Epic drought raises concerns
By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com
An erstwhile thriving tourist destination built on the
banks of its White Sulphur Spring, residents of the now-
quiet town of White Springs in Hamilton County say
their life-source is drying up. With the upper Suwannee
experiencing record lows during this year's epic drought
season, and some area springs remaining dry year-round,
many wonder, "Will my children's children know this
river as I did?"
"As our springs, streams and rivers, including the
Suwannee River, dry up, so does our future," said Dr.
Helen Miller, mayor of White Springs.
The month of May was the driest since 1932, as the
Suwannee basin experienced a 25 inch rainfall deficit
compared to an average year, according to the Suwannee
River Water Management District. Several months of
drought has led to the record-breaking lows on the upper
Suwannee, which includes White Springs with records
going back to 1906. Gages on the upper Santa Fe re-
ported that flow has ceased. Coastal rivers fell much be-
low normal after five months of near-normal flow, and
all 16 District-monitored lakes were below their histori-
cal average level.
District Executive Director David Still said flow lev-
els are low all over the state. Although river and spring
flows in Suwannee County have not reached the dire
conditions of the upper Suwannee, he said they could if
drought conditions persist.
Recently, drought has caused groundwater levels to

A power line fell across US 129 North Wednesday
morning during rough, rainy weather that passed over
the area. The downed line stretched across both lanes
of the highway near Econo Lodge, causing traffic to be
diverted through the Walmart parking lot. Power in

police arrest

graffiti artist
By Jeff Waters, editor
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
The Live Oak Police Department has
arrested "an aspiring young artist" they
believe is responsible for placing graffiti
on several local businesses, according to
LOPD Det. Justin Bates.
William J. Howland, 26, of Live Oak,
was arrested early Thursday morning on
10 counts of criminal mischief in relation
to the graffiti, according to Bates.
"Detectives were able to piece together
the connection to Howland with informa-
tion obtained from witnesses and some
photos obtained from Howland himself,"
Bates said in a press release.
Bates said Howland admitted to placing
the graffiti.
"These acts of graffiti have ranged from
large portraits of various cartoon like
characters, large writings or verses and
some small stencil paintings," said Bates.
Bates said the graffiti caused hundreds
of dollars in damage to the businesses.
The graffiti has been spotted on an out-
side wall at Downtown Cafe, at Hardee's,
McCrimon's Office Supply and various
other locations as well as stop signs.

Fire claims south


county home


Staff reports
A fire Monday night
claimed a family home in
southern Suwannee County,
Public Safety Director
Charlie Conner said.
Justin Corbin, one of the
residents, suffered a hand
injury after breaking a win-
dow on the home in an at-
tempt to spray water onto
flames. Corbin told the De-
mocrat Wednesday that two
of his friends stopped by
Monday night. He and his
wife Lisa Corbin chatted
with them on the front
porch for a little while.
Justin said his wife went in-
side and the power to the
house flickered. He said a
couple minutes later she
opened the front door again
and smoke started billowing


out.
Conner said the fire start-
ed around 8:30 p.m. at the
home in Beachville.
"It looks like it started at a
window unit in the master
bedroom," Conner said.
Justin said he ran to the
master bedroom and saw
two foot flames coming
from the bed and that the
power cord going to the
window unit was on fire as
well.
"Within five minutes the
whole house was up in
flames," said Justin of the
1914 wood framed home.
Justin said once outside
he tried breaking a window
to the master bedroom with
the nozzle end of the water
hose. When that didn't
work, he punched the win-


dow with his fist. He said he
had to receive four stitches
on his hand.
Justin and Lisa shared the
home with their two daugh-
ters - Kelsea, 5 and Kylee,
18 months.
The family of the home is
seeking donations in the
form of clothes or anything
else needed for a home. To
donate, you can drop them
off at the Democrat offices
at 211 East Howard Street
in Live Oak. Clothing size
for Justin are 34 or 36x36
pants, XL shirts and size 12
shoes. Lisa is a size 3-5,
small to large shirts and a
size 7 shoe. Kelsea wears a
4 or 5T and a 10.5 to 11
shoe size. Kylee wears a 2T
and a 5.5 to 6 toddler shoe
size.

Suwannee a finalist for world's largest solar farm


By Stephenie Li i..i.i.. -
The world's largest solar farm could be
coming to a Suwannee community, the Na-
tional Solar Power project announced Tues-
day.
Suwannee County joins six other communi-
ties in the southeast United States that are be-
ing considered for the venture, including
Gadsden, Hardee, Osceola in Florida, Sumter
and Tatnall counties in Georgia and Guilford
County(Greensboro-area in North Carolina).
"It's wonderful that we were selected," said
County Commission Chairman Jesse
Caruthers.
The company said the $1.5 billion 400-
megawatt project will provide enough energy
to power roughly 32,000 homes.
"We are excited about the progress we have
made in narrowing the search for establishing
our groundbreaking solar farm project that
will provide a source for renewable energy for
consumers while boosting job creation and
economic health in the winning community,"
said CEO of NSP James Scrivener in a press
release.
Scrivener said over the next month the com-
pany will make a final decision about where
the venture will make its permanent home.
"Every one of the communities on our fi-
nalist list is an attractive location for this pro-


ject," he said.
Promising to put hundreds of millions of
dollars into the winning community, NSP,
based in Melbome, Florida, said their land-
mark project has the potential to create 400
jobs during the five-year construction phase
and up to 120 permanent jobs.
Suwannee County Coordinator Joe Gerrity
said the county first spoke with NSP about the
project six months ago. The county plans to
discuss the project at a July 13th workshop.
"We'll have more information at that time,"
he said.
Caruthers said there have been no in depth
discussions between the company and the
county that he is aware of. He said he imag-
ines Suwannee County was selected because
of its vast amount of open lands.
The company said plans to select a site with
adequate supply of undeveloped land, one
with appropriate business, government and
community support, tax incentives and access
to a qualified work force.
The solar farms described by NSP as "low-
profile", once operational, would be less than
seven-feet tall and surrounded by vegetation.
If Suwannee County is selected, it will take
around six months for the first segment of the
farm to be constructed. Each of the 20 farm
segments represents a $70 million investment.


Roberts won't seek 7th term


Third Judicial
Circuit Public De- f
fender Dennis i
Roberts won't seek
another term after
24 years on the job,
according to a press --
release from his of- .. .'"
fice. Third Judicial
Roberts said he Circuit Public
will retire after his Defender Dennis
current term expires Roberts
in January 2013.
"You know when it's time,"
Roberts, 61, said. "I had a great, long,
satisfying career. I just felt it was
time for a change. I felt I should an-
nounce my intentions now because it
is within one year of qualifying for
the position."
Roberts, who is the longest serving
public defender in the history of the
Third Circuit, was first elected in
1988 and has served six consecutive
terms without opposition.
"My goal is to have a smooth tran-
sition with the next public defender,"
said Roberts. "I feel responsible to
the people who have worked with me
and I am going to try and protect
them. I have had the good fortune of


having an excellent staff over the
years who deserve a deal of credit
for our success."
Roberts currently serves as Chair
for the Justice Administrative Com-
mission, a statewide position, which
serves as the administrative arm for
48 agencies, which includes the 20
elected state attorney offices as well
as the 20 public defender offices.
Roberts is also retired from the
Florida National Guard and US Ma-
rine Corp with a combined 32 years
of service. He retired at the rank of
Lieutenant Colonel with the Florida
National Guard Judge Advocate Gen-
eral's Corp (JAG).
Roberts has long been active in
civil and professional organizations
as well.
Roberts said he intends to remain
active in civic and political issues as
he has in the past.
Roberts and his wife Tina, a retired
school administrator, have three chil-
dren, Dennille Folsom, Dianna
Swisher and Daniel Roberts.
The Third Judicial Circuit is com-
prised of Columbia, Dixie, Hamilton,
Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee and
Taylor counties.


VANISHING WATER


Continued From Page 1A

fall in 92 percent of the District's monitored
wells. Levels in the Suwannee River Basin
fell to the 22nd percentile for the period of
record, meaning that almost 77 percent of
the time they have been higher than they are
now, painting a critical picture.
Groundwater supplies will not meet fu-
ture demands within the District's jurisdic-
tion, a study formally accepted by the Dis-
trict last December showed. The study said
that groundwater levels have dropped by 6
feet in some areas since the early 80s.
"It's ankle deep just a little bit below my
property," said Deb Odem who lives on 25A
in Hamilton County. "If you walk upstream
from the Highway 41 bridge in White
Springs, you'll see the entire river flow in
about a three foot wide channel. Mind bog-
gling."

In the midst of these concerns, last month,
the St. Johns River Water Management Dis-
trict approved a 20-year permit for Jack-
sonville's utility (JEA) -the largest to date.
The permit, which could mean groundwater
pumping in an excess of 160 million gallons
a day (mgd), has ignited discussion and con-
troversy.
Described by Live Oak's mayor Sonny
Nobles as "crusaders" for local rivers and
springs, Miller and White Springs Vice-
Mayor Walter Mckenzie were present at the
St. John's District Governing Board meeting
last month when the permit was issued.
Miller spoke before the board, asking that
they freeze JEA's water use at the current
level for a period of five years and develop
a wide-ranging technical and financial plan
that would fully restore the historic poten-
tiometric surface to all areas of the Floridan
Aquifer, returning springs and surface wa-
ters to their pre-development levels, and
provide adequate water from alternative
sources, such as desalination, to meet JEA
needs-in addition to other suggestions.
"I believe we made rational and realistic
recommendations that would benefit all of
us in both water management districts, but it
was clear that the Governing Board was go-
ing to grant JEA's permit, no matter what
data were presented," said Miller.
During the meeting, a JEA representative
attributed low levels, in the case of White
Sulphur Spring, to the local PCS phosphate
mine, Miller said.
In recent years, the mine has been striving
to cut its water use in half.
Alleging "gross misrepresentations" in
JEA's presentation to the St. John's District
Governing Board, Still sent a letter to the ex-
ecutive director of St. John's District. He
stated that Suwannee District officials at-
tended the meeting with their "conviction
that the water resources and future econom-
ic well being of the SRWMD have been im-
pacted and are under continued treat from
withdrawals from the Floridian aquifer sys-
tem in northeast Florida."
Still argued that the utility "manipulated
information" and "misrepresented" data
found in the Suwannee District's 2010 Water
Supply Assessment. He said statements and
conclusions regarding the District's WSA
was misleading by indicating that deficit
rainfall along with withdrawals from Geor-
gia, St. John's District and Suwannee Dis-
trict were potential causes of impacts. Still
said the assessment, in fact, did not conclude
rainfall was a reason for declining water lev-
els.
The WSA states, "This decrease is appar-
ently a result of groundwater withdrawals
originating in the District, the St. John's Riv-
er Water Management District, and the State
of Georgia."
Still also wrote that the presentation did


not mention a U.S. Geological Survey report
on a study which found that flow reduction
in White Sulphur Spring was due to ground-
water withdrawals east of the site.
Statements made by JEA said that the util-
ity's "withdrawals do not adversely impact
the SRWMD" and that PCS is responsible
for the cessation of flow in White Sulphur
Spring, Still called "unfounded".
Miller agrees that St. John's District was
misled.
"I believe JEA's consultant misrepresent-
ed data he presented at the meeting, and it is
this questionable data on which the govern-
ing board based its decision to grant the per-
mit for increased water use," she said. "The
meeting was a mockery of the public
process."
Local city officials are concerned they
will not be able to achieve economic devel-
opment goals, since they feel it is clear that
the endangered water supply could come
into play, not only when it comes to growth,
but the continued viability of their commu-
nities, according to Miller.
"I think it's really a travesty," said Nobles.
"While they siphon off our water, we're the
ones who will have to suffer."
Miller echoed, "We need water for house-
hold and personal use, for our businesses,
for agriculture, and for eco-tourism."
Mckenzie said he understands the current
drought-condition is the principal reason for
the low flow levels on the upper Suwannee.
However, he is skeptical that the problem
will be solved once the drought is over.
"When we get out of this drought, we're
still going to have a problem," he said. "I've
seen the river low before, but I've never
seen it and the spring this low at the same
time."
Though not as severe as the upper Suwan-
nee, levels further 'down upon the Suwan-
nee River' are also lower than average.
Some of Suwannee and Lafayette's springs
are disappearing.
"This spring is done," said Dan Saether,
who operates River Rendezvous in
Lafayette County, home of the once popular
diving site Convict Spring. "We'll need lots
of rain to bring this one up again."

While phosphate mining, farming and
other local contributors are factors, one local
geologist believes water usage in the
Suwannee District is minor compared to
south Georgia and JEA's impacts on water
levels in the region.
"Water we use in the Suwannee River
Water Management District does not exceed
the recharge (of the aquifer)," said Dennis
Price who, as a geologist for over 35 years,
has worked with the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection and the Suwan-
nee District. "It's not us that's causing the
problem."
Price said he understands and does not ob-
ject to St. John's making sure the utility can
continue to provide water to it's population.
"Obviously people need to drink water,"
he said. "What I object to is the board dis-
missing all of our concerns."
Price believes groundwater pumping
along the Atlantic coast of Florida, pulling
from local sources, is a major contributor to
the dry condition of some area springs. He
also theorizes that drainage of flat-woods
and wetlands in order to harvest timber for
the last 50-100 years in south Georgia and
locally is another major contributing factor.
He believes if there were more water in the
swamps, there would be more recharge of
the aquifer.
A solution?
Price believes the only remedy would be
to further address groundwater pumping
along the coast and for scientists to work to-
wards designing a plan to recharge the


aquifer.
However, he is not hopeful that north
Florida's springs and rivers will be saved in
time.
"Someone from twenty years ago might
look at this and say not much has changed.
Someone from one hundred years ago would
look and say, 'Boy, what happened, this is
awful'," he said. "Old-timers recognize the
difference."
Miller believes a solution lies in an orga-
nized effort to save the water supply by offi-
cials and Florida residents alike.
"Nature does not pay attention to artificial
boundaries created by man, irrespective
of political affiliation or the largesse of a
consulting contract," she said. "We've got to
get our collective heads out of the sand
and get organized to save the future of our
communities."

Still said while the District has not had
any issues with wells going dry, it has taken
steps to warn residents of severe drought
conditions threatening groundwater, and
urges them to cut back on water usage. The
District has issued a water shortage adviso-
ry, first declared by the District's Governing


Board in December. The advisory asks all
users to voluntarily reduce water consump-
tion indoors and outdoors until further no-
tice.
"The advisory simply calls upon all of us
to take voluntary steps to reduce both indoor
and outdoor water use during times of
drought and until conditions recover," Jon
Dinges, District director of water supply and
resource management said in a press release.
Once drought conditions improve and
groundwater and surface water levels re-
bound, the governing board may cancel the
advisory. Should conditions worsen, howev-
er, the District's board may impose manda-
tory water-use restrictions.
As for our children, and our children's
children-will they photograph the Big
Shoals and dive into the chilling waters of
Suwannee Springs? Kayak on the upper
Suwannee? Will they know these rivers and
springs as we did?
"I don't think they will, this thing is on a
downward spiral," Price said. "For them, it
will be nothing like what we're familiar
with."
The JEA was not immediately available
for comment.

people in fourth, fifth, and
sixth grade learn how to


write and deliver a speech.
Youth learn how to select a
topic, create and write a
speech, and present it in
front of others. Youth are
judged at the classroom,
school, and district level on
both composition and pre-
sentation of their speeches.
The program is adminis-
tered through the University

4-H Youth Development
program, with material pro-
vided by the Tropicana Cor-
poration, and in partnership
with local schools and teach-
ers. Additionally, the pro-
gram meets Sunshine State
standards and helps students
acquire required bench-
marks that are assessed by
the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test.
Tropicana has sponsored
the contest since 1969 and
provides classroom materi-
als for teachers, certificates
of participation, ribbons,
medallions for school win-


ners, and trophies for county

It's about


independence

That's right. The 4th of July is
about America's independence,
not just a another holiday from
work, a day at the river or beach or
a chance to shoot off fireworks. It
is that day and month in 1776 that
the Declaration of Independence
was adopted. It was the American
colonies declaring their indepen-
dence from the Kingdom of Great
Britain.
Some fun facts:
The Declaration of Indepen-
dence was drafted by Thomas Jef-
ferson between June 11 and June
28, 1776.
However, the actual legal sepa-
ration of the 13 colonies occurred
on July 2, 1776 when the Second
Continental Congress voted in
closed session in favor of a resolu-
tion for independence.
That's when they turned to Jef-
ferson's draft that had already
been prepared.
Of course, the message of the
Declaration wasn't new. In fact, its
same ideals were expressed great-
ly by notables such as John Locke
and other Continental philoso-
phers. What Jefferson did was lay
out a list of grievances against the
king to justify the separation in the
Declaration.
In July 1776, there were estimat-
ed to be 2.5 million people living
in the nation. There are now an es-
timated 311.7 million living in the
United States as of June 30.
Have a nice 4th of July to all and
don't forgot about our soldiers
who will be fighting on foreign
soil.

After months of back and forth wrangling on the wet/dry
issue, I say enough is enough. Put it to vote and abide by the
results. While on the subject, I also say enough is enough on
Casey Anthony, Lindsey Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Political sex
scandal, ambulance chaser commercials the word "like."

Cheers to those trying to bring life to downtown Live Oak
through the music pavilion, Christmas on the Square, June
Bug Festival and proposed yard sale. Thumbs down to those
defeating the effort through high stall fees.

The president and his family travel the world and play golf
while the rest of the country struggles. I have yet to find any-
where in the US Constitution or Bill of Rights, any provision
for the president's wife and her entourage to jet around the
world at the taxpayers expense.

We elect "leaders"? here with 16% of the vote & pay 'em
well! I pay a lot more than $7 in school tax with no kids, but
that's for the common good. Well, so is changing this law.
What do you think 60+ "nonprofit?" tax exempt churches
add to your taxes? This narrow minded attitude is what's re-
ally costing taxpayers. Suwannee YES has spent more than
the election cost to run an honest & factual campaign, so if
you want the $$ back, change the law!! The revenue & in-
come will be a lot more than the expense to taxpayers real
quick like. It ain't going away & you'll be payin even more
next time if it don't get passed now.

Do you call a few folks in a few counties denying the priv-
ileges, income & revenue the other millions of residents of Fl.
enjoy majority rule? I've never seen a 25+% turn out for a lo-
cal election here, is that majority rule? Do you reckon the ma-
jority of us want to buy the mansion, build soccer complex-
es, plant palm trees (they are very native here, by the way) or
pay politicos crazy salaries? $7.00, no problem, it will pro-
vide a far better return than any scheme the ruling minority
has cooked up.

Good morning, I would like to commend the gentleman
that runs the dumpsite known as "Pepper" down on Highway
51, he does a splendid job, without any help from anyone
else. Seems like some of the residents seem to think it is his
job to pick up their garbage off the ground all the time, in-
stead of using the bins that were designed to receive that
garbage. My hat is off to him he does a splendid job. This is
the best the site has looked in years. Thanks a lot and have a
great day.

Yes, in regards to how your paper is run. I cannot believe
that two firefighters lost their lives and they earned a spot on
the back of the xxxx paper, page 14, when you have a high
speed chase on the front, along with a child molester, it seems
you should have enough respect for the firefighters to put


Kave
them on the front page. Thank you very much and please ex-
cuse the language.

Yes, I would like to address a couple of issues, it seems if
my memory is correct, a few years ago, we planted trees
downtown and a few years later those same trees had to be re-
moved because of the root invasion to the water and sewer
lines beneath the streets. It seems our leaders have had a lapse
in memory. Maybe if they were spending their own money,
their memory would be a lot better. Second on this issue of
the buying the Crapps Mansion, we send our troops and ser-
vice people around the world fighting for freedom and
democracy, and yet we have leaders right here at home, mak-
ing these secret, back room deals with taxpayer money that is
supposed to be non-disclosed what they paid for the place and
all this, there is something very wrong with this picture. And
if this is a law that will allow this then we need to start a cam-
paign to change this law. This is not right and the Democrat
needs to investigate it. Thank you very much.

I am a little surprised at all the angry comments about the
so called cabbage palms in Live Oak, those are actually Sable
Palms and I guess some people don't know those are native
to Florida and they are our state tree. So, I think they would
probably look pretty good. Have a great day.

The people of Live Oak and Suwannee County should
thank Mr. Crapps, the commissioners and Mayor Nobles for
looking to the future. They are being creative in obtaining
space for a park for the community, and doing something by
softening downtown, by planting trees. By taking trust mon-
ey and grants they are using resources without costing the
taxpayer. Sable Palms are state tree and native to Florida and
they sustained our early settlers. Those of us old enough re-
member swamp cabbage, it was good. Also the trees were
used for building and the berries and hearts for animal feed.
It is a great idea for them to be planted downtown. They are
easy to maintain and drought resistant. I am tired of these
people just saying no to everything. If these people will just
let this area stay. Thank you.

Well, Jeff Waters I told everybody after your July 30, 2010,
editorial, "who makes what in Suwannee County." I said they
would either run you off or buy you off. Well, in the Suwan-
nee Democrat on June 22, 2011, it answers my question, you
were bought off.

This is in response to all the anti-palm tree nuts. I challenge
you to take a walk down Howard Street (US Hwy 90) in Live
Oak, from the Dixie Grill, westward to the downtown Cafe,
and observe that the space between the curb and the building
walls is only approximately 8 to 10 feet of paved sidewalk.
Any type of tree with a canopy top, such as oak, maple, etc.,
will overgrow the space available and damage the store own-
ers' walls, windows and canopies. The roots of this type tree
are invasive and will crack the pavement and damage water
and sewer lines, to say nothing of impeding vision for drivers.
Further, whatever is planted will have to be planted in a small
hole in the sidewalk and be able to live on extremely little
water. The Florida State Road Department is paying for this
project in its entirety. Would any of you allow someone to
plant a Live Oak tree within six or eight feet of your house
with no room for it to spread? Or directly over your water
and/or sewer lines? Please, a little common sense, folks.

on't forget about the Branford River Reunion


Monday, July 4


"Bits &


Pieces"'
By Ana Smith
As I write this, I'm already
feeling sad as the last of my :
family packs up to head to
Jacksonville for their flights
back home to Massachu-
setts. It's been years since
I've had so many teens
and young people in A
my home, and it's
been an absolute '
joy. My nieces (their
moms) have been the best of house guests (sure did
enjoy the excellent "maid" services) and caught me
up with all that their children are involved in, as
well as their extended families.
One of my great-nieces is a budding
ballerina, one of a group of young girls invited to
dance at Radio City Music Hall this spring in a
ballet. Another great-niece is a promising short-sto-
ry writer, has a lovely way of expressing herself on
paper. One great nephew is a whiz at computer
games and computer technology, another part of a
junior-high "traveling" soccer team that has done
very well the last couple of years, still another ex-
tremely interested in the culinary arts (a month ago
met his idol from one of the TV cooking shows
and was given an autographed chefs apron) and
made a great decorated cake for us......and he's only
9 years old! The rest are making life-decisions as
they go through their educations, expressing quiet-
ly a love of the Lord, showing that love not in
words but in actions, as well as preparing them-
selves for their future. How refreshing it has been
to see them living that belief, not just paying lip
service. God bless each one of them.
From the first gathering last Saturday at my son's
house, eating in the big carport, all the teens and
six parents outside playing volleyball in the pour-
ing rain, to tubing down the Ichetucknee and more
grilling and fun, finally taking a tour at the "Alpaca
Ambassadors" compound in O'Brien, it has been an
absolutely wonderful week of reconnecting with
my nieces and nephews, and the first time in more
than 6 years being in the same place at the same
time with my two brothers. I've got a treasure trove
of memories to add to my collection, and too many
photos to count. And the best part was spending
time with great-nephews and great-nieces who
were just small kids last time we were together, the
youngest not even born yet, and watching how
they have grown. They are each a credit to their
parents, loving and talented young people with
wonderful futures in store for each of them.
My personal thanks to Joyce Simpson, owner of
Alpaca Ambassadors based in Wellborn for arrang-
ing the tour on such short notice, to her son Mor-
gan who is their manager for conducting the
tour and the one who takes the animals on road
show tours up and down the east coast, and for
Nathan who was Morgan's assistant during the
tour. We loved touching and feeding the four
camels, the emus, alpacas and llamas, the "wild"
hogs who put up with our tour, providing us with
even more memories and a wonderful time.
Now I'm looking forward to the Branford Fourth
of July festivities Monday. It all starts around noon
time, with lots of craft and food vendors, entertain-
ment all day, a parade in the late afternoon and
fireworks at night. The O'Brien Tea Party will have
a yard sale, barbecue chicken and pulled pork din-
ners, and live entertainment in a yard just a block
from the park. There will be signs posted at the en-
trance to the park directing you to the site, so
please come by and say hello. The next meeting
will be on July 11, and everyone is welcome to
come and join with us.
For now, I'm going to spend a couple of days go-
ing through the huge selection of photos that I've
taken over the last week, try very hard not to cry as
I review the events of the past week and the smil-
ing faces of my family. The good Lord knows how
many more times we'll be able to gather like this,
but God willing we'll do this again next year, and
those who were not able to make it this year will
be able to attend next year, no matter where we

AN HONEST LOOK AT BIBLE
TRUTHS #2

We continue our series of Bible truths.
Last week we looked at what the Bible says about
God, Jesus and sin. Today we will notice WHAT
DOES THE BIBLE SAY--
1) About the Bible itself?
We must understand we will be judged by
the very words of Jesus [John 12:48]. It is the word
of God that Sanctifies us [John 17:17]. We are
instructed to study the word [II Tim. 2:5, I Pet.
3:15].
2) About the brevity of life?
James 4:14 "Life is a vapor that appears
for a little time and then vanishes away." The Bible
teaches that once life ends, there is judgment.
[Heb. 9:27].
3) About the gospel?
Only those who obey the gospel will be
saved [II Thess. 1:8]. Paul said the gospel is the
death, burial and resurrection of Jesus [I Cor. 15:1-
4]. It was also Paul who illustrated how one obeys
the gospel by being baptized in Romans 6:3-5.

Pool water safety


Michael Mitchell


By Michael Mitchell
Environmental supervisor II

During the hot summer days, we all
need ways to cool off. One way is by en-
joying the third most popular recreational
activity in the United States: swimming.
Even if the water looks refreshing, it may
not be. Therefore, we must all do our parts
to keep it that way. Please follow the steps
below to keep the pool water clean and fun
for all.
Pool owners:


Swimming pools can be breeding sites
for illnesses. Many illnesses occur when
fecal matter from people gets into pools or
mosquitoes are able to breed. Therefore, it
is important to keep the chemicals in bal-
ance and the filters clean.
Chlorine Concentration: 1 - 3 parts per
million (ppm), it can be higher. If you have
an outside pool, keep it closer to 3 ppm.
The sun increases the evaporation of chlo-
rine. Even if a pool has the recommended
chlorine concentration, bacteria and virus-
es can survive in the water for a while. You
can shorten the time to disinfect the pool
by increasing the chlorine concentration.
Please see Center of Disease Controls
(CDC)'s website for concentration's and
time.
pH range: 7.2 - 7.8. This is the most fa-
vorable range for people's comfort and
keeps the chlorine working its best.
Filters: There are many types of filters.
Follow the owner's manual to keep it run-
ning the best, which may include cleaning
and flushing the filter and possibly replac-
ing media or a cartridge.
Swimmers:
Swimmers must also do their part to
keep the water clean.
Many have heard the saying, "Keep sick
at home". The same goes with the pool. If
you are sick, do not get into the water. Wait
at least a week before getting into the wa-
ter if you had diarrhea.
Do not swallow water. It is one way to
get sick


Practice good hygiene. Take a shower
before getting into the pool. The cleaner
you are before you get into the pool, the
longer the filter will work at its peak.
Watch young children around water at
all times. Florida has the highest rate for
accidental deaths for young children from
drowning.
If we all do our part to keep the water

MyPlate may help us all


By Cathy Rogers
Family and Con-
sumer Sciences
Agent
UF/IFAS Suwannee
County Extension


I, You may have
seen the announce-
Cathy Rogers ment early in June
from the USDA
about the new MyPlate icon which has re-
placed the MyPyramid. It is meant to be a
quick, simple reminder for all of us to be
more mindful of the foods that we're eat-
ing. It is my hope that the MyPlate icon
will be effective in turning the citizens of
this great country back towards eating
more healthfully once again. Two-thirds of
our adult population and one-third of our
children are currently overweight or
obese. This puts them at higher risk for
many chronic diseases including heart dis-
ease, diabetes, and many types of can-
cer. Research shows that most overweight
children become overweight adults. The
new logo is simple enough for a child to
recognize and understand.
The people I have talked to about the
MyPlate design seem to like it and think
that it may actually be effective in remind-
ing them to think before they eat. MyPlate
is divided into four different parts to re-
mind us that half of our plate should be
filled with fruits and vegetables and one
fourth of the plate should be grains. The
last quarter should be a lean, protein-rich
food. Beside MyPlate is a circle indicating
a glass, bowl, or small plate of dairy prod-
ucts. The message is to eat a variety of
foods in order to get plenty of
nutrients. The plate also causes us to think
about proper portion sizes. Many of us
know that we have gotten accustomed to
larger portions than we once ate and if we
are less active than we once were, it is im-
portant to gradually cut our portions back.
While MyPlate illustrates only simple
concepts it may start conversations among


family members about what makes a meal
healthy. MyPlate has a website filled with
interactive activities designed to help you
to learn more about good nutrition and
how to take small steps towards better
health. Included on the website, www.My-
Plate.gov are 14 different one-page, Ten-
tip sheets for including more fruits and
vegetables in your day, cutting sodium,
and increasing whole grains. Other Ten-tip
sheets illustrate healthy vegetarian meals,
how to cut back on your kid's sweet treats
and smart shopping for fruits and vegeta-

Now called Brannon's Ole Country
Meat and Produce Market, the store on
Ohio Avenue South was purchased by Dale
and Lynn Brannon. The two started run-

Locally owned and operated by a family
with nearly 60 years experience in the
butchering/specialty meat industry, the
Brannon's look forward to serving you.
"We plan on keeping the same great
quality meats that Suwannee County resi-
dents desire, but we also plan on adding
some new 'healthier' options," said Lynn
Brannon.
In fact, Lynn plans on adding a protein
and supplement line for those who seek to
lose weight or build more muscle.
The Brannon's also plan on having a full
produce section with selections straight
from local farmers and will bring in fresh
fish to their market as well.

"There will also be fresh ground turkey
for those that want a leaner choice of
ground meat," said Lynn.
The Brannon's plan on continuing to
smoke different meats daily, such as
Boston butts, ribs, chicken, Brannon's
sausage, turkey breast and fish when that
arrives. They will also offer hand-dipped
ice cream and will soon offer meal re-
placement protein shakes and bars.
Dale and Lynn want to make this a spe-
cialty market that meets the needs of every
member in your family. The Brannon's
will not only have a retail market but will
also expand their current wholesale depart-
ment.
Lynn graduated from Melody Christian
Center 25 years ago. Dale is a veteran of
the US Military having served two tours in
Iraq.
The two have six children together and

The Town of Branford is considering applying to the Florida Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) for a Small Cities Community Development Block Grant
(CDBG) of up to Six Hundred Thousand Dollars ($600,000.00). These funds must
be used for one of the following purposes:

To benefit low and moderate income persons;
To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight; or
To meet other community development needs of recent origin having a particular
urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the
health or welfare of the community and where other financial resources are not
available to meet such needs.

The categories of activities for which these funds may be used are in the areas of
housing, neighborhood revitalization, commercial revitalization, or economic
development and include such improvement activities as acquisition of real
property, loans to private-for-profit business, purchase of machinery and
equipment, construction of infrastructure, rehabilitation of houses and commercial
buildings, and energy conservation. Additional information regarding the range of
activities that may be undertaken will be provided at the public hearing. For each
activity that is proposed, at least 70% of the funds must benefit low and moderate
income persons.

In developing an application for submission to DCA, the Town of Branford must
plan to minimize displacement of persons as a result of planned CDBG activities.
In addition, the Town of Branford is required to develop a plan to assist displaced
persons.

A public hearing to receive citizen views concerning the community's economic
and community development needs will be held on Thursday, July 7, 2011 at 5:45
p.m. or as soon thereafter as possible at the Town of Branford Town Hall located
at 604 NW Suwannee Avenue, Branford, Florida. For information concerning the
public hearing contact: Ms. Donna Hardin, Town Clerk, Town of Branford, 604
NW Suwannee Avenue Branford, Florida 32008. Telephone (386) 935-1146.

The public hearing is being conducted in a handicapped accessible location. Any
handicapped person requiring an interpreter for the hearing impaired or the
visually impaired should contact Ms. Hardin at least five calendar days prior to the
meeting and an interpreter will be provided. Any non-English speaking person
wishing to attend the public hearing should contact Ms. Hardin at least five
calendar days prior to the meeting and a language interpreter will be provided.
Any handicapped person requiring special accommodation at this meeting should
contact Ms. Hardin at least five calendar days prior to the meeting.

According to numerous Facebook fans and Suwannee Historical Museum curator Randy
Torrance, the two-story building south of the Suwannee County Courthouse once housed
two businesses - the Gulf Station on the first floor, with Dr. George Lee's dentist office up-
stairs. This is what a granddaughter of Lee's had to say: "This is the image blazed into my
memory of how Live Oak looked in my youth. And yes, my grandfather's dental office was
upstairs in that white building. After graduating from Atlanta Dental College in 1914, he
worked for a while in White Springs, where he met & married his wife in 1918, and moved
to Live Oak because he had bought out the retiring Live Oak dentist's business, dental
equipment, & waiting room furniture. Some of the antique Mission Oak waiting room fur-
niture and one of his dental chairs can be seen at the museum housed in the old railroad
depot." - Joe and Lee Williams Hatch.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Mary Meyler was a regular patient at
the dental clinic at Coastal Carolina
Community College in Jacksonville,
N.C. And it was a routine visit there
earlier this year that may have
literally been a life-saver for the 71-
year-old Meyler.
As Kaylah Piner, a 23-year-old
second-year dental student,
performed her role as hygienist, she
noticed that her patient had an
enlarged thyroid. After Meyler
confided that she'd recently put on
some weight, Piner thought it
sounded similar to the experience
she'd had with her own mother, who
had thyroid cancer. Piner shared that
information with Meyler and Meyler
went for an exam and a biopsy that
confirmed that the growth in the
thyroid was 30 percent cancerous.
Surgery successfully removed the
cancerous portion of Meyler's
thyroid.
Had the situation not been
addressed quickly, Meyler's
outcome could have been very
different. This is another example of
how a dental exam can turn up
conditions of which a patient might
not have been aware. Talk with your
dentist about health problems other
than dental ones that can be
detected in an oral exam.

Suwannee Storm takes




third at FSU team camp


Suwannee Storm finished third at the Leonard Hamilton team camp recently held on the FSU campus.


Submitted

TALLAHASSEE-The Suwan-
nee Storm attended the Leonard
Hamilton Team Basketball Camp
at Florida State University June
10-12 and placed third out of 28
small varsity teams present.
The competition is held at FSU
in June every year and is open to
high school teams regardless of
FHSAA classification. Games
were held on the FSU campus, at
the Tallahassee-Leon Civic Cen-


ter and at FAMU high school.
The young Suwannee team that
competed at this year's FSU
tournament was composed of
players in the eighth, ninth and
tenth grades, but the Storm elect-
ed to play "up" into the varsity
division this year after being un-
defeated last year in the Junior
Varsity division.
This new young team played
for the first time together against
bigger schools with older kids
and did remarkably well.


The Storm (7-3) competed
against teams from Florida and
South Georgia and made it to the
tournament's Final Four.
Two of the team's three losses
came from Class 5A Fleming Is-
land, who ended up second over-
all in the tournament, losing only
to Mitchell High School. Flem-
ing Island played on the same
side of the final bracket as
Suwannee, who did not face
Mitchell directly in the tourna-
ment.

COCOA BEACH-Suwannee High sophomore Jimmie

The tournament was held June 3-5 in Cocoa Beach,
where the Elite defeated the Jupiter Jaguars 68-42 in the
finals to take home the trophy.
The Florida Elite is currently ranked first out of thirty
Division 1 teams in the USSSA, and will advance to the
national tournament.
Taylor will soon begin a demanding stretch on the road
when the Elite plays in July, including trips to Georgia,
Kentucky, Indiana, North Carolina, and finally back to Or-

RELIGION



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


Communication is key


I have been working on
improving my texting
skills. My kids can whip
out text messages in a mat-
ter of seconds and never
miss a beat, but I have been
what you might call text
challenged. The first few
times I tried to send one, I
couldn't figure out how to
space between the words,
soitalllookedlikethis. When
I finally figured it out, I s e
ntonethatlookedl
I k e t h I s. My kids get a
lot of laughs at my ex-
pense. The way I see it, if
you already have a phone
in your hand, just call and
SAY what you need to say,
for cryin' out loud! But...if
this is the way the younger
generation communicates,
I want to be in on it because
I am convinced that com-
munication is the key to
every great relationship.
According to Dr. Gary
Chapman's book Now
You're Speaking My Lan-
guage, communication in-
volves "self-revelation" on
the part of one individual
and listening on the part of
another. "Communication
is essential in order to un-
derstand what is going on
inside other people. If they
do not share their thoughts,
feelings, and experiences,
we are left to guess. Unfor-
tunately, our guesses are


usually wrong and lead to
misunderstandings." These
misunderstandings can
cause some big problems,
and can often be the reason
we stop communicat-
ing...who needs the hassle?
The problem is sweeping a
problem under the rug and
pretending like it isn't
there, doesn't make it go
away. It is just waiting for
us to trip over it another
day!
For some, the only thing
more difficult than being a
good listener is being the
one who shares our own
thoughts, feelings and ex-
periences. We may be able
to talk (or text) all day
about a hunting trip, the
great sale at the mall, or
who won the ballgame, but
letting another person in on
how we feel is often new
territory. In 1 Corinthians
2:11, the Bible records a
question raised by the
apostle Paul, "Who knows
the thoughts of a man, ex-
cept the man's spirit within
him?" (What woman hasn't
wondered the same?)
Good communication is
the road to intimacy.. .poor
communication leads rela-
tionships down dead-end
streets. This week try re-
sponding with something
besides "fine" when your
spouse asks about your day.


Learn how to send your
kids a text message. E-mail
or call a friend. Communi-
cation is about sharing
life... so slow down and
talk, listen, and share your
thoughts... and your
heart... because it really
does matter!

FREE SUNDAY LUNCH
For the past several months a group headed up by Pat
and JoAnn Lynch have been serving a free lunch at
the community center in Live Oak the last Sunday of
the month. This past month we fed around 300
children and families. We support this project by
selling donated items at the Flea Market in Lake City.
We have cleaned out all of our closets, garages and are
now in need of items to be donated to this cause. We
also need volunteers to help set up and serve the
meals. If you are interested in volunteering or would
like to donate garage sale items you may contact Pat
and Jo Ann Lynch at (386) 935-1076 or Roger
Burnside at (386) 935-3343.


Out of the darkness

and into the light


Dr Donald M. Minshew
Senior Pastor
Wellborn Baptist Church

Darkness. Few things are
as dark as a limestone cave
shut tight to hold the body
of the dead. Even with the
stone rolled away, the dark-
ness of death dominated.
Then a voice that had spo-
ken life into existence in the
first place cried out,
"Lazarus, come forth."
Out of the darkness and into
the light, Lazarus came.
Peter was there when
Lazarus emerged from the
tomb. It might have been
that graphic example he re-
membered when he wrote
the words, "But you are a
chosen race, a royal priest-
hood, a holy nation, a peo-
ple for His possession, so
that you may proclaim the
praises of the One who
called you out of darkness
into His marvelous light."
Yet, what he describes is
even more miraculous and
far deeper than the raising
of a man from the dead.
In biblical terms the dom-
inant theme of sin is dark-
ness. At the same time, the
dominant theme of Christ is
light. Darkness is not mere-
ly being in the dark: dark-
ness is a place where evil


S-
_____-_ .AI


i 1 w i I, I
Dr. Donald M. Minshew

and wickedness and perver-
sion and the grossness of
sinful invention dominate.
Darkness becomes progres-
sively darker. Sin becomes
increasingly gross. Once a
person moves down the
road into darkness, they
find that what once seemed
bad no longer seems bad.
What once seem evil, now
can appear normal.
This progressive move
toward darkness is not sim-
ply the result of man's own
choice. The Bible de-
scribes a great enemy
whose intent is the destruc-
tion of people. He does not
begin with gross and terri-
ble sin as a temptation. No.
Satan casts sinful activity
in acceptable forms, just a
little further out than
you've been before. You
buy into that activity and
find that it is pleasurable.
Then he casts
another....just a little fur-
ther out; interesting. It is
not as pleasurable, but there
is still pleasure and you
want more. So he casts an-
other. This is weird. It is
hardly pleasurable but there
is just enough to make you
want the next thing. The
next thing is not pleasure at
all, but somehow you can't
give it up. You have been
trapped. You can become
disgusted by its grossness,
find it is demeaning beyond
measure, thoroughly aware
that you are exiled in dark-
ness and can't find your
way out. There is no hope.
Here is where all the
trumpets of heaven blow.
Christ calls to us in the
darkness. He says "Come
to me. Just follow my
voice. Come to me. I will
give you rest. Come to me.
I'll clean up the grossness.
Come to me....out of the
darkness and into the
light." And for those of us
who follow His voice and
find out way out, we de-
clare with all joy that He is
the One who has called us
out of darkness and that the
Light is Marvelous!
