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.

Suwannee County Historical Museum Association

to present Railroad Days Sept. 19-20


Live Oak is the perfect setting for a railroad festival,
because Live Oak's very existence is due to the railroad.
The town was established around the railroad. In 1857,
construction began on. an east-west railroad across North
Florida from Jacksonville to Tallahassee. It was complet-
ed in 1861. During the Civil War when Union soldiers oc-
cupied parts of Jacksonville and Pensacola, a strategic
railroad was constructed from DuPont, Ga., south to inter-
sect with the east-west railroad in North Florida. Near the
junction of these railroads was a giant live oak tree adja-
cent to a small pond where several trails converged,
where railroad crews ate their lunches and settlers wa-
tered their horses and rested in the shade of the oak tree.
When the railroad was erected near that site, it seemed
natural to call it "Live Oak." The town of Live Oak was
plotted and lots were sold; incorporation followed in
1858.
The Suwannee County Historical Museum Association
is proud to announce the formatiori of an event that will
focus on the history and heritage of the railroad and the
importance it played in the establishment and develop-
ment of Live Oak and Suwannee County.
Railroad Days will be held Friday and Saturday, Sept.
19-20. Festivities will begin at 8 a.m. on both days. Fri-
day will see the day begin with an old-fashioned farmer's
market and quiilt show.on the loading dock of the muse-
um. LifeSouth Blood Bank be onsite for a blood drive.
The museum will welcome school groups throughout the
day-for field trip tours and special events. The Suwannee
River Regional Library System will conduct a Suwannee
County Jeopardy game several times throughout the day.
The day will come to a close with the premiere of the oral
!history video presentation done by the Suwannee Histori-
cal Commission. The premiere will be held on the loading
dock, beginning at 6 p.m. These will be available for pur-
chase through the museum as they are made available.
The largest part of the festivities will take place on Sat-
urday. The event will host arts and crafts vendors, a clas-
sic car show, local entertainment, children's activities and


much more. A highlighted
part of this event will be
book signing opportunities
by local authors. The muse-
um association will also be
conducting historic tours
and programs within the
museum facilities as well
as giving away several door
prizes. Several items of
railroad significance have
been loaned to the museum

trance of the museum facil-
ities has been renovated to
focus on the railroad indus-
try, and has been designat-
ed as the Freight Room.


Saturday's events will run from 8 a.m. 6 p.m.

annual event. It is hopeful that through this event that the
community will become more aware of the programs that
the Suwannee County Historical Museum offers and its.
importance within the community. For more information

The next reason 4-H is such a
great value is the specialty clubs
that make up the Suwannee
County 4-H program. The
RoboDogs, Pony Express, and
W Shooting Sports clubs are
specialty clubs that have their
own unique niche in 4-H. The
RoboDogs club use robotics to
encourage creativity and allow youth to
learn engineering skills. The Pony Express
club has a club horse show on the third
Saturday of the month from August until
December. The Shooting Sports club
encourages youth to learn proper gun
safety, fishing, and survival skills that can
be used throughout life. There are also
many more general' clubs such as Farm
Fresh, Live Oak Learners, and Suwannee
'Explorers and regional clubs throughout
the County such as Branford, Leona, and
McAlpin that fill the unique needs of
Suwinnee County's youth.
Another reason 4-H is valuable is the
leadership skills that youth can learn from
their involvement. Today's society is in
dire need of leadership from its youth. 4-H
can fill this leadership need with all of its
programs and activities. 4-H Legislature is
a unique program that
allows youth to have a
"learn by doing"
experience in state

Does Herbal Mate contain caffeine?
For many years, and even now, in some sectors of the world, herbal mate was (is) tih.rr I Espre

chemical that was originally thought to be another term for caffeine because it is so i I, i, II* Drive l
close to caffeine. They are finding that it holds the pick me up qualities of caffeine, *, ,r,...ul rc *
addiction and other problems associated with caffeine. Mateine differs from caffeine .-.. .'e
rather dramatic ways. It stimulates the central nervous system, but unlike caffeine i i. ..s
habituating or addicting. It induces better, not worse, attributes of sleep. It rel e

Record number of Florida students take SAT and AP exams


Florida's minority SAT and AP exam-takers outperform their national counterparts


Nearly 100,000 Florida students took the
SAT this year, the most ever according to
the 2008 SAT results released today by the,
College Board. In addition to record partici-
pation levels, the results also indicate that
Florida's Hispanic and African-American
students outscored their national counter-
parts on the reading and mathematics sec-
tions of the SAT by 37 points (953 com-
bined score) and five points (861 combined
score), respectively.


"These results are a strong indication that
more Florida students are setting themselves
on a path to a postsecondary education,"
said Education Commissioner Dr. Eric J.
Smith. "While I am highly encouraged by
this trend, we must continue to emphasize
the need for increased access to rigorous
coursework to ensure that our students are
prepared for the challenges ahead."
The SAT consists of three major exam
sections including reading, mathematics,

one-year increase in the number of pub-
lic school AP exam-takers (increase of
14,151 exam-takers for a total of
117,698) when compared to all other
states. Increases in Florida AP exam tak-
' ,ers were highest among minority stu-
dents. According to the College Board,
Florida had the greatest one-year in-


and writing. Each section receives a score
on the scale of 200-800. Traditionally, state
and national averages are reported using a
combined score of the reading and mathe-
matics sections only. Even with increased.
student participation, Florida's average
combined reading and math SAT score re-
mained the same as last year at 993. For in-
dividual exam sections, Florida's average
score was up two points in writing (481), up
one point in mathematics (497) and down

crease (30 percent).in the number of
African-American public school AP
exam takers when compared to all other
states and the third greatest increase (14
percent) in the number of Hispanic exam
takers.
Florida students also performed well
on AP exams. Florida had the third great-
est increase (5.9 percent) in the number
of students passing (receiving grades of


one point in reading (496) compared to
2007.
The SAT is a voluntary college entrance
exam, and scores from the test can be used
for admission to a state university, the Tal-
ented 20 program, for meeting qualifica-
tions in the Bright Futures Scholarship Pro-
gram or for placement into regular college
courses. Students may access information
about the SAT and other college entrance
exams through Florida's online student ad-
vising system, the Florida Academic Coun-
seling and Tracking for Students at
www.FACTS.org.

3-5) AP exams when compared to all
other states from 2007 to 2008. Nation-
wide, one out of every eight African-
American AP exam-takers, and one out
of every seven Hispanic AP exam-takers
awarded a passing grade or higher was
from a public high school in Florida.

mance on the SAT and AP, visit www.fl-

Rant






Want to vent?

Our hotline is open 24/7.
Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak your mind! How do
you do that? By calling the Suwannee Democrat Rant and
Rave hotline! The hotline never closes and is your way to let it
out. Think the city or county government isn't doing its job?
Are you fed up with traffic, bad roads, overflowing dump sites,
general discourtesy and zoning board decisions, both city and
county? Now you can let everyone know how you feel -- as
long as you express yourself in a respectful way.
Note: All written entries to Rant and Rave are unedited.
Errors in spelling, grammar or punctuation are those of the
authors.

Get your heads out of the retention pond people. Artwork
on the bowling alley is the very least of problems! Our
school system is in shambles, short about 40 teachers. We
have inadequit medical care, our river system has the high-
est nitro. level in the state and the political machine would
make Huey Long proud! This is the result of conflicting in-
terests and religious fanaticism over generations. We do have
$ to buy a mansion, Drs. won't come here because it is poor
& backwards, the Suw. River Partnership gives itself an A+
grade while the water supply is making people ill and elec-
tions are simply musical chairs & hat switching. Our leaders
only want churches, (that don't pay takes), 1g. comm. ag ops.
(that cause water issues ) & a prison to tax our social ser-
vices even more. No fun, nothing enjoyable or tourist
freindly, please Heaven no!!! Let's approve another ag. in-
tense zoning change while the springs & rivers get trashed,
maybe have the WMD remove some more land from the tax
rolls and campaign based on how many generations and re-
ligous affiliation. The results speak for themselves, REAL
LOUD!!! Let the bowling alley do as they please under ex-
isting law, by the way.

Why isn't the agenda for the county comm. published in
our paper? Legal notices are required by law, cost the tax-
payer and provide income for the "Democrat", but are 'legal
notices', written in legalese language. The agenda is the only
way regular folks can figure out what the "glorious leaders"
are up to & possibly allow others to understand & act upon
this info. Perhaps it could stave off some legal actions, in-
formi the public, provide a community service & be consid-
ered NEWS, or perhaps it suits the handful that run this
place just fine not publishing this info?

I live in Suwannee County and cannot understand how a
person can think it's better to throw their trash out of the
window than to throw it in the trash can at their home. They
should be ashamed of themselves but they probably'aren't. I
was talking with one person about it and he blamed the
"open container law" for why he throws his beer cans out on
the road. He says he doesn't want to be caught with any in
his car, that-would be against the la%%!! (I guess I need to
write another rant about drinking and driving, huh?) People
PLEASE, PLEASE take your trash home so we can keep
our community clean.

My wife and I moved to Live Oak about a year ago. Since
living here full time there have been NUMEROUS dogs
abandoned on the dirt roads in our neighborhood. I know
they are not lost dogs because a lost dog will wander, look-
ing for the way back home. These poor animals will turn up
on the road one day, looking expectantly at every vehicle
that comes along, hoping their owners have comeback. We'll
see them for about a week or more in the same place, every-
day looking thinner, sicker and more wary. Then we don't
see them anymore, which I assume means they have gone
into .the woods to die, We, and some of our neighbors try to
leave food and water when we can but it just breaks our
hearts to see it. I KNOW the people in this area are good
people so I don't understand how their conscience can let
them be so cruel to a poor animal like that. I hope they re-
member that God watches everything we do. Do you think
he approves?

Callers to 208-8314 may express their thoughts, good or
bad, 24/7 about community issues and politics, but not about
private individuals or businesses. If you prefer, you may e-
mail your comments to nf.editorial@gaflnews.com. You don't
have to give your name, and please, take 30 seconds or less -
for your comments. Let us know what's bugging you.

the state, Live
Oak and
Suwannee County dodged the -
tropical storm bullet. I have
fussed over the past about
rain missing our community.
It seemed as though showers
would move around or dry up BY SONNY
before reaching us. How
lucky we are to have that happen with Fay. I have
heard reports of upwards of eight to ten inches of rain
locally. We did receive some pretty heavy showers but
for the most part we were in cracks between the heavy
rain bands. We would have been in big trouble if we
received some of the rains others got during this tropi-
cal storm. The city did experience some minor street
flooding and power outages. I observed some downed
trees and plenty of fallen limbs. Sorry to say some
were our older Live Oak trees. Put your debris by the
road but don't obstruct traffic. We'll get to it as soon as
possible.
I must recognize and commend some in our commu-
nity for their concern and tireless efforts during this
storm event. Yes, this is their job but they went far and
beyond their job assignments. I recognize Johnny Woo-
ley, Kimberly Thomas, Sharon Hingson and other staff
and volunteers for their tireless service during Fay. I
was at the Emergency Operations Center on several oc-
casions and they were always there. They were vigilant
of the storm's progress and in touch with state emer-
gency agencies. These dedicated servants made prepa-
rations to call for outside assistance in the event it was
needed. Representatives from the Red Cross, Commu-
nity Emergency Response Team (CERT), Florida Na-
tional Guard and FPL among others were there to offer
assistance if needed.
I must also recognize City Administrator Bob Farley
for his service. He was at the EOC pretty much around
the clock. Bob monitored the progress of the storm, di-
rected activities of the city and coordinated activities
with other agencies. The city's new public works direc-
tor, Don McKenna, was also on the job watching over
the city. I recognize OMI for their efforts before, dur-
ing and after the storm. For days crews were out clean-
ing storm drains, ditches, picking up limbs and other
debris and sweeping the streets to help prevent stop-
pages in our storm-water system. City Hall was inun-
dated with calls asking questions concerning the storm.
I recognize staff for their efforts in keeping residents
informed. County crews and electrical power suppliers
were out taking care of business also.
The Live Oak Fire Department was also busy with
fallen trees, downed power lines and accidents. I
was out and about,in the,city on many occasions and
also monitored activities on the scanner. It sure was
hopping at the station, especially Friday night. The
department reported that 2,375 sand bags were dis-
tributed over a three-day period. Sandbags were pro-
vided to anyone that requested them. Nobody was
turned away. You didn't have to be a member of
Congress to get sandbags. Don't get rid of them just
yet. Hurricane season is just getting cranked up.
They are likely to be needed again. I would ask that
they-be put out of sight for aesthetic reasons but
close by for future use. I recognize Chief Croft,
Alan Bedenbaugh, the firefighters and volunteers, for
their tireless,efforts. I thank them for their concern
for the safety of the firefighters and volunteers espe-
cially since my grandson Brandon was out there vol-
unteering. The firefighters were very appreciative'to
those who brought food for them. A big THANK YOU
goes out to all that played a role in ministering to the
needs of our Suwannee County residents. A JOB
WELL DONE to all..Each resident might want to tip

I expect the mosquito prob-

The question of when Halloween will be observed
has already arisen. Halloween is Friday, October 31.
There is a home football game scheduled that night. I
have shied away from holding Halloween on a night
when there are unusual amounts of traffic on our
streets. This additional traffic and the excitement of the
game put our kids in greater peril. What do you think?
Call me personally or tell the girls answering the
phone. I can't believe Halloween candy and costumes
are already being advertised for sale. I think that's
pushing it a little. I wouldn't be surprised to see a Santa
popping up soon.
From all reports school got off, to a pretty smooth
,start. Students are back in the groove and teachers in
the grind. I wish everyone a successful school year.

ule for Labor Day, September 1. I promised you we
would do better in notifying you of the holiday
garbage collection schedule. Monday's garbage will be
picked upon Tuesday with Tuesday's collection taking
place on Wednesday with Thursday and Friday collec-
tions as usual. Have an enjoyable but safe Labor Day. I
think the name should be changed to Non Labor Day
since many are off from work. Remember to wear your
seat belts, please.
The first Annual Policeman's Ball was a very nice
affair and a great success. The event raised a lot of
money for the Special Education classes in our school
system. That was the purpose of the Ball bht some-
thing else happened that was also important. It provid-
ed an opportunity for upwards of 300 of our residents
and visitors to connect and socialize. There was a lot
of chit-chat everywhere. We sat with a couple that re-
cently moved to Live Oak from Lansing, Michigan.
They were very impressed with the Ball and our com-
munity. This was truly a community effort. Thanks to
everyone that played a role in this event.
The city of Live Oak's animal shelter has received a.
much neededupgrade. There was no electricity avail-
able to the shelter, which meant no lights, fans or air
conditioning for the office or cat house. Due to the
concern and efforts of Keith Leibfried and First Feder-
al Savings Bank, the shelter now has power, lights,
fans, air conditioning and even a small refrigerator.
Thank you, Keith and First Federal, for your generous
contribution.
Congratulations to all candidates, both successful
and unsuccessful, that vied for an elected seat. It takes.
courage to put yourself out there for public scrutiny. As
an elected servant and private citizen, I look forward to
working with the new boys and girls on the block.
Thanks to those that gave of themselves and their fami-
lies in serving the citizens of Suwannee County over
the past years. You are commended and your service
appreciated. I ask that political signs be removed, ex-
cept those candidates involved in the November elec-
,tion. Thanks!
Remember Millennium Nights Friday night. Come
on down and enjoy the music and fellowship.

Hugh Wendell Lewis
Jan. 20, 1937 -
Aug. 26, 2008

( ugh Wendell
Lewis, founder
'H and owner of
Lewis Oil Co., Inc., passed
away peacefully at home
on Aug. 26, 2008 at the age
of 71.
Wendell Lewis was born
Jan. 20, 1937 in Perry,
Florida, son of Suwannee
County Sheriff Hughie
Lewis and Virgie Slaughter
., Lewis. Mr. Lewis, known
to his friends as Wendell,
attended Suwannee High
School, where he was cap-
'tain of the Bulldog football
and basketball teams and
president of the "S" (Let--
termen's) Club. He contin--
ued his education at East
Tennessee State University,,
where he earned his Bache-.
lor's Degree in business fi-.
nance in 1959. While at the
University, he was a mem-
ber of the Phi Sigma Kappa
Fraternity as well as a re-
servist in the U.S. Army
and a member of ROTC.
For a number of years Mr.
Lewis also served as a
Suwannee County Deputy
Sheriff.


On Dec. 25, 1960, 24-
year-old Wendell married
Lynda Jualene O'Hara of
Live Oak, Florida. At that
time, Mr. Lewis was em-
ployed at the North Florida
Telephone Company
(ALLTEL). In .1964 he
started his professional ca-
reer in the petroleum indus-
try with Standard Oil of
Kentucky as an area sales
supervisor. After the Le-
wises settled in
Gainesville, Florida, Wen-
dell bought out the local
Standard Oil wholesale dis-
tributorship in 1971 where
he quickly established and
grew his market territory
from providing Standard
Oil Petroleum Products in
the city and county to cov-
er much of North Central
Florida. During this time
Standard Oil of Kentucky
and Standard Oil of Cali-
fornia merged to form
Chevron USA, which
Lewis Oil Company now
represents. Lewis Oil Com-
pany, with 'offices in
Gainesville and Palatka, is
one of the largest locally
owned businesses and is
active in numerous charita-
ble, civic and professional
organizations and ;causes.
The family continues to
own and operate Lewis Oil
Company, which is one of
the largest family owned
petroleum jobberships in
North Central Florida. Mr.
Lewis retired in 2001. His
children Wenda, Hugh and
Don Lewis are actively
keeping up the tradition
and expanding Lewis Oil
Co., Inc. and maintaining
their father's great service
and passion for the oil in-
dustry.


Wendell Lewis was a
champion of local business.
In 1980 he along with sev-
eral local jobberships chal-
lenged the city and coun-
ty's mandates concerning
underground storage tank
laws and won a benchmark
case before the Florida
Supreme Court. He was a
member of the Florida Pe-
troleum Marketers Associ-
ation Board of Directors
and was often seen in Talla-
hassee lobbying on the be-
half of small businesses.
Wendell was a member of
the University City Church
of Christ, as well as the
Masonic Lodge, Lions and
Elks Clubs. Mr. Lewis was
a Gator Scholarship Partner
and member of the Univer-
sity of Florida Presidents
Council and an avid fan of
Gator football and basket-
ball. One of his favorite un-
dertakings was to mentor
Gator athletes. There are
many former Gator athletes
who will fondly .remember
their college days because .
of Mr. Lewis.
Surviving Mr. Wendell
Lewis are his wife Jualene;
his three children, Wenda
Ann Lewis, Hugh.Marvin
Lewis and Don Winfield
Lewis, all of Gainesville,
Florida;,. his brother, C.

Dogs take on Dunnellon tonight in Kickoff Classic


Continued From Page 1A

Suwannee High head foot-
ball coach Tommy Cham-
bers. "(The game) will
give us a good idea where
we are at this stage."
Chambers described
Dunnellon as a good team
and he said the game
would help Suwannee
identify its weaknesses
and "kinks."
p" The 'Dogs recently com-
pleted three weeks of in-
tra-squad practice games.
"We've been beating on
each other for three'
weeks," Chambers said.
Chambers said his initial
concern is the number of
players who are starting
the season injured. Five
players, injured during
practice, will be unable to
L 1 play in the Kickoff Clas-


sic: linebackers Brandon
Kuykeridall (leg injury)
and William Kannady (an-
kle), offensive linemen
Cody Chauncey (shoulder)
and Riley Turner (separat-
ed shoulder) and defensive
lineman Tre Robinson
(broken arm).
"We can't afford any
more injuries," he said.
"This would set us back."
The injured team mem-
bers are expected to be
back on the field within a
few weeks. There are 37
players on the roster this
year, down from 42 in
2007.
The 'Dogs are a young
team this year, with only
10 seniors.
Chambers said though
many of his players are
young they are aggressive
and have a good attitude.

Attitude means as much as
talent, he said.,
"The younger kids are
responding well," he said,
adding fewer members on
the team means more play-


ing time for the players.
"We're. excited about, the
upcoming season," Cham-
bers said.
Chambers said though
the team has a tough


schedule this year he
hopes to make the play-
offs. Last year the 'Dogs
had a winning season (5-4)

years.

Is there a shelf life
for paint?


A. Yes, but it depends on the
A.e conditions under which it was
stored. If it's ever been frozen or if the
can was opened and had not been
properly closed before storing, your-
shelf life is shortened. Generally if it
smells funky, don't use it, if it smells
like paint and it brushes on OK then it
should be fine. If it's been sitting for
awhile you may want to strain it
through cheese cloth to get out any
lumps before using.

In the District 3 primary,
for county commissioner,
Andy Robinson, with 513

to thank those who voted
for Jerry Poole and Wendell
Hill and ask that they join
me in the November cam-
paign." Robinson will face
Republican incumbent Ivie
Fowler in November.
The closest contest was
the lone school board race
between incumbent Muriel
Owens and Jessie Philpot.
Owens won, 377-375.
"It was a very close race
and I want to thank the vot-
ers for coming out and giv-
ing me their support," said
Owens. "I am looking for-
ward to another four years
of success and I plan on


serving like in the past,
open and available."
Said Philpot, "I would
have loved to win. I thank
my campaign helpers and
the voters in the community
that supported me. I only
lost by two votes, so what
can I do. Life goes on and I
will continue to help make
Live Oak a better place to
live each day of my life."
In the non-partisan con-
test for Third Circuit Judge,
Group 4, Greg Parker car-
ried Suwannee County with
3,598 votes to 2,585 for
Thomas Stone and 1,340

ceived 20,224 votes (50.1
percent) circuit-wide to
Stone's 11,284 (27.9 per-
cent) and Craun's 8,871 (22
percent). Barring.any
change in the count, Parker,
by virtue of winning more
than 50 percent of the vote,
will take the seat of the re-
tiring John Peach.

ry for U.S. Congress, Dis-
trict 2, Mark Mulligan de-
feated Eddie Hendry in

Tropical storm/hurricane information sheet


Department of Health cautions floridians about mold in water-damaged buildings


As Floridians clean and repair their storm damaged
homes and buildings, the Florida Department of
Health (DOH) urges the public to take precautionary
measures to avoid indoor air quality problems. Mois-
ture that enters buildings from leaks or flooding accel-
erates mold growth. Molds can cause disease, trigger
allergic reactions and continue to damage materials
long after the storm. Failure to control moisture and
mold can present short and long- term health risks.
To protect against health risks
associated with mold:
Remove standing water from your home or office.
Remove wet materials.


If mold growth has already occurred, carefully re-
move or clean the moldy material.
Consider using personal protective equipment when
cleaning or removing mold gloves, goggles and an
N-95 particle respirator (found at most local hardware
stores). Check with a health care provider before wear-
ing a respirator. Do not use a respirator if you have
heart disease or chronic lung disease such as asthma or
emphysema.
Individuals with known mold allergies or asthma
should not clean or remove moldy materials.
Remember to not mix cleaners and disinfectants, as
hazardous gases may produce hazardous chemical re-


actions. Read and follow.label instructions carefully.
Open windows and doors to provide plenty of fresh
air.
For more information about indoor air quality and
mold growth, contact your local county health depart-
ment, the Florida Department of Health's Indoor Air
Toxics Hotline toll-free at 800-543-8279 or visit the
Department of Health Web site at www.doh.state.fl.us
and select "mold" from the subject list.

342-3557.

Health risks after the storm


Food safety: Preventing
food-borne diseases
Individuals should not eat any
food that may have come into
contact with contaminated water
from floods or tidal surges.
Commercially prepared cans
of food should not be eaten if
there is a bulging or opening on:
the can or the screw caps, soda
pop bottle tops or twist-caps.
Undamaged, commercially
canned foods can be savyd if
you remove the labels and then
disinfect the cans in a bleach so-
lution. Use 7t cup of bleach in
one gallon of water; 're-label the
cans including expiration date
and type of food. Assume that
home-canned food is unsafe.
Infants should be fed only pre-
mixed canned baby formula. Do
not use powdered formulas pre-
pared with treated water. Use
boiled water when preparing for-
mula.
Frozen and refrigerated foods
can be unsafe after a hurri-


quitoes, the public should re-
main diligent in their personal
mosquito protection efforts.
These should include the "5
D's" for prevention:
Dusk and Dawn Avoid being
outdoors 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 mosqui-
toes, repellents containing DEET
(N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide, or
N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenza-
mide) are recommended. Pi-
caridin and oil of lemon euca-
lyptus are other repellent op-
tions.
Drainage Check around your
home to rid the area of standing
water, which is where mosqui-
toes 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 recommended. Other
potential mosquito repellents, as
reported by the Centers for Dis-
ease Control and Prevention
(CDC) in April 2005, contain pi-
caridin or oil of lemon eucalyp-
tus. These products are generally
available at local pharmacies.
Look for active ingredients on
the product label.
Apply insect repellent to ex-
posed skin or onto clothing, but
not under clothing.
In protecting children, read la-
bel instructions to be sure the re-
pellent is age-appropriate. Ac-
cording to the CDC, mosquito
repellents containing oil of
lemon eucalyptus should not be
used on children under the age
of 3 years. DEET is not recom-


mended on children younger
than 2 months old.
Infants should be kept indoors
or mosquito netting should be
used over carriers when mosqui-
toes are present.
Avoid applying repellents to
the hands of children. Adults.
should apply repellent first to
their own hands and then trans-
fer it to the child's skin and
clothing.
If additional protection is ned-
essary, apply a permethrin repel-
lent directly to your clothing.
Again, always follow the manu-
facturer's directions.
Tips on Eliminating Mosquito
Breeding Sites'
Elimination of breeding sites
is one of the keys to prevention.
. Clean out eaves, troughs and
gutters.
Remove old tires or drill holes
to drain those used in 'play-
grounds.
Turn over or remove empty


plastic pots.
Pick up all beverage contain-
ers and cups.
Check tarps on boats or other
equipment that may collect wa-
ter.
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 obstruc-
tions in drainage ditches that
prevent the flow of water.
For further information,' con-
tact a local county health de-
partment or visit

www.FloridaDisaster.org.

cane. When the power is
out, refrigerators will keep
foods cool for only about
four hours. Thawed and re-
frigerated foods should be
thrown out after four
hours.
Sanitation and Hygiene:
Preventing waterborne ill-
ness
Basic hygiene is very
important during this
emergency period. Always
wash your hands with soap
and water that has been
boiled or disinfected be-
fore eating, after toilet use,
after participating in
cleanup activities and after
handling articles contami-
nated by floodwater or
sewage.
Flooding that occurs af-,
ter the hurricane may mean
that water contains fecal
matter from sewage sys-
tems, agricultural and in-
dustrial waste and septic
tanks. If you have open
cuts or sores exposed to
the floodwater, keep, them
as clean as possible by
washing them with soap
and disinfected or boiled
water. Apply antibiotic
ointment to reduce the risk
Of infection. If a wound or
sore develops redness,
swelling or drainage, see a
physician.
Do not allow children to
play in floodwater. They
can be exposed to water
contaminated with fecal
matter. Do not allow chil-
dren to play with toys that
have been in floodwater
until the toys have been
disinfected. Use i cup of
' bleach in one gallon of wa-
ter to disinfect toys and
other items.
Power Outages: Prevent-
ing fire hazards
Using battery-powered
lanterns and flashlights is
preferable to using candles.
If you must use candles,
make sure you put them in
safe holders away from
curtains, paper, wood or
other flammable items.
Clearing Standing
Water: Preventing
mosquito-borne Illness
Heavy rains and flood-
ing can lead to an increase
in mosquitoes. Mosquitoes
are most active at sunrise
.and sunset. Public health
authorities will be working
actively to control the
spread of any diseases
transmitted by mosquitoes.
To protect against mos-.

Cavaliers face tall order


southern California will begin its quest for another
national championship Saturday afternoon at the
University of Virginia's Scott Stadium.
Former NFL head coach Pete Carroll, who arrived in
Los Angeles following the 2000 season, has built the
Trojan program back into a national powerhouse.'
Southern California has compiled a 70-8 record, won six
conference championships, produced three Heisman
Trophy winners and claimed a pair of national champi-
onships during the past six seasons..
It will take a lot more than home cooking and good
fortune for the Cavaliers to pull a monumental upset

Tropical storm/hurricane

information sheet

Home clean-up.

after the storm
After a storm or hurricane has passed, failure to re-
move contaminated materials can cause health risks.
If there is flooding along with a hurricane, water
must be removed as quickly as possible since it may
contain material from overflowing sewage systems.
If there has been a backflow of sewage irito the
houte the fo1owing measures should, be',aken rto, en-
sure proper clean-up:
Walls, hard-surfaced floors and many other house-
hold surfaces must be cleaned with soap and water
and disinfected with a solution of 1 cup of bleach to
five gallons of water.
Thoroughly disinfect surfaces that come in contact
with food and children's play areas.
Wash all linens and clothing in hot water or dry-
clean.
Items that cannot be washed or dry-cleaned, such
as mattresses and upholstered furniture, must be air
dried-in the sun and sprayed thoroughly with a disin-
fectant.
Steam-clean all carpeting.
Fiberboard, fibrous insulation and disposable filters
that have contacted floodwater or sewage should be
replaced in your heating and air-conditioning system.
Wear rubber boots and waterproof gloves during
clean-up.
Be careful about mixing household cleaners and
disinfectants, as combining certain types of products
can produce toxic fumes and result in injury or death.
It can be difficult to throw away items in a home,
particularly those with sentimental value. However,
keeping certain items
soaked by sewage or flood-
waters may be unhealthy.
In general, materials that
cannot be thoroughly
cleaned and dried within .
24-48 hours should be dis- ;." t m
carded. .

FASCAR cancels all racing this weekend


In the wake of Tropical Storm Fay and
hardships that are being felt throughout our
State, New Smyrna Speedway and Orlando
Speedworld have decided to stay closed for
this weekend, August 29-30, so that we
may focus on helping our neighbors in
need.
Although both tracks have come through
the storm relatively unscathed, there are
many in our community that have not been
so fortunate. The latest news reports indi-
cate that the St. Johns River is still rising,
so we are not out of the woods yet. And


the forecast is for more rain throughout the
week.
Robert Hart, owner of both tracks, ex-
pressed deep concern for all of the Racers,
Staff Members, and Fans that have been
adversely effected, and would like every-
one to have ample time to rebuild and take
care of their families and homes, before fo-
cusing on racing.
We look forward to seeing everyone
back at Orlando Speedworld on Sept. 5 for
the TBARA Winged Sprints, as well as,
Sportsman, Super Stocks, Mini-Stocks and


ABC Towing Strictly Stocks.
New Smyrna Speedway will resume rac-
ing on Sept. 6 with Fan Appreciation Night
presented by Bright House Networks, fea-
turing $5.00 General Admission and the
Super Stock 50. Also in action will be the
Late Models, Pro-Trucks, Sportsman,
Mini-Stocks and Strictly Stocks.
We thank everyone for your understand-
ing, and invite everyone that has not been
effected, to reach out to those who have, so
we can all get back.on track as soon as
possible.

Tropical Storm Fay Information Sheet

Flood waters pose health risks


Tropical storms and hurricanes
can cause flooding. Although
skin contact with flood waters'
does not, by itself, pose a serious
health risk, health hazards are a
concern when waters become
contaminated. Flood waters may
contain fecal material, associated
bacteria and viruses.
DOH recommends the follow-
ing precautions to prevent possi-
ble illness from flood waters:
Basic hygiene is critical. Wash
your hands with soap and water
that has been boiled or disinfect-
- .. .. ed before preparing or eating--,
food, after toilet use, after partic-
ipating in flood cleanup activities
and after handling articles conta-
minated with flood water or
sewage.
Avoid eating or drinking any-
thing that has been contaminated
with flood waters.
Do not wade through standing
water. If you do, bathe and put
on clean clothes as soon as possi-


Avoid contact with flood wa-
ters if you have open cuts or
sores. If you have any open cuts
or sores and cannot avoid contact
with flood waters, keep them as
clean as possible by washing
well with soap to control infec-
tion. If a wound develops red-
ness, swelling, or drainage, seek
immediate medical attention.
Residents who sustain lacerations
and/or puncture wounds and have


not had a tetanus vaccination
within the past 10 years require a
tetanus booster.
If there is a backflow of
sewage into your house, wear
rubber boots and waterproof
gloves during cleanup. Remove
and discard absorbent household
materials, such as wallcoverings,
cloth, rugs and sheetrock. Clean
walls and hard-surfaced floors
.with soap and water and disinfect
with a solution of 1/4 cup of'
bleach to one gallon of water.*
Thoroughly disinfect food con-,
i otact surfaces: (counter tops;, re.L
frigerators, tables) and areas
where small children play. Wash
all linens and clothing in hot wa-
ter. Air dry Uarger items in the
, sun and spray them with a disin-
fectant. Steam clean all carpet-
ing.
If your plumbing is functioning
slowly or sluggishly, you should:
Conserve water as much as
possible; the less water used the
less sewage the septic tank must
process. Minimize use of your
washing machine. Go to a laun-
dromat. Rental of a portable toi-
let for a
tempo-
rary peri- Simple to 1 ail
od m ay -
be anoth- 0 A
er option. 0
Do not
have the
septic i


tank pumped. Exceptionally high
water tables might crush a septic
tank that was pumped dry. If the
fundamental problem is high
ground water, pumping the tank
does nothing to solve that prob-
lem.
If you cannot use your plumb-
ing without creating a sanitary
nuisance, i.e., without sewage be-
ing exposed, consider moving to
a new location until conditions
improve.
Do not have the septic tank
and drainfield repaired until the
ground has dried. Often systems
are completely functional when
unsaturated conditions return.
Any repair must be permitted and
inspected by your county health
department.
For further information, please
contact your local county health
department or visit

www.FloridaDisaste org.

Tommy Lee Jones is riv-
eting in this newly re-
leased "director's cut" of
the acclaimed TV movie
from 1982, which depicts
the last days of convicted
murderer Gary Gilmore,
who insisted on the death
" penalty rather than face
life in prison. Adapted
from the Pulitzer Prize-
winning novel of the same
name by Norman Mailer,
it's a sobering look at a
doomed man whose death-
watch became a national
media event. No bonus
features, but it's well
worth the price to watch
Jones' brilliant perfor-
mance, a memorable, mid-
career notch in one of Hol-
lywood's most solid acting
belts.

Saving Grace-Season 1
DVD (retail $49.98)Amazon





















Holly Hunter stars in this acclaimed network TV series as a
hard-living Oklahoma City police detective who gets a bit of
divine intervention when her messed-up life hits rock bottom.
Unlike your typical cop show, Saving Grace tackles issues of
theology as well as criminology in a world that doesn't al-
ways have easy answers for tough questions. In addition to all
13 episodes from the 2007 season, this collection includes be-
hind-the-scenes featurettes and commentary, plus a music
video from Everlast, who performs the show's theme song.

A call to adventure

Over a century ago, in 1900, Sir Ernest Shackleton,
the British explorer, placed the following n,
advertisemenitin'London newspapers: .

MEN WANTED FOR HAZARDOUS
JOURNEY.
Small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete
darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful.
Honor and recognition in case of success. ; '


I.


The response was overwhelming, though the
expedition failed to reach its goal of getting to
the South Pole-;Today, Ernest Shackleton is.
certainly not household name, and probably
only a handful 6f people remember the names of
any of' thenmen ho accompanied him. But, as
then, men and.w, omen the world over still long, for '
adventure, Vehn if it is an adventure as drm
seemingly m aningless as getting to the South Y
Pole. And, if we revere those who risk life and limb
to do what lias never been done before, then how
much more should we honor those who risk their s
lives to feed the hungry, heal the sick, and spread the' '
gospel? Perhaps it was the adventure and austerity of
the call to spread the gospel which made it attractive
to the early Christians. And likewise even in these 1
days of luxury ynd ease, we too need a similar call to
austerity,'sacrifice, and adventure..

He charged them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, M
no bag, no money in their belts; but to wear sandals and not put on two tunics.
S R.s.VMark 6:8 i

N SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT/LIVE OAK










RELIGION


Don't be fooled


David H. Matier,
Doctor of Pastoral '
Counseling

Very few Chris-
tians would deny ,
that the practices
of the world have
become more and
more openly sin- .
ful. But have you
ever asked, "Have
I been deceived?"
The Bible says to
"exhort one another daily, while
it is called To day; lest any of
you be hardened through the de-
ceitfulness of sin" (Hebrews
3:13).
The reason this question should
be asked, if churches and para
church groups haven't already
been deceived, is why vsoema is
allowed in our midst that'b"
cent forefathers would not have
allowed? All of a sudden dancing
is a perfectly normal' activity by
members of churches where it
would not have been heard of,
only 50 years ago.
Alcohol would never have been
used as beverage by members of
such and such church but now
members of that congregation
even sell it in their establish-
ments. Going to the movies used
to be forbidden but now there is
not restraint what has hap-
Opned? What ig the difference?
Have the movies gotten better?
Or have Christians been "hard-
ened by the deceitfulness of sin?"
I am not arguing for or against,
but I am arguing for Christians to
open their eyes and notice how
they've changed and not all for
the better!
It seems that every time the
world takes another step closer to
the falling off point the Christ-
ian community, instead of hold-
ing true to the Lord, compromis-
es a little more. Instead of re-
maining true to Ggd's Word
(many have even given up on that
,-saying. "We can't understand the
'thees' and the 'thous' Grand-
pa & Grandma understood!")
they have done their best to water
it down to suite themselves.
They have done their best to
get rid of any pastors who would
dare stand up and preach the
Truth from God's Word opting
for a watered down variety. And I
don't mean a hate messages from
the pulpit but I do mean the Truth
preached with love and concern
for a lost and dying world.


S....... '" Remember the
4 saying that if you
put a frog in a boil-
ing pot of water he
will jump out but if
you put him in and
Jf. slowly turn up the
,heat he'll sit there
until he cooks. That
is what has hap-
pened to many
Christians. If you
would have
dumped today's
philosophies on them suddenly
they wouldn't have taken it but it
has come a little at a time while
they have sat back on their leas.
If you would have tried pumping
the stuff into the American living
ro,qm that comes into it via TV
today just a few years ago there
would have been an uproar. There
was a time when the actors and
actresses didn't sleep in the same
beds. I love Lucy was the first
TV show that was allowed to
even show a pregnant woman and
little by little the restraints have
been taken away. Some of you
will not only watch daily TV
shows hosted by professing ho-
mosexuals you will sit and watch
with your children at your side!
And then the vulgarity! Just re-
cently I had a young man tell me
that some sort of class at the local
high school is using the correct
terms for the male and female
anomy. This writer doesn't have a
problem with that but then he
said the teacher uses vulgar
terms. Doesn't the teacher know
that there is a correct anatomical
name for the part of the body too
he doesn't have to use vulgari-
ty in front of a group of high
school age students to get a point
across.
People that wouldn't let anyone
swear in their house let the elec-
tric box swear at them, in front of
their wives and children and any-
one else who happens to be there
all the time now! Christians have
Been' and are-allowing' themselves
to be "hardened through the de-
ceitfulness of sin" (Hebrews
3:13). Instead of holding its
ground the Church is where the
world was 20 or so years ago and
as the world goes farther to the
left it seems that all too many
Christians, duped by sin, follow.
Give us some Christians that will
hold true to the Truth and not al-
low themselves to be deceived by
the sin that so abounds all around
them these days.


Derek Maul


This past r
weekend I had
an amazing ex-
perience that
helped me real-
ize how power-
ful connections
between people
can be when we
share a common '*-
faith.
I had been in-
vited to speak at
a conference at Brandon's First
United Methodist Church. My
forty-five minute lecture fo-
cused on the effectiveness of
small-communities within a
larger body, small-group dy-
namics in the context of faith.
One of my illustrations con-
cerned a difficult time in the
life of my family. My wife and
I had met every Sunday
evening with a small group of
friends, all parents of teens.
We shared our concerns, strug-


The 11th Annual Autumn
Artfest will be held at the
Suwannee River Regional Li-
brary in Live Oak Sept. 7-19.
Presented by the Live Oak
Artists Guild, the show fea-
tures the work of talented
artists from North Florida and
South Georgia.
A reception will be held
Sept. 7 from 2-4 p.m. to kick
off the exhibit. At the event
artists winning awards will be


gled together, sup-
ported and encour-
aged one another,
and prayed dili-
gently.
It was this
covenant of prayer,
S I said, that not
's only held us to-
gether but worked
real healing in our
relationships. I
concluded my pre-
sentation with a
photograph taken
at my daughter's wedding, a
pivotal moment in our return
to wholeness.
Later, when I was parked
behind a table for the perfunc-
tory book-signing, a man in-
troduced himself and said his
son had been one of my
daughter's high-school friends.
His name was Don, and he had
observed our struggles through
the eyes of his child.
"Did your daughter.ever get
her voice back?" he asked.


honored for their talent.
The show is open during
regular library hours. We en-
courage our guests to vote for
their favorite piece of art. An
Adults Choice and a Children's
Choice award will be present-
ed to the artists at the end of
the show.
Every year school children
are brought to the, show and
given a guided tour, lectures on
art and a time of open discus-


"Yes," I replied; "she even
sang a song to her husband at
the wedding reception."
Don wanted to know the
name of the song. "God
Blessed the Broken Road (that
led me straight to you)," I
said.
Then, and here's the'point of
this column, the man's eyes
filled up with tears and he
cried without shame. We did-
n't even know each other we
were standing in a hall filled
with people yet we shared
this bond of common faith and
every potential barrier was
broken down.
Not only did Rebekah and I
have our, small group at
church, there had been other
people in our community pray-
ing. People we didn't even
know were holding up our
small family, praying their
hearts out and loving with the
kind of love that God works
on this world through faithful
believers.


sion. Last year more than
1,000 school children attended
the Autumn Artfest.
The Live Oak Artists Guild
was founded in 1980 and is a
non-profit organization whose
objective and purpose is to ad-
vance the skill, knowledge and
appreciation of art among its
members, the general public,
as well as offer assistance, and
encouragement to'area stu-
dents.

ous about what part of the world your family
really came from?
If so, you're not alone. Millions of people are
asking the same questions and trying to find the
answers.

A success story
Amanda Bloom, of Huntington Beach,
Calif., heard a family mystery.story
from her mother that she just had to
solve. Amanda's grandfather served in
World War II. While he was gone, his
first wife placed their.son and two "
daughters in .ah orphanage. Ananda's
mother, born from a second marriage,
didn't find, out about these siblings
until she was a teenager and had always
wondered what had become of them.
As a present for her mother's 60th
birthday, Amanda began the search to
find them.
She started by joining Ancestry.com,
the largest online source of family
history information. She was able to .
learn some research techniques and Brother and sister David
started searching records in the 26,000 Varella spent a lifetime
databases of information. "I obtained together by Amanda lm
copies of my grandfather's naval research
records, confirming his children's birth
names and birth dates," she said. She
then found birth and death records on
the site and used census records to learn more about the family.
This information led her to a long-lost living relative.
"I made my mother's lifelong dream of knowing her siblings come
true," said Amanda. "I found her.brother living in the Midwest.
I was a little apprehensive to contact him, but when I did, it was
one big cry fest!" He. told Amanda that she had filled a void that
had been with him his entire life. He was only six-years old when
the family was split up, and had spent his life wondering what had
happened to his sisters. Together, they later found his sisters and
have all since met and grown very close.

What's your story?
So what secrets are waiting to be discovered about the people
who made you who you are today? "Our roots influence us iri
ways we can't even imagine," said Loretto Szucs, a genealogist
at Ancestry.com. "Studying your family history actually lets you
discover more about yourself."
With online databases and research tools, it's easier than ever
to start putting the pages of your family story together, preserving.
your heritage and passing it on to future generations.

Create a family tree.
You can easily create a family tree online with what you already
know. Begin with yourself and add your parents and grandparents.
Record each person's name, birthplace, birth date, death place and
death date. If you don't know the exact information, take your best
guess vague clues can lead to amazing finds. Family members
maybe able to help as well.

Search historical records.
Online historical records are full of clues that connect individuals
and events in your family history. From military records to census
records to old newspaper archives, there's an entire host of resources
available when researching your family tree.


There's a wealth of data available online, but you
need to know where to look. According to Szucs.
records such as these are constantly updated with
new information.
* Census records can tell you where your ancestors
lived, where they were born, what.their occupation
was, names of family members and other clues to
the family puzzle.
* Newspaper collections carry birth, marriage and
death nonces, all of which provide valuable family
information. You may also find your ancestor's
name mentioned in legal or social notices, articles
or advertisements.
* Military records also hold important clues. You can
search for your family military heroes in records
from the Revolutionary War to the Vietnam War.
Draft registration cards hold personal statistics
such as height, weight, and eye color. Service
records tell you what unit your relative served
in. and whether they were injured or received

room's family history


helping to preserve them for future
generations. Older relatives, in parti-
cular, can often provide a wealth of
information, stories, pictures and
other family heirlooms.


Collaborate with a
community.
Search other peoples' family trees
and communicate with them.through online message boards or other
social networks. You can share information, ask questions, receive
help and add new and surprising details to your family story.

Share your discoveries.
Share the excitement by inviting family members and friends to
view your tree. Then encourage them to add old photos, stories or
historical records to help your tree grow even more.

We're all reflections of the ancestors who came before us from
our natural talents to the places we live and traditions we honor.
Understanding our ancestors truly helps us understand ourselves.

www.Ancestry.com.


Branching Out:

Getting the Kids Involved
Involving children in your genealogy research is a great
family project. Some activities include:
* Let them play detective by helping you find old
photographs or mementos in the attic or basement.
* Challenge computer-savvy kids to use their skills to
help research online resources for more family clues.
* Ask children to interview a grandparent with questions
such as what they did for a living, memories of favorite
relatives or what they did for fun when they were
their age.


Part of the joy of tracing your family roots is
customizing and sharing the information with
others. Create a digital photo book that tells
your family story in an easily assessable way.


A Growing Trend
Family history research is one of the fastest-growing
hobbies in America. In fact, nearly 80 percent of
Americans are interested in or are actively research-
ing'their family history. And getting started is easy.
With the help of the Internet, you can be on your
way in just minutes:
By using a family history research site such as
Ancestry.com, in just five to 10 minutes you can
begin your family tree, upload photos and start
uncovering hints that can link you to valuable clues
in resources such as census and military records.
In one to two hours, you can complete a three-
generation family tree, create a book using your
online family tree, and print and frame a set of
"family photos and records from the site.
* In just one weekend, you can create a full memorial
page for a loved one.
