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.

EXTENSION UPDATE



Nutrition labels


made easy!

By Cathy Rogers,
Sunwannee County)
'Extension, Family and
S Consumer Sciences Agent

SWhen you go grocery
shopping, do you read the
Nutrition Facts labels? If
S'not, it may be because
S*' ," 1 they seem confusing or
S'because you don't know
Where to begin. The
USDA created Nutrition
Facts labels to provide in-
formation for making food
choices that contribute to a healthy diet. They are real-
ly not that hard to understand if you know a few tips.
The first thing to know is that the most important
place to start is at the very top of the label. The serving
size is the first thing listed and is vital to know because
'if your serving size is different from the stated size;
none of the rest of the information will be accurate for
you. For example, if the serving size on the label says
three cookies and you eat six cookies, you have to dou-
ble the calories, and all of the nutrients Both the
Good and bad. On the other hand, if the serving size
Says five pieces of candy and you only have one, you
can divide the calories (and everything else) by five.
The next thing to look at is the number of servings

per container. Most people will buy a bottle of soda or
sports drink and enjoy the whole bottle at one sitting.
If you look at the label though, you will find that the
20 oz. bottle is equal to two and a half servings not
so bad if it is a diet drink but if it's not, that is a whole
lot of calories! For items that list the serving size in
ounces, it is helpful to use the number of serving per
container to determine how big the serving size really
is.
Calories will be the next item listed and is worth not-
ing because they are the measure of energy supplied by
the food. Changes in body weight ultimately come
down to calories in (food calories) versus calories out
(burned during activities). If you eat 100 more food
calories a day than you burn, you'll gain about 1 pound
in a month. That's about 12 pounds in a year. The Nu-
trition Facts label is based on a 2,000 calorie daily diet
which may be too many calories for smaller or less ac-
tive people.

Most of the rest of the information on the label is
listed in percent of Daily Value or % DV. This means
that it is a comparison of one serving of food to the to-
tal daily diet (based on 2,000 calories). It can help you
determine if a food is high or low in a nutrient. All you
have to remember is that 5% is low and 20% is high.
For fats, cholesterol and sodium, aim for low amounts.
For Vitamins A and C, calcium, iron, and fiber, look
for higher amounts. If there is any Trans fat in the
product it is best to put it back on the shelf since Trans
fats increase the risk of heart disease.
If you have medical problems with dietary restric-
tions you might want to look more closely at certain
nutrients but for most people, these simple tips will
help in choosing foods right for a healthy lifestyle.

IF I KNEW
If I knew it would be the last time.
That I'd see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in o
more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.
If I knew it would be the last time that I see you'
walk qut the door, I would give you a hug and kiss
and call youback for one more.
If I'knew it would be the last time I'd hear your voice
lifted up in praise, I would video tape each action
and word, so I could play them back day after day. Carolyn Bowers
If I knew it would be the last time, I could spare an
extra minute to stop and say "I love you," instead
of assuming you would KNOW I do. .
If I knew it would be the last time I would be there
to share your day, Well I'm sure you'll have so many
more, so I can let just this one slip away.
For surely there's always tomorrow to make up for
an oversight, and we always get a second chance *
to make everything just right. Michael Johns, Sr.
There will always be another, day to say "I love you."
But there wasn't another day:
We regret that we let the time go by without doing
and saying the things we wanted you to know.
You will always be in our hearts, in our souls,. -

We know you're now up in Heaven
As we're reminded day by day
We just can't stop thinking about you
And all the things you used to do and say
We try to hide our heartache
And say that-we're just fine
We go about our usual life...
With everyone around us being oh, so'kind.
People keep trying to ease our troubled mind
Many try to comfort and tell us'time will heal
But we know that time can't erase the memories
Or the undying love for you that we still feel
We know you truly loved us
And don't want us shedding tears
We know you'll wait for us in Heaven
If it takes a hundred years
And even though we're still on Earth,
-We miss you more each day
How can we look forward to tomorrow
When we still can't accept today?
How can we mend our broken hearts
When our loved one has gone away?
Only God can help us through this
And oh, how much we pray....
They think our day now starts without you
And that we are far apart
But you will always be a part of us
You now live within our heart.
Noone can ever take your place
We've stored the memories of your love
They are our only comfort until we can join you
For all eternity in Heaven above...
We love you and miss you dearly

Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Com-
missioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging resi-
dents to take advantage of
the free credit reports
from each of the three
major credit reporting
agencies. He says review-
ing personal financial in-
formation is a good way
to start the year.
"People have spent the
past month hectically
shopping for the holidays,
possibly without paying
as much attention to re-
ceipts and charge card
statements as they usually
do," Bronson said. "So it
is a good time to take a
close look at your credit
report to see if any fraud-
ulent activity has oc-
curred."
Since 2005, an amend-
ment to the federal Fair
Credit Reporting Act has
allowed people to get one
free credit report annually
from each of the three
credit reporting agencies.

A credit report contains
information about a con-
sumer's credit history, in-
cluding a listing of all
credit cards, whether bills
have been paid on time,
and whether the consumer
has been sued, arrested or
filed for bankruptcy. Na-
tional consumer reporting
agencies sell the informa-
tion to credit card compa-
nies and Other creditors,
insurers, employers and
businesses that use it to
determine whether to ap-
prove an application for
credit, insurance, loans
and employment. A poor
Credit history can result in
rejection of credit or high-
er interest rates on a loan.
Bronson recommends
that consumers get one of
the reports every four
months to monitor their
credit throughout the year.
He says that enables peo-
ple to quickly report any,
mistakes or fraudulent ac-
tivity, such as a credit
card obtained in a con-
sumer's name by someone
else.
"When someone has .
been victimized by an
identity thief, if they
catch the problem early,
they can minimize the
damage to their credit,"
Bronson said.
Bronson is also remind-
ing consumers that they
can put a security freeze
on their credit reports.
While there is a small fee
for the service, the freeze
prevents access to a con-
sumer's credit report
without their authoriza-
tion. Once a freeze is in
place, a criminal would be
unable to open a charge
card or other account in
the consumer's name
without their knowledge.
A recent AARP study
found that 81 percent of
older consumers are con-
cerned about becoming a
victim of identity theft but
less than one-third were
aware of security freeze
options.
The three major credit
reporting agencies are
Equifax, Experian and
TransUnion. To obtain a
free copy of reports from
these agencies, visit
www.AnnualCreditRe-
port.com. People should
be wary of any other sites
which claim to offer free
reports but steer con-
sumers to sites that offer
services by subscription
or for a fee. Consumers
can also order their re-
ports by calling toll-free
1-877-322-8228.

A rant, a


rave and a


reminder

Here's a reader-submitted rant we found worthy
ofspecial mention:
"To the Rant & Rave contributor who belittled
the Teacher of the Year for using a 'split infinitive'
in a conversation with a reporter. You disgust me!
You should be ashamed of yourself!"
The ranter then cites Star Trek ("To boldly go
where no man has gone before...") as an instance of
a grammatical "error" that no one really seems to
mind. (The infinitive "to go" is "split" because
the word "boldly" has been inserted into the middle
of it.)
"Get a life!" concludes the ranter. "Leave these
People. alone who are contributing to society!"
We're not quite that worked up over it, but we do
agree that the rules of English grammar and usage
were designed to facilitate communication, not sti-
fle it.
In that vein, consider Churchill's famous re-
sponse to those who would refuse him the right to
end a sentence with a preposition: "That's the sort
of nonsense up with which I will not put."


* *


Good job, county commission, for refusing to
spend $400,000 on a piece of land the property ap-
praiser's office says is worth less than half that. De-
bate the merits of the Lake Louise project all you
want, but the original appeal of the proposed boat
ramp, park, etc. was that it wouldn't cost us a dime.
County Commission Chairman Jesse Caruthers
warned some time back that this "free" project
could end up costing us plenty. Thanks, Jesse, Ivie
Fowler and Wesley Wainwright for voting against
this unnecessary, and unwise, expansion of a pro-
ject that could still very easily get out of hand.

in 1991. At what level will the state
and the feds take them off the en-
dangered and threatened lists?...
They won't tell you because the en-
vironmentalists want it to stay on
the listing FOREVER; no matter
how much population growth there
is! Can you imagine what the water-
ways would be like with say, 25,000
manatees in them? You can forget
about boating, swimming, fishing,
etc. in those waters as the mantees
will have 'protection' from the gov-
ernment!

I've been laid off from my job
since Aug of 08, and now that the
economy is worse and more people
are losing their jobs as well, I see
little help from our local govern-
ment and local corporations for job
openings. So, here's how I see it:
The economy is only going to get
worse, Barack Obama is NO messi-
ah figure at all and there's little he
can do about our situation, we as
Americans are on the brink of disas-
ter as we just try to survive. All of
us need to stop putting our faith and
trust in government and trust in God
instead. We are all on the verge of
another great depression, and the
falling of the global economy is one
of the first signs of the Tribulation.
We all need to stick together and
help one another out, regardless of
skin color. God Bless.

I'm responding to a remark made
about Pilgrim's Pride mess and find-
ing a coach. I can't believe that you
are more worried about finding a
coach than the job losses in our
community. Pilgrim's Pride is one of
the largest companies in the sur-
rounding counties that employ
many citizens for various jobs. I am
a grower, and I, appreciate the De-
mocrat covering the important stuff,
PILGRIMS PRIDE! Who is worried
about the coach any way? Does he
help put food on your table?

This is in response to the individ-
ual in the January 30 Rant '& Rave
section who felt a "Teacher of the
Year" would know not to use a split
infinitive. It seems to me that this
individual would be better served to
trade in his/her jealousy or animosi-

ty for a strong dose of appreciation

sure that the "Teacher of the Year" is

individuals complaint. If you .read
the information about a split infini-
tive according to Wikipedia you will
find that most experts on language
now agree that the split infinitive is
now appropriate. Just for future ref-
erence, lets spend less time worry-
ing about a split infinitive and more
time deciding whether or not to post
a Senseless Rant.

I'd like to offer a suggestion re-
garding the post office stopping de-
livering mail on Saturdays. Obvi-
ously, this is a very bad idea for
everyone concerned. We could have
the post office up the rate for all the
third class mail and JUNK that lit-
ters all our mailboxes every day,
mail thgt we didn't order and don't
want, and nation-wide, that would
probably go a long way toward
helping their deficit. Why does our
first class rate continue to go up,
and the junk mail people still get
low rates for sending mail that no-
body wants to get? Do they really
think people read that' nonsense?
My wastebaskets are stuffed with it
every day. Let the businesses that
send this unwanted mail pay dearly
for the privilege of annoying every-
body!

The person who wrote or called in
last week suggesting the school
board needs to raise the millage rate
to increase revenue for education is
well intentioned,. but missed the
mark. Raising the village rate
would put an additional heavy bur-
den on property owners. A more fair
and equitable solution would be to
set a head tax at the beginning of the
school year for each child regis-
tered. The reasoning behind this
suggestion is that many people who
don't own property have children in
school and pay nothing.. The flip
side is many property owners have
no children, have never had any, and
won't have any, yet have to pay an
annual tax for education.

Kudos to the zoning committee
for killing that ill-placed race track
in the Fort Uniion area. However, it
is still illegally located on the prop-
erty. At the lengthy meeting on said
zoning, it was amply noted that oth-
er similar shut down race tracks in
Florida were ordered to remove the
tracks and to restore the land to its
original shape and contour. This
track also should be so governed.
Our county commission should see
that this is done ASAP.

to put an end to this type of thing.
I'll bet them salaries are little com-
pared to some of the local clergy.

I am glad to read about the little
girl that survived the Christmas Day
car accident on 29th Road. It's good
to hear that news. I don't recall read-
ing in the Suwannee Democrat the
possible causes of the accident. The
reason I mention that is because I
believe that 29th Road is one of the
most dangerous roads in Suwannee
County and I am wondering if the
condition of the road contributed to
the accident. Our County Commis-
sioner, Billy Maxwell, has been
called many times about the poor
condition of the road. The road is
dangerous even at it's posted speed
limit of 35 MPH under certain con-
ditions. Why the county doesn't
consider even a tar and aggregate
solution to the problem is beyond
me. But, after the rains last week I
have to give Kudos to Billy
Maxwell for getting out to the road
to see the problems we've been fac-
ing and to at least have the road
graded thereby taking the ruts out
Sand preventing possibly another ac-
cident.
Editor's note: The Florida High-
way Patrol did not report the cause
of the accident and the Democrat
did not speculate.

Kudos to the Suwannee Democrat
for the story about Deputy Kim
Lane. It was an interesting read and
hopefully others will realize that the
Sheriffs Department does have well
trained personnel on staff to help
and protect the public in all ways.

Also, kudos again to the Suwan-
nee Democrat for starting to report
how national events are affecting us
here at home, (State Farm says 'See
Ya', Suwannee schools are peanut
free, City seeks share of stimulus
funds). I read the Democrat for the
local news but would .like to see
more regional / state / national news
in the paper to put it all together in-
stead of relying on other papers or
the television.

God has shown mercy on us all.
It wasn't 'just any politician,' it was
THE President of the United States
who acknowledged he made a mis-
take! Maybe, just maybe, there is
hope for this great country after all!

Councilman Mark Stewaft has
O.K.'d a Suv for our city adminis-
trator and stood up for our code en-
forcement officer when he broke
city policy. Stewart has let all the
funds put aside to take care of our
storm water projects be squandered
away through OMI "special out of
scope projects". You say Kudos I
say toodle lou in 2 years.

Our new school superintendent
needs to keep cutting the fat. If he
would continue getting rid of the
double dippers we could hire 2 or 3
or 4 football coaches.

NEWS FROM YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT



Heart disease awareness


By Mary Ward, Heanlh\
Communities, Hc alth\
People Coordinator.
Suwannee County,
Health Department .f -' *:

February is National
Heart Disease A\% are-
ness Month. Heart dis-
ease is the leading cause
of death in the Unit-
ed States. Heart -
disease is a term
that includes
several more .
specific heart
conditions.
The most
common
heart disease Mary Ward
in the United
States is
coronary heart disease, which can lead to
heart attack. Almost 700,000 people die of
heart disease in the U.S. each year. In the
past three years over 110 people in ,
Suwannee County died as a result of heart
disease.
Heart disease is sometimes thought of
as a "man's disease," although women ac-
count for 51% of the total heart disease
deaths. One in four women dies of heart
disease. By contrast, 1 in 30 dies of breast
cancer. The good news is that heart dis-
ease can be prevented or controlled by
making lifestyle changes. In fact, the steps
that protect you against heart disease may
help protect you against many cancers in-
cluding breast cancer.
Here are some key steps to a heart
healthy lifestyle:
Be physically active. This means get-
ting at least 30 minutes of a moderate-in-
tensity activity on most and preferably all
days of the week. A moderate-intensity ac-
tivity would be a nice brisk walk, for ex-
ample. But you don't even have to do the


30 minutes all at once. You can divide
them up into periods of at least 10
minutes each. Then each week, in-
creaje your walking time until
Sou're up to those 30 minutes a
a di. So take a longer walk on
the % ay into the office or store,
use the stairs more, or take a
\ alk after dinner.
Follow a healthy eating
plan-which means one
low in saturated fat, trans
fat, and cholesterol and
moderate in total fat. In-
S elude lots of fruits and
vegetables. If you have
high blood pressure, cut
down on salt and sodi-
um. And if you drink al-
coholic beverages, have no more
than one a day.
SThe first two steps-healthy
eating and being physically active-will
help you with another, which is to lose
weight, if necessary, and maintain a
healthy weight. To maintain a healthy
weight, balance the calories you take in
with those you use up in physical activity.
Waist circumference is an indicator of ab-
dominal fat. The risk of heart disease in-
creases for women if you waist measure-
ment is greater than 35 inches.
SIf you smoke, quit. It's the biggest fa-
vor you can do for your health. Start by
writing down all of the reasons you want
to quit. Then set a target date to quit. And
.don't be shy about using aids for quit-
ting-nicotine gum, the patch, nasal spray,
or medications. Reward yourself (with
something besides food) for your progress.
The Suwannee County Health Department
has a Tobacco Prevention Specialist that
can point you in the right direction to
leading a tobacco free lifestyle. If you
need help quitting, you can contact the
Florida Quitline for free services at 1-877-
822-6669.


When it comes to your health, you must
be in control. Talk to your physician or
medical provider if you have concerns. If
you have heart disease or risk factors for it
such as diabetes and are taking prescribed
medication, be sure to take it as directed.
Staying on a healthy track may be diffi-
cult at first. Don't try to overhaul your life
in a day. If you try to do too much at once,
you'll probably feel overwhelmed and
give up. Set realistic goals and be sure that
each change is do-able without a super-hu-
man effort. For instance, if you're increas-
ing your physical activity by walking laps
at the track, don't walk 16 laps on your
first day out then become too sore to walk
the next day. Try getting a buddy to walk
with to. Studies show that if you exercise
with a friend, you are more likely to stick
with a routine.
Don't kick yourself if you get off track.
If you go back to eating a high fat diet for
a while, don't give up just get back into
your new routine. Changing habits is
,tough, so let yourself enjoy each success.
Your healthy lifestyle choices are accom-
plishments that should be celebrated. But
be careful: don't celebrate with cake. Go
Sto a movie, get a pedicure or treat yourself
in some other fun way instead.,
Surviving a heart attack
But what should you do if you or a
loved one experiences any of the heart at-
tack warning signs? The most important
thing to do is get medical help fast. It's
impossible to stress this enough: You must
call 9-1-1 within minutes of the start of
heart attack signs-within 5 minutes at the
most according to the Centers for Disease
Control (CDC)-so that you can get to the
hospital quickly. Medical treatment ad-
vances that can save your life and mini-
mize the damage to your heart work best
if given within 1 hour of the start of warn-
ing signs.
Here are some signs of a heart attack
in both women and men:


Chest discomfort, usually in the center
Sof the chest,
that lasts for more than a few minutes,
or goes away and comes back. The dis-
comfort can feel like uncomfortable pres-
sure, squeezing, fullness, or pain.
Discomfort in other areas of the upper
body, including pain or discomfort in one
or both arms, the back, neck, jaw, or stom-
ach.
Shortness of breath, which may occur
with or without chest discomfort.
Or other symptoms, such as breaking
out in a cold sweat, nausea, or'light-head-
edness.
When in doubt, check it out, call 9-1-1
at once. Don't wait to take an aspirin. If
you're having a heart attack, the emer-
gency medical personnel will give you
one. Calling 9-1-1 speeds treatment, it's
like bringing the hospital to you. Emer-
gency medical personnel can get to work
at once to restore your blood flow. You
may -be tempted to drive yourself to the
hospital. Don't-not unless you have ab-
solutely no other option. Those arriving by
ambulance are treated sooner. Women are
particularly likely to delay seeking help.
They're afraid of embarrassment over a
false alarm or of upsetting their family and
sometimes their symptoms are not typical
of a heart attack. If it does turn out to,be a
false alarm, you still need to get your
symptoms checked. Another way to in-
crease your chance of survival is by plan-
ning ahead. Learn the heart attack warning
signs, make a survival plan, and talk to
your family and friends to be sure they
know the warning signs and what to do if
a heart attack happens.

Suwannee's District

School-Related

Employee of the Year:


A tribute


to Pattie Nixon
Submitted
Patricia "Pattie" Nixon, a registered nurse who
works as the school nurse at Suwannee Elementary
School in Live Oak has been chosen, as the Suwannee
County School-Related Employee of the Year for 2008-
09.
A 17-year employee of the Suwannee County School
System, Patti assesses student health needs and
provides first aid, administers and evaluates health
screenings, administers medication and monitors the
students afterward for safety, all the while establishing
and maintaining health records on all students. Patti
ensures that all immunizations and health physical are
up to date, administers complex medical procedures,
monitors diabetic students, administers insulin as
ordered and has assisted with two student
catheterizations. This valuable school nurse maintains
the clinic area and supplies appropriately, maintains a
safe and secure workplace, enters all health records on
the computer while identifying and establishing a care
plan for all students with medical conditions. She also
assists with Fluoride administration, as well as health
education for students and staff.
Patti Nixon, who has worked at Suwannee
Elementary for the past three years, has taken more
than 24 continuing education training classes to further
educate herself in how she can best help her students at
Suwannee Elementary School. Some of those classes
include Management and Prevention of Infections in
the School Setting Workshop; New Age Therapy
Insulin Pumps at School; Disaster Preparedness for
School Nurses; Risk Management/Legal Aspects of
Practice, HIV/AID Workshop; Pediatric Nursing
classes and Child Abuse: "Would You Recognize It If
You Saw It," just to mention a few.
Patti serves on the Suwannee County Schools Health
Advisory Committee as Chairperson, co-chairs the
Suwannee Elementary School Safety Committee; has
been a Take Stock in Children Mentor for three years;
and has received outstanding appraisal marks at.
Suwannee Elementary School as well as at Branford
Elementary School where she previously worked. She's
a member of the Florida School Nurse Association,
received outstanding appraisal marks in all clinical
rotations in nursing school and is a member of the
Florida Education Association. It's a wonder she even
has time to go home at night with her family! But,
then, that's the mark of any dedicated school employee.

School Related Employee of the Year for 2008-09, SES

Suwannee Elementary School nurse Pattie Nixon was announced as the 2008-09 School-Related Employee of the Year
Tuesday morning. Pictured with Nixon are: SES Principal Donna Long and Superintendent of Schools Jerry Scarborough.

Principal Donna Long said Patti Nixon is "a huge
contributor to the school system and provides many
students with high quality care for their medical
issues." And, she added, "Patti possesses the
characteristics that make her a strong candidate. She is
caring, warm, knowledgeable and efficient. She ices
down, wraps up, washes down and types up all day
long." Principal Long added that "she interacts with
families, doctors and agencies as needed. She also is
sensitive to the front office needs and will jump in and
help as the needs arise." Long said this school nurse
"does all that is required of her and much more with
such a cheerful spirit that makes her a delight to have
on our team. Patti really cares about her students and
will go the extra mile in order to help families deal
with serious medical issues."
The parent of one of Patti Nixon's students she helps
care for wrote the most compelling words describing
this wonderful school nurse who takes her role with
students very seriously. The parent, Keri Hilliard, said
her son has physical disabilities, which made it very
difficult for her to leave him in the care of others on his
first day in a new school in the third grade. She need
not have worried, she said. Her son had major surgery
during the summer and when she arrived at school, he
was still recuperating and required special attention: "I
arrived at the school anxious and nervous about how
Matthew's needs would be accommodated," Keri
Hilliard said in her letter of recommendation of Patti
Nixon. ""Within minutes I was relieved of my fears
and confident that he, was in loving and competent


hands."
Later, Hilliard said, thb child was hospitalized and
was in need of home nursing services in order to go
home. At one point it looked asif the family would
have to move to Jacksonville for six weeks to obtain
the care the boy needed. Patti Nixon stepped up upon
learning of the situation thru a phone call from Hilliard.
"Within a few hours I was notified that things had been
worked out for Matthew to go home and receive the
care he needed there," Hilliard said. "I later discovered
it was Patti who made the phone calls that worked out
those' arrangements. Patti is known for going above and
beyond what is her required job responsibility to help
her students. I will forever be grateful to her."
"More. important than relieving my fears and
anxieties is what she has done for Matthew," Hilliard
notes. "He trusts Patti, and he truly loves her. He
knows he can go to her with any concern, and he often
tells me, 'Don't worry, mom, Ms. Pattie will take care
of it!'"
Hilliard said she believes Patti Nixon is deserving of
the honor of Suwannee County School Related
Employee of the Year. "She is most worthy of this
honor as she represents the highest ideals and values of
the Suwannee County School District."
The Suwannee County School Related Employee of
the Year Selection Committee wholeheartedly concurs
with Principal Long and Keri Hilliard in,
recommending Patti Nixon as Suwannee County School
Related Employee of the Year as well as Florida School
Related Employee of the Year for 2008-09.

Folk duo slated to perform at ACV


By Sally Q. Smith, Office for Member
Services, Advent Christian village
Advent Christian Village (ACV) is
pleased to announce the performance of The
Coleen Walters Duo on Tuesday evening,

Rant


Continued From Page 6A

Was the drop program established so gov-
ernment workers could get second pensions
and come back at greater salaries then be-
fore. There are certain institutions in this
county that should be ashamed. You cry
about no money, well look how you spend
it.

President Obama needs to come to the
city of Live Oak. They give out pay raises
and buy things just like the bail out people.

In the Rant and Rave I read this Friday it
says this must be the black Democrat. 1
wanted to say that this couldn't be the black
Democrat. And I think the person that
wrote this must be prejudiced because they
are disappointed that a black could do
something positive for a change instead of
committing a crime.

I just want to say that I agree with the
zoning board's decision to not issue another
special use permit for the racetrack. I think
it's a great idea and would boost the econo-
my. I just think it's in the wrong location.
What I kinda want to know is if those peo-
ple had a permit and they in good faith
spent' time, money and effort to develop that
track and then they had it operating I un-
derstand. Now that they can 't operate is it
possible that we the taxpayers are going to
have to pay that investment that those peo-
ple had in that track. Is there a possibility of
that? I was just curious. Anyway, I support
the decision.

Interesting to read today on page 7A of
the Democrat an article saying Suwannee
schools are peanut free. My child was
served a peanut butter and jelly sandwich
with chili today in the school cafeteria.

Thi' ti in response to the caller who crit-
icized the Teacher of the Year for using a
split infinitive. A split infinitive is used
when an infinitive such as to play or to
work is interrupted by another word typi-
cally an adverb. Anyone that has ever used
the term "to boldly go where no one has
gone before;" uses a split infinitive. Ac-
cording to the Oxford University Press a
split infinitive is completely acceptable un-
less used in a formal academic writing.
Considering the teacher was spontaneously


mances will be held one at 10 a.m. at Good
Samaritan Center and the other at 3 p.m. in
Dacier Manor.
This duo consists of Coleen Walters, play-
ing bass, and her husband, Neal, who plays
several instruments including autoharp, dul-
cimer, and banjo. The Walters live in Green-


Rave


interviewed during a class in a room full of
people congratulating her on her accom-
plishments I would hardly think it would be
considered a formal setting. In fact split in-
finitives are at times more acceptable than a
weak sentence, which may be created by
shifting the words to satisfy those who
would prefer something done their way.
The teacher the caller referred to is an
amazing teacher who deeply cares for the
students she works with as well as her
coworkers. Trying to demean a wonderful
teacher over something that even many pro-
fessors have argued over being acceptable
or not is seems unbelievably petty. Regard-
ing whether she teaches her students the
proper way to write, let me assure you that
she does. In fact according to the state of
Florida when the students writing is graded
not only do they pass, but are acknowl-
edged as above average writers.

I'm calling concerning the issue about the
black Democrat paper. The person that
called in concerning their concerns about
the paper. This is 2009, there's a change.
Please keep your negative remarks to your-
self. And I feel like the Democrat shouldn't
have printed anything like that in the paper.
This is a small community and we all have
to live and work together. And also con-
cerning the issue about the teacher, that is-
sue should have never been put in because
this is private person and I feel like this
shouldn't have been published in your
Rantin' and Ravin'. I feel like the Democrat
did not do their job on verifying this and
omitting negative remarks.

Now that the controversial racetrack in
the Ft. Union area has been shut down, this
obnoxious nuisance should be removed and
the property on which it is located should
be returned to its original condition and
contour. This precedent has already bedn
set in other cases within our state. How bout
it commission?

castle, Pa., but grew up in Southern Califor-
nia. Singing and.playing since the '60's, their
music has been influenced by many different
artists and styles of music. Their current
repertoire includes songs from the 1700's
through Gordon Lightfoot, Doc Watson, the
Carter Family, '40's standards, and even a
couple of Beatles songs. The duo's web site,
www.basementmusicstudio.com, promises
"lots of harmony singing as well as some in-
strumentals" and adds that "an evening spent
with them in concert will take you to lots of
different places."
The duo has two duet albums: "Snow-
birds" and "My Pathway Leads to Pennsyl-

When not traveling and making music,
The Walters run Basement Studios, which
provides high quality studio recording and
engineering in a rural and relaxed environ-
ment.
Additionally, Coleen is a skilled

taught dulcimer, autoharp, banjo, and guitar
in and around Washington, DC, and at
camps and festivals.

stepfather have now been
arrested on charges of
abuse and neglect, jail
records show.
Ronald Edward Kramer
Jr., 26, of 15318 CR 250,
Live Oak, was charged
with aggravated child
abuse and neglect of a
child resulting in great
bodily injury. Rebecca Lee
Rescigno, 25, same ad-
dress, was charged with
aggravated child abuse
and neglect of a child re-
sulting in great bodily
harm. They were arrested
Wednesday and remained
in the Suwannee County
Jail as of Thursday on
$75,000 bond each.
Olivia Rescigno was
found dead in her crib at
her Suwannee County
home on March 14. Ac-
cording to sheriffs reports,
Kramer, a registered sex
offender, had "intentional-
ly inflicted a bite wound
to (the) victim's left thigh
area." Bruises were also
apparent on the child's
face and legs, reports


show. However, none of
the injuries would have
proved fatal, according to
authorities.
"She had injuries that
were consistent with child
abuse, but not necessarily
with death," said Sheriff
Tony Cameron.
According to a report
filed by Sheriffs Deputy
Wayne Kelly, emergency
crews responded to the
home around 9 p.m. in ref-
erence to a report of an in-
fant who was not breath-
ing. The child had been
found in her crib by
Kramer, who reportedly
told Kelly that he laid the
child down for a nap
around 5:30 to 6 p.m.
Kramer then stated he
watched TV for about 10
minutes before going out-
side to help neighbors
work on a carn
Around 6:30 to 7
Kramer ate dinner at a
neighbor's home but told
Kelly he checked on the
child before going. After
dinner Kramer reportedly
opened the back door to
hear if the baby was cry-
ing. Hearing nothing, he
went back outside for
about an hour before going


back in to prepare food for
the child. It was then,
Kramer said, that he no-
ticed Olivia was not
breathing. Reports state
that Kramer told Kelly he
"freaked out" and ran to a
neighbor's house scream-
ing for help. A neighbor
performed CPR on the
child until rescue arrived,
but was unsuccessful.
Olivia was pronounced
dead at Shands Live Oak
at 9:15.
Rebecca Lee Rescigno,
was at work at Pilgrim's
Pride at the time.
She and Kramer told
Kelly that the infant had
mild sleeping problems
and chronic ear infections
and had been hospitalized

flu-like symptoms.
Rescigno told Kelly that
the child was herself re-
sponsible for the bruises
on her body, stating the in-
fant was having a fit in the
crib several days prior, ac-
cording to sheriffs reports.
She stated that the child
was jumping around the
crib and hit her head on
the crib bars. She did not
explain how the child re-
ceived the bite mark.

lar Dystrophy, is joining
families around the nation
who have been touched by
the disease in a fundrais-
ing effort to help find a
cure. The group is recruit-
ing a team of 18 climbers
to hike 14,410 feet to the
top of Mount Rainier in
August.
DMD is a rare form of
Muscular Dystrophy,
which only afflicts boys,
and which is 100 percent
fatal. Those diagnosed
only live through their late
teens or early twenties.
Since Evan.was diag-
nosed with DMD about a
year ago Procko and his
wife, Kim, have been re-
searching for answers and
pouring funds into re-
search efforts for a cure.
Evan, who started Pre-
Kindergarten at Branford
Elementary this year,
loves music, art and cook-
ing anything that doesn't
require much running and
jumping, since the disease
attacks the muscles. But
he does like to toss around
a ball.
"He has natural athletic
talent," Evan's dad said.
Evan has been taking
steroids since around
Christmas. His dad said it
strengthens his heart and
muscles and slows the


progression of the disease.
However, Bill Procko said
the steroids will stunt
Evan's growth and cause
weight gain and mood
swings -- side effects
which his parents hope to
reduce through good nutri-
tion.
Climbers participating
in the fundraiser will have
until Aug. 29 to raise
$14,410 each a dollar for
every foot of the moun-
tain's height for a grand
total of $259,380, all of
which will go toward re-
search for the cause of
finding a cure for DMD.
Donors may sponsor a
climber for $1 per foot.
Cure Duchenne Muscular
Dystrophy, an organization
founded by the parents of
a DMD child, is hosting
the event.
Procko said much of the
money raised will go to a
Dutch company working
on a form of gene therapy.
If successful, some pa-
tients might be granted a
normal life span. If Evan
is a candidate for the ther-
apy, Bill Procko said he is
confident his son will live
to see a cure.
"It's a mountain we will
climb, but we're saying to
ourselves this isn't an im-
possible fight, this isn't an
possible climb," Procko
said of the fundraiser.

but lost the trail.
About an hour later, a vehicle matching the descrip-
tion of the suspect's was stopped by a Suwannee Coun-
ty sheriffs deputy. The suspect and the vehicle were
identified and the suspect was arrested. A weapon was
recovered within the vehicle, say police.
Woods had been released from prison on Dec. 31,
2008, according to Florida Department of Corrections
records. He served four years in Jefferson Correctional
Institution for carjacking with a firearm, robbery with
a firearm, grand theft auto and fleeing/eluding a law
enforcement officer. Those crimes, for which he re-
mained on probation, were committed in Broward
County in 2004.


sents the plaintiff, Suwan-
nee County resident
Jonathan R. Lugo, has
filed a motion asking the
court to let the case pro-
ceed. The motions will be
heard by a federal bank-
ruptcy judge in Texas on
Feb. 10.
Lugo's suit alleges that
Pilgrim's failed to pay
some workers time-and-a-
half for overtime, as re-
quired by law, and forced
some workers at its
Suwannee County plant to
work off the clock without
compensation.
Lugo is seeking dam-
ages for unpaid wages, as
well as court costs and at-
torney's fees. He is also
asking that other current
and former employees of
Pilgrim's be notified so
that similar claims may be
consolidated into a collec-
tive action, which is in
some ways similar to a

Lake Louise: County says no to extra outlay

$114,015 as of Oct. 20,
2008.
Chairman Jesse
Caruthers was opposed to
the purchase, citing the
county's many other fi-
nancial obligations.
"We can't fix other fa-
cilities, so we're just go-
ing to buy a whole new
venture," Caruthers said.
"I'm not for it."


I Commissioner Douglas
Udell said he favored pur-
chasing the land so coun-
ty residents could enjoy
the lake.
"I would like to see the
county own this property
for recreational purposes,"
said Udell. "I think the
price is reasonable."
Commissioner Billy
Maxwell, in whose dis-
trict the lake is located,
agreed with Udell.


"I think we need to be
looking recreation-wise
way beyond where we are
today," said Maxwell. "I
don't think we got any-
thing now that we are not
taking care.of."
Commissioner Ivie
Fowler said he thought
the land was overpriced.
"I would hate to pay
$400,000 for land that
(the property appraiser)
valued at $114,000,"


Fowler said.
The Lake Louise pro-
ject has been controver-
sial since its inception in
2006 when Grinnell, the
county code enforcement
officer, offered commis-
sioners about three acres
free-of charge on which to
build the ramp and park.
Homeowners around the
lake were concerned
about extra boating traf-
fic, among other issues.


Third Circuit State Attor-
ney Robert L. Jarvis
cleared Dowdy and other
personnel of criminal
wrongdoing by letter Jan.
25 following an investiga-
tion into the spending pat-
terns at Station 42. In the
letter Jarvis cited "numer-
ous violations of policy
and a lack of effective re-
view," but said no criminal
activity occurred as far as
he could tell.
According to Udell,
Dowdy's suspension was
to only last until the end of
the investigation.
Chairman Jesse
Caruthers made the motion
at the Oct. 7 board meet-
ing to suspend Dowdy un-
til the end of the investiga-
tion. Caruthers said that


"That was just a sugges-
tion, a comment I called
for," said Caruthers.
Udell said the minutes
speak for themselves.
"If we followed what the
minutes (the Oct. 7 board
meeting) said, he was sus-
pended until the end of the
investigation," said Udell
"He was made whole at
the end of the investiga-
tion and if we're going to
abide by that then my part
of the conversation is
over."
"It just suspends him
from further activity,"
county attorney Hal Airth
said. "You need to have
him reinstated or he will
stay suspended."
Dowdy was not present
at the meeting.

Bulldog baseball season



around the corner


By Shannon Jernigan


The Suwannee Bulldogs '
Baseball season is quickly ap- -
proaching, as the Bulldogs
open up their season at home
in the Pre-Season Classic,
Feb. 12 and 13. The Bulldogs
have several returning players l
at key positions, so expecta-
tions are high. They will also
face a tough schedule, both in
district and non-district play.
In the Pre-Season Classic
the Dogs will face two quality
opponents from nearby Madi-
son County and.Columbia. Shannon Jernigan
Madison County won their
district last season in 2008
while the Tigers from Columbia finished tied
for first in their 5A district before losing to


Gainesville High in the dis-
trict tournament. Both
teams have hitters with
power and very good start-
ing pitchers.
The Bulldogs have seven
..i^ seniors returning in 2009.
Six of those seniors are in
the projected starting line-
up and the pitching staff
lost only one to graduation.
Senior, Dalton Wigelsworth
returns in the infield, but
moves from second base to
shortstop this season.
David Campbell returns in
the outfield, but is nursing
a knee injury he sustained
in football. Joining David


in the outfield is Corey White.
See this page for the 2009 varsity schedule.

Antonio Fields had 17 points
and four'rebounds, two blocks.
Vernon Hampton added 14
points, six assists. The two
guards that run the show for the

tributed five points
and five steals in the Wildcats
21st victory.
Their next games was an ex-
tremely hard fought game
against the Meadowbrook Mus- ,
tangs out of Ocala for the Mus-

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Baseball's first blacks


not that far away


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels


The names Bob
Trice and John
Kennedy don't jump
out at you in baseball
lore. Trice was the
Philadelphia
Athletics first black I
player and born in
Newton, Ga. John Kennedy,
born in Jacksonville, was the
first black Philadelphia Philly. A
guy named Jackie Robinson is
remembered and he was born up
the road in Cairo, Ga. A
southerner by birth, Robinson
grew up in California. He would
face discrimination in his
neighboring state of Florida
after WW II. Jacksonville and
Sanford refused to let him play
professional baseball in their
cities. Daytona Beach lifted the
ban and Robinson played his
first minor league game there.
Segregation in Florida lead to
some teams moving their spring
training sites, among them the
Yankees.
Robinson's accomplishments
are legend. He was the first
athlete to letter in four sports at
UCLA, football, baseball,
basketball and track. His brother
Matt medaled in the 1936
Olympics. Before he gave it up
Robinson was considered the


best tennis player in
California. Robinson played
semi-pro football for the
Honolulu Bears just months:
before Pearl Harbor.
After the war he tried out
for the Boston Red Sox but

February extends deer season in Northwest Zone


Thus far, this deer season
hasn't been good to me as
far as quantity goes, but
thanks to a good friend
who invited me to hunt
with him on his lease, I did
bag a very nice 7-pointer
on New Year's Day. What
a way to start off the New
Year! And believe me,
that's a great buck for a
hunter like me, who's spent
the past 18 years hunting
the flatwoods of Franklin
County. But I still have
plenty of room left in my O utt|
freezer, so I'm not throw-
ing in the towel just yet the
after all, there are still lots
of hunting days left in my By Tony
neck of the woods.
So if you're like me or if
you live in the central or southern part of
the state and you don't mind hunting with
a primitive weapon, then point your pick-
up truck north, because the Northwest
Hunting Zone's deer season's still goin'
strong on private lands and most wildlife
management areas (WMAs).
The second phase, if you will, of muz-


a'

roods
Young


zleloading gun season runs
Feb. 19 March 1. in this
part of the Panhandle. This
unique late season, which
occurs only in the North-
west Zone, was established
to allow hunters the chance
to hunt the rut that runs
from late January through
February in this part of the
state.
A $5 Muzzleloading
Gun Permit is required to
hunt during this season,
where, on private land,
hunters have the choice of
using a muzzleloader, bow
or crossbow.
On WMAs, this post-
season's referred to as the


archery/muzzleloading gun
season. Hunters can use
bows or muzzleloaders, but no crossbows
unless they possess a Disabled Cross-
bow Permit. Hunters who choose to hunt
with a bow must have the $5 Archery
Permit, and those using a muzzleloader
need the $5 Muzzleloading Gun Permit.

The most common game to hunt during


this season are deer and wild hogs. Only
bucks may be taken (even if you use a
bow), and one antler must be at least five
inches in length. On private land, the dai-
ly bag limit is two. Bag limits and antler
size for deer on WMAs can differ, so
please consult the area brochure before
you hunt.
Wild hogs are considered livestock on
private lands, and because of this, they
can be taken year-round with no bag or
size limits. On most WMAs, there's also
no bag or size limits, and hogs are legal
to take during most hunting seasons ex-
cept spring turkey. On selected WMAs,
specific bag and size limits do apply, so
check the area's brochure to make sure.
No dogs may be used in the pursuit of
deer or hogs during this season, but
leashed dogs can, however, be used to
track wounded game if necessary. And it's
important to note that no turkeys may be
taken during this season.
Bows and crossbows must have a mini-
mum draw weight of 35 pounds, and
hand-held releases on bows are
permitted. Broadheads used in taking
deer must have at least two sharpened
edges with a minimum width of 7/8 inch.
For hunting deer, muzzleloaders that fire


single bullets must be at least .40-caliber.
Muzzleloaders firing two or more balls
must be 20-gauge or larger.
SYou're allowed to take deer and hogs
over feeding stations on private land, but
it's illegal to use bait on WMAs.
Some things you can't do during this
late season include shooting swimming'
deer, using explosive or drug-injecting ar-
rows, using muzzleloaders with self-con-
tained cartridge ammunition capabilities
and using or possessing modern firearms.
Seventeen of the WMAs in the North-
west Hunting Zone have the late
archery/muzzleloading gun season, and if
you plan to hunt any of 'em, you must
have the $26 management area permit as
well as your hunting license.
You can get all of the licenses and per-
mits you'll need at any tax collectors' of-
fice, retail outlet that sells hunting and
fishing supplies, by calling toll-free 888-
HUNT-FLORIDA or by going online at
www.wildlifelicense.com.
So if you're like me and not ready for'
deer season to be over with, have no fear
'cause February's here! Grab your fa- -
vorite primitive weapon and head over to
the Northwest Hunting Zone where the'
rut's goin' on hard and heavy.


If you have an exotic pet you
can't care for anymore, don't just
open the front door and set it free.
It's illegal to release a nonnative
animal into the wild in Florida, and
it could be detrimental for the. ani-
mal and the environment. In an ef-
fort to keep unwanted exotic pets
out of Florida's native habitats, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) and the
Miami MetroZoo will host the fifth
Nonnative Pet Amnesty Day in
March in Miami.,
"We are expecting to get quite a
few nonnative animals that day, so
we need to make sure we have safe
homes for them," said Jenny Tin-
nell of the FWC. "Released pets
are a common pathway that allows
exotic species into the wild. Often,
pet owners don't understand the
difference between native and non-
native species, or they don't realize
the possible effects releasing a non-
native species can have. This event
gives pet owners who can no

longer take care of their pets or no
longer wish to keep them a legal,
ethical option."
Currently, the FWCis looking
for potential adopters in South
Florida who are experienced pet
owners and are willing to provide a
home for one or two more animals.
All adopters must fill out the prop-
er application form before they re-
ceive surrendered animals.
"This isn't a free pet giveaway,"
Tinnell said. "We're looking for
adopters with knowledge and ex-
pertise in caring for exotic pets, not
people who have always wanted a
pet and think this is an opportunity
to try their hand at owning one
they don't have to purchase."
Pet Amnesty Day will be March
21 at the Miami MetroZoo. It's free
and open to the public. Exotic ani-
mals can be surrendered to the
FWC free of charge with no ques-
tions asked and no penalties.
"We will not be penalizing any
pet owners who.choose the respon-

Day is also a family event; there
will be live animals on display, live

Experts will be on hand to talk to
about proper care of exotic pets, so
people who are thinking about pur-
chasing one can learn from credible
sources before they buy. This is a
chance for people to not only see
exotic animals, but get up close
and even touch them.
Nonnative pet amnesty events

Top freshwater

fishing destinations

in Florida for 2009

By Bob Wattendorf
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

If you are like me, you've probably heard, "You
should have been here yesterday; the fishing was
great," more times than you can count. And if like me,
you're tired of that phrase, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife ConserAvtion Commission (FWC) has come
to the rescue.
FWC biologists continue to give anglers the best ad-
vice on the location of some of the sweetest honey
holes to cast a line in Florida. That means you might
be the next one bragging about a whopper of a day
spent fishing.
Fisheries biologists used a variety of clues, includ-
ing the recent fishing history of various lakes and
rivers based on creel surveys, Big Catch angler-recog-
nition records and electrofishing results. They also
evaluated habitat conditions, water flow and young-of-
the-year survival from the previous year to suggest the
top destinations for 2009. Lists of the best places to go
for bass, crappie, bream, catfish and stripers are post-
ed at MyFWC.com/Fishiig/Forecast. In addition, re-
gional biologists check with local fishing guides and
bait-and-tackle shops quarterly (January, April, July,
October) to get insights into how major fisheries are
producing and what anglers are using successfully on
a variety of lakes and rivers throughout the year. The
same Web site will give you access to that informa-
tion, along with local contact numbers for up-to-
minute updates.

two minutes to give the Wildcats the victory.
Whitmore has really excelled ever since
Coach Raines moved him to shooting guard
and Raines to point guard.
"The offense is starting to flow better since
the switch," says Coach Raines. Jackson had
another solid effort with 17 points, 12 re-
bounds, and four blocks. Fields played great
defense against the Mustangs best player in the
second half, holding him to two points


in the second half. Fields also contributed
seven points, seven rebounds and six blocks.
Hampton added eight points. Raines added
three points, six assists and five steals, running
the show for the Wildcats in a hard fought vic-
tory giving the Wildcats their 22nd win.
The next games for the Wildcats would be
the District playoffs hosted in Palatka by Pe-
niel Baptist Academy. Wildcats are looking to
win back to back District and FCAL titles.
Look to the Democrat for the scores and sto-
ries of those games. Go Wildcats.


SPORTS COMMENTARY


Baseball's first blacks


not that far away

they passed. As a matter of fact,
Boston would pass on black
players until July 21, 1959. The
last team to play an African-
American player. Jackie went to
the Brooklyn Dodgers and the
rest is history.
Robinson's trials and
tribulations as baseball's first
African-American are well
documented. A few incidents
stand out that are fascinating and
bear repeating. Leo "The Lip"
Durocher was one of Robinson's
manager.
"I don't care if the guy is black
or yellow or has freakin' stripes
like a zebra," Durocher famously
remarked. "I'm the manager and I
says he plays."
Said Hall of Famer and


Robinson teammate Pee Wee
Reese, "You can hate a man for
many reasons. The color of his
skin is not one of them."
Don Newcombe, another
teammate, and Robinson were not
allowed to stay at the Chase Park
Hotel in St. Louis. Newcombe
asked why. When told they had a
swimming pool, Newcombe said,
"That's all right, were ball players
nottswimmers." They got to stay.
A year later the hotel was
integrated.
I met Jackie Robinson at
Disney Land 49 years ago. I
didn't have a clue, some black
guy with white hair. Of course my
mother. a diehard Dodger fan.
knew who it was and got his
autograph. I wish I knew where it
was today. Jackie Robinson was a
lot of great things, but for now,
how about one of the greatest
athletes that ever lived. And oh
yeah, he was born up the road a
piece in Cairo.

Now THAT'S Something

S To Smile About!

difference. Birds and Bloom, a
national magazine, is filled with
all types of inventive designs.
You might want to build your
own, I know I can't.
Once you have a feeder, food
is the next item on the agenda.
Sunflower seeds are to birds like
squid is to salt water fish, the
universal food. This doesn't
mean you can't use mixed seed,
as different birds favor different
seeds. Remember, not all birds
are seed eaters, a birdbath will
invite other'birds as well. Do not
fill your bath all the way up as
birds feel safer when they know
where the bottom is. If you want
to attract Gold Finches, a sock
feeder filled with thistle is the
way to go. Put your feeder where
it can be seen by you and the
birds. Remember seed that hits
the ground can germinate and
you may end up with some plants
more exotic than your birds.
What will you see? The little
brown speckled guys are
sparrows. They come in more
varieties than Coke. The pretty
red ones are Cardinals the real
pretty ones are Summer
Tanagers. Florida is filled with
all types of birds, from the snow
birds to Bald Eagles. Chances are


you won't have Bald Eagles at
your feeders but an occasional
hawk may snatch an eater from
time to time.
You may get lucky and spot a
bird off course. I had a group of
Sand Hill Cranes spend a
considerable amount of time in a
field near by. My strangest feeder
was a beautiful quail that showed
up one day. I found out later a
neighbor about a mile away was
Raising this type of bird and had
had an escape. Blue Birds, Red
Winged Blackbirds, Doves,
Tufted Titmice, Chickadees and
Yellow Belly Sapsuckers are but '
a few of my yearly visitors. The
list of possible visitors is endless.
Wild Turkey and Jack Daniels
* have shown up at feeders.
As March Madness
approaches so do the
hummingbirds. East of the
Mississippi we only get the Ruby
Throated. Once again a feeder for
this wanna-be dinosaur ranges
from a $1 to whatever you want
to spend. They are truly amazing
to watch and about fearless. My
least favorite to watch is the
Wingless Florida Grey Breasted
Tree Squirrel. You will learn to
hate or love these rodents who
eat more bird food then a horde
of locust.
If you are going to take time to
smell the roses, take time to
watch the birds. While your
watching remember this is the
month to get some bird seed and
help out.

works of mercy ,
The corporal works of mercy, or acts of
mercy, as they are sometimes called, are
considered essential by the Catholic .a
Church. Other Christian, and non-
Christian denominations also share a
belief in these works of mercy. The
corporal works ofmercy all focus on
bodily needs, the word "corporal" .
deriving from the Latin "corpus" meaning
body. There are also spiritual works of
mercy, but for now, let us focus onthe
corporal works of mercy. The seven
corporal works of mercy are almost Zen- y -
like in their simplicity, are arguably self- A
S explanatory, and have a clear Biblical F
basis. They are: 1) Feed the hungry; 2)
Give drink to the thirsty; 3) Clothe the
naked; 4) Shelter the homeless; 5) Visit
the imprisoned; 6) Visit the sick; and 7) 0
Bury the dead. Some of these, such as
L feeding the hungry, are relatively easy to
carry out, at least on a small scale, -j
though they become more problematic
on a larger scale. We should reflect on
how we might incorporate these acts of
mercy into our personal life, and then
too, how we might support them on a .
larger scale, perhaps by supporting
organizations which fulfill their mission.

A very rich holiday


Happy Valentines Day! How
will you show that special
someone that you love him or
her? In just a few days people
all over the world will cele-
brate Valentine's Day with an
expression of love...the Na-
tional Retail Federation esti-
mates that Americans alone
spent approximately $17 bil-
lion last year on the Valen-
tine's Day holiday. Why all
the fuss? According to Dr.
Gary Chapman, love is an
emotional need, and what we
most need to learn about love
is how to express it in a lan-
guage that the other person
understands. In Chapman's


Heart

Matters
By Angie Land


book "The Five Love Languages", he
explains the five basic languages of
love:
Words of Affirmation: this can
mean words of sincere praise for, efforts
as well as words of affection that ex-
press positive thoughts toward someone
as a person. "You are such a great
friend", "Your eyes are beautiful", or "I
know that didn't turn out like you
hoped, but I am proud of how hard you
tried."
Quality Time: giving a portion of
time and your undivided attention is a
powerful communicator of love to an-
other person because our lives are so
busy. This doesn't mean simply being
in the same room at the same time, but
has everything to do with together-
ness...making sure the other person
feels like they are the focus of your at-
tention.
Receiving Gifts: gifts are visible
evidence of emotional love. Perhaps
this explains the billions spent on
Valentine's Day. The Greek word from
which we get our English word gift is'
"charis" which means grace or unde-
served...for no reason. The beauty of
gifts is that they don't have to be fancy
or expensive to be valuable. A gift says
"I care about you" and "I think you are
important". That is the real treasure.
Acts of Service: Loving service is
an internally motivated desire to give
your energy for another. Just doing
something for someone, especially
something they want or need accom-
plished is a powerful way to communi-
cate love. Like quality time, it requires
a portion of our life set aside and do-


nated for another, but acts
of service also allows them
to be free of a task or
chore.
Physical Touch: There
is a reason why parents are
encouraged to hold and
cuddle their
newborns...touching is an
emotionally powerful way
to communicate love. This
is why we love to give and
receive hugs and why we
enjoy a shoulder massage
or a good back
scratch...touch makes us
feel loved and accepted.
Although all of the five
love languages listed


above are enjoyable, every person has
one or two of these that makes them
feel more loved than the others...and
by nature we speak that language to
others. If we enjoy gifts, we will proba-
bly buy gifts for others. If we want
words of affirmation, we will likely
leave love notes and be very encourag-
ing verbally. The problem comes when
the other person doesn't speak our lan-
guage. We may be speaking gifts, but
they want some quality time. Or they
may be doing acts of service for us
while we long to hear them say, "I love
you". We must learn to speak the lan-
guage of the other person if we want
them to feel loved by us. We can usual-
ly determine our own language by what
we most often do for another when we
want to show love to them. We can de-
termine another person's language by
asking their preference and watching
what they do for others. This principle
can be applied in friendships and par-
ent-child/teenager relationships as well
as romantic relationships. What a great
way to celebrate love...in the language
of the recipient!
Happy Heart Day...because yours
matters!

tion Under God', back to reality." Further infor-
mation can be obtained by calling the Pastor at

TAX TIP.

Child Tax Credit
Depending on your income and the age of your children, you could score
a hefty income tax credit and possibly earn a tax refund. In 2008, more
lower-income workers will qualify for a larger refundable tax credit.

Credit worth as much as $1,000 per child

SIf you have children who are under age 17 at of the end of 2008, you can
get a $1,000 tax credit per child on your tax return. A tax credit reduces
your tax bill dollar for dollar, so three qualifying children, for example, can
cut what you owe Uncle Sam by $3,000. The credit may be limited.

And the credit does not affect the exemptions you take for dependents --
worth $3,500 apiece in 2008. The child tax credit is in addition to your
exemptions.


Tithe,


ugh!









-' ..


By David Matier

There are many opin-
ions about the subject of
tithing. Most Christians
don't mind the preached
stepping on their toes but,
watch out when he touch-
es their pocketbook!
They just plain don't like
to hear sermons on the
subject of tithing; they
make them squirm in
their seats and watch the
time wondering, "When
will this all be over." But
as you study your Bible
you'll notice the tithe
was the standard of giv-
ing before the Law (Gen-
esis 14:19, 20). It was
before the Law that Jacob
vowed a 10th of all that
God would give him unto
the Lord (Genesis 28:22).
The Law is more than
the Ten Commandments -
it is the first five books
of the Bible (Joshua 1:8).
Notice the Lord. speaking
to the people, telling
them that if they will lis-
ten to, and meditate on
this Law, after the death
of Moses states, "...thou
shalt make thy way pros-
perous, and then thou
shalt have good success."
(Joshua 1:8 KJV). In the
Law the tithe was for the
support of the Lord's
work (Numbers 18:21).
They were directed to
take a tithe of the total
tithe and put it into the
treasury for the up-keep
of the House of God: the
other 9/10 went to the -
Levites (the priests); this
was their means of sup-
port (Nehemiah 10:38;
Matthew 10:10). Those
who withheld their tithe
under the Law were con-
sidered robbers of God
(Malachi 3:7-9).
The New Testament
teaches proportionate
giving (I Corinthians
16:2). The standard was
set in the Old Testament
from the very beginning,
10% "Bring ye all the
tithes into the storehouse,
that there may be meat in
mine house, and prove
me now herewith, saith
the Lord of hosts, if I
will not open you the
windows of heaven, and
pour you out a blessing,
that there shall not be
room enough to receive
it." (Malachi 3:10 KJV).
This should be the start-
ing place! Put Him to
the test. But giving must
be from a willing heart;
if your heart is right it
will not be a burden to
give (II Corinthians 9:6,
7 the mad, sad & glad
giver).
Jesus challenges you,
as His follower, to recog-
nize the reality of God's
sovereign ownership of
life and possessions and
to do something tangible
about it, to dedicate to
God that part of your
possessions that already
belong to Him back to .


Him.
Christianity is a per-
sonal (purse-and-all) reli-
gion. Tithers build
churches and strengthen
themselves in the
process, growing as they
give.

Dear Classified Guys,
A friend of mine is expecting a baby
and her parents sent me an invitation
to her baby shower. I am so excited
about going. I just love baby show-
ers. I had two of my own when I had
my children. At the bottom of her
invitation was a note that said,
"Gently used items are welcome."
Since I have an attic full of great
things from my children in "like new"
condition, I'd love to pass them
along. However, I'm concerned that
the note on the invitation
could mean that we -'<
should bring used items
as well as a gift from her
registry. With all that I have
stored in the attic, I could put
a big package together that would
wow any newly expecting mom. I'm
just afraid of being embarrassed if I
misjudged how the invitation read. I
can't decide if I should take the
chance of giving these things as a
gift or just have a yard sale like I was
planning. Any thoughts?

Carry: After acquiring items from
two baby showers, it's likely you could
do both! It's amazing how many things
collect from the first few years of hav-
ing a child. Passing those items along

to someone who could use them is a
great idea.
Cash: Most baby showers are not
only a celebration, but help new couples
acquire many of the things they will
need for the first year. Since the initia-
tion opened the door for "gently used
items", you're not out of line in putting
together a package from your own attic.
Carry: However, if you feel uncom-
fortable about the idea or are worried
about misinterpreting the invitation,
call your friend to see if the items
would be helpful. If the party is a sur-
prise, talk to the parents who are host-
ing the shower instead.
Cash: We would guess that if the


invitation confused you, it might have
been confusing to others as well.
However, it was a great idea of the par-
ents to include bringing "used items"
on the invitation.
Carry: A large basket of useful baby
items is sure to get a "wow" from your
friend. Your experience with two chil-
dren will be very helpful in choosing
which items are most important versus
those that were hardly used.
Cash: Since you're simply trying to
do what's best for your friend, there's no
need to worry about what others may
think. Besides, after all the gifts she
gets at her baby shower, maybe the two
of you can have a yard sale together!


Cost of Living
According to a survey of over 1000
mom's at babycentet:com, parents spent
over $10,000 in the baby's first year.
But the spending didn't end there. More
than 52% of parents found that they
needed to upgrade to a larger vehicle.
Nearly 32% decided they had to move
or planned on moving for more space.
And about 10% chose to renovate or
made plans to expand for the added
room. Regardless of the changes, most
of the parents would say it's all worth it!
Price of a Baby
Some say a picture is worth a thou-
sand words. However, a baby's picture
could be worth millions of dollars,.
especially when the parents are
Hollywood celebrities. People maga-
zine in conjunction with Hello! maga-
zine paid 14 million dollars for the first
photos of Brad and Angelina's twins
Knox and Vivenne. That's quite the
jump from the 4.1 million paid for the
photos of their son Shiloh. Fortunately,
all of the funds for these photos have
been donated to a charitable foundation
set up by Brad and Angelina.

Judged
Believe it or not, I met my friend at
a yard sale when we were both reach-
ing for the same baby item.. Now,
four years later, we get our children
together for play dates. My son
Robby is the typical boy. He loves
fire engines and police cars and wears
his police badge wherever he goes.
When we get together with my friend
though, play is a little different.
Her daughter Mary likes to dress up
and play wedding. One day when we
arrived, Mary immediately brought
my son to her pretend alter. "Let's play
wedding," she said abruptly. "I prom-
.jse to love you forever." Grabbing his
hand she continued, "Now you go."
Looking rather stunned, Robby
said the only vow he knew, "You
have the right to remain silent..."
