Abstract:
The Live Oak Suwannee Democrat is one of the oldest continuously published weeklies in the State of Florida. It began in 1884 in Live Oak, which at the turn of the century was the fifth largest city in Florida, preceded only by Jacksonville, Pensacola, Tampa, and Key West. The Suwannee Democrat enjoyed a corresponding reputation as a journalistic leader in the state. As its name suggests, the newspaper in its early days was affiliated with the Democratic Party. Its first editor hid under an assumed name when he was suspected of murder. A deathbed confession by the actual perpetrator allowed him to resume his true identity: F.R. McCormack, about whom, however, little else is known. From 1906 through 1907, the Suwannee Democrat was supplemented by the Live Oak Daily Democrat, edited by Charles W. Irwin. The rural character of early 20th-century Suwannee County, well known for its grist and lumber mills and poultry farms, is visible in the pages of the Suwannee Democrat. Indeed, over the years the newspaper has won numerous awards from the Florida Press Association for the quality of its agricultural reporting. Fires have taken their toll on the Suwannee Democrat. In 1906, a disgruntled printer left Live Oak by railroad on the night that the newspaper’s offices were burned to the ground. In October 1995, a fire destroyed a historic block of Live Oak’s downtown, and the newspaper’s office was one of the casualties. Lost in the fire were the last known issues of the Suwannee Democrat dating from 1897 through 1900.

County braces for new



homestead exemption


Budget shortfall

could be 'devastating,'

says tax assessor

By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com
The Suwannee County Commission is
bracing itself for the repercussions of a


new homestead exemption % which maN
slice its budget considerably next year.
The exemption, part of a property tax
package that will come before voters in
January, would create a super exemption
for homesteads.
In a budget workshop Thursday com-
missioners provisionally cut more than
$700,000 in requested funding, a mea-
sure they say will prepare for next year's

plight of the poor and the homeless. At left is Rebecca Salter, who has accompanied Denmark since Talla-
hassee. - Photo: Robert Bridges


T he bare facts of
her story nearly .
border on the
bizarre. A success-
ful businesswoman
in Dayton, Ohio takes ill and
doctors can't find the cause.
Bedridden for nearly a month,
she suffers a horrific nightmare
-- one so real the terror remained
when she awoke -- in which she
saw hell, and the place reserved


for her in it. When she awakens,
she's well -- not a touch of sick-
ness. Twenty-four hours later she
gives up everything she owns
and takes off across America on
a crusade to help the homeless.
On foot. Through four feet of
snow.
But those are just the bare
facts. You have to meet Kim
Denmark to begin to understand
what she's about -- who she is,
and why she's become homeless
herself to raise awareness of the
plight of the poorest among us.

She's on a mission, as they.say.
Hearing her talk about it can give

made it into town, but didn't

with a heat index nearing 110.
Heat exhaustion struck and she

Drugs may trigger sun allergy reactions
A sun allergy, also referred to as photosensitivity, occurs when the
immune system reacts to sunlight, resulting in an itchy red rash. Areas
of the skin exposed to the sun, such as the neck, hands, arms, and legs,
may be affected. Polymorphous light eruption (PMLE) is the second
most common skin condition 'related to the sun, after sunburn. Another
type of sun allergy, photoallergic eruption, occurs when a chemical
applied to the skin combined with sun exposure triggers a skin reaction.
Ingredients in sunscreen, fragrances, antibiotic ointments, and
cosmetics may lead to this type of sun allergy. Certain types of
prescription medications also may trigger a photoallergic eruption,
including certain antibiotics, diuretics, and medications for mental
health conditions. Symptoms of PMLE typically develop within several
hours. Symptoms of photoallergic eruption may not appear until one or
two days.
Protecting the skin from sun exposure is an important, preventive
measure. It is important to be aware of medications that are likely to-
cause a photoallergic eruption. For mild symptoms of PMLE, cool
compresses and a nonprescription antihistamine, such as
diphenhydramine, may be useful in alleviating itchiness. A topical
steroid cream or a prescript ion-strength antihistamine may be
prescribed for more severe symptoms. 379242-F

Operation Landstuhl begins

phone card purchases


Submitted

The national commander of The American
Legion has authorized the immediate pur-
chase of $25,000 of telephone calling cards
to be given to U.S. troops recovering at
Landstuhl (Lond Stool) Regional Medical
Center in Germany.
The cards are the result of Operation Land-
stuhl, an initiative by National Commander
Paul A. Morin that was prompted by his re-
cent visit to the center.
"The staff at Landstuhl do an outstanding
job but the patients don't have all of the per-
sonal comfort items that they need," Morin
said. "Many of the troops could use some
civilian clothes, others might want DVDs,
CDs or magazines. We owe it to them. These
phone cards are just the start."
The hospital is a stopping point on the
journey home for many wounded service-
members, who are injured in Iraq and
Afghanistan: During peak fighting periods,
the hospital often accepts more than 900 new


patients per month.
Morin, American Legion Auxiliaryi Presi-
dent JoAnn Cronin and Sons of The Ameri-
can Legion Commander Earl Ruttkofsky
have set a goal for The American Legion
family to raise $50,000 for comfort items to
be purchased and sent to the troops.
"Operation Landstuhl is only one month
old and we are already on our way to achiev-
ing our goal," Morin said. "The generosity of
The American Legion has been overwhelm-
ing. I am confident that we will meet our
goal by the close of our 89th National Con-
vention on Aug. 30."
Departments of The American Legion will
be able to present checks on the floor of The
American Legion Convention in Reno. There
will also be a donation booth for individuals
to contribute in the Exhibit Hall of the Na-
tional Convention. Credit card donations are
also accepted online at www.legion.org and
checks can be mailed to Operation Land-
stuhl, c/o The American Legion, P.O. Box
1055, Indianapolis, IN 46206-1055.

Q *What's the advantage to
* having laminate flooring?

A Because it's designed with a i
* tough and durable wear layer,
* laminate flooring is much
stronger than most installed solid
hardwood flooring, carpets and vinyls,
it's more resistant to scratches than
softer surfaces (solid hardwood floors
for eg.) and is one of the best choices
for households with heavy foot traffic,
kids, or pets. But, best of all, laminates
will look like new for years.

From our readers

Dear Editor:
The Florida Department of Transporta-
tion, District Two is proud to unite with
area law enforcement agencies to focus at-
tention on the issue of red light running'.
Each year nearly one third of all intersec-
tion crashes are caused by drivers who run
red lights.
Running a red light is no joke. Many peo-
ple are killed or badly injured each year be-
cause someone cruised through a red light.
You may be in a hurry, you may think that
the light doesn't stay green long enough.
Whatever your excuse, it is no reason to en-
danger the lives of other motorists, passen-
gers, pedestrians, or bicyclists who may be
in that intersection. There is just no excuse
for running a red light.
Andrea Atran;
Florida Department of Transportation,
Traffic Safety Program Manager

Dear Editor:
I have a question for some drivers in
Suwannee County.
* Why don't you stop at stop signs? Have .
you not taken a road sign test to get your
driver's license? When other vehicles are
traveling on a main highway, why do you
pull out in front of us? Do you have a death
wish? If you don't care about your own life,
don't put mine in danger.
Law enforcement has deaf ears regarding
this issue. We have called, called, called and
called. The problem still persists. Promises
made, not kept. We have no enforcement of
this law. Why? If the Sheriffs Office doesn't
enforce the law, what can citizens do? Sit
idly by and do nothing?
My husband and I tried to get a Citizens
Observer Patrol (C.O.P.), a mounted unit,
going but that didn't fly either. Citizens are
being killed all over this county.
Suwannee Democrat please research this
life and death issue. Look at the statistics.
There have been many needless fatalities.
This is not acceptable, that even one person
has been killed for this reason. Guilty dri-
vers and some in law enforcement are suf-
fering from apathy. Apathy-without emo-
tion, indifference.
Churches get involved, speak to your con-
gregations. The devil is behind the wheel,
killing innocent people. Someone, please
step up and end these needless deaths, Sher-
iff Cameron, are you listening, law enforce-
ment to compel observance of a law. My
husband and I are at a loss as to what's hap-
pening regarding this issue. It won't go
away on its own.
Stop signs are always octagonal (eight-
sided). A stop sign means you must bring
your vehicle to a complete halt at the
marked stop sign.
Sincerely,
Richard and Brenda Benoit


Environmentalists, with the
help of politicians and other
government officials, have an
agenda that has cost thousands
of American lives.
In the wake of Hurricane Bet-
sy, which struck New Orleans in
1965, the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers proposed building
flood gates on Lake Pontchar-

train, like those in the Nether-
lands that protect cities from
North Sea storms. In 1977, the gates were about to be
built, but the Environmental Defense Fund and Save Our
Wetlands sought a court injunction to block the project.
According to John Berlau's recent book, "Eco-Freaks:
Environmentalism is Hazardous to Your Health," U.S. At-
torney Gerald Gallinghouse told the court that not build-
ing the gates could kill thousands of New Orleanians.
Judge Charles Schwartz issued the injunction despite the
evidence refuting claims of environmental damage.
We're told that DDT is harmful to humans and animals.
Berlau, a research fellow at the Washington, D.C-based
Competitive Enterprise Institute, says, "Not a single study
linking DDT exposure to human toxicity has ever been
replicated." In one long-term study, volunteers ate 32
ounces of DDT for a year and a half, and 16 years later,
they suffered no increased risk of adverse health effects.
Despite evidence that, properly used, DDT is neither
harmful to humans nor animals, environmental extremists
fight for a continued ban. This has led to millions of ill-
nesses and deaths from malaria, especially in Africa. Af-
ter WWII, DDT saved millions upon millions of lives in
India, Southeast Asia and South America. In some cases,
malaria deaths fell to near zero. With bans on-DDT,
malaria deaths and illnesses have skyrocketed.
Environmental extremists see DDT in a different light.
Alexander King, co-founder of the Club of Rome, said,
"In Guyana, within almost two years, it had almost elimi-
nated malaria, but at the same time, the birth rate had
doubled. So my chief quarrel with DDT in hindsight is
that it greatly added to the population problem." Jeff
Hoffman, environmental, attorney, wrote on grist.org, ..
"Malaria was actually a natural population control, and
DDT has caused a massive population explosion in some
places where it has eradicated malaria. More fundamen-
tally, why should humans get priority over other forms of


life? ... I don't see any respect
for mosquitos in these posts."
Berlau's book cites many other.
examples of contempt for hu-
man life by environmentalists
and how they've made politi-
cians their useful idiots.
In 2001, thousands of Ameri-
cans perished in the terrorist at-
tack on the World Trade Center.


In the early 1970s, when the
World Trade Center complex
was built, the asbestos scare had just begun. The builders
planned to use AsbestoSpray, a flame retardant that ad-:
hered to steel. The New York Port of Authority caved in
to the environmentalists' asbestos scare and denied its
use. An inferior substitute was used as fireproofing.
After the attack, the National Institute of Standards and
Technology (NIST) confirmed other experts' concerns
about asbestos substitutes, concluding, "Even with the
airplane impact and jet-fuel-ignited multi-floor fires,
which were not normal building fires, the building would
likely not have collapsed had it not been for the fire-
proofing."
Through restrictions on asbestos use, our riaval vessels
are more vulnerable to our enemies, a disaster waiting in
the wings. The Columbia spaceship disaster was a result
of the EPA's demand that NASA not use freon in its ther-
mal insulating foam.
Congress mandates auto fuel mileage standards -- Cor-
porate Average Fuel Economy, or CAFE, standards -- rer
sulting in lighter, less crashworthy cars. In 2002, the Na-
tional Academy of Sciences calculated that CAFE stan-'
dards caused 2,000 additional traffic deaths each year. In
1999, a USA Today analysis of government and Insur-
ance Institute data found that since the 1970s CAFE stan-
dards went into effect, 46,000 people died in crashes ;:
which they would have likely survived had they been rid-
ing in heavier cars.
None of this is news to politicians. It's just that environ-
mental extremists have the ears of politicians, and potent
tial victims don't.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: What is a dental impression?
A: Usually at the beginning of a relationship
with a dentist, the dentist may want to make
a model of your dental structure. While such
a model is useful in general treatment, it is
essential in the case of a patient undergoing
any extensive restorative or orthodontic
treatment.
Customarily, the dentist will make a plaster
model cast from an impression of your teeth
and jaws. The dentist will create the
impression by pressing a curved impression
tray filled with a special paste over the teeth
of one jaw. Within minutes, the paste will
begin to set to a firm but rubbery
consistency and the dentist will remove the
tray. The dentist will then repeat the
procedure on the other jaw.
Those impressions will go to a dental lab
where the plaster models of your teeth and
jaws will be cast. They'll then be mounted on
what's called an articulator so the jaws open
and close. The models form a baseline for
reference and let the dentist, among other
things, show you areas of concern. Ask your
dentist for more information about models
and impressions.

Great Outdoors aren't so great when fire ants head inside


Submitted

If you think crossing the
threshold of your home will
keep a distance between you
and fire ants-think again. Fire
ants are well-known for the
havoc they wreak on the great
outdoors, but these little pests
can find their way inside if
they aren't controlled out in
the yard. Entire colonies can
head inside and set up camp
inside cracks in the wall, in


the rafters, or even behind
large appliances throughout a
home.
"They come inside for food
and warmth," says Dr.
Charles Barr, fire ant expert
and principal of Barr Re-
search and Consulting in
Bryan, Texas. "They also are
looking for water."
The fire ants venture in-
doors for these reasons during
different seasons. During the
driest parts of the year, they


often are in search of water;
during the coldest, they look
for warmth.
One of the biggest causes
of fire ants indoors is poor
control of fire ants outdoors,
says Barr. If you don't take
care of the pests while they
are outside, chances are they
will find their way into a
home and onto the homeown-
er's last nerve. A danger for
everyone in the house, espe-
cially unsuspecting children

and pets, fire ants must be
treated. Targeting outdoor
mounds can be a solution.
"Once they get indoors it
can be tricky to treat them,"
said Barr. "But the Over 'n
Out� mound treatment will
cut off foragers outside within
24 hours."
If the fire ants do find their
way inside, treating them
with an over-the-counter bug
spray or bait station is the
safest option. This treatment,


however, gets rid of foragers
but not the source of the prob-
lem, which is the colony, says
Barr. A contact insecticide
also can be used for trails of
ants, but again, this will not
affect the colony, which hous-
es the queen. In order for the
colony to be destroyed, the
queen must be eliminated.
There are a few precautions
that can be taken to help keep
the fire ants out of a home:
* Be sure that all food is in

sealed containers and dirty

* Vacuum and clean on a
regular basis to be sure no
food residue is left on the
counters or floor
* Double check that all the
doors and windows are sealed
properly
* Caulk any cracks or holes
around the foundation
* Keep trash cans sealed
and dirty clothes off the floor
Keep in mind that whatever
you do to prevent or treat fire
ants inside will not take care
of the problem entirely.
Working from the outside
in is the only effective
method.
Hot Topic: Keep an eye out
for fire ants during outdoor
summer activities
From picnics to backyard
baseball games, summertime
draws people outdoors. But
spending time outside also
can be difficult in areas where
fire ants are abundant.
"During the most severe
heat of the summer, anywhere
around water sources will be
particularly active with fire
ants," says Barr. "I've even
seen ants floating a few feet
out into a lake."
* Fire ants also tend to build
their mounds at the base of
anything, especially trees,
said Barr.
Venturing outdoors during
nice weather can be enjoy-
able, just keep a few things in
mind:
* Keep a look out for fire
ant mounds in areas for pic-
nics, games, or lounging in
the grass
* Don't lean up against a
tree, or let children crimb
trees, .as fire ant mounds are
often at the base of trees
* If picnicking, keep food in
closed containers
If you plan to take full ad-
vantage of your backyard this
summer, the Over 'n Out
Two-Step Method can be
helpful: The mound treatment
is fast-acting and will get rid
of foragers over night, and
mounds will be taken care of
in three days, says Barr; fol-
lowing a mound treatment
with a broadcast treatment is a
surefire way to eliminate fire
ants. He suggested that any-
one going camping or spend-
ing a few days in one location
scatter Over 'n Out around
their area to control and pre-
vent fire ants.
Another good trick to avoid
fire ant stings is to dust til-
cum powder on the legs of a
cot or picnic table. The pow-
der deters fire ants from the
area, said Barr.
Take advantage of the
weather and enjoy summer
activities outside, but keep in
mind the potential danger of
fire ants and protect yourself
and your family.
* Bundle up, it's summer!
* Fire ants create need for
toasty attire
When summer rolls around,
the last thing most people are
thinking about is the amount
of clothes they put on. With
the season comes heat, and
less is always more when it
comes to summer attire. But
the threat of fire ant stings
might have some people
changing their minds. Flip
flops and shorts won't offer
any protection. In fact, wear-
ing these items increase your
likelihood of getting stung.
"As soon as you start sitting
on the ground, having ex-
posed skin in contact with the
ground or grass blades, that's
where problems generally oc-
cur," said Barr.

School in Gaffney, S.C. even

uncertainties. Commission-
ers voted against six new
. positions requested by
,.Suwannee County Fire/Res-
cue and several other re-
-,quested positions. They also
* voted to hold off on several
capital outlay projects, in-
cluding updates for two ex-
isting fire stations and the
creation of a station in
,Dowling Park.
Commissioners also de-
nied extra funds requested
,-.from outside agencies, such
as Suwannee County Animal
.Control, Vivid Visions and
Comprehensive Community
Services.
County Commissioner Bil-
ly Maxwell said the board
would rather not approve the
requested positions and then
.,.lay workers off in January.
"These are reasons we
don't feel it is safe to oblig-
ate every dime we've got,"
Commissioner Ivie Fowler
said.
, Fowler noted the commis-
,sion did grant operational
funding to outside agencies
historically funded by the
.,county. They just didn't grant
them their "wish lists" to
,,fund additional projects.
Local leaders have been
dreading the implications of
the new homestead exemp-
,tion, saying the exemption
.will likely cut programs and
services, such as fire/rescue
and parks and recreations.
, With.the new super ex-
emption homeowners would
,,get a 75 percent exemption
for homes up to $200,000
and 15 percent of the next
,-$300,000. However, the su-
.per exemption comes with
no assessment cap on prop-
erty. The current $25,000
homestead exemption and
save our homes cap limits
assessmentt increases to 3
percent per year. A referen-
dum on Jan. 29, Primary
, day, willdetermine whether ,
the measure becomes law.
"We will survive this fis-
.,pal year without too much
negativee impact," said Com-
. mission Chairman Randy
Hatch. However, he predicts
-i"massive layoffs and severe
cuts in services" in store for
next year if voters pass the
,,new exemption.
r^. Hatch said officials have
been plugging in numbers to
determine just how much
; homesteaders will save with
*the new super exemption
, and for how long.
"After five years home-
o,.owners will break even. Af-
ter that they will pay more
than with their save our
Jomes cap," Hatch said.
r Suwannee County Proper-
,ty Appraiser Lamar Jenkins
'said that period of time
could come sooner.
"It looks real good to start
. with," Jenkins said. "After
three or four years they will
,be paying more."
., Hatch is worried about

, vices if the new exemlition

how hot it "feels." There's a
30 percent chance of rain to-

"Surprisingly enough, we
haven't had any reports of
heat-related illness," said
county Public Safety Direc-
tor Scott Racow.
But he and other officials


nonetheless advise caution.
Here are some tips on how
to survive the heat:

and half of the Suwannee
County Sheriffs Office.
"It will be devastating in
my opinion," Jenkins said. "It
will have a tremendous im-
pact (on Suwannee County)."
The new exemption will
cut into education also,
though lawmakers promised
to make up cuts elsewhere.
School board member
James Cooper said Monday
it's too early to tell how the
super exemption will impact
Suwannee County Schools.
"We worry about having


adequate supplies for stu-
dents and meeting the re-
quired teacher to student ra-
tio," Cooper said.
However, Maxwell said in
the event taxes from the new
super exemption bring in
more revenue than the current
plan, the county can reinstate
services as needed.
If the new super exemption
passes, voters may opt for the
new exemption, or choose to
retain their existing home-
stead exemption and save our
homes cap. Once the decision


is made, there is no turning
back.
Once the legislation is in
place, those without an exist-
ing homestead exemption
will only have the option of
choosing the super exemp-
tion.
Jenkins said before folks
cast their votes in January
they need to ask,"Will it help
me or will it hurt me?"
Maxwell said regardless of
the repercussions in store, it's
about giving voters what
they want.

A trip to Paula Deen's show


Submitted

Barbara Peaden and her
daughters, Debbie Warner Goli-
no, Sherri Warner Byrd and
April Warner Johnston recently
had the pleasure of being mem-
bets of the audience at Food
Network chef Paul Deen's tele-
vision show.
It all started with a
Mother/Daughter trip to Savan-
nah, Ga., on Mother's Day
weekend. The four had dinner at
the Lady & Sons (Deen's
restaurant) and lunch on Moth-
er's Day at Uncle Bubba's Oys-
ter House (Deen's brother's
restaurant).
Once the family returned
from the trip, Peaden's daugh-
ters decided to send an email to
Paula's Party requesting tickets
(with an explanation as to why
they wanted them).
"To our surprise and great de-
light, we received an email ask-
ing us to join in the fun and at-
tend a taping on Thursday, June
28," Peaden said. "It told us
what time to get there, how to
dress and that we were the only
ones that could use our tickets
(to the envy of family and
friends)."
The ladies arrived on the des-
ignated day and found out that a
lot is involved in the taping of a
one-hour show.
"We had an audience coach
that filled us in on important in-
formation (for our job as the au-
dience) and also kept us enter-
tained during the breaks," Peadd
en said.
They were part of a small au-
dience of about 50 or so people.
The theme of the show was
"Record Bashing," a departure
from Deen's usual cooking
show\. They were going for a
Guinness Book of World
Records.
Peaden said at one point,
Dee)i was taped in front of their
table. They also got to see her
brother Bubba, her husband
Michael and her two sons,
Jamie and Bobby.
"We are all big fans of Paula
and her family," said Peaden.
"Paula is just as lovable in
peiron as she is on camera, and
this had to be our most memo-
rable Mother/Daughters trip to
date," Byrd said. "We arrived on
the set at 7:30 a.m. and didn't
leave until sometime around
2:30 p.m., but it was worth
every minute of it! Two things I
know for sure - we didn't walk
away disappointed and we cer-
tainly didn't walk away hun-
gry."
"The highlight of our trip was
x watching our mom dance on
stage!'" Byrd said. "For those of
)ou vho know Barbara, I real-
ize it sounds like I'm making
this up. But let me assure you, it
really happened. Between seg-
ments, the producers had the au-
dience compete in little games.
When they called out the 'lady
in the blue shirt,' Mom turned
around, hoping and praying
against all odds that some other
poor sucker was wearing a blue
shirt. Nope! It was her they
wanted, and she was such a
good sport about it. She hopped
right up on stage and went to
dancing. She would've won,
too, except for the lady with the
big hips. Mom almost had her."
"We were pleased to see that
Paula is a warm and open per-
son," Golino said. "She
laughed, joked and spoke with
audience members. It was inter-
esting to see that the taping of a
one-hour show actually takes a
lot longer! As a mom in the
kitcjien, it is reaffirming to
know Paula mixes words up,
spills and splatters food in her
mxing bowls, tastes everything
she mixes together, and screams
when live crawfish climb out of


thi pot and onto the floor! She
has amazing energy and makes
yu. feel like you are a friend.
\e' had a wonderful visit and
. .illa al a.s cherish these mem-
ore,."
,"Having been raised to asso-
ci te good home-cooked food
wjth love, comfort and security,
w� couldn't have asked for a
better opportunity to spend
some good girl time together,"
Johnston said: "Paula Deen is a


shining example of a true
Southern woman, and it was so
good to see that she is exactly
the same in person as she is on
TV. Beyond getting to meet
Paula and eat some of her good
food, it was really neat to see all
that goes on behind the scenes
- I can honestly say that I will
never watch one of her shows in
the same way again. Overall,
this was an incredible experi-
ence, and I am so glad that I was
able to share it with my mom
and sisters!"
Peaden said it took a lot of
work to get them all there, with
the taping being on a Thursday
(work plans, baby sitting
arrangements, etc.).
"Everybody pitched in to help
us get there, including Papa
(Miles Peaden), who went to
Jacksonville to baby sit so that
we could go on Wednesday af-
ternoon, as we had to be there at
7:30 a.m., Thursday morning,"
Peaden said.
Peaden said the group they
were in actually won the prize
for answering the most trivia
questions about Deen and her
family.
"The big prize? ... why, a
stick of butter, what else?" she
said.
Peaden said they do not yet
know when the show will be
aired, but it will probably be late
September or October. Watch
for the advertisement of the
"Record Bashing" show on
Food Network.

slowed her down a little. A
couple days' rest and rehydra-
tion and Denmark picked up
Tuesday where she left off.
Still firm in her resolve, de-
termined to tell America
about those who've been left
behind.
"The homeless, the poor,
the working.poor have been
ignored," she says. "We do a
lot for Third World countries,
but we need to do more in
our own backyard."
Denmark's march is fund-
ed entirely by donations.
"People just come along and
help," she said Saturday.
They offer food, housing,
even free medical care. A
chiropractor in Valdosta re-
cently told her he'd pay for
any medical needs she in-
curred on her walk. "'Just
send me the bill,'" she says
he told her. And Ken's Bar-
B-Que fed Denmark and her
crew lunch when they
reached Madison.
Denmark is accompanied
by LaTonya DeWalt in a sup-
port vehicle, and has been ac-

companies on her walk since
Tallahassee by Rebecca
Salter. Salter recently donat-
ed a used RV so the women
will be sure of having a place
to sleep at night during their
journey.
The aim of all this exer-
tion? Media exposure, for one
thing. Denmark has raised
awareness of poverty in
America in the columns of
more newspapers, and on
more local TV stations, than
you can count.
But her final destination is
Washington, D.C. Along her
journey Denmark is collect-
ing signatures on a petition
she plans to present to Con-
gress once she's reached her
goal of walking through 49 of
the 50 states (Hawaii doesn't
look realistic at the moment).
She's already got more than
200,000 names. She plans to
collect a million.
But Denmark's collecting
something even more valu-
able than names: real-life sto-
ries of poverty and hopeless-
ness. "I want to hear about
people's struggles," she says.
"Why are your lights being


turned off, why are you
homeless with your kids?
What happened?" She plans
to tell these stories in Wash-
ington, in hopes of putting a
human face on those she
fears our nation may have
forgotten.
She has her own stories to
tell as well. Once in Mary-
land she went hungry for two
days. "I went to three church-
es," she says, "but they have
their rules too." In one, the
food cabinet was locked and
. nobody had they key. In an-
other, it was the wrong day
for food distribution. The
third church was simply out
of food.
"I sat on the curb and be-
gan to cry," Denmark said.
"Then I saw three guys carry-
ing bags of groceries. I went
to the church where they got
them, but they'd just given
away the last bag." But then
the church secretary saw her.
"She said 'you're that woman
on TV,'" Denmark recounted.
"Everyone stood up to look at
me. I said 'I'm hungry,' and
they all began to cry."
The church fed her and


gave her a check for $200.
"They said I was a lesson to
them," Denmark said. But
Denmark says she learned a
lesson as well. "I believe it
was the Lord's way of show-
ing me," she said. "You have
to feel hunger to know what
it's like."
Denmark grew up poor in
Dayton, the middle child of
11. She built a successful
temp agency and made some-
thing of herself. That's when
she began to take herself a
little too seriously.
"I was self-centered, arro-
gant, nasty to people," she
said. "I thought I was better
than the poor person. Because
I'd dug myself out of it, I
thought, if I can do it, they
can too. But that's not always
the case."
It was about that time she
got sick. Then came what she
describes as a spiritual awak-
ening. "It was a wake-up call
from God," she says.
When she awoke from her
dream of hell she knew what
she had to do. "I said I'm go-
ing to help poor people," she
said. "The very people I'd

stepped on." The next morn-
ing she got up and started to
walk.
Denmark gets discouraged
at times. "There isn't a week
that goes by I don't cry," she
says. And not everyone wants
to hear her message. "I've
been spit on, had people
throw their slushees at me,"
she says. "I've been heckled."
But most folks are encourag-
ing. "Within an hour someone

The Florida Department of
Health and the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration (FDA)
are warning Floridians not to
eat raw oysters harvested from
an area of the southern tip of
Hood Canal in Washington af-
ter an outbreak of illness
caused by Vibrio para-
haemolyticus bacteria. Records
indicate that the raw oysters
were distributed to Florida.
Raw oysters harvested from
"growing area 6" in Hood
Canal from July 3, 2007 and
after, have caused at least six
people to become ill in Cali-
fornia and Washington. No
cases linked to this outbreak
have been reported in Florida.
Symptoms of the illness,
called vibriosis, include watery
diarrhea, often with abdominal
cramping, nausea, vomiting,
fever, and chills. Usually these
symptoms occur within 24
hours of ingestion and last no
more than three days.
The FDA advises that con-
sumers can continue to enjoy
oysters in many cooked prepa-
rations by doing the following:
Af restaurants and other
foodservice establishments:
* Order oysters fully cooked.

* Purchase oysters with the
shells closed.

* Never allow raw seafood
to come into contact with
cooked food.
* Boil oysters until the shells
open. Once shells open, boil
for an additional three to five
minutes.
* Steam oysters by adding
oysters to water that is already
steaming and cook live oysters
until the shells open. Once i
open, steam for another four to
nine minutes.
* Use smaller pots to boil br
steam oysters. Using larger
pots, or cooking too many oIs-
ters at one time, may cause un-
even heat distribution, which
may cause the oysters in the;
middle to be under-cooked.
* Discard any oysters that io
not open during cooking.
Shucked Oysters:
* Never allow raw seafooc
to touch cooked. food.
* Boil or simmer shucked I
oysters for at least three mint

Florida fish kills common during summer but need reporting


Submitted
Reports of dead fish, ranging from a few individuals to thou-
sands, have prompted dozens of calls per week to the Florida Fish
',.nd Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) this summer.
*, Apprehensive,.callers to the FWC's Fish Kill Hotline worry
4 something must be terribly wrong; others just want to know the
causes.
i.. Fortunately, the mechanism at the root of most summertime fish
'i-i^s in freshwater lakes, man-made retention ponds and brackish
. estuaries is well understood by scientists. Ironically, a lack of sun-
. hine in the Sunshine State is where problems begin. The process

SMost of the oxygen fish breathe is created when waterborne mi-
,' croscopic plants use sunlight to produce and add dissolved oxygen
to the water, a process known as photosynthesis. But when over-
,cast skies persist for several days, there is often not enough sun-
light to power the oxygen-making process that supports fish life.
Heavy rain and wind from thunderstorms adds to the problem
b, stirring up bottom sediments that mix with good quality water

set for 2007


football season

Attention- Suvannee Bulldog football fans! The
S 2007 football season is upon us and to kick it off
! right, Suwannee Football Family and Suwannee
Quarterback Club invite you to a communit-\,ide
tailgate party with special guests, 1987 State Foot-
ball Team. You are invited to meet or reunite with
, coaches, players and cheerleaders. The party will
be from 5-7 p.m.. Friday,'Aug. 24 at the east \isi-

oxygen in the water to break down plant and animal matter, fur-
ther lowering oxygen levels.
"If these, conditions persist, and dissolved oxygen levels drop
for extended periods, fish suffocate," said Gary Byerley, FWC
freshwater fisheries biologist.
In short, during extended summer periods of overcast, rainy or
cloudy weather, the biological system uses dissolved oxygen
faster than it can produce it. Stormy weather aggravates the situa-
tion by creating and intensifying all the conditions that lower dis-
solved oxygen levels in the water.
The good news is that most water bodies don't suffer repeat per-
formances every year. In fact, most water bodies go years without
suffering a major fish kill. Fish populations usually replenish
themselves naturally from surviving fish. There are times howev-
er, when the severity of the kill requires restocking.
"In spite of summer fish kills, most Florida lakes are in rela-
tively healthy shape and fish populations remain stable. Angling
success generally is not affected over the long haul, even after
events that might appear serious to the untrained eye," said Byer-
ley.
Still, it's important for biologists like Byerley to keep track of
the location and extent of fish kills in natural lakes and estuaries


Dove Club permits

still available


Submitted

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) still has Dove
Club permits remaining for
some of its special-opportuni-
ty dove fields throughout the
state.
Permits are available for
Caravelle Ranch (Putnam
County), Schneider Farms
(Escambia County) and two
new public small-game hunt-
ing areas (PSGHAs)-Bass
Farm PSGHA (Alachua

Dove Club permits can be
purchased at county tax col-
lectors' offices, license ven-


dors,
www.wildlifelicense.com or.
by calling toll-free 888-
HUNT-FLORIDA (888-486-

Permits are sold on a first-
come, first-served basis and
allow one adult and one
youth (under age 16) to par-
ticipate in all scheduled hunts
for a designated dove field
(up to eight days). These Sat-
urday, half-day hunts cost
$150 and enable both the per-
mit holder and youth to take
a daily bag limit of birds
each.

Free hunter safety


courses offered


Submitted

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) is offering free
hunter safety courses.
"It's a good idea to sign up as
early as possible while there are
classes available. The closer we
get to hunting season, the
quicker the classes fill to capac-
ity," said Steve Robbins, re-
gional hunter safety coordina-
tor.
'"The FWC Hunter Safety
Course is available online and
on compact disc. Hunters can
take a majority of the class-
room instruction without leav-
ing home before taking part in a,
field day that includes live-fir-
ing instruction on a shooting
range to earn certification,"
Robbins said.
"During the field day, stu-
dents must complete a standard
written examination and are ex-
pected to demonstrate many
skills such as loading and un-
loading different types of
firearms, safely crossing fences
and other activities that all safe,
responsible hunters should be
able to complete," Robbins
said.
Families with young children


are encouraged to attend a tra-
ditional course. Student inter-
action with the instructors may'
-assist the child in better under-
standing the course content,
and the instructor can answer
student questions, which can-
not be accomplished with the
online or CD versions.
Students who wish to com-
plete the alternative course us-
ing the CD-ROM method will
need to contact the regional of-
fice at least two weeks prior to
the scheduled course field
day. A CD-ROM with instruc-
tions will be mailed at the stu-
dent's request.
A traditional course will be
held in Suwannee County
Tuesday-Thursday, Oct. 2-4
from 6-9 p.m. (location to be
determined) with the range be-
ing held Saturday, Oct. 6 from
8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at
Hamilton Correctional Center
in Jasper. Participants must at-
tend all dates to receive certifi-
cation.
Interested hunters in other
counties may check out
http://MyFWC.com/huntered
or call the Lake City Regional
Office at 386-758-0525 for
more information, dates and lo-
cations.

By Valerie Kalfrin
Tampa Tribune, Fla.
(MCT)


TAMPA - Officer John
Armao smiled at a Tampa cou-
ple, a red scar extending his
grin from the right comer of
his mouth down to his jaw.
"You're looking good,
man. Real good," said Daniel
Pitts, 40, as Pitts and his wife,
Gwen, hugged Armao.
The last time the three
saw each other was during a
gunfight May 11 when the
couple tended to the wounded
Armao after a convicted felon
shot him with a .44 Magnum.
The bullet went across his face
and into his shoulder.
"I think about it, and just
another inch either way, in-
stead of going across my face,
it would've been in my
mouth," Armao said. "You're
just thankful to see a friendly
face to help you. ... 'Thanks'
doesn't show my appreciation
enough."
Thursday, the Tampa Po-
lice Department honored the
couple with a plaque for their
courage and compassion.
"Police officers are paid
and trained to go into harm's
way. When you all go into
harm's way for us, you have a
special place in our heart," Po-
lice Chief Stephen Hogue
said.
Gwen Pitts said Armao's
well-being is what's impor-
tant. "All we really needed
was a handshake," she said,
causing Hogue and Armao to
laugh.
Police said Kevin Dexter
Hunter, 38, fired at Armao as
he and other officers tried to
arrest Hunter on a warrant at
711 N. Castle Court.
"He was hiding in a clos-
et. I said, 'Let me see your
hands.' It seemed like by the
time I said 'hands,' he had al-
ready shot me," Armao said.
The officer tried to de-
fend himself, but "I realized I
couldn't lift my arm," he said.
He ran from the room as
other officers engaged Hunter.
Someone returned fire.
Outside, Armao sought
cover. "In my. mind, the sus-
pect was chasing me and
shooting at me," he said.
He ran to the Pitts' drive-
way and ducked behind a
Jeep.
Daniel Pitts, who oper-
ates a painting business, had
been planning a fishing trip
that morning. Hearing the
gunfire, he reacted instinctive-
ly.
"I thought I got shot,"

Pitts said.
'That's how loud it was,"
his wife added.
He noticed the officer,
then saw a muzzle flash across

the way. "I was like, 'Oh, my
God,'" Pitts said.
Instead of dashing back
into the house, Daniel Pitts ran
to Armao. "Man, you OK?" he
said.
"I've been shot," Armao
replied.
Hunter kept firing, then
turned his gun on himself, po-
lice said.
Meanwhile, Pitts yelled
to his wife to call 911'. He told
Armao to come inside the
house, but Armao declined,
not wanting to endanger the
man's 11-year-old son and 14-
year-old daughter.
Gwen Pitts ordered the
children to hide in a bedroom
closet, then ran outside with a
towel.
"It was traumatic, real

traumatic," Daniel Pitts said.
"My wife rolled up a beach

towel and held it down on his
shoulder because that's where
the bleeding was."
Armao, 40, an 18-year
veteran, had never been shot
before.
"I didn't really think I
was going to die. There was
just a tremendous amount of
pain," he said. "The shoulder
hurt and the face was on fire. It
was all happening so fast but
in slow motion."
Armao is undergoing
physical therapy to regain his
arm's full range of motion.
The bullet shattered a bone
and destroyed a muscle in his
shoulder.
His face has no serious
damage; the bullet missed any
nerves that could have caused
his eye to droop or affected his
facial expressions. The scar
should fade after about a year.
His daughters, ages 10 and 6,
are fascinated by it, he said.
"They like to touch it."
The officer is eager to re-
turn to work, at least on light
duty. After the award ceremo-
ny, Daniel Pitts invited him
fishing.
"Once I get back," Armao
promised, "I'll stop by and say
hello."

A day at the




springs


By Carolea Evans
UF/IFAS Master Gardener
volunteer

Our Florida springs are a refreshing place for
summer fun. With an average year-round temper-
ature of 72 degrees, a leisurely dip in one of our
many springs is sure to cool you off on a hot sum-
mer day. North and Central Florida have the
largest network of springs anywhere else in the
world.
The water bubbling out of the springs looks
crystal clear and good enough to drink; but don't
be fooled by appearance. The water is sometimes
laden with excessive nutrients and toxins.
Springs can be contaminated by storm-water
runoff that carries pollutants like fertilizers, pesti-
cides, oils and antifreeze from our yards, parking
lots and roads. Contamination can also be caused
by dumping old batteries, appliances and trash
into sinkholes where leaching of pollutants af-
fects ground water that bubbles up through the
springs. Failing or improperly maintained septic
systems are also a source for nitrate, bacterial and


viral contaminants that end up in our ground wa-
ter which is where our drinking water comes
from.
For these reasons, as well as others, there is a
need to raise awareness and to educate our com-
munity about the unique geology of our Florida
springs. On Saturday, Aug. 4 a "Celebration of
Florida's Springs" was held at Poe Springs in
Alachua county. Suwannee County UF/IFAS Ex-
tension Agent Carolyn Saft and UF/IFAS Master
Gardener volunteer, Carolea Evans were there to
educate people on the Best Management Prac-
tices farmers use on their farms. Residents were
made aware of how they can make their own
yards more "Florida Friendly" with the adoption
of the Florida Yards and Neighborhoods pro-
gram. A groundwater model was used to demon-
strate how pollutants move through the soils,
sinkholes and lakes into our groundwater. The
groundwater is then pumped for drinking water
or comes up through holes in the aquifer which
we know as springs. Saft and Evans handed out
information on fertilizing, irrigating, controlling
pests and mulching. Approximately 500 people


came to the event and most walked away with a
lot of useful information and possibly a new per-
spective of our spring's environment..
Many other agencies, non-profit organizations
and environmental groups were there to offer a
variety of advice on septic tanks, water conser-
vation, pollution prevention and wildlife that de-
pend on springs' ecosystems. A young boy about


10 years old told us how he had already picked
up a lot of trash around the spring that morning
and how he and his family conserve water. Many
other folks pledged to do their part for spring's
protection. What can you do in your own yard?
For more information, contact.Carolyn Saft at
the Suwannee County Extension Service, 386-
362-2771.

since their har\ est season on Florida's north-
east Atlantic coast opened in June: From Jack-
sonville to Melbourne, shrimp boats are bring-
ing their white and brown treasure to the mar-
kets and restaurants nearest you.
Florida white shrimp is a popular delicacy
beloved by all-chefs, locals and visitors alike.
It has a sweet taste, firm bite and a distinctive


ocean flavor that makes it any
shrimp lover's favorite. Al-
though classified as white, this
shrimp's shell is actually
green-gray or blue-gray in col-
or when raw but "pinks up"
when cooked. Brown shrimp,
named for its reddish-brown
shell, has a firmer meat tex-
ture and a stronger flavor than
the white shrimp due to higher
iodine content. It is often used
in spicy gumbos and re-
moulades where its flavor can
hold its own with the season-
ings. Shrimp is harvested
year-round off Florida's At-
lantic and Gulf coasts but the
highest yield for brown
shrimp is June through August
while the highest yield for
white shrimp is October
through December.'
Shrimp is the most popular
seafood in the United States,
so it is good to know that it is
a naturally renewable and sus-
tainable resource. It is also an
excellent source of high-quali-
ty protein naturally low in fat,
carbohydrates and calories


making it an ideal
choice for a
healthy lifestyle.

Recognizing silent eye ailments


When it comes to their young children,
parents can often tell when a child is
sick or not feeling his best. Be it
coughing, restlessness or crying,
typically one or two telltale signs arise
indicating that something's not right.

However, in some cases signs aren't
that apparent. This is often problematic
when children are very young and aren't
able to relay problems to their parents
through language. This may be the case
with young children experiencing eye
problems. Vision problems aren't so
easy to detect. Which only emphasizes a
parent's need for diligence in looking for
certain indicators that a child could be
struggling with his vision.


'A-


4..
9 '


- Astigmatism: Astigmatism is
essentially a fancy word describing an
eye that is out of focus for both near and
. . . . -For some kids, eyeglas
distant vision. Focus is distorted because
the cornea, the clear dome covering the front of the eye, is
not perfectly round. Instead, the curvature is different in
one direction, creating a loss of focus in certain directions.
For example, a person with astigmatism might be able to
read a street sign horizontally, but would not be able to
read the same sign at equal distance if the sign was
vertical.

Headaches, eye strain. ad squinting are indicators pf
astigmatism. In certain cases, astigmatism is not
problematic. However, when astigmatism is an issue,
children could begin to ignore the affected eye and rely
solely on the fully functioning eye. The degree of
astigmatism in infants often decreases in the first year or
two of life, so parents needn't worry too much. If detected
early, chances are children will be prescribed eyeglasses
that should alleviate the problem.

� Blepharitis: Blepharitis refers to an inflammation of the
edge of the eyelid, resulting in a burning or stinging
sensation and possibly an itch. Parents often mistake
blepharitis with allergies because children typically rub
their eyes frequently and, in advanced cases, might have


;ses are the best way to combat common vision pr(
redness on the internal edge of the


eyelids.


Blepharitis typically proves very irritating to children
and, because rubbing their eyes is a common result, they
might develop other inflammatory problems such as a stye.
If a child has blepharitis, gently clean the eyelids and
eyelashes to eliminate bacteria and debris. Also, apply a
warm washcloth to the eyes for 5 minutes, three times per
day. Heat will improve blood flow and help relieve the ,
inflammation.

� Stye: A stye is a bacterial infection that occurs near the
edge of the eyelid. Styes are not common in adults because
adults are generally more inclined to clean their eyelids
and eyelashes and are therefore less susceptible to bacterial
infections. Children, however, are not always so diligent.
An external stye will infect an oil gland near the edge of
the eyelid, while an internal stye begins deep in the eyelid
and extends out to the edge. Antibiotics might be necessary
to treat a stye and, similar to treating blepharitis, parents
should apply a warm washcloth with soap specifically
designed for eyelids for 5 minutes 3 times per day.

Dear Classified Guys,
Every week when I pick up the news-
paper, I scan the employment sec-
tion. Not because I need work, but I
like to make sure I still have a good
job with competitive pay. When I see
one paying less, I feel better about
going to work the next day. During
my weekly scan, I've seen some pret-
ty strange ads. One was a flag com-
pany that needed someone to climb
flagpoles and install ornaments at
the top. Not quite the job for me
since I'm afraid of heights. Then last
week I saw an ad for someone to
consult as an "in-field mattress
inspector". I thought it was a joke
until I saw the salary. It's more than I
make. I figure I'm qualified since I
sleep on a mattress every night.
How hard can inspecting one be?
I'm considering answering this
ad, but before I apply, can
you tell me what a mattress !- )
inspector really does? I'm .r "'
hoping there are naps involved.

Carry: It would be nice to
have a job where napping is a require-
ment. I'm sure a lot of people would be
lining up to apply.
Cash: It's probably the only inter-
view where you could show up with a


pillow and blanket.
Carry: Despite how the title sounds,
"mattress inspectors" don't get to lie
around all day. In fact, the job requires
quite a bit of travel.
Cash: In-field mattress inspectors are
more like investigators. Here's how it
works. Let's say you bought a mattress
from a major manufacturer. A few years
later, after several backaches, you think
your mattress is defective or sagging too.
much. You contact the manufacturer
and request a replacement under the
warranty. The manufacturer hires an
independent company who then inspects
your mattress to determine if it is faulty.
Carry: That's where the mattress
inspector comes in. Theirjob is to travel


S I. ..).- "

to your house and determine if the mat-
tress is defective. However, instead of
lying down and taking a nap, they make
a visual inspection of the mattress, box
spring and frame. They may also take
some basic measurements and photo-
graphs as well. .
Cash: The information is passed onto
the company to determine if the mat-
tress qualifies for replacement or repair
under the warranty. Regardless of the
outcome, the inspection company is
paid for their services. �
Carry: If you like to travel and meet
with people, then it may be a good job
for you. But if your goal is to lie down
on the job, you probably need to look
elsewhere.


zzz
Most of us never get enough sleep,
which can riake for a long tiring day at
work. That growing number of weary
workers is gaining the attention of com-
panies as it impacts the bottom line.
Reduced productivity due to sleep dep-
rivation is estimated to cost businesses
about 18 billion dollars a year accord-
ing to Psychology Today. Considering
the potential losses, more and more
companies are encouraging break times
or offering napping rooms for employ-
ees to refresh themselves. The only
thing better would be to have someone
else do your job while you're resting.
All Tucked In
"Sleep tight" is one of those phrases
many parents use when they tuck their
children into bed for the evening. Yet
it's origin is believed to date back far
beyond our grandparents generation.
Back in the 16th and 17th centuries, a
mattress was typically made from straw
or down. It was then placed on a lattice
of ropes suspended from a wood frame.
The ropes often required regular tight-
ening, which in turn created the phrase
"sleep tight".

The Softer Side
The retail world of selling mattress-
es can be very competitive. The owner
of the store where I work has a policy
that any mattress can be returned with-
in 20 days for a full refund. To be hon-
est, most people never have a problem.
Last week, however, I received one of
those rare calls for a return.
A woman named Rhonda told me
that she loved the bedroom set she
bought, but Henry couldn't stand the
soft mattress. "He's been restless
every night," she complained. "We've
tried switching sides and flipping the
mattress, but he finally gave up and
slept on the floor."
"That's horrible," I replied. "Does
your husband have a bad back?"
"Oh, Henry's not my husband," she
said. "He's my basset hound!"

. By Jose Iglesias, Gina Pace
The Miami Herald
(MCT)
As soon. as he saw the Nis-
san sedan veer off the Turn-
pike and into a canal Thurs-
day night, Jose Nishijima's
instincts kicked ini.
He jerked his car to a stop
on the highway's shoulder,
jumped out and leapt into the
cold, muddy water. The Nis-
san was sinking fast, hardly
visible from the surface. All
he could hear was a woman
screaming for help.
Nishijima tried breaking
the driver's window with a
rock, but that didn't work.'He
yelled for the woman inside
to roll down her window.
When she did, the car
plunged even farther into the
12-foot deep canal.
"I reached in and grabbed
whatever I could -- hair,
hands, anything," Nishijima
said in Spanish from his
Southwest ' Miami-Dade
home late Thursday.
He pulled the woman out
through her window open-
ing, and other passersby
helped drag her to the canal
bank. They kept her warm
and alert until paramedics ar-
rived.
"When I got there, Jose
had tears in his eyes," said
Miami-Dade fire rescue Lt.
'Eddy Ballester. "All I could
do was give him a hug and
tell him he saved :that
woman's life."


The woman, whose name
was not released but was said
to be in her 40s, was taken to
Kendall Regional Medical
Center, where she was recov-
ering from scrapes and bruis-
es, Ballester said.
"The woman was driving
southbound on Florida's
Turnpike just before 7 p.m.
when her vehicle was hit
from behind, Ballester said.
It slid down the embankment
and into a canal near the
Southwest Eighth Street exit.
It is unknown if the other dri-
ver was cited in the accident.
After Nishijifna pulled her
to safety and realized no one
else was trapped in the car,
he told the woman she would
be all right. He did not take
credit for the rescue.
"I told her God had saved
her," Nishijima said.
Nishijima, 39, was on his.
way home from his ware-
house job with his 30-year-
old future stepson and anoth-
er man when he saw the car
go off the road.
THE RESCUE
He pulled off his blue polo
shirt, kicked off his shoes
and dropped his cellphone to
the ground before jumping
in. He doesn't remember
what the water felt like.
"I didn't feel anything," he
said. "I just wanted to get as
many people out as I could."
But Ballester said the wa-
ter was pitch black and cold -
- and filled with weeds and


muck.
Miami-Dade rescue divers
searched the submerged car
for other victims, but the
woman was' the. only one
who had been inside.
The effort left Nishijima
exhausted, he said. As res-
cuers arrived, Nishijima was
resting on the canal bank'
while his son and others
tended to the woman.
"The man is a hero,"
Ballester said. "A true Good
Samaritan."
Nishijima moved to South
Florida in March after about
seven years in New Jersey.
He's set to marry his fiancee
next Friday.
It wasn't the first time
Nishijima has been a hero in
the water.
'GOD IS WITH ME'
About eight years ago, he
saved a boy from drowning
off the beach in his native
Peru. More recently, he
brought his fiancee to safety
after a boat they were in cap-
sized in Pennsylvania.
After Thursday's incident,
Nishijima said he was re-
lieved to know the Woman
would be all right.
Medics had to bandage
Nishijima's hand, which he
injured trying to break the
car's window. He didn't mind
the injury, and he said he
wouldn't hesitate to do it
again.
"I never think something
like this is going to happen,"
he said. "But I believe God isO
with me."
