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.

Live Oak lawman, facing

a devastating diagnosis,

looks back at life, career


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
Det. Sgt. Ron Shaw of the Live Oak
Police Department has a doctor's ap-
pointment Friday. It's no ordinary visit.
After high school, Shaw
traveled the world three
times with the U.S. Navy.
"Woodstock was going on
and I was sitting off the coast
of North Vietnam," he said.


He will learn, as he does every three
months, whether his cancer remains in
remission.
Shaw was diagnosed with lung cancer
in September 2006. In October the up-
per lobe of his right lung was removed.
By June 2007 the situation had become
unbearable.
"I got to the point where I couldn't
walk without crutches," he said.
Then the doctors found a tumor on
the left side of his hip. The doctors said

Meet


Linda Dye,


'Community Activator'

By Ruth Ford
Linda says her main goal
in the community was to be
a positive part of it. She is
that. She not only helps
activate people but she
jumps right in, gets involved C
and does what needs doing.
Many of you saw and
maybe talked with her at
Wellborn's Blueberry 40.
Festival. She was the ^ i6
master of ceremonies for the Linda Dye
entire festival and honored
us with a few songs. (Linda is quite a talented musician,
but has not pursued that career.) She started singing in
the upscale clubs in her younger days, where she met her
husband. They have made a good team now for over 35
years. Now, though, she sings for pleasure only.
She's right in there no matter what the community is
doing. She will no doubt be one of the goblins giving out
candy at the Halloween party on Oct. 31, helping dish out
food at the Thanksgiving Dinner on Nov. 21, and helping
Santa with the presents on Dec. 18. (All events are at the
Wellborn Community Association Building on the brick
road in Wellborn.)
If you need a notary or you want her to do your
marriage ceremony she's a professional. She says she
does two or three weddings a year. Give her a call or stop
by her wonderful antique store, the Kornucopia.
The Komucopia is a select antique store with some of
the most wonderful antiques and antique vintage
collectibles anywhere to be found. She and Donald have
handpicked them from all over the United States. Folks
from as far away as Holland make it a regular stop when
they are in the United States. Out of state as well as local
customers drop in when they want something different,
special or unique. She and husband, Donald, opened the
Kornucopia in 1988, in addition to having a cattle farm
north of town. She is a native to the area and has been
here or nearby all her life. She can truly claim this area
her home as she is the fourth generation living here.
Linda doesn't just talk about things, she jumps right in.
In the last election she ran against a popular candidate and
gave it her best to make him work hard for reelection. She
also wrote for the newspaper until she resigned to jump
into politics. She was very supportive of the new prison
and did her share working to see it come to the Wellborn
area to help give the town and the area a well-needed
boost. She was on the zoning board for six years and was
chairman of it for three. She was one of the founding
members of the Wellborn Community Association and
has served recently as secretary. She also is a member of
the Wellborn Neighborhood Watch and has served as
secretary for that organization.

Chamber luncheon focuses on education


By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com

The Suwannee County Chamber of Commerce held
its quarterly luncheon Thursday afternoon at Camp
Weed with guest speaker Jerry Scarborough,
Superintendent of Suwannee County Schools.
During the ;.-.llhciiil-. which brought together
business leaders from around the community,
Scarborough laid his cards on the table by asking,
"How can the business community help our school
district become an A district?"
His answer was simple.
"One thing we find out really quickly is that if you
help a student find that the math, science and reading
they are taking in school is relevant, then they're less
likely to give up."
He proposed to leaders that the district is in need of
just 50 more coaches willing to commit to playing an
active role in the academic and career future of local
students.
The school system has developed the I Care! 9th
Grade Initiative, which pairs local mentors, volunteers
and faith-based organizations with students as a way to
promote academic excellence.
Under the initiative funded by a workforce
development grant, business leaders can help by
offering paid internships to students who qualify. The
aim is to give students real-world job experience while
still in high school.
The luncheon was sponsored by Keith Leibfried,
CEO of First Federal Bank of Florida, with as
invocation by Dennis Cason, director of the chamber.

"What we are facing is a different type of
generation. These kids can't be taught with the same
methods used in the 50s and 60s," Scarborough said.
"What we need from you as a chamber and a
community is to get creative. Our teachers need your
help. They need to know that you care as a
community."
During the presentation, a video message was
delivered by John Martz, Executive Vice President and
CEO of Suwannee Valley Electric Cooperative. Martz
said, "It's important that jobs through education

Scarborough said, was to encourage their employees

information, serve on APT or advisory committees,
volunteer, and to simply get involved.

That was the theme of this year's Pregnancy Care
Center's Walk/Run held Oct. 3.
About 300 people turned out for the event held at the
Suwannee Coliseum with 181 participating in the
Walk/Run. Fifteen churches and two businesses were also
represented.
"It was just great," said center director Donna Sandage.
"What a great community support for pro life and the
support for the Pregnancy Care Center."
Sandage said the money raised about $20,000 -almost
doubled last year's amount.

time to paint. Landscaping is established and is
less vulnerable to damage and the weather is
cool enough to work comfortably. The
temperature should be at least 50 degrees outside

You'll want to caulk before you paint. Buy some

My first



date

By Jim Holmes
It was 1957 and I was about to become a man.
At least in the eyes of my fellow 7th-grade males.
You see, I was among the select, fortunate few,
soon to have his first real date.
Sue Fisher had been my dream girl since fourth
grade. And now she had consented to allow me to
escort her to our annual fall festival dance, where
she might even be elected queen!
Sue was a cute little blonde with a bubbly per-
sonality. But even more importantly to a tiny 12-
year-old male was the fact that she was the only
girl in my 7th-grade class who didn't stand a head
taller than me. That was an important considera-
tion, as it meant I could demonstrate my box step
mastery on the dance floor without my head being
buried in her bosom. (It was only later in life that
I learned there were far worse things in this world.)
But among my 7th grade peers, there was one
important caveat to this being "a real first date." It
only qualified as such, if sue would let me kiss her
goodnight! Oh the stress.
And so the big evening finally arrived. I was
dressed in my Sunday suit, complete with a tie
knotted into a Windsor by mama. Since it was a
formal event, she provided me two hankies. One
to show, one to blow.
My folks had even laid out the cash so I could
present my "date" a corsage. I said a silent prayer
of thanks when Sue's mother quickly took it from
my trembling, sweating hands and did the honors
herself of pinning it to the bodice of her daughter's
party dress.
At the dance, all went well ... at first. We mar-
veled at the gymnasium's beautiful crepe paper
decorations, while bemoaning the fact that the
smell of sweaty gym socks still somehow lingered.
Between dances, Sue visited and giggled with girl-
friends, while we manly men stood nearby talking
manly things. But all the while, in the back of my
mind was one burning question; would Sue make
this a real date by allowing me to kiss her good-
night?
Yes, all was great, until the moment when our
Fall Festival Queen was finally revealed. The 8th-
grade class president stepped to the microphone
and announced that 7th-grader, Sue Fisher had
been elected our queen. Sue squealed in delight,
but her joy was short lived. For no sooner had the
applause died down, than the 8th-grader apolo-
gized, explaining he'd transposed the two names
and that Sue was not the winner, but the runner-up
to the real victor -- an 8th-grade girl. As you can
imagine, Sue was crushed. And all of us 7th-
graders knew in our hearts that she had been
robbed of her victory by certain, nefarious -- if
unidentified -- 8th grade cads.
To Sue's credit, she made it through the crown-
ing ceremony, but with reddened eyes. And as
soon as it was over, she raced to the gym's pay-
phone and called for her daddy to come pick her
up.
So there I was, alone. My anxiously awaited
first goodnight kiss would have to wait. Ironically,
I have no recollection of who the young lady was
who so honored me. I suspect the experience was
equally forgettable to her.
No, I don't remember that first kiss, but forever
burned into my memory is that first kiss missed.

For the love of bagels

There's quite a story behind

Branford's new eatery


Angel and Zee Nunez Photo: Stephenie Livingston

By Stephenie Li ii *. .I.-
'.i. i'l ,l m .' .".. _I ', /7 I '. ,...* ',


Zee and Angel Nunez fell in love over a fresh cup of coffee
and a warm bagel. With the grand opening of their new bagel
shop affectionately called 'ZeeAngel' this Saturday, they hope
to share with Branford the same magic they discovered togeth-
er 15 years ago.
Growing up in a Jewish community in New York City, Zee
was introduced to "the bagel world" at an early age. "I ate
bagels until they were coming out of my head," Zee said, com-
pletely serious. Through the Jewish community, she learned
great recipes and taught herself how to use fresh quality ingre-
dients over the course of 45 years of living in NYC.
Then, on a whim, Zee packed up her things and moved to
sunshine and long, sandy beaches. "I was tired of the traffic
and the depressing cold weather," she said. So Zee found her-
self in Florida, and it wasn't long before she was discussing
food with an Argentinean named Angel in a coffee shop in
Coral Springs. "Shhh, don't tell him, but he wasn't really my
type at first. I was used to the blond hair, blue eyes type," she
said smiling. "But we bonded thanks to good food and coffee."
However, the one thing the Nunezes love more than food is
their children.
"Baby, how many kids do we have?," Zee shouted over to
Angel, working at the coffee counter. "Oh, I don't know. A
lot," Angel replied.
Zee and Angel are both passionate about helping homeless

'Bits & Pieces' from south Suwannee County


A few lines from a reader


By Ana Smith
Last Sunday was "Homecoming Day" at
O'Brien Baptist Church, and as always,
there were a lot of memories of those who
have "gone home" since last year. It was
wonderful seeing some folks I haven't seen
in a while, some who live in other areas of
Suwannee County and surrounding areas,
and some who live out of our county ...
some out of state ... who came back for this
annual gathering.
The children always provide an opportu-
nity to smile as they sing their program, and
several of our young teens added to the
memories as they closed the musical portion
of our morning worship with a couple of
contemporary hymns. I hope to have a few
photos for next week, but this time I was up
in the choir myself and didn't have the op-
portunity to take any photos. God bless
Amy Fletcher, Carol Whitty and those folks
who have helped the children in past weeks
get ready for this event. And thanks to all
those folks who are part of our hospitality
committee for the excellent way they set up
these gatherings, setting the tables, arrang-
ing the variety of foods, keeping the food
lines moving and everyone taken care of,
and cleaning up. There's a lot of work in-


volved, and they do it so well! Next will be
Thanksgiving, and in December our annual
Christmas program.
As tradition holds, there was plenty of
food spread out on about five long tables,
on the kitchen serving counter, and one
room dedicated to the variety of desserts, al-
ways a popular room for young and old
alike.
This year we enjoyed a special sermon
provided by Paul Bell, nephew of Pastor
George Fryar. Several members of his fami-
ly were on hand, and Paul and his wife
Emily are a young couple involved in the
missionary field. They are currently in
preparation for their upcoming mission as-
signment to Bosnia, and listening to this
young man preach to our congregation
leaves no doubt his heart is full of love for
Our Lord. They both will certainly be a
blessing to the mission field. Their expect-
ed date to leave for Bosnia is February, and
we will continue to be in prayer for this
wonderful couple.
Congratulations to Valerie and Patrick on
their first wedding anniversary this past
Sunday. Valerie is the daughter of Pastor

Loving Pets For You


...from the Suwannee County Animal Shelter


By Ana Smith
The weather is turning cooler, fall is just around the
corner, and with the cooler temperatures it's time to think
about, and make a few preparations for, our four-legged
family members.
Right now sandspurs are a problem, not only for us
humans but also for our pets, especially if they are out-
doors all the time and most especially if they have any
kind of shaggy or long-haired coats, whether a dog or a
cat.
Cats will regularly groom themselves, despite the pres-
ence of sandspurs, but sometimes the spur is caught so
tightly in the fur that it gets pushed further down into the
skin and can be an irritation. Take a few minutes out of
your day to brush out your pet's fur. It may take several
minutes to get it done, but your pet will be grateful. And
in the case of a dog, it could mean the difference be-
tween your pet having a really matted coat with a con-
stant source of irritation, and also bringing those sand-
spurs up on your porch or in your house, in which case
you will be dealing with the problem yourself.


It's also time to start making a place for your pet to
find shelter when the really cold temperatures hit, and as
cool as our mornings are already, it's a possibility we'll
have an early winter this year. If you have a place where
your pet is usually housed, make sure there are no places
where strong winds can blow in on your pet, and get
him/her settled where you want your pet to be now, so it
will be used to that one place as its sleeping area.
My personal "outdoor" pet is large, and he is getting
up there in age. I have found that, when it starts to get
too cool for him, he will come to the back door and
whine. Although he prefers to be outside, he knows
when it is time to get out of the weather. When that time
comes, we have an old, really thick blanket that is his
alone, and he comes in and sleeps near the dryer and the
return grate, where it is always warm and comfortable
for him. And yes, he does get a good brushing before he
is allowed to stay indoors, even if it is just in the laundry
room.
If you have any concerns about what to do for your
outdoor pets when the weather turns cold, call your vet

Formerly Magnolia Baptist Church, Landmark Baptist
Church in Branford, (Highway 129 South, 1 mile south

children. "We've taken
them in over the years. If
they didn't have a crimi-
nal record and needed a
place to stay, they had a
home with us," said Zee.
Zee and Angel have 11
children ranging in age
from 21-47. When asked
how many are their bio-
logical children they sim-
ply say, "Just a couple."
Currently, they are wait-
ing to adopt a son. "We
want to make it a dozen,"
Zee said.
Zee and Angel moved
to Branford five years ago


to live more quietly. They
found the perfect house
and were happy, but still
had not fulfilled their mu-
tual dream of opening a
bagel and coffee shop.
Then one day, they took a
wrong turn and discov-
ered a little building they
had not noticed before
next to Badcock's Furni-
ture. "We were praying
for a bagel and coffee
shop. I thought this build-
ing was perfect and turns
out it was for lease," said
Zee. "We made the wrong
turn at the right time."
Now customers can

Landmark Baptist Church, I have been able to go back
through time and look at some of the glorious history of
this church and have seen the effect that it has made on
this city.
Most of the early members of the church are now
grandparents and some still attend church here. Some
have gone on to be with the Lord. One thing that has not
changed is that we are still an old-fashioned Independent
Conservative Fundamental King James preaching
church.
Sunday School starts at 10 a.m. and our morning ser-
vice will begin at 11 a.m. with a baptismal service to fol-
low the morning service. We will then go over to the fel-
lowship hall and have dinner on the grounds, returning to
the church for an afternoon service.
We would ask you to please come and celebrate with
us. If you have any questions please call Pastor Steve
Redman at 1-386-792-4370. Come worship with us.


bagel "any way you want
it" as well as specialty
coffee and teas. "We have
bagel supreme, pizza
bagels, chili bagels, bagel
subs ...," Zee continued to
list at least a dozen differ-
ent bagel concoctions.
"Sweet tooth bagel, cream
cheese and cherry bagel.
We also have fresh
donuts, which nobody
else in town has." ZeeAn-
gel also features a variety


of lunch and dinner items.
"You can literally eat
breakfast, lunch and din-
ner here," said Zee.
If anyone has doubt
about Zee's bagels, all
they have to do is ask An-
gel. "He said he married
me because I was differ-
ent and I cook good. Isn't
that right, babe?," Zee
asked. "That's right," said
Angel.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: I have severe arthritis in both hands.
Any suggestions for keeping my teeth
clean?
A: Many older Americans suffer from
diminishing dexterity that makes
performing everyday tasks difficult. And
many more may have a temporary
impediment, like a cast or tennis elbow,
that can make everyday actions like
brushing and flossing your teeth a
challenge. You don't want your oral health
to suffer because of it. Here are some
steps you can take at home to make your
oral health tasks more manageable:
* Make your toothbrush handle easier to
grip by expanding its size with a sponge,
inserting the handle into a slit-open rubber
ball or into a bicycle handle grip. Or wrap
an elastic bandage or adhesive tape
around the handle.
* Lengthen the toothbrush handle by tying
a piece of wood or plastic, like a ruler, a
Popsicle stick or a tongue depressor to it.
* An electric toothbrush, which will have a
thicker grip and does much of the brushing
work for you, might be the answer.
* Try buying one of the many over-the-
counter devices that make flossing easier.
Talk with your dentist about ways to get
around a permanent or temporary
disability and care for your teeth and
mouth.

What is RSV?
Respiratory synctial virus (RSV) is a virus that infects the
respiratory tract. Almost all children are infected with this virus by 2
or 3 years of age. Adults are also susceptible to infection with RSV.
The virus typically affects the lower part of the lungs of infants and
young children, and the upper respiratory tract of older children and
adults. The elderly and persons with a compromised immune system
also may experience infection of the lower respiratory tract. The

the cancer had spread and
metastasized.
In January Shaw had a
piece of rib removed with a
tumor growing on it that
was pressing against his
lung.
"I don't wish that stuff on
my own worst enemy," said
Shaw. "And I don't have
any enemies, I don't hold
grudges. And my wife hates
me for it," he said with a
smile.
He has gone through
chemotherapy twice and ra-
diation once, and beaten the
cancer back. For now.
Shaw hopes he gets good
news Friday. In the end,
though, it may not make
much difference.
This is the third time his
cancer has gone into remis-
sion. His doctor says the dis-
ease will return in time, and
his case has been deemed
terminal.
"It'll come back and bite
me one day," Shaw said.
In the wake of the news,
Shaw, 60, says he's begun to
see things differently.
"I just kind of take it three
months at a time," said
Shaw. "You don't live for
quantity anymore, you just
live for quality."
Shaw sat down in the de-
partment's situation room
with Democrat reporter Jeff
Waters recently to talk about
where he's been and what
he's seen along the way.

Getting started

Shaw finished high
school, then set out to see
the world. He went on three
tours of duty with the U.S.
Navy.
"Yeah, Woodstock was
going on and I was sitting
off the coast of North Viet-
nam," he said.
Shaw was stationed on
the U.S.S. Long Beach, a
nuclear-powered cruiser,
"the only ship of its class in
the world," he said.
About four years later, in
the early 70s, Shaw began
his career in law enforce-
ment with the road patrol of
the Sullivan County Sher-
iffs Office in upstate New
York, 90 miles from New
York City.
"So we got all the over-
flow from the city," said
Shaw. "That was the moun-
tain resort area, the Catskill
Mountains and it was com-
parable to Suwannee Coun-
ty because it was all rural."
The road patrol was new,
Shaw said, only about two
years old when he started.


American Kenpo

"We lacked a lot of equip-
ment and other resources,"
Shaw said.

The road to
Live Oak
By 1975, Shaw found
himself in Miami where he
worked for what's now
called the Miami-Dade Po-
lice Department.
"It was fun down there,"
said Shaw. "It was party
town."
But it was non-stop for the
department. When officers
reported for duty they might
be facing 30 to 40 calls.
"Back then you were busy
enough that you had very lit-
tle time to do any proactive
police work, you just went
from call to call," Shaw said.
He said major drug opera-
tions were based in Miami
and most of the calls dealt
with that.
"The Colombians were
trying to take over the drug
trade back then so we went
to a lot of calls. There were a
lot of motels there where
you had execution style
slaying almost every
night," Shaw said. "So we
would go in there, secure the
crime scene and let homi-
cide take over."
After a couple of stints in
departments around the
state, Shaw reached a point
in his life where he wanted
more.
"I got 21 years in law en-
forcement, there's got to be
something else," Shaw told
himself.
He and the family moved
to North Carolina where he
started out as a meter reader
and worked his way up to
supervisor.
Shaw remembers driving
up to summer homes and
noticing they'd been broken
into. He knew then that all
he could do was call the po-
lice. Before, he was the po-
lice.
"Once you start working
law enforcement, it kind of
gets in your blood," he said.
After another stint in law
enforcement, Shaw returned
to the private sector. It was-
n't challenging enough, he
said.
"You always have to think
in law enforcement," said
Shaw. "Your mind's always
working."
In 2003, Shaw applied for
the chiefs position with the
Chiefland Police Depart-
ment. He consulted with his
good friend Nolan McLeod,
then chief of LOPD, whom
he knew from other jobs.
"He said they got their
problems," said Shaw. "He

said you need to keep your
eyes glued to the newspa-
pers. And it was at that time
they had to let the whole po-
lice department go because
they did not have an ordi-
nance in the city charter that
authorized them to enforce
Florida law. They were mak-
ing illegal arrests, so I got a
hold of the city manager and
said, 'I think I want to with-
draw my application."
That was when Shaw de-
cided to make the move to
Live Oak.

On the job
at LOPD
Shaw began his career at
LOPD under McLeod as a
uniformed officer. He be-
came a detective in April
2004. One year later he was
promoted to detective
sergeant.
He spent a couple of years
rooting out pedophiles who
prey on children in Internet
chat rooms. Shaw said that
job was "like shooting fish in
a barrel."
Shaw said they worked a
case once where a 15-year-
old Live Oak boy was trad-
ing child pornography with
an undercover U.S. Postal
Service investigator out of
Pennsylvania.
Shaw said a plan was
hatched. The kid would meet
the supposed "Pennsylvania
man" at a local motel.
"So we set everything up
in one of the local motels
and sure enough, here comes
this kid," said Shaw. "He
was kind of hesitant at first,
looking around. The
(LOPD) officer that was
posing as the guy from
Pennsylvania opened the
door, kind of stretched like
he had just gotten in from a
long drive and waves him in.
They talk for a while and an
investigator was hiding in
the bathroom. They went to
a separate room where the
kid thought the photographs
were going to be taken. He
walked in and we just looked
at the kid and said yeah
you're in deep (expletive)
now," Shaw said laughing.
Shaw, who with his wife
Patricia has four children
and five grandchildren,
raised his eyebrows, sat back
in his office chair and put his
arms on his head as he talked
about another case, a pe-
dophile from Arizona he
caught on the Internet.
"The authorities there
were trying to catch him for
a while," said Shaw. "The
guy supposedly said he had a
good way of sniffing out
cops. They were shocked
when I called them."
"I guess his long range
sniffer didn't work," Shaw
said amusingly.

Roads not taken

Early on, Shaw had no
inkling he would end up in
law enforcement.


prey on children
in Internet chat
rooms. He said
that job was "like
shooting fish in a
barrel."

But it did seem a fitting
path to pursue. His father
worked as a state corrections
officer for 30 years. Shaw's
younger brother worked in
corrections as well. His
grandfather was the first po-
liceman in the town of Falls-
burg, N.Y And his father's
brother was a policeman,
killed in the line of duty in
1959 while responding to a
burglary.
Shaw never wanted to go
into corrections like his dad
wanted. He said they may
make a lot of money, but
there's a reason.
"One day I told my father,
'Pop, you had a good job all
these years, you were a
bounty guard out riding a
horse for 21 years, all you
did was ride from work gang
to work gang and take head
counts and stuff," Shaw
said.
"'But the way a prison
works today you go through
the door and they lock it be-
hind you and guess what,
you're serving time just like
the rest of them."'
Besides, Shaw says he's
always loved his chosen pro-
fession.
"What makes it passionate
for me is I know there's peo-
ple out there who have no re-
gard for other people or their
property and those kinds of
people are the ones that real-
ly hurt society today," he
said. "They take what does-
n't belong to them, they hurt
people for no reason. And if
you think about what society
is right now what would it be
like if there was no law en-
forcement. You'd have con-
fusion out there."

for the Sullivan County
Sheriffs Office in upstate
New York.
Information that Shaw
obtained resulted in a
search warrant on a man
who was eventually
charged with growing
marijuana and selling it
to high school students.
Shaw was off duty, sit-
ting in a restaurant when
one of the pay phones
rang inside the eatery.
"The waitress an-
swered the phone and
she comes over and says,
'I don't know who it is,
but they're calling for
you on the pay phone.'"
Shaw said the sus-
pect's grandfather sup-
posedly from "one of the
'families' out of Jersey
City" was on the line.
He told Shaw "this case
didn't need to go to trial."
"He sounded just like
one of the Sopranos. He
was very nice, not ag-
gressive, he just kept
dropping hints," Shaw
said.
Shaw told him to take
his concerns to the dis-
trict attorney.
"He just said, 'Let me
bring something to light
here. Stop and think how
I know you are where
you are right now. I
know you're off duty.
How do you think I
know where you are?' I
started looking out the
windows," said Shaw.
"Obviously he was fol-
lowing me."
Shaw said he was tak-
en off road patrol for a
few months as a precau-
tion.


His first night back on
patrol, he was sent to in-
vestigate a shooting.
"The way it came in
was kind of strange,"
said Shaw.
He said the desk
sergeant told him to
scramble his radio trans-
missions so they could
communicate in privacy.
He was told that a
woman was picked up on
Highway 17, now an in-
terstate highway, by a
truck driver and taken to
a hospital.
"She had been shot in
the neck and she's claim-
ing that her and her
boyfriend were picked
up in New Jersey ... she
said they were both shot
and her boyfriend's prob-
ably dead and that he's
off on the side of the
road somewhere, so they
sent me down. And I
found a body with a third
eye," Shaw said pointing
to a spot between his
eyes.
"And I sat there and I
said 'Wait a minute, this
is my first night on the
road again, this ain't
working."
Shaw said he drove up
the road to the county's
public works depart-
ment.
"I drove up there
where it was nicely lit
and I called on the radio
and said 'You need to
send me everybody in
the world, because if I
get whacked, I want a
witness," said Shaw.
Shaw said folks from
one of the aforemen-
tioned 'families' was lat-
er found to be responsi-
ble for the shooting.

FSU College of Medicine honors


Dr. Nasseer Masoodi of ACV


By Darleen Hinrichs
ACV Staff
Advent Christian Village physician Nasseer Masoodi,
MD is one of two physicians honored by FSU College of
Medicine at a ceremony on Sept. 3 at Tallahassee's
...--
m'u .u ....
-- j(,- -


Dr. Nasseer Masoodi Photo: Darleen Hinrichs


Capital City Country Club. Masoodi was named the
Outstanding Clinical Faculty Educator. Mel Hartsfield,
dean of the Tallahassee Regional campus, called Masoodi
an "unsung hero" who provides students with an
opportunity to see patients in a rural c'llill-.. which is part
of the school's mission. Also honored was Thomasville
Pediatrician Dr. Timothy Jones, who received the
"Guardian of the Mission" award.
FSU medical students spend a rotation at ACV working
alongside Masoodi, learning about medical practice in a
rural community and gaining experience in the field of
geriatrics. They divide their time between the clinic at
Copeland Medical Center and Good Samaritan Center,
ACV's skilled nursing facility.
Masoodi explains, "During their Geriatric rotation, the
students are required to see a certain number of patients
with certain disabilities. They learn how to manage the
care of the aging, but it is not just disease management.
They explore new dimensions; it is interactive-dealing
with the person as a whole, not just their particular
disease or disability. They learn about the patient's
activities and interactions-all different dynamics. By the
time they leave ACV, the students have a much more
complete picture of the various aspects of aging."
Masoodi has been ACV's Medical Director since 2004.
He is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Geriatrics,
as well as Hospice and Palliative Care. In 2008, he was
recognized as a Fellow in the American College of
Physicians. Fellowship is an honor achieved by those
recognized by their peers for personal integrity, superior
competence in internal medicine, professional
accomplishment and demonstrated scholarship.

Sat.; Nov. 21, 4 pm: Tour & History of Blue Lodge,
Begin at Lodge, US 90, Live Oak

Keeping with the theme of "Stories of the
Suwannee," this season's events will offer
opportunities for the general public to hear the stories
of the people, industries, and events of Suwannee
County that make its history the treasure that it is. The
ever-popular "Program Events" will return to the fall
schedule. These lectures feature local historians and
community members sharing information about
specific subjects. The selection of subjects has been
through the comments and questions of those that visit
the museum.
During the month of October, Richard Wright of
Colonial Photography will be coordinating a series of
Thursday night lectures and workshops addressing the
proper preservation of antiques. Topics may cover
areas of interest having to do with Photography,
Furniture, Facilities, Tableware, and Dolls & Toys.
Please contact the museum to confirm the schedule
and subject matter to be presented.
The month of November brings us two additional
lecture workshops. The first will take place on
Thursday, November 5 at 6:30pm. The subject to be
presented will be "Tales of Old Columbus". This will
be offered by Beth Schoenfelder from the Suwannee
River State Park, which encompasses the land of this
historic community on the Suwannee River.
Secondly, museum staff and leadership will be
hosting a workshop having to do with the Stories of
Mr. Sears & Mr. Dowling. Through this workshop
guests will hear stories having to do with these two
notable personalities and will also be encouraged to
become involved in preparing a museum exhibit
having to do with this fascinating part of Suwannee
County history. This workshop will take place on
Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 6:30 pm.
All program events take place at the Suwannee
County Historical Museum, located at 208 N. Ohio
Avenue in Live Oak in the historic Atlantic Coastline
freight station. Their operating hours are Tuesday -
Saturday from 9 am 3 pm, closing from 12 1 pm for
lunch. Admission is free, donations are accepted. The
museum's phone number is (386) 362-1776. The
museum's website is www.suwanneemuseum.org;
Randy Torrance is the Executive Director/Curator.

Live Oak man arrested for attempted mower theft


By Carnell Hawthorne Jr
Javier Cruz Vasquez, 29, of Live
Oak was arrested Friday and
charged with theft and resisting with
violence after a witness reportedly
identified him as the man attempting
to steal a push lawnmower from a
home in the area near Railroad Av-


enue.
Police were dispatched to the lo-
cation mentioned around 7 a.m. and
going from a description, located
and detained Vasquez. The officers
transported Vasquez to the victim's
house where he was identified as
the man who had attempted the


mower theft, a police report shows.
At that point, Javier allegedly threw
a cell phone at an officer on duty,
striking the officer in the leg.
Vasquez had to be physically re-
strained before being taken to jail.
Officers later discovered an active
warrant for Vasquez's arrest.


ARMED ROBBERY
Search is on for 2 suspects

listening to music when the
two males approached the
back door of his car armed
with handguns. The pair
ordered the victim to drive
them to an undisclosed lo-
cation where they demand-
ed his wallet and took the
cash. One of the robbers
reportedly struck Hernan-
dez in the back of the head
with an unknown object.
The two then fled on foot
in the direction of McGee
Street.
The K-9 unit from
Hamilton Correctional In-


stitution searched the area
but the suspects remain at
large.
As in recent home inva-
sion robberies in Live Oak,
the suspects are African
American, the victim His-
panic. A number of those
crimes occurred at Live
Oak Pines.
"Detectives are working
on several different leads at
this time," Bates said in the
press release.
Anyone with informa-
tion on this crime is asked
to call the LOPD at 386-
362-7463, or Crime Stop-
pers at 386-208-TIPS.

She said coverage would
remain for all policyhold-

"The non-renewal effec-
tive date is July 2010,"
said Smeltzer.

January. She said it could
take about two years to


complete all the non-re-

This is the second insur-
ance company to drop

the state this year. State

January to discontinue of-

1,200 such policies are in

ty.


Man arrested for

beer bottle strike


By Carnell Hawthorne Jr
Juan Aguinaga, 20, of
Live Oak, was arrested
Sunday and charged with
aggravated battery after he
struck someone in the head
with a beer bottle, accord-
ing to a sheriffs report.
The incident took place
Saturday just before mid-
night at Suwannee Farms
migrant camp on CR 349.
Aguinaga and the un-


named victim got into an
altercation, which involved
Aguinaga's use of the bottle
as a weapon, authorities
said. The victim sustained
head injuries and emer-
gency responders were
called. The victim was
treated at the scene, but re-
fused to be transported.
Aguinaga was booked
into the Suwannee County
Jail.


Man discovered in dairy truck charged with burglary


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com
A Live Oak man was arrested Oct.
5 and charged with burglary, grand
theft and criminal mischief of a fire
extinguisher. Corey James Butts, 20,
was discovered inside a Bassett's
Dairy work truck at the dairy's ware-
house by deputy Arthur Robinson,
sheriffs reports show.
Robinson said he became suspi-
cious after discovering a blue Ford
car outside the warehouse with keys
in the ignition, as well as a pack of


cigarettes on the hood, and after
finding footprints near trucks and
heavy equipment at a nearby con-
struction site.
Robinson later discovered stolen
tools worth about $300 by a fence in
front of the warehouse, according to
reports. Butts told Robinson that he
and a friend had stopped at the loca-
tion to talk to his father, an employ-
ee at Bassett's Dairy, when he ar-
rived at work. Butts said he was only
at the warehouse to get something to
drink and told Robinson his juvenile
friend must have stolen the tools, re-


ports show. Butts reportedly admit-
ted he and his friend had taken fire
extinguishers from a John Deere
front-end loader and sprayed each
other with them.
Robinson took Butts into custody
and transported him to the Suwannee
County Jail.

The Bulldogs lost their homecoming
game to district foe Raines 49-14 Friday.
The 'Dogs started the game on a 40-
yard Xavier Perry kickoff return. Perry
added 10-yards on a Jimmy Taylor
handoff before the Vikings took over on
a Suwanee fumble.
Jared Broxy, Jackson Brown and
Markus Lane made a few good defen-


sive stops. However, that didn't stop the
Vikings who ran it in from the one yard
line.
Suwannee's Greg Swinson added 28-
yards on five drives before Andre Zan-
ders tied the game with a 38-yard touch-
down run followed by an Austin O'-
Connor point after.
O'Connor returned the ball on a 60-
yard kickoff. Quinton Hines stopped a

The Bucs had 179 rushing yards and
112 passing yards. They had two
turnovers on the first two possessions

Perry had five for minus one yard.
David Bass also caught two passes.
His was for 85 yards and one touch-
down. One of Bass's touchdown was
for 65-yards.
"The good thing is we won and we
played a lot of kids," said Coach Bill
Wiles. "I think we took 33 kids and
played all of them. We went out there
and really didn't play with any emotion
at the beginning, but we ended up play-


ing a pretty good game."
The Bucs are 5-1. The Dragons are
0-6. Branford is off Friday. They will
return Oct. 23 for homecoming against
Bronson.

and the Tisch family. The
fact that you sat through
15 consecutive seasons
(1964-1979) without a
playoff appearance, in
heat and snow doesn't
matter. The fact that you
bought your tickets when
they played at the Polo
Grounds, Yankee Stadi-
um, Shea Stadium, The
Yale Bowl and the Mead-
owlands doesn't matter
either. When Michael
Crabtree holds out for
more money or Brandon
Marshall dogs it for a
bigger check, bless them.
They are just working on
their first million, they
weren't born that way.
The have-not-a-million
should be given prefer-
ence to the want-more-
millions.
One last example. A
service group that bought
tickets for over 50 years
got their PSL bill. It was
over $100,000. There will
be no Giant games for a
lot of school age football
players, needy children
and terminally ill people
this organization helped
with football tickets. You
don't spend a few hun-
dred grand for the rights
to help people.
The sad part is, we will
continue to watch foot-
ball. We will continue to
root for our teams. But it
will never be same. My
New Jersey friends would
say nothing personal, just
business.
This will be coming to
a college stadium soon.
Bull Gators and Golden
Chiefs will find their loy-
alty tested by an even
bigger check.
Like selling groceries
or cars, sports is big busi-
ness, mega-business. The
NFL is worth in excess of
$32 billion dollars with a
GNP that probably ranks
in the top 10 among non-
oil producing nations.
And you need a thousand
dollars from me to buy a
seat.
When you watch the
Yankees play in the play-
offs and perhaps the
World Series, keep an
eye on the empty seats
behind home plate. They
cost $1,500 for a regular
game, what could they
cost for the playoffs?
Don't they realize people
with that kind of money
are already in a skybox.

26-yard pass followed by a 10-yard touch-
down run. The Vikings led 14-7 and added a
score following yet another Suwannee fumble.
Suwannee's Josh Martin returned the kick-
off 38 yards. Swinson added four yards. The
'Dogs were at 2nd & 6. An offside penalty by
Raines made it 2nd & 1. Another penalty by
Raines will give the 'Dogs a first down. Taylor
completed one of two passes to Zanders for
four yards before being sacked and ending the
first quarter of play.
In the half of play the 'Dogs trailed 21-7.
An interception by Suwannee's Josh Martin
gave the 'Dogs the ball early in the second


quarter.
The Vikings added another score with about
five minutes to go in the half.
Martin returned a Viking kickoff for 35-
yards. The Xman, Perry, added five yards,
because a penalty by the 'Dogs set them back.
Taylor completed a pass to Perry for 29-yards
in one of the biggest offensive plays of the
game. Another pass to Perry will add seven
yards. Swinson added 13 yards on the next
drive. The 'Dogs failed to get the end zone and
a 32-yard field goal attempt failed.
The third quarter wasn't any better for the
'Dogs. The first play of the second half was an
85-yard Raines touchdown.
The 'Dogs finally scored on a one yard
touchdown by J.R. Bass. Suwannee trailed 35-
14. Raines added another score early in the


fourth to make it 42-14.
Jason Bullock stepped in as quarterback for
the 'Dogs. Hines picked up four yards after a
handoff from Bullock. The 'Dogs fumbled on
the snap on the next play, the fourth fumble of
the night for Suwannee. The Vikings' final
score came on a 10-yard run, making it 49-14.
The 'Dogs fall to 3-3, 1-1 in District 2-2A.
Raines improves to 2-3 (1-1). Suwannee is off
Friday.

tion 120.60(3), FS., however, any person
who asked the Permitting Authority for no-
tice of agency action may file a petition
within 14 days of receipt of that notice, re-
gardless of the date of publication. A pe-
titioner shall mail a copy of the petition to
the applicant at the address indicated
above, at the time of filing. The failure of
any person to file a petition within the ap-
propriate time period shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to request an
administrative determination (hearing) un-
der Sections 120.569 and 120.57, FS., or
to intervene in this proceeding and partic-
ipate as a party to it. Any subsequent in-
tervention (in a proceeding initiated by an-
other party) will be only at the approval of
the presiding officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, FA.C.

A petition that disputes the material facts
on which the Permitting Authority's action
is based must contain the following infor-
mation: (a) The name and address of
each agency affected and each agency's
file or identification number, if known; (b)
The name, address, and telephone num-
ber of the petitioner; the name, address
and telephone number of the petitioner's
representative, if any, which shall be the
address for service purposes during the
course of the proceeding; and an expla-
nation of how the petitioner's substantial
interests will be affected by the agency
determination; (c) A statement of when
and how each petitioner received notice of
the agency action or proposed decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of
material fact; (e) A concise statement of
the ultimate facts alleged, including the
specific facts the petitioner contends war-
rant reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action; (f) A statement
of the specific rules or statutes the peti-
tioner contends require reversal or modifi-
cation of the agency's proposed action in-
cluding an explanation of how the alleged
facts relate to the specific rules or
statutes; and, (g) A statement of the relief
sought by the petitioner, stating precisely
the action the petitioner wishes the
agency to take with respect to the
agency's proposed action. A petition that
does not dispute the material facts upon
which the Permitting Authority's action is
based shall state that no such facts are in
dispute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above, as
required by Rule 28-106.301, FA.C.

Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Permitting Authority's final
action may be different from the position
taken by it in this Public Notice of Intent to
Issue Air Permit. Persons whose sub-
stantial interests will be affected by any
such final decision of the Permitting Au-
thority on the application have the right to
petition to become a party to the proceed-
ing, in accordance with the requirements
set forth above.

Mediation: Mediation is not available in
this proceeding.

Wildlife Field Day and Archery Tournament hits the target


By Cliff S,, lin,,:'
Resource Consultant
Suwannee County Conservation District


About 50 participants attended the Wildlife Field Day
and Archery Tournament at the University of Florida Re-
search and Education Center in Live Oak recently. The
field day was hosted by Suwannee County Conservation
District (SCCD), University of Florida, Natural Re-
sources Conservation District (NRCS) and Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).
The day started with Andy Jackson from SCCD wel-
coming attendees and offering an overview of the impor-
tance of supporting such educational event. The atten-
dees were then escorted towards the 22 summer food
plots planted at NFREC-Live Oak for demonstration
purposes. There, Cliff Starling from SCCD, discussed
how the plots were prepared, planted and fertilized
among other practices that were applied to the plots.
Starling emphasized that all the practices could be mim-
icked by anyone wanting to plant wildlife enhancement
food plots. Dr. Anne Blount from University of Florida
then discussed plant varieties and materials that were
used for planting, and nutrient levels contained by each
plant type. Dr. Blount covered 11 different plants and or
mixes used in the research and demonstration plots, in-
cluding brown top millet, iron clay peas, Biloxi soybean,
Pennington Rackmaster, Biologic Biomass Legume Mix,
aeshyenomone, alyce clover, sunflowers, Chufas, and
WGF sorghum. Elena Toro from Suwannee County Ex-
tension Service provided an overview of the importance
of taking soil samples for wildlife food plots. She
stressed that soils in food plots typically have low pH
and should be corrected to ensure that planting is suc-
cessful.
Jed Dillard of Jefferson County Extension Service UF-
IFAS provided a natural approach to wildlife plant man-
agement and the annual cycle of wildlife with regard to
development. Jed demonstrated which naturally occur-
ring plants can be used for wildlife feed and can be
made more valuable with minimal management. He
summed it up best saying that, "he was teaching wildlife
management for the broke and lazy."
Ricky Lackey from FWC gave insights on deer herd
and turkey management. Lackey showed participants
how using game cameras can be used to determine deer
populations as well as predator counts. This technique
can help achieve balance for wildlife harvesting, which
promotes healthy populations. Lackey also provided in-
formation about the importance of keeping observation
forms and harvest records. According to Lackey, not
maintaining records can be detrimental to a management
program.
Chris Menhennett with NRCS shared ideas from the


Conservation Programs that NRCS are now implement-
ing throughout Suwannee County. One of particular in-
terest to attendees was the Wildlife Habitat Incentive
Program (WHIP). This program is designed to protect,
restore, develop and/or enhance wildlife habitat in sensi-
tive areas, and to promote success of at-risk species.
Following the educational portion of the program, par-
ticipants got a chance to compete in an Archery Tourna-
ment. Approximately twenty people from the local area
tested their archery skills on a realistic 3-D hunting
course that SCCD and 4-H shooting sports designed as a
fundraiser for the Shooting Sports Program. Although
the contest was plagued by heavy rains, the contestants
enjoyed the afternoon activities.
Thanks to our many generous sponsors SCCD was
able to offer prizes to the top three contestants, as well as
top youth and female. Chan Perry came in 1st followed
by Greg Lyons who took 2nd, while Maury Byrd scored
a respectable 3rd. Top youth was Jantz Jenkins and top
female went to Lynn Dees.


The Suwannee County Conservation District wants to
thank all of our gracious sponsors for their contributions
to the Wildlife Field Day and Archery Tournament.
Without the help of these sponsors, it event would not
have been the success that it was.

The sponsors were:
Live Oak and Madison Farmers Cooperative
Mayo Fertilizer
R & R Tractor Part and Hunting Supplies
Daddy's Gun Shop (Mayo)
Drummond Bank (Mayo)
Huffman and Gilmore Feed and Seed (Live Oak)
Live Oak Tractor
Gordon Ford Tractor (Live Oak)

Flyball racing classes
Too Hot to Handle Flyball Racing Team will be hold-
ing flyball classes in O'Brien and Live Oak. The classes

Flyball is a relay race in which four dogs race against an-

they leap upon to release a tennis ball, they catch the ball
and bring it back to their handler so that the next dog on
their team may then run the course. There are two
leagues that teams can compete in to win titles and
awards.

The Importance of Senior Fitness
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), exercise and physical
activity are some of the best things older adults can do to stay healthy. Even
moderate exercise can improve the health of those who are frail or who have age-
related diseases.
Some seniors are concerned that physical activity or exercise may be too
strenuous or may do them more harm than good. In fact, it's an inactive lifestyle
that proves to do more harm than exercise does.
Without physical activity, older people tend to grow weaker in four areas
important for staying healthy and independent: strength, balance, flexibility, and
endurance. The NIH maintains that:
Increasing strength and endurance make it easier to climb stairs and carry
groceries.
Improving balance helps prevent falls.
Being more flexible may speed recovery from injuries.
Exercising regularly can also have a positive impact on the immune system,
blood pressure, cardiovascular system and it can decrease the risk of heart
disease and help with depression or anxiety.
The American Senior Fitness Association has some recommendations for those
wanting to start a fitness program.
Get medical clearance to exercise.
Don't exercise if you are injured, sick, or running a temperature.
Always warm up and always cool down.
Drink plenty of water before, during and after exercise.
Avoid heavy meals for about two hours before energetic exercise.
If fatigue and/or discomfort last longer than one or two hours after exercising,
cut back the next day but don't stop completely. Comfort ranges can change daily,
so don't get discouraged if you can't do the same amount of exercise as you did
the day before.
Concentrate on exercises that improve and maintain your range of motion,
lubricate the joints and keep muscles flexible. Everyday activities will be easier to
carry out and you'll have less pain, too.
Stop exercise and consult your physician immediately if you experience any of
the following:
chest pain or tightness in the chest, neck or throat
considerable difficulty breathing
abnormal heart rhythm; nausea' dizziness, light headedness, or visual
interruption
excessive cold sweat
extreme or lasting weakness or fatigue
For a good, overall exercise program, consider tai chi. Tai chi is a self-paced
system of gentle physical exercise. It involves standing and performing a series of
movements in a slow, graceful way. Each movement smoothly flows into the next.
Studies suggest that tai chi may improve balance and knee joint stability, both of
which help balance.
Staying active does the body and the mind a world of good. Find exercise and
activities that you enjoy and you'll be able to stick with it and improve your quality
of life.

Progressive Madness



to perform at Free Fridays concert series


GAINESVILLE Progressive
Madness, a seven-member band from the
Gainesville area, will play a concert of
all original music at the Downtown
Community Plaza "Free Fridays" series
on Friday, Oct. 16. According to band
member Pateh Parsons, the group plays a
variety of music from rock 'n' roll to pop
to rhythm and blues. He says that some
have referred to their music as
"Suwannee Rock Music."
Born in Germany, Parsons immigrated
with his family to Canada and grew up in
Montreal. It was there that he got his first
guitar at age 15 and shortly after, won a
radio talent show with his first song
"Don't Get Married." After serving in the
Canadian army, he toured Canada for a
while playing rock 'n' roll before
eventually settling on the Suwannee
River in Florida in 1974. He has been a
fixture in the Gainesville music scene
ever since.


His newest band, Progressive
Madness, was formed in 2006. Lynda
Stauffer joined on keyboards, and Native
Cherokee Indian Randy Snow added
bass and the sounds of his handcrafted
Native American style flutes and drums.
A few months later, Alycin Hayes
brought in special effects percussion and
back-up vocals, and Ryan Allen
contributed with drums, guitar,
harmonica and background vocals. The
final piece of the puzzle was when local
guitar prot6g6 Conor Galligan joined the
band as their lead guitarist. In August
2009, the band announced the addition of
its newest member, Chris Kenner, who
plays the drums and sings background
vocals. Over the past two years, the band
has played at many popular local music
clubs, as well as various festivals and
charity events.
The Downtown Plaza "Free Fridays"
concerts run from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.


every Friday night this year from May 1
through Oct. 30. The Bo Diddley
Community Plaza is located on the
corner of Southeast First Street and East
University Avenue. The complete
schedule for the Downtown Plaza "Free
Friday" and links to the bands' Web
sites can be found at
www.gvlculturalaffairs.org or at

The Cultural Affairs Division is the
designated local arts agency for
Gainesville and Alachua County. Its
mission is to promote cultural activity
and encourage community based cultural
resources.

"Crazy," "Night Life,"
"Funny How Time Slips
Away" and on and on with
his string of hit songs and

roaring experience for Big
Kenny and his multitude of
fans.
Country music sensation
James Otto is expected to
sing his new single "Since
You Brought It Up," from
his forthcoming new al-

performance at the SOSMP.
In 2008 he performed his
number one single, "I Just
Got Started Loving You," at
the Suwannee River Jam, in
a rousing performance.
Josh Thompson, a Co-
lumbia artist, was recently
invited to the Grande Ole
Opry for his very first per-
formance Sept. 19. Josh's
first single, "Beer on the
Table," is now out with a
CMT video and rave re-
views.
David Cooler, the South
Carolina boy known for his
rural beginnings and songs
which remind country boys
and girls of their begin-

winning Mercy Mountain
Band.

'Saturday Morning

Physics'


Combining
learning and
laughter at FSU
Is science really interest-
ing enough to justify devot-
ing a portion of one's week-
end to it? If you have your
doubts, then just ask the
hundreds of area high
school students who attend-
ed -- and had a great time at
-- The Florida State Univer-
sity's "Saturday Morning
Physics" programs last fall.
Once again this year,
Florida State's Department
of Physics will host a num-
ber of Saturday-morning
discussions and demonstra-
tions throughout the fall.
These are designed to show
young people that, in addi-
tion to playing an important
role in everyday life,
physics can be downright
fun. There is no charge for
attending any or all of the
programs, which run until
Nov. 21, and registration is
not required.
"We try to show young
people that the study of
physics is important, it's


fun, and it can be of great
benefit to them in their fu-
ture endeavors," said Volk-
er Crede, an assistant pro-
fessor of physics at Florida
State who directs Saturday
Morning Physics. "With
Saturday Morning Physics,
we show that it's possible to
expand your horizons and
enjoy yourself at the same
time."
There are other benefits
as well: Many area high
school juniors and seniors
are able to receive extra
credit in their science class-
es. And then there are the
juice and doughnut breaks,
provided free by the
physics department.
While Saturday Morning
Physics is geared for high
school students, anyone
from the public is welcome,
Crede said.
"Parents and teachers in
particular are encouraged
to attend," he said.
"Younger kids will enjoy
the demonstrations as well.

physics is not a require-
ment!"
Each Saturday Morning
Physics program begins at
9:30 a.m. and usually lasts
until 11 to 11:15 a.m., with
an intermission in the mid-
dle. Except where noted,
each event is held in the
large lecture hall (Room
101) of the Richards Un-
dergraduate Physics Labo-
ratory, located near the in-
tersection of Academic
Way and Chieftan Way on
the west side of the Florida
State University campus.
The themes for this
year's Saturday Morning
Physics programs are as
follows:

Oct. 17-- "The Flying
Circus of Physics": While
typically a separate event,
this year the always-popu-
lar Flying Circus of
Physics will also be includ-
ed in the Saturday Morning
Physics schedule of events.
At the circus, members of
the Department of Physics
are ready to show the more
playful side of scientific in-
quiry -- and they're hoping
that Tallahassee-area resi-
dents of all ages will come
out to share in the fun.


Oct. 24-- "Nuclei, Neu-
tron Stars and Black
Holes": Enter the extraor-
dinary world of superdense
matter.

Oct. 31-- "Physics of
Sports": Take a lively look
at the amazing physics of
sports.

Nov. 7 -- "The Science
and Tc'IIhnIh._-\, of Mag-
nets": Visit the National
High Magnetic Field Labo-
ratory (1800 E. Paul Dirac
Drive, Innovation Park)
and learn about magnet re-
search and future applica-
tions in our society. A map
of Innovation park can be
viewed at
www.fsu.edu/Campus/new
map/inparkz.shtml.

Nov. 14-- "From Elec-
trons to Quarks": What are
we really made of? Here's
your chance to discover the
answers.

Nov. 21 -- "Astronomy
in the New Millennium":
Every day brings a new
discovery in astronomy.

October is Greenways Trails Month


Greenways and
trails celebrate
record-setting year
of visitation
TALLAHASSEE The Florida De-
partment of Environmental Protec-
tion's Office of Greenways & Trails
(OGT) invites residents and visitors
to celebrate Florida's natural beauty
this October during Greenways &
Trails Month by enjoying a healthy
outdoor activity at one of the state's
more than 8,000 miles of land trails
and 4,000 miles of paddling trails.
During the 2008-2009 fiscal year,
Florida's greenways and trails wel-
comed an unprecedented number of
visitors, more than 3.5 million, under-


scoring the value of these attractions
for Florida's recreation and tourism
industries.
"Greenways and trails not only of-
fer nature-based recreation and alter-
native, energy-saving transportation
routes, but also have far-reaching
economic benefits," said Jena Brooks,
Director of DEP's Office of Green-
ways & Trails. "With visitation num-
bers up nearly 600,000 from the pre-
vious fiscal year, Florida's award-
winning system of greenways and
trails are increasingly attracting visi-
tors from around the world that sup-
port the state's tourism industry."
Recent visitation numbers also
show that longer trails are becoming a
popular part of the greenways and
trails system. Though still in develop-
ment, the 106-mile, OGT-managed


Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail
attracted 1.1 million visitors during
the 2008-2009 fiscal year, an increase
of nearly double the more than
637,000 visitors in the previous fiscal
year.
At the other end of the state, five
counties have come together to create
the 260-mile St. Johns River-to-Sea
Loop through northeast-central Flori-
da, to be completed in time for the
2013 celebration of the 500th an-
niversary of Spain's arrival in Florida.
The potential of long-distance and
loop trails to offer destination experi-
ences, complete with the growth of
supporting businesses, adds another
dimension to the future of Florida's
greenways and trails.

Basset hound survives cottonmouth



bites thanks to UF vets


Sarah Carey
UF News Service
When Margarita, a 10-
year-old basset hound, was
bitten by a cottonmouth
snake recently, her quick-
thinking owner rushed the
dog to the University of
Florida's Veterinary Med-
ical Center for treatment
right away.


GAINESVILLE The
U.S. Health Resources and
Services Administration
Department of Health and
Human Services has award-
ed more than $900,000 to
the University of Florida
College of Nursing to facil-
itate transition of its ad-
vanced practice nursing ed-
ucation program from the
master's to the doctoral lev-
el. This strategic move will
increase availability of pri-
mary health-care providers
in underserved areas and
help address the critical
nursing faculty shortage.
The Doctor of Nursing
Practice degree, or DNP, is
a national initiative led by
the American Association
of Colleges of Nursing and
reflects a significant change
in nursing education. Uni-
versities have traditionally
offered master's degrees to
prepare nurses for ad-
vanced practice.
"The DNP prepares ad-
vanced practice nurses with
the knowledge, skills and
abilities needed in today's
and tomorrow's complex
health-care environment,
and provides advanced
practice nurses with educa-
tional backgrounds compa-
rable to health-care practi-
tioners in other fields," said
Susan Schaffer, Ph.D.,
A.R.N.P, a clinical associ-
ate professor and depart-
ment chair who serves as
the grant's program direc-
tor.
The college admitted
post-master's students to
the DNP program in 2006
and will become one of the
first schools in Florida and
nationally to enable stu-
dents with a bachelor's de-
gree in nursing to earn their
DNP degree.
The three-year grant will
support nurses with bache-
lor of science or master's
degrees in nursing for ad-
mission to UF to enter adult
acute care, adult, family
and pediatric DNP nurse
practitioner specialty
tracks.
A major emphasis of the
program will be the educa-
tion of culturally diverse
and culturally competent
nurse practitioners who will
help address the nation's
shortage of primary care
providers, especially in rur-
al and urban medically un-
derserved areas.
The need for primary
care providers in Florida is
severe. In 2008, 65 out of
67 counties were designat-
ed as primary health-care
professional shortage areas.
"The College of Nursing
has always been committed


In doing so, Sandra
Fields Seymour, Ph.D.,
A.R.N.P, a recently retired
associate professor in UF's
College of Nursing, and her
husband, Larry, of Ocala
followed a cardinal rule in
preventing death or lasting
tissue damage from snake
bite in an animal: They
sought immediate evalua-


to providing clinical experi-
ences for students in rural
and urban underserved ar-
eas and this grant will allow
us to further expand that
reach," Schaffer said. "By
exposing our students to
more diverse clinical expe-
riences, we will be encour-
aging them to continue
work in these areas after
they graduate."
From 2005 to 2007, be-
tween 27 percent and 49
percent of UF master's de-
gree nursing students in
their last semesters of study
indicated they intended to
work in medically under-
served areas. In fall 2008,
63 percent of the college's
post-master's DNP students
reported that they intended
to work with underserved
clients after graduation.
The grant will allow the
college to place greater em-
phasis on cultural diversity
and competence throughout
the DNP curriculum, in-
crease clinical placement of
students in public health
units and in rural or urban
underserved areas, and con-
tinue classroom discussion
of ways in which nurse
practitioners can address
unmet health-care needs.
Students also will explore
employment opportunities
in underserved areas.
The grant also will ad-
dress the critical nursing
faculty shortage that is re-
stricting enrollment in un-
dergraduate and graduate
nursing programs nation-
wide. Faculty retirements
expected in the next decade
will further fuel the serious
nursing faculty shortage.
DNP graduates will be
qualified for academic fac-
ulty positions and can serve
as clinical preceptors for
undergraduate and graduate
nursing students.
"I am very appreciative
of the hard work of our fac-
ulty in obtaining this grant
and grateful to the U.S.
Health Resources and Ser-
vices Administration for
recognizing that advanced
practice nurses play in our
health-care system and how
the expansion of education
for these nurses can im-
prove care for patients,"
said Kathleen Ann Long,
Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N.,
dean of the UF College of
Nursing. "Nursing is a vital
part of our growing and
changing health-care sys-
tem, and highly educated
advanced practice nurses,
at the doctoral level, will be
prepared to improve prac-
tice, educate new clinicians
and elevate our profes-
sion."


tion by a veterinarian.
Margarita, whose owners
have now nicknamed her
"Snake Bite Warrior," sur-
vived her bites and today
appears no worse for the
wear. "It was an unfortu-
nate situation where dog
and snake were each doing
what they were born to do,
but with serious conse-
quences for both," Seymour
said.
Margarita arrived at the
UF VMC on July 3 around
midnight with two strike
wounds. Soon her signs of
swelling, or envenomation,
had greatly increased.
"Margarita had obviously
received enough venom to
cause serious side effects,"
said Kate Ogawa, D.V.M.,
an intern in small animal
medicine and surgery. Vet-
erinarians quickly decided
to administer antivenin six
vials, in fact.
"She also developed
heart arrhythmias, which
fortunately did not become
severe enough to require
treatment," Ogawa said.
"We closely monitored
Margarita's strike areas and
swelling for signs of tissue
death that would require
surgery. She was lucky. Her
wounds healed uneventful-
ly, and she did not need fur-
ther treatment."
The side effects of
snakebite can vary greatly
depending on the particular
snake, and the dose of ven-
om the animal receives,
veterinarians say. Bites
from rattlesnakes, cotton-
mouths and copperheads

garita, in front, and her companion, Mariah, at home in

can result in severe tissue
swelling, blood-clotting
abnormalities, heart ar-
rhythmias, organ damage
and tissue death around the
bite site.
Not all pets that are bit-
ten by a venomous snake
require antivenin, since oc-
casionally pets will receive
a dry bite, with no venom
injected, but a prompt eval-
uation by a veterinarian is
recommended. Hospital-
ization may also be needed
for veterinarians to monitor
for heart arrhythmias as
well as to provide fluid
support, pain medication
and frequent reassessment.
Although antivenin can
be lifesaving, how much to
give is a judgment call,
since the amount of venom
contained in a snake's bite
is unknown. In general,
however, the more an-


tivenin received quickly,
the better, veterinarians
say.
"Unfortunately, an-
tivenin is quite expensive
and can be cost prohibitive
for some owners to admin-
ister several vials," Ogawa
said. "Additionally, an-
tivenin for veterinary med-
icine is currently not being
manufactured in this coun-
try."
Thanks to the efforts of
UF snake envenomation
expert Michael Schaer,
D.V.M., UF was able to
procure an antivenin prod-
uct from Mexico. That par-
ticular product was manu-
factured for people, but UF
was able to obtain permis-
sion for animal use from
the Food and Drug Admin-
istration. Reactions to an-
tivenin are possible also,
which is another reason


The side effects of
snakebite can vary
greatly depending on
the particular snake,
and the dose of
venom the animal
receives,
veterinarians say.
Bites from
rattlesnakes,
cottonmouths and
copperheads can
result in severe tissue
swelling, blood-
clotting abnormalities,
heart arrhythmias,
organ damage and
tissue death around
the bite site.

why victims of snakebite
need to be monitored care-
fully for several days after
the antivenin is adminis-
tered.
"I would urge people to
protect themselves as much
as possible from venomous
snakes, and as such I can-
not recommend killing the
snake for identification,"
Ogawa said. "If the snake is
already dead, bringing it in
for positive identification
can help, as some snakes
have more potent venom
than others. Dead snakes
still can cause envenoma-
tion, so extreme care
should be taken when mov-
ing the body. The antivenin
contains antibodies against
the venom of most snakes,
so knowing exactly what
snake it was is not nearly as
important as getting treat-
ment as soon as possible."


October is Greenways Trails Month


Continued From Page 11

Recognizing the many
benefits of the state's
greenways and trails, Flori-
da Governor Charlie Crist
officially proclaimed Octo-
ber as Greenways and

100 events throughout the
state will take place during
the month long celebration,
highlighting the value of
Florida's greenways and
trails as an affordable, and
accessible source of recre-
ation, providing health
benefits and an effective
boost to Florida's tourism.

She is that. She not only helps activate people but she jumps right in, gets involved and does what needs doing. Many of you saw and maybe talked with her at Wellborn's Blueberry Festival. She was the master of ceremonies for the entire festival and honored us with a few songs. (Linda is quite a talented musician, but has not pursued that career.) She started singing in the upscale clubs in her younger days, where she met her husband. They have made a good team now for over 35 years. Now, though, she sings for pleasure only. She's right in there no matter what the community is doing. She will no doubt be one of the goblins giving out candy at the Halloween party on Oct. 31, helping dish out food at the Thanksgiving Dinner on Nov. 21, and helping Santa with the presents on Dec. 18. (All events are at the Wellborn Community Association Building on the brick road in Wellborn.) If you need a notary or you want her to do your marriage ceremony she's a professional. She says she does two or three weddings a year. Give her a call or stop by her wonderful antique store, the Kornucopia. The Kornucopia is a select antique store with some of the most wonderful antiques and antique vintage collectibles anywhere to be found. She and Donald have handpicked them from all over the United States. Folks from as far away as Holland make it a regular stop when they are in the United States. Out of state as well as local customers drop in when they want something different, special or unique. She and husband, Donald, opened the Kornucopia in 1988, in addition to having a cattle farm north of town. She is a native to the area and has been here or nearby all her life. She can truly claim this area her home as she is the fourth generation living here. Linda doesn't just talk about things, she jumps right in. In the last election she ran against a popular candidate and gave it her best to make him work hard for reelection. She also wrote for the newspaper until she resigned to jump into politics. She was very supportive of the new prison and did her share working to see it come to the Wellborn area to help give the town and the area a well-needed boost. She was on the zoning board for six years and was chairman of it for three. She was one of the founding members of the Wellborn Community Association and has served recently as secretary. She also is a member of the Wellborn Neighborhood Watch and has served as secretary for that organization. The Association for Home and Community Education is 74 years strong.

During the gathering, which brought together business leaders from around the community, Scarborough laid his cards on the table by asking, "How can the business community help our school district become an Adistrict?" His answer was simple. "One thing we find out really quickly is that if you help a student find that the math, science and reading they are taking in school is relevant, then they're less likely to give up." He proposed to leaders that the district is in need of just 50 more coaches willing to commit to playing an active role in the academic and career future of local students. The school system has developed the I Care! 9th Grade Initiative, which pairs local mentors, volunteers and faith-based organizations with students as a way to promote academic excellence. Under the initiative funded by a workforce development grant, business leaders can help by offering paid internships to students who qualify. The aim is to give students real-world job experience while still in high school. The luncheon was sponsored by Keith Leibfried, CEO of First Federal Bank of Florida, with as invocation by Dennis Cason, director of the chamber.

"What we need from you as a chamber and a community is to get creative. Our teachers need your help. They need to know that you care as a community." During the presentation, a video message was delivered by John Martz, Executive Vice President and CEO of Suwannee Valley Electric Cooperative. Martz said, "It's important that jobs through education produce candidates who will be future business leaders. It's important that our education process produces seniors that can contribute back to the community." Other things business leaders could do to help, Scarborough said, was to encourage their employees to serve as coaches, contribute to Suwannee Foundation for Excellence, participate in alumni and booster clubs, assist with dissemination of information, serve on APTor advisory committees, volunteer, and to simply get involved.

They suddenly realize they've put off painting the house yet another year and try to get it all done before winter hits. Fall can be an ideal time to paint. Landscaping is established and is less vulnerable to damage and the weather is cool enough to work comfortably. The temperature should be at least 50 degrees outside in order to apply paint. You'll want to caulk before you paint. Buy some high-quality caulking, arm yourself with a ladder and go around your house checking for gaps around windows, doors, dryer vents and plumbing outlets. Check the inside as well as the outside of your home. For more information contact Live Oak Paint & Flooring.Is Fall a good time to paint the exterior of my house?

At least in the eyes of my fellow 7th-grade males. You see, I was among the select, fortunate few, soon to have his first real date. Sue Fisher had been my dream girl since fourth grade. And now she had consented to allow me to escort her to our annual fall festival dance, where she might even be elected queen! Sue was a cute little blonde with a bubbly personality. But even more importantly to a tiny 12year-old male was the fact that she was the only girl in my 7th-grade class who didn't stand a head taller than me. That was an important consideration, as it meant I could demonstrate my box step mastery on the dance floor without my head being buried in her bosom. (It was only later in life that I learned there were far worse things in this world.) But among my 7th grade peers, there was one important caveat to this being "a real first date." It only qualified as such, if sue would let me kiss her goodnight! Oh the stress. And so the big evening finally arrived. I was dressed in my Sunday suit, complete with a tie knotted into a Windsor by mama. Since it was a formal event, she provided me two hankies. One to show, one to blow. My folks had even laid out the cash so I could present my "date" a corsage. I said a silent prayer of thanks when Sue's mother quickly took it from my trembling, sweating hands and did the honors herself of pinning it to the bodice of her daughter's party dress. At the dance, all went well ... at first. We marveled at the gymnasium's beautiful crepe paper decorations, while bemoaning the fact that the smell of sweaty gym socks still somehow lingered. Between dances, Sue visited and giggled with girlfriends, while we manly men stood nearby talking manly things. But all the while, in the back of my mind was one burning question; would Sue make this a real date by allowing me to kiss her goodnight? Yes, all was great, until the moment when our Fall Festival Queen was finally revealed. The 8thgrade class president stepped to the microphone and announced that 7th-grader, Sue Fisher had been elected our queen. Sue squealed in delight, but her joy was short lived. For no sooner had the applause died down, than the 8th-grader apologized, explaining he'd transposed the two names and that Sue was not the winner, but the runner-up to the real victor -an 8th-grade girl. As you can imagine, Sue was crushed. And all of us 7thgraders knew in our hearts that she had been robbed of her victory by certain, nefarious -if unidentified -8th grade cads. To Sue's credit, she made it through the crowning ceremony, but with reddened eyes. And as soon as it was over, she raced to the gym's payphone and called for her daddy to come pick her up. So there I was, alone. My anxiously awaited first goodnight kiss would have to wait. Ironically, I have no recollection of who the young lady was who so honored me. I suspect the experience was equally forgettable to her. No, I don't remember that first kiss, but forever burned into my memory is that first kiss missed.

BIBLE VERSE"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 Viewpoints/Opinions College education is a costly proposition with tuition, room and board at some colleges topping $50,000 a year. Is it worth it? Increasing evidence suggests that it's not. Since the 1960s, academic achievement scores have plummeted, but student college grade point averages (GPA) have skyrocketed. In October 2001, the Boston Globe published an article entitled "Harvard's Quiet Secret: Rampant Grade Inflation." The article reported that a record 91 percent of Harvard University students were awarded honors during the spring graduation. The newspaper called Harvard's grading practices "the laughing stock of the Ivy League." Harvard is by no means unique. For example, 80 percent of the grades given at the University of Illinois are A's and B's. Fifty percent of students at Columbia University are on the Dean's list. At Stanford University, where F grades used to be banned, only 6 percent of student grades were as low as a C. In the 1930s, the average GPAat American colleges and universities was 2.35, about a C plus; today the national average GPAis 3.2, more than a B. Today's college students are generally dumber than their predecessors. An article in the Wall Street Journal (1/30/97) reported that a "bachelor of arts degree in 1997 may not be the equal of a graduation certificate from an academic high school in 1947." The American Council on Education found that only 15 percent of universities require tests for general knowledge; only 17 percent for critical thinking; and only 19 percent for minimum competency. According to a recent National Assessment of Adult Literacy, the percentage of college graduates proficient in prose literacy has declined from 40 percent to 31 percent within the past decade. Employers report that many college graduates lack the basic skills of critical thinking, writing and problem-solving and some employers find they must hire English and math teachers to teach them how to write memos and perform simple computations. What is being labeled grade inflation is simply a euphemism for academic dishonesty. After all, it's dishonesty when a professor assigns a grade the student did not earn. When a university or college confers a degree upon a student who has not mastered critical thinking skills, writing and problem-solving, it's academic dishonesty. Of course, I might be in error calling it dishonesty. Perhaps academic standards have been set so low that idiots could earn A's and B's. Academic dishonesty and deception go beyond fraudulent grades. "Minding the Campus" is a newsletter published by the Manhattan Institute. Edward Fiske tells a chilling tale of deception titled "Gaming the College Rankings" (9/17/09). The U.S. News and World Report college rankings are worshiped by some college administrators, and they go to great lengths to strengthen their rankings. Some years ago, University of Miami omitted scores of athletes and special admission students so as to boost SATscores of incoming freshmen. At least one college mailed dollar bills to alumni with a request that they send them back to the annual fund thereby inflating the number of alumni donors. "Gaming the College Rankings" contains an insert by John Leo, who is the editor of "Minding the Campus," reporting that in the mid-1990s, Boston University raised its SATscores by excluding the verbal scores of foreign students whilst including their math scores. Monmouth University simply added 200 SATpoints to its group scores. University of California reported that 34 of its professors were members of a prestigious engineering association when in fact only 17 of their current faculty were. Baylor University offered students, who were already admitted to the university, $300 in bookstore credits to take the SATagain in the hopes of boosting Baylor's SATaverages. Academic dishonesty, coupled with incompetency, particularly at the undergraduate level, doesn't bode well for the future of our nation. And who's to blame? Most of the blame lies at the feet of the boards of trustees, who bear ultimate responsibility for the management of our colleges and universities. Walter E.

That's the spirit that lives in each and every small business owner. That's what drives them to create jobs and continue to build our economy. There are, however, many challenges that new and even well-established businesses face-in particular, the rising cost of healthcare and health insurance. The inability to affect or reduce health insurance premiums from year to year continues to be the greatest challenge for small business owners, along with the lack of competition and choice in the marketplace. For these reasons, small business should be the focus of the healthcare debate. It's baffling that small business owners need to reiterate why they need reform. They continue to see examples of how big businesses like Safeway and General Mills are doing great things for their workforce, driving down costs, and just want the same. But here's a newsflash: Under current laws and regulations, small businesses can't do it. So their message is simple: Fix the broken marketplace. For decades, small employers and the self-employed have been forced to bob and weave between the individual and small-group marketplace. These two markets either deny individuals the coverage they need, or they raise rates so high, employers can't afford to keep coverage. Something is wrong with this picture. The Senate and the House of Representatives have been striving to craft an acceptable healthcare reform bill. As they work, they need to know what's not acceptable to small business owners: * An employer mandate: Some proposals require employers to offer healthcare to full-time and part-time employees. Research shows an employer mandate could cost 1.6 million jobs, with more than 1 million lost in the small business sector. The greatest effect will be on low-income workers, who will pay through depressed wages and lost jobs. * Apayroll tax: The House would charge a payroll tax of up to 8 percent on all employers with a payroll of $500,000 or more, if they don't provide "qualified" health insurance to their employees. The tax would apply no matter whether the business makes a profit or not. * Apublic option: Some bills establish a government-run public option. As advocates for competition and choice, we're deeply concerned that a public option would further compromise the viability of private insurance and eventually would restrict choice to a single plan: the government-run plan. After 15 years of loudly shouting at Congress about this issue, small business owners should be steaming mad that it's taken this long to get a real discussion going about real reform. Maybe that has something to do with the power and money that comes from the insurance lobby. Maybe now that Congress is seriously engaged, they'll listen to their real constituency, not those who can afford to pad their pockets. Here's something every voter needs to know: Small business owners need and want reform. To that end, we support market reforms that will increase access to insurance plans and drive more competition and lower costs, not a bunch of new taxes and confusing rhetoric. That's the only way we'll get more Americans covered at lower costs. Americans in general, and small business owners in particular, should contact their representatives and urge them to pass the reforms that truly help small businesses and their employees Dan Danner is president and CEO of the National Federation of Independent Business in Washington, D.C.

All Homecoming By Stephenie Livingston stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com Zee and Angel Nunez fell in love over a fresh cup of coffee and a warm bagel. With the grand opening of their new bagel shop affectionately called 'ZeeAngel' this Saturday, they hope to share with Branford the same magic they discovered together 15 years ago. Growing up in a Jewish community in New York City, Zee was introduced to "the bagel world" at an early age. "I ate bagels until they were coming out of my head," Zee said, completely serious. Through the Jewish community, she learned great recipes and taught herself how to use fresh quality ingredients over the course of 45 years of living in NYC. Then, on a whim, Zee packed up her things and moved to sunshine and long, sandy beaches. "I was tired of the traffic and the depressing cold weather," she said. So Zee found herself in Florida, and it wasn't long before she was discussing food with an Argentinean named Angel in a coffee shop in Coral Springs. "Shhh, don't tell him, but he wasn't really my type at first. I was used to the blond hair, blue eyes type," she said smiling. "But we bonded thanks to good food and coffee." However, the one thing the Nunezes love more than food is their children. "Baby, how many kids do we have?," Zee shouted over to Angel, working at the coffee counter. "Oh, I don't know. A lot," Angel replied. Zee and Angel are both passionate about helping homeless By Ana Smith Last Sunday was "Homecoming Day" at O'Brien Baptist Church, and as always, there were a lot of memories of those who have "gone home" since last year. It was wonderful seeing some folks I haven't seen in a while, some who live in other areas of Suwannee County and surrounding areas, and some who live out of our county ... some out of state ... who came back for this annual gathering. The children always provide an opportunity to smile as they sing their program, and several of our young teens added to the memories as they closed the musical portion of our morning worship with a couple of contemporary hymns. I hope to have a few photos for next week, but this time I was up in the choir myself and didn't have the opportunity to take any photos. God bless Amy Fletcher, Carol Whitty and those folks who have helped the children in past weeks get ready for this event. And thanks to all those folks who are part of our hospitality committee for the excellent way they set up these gatherings, setting the tables, arranging the variety of foods, keeping the food lines moving and everyone taken care of, and cleaning up. There's a lot of work involved, and they do it so well! Next will be Thanksgiving, and in December our annual Christmas program. As tradition holds, there was plenty of food spread out on about five long tables, on the kitchen serving counter, and one room dedicated to the variety of desserts, always a popular room for young and old alike. This year we enjoyed a special sermon provided by Paul Bell, nephew of Pastor George Fryar. Several members of his family were on hand, and Paul and his wife Emily are a young couple involved in the missionary field. They are currently in preparation for their upcoming mission assignment to Bosnia, and listening to this young man preach to our congregation leaves no doubt his heart is full of love for Our Lord. They both will certainly be a blessing to the mission field. Their expected date to leave for Bosnia is February, and we will continue to be in prayer for this wonderful couple. Congratulations to Valerie and Patrick on their first wedding anniversary this past Sunday. Valerie is the daughter of Pastor Dear Suwannee Democrat, Thank you for publishing the announcement of our 1963 Branford High School class reunion. The 10 October event was filled with laughter and memories. Aphotograph of the class members who attended is attached. Our next class reunion is scheduled for October 1, 2011.

children. "We've taken them in over the years. If they didn't have a criminal record and needed a place to stay, they had a home with us," said Zee. Zee and Angel have 11 children ranging in age from 21-47. When asked how many are their biological children they simply say, "Just a couple." Currently, they are waiting to adopt a son. "We want to make it a dozen," Zee said. Zee and Angel moved to Branford five years ago to live more quietly. They found the perfect house and were happy, but still had not fulfilled their mutual dream of opening a bagel and coffee shop. Then one day, they took a wrong turn and discovered a little building they had not noticed before next to Badcock's Furniture. "We were praying for a bagel and coffee shop. I thought this building was perfect and turns out it was for lease," said Zee. "We made the wrong turn at the right time." Now customers can come by and enjoy a bagel "any way you want it" as well as specialty coffee and teas. "We have bagel supreme, pizza bagels, chili bagels, bagel subs ...," Zee continued to list at least a dozen different bagel concoctions. "Sweet tooth bagel, cream cheese and cherry bagel. We also have fresh donuts, which nobody else in town has." ZeeAngel also features a variety of lunch and dinner items. "You can literally eat breakfast, lunch and dinner here," said Zee. If anyone has doubt about Zee's bagels, all they have to do is ask Angel. "He said he married me because I was different and I cook good. Isn't that right, babe?," Zee asked. "That's right," said Angel.

A: Many older Americans suffer from diminishing de xter ity that makes performing everyday tasks difficult. And many more may have a temporary impediment, like a cast or tennis elbow, that can make everyday actions like brushing and flossing your teeth a challenge. You don't want your oral health to suffer because of it. Here are some steps you can take at home to make your oral health tasks more manageable: • Make your toothbrush handle easier to grip by expanding its size with a sponge, inserting the handle into a slit-open rubber ball or into a bicycle handle grip. Or wrap an elastic bandage or adhesive tape around the handle. • Lengthen the toothbrush handle by tying a piece of wood or plastic, like a ruler, a Popsicle stick or a tongue depressor to it. • An electric toothbrush, which will have a thicker grip and does much of the brushing work for you, might be the answer. • Try buying one of the many ov er-thecounter devices that make flossing easier. Talk with your dentist about ways to get around a permanent or temporary disability and care for your teeth and mouth.Presented as a service to the community by 506906-FASK DR. MANTOOTH362-6556 (800) 829-6506HERBERT C. MANTOOTH, D.D.S., P.A.602 Railroad Ave. Live Oak, FL TIPS FOR THOSE WITH DEXTERITY ISSUES By Ana Smith The weather is turning cooler, fall is just around the corner, and with the cooler temperatures it's time to think about, and make a few preparations for, our four-legged family members. Right now sandspurs are a problem, not only for us humans but also for our pets, especially if they are outdoors all the time and most especially if they have any kind of shaggy or long-haired coats, whether a dog or a cat. Cats will regularly groom themselves, despite the presence of sandspurs, but sometimes the spur is caught so tightly in the fur that it gets pushed further down into the skin and can be an irritation. Take a few minutes out of your day to brush out your pet's fur. It may take several minutes to get it done, but your pet will be grateful. And in the case of a dog, it could mean the difference between your pet having a really matted coat with a constant source of irritation, and also bringing those sandspurs up on your porch or in your house, in which case you will be dealing with the problem yourself. It's also time to start making a place for your pet to find shelter when the really cold temperatures hit, and as cool as our mornings are already, it's a possibility we'll have an early winter this year. If you have a place where your pet is usually housed, make sure there are no places where strong winds can blow in on your pet, and get him/her settled where you want your pet to be now, so it will be used to that one place as its sleeping area. My personal "outdoor" pet is large, and he is getting up there in age. I have found that, when it starts to get too cool for him, he will come to the back door and whine. Although he prefers to be outside, he knows when it is time to get out of the weather. When that time comes, we have an old, really thick blanket that is his alone, and he comes in and sleeps near the dryer and the return grate, where it is always warm and comfortable for him. And yes, he does get a good brushing before he is allowed to stay indoors, even if it is just in the laundry room. If you have any concerns about what to do for your outdoor pets when the weather turns cold, call your vet or your local shelter for some good advice. Most of it is just common sense, and your desire to protect your pet. Whether it's in your house, garage, or your barn, provide a good, warm place. Most radio stations and TVnews stations will advise you when your should bring in your pets (and your plants); take heed, and please be prepared. If it's too cold for you, then it's probably too cold for them, especially those without a thick fur coat. Our shelter is located about 8 miles south of Live Oak just off US 129. Our address is 11150 144th Street, at the north end of McAlpin, on the same road as the big county landfill. Our hours are Monday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., on Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to about noon, but if you plan to come out on Saturday, please call first to be sure the animal control officer is there. He is subject to being out on a call at any time. The office number is 386-208-0072, and we invite you to come out and visit with our furry residents. We have so many that are waiting for that one special "forever" home. God bless! Submitted Formerly Magnolia Baptist Church, Landmark Baptist Church in Branford, (Highway 129 South, 1 mile south of US 27) announces its 85th homecoming on October 18, 2009. We want to invite all past members and Branford residents to this joyous occasion. As the pastor of Landmark Baptist Church, I have been able to go back through time and look at some of the glorious history of this church and have seen the effect that it has made on this city. Most of the early members of the church are now grandparents and some still attend church here. Some have gone on to be with the Lord. One thing that has not changed is that we are still an old-fashioned Independent Conservative Fundamental King James preaching church. Sunday School starts at 10 a.m. and our morning service will begin at 11 a.m. with a baptismal service to follow the morning service. We will then go over to the fellowship hall and have dinner on the grounds, returning to the church for an afternoon service. We would ask you to please come and celebrate with us. If you have any questions please call Pastor Steve Redman at 1-386-792-4370. Come worship with us.McAlpin American Legion ladies' auxiliary unit donates school supplies Pre-K and kindergarten.

Pharmacy & Your Health 552998-FWhat is RSV?Respiratory synctial virus (RSV) is a virus that infects the respiratory tract. Almost all children are infected with this virus by 2 or 3 years of age. Adults are also susceptible to infection with RSV. The virus typically affects the lower part of the lungs of infants and young children, and the upper respiratory tract of older children and adults. The elderly and persons with a compromised immune system also may experience infection of the lower respiratory tract. The virus can be spread from person to person, or from contact with the surface of a contaminated object, such as a toy. Signs and symptoms include shortness of breath, wheezing, cough, and runny nose. The sinuses and ears also may be affected. The fall and winter seasons are typically the time of year with the highest rates of infection with RSV, especially in infants born prematurely. Due to the increased risk for severe complications in certain persons, several preventative measures are recommended. Frequent hand-washing is recommended to help prevent infection. Avoidance of exposure to tobacco smoke is also recommended for prevention of RSV. Beta-agonist bronchodilator medications, such as albuterol, may be used to alleviate wheezing. Palivizumab ( Synagis ) is a monoclonal antibody that is used for RSV prevention in children with increased risk for severe infection.by Jeffrey F.

In January Shaw had a piece of rib removed with a tumor growing on it that was pressing against his lung. "I don't wish that stuff on my own worst enemy," said Shaw. "And I don't have any enemies, I don't hold grudges. And my wife hates me for it," he said with a smile. He has gone through chemotherapy twice and radiation once, and beaten the cancer back. For now. Shaw hopes he gets good news Friday. In the end, though, it may not make much difference. This is the third time his cancer has gone into remission. His doctor says the disease will return in time, and his case has been deemed terminal. "It'll come back and bite me one day," Shaw said. In the wake of the news, Shaw, 60, says he's begun to see things differently. "I just kind of take it three months at a time," said Shaw. "You don't live for quantity anymore, you just live for quality." Shaw sat down in the department's situation room with Democrat reporter Jeff Waters recently to talk about where he's been and what he's seen along the way.Getting startedShaw finished high school, then set out to see the world. He went on three tours of duty with the U.S. Navy. "Yeah, Woodstock was going on and I was sitting off the coast of North Vietnam," he said. Shaw was stationed on the U.S.S. Long Beach, a nuclear-powered cruiser, "the only ship of its class in the world," he said. About four years later, in the early 70s, Shaw began his career in law enforcement with the road patrol of the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office in upstate New York, 90 miles from New York City. "So we got all the overflow from the city," said Shaw. "That was the mountain resort area, the Catskill Mountains and it was comparable to Suwannee County because it was all rural." The road patrol was new, Shaw said, only about two years old when he started.TOUGH CASEContinued From Page 1A "We lacked a lot of equipment and other resources," Shaw said.The road to Live OakBy 1975, Shaw found himself in Miami where he worked for what's now called the Miami-Dade Police Department. "It was fun down there," said Shaw. "It was party town." But it was non-stop for the department. When officers reported for duty they might be facing 30 to 40 calls. "Back then you were busy enough that you had very little time to do any proactive police work, you just went from call to call," Shaw said. He said major drug operations were based in Miami and most of the calls dealt with that. "The Colombians were trying to take over the drug trade back then so we went to a lot of calls. There were a lot of motels there where you had execution style slayings almost every night," Shaw said. "So we would go in there, secure the crime scene and let homicide take over." After a couple of stints in departments around the state, Shaw reached a point in his life where he wanted more. "I got 21 years in law enforcement, there's got to be something else," Shaw told himself. He and the family moved to North Carolina where he started out as a meter reader and worked his way up to supervisor. Shaw remembers driving up to summer homes and noticing they'd been broken into. He knew then that all he could do was call the police. Before, he was the police. "Once you start working law enforcement, it kind of gets in your blood," he said. After another stint in law enforcement, Shaw returned to the private sector. It wasn't challenging enough, he said. "You always have to think in law enforcement," said Shaw. "Your mind's always working." In 2003, Shaw applied for the chief's position with the Chiefland Police Department. He consulted with his good friend Nolan McLeod, then chief of LOPD, whom he knew from other jobs. "He said they got their problems," said Shaw. "He said you need to keep your eyes glued to the newspapers. And it was at that time they had to let the whole police department go because they did not have an ordinance in the city charter that authorized them to enforce Florida law. They were making illegal arrests, so I got a hold of the city manager and said, 'I think I want to withdraw my application." That was when Shaw decided to make the move to Live Oak.On the job at LOPDShaw began his career at LOPD under McLeod as a uniformed officer. He became a detective in April 2004. One year later he was promoted to detective sergeant. He spent a couple of years rooting out pedophiles who prey on children in Internet chat rooms. Shaw said that job was "like shooting fish in a barrel." Shaw said they worked a case once where a 15-yearold Live Oak boy was trading child pornography with an undercover U.S. Postal Service investigator out of Pennsylvania. Shaw said a plan was hatched. The kid would meet the supposed "Pennsylvania man" at a local motel. "So we set everything up in one of the local motels and sure enough, here comes this kid," said Shaw. "He was kind of hesitant at first, looking around. The (LOPD) officer that was posing as the guy from Pennsylvania opened the door, kind of stretched like he had just gotten in from a long drive and waves him in. They talk for a while and an investigator was hiding in the bathroom. They went to a separate room where the kid thought the photographs were going to be taken. He walked in and we just looked at the kid and said yeah you're in deep (expletive) now," Shaw said laughing. Shaw, who with his wife Patricia has four children and five grandchildren, raised his eyebrows, sat back in his office chair and put his arms on his head as he talked about another case, a pedophile from Arizona he caught on the Internet. "The authorities there were trying to catch him for a while," said Shaw. "The guy supposedly said he had a good way of sniffing out cops. They were shocked when I called them." "I guess his long range sniffer didn't work," Shaw said amusingly.Roads not takenEarly on, Shaw had no inkling he would end up in law enforcement. for the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office in upstate New York. Information that Shaw obtained resulted in a search warrant on a man who was eventually charged with growing marijuana and selling it to high school students. Shaw was off duty, sitting in a restaurant when one of the pay phones rang inside the eatery. "The waitress answered the phone and she comes over and says, 'I don't know who it is, but they're calling for you on the pay phone.'" Shaw said the suspect's grandfather supposedly from "one of the 'families' out of Jersey City" was on the line. He told Shaw "this case didn't need to go to trial." "He sounded just like one of the Sopranos. He was very nice, not aggressive, he just kept dropping hints," Shaw said. Shaw told him to take his concerns to the district attorney. "He just said, 'Let me bring something to light here. Stop and think how I know you are where you are right now. I know you're off duty. How do you think I know where you are?' I started looking out the windows," said Shaw. "Obviously he was following me." Shaw said he was taken off road patrol for a few months as a precaution. His first night back on patrol, he was sent to investigate a shooting. "The way it came in was kind of strange," said Shaw. He said the desk sergeant told him to scramble his radio transmissions so they could communicate in privacy. He was told that a woman was picked up on Highway 17, now an interstate highway, by a truck driver and taken to a hospital. "She had been shot in the neck and she's claiming that her and her boyfriend were picked up in New Jersey ... she said they were both shot and her boyfriend's probably dead and that he's off on the side of the road somewhere, so they sent me down. And I found a body with a third eye," Shaw said pointing to a spot between his eyes. "And I sat there and I said 'Wait a minute, this is my first night on the road again, this ain't working." Shaw said he drove up the road to the county's public works department. "I drove up there where it was nicely lit and I called on the radio and said 'You need to send me everybody in the world, because if I get whacked, I want a witness," said Shaw. Shaw said folks from one of the aforementioned 'families' was later found to be responsible for the shooting.Continued From Page 1AShaw meets the 'real' SopranosShaw spent a couple of years rooting out pedophiles who prey on children in Internet chat rooms. He said that job was "like shooting fish in a barrel."But it did seem a fitting path to pursue. His father worked as a state corrections officer for 30 years. Shaw's younger brother worked in corrections as well. His grandfather was the first policeman in the town of Fallsburg, N.Y. And his father's brother was a policeman, killed in the line of duty in 1959 while responding to a burglary. Shaw never wanted to go into corrections like his dad wanted. He said they may make a lot of money, but there's a reason. "One day I told my father, 'Pop, you had a good job all these years, you were a bounty guard out riding a horse for 21 years, all you did was ride from work gang to work gang and take head counts and stuff'," Shaw said. "'But the way a prison works today you go through the door and they lock it behind you and guess what, you're serving time just like the rest of them.'" Besides, Shaw says he's always loved his chosen profession. "What makes it passionate for me is I know there's people out there who have no regard for other people or their property and those kinds of people are the ones that really hurt society today," he said. "They take what doesn't belong to them, they hurt people for no reason. And if you think about what society is right now what would it be like if there was no law enforcement. You'd have confusion out there."

Masoodi was named the Outstanding Clinical Faculty Educator. Mel Hartsfield, dean of the Tallahassee Regional campus, called Masoodi an "unsung hero" who provides students with an opportunity to see patients in a rural setting, which is part of the school's mission. Also honored was Thomasville Pediatrician Dr. Timothy Jones, who received the "Guardian of the Mission" award. FSU medical students spend a rotation at ACVworking alongside Masoodi, learning about medical practice in a rural community and gaining experience in the field of geriatrics. They divide their time between the clinic at Copeland Medical Center and Good Samaritan Center, ACV's skilled nursing facility. Masoodi explains, "During their Geriatric rotation, the students are required to see a certain number of patients with certain disabilities. They learn how to manage the care of the aging, but it is not just disease management. They explore new dimensions; it is interactive-dealing with the person as a whole, not just their particular disease or disability. They learn about the patient's activities and interactions-all different dynamics. By the time they leave ACV, the students have a much more complete picture of the various aspects of aging." Masoodi has been ACV's Medical Director since 2004. He is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Geriatrics, as well as Hospice and Palliative Care. In 2008, he was recognized as a Fellow in the American College of Physicians. Fellowship is an honor achieved by those recognized by their peers for personal integrity, superior competence in internal medicine, professional accomplishment and demonstrated scholarship.Photo:Submitted

Corey James Butts, 20, was discovered inside a Bassett's Dairy work truck at the dairy's warehouse by deputy Arthur Robinson, sheriff's reports show. Robinson said he became suspicious after discovering a blue Ford car outside the warehouse with keys in the ignition, as well as a pack of cigarettes on the hood, and after finding footprints near trucks and heavy equipment at a nearby construction site. Robinson later discovered stolen tools worth about $300 by a fence in front of the warehouse, according to reports. Butts told Robinson that he and a friend had stopped at the location to talk to his father, an employee at Bassett's Dairy, when he arrived at work. Butts said he was only at the warehouse to get something to drink and told Robinson his juvenile friend must have stolen the tools, reports show. Butts reportedly admitted he and his friend had taken fire extinguishers from a John Deere front-end loader and sprayed each other with them. Robinson took Butts into custody and transported him to the Suwannee County Jail.

Police were dispatched to the location mentioned around 7 a.m. and going from a description, located and detained Vasquez. The officers transported Vasquez to the victim's house where he was identified as the man who had attempted the mower theft, a police report shows. At that point, Javier allegedly threw a cell phone at an officer on duty, striking the officer in the leg. Vasquez had to be physically restrained before being taken to jail. Officers later discovered an active warrant for Vasquez's arrest.Live Oak man arrested for attempted mower theft An electrical fire that started in a box fan and spread to the ceiling damaged this 137th Place mobile home last Wednesday.

The 'Dogs started the game on a 40yard XavierPerry kickoff return. Perry added 10-yards on a Jimmy Taylor handoff before the Vikings took over on a Suwanee fumble. Jared Broxy , Jackson Brown and Markus Lane made a few good defensive stops. However, that didn't stop the Vikings who ran it in from the one yard line.

The final score was 52-7. The Bucs had 179 rushing yards and 112 passing yards. They had two turnovers on the first two possessions and six penalties for 55 yards. John Perry caught two passes for 27 yards with one touchdown. In rushing Perry had five for minus one yard. David Bass also caught two passes. His was for 85 yards and one touchdown. One of Bass's touchdown was for 65-yards. "The good thing is we won and we played a lot of kids," said Coach Bill Wiles. "I think we took 33 kids and played all of them. We went out there and really didn't play with any emotion at the beginning, but we ended up playing a pretty good game." The Bucs are 5-1. The Dragons are 0-6. Branford is off Friday.

The fact that you sat through 15 consecutive seasons (1964-1979) without a playoff appearance, in heat and snow doesn't matter. The fact that you bought your tickets when they played at the Polo Grounds, Yankee Stadium, Shea Stadium, The Yale Bowl and the Meadowlands doesn't matter either. When Michael Crabtree holds out for more money or Brandon Marshall dogs it for a bigger check, bless them. They are just working on their first million, they weren't born that way. The have-not-a-million should be given preference to the want-moremillions. One last example. A service group that bought tickets for over 50 years got their PSLbill. It was over $100,000. There will be no Giant games for a lot of school age football players, needy children and terminally ill people this organization helped with football tickets. You don't spend a few hundred grand for the rights to help people. The sad part is, we will continue to watch football. We will continue to root for our teams. But it will never be same. My New Jersey friends would say nothing personal, just business. This will be coming to a college stadium soon. Bull Gators and Golden Chiefs will find their loyalty tested by an even bigger check. Like selling groceries or cars, sports is big business, mega-business. The NFLis worth in excess of $32 billion dollars with a GNPthat probably ranks in the top 10 among nonoil producing nations. And you need a thousand dollars from me to buy a seat. When you watch the Yankees play in the playoffs and perhaps the World Series, keep an eye on the empty seats behind home plate. They cost $1,500 for a regular game, what could they cost for the playoffs? Don't they realize people with that kind of money are already in a skybox.Business as usualContinued From Page 1B Viking on a pass. The Vikings regained the momentum with a 26-yard pass followed by a 10-yard touchdown run. The Vikings led 14-7 and added a score following yet another Suwannee fumble. Suwannee's Josh Martin returned the kickoff 38 yards. Swinson added four yards. The 'Dogs were at 2nd & 6. An offside penalty by Raines made it 2nd & 1. Another penalty by Raines will give the 'Dogs a first down. Taylor completed one of two passes to Zanders for four yards before being sacked and ending the first quarter of play. In the half of play the 'Dogs trailed 21-7. An interception by Suwannee's Josh Martin gave the 'Dogs the ball early in the second quarter. The Vikings added another score with about five minutes to go in the half. Martin returned a Viking kickoff for 35yards. The Xman, Perry , added five yards, because a penalty by the 'Dogs set them back. Taylor completed a pass to Perry for 29-yards in one of the biggest offensive plays of the game. Another pass to Perry will add seven yards. Swinson added 13 yards on the next drive. The 'Dogs failed to get the end zone and a 32-yard field goal attempt failed. The third quarter wasn't any better for the 'Dogs. The first play of the second half was an 85-yard Raines touchdown. The 'Dogs finally scored on a one yard touchdown by J.R. Bass . Suwannee trailed 3514. Raines added another score early in the fourth to make it 42-14. Jason Bullock stepped in as quarterback for the 'Dogs. Hines picked up four yards after a handoff from Bullock . The 'Dogs fumbled on the snap on the next play, the fourth fumble of the night for Suwannee. The Vikings' final score came on a 10-yard run, making it 49-14. The 'Dogs fall to 3-3, 1-1 in District 2-2A. Raines improves to 2-3 (1-1). Suwannee is off Friday.

Facility Location :ADAGE Hamilton LLC proposes to construct the new ADAGE Power Plant that will be located in Hamilton County, at the intersection of State Road 6 and County Road 146, immediately west of Interstate Highway 75 and approximately 7.5 miles west of Jasper, Florida. Project :The fuel for the ADAGE Power Plant will be clean woody biomass including:clean untreated lumber;tree stumps; tree limbs;slash;wood residue;bark; sawdust;sander dust;wood chips; scraps;slabs;millings;shavings;and processed pellets made from wood or other forest residues.The fuel will be combusted in a bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) boiler to produce 53 megawatts (net) of electric power.Natural gas, ultralow sulfur fuel oil or propane will be used for BFB startup and stabilization. Based on the air permit application, the project will result in emissions increases of:247.5 tons per year (TPY) of carbon monoxide (CO);236 TPY of nitrogen oxides (NOX);140 TPY of particulate matter (PM);110 TPY of PM with a mean diameter of 10 micrometers (µm) or less (PM10);26 TPY of sulfuric acid mist (SAM);150 TPY of sulfur dioxide (SO2); 60 TPY of volatile organic compounds (VOC);0.175 TPY of lead (Pb) and 9.7 TPY of hydrogen chloride (HCl).A review for the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) and a best available control technology (BACT) determination were not required. To insure that emissions are less than the respective major source thresholds for PSD and hazardous air pollutants (HAP) and that compliance is achieved with applicable new source performance standards, ADAGE will install or implement the following air pollution control equipment and practices on the BFB boiler: fabric filters and good combustion design and practices (PM, PM10, CO, VOC);selective catalytic reduction (NOX, VOC and dioxin furan);and inherently low sulfur fuels and an induct sorbent injection system (HCl, SAM, SO2).Continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS) will be installed for SO2, NOX, CO and HCl.Emissions from emergency support equipment shall be controlled by use of clean fuels and good combustion and design.Reasonable precautions will be employed to minimize emissions from biomass handling, storage and processing. The Department reviewed an air quality analysis prepared by the applicant.The analysis demonstrated that the sum of ground-level concentrations of nitrogen dioxide (NO2), PM10, CO and SO2 caused by the project and background concentrations will be much less than the respective National or Florida ambient air quality standards (AAQS). The Technical Evaluation and Preliminary Determination document and the air quality analysis are available at the following web link: "http://www.dep.state.fl.us/air/emission/co nstruction/adagetech.pdf" www.dep.state.fl.us/air/emission/construction/adagetech.pdf Permitting Authority :Applications for air construction permits are subject to review in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 403, Florida Statutes (F.S.) and Chapters 62-4, 62-210 and 62-212, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).The proposed project is not exempt from air permitting requirements and an air permit is required to perform the proposed work. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Bureau of Air Regulation is the Permitting Authority responsible for making a permit determination for this project.The Bureau of Air Regulation's physical address is 111 South Magnolia Drive, Suite 4, Tallahassee, Florida 32301 and the mailing address is 2600 Blair Stone Road, MS #5505, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400.The Bureau of Air Regulation's phone number is 850/4880114.

Comments :The Permitting Authority will accept written comments concerning the proposed Draft Permit for a period of 14 days from the date of publication of the Public Notice.Written comments must be received by the Permitting Authority by close of business (5:00 p.m.) on or before the end of this 14-day period.If timely received comments result in a significant change to the Draft Permit, the Permitting Authority shall revise the Draft Permit and require, if applicable, another Public Notice.All comments filed will be made available for public inspection. Petitions :A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S.The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed with (received by) the Department's Agency Clerk in the Office of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 323993000 (Telephone:850/245-2241;Fax: 850/245-2303).Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within 14 days of publication of this Public Notice or receipt of a written notice, whichever occurs first.Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency action may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication.A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing.The failure of any person to file a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it.Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28106.205, F.A.C. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authority's action is based must contain the following information:(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known;(b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner;the name, address and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding;and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests will be affected by the agency determination;(c) A statement of when and how each petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact;(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action;(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes;and, (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency's proposed action.A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authority's action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Permitting Authority's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this Public Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit.Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.

L-R Esther Farro, "Bear" Jeanne Fannin, Shelia Madsen. Photos: SubmittedBy Cliff Starling Resource Consultant Suwannee County Conservation District About 50 participants attended the Wildlife Field Day and Archery Tournament at the University of Florida Research and Education Center in Live Oak recently. The field day was hosted by Suwannee County Conservation District (SCCD), University of Florida, Natural Resources Conservation District (NRCS) and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). The day started with Andy Jackson from SCCD welcoming attendees and offering an overview of the importance of supporting such educational event. The attendees were then escorted towards the 22 summer food plots planted at NFREC-Live Oak for demonstration purposes. There, Cliff Starling from SCCD, discussed how the plots were prepared, planted and fertilized among other practices that were applied to the plots. Starling emphasized that all the practices could be mimicked by anyone wanting to plant wildlife enhancement food plots. Dr. Anne Blount from University of Florida then discussed plant varieties and materials that were used for planting, and nutrient levels contained by each plant type. Dr. Blount covered 11 different plants and or mixes used in the research and demonstration plots, including brown top millet, iron clay peas, Biloxi soybean, Pennington Rackmaster, Biologic Biomass Legume Mix, aeshyenomone, alyce clover, sunflowers, Chufas, and WGF sorghum. Elena Toro from Suwannee County Extension Service provided an overview of the importance of taking soil samples for wildlife food plots. She stressed that soils in food plots typically have low pH and should be corrected to ensure that planting is successful. Jed Dillard of Jefferson County Extension Service UFIFAS provided a natural approach to wildlife plant management and the annual cycle of wildlife with regard to development. Jed demonstrated which naturally occurring plants can be used for wildlife feed and can be made more valuable with minimal management. He summed it up best saying that, "he was teaching wildlife management for the broke and lazy." Ricky Lackey from FWC gave insights on deer herd and turkey management. Lackey showed participants how using game cameras can be used to determine deer populations as well as predator counts. This technique can help achieve balance for wildlife harvesting, which promotes healthy populations. Lackey also provided information about the importance of keeping observation forms and harvest records. According to Lackey, not maintaining records can be detrimental to a management program. Chris Menhennett with NRCS shared ideas from the Conservation Programs that NRCS are now implementing throughout Suwannee County. One of particular interest to attendees was the Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP). This program is designed to protect, restore, develop and/or enhance wildlife habitat in sensitive areas, and to promote success of at-risk species. Following the educational portion of the program, participants got a chance to compete in an Archery Tournament. Approximately twenty people from the local area tested their archery skills on a realistic 3-D hunting course that SCCD and 4-H shooting sports designed as a fundraiser for the Shooting Sports Program. Although the contest was plagued by heavy rains, the contestants enjoyed the afternoon activities. Thanks to our many generous sponsors SCCD was able to offer prizes to the top three contestants, as well as top youth and female. Chan Perry came in 1st followed by Greg Lyons who took 2nd, while Maury Byrd scored a respectable 3rd. Top youth was Jantz Jenkins and top female went to Lynn Dees. The Suwannee County Conservation District wants to thank all of our gracious sponsors for their contributions to the Wildlife Field Day and Archery Tournament. Without the help of these sponsors, it event would not have been the success that it was. The sponsors were: Live Oak and Madison Farmers Cooperative Mayo Fertilizer R & R Tractor Part and Hunting Supplies Daddy's Gun Shop (Mayo) Drummond Bank (Mayo) Huffman and Gilmore Feed and Seed (Live Oak) Live Oak Tractor Gordon Ford Tractor (Live Oak) Dasher Farms (McAlpin) John's Feed Store (Live Oak) Southern Sportsman (Live Oak) Farm Credit of North Florida (Live Oak) Newton Crouch (Albany, Ga.)

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Odd Even U U new new Odd EvenU U new new North Florida OCTOBER 14 15,2009,PAGE 5 CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE WWW.NFLAONLINE.COM SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA 554083-F According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), exercise and physical activity are some of the best things older adults can do to stay healthy. Even moderate exercise can improve the health of those who are frail or who have agerelated diseases. Some seniors are concerned that physical activity or exercise may be too strenuous or may do them more harm than good. In fact, it's an inactive lifestyle that proves to do more harm than exercise does. Without physical activity, older people tend to grow weaker in four areas important for staying healthy and independent: strength, balance, flexibility, and endurance. The NIH maintains that: * Increasing strength and endurance make it easier to climb stairs and carry groceries. * Improving balance helps prevent falls. * Being more flexible may speed recovery from injuries. Exercising regularly can also have a positive impact on the immune system, blood pressure, cardiovascular system and it can decrease the risk of heart disease and help with depression or anxiety. The American Senior Fitness Association has some recommendations for those wanting to start a fitness program. * Get medical clearance to exercise. * Don't exercise if you are injured, sick, or running a temperature. * Always warm up and always cool down. * Drink plenty of water before, during and after exercise. * Avoid heavy meals for about two hours before energetic exercise. * If fatigue and/or discomfort last longer than one or two hours after exercising, cut back the next day but don't stop completely. Comfort ranges can change daily, so don't get discouraged if you can't do the same amount of exercise as you did the day before. * Concentrate on exercises that improve and maintain your range of motion, lubricate the joints and keep muscles flexible. Everyday activities will be easier to carry out and you'll have less pain, too. Stop exercise and consult your physician immediately if you experience any of the following: * chest pain or tightness in the chest, neck or throat * considerable difficulty breathing * abnormal heart rhythm; nausea' dizziness, light headedness, or visual interruption * excessive cold sweat * extreme or lasting weakness or fatigue For a good, overall exercise program, consider tai chi. Tai chi is a self-paced system of gentle physical exercise. It involves standing and performing a series of movements in a slow, graceful way. Each movement smoothly flows into the next. Studies suggest that tai chi may improve balance and knee joint stability, both of which help balance. Staying active does the body and the mind a world of good. Find exercise and activities that you enjoy and you'll be able to stick with it and improve your quality of life. Source: Family Features Gregory D.

According to band member Pateh Parsons, the group plays a variety of music from rock Ôn'roll to pop to rhythm and blues. He says that some have referred to their music as "Suwannee Rock Music." Born in Germany, Parsons immigrated with his family to Canada and grew up in Montreal. It was there that he got his first guitar at age 15 and shortly after, won a radio talent show with his first song "Don't Get Married." After serving in the Canadian army, he toured Canada for a while playing rock Ôn'roll before eventually settling on the Suwannee River in Florida in 1974. He has been a fixture in the Gainesville music scene ever since. His newest band, Progressive Madness, was formed in 2006. Lynda Stauffer joined on keyboards, and Native Cherokee Indian Randy Snow added bass and the sounds of his handcrafted Native American style flutes and drums. Afew months later, Alycin Hayes brought in special effects percussion and back-up vocals, and Ryan Allen contributed with drums, guitar, harmonica and background vocals. The final piece of the puzzle was when local guitar protŽgŽ Conor Galligan joined the band as their lead guitarist. In August 2009, the band announced the addition of its newest member, Chris Kenner, who plays the drums and sings background vocals. Over the past two years, the band has played at many popular local music clubs, as well as various festivals and charity events. The Downtown Plaza "Free Fridays" concerts run from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. every Friday night this year from May 1 through Oct. 30. The Bo Diddley Community Plaza is located on the corner of Southeast First Street and East University Avenue.

Is science really interesting enough to justify devoting a portion of one's weekend to it? If you have your doubts, then just ask the hundreds of area high school students who attended -and had a great time at -The Florida State University's "Saturday Morning Physics" programs last fall. Once again this year, Florida State's Department of Physics will host a number of Saturday-morning discussions and demonstrations throughout the fall. These are designed to show young people that, in addition to playing an important role in everyday life, physics can be downright fun. There is no charge for attending any or all of the programs, which run until Nov. 21, and registration is not required. "We try to show young people that the study of physics is important, it's fun, and it can be of great benefit to them in their future endeavors," said Volker Crede, an assistant professor of physics at Florida State who directs Saturday Morning Physics. "With Saturday Morning Physics, we show that it's possible to expand your horizons and enjoy yourself at the same time." There are other benefits as well: Many area high school juniors and seniors are able to receive extra credit in their science classes. And then there are the juice and doughnut breaks, provided free by the physics department. While Saturday Morning Physics is geared for high school students, anyone from the public is welcome, Crede said. "Parents and teachers in particular are encouraged to attend," he said. "Younger kids will enjoy the demonstrations as well. Aprior knowledge of'Saturday Morning Physics' Combining learning and laughter at FSU SEESATURDAY,PAGE11

Steven will be presenting images of and reflections on the Ichetucknee Springs and River that he has recently compiled into a book titled "Ichetucknee: Sacred Waters". It will be held on Thursday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Ft. White Community Center in Fort White, Florida. This free event open to the public is hosted by Save Our Suwannee, Inc. (a not for profit 501 (c) 3). There will be light refreshments provided afterward. Steven Earl first encountered the Ichetucknee River in 1983, when he first canoed its waters. Not long afterward he moved his family to a parcel of land adjacent to Ichetucknee State Park, where he was caretaker for a property that was riddled with karst windows, sinkholes, and other features indicating the intimate relationship of the landscape to the spring and river. He began working at the park, volunteering for the first ten years, finally getting a paid temporary position as a park ranger in 1994 and working there until '96 when he took a permanent positionat Goldhead State Park. During his time there he also worked with nonprofit environmental groups such as Friends of the River to advocate for stronger zoning regulations, and with the Ichetucknee Working Group to help document sinkholes and other conduits to the aquifer and spring system. During his twelve years living and working near the river, Steven photographed, painted, wrote poetry about, and came to love the river. That love shows in his book of photographs, art, and poetry recently published by the University Press of Florida. For more information please contact Joseph Prenger, SOS Board Member, at 352-246-3981. Photographer Steven Earl immortalized the Ichetucknee River in his work. Photo: SubmittedTALLAHASSEE The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Office of Greenways & Trails (OGT) invites residents and visitors to celebrate Florida's natural beauty this October during Greenways & Trails Month by enjoying a healthy outdoor activity at one of the state's more than 8,000 miles of land trails and 4,000 miles of paddling trails. During the 2008-2009 fiscal year, Florida's greenways and trails welcomed an unprecedented number of visitors, more than 3.5 million, underscoring the value of these attractions for Florida's recreation and tourism industries. "Greenways and trails not only offer nature-based recreation and alternative, energy-saving transportation routes, but also have far-reaching economic benefits," said Jena Brooks, Director of DEP's Office of Greenways & Trails. "With visitation numbers up nearly 600,000 from the previous fiscal year, Florida's awardwinning system of greenways and trails are increasingly attracting visitors from around the world that support the state's tourism industry." Recent visitation numbers also show that longer trails are becoming a popular part of the greenways and trails system. Though still in development, the 106-mile, OGT-managed Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail attracted 1.1 million visitors during the 2008-2009 fiscal year, an increase of nearly double the more than 637,000 visitors in the previous fiscal year. At the other end of the state, five counties have come together to create the 260-mile St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop through northeast-central Florida, to be completed in time for the 2013 celebration of the 500th anniversary of Spain's arrival in Florida. The potential of long-distance and loop trails to offer destination experiences, complete with the growth of supporting businesses, adds another dimension to the future of Florida's greenways and trails.

Florida has been named by American Trails as "Best Trails State in America," recognizing DEP's Office of Greenways & Trails for its vision andOctober is Greenways Trails MonthContinued From Page 11 GAINESVILLE The U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration Department of Health and Human Services has awarded more than $900,000 to the University of Florida College of Nursing to facilitate transition of its advanced practice nursing education program from the master's to the doctoral level. This strategic move will increase availability of primary health-care providers in underserved areas and help address the critical nursing faculty shortage. The Doctor of Nursing Practice degree, or DNP, is a national initiative led by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and reflects a significant change in nursing education. Universities have traditionally offered master's degrees to prepare nurses for advanced practice. "The DNPprepares advanced practice nurses with the knowledge, skills and abilities needed in today's and tomorrow's complex health-care environment, and provides advanced practice nurses with educational backgrounds comparable to health-care practitioners in other fields," said Susan Schaffer, Ph.D., A.R.N.P., a clinical associate professor and department chair who serves as the grant's program director. The college admitted post-master's students to the DNPprogram in 2006 and will become one of the first schools in Florida and nationally to enable students with a bachelor's degree in nursing to earn their DNPdegree. The three-year grant will support nurses with bachelor of science or master's degrees in nursing for admission to UF to enter adult acute care, adult, family and pediatric DNPnurse practitioner specialty tracks. Amajor emphasis of the program will be the education of culturally diverse and culturally competent nurse practitioners who will help address the nation's shortage of primary care providers, especially in rural and urban medically underserved areas. The need for primary care providers in Florida is severe. In 2008, 65 out of 67 counties were designated as primary health-care professional shortage areas. "The College of Nursing has always been committed to providing clinical experiences for students in rural and urban underserved areas and this grant will allow us to further expand that reach," Schaffer said. "By exposing our students to more diverse clinical experiences, we will be encouraging them to continue work in these areas after they graduate." From 2005 to 2007, between 27 percent and 49 percent of UF master's degree nursing students in their last semesters of study indicated they intended to work in medically underserved areas. In fall 2008, 63 percent of the college's post-master's DNPstudents reported that they intended to work with underserved clients after graduation. The grant will allow the college to place greater emphasis on cultural diversity and competence throughout the DNPcurriculum, increase clinical placement of students in public health units and in rural or urban underserved areas, and continue classroom discussion of ways in which nurse practitioners can address unmet health-care needs. Students also will explore employment opportunities in underserved areas. The grant also will address the critical nursing faculty shortage that is restricting enrollment in undergraduate and graduate nursing programs nationwide. Faculty retirements expected in the next decade will further fuel the serious nursing faculty shortage. DNPgraduates will be qualified for academic faculty positions and can serve as clinical preceptors for undergraduate and graduate nursing students. "I am very appreciative of the hard work of our faculty in obtaining this grant and grateful to the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration for recognizing that advanced practice nurses play in our health-care system and how the expansion of education for these nurses can improve care for patients," said Kathleen Ann Long, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N., dean of the UF College of Nursing. "Nursing is a vital part of our growing and changing health-care system, and highly educated advanced practice nurses, at the doctoral level, will be prepared to improve practice, educate new clinicians and elevate our profession."UF nursing school receives $900,000-plus to expand programSarah Carey UF News Service When Margarita, a 10year-old basset hound, was bitten by a cottonmouth snake recently, her quickthinking owner rushed the dog to the University of Florida's Veterinary Medical Center for treatment right away. In doing so, Sandra Fields Seymour, Ph.D., A.R.N.P., a recently retired associate professor in UF's College of Nursing, and her husband, Larry, of Ocala followed a cardinal rule in preventing death or lasting tissue damage from snake bite in an animal: They sought immediate evalua-Basset hound survives cottonmouth bites thanks to UF vetstion by a veterinarian. Margarita, whose owners have now nicknamed her "Snake Bite Warrior," survived her bites and today appears no worse for the wear. "It was an unfortunate situation where dog and snake were each doing what they were born to do, but with serious consequences for both," Seymour said. Margarita arrived at the UF VMC on July 3 around midnight with two strike wounds. Soon her signs of swelling, or envenomation, had greatly increased. "Margarita had obviously received enough venom to cause serious side effects," said Kate Ogawa, D.V.M., an intern in small animal medicine and surgery. Veterinarians quickly decided to administer antivenin six vials, in fact. "She also developed heart arrhythmias, which fortunately did not become severe enough to require treatment," Ogawa said. "We closely monitored Margarita's strike areas and swelling for signs of tissue death that would require surgery. She was lucky. Her wounds healed uneventfully, and she did not need further treatment." The side effects of snakebite can vary greatly depending on the particular snake, and the dose of venom the animal receives, veterinarians say. Bites from rattlesnakes, cottonmouths and copperheads can result in severe tissue swelling, blood-clotting abnormalities, heart arrhythmias, organ damage and tissue death around the bite site. Not all pets that are bitten by a venomous snake require antivenin, since occasionally pets will receive a dry bite, with no venom injected, but a prompt evaluation by a veterinarian is recommended. Hospitalization may also be needed for veterinarians to monitor for heart arrhythmias as well as to provide fluid support, pain medication and frequent reassessment. Although antivenin can be lifesaving, how much to give is a judgment call, since the amount of venom contained in a snake's bite is unknown. In general, however, the more antivenin received quickly, the better, veterinarians say. "Unfortunately, antivenin is quite expensive and can be cost prohibitive for some owners to administer several vials," Ogawa said. "Additionally, antivenin for veterinary medicine is currently not being manufactured in this country." Thanks to the efforts of UF snake envenomation expert Michael Schaer, D.V.M., UF was able to procure an antivenin product from Mexico. That particular product was manufactured for people, but UF was able to obtain permission for animal use from the Food and Drug Administration. Reactions to antivenin are possible also, which is another reason why victims of snakebite need to be monitored carefully for several days after the antivenin is administered. "I would urge people to protect themselves as much as possible from venomous snakes, and as such I cannot recommend killing the snake for identification," Ogawa said. "If the snake is already dead, bringing it in for positive identification can help, as some snakes have more potent venom than others. Dead snakes still can cause envenomation, so extreme care should be taken when moving the body. The antivenin contains antibodies against the venom of most snakes, so knowing exactly what snake it was is not nearly as important as getting treatment as soon as possible." leadership, which includes community assistance, land acquisition, public outreach and the management of eight state trails and the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway. The Greenway is Florida's longest green corridor stretching 110 miles from the St. Johns River near Palatka to the Gulf of Mexico near Inglis. Of the eight state trails, six are railtrails, which are railroad corridors converted to recreational trails for hiking, biking, skating, equestrian activities and alternative transportation.
