Meanwhile, the Suwannee County Chamber of Commerce has decided to poll its members to determine if they should take a stand on the issue. “The board voted to find out what the membership felt,” said Dennis Cason of the Chamber, who is also the president of the Suwannee County Economic Alliance, which is the umbrella agency for not only the chamber but also the local Tourism Development Council, Council for Progress and the Development Authority. There are about 350 members that make up the Chamber of Commerce. Cason said the Chamber sent out postcards to each member asking them if the Chamber should support going wet or not. He said each postcard was assigned a number on it that determines who the member is for confidentiality. Tim Alcorn, chairman of the Development Authority Board, said that board will support the county going wet “strictly for economic reasons.” “If we can drag some people off that interstate, they may want to buy a newspaper, they may want to stop for a nice meal, then that’sDevelopment Authority supports going wetWillie Sharp places his absentee ballot into a ballot box Thursday at the Suwannee County Supervisor of Elections Office in Live Oak.

Suwannee DemocratServing Suwannee County Since 1884 SuwanneeCounty Part of “The Original Florida” By Stephenie Livingstonstephenie.livingston@ gaflnews.comDebates continue to swirl around the proposed county manager form of government for Suwannee County, mainly focusing on advertising for the position. At an April commission meeting, Commissioner Phil Oxendine proposed the county advertise for a county manager based onCounty manager talks continue Board to meet Oct. 5 to discuss matter fullyprevious discussions by the board to look into moving toward that form of government. Oxendine, along with Commissioner Wesley Wainwright, have said they feel advertising would be best to find the most qualified for the job. Going to a county manager form of government would require the board to eliminate the title of county coordinator, and for the board to write a new job description for the person. County Coordinator Joe Gerrity said he won’t apply for the position if advertised because he was not under the impression that commissioners intended to advertise to begin with. Gerrity’s assurance that he will not apply for the position if it is advertised has added to concerns by some commissioners that converting to a county manager form of government would cause too much disruption. Gerrity stood his ground Thursday. “I’m still not interested if they advertise for it,” he said. By law, the county doesn’t have to advertise before hiring a county manager. Thus far, county commissioners have taken no action on the matter. They voted Tuesday night to meet Oct. 5 at 9 a.m. at the Live Oak Passenger Depot to discuss the matter further. Commission Chairman Jesse Caruthers said Wednesday he is no longer in favor of the change as long as there is discussion on the table to advertise the position instead of hiring SEE COUNTY, PAGE 11A LOTTERYRESULTS CASH 3 7/20/11. 7,9,9 . . . 7.6.2 PLAY 4 7/20/11 .4,5,7,3 . . . .4,3,3,0 FANTASY 5 7/20/11. . . . . 22,27,31,32,36 MEGA MONEY 8,17,35,41 MB 14 LOTTO . . . 5,8,12,18,31,36, x4 POWERBALL . . . 1,4,38,40,42, . . . . . . . . . .

ALL BY APPOINTMENT ONLY 501 SE DRANE STREET BRANFORD, FL SAME LOCATION FOR OVER 5 YEARS!!670979hdV 681231amv There’s a big barbecue festival coming up at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP) this Friday and Saturday. But, before that, one of the top competitors in Florida and a world champion held school last weekend to teach others how to make the best barbecue and most importantly, how to win on this huge barbecue circuit that runs nationwide. Winter Haven school teacher Rob “Rub” Bagby of the Swamp Boys Championship BBQ Team teaches his techniques and knowledge from time to time so others can jump into the world of championship barbecuing. And there’s always a lot of folks chomping at the bit to give it a whirl! At the SOSMP July 1516, Bagby, who got the nickname “Rub” when someone forgot his first name when introducing him and just called Rob “Rub,” taught about a dozen folks how to perfectly barbecue just about everything imaginable from chicken to brisket. Some of those students will return to the SOSMP this weekend, including Bagby, to compete among 45 professional barbecue teams for more than $13,000 in cash and prizes during the 3rd Annual Smokin' On The Suwannee BBQ Festival. The professional barbecue contest is sanctioned by the Florida BBQ Association. Bagby says he began cooking at an early age. “I began cooking at age 4 beside my mama,” he points out while teaching his class. He’s come a long way since that time, regularly cooking every Friday morning for folks at the school where he teaches and jumping into barbecue competition in 2003. Since then Bagby has served on the Florida Barbecue Association’s board in almost every position, including president. Bagby is hoping he’ll be among the winners this weekend. Festival goers are hoping those barbecuing will have lots of extras so visitors may purchase plates full of some of the best barbecue in the world! Bagby is often among the winners…he won seven state-wide championships in 2009 which qualified him to compete in the prestigious Jack Daniels World Championship Invitational BBQ contest in Lynchburg, Tennessee. Yep, you guessed it, he won the worldwide championship in pork right there in Tennessee! You might say he can easily use the words “professional” and “champion” after his name anytime! Stop by Swamp Boys Championship BBQ’s bright red cooking trailer and say hello “Rub” will probably be busy getting his entries ready but he might just wave at you as he’s checking his chicken, Boston butts or other entries. Of course, there’ll be dozens of vendors ready to let you purchase some of their good ole Southern barbecue! Tickets to this weekend’s festival are $2 at the gate.Swamp Boys barbecue school teaches how to compete at big eventsThis school included lots of tasting that good ole Southern barbecue Barbecue school teacher Robe "Rub" Bagby, right, teaches students in his July 15-16 school how to plate their entries during co mpetition.Photos: Courtesy Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park Students at the Swamp Boys Championship BBQ Team School held at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park July 15-16 listen and watch intently as teacher Rob "Rub" Bagby, right, teaches them how to determine when a Boston butt is just right for the judges during competitions.

You may also contact the SOSMP to inquire about any of the many exciting events coming up this year at the SOSMP such as the 311 Pow Wow, Blackwater Music Festival, Labor day Weekend Get-A-Way, Bear Creek Music and Art Festival and much, much more. The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park is located at 3076 95th Drive 4.5 miles north of Live Oak, Fla. off US 129 at the famous Suwannee River. The park is 4.5 miles south of Interstate 75 and 4.5 miles north of Interstate 10 off US 129. Keep an eye out for the SOSMP sign and white painted board fence.

They say that they don't want any in Live Oak. Well, people for your information, like it or not, these trees are already here. My husband and I took a ride through town, Ohio Avenue and Howard St., and counted 185 Palm Trees as far as we could see on both sides of the road. So quit complaining...what if there are a few more...just shut-up about it and enjoy them!! I'm delighted to see that the Live Oak police are FINALLY stopping speeders. I've been waiting years to see this happen! It will definitely slow down the accident rate and the death rate. But I have a suggestion for you police persons: Hide your car back away from the street because I can see you from 6 blocks away and slow down in time to avoid being caught. Then I can speed up when I get out of your range. If you really want to help me slow down, catch me when I'm not looking, give me a ticket that I have to pay my hard-earned money for, and that will make me think twice! To those who support Suwannee county being dry and are worried about alcoholism, loose morals, and crime...have any of you ever gone inside the big national retail store that shall remain nameless? Every time I'm in there a lot of the women the way they dress look like they just got off working at a strip joint...the amount of jailhouse tattoos literally blinds me. For a county full of churches which prides itself on wholesome Christian values I find it ironic this area is surrounded by prisons and the arrests each week for alcohol and drug related offenses are mind-blowing with regards to its small population. Upon reading last week’s Rant-n-Rave regarding the teacher having to contribute 3% towards his fancy retirement, I thought “what a crock.” Let’s see, you are wallowing in the public trough, not contributing a single penny towards a lucrative retirement and are now complaining because the state is requiring YOU to contribute to YOUR retirement. What a joke. News flash! Those of us in the private sector have to contribute 100% towards our retirement. We don’t have the luxury of requiring the citizenry to pay increased taxes and assessments to meet our retirement needs. Get a clue. Hopefully in the near future, your contribution will increase and our contribution on your behalf with decrease. Welcome to reality. This is regarding the upcoming vote to bring Suwannee County back into the present by lifting the ban on liquor sales. I've read the comments from those against it saying that this is not a religious issue and I say that is untrue. Recently,when I told a coworker who is very much against the measure that the Democrat announced we have enough petitions signed to put it to a vote, the first thing he said was "Time to rally up the churches" to vote against it. If you support this progress, when it comes time to vote, please vote. Make your voice heard because there are a whole lot of people being told every Sunday to vote against it. And unfortunately in our county many of our polling places are in the very churches that are so strongly against this measure. VOTE SUWANNEE YES!!!!! This is a small statement from a public employee to any non-public employee who feels that (I contribute to my retirement, so they can to). If I pay into my retirement like most in the private sector, then pay me what I would make in the private sector. $35 phr vs $15 phr. Afford me the ability to strike for better terms. Public employee's benefits (Retirement, medical, etc.) are the reason most of us graciously accept our meager pay. Our Governor, Rick Scott, quoted last week, "I commend Florida's Law Enforcement Officers for standing strong each day against crime throughout our state. Thanks to them, Florida's crime rate is at a 40 year low. We must always remember that our Law Enforcement Officers put their lives on the line every day, and we owe them a debt of gratitude". I totally agree with him and think that maybe the Sheriff should put comments like this once in a while in the Suwannee Democrat thanking his guys for all they do in this county and making them feel more appreciated. I have lived in Suwannee County for many, many years and have to say that I am truly ashamed to tell others I live here. There will never be any growth in this town because you have the same “people” trying to run it and keep it a quiet little redneck community. I am trying really hard to move my family out of Live Oak so that my children will have many more options and opportunities. I will continue to pray for Live Oak. That picture for God & Country day says it all for seperation of church & state. 2 females, no blacks or hispanics, bunch of rich old white dudes with all the money & power and they ain't giving up neither till their dying breath. Regular good old boy convention. That's what's keeping this place stagnant & your paying them big bucks to do it. Before the ancients understood the naturally occuring process of fermentation it was considered a divine gift allowing storage, transport, trade and nutrition. Prior to refrigeration this was a real blessing in an arid disease ridden land. It also enabled other food stuffs to be cured in wine because of the alcohol content. Beer was quite literally liquid bread. Trichinosis was the very real basis for the ban on swine, so let's shut down bbq pits. How about greed, pride, & a lust for power? Looks like we pick & choose our sinnin' round here. & Rant Rave OUR VIEW Suwannee Democrat Suwannee DemocratMYRA C. REGAN Publisher JEFF WATERS Editor A note to the organizations of the Suwannee County Economic Alliance To Chamber of Commerce members: Your board of directors has decided to poll each of you via a postcard mailing on whether to support going wet or to stay dry. When you receive your postcard, which should be arriving shortly we ask you to think hard on it. We are told the postcards won’t have any business names on them so your decision will be confidential. Don’t take this lightly. Check your mailbox, if you don’t receive a postcard soon, contact the Chamber. Let the board of directors know how you feel about this issue by making your mark on the postcard. The deadline to return the postcard is July 29, we’re told. Our view is that the Chamber of Commerce should stand behind this issue and support going wet for economic reasons. According to the Chamber’s website, suwanneechamber.com, the Chamber “works to encourage growth, increase tourism and support local attractions and events.” Is this not one of those times to work toward encouraging growth and to increase tourism? To the Development Authority: Kudos to you for supporting Suwannee County going wet. We have the potential of an unforetold amount of tax revenue that could come here thanks to travelers on Interstate 10 looking for a rest, or stopping to visit. To the Tourist Development Council and Council for Progress: This is an issue that concerns you. Your name states your goal. We also want increased tourism and all the tools we can to attract and keep businesses.Members of the Suwannee Democrat editorial board are Myra C. Regan, publisher, and Jeff Waters, editor. Our View is formed by that board.Take a standPlease address letters to: Letters to the editor, Suwannee Democrat, PO Box 370, Live Oak, FL 32064.

ONLINEOPPORTUNITY QUESTION OF THE WEEKPoll Results(7-15-11)Yes -75% No -25%YesNo Do you support Suwannee County going wet?To the Editor: May 21, 2011 was a very unusual day. My sister and I along with some of our aunts, uncles, and cousins were traveling to Orlando to see a play. My brother in-law was heading to Tallahassee to watch a Florida State baseball game. And it was also the day that a group of people had predicted the end of the world. All of us traveled safely to our destinations and were in contact via text messaging during our trips. At 6:00 PM, Facebook and text messages were lit up with, “We made it!” or “Still here!”. Was it all a joke, or did they just get the time wrong? From my viewpoint, somebody got the time wrong because for me and my family, the world as we know it ended when our Gary was involved in a fatal car accident. The news was devastating to us. Gary Edwards passed away the next morning, and with his passing came an outpouring of love and support from this community that I have never before witnessed. Moment after moment we were touched and comforted by the loving, generous citizens in our community and across the state, and we so appreciate every act of kindness extended to us and every prayer that was said. As close as I was to my brother-in-law, I never knew that he meant so much to so many families. The memories everyone has shared have been comforting and uplifting. These two months have been long and emotionally draining for me, his wife, his daughters, his mother, his brother and sister, his mother-in-law, and his friends. It is still unbelievable! But with the strength that only God can provide, and the support of family and friends, we are trying hard to get used to this new way of life. You have all mourned Gary’s passing along with us, but unfortunately because of the publicity of this horrible circumstance, Gary’s death has become a part of the Wet/Dry issue in Suwannee County. Gary’s death was caused by drunk driver. It was a criminal act that we have to live with daily. Gary’s death was tragic accident. A tragedy that we have to relive every time someone uses Gary’s passing as a reason to support or not support making Suwannee County a wet county. I ask that you sympathize with and consider Gary’s family when you write letters, or call in to Rant and Rave about the Wet/Dry issue. This is a political and economical issue. We as a family have decided how we are going to vote, and we hope that every other family in the county does the same. Again, on behalf of Gary’s family, thank you for your kindness and acts of sympathy and love. Rhoshonda Herring To the Editor: Prohibition doesn't work! The first 'war' against drugs, against alcohol was called off quickly after Franklin Roosevelt was elected in 1932, in large part because because it proved to be so incredibly counter-productive, driving up consumption, increasing drug availability and potency (turning beer drinkers to whiskey, etc.), generating massive criminal enterprises, and corrupting police forces. The so-called "unintended consequences" of alcohol prohibition proved to be far more damaging than the drug itself had been without prohibition, but subject to various degrees of restraint by custom and morals. Some say many churches may have profited off of their member's illicit 'moon shine' and 'rum-running' operations in the South, for example. Suwanee county really needs to grow economically and mature socially ---and show that it has learned lessons from our county's jaded history. Vote "YES" on August 16th.

Food products covered in this law are considered not potentially hazardous foods. Before this law came into place, the Florida Statute 500 did not allow anyone to prepare, process, serve, hold or sell food from their private residence. This new legislation is a result of the work of the Small Farms subcommittee appointed by the Florida Food Safety and Food Defense Advisory Council in 2010 that reviewed the laws and permits that affect small farmers in Florida. Cottage food products covered in this law are listed in the table below. Although not all inclusive, it provides for most types of approved cottage food products. Loaf breads, rolls, biscuits Cakes, pastries and cookies Candies and confections Fruit pies Jams, jellies and preserves Dried fruits Dry herbs, seasonings and mixtures Homemade pasta Cereals, trail mixes and granola Coated or uncoated nuts Vinegar and flavored vinegars Popcorn, popcorn balls What Cottage Foods are not allowed? Fresh or dried meat or meat products including jerky Canned fruits, vegetables, vegetable butters, salsas etc. Fish or shellfish products Canned pickled products such as corn relish, pickles, sauerkraut Raw seed sprouts Bakery goods which require any type of refrigeration such as cream, custard or meringue pies and cakes or pastries with cream cheese icings or fillings Milk and dairy products including hard, E XT ENSION UPDA T E New Cottage Law enables potential home owner business opportunitiessoft and cottage cheeses and yogurt Cut fresh fruits and/ or vegetables. Juices made from fresh fruits or vegetables Ice and/or ice products Barbeque sauces, ketchups and/or mustards Foccaccia-style breads with vegetables and/or cheeses What does the Cottage Food Law say? Gross sales for a cottage food operation must not exceed $15,000 annually.

Paul tells us in Galatians 5:22-26 we are to produce fruit of the Spirit. Things like love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness-just to name a few. As we grow as Christians we should produce more fruit. 3) Have A Christian Attitude: Paul mentions in Philippians 2:5 that we are to have the mind [attitude] of Christ.

Hope of salvation springs eternal if we can be freed of this terrible political machine. God & Country day looked a lot like a political campaign hosted by a church & with the exception of Mr. Cameron, not one of those people will get a vote from me. Non-alcoholic sacrament, it wasn't wine at all? Then the scripture & my mainstream 1,000+ yr. old faith is wrong? Some lunkhead could say the disciples smoked crack, but that don't make it gospel! We got that old crook Charlie Wrangel invoking Christ in the debt limit thing, Michelle Bachman's hubby is peddling miracles to gays & 2 ultra rich mormons are running for president. Any one else see a problem here? Maybe the Pastsfarians (that's spelled right) got the idea right cause this ain't what the creator had in mind. Where does religion become just another powerful addiction & political ploy? Faith is a good thing, this kinda stuff is not. This is concerning the Jarvis Hall lawsuit. I would like to know who or what group complained about Mrs. Hall speaking on the Constitution of the United States. It should be near and dear to everyone in this country. Thank you. I have several concerns. Partly, Officer Edwards unfortunately was killed in an accident, on May 21, an accident. It is an accident that his family is having to deal with very publicly that most families don’t have to do. Most families don’t have to deal with this as a public issue. Officer Edwards fell, a servant to this this community as a law enforcement officer. It is unfair to his loved ones, that the people of this community are using his accident and death as an issue for keeping Suwannee County Dry. That is a personal situation, whether you buy alcohol or not and now it will be the people’s vote. Let your decision be made by what your family’s believes. But, please leave the Edwards’ family out of your decision making. His death was an accident. Had he been killed by a shooter, it would have been the shooter that caused his death, not the gun. Thank you. See Letter to the Editor, Page 6A. I firmly believe that the “Vote No” people have every right in the world to advertise the fact that they want us to vote No, but they are putting their signs on the public right of ways, which is against the law in the state of Florida. They are on federal highways right of ways, which is against the law, they are on state highways right of ways, which is against the law, and they are on City property, which should be against the law if it isn’t, it should be. You are not supposed to have any political advertising on public property in the state of Florida. But the “Vote No” people seem to put all their signs on public property. Maybe no one wants to give them permission to put them on their private property. Could be. So be it. Bye. I use the garbage disposal pickup place on route 51 since the first day it was opened. The present attendant is by far the best every they’ve had. He is timely, neat and organized and the signs say, please, do not dump in certain places, which is much more polite than the grumpy caller last week. 1. Rave Congratulations and appreciation to the downtown store owners who have restored the fronts of their buildings. It looks great. This citizen appreciates your contribution to the attractiveness of downtown. 2. Rant To the Democrat : When I want local/state news, I subscribe to the Democrat (which I do). When I want a Bible study, I go to the church of my choice. The lengthy Bible exposition by a county official in a recent issue of the Democrat was inappropriate for the newspaper to print! 3. Rave Thanks to the City Council and the County Commissioners who have provided funding for the Suwannee County Historical Commission to paint the outside of the old train freight station. The restoration of Old City Hall, the Depot, and the Freight building is a wonderful addition to downtown. It is a testimony to our leaders desire to preserve our historic district. Continued From Page 6A & Rant Rave By Jeffry Boatright During the general business discussion of the July 19 Suwannee County Commission meeting, the Commissioners proposed to raise the fire protection assessment rate. The panel also proposed to leave the solid waste assessment rates as they are for the 2011-12 fiscal year. The fire protection assessment increase, if finalized, will increase from $39.02 to $45.91 per household annually. This will be the first time since implementing the fire protection assessment nearly a decade ago that the rate has increased, according to Commission chairman Jesse Caruthers.County fire rate increase proposed

A DECISION on the proposed CAPITAL OUTLAY TAXES will be made at this hearing683545amv Gerrity, which he feels would make the transition more seamless. Commissioner Ivie Fowler said by phone Thursday that he’s leaning toward not supporting the idea anymore either for the same reasons. “The problem is the games some are playing to try and get rid of Joe,” said Fowler. “They also want to lower the standard from having a college degree to a high school education. There’s one thing Suwannee County doesn’t need in management is dumbing down.” Resident and former county commissioner Doug Udell asked the board Tuesday to reconsider the proposed change in government. He said the potential change is concerning to residents of Suwannee County. “The perception is that you are customizing, or tailoring, a job for a specific person and that is something that we the public don’t like,” he said. The county manager position would involve a more extensive job description and invest more authority over department heads in the position holder. However, the county manager would still answer to the wishes of the board. Caruthers said it is a common misconception locally that the county manager would be all powerful and take authority away from the Commission. Nevertheless, Udell said he is concerned that installing a county manager would create a divide between the public and commissioners, resulting in commissioners becoming less available to the public. “I want to talk to you, not a county manager,” Udell said during Tuesday's meeting. “If there’s something I want to talk about in my county, I go to (my commissioner).” Property Appraiser Lamar Jenkins, who was present at the meeting, believes county commissioners are using the new position to brush off their duties onto someone else. “I voted for my county commissioner, if I can’t talk to my county commissioner as individualthat’s not right,” he said by phone Thursday. “It sounds to me like the county commissioners don’t want to do their job, they want to give it to someone else.”County manager talks continue Continued From Page 2A Georgia and Guilford County in North Carolina. Suwannee County Commission chairman Jesse Caruthers said the company will locate where they can for the least amount of money, but noted the county is looking at options such as a tax abatement. Caruthers said NSP is requesting an 80 percent tax abatement. Dennis Cason, president of the Suwannee County Economic Alliance, feels that NSP is leaning toward coming to Suwannee County but they are awaiting information from other locations. “It looks promising,” he added. According to Cason, the 80 percent tax abatement that NSP has requested seems to be the only thing they are looking at for Suwannee County to offer. The Chamber is working with the Commission on this matter, considering the likely increase in land values wherever NSP locates, Cason said. According to Gerrity, as many as 6,000 acres in the awarded community could be utilized for the solar farm. Gerrity added that up to 600 acres per farm might be involved and the selected community for the solar farm could see up to 10 farms involved. The landmark project could potentially create 400 jobs during the fiveyear construction phase and land up to 120 permanent jobs for the selected community. The solar farm could generate enough power to serve roughly 32,000 homes.

Sheriff’s reports said McCloud shot one man in the side of his upper thigh before firing at a second person and grazing him on his left ankle. McCloud fired at, but missed, a third person as all three victims fled the scene. Authorities said five shots were fired by McCloud. “From what I could tell, as far as motive, is that these guys were texting back and forth just wanting to fight,” Suwannee County Sheriff Chief Deputy Ron Colvin told the Democrat last August. McCloud was originally charged with two counts of aggravated battery with a firearm, one count of aggravated assault with a firearm and possession of a firearm with an altered serial number. McCloud was sentenced on a plea agreement that resulted in 30 months of prison time, according to court documents. He was adjudicated guilty and his charges were lowered to one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon from aggravated battery with a firearm. He was also ordered to pay over $2,000 in court costs, fines, attorney’s fees and a battery fee. McCloud was taken into custody following the proceedings.Man gets 30 months DOCContinued From Page 1A count of lewd or lascivious battery: penetration or union, Suwannee County Jail records show.

There was no intention of firing,” said Commissioner Clyde Fleming, who initiated the kill vote. “This got blown out of proportion and it never should have came to this.” The custodial department currently consists of five full-time employees and two casual employees. The annual budget for the department is $317,010. County Coordinator Joe Gerrity said that if the department is privatized, then $54,000 for contracted services such as pest control and floor cleanings wouldCUSTODIAL PRIVATIZATION A DEAD ISSUEContinued From Page 1A be left in the budget as well as the amount needed to pay the private custodial company. “We are very loyal, faithful workers,” custodial head crew leader Helen Stoudemire told the Democrat earlier this month. “I’ve been here 23 years and I have some custodians who have been here 10.” Commissioner Wesley Wainwright defended his position and suggestion to look into privatizing custodial services. Wainwright said it concerns him that employees of the county are not evaluated on a regular basis. In an effort to look at custodial services from an objective point of view, Wainwright said he suggested looking into contracting those duties as a way to confirm that the job is not only being done well physically, but financially and efficiently, too. “I wanted to get a measuring stick to see how we’re doing,” he said. Wainwright said Tuesday evening that it was not his intention to see hard working employees let go. “My intent was to find out how good we are doing. Where the issue of firing came in, I do not know,” he said. President of the local NAACP Sam Beasley told the board he was appreciative of their decision to not advertise for bids. Board Chairman Jesse Caruthers told those present that there are no plans to revisit the issue of privatizing custodial services anytime soon.

"This is another benefit we offer our readers and online followers. This willgive them highlights of their favorite SEC teams soon after each game is played," said Democrat Publisher Myra Regan. As part of the Affiliate Network, Suwannee Democrat received a digital video player called the SEC Video Zone, which now resides on the sports section of suwanneedemocrat.com The SEC Video Zone provides fans and site visitors with free access to a full range of SEC game highlights for a variety of sports.

Our pitching and defense was solid most of the tournament; only giving up 8 hits in 26 innings of play and Kelsey [Parlato] was a wall behind the plate. I only remember two balls getting past her all week, said coach Jennifer Watson.” Suwannee then faced Ocala in the winner’s bracket. Ocala used a 4 hit 5 run second inning to beat Suwannee 5-1 dropping Suwannee to the loser’s bracket and advancing Ocala in the winner’s bracket. Suwannee had bases loaded twice and runners on base every inning except the 5th but could only scratch 1 run across when Takema West scored for Suwannee in the seventh. “Ocala is a very good team. They were very disciplined at the plate, had good pitching, solid defense and were coached well. It was the game I circled on the bracket thinking the winner would be in great shape for the state title and that proved to be true. Unfortunately, we only lost one inning to them (2nd) where they had 4 hits, a walk, and we made an error which allowed them to score the 5 runs. They didn’t get a hit before or after that inning, said Watson.” Then the rain came. Every time Suwannee was ready to play it started raining, canceling their games two straight days. “It just seemed like every time we got to the park for our game it started raining and I believe that kept us a little off balance, said Watson.” Next up for Suwannee was Oviedo. Kelsey Parlato led the game off with a double and Deni Allen followed with a single scoring Parlato which gave Suwannee a 1-0 lead. The game stayed that way in a pitcher’s dual until the bottom of the sixth where Suwannee started picking it up. Sajada Burkett led off with a hit and then a stolen base. Haejin Choe followed with a single scoring Burkett. Emily Watson grounded to third scoring Choe on an infield RBI giving Suwannee a 3-0 lead. Lacee Giddens singled while Kaitlyn Rogers and Takema West both drew back to back walks. With bases loaded and one out, the rain came again suspending the game as well as Suwannee’s momentum. When the game finally resumed Oviedo got the next two batters out, stranding Giddens, Rogers, and West on base. Oviedo scratched a run across in the seventh before Suwannee ended the threat on a strike out. “This was a too close for comfort game. Oviedo didn’t get a hit until the seventh inning but it was a 1-0 game until we scored 2 in the sixth. We had eight hits but could only manufacture 3 runs. Hats off to Oviedo, they played well defensively and pitched well, said Watson.” Kelsey Parlato waiting on a run.

See more photos, Page 3B. By Corey Daviscorey.davis@gaflnews.comLIVE OAK-Suwannee High football celebrates its 86th season this year, having started in 1926. This reporter has been researching the history of all four area schools and has come across many interesting stories. I am still in need of help of schedules and scores from several years, the attached chart shows some of what I have found and still need. In 1939, Suwannee went undefeated in the regular season 10-0, coach Charles Duncan searched for a team that would be willing to face Suwannee in a bowl game and the coach had difficulty finding one. “We couldn’t find anybody in the state that would play us,” Kent Baldwin (former Suwannee player from 1936-1940) told the Democrat in 1996. “Coach Kirkman of Robert E. Lee in Jacksonville said he didn’t want to because, ‘If I won I couldn’t brag about beating a little town like Live Oak and if I lost I’d never hear live it down.” “Other powerhouses from Miami and Hillsborough County (Tampa) also refused to face Suwannee.” Finally Nutley, NJ agreed to play Suwannee at Florida Field at the University of Florida in Gainesville for a game and knocked off Suwannee 137. Legendary high school football coach Gene Cox (313-100-5 overall), the state’s all-time winningest coach (recently passed by Bolles coach Corky Rogers), coached briefly at Suwannee for two years. According to a 2006 story, in 1961 Cox, born and raised in Lake City, came to coach football at Suwannee and quickly changed his allegiance when he got here. "I always had a real close connection to Live Oak," Cox said. "But always from the other side. Both years I coached Live Oak, we beat Lake City."

FRIDAY, JULY 22, 2011 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 2BSPORTS 683079RAV seasons, but in the 1962 season Cox really left his mark. That was the only undefeated, untied season in the history of Suwannee football. "That was before the playoffs," Cox said. "Everyone then that went undefeated were claiming to be state champions." They didn't have the playoff system in 1962, but they did have bowl games. Suwannee played Daytona Sea Breeze in 1962 in the Peach Bowl and clobbered them 30-0 to cap the season. Suwannee had other undefeated seasons previously, but lost the bowl game. Growing up in Lake City, Cox played football against Live Oak. He remembers one game in 1950 in which Live Oak beat his Lake City team. Suwannee's big All-American tackle, Jimmy Hatch, was swapped to fullback for that one game. "We couldn't tackle him," Cox said. "The older people in Lake City still talk about that game. When Live Oak beat Lake City, it caused Lake City to lose the championship that year to Leon." Cox went on to coach football for 28 years at Leon High in Tallahassee, where he became a legend, winning two state championships and sending more than 100 of his players into the college ranks. Cox was known for being a hard-nosed, no-nonsense kind of coach. He accepted nothing short of the best his players had. He pushed his players with tough conditioning drills and practice routines. He wore his players out in three-a-days and then stayed after to study game films. His assistants, many of whom went on to become head coaches, did the same. Suwannee reached the pinnacle of its program in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s winning four consecutive state titles under the school’s all-time winningest coach Mike Pittman. From 1985-1995, Pittman went 96-36 in 11 seasons, including 11 consecutive winning seasons. Following three consecutive losing seasons under Tony Branch, Pittman needed three years to turn the program around, guiding them to a 11-2 season and the Bulldogs first state title with a 35-7 win over Naples Lely. Pittman followed that up winning three more state titles with wins over Key West (27-10), Hardee County (44-15) and Cardinal Gibbons (44-14); before he closed out his career at Suwannee with four consecutive playoff appearances. Paul Landry had the unfortunate distinction of hav-86 years of history Continued From Page 1B Next up for Suwannee was Clay-Pal with the winner to face North Central Florida (who Suwannee beat twice in Districts) with that winner advancing to face Ocala in the championship. Things started off good for Suwannee with Deni Allen getting a single in the first and eventually scoring to put Suwannee up 1-0. But in the third inning it got ugly for Suwannee with Suwannee’s defense committing 3 errors and giving up 2 hits, the only two hits Clay had the whole game. Unfortunately, Clay scored 4 runs in the inning. In the 4th inning Haejin Choe hit a double and while trying to stretch it to a triple was thrown out at third. “That was totally my fault. I miss judged her speed and when I tried to hold her, I was a little too late.” That proved to be costly with Emily Watson burning the center fielder for a double that would have easily scored Choe on the very next at bat. Watson was advanced to 3rd by Lacee Giddens and Watson eventually scored on a wild pitch cutting the score in half. But that was all Suwannee could do with Clay winning the game 4-2 to eliminate Suwannee’s chance at a title. “That game hurt. We were the better team but let it slip away. It wasn’t our pitching that was the problem but our fielding errors in the 3rd that cost us. We are a very strong defensive team and that was so out of character for us. I had to make a pitching change just to break Clay’s momentum which worked. Clay is known as a momentum team; they score runs in bunches. Clay run-ruled Oviedo 21-5 to start the tournament and run-ruled Ft. White 14-3 to face us. We just came up a little short. It hurts but life goes on. I remember first base coach Rob Osburn saying, ‘The best team is walking out of the park, said Watson.” “My hats off to Ocala who won the title over runner-up Claythey earned it!” Skills Challenge In the skills challenge at the opening ceremonies Suwannee took 2nd over all as a team with: Lacee Giddens winning the pitching challenge (1st place) Haejin Choe getting runner up in the hitting challenge (2nd place) Kelsey Parlato and Takema West 4th & 5th respectively in base-running competition Sajada Burkett finished 3rd in the throwing challenge. Savannah Perry and Emily Watson came in 4th in the catcher/shortstop throw down. Suwannee would’ve finished with 1st place as a team but after Sajada Burkett dominated the throwing competition, North Central Florida appealed it saying she stepped over the line and they let every girl re-throw. After Burkett backed up to 16u line to be sure she didn’t cross the 14u lineshe came in 3rd. “I really feel sorry for Jada. She earned it and did nothing different from the other girls. She was the last one to throw and dominated the competitionit was unfair to her for them to put that kind of pressure on her. Jada showed a lot of character by just taking it in stride and never complaining, said Watson.” “I am so proud of our girls for sticking with it even though the weather didn’t cooperate at all. We made a good run and won the District 4 Championship. We had good fan support and we played hard. I would love to have the 2nd inning against Ocala and the 3rd inning against Clay back but we can’t. I also want to thank all the parents, coaches, individuals, and businesses that helped us raise the funds to go to Ponte Vedra. It feels good to be a part of such a talented team and group of people,” said Watson Thank You to Our Sponsors A special thanks to the following businesses who helped us go to Ponte Vedra for the Florida Babe Ruth State Tournament Just Play It Sports Lafayette State Bank (LO) Dairy Queen Publix Donut Time Mantooth Family Dentistry Gamble & Associates Construction, Inc.

Like Pittman, Walls had Suwannee playing in a state title game in his third season, guiding them to a state runner-up finish after losing 37-22 to Glades Central in Gainesville. Walls (59-37), the school’s second all-time winningest coach, guided the Bulldogs to seven playoff appearances in his eight years (missing only his last year) before leaving to take a job in Tift County, Georgia. Since Walls, left at the end of the 2004 season, Suwannee has gone through four coaches in six years, as no coach has survived more than two years.

FRIDAY, JULY 22, 2011 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 3BSPORTS Q: Are there different kinds of gum disease? A: Gum Disease, also called periodontal disease or periodontitis, comes in different forms and degrees: € Gingivitis is the mildest form. Gingivitis sufferers will experience red, swollen gums that bleed easily, often just from the act of brushing your teeth. Gingivitis usually causes no discomfort and can be reversed with professional care and good oral hygiene at home. € Chronic periodontitis causes inflamation in the tissue that supports the teeth. Infection forms in the pockets between the gum and the teeth and leads to bone loss and detachment of the teeth. € Aggressive periodontitis is a more severe form. It causes rapid bone destruction and loss of teeth. € Necrotizing periodontal disease is an infection that actually kills tissue, ligaments and bone and can spread, causing damage to cheeks and jaw. The disease is commonly associated with people who have a systemic disease like HIV infection or diabetes. Among treatments for gum disease is periodontal surgery, which removes unhealthy tissue around teeth. The best way to avoid gum disease is to visit your dentist regularly-at least twice a year-and to brush and floss regularly. Ask your dentist about ways to keep your gums healthy.

Dr. Donald M. Minshew Senior Pastor Wellborn Baptist Church Many people have the idea that suffering, especially for their faith, is an unfathomable thought. That is not the teaching of the New Testament. Suffering as a possibility exists within the very DNA of Christian experience, since Christian experience begins and ends in Christ. Here’s how Peter described what our attitude toward suffering should be: “For you were called to this, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you should follow in His steps.”(1 Peter 2:21) Can we admit that there can be a problem in following Jesus’ steps when it comes to suffering? Tennessee Williams tells a story of someone who forgotthe story of Jacob Brodzky, a shy Russian Jew whose father owned a bookstore. The father wanted his son to go to college. The boy, on the other hand, desired nothing but to marry Lila, his childhood sweethearta French girl who was as ambitious and outgoing as he was laid back and contemplative. A couple of months after young Brodzky went to college, his father fell ill and died. He returned home, buried his father, and married Lila. Then the couple moved into the apartment above the bookstore, and Brodzky took over its management. The life of books fit him perfectly, but it cramped her. She wanted more adventure-and she found it, she thought, when she met an agent who praised her beautiful singing voice and enticed her to tour Europe with a vaudeville company. Brodzky was devastated. At their parting, he reached into his pocket and handed her the key to the front door of the bookstore. "You had better keep this," he told her, "because you will want it someday. Your love is not that much less than mine that you can get away from it. You will come back sometime, and I will be waiting." She kissed him and left. To escape the pain he felt, Brodzky withdrew deep into his bookstore and took to reading as someone else might have taken to drink. He spoke little, did little, and could most times be found at the large desk near the rear of the shop, immersed in his books while he waited for his love to return. Nearly 15 years after they parted, one Christmastime, she did return. But when Brodzky rose from the reading desk, he took the love of his life as an ordinary customer. "Do you want a book?" he asked. That he didn’t recognize her startled her. But she gained possession of herself and replied, "I want a book, but I’ve forgotten the name of it." Then she told him a story of childhood sweethearts: a story of a newly married couple who lived in an apartment above a bookstore; a story of a young, ambitious wife who left to seek a career, which enjoyed great success, but could never relinquish the key her husband gave her when they parted. But his face showed no recognition. "You remember it; you must remember itthe story of Lila and Jacob?" After a long pause, he said, "There is something familiar about the story; I think I have read it somewhere. I think that it is something by Tolstoy." Dropping the key, she fled the shop. And Brodzky returned to his desk, to his reading, unaware that the love he waited for had come and gone. We can start out suffering, aware that it is for Christ…but forget Christ and only remember the suffering. If He calls us to suffer, we should follow in His steps and present our suffering to Him for His glory. For the past few weeks, I have been in what our family calls a “funk.” Does that make sense to anyone? As I have shared before, the past year has been a whirlwind of big events: my oldest getting married, the younger son moving away to college, our daughter turning 16 and the adoption of our new daughter. Now, as the dust settles, I find myself in a very unsettling place. Not that I don’t recognize some of the scenery here…I’ve traveled in parts of this wilderness before. In fact, new territory is such a predictable part of the journey in our lives that I can’t help but wonder why it catches us by surprise. The dictionary defines “wilderness” as a wild region, a pathless area or a remote space. The terrain in a wilderness area will vary, because the environment in one part of the country will often be vastly different from another. (Our wilderness doesn’t necessarily look like anyone else’s.) The common factor in new territory is there is no marked path…and this is what leaves us unsettled. New places are often scary, and fear leaves us unsure about where to step next. (I’ve never been a mother-in-law, the parent of an out-of-town college student, or an adopted mom before…yikes!!) With over 300 references in the Old and New Testaments, the scriptures have much to say about these “wilderness experiences.” Surely this alone is an indication that we need to pay attention! A few examples of this phenomenon are: Elijah suffering depression after an amazing victory at Mt. Carmel; Noah struggling with despair after landing the ark on dry ground; even Jesus experienced the wilderness immediately following his baptism. With the prevalence of the wilderness theme, it is not surprising that the vivid detail of Israel’s journey through the wilderness takes up a large portion of the Torah (the first five books of the Bible.) This record is a great source of wisdom to those of us seeking to find our way, so I would like to take a trip (a virtual tour of sorts) through the wilderness with this particular group and learn from their experiences. If you would join me for the next several weeks, Heart Matters will set this as our destination point, with the goal of learning not just how to survive in the wilderness, but also to thrive! Before we begin, one necessity you and I will need for this trip is a few bits of understanding about the wilderness: Times and places in the wilderness are appointed by God…we are not here by accident. Time spent in the wilderness is not wasted…it is a necessary time of instruction. How we respond to the wilderness determines whether we get to the Promised Land or we spend the rest of our lives wandering…if we survive or learn to thrive! With that said, I look forward to learning to navigate this new territory together…because every heart matters!
