2007 when traces of
lead were found in toys manufactured
in China.
Do you have a question or funny story about the
classified? Want to just give us your opinion?
We want to hear all about it! Email us at:
comments@classifiedguys.com.


Time Out
My wife Jill is constantly battling
with our children over watching tele-
vision during the day. They much
prefer to sit inside glued to the set
rather than venture out and play. You
can imagine how upset they were
when the TV died a few months ago.
They nagged us for weeks until we
finally gave in and bought a new set.
However, recently the TV picture
started fading out after a short while.
One night we looked up the problem
on the internet and found the televi-
sion had a recall that read;
"Television may overheat and turn
off after 20 minutes."
"Maybe we should take it back to
the store," I said to my wife.
"Are you kidding?" she smiled.
"With our kids, I would have paid for
That feature!"

Hazardous Toxins Lurking in Your Homel
People like to think of their home as a sanctuary, a safe retreat. What they :'
may not know is that their home could be teeming with toxins that pose health-
and environmental threats.
Toxins in U.S. homes account for about 90 percent of all reported poisonings
each year, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers.
While there are many groups that have come to the forefront in recent years to
safeguard homeowners against toxins, taking measures into one's own hands
is one of the best ways to protect against accidental poisonings or other
ramifications of toxin exposure.
Here are some of the most common and
hazardous toxins in and around the home.
1. Lead:Experts are continually modifying what constitutes safe lead levels.
Lead is known to contribute to learning disabilities and behavioral problems.
Lead is found in paint in older houses, old plumbing and soil near highways
and busy roads. Some states mandate lead testing in homes built prior to1978
before they can be resold. Lead can also cause neurological and kidney
damage, high blood pressure, disrupted blood cell production and
reproductive problems.
2. Radon: When people think of lung cancer, they may immediately envision
tobacco smoke and products, and rightfully so. However, radon is the second
leading cause of lung cancer cases. The trouble with radon is that it is a silent
foe. It is a natural radioactive gas that can seep into homes through cracks in
the basement, the surrounding foundation and in well water and enter the
body through the respiratory system.
3. Carbon monoxide: Another silent killer, carbon monoxide is largely
ermitted from unserviced furnaces that burn oil, natural gas or butane, It kills
hundreds of people each year in the U.S. alone. Having a carbon monoxide
detector on every level of the home can detect potentially harmful levels early.
4. Formaldehyde: Offgasses (evaporates) from this substance can be
emitted from cushions, particleboard and the adhesives used to manufacture
most inexpensive wood-based products. Carpets and carpet cushions may
also contain formaldehyde, causing eye and upper respiratory irritation.
According to the EPA, formaldehyde may even cause cancer.
5. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs): VOCs are found in hundreds of
natural and man-made, carbon-based agents. They react quickly with other
carbon-based compounds, and evaporate easily, making them effective
solvents. VOCs can be found in disinfectants and pesticides, too.

Lake City Community College Velveeta Underground to perform


presents its 2009-10 Lyceum

Performing Arts Series


Jazz will begin the year and show tunes will
end it at the Levy Performing Arts Center, as
the arts facility at Lake City Community
College has announced its 2009-10 Lyceum
Series.
"Once again we have worked hard and
watched many acts and narrowed down to six
our choices of what will comprise a smashing
season at the Levy Performing Arts Center this
year," says Mark Kirby, performing arts center
coordinator at LCCC.
This year's Lyceum lineup consists, as
always, of six shows:
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15: RIVER CITY
SATIN SWING. Go back in time to the
ambience of a 1940s jazz club with the sweet
sounds of Satin Swing, a nine-piece offshoot of
Jacksonville's St. Johns River City Big Band.
This show will be the most enjoyable evening a
swing music lover could want.
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27: EVEN MONEY.
A Bluegrass quartet featuring Lake City's own
Skip Johns (OK, he lives in Tallahassee now,
but he'll always be a hometown boy). The:
band's title is aptly named-it's a sure bet that
Even Money will provide a superb evening of
entertainment.
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2:
TOMASEEN FOLEY'S A CELTIC
CHRISTMAS. This act, which dazzled LPAC
audiences years ago, brings its Christmas show

TUESDAY, JANUARY 26, 2010: THE
SPENCERS THEATRE OF ILLUSION.

edge magic ever witnessed live on stage. This
husband and wife team shows that magic is
about spectacle, drama, interaction, and


personality. Come be amazed and entertained!
TUESDAY, MARCH 2, 2010: GOOD
LESSONS FROM BAD WOMEN. In honor of
Women's History Month we bring a funny and
insightful one-woman show by playwright and
actress Dorothy Leeds, who performs as many
famous females throughout the ages, from Eve
to a Chinese empress to Eleanor Roosevelt.
THURSDAY, MARCH 18, 2010:
BROADWAY TONITE! The bright lights of
Broadway come to Lake City! Beautiful
costumes, exciting choreography, and a mix of
new show hits and old standards make for a
fast-paced and thoroughly delightful musical
revue.
"I am proud to say that even in these difficult
economic times we have managed to keep the
same prices for both season and individual
tickets as last year," said Kirby. "Even if I
didn't have an ax to grind, I would be bragging
that I think we have a terrific lineup of shows,
especially when considering the ticket prices."

GAINESVILLE-The band
Velveeta Underground plays an
eclectic mix of blues, folk and
chamber rock. It is comprised of
two long-time local residents
and musicians that got together
and formed the group in 2006.
The duo has since been playing
regularly at some of the areas
most popular music venues. The
name, a take off on the popular
national group of the sixties,
Velvet Underground, was coined
by band member Jim Wegman
and, according to his partner
Don Austin, they have stuck
with it because it always gets a
smile when they say it.
Austin is a trained vocalist and
multi-instrumentalist who
switches off between the violin,
guitar, mandolin and bass. A
great improvisator on the violin,
Austin says he never plays a
song quite the same way twice,
but rather his licks are inspired
by blending with the music of
his talented partner. Wegman
sings and plays guitar, as well as
takes his turns on a unique
handmade upright bass banjo
that he'invented. When Wegman
is not playing music, he spends
his time painting and is a noted
world class faux artist.

Exotic fish poster



now available


"Don't release exotic pets!" That's the
message behind a new poster available
through ajoint effort between the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) and the Florida
Outdoor Writers Association (FOWA).
The 20" x 36" poster, titled "Some of
Florida's Exotic Freshwater Fishes,"
displays 17 species of nonnative fishes
currently established in Florida. These
exotic species were introduced by man
from foreign countries, and with a couple
of exceptions, are unwanted residents in
the Sunshine State.
There are 34 reproducing exotic fishes
established in Florida, according to the
FWC's Division of Habitat and Species
Conservation. The poster depicts the most
widespread or commonly caught species.
Wildlife artist Diane Rome Peebles.
produced 15 of the illustrations used in
this poster. The other two illustrations
were created by well-known wildlife
artist Duane Raver. University and
federal government researchers familiar
with each species advised the artists to
help create attractive, detailed and
accurate depictions.
The new "Exotic Freshwater Fishes"
poster was designed as a sister- .
publication to the FWC's "Freshwater
Fishes" poster.
"The FWC actually initiated this
project several years ago," said FWC
biologist Paul Shafland, who along with
biologist John Cimbaro created the
poster's design; "Without FOWA's
generous funding, it would not have come
to fruition at this time. We are very
grateful for their contribution."
FOWA provided $2,500 for printing of
9,300 posters, which are being made
available to the public at no cost. The


FWC hopes to convey a simple message.
"It is illegal to release any nonnative
fish or any other nonnative organism in
Florida," said Scott Hardin, the FWC's
exotic species coordinator. "The only way
to really stop exotics is to let people know
they should never release them."
Moreover, some people consider
releasing exotic pets inhumane because
most will die shortly after being released.
However, those that survive could have
detrimental environmental effects:
The FWC has a three-pronged approach
to exotic fishes: prevention of illegal
exotic fish releases through education,
development of specific regulations, and
law enforcement; assessment of those
exotic fishes already present in Florida to
understand what their effects really are;
and management aimed at reducing the
abundance of these unwanted residents.
One management approach is to .
encourage people to fish for exotic fishes
they can eat.
There are two exceptions: the butterfly
peacock bass, which was purposefully
released by the FWC to eat other exotic
fishes, while increasing recreational
angling opportunities in metropolitan
Southeast Florida canals; and the triploid
grass carp, which have been introduced to
eat exotic vegetation.
The exotic fishes poster is online in a
reduced, printable size at
MyFWC.com/images/Conservation/FWE
xoticsPoster_Small.jpg or a full-size
poster is available at any of the FWC's
regional offices. More information about
exotic species in Florida is at
MyFWC.com/Nonnatives. In the
meantime, the FWC is reminding
Floridians: "Help protect our natural
resources Don't release exotic pets!"

Nightmare on Test Anxiety Street


By John Hartzog
Lake City Community.
College testing specialist

Once upon a midnight, a
young man was walking F,
down a lonely road. He had
been out all night with his i i
friends and was on his way .
back home when he felt a a
presence behind him. He
turned back to see if he was .;
being followed but saw
nothing and continued on John Hartzog.
his way. The presence he
felt continued to gnaw at his back but each time he
checked only the wind met his gaze. Finally, home on his
doorstep the presence struck from the shadows, paralyzed
with fear the keys slipped from his hands, he gasped for
breath, and he-fell forward resting his brow on the front
door. The young man had just remembered he had a math
exam in eight hours. While this is hardly the stuff horror
movies are made of, many people experience a paralyzing
fear that inhibits their test performance capabilities. Test
anxiety, is a severe problem that plagues several people
who take tests every year. While, I doubt "Night of the
Living Exam" will be at the multiplex anytime soon, I'm
here to give you a few tips on how to deal with your
anxiety before the first tests of the new semester come
and terrorize you into making bad grades.

The biggest tip for reducing test anxiety is to study and
prepare for the examination that you will be taking. The
greatest fear people experience is that of the unknown.
Luckily, classes provide the answers to all tests they give
in the form of these expensive tomes called textbooks.
Make sure you always have your books the first day of
class and make sure you look over the material in
question on a regular basis. Taking notes in class is also a
very good way of learning what to expect on the exam.
Avoid "all-nighters" in an attempt to learn everything
before your test. Walking into the classroom on test day
with an idea of what will be presented on the test will
drastically reduce test anxiety and keep your head in the
game. When it comes to test anxiety knowing is half the
battle.
Of course, being prepared helps but other things can be
done to lower the anxiety one experiences on the exam
day. Be sure to' get plenty of rest the night before and
make sure you don't oversleep on test day. While sleeping
through a test is a great way to not experience anxiety it
also causes you to receive poor grades. Avoid caffeine
products such as coffee, chocolate, and soda pop. These
items can make it difficult for you to fall asleep. Make
sure to have some unwinding time, spend about a half
hour before bed, listening to music in a dim-lit room or
chatting with a friend before bed. Try to avoid watching
TV.or playing video games. These activities could cause
an emotional response that could once again make it
difficult to sleep. Getting a full eight hours of sleep and
waking up refreshed will help you deal with those pesky
test questions.
The last tip for those staring down the zombie army of
test questions is quite simply, dress appropriately. Make'

sure to dress comfortably, the last thing you need to worry
about is being too hot or freezing to death. Dressing in
layers can help avoid that problem since it allows you to
remove or add clothing depending on the temperature of
the room. Also appropriate shoes will also help, the Devil
may wear Prada but I bet his feet are killing him after
climbing stairs or running ten minutes across the campus
green. Remember being comfortable is the key on test
day. Whether it is pajamas or your favorite pair of jeans
make sure you're relaxed the day of the big exam.
So, there you have it students, the tips you need to
combat test anxiety. Although it is rather frightening there
is no need for shotguns, police, or the U.S. Army to deal
with this mean monster that goes bump in the night. You
just need to be prepared, dress comfortably, and avoid
those lonely, deserted roads in the late hours of the
evening.

The FWC lists Burmese and reticulated pythons
as reptiles of concern. The snakes are a threat to


Florida's delicate environment if they escape or are

New beetle discovered with help of wildlife grant


A State Wildlife Grant for a study to enhance the
state's database on rare invertebrates yielded more
than expected. The grant, awarded to the Florida
Natural Areas Inventory, brought a rare discovery: a
new beetle species called the Auburndale scrub
scarab, or Polyphylla starsae,.. .;. ;; ; ,o; ....; .,;
SDonna Stark, a volunteer with the project,: found
the medium-sized beetle in a patch of scrub near
Auburndale on the Winter Haven Ridge in Central
Florida in 2007. She made a note that it was a large
Phyllophaga, which is a group of scarab beetles. It
wasn't until 2009, when she began identifying all
the specimens collected, that she realized it could
possibly be a new species and sent it for .
identification to Paul Skelley at the Florida State
Collection of Arthropods.
"Who knows what else might be out there hiding
in other undersurveyed areas in the state?" said
Dave Almquist with the inventory group. "This just
shows how little we know."
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) Wildlife Legacy Initiative
runs the State Wildlife Grant program. In the
application for the grant, the Florida Natural Areas
Inventory noted that invertebrate species far
outnumber the combined total of plant and
vertebrate species in Florida, yet they have received
the least attention from natural resource agencies.
Destruction and degradation of habitat and localized
distributions may contribute to their extinction
without more data and careful management. Finding
a new species of any wildlife in Florida is important
news for the FWC and its partners.
"It's very exciting to find a new species," said Dr.
Thomas Eason, deputy director of.the FWC's


Division of Habitat and Species Conservation.
"Anytime we find more diversity among species we
are heartened. We're happy to have been a partner
with the Florida Natural Areas Inventory in this
discovery."
i ...Ivertebma.tesservye as potential indicators of .
ecosystem trouble and provide vital services to the
environment and humans as well. They are
pollinators, pest controllers, and vital players in the
food webs. The estimated annual economic value of
wild insect ecological contributions, not counting
other invertebrates or domesticated honey bees, is
$57 billion in the United States, according to a 2006
article in "BioScience" magazine.


.44. ~ '
I.. ?~:'.r-. .


"All of these ridges need preservation while it is
possible," Skelly said. "Once an animal is gone,
whether known or not, it is gone forever, and we
have lost any potential to benefit from its
existence."
,.Much more. still needs.to.be discovered about the,
Auburndale scrub scarab. Scientists have never seert
its larvae and know relatively little about its habits,
including how long it lives and whether it occurs
anywhere other than on one tiny patch of scrub. As
for the future, Almquist is certain about one thing.
"Finding this beetle makes it obvious that we
really need to survey all public lands, especially
those with rare habitats," Almquist said.
