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.

It's been more than a
decade since 15-year-
old Nathan Scott Han-

away, but for his par-

Hannon, memories of
their son are still very
much alive.

"This case is about
Nathan developing an
ordinary problem with
his shunt a problem
that was easily treat-
able," said James W.
Gustafson Jr., attorney
for the family, in his
opening argument.
On October 28,
1999, Nathan first
complained to his fa-
ther of a headache and
vomiting. His symp-
toms lasted into the
next day.
The next morning
Nathan was taken to a
Shands clinic in Live
Oak, Gustafson said,
and was later advised
to go to Shands at Live
Oak for lab work and a

'Road to Olustee'

To make it to Florida's largest Civil War battle,
Confederate soldiers had to march through Live Oak

Submitted
The Confederacy took over the Suwannee County
Historical Museum Saturday. Members of the First
Florida Company C, Second Battalion of Hardy's
Brigade set up camp in front of the museum for the
second annual "Road to Olustee" event sponsored by
the museum.
They welcomed between 75-100 guests during the
event. Portrayed as a living history event, and not a re-
enactment, this gathering was a welcomed educational
opportunity for the Suwannee County community.
Visitors were encouraged to step inside an authentic
Civil War tent and given the opportunity to handle
some of the equipment that would have been used by
the Confederate soldiers of 1864. Participating in this
event were Private James Johansen (age 16), Private
Tyler Dasilva (14) and Private Zach Pennington (14).
Also on hand were the Ladies of Luraville, dressed
in period costume. Local author and historian Eric
Musgrove was also in attendance offering his books
for sale and expertise in historical accounts and
records. Eric serves as a valued member of the
Suwannee County Historical Commission, a museum
volunteer, and is employed by the Suwannee County
Clerk's Office.
The event came to a close with a Confederate take-
over of Grace Manor restaurant, complete with the
confiscation of the Union flag. The troops and the
ladies reconvened on the grounds of the historic
Thomas Dowling house. The group was welcomed by
a full house of restaurant guests, and provided an
educational opportunity while guests were waiting to
be seated. Grace Manor staff was gracious in
accommodating the soldiers and the Ladies of
Luraville. Also participating was Richard Wright of
Colonial Photography offering his services for
professional portraits with the soldiers and the
Luraville ladies.
Plans are being made for next year's event.
"I hope that we can become a part of the bigger
picture of events that lead up to the actual battle of
Olustee re-enactment in Lake City," said Randy
Torrance, event chairman and Museum executive
director. "I am grateful that these young men and the
ladies of Luraville were willing to come out and help
with this event. At first, it looked as though that this
year's event was not going to happen, but thanks to
everyone involved, we were able to pull it off for a
second year."
Torrance also wishes to remind everyone that the
official reenactment of the 1864 battle of Olustee will
take place on Sunday at the Olustee State Park, east of
Lake City at 1:30 and that the city of Lake City will
host downtown festival events beginning on Friday,
Feb. 11. Full event details can be found at
www.olusteefestival.com.
The Suwannee County Historical Museum is located
at 208 N. Ohio Avenue in Live Oak in the Historic
Atlantic Coastline F,. *...1it Station. Their V7'. i'ii;..
hours are Tuesday Saturday from 9 am 3 pm,

donations are accepted. The museum's phone number

ASK DR. MANTOOTH|
I I

Q: When should a child first see a dentist?
A: The American Dental Association
recommends that a child see a dentist
within six months after the eruption of the
first baby tooth. Bear in mind that baby
teeth, also called primary teeth, are as
important as the permanent teeth to follow.
Generally primary teeth start showing up
between the ages of six months and a
year. Not only do the teeth help a child
chew and speak, they are placeholders for
the permanent teeth that are developing
under them.
Baby teeth can develop cavities, just as
permanent teeth can. Once an infant's diet
contains anything other than breast milk,
the new teeth are at risk for decay,
sometimes called early-childhood caries or
baby-bottle tooth decay. A visit to the
dentist with a toddler is also an
opportunity for a parent to get a
demonstration from the dentist on how to
care for the child's mouth and how to show
the child what to do. The dentist can also
assess whether a thumb-sucking habit is
having a harmful impact on a child's teeth.
Also, the sooner your child starts
becoming comfortable in the dental office
environment, the better it will be for him or
her as they age. Talk with your dentist
about your child's dental health.

Cyber safety presentation for schoolkids


Suwannee County schools and the At-
torney General's office are teaming up to
educate parents about the importance of
cyber safety. Every day 77 million chil-
dren use the Internet and, of children ages
10-17, one out of every seven will be sex-
ually solicited online. In 2007, Florida At-
torney General Bill McCollum's Cyber
Safety Education Program debuted at
middle and high schools across the state,
including our own Suwannee Middle and
High School and Branford High School.
During the interactive 50-minute presenta-
tion, students learn about the risks of and
tactics used by online predators as well as
what constitutes a cyber crime and how to
report it. The program is presented by
specially trained members of the Attorney


General's team.
The Attorney General's office now has
a team that teaches parents how to identi-
fy potential threats that could endanger
their child as well as important tips and
safety measures. It is designed with par-
ents in mind as they pursue their primary
responsibility of protecting the youngest
members of their family. For more infor-
mation, resources and tips, visit
www.safeflorida.net.
Please join us at the First United
Methodist Church of Live Oak on Feb. 18
at 6 pm. The event is FREE and everyone
is welcome to attend. For more informa-
tion, please contact Lisa Garrison,
Suwannee County Schools Parent Liaison,

Shoes for Haiti


In four days, residents of Advent
Christian Village collected more than
300 pair of shoes that were sent to
Haiti via Southwest Airlines. Residents
used this project to express their con-
cern for the devastating conditions in
Haiti following a monumental earth-
quake.


ACV Concerned Citizens group, un-
der the leadership of Charlotte and Ken
Manuel, sponsored the project.
Concerned Citizens is a group of
ACV residents who meet monthly edu-
cating themselves on governmental is-
sues, especially preserving the integrity
of the U.S. Constitution.

Shoes for Haiti:

Republicans pitch in to help


By Sherryl Huseonica
Wally Marin, SCREC Education
Chairman, put out the call for "Shoes
for Haiti" only about a week ago, and
the response was overwhelming. The
generous folks in Suwannee County
who gather for the monthly Republican
meeting have responded in a big way.
Wally had asked everyone to bring do-
nated shoes to the Republican Executive
Committee general meeting on Thurs-
day, Feb. 4 at Live Oak City Hall. There
were about 70 in attendance. The Ad-


vent Christian Village residents alone
had collected over 300 pairs of shoes
under the guidance of Precinct 9 Com-
mitteeman and woman, Ken and Char-
lotte Manuel. Those shoes, combined
with the rest that were collected at the
meeting on Feb. 4, added up to about 30
large garbage bags full! Wally went to
Gainesville on Friday to deliver the
shoes for a flight that was leaving for
Haiti. Thanks to all those who were
able to donate shoes and be a blessing
to others during a time of great need.


SMS students lend

a hand to Haiti


Thanks to the efforts of 6th graders Brian Barker and Sean
Crawford, Suwannee Middle School Students have been
busy collecting money to assist the earthquake victims in
Haiti. Brian and Sean came up with the idea and challenged
other SMS students to help them meet their goal of $500.
SMS was up to the challenge and a check for $500 will be
sent to the American Red Cross. From left: Brian Barker

Coulter completes
Marines basic training
Marine Corps Pvt. Joshua A. Coulter, son of Terri
Skinner of Live Oak, recently completed 12 weeks of ba-
sic training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island,
S.C. designed to challenge new Marine recruits both
physically and mentally.
Coulter and fellow recruits began their training at 5
a.m., by running three miles and performing calisthenics.
In addition to the physical conditioning program, Coulter
spent numerous hours in classroom and field assignments
that included learning first aid, uniform regulations, com-
bat water survival, marksmanship, hand-to-hand combat
and assorted weapons training. They performed close or-
der drill and operated as a small infantry unit during field
training.
Coulter and other recruits also received instruction on
the Marine Corps' core values honor, courage and
commitment, and what the core values mean in guiding
personal and professional conduct.
Coulter and fellow recruits ended the training phase
with The Crucible, a 54-hour, team evolution culminating
in an emotional ceremony in which recruits are presented
the Marine Corps Emblem, and addressed as "Marines"
for the first time in their careers.

Miss Daisy

By Jim Holmes
I really like dogs. Always have. That doesn't
mean I hate cats. In fact, we currently have four fe-
lines living in and around our barn. And based
upon our history, there is the distinct possibility
that number will grow, assuming some new stray
finds its way to our home.
But I've never become as attached to any cat as
I have some dogs. I guess that should come as no
surprise, as dogs have been my constant compan-
ions since before I could even turn over in my crib.
In fact, one of the earliest stories I heard dealt with
me napping outside on a summer afternoon when a
rat darted from behind a wood pile toward my blan-
ket ... only to meet its maker thanks to the family
dog.
I recently started thinking about the big role
"man's best friend" has played in my life thanks to
a dog calendar given to me for Christmas. Quotes
are printed throughout. One is by author, Milan
Kundera, who wrote, "Dogs are our link to par-
adise." I'm not sure I'd go that far, because if that
is the case, in my paradise I will own nothing but
chewed-up slippers and shoes and I'll always have
to watch where I walk while outside, for fear of
stepping in something.
But canines are special. We have three. Scooter
- a seemingly fearless, frighteningly intelligent,
three pound Yorkie is our "house dog" and both
my wife and I are crazy about him. I just wish I
could convince Lynda to stop dressing him up in
brightly colored sissy shirts and then taking him
out in public. I swear when we are out like that and
I look Scooter in the eye, he is begging me to res-
cue him from his predicament before some other
member of the canine species sees him!
Our other two dogs live in my barn-workshop
(which is heated) and are slightly bigger. Daisy is a
130-pound English Mastiff, while Royce is her
French cousin who tips in at a mere 110. Both were
adopted from folks who found the breed too large
to keep in their homes. But mastiffs do have one
drawback. Their mouths are like upside down
drinking fountains, where the slobbering flow nev-
er ceases. Having said that, they are wonderful an-
imals to own when you live out in the country. You
see, they are very protective without being high
strung or overly aggressive.
I seem to be the center of their universe. That's
particularly true with Daisy, who you will always
see at my side when I'm out-of-doors. That's fine,
except when I need to use my gas-powered, fire en-
gine red (my granddaughter picked the color) golf
cart. If I'm in it, she sees no reason why she
shouldn't be sitting on the seat next to me. Talk
about an odd couple; an old bearded fat man in a
beat-up straw hat driving along his fence line with
this giant yellow dog snuggled next to him ... her
head propped on his shoulder like she's some
lovesick teenager. I've actually had passing mo-
torists stop their vehicles just to take in this ridicu-
lous sight. It gives a whole different meaning to
that old movie title, "Driving Miss Daisy."
There is only one problem. My Miss Daisy en-
joys driving our fire engine red golf cart as much as
riding in it. So when I get out, I have learned the
hard way to turn the ignition off. Otherwise, Daisy
sits on the throttle and off she goes ... this old fat
man frantically racing OK, frantically waddling
- to catch-up with her.
I wouldn't care that much, except like most of
the leggy blondes I have known, my Miss Daisy
"pushes the petal to the metal" and pays little or no
attention to where she is going!
Jim Holmes lives in Live Oak.

We have looked at the state of small business in our
union, and it is not good.
Our Small Business Economic Trends monthly report,
which has tracked small business conditions for more than
35 years, shows that small business owners nationwide are
struggling to keep their doors open. Optimism among
small business owners declined in the latest report as small
business owners experienced weak sales and negative
earnings.
In addition, capital spending is sitting on the sidelines.
Plans to make capital expenditures over the next few
months are near the 35-year record low, as is the demand
for credit to finance such projects.
And small business owners continue to cut more jobs
than they create, a trend that must be reversed in order for
our economy to start thriving again. To put the current con-
ditions in perspective, the numbers we're seeing now are
lower than they were in the 1981-82 recession, and have
been that way for many more months.
The fact that the Obama administration is considering
extending the 2001 and 2003 tax rates is a welcome step in
the right direction. Raising taxes is never a good idea when
the economy is trying to recover from a recession. Fur-
thermore, the vast majority of small business owners pay
their taxes at the individual level so allowing the 2001 and
2003 lower tax rates to stay in place will benefit those
businesses. It will also give small business some sense of
certainty they can depend on as they make critical deci-
sions about expanding their business.
Seventy-five percent of small business owners think that

now is not a good time to expand their business. And when
asked what is the most important reason influencing their
plans for expansion, political climate ranks second with
only economic conditions receiving more votes.
There is uncertainty over how numerous legislative ini-
tiatives from Washington will impact the cost of running a
business, causing too many small business owners to con-
clude that they just can't afford to take the risk to expand
their business or hire new employees. If elected leaders
want small business owners to resume their traditional role
as our nation's job creators, they must realize that uncer-
tainty over their legislative agenda is impeding job growth.
We sincerely hope that the administration keeps in the
budget released this week a permanent extension of the
2001 and 2003 tax rates. We urge Congress to pass a bud-
get that includes the lower tax rates. This would ensure that
small business owners can adequately plan for the future
and keep more of their own money to invest in their busi-
nesses.
Uncertainty is the enemy of economic growth. If the ad-
ministration and Congress truly want to help put small
businesses, they should alleviate small business owners'
fears over taxes as well as job-threatening cap-and-trade
and card-check legislation, which should be eliminated
from Washington's domestic agenda.
Only by creating a climate in which entrepreneurs have
confidence in our country's direction will we be able to
turn this economy back down the path to growth and pros-
perity.

It is a sad fact of life, but in today's
world it is almost imperative that both
husband and wife hold down jobs in or-
der to make ends meet. Those who
have young children are faced with the
daunting task of finding qualified, ap-
propriate childcare for their preschoolers
while they head off into the business
world. Single parents also find them-
selves in the same predicament. Who
will take care of my children?
What they all want, of course, is as-
surance that whoever they designate to


The McAlpin Advent Christian
Church will participate in a forty day
devotional, scriptural prayer guide
called, "Seek God for the City." From
the forty days, not counting Sundays,
beginning on Feb. 17 through Palm
Sunday (March 28), the church mem-
bers will use the daily devotional con-
taining prayers of biblical hope to seek
the Lord's guidance during Lent.
"We have enough prayer guides on
hand to give to any visitor during the
Lenten season," said Pastor Paul A.
Bertolino. "This is so important to us
and we want to include as many as


care for their children will do so with
loving care and professionalism. The
owners of Love-N-Care Preschool in
Branford are well aware of those par-
ents' wishes and say they welcome the
opportunity to prove themselves as the
best place in town to care for your pre-
cious cargo.
Back in 1986, Love-N-Care was the
very first preschool to open in the town
of Branford and for the past 24 years
they have been proudly serving the
community. It all started in a rented

O'BRIEN AND OUR NEIGHBORS


'Bits & Pieces' from


south Suwannee County


By Ana Smith
BRRRRRRR!!! I was hoping for
some much warmer weather while my
friend Mary Goldsmith was in town,
but we managed to get out and have
some fun despite the cold. Last week-
end we enjoyed "The Hoggetowne
Medieval Faire" in Gainesville, al-
though the winds in the morning were
almost enough to blow us away. We
both had looked forward to that event
since it was first announced in the
newspaper, and we were not disap-
pointed. My favorite part of the day
was the 'human chess game' between
Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Not-
tingham, and I applaud all the people
who took part in that game. It was as
much entertainment as watching a live
play anywhere.
Mary also visited with some old
friends, like Debbie Brown and her
family, even had her hair done by
Debbie's daughter, Marlene, then spent
some time with old friend Melvin
Hurley. Mary also got to say hello to
some of her friends at Evergreen Bap-
tist Church, and I want to thank each
member there last Sunday for their
warm welcome and to say the bread
they shared with us was delicious.
Mary's visit was much too short, but


we had a good time. I'm hoping the
next time we get together it will be
when I can make a trip up to her part
of the country, Owensboro, Ky.
This weekend marks the annual
"Sweetheart Banquet" at O'Brien Bap-
tist Church hosted by the men of the
O'Brien Brotherhood. It will be held
in the fellowship hall starting at 6
p.m., and this is always a fun time
with games for some of the couples
and lots of good food. Everyone in
our community is invited to join with
us. Bring your 'sweetie' and a pot
luck dish to share, and be prepared for
some good, wholesome Christian fun.
Hope I see you there!
The seminar on diabetes being held
at the Suwannee County Extension
Office is proving to be a real source of
good information. I'm learning a lot
more about my diabetes than I expect-
ed because I thought I had learned it
all between Harold's condition and my
own. This class is more than worth
the cost, and the new information is
proving to be very important. Only
two classes have been held so far, and
these classes will continue until March
25, so if you are diabetic or have a

possible from our community and
Suwannee County. All children will re-
ceive a daily devotional corresponding
with the adults so families can learn to
pray together."
The church is also planning to begin
a membership/baptism class on Feb. 21
at 9:45 a.m. and will be team taught by
the pastor and the Rev. Dr. David
Dean. Dr. Dean's book, Resurrection
Hope, will be used for the class and is
free to all that attend. For further infor-
mation, call the Pastor at 386-658-
1048. The church is located at 17214
89th Road.

Lawsuit

Continued From Page 1A

high school soccer player, trumpeter in
the Suwannee High band, and an Eagle
Scout at 13 was declared brain dead later
that day.
* *

When Nathan Hannon was two years
old, his parents noticed a change in their
son. He literally could not lay his head
down to rest, a point noted by both parties
in the case Monday.
After an early misdiagnosis by doctors,
the Hannons learned that Nathan had hy-
drocephalus, a condition in which fluid
builds up in the cavities of the brain caus-
ing cranial pressure that often leads to oth-
er neurological disorders. Surgeons insert-
ed a shunt in his brain to drain the excess
fluid from his head down past his chest
where it could be reabsorbed. He main-
tained an active and generally normal
lifestyle after the operation, with some in-
cidents over the years including a shunt
replacement at age five, Gustafson said.
John Jopling, attorney for the defense,
noted in his opening statement that Nathan
had undergone an additional surgery in
1993, at age 9, in which the shunt was re-
placed yet again after a fracture was dis-
covered in the device.
* *

"Mama, make me comfortable," were
Nathan's words to his mother as she rode
beside him in the back of the family van on
1-75 headed to Gainesville, Gustafson told
jurors Monday. "That's when Yvette
looked down, and saw that Nathan's lips
had turned blue."
A call was placed to 9-1-1, and Rick
Hannon pulled off to the side of the road.
Yvette began performing mouth-to-
mouth resuscitation on her son, waiting for
rescue to arrive, Gustafson said.
Once Nathan was transferred into an am-
bulance, the Hannons Rick, youngest son
Ricky and Yvette traveled the rest of the
way to Gainesville to be at Nathan's side.
A vigil began at his bedside.
According to Gustafson, "The doctor
asked, has anyone told the parents that he's
brain dead?" with Yvette standing in the
room. "That's how the family found out.
Nathan Hannon suffered brain death on
Oct. 29 in the back seat of the family car in
his mother's arms."
Nathan showed the telltale signs of
emergent distress on that final day,
Gustafson argued. The doctors and physi-
cians in Live Oak weren't in the dark about
his shunt, Gustafson said.
"If a doctor examines a patient and sees
signs of a shunt malfunction, it is that doc-
tor's responsibility to contact a neurosur-
geon immediately," Gustafson said. "A


L begins

shunt malfunction is an emergency. You
don't delay transfer of a patient for a CT
scan, you get the patient to a neurosurgeon.
Nathan's vital signs were never even
checked. There was reckless disregard -
they knew or should have known that
Nathan's condition was emergent, not just
urgent."
Still, Gustafson argued, "no one took re-
sponsibility for the patient."
Nathan was considered an outpatient of
the clinic, even though Shands as an entity
"had no policy for when a physician's as-
sistant was the one placing the calls to a
neurosurgeon neither the clinic physi-
cian nor the hospital doctor at Shands
(Live Oak) took the responsibility for the
patient," according to Gustafson.
"It was an unwritten rule between the
clinic and the hospital a negligent sys-
tem," Gustafson suggested.
"No healthcare provider made a phone
call to a neurosurgeon. No one was manag-
ing Nathan's care he was falling
through the cracks. It was Yvette Hannon
who finally made that call," Gustafson
said. "They're suing Shands for three rea-
sons: Its employee failed to manage the
care of the patient; there was a poorly
planned system set up where no one is re-
sponsible; and Shands takes no responsi-
bility whatsoever for Nathan's death."
Christian Searcy, Gustafson's co-counsel
approached the jury.
"Their precious 15-year-old son who
they loved more than life died on Friday
afternoon on the side of the road."
He mentioned the psychological effects
the Hannons have experienced as a result
of the tragedy, which included depression,
post-traumatic stress, and more.
Both Hannons steadily wiped tears from
their eyes during the course of the opening.
"Yvette will never forget looking down
and seeing that her son's lips were blue.
And, how she pressed her mouth to his,
trying to breath life back into her son," said
Searcy, returning to his seat.
* *

"In our view the story starts a bit earlier
than the plaintiffs have stated," defense at-
torney Jopling told jurors. He mentioned
the various shunt replacement surgeries
Nathan had endured during the course of
his life, including the additional fracture
and replacement when Nathan was nine.
HIciv coi 1994 to 1999, he was free of
symptoms," Jopling said. "Then came the
trip to Colorado."
Nathan Hannon had traveled with his
Boy Scout troop to camp at the end of July
1999, returning shortly before school start-
ed in early August, Jopling said.
While on the trip, Nathan began experi-
encing symptoms similar to those he had
experienced in the previous instances in-
volving possible shunt malfunctions:


in death of teen


"headaches, vomiting nausea," Jopling ex-
plained.
Nathan was taken to an area hospital and
examined by a physician, and later a neu-
rospecialist, who advised: "He is to be seen
in his clinic when he returns home,"
Jopling explained, showing medical dis-
charge sheets from Parkview Medical Cen-
ter in Colorado.
Jopling argued that Nathan never had a
follow-up with a neurosurgeon when he re-
turned to Florida.
Jopling said, he intended later in the trial
to call as a witness Bob Pinello, a former
co-worker of Yvette Hannon's, who would
testify that "Yvette told him that Nathan
would need to be seen by a neurosurgeon
once back in Florida."
* *

Jopling said that "around 5 p.m. on
Thursday Oct. 28, 1999, everything was
going fine. Nathan attended a JV football
game. After the game he threw up (vomit-
ed), and complained of a headache."
Jopling continued.
"Nathan woke up earlier than usual the
next morning. He sat on the kitchen floor,
and complained to his father of a
headache."
Shortly after, Nathan was taken to the
Shands clinic.
There at the clinic Yvette and Nathan ran
into Pinello, Jopling said.
"He asked Yvette, 'What did the doctor
tell you when he had the incident in Col-
orado? He doesn't need to be here in this
clinic, he needs to see a neurosurgeon,'"
Jopling said, reiterating his intention to call
on Pinello as a witness.
Jopling said the case hinges on the ques-


tion, "Why didn't the doctors and physi-
cians tell the Hannons that Nathan was at
risk of death? Answer simply put. They
didn't know that. Nothing from what they
could tell said that he was in mortal dan-
ger," Jopling argued.
"They did the one thing in Live Oak they
could do perform a CT Scan to see if
there was anything irregular."
Jopling says a Dr. Spendel at Shands
Live Oak, also a witness in the case "will
tell you that he had responsibility, but not
opportunity to carry through the plan."
Jopling said Rick Hannon left the hospi-
tal with Nathan before Nathan could be ex-
amined there and if necessary, admitted
into the ER.
"If anybody, including Nathan's parents,
or the doctors had that crystal ball to see
what was to come, certainly things may
have happened differently," Jopling said.
"All these folks knew each other. To the
doctors and physicians, this was Yvette's
boy, they were doing everything in their
power to treat Nathan," Jopling said.
Yvette Hannon was employed at Shands
Live Oak at the time.
Dr. Spendel was under the understanding
that Yvette had spoken with the neurosur-
geon in Gainesville, despite twice suggest-
ing to admit Nathan into the ER in Live
Oak, Jopling said. "Spendel wasn't
alarmed because nothing from what he
could tell was emergent looking at
Nathan's symptoms it wasn't reasonably
foreseeable. Negligence is failure to use
reasonable care. They were doing every-
thing in their power for Nathan."
Testimony in the case was underway at
press time. See Friday's Democrat for

The Boat Man

A big thank you to the many people who worked so
hard in an effort to save Tom Ferguson.
Tom was the man in the little green house boat who
docked on both sides of the river & went up and
down the Suwannee. He was special to many of us
and will surely be missed. He had lots of interesting
stories and tales to share.
He graduated Valedictorian of his high school and
was a graduate of Clemson College.
Survived by a brother, Bruce and a sister-in-law,
Bonnie Ferguson, the ones he called Mom and Pop,
Basil and Frances Green and many friends.
He attended the Branford United Methodist
Church.
A memorial will be held on Saturday, February 13,
at 10 a.m. at the boat landing, a farewell with his
ashes put on the Suwannee, the place he loved.

Obituary
Tom Ferguson Memorial will be at Ivey Park Boat
Landing on February 13, at 10 a.m.

Quinton Lee Woods, 21, of Live Oak


ber Woods was found guilty of attempted
robbery while armed with a deadly
weapon and of driving without a license.
Woods was arrested Feb. 3, 2009 after
trying to rob a man at a drive-through
ATM outside First Federal Bank the night
before.
According to reports, as the victim was
preparing to drive away, Woods reached
through the open window and placed the
knife at the victim's neck, demanding mon-
ey. The victim accelerated from the scene
and escaped harm. Woods then fled south
on foot and entered a black Dodge Mag-
num. The victim and witness attempted to
follow Woods but lost his trail. About an
hour later, a sheriff's deputy stopped a ve-
hicle matching the description of the one
Woods had entered. Woods was identified
by the victim and was arrested. He had
been in jail ever since.
Just weeks before the February 2009 in-
cident, Woods had been released from
prison after four years in Jefferson Correc-

life in our community," he said.
"I often go into the schools and
read or visit classes and present
programs about city govern-
ment. I have hosted many
classes at City Hall for pro-
grams."
Nobles says he does not lim-
it his service to what is called
for in the City Charter. "I do
whatever it takes to improve
the quality of life for our citi-
zens."
Added Nobles, "I am the
biggest cheerleader Live Oak
and Suwannee County has. I
promote and lift up our com-
munity and always present a
positive attitude toward my
community and its people."
Whether it is through his May-
or's Comer, published in the
Suwannee Democrat, or per-
sonal contacts, he says he lets
everyone know there is not a
better place to live or any better


"I am well known and re-
spected throughout the region
and state," he said. "My influ-
ence has been invaluable in
getting things done for our
community and acquiring
many millions of dollars for
projects and programs for im-
provements in our communi-
ty."
Nobles said he serves as a
watchdog over the city. "I have
made sure the city is operated
in an efficient, conservative
and cost effective manner."
As Mayor, he is charged
with making sure the city, state
and federal laws are enforced.
"I have made sure the laws and
policies are enforced and ap-
plied equally to all," he said.
Nobles says his leadership is
unquestionable. "I have pro-
vided mature and invaluable
leadership as Mayor of Live
Oak. My leadership, guidance


"The city is in a posture to
serve and meet the needs of
businesses and companies that
desire to come to our commu-
nity and bring jobs for our citi-
zens and provide a greater tax
base for our governments,"
Nobles said. "With the sewer
system upgrade, reuse capabil-
ities, two new sewer plants and
the drinking water system up-
grade, everything will be in
place to attract and service
business and industry. The city
is ready when they want to
come. The prison is a perfect
example. Without the city's
sewer and water, the prison
would not have been able to lo-
cate here and we would have
lost the 800 jobs the prison will
eventually provide. I am proud
to say that the cost of much of
the recent improvements in the
city has been paid for with
grants or low interest loans.


Nobles states that economic
development has been a main
goal during his tenure as May-
or. "I work very closely with
the Chamber in support of
business development activi-
ties. I am in continuous contact
with the Chamber giving sup-
port and encouragement".
Nobles asserts he is respon-
sive to all that call on him for
help or advice. "When a citizen
comes to me for assistance or
advice about a situation, I give
it my full attention"
He says his attitude has al-
ways been that if it is important
to them, it's important to him.
"I help anyone with anything
as long as it is in accord with
the laws and policies of the
city."
He added, "I have a proven
record of service to this com-
munity and I stand on that
record."


William W. Blue, of Blue & Byers, after
the interviews. Airth received a score of
365 to Blue's 305.
"The next step is to negotiate a contract
with Airth," Commissioner Jesse
Caruthers said Monday. "If that's not suc-
cessful we go to the guy in Perry. So we'll
just go through negotiations and see what
happens."
Airth is seeking a raise from $100 an
hour to $125 an hour and is asking that his
retainer fee be raised from $18,000 to
$20,000.
"I think he's entitled to it," said Com-
missioner Douglas Udell. "He's good
here. He may not be prompt all the time,
but neither am I nor are any other com-
missioners."
The last time Airth received a raise was
four years ago when his hourly fee was
raised from $75 to $100 an hour.
"County commissioners have received
raises, but the attorney has only received
the one," said Udell.
Airth has served as county attorney
since 1996.


I would like to make some
improvements to my home this
spring but with the economy the
way it is, I'm wondering if I
should.


L* what you see or hear every day in
the news about the terrible economy, life and
home improvements do go on. In local
neighborhoods, people are giving their
homes exterior paint jobs; they are adding
crown molding, new interior paint and all
kinds of other home improvements. The
economy may not be what we want it to be
but not maintaining and updating your home
will cost you when you go to sell. Stop into
Live Oak Paint & Flooring for help on your
next home improvement project.

Aspirin for Peripheral Arterial Disease
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a condition characterized by
narrowing of the arteries in the legs. A buildup of fatty deposits leads to
such narrowing, which impairs normal blood flow. Men are more
commonly affected by PAD. Persons with high blood pressure, high
cholesterol, and diabetes are at an increased risk of developing PAD.
Those who smoke or are obese are also at an increased risk of
developing this condition. Intermittent claudication, a condition that
commonly occurs in persons affected by PAD, is an uncomfortable or
tired feeling in the legs during walking. This happens because there is
not enough blood flowing to the muscles.
Persons with PAD who smoke are encouraged to quit. Other
conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes, should be treated.
Exercise, such as walking several times per week, is also recommended.
A healthy diet is usually recommended. Persons with PAD may be
prescribed an antiplatelet medication, such as aspirin, aspirin plus
dipyridamole (Aggrenox), or clopidogrel (Plavix). Persons who
experience claudication may be prescribed pentoxifylline (Trental or
Pentoxil) or cilostazol (Pletal). These medications work to improve
blood flow. An angioplasty, which works to open up the arteries, may be
necessary for severely blocked arteries. 575408 F


tional Institution for carjacking with a
firearm, robbery with a firearm, grand theft
auto and fleeing and eluding a law enforce-
ment officer. He remained on probation for
those crimes committed in Broward County
in 2004, and still faces an additional penal-
ty.
Thursday, Quinton Woods' mother, Sab-
rina Woods, pleaded with the judge for le-
niency for her son.
"He's not a bad child," she said. "He just
needs a second chance. Really, I need a
second chance," she said, referring to her
son's upbringing.
However, it wasn't enough to sway
Judge Bryan from levying the maximum
30-year penalty, with a 10-year-minimum
mandatory sentence for the armed robbery.
Under count two, no driver's license,
Woods was sentenced to 60 days in the
Suwannee County Jail, but received jail
credit. The motion for a new trial and a re-
quest for a furlough were both denied.
Woods has 30 days to appeal.

Boys soccer ends

in double overtime


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

The Suwannee boys
soccer team fell to Crys-
tal River in the Region 2-
3A quarterfinal match
Thursday, 2-1. Suwannee
and the Pirates were tied
in the second overtime.
But with just moments to
go, Crystal River snuck
the ball in past goal keep-
er Jake Hayes to break
the 1-1 tie.
"Unfortunately the best
team doesn't always
win," said Suwannee


coach Archie Cook. "The
season was a huge suc-
cess, with the level of dif-
ficulty, adding new teams
to the schedule. I think
the kids did extremely
well."
Crystal River made the
first goal in the first half,
sailing the ball past
Hayes. Suwannee's Stu-
art Brown came out in
the second half and
scored the second goal of
the night, and tying the
game.
Suwannee ends the sea-
son 17-4-1.

Turnovers decide pro

the Saints won by.

Smith's father, the late husband
Dr. W.C. (Bill) Smith, was Suwannee
County Agricultural Extension Director
from 1973 to 1988, when he retired.
Smith's mother is Johnnie Ruth Smith.



A living




legacy


David Smith carries on
in his father's tradition
Staff
A long-time North Caroli-
na State University faculty
member has been named as-
sociate dean for research for
N.C. State's College of
Agriculture and Life Sci-
ences and director of the
College's North Carolina
Agricultural Research Ser-
vice.
Dr. David Smith Dr. David Smith, Philip
Courtesy photo Morris Professor and for-
merly head of N.C. State's
Department of Crop Science, succeeds Dr. Sylvia
Blankenship, College of Agriculture and Life Sci-
ences associate dean for administration, who was
serving as interim Research Service director. In addi-
tion, Dr. Steven Lommel, interim associate dean for
research, has been active in administering the day-to-
day operation of the Research Service.
Smith's father, the late husband Dr. W.C. (Bill)
Smith, was Suwannee County Agricultural Extension
Director from 1973 to 1988, when he retired. Smith's
mother is Johnnie Ruth Smith.
The Agricultural Research Service is the research
arm of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences,
with oversight responsibility for close to $130 million
in research expenditures annually.
Smith joined the N.C. State faculty in 1981 as a
North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service tobac-
co specialist in the Department of Crop Science. He
was named interim department head in 2006 and per-
manent head a year later. Crop science is one of the
largest departments in the College of Agriculture and
Life Sciences.
Smith holds a Ph.D. in crop science from N.C.
State University, while both his master's and bache-
lor's degrees are from the University of Florida. Both
degrees are in agronomy.
The majority of Smith's career has been spent
working with North Carolina's flue-cured and burley
tobacco growers and Cooperative Extension agents as
Extension tobacco specialist, although he served for
two years, from 1994 to 1996, as Crop Science De-
partment extension leader and associate department
head. He was named Philip Morris Professor in 2000.
In the late 1980s, Smith led extension educational
efforts and research programs that aided North Car-
olina tobacco growers in transitioning to a method of
growing young tobacco plants in greenhouses. The
so-called transplants are then moved to fields. This
system is now used by all the state's tobacco growers.
Smith's tobacco research and demonstration efforts
also helped growers increase transplant survival and
dramatically reduce fertilizer usage and cost.
Smith said his overarching goal as Research Ser-
vice director will be to provide an infrastructure that
will allow individual faculty members to be success-
ful.
"We have a diverse faculty in terms of the scientific
disciplines that faculty members represent, yet all our
faculty have one thing in common," Smith said. "We
are all here to support North Carolina citizens and to
work toward improving the quality of life in the state
and beyond."
Smith assumes leadership of the Research Service
at a time of budget difficulty throughout state govern-
ment, and the Research Service is no different.
Smith said his most immediate challenge as Re-
search Service director will be to manage research
funding in a manner that will continue to support the
creativity of College faculty. He added that a priority
will be filling a vacant associate director position
with a person with the expertise needed to support
faculty who are pursuing diverse scientific interests.


GARDENING TIPS FROM THE LIVE OAK GARDEN CLUB


This barberry shrub grows in zones 4-8. Barberry shrubs are widely used in garden landscapes because of their attrac-
tive foliage and deer resistant thorny stems. Keep your shrub well-watered and regularly fertilized, and it will retain its
lovely reddish leaves throughout the winter. This winter is an exception, but it will come back to its full glory in the spring.

Flower drying




with a microwave


By Lucille Heinrich
& Sherryl Huseonica
Winter is a tough time for garden-
ers, especially with the cold we re-
cently have been experiencing. A
wonderful indoor pastime to consider
is experimenting with drying flowers.
The purpose of drying flowers is to
remove the moisture from the flowers
while keeping the form and color as
original as possible. The tried and
true method of hanging flowers down
side to dry is not only time and space
consuming, but you also need a well-
ventilated dry space in which to do
this. The heavy humidity in our area
often leads to rotting flowers instead
of dried ones. Consider using your
microwave to dry flowers instead.
Right now you can't run out into your
garden to pick flowers, but you can
experiment with the process by using
your indoor plants or purchasing an
inexpensive bouquet at your local su-
permarket. Pansies, mums, roses,
ferns, carnations, poinsettia leaves,
and daisies work well.
Two methods will be described: 1)
using Silica Gel and 2) using mi-
crowavable stacking plates.
1) Method #1 Silica Gel (Rec-
ommended if you want three dimen-
sional flowers.)
Using Silica Gel is easy, but it costs
money: You can purchase the silica
gel from almost any craft store; it is a
sand/crystal-like product which is a
chemical that is used as a dehumidi-
fying agent.
Select a microwavable container
that will fit your flower. Fill the con-
tainer with about 1-1/2" of the gel,
place the flower (remove all but
about an inch of the stem) in the gel,
and then carefully cover the flower
with the gel leaving at least an inch
above the flower. Here is where you
will need to do a little experimenting.
Depending on the power of your mi-
crowave and the size of your flower,


it will take from 1-1/2 to three min-
utes or more to completely dry your
flower. If your microwave has ten
power levels, then use level four; oth-
erwise, try "defrost" level. You will
have to experiment with timing and
power of your microwave. After the
first 1-1/2 minutes, check your flower
by carefully pushing back the gel
with a pencil or toothpick to see how
the process is going. Be careful! Use
potholders as it will be hot! After
your flower is dry and cooled, care-
fully remove the gel (use a soft brush
to remove gel from the petals) and
carefully store your flower in a plas-
tic baggy until you have enough dried
flowers to complete your project.
Method #2 Stacking microwav-
able plates (Recommended if you
want pressed flowers.)
Simply place a double layer of pa-
per towels on a microwavable plate,
place your flower or leaf on the paper
towel, top with another double layer
of power towels, and then another
microwavable plate. So you have a
stack of: plate paper towels flower
- paper towels plate. Put the heat on
high and microwave for about 40 sec-
onds; delicate petals take only about
20 seconds. Once cool, let the dried
flower rest on a dry paper towel for a
few minutes. You can reuse the paper
towels; just let them dry out. Wipe
any moisture collected on the plates
between each procedure. This
method is good if you simply want
pressed flowers and works very well
for leaves.
Notes:
Silica Gel can be used again and
again. Used silica gel will turn pink
due to the addition of moisture. Bake
it in a 250-degree oven until it turns
blue again to reuse, that is, if your sil-
ica is blue in the beginning.
It is not recommended that you put
food in containers once they have
held silica gel.


Keep a notebook handy to record
the times and power levels you use as
both of these procedures take trial
and error.
Dried flowers are beautiful in
arrangements and attached to
wreaths. Save any petals that may
come off for use in potpourris. When
using in arrangements, simply use
floral tape and either toothpicks or
floral sticks to give the flower a
longer, studier stem. To preserve the
flowers, you can spray them with hair
spray to help them hold their shape.
However, a better option is a flower
preserver or acrylic spray for really
long lasting flowers. These can last as
long as two years!
When your flowers are dry, place
them in a Ziploc bag to keep moisture
from entering again until you are
ready to use Florida humidity!

Jim was presented the volunteer
plaque, which brought smiles and
laughter to the residents and employ-
ees. Jim had a special way of mak-
ing the residents laugh and had a lit-
tle saying that went along with some
of the numbers called. For example
for N-44, he would call "Lester"
which the saying was "here lies ol'
Lester more, 4 slugs from a .44 no
Les no more", which was from a

Arizona. Surrey Place Care Center is
forever grateful of Jim Downs for his
faithfulness and dedication to our

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day



at Saint James A.M.E.


Submitted
Saint James A.M.E. Church sponsored
their annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Day, Sunday, Jan. 17. The speaker for this
occasion was Mr. Thomas Mitchell, Sr.
President-Elect, FAMU National Associa-
tion and former Harlem Globetrotter. He
gave a very informative and interesting
message and the congregation seemed to
have enjoyed it.
In 2008, St. James A.M.E. Church de-
cided that they would honor a person each
year that has and continues to perform out-


standing community services in Suwannee
County yet never seeks money or praise.
The 2008 recipient of Dr. King's Award
went to Commissioner Douglas Udell. The
2009 recipient was Samuel Beasley. This
year the award was given to Mae Devoe
Fields, president of the Boys and Girls
Club.
St. James A.M.E. Church will be cele-
brating Black History Sunday, Feb. 21 at 4
p.m. The community is invited to attend.
This program will be different and very in-
teresting.

son. If the Colts had en-
tered the Super Bowl an
undefeated team, a differ-
ent mindset would have
shown up for both sides.
The Colts in fact have not
been vindicated for their
faux pas. An undefeated
season has come around
twice in NFL history. The
Colts choose not to tempt


destiny and destiny hath
punished them for it. We
will have to listen about the
1972 Dolphins apparently
forever. I doubt the Colts or
any of their players will
ever have this opportunity
again, and they don't de-
serve it.
The Saints have a Super
Bowl championship, some-
thing the Vikings, Eagles,
and Chargers, but to name
a few, came close but no
cigar. The Saints will be
happy to wear the bull's-
eye of Champion on their
back next season. The
Colts can only think of
what could have been.


Drew Brees was the
MVP and how fitting an-
other Purdue quarterback
and Super Bowl underdog
and MVP Lenny Dawson
brought the trophy to the
podium. Brees was
shunned by the Chargers
but will probably never
have to pay for a meal in
New Orleans for the rest of
his life.
It was an exciting, well
played game. This is more
then I could say about the
commercials, which like
the Colts, disappointed a
lot of fans. Milkaholic
however, will now enter the
American vernacular.

months. To make sure the
money is channeled prop-
erly, the two formed In
Motion For a Million,
which allows supporters
to go online (visit inmo-
tionforamillion.org) and
donate, give encourage-
ment, learn about these
diseases or just keep up
with Steven and Dan dur-
ing the trip.
On Feb. 1, accompa-
nied by a support system
of two friends, Steven
and Dan set out from St.
Augustine on the adven-
ture of their lifetime.
They're depending upon
the good will and gen-
erosity of people along
their route to assist with
donations for the cause.
So far, they've been sur-
prised that not only are
people filled with the de-
sire to donate money for
awareness, they've donat-
ed food, drinks, overnight
accommodations, encour-
agement and more for
these young men. Satur-
day night, six days after
the trek began, Steven
and Dan and their group
found themselves spend-
ing the night on the banks
of the Suwannee River
courtesy of the Spirit of
the Suwannee Music Park
in Live Oak. They were
happy to rest after
rollerblading 47 highway
miles on their sixth day
of the coast-to-coast trip.
But, Steven, 28, and
Dan, 30, aren't typical
young people. They
aren't worrying about
sore muscles or the three
and a half months they've
each taken off from their
regular jobs for this very
personal fund-raising trek
they expect will try them
to their limits. They're


committed and dedicated
toward raising awareness
about leukemia,
Hodgkin's lymphoma and
Huntington's disease,
whatever the cost.
So far, they've received
gifts of a hotel room for
the night, roadside ac-
commodations at Mike's
Fruits and Vegetable
stand in Hastings, parked
overnight at a Citgo ser-
vice station in Flo-
rahome, stayed with a
guy named John Ander-
son (no, not THE John
Anderson) who they met
near Gainesville, spent
the night in High Springs
at the Blue Springs Motor
Lodge, enjoyed pizza at
the B & B convenience
store in Wellborn at the
end of the sixth day and
enjoyed a live band,
raised some donations
and spent the night on the
famous Suwannee River
at the Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park, all
gifts to the cause! At the
Spirit, they had the op-
portunity to take the
stage during the band's
break and talk about the
purpose for their trip.
That five-minute chat re-
sulted in many dollars in
donations from patrons
enjoying the music.
The two men hope this
is just the beginning. In
just six days, Steven said
he they'd raised about
$2,000 with more than
3,000 miles to go.
On pace to arrive in
San Diego April 24, the
guys headed west early
Sunday morning through
Madison, Monticello and
on toward Tallahassee
and beyond.
Steven, an English
teacher for K-fourth
grade, said he was visit-
ing his cousin and the


merica


family's new baby boy in
Georgia about two years
ago when the idea of
rollerblading across
America to raise aware-
ness about Huntington's
disease came to him
while rollerblading.
"The thought just
popped into my mind,"
Steven said over the
sounds of a live country
band playing in the back-
ground at the Spirit. "I
decided to do it, and
that's where Dan came
in. Dan's one of the most
driven and optimistic
people I know."
Steven said when he
approached Dan, the an-
swer was fast. "Yeah! I'm
in!" Dan told Steven. "He
said that with a little
gleam in his eye," Steven
laughed, as Dan grinned
from ear to ear.
Since both are commit-
ted athletes, they put
their heads together and
spent the next 18 months
training for this mam-
moth exercise in en-
durance. They also suc-
ceeded in getting Dan's
friend, Phil, a recently re-
tired police officer, to
join them as the driver of
the borrowed motor home
for the 3,000 mile plus
adventure. Also on board
is Julie, Dan's friend who
is the substitute mother
(she's had plenty of expe-
rience, she's the mother
of six children), chief
cook, masseuse and in
charge of order during
the trip!
The Tsunami 2005 mo-
tor home was loaned to
the two by Dan's friend,
who moved out of the
motor home and pur-
chased a condo to live in
while the guys
rollerblade across Ameri-
ca in his former "home."


Ken also had the motor
home embellished with a
"wrap," a colorful photo
and advertising package
covering the entire motor
home that lets everyone
know about their trip and
charity.
Rollerblade, a company
that produces the
rollerblades the two are
grinding down daily on
the roadways, is sponsor-
ing them by providing all
the rollerblades they use
during the grueling fund-
raiser.
Steven took a job
teaching at a private
school in Seoul, Korea to
train for the cross-coun-
try trip because Seoul is
known as the hardest
working city in the
world, he said. Dan did
his training in New York
City where he's a produc-
tion assistant for author
James Patterson.
"People have been
overwhelming nice,"
Steve said of the trip this
far. "That's what it takes
to do something like
this," Dan chimed in.
"Get out there, live
your dreams, and make a
difference ... today!" is
Steven's motto.
"Think you can, think
you can't; either way,
you'll be right." are
Dan's words to live by.
You can bet Steven's
aunt, Betty, who died of
Huntington's disease, and
Dan's mother, Valerie,
who died of Hodgkin's
lymphoma, would be
proud of the efforts of
Steven Feigenbaum and
Dan Bowen, two big-city
guys who are making
other Americans proud.

Steven and Dan's trek on
rollerblades, go to inmo-

Cyber safety presentation

for schoolkids
Feb. 18
Suwannee County schools and the Attorney General's
office are teaming up to educate parents about the
importance of cyber safety. Every day 77 million
children use the Internet and, of children ages 10-17, one
out of every seven will be sexually solicited online. In
2007, Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum's Cyber
Safety Education Program debuted at middle and high
schools across the state, including our own Suwannee
Middle and High School and Branford High School.
During the interactive 50-minute presentation, students
learn about the risks of and tactics used by online
predators as well as what constitutes a cyber crime and
how to report it. The program is presented by specially
trained members of the Attorney General's team.
The Attorney General's office now has a team that
teaches parents how to identify potential threats that
could endanger their child as well as important tips and
safety measures. It is designed with parents in mind as
they pursue their primary responsibility of protecting the
youngest members of their family. For more information,
resources and tips, visit www.safeflorida.net.
Please join us at the First United Methodist Church of
Live Oak on Feb. 18 at 6 pm. The event is FREE and
everyone is welcome to attend. For more information,
please contact Lisa Garrison, Suwannee County Schools
Parent Liaison, at 386-647-4623.

NFCC students building


sculpture for college campus


Continued From Page 1
Cooley has been working with the NFCC Art Club and
NFCC art instructor Lisa Barden since late November
collecting recycled pieces of metal, creating the sculp-
ture design a sea turtle and welding the base and inte-
rior structure of the sculpture into place. Several NFCC
students have even had the opportunity to work in the


Bronze by Cooley studio in Lamont while working on
the project. The group plans to complete the project in
March 2010.
"This project is an amazing educational opportunity
for our students who are working closely with a profes-
sional artist while learning about new materials and
methods," said Lisa Barden, art instructor at NFCC.
"The students are excited to leave behind their artistic

mark on campus to be enjoyed for generations. We are so
grateful to Mr. Cooley for generously donating materials
and offering his time and guidance."
Cooley was named among NFCC's Outstanding Alum-
ni in 2006 and while a student at NFCC studied under
former NFCC art instructor Dr. Bill Gardner on an art
scholarship. For the past twenty years Cooley and his fa-
ther Bradley Cooley have devoted their creative abilities
to creating amazing sculptures and have earned a reputa-
tion for their exceedingly large and realistic sculptures of
American Indian subjects and wildlife. The Cooley's life-
size bronze sculpture of famous musician Ray Charles
can be seen in Haffye Hays Park in Greenville, Fla. and
they have over 40 commissioned monumental and life-
size sculptures in public parks, government grounds, col-
lege campuses, museums and corporations in Florida
alone.
When complete the NFCC sculpture will be perma-
nently located near NFCC's Marshall Hamilton Library
(Bldg. 4) a prime location for students and campus visi-
tors alike to enjoy the piece of art. The NFCC Art Club
also hopes add landscaping and seating around the sea
turtle sculpture which will be around six feet wide.
"I think it's really awesome that we, students, can have
a physical impact on the campus," said NFCC student
Ross Everett.

By John Pastor
As scientists work to find new treatments for Pompe
disease the devastating genetic "villain" that drives the
efforts of the main characters in the recent film "Extra-
ordinary Measures" University of Florida researchers
are hopeful that gene therapy will help patients in the
late stages of the disease breathe on their own.
Clinical trials of a gene therapy for Pompe-related
breathing problems in six infants are expected to begin
at UF this summer.
Writing in Molecular Therapy, scientists with UF's
Powell Gene Therapy Center describe how they used a
gel to deliver a corrective gene directly to the di-
aphragms of a mouse model of the disease. In people,
Pompe disease is a form of muscular dystrophy that
causes extreme muscle weakness and leads to severe
breathing difficulty.
"In disease treatment we always think prevention is
better and easier than reversal, but we don't always
have the opportunity to prevent some diseases," said Dr.
Barry Byrne, a UF pediatric cardiologist and the direc-
tor of the Powell Gene Therapy Center. "When we find
out that reversal of what could be considered permanent
damage is possible, that is extremely encouraging."
Children with Pompe disease cannot produce the en-
zyme acid alpha-glucosidase, or GAA. Without the en-
zyme, sugars and starches that are stored in the body as
glycogen accumulate and destroy muscle cells, particu-
larly those of the heart and respiratory muscles.
In the coming gene therapy trial, scientists will incor-
porate the correct gene to produce GAA into an adeno-
associated virus, which already exists in most people,
and inject it into each patient's diaphragm. The intent is
to "infect" cells of Pompe patients with the genetic ma-
chinery they have been missing since birth.
In the latest experiments, UF scientists targeted the







SWE WANT


diaphragm an essential muscle for healthy breathing -
in mice at different stages of the disease.
"We were able to provide some level of correction in
animals of different ages, but it may be more important
that we are able to provide benefit to older ones," said
Dr. Cathryn Mah, a UF assistant professor of pediatrics.
"Many Pompe patients are older children and adults.
The longer people have the disease, the weaker their
muscles get. Respiratory complications are their No. 1
problem. If we can get some improvement for them, this
is worthwhile to keep pursuing."
Byrne believes gene therapy is a way to augment the
current treatment for Pompe patients, which involves in-
travenous infusions to replace the missing GAA en-
zyme.
Efforts to find a treatment for Pompe disease, some of
them based on the work of UF's gene therapy and pedi-
atric doctors, are depicted in Pulitzer Prize-winning re-


porter Geeta Anand's book "The Cure."
The book became the basis of the film "Extraordinary
Measures" starring Harrison Ford and Brendan Fraser.
Byrne provided technical advice to the producers during
filming and has a brief moment as an extra in a scene
with Fraser.
The film depicts the true story of John and Aileen
Crowley, whose two youngest children were diagnosed
with Pompe disease. Faced with no options, John Crow-
ley quit his job as a marketing executive and started a
biotechnology company, Novazyme Pharmaceuticals
Inc., which was eventually purchased by Genzyme
Corp.
A cure has yet to be found, but Byrne is hopeful that
advances can be made to improve the quality of life for
patients and their families.
"We think the gene therapy aspect will work along-
side the traditional treatment," said Byrne, who is also a
member of the UF Genetics Institute. "In chemotherapy,
a combination of treatments is used to benefit the pa-
tient, and we hope this will work in the same way."
Other members of the UF research team include Paul
Reier, a professor of neuroscience in the College of
Medicine; and David Fuller, an assistant professor of
physical therapy in the College of Public Health and
Health Professions. The research was funded by the Na-
tional Institutes of Health and American Heart Associa-
tion. The University of Florida has patents involving de-
livery of genes using adeno-associated viruses.

The Great Backyard Bird Count


Bird watchers coast to
coast are invited to take
part in the 13th annual
Great Backyard Bird
Count, Friday, Feb. 12,
through Monday, Feb. 15.
Participants in the free
event will join tens of
thousands of volunteers
counting birds in their
own backyards, local
parks or wildlife refuges.
Each checklist submit-
ted by these "citizen sci-
entists" helps researchers
at the Cornell Lab of Or-
nithology the National
Audubon Society, and
Bird Studies Canada learn
more about how the birds
are doing-and how to pro-
tect them. Last year, par-
ticipants turned in more
than 93,600 checklists on-
line, creating the conti-
nent's largest instanta-
neous snapshot of bird
populations ever record-
ed.
"Taking part in the
Great Backyard Bird
Count is a great way to
get outside with family
and friends, have fun, and
help birds-all at the same
time," said Audubon Edu-
cation Vice President,
Judy Braus. "Even if you
can identify a few species
you can provide important
information that enables
scientists to learn more
about how the environ-
ment is changing and how
that affects our conserva-
tion priorities."
Anyone can take part in
the Great Backyard Bird
Count, from novice bird
watchers to experts. Par-
ticipants count birds for
as little as 15 minutes (or
as long as they wish) on
one or more days of the
event and report their
sightings online at
www.birdcount.org. One
2009 participant said,
"Thank you for the oppor-
tunity to participate in cit-
izen science. I have had
my eyes opened to a

whole new interest and I
love it!"
"The GBBC is a per-
fect first step toward the
sort of intensive monitor-


ing needed to discover
how birds are responding
to environmental
change," said Janis Dick-
inson, Director of Citizen


Science at the Cornell
Lab. "Winter is such a
vulnerable period for
birds, so winter bird dis-
tributions are likely to be


very sensitive to change.
There is only one way-
citizen science-to gather
data on private lands
where people live and the


GBBC has been doing
this across the continent
for many years. GBBC

has enormous potential
both as an early warning
system and in capturing
and engaging people in
more intensive sampling
of birds across the land-
scape."
Bird populations are al-
ways shifting and chang-
ing. For example, 2009
GBBC data highlighted a
huge southern invasion of
Pine Siskins across much
of the eastern United
States. Participants
counted 279,469 Pine
Siskins on 18,528 check-
lists, as compared to the
previous high of 38,977
birds on 4,069 checklists
in 2005. Failure of seed
crops farther north
caused the siskins to
move south to find their
favorite food.
On the www.bird-
count.org website, partic-
ipants can explore real-
time maps and charts that
show what others are re-
porting during the count.
The site has tips to help
identify birds and special
materials for educators.
Participants may also en-
ter the GBBC photo con-
test by uploading images


taken during the count.
Many images will be fea-
tured in the GBBC web-
site's photo gallery. All
participants are entered in
a drawing for prizes that
include bird feeders,
binoculars, books, CDs,
and many other great
birding products.
In 2010, Bird Studies
Canada joins the GBBC
as the program's Canadi-
an partner. "Bird Studies
Canada is delighted to be
the Canadian partner for
this extremely valuable
program," said George
Finney, President of
BSC. Iilii iIp.lilIl in

Few things are likely more taken for
granted than vision. Unless an individual
was born with a need for eyeglasses or
has suffered an eye injury, chances are
that individual takes his or her vision for
granted.

While it's human nature to do so, it's also
potentially very dangerous. According to
the National Institute for Occupational
Safety and Health (NIOSH), roughly 2,000
American workers sustain job-related eye
injuries each day. That's more than
700,000 on-the-job eye injuries that
require medical treatment every year,
illustrating that many people do, in fact,
take their vision for granted.

As easy as it is to take vision for granted,
it's just as easy to take steps to protect
your eyes at work. The following tips can
help you avoid becoming one of the
hundreds of thousands of people who will
suffer a work-related eye injury this year.

* Identify what can be a problem. It's
easy to get used to a routine and ignore
potential workplace hazards. However,
projectiles such as concrete, metal, dust,
wood, and other particles can all cause
significant damage to your eyes. Other
culprits include splashes from chemicals
and flames and even radiation. But
wearing proper eye protection can keep
workers safe from any of these potential
eye hazards.

* Identify which professions are high risk.

While everyone can suffer a work-related
eye injury, some professions are higher
risks than others. Such professions include
construction, mining, manufacturing,
plumbing, welding, and auto repair. If you
work in any of those professions, it's best
to exercise extra caution when protecting
your eyes.

* Identify the proper eye protection. Risk
of eye injury not only differs depending
on profession, but it can also be higher or
lower depending on certain tasks within a
given profession as well. For those who
work in especially hazardous
environments, it's possible to use several
different types of eye protection
depending on what a given task is. In
general, the following safety precautions
are applicable, but it's also important to
consult a safety manual before beginning
any of the following tasks:

- when working in areas with flying
objects, particles or dust, wear safety
glasses that feature side shields

- whenever working with chemicals, be
sure to wear safety goggles that will
protect both the fronts and sides of eyes
from splashing chemicals
- when working near radiation (i.e.,
welding or working with lasers or fiber
optics) use specially made safety glasses,
goggles, face shields, or spcci.'ll helmets,
such as welding helmets (Note: local laws
typically mandate the above-mentioned
safety glasses and other items are readily
available to workers, so don't be afraid to
ask.)


* Don't assume your eyes are safe sitting
at a desk. Many office workers also suffer
from eye injuries. While these might not
be as obvious as chemicals splashing into
the eye or dirt or dust getting in, that
doesn't mean eye injuries suffered while
sitting at a desk can't be just as harmful.
When working in an office slin.ii. be sure
to give your eyes regular breaks and set
your computer monitor at a safe distance
and height to lessen eye strain.

To learn more about on-the-job eye safety,
visit the American Optometric Association
Web site at www.aoa.org

Monday, opening arguments began in the Hannons'civil suit against Shands Teaching Hospital, Shands Live Oak and Shands Healthcare. "This case is about Nathan developing an ordinary problem with his shunt Ñ a problem that was easily treatable," said James W. Gustafson Jr., attorney for the family, in his opening argument. On October 28, 1999, Nathan first complained to his father of a headache and vomiting. His symptoms lasted into the next day. The next morning Nathan was taken to a Shands clinic in Live Oak, Gustafson said, and was later advised to go to Shands at Live Oak for lab work and a CTscan.

A: The American Dental Association recommends that a child see a dentist within six months after the eruption of the first baby tooth. Bear in mind that baby teeth, also called primary teeth, are as important as the permanent teeth to follow. Generally primary teeth start showing up betw een the ages of six months and a year. Not only do the teeth help a child chew and speak, they are placeholders for the permanent teeth that are developing under them. Baby teeth can develop cavi ties, just as permanent teeth can. Once an infant's diet contains anything other than breast milk, the new teeth are at risk for decay, sometimes called early-childhood caries or baby-bottle tooth decay. A visit to the dentist with a toddler is also an oppor tunity for a parent to get a demonstrati on from the dentist on how to care for the child's mouth and how to show the child what to do. The dentist can also assess whether a thumb-sucking habit is having a harmful impact on a child's teeth. Also, the sooner y our child starts becoming comfortable in the dental office environment, the better it will be for him or her as they age. Talk with your dentist about your child's dental health.Presented as a service to the community by 571101-FASK DR. MANTOOTH362-6556 (800) 829-6506HERBERT C.

Photos:Jeff Waters Submitted The Confederacy took over the Suwannee County Historical Museum Saturday. Members of the First Florida Company C, Second Battalion of Hardy's Brigade set up camp in front of the museum for the second annual "Road to Olustee" event sponsored by the museum. They welcomed between 75-100 guests during the event. Portrayed as a living history event, and not a reenactment, this gathering was a welcomed educational opportunity for the Suwannee County community. Visitors were encouraged to step inside an authentic Civil War tent and given the opportunity to handle some of the equipment that would have been used by the Confederate soldiers of 1864. Participating in this event were Private James Johansen (age 16), Private Tyler Dasilva (14) and Private Zach Pennington (14). Also on hand were the Ladies of Luraville, dressed in period costume. Local author and historian Eric Musgrove was also in attendance offering his books for sale and expertise in historical accounts and records. Eric serves as a valued member of the Suwannee County Historical Commission, a museum volunteer, and is employed by the Suwannee County Clerk's Office. The event came to a close with a Confederate takeover of Grace Manor restaurant, complete with the confiscation of the Union flag. The troops and the ladies reconvened on the grounds of the historic Thomas Dowling house. The group was welcomed by a full house of restaurant guests, and provided an educational opportunity while guests were waiting to be seated. Grace Manor staff was gracious in accommodating the soldiers and the Ladies of Luraville. Also participating was Richard Wright of Colonial Photography offering his services for professional portraits with the soldiers and the Luraville ladies. Plans are being made for next year's event. "I hope that we can become a part of the bigger picture of events that lead up to the actual battle of Olustee re-enactment in Lake City," said Randy Torrance, event chairman and Museum executive director. "I am grateful that these young men and the ladies of Luraville were willing to come out and help with this event. At first, it looked as though that this year's event was not going to happen, but thanks to everyone involved, we were able to pull it off for a second year." Torrance also wishes to remind everyone that the official reenactment of the 1864 battle of Olustee will take place on Sunday at the Olustee State Park, east of Lake City at 1:30 and that the city of Lake City will host downtown festival events beginning on Friday, Feb. 11. Full event details can be found at www.olusteefestival.com. The Suwannee County Historical Museum is 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.

Every day 77 million children use the Internet and, of children ages 10-17, one out of every seven will be sexually solicited online. In 2007, Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum's Cyber Safety Education Program debuted at middle and high schools across the state, including our own Suwannee Middle and High School and Branford High School. During the interactive 50-minute presentation, students learn about the risks of and tactics used by online predators as well as what constitutes a cyber crime and how to report it. The program is presented by specially trained members of the Attorney General's team. The Attorney General's office now has a team that teaches parents how to identify potential threats that could endanger their child as well as important tips and safety measures. It is designed with parents in mind as they pursue their primary responsibility of protecting the youngest members of their family.

From left: Brian Barker and Sean Crawford. Courtesy photo In four days, residents of Advent Christian Village collected more than 300 pair of shoes that were sent to Haiti via Southwest Airlines. Residents used this project to express their concern for the devastating conditions in Haiti following a monumental earthquake. ACVConcerned Citizens group, under the leadership of Charlotte and Ken Manuel, sponsored the project. Concerned Citizens is a group of ACVresidents who meet monthly educating themselves on governmental issues, especially preserving the integrity of the U.S. Constitution. By Sherryl Huseonica Wally Marin, SCREC Education Chairman, put out the call for "Shoes for Haiti" only about a week ago, and the response was overwhelming. The generous folks in Suwannee County who gather for the monthly Republican meeting have responded in a big way. Wally had asked everyone to bring donated shoes to the Republican Executive Committee general meeting on Thursday, Feb. 4 at Live Oak City Hall. There were about 70 in attendance. The Advent Christian Village residents alone had collected over 300 pairs of shoes under the guidance of Precinct 9 Committeeman and woman, Ken and Charlotte Manuel. Those shoes, combined with the rest that were collected at the meeting on Feb. 4, added up to about 30 large garbage bags full! Wally went to Gainesville on Friday to deliver the shoes for a flight that was leaving for Haiti. Thanks to all those who were able to donate shoes and be a blessing to others during a time of great need. Marine Corps Pvt. Joshua A. Coulter, son of Terri Skinner of Live Oak, recently completed 12 weeks of basic training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S.C. designed to challenge new Marine recruits both physically and mentally. Coulter and fellow recruits began their training at 5 a.m., by running three miles and performing calisthenics. In addition to the physical conditioning program, Coulter spent numerous hours in classroom and field assignments that included learning first aid, uniform regulations, combat water survival, marksmanship, hand-to-hand combat and assorted weapons training. They performed close order drill and operated as a small infantry unit during field training. Coulter and other recruits also received instruction on the Marine Corps'core values Ñ honor, courage and commitment, and what the core values mean in guiding personal and professional conduct. Coulter and fellow recruits ended the training phase with The Crucible, a 54-hour, team evolution culminating in an emotional ceremony in which recruits are presented the Marine Corps Emblem, and addressed as "Marines" for the first time in their careers.Join us for the 2010 Relay for Life of Suwannee Team Captains Partyviolence, poss -20 grams marjiuana, vop bond revocation, poss cocaine w/i sell, sale cocaine w/i 1000'ch, 1st app pd appt per wrs SCSODTF F.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Odd Even U U new new Odd EvenU U new new WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 6ANorth FloridaBy Jim Holmes I really like dogs. Always have. That doesn't mean I hate cats. In fact, we currently have four felines living in and around our barn. And based upon our history, there is the distinct possibility that number will grow, assuming some new stray finds its way to our home. But I've never become as attached to any cat as I have some dogs. I guess that should come as no surprise, as dogs have been my constant companions since before I could even turn over in my crib. In fact, one of the earliest stories I heard dealt with me napping outside on a summer afternoon when a rat darted from behind a wood pile toward my blanket ... only to meet its maker thanks to the family dog. I recently started thinking about the big role "man's best friend" has played in my life thanks to a dog calendar given to me for Christmas. Quotes are printed throughout. One is by author, Milan Kundera, who wrote, "Dogs are our link to paradise." I'm not sure I'd go that far, because if that is the case, in my paradise I will own nothing but chewed-up slippers and shoes and I'll always have to watch where I walk while outside, for fear of stepping in something. But canines are special. We have three. Scooter Ñ a seemingly fearless, frighteningly intelligent, three pound Yorkie Ñ is our "house dog" and both my wife and I are crazy about him. I just wish I could convince Lynda to stop dressing him up in brightly colored sissy shirts and then taking him out in public. I swear when we are out like that and I look Scooter in the eye, he is begging me to rescue him from his predicament before some other member of the canine species sees him! Our other two dogs live in my barn-workshop (which is heated) and are slightly bigger. Daisy is a 130-pound English Mastiff, while Royce is her French cousin who tips in at a mere 110. Both were adopted from folks who found the breed too large to keep in their homes. But mastiffs do have one drawback. Their mouths are like upside down drinking fountains, where the slobbering flow never ceases. Having said that, they are wonderful animals to own when you live out in the country. You see, they are very protective without being high strung or overly aggressive. I seem to be the center of their universe. That's particularly true with Daisy, who you will always see at my side when I'm out-of-doors. That's fine, except when I need to use my gas-powered, fire engine red (my granddaughter picked the color) golf cart. If I'm in it, she sees no reason why she shouldn't be sitting on the seat next to me. Talk about an odd couple; an old bearded fat man in a beat-up straw hat driving along his fence line with this giant yellow dog snuggled next to him ... her head propped on his shoulder like she's some lovesick teenager. I've actually had passing motorists stop their vehicles just to take in this ridiculous sight. It gives a whole different meaning to that old movie title, "Driving Miss Daisy." There is only one problem. My Miss Daisy enjoys driving our fire engine red golf cart as much as riding in it. So when I get out, I have learned the hard way to turn the ignition off. Otherwise, Daisy sits on the throttle and off she goes ... this old fat man frantically racing Ñ OK, frantically waddling Ñ to catch-up with her. I wouldn't care that much, except like most of the leggy blondes I have known, my Miss Daisy "pushes the petal to the metal" and pays little or no attention to where she is going! 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 letter and discuss any questions about it with you. Members of the Suwannee Democrat editorial board are Myra C.Regan, publisher, and Robert Bridges, editor.Our View, which appears in Friday editions of the Democrat, is formed by that board.Suwannee DemocratMYRA C.REGAN Publisher ROBERT BRIDGES Editor THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLERV iewpoints/Opinions Driving Miss Daisy BIBLE VERSE"W e ought always to thank God for you, brothers, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love every one of you has for each other is increasing." 2 Thessalonians 1:3 "Do you mean he is taller than me am?" sarcastically barked Dr. Martin Rosenberg, my high school English teacher, to one of the students in our class. The student actually said, "He is taller than me," but Rosenberg was ridiculing the student's grammar. The subject of the elliptical (or understood) verb "am" must be in the subjective case. Thus, the correct form of the sentence is: He is taller than I. This correction/dressing down of a student, that occasionally included me, occurred during my attendance at North Philadelphia's Benjamin Franklin High School in the early Ô50s. Franklin was predominantly black; its students were poor or low middle class. On top of that, Franklin had just about the lowest academic standing in the city. All of our teachers, except two or three, were white. Despite the fact that we were poor, most of Franklin's teachers held fairly high standards and expectations. Today, high standards and expectations, at some schools, would mean trouble for a teacher. Teachers, as pointed out in one teaching program, are encouraged to "Recognize and understand the cultural differences among students from diverse backgrounds, and treat such differences with respect. Intervene immediately, should a fellow student disparage a Black student's culture or language." That means if a black student says, "I be wiff him" or "He axed me a question," teachers shouldn't bother to correct the student's language. What's more, should anyone disparage or laugh at the way the student speaks, the teacher should intervene in his defense. Correcting the student's speech might be deemed as insensitive to diversity at best and racism at worst, leading possibly to a teacher's reprimand, termination and possibly assault. Ateacher's job is to teach and failure to correct a student's speech, just as failure to correct a math error, is a dereliction of duty. You might say, "Williams, Ebonics or black English is part of the cultural roots of black people and to disparage it is racism." That's utter nonsense. During the 1940s and 1950s, I lived in North Philadelphia's Richard Allen housing project, along with its most famous resident, Bill Cosby. We all were poor or low middle class but no one spoke black English. My wife was the youngest of 10 children. Listening to her brothers and sisters speak, compared to many of her nieces and nephews, you wouldn't believe they were in the same family. The difference has nothing to do with cultural roots of black people. The difference is that parents, teachers and others in authority over youngsters have become less judgmental, politically correct and lazy; therefore, speaking poorly is accepted. Language is our tool of communication. If a person has poor oral language skills, he's likely to have poor writing, reading and comprehension skills. To my knowledge, there are no books in any field of study written in Ebonics or black English. It is very likely that a person with poor language skills will suffer significant deficits in other areas of academic competence such as mathematics and the sciences. It doesn't mean that the person is unintelligent; it means that he doesn't have all the tools of intelligence. That is what's so insidious about the state of black education today; so many blacks do not have a chance to develop the tools of intelligence. Many might have high native intelligence but come off sounding like a moron. Black Americans should thank God that non-judgmental, politically correct people weren't around during the early civil rights movement when blacks began breaking discriminatory barriers. Discriminatory employers would have had ready-made excuses not to hire a black as a trolley car motorman, cashier or department store sales clerk. There are some significant challenges to being judgmental and politically incorrect and insisting on proper language. Aprofessor or teacher can get cursed out by students or parents. Ablack student who speaks well, carries books and studies can be accused of "acting white" and find himself shunned and assaulted by other students. I would be interested in hearing the teaching establishment's defense of permitting poor language. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.

Our Small Business Economic Trends monthly report, which has tracked small business conditions for more than 35 years, shows that small business owners nationwide are struggling to keep their doors open. Optimism among small business owners declined in the latest report as small business owners experienced weak sales and negative earnings. In addition, capital spending is sitting on the sidelines. Plans to make capital expenditures over the next few months are near the 35-year record low, as is the demand for credit to finance such projects. And small business owners continue to cut more jobs than they create, a trend that must be reversed in order for our economy to start thriving again. To put the current conditions in perspective, the numbers we're seeing now are lower than they were in the 1981-82 recession, and have been that way for many more months. The fact that the Obama administration is considering extending the 2001 and 2003 tax rates is a welcome step in the right direction. Raising taxes is never a good idea when the economy is trying to recover from a recession. Furthermore, the vast majority of small business owners pay their taxes at the individual level so allowing the 2001 and 2003 lower tax rates to stay in place will benefit those businesses. It will also give small business some sense of certainty they can depend on as they make critical decisions about expanding their business. Seventy-five percent of small business owners think that now is not a good time to expand their business. And when asked what is the most important reason influencing their plans for expansion, political climate ranks second with only economic conditions receiving more votes. There is uncertainty over how numerous legislative initiatives from Washington will impact the cost of running a business, causing too many small business owners to conclude that they just can't afford to take the risk to expand their business or hire new employees. If elected leaders want small business owners to resume their traditional role as our nation's job creators, they must realize that uncertainty over their legislative agenda is impeding job growth. We sincerely hope that the administration keeps in the budget released this week a permanent extension of the 2001 and 2003 tax rates. We urge Congress to pass a budget that includes the lower tax rates. This would ensure that small business owners can adequately plan for the future and keep more of their own money to invest in their businesses. Uncertainty is the enemy of economic growth. If the administration and Congress truly want to help put small businesses, they should alleviate small business owners' fears over taxes as well as job-threatening cap-and-trade and card-check legislation, which should be eliminated from Washington's domestic agenda. Only by creating a climate in which entrepreneurs have confidence in our country's direction will we be able to turn this economy back down the path to growth and prosperity.

Those who have young children are faced with the daunting task of finding qualified, appropriate childcare for their preschoolers while they head off into the business world. Single parents also find themselves in the same predicament. Who will take care of my children? What they all want, of course, is assurance that whoever they designate to care for their children will do so with loving care and professionalism. The owners of Love-N-Care Preschool in Branford are well aware of those parents' wishes and say they welcome the opportunity to prove themselves as the best place in town to care for your precious cargo. Back in 1986, Love-N-Care was the very first preschool to open in the town of Branford and for the past 24 years they have been proudly serving the community. It all started in a rented By Ana Smith BRRRRRRR!!! I was hoping for some much warmer weather while my friend Mary Goldsmith was in town, but we managed to get out and have some fun despite the cold. Last weekend we enjoyed "The Hoggetowne Medieval Faire" in Gainesville, although the winds in the morning were almost enough to blow us away. We both had looked forward to that event since it was first announced in the newspaper. and we were not disappointed. My favorite part of the day was the 'human chess game' between Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham, and I applaud all the people who took part in that game. It was as much entertainment as watching a live play anywhere. Mary also visited with some old friends, like Debbie Brown and her family, even had her hair done by Debbie's daughter, Marlene, then spent some time with old friend Melvin Hurley. Mary also got to say hello to some of her friends at Evergreen Baptist Church, and I want to thank each member there last Sunday for their warm welcome and to say the bread they shared with us was delicious. Mary's visit was much too short, but we had a good time. I'm hoping the next time we get together it will be when I can make a trip up to her part of the country, Owensboro, Ky. This weekend marks the annual "Sweetheart Banquet" at O'Brien Baptist Church hosted by the men of the O'Brien Brotherhood. It will be held in the fellowship hall starting at 6 p.m., and this is always a fun time with games for some of the couples and lots of good food. Everyone in our community is invited to join with us. Bring your 'sweetie' and a pot luck dish to share, and be prepared for some good, wholesome Christian fun. Hope I see you there! The seminar on diabetes being held at the Suwannee County Extension Office is proving to be a real source of good information. I'm learning a lot more about my diabetes than I expected because I thought I had learned it all between Harold's condition and my own. This class is more than worth the cost, and the new information is proving to be very important. Only two classes have been held so far, and these classes will continue until March 25, so if you are diabetic or have a The McAlpin Advent Christian Church will participate in a forty day devotional, scriptural prayer guide called, "Seek God for the City." From the forty days, not counting Sundays, beginning on Feb. 17 through Palm Sunday (March 28), the church members will use the daily devotional containing prayers of biblical hope to seek the Lord's guidance during Lent. "We have enough prayer guides on hand to give to any visitor during the Lenten season," said Pastor Paul A. Bertolino. "This is so important to us and we want to include as many as possible from our community and Suwannee County. All children will receive a daily devotional corresponding with the adults so families can learn to pray together." The church is also planning to begin a membership/baptism class on Feb. 21 at 9:45 a.m. and will be team taught by the pastor and the Rev. Dr. David Dean. Dr. Dean's book, Resurrection Hope, will be used for the class and is free to all that attend. For further information, call the Pastor at 386-6581048.

"Someone has calculated that we have 35 million laws on the books to enforce the Ten Commandments." "Time change: In the old days, no one asked how many miles a horse did on a bundle of hay."

He literally could not lay his head down to rest, a point noted by both parties in the case Monday. After an early misdiagnosis by doctors, the Hannons learned that Nathan had hydrocephalus, a condition in which fluid builds up in the cavities of the brain causing cranial pressure that often leads to other neurological disorders. Surgeons inserted a shunt in his brain to drain the excess fluid from his head down past his chest where it could be reabsorbed. He maintained an active and generally normal lifestyle after the operation, with some incidents over the years Ñ including a shunt replacement at age five, Gustafson said. John Jopling, attorney for the defense, noted in his opening statement that Nathan had undergone an additional surgery in 1993, at age 9, in which the shunt was replaced yet again after a fracture was discovered in the device.• • •"Mama, make me comfortable," were Nathan's words to his mother as she rode beside him in the back of the family van on I-75 headed to Gainesville, Gustafson told jurors Monday. "That's when Yvette looked down, and saw that Nathan's lips had turned blue." Acall was placed to 9-1-1, and Rick Hannon pulled off to the side of the road. Yvette began performing mouth-tomouth resuscitation on her son, waiting for rescue to arrive, Gustafson said. Once Nathan was transferred into an ambulance, the Hannons Rick, youngest son Ricky and Yvette traveled the rest of the way to Gainesville to be at Nathan's side. Avigil began at his bedside. According to Gustafson, "The doctor asked, has anyone told the parents that he's brain dead?" with Yvette standing in the room. "That's how the family found out. Nathan Hannon suffered brain death on Oct. 29 in the back seat of the family car in his mother's arms." Nathan showed the telltale signs of emergent distress on that final day, Gustafson argued. The doctors and physicians in Live Oak weren't in the dark about his shunt, Gustafson said. "If a doctor examines a patient and sees signs of a shunt malfunction, it is that doctor's responsibility to contact a neurosurgeon immediately," Gustafson said. "A shunt malfunction is an emergency. You don't delay transfer of a patient for a CT scan, you get the patient to a neurosurgeon. Nathan's vital signs were never even checked. There was reckless disregard Ñ they knew or should have known that Nathan's condition was emergent, not just urgent." Still, Gustafson argued, "no one took responsibility for the patient." Nathan was considered an outpatient of the clinic, even though Shands as an entity "had no policy for when a physician's assistant was the one placing the calls to a neurosurgeon Ñ neither the clinic physician nor the hospital doctor at Shands (Live Oak) took the responsibility for the patient," according to Gustafson. "It was an unwritten rule between the clinic and the hospital Ñ a negligent system," Gustafson suggested. "No healthcare provider made a phone call to a neurosurgeon. No one was managing Nathan's care Ñ he was falling through the cracks. It was Yvette Hannon who finally made that call," Gustafson said. "They're suing Shands for three reasons: Its employee failed to manage the care of the patient; there was a poorly planned system set up where no one is responsible; and Shands takes no responsibility whatsoever for Nathan's death." Christian Searcy, Gustafson's co-counsel approached the jury. "Their precious 15-year-old son who they loved more than life died on Friday afternoon on the side of the road." He mentioned the psychological effects the Hannons have experienced as a result of the tragedy, which included depression, post-traumatic stress, and more. Both Hannons steadily wiped tears from their eyes during the course of the opening. "Yvette will never forget looking down and seeing that her son's lips were blue. And, how she pressed her mouth to his, trying to breath life back into her son," said Searcy, returning to his seat.• • •"In our view the story starts a bit earlier than the plaintiffs have stated," defense attorney Jopling told jurors. He mentioned the various shunt replacement surgeries Nathan had endured during the course of his life, including the additional fracture and replacement when Nathan was nine. "Between 1994 to 1999, he was free of symptoms," Jopling said. "Then came the trip to Colorado." Nathan Hannon had traveled with his Boy Scout troop to camp at the end of July 1999, returning shortly before school started in early August, Jopling said. While on the trip, Nathan began experiencing symptoms similar to those he had experienced in the previous instances involving possible shunt malfunctions: Continued From Page 1A "headaches, vomiting nausea," Jopling explained. Nathan was taken to an area hospital and examined by a physician, and later a neurospecialist, who advised: "He is to be seen in his clinic when he returns home," Jopling explained, showing medical discharge sheets from Parkview Medical Center in Colorado. Jopling argued that Nathan never had a follow-up with a neurosurgeon when he returned to Florida. Jopling said, he intended later in the trial to call as a witness Bob Pinello, a former co-worker of Yvette Hannon's, who would testify that "Yvette told him that Nathan would need to be seen by a neurosurgeon once back in Florida."• • •Jopling said that "around 5 p.m. on Thursday Oct. 28, 1999, everything was going fine. Nathan attended a JVfootball game. After the game he threw up (vomited), and complained of a headache." Jopling continued. "Nathan woke up earlier than usual the next morning. He sat on the kitchen floor, and complained to his father of a headache." Shortly after, Nathan was taken to the Shands clinic. There at the clinic Yvette and Nathan ran into Pinello, Jopling said. "He asked Yvette, ÔWhat did the doctor tell you when he had the incident in Colorado? He doesn't need to be here in this clinic, he needs to see a neurosurgeon,'" Jopling said, reiterating his intention to call on Pinello as a witness. Jopling said the case hinges on the question, "Why didn't the doctors and physicians tell the Hannons that Nathan was at risk of death? Answer simply put. They didn't know that. Nothing from what they could tell said that he was in mortal danger," Jopling argued. "They did the one thing in Live Oak they could do Ñ perform a CTScan to see if there was anything irregular." Jopling says a Dr. Spendel at Shands Live Oak, also a witness in the case "will tell you that he had responsibility, but not opportunity to carry through the plan." Jopling said Rick Hannon left the hospital with Nathan before Nathan could be examined there and if necessary, admitted into the ER. "If anybody, including Nathan's parents, or the doctors had that crystal ball to see what was to come, certainly things may have happened differently," Jopling said. "All these folks knew each other. To the doctors and physicians, this was Yvette's boy, they were doing everything in their power to treat Nathan," Jopling said. Yvette Hannon was employed at Shands Live Oak at the time. Dr. Spendel was under the understanding that Yvette had spoken with the neurosurgeon in Gainesville, despite twice suggesting to admit Nathan into the ER in Live Oak, Jopling said. "Spendel wasn't alarmed because nothing from what he could tell was emergent looking at Nathan's symptoms Ñ it wasn't reasonably foreseeable. Negligence is failure to use reasonable care. They were doing everything in their power for Nathan." Testimony in the case was underway at press time. See Friday's Democrat for more, or follow the trial online at suwanneedemocrat.com.

Williams said more equipment will be ordered.

Pharmacy & Your Health 575408-FAspirin for Peripheral Arterial DiseasePeripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a condition characterized by narrowing of the arteries in the legs. A buildup of fatty deposits leads to such narrowing, which impairs normal blood flow. Men are more commonly affected by PAD. Persons with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes are at an increased risk of developing PAD. Those who smoke or are obese are also at an increased risk of developing this condition. Intermittent claudication, a condition that commonly occurs in persons affected by PAD, is an uncomfortable or tired feeling in the legs during walking. This happens because there is not enough blood flowing to the muscles. Persons with PAD who smoke are encouraged to quit. Other conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes, should be treated. Exercise, such as walking several times per week, is also recommended. A healthy diet is usually recommended. Persons with PAD may be prescribed an antiplatelet medication, such as aspirin, aspirin plus dipyridamole ( Aggrenox ), or clopidogrel ( Plavix ). Persons who experience claudication may be prescribed pentoxifylline ( Trental or Pentoxil ) or cilostazol ( Pletal ). These medications work to improve blood flow. An angioplasty, which works to open up the arteries, may be necessary for severely blocked arteries.by Joy Lamb, PharmDDrive-up window Model Name and Comfort Level Queen set$000 REG.

Sixty-one works were featured, including photography, paintings, drawings, sculptures and creative crafts. Twenty-three members of the guild participated in the exhibition judged by local artist Janis Brothers. "I'm thrilled that we have this many wonderful entrees and range of talent," said Janey Rasor, chair of the event. "It's amazing how much great talent we have not only in this group, but in our area." Taking first place honors was Guild member John Rice with his painting entitled "Mert." Second place went to Anda Chance with her piece "Autumn," and third place was awarded to Nell Moores for her stitching "Doves Eyes and Bars." Eileen Box was awarded the merit award for her work "Golden Reflection." Best of show was awarded to Jeffrey Smart Baisden for her piece "Adjourned at a Glance." The Suwannee Trio graced the Sunday audience with music. Trio musicians included William Slaughter (bass), Patt Slaughter (violin) and Nancy Allen on piano. "We had a fantastic turnout of artists," said Marlene Mitchell, Guild president. "It was a wonderful show. We would also like to thank the Suwannee River Regional Library for the use of the facility and their continued support of the arts." Featured artwork will be displayed at the public library until Feb. 12. Folks enjoy the exhibit of Artist's Guild members-only artwork at the Suwannee River Regional Library Sunday.

"The next step is to negotiate a contract with Airth," Commissioner Jesse Caruthers said Monday. "If that's not successful we go to the guy in Perry. So we'll just go through negotiations and see what happens." Airth is seeking a raise from $100 an hour to $125 an hour and is asking that his retainer fee be raised from $18,000 to $20,000. "I think he's entitled to it," said Commissioner Douglas Udell. "He's good here. He may not be prompt all the time, but neither am I nor are any other commissioners." The last time Airth received a raise was four years ago when his hourly fee was raised from $75 to $100 an hour. "County commissioners have received raises, but the attorney has only received the one," said Udell. Airth has served as county attorney since 1996.County attorney keeps job, seeks raiseContinued From Page 1A "I am a member of many groups and organizations, on the local, regional and state levels, who work to improve life in our community," he said. "I often go into the schools and read or visit classes and present programs about city government. I have hosted many classes at City Hall for programs." Nobles says he does not limit his service to what is called for in the City Charter. "I do whatever it takes to improve the quality of life for our citizens." Added Nobles, "I am the biggest cheerleader Live Oak and Suwannee County has. I promote and lift up our community and always present a positive attitude toward my community and its people." Whether it is through his Mayor's Corner, published in the Suwannee Democrat , or personal contacts, he says he lets everyone know there is not a better place to live or any better and more caring people anywhere. Nobles says he has served as an outstanding ambassador of our Live Oak and the Suwannee County community. "I am well known and respected throughout the region and state," he said. "My influence has been invaluable in getting things done for our community and acquiring many millions of dollars for projects and programs for improvements in our community." Nobles said he serves as a watchdog over the city. "I have made sure the city is operated in an efficient, conservative and cost effective manner." As Mayor, he is charged with making sure the city, state and federal laws are enforced. "I have made sure the laws and policies are enforced and applied equally to all," he said. Nobles says his leadership is unquestionable. "I have provided mature and invaluable leadership as Mayor of Live Oak. My leadership, guidance and support has put the city in a position to meet the needs of Live Oak for many years in the future." He points to all the things that are going on in the city. "The city is in a posture to serve and meet the needs of businesses and companies that desire to come to our community and bring jobs for our citizens and provide a greater tax base for our governments," Nobles said. "With the sewer system upgrade, reuse capabilities, two new sewer plants and the drinking water system upgrade, everything will be in place to attract and service business and industry. The city is ready when they want to come. The prison is a perfect example. Without the city's sewer and water, the prison would not have been able to locate here and we would have lost the 800 jobs the prison will eventually provide. I am proud to say that the cost of much of the recent improvements in the city has been paid for with grants or low interest loans. This is not something that just happens. I, along with staff have worked hard to capture this money, saving our residents tens of millions of dollars." Nobles states that economic development has been a main goal during his tenure as Mayor. "I work very closely with the Chamber in support of business development activities. I am in continuous contact with the Chamber giving support and encouragement". Nobles asserts he is responsive to all that call on him for help or advice. "When a citizen comes to me for assistance or advice about a situation, I give it my full attention" He says his attitude has always been that if it is important to them, it's important to him. "I help anyone with anything as long as it is in accord with the laws and policies of the city." He added, "I have a proven record of service to this community and I stand on that record."Nobles will seek re-election as MayorContinued From Page 1A Man attacked ATM customer with knife weeks after release from prison for carjackingQuinton Lee Woods with attorney James Janousek. Photo: Carnell Hawthorne Jr. By Car nell Ha wthor ne Jr .car nell.hawthor ne@gaflnews.comQuinton Lee Woods, 21, of Live Oak was sentenced to 30 years in prison by Judge Paul Bryan in a Suwannee County courtroom Thursday. During a two-day jury trial in Decem-Armed robbery attempt nets 30-year sentence ber Woods was found guilty of attempted robbery while armed with a deadly weapon and of driving without a license. Woods was arrested Feb. 3, 2009 after trying to rob a man at a drive-through ATM outside First Federal Bank the night before. According to reports, as the victim was preparing to drive away, Woods reached through the open window and placed the knife at the victim's neck, demanding money. The victim accelerated from the scene and escaped harm. Woods then fled south on foot and entered a black Dodge Magnum. The victim and witness attempted to follow Woods but lost his trail. About an hour later, a sheriff's deputy stopped a vehicle matching the description of the one Woods had entered. Woods was identified by the victim and was arrested. He had been in jail ever since. Just weeks before the February 2009 incident, Woods had been released from prison after four years in Jefferson Correctional Institution for carjacking with a firearm, robbery with a firearm, grand theft auto and fleeing and eluding a law enforcement officer. He remained on probation for those crimes committed in Broward County in 2004, and still faces an additional penalty. Thursday, Quinton Woods'mother, Sabrina Woods, pleaded with the judge for leniency for her son. "He's not a bad child," she said. "He just needs a second chance. Really, I need a second chance," she said, referring to her son's upbringing. However, it wasn't enough to sway Judge Bryan from levying the maximum 30-year penalty, with a 10-year-minimum mandatory sentence for the armed robbery. Under count two, no driver's license, Woods was sentenced to 60 days in the Suwannee County Jail, but received jail credit. The motion for a new trial and a request for a furlough were both denied. Woods has 30 days to appeal.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Odd Even U U new new Odd EvenU U new new WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 6BNorth Florida Staff Along-time North Carolina State University faculty member has been named associate dean for research for N.C. State's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and director of the College's North Carolina Agricultural Research Service. Dr. David Smith, Philip Morris Professor and formerly head of N.C. State's Department of Crop Science, succeeds Dr. Sylvia Blankenship, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences associate dean for administration, who was serving as interim Research Service director. In addition, Dr. Steven Lommel, interim associate dean for research, has been active in administering the day-today operation of the Research Service. Smith's father, the late husband Dr. W.C. (Bill) Smith, was Suwannee County Agricultural Extension Director from 1973 to 1988, when he retired. Smith's mother is Johnnie Ruth Smith. The Agricultural Research Service is the research arm of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, with oversight responsibility for close to $130 million in research expenditures annually. Smith joined the N.C. State faculty in 1981 as a North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service tobacco specialist in the Department of Crop Science. He was named interim department head in 2006 and permanent head a year later. Crop science is one of the largest departments in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Smith holds a Ph.D. in crop science from N.C. State University, while both his master's and bachelor's degrees are from the University of Florida. Both degrees are in agronomy. The majority of Smith's career has been spent working with North Carolina's flue-cured and burley tobacco growers and Cooperative Extension agents as Extension tobacco specialist, although he served for two years, from 1994 to 1996, as Crop Science Department extension leader and associate department head. He was named Philip Morris Professor in 2000. In the late 1980s, Smith led extension educational efforts and research programs that aided North Carolina tobacco growers in transitioning to a method of growing young tobacco plants in greenhouses. The so-called transplants are then moved to fields. This system is now used by all the state's tobacco growers. Smith's tobacco research and demonstration efforts also helped growers increase transplant survival and dramatically reduce fertilizer usage and cost. Smith said his overarching goal as Research Service director will be to provide an infrastructure that will allow individual faculty members to be successful. "We have a diverse faculty in terms of the scientific disciplines that faculty members represent, yet all our faculty have one thing in common," Smith said. "We are all here to support North Carolina citizens and to work toward improving the quality of life in the state and beyond." Smith assumes leadership of the Research Service at a time of budget difficulty throughout state government, and the Research Service is no different. Smith said his most immediate challenge as Research Service director will be to manage research funding in a manner that will continue to support the creativity of College faculty. He added that a priority will be filling a vacant associate director position with a person with the expertise needed to support faculty who are pursuing diverse scientific interests.Smith's father, the late husband Dr. W.C. (Bill) Smith, was Suwannee County Agricultural Extension Director from 1973 to 1988, when he retired. Smith's mother is Johnnie Ruth Smith. Aliving legacyDr. David SmithCourtesy photoDavid Smith carries on in his father's tradition By Lucille Heinrich & Sherryl Huseonica Winter is a tough time for gardeners, especially with the cold we recently have been experiencing. A wonderful indoor pastime to consider is experimenting with drying flowers. The purpose of drying flowers is to remove the moisture from the flowers while keeping the form and color as original as possible. The tried and true method of hanging flowers down side to dry is not only time and space consuming, but you also need a wellventilated dry space in which to do this. The heavy humidity in our area often leads to rotting flowers instead of dried ones. Consider using your microwave to dry flowers instead. Right now you can't run out into your garden to pick flowers, but you can experiment with the process by using your indoor plants or purchasing an inexpensive bouquet at your local supermarket. Pansies, mums, roses, ferns, carnations, poinsettia leaves, and daisies work well. Two methods will be described: 1) using Silica Gel and 2) using microwavable stacking plates. 1) Method #1 Silica Gel (Recommended if you want three dimensional flowers.) Using Silica Gel is easy, but it costs money: You can purchase the silica gel from almost any craft store; it is a sand/crystal-like product which is a chemical that is used as a dehumidifying agent. Select a microwavable container that will fit your flower. Fill the container with about 1-1/2" of the gel, place the flower (remove all but about an inch of the stem) in the gel, and then carefully cover the flower with the gel leaving at least an inch above the flower. Here is where you will need to do a little experimenting. Depending on the power of your microwave and the size of your flower, it will take from 1-1/2 to three minutes or more to completely dry your flower. If your microwave has ten power levels, then use level four; otherwise, try "defrost" level. You will have to experiment with timing and power of your microwave. After the first 1-1/2 minutes, check your flower by carefully pushing back the gel with a pencil or toothpick to see how the process is going. Be careful! Use potholders as it will be hot! After your flower is dry and cooled, carefully remove the gel (use a soft brush to remove gel from the petals) and carefully store your flower in a plastic baggy until you have enough dried flowers to complete your project. Method #2 Stacking microwavable plates (Recommended if you want pressed flowers.) Simply place a double layer of paper towels on a microwavable plate, place your flower or leaf on the paper towel, top with another double layer of power towels, and then another microwavable plate. So you have a stack of: plate paper towels flower paper towels plate. Put the heat on high and microwave for about 40 seconds; delicate petals take only about 20 seconds. Once cool, let the dried flower rest on a dry paper towel for a few minutes. You can reuse the paper towels; just let them dry out. Wipe any moisture collected on the plates between each procedure. This method is good if you simply want pressed flowers and works very well for leaves. Notes: Silica Gel can be used again and again. Used silica gel will turn pink due to the addition of moisture. Bake it in a 250-degree oven until it turns blue again to reuse, that is, if your silica is blue in the beginning. It is not recommended that you put food in containers once they have held silica gel. Keep a notebook handy to record the times and power levels you use as both of these procedures take trial and error. Dried flowers are beautiful in arrangements and attached to wreaths. Save any petals that may come off for use in potpourris. When using in arrangements, simply use floral tape and either toothpicks or floral sticks to give the flower a longer, studier stem. To preserve the flowers, you can spray them with hair spray to help them hold their shape. However, a better option is a flower preserver or acrylic spray for really long lasting flowers. These can last as long as two years! When your flowers are dry, place them in a Ziploc bag to keep moisture from entering again until you are ready to use Florida humidity!

Barberry shrubs are widely used in garden landscapes because of their attractive foliage and deer resistant thorny stems. Keep your shrub well-watered and regularly fertilized, and it will retain its lovely reddish leaves throughout the winter.

Courtesy photoSurrey Place Care Center volunteer recognizedWhy would someone choose to volunteer at a nursing home? If you ask Jim Downs, 78, he would tell you he was thankful to be able to serve. For 18 years, Jim Downs visited Surrey Place Care Center twice a week, calling bingo games. It started when Surrey Place opened over 20 years ago, when his wife, Beth, would come and call Bingo for the residents. After her passing, Jim carried on the tradition in name of her. On Jan. 29, Jim officially handed over the torch to his son-in-law, Mike, who shares his passion in visiting the residents at Surrey Place. To honor Jim, Ellie Curry, Quality of Life Director, created a bingo plaque recognizing him for his countless years of volunteering at the facility. Jim was presented the volunteer plaque, which brought smiles and laughter to the residents and employees. Jim had a special way of making the residents laugh and had a little saying that went along with some of the numbers called. For example for N-44, he would call "Lester" which the saying was "here lies ol' Lester more, 4 slugs from a .44 no Les no more", which was from a tombstone on Boothill in Tombstone, Arizona. Surrey Place Care Center is forever grateful of Jim Downs for his faithfulness and dedication to our residents.

The speaker for this occasion was Mr. Thomas Mitchell, Sr. President-Elect, FAMU National Association and former Harlem Globetrotter. He gave a very informative and interesting message and the congregation seemed to have enjoyed it. In 2008, St. James A.M.E. Church decided that they would honor a person each year that has and continues to perform outstanding community services in Suwannee County yet never seeks money or praise. The 2008 recipient of Dr. King's Award went to Commissioner Douglas Udell. The 2009 recipient was Samuel Beasley. This year the award was given to Mae Devoe Fields, president of the Boys and Girls Club. St. James A.M.E. Church will be celebrating Black History Sunday, Feb. 21 at 4 p.m. The community is invited to attend. This program will be different and very interesting.

If the Colts had entered the Super Bowl an undefeated team, a different mindset would have shown up for both sides. The Colts in fact have not been vindicated for their faux pas. An undefeated season has come around twice in NFLhistory. The Colts choose not to tempt destiny and destiny hath punished them for it. We will have to listen about the 1972 Dolphins apparently forever. I doubt the Colts or any of their players will ever have this opportunity again, and they don't deserve it. The Saints have a Super Bowl championship, something the Vikings, Eagles, and Chargers, but to name a few, came close but no cigar. The Saints will be happy to wear the bull'seye of Champion on their back next season. The Colts can only think of what could have been. Drew Brees was the MVPand how fitting another Purdue quarterback and Super Bowl underdog and MVPLenny Dawson brought the trophy to the podium. Brees was shunned by the Chargers but will probably never have to pay for a meal in New Orleans for the rest of his life. It was an exciting, well played game. This is more then I could say about the commercials, which like the Colts, disappointed a lot of fans.

To make sure the money is channeled properly, the two formed In Motion For a Million, which allows supporters to go online (visit inmotionforamillion.org) and donate, give encouragement, learn about these diseases or just keep up with Steven and Dan during the trip. On Feb. 1, accompanied by a support system of two friends, Steven and Dan set out from St. Augustine on the adventure of their lifetime. They're depending upon the good will and generosity of people along their route to assist with donations for the cause. So far, they've been surprised that not only are people filled with the desire to donate money for awareness, they've donated food, drinks, overnight accommodations, encouragement and more for these young men. Saturday night, six days after the trek began, Steven and Dan and their group found themselves spending the night on the banks of the Suwannee River courtesy of the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak. They were happy to rest after rollerblading 47 highway miles on their sixth day of the coast-to-coast trip. But, Steven, 28, and Dan, 30, aren't typical young people. They aren't worrying about sore muscles or the three and a half months they've each taken off from their regular jobs for this very personal fund-raising trek they expect will try them to their limits. They're committed and dedicated toward raising awareness about leukemia, Hodgkin's lymphoma and Huntington's disease, whatever the cost. So far, they've received gifts of a hotel room for the night, roadside accommodations at Mike's Fruits and Vegetable stand in Hastings, parked overnight at a Citgo service station in Florahome, stayed with a guy named John Anderson (no, not THE John Anderson) who they met near Gainesville, spent the night in High Springs at the Blue Springs Motor Lodge, enjoyed pizza at the B & B convenience store in Wellborn at the end of the sixth day and enjoyed a live band, raised some donations and spent the night on the famous Suwannee River at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, all gifts to the cause! At the Spirit, they had the opportunity to take the stage during the band's break and talk about the purpose for their trip. That five-minute chat resulted in many dollars in donations from patrons enjoying the music. The two men hope this is just the beginning. In just six days, Steven said he they'd raised about $2,000 with more than 3,000 miles to go. On pace to arrive in San Diego April 24, the guys headed west early Sunday morning through Madison, Monticello and on toward Tallahassee and beyond. Steven, an English teacher for K-fourth grade, said he was visiting his cousin and the family's new baby boy in Georgia about two years ago when the idea of rollerblading across America to raise awareness about Huntington's disease came to him while rollerblading. "The thought just popped into my mind," Steven said over the sounds of a live country band playing in the background at the Spirit. "I decided to do it, and that's where Dan came in. Dan's one of the most driven and optimistic people I know." Steven said when he approached Dan, the answer was fast. "Yeah! I'm in!" Dan told Steven. "He said that with a little gleam in his eye," Steven laughed, as Dan grinned from ear to ear. Since both are committed athletes, they put their heads together and spent the next 18 months training for this mammoth exercise in endurance. They also succeeded in getting Dan's friend, Phil, a recently retired police officer, to join them as the driver of the borrowed motor home for the 3,000 mile plus adventure. Also on board is Julie, Dan's friend who is the substitute mother (she's had plenty of experience, she's the mother of six children), chief cook, masseuse and in charge of order during the trip! The Tsunami 2005 motor home was loaned to the two by Dan's friend, who moved out of the motor home and purchased a condo to live in while the guys rollerblade across America in his former "home." Ken also had the motor home embellished with a "wrap," a colorful photo and advertising package covering the entire motor home that lets everyone know about their trip and charity. Rollerblade, a company that produces the rollerblades the two are grinding down daily on the roadways, is sponsoring them by providing all the rollerblades they use during the grueling fundraiser. Steven took a job teaching at a private school in Seoul, Korea to train for the cross-country trip because Seoul is known as the hardest working city in the world, he said. Dan did his training in New York City where he's a production assistant for author James Patterson. "People have been overwhelming nice," Steve said of the trip this far. "That's what it takes to do something like this," Dan chimed in. "Get out there, live your dreams, and make a difference ... today!" is Steven's motto. "Think you can, think you can't; either way, you'll be right." are Dan's words to live by. You can bet Steven's aunt, Betty, who died of Huntington's disease, and Dan's mother, Valerie, who died of Hodgkin's lymphoma, would be proud of the efforts of Steven Feigenbaum and Dan Bowen, two big-city guys who are making other Americans proud. To learn more about Steven and Dan's trek on rollerblades, go to inmotionforamillion.org.

Every day 77 million children use the Internet and, of children ages 10-17, one out of every seven will be sexually solicited online. In 2007, Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum's Cyber Safety Education Program debuted at middle and high schools across the state, including our own Suwannee Middle and High School and Branford High School. During the interactive 50-minute presentation, students learn about the risks of and tactics used by online predators as well as what constitutes a cyber crime and how to report it. The program is presented by specially trained members of the Attorney General's team. The Attorney General's office now has a team that teaches parents how to identify potential threats that could endanger their child as well as important tips and safety measures. It is designed with parents in mind as they pursue their primary responsibility of protecting the youngest members of their family. For more information, resources and tips, visit www.safeflorida.net. Please join us at the First United Methodist Church of Live Oak on Feb. 18 at 6 pm.

For example, I have a BOGO coupon for a jar of peanut butter and I have a $1 coupon for the same brand of peanut butter." A: It's up to your store. To understand why some stores allow it, let's review the wording on each coupon. As we've discussed frequently in my column, each item that we buy is a purchase; each trip through the checkout lane is a transaction. Manufacturer coupons typically state "One per purchase" or "One coupon per item purchased." If your store allows you to use both a BOGO coupon and a $1 coupon on two items, they're interpreting the situation in this way: You are purchasing two jars of peanut butter. Each "one per purchase" coupon is applicable to one jar of peanut butter. You can apply the $1 coupon to the first jar and the BOGO coupon to the second jar. This is a fantastic way to bring down the price of both items! If the jars of peanut butter were on sale for $1.99 each, you would pay 99 cents for your first jar after the $1 coupon was applied Ð and you'd also get the second jar free with the second coupon, resulting in two jars of very inexpensive peanut butter! Be aware, though, that some stores interpret this scenario differently. If they regard the BOGO coupon as applying to the purchase of two items (buying one and getting the second free), they may not allow you to use the $1 coupon. The way they see it, you would be using more coupons than you have "purchases." Technically, this isn't the case. The BOGO coupon truly does apply to the free item (note the space on the coupon for the cashier to enter the sale price of the free product) while the other item is a qualifier to get the second item free. But again, this is an area that's open to interpretation. A similar situation arises with coupons that require a qualifying purchase. Recently, my grocery store had boxes of corn flakes with peel-off coupons attached. The "peelie" coupons stated, "Buy corn flakes and get $2 off any produce item." It's always nice to get some cheap strawberries or bananas to go with those corn flakes, isn't it? But what if I also had a $1 coupon for this brand of corn flakes? Again, how this is handled really is up to your store. One of my local grocers would have no problem with this Ð again, because the $1 coupon is being applied to the corn flakes while the $2 coupon (with corn flakes as a qualifying item) will actually be applied to the produce I choose. The best way to determine how your store will handle this situation is simply by trying. If the register is set to accept both, both coupons will scan. If they don't and the register returns an error, you'll know that your store will not allow you to use both a BOGO coupon and a $1 dollar coupon on two identical products. Look for details on how your store handles various coupons and coupon-related situations, including free or BOGO transactions, in the store's coupon policy.

A: It depends on the type of mistake that you made: • Many mathematical errors are caught in the processing of the tax return itself. • If you did not attach a required schedule, the IRS will contact you and ask for the missing information. • If you did not report all your income or did not claim a credit, you should file an amended or corrected return using Form 1040X (PDF), Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. When filing an amended or corrected return: • Include copies of any schedules that have been changed or any Form W-2 (PDF) you did not include. • Generally, to claim a refund, the Form 1040X (PDF) must be received within three years after the date you filed your original return or within two years after the date you paid the tax, whichever is later. • Please allow the IRS 8-12 weeks to process an amended return.

We are so grateful to Mr. Cooley for generously donating materials and offering his time and guidance." Cooley was named among NFCC's Outstanding Alumni in 2006 and while a student at NFCC studied under former NFCC art instructor Dr. Bill Gardner on an art scholarship. For the past twenty years Cooley and his father Bradley Cooley have devoted their creative abilities to creating amazing sculptures and have earned a reputation for their exceedingly large and realistic sculptures of American Indian subjects and wildlife. The Cooley's lifesize bronze sculpture of famous musician Ray Charles can be seen in Haffye Hays Park in Greenville, Fla. and they have over 40 commissioned monumental and lifesize sculptures in public parks, government grounds, college campuses, museums and corporations in Florida alone. When complete the NFCC sculpture will be permanently located near NFCC's Marshall Hamilton Library (Bldg. 4) a prime location for students and campus visitors alike to enjoy the piece of art. The NFCC Art Club also hopes add landscaping and seating around the sea turtle sculpture which will be around six feet wide. "I think it's really awesome that we, students, can have a physical impact on the campus," said NFCC student Ross Everett.

Clinical trials of a gene therapy for Pompe-related breathing problems in six infants are expected to begin at UF this summer. Writing in Molecular Therapy, scientists with UF's Powell Gene Therapy Center describe how they used a gel to deliver a corrective gene directly to the diaphragms of a mouse model of the disease. In people, Pompe disease is a form of muscular dystrophy that causes extreme muscle weakness and leads to severe breathing difficulty. "In disease treatment we always think prevention is better and easier than reversal, but we don't always have the opportunity to prevent some diseases," said Dr. Barry Byrne, a UF pediatric cardiologist and the director of the Powell Gene Therapy Center. "When we find out that reversal of what could be considered permanent damage is possible, that is extremely encouraging." Children with Pompe disease cannot produce the enzyme acid alpha-glucosidase, or GAA. Without the enzyme, sugars and starches that are stored in the body as glycogen accumulate and destroy muscle cells, particularly those of the heart and respiratory muscles. In the coming gene therapy trial, scientists will incorporate the correct gene to produce GAAinto an adenoassociated virus, which already exists in most people, and inject it into each patient's diaphragm. The intent is to "infect" cells of Pompe patients with the genetic machinery they have been missing since birth. In the latest experiments, UF scientists targeted the Barry Byrne, M.D., PhD, a UF pediatric cardiologist and director of the Powell Gene Therapy Center at the College of Medicine. Photo:Sarah Kiewel/University of Floridadiaphragm an essential muscle for healthy breathing in mice at different stages of the disease. "We were able to provide some level of correction in animals of different ages, but it may be more important that we are able to provide benefit to older ones," said Dr. Cathryn Mah, a UF assistant professor of pediatrics. "Many Pompe patients are older children and adults. The longer people have the disease, the weaker their muscles get. Respiratory complications are their No. 1 problem. If we can get some improvement for them, this is worthwhile to keep pursuing." Byrne believes gene therapy is a way to augment the current treatment for Pompe patients, which involves intravenous infusions to replace the missing GAAenzyme. Efforts to find a treatment for Pompe disease, some of them based on the work of UF's gene therapy and pediatric doctors, are depicted in Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Geeta Anand's book "The Cure." The book became the basis of the film "Extraordinary Measures" starring Harrison Ford and Brendan Fraser. Byrne provided technical advice to the producers during filming and has a brief moment as an extra in a scene with Fraser. The film depicts the true story of John and Aileen Crowley, whose two youngest children were diagnosed with Pompe disease. Faced with no options, John Crowley quit his job as a marketing executive and started a biotechnology company, Novazyme Pharmaceuticals Inc., which was eventually purchased by Genzyme Corp. Acure has yet to be found, but Byrne is hopeful that advances can be made to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. "We think the gene therapy aspect will work alongside the traditional treatment," said Byrne, who is also a member of the UF Genetics Institute. "In chemotherapy, a combination of treatments is used to benefit the patient, and we hope this will work in the same way." Other members of the UF research team include Paul Reier, a professor of neuroscience in the College of Medicine; and David Fuller, an assistant professor of physical therapy in the College of Public Health and Health Professions. The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health and American Heart Association. The University of Florida has patents involving delivery of genes using adeno-associated viruses.UF researchers continue extraordinary measures to tackle Pompe disease

Participants in the free event will join tens of thousands of volunteers counting birds in their own backyards, local parks or wildlife refuges. Each checklist submitted by these "citizen scientists" helps researchers at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology , the National Audubon Society, and Bird Studies Canada learn more about how the birds are doing-and how to protect them. Last year, participants turned in more than 93,600 checklists online, creating the continent's largest instantaneous snapshot of bird populations ever recorded. "Taking part in the Great Backyard Bird Count is a great way to get outside with family and friends, have fun, and help birds-all at the same time," said Audubon Education Vice President, Judy Braus. "Even if you can identify a few species you can provide important information that enables scientists to learn more about how the environment is changing and how that affects our conservation priorities." Anyone can take part in the Great Backyard Bird Count, from novice bird watchers to experts. Participants count birds for as little as 15 minutes (or as long as they wish) on one or more days of the event and report their sightings online at www.birdcount.org. One 2009 participant said, "Thank you for the opportunity to participate in citizen science. I have had my eyes opened to aThe Great Backyard Bird CountComing soon:whole new interest and I love it!" "The GBBC is a perfect first step toward the sort of intensive monitoring needed to discover how birds are responding to environmental change," said Janis Dickinson, Director of Citizen Science at the Cornell Lab.

Unless an individual was born with a need for eyeglasses or has suffered an eye injury, chances are that individual takes his or her vision for granted. While it's human nature to do so, it's also potentially very dangerous. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), rougly 2,000 American workers sustain job-related eye injuries each day. T hat's more than 700,000 on-the-job eye injuries that require medical treatment every year, illustrating that many people do, in fact, take their vision for granted. As easy as it is to take vision for granted, it's just as easy to take steps to protect your eyes at work. The following tips can help you avoid becoming one of the hundreds of thousands of people who will suffer a work-related eye injury this year. * Identify what can be a problem. It's easy to get used to a routine and ignore potential workplace hazards. However, projectiles such as concrete, metal, dust, wood, and other particles can all cause significant damage to your eyes. Other culprits include splashes from chemicals and flames and even radiation. But wearing proper eye protection can keep workers safe from any of these potential eye hazards. * Identify which professions are high risk. While everyone can suffer a work-related eye injury, some professions are higher risks than others. Such professions include construction, mining, manufacturing, plumbing, welding, and auto repair. If you work in any of those professions, it's best to exercise extra caution when protecting your eyes. * Identify the proper eye protection. Risk of eye injury not only differs depending on profession, but it can also be higher or lower depending on certain tasks within a given profession as well. For those who work in especially hazardous environments, it's possible to use several different types of eye protection depending on what a given task is. In general, the following safety precautions are applicable, but it's also important to consult a safety manual before beginning any of the following tasks: when working in areas with flying objects, particles or dust, wear safety glasses that feature side shields whenever working with chemicals, be sure to wear safety goggles that will protect both the fronts and sides of eyes from splashing chemicals when working near radiation (i.e., welding or working with lasers or fiber optics) use specially made safety glasses, goggles, face shields, or specialty helmets, such as welding helmets (Note: local laws typically mandate the above-mentioned safety glasses and other items are readily available to workers, so don't be afraid to ask.) * Don't assume your eyes are safe sitting at a desk. Many office workers also suffer from eye injuries. While these might not be as obvious as chemicals splashing into the eye or dirt or dust getting in, that doesn't mean eye injuries suffered while sitting at a desk can't be just as harmful. When working in an office setting, be sure to give your eyes regular breaks and set your computer monitor at a safe distance and height to lessen eye strain.

Bird populations are always shifting and changing. For example, 2009 GBBC data highlighted a huge southern invasion of Pine Siskins across much of the eastern United States. Participants counted 279,469 Pine Siskins on 18,528 checklists, as compared to the previous high of 38,977 birds on 4,069 checklists in 2005. Failure of seed crops farther north caused the siskins to move south to find their favorite food. On the www.birdcount.org website, participants can explore realtime maps and charts that show what others are reporting during the count. The site has tips to help identify birds and special materials for educators. Participants may also enter the GBBC photo contest by uploading images taken during the count. Many images will be featured in the GBBC website's photo gallery. All participants are entered in a drawing for prizes that include bird feeders, binoculars, books, CDs, and many other great birding products. In 2010, Bird Studies Canada joins the GBBC as the program's Canadian partner. "Bird Studies Canada is delighted to be the Canadian partner for this extremely valuable program," said George Finney, President of BSC.

"The NFCC Drafting Department is very excited to offer this raffle to the community," said Newton. "The winner will receive everything they need in the house plan to get a permit to build. The only cost to the winner to have the house plan created will be the cost of the raffle ticket. Best of all, proceeds from the raffle will go toward student scholarships." The winning raffle ticket will be drawn on Saturday, March 6 during NFCC's Super Saturday event; winner does not have to be present to win. Raffle tickets are on sale now $20 each or get six tickets for $100 and save $20 while increasing your chance to win and can be purchased through March 6. NFCC drafting students are selling raffle tickets in the community. Tickets are also available in several locations on the NFCC campus: the NFCC Drafting Department, located in the NFCC Career and Technical Education Center (Bldg. 13); NFCC College Advancement (Bldg. 32); or at the NFCC Library (Bldg. 4); or contact Lauri Newton at 850-973-1633 or email NewtonL@nfcc.edu.House plan raffle announced at NFCCWinner receives free custom designed house plan valued at $1,800From left: NFCC drafting student Justin McCuley, NFCC drafting instructor Lauri Newton and students Brentley Wood and David Parnell are selling raffle tickets to help raise money for student scholarships.
