Blountstown shutout 43-0

Trinity Catholic

road to state

The road to this
year's state champion-
ship game crumbled
Beneath them \\hen the
Blountstown. Tigers
were shutout 43-0 by-
Trinitv Catholic in a
game that featured more
flag-\ avying than a Vet-
erans Day parade.
Officials were busy
dropping yellow flags as

'I want to make
it clear that this
football team is
30-3 in the last 33
games. They've
things that have
never been
here before."
BHS Coach
Bobby Johns

the Tigers racked up 16 penalties for 119 yards
at the state semifinals in Ocala No%. 25. The
Tigers' sole touchdown of the night \ which
came on a run up the middle by Arsen io I ory
- was called back on a holding penalty and
three Blountstown players \ ere ejected from
the game during the third quarter.
That night, his team had to do
something they haven't done in a
long time, said BHS Coach Bobby
Johns: They lost.
And not only did they lose, they
did it poorly, he admits.
"It's a shame our kids lost their
composure," Johns said. "They
were under a lot of pressure and
they could feel it slipping away
from them. They let their emotions
get away from them."
He said the blame should be laid
on him and not the kids because he
simply had not prepared them for
failure. "The problem is, this group
hasn't had to be gracious losers very
often," he said, acknot- ledging that
this \~as their second consecutive Bob M

Rescue workers stage graphic 'emergency'

to show the dangers
As part of last month's Calhoun County
Schools' Red Ribbon Week activities,
firefighters from the Blountstown Fire
Department, Emergystat EMS workers
and Blountstown Police officers joined
together with the Blountstown Middle School

^% s. lbla^i^^iB^^

of drinking and driving
Leadership Class to show the dangers of driving
while intoxicated.
Using'a car donated by Mallory Towing,
students were presented with a simulated traffic
crash involving their own BMS classmates.
The onlookers were told that while their
parents were away, the students involved in
the crash began drinking alcohol and took an
older sibling's car on a "joyride." While doing
doughnuts in the BMS parking lot, the car
overturned several times, ejecting and fatally
injuring one, trapping two and causing minor
injuries to the intoxicated driver.
Firefighters, EMS workers and police officers
responded to the staged scene as if it were real
during the Oct. 24 demonstration. Paramedics
and EMTs from Emergystat began patient
assessments, law enforcement began securing
the scene and the crew of BFD's Rescue One
began extricating the entrapped passengers.
Each of the workers who participated knew
all to well how real this seemed, as each of
them have encountered a similar situation in
their careers.
It is hoped that through this demonstration,
young students and drivers will think before they
drink, and not drink and drive.

A Liberty County man sustained minor injuries when he totaled his vehicle in a one-car
accident Tuesday afternoon not far from his residence in the Roy Community near Rock
Bluff. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Ira Lee was traveling south on County
Road 270 shortly before 4 p.m. when he missed a curve. The 2003 Nissan four-door
grazed a tree, which caused the car to veer onto its left side. The car then hit another
group of trees and straighted out as it rotated. The driver, Ira Lee, told a trooper that
he'd been traveling about 60 mph in the 35 mph zone when he lost control of the car.
,Lee was wearing his seat belt and his air bags deployed. Charges are pending the
results of blood alcohol testing. Two or three months earlier, a pickup registered to Lee
was found wrecked not far from the scene of Tuesday's accident. JOHNNY EUBANKS

Crime Stoppers is a nonprofit organization that promotes a partnership between the media, law enforcement and
the community. Big Bend Crime Stoppers was started more than twenty years ago by a group of concerned citizens
and the Tallahassee Police Department, covering all six counties of the Big Bend: Franklin, Gadsden, Jefferson,
Liberty, Leon and Wakulla.

People in the community with information about a crime can call our number at 891-HELP or toll free at 1-866-979-
0922. These calls are not recorded and we do not use Caller ID. When information is given the caller receives a

According to a new report out of

to bomb the al-Jazeera TV network,
but was met with disagreement by

Did anyone have one of these
turduckens for Thanksgiving? It's a
turkey stuffed inside a duck stuffed
inside a chicken. That pretty much
sounds like the birdflu trifecta!

M y work requires that I spend
a lot of time in my truck. As I
drive from job site to job site, I listen to
National Public Radio. During the week
prior to Thanksgiving, NPR ran a series
of stories about America's working poor.
The following statistics and discussions
are from the NPR broadcast that occurred
from November 21 to November 23.
T- he Economic Research Service of the
U.S. Department of Agriculture conducted
a survey of 50,000 people last year to de-
termine if people in America get enough to
eat. The survey indicated that 250 million
of us are "food secure," meaning that we
get enough to eat each day.
The bad news is that the survey indi-
cated that about 38 million Americans are
Classified as "'food insecure," meaning
that they can't be sure that they will have
enough money for food. According to the
Survey, a third of that group goes without
eating at times.
About 17 percent of people living
in large cities say that- they don't have
enough to eat. It isn't much better in rural
areas where 15 percent of the people say
that they don't have enough to eat.
Many will think that this discussion is
about people on welfare. Some are, many
According to the NPR report, in 2001,
America's Second Harvest surveyed
S32,000 people that were receiving emer-
Sgency food from food banks and food
pantries and found that 40 percent of-
Sthe families had at least one adult that
The working poor, people living on
the edge, have to make a choice between
eating and paying their bills. Some 45
percent of those surveyed said that they
had to.make a choice between buying
food and paying the utility bills. About
30 percent said that they had to make a
choice between buying food and paying
for medicines.

economy, but'the marketplace isn't fair
'-to all.-

issues. He lives in Shalimar, Fla.

paid in 23 of the states. Two states pay
less than federal minimum wage, and 15
states pay a minimum wage higher than
the federal minimum wage. Florida is
one of the 15 states that pays a minimum
wage higher than that required by the
federal government. Interestingly, Loui-
siana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee,
South Carolina and Arizona do not have
a minimum wage law.
At $5.15 per hour, the working poor
gross $10,712 per year based on working
40 hours per week for 52 weeks. Even
without paying income taxes, $10,712
won'tbuy much, particularly for a person
supporting a family. High rates of poverty
.are found in Appalachia, the Mississippi
Delta, along the U.S./Mexico border and
on Indian reservations.
Being on food stamps doesn't bring a lot
to the dinner table. According to the NPR
report, the U.S. Department ofAgriculture
says that the average food stamp monthly
benefit is $86 per person and about $200

per household. The USDA states that the
food stamp program reduces hunger, but
does not eliminate hunger for the family
living below the poverty level.
Politicians were pleased with them-
selves when they passed the Welfare Re-
form Act in the early 1990s. To hear the
politicians tell it, they ended welfare, as
we know it and booted all those. welfare
queens off the welfare roles.
The statistics are that because of wel-
fare reform, the number of people receiv-
ing food stamps declined dramatically
between 1995 and 2000, but the irony is
that the poverty rate was increasing during
the same period. With more people below
the poverty level and the government re-
ducing the availability of food stamps or
other assistance, more people were forced
use food banks.
It is a sad commentary for America
that we spend $6 billion per month in Iraq
when 38 million Americans go hungry,
can't pay their bills and can't buy their
medicines. At 38 million, there are more
hungry Americans than the 25 million
people in Iraq that President Bush is so
jacked out of shape about. Go figure.;
The holiday season is a happy time
for most Americans, but a sad time for
America's working poor.

Hospital -- all expressed anger
and frustration with statements
like: "We've fought well." "We're
helping to create a democracy."
"Don't they want us to win?"
That's a valid question. Even
Senate Republicans don't seem
to know what they want. As the
"World's Greatest Deliberative
Body" was exploring how to set
a "date certain" for withdraw-
ing troops without setting a
certain date, Sen. John Cornyn,
R-Texas, said, "Americans do
not cut and run, Americans do
not abandon their commitments
and Americans do not abandon
their friends." But he voted for
the measure anyway.
About the only ones in Wash-
ington who seem to know what
they want are the leaders of
the Democratic party. Senate

2002, waited until President

the Prime Minister of Japan to
proclaim that, "Democrats and
Republicans acknowledged that
staying the course is not the way
to go." He then summed it all up
by adding, "This is a vote of no
confidence on the Bush-adminis-
tration policy in Iraq."
William Jefferson Blythe Clin-
ton knows what this is all about.
Though the Clinton administra-
tion had advocated the overthrow
of Saddam in 1998, he told a
university audience in Dubai this
week that the Iraq war was "a big
mistake." Like former President
Jimmy Carter, Mr. Clinton ap-
parently no longer feels bound

by the affront to our troops or
the traditional protocols that
once governed political discourse
while overseas.
In the House, Pennsylva-
nia's John Murtha, an influential
Democrat who voted in favor of
Iraq war in 2002, called for the
immediate withdrawal of U.S.
troops saying, "it is evident that
continued military action in Iraq
is not in the best interests of the
United States of America, the
Iraqi people or the Persian Gulf
The GOP leadership, senior
administration officials and the
president need to dramatically
alter the debate. They need to go
to Iraq -- talk to the troops and
reassure them that we will stay
there long enough to get the job
done and not one second longer.
Notwithstanding the "peace in
our time" appeasement sentiment
sweeping through our capital, it's
not too late. Republicans need to
realize that winning the war in
Iraq is the only issue that really
matters right now. It is more im-
portant than Medicare, the next
Supreme Court justice, foreign
trade deals or tax reform.
If we lose the war -- and we
could -- none of these things will

Area Rugs 5'5" x 8

by Ryan McDougald
Text: Ephesians 6:10-18
Can you complete the following
sentence? "Watch it wiggle. See it
." "Where's the ?"
"Plop, plop ." "Good to
the last ____." "Can you hear me
I don't like Jello, but I can remem-
ber that it jiggles. It has been years
since I discovered the beef was at
Wendy's. I can't remember when I've
had an Alka Seltzer that fizz, fizzed.
Maxwell House has been good to the
last drop since I was born. And I don't
own a cell phone, but I know I can hear
with Verizon wireless.
It amazes me at the pure junk that
gets stuckin my head without me real-
izing it. The above jingles and catch
phrases may be harmless, but we must
be very careful what we allow in our
minds. Some thoughts, ideas, desires,
and fantasies can be very dangerous. It
is imperative that we guard our minds
with the Helmet of Salvation.
James said, "every man is tempted,
when he is drawn away of his own
lust and enticed. Then when lust hath
conceived, it bringeth forth sin; and
sin, when it is finished bringeth forth
death (KJV)." The battle with tempta-
tion is fought in the mind. A desire
can become an evil thought when we
think of an ungodly way to fulfill the
desire. The evil desire gives birth to
sin when we act upon it. When sin
goes unchecked and unforgiven, it
ends in death.
If we fill our minds with sinful
thoughts, they can come back in a tor-
rent during a weak moment enticing
us to act sinfully: The cuss word you
overlook repeatedly on TV might slip
out of your mouth when you mash your
finger in the door. That may seem like
a small, petty thing, but even the vilest
sin begins with a single thought.

Nine experimental planes fly in for local gathering

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
When R.L; "Bob" Mayo says
a few friends dropped by his
place, he's not kidding.
The 82-year-old Calhoun
County native hosted a fly-in
for fellow experimental airplane
enthusiasts on Nov. 19. Nine
airplanes dropped down onto
his 2,700-foot runway while a
few other guests arrived by car
at his place on Bob Mayo Lane,
seven miles west of Clarksville.
He knew about half of the 26
visitors who'd learned about
the lunch invitation through an
internet posting done by a friend
in Oregon and made friends
with the rest as they gathered to
enjoy their hobby.
"We just sat around and
talked and bragged about our
aircraft," said Mayo of the day's
gathering. He served his visi-
tors burgers, salad, tea and des-

sert as they traded stories about
their adventures building and
flying their own single-engine

"Every one was homebuilt,"
Mayo said of his visitors' air-
planes. He said they talked
about the work that went into
putting together the small air-
planes as well as the places they
liked to travel. His guests flew
in from Panama City, Destin,
Lake City and Dublin;,Ga. Da-
vid Gugger. 67, a semi-retired
general contractor, covered
the most miles, coming from
Day tona Beach in-his Harmon
Rocket II two-seater that took
two years to build.
Mayo, who's been a pilot
for 60 earus. takeout his alu-
minum RV9 plane frequently,
although he's not yet spent as
much time in the air with it as he
has on the ground. It took him
1100 hours over a nine-month
period to put together the alu-
minun plane from a kit. He's
since gotten in about 32 hours
in the air and is looking forward
to many more.
He enjoys making short trips
over Calhoun and Jackson coun-
ties. "I just fly around an hour
or two and land," he says of his
solo sightseeing trips, explain-

ing, "I use it for relaxing...I just
go up and look at the country."
He's been a pilot for 60 years.
During World War II he was a
flight instructor, teaching pilots
how to handle B-24 bombers.
He's never-crashed and has a
lot of confidence in his aircraft.
"A homebuilt aircraft is as
safe as the pilot, as long as the
pilot knows his ability and the
plane's," he said, adding. "It's
safer than an automobile."
From his vantage point of
3.000 feet in the air, "You find a
lot of things people don't know

a beautiful country, especially
around the Apalachicola and

Following a couple of big
floods in recent years, Mayo
took to the sky to survey the
spread of the rivers across
homes and pastures. He said
it was fascinating to see the
changes in the landscape under
those conditions, noting how
the waters surrounded homes

Bobwhite quail numbers nosedive; leaders seek cure

Wildlife conservation
authorities met at Tall Timbers
Research StationnearTallahassee
recently to map a plan to reverse
a 25-year decline in Florida's
bobwhite quail population..
According to the Northern
Bobwhite Conservation
Initiative (NBCI), Florida's quail
population has dropped between
3 and 5 percent each year for
a total decrease of 70 percent
since 1980. Experts say that is
merely a symptom of a much
bigger problem loss of quality
habitat. Where hunters in Florida
were once harvesting around 2.5
Million quail annually during the
1960s, they are now taking fewer
than a quarter-million.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) in cooperation with
S Tall Timbers, called on Florida
Agriculture Commissioner

-The number of hunters in
this state has been declining
significantly. and I feel we
can help turn this around by

increasing quality hunting lands

down the hunting tradition to

said Kate Ireland, chair of Tall

owner of Foshalee Plantation.
Other states within the
bobwhite quail's range,
including Alabama, Arkansas,
Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana,
Missouri, North Carolina,
Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas,
have ah1ead1 started similar
initiatives. South Carolina and
MTliisisgippi also are on the verge

populations and impro\ e habitat

End the Year with a
Bang of Holiday
Hunting Traditions
There finally is a chill in the air
and a certain festiveness as most of
us try to take time off from work to
enjoy spending quality time with
family and friends and reflecting
on the passing year. Children will.
be out of school on winter break
soon, and as the holiday. season is
S upon us, so are several traditional
hunting opportunities.

coot season comes in state ide
.Dec. 10 and runs through Jan. 29.
The second phase of can\asback
season also opcns Dec. 10 but only
lasts three \%ieeks until Dec. 30. In
addition to the usual hunting
license and permit requirements,
duck hunters also must have a
Flonida \ waterfowl permit ($3) and
a federal duck stamp I $15).
The daily bag linut on ducks is
six, but you need to know your
ducks before you pull the trigger,
because there are different daily\
limits for each species. For
insurance. within that six-bid limit
there can only be one black duck,
one mottled duck. one fulvous

have only four scoters or mallards
(of which only two can be female)
in your bag. All other species of
ducks may be taken up to the six-
bird limit, except harlequin ducks.
Taking or attempting to take harle-
quins is illegal. The daily limit on
coots is 15, and there is a five-bird
limit on mergansers, only one of

When hunting waterfowl,
hunters may only use non-toxic
shotgun shells. In fact, it's illegal
for waterfowl hunters to possess
lead shot. Only steel, tin or tung-
sten-alloy are permissible.

Forsomething different, try
woodcock hunting. Woodcock sea-
son runs Dec. 17 -Jan. 15.
Woodcocks are excellent game
birds, because they hold well for

Liberty County 4-Hers bring home ribbons from the North Florida Fair

from the Liberty County
Extension Office
For the past two weeks the
Liberty County Extension staff
has been making preparations
with booths and youth for the
North Florida Fair. Each year
the Extension Office is respon-
sible for placing a booth in the
agriculture building featuring
Liberty County agriculture.
This year's booth featured the
Jerkins' aquaculture farm. The
Liberty County 4-H Teen Club
placed a booth entitled "Hunt-
in' and Fishin' for New Ideas";
displaying new projects they
have become involved in.
As in days gone by, you al-
ways carry your best to the fair.
Several weeks ago a talent con-
test was held to select the top
act to participate in the North
Florida Fair. Victoria Marlowe

Last year, the Tigers made the
Class 1A state finals and lost in
the championship game. This
was their first season as a 2B

Blountstown's loss was a
stunning one for fans who, at the
very least, expected the team to
hold their own in Friday's game.
Trinity Catholic has maintained
a strong Number 1 ranking in
the state but the Blountstown
Tigers stayed behind them at
Number 2.
The first quarter was scoreless.
Trinity scored off a Blountstown
fumble in the second quarter, fol-
lowed by a second TD.
By halftime, Trinity was up.
Trinity propelled the score to
31-0 in a disheartening third quar-
ter for the Tigers. Trinity went
on to score again on a two-yard
run in the final quarter to end the
scoring at 43-0.
Blountstown incurred one
penalty after another throughout
the night until a frustrated Josh
Savell took off his helmet on the
field and was immediately ejected
from the game in the third quar-
ter. Two other players followed
suit; Ryan Baker was kicked out
for an altercation with a Trinity
player and Chance Attaway was
sent off the field for arguing with
"It all took place in about a
15-second interval," Johns said.
"I really was not aware of how
bad it had gotten until the third
flag came fl) ing. It was a regret-
table situation that shouldn't have
happened on our paLrt.
.Tiger Corey Silcox said the
situation "was something we
should have avoided" and noted
that the plaN ers in\ ol\ ed no\\ re-
gret their actions. "That was our
second loss in two years. Tempers
flared," he said. "It got so crazy
on the field that I just kind of
walked away."
The game came under some
heavy scrutiny on local internet
message boards, where many us-
ing screen names assigned blame
and had plenty of criticism to go
around for the Blountstown team.
Many Tiger fans blamed the of-
ficials and the high number of
penalties for costing their team
a chance at the state champion-
But Silcox, who logged in un-
der his own name and identified
himself as a member of the team,
addressed the Monday morning
quarterbacks online. "I don't
bu\ the idea that e got blasted
because of penalties. Sometime
you ha\e to swallow your pride
and take the loss."
He acknowledged that after
Trinity kept scoring. "some of our
players fell apart."
Silcox sutnmed it up by writ-
ing, "Trinity 'played at the high
level that they played at all year
and Blountstown didn't."
Friday's game A as the last of
the senior's high school career.

Despite the lopsided score,
he said his team did play well
early in the game. "Other than a
couple of mistakes, we felt like
statistically we outplayed them
for almost the entire first half,"
he said.
"They picked up a fumble and
ran in a TD in the second quarter.
They'd only completed one pass
and had only two first downs until
the last drive of the first half and
ended up scoring 14-0 by the

half," he said.
Johns said the Tigers had a
third down deep in their territory
and had completed a 60-yard pass
when "a very questionable call"
for offensive pass interference
was made in the third quarter.
That forced the Tigers to punt.
Trinity got the ball and ran for a
touchdown to make it 24-0. At
that point, "One of their kids put
his hand up in the face mask of
one of my players. Then one of

my kids gets thrown out of the
game for unsportsman-like con-
duct," he said. "Things just kind
of went downhill after that."
He said there were a couple of
more plays they could have made,
but "their players were fresh and
we weren't," noting that almost
all of his team had to play both
offense and defense.
Johns said Tuesday that he has
not spoken with his team since
Friday's game but plans to ad-

dress them as a group Wednesday.
"They were hurt enough that they
didn't need me to pour salt in their
wounds Friday night. I decided
to save the real talk for later when
we've got things in perspective a
little bit," he said.
Despite his disappointment at
losing a second chance at a state
championship, "I want to make it
clear that this football team is 30-
3 in the last 33 games. They've
accomplished things that have
never been accomplished here
before," he said.
Now, he's setting his sights
on the next step. "We've got a
wonderful group of senior-. \\ e'\e
got to have a banquet for and ,i"y
goodbye to. They're the ones
responsible for us %' inning all
those football games "
After that, he said, "It's time to
get back to the \ eight room and
get started on next year."
Trinity Catholic and Pahokee
will play for the title in the Class
2B State Championship game
slated for Saturday, Dec. 3 at FIU
CommuniOt St:iJdim in Miami.

Protecting 'the food of the gods'

by Sandy Miller Hays,
Agricultural Research Service
I don't know how "mail call"
looks at your house these days,
but at our house, as the holidays
approach, the daily avalanche
of mail-order catalogues is be-
ginning to reach world-record-
setting proportions.
Most of those catalogues get
tossed, but there are some that
I like to linger over...especially
the ones from a well-known
maker of fine chocolates. No,
I probably don't need the extra
calories, but if Santa were to
drop one of those pretty gold
boxes under the tree for me, I
wouldn't hold a grudge!
If you, like me, are crazy for
chocolate, we can consider our-
selves in good company. The
Aztecs of Mexico believed that
chocolate was the "food of the
gods," and that the cacao tree'
itself-source of the seeds that
are the chief ingredient for co-
coa and chocolate-was a gift
from the wise god Tula Quet-
Tula's gift turned out to be a
valuable one, as cacao has be-
come an important cash crop in
the tropical regions of Central
and South America, Asia and
Africa, and an essential part
of the multibillion-dollar U.S.
chocolate industry.
But in recent years, all has
not been sweet in the world of
chocolate. Starting in the 1990s,
Brazil's main cacao production
area in the state of Bahia was
devastated by a fungal disease
called Crinipellis perniciosa
(fortunately, it has another,
much simpler name: "witches'
broom"). In the course of just
12 years, Brazil went from be-
ing the world's third-largest ex-
porter of cocoa beans to being a
net importer of the beans.
And worse was to come:
Witches' broom was joined by
another destroyer of cacao, a


disease called "frosty pod rot."
Caused by the fungus Monili-
ophthora roreri, this disease
has forced the abandonment of
many cacao farms in Ecuador,
Colombia and Costa Rica.
In the late 1990s, scientists
with the Agricultural Research
Service joined in the fight to
save the world's cacao supply.
Based on methods developed
by the ARS scientists, biocon-
trol products are now available
to combat several pathogens of
cacao. And in 2002, ARS sci-
entists released nine new, high-
yielding lines of cacao beans
(Theobroma cacao) that hope-
fully will offset some disease
losses by producing more beans
than the earlier cacao varieties.
In the latest breakthrough,
an ARS scientist in Maryland
has shown what others have
long suspected-that the fungi
behind the dreaded witches'
broom and frosty pod rot are
actually closely related. The
ARS scientist used DNA anal-
ysis to make the "family con-
nection," with assistance from
a colleague in Costa Rica. The
scientists say both are actually
members of the scientific or-
der Agaricales, which includes
mushroom-forming fungi.
The discovery of this "family

relationship" is important be-
cause it means that biological
control methods used to battle
witches' broom have a higher
chance of succeeding against
frosty pod as well...and that
could go along way to\\ ard en-
suring we have a steady supply
of chocolate!.
Now for the really good
news: Is -chocolate good for
you? The answer, I'm oh-so-
happy to report, is "yes"--but
remember, "all things in mod-
Studies have shown that
chocolate contains a variety of
compounds that may contribute
to cardiovascular health. Choc-
olate contains the B vitamins
riboflavin and niacin; several
micronutrients, including iron,
potassium and zinc; and it's
especially rich in magnesium,
copper and manganese.
But you need to be aware
that all chocolates are not cre-
ated equal. ARS scientists have
studied the total antioxidant
capacity (TAC) in six choco-
late and cocoa products: natu-
ral unsweetened cocoa powder,
Dutch processed (alkalinized)
cocoa powder, unsweetened
baking chocolate, semi-sweet
chocolate baking chips, dark
chocolates and milk choco-
late. Antioxidants are thought
to be effective in helping pre-
vent cancer, heart disease and
The results: Natural tocoa
contains the highest levels of
an antioxidant called procy-
anidin. The baking chocolates
contained fewer procyanidins,
because they contained more
fat (50-60 percent) than natural
cocoa. Alkalinization, used to
reduce the acidity of cocoa in
products such as Dutch choco-
lates, also reduces the procyan-
idin content. And milk choco-
lates-which contain the least
amount of cocoa solids-had
the lowest TAC and procyani-
din levels.
So, now you're well armed

History prof. debunks holiday myths, traditions

'Tis the season of holiday tra-
dition,, although a professor at
Roanoke College in Salem, VA,
would argue that many of them
are actually n\ th,.
According to Dr. Mark Miller,
professor of history at Roanoke,
who teaches U.S. history from
the colonial and Civil War peri-
ods, Thalgik' ingli has few his-
torical ties to the original 17th
century celebration, and many of
our customary Christmas images
originated in Hollywood hold
little historical significance. He
claims that many of today's holi-
day traditions are actually myths
that have been developed in the
last 60-70 years.
Take the first Thanksgiving
celebration in Plymouth, Mass.,
back in 1621 for instance. It has
been depicted as a friendly gath-
ering between the Pilgrims and
the Indians. But Miller reports
that the Pilgrims could not pos-
sibly have been attendants of the
earliest Thanksgiving feast be-
cause the term "Pilgrim" was not
even invented until the 1830s.
"During the pre-Civil War pe-
riod, Northerners were.in search
of a counterpart image to that of
the Southern settlers of James-
town," says Miller. "This led to
the name 'Pilgrims,' which de-
scribed the first group of Eng-
lishmen to live in the North."
Contrary to popular belief,
Miller tells that the original
guests of the 1621 feast were,-
not "Pilgrims," but more ap-
propriately called "Saints." The
relationship between the Saints
and the Indians has also been
distorted through the years. The
European settlers were really

quite frightened of the wild new
world, including its native inhab-
"The Europeans thought the
Native Americans were a lost
Israeli tribe that had been blown
off course and landed in Ameri-
ca," says Miller. "They thought
the tribe arrived as civilized men
and women, but became savages
after living in the wilderness. For
fear of contact with the savages,
laws were enacted which for-
bade European settlers to touch
or look at the Indians."
The Civil War also played a
predominant role in the timing
of the celebration, according to
Miller. The original harvest was
likely held in late summer to ear-
ly fall, following the final rush
of fieldwork. However, in 1864,
Abraham Lincoln, then president
of the North, called for a day of
thanksgiving in November. It
wasn't until the 20th century that
Thanksgiving was. celebrated in
Southern states. .
Miller reports that turkey, corn
and cranberries were most likely
served on the original plates of
the celebration, however .ad-
vances in agricultural technology
have added many more items to
the."traditional" menu.
He also tells that Christmas
present and past offer many con-
flicting images as well. Christmas
100 years ago was very simple
compared to today's extrava-
gant celebrations. Historically,
Christmas was a holy day cel-
ebrating the birth of Christ, and
the Puritans of the 17th century
honored the tradition in a quiet,
private manner.
"They were very offended by
the public revelry and merriment
associated with the religious day,
and so such merry-making par-

ties were outlawed," he says.
Though public celebrations
of Christmas resurfaced in the
1850s, Miller says that many Pu-
ritan ideals still prevailed. Work
and school holidays were typi-
cally one day, and pine boughs or
wreaths were placed in the home,
not entire trees.
"Putting an entire tree in the
house would have been consid-
ered crazy," he says.. "And to
light the tree with candles would
have been absurd. The pine cut-
tings were probably adorned with
homemade decorations, such as
cookies, candy or popcorn."
The legendary Santa Claus of
the 19th century placed gifts of
oranges, wooden toys and mar-
bles into children's' stockings.
Miller says "Citrus fruit was a
big deal during this time period;
it was a product of the laborious
Secular music of the Christ-
mas holiday also did not -ap-

Beginning in the 20th century.
the emergence of the glamorous
Hollywood culture had a major
impact on the holiday festivities,
according to Miller: Films such as
"It's a Wonderful Life" and lir-
acle on 34th Street" redefined the
spirit of the season and have be-
come classics of the American
culture. Holiday cartoons of the
1960s, like "Charlie Bro\ n's
Christmas," "The Grinch vlho
Stole Christmas" and "Frosty the
Snowman" are the most recent
additions to the Hollywood-pro-
duced image of Christmas.
"Hollywood invented much of
what are now considered Christ-
mas traditions," he says.

under the.pet law will begin
airing on television throughout
Florida in mid-December as
holiday shoppers contemplate
the purchase of a pet for
themselves or a family member.
It can be viewed at www.florida-
"Purchasing a pet during the
holidays can be a rewarding
experience and bring great
joy to a child and other family
members," Bronson said. "But
you want to make sure that
you're doing business with a
reputable dealer who knows and
follows the law to avoid what
sometimes can deteriorate into
an unfortunate situation."
Toward that end, inspectors
are visiting numerous pet stores
and dealers between now and
January 1 to make sure that a
store or dealer is complying with
Florida Statute 828.29, a law
that imposes certain obligations
on sellers and .offers recourse
to consumers in the event that
problems arise.
Under the law, dogs and cats
must be at least eight weeks of
age when sold or offered for
sale, and each animal must be
accompanied by a Florida health
certificate signed by a licensed
the past 30 days documenting
required vaccinations, tests
and treatments for internal or
external parasites:
In addition, the law requires a
dealer to provide apurchaser with
information on the buyer's rights
under the law, which includes
the right to return exchange

or receive reimbursement for
veterinary expenses if an animal
is deemed unfit by a licensed
veterinarian within 14 days. of
Aside from making sure that a
dealer is complying with the law,
consumers should also consider
suitability when purchasing
an animal, Bronson said. For
example, some breeds of dogs
may be less appropriate if there
are infants or young children in
a home. Likewise, consumers
may want to think twice before
purchasing a large animal if they
live in a small dwelling.
Bronson offered the following
tips to consumers who are
considering or _planning to
purchase a dog or cat:
*Don't buy on impulse.
Research the size and breed of
the animal for suitability with
your lifestyle and circumstance.
*Examine the health certificate
that is required to be presented
upon sale for completeness and
compliance with the law.
.If there is a problem with
your pet after purchase, contact
the seller immediately.
The department's Division
of Animal -Industry. assists
consumers, veterinarians and pet
dealers in educating them about
the pet law and making sure that
its provisions are followed.
For additional information or
to file a complaint, consumers
can call 1-800-HELPFLA (1-
800-435-7352) or (850) 410-
During the last two years,
consumers who have filed
complaints or sought assistance
from Bronson's office for
alleged violations of the law
have received restitution totaling
about $55,000.

Bronson launches education and training

program for auto repair shop employees

Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has launched a program
to assist employees of auto repair
shops with additional training in
an effort to enhance customer
service at the state's more than
20,000 repair shops.
The Motor Vehicle Repair-Ed-
ucation Assistance Program will
provide scholarships for mechan-
ics to attend technical training
or other courses related to auto
repair. Letters informing repair
shop owners about the program
have been sent to every registered
auto repair shop in Florida.
"Consumers will greatly ben-
efit for a more educated work
force in the repair industry,"
Bronson said. "Automobiles be-
come more technologically ad-
vanced every year and consum-
ers rely on the expertise of repair
technicians to keep this invest-
ment in good working order."
The law creating the assistance
prpgr ami as passed'ib 1993 buL
there was no available funding

until the 2005 legislative session.
"As part of Bronson's legislative
budget request in 2005, lawmak-
ers appropriated $100,000 to be
used on a first-come-first-served
basis. The funds can only be
used to pay the cost of techni-
cal training and cannot be used
to cover travel costs or other ex-
penses. The funding comes from
registration fees paid by the mo-
tor vehicle repair industry.
Motor vehicle repair shops
must apply to the Department to
be eligible for the program. Edu-
cational assistance funding is
limited to $1,000 per registered
location per year, or a maximum
of $3,000 to a shop owner with
multiple locations. Shops must
also provide the Department
with proof that training has been
completed. The training facility
must also meet the requirements
spelled out in the law.

____ Mulchesfor the landscape

When pine needles start
raining down, many garden-
ers' thoughts turn to mulch. A
mulch is any material applied
to the soil surface for protec-
tion or improvement of the area
covered. But when it comes to
mulching flower beds and un-
der shrubs, pine products aren't
the only choices.
Proper mulching has many
beneficial effects on the soil and
plants. Mulches prevent loss of
water from the. soil by evapo-
ration. Mulching will prevent
crusting of the soil surface, thus
improving absorption and per-
colation of water into the soil
and at the same time, reducing
erosion. Mulch acts as an insu-
lator, keeping the soil cool un-
der intense sunlight and warm
during cold spells. Mulches
can also suppress weeds when
the mulch material itself is

by Theresa Friday,
Extension Horticultural
Agent, Santa Rosa County

weed-free and is applied deeply
enough to prevent weed seed
Mulch material is usually
categorized as either organic or
inorganic. Organic mulches in-
clude bark, wood chips, leaves,

other similar natural material.
Organic mulch has one very
important advantage over inor-
ganic mulch-it improves the
health of the soil. Because or-
ganic mulches decay over time
they add very important nutri-
ents to our soil.
Inorganic mulches include
such materials as gravel, mar-
ble chips, shells, pebbles and
stones. Though sometimes

used because they are perma-
nent and attractive, inorganic
mulches do have some disad-
vantages. Clean-up of leaves,
needles, and twigs can be dif-
ficult. They do not break down
so they provide no benefit to the
soil. And if limestone products
or shells are used, they can in-
crease the soil pH often to det-
rimental levels.
Which is the right mulch for
you? According to one survey,
gardeners want mulches to be
attractive, last a long time and
not attract insects. Currently,
about sixty percent of the mulch
sold for the home landscape in
Florida is cypress and twenty
percent is pine-bark mulch.
While cypress mulch is very
popular, it may not be your best
choice. Today, cypress trees are
harvested for two major prod-
ucts: saw timber and. landscape
mulch. Of the approximately
forty-two million cubic feet of
cypress harvested each year in
Florida, almost half is chipped
for landscape mulch. Originally
the cypress mulch industry be-
gan by using waste vwood pro-
duced from sawing operations.
However, with the expansion
of mulch-use in landscaping in
the last several years came an
increase in demand for cypress
mulch. This growing use of cy-
press for mulch has contributed
considerably to the harvesting
of trees from the wild depleting
our valuable wetlands.
One alternative to cypress
mulch is melaleuca mulch.
The use of melaleuca would
be wise, since'it is an inva-
sive, exotic tree invading more
than 500,000 acres of Florida's
wetlands. Commercial mela-
leuca mulch, which has been
composted for ninety days be-
fore bagging in order to kill
the seeds, is some of the most
environmentally-friendly, and
termite-resistant mulch on the
market. And while University
of Florida research indicates
that termites tend to be pres-
ent in mulched areas. more
frequently than in areas where
mulch is nonexistent, results
indicate that termites preferred
melaleuca less than some of the
other mulches.
There are however certain
practices you can adopt to
help deter termites when using
mulch. Do not place landscape
plantings too close to exterior
walls and leave a mulch-free
area around the building by
pulling the mulch at least one
foot away from walls.

National leadership and management development

organization taps Covenant Hospice for a new partnership

Studer Group, a national health-
care leadership and management
development group and Cov-
enant Hospice, headquartered in
Pensacola, announced an excit-
ing new partnership which will
include collaboration for multi-
ple services for health care orga-
nizations. The new services will
include training programs for
leaders involved with providing
end-of-life care (including pal-
liative, home health, long term
care and hospice care), special-
ized consultation services, and
an institute concentrating on
end-of-life issues. The two or-
ganizations will also harvest and
develop new tools and teaching
Dale O. Knee, Covenant Hos-
pice President and CEO, said the
new partnership will help Cove-
nant Hospice continue to realize
its vision statement to broaden
and fulfill life's journey for all
people. "This new partnership is

a wonderful opportunity to im-
prove care throughout the nation
and other countries for individu-
als and their loved ones facing
end-of-life issues and challeng-
es, while concurrently improv-
ing the leadership skills and tal-
ents of the Covenant staff by the
education and training they will
receive by Studer Group train-
ers," said Knee. Knee is also
excited about the opportunities
for increased job promotions and
career growth for the Covenant
staff. Covenant Hospice, a not-
for-profit organization,, serves
over 1,000 patients per da\ in 37
counties in the Tallahassee Big
Bend area, Northwest Florida
and South Alabama.
The Studer Group will be.
hosting a national conference
of healthcare leaders in the Pen-
sacola area at the end of the year,
at which Dale Knee will be pre-
senting a program on end-of-life
care. Then during 2006, the two
organizations will jointly spon-

sor the first of an ongoing series
of End-of-Life Institutes to bene-
fit healthcare leaders nationwide.
Both organizations are very ex-
cited about the official partner-
ship,, and are looking forward
to coaching and enhancing end-
of-life care around the country.
"Covenant Hospice makes a dif-
ference every day. This partner-
ship will now provide a way for
Covenant Hospice's caring con-
cepts to reach patients and fami-
lies across the United States,"
said Quint Studer, President and
CEO of the Studer Group.

for-profit, JCAHO-accredited,
charitable organization dedicat-
ed to providing comprehensive,
compassionate end-of-life care

sible, to provide dignified pallia-
tive care, to assist patients' loved

Q: Does while tea offer more
health benefits than green tea?
SA: White, green and black teas
SIall come from the same plant.
White tea is the least processed
form. Its leaves and buds are sim-
ply steamed and dried. It gets its
name because it's made from a
higher proportion of buds, which
are covered with fine silvery hairs
that turn white when dried. White
tea's flavor is slightly sweet, with-
out the grass-like tones that green
tea can have. Although green tea
is higher than black tea in poly-
phenol phytochemicals that pro-
vide antioxidant power, such as
epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG),
white tea is even higher. A few
studies suggest that white tea is
even better than green tea at pre-
venting damage to DNA in cells
that could lead to cancer. How-
ever, since white tea is much less
commonly consumed than green
tea in Japan or black tea in the
U.S. and Europe, it has attracted
much less research. We don't
know for certain whether it really
benefits health more than green-
tea. Because white tea is substan-
tially more expensive than other
teas, it may not seem worth the
cost to some people. But it is pos-
sible that you could drink fewer
cups of white tea compared to
green tea to get the same amount
of protective phytochemicals.
Q: Are "sports" and "ener-
gy" bars and.drinks good to eat
before and after exercise?
A:Youhave tolook at hat'sin
the particular product you're con-
sidering to know if it might help
you. Experts suggest that some of
these products are misnamed. If a
product contains only protein, or
mostly protein, without carbohy-
drates, studies show that it would
stimulate insulin secretion with-
out increasing your blood sugar.
The result would be low blood
sugar, which could decrease your
performance and energy. Before
exercise, you should look for a
product high in carbohydrates.
Although studies are not com-
pletely consistent, it appears that
a person's energy is best restored
and muscles are most success-
fully built by consuming some
protein and carbohydrates within
the first hour or so after exercise.
The right bar or special beverage
can provide this nutrient combi-
nation in a convenient, portable
form. However, these products
are substantially more expensive
than regular food. They also have
not been shown to produce better
results than such foods as a pea-
nut butter sandwich or milk and
a banana.
Q: If I take time off from my
usual exercise routine, how long
will it be before I lose all the
benefits I gained?
A: When it comes to fitness,
the saying "use it or lose it" is
true. How quickly your condi-
-tion deteriorates, however, de-
: pends:on how fit you are to start
with. The more fit you are and
the longer you've been exercis-
ing, the more .slowly you will;
Slose aerobic ability and strength.
If you were in good shape, you

months you will uilH be ahead
of where you were when you
started exercising. People, who
are new to exercise and stop,
however, can end up. back where

they were when they started af-
ter only a few weeks or months:
If you can't or don't want to
continue your usual physical ac-
tivity, studies show that if you

cut down the amount of time
or frequency that you exercise
instead of stopping completely,
you can hold your ground. If
you're bored with the activities

-that you've been-doing. or if a
change in season presents you
from doing them. try a differ-
ent exercise regimen. A different
activity may renew your enthu-
siasm for exercise. Doing sev-
eral types of activities, or cross
training, should also benefit you
more than sticking with only one-
form of exercise. .
