Notes

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.

Drew Land won
first place in the
engineering division
for grades 7, 8 and 9
at the Agriscience
Fair during the FFA
state,conventionin
Orlando recently. His
project,
"Autonomous Rid-A-
Week Agbot,"
included designing,'
building and
programming a
small-scale robotic
vehicle that would
follow rows of a
peanut crop while
Pinpointing weeds
and directly applying
herbicide. The idea
for such a project
began during his
research on robotics
in agriculture. Being
on a robotics team for
a couple of years and
also realizing the
need for new
technology in
agriculture, led Land
to begin formulating
his project. Land's
family has farmed the
same land for five
generations and he
realizes the need for
preserving our,
agriculture e industry.
Land, 13, has been
in FFA for three
years. With this state
level achievement, he
will compete at the
National FFA
Convention in
Indianapolis, Ind. in
October.

Treatments for Swimmer's Itch
Swimmer's itch may develop in response to certain parasites found in
freshwater lakes and ponds. The medical term for this is also known as
cercarial dermatitis. The parasites usually live on water wildlife, such
as freshwater snails and ducks. When the water is calm and the day is
hot and sunny, these parasites may be released into the water, and
subsequently can burrow into the skin of swimmers..The parasites then
die and the result is an itchy rash. The affected area may become red,
itchy, and raised. Exposed areas of the skin while swimming are the
most commonly affected areas.
Although the rash typically resolves in several days without
treatment, the itching may be alleviated with over-the-counter
medications or medications available with a prescription.
Antihistamines available without a prescription, such as
diphenhydramine (Benadryl) and cetirizine (Zyrtec), as well as anti-
itch creams containing calamine lotion may be useful in providing itch
relief. Topical corticosteroid creams also may be applied to the
affected area. For severe itching, prescription strength creams, such as
fluocinonide (Lidex), may be prescribed. Nondrug treatment options
include soaking in a bath of Epsom salts or oatmeal, or making a paste
of baking soda and water to apply to the affected area. 457698.F

A celebration



of a life

By Jinny Wilson .- -
It's not a funeral these
days, it is a celebration of
a life and that is a change
for the better.
When the sorrowing
family has lived in our .
hometown for
generations, the gathering
of family and friends is a j
beautiful thing to be part
of. Ladies turn to their
kitchens and make I
casseroles and cakes so
that the bereaved won't
have to worry about meals
for weeks (maybe months)
to come. Family and
friends come themselves, grateful for time shared with
the beloved who will be sorely missed. These people


know a lot about each other. They have lived through
good times and bad years right here in Wellborn.
Life's vicissitudes have been shared, mistakes made,
and forgiveness granted, most generally. They still
love each other, down deep, and are there for each
other. Joys and disappointments, held in common over
a lifetime, have given depth and accuracy to calling a
funeral, a celebration. Love flows freely. Of course it
is all about God's love for the deceased and for each
one of us in the first place.
This month Mt. Beulah Baptist sanctuary hosted the
celebration for Maudell Stansel. God's love was a
tangible experience, again, to be appreciated in
Wellborn Methodist sanctuary for Jack Gaylard's
celebration.
Thank you was the theme of the Wellborn
Community Association Dinner meeting and
celebration last Tuesday. Sponsors and workers know
that without each other the Great Blueberry Festival of
2008 would not have happened. A combination of gifts
and talents and graces came together in amazing
teamwork, appreciated by everyone in Wellborn, so it
was time to hand out awards and plaques and sincere
thanks all around.
When I phoned Goldie Marie Fralick to check on
time and place for her parents' 50th wedding
anniversary party, I learned that she herself was to be
honored Friday evening at the nurse graduation
ceremony. Goldie Marie is a school nurse and
honoring her is just right. She is an above and beyond
sort of person in all she does. I am grateful to prayer
partner with her every Tuesday at 6:45 A.M. when
school is in session and 7:30 a.m. during summer


Joys and disappointments, held in

vacation. Prayers are offered at God's altar in
Wellborn Methodist at noon e- . y Tuesday too. Fred
and Goldie's anniversary party is at the Masonic Lodge
from 3-5 p.m., July 26. Both the prayer time and the
50th are open invitations to all Wellborn News readers.
Bob Arnold is everybody's friend when we make our
dumpster run. He recognizes more of the Wellborn
family of neighbors than anyone else can. Iva Carlton,
Wellborn postmistress, might know more of us by
name, but Bob knows our faces and our trash disposal
life styles. Bob's working years included government
office work and some years with Chrysler. Bob retired
three times and is currently a Suwannee County
employee in charge of the Wellborn site. Bob Arnold
makes our household trash disposal a happy time.
Thank you, Bob.
One more Thank You: If you make

Wilson thanks you. She also appreciates suggestions,
photos, videos, and items @ jinjack@alltel.net.

OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat

In their own

words -

Part two
Our View this week is di-
rected toward local office-
seekers, but the topic will be
of interest to all - or should
be. Soon the Democrat will
ask every man or woman
seeking local political office
to explain his or her views on
topics relevant to the office
s9gght. As we discussed mn an
earlier installment of Our
View, school-related candi-
dates may be asked about
vouchers and county commis-
sion candidates about county-
wide voting, among other
topics.
Our inquiries will come in
the form of detailed question-
naires, mailed to each candi-
date's address of record, as
supplied by the supervisor of
elections. Candidates will
have a week to complete and
return the questionnaires to
US.
This isn't a pop quiz, but a
take-home exam. The best
candidates aren't necessarily
those quickest on the draw,
but those willing to study a
question and deliberate with
care. All we ask is that the
candidates do their own
work. Don't get a ringer to
write for you, candidates.
We'll begin mailing ques-
.tionnaires next week, and
they'll be published in the
Democrat up until the Aug.
26 primary.

Questionnaires will be
mailed to candidates in the
following races (candidates in
uncontested races are not in-
cluded):
State attorney
Circuit judge (Group 4)
Sheriff

OPINION


Black education


"Hard Times at Douglass High," is an
HBO documentary that aired last June.
It captured much of the 2004-2005
school year at.Baltimore's predominant- .
ly black Frederick Douglass High
School. The tragedy is that what is seen
in the documentary is typical of most
predominantly black urban schools.
Douglass' students are four to five
years below grade level. Most of its ,
ninth-graders read at the third-, fourth- . BY WALTI
or fifth-grade levels. In 2006, only 24
percent of its students tested proficient .
in reading, in math just 11 percent, and that's an improvement
over previous years. Only one student managed to score above
1,000 on the SAT and another student scored 440 out of 1,600.
You get 400 points for just writing in your name. Out of its 1,100
students, 200 to 300 are absent each day. Many of those who do
show up don't do so on time; they roam the hallways and leave
the school during the day. Only one-half of the school's 500 in-
coming freshmen ninth-graders return for their sophomore year
and far fewer remain for graduation
Sixty-six percent of the teachers are uncertified. Even if there
were no certified teacher shortage, I doubt :whether many teach-
ers with attractive alternatives would want ito teach at the school.
Douglass High School is not a place for teachers with high ex-
pectations for their students. English teacher Mr. McDermott re-
signed in the middle of the school year sayng, "Teaching be-
comes secondary, and discipline is the main thing that goes on. I
* don't feel like I'm making a difference, anymore."
Cameras followed then-principal Isabelle Grant on her visit to
the home of a chronically absent student. The student who reads
at the fifth- or sixth-grade level is promised that if she attends
school regularly she'll be promoted to the 11th grade. It is impos-
sible to eliminate such a reading deficit in a, semester. Teachers
are pressured into passing failing students. 'The documentary
showed that within a few days of graduation time the school
went from having 138 eligible graduates to 200. Promoting and
graduating students who haven't made the grade is nothing short
of academic fraud.,
Douglass High School teachers and staff appeared to be con-
cerned and caring people, but the poor quality educational out-

comes demonstrate that concern and
caring is not enough. The virtually
empty classrooms, filmed pn back-to-
school night, suggested little parental
interest in their children's education.
School day behavior demonstrated little
student interest. Some students spent
class time laughing, joking and tussling
with one another. Others had their
heads lying on their desks or appeared
uninterested in the teacher's discussion.
Many of those engaged in student-


teacher exchange on academic topics
showed very limited reasoning ability.
Frederick Douglass was founded in 1883 as the Colored High
and Training School before it was renamed. It is one of the na-
tion's oldest historically black high schools. It was a draw for
Baltimore's brightest black students. Success stories among its
alumni include Thurgood Marshall, Cab Calloway, as well as
several judges, congressmen and civil riglats leaders. I guarantee
you that if Douglass High student test scores of that earlier era
were available, they wouldn't show today's achievement gap.
Also, a 1940s or '50s Douglass High graduate would find no
comparison between student behavior during their school years
and that shown in the documentary.
, Politicians and the teaching establishment say more money,
smaller classes and newer buildings are necessary for black acad-
emic excellence. At Frederick Douglass' founding, it didn't have
the resources available today. If blacks can achieve at a time
when there was far greater poverty, gross discrimination and few-
er opportunities, what says blacks cannot achieve today?
Whether we want to own .up to it or not, the welfare state has:
:done what Jim Crow, gross discrimination and poverty could not
have done. It has contributed to the breakdown of the black fami-
ly structure and has helped establish a set of values alien to tradi-
tiohal values of high moral standards, hard work and achieve-
ment.

OPINION

It's a start, but small businesses need to hear more


When Senator John McCain delivered
the keynote address at the National Fed-
eration of Independent Business 2008
National Small Business Summit last
month, he did much more than speak to
several hundred interested small busi-
ness owners. He pushed the concerns of
a significant voting bloc to the forefront
of the presidential campaigns. In fact,
both Sens. McCain and Barack Obama
have spent much time specifically ad-
dressing the No. 1 issue among small
businesses - healthcare. And it's about
time.
Recognizing that healthcare costs
have become unmanageable for many
entrepreneurs, Sen. McCain said, if
elected, his administration would intro-
duce healthcare reform that would pro-
vide hardworking Americans more op-
tions and expand portability of coverage.
Sen. Obama, who was invited to
speak at the summit but did not attend,
responded to Sen. McCain's remarks by
reiterating that small businesses need
more options to access quality, afford-
able healthcare coverage. We also know
both candidates recognize that imple-
menting health information technology
and addressing an inequitable tax struc-
ture should play a part in any compre-
hensive reform package.
Over the past few weeks, it's been en-
couraging to see the candidates discuss


The Voice

of Small
Business


Ml By Todd Stottlemyer
tlbe issues facing the small business, es-
p~ cially the rising cost of healthcare.
B ut they - and all of our country's lead-
er s - must realize that entrepreneurs de-
se rve more than just discussions. Be-
cause the truth is, these job creators,
those on the front lines of the healthcare
crisis, are the voters who will be elect-
ing the next president, 'and they are de-
ma nding the next administration and
Co ngress implement real change that
makes healthcare more affordable for
wo] rking Americans.
According to a recent NFIB survey,
81 percent of small business owners and
52 percent of employees do not feel the
presidential candidates are adequately
add dressing issues that are important to
then, specifically healthcare. In fact,
nearly three-quarters of those polled say
fixing healthcare should be a top priority
for ithe next president, and nearly 80 per-


cent agree that "it is important to me to
vote for a presidential candidate whose
healthcare plan makes sense for small
business."
A similar survey showed that the
small business community comprised 43
percent of U.S. registered voters and
nearly 32 percent of the electorate on
Super Tuesday. These numbers prove
that small business is a powerful, moti-
vated group in a position to demand sub-
stantial solutions to the healthcare crisis
from their candidates.
Both candidates are focused on re-
forming our ailing healthcare system and
have begun to recognize that small busi-
ness must be considered in any proposed
legislation. The National Small Business
Summit may have ended, but small busi-
ness' commitment to achieving quality,
affordable healthcare has not.
We're at the beginning of long and
productive discussions with both candi-
dates to ensure the needs of small busi-
nesses remain at the forefront of the
healthcare debate. Because we know
that solutions to America's healthcare
crisis must start with small businesses,
the backbone of the U.S. economy.
When healthcare is fixed for small busi-
ness, it will be fixed for America.
Todd Stottlemyer is president and
CEO of the National Federation of Inde-
pendent Business in Washington, D.C.

Q: What's the difference between plaque
and tartar?

It is a colorless, sticky film that builds up
on the teeth. Plaque that's allowed to stay
in the mouth over time will combine with
the minerals in your saliva to form tarter,
which is also called calculus, a term
derived from the Latin for "small pebbles."
Tarter is a hard deposit on the teeth that
can be removed only at the dentist's
office. Plaque is alive with bacteria. When
you. eat, the bacteria transforms the starch


and sugar in food to acids that eat away
your teeth's enamel. That's the process
that begins decay. This is why brushing
and flossing after every meal are so
important.
The technique used to remove
accumulated tarter, or calculus, is called
scaling. Your dentist or hygienist will use a
hand-held Instrument shaped like a
curved spoon, a sickle, a hoe or a file. The
person doing the scaling will gently insert
the instrument beneath the gum, press it
firmly against the tooth and pull toward the
crown to remove the hardened plaque.
Talk with your dentist about ways to
prevent the buildup of damaging plaque
and tartar.

GARDENING TIPS:


From the Live Oak Garden Club


Q. Why do the tomatoes in my garden start cracking this time of year?

A. When tomatoes receive irregular watering, the inside of the tomato v ill
plump up faster than the outside. causing the outer skin of the tomato to split or
crack. Tomatoes that crack are edible: they just % ill not keep as long. Make sure
you give your tomatoes regular watering g een though it rains. Mulching around the
tomato plants will also help keep moisture levels e\en. Next time you plant
tomatoes, look for varieties that are resistant to cracking. Next season try some
heirloom varieties of the beefsteak variety: many of these varieties are less
susceptible to cracking.
I I-


Q. When is the best time to prune a crape
myrtle and how, far back can I safely top my
crape myrtle?

A. Crape myrtles generally require little
pruning. The best w ay to grow a crape myrtle is
to let 3-5 trunks come up and then in future years
do little pruning, except to remove branches too
close to the ground and any rool shoots that come
up from the ground. If you %w ant to cut the old
seedpods off right where they come off the main
trunk, this is fine but not necessary) (this can help
promote recurrent blooming). You will get a
much nicer looking tree with many more flowers
if you let \ our crape myrtle become the small
tree it is meant to be, and not commit "crape
murder" by chopping off the top. If pruning is
necessary to improve plant shape or form, prune
anytime after the leaves have fallen. The plants
are easy to prune at this time because you can see
the structure of the tree. Pruning when the plant
is dormant also will not interfere with flower bud
formation since they flower on new growth.

Q. What is this I hear about Epsom salts? Can I use
Epsom salts on other plants besides roses?

A. While researchers have never been terribly
impressed with the effects of Epsom salts on plants, many
gardeners disagree. This is an age-old, affordable gardening
tip that has been going on for generations. Now that
gardeners are more and more going back to basics and trying
to avoid putting toxins into the soil, the use of Epsom salts
has brought renewed interest. While Epsom salts are not
going to cure an extreme magnesium deficiency, the soil in
our area is known to be deficient in this mineral. Tomatoes,
peppers and roses seem to be the three plants that benefit the
most from applications of Epsom salts.
For roses, simply scratch about one-half cup into soil at
the base of the bush and water well or dissolve one-half cup
of the salts in water and use to water the rose bush. Do this
in the spring, just as the buds are beginning to open. For
ongoing rose care, mix 1 T of Epsom salts per gallon of
water and apply as a spray. You may need several gallons of
water for larger rose bushes and climbers.
Tomatoes and peppers may show signs of magnesium
deficiency late in the season, when their leaves begin to
yellow between the leaf veins and fruit production.
decreases. Whether you will get more and/or larger fruits
will depend on many things in addition to using Epsom salts,
but using them does seem to have some benefit. Mix in 1 T
of Epsom salts into the soil at the bottom of the planting hole,
when setting out transplants or mix the 1 T in a gallon of
water and water the seedlings. Then, you can follow-up with
a spray of 1 T per gallon of water when the plants start to
flower and again when the young fruits start to form.
Some local gardeners have reported success in using
Epsom salts on trees, lawns, evergreens and azaleas. Don't
worry about being exact as to when you apply Epsom salts;
just do not error on the side of too much: About 1 T of salts
per gallon of water is plenty. Some gardeners like to use
Epsom salts only at planting time while others apply every
month or so. Some gardeners use Epsom salts when they
remember or have the time to do so. Experiment by applying
Epsom salts on some of your plants comparing the treated
plants to the untreated plants. This may make a good science
project for a student.

Q. When is it the best time to plant shrubs and trees?

A. Definitel. in the fall. Planting trees in
October/November gives the root system of the plant time
to develop before it has to deal w ith giving off new growth
and flowers in the spring. January is the best month to
plant deciduous fruit and nut trees such as apples, peaches.
nectarines, plums. pears. figs, pecans, persimmons,
chestnuts, may haws and pawpaws.

community that has been so
good to me," he said.
"As part of county. gov-
ernment, the clerk's office
performs a wide range of
duties that impacts people's
lives every day and, as your
clerk, I have a great oppor-
tunity to help others. Not ,
only the people needing the
official services at the
clerk's office, but also help-
ing local organizations raise
much-needed funds for our
citizens who need special
attention. That's the real
satisfaction of public ser-
vices."
As clerk of the circuit
court, Dasher serves as the
clerk of both the circuit and
county courts, helping peo-
ple gain access to the courts
while maintaining the
courts' records and collect-'
ing and disbursing court


fines and fees. In addition,
the Constitution of Florida
specifies that he serve as
the clerk of the board of
county commissioners,
county auditor, recorder
and custodian of all county
funds. As the chief finan-
cial officer for the county,
Dasher is responsiblefor
the safekeeping of the
county's revenues and
watching over its expendi-
tures.
In an effort to better
communicate the county's
financial picture to its peo-
ple, he began preparation bf
a Citizens Annual Financial
Report in 2004 that in-
cludes all county funds and
fund types in an under-
standable manner.
Dasher and his staff have
been busy during his pre-
sent term, implementing the
voter-approyed revision to
Article V of the state con-
stitution regarding state
court funding. Today, the
clerk's office is meeting the
legislature's intent to self-
fund a majority of the
clerk's office expenses, as


well as contributing to
Florida's court system with
collected court fees, fines,
charges and costs. In addi-
tion, the 2007 audit shows
full compliance with all
state mandates.
The clerk's office also
met another legislative re-
quirement: to provide elec-
tronic retrieval of official
records documents in its
recording department.
More than 500,000 pages
of documents from 1978 to
2002 were electronically
imaged, not only to meet
the Jan. 1, 2006 statutory
deadline, but beating that
deadline by more than three
months, while also provid-
ing the public with greater
access to the county's pub-
lic records.
As guardian of the public
records, Dasher must assure
that all Suwannee County's
records, those from 1859 to
the present, are kept safely
where the public may view
them, make them more ac-
cessible and help preserve
the county's rich history.
Over the past four years,


work continued in making
other improvements to
sound management and the
utilization of new technolo-
gies to expand the office's
services and convenience to
the public. The Suwannee
County Clerk's Office is the
only one in the state of
Florida that provides infor-
mation technology services
to the board of county com-
missioners' administrative
offices, to fire and EMS, to
the airport, as well as the
sheriff office.
The clerk's office is also
finding more ways to satis-
fy our customers "online"
rather than "in-line." Last
October, Dasher imple-
mented a new, state-of-the-
art recording system that
makes newly-recorded doc-
uments available on-line in
less than 24 hours of the
time the original documents
are recorded. Through our
Web site,
www.suwclerk.org, the
public, judiciary and state
and local agencies can gain
access to and order public
records, pay traffic fines or


child support.
Dasher and his wife, Gar-
net, who was born and
raised here, have one
daughter and one son. A
graduate of Florida College
(AA) and of Lake City
Community College (AS),
Dasher attended the Uni-
versity of Florida. He owns
and operates his own farm.
He has fulfilled the require-
ments for certification by
the Florida Supreme Court
and is recognized as a Cer-
tified Clerk of the Circuit
Court. Dasher is a member
of the Church of Christ.
In giving back to the
community that has been so
good to him and his family,
Dasher has committed to
serving by participating in
various community pro-
jects, and is an avid sup-
porter of our young people
through their various orga-
nizations and teams.
"I am reminded each day,
as I come to work and
climb the steps of our cour-
thouse, of what a rare privi-
lege it is to serve as Suwan-
nee County's clerk of the


circuit court," Dasher re-
marked. "Again, I want to
thank the people of Suwan-
nee County for honoring
me with this public trust."
"I have been blessed
with a fine, experienced,
professional, well-trained
and courteous staff, and am
thankful and appreciative
of their important role in
serving the people's inter-
ests in a wide range of ac-
tivities," Dasher continued.
"Our job, continues to be a
learning experience, and
with your help, your ideas
and your suggestions, we
will continue to move our
office forward, offering the
commitment, the leader-
ship, the energy and the
knowledge for this office
to adapt to the growing
needs of our county and
the ever-changing duties
prescribed by the State of
Florida. My door has been
and is always open and ac-
cessible. I want and need
your input." Please call me
at 386-364-8806 or email

Getting into the swim of things
Submitted
As the 2008-2009 Suwannee High School swim season
approaches, coach Kathy Wood says she's looking forward to
a great season. After graduating only five swimmers in 2008,
the Bulldogs should come off the blocks strong. Returning
seniors include Shelby Brothers, Phillip Hill, Hali Brannon,
Gini Pfender, Emilie Farris and Callie Hancock. Along
with the help of the underclassmen, both teams should post a
banner year of SHS swimming.
. Anyone interested in becoming a part of this year's team
should go by the Billy Jernigan Pool Facility, 1301 Walker
Ave. SW, Live Oak, meet with Wood and pick up an
information packet as soon as possible. The team will get
started Monday, Aug. 11. The team will hold several
fundraisers including selling banners to hang at the pool
during the high school season. Please help support this great
team of outstanding student athletes by purchasing a banner
or participating in one of this season's fundraisers. Watch for
follow-up articles as their season begins in early September.

Sportabout

By Tom Daniels

Norman finished in third
place in what was probably
the most difficult major
golf tournament played in
modern times. Had Tiger
played, use a multiplier of
two.
Old guy Brett Favre
wants back. Everyday
there seems to be a blurb
-about the former Falcon.
Don't the Falcons wish
they had kept in. Brett is
38 years old and could
well do better than 50
percent of the starting QBs
in today's NFL. The
Packers have turned the

Dolphin, isn't that old but
he will be getting a new
life in Washington for the
Redskins.
Now these guys are old
but Satchel Paige pitched
in 1965 at the alleged age
of 59. He may have been
older. Babe Ruth hit three
home runs at the age of 40.
,My personal favorite is
Minnie Minoso. Real name
Saturnino Orestes Arrieta
Armas Minoso, alleged
DOB 11/29/22. Minnie
had already appeared in
the decades of the 40s, 50s
and 60s. At the age of 54
in 1976 he appeared as a
DH for the White Sox and
in eight at bats he got a hit
and only struck out twice.
Minnie was the only player
to get a hit in four separate
decades. The kicker is he
tried to get them to play
him in the 80s but the
commissioner said no. He
was again refused in the
90s. Undaunted, draw a
base on balls for the St.
Paul Saints at the tender
age of 77. Thus becoming
the only man to reach base
in five separate decades.
Minoso came up in an
age without wonder drugs.
Born in Cuba a victim of
segregation but yet able to
attain such ability for so
long. Could it be we need
to bring Geritol back?

Dear Classified Guys,
Not long ago I found an ad in the
classified where someone was giv-
ing away free kittens. I decided to
go look since I had a cat growing up
and loved the idea of getting one
again. I must admit at three weeks
old, they were all very cute. One was
tan and orange like a tiger, another
was white with black patches like a
cow. There was one that was all
black with white paws who looked
like it was wearing a tuxedo. After
playing with them all, I settled
on one that was all white, 4.
and called it Casper like the
ghost. The funny thing was
that I was told the mother was a
purebred American Shorthair
and the father was just a neighbor's
house pet that got loose. How is it
possible for all the cats from this lit-
ter to have such unique coloring? ,
Neither myself nor the person giving
them away really had any answers.
Can you help shed some light?
Carry: Cats are similar to people in
many ways. In addition to the fact that
many of us would like to sleep all day
in the sun, we both come in all shapes,
sizes and colors.
Cash: For cats. the color of their far,
eyes or even nails makes them unique.

Although there is some consistency
within a breed, their coloring is a func-
tion of their genetic makeup.
Carry: Pedigreed American
Shorthair cats naturally come in a vari-
ety of colors and patterns. However,
true pedigrees should produce kittens
with the same physical characteristics
as the parents. Once they mate with a
mixed breed, like the neighbor's cat,
you never know what will happen.
Cash': Those fun fur colors that you
see are determined by the density of
melanin in the cat's hair. As the density
changes, it reflects more or less light,
changing the appearance of the hair
color


0/20/08
C2008 The Classified Guys�

Carry: Some cats get lucky and look
like.they're wearing a tuxedo. Others
get stuck looking like a cow! *
Cash: Much like the hair color, the
temperament of the cat is inherited
from the parents as well. So it's wise to
play with each cat to see which one is a
good match for you.
Carry: American Shorthairs,
whether purebred or.not, make great
pets and are among the top ten most
popular breeds. They are well known
for their good looks, strong health and
friendliness with children and dogs.
Cash: So With any luck, both you
and Casper should be basking in the
sun in no time

Purr-fect
American Shorthairs have always
been one of the most popular breeds
among cat owners. Not surprisingly,
they have a very long history'.in the
United States. It's believed that several
Shorthaired cats arrived in America on
the Mayflower with the Pilgrims. They
allegedly snuck onto the ship, but were
quickly embraced for keeping the
rodents on board under control. Later
when the Pilgrims settled onto farms,
the cats were once again welcomed for
managing the rodent population.
To Dye For?
Could genetics soon make blonde
jokes a thing of the past? An alleged
study published in September 2002
claimed that naturally blonde-haired
people might one day be extinct.
Blonde hair is a result of a recessive
gene that must be present in both sides
of the family. However,' as people of
various hair colors reproduce, the gene
becomes less prevalent. Experts agree
that the proportion of natural blondes
may diminish, but also agree that there
is-no truth to the supposed study. Just
in case though, ma5 be everyone should
brush up on rheir brupene jokes.

Petting Zoo .
My friend has had-many diffe ht.
pets over the years, but-most recently
adopted an older dog she found-%.
newspaper ad. Although she'lhad
her cat for years, she explained that
she was becoming more and more
fond of the dog.
When she called to the animals, he
dog came running and sat on the s6A
next to us. The cat, on the other '- '
hand, lifted its head to look at us and
then went back to sleeping on the'
windowsill. .
' "Is that why you favor the dog?" I
'joked.
"Kind of," she explained. "At least
the dog comes when I call. The cat
seems to put me on hold and check
its schedule!"

A new wrinkle in h
Headache sufferers are finding relief from migraines from an
unexpected source. Botox�, the drug best known for. reducing
wrinkles, is being used to treat headaches. Physicians believe that the
drug reduces headache pain because it reduces muscle, contractions or
blocks a pain-transmitting chemical, or through a combination of both
actions.
Wayne T. Comblath, M.D., neuro-ophthalmologist at the University of
Michigan Kellogg Eye Center, says that many of his patients are
relieved to find that Botox makes their once debilitating headaches
manageable.
Mary Anne Brancheau is one such patient who characterizes the
treatment as "life altering." Now that the injections are working, she
realizes the magnitude of the pain, frustration and fatigue that
accompanied her daily headaches. "I tried other medications for years,
but nothing really worked. Before, I'd describe my quality of life as
mediocre; now I'm productive again, and I'd classify the quality of life
as a ten," she says.
Doctors discovered this new use for Botox just a few years ago, when
patients reported fewer headaches after receiving injections to reduce
wrinkles. Several clinical trials followed, and in June 2002 researchers
atthe annual meeting of the American Headache Society reported on a
study of 134 individuals, most of whom, like Ms. Brancheau, had little
success with conventional medications.
Some 84 percent said that Botox had lessened the pain from their
migraine, tension, or chronic daily headaches. Comrnblath says that he
sees a similar success rate in his own practice. "In my experience,
about one-third of my patients have had complete relief from
headaches, and another one-third have found partial relief," Dr.
Cornblath observes.
To treat headaches Cornblath administers approximately 10 injections,
five in the forehead and five in the back of the neck. The small' dose
and location of the injections help to minimize side effects, whidh are
generally limited to a slight decrease in ability to move forehead
muscles or elevate the eyebrows.
According to Cornblath, "The side effects are negligible, especially
.when compared to those associated %% ith some of the stronger migraine
medications."
The injections take from 1 to 14 days to have an effect, and the benefits
last from 2 to 5 months.
For more information, contact the Eye Plastic and Neuro-
Ophthalmology Clinic at the U-M Kellogg Eye Center, 734-763-9142.
Beyond Botox
Innovative treatment options, such as Botox injections to remedy
headaches, are continually being investigated. The National Headache
Foundation reports that a number of new headache treatments are in the
research and trial phases.
* Generics: Oral and intranasal generic sumatriptan are expected to be
available in 2008 and 2009, respectively (Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals,
Inc. and NovaDel).
* Inhalation device: Uses heat to vaporize a drug into an odorless mist
that passes through the lungs into the bloodstream. The hope is to
provide relief within 60 seconds. The device is currently in clinical
trials using prochlorperazine (Staccato� from Alexza Molecular
Delivery Corp.).
* Skin patch: The system uses a transdermal patch containing the drug
and a small battery-powered electronic controller that precisely
controls the rate and amount of drug released from the patch. A patch is
currently in clinical trials using zolmitriptan (Actyve� from Vyteris). A
sumatriptan transdermal patch based on proprietary SmartRelief�
iontophoretic patch technology is in development. (NuPathe)
� Nasal powders: A powder form of dihydroergotamine is being studied.
Currently administered as a nasal spray, the powder form may be easier

North Florida CommunitN College's INFCC MNar-
shall Hanulton Librar. staff strike to keep the Li-
brary's book collection as current as possible and ac-
cording to a recent assessment b. the College Center
for Librar) Automation (CCLA), the) are doing a
great job. Among its peer community colleges,
NFCC ranks first in terms of lowest overall median
age of its books.
With more than 30,000 total books in circulation,
the Library extracts approximately 1,500 books.from
its collection each year s6' iewer texts can be added.
Newer books tend to circulate better among Library
patrons and offer current information for students,
faculty and the community.
"The youth of our collection is an indicator of
quality," said North Florida Community College Di-
rector of Library and Learning Resources Sheila
Hiss. "Our goal is to offer books that meet our facul-
ty needs and provide our students with new and rele-
vant research material."
The NFCC Libraryhas improved its collection
significantly in the areas of technology, sciences, and
* * I social science since 1998. In 1998 the age of
NFCC's technology books collection averaged at 20
years old; it now averages at 12 years old. In social
sciences, NFCC improved its collection from a me-
dian age of 22 to 15 and in sciences improved from
a median age of 15 to 11 years. CCLA stated that the
"decrease in the percentage of total from 1998 to
2007 for the NFCC collection shows continued at-
tention to collection management." In other words,
the NFCC Library is doing an outstanding job at up-
dating its collection of books.
NFCC also stands out as a leader among similar
sized community colleges in Florida when compar-
ing the percentage of books in its collection pub-
lished prior to 1970. With a continuing goal to de-
crease older books in circulation, only 10 percent of
NFCC's books in the subject of technology are dated
pre-1970; an improvement from 29 percent in 1998.
Other areas also indicate progress - only 13 'percent
of science books are currently dated pre-1.970 show-
ing a significant improvement from 40 percent in
1998; social sciences are at 21 percent and Humani-
ties are at 38 percent.
Since 2002 NFCC has improved the overall medi-
an age of its books by seven years. By weeding out
older books and managing its collection well, the
NFCC Library is able to offer one of the best book
collections among smaller Florida community col-
leges. The Library also offers more than 30,000 e-
books, has videos and magazines available for check
out, and offers computers with Internet access to stu-
dents, NFCC employees and community members.
"The Library is a resource for the college," said
Hiss. "We depend on the input of faculty and stu-
dents for suggestions on the types of materials and
books that are needed and we depend on the college
administration's commitment to a quality library."
The Florida Community College Collection As-
sessment was published by the CCLA in 2007. Es-
tablished in 1989 by the Florida Legislature, CCLA
operates Florida's Library Information Network for
Community Colleges (LINCC) and the Web-based
library information portal, LINCCWeb
http://www.cclaflorida.org/linccweb, from its head-
quarters in Tallahassee.
The Marshall Hamilton Library is located on the
NFCC campus in Madison and is currently open to
the public Monday through Wednesday from 8 a.m.
to 5:30 p.m. and Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Infor-
mation on the Library, including links to the Library
Catalog, is available at
http://www.nfcc.edu/library/home.html.

North Florida Commu-
nity College (NFCC) is
giving 20 qualified high
school students the oppor-
tunity to find early college
success through its six-
week Dual Enrollment
Summer Institute that be-
gan June 9. The Institute
offers high school students
the opportunity to get
'ahead by taking free col-
lege courses.
Students completing

a? I ~4I


~ c~-~tcS S7


NFCC can earn both high
school and college credits.
"I am taking dual enroll-
ment to get ahead in not
only on my college, but
also my high school," said
Taylor County High School
student Charlie Johnson.
"By taking English at
NFCC, I get college hours
and high ,school credits at
the same time."
Classes like Computer
Applications I, Freshman
English I and General Psy-
chology give the Dual En-
rollment Summer Institute
participants a chance to ex-
perience challenging col-
lege level courses. Suwan-
nee High School student
Chance Cummings is feel-
ing that very challenge.
l' 'The classes are chal-
aging and there's a lot of
reading involved, but all in
all I'm learning," said
Cummings.
For other dual enrollment
students it's all about expe-
riencing college life, while
building positive experi-
ences for future endeavors.
"I want to get used to
college life before I get out
of high school," said Madi-
son County High School
student Jimmy Smith. "I
also wanted to take the
courses because it would
look good on my resume
when I graduate."
Whether students are
looking to get ahead of the
educational curve or accli-
mate themselves to college
life, NFCC's dual enroll-
ment is available to quali-
fying students with a 3.0
GPA or higher, acceptable
placement test scores, and
approval of their high
school guidance office.
Students in public, private
and home-school environ-
ments are eligible. NFCC
tuition is waived.
For mor more information
about dual enrollment or
early college admissions
parents and students should
contact their high school
counselors. For more infor-
mation about NFCC visit
