Notes

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

JURY DUTY SCAM

Your phone rings. The caller
says that he or she is the official
jury coordinator for Suwannee
County, and that a warrant has
been issued for your arrest for
failure to appear for jury duty.
You begin to complain that you
never received a jury summons,
but the caller is harsh and

your information, praying to
avoid arrest.
You've just been scammed.


That scenario, and similar
versions are being played out in
dozens of states, including
Florida, as a way for con artists
to steal your identity quickly
and efficiently, say local and


state officials. While most
scams play on a victim's greed,
this one feeds on fear.
Sometimes, the con artists re-
quest an "on-the-spot-payment
of a fine" to gather a victim's
credit card information. No
matter the method, beware, of-
ficials say. Most locals, when
asked, said they would not fall

Newspaper Advertising



WORKS


I was amazed at the response,


to the ads we ran in the Suwannee Democrat! Having
been in advertising and promotions for almost 20 years,
I've been telling people for years that advertising pays.
This time, though, I was able to see it first-hand for
myself! It's been a week since we ran the ads and our
phones are still ringing from them.


We ran two ads for our Grand Opening and our phones
immediately started ringing! The calls were from the
exact people we are trying to reach. We are excited to
see firsthand the results from advertising in The
Suwannee Democrat. Now we know exactly how
effective the Democrat will be in helping us reach
women through this ministry!



Put newspaper advertising
to WORK for you!

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: How often do dentures need to be
replaced?
A: When properly cared for, dentures will
last a long time. But even with good care,
they're going to need work, and possibly
replacement, over time. Your mouth
naturally changes with age. The ridge of
your gums can recede or shrink, as can
jaw bones. As these changes occur,
dentures can become loose fitting. And
loose dentures can lead to sores and
infection. They also can make chewing
difficult and change your facial features.
Your dentist can explain to you the
difference between relining, remaking and
rebasing your dentures as needed. To
make a rebased denture, the dentist will
use the teeth from your existing denture
and make a new base. Naturally, if you
break or otherwise damage a denture, it
may have to be replaced. Though they are
sturdy enough in your mouth, the danger
with dentures is handling them outside the
mouth. When you are removing your
dentures, you should lean over a folded
towel. A drop of even a few inches onto a
hard surface could damage a denture.
Regular visits to the dentist are important
for denture wearers. You want to make
sure your dentures are in good shape, and
to keep tabs on your general oral health.

- Don't Cry ~


I I Don't cry any more tears for me,
I am at peace; I'm finally free.
Like the eagle in the sky,
I am soaring, so please don't cry.

I know you love me,
I love you too,
But my time was over,
was finally through.
I have ascended to a better place


To those that loved me,
I did not fall,
I only succumbed to a higher call.
Do not mourn me,
I am wiih you still.
I'll be with you always,
from dawn - until.

THE SUWANNEE SCRIBBLER


Party (line)


of five
By Jim Holmes
I'm amazed at how much time folks spend on the
telephone these days ... seemingly just gabbing.
Then there are the phones themselves. Those tiny
ones that fit in a person's ear really drive me nuts.
I always think some stranger on the street is talking
to me. My second reaction is that a space alien is
crawling out of their ear.
At any rate, as a career broadcast newsman, the
telephone played a major role in my everyday pro-
fessional life. Most of the time, I was talking with
sources, conducting interviews, confirming facts or
getting tips. In other words, my phone use was
based almost entirely on me asking questions, then
listening carefully, while frantically taking notes.
To do the job, my attention had to be riveted, both
on the caller's words and even more important-
ly the context in which his or her comments
were made.
Reporting may have been a profession I loved,
but nonetheless, it was hard work!
So for me, the telephone was a tool, much like
the carpenter's hammer or the physician's stetho-
scope. It was vitally important to doing the job, but
not something I wanted to make a lot of use of in
my spare time. (Can you imagine a doctor running
up to you on the beach and saying, "Hey, can I lis-
ten to your heart for the fun of it?")
Perhaps my professional background is why I'm
terrible at using a telephone for personal conversa-
tions. My wife can spend hours visiting with
friends and family via long distance. As for me,
I'm pretty much a "yep" and "nope" type of guy on
the phone. My daughter jokes she has never had a
telephone conversation with me in which I said
more than 50 words. Yet it's an entirely different
story when we sit down and visit face to face.
There may be an even more deeply rooted reason
why I'm so hesitant to use the phone for personal
conversations ... one dating back to when I was a
kid and our family was one of five on a party line.
Remember party lines, where several families
shared a single strand of coax, running down a re-
mote rural road? You knew if the call was for you
or someone else by the ring pattern. Two longs and
a short, was ours.
If you had a party line, I bet you also had a neigh-
bor like Mrs. Cartwright. She was a seemingly an-
cient widow who lived nearby and made a point of
listening in on everyone's phone calls ... her la-
bored-breathing nearly always audible. I'm cer-
tain her not so quiet presence had to be dis-
concerting if you were on the phone with a bill col-
lector or a doctor. But the heavy background
breathing was an absolute nightmare for a teenager
like me, if some girl from school had called.
Folks on our party line did complain. We'd
shout, "Get off the line Mrs. Cartwright!" She
would just pretend not to be there. I think she had
reached that point where ANY conversation by
ANY human being was appreciated. In other
words, even phone calls between others made her
loneliness a little more bearable.
Instead of complaining, our four families would
have been better Christians had we just taken up a
collection and bought her a TV. Arthur Godfrey,
Queen for a Day and Uncle Miltie had to be far
more entertaining than any of us who lived down
that old country lane.
Jim Holmes lives in Live Oak.

'It came from the Everglades'


By Dwain Walden
If I had not known better, I would
have thought that I was watching a
science fiction movie, something
along the lines of the old Alfred
Hitchcock themes like "The Birds."
But no, it was a documentary. Real
horror!
In an earlier column, I mentioned
the Burmese python problem that is
occurring in South Florida. But I guess I didn't really
grasp the enormity of the situation until the Discovery
Channel painted me a gruesome picture
Tuesday evening. Along with the narration of Peter
Coyote and some special effects sound tracking, it made
the hair on the back of my neck stand up. It can no long
stand up on the top of my head.
Anyway, this was all about what scientists are doing to
try to combat such a slithering problem. And unlike glob-
al warming where there is much debate and you can't just
look out the window and see it, in the case of the pythons
you can look out the window and notice that Fido and
Rover are gone.
And you can watch as a team of animal experts remove
a dozen two-foot hatchlings out from under your garage.
And now to add insult to injury, researchers have dis-
covered a different species of python in the Florida wilds.
It's the North African rock python.
One scientist said this species makes the Burmese
python look like a pussy cat. Unlike the Burmese python
that will lie in wait to ambush prey, the rock python will
chase it. I guess you say it is proactive. And it's bigger -
big enough to kill and devour a small deer. The scientists
speculate that these two species can interbreed, which
could pose a whole new set of problems.


1 A


II


Now most of this issue lies within the Everglades Na-
tional Park. But scientists are afraid, based on climate
adaptations in Asia, that the pythons can move northward
as far as Tennessee and even Washington, D.C.
That means we are in the adaptable zone here in South
Georgia and North Florida. And that's where I got up to
make sure the den door was locked and to comb the hair
down on the back of my neck.
Now the scientists don't really know how many pythons
they are dealing with.
They are sure there are tens of thousands of them, but
they say there could be hundreds of thousands since their
mortality rate is very low and they breed so prolifically.
They are dissecting some of them to study their food
supply. They have found possums, raccoons, birds and
rats, among other creatures. One even swallowed a grown
alligator. Now that's scary given that the alligator's only
enemy is man.
They've moved several male pythons to a research cen-
ter in South Carolina to see how they adapt to cold. And
they apparently have adapted well. Now that's really scary
... a snake as long as your water hose and as big around as
a sewer line that wants to come in out of the cold.
Florida opened a hunting season on the snakes recently
but only 35 were killed. Right now, scientists aren't sure
the population can be controlled.
But let's hope they come up with an answer to the prob-
lem in the very near future. Given how far they might
range in the U.S., if they ever get to Washington, we can
be assured the problem will never be solved. But factoring
their appetites for varmints ... oh well, I don't want to
seem insensitive so I'll just close here.

O'BRIEN AND OUR NEIGHBORS



'Bits & Pieces' from


south Suwannee Co.
By Ana Smith
It's only been a week,
but my friend Mary Gold-
smith's absence is being
felt in my home. I really
miss having her right here
to talk to, and one of my L
cats, "Prissy" maintains a
warm place at one end of
the sofa where she and
Mary cuddled up every
day, especially at night
while we watched TV, and
looks for her in the bed-
room. Prissy took to Mary
from the first day, and
misses the warm cuddling
and petting.
And the cold weather
continues to stay with us.
Thankfully we did not get
any of the snow that was
predicted for our area last
weekend. The sun felt so
nice and warm when it
came through the window
and into the car when we
went out, but that was
about all I could say about
venturing outdoors the
week Mary was here. The
only other thing that really

"warmed me up" was get-
ting my electric bill for the
month. I wonder just how
many others experienced
the "out-of-sight" increase
like the one that was on
my bill, and with no un-
derstandable reason for it
to triple in just one month.
Talk about getting a
shock? Come on, spring!
Last weekend the
Sweetheart Banquet at
O'Brien Baptist Church
was as much fun as previ-
ous ones. Brother George
came up with a few games
that involved some of our
couples, and provided a lot
of good fun and laughs, in
addition to the great food
always served up at these
events. I'll have photos to
share next week.
Also, the morning wor-
ship message last Sunday
was brought to us by Paul
Bell and his wife, Emily.
Paul is the nephew of Pas-
tor George Fryar. The cou-
ple will very soon be on
their way as missionaries
in Bosnia, and they gave
their personal testimonies
before Paul gave his mes-
sage. This is a young man
who is totally committed
to the work Our Lord has


called him to do, as is
Emily, and he always de-
livers a powerful and
meaningful message. It
was very evident that Pas-
tor George and his wife
Vaster are very proud of
this young couple, and as
a congregation we are
committed to supporting
them in the next four years
as they do a very special
and important work in
God's name.
Beginning this Friday
evening O'Brien Baptist
church will have "Game
Night" for our youth in the
fellowship hall from 7 to 9
p.m. There will be a time
of learning about God's
word as well as games,
fun, and Christian fellow-
ship. Someone also said
this night could be called
"Parents' Relief Night" be-
cause it's a time when par-
ents could be "relieved"
that their child or children
were in a safe place hav-
ing a good time. But par-
ents are also welcome to
stay and be part of the
night's activities.
This Saturday morning
is Brotherhood time, when
all men in our community
are invited to come share
in a really good breakfast,
as well share in the wor-


ship of Our Lord and take
part in serving the commu-
nity. Breakfast starts at
8:00am. You don't have to
be a member of O'Brien
Baptist Church to partici-
pate; all men are welcome.
If you attend O'Brien
Baptist church, and if you
have not yet had your pic-
ture taken for the new di-
rectory or updated your in-
formation, next Sunday
will be the last day to have
your photo taken and to
hand in the information
form. Contact the church
at 935-1503 for more in-
formation.
From "God's Little In-
struction Book":
"Never laugh at any-
one's dreams."
"Overpay a good

"When you feel terrific,
notify your face."
"Believe in love at first
sight."
"Never refuse jury duty.
It is your civic responsibil-
ity, and you'll learn a lot."
"Accept a breath mint if
someone offers you one."
Stay warm! Appreciate
the fact that you have a
loving family, loving
friends, and a home where
you are safe and warm.
God bless!

Medications May Help Prevent Fainting
Vasovagal syncope, a common cause of fainting, is characterized by
reduced blood flow to the brain, which leads to a temporary loss of
consciousness and muscle tone. Blood vessel dilation and a slowed
heart rate occur in response to triggers in susceptible persons. These
may include hunger, extreme fatigue, severe pain, a crowded
environment, or a stressful situation. Symptoms that may occur before
an episode include dizziness, sweating, nausea, and blurred vision.
Some persons may not experience any warning symptoms.
Persons who have experienced fainting episodes from large crowds or
stressful situations should avoid such triggers whenever possible to
prevent fainting. A pacemaker also may be helpful for someone
experiencing vasovagal syncope, to regulate the heart beat. For persons
who experience frequent episodes that are not relieved through
preventive measures, prescription medications may help. Beta blockers,
such as metoprolol (Lopressor) and atenolol (Tenormin), work by
decreasing the contraction of the heart muscle. Selective serotonin
reuptake inhibitors, such as paroxetine (Paxil) and sertraline / .
may prevent fainting episodes. Transdermal scopolamine (Transderm
Scop) is an anticholinergic medication that may also prevent fainting.

Federal will donate $1 toward ACV's campaign,
up to $10,000. The program started February 1,
2010 and will run for one year, or until the
$10,000 goal has been met. Customers must en-
roll in the rewards program in order to partici-
pate. Call Eden Camejo at 386-362-3433, ext.
3802, (camejoe@ffsb.com) or enroll in person at

mation on the campaign, contact Craig Carter at

Ken Steinseifer


Fresh from college, Ken
Steinseifer was hired at
Advent Christian Village
on July 5, 1967. As Assis-
tant to the Superintendent
(now President), he basi-
cally did whatever was
needed to keep things up
and running. Forty-two
years later, he still serves
ACV. Though his title has
changed, he continues to
excel at keeping things up
and running.
Early in his years of em-
ployment, however, he left
to accept the position of
Executive Director at Park
of the Palms in Keystone
Heights, FL. Only 18
months later, he returned
to Advent Christian Vil-
lage and has never looked
back.
Steinseifer was recently
honored for thirty-five
years of continuous service
to ACV at the Employee
Service Awards, a ceremo-
ny that acknowledges
milestones in the length of
service that staff members
have given to ACV. At the
ceremony, ACV President
and CEO Craig Carter
pointed out that he was
only 4 years old when
Steinseifer first came to
ACV. He did some re-
search, however, and de-
scribed a little of what life
in the United States was
like at that time:
In 1967, the war in Viet
Nam was escalating, as
were protests against the
war. The average annual
income was $7,300. A gal-
lon of gas cost .33 cents.
McDonald's introduced a
new sandwich called the

house price was $3,840.
Minimum wage was $1.40
an hour.
At ACV in 1967,
Phillips Civic Center (the
structure that was recently
completely renovated) was
a brand new state-of-the-
art facility. ACV residents
were housed in Dowling
Hall and Delong Hall, nei-
ther of which exists today.
Church services were held

Each of these facili


housed Steinseifer's office,
but neither were built
when he first began his
employment.
Steinseifer has played
many roles in his tenure at
ACV. He was houseparent
for a boy's cottage, life-
guard, Director of Camp
Suwannee, Business Man-
ager, Head of Physical
Properties, and Director of
Related Services at the
nursing home, a position
that he still holds today. As
such, he is in charge of
Food Services, Laundry,
Housekeeping, Communi-
cations and more. He has
also served in various vol-
unteer capacities. He tu-
tored children and taught
Sunday School. He was a
volunteer fireman on the
Village Fire Department,
and at one point was the
Fire Chief. He is even a
cameraman and technician,
broadcasting the Village
Church services to ACV's
closed circuit television
iere station, so those who are
irch at unable to attend can view
ng the service at home.
the Carter said, "For as long
ing as I can remember, Ken
on the has been an integral part of
house the day to day operations
rsing at the Village. He contin-
n ues to faithfully uphold the
r build- core values of Advent
h Christian Village and we
and are most grateful for his

ties vice."

insurance. "I understand
enough about that system
that some red flags would
go up. Anyone asking for
your social over the phone,
I would immediately say
no."
In 2006 the FBI issued a
warning against this jury
duty scam, but as of late
the cunning ploy and sev-
eral like it have begun to
reemerge. According to the
agency, it's nothing new.
"Communities in more
than a dozen states have is-
sued public warnings about
cold calls from people
claiming to be court offi-
cials seeking personal in-
formation," the FBI has
said. "As a rule, court offi-
cials never ask for confi-
dential information over
the phone; they generally
correspond with prospec-
tive jurors via mail."
One local said he knows
this to be true.
"When dealing with jury
duty, they don't ask you for
that kind of information
over the phone," said John


Harris. "They usually send
a card in the mail."
This scam, however,
could happen anywhere,
particularly in small, rural
communities like Suwan-
nee County where folks
feel a sense of calm and se-
curity. But don't fall vic-
tim, says Sheriff Tony
Cameron.
"If anyone calls your
home asking for your so-
cial security number, dri-
ver's license, or credit
number you do not give it
to them, ever," said
Cameron.
He said people should
immediately hang up and
contact the Sheriff's Of-
fice.
"If a number appears on
your caller I.D. in reference
to that call, that informa-
tion can be useful in us in-
vestigating the call," he
said.
The office of Gov. Char-
lie Crist has repeatedly sent
out notices to counties and
communities throughout
the state reminding folks to
beware of all forms of
identity theft.


Local Elizabeth Kirby,
23, said she would need to
see a notice in "black and
white."
"They'd better come
prove it to me in writing,"
she said. "I wouldn't give
anybody my social or any-
thing without them show-
ing me their proper I.D."
Darlene Daniels, director
of courts in Suwannee
County, said the actual pro-
cedure for contacting a no-
show juror is to refer the
matter to the sheriff's of-
fice.
"If a juror does not come,
then we give their informa-
tion to the sheriff's office,
who then contacts them,"
Daniels said.
And Cameron made clear
that no one in his office
would ever ask for a social
security number over the
phone.
The latest FBI notice,
which is recirculating by e-
mail, is just a reminder to
everyone to be alert and
don't fall pray to identity
theft.
If you receive a call sim-
ilar to the one mentioned
above or feel that you may
be victim to identity theft,
please contact the Sheriff's
Office at 362-2222 or the
Live Oak Police Depart-
ment at 362-7463.

child neglect causing great
bodily harm, to run concur-
rent to the other charge. In
addition, Sallas will serve
five years' probation.
Originally, Sallas signed
a plea deal to serve a year
and a day in prison. How-
ever, Judge Paul Bryan re-
jected that plea, and a new
agreement was written and
signed.
On January 10, 2009,
Jones was the right front
passenger of the 2003 Pon-
tiac SUV driven by Sallas
when the vehicle crashed
while headed south on 89th
Road near O'Brien. The
SUV traveled onto the east
shoulder and overturned,
ejecting Jones from the ve-
hicle, according to FHP re-


ports. The vehicle came to
rest after striking a pine
tree with its right side. The
single-vehicle crash killed
Jones instantly.
Sallas and two other pas-
sengers, Marjorie Jones,
two years old at the time,
and Elizabeth Jones, an in-
fant, were treated for in-
juries at Shands Live Oak.
Neither Alyssa nor Sallas
were wearing their seat-
belts, according to FHP re-
ports. The other two chil-
dren were not properly re-
strained either, reports at
the time also showed.
In addition, Sallas was
driving with a suspended
license.
Under the plea deal, Sal-
las must pay over $7,000 in
court costs, fees and resti-
tution.

M. Hernandez, M.D., P.A.
at 5 p.m. at his medical
practice, 826 S.W. Main
Blvd, Lake City (Medical
Clinic of North Florida)
without incident, Seifert
said.
The Columbia County
Multi-Jurisdictional Task
Force conducted a lengthy
undercover investigation
stemming from complaints
that Hernandez was issuing
prescriptions for pain med-
ication that were not med-
ically necessary, according


charges
to Seifert.
Hernandez, 61, was
booked into the Columbia

and is charged with one
count of trafficking in Oxy-
codone. He has since been
released on bond. Addi-
tional charges against Her-
nandez are likely, said
Seifert.
The Multi-Jurisdictional
Task Force is composed of
Detectives from the Co-
lumbia County Sheriff's

"Live Oak is a wonder-
ful community, but like
most cities, we have con-
straints on our growth and
it is going to take fiscal dis-
cipline and common sense
to maintain or improve our
quality of life," Gill said.
With almost 20 years of
business experience in ac-
counting, management and
real estate, Gill said he be-
lieves his background will
enable him to bring the
highest level of efficiency,
leadership and sound gov-
ernance to the position.

According to the report, Dana Carl Dou-
glas Sr., 58, was intoxicated and became
involved in a dispute with the victim. He
retrieved a single barrel shotgun, pointed it
at the individual, and said he would shoot,
the report stated.
Douglas reportedly then struck the vic-
tim multiple times in the head and torso
with the barrel and butt of the shotgun.
A third party at the scene told Douglas
he needed to calm down, at which point,
Douglas grabbed a loaded handgun and
pointed it at that person, stating, "Open


I was approached by
several community leaders
who felt I was well quali-
fied for this job and had the
character and integrity so
critical for this important
position," Gill said. "I am
very excited about the pos-
sibility of serving my com-
munity in a role that seems
to be tailor made for my
education, experience and
knowledge."

River rising;

Continued From Page 1A

Commission activated restrictions in
Zone 3, from Little River Spring to the
County Road 340 Bridge at Rock
Bluff.
This 23-mile segment will be an
idle-speed, no-wake zone as long as
the Suwannee River is at 24 feet or
more, as indicated on the Branford
gauge.
FWC officers will be patrolling this
area of the river to ensure boaters
comply with the idle-speed, no-wake
rule, said Capt. Roy Brown, area su-
pervisor at the FWC's Lake City of-
fice. The FWC encourages boaters to
stay off the river system until condi-
tions improve.
"We don't believe the river will
maintain this level for very long,"
Brown said. "The river level has been
rising extremely slowly over the past
two weeks. We will continue to moni-
tor it and get the word out once the
zone is deactivated."
No serious damage has been report-
ed to this point.
This is the second zone activated
this year. The FWC activated Zone 5,
a 32-mile segment from River Rise in
O'Leno State Park west to the conflu-
ence of the Suwannee River, on Jan.
29, when the Santa Fe River reached


17 feet on the Three Rivers gauge,
where flood stage is 19 feet. That zone
remains in effect.
An idle-speed, no-wake zone means
a vessel must proceed at a speed no
greater than what is required to main-
tain steerageway and headway. At no
time is any vessel required to proceed
so slowly that the operator is unable to
control it or anything it may be tow-
ing.
The other three zones are:
*Zone 1, from the U.S. 90 Bridge at
Ellaville south to the State Road 51
Bridge at Luraville. This 39-mile seg-
ment becomes an idle-speed, no-wake
zone when the Suwannee River reach-
es 47 feet or more at the Ellaville
gauge, where flood stage is 54 feet.
*Zone 2, from the S.R. 51 Bridge at
Luraville to Little River Spring. This
18-mile segment becomes an idle-
speed, no-wake zone when the
Suwannee River reaches 26 feet or
more above mean sea level at the
Branford gauge, where flood stage is
29 feet.
*Zone 4, from the C.R. 340 Bridge
at Rock Bluff to one mile below the
Fowler Bluff Boat Ramp. This 51-
mile segment will be an idle-speed, no
wake-zone when the Suwannee River
reaches 9 feet or more at the Wilcox
gauge, where flood stage is 11 feet.

head off, big boy," according to the report.
That man fled the residence and called
911 stating that Douglas had threatened
him, saying, "I will ****ing kill all of
y'all."
A fourth man, who was asleep at the res-
idence and awoke while Douglas was
striking the family member, said he fled
when Douglas grabbed the handgun.
Douglas was booked Sunday and
charged with aggravated battery with a
deadly weapon, two counts of domestic vi-
olence with a weapon, and two counts of
aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

history

Suwannee High School's Joey Dukes, offensive line and Tripp Prevatt,
punter, were chosen to be on the first team of the Class 2A all-state foot-
ball team. Wide receiver Andre Zanders and defensive line Tre Robinson
were named honorable mention.


Bracewell to play for FAU
Live Oak's Nick Bracewell signed a letter of intent to play football for Division 1, Florida
Atlantic University led by Coach Howard Schnellenberger. In 2008 Bracewell passed for
over 2,200 yards, 31 touchdowns and just four interceptions. Although Bracewell
missed the first four games of the 2009 season due to a shoulder injury, he accumulat-
ed over 1,300 yards for 17 touchdowns. Bracewell also represented the Tallahassee re-
gion in the Florida-Georgia Border War All-Star game on Jan. 9. Florida defeated Geor-
gia 28-7. Bracewell transferred to Lafayette High School in 2008 and credits his ac-
complishments to the leadership of Head Coach Joey Pearson and the entire Hornet
coaching staff. Bracewell also had offers from Tulane University in New Orleans and
Florida International University in Miami. Pictured here is LHS Head Coach Joey Pear-
son, sister Ashton, Bracewell, brother Bryson, mother Sheila and father Tim.

The SHS Lady Bulldog
basketball team won their
Region 2-3A quarterfinal
match Thursday against the
Celtics of Ocala Trinity
Catholic, 43-34, to become
the first SHS lady's basket-
ball team in history to ad-
vance to the regional semi-
finals.
Suwannee found them-
selves trailing at half-time
19-16. The Bulldogs came
out of the half-time break
with a few defensive ad-
justments to slow down the
Celtics leading scorer, Am-
ber Ferguson, who came
into the game averaging 19
points per game. She col-
lected 15 points in the first
half but was held in check
in the second half, scoring
only five points.
As the Lady 'Dogs
turned up the defensive
pressure in the second half,
they were determined not
to be denied their place in
school history.
Suwannee's surge was
led by Tatiyana Thomas
with 11 points. Rictoria
Merrick followed with
nine points. Hope Cham-
bers: eight points, six re-
bounds and two blocks,
Kristiana Evans: eight
points, 10 rebounds and
two steals, Kemberlee
Beaty: four points, six re-
bounds and three steals and
Tiyrenee Riley with three
points, 11 rebounds and
three blocks.
The ladies hosted Wild-
wood High School in the
regional semi-finals Tues-
day night at 7 p.m., after
our press deadline. See a

Everyone says government needs to be run like a business and they
are right. The City of Live Oak is an $18,000,000 plus business.
Every bit of it your money.
One of the clerk's duties is to make sure every document is recorded
and available for your inspection. When you need it I will have it.
I am not running for a job. I am running to serve you the people of
Live Oak. I would be proud to be your clerk. I want your vote.

Don Newcombe was
full of firsts. He was the
first player to win a Cy
Young Award in 1956. He
was the first black pitcher
to win an MVP award. He
was the first black pitcher


to win a Rookie of the
Year award. He was the
only baseball player to win
all three. Don Newcombe
was also the first National
League pitcher to hit seven
homeruns in a season.
Newcombe was best
known as a Dodger but
ended his career with the
Chunichi Dragons in
Japan, the year 1962.

Newcombe played 81
games for the Dragons that
year mostly as an
outfielder. He batted .262
with 12 homeruns. He
patrolled the outfield with
another first Larry Doby.
The Dodgers lost the
pennant in a 3 game
playoff to the Giants that
year. Maybe they should

These notices shall satisfy two separate
but related procedural requirements for
activities to be undertaken by the City of
Live Oak.

REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS

On or about March 5, 2010 the City will
submit a request to the Florida
Department of Community Affairs for the

grant funds from the Florida Small Cities
Community Development Block Grant in
the amount of $700,000.

FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT

The City has determined that the project
will have no significant impact on the
human environment. Therefore, an

Cyber safety presentation
for parents
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.

Easily Eliminate

100 Calories a Day


LET'S TALK

ABOUT YOUR HEALTH





0A N


Dieting doesn't have to mean giving up
everything that you love. A few simple
changes here and there can trim a few
calories from your daily intake -- and
that can mean faster weight loss.
Following one or more of these
suggestions in the food and beverage
choices made at home, work, school, or
on the go can help cut about 100
calories each day. While 100 calories
may not seem like a big thing, over the
course of one year you will have saved
yourself 36,500 calories in total.

ning virtuoso" by the Los
Angeles Times, cellist
Kristina Reiko Cooper
has performed as a
soloist, recitalist and

throughout the Americas,

Laura Frautschi has estab-

David Peterson



& 1946 Band



to headline bluegrass evening at the Spirit


David Peterson and his
band 1946 are one of the
hottest bluegrass bands
around and they will be at
the Spirit of the Suwannee
Music Park Feb. 19 to en-
tertain you in style with
the best in bluegrass mu-
sic. Don't miss this grand
opportunity to hear Peter-
son and his band, which
includes one of America's
best banjo pickers, Charlie
Cushman.
Admission is only $5
per person at the door.
Doors open to the Music
Hall at 5 p.m. with the
show beginning at 7 p.m.
The SOS Cafe and Restau-
rant will have available
delicious food and bever-
ages at regular prices dur-
ing this event at the
SOSMP located on the
banks of the legendary
Suwannee River.
David Peterson is a rare
combination: a savvy in-
dependent recording artist
and a bluegrass singer
who cherishes tradition.
His voice has that lofty
quality that carries from
mountain top to mountain
top. It's powerful, com-
plete and saturated with
Bill Monroe and Jimmy
Martin's blues. A Boston
native, he's not somebody
who would have been is-
sued a bluegrass license at
birth. But Peterson learned
the music from a deacon
at his church and as music
writer Robert Oermann
likes to say, there's no-
body as zealous as a con-
vert. When he got serious
about the mandolin, the
guitar and bluegrass music
in 1995, Peterson left his
track of becoming a minis-
ter to pursue music. Now,
Dave preaches bluegrass
with a missionary zeal,
writes songs, sings,
records and travels every-
where spreading the blue-
grass message
Banjo picker Charlie
Cushman has played with
the best of the best includ-
ing Merle Haggard, Amy
Grant, Marty Raybon,
Ricky Skaggs, Tony Rice,

Registry of Persons


with Special Needs

According to Chapter 252.355 Florida Statutes, "in order to meet the
special needs of persons who would need assistance during
evacuations and sheltering because of physical, mental or sensory
disabilities, each local emergency management agency in the state
shall maintain a registry of persons with special needs located
within the jurisdiction of the local agency."

This registration helps the local Emergency Management Agency to
identify those persons in need of assistance and to plan for resource
allocation to meet those needs. This program gives persons with
special needs the option of preauthorizing emergency response
personnel to enter their homes during search and rescue operations
if necessary to assure their safety and welfare following disasters.

If you or someone you know has a special condition affecting
eyesight, hearing, speech, walking, breathing or has an emotional
condition and would need assistance during evacuations and
sheltering, please contact your local emergency management
agency. The level of care given in special needs shelters goes above
the basic first aid care available to shelters open to the general
population.

All information given will be kept strictly confidential.

Wanted:


Actors, designers and technical crew for G'ville production


GAINESVILLE Ahoy there ye
mateys and prepare yourself to sail the
seven seas with Sinbad the Sailor! The
city of Gainesville Department of Parks,
Recreation and Cultural Affairs is inau-
gurating the Thomas Center Theatre for
Young Audiences in April. The first pro-
duction will be The Commedia Voyages
of Sinbad by celebrated young audi-
ences' playwright Lane Riosley. It will
take place at the Thomas Center's Grace
and Sidney Knight Garden Theatre.


The play is a creative version of Sin-
bad's seven voyages with tumbling,
mock combat, puppetry and clowning
that the players will use to bring to life a
giant fish, the monstrous roc bird, the
King of the Skeletons, Zughub the Ogre,
the Old Man of the Sea and more. Open-
ing in mid-April, the play will run on
early Thursday evenings and Saturday
mornings for four weeks.
City event coordinator and the the-
atre's artistic director David Ballard will


direct the show and is requesting those
who are interested in taking part in the
production contact him to arrange an au-
dition and/or interview. The cast consists
of two male and two female adults and
there are also opportunities in design,
prop and scenery construction, as well
as stage and house management. He is
also seeking experienced directors for
possible future productions. Modest
stipends are possible for some positions.
David may be contacted at 352-393-


8746 or at
ballarddg@cityofgainesville.org.
The Cultural Affairs Division is the
designated local arts agency for
Gainesville and Alachua County. Its
mission is to promote cultural activity
and encourage community based cultural
resources.
For more information on the Thomas
Center Theatre for YL.n. Audiences or
to schedule an interview, please contact
David Ballard at 352-393-8746.

The caller says that he or she is the official jury coordinator for Suwannee County, and that a warrant has been issued for your arrest for failure to appear for jury duty. You begin to complain that you never received a jury summons, but the caller is harsh and couldn't care less. You panic. The coordinator asks for your social security number and date of birth so that your information can be verified to cancel the arrest warrant. You give your information, praying to avoid arrest. You've just been scammed. That scenario, and similar versions are being played out in dozens of states, including Florida, as a way for con artists to steal your identity quickly and efficiently, say local and state officials. While most scams play on a victim's greed, this one feeds on fear. Sometimes, the con artists request an "on-the-spot-payment of a fine" to gather a victim's credit card information.

We want to give it to you.570802-F Q: How often do dentures need to be replaced? A: When properly cared for, dentures will last a long time. But even with good care, they're going to need work, and possibly replacement, over time. Your mouth naturally changes with age. The ridge of your gums can recede or shrink, as can jaw bones. As these changes occur, dentures can become loose fitting. And loose dentures can lead to sores and infection. They also can make chewing difficult and change your facial features. Your dentist can explain to you the difference between relining, remaking and rebasing your dentures as needed. To make a rebased denture, the dentist will use the teeth from your existing denture and make a new base. Naturally, if you break or otherwise damage a denture, it may have to be replaced. Though they are sturdy enough in your mouth, the danger with dentures is handling them outside the mouth. When you are removing your dentures, you should lean over a folded towel. A drop of even a few inches onto a hard surface could damage a denture. Regular visits to the dentist are important for denture w earers. You w ant to make sure your dentures are in good shape, and to keep tabs on your general oral health.Presented as a service to the community by 571101-FASK DR.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Odd Even U U new new Odd EvenU U new new WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 6ANorth FloridaBy Jim Holmes I'm amazed at how much time folks spend on the telephone these days ... seemingly just gabbing. Then there are the phones themselves. Those tiny ones that fit in a person's ear really drive me nuts. I always think some stranger on the street is talking to me. My second reaction is that a space alien is crawling out of their ear. At any rate, as a career broadcast newsman, the telephone played a major role in my everyday professional life. Most of the time, I was talking with sources, conducting interviews, confirming facts or getting tips. In other words, my phone use was based almost entirely on me asking questions, then listening carefully, while frantically taking notes. To do the job, my attention had to be riveted, both on the caller's words and Ñ even more importantly Ñ the context in which his or her comments were made. Reporting may have been a profession I loved, but nonetheless, it was hard work! So for me, the telephone was a tool, much like the carpenter's hammer or the physician's stethoscope. It was vitally important to doing the job, but not something I wanted to make a lot of use of in my spare time. (Can you imagine a doctor running up to you on the beach and saying, "Hey, can I listen to your heart for the fun of it?") Perhaps my professional background is why I'm terrible at using a telephone for personal conversations. My wife can spend hours visiting with friends and family via long distance. As for me, I'm pretty much a "yep" and "nope" type of guy on the phone. My daughter jokes she has never had a telephone conversation with me in which I said more than 50 words. Yet it's an entirely different story when we sit down and visit face to face. There may be an even more deeply rooted reason why I'm so hesitant to use the phone for personal conversations ... one dating back to when I was a kid and our family was one of five on a party line. Remember party lines, where several families shared a single strand of coax, running down a remote rural road? You knew if the call was for you or someone else by the ring pattern. Two longs and a short, was ours. If you had a party line, I bet you also had a neighbor like Mrs. Cartwright. She was a seemingly ancient widow who lived nearby and made a point of listening in on everyone's phone calls ... her labored-breathing nearly always audible. I'm certain her Ñ not so quiet Ñ presence had to be disconcerting if you were on the phone with a bill collector or a doctor. But the heavy background breathing was an absolute nightmare for a teenager like me, if some girl from school had called. Folks on our party line did complain. We'd shout, "Get off the line Mrs. Cartwright!" She would just pretend not to be there. I think she had reached that point where ANYconversation by ANYhuman being was appreciated. In other words, even phone calls between others made her loneliness a little more bearable. Instead of complaining, our four families would have been better Christians had we just taken up a collection and bought her a TV. Arthur Godfrey, Queen for a Day and Uncle Miltie had to be far more entertaining than any of us who lived down that old country lane. 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.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:26-28 The Census Bureau estimates that the life cycle cost of the 2010 Census will be from $13.7 billion to $14.5 billion, making it the costliest census in the nation's history. Suppose you suggest to a congressman that given our budget crisis, we could save some money by dispensing with the 2010 census. I guarantee you that he'll say something along the lines that the Constitution mandates a decennial counting of the American people and he would be absolutely right. Article I, Section 2 of our constitution reads: "The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct." What purpose did the Constitution's framers have in mind ordering an enumeration or count of the American people every 10 years? The purpose of the headcount is to apportion the number of seats in the House of Representatives and derived from that, along with two senators from each state, the number of electors to the Electoral College. The Census Bureau tells us that this year, it will use a shorter questionnaire, consisting of only 10 questions. From what I see, only one of them serves the constitutional purpose of enumeration Ñ namely, "How many people were living or staying at this house, apartment or mobile home on April 1, 2010?" The Census Bureau's shorter questionnaire claim is deceptive at best. The American Community Survey, long form, that used to be sent to 1 in 6 households during the decennial count, is now being sent to many people every year. Here's a brief sample of its questions, and I want someone to tell me which question serves the constitutional function of apportioning the number of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives: Does this house, apartment, or mobile home have hot and cold running water, a flush toilet, a bathtub or shower, a sink with a faucet, a refrigerator, a stove? Last month, what was the cost of electricity for this house, apartment, or mobile home? How many times has this person been married? After each question, the Bureau of the Census provides a statement of how the answer meets a federal need. I would prefer that they provide a statement of how answers to the questions meet the constitutional need as expressed in Article I, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution. The Census Bureau also asks questions about race, and I want to know what does my race have to do with apportioning the U.S. House of Representatives? If I'm asked about race, I might respond the way I did when filling out a military form upon landing in Inchon, Korea in 1960; I checked off Caucasian. The warrant officer who was checking forms told me that I made a mistake and should have checked off "Negro." I told him that people have the right to self-identify themselves and I'm Caucasian. The warrant officer, trying to cajole me, asked why I would check off Caucasian instead of Negro. I told him that checking off Negro would mean getting the worse job over here. I'm sure the officer changed it after I left. Americans need to stand up to Washington's intrusion into our private lives. What business of government is the number of times a citizen has been married or what he paid for electricity last month? For those who find such intrusion acceptable, I'd ask them whether they'd also find questions of their sex lives or their marriage fidelity equally acceptable. What to do? Unless a census taker can show me a constitutional requirement, the only information I plan to give are the number and names of the people in my household. The census taker might say, "It's the law."

But no, it was a documentary. Real horror! In an earlier column, I mentioned the Burmese python problem that is occurring in South Florida. But I guess I didn't really grasp the enormity of the situation until the Discovery Channel painted me a gruesome picture Tuesday evening. Along with the narration of Peter Coyote and some special effects sound tracking, it made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. It can no long stand up on the top of my head. Anyway, this was all about what scientists are doing to try to combat such a slithering problem. And unlike global warming where there is much debate and you can't just look out the window and see it, in the case of the pythons you can look out the window and notice that Fido and Rover are gone. And you can watch as a team of animal experts remove a dozen two-foot hatchlings out from under your garage. And now to add insult to injury, researchers have discovered a different species of python in the Florida wilds. It's the North African rock python. One scientist said this species makes the Burmese python look like a pussy cat. Unlike the Burmese python that will lie in wait to ambush prey, the rock python will chase it. I guess you say it is proactive. And it's bigger big enough to kill and devour a small deer. The scientists speculate that these two species can interbreed, which could pose a whole new set of problems. Now most of this issue lies within the Everglades National Park. But scientists are afraid, based on climate adaptations in Asia, that the pythons can move northward as far as Tennessee and even Washington, D.C. That means we are in the adaptable zone here in South Georgia and North Florida. And that's where I got up to make sure the den door was locked and to comb the hair down on the back of my neck. Now the scientists don't really know how many pythons they are dealing with. They are sure there are tens of thousands of them, but they say there could be hundreds of thousands since their mortality rate is very low and they breed so prolifically. They are dissecting some of them to study their food supply. They have found possums, raccoons, birds and rats, among other creatures. One even swallowed a grown alligator. Now that's scary given that the alligator's only enemy is man. They've moved several male pythons to a research center in South Carolina to see how they adapt to cold. And they apparently have adapted well. Now that's really scary ... a snake as long as your water hose and as big around as a sewer line that wants to come in out of the cold. Florida opened a hunting season on the snakes recently but only 35 were killed. Right now, scientists aren't sure the population can be controlled. But let's hope they come up with an answer to the problem in the very near future. Given how far they might range in the U.S., if they ever get to Washington, we can be assured the problem will never be solved. But factoring their appetites for varmints ... oh well, I don't want to seem insensitive so I'll just close here. (Dwain Walden is editor/publisher of The Moultrie Observer,229-985-4545.

I really miss having her right here to talk to, and one of my cats, "Prissy" maintains a warm place at one end of the sofa where she and Mary cuddled up every day, especially at night while we watched TV, and looks for her in the bedroom. Prissy took to Mary from the first day, and misses the warm cuddling and petting. And the cold weather continues to stay with us. Thankfully we did not get any of the snow that was predicted for our area last weekend. The sun felt so nice and warm when it came through the window and into the car when we went out, but that was about all I could say about venturing outdoors the week Mary was here. The only other thing that really Branford Camera Club members invite you to join us for the second in a series of three free workshops. The workshop will be held during our regular meeting time at the Branford Public Library on Thursday. Remember, our new starting time is 7 p.m. February's workshop will be on "Basic Composition," designed to help you to progress from taking snapshots to making the photograph you are looking for! Terry Hancock, an experienced local photographer, will lead the workshop discussions covering basic rules of composition. Terry's program will form a good foundation for newcomers to photography, and be a good review for advanced amateurs as well. The March workshop will introduce participants to three areas of specialty photography: portrait, nature, and pet/animal photos. Members can request mentors for other areas of specialty photography such as kids, architecture, etc. If you missed the January workshop on "Camera Basics," members will help you catch up. Bring your camera and instruction manual with you! The homework for this month's meeting is "Framed" ... bring your pictures to share! The Branford Camera Club is open to all area residents. Our membership includes folks with a range of experience, film or digital, from novice to professional. There are no membership dues; only an interest in photography is required. The group meets at the Branford Public Library on the 3rd Thursday of each Pictured (left to right) is Dennis Starling, Worshipful Master, Robert C.

I wonder just how many others experienced the "out-of-sight" increase like the one that was on my bill, and with no understandable reason for it to triple in just one month. Talk about getting a shock? Come on, spring! Last weekend the Sweetheart Banquet at O'Brien Baptist Church was as much fun as previous ones. Brother George came up with a few games that involved some of our couples, and provided a lot of good fun and laughs, in addition to the great food always served up at these events. I'll have photos to share next week. Also, the morning worship message last Sunday was brought to us by Paul Bell and his wife, Emily. Paul is the nephew of Pastor George Fryar. The couple will very soon be on their way as missionaries in Bosnia, and they gave their personal testimonies before Paul gave his message. This is a young man who is totally committed to the work Our Lord has called him to do, as is Emily, and he always delivers a powerful and meaningful message. It was very evident that Pastor George and his wife Vaster are very proud of this young couple, and as a congregation we are committed to supporting them in the next four years as they do a very special and important work in God's name. Beginning this Friday evening O'Brien Baptist church will have "Game Night" for our youth in the fellowship hall from 7 to 9 p.m. There will be a time of learning about God's word as well as games, fun, and Christian fellowship. Someone also said this night could be called "Parents' Relief Night" because it's a time when parents could be "relieved" that their child or children were in a safe place having a good time. But parents are also welcome to stay and be part of the night's activities. This Saturday morning is Brotherhood time, when all men in our community are invited to come share in a really good breakfast, as well share in the worship of Our Lord and take part in serving the community. Breakfast starts at 8:00am. You don't have to be a member of O'Brien Baptist Church to participate; all men are welcome. If you attend O'Brien Baptist church, and if you have not yet had your picture taken for the new directory or updated your information, next Sunday will be the last day to have your photo taken and to hand in the information form. Contact the church at 935-1503 for more information. From "God's Little Instruction Book": "Never laugh at anyone's dreams." "Overpay a good babysitter." "When you feel terrific, notify your face."

Pharmacy & Your Health 575408-FMedications May Help Prevent FaintingVasovagal syncope , a common cause of fainting, is characterized by reduced blood flow to the brain, which leads to a temporary loss of consciousness and muscle tone. Blood vessel dilation and a slowed heart rate occur in response to triggers in susceptible persons. These may include hunger, extreme fatigue, severe pain, a crowded environment, or a stressful situation. Symptoms that may occur before an episode include dizziness, sweating, nausea, and blurred vision. Some persons may not experience any warning symptoms. Persons who have experienced fainting episodes from large crowds or stressful situations should avoid such triggers whenever possible to prevent fainting. A pacemaker also may be helpful for someone experiencing vasovagal syncope, to regulate the heart beat. For persons who experience frequent episodes that are not relieved through preventive measures, prescription medications may help. Beta blockers, such as metoprolol ( Lopressor ) and atenolol ( Tenormin ), work by decreasing the contraction of the heart muscle. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, such as paroxetine ( Paxil ) and sertraline ( Zoloft ), may prevent fainting episodes. Transdermal scopolamine ( Transderm Scop ) is an anticholinergic medication that may also prevent fainting.by Randy Johns, Pharm DDrive-up window 575409-F1512 South Ohio Avenue, 362-7066 Live Oak BY: BRAD WATSONASK THE EXPERT Q:A:Freezing does ruin latex paint, but it can survive a few freeze/thaw cycles.

Is it still good? PAINT & FLOORING 577714-F By Wendell Snowden We are just 15 short weeks away from the 17th Wellborn Blueberry Festival. Planning started the first week of January as vendors began sending in applications, advertising began and meetings were started to rehash the pros and cons from 2009. Ideas are being submitted on how to make this 17th event bigger and better. We would like to expand our parade with more floats and a couple of bands. We have changed our starting time to 10:30 am Saturday morning so as not to conflict with the Blueberry Pancake Breakfast which, by the way, also needs attention. Last year's power box failure foiled our super idea of having three serving stations, and slowed serving to a crawl. This year we are looking to team up with the Wellborn Baptist Church, located just down the street. Pastor Donald Minshew and his staff have offered the use of their kitchen and fellowship hall for an additional cooking and serving pancake station. The idea would be for attendees who choose to eat at the church to park at the church, have breakfast, and board the shuttle bus for the half-mile ride to the festival. The shuttles run all day, so the attendee could ride the shuttle back to their car whenever they wish. Also, the Wellborn Baptist Church will have their brand-new softball field ready by festival time (still a proposal hopefully finished). Their plans are to hold an invitational church softball tournament in conjunction with the Blueberry Festival. We like this idea! It will be an extra draw for the festival and the softball tournament not to mention, an additional activity for area residents. The Wellborn Community Association has been asked what the plans are for the now vacant property previously occupied by the burned-out furniture business. My first answer was that we would probably build a large hotel, or possibly a McDonald's or Burger King. When reality set in, we decided to let the Master Gardeners use a part of the property to plant and raise crops. When matured the harvest would be given away to needy families in the area. Master Gardeners will also be starting classes at the Wellborn Community Center on March 17, at 10 am, "Florida-Friendly Gardening" by UF/IFAS. Everyone is invited to attend. With the economy the way it is, people are inclined to cut back and refrain from doing the usual. Some festivals were dropped in 2008 and 2009. The Wellborn Community Association will not drop the Blueberry Festival. The Blueberry Festival gives Suwannee Countians and other Central and North Florida residents an opportunity to mingle and socialize with friends for little or no money. It serves as one more venue for small businesses and craftsmen to make and sell their wares. Small children participate and enjoy the children's games and rides, and larger children (adults) can enjoy and indulge themselves in funnel cakes, corn dogs, fried green tomatoes, and of course, so many blueberry treats. If nothing else, a festival pulls a community together and offers an excellent opportunity to meet and greet new neighbors. Mark your calendars for June 4 and 5, for a grand old time in Wellborn.WELLBORN NEWSGearing up for an annual treat Folks come from near and far to mingle and browse.

Fresh from college, Ken Steinseifer was hired at Advent Christian Village on July 5, 1967. As Assistant to the Superintendent (now President), he basically did whatever was needed to keep things up and running. Forty-two years later, he still serves ACV. Though his title has changed, he continues to excel at keeping things up and running. Early in his years of employment, however, he left to accept the position of Executive Director at Park of the Palms in Keystone Heights, FL. Only 18 months later, he returned to Advent Christian Village and has never looked back. Steinseifer was recently honored for thirty-five years of continuous service to ACVat the Employee Service Awards, a ceremony that acknowledges milestones in the length of service that staff members have given to ACV. At the ceremony, ACVPresident and CEO Craig Carter pointed out that he was only 4 years old when Steinseifer first came to ACV. He did some research, however, and described a little of what life in the United States was like at that time: In 1967, the war in Viet Nam was escalating, as were protests against the war. The average annual income was $7,300. Agallon of gas cost .33 cents. McDonald's introduced a new sandwich called the Big Mac. The average house price was $3,840. Minimum wage was $1.40 an hour. At ACVin 1967, Phillips Civic Center (the structure that was recently completely renovated) was a brand new state-of-theart facility. ACVresidents were housed in Dowling Hall and Delong Hall, neither of which exists today. Church services were held in Bixler Chapel; there was no Village Church at that time. The nursing home in 1967 was the Myrtle Carter Nursing Home, which stood on the site where Carter House now stands. The nursing home has since been housed in two other buildings, J. Ralph Smith Health Care Center and Good Samaritan Center. Each of these facilities housed Steinseifer's office, but neither were built when he first began his employment. Steinseifer has played many roles in his tenure at ACV. He was houseparent for a boy's cottage, lifeguard, Director of Camp Suwannee, Business Manager, Head of Physical Properties, and Director of Related Services at the nursing home, a position that he still holds today. As such, he is in charge of Food Services, Laundry, Housekeeping, Communications and more. He has also served in various volunteer capacities. He tutored children and taught Sunday School. He was a volunteer fireman on the Village Fire Department, and at one point was the Fire Chief.

Anyone asking for your social over the phone, I would immediately say no." In 2006 the FBI issued a warning against this jury duty scam, but as of late the cunning ploy and several like it have begun to reemerge. According to the agency, it's nothing new. "Communities in more than a dozen states have issued public warnings about cold calls from people claiming to be court officials seeking personal information," the FBI has said. "As a rule, court officials never ask for confidential information over the phone; they generally correspond with prospective jurors via mail." One local said he knows this to be true.

In addition, Sallas will serve five years'probation. Originally, Sallas signed a plea deal to serve a year and a day in prison. However, Judge Paul Bryan rejected that plea, and a new agreement was written and signed. On January 10, 2009, Jones was the right front passenger of the 2003 Pontiac SUVdriven by Sallas when the vehicle crashed while headed south on 89th Road near O'Brien. The SUVtraveled onto the east shoulder and overturned, ejecting Jones from the vehicle, according to FHPreports. The vehicle came to rest after striking a pine tree with its right side. The single-vehicle crash killed Jones instantly. Sallas and two other passengers, Marjorie Jones, two years old at the time, and Elizabeth Jones, an infant, were treated for injuries at Shands Live Oak. Neither Alyssa nor Sallas were wearing their seatbelts, according to FHPreports. The other two children were not properly restrained either, reports at the time also showed.

This 23-mile segment will be an idle-speed, no-wake zone as long as the Suwannee River is at 24 feet or more, as indicated on the Branford gauge. FWC officers will be patrolling this area of the river to ensure boaters comply with the idle-speed, no-wake rule, said Capt. Roy Brown, area supervisor at the FWC's Lake City office. The FWC encourages boaters to stay off the river system until conditions improve. "We don't believe the river will maintain this level for very long," Brown said. "The river level has been rising extremely slowly over the past two weeks. We will continue to monitor it and get the word out once the zone is deactivated." No serious damage has been reported to this point. This is the second zone activated this year. The FWC activated Zone 5, a 32-mile segment from River Rise in O'Leno State Park west to the confluence of the Suwannee River, on Jan. 29, when the Santa Fe River reached 17 feet on the Three Rivers gauge, where flood stage is 19 feet. That zone remains in effect. An idle-speed, no-wake zone means a vessel must proceed at a speed no greater than what is required to maintain steerageway and headway. At no time is any vessel required to proceed so slowly that the operator is unable to control it or anything it may be towing. The other three zones are: •Zone 1, from the U.S. 90 Bridge at Ellaville south to the State Road 51 Bridge at Luraville. This 39-mile segment becomes an idle-speed, no-wake zone when the Suwannee River reaches 47 feet or more at the Ellaville gauge, where flood stage is 54 feet. •Zone 2, from the S.R. 51 Bridge at Luraville to Little River Spring. This 18-mile segment becomes an idlespeed, no-wake zone when the Suwannee River reaches 26 feet or more above mean sea level at the Branford gauge, where flood stage is 29 feet. •Zone 4, from the C.R. 340 Bridge at Rock Bluff to one mile below the Fowler Bluff Boat Ramp. This 51mile segment will be an idle-speed, no wake-zone when the Suwannee River reaches 9 feet or more at the Wilcox gauge, where flood stage is 11 feet. Continued From Page 1A According to the report, Dana Carl Douglas Sr., 58, was intoxicated and became involved in a dispute with the victim. He retrieved a single barrel shotgun, pointed it at the individual, and said he would shoot, the report stated. Douglas reportedly then struck the victim multiple times in the head and torso with the barrel and butt of the shotgun. Athird party at the scene told Douglas he needed to calm down, at which point, Douglas grabbed a loaded handgun and pointed it at that person, stating, "Open your mouth again and I will blow your head off, big boy," according to the report. That man fled the residence and called 911 stating that Douglas had threatened him, saying, "I will ****ing kill all of y'all." Afourth man, who was asleep at the residence and awoke while Douglas was striking the family member, said he fled when Douglas grabbed the handgun. Douglas was booked Sunday and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, two counts of domestic violence with a weapon, and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.Man threatens, beats family member with gun, say policeContinued From Page 1A County Sheriff's Office. Deputies arrested Joseph M. Hernandez, M.D., P.A. at 5 p.m. at his medical practice, 826 S.W. Main Blvd, Lake City (Medical Clinic of North Florida) without incident, Seifert said. The Columbia County Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force conducted a lengthy undercover investigation stemming from complaints that Hernandez was issuing prescriptions for pain medication that were not medically necessary, according to Seifert. Hernandez, 61, was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility and is charged with one count of trafficking in Oxycodone. He has since been released on bond. Additional charges against Hernandez are likely, said Seifert.

"Live Oak is a wonderful community, but like most cities, we have constraints on our growth and it is going to take fiscal discipline and common sense to maintain or improve our quality of life," Gill said. With almost 20 years of business experience in accounting, management and real estate, Gill said he believes his background will enable him to bring the highest level of efficiency, leadership and sound governance to the position. "I was approached by several community leaders who felt I was well qualified for this job and had the character and integrity so critical for this important position," Gill said. "I am very excited about the possibility of serving my community in a role that seems to be tailor made for my education, experience and knowledge." He said his focus as City Clerk will be clear-cut: 1) Provide the highest level customer service to the residents, business owners and city government agenciesJohn Gill to seek City Clerk postContinued From Page 1A 2) Seek the most effective ways to use tax dollars wisely and efficiently As a Live Oak native and son of a local businessman (Leamon Gill), Gill has lived within the city for the past 12 years and served as a RE/MAX real estate broker for the past five years. His background, he notes, is extensive: * Worked as an accountant for 12 years for three large health care organizations: Baptist Medical Center, Advent Christian Village and Lake City Medical Center. Six of those years were in management, overseeing the daily operations, supervising employees and being accountable for the corporation's financial reporting. * Serving as a member of the city of Live Oak code enforcement board * Serving as the incoming President-Elect of the Branford Rotary Club * Serving as finance committee member for Westwood Baptist Church * Served in the United States Army as a military policeman for three years, receiving an honorable discharge * Graduated from the University of North Florida with a Bachelor degree in Accounting * Gained extensive training in business technology and computing. "I am raising my own family here so they can have the same quality of life I had growing up. My wife, Allison, is also from Live Oak and we not only want the best for our two teenage children, we want the best for the town and the people here," Gill said. Harris. "They usually send a card in the mail." This scam, however, could happen anywhere, particularly in small, rural communities like Suwannee County where folks feel a sense of calm and security. But don't fall victim, says Sheriff Tony Cameron. "If anyone calls your home asking for your social security number, driver's license, or credit number you do not give it to them, ever," said Cameron. He said people should immediately hang up and contact the Sheriff's Office. "If a number appears on your caller I.D. in reference to that call, that information can be useful in us investigating the call," he said. The office of Gov. Charlie Crist has repeatedly sent out notices to counties and communities throughout the state reminding folks to beware of all forms of identity theft. Local Elizabeth Kirby, 23, said she would need to see a notice in "black and white." "They'd better come prove it to me in writing," she said. "I wouldn't give anybody my social or anything without them showing me their proper I.D." Darlene Daniels, director of courts in Suwannee County, said the actual procedure for contacting a noshow juror is to refer the matter to the sheriff's office. "If a juror does not come, then we give their information to the sheriff's office, who then contacts them," Daniels said. And Cameron made clear that no one in his office would ever ask for a social security number over the phone. The latest FBI notice, which is recirculating by email, is just a reminder to everyone to be alert and don't fall pray to identity theft. If you receive a call similar to the one mentioned above or feel that you may be victim to identity theft, please contact the Sheriff's Office at 362-2222 or the Live Oak Police Department at 362-7463. Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum is scheduled to speak Friday, Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. at the Live Oak Church of God. McCollum served as a U.S. Congressman from 1981-2001. In 1989 he founded the U.S. House Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare and was recognized as an expert on terrorism. He is now seeking the Republican nomination for governor of Florida.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Odd Even U U new new Odd EvenU U new new WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2010 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 15ANorth Florida Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics 2010 Update (American Heart Association, December 17, 2009) has been issued just in time for American Heart Month, and the news is sobering. Despite the fact that there may be broader awareness in the population about women's heart disease, there are still disparities in how women are diagnosed and treated, translating into more than 42 million women currently living with or at risk for heart disease in the United States. According to the report, one woman dies every minute from cardiovascular disease (CVD), citing a total of 432,709 female deaths in 2006 Ñ more than the combined deaths from all cancers, chronic lower respiratory disease, Alzheimer's disease, and accidents. Of clear concern are the rates of overweight, obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure, all key contributors to heart disease. Although there was a higher percentage Ñ 57% Ñ of awareness among women of CVD being the leading cause of death among women than in recent surveys, the percentage of African-American and Hispanic women was still low and unchanged. Hispanic women also reported that there was "nothing they can do to keep themselves from getting CVD." "WomenHeart encourages all women to take charge of their heart health. It is important for women to learn their risk for heart disease, know how to live a heart healthy lifestyle, and recognize the signs and symptoms of heart disease in the event she needs evaluation and treatment," said Lisa M. Tate, Chief Executive Officer of WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease. On the bright side, in a national survey of women of all races, the number of women who identified CVD as the leading cause of heart disease has almost doubled since 1997 Ñ although the rate of awareness was higher in white women than in black and Hispanic women. Respondents to the survey also cited confusion about "basic prevention strategies." Indications are that there is more work to do to make sure that all women, regardless of race, have clear and current information about heart disease, including how to take preventative measures to help avoid developing CVD. Some key statistical updates from the report include: * Heart disease is the leading cause of death of American women, killing more than a third of them. * More women than men die of heart disease each year. * 35.3% of deaths in American women over the age of 20, or more than 432,000, are caused by cardiovascular disease each year. * More than 200,000 women die each year from heart attacksnearly five times as many women as breast cancer. * Women are less likely than men to receive appropriate treatment after a heart attack. * Women compromise only 27% of participants in all heart-related research studies. * 58% of Caucasian women, 80% of African-American women, and 74% HispanicAmerican women are overweight or obese. * Women with diabetes are 2.5 times more likely to have heart attacks. * 48% of adult women have total cholesterol of at least 200mg/dL. * 50% of Caucasian women, 64% of African-American women, 60% of Hispanic women, and 53% of Asian/Pacific Islander women are sedentary and get no leisure time physical activity. * African-American women, despite their higher risk of heart disease, were 10% less likely to receive aspirin and 27% less likely to receive cholesterol-lowering drugs. * Some medications to treat hypertension in African-American patients work better and some work worse compared to Caucasian patients. * Among African-American women over the age of 20, 44.8% have high blood pressure. * Compared with Caucasian women, Hispanic women are nearly three times as likely to be uninsured. * Prevalence for diabetes in Mexican-American women is two times higher than Caucasian women. MYTH #1: Most women in America die from cancer. TRUTH: Heart disease is the leading cause of death of women in the U.S. Almost every minute, a woman in the U.S. dies from heart disease. Nearly five times as many women (200,000) will die from heart attacks alone this year than will die from breast cancer.[1] MYTH #2: Heart disease is a man's problem. TRUTH: Since 1984, more women than men have died of heart disease each year. Women have a 28% increased risk of dying as compared to men to die within the first year after a heart attack.[1] MYTH #3: Only older women have heart disease. TRUTH: Heart disease threatens all women, even those as young as 30 and 40.For example, the rate of sudden cardiac death of women in their 30s and 40s is increasing much faster than in men their same ageÑrising 21 percent in the 1990s.[2] MYTH #4: Most doctors know about women's risk of heart disease. TRUTH: A 2005 American Heart Association study showed that only eight percent of primary care physicians and 17 percent of cardiologists knew that heart disease kills more women than men.[3] MYTH #5: Women's and men's heart disease is the same and should be treated the same. TRUTH: In many cases, the experts don't know. The vast majority of cardiovascular research has been performed on men and/or data have not been separated out based on gender. Where men and women have been studied separately, some important differences have been identified. As importantly, however, women should be treated as aggressively as men when there is proof of benefit, such as using statins and aspirin after a heart attack. MYTH #6: Women and men with heart disease get the same care. TRUTH: Far too often, women fighting heart disease are not accurately diagnosed and do not receive the care they need when they need it. A study published in the January, 2009 issue of the journal Heart showed that among heart patients, women were less likely than men to receive medications called beta blockers, statins and ACE inhibitorsÑwhich are crucial to prevent further heart problems.[5] Women are also less likely to receive ICDs (an implantable cardioverter defibrillator, a device that helps to control irregular heartbeats) or even aspirin, following a diagnosis of heart disease.[5] Even newer studies confirm the disparities in care and treatment between men and women.[4,5] MYTH #7: If heart disease isn't in your family, it isn't your problem. TRUTH: A family history of heart disease does increase risk of developing the disease. But many women without a family history have heart attacks or heart problems. High blood-pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, kidney disease, poor dietary patterns, high sodium intake, smoking, being overweight or obese, and physical inactivity, all factors that increase your risk of heart disease. MYTH #8: You can't do anything to stop heart disease. TRUTH: Yes, you can! You can significantly reduce your risk of heart disease if you have the information you need, know the questions to ask your health provider and have the support to make heart-smart changes in your life. Visit our Prevention & Early Detection for more information.Weekwomen'sheart diseaseawarenessFebruary isMyths & Truths on Women and Heart Disease Heart disease still leading cause of death in women, according to new report1. Get a partner. Find a friend to join you in becoming more active. Exercising together will provide you both with support and encouragement to stick with exercising when you get tired or discouraged. 2. Take a walk every day. Start small with a short walk and gradually build up to at least 30 minutes or more each day. (Or take several fifteen-minute walks). Walking with a friend or spouse will make your walks even more enjoyable. 3. Move more often. When watching television, get up and walk around or march in place during commercials. Try hiding your remote get up each time you want to change the TV channel. At work hand deliver messages to colleagues instead of using the telephone or E-mail. If you're on the phone, get up and walk around. Dance when listening to music. 4. Take the stairs. Try taking the steps down (and several flights up) instead of the elevator. 5. Ditch the car. Park your car several blocks away from your destination. If you use public transportation, get off before your stop and walk the rest of the way. 6. Plan in advance. Include activities such as walking, golfing, hiking, bicycling, skating, or swimming in your vacation plans. 7. Hydrate. Be sure to drink lots of water before, during, and after you exercise. 8. Think outside the box. Try several kinds of exercise and find ones that you really enjoy. Before you begin exercising, talk with your doctor to see if you should take any precautions.8 Easy Steps to Get More Physically ActiveButternut Squash and Ginger Soup Heart-Healthy RecipeHeat the oil in a high-sided skillet or large saucepan on medium high.

Jackie Robinson's accomplishments are many and widespread. Other early pioneers are sometimes forgotten for their statistical accomplishments. Dan Bankhead was the first black to pitch in the Majors. He hit a homerun in his first at bat. Bankhead also was the first black pitcher to appear in a World Series but he didn't pitch. Satchel Paige was the first black to pitch in a World Series. Larry Doby was the first to hit a homerun in a World Series. And it wasn't until 1949 that a black pitcher faced a black batter. Don Newcombe faced Thure Olson led the Men's League with a 619 series. Daniel Bennett and Tony Vasil both had 548. Daniel Bowled 137 pins over his average of 149. Way to go Daniel. Kim Carter led the Monday Morning Blues with a 539 series. She bowled 116 pins over her average of 141. Aline Neviels had a 482 and Harry Folsom had a 479. Larry Schattle led the Sassy Seniors with a 539 series, he was followed by Dave Ward with 535 and Lee Young with 526. Roger Rathbun led the 9 Pin No Tap with 743, he was followed by John Shock, 620 and Chris Rathbun with 619. On the King's and Queen's Chris Live Oak's Nick Bracewell signed a letter of intent to play football for Division 1, Florida Atlantic University led by Coach Howard Schnellenberger. In 2008 Bracewell passed for over 2,200 yards, 31 touchdowns and just four interceptions. Although Bracewell missed the first four games of the 2009 season due to a shoulder injury, he accumulated over 1,300 yards for 17 touchdowns. Bracewell also represented the Tallahassee region in the Florida-Georgia Border War All-Star game on Jan. 9. Florida defeated Georgia 28-7. Bracewell transferred to Lafayette High School in 2008 and credits his accomplishments to the leadership of Head Coach Joey Pearson and the entire Hornet coaching staff. Bracewell also had offers from Tulane University in New Orleans and Florida International University in Miami.

Don Newcombe was also the first National League pitcher to hit seven homeruns in a season. Newcombe was best known as a Dodger but ended his career with the Chunichi Dragons in Japan, the year 1962. When talking about firsts it was probably a first for the Dragons. Newcombe played 81 games for the Dragons that year mostly as an outfielder. He batted .262 with 12 homeruns. He patrolled the outfield with another first Larry Doby. The Dodgers lost the pennant in a 3 game playoff to the Giants that year. Maybe they should have signed these two guys on their way to Japan.

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.

Now you can see these amazing musicians, described by critics as "superb artists playing with precision, flair and style," perform at North Florida Community College on Thursday, Feb. 18 at Van H. Priest Auditorium, 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now. Enjoy a spectrum of musical favorites and new exciting compositions with a group the Washington Chronicle says "enthralled the audience with dazzling technique and thoughtful interpretation." Intersection "played with warmth and depth-made the melodies sing sweetly" said the New York Post and The Seattle Times calls Intersection "Superb. An emotional spectrum from the wildly irrepressible to the thoughtful and nostalgic." Hailed by the New York Times as "sensational in concert," and as a "stunning virtuoso" by the Los Angeles Times, cellist Kristina Reiko Cooper has performed as a soloist, recitalist and chamber musician throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia. Violinist Laura Frautschi has established a reputation as a versatile musician with a strong commitment to contemporary as well as classical repertoire. She regularly performs as soloist and chamber musician throughout the United States and Asia. Grammy nominated pianist John Novacek, regularly tours the Americas, Europe, and Asia as a solo recitalist, chamber musician and concerto soloist. He has performed at venues such as the Kennedy Center, Avery Fisher Hall, Paris'Theatre des Champs-Elysees and London's Wigmore Hall. Kristina (cello), Laura (violin) and John (piano) have individually achieved enviable successes as soloists and chamber musicians in the world of classical music, but each have effectively ventured beyond circumscribed artistic borders, exploring new music, world music, jazz and pop. The uniqueness of the group is in tapping to the full these highly varied backgrounds, in shows that seamlessly fuse the traditional and the surprising, the premeditated and the improvisatory, and of course their easy verbal interplay with each other and with the audience. "Diamond-hard brilliance, uncommonly poetic depths...breathtaking in precision, dexterity and unanimity of attack. Stunning." Los Angeles Times.

David Peterson is a rare combination: a savvy independent recording artist and a bluegrass singer who cherishes tradition. His voice has that lofty quality that carries from mountain top to mountain top. It's powerful, complete and saturated with Bill Monroe and Jimmy Martin's blues. ABoston native, he's not somebody who would have been issued a bluegrass license at birth. But Peterson learned the music from a deacon at his church and as music writer Robert Oermann likes to say, there's nobody as zealous as a convert. When he got serious about the mandolin, the guitar and bluegrass music in 1995, Peterson left his track of becoming a minister to pursue music. Now, Dave preaches bluegrass with a missionary zeal, writes songs, sings, records and travels everywhere spreading the bluegrass message Banjo picker Charlie Cushman has played with the best of the best including Merle Haggard, Amy Grant, Marty Raybon, Ricky Skaggs, Tony Rice, Charlie McCoy, the Osborne Brothers, Mel Tillis, Charlie Pride, Del McCoury, Vassar Clements, David Peterson&1946 BandJim Lauderdale, Tom T.

More on stockpiling, please!" A: You got it! While my column is titled "The Coupon Queen," it's no secret that I am also a queen of stockpiling. Stockpiling and couponing go hand in hand. Stockpiling is crucial to saving big on groceries. Smart stockpilers follow three rules: • They wait to buy a product until the price hits its lowest point in a typical grocery store's 12-week pricing cycle. • They buy a little more than their household needs at the immediate moment. • And they use all available coupons to reduce the price of the items they purchase to stockpile. On many products, grocery stores and supermarkets rotate through a range of prices in a fairly predictable pattern. During each 12-week period, the price of an item will reach a high point and a low point. Most of the time, the price of a given product fluctuates somewhere in between. Shoppers intent on saving the most money on items they purchase regularly will only buy products that they need when the price hits the lowest point in the cycle. Then the second element of the strategy comes into play: buying more than the household needs at the immediate moment. When the price of an item is at its lowest point in the cycle, we know that the product won't be this inexpensive again for almost three months' time. For the biggest savings, a smart shopper must buy about what the household will consume during the next 12 weeks. Volume purchasing when the price of an item is at its lowest is key. Even shoppers who use no coupons but who stockpile groceries, cleaning products and personal care items can easily cut their grocery bills 30-40 percent or more annually. To help illustrate this, let me tell you about a sale on crackers that I recently enjoyed. A popular brand of crackers was on sale for 99 cents a box, definitely the lowest price I'd seen in the current price cycle. Normally, the crackers' sale price hovers around $2.49 a box. The regular, non-sale price? $3.29 a box. The expiration date on the crackers was four months away, so I felt comfortable buying 15 boxes, knowing our family enjoys these and would likely consume a box a week. At 99 cents a box, 15 boxes cost $14.85. Had I not stockpiled them and instead simply purchased one box each week, paying whatever price the crackers happened to be selling for, I would pay much more over time. This week's crackers would cost 99 cents, but I'd pay about $2.49 a box during most other weeks and as much as $3.29 one week during the cycle. That would put my total expenditure for 15 boxes of crackers at $36.65, more than double what I spent buying all 15 boxes during the rock-bottom sale. Without any coupons at all, I saved almost 60 percent on the price of the crackers and I won't have to buy crackers again for more than three months. Now, let's not forget the third element: using all available coupons on products when the prices hit their lowest point! During this cracker sale, I had three $1 coupons and six coupons that offered $1 off for the purchase of two boxes of the crackers. The dollar coupons made three boxes totally free; the six other coupons dropped the remaining boxes into the 50-cent range. My end total was just $5.85 for 15 boxes of crackers, a total savings of 84 percent of the price of purchasing one box each week! Now, stockpiling does require a little space to create your own "store at home." I devote a corner of my basement to stockpiling. While it does not take up a large amount of square footage, it does look like a small-scale supermarket, with shelves lined with cereal, juices, pasta, canned and jarred foods, as well as toothpaste, shampoo, cleaning products and more. I purchased all of these during periods when the price of an item was at its lowest point and used coupons to cut the price even more. Now when we need another box of cereal, jar of pasta sauce or bottle of shampoo, instead of running to the store and paying whatever the price of the item happens to be, we go downstairs and "shop" for what we need.

(Click here to view a video highlighting the Ollivanders experience, featuring commentary from Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson). Universal Orlando Resort has worked closely with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and the Warner Bros. Harry Potter brand team to make this moment as authentic, magical and immersive as possible for guests a theme carried throughout the entire experience at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. "When guests visit Ollivanders, they will instantly feel like they're in the shop from the films. It's an intimate, singlewindowed building, with the same signs, colors and other details read about in the books and seen in the films," said Alan Gilmore, art director of the Harry Potter films and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. "But more importantly, visitors to Ollivanders will experience for themselves the magical moment that forever changed Harry's life." Inside Ollivanders, visitors will be surrounded by thousands of multi-colored dusty wand boxes stacked on shelves from floor to ceiling. They will be welcomed by an inquisitive Wandkeeper, who will guide them through an enchanting experience to find their very own wand. First the Wandkeeper will ask the guest a few special questions and then select the first wand for them to try. Just like Harry, the guest will be prompted by the Wandkeeper to give the wand a wave, and a series of magical mishaps will occur until the right fit is found. In addition to the magic featured in Ollivanders, guests will experience many other magical happenings at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, including a Howler featured in the Owl Post shop front window whose ranting can be heard by guests as they pass by; The Monster Book of Monsters in Dervish and Banges that will snarl and growl at anyone who tries to get too close, and the Hog's Head which can be seen puffing his jowls at visitors who visit the Hog's Head pub. Inspired by J.K. Rowling's compelling stories and characters and faithful to the visual landscapes of the Warner Bros.'films The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal's Islands of Adventure will provide Continued From Page 2 visitors with a one-of-akind experience complete with multiple themed attractions, shops and an eating establishment. This completely immersive environment will transcend generations and bring the wonder and magic of the amazingly detailed Harry Potter books and films to life. Universal Orlando Resort There are many ways to enjoy your Orlando vacation but there is only one Universal Orlando Resort.
