Notes

Abstract:
The Live Oak Suwannee Democrat is one of the oldest continuously published weeklies in the State of Florida. It began in 1884 in Live Oak, which at the turn of the century was the fifth largest city in Florida, preceded only by Jacksonville, Pensacola, Tampa, and Key West. The Suwannee Democrat enjoyed a corresponding reputation as a journalistic leader in the state. As its name suggests, the newspaper in its early days was affiliated with the Democratic Party. Its first editor hid under an assumed name when he was suspected of murder. A deathbed confession by the actual perpetrator allowed him to resume his true identity: F.R. McCormack, about whom, however, little else is known. From 1906 through 1907, the Suwannee Democrat was supplemented by the Live Oak Daily Democrat, edited by Charles W. Irwin. The rural character of early 20th-century Suwannee County, well known for its grist and lumber mills and poultry farms, is visible in the pages of the Suwannee Democrat. Indeed, over the years the newspaper has won numerous awards from the Florida Press Association for the quality of its agricultural reporting. Fires have taken their toll on the Suwannee Democrat. In 1906, a disgruntled printer left Live Oak by railroad on the night that the newspaper’s offices were burned to the ground. In October 1995, a fire destroyed a historic block of Live Oak’s downtown, and the newspaper’s office was one of the casualties. Lost in the fire were the last known issues of the Suwannee Democrat dating from 1897 through 1900.

Suwannee schools sanctioned


District doesn't
measure up
under No Child
Left Behind
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
carnell.hawthorne@gaflnews.com
After-school tutoring will
begin Jan. 19 as a special
measure following a sanction
placed on Suwannee County


district schools by the Florida
Department of Education for
failure to meet all the
requirements of the No Child
Left Behind Act, according to
an FDOE memo dated October
9, 2009.
Superintendent Jerry
Scarborough sent a letter home
to parents on Dec. 16 stating
that Suwannee County has only
met 67 percent of the criteria
set forth under the law.
The district was reprimanded


for the large number of
African-American and
economically disadvantaged
students at Suwannee
Elementary and Suwannee
Intermediate schools who did
not meet Adequate Yearly
Progress, said Lila Udell,
Director of Federal Programs.
"This is not to say that all
African-American students and
social-economically
disadvantaged students failed
to meet AYP, but these two


subgroups consist of the
majority of children who did
not make AYP," Udell said.
The state has determined that
the most appropriate action at
this time is to reduce
administrative funds by placing
a cap on the amount of indirect
cost that can be charged to the
Title I, Part A project for 2009-
2010, wrote Frances
Haithcock, chancellor of public
schools.
For Suwannee, this means


by feds

$13,002 will be taken from the
Title I, Part A administrative
fund and placed by DOE into
after-school programs
specifically to help the two
subgroups, Udell said.
Annually, the district
receives $1,642,000 through
Title I, Part A to fund various
programs and initiatives set
forth under No Child Left
Behind.

Wintry streak is worst in years


10 days of freezing
temps starting
to take their toll
By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com
A week and a half of frigid weather,


with temperatures often falling into the
teens, is beginning to take its toll on lo-
cal residents, crops and livestock.
Freeze warnings have been issued
nearly every night since New Year's
weekend, but the worst may soon be be-
hind us. The National Weather Service
says tomorrow night's low will be 37,
followed by 49 Friday.


Local farmers have suffered greatly during the ongoing cold snap. Damaged greens, seen
here at a local farm, and other crops such as lettuce and broccoli were in most cases de-
stroyed. Photo: Elena Toro

panied by rain, which often means a drop

together and discuss a book over a period of several
weeks.
"It's a great way to build relationships because the
kids are from all classes, from both grade levels,"
Boatright says.
Over the course of reading the books, the students
discuss the characters and plot as well as related themes.
Activities related to the books are also explored.
"And we have snacks at the end!" says Boatright.
The boys read Lawnboy by Gary Paulsen and learned
about the stock market and running a business through
the accidental summer job of a young boy.
"I thought the book was funny and cool," said
Arantez.
The girls read The True Confessions of Charlotte
Doyle by Avi and learned about sailing on the open sea
and the semi-charmed life of a young girl who is
accused of murder, brought to trial and found guilty.
"Charlotte was an amazing girl who really stood up to
the bad guys," said Jessica.
"[Assistant Principal] Bethany Mitidieri and I first
started talking about doing book clubs last year. Our


vision was to just
get kids talking
about books. We
had no idea how
popular it would
be or how much it Girls' Lunch Bunch. Courtesy photos
would grow," said
Boatright.
Much planning was done over the summer, but the
clubs were a little late getting started because some
promised funds weren't made available, said Boatright.
Through some creative spending of book fair profits and
borrowing from other schools, Boatright was able to
start the first club in October. There are plans for two
more clubs to start as soon as the money is made
available.
"I can't wait to start the Breakfast Club and the
Culture Club, but we'll have to wait for the grant money
to be released so I can buy multiple copies of all of the
books I want us to read," said Boatright. "I would like to
have five clubs running at one time ... one for each day
of the week!"
The next Boys' Lunch Bunch will be reading The
Young Man and the Sea by Rodman Philbrick.
"It's a young boy's incredible coming-of-age fishing
adventure. I can't wait for the boys to get to the 'FISH
ON!' part! It will take their breath away!" said
Boatright.

The Girls' Lunch Bunch will be reading Love that Dog
by Sharon Creech. "Although the protagonist is a boy,
the novel is written in verse, so the girls will appreciate
the poetic nature of the sweet story. We will also be
exploring different forms of poetry with this novel."
Boatright would like to thank principal Bill Yanossy,
assistant principal Bethany Mitidieri, and the teachers
for their support of the clubs as well as Jennifer
Campbell and Kim Jennings from Suwannee Middle
School, and Mrs. Georgia Chancey and the SIS cafeteria
staff for having lunches prepared each week in little "to-
go" trays.

talented young men and women to get out in front of
the camera and act out some lines with a little bit of
your own personality. For those who are selected
there will be community service points awarded in
addition to other incentive items. Anyone interested
can contact Steven Schneitman at 386-362-2121,
view our website and register at

Prevention & Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic health problem characterized by the
abnormal metabolism of sugar, or glucose. Insulin is an important
hormone that is responsible for moving glucose into body cells. Persons
affected by type 2 diabetes do not respond properly to body insulin, or
do not produce enough insulin. Common symptoms of the condition
include increased thirst, increased hunger, and unexplained weight loss.
Fatigue and blurred vision also may occur. Those who are overweight or
are inactive are at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Weight loss and increase in physical activity are recommended for the
prevention of type 2 diabetes. A low carbohydrate or low-fat calorie-
restricted diet may be recommended. Metformin (' is
commonly prescribed for persons with this type of diabetes. This
medication decreases the production of glucose by the liver.
Sulfonylurea medications, such as glipizide (Glucotrol), increase the
production of insulin. Dipeptidyl-peptidase 4 (DPP-4) inhibitor
medications, such as sitagliptan (Januvia), also increase the production
of insulin. It is recommended that persons with type 2 diabetes should
also receive the pneumococcal vaccine and the influenza vaccine each
year.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: Can a tooth crack?
A: Though tooth enamel is the hardest
substance in the human body, and teeth
do pretty tough work, a tooth is
absolutely capable of cracking. A crack
can develop suddenly For instance, let's
say you chew on a popcorn kernel, a
pencil, an ice cube, a hard candy-any
of a number of really hard objects --if
you hit at the right angle, you could
crack a tooth. Also, teeth are under


tremendous pressure, given their roles
as food processors and the grinding you
may put them through. Over time, they
can weaken and crack even without
chewing on any of the hard objects
mentioned above. In fact, if you have a
tooth that is overly sensitive to hot and
cold, it may be cracked.
Cracks can vary in length. If a crack is
all above the gum line, a piece of tooth
may break off. The dentist then may be
able to treat it with a crown or a filling. If
the crack extends down into the root,
the dentist may recommend a root
canal or perodontal surgery. Generally
there is not guarantee, regardless of the
work that is done, that a cracked tooth
can ultimately be saved. Talk with your
dentist about ways to avoid cracking a
tooth.

Gillette's Citgo

A good place to go for repairs
Gillette's Citgo has been around for 10 years
now. Ask anyone in town, they will tell you it's on
US 90, three blocks east of US 129. Bobby Gillette
has established a good reputation as a mechanic
here in Live Oak.
"He has a great memory when it comes to cars,"
one customer said. "If you tell Bobby the year and
make of your car, he'll tell you off the top of his
head what known issues that vehicle has and what
it's strong points are. I think he really enjoys what
he does."
Bobby Gillette is an ASE certified mechanic for
all makes, foreign and domestic. He does minor and
major repairs on A/C and heating systems, starters,
alternators, custom exhaust, engine swapping and
he sells just about any brand of tire you can think
of.
When asked why he felt his business has earned
such a good reputation in Live Oak over the last 10
years, Bobby's response was, "We do cost effective
repairs. I believe my customers come here because
they know they're not going to have to buy a lot of
other parts to get to the root of the problem."
Gillette's Citgo is open Monday through Friday
from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLER

On being a

squeaky wheel
By Jim Holmes
It is late at night and you are driving on one of our
local roads when you spot a toddler walking alone
on the highway. What would you do? I think the
overwhelming majority of us would stop our car or
pickup, jump out and care for the child until we
knew he or she was in safe hands. If that would be
your inclination, then you have the opportunity this
month to step forward and help such kids.
No, they are not wandering along some highway
in the middle of the night, but their odyssey is no
less dangerous or frightening. You see, the kids I'm
talking about are youngsters who for one reason or
another are wards of the state because their parents
are charged with abuse or neglect. In the seven
counties that make up the Third Judicial Circuit,
these kids can number in the hundreds.
Their parents have attorneys who are legally
bound to fight tooth and nail for their clients. Like-
wise, the state has a cadre of skilled lawyers work-
ing for the Florida Department of Children and
Families. And the kids are all assigned caseworkers,
who are under contract to DCF But each of those
parties brings to the table their own agenda ... and
for various reasons, that agenda doesn't always
know about or place the interests of the child
FIRST.
That's where your help is needed. You can be-
come a Guardian ad Litem volunteer and in so do-
ing, ensure that the needs and wishes of the children
you represent are presented directly to the judge
handling their case.
My wife and I have been Guardian ad Litem vol-
unteers for the better part of a decade and often we
have people say to us, "I just don't know how you
can do it!" Our answer is simple. "Someone has to
try to help these kids. If not us, then who?"
I won't lie to you. Being a Guardian can be frus-
trating, but then worthwhile endeavors are seldom
easy. Sometimes you encounter parents incapable
of raising a child due to psychological issues. Oth-
ers have personal demons to overcome themselves
- like drug abuse, alcoholism or their own history
of being abused or neglected before they can
again be entrusted to care for their kids.
Then there is the system itself, filled with time-
consuming legal complexities. And all too often it
is overburdened and underfunded, resulting in a
constant change of staff, particularly among those
caseworkers directly responsible for knowing and
meeting a youngster's needs. It's not uncommon to
see a child have several different caseworkers in the
months and sometimes years it takes to either
reunite a kid with his or her parents or to try to find
the youngster a new family.
But these problems SHOULD NOT BE THE
CHILDREN'S BURDEN ... and your job as a
Guardian ad Litem volunteer will be to insure that
they are not. I call it being the court's "squeaky
wheel," for I speak up whenever I believe the needs
or desires of a child are being overlooked or ne-
glected due to bureaucratic red tape, staff overload,
budget restraints, legal-maneuvering and, at times,
incompetence.
Guardian ad Litem volunteer training sessions are
now being scheduled for later this month through-
out the Third Judicial Circuit. They are free. You
can get more information by calling the Guardian
office in Live Oak at 386-364-7720, extension 103.
Please, give it serious thought. It is the most
worthwhile job for which you will never be paid.

BY JERRY SCARBOROUGH
Suwannee County
Superintendent of Schools


This month we would like to report
on the following topics of interest:
1. Dropout Rate
Florida Department of Education (DOE) released the
dropout rates for 2008-09. Our local dropout rate fell from
6.87 percent in 2007-08 to 3.4 percent for 2008-09. In
comparison, the state dropout rate was 2.3 percent.
As you can see, we made significant progress, but we
must continue our efforts to work with our community,
parents, and staff to enable every student to graduate from
high school.
2. Race to the Top (RTTT)
The state of Florida is applying for a federal grant in the
amount of $700 million to provide additional funds to im-
prove Florida's education of its' students. In recent weeks,
we have been in discussions with DOE, our School Board,
and our Union representatives to determine if it is in the
best interest of Suwannee County students to receive
RTTT funds.
According to DOE estimates, Suwannee County would
receive approximately $250,000 each year, for four years,
to enhance education in our school system. However, as
with most federal grants, there will be additional mandates
that might not be in the best interest of our school system.
We will make a recommendation to our School Board at
their special meeting on January 12, 2010, to sign a Mem-
orandum of Understanding with DOE which will allow us
to participate in the process to determine whether RTTT
funds will be a plus for our students.
3. Religious policy
At our School Board meeting held on December 22,
2009, several parents expressed concern on how religious
activities play a part in our school system. Most of you are


aware that in recent years our federal courts established
guidelines on how the expression of religious beliefs is to
be administered in our schools.
There was a consensus of the School Board that we
should develop a policy that will provide guidelines on
how students will be able to express their religious beliefs
within our schools. Our School Board is in the process of
drafting this policy.
4. Culinary Arts
The Culinary Arts program for high school and adult
students has returned to Suwannee-Hamilton Technical
Center (SHTC). The program is designed to give students
a strong foundation and sense of direction in culinary ca-
reers.
The new chef is Chris Macarages, a Lake City native.
He graduated with an A.S. degree in Culinary from Le
Cordon Bleu Orlando Culinary Academy. Chris has
worked at the Disney World Boardwalk Resort and other
quality restaurants.
The Bon Appetite Caf6, at SHTC, has reopened for
Tuesday lunch. The program is also available for banquets
and special occasions. Reservations can be made by call-
ing 386-647-4203.
5. Thanks for...
Freedom to express our religious beliefs
Our community which supports education
Role models
Positive attitudes
Your comments and suggestions are needed on how we,
as a school district, can better serve our parents and stu-
dents. Please feel free to contact me. I can be reached at

'Bits & Pieces'

from south

Suwannee County
By Ana Smith
Editor's note: Publication of this edition of Bits &
Pieces was delayed from last week due to South
County Year in Review i... 1,1.. Ana's latest column
will appear Friday.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone! My prayer is
that 2010 brings us all good news, and better times. I
don't know if people make New Year resolutions any
more. I stopped doing that years ago, but I do set
myself new goals. One is taking better care of my
health, by which I mean to keep losing weight and
stop over-extending myself in the projects I get in-
volved in. Another is to do a better job keeping in
touch with family and friends, something that is so
easy to neglect. And this year I am going to take
some of those trips I had to cancel last year for vari-
ous reasons. No big goals, but some that I am look-
ing forward to carrying out!
Aren't you glad our winter doesn't last very long?
As many frigid mornings as we've had this week, I'm
thankful I didn't suffer any broken water pipes this
past week. I lost some of my plants, and my outdoor
pets would be waiting at the back door as soon as it
started to get dark and the temperatures had dropped
significantly so they could come into the warmth of
the laundry room, but we managed to stay comfort-
able. Most of my extended family up north are
trudging through lots of snow, so the top of my
"thankful list" is knowing this cold weather will soon
be gone!
I want to thank everyone who works with me on
our prayer chain at O'Brien Baptist Church. We num-
ber about 41 wonderful Prayer Warriors who care
about our community, and it is such a blessing to see

our prayers answered in
such beautiful ways.
And it's a comfort to
know that, despite the
many ways the devil
tries to eliminate Christ
from our lives, God lets
us all know that He is
still in control, if we will
only call on Him every
day. I pray that we, as a
nation, will realize that
soon and return to trust-
ing Him to heal this
country before things get
any worse.
Last Saturday, Jan. 9,
O'Brien Baptist Church
held its monthly fellow-
ship supper, and it was
certainly a fun night. It
was our annual "White
Elephant Supper," and as
usual, Brother George
had something cooked
up to share all the "spe-
cial" items everyone
brought. If you want to
share a good time of fel-
lowship, as well as enjoy
some great food, come
join us for our monthly
Saturday fellowship sup-
pers, which start at 6
p.m., and are usually on
the first Saturday of the
month. Bring a covered
dish to share. I can
promise you some laughs
and a good time. Every-
one is welcome! Call
the church office at 935-
1503 for the next supper.
See you there!


This past Tuesday, Jan.
12, OBC held its month-
ly "Sonshiners" lunch.
It's a time when senior
citizens gather together
in fellowship and to
share lunch. They meet
in the fellowship hall at
11 a.m., one month to
share a potluck meal, an-
other month to go on a
little trip to one of the
restaurants in the area.
You don't have to be a
member of OBC (that's
O'Brien Baptist Church)
to be part of this group,
so come and meet your
neighbors. If you're new
to our area, this is a
great way to meet new
friends and probably
some of your neighbors.
I am still involved with
a friend rescuing cats and
kittens, and we have quite
a few that are ready to go
to loving homes. If you
are interested in finding a
new pet, please give me a
call. There are some
posters to view some of
our feline friends at the
O'Brien Feed Depot, S &
S store, Scaffs, and a cou-
ple of other businesses in
the Branford area. We do
this because we love
these animals, and want
them to have a chance for
a happy life. These ani-
mals have had a rough
start in life, and we hope
to be instrumental in
placing them in good
"forever" homes. There


is no charge for them, but
we do our best to make
sure their new owners
will be responsible, give
them good care, and if
they have not yet been
spayed or neutered, that
they will have those pro-
cedures done when the
kitty is old enough. We
are just a few folks who
want to help make a dif-
ference in the lives of
these cats and kittens, and
hope you feel the same
way.
From "Humorous Quo-
tations":
"The secret to staying
young is to live honestly,
eat slowly, and lie about
your age."
"Worry is like a rock-
ing chair; both give you
something to do, but nei-
ther gets you anywhere."
"I'm not into the idea of
working out ... my philos-
ophy is not 'no pain, no
gain,' but rather 'no pain,
no pain'."
"You'll never plow a
field by turning it over in
your mind."
"The bitterest words are
those we are forced to
eat."
"Even the woodpecker
owes his success to the
fact that he uses his head
and keeps pecking away
until he finishes the job
he starts."
Keep warm, keep pray-
ing, and keep an open
mind. God bless!


New starting time for camera club meetings


The Branford Camera Club
will meet at the Branford
Public Library on Thursday,
Jan. 21. Remember, our new
starting time is 7 p.m. This
month's program will be on
"Camera Basics," the first of
three workshops designed to
get 2010 off to a quick "pho-
tographic" start! February's
program will cover basic
composition and the March
program will introduce par-
ticipants to three areas of spe-
cialty photography: portrait,
nature, and pet/animal pho-
tos. Members can request
mentors for other areas of
specialty photography such as
kids, architecture, etc.
"Camera Basics" will show
you how to immediately set
up your camera and start tak-
ing pictures. Dick Madden, a
local retired professional pho-
tographer, will introduce the
program with a brief presen-
tation to acquaint you with
how a camera works, includ-
ing an overview of how to do
the initial setup. Other Cam-
era Club members will then
help each of you become fa-


miliar (or more familiar) with
your own camera. Bring your
camera and instruction manu-
al with you!
The Branford Camera Club
is open to all area residents.
Our membership includes
folks with a range of experi-
ence, film or digital, from
novice to professional. There
are no membership dues; only
an interest in photography is
required. The group meets at
the Branford Public Library
on the third Thursday of each
month, with two exceptions.
We have no meeting in Au-
gust, and our December meet-
ing is held on the second
Thursday to accommodate
the busy holiday season.

remediation is scheduled
Monday, Tuesday and
Thursday from 4 p.m. to 5

"It's our goal for all
students to make AYP at
every school site,"
Scarborough said. "To do
this it's going to require
effort from all our parents,
faculty, and community to
develop a relationship with
our students so they will
have the opportunity to be

reports, Williams lured the
homeowner away from his
home, which gave the
three time to travel to the
residence, kick the door
down and steal several
guns.
Harper said Thursday,
"money" was the motive
for the crime. He and the
two others had devised a
scheme "to sell the guns
and split the money three
ways," he told Bryan.
As part of his plea,
Harper agreed to testify
against one of his co-
defendants. Harper also
agreed to serve the first
two years of his probation
on house arrest, has
committed to 1,000 hours
of community service -

perform seven job
searches per week until
employment is found and
must adhere to a 9 p.m. to
7 a.m. curfew. Harper is

court fees.
Stephen Roger Trahan,
17 (no photo available),
pleaded guilty Thursday
and as part of a plea deal
has agreed to serve seven
years probation on
charges of burglary to a
dwelling and five years
probation for grand theft
from a dwelling to run
concurrently. Trahan has
already served jail time
for the charge of trespass
after warning: notice
against entering, and petit
theft.
Trahan agreed to serve
his first two years of
probation on house arrest.
He must perform 30 hours
of community service
work until he finds
employment and must
perform seven job searches
per week until employed
full-time. In addition
Trahan agreed to a curfew
of 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. and
must pay over 2, 400 in
court cost and fees.
Laverne Riley, 57, of
Live Oak, pleaded guilty
Thursday and accepted a
plea deal to carry out three
years drug offender
probation for possession of
cocaine and one year for


resisting an officer without
violence to be served
concurrently. Riley has
agreed to undergo out
patient substance abuse
evaluation and treatment,
his license has been
suspended for two years
and must maintain full-
time work or submit seven
job searches per week. For
the first year of his
probation, Riley must
adhere to a 9 p.m. to 7 a.m.
curfew and must pay over
$1,400 in court cost and
fees.
Lawrence Troy Tyre, 23,
of Live Oak, signed a plea
to withhold adjudication of
guilt and agreed Thursday
to serve three years drug
offender probation for
possession of a controlled
substance and one year
probation for possession of
drug paraphernalia, each to
run concurrent. Tyre must
undergo out patient
substance abuse evaluation
and treatment, maintain
full-time work or perform
seven job searches per
week. He agreed to adhere
to a 9 p.m. to 7 a.m.
curfew and must pay over
$1400 in court cost and
fees.


Jo Ann Alger, 53, of
Live Oak, also signed a
plea to withhold
adjudication of guilt and
must serve three years
drug offender probation for
possession of a controlled
substance. Alger must
undergo out patient
substance abuse evaluation
and treatment, and agreed
to pay over $1,000 in court
cost and fees.
Michael Anthony Allen,
43, of Live Oak, pleaded
guilty Thursday and must
serve five years probation
for forgery and five years
probation for uttering a
forgery concurrently. Allen
received jail credit on a
charge of petit theft and
has agreed to pay over
$1,000 in courts cost and
fees and $69.52 in
restitution.
Peter Perry Baker Jr., 51,

the plea, Baker's license
has been suspended for
two years and he must pay
over $1,000 in court cost
and fees.


Dowling Park VFD may come under control of county


Continued From Page 1A

volunteer firefighters,
approved a request by
Public Safety Director
Charlie Conner Thursday
night to allow the county
to take over funding and
operation of the facility.
ACV Vice President of
Village Properties Jim
Schenck and Conner, along
with Village President
Craig Carter, have been
working together for about
a year to bring the station
under the county's
umbrella.
"It's become apparent to
us that a closer


coordination and operation
under the same operation
process that the county
does would benefit the
village," said Schenck.
Conner had approached
county commissioners
Tuesday morning to seek
their approval but was met
with questions and
concerns. Commissioner
Ivie Fowler suggested
Conner approach the Fire
Governing Board.
"They're going to be a
part of it and it all needs to
be in writing to be
approved by this board,"
Fowler told Conner.
Fowler, in whose district


the station lies, said his
hope is to one day have a
paid fire station instead of
a volunteer outfit in
Dowling Park.
He said it is
irresponsible not to have
adequate coverage for that
area.
Jesse Caruthers was
worried about the cost.
"I agree with the
concepts," said Caruthers.
"But I'm kind of
concerned about pulling
more funds. But I know
that we need coverage in
that zone out there."
Commission Chairman
Wesley Wainwright agreed
and added, "We're also
going to take over
maintenance and
insurance."
The village volunteer
department consists of one
fire fighting vehicle and
about eight certified
firefighter I volunteers.
Conner said that is not
enough to protect the
residents of the Village and
surrounding area.


"Those folks out there
right now have absolutely
nothing and I don't see
why we're sitting here as
intelligent people and
continue that," Conner told
commissioners. "I hope the
board has faith in me to be
prudent in ... taking on this
venture."
Schenck said the Village,
which will continue to pay
all utility bills on the
facility, will lease the
building to the county for
one dollar a year.
Fire Governing Board
members will attend the
Jan. 19 county
commission meeting in
support of the move. They
will also appeal to
commissioners to better
fund the volunteer stations
so they can comply with
state standards.
Complying with those
standards can benefit
residents of the county by
helping lower home
insurance premiums. That
meeting starts at 4 p.m. at
Live Oak City Hall.

Local employers and unemployed get
some relief with 'Back to Work' program


Local employers do not
have to wait to hire work-
ers. Newly created jobs
and employment of eligible
jobseekers may qualify
businesses for sorely need-
ed assistance in meeting
payroll. Florida Back to
Work will reimburse eligi-
ble new employees' wages.
This program can be ac-
cessed locally through
Workforce who is partner-
ing with Agency for Work-
force Innovation (AWI),
the Florida Department of
Children and Families
(DCF), and Workforce
Florida, Inc (WFI). Private,


non-profit and governmen-
tal employers are all eligi-
ble for this program. By
taking advantage of Back
to Work, employers can in-
crease their staff without a
significant increase in cost;
put local residents back to
work and money back into
our local economy.
Workforce assists job-
seekers and employers in
Suwannee, Hamilton, Jef-
ferson, Lafayette, Madison
and Taylor counties.
Guidelines for this pro-
gram are available on
AWI's Web site
(www.floridajobs.org/work


force/backtowork/) or by
calling the Workforce of-
fice at 866-212-9618 or
973-2672. Employers with
one job opening or several
job openings are encour-
aged to apply. Subsidized
positions may be funded
through September 30th,
2010. The subsidized posi-
tion must be a permanent
job and the employer must
have the intention of re-
taining employees with a
satisfactory job perfor-
mance. Workforce would
like to receive employer
requests prior to January
14th, 2010.

Troy receiver

By Drew Champlin
Dothan Eagle

TROY Patrick Cher-
ry saved his best for last.
The Troy receiver had
far and away his best sea-
son as a senior, and his
best game was his final
one at Movie Gallery Vet-
erans Stadium, where he
had a career-high 78 yards
receiving on four catches
with a 19-yard touchdown
reception in a 47-21 win
over Florida Atlantic.
"That was pretty much
my biggest game," Cherry
said.
Obviously. The Live
Oak, Fla., native played as
a true freshman in 2006,
but mostly on special
teams and didn't record a
catch. He had three catch-
es for 42 yards includ-
ing a 26-yard catch at
highly-ranked Georgia, as
a sophomore in 2007 and
eight catches for 80 yards
last season.

Tundra is usually
described as a biome /
with a lack of trees
and a short growing
season. There will be no
tundra, never mind frozen
tundra, this year. The
NFL playoffs are
underway and unless
Baltimore or the Jets pull
off a major upset it will
be a warm playoff season.
The only frozen tundra
may be the parking area
outside the Metrodome.
The Vikings, Saints and
Colts all play indoors.
Things aren't much
different in Dallas and
Arizona. San Diego is
always nice. The weather
will not be a factor, unless
your fan base needs a
plow to get to the game.
Weather used to be an
integral part of the
championship games. The


players actually
shoveled the field in
Philadelphia a half-
Scentury ago. There
was of course the
famous Giants
sneaker game where
the trainer went out at
halftime and bought the
team sneakers so they
could navigate some
frozen grass and mud.
The Polo Grounds had a
lot of things but tundra
wasn't one of them.
The Giants lost
championship games in
1961, 1962 and 1963 in
Green Bay, New York and
Chicago. The combined
temperatures of the three
might approach freezing.
Back then there was no
such thing as wind chill,

the fans sitting in the
cheap seats. Remember

Troy receiver saving

best for last
Continued From Page 1B
His first career touchdown came on a 7-
yard pass reception at LSU last year, one
that was set up by his 12-yard reception.
This year, he was able to come into his own
as a backup at the H-receiver and Y-receiver
spots.
He caught 20 passes for 260 yards, both
numbers that eclipsed his total from his first
three years. He's sure to play a big role in
the Jan. 6 GMAC Bowl for the Trojans (9-3)
against Central Michigan (11-2).
"He's made a lot of plays," Troy head
coach Larry Blakeney said. "We've tried to
get certain people in at certain times and
sometimes we'd say somebody else was
supposed to be out there, but it was Cherry
and he'd make a big catch, maybe one down
the middle or a one-handed catch."
Cherry actually signed with Troy in 2005,
but delayed enrollment until the spring of
2006. That helped him graduate before this
season with a degree in criminal justice.
Cherry began work in a master's degree in
that field this fall.
"He's been a real pleasure," Blakeney
said. "We probably didn't expect him to be
a great player, but he's fulfilled all the ex-
pectations we would have had for him and
even more.
"No. 1, he's a student that has already
graduated.
No. 2, he's a good citizen and No. 3, he's
made plays."
Cherry filled his role perfectly. While Jer-
rel Jernigan and TeBiarus Gill stepped up as
the go-to guys, players like Cherry, Zack
Marcum, Cornelius Williams and others be-
came clutch possession receivers.
"We've got a lot of receivers that can
make big plays right along with them,"
Cherry said.
Cherry said he wasn't sure what he'd do
in continuing his education once football is
over. He said he'd either stay in criminal
justice, go to law school or look into coach-
ing.
But while his career hasn't been filled
with the highlight-reel plays, there's nothing
he'd go back and change.
"I'm happy with the way things have
gone," Cherry said. "Every year since I've
been here, we've been winning champi-
onships, so I feel like I've had a real suc-
cessful career here at Troy."

89-year-old wins the Christmas Parade


By Delores Kilpatrick
On a three-wheel yellow Ace Scooter, Shirley Baum,
at 89 years of age, goes varooming around Advent
Christian Village. Dressed all in lavender, Shirley is a
Village icon.
So, it's no surprise that Shirley put a lavender
Christmas tree on the back of her scooter and with
Santa in a sleigh taped to her helmet, rode to first place
in the Christmas Parade.
Shirley's free-wheeling derring-do led her to get her
pilot's license at the age of 64. The tradition is to cut
off the shirttail when a pilot solos. She has a picture of
the shirttail with her instructor's name to prove it.
"I never did anything the ordinary way," Shirley
muses. "I was even delivered by my father when a
snowstorm prevented the doctor from coming."
Shirley's mother died from pneumonia. So, at 13,
Shirley says, "I raised my Dad." She became the
homemaker. When her father remarried, Shirley tutored
his stepson.
When her father was having some work done on the
house, Shirley looked down into the hole and saw
George Baum, her future husband, hooking up the
plumbing.
She became a telephone operator at 18 and finding
herself with a four-day vacation, decided to elope with
George. Their friends went with them to Hannibal, Mo.
where they stayed in Becky Thatcher's house. The next
morning they found a clerk of the court and with
marriage license in hand, found a Baptist preacher. As
they were leaving town, their friends asked themselves,
"Why didn't we get married, too?"
So they looked up the clerk and got the license and
when they went to the church, the preacher was still
there and asked if they had forgotten anything. The
other couple explained and were soon wed. They
honeymooned in two little cabins.
The marriage lasted 41 years and produced four
children and seven grandchildren and six greats.
When George died in 1983, Shirley went with the
Wycliffe Translators in Waxhaw, N.C. serving as a
secretary for 25 years. She sent five years working in
the Philippines.
On a mission to take supplies to missionaries in the
jungle, Shirley offered to help the pilot drop the boxes.
The door had been taken off before leaving the ground
and Shirley was doing fine until her seat belt came
loose. She hung on for dear life and finished the job. As
she was drawing a deep breath and thanking God for
taking care of her, the pilot excitedly pointed out the
plane's shadow on the clouds surrounded by a halo.
This is a phenomenon that pilots call "into the glory."
Shirley thought it was a more personal sign that God
had protected her from falling out with the boxes.
Boxes of eggs were safely delivered by parachutes.
Often Shirley baked oatmeal cookies that were
dropped, delighting the missionaries who were far from
civilization.
Shirley's best friend, Lorelee Chamberlin, persuaded
her to come look over Advent Christian Village and
when she did, she moved here. Shirley is very active in
water aerobics and working at Twice Nice. She also
calls bingo at Dacier Manor. She answers the phone
with, "This is the Baum Shelter."
So, if you're visiting the Village, be on your guard
for a lavender streak it could be Shirley Baum.

TOPS weight-loss


support available locally

TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) is an effective
weight-loss solution that yields real results. With the
average waistline of North Americans growing at the
same time prices continue to rise, people are looking for
cost effective weight-loss support that works. That annual
TOPS membership fee is only $26 making TOPS one of
the most affordable options available. Monthly dues are
$5.
Visitors are welcome to attend their first TOPS meeting
free of charge. TOPS FL. 798 Live Oak meets at 9 a.m.
on Wednesday at Live Oak Community Church of God
10639 US 129 South.
During weekly chapter meetings members men,
women, and children ages 7 and up learn about
nutrition, how to incorporate exercise into their day, and
receive ongoing support as they work to reach their
weight-loss goals. TOPS Club, Inc. members lost a total
of 951,902 pounds 476 tons! "TOPS has been the most
affordable weight-loss solution for 60 years." "The
numbers prove that losing weight doesn't have to cost a
lot to be successful."
"TOPS' philosophy is that the best way to lose and
maintain a healthy weight is through education,
encouragement and consistent support from others.
Because TOPS doesn't dictate how members should eat,
they're free to consult with their doctor, a nutritionist, or
another health professional to design the best plan for
them. Additionally, TOPS encourages members to
schedule at least 30 minutes of exercise walking, biking,
swimming most days of the week for optimum health.

don't beat yourself up if
you have a bad day.
Reward yourself for
meeting goals.

Find someone to be your
cheerleader and help
support you in your efforts.
They may not have to have
the same resolution as you
do but it helps to have a
little support.


Cut back but do not
cut out
Often times diets that
eliminate foods or food
groups do not end very
successfully. Simply try
cutting back on your
portion sizes and the
amount of sweetened
drinks you consume each
day. If you need a little
help with meal planning,
visit www.mypyramid.gov
and enter what foods you


have eaten for a typical
couple of days. This free
service will give you a
report on how you can
improve your diet.
Get moving
Try to increase the
amount of movement you
do each day. If you do not
like exercise, don't think of
it that way. Park further

co-worker something

Club holds


Christmas party


By Jeanne Fannin
After a short meeting, food was
served from everyone bringing
their favorite dish which was
enjoyed by all.
We also had entertainment by
our locals in the 500 Club, on the
Dulcimers. They are called
"Suwannee Strummers." Talk


about beautiful music! Then we
exchanged gifts and all were
happy with what we received.
Time to go home and our
hostess Esther Farro was still in a
good mood as she was cleaning
up after all of us. Thank you
Esther. A Merry Christmas and
Happy New Year to all from the
Suwannee Valley 500 bowlers.


On dulcimers: Lorrie Geiger, Allison Duke and AJA Suit.

Santa Pup visits Surrey Place


Odell Fortner and Paquito Fannin.
By Jeanne Fannin
Residents at Surrey Place had a wonderful surprise
on Dec. 16. Santa Pup, otherwise known as Paquito
Fannin, brought smiles and even squeals of happiness
as residents held and petted her.
Some also told stories of their own pets to her, and
Paquito listened to them all and smiled. Paquito
eventually had to go but promised to visit them again
soon.

'In the days of Robin Hood'


24th annual Hoggetowne

Medieval Faire coming

to Alachua County

GAINESVILLE Come be swept away by medieval
magic and transported into the Middle Ages during the
last weekend in January and first weekend in February,
Jan. 30-31 and Feb. 5-7, at the Alachua County Fair-
grounds. Celebrate the 24th annual Hoggetowne Me-
dieval Faire while the blasts of trumpets blend with the
laughter of children as the kingdom of Hoggetowne
opens its gates.
The theme for the 2010 Faire is "In the Days of Robin
Hood." On the streets of Hoggetowne, you will meet
King John, Queen Isabelle, and Robin Hood and his Mer-
ry Men. Throughout the weekend the revelry will capti-
vate visitors, and the street characters will help make
everyone a part of the Faire by including them in their
witty wisecracks and charming them in a medieval style.
The bustling medieval marketplace will showcase more
than 160 talented artisans and craftspeople from all over
the countryside who arrive at Hoggetowne to display and
sell a variety of goods, trinkets and wares. Visitors will
find one-of-a-kind blacksmithing, pewter, jewelry, stone


carvings, wood-carving, weaving, hand-blown glassware,
leatherworking and much more. A variety of new ven-
dors will represent talents never seen before at the
Hoggetowne Medieval Faire.
Throughout the streets of Hoggetowne the sounds of
applause and laughter will draw you into one of the nine
stages where the forgotten skills of full flight falconry,
gripping aerial acrobatics and astonishing magic acts are
brought back to life. Jugglers, musicians, and dancers fill
the streets and stages with ancient music and thrilling
performances. Full-armored knights battle one another on
horseback for the honor of the King and Queen. Robin
Hood and his Merry Men match wits with the Sheriff of


Nottingham in a game of chess with human players. The
Hoggetowne Medieval Faire is one of Gainesville's most
beloved traditions.
Prepare to feast on hearty food and drink fit for a king!
Beyond the marketplace is the food court, where tempt-
ing aromas entice fairgoers. Tasty bloomin' onions,
fresh-baked pastries, sweet potato fries, giant turkey legs
and succulent ribs are just a sample of what's in store.
The Faire is the perfect place to bring even the
youngest members of the kingdom. Children delight in
visiting the royal pavilion, where they will become lords

QUINCY Come and see ten of our region's most tal-
ented and innovative artists, many with compelling mes-
sages, expressed on a large scale through striking works
of art. Diversity & Virtuosity: FAMU Faculty exhibition
opens Friday in the Sara May Love Gallery at the Gads-
den Arts Center, and runs Jan. 15-March 14. Artist Harris
Wiltsher, chair of the FAMU Art Department and Direc-
tor of the Foster-Tanner Gallery, will give a gallery talk
at 6:30 p.m.
The exhibition represents current and retired faculty of
the Florida A & M University School of Architecture and
the Visual Arts Department exhibit work in all mediums
including printmaking, photography, quilting, sculpture,
and oil painting. Exhibiting artists include Kenneth
Falana, Valerie S. Goodwin, Deborah LaGrasse, Liu Nan,
Joe Roache, Omar Thompson, Edward (Tim) White,
Chester Williams, Harris R. Wiltsher, and Ron Yradebra.
Opening at the same time in the Zoe Gollowat Gallery
is Figure Drawing: Classical Beauty. Artists Bill Thomp-
son, Ron Yrabedra, John H. Woodworth, B. Harper Frost,
and Barbara Harrison focus this exhibition on the artistic
tradition of the visual exploration of the human form.
Mostly drawings and watercolor on paper, these images
reveal the age-old practice of honoring the human body
by expressing emotions like confidence, insecurity, and
love.
On opening night, enjoy the Quincy Main Street Music
Festival with live music by Mixture, second floor, Gads-

UF surgeons use robot to



shave time off procedures


By Czerne M. Reid

University of Florida urologists have used
robot-assisted surgery to cut about 20 min-
utes off average surgery time for conven-
tional vasectomy reversal using a micro-
scope. Sperm count after surgery is compa-
rable over a year for the two procedures, but
the robotic procedure appears to result in a
quicker return of sperm count.
"For a couple that's trying to get pregnant,
this is a big deal," said Sijo Parekattil, M.D.,
director of male infertility and microsurgery
at UF, who led the study.
The findings, now online and to appear in
an upcoming print edition of the Journal of
Endourology, represent the first head-to-
head comparison of robot-assisted vasecto-
my reversal and the microscope procedure
that is widely used.


Many types of surgery are now being aid-
ed by robots, and surgeons continue to ex-
plore new areas in which they can be used.
"This is state-of-the-art stuff, it's cutting-
edge, and a stepping stone to understanding
whether or not we can use this tclihnl *II -',-
on a more widespread basis," said Wayne
Kuang, M.D., director of Male Reproductive
Health at University of New Mexico, who
was not involved in the study. "It's a natural
progression from back in the days when we
just had magnified eyeglasses."
But robotic vasectomy reversal is not
without controversy among specialists who
say that using an expensive robot to do
something that is already done well simply
with a microscope is a waste of resources.
Most patients pay out of pocket for vasec-
tomy reversal. The robot-assisted procedure
can cost more than $3,000 more than the

microscope method.
"The big question is did it improve out-
comes either pregnancy rates or the time
spent in surgery?" said professor Jay Sand-
low, M.D., vice chair of the department of
urology at Medical College of Wisconsin in
Milwaukee, who initially had reservations
about the robotic procedure but after seeing
the preliminary results now says he sees val-
ue in the method.
"It certainly looks as if he has done that,"
said Sandlow, who was not involved in the
study. "He has shown a meaningful decrease
in the amount of time it takes to do these ro-
botically compared to the open procedure."
Since many hospital fees are based on
time, cutting operating time might offset
some of the extra charges associated with the
use of the robot.
Parekattil, who has the rare combination of
being fellowship trained in both infertility
microsurgery and robotics, suspects that the
time reduction happens because the robot al-
lows for more efficient use of instruments
with the use of multiple arms and tools si-
multaneously.
It is too soon to tell whether pregnancy
rates have improved since the mid-2009 con-
clusion of the one-year study in which 20
men had the robotic procedure and seven had
the microscopic one. But two months after
surgery, average sperm count in the robotic
surgery group was 54 million, compared
with 11 million in the microscopic surgery
group. Early results show that the difference
in sperm count between the two procedures
decreases over time, however.
Another potential advantage of the robotic
procedure is less discomfort for some sur-
geons who would otherwise stand or sit with
their backs bent for extended periods over a
microscope.
The robotic procedure has its limitations.
Kuang believes that surgical results of the ro-
bot-assisted procedure will prove equivalent
to the microscopic method, but might not be
as useful for a more complicated reversal
that involves clearing a secondary blockage
that develops close to the testicles.
That's because in that case the surgeon has
to hold the sperm tube during surgery. That
is difficult to do robotically because a keen
sense of pressure is needed in order to avoid
crushing the microscopic tubes involved. But
Parekattil has developed techniques to stabi-
lize such small tubules while using the robot.
Despite the study's small sample size,
physicians say it is promising, and requires
more evaluation and longer follow-up of pa-
tients to yield more widely applicable results.
"I don't think there's going to be a huge
change in practice," Sandlow said. "But in
academia part of what we do is try to push
the envelope and try to see what works and
what doesn't and it's through studies like
this that we answer those questions."

"The quality and creativity of cornbread recipes
that are submitted to the contest continues to impress
me year after year," said Linda Carman, Martha
White baking expert. "Several years ago, we began
receiving recipes that got their unique style from be-
ing served with a 'salad' topping. Crowning a hearty
cornbread casserole with leafy greens or other vegeta-
bles, cheese and dressings gave a surprising and re-
freshing new dimension to the concept of a casserole.
This is just one example of the unique recipes we re-
ceive. We encourage entrants to experiment with dif-
ferent flavors, techniques and ingredients."
In 2007 Chicken Taco Cornbread Wedges with
Ranchero Cilantro Drizzle broke into new territory by
putting a cool salad mix and dressing over wedges of
spicy cornbread and won the coveted first place prize.
The following year, the judges awarded second place
to Zesty Italian Sausage Skillet with Sundried Tomato
Cornbread Crust topped with baby greens, balsamic
dressing and Gorgonzola cheese.

Cash and prizes
The Cook-Off grand champion will receive a
$5,000 cash prize, a 30-inch stainless steel gas range
(a $3,250 value) from Five Star Professional Cooking
Equipment, a division of Brown Stove Works, Inc.,

Iron.
The second prize winner will walk away with

remaining seven finalists will be awarded $150. All
finalists will receive $500 travel reimbursement and a
gift basket courtesy of Martha White and Lodge Cast
Iron.

By Stephenie Livingstonstephenie.livingston@gaflnews.comAweek and a half of frigid weather, with temperatures often falling into the teens, is beginning to take its toll on local residents, crops and livestock. Freeze warnings have been issued nearly every night since New Year's weekend, but the worst may soon be behind us. The National Weather Service says tomorrow night's low will be 37, followed by 49 Friday.

Superintendent Jerry Scarborough sent a letter home to parents on Dec. 16 stating that Suwannee County has only met 67 percent of the criteria set forth under the law. The district was reprimanded for the large number of African-American and economically disadvantaged students at Suwannee Elementary and Suwannee Intermediate schools who did not meet Adequate Yearly Progress, said Lila Udell, Director of Federal Programs. "This is not to say that all African-American students and social-economically disadvantaged students failed to meet AYP, but these two subgroups consist of the majority of children who did not make AYP," Udell said. The state has determined that the most appropriate action at this time is to reduce administrative funds by placing a cap on the amount of indirect cost that can be charged to the Title I, Part Aproject for 20092010, wrote Frances Haithcock, chancellor of public schools. For Suwannee, this means $13,002 will be taken from the Title I, Part Aadministrative fund and placed by DOE into after-school programs specifically to help the two subgroups, Udell said. Annually, the district receives $1,642,000 through Title I, Part Ato fund various programs and initiatives set forth under No Child Left Behind.

Dalton Harper, 18, (no photo available) of Lafayette County, pleaded guilty in Suwannee and has agreed to serve 8 years probation for committing a burglary while armed and five years probation for third degree grand theft. The order of his plea is concurrent with eight years probation he received in Lafayette County for burglary of a structure, and five years there for grand theft III.

Submitted Students at Suwannee Intermediate are loving the new book clubs recently started by media specialist Marcia Boatright. Boys’Lunch Bunch is held on Tuesdays andGirls’Lunch Bunch is held on Thursdays from 11:45-12:30 in the school library. The students eat lunchtogether and discuss a book over a period of severalweeks. “It’s a great way to build relationships because the kids are from all classes, from both grade levels,”Boatright says. Over the course of reading the books, the students discuss the characters and plot as well as related themes.Activities related to the books are also explored. “And we have snacks at the end!” says Boatright.The boys read Lawnboy by Gary Paulsen and learned about the stock market and running a business throughthe accidental summer job of a young boy. “I thought the book was funny and cool,” said Arantez. The girls read The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi and learned about sailing on the open seaand the semi-charmed life of a young girl who isaccused of murder, brought to trial and found guilty. “Charlotte was an amazing girl who really stood up to the bad guys,” said Jessica. “[Assistant Principal] Bethany Mitidieri and I first started talking about doing book clubs last year. Our vision was to justget kids talkingabout books. Wehad no idea howpopular it wouldbe or how much itwould grow,” saidBoatright. Much planning was done over the summer, but the clubs were a little late getting started because somepromised funds weren’t made available, said Boatright.Through some creative spending of book fair profits andborrowing from other schools, Boatright was able tostart the first club in October. There are plans for twomore clubs to start as soon as the money is madeavailable. “I can’t wait to start the Breakfast Club and the Culture Club, but we’ll have to wait for the grant moneyto be released so I can buy multiple copies of all of thebooks I want us to read,” said Boatright. “I would like tohave five clubs running at one time ... one for each dayof the week!” The next Boys’Lunch Bunch will be reading The Young Man and the Sea by Rodman Philbrick. “It’s a young boy’s incredible coming-of-age fishing adventure. I can’t wait for the boys to get to the ‘FISHON!’part! It will take their breath away!” saidBoatright.

Pharmacy & Your Health 570585-FPrevention & Treatment of Type 2 DiabetesType 2 diabetes is a chronic health problem characterized by the abnormal metabolism of sugar, or glucose. Insulin is an important hormone that is responsible for moving glucose into body cells. Persons affected by type 2 diabetes do not respond properly to body insulin, ordo not produce enough insulin. Common symptoms of the conditioninclude increased thirst, increased hunger, and unexplained weight loss.Fatigue and blurred vision also may occur. Those who are overweight orare inactive are at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Weight loss and increase in physical activity are recommended for the prevention of type 2 diabetes. A low carbohydrate or low-fat calorie-restricted diet may be recommended. Metformin ( Glucophage ) is commonly prescribed for persons with this type of diabetes.

A: Though tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body, and teethdo pretty tough work, a tooth isabsolutely capable of cracking. A crackcan develop suddenly. For instance, let’ssay you chew on a popcorn kernel, apencil, an ice cube, a hard candyanyof a number of really hard objects ifyou hit at the right angle, you couldcrack a tooth. Also, teeth are undertremendous pressure, given their rolesas food processors and the grinding youmay put them through. Over time, theycan weaken and crack even withoutchewing on any of the hard objectsmentioned above. In fact, if you have atooth that is overly sensitive to hot andcold, it may be cracked. Cracks can vary in length. If a crack is all above the gum line, a piece of toothmay break off. The dentist then may beable to treat it with a crown or a filling. Ifthe crack extends down into the root,the dentist may recommend a rootcanal or periodontal surgery. Generallythere is not guarantee, regardless of thework that is done, that a cracked toothcan ultimately be saved. Talk with yourdentist about ways to avoid cracking atooth.Presented as a service to the community by 571101-FASK DR. MANTOOTH362-6556 (800) 829-6506HERBERT C.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK CYANMAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Odd Even UU newnew Odd EvenUU newnew WEDNES D A Y , J AN U A R Y 13, 20 10 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 6ANorth FloridaBy Jim Holmes It is late at night and you are driving on one of our local roads when you spot a toddler walking alone on the highway. What would you do? I think theoverwhelming majority of us would stop our car orpickup, jump out and care for the child until weknew he or she was in safe hands. If that would beyour inclination, then you have the opportunity thismonth to step forward and help such kids. No, they are not wandering along some highway in the middle of the night, but their odyssey is noless dangerous or frightening. You see, the kids I’mtalking about are youngsters who for one reason oranother are wards of the state because their parentsare charged with abuse or neglect. In the sevencounties that make up the Third Judicial Circuit,these kids can number in the hundreds. Their parents have attorneys who are legally bound to fight tooth and nail for their clients. Like-wise, the state has a cadre of skilled lawyers work-ing for the Florida Department of Children andFamilies. And the kids are all assigned caseworkers,who are under contract to DCF. But each of thoseparties brings to the table their own agenda ... andfor various reasons, that agenda doesn’t alwaysknow about or place the interests of the childFIRST. That’s where your help is needed. You can become a Guardian ad Litem volunteer and in so do-ing, ensure that the needs and wishes of the childrenyou represent are presented directly to the judgehandling their case. My wife and I have been Guardian ad Litem volunteers for the better part of a decade and often wehave people say to us, “I just don’t know how youcan do it!” Our answer is simple. “Someone has totry to help these kids. If not us, then who?” I won’t lie to you. Being a Guardian can be frustrating, but then worthwhile endeavors are seldomeasy. Sometimes you encounter parents incapableof raising a child due to psychological issues. Oth-ers have personal demons to overcome themselves like drug abuse, alcoholism or their own historyof being abused or neglected before they canagain be entrusted to care for their kids. Then there is the system itself, filled with timeconsuming legal complexities. And all too often itis overburdened and underfunded, resulting in aconstant change of staff, particularly among thosecaseworkers directly responsible for knowing andmeeting a youngster’s needs. It’s not uncommon tosee a child have several different caseworkers in themonths and sometimes years it takes to eitherreunite a kid with his or her parents or to try to findthe youngster a new family. But these problems SHOULD NOTBE THE CHILDREN’S BURDEN ... and your job as aGuardian ad Litem volunteer will be to insure thatthey are not. I call it being the court’s “squeakywheel,” for I speak up whenever I believe the needsor desires of a child are being overlooked or ne-glected due to bureaucratic red tape, staff overload,budget restraints, legal-maneuvering and, at times,incompetence. Guardian ad Litem volunteer training sessions are now being scheduled for later this month through-out the Third Judicial Circuit. They are free. Youcan get more information by calling the Guardianoffice in Live Oak at 386-364-7720, extension 103. Please, give it serious thought. It is the most worthwhile job for which you will never be paid. Jim Holmes lives in Live Oak.Please address letters to:Letters To The Editor, Suwannee Democrat, PO Box 370, Live Oak, FL 32064.Please include your full name, address and daytime phone number.We ask this so we can verify your letterand discuss any questions about it with you. BIBLE VERSE“You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of youwho were baptized into Christ haveclothed yourselves with Christ.There is neither Jew nor Greek,slave nor free, male nor female, foryou are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:26-28 This month we would like to report on the following topics of interest: 1. Dropout Rate Florida Department of Education (DOE) released the dropout rates for 2008-09. Our local dropout rate fell from6.87 percent in 2007-08 to 3.4 percent for 2008-09. Incomparison, the state dropout rate was 2.3 percent. As you can see, we made significant progress, but we must continue our efforts to work with our community,parents, and staff to enable every student to graduate fromhigh school. 2. Race to the Top (RTTT) The state of Florida is applying for a federal grant in the amount of $700 million to provide additional funds to im-prove Florida’s education of its’students. In recent weeks,we have been in discussions with DOE, our School Board,and our Union representatives to determine if it is in thebest interest of Suwannee County students to receiveRTTTfunds. According to DOE estimates, Suwannee County would receive approximately $250,000 each year, for four years,to enhance education in our school system. However, aswith most federal grants, there will be additional mandatesthat might not be in the best interest of our school system. We will make a recommendation to our School Board at their special meeting on January 12, 2010, to sign a Mem-orandum of Understanding with DOE which will allow usto participate in the process to determine whether RTTTfunds will be a plus for our students. 3. Religious policyAt our School Board meeting held on December 22, 2009, several parents expressed concern on how religiousactivities play a part in our school system. Most of you are aware that in recent years our federal courts establishedguidelines on how the expression of religious beliefs is tobe administered in our schools. There was a consensus of the School Board that we should develop a policy that will provide guidelines onhow students will be able to express their religious beliefswithin our schools. Our School Board is in the process ofdrafting this policy. 4. Culinary ArtsThe Culinary Arts program for high school and adult students has returned to Suwannee-Hamilton TechnicalCenter (SHTC). The program is designed to give studentsa strong foundation and sense of direction in culinary ca-reers. The new chef is Chris Macarages, a Lake City native. He graduated with an A.S. degree in Culinary from LeCordon Bleu Orlando Culinary Academy. Chris hasworked at the Disney World Boardwalk Resort and otherquality restaurants. The Bon Appetite Caf, at SHTC, has reopened for Tuesday lunch. The program is also available for banquetsand special occasions. Reservations can be made by call-ing 386-647-4203. 5.

The essentialfeature of any religion is thatits pronouncements are to beaccepted on the basis of faithas opposed to hard evidence.Questioning those pronounce-ments makes one a sinner. Noone denies that the Earth’stemperature changes. Millionsof years ago, much of ourplanet was covered by ice, at some places up to a milethick, a period some scientists call “Snowball Earth.”Today, the Earth is not covered by a mile of ice; a safeconclusion is that there must have been a bit of globalwarming. I don’t know the cause of that warming, butI’d wager everything I own that it was not caused bycoal-fired electric generation plants, incandescent lightbulbs and SUVs tooling up and down the highways. The very idea that mankind can make significant parametric changes to the Earth has to be the height ofarrogance. How about a few questions because tem-perature is just one characteristic of the Earth. TheEarth’s orbit is another. If all 6.5 billion of us, all atonce, started jumping up and down for a little while,do you think we’d change the Earth’s orbit or rotation?Do you think mankind could change the direction andtiming of the ocean’s tides? Is there anything thatmankind can do to stop or start a tsunami or hurri-cane? You say, “Williams, it’s stupid to suggest thatmankind could change the Earth’s orbit or rotation,ocean tides or cause or stop a tsunami or hurricane!”You’re right and it’s also stupid to think thatmankind’s activities can make globalized changes inthe Earth’s temperature. Nonetheless, there is much at stake in getting people to subscribe to the global warming religion. There isso much at stake that some scientists, using govern-ment grants, are fraudulently manipulating climatedata and engaging in criminal activity, as revealed inwhat has been called “Climate gate.” One of the mostdangerous features of the global warming religion isits level of intimidation of heretics or would-beheretics. Afew years back, Dr. Heidi Cullen, the Weather Channel’s climatologist, advocated that the American Meteorological Society (AMS)strip their seal of approval fromany TVweatherman expressingskepticism about the predic-tions of manmade global warm-ing. Scott Pelley, CBS News Minutes” correspondent,compared skeptics of globalwarming to “Holocaust de-niers.” Former Vice PresidentAl Gore called skeptics “globalwarming deniers.” But it gets worse. On one of her shows, Dr. Cullen featuredcolumnist Dave Roberts, who, in his Sept. 19, 2006,online publication, said, “When we’ve finally gottenserious about global warming, when the impacts arereally hitting us and we’re in a full worldwide scram-ble to minimize the damage, we should have warcrimes trials for these bastards some sort of climateNuremberg.” As a result, many climatologists have been intimidated into silence. That means the public is not in-formed about counter-alarmists facts such as: Overlong periods of time, there is absolutely no close rela-tionship between C02 levels and temperature. Humanscontribute approximately 3.4 percent of annual C02levels compared to 96.6 percent by nature. There wasan explosion of life forms 550 million years ago(Cambrian Period) when CO2 levels were 18 timeshigher than today. During the Jurassic Period, whendinosaurs roamed the Earth, CO2 levels were as muchas nine times higher than today. Contrary to what edu-cators are brainwashing our children with, polar bearnumbers increased dramatically from around 5,000 in1950 to as many as 25,000 today, higher than any timein the 20th century. Political commentator Henry Louis Mencken (18801956) warned that “The whole aim of practical politicsis to keep the populace alarmed and hence clam-orous to be led to safety by menacing it with anendless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”That’s the political goal of the global warmers.

Another is to do a better job keeping intouch with family and friends, something that is soeasy to neglect. And this year I am going to takesome of those trips I had to cancel last year for vari-ous reasons. No big goals, but some that I am look-ing forward to carrying out! Aren't you glad our winter doesn't last very long? As many frigid mornings as we've had this week, I'mthankful I didn't suffer any broken water pipes thispast week. I lost some of my plants, and my outdoorpets would be waiting at the back door as soon as itstarted to get dark and the temperatures had droppedsignificantly so they could come into the warmth ofthe laundry room, but we managed to stay comfort-able. Most of my extended family up north aretrudging through lots of snow, so the top of my"thankful list" is knowing this cold weather will soonbe gone! I want to thank everyone who works with me on our prayer chain at O'Brien Baptist Church. We num-ber about 41 wonderful Prayer Warriors who careabout our community, and it is such a blessing to see TALLAHASSEE Governor Charlie Crist today announced the following reappointments and appoint-ments to the North Central Florida Regional PlanningCouncil, Region 3 (Senate confirmation required).

ACVVice President of Village Properties JimSchenck and Conner, alongwith Village PresidentCraig Carter, have beenworking together for abouta year to bring the stationunder the county’sumbrella. “It’s become apparent to us that a closer coordination and operationunder the same operationprocess that the countydoes would benefit thevillage,” said Schenck. Conner had approached county commissionersTuesday morning to seektheir approval but was metwith questions andconcerns. CommissionerIvie Fowler suggestedConner approach the FireGoverning Board. “They’re going to be a part of it and it all needs tobe in writing to beapproved by this board,”Fowler told Conner. Fowler, in whose districtDowling Park VFD may come under control of countyContinued From Page 1A the station lies, said hishope is to one day have apaid fire station instead ofa volunteer outfit inDowling Park. He said it is irresponsible not to haveadequate coverage for thatarea. Jesse Caruthers was worried about the cost. “I agree with the concepts,” said Caruthers.“But I’m kind ofconcerned about pullingmore funds. But I knowthat we need coverage inthat zone out there.” Commission Chairman Wesley Wainwright agreedand added, “We’re alsogoing to take overmaintenance andinsurance.” The village volunteer department consists of onefire fighting vehicle andabout eight certifiedfirefighter I volunteers.Conner said that is notenough to protect theresidents of the Village andsurrounding area. “Those folks out there right now have absolutelynothing and I don’t seewhy we’re sitting here asintelligent people andcontinue that,” Conner toldcommissioners. “I hope theboard has faith in me to beprudent in ... taking on thisventure.” Schenck said the Village, which will continue to payall utility bills on thefacility, will lease thebuilding to the county forone dollar a year. Fire Governing Board members will attend theJan. 19 countycommission meeting insupport of the move. Theywill also appeal tocommissioners to betterfund the volunteer stationsso they can comply withstate standards.Complying with thosestandards can benefitresidents of the county byhelping lower homeinsurance premiums. Thatmeeting starts at 4 p.m. atLive Oak City Hall. The district has taken steps to implement newservices in addition toexisting tutoring andschool choices alreadyoffered to students,Scarborough said.

However,Florida State Universityclimatologist David Zier-den said the consensusamong his colleagues isthat warmer temperatureswill return next week. “The cold snap is the result of a series of coldfronts that have broughtarctic air masses,” Zierdentold the Democrat . “There has been a pattern of per-sistent troughing since thefirst of January.” Zierden said the front that brings the rain maybreak up that pattern. Kimberly Thomas of the Suwannee Sheriff’s Divi-sion of Emergency Man-agement elaborated onwhat to expect over thenext couple of weeks. Whether extreme conditions return “depends onwhether we have a north-ern feed come in or a Gulffeed,” Thomas said. “If wehave a gulf feed we’ll staywarm, or warmer.” The current cold snap is the longest since 1989when freezing tempera-tures lasted for two weeks and most of SuwanneeCounty lost power due toan ice storm. In January1985, a severe freeze innorthern and central Flori-da resulted in about $1.2billion in damage to thecitrus industry, accordingto the National Oceanicand Atmospheric Adminis-tration’s National Environ-mental, Satellite, Data, andInformation Service. Dur-ing that cold spell, temper-atures reached a low of 6degrees. “It’s been over 20 years since we’ve had one thiscold,” said Sheriff TonyCameron. The threat posed by freezing cold temperatureshas prompted SuwanneeValley Electric to makespecial allowances. “We haven’t disconnected anyone due to non-pay-ment during this coldweather,” said SuwanneeValley Electric spokesmanTom Tuckey. With temperatures dropping as low as 18 degreeswith a wind chill readingof 10 perhaps even lowerin some parts of the countyyou should take everyWintry streak is worst in yearsContinued From Page 1A precaution to stay warmand to keep pets warm aswell. “You should layer clothes and remember it isjust as important to hydrateduring the winter,” saidThomas. “Bring domesticanimals inside when tem-peratures are in the teens.”She reminded everyone toprotect pipes and plants aswell as pets. The extremely low temperatures pose a threat notonly to people and pets, butto crops and livestock aswell. However, in Suwan-nee County’s case, it is themany local greenhousesand cattle farms that havebeen hardest hit. “We were really blessed it is not a time when wehave a lot of crops in thefield,” said Suwannee County Agriculture Exten-sion Agent Elena Toro. As for those crops already in the ground, in-cluding greens, lettuce, andbroccoli, Toro said “prettymuch everything was lost.”Farmers will not know theextent of the damage tofruit trees until the spring,Toro said. Blueberry farm-ers in Wellborn reported nodamages to the berries,however. “Our blueberries are of an old variety that fair wellin winter,” said owner ofScott’s Blueberry FarmBonnie Scott. “It hasn’thurt us, it’s actually proba-bly going to help.” Meanwhile, greenhouse operators are struggling tokeep plants warm, whilecattle farmers are workingto keep their cattle from going hungry. “We have alot of greenhouse operatorshere and their heating costshave gone through theroof,” said Toro. “It’s beenreally, really rough for cattle as well.” Toro said forage grasses planted in December havebeen all but destroyed. Shecalled the current situation“severe.”

Tundra is usually described as a biome with a lack of trees and a short growing season. There will be no tundra, never mind frozen tundra, this year. The NFLplayoffs are underway and unless Baltimore or the Jets pull off a major upset it will be a warm playoff season. The only frozen tundra may be the parking area outside the Metrodome. The Vikings, Saints and Colts all play indoors. Things aren't much different in Dallas and Arizona. San Diego is always nice. The weather will not be a factor, unless your fan base needs a plow to get to the game. Weather used to be an integral part of the championship games. The players actually shoveled the field in Philadelphia a halfcentury ago. There was of course the famous Giants sneaker game where the trainer went out at halftime and bought the team sneakers so they could navigate some frozen grass and mud. The Polo Grounds had a lot of things but tundra wasn't one of them. The Giants lost championship games in 1961, 1962 and 1963 in Green Bay, New York and Chicago. The combined temperatures of the three might approach freezing. Back then there was no such thing as wind chill, unless you were one of the fans sitting in the cheap seats.

Shawn wrestled in the Dixie National Tournament on Monday where he again wrestled kids from all over the United States. He wrestled an opponent from Missouri that was a several time National champion. Shawn won that match 8-0. Only 3 points were scored on By Drew Champlin Dothan Eagle TROYÑ Patrick Cherry saved his best for last. The Troy receiver had far and away his best season as a senior, and his best game was his final one at Movie Gallery Veterans Stadium, where he had a career-high 78 yards receiving on four catches with a 19-yard touchdown reception in a 47-21 win over Florida Atlantic. "That was pretty much my biggest game," Cherry said. Obviously. The Live Oak, Fla., native played as a true freshman in 2006, but mostly on special teams and didn't record a catch. He had three catches for 42 yards Ð including a 26-yard catch at highly-ranked Georgia, as a sophomore in 2007 and eight catches for 80 yards last season. Suwannee High School Class of 2005 graduate Patrick Cherry was recently interviewed by the Dothan Eagle on his career at Troy University in Alabama.

Blame it on the frozen dirt, I mean tundra. When wind chill was finally invented the Bengals and Chargers played in the coldest game ever: -54 in sunny Cincinnati. If the A/C gets stuck somewhere weather may be a factor. It could rain in San Diego. The Jets would have to win out and so would the Ravens to get a game in New York. The Minnesota Vikings have been to four Super Bowls and never won. They haven't even appeared in one since the Dome was built. The Colts are the only dome team to win a Super Bowl. And you know how I feel about them. Continued From Page 1B His first career touchdown came on a 7yard pass reception at LSU last year, one that was set up by his 12-yard reception. This year, he was able to come into his own as a backup at the H-receiver and Y-receiver spots. He caught 20 passes for 260 yards, both numbers that eclipsed his total from his first three years. He's sure to play a big role in the Jan. 6 GMAC Bowl for the Trojans (9-3) against Central Michigan (11-2). "He's made a lot of plays," Troy head coach Larry Blakeney said. "We've tried to get certain people in at certain times and sometimes we'd say somebody else was supposed to be out there, but it was Cherry and he'd make a big catch, maybe one down the middle or a one-handed catch." Cherry actually signed with Troy in 2005, but delayed enrollment until the spring of 2006. That helped him graduate before this season with a degree in criminal justice. Cherry began work in a master's degree in that field this fall. "He's been a real pleasure," Blakeney said. "We probably didn't expect him to be a great player, but he's fulfilled all the expectations we would have had for him and even more. "No. 1, he's a student that has already graduated. No. 2, he's a good citizen and No. 3, he's made plays." Cherry filled his role perfectly. While Jerrel Jernigan and TeBiarus Gill stepped up as the go-to guys, players like Cherry, Zack Marcum, Cornelius Williams and others became clutch possession receivers. "We've got a lot of receivers that can make big plays right along with them," Cherry said. Cherry said he wasn't sure what he'd do in continuing his education once football is over. He said he'd either stay in criminal justice, go to law school or look into coaching. But while his career hasn't been filled with the highlight-reel plays, there's nothing he'd go back and change. "I'm happy with the way things have gone," Cherry said. "Every year since I've been here, we've been winning championships, so I feel like I've had a real successful career here at Troy."

Dressed all in lavender, Shirley is a Village icon. So, it's no surprise that Shirley put a lavender Christmas tree on the back of her scooter and with Santa in a sleigh taped to her helmet, rode to first place in the Christmas Parade. Shirley's free-wheeling derring-do led her to get her pilot's license at the age of 64. The tradition is to cut off the shirttail when a pilot solos. She has a picture of the shirttail with her instructor's name to prove it. "I never did anything the ordinary way," Shirley muses. "I was even delivered by my father when a snowstorm prevented the doctor from coming." Shirley's mother died from pneumonia. So, at 13, Shirley says, "I raised my Dad." She became the homemaker. When her father remarried, Shirley tutored his stepson. When her father was having some work done on the house, Shirley looked down into the hole and saw George Baum, her future husband, hooking up the plumbing. She became a telephone operator at 18 and finding herself with a four-day vacation, decided to elope with George. Their friends went with them to Hannibal, Mo. where they stayed in Becky Thatcher's house. The next morning they found a clerk of the court and with marriage license in hand, found a Baptist preacher. As they were leaving town, their friends asked themselves, "Why didn't we get married, too?" So they looked up the clerk and got the license and when they went to the church, the preacher was still there and asked if they had forgotten anything. The other couple explained and were soon wed. They honeymooned in two little cabins. The marriage lasted 41 years and produced four children and seven grandchildren and six greats. When George died in 1983, Shirley went with the Wycliffe Translators in Waxhaw, N.C. serving as a secretary for 25 years. She sent five years working in the Philippines. On a mission to take supplies to missionaries in the jungle, Shirley offered to help the pilot drop the boxes. The door had been taken off before leaving the ground and Shirley was doing fine until her seat belt came loose. She hung on for dear life and finished the job. As she was drawing a deep breath and thanking God for taking care of her, the pilot excitedly pointed out the plane's shadow on the clouds surrounded by a halo. This is a phenomenon that pilots call "into the glory." Shirley thought it was a more personal sign that God had protected her from falling out with the boxes. Boxes of eggs were safely delivered by parachutes. Often Shirley baked oatmeal cookies that were dropped, delighting the missionaries who were far from civilization. Shirley's best friend, Lorelee Chamberlin, persuaded her to come look over Advent Christian Village and when she did, she moved here. Shirley is very active in water aerobics and working at Twice Nice. She also calls bingo at Dacier Manor. She answers the phone with, "This is the Baum Shelter." So, if you're visiting the Village, be on your guard for a lavender streak Ñ it could be Shirley Baum.

However, many people do not have the will power to stick with their resolutions. Here are some tips to help you stick with those resolutions. Aim forthe achievable Do not set yourself up for a let down. Experts say to make your goals, write them down, and look at them from time to time to help you stay on track. Also, do not try to set too many goals at one time and don't beat yourself up if you have a bad day. Reward yourself for meeting goals. Enlist a resolution buddy Find someone to be your cheerleader and help support you in your efforts. They may not have to have the same resolution as you do but it helps to have a little support. Cut back but do not cut out Often times diets that eliminate foods or food groups do not end very successfully. Simply try cutting back on your portion sizes and the amount of sweetened drinks you consume each day. If you need a little help with meal planning, visit www.mypyramid.gov and enter what foods you have eaten for a typical couple of days. This free service will give you a report on how you can improve your diet. Get moving Try to increase the amount of movement you do each day. If you do not like exercise, don't think of it that way. Park further away from the store or work, get up and go tell a co-worker something instead of emailing or calling them, walk to your mailbox instead of driving, etc...anything that requires you to move! Stamp out stress Stress makes us do crazy things and it can do damage to our bodies. Try to confront what causes the stress in your life and figure out if there is a way to make it better or avoid it. If it simply cannot be avoided, be sure to make time to do an activity that takes your mind and body away from your stress. If you and your coworkers are interested in starting a worksite wellness program, now is a great time! The Healthy Communities, Healthy People Program at the Suwannee County Health Department has the answer. We can tailor a program to fit your needs. If employees simply need weekly health reminders, healthy newsletter or if you are interested in "lunch and learn sessions," we can fit the program to match your needs. Please contact Mary Ward, at the SCHD 386362-2708 x259 for more information.

By Jeanne Fannin Residents at Surrey Place had a wonderful surprise on Dec. 16. Santa Pup, otherwise known as Paquito Fannin, brought smiles and even squeals of happiness as residents held and petted her. Some also told stories of their own pets to her, and Paquito listened to them all and smiled. Paquito eventually had to go but promised to visit them again soon. Odell Fortner and Paquito Fannin.Suwannee 500 Club holds Christmas partyBy Jeanne Fannin After a short meeting, food was served from everyone bringing their favorite dish which was enjoyed by all. We also had entertainment by our locals in the 500 Club, on the Dulcimers. They are called "Suwannee Strummers." Talk about beautiful music! Then we exchanged gifts and all were happy with what we received. Time to go home and our hostess Esther Farro was still in a good mood as she was cleaning up after all of us. Thank you Esther.

However, exercise is only one part of the process. Combining exercise with a healthy diet is the best way to achieve optimal physical health. But a healthy diet doesn't have to mean a full dietary overhaul. Rather, there are ways to alter dietary habits without having to sacrifice favorite foods. * Pan-fry or saute foods with a nonstick spray or low-calorie butter substitute. Bake or broil instead of frying. *Replace sugar with substitutes when sweetening foods and beverages. * Order from the light menus now offered at many restaurants, or purchaselow-calorie or reduced-fat products at the grocery store. * Try a meal plan using "exchange lists" based on foods grouped together according to similar food values. Most exchange lists include several "free" foods: those lower than 20 calories per serving, such as many low-calorie, sugar-free foods and beverages. * Never skip meals. Eat three to six times a day in smaller portions to keep from getting hungry. * Practice patience when eating. You don't have to be full at the end of every meal. In fact, eating slowly can help you better determine when it's time to leave the table without feeling stuffed. * Weigh yourself regularly, but don't put too much stock in the scale, particularly if you're feeling better.Simple ways to alter dietary habits "Everything For Your Home Recovery"• Medical Equipment • OxygenLocally Owned & Operated101 SW U.S. Hwy. 27, Branford, FL 32008(386) 935-6905229 W.

Continued From Page 3ÔIn the days of Robin Hood'Jousting: Always a favorite at the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire. Courtesy photo • Calendar of Events • Weekly Meetings • Monthly Meetings • FYIBy Czerne M. Reid University of Florida urologists have used robot-assisted surgery to cut about 20 minutes off average surgery time for conventional vasectomy reversal using a microscope. Sperm count after surgery is comparable over a year for the two procedures, but the robotic procedure appears to result in a quicker return of sperm count. "For a couple that's trying to get pregnant, this is a big deal," said Sijo Parekattil, M.D., director of male infertility and microsurgery at UF, who led the study. The findings, now online and to appear in an upcoming print edition of the Journal of Endourology, represent the first head-tohead comparison of robot-assisted vasectomy reversal and the microscope procedure that is widely used. Many types of surgery are now being aided by robots, and surgeons continue to explore new areas in which they can be used. "This is state-of-the-art stuff, it's cuttingedge, and a stepping stone to understanding whether or not we can use this technology on a more widespread basis," said Wayne Kuang, M.D., director of Male Reproductive Health at University of New Mexico, who was not involved in the study. "It's a natural progression from back in the days when we just had magnified eyeglasses." But robotic vasectomy reversal is not without controversy among specialists who say that using an expensive robot to do something that is already done well simply with a microscope is a waste of resources. Most patients pay out of pocket for vasectomy reversal. The robot-assisted procedure can cost more than $3,000 more than theUF surgeons use robot to shave time off proceduresSijo Parekattil, M.D., director of male infertility and microsurgery at the University of Florida, demonstrates robot-assisted surgery. Photo:Sarah Kiewel/University of Florida microscope method. "The big question is did it improve outcomes either pregnancy rates or the time spent in surgery?" said professor Jay Sandlow, M.D., vice chair of the department of urology at Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, who initially had reservations about the robotic procedure but after seeing the preliminary results now says he sees value in the method. "It certainly looks as if he has done that," said Sandlow, who was not involved in the study. "He has shown a meaningful decrease in the amount of time it takes to do these robotically compared to the open procedure." Since many hospital fees are based on time, cutting operating time might offset some of the extra charges associated with the use of the robot. Parekattil, who has the rare combination of being fellowship trained in both infertility microsurgery and robotics, suspects that the time reduction happens because the robot allows for more efficient use of instruments with the use of multiple arms and tools simultaneously. It is too soon to tell whether pregnancy rates have improved since the mid-2009 conclusion of the one-year study in which 20 men had the robotic procedure and seven had the microscopic one. But two months after surgery, average sperm count in the robotic surgery group was 54 million, compared with 11 million in the microscopic surgery group. Early results show that the difference in sperm count between the two procedures decreases over time, however. Another potential advantage of the robotic procedure is less discomfort for some surgeons who would otherwise stand or sit with their backs bent for extended periods over a microscope. The robotic procedure has its limitations. Kuang believes that surgical results of the robot-assisted procedure will prove equivalent to the microscopic method, but might not be as useful for a more complicated reversal that involves clearing a secondary blockage that develops close to the testicles. That's because in that case the surgeon has to hold the sperm tube during surgery. That is difficult to do robotically because a keen sense of pressure is needed in order to avoid crushing the microscopic tubes involved. But Parekattil has developed techniques to stabilize such small tubules while using the robot. Despite the study's small sample size, physicians say it is promising, and requires more evaluation and longer follow-up of patients to yield more widely applicable results. "I don't think there's going to be a huge change in practice," Sandlow said. "But in academia part of what we do is try to push the envelope and try to see what works and what doesn't and it's through studies like this that we answer those questions."
