This is what a few had to say. I am for it. Anything that will bring in revenue. Vickie Leblanc Ive always voted dry. This time I am voting wet because people are going to drink anyway. Donald Schmidt I hope it stays dry and I plan to vote. Reba Alford I am for legalizing it because it is unfair that the community is losing money. I havent voted yet. Tony Boyette I dont drink but Im in favor of Suwannee County going wet. Vince Minelli I am not familiar with the issue. I would vote if I was more familiar with the issue so I will research it. Isaac Tejada I am not voting and am not paying attention to the issue. Betty Jackson I am against it going wet and will vote to stay dry. Delia Allen It doesnt really matter. It isnt going to make or break the county. Lowell Reddish We need wet. Lee Scrivens Ive voted wet already. Jean Brown I plan to vote for it to be wet. Matthew Martin Im for it. It would keep revenue money in the county. Jay AndersonWet or dry? Your thoughts SEE MCALPIN, PAGE 12AStaff A group in opposition of the county going wet has stated about half of the 500 or so political signs they purchased to place around town have either been destroyed or gone missing. Now, the chairman of Suwannee Dry said protestors stood on church property during a Sunday morning worship service holding signs, some of which simply stated HELL, some have said. The chairman said that if this behavior of drunkenness is the typeWet opposition alleges sign thefts, picketingof behavior were seeing now what kind of behavior are we going to have going wet, Suwannee Dry chairman and pastor of Bible Baptist Church Brad Bailey asked. About six people protested outside Bible Baptist Church, Sunday morning Bailey said. He said his church on East Duval Street has a security detail that patrols the parking lot and outside perimeter during each service. He said a pickup truck pulled Grill, check. Gloves, check. Apron, check. Lets barbeque says Emma Wells of Jacksonville.

Our View is formed by that board.By Jim Holmes I love most things about the Suwannee Valley. For instance, I enjoy the different seasons we experience, while savoring the fact that none of them include snow drifts. I like the gentle rolling hills, our narrow, back country roads, the spring wild flowers with their brilliant colors, the fields filled with corn, peanuts and cattle
although hopefully not at the same time. I love the river
or at least loved it when we had one
and find myself praying it wont be permanently harmed by our current dry spell. Generally speaking, I also like the people. Oh, I could do without the guy whose pickup proudly displayed the bumper sticker, My kid beat up your honor student or the motorist who insists on tossing trash in front of my gate. (I dont let that serial litterer bother me too much however. I figure with all that fast food he or she is devouring, a heart attack or stroke is just months away.) But those folks are the rare exceptions. Overwhelmingly, most of the people Ive encountered in the past four-and-a-half years have been warm and accepting of this former South Florida flatlander and his spouse. In other words, theyve made us feel at home. So whats the down side to living in Suwannee County? Well, I guess at the top of my list---at least at this time of year---would be the gnats. And while it just might be my imagination, we seem to have produced a bumper crop of the tiny pests this summer. They seem to be particularly plentiful in the late afternoon for my daily mailbox odyssey. As I make a mad dash to collect my bills and junk mail, they are making a mad dash for my eyes, nose, ears and mouth
to say nothing of any booboos I might have. Apparently I am their Early Bird Special. According to the experts, gnats are attracted to any part of our body where mucus or other proteinrich secretions can be found. The good news is once theyve located something they want to eat, they dont bite. Instead, they scrape or sweep the area with their rear legs until they have a little pile of whatever it is they plan to devour. That pile is then absorbed via a sponge-like mouth, thus we feel nothing painful. (Usually, I find myself reassured when I learn something new like this, but honestly this knowledge just creeps me out!) At any rate, there apparently isnt much you can do to drive them off, except---and with no disrespect meant to anyones religious faith--what I call the Continuous Jewish Genuflect. Thats where the right hand is in persistent motion around the head and shoulders, but rather than hitting the four-points of the Christian Cross, I focus on making the six-pointed Star of David. It helps for a second or so. After these tiny pests have dined at Jims (which I would like to think has a five-star rating in the gnat restaurant world), each little fly lays up to 50 eggs just under the surface of the soil. Within about a month, the reproductive process is complete and a whole new bunch of gnats are welcomed into our world. Gnats---in one form or another---are with us all year round, but its when temperatures are above 90-degrees that their population explodes, say the experts. And Lord knows, weve had plenty of 90-degree plus temperatures lately. I know virtually all creatures have some purpose on this planet. For example, I suspect gnats are on the diet of lizards and frogs. At least I hope so. Otherwise, as my wife says, What was Noah thinking? Maybe they didnt take up much room, but did he REALLY need a pair of them on the Ark!? Jim lives in Live Oak THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLER Jims: A five star eatery?

We ask this so we can verify your letter and discuss any questions about it with you.BIBLE VERSEI will hasten and not delay to obey your commands. Psalm 119:60 NIV Here's what President Barack Obama said about our high rate of unemployment in an interview with NBC's Ann Curry: "The other thing that happened, though -and this goes to the point you were just making -is there are some structural issues with our economy, where a lot of businesses have learned to become much more efficient with a lot fewer workers," adding that "you see it when you go to a bank and you use an ATM; you don't go to a bank teller. Or you go to the airport and you're using a kiosk instead of checking in at the gate." The president's statements suggest that he sees labor-saving technological innovation as a contributor to today's high rate of unemployment. That's unmitigated nonsense. Let's see whether technological innovation causes unemployment. In 1790, farmers were 90 percent, out of a population of nearly 3 million, of the U.S. labor force. By 1900, only about 41 percent of our labor force was employed in agriculture. By 2008, fewer than 3 percent of Americans were employed in agriculture. Through labor-saving technological advances and machinery, our farmers are the world's most productive. As a result, Americans are better off. In 1970, the telecommunications industry employed 421,000 workers as switchboard operators, annually handling 9.8 billion long-distance calls. Today the telecommunications industry employs only 78,000 operators. That's a tremendous 80 percent job loss. What happened? The answer: There have been spectacular labor-saving advances in telecommunications. Today more than 100 billion long-distance calls a year require only 78,000 switchboard operators. What's more is the cost of making a long-distance call is a tiny fraction of what it was in 1970. Can we say these technological innovations made the nation worse off? Professor Russell Roberts, my George Mason University colleague, gives other examples in his Wall Street Journal article (6/22/2011) "Obama vs. ATM's: Why Technology Doesn't Destroy Jobs." He says that today just a couple of workers can manage the egg-laying operation of nearly a million chickens laying 240 million eggs a year, through a highly mechanized and computerized process. Thousands of toll collectors are replaced by E-ZPass machines. Autoworkers are replaced by robots. Fifty years ago, a typical textile worker operated five machines capable of running thread through a loom 100 times a minute. Today machines run six times as fast, and one worker can oversee 100 of them. You say, "Williams, certain jobs are destroyed by technology." You're right, but many more are created. Think about it. If 90 percent of Americans still had been farmers in 1900, where in the world would we have gotten workers to produce all those goods that were not even heard of in 1790, such as telephones, steamships and oil wells? We need not go back that far. If there hadn't been the kind of labor-saving technical innovation we've had since the 1950s -in the auto, construction, telephone industries and many others -where in the world would we have gotten workers to produce things that weren't heard of in the '50s, such as desktop computers, cellphones, HDTVs, digital cameras, MRI machines, pharmaceuticals and myriad other goods and services? What technological innovation does is reduce the value of some jobs, raise the value of others and create many more jobs. Some workers are made better off through greater employment opportunities. Others are made worse off by having to accept less attractive employment opportunities, an adjustment process that can be painful. Since technological progress makes goods and services cheaper, and of higher quality, to stand in its way, in the name of saving jobs, will make us a poorer nation. What we're witnessing in our economy is what economic historian Joseph Schumpeter termed "creative destruction," the process in which something new replaces something older. By the way, we can always count upon an infinite number of potential jobs. The reason is that human wants are insatiable. People always want more of something.

Clean your floor thoroughly then start by outlining your cobblestones in neutral paint colors. Be sure to keep stone shapes varied but similar in size. Paint your grout (or mossThen take one stone at a time starting with your medium toned color. While paint is still tacky add your darker shades of that same color around the edges of the stone. Then use a lighter shade towards the center to highlight. Blend the colors together with a dry-brush technique as a final step. Use a satin gloss as a protective finish.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 27, 2011 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 11A 682953bgv By Jeffry Boatrightjeffry.email@example.comMany Suwannee County voters have been casting absentee ballots to determine the fate of Suwannee Countys wet or dry status. According to Suwannee County Supervisor of Elections Glenda Williams, 2,171 absentee ballots had been mailed out as of July 22. Of those, 1,049 have been completed and returned. There have been up to 300 absentees mailed out in one day, Williams stated. Registration has increased and early voting will begin August 8 and continue through August 13. The Supervisor of Elections Office will be available for early voting in Live Oak and the library in Branford will be utilized for early voting as well. Since May 1 there have been 250 new voters to register to vote, Williams said. There are two questions on the ballot. The first one will ask the voter to choose either for selling intoxicating beverages containing more than 6.243 percent of alcohol by volume or against selling such beverages. The second question will ask voters to decided if such sales should be allowed for the package and drink or for sales by the package only if the voter is for selling intoxicating beverages. Williams reminds all voters that if the first question is left unanswered, the second question will not be counted. However, if only the first question is answered, the ballot will remain valid.Absentee voting going strongBy Stephenie Livingstonstephenie.firstname.lastname@example.orgWhen a deputy sheriff and a young woman with a clipboard approached Elizabeth Tilford in an aisle at Walmart in Live Oak, her mind swirled in panic. As a crowd gathered around, her thoughts were flying in all directions as to why this was happening. Did they think she had shoplifted? Was this a case of mistaken identity? Was she going to be arrested? No, she was told to report for emergency jury duty. As a result, Suwannee County Judge William F. Lin Williams said a plan has been put in place to curtail future occurrences. I looked imploringly at the deputy as the young woman continued asking questions and writing on her clipboard, but I never received any information from him or her until she tore off a page, handed it to me, and said here is a summons. I asked, A summons for what, said Tilford. Jury duty, was the response. Tilford was at the shopping center on US 129 North in Live Oak, picking up a few things for her husband and their dog, since she was planning to leave town to visit her granddaughter over the weekend. Instead, she was ordered to attend emergency jury duty by an administrator for the court. She was one of 21 people randomly served a jury duty summons at Walmart and Lowes on Thursday, April 20, after people summoned by mail weeks before failed to show up, Williams said. Two trials were on the dockets for the following Friday, April 21, one of which had been pending for nearly a year. Witnesses were on hand and a private attorney had been hired for at least one of the cases. With everything else ready to go, Williams and administrators had one problem: an empty jury box. Of the 80 people summoned at random by the court, only 19 people reported to jury duty on April 20. Williams realized that it would not be possible to pick jurors for two trials from such a limited pool. It was clear to me it wasnt going to work, he said. He ordered court administrators to serveEmergency jury duty left local stunnedPeople plucked from local stores to serve people with a summons at Walmart and Lowes. Of the 21 individuals picked at random, two were excused the next day, including Tilford who had a medical condition. However, she said it was not the duty, but the manner in which she was chosen that shocked, embarrassed and humiliated her. In my adult life I have been called for jury duty here and in other counties Ive lived in. I always showed up and was proud to do my duty and will do so again and again if I am selected, she said. But I expect to be selected in a proper manner that allows one to maintain (her) dignity and respect. Williams said he understood that the decision to select people for jury duty from Walmart and Lowes, and at such short notice, would probably upset some. However, he decided it was a necessary decision to see that justice was done and that the defender received a trial, one he said was already overdue. That particular day was an enigma, said Williams, who noted he is within the law to summon a jury in this manner. After the manner that those jurors were chosen, which has happened rarely in Suwannee County and not in recent memory according to court officials, Williams said the court has put in place safeguards to ensure it doesnt happen that way again. Last week, Suwannee County combined circuit and county trial within one court week to be held during the last week of each month. Jurors will be chosen out of a single pool called once a month. Williams hope is that this will cut down on the noshows. There is a very important need for them to participate, he said. Its what makes our countrys justice system the best in the world. Stephenie Livingston Two Live Oak people were arrested Saturday after an argument led to shots being fired, Suwannee County sheriffs reports show. Floyd Quinn Jr. and Rebecca Quinn, both 50, were arrested after shots were fired during an argument the two had in the early morning hours Saturday, according to reports. During the argument, Rebecca Quinn knowingly and intentionally fired a semi-automatic pistol in the air. When authorities arrived, Floyd Quinn, a convicted felon, had concealed the weapon in a pocket on his shorts. The two were arrested and booked into the Suwannee County Jail. Rebecca QuinnShots fired leads to arrests Rebecca Quinn Floyd Quinn faces charges of improper exhibition of a firearm. Floyd Quinn was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, and carrying a concealed weapon.Total calls for service: 79 Medical Calls: 68 Cardiac: 5 Trauma: 13 Motor vehicle crash: 2 Miscellaneous medical call: 6 Altered mental status: 10 Respiratory: 13 Diabetic: 1 Weakness: 6 Abdominal pain: 6 Death: 1 Overdose: 1 Nausea/Vomiting: 2 Stroke 1 Special Detail 1 Fire Calls: 11 Structure Fire: 2 Motor vehicle crash: 2 Down power line: 3 Smoke Inv: 3 Vehicle Fire: 1 Volunteer Fire Responses: 12 Engine-1 medical calls in Rescue 5 --0Suwannee County Fire/Rescue calls for service for July 16 to July 23In October of 2010 Cheek and Scott Drugs received accreditation by the Community Specialty Pharmacy Network (CSPN) as a Specialty Pharmacy.

Militello, 68 and their nephew Angelo Rosales, 32. Jacobsen said jury selection for Howze is scheduled to take place Oct. 19 and 20. Jury selection for Munn is expected to take place a couple days prior to his trial, Jacobsen said. Howze and Munn have been charged with three counts each of first-degree murder while armed with a firearm, home invasion robbery while armed, conspiracy to commit home invasion robbery and conspiracy to commit first degree murder while armed with a firearm. The two face the death penalty if convicted. The Militellos and their nephew were found by an employee lying face down in their 172nd Street McAlpin home early morning on Aug. 26, 2010 after they had been shot execution style once each in the back of their heads. Authorities said Howze and Munn targeted the Militellos for money and believed to have robbed and killed them the evening of Aug. 25. A former employee of the Militellos, Keith Allen Hughes, 25, was jailed on charges of conspiracy to commit armed robbery in connection with the murders. He hanged himself in his jail cell at the Suwannee County Jail last September. Hughes had a past record of arson, affray and criminal mischief. Released from prison in 2008, Howze has already served 14 years of a 25year sentence for second degree murder in Hernando County. Both Howze and Munn have a history of burglaries. Howze played a role in a previous Suwannee County burglary, while Munn served time in 1988 for burglary, robbery and false imprisonment. Munn landed back in prison four more times between 1992 and 1998 on cocaine charges, grand theft and burglary. The pair are associated with the Black Pistons Motorcycle Club in Tampa, officials said. The Black Pistons are known to be involved in criminal activities, such as the transportation of drugs, assault, extortion, fraud, intimidation and theft.

He called the protest futile but nonetheless told his congregation at the conclusion of the service to go straight to their vehicles, not to answer any questions or ask any of the protestors. Local resident Stephen Ogles said that protestors should demonstrate their actions towards a Suwannee Dry meeting, not a church service. They can gather and protest at any of the meetings that Suwannee Dry has if they want but have some respect for people that just want to go to a church service, he said.Wet opposition alleges sign thefts, picketingContinued From Page 1A I think it should be wet because people go across the line to get it and we could bring in taxes. I plan to vote. John McCormick Im very much in favor of going wet. I have wanted it for a long time and Ive already voted absentee. Cheryl Greene Im in favor of wet because it keeps money here. I voted absentee. Lillie Hodges We should have done it a long time ago. It should mean more money coming here. I dont really plan to vote. Ed RassWet or dry?Continued From Page 1A Bailey also noted that several political signs asking the county vote to stay dry have been destroyed or gone missing around the county, most recently at the roundabout in Live Oak. Weve had constant destruction of our signs, said Bailey. We dont have the budgets to keep buying and replacing signs. Some have been run over, some were laying flat with tire tracks on them, some had the (support) stick broken, some were gone, said Bailey. Live Oak Police Chief Buddy Williams said he has been made aware of several sign incidents and said he will be monitoring the situation closely. Bailey said this type behavior doesnt paint a pretty picture for the other side who want to see the county wet. Suwannee Yes!, the political committee behind the movement to take the county wet, has formally stated the group is neither involved nor does it support that type behavior. We are not encouraging or participating in any protests or acts of vandalism, said Suwannee Yes! vice-chair Robin Young. We dont condone violence or criminal acts of theft or personal property damage. We are running a clean campaign. Our main focus is getting out the vote. We encourage all our supporters to go vote now so we can move Suwannee County forward. Bailey said while Suwannee Yes! may not be directly related, it does not reflect well on those wanting to go wet. Semi destroyed by fireFire engulfed this semi on CR 136A Sunday. Photo: Suwannee County Fire/RescueStaff Fire destroyed a semi owned by Wily Sanders Sunday around 5:30 p.m., Suwannee County Fire/Rescue reported. No injuries were reported during the incident on CR 136A. SCFR stated that the driver had just filled both fuel tanks with over $500 in diesel when he turned into his driveway and saw smoke rolling out from under the dash. "He exited and said flames were already coming from under the hood," SCFR reported Sunday. The state fire marshal's office was called in to investigate. Robert Larry Davenport, 31 and David Alan Smith, 46, both of 12807 155th Place, Live Oak, were arrested on two counts each of burglary of a structure and two counts each of grand theft. According to reports, the two entered the 144th Street home on Saturday and removed copper wire from throughout the dwelling. The men returned the next day and removed more wire, totaling $900 in stolen property. Local canine tracking teams were called in to assist in locating the two, who ran from the home into nearby woods. Both Smith and Davenport were arrested and booked into the Suwannee County Jail on Sunday, according to reports. Copper wire stripped from home Continued From Page 1A
Section BWednesday, July 27, 2011Suwannee Democrat SPORTS SPORTS By Corey Daviscorey.email@example.comEditors note: The following story ran Oct. 8, 2010 in the sports section of the Suwannee Democrat. Sports writer Corey Davis recently finished third statewide for Best Sports Feature story for the Florida Press Awards. BRANFORD-After years of talking about it, Stephanie Copeland, 16, finally got the nerve to come out on the field and give football a try. I first started talking about it in the sixth grade with my friends, Copeland said. I always looked at them playing and said I could be out there doing that, kicking, passing and tackling. Girls can do it just as good as guys, its not about all guys playing. Its with that confidence that Copeland, a freshman lineman, finally got the nerve to come out for the team. Copeland, who also excels in basketball, softball and track (two-time state qualifier in shot put and discus), was so nervous about telling her parents she didnt -at least not for a while. I waited till the first game to tell my dad but he knew I always wanted to play, Copeland said, He was like wow very surprised that I was playing. Next she had to warm over her teammates and friends, many of which she would be fighting for their position. At first I didnt like it much and came close to hanging it up, but a few weeks later I started liking it and became one of the best ones out here, Copeland said. Some of them were smart talking me saying I cant do nothing or anything so I had to show them what I have. What she has is the ability to play wherever needed. Copeland at times plays five different positions through out the game, whether its defensive line, offensive line, punter, kicker and kickoff specialist. Nothing has changed at all, said first year Branford Junior Varsity coach Perry Davis. She has her own separate dressing room but other than that isnt treated any differently at all. Davis talked about how Copeland has developed from day one to presently. When she hits them (boys) all the girly thoughts go away, Davis chuckled. Davis knows first hand what its like to have a girl on the team having coached one at Newberry and seeing his cousin kick for a school in Georgia. We had a girl at Newberry in 2002 who played varsity and Stephanie (Copeland) is way better than her. She has very good feet and good hands, Davis said. Copeland picked up the nickname The Beast from her teammates because she dominates everyone. She is the anchor on our team, anything we need she does. We try to rest her as much as possible because we use her a lot, Davis said. She just started kicking the other day, shes so athletic and loves to play and win. Davis has a lot of confidence in her playing abilities so he gave her the option to call fake punts. Branford freshman lineman Stephanie Copeland dominates the game despite being the lone girl on the team. -Photo: Corey DavisJust one of the guys SEE JUST, PAGE 3B By Corey Daviscorey.firstname.lastname@example.orgEDITORS NOTE: The following are the top sports stories of the 2010-11 school year. We start with the best honorable mention stories and continue Aug. 3 with No. 6-10 stories and conclude Aug. 5 with the top five stories. Honorable Mention Cats cause a fuss When Baker County and Suwannee met back in late October at Paul Langford Stadium, police were needed to prevent a situation from getting much worse. According to head coach Willie Spears, Greg Swinsons helmet got ripped off and an unidentified Baker County player stepped on his unprotected head. Later in the game another Baker County player stepped on another Suwannee players leg as he laid on the ground. In a close game in the fourth quarter, tempers flared and players and coaches from Baker County were overheard yelling obscenities and racial slurs toward Suwannee players and coaches. To avoid a further situation, Spears gathered up his team and made them walk back to the school after Wildcat players and coaches were gathered around the bus. Lafayette makes history Facing their second straight overtime playoff game, Lafayette overcame illness and fatigue to make history in a 2-1 win Jan. 28 over host Tallahassee Maclay to secure the schools first-ever district title. Jose Rubio and another senior player approached head coach Danny Glover during a break before starting overtime and told their coach they wanted to make history. Eight minutes later, Rubio, who only scored three goals during the regular season, backed it up with a game-winning goal off an assist from Ismael Moreno that clinched the Hornets first-ever district championship. After finding the back of the net twice in the Hornets' 4-3 penalty-kick win over John Paul II in the District 3-2A semifinal Wednesday, Rubio came out with a goal in the first 40 seconds against Maclay off an assist from Moreno. Before facing Maclay, Lafayette first had to get by John Paul and trailed early but rallied to win. We were down two goals against John Paul, tied them at 3-all and was able to beat them 4-1 in penalty kicks, Glover said. The win against Maclay was even sweeter for many of the team, who were coping with the flu during halftime according to Glover. We had kids throwing up at the half. Rubio was sick but he didnt tell me, Glover said, But our kids didnt give up and kept fighting through it. Through out the first half my guys werent clicking on all cylinders, we challenged the guys at the half to step up. Despite being tied 11, we felt like Maclay was ahead of us. Maclay tied the game in the 18th minute and both teams couldnt punch in another score to force overtime. The determination his team showed in regulation to maintain the tie is what fired Rubio's quest for history, the coach said. Rubio, who has scored four of the teams five goals in the postseason, and the rest of his teammates were determined to bring home the trophy and wouldnt be denied despite the two long nights. We werent worried about being tired, we just wanted to make history, Uriel Posada said. Now Lafayette (9-4-2) looks to make more history hosting its first-ever playoff game against Gainesville PK Yonge (124-4) tonight at 7 p.m. at Dale Walker Field. Now our goal is to win our first-ever playoff game, Jose Rubio said. St. Francis coach Scott Fries, whom tied and barely beat Lafayette in the final two regular season game, might have gave the Hornets the extra spark they need by predicting a rematch with PK Yonge in the second round of the playoffs. Shocking end Trailing by one run with runners on first and second and nobody out in the bottom of the seventh inning, Lafayette appeared on its way to another come from behind win. Unfortunately, head coach Derek Garland made a critical decision, that proved to be costly in a 7-6 loss to visiting Port St Joe in the first round of the playoffs. With the tying run on second base, Stacy McClelland was waved home by Garland after Lindsay OSteen singled to right and was thrown out at home. OSteens single would have loaded the bases with no outs for the Hornets, but instead put runners on second and third with one out. That was poor coaching at third base, I held her up and then sent her after the catcher made a mistake but the catcher was able to hit the pitcher in stride and make a play at the plate, Garland said. I was stopping her at first and did a poor job knowing where the ball was. We could have had bases loaded with no outs and we had the people we wanted up. Port St Joe pitcher Kasey Tullis regrouped to enduce a pop up to second and a grounder to short to end the game. Early on it looked like Lafayette wouldnt need a late inning rally after taking a 5-2 lead in the second inning. Lydia Land and McClelland walked and scored on a single and double from Kali Sharpe and OSteen. The Sharks tied it with a three-run third inning off McClelland and retook the lead again with two more runs in the sixth to lead 7-6. Megan Gannons 2 RBI bunt single rolled past a drawed infield and into shallow centerfield allowing the Sharks to take the lead again in the sixth. Port St Joe came ready to play and they took advantage of some of our mistakes, Garland said. We didnt make the plays and they did the little things they needed to do to win. An offense that scored five runs in the first two innings and was held to just one run the final five, was helped out by suOfficers prepare to intervene as a Baker County fan approaches a Suwannee assistant coach after the Bulldogs 18-14 win over the visiting Wildcats.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 27, 2011 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 2BSPORTS 684437amv perb defensive plays in the final two innings-resulting in a double play and triple play. That triple play gave us a chance at the end, Garland said. They fought hard and battled but it just wasnt our night. One fateful drive Ahead 13-7 at the half, Lafayette had No 5 ranked Jefferson County right where they wanted them. Unfortunately they couldnt hold on, as the visiting Tigers (10-2) outscored the host Hornets 20-7 in the second half including a 200 run in the third quarter to knock off Lafayette 27-20 at Dale Walker Stadium. Jefferson County senior tailback DeVondrick Nealy (being recruited by Michigan, Alabama and Auburn) carried the team on his back in the third quarter. Nealy, who entered the game with 2,285 yards and 41 touchdowns, sparked the Tigers with a 24-yard run on the first play of the third quarter, which led to Rivante Robinsons nineyard touchdown run giving the Tigers their first lead of the game at 14-13. Lafayette made to many turnovers and couldnt capitalize on the Tigers mistakes. Tigers quarterback Lanoris Footman fumbled the snap on their first play of their next possession, however the Hornets couldnt take advantage of it as sophomore quarterback Rodney Brown tried to hit Antwan Brown on the next play and instead was picked off in the end zone. With sudden momentum, we tried to quickly change things and shoot for the end zone, Lafayette head coach Joey Pearson said. Jefferson took advantage of the turnover as Nealy guided the Tigers on a 10play (8 runs), 80-yard drive culminating with Footmans 5-yard pass to Robinson increasing the lead to 21-13. Rodney Brown fumbled the ensuing pooch kickoff and the Tigers struck again as Nealy rumbled 24-yards for a score making it 27-13 with 1:13 left in the third. Lafayette (10-2) cut the lead as Brown hit Andre Hall for a 35-yard touchdown pass cutting the lead to 27-20 with 5:12 left in the game. However, Nealy (252 yards on 36 carries) and Robinson combined to run out the remaining five minutes off the clock picking up two key third down conversions. Jefferson County made some very key second half adjustments, Pearson said. Our guys played their hearth out. The second half was the opposite of the first half, in which Lafayette controlled the clock and limited the Tigers possessions. It didnt take long for the Hornets to score as Antwan Brown rumbled 27 yards on the fourth play of the game to give them a 7-0 lead barely a minute and half into the game. Jose Rubio picked off Footman on their sixth play of the drive at the 29-yard line but the Hornets turned it back over three plays later on Rodney Browns fumbled snap. Two possessions later, the Tigers tied it up as Nealy took a toss sweep on fourth and goal and scored untouched from five yards out on the first play of the second quarter. Lafayette answered with a 12-play 55-yard drive led by Brown, Andre Hall, JR Bass and Treston Whidden. Hall plowed in from two yards on a fourth and two play. Bass was stopped short on the two-point conversion play putting the Hornets up 13-7 with 5:45 till half. Jefferson fumbled the ensuing pooch kickoff which was recovered by Dylan Green, but Lafayette couldnt take advantage of the turnover. Faced with fourth and three with under four minutes till half, Pearson elected for forgo the 36-yard field goal and instead go for it. Rodney Browns pass intended for Antwan Brown was knocked down by the Tigers secondary. We tried to hit the hitch on them on the play but we jumped offsides, Pearson said. Jefferson nearly took advantage of the turnover before half driving to the 35yard line before a Footman screen pass intended for Nealy on fourth down was dropped by Nealy. Momentum turned quickly in the second half and we could have got blow out easily but we cut it to seven with five minutes left. They had third and four, we stop them we knew we could score. We turned it over to many times tonight and we needed to play a clean game to have a chance to win. Jefferson County coach Jeremy Brown told Pearson after the game in theTop stories of the school yearContinued From Page 1B locker room, his team was highly motivated last week and played with a chip on their shoulders to beat Hawthorne after Hawthorne knocked them out of the playoffs last season and told his kids Lafayette would be very highly motivated and have a chip on their shoulder after being eliminated by the Tigers last season. Lafayette gave them everything they could but ran out of time. Revenged served Despite having been there 12 months ago, Mount Dora coach Frank Scott admitted his team got lost about 30-45 minutes on the way to the same exact field. I didnt remember where it was, the bus and our GPS took us to the school board building, Scott said. I had to get out and ask where the field was. Truth is Scott probably wanted his team to forget the 10-0 loss to host Suwannee in the first round of the playoffs last season. It worked as visiting Mount Dora barely had time to get a few batting cage swings in, before responding with a 17-3 win over host Suwannee in the second round of the playoffs at Booster Field. It was definitely on our minds, we talked a lot about it this week, Scott said. We talked about just remembering what happened last year, where we came out a little flat at the beginning last year. We came out with intensity and more focused and swung the bats well tonight. It was never said about paying them back, but they were definitely thinking about it. Mount Dora starter junior Evan Challenger, who played left field in the game last season, handcuffed the Bulldogs lethal bats, holding them four hits and three runs on the mound, while also going 5for-5 with 4 RBI at the plate. We talked about it all week, how they 10 run ruled us, Challenger said. We also read in one of the local papers that we werent much of an offensive team. We wanted to prove them wrong. Suwannees three pitchers sophomore Trey Owen, senior Trevor Lister and sophomore Cody Gamble combined to to give up 16 earned runs on 14 hits, while walking nine and striking out six. Luke Lauterbock tworun double to dead center off Owen gave the visiting Bulldogs an early 3-0 lead. Ryan daSilva cut the lead to 3-1 with a leadoff solo home run to left field for the host Bulldogs first hit of the night. Lister was greeted by last years staring pitcher James Davis, who sent Listers third pitch over the center field fence wall. Blake Swann doubled down the left field line scoring Yasmani Grafas cutting the lead to 5-2 through three innings. Andrew Barba and Dulani Thomas, who both walked, scored off Challengers RBI double to left increasing the lead to 7-2 in the fifth inning. Suwannee had a chance to get back in the game in the fifth as Makari Hines lead off with a single and Gafas walked. Stuart Brown singled to right scoring Hines from second. Brown stole second and Gafas tried to score but was thrown out at home by the shortstop. Gafas run would have cut the lead to 7-4 or at least put runners on second and third with no outs. Challenger regrouped to enduce two fly balls to get out of the inning with further damage. The momentum from Gafas being thrown out and Challenger getting out of the jam carried into the top of the sixth as the visiting Bulldogs sent 13 batters to the plate, scoring 10 runs. Challenger connected on his second two-run double of the night and Nick Dadich put an exclamation point on the night with a grand slam over the left field wall. Suwannee (19-8), which broke several offensive school records this season and scored 10 or more runs in 10 of its 19 wins, continued to struggle at the plate combining for just five runs in its two playoff games. I thought we would need to score at least 8-9 runs tonight to win because of our youthful pitching, Gray said. In all my years of coaching, I never had to run guys this young out on the mound in this kind of environment before. The loss not only ended Suwannees season but gave them their first home loss of the season after nine straight wins. First time we loss at home, that sucks, Gray said. Turn on the College World Series and watch a losers bracket game, this is the kind of thing that happens. 677481jbV

Asked what position she likes playing the most and she easily answers back on the line. Its really good, I like being down there and learning its very helpful and good for me, Copeland said. No one can stop me, I blow them through the gaps really well and make lots of tackles. In hitting drills I blow them off the line and in games I get a lot of tackles. Copeland is believed to be the first young lady in Suwannee County history to play high school football. You might think there might be some one out there who is prejudiced towards a girl playing football. Not so. Several of her teammates talked about playing with a girl and their reaction when she first came out and how they feel about it now. When I first saw her I was like wow, she finally did what she was going to do, freshman lineman Reynaldo Montoya said. She started lifting over the summer with us. She started having a good time and we believed she could play with us. Montoya, who has known Copeland since first grade, also said she has been talking about coming out for at least a year. Some people were mad cause she took their job but she takes the contact. Were glad shes here, we need players and she can play. No one gave her a hard time everyone was just amazed she finally came out, Montoya said. Teammate and fellow lineman eighth grader Will Boney echoed his teammates comments. I was shocked a lot of people told me was coming out, Boney said, I was even more shocked she was very good. Shes really strong, probably theJust one of the guysContinued From Page 1B Suwannee DemocratPublisher Myra Regan presents Suwannee Democratsportswriter Corey Davis with a plaque after finishing third for Best Sports Feature Story at the Florida Press Awards recently. -Photo: Joyce Marie Taylorstrongest hitter on the team. Like Montoya, Boney also said no one really said anything bad about their teammate coming out. Not really as as far as bad talk, sometime the opposing teams stay stuff but most of the time they say how shocked they are how good she is, Boney said. Boney, who played with a female teammate in Branford Parks and Recreation football, stated you dont notice her being a girl at all and as shes not treated special at all. She tries really hard put forths a lot of effort and we look out for her like a brother, shes one of us, Boney said. Prior to Tuesday nights game, Bell offensive coordinator Thomas Cason stated, We recognize her talent and told the boys dont take it easy on her but she wont be taking it easy on you. We didnt take change our strategy to defend her either. When asked about his players reaction to seeing her Cason noted, you hear little rumors and whispers is that really a girt, our players felt weird about hitting a girl, but when she hits them hard that goes away quickly. Bell tailback Austin Richey perhaps summed it best: Shes scary. I couldnt believe it was a chick, either. Cason noted that he has had some girls interested in joining his team but none have come out and that also they had a girl Opal Brunger play offensive line back in either 2000 or 2001. Copeland has done so well she has persuaded other females to possibly come out next year and gained a lot of respect from her peers, including the cheerleaders. I think its an awesome idea of her out there playing football, she is treated like everyone else, seventh grader Emily Pierce said. Pierce also said she has thought about playing football herself. Seventh grader Megan Roush said, She is one of the toughest players I have Summer Thomas plays football for the Suwannee Parks and Recreation league and looks up to Stephanie Copeland.Photo: Corey Davis ever seen. She stands up for everything even though she is a girl. She doesnt exclude herself because she is a girl. Ashley Horn, eighth grader, commented, Its really good she plays, shes the only girl I know who would take it serious and not afraid to get beat up. Shes very aggressive and brave and awesome. She makes people feel good, pumps the team up and shows very good sportsmanship. Eighth grader Christell Sanders chimed in, Shes funny and gives good advice and gets everyone pumped up. Seventh grader Tifphani Whitley commented, She is the bravest girl and she is extraordinary. Tori Throdsmorton, eight grader, said she is the most out going and inspirational girl. Bethany Smith, freshman, stated, Stephanie is a person that people should look up to, she is really brave. Seventh grader Blaire Bates said She is so funny, awesome, cool and a good football player. Alexus Harris, seventh grader, commented, She is so fun to watch and makes me want to play football. Hailey Hall, seventh grader, stated, Stephanie is a great person, athlete, friend and good influence, She inspires girls everywhere who want to play football. Copeland is hoping her bravery and play on the field inspire other girls to play football as well. One particular young lady looks to her as a role model. Ten-year-old Summer Thomas plays football for Suwannee Parks and Recreation. It makes me feel great that someone looks up to me, Copeland said. Girls can play football and hopefully I can help others also. Thomas plays wide receiver and cornerback primarily for the Pee Wee Double R Fencing Colts but also plays linebacker, nose guard, kicker and running back when asked. In addition to playing football, Thomas is an accomplished gymnast and also competes in basketball at the Park and Rec. When I took my helmet off the kids were like wow shes a girl, Thomas said, One dad said Shes going to hurt my son. Thomas is looking forward to meeting Copeland one day perhaps to talk -about football, of course.

The release party that will launch the new brew on tap will take place from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at OBrothers Irish Pub in Riverside on August 1, 2011. There will be games, giveaways and prizes that include a raffle for an Archies Rhino Rye Pale Ale Behind-the-Scenes Tour and Party for 15 guests at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens. One dollar from every pint of Archies Rye Pale Ale sold that night will be donated to the feeding, care and conservation of the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens rhinos. The new ale is brewed at Bold City Brewery in Jacksonville. Archies Ale is a medium bodied Pale Ale brewed with Rye Malt which provides a distinctive flavor. It will be sold at restaurants and bars in the Jacksonville area. We always strive to name our beers after something representing our family or the City of Jacksonville, which can be daunting at times, said Brian Miller, Co-Owner and Head Brewer. As we were brainstorming, the name Rhino Rye Pale Ale came to mind and I myself have always been fascinated with this powerful mammal. It was also an opportunity to collaborate with one of our citys gems, the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens. Archie, one of the Zoos most popular animals, is 42-year-old male White Rhinoceros that weighs over three thousand pounds (an estimate since he refuses to get on a scale). Born in South Africa in 1969, he came to the Jacksonville Zoo on December 18, 1985. He has sired a total of 13 offspring and currently shares part of the Zoos Plains of East Africa veldt with Gabriella, a 17-yearold female White Rhinoceros, with whom he has had three sons. They can normally be seen in the late afternoon wallowing in the moat together. One of his favorite enrichments is a tire swing which he enjoys resting on his forehead before sending it swinging. I think its great that our friends at Bold City Brewery found a way to help the Zoo and the animals in a unique way that capitalizes on what they do so well, said Zoo Executive Director Tony Vecchio. For more than 96 years, the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens has been dedicated to inspiring discovery and appreciation of wildlife through innovative experience in a caring environment. Since its beginning in 1914, with an animal collection that consisted of only one red deer fawn, the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens has become one of the top zoos in the nation. It now features more than 1,800 rare and exotic animals and over 1,000 unique plant species. Preservation of sustainable biodiversity is a key mission of the Zoo. The Zoo is a nonprofit organization and an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums. It is open yearround, seven-days-a-week, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located on Jacksonvilles north side at 370 Zoo Parkway, one-half mile east from I-95.

By Dave Lobeck CNHI News Service I was in the mood to do something on the grill that was totally different and entirely off the wall. My main concern was my wife. She is not as carnivorous as I am. Don't get me wrong. She loves a great steak or a pulled pork sandwich as well as anyone, but this dish borders on meat mayhem, so I decided to do the honorable thing and not tell her what was for dinner when she inquired. Sorry, a grilling artist cannot be bothered with such details while planning a carnivorous masterpiece. I then texted my son and told him we would be having a real treat for dinner that night. He texted me back and came closer than he knew in his attempt to guess the dish. Is it steak wrapped in steak? For a moment I thought he had some sort of ESP. On to the recipe. Basically, this is a seasoned pork and beef patty wrapped around a premium hot dog with mozzarella cheese. It is grilled and then served on a large hot dog bun, the kind you use for a brat or a sausage. This could have been one of the most popular grilled dishes I have made, especially with the kids. My wife even liked it, meat mayhem and all. This recipe is good for six hot dogs. You can view a video of this recipe that I made at www.youtube.com/bbqmyway. Simply search for stuffed hamburger. Pork and Beef Mixture 1 lb. of ground beef 1/2 lb. of ground pork 1/3 cup of chopped onionBBQ My Way: 'Meat mayhem' is a culinary delight The Lake City Target Distribution Center wrapped up its 2011-12 United Way campaign with a check presentation. The local Target Distribution Center employees pledged $7,768, an increase of 22.6 percent over last year with 64 percent participation. The employees also conducted fundraising events which contributed to the pledges to total $8,168.95. Target is a United Way Pacesetter company, one of the companies which completes its campaign prior to the general community campaign kick-off event, which is slated this year for September 2. Members of the Target United Way campaign team gathered for a photo recognizing the teams fundraising success.

Courtesy photoTarget Distribution completes its United Way campaign 2 Tbsp. of your favorite steak rub 2 Tbsp. of Worcestershire sauce 1 Tbsp. of spicy mustard 1 Tbsp. of crushed garlic 1 tsp. of salt 1 tsp. of black pepper Thoroughly mix these ingredients until all are completely incorporated. Now, cut six pieces of cling wrap. Take 1/6th of the beef and pork mixture and spread out on one of the cling wrap pieces. It should be long enough and wide enough to fully cover the hot dog, and it should be no more than inch thick. Place the hot dog in the middle of the patty and place string mozzarella cheese next to the hot dog. Now, pull the edges of the cling wrap up so the meat fully covers the hot dog. Firmly form the meat around the hot dog and tightly close the cling wrap around the meat. Place them in the refrigerator for an hour or so, allowing them to firm up a bit. Grill on your kettle grill using indirect heat for 20 to 30 minutes. If you use gas, do not grill directly over a burner. Then finish off over the direct heat while basting with your favorite barbecue sauce. Serve on a toasted sausage/brat bun and enjoy. Any beer or any wine works with this dish!

How to prevent falls Dear Savvy Senior, Can you write a column on fall prevention tips for elderly seniors? My 81year-old father, who lives alone, has fallen several times over the past year. What can you tell us? Concerned Daughter Dear Concerned, Falls are a big concern for millions of elderly Americans and their families. In the United States, roughly one-third of the 65-and-older population will suffer a fall this year, often with dire with consequences. But many falls can be prevented. Here are some steps you can take to help keep your dad up on his feet and reduce his risk of falling. Check his meds: Does your dad take any medicine or combination of medicines that make him dizzy, sleepy or lightheaded? If so, gather up all the drugs he takes
prescriptions and over-the-counter
and take them to his doctor or pharmacist for a drug review. Schedule an eye exam: Poor vision can be another contributor to falls. If your dad wears glasses, check to see if he s wearing the correct prescription and beware of bifocals. Multifo-Savvy Seniorcal glasses can impair vision needed for detecting obstacles and judging depth. Check his balance: Balance disorders
which can be brought on by a variety of conditions like inner ear problems, allergies, a head injury or problems with blood circulation
are also a common cause of falls. If you dad is having some balance issues, make an appointment with his doctor to get it checked and treated. Start exercising: Improving balance through exercise is one of the best ways to prevent falls. Strength training, stretching, yoga, tai chi are all great for building better balance. Some simple exercises that he can do anytime are walking heel-to-toe across the room, standing on one foot for 30 seconds or longer, or getting up from a chair and sitting back down 10 to 20 times. For more balance exercise tips, call the National Institute on Aging at 800222-2225 and order their free exercise DVD and free exercise book or you can see it online at go4life.niapublications.org. Modify his home: Because about half of all falls happen around the home, some simple modifications can go a long way in making your dad s living area safer. Start by picking up items on the floor that could cause him to trip like newspapers, books, shoes, cloths, electrical or phone cords. If he has throw rugs, remove them or use double-sided tape to secure them. In the bathroom put a non-slip rubber mat or self-stick SEE SAVVY, PAGE 3 1995 JEEP CHEROKEE $ 3,400 Call 386-362-4012 684365F

Also, make sure the lighting throughout the house is good, purchase some inexpensive plug-in nightlights for the bathrooms and hallways, and if he has stairs, consider putting hand rails on both sides. And in the kitchen, organize his cabinets so the things he uses most often are within easy reach without using a step stool. For more tips, call the Eldercare Locater at 800677-1116 and order a free copy of their Preventing Falls at Home brochure. Other pitfalls: Believe it or not, the improper use of canes and walkers sends around 47,000 seniors to the emergency room each year. If your dad uses a cane or walker, be sure its adequately adjusted to his height and that hes using it properly. A physical therapist can help with this, or see the Mayo Clinic slide show on how to choose and use a cane (mayoclinic.com/health/canes/HA00064) and a walker (mayoclinic.com/health/walker/HA00060 ). Another possible hazard is pets. If your dad has a dog or cat, he needs to be aware that because they can get under foot pets cause a lot of falls. Shoes are another issue to be aware of. Rubber-soled, lowheeled shoes are the best slip/trip proof shoes for seniors. Savvy Tip: Consider getting your dad a home monitoring system which is a small pendent-style SOS button that he wears that would allow him to call for help if he fell. Available through companies like lifelinesys.com and lifealert.com these systems cost around $1 per day. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

So last time I was at the dealer for routine maintenance, I noticed my sticker was about to expire. I asked the mechanic if he could do the inspection process and update the sticker. Complying with my request, he told me to sit in the driver's seat and follow his commands. "Put on the emergency flasher," he shouted. "Great. Hit the brakes," he replied. "Now turn on your headlights." But I was a little perplexed when he yelled, "Good. Now flash me your high beams." (Thanks to Janice F.) Reader Humor Laughs For Sale Duane Cash Holze & Todd Carry Holze www.ClassifiedGuys.com AccessorizeMany of the car components we regard as necessities started as options. Headlights originated in the late 1880's as optional detachable oil lamps fitted with reflectors and a handle. They were used to light the road and also detached to fix flats. As night driving became commonplace, oil lamps were replaced with acetylene (gas) headlamps that didn't blow out as easily. By 1898, electric head and tail lamps were introduced, and gasoline buggies were outfitted with the first car battery.Blue Light SpecialWhat's that blue light in your rear view mirror? No it's not the cops. It's the new Xenon headlight. Now becoming standard on some cars, these lights provide more than twice the illumination than their halogen counterparts. However, they do come at a price. The new lights can cost up to $800, making them a popular theft item on some models. Since their introduction, carmakers have redesigned their installation to make them tougher to steal. Fast FactsDear Classified Guys, My kids are in love with my father-inlaw's new car because it came with windshield wipers on the headlights. He made up a story that he pays a Smurf to live inside the car and turn the wipers on and off when it starts raining.As far as I'm concerned,a home for Papa Smurf might be those wipers only real function.It seems like an awfully silly feature. Could headlight wipers really improve our safety or is it just another gimmick?Cash:It's actually a little bit of both, depending on how you look at it. Carry:However, it is nice of your father-in-law to keep the Smurfs employed. There aren't many job opportunities out there for Smurfs.Cash:Over time, your headlights can collect road dust and dirt, diminishing the amount of light illuminating from the car, especially in the wintertime. I tend to like the idea of just pressing a button to turn on the headlight wipers and to clean the lights while still driving.Carry:Although, a paper towel at the gas station can accomplish the same thing. I, on the other hand, agree with our reader. The option is just plain silly. Today's cars, although more reliable than ever, are complicated enough. Headlight wipers with separate motors for each headlight and a pump for washer fluid is just one more thing to maintain. Apaper towel at the gas station doesn't need replacement parts.Cash:As you can see, even we have differing opinions on the feature.Carry:Saab was the first to introduce the headlight wiper in the early 1970's. Their goal was to make sure headlights were capable of illuminating the road with the maximum amount of light. It was such an innovative idea that Sweden, where Saab originated, made it mandatory on all cars sold in the country.Cash:Today, other automotive manufacturers around the world have added the feature to some of their high-end models. Carry:So as you can see, headlight wipers could be considered both a gimmick and a safety feature. But the concept of cleaning your headlights is an important safety issue. Next time you stop to fill up your gas tank, take a minute to wipe the dirt off your headlights.Cash:Otherwise, you can always employ a Smurf with a bottle of window cleaner!2004 Snob loaded, low miles.

JULY 27 & 28, 2011, PAGE 13CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE WWW.NFLAONLINE.COM SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA FAMILY FEATURES Did you know the average human can recognize 10,000 scents? Have you ever considered how directly your sense of smell is connected to cueing your emotions? Its for this reason, technically coined associative learning, that the fragrances around us can impact our mood and performance. Consider the feelings that just thinking about freshlylaundered towels, pumpkin pie, a crackling campfire, the salty ocean or baby powder evoke in you. For many people these strong scents trigger distinct memories or evoke a sentiment that can linger for hours. The same is true for the strong scent of a clean home. Smell is different from other senses because it is connected to the olfactory cortex, the part of the brain responsible for emotions and memory. In patients with dementia, schizophrenia or Alzheimers, medical experts can measure their sense of smell as one of the earliest indicators of change. As humans we tend to think of smell as one of our weaker senses, but the fact is it is far more connected to our performance than we might imagine.Boosting Study Time with a Clean Home A study shows that children who perform better at school almost always identify their homes with scents associated with clean. What is a clean home smell? That depends on what era you grew up in. During the 50s most people associated a clean home with a strong bleach scent. In the decades since then there has been a plethora of citrus and floral scented room freshening cleaners on the market. Generally speaking, when many people think of a clean smell, they think of Pine-Solcleaner. The study of nearly 5,000 high school students, conducted by Dr. Alan Hirsch and the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation, found top performing students (those with grade averages of A and B) overwhelmingly 84 percent used words like lemony, minty or clean to describe the smell of their childhood homes. More than one-third (34 percent) of lower performing students (average of C or below) associated negative smells urine, fecal matter or mold with their homes. A clean smelling home is just one component to the overall picture of how parents can provide a healthy and stimulating family environment, and help their children improve self-esteem and have a more positive learning experience, said Charmaine Hussain, marketing manager for Pine-Solbrand cleaners. We are excited by this research, as it really shows that there is a higher order need for cleaning. Its not just about a clean house its about the powerful difference parents can make in the lives of their children. What this study tells me is that there is a strong correlation between the memory of a clean-smelling home and academic success, added Dr. Hirsch. If you are in a home that has clean, pleasant aromas, it will promote success by enhancing harmony in the household. According to Hirsch, the brain makes similar associations about the smell of other situations and experiences from your past, and the effect plays out in your mood in the present. Photos courtesy of Getty Images Using scents to help enhance the home Using Scents in Your FavorScents can influence your weight, sleep patterns and more. When we understand the memories we associate with certain scents we can learn how to use them in our favor to change our mindset and improve the quality of our daily lives. For instance, researchers have found the following to be true for many people: Benefit and ScentSuggested Use Peppermint Energy; invigorates before a workout Jasmine Calming; bedtime Floral/Roses Lifts spirits; morning mood enhancer Lemon/Citrus Clear thinking; positive outlook; for home and surroundings Grapefruit Concentration booster and appetite suppressant Coconut Happiness; relaxed summer parties and social gatherings Spend a few minutes making a list of your favorite smells. You may surprise yourself with what you remember about what is most pleasing to you. Just creating a happy smells list is enough to elevate positive feelings for some people. And, when you know what aromatic triggers most relax and restore you, youll be equipped to set the mood in all the spaces where you spend your time.Rekindling a Positive ExperienceIf you need a shift in your mood, consider shifting the aroma to something that reminds you of a past success, said Hirsch. The old adage the sweet smell of success is actually quite poignant from a scientific standpoint. For some it might be the smell of a clean home, for others it might be the aroma of freshly-brewed coffee, and for others still it might be the refreshing smells of the early morning dew that trigger confiden ce and feelings of productivity. For parents who want their children to have lasting, warm memories of home, consider the aromas that greet your children after a long day of school, sports or after-school activities. The mood you set in your home now is creating a lifetime of positive associations. Getting t hat freshly-baked pumpkin bread in the oven can seem like much less of a sacrifice of time from this viewpoint. When seen from this larger perspective, a ctivities like baking, cleaning and even tending the garden become generous acts that do much more for the family than perhaps weve considered in recent years The aroma of a wellcared for home has much to do with feelings of success, harmony and happiness.
