Marine Lance Cpl. Josh Coulter said he
thought the heat in Florida was tough to
handle, when he called the Democrat
from Afghanistan Thursday.
"It's hot as hell, I'll say that. Yeah, it's pretty warm,"
said the 20-year-old Suwannee County native.
Across static field lines, Coulter called to share his
thoughts on life in the Marines.
Living in a "can", a small aluminum building that hous-
es 12 Marines, Coulter said living conditions aren't exact-
ly ideal, but he's not complaining--though he's sick of the
dust. When he wakes up at 6 a.m. and makes his way to
the chow hall, all he sees is sand.
Coulter is a logistics vehicle system operator with Ma-
rine Wing Support Squadron 272. He is currently working
to excavate land for new living areas on the flight line at
Camp Bastion. Once completed, the project will include
living areas, and dining and recreation facilities for
Marines with 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing aviation
squadrons.
"Basically, I drive trucks," said Coulter.
The 2009 Suwannee High School graduate said he was
involved in every sport from baseball to the swim team
during his school years. The son of Carrie and Gene Skin-
ner, Coulter said it was weeks after speaking to a Marine
recruiter that he finally worked up the nerve to tell his

CRA Board to

By Jeff Waters, editor
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
The Community Rede-
velopment Agency Board
agreed recently to hire a
part time director.
The director will be re-
sponsible for providing
management, planning
and economic services to
the CRA.
The CRA's purpose is to
revitalize areas that are
considered to be dis-
tressed or a blight to the


community. The CRA dis-
trict encompasses most of
downtown Live Oak.
The part time employee
will be paid an hourly rate,
based on qualifications,
plus retirement.
One councilman who
voted against hiring a di-
rector questioned the
need.
"Do we have enough

Board meetings
ON Tuesday, July 12, the Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District's Governing Board will meet at 9 a.m.
at District headquarters, 9225 CR 49, Live Oak. The
meeting is to consider District business and conduct pub-
lic hearings on regulatory and land acquisition matters. A
workshop will follow the Governing Board meeting.
On Monday, July 25, at 1 p.m., a tentative intermediate
Governing Board meeting will be held at District head-
quarters in Live Oak. Public should check the District
website at www.mysuwanneeriver.org or contact the Dis-
trict at 386-362-1001 to confirm the meeting has not
been canceled or rescheduled.
All meetings, workshops and hearings are open to the
public.


Safety/T, ,,ii..* Officer
Alan Bedenlanu ,,h

So far in these summer months, we
have had small storms with high winds
come through our county taking trees
and power lines down causing power
outages. These outages may include
main traffic lights. If the traffic lights
are out at an intersection, you should
treat these intersections as a four way
stop. Please to a full stop and look to
make sure that other cars are stopping as
well, before you proceed through the in-
tersection. This will avoid unnecessary


traffic tickets, and accidents.
If a power line has fallen across the
road please stop. It is dangerous to drive
over a fallen power line. The line could
still have electricity flowing through it
which can kill you, or it could get
wrapped up in your tires causing dam-
age to your vehicle or yourself.
If there is a safe way you can get
around a fallen power line take it, even
if it means you have to drive out of your
way. It's always better to be safe than
sorry.

Thank you

A cool way to


beat the heat
Emily Clingman of Deltona, and Mary Hannah Green
of Orlando, set up a lemonade stand, Saturday, June 25,
in front of Grandma and PopPop's house, Richard and
Glinda Pennock of McAlpin.
They offered "ice cold" old fashioned lemonade, pink
lemonade and sweet iced tea.
Neighbors, friends and family and even visitors from
Michigan, came by to cool off from a hot summer's day.
The girls had so much fun while learning that hard work
really does pay off.
They would like to thank everyone that stopped by for
their support and helping make their summer experience
a memorable one.

PAINT & Hmw's


*1)


What's the most common
painting mistake people
make?


\ , ,y They don't prepare the surface
sufficiently, in their rush to start
painting. You have to clean your walls thoroughly.
There are usually handprints around the light
switches, cobwebs in the corners, soap build-up and
lotion spots in the bathrooms, greasy smoke residue
in the kitchen. Paint will stick to that kind of dirt, but
the dirt won't stick to the walls, so you'll quickly get
paint failure in those spots. And one more mistake
people make: They underestimate the value of good
tools. Use the type of traditional bristle brush or
moderate-nap roller that's recommended on your
paint cans, ask your retailer for advice, and don't be
stingy, or else you'll end up with tools that shed fibers
into your paint. 680407cpV

vacation



Bible school

Well, it is summer here in North Florida again
and that means certain things are virtually guar-
anteed. For example, you can count on the
weather being so hot that the asphalt roads will
give-off steam after a sudden rain. Then there are
those tiny gnats that almost certainly will pester
you nonstop on your daily trek to the mailbox.
Thanks to the high humidity, sweat will be your
constant companion. (Of course, my wife insists
she has never sweated a day in her life. Like
many a Southern Belle, she claims instead that
she simply "glistens!") And last but not least,
summer means A LOT of area churches will host
a week of vacation Bible school---or VBS---for
youngsters.
I only got to go to vacation Bible school one
summer. You see, I grew up way out in the coun-
try ---far from any church---and six decades ago
few mothers drove. However, we did live in
town the summer I was seven. Although our
church was miles away, another---of a different
faith---was located just across the street. It was
that VBS I attended. And while I may not be able
to tell you what I saw on TV last night, my mem-
ories of that week remain fairly vivid.
Of course, I'm sure by today's standards; my
VBS would be considered prehistoric. For ex-
ample, Christian DVDs were unheard of. In fact,
the only vacation Bible school technology I can
recall was a "felt board." Remember those seem-
ingly magical things? But while the felt board
may be primitive by today's standards, I'm will-
ing to bet a new nickel the Bible stories that un-
folded on its surface were every bit as memo-
rable to me as those told to kids today via state
of the art, computer-generated animation.
I remember taking home a ton of Bible pic-
tures, which I had colored. I also remember a lot
of projects involving paste, which I seemed to
always get everywhere except where it was sup-
posed to go. Paste was, in fact, one of the more
popular aspects of VBS, particularly among the
youngest enrollees. Of course, they seemed
more interested in eating it, than anything
else... which may tell you quite a bit about the
quality of our snacks.
I don't remember much about VBS teachers,
with the exception of Miss. Mildred, who played
the piano as we sang---or at least yelled in uni-
son---"Jesus Loves Me." I think it was her size
and girth that was most memorable...coupled
with the fact that she insisted on wearing bright-
ly colored floral patterned dresses. Watching her
enter a room was not unlike seeing an entire
greenhouse move from Point A to Point B.
I remember she only played the piano with her
right hand. I never learned if that was her skill
level or because of the heat. Remember, this was
long before air conditioning was common, so
Miss. Mildred was always armed with a funeral
home fan grasped firmly in her left hand. The
speed of the fan apparently was determined by
the heat, which was then reflected in her piano
playing. Thus, our version of "Onward Christian
Soldiers," might have been better entitled at
times, "Troops, Sprint like the Dickens for Je-
sus!"


Later in life, I asked my mother why she had
elected to send me to a vacation Bible school at
a church whose faith was different from ours.
She explained it was for "salvation purposes."
Not for my soul, but for HER sanity! Only lat-
er, when I worked nights and was at home alone
all summer with two bored kids, did I really
come to appreciate what she meant.

There's little that's intelligent or
informed about Time magazine ed-
itor Richard Stengel's article "One
Document, Under Siege" (June 23,
2011). It contains many grossly ig-
norant statements about our Con-
stitution. If I believed in conspira-
cies, I'd say Stengel's article is part
of a leftist agenda to undermine re-
spect for the founding values of
our nation.


Stengel says: "The framers were
not gods and were not infallible. Yes, they gave us, and the
world, a blueprint for the protection of democratic free-
doms -- freedom of speech, assembly, religion -- but they
also gave us the idea that a black person was three-fifths of
a human being, that women were not allowed to vote and
that South Dakota should have the same number of Sena-
tors as California, which is kind of crazy. And I'm not even
going to mention the Electoral College."
My column last week addressed the compromise where-
by each slave was counted as three-fifths of a person for the
purposes of determining representation in the House of
Representatives and Electoral College. Had slaves been
counted as whole people, slaveholding states would have
had much greater political power. I agree the framers were
not gods and were not infallible, but they had far greater
wisdom and principle than today's politicians.
The framers held democracy and majority rule in deep
contempt. As a matter of fact, the term democracy appears
in none of our founding documents. James Madison argued
that "measures are too often decided, not according to the
rules of justice and the rights of the minor party, but by the
superior force of an interested and overbearing majority."
John Adams said: "Remember, democracy never lasts long.
It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never
was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide." Sten-
gel's majoritarian vision sees it as anti-democratic that
South Dakota and California both have two senators, but
the framers wanted to reduce the chances that highly popu-
lated states would run roughshod over thinly populated
states. They established the Electoral College to serve the
same purpose in determining the presidency.
The framers recognized that most human abuses were the
result of government. As Thomas Paine said, "government,


FACEBOOK POLL QUESTION
The Suwannee Democrat asked on June 27, "Will you be
casting a vote on Aug. 16 regarding the wet/dry issue in
Suwannee County?"


even in its best state, is but a nec-
essary evil." Because of their dis-
trust, the framers sought to keep
the federal government limited in
its power. Their distrust of Con-
gress is seen in the language used
throughout our Constitution. The
Bill of Rights says Congress shall
not abridge, shall not infringe,
shall not deny and other shall-
nots, such as disparage, violate


and deny. If the founders did not
believe Congress would abuse our God-given, or natural,
rights, they would not have provided those protections. I've
always argued that if we depart this world and see anything
resembling the Bill of Rights at our next destination, we'll
know we're in hell. A bill of rights in heaven would be an
affront to God.
Other founder distrust for government is found in the
Constitution's separation of powers, checks and balances,
and several anti-majoritarian provisions, such as the Elec-
toral College, two-thirds vote to override a veto and the re-
quirement that three-quarters of state legislatures ratify
changes to the Constitution.
Stengel says, "If the Constitution was intended to limit
the federal government, it sure doesn't say so." That state-
ment is beyond ignorance. The 10th Amendment reads:
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Con-
stitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to
the States respectively, or to the people." Stengel apparent-
ly has not read The Federalist No. 45, in which James
Madison, the acknowledged father of the Constitution,
said: "The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution
to the federal government, are few and defined. Those
which are to remain in the State governments are numerous
and indefinite."
Stengel's article is five pages online, and I've only com-
mented on the first. There's also little in the remaining
pages that reflects understanding and respect for our na-
tion's most important document.

It involved a wee bit of creative trickery, but the mis-
sion was an honorable one and it was accomplished in
,grand style. Nell Lewis, whom you know from all her
years as former owner of Nell's Restaurant in Branford,4
'was presented with a community service award at a Town
- Nell's Restaurant at the junction of US 129 and US 27
in Branford is now under new ownership and a slightly
different name: Nell's Country Kitchen, which re-opened
for the first time on Saturday, April 2 at 6:30 a.m. Tam-
my Taylor, the new owner, is carrying on the tradition of


Nell Lewis with her sons Tommy and Troney. -Courtesy photos

good home cooking.
"She was very surprised. She had no
idea," Town Council President Shirley
Clark said when Lewis found out she was
being honored.
Lewis was lured to the meeting that


evening by Clark, who told her she need-
ed her input on one of the agenda items.
The beautiful plaque she received from
the mayor and the Town Council of Bran-
ford barely touches the surface describing
all Nell has done for the community of
Branford throughout the years, officials
said.


The plaque reads, 'For over 40 years of
Service, Love, Friendship and Food to the
Branford Community - Thank You Ms.
Nell.'
Aside from all the council members
who were present for the award ceremo-
ny, Nell's sons Tommy and Troney were
also in attendance.


"She's still working hard," Clark said.
"She's supposed to be resting, but she's
still working in the community, always
willing to help with anything she can.
She's a very loving person. She cares
about her community, her friends and her
family."


Bridge inspection checks out fine


Continued From Page 7A

Inspector David Garza was
on the scene and he said
so far, so good on the in-
spection. Garza has been
with the FDOT since


1992.
"It's a routine inspec-
tion," Garza said. "It's on
a two-year cycle."
Garza said as part of
their inspection they check
underneath for cracks in


the beams and the deck,
using a uniquely designed
hydraulic bucket that is
mounted onto a truck,
which sits atop the bridge.
This specialized equip-
ment allows them to ma-


never safely underneath
the bridge.
The Suwannee River has
been at near record lows
this year because of the
current drought situation,
not only in Branford, but


all along the river.
"Two years ago when
our divers looked at it,
their max depth was 24
feet," Garza said. "They
did it again this month and
it was 12 feet."


Only one lane of the
bridge was open to traffic
while inspectors were
working, but the FDOT
flaggers did a fine job of
keeping the traffic flowing
with minimal wait time.

the library was all about
Europe and, among other
fun activities, a roomful of
eager young children lis-
tened intently to new-

for some very familiar
everyday words. This
time, however, they were
spoken in German.
Eins, zwei, drei, vier,

numbers one through ten
are pronounced in German
and all the children had no
problem easily enunciating
them.

"Many people worked for
several years to turn this
vision into reality. We're
happy to have a home for
the Chamber and invite
everyone to come visit."
The Chamber held a
p.iiiig; of the keys" cer-
emony recently. City
Clerk John Gill handed


over the keys to Old City
Hall to Burley, and Burley
handed over the keys to
the former Chamber resi-
dence to First Federal
Bank of Florida President
and CEO Keith Leibfried.
FFBF owns the building
the Chamber was former-
ly using.
"First Federal looks for-
ward to continuing our


partnership with the
Suwannee County Cham-
ber and the community.
We have enjoyed the
Chamber being our neigh-
bors and wish them well in
their new office. We want
to thank our customers for
their loyalty because with-
out them our community
partnerships would not be
possible." Leibfried said.
Burley said the Chamber
isn't using the whole
building, only part of the
downstairs.
Built in 1908, the new
Chamber headquarters
housed the city fire and
police departments as well
as the city administration
offices. Long before the
city purchased its first fire
truck, a horse-drawn fire
wagon occupied the east
bay and the fire chief had
an apartment upstairs. The
city jail was located there
as well. Steel bars still ex-
ist on some of the win-
dows where inmates were
housed.


Wellborn man arrested

following high speed chase


Staff reports
A Wellborn man was arrested recent-
ly following a high speed chase
through that town, Suwannee County
sheriff's reports show.
Kelvin Jamal Whitmore, 28, of
12294 CR 10A, Wellborn, was arrested
on charges of aggravated fleeing and
eluding and driving while license sus-
pended or revoked, reports indicate.
According to a report, Sheriff's
Deputy Brian Barrs attempted to con-
duct a traffic stop on Whitmore around
12:06 a.m. on June 29 on 8th Ave. He
said Whitmore refused to stop.


"I activated my emergency lights
and siren. The defendant still refused
to stop," wrote Barrs.
He then reported that Whitmore fled
at a high rate of speed on 8th Ave. and
continuing onto 3rd Ave. Whitmore
then turned onto CR 10A and drove a
short distance before stopping at his
residence.
Whitmore was then placed under ar-
rest. Upon checking Whitmore, it was
learned his driver license had been re-
voked for two years on March 15.
Whitmore was booked into the
Suwannee County Jail.


CRA Board to seek director

time to justify hiring some-
body 30 hours a week and
paying them a retirement,"
Adam Prins asked.
City Administrator Bob
Farley said money in the
CRA fund can only be used
for CRA purposes and the
money needs to be used
wisely to get the best from


it.
"There's a lot of money
to be spent and there's a lot
of work to be done in this
community," said Farley.
That work will include
beautifying the CRA dis-
trict.
Some officials agreed a
director is needed to over-
see the CRA since city ad-
ministrators handle the du-


ties now.
"This is a very important
position," said Councilman
John Yulee. "He's got to un-
derstand the statutes, he's
got to understand how gov-
ernment works and most of
all he's got to have experi-
ence in asking for money."
CRA funding comes from
calculations based on prop-
erty taxes.

CHICAGO-As a rising sophomore pitcher Daniel Till-
man, got to see the potential of rising senior infielder Ryan
Stovall.
Little did they know that wouldn't be the first or last time
seeing each other.
For that brief one year, the two were teammates for the
Suwannee High varsity baseball team under coach Ronnie
Gray.
The two went their separate ways as Tillman went to
Florida Southern College, while Stovall bounced around
colleges before graduating from Thomas University.
After a stellar career at Lee College and Thomas Univer-
sity, Stovall, a 2005 Suwannee graduate, was taken in the
19th round by the Kansas City Royals in the 2009 Major
League Baseball draft.
Tillman, a 2007 Suwannee graduate, finished three years
at the Division II national power leaving the school as the
all-time saves leader. With the 81st pick, the California An-
gels selected Tillman in the second round of the 2010 draft.
Two months ago, the two former teammates met again
May 17 when Tillman's Cedar Rapids Kernels hosted Sto-
vall's Kane County Cougars in a Class A Midwest League
series.
Tillman threw five innings, allowing four hits and one

Road Trip: Jacksonville Suns


By Corey Davis

Editors note:With summer I,. .*..,
I;hi.. .lit it would be a good idea to talk
about .I,.-., iH,,: events ..-. ..,.* on within
an hour or so drive. Gas up the car or
SUV and get out of town and explore
-./'. "i .' events in Tallahassee,
Gainesville, Jacksonville, Daytona or
Valdosta.
JACKSONVILLE-Looking for
something inexpensive and fun to do
this summer, head over to Jacksonville
and check out a Jacksonville Suns
game.
The Suns are the reigning 2009 and
2010 Southern League champions and
have plenty to offer fans of all ages to
keep everyone's attention.
The Double AA affiliate of the Flori-
da Marlins has seen its share of notable
Major League players come through
Wolfson Park and now the Baseball
Grounds of Jacksonville including:
Hank Aaron, Michael Jordan and Ken
Griffey Jr.. You never know who might
come through and play on the Baseball


Grounds.
Jacksonville pro baseball was found-
ed in 1904. It began when the Jack-
sonville Jays participated in the South
Atlantic League. In those days, baseball
was played at Dixieland Park in the
Southside of town. Back then, most
fans would have to ride ferries to attend
the games because there were still no
bridges connecting one side of the St.
John's River to the other.
Hall of Fame manager Connie Mack
brought his 1916 Philadelphia Athletics
to train in Jacksonville. But even before
then, Jacksonville hosted baseball's
first Spring Training as Jacksonville in
1888 hosted as the Washington States-
men hosted the Philadelphia Athletics,
Brooklyn Dodgers, Cincinnati Reds
and Boston Nationals. It has been said
that the Brooklyn Dodgers actually
owned ships which would dock at the
Hogan Street pier.
The first half-century witnessed
Jacksonville professional baseball
teams go through several league and
name changes. From 1904-1950, they


played in three different South Atlantic
League classifications: Class C (1904-
1917), Class B (1936-1942) and Class
A (1946-1950). Jacksonville was a
member of the Florida State League
(Class C) and the Southeastern League
(Class B) as well.
The team that began its history as the
Jays, also were known as the Scouts,
Tarpons, Roses, Indians and Tars dur-
ing this period. Not to be outdone,
Jacksonville's boys also managed to
bring home three league championships
in 1908, 1912 and 1927. Hall of Fame
reliever Hoyt Wilhelm pitched in Jack-
sonville from 1948-49. Red Cap Field,
or Durkee Field, hosted both the minor
league Tars and negro league Red Caps
teams in the post-war years.
Jacksonville pro baseball's longtime
early home, Durkee Field, or Red Cap
Field, still stands on Myrtle Avenue.
All-time home run leader Hank
Aaron was a Jacksonville Brave in
1953 and joined Felix Mantilla and two
Savannah players to first integrate the
South Atlantic League. Jacksonville


fans were privileged to see a 19-year-
old Aaron, freshly signed from Mobile,
Ala. Managed by the legendary Ben
Geraghty, who Aaron called the kindest
and best manager he ever played for, he
garnered the Most Valuable Player
award that season, batting .362 with
208 hits, 36 doubles, 125 runs batted in
and 115 runs. The next season, Aaron
was signed to a Major League contract
by the Milwaukee Braves and began his
run to the Hall of Fame. The '50s stabi-
lized Jacksonville's pro baseball circuit.
The Braves made the playoffs six times
in the decade, compiling a 770-665
(.537) record and capturing the 1956
South Atlantic League championship.
Knuckleball expert Phil Niekro, who
won 318 Major League games, also
played for the Braves in the 1960 and
was later inducted into Cooperstown.
The Braves remained in Jacksonville
through the 1961, but pulled up stakes
as triple-A baseball settled in. The
Cleveland Indians moved their Interna-

tional League team from Havana, Cuba,
to Jacksonville in 1962 and the Suns
were born. The Suns were affiliated with
the Indians for two seasons, including in
1963 when Tommy John pitched. (He lat-
er won 288 Major League games.) The
St. Louis Cardinals were the Suns' affili-
ate in 1964-65 and then the New York
Mets were for three seasons. The Mets
brought Jacksonville two Hall of Fame
pitchers - Nolan Ryan and Tom Seaver -
and its only triple-A Championship in
1968. But the Mets were lured away
from Wolfson Park by a new ballpark in
Norfolk, Va., after the season; and for
1969, Jacksonville was without a profes-
sional baseball team for the first time
since World War II.
The Southern League welcomed Jack-
sonville in 1970, where the team has
played since. It is the longest consecutive
association of any city with a Class AA
league. Jacksonville owns the SL record
for most playoff appearances, 14, but un-
til 1996, the team had not captured a
Southern league Championship. It re-
mains the team's lone outright league
championship, though the Suns have
reached the series finals 10 times.
Membership has its privileges and the
Suns were treated to a good pipeline of
talent from the Kansas City Royals. The
Royals became the Suns' in 1972 and re-
mained through the 1983 season. Suns
teams marched their way to five Champi-
onship Series with the Royals as their
parent club. Two future big league man-
agers used Jacksonville as a stepping
stone: Billy Gardner, Sr., (1972-74) and
Gene Lamont (1980-83). Both won Man-
ager of the Year awards: Gardner in 1973
and Lamont in 1982.
The Jacksonville Expos were born fol-
lowing the 1984 season. First, the team
signed a new player development agree-
ment with the Montreal Expos and
agreed to be named after the parent club.
Secondly, the team was purchased by Pe-
ter D. Bragan, Sr., an automobile dealer
from Birmingham, Ala. Bragan's owner-
ship of the club marks the longest tenure
of any owner in Jacksonville profession-
al sports history.
Expos teams made trips to the playoffs
in four of the seven seasons they were in
Jacksonville, but again finished just shy
of bringing the city its first Southern
League championship. The Expos years
were probably the richest in Major
League talent as a number of players
went on to The Show including Randy
Johnson, Larry Walker, Andres Galarra-
ga, Marquis Grissom, DeLino DeShields
and John VanderWal, to name a few.
In 1991, the Suns signed a four-year


rip: Jac

agreement with the Seattle Mariners. Al-
though the team finished over .500 only
once during this period, the team had a
number of individuals who performed
well and later went on to the Major
Leagues. Bret Boone, Mike Hampton
and Chris Widger are among those who
left Jacksonville and played in the Major
Leagues.
Seattle left for Wilmington, N.C., after
the 1994 season and the Suns began a
six-year run as an affiliate of the Detroit
Tigers. Things started to look brighter for
the Suns future as Tigers' farm hands
brought the Suns within one out of the
playoffs in 1995 and then swept through
the Southern League in 1996. The Suns
captured both the first and second half
championships before beating the Caroli-
na Mudcats for the Eastern Division title
and the Chattanooga Lookouts for the
first Southern League Championship.
The Suns nearly won its second title in
1998 behind Southern League Most
Valuable Player Gabe Kapler. After win-
ning the first half and owning the top
record in the Minors, the Suns swept
Knoxville in the first round of the play-
offs before losing to Mobile in the finals.
Following the 2000 season, the Tigers
left for Erie, Pa., and the Suns signed a
four-year agreement with the Los Ange-
les Dodgers. Playing as an affiliate to
one of the most storied franchises in all
of professional sports, the Suns got off to
a blazing start as they stormed to the first
half crown in 2001. The Suns advanced
to the finals, but because of the Septem-
ber llth tragedy, the Southern League
cancelled the games and declared the
Suns and the Huntsville Stars co-champi-
ons. The Suns reached the finals again in
2002, but were swept by the Birmingham
Barons in three games.
The Suns began a new chapter in 2003
with the opening of the $34 million
Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville. The
facility, built by Jacksonville taxpayers
as part of the Better Jacksonville Plan,
housed a franchise-record 359,979 fans
in its inaugural season and surpassed that
mark in year two, drawing 420,495
through the gates. The Suns welcomed
the 1,000,000th fan to the Baseball
Grounds in just its fourth season and
have led the Southern League in atten-
dance each of those years.
Since the opening of the Baseball
Grounds in 2003, the crowning achieve-
ment has been winning the Southern
League Championship in 2005. Led by
two-time Southern League Manager of
the Year John Shoemaker, the Suns
stormed through the regular season and
the Southern League playoffs while earn-
ing Baseball America's coveted Minor
League Team of the Year honors. Behind

current major leaguers Russell Martin,
Chad Billinglsey, Jonathan Broxton and

Juan Guzman and Andy LaRoche, the
Suns put together one of the greatest sin-
gle teams in Jacksonville Baseball histo-
ry en route to a memorable champi-

for the 2008 campaign with a distin-
guished lineup of future major league
pitchers including Clayton Kershaw and
Scott Elbert.
Martin (Left), Loney (Right) and the
2005 Southern League Champions
In 2009 the Florida Marlins became the
seventh parent club in Jacksonville's
Southern League history. Commenting on
the affiliate change Suns President and
General Manager Peter Bragan Jr. felt "it
was best for the Jacksonville Suns to
have a parent club close to home. It's an
easy ride down 1-95 to see the big club
now, and we're excited to have a part in
the bright future of Marlins baseball."
Manager Brandon Hyde led the Suns in
their inaugural season as a Marlin affili-
ate.
In their first season as a Marlins affiliate
the Suns exceeded all expectations by
posting an 82-58 overall record and win-
ning the Southern League Championship.
The League Championship is the ninth in
the City of Jacksonville's professional


baseball history (1904-present), and
fourth since the Suns joined the Double-
A Southern League (1970-present).

2009 Southern League Champs
In just the second season as the Marlins
affiliate the Suns repeated as Southern
League Champions with an 81-59 record.
This marks the 10th championship in the
city's professional baseball history and
the 5th title since the Suns became a
member of the Southern League in 1970.

Two young stars made their mark in the
Major Leagues with the Marlins as out-
fielder's Mike Stanton and Logan Morri-
son both made their debut in 2010, giving
baseball a glimpse of the future Florida
Marlins.

first half to forget as both
teams finished sixth and
seventh in the Midwest
League Western Division.
Fortunately for them
there is two halves of a sea-
son and the two hope to
guide their teams into the
playoffs before moving up
in the system.
With the second half just
underway, the Kane County

Burlington.
A league title would be
great for either player but
its not the ultimate goal.

AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION-FIRST COAST

MARKET'S PRESENT TO THE

JACKSONVILLE ZOO WILL BE A LIFE SAVER!


At a press conference on Thursday, June 30, at 9:30
a.m. the American Heart Association (AHA) First Coast
Market's Vice President, Rebecca White, made a special,
"heart-felt" presentation to Jacksonville Zoo and Gar-
dens' Executive Director Tony Vecchio. An Automated
External Defibrillator (AED) was given to the Zoo for its
use in helping to save the lives of any of its visitors who
may experience heart-related emergencies. The AED was
donated to the AHA on behalf of a local family founda-
tion who wishes to remain anonymous.
"We are honored to help continue to protect the Jack-
sonville community for which we serve," stated White.
1 .i'cil.iiin donations such as this AED are a vital part
of the American Heart Association's mission to build
healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke."
The American Heart Association strongly encourages
large businesses and public facilities to establish AED
programs. With an AED program a person will be better
prepared to save the worker, friend, family member or
stranger. AEDs have helped save many lives. The goal of
every AED program is to deliver defibrillation to a sud-
den cardiac arrest within three-to-five minutes of col-
lapse.
The Zoo's security staff is well-trained in all first aid,
first responder and CPR. Previously, there was only one
AED located near at the Wildlife Carousel toward the
back of the Zoo. Having an AED at the front of the Zoo
will help shorten the time that help can be given and is
certain to result in more lives being saved.
"We are so grateful to the American Heart Association
for this special gift," said Vecchio. "With the Zoo contin-
uing to grow bigger and better every year, we expect the
attendance to continue to grow as well. And, with
700,000 plus visitors a year being the norm, we need to
be prepared to handle anything. This AED will be a very
important tool as we prepare to deal with any and all
emergencies."
For more than 96 years, the Jacksonville Zoo and Gar-
dens has been dedicated to inspiring discovery and ap-
preciation of wildlife through innovative experience in a
caring environment. Since its beginning in 1914, with an

SUMMER FARE: Experts


offer tips for perfect hot dogs


By Mike Pound
CNHI News Service
JOPLIN, Mo. - If
you're trying to come up
with something to spice up
the everyday hot dogs you
plan on fixing at your
Fourth of July cookout, you
might want to take a page
out of the Jason Miller hot
dog playbook.
"You should look at a hot
dog the way you look at a
steak and then go from
there," Miller said.
Miller says your options
when it comes to fixing a
hot dog are limitless and, to
be frank, when it comes to
hot dogs, Miller knows
how to cut the mustard.
Miller, along with his wife,
Suzanne, own Instant Kar-
ma Gourmet Hot Dogs.
Miller's fascination and
love of hot dogs really took
off while he was a strug-
gling art student living in
New York City. Because he
was on a tight budget, and
because he also worked in
the restaurant business in
New York to help make
ends meet, Jason soon be-
came a fan of the city's hot
dog tradition.
"In New York you can't
throw a cat and not hit a hot
dog stand," Miller said.
Early in his New York
days, Miller said he lived
near the famous Nathan's
Hot Dog restaurant and lat-
er lived near what became
his favorite hot dog place,
Grif Dogs.
"That was really the in-
spiration (for Instant Kar-
ma) to take a hot dog and
see how good it can be,"
Miller said.
What works for Miller at


Traditional condiments for a hot dog include ketchup, mustard and pickle relish.

Instant Karma can easily
work for the backyard
cook. With a little imagina-
tion there is no reason why
that basic hot dog on the
grill can't be transformed
into some extraordinary.
Like all things, the key to
a good hot dog starts with
the quality of the product.
Miller cautions that you
should never skimp on the
type of hot dog you choose
to slap on the grill.
"You should buy all-beef
hot dogs without a doubt,"
he said.
Perhaps the easiest way
to turn a plain hot dog on a
grill to something special is
to wrap the dog in bacon,
Miller says. If you would
like to ensure that the ba-
con cooks thoroughly on
the grill, you can partially
cook it in the microwave
before wrapping it around
the hot dog.


Besides giving the hot
dog a wonderful bacon fla-
vor, the bacon also helps
keep the hot dog moist
while it's on the grill.
Miller also suggests tak-
ing advantage of the season
when considering toppings
for your hot dog. Now is
the time, he said, to include
local homegrown favorites
like fresh tomatoes, lettuce
and locally grown herbs.
"Those things will be de-
licious on a hot dog,"
Miller said.
When it comes to the ac-
tual grilling of the hot dog,
Chris Orr, the owner of
Banned from the Ranch
Barbecue Catering, sug-
gests using indirect heat to
ensure the dogs are cooked
but not overcooked.
Because hot dogs are
technically already cooked
before they even go on the
grill, what you're really do-


ing is heating them, so Orr
suggests cooking the hot
dogs at 230 to 235 degrees.
"Some people like them
(cooked until they are)
black and that's fine. But
what you don't want to do
is cook them until they
burst and split," he said.
Orr also likes to add spe-
cial woods to his charcoal
to give the hot dogs a nice
smoky flavor. Pecan wood
chunks, for example, work
very well with beef hot
dogs, Orr said. Once the
dogs are done, Orr suggest
keeping them warm by set-
ting them in an aluminum
pan with just a little bit of
apple juice to keep them
from drying out.

Dog paralyzed in Joplin



tornado walking again


JOPLIN, Mo. - She weighs 30
pounds dripping wet and is old for a
cocker-chow mix, but "Sugar" wasn't
going to let 200 mph tornado winds
write her final chapter.
Her will to live and nerosurgery by
the University of Missouri College
of Veterinary Medicine to repair par-
alyzed hind legs has this fesity dog
well on the road to recovery nearly
seven weeks after her storm ordeal.
"This is just one story about a poor
little animal," said Daniel Leather-
man, the University of Missouri stu-
dent who brought Sugar in for
surgery. "But it is really representa-
tional about what's been going on in
Joplin."
It is an inspiring story.
Sugar was headed with Daniel's
parents, teachers Steve and Debbie
Leatherman, for a basement storm
shelter when Joplin's EF-5 tornado
struck May 22, bolting at the last
minute to her favorite hiding spot be-
neath an upstairs bed.
The tornado destroyed the
Leathermans home and no trace of
their pet dog -- until the next day
when a relative noticed a dog fitting
Sugar's description on the lost ani-
mal website list of the Joplin Hu-
mane Society.
It seems a storm volunteer found
Sugar trapped in a ditch several
blocks from the Leatherman home
and carried the dog to the pound for
medical care.
But when the Leathermens arrived


to claim Sugar, they were told no one
locally had the medical expertise to
save her.
That's when Daniel, who had
rushed home from college to help his
parents recover from the tornado,
sprang into action. He knew of the
reputation of the College of Veteri-
nary Medicine in Columbia, and
asked the officials there if they
would exmaine Sugar.
Yes, bring her here quickly, the
school replied.
That he did, and Sugar soon un-
derwent emergency surgery to fix a
swollen disk that was putting pres-
sure on the dog's spine, paralyzing
her back legs.
Six weeks of therapy and a lot of
love from the Leathermans and the
veterinary staff now has Sugar walk-
ing again, living the life of a celebri-
ty.
"When I brought her home, she
was used to the fancy canned and
wet dog foods," said Daniel. "All I
had was Kibbles 'n Bits. So she
looked at me as if to say, 'I don't
know if you know this or not, but I'm
famous.'"
Details for this story were provided
by the Joplin, Mo., Globe.

FSU BIOLOGIST DISCOVERS NEW PLANT


GENUS, SPECIES IN ST. JOHNS RIVER SAMPLE


Remarkable for their ex-
quisite, glass-like cell
walls in every imaginable
3-D shape and pattern -
and important for their role
as bio-indicators of water
quality -diatoms are the
predominant group of mi-
croscopic, single-celled al-
gae at the base of the
aquatic food chain.
For 35 million years or
more the prolific plants
have thrived in every
freshwater, brackish and
marine environment on
Earth. Scientists estimate
the number of diatom
species at anywhere from
10,000 to 10 million. Giv-
en the nearly impossible
task of discerning minus-
cule cell-wall differences


among them all using com-
monly available light-mi-
croscopy techniques, only
a fraction have been isolat-
ed and positively identi-
fied.
Now, make that a frac-
tion plus one.
Using a state-of-the-art
electron microscopy at
Florida State University,
FSU biologist Akshinthala
K.S.K. Prasad recently
identified a new diatom
genus and species, and he
didn't have to look far to
find it. He discovered the
novel diatom in a seven-
year-old sample of materi-
al that a colleague had col-
lected from the St. Johns
River in Northeast Flori-
da's Putnam County. Con-

sultations with internation-
al diatom experts helped to
confirm that what he was
seeing was something en-
tirely new at the genus lev-
el and undocumented at the
species level.
"Our discovery is both
exciting and humbling be-
cause it underscores what
we still don't know about
our aquatic environment,"
Prasad said.
"The St. Johns is not in
some far-off land," he said.
"It is a major medium-
sized river in the southeast-
ern United States and the
largest river in Florida in
both length and magnitude
of its drainage basin. Its bi-
ology has been monitored
by a variety of groups for a
number of years.
"And yet, suddenly, in
large numbers, a previous-
ly unrecognized plant form
appears."


And not just any form,
notes Prasad. This new di-
atom is part of an old plant
family that dates back to
the Mesozoic Era and
boasts one of the Earth's
most abundant, diverse and
biogeochemically active
lineages of photosynthetic
eukaryotes - organisms
whose cells contain com-
plex structures enclosed in
membranes.
In collaboration with
FSU doctoral alumnus
James A. Nienow, now a
biology professor at Val-
dosta (Ga.) State Universi-
ty, Prasad has named the
newfound diatom Liv-
ingstonia palatkaensis. The
designation honors
Prasad's longtime FSU re-
search colleague Professor
Emeritus Robert J. Liv-
ingston, an ecologist
whose grant funded an ear-
lier study that produced the


key St. Johns River sam-
ple. The name also recog-
nizes Palatka, Fla., the
town near the sample col-
lection site.
Prasad and Nienow de-
scribe the identification of
Livingstonia palatkaensis
in a paper published in the
journal Phycologia.
Both as fossils and living
organisms, diatoms are at-
tracting increasing atten-
tion from science and in-
dustry. The tiny plants re-
flect declining water quali-
ty, sometimes doing so
with algal blooms known
as red tides. They serve as
markers during oil explo-
ration, and in forensic in-
vestigations. They are used
in analyzing various eco-
logical problems such as
acidification and climate
change, both in freshwater
and marine environments.
Meanwhile, diatoms are


captivating casual ob-
servers and scientists alike
thanks to 21st-century
imaging techniques that re-
veal beautifully sculpted,
highly ornamented archi-
tectural designs in never-
before-seen detail.
"In these days of rapid
industrial changes and in-
evitable technological ad-
vancement," said Prasad,
"it is amazing to realize
that a large group of sin-
gle-celled plants have been
living in glass houses for at
least 35 to 40 million years
and still find this a success-
ful mode of existence."

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.


q 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
SH include trees, grasses and weeds.
Allergies can evoke a number of
symptoms:
* itchy eyes
* sneezing
* congestion
* headaches
* coughing
N * 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
- 1 with flowering plants triggers
symptoms or inhalation of dust
,..- from spring cleaning induces an
attack, the allergy culprit may
become more apparent.
*ida 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.

How STORY TIME PROVED THAT MAKING
HOUSE CALLS AREN'T FABLES AFTER ALL.

Bill always had a fondness for reading bedtime stories to his daughter.
As a Haven Hospice patient, he wanted to be home with his family.
So when it became too difficult to visit his doctor, our doctors made
house calls to Bill -just not during story time - so Bill could stay
right where he wanted to be, home.

Not what you'd expect from hospice care? Haven is different. At Haven,
we believe that Hospice is about living, not dying. We're Haven Hospice.
The stories of life live here. To learn more, visit havenstories.com.

We're here to help, 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
Haven Hospice has been honored with the Circle Of Life Award
for its high level of hospice care -and innovative programs.

Dear Classified Guys,
My dad was a collector. He filled his
house with stuff I can't imagine any-
one else would want. He had a 6-foot
stuffed blue marlin in the garage that
he didn't even catch. Then there
were the ten huge boxes of used
spark plugs, his bottle cap collection
and pail after pail of bent nails that
he vowed he would straighten one
day. Since he passed away last year,
I have to clean out his house. It's
completely packed, and I need to
decide whether to try and sell all his
things or just rent a dumpster and
throw them out. I mean who _
wants 42 years worth of : -
greeting cards that have ,
already been used? Any
suggestions you guys can offer
would be greatly appreciated.

Cash: Your Dad sounds like the type
of man who saw value in everything.
Unfortunately, that meant he probably
kept everything too!
Carry: Since it's your task to clean
out the house, it will probably involve
both selling some items and throwing
others out. It all depends on how much
time you want to dedicate to the task
and how many keepsakes you want to
save.

Cash: Cleaning a family member's
home can be an eye-opening experi-
ence. It's possible to learn a lot about a
person from what they left behind. So
while the process may seem over-
whelming, you could learn even more
about your father.
Carry: Start by setting aside items
that have emotional value to you or the
rest of your family like photos, letters or
other keepsakes.
Cash: Since your Dad was a collec-
tor, there may be many items in the
house that have value. Although you
may not appreciate the bottle cap col-
lection or stuffed blue marlin, someone
else may want to purchase them. You


never know who needs a collection of
old used spark plugs!
Carry: Consider putting the unwant-
ed items at a yard sale. Maybe your
Dad knew how valuable all that stuff
V ,IfkT ,ill
Cash: Try advertising the large items
like cars, appliances or furniture in the
classified section. You don't need to
wait for the yard sale to get started. In
fact, it sounds like the added room
would be helpful to your process.
Carry: You can also donate useful
items to a local charity. For everything
else, you'll probably need that dumpster.
Unless, of course, you want to mount
the 6-foot fish above your fireplace!


Piled High
Clutter, Junk, Stuff; it goes by a lot of
names, but in the end it is nothing more
than items we don't throw away. And if
you're one of those people, you're not
alone. Experts estimate that over 3 mil-
lion Americans never throw anything
away, including old newspapers or even
empty yogurt containers. Although the
reasons for this are not completely
known, researchers believe that the need
to hoard is directly linked to the part of
the brain that controls decision-making
and problem solving. Whatever the rea-
son, it seems many of us need to clean
out the house.
Support in Numbers
\\ '"i. - I II . id of support groups like
Alcoholic Anonymous or Narcotics
Anonymous, but did you know there is an
organization called Clutters Anonymous?
The group is dedicated to helping people
clean out their lives by attacking the
physical, emotional and spiritual aspects
that cause us to collect unnecessary
items. Like many other support groups,
they even have a 12-step program.
Today the organization has chapters
throughout cities and states nationwide.

Dead Weight
At our last garage sale, my husband
put out a large bucket of used rusty
nails. When he labeled it $4, we told
him it would never go. All morning we
razzed him about selling the bucket of
nails, and with each joke, he became
more determined to prove us wrong.
Sure enough, around 3 o'clock a gen-
tleman came and looked at the bucket
of nails. He picked it up as if to feel its
weight and then walked over to our
checkout table.
"I'll take it," he said handing us the
money.
Instantly my husband cheered, "I
told you someone would want those
nails!"
"Oh I don't want the nails," the man
said as he dumped them on the table.
"I'm just going to take the bucket!"
(Thanks to Franny P.)

Wrestling continues its
Summer Slamarama Tour
with two huge events Fri-
day, July 8 in Gainesville

stis. Along with all the ex-
citing in-ring action that
fans love, these two shows
will also feature a meet-
and-greet autograph session
with Monday Night RAW
Superstar John Morrison
and WWE Diva Melina. In
addition, there will be 8 big
matches including Divas in
action, a Superstar singing
competition, an interactive
Fan Fest starting at 6:30
p.m. and hosted by FCW
Superstar Briley Pierce,
with autograph stages,
photo ops, games, contest,
free in-ring picture with
Florida Champion Bo Ro-
tundo, appearance by Bud-
dy's Home Furnishings
Mascot with prizes and
more. If that wasn't
enough, each fan will also
receive a complimentary
pack of FCW Superstar
trading cards.
Stars from WWE's NXT
will be featured, as well as
the current crop of FCW su-
perstars. For almost fifty
years, FCW has been the
gold standard in profession-
al wrestling in the state of
Florida. FCW is the official
developmental territory for

ment entity WWE, meaning

Rio, Sheamus, Dolph Zig-
gler, Drew McEntyre, Evan
Bourne, Kofi Kingston,

many more-- all got their
start at FCW.
"This is a big weekend,"


John Morrison admits, as
he adjusts his trademark
sunglasses. "Fans that live
in the area get to see me
twice." He laughs. "In all
seriousness, though, this is
great because usually you
have to wait months and
months for WWE or FCW
to come to your town, but
this weekend you get it
twice
Steve Keirn, President


and CEO of Florida Cham-
pionship Wrestling, is
thrilled about the huge
weekend. "My only con-
cern," Keirn says, as he
thoughtfully scratches his
head, "will we have
enough room for all the
MoFo's?" MoFo, of
course, is the familiar nick-
name for a John Morrison
fan. "Nah, I'm only play-
ing. We're nothing but ex-


cited to have John and
Melina here. You better
show up early if you want
to meet them meet".

tion Friday Night at the

e t U the lrWhite Wine Sausage Bath







with GOURMETGR LL NG


FAMILY FEATURES

While it's hard to resist the delicious aroma of food sizzling
on the grill, few people associate the backyard barbecue with
gourmet greatness. As the flames heat up this summer, you
can single-handedly alter that perception by introducing a
new element of flavor - Italian sausage.
A close cousin to the bratwurst, versatile Italian sausage offers a flavorful
alternative with a unique blend of herbs and spices. Available in a variety of
seasonings and flavors - such as Johnsonville's Mild, Sweet or Hot Italian
Sausage Links - savory Italian sausage can serve as the foundation of wide
array of dishes.
Served on a bun, as a main course or as an ingredient in a prepared entree,
Italian sausage can take you from basic grill to brilliant gourmet with no
extra fuss.
A bath is an excellent - and simple - method for layering in unexpected
flavors -.- ii i li n sausage Ili a - ill make your guests wonder what other
culinary secrets you have hidden away. For example, Johnsonville's White
Wine Sausage Bath combines the sophisticated overtones of wine with fresh
herbs and veggies for an unexpectedly gourmet grill entree.
Or, if your tastes lean more toward the traditional flavors of the summertime
grill, try Summertime Kabobs or Italian Burgers - they're new and unexpected
ways to appreciate old favorites.
The kabobs blend peppers and onions with the juicy pop of Italian sausage,
the sweet tang of pineapple and an unexpected touch of ripe black olives. Or,
combine ground Italian sausage with your beef and a few special ingredients
for a bolder, better burger.
Serve these dishes with a simple tossed garden salad and a chilled wine or
icy microbrew, and sit back while your friends and family marvel at the new
master of the grill.
Before you get started, consider these tips to make the most of your sausage
grilling experience:


* Avoid utensils such as forks,
which can puncture the
sausage and allow flavorful
juices to escape.

m Keep all your food safe and
flavorful by using one set of
tongs to place raw meat on
the grill and different tongs
to turn meat that is already
cooking, as well as any side
dishes, such as vegetables,
that you may be grilling at
the same time.
m Grill sausages at a low to
medium-low heat, cooking
slowly to keep the meat
moist and flavorful.
m Maintain the same tempera-
ture on the outside and inside
of the sausage. Meat should
be cooked through with
no pink showing, and a
thermometer should read
160�F when your sausage
is done.
