Major Terry, a 34-year veteran
of the HCSO was the commanding
officer of the District IV office in
Ruskin from 1999 until his retire-
ment in 2003.
Terry was known as an officer
who exemplified law enforcement.
At District IV, he placed a strong
emphasis on officers becoming
involved in the communities they
served. He was also an avid out-
doorsman and fisherman. Upon his
retirement, his staff in Ruskin pre-
sented him with a fishing pole.
He was succeeded by Major Jerry
York, who retired in 2007. Upon
taking the helm from Terry, York
commented that he had "big shoes
to fill." Major Ronald Hartley is the
current District IV commanding of-
In addition to the HCSO, Terry
was an Army veteran and a law
enforcement officer with both the
Tallahassee Police Department and
the Leon County Sheriff's Office.
He was also a graduate of the FBI
He is survived by his wife Leilani
and his son, J.B.
A visitation was held on Thurs-
day with the funeral and internment

They do all sorts of weird stuff in Miami including, it seems, forcing
big ol' cruise ships to merge with traffic during rush hour. Well, not really.
But it looked like it in our last postcard from two weeks ago. But the first
part is true there is some weird stuff going on there but Miami is a
beautiful city, nonetheless. And, like it or not, it is ours and there is no
place else like it on earth. I had hoped that hardcore cruisers would have

Mayor presents check to American Red Cross
Sharil Nenarella, Honorary Mayor of Apollo Beach, and co-owner of
Hangovers Boutique, LLC, presented a check for $3,776 to Linda Billars
of the American Red Cross Wednesday, July 7. The amount represents
half of the funds raised in her campaign, the other half going to the the
Apollo Beach Chamber. The presentation was held at Hangovers Bou-
tique, 1311 Apollo Beach Blvd, Apollo Beach. Sharil Nenarella chose
the American Red Cross as her charity of choice for many reasons, "They
are the first responders to so many tragedies in the world, and do so much
more than many people know are in their realm of responsibilities."
Sharil would like to thank each and everyone of her supporters for their
time and effort as well as the funds they donated. The list is long, but
distinguished. Special thanks to her partner in business, Grace Whit-
myer for giving her the courage to do it, and the steady constant pressure
to stay the course. "I am looking forward to representing the Apollo
Beach community. I believe everyone should be active in supporting the
beautiful area we live in, we have so much to be proud of!"

S hours, days
What we do
Positive with our al-
Talk lotment of
By William Hodges time will de-
we get out of life. If we squander
time foolishly, we will find that
life will not reward us very well.
Even if we diligently use our time
to some purpose and work very
hard, if the purpose is not well
thought out, we can still lose out in
the reward department. Just work-
ing hard is not enough. We must
work smart and have a meaningful
direction in which to channel our
efforts. I cannot help you to choose
a direction, but here are some time
management thoughts about work-
1. The first rule of time man-
agement is to know what you are
currently doing. The only way to
do that is to keep a log of your ac-
tivities. The more specific you are
as to the time spent on each activ-
ity, the better able you will be to
ascertain how you are using your
time and where you will be able
to make changes. You may find
that you have fallen into routines
that can be shortened or even abol-
2. Plan your day as much in ad-
vance as possible. I have found
that if I wait until Monday morn-
ing to decide what I am going to do
Monday afternoon, I probably will
end up doing nothing on Monday
afternoon. Try to do your planning
a minimum of 48 hours ahead. Sit
down each night and review your
calendar for the next day.

3. Do operate from a "Things to
do" list. I find this to be one of my
most valuable assets. Once upon a
time, I used to operate from slips
of paper randomly scattered across
my desk. I think that somewhere
down deep, I hoped those slips of
paper would fall into oblivion and
I wouldn't have to worry about
them. I suspect many of them did,
but not to my betterment. I lost
those messages and the opportu-
nities they represented. Today, all
slips of paper are transferred to a
central list of things to do. They
can only be removed when they
have been completed, or I have
made a conscious choice not to do
4. Learn what time of day is most
productive for you. I am convinced
that there are morning people and
there are evening people. There
are also people who fall some-
where in between. While you are
keeping your time log, also make
note of what time of day you feel
the most mentally and physically
alert. Once you have determined
a pattern, choose the high mental
and physical alertness periods to
complete your most difficult proj-
Treat the time of your life like
gold. For it is indeed the coin with
which you pay for everything.
Once a minute is gone, it can never
be recaptured. Benjamin Franklin

it this way: "Dost thou love life?
Then do not squander time; for
that's the stuff life is made of."

Unsolicited emails or phone calls
asking for contributions, coupled

ones that request personal financial
information such as a social security
number, bank account or credit cards.
With that information, a scam artist
can clean out your bank account or
open a line of credit in your name.
Unsolicited loan offers or offers
of assistance with claims forms
BP has pledged to pay all cleanup
costs associated with the oil spill and
all legitimate claims for employees
or businesses that are able to docu-
ment financial losses as a result of
the environmental disaster. Other
citizens who are ineligible for re-
imbursement may be forced to seek
loans from banks or other financial
institutions if they have been nega-
tively impacted by the oil spill. Any
unsolicited offer that asks consumers
for personal financial information is
a red flag for a potential fraud, which
could enable con artists to clear out
your bank account or open a line of
credit in your name.
Bronson believes that it is com-
mendable that Floridians want to do
all they can to restore the Gulf Coast
to its pre-spill condition by donating
money to worthy causes, volunteer-
ing their time and even working in
paid positions involved in the clean-
up. And it is inevitable that some
citizens whose livelihoods have been
negatively impacted by the incident
need significant assistance.
"But it is critical that citizens who
want to help deal with legitimate or-
ganizations and that those who need
assistance deal with businesses and
financial institutions that will help,
not hurt them," Bronson said.

The moment you tum off of
US Highway 19 to Highway 24
bound for Cedar Key, you know
you have entered a different kind
of Florida the Old Florida. The
road is almost entirely devoid of
traffic. Otter Creek, Ellzey and
Rosewood are the towns you pass,
each with homes bearing open
windows to catch the breeze in
the summer heat. The back roads
and highways are nearly empty
of traffic. This is not the Florida
most people have come to know
Oil is not washing up on the
beaches of this island. There are
no tar balls. The water isn't the
blue-green of the Keys, but it is
cleaner, nearly pristine. There are
dolphins an estimated 300 of
them that live around the island
year around. And there are fish
and egrets, herons and osprey that
make up a seemingly endless ar-
ry of wildlife.
It is 2:30 a.m. at the Faraway
Inn on Cedar Key. The distant
squall has faded and a cool breeze
has softened the warm, humid
air from hours earlier. The young
women have returned to their
rooms at a bed and breakfast up
the street. The full moon reflects
upon the water and upon the
Amidst the tranquility in this
late hour comes the realiza-

finite number of tomorrows. It is
possible, however, to take advan-
tage of time. It moves slowly on
Like most businesses on the
island, the Faraway Inn is not
owned by a faceless corporation,
but by a couple who call Cedar
Key home. Oliver and Doreen
Bauer have owned the motel since
2000. They have weathered both
hurricanes and crises such as
September 11 and, more recently,
the economic downturn. Through
it all they have created an oasis of

peace and tranquility. They have
worked to make their inn a home
"We have tried to make the kind
of place where you don't feel like
you need a vacation after your
vacation," Oliver said.
On a recent weekday, Doreen
and Oliver held an office meet-
ing of sorts with their three
employees. The meeting was
offsite aboard a pontoon boat
anchored in the cove of a nearby
island. Dolphins swam, pelicans
floated and mullets jumped as
sandwiches were consumed over
laughter and stories. Oliver said
that perhaps only one in 500
guests caused headaches. But
when asked for specifics, he
could only recall one. That man
complained about the color of the
meticulously painted walls, the
fluffy towels, the soft pillows and
even the bedspreads.
"It turned out he was a drinker
and he hadn't had a drink in a

Oliver said with a smile. "Once

he had a shot of whiskey, he was
pretty happy with everything."
"I can only recall getting angry
once. No, twice. No, three times,"
Doreen added as everyone on the
boat laughed. In the end, she, too,
could only describe one time.
With just the slightest twist of
fate, Oliver may have been a hard
charging business owner in New
York City with a couple of heart
attacks under his belt and a siz-
able bank account. Doreen may
well have been a high level ex-

was left by two Florida natives,
"Most of Florida's coastal areas
don't even resemble the Florida
that we knew," they wrote. "It is
wonderful and refreshing to visit
Cedar Key and see that there is
an Old Florida community that
has been preserved. This is a very
More than a few notes were left
by furrier guests, signing their
names with paw prints. Their
owners thrilled to find a place in
which they can vacation with their
canine companions. Doreen and
Oliver are animal lovers and the
Faraway Inn is very pet friendly.
The couple also founded and
manages a neutering program for
feral cats on the island. To date,
they have neutered and released
nearly 700 cats.
Reading the guestbook, history
unfolds and it is clear that lives
are started, built and refreshed
here. One couple writes of their
wedding on the veranda. Another
writes of celebrating their fourth
anniversary here, in the place they
married, but now of also enjoy-
ing the presence of their young
daughter. Another couple writes
of how much they enjoyed their
30th anniversary on the island
upon which they were married.
Almost every note mentions
how much they want to return.
For those guests, this is the right
Doreen quickly learned how
attached her guests became to

hoped to maintain a connection

said. "But I was really surprised

afternoon sky had given way to
darkness of another night. The
quiet island became still in the
late hours. Soon I would be leav-

way out I lingered, driving slowly
down Dock Street, the thorough-
fare through the tiny downtown.
Like someone blinking the sleep
out of their eyes, the community
was beginning to come to life
for another day. At the boat ramp
downtown, a fisherman a man
who actually worked on the sea
for a living helped a group of
tourists launch their shiny, new
powerboat. It is a near certainty

man earned in several years. But

Cedar Key is more than a pre-
served Old Florida community. It
is a living example of the Good
Old Days. Like everywhere else,
there are problems and chal-
lenges. But on this island, time
has moved more slowly. Visiting
Cedar Key is like stepping back
in time to a day when simple
courtesy still mattered.
The drive is short by miles, but
long in the changing attitude.
Back through Rosewood, Ellzey
and Otter Creek, through the stop-
lights in Crystal River, and then
the traffic, freeways and bustle
of the Tampa Bay metropolitan
area is only a few hours; but is
now viewed with an entirely new
perspective. Driving south on
the Veterans Expressway, I think
about the peace and solitude only
a few hours removed. I decide to
call Doreen when I get home. Just
to say, "Hi".

to retirees over the age of 58 as

Point the summer.
By Karey Burek With but-
mingbirds in massive amounts
fluttering around the house, it is
no wonder that flowers are yearn-
ing to be pollinated and putting on
their best color show.
One flower in particular that
caught my attention was the wild
petunia; not quite purple but defi-
nitely not blue. It is a color com-
bination that some wildflower
websites have dubbed "burple"
because it is a delicate mix of all
violet and blue hues. The trumpet
shape makes it a divine flower for
pollinators to visit because it pro-
vides protection from predators.
However, the pollinators have to
work at it because the nectar is
deep inside the petals.
It is a short plant and if you
aren't looking for it, it is not un-
common to walk right by without
a second look. They are true wild-
flowers and can be observed in
preserves and forests in dry soil.
The seeds can be bought online
at wild flower farm or nurseries.
According to finegardening.com
the wild petunia originated in Ar-
gentina and actually is one of the

* By PENNY FLETCHER
APOLLO BEACH How many
times have we made the statement,
"I'm just dying for water?"
Probably hundreds over our life-
times. Or even thousands- at the
beach; on a long car ride, or after
an hour or so of yard work under
the hot Florida sun.
Well, when homebuilder Andy
Schmidt and his colleagues hear
those words, they are often a cry
that can mean the difference be-
tween life and death. And this group
responds by providing clean water
for drinking, cooking and washing
clothes in parts of the world that
even the poorest Americans can
only try to imagine.
As part of the "Into Africa" min-
istry, Andy has used his talents as
a volunteer to dig wells for people
whose anticipated life span is only
36 years because of diseases, con-
taminated water, starvation, and the
constant threat of internal wars.
Andy's story begins with a friend-

a church in Indianapolis, Indiana.
But we continued to communicate,

"They provide the basic neces-

that's where we come in. I know
how to drill wells, and teach others
to drill wells."
By 2002, Andy was hooked and
had brought several of his local
friends into the action: including
builders Jim McCullough and Dave
Scott (of McCullough & Scott De-
velopers of Tampa Bay); two of
Pastor Van Deman's sons, Bill and
Ben, and his friend and associ-

streams filled with debris, insects

"Since I've been involved, we've

other equipment in many others,"
Andy says he has traveled there
nine times since 2002. The last
time was in April when he was ac-

While in Rwanda, Andy's group
had the ability to work beside the
REACH Rwanda, an organization
that exists to serve people in their
journey toward healing and recon-
ciliation after the genocide of more
than 800,000 people in 1994.
"It's just amazing how the people
who have been in jail for murders
are forgiven by the families of
those they've killed," Andy said.
"Sometimes if they get out (of pris-
on) they build houses for and help
support the victim's families."
REACH Rwanda is part of the
national group Reach USA, which
locally, may be contacted through
Gerry Gardner at (941) 927-1717
Meanwhile, Andy's next planned
trip is in October. Since the slow-
down of Florida's construction
industry, Andy says his biggest
donors the developers have
stopped helping the organization
due to lack of funds.
Any donations of equipment or
experienced manpower, especially
well-drillers willing to donate time
to fix problems in existing wells
and put up some new ones in the
fall would be appreciated, he said.

For most women, summer is the
dreaded season of bathing suits
and bare legs -- a time when hid-
ing behind your wardrobe isn't an
easy option. If you're tired of your
summer staples and want to heat
up those balmy nights out with a
look that screams summer, you're
in luck. The transition from bulk-
ier cool-weather clothes to slim-
downed summer sleek is easier
than you think.
Many women are perplexed
when it comes to summer style.
They struggle to find the balance
between staying cool while main-
taining a look that is both clas-
sic and functional -- and one that
doesn't consist of only flip flops!
In all actuality, summer is the
perfect opportunity to blend clas-
sic pieces with trendier looks. And
you don't have to bare it all to do it.
Read on for eight simple tips that
will create lovely summer looks
from now until Labor Day (and
Say hello to summer with sun-
kissed skin. Nothing says summer
like a sun-kissed glow. But relying
on the harmful UV rays that come
with sunbathing just isn't smart.
Embrace sunless tanning as an
integral part of your summer look.
Whether you pay a professional or
use an at-home self-tanning prod-
uct, there are plenty of options for
every budget. I recommend using
Neutrogena MicroMist or Jergens
Natural Glow Foam. Both will
give you a healthy glow and allow
you to embrace your bare legs in
short dresses and cropped pants.
It's in the bag. Don't just swap
long sleeves for short; update your
accessories as well. Trade in your
black suede handbag for either a
metallic, pale leather or neutral
straw bag. A simple switch of your
handbag can go a long way in
summer-izing any outfit.
White hot. Say good-bye to
winter white and hello to a pair of
crisp white bottoms -- a must for
every summer wardrobe. Pairing
almost anything with white bot-
toms creates a look that is very
fresh for the season. Buy a pair of
white jeans, cropped pants, shorts,
or even a skirt. You'll look crisp
and fresh, and your tops will pop
against the white base.
Make a little wiggle room. If
your shoes are looking a little
worse-for-the-wear after spring's
torrential downpours, worry no
more! This season, you can switch
out those restrictive closed-toe
pumps and flats for open-toe
shoes and sandals. But don't for-
get to properly primp your toes!
Pedicures are a must during the
Think twice before you slide on
sandals for work -- not all offices
deem open-toe as office-appropri-
ate. Instead, try slipping a dressier
pair in your handbag that you can
slip on later before heading out to
Polish it off. Summer is a great
time to experiment with fun new
shades of nail polish. Try a new
bright pink or coral polish on your
toes and consider a pale pink or
nude shade for your fingertips.
These cool colors will be sure to
complement any summer outfit
you throw on.
Lighten up. (Your locks, that
is!) If you've been sporting a dark
'do all winter, it may be time to
try something new. If the darker
hue of your hair is bringing you
down, you may want to try to
brighten your hair color for the
season. Subtle highlights can pack
a big punch and make you look
like you've spent a weekend on
the beach (and not a day in the
Minimize when you acces-
sorize. For the summer months,
it's best to lighten up on your
accessories. Choose lighter
jewelry such as crystals and select
other accessories in lighter hues
to get you through the hot sum-
mer months. You'll not only look
better, you'll feel much better in
the hot sun!
Shop for one special top.
Whether it is a cute t-shirt, flow-
ing tunic, or a simple white shirt,
choose something that will work
with all of the bottoms you have
from last season. Remembering
the cute pieces you already own
certainly makes updating your
summer look easier.
The summer season is the perfect
opportunity to try out new trends
and flirty looks that you may oth-
erwise shy away from. Embrace
the attitude of summer: the vibrant
colors, the relaxed atmosphere, and
the buzzing excitement of those
unforgettable summer nights. It
will show on your face and in
your attitude -- and no matter what
clothes you may wear, you'll look
and feel simply fabulous.

Recall of Kids' Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec,
43 Liquid Child/Infant Products Recalled by Johnson and John-

By Daniel J. DeNoon
Manufacturing defects have led
to the recall of 43 child and infant

cited more than 20 manufacturing
problems at the Fort Washington,
No injuries or deaths have yet
been reported. The voluntary re-
call follows an April 19 FDA in-
spection of a McNeil plant in Fort

"manufacturing deficiencies," the
Washington Post reports.
The company says the chances
of injury from one of the recalled
products are "remote." Yet con-
sumers are warned not to use the
"Some of the products included
in the recall may contain a higher
concentration of active ingredient
than is specified; others may con-
tain inactive ingredients that may
not meet internal testing require-
ments; and others may contain tiny
particles," a company news release
If children who have taken the
recalled products have unusual
symptoms, parents are urged to
contact a health care professional.
Parents should not give children

tions. Alternative brands of the
products, including generic medi-
cations, are available. Parents who
have questions about alternative
treatments should consult their
Recalled products may be re-
turned for a refund or exchanged
for a fresh product once manufac-

Hunters that take quality
deer year after year aren't lucky,
they're good. That's because
when you're sitting at home
in the air conditioning during
the heat of August, they're
out in the woods scouting and
learning the travel, feeding, and
bedding routines of deer long
before the season starts.
It doesn't matter where you
live, deer movement patterns
will be determined by food,
water, cover, terrain, and
hunting pressure. Their food
source is probably the most
critical and if you can find a
watering area with heavy cover
nearby, that's even better.
Use a topographic map to
find funnels, saddles, and edges
that they will use to conceal
their movements. Even try to
figure out where other hunters
might accidentally drive deer
Don't over-scout, end your
scouting by the end of August,
and wait until the season opens
before entering the area again.

where Wayne keeps his prize pos-

Near his easel are paintings remi-

Tampa's new high-rise skyline.
Sometimes, he says, he shoots
photographs and then later paints
from the pictures.
Showing me a photograph he re-

he told me he'd taken it through
the car window while his wife was
driving about 60 mph. "Shot it right
through the glass," he exclaimed,
showing off his latest digital Nikon.
"This is a real beauty," he added.
Going through the paintings I
could see things I remembered
having seen in life years ago: an
old pump Esso station; a car with
running boards. And modern shots
of trees, flowers, buildings, orange
groves and tomato fields. But the
photographs he has taken of Florida
aren't all he has in his collection.
"I love to travel," he told me as
he flipped from one file to another
on his computer. There I saw sun-
sets over tropical islands, deserts,
mountains, woods, and waterfalls,
and flowers and animals of all

featured Apache smoke dances and
Zunis in the New Mexico desert.
He's been the historian for the
Florida Agricultural Hall of Fame
at the Florida Fairgrounds for many
years, and because of that, the Uni-
versity of Florida gave him a grant
to put a book together about the
state together with his son Sean,
who after obtaining a degree from
the Ringling School of Art opened
a graphics company in Sarasota.
Wayne worked on the content and
Sean designed the pages in four

I didn't expect a man who spent
much of his life turning companies

be sharp because banks could only
own a company for a short time, so
they either had to be made profit-
able or dismantled.

I did 17 of them and never had one

Going from one business to an-
other- whether building materials or
newspapers- he learned a lot about
different businesses in a hurry.
"The most interesting thing I
remember doing was taking a

that was down to 6 pages to a 40-

cleaning up the beaches is very personal to me.
Keith Seilhan, BP Cleanup
Making This Right
Health and Safety
For information visit: bp.com
At BP we have taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. We are
committed to keeping you informed.
Looking For Oil
Crews are cleaning Gulf Coast beaches 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When oil is spotted, the Response Command Center is notified, a
Shore Cleanup Assessment Team (SCAT) is mobilized and cleanup begins
immediately. Cleanup efforts are being coordinated from 17 staging
areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Over 33,000 people
are involved in the cleanup operation.
If you see oil on the beach, please call 1-866-448-5816 and we'll send a
team to clean it up.
Cleaning Up the Beaches
The number of people mobilized to clean up the beaches depends on the
size of the affected area. Individual teams can number in the hundreds,
and thousands of additional workers remain on-call. Working with the
Coast Guard, our teams continue cleaning up until the last bit of oil has
been removed. As a result, in most cases when oil reaches a beach, it is
even possible to keep it open.
Our beach cleanup operations will continue until the last of the oil has
been skimmed from the sea, the beaches and estuaries have been cleaned
up, and the region has been pronounced oil-free. And none of the costs
of our efforts will be paid by taxpayers.
Our commitment is that we'll be here for as long as it takes. We may not
always be perfect, but we will make this right.
For assistance, please call:
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401

Cheaper space saver bags
You can create your own space saver bags. Buy a box of heavy-duty
plastic lawn trash bags or heavy duty fifty-gallon drum liners. These are
typically about $15 for a box of one hundred at wholesale clubs. Place
your neatly folded items in the bag, add a bay leaf to repel bugs (you can
find these in the baking section of most food stores) and then tie off the
end with a plastic zip tie (the kind you have to cut to open).
Make sure it's tied off very tightly. Then use your vacuum cleaner hose
or dirt devil hose to suck out the extra air through the opening. No matter
how tight you tie off the bag, air will still come out. The bag will shrink
down, and the opening will tighten. Plus, the heat from the vacuum
cleaner will melt the opening of the bag, sealing it from air and bugs.

The Wildlife Forecast: Surviving a Florida summer requires a dip in the springs Sun City Center
by Patricia Behnke Women's Golf Assoc.
Florida's Paleo-Indians believed
sacred water filled the springs and
the magical waters held the cure
to all human ills. The Timucuans
roamed the shores of the spring-fed
rivers of North Florida and settled
there for the life-sustaining food
and water the springs provided.
Spanish explorers thought they had
discovered the elixir for perpetual
youth when they stumbled upon
the crystal clear gems while explor-
ing Florida. In the recent past, the
springs have served as the backdrop
for baptisms, weddings, vacation
get-aways and reunions. Today,
many of them are state parks and
remain intertwined with our lives.
But even before the Timucuans
roamed North Florida, wildlife
depended upon the springs. Gar,
bowfin and sturgeon ancient liv-
ing fossils still inhabit the waters
of the springs and river runs. The
springs environment hosts species
found nowhere else in the world.
Blind cave crayfish, blind cave
shrimps and other specialized cave-
dwelling crustaceans are highly de-
pendent on the system. Fish, such
as American eels and catfish, take
refuge in underwater caves, and
striped bass seek out cooler wa-
ters of springs to escape the heat
of summer river waters in Florida.
The visible wildlife using spring
systems from great blue herons to
deer depend upon the ecosystem's
delicate balance of all creatures liv-

To prevent the springs from disap-

need to conserve them because ac-

"Less rainfall will have a direct
impact on already-stressed springs
by reducing average annual flow,"
said Kent Smith, a Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) biologist who was the agen-
cy's representative to the governor's
springs task force and continues to
work on the interagency committee
that is implementing that group's
work. "The drier climate will af-
fect the recharge of the springs, re-
ducing the flow and increasing the
concentration of nitrates because of
a reduction in discharge volume."
Jim Stevenson, a retired chief bi-
ologist with Florida's Department
of Environmental Protection and
now coordinating the Wakulla and
Ichetucknee Springs Basin Work-
ing Groups, sees the current situa-
tion with the springs as a two-fold
"There are two major things that
impact the health of the springs: the
quantity of spring flow and quality
of the water," he said. "The U.S.
Geological Survey has said that the
Ichetucknee's flow is down 15 per-
cent. Homsby Springs on the Santa
Fe River is a first magnitude spring,
and there are times it doesn't flow."
And then there's Fanning Springs
on the Suwannee River near Chief-
land, which Stevenson calls the
"poster child for spring degrada-

Ideas on immigration
The growing national debate on creating and adopting a fair and rea-
sonable immigration policy for all Americans has caused me to conduct
some historical research and I would like to share one of these findings
with your readers.
Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on immigrants and being an AMERICAN
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who come
here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us,
he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an
outrage to discriminate against any such man because ofcreed, or birth-
place, or origin. But this is predicted upon the person becoming in
every facet an American, and ,i. 'rii : but an American...There can be
no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but
... *,. ii,,:i else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and
that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty
and that is a loyalty to the American people. "
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
Here we are more than 100 years later and President Roosevelt's views
remain sound and continue to ring true for me. In fact, to do anything less
should be considered to be Un-American!

Daniel J. Mountcastle, M.D., FAAEM, Board Certified,
Ohio State University College of Medicine
Or. MIountcastle has performed orer
5,000 successful non-surgical procedures since 2006.
Mountcastle Vein Centers is staffed with board certified physicians.
who only specialize in vein treatment and care.
New technology has paved the way for our physicians to now treat Peripheral Vein Disease
(PVD) without surgery or harmful medications.
Today's treatments have so advanced that patients have no physical restrictions after their
EVLT (Endovenous Laser Treatment) procedures, and are encouraged to continue right away
with their normal everyday routines and activities.
Peripheral Vein Disease is easily diagnosed with a medical history, and by performing an
ultrasound in one of our local offices.
Cutting edge ultrasound technology allows the physician and patient to immediately view
ultrasound images that clearly indicate venous insufficiency.
The ultrasound is performed in under 40 minutes and leaves no doubt about whether a patient is
suffering from venous insufficiency or PVD.
If you've had an ultrasound lying in a horizontal position a good portion of the circulatory vein
system in your legs could be missed.
Mountcastle Vein Centers performs all ultrasounds in a standing position to insure an accurate
diagnosis of Peripheral Vein Disease.
