Hendry found not guilty in soccer brawl incident


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com
A former Suwannee High School student arrest-
ed on battery charges following a brawl that took
place during a high school soccer game earlier this
year was found not guilty by a jury last week, ac-
cording to Suwannee County court documents.
Jared Andrew Hendry, 18, was arrested Feb. 3
following a brawl at the conclusion of a soccer
game between Suwannee and Ocala's Trinity


Catholic Celtics.
Hendry was a senior goalkeeper for Suwannee
and was arrested on a felony battery charge.
After a dispute over a score by Trinity Catholic
during the game, tensions began to rise amongst
players in the final minutes, which ended in a loss
for Suwannee.
According to a Suwannee County Sheriff's re-
port, Hendry got into a altercation with one or
more of Trinity's players. Although restrained
twice by coaches and teammates, he broke free


and charged at a player from the opposing team.
A goalkeeper for the Celtics tackled Hendry
during the altercation. While on the ground,
Hendry struck the goalkeeper in the mouth, break-
ing his two front teeth in half.
The injured player was taken to his dentist in
Ocala, while Hendry was transported to a local
hospital to have his hand examined. He was later
booked into the Suwannee County Jail.
Hendry was found not guilty Thursday, court
documents confirmed.


LEGISLATION

Teachers

unions cry

foul over

3 percent

pay cut

State pension plan contribution
takes effect Friday
By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com
The Florida Education Association filed a
class-action lawsuit last week as a challenge to
a new law that takes effect Friday that will
force state and other public employees to chip
in to the state pension system.
The FEA claims last month's legislative de-
cision to require state employees to contribute
three percent of their annual salary to the state
retirement fund violates contractual and collec-
tive bargaining rights. State employees have
not been required to pay into the plan since leg-
islation that took place in the 1970s.
The local teachers union said while it's not
joining the lawsuit, it supports it fully.
"Absolutely, we would love to see this re-
solved in a manner to where teachers won't
have to pay the three percent towards their own
retirement," said United Teachers of Suwannee
County president Jackie Ford.
Ford said that teachers were told when hired
they would never have to contribute to their re-
tirement.
"We are disappointed, we are in essence tak-
ing a three percent pay cut to have to contribute

EXTENSION UPDATE


PulseNet at work to keep food safe


Mary Sowerby, UF R. :-i. .*,, Dairy
Extension
Does it seem like food recalls for
bacterial contaminations (Salmonel-
la, E. coli, etc.) have been on the
rise? Your perception is correct. Ac-
cording to a new study from Temple
University, the number of docu-
mented food-bore illness outbreaks
has increased by 28 percent since
1998.
Does this mean our food is less
safe to eat? "No," says Richard Ray-
mond, former undersecretary for
food safety at the US Department of
Agriculture, whose commentary in
the September 7, 2010 issue of
"Feed Stuffs" is the source of much
of the following information. He ar-
gues, "The reason we are seeing so
many more food borne illness out-
breaks, and that they are starting to
involve more states, is because of
PulseNet."
What is PulseNet?
Developed by the Center for Dis-
ease Control and Prevention after
the 1993 Jack-in-the-Box Es-
cherichia coli outbreak, PulseNet fo-
cuses on two objectives:
Developing uniform protocols for
pulse-field gel electrophoresis
(PFGE) testing which DNA "finger-
prints" many bacteria which cause
food borne illnesses, and
Developing a central repository
for PFGE patterns at the Center for
Disease Control for comparative
analysis.
By using PFGE testing, it is possi-
ble to identify bacterial strains (like
E. coli 0157)
that are exactly the same and,
therefore, most likely came from the


same source. This helps link what
used to be seemingly unrelated spo-
radic illnesses and identifies isolated
cases that are not linked.
Testing for PFGE is now being
done in all 50 states with results sent
to the Center for Disease Control.
Then a team looks for PFGE match-
es. When found, state and local pub-
lic health officials are alerted that
these cases are actually part of a
much wider multi-state outbreak.
Then a collaboration of state, and
sometimes even international, coop-
erating labs work to determine the
source.
PulseNet began in 1996, with
only 10 state public health labs par-
ticipating. With database expansion
and increased interstate cooperation,
there is better ability to identify mul-
ti-state outbreaks.
In the past only the sources of lo-
cal outbreaks (usually a common
dining spot) were generally deter-
mined and meats were usually the
culprit. With PulseNet, the list of
foods causing illnesses has in-
creased and lately fruit and veg-
etable produce have been deter-
mined a major source of food borne
illness.
So if it seems that there are more
food recalls because of food borne
disease-causing bacteria, on every-
thing from lettuce to apples to
peanut butter to eggs to meat, etc.,
you are right. Be thankful PulseNet
is working to determine the food
sources causing illnesses, albeit
sometimes slower than wished for,
as when guiltless parties like the
Florida tomato industry were pre-
liminarily blamed for a Salmonella

Those recalls, and the food safety

our food supply safer. So, be not

allegiance...

By Jim Holmes
By now, I suspect you have read, heard or
seen something about the NBC faux pas where
the network deleted the words "under God"
from the Pledge of Allegiance. But just in case
you have been cave spelunking nonstop for the
past couple of weeks, I'll explain that the dele-
tions were in a couple of spots aired during the
broadcaster's recent US Open coverage.
It's easy to find critics suggesting something
intentionally unpatriotic about the NBC dele-
tions... particularly since they view the net-
work's cable news operation as a bastion for
anti-American liberalism. I have my doubts.
After all, "indivisible" and "one nation" were
also left out of one or the other of the two spots.
As an experienced tape editor, I suspect the ed-
its were primarily about timing.
At any rate, with Independence Day just
around the comer, I thought you might be inter-
ested in a little bit of our Pledge's history. It
was written in the late 19th Century by a Bap-
tist minister named Francis Bellamy. His stated
intent was to create a public declaration that
would promote patriotism, while guarding
against radicalism and subversion. Remember,
in the late 1800s, memories of the American
Civil War were still fresh in the minds of many.
It can be argued however, the pledge first ap-
peared in print more for commercial than patri-
otic reasons. Marketing whiz James Upham in-
cluded it in his September 8, 1892 issue of a
youth magazine he published to be read in the
classroom. Meanwhile, he also campaigned to
have officials require that the pledge be recited
before a US flag in schools across the nation.
And by the way, if you needed more magazines
for your kids to use---or flags for them to
salute---well, Upham had plenty to sell.
As for the original Bellamy pledge? It went
like this; "I pledge allegiance to my flag and the
republic for which it stands; one nation indivis-
ible, with liberty and justice for all." That was
it! By the way, there was also a so-called Bel-
lamy Salute to go with the recitation. Individu-
als extended their right arm out and slightly el-
evated. The hand's palm was down and fingers
extended. Not surprisingly, that salute was re-
placed with the right hand over the heart short-
ly after the US went to war with the Nazis.
Another interesting fact about the early
pledge is that Bellamy initially wanted it to in-
clude the words "equality" and "fraternity." He
dropped the idea fearing many education lead-
ers of the day would oppose their use out of
fear their inclusion would promote the idea of
equality for both women and blacks. Heavens
to Betsy!!!
In one form or another, the pledge was
around for decades before finally being elevat-
ed to its current lofty status. Congress official-
ly adopted its use in June, 1942. In 1948, Louis
Bowman, a leader in the Sons of the American
Revolution, launched an effort to have the
words "under God" added. He argued, if the
phrase was important enough for Lincoln to
spontaneously insert in his Gettysburg Address;
it warranted being a part of our Pledge. While
not everyone agrees those were Lincoln's exact
words, others joined the campaign and the
change became law in 1954. The timing
seemed particularly fitting to many, who at the
time feared a government take-over from with-
in by godless Communists.
Ironically, while the Pledge is now as Ameri-
can as---well, apple pie---I doubt it could be
adopted in the bitterly partisan political atmos-
phere of today. After all, anything Bellamy pro-
posed would be viewed with suspicion by
some. You see, this New York preacher was
also an ardent Christian Socialist.

Ignorance, stupid

By Walter E. Williams
Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., re-
ferring to his race and the Consti- '
tution on John Stossel's recent i
show "The State Against Blacks,"
said, "I wasn't even considered
three-fifths of a guy." The Rev. Al
Sharpton, debating on Sean Hanni-
ty's show, said, "Any black, at any
age at any stage, was three-fifths
of a human." Even eminent histori- BY WALTI
an John Hope Franklin charged the
Founders with "degrading the human spirit by equating five
black men with three white men." Statements such as those
either represent ignorance or are part of the leftist agenda
to demean the founding principles of our nation by por-
traying the nation's Founders as racists. Let's look at the
origin of the three-fifths clause.
Northern delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Conven-
tion and those opposed to slavery wished to count only free
people of each state for the purpose of representation in the
House of Representatives and the Electoral College. South-
erners wanted to count slaves just as any other person. By
counting slaves, who didn't have a right to vote, slave states
would have had greater representation in the House and the
Electoral College. If slaveholding states could not have
counted slaves, the Constitution would not have been rati-
fied and there would not be a union. The compromise was
for slaves to be counted as three-fifths of a person in de-
ciding representation in the House and Electoral College.
The compromise reduced the power of slave states relative
to the South's original proposal but increased it over the
North's original proposal.
My questions for those who condemn the three-fifths
compromise are: Would blacks have been better off if
slaves had been counted as a whole person? Should the
North not have compromised at all and a union not have
come into being? Would Rangel and Sharpton have agreed
with Southerners at the Constitutional Convention, who ar-
gued slaves should "stand on an equality with whites" in
determining congressional representation and Electoral
College votes? Abolitionist Frederick Douglass understood
the compromise, saying that the three-fifths clause was "a
downright disability laid upon the slaveholding states" that
deprived them of "two-fifths of their natural basis of repre-

sentation."
Patrick Henry acknowledged
reality, saying, "As much as I de-
plore slavery, I see that prudence
forbids its abolition." With the
union created, Congress at least
had the power to abolish slave
trade in 1808. James Wilson be-
lieved the anti-slave-trade clause
laid "the foundation for banishing
slavery out of this country."


Other Founders condemned
slavery. George Washington said, "There is not a man liv-
ing who wishes more sincerely than I do to see a plan
adopted for the abolition of it." John Adams: "Every mea-
sure of prudence ... ought to be assumed for the eventual to-
tal extirpation of slavery from the United States. ... I have,
throughout my whole life, held the practice of slavery in ...
abhorrence." James Madison: "We have seen the mere dis-
tinction of color made in the most enlightened period of
time, a ground of the most oppressive dominion ever exer-
cised by man over man." James Otis said, "The colonists
are by the law of nature freeborn, as indeed all men are,
white or black." Benjamin Franklin: "Slavery is ... an atro-
cious debasement of human nature." Franklin, after visiting
a black school, also said, "I ... have conceived a higher
opinion of the natural capacities of the black race than I had
ever before entertained." Alexander Hamilton's judgment
was the same: "Their natural faculties are probably as good
as ours." John Jay wrote: "It is much to be wished that slav-
ery may be abolished. The honour of the States, as well as
justice and humanity, in my opinion, loudly call upon them
to emancipate these unhappy people. To contend for our
own liberty, and to deny that blessing to others, involves an
inconsistency not to be excused."
Here's my hypothesis about people who use slavery to
trash the Founders: They have contempt for our constitu-
tional guarantees of liberty. Slavery is merely a convenient
moral posturing tool as they try to reduce respect for our
Constitution.

Congratulations
to Jeff Waters in
his promotion to
editor of the
Suwannee Democ-
rat and its affiliate i
newspapers. I look
forward to a con-
tinuing relationship
with the Democrat
and with Jeff.
If there is one thing I can say about getting
ready for this family reunion, my house is clean-
er than it's ever been! With over a dozen people
staying here with me from June 24 through the
30th, it was necessary to clean out closets,
dressers, every nook and cranny, and my
screened area/carport! Whew, has this been a
hectic couple of months! I really thought I had
gotten rid of all the "stuff" last year at the last
flea market in Lake City, but you'd never know
it!! At least it's finally done, and the only thing
left to do is give the yard one final mowing.
And as hot as it's been, I was concerned about
how this heat was going to affect everyone, but
last night and this morning I received e-mails
say, "Don't sweat it, Auntie. Pun intended! With
the miserable cold weather we've had this past
winter, we are looking forward to the heat, no
matter how high. Just show us the way to the
river, and we'll be fine!!" That's a consolation,
for sure! And this is from the teenagers and my
nieces, mostly. I'll just have to make sure they
drink plenty of water and have lots of sunblock
on hand, and keep an eye that they don't overdo
while experiencing the outdoors.
All my attempts to work outside have been
cut short by 11 a.m. because of not only the heat
index, but by the humidity. I feel as if I'd been
working in a furnace, so the work has been very
slow. On the other hand, I've got a pretty good
tan to show off when my family gets here! I've
been one of those folks praying for rain, only
right now I'm praying the expected rain in the
next couple of days holds off until next week so
we can have fun and enjoy the outdoors togeth-
er.
I've had one phone call from a friend about
another friend suffering from heat stroke last
week after working outside most of one
day. Even with protection, long sleeves, jeans
and a hat, it proved to be too much, and the in-
dividual was taken to the emergency room. If
you want to work outside, please take every pre-
caution to do it early in the morning and late af-
ternoon and early evening when the sun has
moved away enough that you're not setting
yourself up for serious problems. Drinking plen-
ty of water isn't enough, you need to get out of
the sun and the heat! Believe me, what ever you
think MUST be done, can wait and be strung
over a few days. In the temperatures we've been
experiencing this past week, up in the very high
90s and low 100s you dehydrate so quickly you
don't realize what's happening until you get
dizzy and sick. Please take care!
My little tiger-striped kitten, the one dumped
at my mailbox, is doing extremely well, and is
ready for a good "forever" home. If you are
looking for a kitten to adopt, please give me a
call. And the last one that was brought to me,
only about two weeks old, is not off bottle-feed-
ing and doing really well. He's house-broken
himself, eats like one of the "big kitties", loves
to be held, and will be ready to go to a good
home in another two weeks. Folks, please, if
you have unwanted cats and/or their litters, DO
NOT JUST DUMP THEM OFF SOMEWHERE
EXPECTING SOMEONE WILL TAKE THEM
IN! If things had not worked out as well as they
did, Tiger would have been run over by my
mailman. Call the county animal control,
please! And (June 21) I met one of the animal
control officers in Walmart with a puppy he res-
cued from the back of a pick-up truck left there
in this high heat with no protection and no wa-
ter. Don't take your pet with you if you know

Morris instructed the kids how to pre-
pare their budget by figuring out in- "
come versus expenses. They were then ',.
grouped into threes to brainstorm and .-
come up with a workable budget for'
their party.
The teens in attendance were a group
from 21st Century Community Learn-

under a five-year grant. Julie Dees, a
Culinary Arts Instructor at BHS is their
instructor for the summer. Most of the
teens are incoming 6th graders, but oth-
ers ranged in age group up to 11th
grade.
At the end of July all the teens in the
group will be going on an outing to St.
Augustine for an educational and fun
day.
The next You Are Here Teens! pro-
gram is today, where the kids will learn .
about portion control. For more infor-

Hundreds bid killed firefighter's farewell


Staff
The funerals for two
Florida Division of
Forestry rangers who
were killed battling the
Blue Ribbon fire in
Hamilton County Mon-
day, June 20, were held
Friday and Saturday at
Christ Central Ministries
in Columbia County.
Hundreds of mourners,
which included various
law enforcement, fire-
fighting and emergecny
personnel from around the
state, were present for the
funerals of Joshua Burch,
31, held Friday, and Brett
Fulton, 52, held Saturday.
The two were killed
when one of four tractors


plowing fire containment
lines got stuck on a stump
around 4:45 p.m. June 20.
Hamilton County Sheriff
Harrell Reid said another
tractor came to help, but
the flames shifted, trap-
ping Burch and Fulton.
Two other rangers with the
Live Oak Forestry Sta-
tion, Robert Marvin of
Jasper and Stephen Car-
penter of Madison were
injured when they at-
tempted to rescue the two
men. Both were taken to
area hospitals, treated for
smoke-related injuries and
released.
Burch and Fulton lived
in Columbia County and
worked with the Suwan-


Emergency officials load the casket of Joshua Burch into a wai


The families of Brett Fulton and Josh
Burch would like to thank the community
for their kind thoughts and prayers during
this time of great loss in our lives. The
loving words and generous donations pro-
vided to our families have shown us all
how deeply loved and respected our sons,
husbands and fathers were in this commu-


nity. Your support is appreciated more
than we can possibly express at this time
of grief.
Memorial accounts have been set up at
Sun State Federal Credit Union for both
Brett and Josh. Cash Donations can be ac-
cepted at any branch location for the Brett
Fulton Family or the Josh Burch Family.

The city of Live Oak helps a town in need


Just days after the EF5
tornado devastated the
small town of Hackleburg,
Alabama, the city of Live
Oak started organizing a
relief effort.
That relief effort was
headed by the city of Live
Oak Fire Department.


LOFD organized numerous
fundraisers, food drives
and clothing donations.
With the Live Oak Police
Department, local church-
es, organizations, business-
es and caring citizens, there
was an enormous amount
of donations taken in, in-


cluding $4,500 in cash,
which was used to pur-
chase essential items for
the town's people. So much
in fact, U-Haul donated a
26 foot box truck to haul
everything. On June 13,
two members from the
LOFD drove the U-Haul


475 miles to Hackleburg.
The truck was unloaded at
the town's distribution cen-
ter. The town's people said
Live Oak's donation was
one of the biggest they had
received yet. The relief ef-
fort was such a huge suc-
cess due to the caring peo-
ple of Suwannee County. A
special thank you goes out
to everyone for supporting
fellow Americans.
Special thanks to:
Woman's Club of Live
Oak, Publix, Winn-Dixie,
Lowe's, U-Haul and to all
those who wished to stay
anonymous.


Man nabbed after

marijuana grow

house discovered

36 pot plants confiscated

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnew.com

A Live Oak man was arrested recent-
ly after local authorities discovered a
grow house containing more than two
dozen cannabis plants, reports show.
The residence of Curtis L. Duggan,
53, at 9922 132nd Street, was searched
June 22 by the Suwannee County Sher- Curtis Duggan
iff's Office who discovered the plants
growing in separate containers inside
and outside the premises, according to jail reports. A total
of 36 plants were recovered, in addition to plastic bags
containing loose cannabis plant material. The grow oper-
ation was also equipped with five fluorescent lights, liq-
uid fertilizer, weighing scales and cannabis drying lines.
Duggan was also found to be in possession of drug
paraphernalia, reports show. He was arrested and trans-
ported to the Suwannee County Jail. Duggan faces
charges of possession of a grow house with more than 25
cannabis plants, manufacture of cannabis, possession of
more that 20 grams of cannabis and possession of drug
paraphernalia.


NOTICE
Effective July 1, 2011, the Suwannee County
Health Department Branford clinic will be closing.
All services will continue at 915 Nobles Ferry Road
in Live Oak. Appointments can be made at the Live
Oak office by calling 386-362-2708. Closure of the
Branford clinic is due to state budget cuts and is nec-
essary so that the Suwannee County Health Depart-
ment can prioritize limited resources.

Rally for supposed whistleblower

draws small crowd

versation with Ryan Tyson,
former chief of staff for
Florida Senator Charlie
Dean, R-Inverness. Burton
said the recorded conver-
sation contained state-
ments from Ryan impli-
cating state officials in
what Burton said were il-
legal activities. Burton
published a video con-
taining the conversation
on YouTube, which was


later removed from the
website.
Burton, who stated he is
a deadhead logger, had
told the Suwannee Demo-
crat in January that he
happened upon illegal ac-
tivities by the Florida De-
partment of Environmen-
tal Protection, specifically
the dumping of toxic
waste into protected ar-
eas.
"I just want everyone
held accountable just like


we were when we started
this," said Burton.
Hamilton County resi-
dent Bill Ryan is a sup-
porter of Burton.
"You don't want to blow
the whistle, but you do
want to blow the whistle.
So what happens when
you do blow the whistle?
The example ... " Ryan
said motioning to Burton.
Due to pending prose-
cution on the case, Jarvis
refrained from comment.


Woman pulls gun on abusive man

show.
Jesse James Rex, 28,
homeless, arrived at the
residence of an elderly
woman last Wednesday
asking for a place to stay,
according to jail docu-
ments. The defendant's re-
lationship with the woman
is unclear. He was allowed
to sleep on the couch, but
later asked to leave when


he started drinking.
Rex left, but returned on
Saturday when reports
show an altercation oc-
curred. During the alterca-
tion, Rex stated in a threat-
ening tone that "nobody
would be here come Mon-
day." After he was asked to
leave, Rex pushed the
woman who told authori-
ties she was in fear for her
life. She pulled a gun on
him, which he grabbed and


tossed aside. Rex then
pinned the woman against
a wall and pushed her face
onto a wall of the home.
Others confirmed the
woman's story upon investi-
gation according to reports.
Rex was transported to
the Suwannee County Jail
where he faces charges of
battery (domestic violence)
and battery on a person 65
or older (domestic vio-
lence).

Teachers unions cry foul over 3 percent pay cut


Continued From Page 1A

to our retirement," she said.
State workers view the
new legislation as govern-
ment going back on its
word, said Suwannee
School Board member Jer-
ry Taylor.
"I understand balancing
the budget, but balancing
the budget on the backs of
teachers, policemen and
firefighters isn't right,"
Taylor said.
Many who hold these
jobs have not had raises in
years and see the contribu-
tion rather as a tax or pay
cut. This was evident last
week when the Florida Po-
lice Benevolent Association
filed a motion to join the
suit by Florida's teachers.
Eleven other plaintiffs have
also been named.
Live Oak Police Chief
Buddy Williams said it's
mostly correctional officers
from the PBA who have


joined together in the law-
suit, and said he doesn't
mind chipping in.
"For me personally, I
don't mind contributing to
my pension plan," he said.
Williams was at a confer-
ence Tuesday morning to
learn more on the matter.
City of Live Oak Fi-
nance Director Jan
Parkhurst said those who
rely on a state pension will
actually see less going into
their accounts. She said
last year the employer
contribution rate for regu-
lar employees was 10.7
percent. The employee
will now only receive 7.91
percent - 4.91 percent
from the employer and 3
percent being added by the
employee. For special risk
employees - firefighters,
police - last year's contri-
bution rate was 23.25 per-
cent by the employer. Now,
the employee will receive
17.10 percent contribution


with the employer con-
tributing 14.10 percent.
The FEA called the mea-
sure an "unfair" move by
the Legislature to use teach-
ers, law enforcement offi-
cers, firefighters and others
to shore up a hole in the
state budget.
But with local law en-
forcement and schools
straining under years of
budget cuts, officials say


this is just another hit.
"It's essentially a tax
that's being imposed on a
certain group of people,
many who haven't had a
raise for years," said Taylor.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott
is standing behind GOP leg-
islative leaders, however.
According to Scott, asking
state employees to pay a
"small percentage" into
their pensions is common


sense.
"Floridians who don't
work in government are re-
quired to pay into their own
retirement. This is about
fairness for those who don't
have government jobs.
Plus, we are ensuring a pen-
sion will be there for state
employees when they re-
tire," Scott said.
Scott has said the three
percent contribution will


save the state $769 million
annually.
FEA is expected to fur-
ther challenge other mea-
sures passed by the state
Legislature, such as SB
736, which forces teachers
pay to be determined large-
ly by their students perfor-
mance on standardized
tests.
"Promises are hard to
back out on," Taylor said.


Savannah youth group

helps restore local home


Continued From Page 1A

but I didn't know all they
were going to be doing."
This is Savannah Inde-
pendent Presbyterian
Church's second year of
helping a family in Live
Oak by way of fixing their
home. The church picked
Live Oak last year and will
continue to help as long as
they can. The church's
youth group and others all
pitch in. This year, 50 kids,
ranging from 13 and up,
and 40 adults partnered
with Live Oak's Communi-
ty Presbyterian Church and
Suwannee County Love
INC (In the Name of
Christ) to fix up the home.
They started Thursday and
completely made over the
home by Saturday, which
was no easy task, seeing
how the home had been


stripped down to the studs.
"We're insulating in and
out, recoating the roof on
the house, adding vinyl sid-
ing, redoing the interior
walls, new kitchen, bath-
rooms and windows," said
IPC's Associate Pastor
Brad Waller.
And if that's not enough,
the group is also repairing
the front and back porch.
Waller said due to the
condition of the home, it
needed a refrigerator, a
range and was in desperate
need of an electrician.
Owens, who works at
Walgreen's in Live Oak,
said the home has been in
her family for more than
100 years.
Last year, IPC, along
with Live Oak's Communi-
ty Presbyterian Church and
Love INC, helped repair
two homes in Live Oak.

LIVE OAK-Twenty-nine teams began their road to
the state tournament this past weekend, competing in
the Florida Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken District 6 All-Star
baseball tournaments June 23-26 at the First Federal
Sportsplex.
The double elimination tournaments featured
teams from Fort White, Hamilton County, Jefferson
County, Lafayette, Lake City, Madison County, Tay-
lor County, Suwannee County, Suwannee Valley
League (Trenton), Union County and Wakulla Coun-
ty.
Teams representing the ages of 9, 10-under, 11, 12-
under and 15-under competed with the top teams
from each age group advancing to their respective
state tournaments.
State tournaments will be held in Lake City for 9-
year-olds, Jasper for 10-year-olds, Lake City for 11-
year-olds, Live Oak for 12-year-olds (60 and 70 foot
bases) and 15-year-olds.
Suwannee Valley swept Wakulla 17-9 and 20-1 in


on


up


two games to win the 9-under title to qualify for the
state tournament.
Wakulla breezed its way through the 10-under
tournament 4-0 including a 12-2 win over Madison
in the final to claim the district title and state berth.
Joining Wakulla at state will be Madison and host
Hamilton County.
Lake City dropped a close 5-4 decision in the best
of three series with Wakulla, but rebounded to win
the last two games 12-7 and 12-5 to win the district
title. Both teams will move on the state tournament
in Lake City.
Madison rolled through the 12-under tournament
undefeated with a 5-0 record, including a 14-9 win
over Lafayette in the final to claim the district title.
Madison, Lafayette and host Suwannee move on the
state tournament.
Defending district champion, Fort White reclaimed
its title with a 8-3 win over Suwannee in the 15-un-
der tournament. Suwannee rebounded from a second
round loss to Fort White to win three in a row to get
to the final game. Both teams move on the state tour-
nament, which will be held at Suwannee High.

Storm experts said an ob-
vious partial answer lies in
the ferocity of Joplin's EF-5
category tornado, with
winds ranging beyond 200
mph at its vortex.
"There's not much you
can do," said Bill Davis,
chief meteorologist for the
National Weather Service in
nearby Springfield, Mo.
Maybe so, but a disaster
research team from Iowa
State University that in-
spected the tornado ruins
determined many of the
homes where people took
shelter were not built to
handle even a low-velocity
tornado. And only a handful
had basements, storm cel-
lars or safe rooms.
Eight-thousand housing
units and 500 businesses
were destroyed in the torna-
do. Damage has been esti-
mated at $3 billion.
A review of 106 of the
tornado deaths by the Joplin
Globe determined more
than half of the people died
where they lived -- in
homes, apartment buildings
and nursing homes. Thir-
teen people died at the
Greenbrier Nursing Home
alone.

Most Joplin tornado deaths


occurred where victims lived


Continued From Page 1

Thirty-two percent were
killed in commercial build-
ings, churches and St.
John's Medical Center Hos-
pital. The others died in ve-
hicles or outdoors.
Joplin's emergency man-
agement system sounded
the first siren warning of
the tornado a half-hour be-
fore it struck at 5:33 p.m.
Another was sounded 10
minutes later. Television


and radio stations also
warned of the tornado well
in advance.
But Joplin has few public
shelters, and less than 20
percent of the homes fea-
ture basements or storm
cellars, the safest place to
take refuge during a torna-
do. Very few homes have
reinforced-wall safe rooms.
The Iowa State team
found no homes with so-
called hurricance straps

could reduce the spread of
total destruction to closer
to the center (of the torna-
do)," said Bill Gallus, a
meterology professor at
Iowa State and a member
of the team.
So far there has been no
review of building inspec-
tions and codes to deter-
mine if construction in the
tornado zone complied
with existing regulations.
But the city council has
initiated plans to strength-
en building codes on new
home construction to re-
quire hurricane straps and
extra bolts to tie walls to
their foundations.
Mayor Mike Woolston
said it would be impracti-
cal for the city to mandate
new homes contain base-
ments or storm cellars be-
cause of the high water
table and rocky soil of
Joplin. He said home own-
ers might well elect to do
that on their own.
But he said hurricance
straps add only about $600
to the cost of building a
home, and "the strapping
will help hold the roofs on,
which in turn helps hold
the walls up."
Ernst Kiesling, execu-
tive director of the Nation-
al Storm Shelter Associa-
tion, recommended Joplin
also require storm shelters
for apartment complexes,
nursing homes and other
multi-people dwellings.
Kiesling said they need
not be expensive under-
ground shelters. He said
ground-level shelters can
provide safe haven if they
are reinforced with con-
crete or steel.
Still, Weather Service
meteorologist Davis said
there will be death and de-
struction whenever a tor-
nado of 200 mph hits an
urban area.
"There's nothing 100
percent," said Davis.
"Some people will be in
the wrong place and still
not be injured, and other
places, people will take the
time to be there and not
survive."

Many embrace the spring thanks
to its warm weather and budding
flowers and trees. Those with
seasonal allergies, however, may
not look so favorably on the new
season.
According to the Asthma and
Allergy Foundation, about 50
million Americans experience
spring allergies. Some may have
allergies each and every year.
Others may find their allergies are
newly discovered. The most
common allergy triggers in spring
include trees, grasses and weeds.
T H Allergies can evoke a number of
symptoms:
* itchy eyes
* sneezing
* congestion
* headaches
* coughing
* runny nose
* sore throat
* shortness of breath
* hives
Several of the symptoms of
allergies mimic those of the
common cold, and allergies are
often mistaken for late winter
colds. But as time spent outdoors
with flowering plants triggers
symptoms or inhalation of dust
S from spring cleaning induces an
attack, the allergy culprit may
become more apparent.
i a Pollen is one of the main
contributors to allergies in the
spring. For many people, pollen is
seen as an outside invader to the
body and its immune system.
When pollen is inhaled or comes in
contact with the eyes, the immune
al system triggers a response to get
ment rid of the foreign substance.
Excess mucous buildup and tears
may be generated to wash out the

pollen. What all of this fluid can
mean is sinus pressure, runny nose,
watery eyes, and eventually cough
or congestion from fluids running
down the breathing passages and
into the lungs.
As the body prepares to fend off
pollen invaders, other symptoms
may occur. Fatigue, aches and
pains and other flu-like symptoms
may be present. While battling
pollen, the immune system is in
full swing and may not be able to
fully devote attention to other
invaders, like bacteria and viruses.
A person with allergies might be
more susceptible to sickness.
There really are no cures for
common allergies, only methods to
manage the symptoms. Individuals
with strong allergies to pollen
should avoid spending a lot of time
outside when pollen counts are
especially high or the wind is
blowing pollen around. Pollen
predictions can be obtained
through the local weather report or
doing a little investigating online.
Here are some other steps to limit
troublesome springtime allergies.
* Take a shower to wash off
pollen from hair and skin after
coming indoors.
* Launder clothes regularly.
* Keep windows and doors
closed on high pollen days.
* Use a HEPA air filter inside of
the home.
* Do not air-dry clothes, linens
or other items outdoors on a
clothesline.
* Consider using a saline
irrigation spray to improve
breathing and cleanse the nasal
passages of pollen.
* Talk with a doctor about the
best OTC products available for
allergy symptoms. If those are
ineffective, prescription
medications may work.
* Some people find relief from
alternative health treatments, such
as acupuncture or ear candling.
Being proactive about seasonal
allergies can mean getting relief
earlier or even preventing serious
complications in the spring.

Dear Classified Guys,
I am the daughter of two certified
pack rats and have happily continued
the family tradition by becoming a
queen pack rat myself. I throw nothing
away and my apartment looks like it.
This wasn't a problem until I broke my
leg waterskiing. Now, with my leg in a
cast, I trip over all the clutter on my
way to the bathroom. However, I
found an ad in the classified for a
"chaos buster". That might be what I
need, someone to help me organize.
But will they make me throw things
out? Will I have to organize
myself or will they do it for
me? If they do it, how will I
ever find anything again? .'
Please offer some insight for
this limping clutter bug.
Cash: Well, it sounds like your water-
skiing accident has put you in the middle
of a big mess...your house. A "chaos
buster" might be exactly what you need.
Carry: It's amazing how much we can
collect. I throw things out all the time,
but somehow, my attic keeps collecting
things. Fortunately, you're on the right
track. If you have trouble cleaning your
clutter, it's always a good idea to get help.
Cash: Professional organizers offer a
variety of services. Some will clean out


for you while others can help you create
an organizational system. The later may
be your best option since it helps create a
long-term solution to your clutter.
Carry: You should expect a good
"chaos buster" to sit down with you in
the beginning and discuss the goals
before the cleaning. For example, you
may not need to alphabetize your food
pantry, but it may be a good idea to
throw out the two-year collection of
magazines you've been saving, each for
that one good article.
Cash: You'll find that the hardest part
is throwing away items you have an
emotional attachment to, but no longer
need or use. Parting with those 20-year-


V


W 06/26/11
@The Classified Guys�
old prom shoes can be a troublesome
experience.
Carry: And who knows what else
may lurk in your closets. I have a friend
who still has her girl scout uniform from
30 years ago.
Cash: Your "chaos buster" shouldn't
dispose of anything you don't want them
to, but keep an open mind as you work
with them. Be sure that the items you
keep are truly important to you or you'll
need in the near future. Otherwise with
your broken leg, you could still be trip-
ping your way to the bathroom.
Carry: And next time, if you want to
avoid cleaning altogether, consider
investing in waterskiing lessons.

Cleaned Out
To those who collect stuff around
the house, cleaning out can be emo-
tionally overwhelming. So if you
want the process to be a little easier,
try these techniques to get started.
First, avoid cleaning the entire house
all at once. Pick one room to work on
each week. And second, don't go at it
alone. Invite a friend over who can
assist you with the emotional deci-
sions on what to throw out.
Trash to Treasure
Trash to one person can be a treas-
ure to another. So if you're having
trouble with something because you
think it is still useful, consider giving
it away to someone who needs it.
After all, that mint condition baby
stroller or the brand new sports jacket
that no longer fits can be appreciated
by someone else. Organizations such
as The Salvation Army or Goodwill
Industries can put that extra stuff in
the hands of those who can use it.
And get a receipt when you drop it off.
Donated items can also be a tax
deduction.

Clever Kid
Since only my son and I live in our
house, I often ask him to help out.
However, being a teenager, he looks
for every shortcut to get the job done
quickly.
After the last holiday, I asked him if
he would make room in the garage for
our decorations. I knew it would be a
task since we store practically every-
thing in there from floor to ceiling. He
mumbled a lot, but eventually made
his way to the garage.
Within minutes, he was back inside
plopped in front of the TV "I thought
I asked you to make room in the
garage," I quickly scolded.
"I did," he replied. "I moved you car
into the driveway."
(Thanks to Chrissy H)

T he Fourth of July calls for a care-
free party, with good friends, fab
food, fun and fireworks a real
star-studded holiday celebration.
The entertaining experts from Wilton

the occasion, beginning with the
decorations. Festive stars and stripes napkin rings in red, white

American favorite meal of grilled burgers and corn on the cob,
appropriately topped with a star-shaped pat of butter.

your choice are a cut above ice cream truck offerings. The new ice
cream sandwich pan from Wilton ensures perfectly shaped cookies
for every treat. Give them the flair of the Fourth by rolling the
edges in patriotic sprinkles and sugars. Or, dip part of the sandwich
into melted candy melts and decorate with sprinkles for a fun and
festive finish.
Even beverages can boast the star treatment. 'r -i ip'li ice

The city of Gainesville's "Free Fridays" Concert


Series present an All-American Song Fest on July 1


The Department of Parks, Recreation
and Cultural Affairs will celebrate Amer-
ica's birthday at the Bo Diddley Commu-
nity Plaza with a reprise of its annual All
American Song Fest on Friday, July 1.
The concert will kick off the Fourth of
July weekend by taking the audience on
a musical tour of American history and
culture. According to Ron Thomas, con-
cert organizer and Impostors (Beatles
tribute band) member, "I call the concert
not 'About America,' but 'Americana - a
history of American music.' The last cou-
ple of times I have organized a July
Fourth show, we have done songs about
America, about places in America or
about themes in American history such
as our various wars, the Labor move-
ment, Civil Rights movement and so
forth. This time I wanted to try some-

can music. I hope to educate as well as
entertain with this approach. We're trac-

America; the English/Irish/Scottish folk
music influence and the
African/Caribbean influence. The first set
will be old-time/hillbilly/country/blue-

second set will be popular/Tin Pan Al-

Joining Thomas on stage will be popu-

Impostors; Cathy Dewitt of the bands
Moondancer and Patchwork; David Cook

A former inner-city kid who grew up to
be an acclaimed field biologist and college
dean is being honored by the American So-
ciety of Naturalists (ASN).
Joseph Travis, dean of the College of
Arts and Sciences at Florida State Univer-
sity and a distinguished researcher in the
field of ecological genetics, has won the
2011 E.O. Wilson Naturalist Award. Pre-
sented at the annual meeting of the ASN in
June, the award "is given to an active in-
vestigator in mid-career who has made sig-
nificant contributions to the knowledge of
a particular ecosystem or group of organ-
isms," according to the ASN.
E.O. Wilson, professor emeritus at Har-
vard University, is one of the most revered
biologists on the planet and a gifted com-
municator of science who twice won the
Pulitzer Prize for books in the "general
nonfiction" category. The ASN award hon-
ors someone who embodies Wilson's
ideals and whose research illuminates the
natural world.
"The committee that selected Joseph
Travis for the E.O. Wilson Naturalist
Award chose wisely," said Wilson himself.
"Dean Travis ranks very high as a natural-
ist, biologist and ecologist."
"To be thought of as embodying what Ed
Wilson stands for as a naturalist/scientist is
as good a tribute as I will ever receive,"
Travis said. "It's especially meaningful to
me because Ed is from the Gulf Coast,
loves this area, and has always encouraged
me to stay the course as a real naturalist."
Travis, whose methods combine field-
work, laboratory experiments and statisti-
cal analysis, studies how plants and ani-
mals adapt to their environment. His early
work involved populations of tadpoles and
looked at how environmental factors af-
fected larval periods and growth size. His
recent work, involving multiple popula-
tions of the same species of fish on the is-
land of Trinidad, has not only shown how
environmental factors affect the evolution
of the fish but also how the fish in turn pro-
duce changes in the environment.
"He has done landmark empirical re-
search on natural systems," the award cita-
tion said of Travis. "His greatest strengths
are to combine well-informed natural his-
tory with superior experimental designs
and statistical analyses."
Evolutionary biologist David Reznick
agrees. A previous E.O. Wilson award win-
ner, Reznick is collaborating with Travis
on the ongoing project in Trinidad. The
University of California-Riverside re-
searcher calls Travis a "supreme statisti-
cian."


Free Fridays is presented by the City
of Gainesville Department of Parks,
Recreation and Cultural Affairs. The Cul-
tural Affairs Division is the designated
local arts agency for Gainesville and
Alachua County. Its mission is to pro-
mote cultural activity and encourage
community based cultural resources.

town Plaza Free Fridays, or to schedule
an interview, please contact David Bal-
lard at 352-393-8746.


"Joe excels in integrating complex theo-
ry with natural history," Reznick said. "I
refer to Joe as the oracle in his role in our
Trinidad project because he is the only per-
son who is well grounded in every aspect
of the work, be it ecosystems ecology, evo-
lutionary biology, high-brow theory, or ex-
perimental design and data analysis. He is
the glue that holds this far-ranging project
together."
A member of the Florida State Universi-
ty faculty for 31 years, Travis has pub-
lished actively throughout his career. He
has written or co-written more than 100 ar-
ticles in scientific journals, and in 2009,
Harvard University Press published "Evo-
lution: The First Four Billion Years," a
nearly thousand-page book he co-wrote
and co-edited with philosopher Michael
Ruse, the Lucyle T. Werkmeister Professor
at FSU.
In addition, he has served on the editori-
al boards of the Journal of Evolutionary
Biology, Oecologia, the Annual Review of
Ecology and Systematics, and The Ameri-
can Naturalist. Travis was editor-in-chief
of The American Naturalist from 1998 to
2002 and served as vice president of the
ASN in 1994 and as president in 2005.
Travis has served the society and its
publication "with great distinction over the
years," said Mark McPeek, current editor-
in-chief of The American Naturalist. "All
other editors-in-chief will be measured
against his stellar performance at the helm
of the journal."
Besides filling leadership roles in the
ASN and on various scientific journals,
Travis served in 2010 as president of the
American Institute of Biological Sciences,
an umbrella organization of various biolo-
gy groups with a combined membership of
more than 250,000 scientists nationwide.
In 1991, Travis was named a Fellow in
the American Association for the Advance-
ment of Science. He also holds the title of
Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor
- the highest honor bestowed by the FSU
faculty on one of its own.
Travis earned a bachelor's degree in bi-
ology from the University of Pennsylvania
and a doctorate in zoology from Duke Uni-
versity. He held a postdoctoral position in
biology at the University of Virginia.

coming video interview, visit the Florida
State University news site.

Science website to learn more about
Travis' laboratory and field research.
