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.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: Do I have to pay for a missed dental
appointment
A: That's a good question and a matter for
you to discuss with your dentist. Policies
vary. Many dentists will require that you
give at least 24 hours notice when
canceling an appointment. This gives the.
dentist time to schedule'a replacement
appoint so .the dentist's time is not
wasted. If you don't meet the dentist's
requirement for notice, he may charge
you for the full or partial cost of an office.
visit. .
If you are sick, there may be other
considerations. For instance, if you have
a fever, or any ailment, that affects your
ability to breathe or swallow, it's
understandable that you may want to
cancel an appointment. In fact, if you
have an active herpes virus or a cold sore
around the mouth, yolir dentist may
actually ask you to cancel an
appointment.
The best way to resolve this issue is to
discuss it thoroughly with your dentist so
that you both understand whats expected
on the subject of missing an appointment,
even If it means putting something In
writing. As with any' of the health
professionals you deal with, your
relationship with your dentist has to be
one'that Involves trust and understanding.

Osteoporosis Means Brittle Bones
The hallmark of a condition we refer to as osteoporosis is
characterized by progressively weakened and brittle bones.
Inadequate amounts of calcium and phosphorous contribute to this
debilitating condition. Symptoms include back pain, stooped
posture, and bone fractures. Between the ages of 25 and 35, our peak
bone mass is achieved. In the years following, bone mass steadily
decreases, particularly in women. Adequate amounts of exercise,
calcium, and vitamin D are essential for maintenance of bone health.
Various prescription medications are available to decrease bone
loss and increase bone density over time. Bisphosphonate drugs,
such as alendronate (Fosamax) and risedronate (Actonel), work by
inhibiting bbne breakdown, preserving bone mass, and increasing
.bone density. Zoledronic acid (Reclast) is a bisphosphonate that is
administered intravenously once a year. Raloxifene (Evista) is a
selective estrogen receptor modulator, which provides advantages to
bone density similar to those of estrogen. Calcitonin (Miacalcin) is a
synthetic hormone that works to slow bone l9ss. Tamoxifen
(Nolvadex) is also a synthetic hormone that provides the benefits of
estrogen on bone, and also helps reduce the risk of breast cancer in
women at high risk. '99F

4th, 5th, 6th graders shine at public speaking contest


By Brian Estevez
Suwannee County 4-H

More than 1,400 young people in fourth, fifth and sixth
grades participated in the Suwannee County 4-H
Tropicana Public Speaking contest this spring. The
countywide contest had nine school winners who'
competed at the district contest held at the Suwannee
County school board office.
Kyler Gray, from Suwannee Intermediate School,
placed first in the 4th and 5th grade division. Hailey Hall.
of Branford Elementary and homeschooler Fallon Kerr
took second and third place, respectively. In the 6th
grade division, Lauren Suggs, from Branford High
School, took first place. Brandon Furry from Suwannee
Middle School and Taylor Swindell from Westwood
Christian Academy took second and third place,
respectively.
By taking first place in their divisions, Gray and Suggs
were awarded full scholarships to attend 4-H Camp


Cherry Lake in Madison County this summer. Winners
were also awarded plaques and medallions. Judges for
the district contest included Tina Kennon, Suzanne
Tillman and Meri Harrell.
The 4-H Tropicana Public Speaking contest helps
thousands of young people in fourth, fifth and sixth grade
annually learn how to write and deliver a speech. Youth
learn how to select a topic, create and write a speech,., and
present it in front of others. Youth are judged at the
classroom, school, and district level on both composition
and presentation of their speeches.
The program is administered through the University of
Florida IFAS Extension 4-H Youth Development
program, with material provided by the Tropicana
Corporation, and in partnership with local schools and
teachers. Additionally, the program meets Sunshine State
standards and helps students acquire required benchmarks
that are assessed by the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test.
Tropicana has sponsored the contest since 1969 and

NFCC Allied Health Director Nita Fico promptly
invited the SHTC instructors to bring their students over
to the NFCC campus to visit and utilize the college's
simulation lab for clinical exercises and experiences in
obstetrics, newborn care and cardio-pulmonary
resuscitation. Seventeen SHTC practical nursing students
attended the clinical at NFCC, directed by NFCC nursing
instructor and lab coordinator Julie Walden, on May 21
along with McCreary arid Howard.
"It was an exuberating experience," said NIcCre-ai,
"The students thought the lab was outstanding and
wonderful. They truly enjoyed the experience and would
be glad to go, back anytime."
McCreary, now an instructor and director of the
Practical Nursing program at SHTC, is an alumna of the
NFCC Practical Nursing program, graduating in 1983.
She continued her education at Valdosta State University
receiving 'a Bachelor's degree in nursing and was named
an NFCC Outstanding Alumni in 2008 for her dedication
to education. McCreary has been an instructor at SHTC
for the past five years and fellow instructor Earlene
Howard has taught at SHTC for four years.
"I feel that NFCC is al outstanding college," said
McCreary. "NFCC was an excellent starting point for my
career in nursing and is a great asset to our community."
Suwannee-Hamilton Technical students participating in
the clinical at NFCC were Christina Mahan, Cindy Ward,
Amy Walker, Trunesha Crawford, Melissa McCray,
Heather Humphrey, Krystyna Taylor, Mary Herring,
Debra Ashe, Destiny Lemming, Jim Moon, Pam Brown,
Pepper Newman, Greg Coe and Bobbi Brantley.

OPINION

Sometimes


expressions
elude us


' Recently I used an expression ,
that apparently didn't register '
with some folks. I said, "If you
shoot in the creek long enough, -
you're bound,to hit a fish."
A fellow, who was from north
of the Mason-Dixon Line, asked me about that
expression. And I told him it simply meant that
sometimes we just rely on luck or repetition
when we don't have any other recourse. It's very
similar to the blind squirrel finding an acorn. Or,
if we vote long enough, we might actually elect a
congressman who truly believes in term limits.
But if.I'm betting on which comes first, I'll go
with a mess of fish with bullet wounds.
But I, too, run across phrasings whose meaning
eludes me.
For instance, I hear a lot about "consumer con-
fidence." A report released Monday showed con-
sumer confidence was up,-so the Dow went up. It
went down the next day. Did that mean that con-
sumer confidence only lasted 24 hours?
When I think of consumer confidence, I relate
it to my small world. It means if I buy a weed
eater, I'm confident that it will crank most of the
time and will last at least a few years. If I lose
my consumer confidence, it probably means I
bought an air-cooled outboard motor that always
'cranks when I leave the dock but won't drank
when I'm two miles downstream and ready to go
home.
But no one has ever called me up and asked
me if I have confidence in my consumerism And
it's all relevant, I think. I've never bought a salt-
shaker that didn't work. I've. never bought a door
latch that didn't work. I did buy a glass cutting ,
kit that did not have all the parts included. As
well, the directions were written in French. I had
.no confidence that I could make it work. I was
right.
So today the Christian Newswire had a story ,
titled "Rediscovering God in America." That
headline phrasing made me wonder about some
, things. Are the newswires that are not specifical-
ly labeled "Christian Newswire" considered to be
",Heathen Newswires?"
I've head some people say they only listen to
"Christian" music. Does that mean they only go
to "Christian" baseball games and only eat
"Christian" bologna?
, My next question: What does it mean to "redisK
cover God?" and more specifically "to rediscover'
God in America?"
Particularly in the South, we have churches al-
most on every corner, representing numerous de-
,nominations. They range from ornate "high
church" to camp meeting tents and storefronts. In
Sthe Judaeo-Christian teachings, God is every-
.'where. �
SSo this headline would imply that He left for a
while or perhaps someone left him. And suddenly
their "holy Geiger counter" picked Him up again.
I think this is just a "catch phrase" for nothing
better to say. That's just my opinion based on my
humble Baptist pine pew background. In short, I
wouldn't think that God got lost.
- And for the record, I've never shot a fish in the
: ereek. And I have no desire to. But I would like
to help elect some congressmen who believe in
, term limits.

OPINION


Americans love government


Philosopher Bertrand Rus-
sell suggested that "Men are
born ignorant, not stupid.
They are made stupid by edu-
cation." And, it was Albert
Einstein who explained, "In-
sanity: doing the same thing
over and over again and ex-
pecting different results." So
which is it -- stupidity, igno-
rance or insanity -- that ex-


plains the behavior of my fel-
low Americans who call for greater government in-
volvement in our lives?
According to latest Rasmussen Reports, 30 percent
of Americans believe congressmen are corrupt. Last
year, Congress' approval.rating fell to 9 percent, its
lowest in history. If the average American were asked
his opinion of congressmen, among the more polite
terms you'll hear are thieves and crooks, liars and ma-
nipulators, hustlers and quacks. But what do the same
people say when our nation faces a major problem?
"Government ought to do something!" When people
call for government to do something, it is as if they've
been befallen by amnesia and forgotten just who is
running government. It's the very people whom they
have labeled as thieves and crooks, liars and manipu-
lators, hustlers and quacks. .
Aside from the general level of disgust that Ameri-
cans have for congressmen, there's the question of
whether there is anything that Congress does well.
What about Social Security and Medicare? Congress
has allowed Social Security and Medicare to accumu-
late an unfunded liability of $101 trillion. That means
in order to pay promised elderly entitlement benefits,
Congress would have to put trillions in the bank today
earning interest. Congressional efforts to create "af-
fordable housing" have created today's financial
calamity. Congress props up failed enterprises such as
Amtrak and the U.S. Postal Service with huge cash
subsidies, and subsidies in the forms of special tax
treatment and monopoly rights. I can't think of any-
thing that Congress does well yet we Americans call
for them to take greater control over important areas
of our lives.
I don't think that stupidity, ignorance or insanity ex-
plains the love that many Americans hold for govern-,
ment; it's far more sinister and perhaps hopeless. I'll
give a few examples to make my case. Many Ameri-


cans want money they don't
personally own to be used fqr
what they see as good causes
such as handouts to farmers,
poor people, college students,
senior citizens and businesses.
If they privately took some-
one's earnings to give to a
farmer, college student or se-
nior citizen, they would be
hunted down as thieves and


carted off to jail. However,
they get Congress to do the identical thing, through its
taxing power, and they are seen as compassionate and
caring. In other words, people love government be-
cause government, while having neither moral nor
constitutional authority, has the legal and physical
might to take the property of one American and give it
to another.
The unanticipated problem with this agenda is that
as Congress uses its might to take what belongs to one
American to give to another, what President Obama
calls "spreading the wealth around," more and more
Americans will want to participate in the looting. It
will ultimately produce something none of us wants:
absolute control over our lives.
The path we're embarked upon, in the name of
good, is a familiar one. The unspeakable horrors of
Nazism, Stalinism and Maoism did not begin in.the
'30s and '40s with the men usually associated with
those names. Those horrors were simply the end result
of a long evolution of ideas leading to consolidation
of power in central government in the name of "social
justice." In Germany, it led to the Enabling Act of
1933: Law to Remedy the Distress of the People and
'the Nation and, after all, who could be against a reme-
dy to relieve distress? Decent but misguided Germans,
who would have cringed at the thought of what Nazi
Germany would become, succumbed to Hitler's
charisma.
Today's Ambricans, enticed, perhaps enchanted, by
charismatic speeches, are ceding so minuch power to
Washington, and like yesteryear's Germans are build-
ing the Trojan Horse for a future tyrant.

The Voice of Small Business

Forcing small businesses to offer


health insurance will kill jobs


By Dan Danner
Congress is about to take up legislation that would have
profound and long-lasting effects on 17 percent of our na-
tion's economy-our healthcare system.
Most Americans agree that the system is broken and it's
high time it's fixed. Small employers, who have the hard-
est time offering and maintaining health insurance for
their employees, are at the forefront of those demanding
solutions now.
Yet many in Washington would address the problem by
making all employers, large and small, offer health insur-
ance. You just can't force small business owners to pay for
something they can't afford. That would be the biggest
mistake policymakers could make. This policy, if enacted,
would do great harm and virtually no good.
There are three arguments against this idea:
* It's a regressive tax that falls mainly on low-income
individuals, who will pay for this obligation through jobs
lost, depressed wages and the erosion of other benefits.
* It doesn't distinguish between those people who need
help to purchase health insurance and those who don't.
* It's unfair to small businesses and their employees be-
cause it imposes punitive costs while ignoring their cen-
tral problem-high prices resulting from their lack of mar-
ket purchase power and the lack of a competitive insur-
ance market.
Reforming the insurance marketplace would do far
more to help small businesses and their employees by en-


during greater competition. That in turn would encourage
insurers to keep prices under control.
To simply pass a law that would force employers to do
something they just can't afford is destructive in any eco-
nomic environment, but in these incredibly trying times,
it's absolutely lethal. And it would hardly have the posi-
tive effects so many are eager to claim. This policy, if en-
acted, would be a job killer, plain and simple.
A recent National Federation of Independent Business
research project found that if you force employers to offer
health insurance, it would destroy more than 1.6 million
jobs (assuming the employer contributes half the cost).
Small firms would suffer the most, accounting for 66 per-
cent of the jobs lost.
Think about it like this, because it may give you pause:
Employees won't have health insurance, nor could they af-
ford it, if they don't have jobs. In a time when we're look-
ing to our country's job creators-don't forget small busi-
ness creates two-thirds of new jobs each year-now is not
the time to impose a new burden on the very people we're
counting on to lead us out of this recession.
If we want to help Americans access healthcare, we
need to tackle the real problem, and that is cost. We need
to transform the broken marketplace of today into one
where quality, affordable health insurance is available in
the private market for everyone.
Dan Danner is president and CEO of the National Fed-
eration of Independent Business in Washington, D.C.

Branford woman earns degree from the University of Florida
against all odds and stands her ground against the FCAT

Lynch at Nell's in Branford.

By Stephenie Livingston
As she sat at a back table in Nell's Restau-
rant in Branford, barely, a soul walked in
whose name, occupation and family history
Quintilla Lynch didn't know. Her story has no
major news hook. She's saved no lies and
has.never climbed Everest. But those who
read it may feel a touch richer.
Lynch has lived in Branford since her
birth in 1932, a time when the tow\ n had ..
no water system, only one paved road.
and everyone cooked over a hard-
wood stove. Life in Branford, ho\\ -
ever, was not much different than
it is today, except for the abun-
dance of outhouses, back porch
water pumps and a movie the-
ater. Kids still spent summers
swimming in the springs and
Working on local farms.
"We all worked together,
played together, we did -
everything together," she
said of her childhood
friends. Lynch still remem- -
bers when Branford got its . .
first street light.,
"People would come from
four blocks around and we
would have a cookout in the. .
middle of the street under the' --
only light in town," she recalled
Lynch's family moved to Bran -


ford in 1916 when her fa-
ther opened Branford's
first blacksmith shop.
"He put up shop under
a chinaberry tree. My
brothers and sister and I
would shoot the hard
berries at each other,"
reminisced Lynch as she
stared out of a window at


Nell's. Lynch's father, Drew Fletcher, known
by everyone in town as "Uncle Drew," later
opened Branford's first gas station as well.
As a teenager, Lynch worked long hours in
tobacco
fields. ..... .. -..

"There wasn't anything else to do," she noted.
She spent all her money on new clothes and
at the twenty-five cent movie theater that
thrived in Branford at the time. At just 15 she
graduated high school and received the
school's highest academic honor. "School was
really wonderful, I loved learning," Lynch re-
called. "I decided I wanted to teach at a.
young age because of how much I loved
school."
However, her dream of becoming a teacher
was put on hold when she placed second in a
state scholarship contest and won no money
for college.
This small setback did not hinder her dream
for long.
After marrying and having two children,
Lynch began taking classes at North Florida
Community College, then only in its second
year of existence. There wasn't even a build-
ing yet. '
"We had classes in the Women's Club or
the library, wherever we could find space,"
said Lynch. Lynch would ride a bus daily
from Branford to Madison, leaving at 6 a.m.
and returning to Branford 12 hours later.
"I still cooked breakfast and dinner for my
kids. This is why I do not understand when
people say they can't do it. I did it and raised
a family at the same time," said Lynch.
After nine years, illness, raising a family,
working several part-time jobs, and commut-
ing everyday over two years from Branford to
Gainesville, Lynch completed her degree in
education at the University of Florida.
"I wanted that degree. I wanted to teach,"
said Lynch as she turned up the volume to a
classical music station during the drive to her
home just outside of Branford.
After graduation. Lynch faced yet another
roadblock on the road to becoming a
teacher. There were no openings in
' Suwannee County. Eventually, Lynch
SH- 1v as able to find a teaching spot in
Columbia County. And in 1974
Lynch began teaching social
studies full-time. "That was
my bag. I love social stud-
ies," she said.
In 1998, Lynch was
named Columbia County's
Social Studies Teacher of
th. e Year.
"Most students could-
n't care less about an-
cient civilizations. So I
S-. would rack my brain
and come up with ideas
to keep them interested,"
according to Lynch. One
technique Lynch used to
spark interest, was to
have her students create a
chronicle of their lives
from birth through sixth
grade.
- "I would encourage them to
think of the past as a jumping
off point for the future," she said.
Lynch retired in 1998 after the
' Florida Comprehensive Assessment
'Test was implemented.
"I always said I'd never teach to a test,"
said L) nch, the lines in her forehead deepen-

Branford Woman's Club well represented at Orlando convention


Submitted
Branford Woman's Club members
Kathy Stark, arts chairperson and presi-
dent, and Elaine Nemeth attended the an-
nual FFWC Spring Convention in Orlan-
do April 17-19, where hundreds of club
inembers went for a weekend of fun and
learning. The theme and special project
for the upcoming two-year administration
is "Sharing Hope for a Better Tomorrow"
to support Heifer International.
Heifer's mission is to end poverty and
hunger while caring for the earth. They
do this by providing livestock and trees
to families and communities in need, both
here in the United States and around the
world. With these gifts of animals come
training and education in their care as
well as education on sound agricultural
practices to enhance our earth.
This year the GFWC Branford
Woman's Club together with other GFWC
woman's clubs throughout Florida held


many fundraising events for this cause.
At the Spring Convention, FFWC Presi-
dent Linda Dennis presented a donation
to Kate Merrill of Heifer International
with a check for $102,500. Merrill shared
her thanks and passion during the dona-
tion award dinner: "...One thing that I am
truly thankful for in 2009 is that I get to
oversee this partnership with GFWC
Florida. Is that selfish? I not only get to
spend time with you wonderful ladies, the
most fun, might I add, but I also get to
tell my colleagues about how special it is
to watch thousands of women get excited
about helping others ... just think about
the generations of people that will be
helped because of your passion right now.
We are grateful to have your support, and
I hope that you wake up every morning
and go to sleep every night knowing that.
Best wishes to you all, and I look forward

O'BRIEN

PI m^w E


I was hoping for a nice
sunny weekend ... that's
what.the weatherman
said Wednesday and
Thursday, but he was
wrong ... again!!! If it
wasn't for e-mails I
wouldn't know what was
going on any more. But
that's about to change,
and I'm really going to
make up for a lot of. lost
time once I get the new
batteries in my old
wheelchair. I can't wait to
get out when I want,
where I want, without
having to wait until
someone is available to
help me with the chair
I've had to use these last
few months. Sometimes
newer is NOT better, I
can attest to that.
I hate to see the phlox
and golden flowers lose
their beautiful blossoms,
but looks like they have
pretty much come tp the,
end of their season. I'll
be watching for the next
seasonal flowers to show
up. It sure makes driving
anywhere a pleasure,
don't you think? Right
now the climbing roses
are giving us huge'
bunches of deep red'
flowers up against the
house. The other roses
aren't doing too well. All
this heavy rain has liter-
ally beaten the flowers



Harmony


in the


Streets

Sheriff Tony Cameron,
the sheriffs office and the
Florida Sheriffs Youth
Ranches will sponsor the
Harmony in the Streets
-camp again in Branford.
The camp will be an ac-
tion-packed; fun-filled
five-day event and Will
take place at the high
school gym in Branford
from July 6-10. The camp
is for children ages 6-12
and will include arts,
crafts, water activities,
team sports, workshops,
environmental education
and law enforcement
demonstrations.
Contact Mary Maxwell
at the Suwannee County
Sheriffs Office at 386-
208-8693 for more infor-
mation and an applica-.
tion. All applications
must be returned to
Maxwell by June 26.


right off the stalks.
Maybe if this rain lets up
a bit the blossoms will
have a chance to form
and expand long enough
I can cut some to bring in
the house and enjoy
those that are still on the
bush. And we didn't get
much time to enjoy the
pink and white climbing
roses that only last two
or three weeks in the
spring for the same rea-
son.....the rain beat them
off their stem before they
had a chance to drop off
on their own.
This week please con-
tinue to pray for Alice
Rumbaugh who is home
now but still dealing with
the aftermath of her re-_
cent surgery. And also
keep in your prayers Car-
olyn (Mrs. Albert)
Roberts, Frances Holtz-
claw and Miss Josie Gr-
isham. Pray for travel
grace for Carla Suggs as.
she travels up to be with
her Dad who was hospi-
talized last week, and for
healing for her Dad. We
have been praying for a
couple of people who are
dealing with serious can-
cer problems, so please
pray that God's will is
done in their lives and
their families who are
with them.
And please pray that
God will help the many
people who are suffering
many problems due to
the economy in this
country and right here in
our county. I have en- '
countered a few families
who are trying so very
hard to keep their homes
because at least one of
the parents has lost
his/her job and their sav-
ings are being depleted


just to keep up % ith
household bills and buN
groceries I kno' m\
grocery bill has grown
enough in the last five or
six months that a lot of
little 'extras' (and I'm not
talking about luxury
items, either) have been
cut from my usual
monthly grocery list. My
heart and prayers are
with these families that
have small children to
care for.
If you have a computer,
please check out the new
Web site for the Suwan-
nee County Animal Shel-
ter. Go to www.suwan-
neecountyanimalshelter.o
rg and check out all the
information about the
shelter, our animals, our
staff and our volunteers.
We will be working on
the expansion of our
shelter in the next couple
of months starting with a
new septic system. After
that we'll be ready to
start the actual construc-
tion work. We are still in
need of volunteers to
help with the labor. If
you can help in any way,
please call the shelter at
208-0072 for more infor-
mation and to give your
name, phone number, and
in what capacity you can
help.
Here are some great
ways to deal with the
burdens of life:
"Accept that some days
you're the pigeon, and
some days you're the stat-
ue."
"Always keep your
words soft and sweet just
in case you have to eat
them."
"Always wear clothes
that make you look good
in case you should die in
the middle of something."
"Drive carefully. It's
not only cars that can be
'recalled' by their maker."
"If you can't be kind, at
least have the decency to
be vague.".
"If you lend someone
$20 and never see that
person again, it was prob-
ably worth it."
Have a wonderful
Week. God bless!

thing," Boatright said. "I
just wanted to very gra-
ciously bow out."
He said some students
were beginning to figure it
out, however.
S"When I started clean-
ing filing cabinets out
,orome students became
suspicious," said Boa-
tright. "I already signed a
contract for the next year."
Boatright, 73, said he
had wanted to become a
teacher since being in Net-
tie Baisden's first-grade
clzts.
g. knew in the first
grad�4e I was going to
teah," said Boatright. "I
know it was the right thing
because I did it for a long
tirp and enjoyed it.
Teaching was not a job but
w. a way of life."
He loved it so much he
oW. missed eight days of
work in 50 years.
Boatright began teach-
ing American history on
Aug. 14, 1958 at the age
.,.22. He graduated from
Aurora College (now Au-
rora University) in Illinois
wfiere he received a bach-
elrs of arts in social sci-
ence. While attending col-
lege he made $1.10 an
hour washing pots and
pans at an area business.
Any regrets after teach-
ij.50 years?
"Absolutely not," said
Boatright. "There was
neyer a day I woke up and.
sail I wish I didn't go to
school that day."
He said he mulled over
the thought of stepping
doyp for a couple of years
,pd,tJhought 50 was a good
round number.
"I had 50 years in and


teaching was getting m6re
complicated with disci-
pline, technology and so
on, but it was no.t an easy
decision to make," said
Boatright.
But it is one he's glad he
made.
"I don't have to get up as
early, make lesson plans or
worry about kids trying to
make FCAT," said Boa-
tright.
In addition to teaching at
SHS, Boatright taught
adult education twice a
week for 42 years at
Suwannee-Hamilton Tech-
nical Center and summer
school for 44. He also
helped coordinate the
prom for about 20 years.
"I thoroughly enjoyed
the students," said Boa-
tright. "I was fair, strict
and demanded a lot of
work out of them."
Boatright said he has
taught thousands of stu-
dents, going back three
generations.
Suwannee High Princi-
pal Dawn Lamb said Boa-
tright would be missed at


SHS.
"Mr. Sherwood Boa-
tright dedicated his life to
the young people of
Suwannee County through
his 50 years of service at
SHS," Lamb said by email.
"His tireless dedication
was made obvious by his
early morning arrival each
day and his endless hours
of service to generations of
young people. SHS is not
the same without him. He
is missed."
School board chairman
Jerry Taylor called Boa-
tright an icon.
"He's one of those peo-
ple that was tough but fair
and he always demanded
your best," said Taylor.
"He was on of those peo-
ple that believed in an hon-
est days work for an hon-
est days pay."
Boatright spends most
his days on his farm and
working in his home, the
same home he was born in.
The rest of the days he
spends in his antiques
store on llth Street in Live
Oak.

"It was a tragic, tragic
accident," said Chief

Olivia's grandfather

wanted to warn folks of the
dangers TVs can create.
"If we can do that and
reach out and save just
maybe one child," said
Leatherman. "I want to

Quota changes make hunting fairer.


Most hunters know that
the best time to catch a
monster buck off guard is
during the beginning of --
hunting season. That's why
many of us enjoy hunting
the archery and muzzle-
loading gun seasons - and
why we can't miss opening
weekend of the general gun v
season, After that, lots of
gunfire breaks out and
those big boys get noctur-
nal, making hunting more
difficult.
If you plan to hunt on Outta
public land next season,
you've probably heard that W Oo 0
the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation By TOny
Commission (FWC) made
some changes to 'its quota
permit system.
Phase I of the application process for
most hunt types has been extended from a
10-day period to a month, and takes place
June 1-30. During this period, just like
before, you may turn in only one work-
sheet for each type of quota hunt. Re-
member: Unless exempt, you must have
an up-to-date management area permit
when applying for a quota permit.
The old archery/muzzleloading work-


sheet has been broken into
two separate worksheets -
one for archery hunts and
the other for muzzleloader
- ^hunts. There is a new wild
hog worksheet, as well as
the familiar general gun
worksheet. So you now
have the opportunity to re-
ceive four permits instead
of just two.
All quota permit work-
sheets are available at
MyFWC.com/Hunting by
clicking under "Limited
the Entry Hunts" or at a tax
collector's office or license
S agent. As before, you may
fill in your application
)ung with up to five hunt choic-
es. During phases I and II,
you may be drawn for no
more than one quota permit per hunt type.
During Phase III, you can submit addi-
tional worksheets and receive up to five
quota permits per hunt type.
Submit completed worksheets to any li-
cense agent or, tax collector's office.
Those with a valid Florida driver's license
can submit worksheets online at
www.wildlifelicense.com/fl.
The drawings to decide who gets these
coveted quota hunt permits are July 7-17.


Results will be posted at
MyFWC.com/Hunting. Those selected
will receive quota permits in the mail.
Others get a preference point for next
year's drawing, which improves the
chance of being selected. If you're unable
to use your quota permit, mail it back to
Tallahassee so it can be reissued to some-
one else during Phase II. If it was issued
'in Phase I and it's postmarked prior to the
first day of the hunt, you'll receive a pref-
erence point. Accumulated preference
points under the old system apply to the
new system.
Except for the Blackwater Wildlife
Management Area (WMA) dog hunts and
Holton Creek WMA mobility-impaired
hunts, all quota permits are nontransfer-
able. Only the person named on the per-
mit can use it. This change makes the
quota system fairer by spreading great
hunting opportunities out to more folks. If
you gave up on applying for quota hunts
because you never drew the area you
wanted, I urge you to try it this year.
There's a new guest permit also. To
many folks and me it's more fun to go
hunting with a buddy, so the FWC created
a way for people to bring a friend on a
quota hunt.
For every quota permit (excluding
Blackwater WMA dog hunts and Holton
Creek WMA mobility-impaired hunts),


one nontransferable guest permit may be
obtained, until the last day of the hunt, at
tax collectors' offices or license agents; ',
use the quota permit holder's customer ID
number and hunt number. The guest must
have a valid management area permit (un-
less exempt) and all other necessary per--
mits and license for the specific hunt.
Some stipulations: Both permit holder
and guest must enter and exit the WMA
together, share the same vehicle and share%
a single person's bag limit. The guest ma
hunt only when the quota permit holder
on the area. On WMAs that have zone
tags, the permit holder and guest must
hunt in the same zone.
On 37 of the WMAs, there's a'bag limit
of one deer, so I suggest you and your
guest set your cell phones on vibrate and
text your buddy when you shoot a deer.
That way, he'll know you've filled the
bag limit. In places without a signal, you
could use inexpensive two-way radios to
let each other know you got one.
If you'd like to apply for one or more oj
the FWC's many fall quota hunt permits,
you need to do so in June.
.Tony Young is the media relations coor-i
dinatorfor the FWC's Division of Hunt-
ing and Game Management. You can .
reach him with questions about quota pen
mits or how to apply at
Tony. Young@MyFWC.com.

Kathleen Forister joins .

membership of American

Angus Association
Kathleen Forister of Live Oak is a new member of the
American Angus Association�, reports Bryce Schumann,
CEO of the national breed registry organization in Saint
Joseph, Mo.
The American Angus Association, with nearly 33,000
active adult and junior members, is the largest beef cattle
registry association in the world. Its computerized
records include detailed information on nearly 16 million
registered Angus.
The association records ancestral information and
keeps production records on individual animals for its
members. These permanent records help members select
and mate the best animals. in their herds to produce high
quality, efficient breeding cattle which are then recorded
with the American Angus Association. Most of these'reg-
istered Angus are used by the U.S. farmers and ranchers
who raise high quality beef for U.S. consumption.


Summer reading list encourages

'exploration of state parks

List gives readers the opportunity to learn about many of
Florida's natural treasures


TALLAHASSEE - In celebration.
of World Environment Day, the
Florida Department of Education
(DOE) and the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection (DEP)
today announced a recommended
summer reading list that promotes
the beauty and adventure found in
many of Florida's natural wonders.
Selections in the list provide a focus
on Florida's State Parks but also of-
fer information about other unique
ecological settings.
"Students can continue their
learning in fun ways by reading
about and exploring our State Parks
during the summer months," said
Education Commissioner Dr. Eric J.
Smith. "I encourage families to take
the'tie to celebrate Florida's rich
and diverse backdrop through litera-
cy; not only this summer, but
throughout the year."
In addition to the summer reading
list, DEP's recently launched Redis-
cover Florida - 100 Ways in 100
Days campaign encourages families.
to enhance their Florida "discovery".
experience. The Rediscover Florida


effort aims to increase awareness of
all the activities Florida's public
lands offer - from the traditional
(hiking, biking, and camping) to the
unique (festivals, historic reenact-
ments and museums). Visitors to
the Rediscover Florida Web site can.
explore an interactive list of 100 ac-
tivities and track how many, of the: i
activities they can complete. .
"Summer is the perfect time for -
students to expand their literary
horizons and become engaged in
protecting the environment by read-
ing about the outdoors," said DEP
Secretary Michael W. Sole. "By
promoting literature focused on
Florida's diverse natural resources,
we hope to harness students' inter-
est in environmental stewardship
and academic success."
Research indicates that children
who do not continue to read during
the summer months risk losing
progress made during the school
year. To help families get started on
their summer learning and explor-
ing experience, the summer reading
list offers selections such as:


- Read Henry the Impatient Heron
by Donna Love and visit Anastasia
State Park in St. Augustine (grades
K-3)

? Read Island of the Blue Dol-
phins by Scot O'Dell and visit
Long Key State Park in Long Key
(grades-4-5)

- Read John James Audubon: The
Making of an American by Richard
Rhodes and visit Alfred B. Maclay
Gardens State Park in Tallahassee
(grades 6-8)

* Read The Everglades, River of
Grass by Marjorie Stoneman Dou-
glas and visit the Everglades at
Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State
Park in Copeland (grades 9-12)

Wild hog hunt permits available through June 30


Hunters have until June 30 to apply for a permit to
hunt wild hogs on the Steinhatchee Springs Wildlife
Management Area (WMA).
The Suwannee River Water Management District
and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission are coordinating two wild hog hunts Feb. 26-
28, 2010 and March 5-7, 2010.
The Steinhatchee Springs WMA - located in
Lafayette, Dixie and Taylor counties - is owned by-
the District. FWC manages hunting activities on the
property.
Anyone who is interested in the hunts may apply
for a quota permit at any county tax collector or li- ;
cense agent. Hunters can also visit
http://MyFWC.com to apply.
Edwin McCook, District land management special-,
ist, said although hunting seasons are held annually
on the WMA, this is the first wild hog hunt in which
hunting dbgs may accompany hunters.
Fifty no-cost permits will be issued per hunt. Each
permit allows a hunting group of up to two hunters. A
third person may go if a guest permit is obtained. .
(Read the procedure for obtaining the guest permit-on
the Wild Hog Quota Permit Worksheet.) No more
than three free-running dogs may accompany each
group.
A hunt brochure is available at:
http://myfwc.com/RECREATION/Hunt_WMABrochs


.htm. Look under North Central for Steinhatchee
Springs PSGHA (hog).
Karen Parker, FWC public information coordinator,
said hog hunts are popular with the public.
"It's an opportunity t9 provide more recreation for
hunters," Parker said.
In addition, the hunts will help regulate what is
now a large
population of wild hogs that are damaging the
property by rooting up planted pines and destroying
endangered plant species.
Florida's Quota Hunt Program prevents overcrowd-
ing and controls the harvest of game on WMAs, thus
providing hunters with quality hunting experiences.
Quotas (maximum number of hunters permitted on
WMAs) are based on an area's size, habitat, game
populations and rules;
Hunters wanting to use WMAs during quota peri-
ods must submit the appropriate quota permit applica-
tion. Most quota permits are.issued by random draw-
ing. There are several types of quota permit applica-
tions, and eligible applicants are allowed to submit
one of each type.
Quota permits are issued free; however, unless ex-
empt all applicants must have a valid Management
Area Permit or license that includes a Management
Area permit when submitting their quota permit ap-
plication.


New FWC quota process allows for guest permit


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-'
mission will be accepting applications until June 30 to
be included in a random drawing for quota permits to
hunt on Florida's wildlife management areas (WMAs)
next season.
This year, there are a few rule changes pertaining to
the Quota Hunt
Permit Program to improve the state's regulation of
hunting on WMAs. For instance, the FWC has created
a guest permit so quota permit holders can take a
friend hunting with them.i. The guest can obtain the per-
mit by using the quota permit holder's customer ID
number.. "
The FWC suggests hunters wait to obtain their guest
permits until just before their hunt begins. Once a guest
permit is issued it can not be changed. Guest permits
will not 'be available until Aug. 1.
In addition, quota hunt permits are no longer trans-
ferable, so individuals will not be able to hoard permits
and reduce other hunters' chances of being selected,
ensuring a fairer distribution of hunting opportunities
among more hunters.
If a hunter does not draw. a permit this year, he will
get a preference point that will increase his odds of
getting drawn next year.
Preference points can accumulate in subsequent
years.
More hunt choices are available. Hunters may apply


for up to nine hunt types: archery, muzzleloading gun,
general gun, wild hog, mobility impaired, track, air-
boat, youth and family.
On many WMAs, quota permits are required for
hunters wishing to hunt during specified periods of the
general guni season, as well as for other hunts, includ-
ing the archery and muzzleloading gun seasons. Quota
permits also are required for hunts involving airboats,
track vehicles, youths, families and mobility-impaired
persons.
Worksheets are available by clicking under "Limited
Entry Hunts" at MyFWC.com/Hunting. They also are
available from county tax collectors' offices,. license
agents and FWC regional offices.
.To apply, take a worksheet to any license agent or
tax collector's office or apply online at www.wildlifeli-
cense.com/fl through midnight June 30.
Worksheets for recreational use permits also are
available at MyFWC.com/Hunting. The FWC issues
recreational use permits on a first-come, first-served
basis beginning 10 a.m. (EDT) June 4, 2009 - March
31,'2010.

Entry Hunts" for more information on how to apply for
permits, plus application periods and deadlines. For

permit changes, click on "New Quota Permit Changes"

Americans love their computers. In fact, a recent
study shows that the number of Americans who use the
Internet has more than doubled over the past 10.years,
reaching nearly three quarters of the U.S. population.
Nearly half of all Americans have a high-speed Internet
connection at home, compared to only five percent at
the start of the decade. The study indicates that Internet
use is even beginning to outpace traditional media.
'Younger Americans spend more time online than in
front of a television.
But as most people know, the Internet is a 'gateway to
more than media and entertainment. It is a highly ac-
cepted way of doing business. As Americans become

nience of doing things on the Internet, online business

In times like these, every dollar counts


By Paul D. Barnes
Social Security Regional Commissioner in Atlanta

Fathers are often known for their good advice,
whether it's how to catch a ball, ace a job interview,
grill the perfect burger or get the best deal on a new
car.
But if your father is struggling with the high cost of
prescription.drugs, maybe it's time for you, to give
him a few words of advice. This Father's Day, you
may be able to help your dad save an average of
$3,900 a year on his prescription drug costs. Here's
how.
.If your father, or any father figure you know, is cov-
ered by Medicare and has limited income and re-
sources, he may qualify for extra help available
through Social Security to pay part of his monthly
premiums, annual deductibles and prescription co-
payments. The extra help is worth an average of
$3,900 per year. To determine if your father is eligi-
ble, Social Security needs to know his income and the
value of his savings, investments and real estate (other
than the home he lives in). To qualify for the extra
help, he must be receiving Medicare and also have:
Income limited to $16,245 for an individual or
$21,855 for a married couple living together. Even if
his annual income is higher, he still may be able to re-
ceive some help with monthly premiums, annual de-
ductibles and prescription co-payments. Some exam-
ples where income may be higher include if he or his


wife:
- Support other family members who live with
them;
- Have earnings from work; or
- Live in Alaska or Hawaii; and
Resources limited to $12,510 for an individual or
$25,010 for a married couple living together. Re-
sources include such things as bank accounts, stocks
and bonds. We do not count his house or car as re-
sources.
Social Security has an easy-to-use online applica-
tion that you can complete. You can find it at
http://www.socialsecurity.gov/prescriptionhelp.
To apply by phone or have an application mailed to
you, call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-
800-325-0778) and ask for the Application for Help
with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs (SSA-
1020). Or go to the nearest Social Security office.
To learn more about the Medicare prescription drug
plans and special enrollment periods, visit
http://www.medicare.goV or call 1-800-MEDICARE
(1-800-633-4227; TTY 1-877-486-2048).
So this Father's Day, as the meat is grilling, you're
playing catch and talking about your own kids, fit in a
bit of good advice for Dad advice he can put to use
. right away. Tell him about the extra help with his pre-
scription drug costs. In fact, you can help him apply
. online in minutes at http://www.socialsecurity.gov/pre-
scriptionhelp. After all, in times like these, every dol-
lar counts.

Better Grillin'
My children grill a great deal over
the summer and I noticed an alu-
minum pan filled with water. I asked
my son-in-law about the pan and he
said it keeps everything he grills
moist. What a great idea!
- Jeanne W. in Dublin, OH,

Better Cheap Sunglasses
Do you need very durable and
highly protective sunglasses? I found
them at my local home improvement
store for less than $9. Ask for "eye
protection," not sunglasses. I took
mine to my ophthalmologist and he
said that they are made of polycar-
bonate and are 99-percent UVA and
UVB protective. They are sturdy and
wrap around close to my face to keep
out those rays.
- H.M. in Orlando, FL.

Quick Cookies
Whenever I make chocolate chip
cookies, I save some of the dough
and freeze it. I put it in a large re-
sealable bag, roll it out to about half
of an inch thick.and then freeze.
When I want a few cookies for
dessert, I break off chunks (the ,
dough is still semi-soft, e\en while
frozen), roll them into balls, and bake
them in the toaster, oven. No need to
buy those "ready to bake" cookies
ever again!
- Esther B. in Rincon, GA

Protecting Boy's Pants
My son goes through pants at an


amazing rate. After he wore through
the knees on several pairs after only
wearing them a couple times, I decid-
ed I had to do something. I've found
that sewing or ironing knee patches
on the inside of the jeans or pants be-
fore they get holes will extend their
life dramatically. Initially, I was con-
cerned the patches would rub my
son's knees, but he says he doesn't
even feel them. Since I've started do-
ing this, he actually outgrows his
pants!
- Karen G. in Haymarket, VA

Just One More Day
If you normally grocery shop every
week, try spending your normal bud-
geted amount for food, but try to last
eight days until the next shopping
trip. Shop and spend the budgeted
amount for food and try to last until
eight days instead of seven again. In
two weeks, you have saved two days'
on food. In seven weeks, you should
be able to save one whole week's
grocery money. Using this tip, in a
year, you should save over seven
weeks of food budget! In my house,
seven weeks at $80 per week saves
me $560.

Easy Shower Curtain Cleaning


Once a month, I throw our plastic
shower curtain, bath toys, plastic
bath mat as well as our combs and
Sbrushies in the washing machine
along with a couple of white towels.
SI wash them with hot Water, detergent
and bleach. When the load is done, I
put the towels in the dryer and let the
plastic items drain in the washer be-
fore putting them away. They all
come out clean and deodorized. It
makes the hairbrushes look brand


new, and I haven't had to re-
place our shower curtain or
bath mat in over six years.
- Cate S. in Sparks, NV


How Much?
I've noticed that laundry deter-
gent lids have markings that are diffi-
cult to read. They have lines inside;
but who can see them? Manufactur-
ers assume we will just give up and
fill the cup, wasting more detergent.
The result is overuse of detergent
when it's unnecessary. To remedy
this, use a black marker or nail polish
before using it the first time to clear-
ly mark the lines in the cup, or in-
stead of using their cup, use your
own to measure. A little goes a long
way so don't waste expensive and
precious drops of detergent.
- Shannon W.

Check Clearance First
I was recently reminded of some-
thing I've known for years but had
forgotten. When you go to a book-
store for a particular title or author,
check the clearance tables first.
I was reminded of this tip while in
Books-A-Million a few days ago. A
store employee saw me holding a pa-
perback and directed me to the clear-
ance section where the same book, in
hardback, was 50% cheaper! I
thanked the employee and resolved to
always check the clearance section
from inow on. I also used my dis-
count card for an extra 10% off.
- Pam W.

Doggie Care
I just got my eleven-pound dog
spayed and she had stitches on her
belly that 'she started to lick, which,
of course, is not good. I tried a'ban-
dage, which lasted about 30 seconds.


We
didn't
get that silly lampshade
for her head, which was $15 from the
vet and I'm sure not the most com-
fortable thing to wear.
We found a miracle solution, which
was a 12-month onezie that I had
from .my kids. It fit her perfectly and
snapped at the rear. When I let her
outside, I just had to unsnap the bot-
tom and she could go do her business
and come back-in.
- Michelle V.

Free Starter Pots
I have found that two-liter and one-
liter empty soda bottles make great
starter pots for flowers, herbs, etc.
Cut the top off and poke a hole in the
bottom of the "pot." Now you have
air .circulation and the bumps on the
bottom will catch extra water. You
can adjust the height of the pot easi-
ly. Roots can easily be seen for trans-
planting purposes. Any color soda
bottle will dot
You can't beat the price of these
"pots" and these can be used multiple
times. Once your pot has proved its
purpose, just toss in to the recycling'
bin!

Spirit Kids Music Camp draws 65 budding musicians

SYoungsters learn music traditions on the banks of the Suwannee


More than 65 budding musicians from
Miami to Lancaster, S.C. spent three
exciting days last month at the Spirit of
the Suwannee Music Park. These future
keepers of the traditions of old time
.music had the time of their young lives
learning to play mandolins, guitars,
fiddles, African drums and banjos in a
music camp designed to keep the
tradition of bluegrass and country music
flowing.
Most the students had never picked up
an instrument nor played in a concert
three days after classes began. But all
learned to play enough to participate in
the Sunday afternoon concert that.
amazed not only their parents, but often
times the young musicians themselves.
Each student went home with newfound


confidence that showed on-each
beaming face after the concert when
they received accolades from the
audience. . .
Held May 29-31 with all volunteer
teachers, the free Spirit Kids Music
Camp is a quarterly event sponsored by
the SOSMP in an effort to keep alive the
tradition of playing such instruments as
fiddles, banjos, mandolins, guitar and
African drums. SOSMP CEO/President
James Cornett believes that without
interest from. today's young people to
learn the music that has been passed
down for generations, the traditions
could one day die out.: The Cornett
family has long believed that today's
youth are the answer to tomorrow's
festivals that will be held at the SOSMP.


The Cornett family's deep concern to
keep tradition alive led to the
establishment of the music camp several
years ago and they remain committed to
the concept.
Camp director is Charley Dame, who
also teaches and organizes the event
four times each year. Three of the
instructors, Kelsey Schlegal-fiddle,
Ashley Schlegal-guitar and Brian
Samqels-drums, are former students of
the camp who now return to teach
others.
Dame points out that children's'
learning abilities and interpersonal skills
are enhanced, by the event, they get to
choose from a selection of songs what
to perform, instruments are provided for
those who don't have one for camp and


there's lots of fun other than learning
music such as games and a
parent/student chicken dinner on
Saturday night.
Dame said future plans call for week-
long summer camps, for more intense
study for advanced students and also an
after school program from September -

Dear Classified Guys,
My friend Mary and I met in the hos-
pital when we were giving birth to
our sons. Since then we've remained
close friends for almost ten years.
When she moved away a few years
ago, we continued our friendship by
talking on the telephone and sending
birthday gifts to each other's chil-
dren. I try to send presents that her
kids would enjoy and even call to ask
what they might like. Mary, on the
other hand, has a different view. One
year she gave my son a computer
game that must have been from a
yard sale. It was so outdated
(Windows 3.1) that he couldn't use it.
The next year's toy still had a yard
sale price sticker on it. Last year I
intercepted the present and replaced
it for one more his age level.
I'm all for yard sales and -' '
finding a good deal and .,.
even giving a used gift if '-
it's appropriate. However,
Mary seems to have lost her
taste. I can't decide if I should try to
tell her about the problem or just
continue to intercept her packages.
Cash: Some people have the "gift
for gifting" and can pick oui the perfect
present for just about anyone. For


Duane "Casi
& Todd'




others though, choosing a gift can be a
difficult task.
Carry: In your friend's case, there
could be any number of reasons for her
gift choices'. It could be budget relat-
ed, she could just have bad taste, or
most likely she probably doesn't know
much about your son's interests.
Although the two of you talk occasion-
ally, she may not pick up on the hints
or have a true picture of what your son
enjoys.
Cash: Since you've chosen to send
gifts to each other's children, consider
giving her a list well ahead of time on
gift ideas your son may enjoy. It would


SINS,






h" Holze
"Carry" Holze


not only give her some ideas, but also
. allow her enough time to find them at
yard sales at a good price if she chooses.
Carry: You should encourage her to
make a list for you as well. That way
she'll feel like it's an even trade, plus
you'll'have a better idea of things that
her son would enjoy.
Cash: You could also add gift cer-
tificates to your list, maybe to a toy
store or to your son's favorite place to
eat. Then you won't have to worry
about the gift at all.
Carry: And remember that regard-
less of the gift he receives, teach your
son that it's the thought that counts.


SayYou Care
No present is complete without a
greeting card, which is why consumers
purchase more than 7 billion of them
each year, spending more than 7.5 bil-
lion dollars. Women lead the way pur-
chasing almost 80% of all the greeting
cards. Typically, each of us receive
nearly 20 greeting cards every year,
about 7 of them related to our birthday.
With so many cards being exchanged,
it's not surprising that there are more
than 3000 greeting card publisher's in
the U.S. from small family-run busi-
nesses to large corporations.
Totally Gifted
Finding the perfect gift can be a chal-
lenge, but a gift card can often solve the
problem. It's estimated that people
spend more than 35 billion dollars
every year on gift cards. Nearly 81%
of all consumers purchase them for
birthdays and about 67% for the holi-
days. But watch out, each state has dif-
ferent regulations for gift cards. For
example, in Connecticut they have no
expiration dates and no fees. However
in Ohio, gift cards can expire within
two years, and in Arizona the issuer can
set their own expiration dates and fees.

Young Again
I wanted to make my wife's 40th
birthday special and asked her what '
she'd like most. "Well," she told me,
"I'd love to be 10 again."
That gave me the perfect idea of
putting together a day of activities
for us as if we were kids. That
Saturday we went out for her favorite
childhood breakfast of chocolate
chip pancakes. On the way home,
we played on the playground and got
dizzy riding on the merry-go-round.
We finished the day with a trip to the
ice cream parlor. As we sat there
sharing a banana split, I asked if she
had enjoyed being a kid for a day.
"I've had a great time," she
replied, "but when I said I wanted to
be 10 again, I meant my dress size."
(Thanks to Sebastian E.)

Community asked to
help animal shelter win

$1 million makeover
Suwannee County Animal Shelter could be the recipi-
ent of a $1 million shelter makeover. All that is required
is registration at www.zootoo.com/makeover. Please use
zip code of 32062 for the shelter when registering. Par- -
ticipation by all area residents is crucial, as we have
about three weeks to accumulate enough points to be in
the top 20. Fifty points are immediately accumulated just
by registering, and additional participation in various ac-
tivities on site will add more points.
There are no requirements by the public other than just
registering and your support. We can't stress enough the
importance of the community's support. A shelter
makeover could mean saving the lives of many stray ani-
mals here in Suwannee County.

What is a h ? c ..
A hurricane is a type of tropical cyclone, the generic term for a low pressure sys-
tem that generally forms in the tropics. A typical cyclone is accompanied by thunder-
storms, and in the Northern Hemisphere, a counterclockwise circulation of winds near
the earth's surface.
All Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coastal areas are subject to hurricanes or tropical
storms. Parts of the Southwest United States and the Pacific Coast experience heavy
rains and floods each year from hurricanes spawned off Mexico. The Atlantic hurri-
cane season lasts from June to November, with the peak .season from mid-August to
late October.
Hurricanes can cause catastrophic damage to coastlines and several hundred miles
inland. Winds van exceed 155 miles per hour. Hurricanes and tropical storms can also
spawn tornadoes and microbursts, create storm surges along the coast, and cause ex-
tensive damage from heavy rainfall.
Hurricanes are classified into five categories based on their wind speed, central
pressure, and damage potential (see chart). Category Three and higher hurricanes are
considered major hurricanes, though Categories One and Two are still extremely dan-
gerous. and warrant your full attention.

Hurricanes can produce widespread torrential rains. Floods 'are the deadly and de-
structive result. Slow moving storms and tropical storms moving into mountainous re-
gions tend to produce especially heavy rain. Excessive rain can trigger landslides or
mud slides, especially in mountainous regions. Flash flooding can occur due to in-
tense rainfall. Flooding on rivers and streams may persist for several days or more af-
ter the storm.
Between 1970 and 1999, more people lost their lives from freshwater inland flood-
ing associated with land falling tropical cyclones than from any other weather hazard
related to tropical cyclones.
How are Hurricanes Named?
Since 1953, Atlantic tropical storms have been named from lists originated by the
National Hurricane Center and now maintained and updated by an international com-
mittee of the World Meteorological Organization. The lists featured only women's
names until 1979. After that, men's and women's names were alternated. Six lists are
used in rotation. Thus, the 2001 lists will be used again in 2007.
The only time there is a change in the list is if a storm is so deadly or costly that the
continued use of the name would be inappropriate for reasons of sensitivity. When
this occurs, the name is stricken from the list and another name is selected to replace
it.
Sometimes names are changed. Lorenzo replaced Luis and Michelle replaced Mar-


Public Action

What do you do?
If your home is on or near the coastline where the hurricane's destructive forces will
affect it, pay close attention to what the local government and/or police force is rec-
ommending. You should also pay attention to radio and TV stations for the latest in-
formation.
If evacuating your home is recommended:
0/ Heed their warning!!
/ Plan ahead where you would go -- it may be beneficial to choose a few
places like an out of town friend's home or a designated shelter, etc.
/ Take the phone numbers of these places with you.
/ Take a road map in case the weather forces you onto unfamiliar roads.
/ Do not drive over standing water, as floods may have damaged the roads.
YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW DEEP THE WATER REALLY IS!!!


Evacuation plans
When community evacuations become necessary, local officials provide information
to the public through the media. In some circumstances, other warning methods, such
as sirens or telephone calls, also are used. Additionally, there may be circumstances un-
der which you and your family feel threatened or endangered and you need to leave
your home, school, or workplace to avoid these situations.
The amount of time you have to leave will depend on the hazard. If the event is a
weather condition, such as a hurricane that can be monitored, you might have a day or
two to get ready. However, many disasters allow no time for people to gather even the
most basic necessities, which is why planning ahead is essential.
Evacuation: More Common than You Realize
Evacuations are more common than many people realize. Hundreds of times each
year, transportation and industrial accidents release harmful substances, forcing thou-
sands of people to leave their homes. Fires and floods cause evacuations even more
frequently. Almost every year, people along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts evacuate in
the face of approaching hurricanes.
Ask local authorities about emergency evacuation routes and see if maps may are
available with evacuation routes marked.
