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.

4 CRASH CLAIMS LIFE
S OF MCALPIN MAN
A 21-year-old McAlpin man died Thurs-
day in a crash on 168th Street near CR 349.
Dennis James Conway Jr. was headed west
on 168th Street at about 11:45 p.m. when
his 2003 Isuzu trooper partially left the
roadway, according to Florida Highway Pa-
trol reports. Conway overcorrected and the
vehicle overturned, partially ejecting Con-
way, said FHP. A passenger, Lonnie Purvis,
21, Live Oak, suffered minor injuries, ac-
cording to reports.
Alcohol was not a factor in the crash,
said FHP.
See obituary, Page 7A.


BHS TEACHER,
) MOTHER DIE
A popular teacher at
Branford High died sud-
denly Thursday, apparently
minutes after discovering
the body of her mother.
Jackie Barnes, 58, arrived
home after school Thurs-
day to discover that her
mother, Anna M. Miller,
76, had died. Barnes died Jackie Barnes
after dialing 911, authori-
ties say.
BHS principal Ted Roush was visibly
shaken Friday morning as he and area pas-
tors met with students and faculty.
"She taught me a lot of what it took to be a
classroom teacher," he said. "She had a grasp
on how to deal with students and with par-
ents. I learned a lot from her. I'll miss her as
a mentor, teacher and friefid. It will be hard
to fill her shoes here at BHS."


SKATEBOARD ORDINANCE
ADOPTED BY COUNCIL
See complete story, Page 11 A.
Skateboarders have new rules to follow
while cruising along city streets. The Live
Oak City Council adopted a final version of
its skateboard ordinance Aug. 14.
The new rules prohibit skateboarders
from riding on city streets, sidewalks or
parking lots in commercially zoned areas.
It will not apply to residential areas within
the city. However, those who get a business
owner's permission to ride in parking areas
may do so between 8 a.m. and sunset. The
regulations also apply to those using roller
skates, roller blades and other similar de-
vices.

sy A Live Oak
woman alleged-
.' * , ly shot by her
father was listed
in serious but
' stable condition
at Shands UF
Tuesday.
Cameron Lori Lamb,
37, was shot in
the chest and back at her home near
the intersection of county roads 49 and
252 at about 9:05 a.m. Tuesday, said,
Sheriff Tony Cameron. The alleged as-
sailant, Henry L. Lamb, 55, of 21214
51st Drive, Lake City was caught after
a five-hour manhunt. He was booked


into the Suwannee County Jail at about
2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Lamb stole a truck at the scene, said
Cameron, but later abandoned it for his
own vehicle. He later returned to the.
scene and attempted to shoot another
daughter and a granddaughter but his
.22 caliber rifle malfunctioned, accord-
ing to Cameron. "I think it was going
to be a murder-suicide," said Cameron.
Lori Lamb was scheduled to undergo
surgery yesterday or today.
Cameron came upon Lamb and ran
him down himself, authorities at the
scene said.

Brick structures

could pose traffic
hazard, county says
By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com
The county may soon prohibit brick mail-
boxes on public rights-of-way in the wake of
complaints by area resi-
dents that such structures
pose a safety hazard.
S. Concerns surround mo-
S.. tourists striking mailboxes
constructed of brick, block
, or other solid material
placed on the public right-
of-way on county roads.
Live Oak resident
Fowler Wayne Long met with
commissioners last week
to voice his concerns.
"That type of mailbox is
unnecessary and creates a
hazardous situation by
anyone's standards," he
said. "The county commis-
sioners and owners of
such mailboxes are setting
themselves up for a multi-
million dollar lawsuit."
Maxwell "Some of them are too
close to the road. And the
way they are constructed, if someone hit
them it's so much brick and mortar it would
tear up the car and send bricks flying,"

Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is urging
homeowners to take steps to pre-
vent a termite infestation and
check on pest control companies
prior to signing a contract. The re-
minder comes as drywood ter-
mite swarming season gets under
way. Signs of a drywood infesta-
tion and control measures are
very different from those associ-
ated with subterranean termites.
Unlike subterranean termites,
drywood termites do not require
contact with the soil, so treatment
of the soil under and around a
structure is not an effective pro-
tection against these destructive
pests. Baiting systems are also not
an effective prevention against
drywood termites. Drywood ter-
mites remain hidden within the
wood or other material on which
they feed, so they are seldom
seen. They occur in small
colonies in isolated wood pieces
but multiple colonies can infest a
structure at the same time.
Signs of drywood termite in-
festation include:
* Winged insects coming out in
the evenings and at night attracted
to lights and televisions.
* Discarded wings around win-
dow sills.
* Wooden pellets smaller than
rice grains accumulating on floors
or under furniture. The pellets are
cream to reddish-brown or black
and are not related to the color of
the wood.
* Surface blisters on wood.
The termites sometimes tunnel
close to the surface giving wood a
blistered appearance.
* Infestations can often be de-
tected by tapping on wood every
few inches because damaged
wood sounds hollow.

Drywood termites don't cause
damage as quickly as other types
but because they fly into struc-
tures are more difficult to keep
out of a home and to identify.
Bronson urges homeowners to
have uninterrupted termite pro-
tection service from a licensed
pest control company. He says
consumers need to be sure a ter-
mite contract covers all types of
termites. A new rule put into place
last year requires that pest control
companies must clearly tell con-
sumers if the contract covers both
types of termites.
"We took steps to ensure the
contracts tell consumers specifi-
cally what is covered," Bronson
said. "But consumers with exist- -
ing contacts need to check to see
exactly what is covered and make

Adrienne Boyette attends FFA State Conference


Adrienne Boyette of Suwannee High
School FFA Suwannee Sr. Chapter had the
privilege of attending Florida Leadership
Adventures in July. This conference is spon-
sored by the Florida FFA Foundation and is
designed to teach various leadership skills .
that can be implemented in the lives of the
attendees. During the conference, FFA mem- .. '
bers were introduced to various strategies. .
that would further develop the leadership ,
skills necessary to be successful in all areas
of life. All week students participated in
various team building activities fostering
communication, team work, patience and
cooperation.
The theme of the conference "Let's Cele-
brate," focused on various things we cele-
brate in life that we can learn from. The ses- '
sions focused on celebrations ranging from ' '
"Wedding Bells: Making the Commitment"
to "New Year's Eve: Setting Priorities." . .
Boyette learned that these action-packed
sessions were more than just a fun time. She ,
met members from across the state and de- .
veloped friendships that will last a lifetime.
Not only did Boyette learn how to set
SMART (specific, measurable, attainable,
realistic, timely) goals for herself, but also
learned how to help her chapter set goals
that will benefit all her fellow chapter mem-
bers and our community.
All week students focused on communica-
tion skills that would help them reach the
pinnacle of leadership. The ultimate level of
leadership, personhood, is only achieved by
those that our followed because of who they
are and what the represent. Although few
people reach this level of leadership, Adrienne Boyette
Boyette truly believes that through the FFA organization one can achieve what may seem im-
possible!
If you would like more information concerning the state's organization or leadership confer-
ences offered by the FFA, you can visit www.flaffa.org or the Florida FFA Foundation's Web
site at www.floridaffafoundation.org

Nelson honors Cornett, Carrithers


Jean Cornett and Charles
Carrithers, owners along with
James Cornett of the Spirit of
the Suwannee Music Park,
were honored this week by
Senator Bill Nelson. The two
were presented Congressional
Certificates of Recognition by
the Senator during a Town
Hall style dinner meeting at
the Spirit of the Suwannee.
- Jean Cornett has produced
.the Lexington Bluegrass Fes-
tival in Lexington Kentucky
for over 30 years. In the fall of
1985 she was visiting relatives
in the Live Oak area when she
first became aware of the
:Spirit of the Suwannee. At the
time, the park was not opera-
tional and a fence secured en-
try. Legend has it that she
hopped the fence and took a
look around the campground.
In her words "I just fell in love
with it. It is just a beautiful
place."
In 1985 Jean Cornett con-
vinced the county to let her
-manage the Spirit of the
-Suwannee and in 1997 with
.her big brother's help she and
Charles Carrithers purchased
the campground. Since then,
Charles and Jean have made
,substantial improvements to
.the park adding capital im-
provements, a restaurant, sev-
eral outdoor stages, more than
,600 improved campsites, park
models, a canoe outpost, a

try store, and the Park pro-
duces more than 50 events
each year.
Jean's brother, Charles Car-
rithers is a World War II veter-
an who served in the Mer-
chant Marines. Afterward he
briefly worked as an airplane
mechanic in the Tampa area,
than began a career buying
and selling real estate in Vir-
ginia and all along the south-
east, including Florida.
Together, the brother and
sister, in conjunction with
James Cornett and the Spirit
team, have developed envi-
ronmental education programs
and have one of the nation's
best music education pro-
grams for kids. They offer
these programs to kids to pro-
mote music heritage and
awareness about our valuable
natural resources. These pro-
grams are offered quarterly
and they are currently offered
to the kids and their parents
for FREE. The Park has be-
come one of the most amazing
attractions in the North Flori-
da Area and generates a sig-
nificant economic impact to
the tourism economy in the re-
gion.
In awarding these certifi-
cates, Nelson's office noted,
'tourism is a very difficult un-
dertaking in rural regions
across the nation. It takes

well as all the incentives of-
fered. You are invited to join
them and see what your
-hometown guard unit is doing
to ensure your freedom and
security at home and abroad.

From our


readers
Dear Editor:
I have a wonderful story to tell and
thought you might be interested since
it is about one of your local citizens.
My husband and I were passing
through Live Oak via Interstate 10 on
Sunday, Aug. 5. We stopped at Subway
for a to-go lunch. I order, paid and my
husband took our order while I went
into the restroom. Being in a hurry, I
inadvertently left my wallet behind. I
didn't realize this until the next morn-
ing, Monday, when the manager, Anita
Rountree, called me to let me know
that I had left it behind. An unknown
customer turned it into Anita, she then
went to the trouble and expense to call
me long distance. After thanking her
and getting over the shock, she in-
formed me that she would mail it by
priority mail, again at her expense, be-
cause she thought I would need my
credentials immediately.
I feel that this is a wonderful human
interest story about someone in your
hometown. She deserves recognition,
not because she returned my wallet,
but because she is such an honest, car-
ing person in our hurried, busy world.
I am a total stranger to her and she
cared enough to go above and beyond
for me. This could have happened to
you or anyone else and I believe that
she would have done the same thing.
So, as you can imagine, we now
have a "stopping place" as we travel
Interstate 10. We'll always stop.by to
say hello and thank you again.
Anita Rountree is your hometown
hero! I hope she will see this letter in
your local paper and know how appre-
ciated she is.
Anita Rountree, you have restored
my confidence in the public. Thank
you for being so special and honest.
Sincerely,
Jakie McBrayer

OPINION

The Pope sanctions the OECD thugs


London's Times Online recent-
ly reported that, according to
Vatican sources, Pope Benedict
XVI is working on his second
encyclical, a doctrinal pro-
nouncement that will condemn
tax evasion as "socially unjust."
(See
www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/com-
ment/faith/article2237625.ece.)


The pontiff will denounce the
use of tax havens and offshore
banking by wealthy individuals because it reduces tax
revenues for the benefit of society as a whole.
Pope Benedict could benefit from a bit of schooling.
Tax avoidance is legal conduct whereby individuals
arrange their affairs so as to reduce the amount of in-
come that is taxable. Tax avoidance can run the gamut of
legal acts, such as investing in tax-free bonds, having
employer-paid health plans, making charitable gifts,
quitting a job and banking in another country. Tax eva-
sion refers to the conduct by individuals to reduce their
tax obligation by illegal means. Tax evasion consists of
illegal acts such as falsely claiming dependents, income
underreporting and padding expenses.
Pope Benedict's second encyclical puts him squarely in
company with a group of thugs known as the Organiza-
tion for Economic Cooperation & Development
(OECD), an international bureaucracy headquartered in
Paris and comprised of 30 industrial nations, mostly in
Western Europe, the Pacific Rim and North America.
One of its reports concluded that low-tax nations are bad
for the world economy and identified 35 jurisdictions
that are guilty of "harmful tax competition."
In the OECD's view, harmful tax competition is when
a nation has taxes so low that saving and investment are
lured away from high-taxed OECD countries. The black-
list of countries they've identified as tax havens, having
strong financial privacy laws, low taxes or zero taxes on
certain activities, includes Panama, the Bahamas,
Liberia, Liechtenstein, the Marshall Islands and Monaco.
The OECD demands these nations, as well as offshore.
financial centers in the Caribbean and the Pacific, in ef-
fect surrender their fiscal sovereignty and act as deputy
tax collectors for nations like France and Germany. This


would be a dream for politi-
cians and bad news for the
world's taxpayers; fortunately
the hard work of the Center for
Freedom and Prosperity has
stymied the OECD's proposed
tax cartel.
Pope Benedict shares some of
the OECD's goals in their at-
tack on low-tax jurisdictions.


To support its welfare state, Eu-
ropean nations must have high
taxes. Government spending exceeds 50 percent of the
GDP in France, Sweden, Germany and Italy. If Euro-
peans, as private citizens and businessmen, relocate, in-
vest or save in other jurisdictions, it means less money is
available to be taxed to support their welfare states. The
pope expresses the same concern when he says that tax
havens reduce tax revenues for the benefit of society as a
whole. Survival of an ever-growing welfare state re-
quires an assault on jurisdictional tax competition.
There's a more fundamental question that I'd put to the
pope: Should the Roman Catholic Church support the
welfare state? Or, put more plainly, should the Church
support the use of the coercive powers of government to
enable one person to live at the expense of another? Put
even more plainly, should the Church support the gov-
ernment's taking the property of one person and giving it
to another to whom it doesn't belong? When such an act
is done privately, we call it theft.
The pope might say that the welfare state reflects the
will of the people. Would that mean the Church inter-
prets God's commandment to Moses "Thou shalt not
steal" as not an absolute, but as "Thou shalt not steal un-
less you got a majority vote in parliament or congress"?
I share Pope Benedict's desire to assist our fellow man
in need. But I believe that reaching into one's own pock-
et to do so is praiseworthy and laudable. Reaching into
another's pocket to assist one's fellow man in need is de-
spicable and worthy of condemnation.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


: I take good care of my teeth. Why should
I go for a professional cleaning?
A: No matter how well you take care of your
teeth, even with faithful brushing and
flossing, you should have them cleaned by a
professional at least twice a year. At home
you simply cannot reach all tooth surfaces
thoroughly. A professional - either your
dentist or dental hygienist - has the
equipment and training to get into spaces
you can't reach to remove plaque and the
hard compounds it eventually forms,
especially at the gum line.
Among the equipment are scalers, small
implements the dentist or hygienist will use
to scrape calculus and tartar off teeth, or an
ultrasonic machine, which vibrates plaque
deposits loose. The particles are then
flushed away with a stream of water.
Professional cleaning is a good way to head
off periodontal, or gum, disease. Sometimes
your dentist may apply a topical anesthetic
to the gums or Inject a local anesthetic if the
process proves painful. After your teeth are
cleaned, they can be polished. The smooth
surface is less hospitable to plaque. Talk with
your dentist about the benefits of - and
schedule for - regular cleaning.

Who should get the Meningitis vaccine?
Meningitis is an inflammation of the membranes and cerebrospinal
fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Most cases occur in
persons between the ages of 15 and 24, and older adults tend to have
a higher incidence than young children. In most instances, this is
caused by a viral infection, although bacterial and fungal infections
may also lead to this condition. Typically, bacterial meningitis is
more severe than viral meningitis, and may be fatal if left untreated.
Symptoms may include a high fever, severe headache, confusion,
seizures, stiff neck, and sensitivity to light. Immunizations used to
prevent bacterial meningitis include haemophilus influenzae type b
vaccine and meningococcal conjugate vaccine. Recently, the US
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended that
all teenagers between the ages of 11 and 18 years receive a bacterial
meningitis vaccination to reduce the incidence of this condition.
Intravenous antibiotics are required for treatment of acute bacterial
meningitis. The type of antibiotics used depends on the type of
bacteria causing the condition. This may be determined by
examining a sample of the cerebrospinal fluid. Rest, fluids, and
over-the-counter pain relievers are recommended for associated
fever and body aches. Antiviral medications also may be prescribed.

This my first article for the Suwannee
Democrat, and I appreciate the kindness fl,
of Myra Regan, longtime friend, col- 0 -
league and publisher of the newspaper
and, in addition, my gratitude to editor .. -
Robert Bridges who is a good, solid
journalist who has a vision for the needs
of his readers in this region. I have
written a weekly column for the "Jasper
News" for over twenty years, but this is
my first "foray" outside the boundaries
of Hamilton County with a column that,
hopefully readers will enjoy and look
forward to reading.
For those of you who aren't from around here, we are
in the deepest part of the "Dog Days" of summer. Sup-
posedly, each year around July 28, the "Dog Star" draws
closer to the earth radiating additional heat and that,
paired with the heat of another large star, the sun makes
for intensive heat for about 40 days. There are all kinds
of old sayings and folk legends associated with "dog
days," and I have lived in the region long enough to give
credence to some of these such as the fact that "Rat-
tlesnakes go blind" during "Dog Days" and if it rains the
first day of dog days, it will rain some each day of "Dog
Days." Whatever you believe about "Dog Days," I can
tell you that this time of the year, it is, truly, a "Hot Dog"
of a time. Thanks be to God for the blessing of air condi-
tioning. It is, in my opinion, one of the greatest inven-
tions of mankind. I remember when I was a child in the
region, air conditioning was a luxury, and businesses that
were air-conditioned advertised the fact they were with a
little penguin wearing a pair of earmuffs and a muffler
(long scarf). There are good things that come out of bad
situations, and, out of the Yellow Fever epidemic many
years ago in Apalachicola, Florida, Dr. John Gorrie in-
vented a way of "cooling down" the fevered patients and
thus was born "AC." Thank you, Dr. Gorrie. .
Speaking of thanks, my sincere thanks goes out to
James Cornett and all the staff at Spirit of the Suwannee
Music Park for the outstanding job they do in providing
quality musical events for our area through the year.
Even during the heat of summer, James and his dedicat-
ed staff have worked hard to present good, quality enter-
tainment with their Saturday on the Suwannee concert
series. If you haven't tried the SOS Cafe at the park, you
really should. The food is delicious and well prepared,
and there are specials almost each night. Even though
we are in the midst of summer, our minds "turn to" the
upcoming events at Spirit of the Suwannee including'
Magnolia Festival and the ever popular Festival of Lights
that begins right after Thanksgiving and provides our
area with so much holiday cheer. It just gets better and
better each year. Many thanks to James Cornett, Robin
White,' James' mom, "Big" Jean Cornett, uncle Charles
Carrithers, and many, many others staff members at the
Spinr'of the Suwannee %who bring quality events and ern-
tertainment to our area. We are glad to have Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park right here "Way Down upon the
Suwannee River."
By the time this article is published we, in Hamilton
County, will have decided whether or not we will offer
"Liquor by the Drink." This has been a very controver-
sial issue and was decided on the ballot on Tuesday, Au-
gust 21, 2007, in a special election. For some, there will
be "joy in the camp" and, for others, there will be "sad,
singing and slow walking," but, whatever way the people
decided, the forum was a "fair one," and we must accept
the outcome. The only' ones who should really stay
silent regarding this matter are those who didn't vote. I
really have little patience with people who complain and


'c/the banks of the

to use a good, old north Florida colloquialism, "belly-
ache" about the way things are, especially when they
don't "cast a ballot." So, very soon, you'll either be able
to come on my side of the river and have a cocktail
(legally), or not. This referendum is an indicator that
"times they are a changing" right here in our beloved
Suwannee River Valley.
I have always been a strong proponent for historic
preservation, and I am happy to see that the historic
Dowling House located on SR 136, Duval Street, has
been preserved and is being used as a nice restaurant,
"Grace Manor." I enjoyed the privilege or working with
one of the individuals responsible for this restoration and
preservation project, Fred Andrews. Fred was, without a
doubt, one of the finest educators with whom I ever had
the privilege of working. We worked together at Suwan-
nee Elementary East where, by the way, simply by acci-
dent, I made history. I will go down in the annals of
Suwannee Co.unty History as being the "last principal" of
Suwannee Elementary East. The school year after I left,
the school became Suwannee Primary School. I enjoyed
some happy days working with many wonderful staff
members, parents, and community members during my
years in Suwannee County and working with, Fred was a
"big plus." It does my heart a lot of good to see the
wonderful work done at the historic Dowling House.
Live Oak and Suwannee County can be justifiably proud
of this accomplishment.
Another fine Suwannee County educator with whom I
was associated for many years is now the present Mayor
of Live Oak.. Of course I am referring to Sonny Nobles.
Sonny and his sweet wife, Diane, are old friends, and I
hold both of them in high regard. Sonny does a great job
serving as Mayor of Live Oak, and I truly believe that
there isn't a soul who loves Live Oak and Suwanriee
County more than Sonny Nobles. Thank you, Sonny, for
your continued legacy of dedicated public service to all
of us who call the Suwannee River Valley our beloyed
home.
During this time of the year when the temperature
soars above a hundred degrees, my mind ventures inf
many different directions. I am reminded of childhood
days when with, my beloved maternal grandparents, the
late J. Boman and Annie Taylor, I would go to Suwannee
Springs and swii in its cool, refreshing waters. I had the
best of both worlds when it came to swimming during
the summer months. When I visited Papa and Grandma
Taylor on the farm outside of Live Oak, they often took
me to Suwannee Springs and growing up in White
Springs, my cousins and I had season passes to White
Springs. We spent the better part of our lives during the
summer months down at the "springhouse" in White
Springs. When I was a child, the springs at White
Springs rushed into the river at an incredible 32,400 gal-
lons a minute. Sadly, the springs don't "run" like this
anymore at White Springs. Since I am not a hydrologist,
I cannot scientifically tell you the reason, but I have a
pretty good idea, although my idea would be refuted by
many. I am so happy to have grown up in this area when


I enjoyed the "full fruits" of what nature
had to offer in the way of pristine, cold,
clear spring waters in which to swim. I
hope we are wise enough to leave many of
these treasures to future generations.
In the days in which we live, I guess we
have more conveniences and, from these,
some people have made enough money to
J- T ' "bum a wet mule," but the summertime heat
also reminds me of the refreshments we en-
joyed at the various pharmacy counters in
Live Oak and Jasper. How wonderful it was
to go to the drugstore and order a refreshing
vanilla coke or cherry smash. I can also remember how
my mother loved ordering a lime freeze made with lime
sherbet, and my Daddy, the late Wade Bullard, loved a
coke float. You can go through chain restaurants and
purchase some of these same treats but, somehow, it just
isn't the same. When I was a teenager in Jasper and
working for the late Butch and Virginia Bridges Chandler
at their tobacco warehouse office, we would often send
up to Woodrow Wises' Pharmacy or Kayo McGhinn's
and, if it was really hot, we would have them send us a
"shot of ammonia" with coke and, that would really pick
you up during the summertime. In Live Oak, I have fond,
fond memories of the A and W Drive In. I loved going
there and orderiAg their chicken basket or their wonder-
ful hamburgers and who can forget that delicious cole
slaw they served. I think the only place who has them
beat on cole slaw is Raleigh Brown at the Brown
Lantern. Raleigh and Cla4ire are outstanding restaura-
teurs, but they could "patent" their cole slaw recipe and
make a mint. Back to the A and W, I remember buying
their root beer by the gallon, and the gallon jugs were
"glass" jugs. Good memories of growing up right here,
"Way Down upon the Suwannee River."
'Today, tobacco is practically a bad word, and with "just
cause," but when I was growing up in north Florida if
many preachers had "bore down" too much on the evils
of growing tobacco, they would have found themselves
looking for another church. Flue cured tobacco was a big
part of the economy for much of our area, and my pater-
nal uncle and Daddy, the late Warren and Wade Bullard,
grew a lot of flue cured tobacco and my brother Jerry
Lawrence and I worked many days in all phases of the
tobacco operation from sowing the tiny microscopic to-
bacco seeds in "beds" until the final leaves of the crop
were sold. This process was really year round, but it was
really intensive about eight months out of the year.
When I was a young boy and even as a grown adult in
this area, there was an "air" of excitement that surround-
ed the opening of the flue cured tobacco markets in our
area. There was a whole way of life associated with the
markets from the owners of the warehouses to the "cir-
cuit riders" with their chauffeur driven automobiles, to
the auctioneer with his "sing song chant of a staccato of
prices ended with "Sold American" or "Reynolds" or
"Taylor." Today, in our area, some of the old warehouses
remain as rusty monuments to a "way of life in our re-
gion" that is all, but "Gone with the Wind."
Until I write to you next month, I wish all my readers
the best and, to all the new educators and the veteran
ones, remember and, this is my basic philosophy of.edu-
cation--"Children may not always remember what we
taught them, but they will always remember how we
made them feel." t

Skateboard ordinance finalized


By Vanessa Fultz

Skateboarders have new
rules to follow while cruis-

Firefighters
Continued From Page 1A

The county hired Public
Safety Director/Fire Chief
Scott Racow in February, at
which time EMS and the
county fire department
merged. Racow assumed lead-
ership of both departments.
But it seemed to be an open
question as to who was in
charge of volunteer services.
Two members of the
Suwannee County Volunteer
Fire Governing Board ad-
dressed the commission Aug.
21 asking for clarification
concerning leadership of fire
services.
Tim Nagy; chairman of the
board, said last week board
members differ in enforcing
new laws regarding training
requirements and disagree on
issues concerning fire equip-
ment. He and Tracy Dowdy,
another board member, came
to commissioners for help.
Board member Ronnie Cook
was also present at the meet-
ing.
In response commissioners
said that Racow was in charge
of overseeing training and reg-
ulating the purchase of fire
equipment.
County Commission Chair-
man Randy Hatch said some


ing along city streets. The
Live Oak City Council
adopted a final version of its
skateboard ordinance Aug.
14.


volunteer departments have
raised funds in the past to pur-
chase equipment which they
allowed untrained firefighters
to use.
"This was unsanctioned
equipment and illegal equip-
ment as far as the state is con-
cerned," he said.
Commissioner Jesse -
Caruthers said one reason for
placing Racow in charge was
to make sure all equipment is
compatible.
County Commissioner Billy
Maxwell said the volunteer
* departments began as individ-
ual corporations under their
own leadership. For the most
part each department raised its
own funds to purchase equip-
ment.
After the county fire depart-
ment was established volun-
teers were required to lease
their equipment to the county
in exchange for insurance cov-
erage.
Now, volunteer services will
be funded by the county and
Racow will regulate new
equipment purchases.
Racow said the county has
yet to decide whether volun-
teers will still be allowed to
obtain new equipment through
other revenue streams outside
of what the county provides.


Praise for volunteer fire services
Hatch praised the volunteer fire service.
"We have some of the most talented and dedicated volun-
teer firefighters on the planet. Some of them could probably
teach the course," he said, but noted the training is required
by law.
Nagy, who volunteers at the O'Brien station, said all of the
volunteers there have been through the 160-hour-course and
are awaiting certification.
The O'Brien station has taken on extra duties to man the
station a few times. Nagy said the long-term goal is to have
volunteer firefighters on call at the staton 24/7. Currently no
one is on call at any of the volunteer units.
"It will take the burden off the paid guys, especially dur-
ing crisis," Nagy said.
"This reduces response time by half," Hatch said. "because
you don't have to go get the truck They are sitting there-
with the keys in the ignition."
Racow said all volunteers play a vital role.
"We need the volunteers," Racow said. "We can't provide
fire protection for our area without them."
Maxwell stood up for the volunteer fire services.
A few months ago the'county wanted to move a truck
from the McAlpin station to another station. McAlpin asked
the county to purchase the truck instead.
"They raised every dollar to buy that truck." Maxwell
said.
"I've always thought they didn't get a fair deal for what
they're giving back to the county," he added.



That

County Commissioner Billy
Maxwell said Monday.
"Bricks could hit the wind-
shield or someone else's car."
Commissioner Ivie Fowler
said the problem exists on
paved highways where mo-
torist travel 55 mph or more.
Maxwell said commission-
ers have gotten citizen com-
plaints for several months.
Some have brought photos of
concerned mailboxes to the
board.
"It's a hazard we want to ad-
dress before someone gets
hurt," he said.
Maxwell said the county
will likely adopt Department
of Transportation standards,
which already restrict such
mailboxes on state and federal
roads.
DOT Public Information
Officer Gina Busscher said the
state requires standard metal
mailboxes with breakaway
posts on roads it maintains. If
struck, the post will break and
pull out of the ground, causing
minimal damage to a vehicle.
On state and federal roads,
mailboxes cannot be placed
more than 24 inches in the
ground or anchored in a way
to prevent them from coming
out when hit.
The same rule applies to
road signs.


"The purpose is to fall over
when it's hit," Busscher said.
Busscher said rules prevent
damage or injury to motorists
and improve safety along the
road.
, "Safety is our number one
priority," she said.
While resurfacing roads or
completing other projects,
DOT notifies residents who
are out of compliance to get
their mailboxes replaced.
Busscher said DOT is
scheduled to begin resurfacing
on US 129 between Branford
and McAlpin later this year.
Officials say the county and
residents with solid mailboxes
could be held liable in the
event of an accident.
Public Works Director Jerry
Sikes and county attorney Hal
Airth began working with
Suwannee County Commis-
sioners last week to put an or-
dinance in place.
When an ordinance is final-
ized, residents not in compli-
ance may be issued a citation
for a code violation. Before it
is adopted the ordinance will
come before the public in a
hearing.
The ordinance will not ap-
ply to the city. Officials say
city mailboxes are not an is-
sue since curbs along the
roads provide a barrier and
motorists aren't traveling at
high speeds.


The new rules prohibit
skateboarders from riding
on city streets, sidewalks or
parking lots in commercially
zoned areas. It will not ap-


Racow will oversee all sta-
tions. All volunteer units will
now be substations under the
county and station chiefs will
become lieutenants.
Hatch said many volunteers
have been skipping training
sessions provided by the coun-
ty. But times are changing.
Racow will also enforce the
required training.
A few years ago state laws
required volunteer firefighters
to have a minimum of 160
hours of training to fight struc-
ture fires. Suwannee County
was expected to fully comply
with those regulations immedi-
ately.
Racow said that fewer than
10 of the 40 volunteers in the
county have the 160 hours of
required training. Eight more

in the city. However, those
who get a business owner's
permission to ride in park-
ing areas may do so between


have taken classes and are
working on certification.
Without the training, volun-
teers would only provide sup-
port services on the scene,
such as providing water or op-
erating hoses.
Hatch said volunteers will
not be allowed to participate
beyond their level of training.
"Them not being trained is
creating a liability for the
county," Hatch said.
"The training is there to pro-
tect them," he added.
' Paid firefighters employed
with Suwannee County
Fire/Rescue have at least a
firefighter 2 certification (400
hours) with EMT training. The
county prefers that they also
have paramedic training,
Racow said.


8 a.m. and sunset. The regu-
lations also apply to those
using roller skates, roller
blades and other similar de-
vices.
The ordinance states that
those riding in parking areas
will do so at their own risk
and may not endanger per-
sons or property.
Violators of the ordinance
will receive a written warn-
ing for the first offense. Af-
ter that they will be given a
$25 fine and surrender the
skateboard, which can only
be retrieved by a parent of
those under 18.
An ordinance was prompt-
ed by Live Oak resident
Charles Maloy, who asked
the city council to address
his concerns of skateboard-
ers loitering, disturbing the
peace and destroying prop-
erty in his neighborhood, he
said. City officials were also
concerned with skateboard-
ers being injured on city
property or striking patrons
in the business district.


Maloy asked the council
to draft an ordinance that
would cover his neighbor-
hood. This would call for a
citywide ordinance, which
council members voted
against. However, they did
promise Maloy that law en-
forcement would help solve
the problem.
* Law enforcement officials
said that a skateboarding or-
dinance is not necessary to
remedy some of Maloy's
problems. Disorderly con-
duct and criminal mischief
can be taken care of by fil-
ing a complaint with the po-
lice, said Live Oak Police
Department Captain Joe
Daly.
In the meantime, skate-
boarders await the construc-
tion of two local skate parks
which will be located at
Hale Park and the First Fed-
eral Sportsplex. The city
will receive grant money for
the project this year. Con-
struction is slated to begin
in a few months.

in brief
PLAY OF THE GAME
Suwannee's first score of
the season came on a perfect-
ly timed .10-yard pass from
David
Campbell to

Campbell
showed nice
touch and Hill
good concen-
tration as he
John Hill watched the
ball in from over his shoulder.
HONORABLE
MENTION
It was the best incomplete
pass in recent Bulldog history.
From the Suwannee 32,
Campbell rolled to his right
late in the second quarter and
ran for his life. Just before
Dunnellon defenders brought
him down, Campbell fired a
fastball down the sideline, and
nearly connected. The ball
was just out of reach of the
receiver but impossible to in-
tercept. Too bad it won't show
up in the stats.
INJURY REPORT
Senior running back Clay
Kinard was finally going to
get his shot this season, hav-
ing been -
picked to start
Friday after
seeing mini-
mal action in
2006.
He'll still
get his shot,
Clay Kinard but it may
have to wait a
couple of weeks. In the first
half Kinard "banged up" his
knee, in Coach Tommy
Chambers' words, and could
miss next week's game at
Hamilton as well as the Bull-
dogs' home opener Sept. 7
against East Gadsden.
Center Bryne Allen, an an-
chor of the offensive line, tore
some cartilage in his knee
during prac-
tice Aug. 20
and didn't
start Friday.
Hie's sched-
uled for
arthroscopic
surgery this
week and is Bryne Allen
expected to miss at least two
to three games.
WHAT DOES
IT MEAN?
What does Suwannee's 23-
16 loss in the Kickoff Classic
mean for the regular season?
Very little, probably.
As in any preseason con-
test, Suwannee coaches sub-
stituted liberally, trying play-
ers at new positions and in
unfamiliar settings.
Injuries played a role in the
outcome as well (see Injury
Report, above.)
Finally, Dunnellon is a fine
football team. The District 5-
3A Tigers, who went 7-3 last
year, have two Division 1
prospects on the roster, line-
backer/running backs
Lerentee McCray and Dustin
Young. McCray has commit-
ted to Miami and Young is
being courted by Florida At-
lantic University.
UP NEXT
Suwannee ended the 2006
season with a 29-15 win over
the Hamilton County Trojans
last November. The 'Dogs
hope to do it again in their
regular season opener Friday
in Jasper. See Friday's Demo-
crat for a preview of the
game.

Submitted,
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
will be making it easier for hunters,
bird watchers, stamp collectors and
others who want to conserve the na-
tion's wetlands to buy Federal Migra-
tory Bird Hunting and Conservation
Stamps, commonly known as Duck
Stamps.
Beginning Saturday, Sept. 1, FWC,
in partnership with U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service (USFWS), will
launch a new E-Duck Stamp program
to enable the agency to sell stamps
electronically through its automated
licensing system.
Customers will receive a Duck


on Sept. 1
Stamp privilege printed on their li-
cense that will be valid nationwide
for 45 days. They will then receive,
through the mail, a paper stamp by
Amplex Corporate, a company on
contract with the USFWS to fulfill
the paper stamp requirement. After
the 45 days, the E-Duck Stamp will
expire and purchasers must possess
the paper stamp to receive its full
benefit.
The E-Duck Stamp will fulfill the
license requirement for waterfowl
hunters and also allow free entry into
any national wildlife refuge in the
United States. The Federal Duck

"South Georgia has a rich tradition


Coast Guard announces


1,109,310 lives saved since 1790


Submitted

The U.S. Coast Guard an-
nounced during a ceremony
Aug. 4 in Grand Haven,
Mich., for its 217th birthday
that 1,109,310 lives have
been saved since its estab-
lishment in 1790.
Since 1924, the residents
of Grand Haven, Spring
Lake and Ferrysburg, Mich.,
have recognized the Coast
Guard, the smallest of the
armed forces, with an annual
celebration. The festivities
include Coast Guard cutter
tours, a children's parade, a
downtown carriival, nightly
entertainment, a parade, a
family picnic, and fireworks.
"When things are at their
worst, America's Coast
Guard is at its best," said
Homeland Security Secre-
tary Michael Chertoff.
"What began as a revenue
enforcement agency with a
fleet of ten cutters estab-
lished by Alexander Hamil-
ton more than 200 years ago
has evolved into the world's
premiere multi-mission,
maritime and military ser-
vice. It's fitting that we cele-
brate the Coast Guard's
217th birthday this Aug. 4 as
we recognize its brave men
and women for saving more
than 1 million lives over the
course of its long and storied
history."
"As America's lifesavers
and guardians of the seas,
Coast Guard men and
women commit themselves
every day to serving our na-


tion and its people with self-
less courage and unflinching
determination," said Adm.
Thad Allen, commandant of
the Coast Guard. "This year
we celebrate a remarkable
milestone in our history as
more than one million lives
have been saved by the Coast
Guard since 1790. What be-
gan as America's only life-
saving service charged with
the dangerous duty of saving
sailors from shipwrecks
along our coasts has evolved
into .a modern-day, multi-
mission Coast Guard that
demonstrates the same com-
mitment to saving lives that
it did more than 200 years
ago."
The Coast Guard is one of
America's five armed forces
and traces its founding to
Aug. 4, 1790, when the first
Congress authorized the con-
struction of ten vessels to en-
force tariff and trade laws,
prevent smuggling, and pro-
tect the collection of the fed-
eral revenue. Responsibili-
ties added over the years in-
cluded humanitarian duties
such as aiding mariners in
distress and the service re-
ceived its present name in
1915 when the Revenue Cut-
ter Service merged with the
US Life-Saving Service to
form a single maritime ser-
vice dedicated to saving life
at sea and enforcing the na-
tion's maritime laws.
"The saying 'A life lived
for others is a life worth
while' truly summarizes be-
ing a member of the Coast


Guard," said Capt. Jim
McPherson, a Coast Guard
spokesman. "For 217 years
our brave members rowed
through the surf to save lives
or flew through storms to
make daring rescues. Al-
though the technology has
advanced the common theme
through the years is the hero-
ism of Coast Guard women
and men."
The number of lives saved
was calculated by the Coast
Guard historian's office
through research of logs and
records from the Coast
Guard, the Revenue Cutter
Service, the US Life-Saving
Service, the Lighthouse Ser-
vice and other agencies that
eventually became the mod-
ern Coast Guard. In addition
to tallying the total number
of lives saved, the historian's
office has compiled a list of
the top 10 rescues in the
Coast Guard's history. The
list shows the breadth of the
Coast Guard's efforts to save
lives in peril on the seas for
over 217 years.
"While this top-10 list is
subjective, it certainly con-
veys the heroism of our peo-
ple conducting this vital mis-
sion," said Rear Adm. Mary
Landry, director of govern-
mental and public affairs.

cues. All imagery is in the

Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services
(FDACS) Commissioner Charles H. Bronson is
telling consumers to get all the details before
signing over their termite protection contract.
Recently, some pest control companies have
been offering "sign over" contracts where they
take over the protection and warranty contract
from another company.
Bronson wants to ensure consumers are
aware of this practice, referred to in the pest
control industry as a "take over warranty" or
"pick up warranty." A pest control business will
offer to take over a wood destroying organism
(WDO) contract or warranty originally issued
by another company, usually at a lower price as
an incentive for homeqwners to switch.' The
contracts most often cover subterranean ter-
mites.
Consumers should be aware that there is no
provision in state law for a company to "take
over" or "sign over" an existing contract. The
pest control company offering to "take over" an
existing warranty is actually issuing a new con-
tract warranty with new terms and conditions
under their company name. The property own-
er is usually encouraged to cancel their original
contract and continue their termite protection
with the new company. Switching contracts is
not contrary to the state pest control law or reg-
ulations. If the property owner elects to contin-
ue the original warranty in addition to the new
warranty, the new pest control company, by
law, must obtain written consent in letter form
that it is the property owner's desire to have a
second contract warranty for the same wood-
destroying organism.
"Protecting your home against termites is an
important part of home ownership in Florida,"
Bronson said. "A wood destroying organism
protection contract with a licensed pest control
company is the key to that protection. But


homeowners need to read the fine print and
know exactly what they are covered for and to
ask questions if a new company comes in of-
fering to take over or switch their contract."
The contract specifies what the company will
do to protect your home and whether they will
treat, re-treat, or repair any damage if termites
occur. Pest control companies are legally oblig-
ated to abide by the terms of the contract.
However, consumers should be fully aware
that the new contract in a "take over warranty"
is likely to have different terms and conditions
than the original contract, and should carefully
compare the new contract before signing it. In
addition, the new contract will most likely not
cover any damage or infestation that occurred
before it went into effect. Once the original
contract is ended, the original company will not
be liable for that damage or retreatment either.
The result can be that the consumer has no pro-
tection for existing damage or infestation when
a new contract is entered into.
Consumers should be thoughtful and cau-
tious about any change in the termite protection
of their homes. Consideration should be given
to the following:
* Is the new warranty coverage equal to or
greater than the existing coverage?
* Is any initial treatment to be rendered by the
new pest control company?
* How do the renewal terms and costs com-
pare between warranties?
* Is the new pest company in good standing
as to reputation and consumer satisfaction?
* Will the contract cover any hidden infesta-
tion or damage that occurred before the new
contract was signed?
FDACS, through its Bureau of Entomology
and Pest Control, stands ready to assist con-
sumers by providing information about the
"take over warranties." The Bureau can be con-
tacted at 850-921-4177. More information is
available at www.floridatermitehelp.org.

Bulldogs


Continued From Page 1B
on a failed field goal attempt
set Suwannee up at the Dun-
nellon 10, where quarterback
David Campbell floated a
beautiful pass to John Hill
for a 6-0 second quarter lead.
A 27-yard Austin O'Con-
nor field goal in the third
made it 9-0, and a Campbell
sneak from the two on the
first play of the fourth gave
the 'Dogs what looked like a
safe lead.
The Dunnellon offense,
held to 62 yards in the first
three quarters, began to stir at
that point. Suwannee's first
defensive lapse of the night
came three plays into the
Tigers' next drive, when
quarterback Andrew Stichter
sprinted 38 yards to the'
Suwannee 25. Justin Peacock
took it to the three, and star
running back Lerentee Mc-
Cray scored from the one.
The two-point conversion, on
a sneak by Stichter, made it
16-8 with 7:23 remaining.
The Tigers tied it on their
next possession. Josh Pea-
cock scored on a 61-yard first
down run, followed by anoth-
er two-point conversion, this
time a power move up the
middle by back Dustin
Young.
Minutes later the 'Dogs
were in trouble again. Enter
sophomore linebacker Bran-
don Clayton, who fell on a


fumble to kill a late threat at
the Suwannee 30.
In overtime the Tigers
scored on a Stichter pass to
D.J. Brown. Suwannee could-
n't answer and the final was
23-16.
There were plenty of bright'
spots for the Bulldogs,
though.
Campbell passed for 59
yards and a touchdown and
.ran for 47 more and another
score.
Hill caught four passes for
40 yards and a score.
Xavier Peny was unstop-
pable at times on the ground,
gaining 104 yards on nine
carries.
The defense carried the
load for much of the game,
though. Some highlights:
. After a pass interference
call gave the Tigers the ball
on the Suwannee 19 late in
the half, the Bulldog sec-
ondary tightened, forcing
three straight incompletions.
The half ended on a missed
Dunnellon field goal.
.On the Tigers' first drive of
the second half, lineman Jon
Snyder forced a fumble. De-
fensive end Octavious
Granville recovered, leading
to a Suwannee field goal.
Chambers also singled out
linebackers Justin Starling
and Wallace Smith, defen-
sive lineman Jon Snyder
and defensive back Jason
Cherry for recognition.

Interstate Cycle manager Cory Lee in from of new Kawasaki Ultra250X jet ski.


Interstate Cycles in Lake City is the new
franchise dealer for Kawasaki.
With the addition of the Kawasaki line of
motorcycles and atv's, Interstate Cycles be-
comes one of north Florida's largest dealers in
motorcycle franchises.
Kawasahi joins the existing products of
Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha carried by the
dealership.


One of the featured Kawasaki's will be the
Mule, a two-seater utility with a dump-bed.
Also, coming soon will be the all-new RSD
Teryxt,a sport-type side-by-side recreational
vehicle.
Interstate Cycles will carry a full line of
parts and accessories for the new Kasasaki
franchise.
Factory-trained mechanics and technicians


have been schooled in all phases of operra-
tional functions of the Kawasaki vehicles.
Promenant among the Kawasaki line of
products for this area will be the jet skies.
This is Interstate Cycles initial plunge into
the watercraft market.
The dealership will carry Kawasaki's all
new ZX Ninja bikes, Vulcon cruisers and the
two main lines of atv's: Prairtie and Brute


Force.
"We're expanding our line of products to
give north Florida a better variety of products
in one location," said manager Cory Lee.
Interstate Cycles plans the construction of a
new warehouse and remodeling of its show-
room, explained Lee.
Both projects should be completed by the
first-of-the-year, he added.

Hey Kids: Protect Your Eyes During Sports Play


The number of kids playing organized sports is on the rise and so to
is the number of sports-related injuries. What many players, parents
and coaches do not realize is that the majority of injuries occur during
practice and not during games, making it crucial that kids wear
protective equipment for practices and games alike. Proper protection
for these athletes should include not only helmets, knee and elbow
pads and mouth guards, but protective eyewear as well.
More than 600,000 eye injuries related to sports and recreation
occur each year. Of these injuries, 42,000 require a trip to the
Emergency Room, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission. Flying objects are just one of the hazards of sports. A
large number of injuries occur from finger pokes and jabs from arms
and elbows. Throw together a couple of overzealous players and a
potential collision could occur. Even sports that seem relatively
harmless can actually be harmful to the eyes.
But more than 90 percent of all eye injuries can be prevented with
the use of appropriate protective eyewear, says Prevent Blindness
America. And proper hygiene and vision care, such as yearly
examinations and proper cleaning of glasses and contact lenses can
ensure that kids protect one of their most valuable tools ... their
vision.
Today, protective eyewear is becoming commonplace for any kid
who picks up a ball, stiGk, racquet, or dives into sports play. In fact,
without having to worry about eye injuries, both players and parents
can focus more intently on game play and - of course - winning.
Whether a child is an after-school jock or a weekend warrior, here's
a listing of some of the popular seasonal sports activities that present
a risk for injury, which can become much safer with protective
eyewear.
Autumn
Soccer: Soccer is tremendously popular among today's boys and
girls, and chances are most households boast at least one soccer
player. Because soccer players are always moving, be sure to have all
eyewear fitted individually. Protective eyewear has straps that will
feature some sizing flexibility, so resist the urge to buy a larger size
that kids can "grow into." Re-evaluate sizing every year.
Football: A very high contact sport, eye injuries can occur but aren't
as common due to face protection offered by helmets. Still, eye
protection can be fitted under helmets, offering additional protection
against debris and potential finger pokes.
Winter
Basketball: Basketball is the leading cause of eye injury for players
ages 15 to 24. Research shows that 1 in 10 college basketball players
will suffer an eye injury each season. According to -the National
Society to Prevent Blindness, almost 7,000 injuries were found to be
related to playing basketball. Finger poking is one of the more
common basketball injuries nationwide. Sports protective eyewear,
however, can help hardwood heroes avoid the perils of eye injury.
- Spring '
Baseball/Softball: Baseball is the leading cause of eye injury in
players 14 and under. This ranks baseball among the highest sports
for eye injury risks. Players are contending with a high-speed
projectile (the ball), swinging bats and potential sun glare. That's a
recipe for eye injuries. Regular shades or other "street" eyewear
won't provide proper protection. Due to the potential velocity of a
baseball or softball, nothing can guarantee complete injury
protection, but sports protective eyewear can greatly lessen the risk of
serious injury. The lenses are made from polycarbonate, which are
impact-resistant and have inherent UV protection.


Soccer is just one of the many sports children enjoy that can be made safer
with sports eye protection.


Lacrosse: Men's and women's' lacrosse differ in regard to how much
physical contact is allowed, with the men's teams being more contact-heavy.
Still, some form of stick checking and blows from lacrosse balls make sports
eye protection a smart idea for players. The most common head/facial
injuries seen are contusions about the face and eye orbit, creating the typical
"black eye." This primarily occurs in women's games because of the lack of
a hard helmet. Therefore, sports eye protection is mandatory for all players.
Summer
Tennis and other racquet sports: In a Canadian study, racquet sports
accounted for 24.5 percent of all reported eye injuries and 8.8 percent of all
eyes blinded by sports. In a U.S. study, racquet sports were responsible for
40.3 percent of sports eye injuries seen in a private practice, and 23 percent
of all admissions for hyphema (bleeding inside of the eye) to the
Massachusetts Ear and Eye Infirmary. The high speed at which balls are
served or struck during these sports can make eye trauma common, even
though many people do not associate these sports with injury.
Shopping for Eye Protection
Liberty Sport provides a line of high-quality protective sports eyewear.
They are tested to withstand the ASTM F803 impact resistant standards for
racquetball, basketball, handball, squash, paddleball, soccer, and tennis when
fitted with the appropriate polycarbonate lenses. They're also the only
protective sports eyewear to receive the American Optometric Seal of
Acceptance. Additionally, almost all corrective lens prescriptions can be
incorporated into stylish sports protective eyewear. To learn more, visit
www.libertysport.com.

PORTABLE GENERATORS!

Many residents who lose power may turn to
emergency generators to ensure a continuous flow
of electricity to refrigerators, freezers, lights, fans
and other appliances. SVEC urges residents to
exercise extreme caution. While generators are a
convenience in keeping appliances running during
storm-related outages, they can also create hazards
for homeowners and electric utility workers.

When operating a generator:
* Always operate a generator in accordance with your house to receive power directly from a portable generator

Dear Classified Guys,
So far I've survived my recent
divorce without becoming bitter.
After springing it on me that she was
leaving, my wife took anything of
value from the house and moved a
few states away. Surprisingly, I man-
aged to keep a positive attitude.
However, there is still one asset hold-
ing us together, our house. With the
recent real estate market, it hasn't
sold as quickly as I hoped. Since we
have both relocated now, I took the
time to clean out the rest of the
house. The few pieces of remaining
furniture were junk and the closets
just had stuff neither of us wanted. I
thought this would help our situa-
tion. Yet after my-wife visited the
house, she called me to say that I
shouldn't have packed up what was
left. She says the house will never
sell empty. I'm wondering if
she may be right in this 4
case. Should I go unpack
the leftover furniture and
boxes of stuff or will this house ..
sell just as quick if it's empty?

Cash: Keeping a positive attitude
while experiencing a divorce is impor-
tant, so you're on the right track. It can
be even more difficult when the two


parties don't agree on things.
Carry: Divorce aside, a well-furnished
house is typically more appealing to
prospective buyers. The furniture helps
them to imagine what the rooms may
look like with their belongings.
Cash: However, people often have
too much furniture so removing some
can make small rooms look larger or
more spacious. The goal is to make a
house look full of life and inviting to
buyers.
Carry: Now if you and your ex-wife
took most of the good furniture and left
only remnants behind, then the house
may look lifeless anyway. A wobbly cof-
fee table and a torn chair won't make a


Uss,a;U.,

buyer feel welcome. In that case, you're
probably better off cleaning out the
house and making it look presentable.
Cash: If your home is completely
empty, then everything needs to be in
good shape. Nicks in the wall, cracks
in the ceiling, or missing trim suddenly
become noticeable when there is noth-
ing in the room. Take a little time to
finish those details.
Carry: Even though the inside of the
house may be empty, it's important to
keep the outside looking nice. Mow
the grass, collect the mail, and make the
outside look like it hasn't been neglect-
ed. A well-landscaped home will have
a much better chance to sell.

Welcome Home
Staging, it's not just for Broadway
shows. Staging a home for sale
involves refreshing the interior to give
potential buyers a great first impression.
Some research estimates that it can add
3% to 10% to the value and result in
selling it up to 32% faster. Although the
interior is important, you may want to
start at the front door. Buyers often
spend slightly over one minute at the
entrance while the showing agent gets
the key and unlocks the door. That's
estimated to be about 5% of the time a
buyer will spend at your home.
Two-isted
While it takes two people to get mar-
ried, it only takes one to get divorced.
And the process of getting one-is big
business. The work of marital law is
estimated to be a $28 billion dollar
industry. While couples may spend
years saving their money, it can quickly
disappear with a divorce. The average
divorce involving attorneys can cost a
couple between $15 and $20 thousand
dollars. For some that may be enough
incentive to try marriage counseling.

I Do
My girlfriend Beverly has been on
the hunt for "Mr. Right" for the past
several years. So it didn't come as a
surprise when we went to lunch and
she told me she was seeing a new guy.
As a real estate agent, she was
showing an apartment to a young cou-
ple when she happened to stumble into
the owner, a single guy, on his way
out. After a few minutes of small talk,
they made plans to go on a date and
have been dating ever since.
As we continued to eat lunch, she
pulled a picture of him from her purse.
"Beverly!" I exclaimed looking at
the photo."He has an earring. Do you
really think he's marriage material?"
"Absolutely," she replied. "It means
he's experienced at buying jewelry!"
(Thanks to Deborah N.)



This light & "airy" home
must be on farmland.

Literature program will read
their personal letters to au-
thors who inspired them.
Sponsored by the Library's
Center for the Book with sup-
port from Target, this reading
and writing promotion pro-
gram invites young readers in
grades 4-12 to write personal
letters to authors, past or pre-
sent, who have changed their
views of the world or of
themselves. Each year, win-
ners are selected at the state
and national levels. As the
project's corporate sponsor,
Target awards the six national
winners and their parents with
a trip to the National Book
Festival to share their win-
ning letters with the festival
audience. "It is inspiring to
see the number of young peo-
ple whose lives have been
positively affected by a par-
ticular author or book," said
Laysha Ward, vice president,
community relations, Target.
"Through its comprehensive
support of early childhood
reading, including the Letters
About Literature program and
the National Book Festival,
Target is helping to instill a
love of reading in kids as the
foundation for lifelong learn-
ing."
The Pavilion of the States,
sponsored by the Institute of
Museum and Library Services
(IMLS), will highlight read-
ing, literacy and library pro-
motion activities in all 50
states, the District of Colum-
bia and several American
trusts and territories. Repre-
sentatives from the states and
territories will welcome fami-
lies and children interested in
learning about writers and
reading programs nationwide.
IMLS representatives will
also be providing information
about its library initiatives, in-
cluding the Laura Bush 21st
Century Librarian Program to
recruit and educate the next
generation of librarians. The
Big Read programs in the
states, sponsored by IMLS
and the National Endowment
for the Arts, will be featured
in the pavilion.
In the popular Let's Read
America pavilion, there will
be a wide variety of fun-filled
reading promotion activities

sors for children.
The Library of Congress

of interactive family-centered
activities illustrating the depth
and breadth of the Library's
extraordinary collections
available online. Computers

children and adults to explore
the Library's acclaimed Web

tion about conserving pho-

students will demonstrate
how to interview a veteran.
In addition to planning a
range of activities for this
year's festival on the National

variety of ways for people
around the country to partici-
pate in the event online. This
summer, the Library will
launch the National Book

bring the festival into li-
braries, schools and homes
across the country. The
Toolkit will feature informa-
tion about National Book
Festival authors who write
for children and teens, pod-
casts of their readings and
teaching tools and activities
for kids. This interactive re-
source also shows educators,
parents and children how .
they can host their own book
festivals.
Available again this year
will be downloadable pod-
casts of interviews,with pop-
ular participating authors.
The Library will also present
same-day coverage of the
morning presentations on its
Web site. All of the authors'
presentations will be avail-
able on the Library's site the
week following the festival.
In addition to the same-day
webcasts, the Library will
again collaborate with Book
TV on C-SPAN2 to televise
events taking place at the fes-
tival. The C-SPAN2 Book TV
Bus, a mobile television stu-
dio with a multimedia
demonstration center for the
public, will also be on the
National Mall.
Leading up to the festival,
washingtonpost.com will host
a series of online chats with
authors appearing at the Na-
tional Book Festival. These
text-based discussions can be
viewed daily, starting on
Monday, Sept. 24, on the site
at www.washingtonpost.com.
The schedule of chats and au-
thors' names will be posted on
the site and the Library's site
at www.loc.gov/bookfest. Par-
ticipants can submit questions
in advance or during the live
discussion. Authors' responses
will be posted while the pro-
gram is airing or at a later
date on washingtonpost.com's
online discussion archives.
Washington Post Radio will
also be interviewing authors
prior to the festival day.
The artist for this year's fes-
tival is Mercer Mayer, whose
work brings a magical quality
to the 2007 National Book
Festival poster. Mayer will be
among the authors and illus-
trators speaking in the Chil-
dren's Pavilion. Posters fea-
turing his digital painting will
be available free of charge at
the festival.
The Junior League of
Washington will again have
hundreds of volunteers to
help with the National Book
Festival.

ipating authors, illustrators

Trust partners with Alachua County on Barr Hammock Preserve


Submitted
The Florida Department of
Community Affairs recently
presented a $6.1-million
check to help Alachua Coun-
ty acquire the Barr Hammock
Preserve, a project that will
protect a variety of natural
and cultural resources and
provide educational and
recreational opportunities.
The county partnered with
Florida Communities Trust
(FCT) to purchase the 2,303-
acre property. Barr Hammock
will be a part of the County's
"Emerald Necklace" initia-
tive, a protected network of
trails, greenways and open
spaces that includes several
projects previously acquired


in partnership with FCT.
"Alachua County has con-
sistently demonstrated an
outstanding commitment to
providing greenspace and
recreational opportunities for
its residents and visitors,"
said Community Affairs Sec-
retary Tom Pelham, who
serves as chairman of the
FCT Governing Board. "I am
pleased that Florida Commu-
nities Trust could once again
assist the county in its efforts
to preserve and protect some
of its precious cultural and
natural resources."
The Barr Hammock Pre-
serve is located in south cen-
tral Alachua County and is
adjacent to Paynes Prairie


State Preserve..The property
includes several high-quality
natural communities, and the
acquisition project will pre-
serve sensitive wetland areas,
wildlife habitat and several
significant archaeological
sites. Recreational amenities
on the property eventually
will include hiking trails,
wildlife observation plat-
forms and interpretive ex-
hibits.
Barr Hammock is the most
recent project acquired by
Alachua County Forever, the
county's land conservation
program designed to acquire
and protect environmentally
sensitive lands. Alachua
County provided a local


match of almost $4.1 million
for the acquisition, bringing
the total project cost to more
than $10 million.
Administered by the De-
partment of Community Af-
fairs, Florida Communities
Trust is a state land acquisi-
tion grant program that has
provided more than $650 mil-
lion to local communities to
preserve parks and recre-
ational space. DCA helps
Florida's communities meet
the challenges of growth, re-
duce the effects of disasters
and invest in the community.

Surfing sans sight: Blind teens learn to hang ten


By Nate Rice
CNHI News Service
GLOUCESTER, Mass. - Imagine living
your life in complete darkness - never
being able to see a sunrise or sunset. Now
imagine taking a leap of faith, and trying
to stand up on a surfboard and ride a wave
in that world of darkness. Impossible? Not
quite. Instructors from Brickhouse
Boards, the Bass Avenue surf shop, took
seven blind teenagers from the Newton-
based Carroll Center for the Blind to
Good Harbor Beach and taught them how
to surf on Sunday. By the end of the day,
all seven teens, three with complete visual
impairment and four with partial visual
impairment, were riding the waves. _"It
was just literally the greatest experience
of my life," said Jamie Hosker, co-owner
of Brickhouse Boards and surfing
instructor. "I cannot see topping that
night. It was, and probably will be, my
greatest surfing moment." _Hosker, who,
has surfed on some of the meanest breaks
in the world, including the North Shore of
Hawaii, was humbled by the teens'
determination. _"Somehow they'd find the
strength and courage to stay up," Hosker'
said. "Their success was based solely on
their courage. It's proving to them that
there's nothing they can't do." _At least
two instructors were assigned to every
teen. One instructor, standing in waist-to-
shoulder-deep water, helped the teen stand
up on the surfboard, while the teen held
onto the instructor's shoulders, before
being launched into the wave. The other
instructor, standing closer to shore, was
the catcher, making sure that the wipeout
was as smooth as possible. _"I was
humbled by their faith in me to push them
safely into a wave and the intestinal
fortitude they displayed by not jumping
off at the first sign of trouble," Hosker
said. "We were really successful because
of our knowledge - it was really
gratifying." Shouts of joy could be heard
from the beach, each instructor voicing
their excitement from the salt water of a
successful ride by their surfer.
-"Everything went well for these kids,"
Hosker said. "They were just inspiring."
_Hosker was nervous and lost sleep over
the event the night before. The main
question he had resonating in his head:
"How exactly do you teach a blind kid
how to surf?" _"I couldn't imagine what
-someone's first wave would be like, going
over the crest of a wave into darkness,"
said Hosker. "And if I couldn't imagine
what it would be like, how was I supposed


to give instructions on how to survive
such an even?." _At 3 p.m., Hosker and
Brickhouse instructors gave a hands-on
instruction about the waves, safety
and how to ride a wave on dry
land, before the teens took the
plunge into the cool Atlantic
Ocean. By 5 p.m., the teens were
hanging ten. _"Their sense of
balance was amazing," Hosker
said. "Their thought process was
really sharp." _They loved surfing
so much it was hard to get them out
of the water before sunset, Hosker
said. _The surfboards the teens used
were "soft boards," surfboards that
are about 9 feet long, 2 feet wide,
and have a soft surface to lie on. The
surfboards are made by Global Surf
Industries, the world's largest
surfboard producer. Hosker e-mailed
pictures and the story of the experience
with the blind teens to a representative
from the company. By the end of the
day, the pictures and story had circulated
throughout the entire company. The CEO
of the company saw the pictures and read
about the event, and personally e-mailed
Hosker about the amazing experience.-
"This event was a thrilling experience for
all seven Carroll Teens students, as %tell
as the organizers and volunteers who
donated their time and resources to make
it such a memorable day," said
Dr. Karen Ross, vice president of
educational services at the
Carroll Center for the Blind, in a
press release. "We're already
looking forward to doing it again
next summer. This kind of activity
exemplifies the spirit, confidence
and motivation we try to instill in
our students through such Carroll
Teens programs. "_Hosker always
believed that big-wave surfers were
the bravest people in the sport, but,
after this experience, has completely
changed his view._ "Prior to this
experience, I used to think that the
men who ride mountains (huge wax es i.
the (big-wave surfers) Laird Hamilton
and Jaws crew, were the pinnacle, of
bravery in our sport," said Hosker. "I
couldn't have been more mistaken. All it
took was one 14-year-old, visually-
impaired young woman, to demons ate
to me what true bravery is. And no'\ I
see."

Governor Crist creates

Governor's Commission

on Disabilities
19-member commission

replaces ADA Working Group


Submitted
Governor Charlie Crist re-
cently, on the 17th Anniver-
sary of the Americans with
Disabilities Act (ADA),
signed Executive Order 07-
148, creating the Governor's
Commission on Disabilities..
The commission will advance
public policy and work with
state agencies and organiza-
tions on behalf of Floridians
with disabilities. The Gover-
nor appointed Lance Block to
serve as chairman.
"This commission provides
a forum for Florida's disabili-
ties community to develop and
voice unified concerns and
recommendations," said Crist.
"The commission will repre-
sent Florida's disabilities com-
munity as a whole, ensuring
that all Floridians have equal
access to education and em-
ployment, information regard-
ing resources and services,
and opportunities to fully par-
ticipate in all aspects of life."
The commission will con-
sist of 19 members appointed
by the Governor. Members
will represent a broad spec-
trum of interests within the
disabilities community with
the goal of assisting the dis-
abilities community in speak-
ing with one voice when ad-
dressing , state
government. The executive or-
der also requires each state
agency under the leadership of
Governor Crist appoint a "dis-
ability champion" that will
serve as. a liaison between the
agency, the commission and
the disabilities community.
The commission will part-
ner with the Statewide Advo-
cac\ Council ihich will serve
as .a cleannghouse of disabilT'E
ty resources while providing
guidance and education to
state agencies regarding the
implementation of the ADA,
functions previously per-
formed by the ADA Working
Group, which expired July 25
under the tarms of a prior ex-
ecutive order.
"I would like to thafik
Chairman Linda Reubens and
Rep. Ken Littlefield for their.
leadership on the Statewide
Advocacy Council," said
Crist. "I am confident they
will work with this new com-
mission to improve existing
disabilities-related services,
programs and assistance and
to implement new initiatives."
Governor Crist recently ap-


pointed Lance Block to serve
as chairman of the commis-
sion. Lance is a sixth genera-
tion Floridian and a lifelong
advocate for rights of the de-
velopmentally disabled. Block
has served the disabilities
community as a trustee for the
Advocacy Center for Persons
with Disabilities, as a member
of the board of the Florida As-
sociation for Rehabilitative
Services, as president of the
Arc of Palm Beach County,
and as founding chairman of
the Potentials School, a char-
ter school for children with
disabilities. Block earned a
Bachelor of Arts degree and a
Juris Doctor from Florida
State University.
' "Lance has a long career in
advocating and defending
Floridians with disabilities,"
said Crist. "I am honored he
has agreed to serve the people
of our state in this important
position."
Additional appointments to
the Commission on Disabili-
ties will be made at a later
date. Applications are avail-
able through the Governor
Crist's .Appointments Office
