shattered

Brett Fulton, who was
often Smokey Bear,
arew up in Wellborn

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.Iivingston@gaflnews.com
The family of a Department of
Forestry firefighter and Suwannee
High School graduate who was
killed in a Hamilton County wild-
fire Monday afternoon told the
Democrat their hearts are shat-
tered, though their memories of
the fallen hero will never be bro-
ken.
Brett Fulton, 52, who grew up in
Wellborn and graduated from SHS
in 1976, was one of two DOF


rangers who lost their lives Mon-
day working to contain the Blue
Ribbon wildfire about 14 miles
east of Jasper.
"When I first got the news, I
said to myself, 'I don't believe
this. I don't believe this, it's
wrong,'" said Fulton's mother
Nancy Mosely, who lives with her
husband and Fulton's stepfather
off CR 252 in Suwannee County.
"Then I came to realize that, no,
it's for real."

Brett Fulton


"When I heard the news,
it was like my heart was
ripped out and shredded."
- Andrew Creamer, nephew to firefighter
Brett Fulton who was killed battling a
blaze in Hamilton County Monday

Courthouse, as they presented their case in a
jury trail in Judge David Fina's courtroom.
Representatives of the state attorneys office,
the public defenders office, the U.S. Secret Ser- *
vice, civilian volunteers who serve as actors in M '

Betty W. Schmidt
June 15, 2011


S hmidt, Betty W., 84,
of Wellborn, died
peacefully at home
on June 15, 2011. She is
survived by her husband of
62 years, Roman Schmidt;
children Jon Schmidt
(Erin), David Schmidt,
Karen Parsons (Chuck),
Greg Schmidt (Lady),
Glenn Schmidt (Robyn),
Brian Schmidt (Margaret),
Barry Schmidt (Michelle)
and Eric Schmidt (Cyndi);
brother John Wolff, sister
Joan Wolff, 15 grandchil-
dren and 4 great-grandchil-
dren. Betty was preceded
in death by her parents, a
daughter, and one brother.
Betty was the daughter
of Victor G. & Margaret
Wolff of Oshkosh, Wis.
and was born in 1927. She
met her husband Roman in
Dayton, Ohio where they
were married in 1949 and
had three of their eight
children. In 1957, Roman
and Betty moved to Cutler
Ridge, Fla. where Betty
continued her first voca-
tion as a homemaker until
the last of her children was
bom in 1964. She then be-
gan her post-secondary ed-
ucation at the University of
Miami, Fla. where she ob-


trained both her Bachelors
and Masters degrees in Ed-
ucation. She taught 3rd
grade and kindergarten at
Airbase Elementary in
Homestead, Fla. Upon her
husband's retirement in
1977, Betty moved with
her husband to Wellborn,
Fla. and started teaching in
the reading center at
Suwannee Elementary East
in Live Oak, Fla. In the
mid-1980s, Betty returned
to her love of teaching
kindergartners their early
reading skills at the Co-
lumbia County Kinder-
garten Center, in Lake
City, Fla. where she com-
pleted her career as an ed-
ucator in 1989.
Betty's love of reading
continued throughout her
life, both professionally
and personally. Books
were never far from her
side. She spent many
hours of her free time in
her retirement years chal-
lenging herself with cross-
word puzzles. Her cross-
word dictionaries are quite
well worn as a testament to
her persistence and love of
these language challenges.
Betty remained active in
her later years, square
dancing into her 70s with
her husband and traveling
occasionally with both her
husband and sister, Joan.
Shakespeare wrote
"...some are born great,
some achieve greatness
and some have greatness
thrust upon them." Some
people attain their personal
greatness quietly. Betty
was a devoted wife, moth-
er and teacher. Her influ-
ence on those who were
fortunate enough to have
known her will last so
much longer than the time
she was granted here on
Earth.
The family would like to
thank Hospice of the Na-
ture Coast nurses Jaime
Beaver and Amanda Davis
with a special thanks to her


daughter-in-law Margaret
Schmidt for all of the lov-
ing care they provided.
In lieu of flowers, contri-
butions to either Hospice
of the Nature Coast or the
American Cancer Society
will be appreciated.
A memorial service will
be held at 10 a.m. at the
Epiphany Catholic Church,
Lake City, Fla. on June 29,
2011. A private service will
follow at the Jack-
sonville National Ceme-
tery, 4083 Lannie Road in
Jacksonville, Fla.

Plate concept replaces



the food pyramid


By Mary Ward


In 2005 the USDA intro-
duced the myPyramid cam-
paign based on consumer
research. The image was
used to describe the con-
cepts of variety, modera-


tion and proportion along
with the importance of
physical activity.
This month the USDA
unveiled the new plate con-
cept with accompanying
website which is designed
to replace the pyramid.
This new image follows
the 2010 dietary guidelines
and encourages Americans
to:
Make half of their plate
fruits and vegetables (and
that doesn't mean cooked
in fat or swimming in
creams or heavy syrups).
Make at least half of
your grains whole grains.
Switch to skim or 1%
milk
Vary your proteins.
Avoid oversized portions
Drink water instead of
sugary drinks
Compare sodium in
foods like soup, bread and
frozen meals-and choose
the foods with lower num-
bers.
With obesity rates on the
rise, the USDA felt that the
simpler message the plate
promotes may make nutri-
tion easier to understand
for the general population.

plate.gov or contact Karen

munities, Healthy People

OUR
Suwannee Democrat


A look


back
Our condolences to the family of
Joshua Burch and Brett Fulton. What a
tragic accident. It just proves how im-
portant our firefighters and other emer-
gency workers are. We tend to take for
granted what they do. We may report
on wildfires, and you may read about
them. However, we all tend to get so
caught up in life that we forget to think
of the dangers these folks face. These
guys paid the ultimate sacrifice. Thank
a firefighter today.


It's official. The voters will now de-
cide whether Suwannee County should
remain a dry county or go wet, as not-
ed in the front page story on the matter.
The ballot on Aug. 16 will ask voters
whether the permitting of sales of in-
toxicating liquors, wine or beer, or
those beverages containing more than
6.243 percent of alcohol by volume,
should be allowed or not. The second
question will ask if the county should
allow the sales by the package and
drink, or for sales by the package only.
This is important, so listen up. Wet by
the package only allows grocery stores,
liquor stores, etc. to sell intoxicating
drinks with more than 6.243 percent of
alcohol by volume. In other words,
sales made in sealed containers to be
consumed off premises. Wet by the
package and drink allows the latter as
well as the sell of such beverages to be
consumed on premises, such as restau-
rants. We are advocating for sales by
the package and drink.



June Bug was a nice success. Great
job to all who made this event possible.
There was plenty to do for the entire
family, and the fireworks show at the
end was a nice ending. We can't wait to
see what's in store next year.

But those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength. They

they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

Rant



Want to vent? Our


hotline is open 24/7.

Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak your mind! How? By
calling the Suwannee 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.
My question on this Crapp's subject is WHY? When what
we really need for our children is a new place for the Boys
and Girls Club . They need a larger facility , basketball
courts, activity rooms, pool, a gymnastic place, and a play-
ground. So this is what is most important. Not some run down
unused school that they can only have the use of one side of
the building. This is a community program. They survive on
donations , and outside funding. Why couldn't this commu-
nity help support this for our children and the future of their
children.
Sincerely,
Concerned Parent
Cabbage palms in downtown Live Oak??? If we must have
some shrub/tree breaking up sidewalks, how about a plant na-
tive to Suwannee County? Cabbage palms??? I say no. How
about large pots of flowers or colorful shrubs that the Garden
Club can care for?
A special thanks to the 6000+ who signed the YES peti-
tion. You have now added a $42,000 election to the County's
balance sheet. Maybe the YES committee should have col-
lected $7.00 from each signatory of the petition to offset the
cost of the election. This is a good example of the majority
being taxed for the will of the minority. 25% of the electorate


Rave

wants a special election (the number of people who needed to
sign the petition) and the rest of us get to help pay for it. I
guess my road won't get graded this quarter so we can pay for
the special election.
The flags for flag day in Live Oak downtown, were beau-
tiful. Great job Kiwanis, keep it up.
Looking at the Suwannee High School graduates pictures
causes me to ask the question, how many white boys dropped
out after the eighth grade? How many black boys dropped
out after the eighth grade? How many white girls dropped out
after the eighth grade? And how many black girls dropped out
after the eighth grade? It surely looks like they are missing a
lot of 9th grade black students.
Many, many thanks to Michael Pate and Jamie Kirby for
running the Brain Bowl. Congratulations to all the Suwannee
High Schoolers who done so well. It is nice to see such suc-
cessful kids.
I think the City Councilmen have absolutely lost their
minds. I would like a poll taken from each of them to see if
they think it is a good idea for them to personally buy the
Crapps' property as an investment. I would really like to
know the answer to that. I think they should rescind their de-
cision and save us all a lot of money. Thank you.
You know the City can't claim they're broke, and now they
are buying the Crapps house. How stupid do you have to be
to know you are broke?
Yea, I see the names that voted yes, on this stupidity thing
on the Crapps Mansion. Believe me you three, I will be vot-
ing against you everywhere I can and talking to people that
will vote against you come the next election. We will try to to
remove you. And believe me voting works, and word of
mouth will get you out, I promise you. Thank you.

OPINION


The 3rd annual June Bug Festi-
val was a great success. It is satis-
fying to see how it has grown in
just three years. I was in the down- -
town area three times during the
day. Each time, there were a good-
ly number of folks taking advan-
tage of the activities. The parade
was a little disappointing but the
fireworks were great. They culmi-
nated what was a very successful BY SONNY
and fruitful festival. Thanks to Mr.
John Hughes, Huffman and Gilmore, for allowing us to shoot
the fireworks from his parking lot. A big THANK YOU goes
out to Barney Everett, Hardy Tillman, Jeanne d'Eaue'de and
others for all their hard work. You all "done good".
Congratulations to the graduating seniors in the Suwannee
County School system. These young people will move on
and begin a new era in their lives. They will continue their
education, join the military, move into the job market or
whatever. Any of these options will be tough. I wish them the
best of luck in whatever road they travel into the future.
I wanted to talk, okay write, Heritage Park. Many have
their opinions about whether the City should accept the prop-
erty. I did want to hopefully clear up some misconceptions
about this issue. First, the City of Live Oak is not purchasing
this property. The City will not have any money in the pur-
chase of the property. The property is being purchased by the
Florida Community Trust and given to the city. FCT pur-
chases property in the state of Florida to assure properties
will be preserved for future use by the public. We need those
75 acres for the future. There is a twenty (20) percent match
to be made by the recipient of the property, the city of Live
Oak. Mr. Daniel Crapps will pay this twenty (20) percent
match from his proceeds of the sale of the property. He will
pay all closing costs and also construct a sidewalk, at his own
expense, from White Avenue to the property. Mr. Crapp's
contribution to this project is $243,925 which will come from
the purchase price of the property. I have always found
Mr.Crapps to be a giver over the years. His contributions to
this community and the entire area have been tremendous.
The list of things he has supported over these many years
would be extensive. Thank you Mr. Daniel Crapps for caring.


MAYOR'S
CORNER


The Crapps property is not the
only property involved in the FCT
Project. FCT will also purchase the
old CSX railroad track roadbed from


Helvenston Street to Ichetucknee
Road. For those of you that are rela-
tively newcomers, this roadbed ran
between Railroad Avenue and the
pecan grove. This property is crucial
in being able to pave Ichetucknee
[OBLES Road in the future. It will also pro-
vide property for a walking trail
around this portion of the perimeter of the site. Mr. Crapps
will also pay the twenty (20) percent match and closing costs
for this particular property.
The house seems to be a major point of contention. The
house was an important element in acquiring the property.
Acquisition of the property from FCT was a competitive
process. Many other groups were eligible to receive these
funds. Acquiring the house maximized the number of points
we were awarded in the competitive process. The house
made the difference in whether we received the grant or not.
The Friends of the Park have guaranteed the maintenance of
the grounds for the next year and beyond. The house will

From our readers
Dear Editor,
Personally, I do NOT agree with planting palm trees on the
down town streets of Live Oak. I feel there are much better
choices to bring beauty to the downtown area. Many small
towns such as Thomasville,Georgia have planted small slow
growing trees with tiny leaves which are light and airy look-
ing and invite people to enjoy walking down the side-
walks. Please research purchasing trees that are more com-
patible to north Florida. I do not feel palm trees will bring a
relaxing feeling to the streets of Live Oak or add any beauty.

The Branford FFA Chapter recently attended
the 83rd Annual Florida FFA Convention held
in Orlando.
The chapter received many awards and
proved to be very successful at this year's con-
vention. Many students received awards in pro-
ficiency areas and degree recognition.
An SAE (Supervised Agriculture Experience)
program is an actual, hands-on application of
concepts and principles learned in the agricul-
ture education classroom. The Branford FFA
Chapter received the State SAE Award for hav-
ing completed proficiencies in 10 or more dif-
ferent categories. In addition, they had several
state finalists in different proficiency areas.


These students ranked among the top four appli-
cants in a specific proficiency area in the state
of Florida.
The following students were recognized for
their SAE programs on stage at the convention:
Dewayne Aderholt: Agricultural Service
JT Byrd: *forest management & products,
agricultural repair
Jordan Gaylard: *specialty crop, agricultural
processing, forage
Trevor Harrison: *home and community de-
velopment

AN HONEST LOOK AT BIBLE
TRUTHS #1

An honest heart and an open Bible will
prepare us for eternity. Sadly much of the religious
teaching of our day is rooted in the thinking of men
rather than in the truth of God's word. WHAT
DOES THE BIBLE SAY -
1) About God?
Dan.. 2:28 "There is a God in Heaven."
Paul told the church in Philippi [4:19] that God
would "Supply all your need according to His
Riches in glory by Christ Jesus." God is ever
present, the all powerful Creator of the universe.
God knows everything about us and He cares
deeply about our eternal destiny. He wants us in
Heaven.
2) About Jesus?
John 6:69 "you are the Christ, the Son of
the living God." Jesus being the son of the living
God died for us, was buried and rose again to
make our salvation possible [1 Cor. 15:1-4].
3) About Sin?
Rom. 6:23 "The wages of sin is death."
Sin keeps us from having a right relationship with
God. All of us have sinned [ Rom. 3:23]. Jesus died
for our sins [Rom. 5:8].

Murder trial for Wellborn bludgeoning still a ways off


Same goes for 76th Street murder


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.lIivingston@gaflnews.com

Murder trials for the separate killings of
two Suwannee County men aren't expect-
ed to take place until at least next year, a
state prosecutor said.
Manuel Raulerson, 64, was discovered
dead on the front porch of his home on
Nov. 10 by a relative. Authorities say he
was fatally shot in the heart a few days be-
fore.
Officials arrested Charles E. Hines, 20,


and Juan E Gainer Jr, 23, who face charges
of first degree murder in the case. Edward
Hines Jr., 18, was arrested as an accessory
to first degree murder in Raulerson's
death, officials said.
In March, an elderly man was blud-
geoned to death by way of a meat clever in
the camper trailer in which he lived.
Robert Przybysz, 82, of Wellborn, was
found dead in his 47th Place camper trail-
er. The Suwannee County Sheriff's Office
arrested Shane Scott Worrell, 37, in Mari-
on County, where he fled, as a suspect in


the murder. He is accused of hitting Przy-
bysz in the head multiple times with a meat
cleaver before taking Przybysz's wallet
and fleeing, Suwannee County Sheriff
Tony Cameron said.
"I don't expect these trials to go until af-
ter the new year," said Third Circuit Assis-
tant State Attorney Craig Jacobsen.
Meanwhile, trials for the two men offi-
cials say are responsible for the execution-
style shootings of three members of a
McAlpin family in August will be held
near the end of this year, according to Ja-
cobsen.
If convicted, James Lindsey Howze,


O'Brien and Lonnie Robert Munn, Live
Oak, could face the death penalty for the
murders of Joseph Militello Jr., 57; his
wife Nancy Militello, 68 and their nephew
Angelo Rosales, 32. Police say the three
were found with one shot each to the back
of the head, lying face down in their home
on Aug. 26.
Jacobsen said the defendants will re-
ceive separate proceedings. The trial for
Howze is scheduled during the October
term, Munn's in December.
To learn more about each, visit our web-
site at www.suwanneedemocrat.com and
search the victim's name.


Rant


Continued From Page 9A


I think we witnessed a
little bit of Washington,
DC politics right here in
our own little community.
Politicians, once in power,
think that they can do any-
thing they want, regardless
of the will of the people.
Their sense of power over
shadows their sense of
duty. Mayor Sonny Nobles
and the City Council, with
the exception of Adam
Prins, has allowed this to
happen to them when they
chose to disregard the com-
munity's wishes, by ac-
cepting the offer of the
DOT's offer of palm trees
to line the downtown
streets. All they heard was
the word FREE, and
wouldn't even listen to any
alternative views from the
citizens. Their views and
ideas are more important
than anyone else. Do they
have Live Oak's wishes at
heart or are they only act-
ing in their own self inter-
ests and desires. This may
be a small item, but in the
view of some, it speaks
volumes about our elected
city councilmen. When
they have bigger issues to
handle, will they cave into
their own desires or will
they carry out the wishes of
those they serve?

What in the world is the
City Council thinking?
First agreeing to purchase
and maintain the Crapps'


Rave


house. Not only removing
it from the tax rolls, but
agreeing to pay for the
costly maintenance. This is
absurd and not in the inter-
est of the taxpayers AND
voters. Secondly, palm
trees in downtown Live
Oak. This is a cruel joke.
Everyone knows all that
palm trees are good for is
harboring cockroaches.
Like they said in Apollo 13,
"Live Oak, we have a
problem."

In other counties repeal-
ing prohibition laws, the
chamber of commerce
spearheaded & supported
the effort. Their mission is
to aid economic expansion
for the members & commu-
nity, they get paid for this.
If the chamber wants sup-
port from yours truly, they
need to step up to the plate
& fulfill this function. The
chamber & downtown revi-
talization both stand to ben-
efit considerably by scrap-
ping this law. I'm sure they
will accept new member's
dues when new establish-
ments begin opening here!
As usual, hypocrisy & spe-
cial interest hold sway
above all else. Please vote
to change this bad law.

I am tired to death about
hearing this "free money"
baloney at City Hall. Now,
they are saying these palm
trees that no one wants are
okay since they are pur-
chased with free money.

other funding becomes

If the same negative
mentality had prevailed
years ago, there would not
be a First Federal Sport-
splex today. There was no
money, no land, just a vi-
sion. Thank goodness there
were visionaries back then
also. They were willing to
step out and make things
happen. Will our commu-
nity progress or stagnate?
Many propose the destiny
of our community is based
on the sale of liquor. It is
my opinion that the
strength of our communi-
ty's future is in the hands
of our children. The Scrip-
tures tell us, "Train up a
child in the way he should
go: and when he is old, he
will not depart from it."
(Proverbs 22:6) I com-
mend the three Council-
men that approved the ac-
quisition of the property.
These men will be remem-
bered as visionaries and
heroes by parents and kids
that will benefit from and
enjoy the property forever.
I hope all you Dads had
a wonderful Father's Day.
In our society today,
twenty-seven (27) percent
of households don't have
a father living in the
home. The task of raising
children has fallen on sin-

ents. I see kids, for all
practical matters, that
have been thrown away.
Many are ignored and
pretty much on their own
with very little parental
support or supervision.
Thank goodness we have
many Dads and Mothers
that make their family and
children the center of their
world. They immerse
themselves in the lives of
their children whether in
school or other activities.
These parents have pretty
much assured the success
of their children in the fu-
ture. Keep up the good
work.
Remember, your unused
and unwanted medication
can be deposited in the
MED RETURN BOX at
the Suwannee County Jail.
Let's keep those medica-
tions out of the hands of
children and others that
should not have access to
them. These drugs should
not be flushed. They end
up in our drinking water
supply.
Did you know that
chances are someone you
know will be involved in a
vehicle crash this year?
Did you know that you are
twice as likely to be severe-
ly injured or killed when
unbuckled? Did you know


that a child unrestrained in
a 30 MPH crash is like a
child dropped from a third-
story window? Well, now
you know. Wear those seat
belts and insist that those
riding with you wear theirs
also. Your life could de-
pend on it.
Thanks to all that con-
tributed to the relief effort
for Hackleburg, Alabama.
Thousands of dollars were
donated and a truckload of
much needed necessities
were collected and trans-
ported to Alabama last
week. We are truly a CAR-
ING COMMUNITY.
The city Of Live Oak
will host the quarterly
meeting of the Suwannee
River League of Cities.
The meeting will be held at
the Florida Sheriff's Boys
Ranch on July 14. We ex-
pect over one hundred
elected officials, staff
members and others from
27 area communities and
eight counties to attend. I
am asking that businesses
or individuals contribute
one door prize. It can be a
gift card, merchandise
from you business or even
a cash donation. We will
pick donations up or they
can be dropped off at City
Hall. Your help is needed.
Thanks!

Firefighter's family shattered


Joshua Burch


Continued From Page 1A

Joshua Burch, 31, of
Lake City, was the other
ranger killed by the flames
when one of four tractors
plowing fire containment
lines got stuck on a stump
around 4:45 p.m. Monday.
Hamilton County Sheriff
Harrell Reid said another
tractor came to help, but
the flames shifted, trapping
Burch and Fulton. Two
other rangers with the Live
Oak Forestry Station,
Robert Marvin of Jasper
and Stephen Carpenter of
Madison were injured
when they attempted to
rescue the two men. Both
were taken to area hospi-
tals, treated for smoke-re-
lated injuries and released.
Burch and Fulton lived
in Columbia County and
worked with the Suwannee
Forestry Center in Lake
City.
"He died doing some-
thing that he really was
happy to do," said Mosely
of Fulton.
She said her son's fa-
vorite part of being a
ranger was educating
young children on fire
safety and about the dan-
gers of wildfires.
"He always looked for-
ward to dressing up as
Smokey Bear," she said,
emotional. "He loved the
kids. He was wonderful."
Fulton leaves behind a
wife, Margaret, and two
adult children, Christina
Fulton-Mills, 28, and Brett
Michael Fulton, 26, along
with two grandchildren. He

met Margaret, the love of
his life, while attending
high school at SHS when
Fulton was 16. They were
married soon after his grad-
uation.
"He never looked at an-
other one," said Mosely.
"That was it for them, they
were together from then
on."
The Blue Ribbon wildfire
off CR 6 in Hamilton Coun-
ty was ignited by lightning
June 16, according to offi-
cials. Although the fire was
declared contained early
Monday, extreme fire
weather conditions spread
the flames later that same
day.
As of mid-afternoon
Tuesday, the fire had been
contained to about 12 acres.
Fulton's nephew Andrew
Creamer, of Jacksonville,
said his uncle was like a fa-
ther to him.
"He was my best friend,"
said Creamer who added
that Fulton was best man in
his wedding. "When I heard
the news, it was like my
heart was ripped out and
shredded," he said. "I will
never forget the times we
shared. Whether it was tak-
ing me to play basketball or
football on a weekend af-
ternoon, hunting, fishing,
going to a Gator game or
watching one on T.V., he
would always make it a
special memory; one that,
although unbearably
painful now, I will always
remember and cherish."
A niece of Fulton's said
he will be remembered as a
great son, father, husband,
uncle and friend.
"Uncle Brett was an
amazing person," said Rhi-
annon Wooten. "He was al-
ways willing to help any-
one in need and he loved
his job."
Friend Patty Roach will
remember Fulton fondly.
"We met in high school
when he started dating my
friend and his wife Mar-
garet," she said. "He will be
greatly missed."

Debi Hessebrock said local
communities have given
their family overwhelming
support.
"Friends and family have
been here non-stop," she
said. "They've all been
wonderful."
Hessebrock said one of
Fulton's nephews, Trey
Fulton, is currently serving
in Baghdad, Iraq and won't
be able to come home to
give his uncle one last
goodbye.
"He's devastated," she
said. "We're a very, very
close family."
When Hessebrock's 18-
year-old daughter was
killed in a car accident in
1992, she said it was Fulton
and his wife who she turned
to.
"He was just a wonderful
person," she said.
In White Springs, Volun-
teer Fire Department Chief
Steve Stith said Fulton's
death is for them, a tragedy.
Fulton also worked as a
volunteer firefighter for the
town.
"He was on our depart-
ment for about a month,"
Stith said. "His number 706
will be retired and no one
will ever have that number
again."
In a press release from
Gov. Rick Scott on Tues-
day, he stated, "As Florida
faces a significant threat
from more than 400 wild-
fires across our state, we
are saddened to learn of the
tragic loss of two of our
veteran firefighters, Joshua
Burch and Brett Fulton. We
pray for the comfort and
strength for their families
and fellow firefighters."
During Tuesday night's
Suwannee County Com-
mission meeting Public
Safety Director Charlie
Conner said all local emer-
gency personnel are mourn-
ing the loss of Burch and
Fulton.
"It just tears at my heart
when guys or gals are out
there just doing their jobs,
and end up losing their
lives," he said.
For now, Fulton's tight-
knit family has a hole in
their heart that they say will
probably never mend com-
pletely.
"He was so beautiful. He
was my beautiful son,"
Mosely said crying.

Man shot in head, back


Continued From Page 1A

80th Place around 8:20
Tuesday morning in refer-
ence to a shooting.
Cameron told the Demo-
crat Wednesday that Sim-
mons and Oscar Lee
Kersey, 19, of Live Oak,
were parked on the right-
of-way of 80th Place in
western Suwannee County
in Simmons' truck, near
the home that responders
were called to. Cameron
said that each man's story
is different - Kersey said
Simmons tried to rob him.
Simmons, on the other
hand, told authorities that
he was kidnapped by four
men and shot execution
style.
"We know that's not
true," said Cameron about
Simmon's account.
He said Simmons story
changed some, but before
they could question him
further, Simmons was
rushed into surgery. Now,
authorities must wait to get
answers.
Cameron said there ap-
pears to have been an alter-
cation between Kersey and
Simmons during which
Simmons was somehow
shot. Cameron said his of-
fice was told by Kersey the
two were fighting over the
gun when it went off.
Cameron said after Sim-
mons was shot, he fled to


the nearby home to seek
help. Kersey fled in Sim-
mons truck.
Later, Kersey was arrest-
ed on other charges, includ-
ing two counts of sale of
cocaine within 1,000 feet
of a place of worship, two
counts of possession of co-
caine with the intent to sell
and grand theft auto.
Cameron said the gun
that was used to shoot Sim-
mons was not located, but
was told it was some sort of
revolver.
SCSO Chief Deputy Ron
Colvin said Simmons truck
is still missing as well. He
said Kersey advised the
truck could be found near a
Live Oak church, then told
authorities later it could be
found in Lake City.
As for charging Kersey
with the shooting of Sim-
mons, Cameron said his of-


ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: What in heaven's name is
thrombocytopenia?
A: Well, it certainly is a mouthful of a
word. In short, it's a disorder that
can cause excessive bleeding. In the
mouth, that will generally manifest
itself in prolonged bleeding from the
gums. It also can cause patches of
purple, which are called purpura, on
the gums and other soft tissue in the
mouth. The patches form as a result
of weakened capillaries-small blood
vessels-caused by the condition.
They let blood leak into the tissue.
To back up on the explanation of the
word, thrombocytes are specialized
blood cells, or platelets, that aid in
the clotting of blood. Any disorder in
which person has an abnormally
low platelet count is called throm-
bocytopenia. Among common
symptoms are a propensity toward
bruising, nosebleeds and bleeding in
the mouth. The condition can be
hereditary, or it can develop as a
reaction to certain medication,
especially those used in caner treat-
ment.
Though these oral symptoms can be
starting, they require no special
care. Treatment involves getting at
the cause of the underlying platelet
shortage. Talk with your dentist any
time you have any abnormal bleed-
ing in the mouth.

Continued From Page 1A

scheduled for Aug. 8 - 13.
Absentee voting will be
available, and should begin
around mid-July, according
to the Supervisor of Elec-
tions Office.
"Our challenge is to let
the voters know to get out
and vote on August 16 and
to vote for selling intoxicat-
ing liquors, by package and
drink," said Young. "It's
our goal to provide infor-
mation to help educate vot-
ers about this very impor-
tant community issue."

corey.davis@gaflnews.com
Thanks to the local library, this past
week I was able to fill several holes in
my notebook regarding missing years of


Suwannee football history.
I was able to find schedules and
scores from looking through yearbooks
from 1936, 1937, 1942, 1944, 1946,
1947, 1948, 1949, 1951, 1952, 1953,
1954, 1955 and 1966.


I am getting closer to my goal of be-
ing finished, see the attached chart to
track my progress and what I'm missing
still.
On Monday, I am meeting with Lynne
Roy, a former Suwannee High English


teacher and guidance counselor who has
31 yearbooks from 1971 to current. This
will help tremendously and allow me to
hopefully fill holes from 1972, 1973,

Still seeking football history


Continued From Page 1B

1974, 1975, 1976, 1977,
1978, 1979, 1980, 1983,
1984, 1985, 1986 and
1994.
That will still leave me
with searching for results
from the following years
still: 1926, 1927, 1928,
1929, 1930, 1931, 1932,
1933, 1934, 1935, 1940,
1941, 1943, 1944, 1945,
1950, 1956, 1957, 1958,
1959, 1960, 1961, 1962,
1963, 1964, 1965, 1967,
1968, 1969.
Remember football is
played in the fall, you
graduate in the spring. So
when I say I am searching
for the 1968 season, that is


the 1968-69 school year
and 1969 yearbook.
As far as Branford I
have been able to track
down scores from 1994-
2010 but I am still missing
several years from 1948
till 1993. If you have any
old Branford yearbooks
feel free to email me or
call me please so I may
copy down the old sched-
ules and scores.
I still received emails
and phone calls from peo-
ple sending me copies of
yearbook pages or infor-
mation from previous foot-
ball seasons.
This is what I mean by
community support, some-
one took the initiative to


send me information.
While doing some re-
search, I found out that
Branford, Suwannee,
Hamilton and Lafayette
High Schools have all
played for state titles in
football.
However you wouldn't
know that, looking around
each of the four stadiums.
That's why I intend to re-
search every season for all
four schools and track
their football history.
I need your help though,
a horrific fire in October
1995 destroyed years of
old volumes of newspaper
books.
If you or you know of
someone who has/have old


yearbooks or newspaper
clippings, please feel free
to call me, email me or
stop by and show me old
schedules and results.
The idea is by next foot-
ball season, to have every
single schedule and results
from every season from all
four schools.
If you have been to the
Suwannee at Columbia
football game, chances
are you have picked up a
program sometime. In the
back of the program, Co-
lumbia lists every single
schedule and game results
from every year as well as
the coaches records.
I would like to do this
for all four schools, but I


need the communities of
Live Oak, O'Brien,
McAlpin, Houston, Well-
born, Mayo, Branford,
Jasper, Jennings and Lu-
raville's help.
Thanks to the Internet, I
have been able to track
down scores for all four
teams from the 2000s, but
I am still missing several
years.
I believe schools in
Jasper, Jennings and White
Springs consolidated into
Hamilton County High
around 1975.
All the information I
gather will be available in
each schools football pro-
grams from now on, pro-
viding they don't object to


it.
With 80 years of foot-
ball history, Suwannee,
Branford, Hamilton or
Lafayette could well be on
their way to say their 500
or 600 all-time victory but
we will never know unless
I get help.
Wouldn't you want to
know how Suwannee has
done all-time against
Madison County or Co-
lumbia, or how Branford
has done against long time
rivals Bell, Bronson and
Lafayette or how Hamilton
has done against Suwan-
nee or even perhaps
against Branford and
Lafayette.


Lake City Speedway report


Continued From Page 1B

hand for the night were
four racing divisions: Pure
Stock, Hornets, Thunder
Stock, and E-Modifieds.
The Pure Stocks were
the first feature event for
the evening. On the pole
we saw Larry Welter Jr in
his camaro # 58 followed
on the outside pole by Roy
Crain Jr. in his # 31 Chevy
Monte Carlo. Second row
featured Jason Garver #12
and Adam "The Hittman"
Hitt #41 in a pair of Monte
Carlos.
Folks don't let this small
field of cars fool you.
These men put on a show
of driving talent that would
rival most short track
NASCAR events.
Action started at the drop
of the green flag. Adam
Hitt put the nose of his
Monte Carlo to the back of
Crain Jr. and pushed him
by Welter, giving Crain the
lead by turn one. Hitt
tucked in on his bumper
followed by Garver and
Welter Jr.
Crain maintained the
lead unchallenged until the
half way point of the fea-
ture. That is when the ac-
tion really heated up. The


41 of Hitt did not come to
run second, neither did
Garver. Hitt would try the
high side to get around
Crain Jr., but Crain would
have none of that.
Holding the blue and
black Chevy on the bottom
and powering down the
straightaways, Crain
would hold off each charge
Hitt made. Hitt did not
have it easy either, each
time he would move that
red and white 41 to the out-
side Garver would stick the
nose of his car under the
quarter panel of Hitt and
try to take second spot
from him.
All the while Welter Jr.,
was running fourth waiting
and watching the trio of
wheel men in front of him
battle it out for the
lead. Welter would try sev-
eral times to take third
from Garver only to be de-
nied each exit of each turn.
On lap eighteen, Hitt
would try one last ditch ef-
fort to get by Crain on the
outside. Powering up to the
door handle of Crain's
Monte Carlo, the drivers
would touch coming off
turn four.
This was the opening
Garver was looking


for. Taking advantage of
Hitt's misfortune, Garver
would take over the second
spot. Hitt would have to
settle in and defend third
against the relentless Wel-
ter Jr.
Roy Crain Jr. would
bring home his third fea-
ture win, leading wire to
wire followed by Jason
Garver, Adam Hitt, and
Larry Welter Jr. That was
one the best racing battles
seen at the New Lake City
Speedway in quite some-
time.
The second feature of the
night would see Kim All-
dredge in the Hornet Class
take her #46 to the front
and never receive a chal-
lenge. Kim would cruise to
victory followed by Bran-
don Heanult and Larry
Farmer.
Up next would be the ex-
citing open wheeled E-
Mods. This event would
see action as well. Sean
Monaghan, Larry Welter Jr.
and J.E McClellan would
do battle early. Monaghan
would take the point and
lead until the end.
Welter Jr. and J.E Mc-
Clellan would battle over
second position most of the
race. Welter Jr. found him-


self in a familiar spot run-
ning third behind the red #1
of McClellan. Welter fresh
from the earlier battle in the
pure stock division had
news McClellan. Welter
would power by McClellan
and take the second spot.
Sean Monaghan in the #21
would easily finish first fol-
lowed by Larry Welter Jr.
#51, J.E McClellan #1,
"Diamond" Jim Higgin-
botham #76, and Chuck
Lintz in the # 49.
Thunder Stocks would
round out the show this
night with another exciting
race. This event was by far
the largest car count of the
night. Eleven competitors
would slice and dice for 25
laps of fender rubbing,
bumper to bumper, wheel


to wheel action.
Larry Welter Sr., Larry
Welter Jr., (this kid will dri-
ve anything with wheels on
it), Juan Montavlo, Daniel
Keene, Tony Deas, Morris
"Gator" Richardson, Billy
Briggs, Don Cruce, Shawn
DeSotle, Laura DeVorak,
and Andy Nichols rounded
out the finish order.
This event was dominat-
ed by action throughout the
field. The Welters, Senior
and Junior would battle for
the lead, exchanging it sev-
eral times before Sr.
showed Jr. how to get it
done. Montavlo, Keene,
Deas, and Gator would
swap position so many
times it was nearly impos-
sible to keep track.
Come join the racing ac-


tion this Saturday June 25
for the "DIXIE 50", this
will be 50 laps of Street
Stock racing at its finest.
These boys will be bat-
tling not only for the $500
first place prize money, but
bragging rights for the
longest event of the year.
Also on tap for the night
will be E-Mods, Sports-
man, Hornets, and Thunder
Stock.
The New Lake City
Speedway is located off I-
75 south at exit 414, turn
right on Howell Road (be-
tween the S&S and the
B&B) go one mile down on
your left to the asphalt
short track racing facili-
ty. Admission is $10 per

free.

WHEREAS, on June 21, 2011, petitions were filed with the Board of County
Commissioners of Suwannee County, Florida (hereafter called "Board"), bearing the
signatures of one-fourth, and more, of the registered voters of said County, along with a
certificate of examination and validation of the signatures by the Supervisor of Elections
of said County; and

WHEREAS, the aforesaid petitions requested the Board to order an election to
determine the following two questions:

containing more than 6.243 percent of alcohol by volume shall be
prohibited or permitted in Suwannee County, Florida; and
2. To decide whether the sale of intoxicating liquors, wines, or beer, if

the package, may be permitted.

WHEREAS, Section 567.04, Florida Statutes, provides, "All elections ordered under this

prohibited in Suwannee County, and if not prohibited determine the method of sale; and
it is further
ORDERED, that the aforesaid election shall be a "polling place election" as provided
under Chapter 100, Florida Statutes, and related Florida Statutes; and, said election

further

ORDERED, that, in accordance with Section 567.01(5), Florida Statutes, the Clerk of

RELIGION


Doctrinal views expressed on our Religion pages are those of the individual authors and not of the Suwannee Democrat.





The Honor of believing Knowing


Dr. Donald M. Minshew
Senior Pastor
Wellborn Baptist Ci,... i


Peter concen-
trates more on
those who do not
believe than those
who do in 1 Peter
2:6-8. It would be
a mistake, howev-
er, to conclude
that this makes
those who do not


1^\
I~ L


believe more important. In fact, one
of the most important pieces of in-
formation that the Lord communi-
cates is that it is an honor to believe
in Christ. You wouldn't think it
from the way that we present it
sometimes. All too often the oppor-
tunity to come to Christ is presented
in such a way that it seems that we
do Him a favor by believing. Let's
remember first of all who we're
dealing with. I love the song by
Casting Crowns Lifesong. The first
words are "who am I that you are
mindful of me... that you hear me
when I call." The God of the Uni-
verse has opened a way for us to
approach Him. When we believe it


is an honor: to have the right to
serve him and to live in such a way
that He is honored.
Sadly, though open to all, many
will not avail themselves of this
honor. For them, Christ is not the
cornerstone that allows them to
build a life of strength in the pre-
sent. Instead, He is "a stone to
stumble over, and a rock to trip
over." Their stumble is over the
identity and nature of the Corner-
stone.
This is actually a quote from
Psalm 118:22 and a quote that Peter
has heard quoted in context. When
Jesus used it, his reference was
aimed at the chief priests and Phar-
isees who had rejected Him. The is-
sue for every man is whether to ac-
cept Christ as the foundational
statement of their lives. Many
would believe that there are many
avenues that can be used to find
their way to God. The problem is
that God has written an "exclusivity
clause". Jesus declared, "No one
comes to the Father except through
me. " So for Christians, it is not the
pride in our religion that causes us
to cry out..,.one way. We are forced
to declare the clear message of God


that there is no other way. And this
is where many will stumble.
What is the penalty for the stum-
ble? Here's the bottom line. A per-
son gets just so much life to live.
During that time, the revelation of
the Lord comes. A person chooses
whether to accept the honor ... or to
continue to live without the Lord.
The ultimate penalty is that the
choice becomes permanent.
Many people ask the question:
how can a loving God send some-
one to hell? He really doesn't. God
reveals; by His own self-sacrifice
He has eliminated the barriers be-
tween Himself and sinful mankind.
He offers forgiveness. When a per-
son chooses not to have a relation-
ship with God, despite the sacrifice,
they are given what they've chosen:
an existence where they cannot ex-
perience the God they did not want.
It makes me sad to write these
words. Many of you have heard
from God. You have sensed His
presence and have known that He
desired to have a relationship with
you. Yet, you have chosen to ignore
the invitation; you have chosen not
to accept the honor of knowing the
Lord of the Universe. Why?

you matter

Recently while eating out, I overheard -L
two young women nearby lamenting the
hardships of being married, reciting quite .
an impressive list of their husband's
shortcomings. I couldn't help but grin .
over their mutual conclusion that men
are clueless.. .and knowing that if these
husbands were asked what would make
their wives happy, they probably would
agree with the clueless verdict!
Long ago, in a primitive culture, it was Heart
required that before they married, the
young men had to bargain with the girl's Matters
father for her. The fathers of the village By Angie Land
demanded payment for their daughters
generally in the form of cows. Three
cows could buy an above-average wife, and four or five
cows a very beautiful wife!
Johnny, the brightest, strongest, and most handsome
man in the village loved Sarita. Sarita most generously
could have been described as being plain. She was not
truly ugly, but neither attractive. She was shy and older
than most girls at the time of marriage.
The villagers' loved to gossip about the bargaining
price of a girl. Some said Johnny might offer two or three
cows. Others said Sarita's father might take one cow
since nobody was interested in her.
Johnny went to meet with Sarita's father and offered
ten cows for her. Everyone was astonished! That was the
highest price ever paid for a bride in their village! Soon,
Johnny herded 10 cows to his future father-in-law. The
wedding was held that same evening.
Time passed, Sarita changed. Her eyes dazzled, and
she moved and spoke with striking grace and poise. Peo-
ple who came to the village and had never seen Sarita be-
fore remarked that she was the region's most beautiful
woman.
Much later, someone asked Johnny why he paid such a
high price for her. Why offer 10 cows when he could
have had her as his wife for less? Did he make such an
offer to make her happy?
"Yes, I wanted her to be happy, but I wanted more than
that. The most important thing that changes a woman is
how she thinks about herself. Sarita believed that she was
worth nothing. Now she knows she is worth more than
any other woman in the village." Johnny concluded, "I
loved Sarita and no other woman, and I wanted to marry
her.. .but I also wanted a ten-cow wife."

Suwannee River Basin farm owners to be


honored for environmental stewardship


Nineteen agricultural
producers in the Suwannee
River Basin will receive
special recognition for their
outstanding natural re-
source management on
June 30. Each of the agri-
culturists will receive a
County Alliance for Re-
sponsible Environmental
Stewardship (CARES)
award during a dinner
meeting at the UF/IFAS
North Florida Research and
Education Center near Live
Oak.
CARES - the County Al-
liance for Responsible En-
vironmental Stewardship -
was founded by Florida
Farm Bureau in 2001 and
the Suwannee River Part-


nership to recognize supe-
rior natural resource con-
servation by agricultural
producers. The program
has now honored more than
450 agriculturists through-
out the state.
The fundamental compo-
nent of the program is the
voluntary action by farmers
and ranchers to imple-
ment state-of-the-art natur-
al resource management
systems on their properties.
The effectiveness of these
systems has been con-
firmed by outside experts.
According to scientific
evaluation, Best Manage-
ment Practices (BMPs)
adopted by CARES award
recipients and other farm


producers have substantial-
ly enhanced water quality
and conserved water in var-
ious areas of the state. The
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection has
determined, for example,
that BMP implementation
in the citrus ridge region of
south-central Florida re-
duced nitrogen levels by
nearly 33 percent in three
years. University of Flori-
da/Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences re-
searchers have found that
BMP systems in the Ever-
glades Agricultural Area
slashed phosphorous levels
up to 35 percent for a range
of crop production within
four years.



The biking

professor
Nearing the end of a
cross-country solo bike
trip, Cal-Maritime (Cali-
fornia State University
system) chemistry pro-
fessor Dr. Jim Wheeler
passed through Live Oak
recently for breakfast at
the Dixie Grill. A two part
trip, this leg of Wheeler's
journey began in Tucson,
Arizona on April 17. "I've
been telling my students
for years and years that
when I was more or less
retired, I'd ride across the
country," said the 66-
year-old professor.


According to Florida De-
partment of Agriculture
and Consumer Services
data, 90 percent of all dairy
