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.

Control Angina Pain with Medications
Angina is a heart-related condition caused by reduced flow of
oxygenated blood to the heart itself. Stable angina, the most common
type, is brought on by the increased oxygen demand on the heart
caused by exertion, such as climbing a flight of stairs, and typically
lasts only a few minutes. Unstable angina is a potential sign of a heart
attack, which may occur unexpectedly while a person is at rest.
Medical attention should be sought immediately when this occurs.
Sensations of pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain in the center of the
chest are descriptive of the symptoms and discomfort associated with
the condition. Other symptoms include dizziness, fatigue, and
'shortness of breath.
Mild angina pain may be controlled with lifestyle changes, such as
eating a healthy diet, starting an exercise plan, and losing excess
weight. Several medications are recommended for the management of
angina. Nitroglycerin tablets may be placed under the tongue to allow
more blood to flow to the heart. Aspirin helps the blood flow through
arteries more easily by reducing the ability of the blood to clot. Beta-
blockers, calcium channel blockers, and angiotensin-converting
enzyme (ACE) inhibitors also may be prescribed. Ranolazine
(Ranexa) is a newer medication approved for the treatment of stable
angina. 466562-F

GFWC Live Oak Woman's Club

kicks off reading program
By: April Pinkard

The GFWC Woman's Club of Live of Live Oak
will kick off its 21st year of reading to the children.
The Woman's club reads to children of the first grade
at the Suwannee Primary school in Live Oak. They
ask for volunteers for readers because there simply is
not enough of them to go around. Any volunteer is
welcome to join the woman's club and participate in
all the rewarding programs that they offer as well as
the fellowship the ladies share monthly.
People volunteer from year to year out of satisfac-
tion however, some people left us last year because of
illness or moved away and we desperately need vol-
unteers to help us continue this program. The
woman's club is a non-profit community service or-
ganization and gives to the community whenever pos-
sible. It is extremely important we do not let this pro-
gram die out as reading to the children helps them
learn and learn to love reading as well. We teach
them that you can go anywhere in a book. Please
come join us and give something special to the chil-
dren and to yourself.
The reading program consists of reading to a class
for 1/2 hour or the option of the hour spot in which
you read to two classes. The reading program is from
Monday-Thursday at various times though out the
day. Please contact Lynn Rutherford at 386-208-0904
if you would like more information, or Lillie Hodges
for information on joining the woman's club at 386-
776-1820.

Get Your Smile Back! I


There are some exciting changes
coming to Girl Scouting this fall. Af-
ter extensive interviews with Girl
Scouts and volunteers nationally,
Girl Scouts here in Suwannee Coun-
ty and around the country are gear-
ing up for the new "Girl Scout Lead-
ership Experience."
One major change will effect ALL
Girl Scouts:
New Girl Scout Program Age Lev-
el Groupings and Names: Girl Scout
Daisy, grades K-1; Girl Scout
Brownie, grades 2-3; Girl Scout Ju-
nior, grades 4-5; Girl Scout Cadette,
grades 6-8; Girl Scout Senior, grades
9-10; and Girl Scout Ambassador,
grades 11-12.
Girl Scouts of the USA conducted
research to determine the appropriate
age level groupings that girls identi-
fy with socially and developmental-
ly. The resulting change in program
age levels, and the addition of the
"Ambassador" grouping, are the first
such changes since the 1980s.
Regardless of what name you call
them by, Girl Scouts continue to
change the way girls see the
world, and how the world sees girls..
And Move over, trusty old "Girl
Scout Handbook" there's a new
kid in town! Girl Scouts in each
program level will experience the


best Girl Scouting has to offer
in "Journeys" a new series of
books outlining age appropriate
themed activities, customizable by
girls and volunteers. They'll earn
recognition (such as badges, pins
and charms) for their progress.
Girl Scout volunteers are keeping
up with all these changes through a
series of new training including
online courses in leadership basics
and managing the transition from
one age level to the next. New vol-
unteers are always welcome,
and volunteer experiences can be tai-
lored to accommodate even the
most busy schedules.
"The secret to successful outcomes
in Girl Scouting is not just. what girls
do, it's how they work individually
and together" says Sandra Tyser,
CEO of Girl Scouts of Gateway
Council. "Through hands-on activi-
ties (learning by doing), and practic-
,ing cooperative learning, they are
learning the fundamentals of leader-
ship, developing positive
values, and gaining practical life
skills," said Tysver.
As girls progress through Girl
Scouting, they take leadership roles
in their troops and in their communi-
ty. They learn to identify community
needs, then take action to develop


solutions and make a positive im-
pact. They educate and inspire others
to act as resourceful problem
'solvers, and empower themselves
and others to make a difference in
the world."
Girls can participate in a tradition-
al Girl Scout troop setting, or join as
individual Girl Scout members. All
members can choose to participate in
any number of 'Program Pathways'
- in traditional troops or through
special interest groups, focusing on
leadership projects, outdoor educa-
tion, travel and camping.

troop meeting near you? Attend one

teers who are making Girl Scouting

RECYCLING BINS: '
Live Oak: There is a newspa-
per recycling bin at 305
Pinewood. Drive, Live Oak, just
west of Johnson's Appliance/Ra-
dio Shac1:.
Lee: Recycling bins are locat-
ed at the shelter at 1156 SE Bis-
bee Loop, Madison (just South
of Lee) for newspapers, cata-
logs, pap(r, magazines and bro-
ken dowiti cardboard. All the
money goes to help the home-
less anim als.
S PAYING AND
NEUTERING:
Experts say the most impor-
tant thing; people can do to help
their pets; is to get them spayed
or neutered. This means the ani-
mals get an operation, to be sure
they can't have kittens or pup-
pies. They are asleep during the
operation, so they aren't scared
or in paila.
Spaying and neutering are so
important because there are so
many animals needing care and
not enough homes or shelters for
them.
One c:at or dog can have many
litters iti its life. Its kittens or
puppie'?, can have many litters,
too. This can end up creating
thousands of new cats and dogs.

in vehicles for any length of
time due to the heat and humidi-
ty or cold weather.

Bronson reminds Ag producers of farm bill

change affecting disaster assistance


With the hurricane season enter-
ing its peak period, Florida Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services Com-
missioner Charles H. Bronson re-
minds agricultural producers that
they must have crop insurance or
non-insured crop disaster assistance
coverage (NAP) to be eligible for
compensation under the govern-
ment's disaster programs.
A provision of the 2008 Farm
Bill, which was enacted into law in
June, requires that farmers and
ranchers carry one or the other of
the two insurance programs to be
reimbursed for agricul.tiralpsses.,


Prior to the law's enactment, such
coverage was not mandatory.
Because the law took effect after
application periods expired for the
insurance programs, producers have
until Sept. 16 to take advantage of a
waiver that permits them to pay a
"buy-in" fee to be eligible for disas-
ter assistance. Producers can contact
their local FSA County Office to
file the waiver application and pay
the applicable fees.
The buy-in fee is $100 per crop,
or a maximum of $300 per county
for growers who raise multiple
crops in a county. or those.grow-:


ing in multiple counties, the fee is
capped at $900.
"It is vitally important that grow-
ers obtain insurance coverage to
protect themselves," Bronson said.
"While we've had a brief lull since
the catastrophic hurricanes of 2004
and 2005, meteorologists remind us
that we are in the middle of what is
forecast to be a particularly active
hurricane period."
For more information about the
2008 crop year buy-in for disaster
assistance programs, visit

The last

word on

The Last

Word

Many thanks to the 300
or so folks who attended
The Last Word political
rally Monday night at
Suwannee High. After
Tropical Storm Fay
forced us to postpone
what's always the biggest
event of the political sea-
son, we feared a low
turnout for the election
eve make-up session.
County voters turned out
in force to prove us
wrong, however. We
thank them for nothing
less than their devotion to
the democratic process.
Those in attendance
saw 29 candidates look
them in the eye and ask
for their. trust and their
votes. Considering the
timing, it really was the
last word on the election,
and there was some sense
of urgency in the air.
Thanks to Brant Hel-
venston, who did a fine
job, as always, as emcee.
Thanks as well to Kickin'
Kevin of WQHL, the
Suwannee Democrat
staff, and, especially,
SHS Principal Dawn
Lamb, who made the
SHS auditorium available
to us on such short no-
tice.

To the Editor:
In response to Rant & Rave, July
25, 2008: "Just where in the U.S.
Constitution and its amendments is
the power delegated to the federal
government to provide healthcare
for its citizens?"
It is right beside where "we the
people" have granted a gift to work-
ers who are employed within the
federal government system (the
largest union) the privilege of a pen'-
sion/retirement fund, matched funds
provided by "we the people" instead
of requiring those workers to pay
100 percent of their own way to-
wards their individual retirement
such as is- the case that the majority
of real workers are required to do
within the real capitalistic system.
It is in the same paragraph where
the Florida Senate allocated more
than $2,000,000 worth of. "we the
peoples" money to the Columbia
County Lifestyle Enrichment Center
for "exercise, meals, recreation,
transportation, dementia day care"

for a specific few of the population.

It is right next to where the federal
government shares all of "we the
peoples" contributions to create an
Interstate Highway system so that all
of those who choose to participate
, may travel, work and play with lib-
erty.
It is in bold print right where the
U.S. government donates "we the
peoples" billions and billions of dol-
lars to foreign countries as aid to
their citizens for whatever manner
decided.
It is ,in the section where the U.S.
government disburses welfare pay-
ments to 33 percent of all farmers so
they do no-t have to work to the cost
of us, "we the people," of $177.6
billion in subsidies for 1995-2006.
(2)
It is in the same footnote that "we.
the people" have allowed privileges
to entities such as non-profits, that
pay no property tax thus do not sup-
port the police, fire, road department


or any infrastructure.
Some say that a person named
Noah built an ark. Some say that it
was to benefit the whole of society.
Yet, almost 100% of its riders did
hot contribute in labor, material or
time but accepted the generosity, the
gift, the-privilege. In spite of each's
owni natural tendencies (to eat each
other) they all co-existed for the
benefit of the whole.
It is in the same section where "we
the: people" have decided that the
whole would benefit more by sup-
porting all of its citizens with Life,
Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
and, as it is said in the Preamble to
the Constitution of the United States
.. promote the general welfare ... to
ourselves and our posterity.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: What is nitrous oxide?
A: Nitrous oxide is a colorless,
nonflammable, sweet-smelling and sweet-
tasting gas commonly used by dentists as
an anesthetic. Nitrous oxide s sone of the
dentist's tools for relaxing a patient and
easing anxiety. The gas is actually a
compound of nitrogen and oxygen and is
inhaled through a partial mask. It creates
a feeling of giddiness or euphoria. Nitrous
oxide is a orm ol conscious sedation,
meaning that the patient is not asleep, but
is conscious and capable of responding to
instruction from the dentist. If there Is
discomfort during the treatment, the
effects of nitrous oxide make the
discomfort more bearable and can even
make time seem as through it passes
more quickly.
For some procedures the dentist may use
a topical anesthetic which is applied to the
gums or other soft tissue with a cotton
swab, or a local anesthetic, such as a shot
of Novacaine. For certain other
procedures, the dentist may recommend
general anesthesia, which will render you
temporarily unconscious. Dentists
routinely administer various types of
anesthesia to millions of patients. Talk with
your dentist about the types of anesthesia
that are available to you and don't hesitate
to askquestions.

Hurricane information sheet

Safety tips for home repair in hurricane-damaged areas


The danger of a storm does not end
when it passes. As Florida citizens return
to their homes and begin repairs, the
Florida Department of Health (DOH)
suggests taking the following safety pre-
cautions to prevent personal injury:
If possible, work in pairs or groups.
Take short breaks and work during the
cooler hours of the day. Wear goggles,
heavy gloves and steel-toed boots.
Immediately clean all open wounds
and cuts with soap and clean water. Cuts
beyond minor scratches may require
medical attention. .
Never assume that water-damaged
structures are safe; leave immediately if
shifting or unusual noises occur.
Avoid lifting more than 50 pounds of
debris or building materials. Two or
more people should move bulky objects.
Avoid heat stroke and heat exhaustion,
by wearing light-colored, loose-fitting
clothing and drinking a glass of fluid
every 15 to 20 minutes.


Never bring gasoline
or diesel-powered
pumps, generators or
pressure washers in-
doors as they release

SRWMD responds to Tropical Storm Fay


In response to Tropical Storm Fay, the Suwannee Riv-
er Water Management District (District) wants to inform
the public of its efforts in support of flood control opera-
tions and ongoing mitigation efforts to help minimize
negative impacts.
Citizens can continuously check real-time rainfall data,
surfacewater levels and flood prediction information 'by
visiting the District's website at
www.mysuwanneeriver.com. In preparation for major
storms, a link is posted on the homepage to take readers
directly to the flood information page, which also has
links to other helpful sites such as the National Weather
Service and Florida Division of Emergency Manage-
ment.
River level information can also be accessed 24 hours
a day by calling the District's automated phone line at
386-362-6626 or 800-604-2272.
The District has an active program of local govern-
ment assistance in which funds and expertise are provid-
ed in establishing stormwater utilities and surface water
system retrofits and improvements. The District is also a
cooperative technical partner with the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency (FEMA) and is working to
assist in digitizing and updating flood insurance rate
maps throughout the water management district.
The District has acquired approximately 350 miles of
river frontage as part of its Land Acquisition and Man-
agement plan that keeps development out of harms way.
A non-structural approach to floodplain management is
currently in place, and there are no canals, dikes, dams
or levees to maintain and no structures to either contain
or release water: However, the District takes a proactive
regulatory approach that requires dwellings and other
buildings be set back 75 feet from the river bank and

THE AFTERMATH



FWC urges boaters to be careful

after flooding.due to Fay


Tropical Storm Fay?s torrential downpours
are flooding many of Florida?s creeks, rivers,
canals and other waterways, and high wind
gusts are blowing debris into the water. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is urging boaters to watch
out for navigation hazards when the storm
passes and people resume using waterways.
Though there has been a lack of rainfall
through most of the state, in some areas where
water has risen significantly, hazards
previously on dry land or shallow water may
be wholly or partially submerged and not
obvious to boat operators.
In addition, overhanging branches, deck
furniture, boat gear or any number of objects
may have dropped or blown into the water.
FWC spokesmen said a boater may never
know wvhat he or she strikes, but the resulting
damage can be great, and even life-threatening.


If the conditions are extremely hazardous,
the FWC, in conjunction with local, federal
and other state agencies, may close a portion of
a waterway to prevent death, injuries or
property damage. In some cases, the FWC will
restrict vessel operation to idle-speed, no-
wake, so boaters can assess conditions and
avoid dangers.
Vessel operation at speeds greater than idle-
speed, no-wake can endanger people in or near
the river where shorelines have become
unstable and unfamiliar. Shorelines and '
property on shorelines already buffeted by
Fay?s winds and resulting waves, may be
damaged further by a boat?s wake.
Information on reporting debris and other
information on boating and waterways is
available at MyFWC. com/boating/
. Report
damaged markers to 1-866-405-BUOY


FWC will deal with lost and

damaged boats after the storm


As Tropical Storm Fay?s
winds pull at mooring lines
and boat anchors, some
vessismaPy break free in-
spite of the best efforts of the
boats? owners. The Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) and other agencies
will take on the task of
identifying and returning lost
boats to their owners after
the winds die down and
officials can assess the
condition of waterways.
Typically, returning a lost
boat to its owner is easy.
However, in'some instances,
the owner chooses not to
reclaim his vessel and
abandons it. Eventually the
vessel becomes ?dere lic t.?
A vessel is considered
derelict if it is wrecked,
junked or dismantled and is
lefton any public waters or :
at any port 'or docked at
private property without the
property owners consent.
The FWC and local law
enforcement agencies must
exhaust all available means
to have the owner remove
the vessel.
The'owner of a derelict
vessel is responsible for
removing it from public
waters. If the owner refuses,
he may face criminal
changes, with a fine of up to
$1,000, up to one year in jail
or both,? FWC?s law I
enforcement director, Col.


Julie Jones, said. ?Derelict
vessels are dangerous to
other boaters. they are
unsightly and they damage
our environment.?
In addition, the boat
owner may have to
reimburse local governments
or the state for the disposal
costs of their vessel. The
vessel's owner will not be
able to register any vehicle,
or vessel in Florida until the


state has been reimbursed
for removing the derelict
essel .

Information on boating
laws and other boating-
related information are
available at
MyFWC. com/boating/
eating/>. Report damaged
markers to 1-866-405-
BUOY


FWC: Idle speed no wake zones

may take effect on the

Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers
Torrential rain brought by Tropical Storm Fay may cause
elevated -water levels in many of the states rivers, including
the Santa Fe Riverand the Suwannee River. When the water
reaches a certain level, idle speed, no wake zones go into
effect. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is cautioning boaters to become familiar
with the temporary zone changes of the Suwannee and Santa
Fe rivers.
Idle speed, no wake is defined as, the lowest speed needed to
maintain steerage and forward motion. The zones are identified
in Florida Administrative Code 68D-24.020, which can be
accessed at MyFWC.com (click
on ?Law and Code Manual?).
, Boaters can learn about the conditions of the Santa Fe and
Suwannee rivers by logging onto
http://www.srwmd.state.fl.us/index.asp?nid=253.
The FWC, along with other law enforcement agencies, will
be enforcing the zones. "

"A picture is worth a thou-

Unfortunately, some of those

Be sure to get your statement


By Clif Copeland, Social
Security Public Affairs'
Specialist, Gainesville
Your Social Security. State-:
ment is an important document
that can help you plan for retire-
ment. Whether you're a young
worker just starting a career or a
seasoned eniployee ready to.re-
tire, the Statement is designed to
help you.
The Social Security Statement
includes a message from the
Commissioner'and a record of
your earnings each year. It pro-
vides you with retirement benefit
estimates using different retire-
ment scenarios. The Statement


also provides estimates of dis-
ability and survivors benefits for
you and your family in the event
that you become disabled or die.
If you're like most workers
who pay Social Security taxes,
you automatically receive a
Statement in the mail each year,
about three months before your
birthday. But there are situations
in which a person may not be re-
ceiving a Statement each year.
For example, if you work each
year, but your earned income is'
low enough that you do not need
to file a tax return; you won't re-
ceive an automatic Social Secu-
rity Statement. Also. if you're


younger than 25 years old, or if
you are already receiving bene-
fits, you won't receive an auto-
matic Statement each year.
However, if you need a State-
ment, you can request one. Just
goto
www.socialsecurity.gov/mystate-
ment. There, you can learn more
about the Social Security State-
ment, and request to have one
mailed to you. Keep in mind that
if you're already receiving bene-
fits, your Statement will contin-
ue to show your updated earn-
ings each year you work, but
will not provide an estimate of
future benefits.


Here's what you'll need to
make your request:
Your name as shown on your
Social Security card;
Your Social Security num-
ber;
Your date of birth;
Your place of birth; and
Your mother's maiden name.
The online request also is
handy for people who do receive
their automatic Statement each
,ear, but can't find their most re-
cent one and have some finan-
cial planning to do. You can re-
quest to have one mailed to you
at any time.
Keep in mind, however, that if


you request to have one sent to
you even though you already re-
ceive one automatically each
year, the next scheduled auto-
matic Statement will be can-
celed. You'd then receive your
next automatic Statement in the
following year.
For more information, read
the Social Security Statement
page at
www.socialsecurity.gov/mystate-
ment.

tion messages that could
otherwise positively affect
the future of our fisheries.
For those reasons, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife .
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has recently taken
a more proactive stance by
developing "Image Guide-
lines for Fishing and Boat-
ing Scenes,'-' with exam-
ples of the good, the bad
and the ugly,
(See MyFWC.com/fish-
ing/pdf/photoguidelines.pd
f). These guidelines are
supported by a candid re-
search document that cites
many important studies -
explaining the rationale
behind commonly suggest-
ed catch-and-release fish-
handling suggestions,
(See MyFWC.com/fish-
ing/pdf/photoguidelines_n
otes.pdf).
The FWC realizes that
promoting Florida fishing
and boating includes not
only an obligation to por-
tray the fun, excitement
and camaraderie in a posi-
tive fashion but also to re-
flect safe and sustainable
use of Florida's natural re-
sources. We are.proud that
so.many fine publications
print this Florida Fish
Busters' Bulletin each
month, and we. encourage
them and all of their con-
tributors to review these
photo guidelines and use
them when possible to
strengthen both the appeal
and important messages

that their photography
conveys.
The following photogra-
phy tips and guidelines are
just a summary of the full
document, which we be-
lieve will be helpful to
every angler. Next time
you go fishing or boating
bring along a camera to
capture the memories, and
remember these tips to
help produce a great photo
and remind you of what it
takes to be safe around the
water and to help ensure
fish for tomorrow's enjoy-
ment as well.

Subject Matter Tips

1. Photos of anglers
should reflect good taste
and safe, legal and conser-
vation-minded fishing
,practices.
2. Emphasize the fun of
fishing with big smiles and
natural settings. Avoid
trash in the background,
excess blood and tobacco
or alcohol.
3. Ensure appropriate
boating safety equipment
is evident in the photo. For
instance, life jackets


should always be on chil-
dren in a boat.
4. Photos should depict
safe boating practices, in-
cluding avoiding overload-
ing small vessels, use of
kill switches, etc.
5. Fish that are illegal to
harvest, due to creel or
size limits, should be
shown in the water. For in-
stance, undersized sailfish
jumping or.a goliath
grouper alongside the boat
about to be released. Gaffs
should not be used on fish
that may be released. Tar-
pon that are out of the wa-
ter should have a "legally
harvested" tag showing.
6. If you have to remove
fish from the water, try
holding your breath while
the fish is out of the water
as a reminder to release it
quickly. Large fish should
never be suspended by the
jaw, not even to weigh
them, if they are going to
be released. To protect the
slime layer, use wet hands
to handle fish; Similarly, if
a landing net is needed,
use a rubber-coated net.
Never touch the eyes and
gills. However, holding

and supporting the fish
horizontally with a thumb
(depending on the species;
be careful of sharp teeth)
or lip-grip tool in the
mouth and using the other
hand to help support and
.control the fish can keep it
from thrashing around or
getting loose. Properly
used, hemostats, needle-
nosed pliers or dehooking
tools can be useful for'
backing the hook out, but
cut the line if it is deeply
embedded.

Photography Tips

1. Digital or film Digi-
tal cameras work fine for
most applications. How-
ever, if you plan to print
the image, a minimum res-
olution of 2 megapixels
(good for a 4" x 6" image)
is needed.
2. ISO ISO refers-to
the light-capturing quality
of film, but a similar set-
ting is available on many
digital cameras. Lower
numbers (25-100) require
more light, but capture
much greater detail.
3. The rule of thirds ap-

plies When composing
photos, it is often best not
to center your subject, but
place it so the focal point
is about one-third of the
way from an edge.
4. Closeup For many
fishing shots, you'll want
to come close to filling the
frame with the fish, the an-
gler and the fish, or a
scene including the tackle
and fish.
5. Smiles When pho-
tographing anglers, it's all'
about the fun of fishing
that should be reflected in
the anglers' smiles and
body language. Mix the
direction up with anglers,
sometimes focusing on the
fish, rather than the cam-
era..
6. Lighting Natural
light, especially early
morning and late after-
noon, tends to provide the-
most dynamic effect.
When using a flash, ensure
you are close enough for


the power of your flash
and be aware of the redeye
effect. To avoid shadows
on someone's face, for in-
stance from their cap bill,
consider using your cam-
era's fill flash.

Tropical storm/hurricane fact sheet



Department of Health urges precautionary measures to prevent

west nile virus and other mosquito-borne illnesses


Due to floodwaters from Tropical
Storm Fay, Florida Department of Health
(DOH) officials emphasize the impor-
tance of Florida's residents and visitors
protecting themselves against mosquito-
borne diseases.
DOH continues to advise the public to
remain diligent in protecting themselves
from mosquito bites by following the "5
D's," which include:
Dusk and Dawn Avoid being out-
doors when mosquitoes are seeking
blood. For many species, this is during
the dusk and dawn hours.
Dress Wear clothing that covers most
of your skin.
DEET When the potential exists for
exposure to mosquitoes, repellents con-
taining DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-tolu-
amide, or N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenza-
mide) are recommended. Picaridin and
oil of lemon eucalyptus are other repel-
lent options. If additional protection is
necessary, a permethrin repellent can be
applied directly to your clothing. Again,
always follow the manufacturer's direc-
tions.
Drainage Check around your home
to rid the area of standing water, which
is where mosquitoes can lay their eggs.,


Tips on Repellent Use
Always read label directions carefully
for the approved usage before applying a
repellent to skin. Some repellants are not
suitable for children.
Products with concentrations of up to
30 percent DEET are generally recom-
mended. Other potential mosquito repel-
lents, as reported by the Centers for Dis-
ease Control and Prevention (CDC) in
April 2005, contain picaridin or oil of
lemon eucalyptus. These products are
generally available at local pharmacies.
Look for active ingredients to be listed
on the product label.
Apply insect repellent to exposed skin,
or onto clothing, but not under clothing.
In protecting children, read label in-
structions to be sure the repellent is age-
appropriate. According to the CDC, mos-
quito repellents containing oil of lemon
eucalyptus should not be used on chil-
dren under the age of 3 years. DEET is
not recommended on children younger
than 2 months old.
Infants should be kept indoors or mos-
quito netting should be used over carriers
when mosquitoes are present.
Avoid applying repellents to the hands
of children. Adults should apply repel-


lent first to their own hands and then
transfer it to the child's skin and cloth-
ing.
If additional protection is necessary,
apply a permethrin repellent directly to
your clothing. Again, always follow the
manufacturer's directions.
Tips on Eliminating Mosquito Breed-
ing Sites
Elimination of breeding sites is one of
the keys to prevention.
Clean out eaves, troughs and gutters.
Remove old tires or drill holes in those
used in playgrounds to drain.
Turn over or remove empty plastic
pots.
Pick up all beverage containers and
cups.
Check tarps on boats or other equip-
ment that may collect water.
Pump out bilges on boats.
Replace water in birdbaths and pet or
other animal feeding dishes at least once
a week.
Change water in plant trays, including
hanging plants, at least once a week.
Remove vegetation or obstructions in
drainage ditches that prevent the flow of
water.
Symptoms of West Nile virus may in-


clude headache, fever, fatigue, dizziness,
weakness and confusion. Physicians
should contact their county health de-
partment if they suspect an individual
may have a mosquito-borne illness. DOH
laboratories provide testing services for
physicians treating patients with clinical
signs of mosquito-borne disease.
DOH continues to conduct statewide
surveillance for mosquito borne illness-
es, including West Nile (WN) virus,
Eastern Equine Encephalomyelitis
(EEE), St. Louis Encephalitis (SLE),
malaria and dengue. For more informa-
tion on mosquito-borne illnesses, visit
DOH's EnvironmentalHealth Web site at
http://www.doh.state.fl.us/Environment/c
ommunity/arboviral/index.html, call the
West Nile Virus Hot line at toll free at
888-880-5782 or your local county
health department.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission maintains a Web site
for reporting wild bird die offs related to
West Nile Virus. To report a suspected
case, visit http://wildflorida.org/bird.

Bronson urges food safety in wake of storm


Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson is warning residents to keep
food safety in mind as Tropical Storm Fay continues to
move through the state. Flood water that could be conta-
minated by sewage, pesticides and other hazardous mate-'
rials may come into contact with food and power outages
can impact perishable items.
Bronson's department is responsible for food safety in
Florida and he is concerned that residents returning home
from evacuations or even those who have not left their
homes may not realize that food and water supplies can
be damaged or destroyed by flood water. People should
never drink or use tap water until they are sure it has
been declared safe by local authorities. Until then, they
need to boil the water for at least one minute before us-


ing it.
"Some storm damage may not be immediately notice-
able to residents and that could create a false sense of se-
'curity," Bronson said. "If a home has been flooded, peo-
ple need to take steps to ensure the water and food is free
of contamination and safe to consume."
Canned and packaged items that may. have been in
contact with flood water should be sanitized with one ta-
blespoon of bleach per gallon of water. Counters and
other food contact surfaces and utensils should also be
sanitized. Dented or swollen cans and jars with swollen
lids should be discarded.
Power, outages can also impact food safety. Perishable
food that has been stored
